Finance 39 - 44 SEIZED: The joint operation resulted in cash, silver and gold being found.

Arrests made in gold fraud case MORE than 160 people have been arrested throughout Spain in a joint National Police and Tax Office operation against money laundering and tax fraud. The operation, which resulted in police seizing 6.5 tonnes of gold and silver, €1.69 million in cash, 52 vehicles and two boats, focused on a network of 180 cash for

gold businesses. Accounts and assets worth more than €16 million have also been frozen. The network took advantage of the boom in sales of precious metals to issue false invoices for up to €1 billion per year in order to launder the benefits of selling gold, Nigerian letter scams, property fraud and drug trafficking.

The companies were used to put stolen gold and silver jewellery into circulation and had double accounts to avoid tax. Police and tax officers searched more than 88 cash for gold shops, homes and companies in Valencia, Murcia, Malaga, Madrid, Barcelona, Tarragona, Castellon, Alicante, Cordoba, Granada, Toledo and Valladolid.

Closer to independence TWO areas of Ronda are closer to becoming independent towns. After years of red tape, the so-called Local Autonomous Entities (ELA) of Serrato and Montecorto have reported that Ronda has not opposed their plans to separate from the town. However, this year, a national law regarding local government administration came into effect, which establishes that new towns must have at least 5,000 inhabitants. This isn’t true of either ELA. There is also

the requirement they are financially independent, with sufficient resources to fulfil municipal obligations without the quality of the services being affected. However, Serrato and Montecorto have the support of the Junta de Andalucia and are confident the central government will not oppose their plans for autonomy which were first launched in 2011. Each of the ELAs have their own mayors who both say they hope the government will take into account the process began before the new law came into effect.

IN COURT: Princess Cristina of Spain.

Malaga lawyer is suspected of leaking court video A MALAGA lawyer is suspected of leaking the video of the court appearance of Princess Cristina in the Noos case. A video of her statement in court in Palma de Mallorca was recorded illegally. Judge Castro, in charge of the case, said he “had his suspicions” regarding who could have done it and an investigation was opened. Police visited the headquarters of Wouzee, the platform to which it was uploaded, to request information on the user who did so. The company was founded by a relative of Julita Cuquerella, who at one point was Urdangarin’s personal secretary. The lawyer from Malaga reportedly attended the hearing in place of another who was due to attend.

However, he denied having filmed the images and said he had called the National Police to help with their enquiries. The investigation is still under way and the lawyer says he has the greatest interest in the true culprit being revealed in order to clear his name. Urdangarin, Duke of Palma and the princess’s husband, could face 10 to 19 years in prison for embezzlement, corruption, document falsification, fraud and tax evasion. In court, Princess Cristina, claimed she did not know of the activities of Aizoon, the company set up allegedly to hide the €6 million of public funds illegally obtained through the Noos Institute, despite owning half of the company.

The officers had arrested a man, 51, when he was kerbcrawling in Malaga, as he was found carrying almost three kilos of marihuana.

Last year, Connery was given six months to answer questions about the sale of his house in Marbella in 1999 or face possible arrest. His villa, Malibu, was demolished and replaced with a development of more than 70 apartments, which were

Shotgun killer faces 17 years A MAN is facing almost 17 years in prison for allegedly killing a man in Archidona in July 2012 over a photo on a social networking site. The victim went to the accused’s house to reprimand him because he had uploaded a photo of a group of people including a woman with whom he had been romantically involved. Later that day, the accused discovered that the other man was in the town, attempting to locate his exgirlfriend. He went home, got a shotgun, and went in search of him. En route, two people took the weapon from him, but he got it back and reloaded it. When he saw the victim, less than three metres away in

per cent. The economic crisis is partly responsible and higher taxes at some Spanish airports, but the AVE has taken the heaviest toll on domestic flights. After the high-speed train lost 485,000 passengers in 2012, the Ministry of Public Works lowered fares. That decision paid off and the AVE moved 25.4 million people in 2013, an increase of 13.5 per cent.

Wage freeze for millions SPAIN’S biggest companies froze salaries for 4.35 million employees last year. Spain’s Minister of Labour Fatima Bañez read these figures without pessimism. “After a long period of intense salary increases, the Spanish economy is carrying out vital adjustments to correct significant imbalances,” Bañez said. She refuted suggestions that this was deliberate on the government’s part. “Nobody could claim that Spain has a model of low salaries,” the minister added. “That strategy is doomed to failure.” Official statistics relating to salaries are not particularly revealing and the government does little to clarify them, analysts claim.

The Hacienda (tax office) figures are reliable but there are 12 million wage-earners and they reveal only the earnings of the 4.35 million workers employed by companies whose turnover exceeds €6 million a year. These also slashed 163,000 jobs last year. Hacienda pointed out that there was a general strike in 2012 on November 15 and civil servants lost their Christmas bonus that year. These factors combined to make 2013 look better than it was with a 0.6 salary increase in the last quarter. Otherwise last year’s freeze would instead have meant a fall in earnings for those 4.35 million workers.

Broadband competition LAST year Jazztel gained more broadband clients than Telefonica, the first operator ever to achieve this. But it remained way behind the Spanish giants in total numbers of customers. In 2013 Telefonica (Movistar) acquired 237,326 more broadband clients, reaching 5.61 million homes. Jazztel added a further

263,114 new lines and now provides 855,109 broadband connections. Vodafone’s pursuit of the Spanish operator Ono was prompted by Telefonica’s dominance. The UK group commands only 7.6 per cent of the ADSL market and sees the cable operator as an opportunity to enter the market with a firm tread.

