Charity shop targeted by heartless thieves By Gabriel Pajares THIEVES broke into a charity shop and stole cash destined to help children in some of the poorest parts of the world. Not only was €100 stolen but costume jewellery meant for sale to benefit the Love a Child Foundation was taken from Pocapecunia, a Nerjabased charity shop. “It’s unbelievable. Maybe it’s the economic crisis, but it’s a pity because this act gives the town of Nerja a bad name,” shop manager Elise Brouwers (pictured) said. The Love a Child Foundation helps

Tibetan refugee children in India and Nepal, as well as poor children from Burma and Ecuador. “With the €100 stolen we could have educated a child for one year in Burma, Laos or Ecuador,” explained Elise. Now staff at the Euro Weekly News have pledged to help out with a €100 donation to make up the charity’s losses. But Pocapecunia still has to replace the stolen goods. Elise is hoping the

altruistic citizens of Nerja will step forward with donations of unwanted goods for the shop to replace those stolen. The shop first opened in December 2010, with the profits from selling secondhand clothes, paperbacks and household items going to the foundation, which was set up by John Margetson 10 years ago. Anyone interested in helping can pop in to Pocapecunia at 6 Bella Vista street in Nerja. The shop is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 1.30pm.

Uncertain future for fruit centre LA MAYORA experimental station in Algarrobo is facing an uncertain future. Ongoing debts have put the research facility under threat, and contradictory messages coming from different public bodies are confusing the situation. In a recent visit to the centre, which is dependent on the Ministry of Science and Education, Member of the National Parliament Maria Baena and Senator Patricia Navarro admitted cutbacks would affect La Mayora. This is a clear contradiction of the national government’s sub-delegate in Malaga Jorge Hernandez Mollar’s claim that the experimental station would not reduce its activity. However, both Baena and Navarro sent a reassuring message to workers at La Mayora, promising they would do their best to prevent the closure of the centre. Members of the Socialist party in Malaga have criticised the loss of 18 per cent of La Mayora employees since the Conservative Partido Popular won the 2011 elections. Meanwhile, the director of the experimental station, which is devoted to tropical fruit production research, Enrique

Hope springs for restart of Velez tram service RECENT meetings held between the regional government’s Public Works and Housing Department and Velez-Malaga Town Council have brought hope for the town’s tram service. Both administrations have decided to put their differences aside and look for ways to relaunch the service. It was closed in June

14-year ban for ex-mayor A COURT in Malaga has banned former Competa Mayor Leovigildo Lopez Cerezo from public office for 14 years. The court considered the case proven that Lopez Cerezo illegally granted permission to build houses on plots not intended for the purpose, according to the Andalucian Urban Planning Law (LOUA). Lopez Cerezo, the court claimed,

followed a modus operandi whereby permits were granted to build agricultural-related projects when second and leisure homes were being built instead. As a consequence, the court ordered all the illegal building permits issued by the ex-mayor to be declared void after describing them as fraud. During the course of the trial the court dismissed the existence of a criminal

network in Competa and attributed the granting of illegal permits to a defective administrative action. The ban follows a seven-year one imposed on Lopez Cerezo, two Competa councillors and a council worker by Malaga Provincial Court in 2012. At that time Lopez Cerezo claimed a lack of knowledge of the urban planning law, but the court considered that he had been fully aware of it.

VAST there! If you hear a refrain of ‘shiver me timbers’ and are accused of being a landlubber, it is because today (Thursday) is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. From small beginnings it has swept the world and is now entrenched in 40 countries worldwide. The holiday was created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy) of Albany, Oregon in the US, initially as a private joke. The native English West Country dialect is considered the origin of the ‘pirate accent’. That has led to difficulties for Spaniards wanting to join in the fun. No one can figure out what a Spaniard would say for shiver me timbers, shake-a-leg or bilge rat. There are whole web pages discussing the thorny problem. But they all agree that ‘aaaar’

Benito de Soto (1805-1830) was Captain of the ‘Burla Negra’ and the most notorious of the last generation of Atlantic pirates. He was one of the most bloodthirsty pirates of any age, murdering crews and sinking their ships. The Burla Negra was wrecked off Cadiz.

