Families in shock Two young Tenerife-based Britons for December sentencing

A

manda Lambert, mother of 19 year old Tiffany who could face a lengthy jail term in Britain after being caught, with another Tenerife-based Briton, trying to smuggle a quarter of a million pounds worth of cocaine out of the UK through Heathrow Airport, told Island Connections that she was convinced her daughter had somehow wanted to be caught.

Her daughter, along with 20 year old Jamie Daughtry, were found to have kilos of the drug strapped to their bodies before they reached the scanner at the airport. They were scheduled to fly to Australia via Hong Kong on Tuesday 16th November. Amanda told us that she had believed her daughter was working in North Tenerife at the time of her arrest, as Tiffany had left the south the previous Sunday and told her mother she had been offered a week’s work doing PR for

Amanda said that her daughter then came on the phone for a few seconds sobbing and indicated that she had been forced to smuggle the drugs and threatened. In hindsight Amanda says she should have known that

something was wrong, as the only sim card Tiffany had was a UK one and she was not her usual ‘jolly’ self on Facebook. “I think she thought she was helping out a friend”, Amanda says, who also says she believes her daughter “wanted

to back out”, but in the end, it would seem, didn’t. She says that Tiffany told her that she knew she had done something really stupid and “was going to have to pay dearly for it”, but added, “she’s such a bubbly girl, she wouldn’t hurt a fly…she’s not a danger to the public”. The death of her father a few years ago deeply affected Tif fany, her mother told us, and she left school, but “didn’t go down a bad road” and recently had started to get her life together. She had been working in telesales, and even started to study again… but that is of course now on hold. Amanda now only hopes that her presence at the sentencing, scheduled for later this month, will help and is planning to take character references, “I have to do as much as I can”.

Five years after the tropical storm Delta took the Islands by surprise and left millions of euros of damage in its wake, the Canaries is waking up to another storm damage bill, hopefully not as high as in 2005.

M

ost parts of the islands appear to have escaped with minor damage, although some roads were closed, ferries cancelled and flights delayed. In parts of Tenerife, damage was, if anything, worse than that wreaked by Delta. Winds of up to 190 kph struck Izaña and 140 kph in Puerto de la Cruz where four people were slightly injured by falling glass. Elsewhere a 36 year man is still in hospital with serious head injuries after an iron door fell on him and in Playa de Amadores, Gran Canaria, an adult and child were injured when a large plant pot fell from a great height. In Fuerteventura, some houses in Antigua reported flooding, Morro Jable saw 12 litres of rain per square metre fall in half an hour, and in Tuineje part of a small bridge was washed away. Reports indicated that yet again the agricultural sector will pay dearly, with banana, and avocado farmers reporting high levels of damage and 31 schools in the Canaries were unable to reopen the following day due to storm damage.

Tenerife South base? The young pair were caught at Heathrow airport.

The Jinamar store is over 3,500 m2 and the opening coincided with the inauguration of this new commercial centre, just 10 minutes drive from Las Palmas airport. Primark directors from Dublin were on hand to welcome the public, who have already been visiting the company’s first shop in the Canaries, in CC Las Arenas, in their droves. This second Canarian shop, on two floors, is larger than the one in CC Las Arenas, and is a further boost to the local economy, employing more than 200 people in the area. Since the opening of the first shop in Las Palmas shoppers have been visiting in their hundreds, but not just from Gran Canaria. Shoppers from Tenerife, who in the past flew to the Spanish peninsula specifically to visit Primark shops there, are now taking the easier route, by boat or plane, to the neighbouring island. We will keep readers informed of news of further openings.

This exciting new Artesan Market will be open daily from 4pm to 10pm in a spacious covered area beside the Torviscas beachfront walkway.

Charlie winning in Granadilla in 2009

International win

Charlie Karlsen wows Berlin Young Tenerife singer Charlie Karlsen, representing Spain, has won first prize in the Festival Berliner Perle 2010 in a gala which took place at the Casa de Cultura Rusa in Berlin at the end of November. Representing the borough of Arona, Charlie competed against 50 other young singers from 19 countries for the prize. This is not the first win for Charlie, a Wingate alumni, who in 2009, was the winner of the Festival Jóvenes Promesas which took place in the Los Cristianos Cultural Centre, and also the Voz del Atlántico prize which he collected at this year’s Universong-Festival internacional de la cancion de las Islas Canarias. He also won Tenerife’s Got Talent competition in 2008. His participation in the Berlin contest was supported by the Arona council, and was made possible via a programme to promote Canarian singers in Europe organised by ORFEUM (the organisation of European music festivals).

23,000 people were left without electricity in Tenerife, particularly in Los Realejos, Icod de los Vinos, Arico, Arona and San Miguel and it is believed that the storm was the reason for a shipwreck which caused the death of one British sailor, fortunately his companion was saved. Throughout the day of the storm Cabildos were monitoring the situation, and TV Canaries were brought live updates throughout the day to viewers, and reported their highest audience share ever following their comprehensive coverage and the state weather agency’s web, Aemet, received over eight and a half million visits

:: interview ::

Ricardo Fernández de la Puente Armas / Deputy Tourism Minister

Open all hours T

he newly appointed regional deputy tourism minister has told Island Connections that “tourism, and I mean in capital letters, is the motor of the Canarian economy, make no mistake about it. This is not to say that the government isn’t also looking to other sectors within the Canaries to help the economy, but at the present moment in time the only activity that can give the economy the immediate boost it may need, and help boost employment, is tourism”. This is one of the reasons, he says, that regional president Paulino Rivero has also incorporated the duties of tourism minister into his office, and is encouraging interdepartmental co-operation in this important area. Ricardo Fernández de la Puente Armas, who worked for 10 years as manager of the regional hotels federation, Ashotel, continued “we are a massive destination, with a

huge amount of beds on offer, and we should be looking to attract every kind of tourist who wants to come to the Canaries”. Whether people are looking for a stay in a luxury hotel, families looking for four star accommodation, others who want rural tourism, or alternative kinds of accommodation, “it’s important to stress that there isn’t just one kind of tourist….” These islands, he says, have enough diversity to please everyone. This includes, he stressed, those tourists who opt for the often derided all inclusive hotel stays. As a tourist destination, he says, the Canary Islands have to offer all inclusive holidays, because if we don’t, the people who want them will go elsewhere. “The difference between all inclusive offers here and elsewhere though”, de la Puente argues, “is that we have such a diverse offer that people will find it really difficult to stay in their hotel. We have a leisure offer that is really integrated, so much so

that people will go out”, and spend money outside the resorts. However there is no room for complacency and the need for renovation and reinvention is paramount, with €35 million recently granted by Madrid to facilitate the former. Renovation and investment by the government in the main tourist destinations is hugely important, and “let’s not forget something that is fundamental and just as important, that is private investment”. The deputy minister underlines that there’s no point in the government, the Cabildos and the local councils, working in the streets to upgrade the zones if the hotels and restaurants don’t play their part. And on how any agreement signed by this administration will stand post-elections next year, he confirmed that any programmes that are agreed now by public institutions will continue to run, adding that his department continues to honour agreements entered into

by the previous Tourism minister Rita Martín, whose departure was caused by the recent rift between the former coalition partners, the Partido Popular and the Coalicion Canarias, which led to the latter currently ruling on their own. De la Puente’s years in the hotel sector give him an edge in professional negotiation with many of the relevant agencies, tour operators, airlines, etc as well as institutional bodies such as Cabildos and councils - a real advantage. He also says the regional government’s recent participation in the World Travel Market was very positive, and he took advantage of the visit to meet with many professional representatives, and outline the advantages the Canaries offer as a destination, with the added

value of reduced airport taxes, a real plus, something he says was roundly welcomed by the sector. “I do believe holidays are fundamental, for everyone, but it is true that people are taking shorter holidays, and have changed habits. But we have to adapt to the new holiday trends” he cautions. “Before we had a certain kind of client, today we have very different clients, we need to know what they want, what kind of holiday they are looking for, how are they getting here, how they are booking their holiday”.

ourism councillor Águeda Montelongo says the shots of the girls were taken on local beaches and in the sea, and sales of the 10-euro calendar will mean the island’s natural attractions will be a permanent fixture in tens of thousands of homes and offices during 2011.

R

yanair representative Daniel de Car valho, who attended the launch with Montelongo, said five calendars have been put on sale on every Ryanair flight in the coming period, thus guaranteeing visibility for the island among millions of passengers. The airline, which sold 3,000 calendars in the first few days, added that a You Tube video showing the fun side of the Fuerteventura shooting of the 2011 calendar, the proceeds from which will go to a German charity, drew over 100,000 hits in just one week.

