Robot could help stroke patients RESEARCHERS at the University Miguel Hernandez (UMH) in Elche have designed a robot controlled by the brain. They have spent more than a year working on the robot with the aim of helping improve the quality of life for people with limited mobility in their hands due to stroke or severe disabilities. The system uses surface electrodes placed on the head of the person and its sensors are able to detect the

activity of neurons. The collected information is encoded through algorithms that translate the commands to the robot which allow daily activities to be carried out like picking up a glass of water and drinking it. The robot, despite being some way off being available to patients, has been presented at the International Neural Rehabilitation conference held in Elche which was attended by experts in this field.

Warning over lack of airport rail link

RAIL LINK: Expert warns it is necessary for future prosperity of Alicante-Elche airport. A TRANSPORT expert has warned that Alicante-Elche airport needs a railway link. The comments of Armando Ortuùo Padilla, professor of Transport Planning and Management at the University of Alicante, come as the authorities announce that rail plans have been deferred. The professor is the author of a comprehensive study on the lack of access at the airport, which is the gateway to the Costa Blanca for millions of tourists each year. He said the airport is the worst, along with Morocco’s Marrakesh airport out of 20 airports he studied in the Mediterranean for

connections, and he believes rail is essential. He said: “The only way to be able to respond efficiently to passengers is through massive modes, ie. rail. The benefits of linking the airport to Alicante and Torrellano would quickly be extended to the whole province given the existing and planned rail network.â€? He added: “The most recent data we have indicates that the cost of that stretch Torrellano-Airport-Alicante is estimated at around â‚Ź300 million. The Consell and the municipalities of Alicante and Elche have chosen to wait until the economy improves to make the rail connection.â€?

Brace for drunken antics BRITONS in Spain, and Mallorca in particular, are bracing themselves for another hit to their image with the return of ITV 2’s Magaluf Weekender. Last year, series one gave an insight into what young Britons get up to whilst on holiday abroad, and attracted one million viewers aged between 16 and 24-years-old. And much of it was not a pretty sight. The series unashamedly played up to the image of drunken Brits abroad.

Drunken party antics seemed to be the main ingredients of the ‘reality show’ and more of the same is planned. But perhaps even more shocking than the bad behaviour on show are Facebook comments about the first series. In them many young adults, who profess ‘to know Magaluf well’ say the series is ‘tame.’ Real life in the so-called ‘party capital’ they claim, is much more ‘exciting.’

Economy set for expansion SPAIN’S economy is set to advance this quarter. This is what the government, particularly Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, has promised all along and analysts are cautiously agreeing. But the improvement will be minimal

according to statistics prepared for the Savings Banks Foundation (Funcas). A third-quarter GDP increase of 0.1 per cent on second-quarter figures is now predicted instead of the zero growth that Funcas forecast in July. The increase will reduce the GDP’s anticipated fall by two decimal points to 1.3 per cent instead of the 1.5 per cent expected this year. Predicted growth of 0.7 per cent for 2014 will owe less to domestic demand and report continued, to the consumption than the extent that the capacity for export sector, the one dealing with them is area that remains ‘seriously compromised’ in buoyant. ‘more than a few’ The improvement prosecution departments. will fail to provide No kind of filter exists in employment and the the judicial machinery for crisis is set to channelling these claims. continue next year, As a result, an Funcas said. ‘overwhelming’ number of Although the petitions have to be unemployment rate is rejected, the report said. expected to shrink Most alleged fundafrom this year’s 26.5 mental rights violations are per cent to 25.9 per related to breached cent in 2014, this will indemnity guarantees and be the result of a the employee’s right to reduction in the judicial protection against working population reprisals for claiming and not the number rights. of jobless.

Madrid falls from tourist favour THE 34 million foreign tourists visiting Spain between January and July broke all records. But while this was 3.9 per cent more than in 2012, the 2.4 million foreign tourists who visited Madrid during the same period fell by 5.7 per cent. The Madrid region has now experienced three consecutive months of dwindling foreign tourism, a Ministry of Industry survey revealed. Although there were more US

tourists, there was a noticeable fall in Italian, French and Latin American visitors to Madrid. Nationally, the Valencian Community experienced the steepest rise in foreign tourism during the first six months of the year, with a 12.2 per cent increase. Cataluña continued to receive more foreign tourists than any other region, followed by Baleares, the Canary Islands and Andalucia.

