Exodus

Four in ten in San Miguel are foreign

oreign residents now make up just under half of the population of San Miguel in south Tenerife. The figure was given recently by the town’s mayor at the launch of a programme of activities aimed at integrating non-locals and enhancing

cultural awareness. Mayor Victor Chinea revealed that around 3,000 of San Miguel’s 18,000 registered residents are British, no doubt attracted by the great weather and sporting facilities, with a further 500 from Italy. Other significant population groups are Venezuelans and Cubans, according to

The British Consul will also be hosting an information stand, under the banner ‘Vivir en España, Living San Miguel’ with staff on hand to give out leaflets and information to interested parties. The event is a welcome move by the San Miguel council and a positive reflection of the moves in the Islands to encourage and assist integration in the many boroughs with high non-Spanish populations. On average 15 per cent of the population of Tenerife is foreign.

Operation Zumo

Joint op drugs bust I

n another successful joint operation, the Guardia Civil (the Spanish Civil Guard) have dismantled a British organisation involved in drug trafficking in leisure centres in Levante and the Baleares. During Operation ZUMO, a joint operation between the Guardia Civil and SOCA (UK Serious and Organised Crime Agency), 12 British nationals were arrested, five vehicles, one boat, precision scales, and 53,000 designer drug pills were seized, and a cannabis planta-

tion dismantled in Crevillente (Alicante). According to police sources, the members of the group travelled regularly to the United Kingdom in order to smuggle the drugs hidden in double-bottom suitcases and vehicles from there. Some of those arrested are believed to have also had contact with a smuggling group dismantled by the Guardia Civil last August during the course of Operation Flecha. From the start of this operation the investigators were in contact with SOCA who sent a number of officers to assist

As readers may know the case of Stepy has been making headlines, not so much for the crime he is accused of but for the amount of time he has now been on bail, nearly three years, and confined to Tenerife. Stepy’s business and health have suffered, though the courts have allowed him to return to the UK on one or two occasions to deal with urgent family matters and visit his doctor. The team from ITV were

During their time they visited the offices of the IC Media group and spoke to the Island Connections editor about the case. Stepy still has no court date, but is in much better form and seems upbeat about his prospects when the case finally does come to court. We will keep you updated as the case progresses.

Canarian president Paulino Rivero has described the new health centre in Playa Blanca (Lanzarote) as “world class”. Rivero and regional health minister Mercedes Roldós travelled to the island recently for the formal inauguration of the facility, which has already been operating at full capacity for some time. The health centre, which is open 24 hours a day, serves a resident population of just under 11,000 and an estimated 15,000 holidaymakers in Playa Blanca. It replaces the previous centre, which was partly demolished to make way for the new building.

Canarian economy

Rating agency blow

The Canarian economy has been dealt a major blow with the decision of prestigious rating agency Standard and Poors to downgrade the region’s creditworthiness. S&P announced on October 4th that it had cut the Canaries’ credit rating to AA- due to the less than positive economic prospects, particularly the likelihood of a further rise in unemployment. S&P also alerted to the dangers posed by the high level of government debt here, which could jeopardise the region’s finances for years to come.

As has become customary, Cunard’s latest transatlantic cruise ship will be visiting the Canaries during her maiden voyage. The 14 day trip calling in at Spain, Portugal and Madeira as well as three Canarian ports was the fastest selling trip in the company’s 170 year history, it sold out in just 29 minutes.

Princess of asturias Miss Tenerife 2010 Judith Estela Guerra

Royal visit

Tenerife 2010

Miss and Mister Tenerife elected F T ollowing a special dinner and pre-gala parade of the candidates for these two titles at the official venue, Hotel Jardín Tropical in Costa Adeje on September 30th, the winners were chosen in the Plaza del Cristo, La Laguna during the following weekend.

There were 28 contestants from all parts of the province for each of the two titles. Judith Estela Guerra, representing the discotheque Big Ben, was chosen as the most beautiful woman in the province and was crowned Miss Tenerife by Amanda Perdomo, her predecessor. 21 year-old Judith, 1.75 metres tall, is currently studying her second course of a superior cycle of physical sports activities. The title of Mister Tenerife was won by Alberto José Pérez Lorenzo, representing La Palma. He takes over the title from Roberto Baez. The new Miss and Mister Tenerife will now go on to represent the province of Tenerife in the contests for the titles of Miss and Mister Spain.

he Princess of Asturias, Doña Letizia, wife of the heir to the Spanish throne, Principe Felipe, arrived in the Canaries recently for her first solo visit to the Islands. Her first call was to Gran Canaria to the El Pino hospital centre then on to a busy afternoon in Tenerife where she visited the TEA arts and study centre and the Auditorio de Tenerife. At TEA the princess met a group of local preschoolers (comforting a small Asian boy who was overwhelmed by the fuss), unveiled a plaque to

honour her visit and saw one of the exhibitions. In scenes which sometimes were more reminiscent of the Keystone Cops than a press call, photographers and journalists scurried about in the entrails of the TEA building, popping up providentially just minutes before the Princess and her entourage entered the next staged setting for her visit. General comments were that if she always moved

about so much, it was no wonder she is so slim. In the evening the Princess presided over the V for Vida (life) awards and the handing over of the latest investigation grants from the AECC (Spanish national charity fighting cancer) in the capital’s auditorium. She has accepted the nomination of the charity to be their honorary President and

made a brief, succinct address underlining the importance of a healthy lifestyle to reduce the incidence of cancer and the importance of investigation in the fight against this disease, “to win in the long term, and reduce the incidence of cancer in our society”.

Merlin Retirement Resort

A safe and secure retirement

The newly established Merlin Retirement Resort is holding open days on Saturday October 9th and Sunday October 10th, from 12 noon, on site in the resort (entrance opp. Tropical Park hotel). The new retirement centre promises to offer 24 hour on site security, help and support. Apartments (studios or one bed) are comfortably furnished, and are for rent, not sale. They will be available from the beginning of November. The weekly fee includes all meals. More information by calling Chris or Lynn, (0034 634 150 514).

Under the influence

Mayor apologises

The mayor of Buenavista del Norte in Tenerife made a public apology to the town for setting a bad example by driving under the influence of drink.

Victor Lorenzo was involved in a collision with a bus late on Friday October 1st and faces prosecution after traffic branch officers found him to be well over the limit when he was breathalysed at the scene. “I admit I did something I should not have done by driving the council’s jeep to a private lunch at which I took a couple of glasses of wine and a liqueur” said a repentant Lorenzo, who denied the drink had anything to do with the accident, in which one woman passenger suffered minor whiplash.

Paper slammed

General strike call

Tenerife daily El Día is under fire for calling for another general strike, this time to press the independence claims of the Canary Islands.

The paper’s editorial on October 5th makes the case for a repeat here of the recent nationwide day of action, but as a means of pressuring the rest of Spain to take seriously the region’s desire (according to El Día) to split from the rest of the country. “There is no reason why, six centuries after we were colonised by force, we should continue to be Spanish” argues the editorial. The strike call was been ridiculed in other sectors of the media within hours of the paper appearing on the newsstands.

Tourism recovery

he tiny hamlet of Aceviños boasts a population of just seventy-three souls. They are the remnants of the once flourishing community that farmed and lived in the beautiful surroundings of the national park forest. Most of the seventy-three are elderly. Their children and grandchildren live elsewhere. Some stayed on the island, but the majority left long ago for Tenerife or other destinations far less beautiful than Aceviños, but less isolated. The few younger people living there are foreigners, with at least one English couple among them. Whilst the abandoned villages of La Gomera slowly crumbled in the second half of the twentieth century, untended, if not forgotten, by their distant owners, the island’s growing popularity as an independent tourism destination provided new potential populations: younger, northern Europeans. Aceviños has started, very slowly, to grow again in terms of inhabitants, but the new community bears little resemblance to the old. Although cordial relations between foreigners and locals are enjoyed, life is very different there now. The foreigners are generally well-heeled, in as much as they arrive with funds to buy and renovate the houses they live in, they have cars and tend not to have to work the land they bought from dawn to dusk to make a living. They generally keep themselves to themselves. The problem posed by this form of, admittedly very gradual, rural repopulation, is that basic services take a long time to catch up as the new population is often foreign, with poor language skills, little experience of rural, community life and, ver y impor tantly, has ver y little inclination to change the isolated rural idyll. Enjoying the Good Life somewhere like

They shall go by taxi By Barbara Belt Aceviños is charming when you can hole up at your leisure, do a bit of gardening, commune with nature and then escape in your four-wheel drive down to Valle Gran Rey when it all gets a bit much, or pop over to the capital to shop whenever you need anything. Life there without transport has never been easy and is especially dif ficult for the present, local population because of old age, infirmity, a lack of family and community support and a marked lack of interest in changing the status quo. Living the end of your life cast as a quaint, ageing local character for the newcomers is of limited appeal. How much nicer to be independent, to be able to go and come as the fancy takes you. Until now, this has been impossible, but there is hope on the horizon in the form of Solveida Clemente, Hermigua council leader and the island’s only mayoress. Solveida Clemente helped the villagers of Aceviños to put in an official request for public transport in February

this year. It went to the Cabildo and chief Casimiro Curbelo assured press then that, “...we will have contracts drawn up between the town council and local taxi drivers to provide this service immediately”. However “six months and many requests later, the promised Cabildo help has still not materialised,” says Clemente. “So we’ll do it ourselves. We’ve told the villagers to meet and give us the timetable they’d like. Then we’ll put on a regular taxi service from the village to the centre of Hermigua. From there, they can hook up with the island’s bus service. We can’t leave them all stuck up there like that. It’s shameful”. The new taxi ser vice will also pick up passengers in the neighbouring village of El Cedro. There is, of course, a political element to this tale. Our PSOE majority Cabildo always experiences unfortunate and mysterious delays when required to deal with councils of a different political party and nationalist CCN party won the last local elections in Hermigua.

The better than expected August figures for the holiday sector in Gran Canaria have revealed that tourists from other parts of Spain have overtaken the traditional mainstays of the island’s industry for the first time. Statistics compiled by the Gran Canaria Cabildo show that the number of Spaniards who holidayed on the island in August topped the 55,000 mark, 6,000 more than UK holidaymakers and nearly 10,000 more than the number of Germans. “The figures vindicate the major efforts undertaken of late to attract more Spanish visitors through a series of marketing campaigns on the mainland” explained the Cabildo’s tourism councillor Robert Moreno.

Tax

‘Undeclared’ rentals

Spanish tax officials calculate that up to 65 per cent of property rentals in the Canaries are done ‘under the table’, with no earnings details supplied by owners to Hacienda. The claim is made by members of the Gestha association of tax employees in its latest annual study of what it has dubbed the ‘Black Rental Economy’. The figure for the Canaries is almost ten points higher than the average for the rest of the country, a situation officials attribute to the high number of rentals negotiated informally in tourist areas. A concerted effect to uncover the undeclared earnings from rentals in 2007 helped bring 90,000 cases to light but Hacienda reckons three billion euros are still unaccounted for, 179 million in the Canaries alone.