Little urchins By Barbara Belt

G

omera’s Cabildo, in conjunction with local diving clubs, has launched a renewed attack on the large colony of long-spined sea urchins currently munching its way through sub-aquatic flora and fauna around the island’s coastline. The Diadema Antillarum, to give the urchin its proper name, is unfortunately now a wellestablished pest throughout the Canarian archipelago. All the seven island councils are increasingly concerned, after the traditional, doing-an-ostrich stance first adopted when marine ecologists sounded the alarm over a decade ago, about its presence and the dreadful implications for the future of coastal waters. No matter how

quickly these spiny creatures are cleared from the islands’ rock shelves and coasts, they reappear undaunted and in increased numbers nearby, and can quickly reestablish themselves. Signs of their presence throughout the Canaries are easy to see with just a cursory look at affected coastal areas: nothing alive, no algae, no plant life, no fish. The usual underwater diversity of plant life and small sea creatures has been replaced by a whitened, dead scenario inhabited only by our spiny friends. The exact reasons for their proliferation are still being fruitlessly argued, but one important aspect, unpopular and sensitive though it may be, is undoubtedly over-fishing. The usual spiral of ecological

Christmas forecast

Big spenders

C

anarians are tipped to be among the highest Christmas spenders in Spain this year, according to a nationwide sur vey. The study by consultants TNS found that people here expect to spend an average of €400 per head on presents, a figure which is above the national average and contradicts earlier pointers that the recession would be particularly noticeable in the islands. Top of the shopping list once again will be electronic devices, video games and mobile phones, which are expected to account for 31 per cent of all spending. The high spending prediction is good news for stores across the region, who are hoping for a decent festive period to save them from a bleak year. “Things look as if they are picking up after some very sluggish months. The takings over the coming weeks mark the dividing line between profit and loss for 2010” said Alvaro Rojas, chairman of the Asodiscan association, which represents the main distributors here.

malpractice is easy to plot here, just as its disastrous results are increasingly obvious. Canarian waters, in the past rich fishing grounds providing an abundant harvest of diverse species of fish, are very much impoverished as we close the

first decade of the twenty-first century. The elimination of tuna and other commonly occurring species from local waters has been relentlessly carried out for well over half a centur y now, with alarm bells ringing unheeded for two decades. The finger can be pointed in various directions. No one factor caused the decline, this has been the usual cocktail of ignorance and greed. From Japanese factory boats to undersea mega-noise pollution, from irresponsible small fishing practice to warming waters. All the factors are there, with this, and other, easily predictable, results-no biodiversity, dead coastal waters, no fish. The new attack on these pests, using volunteer divers organised by the Agriculture, Stock Keeping and Fisheries Department of the Cabildo, took place off a small section of the island’s coast at San Sebastián.

The court heard that he needed money quickly and decided to steal it from his friend and fellowKorean but went berserk when he realised the girl was at home and battered her to death before fleeing to

CabildoNews Reforestation

Green fingers Four hundred people were gathered together by the Cabildo on International Tree Day to plant seedling trees.



Reina Sofía airport

No second runway Spain’s transport minister has given his firmest indication yet that the prospect of a second runway for Tenerife South Airport is unreal at present. José Blanco visited the island recently to discuss investment issues with the regional and local authorities and used the oppor-

tunity to stifle any hopes that funding might be available for another runway. In an extensive interview in the Diario de Avisos newspaper, Blanco said that current passenger growth forecasts for Tenerife South, which is among the busiest in the country, “did not warrant serious consideration” of the possibility for the moment. The comments have been

criticised widely, not least because it was widely understood in political circles that a second runway figured among Madrid’s infrastructure priorities for the Canaries for the coming years. Moreover, consultations on the environmental impact of the runway have already been held, including in Brussels. Not everyone is in favour of

the project, however. Back in April, the United Left party in Tenerife said the plans were a “waste of public money”. Spokesman Ramón Trujillo added, “Tenerife South has eight million passengers a year and the authorities are urging Madrid to fund a second runway. London Gatwick has 35 million passengers and gets by with just a single one”.

La Orotava was planted with 500 new trees

The workers on the day were coordinated by the volunteers department of the island council and comprised of members of the Canarian forest engineers school, Spanish Red Cross, Scouts, CajaCanarias, the parent teachers association from La Victoria, Anaga emergencies (AEA), international relations association from La Laguna University, the in La Orotava council, union members from C.C.O.O., workers from the Hotel Tigaiga and personnel from the environment department of the Cabildo. Five hundred laurel forest species tree seedlings were planted, including the Small Leaved Holly, Faya Bayberry and the local bay trees. Once established the trees will help to minimise the erosion processes as well as improving the view and helping to preserve the biodiversity of the island.

Hiking

Walk the walk Members of the European Ramblers Association walked part of the new long GR 131 route which is being prepared by the Cabildo. The route crosses 11 of the island’s 31 boroughs and the council’s invitation to the group was to show them the quality and variety of the walks on the island and as the tourism councillor, José Manuel Bermúdez, commented, so that they would, “recommend them to their over three million members”. The stretch chosen by the council to show to the association members passes through the lunar landscape in Granadilla de Abona, which is usually accessed from Vilaflor. The GR131 route will form part of the European route E7 and the councillor took the opportunity to remind those present that, “Tenerife is a real paradise for this activity as it has thousands of kilometres of standardised routes, or routes which are in the process of improvements to bring them up to standard”.

enerife once again has hosted a meeting of the management committee of the ACE (Africa Coast Europe), which oversees the laying of the underwater cable which will run from France to South Africa and will have a connection point in Tenerife. Cabildo president, Ricardo Melchior and the insular councillor for economy and competitiveness, Carlos Alonso, showed members of the consortium around the NAP (Neutral Access Point to the worldwide web), currently under construction in Granadilla. The NAP is expected to be operative by early 2011 and the project has attracted plenty of interest from a host of telecoms and IT operators who are keen to set up in West Africa but from a base within the European Union. Carlos Alonso says that “being included in the plans of the ACE and other underwater systems which are being laid such as the WACS (West Africa Cable System) or Canalink, both of which will include Tenerife on their routes, is making the island an important strategic focal point in the race to open up the telecommunications market

ACE report between Africa, Europe and the Americas.“ During their visit ACE committee members expressed a keen interest in learning all about the NAP as a key hub for the concentration and distribution of international connectivity as well as its role as a data centre for local ICT companies wishing to compete abroad. Ricardo Melchior showed them the works which are progressing very well. The NAP building houses a set of infrastructures such as electrical systems, air conditioning, safety features etc. which have been specially designed to host the electronic systems required by ICT companies so they can carry out all or part of their business with the maximum guarantees: environmental, power supply, security and resistant to unfavourable weather conditions. ACE currently has 22 link up points: France, Portugal, Tenerife, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone,

The ACE system is seen as a key factor in kick starting the social and economic development of West Africa. One of the major investors in the consortium is the American company BahariCom who, in association with the CanaLink company, will supply the invest-

ment needed to enable the ACE to link up to the NAP in Tenerife. Given the importance of the NAPWACI as the centre for the concentration and distribution of connectivity for three continents from the West African coast, as well as its neutrality policy and open access for all operators, BahariCom views it as an enormously useful point from which African traffic can be channeled towards North and South America and also to European networks..

Doing business

Card cloner

Tenerife has secured a major conference coup with the news that next year’s prestigious International Partnerships Conference: Doing Business with Africa is to be held on the island.

A Tenerife shop assistant has been arrested in connection with a massive credit card fraud operation believed to have netted over €40,000.

African confer- Credit card ence coup scam arrest Usually organised in Washington, the annual event, which brings together parties from the public and private sector interested in investment in Africa, moves outside the United States for the first time ever. Ricardo Melchior, president of the local Cabildo, says the decision to ask Tenerife to host the conference is formal recognition of the island’s potential role as an investment platform for international business in Africa. Upwards of 500 business leaders from the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas are expected to attend the conference, preparations for which are already under way. It is hoped that the three-day event, scheduled for the end of March 2011, will be followed immediately by a series of trade missions to several African countries.

The arrest was made after a two-month investigation into complaints by more than 100 card holders earlier this year that their cards had been debited for non-existent purchases abroad. A common denominator among the victims was that they had used their cards in the same shopping centre in Santa Cruz. Police eventually matched the sales to a specific assistant who was found to have a concealed microdevice which she used to swipe the cards a second time to make the clones subsequently used for other purchases. Detectives say the assistant passed on the details to an accomplice and was probably part of a professional racket. She admitted the offences and was remanded to Tenerife II prison pending trial. The case has led to fresh warnings to credit card users not to let their cards out of their sight during transactions.

I

sla de Hielo is the name of the Santa Cruz council’s plans for the festive season. The main measure is to convert the lake in the centre of the Plaza de España into an ice rink for Christmas.

