Summer tourism looks positive

HOTELS in the province had the best April for the number of visitors since 1999, with 463,978 in total, according to the National Institute of Statistics. In the first four months of the year, Malaga Province’s hotels have seen 1.17 million visitors, which is 6.1 per cent more than the same period last year. Figures show that there

have been 4.9 per cent more Spanish tourists and 6.9 per cent more foreign tourists. Marbella in particular is looking forward to the arrival of Arab tourists. They are expected to be more numerous than ever, especially in August, due to political instability in other destinations which they favour. In addition, the holy month of Ramadan this year falls

before August, their favourite month to travel. Kuwaitis and Saudi Arabians have always been fond of Marbella, but now the area is also seeing more visitors from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco. Malaga Province is the third favourite Spanish destination for Middle Eastern travellers after Madrid and Barcelona.

Bogus inspectors arrested FOUR people were arrested in Malaga for their alleged involvement with a criminal organisation carrying out bogus gas inspections in private homes. Twenty-six people have been arrested in total in Malaga, Alicante, Madrid and the Balearic Islands, and are thought to have tricked as many as 5,000 people. Another two have been charged, also in Malaga.

They offered periodic gas inspections initially telling the victims it would cost them €50. However, once the ‘repairs’ began, they told them that they had found other problems which would put the price up, and on occasions charged up to €1,200. In some cases they also stole valuable items from the homes they entered.

The victims were normally elderly foreign residents in Spain. They are thought to have obtained close to €500,000 with the fraud. The Guardia Civil recommends not letting anyone unknown into the home and checking the identity of alleged gas inspectors by calling the official number of the company they claim to work for.

TEAM OF SURGEONS: Performing a transplant.

National Organ and Tissue Donors’ Day IN Spain, National Organ and Tissue Donors’ Day is held on the first Wednesday in June. For more than 20 years, Spain has been a world leader for organ donation and transplants. In 2013, Spain carried out 4,279 transplants thanks to 1,655 donors. Earlier this year, a record was broken when 45 transplants were carried out in just 24 hours. Most of the transplants in 2013 were kidneys (2,552), followed by 1,093 liver transplants, 285 lung, 249 heart, 92 pancreas and eight intestinal. Tissue such as bone, corneas and heart valves can also be donated. Spain has 35.12 donors per million inhabitants, well above the European average of 19 per million. More than 50 per cent of donors are over the age of 60.

Quote of the Week WE said from the start that we would win and we have come through former minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment and conservative Partido Popular candidate in the EU elections, Miguel Arias Cañete.

Becoming an organ donor in Spain is quite easy, all that is required is a donor card, which is not legally binding, but does show the holder’s wish to donate their organs when they die. According to Spanish law, anyone deceased is a potential donor, unless they have expressed in life their wish for their organs not to be donated. Despite this, the usual procedure is to ask for written authorisation from the person’s relatives. It is not enough to present a donor card, which is why those wishing to donate are told to inform their relatives of their will so that they do not oppose. If there are any organs they do not wish to donate, they should also make this known. For more information, visit the site of the National Transplant Organization,

Vagrant jailed for killing policeman A HOMELESS German man, 37, who was arrested for killing a National Police officer in Malaga, has been remanded in prison. Stefan Reinert, who stabbed the policeman, 33, in the chest twice, was initially admitted to

Malaga University Hospital to be treated for wounds in the chest and stomach, which he sustained in the confrontation with the police. He appeared before a judge in Malaga and was remanded in prison.

Police went to identify him as he was wanted for abusing his former partner and had more than 30 prior reports on his record, often for attacking and resisting the authorities, as well as robbery with violence.

He grabbed the weapon of one of the officers and had to be subdued by five of them due to his violence for which he was well-known in the area and feared by residents and other vagrants. He is believed to have mental

problems and take drugs. When asked for ID by officers, he attacked them, killing one of them by stabbing him in the chest. The officers shot at him as he was attempting to escape and four bullets hit him, according to the investigation. Two others ricocheted, injuring two bystanders, who have since been released from hospital.

Marbella’s beach bars dust off their loungers for a hot summer season M

ARBELLA is famous for its ‘chiringuitos’, serving drinks, snacks and lunch right on the sand. These range from basic huts with plastic chairs to chic and comfortable beach bars where you can relax in style. One of the best in the area for a more luxurious experience is MC Beach, the Marbella Club Hotel’s beach restaurant. It will be reopening its white decks and sea-blue beach beds for another summer season on Friday 30th May. Decked in a palette of soft whites and blues, it provides a haven for those who want to experience the more serene, relaxed side of Marbella. Open from 11.30am to 7pm for sunbathing in style and from 1pm to 5pm for lunch, this is the perfect place to enjoy long lunches and lazy days in the sun. “You know that summer is here when MC Beach opens,” John Thomson, Corporate Director of Food & Beverage, explains. “We will be open for lunch from Friday, May 30th, and then from July we will extend our opening hours into the evening to take advantage of the balmy summer nights. It’s a great summer hangout throughout the season.” MC Beach is much more than you would expect from the average chiringuito, yet still provides the relaxed, informal atmosphere you want at the beach. The restaurant offers an impressive menu of fresh seafood, authentic Andalucian cuisine, delicious salads and meats from the charcoal grill. A few favourites include the Fried Fish ‘Malaguena’ style with Aioli, Fish and Seafood Paella and Summer Salad with Tuna.

12 face fines not jail in Mallon death case MALAGA’S Public Prosecutor is now asking for 12 of the 15 people charged for the death of Stephen Mallon, 49, in Competa in June 2009, to be fined rather than receive prison sentences.

The prosecutor was asking for one year each in prison for 12 of the accused, but has now changed this to fines of €3,000. One man is facing 12 years in prison for manslaughter and two others are facing four years each

for grievous bodily harm. Mr Mallon had travelled to his holiday home in Competa with twin sons Carl and Peter to celebrate their 17th birthday. On June 5, 2009, a fight involving at least 30 people broke out in bar La Estrella after a man set upon one of the twins. During the scuffle, which Mr Mallon reportedly attempted to break up, he fell from a five-metre-high wall.

Malibu urbanisation needs a licence THE Malibu luxury urbanisation near Puerto

Banus, at the centre of the Goldfinger corruption case, will have to obtain a first occupation licence. The promoters of the urbanisation, ‘By the Sea’, considered that the licence had been granted based on the lack of response from the administration. However, this theory has been rejected by a Malaga court and further

confirmed by the Andalucian High Court of Justice. Therefore they will have to legalise the urbanisation by compensating Marbella City Hall as stipulated in the General Plan for Urban Development (PGOU). Back in 1986, one villa, belonging to Sean Connery, was allowed on the plot.

However, 72 homes were later built with the approval of the urban planning councillor, Julian Muñoz. Benefits reportedly amounted to €53 million. At the time, ‘By the Sea’ was in the name of Connery’s wife, Micheline Roquebrune, who remains charged in the Goldfinger case, although charges against the actor were lifted.

However, the hospital concludes that unfortunately, there are many more cases which are not treated, and in many cases injuries can be taken for something which has happened accidentally. Fifty-eight per cent of the children who were victims of abuse were girls who had been sexually assaulted or emotionally abused. However, in boys, physical abuse and negligence was more common. More than 50 per cent were under the age of six. Thirty per cent sustained slight injuries, 51 per cent moderate, and 19 per cent severe.

They are located in Nueva Atalaya and in the Mar y Sierra district. Each will have six exercise machines to help improve strength, balance and physical output, and are especially recommended for people over 60.

THIS year’s Marbella Luxury Weekend will be held from June 5 to 8 in Puerto Banus. The Mayor, Angeles Muñoz, said the event is one of many organised by the city hall to boost Marbella’s image as an example of quality and excellence at an international level. Seventy companies will be taking part and there will be various activities.


Property market looking up PROPERTY sales in Marbella are on the rise, according to the Ministry of Public Works, which reports that 3,115 houses were sold in the city in 2013. This is 23.6 per cent more than the previous year and there is movement within the property sector in the area with views to building new complexes. Most buyers of existing properties are foreigners who are taking advantage of the current situation, with lower prices and banks now being more willing to give credit. Meanwhile, when it comes to the commercial sector, Malaga is also at the top of its game, and the favourite location is Calle Larios, in high demand amongst major retailers.


Prison for broken nose A MAN has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for breaking the nose of another during a fight in Ronda in May 2010.

The accused will have to pay the victim â‚Ź46,387 in compensation and is banned from coming within 50 metres of him.