Loans alliance for Santander/Citroen BANCO SANTANDER was yesterday (Wednesday) due to officially announce a loans alliance with PSA Peugeot Citroen. The Madrid-based bank is expected to enter 50-50 joint ventures with Banque PSA Finance, Peugeot’s financing

branch, sources told news agency Reuters. It would also acquire a portfolio of loans from the carmaker’s financing arm. Consecutive rating downgrades driven by a drop in car sales in Europe forced the French Government to

intervene, guaranteeing €7 billion of Banque PSA Finance borrowing. This was part of a rescue totalling €18.5 billion. The operation would solve Peugeot’s capital and cash flow problems, and would eventually replace the French state

Spanish university graduates facing problems in the labour market SPANISH university graduates are having problems finding their place in the labour market. Almost 40 per cent of them hold a post for which they are overqualified, a report by the Ministry of Education has revealed. Of the students graduated in 2012, 22.8 per cent of them have a job that requires a lesser qualification, whereas the job of 16.8 per cent of them requires no qualification. This situation is more seen with graduates in Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.

The report on the Spanish university system also reveals that graduates don’t have the type of contract expected for their qualification; 26.1 per cent of them have a full-time temporary contract, while 9.6 per cent have a part-time temporary contract. Just 8.4 per cent of Spanish university graduates have an indefinite contract, but only part-time. Unemployment rates among graduate students in Spain also show discouraging results. In 2011, 9.7 per cent of unemployed men

in Spain aged between 25 and 64 held a university degree. Among women this figure went up to 11 per cent. This clearly contrasts with the average unemployment rate of graduates within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), which was of 4.2 and 5 per cent respectively. But figures are even worse for younger people, with 16.2 per cent of graduates aged between 25 and 32 being unemployed, more than double in the OECD (6.8 per cent).

recapitalisation deal with Chinese car-maker Dongfeng. Chinese press reported that the state-owned manufacturer is about to close an operation to buy 14 per cent of Peugeot’s capital. This would make Dongfeng one of the three main shareholders of the French group. Later in January, Dongfeng and Peugeot reached an outline deal to increase its capital by €3 billion. PSA Peugeot has a loan portfolio of €22 billion in 23 markets, of which €11.64 billion come from Western Europe and €8.38 billion from France. In the first quarter of 2013, it loaned nearly 376,000 vehicles, yielding €151 million in profits, 25 per cent less than in the same period the previous year.

Spain 49th in 2014 Index of Economic Freedom SPAIN is the 49th freest economy in the world, the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom published by The Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation says. This concept, defined by the report as the fundamental right of every human to control his or her own labour and property, is measured based on 10 quantitative and qualitative factors. Spain’s economic freedom score is of 67.2 points, 0.8 points lower than last year when it ranked 46th. This is mainly due to declines in the management of government spending, business freedom, and labour freedom. These elements, the annual index points out, have outweighed small improvements in trade freedom and freedom from corruption. Within the European Union, Spain ranks 22nd, behind Switzerland (first), Ireland (second) and the United Kingdom (fifth).

WORLD ECONOMY: Spain’s economic freedom scored 67.2 points. It is, however, placed in a better position than bigger economic powers like France (33rd), or Italy (35th). Europe’s score is still above world averages, but the index editors point out that it “has been undergoing tumultuous and uncertain times,” such as the sovereign debt crisis affecting the Eurozone. “Europe’s overall economic freedom rating remains undermined by weak scores in the management of public

spending, reflecting the cost of expanding government services and transfer payments that plainly hinder both productivity growth and dynamic job creation,” the editors wrote. In the 20 years this index has been published, the economic freedom score of Spain has improved by 4.4 points. The greatest achievements have been accomplished in the areas of market openness

and freedom from corruption, the report indicates. On a more negative note, the index points out that Spain continues to score below the world average in fiscal freedom, government spending and labour freedom. According to James Roberts, the index shows “that when economic freedom increases, global economy grows and poverty decreases.” Roberts, a researcher at The Heritage Foundation, made this claim during the launch of the index in Spain organised by think-tank FAES. “Countries with higher levels of economic freedom substantially outperform others in aspects such as economic growth, per-capita incomes, health care, education, protection of the environment, reduction of poverty and general welfare,” he explained. Roberts was joined by the Secretary of State for Trade, Jaime Garcia-Legaz, who

recognised Spain’s economy has relatively worsened. In that sense, Garcia-Legaz pointed out that the Spanish regions should take additional measures to control the public expenditure. “Spain needs to make an additional effort in budgetary consolidation and public expenditure reduction but, mainly because of the current distribution and the level of expenditure, it is the Autonomous Communities which have a longer way ahead than the State Administration or local administrative bodies,” he stated. Finally, Garcia-Legaz mentioned the two-year time lag that comes together with the methodology of the index. This means the 2014 edition analyses data up to June 2012, and that further measures taken by the Spanish Government to improve the economy will be shown in the index from next year.

OPINION & COMMENT

Radiotherapy needs to be nearer home I HAVE recently finished radiotherapy at the Hospital Clinic Benidorm, referred there by the Denia Hospital. Firstly I found everyone at both hospitals very friendly and caring and wish to thank them. My only problem was I found the travelling from Javea to Benidorm every day quite tiring, also quite expensive even using my own car, but finding someone to drive me. I talked to another patient who travelled from Pego every day. I wondered why Denia Hospital did not have this facility considering the number of people being treated for various cancer problems. I realise it is probably a question of funding such a machine and wondered if it were possible for some of the charities and associations to channel some of the money raised to fund such a project. I was lucky that my treatment did not run into many weeks but some of the people I spoke to were having to go for up to 27 weeks. Please could this be considered bearing in mind the number of people of all nationalities who require treatment. Patricia, Javea (Alicante)

Thanks Ric! I WOULD like to say a big thank you to your columnist in Almeria, Ric Polansky, for his article in edition 1492 regarding the almond blossom trail. We did the trip today (from our base at Cabo de Gata) and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will go back in a couple of weeks’ time to see if there is more blossom at the higher levels. We wouldn’t have known about this route had it not been for you. Rowan and Bernard Lee, Cabo de Gata, (Almeria) TAKEN FROM MY WINDOW IN LOS ALMACHARES, NERJA.

