Mapping the way to energy efficiency MOTRIL COUNCIL is working hard to make the town energy-efficient. The Sustainability Department, led by Councillor Jose Luis Chica, is tracing an energy consumption map to study the possibility of introducing renewable sources to the town. Motril’s buildings will then be added to a database depending on their energyefficiency status. This way each building will undergo specific refurbishment works to adapt to European standards in relation to green energies. The database will also help to reduce energy consumption and select the most suitable renewable energy systems for the town.

Cambridge and Edinburgh universities have shown their interest in the project, named ‘Smart Energy Motril’, which is part of a joint agreement between Motril Town Council and Granada University. The aim of the council is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent, at the same time as increasing the use of renewable energy sources and improving energy efficiency by 20 per cent. The 'Smart Energy Motril’ plan also comprises the improvement of mobility in the city. To this end, the council is considering a new plan for car parks located next to those areas which have the most traffic flow.

Local hotels’ better figures HOTELS on the Costa Tropical are facing a traditionally difficult month with encouraging figures. According to the Costa Tropical Hotel Owners Association, hotels have occupancy rates of about 75 per cent at the start of September. They even expect full occupancy in the first two weekends of the month. From families enjoying special offers to couples with no children,

the tourist profile gradually changes throughout the month of September. This change is especially apparent from September 10, the day on which children go back to school. From that day on hotel owners are especially worried about the weather, as rain can make visitors cancel their reservations. Bahia Tropical Hotel manager Pedro Molina supports the school

year starting a day later as a way to support hotels. Among the advantages when booking their holidays in September are mild temperatures, less crowded beaches and better prices.

Expat l ve hunt Britons move abroad in search of ‘The One’

F

OUR out of 10 Britons who moved abroad last year were seeking a new love in their life. A determining factor of love being a priority for expat life is age, with more than half in the 30-39 bracket willing to consider emigrating in search of finding ‘The One’, according to a new survey. There are 35,375 Britons registered as resident in Spain between these ages. Men are also more romantic than women when searching for love, with more than 46 per cent of males willing to consider life abroad in the hope of exchanging ‘I dos’ in a foreign language, compared with 31 per cent of females.

Thieves caught TWO men have been arrested for allegedly stealing plastic containers from a watermelon warehouse in Castell de Ferro (Granada).

These large plastic containers known as a ‘box’ in the warehouse are in high demand in Almeria, where the thieves are paid €30 for each of them, said police. The Guardia Civil watched the premises after 30 ‘boxes’ to the value of €2,700 were stolen at the end of August.

World’s first beer vending machine is patented THREE business associates in Granada have patented the world’s first beer vending machine. The idea came to one of them after being served warm beer at a music festival following a 15minute wait in a queue. Their ‘Autobarman’ has barrels

of beer which are kept cold and need to be changed once empty, something which they say would create another job. Meanwhile, they say, bars would serve beers in less time and fewer queues, while staff can spend more time on other drinks which are more profitable.

They say the hardest thing to get right has been the pressure and foam on the beer, and that they had to do months of research to check that such a vending machine hadn’t already been invented. They are mainly promoting it for trade fairs, sports matches

and similar events, where there is normally only one very busy bar, and drinks have to be expensive because of the price of setting it up, so fewer people consume them. They insist it will not put anyone out of work. It is currently being tested at a company in the city of Granada

and would be for indoor use only, to make sure no alcohol is sold to minors or consumed in the street. It can serve non-alcoholic beer. Cards or tokens for the vending machine could be sold with tickets, only to adults. Now, the trio is looking for investors and private financing.

A TOTAL of 260 people died in work-related accidents between January and July this year. This was 7.5 per cent fewer than during the same period in 2012 when 281 employees lost their lives. Most of the accidents - 216 - took place during the working day, but the remaining 44 occurred while travelling to or from work. Services industries accounted for 129 fatal accidents. Despite fewer fatalities than during the first half of 2012 there was a 20 per cent increase in heart attacks, brain haemorrhages and other conditions, causing 113 deaths.

Poverty is not just about income it’s about what is done with the money. Accommodation, nutrition and education should of course be priorities, rather then spending a fortune on fancy flat-screen TVs, designer pit bull dogs,

cigarettes and alcohol. And this is stellar advice relevant for every level of income. But going back to the ‘stale bread’ comment, learning how to cook can make a big difference to a budget and a person’s health. And cooking fresh food doesn’t have to be a challenge or terribly expensive with a little bit of know-how. So rather than stocking up on expensive convenience food and microwave dinners, maybe it’s an idea to invest in a good basic cookbook and a little bit of enthusiasm in the kitchen. And by the way, stale bread as it happens, is the best ingredient for toast, tasty soup croutons and of course here in Andalucía, the totally inexpensive and delicious salmorejo dish!

