oth opposition leader Mariano Rajoy and the countr y’s leader José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero visited the Canar y Islands in recent weeks in the run up to the May 22 local elections. While at national level polls are showing Rajoy’s conservative Partido Popular (PP), to be in front and set to take over a number of councils, here in the Canary Islands the outcome is less certain, and of course the Canarian Coalition (CC) is a major force in the islands, and is the party at the helm of the regional government, led by Paulino Rivero.

time out the socialist PSOE, while making gains at regional level, failed to win enough seats for an overall majority and the CC entered coalition with the PP. However that coalition broke apart (as it did at insular level in Tenerife) and there is probably no love lost between the two parties. In other words, if no one party wins an overall majority on May 22nd the make-up of a coalition could go any number of ways. At council level people do tend to vote locally, though national politics and policies do, obviously, play some part in decision making. If you are a non-Spanish EU national and have registered, you are entitled to vote at council level. Inside you will find more information on voting and how the main parties in the islands stand on a number of relevant issues. Pages 6 and 7

How to vote

I

f you are registered to vote you will be receiving a voting card in the post. However if it doesn’t arrive you are still perfectly entitled to vote if, as we have mentioned, you are registered. Check with your local council as to which polling station you need to attend, and bring some form of identification with you – residency certificate or card, passport or driving licence with photograph. Whichever document you bring must be the original. Voting takes place on Sunday May 22nd. You will be handed an envelope and a number of papers, each corresponding to the list of candidates for one particular party. Choose the party/list you wish to vote for, place it in the envelope, and place it in the ballot box on the electoral table.

special telephone number dedicated to children, ANAR (Ayuda a Niños y Adolescentes en Riesgo/help for children and adolescents at risk) received 9,369 calls from the Canar y Islands during 2010. Most of the calls were from children themselves, with 206 of them coming from adults calling the special adult/family line. The information was issued by the regional minister for social welfare and youth, Inés Rojas and ANAR director Luis Estebaranz, who also presented a new European childline number 116 111, which handles general problems related to children and not just those at risk of abuse or who are abandoned. According to the councillor the free number is

open 24 hours a day and will help the young callers seek solution to the problem that concerns them. There will be professionals available on line who can help with answers or simply take time to listen. The ANAR foundation has been working to protect children at risk for more than 40 years in Spain and opened the first line dedicated to children’s needs in 1994. Since then ANAR have dealt with over two million calls to the number. Of the calls from the Canary Islands last year, in 272 cases special follow up action was taken. Of the callers 91 per cent were between the ages of 12 and 17, eight out of ten were from girls, and most of the calls were made in the morning, though 20 per cent were made during the hours of 11pm and 8am.

C ru ise traffic

Hotel sector

The Canary Islands were the most chosen region by cruise tourists in the first quarter of the year.

Booming business from now until the end of the summer could mean thousands of extra jobs in the hotel sector in the Canaries in the immediate future.

Canaries in the lead

Over half a million passengers, 551,338 visited the islands, 27.2 per cent more than in the same three month period last year. The Islands received over 55 per cent of the cruise traffic nationally. Across the country the number of passengers reached a new record, 987,311, an increase of 21.7 per cent over 2010. Given that the most popular months for cruise passengers to visit Spain is between May and October, the numbers are very promising indeed and it is possible that the country will receive a record eight million cruise passengers in total. Cruise traffic in the first quarter was concentrated mainly in five ports which received 90 per cent of the business, Las Palmas, Tenerife, Barcelona, Málaga and the Balearics.

Job prospects open up

With occupancy rates their highest for several years and the prospect of more business being diverted from North Africa (Morocco becoming the latest country to spark tourist safety fears following the recent Marrakech market bombing yesterday), the head of the Ashotel hoteliers’ association says members expect to increase recruitment significantly from now to cope with demand. “We are very optimistic that the trend will continue until the situation calms down in other countries, so anywhere between 7,000-8,000 jobs could be in the pipeline in hotels in the islands” explained José Fernando Cabrera.

CabildoNews

New links

Turismo de Tenerife is currently exploring opening up new links to Canada, Israel and other destinations in North America. In the USA, for example, the island’s tourism body has begun a promotional campaign for iPad users, of which there are over 15 million, with an application which allows them to access information and a video about Tenerife. The link to the campaign is flagged on publicity banners on tour operator websites and can also be accessed by potential visitors in Canada and the UK. Canada is a new target market and in May a group of journalists is due to arrive from there to get to know the islands and their attractions, and reporting back to their readers and potential visitors. Turismo de Tenerife is also continuing to work on establishing a direct air link with Israel and recently hosted a visit by representatives from the Roim Olam tour operators who will bring a group over in June.

Shopping boost

The Tenerife Cabildo have approved the contracting of a team of specialists whose job will be to reinvigorate the commercial life of town centres throughout the island.

According to the insular councillor for economic development, Efraín Medina, the Cabildo had set aside a Budget to engage specialists who will work with

towns/companies to boost their selling potential and bring life back to the centres as well as protecting smaller businesses who often suffer when large commercial centres open. He said that the protection of the smaller business was also helped by attracting more people to local public spaces via the creation of “a programme of activities which would increase the attraction of these zones as a place to come and shop”.

Macho, No

The Tenerife Cabildo’s Youth, Education and Equality department has just launched a new campaign Enrédate sin machismo (literally meaning ‘dating without chauvinism’). The initiative is a follow up to an ongoing programme designed principally to prevent domestic and gender-based violence and will be disseminated through social networks and the Internet. According to the Tenerife councillor for Youth, Education and Equality, Josefa García, through the updated programme they hope to reach at least 5,000 people online. The campaign uses young images and language geared towards the adolescent population, reflecting their day to day lives and experiences, promoting chat and discussion on what the indicators of chauvinistic behaviour are and how to prevent it. The first phase of the campaign, which has been running since February 2010, saw the creation of the website www.enredatesinmachismo.com, which had almost 6,000 visits, as well as using social network sites.

The Canarian government turned out in force in El Sauzal (Tenerife) for the funeral of the mother of the region’s President, Paulino Rivero, who died at the end of April.

Caridad Baute, 81, was laid to rest in the town cemetery after a short ceremony in the local church. Scores of politicians and prominent business figures joined the people of El Sauzal in walking behind the cortege, which was led by Rivero and his wife Ángela Mena. News in Brief >>

Customs succ ess

Drug yacht seized

Spanish Customs have dealt international drug traffickers another blow with the seizure of a yacht carrying a significant quantity of cocaine in the Atlantic, off the Canary islands recently.

The yacht, which was escorted into Las Palmas, was boarded by armed officers a few days previously after a surveillance operation was launched when it left South America earlier in April. Police sources say the two crew members, who have been remanded in prison, came to their attention thanks to telephone interception in a separate drug operation here some time ago. 60 kilos of cocaine found on the yacht were due to be destroyed.

AEAT

Payback time!

The AEAT, the national department of tax, have said that up to €435 million will be paid in tax rebates to 622,500 Canarian tax payers. According to the AEAT Canarian delegate, José Luis Rodríguez, there were 402,000 tax declarations made in the province of Las Palmas and the office will make rebates of €236 million and earn €90 million in unpaid taxes. In Santa Cruz de Tenerife 364,500 employees are making returns, with €199 million paid out and €83 in returns to the state.

British Royal Wedding

There went the bride? R

ivalled only by the Barcelona Madrid football matches, the British Royal wedding had a global audience of, depending on what source you are relying on, up to three billion watchers. In Spain as elsewhere globally British ex-pats gathered in numbers to watch the event, and enjoy a day of pomp and pageantry, including the British Embassy in Madrid, where, at the end of the ceremony in London, Ambassador Giles Paxman and his wife Segolene cut a speciallymade wedding cake decorated with colours of the union flag and joined guests in making a toast to the royal couple.

