46 VIBRANT CITY: The stunning Guggenheim Museum reflects the light over the Ria de Bilbao.

THE BEATING HEART OF BASQUE COUNTRY The city of Bilbao has evolved from a looming grey industrial port in the 1970s to a cosmopolitan hive of culture, architecture and history that is a must see for anyone visiting the north of Spain. SINCE the economic crisis crippled the country around 30 years ago, Bilbao has undergone a journey of rebirth to cement its place as one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Bilbao enlisted the help from famous architects and inventors such as Frank Gehry, Sir Norman Foster and Santiago Calatrava to transform the infrastructure of the city into modern day works of art, whilst still maintaining the rich heritage

that formed the bedrock of the capital of the Basque Country. Perhaps the most famous of the sights is the Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum. Built in 1997 the titanium construction was revolutionary, transforming the look of the river banks. Today it houses works from artists such as Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons, Eduardo Chillida, Yves Klein and Anslem Kiefer. Bilbao is also known for its culinary de-

Temperatures drop SHOWERS are predicted to continue throughout the week as temperatures are beginning to drop over the Costa Blanca. The thunderstorms which arrived over the last week as predicted by Aemet over the region of Murcia, will continue until the end of this week as the temperatures continue to decrease. Weather experts have warned of light showers arriving along the coast resulting in a cloudy but relatively dry week. With temperatures now predicted to be around the 27 to 29 degree mark in the areas of Cartagena, Lorca and Murcia and around Torrevieja, Orihuela and Guardamar del Segura, the temperatures are much the same with highs of 29 and lows down to just 24 degrees with showers from Wednesday until Saturday. This means the cooler days are now upon us following the warm spells which took temperatures to 42 degrees in some parts of Spain last month.

Whether you enjoy walking around architectural wonders such as the Cathedral de Bilbao, the Azkuna Zentroa or the Museo Bellas Artes or want to take things easy, soaking up the culture in the beautiful Plaza Nueva, Bilbao is a city you can’t help but fall in love with.

Tourism down THIS July saw the fall of tourism in the Costa Blanca hot spots including, Torrevieja, Guardamar del Segura and Playa Flamenca. With fewer holidaymakers visiting, although this did not affect the spending which rose by 2.2 per cent on last year’s figure. Competition from cheaper destinations has contributed to the fall in tourism in the popular hotspots along Spain’s White Coast. According to figures from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE), a total of 9.9 million foreign tourists came to the country last July, this year those figures have fallen by 1.3 per cent. This is the second consecutive year that the figures have begun to decline in July and is mostly down to the reduced visits from both the UK and Germany. Meanwhile spending is on the rise by 2 per cent with approximately €11.98 billion being spent during the month of July.

Contagious canine cough VETS in the Camposol have warned dog owners of an outbreak of a cough amongst canines in the area, commonly known in Spanish as ‘dog pound cough’ (or Infectious canine tracheitis or tracheabronchitis). This warning has risen after a number of cases reported in the area. The condition, usually not harmful to dogs in the long term, is however highly contagious, but fortunately not transmittable to humans. It can in some serious but rare cases lead to pneumonia in canines. Concerned owners are advised to take their pets to the vets should they show any signs, which include sneezing, hoarseness, nasal breathing, and coughing. Some owners have describes the symptoms as though their pet is choking on something or like their collar is too tight. The cause of the virus is mainly due to animals being around other dogs such as in the pound, as well as stress, exposure to smoke and cold temperatures.

Swarms of Mosquitoes FOLLOWING on from the re cent wet weather along the Costa Blanca there has reportedly been an abundance of mosquitoes all over the coast. Mosquitoes breed in water, so when the rain falls it increases the amount of mosquitoes both throughout the day and evening. A British woman who was holi-

daying in Torrevieja told Euro Weekly News how her bites became inflamed and infected during her stay. “My legs began to swell up and turned really red, hard and sensitive to the touch,” she said. The Brit went to seek medical advice from a local pharmacy but they were only able to provide cream to reduce the swelling and calm the itch.

Corvera flights cancelled

SWOLLEN: British holidaymaker has nasty reaction to numerous mosquito bites whilst on holiday in Torrevieja.

RYANAIR has cancelled flights from Leeds Bradford to Murcia Airport, Corvera. The airline blames the late delivery of their new Boeing MAX aircraft. Customers of the airline have complained of December flights to Murcia being cancelled without prior warning, causing problems for those who have booked flights ahead of time for Christmas celebrations with family. Although the period from November 9 onwards is quiet for holidaymakers, the airport traffic can be rather hectic leading up to Christmas, with expats flying home or abroad. Some of the flights cancelled were pre-booked meaning that the price when the original booking was made

would be considerably less than what a new short notice booking will cost to replace flights. The flights currently affected are flights leaving Leeds Bradford Airport to Corvera, leaving Alicante the only other option for many flyers offered by the airline. Ryanair has declined to comment or confirm if other routes may be affected. The now ‘late’ delivery of the new aircraft, Boeing MAX was announced in July with the airline stating, ‘A number of Ryanair bases will be cut or cancelled this winter, we are working hard to minimise the impact to our customers and our people, and to continue as many routes as possible, which will be served by flights from other bases.’

HYBRID: The council have opted for a more economic upgrade to the city council’s vehicles.

New Council Vehicles ORIHUELA Council has renewed its fleet of vehicles with the incorporation of 29 new vehicles. The mayor of Orihuela, Emilio Bascuñana and the mayor of Parque Movil, José Galiano, have presented the new vehicles to be incorporated into the existing fleet ‘with the aim of replacing most of the older vehicles, thus meeting a need and demand of different municipal areas."’ By renting 29 new vehicles over a period of 60 months (five years), divided into five lots represents significant advantages for the council in terms of ‘the reduction of pollutant gases as more than half of the vehicles are hybrids, as well as savings in fuel, insur-

ance and maintenance of them,’ explained Jose Galiano. The first batch consists of 14 Toyota vehicles with a total cost of €201,600. The second lot consists of a vehicle, Ford Mondeo, for €28,000. The third lot has 10 five-seater vans, worth €160,000. There are three two-seater Ford vehicles at a cost of €44,000 while the last lot consists of a two-seater van, model Citroën Jumpy, valued at €22,000. The new vehicles have already been assigned to the different areas to which they will become part and replacing at least a third of the current fleet. They will be used by the following departments: Social Welfare, Tourism, Festivities, Sports, Infrastructures, Beaches, Statistics, Health, General

Services and Mayor’s Office, Environment, Modernisation, Urbanism and Employment. The mayor of Orihuela has stressed that “it is the largest investment in fleet made so far by the council and is an example of good management made in the previous legislature that is completed at the start of this.” Bascuñana added that “we will continue to update the fleet of vehicles to modernise the entire fleet of vehicles of the council” and that “it was necessary to carry out the investment to ensure first and foremost the safety of workers because the vehicles are a working tool,” pointing out the new vehicles have the latest technologies in road safety.

BEAUTIFUL: The breathtaking ariel view of the Mar Menor Lagoon.