Intercontinental art

The first Tricontinental Art Fair, organised by the Tenerife Cabildo, with Casa Africa, takes place from October 27th to November 1st. Works will be exhibited in the Puerto de la Cruz port, and according to Efraín Medina, island councillor for economic development, commerce and employment, the Fair hopes to “promote the works of art from all sides of the Atlantic, converting Tenerife into a true tricontinental platform and a cultural bridge between the peoples of Latin-America, Africa and Southern Europe.” Up to 200 artists will show their works during the fair, 80 from Latin-America, Portugal and the Spanish peninsula, 80 from Tenerife, 30 from Senegal and 30 from the rest of the Canary Islands.

A whale of a time Turismo de Tenerife will install a number of information panels in the island’s tourist zones on sightings of the cetaceans who inhabit our waters (or do we visit theirs?). The panels will be placed in the main marinas from where the whale and dolphin excursions set off, and the aim of the panels is to highlight the importance of this kind of tourist activity as well as the need for respect for the marine environment. According to tourism councillor José Manuel Bermúdez, given the year-round presence of these creatures in Tenerife’s waters, the island has become the second most visited resort world-wide for people in search of this kind of holiday activity. The panels will be located in the ports of Puerto Colón, Los Cristianos, Los Gigantes, and along the maritime pathways of Adeje, Arona, and Santiago del Teide.

Rural awakenings The Tenerife Cabildo, through the auspices of the Fundación Tenerife Rural, has organised a new education programme which hopes to teach the island’s school children about the more rural side of life. Activities take place in a variety of locations, the El Helecho farm in Arico, the Casa de la Miel (honey), the Casa Museo de la vid (vine), the Tenerife Museum of Biodiversity, La Baranda in El Sauzal, the Boquín farm in Icod de los Vinos and the Casa del Ganadero (rancher) in the Camino de San Diego, La Laguna. The island’s agricultural councillor, José Joaquín Bethencourt, said “this activity is designed to improve the student’s knowledge of rural life on our Islands, and raise conservation awareness at the same time”. Last year 4, 013 took part in the visits.

AFIS U-turn on the cards

El Hierro looks to have won its battle to restore traffic controllers to its small airport.

J

ust weeks after the Spanish Airports Authority introduced the much cheaper AFIS (Aerodrome Flight Information System) system in the island’s airport, it has emerged that the government is considering reverting to the full controller system due to the unprecedented pressure received from all political parties in the Canaries.

E

l Hierro’s situation has even been raised in the Spanish Parliament, with Tenerife senator Antonio Alarcó challenging the country’s prime minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to order AFIS to be used for his home-town airport of León, which has far fewer flights than El Hierro. Sources in Madrid say that the controversial decision could be reversed in the near future “depending on the outcome of technical reports”. However, the island’s Cabildo says there is no need for any reports to be produced because the conditions at the airport are exactly the same as they were before AFIS was introduced in August.

Prostitution

Bin there…

Recycling ‘deception’ claims denied

Employees of the refuse collection company which was replaced recently by Las Palmas council have accused the corporation of deceiving the public into believing that household waste is recycled.

Brito believes

Free books rethink call

Ca n a r i a n e d u c at i o n minister Milagros Brito believes it is not fair that better-off families should receive free school books for their children.

A

lthough backed by photographic evidence and testimony from several opposition members, the claims have been flatly denied by refuse services councillor Inmaculada Medina, who accused the binmen of “stooping to any depths“ to discredit the new firm. “The image of the city has improved beyond recognition in terms of bin collections. It would not be in the new firm’s interests to mix the waste because they receive payment for every kilo of separated rubbish recycled” insisted Medina.

A

round 2,500 women earn their living from prostitution in the Canaries, according to the first ever report on the activity drawn up specifically in the region.

The figure was given at a conference organised recently by the Gran Canaria Cabildo to examine the extent of the phenomenon on the island

and the Canaries in general. Corporation official Isabel Guerra says that conservative estimates put the revenue generated by prostitution at approximately €20 million, making it a substantial black economy activity. The conference discussed the profile not just of prostitutes (who tend to be foreign women as opposed to locals)

but also that of their habitual clients, who -the report says“are not men living on the margins of society but respectable persons, in half of all cases middle-class or above, married and with children”. However, Enrique Hernández, a senior psychiatrist at the University Hospital, added that “85 per cent of men who pay for sex match the profile associated

with abusers of women”. Conference delegates said they were opposed to abolition of the world’s oldest trade although they urged the authorities to stamp out the human trafficking mafias which snare young women from Africa, Eastern Europe and South America and force them to sell their bodies for sex.

Cueva de Los Verdes

S

everal employees who lost their jobs when their firm Clusa saw its contract terminated took the media and members of the opposition to the city’s main landfill to show them how supposedly sorted plastics and paper ends up in the same dump as other rubbish. “The new firm cannot cope and is cutting corners by sending recycling lorries to the general dump. The council knows this and is turning a blind eye” said the former binmen.

A €20 million business

C

ommenting on the growing success of the initiative adopted back in 2005 and which now benefits 170,000 schoolchildren from early primary school to final year of compulsory education, Brito said the free books were really only required “by those who cannot afford them”. She explained, “you can’t treat everyone the same way if they are faced with totally different circumstances. The child of an MP is not in the same position as that of a single mother, but the measure was introduced by Parliament before I became minister so I can do little about”. Education officials say the free books scheme benefits around half of the school population and is not taken up more widely “because many private and grant-maintained schools in the Canaries prefer not to be part of it”.

Cave row escalates T

he row over one of Lanzarote’s most popular tourist attractions has escalated further after the mayor of Haria vowed to evict the island’s Cabildo from the Cueva de Los Verdes (Green Cave). Famous for its optical illusion, the cave, which is one of the

longest volcanic tunnels in the world and part of a six km lava tube formed about 3,000 years ago when the La Corona volcano erupted, has been at the centre of a patch war between the two corporations since the Cabildo began to default on its annual payments to Haría for the right to manage

the underground attraction, which is visited by thousands of tourists every week. Haría mayor José Torres is adamant that unless the debt, believed to be several million euros, is paid soon, he will order the Cabildo to hand back the cave and will manage it directly from the town. However, support from

other towns on Lanzarote with Cabildo-run tourist attractions appears to have dwindled after an initial expression of solidarity with Haría. For its part, the Cabildo insists it “does not dispute the ownership of the Green Cave but will fight to retain its right to run the facility”.

Smoke alarm

Cigarette smugglers A

recent flight from Gran Canaria to Seville turned out to be a customs and excise treasure trove when a dozen passengers were caught smuggling cigarettes bought here.

Officials carrying out random checks at Seville Airport

discovered hundreds of 20packs of cigarettes in the hand luggage and checked bags of a man who was part of a large group travelling on the plane. Further checks led customs to more than 20,000 packs of cigarettes, which were confiscated in the arrivals hall. A

spokesman said the suitcases and bags of twelve passengers were full of cigarettes, the origins of which are being investigated to see if they belong to a bigger shipment of counterfeit tobacco products smuggled into the Canaries for onward distribution. The authorities

calculate the cigarettes would have fetched €45,000 on the market in Spain. The European commission estimates that around €10 billion are lost to national and EU budgets each year due to the smuggling of both genuine and counterfeit cigarettes.

The American ambassador to Spain has vowed to do all he can to help Tenerife become a hi-tech platform for international firms wanting to do business with Africa. Ambassador Alain Solomont paid a fleeting visit to the island, accompanied by senior officials from the US Chamber of Commerce in Spain, to see for himself its potential as a transport and telecommunications hub. With security uppermost in mind he visited the port of Santa Cruz to

Free Hug initiative falls flat

A bid by a group of people to turn Santa Cruz into the ‘hug capital’ of the Canaries for a day failed to attract much interest but the organisers still say it was a great success. Around 400 people had indicated on a special Facebook site that they would turn up to dish out free hugs to all and sundry on 24 September but in the end just 15 put in an appearance in the city centre.

Organiser Carlos Díaz, a local psychologist, said that the hugs and embraces received a mixed reaction from bemused members of the public but several acknowledged afterwards that the effect on them had been positive. The Free Hugs movement, now an international phenomenon, was started by Juan Mann on June 30 2004, when he began giving out hugs in the Pitt St Mall in Sydney

(Australia). In the months prior to this, Mann had been feeling depressed and lonely as a result of numerous personal difficulties. However, a random hug from a stranger made an enormous difference, with Mann stating that “...I went out to a party one night and a completely random person came up to me and gave me a hug. I felt like a king! It was the greatest thing that ever happened’.

Solomont said he was “highly impressed” by what he had seen and, in particular, by the Cabildo’s vision of the island’s economic future. Quoting Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, he predicted that his visit “could be the start of a beautiful relationship” with Tenerife. The movement was started by Juan Mann

Santa Cruz conversion

City beach idea rejected

A proposal to convert part of the port of Santa Cruz into a city beach has been rejected by a wide range of stakeholders, from the Port Authority to shipping agents.

T

he debate was triggered by Ignacio González, of the CCN party in the Tenerife capital, who called for serious consideration to be given to the idea to replicate the Las Canteras Beach in Las Palmas. The CCN believes a beach, stretching between the Auditorium and the Cabildo, would be a massive draw for residents and visitors and would inject new life into the seafront area of the capital.

H

owever, opponents say the proposal is unworkable and accuse González of trying to drum up support for his party. Pedro Anatael, a former head of the Port Authority, ridiculed the idea and said he “was not surprised that bizarre proposals

are put on the table as local elections draw near”. One of Santa Cruz’s biggest shipping agents, Hamilton, called the idea ludicrous and called for a yachting marina to be given priority. Others have pointed out that a beach would be incompatible with cruise liners, which would not be able to call into Santa Cruz.

Las Teresitas

Beach demolition ‘requires licence’

An association set up to protect Las Teresitas Beach in Santa Cruz from development says it is flabbergasted to learn that the shell structure of a shopping centre and car park still cannot be demolished despite being ruled illegal.

C

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 627 :: 08/10/2010 - 22/10/2010 Miguel Zerolo subsequently challenged the decision in court. According to the Friends of Las Teresitas association, the council now says it cannot demolish the shell without a demolition permit. “This is the height of absurdity. The council is ordered to pull it down because it is illegal and will not do so without a demolition permit, which only it can issue” said a spokeswoman.

Tenerife expansion

Three more Lidl shops

German supermarket chain Lidl have just confirmed the opening of three more stores in Tenerife, bringing to 15 the number of outlets in the Canary Islands.