Setting off on their epic journey

ceptics, eat your hats! After sixty-six, ‘largely balmy’ days riding the Atlantic waves, the raft Antiki has got there. Islanders cheered her arrival at the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. An-tiki left Valle Gran Rey, after a two month construction period, on January 30th. Excitement was high. An-tiki was famous after radio and TV coverage and anyway, there it was in the port for all to see. The strange blue and yellow plastic construction with its corrugated metal hut and enormous mast took shape in the midst of us. There was a crowd when it was taken to the launch ramp, then launched. There was a crowd when it was officially baptised, the town band playing the Spanish national anthem to add a note of gravity to proceedings. “We don’t know the English one. We know the Titanic theme, but thought it might be inappropriate”, band member and deputy mayor Alber to Roldan joked. Jokes and disaster predictions abounded. All aspects of the raft and its proposed journey, as is traditional, were hotly argued in local bars. The man responsible

The hardy crew

An-tiki’s arrival La Gomera

was author and broadcaster Anthony Smith, who celebrated his eighty-fifth bir thday on the crossing. His crew were civil engineer David Hildred, solicitor John Russell and doctor Andy Bainbridge, aged between fifty-six and sixty-one. Pessimists thought Anthony’s wish to end his days at sea was understandable, but not the others’. Optimists thought it was a wonderful adventure. On departure day, both lob-

bies were there to cheer and whistle as they left harbour, green bananas hanging aft. It was goodbye to La Gomera, and land. Six miles out, when north easterlies filled the sails, the tow line went and they were on their own, crossing the Atlantic on a collection of lashed-together water pipes, with not much in the way of steering and absolutely no chance of stopping or turning back.

I was in the towboat. We shouted across the water. The different way An-tiki levelly rode the heavy swell, while we pitched and rolled, was very noticeable. There was banter of the “…you’re making us feel sea sick, can’t you keep still?” order from the raft, but once they cut loose, drew level and overtook us, we were all quiet. This Big Moment was dramatised by the appearance – truly - of a rainbow, dolphins, pilot whales and a turtle, prompting whoops and laughs. And that was it. Laughing, they were off. We headed back, trying to spot them over the swell. We wished them well then, and in my case, ever y day afterwards. Online, like most of Valle Gran Rey, I monitored their progress via Yellow Brick and read the blog. I was in contact with their UK support and, wonderfully, a few times with the rafters themselves via very brief emails.

My involvement began last August, when Anthony Smith contacted me. He wanted to meet to talk about his raft project. We were busy with funeral arrangements in Dorset and I tried to put him off, but finally agreed to meet him when he asked if he could drive down to Shaftesbury from London, “just for an hour”. The ‘free range pork pies’ offered on our pub lunch menu conjured up the same Pythonesque image to us both. We got on well. I agreed to be the local fixer. My penchant for nutters is well documented and Anthony can be very charming. Back in Gomera, I started. The requirements for local maritime authorities were a nightmare. An-tiki’s container was on its way to Valle Gran Rey. The raft had to be built, launched, stocked and gone by early January to avoid bad weather. The crew and support

team were due to arrive. Emails, phone calls, faxes, driving, talking, coaxing and calling in favours slowly paved the way. Most people were intrigued, sympathetic and inclined to help, but in these days of risk mitigation, rules rule. An eighty-four year old floating across the Atlantic on large pieces of primar y coloured plastic is an unusual and worr ying insurance risk. Local maritime authorities were Very Cautious Indeed. Charming to a man, they insisted on their list, despite differences in UK and Spanish maritime practice making some of it impossible to achieve in the time available, if ever. Anthony was outwardly cheer ful throughout and I tried to be, but it all looked very doubtful. On November the twentysecond, Anthony and advance party got off the ferry. I took them to their accommodation. The red container arrived next day and work started. I had to: arrange accommodation; get permission for the container to arrive and stay at the construction site; get permission for the raft to be built there; organise machinery and personnel to unload the container; get electricity and water; arrange and advertise local information sessions at school and town hall; keep local authorities sweet; arrange, and translate for, radio and television interviews; put out Spanish press releases, regular updates and answer queries; source whatever was needed; provide occasional transport; arrange welding; press on with permission for the raft’s legal departure; liase with harbour master and security; arrange transportation to the launch ramp; organise the of ficial baptism; help organise the tow out and get local permission

By Barbara Belt to leave. It consumed time, but I enjoyed being part of the project. The sixty-six days since we said goodbye have been fairly plain sailing. There were a couple of occasions when they were fed up with losing headway, when their course blipped badly, but there were no real problems. “We all get on remarkably well. Anthony’s writing his book, so we’re all on best behaviour”, joked John in one message. Ironically, the lack of problems caused problems. The media likes celebrities and disasters. None were forthcoming, but Anthony’s weekly articles were characteristically entertaining and informative and the Telegraph sent a photographer to cover the arrival, despite the lack of drama. An-tiki’s story is not over. Her original destination was Eleuthra, in the Bahamas. Anthony wanted to commemorate the Anglo Saxon, sunk off the Canarian coast in the Second World War. The only two surviving crew members made it across the Atlantic to a beach there. Their life raft is now in the Imperial War Museum, thanks to him. But delays caused them to head for St. Maartens instead. David Hildred, home in the Virgin Islands, says, “… John and Andy have left St M ... Anthony is still there… they’ll haul the raft and store it for the rest of the year. Then Anthony will regroup, the plan he favours is to relaunch after the hurricane season and go on to the Bahamas…If we had got there this year, I think he would have gone back to Acton and felt very flat, this way he won’t. John, Andy and I said we would all go on the raft again, time permitting, but it may be that Anthony takes young people or even ladies on the next trip”.

Ships in Arrecife

Lanzarote visitor record

Lanzarote’s Cabildo-run tourist and leisure attractions broke their daily visitor record recently with just over 13,000 people passing through the doors on Wednesday 20 April.

Although not a public holiday, the mid-week day saw much larger crowds than usual, with long queues encountered at some of the facilities. Topping the table were the Jameos del Agua and the Montaña del Fuego in Mt Timanfaya, although the Cueva de los Verdes and Cactus Garden were also very busy. The local tourism board says the extra numbers were due to the presence on the day of three big cruise ships in Arrecife the Queen Victoria, Aida Blue and Black Watch. Last year, the Cabildo’s attractions drew almost 2.5 million visitors, generating 20 million euros between them.

Twitter tweaks

Canteras beach ‘theft’ resolved

An eagle-eyed Las Palmas Internet user spotted the unauthorised ‘theft’ of the city’s Las Canteras beach by a top Costa del Sol hotel for its website. The 4-star Maineke Hotel in Torre Del Mar used a spectacular photo of the beach on its site, giving the impression that the popular spa hotel was located next to the long stretch of sand. However, the borrowing was spotted by someone who was browsing the web and recognised his local beach. The indignant Canarian reported his find on Twitter and other social networking sites and a campaign was launched within minutes to spread news of the ‘outrage’. Later the same night the hotel pulled the photograph from the site, with a spokesperson insisting a computer error had caused the problem, which had been rectified as soon as its attention was drawn to the mistake.

Ticket sales

Sting concert chaos P

eople who tried to buy tickets for July’s Sting concert in Las Palmas are calling for a full investigation into the problems that arose within minutes of the prized tickets being put up for sale. The media in Gran Canaria have reported extensively on the chaos that resulted in many fans having to buy top-end tickets at around €170, which included a souvenir pen and programme, because they were told that the €40 ones had sold out. Less than two hours later,

however, a large batch of the cheaper tickets became available again, prompting allegations of a deliberate tactic to pull in the revenue from the VIP tickets as early as possible. Disappointed fans also want to know how, if the organisers announced the sale would begin at 10am, many people were already posting comments on social networking sites to say they had bought theirs before that time. Most of the criticism has been aimed at the external company that arranges on-line and telephone sales for major events in Spain, including the Sting concert.

