Letters 65 Time Out 69-72 Health & Beauty ANCIENT SCULPTURE: The Dama de Elche is on display in Madrid’s National Archaeological Museum.

Museum marvel THIS picture of one of Spain’s most famous artefacts comes as the world marks International Museums Day on Saturday. The Dama de Elche (Lady of Elche) is currently held in Madrid’s National Archaeological Museum. It is believed to date from the 4th century BC and is thought to represent an ancient goddess. The sculpture takes its name from the town of Elche in Alicante Province, Valencia where it was discovered in 1897. Manuel Campello Esclapez found

the Dama de Elche on August 4, 1897. Campello Esclapez is said to have uncovered it while clearing land in the La Alcudia area for farming. It was initially acquired by the Louvre in Paris before being returned to Spain in 1941. It was moved to the National Archaeological Museum in 1971 and was loaned to Elche in 2006. The Dama de Elche is thought to have been painted in bright colours when it was originally made. Historians and archaeologists believe it was made by Punic-Iberians, a hybrid cul-

Violent gang concerns MALAGA Province Attorney’s Office has warned that criminal organisations are able to act with impunity on the Costa del Sol as figures showed gang violence is on the rise. The Attorney’s Office said gangs were being drawn to the Costa del Sol because it is near Morocco, making it ideal for drugs smugglers. It comes as figures from prosecutors showed 95 cases were opened into homicide and murder in 2018, 44 per cent more than the previous year.

FOLLOW US ON

The Attorney’s Office said the techniques used by gangs to target their rivals were becoming more dangerous. They referred to two cases which saw someone targeted with explosives in Benahavis and San Pedro de Alcantara. It is believed the bombs, as well as another one which was found on a Marbella urbanisation and did not go off, were planted as part of wider disputes between rival gangs.

ture of pre-Roman Spanish natives and settlers from North Africa. The sculpture is thought to represent the Carthaginian goddess Tanit and the design also has Ancient Greek features. The artefact has become synonymous with ancient Spanish history. It featured on the one-peseta banknote in 1948. It has also inspired art including in French painter James Tissot’s Jephthah’s Daughter, produced shortly after the sculpture’s discovery. Tissot based other works on the Dama de Elche.

Fire damage ‘millions’ A FIRE which started in Coin in 2012 before spreading and torching swathes of the Costa del Sol caused about €39.6 million in damage, a group of experts has found. Those tasked with assessing the costs of the fire presented their findings to Coin’s Third Court of Instruction this week. The court is handling the inquiry into the fire which broke out on August 30, 2012 and torched some 8,225 hectares of land, killed two people and in-

jured 55 others. It began in the Barranco Blanco area of Coin, but later spread to areas near Mijas, Alhaurin El Grande, Ojen and Monda. The expert’s report was drawn up to help calculate the amount of compensation different towns and cities would be entitled to. It estimated Mijas alone could claim €4.2 million. One man has been placed under investigation in connection with the fire. The probe continues.

CONCERNS: Some of the slide’s riders were injured.

Council closes slide By Joe Gerrard ESTEPONA’S council has closed a new ‘urban slide’ a day after it opened due to safety concerns following some injuries. Red and white tape has been wrapped around the 38-metre-long slide to stop people from riding it after opening last Thursday and closed a day later. Several people reported injuries after using the slide, with one woman sharing a picture of grazed elbows on social media. One video

also showed a rider flying off the end. Estepona Council said in a statement it had ordered the company which built the slide to review its safety. The slide has a gradient which varies between 32 and 34 degrees and links Calle Reina Sofia to Calle Eslovaquia. It is the longest of its kind in Spain. It has become the subject of jokes and memes online and has even spawned a parody Twitter account with the description: ‘I don’t like people very much.’

Venezuelan ex-minister arrested SPANISH police acting on a US warrant arrested Javier Alvarado Ochoa, a former Venezuelan minister, in Madrid. He is wanted on money-laundering charges involving Venezuela’s state oil company, PDVSA and is now in prison awaiting extradition, sources said. Alvarado was president of Bariven, a PDVSA subsidiary and in 2011, when the oil company had cash flow problems, he and a group of high-ranking executives allegedly asked suppliers for kickbacks in exchange for prioritising their payments. Alvarado was minister for Electric Power Development under Venezuela’s late president, Hugo Chavez, whose successor Nicolas Maduro described the US investigation as politically motivated. The ex-minister is the second high-profile Venezuelan to be detained in Spain in less than a month, following the arrest - again on a US warrant of Hugo Carvajal, former head of Venezuelan military intelligence, on drug trafficking charges. Maduro claims that Washington is trying to undermine his government with sanctions for PDVSA and several members of his government in an attempt to pressure him into allowing Opposition leader Juan Guaido to take office and call elections. Maduro retaliated by cracking down on Guaido allies after quelling an attempted uprising days ago.

Police have closed the website used by the various criminal groups to abuse the victims. The vast majority of the victims are girls between the ages of eight and 14. All the groups used similar techniques to groom the children. The ‘hunters’ tracked them on social media using fake identities or pretending to be children. The victims were then led to the platform where ‘loopers’ encouraged them to perform sex acts on webcam while they were recorded. It all started as a game to gain the child’s trust.

BREXIT BRIEF Election latest CAMPAIGNING for the EU elections in Britain is now in full swing, with significant upsets anticipated as new Brexit-focused groups look set to siphon votes away from established parties. An Opinium poll for The Observer suggested Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party could win more votes than the Conservatives and Labour combined. The party polled at 34 per cent, ahead of Labour in second place with 21 per cent, the Liberal Democrats in third and the Conservatives in fourth. Conservative losses have by and large come from leave-supporting Tories ditching the party in droves ahead of the election on Thursday May 23. Labour has also suffered from the same effect, but to a lesser degree. The Liberal Democrats appear to have taken up the mantle of being the remain party after making extensive gains in local elections earlier this month. Change UK, formerly The Independent Group which was spawned by Labour and Conservative defections earlier this year, languishes in last place with 3 per cent. That party had originally sought to pitch itself as the leading advocate for remain, but has been dogged by scandals while struggling to build its identity and momentum.

Call for vote By Joe Gerrard THE possibility of Britain’s Brexit impasse being settled by a second referendum has increased after a leading Labour opposition’s figure said a deal would not pass without a public vote. Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said his party would be unable to provide Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal with a workable majority without a second referendum. Starmer is currently leading talks for Labour with the ruling Conservatives which seek to reach a cross-party agreement on getting a deal through Westminster. “A significant number of Labour MPs, probably 120 if not 150, would not back a deal if it hasn’t got a confirmatory vote,” Starmer told British media. Labour deputy leader Tom Watson said it would be difficult to enforce a Brexit agreement without a second vote. Party leader Jeremy Corbyn also said another vote could be a ‘healing

Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said his talks with senior government figures suggested May was ‘inching’ towards a second referendum. It comes as Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said a second referendum would be a ‘betrayal’ of the result of the 2016 vote. He added this week was ‘crunch week’ for the talks before

voters go to the polls on Thursday May 23. Downing Street sources said there was a ‘clear desire’ to reach a deal. May will need to find a consensus to put to parliament or face having a rerun of the indicative votes staged earlier this year. David Lidington, May’s de facto deputy, said the government was aiming to get a deal through Parliament by July 2.

late mother, Princess Diana. The photograph also appears to have been taken in front of a bed of forget-me-nots, reportedly Princess Diana’s favourite flowers. The caption used American spellings of words including ‘honor,’ leading commentators to speculate whether the Duchess of Sussex had written the message herself.

A very different kind of ballgame AT the El Martinet state school in Ripollet (Barcelona) pupils do not play football or basketball. Instead the sports court is surrounded by small heaps of earth where the primary school pupils make their own constructions with twigs and pieces of wood. When the school was built in 2004 the governors asked Cataluña’s Education department not to install the court. “It’s not that there is no

sport,” said the headteacher Isabel Trias, who explained that the 480 pupils play cooperative games where the purpose is not winning, but practising sport in the open air. As the school does not believe it is necessary to play traditional ballgames, no balls are allowed in the school. “They are associated with competitive games and the football kits encourage consumerism in chil-

dren,” Trias maintained. Although the school’s policies are approved by the school council and families and have official backing, the Education department insisted on installing the officially-required sports court. At one stage this was covered with earth, but the town hall ordered the school to remove it. “As you can see, the pupils use other areas,” Trias said. “It’s senseless.”

FIGURES DOWN: The number of bull-related events decreased in 2018.

Bullfighting figures SPAIN hosted 1,521 bull events in 2018, according to new figures. The number represents a slight decrease on the previous year, down by 32 fights and 2.1 per cent, according to the Ministry of Culture and Sports. Of these events, 369 - 24.3 per cent were bullfights, 169 - 11.1 per cent - were celebrations, 217 - 14.3 per cent - were bullfights using spears, and 219 - 14.4 per

cent - were festivals. The remainder were mixed events involving various activities. The majority - 77.9 per cent - of these events took place in Andalucia, Castilla y Leon, Castilla La Mancha, and the Comunidad de Madrid. The total number of bullfighters registered with the General Registry of Bullfighting was 9,723, of which 97.5 per cent - 9,484 - were men, and 2.5 per cent - 239 - were women.

Baited food left for pets PIECES of meat, ham and tortilla camouflaging sharp objects have been detected in Orense (Galicia) parks. Residents in the A Ponte district were alarmed when they discovered the baited food, clearly intended to injure or kill cats and dogs. A group of neighbours

reported to the police that they had saved a dog’s life by removing a piece of ham containing ‘an enormous nail’ from its mouth. Since then, the Local Police found more food containing needles, pins and nails and have warned the owners to take extreme

care when allowing their pets to go outside or walking dogs in public parks. According to the Progape animal protection society, it was the first case of this kind in Orense, although there had been episodes of poisoning in the past.

Century’s 2nd-wettest April LAST April was the second wettest in Spain in the 21st century and saw the fourthhighest rainfall on record, according to data from the country’s meteorological agency AEMET.

AEMET figures showed an average of 96 litres of rain per square metre fell on Spain during April. That is 48 per cent higher than the 65-litre average recorded between 1981 and

2010. The rainiest day was Friday April 19, when 99 litres per square metre fell on the area around Alicante-Elche Airport. Parts of the Valencia and

Murcia regions saw more than three times their average amount of rainfall. Eastern provinces in Andalucia saw about double while Mallorca saw half the average amount.

Spain: Gibraltar ‘illegally occupied’ SPAIN’S Foreign Ministry said Britain’s control of Gibraltar amounts to an ‘illegal occupation’ as representatives from Madrid presented their case on the enclave to the UN. Foreign Ministry officials said the British enclave was a colony within its own borders and said its ongoing ‘occupation’ raises issues in the modern era. This comes as Spanish envoys travelled to Grenada to make the country’s case on the territory to the UN. They argued Gibraltar was different to others on the UN list of non self-governing territories because the principle of self-determination is often applied there. Almost 99 per cent of its voters rejected sharing sovereignty with Spain in a 2002 referendum. The UN meeting was also

He said UN resolutions did not cover retroactively applying a sovereignty claim which dates from three centuries ago. It comes as Spain recently got the EU to refer to Gibraltar as a colony in a document covering postBrexit visa arrangements.

A spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May said at the time that the use of the term in relation to the enclave was ‘unacceptable.’ Spain has claimed Gibraltar since the enclave was seceded to Britain under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 following the War of the Spanish Succession.

