CIT winners lauded

The new government

The 2010 CIT Sur awards were presented recently in the Mare Nostrum Resort,in Las Américas. CIT is the centre for tourism initiatives, and annually recognises individuals and companies who have gone the extra mile in promoting the island as a tourist destination. Here in the south the winners this year were:

Business: Accomodation: Rafael Adrián Commerce and crafts: Rosa Martín Bautista Leisure and adventure: Ocean Dream´s Factory Restaurants, bars, discos: Vicente Cruz Arteaga y D. Claudio González González Agencies and transport: Sierra y González

F

ollowing the withdrawal of the Partido Popular from the regional government president Paulino Rivero has named his new team, and has obviously decided to opt for experience over experimentation. Back at the cabinet table is María del Mar Julios, a former regional health minister. She takes the up the job of regional vice-president, previously held by PP regional head Soria, as well as becoming Minister for Employment, Industr y and Commerce. The president has also, with just seven months to

go before regional elections, reduced the number of government departments from ten to eight. Jorge Rodríguez moves to Finance and the considerably impor tant depar tment of Tourism, previously in the hands of Rita Martín, has been incorporated into the office of the President, a move that has come in for some criticism. Domingo Berriel, already in charge of Environment, will also take charge of Agriculture and Fisheries, held by the PP’s Pilar Merino, and Health, formerly held by Mercedes Roldós, now has Fernando Bañolas in charge. The changes signify gains for the CC in Gran Canaria, no doubt a

plus when the elections are held in May. Speaking to press after the announcement, Rivero said the new administration would be “stronger, more capable and more frugal”, just the kind of reassuring words the electorate may want to hear in the run up to an election during an ongoing economic crisis. Certainly political cynics will see the PP has having taken the early exit as an opportune way of distancing themselves from the islands’ problems come election day. But if Rivero’s can manage to pull one or two political rabbits out of the hat in coming months that move may backfire.

TV crew in action

The world and his wife-to-be have been alerted to the fact that a TV crew from the UK have been in Tenerife recently filming. Our trusty investigative team at Island Connections did track them down but have been sworn to secrecy (!) as to their identity – all will be revealed at a later date. Suffice it to say there has been a crew here shooting surprise visitors to our lovely island, visiting some top locations, and all in all we believe putting together a package that will only serve to delight those who already know how much fun Tenerife is and encourage those yet to find out to come and visit.

CLIL programme

Bilingual teaching“a sham” The much-publicised ‘bilingual’ teaching programme allegedly operating in hundreds of schools across the Canaries is a total sham, say teacher unions here. Highlighted by regional president Paulino Rivero as the flagship of the Canarian education system, the programme, which is known as CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), is part of a wider European curricular initiative designed to enhance the English skills of pupils in primary and secondary schools. Essentially, it involves certain subjects, such as geography, history, music etc being delivered through the medium of English in state schools. However, although praised as the key to “creating a bilingual population of children” by the government, teachers say the programme is not working due to the lack of investment in resources. “It is a complete fraud. We want to know where the money received from the EU for CLIL has gone. The teachers who have signed up to teach CLIL do not receive proper extra training and many are paying for their own English tuition privately to be able to deliver the classes” says the STEC teachers’ union, which has challenged the Department of Education to list the Canarian schools where the programme is being followed properly. The union criticism comes on the heels of complaints by teachers that it is virtually impossible to maintain standards in subjects if the pupils cannot understand the content due to the language barrier. “Whether you like it or not, you have to drop the level of what you are trying to teach in say geography to adapt it to the children’s command of English” said one teacher in San Isidro who is part of the CLIL programme.

Lottery location

Confital

Telde’s Nudist luck beach continues angers locals Telde’s run of lottery luck is fast earning the town a reputation as the place to buy tickets for this year’s Christmas draw.

T

he second biggest town in Gran Canaria was struck twice by ‘lottery lightening’ in the space of just two days at the end of October. The draw known as La Primitiva brought a massive eight million euros to a local resident, not to mention a rush of TV cameras and journalists to the door of the ticket office where the ticket was issued. The prize would have been even bigger if a second winner, from Guadalajara on the mainland, had not chosen exactly the same sequence of numbers. Two days later the same Primitiva draw brought more prize-money to a Telde local, who had to be content to share the jackpot with another 47 people, although he had no complaints about the €57,000 windfall.

Las Palmas Council’s decision to set aside part of the city’s Confital Beach for nudism has received a mixed reaction from locals.

W

hile some have raised no objections to the regular prospect of users baring their all, others have hit out at the decision and are calling for a rethink. Interviewed in the Canarias 7 paper, Francisco Pérez, who uses Confital almost daily, said he was worried that the beach was no longer suitable for his young grand-daughter. “This has always been a family beach and although I have nothing against nudists they should use somewhere else. This decision has been taken to benefit a small number of people, some of whom are not content to take everything off but do other things as well!”

Sea safety

British yacht rescued safely

A British yacht was rescued safely off Los Cristianos on November 2nd after getting into difficulty at sea.

T

he local Sea Rescue Unit says a Fred Olsen ferry en route to Los Cristianos overheard a distress call from the yacht, named as the Quest of Mersey, and contacted the emergency services.

T

he vessel was drifting around five miles of f the coast of the island after apparently losing power. It was towed into Puerto Colón and its four crew members, who were said to be in good health, were disembarked safely.

T

he incident comes a day after the crew of another British-registered yacht had to be rescued 95 miles off Lanzarote and airlifted by helicopter to Gran Canaria.

Arico murder

Pensioner gets 17 years

A 79-year-old man from Arico has been sentenced to 17 years in jail for the murder of his wife in a domestic row.

Á

lvaro González, who is just months short of his 80th birthday, was found guilty last week of punching his 72-year-old wife to death during the row. He will serve at least 10 years of his sentence for the brutal killing.

H

e was also ordered to stay away from his home town for 10 years and to pay €250,000 compensation to his wife’s family.

T

he jur y at Tenerife’s Criminal Court took just five hours to reach a unanimous guilty verdict for the killing, which occurred in December 2008 hours after the defendant, who had previous convictions for domestic violence, learned that his wife was intending to leave him.

Not his time

Elderly escapade By Barbara Belt

I

t is not unknown for vehicles to come off the road and when it happens in La Gomera, the consequences are usually dire. Most roads snake around barrancos with steep slopes of hair-raising depth. Recently installed roadside barriers on main stretches go some way to prevent - or at least minimise - the plunge into oblivion, but most of the island’s road network remains unprotected by crash barriers. Stories of lucky escapes are part of local folklore, as are morbid tales of plunges over the edge. Very few people, of any age, live to tell the tale themselves, making the recent news of such a plunge off the road all the more remarkable. A passing motorist was perplexed by the sudden appearance and disappearance of another car on the road which was coming in the opposite direction. Once outside the island’s towns and villages, there are very few cars on the road at night. Ferry arrivals and departures produce short

bursts of motoring activity, and quickly all goes quiet again. It is not unusual to drive across the island without meeting another vehicle on the road, so when the driver in question saw distant lights approaching, he noticed. The oncoming car failed to appear where expected, and our hero decided it must have

stopped for some reason. When it was nowhere to be seen round the next curve either, he was perplexed. He drove on for a while. J.J. G.M, the driver in question, said “I was in a hurry to get home. I’d been out all day and was pretty hungry and tired. I was also listening to a football match on the radio, so it didn’t hit me at first when

the car disappeared. I’d driven on for a couple of kilometres without giving it much thought and then it suddenly hit me that it must have gone off the road. There was no other explanation. So I turned round and went back to where I thought I’d seen the lights, but I couldn’t see anything. I felt a bit stupid then and wondered if I���d imagined the whole thing, but I drove on a bit, stopped the car and got out to look over the edge. Then I saw light way down in the barranco. “I called the emergency services on 112 and told them a vehicle had gone over the edge and was about two hundred metres down. They asked me to wait there, so I did. It was pretty horrible waiting there, wondering how many people were down there in the car. I assumed they were dead. I was shaken up by it all”, he continues. A specially equipped emergency ambulance quickly arrived at the spot, just outside El Cabello, on the San Sebastián to Vallehermoso road, as did the Guardia Civíl. They set up a rescue procedure and, with lighting, the car turned out to be a jeep. At this stage in the story, rescue personnel could see exactly how far the jeep had fallen and were talking in terms of bringing up bodies rather than injured people. The driver and his female companion turned out to be very much alive. They were conscious and chatty when their rescuers eventually got down to them. After being checked by medical personnel from San Sebastián’s medical centre they were taken by ambulance to the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe hospital in the capital. “It was extraordinar y. A miracle! We’ve never seen anything like it. There we were preparing to bring up bodies and they were not only alive but relatively unscathed”, says ambulance crew member Juan. The driver was found to be suffering from mild head injuries and later discharged. His companion hurt her leg, but was also discharged. The fact that anyone can survive a two hundred metre car plunge with such minor injuries is remarkable, but this driver is ninety-six years of age and his companion eighty-four. When asked to comment on their miraculous escape, our driver, born in nineteen fourteen in La Gomera, offered a philosophical, “...when your number’s up, there’s nothing you can do. It’s not time for me yet”.

CabildoNews Island promotion

Travelling gourmets T

he Tenerife Cabildo may be on the right lines in promoting the gourmet offering of the island according to the International Tourism Trade Fairs Association. Food is a physical necessity, but it is increasingly being recognised as an essential part of the sensations a tourist receives in the destination. The ITTFA claim that, “today’s tourist is better informed, more cultured, well travelled and looking for new experiences. Food offers a gateway into other cultures, through taste, through food preparation and the whole eating environment. Food and drink provide lasting memories that define a holiday or travel experience. “Part of the joy of travel is the enjoyment of trying out unaccustomed cuisines, but not just the eating but the finding it, for example truffles and the producing of them, parmesan cheese and wine. Travel exhibitions now provide ideal platforms for food tourism, be that as part of a country or region exhibit or as a stand alone attraction such a specific food event or location. For example Cheddar in Somerset, England is visited for its cheese production and Reims in France for its champagne production.” New events are being organised constantly along these lines. Look out for tapas routes, tasting sessions and cookery exhibitions at a venue near you.