Summer bookings

Russians are coming R

ecent promotion campaigns by the Canarian tourism authorities in Russia look set to produce spectacular results, according to the authorities. The number of slots requested by Russian planes for flights to the region during the summer is almost 100 per cent up on the same period last year. The figure was given by the Department

of Tourism in a recent parliamentary session in response to questions by MPs on the effectiveness of marketing drives in new markets. According to the government, the Russian market is one of the fastestgrowing for the Canaries at present and justifies increased efforts to attract holidaymakers. The total number during 2010 was 15 per cent up on 2009 and the increase is expected to continue

throughout this year. Back in March, Tourism officials from here spent a week in Moscow at the MITT Holiday Fair and held talks with Russian tour operators with a view to adding extra routes to the Canaries. The previous month, 40 travel agents from St Petersburg travelled to Tenerife and Gran Canaria on a fact-finding trip, one of up to six the Canarian authorities intend to organise for this year.

Questions answered

I

n the run up to the local and regional elections we asked the main parties at insular level and CAN, to answer a number of questions that would be of relevance to European voting at local elections. As we go to press we have received answers from the Coalición Canaria (CC), the Partido Socialista Obrero España (PSOE) and the Centro de Arona (CAN) who are running in the Arona local elections. Here are their answers, listed in alphabetical order.

Does your party have noncandidates? Q.Spanish CAN (Centro de Arona) : Yes, we have Marco Arosio, who is our representative in CAN looking after EU nationals and tourism. He is from Italy. CC (Coalición Canaria): We don’t judge our candidates by their origin or nationality, although it is logical that they come from a European Community country, live in the Canaries and have an interest in voting here and pushing the Canaries forward. PSC/PSOE (Partido Socialista Obrero Español): For election to local councils yes, we have candidates of various nationalities, though not for the Tenerife Cabildo.

. Do you have candidates on your list who speak English Q and who are accessible to English speaking voters?

CAN: Marco speaks six languages, including English. CC: Yes, and we have others who are at the disposition of voters who speak other languages. Our relationship with Europe and

Great Britain is historic. Our party is encouraging foreign language study so that Canarians can be on the same terms as citizens from all over the world.

. Does your party believe that European Community Q residents should have the right to vote in National,Regional and Cabildo elections?

PSOE: Yes, and we are ready to consider any initiative, suggestion or ideas that come from the English language community.

CAN: We believe that this is a right that all should have and don’t understand why some do and others don’t have the right to vote at these levels.

Q

CC: Community residents only have the right to vote in local elections, as stated in the Spanish Constitution. To change that situation would require a constitutional reform, although this party would not oppose that.

. Is your party in favour of introducing legislation which gives employment priority to Canarians?

CAN: The CAN policy on employment is based on two criteria – equal access for all to employment and improving the rights of those in work. CC: Yes. We believe that everyone who lives in the Canaries is Canarian. We are presenting two concrete proposals: to give priority to unemployed residents, and to encourage, with business associations, syndicates and the government, the contracting of residents. PSOE:In our eyes anyone who lives in the Canary Islands is a Canarian. Of course our priority is to meet the needs and requirements of all our residents.

PSOE: At the moment, and under current legislation, they only vote in council elections as that is the public administration that is closest to them.

Q

. Is there a line of thinking within your party which believes that there are too many Community residents living and working in the archipelago?

CAN: Since the 1960s Europeans have been visiting the Canaries and bringing their experience and knowledge to the islands, and have demonstrated that this

enriches rather than diminishes the quality of life here...the Canarians have been to the forefront in demonstrating how to welcome visitors and live in harmony with them. CC: No. But we do believe that we have a small and fragile territor y which we must care for. In 15 years the Canarian population has increased to more than 500,000, making this one of the most densely populated areas in Europe. This growth puts the environment and essential public services at risk. PSOE: No, absolutely not. We firmly believe that multiculturalism enriches our society.

. Is your party in favour of regularising and legalising Q freedom of movement of Community residents within the archipelago?

CAN: Ye s , d e m o c r a t i c freedom has to be valued throughout Europe.

Employment: our main commitment / Tourism: the engine that fuels our economic development Comprehensive security: a pillar of our social wellbeing / Culture and sports: cornerstones of our coexistence

José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga Valuing the future

VOTE

TOGETHER WE ARE ADEJE

CC: If we find that we need to introduce specific legislation, as have other islands in the world, we will bring the debate to the table. We receive more than 10 million tourists each year, but our obligation is to preserve our quality of life and countryside, which has an incalculable value for the survival of the Canaries. PSOE: Only when it is within the legal boundaries which are established under law and the Spanish constitution.

. Who does your party think could or should be entitled Q to any form of benefit or financial assistance from the public authorities? Who should not qualify?

CAN: Help should be available for all those who need it, all those who have been living here for a while and paying taxes like the rest of the population, but not for those who have just arrived and want to live here without working.

CAN: Centro de Arona PSC/PSOE: Partido Socialista Obrero EspaĂąol CC: CoaliciĂłn Canaria PP: Partido Popular

. Which political decisions would your party propose Q to confront the economic crisis in the archipelago?

CAN: We don’t have representation at regional level. CC: Reduce unemployment, increase the competitivity of the Canarian economy, diversify and internationalise the Canarian economy, encourage foreign investment, introduce incentives to develop business activity, amongst others.

CC: Actually, all Canarian residents benefit from such assistance, on equal terms. This does not happen in other European countries, such as France, where only the French qualify. Other countries also have their own specifications. PSOE: We in the PSOE defend the right to benefits of anyone who is legally living in our country, and their right to be treated equally and under the same conditions as any Spaniard.

. Is your party in favour of a Q public declaration relating to the origins of all the funds used in electoral campaigns?

CAN: Of course we are. Transparency in party accounts is something we have been calling for in Arona and should be an example to all residents.

. Is your party in favour of Q declarations of candidates’ financial positions before commencing the campaign?

CAN: We are obviously in favour of this. CC:If we are all in agreement, we don’t have a problem with that. The more transparency there is, we will be more able to develop our political activity and true objective, which is public service. It is sad that many political parties only remember the public when they want their votes. PSOE: Yes, within the framework of democratic transparency. We have already included this in our electoral programme and all our candidates are making such declarations.

CC: Yes, and we are already doing that, by law.

PSOE: The PSOE is suggesting the continuance and modification of the REF (the regional economic status accorded to the Canaries) to improve the competitivity of Canarian businesses. The RIC (Canarian investment fund) should be used to generate employment and encourage new business enterprise. As well as the promotion of a new economic development model we consider investing in the tourism industry in parallel with the development of agricultural, health and welfare policies equally important.

Q

. Is your party in favour of previous agreements between all the parties regarding limiting the number of assessors or technical experts that councillors can have? CAN: We are in favour of this CC: We agree with reducing the numbers, but not with implementing a campaign against them. We prefer to have an agreement with our citizens, without discounting the idea of pacts. PSOE: Most definitely we are.

PSOE: Yes, of course.

Making a difference I

n recent months we have seen hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets in different countries in North Africa and other parts of the Arab world protesting at their lack of freedom and democracy.

Men, women and some children have not just taken to the streets to voice their discontent; many have paid with their lives for rights they seek, for rights that are considered basic in other parts of the world. Can you imagine living in a society where you had no right to protest, no right to express disagreement with the authorities, no right to be different? If you were raised, as most of our readers were, in some form of a democracy where such rights are inherent, part of what we consider to be the norm, it is virtually inconceivable that these rights would not be basic. But for many that is the case. On May 22nd we have the privilege to exercise one of those basic rights, a right we perhaps too often take for granted. The right to vote. If you are on the register here in Spain you can vote in your local elections. And while it’s not obligatory, it is a level of participation that should be taken advantage of. We hear some people saying that “it’s too complicated� – no, voting is simple, it’s a list system and explained elsewhere in this edition. Others apathetically say that why should they bother, their vote won’t make a difference. Wrong. In fact your vote in the Spanish local elections probably makes more of a difference than in other elections in other countries. Just a handful of votes can shift the balance in winning or losing a seat, and see a party in or out of local office. As foreign residents we can make our voices heard and oblige local politicians to take notice of our needs and wants. And for those who think they don’t have time or enough information to vote but are not hesitant in complaining about local authorities over a coffee or a beer: If you know enough to complain you should take that knowledge to the ballot box and make your grievance an active one. If you still don’t know who to vote for, on these pages of this paper you will find the stance of most of the main parties on a number of issues in answer to a questionnaire we sent to them prior to the elections. We hope their answers help you make up your mind.