Other odd stories told to DWP officers include a claimant who, using a fake ID, said her skin colour had changed after a road accident; a man who blamed his evil twin; and a woman who claimed she wasn’t in a relationship but just had a three-night stand resulting in three

children over five years. These unlikely stories are revealed as the Government announces a new campaign to target benefit fraudsters encouraging claimants to come clean about any changes to their circumstances and urging the public to report suspicions about possible fraudsters to the National Benefit Fraud Hotline. The campaign, starting this autumn, will remind claimants to report all changes in their circumstances at the time that they happen and before DWP investigators turn their attention to their claim. Examples of changes in circumstances include moving or buying property abroad, moving in with a partner or starting work.

A woman’s work is never done!

I

READ an article this week written by a woman who says she feels guilty about spending her husband’s earnings. The woman described how she has always been a hard worker and enjoyed making purchases for herself and her husband using her salary, but since having a baby she now doesn’t feel as comfortable spending as she describes it - ‘his’ cash. When she was working, she says she wouldn’t have thought twice about buying lunch out or a new top, but since giving birth to a little girl and stepping back from her desk job the writer is hesitant to spend, as she doesn’t see the income coming into the house as her money! I imagine this attitude

IT’S YOURS: His money is your money too. stay at home and look after a newborn, but it’s an attitude that makes the 1950’s look progressive and a stop needs to be put to such negative thinking immediately.

A woman looking after a newborn baby is working, and often working long, hard, tiresome days at that. It’s an important job bringing up a child and it deserves to be valued

in the same way that professions outside the home are valued. The decision to have a baby is a joint effort, so there is no need for any stay-at-home mum, or dad for that matter, to feel uncomfortable about spending what should be considered as being the family’s money. Obviously, if one income is lost after having a baby, it’s wise not to be wheeling the new pram around town spending carelessly. It’s important to be organised and stick to a budget, but a stay-athome mum or dad should never feel as if the worker has the only claim to an income. In an ideal world it should be shared and spent fairly between the worker outside the house and the worker inside the home.

Telefonica plotting a comeback… TELEFONICA, which has been suffering in the domestic market, has predicted better times ahead. The company has been losing customers to cheaper rivals, particularly from its Movistar mobile brand. Luis Miguel Gilperez, CEO of Telefónica España, had pinned his hopes on ‘bundling’ together landline, ADSL and mobile products plus TV into one monthly payment under its Fusion banner. Since its launch the Fusion bundles have signed up 2.8 million customers. But despite its efforts

many cash strapped Spaniards are still moving to budget companies. Many mobile customers do not necessarily want to pay for a landline as well. So it remains cheaper to switch to other providers, many of whom offer free or very cheap data downloads as well as phone calls. Others offer good value ADSL internet deals and landline at very competitive prices. Movistar mobile lost 248,000 customers during March which brought its loss of customers in the first three months of the year to 700,000.

New chairman for Pescanova

IN CHARGE: Luis Miguel Gilperez, CEO of Telefonica España. Spain’s mobile virtual network operators companies that offer a service using bigger providers’ infrastructure gained 210,000 customers in March alone. But Telefonica at a press conference has said that it is confident of an upswing in its fortunes. Gilperez said although not yet back to growth, the company

was close to reversing the trend of losing customers. It is planning to launch some innovative and cost effective products. These include the ability to use data ‘bought’ on a contract to be shared across different devices, negating the need for pricey contracts across all a household’s devices. And it plans to roll out the most modern and

fastest 4G mobile network across Spain at no extra cost to consumers. That is in contrast to other countries where customers who want 4G will have to pay a premium, usually around an extra €5 to €10 a month. It claims that 50 per cent of the country will have access to its 4G coverage by Christmas.

INSOLVENT frozen fish company Pescanova has appointed a new chairman. Shareholders decided to put Juan Manuel Urgoiti into the hot seat to guide the company through what is expected to be a lengthy insolvency process. The previous chairman left amid charges of insider trading and falsifying information. Manuel Fernandez de Sousa who left the post in April denied any wrongdoing. He and nine other executives are under court investigation. Urgoiti is a former chairman of Banco Gallego and sits on the board of directors of retailer Inditex, owner of Zara.