Loan deal to pay for new meters THE European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Spanish electric utility company Iberdrola have signed a loan contract for €200 million. The loan will support the modernisation of the electricity distribution network throughout Spain, improving its overall reliability and safety, they claim. The loan will co-finance a comprehensive investment programme designed to reinforce and modernise Iberdrola’s electricity distribution network. A large number of supply points in the full range of voltages operated by Iberdrola will be connected to the existing network. Furthermore, the programme will help pay for the installation of new digital electricity meters to meet Spanish legislation, which requires the deployment of digital meters for residential customers by 2018. The investment programme provides for the installation of up to 1.8 million new meters. The EIB has a long-standing relationship with Iberdrola, one of the largest power distribution companies in Spain, serving 10.7 million customers. The EIB has provided a total of €3.6 billion for projects in Spain since the beginning of the year, of which almost €1 billion is in the Spanish energy sector.

Leaving the country in search of work

ONO is to take on Europe

MORE and more of Spain’s young are leaving the country in search of work. The numbers of Spaniards under the age of 30 emigrating has gone up by 40.9 per cent since the economic crisis first hit Spain in 2008, according to the National Statistics Institute (INE). And the number of people in the 30 to 34 year age group has risen by 41.4 per cent. In total 14,084 of the 59,724 Spaniards who left the country in 2012 were aged between 20 and 34. But that figure is dwarfed by the numbers of non-Spaniards who moved away. In total 476,748 people left Spain. That is because many

SPANISH cable TV, phone and internet provider ONO will represent the country in the European business awards. It has been chosen to compete in the Millcom Award for Environmental and Corporate Sustainability category. It claims to have robust environmental policies based on saving energy and thus reducing CO2 emissions. The awards, held every two years, will be judged in April 2014. Despite the economic climate ONO is still growing. Sales were up 4.1 per cent in the first quarter of the year.

FORCED ABROAD: Looking for work. immigrants who moved here during good times have been unable to find jobs, and are deciding to move back to their home countries. Unemployment stands at 26.26 per cent with 55.13 per cent of under25s jobless. There are fears that a ‘brain drain’ effect might be taking place. A UGT trade union

report stated that more educated and well trained people are leaving. Top destination is Germany, which received 21,000 Spaniards in 2012. Other popular countries are the UK and France. In South America, Ecuador followed by Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Peru are all popular.

Shoppers need to look out for more than the bargains WHILE with my family shopping in the Chinese shop on the road from Quesada to Benijofar, I was approached by five men of either Russian or East European origin. All were tall, in their 30s, and one asked for help reaching some goods. I then realised a man behind had opened my bag and removed my purse. Though aged 70, I gave chase and got it back, and other family members then gave chase as the would-be thieves made their escape in a silver Volkswagen Passat. I was not the only person in the shop to be robbed. The shop staff - although they had it on CCTV - did not even call the police. All shoppers should be aware. Olga Clifton, by email

No warning signs I READ with interest ‘Signs needed over crime threat’ (Letters Issue 1469). I was subjected to a major theft of my bag, losing passports, driver’s licence, credit cards, keys, and money while shopping in the Mercadona supermarket in the central commercial centre, La Marina, Finestrat. Only due to my insistence were the police called, and the shop did not even take my details, acting as though it was normal for thefts, though there were no warning signs in the area. John Cook, Benidorm

Time for action I AGREE with Allen Everington (Letters Issue 1469) that it is about time something was done about the misuse of parking bays for the disabled. The police should carry clamps in their cars and as they also patrol on foot, should also have nearby access to them so that any vehicle not displaying a ‘Disabled’ sticker is automatically clamped and the owner fined when they go to get the clamp removed. Once put into effect people would stop wrongly parking in these bays. At the Javea Arenal Beach car park about 10 days ago, a motor-cycle policeman stopped to check my blue badge when I was sitting in my car, but a van with hazard lights flashing being unloaded by an able-bodied man parked in two disabled spots was ignored.