Cookie monster’s money tips! IF a child is confronted with a tasty marshmallow, what do they do? Eat it or save it for later? This simple scenario is the basis of a very famous psychological experiment to test a child’s self-control. The results point to how a child may fair financially in the future. In 1972, 1,000 children were studied - each child was sat in a chair and one delicious marshmallow was placed in front of them. The children were told: “You can have one marshmallow now, or two in 10 minutes, if you wait.” Most of the children tested wolfed down the little pillow of sweetness within moments. Only one third of the children waited the 10 minutes to receive two marshmallows. The experiment proved just how hard it is for children to have self-control and be able to see benefits in the future. But teaching children selfcontrol is vital according to the

financial trouble by their early 30s. The high self-control children, however, are apparently doing very well. They are entrepreneurs, own their own homes and have retirement plans.

Self-control and learning to save at a young age is extremely important and, luckily for parents, Sesame Street is here to help. Over its four decades, the children’s programme has taught tiny tots a lot of valuable lessons. Now Sesame Street friends Elmo, Grover and Cookie Monster are teaching children self-control in order to save money too. In one episode the furry puppet Elmo explains to kids the importance of savings. Elmo explains that when we want something, we can’t have it immediately - that we have to build towards getting it. He uses the example of a ‘stupendous ball’ he wants that costs $5. Throughout the episode Elmo has to do small jobs to earn $5 over some time. If the self-control of our threeyear-old selves really does predict financial prosperity in the future, then I suggest all parents ensure that their children listen carefully to what the Cookie Monster has to say!

Inditex still growing despite narrowing profit margins INDITEX, the world’s biggest clothing retailer, has seen sales grow, even though profit growth has slowed. The owner of the Zara chain signalled it was not immune to the depressed European markets, where cut price competition combined with a cold spring and foreign currency fluctuations combined to drive down profit margins after a particularly strong 2012. But analysts said the Spanish group’s model of rapidly-changing fashion ranges remained among the best in the industry, and noted fast-growing Asian markets had overtaken Spain as its biggest source of sales for the first time. “We continue to believe Inditex will deliver double

to 58.6 per cent of sales versus 59.6 per cent the year before. However, Inditex said it expected gross margins to end the year broadly stable - 50 basis points higher or lower than what it considered to be an exceptional margin in 2012. It also reported a pick-up in sales growth following a weak spring season. Retail sales fell in Spain for the 37th straight month in July and the country still accounts for 19.3 per cent of Inditex’s sales, albeit down from 21.5 per cent a year ago. However, the group said sales in Asia, Australia and Africa had overtaken Spain to account for 21.7 per cent of the total, up from 20.2 per cent a year earlier. Inditex’s shares have tripled in value in the last five years.

OLIVE OIL: Prices have risen.

HIGH olive oil prices after last year’s droughtstricken crop could leave a smile on farmers’ faces. Prices for premium oils are up a third from last year. With this year’s Spanish crop expected to yield about 1.4m tonnes it could mean a financial fillip for growers.

Spain’s debt continues to grow despite cutbacks WHILE a return to economic growth is on the cards, Spain’s national debt continued to rise in June. The country owes an eye-watering €942.8 billion according to the Spanish Central Bank. That is the equivalent of 92.2 per cent of the country’s economic output for a year. The bank forecasts, if trends continue, that it could reach 100 per cent within three years. Despite austerity measures that have seen cuts in public services across the board, debt has grown 15 per cent in a year. The figure broke the target of 91.4 per cent set by the Spanish government. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s aim to reduce public spending by €150 billion between 2012 and 2014, is proving a tough target with unemployment of 26 per cent reducing the tax take and pushing up spending on benefits.

Banks face ‘haircut’ BANKS owed billions by insolvent frozen fish company Pescanova are being asked to take a 70 to 75 per cent ‘haircut.’ A KPMG audit showed the company had a debt of €3.6 billion, making it one of the country’s biggest bankruptcies. Most of that is believed to be owed to the Sabadell, Popular, Caixabank and NovaGalicia banks. New chairman Juan Manuel Urgoiti was due to meet bank representatives. It is thought he wants them to accept losses as part of a plan to relaunch the firm. But he might have his work cut out as, in an independent action, accounting firm

PwC is drawing up a viability plan to save the company. Measures could include a fire sale of assets and an exchange of debt for shares. That would give the banks control of the company. Whether the banks want to get into the frozen fish industry is another question. Urgoiti is a former chairman of Banco Gallego and sits on the board of directors at success story Inditex, owners of Zara clothing retailers. Former chairman Manuel Fernandez de Sousa and nine former executives face a string of charges in the criminal courts. Several are alleged to have made millions of euros fraudulently.