A

ccording to a spokesperson the openings are part of the company’s ongoing plan to establish, in the medium to long term, a Lidl outlet in all of the major towns in the islands. Lidl Los Realejos will open on November 4th and will be located in the Corona del Polígono Industríal la Gañania, creating 30+ new jobs. The Tacoronte shop should

open its doors to the public on November 18th (25 new jobs) and the new Lidl in Santa Cruz, in Añaza, opens on November 29th and will offer employment to over 30 persons. All the shops also offer client parking.

M

aking the announcement the company added that “at all times Lidl has given priority to employing Canarian residents and works in conjunction with local councils and employment programmes and the INEM (the Canarian employment service)”:

Arona

Rubbish problem

T h e Fr i e n d s o f Lo s Cristianos Association has publicly criticised Arona town council for failing to find a solution to the age-old problem of rubbish collection in the resort.

I

n a strongly worded statement the association says mayor José Alberto González Reverón and his colleagues have taken cowardly and stop-gap measures to resolve the conflicts at the refuse collection firm, rather than a permanent solution. Around 300

refuse collectors and road sweepers began a second strike in less than a month during the last weekend in September and although they have now agreed to go back to work, the massive mounds of rubbish on the streets was taking some time to clear because they have adopted a ‘go slow’ approach and are refusing to do overtime.

La Orotava

Jewellery raid

Burglars who broke into a La Orotava jewellers in the early hours of September 28th snatched an estimated €40,000 worth of items, say local police.

T

he break-in at the shop in the residential El Mayorazgo area was highlyplanned and well-executed, according to detectives. The burglars covered security cameras with masking tape and then used a chain to hook the security shutters to their vehicle. The shutters were ripped off, allowing the four thieves to smash the plate glass window and enter the premises.

Reckless escapade?

Sand incident triggers bill Calls for reckless holidaymakers to foot the bill for selfinflicted problems have been rekindled by a near-repeat in Tenerife of the recent beach tragedy in Fuerteventura which left a young Italian boy dead. In the latest incident, a 23year-old German had to be rescued by the emergency services in Bajamar after a sand tunnel he had dug for hours

collapsed with him inside. Other beach users joined his girlfriend in digging frantically with their hands to extract the man while help arrived. The rescue operation, which is said to have cost around €20,000 in labour (fire brigade, police, ambulance crew) and the dispatching of a helicopter to airlift the holidaymaker to hospital if required, triggered angry reaction in the local

media, with calls for the man to be held personally liable for the expenses. One reader posted a comment stressing that “it was not an accident: anyone who tries to carve himself a little cave under the sand is asking for trouble. He should pay back every penny”. Other examples used in the media to underline tourist negligence were illequipped walkers in the hills in Anaga and Masca and the growing number of youths who suffer serious injuries when climbing between balconies of their hotel or apartment in drunken pranks.

Water water everywhere….

Turn off that tap Arona has just introduced a new awareness programme into schools in the borough hoping to make children more aware of the need to save water.

In parallel in 12 local infant and primary public schools a company specialising in water saving systems has installed a number of new pieces of

equipment which, for instance, will regulate the water flow from taps and in cisterns, and regulate the pressure leading to an overall saving of up to 50 per cent in water consumption. The cost of the installation €34,000 – should be offset in the first year, with the schools’ authorities reckoning on a first year saving in their water bills

of up to €37,800. According to technology councillor for the area, Antonio Miguel García Marichal, the idea is now to extend the installation of the devices to “municipal sporting complexes and other public buildings”, adding that the council are also considering investing money in the installation of renewable energy technology for water heaters.

Children and the sea

A group of children connected to Spain’s Once charity for the disabled recently took part in a day on the ocean waves organised by Arona’s environmental office, with whales and dolphins as the ‘invited guests’. The primary aim of the activity, according to Arona environmental councillor Antonio Sosa, was to introduce the children “to our marine eco-system and the manner of conserving it, use these sea creatures as a means to get to know the sea life nearest to us”. During the day the 15 girls and boys were able to take part in a variety of activities, such as ‘biologist for a day’, where they were allowed use the tools and technology normally available to marine biologists in the study of cetaceans. Once on dry land, the children were taken to Playa de Las Vistas for a swim in the company of specially trained life guards.

The issue of longevity

Will your finances last a lifetime? By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

W

hile longer lives are good news for most people they are creating a major headache for European governments. People living longer require more health and social care as well as pension payments over a longer period of time. All this has to be paid for and as governments juggle finances to reduce their budget deficits, they are also looking at pension reforms and other ways to boost finance for state pensions and welfare costs. This could potentially include further tax rises to cover the cost of increased longevity. Life expectancy will gradually increase as medical science advances further and the costs will increase exponentially. Pensions will have to be paid out for a much longer period of time. In the UK, when the current pension age was set in the 1940s, people were only expected to live on average around seven

years into retirement. Today they can expect to live 20 or 30 years as retirees. Governments realise they have to act now, which means longer working lives and possibly higher taxes to help provide the finances. The UK, France, Spain, Cyprus, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Greece and the Netherlands have all announced increases or are reviewing both public and state pension ages with the view to raising them. On a personal level, you need to ensure that your wealth will last at least as long as you do and that you have enough spending power to enjoy a comfortable retirement all the way through. Ideally, you should not have to worry about whether you will have enough money to live on in your senior years or a back up sum for emergencies such as health care. Many retirees move their investments into more ‘safe’ assets, such as a bank deposit account. But with the prospect of 30 years to fund this is unlikely to be the right thing to do. Instead of keeping most of your money in a bank account, which can offer low interest rates and no capital growth, you should consider a strategic

investment policy designed for capital growth over the longer term and regular income if required. Your wealth needs to keep pace with inflation in order to protect your spending power and financial security through retirement. For example, if your personal rate of inflation runs at four to five per cent

Ideally, you should not have to worry about whether you will have enough money to live on in your senior years it can reduce your wealth by around 37 per cent over a ten year period alone. Even a low rate will have an adverse effect over time. Annual inflation of just two per cent would reduce the spending power of €200,000 to €109,100 after 30 years – that’s almost half its value wiped out.

If governments continue on a course of increasing taxation to help decrease their deficits and fund longevity, your portfolio also needs to include legitimate tax mitigation structures designed to help you pay the least amount of tax possible in Spain. You can often combine your tax and investment plan-

ning in one exercise, allowing you to tackle the twin threats of tax and inflation and gain peace of mind about your financial security through retirement. An experienced wealth and tax management firm like Blevins Franks will advise you on the available opportunities and suggest recommendations

based on your specific circumstances, aims and objectives.

Social security

Foreign workers The number of nonSpanish contributors to the Social Security system decreased in August after six consecutive months of increases. There were 22,222 less people paying into the system in August, a reduction of 1.17 per cent over July and leaving a total number of 1,877,935 foreign residents in Spain who are registered as working. The re-

ductions were across the board from self employed and employed to home helps and farm hands and sailors. Of those who continue to be registered in August, 670,267 are from the EU, 217,690 Moroccan, 175,463 Ecuadorians, 118,200 Columbians and 81,794 Chinese. Bolivia with 81,161 workers, Peru with 72,927, Argentina with 48,531, the Dominican Republic with

34,209, the Ukraine with 33,676 and Brazil with 26,263 registered workers make up the other major groups. Of the EU block of workers, the countries most represented are Rumania, Italy and Portugal with 280,233, 66,588 and 54,864 registered workers respectively. British and German social security workers were registered at 50, 873 and 41,790.

Monthly bills

Electricity increases The price of TUR, the electric last resource tariff, which is applicable to those consumers with a supply of less than 10kw will increase from October 1 by 4.8 per cent. The average increase to home owners will be approximately €1.7 a month. Those homes which are signed on to the Bono Social plan will not have the new rates applied. Increased costs in producing the energy have been blamed due to higher fuel costs and higher demand due to harder winters.

The tariffs applied by the companies which are supposed to cover the costs of using the network etc. are to be frozen according to the Government’s proposals to the National Energy Commission. Homes with a supply of less than 3kw, pensioners on minimum income, large families (two parents and three children or one parent and two children) and those families where everybody is unemployed may be entitled to sign up for the Bono Social system to reduce and/or freeze costs.

La Palma cruises

A day in port Visitors from cruise ships in Santa Cruz de La Palma have a new tool to make sure that they enjoy to the full their day in port. A special brochure has been prepared and circulated to the many shops and services in the island’s capital for distribution among the visitors. The brochure shows the various options for cultural visits, shopping and leisure

that the tourists can find and information for the businesses to let them know the specific characteristics of the average cruise tourist such as their advantages as potential clients given their high level of spending power, the compacted time frame they have to operate in and the need for visits to be made quickly to make the most of their time.

Statistics

Tourist spending The results of the August tourist questionnaire by Egatur show an increase by 6.2 per cent in the spending pattern of foreign tourists. Egatur statistics are compiled by the tourist studies institute of the Ministry of Tourism and their figures reveal spending by visitors across Spain to have risen to €6.8 million and show a continuance of the trend

of increases over last year’s figures for the fourth month running. In the first eight months of the year, tourists left over €33,906 in Spain, 1.9 per cent more than 2009. The average spending per person in August increased by 2.2 per cent to €975 and the daily spending reached €98, an increase of 8.1 per cent. By nationality, the British spending increased by 2.3 per cent, the

Nordics by 12.3 per cent, the Italians 2.3 per cent and the French 5.5 per cent whilst the Germans spent one per cent less. The Balearics remained the region which received the most money from foreign tourists with €1.774 million, an increase of 5.3 per cent. The Canaries and Valencia were the regions which benefited from the highest increases registering improvements of 10.8 per cent and 14.5 per cent respectively. Interestingly, the number of clients choosing a package tour decreased by 2.1 per cent and those making up their own holiday choices, mainly via Internet, increased by 9.9 per cent.

Hotel renovation programme

The regional government has finalised the details of its ambitious renovation programme to increase the standard of hotel and apartment accommodation by facilitating refurbishment of older premises.

S

pokesman Martín Marrero says a considerable amount of the red tape to have older buildings declared obsolete, a prerequisite for complete refurbishment, has been removed and the formal declaration will be particularly swift in the case of premises which will be upgraded to four stars (hotels) or three keys (apartments). The new programme also makes it easier for owners of unregistered rural tourism accommodation in La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera to legalise their premises if they can show they have been used for tourism continuously for the last five years.