Bus station upgrade T

he ongoing renovations at the main bus station in Costa Adeje should be complete in December.

In a recent visit, Cabildo coordinator for mobility and security, Manuel Ortega, and Adeje tourism councillor Miguel Ángel Santos, oversaw the progress of the work, which has been carried out without disruption to the daily operation of the bus network, avoiding major disruption to passengers. The station hosts over half a million travellers annually and coordinates the operation of 103 buses serving 17 routes. As well as major reforms to the station’s infrastructure, bus company Titsa are planning to introduce a series of inter-urban routes to the growing metropolitan area.

Municipal Elections 2011

Your vote is your voice If you didn’t already know that there are municipal elections being held on 22nd May 2011, then you’ll soon find out: no doubt your streets will shortly be inundated with candidate campaigns. Municipal elections are held every four years and the outcome determines the local councillors who then elect the local mayor. The municipal administration in Spain has power over the local police, traffic enforcement, urban planning and development and social services, amongst others. These services affect the daily lives of all of those of us who are residents here in Spain. Many people don’t realise that, as an EU national over the age of 18 at the time of elections, they can have a say in their local community by voting. In fact, you’re even entitled to stand as a candidate, and there are now a number of British councillors across Spain. The first and very easy step to being eligible to vote is registering on the padrón at your local town hall. It’s surprising how many different reasons we hear for not registering: people say they didn’t know they had to, they haven’t had time and some are worried about a ‘Big Brother’ state watching their every move. It’s actually a legal obligation to be registered on the padrón if you are a resident, and it’s not at all designed to monitor in detail your comings and goings, but to provide the right local services. Money is assigned to a town hall depending on how many residents are in that area, and so if there is no record of the residents, the town may fall short on essential services such as police officers and street cleaners. In addition, registering will allow you access to benefits and social care as well as that all-important ‘X’ on the municipal ballot paper. Residents of nationalities other than Spanish have to also explicitly let the town hall know that they want to exercise their voting rights in Spain. Here’s what you need to do, according to your circumstances:

• If you’re not on the padrón: Visit your town hall to sign on the padrón and tell them that you also wish to vote in the upcoming elections.

• If you’re on the padrón but have never registered to vote in Spain: You should soon receive a letter from the Electoral Census Office. Sign the declaration on the bottom of the letter to say you would like to vote and send it back to your corresponding Office. Over 750,000 letters have already been sent out. If your address isn’t up-to-date on the padrón, you’ll need to contact the town hall to make sure you get your letter.

• If you’ve already registered to vote in Spain: You don’t need to re-register. Start thinking about who you want to vote for! Although there are currently more British Nationals than any other EU citizens already registered to vote, there are also more Brits than any others who are yet to do so. Recent figures show that only about half of us who are eligible to vote have registered with the Electoral Census Office. At the consulate we know that the British community get involved in their Spanish surroundings through social clubs, voluntary organisations and campaign groups. And we know of thousands of Britons who voice their concerns through online forums, society meetings and publications like this one. But this is one opportunity you really wouldn’t want to miss – the chance to have a productive voice in your local area. I’ll be making my vote count – will you? For more information contact your town hall, your Electoral Census Office or phone 901 101 900.



Control of the seas

Watery legal headache

A

promise by the Spanish gover nment to devolve control of the waters in and around the Canaries to the region looks set to give legal exper ts plenty of work. The promise, part of a package of measures agreed to persuade two Canarian MPs in Madrid to vote in favour of the 2011 Budget and save premier José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero

from a humiliating defeat, was immediately queried by the opposition on the grounds that there is no legal provision for a region to be awarded rights over the surrounding sea. Control is considered vital by the Canarian government, not just for environmental and fisheries reasons, but also to ensure the islands have the last say in the event of any offshore oil located nearby. However, law professors,

including Carlos Jiménez from Alcalá University, says the agreement is not worth the paper it is written on because the waters are international under maritime law. “Only archipelagos which are themselves recognised states have rights over their own waters, but the Canaries are part of Spain and cannot be given control. In any case, under international law Spain’s rights extend to the 12 nautical miles around each

island but not the 12 miles surrounding the Canaries as a whole”. Other experts consulted say Spain agreed to the designation of the waters between the Islands as ‘international waters’ when the country signed up to the 1980 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and cannot therefore offer the Canaries a change in status without first applying to have the Convention amended.

Live Arico founder and dog owner/carer Eugenio

Ostrich farm and restaurant owner Juan

Air navigation aid

Controllers slammed over fresh delays Air traffic controllers in the Canaries have come under fire again, this time for allegedly obstructing the start of a new air navigation radio aid system used in control towers.

Fur and feathers Live Arico/Ostrich farm

T

he news that a dog or dogs from the recently relocated Live Arico dog refuge had broken out and attacked and killed four ostrich chicks in the adjoining farm was reported in local Spanish press and Island Connections two weeks ago. But quickly the issue became one of interest on a wider scale, with the Tenerife Forum carr ying our report, which then generated an avalanche of responses. Island Connections called up to see both Eugenio, founder of Live Arico (though no longer president) and Juan Vicens, owner of the Ostrich farm on Camino Toledo II just off the exit opposite the Tenerife South airport. The two properties are indeed adjacent, and with three hundred dogs in the Live Arico installation one can understand how an owner of an ostrich farm would have misgivings when they moved in April. The drive up the windy road brings you into dry farm land,

with banana farms stretching as far as you can see on three sides. The ostrich farm and restaurant has been in operation for 15 years now, since Juan moved over from Mallorca. It’s a tourist attraction and restaurant, and he has open air sections and swings for children as well as extensive enclosures for the ostriches. Eugenio moved in next door in April, having moved from inadequate housing for the dogs in Amarilla Golf. He told Island Connections that one of the first things he wanted to proceed with was reinforcing the fencing between the two farms as well as work on the installation (housing, hospital area, offices, etc) but as he has yet to receive the necessary paperwork he can do nothing. And visually it does look like it’s in need of major work. The land is rented. Juan says that the law is very clear, and you simply cannot have a dog refuge within one kilometre of a farm such as his, and sooner or later Eugenio will have to go.

The facts of the current case are not in dispute – four dogs, one of which was chipped in Eugenio’s name, entered the ostrich farm on the night of October 19th and killed four chicks. That is fact. The other three dogs escaped (Eugenio claims they are not from his refuge) but the one that was caught was his. He is willing to pay whatever restitution he is ordered to by the courts. However this case is, it would appear, the proverbial tip of the iceberg. From our conversations with both individuals, it would appear that they have never spoken to each other about their mutual concerns, nor do they plan to do so formally. Juan says that since Live Arico moved next door he has lost in the region of €60,000 as the chicks that are hatching are weak and not surviving, and he is way down on stock. He also claims that a dog of Eugenio’s attacked an ostrich in front of a group of tourists. He says the noise of 300 dogs barking is unbearable, day or night (“imagine what the noise is like when a cat wanders nearby”, he says), and that the refuge have not passed inspections, their existence in the area is not supported by the local authorities, and in effect he wants to see them gone as quickly as possible. He says he has made his complaints legally and is waiting for them to be

The chicks that were killed were similar in age to these ones

resolved through the courts. But he makes it clear that he doesn’t see any other solution. Live Arico must go. Eugenio wants everything to be above board. He says he is just waiting for the paper work to be in order to begin the reformations needed to make this into a proper refuge for the number of dogs he is caring for (300, and he says he cannot take any more). He will pay for the damage caused by his dog – “we are always telling the public they have to take responsibility for the actions of their animals, I must do the same”, he told Island Connections. He says he has been visited by representatives from the Cabildo and council and believes the licences will arrive. He gave us the impression that he didn’t think there would be much point in trying to talk face to face to Juan. So it’s something of a stalemate. But there is of course another, perhaps bigger question.

Who should be looking after 300 abandoned dogs? And what about all the other dogs who don’t have the protection of the small number of refuges that do exist, mostly run by volunteers, around the island. Eugenio says this is a huge problem here, and one of the issues that needs to be addressed is that authorities who licence dogs, especially those classed as ‘dangerous breeds’ are not enforcing the rules that do exist. “Refuges are not the solution, we need tougher laws” he says. Dogs need to be chipped, and owners who abandon them fined for doing so. There should also be greater awareness placed on the responsibilities of dog ownership when someone is getting a dog in the first place. Coming up to Christmas, when kids are going to start seeing puppies as the ideal Christmas/Kings present this is par ticularly relevant. As things stand neither Eugenio’s nor Juan’s problems seem likely to be solved in the short term. And even if the courts do force Eugenio to move, and he sets up elsewhere, the bigger problems of so many abandoned dogs in Tenerife will continue to exist. We will keep you informed.

The first day of the new procedure led to delays averaging two hours in Canarian airports, with over 200 flights affected. The controllers had warned in the days leading up to the launch of the new system, which was introduced in Gran Canaria airport, that they were not fully familiar with the changes in routes required or with the requirements of the system. Their threat of chaos materialised from early morning despite instructions by AENA, the Airports’ authority, to ensure that back-up teams were on duty.

Spain’s transport minister José Blanco said he had “taken full note” of the delays caused in the Canaries and referred the problems to the country’s Air Safety regulator to see if action should be taken by the controllers. An AENA spokesman said that all the required training in the radio system had been given and extra staff were deployed on the day to ensure the system got off to a smooth start. “There is no reason why any delays should have been experienced, except if controllers were doing it deliberately” said a source.

Choo choo news

Train on track

The train link between Santa Cruz and the south of the island should be up and running by 2018, according to the Tenerife Cabildo. The corporation’s head Ricardo Melchior has revealed that one of the strings attached to Canarian MPs’ support for the 2011 Budget in the Spanish Parliament was a promise by Madrid to sign the funding agreement for the train project in early 2011. According to the Cabildo, the deal entails an annual payment between 2011 and 2018 of around 300 million euros by the State, which will fund 70 per cent of the overall cost of the project. It is expected the north to south train will carry 13 million passengers every year. Melchior challenged ecologists who oppose the train link on environmental grounds to explain why they are backing a similar project in Gran Canaria.