Just who do you think you are kidding ? INTERESTING to read in the finance pages (Issue 1472) that Telefonica (or Movistar) bosses think they can stop losing customers. They must be kidding! They had better think again unless they change their customer service. Telefonica rebranded as Movistar largely because it had such a dire reputation for service. If my experience is anything to go by nothing has changed. I have now moved to a smaller provider after a long list of delays and problems with Movistar and am very happy to have done so. My new phone company actually seems to want my custom. It is cheaper and offers far better service. So if Movistar, which lost 248,000 customers in March, really wants to turn things around they should sack their head of customer services and employ someone who actually cares for their clients. Jonathan McNamara, Elche (Alicante).

Justice questions TWO stories attracted my attention (Costa del Sol Issue 1472). Firstly, Assault revenge. “A man, 26, was arrested in Malaga for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman, 29. Her partner, 35, was arrested for beating the attacker unconscious.” Should the partner of the sexually assaulted lady just have stood by and done nothing to protect/defend his lady companion? Secondly, Bazaar attack. “Four people were arrested in Malaga for allegedly attacking the owner of a Chinese bazaar. The victim’s husband was also arrested for hitting them with a stick.” Should he have just stood by and done nothing to protect/defend his wife? Two defenders of innocents protecting their loved ones and arrested? Is this sensible, true justice? Jack Nusbaum, Torremolinos (Malaga).

Big picture…

SO! Mary Hopkins (Letters, Issue 1471) is perfectly happy to buy from the looky looky men without looking at the bigger picture. She asks can someone “explain”

Money monsters I AGREE with CG that the ruination of Africa is charity (Letters Issue 1470). Some of these charities seem to be money-making ‘monsters.’ A few months ago I managed to get in touch with two of these so called charities, I complained about their use of young children on the TV adverts. The answer I got was that they were ‘paid actors,’ this referred to a little lad standing in a cot with tears in his eyes. Can you believe it? Then a few weeks later they began showing an advert with a baby a few months old, could that be another actor? They are sick making money the way they are doing. I think they should be educating the populations about birth control! NW Comares (Malaga).

Some exile! I took this picture of housemartins, at the bottom of our garden, being fed by mum and dad. It was extraordinary watching them as neither parent alighted but fed them on the wing.

WHEN YOU WRITE All letters, whether by email or post, should carry the writer’s postal address, NIE and contact number though only the name and town will be published. Letters may also be edited. Readers who have missed earlier correspondence can see all letters posted on:

why the police are set on stopping them. I will try! They most probably do not pay their dues, social or taxes. Many of the goods are counterfeit and some are most probably dangerous (small loose bits dangerous to children, lead paint etc) and are often shoddy and sub-standard. The source of the goods comes from cheap (sweat shop) labour, and most probably from black (drugs/ arms/laundered) money. They are also taking money away from legitimate traders and shops. When the police arrive they pack up and run away because they know they are breaking the law and selling fake goods. If you cannot afford designer goods why buy sub-standard ones that fall to bits? Go to the normal shops and buy something really comparable. I know

these people need to make a living but there are other jobs like cleaning, gardening, window cleaning. Mick Scarles, Javea (Alicante)

Looky out! AFTER visiting Torrox Costa market we took some friends visiting from the UK to a favourite Chinese restaurant on the front for a menu del dia. For the next couple of hours we were pestered every 10 to 15 minutes by hawkers with no respect for our privacy. They were not deterred with a wave of no thanks or even a ‘no gracias’ so our conversations or meal had to be interrupted to, as politely as possible, tell them to go away. As the restaurant owners, who I believe have the right to stop them entering their premises and can be fined if they are caught selling there, seem to turn a blind eye, maybe they are on a percentage. We felt like sitting targets. We would like to be able to have an internationally recognised sign on the table that says no hawkers and be left to enjoy the meal and company. We now seriously think twice about returning to any restaurant where we have been pestered. Diane Clark (By email)

IN response to the letter from Charles Roasad (Gibraltar suffered as well, Issue 1472) on the subject of the award for gallantry for Gibraltar. l find his comparison between the way the citizens of Gibraltar and Malta were managed in some cases amusing. I’m sure the citizens of Malta would have been delighted to have been sent to Jamaica or Madeira. Unfortunately nobody asked them. As for being bombed by the Italians that’s a joke - they used to drop their load in the sea and be home before tea. Ask any Maltese, they loved being bombed by the Italians. As for not asking for the award, see page 73 in the same paper reference Felix Alvares’s comment. (The chairman of the Equality Right Group welcomed a UK Parliamentary question about the George Cross). Clive Graham (By email) Editor’s note; the letters referred to are about a call for Gibraltar to be awarded the George Cross, as happened to Malta in World War 2.