Anti-Catholic?

www.euroweeklynews.com

Why is this? Also four days ago on the Javea Arenal service road, a motor-cycle policeman asked about my badge which was on my windscreen - just as I got back into my car. So I think Javea are now starting to really check on this. Let’s hope others will also follow suit. Mick Scarles, Javea, Alicante

Lack of service DAYS after reading ‘Passport help’ (Letters, Issue 1469) praising a company for acting professionally, I found myself visiting Puerto Banus, Marbella, on a shopping trip. While I expect to pay a higher price in such surrounds, it would be nice if good service came with the price... and it definitely did not at the port-side café where my wife and I sat to enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. Having ordered an American coffee and a coke, the waiter returned and did not even bother to pour the coke

I ALWAYS look forward to reading the EWN when on holiday in Spain; however, on many occasions I come away with the impression of an antiCatholic agenda from some contributors. One recent article amounted essentially to a pro-abortion rant, attacking Catholic teaching on this subject. In reality, the Catholic Church quite reasonably supports the scientific fact that a newly-conceived child in the womb is a unique individual with a unique DNA, which will be retained throughout its life (assuming it is lucky enough to escape the none too tender mercies of the abortionist, back street or high street). I come from Ireland, a country which until recently (although that is about to change, thanks to the abortion lobby and a campaigning/ biased media) disallowed abortion. Incidentally, the so-called Catholic ‘dark ages’ (a favourite cliché of the historically ignorant) were a period of unprecedented human achievement; Oxford and Cambridge Universities being two notable high points.

The rot set in in the 16th century, about the time of the Protestant Reformation! Eric Conway, La Mata, Torrevieja Editor’s note: The EWN is not anti-Catholic and the various views expressed and opinions published are not necessarily those of the publishers or staff.

Woeful Africa IT is said that the ruination of Africa is charity. I am inclined to agree. Explain to me the Save the Children campaigns of which there are many. Am I wrong in thinking they create more children who go on to create more children and so on? The problem gets worse as most of the areas that they live in can’t support their needs and they are in constant need of food aid so they become aid reliant, not unlike some areas of the UK. And to add to that we have to save their animals, too - lions, rhinos donkeys, etc - thus they become benefit reliant. The point of this message is who benefits most? The charity business, the monster behind all these good deeds. Still one good thing comes from all this, we will never run out of lookylooky men. C G, by email

Good hunting WITH reference to ‘Car concern’ (Letters Issue 1467) I know of people who have had their vehicle classifications changed in the log book by dealers. In the one case, this was done for a charge of €75, so check this out, and good hunting! Also, thanks a lot for a very good newspaper. Bob, Sedella, Malaga

Go on, complain! I WANT to comment on the ‘Stop complaining letter’ (Issue 1468). It is a pity Clive Graham gets annoyed when he hears people complaining about Spain. People have a right to complain not only about Spain but England also. I was advised to come here on health grounds. I also survived the Second World War and its aftermath and was in a Cromwell tank. If people want to complain let them do so, for believe me they have plenty to complain about. Hal Rockliffe Address withheld upon request

Democracy at work restoring the credibility of politicians

considers himself something of an atheist, but he is nevertheless a man born of pure Jewish stock. Therefore, to my mind his decision to vote against attacking a Muslim country, which is utterly anti-Jewish and would side with Iran in its quest to obliterate Israel at the drop of a turban, also gives quite a boost to his own credibility. It did get me thinking that if the leader of the Labour party had been a Muslim (which I’ve no doubt they will be one day!) and Israel had been suspected of committing some unacceptable act, would that person have reacted with such an unbiased opinion? Somehow I think not. Having said all that, despite this week’s decision to stay out, should Assad take it as a weakening attitude by the West and its allies, and therefore give him carte blanche to massacre and commit atrocities at will, I am fully in favour of another parliamentary vote on the situation. With that may come on him and his cohorts all the force and retribution of a reversed decision. Let’s hope it never comes to that. Keep the faith Love Leapy Website: leapylee.co.uk.

WELL, what a result! Firstly, of course, I was delighted to see the British House of Commons finally took Leapy’s advice and voted against interference in Syria’s problems. (Any time, fellas!) Secondly, the result was a wonderfull example of British democracy in full glorious flow. In most countries, particularly those of the Middle East, a result of this nature would have probably led to disgruntled losers rioting and spilling blood in the streets. Far from being an embarrassing rout for David Cameron, I think the dignified and immediate acceptance of a result he clearly hadn’t been looking for, showed a strong, highly democratic leader bending, without recrimination or derogatory reactions, to the will of Parliament’s EAPY EE elected members. DIGNIFIED: David Cameron.

Shop wisely in high-heels SHOPPING in stilettos could help shoppers spend more wisely, according to research conducted at the Brigham Young University in the US. Marketing professor at the university, Jeffrey Larson claims his team found that when consumers’ minds are focused on staying balanced, they are more likely to consider all of their buying options and choose a mid-range product, as opposed to something high-end or of low quality. In order to examine the effect of physical balance in relation to the nature of consumer shopping, the team tested various scenarios including questioning subjects on particular products while they stood on one foot whilst making a

decision about a purchase or leaning back to a reclined position in a chair whilst shopping online. The study, published in the Journal of Marketing Research, found subjects focused on balancing were more likely to buy a 42-inch screen television for €340 as opposed to a bigger, more expensive model or a smaller, cheaper one. Researchers concluded the general public should be more aware of how physical elements, including balance, can influence the consumer market in the buying decisions they make.