4 injured in bouncy castle FOUR children were injured in the Madrid district of Leganes when a bouncy castle on which they were playing was blown over by a gust of wind. Police report that it appears the castle was not anchored to the floor. The children, aged between three and eight, were playing on the five-metre-tall castle within the Parquesur Shopping Centre at around 5pm. The emergency services reported that two of the children ended up on the roof of an eight-metre building near the shopping centre. One four-year-old was trapped inside the castle and sustained the worst injuries, mainly to the chest. Two of the others sustained fractures and other injuries, and the third had face injuries.

A new store for Vialia SUPERMARKET chain Mercadona has announced it plans to open a new store within the Vialia shopping centre at Malaga Maria Zambrano train station. The exact date is not known, but the bowling alley in the complex is

reportedly going to close this summer, and the 3,000m2 premises will be taken over by Mercadona. This could mean the supermarket may not open until next year. Valencia-based chain Mercadona has 88 stores in Malaga Province.

Further twists in Noos case A COURT in Palma de Mallorca has requested more information on the illegal recording of Spain’s Princess Cristina’s court appearance in February in the Noos case. A Malaga lawyer is suspected of leaking the video of the princess’s statement in court, a claim which he denies. The request has been made to the police forensics team in Madrid and aims to discover how the recording was taken. The objective now is to compare existing data with his arguments. He also said there were numerous errors and contradictions in a previous report from the police. Experts from Malaga University have said that the images have been tampered with. The princess’s husband, the Duke of Palma, could face between 10 and 19 years in prison for embezzlement, corruption, document falsification, fraud against the administration and tax evasion. In court, Princess Cristina claimed she did not know of the activities of Aizoon, the company created allegedly to hide the €6 million of public funds illegally obtained through the Noos Institute, despite owning half of the company.

The Charity Around 3,600 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK: 1,600 children and 2,000 teenagers and young adults. The types of cancer affecting children are quite different from the cancers that affect teenagers and young adults. Thanks to investment in research and treatment, survival has increased dramatically over the past 50 years and more than threequarters of young cancer patients can be successfully treated. Children with Cancer UK want to help more children with cancer across the UK, and invest millions of pounds every year in essential research and campaigns to save young lives. They fund essential research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer. They help families; they fund welfare projects to provide better care for children with cancer and their families. They raise awareness of childhood cancer to protect children and improve the lives of young cancer patients. They campaign to raise awareness of issues relating to children with or at risk of developing cancer. And, of course, they raise money to help with all of their projects. The charity relies entirely on donations and this is why Sandro Morelli and the staff at Villa Tiberio are so passionate about their Special Summer Party on 7pm Sunday, June 8. They have invested their time and energy into offering everyone a spectacular evening, a chance to rub shoulders with celebrities, eat fine food and drink exceptional wine, all in aid of raising money for the charity.

The Celebrities Villa Tiberio is proud to announce that the popular actor of Holby City and Beverly Hills 90210 fame, Neil Roberts, will be the Master of Ceremonies. He has played numerous roles on either side of the Atlantic both on the West End stage, television and in

films; he played the lead opposite David Hasselhoff in the film Nick Fury based on the Marvel comics. Having such an accredited actor as the MC for this event can only enhance the cachet of the proceedings. Former chat show host, comedian and singer Des O’Connor, CBE, will also be present at the event. Most recently known for presenting the Channel 4 game show Countdown, he has recorded 36 albums and has had four Top 10 singles, including a number one hit with I Pretend, with global sales of more than 10 million records. O’Connor has starred in a mainstream television show in almost every year since 1963. He will be speaking during the event, and could possibly be persuaded to sing a tune or two. Whatever he does to help raise funds for the evening, this muchloved celebrity will be very warmly welcomed by the guests.

Renowned Jazz singer Mitch Winehouse will be singing for his supper during the evening, stopping off from touring New York and London with his band. The Special Summer Party is close to his heart; he is a founder of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up after the tragic early death of his daughter. He is committed to helping young people under the influence of drugs, the homeless and the disadvantaged, reasons he believes so implicitly in raising money for Children with Cancer UK: “The Winehouse family are proud to support the Children with Cancer UK charity. Please dig deep to support these wonderful children,” he said.

The Guests Sando and his staff are delighted that Mayor of Marbella Angeles Munoz and her husband as well as some extra special surprise guests will be attending.

The Talent

Julie Atherton Adding a touch of glamour to the night will be West End actress Julie Atherton. Recently ending a run as Sophie in Mamma Mia!, you will recognise her from her television appearances in the Royal Variety Performance filmed at the Coliseum, Children in Need and the Paul O’Grady Show.

Zoe Louise always wanted to be a performer and she has built up a name for herself here on the Costa del Sol, performing regularly at top venues. ‘Respect - The Divas’ is the ultimate dedication to the greatest divas of all time. These three amazing voices will wow you with their renditions of Whitney Houston, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, and every other diva you can think of! Zoe came up with the idea of a Divas group after seeing a West End show dedicated to the divas, with all the songs we know and love. She

called upon her first singing teacher Mandy Gregan and fellow Reality Star winner Jade Williamson to create Respect. Their mixture of great vocals and tight harmonies make for a spectacular show. Zoe is a regular feature at Villa Tiberio: “It’s amazing to see the amount of money they raise each year. What could be better than an evening of entertainment at the best restaurant in Marbella whilst raising money for this wonderful charity?” she said.

8 years to get to trial THE Supreme Court has reduced the sentence of a man who raped his niece by two-and-a-half years due to the delays in the case. The man raped his niece almost every weekend between 2001 and 2005.

The investigation was not complex, the Supreme Court ruled, and should not have taken so long. The sentence has now been reduced from the eight years and six months given by Barcelona Provincial Court to six years.

ORLD VISION is the world’s largest international children’s charity, helping millions of children in some of the world’s hardest places who live in the shadow of hunger, disease, violence and exploitation. Friday May 23 saw the World Vision Spring Gala and Musical at Puente Romano, an evening of fine dining and good wine with spectacular entertainment from Alison Limerick, the 90s’ hit music star, alongside local talent from D&Co, Peet Rothwell’s tribute to Michael Bublé, and the Bluze Bruthers Band singing the music of The Commitments. In addition, Marbella Dress Company treated the audience to a mini fashion show – all to raise funds for the charity. The evening was a spectacular success with representatives from World Vision UK and Spain in attendance. Matthew Neville from the

Peet Rothwell UK was stunned by the reception they received: “I loved the evening, it was just absolutely fantastic. Being in that environment at the Puente Romano as opposed to my recent visit to Bangladesh where I shared a room with 50 or so cockroaches and had a tap for a shower, the night was amazing. The staff were brilliant, the people we met were really lovely, the support was incredible. “We are so grateful for Puente Romano’s owner Daniel Shamoon’s support. He believes passionately in what we are doing and he is making a massive difference personally. We really appreciate his help. “And, of course, we couldn’t have done it without the help and support of Euro Weekly News, so thank you to everyone there too.” Jonathon Moulding,

also from World Vision UK, added: “It was a fantastic opportunity to meet people and tell them about the work we do. It gives them a chance to connect with what we do.” Incredibly the evening raised an extraordinary €60,000, which included a €40,000 donation from Daniel Shamoon, for World Vision, and €20,000 from raffles and private donations, which will make a massive difference to the work World Vision do.

Clampdown on underage smoking POLICE in the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Formentera will, from tomorrow (Friday), confiscate cigarettes found on children under 18. Smoking in the street or simply carrying tobacco will be considered a clandestine activity for under 18s and their cigarettes, lighters, papers and any other items for smoking will be confiscated. Parents and local councils support the plan to adhere to Article 60 of the Balearic Minors’ Law, which says that the police can intervene in situations which put children’s health at risk. Disciplinary proceedings will be opened against children who are caught, but once their parents are informed, they will have 15 days to collect the seized items.

Putin in Spain for ‘detox spa’ stay RUSSIAN president Vladimir Putin has reportedly recently enjoyed a break in sunny Spain. Putin is said to have headed to a ‘detox spa’ in Spain in order to unwind after recent trials and tribulations as the leader of Russia. Putin took time out from his busy schedule to relax at the Sha Wellness Clinic near Alicante. Sha Wellness Clinic, which features 93 suites set in Zen gardens complete with swimming pools and waterfalls, is a celebrity favourite. Supermodel Naomi Campbell, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and pop sensation Kylie Minogue are said to be huge fans of the luxury health spa, which was voted seventh best spa in the world by Conde Nast readers in 2010. And the spa promises a certain level of exclusivity too. A one-night stay in its Royal Suite, which has a heliport service and private

Locals scared by snake RESIDENTS in Naron, La Coruña, are in a state of panic after a woman was bitten on the backside by a snake in the toilet. In A Solaina district residents are reportedly putting litres of bleach down the toilets. The victim, a 30-year-old mother-of-two, said that she heard a loud splashing noise and then felt the bite. When she jumped up, she saw a large yellow and green snake going back down the toilet. She was admitted to the A&E of a local hospital where she was given vaccinations and corticoids. Local Police have been searching for the snake and closed the toilets at a preschool on the ground floor of the building. They are also looking for the owner of the snake, whom they suspect lives in the same building.