I have complained to the council about the constant sobbing, howling and screeching that is ubiquitous and uncivilised. I haven’t even had the courtesy of a reply and the girl I spoke to said ‘they are just dogs!’ Beverley Saunders, Alhaurin el Grande (Malaga)

Total sympathy Party town I AM in total sympathy with Dave from Turre’s remarks regarding cruel dog owners. (Issue 1492). We own two rescue dogs, and in the three-and-a-half years we have lived here I have also rescued eight puppies that were left out in the sun to die and were involved in the rescue of an adult dog. I have tried talking with Spanish dog owners. “It doesn’t matter” was the man’s reply when I asked why a dog in very poor condition was always on a leash, in all weather. Another looked at me blankly when I suggested that it was unacceptable for her dog to have been barking all night.

I WAS angered by the letter from Ms Morrison regarding noise levels (Issue 1492). Benidorm is a holiday resort, people spend hard-earned money to holiday here and have not come here to behave as if they were sat at home in the UK. In 1950 Benidorm was a fishing village, and has grown into a business which generates a lot of wealth. Brits who decide to move to Spain, I’m presuming Jane Morrison is one, and make a home in the epicentre of a holiday resort should have more sense. All the Spanish that I have met who make a living

with their businesses in the resort live out in the hills. I would suggest Jane Morrison move to a more suitable location. Failing that, she should speak with the owner of her apartment block and suggest that he not be so greedy as to rent out an apartment in a residential block to holidaymakers to make a fast buck. Benidorm has gained a particular kind of market which locals and expats should be a bit more grateful for. With flights, apartments and newer trends beginning to grow in other European resorts, groups

Be careful WE live just outside Salares (not far from Competa) and we think we might have been visited by bogus gas men. We had three phone calls from ‘a gas company’ saying they were coming to inspect our installation. We were suspicious but let them in and when they started to tell us what was wrong we pointed out that we had a legal revision and if there was a problem we would use our own plumber, who had been in the house only a few days earlier and replaced one of the pipes they said was illegal. They left but not before I had taken a photo of their very old van which was painted in orange and white but had no lettering. People need to be

Barbaric practice IT was good to see your article on the subject of Female Genital Mutilation. It is a practice which has always horrified me and it is good to see that the Spanish authorities are making an effort to try to rule it out amongst families from countries where it is common practice. It may be traditional, but it is also barbaric, and women need to know the threats to which they are exposing their daughters. A good education for both boys and girls, in most cases, would be much more effective in making sure young women remain ‘pure’ until marriage, if this is what their culture ordains. Most importantly, teach men to control their sexual urges and respect the women and girls. I have ordered one of the bracelets you mentioned from www.mundocooperante.org and if the money is just one step closer to preventing a girl from being mutilated, it will have been worth it. I will look into doing more in this cause. Amanda Yates, Benalmadena (Malaga)

BBC, ITV affordable and userfriendly packages now available from €125 with maximum support For a company that knows what is what in the communications and TV market look no further than Flash IPTV. Having been in business for 15 years as Total Tec computer shop, they are now branching out with Flash IPTV to offer customers the BBC and ITV channels now missing from our screens. Managers Richard Payne and Sonya Davies run the company from their Benalmadena showroom. Sonya explained: “We are offering people a customised product that is affordable and as user-friendly as possible.” Richard has been developing Flash TV’s IPTV box for 12 months to minimise all technical complications. The result: Once the box is turned on, buyers are presented with a TV guide where they simply select the desired channel. “The guides and channel links are run and kept updated by us, which means maximum support,” explained

FLASH IPTV: Free demonstration in-store. Richard. In fact, one of Flash IPTV’s distinctive features is their super customer support, both before and after purchasing. Sonya told us: “We’re one of the only local showrooms where customers can come in and actually see and try the boxes before they buy. And since everyone wants something different, we take the time to put something together that suits their needs.” To streamline clients’ purchases, Flash IPTV works together with internet providers in order to offer package deals for internet plus IPTV

channel services when needed. Sonya said: “We’re for our customers. We know the technical side of things and we won’t sell something we know won’t work.” Flash IPTV offers full follow-up both on the showroom premises and also remotely when necessary.

J. Edgar (Film, 2011)

In the 1920s, the United States of America was a lawless place. The Bureau of Investigation - later to become the FBI - was still in its infancy and incapable of calling Tommy gun-wielding gangsters to heel. Then came J Edgar Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio). Over almost half a century he revolutionised the US crime-fighting agency, cracking down on famous hoodlums.

Little Fockers (Film, 2010) BBC 3 from 10:00pm to 11:30pm The Meet The Parents franchise returns for a fun third instalment, and there's plenty more laughs as Stiller's Greg Focker once again goes head-to-head with humourless father-in-law De Niro. Greg (Ben Stiller) and Pam (Teri Polo) Focker are hosting their twins' fifth birthday party, giving their parents Jack (Robert De Niro) and Dina (Blythe Danner) and Bernie (Hoffman) and Roz (Barbara Streisand) a prime opportunity to reignite their feud. After a decade of verbally torturing Greg, however, fearsome fatherinlaw Jack seems to be warming to the hapless male nurse, and, after a health scare, is even priming Greg to take his place at the head of the family. But things soon conspire to blow up in Greg's face when Jack misconstrues an encounter between his son-in-law and flirtatious Viagra sales rep Andi (Jessica Alba), as Pam's golden boy ex Kevin (Owen Wilson) reappears on the scene.