Talks continue By Joe Gerrard SPAIN’S prime minister has completed a round of talks with other party leaders as he continues to seek a coalition deal following April’s general election. Pedro Sanchez has not yet said which party or parties he will work with going forward. He met with the leaders of the conservative Partido Popular (PP), the centrist Ciudadanos and the leftist Podemos last week. PP leader Pablo Casado’s turn came first. By election day on Sunday April 28, it appeared the relationship between the two was in disrepair, with each trading heavy rhetorical blows in the run up to the vote. Their meeting appeared to show a thawing of relations, with the two agreeing to open a direct line of communication on the ongoing Catalan inde-

Casado, who is still dealing with the fallout from the election which saw the PP score its worst result in its history, said his party would not back Sanchez’s reinvestment. Talks between Sanchez and Ciudadanos leader Albert Rivera came next. Rivera offered to support Sanchez if he chose to reinstate Article 155 in Cataluña, the constitutional mechanism

used to suspend its regional government and impose direct rule in 2017. The Ciudadanos leader said his party would be a firm but loyal opposition force. He previously ruled out working with the left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) while Sanchez remains its leader. Sanchez then met with Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias. Their talks follow 10 months

of PSOE and Podemos co-operation in the Congress of Deputies since PSOE came to power last June. Sources from both parties said they had built trust and understanding between them in that time, possibly laying the foundations for a coalition deal. Iglesias told reporters after the meeting he and Sanchez had ‘agreed to agree.’ Both sides said the meeting was positive and the two had been able to find common ground on a number of issues. Party sources suggest there will not be further meetings between the two until after local, regional and EU elections on Sunday May 26. But the two have agreed to work together during the Congreso investiture vote which Sanchez needs to win to stay on as prime minister. It is due to take place on Tuesday.

Local forecast THE left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) is on course to take control of several authorities in local and regional elections on Sunday May 26, new polling suggests. Spain’s Centre for Sociological Investigation (CIS) forecast PSOE would win in 10 of the 12 regions up for grabs, including in the conservative Partido Popular’s (PP) Murcia stronghold. PSOE is set to fall just short of an absolute majority, 16, in Sevilla City, winning between 13 and 15 council seats with 42.3 per cent of the vote. PSOE is also set to surge in Zaragoza City, becoming the second-largest party with between eight and nine councillors in a typically PP-safe city. The PP is still set to win there and get between nine and 10 councillors, but PSOE could join with other leftist parties to wrestle control from them. Regionalist party Compromis is set to win the most seats, between nine and 11, in Valencia City. PSOE looks set to come second with between six and eight councillors. City-focused parties Mas Madrid and Barcelona en Comu look set to be the largest parties in the Spanish and Catalan capitals. Poll tracker (EU elections): Partido Socialista (PSOE): 30.3 per cent, 20 seats Partido Popular (PP): 18.5 per cent, 12 seats Ciudadanos: 16.6 per cent, 10 seats Unidos Podemos: 11.4 per cent, seven seats Vox: 7.8 per cent, five seats

Missing girl found NATALIA SANCHEZ, the Mallorcan student who went missing from Paris a week ago, has been found safe and well. The Erasmus student, who had two weeks of her course left in the French capital, was traced after a couple reported seeing her on a bus. The tourists claim the girl befriended them on a bus and was behaving unusually before asking them for help in getting out of Paris. They said they tried to reassure her but she became suspicious of them and left. The couple said they later realised she was the girl who had gone missing a week before and so alerted authorities, who were able to find her. The same day she had gone missing, Natalia is said to have posted a series of worrying messages to her social network pages, saying she felt ‘persecuted.’ After police tracked the girl down, she was admitted to a Parisian psychiatric hospital for several days.

Growing number of interns SPAIN has around 70,000 interns, more than any other European Union country apart from Slovenia. This figure applies to interns who receive a salary and are registered with the Spanish Social Security system. The true figure is far higher as an internet study carried out by www.acierto.com to coincide with International Interns Day found that 58 per cent of Spain’s interns receive no payment. The number of contracts has grown by 350 per cent since 2015 and there is now an intern for every 15 workers although three in every five are unpaid and approximately two in 10 are over 30. Of those who do receive a salary, 80 per cent said that this did not even cover basic expenses. But it is not all bad news for interns, as an analysis by the Public Employment Service found that 27 per cent of interns later joined the companies where they had been taken on for work practice.

PUZZLE: The coins were found in Utah’s Glen Canyon.

Spanish coin mystery by Joe Gerrard EXPERTS have begun working to find out how a Spanish coin minted in the 1200s ended up in what is now the US after it was found in Utah. The coin was found with another minted in Madrid in 1660 in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The one made in the 13th century has puzzled archaeologists and historians due to it predating Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas by more than 200 years. Spanish explorers did not arrive in Utah until 1776.

Glen Harmon, an archaeologist from the US’ National Park service, said the older coin looked as though it dated from the mid to late 13th century. Experts are still working to find out exactly when and where it was made, he added. “Based on the design we’re very confident that one of the coins, the larger one, is called the 16 maravedi,” Harmon said. Theories propose the coins may have been left by early settlers or explorers or that they were traded with a Native American tribe. Others suggest they were brought to America long after being minted or that they were dropped by a modern coin collector.

Jose Valera, head of digitisation at UGT, said Spain was above the European average for the amount of people who have never been online. Francisco Polo, Secretary of State for Advanced Digital, said the problem would only worsen if it is not addressed.

AN extinct relative of modern humans hunted and ate each other while living in Spain about 900,000 years ago in what could be the oldest known instance of cannibalism. Homo antecessor bones found at the Gran Dolina site in Burgos Province, Castilla y Leon, bore tooth mark, cuts and exposed marrow. Researchers from Spain’s National Centre of Investigation into Human Evolution (CENIEH) claim these prove the prehistoric relative of humans ate one another. Lead study author Jesus Rodriguez said Homo antecessors ate other members of its species because they were easier to hunt than other prey. “Homo antecessor, like any predator, selected its prey following the principle of optimising the costbenefit balance. “Hominins were a ‘highranked’ prey type.

New residency requirements LIVING in Spain can bring with it an array of issues which may not have been encountered when living in the UK. There are lots of things to consider, and we are here to help try to make the transition and life in Spain a little easier by compiling a series of helpful facts and figures relating to a variety of topics.

While there are new rules for British nationals applying for residency in Spain, there will be no change to the right and status of EU nationals living in the UK, nor UK nationals living in the EU, while the UK remains in the EU. As an EU citizen it is now mandatory to register as a resident if you intend on living in Spain for more than three months. You must register in person at the Oficina de Extranjeros (immigration office) - visit: http://www.seat.mpr.gob.es/portal/servicios/extranjeria/extranjeria_ddgg.html for regional offices - or a designated police station, which you can find at: https://www.policia.es/docu mentacion/oficinas/oficinas_extran.html You must make an appointment online before going to your local office or station, which can be done on the Spanish public administration website: https://sede.administracione spublicas.gob.es/icpplus/index.html When making your appointment you must select the province where you live and then the option ‘certificados UE’ and follow the instructions. You take the following documents with you to your appointment: Passport or other identity document (not expired) Official form (EX-18), two copies, filled and signed by the UE national. In addition, you will need other documents, depending on your situation: • (employed) - contract of employment or other proof of your employment status. • (self-employed) - proof of registration in the register of economic activities or other proof of your employment status. • (not employment in Spain) - Proof of: health cover valid in Spain; sufficient means to support yourself and your family. • (pensioners) - provide proof of public health cover. • (students) - proof of your registration in an educational establishment; proof of public or private health cover; formal declaration that you have sufficient means to support yourself during your stay. *You will be issued with a credit-card sized residence certificate which will include your name, address, nationality, NIE number, and date of registration. *The old A4 residence certificates are still valid, and you do not need to apply for a creditcard sized alternative unless your circumstances change, for example you move house. But you can if you want to, at any time. *After five years of being registered as a resident, you can apply for a certificate of permanent residence in Spain. The card will be similar, but state that you are a ‘residente permanente.’ This information is for guidance only, and should not be taken as legal advice. If in any doubt, seek professional help.

FIFTY-TWO immigrants managed to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla after storming its border with Morocco. One hundred tried to cross the double fence topped with razor wire in the first collective attempt since October last year, choosing one of the border’s comparatively vulnerable sections located near the

airport. A statement by the national government’s Delegate in Melilla announced that ‘rapid action’ taken by the Moroccan security forces and the Guardia Civil prevented roughly half of the contingent from entering the enclave. At least one man was badly injured as he tackled the razor wire that tops the fence, and

was taken to hospital with lacerated hands and feet. Another was detained for resisting arrest and four Guardia Civil officers suffered minor injuries as they tried to prevent the mass arrival of the would-be immigrants who came principally from Cameroon, the Ivory Coast and Mali.

Edificio España THE past 15 years have seen the ownership of the landmark Edificio España building in Madrid change, with sales totalling more than €800 million in that time. Originally sold by Santander Bank, it changed hands twice between Chinese companies and was then purchased by Grupo Baraka and was sold the same day for a profit to the Riu Hotel chain for refurbishment. A dispute however arose concerning ownership and chairman of Baraka, Trinitario Casanova (who was previously fined for manipulating the price of Banco Popular’s shares in 2008 which he denies) asked the Madrid Court to instruct the hotel giant to suspend works on the building for alleged breach of contract. The court however has now ruled that he was unable to prove he was the joint owner or held any rights to any part of the building and awarded costs against Grupo Baraka.

IDENTITY: Borrell said a sense of being Spanish needed to be built.

Spanish identity SPAIN’S Foreign Minister has said the country lacks a sense of identity in comparison with others in Europe. Josep Borrell said stronger senses of identity could be seen in countries such as Italy and Hungary, but added theirs was perhaps too excessive. He was speaking at a debate at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. “Identities do not grow on trees, they are a social con-

struction, they are built. You feel something because you live in an ecosystem which builds your identity,” Borrell said. “Your family, school, the television you watch, it all makes you Spanish or not. But you are not born with an identity package, we have to build a national identity and in Spain it is very weak,” the minister added. Borrell added it was possi-

ble to have a European identity while also having a national one. “The European identity does not destroy the national identity, it gives you an additional one. It’s like Russian dolls,” Borrell said. He added Europeans should mix more through the Erasmus programme and other schemes to help cement peace and friendship among EU members.

Lau was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison in 2015 for leaving Adam Robinson beaten, stabbed and bound in a wheelie bin in Ballymena. According to media reports, the criminal’s body is now expected to be flown back to Ballymena. Lau had been facing drugs charges when he escaped to Spain. A warrant was issued for his arrest on January 23. The deceased was one of three men jailed for their 2013 attack on Robinson, who was found with satanic-style symbols carved into his head and body. The victim had been sealed in a wheelie bin before being dumped in dense undergrowth, where he remained trapped for hours until a passer-by heard his screams.

Fewer Blue Flag beaches ALTHOUGH Spain boasts more Blue Flag beaches than any other country, the 2019 figures show an overall reduction of 25, with a total of 566. In all, 50 beaches - the majority in Andalucia and the Canary Islands - have lost their Blue Flag status and only 25 new flags were awarded. This information was released by Association of Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC) which is responsible for checking all Spanish beaches and it was revealed the majority of the losses were due to poor quality of bathing water, bad management of urban wastewater and in some cases inadequate control of Chiringuitos (beach bars). The most prolific number of beaches awarded Blue Flags are in the Autonomous Community of Valencia followed by Cataluña. There are 98 marinas and five piers also awarded this accolade, but overall the total number of Blue Flags is the lowest since 2014.