Gibraltar suffered as well! MR GRAHAM (Issue 1471) is quite right in praising Malta’s George Cross, but totally wrong about everything else. No one in Gibraltar has called for it to be granted to Gibraltar. The initiative has come from an English MEP. For the record, Gibraltar was bombed during World War 2 by both the French and Italians. The majority of the population had been removed to French Morocco only to be rounded up at gunpoint when France fell and crammed into ships that were obliged to sail to the nearest friendly port, Gibraltar, as they had no food or water. A second evacuation settled people in Madeira, Jamaica and, the bulk, in Blitz-torn and V-bombed London! Worse than that, our Indian Community was shipped to India, captured by a German raider, shipped to France, their ship torpedoed by a British submarine and the survivors interned in German Concentration Camps. Most of the population suffered five or six years of exile but some lingered in makeshift camps in Ireland away from home and family for 15 years. All able bodied persons helped in the war effort, not forgetting those in essential posts in Gibraltar. Since then, Gibraltar has contributed to the defence of democracy during The Korean War, the ‘withdrawal from Empire,’ the Falklands War and all the recent conflicts in the near and Middle East. Despite all this, no one in Gibraltar has ever asked for the George Cross. Charles Rosado (by email)

Parking blues I AGREE with Allen Everington (Issue 1469) and Mick Scarles (Issue 1470) with regards to people parking in disabled parking bays without a badge. Just as bad are the people who abuse the parking privileges that come with a disabled badge. In the past few weeks I have seen four different cars parked in a disabled bay, display a badge and walk away with no apparent disability and there has not been anyone else in the car. A couple from Holland in Moraira parked in a disabled bay next to an empty normal space, put the badge on the dashboard and were quicker than us into the store. Len Atkinson, Benichembla, (Alicante)

Despite of.... MR ERIC CONWAY (letters, Issue 1470) refers to Oxford and Cambridge as though the Catholic Church set them up in their present form, when this actually came about gradually in spite of religious control, not because of it. The early religious academies functioned more as places of indoctrination according to dogma rather than as centres of inquiry and the search for knowledge and understanding. The non-acceptance by the medieval Church of factual discoveries about the physical world is well known, as is the forced retractions made by men of knowledge under Church duress. The ‘unprecedented human achievement’ of the Renaissance owed more to the discovery of Arab translations of Greek and Roman

texts and to Gutenberg’s invention of printing with re-usable type than to any positive input by the Church. I have no problem with people following their bliss but I think it diminishes their credence when, in their bliss, they either misrepresent historical facts or erase them altogether. Eric Robinson, La Herradura (Granada)

Lanes needed I WAS interested to read the report about how poor Malaga’s cycling lanes are (CDS Issue 1471). The city is not alone. Cyclists in Spain are very badly catered for. I have read motorists complain about cyclists, but really the majority of us would rather not use the roads or pedestrian paths in town. Well designed cycleways are in everyone’s interests, leaving the roads for cars and pathways for pedestrians. Samantha Lacalle, Nerja (Malaga)

So sorry! I WOULD like to say sorry that we had to cancel the paella at the Arts & Crafts Market in Rojales on Saturday evening Sept 7. Many visitors complained about that, but I had to make the decision early on due to rain and the

possibility of cancelling the event. Secondly, sorry I wasn’t able to do demonstrations or portraits due to lack of space. Thirdly, sorry that the event was severely curtailed with only a fraction of the artists expected, but they didn’t want their precious work ruined by rain. One visitor said “Is this all there is?” - but at least it went ahead! But better than turning out to find nothing there, I hope. The event started at 7pm but at 6pm it was still likely to be cancelled and it was only because I knew the gallery cave - Sala Mengolero - was empty and I suggested we used it, that the event happened. Thanks go to Rojales Town Hall for allowing use of Sala Mengolero at the last minute. Also thanks to the artists and artisans and the Funtastic Dixieland band. Martin, Rojales (Alicante)

Another mystery RE the ‘Mystery Statue in Marbella,’ (Costa del Sol, Issue 1470). I always admire this when leaving Venta Los Pacos, but there is more of his work in Marbella in Carib Playa in the beach restaurant Rama. It has to be by the same artist as it is nearly identical, and at Rama the trees are alive! Jamie Stonehewer (By email). Editor’s note: The Euro Weekly News reported on a mystery statue on Marbella’s Golden Mile, the origins of which are lost in the mists of time.