The rink, which will have a capacity for some 80 people, will be open to the public every day from 10am to midnight non-stop, including fiestas, from December 5th until January 10th. If you don’t want to skate, there

will be seating where you can just sit and watch all the winter activity. It is hoped that this ice rink, which will occupy 600 square metres and be filled with ice eight to ten centimetres deep, will attract thousands of visitors to the capital during the festivities, thus benefitting local businesses. Other initiatives are planned too, including a tourist bus which will take visitors on a tour of the capital during January. To date, four companies have offered to run the service.

Fatal fall

Lone walker killed in Masca The perils of the hills around Masca have once again been highlighted by a tragic accident, this time the death of a man in his 30s who was killed in a horrific fall as he hiked alone in the area. The body of the man was sighted by a Civil Guard helicopter on routine patrol of the cliffs around Masca. It is believed he fell 200 metres to his death from a narrow trail along the top of the area’s famous but notorious ravine, but his disappearance went unnoticed because he was on his own. Police later found his car parked at the roadside a short distance away. The recovered body was flown to a beach in Los Silos, where the local coroner inspected it before ordering its removal.

Travel warning

Guía de Isora

American nightmare T

here can be no sadder voyage than to journey to the side of a son or daughter who is dying and when that voyage is complicated by travel problems, the sadness becomes a nightmare. Playa de San Juan residents Maureen and Ian Burnley, both in their 70s flew out to the USA this summer. Their 43 year old son had been diagnosed with a terminal cancer and they were told he had only four weeks to live. It was a priority for them to go over there to be with him for the rest of his life. At the travel agents in Playa San Juan, they explained the situation and asked about flights to the USA. They were told that there were direct flights to Miami with Air Europa on Saturdays and that if they booked an open ticket it would cost €2,500, a month return would cost them €1,500 and if they had to overstay they would have to pay a penalty of around €100. Bearing in mind that they would have to pay for a hotel stay in Miami and then fly to Houston at a cost of over $400, the higher priced ticket would have meant it was cheaper to fly via the UK. The couple flew out, meeting their daughter there and facing their personal tragedy and the mountain of bureaucracy

More nurseries Guía de Isora is the tinerfeñan borough with more nursery places per 100 residents in the island according to a recent study by the Canarian boroughs’ federation, Fecam. With the recent opening of the Escuela Infantil de Alcalá, Guía now offers 190 places for preschoolers, 0.93 for every 100 residents. The new facility in Alcalá is open 11 months a year from 7am to 5pm (8pm for working parents).

Cash for tunnel Funds have now been allocated for the second part of the El Bicho tunnel within the island ring road project. Original plans only allowed for a one tube tunnel, but there is now to be a twin tube so that there will be two lanes in either direction. The total cost of the works is estimated at over €35 million. The idea apparently is to reduce the environmental impact of the initial tunnel plan and to improve safety. The section of the ring road between Armeñime and Santiago del Teide will cut the distance from 26 kilometres to 20 and increase the average travelling speed from 40 kph to 100. The Burnleys had a travel nightmare

it entailed. When it became obvious that they would have to extend their stay, their daughter contacted the Air Europa staff in the USA. She was informed that there was a penalty of $115, but that an extra fare payment of $633 would also apply. Maureen also contacted them and asked them to reconsider on humanitarian grounds and was apparently told that irrespective of the proof they could give from the medical staff and hospital, if they didn’t take the flight they were booked on, the couple would owe the airline

Their daughter changed her flight with British Airways three times, with no penalty. We checked with the travel agents and they told us that the information they gave the couple was, “word for word” what they had been told by Air Europa’s Spanish office.

The Partido Popular chose Callao Salvaje as the starting point for their information campaign urging foreign residents to register and vote in next year’s local elections. According to the numbers, 23,000 of Adeje’s 44,000 residents are foreign – 52 per cent, “proving the importance of the foreign community in our borough”, said PP local councillor Andrés Montiel. According to the party, and as reported here in the past, many residents of Callao Salvaje are fed up with the state of the village resort, with the lack of municipal cleaning, poor child-friendly facilities (there is only one unshaded park with a slide and two swings) and a general sense of abandonment. The council’s response to these complaints has been that they are powerless to do anything until the private developers in the area comply with all the requirements needed before Adeje council can assume full responsibility for the zone. However good news for residents may be in the offing, that the latest date for the commencement of work on the beach is now December 13th. However there won’t be a lot of breath holding in Callao Salvaje, too many long term residents having lived through many promised dates in the past.

Switzerland to tax UK owner bank accounts By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

T

ax evasion stories concerning bank accounts in Switzerland are coming at a fast rate – a clear sign that hiding money in Switzerland is an increasingly risky pursuit. Now the UK government has brokered a deal to start negotiations with the Swiss authorities to tax all UK residents holding Swiss bank accounts. Germany is in similar discussions and other European countries could follow suit. This may be a good time to review your savings to ascertain if you can use legitimate arrangements in Spain to lower your tax obligations. The Swiss and UK finance ministers agreed to begin negotiations and a declaration was signed on 25th October. Talks will start in early 2011 on the precise terms of the agreement, under which Swiss banks will tax at source the interest they pay to British clients and the

revenue passed on to the UK Exchequer. Details of this withholding tax will be negotiated next year. It is expected to be similar to the rates set in the depositor’s home country. There will also be some form of extra levy on holdings which have been held for many years without being taxed, including inherited accounts, so that they can be “regularised“. There are questions on how a withholding tax would sit alongside the existing European Savings Tax Directive (STD). Its withholding tax rate is 20 per cent but rises to 35 per cent in July 2011. A withholding tax between Switzerland and the UK would have to be broader in scope. Swiss banks have proposed a tax on the interest, dividends, capital gains and investment income earned by foreign citizens with offshore accounts. As part of the new agreement the Swiss government has agreed to provide “extended administrative assistance” to prevent anyone circumventing the withholding tax and enable the UK authorities to submit a

tax will not be deducted twice, though the new tax could well be higher than that applied under the STD. Tax planning is becoming an ever increasing minefield, but you can remove the worry and the risks through the use of available legitimate vehicles which can help residents of Spain to mitigate their worldwide tax liabilities. Consult an international tax and wealth management professional like Blevins Franks for advice on the structures most suited to your personal circumstances.

request for assistance by only providing the client’s name - the Swiss authorities will then trace the account and provide details. While Switzerland insists that the “fishing expeditions“ will not be allowed and requests should be “limited“ and “well founded“, the agreement goes further than the OECD informa-

tion exchange protocol which requires any request to include the name of the bank. Following the agreements with the UK and Germany, the Chairman of the Swiss Bankers Association, Patrick Odier, said they may set a precedent. “It may very well be the case that

some other countries may be interested and attracted to what now seems to be an agreeable solution for at least two major countries in Europe.” Once the negotiations are concluded we will find out how this new withholding tax fits in with that applied under the STD – presumably (hopefully!)

T h e O rg a n i s at i o n fo r Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), has announced that they believe the Spanish Gross National Product will drop by 0.2 per cent this year but by the end of 2011 is expected to be increased by 0.9 per cent.

T

he forecast is better than expected for 2010, but not as good for 2011. However the Spanish economy is expected to accelerate in 2012.

Pension risks The EU have warned that putting back the age when you can claim your pension in Spain is not enough to guarantee the sustainability of the pensions system. Somewhat unfairly the leading politicians of today are taking the blame for a pensions situation in Europe that needed regulating a long time ago. Fewer births, less workers needed with new technology and longer lifetimes thanks to improvements in health care mean that we are living with an inverted pyramid in social care. Fewer people are paying for more pensions and that means we have to pay more or receive less. Politics aside, it’s pure mathematics. It has fallen to the politicians of today to sort out a situation that could and should have been foreseen from a long time ago, after all what are demographic studies for? However from lack of foresight or political cowardice nothing has been done until now. We all complain, but few can refute the necessity of the measures now in place or underway in the UK, Ireland, Holland, German, France, Italy and Spain. However, the European Union has warned that in Spain the much criticised measures have not gone far enough and that the system will become unbalanced by 2030 unless something else is done. Spain is the second country in the world for longevity and the number of pensioners will double between now and 2040. The EU believes that it is necessary therefore that there is a further labour reform to increase the number of years that the people work, especially the country’s youth.

C.C.C.

Ale fellow well met By Sheila Collis

W

ith all the brouhaha over the admittedly excellent island wines, it’s sometimes easy to forget that other drinks are produced here. A tinerfeñan company now makes its own cider and of course the Canarian Company, C.C.C., has two breweries in the Canaries, producing beers which are recognised for their excellence at international level. The Tenerife brewery company was first formed in 1939, fifteen years after its Gran Canarian counterpart, although due to national and international strife, they couldn’t produce their first beer until 1948. The C.C.C. company uniting them both was established in 1994 and now forms part of an international group which enables it to offer a wider and more attractive portfolio to its clients. We spoke to the CEO, Mark Tindall who informed us that each of the products they have has its own marketing plan for the year to decide who it is aimed at, in which areas and how. The Tropical beer they produce is more popular in Gran Canaria and has a slightly younger and somewhat quirky image, always being very careful about not targeting an underage audience. Dorada is equally popular across both the provinces and aimed at a slightly older clientele. The latest marketing plan aims to show that Dorada can always add something to your life, to complement your social and celebratory occasions.