Pollution in Lagoon THIS summer there has been growing concern over the quality of water in the lagoon at Mar Menor, with levels of chlorophyll and nutrients reportedly rising and the clarity of the sea falling. Recently the concern has grown after experts warn of the possibility of a repeat algal bloom which turned the Mar Menor a greenish colour in 2016. A report published by the experts currently looking into the effects on

the lagoon warn the ecosystem is ‘seriously deteriorated and a long way from recovering.’ Not only will this threat have an influence on the eco system but may affect the tourism in the popular tourist destinations of Mar Menor and La Manga which bring in trade for hotels, restaurants and resorts. The town hall of Cartagena is taking steps to try to prevent this from happening, with one idea to pump water away from the lagoon to stop the possible contamination from local farms.

It’s for fun, nothing taken too seriously, the idea is for older players to have fun and get fit. The day after the 100th session the club had a get together at Lounged (one of their sponsors), who laid on a wonderful buffet for everyone. Around 20 players and families took part and were also entertained in the square by live music. Lots of drinks, lots of food and lots of chat among wonderful friends. The club would like to say ‘A big thank you to the players, who keep turning up every week to make our club the great success that it has become.’

The driver was inspected at a checkpoint by the Guardia Civil, who denounced him for posing a serious risk to road safety. Guardia Civil officers had intercepted the 59-

In addition, he tested positive for alcohol at a rate of 0.41 mg/l in exhaled air and they discovered that he had a driving licence which had expired more than 10 years ago. The officers immobilised

The intensity of the wind could cause problems to anyone caught at sea this week, authorities have been put on high alert for those braving the sea during the high storms. The most intense rainfall was predicted for Tuesday night over the Balearic Islands, while Wednesday was set to be the most severe in the Valencian communities. In flood prone areas it has been predicted that precipitation accumulations will be in the region of 100 - 500mm in large areas, but with the intense wind this could displace the maximum rainfall to other areas.

BREXIT BRIEF

BREXIT EXTRA

Shut down halts Brexit debate THE suspension of Parliament this week has put business on hold while the Government seeks to avoid delaying Brexit. On Monday Parliament was prorogued until October 14 after the Queen approved the suspension requested by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

But not before legislation banning a no-deal Brexit received Royal Assent. Downing Street is now consulting lawyers to find a way to defy MPs who last week passed a

Impeach PM call CALLS have been made for the Prime Minister to be impeached if he pursues a no-deal Brexit. The Welsh party Plaid Cymru has made the call to prevent Boris Johnson by-passing the vote by Parliament to prevent the UK leaving Europe without a deal. A UK Prime Minister has never been successfully impeached, but Mr Johnson was among those who called for Tony Blair to be impeached in 2004. Impeachment would allow Parliament to bring a Prime Minister to trial for high treason if he refuses to abide by the will of Parliament. The impeachment proposal was put forward by Plaid Cymru’s Westminster leader Liz Saville Roberts. She said: “Boris Johnson has already driven a bulldozer through the constitution so no longer are ideas like impeachment farfetched.”

law making it illegal for the Prime Minister to end talks with Brussels without a deal. Boris Johnson has said he would rather be ‘dead in a ditch’ than plead for an extension to the October 31 deadline. Although the Prime Minister insists he does not want to leave without a deal and is convinced he can reach an agreement, he has pledged to leave the EU ‘come what may.’ Mr Johnson attempted once again to call a snap General Election, but the opposition remained firm in its demands that the law be passed first. At the same time, Mr Johnson was meeting with the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in a bid to break the ‘back stop’ deadlock. The Taoiseach invited Boris Johnson for talks for the first time since he took the Downing Street job. Mr Vardakar warned the UK Prime Minister that there was ‘no such thing’ as a clean break with the EU, but Mr Johnson said a no-deal would be a failure that the Irish Government would bear responsibility for as well as the British Government. The back stop is a mechanism to avoid a hard Irish border. Mr Johnson has said he will not sign a deal that includes the back stop, but will never introduce checks at the Northern Ireland border.

BRITS now more than ever have been seeking new lives in the sun. Since the start of 2018 there were 5,947,106 immigrants living in Spain. The amazing weather, relaxed lifestyle and a lower cost of living are just a few reasons people choose to emigrate to Spain. Costa Blanca has proved to be the most popular destination for British expats to relocate to, with an average of 320 days of sun a year it’s no surprise. The Costa Blanca covers 120 miles of coastline stretching from Gandia in the north down to Murcia in the south. Costa Blanca North has a more mountainous terrain, hilly and green, home to places such as Javea while Costa Blanca South is flatter with hotter temperatures and excellent sandy beaches such as those of Guardamar del Segura, Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa. There are many reasons Brits choose the Costa Blanca, but there are a few villages and towns that have proved popular with the expat residents. Elche, a historic town just outside of Alicante (also known as Elx) famous for its palm trees groves and shoe factory. The Elche Palm Grove ‘Mil Palmeras’ was proclaimed a heritage site by UNESCO in 2000 and is home to over 200,000

palm trees. Elche has a rich history having been inhabited by the Greeks, Romans and Moors who have influenced the city’s architecture. Guardamar del Segura is home to an 11km

stretch of white sandy beaches as well as large areas of pine trees. In July and August the population of Guardamar doubles when tourists from all over Europe come to take advantage of

the beautiful beaches. The main inhabitants include those from places such as Britain, Scandinavia, and Western Europe. Rojales is home to several champion golf courses in the area such as, La Marquesa which is popular with expats in the neighbouring towns of Benijofar and Ciudad Quesada also with large expat communities. Rojales is also home to many traditional cave homes, some of which are open to the public with music and art displays. The town has a local museum and becomes a hive of activity when the weekly market takes place next to the river. The seaside resort of Torrevieja is a popular tourist destination due to its sandy beaches and famous pink salt lakes. Torrevieja, originally a salt mining and fishing town is located inbetween the two salt large lakes and home to a vast variety of multicultural restaurants and bars and is often a second home to many Spanish people who travel to the town during the holiday seasons. Villamartin is another popular golf destination with courses close by such as Campoamor and Las Ramblas. The town is also a popular place for families with an excellent school close by, El Limonar, which follows the British curriculum and has been named one of the best schools in Spain.

Demolition of prison wall NEW owners of the San Anton prison have plans to demolish part of one of the symbols of the brutality of the Civil War. The regional High court has temporally suspended the proposal to demolish part of the old prison in Cartagena to allow time for an application to declare the building an item of cultural interest to go through. The jail, originally built in 1935 and the only prison in Spain to be built between 1931 - 1939, with tales of brutality during the Civil War including cases of sexual abuse and torture make some residents prefer the building stay unused, whereas some others believe it is a ‘historical memory’ of the city. A decision was made prior to allow part of the internal walls to be demolished, however the decision to allow the demolition of the five exterior walls is yet to be determined.

Passenger Flies Plane A PASSENGER on board an easyJet flight reportedly flew the plane to Spain when the pilot went ‘missing.’ On board a Manchester flight to Alicante, travelling with his wife and son, qualified easyJet pilot Michael Bradley had taken along his ID and licence to the airport after hearing that the flight may be delayed by at least two hours. Michael shocked the passengers on board when he made his way to the cockpit to fly the plane. He was hailed as a ‘legend’ when he told frustrated passengers he would offer his services to stop the flight from being cancelled or facing further delays amid a pilot shortage. In a video shared on Facebook by Michelle Potts, Michael can be seen making the announcement over the tannoy system. He later told press he called easyJet and said he was “standing in the terminal doing nothing.” He said that “I have got my licence with me deliberately from being punched in the back of the head at 3am by my wife who said ‘our flight’s delayed by two hours,’ and I’d very much like to go on holiday and if you need a favour I’m standing here ready to go.” easyJet bosses called Michael back within minutes to give him the go ahead to fly the plane. easyJet stated ‘we are grateful to one of our pilots who was travelling on holiday from Manchester to

Red Flag WITH the recent change of weather some beaches have been issued with a red flag warning this weekend, meaning the sea was out of bounds for many swimmers due to the high winds causing harsh seas and dangerous currents unsafe for swimming along the Costa Blanca South. The red flag was issued on beaches such as Playa de la Glea, Cala Capitan, Bosque, Cala Cerrada, La Estaca and La Mosca Playa. A yellow flag was issued in Mil Palmeras, B R u b i o M a r, P l a y a Aguamarina and Punta Prima.