Lincoln (Film, 2012)

•Daniel Day-Lewis •Sally Field •David Strathairn •Joseph GordonLevitt

In 19th-century America, civil war continues to rage between the Confederate south and the federal United States. Both sides grow tired of the war, but one issue keeps federal leader Abraham Lincoln (Daniel DayLewis) from forming peace the South's insistence on the use of slavery. He's determined to force through an amendment to the constitution which would free thousands of slaves, but as more and more lives are sacrificed to the war, his proud position comes under scrutiny from all sides of the political spectrum, and his chances of creating history look slimmer with each month that passes.

Agent Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) is a near-superhuman assassin, thanks to a top-secret government drugs programme that enhances both his mental and physical power. News of the exposure of two previous programmes has reached the CIA top brass who decide that, for the sake of the agency, Outcome must be terminated. Suddenly, Cross is in mortal danger as his employer begins to eradicate any evidence of the controversial programme - including its participants.

One reason Spanish court cases slower: you can lie IT was not that long ago that Jeffrey Archer was convicted for perjury and perverting the course of justice for lying in a libel case, when disputing allegations that he had paid for sex. Archer had made two mistakes: • To think that lying in court was a preferable option than to admit he had performed - in the words of Justice Caulfield - ‘cold, unloving, rubber-insulated sex in a seedy hotel.’ • To lie in a UK court, as a plaintiff. Because had Mr Archer strayed in Spain, or rather had he chosen to lie in a Spanish court, no conviction could have ever been passed since, unlike most common-law systems, Spanish laws do not contemplate perjury as a criminal offence. In fact, quite the contrary: claimants and defendants are entitled, in fact expected, to lie in Court. The key legal precept is article 24.2 of the Spanish Constitution

By Antonio Flores Abogado/Lawyer LLM (Essex) - Reg. Nº 4712 I.C.A. Málaga E-mail: aflores@lawbird.com Homepage: http://belegal.com/blog-by-antonio-flores www.lawbird.com

that states, inter alia, the following: “…Likewise, all persons have the right to… not make selfincriminating statements… to not declare themselves guilty.” But make no mistake as to who can lie in court: witnesses will be prosecuted if they do so for ‘false testimony’ (falso testimonio), a charge that carries prison terms. Also, you can be charged with falsely reporting a crime if you employ deceit (denuncia falsa) and likewise, be convicted of a crime. In everyday judicial practice, the above distinction can be easily noted: claimants and

defendants are not required to give their statements under oath, whereas witnesses will have been previously sworn (warned too). In my opinion, creating two types of liars (those who are allowed to and those who aren’t) causes court cases to become protracted because defendants will be less prone to admit liability, even if wrongdoing is obvious, just because there are no legal consequences to prevaricating. A recently example about this relates to two bankers who were deposed in court: they lied shamelessly about their involvement in an Equity Release case and so did the representative for the bank, who was close to denying that their own publicity that was no longer available (yet still traceable via www.wayback machine.com) was ever produced. I doubt these bankers would have chosen to mislead if they were tried in English Courts.

Get toned arms for summer with these handy tips WORRIED about exposing your arms when the weather warms up? There are a number of quick and simple exercises to try to help tone up those flabby bingo wings. Bicep curl The bicep curl helps to give definition to the upper arm. If you don’t have weights, improvise with tins of food or water bottles. Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent and arms by your sides. Start with your elbows slightly bent; hold the weights so that your palms face outwards. Bend your arms and lift the weights towards your shoulders. Keep your elbows tucked in close to your body. Keep the movement slow and controlled and take care to keep your back straight. Do three sets of 10-15 repetitions every other day Tricep dip This exercise concentrates on the triceps.

It can be done off the end of a bed or a sofa and involves lifting your own bodyweight to help improve posture and strengthen and protect the skeletal system. Standing with your back to your bed or sofa, place feet hip-width apart; keep your back straight and bend your knees. Lower yourself down until your arms are bent at 90 degrees, then push back up until arms are straight, but not locked. Do three sets of 10-15 repetitions every other day.

TRICEP DIPS: Perfect for toning up arms.

Botox could help you lose weight

BOTOX is being tested as a way of beating obesity. The anti-wrinkle treatment is being trialled on patients in Norway who are having it injected into their stomach wall muscles. Researchers say it slows the speed at which food travels through the stomach by up to 50 per cent, making patients feel fuller for longer and therefore reducing the amount they eat. Studies on animals have suggested it could reduce by up to a third in just five weeks. Researchers say it could be a viable alternative to gastric bands with Botox being cheaper and less invasive than surgery.