Autopsy controversy

Aitana mystery continues T

he death of a threeyear-old girl from Costa del Silencio in November 2009 is back in the headlines again after revelations that an independent pathologists’ report has challenged the official version that the youngster died accidentally. Aitana Rubio García’s death caused nationwide commotion when her 22-year-old stepfather,

Diego Pastrana, was accused of sexually assaulting her, on the basis of signs allegedly found when she was admitted to hospital in a near-coma condition. The man was later released without charge after a more detailed examination showed the marks were consistent with a fall from a swing a few days earlier, which was not treated properly at a local health centre, where doctors

failed to spot serious internal bleeding. The Diario de Avisos newspaper reported that, in a detailed report dated September 2010, two experts hired by Aitana’s family in Madrid say the swing fall is unlikely to have been the cause and bruising in the abdomen pointed to ‘a violent death’. The findings have been rejected by the Tenerife pathologists who carried out the initial autopsy. The case was still under consideration by an Arona court.

CEST::

‘Merge towns’ call A

n influential business association has put merging several towns in south Tenerife at the top of its list of priorities for more efficient and cost-ef fective municipal ser vices.

The business association, CEST, which has just published a document outlining its proposals to streamline

public administration at local and regional level, says 31 separate municipalities on an island like Tenerife ‘is absurd’ and means that economies of scale cannot work properly. CEST sees as particularly problematical in terms of efficiency the excessive number of town halls between Candelaria and Santiago del Teide and wants serious consideration to be given to several of them pooling

their resources, if not erasing their boundaries, to save on bills. “Other countries such as Portugal and Greece are moving in this direction and we should also think about it” adds the association, which represents 1,200 small and large firms in the south of the island. Among other demands, CEST is calling also for five new courts in Arona to ease the current saturation.

Icod icon

Dragon tree wall can stay

Residents in Icod de los Vinos have lost their battle to prevent the town’s most famous attraction from being enclosed by walls. The centuries-old Drago/ Dragon Tree, which is visited by an estimated 50,000 people every year, has been at the heart of a bitter wrangle between the authorities and locals since the wall was built back in 1996. Residents say the wall has deprived them of their view of the unique tree and was merely a way of ensuring people had to pay to see it. For its part, the council insisted at the time that it was needed to protect the dragon tree from damage and is now a key part of the new visitors’ centre. The fight to remove the wall has led to multiple legal battles but has now been resolved definitively by Spain’s Supreme Court, which has ruled that the

authorities did not breach planning regulations when building the wall 15 years ago. News in Brief >>

Cruise business

Worth €85 million

The importance of cruise ship stopovers for the Tenerife economy has been underlined by the head of the island’s Port Authority. Pedro Zaragoza used the opportunity offered by the extensive media coverage of Easter visits by cruise liners carrying a total of nearly 20,000 passengers to give an approximate calculation of the contribution made by the year-round port stops. “The ships do not just bring business for the port. If you add in all the other revenue for taxis, coach trips, shops, restaurants, suppliers, fuel etc,

Light plane scare

A pilot of a light plane had a major scare when trying to land in Tenerife North airport recently. The aircraft was a short distance from the ground when the pilot realised his undercarriage had not deployed properly and he was forced to attempt the landing without it. The plane skidded along the runway on its underside before coming to stop, as emergency services, including the fire brigade, rushed to deal with the incident. Airport sources said afterwards that the pilot was unhurt but badly shaken by the ordeal. Five flights were prevented from landing or taking off while a crane worked for almost an hour to remove the stricken aircraft from the runway.

A TimeTerje lapse SorgjerdTeide in Tenerife during the shooting of The Mountain

The Mountain A

time-lapse short video that was shot at the start of April on Mount Teide has already been seen by over five million people and ‘recommended’ by over 23,000 people on networking sites. Shot by Nor wegian cameraman Terje Sorgjerd, fans of The Mountain include the Tenerife Cabildo president, Ricardo Melchior, who has congratulated Sorgjerd and says he is hoping to come to an arrangement with him to use

the work in promoting Mount Teide national park, which will more than likely be under the remit of the Cabildo from July of this year. Melchior told local press, “we are talking about a work of ver y high quality which shows an extraordinary vision of Tenerife...” Terje said that his goal in making the film, which took ten days of photography, was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of “the most amazing mountains I know, El Teide. I have to

say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. “A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April, and at approximately 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes. Interestingly enough my camera was set for a five hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined.

ccording to the latest statistics from the Ética, an official data ser vice using information directly sourced from the national department of Education, the Canar y Islands ranks as the lowest region in Spain with regard to excellence in education, as well as a poor funding efficiency/ spending ratio. The only regions below these islands are Castilla-La Mancha and the Balearic Islands, and occupying top spots are the Basque Country, Navarra, Castilla y León and Asturias. The data released corresponds to the 2008-2009 school year, and uses 58 indicators to evaluate levels of education excellence in nine areas, school adaptation, public spending, graduation levels, the relationship between the student and the course they are studying, early school leavers, as well as education on social initiatives, the teaching staff

available and complementary resources, such as computers, etc. The school ‘life time’ of a six year old student is analysed, in other words the study previews the expected and average educative life cycle of the child, up to and including the intention to pursue university studies. In Castilla y León the average age of those remaining in full time education was 15.5 years of age, while in the Balearics it drops to 12.2 years old, which was just three points below the Canary Islands. The average national age for the school year in question was 14.5. Looking at students who are behind for their age, in Catalonia 9.8 per cent of children fell into this category, while in the Balearic it was at 25 per cent, with students in the Canary Islands fourth from the bottom. Overall in the Canaries as well as in Andalucía, the Balearic and Murcia almost half of the registered students enter second level education without having completed their primary studies, or displaying a level that is behind the national average. The worst region for early school leavers was again the Balearics, with 40.8 per cent (the level was 16 per cent in the Basque Countr y), with the Canaries lying mid-table in this regard.

Debate continues

Los Cristianos port move The debate over the benefits of moving the Los Cristianos ferry port further along the coast to Fonsalía in Guía de Isora continues in the local media. Although not receiving anywhere near the coverage granted to the controversial new port planned for Granadilla, the proposal could have just as big an impact given that it would mean all ferry traffic would be transferred from Los Cristianos. According to the latest soundings, few oppose the move given that it is generally thought that the port benefits Los Cristianos very little, as ferry passengers tend to travel from other parts of Tenerife just in time to catch their sailing but do not contribute much to the resort’s economy. Moreover, transferring the ferries would

According to the Diario de Avisos newspaper, which has reported extensively on the planned move of late, only the taxi sector is openly opposed to the move, given the potential

loss of business to Guía de Isora. The local traders’ association in Los Cristianos is adopting a wait and see attitude for the moment. “We will support anything that gets rid of the traffic jams which bring nothing but inconvenience to the area. We will not back anything that takes business away from Los Cristianos, however” said spokesman Antonio Luis.

e have lost a friend, a fighter, a father. Millán Gómez González was one of those rare people who lived, genuinely, for each moment of each day. His extremely untimely death at the age of 54 has shocked and saddened his immediate family, friends and the wider community in Callao Salvaje and beyond in Tenerife as well as family in Madrid and the rest of Spain. In Callao Salvaje he was one of the real community leaders – though he eschewed titles, or some of the bureaucracy of local authorities. He was the one who wanted to fight to ensure the village was fairly treated, that the children had a proper playground, that the streets should be kept clean, that the rates and taxes people paid were going to the right place. It was Millán who called the local press when he rightly felt the village

was being ignored, but he was also there in the thick of things to help when local initiatives took off. As a friend he was also honest and straight in his dealings with everyone. A lifelong Rolling Stones and Real Madrid fan, he lived life as he wished, despite a years’ long battle with cancer, which he won against all the given odds. And in recent years the most important thing in his life was spending as much time as he could with his two children, and he was a welcome regular member of the ‘mothers in the park’ group for evening playtime in Callao Salvaje. Millán, we will miss you a lot. But I would like to think that you’re not gone, but you are, like the Rolling Stones, on tour. Hope to catch you at a gig in the future!