Certainly sounds like no fun

WELL-HEELED: Shopping in stilettos could help you make a more balanced buying decision.

THE Japanese Geisha facial treatment Uguisu no fun, made from Nightingale faeces sounds like no fun to us, but despite the origin of the treatment its popularity is growing in the western world. The treatment is said to hydrate the skin, making it feel softer and look brighter. High-end Japanese spas around the world regularly offer the faeces facial, but at a cost. The Shizuka spa in New York charges €136 for the privilege and the substance can also be

purchased online but costs an average of €15 per ounce. For those worried about the smell, users on online forums have described a medicinal or musty smell and some say it doesn’t smell at all. The nightingale droppings also come from specific farms in Japan where they breed and raise birds and keep them on a very strict diet of organic seeds. The droppings are collected, sterilised with UV lights, before being dried out and ground into powder .

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 December 21) You of all people understand the importance of the spiritual side of life. Despite being successful in your own right there is the need to bring this to other people. In sharing your experiences this year you come to a better understanding yourself.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) With a lot of pent-up energy and not a little determination the month is off to a strong start with you. Be aware, however, that treading on the toes of influential people is not to be advised.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Your practical streak is in full force. Over the next months you will bring much benefit to those around you, in financial terms perhaps, but also spiritually.

KIDS’ STUFF

1. According to the Italian writer Carlo Collodi, which famous character was created by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village, he was made as a wooden puppet, but dreamed of becoming a real boy? 2. Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator was the sequel to which 1964 children’s novel by Roald Dahl? 3. Created by the American writer Dr Seuss, what is the name of the bitter, grouchy, cave-dwelling creature with a heart ‘two sizes too small’, who lives on snowy Mount Crumpit, a steep high mountain just north of Whoville, home of the merry and warm-hearted Whos? 4. In which fairy tale does a young lad living with his widowed mother sell their milk cow to an old man he meets who offers ‘magic beans’ in exchange for the animal? 5. ‘Make Good Use of Bad Rubbish’ is the environmentallyfriendly message of which fictional creatures?

AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Your lot is to be optimistic and positive. Perhaps in the last few months there was the need to take on the problems of others. However, you absolutely must get a balance here.

weeks. This feeling has been one of spirituality. Your thoughts have been deeper than usual and the sense that there is more to life is acute. TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) In the last few weeks there may have been a sense of being not quite in control. That is something to deal with this week. Real progress will only be made when you have faced what is not wanted.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Your very nature can lead to internal struggles. In the coming months, however, the truth becomes clear. What is outside of your experience now will become a part of your make-up.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) You are a great charmer but it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Is there the possibility that your romantic life needs tidying up? Perhaps the number of irons that you have in the fire is causing problems?

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) There has been a very strong feeling through these last few

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) The ever-inquisitive part of your brain is in high spirits. Clearly there is much to be known and enjoyed over the coming months. Begin at the beginning though. Before you throw yourself into a spiritual or business endeavour, get the facts.

SU DOKU HOW TO PLAY Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3X3 box contains the digits 1-9. There’s no maths involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Certainly there have been times that you felt crestfallen. Sometimes circumstances bring us down. Avoid believing in the myth of ʻwhat should have beenʼ. What you are is not what others see but what you feel inside.

Only in Japan A HYBRID of the pizza and burger has gone on sale in Japan. Called the ‘megaburgerpizza’ the experimental dish was created by Pizza Little Party and is made with 400g of beef burger patties with pickles, onions, cheese, meat sauce, ketchup and mustard sandwiched between two pizza crusts as buns. They say it offers the perfect option for fast food lovers who can’t decide between having a burger or pizza. The dish is on sale for a limited time at Pizza Little Party in Kyoto until November.

UK’s Greek yoghurt tangle THE UK Greek yoghurt market is suffering from an identity crisis. A ruling passed by the UK High Court in April determines that only a yoghurt produced in Greece can be labelled as Greek, leading to confusion among consumers. Some producers have managed to adapt to this new situation by changing their labelling to ‘strained yoghurt.’ Such is the case of American producer Chobani, that they took advantage of these circumstances to introduce new flavours to the market. Others, however, are finding more difficulties getting used to it. Greek dairy company Fage, that lodged the complaint originating

CONFUSING: Some Greek yoghurt sold in the UK does not follow traditional standards.

this situation, is seeing how UK retailers have reached an agreement with other Greek yoghurt manufacturers to sell their products. Oddly enough, one of these manufacturers is selling yoghurt that actually comes from Greece, but cannot be considered Greek.