Well done! GREAT news about Keira having her therapy paid for (Issue 1472). Well done to all at Moraira charity shop, you are the sort of people that make life worthwhile! Diana Evans, Javea (Alicante)

Burka controversies are a ploy to bring in Islamic message

W

HAT no one seems to realise is that all this burka business is simply yet another ploy to bring the Islamic ‘message’ into the front rooms of the ‘infidels.’ Another weapon in the hands of those who would take over our culture and ultimately our democratic freedom. A dozen or so years back no one had even heard of Islam, let alone be interested enough to discuss its pros and cons. Now it’s everywhere. You can’t pick up a newspaper without some Islamic follower spouting off about being ‘offended’ by some action taken by the follower of a different faith, generally Christian. As a Christian country, the UK populace has to be made completely aware that our culture is totally unacceptable to these people, irrespective of how many ‘moderates’ declare otherwise. To these extremists we are the evil face of the non-believer and the ultimate goal of their branch of

CHOICE: Democratic right.

LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT Islam is to rid the world of all who don’t totally encompass the teachings of the prophet Mohamed. We have to make some kind of stand against those who would take away our freedom and plunge our free thinking, often tragically naive populace back into the dark ages. The lessons are there for the taking. All we have to do is take a leaf out

of many Islamic countries’ book. Some don’t allow Christian churches to be erected. Therefore we curb the building of mosques, before there’s one on every street. They don’t allow anyone, even in private, to worship anything other than Islam. We therefore have to firmly discourage the taking over of whole streets by praying congregations. We have to let these people know that halal meat can never be obligatory and pork will always be on the school menu. We must bring home loud and clear that the Union Jack is the flag of our country and it will be flown

over every school in the land if so desired. We must endeavour to prevent ‘no go’ areas and make it absolutely clear that Sharia law is not the law of our land and never will be. Most of all we must stop being petrified to cause offence to these people. So they’re easily ‘offended.’ So what? What are they going to do if we ban the burka in all public institutions (which we should). Declare war? In Islamic countries I’ve seen Western women smacked on their bare arms and calves with pretty hefty sticks wielded by ‘religious police.’ I’m not condoning the physical removal of women’s face masks, but if something isn’t done, I can see the only course of action being one of violence. Do you really want to see our suburbs resembling those of the Syrians? For all our sakes, and especially our children, please God let it never come to that. Keep the faith. Love Leapy. leapylee2002@gmail.com.

OPINION & COMMENT

The land of my fathers Male voice choirs and the Welsh flag are two things I love

I

HAVE nothing against the Welsh. After all, as man and boy, I was blissfully happy in the land of someone else’s father. However, not everyone agrees. Their most famous lyricist, Dylan Thomas once said, “Land of my fathers? They are welcome to it.” The Welsh comedian, Max Boyce, did not share his sentiments. Tongue in cheek he reminded the English that if an iron was run over Wales then his land would be bigger than England once the wrinkles (mountains) were ironed flat. The Welsh sense of humour tends to be sardonic. What do you call an Englishman in the knockout stages of the World Cup? The referee. There is delicious rivalry. What do you call a Welshman with several sheep? A pimp. Their brand of humour can be enlightening. I recall using a lane approaching a Welsh farm. The notice said, ‘Slow! Free Range Children.’ Noted for their sullen insularity the Welsh are notoriously anti-stranger. I thought it was because they thought me English. No, my son, who hails from Wrexham, said:

Mike Walsh

Mike Walsh. Based in Mediterranean Spain, is an international journalist, author and professional writer.

“They show dislike for me too.” Whoever penned the lines ‘There‘ll be a Welcome in the Hillside / There‘ll be a Welcome in the Vale,’ should be dragged before the courts for misrepresentation.