Thank you I AM writing in appreciation of the article on page 2 (Issue 1470, Costa del Sol) regarding the fire and our horses which have found a new home in Barranco Blanco. This is very much appreciated especially the accompanying photo... a very big thank you. Vera Wates (Malaga) Editor’s note: The EWN reported how Equinatural, a charity that looks after abandoned horses, had found a new home after a massive bush fire that swept across parts of Mijas, Coin, Alhaurin el Grande Marbella and Ojen (Malaga) last year.

Mad to even think of voting for Labour after their squandering HOW could anyone in their right mind even consider voting Labour at the next election? Personally the idea of Miliband, Balls and co. actually empowered to introduce just about anything that even vaguely controls the way we exist, fills me with absolute horror. Last week’s conference did precisely nothing to change my views. The only thing I agreed with in the whole sorry, uninspiring shambles, was the pathetic smattering of applause that greeted Miliband’s final summary. As a lifelong Conservative, I am still of the unshakable opinion that the UK is a business and should be run as such. Left wingers, with their ‘everybody out’ and ‘a better deal for the workers’ piffle is just that. Unadulterated hypocritical claptrap. Workers only prosper when the business prospers. Wages only rise when profits become healthier. Keep handing out more than is coming in and there can be only one inevitable result - bankruptcy.

LEAPY LEE SAYS IT NEXT ELECTION: Who to vote for.

OTHERS THINK IT

Which is exactly what happened when the ‘New’ Labour brigade took over. Conned by self-ambitious Tony Blair, they inherited a business that, under the Conservatives, was thriving (with a basically happy and suitably rewarded work force) and proceeded to run it into the ground. In the end they even sold off our gold reserves - at an absolute pittance I may add. Labour and its

leftwing incompetence, couldn’t run a tombola at a church hall - let alone a UK INC. In an effort to replace millions of disgruntled voters they then opened the immigrant flood gates. Without a single thought for the decent British hard working men and women, who had sacrificed their time and energy to help put the

country firmly on its feet, they subsequently allowed in a positive deluge of often spongers and grabbers, without a patriotic bone in their bodies, who then proceeded to bleed the country dry. Our National Health Service, schools and public services, which should have been part of the British people’s reward for their hard work, are now strained to breaking point and will take years to recover - if ever. They squandered even more money by attempting to bribe the masses with handouts and subsequently created a vast army of spongers who consider working for a living a mugs’ game. They embroiled us in a war which cost billions and brought the misery of death and maiming into thousands of British homes. And some of you want to vote them back in. Keep the faith. Love Leapy.

S more and more children are being given phones we asked readers how young was too young to have a phone. At what age should children own a mobile phone? Do you see any danger in younger children using mobile phones? Five years is too young for children to have a mobile phone, said Mick and Janet O’Hanrahan, 68, both retired and now living in Arboleas. “Around the age of 12 is when they start to get independent and is a good age to start. We can’t see any real danger if they use a locked mobile phone.” Tania Hanks, 42, a part time supermarket worker on holiday in Almeria, lives in Norfolk, England. She said: “My eldest daughter had a mobile phone at 10 years old. We live in a small village and

My grandson has one, he is seven, and he uses it to play games, listen to music, take photos and even read books. He has the internet turned off on it though.” Mothers we spoke to on the Costa Blanca thought a child

having a phone by the age of five was ridiculous. Children under 10 were too young to have a phone, said mother of three Victoria Vasey, aged 31 from La Marina. “They should not have one, absolutely not. My eldest was 13 when she got one. It is OK from when they are a teenager at high school and they start going out by themselves a bit. I do know someone who just bought her six-year-old an iPhone.” Sheena Parkington, 34, a mother of one, agrees it is not necessary for a young child to have a phone but believes it is more a British thing she said: “I think in the UK it is more about peer pressure. Spain isn’t so gadget orientated or into having the latest items or designer clothes, so I don’t think Spanish children would have a phone so young.”

A mix of drinks may be harmful MIXING alcohol with energy drinks could be more harmful than research currently suggests, claims a leading psychologist. Professor Peter Miller, Associate Professor of Psychology at Deakin University in Australia, warns that mixing spirits such as vodka with energy drinks can lead to higher levels of intoxication. He says that previous studies falsely reassure drinkers and don’t reflect the real world, apart from the fact that many of them are financed by energy drink manufacturers. Surveys show around three out of four college students in Europe and the US regularly indulge in such combinations, and studies looking at statistical links between certain forms of behaviour and drinkers mixing energy drinks and alcohol show they are likely to consume more alcohol, engage in aggressive acts, get injured and drinkdrive.