I

n many ways Breege O’Donoghue, director and Human Resources manager for Primark, is a reflection of what can make Ireland and things Irish successful. She is quite obviously dedicated to her job, to the products she represents, to the company and the company ethos, while retaining a charm and ease of manner that perhaps belies her commitment to the job at hand. Breege was in Gran Canaria recently to launch Primark’s first store in the Canary Islands, with more in the pipeline. Watching her in action before the speeches was a lesson in human resource management; she knew the names of very many of those on the new shop floor, was, of course, dressed in Primark fashion, just as much at ease with the young team getting the shelves ready as with the directors, local press and Gran Canarian mayor Jerónimo Saavedra, who seemed absolutely delighted to be there, happy with more job creation for the city, and talking jokingly of an Irish coup d’etat in the city. Many people may not be aware that Primark was and still is the international branch of the Irish shop Penneys (the name changed when they decided to branch out overseas to avoid any legal problems with another international company), with head office and all major decision-making still taking place above the shop in Mary Street, in Dublin. Breege has been with the company since 1979, and as she says, “that’s key for us, business is run from Ireland, decisions are made in Ireland”. But what makes a small company into the huge European success it is today, employing more than 32,000 people in over 205 shops in Spain, Ireland, England, Portugal, Germany, Holland and Belgium? Rather than close doors during the last two

Doing things the local way By Clio O’’Flynn

recession led years, Primark has continued to expand and successfully. So what’s the company secret? Breege says, “well I think we do well in good times and in bad. It’s really about price and quality, it’s really about value for money. We are a volume business, a simple business, we have good technology, good back up , we have our excellent staff, 32,000 of them, with longevity, longevity with the suppliers, and it’s those things working together that mean we can supply value for money, and that’s why we believe that the customer does come back again and again.” Keeping the price low is of course a key element – and Primark work hard to achieve that, using their own and freelance designers, working directly with producers, keeping profit margins low and, as said, with high volume turnover this still

means the company is making money. They also maintain a high level of product rotation, so there’s something new for their (mostly young, under 35) customer base on a weekly basis. And there’s more, and specifically when it comes to locating abroad. “We want to do business the local way, we want to bring the DNA of Penneys in Ireland to an international clientele, but its always about doing business the local way. For example we have two excellent Spanish nationals living in Dublin and they’ve come over, they’ve relocated and they’re the ones who inform us regarding the product for Iberia (so there is cross product integration). We are in the process of recruiting similar German product controllers to come and live in Ireland for Northern Europe. “We also have a very short chain of command and I think that’s good for communication, decisions are made not by com-

mittee, decisions are made by individuals, we make bad ones, we make good ones, but we encourage people to make decisions at the lowest level. “You get out of it what you put into it” and this despite the fact that what was once a small company is now owned by Associated British Foods (ABF) and run by the Westons. Breege says that despite the appearance of being a giant corporation, the ethos of belonging to a family run company remains. “From the Westons we get a lot of freedom, they support us on issues that really matter. They have great respect for the Irish and the Irish tradition in business” And that is? “I think it’s about hard work, I think it’s about detailing as well as the big picture. Retailing is detailing... in our business there are no such words as ‘I can’t do’, instead the emphasis is on ‘how can I get it done’. We are a close team, led by a

15

fantastic chief executive, Paul Merchant, who is a great communicator, has a great sense of product - the best people in the best seats”. The company’s expansion was, for many years, limited to the UK, but when they did decide to look for new markets, Spain was the first choice, and quite obviously, given the store locations, not with the smaller ex-pat market in mind. “There are a lot of similarities between Spain and Ireland - education, family, a good sense of humour…we did our market research but even then were particularly surprised …we expected to do reasonably well, but it has outshone our expectations. “We love the Spanish…for example in our international buyers’ office we have Spanish classes three times a week, and it’s not so much that people need to know the language for their work, it’s for the camaraderie, that understanding of the culture, because there are also a lot of differences between Spain and Ireland. And we want to do things the local way. I myself have been learning Spanish for about eight years since we knew we were coming here. That is important to us.” And indeed Breege’s inauguration speech was delivered in well-penned and delivered Spanish, much to the appreciation of the local staff and invited guests. They also donated a cheque for €10,000 to local charity La Asociación APAELP, further underwriting their desire to integrate into the local community. When are we likely to see more Primark stores in the islands? There is one in the offing, and the islands as a whole are being considered, but as Breege says, “we’re going to look and see. Four years ago we started in Spain, and we now have 18 stores, it’s really important that we have the right people in place, we’re not in any rush, and we want to do it well. And it’s about learning as we go.”

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

COACHING CORNER

Rituals are the Foundation of Success!

What can I do to help with my varicose veins? Sincerely, Judy

Dr. Loehr, one of the leading authorities on spor ts per formance once stated that, “top performers have lives full of rituals on and off the court. Less accomplished athletes don’t have these rituals.”

Dear Judy, Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins near the sur face of the skin. They are most common in the legs and ankles and caused by weakened valves and veins in your legs. Our legs are equipped with one-way valves to keep blood flowing from your legs up toward your heart. If the valves get messed up, blood collects in your legs and pressure builds up. The veins become weak, large, and twisted. Home treatment may be all you need to ease your symptoms and keep the varicose veins from getting worse. You can: - Apply a cold compress/ gel that you can keep in the refrigerator which will help to alleviate the pain and diminish the swelling. - Regularly elevate your legs which helps keep the blood from pooling in your lower legs and improves blood flow to the rest of your body. - Avoid long periods of standing or sitting. - Exercise and control your weight. I bet you Tina Turner doesn’t have them because she has toned-up veins that push the blood effectively. Walking, bicycling, and swimming are recommended for varicose veins. Ask your doctor for a specific exercise plan as some exercises might worsen your current situation. - We a r c o m p r e s s i o n stockings - not fun but in some scenarios unavoidable. These suggestions can relieve your symptoms, slow the progression of varicose veins, and prevent complications such as sores or bleeding. They are especially important if you have a family histor y of varicose veins. These measures may help you avoid surgery or other medical treatment for your varicose veins. Your GP may also tell you to take a nonsteroidal

anti-inflammatory drug (for example, ibuprofen) and some other drugs available to boost circulation and improve vessel tone. Make sure you discuss with him/her an encompassing game plan that includes aerobic exercise, some callisthenics, weight management, posture issues and perhaps some medication. Best wishes.

Dear Dr. De La Flor, I’ve been taking condroitin for a couple of years but they don’t seem to work. Sincerely, Joe

Dear Joe, I’ll be brief and straight to the point on this one, even though I have several relatives and numerous close friends that are pharmacists and it might put me in an awkward position. The latest research published by the reputable BMJ (British Medical Journal) bluntly states that “popular arthritis supplements don’t work”. The study suggests that the most popular supplements used to treat joint pain are useless. Researchers analysed the results of 10 past trials in 4,000 patients who took glucosamine, chondroitin or a placebo to treat arthritis in their hips or knees. They found neither supplement, taken either separately or

together, did any better than a placebo. Chronic ar thritis in the hip or knee can be treated with dr ugs that reduce inflammation, but those can cause serious stomach and heart side effects if they are used long term. In the BMJ analysis, the researchers didn’t find any proof glucosamine or chondroitin were dangerous either. Still, the researchers said because the supplements didn’t reduce joint pain, insurers and governments should stop buying them. “New prescriptions to patients who have not received treatment should be discouraged,” they wrote. The fact that the government does not pay for the supplements isn’t a coincidence. Ask your GP for a personalised programme to minimise the degenerative condition. Light to moderate, low-impact, aerobic exercise (e.g. swimming) should be one of your ‘medicines’. Painkillers and occasional anti-inflammatories should also be in your arsenal. Postural exercises as well as maintaining a healthy weight also need to be priorities for you.

Surgeons have precise preoperative routines; pilots have pre-flight rituals; athletes perform warm-up routines as well as rituals during their competitions; each one of us relies on personal rituals and routines in our daily undertakings.

To be truly successful, we must set and follow a pattern of rituals. Routines and rituals are time savers. They clarify, simplify, and create order, symmetry, and familiarity in chaos and high stress situations, allowing us to concentrate on what’s really important. Rituals become doubly important to anchor our time and ensure that what is important in our life gets done regardless of how crazy and hectic our life sometimes becomes. The next two weeks, whether we have a nutritional goal,a personal weakness to work on or a disempowering habit that damages our health, I would like you and me to focus on our routines, adjusting them if necessary and once we have them, stick to them.

The event was well attended by experts in the field and other interested parties

ver 200 people recently attended the series of talks on breast cancer organised by the O Hospiten group, which took place in the Salón de Actos de CajaSiete in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The event was opened by Hospiten’s Dr Rafael Cobiella, and dealt with the latest developments in prevention and treatment of breast cancer, with an attentive audience composed of medical personnel, experts in the field, as well as patients and individuals with an interest in the subject. The day ended with a round table discussion where people were invited to pose relevant questions which the experts were happy to answer. Specific themes dealt with included advances in epidemiology and breast cancer prevention, advances in diagnosing breast tumours, chemo-prevention, surgical changes in at-risk patients, and post-op brachytherapy.

Tea party fun

Cup of tea and a cake…mmmmmmmmmmm

Having a cuppa was never so much fun.

James’s Bistro in San Eugenio was the location for another great afternoon of fun and fund raising for the Cancer Eye Trust, with people paying just €3.50 for a lovely cup of tea or coffee and a home made cake. And very delicious they were too. Kids had buns free, and were able to swim in the pool to their hearts’ content, with all the money raised going to the deserving charity. And the star sweet turn of the day was definitely the cake made and donated by David.

Kids and cancer

Healthy minds…

new prevention programme for cancer aimed at 10-13 year old children is about to be put A into effect in Canarian schools. Designed by the national association against cancer, A.E.C.C., the project teaches youngsters to learn healthy lifestyle habits and avoid cancer risk behaviour and other themes related to tobacco, alcohol, nutrition and exercise. To appeal more to the children this free initiative has been developed as an e-learning exercise. Using a special access password and under the supervision of a teacher, the children will be able to access games, files, bibliographies and other materials.

Part Two

Alcohol is healthy, isn’t it? O ver the last four months I have been involved in constant discussions with a colleague about the real effects of alcohol. He mentions studies which have proven the benefits of consumption, I counter with the details

of the negative effects.

I finally decided to do some research, looking at the pros and cons. I found some very interesting studies and facts, the most interesting of which I have put together in a number of articles.

Alcohol and hormones

Chronic alcohol intake is one of the most powerful mediators of sex hormones. Ethanol is a testicular toxin and can increase the activity of aromatase, an enzyme that

shrink muscle tissue. Obesity is another independent risk factor for liver disease in alcoholics. When muscle is exposed to ethanol on a regular basis, it decreases in size, also receiving less blood circulation and distorted metabolism.

Summary and recommendations

If you don’t drink there’s no reason to start. If you do, then drinking small amounts of alcohol on a regular basis will likely offer the greatest health benefits without promoting fat gain. Any alcohol consumption above low to moderate levels can displace nutrients, increase health risks, and make you act like a degenerate at parties. Remember that alcohol is a drug. Be smart.