Dorada is an extraordinarily high quality beer with an excellent price-to-value ratio, brewed to German standards with 100 per cent malt, water, hops and yeast. In this year’s Monde awards in Belgium, one of the sector’s most internationally renowned recognition for beers, Dorada Especial and Pilsen beers both took gold awards and Dorada Sin (the non alcohol option) received silver. In addition to these two local mainstream beers, C.C.C. also produces or markets, Pilsner Urquell (the first blonde beer ever brewed), Miller, Carlsberg, Peroni, Guinness, Kilkenny, Red Bull, Appletiser and Granini juices. C.C.C. believe that the market is becoming increasingly fragmented which is where their portfolio with its wide appeal comes into its own. As Mark affirmed, “we have a great portfolio and something to offer every consumer”. Guinness and Kilkenny have their own loyal drinkers, the Pilsner Urquell tends to attract the Germans and an older more discerning beer drinker, the Miller brand is internationally appreciated, Carlsberg has a strong following among the Northern Europeans and Peroni is attracting trendy and especially female fans for its designer image as well as its flavour, a crisp easy drinking beer with effortless Italian style. They are a forward looking

company with a young image enhanced by their use of social networks such as Facebook where their site is very popular. “It also lets you see immediately whether or not the consumer likes what you are doing” and fine tune your marketing accordingly Mark commented. Sales of non-alcoholic drinks have increased over the last few years, but Mark puts this down more to the range of alternatives that are now avail-

able and a move to healthier lifestyles than drink driving crackdowns. Dorada Sin is the beer choice of many who are returning to work, or going on to take part in sport after a beer at lunchtime for example and Appletiser with its 100 per cent purity and no additives is increasingly popular as a healthy lifestyle choice. However Mark underlined that drinking beer in moderation is not inconsistent with a health lifestyle.

As a company they actively support responsible consumption campaigns, from globally at World Health Organisation levels, to giving away free non-alcoholic drinks to drivers at some of the events they help to sponsor. They are also heavily involved in sustainable development programmes to optimise natural resource use, recycle and restrict residues as well as local social responsibility programmes from formal aid to educational, cultural and sports projects, support of charities and tourism initiatives, and donations to food banks. In their last financial year they reinvested 15 per cent of their operating profit, €2.8 million, to these projects. “It’s the right thing to do and motivational for our staff.” A further €40 million was invested in the Islands’ economy by direct purchases made by the company here. They source as much of their needs as they can locally. The industry as a whole is working to emphasise that beer is suitable for a large number of consumption occasions, for example as an

excellent accompaniment to a meal. “Beer plays a clear and valuable role in society and enhances peoples’ lives,” Mark observed. The increased choice and variety on the market is extending the demand from the clientele and attracting more and more people which is where the necessity of a range of quality products in the portfolio becomes increasingly important. Mark proudly claims they have, “something there for everybody, which at a corporate level makes us an

The objective is that from January, doctors will have to prescribe the exact amount of medication needed for a patient to complete a course of

Dear Norman, Although many conditions can cause burning feet, diabetes is the most common. A burning sensation in the feet may be caused by nerve damage in the legs, also called neuropathy. Damaged nerve fibres are more likely to become overactive and misfire. The damaged nerves send inappropriate pain signals to the brain, although you might not see any external lesion (no wound or injury). Peripheral artery disease (PAD) also commonly causes burning feet. The poor circulation of blood to the feet may frequently cause pain, tingling, and burning feet, especially while walking. Your GP should be able to rule out this condition easily. The most important treatment for burning feet due to neuropathy is to prevent further nerve damage and reducing pain. For people with diabetic neuropathy, this means a combination of dietar y changes, or thopaedic measures, some medications and lifestyle changes. Burning feet treatments also include treating the pain and abnormal sensations created by neuropathy. There is a wide arsenal of painkillers depending on the severity and degree of incapacity ranging from over-the-counter to prescription pain relievers. Besides asking your GP, advice from a foot consultant may be helpful especially if you have an active lifestyle.

treatment, a measure which Pajín calculates will save the government in the region of €300 million a year. Controlling pharmaceutical costs should not only help health service coffers, but save patients a substantial amount of money too as they will only have to pay for the exact amount prescribed rather than larger packs of, for example, tablets, simply because that is the only pack size that they are supplied in. In some cases, this will force pharmaceutical companies to change the format in which they package their products. The other positive effect is that there will be an end to bathroom cabinets throughout the country being filled with half empty pill bottles. Additionally, during December, there will be an initiative to promote ‘generic’ drugs which will be accompanied by an information leaflet for the public.

on quickly and lasts about five-10 days. Check with your doctor if your symptoms last more than two to three weeks and you smoke since your laryngitis may be caused by more severe problems. Laryngitis can be caused by colds or flu (most common cause); reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); overuse of your voice, such as singing nightly, and irritation from allergies, air conditioning or smoke. Acid reflux is the most common cause of chronic lar yngitis. But chronic laryngitis may be caused by more severe problems such as ner ve damage, sores, polyps, or hard and thick lumps (nodules) on your vocal cords. The vocal cords are the elastic bands inside the larynx that produce your voice. Some hoarseness may occur naturally with age as your vocal cords loosen and grow thinner. The main symptom of laryngitis is hoarseness. Your voice may sound raspy, be deeper than normal, or break now and then. You may lose your voice completely. Other symptoms may include a dr y or sore throat, coughing, and trouble swallowing. With most cases of laryngitis, home treatment is all that you need. Try to rest your voice, add moisture to the air in your home with a humidifier or vaporiser, and drink plenty of fluids. Tr y some tea with lemon and honey. Avoid smoking. Use a mouth wash several times per day. An over-the-counter anti-inflammatory may reduce the inflammation and alleviate the pain. Chronic lar yngitis may need more treatment. If you keep getting laryngitis because of a problem with the way you talk or sing, you may need speech training. A few sessions may help you learn to improve your singing technique as well as using more effective breathing techniques. Best wishes!

Miracle cure denounced  he organisation Facua-Consumidores en Acción, has T denounced (via the national consumers institute, the ministry for Health and Canarian Government amongst oth-

ers), a company based in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria which claims to have a ‘miracle cure’ based on magnetism for Aids, cancer and a long list of other conditions.

The company, Nodacom, sells its Magnetika products in Mexico, the US and Spain through its website www.terapiamagnetica.com where it assures that its products have been able to cure patients with problems including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Aids and some cases of terminal cancer, and even goes to the extreme not only of recommending that patients stop taking medication prescribed by their doctors, but that these drugs could have serious repercussions.

Condom remarks pain’s bishops have rushed to clarify the media headS lines regarding the papal stance on condoms following publication of Pope Benedict XVI’s comments in the new book, Light of the World, that condoms can be justified to prevent the spread of HIV.

While there was silence from many religious quarters around the world, and more than some confusion among devout Catholics, Spanish bishops said that as far as they were concerned nothing had changed. The Catholic News Agency quoted the secretary general of the Spanish Bishops’ Conference as saying that, in fact, the Pope’s comments do not legitimise the use of condoms. At the conclusion of the Spanish bishops’ 96th plenary assembly, Bishop Juan Antonio Martinez Camino said that the use of condoms “always” takes place “within a context of immorality.” Thus, he continued, it “can never be recommended.”

Breath-taking!

COLD

The Hospital Universitario de Gran Canaria Dr Negrín recently marked World COLD day with patients who suffer from this ailment.

Patients were instructed in the correct use of inhalers

Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (also known as Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disease, COPD among other labels) refers to patients who are suffering from a combination of chronic bronchitis and emphysema, coexisting diseases of the lungs in which the airways become narrowed, which in turn leads to a limitation of the flow of air to and from the lungs, leading to shortness of breath. November 17th was the day in question and in the hospital in Gran Canaria there was a scheduled activity in the breathing clinic demonstrating the correct usage of nebulizers and inhalers – up to 50 per cent of patients who suffer from COLD don’t use their inhalers correctly. The clinic, which opened last May, is for out-patients and their families, and more than 50 sufferers took part in the demonstration held on that day. The international day of events was also used to increase awareness of COLD, leading to, hopefully, greater understanding and treatment for sufferers. Generally this is considered a progressive and non-treatable condition, with smoking one of the main causes leading to a reduction in the breathing capacity of the patient, worsening over time. According to the World Health Organisation there are over 120 million persons suffering from the condition, and it is calculated that in 20 years it will become the third largest killer on a global scale.

pros and cons

Anabolic steroids in sports T

 he questions that have been asked recently by some of our new recruits are “where can I get anabolic steroids?” or “how big can I become in four weeks?” So once again I find myself writing an article about the ‘other side’ of sport.