Spanish Police Force’s operations protocols explained in detail MOST people are aware that a European Arrest Warrant (EAW) is an arrest warrant valid throughout all member states of the European Union. Once issued, it requires another member state to arrest and transfer a criminal suspect or sentenced person to the issuing state so that the person can be put on trial or complete a detention period. Spain, being part of the EU, is no exception when applying foreign EAWs in all its territory. But there are other types of warrants that are largely unknown and yet are used by Spanish Police Forces regularly. This is the list they use, with the associated protocol code: Code 1/ Ascertainment of Domicile and Whereabouts: applied

when a person is being sought after to notify them, officially, of impending legal action. This warrant can mature and become an arrest warrant. Code 2/ Search, Arrest and Attendance: applied when a person has allegedly committed a serious offence or a defendant has not turned up when requested to do so, either by the Police or the Courts. It is commonly known as ‘arrest warrant.’ Code 3/ Search, Arrest and Imprisonment: applied when a person

has been convicted but later absconds. Code 4/ Prohibition to leave the country: applied to persons that are subject to legal action or minors, where there is risk of parental child

abduction. Code 5/ Prohibition to enter the country: applied to non-EU citizens that have an entry ban. Code 6/ Protection of a person: applied to people under 18 years of age or incapables. Code 7/ Specific surveillance: applied to people that have a residence ban in a specific area, or are being investigated, and it includes verifying the origin, destination,

itinerary, belongings, habitual domicile and identity documentation. Code 8/ Discreet surveillance: without attracting attention, gather as much evidence on the suspect (as above). Code 9/ Search and Arrest for Extradition: commonly carried out in cooperation with the Interpol Service or the ‘Sirene Office.’ The arrested person is take to Court who will decide on the merits of the case.

Spain’s PP beats Socialists in EU elections OVER recent days some 400 million citizens across the European Union’s 28 member states had the chance to elect a new European Parliament. Sunday saw Spain’s ruling Popular Party government defeat the main opposition Socialist Party in a close competition for EU Parliament seats. Both main parties lost ground to smaller parties who took the opportunity to capitalise in the elections after years of civil discontent due to high unemployment, corruption and harsh austerity policies championed by EU leaders. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s PP, which swept to power in late 2011 with an absolute majority, took 26 per cent of the votes, down from 44 per cent in the general election. The conservative PP took 16 of Spain’s 54 seats, with 14 seats going to the PSOE. In 2009 the Socialist Party took 29 per cent of the votes, but this year this had dropped to 23 per cent. Both mainstream parties suffered in these

recent elections. In 2009, the parties took a combined figure of 47 seats. This year their shared total fell from 80 per cent to 49 per cent. The parties lost a combined 17 European Parliament seats, leaving them with 30 out of Spain’s 54. They had been expected to lose about 10. Voter disenchantment following a deep economic crisis resulted in fragmentation, with eight smaller parties sharing the remaining 24 seats. This was a far bigger total than pre-election polling had predicted. Unlike voters in many EU countries, Spaniards rejected parties that favour cutting ties with the European Union.

CLASSIC CARS: Drivers will be presented with a 5km route.

Grand Prix changed THE Marbella Classic Grand Prix will not go ahead as planned on June 8 due to a number of technical issues. The organisers are still committed to bringing the event to Marbella, but have decided to postpone to November 2014 in order to ensure an event of the highest quality. A different event will take place on June 8, which is totally free for participants. Drivers have until Friday to confirm their attendance at this classic car show and demonstration day, being held to allow people to experience how a regularity rally works. The concept was not fully understood by some local car owners and spectators, therefore this event prepares everyone for the Grand Prix in November.

The event will be held by Antonio Banderas Square in Puerto Banus allowing classic car owners to drive a short route and experience a few timed exercises. Classic car owners and the general public are invited at 4pm to gather in Calle Jose Saramago. Drivers will be presented with a very simple road book for a 5km route which will start and finish in the square and will be timed according to the principles of the regularity rally. There will be a special stage requiring split second accuracy to demonstrate the different phases of the rally. Visitors can also visit the summer market in the square. For more information

A note from the


Political success and failure W

ITH Spanish political parties having come through a little the worse for wear after the EU elections it was no great surprise that Rubalcaba should have resigned after the extremely poor performance of the PSOE at the urns. It was the smaller, more recently emerged, parties which took the lead and capitalised on years of civil discontent, corruption, shockingly high unemployment figures and harsh austerity measures to take seats away from the ‘Big Two.’ Sunday’s biggest success story came from Spain’s new left-wing, antiausterity party ‘Podemos,’ which celebrated its wins only three months after its formation. Podemos (We Can) stunned national and international analysts and pollsters by winning 8 per cent of the vote and capturing a total of five seats. They accrued such an unexpected

amount of votes in large part thanks to the younger voters who turned out in stunningly large numbers to support them. But this is really no great surprise as Podemos has risen on a wave of anti-establishment feeling in the country which has been expressed mainly by the young, who are getting the roughest deal out of the recession. In some regions, including the capital, Podemos has emerged as the third largest political force after the ruling PP and the PSOE. All the polls taken before the vote suggested that the new party would struggle to earn more than one seat. This new shooting star of the political scene, headed up by the charismatic 35-year-old Pablo Iglesias, could even harness the disenfranchised ‘Indignados’ (Outraged), who are clearly looking for a leader and some political weight behind them. We can only hope.

Hard time for soft fruit SPAIN has always been the EU’s main producer and exporter of strawberries, producing an annual 300,000 tons. Ninety-six per cent of the 7,000 hectares given to strawberry growing are located in Huelva, but the last two years have been negative for producers. Not only did the fruit fetch low prices but the UK, France, Germany and Italy are beginning to grow their own in more modern installations.

Germany now grows 150,000 tons of strawberries a year, while Poland is currently producing an annual 170,000 tons. Holland and France are also growing more, over 50,000 tons each. Spanish strawberry growers are now exploring other avenues and are beginning to grow soft fruit like raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. These produce smaller crops but sell at a better price.

Desert AVE must keep within budget IN 2011 a Spanish consortium won a €6.736 billion contract for the Medina-Mecca AVE high speed train. The contract, which requires the line to be finished in December 2016 and functioning by January 2017, includes penalties for late delivery. There is also a 10 per cent margin on the stipulated price but no more. “The Saudis want the best at the cheapest price,” consortium sources told Spanish daily El Pais. One of the 10 people arrested for the Spanish AVE scandal in Spain was in Saudi Arabia working on the desert AVE when the story broke, the same sources revealed. He has since been suspended from duty. There have been no Saudi comments on the scandal, the sources said. “Neither were they worried when Sacyr had problems in Panama. But they were worried when Spain was on the brink of a bailout and the bond yield had soared.” So far the Spanish have completed 185 of the planned 450 kms. “We are not alone,” the consortium’s president told an El Pais interviewer. This was an oblique reference to China which has the task of building the infrastructure and delivers “late and badly” according to the consortium. The first AVE will be making test journeys by early 2015, it promised confidently, aware prompt delivery will ensure more contracts from Saudi Arabia’s €100 billion infrastructure budget.

Employ a salesman for free Talking shop Mike Walsh Mike Walsh was for 20 years Regional Assessment Manager for the Guild of Master Craftsmen, Britain’s biggest quality assurance body for businesses. • 966 786 932

GOOD salesmen are worth their weight in gold. My first lesson was when our new sales manager paused at the factory’s workshop where we could see employees hard at work. He smiled: “When you stop selling they’re out of a job.” Many businesses function through their sales team. I recall a services supplier that, by mailed inducements, converted only 1 / 100 leads. Changing strategy they gave the leads to a newly recruited sales team. The cost of the sales force did not add to its overheads. It simply upped the prices and converted the difference into commission and administration costs. The conversion rate shot up to 1 / 3.

SALESPEOPLE: The backbone of any company. Chatting with a loft conversion specialist he told me he personally followed up customer enquiries. He would visit clients after work or during weekends. This approach comes with the territory for homebased tradesmen.