News in Brief

Alcohol and nutrients

Health law credit:Engideniz

The liver is a major storage depot for vitamins and converts vitamins into metabolically useful forms. Heavy alcohol consumption diminishes the uptake and utilisation of folate, vitamin B6, vitamin B1, and vitamin A. Folic acid deficiency is the most common vitamin deficiency among alcoholics, most likely due to the increased demand for nucleic acids needed for regeneration of injured liver cells. Nevertheless, poor dietary intake of folate also contributes. Alcohol acts as an antagonist to vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B3, and vitamin K. Vitamin E has also been depleted in those who consume alcohol.

19

converts testosterone to estrogen in the body. Chronic male alcoholics develop an assortment of endocrine disorders, including infertility, gonadal atrophy, and feminisation, caused in part by elevated production of estrogens and low testosterone levels. Alcohol abusers tend to have lower testosterone (and LH and FSH).

Alcohol can be healthy as well, can’t it

Moderate alcohol consumption has been associated with health benefits. But data from over 100 studies taking place in 25 countries demonstrates a link between alcohol intake and heart disease. The greatest benefits occur with small amounts of alcohol consumption several times per week, and those with the

highest risk of developing heart disease seem to benefit the most. The amount of alcohol that has been linked with the greatest decrease in risk is about one-half to one drink per day. Furthermore, all types of alcoholic beverages seem to offer benefits, not just red wine, which is popular among the public. Still, beverages like red wine may contain other ‘heart-protecting’ compounds. Excessive amounts of oxidative stress are associated with numerous chronic diseases like cardiovascular, cancer and diabetes. Regularly drinking more than moderate levels (more than 50 grams per day) can result in higher levels of oxidative stress, injure the liver, increase fat synthesis, displace nutrients (mostly B vitamins), displace omega-3 fat intake,

Time off for parents

The Spanish parliament hasjust passedameasure that will make life a bit easier for parents of children suffering from cancer or other serious illnesses.

U

nder the new provisions if both parents of the sick child are working, one of them may take time off or ‘sick leave’ and apply for state aid as unavailable for work, while they are minding their sick child. So while you obviously continue to worry about the health of your offspring, at least you can take the time to be with them, at least while they are hospitalised, without worr ying about how the mortgage or next shopping bill is going to be paid.

Atchoo!

Flu jab season

he 2010-2011 flu vaccine campaign has just T got under way in the Canary Islands with the regional department of health encouraging all those who fall into the risk groups to get themselves vaccinated as soon as possible.

While the heightened awareness of flus and vaccines of last year, due to the fear generated by the possibility of a swine flu pandemic, has receded, it’s no reason for those who would normally consider having the annual jab to let their guard down, and there will be information leaflets about the flu and the vaccine in health centres, schools, private clinics, senior citizen homes, and other public centres. Schools will also be receiving up to date information on how to avoid spreading

a virus, such as reminders to wash hands, cover your mouth when sneezing and coughing, and personal hygiene. As a further promotional aid the department is also distributing special packets of tissues on Binter and Islas Airways planes. The department recommends that the optimum time for vaccination is from now until mid-November as the normal time for flu epidemics to appear, and the winter flu can be highly contagious, affecting between five and 15 per cent of the population annually.

Who should be vaccinated? The department recommends that the following groups be vaccinated: • Over 65s;

• Those who are likely to suffer extra

complications from a flu virus, who have respiratory, cardiac, liver, renal or diabetic related illnesses; • Adults and children with any immune problems; • Adults and children with any motor neurone related problems; • Residents in old people’s homes; • Pregnant women; • Persons who are classified as severely obese (BMI 40+) • Health care professionals and those working in long term care (including domestic care); • Personnel in child care facilities and schools, police, fire personnel, public transport workers and taxi drivers, and in general workers who come into contact with the public on a regular basis.

Parking problem

with very high efficiency in a very short time, even if the car occupies only a very small part of the reserved space. See picture below

Dear Editor

C

an you pass on the following information to all your readers with cars who have struggled to find parking in certain parts of South Tenerife. After leaving Avenida Suecia towards San Telmo at the Chayofita block, extra attention should be paid when parking on the right hand side after the scooter and the disabled parking spaces. There is a sign which allows parking after the 9am-1pm ‘loading-unloading’ hours are over, but right next to this sign there is another one which indicates the reserved space for the pharmacy clients from Monday to Saturday 9am to 9 pm. I was not so vigilant and found to my unpleasant surprise that during mentioned hours the staff of the pharmacy can and will inform the police and your car will be taken away

What was that all about?

Cruz, here in South Tenerife nothing was going on to indicate there was a strike on. I was involved in a trade union for many years back in the UK and what we tried to do was listen to our members and represent them, but here the unions seem to take decisions and expect the masses to follow. Isn’t that what they’re accusing the government of doing, taking arbitrar y decisions without proper consultation?

I rest my weary case. R. Stern

 Rat (1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008) You will get the opportunity to show your creative skills now. Do not be too ambitious, you might get stressed out if you take too much on your plate.  Ox (1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009) You might be asked for help now. But you should stick to your own projects rather than doing the work of your colleagues or friends.  Tiger (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998) Even the tiger is allowed to show some weakness from time to time. So if you do not feel well, ask for help instead of keeping all the burden on your own shoulder.  Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999) Do not let those pessimists around you ruin your day! All is well for you – especially on the work front. If you stick to your plans, you cannot do wrong.

 Dragon (1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000) Sometimes it is a good idea to plan ahead – even if this normally is not your cup of tea. Be prepared and concentrate on every tiny little detail to make sure that everything goes well.  Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001) Have a close look at your work surroundings – there might be small mishaps due to exhaustion of man and machine. Maybe you need a break now.  Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002) Some horses might want to think about their commitments to their loved ones now. Maybe you have to give up some of your independance if you want to have a stable and lasting relationship.

 Sheep (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 You can take care of yourself! So don’t always expect help, but try to walk ahead without your usual support. If you succeed, this will give your self-esteem a real boost.  Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004) Take better care of your health now! Your personal resources are not endless. So if you feel the need to slow down, now is the perfect time to spend quality time with yourself.  Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005) Ambitious roosters can go ahead with their plans now. Make sure, that you check all the facts before investing in a new project.  Dog (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006) You do not always have to say yes, if somebody asks for a favour. It will not ruin the friendship nor have a bad influence on your work if you need more time for yourself now.  Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007) If you are angry with somebody, you should really tell the person how you feel. Do not gnaw on your bad emotions – spit them out! You will immediately feel better.

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.

The exhibition:

A ver, vamos

ango is about so much more than dance steps, and like any classical dance form, which has evolved and developed a modern style of its own, it’s about a merging of traditional forms of story telling with the body and feet into a new 21st Century setting.

Speaking to Tenerife’s tango teachers Viviana and Jason Segade it’s almost impossible not to want to grab a pair of stilettos (or a suitable hat if you’re male), and start sensualising immediately. This Argentinian/British pair have been living and working on the island for four years now, and developing quite a Tango following through their classes both in the north and south of Tenerife. The pair met while Jason was working in an acrobatic show in Malaysia and Viviana was with a dance troupe in 1991 and have been together ever since. They have travelled extensively, and though they are now a bit more settled (they have a 14 year old school-going son which keeps most people a bit grounded) they

will bring an extra frisson to the island for four days. Tango talks, and with so many classical and modern Monica and Omar Ocampo with tantalise Tenerife styles, evolving, it brings communication keep in touch with their international between the dancers and the audiences to a whole new level. It’s no wonder contacts through Facebook. So why is this interesting – it’s that it’s growing in popularity. If you’d like to find out more or sign interesting because through that contact they have persuaded Monica and Omar up for the workshops – you can take Ocampo to give a series of workshops just one class or sign up for four, six, (four in Tinerdanza, La Laguna, six in eight or ten - or book tickets for the Vivo Club, Las Américas) at the end of Milonga & Show, which promises to October. Monica and Omar are the be a fun, dressy and tang-tastic affair, crème de la crème of the Tango world, call Viviana or Jason on 670 760 281 and the workshops and Tango Ball, or email them on tangovivotenerife@ which will include dinner and a show, hotmail.com.

A

lone among assassins, Jack (George Clooney) is a master craftsman.

When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry that his next assignment will be his last. Jack resorts to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

he Spanish nominee for the Oscar short list for Best Foreign Language Film is Tambien la Lluvia (Even the Rain), directed by Iciar Bollain, not due for cinematic release until January of next year. The film deals with the story of Christopher Columbus in South America, is set in Bolivia and stars Spain’s Luis Tosar and Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal. The movie shows a director making a movie that depicts Columbus as being chiefly interested in gold and slaves, and not simply discovering new lands. This is the first time Spain has nominated a film directed by a woman in the category, and speaking to the national press Bollain said she was very honoured and delighted at the choice. Spain has won four Oscars for best foreign language film, Volver a Empezar (1982), Belle Epoque (1993), Todo Sobre Mi Madre (1999) and Mar Adentro (2004).

Installing a solar panel Part 2

Connecting up the system Manufacturers will supply a detailed diagram of how to connect the hot and cold water to the cylinder on the solar system. Also the flow and return from the panel to the cylinder. You must fit the components in the order stated by the manufacturer in the instructions.

Why fit an expansion tank? Water is incompressible. Unlike air, it’s impossible to squeeze any quantity of water into a smaller volume. This is important in a ‘closed’ water system. When the water gets heated it expands and that extra volume has to go somewhere. Without an expansion tank the pressure could rise to a dangerous level. It is essential to have an expansion tank on the return pipe from the cylinder to the panel. Robert completes

work to British Standards and so he also fits an expansion tank on the water main between the non-return valve and the cylinder for times when the pressure is not being released by hot water being drawn off. Once you have filled the panel with water, check there is no air in the system and the panel is clean (you will then need to clean it periodically). If you would like to get your system comprehensively checked over by a qualified technician, Robert will be able to do this for a modest fee.

How much should you pay for a system? Get several quotes, as prices vary a lot. However, there have been problems with cheap Chinese imports, so it is best to stick with a well-known make such as Chromagen or Junkers. Robert can also supply a high specification, standard system from €1,100.

Do more for your animals

ave you ever wondered how much more you can do to treat your animals, or yourself? It’s easy with Photonic Therapy, an Australian concept of complementary medicine, based on research published in 1996 by Dr Brian McLaren.