Fines for water containers HOMEOWNERS have been warned they could be facing fines for leaving containers of water outside of their property, in an attempt to combat the scourge of tiger mosquitoes along the coast. Fines of between €25 €3,000 will be dished out to citizens who neglect the warnings. The larvae of the tiger mosquitoes only needs a small amount of water in which they can reproduce, such as plant pots and bottle or containers of water left outdoors. And thanks to the recent warm weather the blood-sucking insect has managed to breed all over the coast of Spain causing a nuisance to many residents and holidaymakers who have been suffering with infections from bites. There’s a particular concern to the spread of viral diseases such as Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya, all of which follow with fever like symptoms and high temperature. The

WITH the amount of mosquitoes causing problems the councils in Torrevieja have been fumigating areas in order to try and reduce the amount of ‘pests.’ However residents are concerned about the ‘poison’ they believe is contaminating the land, the air that they breathe and the environmental impact of disturbing the ecosystem.

NEWS

Poisoned A walk through the birdrich area may reveal purple martins, swallows, geese, terns, ducks and migratory songbirds, birds that eat mosquitoes. Bats too eat mosquitoes,

and with bats being protected in Spain as they face extinction, so the usage of the fumigation needs to be balanced against the impact of removing or poisoning a food source. Torrevieja faces a dilemma, as the homes and businesses were constructed around the natural park land. Those living closer to the lakes have complained for years, and the town hall has contracted a private company to spread poison to control the annoyance, but environmentalists have already noticed a reduction in some species of birds visiting the area. It will perhaps come as a surprise that in Torrevieja it is the environmentally focused 'Los Verdes' who reportedly kicked up a stink demanding fumigation earlier last week. The fumigations have taken place in areas that have received the most complaints, Elche being one of those.

RECOVERED: Different substances were found on a search of the vehicle, including pepper spray.

Car Chase SUNDAY morning Murcia police chased a car which failed to stop after driving dangerously and recklessly through Atalayas, Murcia. The car sped along the streets but was

later stopped and the driver was found to be driving under both the influence of alcohol and drugs. Substances were found in the car when searched, including a pepper spray banned in Spain.

We have had frank conversations and I have learned a lot about what matters to our citizens living here, and how people feel.

It is important citizens take action to ensure that they can access the rights laid out in that decree: registering for residency, checking that they are covered for healthcare, checking their passport is valid for travel and exchanging their UK driving licence for a local one.” Sue Wilson, Chair of Bremain in Spain said: “It was a pleasure to meet the Ambassador and his staff, and to discuss ongoing collaboration in the best interests of our members. We are encouraged by the depth of understanding of the issues we face, and of

the anxiety caused by the ongoing political situation. “Clearly there is a willingness and determination to provide much-needed guidance and information, and I look forward to working together further to achieve those aims.” Debbie Williams, Founder, Brexpats - Hear our Voice said: “I was delighted to meet Mr and Mrs Elliott, Mr Milen and the consular team.

Donating blood in Spain 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. In Spain, Blood Components and Services are provided by 17 Regional Blood Transfusion Services. Despite their autonomous operations management, every regional service is fully incorporated into a unique and common Public National Health System, supplying a cohesive blood transfusion care to all citizens, residents, and visitors in Spain based on 100 per cent voluntary and non-remunerated blood donation. For more general information, visit www.msps.es. Anyone who has lived continuously in the UK between 1980 and 1996 (a minimum of one year) will not be able to donate blood in Spain due to the risk of transmitting mad cow disease. Similarly, there are restrictions if you have received a blood transfer in the UK. However, each region may have different rules about donation. Call the donation helpline on 935 573 500. Alternatively, visit www.donorsang.gencat.cat to find out if you are eligible. If you are eligible, you can give blood at your local hospital, or via the Spanish Red Cross (Cruz Roja) at one of their clinics, or in one of their mobile units. You can check dates and locations by visiting www.donarsangre.org. A donor card is not necessary to give blood. On the first visit you will have to provide DNI, NIE, passport or a driving licence. If you are already registered in the Blood Bank, you only need a donor card or a document with your name and surname. The process of blood donation takes just 10 minutes in which 450 ml are collected (equating to 10 per cent of the total blood circulation of an adult person). Despite huge technological advances, the only way for hospitals to obtain blood is through the generosity of the public. The blood is carefully screened for disease to make sure it is safe. After a tattoo, you must wait four months to be eligible to donate. After surgery, the exclusion period will depend on the type of intervention. After minor surgical procedures, you cannot donate blood for seven days or until you are fully recovered. After undergoing major surgery, you will not be able to donate blood for four months. The rarest blood type is AB, present in 1 per cent of Caucasians, according to research by the America Red Cross. Blood transfusions are carried out daily in Spanish hospitals with more than 6,200 patients being given them, of whom almost a quarter are fighting cancer and a similar figure receiving transfusions during or after surgery. Spain has around two million donors in total, but needs closer to four million. This information is for guidance only, and should not be taken as legal advice. If in any doubt, seek professional help.

Volunteers always needed.

IF you are an active and friendly person aged between 16 and 60 then you could be exactly the sort of person that the Benijofar Civil Protection organisation is looking for. The community needs a regular influx of new blood into its highly successful Civil Protection group and not only can you help others, there are some great opportunities for those who join. You will be trained at no cost to you in a number of disciplines which will allow you to give assistance in case of emergencies and the information will stay with you forever. When you complete your training, you will

receive a certificate confirming that you had been working as a trained volunteer and this will be of assistance if you ever decide to apply for a job with the Local or National Police, Guardia Civil, Fire Brigade or Military Service. Even if that isn’t of importance to you, you will be involved in assisting any and all of these bodies at selected sports events, rescue and salvage operations, as well as being involved in crowd safety at public events.

Making life easier THE Benijofar Council is committed to making it much easier for people of all types and ages to be able to walk around the town safely and without

finding barriers in the way. Utilising an earlier €5,088 grant from the Provincial Council of Alicante, officers have

been judging what type of changes need to be made and who is most affected by poor public access. Those who need consideration include those with registered disabilities, pregnant women, people with pushchairs and ver y young children as well as the elderly who may find it difficult to walk. Some of the major problems include high pavements, broken paving stones, lack of slopes for crossings, improper parking on pavements, badly sited street furniture, overgrown trees, lack of easy to read signage, shortage of alternatives to stairs in public buildings and too few disabled parking spaces. Once the investigation is complete then a plan will be put into place to ensure that Benijofar is easily accessible for all.