My client was a craftsman but his people skills were not strong. He disliked selling when all he wanted was to be with his wife and kids. My suggestion he engage a salesman was dismissed out of hand. He wasn’t making enough profit to

feed another’s man’s family. I explained that employing a representative would not cost him a penny. He should increase his prices by 20 per cent and offer a salesperson 15 per cent commission. His prices would still be competitive. He could then have his weekends and evenings free. His face lit up and by the time I was leaving he was making plans to advertise for a salesman. Many companies employ commission-based salesmen yet despite higher prices they are more successful than the self-employed sector. Good salesmen first sell themselves; instilling confidence they are their company’s ambassadors. They listen and understand the client’s needs. Explaining their service without jargon, they sell benefits, professionally close and scratch the pad. If you are personable and have genuine concern for client’s needs you will spend your working life making people happy, looking after your family and keep others employed. Mission accomplished.

More evictions than ever

VODAFONE ESPAÑA: Profits were reduced by 58.9 per cent.

Vodafone España profit down but they are still confident VODAFONE’S Spanish turnover dropped by 11 per cent during the 20132014 tax year. This made it the British group’s worst-performing subsidiary, with a 25.7 per cent fall in earnings before tax, depreciation and amortisation. Once all these factors were taken into account, Vodafone España’s profits

were reduced by 58.9 per cent. Spain’s economic situation, the slow recovery in consumer spending, competition from rivals and lower connection charges have all eaten into the group’s profits. Despite this discouraging result, Vodafone’s confidence in Spain remains intact.

Last year it invested €608 million, 32.3 per cent more than in 2012, destined for its new fibre optic network which by last March had been installed in 276,000 homes. The 4G mobile network was rolled out in all Spanish provinces and the company also spent €7.2 billion on acquiring the Ono cable operator.

BANKS granted 28,583 mortgages in the first three months of this year. The 48.3 per cent quarter-on-quarter increase is the ‘up’ side of the see-saw. Down at the other end are the 49,600 families who lost their homes last year, an 11 per cent increase on 2012. Despite a new law alleviating the situation of householders unable to meet mortgage payments, 38,961 families lost their principal residence to the banks in 2013. Nor did the law increase the number of negotiated surrenders although this was one of the new law’s specific aims. Agreements between the banks and defaulters fell by 9.1 per cent to 17,907 according to the Bank of Spain. These represented 46 per cent of repossessions compared with 50 per cent in 2012. The remaining 21,054 properties reclaimed through the courts were empty when repossessed except in 1,688 cases of principal homes and 392 relating to other properties. The police intervened during 147 evictions, more than 50 per cent fewer than in 2012. The AEB bank association emphasised its willingness to negotiate despite the 5.67 per cent increase in mortgage default. As evictions represented only 0.77 per cent of all mortgages, the AEB said, this indicates that a solution was found for defaulters in approximately 5 per cent of cases. There is no motive for optimism, the PAH antieviction platform argued. “These are alarming figures without comparison anywhere in the EU,” said spokeswoman Lucia Martin.

Cleaning up at our expense LOOK around. Everywhere the eye can see there are people glued to their mobile phones probably sending irrelevant messages or harping on about nonsense. All this mobile addiction is making communications companies a fortune, while on the other hand consumers are falling further and further into debt. Twenty years ago hardly anyone had a mobile phone and now all of a sudden we can’t take our eyes off the things. And they are not cheap too. A decent Smartphone costs about €500 and if you buy it bound to a contract, then you pay a hell of a lot more over the two years or so the phone company has you as their prisoner. Yes, it is great to call friends, check emails and log into social networking sites, but apart from

Phone-in UNDER an agreement signed between Telefonica and insurers Muta Madrileña, the Spanish multinational group will provide the company’s telecommunications for the next four years.

SMART PHONES: Cut off direct communication. perhaps a small minority of mobile phone owners, most of our livelihoods do not depend on being constantly online, rather we waste a lot of time staring at a screen when we could be putting that time to better use. With this obsessive mobile phone use we are creating and encouraging a culture of distraction where we are increasingly disconnected from the people and events around us. More and more people inhibit real human connection by prioritising


silly games or message beeps from our phones over the people right in front of us. Perhaps it’s too late for us adults, but one way we can save some money and perhaps the creativity of our children is to not buy young kids mobile phones. Currently an investigation has begun in the UK looking into whether

mobile phones and other wireless technologies affect children’s mental development. The study plans to follow 2,500 11 and 12year-olds and take a look at their cognitive ability thinking skills, memory and attention - and then repeat the tests in 2017. The researchers say “very little” is known about what impact these

Now it has come to light our swimming pool Law in Spain has no licence. Further, the water supply for By David Searl the Community irrigation and swimming pool has no contract with the water company. There is a court case against the developer. The Estepona court has ruled against us so the Community has appealed and awaits the results. Costs so far include a fine of €18,000 from the water company, a requirement to install separate metered supplies at a cost of €8,000, an estimate of nearly €20,000 for works to obtain the swimming pool licence and an obligation to pay nearly €30,000 in costs should our court appeal fail. The President has requested funds which have been paid. The Administrator and the President were aware of these problems but did not tell my solicitor. Comments? R.L. (Costa del Sol) A. What a mess. Your lawyer did not check the Community’s finances, which is poor practice but does not constitute an actionable fault. Perhaps no one asked your President so he did not volunteer the information. In my book, You and the Law in Spain, I urge buyers to obtain a copy of the most recent minutes of the AGM, where these problems will appear.

CATALUÑA: Received 3.9 million visitors in total.

Tourism up in April by 13.2% ALMOST 5.3 million foreign tourists visited Spain in April, 13.2 per cent more than the same month last year, according to the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism. This was mainly thanks to the boost at Easter, as well as the fact that tourists are avoiding going to certain traditional destinations such as Greece, Egypt, Israel, Jordan and others. Over the first four months of the year, the number of tourists from Germany has increased by 11.3 per cent (2.51 million), there have been 10.9 per cent more French tourists (2.52 million), 6.5 per

cent more from the UK (3.1 million) and 13 per cent more from Italy (0.87 million). However, the number of tourists from Portugal fell by 3 per cent and US tourists by 9.5 per cent. The region with the highest number of visitors, with more than four million, was the Canary Islands, 13.1 per cent more; followed by Cataluña, with 3.9 million in total (10.4 per cent more). In Andalucia, there were 10 per cent more visitors (2.02 million), while numbers fell in the Balearic Islands by 6.8 per cent to 1.1 million.

Qatar state purchases luxury InterContinental hotel in Madrid KATARA HOSPITALITY, a hotel society controlled mainly with the funds of the Qatari state, is to purchase the InterContinental Hotel in Madrid. This is the third five-star hotel

in Spain to be purchased by Qatar in a year, having previously invested in premises in Barcelona. Katara Hospitality has informed the EU Commission of its intention to buy Danube,

another society belonging to Qatari Ghanin Bin Saad Al Saad, with British group InterContinental, the world’s largest hotel chain. Danube has five hotels operated by InterContinental

located in Amsterdam, Rome, Frankfurt, Cannes and Madrid, the latter worth €70 million. In 2011, these hotels were purchased from Morgan Stanley by Lebanese investor Toufic Aboukhater for €450 million, to

Balearic Islands lead the way for high price tag property sales to foreign investors in Spain OFFICIAL figures from the Land Registry show that in 2013 the Balearics had the highest number of property sales to foreign investors in Spain. The region also saw the highest number of sales over €500,000. Daniel Chavarria Waschke, Managing Director of Balearics Sotheby’s International Realty, explained: “In 2013, some 30.73 per cent of house sales in the Balearics were attributed to foreigners, significantly higher than say Andalucia at 12.35 per cent or Cataluña at 11.54 per cent. Meanwhile, 14.34 per cent of those sales to overseas

buyers were for properties over half a million euros. It’s a pleasure to be conducting business here.” British, Russian, Swiss, Scandinavian and, to a lesser extent, Germans, were the main nationalities represented in the Balearic property market in 2013. In fact, 83.4 per cent of foreign purchases came from within the EU, with the remaining 16.52 per cent from non-EU countries, with Russia leading. The areas of most interest are all within Mallorca, namely Port Andratx in the south west, Deia and Port Soller in the west,

Spanish real estate fair in Paris THE Spanish Real Estate and Tourism Fair in Paris will be held from September 19 to 21. It has been organised by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in France (Cocef), CIC Iberbanco (a branch of the Credit Mutuel group) and Expo 21, an expert in such events. Real estate promoters, tourist offices, advisors, travel agencies and airlines, amongst others, have shown interest in taking part in the fair which is hoped to boost both property sales and tourism in Spain. Seventy companies are expected to take part. Spanish businesses will be able to present their products to the French market, which is currently one of the most important in Spain, and there will be a variety of quality offers and guarantees which buyers wouldn’t normally find. According to Cocef, Spain is a popular destination for second homes amongst the French, who are the second market in Spain for properties purchased. Businesses at the fair can be seen by more than 12 million people and visitors will receive expert advice to help them select the best destination for their needs. Buyers can also organise loans at the fair, which is aimed at people who already know Spain, as well as investors looking to put their money in a country with excellent safety levels and legal guarantees. The fair will also include conferences and seminars on the tax and financial benefits in Spain.