Greek company Kri Kri has been accused of allegedly not following the Hellenic standards when manufacturing their products, thus selling Greek yoghurt in the eyes of the UK law, but not in Greece’s. All in all, UK consumers will have to think twice before buying a Greek, or strained, yoghurt.

Burgers can stay RARE beefburgers can remain on restaurant menus after a judge rejected claims by food watchdogs that they are a health risk. A London restaurant had been told to stop serving the burgers until they took certain safety precautions claiming they posed a potential risk, but the restaurant took the matter further and has been backed by a judge who threw out the ruling.

Miracle berry changes all TRUTH is often stranger than fiction. A small berry has the ability to make beer taste like chocolate and vinegar like apple juice. Known as the miracle fruit, this berry unchains

a series of reactions in people’s taste buds and turns sour food into sweet. The miracle fruit, officially named Synsepalum Dulcificum, was first introduced in Europe at the beginning of the 18th century by French explorers who brought it from Africa. Its pulp contains miraculin, a natural sugar substitute that completely masks acid and sour flavours for a period of between 30 minutes to two hours after it is eaten. This way, eating a

simple and plain lemon can turn into an exciting experience with no trace of sourness whatsoever. Food establishments in New York organise ‘flavour trips’ at $15 (€11.30) per trip. In these food tasting events, participants try several dishes after eating the miracle fruit to put their taste buds to the limit. The Synsepalum Dulcificum is sold in form of freeze-dried granules, tablets or the actual berry, often frozen due to its high perishability.

Start to prepare the garden for Christmas ONE of the joys of having a property in Spain is the pleasure of experiencing a colourful garden at Christmas. A garden that motivates you to sit out and enjoy the winter sun and perhaps also to work on the garden in conditions that are often more like spring than the middle of winter, even if you need to wear a light jumper. There are five main things to be done, starting now, to ensure you achieve this. Yes, September is not too early for plans and actions. 1. Resist doing the major annual garden cut back in the

autumn as you would have done in Northern Europe. The cut back is best done during the months of January and February. 2. Throughout the autumn aim to prolong the flowering of existing perennials and shrubs by continuously deadheading as soon as flowers die.

ROSES: Reliable in warmer spots.

Also cut back unsightly branches to stimulate new flowering shoots. If autumn is dry continue to water. 3. Stimulate the early flowering of shrubs and trees that often do not flower until early to mid January. The three main requirements are to plant selected plants in south facing beds sheltered from cold winds, to keep the plants watered and to feed with a high potassium feed. Shelter can be provided by walls, glass screens, hedges or fences. 4. If your garden is not already fully planted plant some of the shrubs and trees listed below during October and November. 5. Purchase a selection of plants in flower just before Christmas. These can be for any areas of the garden. Listed below are some of the garden plants that can be in flower at Christmas. Xmas flowering trees

THE most reliable late flowering trees are: The strawberry tree (arbutus unedo) which has bright red fruits to brighten a corner of the garden. The fruits are edible but we prefer to leave them as a winter treat for wild birds. The galan de noche that might be persuaded to pump out its heavy perfume on Christmas eve. Of the early flowering trees the delebeta and bon accuel varieties of mimosa are spectacular with their branches covered in yellow flowers. Another tree to plant this autumn, or next spring for the following Christmas, is the justice tree which can be covered with large bunches of attractive white flowers throughout December. Shrubs Lantanas are reliable in most gardens and also hibiscus in warmer spots. Likewise roses if they have been deadheaded,

In a warm corner poinsettias up to two metres in height can be the perfect replacement for a garden Christmas tree. Climbing Shrubs Bougainvilleas, bignonias, blue and white solanums and the perfumed white and yellow varieties of jasmines can produce some of the most spectacular year end displays. If you are lucky both the blue and white plumbago can also be in flower although not at there best. During the autumn ensure you trim to shape.

seasonal pansies, busy lizzies, stocks, wallflowers and also petunias which are now available almost all the year round. If the autumn has been warm and wet you may be lucky to have self seeded nasturtiums brightening up the front of beds and cascading over walls. Also colourful portulacas can often be coaxed to flower through to the New Year. Although strictly a perennial, forced primulas are often best treated as annuals and purchased each autumn.

Succulents Several succulents can come into flower around Xmas, notably the red hot poker aloes and aeoniums with their bright yellow spires of flowers and various Xmas cacti.