Torrevieja THE Spanish fishing championship (Corcheo-Mar) is being contested at the Paseo del Dique de Levante in Torrevieja port on September 20 to 22. More than 80 fishermen from all over Spain including the islands are expected to take part in this important competition and amongst the anglers will be no less than four European champions. Rules are very strict and those taking part have just three rounds each lasting three and a half hours to catch as many fish as possible. Rods may not measure more than eight metres in length and hooks must be at least 12 millimetres long and five millimetres wide. Only fish measuring 12 centimetres or more may be accepted for the weigh in and if any are presented which are shorter than that, their weight will be deducted from the final score. Those who live locally will be pleased to know that every angler is responsible for leaving their competition area clean and tidy at the end and if they don’t, then they risk disqualification.

A fishy story

GREEN PARTY: Councillors Israel Muñoz and Carmen Morate.

Pests and rubbish LOS VERDES (LV, the Green Party in Torrevieja) have questioned why the local council has not taken action to attack the twin problems of cockroaches and mosquitoes. They argue that there are a number of areas in the town which are suffering from infestations of these insects and that unlike other local councils

the ruling Partido Popular (PP) council in Torrevieja is not taking the problem seriously. The Greens have particularly singled out developments closest to the lagoon of Las Salinas and have accused the council of fine words but a lack of action, especially as recent rain has helped the mosquitoes to breed in large numbers.

The Greens, who lost control to the PP in this year ’s election have also complained about the quality of street cleaning and rubbish disposal claiming that the actual state of the streets are getting increasingly worse rather than better, despite the fact that an ‘emergency plan’ was supposed to inject a further €117,000 in to the cleaning budget.

NEWS

Getting to school AFTER receiving a number of enquiries from worried parents about the quality of the school transport system, the Torrevieja Council has announced that from September 2020 it will introduce a completely new programme. Currently the transport system is managed by a local division of AMPAS (Asociación de Madres y Padres de Alumnos), but the council intends to take over the management and financially support a new system next year. They have recognised that the cost for this year has been under-budgeted and will endeavour to find some additional funds to support assistance in particular for children from households which are experiencing financial difficulty. With the new system next year, the council will approach residents who have problems rather than wait for them to contact the council.

Appy times are here SPAIN’S ‘app economy’ has not stopped growing since the Apple App Store was launched in 2008. According to the latest technology data, jobs related to iOS apps have grown 26 per cent in Spain since 2016. In total, 77,000 direct and indirect jobs related to the App Store have been generated in the last 11 years. According to the data published by Ap­ ple, Spain ranks fifth in Europe in coun­ tries experiencing the greatest impact on their economy viaiOS apps.

By Dilip Kuner By city, Madrid and Barcelona are among the 15 most prominent European cities in this section. The Catalan capital is in seventh place, with a total of 32,000 jobs directly or indirectly related to the online store. For its part, Madrid ranks 11th, with 25,000 jobs. Apple claims to have created more than 1.5 million jobs in Europe since 2008. “In this time, European developers have created some of the most exciting apps in the world, connecting with customers in 155 countries, and have earned €25 bil­

lion in revenue from sales on the App Store. Nine out of 10 euros earned by Eu­ ropean developers come from overseas sales,” the company said. Today, applications have become a fundamental part of the smartphone business, whether on Apple mobile phones or Android operating systems. Ac­ cording to the consulting firm App Annie, the second quarter of this year has seen the highest number of downloads and spending per consumer to date. Con­ sumer spending surpassed $22.6 billion worldwide in this period, a 20 per cent in­ crease over the previous year.

LEGALLY SPEAKING Can they get a quorum? I have always thought that for an AGM, there has to be attendance of 51 per cent, including proxies. At our recent meeting we had only 25 per cent. It was then announced, ‘Therefore, the majori­ ty required to pass resolutions is not met, due to ab­ sence of the remaining co­ owners, despite being summoned legally.’ Our problem is that there are very few permanent residents and never many visit­ ing owners. C C (Costa Blanca) Standard­ ly, the first announcement YOU AND THE of the AGM gives LAW IN SPAIN the time and the place, and also notes that if there is not a quorum of voters present, the meeting will be held at ‘second call­ ing’ half an hour after the first call. The law says that a quorum to pass resolutions is 51 per cent of the owners just as you point out. The law also says that, if this number of owners and proxies is not present at the first calling, a majority vote of the owners and proxies actually in attendance at the second calling, will suffice to pass resolutions. The ab­ sent owners have 30 days from receiving the minutes if they wish to protest the vote.

Phone mast movement TELEFONICA is considering transfer­ ring thousands more mobile phone masts to its subsidiary Telxius in a bid to make it more attractive to in­ vestors. Telxius was set up to manage Telefonica’s mobile network infra­ structure as well as undersea cables and around 15,000 were initially handed over in Spain, the rest of Eu­ rope and Latin America. The company is part owned by US fund KKR (40 per cent) and by Pontegadea, the investment vehicle of Amancio Ortega (9.99 per cent).

Iberia extension plan THE European Commission (EC) has proposed that Iberia, amongst other airlines be given seven more months to adapt their shareholding to continue operating in the European Union (EU) after a No Deal Brexit. In the air transport sector, the Commission pro­ poses to extend the extension granted to foreign airlines to adapt to Community legislation from the current March 30, 2020 until October 24.

Iberia, part of the IAG group, would automati­ cally lose the capacity to operate flights between two EU cities because more than 50 per cent of its shares would belong to a UK group, which would be a non­EU country. Iberia must restructure its shareholding so that more than half of its shares are held by an EU­based company, not by third countries, a requirement for being able to operate flights between two European Union cities.

Economy forging ahead HOUSEHOLD spending is helping Spain buck the Eurozone trend where the big economies are on the verge of recession. The region’s fourthlargest economy has outperformed the Eurozone’s average growth rate of five years. This was in the past on the back of exports growth, but now its consumers that are driving its growth. Gross domestic product is expected to rise in Spain by more than 2 per cent this year, compared with less than 0.5 per cent for Germany and just over 1 per cent for the Eurozone.

Top for tourism

By Dilip Kuner THE number of ultrawealthy people in Spain has increased 74 per cent since 2011. That was the year that the country’s wealth tax was reintroduced, in the middle of the economic recession. Hacienda (Inland Revenue) figures for 2017 recently re­ leased show that 611 taxpay­ ers declared net assets of €30 million or more, com­ pared to the 352 who did so in 2011. When it comes to proper­ ty, the number of citizens who declared property worth more than €1.5 million grew 35 per cent to a total of 60,337 individuals. The wealth tax is highly controversial. It is paid on top of income or capital gains where an individual’s net assets are worth more than €700,000. Although it is a state levy the power has been de­ volved to the autonomous

SPAIN is the most competitive country in the world in terms of tourism, according to the ‘The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2019,’ prepared by the World Economic Forum with its infrastructure and cultural sites scorning highly.

Cataluña, which does col­ lect the wealth tax, takes in €498.5 million annually while in Madrid there is a 100 per cent allowance, so the super­ rich tax residents in the city

don’t have to pay anything. Hacienda’s figures show that in 2017 there were 71 people worth more than €100 million living in Spain. While these figures seem to show a big rise in the numbers of super­rich, it could be simply that they are now visible.

A tax amnesty in 2012 un­ covered €40 billion that had been previously undeclared. Then in 2013 a new law was passed that forced indi­ viduals to declare their inter­ national assets or face a stiff fine. This uncovered €156 billion in assets that Spanish residents had abroad.

OVERALL recorded music revenues in Spain grew by 27 per cent in the first six months of this year to €140.7 million on physical and digital music, compared to €110.9 million in the first half of 2018.

LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT

A political problem

CAN no one rid us of this turbulent blot? This whole Brexit debacle, which has, among other international embarrassments, made us the laughing stock of Europe, has actually achieved at least one positive result; it has finally revealed the true nature and motives of our so-called leaders. The whole fiasco has very little to do with the British public, and certainly no connection to our democracy. It is purely a battle royal between the privileged few. Arrogant elitists who, in the main, have no interest whatsoev­ er in how the public think or act, unless it somehow threatens their own self­centered ambitions. These governmental manipulators, particu­ larly the remoaners, have shown us they will sink to just about any level to protect their vested interests. I also find it interesting in the way they are insisting Boris asks for a further extension. How can they be so sure that the EU will comply? On numerous occasions the EU leaders have told us they will in no way grant us more time. Could it be the ‘old boys’ club’ knows something we don’t? No whiff of possible collusion there surely? Heaven for­ bid we should suspect them of anything as

devious as that! Well, be that as it may, you can rest assured many among them have plenty to lose. Over the years dozens of MPs and peers have collectively received millions in EU subsidies. Forty­eight wealthy farmer/ landown­ ers claim 5.7 million a year from the EU. Over 30 former MEPs and offi­ cials in the House of Lords draw up to €500,000 a year in EU pensions. Many have tak­ en an oath of loyalty to the EU not to attack the old in­ stitution. (Yep!) Among them is the utterly useless Neil Kinnock (87,000 PA), Lord (Mandy) Mandelson (34,000 PA), Lord Tugendhat (41,000PA) and so on. Company leaders also put their narrow vested interests before the UK’s overall economic interests, mainly because they know they will have to pay more wages should we leave the EU.

BORIS JOHNSON: Looking for a further extension.

At the very least these people are guilty of a conflict of interest and should undoubtedly be barred from any crucial voting in these mat­ ters. Nope, sorry folks, I’m afraid your political preferences really don’t enter into it. The only democracy these people understand is the one that concurs with their own selfish senti­ ments, and they will do anything to frustrate Brexit ­ or anything else that may threaten or interfere with their own lucrative ambitions. Well I’m here to warn them to be careful what they wish for. What these parliamentary conspirators don’t understand, is that by try­ ing to destroy Boris Johnson, they are taking away what could finally be a resolution to the whole sorry mess. For the first time since the referendum the public can see some light at the end of the tunnel and they won’t take kindly to seeing it snatched away yet again. It is not the public who are the instigators of all the confusion and chaos; we made our minds up three years ago. It is the politicians who are the problem. As usual!

Friday 13 and all that … NORA JOHNSON BREAKING VIEWS Nora is the author of popular psychological suspense and crime thrillers and a freelance journalist. To comment on any of the issues raised in her column, go to www.euroweeklynews.com/3.0.15/nora-johnson

FRIDAY 13th. Rumours and superstitions surround this date in history, regarding both the number 13 and the day Friday. From a Norse myth (12 gods and their uninvited, 13th doom­laden guest); Bibli­ cal references (Judas Iscariot, who be­ trayed Christ, the 13th diner at the Last Supper); medieval dastardly deeds (on Fri­ day October 13, 1307, King Philip of France arrested and put to death the revered Knights Templar for their Holy Grail secrets and wealth) to more modern times (Friday was the traditional day for public hangings in Britain with supposedly 13 steps leading up to the noose). And how is fear of the number 13 demonstrated today? Some airports have no gate 13. Some planes have no row 13. Hotels regularly have no floor or room 13. But if not the result of just plain old co­ incidence, some past ‘Friday 13th tragedies’ were actually planned to feed into the mythology. I’m thinking here of

FRIDAY 13: Rumours and superstitions surround this date. the ‘Friday the 13th virus’ programmed to delete IBM computer files across Britain on that day in January 1989. Bad luck had nothing to do with it. Pick any date in history and you’ll have a massive list of genocide, murder, rape, greed, natural disasters, fear and loss. Bad things happen every day. It’s just that, if something happens on Friday 13th, it sticks in our minds because we’ve all been brainwashed to believe it’s bad luck. In fact, in some countries like Italy, 13 is lucky while in Spain, it’s Tuesday the 13th that’s unlucky! Finally, a few positives. Hollywood offi­ cially arrived on a Friday 13th. The Holly­ wood sign (originally advertising ‘HOLLY­ WOODLAND’) was unveiled on Friday July 13, 1923. Built to advertise a housing de­

velopment, it’s since become one of the world’s biggest tourist attractions. As for the UK, the first nudist colony was found­ ed on Friday June 13, 1930: the North De­ von Club in Metherell opened and Britons were allowed to let it all hang out. If you’re still spooked this Friday 13th, maybe you’ll be even more spooked on October 31st: Brexit day. Halloween will never be the same again...

I’m SuperGrumpyMan MIKE SENKER IN MY OPINION Views of a Grumpy Old Man I BOUGHT some new garden furniture. We agreed a price - not the ticket price as I only ever use that as a starting point - and I paid by credit card. As I sat in the shop I got confirmation on my phone that the amount had been processed which is how it should be. When I got home I double checked the invoice and found a €30 mistake. I immedi­ ately phoned the store and the salesman apologised and said he would refund it straight away. A week later it’s not been credited. I’ve called them again and asked why not? But nobody can give me an an­ swer. I’ve noticed this a few times. If taking the money out can be instant, why can’t the repayment be just as quick? When I was in England recently I used Uber which I have set up with my Pay Pal account. When I checked I noticed there were two payments for Uber on one day even though I only used them once. I

emailed them and was told some reason why, which to be honest I didn’t under­ stand. It was something about guarantee­ ing the payment and it was just being held and would be credited back soon and four or five days later it was. What’s all this belt and braces protec­ tion? I’ve booked a car for an upcoming trip. I’ve got all the insurance cover but they are still going to put a €1,000 hold on my credit card. The problem being is that I have to go after them if they decide to charge me for something I have no clue about. I still never got my money back for a Monarch flight that I paid for with a debit card and probably never will because of the nutty banking rules. Someone wanted to send me some mon­ ey from a UK bank to my Spanish one. I told them to use an App that does it pretty quick. I was in the UK at the time but they decided to use their bank to do it. I was there for four days but I still got back to Spain before my money did even though it was instantly taken from my mate’s account. So I’ve decided my new name will be SuperGrumpyMan… travels faster than the speed of money transfer and re­ funds... a bit long but you get the point.

ENORMOUS carbon footprint

I REFER to your recent article in the Euro Weekly News. Each week we enjoy a great deal of live televised sport. Wonderful, covering all sport from around the world. All these events, football, cricket, tennis, racing, rugby World Cup, golf, etc etc leave an enormous carbon footprint created by the TV companies whose representatives, engineers, presenters and commentators travel by car, van, sea and air to provide us with our armchair entertainment. If the climate change and Green party people are genuine in their be­ lief about the disaster imminently awaiting us, they would demand the immediate banning of all outside broadcasting of sporting events as non­essential activity. Of course, they won’t and we all know why ­ support would collapse. There are votes and kudos and good fees to be earned by those supporting ‘project fear’ in all its guises, so, as a demonstration of commitment to the cause let the climate experts and green political parties propose a ban on the televising of sporting events to be im­ plemented by world governments and then we would know they really are se­ rious! Alan Bryan

I agree with Leapy I HAVE just read your column in the EWN and totally agree with you. I am so pleased I don’t live in the UK. It left me feeling so angry that Boris has had the rug pulled from underneath his feet as regards being able to negotiate any deal at all. The EU must be laughing all the way to their meeting place. Jeremy has been calling for an elec­ tion for months now and when it was offered, he refused it. You just couldn’t

was spot on and exactly right. We live in Spain and would be better off financially if we stayed in, but it makes my blood boil when these remainers try to get the result overturned. Richard Horsey

All letters by email or post should carry the writer’s address, NIE and contact number though only the name and town will be published.