Pollensa in the north and Arta and Capdepera in the east. “Put simply, the Balearics are a wonderful place to own a home”, said Daniel. “Building regulations have been tight for years, a large chunk of the land is construction-free or UNESCO-protected such as Mallorca’s Sierra Tramuntana, Ibiza’s High Town and the Island of Formentera, and we have 26 golf courses, the most Blue Flag beaches and marinas in Spain, amazing cuisine and culture, and incredible scenery characterised by high mountain ranges and turquoise seas.”

then change hands again in 2012, when they were bought by Al Saad, a former executive of two real estate groups managed by the Qatari state. Last year, it was on the market again, and is now only awaiting the go-ahead from the EU commission. The InterContinental is one of Madrid’s main luxury hotels, together with the Ritz, the Palace and the Villa Magna. Located in Paseo de la Castellana, it has 302 rooms and was Madrid’s first international hotel when it opened in 1953. It was run by Hilton for 20 years and became a favourite with Hollywood stars. It has been managed by InterContinental since 1973. Despite making €19.75 million in 2012, it had a net loss of €1.17 million, almost double the previous year and the third year running of losses.

Canadian investors pay €140m for Castellana 200 complex THE Castellana 200 complex in Madrid has been sold for €140 million. The buyers are PSP Investments, one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers, and Drago Capital a property investment and management company which currently manages €2.8 billion in assets on the Iberian Peninsula. PSP invest funds for the pension plans of the Public Service, the Canadian Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Reserve Force, and manages $79.8 billion in assets. Together they have already purchased three buildings in 2011, two in Madrid and another in Barcelona. The agreement they signed that year will see a total investment of €400

million in Spain in total. The Castellana 200 complex, built in 2011, has two office buildings, one with total surfaces amounting to 5,155 square metres and the other 15,137 square metres. It also has a 6,500square-metre commercial area with a selection of top brands. There is an 18,000square-metre plot still pending construction which can be used for a variety of purposes, and 844 parking spaces. There are also plans for a Grand Luxury five-star hotel, with 136 rooms, auditorium, spa, gym, pool and restaurants. MADRID: The complex has two office buildings, and a commercial area.

Holiday rentals now more popular amongst Spaniards HOLIDAY rentals are becoming more popular in Spain. In 2013, according to TripAdvisor, there were 26 per cent more Spaniards interested in renting a place for their holidays than there were in 2011. Although most of those who opt for holiday rentals are foreigners, there is reportedly an increasing number of Spaniards who are finding the option more interesting; mainly because of how much money they can save. This year, the Spanish are expected to spend an average €1,723 on their summer holidays, of which 30 per cent will be go on accommodation alone. Other reasons given for choosing to rent are independence, space and flexibility, especially for families with children and groups, and the possibility of having pets on holiday too. Those who decide to rent out their property for the summer reportedly come under three categories.

The third group rent out their habitual residence in the summer because they have decided to go elsewhere, often inland, for a couple of months. Experts recommend specialist websites to find the best, most

transparent offers, especially as they normally have reviews from other visitors. Since 2010, Spain has also seen more people house swapping, a cheaper and more sociable option for finding somewhere to stay. An even more extreme variation is ‘couchsurfing’, which involves staying for free in someone’s home, ideal for those with a low budget looking to make friends.

The Spanish government is sitting on thousands of unwanted properties THE Spanish government has only sold 10 per cent of the property assets it put on the market in 2013. A year ago the government launched the so-called Programme for the Enhancement of State Real Estate Assets in order to transfer 15,135 properties before 2015. So far, only 1,600 houses and plots have found new owners. The government gave no idea of the nature or the value of the assets on the market, and there is no exact idea of how much money may have been obtained. The available properties can be seen on websites for the Defence Ministry Institute of Housing, Infrastructure and Equipment (Invied), the State Society for Management of Property Assets, railway administrator Adif, and postal service

STANDING EMPTY: Buildings big and small throughout Spain.

Correos, amongst others. Properties still available include the building which formerly housed the national

radio and TV station RTVE in Paseo de La Habana, Madrid, which has 2,100 square metres.

Another is a 3,000-squaremetre property in Calle Barquillo which was purchased in 2008 by the

National Energy Commission for €19 million with plans to expand. However, it was never used and now is reportedly worth €8.1 million. However, not all of the properties are huge buildings, as there are garages in Estepona, rural properties in Ciudad Real, and even a munitions dump in Palencia. More than 15,000 of the inventory of 50,000 properties stand empty and the state has to pay rent on 9 per cent of them. The Tax Ministry has given orders to speed up the auctions and sales of these properties, as reports suggest that the buyers are out there, but the government is taking its time to make them available.

When the chips are down I RECENTLY lost my cat. I went to the vet and asked if he would amend the information on the cat’s chip to say he had been lost. I then asked if a vet would check to see if a chip and the person’s particulars were one and the same when an animal was taken in for treatment. He said: “No, probably not.” So why should I go to the trouble and expense of having a chip put into my animal in the first place? Is it only on the off-chance and the very unlikely event of a dog or cat being picked up and taken to an animal rescue centre? Veterinary care isn’t cheap so why can’t they do this little thing? It would take minutes to run a machine over the animal and could reunite a person with their much-loved pet. For the life of me I cannot understand why they don’t do this. I suppose it’s because they are not trained to do so. People don’t seem able to think for themselves. The nanny state the world over. Or is it the same old story that we constantly seem to be hearing in Spain: when the euro comes in through the door, then honesty goes out the window? Sheila, Estepona (Malaga)

Fine situation ALMOST a year ago, Marbella set up the ‘foto-grua’ service, an initiative consisting of private towtruck operators taking photos of vehicles that in their opinion break parking laws. Images are sent electronically to the Local Police, following which immediate removal of the vehicle takes place. After months of operations, officers from the Local Police have voiced concerns over how the project seems to have turned into a money-making scheme, particularly in certain areas of Marbella and Puerto Banus.

I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He said to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes which I did. He said that in Vietnam, this guy was on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out. Well, it not only put the fire out but he never even had a blister! So, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 minutes and then pulled it out. There was no red mark or a blister and absolutely no pain. Now I keep a bag of flour in the fridge, as cold flour feels even better than room-temperature flour. Don’t run your burn area under cold water first, just put it right into the flour for 10 minutes and experience a miracle! The Mallorca Crew (Bert, Marie, Pepi, Miss Aube and Fran)

Take it easy WITH reference to the article on speeding, in the UK it has always been the case that anyone exceeding the speed limit even by 1mph was liable to be prosecuted. I believe it has always been the same in Spain too. I suspect that the practice of not reporting drivers for small infringements will probably continue as before. But note: breaking the law even by a little is still breaking the law. However, as speedometers which are not accurate - will in almost all cases read higher than the actual speed you are doing, responsible drivers have nothing to fear.

UKIP puts main parties on the run I SN’T it interesting to note that a couple of years ago, the only column where you saw the initials UKIP mentioned was this ole boy’s scribble and these days it’s difficult to find a column that excludes them!? Don’t forget you read it here first, folks! Remember all the sneers and derogatory flack I took for it as well? Ha! I also recall the lady some years ago who, after my warnings about conflict with Islam extremists, wrote: “Oh come on, Leapy, what war!?” Haven’t heard much from that particular source for some time, either. Lovely to see the hierarchy of the major parties wriggling liked hooked minnows in the light of UKIP’s recent successes. Most of those interviewed have been asked the same question: “How are you going to deal with this threat from Farage’s party?” With slight variations they have all given exactly the same answer:



“Well, we’re going to have to listen to the public and take the appropriate action to comply with their wishes.” Er, but I thought that’s what politicians were always supposed to do! Well of course they are, but they don’t, do they? It’s not until something really rattles these arrogant out-of-touch con artists’ cocoons that they start taking any notice of Joe Public at all. Well, the Farage team has certainly done that. The frightening thing is it’s all so simple. With UKIP’s almost nonexistent policies on most other issues (despite the irate gentleman who reeled off a whole rather unconvincing list to me!) the party has gained all its ground on two fronts only: Immigration and the EU.