Bioresonance therapy gets TV time in Mijas By Carol Adams, Stop Smoking in Spain

I JUST wanted to tell you about a recent TV interview I did on Mijas TV where, as they had heard great things about me and Bioresonance therapy, I was invited to appear on their Lifestyle programme. I felt that the interview went very well particularly as I subsequently had a tremendous amount of calls and an all-round excellent response… despite me being very nervous! If you would like to see a recording of the interview you can find it on my website www.stopsmokinginspain. com or email me at carol@stopsmokinginspain. com and I will send you a link. As well as a full, easy to understand, explanation of how the therapy works, I also show you the Bioresonance machine I use. Bioresonance is nothing to do with hypnosis and no drugs or nicotine replacement products are involved. Furthermore, normally after one session the addiction has been cancelled so that you suffer no cravings. If by any chance you were to need a second treatment then this is free of charge. But this is rare. It’s completely safe and harmless and, well quite simply, it works! Since becoming a therapist, some eight years ago, I have written

The TV interview where I explain how Bioresonance Stop Smoking therapy works. an eBook which gives much more information and you can either request a FREE copy on the website or download it on Amazon Kindle where it is also free of charge. If you do not have access to a computer just give me a ring and I will send you information via the good old-fashioned post. Even more good news is that if you book an appointment before the end of March there is €20 off, and if your friend stops with you then the second person is half price. This includes a free home visit. Should you, your friends or relatives like an

appointment in the UK, then I run monthly clinics there and I’m situated very near to the main London to Brighton railway station. Alternatively, for groups of four or more I will come to you anywhere in the UK. If you would like to discuss this therapy or have any questions then please call me on 649 123 238. I hope to make you a non smoker very soon.

Kind regards Carol… ex smoker after having Bioresonance therapy myself nine years ago.

Dealing with calf pain Estelle Mitchell www.thebodyworksclinic.com CALF PAIN can be a tricky problem to deal with and it is appropriate to pay attention to it before it becomes a debilitating injury. Most of us will have experienced calf pain but, even though this is common, most people do not realise what happens ‘inside’ the calf.

The calf, ankle and foot are controlled largely by a series of muscles and tendons which function as a single biomechanical unit. These muscles work together to lift or lower the heel. All the parts of the lower leg are interconnected; for example, when you stand on your toes, you can feel the muscles in the back of your calf doing most of the work. Because of its structure and because it absorbs the impact from activities such as walking, running and jumping, the lower leg is subject to more exercise-related injuries. The most common cause of calf pain is an injury to the soleus muscle as it often takes more of a beating than the larger muscle, as it acts first. The reason for this type of injury is either overuse and/or not warming up

properly before exercise. This is all very well if you are an active individual, but, if you are not and you get that common form of calf pain ‘cramp’, what is causing it? Research is still going on, but the problem is being associated with the biomechanics of your feet, especially if you are flat-footed. The reason they are suggesting this is, if you are walking biomechanically incorrectly, an already shortened muscle is stimulated to contract even further. This often happens at night because of the natural position we lie in (with the knees slightly bent and feet pointing slightly downwards), the already stressed calf muscle is further shortened and prone to cramps. If you suffer from cramp, stretching and massaging the area will

relieve the discomfort but prevention is always better than cure, so stretch the calf at the start of every day and before exercise to help maintain flexibility in the muscles and tendons. Dehydration is another major factor be it because you are taking water retention tablets or simply not drinking enough water, and remember alcohol, tea and coffee all dehydrate. The common denominator in the prevention of calf pain is the biomechanical one. It is widely understood in the medical community that if you do not walk correctly, you put your whole body under enormous stresses and strains. Leg cramps are more common in older people with about one in three over the age of 60 being affected and about half over the age of 80. When

you are young, the body easily adapts to these stresses but, as you grow older, eventually the body can adapt no more, shouts enough is enough and rebels in the only way it knows – Pain!

If you have any questions related to the symptoms and/or treatment of calf pain please call The Bodyworks Clinic on 952 883 151 or visit www.TheBodyworks Clinic.com

LEO (July 24 - August 23) A situation could become complicated if you do not plan

6-Star Quiz 1. A method of music instruction from the 1890s that emphasises physical response to the music, was the origin of the name of this duo, formed in 1980? 2. Formed in Birmingham in 1978, this rock band took their name from the villain of the cult science fiction film Barbarella? 3. Formed in Stockholm in 1972, this band’s name is an acronym of the first letters of the band members’ first names? 4. Having trouble getting repeat bookings, this progressive rock group, formed in Luton in 1969, took to changing their name frequently to continue playing the London club circuit. Band names were often supplied by their booking agents’ staff, one of whom, a history enthusiast, eventually christened them after an 18th-century agriculturist, who invented the horse-drawn see drill? 5. The name of this British rock band, formed in Deptford in 1977, comes from the band’s financial situation at the time of forming? 6. The name of this electronic music band, formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex, was inspired by a French fashion magazine?

even more difficult to get out of. Being cosy is one thing, but getting bogged down, mentally and physically, is another. All you need is to keep your optimism alive and use your imagination. Perhaps you are spending too much time with an older person or someone who has a dim outlook on life. SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Are you suffering from winter blues? Although it is a common feeling at this time of the year, keep optimistic. There is so much to look forward to, in fact, that you are spoilt for choice. Although your social life may be in a bit of a rut, some sparkling moves from you will get things moving.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Ruts are awful things to get into but

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 December 21) Recent events have perhaps left a gap in your social life that is hard to fill. Patience is needed because it would be foolish to rush into something new if your heart is involved. Concentrating on work and other people will alleviate any loneliness.

Sudoku 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.

CAPRICORN (December 22 January 20) A loss of patience with a situation shows this week but is not to your advantage. Whatever you feel, be subtle in your approach. Try to see your position clearly and the result will be that you realise you have more control than you thought. Seeking advice while being honest and telling the full story serves best.

LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION

AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) A feeling that you should totally commit yourself to something or someone this week should be avoided. You will come up against a brick wall if a situation is forced. Time is all that is required to see things change for the better.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) A lost cause tries to demand your attention, but you must try to see the situation for what it is. Sentimentality should not come into business or be allowed to upset your home life. What is past should remain so, do not torture yourself. Bring your mind and spirits up by looking forward to summer holidays.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) The temptation to run round like a headless chicken is strong this week. There seem to be so many demands on your time that things become confusing. Be sure you are getting enough rest because this time of the year can be fraught for you.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Although health should be good, energy may be a little low. A bit of a

mystery surrounds a close friend and your opinion may be sought. Hold fire until all the facts are known and you are sure a person has been honest with you because someone may try to keep you in the dark to get the right answer. .