IF this was in the UK, that poor lamb would be su­ ing our police for aggressive arrest and reporting it to the police investigation team. Good to see ‘zero tolerance’ in action. Laurie Linarce Why not just wait for him to get tired or bored and come down rather than climbing on other ve­ hicles and damaging them. He could hurt no­one but himself up there. The owner of both vans now have to try and get compensated for the damage and you can bet the police won’t be as keen to help with that. Softly,softly, catchy monkey! Tony Aqombar

GLOBAL warming has been happening on Earth since Adam was alive. We worry about how many times we fly back to our home countries, the fuel we use in our car, the eco efficiency of our homes. All these things contribute to our global footprint - that is the impact we as individuals, through our lifestyle, have on the planet. But should we be made to feel guilty that living our lives is killing the planet and ultimately leading to the extinction of the human race? According to Dr Guy Midgley, head of the climate change research group of the National Biodiversity Institute South Africa, we live on an unusually stable planet, but periods of cooling and warming naturally happen in cycles. These periods of rising and falling temperatures over the last 500,000 years have been down to levels of methane and CO2 in the atmosphere which are not man-made. Also, levels of solar radiation vary over time and this has a significant impact on global temperatures, most notably in the Earth’s northern hemisphere. Climate change experts believe we are currently between ice ages and that the development of modern industry has had a relatively minor impact on temperatures. Over several thousand years in the earth’s history, temperatures have been higher than they currently are indicating that doing too many school runs or turning on the air con isn’t what’s going to wipe us out. So, it’s not just our fault, but does that mean we should throw caution to the wind? Not at all. Reducing greenhouse gases will slow down global warming and, while we’re the planet’s dominant species, we should do all we can to save the planet. After all, we’re only passing through.

OUT

FOR NEXT 7 DAYS AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Primarily, you are wanting to see some appreciation. That is understandable given the efforts that you have made. Do not be annoyed, however, if it is a while coming yet. Others are not always as well tuned in as you. If necessary, use a go-between discreetly to make sure of progress.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Increased activity in your love life means less time to really concentrate on business. Make sure that priority financial matters are dealt with. Not doing so will see you kicking yourself later on. A close relationship is going well. There’s no reason to wonder why, the charm offensive is obviously working.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Keeping an eye on your health is particularly important at the moment. Because you have been active, it could be that you need to give yourself a bit of time. Pampering and just plain relaxing are all going to stand you in good stead during the coming week.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) Opening your mind to a new idea has convinced you that it is time for a change in direction. This is such a time, but not all changes will be permanent. Give yourself a way out of any situation this week. Using your tact and charm, it will require only a little application to please everyone.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Improvising within a new business situation may not give you the perfect answer to a problem. What it will do, however, is give you an insight into the way others live. Until now, your approach to life may have been a little one-sided.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) A recent holiday has set your mind racing. This being a romantic time means that you can get a little overexcited. Your romance may not be set to last but you should fully enjoy it

nonetheless. Relatives issue words of warning but they have only your best interests at heart.

LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION

IRISH LOTTO Saturday September 7

Opposing opinions on a matter close to your heart see you hesitating. There is nothing wrong with asking for advice. The chances are that you know someone who has already been through your situation. Don’t let pride make you miss out on a solution.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Not everything in the garden is rosy but you are made of strong stuff. Your conviction that something is right helps you in discussions. Support given to a loved one may be misguided, especially if it is a huge financial gamble.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) This is a time to enjoy the present and look forward to the future. Don’t forget, along the way, to congratulate yourself for all that you have achieved in the last year. Sometimes you do not blow your own trumpet and people appreciate you in a quiet way.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) An appetite for something new means that you tread unknown ground. It’s an exciting time when you may find it easier to do things alone. This does not mean you have to feel alone as others can be told of your progress.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Part of being ‘you’ is your independent mind. Some may try to change that this week. Why would someone want to make you more dependent on them? Could it be that they feel insecure? Giving reassurance may be all that is needed. We all feel the need for appreciation.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Trying to be everything to all people is tiring. No one knows this more than you. Give yourself a little time and space this week because it will make a great difference to your spirits.

Aesthetic Breast Surgery is the most in Demand for Women and Men in Spain BREAST surgery for women, and gy­ naecomastia surgery for men, are the two most popular aesthetic interven­ tions for the population. Every year, over 18,000 patients in Spain undergo mammoplasty, followed far behind by liposuction, blepharoplasty or eyelid correction, rhinoplasty and ab­ dominoplasty. In light of this informa­ tion, Doctor José Salvador, Head of the Plastic Surgery Service at Quirón­ salud Alicante and Torrevieja, explains that, “The breast area is the one that can generate the most self­esteem conflicts, for men as well as for women. In second place, we have protruding ear surgery for men, and eyelid surgery for both genders. “While the goal of gynaecomastia surgery is to eliminate the increased mammary volume that often appears

BREAST SURGERY: Women can remodel their shape after pregnancy. in males during their youth (due to hormonal problems) or as adults (due to excessive fat deposits on the mam­ mary area), a mammoplasty seeks to increase the size of the breasts in women, whether it is a simple en­ largement or due to a need to lift the

breasts and remodel their shape after pregnancies and breastfeeding,” states Doctor Salvador. As for the age bracket that submits to the greatest amount of these inter­ ventions, the surgeon says that they are between 18 and 25 years old,

“though there is also a second peak in a more mature age bracket, between 40 and 50 years of age.” The increase in this type of inter­ vention is due to body worship and the safety of the interventions. “Body worship, the need to look good, and the ease of going to clinics staffed with excellent plastic and aesthetic surgery professionals have led to steadily increasing demand for these surgeries, which will be more and more in demand,” said the surgeon. This excellence, as well as the incor­ poration of innovative technology performed by some hospital centres, has made Alicante one of the favourite destinations of patients from other countries for the perfor­ mance of plastic and aesthetic surgical interventions. “The choice of Alicante

is based on the fact that it is a well­ known city in Europe, where plastic surgery with a high degree of profes­ sionality is available, and because its climate and attractive beaches create an opportunity to mix surgery with leisure,” according to Doctor Salvador. Quirónsalud in the Valencian Com­ munity and the region of Murcia Centro Médico Quirónsalud Ali­ cante joins seven centres in the Valen­ cian Community and the region of Murcia to become part of a leading group that is at the cutting edge of medicine. We believe in a healthcare attention model, where people are at the centre, and which, from this mo­ ment, Quirónsalud places at the dis­ posal of all the people of Alicante, to offer them the best care for their health.