Christmas bulbs Our favourites include pots of specimen amaryllis and hyacinths, and in warm corners of rockeries aneno-mies, crocuses, miniature daffodils and freesias. These bulbs need to be planted up during the next month. Naturally you can also wait until December and buy pots of bulbs just coming into flower. Ensure that bulbs in pots and in the garden are kept damp. We hope these ideas will lead to more colourful gardens at the year end and heavy frosts don’t come until January or February.

Winter annuals The most reliable for colourful displays are the

Perennials The frutescens and coronarium chrysanthemums and euryops daisy give reliable colour in many gardens. If you are very lucky a few margeritas may still be in flower.

5 - 11 September 2013 Axarquía - Málaga East

Lack of jobs - not spirit - to blame! Do you feel that many of the young who are out of work in Spain lack the true grit to get jobs, as indicated for their counterparts in a UK-based report?

F

INDING work for the young is a tough challenge in Spain, and though some jobless are not as hungry as they might be to find employment, the economic situation is making life very difficult for them, according to many expatriates. Meanwhile, a UK government minister has revealed that almost half of Britain’s jobless aged 1624 are not seeking work and are classed as economically inactive. Katherine Pate and Patricia Johnston, two retirees who now work as charity shop volunteers in Arroyo de la Miel on the Costa del Sol, feel that rather than showing true grit, the current working climate in Spain makes finding work a struggle for young people. “I think it’s very difficult for young people in Spain, according to what you hear in the news,” said Katherine. “A lot of the young ones don’t have any money and the parents don’t have any money. That’s why a lot of them go to England to find jobs.”

AMY REALEY: Students are graduating, yet struggling to find work. Patricia agrees. “I think young people find it very difficult to find jobs. I think the government could do a bit more to get them out working, even volunteering, anything to gain experience.” Amy Realey, a 20-year-old student nurse from the UK on holiday in Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca, says finding work is difficult for young people everywhere as there “is not much work out there, anywhere. Some friends have finished university

KATHERINE PATE and PATRICIA JOHNSTON: Young should have more help to gain experience.

STREET TALK but can’t get work within their degree subjects so work in bars, etc.” Amy’s mother Alison agrees: “I’m not sure what the situation is

KATIE FORREST: The economic crisis is the problem in Spain, not the attitude of the young. like with Spanish youngsters, but I wouldn’t want to be starting out again. People are studying hard yet having to take menial jobs.” Katie Forrest who lives on the Costa del Sol blames the economic crisis - not the lack of grit among youngsters - for high enemployment. “I think they’re trying to get work but there’s nothing. The crisis has hit Spain worse than anywhere else, shops are closing, people are taking things out of bins, and it’s awful.”

Matt Taylor, a roofer from the Scottish borders visiting his holiday home in Formentera del Segura in Costa Blanca believes young people in Spain are more likely to go out and find work. “Youngsters here are different, they seem better behaved and more family orientated and if they get a job hold it and work hard.” But John Poole who runs a kitchen fitting business on the Costa Blanca disagrees, saying the general attitude towards work is not what it used to be. “Kids these days are too distracted by computers and television. They seem to think work will just fall on their laps. In my day you had to work and work hard to survive. There is always work if you work hard enough to find it.” And Roy Groves of Torre in Almeria feels although things are tough, in the main those that really want to work can find jobs. “Some Spanish I know have taken unpaid jobs just to get work experience.”

Spain will make new Ford S-Max F

ORD has revealed the new S-Max concept. It is a new sport activity vehicle that will be produced at the manufacturer’s factory in Almusafes (Valencia) from the first third of 2015. The new S-Max Concept employs the latest Ford global design language with a high mounted grille, swept-back headlamps and an exclusive treatment of the vehicle’s lower fascia. And the original S-Max profile has been honed with the front bonnet sweeping into the front screen, which in turn flows into the arc of the roof to create a unique glass roof graphic. This

silhouette surrounds a spacious and versatile interior that offers anything from four- to seven-seat configurations. Further exterior design cues include a feature line running along the side of the vehicle and distinctive headlamps featuring Organic LED. The S-Max Concept interior is an expression of design, convenience, connectivity, flexibility, and craftsmanship say the manufacturers. The front cabin places the focus firmly on the driver. Shapes and forms combine in a high-set instrument panel that

cuts back in the centre console. High quality materials give the interior a sophisticated aura, Ford claims. The Ford S-Max Concept also employs Ford features and technologies to provide customers with new levels of connectivity and well-being as well as safety, convenience, and driving appeal. The concept car features

the all-new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with turbocharging, twinindependent variable camshaft timing and further advanced technologies to enhance power and fuel economy. The Ford SYNC system sits at the heart of the vehicle’s advanced

connectivity features. Ford SYNC delivers wireless internet access for passengers, supported by a tablet docking station that allows second row occupants to integrate their personal devices into the vehicle. SYNC also enables additional features to improve health and well-

Sophisticated communications and sensor systems provide the S-Max Concept with detailed information about the driving environment, to enhance awareness and safety.