Keeping fit to fight cancer KEEPING active for just under 40 minutes a day could reduce the risk of cancer of the womb by nearly half. The World Cancer Research Fund’s (WCRF) Continuous Update Project found evidence that about 3,700 cases could be prevented every year with just 38 minutes of daily physical activity, combined with maintaining a healthy weight. Womb cancer mostly affects women aged over 60. The most common is endometrial, affecting the womb lining. Researchers at Imperial College, London, collated and reviewed all the scientific research available on womb cancer, diet, physical activity and body weight. Then an international panel of experts judged the evidence with

scientists at WCRF estimating that there is a link between body fat and cancer. It is thought fat cells could release hormones that can increase the risk of some cancers. Regular physical activity can help to keep these hormone levels healthy as well as strengthening the immune system and maintaining a healthy digestive system. The study also revealed evidence that drinking coffee can cut the risk of womb cancer. KEEPING ACTIVE: Just under 40 minutes a day could reduce the risk of cancer of the womb.

Pedro Almodovar, One of Spainʼs most prolific film directors. He has directed more than 20 films, including Academy Award-winning All About my Mother and Talk to Her. He was a member of parody glam-punk rock duo Almodovar & McNamara in the 1980s.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) A juicy bit of gossip comes your way this week and it is hard to keep it quiet. You must do so, however, because there is a lot riding on it. When people trust you, they are saying much about the relationship.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Letting life get too tame will eventually irritate you no end. Your social life needs a boost which, in turn, helps romance blossom. We all need constant stretching.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Someone will most certainly come to the rescue when your situation changes. Well, they will, won'ʼt they? Have Plan B ready just in case. In continuing to think in the short term you do yourself no favours.

Which 1961 American musical romantic comedy film starred Elvis Presley as Chad (Chadwick) Gates? 4. Which 1971 British film written, produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, was adapted from a 1962 novella by Anthony Burgess and starred Malcolm McDowell as Alex? 5. Which 1982 award-winning novel by American author Alice Walker was adapted into a film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Whoopi Goldberg as Celie Harris Johnson?

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) During your social encounters this week you meet someone who offers to help. That is great, but do ask yourself if you would be prepared to give anything in return.

TODAY:

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Some exciting suggestions make you think twice about a current business matter. However, it may not be necessary to change anything but to consider the new suggestion as a sort of ʻadd onʼ to a current project.

Chocolate digestives come top

World’s biggest black pudding BURGOS is a city known for its Gothic cathedral and its main square, but this may soon change as the city is getting ready to make the world’s biggest black pudding. The council has decided to reach for this unusual record on September 29 as part of the city being the 2013 Spanish gastronomic capital. The 178-metre-long black pudding will be cooked over a low heat in a 250-kilogram pan placed on a sand structure. The Black Pudding Producers Association (AFAMOR) will be in charge of keeping the quality and flavour of the giant ‘morcilla’ up to standard. Citizen involvement will be crucial to make the event a success. Four hundred volunteers are needed to complete a process expected to start at 9am and to finish five hours later. A Guinness World Record representative will certify the achievement while numerous and hungry people enjoy one of the 4,000 portions that will come out of the record-breaking black pudding.

GROWING IN POPULARITY: Online grocery shopping.

Shoppers desert aisles for online ONLINE grocery shopping in the UK is expected to increase by 126 per cent in the next five years.

A new industry study predicts the shift towards shopping for food and groceries online and says that takings at the tills of these outlets will almost double over the next five years to £18.6 billion (€20 billion).

The figures come from the Institute for Grocery Distribution (IGD). Chief Executive, Joanne DenneyFinch, said: “Both online and convenience retailing are reaping the rewards of our changing lifestyles. With more of us owning

THE chocolate digestive has come out as Britain’s favourite biscuit. Nearly a quarter of Britons questioned in the survey said they would opt for the chocolatey treat ahead of any other variety. Plain digestives came second with chocolate chip cookies, bourbons and custard creams making up the rest of the top five.

TREAT: Cookies.