Bin there…

Ring Rescue

An employee of a jewellery shop in Puerto de la Cruz has the town’s binmen to thank for rescuing €1,500 worth of rings she inadvertently threw into a street wastepaper bin in the town. By the time the woman realised several hours later what she had done the bin, near Puerto harbour,

had been emptied by street cleaners and its contents transferred to the bigger bins near the Semiramis Hotel. According to the El Día paper, the town’s refuse collection lorries, which were due to start their late evening rounds, were delayed slightly as staff were sent to rummage through the larger bins in search of the missing bag, which was eventually located, with its collection of rings and other items of jewellery intact.

CNC

Rally Low turn-out

A rally to press for independence for the Canary Islands from Spain attracted only about a hundred supporters, despite a massive publicity campaign by the organisers in the weeks leading up the event. The rally, organised to commemorate the 46th anniversary of the adoption by the independence movement of the socalled Canarian National Flag (white, blue and yellow stripes with seven green stars in a circle), was led by Antonio Cubillo, the 80-year-old head of the Canarian Nationalist Congress (CNC), a political movement set up several decades ago to pressure for an end to Spanish occupation of the islands. Although very small, the rally did attract the attention of cruise passengers visiting Santa Cruz, who took photos of the protest after querying the meaning behind the demonstrators’ chants, in poor English, calling on “Spanish Go Out of Canary Island”.



Street party sanctions

Night night, sleep tight A

deje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga has announced a borough wide plan to eradicate the ‘botellón’ or the on-street drinking parties that are a scourge in parts of Spain. The mayor and council, with the full cooperation of the local and national police, are introducing a series of preventative and punative measures aimed at stamping out this practice in Adeje. “We are not against nighttime leisure” but the habits and practises that blemish the tourist image of Adeje, such as street drinking and outdoor macrofiestas, in inappropriate places, the mayor said. Very simply, he added, drinking on the street is

an offence and the offenders can be fined, though he did stress that the idea would be to put preventative measures in place, though if and when necessary “corrective measures” would be taken. Hundreds of young

people congregate at weekends at certain sites, including car parks, children’s playgrounds and even waste ground, to get drunk on alcohol purchased in supermarkets. In many cases, the participants park their vehicles on

the pubic highway next to the chosen site and use their car boots as makeshift bars, complete with music blaring from the stereo systems. The council have said that they are also in the process of passing a new byelaw on the use of public spaces. At the same time they are also making sure that clubs and pubs are complying with regulations regarding noise levels, breaches of which will also incur sanctions. These new measures are designed to ensure that residents and tourists have the right to a good night’s sleep, something that isn’t the case currently in many parts of the borough.

Tenerife Estate Agents, Clear Blue Skies Group have long been associated with charities in Africa, previously through Save the Children, and more recently with a charity called The Children of Watamu. A client of Clear Blue Skies, Sue Hayward r uns this charity in Watamu, Kenya tr ying to save and educate hundreds of children whose lives have been ravaged by disease and hunger. Some months ago, Sue asked Clear Blue Skies’, staff and friends if they could raise finance for the purchase of a minibus to transport the chil-

dren from outlying areas to their school. Previously, they were using ‘Tuk-Tuk’s’ a dangerous and antiquated mode of transport. The money was sent many months ago, and in

October, at long last, the bus arrived in Watamu in Kenya, and after frantically having the seats fitted, Sue and her team finally took it to let the kids see it. In Sue’s words, “thank you

Alan (Nicolson) for the kindness and generosity of Clear Blue Skies, you have made a lot of people happy today…we put lots of balloons on the bus, and when the children came home from school, they were all cheering. I took them for a ride in the bus, and the children were all singing at the top of their voices, it was brilliant, as we drove along, I thought, this is one of the happiest days of my life”. Clear Blue Skies Group and their staff and friends are proud to have helped in a small way, to make the lives of these lovely African children better, and continue to allocate money each time they make a sale to this worthiest of causes plus other fund raising ventures during the year.

Footpath for Palm Mar access T

he Ayuntamiento of Arona is to create a footpath along the access road to Palm Mar from the TF-66. The work has been allotted a budget of €360,000 and has been included in the Plan de Barrios. The announcement was made by the Alcalde, José Alberto González Reverón during a meeting with the local residents’ association. He explained that this work, which will be directed by the councillor for works, Ramón García, could commence before the end of this year. The new footpath, which will run along the length of the access road, is being designed with its surroundings in mind so the materials to be used will blend in and produce the minimum visual impact. At the same time, the existing overhead cables will be placed underground and the fronts of the two buildings situated alongside

El Médano hotel reprieve

Granadilla Council says it is delighted at the decision to grant the El Médano Hotel a reprieve from demolition.

the first section of the access road will be improved. There is some planting to be done too, with the creation of a green zone which will include typical local vegetation and hopefully reduce the visual impact of the asphalted road. Reverón stated that the council was, “satisfied to be able to carry out this project, which

has long been requested by the Palm Mar residents and which will contribute considerably to strengthening the natural and cultural values of the area”, bearing in mind that it is not just an urbanisation, but it is an area situated between the protected natural spaces of Montaña Guaza and the Malpais de Rasca.

Mayor Carmen Nieves Gaspar said that the ruling by the High Court against the Department of Coast’s order to pull several parts of the hotel down enabled the town to “look forward and contemplate a new use for the building” The concession granted to the company currently managing the hotel runs out in 2018 and the council is mulling over various options for the controversial building, which has been the focus of massive local pressure to save it from demolition. The options include an old people’s home, a catering school and a thalassotherapy centre. However, experts warn that the court

ruling does not resolve the demolition issue definitively and all will depend on the Department of Coast’s willingness to persist with its order at a higher level.

Three passengers required treatment after the coach they were travelling on caught fire on the TF1 motorway on a Saturday night in October. The blaze occurred near the main Fañabé junction at just before 9pm. The three, two men and a woman, were taken to the El Mojón Health Centre for treatment for respiratory problems caused by smoke inhalation and one of them was transferred to Hospiten Sur for further treatment. Traffic suffered serious disruption as the fire brigade tackled the fire, which totally destroyed the bus.

Many shops are believed to be keen to cash in on the presence of thousands of cruise tourists in Tenerife but are prevented from doing so by strict trading legislation. Although the law bans large stores (over 300 square metres) and franchises from operating on Sundays in the city, other shops say they would be prepared to open if the authorities approve the proposal. Passengers arriving on the liners have repeatedly highlighted the lack of shopping possibilities in Santa Cruz as a negative factor in the stop-over.

‘Bluehenge’ expert gives Tenerife talk

O

ne of the world’s leading authorities on Stonehenge visited Tenerife recently to give a talk on the latest archaeological finds in the vicinity of the historic site. Mike Parker-Pearson from Sheffield University gave a public lecture at the Science and Cosmos Museum in La Laguna, whose auditorium was packed for the occasion. Through an interpreter, Parker-Pearson discussed the theories surrounding the possible reasons for the construction of Stonehenge and reported on the excavations carried out since 2008 by 55 archaeologists from all over the UK on a new site dubbed Bluehenge, which is named after the colour of the fragments of giant Welsh stones found there. The newly discovered stone circle is thought to have been put up 5,000 years ago - around the same time work on Stonehenge began - and appears to be a miniature version of the latter. Although its monoliths have disappeared, the circle of holes remains. It is about 60 feet wide, has 27 holes, and the chips of blue stone found in the holes appear to be identical to the blue stones used in Stonehenge, suggesting that the creators of Stonehenge originally built two prehistoric stone circles.

Air Berlin blow for Tenerife North

September statistics

Company deputy chief for Spain and Portugal Pablo Casado gave the news at a press conference recently, explaining that “the time was not ripe for experiments”. “According to Casado, 2009 was “a difficult year’ at Tenerife North for the airline and the fall in passenger numbers has continued throughout this year. “The type of client that uses the north of the island is different to the type that flies with us to Tenerife South and we have to reappraise whether it is viable to continue targeting the former in the present climate” he said. The pull-out is a devastating blow to areas such as Puerto de la Cruz, which are heavily dependent on the German market. Cabildo tourism officer José Manuel Bermúdez put on a brave face at the news, insisting that the vast majority of tourists in the north fly in via the south anyway. However, he called on the Canarian government to launch a specific programme to inject new life into Tenerife North airport to remedy its current “competitiveness

According to the statistics provided by the Cabildo, hotel occupation rose by 6.53 per cent (non-hotel overnight stays were up 0.71 per cent). Although there was actually a slight drop in the number of Britons visiting the island, there was a healthy increase in German visitors of almost 18 per cent. According to tourism councillor Bermúdez, the figures reflect a steady increase in numbers arriving from abroad as well as positive indications from the Spanish peninsula after fewer Spanish visitors arrived this summer.

2011 tax budget

Tax hikes for wealthy in Spain’s 2011 budget By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

T

he Spanish government has approved its budget for 2011 which sees tax rises for the wealthy and spending cuts of €122 billion, or almost eight per cent. They are expected to boost revenue by €170-€200 million.

Island Connections readers who are high net worth taxpayers should review their tax planning to see what steps they can take to protect their wealth. Finance minister Elena Salgado said, “it is the most austere budget for recent years.” Spain is trying to repair its economy having scraped out of recession earlier this year by just 0.1 per cent. It aims to slash its deficit to six per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011, from an expected 9.3 per cent in 2010 and 11.1 per cent in 2009. For 2012 the deficit is expected to be 4.4 per cent, reaching 3 per cent by 2013.