CONTEMPORARY: XJ has a modern vibe.

Jaguar updates sports saloon THE 2014 model year Jaguar XJ is the latest in a long line from the luxury car maker. The sports saloon incorporates enhanced features to create a contemporary Jaguar. It is offered with a choice of a 2.0litre 4-cylinder i4 turbocharged petrol engine, diesel and supercharged petrol 3.0-litre V6 engines and four 5.0-litre V8 petrol engines, one normally aspirated and

three supercharged. These engines are mated to Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox which offers a broad spread of ratios for a combination of smooth-shifting, economy and driver control. The 2014 XJ, available later this year from €98,950, features a range of enhanced interior features focused on the rear cabin of the car

resulting in the most accomplished Jaguar luxury saloon, according to the manufacturer. The rear passenger compartment of the 2014 LWB car includes two individual ‘airline style’ reclining seats which both feature cushion and squab adjustment, three massage programmes, lumbar adjustment and two memory settings for each seat.

TOMORROW (Friday) night, a full house of around 90,000 will watch England play Moldova in a vital World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium. Elsewhere around Europe, Wales visit Macedonia, Scotland play Belgium, the Republic of Ireland entertain Sweden and Northern Ireland play Portugal... the men’s and women’s US Open tennis championship finals take place on Saturday and Sunday... the European Equestrian event is being held in Malmo, Sweden... the world archery championships are in progress in Nottingham... and this weekend motor racing fans will flock to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix where Lewis Hamilton will be aiming to repeat last year’s victory. Sergio Perez was second and Fernando Alonso third in 2012. FOOTBALL - Liverpool making their best start to a League season for 19 years are top of the Premiership after beating arch-rivals Manchester United 1-0 at Anfield last weekend, Daniel Sturridge scoring the fourth minute winner.

Battle of TOGS for the Summer Eclectic winner TOGS played the final of the Summer Eclectic 2013, the most closely fought Eclectic in its history. The Summer Eclectic began on May 26 with selected games qualifying for the title. The winner is the player who has the best nett score over these qualifying games, the nett being their best gross score minus half the players exact handicap at the start of the competition. The groups for the final round were carefully selected to enable those in the top group to keep an eye on each other, and to heighten the excitement. With four players who could claim the title, it was very exciting. Winner was John Parker who came in with a nett 59.7. In second was, Tony Child with a nett 62.3.

TOGS earlier played their second away day of the season, at El Chaparral. Unusually this course has 6 par 3’s 4’s and 5’s, making more long holes than TOGS players are used too. Winner, with five points going to the Away Day Cup rankings was Tony Child (35 points). In second was Martina Parker (31) on countback from Mike Stevens. They were followed by Dave Miles and Andrew Brooks. CLOSELY FOUGHT: Winner, John Parker.

TENNIS - We are now well into the second week of the US Open Championships at Flushing Meadows and at the time of going to print, 2012 winner Andy Murray was still going strong, as were Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Roger Federer was beaten in the fourth round by Spain’s Tommy Robredo. In the women’s section, four-time and defending champion Serena Williams is also powering along towards the final. MOTOGP - It was yet again a Spain 1-2-3 as Marc Marquez’s run of four straight MotoGP victories came to an end last Sunday when he was beaten on the last lap of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone by fellow countryman Jorge Lorenzo. In third place came Dani Pedroa with Alvaro Bautista fifth, split by the evergreen ‘Doctor’ Valentino Rossi. GB rider Cal Crutchlow finished a disappointing seventh. RUGBY LEAGUE Huddersfield Giants thrashed hapless Wakefield 40-0 to win the Super League Shield for the first time in 81 years. SPORT IN GENERAL - Phil Jones and Wayne Rooney (Man United) and Liverpool’s Glen Johnson have all pulled out of the England squad ahead of the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.... And the Bolt Usain that is - won the latest 100m race in the Diamond League meeting in Zurich. Afterwards he told Manchester United boss David Moyes that he can pass a ball and create chances as good as any footballer (he wants to play for the Reds)... and finally the Cannonball Run 2013 from London to Marbella was a huge success with more than 40 cars including Mercedes, Ferraris, Porches and Lambourghinis completing the journey of around 1,400 miles.