RATTLING CAGES: Nigel Farage’s UKIP. The British public is simply fed up. Fed up with the amount of foreigners flooding the country, fed up with Brussels and its nonsensical ’uman rights’, PC and ludicrous rules and regulations, fed up with

being taken for mugs and fed up with losing their proud British identity. UKIP will never gain enough power to bring about the kind of changes needed (not for the moment, anyway) but are a

wonderful sounding-board for the British voters to bounce off and reverberate along the musty, self-satisfied, arrogant and complacent corridors of those who can. Meanwhile, I’ve got the answer to all the problems involving the biased BBC – sack ‘em all and start over. This latest gem really takes the whole tin. They edited the word ‘girl’ from a remark made by a sports commentator because they considered it ‘sexist’. You simply couldn’t make it up. What description of Homo sapiens would they consider acceptable? All of us wearing grey ‘onesies’ and being referred to as ‘its’? British Broadcasting Corporation? More like Bumbling Biased Cretins. Sometimes I really do despair of it all. Chins up, summer’s here. Now all we need are some holidaymakers! Keep the faith Love Leapy

Barely Legal Drivers (Documentary, 2013) BBC 3 from 9:00pm to 10:00pm Series in which young drivers take to the road in the family car, unaware that their parents are watching every manoeuvre through state-of-the-art cameras placed in the cars. Zahra from Leicester is used to her twin sister Fahra and her mum bailing her out. Now she's preparing to move to Manchester. Driving could be the acid test that proves to her mum the time has come to let go, but Zahra is no natural born talent on the road. In London, Renaldo has just started his first year at uni and has thrown himself into the nightlife. But his mum Nadine raised him as a strict Christian and phones to ensure he is getting himself to church. Over a week, Zahra and Renaldo make three road trips, unaware that their parents are secretly scrutinising their driving, as are former traffic cop Judith Roberts and top driving instructor John Lepine. At the end of the three drives, Judith alone decides whether they are ready to be trusted with their own car or sent back to driving school for a refresher.

EastEnders (Soap, 1985) BBC 3 from 11:30pm to 12:00am EastEnders is the BBC's longrunning prime time soap opera set in fictional borough of Walford in the East End of London. The show is based around an extended and often overlapping network of families and friends who live out the many dramas and tragedies that life throws at them around the show's central location - Albert Square. Created in 1983 by the Z-Cars writers and producers Tony Holland and Julia Smith, the show often features gritty story lines about difficult subjects with an emphasis on the working classes. These story lines often feature a way to dramatise contemporary social issues such as homelessness, religious tensions, discrimination, drugs or crime, among many others. As befits a soap, the show also interweaves stories about dysfunctional families, relationship breakdowns, extra-marital affairs, births, marriages and deaths.

NDOOR cats now live an average of 15 years, and it is not uncommon to see cats 18 to 20 years of age. The domestic cat in the wild (sometimes called a feral cat) has a shorter life expectancy, about six years. Accidents, diseases, parasites, the trials of securing food, and the stresses of multiple and frequent pregnancies all contribute to this shortened life. The city cat fares somewhat better, but still contends with

OLDER CATS: Fare better if well cared for throughout their life. infectious diseases, accidents and fights due to their behaviour. The indoor pet, being well nourished, vaccinated against infectious diseases, and protected from accidents, fares the best. Of greatest importance is the care the cat has received throughout its life. Well-cared-for pets

suffer fewer infirmities as they grow older. But when sickness, illness, or injury is neglected, the aging process is accelerated. Cats can get a variety of intestinal parasites, including some commonly referred to as ‘worms’. Infestations of intestinal worms can cause a variety of symptoms. Sometimes

cats demonstrate few or no outward signs of infection, and the infestation can go undetected despite being a potentially serious health problem. Some feline parasitic worms are hazards for human health as well. For your local radio log onto www.talkradio

Animals in Distress need your help ANIMALS IN DISTRESS (A.I.D.) is a small animal charity officially registered in 2008. They are based in Coin, Malaga and are registered in Andalucía, Spain Nº 07974 and also with the Government Tax office CIF, Nº G92937002. They rescue and find forever homes for stray, abused, abandoned animals and due to perseverance over these last few years they have made some fabulous contacts and, by networking, they are finding forever homes for about 300 animals per year, the majority being dogs. This year it’s been mainly about pups, which are abandoned once the mum has finished weaning them and then dumped in rubbish containers or left in a cardboard box e.g. outside someone’s house. They also have their share of adult dogs, some arrive in a very bad condition and require urgent and expensive operations and aftercare, which they provide in their home or their kind foster homes until a forever home can be found. Some of these

QUILLA: Abandoned in rubbish container.

BUBU: Needs a forever home.

animals are old, lame and so on and will never be homed, so they become long time residents with them. All of the above is a drain on their small charity, which currently has a very large vet bill every single month of the year. Their charity shop simply cannot cope with all the bills, so in order to help them and also many

more they need donations, even if it’s only a small amount, it can pay for an injection or worming tablets etc… They are a non-profit organisation and they do not take any wages and that means the bosses, as well as their wonderful shop volunteers, so 100 per cent goes towards helping the animals in one way or another.

Please help them so they can help even more animals! If you are local you can also help the animals by bringing items into their charity shop so they can sell them as well as attending their fund raising events which they hold throughout the year. If you wish to make a donation large or small it will be gratefully received, please go to this link: You can also help the animals by sponsoring one of their long term dogs for as little as €5 per month, which is only 0.16 cents per day (loose change really!). Please go to this link to sponsor a dog: Featured dogs: QUILLA was found abandoned by the rubbish container. She is well behaved around the house, does not bark a lot, she is obedient and gets on well with other dogs. She is very loveable. BUBU is a loyal and obedient girl. Due to her family having to return to their country with no money poor Bubu will be left behind. She needs a loving home.

Detox is a ‘waste of time and money’ A GROUP of scientists claim that detox diets are a waste of money and time. They have produced a book called Making Sense Of Chemical Stories , which claims that instead of subsisting on raw fruit and vegetables and shunning sugar and caffeine to cleanse the body of chemicals, all we need is a glass of water and a good night’s sleep. The guide says: “The process does not occur any more effectively as a result of taking ‘detox’ tablets, wearing ‘detox’ socks, having a ‘detox’ body wrap, eating nettle root extract, drinking herbal infusions, following a special ‘detox’ diet or using any of the other products and rituals that are

and said: “The body’s own detoxification systems are remarkably sophisticated and versatile. They have to be, as the natural environment that we evolved in is hostile.”


No health messages for healthy eating THE best way to get children to eat more healthily is to not tell them they are doing so, according to researchers at the University of Chicago. They found children aged three to five were less likely to eat foods when they were told the ingredients would make them stronger or cleverer because they believed the taste wouldn’t be as good. Therefore, they suggest parents and food manufacturers should not send messages to children about what they eat. Dr Michal Maimaran and Dr Ayelet Fishbach conducted tests with preschoolers in Illinois. They were read a story about a girl who ate Wheat

The children ate fewer crackers when served with a health message, and most associated healthy eating with ‘being strong,’ ‘good for you,’ ‘makes you grow’ and ‘gives energy.’

Are school summer holidays too long? As the school summer holidays approach in both Spain and the UK, the Euro Weekly News asks if the number of weeks children are on holiday over the summer is too long or is it not long enough?


AM Myler is from London, currently on holiday in Fuengirola (Malaga). Back home, she is a secondary school teacher who says that regardless of what students and parents prefer, she appreciates and needs the long break. “I don’t think most people understand that teaching is not a job where you just clock in and clock out at the end of the day,” Sam said. “Not only do you arrive very early in the morning, but you also take your homework home with you.” There are also difficult

STREET TALK parents and misbehaving children to manage, on top of the actual teaching and administrative duties. “Teaching today is a very tough vocation. I don’t think holidays are too long; I think good teachers earn every break they can get.” There was another vote given for the length of holidays not being too long, but for another reason. Anne Pringle, currently on holiday outside Malaga capital, says she disagrees that holidays are too long. She has two children aged seven and nine, and she loves having her kids at home all summer. “Having long ANDY COX: Long holidays are fine.

summers allows us to have plenty of time to reconnect as a family. The school year is so hectic. Summers allow us to not only go somewhere for a holiday away, but also to normalise our lives once we’re back. We need a long enough chance to disconnect from the norm and also to enjoy being home together before going back into the frantic pace of the school year with all the kids’ activities.” There were mixed views on the Costa Blanca regarding the length of the summer holidays. Rosalie Robinson, who is retired and lived in La Marina for 12 years said: “It is a long time. When my grandchildren went to school here I would look after them and my granddaughter actually missed school and her friends, but my grandson never particularly liked school so he enjoyed the long break.” Another of Rosalie’s grandchildren, Lauren, a health club manager on holiday visiting from the UK, said: “It's nearly 12 weeks and that is too long, but I think the UK’s six weeks is too short, eight weeks would be about right.” Her friend Danny, a window cleaner

added: “I wish I had that much of a long summer holiday when I was a kid, I hated school and did everything I could to get out of it.” Bar supervisor from La Marina, Andy Cox, who is a father of two, with a third due any day, is happy with the summer break: “I quite like it, it’s too hot for them to be at school, it can be hard for working parents but we are lucky, our child care is fine as I mainly work evenings and my wife works days.”