Top rate of tax up two per cent The top rate of income tax levied by the state will jump two per cent from 43 per cent, with the introduction of two additional tax bands from 2011. Annual income from €120,000 to €175,000 will be taxed at 44 per cent and income over €175,000 will be taxed at 45 per cent. Currently there are four tax bands and tax rates, with tax rates starting at 24 per cent. In certain autonomous regions, such as Cataluña and Andalucia, the top rate of tax could be even higher as the autonomous communities control 50 per cent of income tax. In May, prime minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, warned of a tax on “those who actually have more”. There was much speculation about what this would involve having already raised tax on savings in last year’s budget. Many thought that a wealth tax rate, currently effectively reduced to zero, would be increased

Spain’s Finance minister Elena Salgado

but so far this has not happened. There is still room for the government to increase revenue further by reversing the 100 per cent wealth tax credit in the future. An exemption relating to capital gains tax on investment funds was abolished. Spain is not the only country to increase tax for higher earners next year KPMG’s individual income tax and social security rate survey 2010 shows an upward trend across Europe and other advanced economies where governments are seeking increased revenues from their country’s highest earners. The Spanish budget, which was approved by the Council of Ministers on 24th September, still has to go through parliament but it is expected to be passed later in the year. Tax rises are never good news and the more you earn the higher the rate of tax you have to pay. Following the global financial crisis, governments are focusing on higher earners to bear the brunt of tax rises to help fill treasury coffers. British expatriates in Spain

have also been suffering low bank interest and disappointing currency exchange rates. Fortunately you can often positively address the situation with an effective tax planning and wealth management strategy, structured to legitimately limit the amount of tax you pay while at the same time aiming to protect your wealth. A financial manager specialising in these areas such as Blevins Franks can advise you on your specific requirements.

f your old electrical appliance is on the blink, look out for grant offers under the Government’s plan to introduce more energy and water efficient appliances into the home, Plan Renove. The idea is that each home will replace old and inefficient appliances with a newer more efficient model. Appliances covered include fridges, freezers, ovens, dryers, washers and dishwashers. Help is also available to switch electric ceramic hobs for induction models. The minimum grant is €50 and the amount given depends on the model and level of efficiency you choose and whilst the most efficient models are more expensive they save money in the long run. All you need is proof of identity as a Spanish resident (original and photocopy) and to be over 18. Some regions do require proof of registration at your local council, empadronamiento, but at the time of writing this is not required in the Canaries. Your new appliance is delivered and the old one taken away to the tip. For replacement of fridges, combined fridge freezers, freezers with a new A++ energy model you will receive €125 and for an A+ model €105.

There are now stricter controls in place for those claiming unemployment benefits. Changes to the unemployment legislation mean that the €426 subsidy will continue for a further year for those who have used all their unemployment benefit entitlement, but there will be strict controls over those who turn down job offers or refuse to attend courses. Unemployed between 30 and 45 years old who have no dependents will now be unable to claim the subsidy and previously there was a period of 100 days ‘grace’ for the unemployed to sign on for courses, now this period has been reduced to 30 days. After that period those claiming benefit will be obliged to sign up for courses which can improve their possibilities of obtaining work. Failure to attend a course which fits in with the individuals work history and abilities will mean that their benefit could be withheld.

Investments

Look after the pennies…

A new savings scheme is gathering popularity. Whenever you pay for an item of over €15 with your credit card, you can opt to save the ‘change’. Your card is charged with the amount spent, rounded up to the next €5 and the balance is transferred to a savings account which pays up to five per cent APR, is freely available and is free of commissions and charges. How many of us have a jar at home full of small change which is pulled out once a year for Christmas, holidays or special occasions such as a child’s birthday? The banks’ idea is that this small change should be in their keeping and earning them and you some interest. Caixa Galicia is one of the banks now offering this service with an upper limit of €10,000 on the savings accounts. Check out your bank on-line or ask in your local branch to see if your bank now has a similar scheme in place.

Grant aid I

f you or your children are thinking of further education in the near future, don’t just stop at the administration authorities when looking for grant aid. Apart from grants from the various government administrations, banks and savings banks both offer grant aid to students. The grants are not limited to studies carried out in Spain, you can apply for financial aid to study a Master’s degree in the United States, to complement an Erasmus grant or to complete a hands-on practical year in journalism in the UK for example. The majority of the grants are aimed at mobility and whilst they

are not easy to obtain and there are a high number of candidates, the end result is worthwhile. The standards and regulations set are high and strict and the candidates selected are those who, according to the selection committee members, have the most merit, capacity, best curriculum and interest in the proposed project. Great personal references and the quality of the studies you wish to undertake are also factors taken into consideration. As an example, La Caixa offer 250 grants every year for postgraduate studies of the full cost of the course and a monthly payment of between €1,300 and €1,500. If you decide to study

Internet

away from Spain, the grant will also cover the cost of transport to and from your chosen place of study, health insurance and the cost of an academic orientation course. Many other savings banks offer similar help and there are also funds available for those involved in job placement schemes. Over 15s have grants available for language studies

in the United States and those in the fourth year of secondary education can opt for a grant to study abroad for a year. Most banks will insist on the parents having an account and some of the aid is means tested. If you or your child would like financial help towards studying in the future, check out what’s on offer now, open your account and get the ball rolling.

Connecting speeds T

 hree times slower connection speeds for Internet than in the sur rounding European countries is the depressing result of a recent study.

Average download speeds are 5.67 megabits and upload at 395 kilobits. We are behind Portugal, Germany, France and the United Kingdom in this aspect. Portugal, for example, has an average download speed of 15.67 megabits, Germany at 15.26 and France and the UK, 8.41 according to a report by adslzone.net, a specialist Internet website, after checking

out almost five million samples. Although the international Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) recommend an upload minimum capacity of one mega to enjoy to the full all the possibilities of the Web, Spain falls below half of that. The study claims that Movistar offers the fastest broadband download connections, Jazztel and Vodafone come out top

for the upload capabilities and the cable companies, Telecable, R, Euskaltel and Ono are outlined as the most efficient companies for fast connections, as they supply over 80 per cent of the speeds contracted. credit:wyrls

Hip prosthesis recall

Dear Dr. De La Flor Dear Dr. De La Flor,

is more likely. Menopause: Aging slows the metabolism, so you burn fewer calories, and any changes in lifestyle (e.g. exercising less) play a role.   Smoking Cessation: Nicotine curbs your appetite, so once you quit, you may feel increased hunger pangs, which leads to overeating. It also affects your metabolism, and some people don’t decrease their calorie intake to compensate for the slowdown. Lastly, nicotine is notorious for dulling the taste buds, so you may find food tastes better once you kick the habit, which can lead to overindulgence.   Make sure you share your goals with your GP. In your case, you might need a few lab tests to make sure ‘the engine’ is running well. He/she will help you prepare a personalised plan. Be tough, stay focused and positive. Best of luck to you!

I have a bad work environment and I feel down about it. Can antidepressants work for me? Sincerely, Susan

Dear Susan, A report recently published by the American Medical Association showed that the drugs work best for very severe cases of depression and have little or no benefit over placebo (inactive pills) in less serious cases. That report isn’t the last word on the topic, but it got plenty of media attention. When considering antidepressants, there are four essential questions that experts agreed on: 1. Do you truly have depression? You have to be diagnosed by a medical professional, somebody who understands the diagnostic criteria and you very well. I’m appalled when I hear patients telling me that their doctor prescribed antidepressants after a five minute visit. Life crises or challenges can trigger symptoms that look like depression, but don’t lend themselves to being treated with medication. It’s normal to feel sad or discouraged about these things, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a psychiatric disorder. Likewise, if there’s the death of a loved one, again, grieving is normal. It’s a human process, and grieving can sometimes be similar or overlap a little bit with symptoms of depression. So doctors shouldn’t necessarily assume that people who come in with these situational problems are the ones who need to be treated with medications. 2. Are you willing to stick with treatment long-term? To be honest with you, with antidepressants, patience and attitude matters more than medication! You have to be willing to stick with treatment for the long-term to get the most benefits. Most antidepressants don’t work immediately. 3. Would counselling/coaching help your mild depression, either alone or combined with an antidepressant?   4. Do you have a good working relationship with your doctor?  Look for a doctor who cares about you, motivates you and strives to find the right treatment for you. Make sure you renew your attitude every single day, since every morning as we wake up we have an opportunity to change things around and enjoy the process of that fight.  Best wishes!

When we are sleep deprived, hormones that affect appetite take over, making you hungrier (and unbearable!) the next morning. Solution - enjoy your sleep and if necessary take a nap! Stress: When life’s demands get too intense, our bodies go into survival mode: Cortisol, the ‘stress hormone,’ is secreted, which causes an increase in appetite. Solution - take it easy, don’t sweat the small stuff! Antidepressants: An unfortunate side effect from some antidepressants is weight gain. Talk to your doctor about switching to another drug if you think your antidepressant is causing weight gain. But realise

Hypothyroidism: Hypofunctioning makes you feel tired, weak and cold. Since metabolism slows, weight gain

Natural rhythm Natural rhythms are found for almost every biological function we have; sleep and alertness, body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, the production of hormones and digestive secretions. The major source of mental alertness comes from deep within the brain, from the master circadian pacemaker that controls key internal rhythms within us. ‘Circadian’ refers to a biological rhythm that repeats itself approximately every 24 hours. Our moods as well as our mental energy are also monitored by this biological clock or pacemaker. When we vandalise our rhythms, the body enters into an ‘Internal Desynchronisation’ a feeling of malaise that affects our physical, mental and emotional performance. For maximum performance, our biological rhythms should be as finely tuned as a Formula 1 race car.

Resolution:

For the next two weeks, let’s try to pamper our natural rhythms by striking a balance between work and family, family and leisure, eating habits, fun and moderation … soon we’ll be building healthy, empowering habits that will make our lifestyle be more productive and effective.

According to some media reports there is concern being voiced in Spain at the recall of 93,000 De Puy prosthetic hips worldwide because of fears they could affect the health of patients.

The company is part of the Johnson and Johnson group. The ‘ASR XL Acetabula Systema’ and ‘ASR XL Hip Resurfacing System’ were distributed in 2003 to 70 health centres across the country. Regions not included were Aragón, Cantabria, Ceuta, Melilla, Extremadura, Navarra and La Rioja. DePuy said that it was issuing the voluntary recall after new data from a British joint replacement registry showed about 1 in 8, or around 12 percent, of those who received the implants needed corrective procedures, called revision surgeries, within five years. That failure rate appears to be about twice the industry average, says Kevin J. Bozic, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon and vice chairman of orthopaedics at the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center, who has studied revision rates in hip replacement. According to the company’s website, “data recently received shows that more people than expected who received the ASR Hip System experienced pain and other symptoms that led to a second hip replacement surgery, called a revision surgery. New data shows that five years after implantation, approximately 12 per cent of patients (one in eight) who had received the ASR resurfacing device and 13 per cent of patients who had received the ASR total hip replacement needed to have a revision surgery. For this reason, DePuy Orthopaedics is recalling its ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. The Spanish Ministry for Health has issued an alert to health professionals saying that they should check to see if they find more problems, but consider that not all the patients given the model need to be operated on again. If your replacement was prior to 2003 there’s no need for concern. However the best, if you think you have the model concerned, is go and see your doctor.