What are anabolic steroids and what are they for? The important part to understand is that we are talking about anabolic steroids. ‘Anabolic steroids’ is the familiar name for synthetic substances related to the male sex hormones, for example testosterone. They promote the growth of skeletal muscle (anabolic effects) and the development of male sexual characteristics (androgenic effects) in both males and females. Steroids in general are found to be very useful in medicine for several reasons - as an anti-inflammatory, bone structure enhancement and they help people who suffer from anaemia. Anabolic steroids are also used if somebody has problems with their own testosterone production to maintain their secondary sexual characteristics or if somebody has huge muscle loss after surgery, in other words, in certain circumstances they have their uses.

In the highest level of professional sports everybody dopes. There may be some exceptions but the majority use either AS (Anabolic Steroids) or other performance or regeneration enhancing products. This is not limited to the world of bodybuilding where you obviously can see the use of steroids in the form of massive muscles. I remember the Tour de France a few years ago when they found out about blooddoping in some of the athletes. The world was shocked. I wasn’t! If you really believe that every year someone is born who will sprint the 100 metres quicker than the year before just because of training you’re living in a cloud; it’s not possible! We have genetic limits and professionals take ‘products’ to surpass these limits. Each of them has his own trainer, and besides, a physiotherapist, masseuse as well as a physician. So whatever they do, they do it under professional supervision to minimise the side effects and maximise the benefits. Never forget, these athletes work their butts off and train up to three times a day. So, bearing super athlete with his team around him in mind, let’s look at the gym ‘newbie’! This guy has just started training. He moves the dumbbell the first time. That means if he trains on a regular basis he will have success without even thinking about enhancing prod-

ucts, but there is the problem. The people who have no discipline or patience are the same ones who want to see the results they have been promised on the TV or on the cover of some magazine. I have news for them, they can not put on 20 kilos of body fat in six weeks and they certainly can’t get rid of it that quickly either, or at least without putting heart and body at risk. The interesting thing is that anabolic steroids will not help you to build huge muscles if you do not train hard, something they don’t say in the commercials! One of the reasons that the professionals can deal with using drugs is because they surround themselves with professionals, so when it comes to the side effects they are more prepared and accept the price they are paying for achieving their goals ‘abnormally’. Remember we are talking about hormones – all

Anabolic steroids will not help you to build huge muscles if you do not train hard hormones have an effect on your mood and sensivity, so getting angry or depressed for no apparent reason is normal! In men it is no joke that steroid use can lead to infertility, breast development, shrinking of the reproductive organ and penis and also premature balding, nice! In women there is the enlargement of the sexual organ, excessive growth of body hair and also male-pattern baldness to look forward to. For both, steriods affect the musculoskeletal system and can cause tendon rupture through fast muscle growth, never mind the risks

of hepatitis and HIV from ‘buddies’ sharing. Then we can talk about the cardiovascular system, high blood pressure, heightened risk of heart attack, increase of bad cholesterol and decrease in the good. The liver can develop tumours, cancers and suffer peliosis hepatis. The skin suffers too with acne and cysts, oily scalp, jaundice and fluid retention. So after all that a little mania, heightened aggression and delusional psychosis does not seem so bad! I hope that little introduction to anabolic steroids makes it easier to make an educated choice of the benefits of building muscle with less work against the side effects. Like I say, in professional sport it would be impossible to ignore them but I am not the professional you want to help you if you choose to go in that direction.

Next issue we will discover what’s on your plate at Christmas that helps you the most in consuming all that excess alcohol at this time of year.

hicago, the musical, comes to the Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz on December 26th. Assassinations, jealousy, corruption, adultery and treachery – they’re all in Chicago, one of the most spectacular musicals of our time which has spent 13 years on Broadway and London’s West End. Written by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, with music by John Kander and Fred Ebb’s own lyrics, it has been seen by more than 17 million people all over the world and has broken all ticket sales records in Madrid since its premiere in 2009. No

wonder, with songs like All That Jazz, When You’re Good to Mama, Razzle Dazzle and Cell Block Tango! In Tenerife there will be 11 shows from December 26 to January 2 at various times in the evenings, and then Chicago will continue its tour, moving on to Las Palmas with performances from January 6th to 21st. Tickets, from €30 to €50, are on sale now, for more information call 902 317 327 or visit www.auditoriodetenerife. com “Live as if you’re gonna die tomorrow, work as if you don’t need the money, dance as if no-one is watching”.

ocal singing star Barbara Law, who has lived in Tenerife for the past 24 years, was delighted to receive a phone call from her friend and UK comedy legend Ken Dodd, asking her to play some theatre dates with him in December in the UK, especially as one of them is in her home town o f Wa r rington.

The venue for the Warrington concert on December 10th is the Parr Hall and as Barbara sang there at the beginning of her career, it will bring back a lot of memories. She can’t wait and told Island Connections that she is really looking forward to working with Ken once again. Barbara worked with Ken on TV, radio and in theatre shows during the 1960s and 70s and one particular summer season show at the Opera House, Blackpool, broke all box office records, being extended to run for 24 weeks.

Agility trials

Blitz is best B

elgian Shepherd Malinois Blitz and owner Claire McIntre of La Mareta, Tenerife are not just pretty faces.

They recently took second place in the Canary Island Championships for Dog Agility in the Advanced Section narrowly missing the top slot by just one point. Dog Agility trials are popular in mainland Spain and are now taking off here - there are different classes from beginners to advanced and the competition is open to all. Dozens of dogs and their handlers, both British and Spanish, compete in the competition which takes place over several months and includes two shows each in Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma. Claire has owned

seven year old Blitz since she was a puppy and in 2005, she won best bitch of her breed at the world famous Crufts dog

the popular Gourmet range. There are always promotions at Koala Sur, as they buy in volume, direct from the suppliers. If you want to buy treats for your canine friend, try a selection from their dispensers – fill one of three sizes of container with either one type of treat or a mixture, a bit like pick and mix, doggy style. They are of the same quality as the vacuum packed varieties, and give your dog the opportunity to try something new for a change. Koala Sur has a magnificent aquarium display, and the one at Guargacho is brand new for the beginning of December.

They have fish, food and everything else you will need for your aquarium including ornaments. If you can’t see the fish that you would like, they can be obtained for you within two weeks. If you have any problems with your home aquarium, Koala Sur also offer a service where an assessor can visit your home and offer you advice and a solution. As Koala Sur have an inhouse veterinary service, they can also dispense your pet’s prescriptions and they stock prescription diets and all the most popular flea and worm treatments. Transport cages are available in all models and sizes, all fully approved for

show in the UK. Preferring agility trials to dog showing, Blitz then went on to win nine trophies in the UK and a further nine in the Canaries when Claire moved to Tenerife to set up her dog grooming business - she is a keen supporter of the Live Arico Animal Rescue Home and donates 10 per cent of her grooming fees to

the charity. “Blitz is a real softie at home,” says Claire, “but she absolutely loves the agility trials and is a different dog when she’s in the ring - she works very hard and is totally focused. We’re both looking forward to next year’s competition, it’s a great way to keep fit and have fun at the same time!”

as you decide what to buy from the well stocked store-rooms. When it comes to cheese Gerardo is quite passionate and will insist that his clients