Video games rule by Joe Gerrard ACCORDING to the president of the Spanish Assoc i a t i o n o f Vi d e o G a m e s (AEVI), Alberto Gonzalez Lorca, turnover for video game sales in Spain was €1.530 million in 2018. This is an increase of 12.6 per cent over 2017 figures and the results show that video gaming earns almost double that of the combined turnover for films and recorded music. Growth has been fed by a huge increase in online gaming with income of €680 million, but the physical market still leads the way with €849 million spent on software, hardware and accessories. Other interesting statistics which have been revealed are that there are now some 16.8 million active gamers in Spain of which, perhaps surprisingly, 41 per cent are women.

ALBERTO GONZALEZ LORCA: Announced the 2018 figures. One area in which the Spanish do lag behind other European partners is in the area of weekly hours of play which averages 6.2

April saw a total of 235,397 jobs on offer, a reduction of 3 per cent over the previous month, but the figures vary tremendously from area to area and unemployment is down by 91,518. The reduction in jobs registered may be due to the holidays surrounding Holy Week, but readers of Euro Weekly News may be pleased to know that vacancies in all of the areas covered by our six editions are up with Murcia seeing an increase of 26 per cent, closely followed by the Balearics with 25 per cent. An increasing number of jobs are full-time, although it is anticipated that fixed period positions will increase as the tourist season grows.

Church abuse crackdown SPAIN’S churches will comply with Pope Francis’s announcement demanding all sexual abuse case should be reported immediately. The Pope introduced the measure, which governs everyone within the church, including men and women, as well as historic sex abuse cases. The deputy bishop of Valladolid, Monsignor Luis Arguello, welcomed the announcement and confirmed Spain’s ‘general decree’ which had been drafted by the Episcopal Conference to deal with the issue. According to Spanish media, the document, which is awaiting final approval by the Pope, demands all abuse cases must be reported to Spain’s civil justice system, and makes it a legal obligation to pass accusations on.

by Joe Gerrard SPAIN’S Foreign Minister has accused the US of acting like a geopolitical ‘cowboy’ over Venezuela and of abusing its diplomatic might over Cuba. Josep Borrell told the RTVE television channel the US had effectively told Venezuela ‘careful or I’ll draw’ as the Latin American country remains beset by political and economic crises. Senior figures in Washington, including National Security Advisor John Bolton, have openly talked about intervening in some way to remove Nicolas Maduro’s regime. They have also repeatedly refused to rule out using force. “The US is acting like the cowboys in the Far West,” Borrell said. The Foreign Minister added the only solution to the Venezuelan crisis was one reached peacefully, democratically and through ne-

It comes as Borrell also hit out at Washington after it said it would lift a ban on lawsuits being filed against companies operating in Cuba. The Foreign Minister said Spain is prepared to take the case up at the World Trade

Organi sat i on ( WTO) and branded the move an abuse of power. About 71 per cent of all businesses run by foreign companies in Cuba are controlled by Spanish investors, according to Foreign Ministry figures.

NATIONAL Cinema closures

A TOTAL of 662 cinemas have closed in Spain since 2008, with 100 shutting during 2018 alone according to industry figures. The Spanish Federation of Film Exhibitors’ (FECE) Theatres: Data and Figures report found there were 4,140 cinemas in the country in 2008. That figure was down to 3,518 by last year. It comes as the report also found visitor numbers had fallen by almost 10 per cent in the last decade, from 107.8 million in 2008 to 97.7 million last year. FECE President Juan Ramon Fabra said the last recession, a rise in VAT, piracy and a real-term fall in average incomes all contributed to a ‘very hard’ process of closures.

EU identity ABOUT 83 per cent of Spanish people identify as European citizens, the fourth highest in the EU according to the EU’s Eurobarometer, which measures social and political attitudes. The Spanish came behind Luxembourg, Germany and Ireland in the ranking. The average amount of people identifying as European citizens across the bloc was 71 per cent, according to the Eurobarometer.

Power tariff call SPAIN has called on the EU to look into slapping duties on imported energy to protect European plants from competition despite i m p o r t i n g c o alp r o d u c e d e n e rg y f r o m Morocco. The European Commissioner for Energy and Climate Action Miguel Arias Cañete replied to Spanish Climate Change Minister Teresa Ribera’s request for tariffs last week.

This comes as Spain began importing energy from Morocco at the start of this year as the former country continues to wind down its use of fossil fuels. Moroccan-produced energy tends to be cheaper because power plants do not have to pay for pollution permits.

‘Black legend’ study A NEW book examining the spread of the so-called ‘black legend’ of Spain in British and American culture has been published. Historian Esteban Vicente Boisseau’s The Image of Spain’s Presence in the Americas (1492-1898) in British and US Film explores negative stereotypes about the country in popular culture. The ‘black legend’ refers to the negative image of Spain promoted by English and other writers from the 16th century onwards. The Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is one of several studied in the book. Boisseau said it was one example of derogatory images of Spanish people being used to entertain English-speaking audiences. “The message conveyed in Pirates of the Caribbean is one of robbing, torturing and killing Spaniards who sell, buy and abuse Hispanic women and loot,” Boisseau said. The historian’s book cites examples of films covering periods across Spanish history. Director Ridley Scott’s 1992 film 1492: Conquest of Paradise is cited for implying that executions were a common feature

MYTH BUSTING: Boisseau claimed Pirates of the Caribbean spread negative stereotypes about the Spanish. during the Spanish Inquisition. Boisseau writes that while between 3,000 and 5,000 people were killed in more than three centuries in connection with the Inquisition, more than 50,000 Catholics were executed in Henry VIII’s reign alone. The book claims the negative im-

ages were promoted from the late 19th century onwards as the US sought to discredit Spain while it fought for dominance in the American continent. The stereotypes were used to partly justify the US’ war against Spain over Cuba in 1898, Boisseau writes.

Central bank economy warning SPAIN’S central bank has said global economic growth will likely slow down this year amidst ongoing uncertainty and risk. The Bank of Spain said the ongoing trade war between the US and other parts of the world, Brexit and slowdown in China’s economy were among the factors slowing growth. “Any of these events or a combination of them would have an impact on the global economy, which could become significant, meaning economic stabilisation policies have a limited scope for action,” the bank’s report said. The bank forecasts world economy will grow by 3.3 per cent this year, three 10ths less than in 2018. Growth prospect for the EU have been reduced ‘remarkably’, according to the Bank of Spain. Factors affecting it include ongoing unrest in France due to the Gilet Jauntes (Yellow Vest) protests and the ongoing recession in Italy.

ARRESTED: 31 suspects have been arrested as part of an international sting.

Paedophile network POLICE have arrested three people in Spain on suspicion of belonging to a network of online paedophiles. The Guardia Civil claim a videoconferencing platform was being used by several groups to film children and disseminate the footage. The operation, which was part of an international sting, saw a total of 31 people arrested and 145 victims identified, mostly girls aged between eight and 14 years old.

Jobs face automation AROUND one in five Spanish jobs could soon be done by robots as automation continues to move into more industries, the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has said. The percentage of Spanish jobs which could disappear altogether, almost 22 per cent, is above the OECD average of 14 per cent. Other OECD figures showed the cost of retraining workers who face redundancy due to machines would be about 0.85 per cent of Spanish economic output (Gross Domestic Product, GDP). That would be more than €995 million based on Spain’s GDP of almost €1.2 trillion in 2017. It comes as the OECD said in March that more than half of all Spanish jobs were at risk of a ‘significant’ loss or transformation due to automation.

were in the United States, while eight victims were identified in Spain. According to police, the paedophile rings all used similar techniques, including using ‘hunters’ to track down children to abuse through social media, and ‘loopers,’ those tasked with creating the videos. The first arrest within the operation in Spain was in February 2018 in Alicante, and saw a suspect sentenced to 180 years in prison for 38 separate child pornography charges.

Farming plan moves forward SPAIN’S central government has confirmed plans for the future of the country’s Common Agricultural Policy are advancing well. Luis Planas, acting Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, said there had been ‘great cooperation’ between the government and Spain’s autonomous communities. Planas will next week travel

to Brussels to meet with his counterparts to discuss the policy. He explained the first step will be to create two working groups to study profitability of farms and how to include young people in the profession. The minister said the work is expected to be finished within a year and a half to meet the European Union’s timetables.

Gemma Disson told one publication she had chosen to holiday in Spain because it included a free place for her four-year-old daughter. The family were due to travel to Menorca in May but had to cancel their £1,000 (€1,160) trip for family reasons. While Gemma told British media she expected to pay a cancellation fee for her and her partner, she was angry to learn she would also have to pay another fee for her daughter’s place. Ms Disson claims she wrote to TUI in February to query the charge but has not heard back. Her letter explained: “I appreciate the cost of £200 per person in fees and I expected that for myself and my partner but not for my daughter.

Living La Dolce Vita in Benalmadena By Dilip Kuner A TASTE of La Dolce Vita - the Sweet Life - came to Benalmadena’s Puerto Marina over the weekend. Inspired by the movies of Federico Fellini it gave people the chance to sample the food, culture, cars, music and art of Italy. There were shows and fun activities lined up for all the family over the course of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In keeping with the light-hearted aspect of the day, centre stage was taken by the seriously fun Abarth cars. They are racy hot hatchbacks with the sweet looks of the iconic Fiat 500, and many of those on display from the Abarth Club de Malaga were tuned to make an impressive noise! They were joined by members of Malaga’s Vespa club who brought some fine examples of the iconic scooter along to show to the public. The Euro Weekly News was there in the glorious weather with piles of our spectacular Success Special issue, which were quickly snapped up by people wanting to relax with a good read. Italian food and wine was on offer to the public, with a succession of high quality concerts from the likes of Deborah Dee and Oronero plus DJ sets. The youngsters from the Academia Fama put on a series of excellent dance displays with a classi-

cal Italian theme based on folklore, which proved to be very much appreciated by onlookers. One of the highlights of the weekend’s action was a parade by the Abarth Club when a police escort took them through the streets of Benalmadena. Speaking to EWN holidaymaker June Andrews from Surrey, UK, she said: “It has been a very enjoyable time. I came to Spain for Spanish culture, now I have had the bonus of Italian too!” Paul Varty, who lives in Marbella, was as equally impressed with the Euro Weekly News bumper edition, saying: “I pick up a copy of the EWN every Thursday because it is such a good read. There is certainly plenty to read in this week’s issue!” Mayor of Benalmadena Victor Navas, who threw the town council’s weight behind the event, said it was fitting that the unique port of Puerto Marina should be showcasing culture from a country that is also famous for its ports and relationship to the sea.

Santander in jobs talks SPANISH bank Santander is meeting with trade union representatives as it aims to avoid making redundancies during corporate restructuring which could affect more than 3,000 workers. The bank and the CCOO union are negotiating the company’s Employment Regulation File (ERE), plans firms have to put into place for staff if corporate decisions put jobs at risk. Santander sources said their restructuring came as it continues to integrate the technological infrastructure of Banco Popular into its business. Santander bought Popular after the latter’s depositors withdrew money from ac-

By Joe Gerrard counts en masse in 2017. Santander said any agreement reached with unions would be struck in accordance with Article 12 of Spain’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, the law which governs negotiations over potential job losses. The CCOO said it would aim to get Santander to agree to saving as many jobs as possible. Workers offered early retirement packages should get a ‘sufficient’ payoff to provide long-term stability, the union added. “This should allow them to leave in an

orderly and stress-free manner,” the union said. Another union, UGT, said staff could not continue to pay the price for company restructuring. Current talks come as Santander announced plans to close 140 branches in Britain, cutting 1,270 jobs, in January. The bank’s British arm said branch transactions had fallen by 23 per cent during the last three years, while the use of online banking has risen. Retail banking head in Britain Susan Allen said: “The way clients relate to the bank has changed dramatically in recent years.”