Lose weight, not money! I

Unblocking pain cupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical A technique for unblocking chi (ch’i or qi) by inserting needles at particular points on the body to balance the opposing forces of yin and yang.

Chi is an energy that allegedly permeates all things. It is believed to flow through the body along 14 main pathways called meridians. When yin and yang are in harmony, chi flows freely within the body and a person is healthy. When a person is sick, diseased, or injured, there is an obstruction of chi along one of the meridians. Traditional Chinese medicine has identified some 500 specific points where needles are to be inserted for specific effects. Acupuncture has been practiced in China for more than 4,000 years. Today, the needles are twirled, heated, or even stimulated with weak electrical current, ultrasound, or certain wavelengths of light. Some use tuning forks over the acupoints. Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture offers a unique perspective on the nature of health and illness that is different from what we would deem to be the more traditional Western perspective. It holds the human body in great reverence, respecting and promoting its endless capacity for rejuvenation and recovery. The symptoms are recognised as the body’s language. Through differentiation of signs and symptoms a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine can analyse the root cause of the condition. By harmonising the body, mind and spirit, Chinese doctors are able to combat or prevent illness to improve the quality and duration of life. Acupuncture is now widely used in clinical medicine and accepted within the broad description of ‘modern medicine’. For example, a patient with chronic bronchitis can continue taking his ‘normal’ medicine at the same time as undergoing acupuncture and may be surprised at the result! A patient with slipped discs, if treated with acupuncture, may be cured without any need for surgical intervention. A patient with essential (primary) hypertension may take normal medicine and at the same time treat the condition with acupuncture and could soon find that she or he will no longer need the medicine. If you have any questions about acupuncture or would like to know more/make an appointment call 922717906 or 679787290 and ask for Dr.Li. His office is based in Complejo Palo Blanco Fase 2, Avda.Los Pueblos, Costa Adeje.

get the odd comment, when I am out and about, about the articles I write here, but I have never had so many calls as I did from my last column. If you remember, in the last issue we asked for those who are looking for significant body transformation to contact us, whether that be for gaining muscle and lean mass or wanting, as most do, to lose weight. We offered four places on one of our courses with three months gym membership, however the response, as I have said, was so great we want to accommodate as many people as we can.

The Challenge

12 weeks course Nutrition, lifestyle & exercise

There is a cost though. Each person who wants to take part in the challenge must buy three months of VIP gym membership at €177 per person. Why? One does not need to be a personal trainer and life coach for nearly 10 years to know that one thing that motivates people is money! If you start

something that you don’t pay for, well it doesn’t matter if you finish! For example; we have just had a ‘re-opening the gym offer’ of one month free membership for all new members, and you’d be surprised as to how many people are more in-

Starts: 16th November until: February

So here is the challenge. If you wish you can take part in our programme that will start on the 16th November and run through Christmas until February. In total it will be 12 weeks of courses, in nutrition, lifestyle and exercise. This is normally worth €260 per person, but to anyone that wants to take the challenge through Island Connections, this is FREE. Contact us now on 922 789 000.

ligiously followed a Mediterranean diet and those who did not. The results showed that men following the diet gained an average of 128 grammes a year and those who did not gained more than double that amount, registering 287grammes a year. The results were not so marked in women where the dieters gained an average 224 grammes a year and non-dieters 300 grammes a year. The Mediterranean diet consists of eating mostly grains, fruits, beans and vegetables with fish or small portions of lean red meat dressed with moderate amounts of olive oil, and can also help to lower your cholesterol level, your risk of heart disease and cancer.

terested in the offer than in the gym! Some people are even prepared to pay at reception without even looking to see if it will suit their needs. So there is method behind the madness! Back to our programme. All those who want to sign up will be invited to an open day where we will assess your body-type to set your goals and objectives, and begin the journey together. Four of the group will be rewarded at the end of February with annual VIP membership (€699). Two of the victors will be decided by the group themselves as to who has lost or gained the most within each category and two will be decided by our team, as to who we believe has made the most progress personally. Yes this is subjective, but decisions will be final!

So that’s the challenge. I invite you to accept it. I can guarantee that if you follow my programme of exercise and nutrition you will be well on your way to achieving your goals. If you want to lose weight I am so confident of the studies and what I practice and preach that if you do not lose weight and feel better in the time that we are together I can guarantee you 100 per cent of your money back. Whatever gym you are going to or whatever exercise you are able to fit into your routine, ask your trainer or doctor as to what more you could do to help you reach your goals, before those New Year resolutions come around again!

Bfit! and I hope to see you soon.

Property purchase vs rental credit:svilen001

The Nobel Prize winners for Economic Sciences

Diamond, Mortensen and Pissarides

Analysing the crisis

The end of fiscal rebates for homebuyers

D

uring the remainder of this year, we could witness an increase in house sales in the Spanish market, although it is extremely doubtful that this increase would be accompanied by a rise in the prices of those properties. This possible increase in sales will be due to the ending of the financial incentives for buying a home in the year 2011, something which some economists already requested in the year 2004-2005 to increase State tax collections, and because they could see an overheating in the residential construction sector which would provoke a rise in prices.

These financial incentives are only valid for people who make tax declarations in Spain (Impuesto de la Renta de las Personas Físicas or IRPF), and will not be totally eliminated in the case that you bought your home prior to 2011, but the amount of rebate that can be claimed will depend on the level of income earned and declared, based on a scale. Those who do not make tax declarations in Spain are not affected by these financial incentives in any case. Taking into account the current legislations in the country in which you make your tax return, something to consider – for example in the case of investors, is the possibility of

creating a management company for property rental so that you may be able to claim some other type of financial benefit which the Canary Islands offer, despite the fact that the financial benefits previously enjoyed by these so-called financial societies have disappeared. Actually, one focal point which the Spanish government is trying to promote is the geographic mobility of workers, and one of the ways to help this is by promoting property rental instead of property purchase, because a worker who is a property owner is more likely to resist moving away from his home to search for work.

ust a few days after the awarding of the Nobel Prize Jwasn’t in Economic Sciences (a category which, in fact, created by Alfred Nobel, but introduced at a

later stage by the Swedish bank Sveriges Risbank), in this second year of the economic crisis, there was some surprise that the prize was given to economists whose work was focused on explaining ‘markets with search costs’, looking at why so many people are unemployed at the same time that there are a large number of job openings. The work of the winning economists, Peter A. Diamond, Dale T. Mortensen and Christopher A. Pissarides, as well as analysing unemployment benefits, examined qualifications of unemployed persons and the relationship between length of time on the dole and the qualifications of the job seeker. The latter is hugely important in seeking work and particularly when it comes to individuals knowing where they can viably look for a job, with the assumption that the qualified job seeker knows her or his particular professional sector and market. One also has to take into consideration the time that many may take to retrain and acquire new skills and qualifications in order to change their targeted sector. Applying this notion to the Spanish labour market, where, as in most of the economies of the developed world, the crisis is a result of excessive production which cannot be met by a restricted demand due to excessive financial planning, we can see that in part it is relevant, despite the fact that a large number of unemployed come from the construction and related industries, and that the cost of redeploying workers from this sector to others, including retraining, is relatively high. However the worker must be disposed towards a move in terms of geography as well as sector to make this work. If we add to this the fact that new production initiatives require capital which is actually difficult to find, we begin to understand the crux of the Spanish crisis: an excess of production capacity, a lack of finance and a glut of workers in a sector that is over subscribed.

Fiscal Measures

The package of fiscal measures proposed by the Spanish government for 2011 is considered by ministers to be the most adequate for recovering from the economic crisis and recession. Financial experts, however, predict some possible negative effects. In a nutshell, those measures are:

I

ncreased tax rates for high earners (those earning more than €120,000 and €150,000 with one and two per cent increases respectively.

F

iscal penalties on irregular incomes of more than €300,000.

M

odifications af fecting members of societies for variable capital investment, who will no longer be able to delay payment of plus valias obtained from their investments.

T

he end of financial incentives for purchasing a property but better circumstances for those renting.

N

ew limit for recovering the cost of commercial funds in Societies when acquiring shares in European Union entities.

C

ontinuation of the special regulations for small and medium sized companies (Pymes) with a net annual business of less than €8 million.

C

hanges in IVA and special taxes. Following the changes introduced in July 2010, there will only be some slight technical adjustments related to gas and certain imports.

With these measures in place, the only area that will benefit is that of small and medium sized companies.

es will add it to their portfolio of properties. It’s totally free to advertise with them, and because you are involved in the work, the commission on sales is only two per cent. In these difficult times a reduced commission can be the difference between a sale and a property that just sits on a site unsold. It also represents a saving for the buyer as a property is cheaper to advertise, and a saving for the seller when the property is sold. Danny and Pablo will still

purchases and obtain a refund of their deposits. The company told us, “from our experience some developers do offer refunds when there’s a clear breach of contract or are willing to negotiate, although it is more often the case that they will insist on holding on to the deposits and will not issue a refund willingly or they have entered into bankruptcy and cannot repay these deposits.”

Negotiations and investigations

A good lawyer will always tr y to reach a satisfactor y out of court settlement with the other party, using litigation only as the last resort. Should the negotiations not be fruitful and an agreement cannot be reached there are a number of points to consider before placing a lawsuit against the developer as the outcome will most likely be against the purchaser. Any experienced lawyer should always ensure that the famous ‘Force Majeure’ excuse cannot be used by the developer - this condition is normally written into the contract giving the developer this reason to justify late completion. Another point to contemplate is whether the habitation licence has been granted or not - again your lawyer will make all the relevant enquiries regarding the developer and the licences for the property before advising you to pursue a Court case. If you are reading this article and you have paid a hefty deposit for a property that you should already be living in and enjoying – providing you have fulfilled your end of the contract by meeting your payments on time - you should contemplate seeking legal advice.