Prestigio & Tradición are holding two open days in their shop/club/saloon in Las Zocas on December 10th and 11th and if this is to be your first visit, prepare yourself for a very sensual treat indeed. This is no ordinary shop, this is, in fact, a club which specialises in supplying the very best produce, imported exclusively by them, direct from the farms, bodegas and specialist kitchens of great gastronomic sites in the Canary Islands, Spain and beyond with no middlemen, and in fact nowadays owner, Gerardo, sells on to smaller outlets here too. Gerardo spends months every year travelling around the world looking for small producers who can guarantee quality and gathering together the very best selection for his

and wine doesn’t have to be at ridiculous prices. It’s almost impossible to know where to begin to list the mouth-watering selection of produce on offer, and as Gerardo is constantly updating his stock, a better idea, once you’ve read this, is to simply go and see and taste for yourself. On a recent visit Gerardo showed us the new range of chocolates he is selling – Valrhona, exceedingly tantalising – from France, and staying in that country, he also stocks top class pâtés and terrines and much more from La Table D’Antan. Try out the terrific new range of Gourmet Cooking Sauces (Thai, Mexican, Cajun, Indian, Moroccan…), as well as the very excellent range from Cottage Delight. The latter includes jams, chutneys, clotted cream, sauces and

lection of meats, including the full Ibérica range, some superb cold cuts, such as peppered wild boar, venison with mushrooms and all the specialities that Catalonia is so well known for; fuet, longaniza, butifarra and brawn. Smaller game like quails and par tridge are also available as are hand-made pâtés of all imaginable flavours, and this can all be enjoyed with a glass of wine

at least smell the selection of unpasteurised cheese he has in the fridge, and take my word for it, one whiff and you’ll forget all you ever said about Spanish cheeses being bland and boring. Gerardo’s mission is to re-introduce the public to Spanish cheeses in all their delicious glory, and he will succeed, believe me. We are talking real cheese here, crumbly moist handmade cheese that has absolutely nothing to do with the kind of plasticised excuse for cheese you may have been served elsewhere. All this with the best in organic crackers and biscuits - Mmmmmmm! Over to liquids and Gerardo now stocks the best in vinegar and olive oils, including La Maja, recently selected as Spain’s best. And then there are the wines. Gerardo has a top class selection of the

best wines from Europe, with award winning labels from the Canary Islands and the rest of Spain to the fore. Bodegas from the island represented include Aponte, San Miguel and Frontos. He stocks wines and labels from Spain that you are unlikely to find elsewhere, as they are from small bodegas, and are wines made with all the care and attention to the craft that the wine deserves. This is a place that will become a regular haunt of yours once you have succumbed to its delights. And coming up to Christmas Gerardo is also working on a range of personalised Christmas hampers, starting at

Honey

Buzz prizes

Chefs’ tips

Non-stick pans

T

he regional honey prize for this year was won by Ángel Alcalde with a fennel honey.

The prize is regional but awarded by the Tenerife Cabildo and the judges met this year in the Hotel Botánico in Puerto de la Cruz. Ninety different honeys were entered in the competition this year, 58 from Tenerife, 24 from La Palma, three each from El Hierro and La Gomera and two from Gran Canaria.

To make the most of your non-stick pans season them with coarse sea salt before use or when they start to stick a little.

The winning honey is produced under the trade name Taburiente de Garafía in La Palma and the multi-flower and liquid mountain best honey prizes were also won by La Palma beekeepers, Angeles Martín and Guillermo Hernández respectively. Best crystallised mountain honey award went to Dulce María Hernández from Arona jointly with Francisco González from La Laguna and the best liquid honey from the heights (cumbre) went to José Antonio Álvarez from Guía de Isora. Single flower prizes went to Ángel Alcalde’s fennel honey, tajinaste honey brought an award to Florencio Gutiérrez in El Hierro, a tedera honey to Isidro Días from La Palma and sweet chestnut honey a prize for María de los Angeles Estévez of Tenerife.

Cruise customers

Capital wine tasting I

n the middle of November, making the most of the fact that around10,000 cruise passengers were due into the capital, the Cabildo’s Tenerife Rural foundation set up promotional stands for the island’s wines in the Plaza de la Candelaria.

Non-stickware will last better and remain non-stick a lot longer if you prepare it first with sea salt. Fill the new or problem pan with coarse sea salt (less tha €1 a bag) and leave on a low heat until the salt is forming a crust. Let it cool down on its own and rinse. Never wash or wet non-stickware when it is still hot. Leave it to cool down completely and then wash. If you have any tips you would like to share with us please write to our editor at the addresses on page 2.

Tasting event

Top chef, Braulio Simancas, of the Gran Hotel Bahía del Duque restaurant Las Aguas, has created an exquisite tasting menu inspired by the ingredients which most represent the main regions of Tenerife. This wonderful menu, accompanied by local wines, can be enjoyed during an event called ‘sies lugares de nuestra isla, seis sabores’ (six regions of our island, six flavours) which takes place on the weekend of December 4 and 5. The areas represented will be Guia de Isora, Santiago del Teide, Güímar, Arico, TacoronteAcentejo and Isla Baja.

The bodegas gave free tastings of their wines and bottles were on sale for those who wished. Other products which Tenerife Rural also helps to market, honeys, mojos, jams and bananas were also on offer. A typical musical group got the tourists dancing and a bilingual guide in regional costume was on hand if needed, but her linguistic skills were in second place on the day as numerous tourists queued up to take a photograph with her.

El Mocanero

New wine

Now that all the relevant quality controls have been passed, El Maceración Carbónica of El Mocanero bodegas is now on the market for the first time.

Cabildo promotions

An apple a day

The wine was presented in the vinoteca La Reserva during the November wine festivities. The oenologist for the bodega, Ángel Díaz, said of the wine, “it’s a special wine made from grapes produced in the low lying areas of the region, harvested in the first week of September and for the particular way the juice is extracted it gives wines which are very lively with a high intensity of aroma, enjoyable and ideal to drink very chilled at this time of the year.

T

he first Reineta apple competition and promotion in El Sauzal ended with prizes for the Casa del Vino, Jalea de Menta and La Vara.

Part of the Tenerife gastronomy and borough promotion series which has seen competitions with the sweet potato in Tegueste and garlic in Santiago del Teide, the El Sauzal choice of product went to a local variety of apple, the Reineta. A series of special dishes were available all over in the borough’s bars and restaurants to boost tourism and make more use of the locally produced apples. The winner was the Casa del Vino with a salad of grilled giant prawns over a Reineta apple and rucula tatín, second prize to Jalea de Menta for an avocado shell with Reineta apple, Guayonge onion, watercress shoots and a dried fruit and nut vinaigrette with roast suckling pig stuffed with Reineta apple and third prize was awarded to La Vara for Iberian fillet steak with caramelised Reineta apple and foie gras.

Litter louts Dear Editor

I

was so disgusted and shocked by the behaviour of a BMW occupant the other day that I had to write to you about it. Driving from the Adeje roundabout towards Callao Salvaje – in fact the grey/silver four door BMW continued on in the Playa San Juan direction - at about 5pm my attention was caught by a piece of paper fluttering out of the back window just as we passed Armeñime. OK, one piece of paper, not nice, it looked like it was being thrown by a young child in the back seat, so that’s a reprimand. It wouldn’t have been so back if that was it, but between Tenerife Pearl and the Repsol garage five more pieces of paper were thrown out of the car, and from where I was driving it was

being done as a fun game, the back seat occupant fluttering the paper before throwing it, and by the body language I could observe, the driver, and I assume the adult in control, didn’t care a jot. So I’m a moaner, but I do think the island is worth keeping clean, I do my bit recycling (not as much as I should) and I teach my kids about littering. What help is it then when someone in a well heeled car, if you know what I mean, obviously doesn’t give a damn and would rather have the offending rubbish on Tenerife’s streets rather than in their posh car.

She was born in Edgebaston in 1928, and was one of 16 children. At a very early age she got the show business bug, and attended the nationally famous Betty Fox Babes theatrical school, where she learned how to sing, play the piano, took ballet and tap dancing lessons, acted in musical comedy and especially learned how to perform as a contortionist. With such a varied amount of talents, she was in great demand. Some of you may remember a comedian called Billy Dainty; he attended the same classes as Doreen, although was often in trouble for playing the fool, yet made a very successful TV and radio career from doing just that. In 1940, aged just 12 years, she performed in Aladdin at the Prince of Wales theatre in Birmingham, which later was sadly bombed. Jesse Mathews played the lead, and later became better known as Mrs. Dale, in Mrs. Dale’s diary. The following year she again was in pantomime, this time in Cinderella, at the Coventry Hippodrome, which starred Ted Ray and Peggy Wilding, both huge stars in later years. When she turned 15, Doreen became a member of ENSA, entertaining the troops. Because of her youth, she was not allowed to tour abroad, but performed to all branches of the Armed Forces throughout the war, all over England. She and two others formed a novelty act called The Three Records, so called because they performed on a large gramophone. The turntable would be lit up centre stage, and Doreen would perform her acrobatics and contortionism on it. The other lady would perform tap dancing on roller skates around the stage, and the only young man would do an amazing tap dance performance, and the three of them brought the house down. There were some scary times with the bombs and the doodle bugs, but

that’s when they coined the phrase, “the show must go on”. They toured the country in the company of such stars as Billy Cotton, Max Miller, Hughie Green, Carol Levis, and the family has Christmas Cards from the late Norman Wisdom, Harry Secombe, Ken Dodd, and Bruce Forsyth. At the end of the war, aged 17, she met her husband and gave up show business as he didn’t want her travelling up and down the country. With a wry smile, she ponders how her career might have gone had she had such chances in this day and age, but in those days, girls mostly did what their husbands wanted. She had three lovely daughters, and because she was so well known, and because her sister carried on in the business, she still had the chance to meet lots of famous people, and doesn’t regret a single day of her life. Her last show was in a theatre in Bedford, on VE Day, and she remembers to this day the fantastic atmosphere and the joy that the terrible war in Europe was finally over. In her photos she was a tiny little thing, but then she still is. She’s a tiny lady with a huge heart, and a great big smile for everyone. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially of each other. Send me an email or give me a ring on 616110930 or email me with a photo to katykennedy@telefonica.net.