WALES: A land I was happy in. I have asked locals in real Welshspeaking Wales, the Lleyn Peninsular, Anglesey and Snowdonia if it is true that they do not welcome visitors. Agreeably they agree. Venting my frustration with a friend who lives in Llangollen. “Everywhere else changes,” I said, “but not Llangollen, Corwen, Bala, and Anglesey. If one of

Owain Glyndwr’s warriors were to revisit he would not see change.” “That is music to my ears,” she told me. A neighbour in our Welsh village hailed from Birmingham. “All I can see is bloody mountains.” “Oh,” my mother sympathised. “Perhaps we should drill holes through them for you.” “And what would you see,” he retorted. “More bloody mountains.” It has been said the Welsh are the Irish who could not swim. At the time of the first millennium, when Saxon immigrants were overrunning Shakespeare’s sceptred isle, the Britons (the Welsh to you and me) retreated towards the West. An early form of ‘white flight’, the then indigenous locals looked upon the new English as smelly heathens. I am not sure if the enmity between the Welsh and the English is genuine or teasing. I think the latter, for in truth I was very happy in Wales. They can be quirky, but who isn’t? One thing I do love of theirs - two actually. Their male voice choirs that bring a lump to my throat. And of course their flag. I could die for their flag. Cymru am byth.

Probiotics can help mental disorders LOWER levels of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract could cause mental health issues such as ‘anxiety, autism and schizophrenia.’ Some scientists are beginning to recognise the power of healthy gut bacteria, especially seeing that the average adult carries up to five pounds of bacteria in their digestive tract. A study published in Nutritional Neuroscience from The Great Plains Laboratory, has shown that HPHPA levels - the chemical byproduct of the clostridia bacteria - are much higher in the urine of autistic children. Probiotics are commonly consumed in fermented foods with specially added active live cultures, such as in yoghurt, and boost good bacteria.

Girls dressing up for girl friends WOMEN spend more time getting ready for a night out with girl-friends than for a date. A new study on 2,000 women conducted by Malibu Rum found that on average, women spend 40 minutes getting ready for a date, but more than an hour getting ready for a night out with friends. Two thirds of the women involved in the study said the reason behind this is they want to ‘wow’ their friends by looking the best they can and also admitted to comparing their appearance to that of their pals. And for this reason spend more time preening than they perhaps normally would. Whereas 50 per cent of women admitted they have to rush to get ready for a date night, because their partners are ready considerably faster and lack patience.

NIGHT OUT: Everyone wants to ‘wow’ their friends. For some, however, it’s about the revelling and enjoying the process with a cocktail or glass of wine, and the music on whilst choosing the best outfit, hair and make-up to complete the look.

That’s why, according to the study a further 44 per cent of the women surveyed also admitted they enjoy the experience of getting ready to go out with friends just as much as the night out itself.

Coffee scent on sale A COFFEE perfume has been created to help funds for a cancer charity. As part of the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning,’ being held tomorrow (Friday) by Macmillan Cancer Support, the three fragrances, based on the scent of coffee beans, will be available to purchase.

Macmillan hopes to raise over £15m (€17m) from the coffee mornings which are taking place across the world, including many parts of Spain. For more information visit www.macmillan.org.uk/ coffee

CHARITY PERFUME: Is based on the scent of coffee beans.

Sea water therapy A GULP of sea water could be good for us. In a trial, scientists asked people to drink deep sea water with the idea it will help kill the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria which is the main cause of stomach ulcers. Around four in 10 people have the bacteria, which usually lives harmlessly, but it can trigger an ulcer in around 15 per cent

of those infected. A team at the Kochi Medical School in Japan gave 23 people who were infected with the bacteria deep-sea water and found it reduced bacteria numbers by 60 per cent, compared with 25 per cent in those consuming conventional water. Trials are still in the early stages and it is unclear if the bacteria returns if the patient stops drinking the sea water.