Modifications

underway

As we reported a number of months ago, the Guía de Isora council had raised a number of concerns at the new bridge that was built to connect the village of Chío with the new island ring road. Now, according to the local councillor for urban development Raúl Morales Torres, work to address the problem is beginning. The main problem was that the angle of the road combined with the steepness meant reduced visibility for those both entering and exiting the village, with complaints from residents, commuters, truck drivers and farmers attached to the Nuestra Señora de la Paz agricultural co-op. Members of the council met with those in charge of the road works, and requested a modification in the plans to increase security along the stretch in question. According to councillor Morales Torres, “following a number of weeks in which

January 2005 murders in court

Gang trial begins

The trial of three men accused of double homicide and the attempted murder of another man near Callao Salvaje in January 2005 is due to begin as we go to press. The deaths were shocking in their brutality, and at the time were reported to be the result of gang warfare. The three were attacked on the road about a kilometre beyond Callao Salvaje. One of the deceased was stabbed in the chest and had his throat cut, while the second man was tossed still alive over the edge of a steep embankment to fall 15 metres to his death – he had also been stabbed and very badly beaten. The third man was also beaten and stabbed but managed to flee the scene and was found the following day by police in Las Américas. The prosecution are asking for 15 years for each of the accused for each death and 10 years for the attempted homicide.

won’t require any extra land as it remains within the plot already expropriated for the ring road. The solution adopted, explained the councillor, will see a widening of both sides of the bridge and the particular part of the road that connects the village with the motorway will be modified to reduce the angle and increase visibility for both drivers driving up to and down from Chío.

s new ways of defrauding the public come to light, new insurances are brought onto the market to cover the risks, one of the latest of these deals with identity theft. Identity theft occurs when a person’s personal details are used to fraudulently obtain goods, or credit or in some cases marry for money and often you won’t find out until it’s very late in the day and may have trouble proving your case. The theft or loss of your identity documents is a total pain anyway. Going the whole round from pillar to post to get new documents, duplicate credit cards, report the loss to the police, if it’s your whole bag that’s gone, you may even have to change your door locks. Often the possibility that someone may

the debtors’ lists. Sometimes proving that you have been a victim of identity theft can be very difficult. An identity document or driving licence for example, also gives sufficient details for a mobile phone contract to be signed. The phone bill will be in your name of course and your responsibility. On the Internet an incredible amount of goods can be purchased using a credit card – your credit card! Some now use an advanced system and ask for a personal identification number (PIN) but many do not and an expert in identity theft could use your card to buy and resell a stack of goods to his or her benefit. Skimming cards is another common trick. This is a method of copying the details on the magnetic stripe on your card which can then be

a withdrawal so they need to know that it has been stolen if you don’t want your account emptied. Send your details to the Veraz-Persus file. It’s a free service which lists people who have had their documents stolen and is consulted by the major lending bodies before they approve loans, new accounts etc. In the United States, identity theft is one of the fastest growing frauds which is why they have a wide selection of insurances for cover against this practice which has multiplied in recent years. In Spain the cases are growing which is pushing insurance companies to bring products onto the market to mitigate the effects of the theft of identity. Panda LiveCare is an online insurance company which will protect you for

Insurance

Identity theft be using your private details for fraudulent means doesn’t occur to you until it’s too late. According to a report by the insurance company CPP, 89 per cent of Spanish residents know about identity fraud, but few do anything to prevent it. The same study tells us that 63 per cent don’t check their bank statements very often and so wouldn’t even know if their accounts were being regularly milked. Your identity document is one of the most important personal details for a thief. With that he or she can get a job, open bank accounts, obtain credit cards, loans, mobile phones and account. If you lose your identity document it isn’t enough simply to report it to the police, you should also make a note to check the debtors’ lists for example, or even the civil register as occasionally stolen documents are used to contract fraudulent marriages for cash. One of the most common frauds is using personal details to obtain loans or buy items on credit. The victim ends up with a loan in their name which they didn’t ask for and if they don’t pay it he or she can end up on

reproduced on a false card, again to make fraudulent purchases. Phishing has become a common term over the last few years and CPP affirm that the techniques to extract personal details in Internet are increasingly difficult to detect. It’s the use of mass email postings claiming to be a bank or other entity and requesting personal details. A recent innovation has been Vishing, the use of a mobile phone to obtain the same details. Victims of identity theft are not always even aware it has happened until they start to receive letters asking for repayments for loans they haven’t requested, or receive contracts or bills that they haven’t a clue about. To avoid problems if you lose your identity documents the first thing you must do is report the theft or loss to the police. The copy of this report may be the only document that can prove you have been the victim of an identity theft. Tell your bank and request a new bank card with a different number. Your identity document may be all that is required to make

up to €8,000 of identity theft and fraudulent purchases on Internet. The cost is €19.99 a year. CPP offer a policy called Protección de Identidad, which includes an alert system via SMS or email to warn you if a financial body is making enquiries about you before making a loan or other transactions. If it becomes necessary the company offers a service with specialists in fraud who can draw up a personalised action plan and help you with all the paperwork and moves you need to make to sort out the problem. The insurance covers up to €36,000 to pay for lawyers, private investigations, loss of work days etc. and includes a further €200 to cover the cost of replacing your identity document, driving licence, passport and so on. If you have to go to court to sort out the fraudulent use of your details, they will help you choose a lawyer who is a specialist in the field. The cost is €90 a year. Finally Chartis have started marketing a policy for identity fraud, which offers similar cover to that of CPP.

new tax rates and allowances

New UK pension regulations now in effect

*To keep in touch with the latest developments in the offshore world, check out the latest news on our website: www.blevinsfranks.com

By David Franks, Chief Executive, Blevins Franks

Car dealers say figures showing a massive rise in sales of new vehicles in the first half of April do not paint a true picture of the situation. The latest registration statistics reveal that sales were up 80 per cent on the same period last year and the news should have been received with joy by the sector. However, the association of dealers here insists that the rise is due to two main reasons: increased fleet renovation activity by car hire firms now that the holiday industry is picking up and, more importantly, the extra working (and therefore opening) days from 1-15 April, compared to 2010 when Easter fell during the period. The increase for Spain overall was just over 38 per cent, says the association.

The Tenerife branch of one of Spain’s big unions warns that up to 160,000 are now working in the black economy in the Canaries and many could be caught by the recentlyannounced government crackdown.

There is now no requirement to buy an annuity and you are no longer penalised if you choose not to. There is one regime for all ages, with the result that those aged 75 or over have a more beneficial regime than previously, but those under 75 now have lower income limits and higher death charges.

• On death after starting drawdown there is now a tax designed to recover

Most people will move into “capped drawdown” when they vest their pension. The income limits are set by the Government Actuaries Department (GAD) and while previously the limit was 120 per cent for those under 75 and 90 per cent for those over 75, it is now 100 per cent for all ages. Depending on how long you have been a non UK resident you may be able to receive a higher income than permitted by GAD - talk to an adviser like Blevins Franks to discuss the possibility and suitability of moving your pensions into a QROPS.

he new UK pension regime which came into effect on 6th April and also applies to British expatriates with UK pensions.