Independent advice

De Cotta McKenna y Santafé recommend that you seek independent legal advice in matters as important as these for you to be sure that your lawyer is always acting in your best interest.

Last Resort

Litigation is a complex procedure and is used as a last resort when no agreement can be met between the parties - purchasers resort to litigation and hope for a favourable ruling which will result in a refund of their deposits. De Cotta McKenna y Santafe have specialised experience in these matters and would be happy to advise you on your particular situation during a fixed fee consultation or by sending your details and purchase contract to tenerife@decottalaw.net.

Act today

Should the developer be close to bankruptcy it is essential that you act fast and instruct a good lawyer to inter vene on your behalf – the phone call could save you thousands. Based in San Eugenio, their expert team can be contacted on 922 719 520 /Fax: (00 34) 922 724 511, Email: tenerife@decottalaw.net, Website: www.decottalaw. com .

International Library Day

International Library day was on October 24th, and there are already over 300,000 people registered to use the network of 168 libraries here. Why not join your local library – it’s free and easy to do, and opens up doors to the world of literature for you and your family, and a lot more besides. Adeje library, for in-

bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknown to the neighbours, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small (West Coast) army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no-one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

The timple is usually used as a typical rhythmic instrument by Canarian folklore groups, but Gomis takes the timple to new heights and plays the instrument like few others. He is the director of various folk groups here in Tenerife, and has interwoven the dance music of the Renaissance which was originally composed for lute, flute or violin with Canarian and Venezuelan folklore.

A cheque for €340 was presented to Live Arico, for which they are truly thankful.

N

owadays, many specialists agree that it is important that we make time every day to play with our pets, especially cats and dogs.

When our furry friends are young, playing with toys allows them to learn some basic hunting techniques and if you have more than one pet, playfights between them allow them to learn self-defence. Neither cats nor dogs were created to spend the majority of their lives within a human’s home. They will always maintain their basic instincts – to hunt and to defend their territory, no matter what their age nor how well fed and cared for they are. However, with no toys to play with (especially if you leave the animal alone at home for long periods while you are at work), boredom, a sedentary lifestyle, stress and anxiety may set in. Playing with your pet brings his five senses to a maximum state of alertness, allowing perfect coordination of his whole body. Because dogs are usually taken for regular walks, they get a certain amount of exercise but play is also important for their state of mind. Playing and exercise are also great for maintaining our pets’ bodies in good form, keeping their weight in check and muscles strong. If your animal is overweight, regular exercise will help to correct this as well as the consequences of obes-

ity, stimulating articulations and the cardiovascular system. Cats love toys which move or which they can chase, and these need not cost much – in fact they need not cost anything at all. Most cats are extremely happy to play with something of ‘yours’, for example a crumpled paper ball. Cats also love to climb and to sharpen their claws, so a combined contraption such as a cat tree with a dangling toy may well do the trick, as well as diverting your furry friend’s claws away from your furniture! If you don’t feel too energetic, try a laser toy which you can usually find at veterinary clinics or pet shops, just be careful not to shine it into your animal’s eyes. You will be surprised at how entertaining a five minute game with your cat can be. Dogs, however, need not only toys but things to chew on, and these need to be safe. A sturdy ball which

can be chased and chewed as well is ideal. For the benefit of your animal’s health, it is recommended that owners set aside several five minute sessions a day for play.

Fresher than fresh I

f you live in the Los Gigantes to Alcalá area, or you are visiting, and what you and your friends or family have in mind is a delicious Italian meal which hasn’t just come out of a freezer and been placed in a microwave oven, we have the answer! Sauco, on the main road in Playa de la Arena in the area known as El Varadero, has been open for three years and is owned by Jorge Campos. Parking is easy, and Sauco enjoys fabulous views of the natural rocky coastline and across the sea to La Gomera, creating the perfect location for a quiet or romantic evening meal. Light and air y, the décor is nautical with the accent on fishing. The seating for one of the tables resembles a typical Canarian fishing boat, and the rattan ceiling is hung with fishing nets through which trailing plants wind their way like vines. The atmosphere

is fur ther enhanced by the tempting aromas emanating from the kitchen. Jorge is a firm believer in the importance of fresh food, and the difference that makes to a meal. Everything is fresh and cooked to order at Sauco, just like grandma used to make in the days before freezers were invented. Sauco specialises in pasta and pizza, and you may even catch a glimpse of the chef lovingly making the pasta, pastry and bread on the premises. It just couldn’t be any fresher! The menu contains a good range of home made pasta dishes plus spaghettis and macaronis, with delicious toppings and sauces to suit all tastes. The starters are all light and designed to prepare your palate for what is to come rather than fill you up, for example soups and salads, Serrano ham, padrón peppers, seafood or nachos. Sauco also serves fresh fish and seafood, just check out the

board for the fresh fish of the day which may include grilled sea bass or golden bream. There are also steaks, lamb chops, Iberian pork, chicken, tuna and bogavante (like lobster) dishes as well as 22 delicious homemade pizzas, so what do you choose? We selected our starter from the daily board, Goat’s cheese salad, and followed with a Carbonara and a Pizza Sauco. We decided to order a few dishes and share them between us. The salad was beautifully presented, the grilled goat’s cheese perched atop a selection of crisp fresh leaves, the most predominant of which was rucula (rocket), and garnished with slices of orange, halved cherry tomatoes and walnuts – a deliciously light way to start a meal, and a dish to be savoured. Our Carbonara certainly didn’t disappoint us either – it was mouthwatering, rich, creamy and yet light, a wonder ful example of how fresh pasta makes all the dif-

ference. The Pizza Sauco arrived in all its splendour, made with typical fine Italian pastry and topped with tomato, ham, cheese and garnished with chopped fresh tomato and rucula, an absolutely wonderful combination. Don’t leave Sauco without trying one of their homemade desserts – for example lemon sorbet, banana flambée or tiramisu, and to accompany your meal, there is a wide selection of predominantly Spanish and Italian wines as well as a full bar. Sauco is thoroughly recommended to anyone who appreciates food made with really fresh ingredients, served with a smile. So for a memorable meal just like Mamma used to make, take a trip to Sauco Italian Restaurant. It is open from 6pm to 2am every evening except Tuesday. For reservations, call 922 860744. A local deliver y ser vice is available in the area from Los Gigantes to Alcalá.

Dear Editor n 2007 we sold our apar tment in Los Cristianos, all done correctly, or so we thought. Spending six months in

England, we missed a letter, apparently sent to us at the above address, where we now live. The post box was broken into during our stay in the UK for an unknown reason. On arriving back to Tenerife we find an embargo on our bank account. After a gruelling five hours of stress (we are pensioners) to and from to the Cultural Centre, solicitors, bank and department of registro in the Valdes Centre, we arrived at the conclusion that the buyer of our apartment and his solicitor had failed to change the name of ownership over, leaving the property and yearly taxes accruing in our name. The sum of €350 is being wrongly taken from our account.

Also is there anyone out there who can help us? We also found vagrants living in our car which they had practically destroyed and would like to thank the Ford garage for the fine job they have done restoring and respraying it to as good as new.

Now we have to pay €80 for a ‘historia’ of the apartment and have to fight to have our money reimbursed, if ever. The ‘error’ was only found out when the apartment was again sold on in June of this year and the ‘nota simple’ revealed a debt on the property of the annual hacienda taxes unpaid. As the property

Katy column

Hello everyone, I

hope you and yours are all well. In less than two months it will be Christmas, and many of us will be thinking about a diet. In my case, I spend a lot of time thinking about one, but never seem to get around to it.

I was reading the Daily Express one afternoon and came across an article that stated that endocrinological studies show that dieting reduces the levels of hormones, such as leptin. This is the hormone that helps to control food intake, and tells you when you’re full. Some people have better levels than others, the study showed. It was while reading this that I had a sudden insight into my own bad eating habits. I could now happily blame my bad leptin levels for all my extra pounds and carry blissfully on, or I could examine the problem properly. Personally, anyone can have my last penny, or the coat off my back, but when it comes to chocolate, in any of its many sinfully delicious disguises, I find myself fighting my inner demons to be generous, and often lose the battle. Then I realised, that the ‘full’ feeling we are all programmed genetically and hormonally to feel and which I’ve always thought was lacking due to medical reasons, really does exist. My Grandad loved boiled tripe and onions, and my Nan cooked it for the family at least twice a week. I hated it. Likewise brawn and cabbage, pig’s trotters in all their greasy glory, and particularly pigeon pie. My Grandad had an air gun which he took onto the moors near our cottage and shot pigeons for the pie. Nan wasn’t a good pastry cook, and the crust was immense, and the filling was a watery mess. We kids spent half the time picking pellets out of it, alongside the occasional feather. Isn’t it an eye opener when you finally realise that faced with food you hate,

how that ‘full’ feeling arrives almost immediately? So my conscience has forced me to reveal to myself that I’m just weak willed, and that I’ll probably be a chubby person for the rest of my life. Give up egg and chips? It’s the one meal, apart from corned beef hash, that I can guarantee I’ll cook with flair. Yet on a serious note, some children, even those as young as ten, are being admitted to hospital with eating disorders like anorexia. The media is full of glamorous thin young icons, and both children and adults are feeling the pressure to look like they do. Fern Britton had surgery to have a gastric band fitted and has now lost in the region of five stone in weight, and does look fabulous. But then I read of a 37 year old mum of three who died having the same operation. She had hoped that losing weight would give her more energy to cope with her three young children. The old fashioned term, “moderation in all things” has never seemed so relevant. And as for me, well I’m trying to take myself in hand and have made my mind up to be sensible. At last I’ve made a start on the calorie cutting mindset I need to have. I’ve left the ice out of my Baileys Cream!! Until next time, take care of yourselves and especially, of each other.

Mongolian BBQ Restaurant

If you build it they will come

I

n 2008 nearly 14,000 people attended the Tenerife Construction Trade Fair and this year organisers of Construye 2010 are expecting that number to increase, with clear signs that the world economic crisis is on the wane.