Elevate your salad

SALADS are a versatile dish. Served warm or cold, as a side or as the

main meal, they fit in every occasion. Almost any ingredient is suitable for a salad, and they can elevate them into a fine cuisine dish when the produce is good and seasonable. Equally varied are salad dressings, although people usually stick to the classic French, Caesar or ranch dressings. In Spain olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper make up the traditional

dressing, but there are a whole lot of possibilities to make salads stand out. A good variation of the traditional dressing is the lime honey mustard dressing. Honey softens the lime’s sour acidic flavour, while a sprinkle of coriander gives an earthy fresh touch. Unusual in savoury dishes, cinnamon can be used in dressings to bring new flavours to salads.

The many challenges of a Spanish Mediterranean garden SPANISH gardens in all areas with Mediterranean climates present challenges compared to gardening in the UK. That is something purchasers of properties on the coast, in the sandy desert areas and, particularly in winter, in cold inland hills will have discovered. Firstly, like most of Spain much of the soil is not very fertile unless enriched before planting and many of the plants are very different to those that one planted and cared for previously. Secondly, the real climatic conditions are not the average temperatures and rainfalls described in publicity material issued by tourist boards and international estate agents. Certainly these average temperatures are amongst

Dick Handscombe

Gardening Corner By Spain’s best known expatriate gardening author living in Spain for 25 years.

FUTURE MAINTENANCE: Make sure you take this into account when designing your garden. the best worldwide for the healthy living of people, plants and pets. But as many have realised in recent years some summer days can be very hot with temperatures approaching 50 degrees C while, although the coast remains mild during the winter, inland it can be like the arctic with snow falls and temperatures well

below freezing, especially when northerly gales occur. Thirdly, most of us came to Spain for a more outdoor lifestyle throughout the year, so you need a garden that is pleasant to wander around, sunbathe and siesta in, cook, eat and drink in rather than a garden that looks good through the window on a damp dreary day or

another weekend when it’s impossible to cut the lawn. Fourthly, you may be short of water during the hottest summer months, so the number of plants you can support may be limited. Fifthly, many people purchasing properties are coming to Spain for their retirement and not to work and therefore may not initially be fully fit to take on

the challenge of a Spanish garden. Against this background we suggest the following: Build up fitness and strength before tackling the heavy jobs. Get used to wearing a sunhat on the hottest days. Design the garden to match the type of lifestyle you envisage in Spain. Recognise that you may live in the chosen property for the rest of your lives, so take account of the future maintenance required when you start to design, construct and plant up the garden. Yes you can employ a gardener, but the more maintenance required, the higher the cost and some garden landscaping companies are in reality more interested in the annual maintenance contract rather than the one-off design contract. Whatever you do, improve the soil before you plant anything, whether these be perennial or shrub beds, areas of flowering and fruiting trees and space for a vegetable plot etc,. Start a compost heap for kitchen and garden rubbish as soon as you move in so that within six months you will have compost to mix into the soil. Search out local sheep or goat herds and stables as sources of inexpensive manures. Also agricultural cooperatives often sell bags of manure based composts and inland living also enables the keeping of poultry and rabbits that yield good manures as well as eggs and meats. Unless you plan to keep

wide open views and a minimalist garden, plant up boundary hedges and internal windbreaks to achieve a more benign microclimate before you plant up anything but the hardiest plants. Select plants that are reasonably drought resistant and frost resistant if inland - we indicate these in Part Four of our book ‘Your garden in Spain.’ Ensure you can irrigate the plants during the summer months until they have established deep roots. Plan to grow your own fruit and vegetables. Tropical fruits are possible on the coast and the winter cold inland locations can be good for temperate fruits. In mild winter areas it is possible to harvest a good selection of vegetables 365 days a year. Our vegetable and fruit growing books were written to help you in getting going and avoiding the problems that we had in our early days. If you plan a pool for the hot summer months consider covering it with a sliding roof and installing solar water heating. With these you will not only be able to make better use of the pool, but the cover can also be used as a greenhouse for early and late vegetable crops. ‘Growing healthy vegetables in Spain’ has a special section on growing vegetables in containers. © Dick Handscombe www.gardenspain.com gardenspain2@yahoo. com September 2013.

UNVEILING: There are more than 1,000 stand s.

Spotlight turns on Frankfurt THE 65th Frankfurt Motor Show is being held until September 22. The international exhibition could not come at a better moment for the Spanish industry, which recently ousted Russia from 11th place in the International Organisation of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers ranking. The Spanish car industry registered a profit of €6.3 billion during the first half of the year, according to the Spanish Car and Lorry Manufacturers Association (Anfac).