SEEING INTO THE FUTURE: Vanga’s predictions often came true.

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


F concerned about where our world is heading it would be well to take an interest in Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (Vanga) 1911-1996. At 12 years old she lost her sight in an accident. Vanga lived in Rupite, straddling the borders of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece, a place said to be a source of incredible cosmic energy. Her predictions began when, as a teenager, she helped her father find a stolen sheep by giving a detailed description of where it was hidden. Efforts to save her sight were fruitless but the youngster acquired a sixth sense, so simple jobs became routine. To amuse herself she played at being a ‘healer.’ Visitors arrived to hear

her predictions or cure them of ailments, but her powers really took shape after she turned 30. In January 1941, a phantom knight appeared and told her: “The world is on the threshold of disaster. Millions of people will die. You will stand here and prophesy. Do not be afraid. I’ll tell you what you should say.” It is claimed her famous visitors included Adolph Hitler who ‘departed a very sad man’. Five months later, with 170 Soviet

divisions poised to strike Germany from the East, the German leader pre-emptively struck Russia with disastrous consequences. Such were her powers that she spent time in a Soviet prison for predicting the Russian dictator’s death. She was right. In 1980, she prophesied: “In 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water and the world will weep.” It didn’t make sense as Kursk is a landlocked city in Russia. In

2000, the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk sank. Its crew of 118 perished before the eyes of an agonised world. In January 1988: “We are witnessing events of paramount significance. Two big leaders shake hands.” Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan were soon to do so, heralding the collapse of Communism. Later: “American brethren will fall after being attacked by the

The prophecies of Vanga steel bird. The wolves will howl in the bush, and innocent blood will flow.” In 2001, New York’s World Trade Centre collapsed after two commercial planes were flown into them. Was the term ‘bush’ connected to the name of the US president at the time? “Numerous catastrophes and disasters will shake the world. The mentality of the people will change. They will be divided by their faith.” Of her motherland, Vanga was more upbeat. One of her predictions was when permafrost thaws and floods come, nothing will survive on earth but Russia. The climate will change and Russia will occupy the best inhabitable zone. Russia is predicted to herald in world peace and flourish in the face of good fortune. Everything melts away like ice yet the glories of Vladimir, the glory of Russia, are the only things to remain. Russia will not only survive, it will dominate the world.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) The company is so interesting that you can hardly tear yourself away and new experiences are arriving every day. You could be forgiven for getting a little over-excited. When travel brings you face to face with a stranger, you find that a bit of information you hear has to be acted upon. CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Someone close gets a real stroke of luck this week and no doubt the benefits will rub off on you. It seems that some fortune will come your way by the end of the month and lead you to see a situation in quite a different light. Any travel should be left until the beginning of next month if possible because there are likely to be delays and irritations. LEO (July 24 - August 23) Someone you have been holding at arm's length recently is insisting on getting closer. Charm and tact alone may not save the day, but enlisting the help of a friend could. Travel and career are well-aspected and, if you are expecting a financial windfall, you may have a bit longer to wait. VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) The hard work you have been putting in recently has left you tired and, at times, quite tetchy. This week you will start to see the rewards of your efforts which will undoubtedly help you to keep up the momentum. There is a lot of both passion and travel this week, which is set to continue. LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) This is a highly sociable week, and you could meet some new faces that not only attract but inspire you. You are a social butterfly, and this brings out your Libran flutteriness. You will have to draw on all your powers of concentration to keep ahead of practical matters such as paperwork. SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) You dominate the scene this week and no one is in any doubt about what you are aiming for. If you want to impress someone new to your circle,

In the film, Captain America, the Black Widow and Sam Wilson join forces to uncover a conspiracy within S.H.I.E.L.D. while facing a mysterious assassin.

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK: This is a time fraught with financial pitfalls. All you need to do, however, is spend less and call in a few favours. Know that people want to help.

however, try a bit of cunning as opposed to brow-beating. SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Communication and selfexpression are what it's all about this week. Although you may feel that indulging yourself is in some ways selfish, you should realise that you are entitled to some fun. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) The call of romance is strong but so is that of your business life. The two will clash to the detriment of each other if you do not plan ahead and pace yourself. Do not be at the beck and call of others when you need all your time and energy for yourself.

TEN BIZARRE THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT DISNEY 1. Communal Underwear Disney controls every aspect of its parks’ operations and for years, this meant uniformity among employees who wear Goofy, Pluto, and Mickey Mouse suits. The actors had to wear company-issued underwear; however these undergarments were shared among performers. Employees began complaining that the underwear they were issued was filthy and smelly; there were cases of pubic lice and scabies being transmitted. In 2001, Disney agreed with the actors’ union, allowing them to take their own underwear home for washing.


2. Mickey Mouse The Drug Dealer In ‘Mickey Mouse and the Medicine Man,’ a mini-comic distributed in conjunction with General Mills Wheaties, Mickey and Goofy discover a new medicine called ‘Peppo,’ a thinly veiled reference to an amphetamine so powerful it has them crashing into the ceiling and running in circles. Mickey decides the drug is a perfect get-rich-quick scheme, and approaches Peppo’s manager about acquiring a distribution territory. 3. Homeless Employees Those earning Disney’s starting minimum wage of just $8.03 an hour ($16,702.40 a year before taxes) find paying for an apartment nearly impossible, leaving some employees homeless. Many Disney employees get by sharing cheap motel rooms on a week-by-week basis making it affordable, if several adults share the room though that breaks hotel occupancy rules. 4. Escape From Tomorrow Filmmaker Randy Moore’s project ‘Escape from Tomorrow’ was filmed in Walt Disney World - without permission. It follows the last day of a family’s Disney holiday, father Jim White receives a call notifying him that he has been laid off from his job. Moore filmed secretly and although Disney’s lawyers could have suppressed the film, they took no action, hoping to deny the film any further publicity.

Get to know your Chimp BOOKS

The Chimp paradox is a simple mind model. The purpose of it is to help people get a better grip on their emotional responses to things and to behave in ways that are more controlled. Professor Steve Peters introduces this theory and explains how we can use it to our advantage. The Chimp is an emotional machine that thinks

independently from us. It is not good or bad, it is just a Chimp. You are not responsible for the nature of your Chimp but you are responsible for managing it. One of the secrets of success and happiness is to learn to live with your Chimp and not get bitten or attacked by it. To do this, you need to understand how your Chimp

Miley ‘Hannah’ Cyrus. 5. Disney’s Housekeeper Thelma Howard was employed as a live-in housekeeper for the Disney family; she served them for 30 years. During her tenure, Walt Disney would give Thelma shares of stock in his company as holiday gifts. At the time, they were worth pennies, but over the years, they rose in value. Thelma retired in 1981 and died in June 1994. Her estate was worth over $9 million.

6. Character Protection Disney is protective of its brand and has gone to extraordinary lengths to preserve copyright. In 1989, three day-care centres in Florida had Disney characters painted on their walls, the company threatened legal retribution if they were not removed.

they found a picture taken during a 1980 Disney World holiday which showed fiveyear-old Donna posing with Mr. Smee, Captain Hook’s first mate. In the background, a man can be seen pushing a child in a buggy. The boy in the buggy was Alex. At the time, he and Donna weren’t even living in the same country - Alex was Canadian, Donna was from the US - and it would be another 15 years before they met. 9. Self-Destructing DVDs Disney invented the self-destructing Flexplay EZ-D DVDs, distributed by Disney through various convenience stores. The DVDs were sold in vacuum-sealed packages that, once opened, left the disc playable for 48 hours. After that, the playing surface would oxidize, and destroy the disc. 10. The Story Of Menstruation Disney made an educational film for girls adapting to their developing bodies, ‘The Story of Menstruation,’ a 10-minute film seen by millions of schoolgirls in the 1960s. The film won the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.

MICKEY MOUSE: Dabbled in drugs.

7. Hannah Montana Was Almost Alexis Texas Hannah Montana would become one of Disney’s biggest hits and Miley Cyrus was auditioning for the role of the main character’s friend. Producers liked her and gave her the lead role. Several names were considered before deciding on ‘Hannah Montana,’ including ‘Alexis Texas.’ 8.

MEDITERRANEAN DIET: Combination makes it healthy.