Dr. McLaren is a clinical scientist, a veterinary surgeon and the highest qualified acupuncturist in Australia, with postgraduate university qualifications both in veterinary and human acupuncture. He is a Fellow of the Australian Natural Therapists Association and a Member of the International Society for the Study of Pain. Photonic Therapy is the use of light instead of needles, to stimulate traditional acupuncture points in humans, horses and dogs. It is a complementary rather than an alternative treatment system, applied post-diagnostically, easy to use at home and without the need for specialised training. It is an effective safe, painless, scientifically advanced form of acupuncture, using red light (not laser), to gently stimulate the body’s own capacity to reduce pain, increase the immune response and promote healing. Photonic Therapy is basically the scientific application of light to particular areas of the skin of increased electrical conductivity, to produce particular physiological results. The en-

ergy of light (photons) is transformed into electrical energy by the connective tissue under the skin. This electrical energy is transmitted to the brain by the nerves. Stimulating specific combinations of points on the skin will cause the brain to release particular hormones and other chemicals to relieve pain, increase immune response, and promote healing. McLaren Photonic Therapy utilises broad band 660nm red light to provide the photons required to painlessly, and safely stimulate tissue. It has been successfully used to treat thousands of clinical cases in animals, painlessly, and without the risks associated with skin penetration. Also it is without the risks around the eyes associated with lasers. For horses it can be used to treat all types of problems including arthritis, back problems, breeding problems,

colic, Cushing’s disease, eye, founder, itchy skin, muscular pain, scars, sore shins, bleeding, sprains, wounds, urinary problems, viral diseases, and much more. Additionally in dogs it can be used for shock, heat exhaustion, bleeding, diarrhea, distemper, epilepsy, hepatitis, kennel cough, kidney disease, kidney stones, urinary problems, parvo virus, pancreatitis, scars, cervical disc disease, skin and fertility problems as well as emotional or mental disorders. Imagine how many human conditions this therapy can help too! Thanks to Photonic Therapy you can, after having being diagnosed, take action and treat yourself and your beloved four legged friends.

Bombay Babu Tandoori treats

By Our Galloping Gourmet

F

or months if not years I had heard the gripe from my other half “I’ve never tasted Indian food”, but at last I had the proper excuse to end that moan for once and for all. Here in the Canary Islands the arrival of good Indian restaurants has taken a while. Other Asian gourmet offerings, well Chinese food anyway, have been available for quite a while, but those searching for a flavour more Bombay than Beijing were disappointed. Imagine my delight then when I was told that Prakash Maher had opened the Bombay Babu, and Indian Tandoori restaurant in Torviscas, so as soon as we could gather the troops, my debut Indian eating other half, normally picky daughter and I were off to check it out. First impressions count, and from the get go we loved the huge open terrace, allowing you to eat outdoors or indoors while never feeling closed in. Décor is Indian but imaginatively so, with the colour scheme and décor complementing the menu rather than competing with it for attention. As my companion was a first-timer he happily placed himself in the hands of owner Prakash. Prakash and his family, Indian though with a UK background, have been in business in Tenerife for almost 20 years (Prakash himself went to Wingate as a lad), and know their customers well. He also travels back and forth to India quite a lot, both to see members of his extended family as well as stock up on exclusive supplies of spices and herbs for the restaurant. The family also have an extensive farm here in Las Galletas where much of the vegetables and specialist food, particularly for those with dietary needs, comes from. Prakash also explained that much of Indian cuisine has a vegetarian base and many Indians are vegetar-

ians by choice, seeing it as a healthy life-style choice, as are many people worldwide. And that is reflected in the Bombay Babu menu too, with extra attention and care given to providing a very wide vegetarian selection. On to the age old question of how hot should an Indian meal be? Prakash says everyone should feel comfortable about finding their own level, and the chefs in Bombay Babu (with experience of cooking for UK diners) are happy to prepare dishes to suit your taste. Bearing all that in mind, we started off with, of course, some papadums (giant crisps to my delighted daughter) and a pickle tray with mango chutney, spicy onions and mint yogurt. We then were treated to a selection of starters, including Paneer Pakora, a delicious Indian soft cheese dipped in a batter and deep fried, Sheekh Kebab and Chicken Tikka sizzlers and succulent Vegetable Samosa. So far so very good. Following a quick visit to the incredibly hot Tandoor, the clay oven that forms the basis of Tandoori cooking, we were ready to decide on main courses. I chose Chicken Bhuna and Prakash suggested Chicken Korma (without spices) for my younger companion (it’s sweet and easy on a young palate) and for her dad, the novice, a Jalfrezi was decided upon. This was to be the test. As the food began to arrive, with a mouthwatering selection of different kinds of Naan bread (did you know they’re cooked stuck to the side of the Tandoor oven? Until now I didn’t.) our appetites increase. Presentation was excellent, but was outclassed by the sauces. Regardless of our individual choices we were more than enthusiastic about all the food to be eaten. And it was a treat indeed, all of the sauces so obviously freshly prepared, with delicate spicy tastes tantalizing with each mouthful. The Bhuna was sweetish and creamy without overpowering the delicate chicken flavour,

but the Jalfrezi was the hit of the evening, the combination of ginger, garlic, green chilli, green pepper and chopped onions mixed with the sauce, quite excellent and from now on will be my first choice. The preparation of these sauces and dishes really is an art in itself with the flavour balances that are achieved within each dish. The food was accompanied by portions of Pilau Rice and Mushroom Rice, just as carefully prepared and presented.

The restaurant is hoping to become a family favourite and is currently planning to convert one section into a play area for kids so parents can relax over their food while the younger members play in peace, once they have eaten from the Children’s menu, which has the important standards like chicken nuggets and fish fingers, but also a range of spicefree Indian dishes. Price-wise too the Bombay Babu will be a welcome addition to your list of places to go, with start-

ers from €2.50 upwards, main courses starting at just €6.00, and they are offering a 20 per cent resident discount. The bar stocks wines and beers as well as soft drinks and Lassi drinks (an Indian yogurt blend). We left Bombay Babu very

satisfied, with a definite return date in mind, and a new Indian food fan in the family.

*Bombay Babu operates a take-away service and hopes to add a delivery service soon.

Insurance

Liberty Seguros

When is cheap insurance not that cheap? W

ith so many insurance products on offer today, it’s not easy to know which insurer would be best suited to you and your needs in Spain. With the market as it is at present, many are lowering the price of their premiums to make insurance products more attractive – but is choosing the cheapest insurance always the wisest option? Iván Ortego, Expatriate Business Manager at Liberty Seguros, the expats preferred insurer with over 150,000 international clients, believes that we should consider a number of factors before purchasing cover for our assets. “When taking out a policy for your vehicle, house or any other aspect of your life (especially following the bankruptcy of an online insurer that occurred this summer), you should look beyond the price and ask yourself if the unexpected was to ever happen to you, would you be sufficiently protected.” Mr Ortego recommends that firstly – and consider-

ing the current climate – one should consider a company that is located in Spain because amongst other advantages you would be covered by the Spanish Insurance Consortium (Consorcio). Secondly, he recommends ensuring that the cover contracted is sufficient, because if a serious accident was to happen, then cheaper policies that only cover a small amount of damage might not be enough to protect you from all eventualities. “Without doubt you need to read the small print and check that you are covered, for example, up to 50 million euros worth of damage for third party claims with regard to vehicles; just as you would be with Liberty Seguros. Because if you do find yourself in a situation where you’re required to pay out, cheap insurance may end up costing you more than you’d bargained for”. As such, an important aspect of choosing an insurance company and product is understanding the small print. This is made much easier when you opt for a company that actually speaks your language.

La Despensa del Pueblo

You can buy anything from water to Corn Flakes, Colman’s mustard to mojo sauces and frozen food. They have a wide range of well-known brands all packed together in one place, exactly what is needed here in the north of the Island. Products from Iceland also make up a good part of their frozen food range and the cost is reasonable. The Village Shop is airy and well laid out. It’s bright and clean and all the products can be easily seen. There is a separate section for wines and spirits where you can buy wine from different parts of the world, including Australia, Chile, USA and of course Spain

and the Canary Islands, specifically wine from Tenerife. Prices are reasonable and many of these wines are exclusive to The Village Shop. You can buy your daily newspaper there, as well as find the local free press in English and German. So if you live in the north (between Santa Cruz and Buenavista) and need frozen products from Iceland, pop along to Cuesta de la Villa. Their prices are very competitive, and if you want something from the UK that you haven’t yet found, come along and see if it’s there. If not, they will do their best to get it for you. To get to the Village Shop,

Katy column

I

Hello everyone,

can’t tell you how delighted I am to be writing a column for Island Connections.

I’ve missed you a lot, particularly your funny stories, and last week I spent a delightful hour with an old friend called Graham from Guía de Isora. We were having coffee in Playa San Juan and the chat turned to celebrities we’d both known over the years. Lennie Bennett was a lovely man, and had many tales to tell. When he was being presented to the Queen and Prince Philip, the Queen asked how

he was and he replied, “fine, thank you Marm. Are you going to the cup final?” She answered “No, I’m afraid not”, so Lennie cheekily asked if he could have her ticket. Needless to say, he didn’t get it. He was being interviewed on Radio Scotland one July when breaking news came through of the death of Bing Crosby. The producer hastily sent one of the production team to the local record shop to buy one of his records as they had none on file apart from White Christmas. They had no time to test so the interviewer went live on air with Lennie to make the announce-

ment. They cued up the record and it began to play, “Heaven, I’m in Heaven”…and Lennie couldn’t help himself, he giggled all the way through it. A similar thing happened to me many years ago when I was new to radio. I was given a Saturday morning slot with Oasis Gold, and the night before my second show, I was told by my friend Jean from the bar Our Place in Costa del Silencio, that her partner Bobby had sadly passed away from cancer. When I first began doing shows in the Silencio area, Jean used to come with Bobby to watch the show and he was terrified of me. I used to

Legal reform

Company compensation

A new law could compensate companies who change or make more flexible working conditions for members of staff who are currently signed off as sick. The starting point for the plan, which is to be financed by the mutuas (work insurance companies) who are currently responsible for paying the wages of sick staff, is for a formal agreement to be drawn up between the company and the staff representative. The idea is that less people will be entitled to sickness benefit as more will be able to be incorporated back into the workplace and according to Celestino Corbacho, Minister for Employment, “to reduce absenteeism not only for control purposes, but to make the working day more flexible, to change work conditions, reinsert sick workers and improve the overall health of the workers”. Anticipation of the rehabilitation process by the mutuas is also under study and a minimum payment for those who are off work ill to stop abuses in groups of workers most badly off, home helps, nannies, day contract workers and foreigners etc.

Debt control

Teguise squeeze

The Lanzarote borough of Teguise is the latest of the Canarian municipalities to put the squeeze on debtors. Corporate patience is running out as funds from both the central and Canarian Government are cut and there is little room for financial manoeuvrability for the local administrations. Teguise has now published the names of over 3,000 debtors from 2007, 2008 and 2009 in the Official Bulletin for a total of almost €1.3 million. The next stage will be to embargo the bank accounts of the individuals and companies who have been named.