Beat the bloat BURSTING: Feeling bloated can be caused by eating too quickly. WE’VE all had that feeling after a large meal or an indulgent holiday when your stomach can feel overfull or uncomfortable. It can be easy to assume this is simply because we have put on a pound or two, but sometimes even if we make all the right food choices the cause can just be simple bloating of the stomach. This condition has various causes, but thankfully can be easily treated. According to Healthline.com, ‘abdominal bloating oc­ curs when the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is filled with air or gas. Most people describe bloating as feeling full, tight, or swollen in the abdomen. Your abdomen may also be swollen (distended), hard, and painful. Bloating is often accompanied by pain, ex­ cessive gas (flatulence), frequent burping or belching, abdominal rumbling or gur­ gles.’ The site claims the most common cause of bloating is gas which can enter the stom­

ach by eating or drinking too quickly, as well as by taking in too many carbonated drinks. Chewing gum and smoking can also cause the problem. If this is the case, try to slow down eating and cut back on fizzy drinks by eating more mindfully and taking time to chew and enjoy your food. Certain foods can also cause bloating, in­ cluding beans and legumes, which can pro­ duce gas as they are broken down in the stomach. Instead, try to substitute lighter coloured lentils and black beans which can be more easily digested. Wheat can also cause bloating in those who have a gluten intoler­ ance. If you suspect this may be you, why not try some gluten­free alternatives for pasta and bread and see if this helps. While it may be good for us in many oth­ er respects, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables can be hard for our bodies to di­ gest, causing a build­up of gas. Instead,

spinach, cucumbers, lettuce and sweet potato still contain plenty of vitamins, but without the painful side effects. Another unlikely culprit is some fruits. These include apples, which according to Healthline have, ‘been known to cause bloating and other digestive issues for some people.’ It seems ‘the culprits are fructose (which is a FODMAP) and the high fibre content. Fructose and fibre can both be fermented in the large intestine, and may cause gas and bloating.’ The website suggests switching raw apples for cooked ones which can be easier to digest. Finally, dairy products can be difficult for many people to digest, resulting in bloating and discomfort. If that is the case, why not try some dairy­free alternatives such as al­ mond or soy milk and butter. Cutting back on cheese toppings can also help bloating without impacting too much on taste.

Makeover your mornings THE morning can either be the best time of the day or the worst, depending on what kind of person you are. Whichever camp you fall in­ to, how you start your morn­ ing can have a big impact on how the rest of the day goes. Making small changes to your morning routine could quickly make all the differ­ ence. Although it’s incredibly tempting to reach for the tea or coffee first thing, try drink­ ing a cup of hot water and lemon first which will help to start your digestion, get your liver up and running as well as rehydrating you.

Theo blinded by cork LOVE ISLAND star Theo Camp­ bell has returned home from a holiday in Ibiza where he was temporarily blinded in one eye. He had been in Ibiza relaxing with fellow Love Island star Kaz Crossley when he was hit in the eye by a popping Cham­ pagne cork. Theo was sporting a pirate­ style patch over his right eye which had been seriously dam­ aged when he was hit in the

freak accident. He had been wearing sun­ glasses at a party and took them off at the very moment a woman in front of him popped the cork of a bubbly bottle. The force caused a tear that required seven stitches in his eye ball. Theo said: “It was a perfect bullseye, shot hits me clean in the eye and that’s how easy it was.” Specialists say there’s every

Gates goes solo in Ibiza SINGER Gareth Gates has been chilling in Ibiza with his sister Charlotte and friend Mimi after his split with fiancée Faye Brookes. Gates went on Instagram to thank his family and friends for their support after the breakdown of his seven­year relationship with Brookes. The 35­year­old had originally booked the trip for himself and Corrie star Brookes. He has been seen on the town at Ocean Beach club with his family and friends.

Gates had posted earlier that he couldn’t wait to leave the UK. It was revealed earlier this month that the cou­ ple had split and Brookes had moved out of the home they shared. The split had actually come se­ cretly in July when they called off their wedding plans after a series of rows. Meanwhile Brookes has been celebrating her birthday in London and sharing photos of herself drinking with friends in Soho.

Coppola Hills Ristorante Italiano COPPOLA HILLS restaurant is a family-run business and is making a statement in the Benimar and Rojales area with their home-made Italian cuisine. They have been open since April. The Coppola chain has received eight awards to date, three in Guardamar, three in Benimar and two in Ireland for the Best Italian Restaurant. Titles which they can add to their long list of success stories all the way down from Italy to Ireland then onto Spain. Coppola Hills is run by father and son, Tony and Cristian. Both have a vast extensive knowledge due to running a number of culinary busi­ nesses since 1995. It is plain to see why the Number 1 Italian Restaurant business on Trip­ Advisor over the last two years has received so much acclaim. The recipes for the traditional Naples style cuisine that were passed down by Grandma Antoinette Coppo­ la to her Daughter­in­law Catherine Coppola and then to her sons and daughter over the years have been combined with the expertise of Sicil­ ian chefs to bring together incredible flavours from Sicily to Napoli. Cus­ tomers have referred to Coppola cui­ sine as ‘impeccable,’ the service ‘first class’ and the portions ‘generous.’ Tony, Catherine and their children

Traditional Naples cuisine. Roberto, Cristian and Deborah have brought Italy to the Costa Blanca. Their children are now distinguished chefs too thanks to their Mother, who will make sure that the Coppola style continues to reincarnate itself through the years. The menu offers a wide selection of home­made pastas, pizzas deli­ cately forged in a stone oven and tagliatelle with lobster. There is a va­

riety of meat and fish on offer that is cooked to perfection on the grill. The menu de la noche is a three­course meal that Tony highly recommends on the first visit to get an idea of the vibrant mix of flavours available. The restaurant is located at the top of a tranquil hill which is the per­ fect setting to enjoy some Italian delicacies. Higher up than the bustling restaurant chains, the smell of the Coppola Hills Ristorante pass­ es down as far as the plains and the view from the top of the hill is quite enchanting. Inside the restaurant there is a cosy two­storey open plan set­up whilst recreating an authentic Italian atmosphere. Outside there is a won­ derful chill­out area to enjoy a cock­ tail or two. The Coppola family have grand plans for the future.

PETS

House-sitters can help to keep pets feeling safe at home by maintaining their routines MANY of us will have had pets who love a routine. Breakfast and a fresh drink, the morning walk, following you around the house during the day, sleeping when the sun is hot, and an evening meal all around the same time each day. Their routine makes them feel safe. It is predictable, their bodies are physically in tune with it. Changing that routine may be fine, but some pets suffer with such fundamental changes. Having a house-sitter to care for your pets at home helps you minimise any additional stress they might expe-

rience in your absence. They settle down knowing that they’ll be fed in the same place at the same time. H ow do you benefit from HousesitMatch?

PROPERTY ANALYSING the market and being aware of the possibilities and opportunities are vital when buying a new property. There are essential points to take into account before signing a mortgage to ensure that the joy of purchasing a new home is long lived. One of the most relevant factors is the location, and not just the area itself, but al­ so roads and public transport as well as the proximity to schools, supermarkets and health centres. Whether to buy second­ hand or new may depend on the location you choose. If you want to live in the centre of a city, the option is probably largely second­ hand, in which case consider there might be costly changes to be made. If it is a new build, the ex­ penses can come from fac­ tors such as community charges for any pools or com­ munal gardens.

Invest time before cash when buying a new home

ESSENTIAL POINTS: Consider everything from location to taxes.