PRIVATE EQUITY firm KKR now has a majority stake in Spanish fast food chain Telepizza after buying more than a quarter of its stock for almost €28 million. The firm and its partners made its stock offer through the Tasty Bidco entity, according to Spain’s National Securities and Markets Commission. KKR now controls about 56.3 per cent of Telepizza either directly or indirectly, up from the almost 28.6 per cent before the purchase. Some rival stockholders of Telepizza had previously refused to sell their stakes.

» BUSINESS EXTRA

Fast growing Costa company THE owner of a Costa del Sol-based company which recently featured in a ranking of the fastest growing companies in Europe has spoken to Euro Weekly News about the business. Janus Nielsen, of the AnyTech 365 IT support firm, said it contracts with technology and appliance companies to offer help to customers experiencing technical problems with devices. His company re-

cently ranked 27th in the Financial Times’ Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies table. “We offer the first service for free and then we ask if the client wants to subscribe for a fee. About 30 per cent do so,” Neilsen said. “We employ about 360 people at the moment, but we are aiming to reach 500. We can offer clients services in their native language,” he added.

Bankrupt families THE amount of Spanish families who declared bankruptcy for not making debt payments fell by 3.3 per cent in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period of 2018, National Institute for Statistics (INE) figures show.

Reform call THE CSIF trade union has called for a change in labour laws to bring worker representation to staff in small and medium-sized companies after finding that 4.3 million of Spain’s 17 million workers are employed in non-unionised firms.

New post SPANISH Economy Minister Nadia Calviño has been appointed president of the board of governors of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) alongside her ministerial brief for a year, replacing current head Jyrki Katainen.

Times have changed LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT NO blacks. No Irish and no dogs. This is the oft publicised ‘unacceptable face of racism,’ of the late 50’s and early 60’s, when landladies, letting out rooms in areas of London and other cities posted this on the doors and windows of their establishments. By today’s standards these signs do of course appear utterly disgusting and totally unacceptable. But times have changed drastically since those far more insular and uninformed times. Back then, these were not blanket judgements, simply because of someone’s skin colour or country of origin. They were decisions made because of the general reputation gained by those who were considered foreigners at that time. Many Irish were not welcomed by landladies because the vast majority worked the roads and building sites, and on weekends were renowned for arriving back at all hours and keeping all the other tenants awake by bellowing Irish ditties at the tops of their voices. People of colour had, in the main, only recently arrived from countries which were far less developed than the UK, with many having never even seen a toilet or experienced abodes with running water. Through no fault of their own, their general stan-

dards of living were vastly different to the locals. The landladies simply couldn’t cope with the culture differences. As for dogs, this was in no way a comparison. Merely that landladies didn’t want the barking to annoy the other tenants. We weren’t racists; we were merely treating those around us as we found them. I personally NEVER judged people by creed or colour. In those heady flower-power days, I truly did believe the UK was the forerunner of how the whole world would be one day; convinced that in the words of Blue Mink and Madeline Bell, (who I know still peruses this column) that all we did indeed require was a great big melting pot, turning out coffee coloured people by the score! For a time I lived in Bayswater’s All Saints Road. At the end of the road was a pub frequented mainly by the black neighbourhood community. I was often the only white face in the pub and thoroughly enjoyed the company and the Ska and reggae music while enveloped in the vaguely sweet aroma of ‘pot.’ No racism there either. Some years later I returned to reminisce in the area which held so many memories. The taxi driver wouldn’t even drive down the street! I walked to the packed, still wholly black clientele pub and after a few minutes made the decision to leave because of the uncomfortable silence which had descended over the whole establishment. I truly was utterly

SIGN: Found in establishments in the 1960s. shocked and disappointed. Believe me, we were never the racists. Generally we welcomed those from different societies. We never envisaged that our liberal attitude would in later years bring the threat of other religions and cultures trying to alter our whole way of life and democratic liberty. No wonder the UK is now infested with racist views.

When you find yourself arguing racism with some snowflake or another, remember to remind them of one thing. Those people had all the best intentions in the world. And now find their very freedom of speech threatened! Just saying… Keep the faith, Love, leapy. leapylee 2002@gmail.com.

A SCOTTISH airport’s about to introduce the first full-time therapy dogs in the UK travel industry to calm anxious passengers. There are already more than 50 animal therapy programmes in airports across America, including one, at San Francisco International, featuring Lu Liu the pig. Though not all airlines are sympathetic. Last year, a woman was refused permission to bring Dexter, her emotional-support peacock, on board a flight to Los Angeles. But it’s not just at airports that you come across ‘therapy’ pets. They’re now in the work place, schools and hospitals. An interesting idea, but doubtless there’ll be protests, demonstrations and angry letters to papers in the cause of ‘animal-slavery,’ certain religious objections (let’s not go down that avenue) and allergy - ‘if they bring cats in, I’ll scream and scream until I’m sick’ as someone about to go the full (‘Just William’) Violet Elizabeth Bott might put it. With the imminent approach of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, I often wonder how those who fought and survived the atrocities of the Second World War managed without

THERAPY DOGS: Are to be introduced in a Scottish airport. all these therapy ‘aids’ seemingly deemed ‘essential’ today. I can’t help asking myself whether the high levels of stress and mental illness experienced by millennials nowadays in any way coincide with living in such a riskaverse culture that they’re forbidden all

kinds of emotionally satisfying activities and experiences. Taking risks - like jumping into a pool or climbing a tree - plays a significant role in confidence building for kids. When they learn to swim or ride a bike - learning to feel what it’s like to master something - it has positive effects that spill over into other aspects of their life. Incidentally, a friend of mine has a large Rottweiler. Though she (the dog!) has a calm, placid temperament, she’s so threatening-looking, she’d have zero therapeutic effect on anxious passengers. Quite the opposite! My own little toy poodle would get so stressed she’d need her own therapy dog to recover... Whatever next? Transgender dogs? Would they, in turn, need therapy adults? Blame it all on Brexit - it’s gone to the dogs!

LEGALLY SPEAKING Must he pay in cash? We have lived in our rented apartment for five years. We have paid our rent monthly by bank transfer and declared this to Hacienda when making our tax return, which gave us a refund. We now have a new owner who insists that the rent is paid in cash to the estate agent and also that we do not declare to the Spanish Tax Agency that we pay rent to him. We do declare the rent automatically through our accountant. I suffer from arthritis in both knees and find it difficult to walk the 1.5 km to the estate agency. Our question is: are we legally entitled to pay our rent by bank transfer? P M (Costa del Sol)

No, you cannot David Searl oblige your You and the Law landlord to accept only in Spain payment by bank transfer. He is within his rights to insist on cash payment. However, he has no right to ask you to break the law by not declaring the payment on your tax return. I suggest you tell the estate agency that, if they want payment in cash, that they come to you and collect the rent.

Seafront scam

I WAS disgusted but not surprised to read about the group of 26 people who were arrested for allegedly scamming tourists on Palma beach. Wherever high levels of holidaymakers concentrate there always seem to be people who seek to take advantage of those letting their guard down while away from home. However, while I sympathise with those who have lost their money on these ‘games,’ I was a little shocked that adult tourists had been taken in by the group. It seems to prove the old adage true, ‘if it seems too good to be true, it is.’ Mr John Hedron

French air strikes HI Leapy, I have to compliment you on very detailed articles in the Euro Weekly News , we look forward to continue reading them online here in Ireland. Sometime, if you think it’s worth mentioning, you might mention the fallout of the effects of the continuing French air traffic controllers strike. On May 8, we were affected by this action for the second time, the large expense of rehiring a car, and for some, hotel fees etc. There was little mention of this in the news anywhere. Surely, as this ongoing dispute affects many countries in Europe, it should be an issue for the European Parliament to get involved, in the form of mediation, and indeed put pressure on both sides, to reach a settlement. I am going to write to the MEPs going up for election to see what they have to say about this issue. Keep up the great articles, and looking forward to reading them online. Danny Murphy

Points raised RE: An arrogant affront (Issue 1765). Might I say I have enjoyed reading your articles since I came to Spain and always seem to agree with what your views are. However this I feel has moved me to put something in writing. Both points mentioned are a disgrace. I cannot believe these things are happening and no one in England stands up and speaks. The Sri Lankan atrocity was far more devastating than New Zealand and as you say hardly mentioned. I’m sure if you were Prime Minster things would get sorted, but the downside is you would have to go back to the UK, something I certainly don’t want to do. Keep up the good work!! Lorraine Pilling

OUR VIEW More action needed THE news that Spanish emissions fell by a higher rate than the EU average last year is welcome, but action on climate change must be stepped up to avoid catastrophe. Emissions in Spain fell by 3.2 per cent last year, according to the Eurostat data agency. The EU average was 2.5 per cent, with both figures well below that of Portugal’s which dropped by 9 per cent. Climate change is the single-biggest existential threat to the survival of our species and to the natural world we depend on. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned we have 11 years to drastically change climate policies to prevent irreversible damage. As leading naturalist David Attenborough said in a recent documentary, a failure to do so would mean the end of civilisation as we know it. Here in Spain we are likely to see more heat waves, droughts and desertification of once-arable farmland. Flash floods like the ones which struck Mallorca and the Costa Blanca this year and Malaga Province last year will also increase, and several of Spain’s native animals will disappear. The current left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) government has promised a raft of measures to wean Spain off fossil fuels and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, also the EU’s target. But progress must be accelerated and the fossil fuel industry should shoulder a heavy burden of the effort given it brought us to the brink of a climate cataclysm.

Dramatic rescue: Five girls found after going missing in southern Spain The Guardia Civil mountain rescue team are brilliant. I took a wrong turning on top of Mt Maroma a couple of weeks ago and ran out of food and energy and ended up trying to sleep through the night under bits of grass half way up the mountain. Yet Mountain Rescue found me and helped me back down at 3.30 in the morning. I felt like an idiot as I am an experienced walker, but it was a lesson for me and the rescue guys were superb, hats off to them. Angus

On the buses

Marbella Moments by Nicole King BY the time this column goes to print, we will have just celebrated our fourth international community get-together #UNMS2019. At the time of writing this column we’ve already reached our 150 registrations with more coming in ‘as we speak.’ I can’t wait to tell those of you who couldn’t make it how it went! Fingers crossed ☺. Hopefully by next week we’ll have had the time to process what went on, but in the meantime I’d like to share very positive news which directly relates to concerns and incentives which have arisen each year relating to affordable options for getting around the city. To complement our free drinks for the designated driver, our #zerohero incentive and Linea Directa offering free taxis up to four times a month for policy holders, the town hall of Marbella is now offering free buses! From May 1, if you are on the Padron, the local town census (a

FREE BUSES: As part of the incentives. very simple document which you attain at no cost and with no change to your existing tax status) you can now sign up to obtain your ‘bus pass’ which allows free use of the urban transport service.