In Spain 210,581 cars were manufactured in July, an increase of 15.36 per cent in relation to 2012. Many of these cars, including the Ford S-Max soon to be produced in Valencia, are being presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The show gathers all the segments of the car industry together on a 230,000 m2 site and more than 1,000 stands. Two themes are being highlighted at the show; electric cars and so-called car connectivity, that is

technology that aims at connecting the driver with the car and the environment. German manufacturers will unveil 16 electric cars, with many more produced

by Chinese, French, British, Japanese and American manufacturers. This is proof that this technology has ceased to be just a concept but has become a reality, according

to the organising German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). Car connectivity is being planned to change the driving and safety of cars, with technology capable of

assisting the driver in the most dangerous situations. Experts claim 210 million of these ‘connected cars’ will be on the roads in 2016, four times more than today.

All-new Mazda 3 to hit the stores in October MAZDA’S new generation Mazda 3 is to go on sale in Spain in October following its European premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The all-new car features Mazda’s SKYACTIV powertrain, with a standard power of 100ps at 6,000rpm and 150Nm at 4,000rpm for the 1.5litre version. Multi-hole injectors for enhanced fuel spray, special piston cavities and dual sequential valve timing make up a fuelsaving 4-2-1 exhaust

system. Every Mazda 3 will come with Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) which helps to reduce or prevent low-speed collisions by automatically applying the brakes if the driver fails to act. With a starting price of €17,750, the new Mazda 3 features MZD Connect, the company’s brand new in-vehicle connectivity concept. Designed for straightforward and safe

operation, users can access Facebook and Twitter or reap the benefits of personalised location-based services. The cabin is split into separate driver and passenger zones designed for fun, non-stressful driving and a secure, relaxing passenger atmosphere. Complementing this layout is a humanmachine interface (HMI) which enables the driver to control the car’s infotainment features without taking their eyes off the road. On the outside, the Mazda 3

inherits the lines of the larger Mazda 6. The extended wheelbase and shorter front and rear overhangs suggest performance, enhancing safety and stability while at the same time offering more room in the cabin, and boot. The signature front grille flows into the lines, while minimal gaps between the body panels provide exceptional build quality with doors that open with ease. Headlamps feature a cleanly-structured lighting signature with LEDs and a light-guiding ring. The new Mazda 3 will be available in a range of nine exterior colours, including the ‘Soul Red’ metallic first seen on the new-generation Mazda 6.

First win of the season for Malaga MALAGA head into Saturday’s game at Real Sociedad (kick-off 4pm) having secured their first three points of the season with a 5-0 thrashing of Rayo Vallecano at La Rosaleda. Moroccan striker Mounir El Hamdaoui enjoyed a dream debut by scoring a hat-trick with Francisco Portillo and Eliseu also on target. The hosts had Rayo on the back foot immediately with Pedro Morales going close after just three minutes and centre-back Marcos Angeleri heading just wide from a corner, whilst at the other end Joaquin Larrivey was unable to hit the target from close range. Rayo’ keeper Ruben then had to be on his toes to deny Morales on 15 minutes and was again on hand to save from El Hamdaoui three minutes later. However, Malaga finally made the breakthrough on the half-hour mark, El Hamdaoui leaping to volley the ball into the net from Vitorino Antunes’ superb leftwing cross. Los Blanquiazules then doubled their advantage five minutes before halftime when Portillo passed into an empty net after El Hamdaoui had sprung the offside trap and squared the ball to him. Nonetheless, the visitors almost got themselves back into the game in first-half

injury time through midfielder Saul, but Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero proved alert with his first real save of the game. Bernd Schuster’s men extended the lead four minutes after the break, Eliseu picking up Sergi Darder’s through ball and curling a sublime shot wide of former Malaga stopper Ruben, before El Hamdaoui got his second on 62 minutes when he slotted home a cross from Morales. The 29-year-old completed his treble five minutes later, this time beating three Rayo defenders with a deft turn inside the box and firing past former Malaga stopper Ruben at his near post. With the result beyond doubt, Schuster introduced Ignacio Camacho, Fabrice and Samuel into the action late on, the latter coming on eight minutes from time for El Hamdaoui, who went off to a standing ovation. The result means Malaga move out of the bottom three after a tough start to the 201314 campaign and into a more respectable midtable position.