The goal of this initiative is to raise awareness of and reward those actions being carried out by different social organisations on the island to preserve and/or improve the landscape of Tenerife, and through the positive example set by these actions to highlight the importance of protecting our landscape and encouraging its care and appreciation. Prizes were awarded in three different categories, designed to award different initiatives and groups. Category 1: ‘Improved integration of business premises into the landscape’, aimed at small and medium businesses (less than 250 employees) in Tenerife whose premises are visible from any of the roads in

Category 2: ‘Good public landscaping practice’, aimed at non-profit organisations (residents’ associations, cultural groups, ecological groups, etc.) on the island of Tenerife which have carried out renovation, integration or awareness-raising projects that have resulted in an improvement to the landscape of Tenerife. Category 3: ‘Using short films to raise awareness among the young population about the protection of the island’s landscape’, open to short films of between one and 15 minutes in duration and made by people between

the ages of 18 and 30, the subject matter should be the promotion of the appreciation of Tenerife’s landscapes, the contribution of ideas for the improvement of the landscape, and the respect and involvement of the young people of the island in its conservation. Winners were Las Chafiras SA, second Bodegas Monje (Category 1), La Asociación Familiar Vecinos in El Tablero (Category 2) and Darío López Luis (Category 3), with a special mention for the Hotel Tigaiga for its work in sustainable development.

Whilst announcing the availability of this new innovation, UK TELECOM would also like to thank their members, now numbering more than 60,000 in Spain, for their loyal support.

been during the past 3,500 days. Should a technical problem occur with your line, UK TELECOM guarantees to resolve it within 48 hours from the receipt of the reported fault. To fight for, and achieve, the new services for all phone users has been a worthwhile battle, and it is available with a set up fee of only €10. The monthly basic rental charge is €15.45 and includes an answering service, call wait-

ing service, phone number identification, also from the call waiting, as well as phone number diversion. There are no hidden costs and no contracts, just the creation of a simple unique service within the complicated world of the telecoms industry.

Insurance ::

Liberty Seguros

Continue to remain assured with Liberty Seguros A

s the number one expatriate insurance provider in Spain, Liberty Seguros continues to offer a range of high quality insurance products at competitive prices.

In particular, it specialises in offering quality vehicle insurance, giving you peace of mind that your prized possession is protected with a quality insurance product from a reputable and secure company – and even more importantly these days, at an affordable price. Much of the company’s success in the expatriate market is due to the fact that Liberty Seguros understands the needs and preferences of their ‘international’ clients. In addition to Spanish-plated cars, English, Dutch and Danish plates can also be covered with a range of features such as: new car replacement (100 per cent of the new value for first two years), help with processing fines, medical fees, legal assistance, extended travel assistance cover and a free choice of garage for vehicle repairs. Exemplary drivers can also earn a no-claims discount of up to 55 per cent, while the “Designated Driver” category can also help reduce the cost of your premium. All customers can be assured they have the perfect cover to meet all their needs and in a language they understand, because all documentation is in English (and German if required). However, whatever type of policy the customer chooses, they can be confident that an efficient claims service forms part of every insurance policy. Plus, unlike some companies that offer insurance products in Spain, Liberty Seguros is located and registered in Spain and cooperates and collaborates with the Spanish Insurance Consortium (Consorcio de Compensación de Seguros), thus reinforcing its insurance credentials and ensuring continued

peace of mind for all its customers. Advice and quotations can be sought through Liberty Seguros’ specialist department, with operators who speak many languages including English, Dutch, German, Danish and Swedish amongst others. Additionally, they offer their products through a network of over 200 intermediaries for a personal, direct and exclusive service for all international clients.

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

ď &#x161; Rat (1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008) Helpful energies will enable you to solve lingering home, paperwork and relationship hassles. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a single Rat, follow a hunch about someone new and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pleasantly surprised.

ď &#x161; Ox (1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)

You might experience friction at work or in friendship circles. Stay tactful and positive. These people are not actually victimising you, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just expressing their own frustrations.

ď &#x161; Tiger (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010) This phase offers family fun but tension in emotional relationships. Try to understand your partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewpoint and compromise. Moneywise think before spending.

5FM

ď &#x161; Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)

Expect the unexpected, but there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be anything you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle. Whatever the problem is, work hard to protect whatever you feel might be damaged.

Multi-Tasker

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a very hard working lady able to help you with, Cleaning, Baby Sitting, Driving, daily household work, etc.

Keep an eye on important paperwork and data, or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find yourself chasing around redoing research, balance sheets or letters. It is an excellent time for family bonding and romance.

ď &#x161; Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001)

Arguments could arise with a loved one, whether a partner, friend or family member. When replying think about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important; is it scoring points or maintaining a valuable relationship?

Single Horses could receive news from an ex whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interested, or start a fresh relationship that could have real potential. Think before reconnecting with anyone from the past.

ď &#x161; Sheep (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel as if various people are plotting against you or heaping unfair criticism on you. Brave it out as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nowhere near as grave as you think. If you react, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll escalate tensions.

ď &#x161; Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004)

Single Monkeys should accept an unusual invitation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you never know! Whatever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up to, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust anyone to do anything for you. It is not a good time to travel long distances.

ď &#x161; Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005)

Plan prudently and budget diligently. This is not the time to make arrangements to spend on anything other than essentials, invest or take out a loan.

ď &#x161; Dog (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006)

You will make hopeful contacts now. Some of these will be useful to your career or artistic life, while others have excellent friendship potential.

ď &#x161; Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007)

Many Pigs will find new employment and business opportunities suddenly appearing, so if you fancy a change, have the courage to pursue them.

Quiz question Day 17. When

is Nochebuena in Spain and when is Nochevieja? 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.

New Mégane

D

irección Electrónica Vial (DEV) is the name of a new communications system introduced by Tráfico on November 25.

The new Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

T

his elegant new model is available with a comprehensive range of six engine and transmission combinations, two of which are reserved solely for the flagship GT versions. Among the additions are the new EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) automatic transmission, available exclusively with the 1.5 litre dCi 110 engine, which, at 130 grammes per kilometre, gives the lowest emissions of any automatic versions in its class with a folding hard-top. Also debuting in the four-seater is the responsive, yet frugal 1.4 litre TCe (Turbo Control efficiency) 130 engine. The third petrol engine in the line-up is the 2.0 CVT 140, while the

Dynamique TomTom powertrain options end with the 1.9 dCi 130. The two-version GT range is exclusively offered with the potent 2.0-litre TCe 180 petrol engine or the high-torque, two-litre dCi 160 diesel powerplant. In keeping with the car’s style, the Mégane CoupéCabriolet comes with a high specification level, including an electric panoramic folding glass roof as standard, to give the feeling of freedom whether the top is up, or down. It also includes 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, fixed glass wind deflector, hands free keycard and fully integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation.

Core equipment on the TomTom versions includes 17inch alloy wheels, 4x15W radio CD with Bluetooth and AUX input, air conditioning, automatic headlights and wipers, panoramic glass folding roof, cruise control, fixed glass wind deflector, hands free keycard, speed limiter and fully integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation. Upgrading to the sporty new GT gives greater presence on the road through a series of interior and exterior styling enhancements. On the outside, the top of the range versions are immediately distinguishable through their bespoke sport front bumper with revised central air intake and

gloss black detailing, and rear bumper with aerodynamic diffuser. They also benefit from a dark chrome surround for the windscreen frame and waistline, with matching door mirrors, door handles and front fog lights. Rounding off the stylish accoutrements are 18-inch alloy wheels and headlights with black surrounds. The flagship model’s sport theme continues on the inside with GT sports seats, aluminium-faced pedals, an analogue rev-counter and polished carbon interior door pull handles, outer air-vents and dashboard trim including GT badging. GT versions also boast rear parking sensors and electric folding

door mirrors. Optional equipment includes metallic paint, Dual Zone climate control, heated front seats, leather upholstery, bi-xenon headlamps, Carminat TomTom satellite navigation, Arkamys 3D Sound radio with multifunctional TunePoint and removable wind deflector.