Advertising Feature IF you have ever dreamed of a mobile phone service in Spain which is cheap, has great coverage and offers a service completely in English with native Englishspeaking staff - wake up, it’s now become a reality with Lobster Mobile. Two years in the making, Lobster, which is a Spanish company, offers an incredibly simple service to set up with none of the usual bureaucracy. For a flat monthly fee you get unlimited calls and texts in Spain and to the UK and other countries. It really is flippin’ easy and great value for money and instead of loads of different calling plans and complicated contracts you have three simple monthly options, all with unlimited calls and texts and you just choose the amount of data you want. €12 gives you 2GB of data, €18 gives you 7GB of data, and €24 gives you 15GB of data which means basically if you like to watch lots of videos, you will probably be better suited with the medium or large plans, whilst if your main interest is making and receiving calls and sending WhatsApps then the small one is probably the one for you. The great thing about Lobster is that you are not tied into any contract and can change between plans at any time with no penalty, and as an added bonus when you first sign up, your first month’s plan is free to give you the option to decide whether

Councillor for Transport, Felix Romero, said over 30,000 applications have been received, some 24,000 in Marbella and 7,000 in San Pedro de Alcantara. He also commented that “it is

with great satisfaction on the part of the City Council not only to take forward an idea which seemed novel and has had a great reception, but also going to suppose an extraordinary income for

the City Council.” The mayor, Angeles Muñoz said that the second objective pursued by the initiative has also been achieved; to increase the number of registered voters. Another fundamental fact, is that in February and March, the months in which the application began, more than 2,200 people signed up to the Padron which supposes more than half a million euros of benefits for Marbella from the central government. The only requirement to pick up the transport card is to present the DNI, passport or NIE. There are so many great things going on, but telling everyone about them is a challenge, hence making our grapevine incentive more important every year, but one of the hardest to get going. For further details contact your local town hall office or www.mar bella.es. For further details on #zerohero visit: www.zerohero.es.

you like the service with no commitments. Lobster thinks you’ll like it and will want to stay. If you have a Spanish mobile number at the moment and want to keep it, that can easily be arranged so all of your contacts will still be able to call you as normal. Lobster has full national coverage in Spain, running on the Movistar network. This really is a first for Spain as the whole service has been built with English speakers in mind, so the call centre which is open from 9am to 9pm seven days a week responds quickly and you will always find help from a native English speaker on the end of the line. Signing up is simple as all you need is valid ID; passport, NIE or similar, and a credit or debit card and there are no commitments; you simply pay on a monthly basis and can cancel whenever you like. You can sign up online visiting their website www.lobster.es, by calling their call centre for free on 1661, or by going in to one of more than 300 retail stores selling Lobster. There are already thousands of happy customers, one of whom (Frances Cripps) wrote on the company Facebook page: ‘I’ve had my SIM card a month now and so far it’s been one of the best I’ve ever had; internet is great and the staff are really helpful. Would definitely be recommending this company to everyone.’

Advertising Feature ELITE GLASS CURTAINS in Elviria was set up in 2006 and current owner Gemma joined the company in 2007 before taking it over in 2015. This is a company which manufactures its own glass curtains, selling direct to the public as well as supplying builders and general trade orders. Having been in business for so long, the company knows something about the products they make, and in the case of glass curtains, Elite use a bottom loading system of their own bespoke design. Now, in addition to its range of high-quality glass curtains, the company is delighted to be able to offer a whole range of new and innovative glazing products, including aluminium and UPVC windows and doors, retractable and fixed roofs, stainless steel balustrades, pool surrounds, toldos and much more. The company’s factory is situated on the Elviria industrial estate and is a first-class facility creating many varied products, although glass curtains remain their primary product and the one for which they have become so well-respected. Although Gemma is quite content

A company to trust

GLASS CURTAINS: Can turn any space into a room. to say that no glass curtain can ever be 100 per cent watertight because the run is vertically frameless, the curtains they manufacture are produced to the highest standard, and the addition of a run of glass curtains not only helps to create a new and flexible room, but there is a positive reduction in noise and many customers have congratulated Elite on the fact

that the new rooms are kept warm and safe from strong breezes. Add to this the fact that the systems use 10mm safety glass, means that as well as being robust, reflection is cut down, and for those who are worried about UV rays there is also the possibility of adding a solar protection system. Because they manufacture their

own glass curtains, Elite are able to offer accurate and realistic installation dates, ensuring a first-class service from beginning to end, and more importantly giving great service to the ever growing band of customers which Elite has seen increase each year. All of their fitters are very experienced and the company meets all da-

ta protection and health and safety standards as well as being properly insured in case of any unexpected event. You don’t have to worry about the future, as although Elite offer a fiveyear guarantee on the glass curtains, in their 14 years of trading, the life of their product has lasted more than twice over the guarantee period given. Apart from quality of product, Elite Glass Curtains pride themselves on the fact that they offer a personal service with much of their business being by recommendation, and they have now set up a new department, run by Gemma’s husband Carlos to look after the renovation and servicing of installations which they have not supplied themselves. It is very easy to obtain a free quote by visiting their website, www.eliteglasscurtains.com or by calling 952 830 503. The office is open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Me against the system Mike Senker In my opinion Views of a Grumpy Old Man MRS S needed a new laptop so she went to PC World whilst in the UK. The assistant told her the price and five minutes later she was back in the car and on her way. And if you believe that then elephants can fly. Because the truth is it was an absolute nightmare. Have any of you tried to replace a laptop recently? The actual conversation was more like ‘I’d like a new laptop please.’ He says, ‘What type? There’s chrome books, a traditional laptop, Subnotebook, Netbook, Convertible, hybrid, 2in-1, desktop replacement, rugged laptop, business laptop, MacBooks, solid state, dual or quad core. Then he wants to know if she wants touch screen. Why would we want touch screen? It’s just going to get filthy dirty with fingerprints. They had the chat about the difference between solid state and dual or quad core and basically it all boils down to how fast it starts up, but it’s a little more complicated than that. More cores are faster only if a program can split its tasks between the

cores. A newer dual core CPU with a higher clock speed will often outperform an older quad core CPU with a lower clock speed. Got that? Cos I certainly haven’t a clue! Then there’s solid state, which is not like having a normal hard disk, where you store all your stuff. With this you have to store everything on ‘a cloud’ of your choice. By now I am on the ‘phone trying to tell the assistant that she’s not going to be gaming or downloading loads of movies or designing a new shopping centre. All she really wants is a glorified typewriter with a screen and I guess that’s what most older people want. Why does everything have to be so confusing? We finally came up with a laptop that suits her purpose perfectly. But I’m sure it could be a lot simpler. Then the next part of the sales quiz game started - do we want to buy this recommended anti-virus and, of course, you will need to buy Windows Office and do you want the extended warranty and on and on. I already have anti-virus and I use a free office suite that is fine and no I don’t want the extended warranty. Finally she gets it home and the next battle starts. Microsoft wants you to log in with your account which I don’t want and off we go again me against the system!

YOUR STARS

DID YOU KNOW?

FOR NEXT 7 DAYS AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Your emotions, extra expenses and other domestic pressures are on the boil. Put off major decisions until next week. Meanwhile, loosen up, walk into some creative space, and if necessary, talk to someone who understands your ups and downs. There are good things waiting to happen, so refuse to lose your nerve.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) It’s both a vertical and horizontal week. What goes right somewhere could easily go wrong elsewhere. Sensitive Venus conspires with touchy Mars to trigger tensions and troubles. If you're aware of where others are coming from, you'll be fine. You’ll have fun, but don't let your spending splurges rule your head on Wednesday or Saturday.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Your efforts to get your message across might be best delayed for seven days. Fickle Venus and flighty Mercury will cross swords with other planets, so keep your ideas and emotions grounded. Take nothing for granted on Tuesday, and don't agree to anything without the facts.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Don’t jump from one financial frying pan into another. Take it easy on all fronts, especially where your money, emotions and other people's moods are at odds with your ideas. There will be more than one good reason to compromise a little.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) You will see the advantage of working towards a new location, or even a specific makeover for your domestic scene. Either way, wait for a further green light, especially where money’s concerned. Monday and Thursday are delicate days, so play it cool.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Refuse to be miffed by whatever disagreements or difficulties clutter your world. The sooner you get on with things, the better for your peace of mind. Even this week's affrays and dismays are simply passing clouds. Put yourself first, and things will start to change. There’s no telling what might occur, especially if you explore new options.

WHILE modern beds are made with springs for comfort, ancient Romans used to fill theirs with pea pods, and even covered them with velvet or silk for the very wealthy. Even more luxuriously, Pharoah Tutankahmun’s bed was made entirely of gold and ebony, while his subjects slept on palm branches.

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Move forward on this week’s positive waves of optimism. Treat yourself, but don’t over-indulge your temptations. The planets aren’t dancing to all your wants and desires. If certain situations or individuals seem complicated, wait until the dust settles, then follow your hunches.

PURE LUXURY: Pharoah Tutankahmun slept on a bed of gold.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) There's a saying that if it doesn’t rain, it pours, so keep an umbrella of humour to hand. April is around the corner, and with it, a much happier trend for your workaday, social and financial prospects. Strive through this showery emotional week, and the sunshine will surely follow. Meanwhile, focus on the now.

LOTTERY UK NATIONAL LOTTERY Saturday May 11

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) Scanning the rest of the starsigns, you’ll see that you have many things in common this week: challenging influences at work and play, and during other clogging capers. Unexpected events, finances, or the usual everyday frustrations could pile on the pressure.

Rely on your sixth sense, especially where close-to-you matters are concerned. Give more thought to what you hope to have achieved in 12 months from now. Be patient, especially over personal stresses and strains.

You have people come into your life shockingly and surprisingly. You have losses that you never thought you’d experience. You have rejection and you have to learn how to deal with that and how to get up the next day and go on with it.” Taylor Swift

We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good... Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.” Pope Francis

Neater Heater want ‘squirrels’ as customers RICHARD and Tony from Neater Heater are urging all our readers to start preparing for next winter now. “We really want people to imitate squirrels,” said Tony. “As we know; all the other woodland creatures just laze about in the summer, relaxing. So when the winter comes they have to furiously compete with each other for the scraps left over or hide away and hibernate, waiting for next summer. But not the squirrels! “Squirrels plan for the winter by hoarding nuts, berries and seeds in the summer, so when winter comes they are well prepared for it, and are able to enjoy themselves on those nice

bright winter days when the sun does come out. They are obviously the wisest creatures in the wood. And that is what we want our customers to be.” “What Tony is trying to say,” interjected Richard, “is that when winter finally arrives in Spain, northern Europe has been cold for months. This means that Chilly Czechs, Frozen Fins and Shivering Swedes have been stripping the shelves for months. “Every year we have panicking customers calling us in December, desperate to have heaters supplied and fitted by Christmas. Frequently these customers have to compromise

on their choice, or be put at the back of a long queue. Every year we think to ourselves - ‘It’s a shame you didn’t order them in the summer when we had loads of them in stock and, equally as important, the time to process the orders’.” Neater Heater is the sole Spanish distributor for BEHA, ADAX, and VIGO convector heaters. We currently have more stock than ever before at various locations, just waiting for the ‘squirrels.’ Please feel free to call us on 634 312 171 for more information, or visit our website www.neater heater.es, or email info@neaterheater.es.

By Estelle Mitchell www.thebodyworksclinic.com FOUR out of five people will experience back pain. Chronic lower back pain is becoming a big problem affecting over 18 million people in the UK, preventing many from working. So what is the solution? Lumbar Fusion Surgery? The BackCare charity states that: ‘Very few people require back surgery. Such surgery is only essential when there are extreme symptoms such as a paralysis of the bladder and bowel or loss of power to a foot. Surgery is considered as a last resort in the treatment of back pain.’ Although there are a number of different methods, all involve joining or fusing together two (or more) of the bony discs in the spine so that they no longer move, the theory being that it is the bone movement which causes the pain.