Mongolian BBQ Restaurant

I

Mongolian triumph

n the sparkling white interior of the new Mongolian BBQ Restaurant in Los Cristianos three expert chefs specially brought in from Taiwan let fly with metre-long blades over a 600ºC circular hotplate. In this brand new restaurant, the sweet smell of success is in the air, combining with the aroma from the sizzling ingredients on the grill and the myriad selection of spices in use and clients watch fascinated as their food selection is stir fried and flipped to perfection. Legend has it, that centuries ago the nomads of Mongolia led by Genghis Khan prepared their food on shields heated over open fires, and this spectacular special hotplate is inspired by that. As they swept over the Steppes the Mongols’ gastronomy influenced and became influenced by both the Russian and Asian cuisine and the wide range of dishes on the menu of this restaurant reflect that. All the major Chinese cuisines are on offer, as is Thai food, Japanese (including an excellent Sushi bar) and Mongolian specialities. At €13 for adults and €8 for kids it’s a bit pricier than the average wok-style offering, but the difference is reflected in the quality and range of what’s on offer – after all you

get what you pay for. There’s an extensive à la carte menu where spice levels for all tastes and experience can be catered for, but the big draw is definitely the Mongolian barbecue special. Clients have the taste-bud tingling choice of two soups, selections of salads, rice, noodles, Asian and occidental vegetables, classic and exotic meats and fish and shellfish and desserts. Eat as much as you want, mix and match whatever you want - here you are the chef. To complement the fresh prime material ingredient selection, the amazing range of 18 sauces includes classics such as Teriyaki, Satay, Sweet and Sour, Oyster and Black Bean, but they also offer a spicy Mongolian Curry and Kung Pao. The dining tables are on a partially covered, exotically furnished and exceedingly spacious terrace and the waiting staff attentive, without being intrusive. The price includes a drink or a soft drink and there is also a rounded wine list including choices from Tenerife’s excellent Bodegas Frontos and Navarra, Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Catalunya, Penedes, Samontano, Rueda, South African chemín blanc, Mateus’ well loved rosé, cavas, champagne and Japanese Sapporo beer and sake.

This is a lot more than just a restaurant; it’s a themed, night out experience, something that was reflected by the amazing inaugural night entertainment starring the top German band Corvus Corax. Leather and pelt clad, with wild hairstyles and amazing and unusual instruments, the members of the band, who had come over to the island especially for the opening, played music that seemed to go straight to the guts and hindbrain without passing through the ears and foot tapping appeared to be almost unavoidable. Corvus Corax will be performing in the Magma on November 19th and if you are one of the few who haven’t heard this talented bunch, check out Youtube, where they have over five million devoted followers. Not to be missed by lovers of good food whether they are resident or tourist, the Mongolian BBQ Restaurant is on the corner of the Avenida San Francisco and Avenida Amsterdam, in front of the Apartamentos Reverón. Opening hours are 5.30pm - 1am and reservation is recommended. 922 750 036.

The trade fair is being held from November 18th to 21st in the Recinto Ferial in Santa Cruz and will see a coming together of all branches involved in the architectural evolution, building and fitting out of properties. To this end the latest in modern design, new and fashionable materials, architectural innovations and furniture and interiors will be on display for four days, open to professionals in the trade and the public. Construye 2010 is, without doubt, the biggest trade fair of its kind in the Canary Islands and the most important. Given how badly the crisis affected the construction industry here in Spain as much as elsewhere, it is a very healthy sign of the times that this fair is taking place and with such a high level of participation. The show promises to show visitors a ‘constructive’ future, helping them overcome the challenges of the present, and forget the problems of the past. With every conceivable branch of construction being on hand, all under one roof, this is a unique opportunity to see what the industry has in store and how it can benefit you, whether you are looking to build or renovate an apartment, a luxury villa, or a hotel. The fair is also an excellent venue if you are looking to buy a new or second-hand property, with many top estate agents also taking stands for the event. There are over 100 stands in all. Entry this year is free, and really this is a fantastic opportunity to browse through the best of what’s on offer. During one visit you can chat to top architects, speak directly to builders and builder suppliers, check out the latest in interior design and furniture and with absolutely no obligation to do anything but look and ask as many questions as you like. Even if you have no immediate plans to build or improve your home, why not take time to visit the professionals and find out what’s new and up and coming. Hours of opening are from 10am to 8pm, and the event has the backing of the regional and insular government, the Santa Cruz chamber of commerce as well as the regional construction industry federation.

Daniela Herzberg & Roger Keller are based in the south-west of Tenerife. They both are certified Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology consultants and Cosmic Healers and work and teach in Tenerife and Germany. Their comprehensive knowledge about Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology and the five elements is a result of their work with Derek Walters, one of the most respected Feng Shui masters in the world. They have published several books about Chinese Astrology and how to increase your health and vitality with the five elements, with recipes from all over the world.

ď &#x161; Rat (1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008) Do not place yourself in a position of risk be it personally or professionally. Wait until December when you have more support. There are some connections to be made now but be mindful. ď &#x161; Ox (1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009) You might feel the urge to just sit out the situation. That may not be a bad idea but not at the expense of your duties and obligations. However do remember that you should always think clearly. ď &#x161; Tiger (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998) There seems to be more than one opportunity to expand your horizons, but you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to decide which way to go. It would be advisable for you to take the more conservative route.

ď &#x161; Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999) This is a good time for personal connections. Those looking to meet someone new, can find their mate. If you are already seeing someone and hope to take things further, now is a good moment. ď &#x161; Dragon (1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000) Do you have a habit you wish to quit? Are you looking to change jobs but have not had the courage? Looking to start something new? Use this time to push yourself forward! ď &#x161; Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001) Things do not seem to be quite right. There will be obstacles and minor mishaps in your endeavours. Worst of all, you seem to be in the limelight for this reason. Lay low and take it easy. ď &#x161; Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002) Work towards executing your plans now. It is a great time to meet new people, sign contracts, make a new start and form partnerships. Make sure you do all the necessary paperwork. ď &#x161; Sheep (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 Do not slack or procrastinate on what needs to be done. You will need to make sure you are on the ball, especially if you are born in the month of January or April. ď &#x161; Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004) Be careful when you are on the go, especially if you are tired or distracted. Enjoy yourself but make sure you are not behind the wheel and have a friend along. ď &#x161; Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005) Mistakes you make this month may come back to bite you in the near future - especially if they are related to matters of the heart. So be careful with words and deeds. ď &#x161; Dog (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006) You may be presented with good opportunities, but you are second guessing yourself. By wanting everything and not willing to let go on one path, you might be foregoing both. ď &#x161; Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007) It is a time of focus and direction. Use it to move ahead and take a positive step forward. You may find yourself meeting someone new. Take it lightly and do not jump into things. The Chinese solar year starts around February 4. If your birthday is in January or at the beginning of February your Chinese animal sign belongs to the year before. Example 27.1. 1967 still belongs to the year of the horse.

Wind Roadster targets customers looking for a compact everyday car and, as a two-seat coupĂŠ-roadster with a length of 3.83 metres, it slots into the Renault range between Twingo and Clio. Thanks to its ingenious, electrically-operated roof system, which pivots open in just 12 seconds, Wind Roadster boasts unprecedented versatility: in the lowered position, the roof panel rests above the boot, meaning that boot volume is always 270dm3 VDA, whether the roof is up or down. Wind Roadster has head-turning looks. Its blue-tinged gaze, muscular profile and rear-end forms give it an emphatically modern profile.

T

he Wind Roadster is wholly dedicated to driving pleasure and is an ingenious illustration of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new brand signature, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Drive the Changeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Unique styling details include the roof-cover cowls, chrome exterior door mirror housings and badging on the side which recalls the rotational movement of the roof-opening mechanism. Meanwhile, there is an unmistakable â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cockpitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; feel about the interior. The instruments are reminiscent of the world of motorbikes, the sport seats feature integrated headrests, while the low-set driving position and sporty layout of the controls are typical of roadsters. The new coupĂŠ-roadster is built on the same platform as Clio II Renaultsport, and its chassis is perfectly suited to the power outputs of the two engines which are available, the 1.2 TCe 100 and the 1.6 VVT 133hp. The Wind has the best weight to body-rigidity ratio for a coupĂŠ-roadster, allowing owners to profit from an outstanding ride plus very low fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Wind Roadster takes full advantage of Renaultâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise in the fields of active and passive safety too, while the excellence of its chassis and its powerful brakes ensure exceptionally reassuring handling. It has an extensively-equipped standard specification with front fog lights, body-colour 'JOBODF rear spoiler, chrome exhaust UBJMPSNBEF tailpipe, electrically adjust-

It will be the French firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest car, at 4.89 metres long, 1.83 metres wide and 1.49 metres high.

The Latituide is being billed by Renault as a vehicle that will deliver â&#x20AC;&#x153;a truly high-end package that will position it as the spearhead of international Renaultâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saloon car rangeâ&#x20AC;?. Some sources say that the car is designed to evoke memories of the big (and successful) Renault 25, which offered a purely French take on the luxury large car format. The Latitude was presented as the Cannes Film Festival 2011 official car, and is likely to be transporting many professionals to and from the festival of the big screen.

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 629 :: 05/11/2010 - 19/11/2010

Boxing By George Reed

Today’s mortals vs. marvels of yesteryear I

am a sports romanticist, so I am always interested in listening to the arguments as to whether the sportsmen of today are better than those of yesteryear.

I

n most sports there can be no argument, for instance in athletics it can actually be timed or measured to prove that today’s stars have improved on those of the past. I don’t think it’s so in the boxing game, a contact sport in its simplest form and, I believe the fighters of bygone days generally were superior to the boxers of today.