Markets

New EU regulations

From January 1, 2011, all the municipal market stalls in Spain must go out to tender and current stall holders will have to apply for a place in the same way as new vendors. The new ruling comes from the EU, named for the European Commissioner, Frits Bolkestein, and the idea, at least on paper, is to equalise commerce across the Union and reduce levels of bureaucracy. Facing increasing competition in the market from the 150 shops and Chinese outlets, and with the economic crisis, existing stall holders fear that they will lose their means of making a living and that new stall owners will sublet to the highest bidders.

Job prospects

Unemployment

Experts have warned that unemployment levels will not decrease for a decade. In a recent conference organised by the political group, Nueva Canarias, three economics professors, two from La Laguna University and one from Madrid gave their opinion that it would take at least ten years before the number of unemployed dropped to pre-crisis levels. They also warned that for this to take place the economic model of the Canaries would have to change. Applied economy professor, José Luis Rivero declared that it was impossible for the Islands to compete with major European economies in major markets, but that we would have to find, “the nooks that were left”.

trap him against the bar, kneel down, and sing, “I wanna be Bobby’s Girl”. The sight of this macho male cowering in fear used to send Jean and all her pals into fits of laughter and she asked me to announce his passing on the radio and play this song. Chris and Jen had bought me a double CD for Christmas, (in those days we used records and tapes not computers) and this song was Side 2 number one. I had everything arranged (or so I thought) and began to talk about the passing of a friend who used to sit in the corner of the bar every night and sing his heart out. Then

Festival de Amor

I announced I was going to play this particular song in his memory, and pushed up the fader. To my horror, out came the strains of Side 1 number two. I’d got the sides mixed up. And the title of the song? McGuinness Flint, “When I’m dead and gone”. Imagine my horror!!!! Thankfully Jean saw the funny side and we’ve remained pals for many years and she never fails to remind me of it. So I look forward to seeing you all out and about, and especially getting your phone calls and emails with your news and charity events which I am always delighted to help with.

All you need is love...

The first Festival de Amor, organised by the Ayuntamiento of Adeje for unattached over-30s looking for a partner, takes place from the 5th to 7th November, at Hotel Callao Sport, according to Diario de Avisos. With a spa, chocolate fountains, gala dinners, games.... it’s sure to be a fun weekend... Island Connections accepts no responsibility for what may happen!

Finance

Lifetime mortgages Longer life expectancy and the high cost of home ownership are changing the parameters for age limits on mortgages. It is no longer unusual to see mortgages extended until the client’s 90th year and the heirs can choose to continue with the mortgage payments or sell the property to liquidate the debt. The result for the client is a cheaper mortgage over a longer period. It’s not a new kind of mortgage, more an evolution of the existing deal and aimed at 55 to 60 year olds with a high level of debt and only a few remaining years to pay off their mortgage (which will mean of course that the equity in the property is high and the risk to the finance company correspondingly low). Or of course you may have only borrowed a small percentage of the total cost of your home in which case the same applies. If you are having trouble getting to the end of the month, this may be an option you want to look at. It’s not a new option but a tendency that has been developing over the last few years thanks to the increased life expectancy, the

high level of unemployment and increased household debt. For new loans, the option of a ‘hereditary mortgage’ is currently only on offer from CreditServices and is run on similar lines to the lifetime equity release mortgages available elsewhere in Europe whereby you pay only the interest on the loan and the original debt plus costs is left for your heirs. According to one official study, three out of four people or families with home loans allocate over 40 per cent of their monthly income to their mortgage and one in five have had to lengthen their loan period at least once in the last

12 months. It is important to bear in mind the costs and that your heirs may not wish to continue to pay the mortgage or agree on a course to take and your testament should deal with this and although it may be tempting to extend the mortgage as long as you can and thus reduce immediate costs, commissions and interest accumulate and it may be wiser to take only a further 10 years. Make the calculations and estimate your best option. Service providers believe the new limit will cut down on overall debt and the number of people losing their homes through non-payment.

I n dustry an d exports

Car production T

he car industry in Spain registered a drop of 41 per cent in August, their worst figure since 1997. What’s more the home market is severely depressed and 98.4 per cent of the vehicles produced are destined for the export trade. Over the first eight months of the year, an increase of 20.1 per cent was noted over the 2009 statistics, but when the incentive funds from the Spanish Government’s special purchase plans ran out, the Spanish resident buyers bowed out.

Car of th e futu r e

The new Toyota

Auris Hybrid

the new Toyota Auris Hybrid value for money.

P

roving that advanced, low emission technology need not cost the earth, the new, British-built Toyota Auris Hybrid has the measure of its main rivals on value for money. Europe’s first full hybrid Csegment model, it combines fivedoor family practicality with proven low emissions, high efficiency, quality and the reliability of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive. The 134bhp Auris Hybrid matches conventional 2.0-litre diesels in performance, but with significantly lower emissions and better fuel economy. All versions achieve less than 100g/

km emissions (89g/km with 15inch wheels, 93g/km with 17-inch wheels), which means owners pay less annual road tax. Thanks to combined cycle fuel consumption of 74.3mpg (70.6mpg with 17-inch wheels), Auris Hybrid drivers will be paying out a lot less at the pumps too. The great reliability of Hybrid Synergy Drive has been proved by its success in the Prius, which has achieved the lowest warranty cost per unit of any Toyota model. Emphasising quality, reliability and peace-of-mind, Auris Hybrid, like all new Toyota cars, is covered by a five-year warranty. Residual values are also expected to compare well

with the best in the C-segment, calculated by Toyota Financial Services (TFS) to be 38 per cent after three years or 60,000 miles. Auris Hybrid’s servicing intervals maximise the benefit of the car’s component lifetime efficiency. The Hybrid Synergy Drive system itself has been designed for low maintenance requirements and durability, and has no need for a conventional starter motor or alternator. The 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol engine has a maintenancefree timing chain, an element-type oil filter, miniaturised spark plugs and no drive belts, features which deliver worthwhile cost savings. Thanks to the efficiency of the Electronically Controlled Braking System, the front and rear brake pads are good for 40,000 and 70,000 miles respectively. High tyre pressures (2.4 or 2.3bar)

reduce wear significantly, with typical durability of more than 30,000 miles. The standard 15 and 17-inch tyres also cost less than purpose-made alternatives. The exhaust system is expected to last for more than five years, thanks to its high stainless steel content and the LED lamp bulbs have a 20-year lifespan. The new Toyota Auris Hybrid scooped its first award, the WhatGreenCar Car of the Year 2010 instantly after going on sale. The Auris Hybrid was chosen from a short-list of 10 finalists which were test-driven by six of the UK’s leading green transport and environmental experts. Cheaper and smaller than the Prius, the new Auris Hybrid will allow significantly more car buyers to join the ‘hybrid owners’ club. In addition to the car’s superior drive and state-of-the-art driver control options, the judges also noted its ‘normal’ looks, in contrast to the more futuristic Prius, and a sign that hybrid technology is now becoming mainstream. The benefits of the Auris Hybrid’s Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain go beyond exceptional fuel economy and low emissions: it is user-friendly and delivers a quiet, comfortable and stress-free drive unlike anything else in the Csegment.

Lexus CT 200h

T

he new Lexus CT 200h, the company’s future compact car is currently in its final development stage and having completed exhaustive road tests, was presented at the Paris motor show at the end of September. Increased driving pleasure and ultra-low emissions (leader in its segment) with Lexus Hybrid Drive technology, mean that with two sources of energy the driver gets the best of both worlds. In conventional mode, a dynamic or relaxing drive can be selected, and in Hybrid mode, choose Normal or ECO, while caring for the environment at the same time. The future CT 200h has been designed for those who are conscious of environmental issues but do not wish to sacrifice the pleasure of driving, luxury finish and equipment which usually come with a normal model. Lexus think that the CT 200h will appeal to a younger public.

Boxing By George Reed

Madison Square Garden T

here can’t be any argument that the most famous ring in the history of boxing is the one erected in Madison Square Garden in New York in 1925 and dismantled three years ago and gifted to boxing’s Hall of Fame in Canastota, a couple of hundred miles away in up-state New York.

The old ring must have been on the point of collapsing under the weight of so many historical punch-ups and stained Joe Frazier with the blood, sweat and tears of the many contestants involved in world title fights on its platform. On viewing the historic ring in Canastota, boxing fans frequently say, ‘if this ring could only talk’. Well during the annual induction weekend in June a number of world champions did the talking, recalling the 15 round championship fights, the knockouts and the drama during the many ring wars. Among the celebrities were former world middleweight champion Emile Griffith, who fought in the famous ring 26 times. The great Joe Louis successfully defended his world heavyweight crown eight times on boxing’s most hallowed stage, and on his forced comeback from retirement at the age of 37 in 1931 the ‘Brown Bomber’ was laid flat out on the same canvas by Rocky Marciano. But even though most of the greats for over 80 years fought battles in the fabled ring, the one boxing fans speak about more than any other is the one simply known to this day as ‘The Fight’. Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier were both unbeaten champions when they faced each other in the ‘ring’ in 1971, it turned into a tremendous battle and Ali’s bravery was breathtaking as he fought for 10 rounds with a broken jaw. Frazier persistently bored in like a bull while Ali continually dodged and speared in his shafts like a matador. In the 15th round Frazier caught Ali with a tremendous left hook to floor him, but Ali was back on his feet before the count of ten, yet it was a signal that the great Ali was mortal after all, as Frazier was the unanimous points winner. Among the many celebrities was Frank Sinatra who, having left it too late to purchase a ticket, had begged a press card and a camera, and took pictures for Life magazine from the old ring’s apron.

UD Las Palmas

Speed the key

Megabowl Compiled by Doreen Lemm

10 pin bowling league results

Las Palmas manager Paco Jémez is convinced that his side has taken the second division by surprise during the opening part of the season because of its swift attacking style, which opponents have found hard to cope with. While neighbours Tenerife languish at the foot of the table, Las Palmas have taken notable scalps home and away and are already tipped by pundits as potential promotion candidates. “We are a very direct team, playing at Trainer Jémez says the side’s attacking style is key to their early success a speed rarely found at this level” insists Jémez, who welcomed the team’s latest arrival, Colombian international Edixon Perera, at the end of September. Perera was snapped up after his move to Blackburn Rovers hit immigration snags. The unexpected early success at Las Palmas has boosted ticket sales massively, with almost one thousand fans applying for season tickets in the days that followed the win away to Villarreal B.

Gran Canaria show who is boss Basketball

The pre-season basketball friendlies between ACB outfit Gran Canaria and La Laguna’s Socas Canarias (now playing under the new name of Isla de Tenerife Canarias since merging with Tenerife Rural) showed the difference in standard between the respective leagues. Although Socas can claim to be one of the top sides in the LEB league, having narrowly missed out

on promotion last season, their Las Palmas neighbours demonstrated on all three occasions that the ACB league (dubbed the Spanish NBA) is still a major step up in class. In the last friendly before the start of the season, Gran Canaria, led by 32-year-old Irish international Jim Moran who is now in his tenth season at Gran Canaria, ran out comfortable winners (7353) and Socas coach Alejandro

Martínez admitted afterwards that the physical nature of the ACB game is beyond his players. “They (Gran Canaria) are much more accustomed to dishing it out on court and we could not cope. They also have strength in depth which we cannot match but we did our best, bearing in mind the injuries we have been plagued by since August” said Martínez.