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Social activities are likely to change at the last minute. If energy levels are not as high as normal, use this week for planning. With holidays in mind, the summer seems far away but maybe a weekend trip will fill the gap. Spending time with an old friend reminds you of how things used to be.

Born February 23, 1954. Rosendo Mercado Ruiz is a Spanish rock singer and guitarist. He was a founding member of bands Ñu and Leño, and is considered to be a prominent exponent of so-called ʻSpanish rock.ʼ He released his first solo album in 1985, and has had more than a dozen since.

Is security going too far? SECURITY at Heathrow airport in the UK recently confiscated a Toy Story Woody the cowboy doll because he was carrying a miniature gun.

A

NGELA WILLIAMS, aged 57, from La Marina Pueblo, Alicante, believes the authorities may have gone a bit too far in confiscating the Woody toy: “It is a bit over the top and they should be able to tell if it is just a toy or something more. I would worry now about taking my grandkids to the airport and what toys they were carrying.” Carl Barnett, aged 69, from urbanisation La Marina, Alicante, however, believes it is right that the authorities are extra cautious: “It is sad but in today’s climate it is better to be safe

than sorry.” Retired Carrie Hipkins, aged 62, also agrees: “You can’t take any risks and if he was carrying his child’s toy without his child being with him, it would look a little odd to the authorities, so I think they were right to check.” Terry and June Moore, aged 67 and 64, who live in Partaloa and are both retired, agree that security is important, but feel a liitle leeway is required. “We don’t think a toy should be impounded. We are all for security, but common sense should prevail if they are satisfied it is a toy. In our opinion, the more security there is, the better.”

June Moore

Ron Hardy, 78, who lives in Albox, Almeria, said: “It is a bit ridiculous to take away a toy. They should get a life and get out more. I haven’t flown in a long time but obviously airport security is generally very important.” But Anne Collins, a 28-year-old waitress from Marbella, Malaga, feels airport security is getting too onerous. “Why on earth can you not take through a bottle of water? I was at Stansted airport and security was ridiculous. The queues to get through were about a mile long. Yes, there should be checks, but some of the security personnel seem to be jobsworths who take things to extremes.”

The world’s first Manchego cheese museum to open

THE first museum in the world totally devoted to Manchego cheese is to open in March in Manzanares (Castilla La Mancha). The culinary gallery is set to put new energy into the town with a series of activities revolving around the food, including tastings or screenings on how to make it. The Manzanares Manchego Cheese Museum, as it’s officially known, will be located in the farmyard of a historical building in the town’s historic centre. It will share the premises with a regional museum that will host a permanent sculpture and painting exhibition, as well as the winning works of the Manzanares National Painting Competition. Following the opening of the museum, the Manzanares Town Hall has organised the first National

Manchego Cheese Fair, to be held from April 11 to 13. It will feature cheeses from Galicia, Asturias, Cataluña and, of course, Castilla La Mancha. This is not the first culinary museum to open in Spain this year. As reported by the Euro Weekly News, Europe’s first vermouth museum will open in Reus (Cataluña) in April. It will feature 1,800 vermouth brands, with more than 800 bottles from 50 different countries.

Food of the week: super broccolini or ‘bimi’ BROCCOLINI, a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale, is this week’s super food. Known in Spain as ‘bimi,’ this green vegetable is often confused with baby broccoli due to its small florets and thinner stalks.

But the truth is the hybrid might be healthier than the original vegetable. Studies say broccolini florets have a higher content in dietary fibre, proteins and minerals than regular broccoli.

Specifically, they have more calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese and zinc, minerals reportedly of great dietary importance. Broccolini also has more glucosinolates, a natural class of organic compounds that act as anti-cancer agents. In fact, a study suggests broccolini can be used in novel anticancer therapeutic strategies due to its inhibitory effect on human colon cancer OLIVE OIL: cells.

More olive oil, less sold MORE olive oil was produced in Spain during the first quarter of the 2013-2014 campaign, but less quantity has been sold. Temporary figures released by the Spanish Agency for Food Information and Control (AICA) reveal that 1.23 million tonnes of olive oil were produced in this period. This is a 124 per cent increase in relation to the previous year, despite weather conditions delaying the harvesting of the olive. Olive oil sales don’t seem to match production figures, as only 498,200 tonnes of oil were sold in the same period according to AICA.

HE longest established fish and chip shop on the coast is still going strong. Crispy Cod is located in Fuengirola, approximately 200 metres from the town centre on the Paseo Maritimo near Hotel Piramides, just 10 metres from the sea. We found Crispy Cod to be the place to go for a classic fish and chips meal with some fun extras. You can expect friendly, smiling service by owner Sean and his efficient waiting staff. The breezy covered terrace overlooks the beach and the promenade in a great location, with inside seating also available. For fish, Crispy Cod of course offers the popular cod, that is, boneless, battered Icelandic fish that is perfectly fried and very tasty. The shop offers other types of fish as well, including haddock, plaice and scampi. Crispy Cod’s chips are made from English potatoes that are brought in from the UK daily. But the Crispy Cod is about much more than just fish and chips. It has a wide selection of options, including 100 per cent Irish beef burgers, various preparations of chicken (like half chicken and chicken nuggets), seven different kinds of Pukka pies, fishcakes, pickled eggs and onions, gherkins and even pineapple fritters. The mushy peas and tartar sauce are home-made fresh every day.