N

o-one will convince me that the great ‘Sugar’ Ray Robinson, the world welterweight and middleweight champion from the 1940s and 1950s, wouldn’t have at least held his own, against the two best boxers in the world today who are starting to draw comparisons with legends of old, namely Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

O

nly a couple of weeks ago in the Daily Mail someone wrote that it was ‘poppycock’ for people to still say that Muhammed Ali was ‘the greatest’. I thought by now that people would have accepted that when he boasted “I am the greatest”, it was made more in fun than a gigantic ego trip. He may not have been the greatest of all time, but don’t tell me that he wouldn’t have bamboozled the heavyweights on the scene today. With his lightning reflexes and brilliant combination punches, along with his excellent defensive talents, they would be easy prey for Ali. Going back to Ali’s era, there were at least half a dozen heavyweights who would have easily won at least one of today’s world title belts. The likes of Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Sonny Liston, Larry Holmes and Ken Norton would have really caused a stir today.

O

n the other end of the scales there’s Jimmy Wilde, the Welshman, who every boxing historian classes as the greatest flyweight ever. Throughout his career of 167 fights he was beaten on only four occasions. He took on all-comers, and over 100 of his victims were knocked out. Wilde won the world flyweight title in 1916 at the National Sporting Club, London, and in 1920 he toured the USA where he created a great impression when winning his 12 contests. Through working in the Welsh coalmines he built up tremendous muscle power in his back and shoulders. His boxing style was his own. He carried his hands very low, almost level with his hips, and was an attacking fighter, weaving and swaying as he came forward, and he packed a punch like a mule’s kick with impeccable timing. I doubt whether any flyweight of today would handle the small pale faced man with an almost undernourished look about him, who will always be remembered as ‘the ghost with a hammer in his hand’.

And they’re off

Ninco World Cup 2010

Interviú

Barcelona spy scandal

Barcelona players were spied on by a detective agency under the previous chairman, according to one of Spain’s biggest-selling magazines, Interviú.

T

The Ninco slot car World Cup is taking place in Teror, Gran Canaria on November 19th and 20th.

This is an international competition organised by NINCO, one of the leading slot car manufacturers. Teams are coming from all over the world to test their motor skills at the 1:28 and 1:32 scales. The best 16 will take part in the final and compete for the title of World Champion.

Formula One

Alonso hopes for Interlagos repeat

Following his surprise win in Korea, Fernando Alonso could be crowned world Formula One champion in Interlagos in Brazil if results go his way, or he could suffer a fate similar to his Red Bull rivals and end up with no points.

The incident-packed inaugural F1 race in Korea saw both Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel fail to collect a single point between them leaving race winner Alonso at the top of the drivers’ table with two Grand Prix races to go. “The new points system means that, of late, almost any one of the top four has been able to leapfrog the championship leader, who happens to be me after Korea” said Alonso. The Spaniard, holder

of two world titles already, will be crowned champion if he wins in Brazil and Webber finishes no higher than fifth. However, he prefers to put his faith in two podium finishes in the last two races to secure the title. “I said a few weeks ago that, with the way the season has turned out, anyone who earns three podiums in the last three races should be in a very strong position to win the title and I still believe it” he added.

Spain bid under FIFA spotlight 2018 World Cup

Allegations of collusion to fix votes may have severely dented Spain’s chances of hosting the 2018 World Cup.

A Sunday Times undercover investigation which appears to show that senior figures behind Spain and Portugal’s joint bid negotiated an agreement with Qatar, which wants to host her tournament in 2022, to secure votes for each other’s campaigns is being investigated by FIFA. The newspaper has been

asked to provide a copy of a film in which Michel Zen-Ruffinen - FIFA general secretary from 1998 until 2002 - suggests that a deal had been struck to exchange votes, which is against FIFA rules. The revelations came just days after two senior FIFA members were suspended over allegations of vote-selling.

Charity Golf Comp

Lions San Miguel de Abona

The San Miguel de Abona Lions Charity Golf tournament, held on Sunday 03 October at Adeje Golf went very well indeed.

Winners

1st. Mick McQuade, 2nd. Jan Brockwell, 3rd. Jim Fenner. Special thanks to the main sponsors Tate Properties,Los Cristianos, as well as Iceland and The Golf Shop. After the major golf event a separate presentation took place, to Shammie ‘Help The Hero’s’ from President Susan Solomon.

Susan Solomon presents a cheque to Shammie

he magazine has published details of surveillance operations mounted in 2008 against Samuel Eto’o, Ronaldinho and the recently-signed Gerard Piqué to check whether they abided by the club’s strict rules on off the job behaviour life during the season. Although nothing was turned up by the private detectives in the case of ex-Man Utd centre half Piqué, the reports on the other two (and Brazilian midfielder Deco) were less complimentary, with evidence of a hectic social life and, it is alleged, late-night partying.

Joan Laporta,

T

he surveillance is believed to have played a part in the decision by Pep Guardiola, who took over as manager in the summer of 2008, not to keep Ronaldinho or Deco at the club. Etoo was initially on Guardiola’s clear-out list but was allowed to remain for a further year. According to Interviú, the round the clock surveillance was carried out at the specific request of then chairman Juan Laporta.

UD Las Palmas

Vitolo fiveweek layoff

Up and coming Las Palmas star Víctor Pérez (Vitolo) has seen his promising start to the season halted by injury.

T

he 20-year-old, who has been tipped for higher things due to his match-winning performances since he was promoted from the reserves, is out for five weeks after tearing a muscle in the game away to Valladolid. “I felt a twinge when I tried a shot on goal and it then got a lot worse. It is an awful thing to happen just as I was getting used to the step-up in level in the second division” said the disappointed winger, who featured in the starting line-up in all eight games before the injury. Vitolo’s dejection was compounded by the fact that it is the first serious lay-off he has suffered in his career.

First Division 01/11/2010

CD Tenerife

By Chris Todd

23/10/10 Cordoba 2:2 Tenerife Tenerife showed great determination in Andalucia to pick up a point after trailing 2-0 with twenty minutes remaining. Cordoba must have been kicking themselves though for not sealing the win as they dominated large parts of the match. Due to a slight injury, blanquiazul top scorer Nino had been ruled out before kick off and it showed the lack of depth in the squad as Iriome, a player usually stuck to the wings, was forced to play as a centre forward. The Icod de Los Vinos player fought valiantly and did as well as could be expected playing out of position. Both teams were scrapping for the ball during the first 45 minutes and as a spectacle the game left a lot to be desired. Tenerife did not mind in the slightest though and the half-time 0-0 scoreline was a positive start after so many away disasters. The second half certainly livened up producing four goals and plenty of action in the El Arcángel stadium in front of 8,000 supporters including 60 Tenerife fans. Now you may think that 60 fans is a paltry amount but when you consider that Tenerife have only won one away game out of their last 24 coupled with the obvious travel difficulties it is not a bad effort. Cordoba took the lead on 50 minutes when Luque converted a dubious penalty and soon after Charles put Cordoba 2-0 up with a superb overhead kick. Tenerife manager Mandía hastily made changes and the game swung the blanquiazules’ way, partly due to Cordoba relaxing, partly to good play by substitutes Natalio and Dani Kome. Mikel Alonso pulled a goal back on 70 minutes cleverly curving the ball around the outstretched Cordoba keeper and it was game on! Tenerife grew in confidence and were by now controlling proceedings spurred on by their noisy drum banging fans high in the stands. Natalio, something of a flop at the start of the season, has finally started to show some class and he scored the equal-

Second Division 01/11/2010 CLUB Natalio’s gesture says it all – a win at last

ising goal on 84 minutes. It had been a spirited fight back by the blanquiazules and they managed to hold on to secure a well earned point. Manager Mandía was pleased with the players’ never say die attitude. “It was a difficult game but if we had lost it would have been unfair. We needed to give everything until the end of the match and we got what we deserved”.

31/10/10 Tenerife 1:0 Elche At last Tenerife managed to seal their first victory of the season after a scrappy affair in the Heliodoro Stadium. Winning a match had become something of an obsession after a horrid run of nine matches had seen the blanquiazules draw just three and lie worryingly rooted to the bottom of the table. It would be great to report that the team are now back to their best but the truth is that they are still struggling to play the type of football that we have become accustomed to over the years. The ‘beautiful game’ though will have to be put on hold as obviously what CD Tenerife need now are points to get them out of the relegation nightmare. Elche came into the match on the back of a decent enough start to the campaign and a win would have taken them into the play-off positions. The surprising news at kick off was that local Tenerife youngster Joser Zambrano was to make

his first start for Tenerife. The diminutive Messi lookalike of Venezuelan parentage is without doubt the most exciting prospect to come out of the youth system in many years. The first half produced a distinct lack of chances for both sides and the only bright spark was the young Zambrano who buzzed around the ball like a bee. He became the target for some beefy challenges by the Elche defenders as they tried to keep up with his skill. Referee Daniel Ocón Arráiz became the focal point for the supporters’ rage as he appeared to give soft fouls in favour of the visitors whilst Zambrano was being kicked into the air without a foul being given. Nino tested Willy in the Elche goal just before half-time with a fierce shot from outside the box. The second half mirrored the first with both teams struggling to string three passes together. Tenerife’s main problem is that midfield playmaker Ricardo has been in poor form this season and annoyingly there is no-one else to fill that particular role. Also both centre halves are not the type of players to bring the ball out of defence and they quickly distribute the ball to the wings (in a way passing on the responsibility), from there the ball is launched upfield to the small strike force. The blanquiazul attackers regularly find themselves with their backs to the goal and are quickly closed down. Back to the game and Joser Zambrano was substituted early on in the half to generous applause from the 15,770 crowd. As the match contin-

ued Elche started to produce a few half chances and frustrations grew as it appeared that Tenerife would fail to win yet again. But there must be a football god after all as with ten minutes remaining Natalio, who had only been on the pitch for three minutes, struck the ball into the back of the net after a good determined run by Juanlu Hens. A wave of happiness and relief swept around the stadium. With all their faults it must be said that Tenerife stuck to their guns and kept plugging away. The last ten minutes were tense but at last the ball was being passed around like the good old days and Nino should have made it 2-0 as he volleyed over from close range. The final whistle sounded and the blanquiazules had won their first match! You could sense that a huge weight had been lifted from the players’ shoulders and the fans left the stadium as happy

as prunes in custard! It had been a long time coming but hopefully Tenerife can go on from this and beat Nastic de Tarragona this Sunday in the Heliodoro in a real six pointer relegation battle. The kick-off has been put back one hour to 6pm due to the all important Brazilian Grand Prix.