Everybody has a budget, but if you stumble across a ‘real bargain,’ it’s important to investigate the area, the possible need for refurbish­ ment, and to what extent. Choosing a mortgage is just as important as selecting the house itself, and while getting to grips with the op­ tions is exhausting, it’s im­ perative. Experts recommend that the monthly payment of the mortgage does not surpass more than 40 per cent of the salary, while many banks may require a tighter thresh­ old, even below 30 per cent. Consider the savings need­ ed to obtain a home, it can be 20 per cent of the value of the property, and if possible, support this with a kitty for management and legal ex­ penses. The taxes subject to the sale ­ VAT, AJD and IBI ­ are numerous and it’s vital to get advice to avoid misunder­ standings or last minute sur­ prises.

Volkswagen owns 12 well-known car brands from seven European countries.

PORSCHE will use three drive technologies in the future: highly emotive petrol engines, powerful plug-in hybrids and from now on - also all-electric drives. This product strategy is reflected in the eight new models that the sports car manufacturer will be presenting at the 68th International Motor Show (IAA) at Messe Frankfurt in Germany from today (Thursday, September 12) to September 22. The focus at the IAA will be on the brand’s first all­electric sports car: the Taycan as a Turbo and Turbo S. Further highlights at the mo­ tor show include three new hybrid models in the Cayenne series, the new Macan Turbo and the 911 Carrera as a Coupé and Cabriolet. In addition,

HIGHLIGHT: The Taycan as a Turbo and Turbo S. Porsche will also present the vehicle with which the company will enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in November: the Porsche 99X Electric. 12­day continuous programme on the Porsche brand at the company stand

Throughout the entire duration of the auto show, experts from the com­ pany’s various technical departments will be at the stand to present a stage programme on the Porsche brand and provide an insight into current topics for the first time. The new Porsche

Taycan will play a central part in the lectures, interviews and discussions. Employees from the Development, Design and Marketing departments will explain the features of the first all­ electric Porsche. Other main content areas include the topics of motorsport

and Formula E, visionary future tech­ nologies as well as gaming and Esports racing. Next Wednesday, September 18 Porsche will hold its ‘Motorsport Day.’ The motor show audience can look forward to a presentation of Porsche’s Formula E car and an hour­long auto­ graph session with race car drivers, among other things. The ‘Next Vision Day’ on Friday will focus on topics about the future. Ex­ perts will deal with urban transforma­ tion and new technologies in the auto­ motive industry. And on the two ‘Esports Days’ to be held on Saturday and Sunday, Septem­ ber 21 and 22, live races on simulators will take place in which professionals and amateurs alike can participate.

Drunk driving revelation JUST over 1.6 million drivers older than 55 admitted to driving while over the limit a new study suggests. The survey by Direct Line Motor Insurance found the problem could be worse, with a futher 3.6 million motorists in the same age group revealing they could have been over the limit behind the wheel at some point. The main excuse given for driving under the influence was that the trip was only over a short distance, with 1.2 million of those aged over 55 using this very reason. More than 750,000 of these more mature motorists also admitted they drove when they could have still been drunk from the night before. The research, carried out in partnership with Opinium, suggested that many people still do not understand the impact alcohol has on their body. Just over one million drivers older than 55 said they believed men could drink more than women and be safe to drive,

but it is in fact down to a variety of factors such as weight, medications and diet. A further one million over 55’s believe eating a large meal before driving would counteract the effects of alcohol and 552,000 believe that older people are safer drivers and that it is therefore less dangerous if they drink and drive. Analysis of Department for Transport (DfT) data by Direct Line has revealed 26 per cent of all road accidents in 2017 (45,500 out of 175,000) involved older drivers. Commenting on the figures, a motor insurance spokesman at Direct Line, said: “It is clear that younger drivers are not the only offenders when it comes to drink driving. “Motorists may become complacent as they get older because they feel they are so experienced behind the wheel, but tolerance levels differ hugely depending on body type. Data from the British Crime Survey shows the number of self-reported driving by people

who think they have been over the legal alcohol limit at least once in the last 12 months. Between 2010 and 2018, there was a reduction of nearly 50 per cent in the proportion of people aged 16-19 who took this risk. For people aged 50, it fell by only 11 per cent.

Rafa’s a winner again

FANTASTIC: Nadal triumphed in a great match.

from the young Russian, Rafael was there to stamp his name once more in the sport’s history. Nadal, who was in his fifth US Open championship match and 27th Grand Slam final, is the first man to claim five major titles after turning 30. Nadal always falls down backwards

after winning a major title, but this time he lay there for so long ­ overcome by exhaustion and relief ­ leaving one wondering if perhaps CPR was needed. “It is one of the most emotional nights in my tennis career, with that video and all of the support,” said Nadal at the presentation ceremony.

THE 33-year-old Spanish lefthander moved one shy of Roger Federer’s all-time men’s record 20 Grand Slam triumphs and with it became the second-oldest New York champion in the Open era after Ken Rosewall in 1970 at age 35. Delivering one of his most spectacu­ lar major final performances, Rafa cap­ tured his 19th career Grand Slam title on Sunday by winning his fourth US Open against Russia’s Daniil Medvedev 7­5, 6­3, 5­7, 4­6, 6­4. The match got off to an intriguing start when Nadal received a warning for slow play in the very first game. In his next game, Nadal gave away an early break when a couple of fore­ hands skewed off his racket frame and failed even to reach the net. Had it been any other player the errors may have increased, but not Nadal who is the best on the tour at preventing things to spin out of his control. Even losing the third and fourth set in what seemed like a definitive come­back

RAFAEL NADAL has won his 19th Grand Slam in an epic five­set clash against Daniil Medvedev

FOUGHT BACK: Malaga tried their hardest but still lost out.

Madrid win again REAL MADRID, the reigning basketball champions, have started their pre-season in style with two wins. Missing several players on duty at the World Cup and with just three days’ training they won the Torneo Costa del Sol for the third consecutive year. They beat Unicaja Malaga 69­76 in a game they dominated in the first quarter. The team mixed youth with experiences, as in their earlier game against Zenit. Unicaja Malaga, with an inspired

Avramovic, went ahead early. A timeout was called by Madrid coach Laso and whatever he said had the desired effect with several three­ pointers making the score 16­24. There were moments in the second quarter where the hosts challenged the Whites, but Madrid pushed again to take the lead in Nerja and it went to 28­43 at half­time. Casimiro’s side were not done and brought the game back to within five points (45­50), but Laso’s side dominated the rest of the game.

“This victory means a lot, especially the way the match became so difficult and tough.” He added: “It was an amazing fi­ nal. Daniil is only 23 years old and the way he was able to fight and change the rhythm of the match was amazing. He will have many

more opportunities like this. “The last three hours of the match were very, very intense. Very tough mentally and physically, too. The crowd has been as always amazing, all these facts that make the moment super spe­ cial. It was an unforgettable moment. At the same time Daniil created this moment, too. The way that he fought, the way that he played, he is a champi­ on. Just well done for him. I really be­ lieve that he will have many more chances. “The way that the match became very dramatic at the end, that makes this day unforgettable, part of my histo­ ry of this sport. I’m just very happy. This trophy means everything to me today.” Nadal extended his lead in the ATP Race To London to 1,960 points over Djokovic. In doing so, he strengthened his bid for a fifth year­end No 1 finish in the ATP Rankings, which would tie Fed­ erer and Djokovic and move to within one of Pete Sampras’ record. Nadal took the top prize of $3.85 million at Arthur Ashe Stadium to add to his US Open trophy haul.