Back pain: What works? What is success? When you think of the criteria for successful surgery what are your definitions? No more pain? Full range of movement? Back to work? Studies show that only 32 per cent of ‘successful’ spinal fusion patients return to work within two years. The charity also says that for stabilisation or fusion operations, ‘there is a 10-20 per cent chance of staying the same and 10-20 per cent risk of being worse or needing further surgery.’ They go on to say that you still may not be completely pain-free after this surgery so there is up to a 40 per cent chance that the operation will not improve matters. A recent lawsuit in the USA deemed that lumbar fusion surgery was successful, even though it left the

Although 75 per cent would recommend it for their patients, only 9 per cent would have the surgery themselves. I guess practise what you preach isn’t an option?? So what are my options? Stay active. Although doctors used to prescribe bed rest for back pain,

keeping moving stops the muscles stiffening up and causing more pain. So stay as active as you comfortably can. (marathons optional!) Ibuprofen and anti-inflammatories can help in the short term. Try to stay away from cortisone and steroid injections as these actually break down the discs and tissues in the spine causing long-term problems. BUPA state that ‘injections are usually only done if

other treatments don’t work.’ Physiotherapy Long-term studies show when it comes to those success criteria I mentioned before, no pain, full range of movement and going back to work, the groups which had only physiotherapy (no surgery) had a much higher success rate. These patients had a greater range of movement, were back to work within six months and had reduced pain. With no risk. A win-win. Personally I believe it is an individualised approach which works, combining a whole range of techniques from acupuncture to osteopathy and through to physiotherapy as well - it’s about finding the combination for YOU.

Get a fresh start – reset your brain READING THE SPAGHETTI: Giving yourself a fresh start.

Joris Plu WITHIN our head is our unique brain, and what a wonderful piece of work. Ever felt that your head was completely full? And I mean not just full but with that weird feeling of it being filled with cooked spaghetti? Lots and lots of it - so much of it that you cannot see things clear anymore. You feel like you are almost not able to make those decisions that are the right ones for you. Feeling blocked and blind. Well, no worries. This happens to everyone on this planet. Hope you feel ok now? And most of the time we can easily read what the spaghetti is trying to say to us. So we can follow the path we want or we need to follow in our special life. Most of the time it all works out well. But

find someone outside your inner circle to help you read what it says. If you are in this stage of your life, your body, soul and mind need a fresh start. So give it to yourself. Give yourself that new fresh start where you will find out who you are at that particular moment in time and what you really want to do in your life. Take a look into a mirror and say to yourself: “Yes, I will give myself a fresh new start right now” … and give yourself a big positive smile. Take good care!

sometimes the head is so full that we are unable to see and feel. The solution in those times is to rethink who we are and what we really want in our life. To reset our brain. Easy, no? So if you are now looking for the reset button somewhere on your head or are

waiting for me to tell you where you can find it, I have to disappoint you. There is no button on the outside of your head. Though it would be fantastic, the button is actually inside your head. Hence the precious word ‘rethink’. You have to take a step

back or stand still for a moment, go to a peaceful and quiet place. Take the spaghetti out of your head, put it in front of you and try to read what it says. Believe in the fact that you are able to read it. And if it is a hard time for you to do so at that moment,

Keep it simple Kate Broadhead Health and Lifestyle coach ONE of the most common reasons for failure when changing the way you eat, is over thinking and over complicating the process. Changing your diet should be straightforward and not feel like ‘work.’ Otherwise you will tire of it and end up back at square one again. The easiest way to get involved in c a rb c yc ling is to unde rs ta nd the food groups. An understanding of what you can eat and what you need to avoid, is all that is really required. As my 72-year-old dad embarked on this way of eating, he didn’t want complicated menus or strict instructions of what to eat, and certainly w o u l d n ’t e n t e r t a i n t r a c k i n g h i s meals in an app on his phone! So I kept it simple. Two lists. One list of foods to eat for five days a week, and another list of what to eat on two days a week. That’s all. By

They stock a wide range of different brands of hearing assistance, different prices and as an independent

Don’t suffer in silence practice do not have any obligation to any manufacturer, but prescribe the most appropriate treatment tailored exactly to the patient’s needs. With specialists who are fluent in English, Spanish, German, Russian, Czech and Afrikaans, Sontec Hear-

ing Centre offers a highly developed, free no-obligation hearing consultation intended to discover what your hearing levels are and to suggest a range of options. The Sontec ethos is to provide and maintain the highest professional

and ethical standards of hearing care. This is achieved through the use of high specification audiological equipment, and all of the staff in the practice follow a rigorous annual programme of further training and deal with customers with utmost honesty and integrity.

Dedicated to being part of the community and helping along the coast as far as Gibraltar, Sontec follows health guidelines from both the Junta de Andalucia and the UK as well as assisting with hearing charities. As supporters of Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Sontec donates a percentage of the income earned from each patient directly to the society and also visits schools in Tetuan on an annual basis to help children, many of whom are profoundly deaf, so any hearing equipment which is no longer needed will be very welcome at the Fuengirola Centre.

Tools of the trade WE have all been told that healthy skin begins with cleansing, toning, and moisturising. However, a new generation of beauty tools means there may be new ways to fight back time and achieve glowing skin. One such tool is the cleansing brush; usually a small, soft-bristled electrical brush designed to be used alongside your cleanser to improve its cleaning powers and boost blood circulation. Foreo’s Luna Play Plus (€49, www.elcorteingles.es) uses sonic technology to deep cleanse, and is completely waterproof. After cleansing, enhance the experience of using a serum or moisturiser by adding a facial roller to your routine. Made from quartz or jade, these cooling stone rollers help massage products in at the same time as aiding the drainage of fluids from the face, resulting

in a de-puffing action. Try using a roller such as White Lotus’s A Grade Jade Facial Roller (currently starting at £14.99/€17.40) starting at the middle of the face and working outwards. Most rollers also come with a smaller head for the eye area, good for soothing tired peepers after a long day. Finally, for the body, a firm brush used in long, upward strokes starting at the feet and working towards the heart has been shown to improve the appearance of cellulite and with skin tone. Experts believe this may be because the motion helps to temporarily alter the appearance of fat cells as well as combatting fluid retention. Try Mama Mio’s The Mio Body Brush (€17, www.lookfantastic.es), which combines rubber nodules with natural boar bristles to get to work on tricky spots.

Respected musician talks to Euro Weekly News by John Smith COMPOSER, musician and singer Bev Lee Harling started to learn the violin at the age of five because she was inspired by her older sister Alison. She explained to Euro Weekly News that she has been a professional musician for all of her adult life, turning from Classical Music to Jazz but she was then involved with the Medieval Baebes, performing and writing on three of their albums. As part of her time with this band which specialised in rediscovering and interpreting songs and poems from medieval times, she learnt to sing in 40 different languages, such as Latin and Manx Gaelic, many of which are now almost defunct. Bev now performs pop up one woman shows around the UK and has also written music for a number of soundtracks but has never performed alongside her sister Alison who is lead

BEV LEE HARLING: More than a Medieval Baebe. violin for Collegium Musicum Costa del Sol. Now, she is delighted that she will be

joining Alison and the orchestra to sing the solo parts of their next presentation of the 13th century hymn Stabat Mater which tells of the suffering of Mary as she watched her son Jesus during the crucifixion and this is often sung as a tribute to ‘Our Lady of Sorrows.’ For this performance, Bev explained that she will be singing in a number of different languages including Aramaic, Hebrew and Latin and that she first simply learnt to reproduce the words and then translated them so that she would be able to give them the true dignity of their meaning. As a musician she loves the sounds of words and wants potential audiences to understand that this is not a Classical piece as such but the version she will be performing, set to the music of contemporary Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, combines elements of Classical alongside World Music so that it becomes a form that is accessible to all. Bev has been a regular visitor to the Costa del Sol to visit Alison and will

be staying with her to allow for two performances alongside the Choir and Orchestra Collegium Musicum Costa del Sol and Camerata Singers of Sotogrande. The first concert will take place on the evening of Sunday May 26 at the Salon Real of Hotel IPV Palace & Spa in Fuengirola with entry costing €12 (free entry for under 16’s) and tickets may be purchased from the hotel, Nicholson’s Jewellers (nr Plaza Constitución), and will be on sale from 7pm at the door, alternatively call 952 775 492/686 277 272 or e-mail info@col mus.org. A further concert will be held on Tuesday, May 28 at 9.30pm in the Church of the Encarnación in Marbella Old Town and is the annual Benefit Concert for the local AIDS Charity, Concordia. Entrance is free on a first come, first seated basis and it is hoped that the audience will leave a generous donation for the charity.

They come with many colours in the air FOR several years, the Holi Colours Festival has taken place in San Pedro Alcantara, but this year it will be free

and open to all. Originally planned to take place last Saturday, the organisers were so overwhelmed with interest that the San Pedro Council decided to commission the company to organise a Holi Colour event on the beach at Playa La Salida on Sunday June 23. As many will know, this is the night of San Juan when people light bonfires on the beach and celebrate the longest day (which takes place on June 21 this year). According to tradition, if

you jump over a bonfire three times on San Juan’s night, you will be cleansed and purified and your problems burned away. This may not be the case in San Pedro as the Holi Colours event is based on a Hindu festival of love where large amounts of different, non-toxic, coloured dies are thrown over those taking part with music feeding the fun. Everyone will be welcome to take part in this fun and colourful event which promises plenty of surprises.

Flashback FLASHBACK is a spectacular journey through the decades covering the 1950s to the 2000s including hits from the Bee Gees, Queen, Bruno Mars, Dusty Springfield and many more. Put together by two local singers who run Club DanSing, Tina Rose and Gemma Lloyd, it will feature performers from the club and special guests from this Friday to Sunday at the Salon Varietes in Fuengirola.

This week Celebrity Chef from Ready Steady Cook & Fellow Master Chef Steven Saunders, proprietor of The Little Geranium in La Cala helps his wife Michele cook on TV.

Come dine with me! Steven Saunders FMCGB The Little Geranium La Cala de Mijas & Marbella www.thelittlegeranium.com

A FEW years ago Michele was asked if she would go on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me. As you may know Michele is a ballet dancer, a fitness and Pilates instructor, my partner and wife, but not really a cook! Channel 4 sold the idea to us as a show that would showcase our little restaurant and that kind of publicity is great especially as we had just opened. For those of you that don’t know Michele… well she can’t cook! To be honest it’s not that she can’t, but that she won’t and doesn’t need to, being married to a chef! So when she told me that she had been chosen I asked what she would like to cook. She immediately said lasagne, that’s because her father is Italian and she knows how to make a great lasagne. She asked me what to do as a

BURRATA: Place on tomatoes and drizzle with oil.

INGREDIENTS for four 2 balls of burrata Mozzarella (cut in half for four) 6 tablespoons of panko breadcrumbs 6 tablespoon plain flour 3 whole eggs beaten 4 juicy ripe Italian tomatoes, skins removed 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 heaped tablespoon of sugar or a flat tablespoon of honey 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil Maldon salt For the Burrata Whisk the eggs and pour into a

starter and I thought that Burrata was a good idea. Burrata is a fresh Italian cow milk cheese (occasionally buffalo milk) made from mozzarella and cream. It can also be a mozzarella filled with butter or a mixture of butter and cream. This explains the original meaning of the word burrata literally ‘buttered’ in Italian. So something very Italian and I gave it a twist by coating the burrata in panko breadcrumbs and deep frying them and then serving on marinated Italian tomatoes and basil oil. It really is a delicious dish. For dessert I suggested a type of Tiramisu made from mascarpone cream with fresh cherries keeping the Italian theme, an easy dish to prepare and very tasty. We tried the dishes out a couple of times at home and even threw a dinner party with Michele cooking the dishes - she really had the winning formula. Michele’s lasagne is excellent especially when it’s made with great quality mince and I had ordered wagyu mince for her to use on the show. On the show was John the drag queen who performs at Legends in La Cala, he is hilarious. Also on was a lady from Marbella who has issues with everything and a young man who was

MICHELE: Well... she can’t cook! in real estate from Puerto Banus. An interesting mix of people, a drag queen, a ballet dancer, a

young entrepreneur and a lady with issues… perfect! The Little Geranium was never mentioned on the transmitted show and unless you knew Michele you would not have known who she was. Sadly Michele came joint second beaten by a dish made from drag queen John. No one is a real foodie on these shows and I think the funniest contender won! Although this was a few years ago I have never had the chance to write about the Come Dine With Me experience. I was recently talking with my friend Dave James who runs Global Radio here in Spain and he said that he was on it a few years ago. He is good friends of Beverley Craven who is currently going through the trauma of breast cancer. She sang her hit song Promise me on his show. It was so beautiful everyone cried! Dave is another one that can’t cook, won’t cook and I’m always cooking for him and his lady Elena here at The Little Geranium, they are a lovely couple. So if you are looking for something a little special or different, do try this panko crumbed burrata served with basil oil, the flavours are amazing… I promise!