Sour grapes

HumiArconada accuses ‘enemies’ of treachery liation claims

Sacked Tenerife coach Gonzalo Arconada broke an unwritten rule in football that you go quietly and with dignity when he launched an unprecedented attack on “enemies within the club” for precipitating his departure. Dismissed after just five games in charge, Arconada hit out at one of Tenerife’s ‘sacred cows’, longstanding assistant coach and former captain Toño Hernández, for making life difficult for him. “I would like to thank all the officials and staff for their help during my brief stay, except one, who was imposed on

me by the club from the beginning. Clearly, there was bad feeling that he was not given the manager’s job. He was the source of negative leaks to the media, which were designed to sour the dressing room atmosphere and complicate life for the manager. I took the decision not to have any dealings with him as of a certain point” explained Arconada, adding that he felt “betrayed” by his assistant’s behaviour. Tenerife deny the accusations and are believed to have offered the services of the club lawyer should Hernández decide to sue his former boss.

Laser Radial Class

Alicia retains crown Tenerife yachtswoman Alicia Cebrián retained her national crown with an impressive showing at the Spanish Championships in Galicia. Cebrián, who is a member of the Nautico Yacht Club in Santa Cruz, won her Laser Radial Class but admitted afterwards that the conditions, which forced the cancellation of two of the legs, were not ideal for her style of racing.

53

“There was very little wind for long spells and then suddenly it blew stronger. The race was in an estuary, not open sea, which took some getting used to” she explained. 27-year-old Cebrián has had a good year so far, including second place at the prestigious Miami OCR event, and has her sights set now on the Olympic Week of sailing to be held in the Canaries in December.

A popular night spot in Las Palmas has denied claims by a 24-year-old woman footballer that she was humiliated by door staff because of her manly appearance and for being a lesbian.

24-year-old Noelia Macías, who is a Spain junior international and plays in goal for Las Palmas in the Spanish Ladies Premiership, says she was insulted by bouncers at the Heineken Klub, one of the city’s biggest discos, when she tried to go in with her partner. “They laughed at me and asked for proof of age even though they know my age. I was verbally abused and encouraged to find a bloke to sleep with, all because of my sexuality”. However, the owner of the disco flatly denies the discrimination and insists that the goalkeeper was refused admission because of previous trouble she had caused.

watching over a whole weekend! It would have been easy to postpone the event this year due to the crisis but the need for something to make people smile and give some players the chance of a lifetime to play against ex stars makes the tournament a big requirement during these tough times! The great news is that it is free to come in and watch these exWorld Cup, EPL and SPL stars play against maybe your brother, boyfriend, dad or uncle and this year we are proud to advise that we have even more social players flying in from all over Europe just to play. The tournament will take place on Friday 19th, Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st November at the fantastic Adeje Las Torres Sports Complex just off exit 79B on

the TF1 with entertainment provided for the whole family over the whole weekend. For more information on the fun, slow motion football weekend please check out the website: www.soccerexperience.com or call/sms: +34654200470 for any further information on sponsorship packages available that might suit your company. In the next editions of Island Connections we will keep you posted on player updates and info on this special event being held again in Southern Tenerife!

Kids’ league Soccer Experience have started a weekly kids’ league for young players seven years old and above. There are al-

ready three teams playing and they are looking for two more to ensure lots of good fun and a wee bit of a weekly competitive spirit between now and Christmas. So if you have a group of young players or if your son or daughter is looking to play, they can be placed on an existing team or build a new team with individuals. These league games will be played every Saturday with either a 12.30pm or a 1.30pm kick off. Teams so far are the Mighty Whites who will play very clean football under the direction of Darren, Tulsa Thunder, who wear a set of strips donated by friends of Soccer Experience from Tulsa University in the USA and Geordie Gavin’s All Stars.

Taylor’s Lounge once again sit top of the master’s league and now as we hit October, the lads have been undefeated for a whole year - a wonderful achievement for the team. The chasing sides are trying to close the gap as Oliver’s Masters gave the reigning champs a real scare this week. Taylor’s Lounge just managed to scrape a win 3:2. Also doing well in their second season are Spanish Style who are beginning to move close to contention along with the free scoring Hole in the Wall side who, once they tighten a slightly leaky defence, can make a good challenge.

Championship league Summary There is nothing to choose between the top four sides and the chasing pack are closing in. Lee Morfitt’s Pueblo Torviscas side still sit top of the league with a four point gap but with some huge games coming up that could all change in a matter of weeks. Linekers Bar are on a wonderful undefeated run of six games and are the

leaders’ next opponents, so a win for them would see them move into contention for the first time this season. At the other end of the table I.C. Media are just turning a corner though still not gaining the results they deserve, but their performances have improved greatly and with a few new faces in the side, captain John feels his side’s fortunes are sure to turn around in the next few games.

Over 35s league summary Shane’s L.A. Veterans side once again retain top spot in the league and still remain undefeated going into the second season and with a 13:1 demolition of Morfitt Rentals that will not be changing any time soon. Scruffy Macs still sit joint top and Captain Phil has big ambitions this season. The Cana Bar side also remain undefeated this season with some great performances and this week defeated huge rivals Connection 6 in what turned out to be a very high bounce back from 4:2 down to win the game 5:4. Connection 6 will have to look at their discipline to gain any points from the return fixture .

Rugby season warm-up La Lagu na vs. Nan du

T

 he 25th of September marked yet another date in La Laguna’s Rugby Club history with a pre-season friendly between the La Laguna team and Nandu, starting a brand new season in its rich if short history (founded 1986).

“Rugby is growing in popularity” reports Bruce Scot, Head Coach of the University of La Laguna club. “Despite losing one club about 18 months ago due to the financial crisis, both Nandu and our club stand out as the stalwarts of the game in Tenerife. In order for the sport to evolve even more, both clubs need to be equally strong. A number of new initiatives are

being generated in conjunction with local government to put foundations in place to enable both clubs to publicise the positive aspects of the game, especially within the community, such as multi culturalism, team building as

well as promoting individual skills. As Bruce commented, “no matter what shape you are there is a position for you on the rugby field”. So September 25th was a celebration of the new season. The weather was overcast and

had a limited time together and I purposely took a large squad of players to give them all a game. We did have a few minor injuries, twisted ankle of our first choice centre and whilst he wanted to continue I thought it best to rest him as there is a long season ahead”. The team performed reasonably well but as any coach would tell you there is always room for improvement. The game was played in a great spirit, both sides willing to play with ball in hand and counvery humid. Both sides took ter attacking whenever the precautions in ensuring all opportunity arose. Over the players remained hydrated. four chukkas La Laguna were The match itself was equal- ahead until the third when ly balanced, both struggled poor defense allowed some with ball retention, set pieces soft tries and easy conversions. and were generally ring rusty. In the fourth there was little to Bruce commented, “we have choose and both sides scored

a try and conversion each. In all a good afternoon’s work and as a team we thoroughly enjoyed our local derby with Nandu, which was of course, followed up with a few beers, food and laughter afterwards. As Bruce commented “this represents the spirit of Rugby: enjoy playing the game and enjoy each others’ company afterwards”. On 9th October La Laguna are hosting a tournament for Cristo which is a round robin competition between Island teams as an official start to the season, before commencing with the League Championship which gets under way in November. Everyone is welcome and details of the venue will be posted on www.rugbytenerife.com

First Division 04/10/2010

New manager steadies the ship CD Tenerife

By Chris Todd

The stop gap management team of Merino (promoted for the match from the B team) and assistant Toño failed to stop the run of losses for CD Tenerife in Andalucia. Xerez were relegated to the second division alongside Tenerife last season and it is fair to say that they have adapted to life in the lower league better than their visitors on the day. Due to television requirements the game was played on a Friday night which was a first for both clubs. This proved unpopular for the local support and a huge banner was unfurled before kick off which read “Football on Fridays? Smash the television!” The blanquiazules started the brighter side but this small ray of hope was short lived and Xerez took control of proceedings soon after. Two goals in the space of seven minutes by Xerez summed up Tenerife´s season so far. A distinct lack of confidence in attack coupled with insecurity in defence. The goals were class it must be admitted. The first was scored by exAtletico striker (amongst many other La Liga teams) José Mari and the second by Cordero after more woeful zonal defending. Tenerife rarely travel well and at half-time being 2:0 down, rock bottom in the league as well as in confidence there was only one possible outcome to this match. It was difficult to know who to blame for the defeat. The stand-in manager only had days to work with the players and going to promotion candidates Xerez was never an easy task anyway. The effort from the players was there but the disjointed manner of the system was all too plain to see. Xerez went for the kill and tried to score a third but the Tenerife defence (for once) held firm in the second half, the only positive thing to take from the game. It was the kind of match that you just wanted to get over and done with

knowing that the new manager was on his way to (hopefully) turn things around. It appears that the players thought the same way.

3/10/10 CD Tenerife 1:1 Cartagena The game was billed as a dawning of a new era for the blanquiazules after their pointless start to the campaign. New manager Juan Carlos Mandiá promised a fresh look to the team during the week and they certainly started the game with the bit between their teeth. The first twenty minutes belonged to CD Tenerife as they slowly started to reproduce the type of football that the fans here are accustomed to. Tick-a-taka, short passing, play down the wings, movement. These are basically the same players who were described as the Barcelona of the second division not so long ago during our glorious promotion season. A change in attitude by the players was evident and with the backing of over 16,000 supporters cheering from the stands everything was set for a first blanquiazul victory. Or so we thought. This performance was an improvement for sure but the team still showed

some of the frailties that have plagued this ever so disappointing start to the season. Cartagena weathered the initial storm and slowly but surely bullied their way back into the match. The game lost its rhythm towards the end of the half as the intense thirty degree heat appeared to take its toll on both sides. But suddenly a spate of incidents livened up proceedings as Dani Kome went close with a fierce shot and Nino hit the bar after lobbing the Cartagena keeper Casilla. Just before the break Cartagena were reduced to ten men as Sánchez was sent off. New Tenerife manager Mandiá was also sent off for protesting from the sidelines. The second half proved to be an exciting affair. On the hour mark and against the run of play Cartagena were awarded a penalty which was duly converted by Toché. Tenerife were losing yet again and this time against ten players, it looked very bleak at that stage. The team, although stunned, fought back and were level soon after. After a probing run down the right Juanlu Hens cut the ball back to Nino on 67 minutes who coolly finished with a low drive.

On the plus side, we looked to be more of a team,