Food not a comfort MIDDLE-AGED men eating a poor diet are at greater risk from depression. A study by a university in Finland, of more than 2,000 men found that those who ate more junk food, such as processed meat and sugary drinks are more likely to suffer from depression. The study found those who ate most vegetables, fruits, berries, whole grains, poultry, fish and low fat cheese suffered less symptoms.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Concentrating on hearth and home gives you great satisfaction. As a born homemaker, you relish the idea of making something beautiful. This week it may be possible to show more of your skills when someone seeks your advice. This time it is on more of a personal note and you could end up helping with appearances. SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Making a new start is not always the exciting thing that people imagine. When there are still old matters to be resolved, it takes the edge off the pleasure. It may be worth cooling off a new relationship until your social life is more settled. SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Get both business and personal plans sorted out in the coming week. Thereafter, changes to your routine may be necessary, which is disruptive. The best-laid plans can need adjustment, so donʼt beat yourself up over that. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Someone close has ideas about how things should be at home this Christmas. Although you wish to show an interest, and should, they may be more ʻhands onʼ than you. Do whatever your talents allow to help because this will not be forgotten. AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) The pleasure you will get from helping in the home this week should not be underestimated. What you have been thinking of as a chore turns out to be a great ball of fun. PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Your relationships to others linked to the home environment are going well.

Aim to build on that this week because the chance to make a real change to your surroundings opens up. Comfort is top of your agenda and the continuing sales give scope. Restlessness can be channelled into an energetic response when others seek help.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) This week is mainly concerned with financial matters, and it is easy to both save and make extra money. Keep your energy levels high by making the most of chances to exercise and get out in the fresh air.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Your mind is as sharp as a razor this week, so woe betide anyone who tries to trick you. Itʼs a great time to use your talents fully, particularly in regard to a business venture. It is possible that your strengths are a little unrecognised so donʼt be afraid to try something entirely new.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) The repayment of a favour should see you with extra money in your pocket. Holding on to it is your best bet. . CANCER (June 22 - July 23) A social gathering turns up an old friend who makes an offer. Although you may feel unworthy,

please be reminded of the times in the past when you have given them support. It will be through others that real progress will be made. LEO (July 24 - August 23) Keep energy levels high by being at the hub of any social activities. Accept all invitations, however dull you feel they may turn out and allow yourself to be surprised.

You enjoy a challenge so it will not worry you that other people have different ideas.

A very British institution is the Holiday Camp. At the heart of Pontin's Holidays was the Entertainments Team - the Bluecoats. An oft-asked question was, "What do you do in the Winter?" In 1982 two Bluecoats, one from Wales, one from Scotland, found themselves working together, and falling in love. At the end of the season,

separated, their love letters answered this question. In an age before mobile phones, texts, social networking, digital cameras, and the internet, these letters explore the difficulties, frustrations, doubts, and occasional hilarity of loving at a distance, and surviving Thatcher’s Britain.

Some like it hot SCIENTISTS from University College London have found Sichuan peppers, a popular ingredient in China, contain a chemical that activates touch sensors in the mouth. This could be why some people enjoy their food the hotter the better, while for others the sensation caused by eating chillies is painful. Researchers are

unsure exactly how it happens, but when chillies are placed inside the mouth, chemicals called capsaicinoids activate the parts of the tongue that determine if food is hot or cold. The peppers also contain a chemical called sanshool, that activates touch sensors. The findings could be used to discover why taste differs from person to person.

Love’s annoying little traits… W

OMEN on the Costa Blanca, whilst deeply in love with their partners, didn’t have to think too long about what annoyed them most. “My list is far too long,” joked housewife Linda Williams, aged 27, from Dolores. Whilst saying what was most annoying was often his lack of help around the house and with the children, she did get him to change his ways, even if she did have to nag a little. “If he helps me I get it done quicker so we have more time together just the two of us.” Lisa Yates from urbanisation Oasis, who runs a family restaurant, has not been quite so successful in getting her Spanish partner to change his annoying characteristics. One of her biggest gripes is his getting a clean glass for every drink he has, even if it is the same drink and leaving the old cup lying around. She has been a little more devious to make her point

Larry said: “My wife talks too much, sometimes I just switch off.” Tina said: “My husband is a perfectionist, everything he does has to be 100 per cent perfect. Sometimes it drives me mad, he won’t leave a job until it is done.

The first few years I honestly thought she was right and I either missed things or forgot them. It only slowly dawned on me that it was because she never told me in the first place that I could not remember things. “She still does it after 25 years, so I don’t suppose there is anything I can do about it now.”