other Neater Heaters, the customer has had to make a choice between wall-mounted and free standing. But not any more. Now the customer can have it wall-mounted in the living room, and simply unclip it and move it to the bedroom at night.” Neater Heater was created five years ago because, having decided to use electricity to heat their homes; expats Richard and

Tony couldn’t find anywhere in Spain that sold good, but affordable, electric heaters. The choices were either: very expensive; very inefficient; or extremely ugly and sometimes all three! However, by a stroke of good fortune, they became aware of two Norwegian manufacturers who made extremely efficient, stylish, and affordable electric

convector heaters. Neater Heaters can now be found warming homes from Barcelona to Cadiz. Incorporating modern technology with Scandinavian design, Neater Heaters are stylish, economic and extremely efficient. Whether you choose the basic, but moderately priced, ADAX Standard heater, or from the more stylish BEHA, NEO, and

GLAMOX ranges, you can be confident that you are choosing the best in Norwegian technology, reliability, and value for money. Now, thanks to the NEO 2, we can add ‘mobile and versatile’ to their long list of attributes. With the price of all fuels going up it is as important now, as it always has been, to choose your electric heater wisely. Neater Heaters offer the perfect balance of efficiency, economy, and effectiveness. Neater Heater: Norway’s answer to heating your home in Spain. For more information contact one of our stockists near you.

Cool winter garden projects HOPEFULLY your winter cut back and clean-up is complete so there is

now time to develop one or two new attractive features ready for next summer in order to differentiate your garden from others. There are a number of possibilities that would add interest, appeal and life-style value for the effort and expenditure involved. Which of the following would appeal to you? As you see there are more than flowers to make gardens attractive. • A rockery making use of the natural slope or terracing of the garden or a pile of builders’ rubble covered with earth and attractive weathered rocks. • A water garden perhaps cascading through or alongside the rockery or just a standalone pond or fountain.

• A jacuzzi as an alternative or in addition to a pool. • Permanent facilities for al fresco cooking. Perhaps a barbecue, an oven or a fully equipped Spanish style outside kitchen with space for cooking paellas and with a wood fired oven. Perhaps this is the year to perfect the cooking of paellas as our book is now available from Amazon Books. Incidentally it is now also published in Spanish if you are looking for a gift for a Spanish neighbour. • An aviary for breeding tropical birds or a hen house for organic eggs. • A formal herb garden planted up with culinary and medicinal herbs.

• Topiary features by trimming and training the top of a hedge or individual specimen trees. • Additional fruit trees to source ecological produce. • The making or purchase and installation of bird boxes, feeding tables and baths. The earlier the better in the month to attract this year’s nesting birds. • A terrace and seat facing the best views beyond the hedge. Such possibilities are discussed in chapter three of ‘Your Garden in Spain - practical ideas for gardens that match your Spanish lifestyle.’ Other alternatives discussed elsewhere in the book are to create: • A patio garden

incorporating one or more of the above features or an attractive iron or wooden gazebo. • Raised beds for growing fresh vegetables organically for daily harvests. • A greenhouse to make it easier to raise new plants from seeds and cuttings or protect delicate plants during the coldest winter months. Probably there is insufficient time this winter to construct all the ideas that appeal to you so decide what you eventually want, prioritise them and start with the one or those that will give the most pleasure this summer.

Can we pay our community president? THE question whether a community can legally pay a salary to their President often arises and although it is common for communities to provide some sort of monetary remuneration to the President, there are considerations. Many a President certainly deserves a medal for the work they do but a salary is another matter. According to the Law of Horizontal Property, Presidents are not supposed to

Community Law Corner By José Luis Navarro Solicitor and Property Administrator for Intercala Administration joseluis@intercala.com

www.intercala.com with Pete Woodall, Woody’s Los Boliches

receive any payment. However the law does not actually forbid the President receiving compensation for

the work they do. The position of President is usually demanding and the tasks many; in addition to community meetings, there are meetings with town halls, notaries, administrators, gardeners, maintenance personnel and builders. Plus answering emails and letters, etc. In addition Presidents may have to lay out their own money for phone calls, petty cash payments and even attend court. So, some form of compensation would seem to be reasonable. The consideration lies between receiving compensation and payment of a salary. A salary could involve payment of income tax, fulfilling the community’s obligations of employment, social security

and all the associated paper work. If the annual salary is over €3,005.06 it has to be included on the new community declaration made every February to the taxation office. A more simple solution would be to relieve the President - partially or totally - of their obligation to pay community fees. This way the community is simply choosing to take in less money - as opposed to paying out more money. A simple majority vote at the AGM to reduce or remove the President’s community fees is enough. To avoid an owner starting legal proceedings, it is important to be correct in the way the approval for non-payment of community fees by the President is recorded in AGM minutes. Furthermore there would be no need to amend the community statutes and the decision would be in keeping with the spirit of the law as interpreted by most court judges in Spain. We solicitors for Intercala Community Administration strongly urge readers to seek competent and specific advice.

Successful Swedish property franchise needs properties to sell to ready buyers

FASTIGHETSBYRAN is Sweden’s leading real estate agency in Spain. Owned by Swedbank, the largest bank in Sweden, Fastighetsbyran has grown to nine franchised offices in Spain since 2008. “We started in Spain in 2008, in Alicante. Since then we have grown to nine separate offices in six years, located on the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca, Mallorca, and Gran Canaria,” says Marbella office owner Kent Schanke. The nine Spanish offices join the 250 franchised offices in Sweden. Fastighetsbyran has three offices on the Costa del Sol and Axarquia. Kent Schanke and Olle Westerling run the Marbella office. The Fuengirola office is owned by Niclas Udden, while in Nerja the office is headed by Olle and Christina Bergsten. Though based in Spain, each of these three offices works together with the bank in Sweden as they serve their customers here locally. When asked what EWN readers needed to know, Schanke replied:

LOCAL OFFICES: In Fuengirola, Marbella and Nerja.