Panko fried Burrata, marinated Italian tomatoes, basil oil

clean bowl. P u t the flour in a separate bowl and the breadcrumbs in another separate bowl. Line the bowls up in the following order from left to right: flour, egg and breadcrumbs. The key is maintaining one dry h an d an d o n e w e t ha nd. U s ing your dry hand, place the burrata in the flour and dredge thoroughly;

shake off excess. Using the same hand, gently place it in the egg mixture. With your (soon-to-be) wet hand, submerge the burrata fully and ensure that the entire ball is coated. With the same hand shake off the excess and gently place it in the breadcrumbs. With your dry hand, roll the burrata until fully coated in breadcrumbs. Place on a tray lined with paper tissue. When ready to fry, gently lower the burrata in the hot oil (190ºc) and fry in your deep fryer until golden brown, usually one minute. Put on a tray lined with paper tissue and season with Maldon salt whilst still hot. For the tomatoes Score the tomatoes with a sharp knife and place in a pan of boiling

water for 10 seconds then immediately remove and chill in iced water. Now remove the skins. Slice the skinless tomatoes into at least three slices each and place in a bowl or tray. Mix the olive oil, vinegar, sugar or honey and salt together and pour over the tomatoes. Add the chopped basil and reserve in the fridge for at least two hours For Basil Oil Ingredients 1 large bunch of basil 1 large bunch parsley Approx half a bag of washed spinach 500ml of virgin olive oil Bring a saucepan of water to the boil Drop in the basil, parsley and spinach and leave for 10 seconds.

Remove with slotted spoon and immediately chill in iced water Leave for 30 seconds in iced water then remove and literally wring out the water. Pour the olive oil into your food processor and add the herbs. Whizz on full power for at least three to five minutes until all the green has come out of the herbs into the oil. Pass through a sieve into plastic squirty bottles and reserve To construct dish Remove the tomatoes from marinade onto a clean dry cloth and season with a little Maldon salt Place three slices of tomato into each bowl Place the crispy fried burrata on top of the tomatoes and drizzle with the basil oil. Serve immediately.

TECH FOR THE TIMID REMEMBER that classic Tony Hancock ‘Radio Ham’ sketch, where his new receiver suddenly picks up a distressed ‘Mayday’ call? ‘Mayday? What’s he on about, Mayday, that was weeks ago, it’s June.’ The saddest sight at a recent country fair was a tent of tenacious old codgers trying to interest the young in their amateur radio hobby. Teenagers couldn’t believe that anyone would take all that trouble to talk to someone on-air, when all you need now is a click of the mouse. Buy a simple internet radio and according to one sales blurb, 100,000 stations are at your fingertips. Though sadly it’s a bit like everybody’s favourite TV whinge these days: so many channels, so little to watch. But lurking amidst the many wallpaper stations which clutter the net there are still gems to be found. And what other medium lets us get on with vital everyday duties like stocktaking one-cent coins in the holiday fund jar, or microwave-drying the rain-soaked cat (don’t!), while still exercising our intellect with news from The Voice of

Valium for the ears? Radio is still going strong after 125 years, salutes Terence Kennedy

HAM RADIO: Far simpler on a smartphone. Laryngitis (I kid you not, I found it on the internet the other day). Despite years of predictions, rumours of radio’s death have been greatly exaggerated. The snap, crackle and pop of international shortwave wireless may indeed be heading for

history (unless you still need the estimable BBC World Service in Africa), but radio is reinventing itself with a technological vigour guaranteeing its existence far into this century. Could radio listening even be too easy now?

Writing from the future, the Douglas Adams classic Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy recalls the issue of tuning-in: ‘As radio technology became more sophisticated the controls were made touch sensitive; you merely had to brush the panels with your fingers. Now all you have to do is wave your hand in the general direction of the components and hope. It saves a lot of muscular expenditure of course, but means that you have to sit infuriatingly still if you want to keep listening to the same programme...’ These days we’re pretty blasé about our radio. We’re unlikely to see a repeat of the infamous episode of 1938, when Orson Welles sent hundreds of Americans rushing out into the streets in blind panic during his radio-theatre production of H G Wells’ War of the Worlds - stampeded by the fictitious news bulletin announcing the arrival of Martians in New Jersey. Television was supposed to kill radio. It didn’t. Phones were supposed to kill conversation. They haven’t. Now satellite and the internet are supposed to kill radio. Trust me, they won’t.

This was my second time using HouseSitMatch and it went equally as well. ‘It’s a bit of a leap of faith having someone you don’t know in your house looking after your ‘little people,’ but Lamia and the team work hard to make sure everything is in place and to give advice as and when needed. ‘We weren’t disappointed and we will definitely keep using them.’ Lisa, cat owner, Marbella Register online via our website www.Housesit match.com.

Super bloopers LIVE radio is so gloriously fallible. Take this famous gaffe from an Irish request programme: ‘Now we have a very special greeting,’ the announcer gushed. ‘This next request is for Patrick O’Flanagan, who is, just imagine it, one hundred and eleven today! Oh, no, I beg your pardon, he’s ill...’ Saudi Arabian radio listeners were intrigued at being told there would be no weather for the next 24 hours. Turned out the Met Office was closed. Radio Zambia once managed to announce that ‘The time is now six o’clock Greenwich. Meantime here is the news.’ My all-time favourite on-air clanger also comes from that accident-prone Radio Zambia. Armed with the scores from Britain’s Premier League football, the Saturday sports presenter announced: ‘Here are the English Facup results...’

We are nationally registered by the Spanish Ministry of the Interior (164640) but only with your support can we give the equine a voice. If you can just commit to 2 or 3 euros a month it will really help make a difference. You can find us at Lauro Golf Equestrian Centre, Alqueria, Alhaurin de la Torre.

KENNELS

AT SOS ANIMAL REFUGE we have dogs, young and old looking for homes. Some of our dogs have been with us for some time and would love to find a cosy spot to curl up in and a knee on which to rest their heads. If you have room in your heart and home we would love to hear from you. We do not put our dogs to sleep - no matter how old, they are safe with us. For day to day needs and to pay for veterinary care, we much appreciate the support we receive. We desperately need items to sell on our market stall to help raise funds and are happy to come and collect. So if you are having a clearout, please contact us on 605 227 155. If you would like to know more about rehoming, please call 653 257 875. Visit our website www.sos-animals.org or please phone Sandy on 952 385 923 or 666 814 056 if you would like to make a donation or help in any way.

IT is illegal to beep your horn in New York City, except in an emergency, and drivers who break the rule are liable for a fine worth more than €310.

Honda’s electric pledge HONDA has confirmed it will produce its first fully electric urban vehicle - the rather unimaginative sounding ‘Honda e.’ And it has also said that the next-generation Jazz will be available with a hybrid powertrain featuring the brand’s Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) technology. The manufacturer says that this is part of its ‘Electric Vision’ to make 100 per cent of the brand’s European sales feature electrified powertrains by 2025. The Honda e, which was recently presented as a production prototype in Geneva, is Honda’s first model to benefit from a dedicated EV platform rather than be converted from a traditionally-powered design. This means it is optimised for electric power through its design and technology with no compromises. The compact electric car offers sporty rearwheel drive format and advanced electric powertrain. The Honda e has already

received over 22,000 expressions of interest across Europe, and customers can visit their national Honda website for more information. The i-MMD hybrid system will be available with the next generation of the popular Jazz hatchback has already won widespread acclaim across Europe for delivering high-levels of real-world efficiency and refinement in the new CR-V Hybrid. Ahead of its 2025 electrification goal, Honda will expand the application of its i-MMD dualmotor hybrid system, with the introduction into smaller segment cars an important first step. The next-generation Jazz will make its international premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year.

HONDA FIRST: The manufacturer’s first car designed purely as an EV.

ROAD TEST by Nick Fletcher VOLVO has completely changed the public perception of their brand with a range of new models encompassing svelte style and lots of technology and the latest is the just-launched S60. The new S60 is priced from €44,534 (£37,935) and packages a 250 hp 2.0-litre fourcylinder power unit with signature Volvo styling cues to reveal a smart and sophisticated premium saloon. Built in the United States, the S60 is the first newmodel Volvo with no diesel engine option. My test model was the T5 RDesign Edition and it ably demonstrated it was the perfect

FAST: Abu Dhabi’s newest police car can reach 242mph.

Supercop on the road SUPERCARS are not exactly rare on the streets of oil rich Abu Dhabi. Some of the world’s most powerful and fastest cars cruise the roads of the capital of the UAE, but this gives the local traffic police a bit of a problem. If someone really wants to put their foot down in a McLaren, Ferrari or Lamborghini, how on earth are you going to catch them? Well they have decided that if you want to catch a su-

percar you must use - a supercar. So the latest addition to the Abu Dhabi police fleet is a 750bhp £2 million Lykan Hypersport. Best known for its role in Fast and Furious 7 (when it flew!) just seven of the superluxury cars have ever been built. With a 3.7-litre twin turbo flat six engine it is capable of 242mph, with a 0-62mph time of 2.8 seconds, so fast enough

to keep up with even the most spoiled Arab prince. The doors are rear-hinged and open upwards. The leather has gold thread stitched into it. The LED headlights have diamonds in them and the car has a more suitable paintjob as a police vehicle. W Motors - the Dubai-based manufacturers of the car - only had this to say: “Would you rather be chased or caught by the Special Forces Lykan Hyper Sport?”

Volvo S60 T5 R-Design Edition premium, mile-munching saloon. With a top speed of 233 kph (145 mph) the T5 passes the benchmark 100 kph in just 6.3 seconds. Average fuel economy is 13.1 kpl (37 mpg) with emissions of 155 g/km. Driving the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with paddle shifts, a large Tesla style portrait touch screen offers most of the controls - including an array of connectivity options - and settings including the different drive modes. The dynamic mode really sharpens up the S60’s responses without loss of ride comfort. The shortest of gaps in traffic offers

safe overtaking and on twisting country roads the car’s tight handling capability is demonstrated to great effect. Standard fare across the range includes such items as dual zone climate, Nappa part-leather sports seats, heated front seats, diamond cut wheels, all-round parking sensors, voice activated control system and LED lighting.

Options on the test car were a powered glass tilt and slide panoramic sunroof with sun curtain, heated front screen, larger alloys and superb and almost iridescent Fusion Red metallic paintwork. This package adds €3,375 (£2,875) to the standard list price. The range at the moment consists of one trim level - R-Design Edition -and just one version, the

T5 front drive automatic. Soon to follow will be an all-wheeldrive option, an R-Design Plus entry version and luxurious Inscription Plus trim. In addition to the T5 engine, a T8 twin-engine plug-in hybrid is planned with prices starting at around €57,524 (£49,000). Volvo has a smart, stylish and very sophisticated saloon in the new S60. It continues their success in transforming the brand from solid, dependable workhorse to a desirable premium motoring brand.