Quiz question Day 21. Who banned Christmas in England between 1647 and 1660? By George Reed

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a knockout A

few days before the recent David Haye and Audley Harrison punchup (pardon the term), Audley stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking into David Hayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes, I can see heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to wilt. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if I knock him out in a couple of roundsâ&#x20AC;Ś.. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m unbreakable.â&#x20AC;? Well first of all Audley, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very, very rare that a boxer is knocked out by one jab, which is the only punch you threw in those first two rounds, and you certainly proved once again, that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re breakable. A decent competitive performance, even in defeat might have won him something, but after this showing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retained his title as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The heavyweight the British public love to hateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. A title once held by Joe Bugner. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been controversy in boxing regarding the heavyweight who has the record for the fastest knockout since the old bare fist days when there was no such term. Nat Fleischer, the famous boxing historian, always insisted that it should be classed as a K.O. when a boxer has been stopped through the action of a referee, because of an injury or any cause other than fouling. So Audleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defeat would have been classed as a K.O. by Fleischer. However, it was some way off being the fastest K.O. in heavyweight title history - the 55 second stoppage of Jack Finnegan by James J. Jeffries in Detroit in 1900, controversial, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually dismissed as an exhibition bout, and not a genuine world championship match. The second fastest on record, the 60 second K.O. of Sonny Liston by Muhammad Ali in Lewiston, Main, in 1965 is also disputed as the videotape shows Liston hitting the canvas at one minute and 42 seconds even if the referee Jersey Joe Walcott only declared the fight over at two minutes, 12 seconds. Assuming that the official time of 60 seconds is not correct, then the quickest knockout in a heavyweight championship fight belongs to Michael Dokes, who toppled Mike Weaver in one minute and three seconds at Caesarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palace I Las Vegas on 12th October 1982 to win the title belt. Nothing excites a boxing crowd more than a knockout specialist, more so if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heavyweight. Names like Jack Dempsey, Max Baer, Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson come to mind when you think of the big hitters in the division over the years. But regarding records for stoppages before the final bell in heavyweight world title fights over the past 100 years or so, none compare to the great Joe Louis. In 26 world heavyweight title fights he stopped 22 of his opponents, knocking out five of them in the first round. Some record!

Lucky World Cup number? Christmas Lottery

The winning moment, 115 minutes and 55 seconds

Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup heroes will be hoping their 2010 luck continues at the Christmas Lottery after being given tickets with the number commemorating the time of the winning goal in the final against the Netherlands. Brewery Cruzcampo, one the national teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main sponsors, bought up hundreds of tickets with the number 11555 for the draw on 22 December and handed them out to the squad, coaching staff and the Spanish FA before the recent friendly against Portugal. The number recalls the exact time of AndrĂŠs Iniestaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strike against the Dutch, 115 minutes and 55 seconds into the game, which went to extra time and looked certain to end in penalties before the Barcelona midfielder settled matters to give Spain a first ever World Cup.

Jamper aguere

Hard times ahead

Ladies volleyball champions Jamper Aguere from Tenerife have been rocked by the departure of Spain international Patricia Aranda, who walked out on the club over payment arrears. Arandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure has served to highlight serious financial problems at the La Laguna club. According to the veteran, the delays began from the very start of the season and she was not prepared to stay on in Tenerife without full guarantees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have played for various teams that did not pay players towards the end of the season but never for one that is in trouble from Day 1â&#x20AC;?, said Aranda, who hinted that Jamper may have bitten off more than they can chew by playing in the Champions League this year if they have no money. The Andalusian carried out her threat to invoke a clause in her contract allowing her to leave if wages were not paid on time.

Yachting Olympics

Hopefuls train in Gran Canaria

Gran Canariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm climate and excellent sailing conditions have enticed several national yachting teams to the island for preparations ahead of the new season, which will be crucial to Olympic qualification aspirations. At least five national squads spent time putting their sailors and vessels through their paces in November and the number is expected to grow further as the cold sets in fully in northern Europe. Germany, Poland and Belgium are among those already to have taken to the waters off the capital, Las Palmas, for training and they will be joined soon by Britain, Russia and Switzerland, among others, many of them having signed up to compete in the international 470 and laser competitions during the long holiday weekend of 4-8 December. The events, organised by Las Palmas Yacht Club, are being sponsored by the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourist board and El Corte InglĂŠs department store.

Boxing

UD Las Palmas

Gagging order for players Comments out of turn by some Las Palmas players have prompted manager Paco JĂŠmez to slap a gagging order on the entire squad except for authorised media interviews. JĂŠmez intervened after several irate players slammed referee Gil Manzano on camera for awarding an injury-time penalty which deprived Las Palmas of a home win against Girona.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The players concerned spoke out of turn and could have caused us major problems with the FA. They showed they are not mature enough to measure their comments to the media after games so I have decided that no-one will speak to journalists unless they are designated to talk in the mixed zoneâ&#x20AC;?,

Las Palmas manager JĂŠmez

said JĂŠmez, who apologised to the media for the measure but insisted it was needed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the best interests of the team. I want them to wait until they have showered and changed before speaking and anyone who disobeys will be disciplinedâ&#x20AC;?, added the manager.

Lanzarote

Real chance for local youngster

A 12-year-old footballer from Lanzarote is on Real Madridâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radar after impressing them with his local team last season and the beginning of the current one.

GastĂłn Batista, who turns out for MarĂ­timo in the local youth league, was invited by the Spanish giants for a trial in late November after being brought to their attention by a scout. Batista has been with MarĂ­timo for several seasons, after beginning his football with Playa Honda, where he goes to school. He is the second youngster from third division MarĂ­timo to head to Madrid in recent times. Less than two years ago, Real snapped up central defender Luis Arraez for the U-15 side, after watching him in a regional tournament.

From early on children and adults from the borough were in evidence, taking full advantage of the scooter rink, the bouncy castles and three free clown shows on offer on the street outside the municipal pitch. Inside Ñandú junior and senior hockey and rugby teams were showig the growing crowds why these two sports are growing in popularity here in the Canary Islands. Over 1,300 attended at some stage during the busy day. The rugby and hockey teams are truly international in makeup, with children and adults from the Canaries and the Spanish peninsula teaming up with those whose countries of origin might be more used to the ruck and the bully off, be they from Northern Europeo or South America. Ñandú are making their mark felt at provincial level on the pitch and are always on the look out for new recruits.

CD Tenerife

The team line out against Alcorcón

By Chris Todd

21/11/10 Tenerife 1:0 Alcorcón

Blanquiazul light at end of tunnel

With all the teams fighting for survival Tenerife knew that a victory against Alcorcon was a must if they were to make up ground on their rivals. Alcorcon, the club from the suburbs of Madrid, had made an impressive start to life in the second tier of Spanish football and were even named the ‘Revelation team of the season’ so far. Their away form had not been so consistent though and the blanquiazules started the game at a blistering pace, creating a string of chances. Nino almost broke the deadlock as he flashed the ball across the goal and David Prieto should have hit the target with a diving header. Ricardo was pulling the strings in midfield, Juanlu Hens was looking dangerous down the wings and at last Natalio and Julio Alvarez started to stamp their authority on the game. The most promising thing was that the blanquiazules finally looked like a team.

Natalio hit the post on the half hour mark with a curling shot and Mikel Alonso forced a good save from Herrera in the Alcorcon goal which resulted in a corner. The half time break was greeted by a mixture of pleasure as the ticka-taka football had returned to the Heliodoro but also with frustration because of the goalless scoreline. The first attack of the second half almost provided the visitors with the opening goal when Sergio Aragoneses in the Tenerife goal fumbled a simple cross and Borja slammed the ball against the bar from close range. Minutes later a great pass by Ricardo found Nino who cut in behind the Alcorcon defence to score with ease, a huge relief after the let off up the other end. The game now was end to end, Alcorcon brought on attackers and really went for the equaliser and they squandered a raft of chances in the last twenty minutes. Alcorcon hitman Quini, the league’s top scorer, looped a header over Aragoneses and the ball hit a post and teasingly rolled along the goal line

before being cleared. Exciting stuff for neutrals, nail biting stuff for the Tenerife support who once again turned up in their masses with a crowd of 15,234. Antonio Hidalgo came off the bench for the blanquiazules and in the closing stages squandered a one on one with the keeper - how we nearly paid for that miss! In the very last second of the game, Alcorcon launched for the umpteenth time a high ball into the penalty area. The ball struck Ángel clearly on the arm, the ref played on but luckily his effort was ballooned over the bar and the final whistle blew to great cheers from the stands. It had been a very important victory for Tenerife and for once we have to admit that lady luck was on our side!

28/11/10 Villarreal B 0:2 CD Tenerife Tenerife away wins are as rare as blue moons but the blanquiazules claimed

all three points in their most accomplished match of the campaign so far.

Only one away win since June 2009 was the depressing record going into the match but there is great hope that Tenerife have finally turned the corner after their terrible start to the season. Playmaker Julio Álvarez was injured yet again prior to kick off and there are rumours that he is, in fact, made of glass.

The only slight blemishes on the day were the four yellow cards which means that Ricardo and Natalio will have to sit out next Sunday’s home clash with Granada. Two wins from two, three clean sheets in succession, a return to the typical Tenerife passing game, the season suddenly looks a lot more promising.