“We want all the readers to know that we need properties. There are lots of Scandinavians looking for a second home in Spain, along the whole coast.” Demographics range from retired people to younger families, which means Fastighetsbyran is seeking all kinds of properties to accommodate its varied clientele. “We have the buyers,” said Schanke. “We need people wanting to sell their place to contact us.” As a franchise, Fastighetsbyran offers

Avoid the phishers, use common sense LAST WEEK we discussed the subject of ‘phishing.’ What it was and a couple of clues on how to spot that someone has a baited hook with your name on it. Today, I’m offering some advice - simple common sense - that may help you spot the ‘Bad People.’ First thing to consider when opening an email is “Is this the sort of thing my friend would send me?” If the answer is ‘no’ then get suspicious. Usually suspect emails fall into two general types. Type A is the short email with one or more lines with some form of web address. It can take you to a site with a ‘hidden code’ within the web page. This is known as a ‘Drive-by’ and is sneaky and really easy to remove if you think you’ve been targeted. Type B is the VERY long winded explanation apparently by ‘someone in

Trevor Spencer Computers authority’, which sends you into a semi sleep state and, before you know it, you have sent them your bank details. If anyone from your bank, Paypal account, credit card company, British Embassy or anywhere else wants any form of information ABOUT ANYTHING or is in a language you don’t understand, go direct to the source without using the phone number, weblink, email address or any other form of contact that you don’t recognise that may be in the email. Tell them to GO PHISH or whatever chosen expletive you prefer. Any questions, email me on canducomputing@hot mail.co.uk or 689892745.

Explaining tax residence

By Dolores Perujo of Bonafide Lawyers

TAX residence indicates the way in which world assets are held. We can differentiate between Tax Residence of natural persons and Tax Residence of legal entities. Here we will explain the Tax Residence of natural persons, which is what interests and concerns most residents in Spain. The Law of Tax on the Income of Natural Persons (IRPF) (an internal law) considers that the taxpayer has their habitual place of residence in Spain in the following circumstances: a) They remain more than 183 days in Spanish territory per year. To determine this period, sporadic absences won’t be deducted, unless the taxpayer can prove Tax Residence in another country. b) That the centre or base of the taxpayer’s activities or financial interests are directly or indirectly located in Spain. c) The residence in Spain of their spouse and children under 18. The Spanish Tax Agency must prove residence in Spanish territory 183 days of the year, which is very difficult. Due to this problem, they will take into consideration

DOLORES PERUJO: Tax residence is what concerns most residents in Spain. the centre of the financial interests of the natural person. However, the criteria cannot be applied alone. The lack of proper determination of the concept itself allows for great flexibility and range when considering the different financial interests (income, assets, expenses, consumption, employees, management, etc…) When there is a conflict between two states, bilateral Double Tax Avoidance Agreements will be used, which will attempt to avoid the circumstance by establishing certain decisive criteria to settle double residence conflict which

could arise between states which have signed the agreements. For example, the agreement between the Kingdom of Spain and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to avoid double taxing and prevent tax evasion in matters concerning tax in income and assets, and its protocol, signed in London on March 14, 2013, in article 4, solves the case of a natural person residing in both of the signing states. A) The taxpayer will only be considered a resident in the State where they have a permanent abode at their disposal; if they

have a permanent abode at their disposal in both States, they will be considered residents only of the one where they maintain their most important personal and financial relationships (centre of vital interest); B) If the case in which it was impossible to determine the State in which a person has their centre of vital interests, or if they do not have a permanent abode at their disposal in either of the States, they will be considered residents only of the State where they habitually reside; C) If they habitually reside in both States, or do not reside habitually in either, they will be considered residents of the State the nationality of which they hold; D) If they hold the nationality of both States, or do not hold the nationality of either, the competent authorities of the signing States will resolve the situation on mutual agreement.

Audi S1, a great name makes a comeback with two models A

www.euroweeklynews.com

UDI’S S1, the car that would see the brand dominating the World Rally Championship, is back as a road-going version. The German manufacturer presented the S1 and the S1 Sportback, the new flagship models in the compact A1 model line. The 2.0 TFSI engine fitted with a turbocharger develops 170 kW and produces up to 370 Nm of torque. The two-litre engine accelerates the Audi S1 and the S1 Sportback

from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 and 5.9 seconds respectively. The top speed is 250 km/h. On average the TFSI consumes just 7.0 or 7.1 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. The S1 and the S1 Sportback, expected to be available in the second quarter of the year from €29,950, come with Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel drive onboard. The suspension on the two compact sport models has been revamped. The electromechanical power steering has been developed. Modified pivot bearings on the front axle enhance turning. At the rear a four-link design replaces the

compound link rear suspension used on the A1 models. A larger brake master cylinder, as well as large brake discs improves deceleration. The two sporty compact models are supplied exfactory with 17-inch wheels with 215/40 R17 tyres; Audi offers 18-inch wheels with 225/35 R18

tyres as an option. Their xenon plus headlights are all-new while the LED rear lights come with new, horizontally structured graphics. Four new exterior colours supplement the available paint finishes. The interior of the two compact sport models is finished in dark tones; black dominates, including on the air vent sleeves. The instruments feature S-specific dark-gray scales; the pedal caps are made out of brushed stainless steel. As an alternative to the standard sport seats, Audi fits the S sport seats with integrated head restraints.