HE sunshine is here now, hopefully settled for the summer, and what a pleasure it is to get out a classic car and set off for the hills! That is exactly what well over 80 people did last Saturday by joining in the CCCA May classic car run starting from Venta El Caserio which is on the main A-7 coast road between San Pedro and Estepona. The sun did indeed shine and at one point the the thermostat was showing around 34 degrees. Fabulous weather for May! Crews had enjoyed an excellent breakfast at Caserio, it’s always reliable there, whilst the registration process took place in the capable hands of Carol Giles and Angela Sharp. A most marvellous and eclectic mix of classic, modern classics and even some moderns were gathered in the car park there and of special note were the glorious 1950’s MG TD of Jan and Rokaya Groeneveld and the most beautiful drop-head Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 2 of Tony and Trish Minta. Another fabulous Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible was in attendance driven by Jos van den Hoven and navigated by his lovely wife Gita. Almost 40 cars prepared to head off in the direction of Estepona before leaving the A7 at Km 153 and taking the back road towards Casares and the climb up to the village, passing Venta Garcia, a popular lunch stop on previous CCCA runs. Sadly, the gorgeous 1969 EType Jaguar of Haig Oundijan was in trouble, the electric cooling fans refusing to do their job on the long climb and forcing its owner to return to the coast rather than risk damage to its six-cylinder, 4.2 litre engine. No such problems existed for Clément Eijffinger and his wife Susan in their bright red Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spyder which was positively whizzing along like all Alfa Romeos love to do! Regular CCCA and Gibraltar Classic Vehicle Association members Stefan and Judith had brought their stunning and much travelled Morgan +8 all the way from Gib to participate and were enjoying the summer sunshine as were everyone. From Casares the route headed towards Gaucin and a fuel

many stopped to admire the view and take photographs. Just as the route turned off to head down the A-373 to Cortes de la Frontera, came the first of

two stops, this one for coffee or a beer and a tapa at Venta Solera. This place is always much enjoyed as the owner there is famous for his game or venison-filled sausages that are so cheap to buy. A wise choice for a stop by run organiser, Ian Giles. From here the route went via the old town of Cortes de la Frontera and looped around through spectacular countryside with wild flowers in abundance

to arrive back on the A-369 Ronda-Algeciras road at Atajate. The faster cars really were able to ‘stretch their legs’ on the next, very quick, section across the top of the fabulous A-369 to Ronda where the route turned south to head down the very long descent to San Pedro. Often coaches are a problem here and cause traffic to bunch up and crawl down the hill, but no such problems were evident.

Progress was stopped however, by a Giles-style ‘pit-stop’ for a small glass of Cava and a chance for crews to relax and enjoy the sunshine and each other’s company before completing the final, short 14Km run down to lunch. A first class menu was served by Michelle and her staff at Prado restaurant in the Monte Halcones centre just above San Pedro. The restaurant had opened especially this Saturday for the CCCA and it was agreed by all that the food served was superb and also excellent, professional service to go with it. I am sure many CCCA members will be returning! The next event for the CCCA will be a display of classic cars in Mijas Pueblo this coming Saturday. The event will be in support of the art exhibition by famous artist Kelly Fischer in the town hall there and so the Club will have around 20 cars on show. Non-members will be very welcome to come along, see the cars and enjoy a chat with members before they all go off to lunch in the Pueblo, leaving the cars on show for the duration. The week after this, May 25, sees the JEC (Jaguar Owners Club) continue their programme of events with a car run and lunch. I will have more on that in our next issue. That’s it from me until the next time!

Further information on Classic Car Club of Andalucia events can be found on the Club’s website www.cccandalucia.com. Membership of this vibrant club is open to anyone owning a genuine classic car here in Spain. Saca tu coche clásico del garaje y diviértete con el.

Reds in Marbs

LIVERPOOL will prepare for their Champions League final clash with Tottenham at their favourite warm weather training camp - Marbella. It has been revealed they will return to the Costa del Sol city for a week in the lead up to the final, which is to be played in Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1. According to the UK’s Evening Standard the squad will fly in on Monday as the club prepares for the big match. It is thought manager Jurgen Klopp had been toying with the idea of using Mallorca this time out, but the lure of Marbella won out in the end. It is the same location Liverpool used for a camp before last season’s Chanpions League final, but the club will be hoping for better luck this time round. Last year they lost out in a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev. Liverpool returned to Marbella in February for a mid-season break as they tried to recharge their batteries for the Premier League battle back home. Ultimately they were pipped to the post by Manchester City. The club is bidding to win its sixth Champions League trophy, while Tottenham has never made a final before. Spurs were the first British team to win a major European trophy when they beat Atletico Madrid 5-1 in the final of the Cup Winners Cup in 1963.

Celebrations turn to horror THE celebrations to mark Real Sociedad’s victory in the Copa de Reina (Queen’s Cup) turned to horror when club captain Sandra Ramajo had to be rushed to hospital following an epileptic fit. The Sociedad women’s team had the night before beaten Atletico Madrid 2-1 in Granada to claim their first Copa del Reina and on Sunday were showing their fans the trophy in their home stadium in San Sebastian. The team had already undertaken a tour of the city and were now thanking fans in the Anoeta Stadium. Ramajo was signing autographs when she went into seizures, with members of the public taking care of her until the club’s medical team arrived. She was then rushed to Donostia Hospital where she is recovering. The final itself broke records for a televised women’s football match in Spain. It had an average audience of 1.66 million and a peak of 2.2 million giving Telecinco a 14.4 per cent share of the viewing figures.

By Dilip Kuner WHILE FC Barcelona have long since been crowned champions of La Liga, there is still lots to play for in the final round of matches. The questions of who will qualify for next season’s Champions and Europa Leagues is still to be decided while the last relegation spot will probably be taken by Girona, unless there is an improbable combination of results. At the weekend fourth placed Getafe had to travel to Barcelona, where they suffered a 2-0 reverse. The home team were booed onto the pitch in response to their 4-0 loss to Liverpool last week, which denied them a Champions League final spot. Leonel Messi made the pass for Arturo Vidal’s opening goal with an 89th minute own goal from Mauro Arambarri completing the scoring. The result opened the way for Valencia to move into the final Champions League place, which they duly did with a 3-1 win at home to Alaves. If they win away to Valladolid at the weekend they will claim the coveted spot. Alaves gave Valencia a scare when they rook a 12th minute lead through Ximo Navarro, but goals from Carles Soler, Santi Mina and

OPENER: Arturo Vidal scored the first as Getafe went down to Barcelona. Kevin Gameiro ultimately made it a comfortable victory. Sevilla really needed a win to keep in contention for the CL. Pablo Sarabia’s 70th minute goal gave them a decent enough 1-1

draw away to second placed Atletico Madrid, so they retain an outside chance of finishing fourth, but they will need to hope both Getafe and Valencia lose at the weekend. Athletic Club Bilbao remain

Celta. Espanyol beat Leganes 2-0 away with goals from Borja Iglesias and they too have the chance of seventh and a Europa League spot if they can beat Real Sociedad and Athletic lose. That won’t be easy though as Real Sociedad themselves have the chance for seventh if they bear Espanyol following their 3-1 home win over the not so mighty Real Madrid. Brahim Diaz scored his first goal for Real Madrid in just the sixth minute, but it turmed into another poor performance from the Madrid club. Mikel Merino equalised 20 minutes later, then Jesus Vallejo was sent off in the 39th minute to leave Real Madrid with 10 men. Igor Zubeldia headed Real Sociedad ahead in the 57th minute and 17-year-old Ander Barrenetxea wrapped it up with the third goal. Girona’s 2-1 loss to Levante has left them clinging on to survival by their fingertips. They must now win away to Alaves by at least five goals and hope Celta lose at home to Rayo Vallecano.

BARCELONA’S hockey team has been knocked out of the European championship after losing to Portugal’s Porto on Saturday, which was decided by a penalty shootout and goal from Helder Nunes.

to read more visit www.euroweeklynews.com

AT the end of qualifying Lewis Hamilton must have been wondering what had happened. His hungry young teammate Valtteri Botas - winner in Azerbaijan - had comprehensively outperformed him to take the Barcelona F1 pole position. And it wasn’t as if he had just been pipped either. Bottas had put in a superb performance to be more than half a sercond faster than the reigning champion, an absolute chasm in F1. But when the chips are down Hamilton knows how to perform. A cracking start saw him squeeze into the lead on the first corner - and he stayed in front all the way to the chequered flag. Truth to be told it was not the most exciting race. Barcelona does not offer many overtaking opportunities and a flawless drive by Hamilton didn’t give anyone else even a sniff of a chance.

Master Hamilton shows how it’s done

UNSTOPPABLE: Mercedes took a fifth one-two in a row. This was his third Spanish Grand Prix in a row and Mercedes’ fifth one-two in succession. It is difficult to see any team except Mercedes take the constructors’ championship this season. Ferrari’s hopes of breaking Mercedes’ dominance were

Nadal’s wait goes on

proven to be rather forlorn. An engine and aerodynamics upgrade did not do the hoped-for trick, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen making their day even worse when he held on to third place. The Ferrari pair of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc were WHILE one tennis great continued his comeback, another has been left waiting the longest for his first title in a season for 14 years. Novak Djokovic’s 6-3, 6-4, win against young Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Mutua Madrid Open final was made all the sweeter for the world number one by two statistics. Not only was it his 200th victory against a top 10 opponent (200 wins against 90 losses), it was also his 33rd

fourth and fifth, Verstappen maintaining his record of having finished ahead of at least one Ferrari at every race this season. Pierre Gasly was sixth in the second Red Bull, with Kevin Magnussen eventually claiming a fine seventh place and his first ARP Masters 1000 title. This means he is now tied with Rafa Nadal at the top of the table of most wins at the elite level. But for the latter, his loss against Tsitsipas in the semi-final meant an unwelcome record continuing. Nadal - still world number two - is yet to win a trophy this season, the longest he has gone before winning in any season since 2004. And with the clay court season - his strong point well under way he most certainly would have expected

points since Australia. Haas teammate Romain Grosjean claimed his first point of the year by finishing 10th after being passed by the McLaren of Carlos Sainz (eighth) - who maintained his record of scoring at every Spanish Grand Prix of his career -

and the Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat, who finished ninth. Next up is Monaco in two weeks’ time where overtaking is even harder than it is in Barcelona. Bottas will be hoping to claim his fourth pole in a row, and to keep his lead beyond the first corner!

to have a title by now. He actually hasn’t been playing too badly with five semi-finals under his belt, but much more is expected of him from his legion of followers. Nadal himself is taking the drought phlegmatically. Speaking to ATPtour.com he said: “I think that it’s more normal what is happening right now, than what happened in the past 14 years. “I think I have tennis ahead of me. I have time ahead of me. I’ll be able to

try to win this kind of tournament that I was not able to win this year. And what I have to do is to be fit and to play properly and a high tennis level. “If I manage to do that next year, I think I will still have a very good opportunity to fight for all of these titles and for the rest of the year, I still have two [clay-court] tournaments. And we will see what happens there.” Djokovic on the other hand is on top form, with this being his third triumph in Madrid (he also won in 2011 and 2016.) Speaking on court after his victory he said: “These are the best tournaments, biggest tournaments we have in our sport, in the ATP, of course alongside the Grand Slam. “This is as important and as good as it gets.”