Figures that add up to a Bale full of money BIGGEST story of the summer transfer market in world football was undoubtedly the signing of Gareth Bale by Real Madrid in a €100 million deal. But the big question on many people’s lips is where do they get the money from? At a time when Spain is still struggling in the depths of economic gloom, unemployment stands at 26.3 per cent and millions of people are struggling after deep government spending cutbacks the message sent is clear: Real Madrid does not do austerity. But the headline figure of Bale’s €100 million cost, plus €300,000 a week wages for six years does not tell the full story. The sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal on the same day immediately recouped €50 million of the outlay, and got one of the club’s biggest earners off the books. In fact, whilst Madrid have paid out a total of m co rks Wo

€163.5 million on players including Malaga’s young star Isco (€30 million) and Asier Illarramendi (also €30 million) from Real Sociedad, they have received €114.5 million from player sales. Gonzalo Higuain’s move to Napoli raked in €37 million, and whilst Brazilian star Kaka has gone for nothing to AC Milan, he is another big earner off the books. Whilst Madrid’s net outlay over the summer has been a still respectable €51 million, it is very much manageable for the richest club in the world. That is the mantle it has taken over from Manchester United. Figures in August showed annual revenues for Madrid passed the €500 million mark, the first time any club has achieved that. The latest Deloitte Money League report calculated that Madrid had seen a rise of 11 per cent in revenues to €512.6 million. Since those figures were collated, Madrid have signed a new shirt sponsorship deal worth 30 per cent more at €30 million a year. With figures like that it becomes clear how Madrid can afford a player for

What could €100 million pay for? Approximately 3,700 nurses for a year (average cost €27,000 each) 100 million small glasses of beer 40,899 magnums of Cristal Roederer Rose vintage Champagne at Marbella Beach Club (€2,445) 12.5 million menus del dia (at €8) 446,428 of the world’s most expensive burger (€224 from Serendipity 3, New York) 7,250 Ford Focus Trends (€13,820) 4 Ferrari Spyders.

AFFORDABLE: Real Madrid’s record-breaking signing, Gareth Bale.

Yellow balls and Swedish Medal GINS played a Swedish Medal at Añoreta. The course was not only a test of golf but with the tees at their furthest point,

yet again, there were some tactical decisions to be made too, even the very best struggled to get on some of the greens in

regulation. It made for a test of skill and at times patience. Most of the protective bunkers saw a lot of the action today as they came up short of the greens. Winner was John Vertanness (75 nett) with Steve Adams second (80) and Brian Lynch third (80). For the ladies Lyn McAllister (78) was top with Anne Jones (80) second.

At Baviera GINS played a Yellow Ball Team Game. More than one team finished the game with the yellow ball intact and there were a couple of outstanding scores. Captain Derek Geelon, playing his first game since recovering from surgery, led his team into second place with a fantastic 150 points. That score was not quite good enough because Roger Davey’s team shaded it with one more point. Winning team was Roger Davey, Rafael Martin, Stef Elsey and George Reid (151). In second were Derek Geelon, Robert Durston, Diana Elliott and Derek Sibson (150).

First point on the board for Malaga team MALAGA head into the international break with their first point on the board after a well-deserved 2-2 away draw at neighbours Sevilla. Andalucian derbies are often intense encounters and this one started no differently, Diego Perotti going close for the hosts and ‘keeper Javi Varas denying Malaga midfielder Pedro Morales inside the opening 10 minutes. Sergi Darder then shot over from a tight angle for the visitors, while at the other end Kevin Gameiro struck the base of a post after Willy Caballero had blocked Alberto Moreno’s effort, before Juan Cala somehow fired over from close range. Nonetheless, it was Malaga that took the lead five minutes before the break when Morales punished a retreating Sevilla defence to strike a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box. However, the home side were back on level terms just four minutes later when Kevin Gameiro, in a clearly offside position, steered a header wide of Caballero, but the goal was allowed to stand. After the restart Duda had two decent opportunities for Malaga before Roque Santa Cruz BBVA LEAGUE - 1ª Division

restored the lead on 67 minutes, the Paraguayan slotting home after being set up by a clever pass from Darder. Once again, the advantage did not last long as Gameiro got his second of the night three minutes later when he nodded past Caballero with the officials ruling the ball had crossed the line. Malaga boss Bernd Schuster handed new signing Mounir El Hamdaoui his debut on 77 minutes and the Moroccan international looked lively after coming on for Santa Cruz, but Sevilla were almost back in front six minutes from time. A cross into the penalty area found the head of Vicente Iborra, who looped his header past a stranded Caballero, but the flag was raised for offside and the goal disallowed.

Malaga’s next game after the international break is against Rayo Vallecano at La Rosaleda on Sunday, September 15 (kick-off 7pm). Champions League