Mediterranean diet secrets RESEARCHERS at King’s College London and the University of California claim to have discovered the ‘secret’ of the Mediterranean diet. After a series of tests done, on genetically modified mice, they have concluded that when olive oil is eaten together with vegetables they form nitro fatty acids which help lower blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease, by blocking the enzyme responsible: epoxide hydrolase.

Professor Philip Eaton, lead researcher, explained that the chemical reaction of the oil and vegetable were “nature’s protective mechanism.” He goes on to comment that if it could be tapped they could make new drugs for the treatment of high blood pressure thus preventing, to a large extent, heart disease. So, there we have it - there is no secret just a lucky, healthy combination which also tastes delicious.

The Mooring - for hearty home cooking at its best T

UCKED less than 100 yards from Ibenza square in Benalmadena and sandwiched between the newsagents and a Chinese restaurant on Bonanza Avenue is The Mooring restaurant. Owners Charles and Mary are facing their fourth summer season with optimism and grit. As with all businesses in the area they have witnessed the economic downturn take its toll on many competitors. They have navigated these turbulent waters by sticking to their ethos: that nothing competes with honest quality food at reasonable prices. This determination not to alter from the course of hearty family home cooking prepared with quality ingredients, self-sourced and cooked on site from scratch, has proved their strength when many have floundered. It has been a difficult path - as roasting joints, baking pies and cooking lasagnes in 50-degree heat waves is not for the fainthearted. Charles’s freshly peeled chips and flavoursome vegetables accompany The Mooring’s specials, and include the now famous Mooring Chicken Curry, stuffed breast of chicken, salmon fillet with a chilli creamed sauce and sirloin steak served

There is also a great two-course children’s menu for only €5.60.

There is a very palatable house white or red for €6.50 or a choice ‘label’ wine for just €8.50 plus Mary’s delicious home-made Bailey’s cheesecake or Charles’s sherry trifle, in addition to a range of other home-made temptations to round off your meal.

Windbreaks to protect your garden MANY Spanish gardens are in exposed positions. So windbreaks are required to cope with strong gusty winds that can spoil your enjoyment of an otherwise attractive garden by: a. Making it chilly to sit out on a summer evening after a scorching day on the beach. b. Making it difficult to control the barbecue or the gas cooking ring alight. c. Quickly drying out the garden soil and flower pots. d. Rolling pots over and causing damage to plants.

Dick Handscombe

Gardening Corner By Dick Handscombe Spain’s best known expat gardening author about to start his 26th winter cut back.

e. Evaporating water off the surface of a pond or pool. f. Making it impossible to write books in the garden. Some natural and constructed solutions are listed below. 1. Build strong boundary walls rather than wire mesh fences.

2. If you have wire mesh fences cover them with shrub, cane or wood slat fencing panels or strong closely woven green plastic windbreak cloth. 3. Site eating terraces on the down-wind side of the house. 4. Retain any trees. Trim the tops and train them to grow sideways like a fan. 5. If a small copse of holm oak or pine trees have survived keep them as a valuable windbreak. 6. Plant only deep-rooted specimen trees and ensure they are strongly guyed on four sides.

7. Construct your main sitting out terrace on the downwind side of the house and a secondary terrace on the windy side for use on calm days. 8. Construct Dutch style reinforced glass windbreaks at strategic points in the garden that you can sit behind and still enjoy the best garden views. 9. Similarly glaze in covered terraces on the windy sides of the house so that you can sit in the sun and enjoy views on the windiest of days. 10. Plant internal hedges as

internal windbreaks and plant smaller plants downwind. One can use evergreen plants like lantanas, rosemary, lavender and box. 11. Low growing plants can also be protected by a semicircle of rocks or low dry stone walls. 12. Develop a Japanese style garden using raked areas of gravel, chippings or sand with artistically placed rocks rather than plants. © Dick Handscombe May 2014

Three recalls in one day

TOYOTA announced three recalls in one day, affecting 516,000 vehicles in total, most of them in the USA. The largest of the three new recalls affects Toyota Sienna minivans sold between the 2004 and 2011 model-years. The problem can affect those being used in colder

areas as corrosion can be triggered by road salt and cause the spare tyre under the vehicle to fall off if their supporting cable rusts out. Toyota has had several large recalls related to excess corrosion in recent years. The second recall is for Toyota Highlander and

Highlander SUVs from the 2014 model-year. The Highlander uses a ‘smart’ airbag system designed to distinguish between large adult males, small women and children. That can affect how fast the airbags inflate, if they inflate at all, depending on the severity of the collision.

The third is for 2013 Lexus GS350 sedans. A sensing switch designed to sense when a driver has applied pressure to the brake may inadvertently activate on its own, without driver input. If that happens, the car could decelerate unexpectedly, and without the brake lights coming on to warn other drivers, which could lead to a rear-end collision. General Motors alone has recalled more than 13 million vehicles so far this year, but Toyota is the second man-facturer in terms of total vehicles impacted by callbacks. It has led the recall list for five years.

Again a Toro, the Reelmaster 3100 replaces their trusty, old "John Deere". This is a very precise machine that can mow approaches/fringes, tees and even fairways, the new "Sidewinder" system allowing movement of the

The newest model in the acclaimed Toro range, a Greenmaster 3250-D, has 14 cutting blades (replacing its predecessor which had 11) allowing more quality and better speed on the greens.

It’s the ‘Real thing’ for Madrid Tony Matthews

International Sports A former football player and the world’s most prolific author of football books (more than 100 published), Tony is also the sports reporter for Spectrum Radio and lives in the Cabrera mountains.

Costa de Almeria

WE’LL start with forthcoming attractions in the sporting world: On Saturday, the Super Middleweight re-match between Carl Froch and George Groves takes place before 80,000 fans at Wembley. This bit of ‘unfinished business’ will be a bruising battle for sure! • The Giro d’Italia cycle race finishes on June 1 and also in Italy, Marc Marquez will be chasing his sixth successive MotoGP victory of the season in Mugello. • The fourth and fifth ODI cricket matches

between England and Sri Lanka take place on Saturday at Lords and next Tuesday, June 3, at Edgbaston • For Real, it was their first triumph in this competition since 2002 and their 10th overall. They also netted a record 41 goals in a CL season; 4-1 was the biggest win in a final for 20 years. • A record crowd for any play-off final saw Harry Redknapp’s QPR beat Derby County 1-0 to clinch a return to the Premiership. Zamora’s 90th minute goal earned the Londoners a minimum of £62 million. • Rotherham beat Leyton Orient 4-3 on penalties in the League One play-off final and on Monday, Fleetwood beat Burton Albion 1-0 in the FL2 equivalent to gain promotion to League One for the first time in their history.

A thriller of a CL final in Lisbon • Last Saturday in Lisbon, Real Madrid beat rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 after extra-time in the Champions League final - the first time two teams had competed for the top European prize from the same city. It was 1-1 at the end of normal time, Sergio Ramos heading a dramatic 91st minute equaliser for Real, before Carlo Ancelotti’s team took control. Gareth Bale - only the fifth Welshman ever to play in a EC/CL final - headed Real’s second goal before Marcelo and a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty - his 17th CL goal this season - sealed victory. LEFT: Ramos scores crucial equaliser. RIGHT: Bale gets second for Real.

• Both Edinburgh clubs will be in the Scottish FL1 next season while Hamilton will be in the SPL... all this after Hibs were beaten by the Accies in the relegation/ promotion play-off. Hearts had already been demoted. • Tom Ince, Paul’s son, is in Italy this week hoping to sign for his father’s old club, Inter Milan. • Last Sunday, in the Monaco Grand Prix, it was another Mercedes one-two with Nico Rosberg finishing ahead of Lewis Hamilton with Daniel Ricciardo third. But Hamilton is not a happy chappy after some unscrupulous tactics by his team colleague. And Alain Prost wasn’t too pleased either! • Irish eyes were smiling in golf as Rory McIlroy stormed back to win PGA Championship at Wentworth.

Win for Kestrels THE RED KESTRELS narrowly beat the Yellow Owls in a nailbiting finish to The International School Estepona Sports Day 2014. The result was decided on the last relay race. Mrs Gillian Godbold, Director of the school, said: “It was a wonderful competition and all the children gave their all and it was nice to see The Kestrels win after coming so close in the last three years.” There was also a Mums and

All competitors were given a medal to commemorate the day.

ENERGETIC youngsters put their best foot forward during the British School of Marbella’s annual sports day last Friday. More than 100 children took part in the competition, which included a sack race, an egg and spoon race and a running race for each year group. Afterwards around a dozen competitive parents also took part in an adults’ relay race to win extra points for their children’s house team.