• Under the old system, before your 75th birthday (increased to 77 in June), you had to choose between buying an annuity or moving into an Alternatively Secured Pension (ASP) where charges on death were 70 per cent or 82 per cent. Today ASPs no longer exist. You can leave your fund invested for the rest of your life or choose to buy an annuity at any age.

past tax relief. This is at a fixed rate of 55 per cent, which is a significant tax increase for those under 75 as their previous rate was 35 per cent. For those over 75 it is a very welcome improvement on 82 per cent. Expatriates may be able to move their private pensions into a QROPS and if they then have been non-UK resident for five full and consecutive UK tax years on death their fund will escape this UK charge. • Residual pension assets on death are not additionally subject to inheritance tax. • The 75 age limit at which you can take your pension commencement lump sum has been removed. • The latest age for lifetime allowance test also remains 75. The allowance will be reduced from £1.8 million to £1.5

million from 6th April 2012. If you have pension savings over £1.5 million you have one year to take action to protect your fund from higher taxation. Since UK pensions are regulated by the UK Financial Services Authority you should only take advice from a firm which is authorised by the FSA for the conduct of pension and investment business, such as Blevins Franks Financial Management Ltd. The same applies if you wish to explore the advantages and options for transferring your pension funds into a QROPS if you an expatriate. The tax rates, scope and reliefs may change. Any statements concerning taxation are based upon our understanding of current taxation laws and practices which are subject to change. Tax information has been summarised; an individual must take personalised advice.

Business in Brief

Speed limit

Spanish saving Almost two months after the introduction of the lower speed limit, the Government is claiming that the measure has been successful in reducing the balance of payments.

The Minister for Energy, Miguel Sebastián, announced that the use of fuel is down 8.4 per cent over last year’s figures, 137,000 tons of fuel less during the last three weeks of March, the equivalent of €94.2 million in the country’s balance of payments figures. Sebastián claims that some of the cash may have been used for other expenses in the country and helped boost local industry too. If the trend continues, the approximate annual saving to the balance of payments will be €1,100 million. On the other hand less income will be provided by the taxes on fuel. The decision of whether or not to continue the lower limit will be taken on June 30th.

Arrests made

Mortgage fraud Five women and 34 men have been arrested accused of taking part in a huge bank mortgage fraud in Valencia.

It would appear that individuals in low income brackets were paid between €100 and €3,000 for the use of their personal details to obtain mortgages supposedly to buy properties. False documentation was created, wage slips, tax returns etc. and mortgage loans were thereby obtained fraudulently. The scam appears to have netted over €5 million. Amongst the accused are a bank manager and a property developer.

Carmelo Jorge of the CC.OO. union says that as the crisis continues and jobs are lost, more and more are turning to the ‘shadow economy’ to earn a living. “In many cases, people who had their own small business, like a car repair shop, have officially closed and no longer pay taxes and social security contributions, but they carry on fixing cars” explained the union official. Many others are working informally in ‘no questions asked’ situations while drawing unemployment benefits, according to the government, which is anxious to stamp out the practice by encouraging employers to register all employees in return for discounts on employee contributions and other incentives. The black economy is estimated to account for almost a third of the Canarian economy, with the latest CC.OO. calculation putting the figure at €12.4 billion.

Black economy

Three month deadline Illegal businesses have until August to register themselves and their employees.

A new plan against the black economy will tighten up sanctions against companies who are employing people without paying their Social Security contributions or tax. The Minister for Employment, Valeriano Gómez claims that the plan isn’t interested so much in looking back to see what companies have been doing but to help them legalise their situation. Remember if you employ someone who you know to be claiming benefits to do work in your home or business or pay less for goods or services because the person you are dealing with is not paying his or her full contributions and cannot therefore give you a proper receipt with a CIF number, you are aiding and abetting a fraud and are also open to sanctions. You’re aiding fraud if you employ someone to work illegally for you

HouseCalls Dear Dr. De La Flor, There are several relatives in my family with benign tumours, would that increase my chances of eventually suffering from cancer? Sincerely, Leo

Dear Leo A tumor is a growth and per se does not imply malignancy. For example, most skin tumours or growths are benign. I’ll try to explain to you the hallmarks of a cancer so that you can understand their pattern. - Self-sufficiency in growth signals: Cancer cells do not need stimulation from external signals to multiply. Cancer cells are generally resistant to growth-preventing signals from their ‘neighbours’. - Tissue invasion and metastasis: Cancer cells can break away from their site or organ of origin to invade surrounding tissue and spread (metastasize) to distant body organs. - Limitless reproductive potential: Non-cancer cells die after a certain number of divisions. Cancer cells are somewhat ‘immortal’. They are apparently capable of indefinite growth and division. - Sustained blood vessel construction (angiogenesis): Cancer cells appear to be able to kick-start this process, ensuring that such cells receive a continual supply of oxygen and other nutrients. - Evading apoptosis: Apoptosis is a form of programmed cell death (cell suicide), the mechanism by which cells are programmed to die after a certain number of divisions or in the event they become

Dear Dr. De La Flor damaged. Cancer cells characteristically are able to bypass this mechanism. - Abnormal metabolism: Most cancer cells use abnormal metabolic pathways to generate energy. - Evading the immune system: Cancer cells appear to be invisible to the body’s immune system! - Unstable DNA Cancer cells generally have severe chromosomal abnormalities, which worsen as the disease progresses. To answer more specifically to your question, I’d have to know what types of tumors your family has. Each abnormal growth behaves in a different manner, since risk factors and many individual factors can play a detrimental or beneficial effect.

Dear Dr. De La Flor, I have been diagnosed with testicular cancer but they have not told me how bad it is since they are waiting for more studies. Since I have no family histor y of such cancer, why did it happen to me? Cheers, Simon

Dear Simon, Testicular cancer is a rare type of cancer that begins within the testicles. The cancer cells no longer follow normal growth patterns, multiplying uncontrollably. The two testicles, or testes, are glands that produce male hormones and sperm.

Being proactive A motivational guru was once asked about the most important habit. He responded “being proactive.” He explained that being proactive was the one action that provides the foundation for all the other habits. The key to being proactive is remembering that between stimulus and response, there is a space. That space represents our choice and how we will choose to respond to any given situation, person, thought or event.

Resolution: Lance Armstrong is a testicular cancer survivor

Testicular cancer may spread slowly or rapidly through the lymphatic or blood vessels, depending on its type, but the path is consistent: Once cancer cells are free to spread to nearby lymph or blood vessels, they could be carried to the lungs, then to the liver, bones, and possibly the brain. You need to wait for all the tests since in general, many af flicted have an excellent prognosis … popular cyclist Lance Armstrong is a survivor of this type of cancer. As your doctor might have mentioned, thanks to advances in diagnosis and treatment, testicular cancer is among the most curable of cancers, even in an advanced stage, and it is rarely fatal. Over 90 per cent of patients are diagnosed with small, localised tumors that are highly treatable. Even if cancer has spread to nearby organs at diagnosis, patients have an excellent chance of long-term survival. To be honest with you, we don’t always know why a man develops testicular

cancer. Testicular cancer may run in families usually from parent to child but obviously that’s not your case. Genetic disorders such as Klinefelter’s syndrome and Down’s syndrome can raise the risk. Researchers have found links between testicular cancer and other factors; for instance a condition called an undescended testicle (cryptorchidism). The undescended testicle is in an abnormal area within the abdomen or groin. Surgically bringing the testicle into a normal position in the scrotum does not reduce a man’s risk for developing cancer. The normal position simply allows for better and closer examination. Men with fer tility problems are more likely to be diagnosed with testicular cancer and testicular cancer increases the risk of infertility. That’s why I strongly recommend that men with fertility issues be checked for cancer of the testicle. Best wishes for you during the treatment. Stay strong and focused!

Let’s try to spend a few minutes pondering the importance of this habit. After all, being proactive means saying “I am responsible for me, and I can choose.” Let’s try for the next two weeks to refresh this “proactive mentality” every single morning; be proactive in whatever goals we set, whatever personal and or professional goals we want to achieve.

Talk to you in a couple of weeks. Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. /Family Doctor. Holds cer tificates in coaching, nutrition and medical exercise from Berkeley University and the American Council on Exercise. His medical approach is highly influenced by Positive Psychology; an empowering, encompassing way of approaching patients through the study of their strengths and virtues to enable them to thrive and lead fulfilling lives, accept the past, find happiness in the present, and hope for the future.

Prevention promotion

Colonic cancer The director general of the regional department of public health, José Diaz Flores, recently hosted a day dedicated to the prevention of colonic and rectal cancer in the Canaries.