How to work out the real age of your cat David THE Dogman

HOW old is your cat? We all know of elderly felines, and may know their real age. But here you can find out your cat’s human age in the chart below. You might be surprised! While past charts may have shown that one cat year is equivalent to seven human years, a new scale has been drawn up of late. It’s now believed that after the first two years of a cat’s life each feline year is approximately four years.That should give a more realistic ‘human equivalent’ age.The longest-living cat ever was reputedly 34-years-old according to some sources. The Siamese and the Manx breeds are generally held to be the longest-living cats. Keeping your cat indoors can double its lifespan, claim some sources. The Guiness Book of Records lists 23-year-old Pinky who lives in Hoyt, Kansas, USA as the oldest cat in the world. But now a feline called Cola

Making the most of your garden to suit your evolving Spanish lifestyle S

EVERAL times during the past year we highlighted the fundamental need to design or redesign your garden to match your intended or evolving lifestyle here in Spain. People really need to plan if they are to make the best of their location, the climate and the investment they have made in buying and improving a house. Naturally what people plan for will depend on their circumstances. For instance if they are an enthusiastic and still fit gardener it could be the design and development of the

the most sensible solution. Most will aim for somewhere between. However, whatever people aim for they should focus on

creating an oasis from the increasingly stressful world of what is becoming in many areas an overbuilt and

ugly coastline of Spain. Start by planting high hedges for privacy, security and noise reduction. Then aim to satisfy the following generic needs: • The creation of summer shade and sheltered winter sun by the maximum use of the natural shade provided by the shadows of the house and by planting flowering or evergreen trees, palms and

We manage to harvest fresh vegetables daily throughout the year. Reduce the size of your water bill in achieving the above by being creative in collecting and distributing rainwater.

To these could be added geraniums if you are prepared to spray twice weekly from March to November against the dreaded geranium moth.

Mortgage clause can be removed THE Supreme Court has reaffirmed an earlier ruling saying that if transparency rules were not followed, minimum interest rate clauses on mortgages would be null and void. The transparency rules include banks failing to inform customers fully of the clause and burying the information amidst paperwork, failing to offer comparison products and not informing clients that if the interest rate fell to a certain level the mortgage would become a fixed rate mortgage. Such clauses mean currently, as interest rates fall to an all time low, customers are not benefiting and continue to pay higher interest rates on their mortgages as the clauses prevent the rates charged from dropping to the actual market level. The ruling was issued after a number of banks asked for clarification on the original Supreme Court ruling. As a result the BBVA has removed the clause from customers’ contracts and other customers who felt they were missold their mortgage can now ask for its removal.

INTEREST RATES: Are at an all time low. The Supreme Court did say the minimum interest rate clause was legal as long as customers were fully aware of it and realised the risks arising from variable interest rates.

Make Gold Rush your first choice when buying or selling jewellery

G

OLD RUSH at the Zenia Boulevard shopping mall is celebrating their first anniversary and what a year it has been, having already served close to 1,000 happy clients wanting to buy and sell jewellery and gold pieces. Run and owned by businessman Cesar Ripanu and expert jeweller Paul Mentessi, the pair also have Gold Rush in the centre of Torrevieja and Quesada. The company works very closely with the Guardia Civil and Gold Rush strictly adheres to all laws and guidelines that are in place when running such a business. When purchasing any items the seller must provide identification and items are photographed and immediately sent to a police database to ensure they are not stolen. “I believe this helps make the neighbourhood safer and the communication we have with the Guardia Civil is perfect” explains Cesar who believes the business is helping boost the local economy, helping people get cash when they need it which they then use in other stores and services in the area.

BUY AND SELL: Professional and honest service. When valuing items, Gold Rush operates an honest service and will value the whole item and not just the gold. Cesar explains that other companies will ignore antique and unique pieces of jewellery and their precious stones and simply go on the weight of the gold. For pieces they sell on, they first get sent to the workshop where they are

UNIQUE: One-off pieces are on sale. cleaned and any cubic zirconia is replaced with real diamonds so even second hand items are like brand new.

Gold Rush do not have a high mark up and prefer to give a value for money service and a quick turn around on stock. They are proud to offer a buy back service where customers can return the item they bought weeks or months later. Jewellery repairs are also on hand through Paul’s expertise and knowledge as a jeweller. He has the latest 3D technology and he can also create bespoke one-off pieces to a customer’s own design. So for all gold and jewellery and cash services, visit Gold Rush situated within the Alcampo supermarket gallery, Zenia Boulevard. The store is open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 10pm. Call on 966 793 952. The Torrevieja store, just 100m from the main church on Calle Caballero de Rodas 25, can be contacted on 965 067 936, or call Quesada on 966 716 620.