According to the department, since the introduction of a preventative screening programme here in 2009, over 45,000 persons between the ages of 50 and 69 have been called for testing, with 500 colonoscopies carried out to detect potentially cancerous lesions. With an alliance of concerned groups the department is working actively to reduce cases among the older public. This year the early screening programme will be further extended into El Toscal, Ofra Delicias, Miramar and Anaga in Tenerife; and to Agüimes, Ingenio, Telde, San Juan and Valsequillo in Gran Canaria, which will see a further 29,000 invited for testing, with those diagnosed as at risk having direct access to colonoscopy intervention if needed, using facilities at the Hospital Universitario Nuestra Sra de Candelaria in Tenerife and the Hospital Universitario Insular in Gran Canaria. According to Díaz Flores, early detection and treatment of a polyp can stop the evolution of the cancer and early detection also allows for early treatment and avoidance of surgery in many cases. It also leads to a significant reduction in the levels of mortality arising from the cancer. Patients who fall into high risk brackets include those who suffer from Crohn’s disease, colitis ulcers, certain hereditary syndromes or a family history of colonic cancer.

Gardens > Water features life in the pond, and also encourage green algae to grow. It’s worth considering where your source of electric and water is coming from when deciding on the location of your pond.

Types of construction Rigid or flexible liners? Coloured or neutral? Different types of materials can be used from bricks and blocks to tubs and barrels. The choice is endless!

1. Rigid liners

A

Picturesque it may be, but positioning a pond under or near a tree is not recommended. Leaves falling into the water can prove hazardous to any marine

Check that the depth is at least half a meter. Shape is the next consideration – a simple shape will not only give you more surface area than a fussy one, it is also easier to dig out! When it comes to the digging, you need to more or less match the shape of the liner you have chosen.

2. Flexible liners

If you have a creative flair, then here’s your chance to shine! Using a flexible liner enables you to design a pond to your own size and design. Once you have dug out the shape, don’t forget to use a ‘cushioner’ under the liner. Use either old blankets or polythene – bubblewrap is ideal.

Colouring in > tips

T

here was a time, about ten years ago, when nearly every apartment you walked into on this island was painted in the standard white emulsion, which, although practical and easy to maintain, can appear very stark and cold. Today, thankfully, things have changed. Nearly every hardware store (ferretaria) has a paint colour-mixing machine, which offers a myriad of wonderful shades from soft warm pastels and neutrals to deep rustic tones and rich Mediterranean colours. A good guide and source of inspiration in finding the colour you desire is to pick a shade from your fabrics, either curtains or upholstery or even a favourite piece of pottery or a print. Take a sample of the

Unlike some of the Canary Islands where hundreds of ex-pats have upped sticks and returned to their home countries due to the economic crisis, its effects on their business lives and their ability to generally make ends meet, according to the Canarian Institute of Statistics, Lanzarote has experienced a growth of 30 per cent in its British population since 2007.

I

n fact, Brits are the largest group of non-Spanish nationals on this popular holiday island which is home to 7,761 officially registered British residents, a massive increase of 31.34 per cent on the 5,909 residents registered in 2007. And these are not all seeking a retirement in the sun, there are people of all ages, suggesting that many have moved to the island to start a new life. Whatever the reason, this has kept the property market there fairly buoyant.

Unless you are a builder or a bricklayer, this way of building a pond is usually best left to the professionals! This method is the traditional way and considered by many to be the best. You can choose your own size and shape, but don’t forget to seal the concrete with a proprietary sealant before you add the water – raw concrete is harmful to fish.

4. Raised ponds Again, a job for the professionals, but the sky’s the limit when it comes to shape and size. There are several advantages to having a raised pond; being off ground level means routine maintenance is made easier, aquatic and plant life is brought closer to eye level and the safety factor is increased. Raised ponds are an ideal option for terraces – you don’t have to dig down!

5. Container ponds Less expensive to install, these type of ponds can also be moved if need be. If space is limited, containers can be the ideal option. Choose containers that are weatherproof, waterproof, non-corrosive and non-toxic. Plastic, ceramic, stone or specially prepared wooden half- barrels, the choice can is endless.

Hands On

If you’re feeling particularly brave, why not pick one of the deeper tones in the fabric to use on just one wall, a ‘signature’ wall which will act as a focal point in the room or a backdrop to a set of prints reflecting the colours in the room. A band of colour around the room at dado level can make an impact or even

colour with you, i.e. a piece of the fabric, to the ferretaria to match to the chart. When choosing from the colour chars, please bear in mind that there can be variations to the tone that you have iced, and it is often best to choose a shade lighter than the one you see on the chart. The safest bet is usually a background colour in a soft neutral (shades of cream or grey) or pastel, which will add warmth and knit together your chosen colour scheme.

dividing the room in half with the deeper tone on the lower half, a simple stencil can be used to disguise the dividing line.

Colourwashing is another option, watering down the stronger tone of emulsion and washing it over a basecoat of the lighter tone in a cross match pattern, using a large brush, gives a beautiful lively effect. However mastering this technique is not easy so be prepared to use one wall to practice on until you feel confident – it can always be painted over with the basecoat, which can be drying while you start on another wall. Whatever you decide, be brave! Don’t restrict yourself to that safe yet boring ‘white’ option in this wonderful climate, get funky and bring some of that sunshine into your home.

C era mics

Tile style Tiled furniture is popular and practical, proving an attractive option to other solid surfaces on, for example, coffee tables and dining tables.

f you are not a lover of traditional fruity or veggie tiles in the kitchen try an alternative such as unusual bathroom tiles (obviously depending how you use them). They can give stunning results and give your kitchen a different look. Retro is also in, and can add the homely touch to a new kitchen. Incorporating hand painted frescos around the house looks different and stylish.

Hundreds of thousands of home owners with variablerate Spanish mortgages can expect a sharpish increase in their monthly payments (around €60 per month) when their rate comes up for its six-monthly or yearly review. Ironically, the continuous rate rise, which has seen nearly a full percentage point added since April 2010 (when the Euribor fell to its lowest ever level, at 1.2 per cent), comes at a time when courts are handing down rul-

mortgage contracts’, which effectively protect them from handing on to customers the benefits of particularly low interest rates. Scores of legal challenges were lodged around a year ago amid public fury at the main banks’ failure to pass on the savings but now the context has changed substantially and a higher Euribor is likely to remain for the foreseeable future, with some experts predicting a rate of 2.5 per cent by the end of the year.

Community rules & duels I

n our continuing series on Community Rules we explain the roles of the president and administrator. The president is voted in by a majority of property holders, with votes weighted on the basis of the percentage participation of each property, unless the community’s statutes dictate differently. Once the president has been elected it is compulsory that he takes the position. The only way that a president may be able to get out of this appointment is to go before a judge and explain his reason for not taking up the post. If the judge decides in favour of the president, he will have to remain in the position until another person is elected at another general meeting. The president is the legal community representative of the owners. On his own initiative he can make official warnings to take initial disciplinary action against any owner who he believes is acting against the statutes. If the offender was to persist with the forbidden activities the president can summon a community meeting and with the board’s authority take legal action against the person. The president of the community can also take the position of the administrator, unless the statutes say otherwise. If the statutes demand a person other than the president the position can be taken up by another member of the community or a legally qualified person. In this case you can contact the ‘Colegio de administradores de fincas’, who will give you a list of qualified persons in your area (you will have to pay for their administrative services in this case).

istrator make sure they are covered by the professional insurance needed in order to protect the community from ‘bad practice’. The administrator of a community has an important function and is normally elected on an annual basis, unless the statutes state differently. The administrator is responsible for: ensuring the complex remains in good condition; preparing the expected budget; making and collecting payments and looking after the community’s documents. The president and administrator can be removed from their position before their term of office has expired if it is deemed necessary. It is usual for an extraordinary meeting to be called, this can be done with just 25 per cent of the participating votes on a community, but a majority vote will be needed to terminate their positions.

They recently announced that the tax relief is to rise from a maximum of 10 per cent to 20 per cent of the renovation costs. The government is also extending this relief to second homes, regardless of whether they are

by the Ministry for Development, the price paid per square metre for housing during the first quarter of this year was €1,777.6. The official statistics also reflect a fall of 51.5 per cent in the number of houses liable for taxation up to March when compared with the previous quarter, and of 46.4 per cent compared with the same period a year ago. The Ministry attributes this fall to a drop in housing starts over recent years.

installation and a lack of attention to good building practice. Inspectors had found it impossible to hold a conversation with a person either in the master bedroom or in the lounge downstairs without difficulty, and the judge deemed that this problem was serious enough for him to consider the property unfit for the purpose for which it had been bought, as a family home. Technicians reported that major remedial works, or the relocation of the bathroom next door would be necessary, neither of which were viable. The judge therefore decided that the only fair course of action was to dissolve the contract and order the return of the money paid for the house, plus compensation.

People with higher incomes, of up to €71,007.20 will be entitled to progressively reduced rebates. This excludes only 2.7 per cent of taxpayers. The top annual deduction base is to be expanded from €4,000 to €6,750, with the maximum relief for the taxpayer to reach €1,350 (20 per cent of €6,750). According to vice president Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, these measures were due to be announced in Cabinet on April 29th, as they are to be included in a new employment decree to be adopted by the Government.

Wootton Bassett: The Town That Remembers

The behind-the-scenes story of the town of Wootton Bassett, whose tributes to fallen soldiers have earned the community the first royal title awarded in over one hundred years.

T

here’s something for everyone in this batch of songs, from Belgium’s a capella performance to Denmark’s indie rock - and even an appearance from a Bulgarian version of Pink!

The UK’s entry is world famous group Blue. Speaking about the song ‘I Can’, Duncan James of Blue explained, “Me and Lee were in the studio just before Christmas, and we wrote a song that sounded like it would be perfect for a World Cup soundtrack.” The song, an anthemic number, is dedicated to the idea of possibility and triumph. However Duncan, Lee, Simon and Antony encountered a major hiccup. “There isn’t actually a World Cup until 2014,” noted Lee Ryan. “So we thought: Olympics? That’s not until 2012.” And then an unusual suggestion dropped on their electronic doormat from the BBC. Would Blue like to take part in the Eurovision song contest, as The UK’s representatives? The idea took some shape in the minds of Blue. Is it madness or genius? The Irish entry is Jedward - AKA brothers John and Edward Grimes - the singing pop duo who became a huge hit after appearing on the UK’s X-Factor in 2009. Known for their distinctive blonde quiffs and unique performances, the identical twins have succeeded in being one of the most successful acts ever to have taken part in the talent competition. So let us all see who the 2011 winner will be!

Property News: Loan availability

Tough mortgages

D If your career feels stale…

… give it a fresh lift ! J

ust because there’s a recession, don’t stick your head in the sand and stay in a job that’s boring and pays far less than you’re worth.

There’s a dynamic company here in Tenerife that is growing - and you could grow with it. You don’t need experience, as full training is part of the package, and the talents you already possess could be the ones that literally change your life around…

 Recruiting right now Club La Costa Resorts & Hotels is a leading developer and operator of high quality holiday and leisure products with resorts worldwide, including four on the island, which first began business back in 1984. While other companies may be downsizing, or even going out of business, Club La Costa’s continuing fast pace expansion, adding resorts in new destinations, is creating fresh and exciting opportunities for those ready to make a career switch.

 Holiday consultants Would helping people discover a route to luxurious holidays appeal more than what you are doing right now? Do you enjoy meeting, talking and listening to people from all walks of life? You may never have worked in

a sales environment before, but if you consider yourself energetic and eager to learn there’s no limit to what you might earn and achieve. Many of Club La Costa’s senior managers began their careers on the sales floor.

 Surprise yourself As you’re still reading, chances are you have some or all of what it takes to be part of a vibrant team; so pick up the phone today to arrange an interview and find out. There’s a guaranteed €1,000 a month for up to three months as you train, with opportunities to easily double, triple, quadruple this and beyond, with generous commissions paid - and there’s no hard sell or cold calling involved. At Club La Costa you’ll be joining a staff of more than 2,000 men and women committed to giving service excellence that exceeds its customers’ expectations; and obviously appearances matter when representing a company with a well regarded reputation to protect, to the public. Itching to go? You can call 922 162 871 for an information pack, fax your CV to 922 71 23 33 or email it to kinder.singh@clublacosta.com But please note: no ostriches need apply! (See ad on page 51)

o the builders know something we don’t? Despite the drop in the number of mortgages given out in Februar y, the numbers of building permits applied for were up. Banks are making it increasingly tough to borrow money and decisions that used to be made by your local branch manager are now being made at a higher level. In February, only 50,361 credits were authorised, 8.8 per cent less than 2010, according to statistics released by the National Statistics Institute (INE). This is the tenth consecutive reduction in the number of loans conceded. The average loan across the country was €122,749, up 4.1 per cent on last year and the savings banks gave out 50.8 per cent of the loans in comparison to the banks, 37.2 per cent. In the Canaries 3,254 mortgage loans were approved for a total of €362,521. Despite the reduction in the number of loans given out and the large amount of unsold properties dotting the country, construction continues and 7.5 per cent more building permits were issued in the first two months compared with last year.

Divorce settlement

Court mortgage decision

I

n a recent groundbreaking ruling, the Spanish Supreme Court has ruled that in the event of divorce, a home mortgage must be repaid in equal shares by both spouses. The decision follows a case taken by an ex-husband who was told by the Valencian Provincial Court that he would be liable to pay 80 per cent of the mortgage repayments due to his economic situation, and further that the mortgage was part of his alimony payment. However, according to El Pais newspaper, the Spanish Supreme Court has ruled on appeal that there was contradictory jurisprudence on the subject at the provincial level, and decided to set a legal precedent by establishing that payments on a loan entered into by both spouses fall under the joint responsibilities of the community property regime, which makes both parties equally bound regardless of income.

Property in Brief >>

Spain top for bank bargains The numbers of prospective property buyers searching for bank repossessions reached record levels during the first quarter of this year, according to leading websites, primelocation and propertyinspain.net. Evidence is also strong that these enquiries from all over Europe are being seriously followed up by purchasers searching for good deals, and interest in such property in Spain has increased by 43 per cent, compared to a one per cent rise in interest for property in France. Property in Brief >>

Bargains for Trekkies and Shrekkies Cartagena is a port city in the region of Murcia, where massive investments from the United States and China are likely to completely transform this relatively unknown area. Hollywood’s Paramount Studios thinks Murcia is the best place in the world for their €1 billion Star Trek and Shrek theme park, which should attract five million Trekkies and Shrekkies, and is expected to open in 2015. There will also be new motorways, international airports, shopping malls, and ten new hotels and leisure resorts funded and built by Chinese investors. Of course, the Spanish banks are taking full advantage of this activity to offload their unwanted property assets. Beach front and golf course bargains, ready to move into, abound with up to 80 per cent discounts and 100 per cent mortgages, without doubt the best deals in Spain.

UNBELIEVABLE PRICE!

WELCOME WHERE SHOPPING IS AN ART YOUR BEST SHOPPING OPTION

P

ut some balance back in your life with the Hush Puppies Body

Shoe collection for men and

women which are all athletic on the inside

and casual yet smart on the outside and feature Hush Puppies unique new comfort

system which effectively enhances the walk-

ing motion and makes it easier, not harder, to walk.

The Body Shoe is engineered with Hush Puppies trademarked Bio Bevel technology which is a bevelled heel and toe which increase walking efficiency by encouraging an easier, smoother and more natural walking motion, meaning you will move more and you will move healthier. Exceptional fit is achieved by using anatomically precise moulds so that every Body Shoe properly envelops the foot for ultimate comfort. Multi-density footbeds with Ortholite foam in the foot arch and Poron foam in the heel and ball of the foot provide complete support and enhanced cushioning. An advanced climate control system composed of Drilex footbeds wicks away moisture and reduces heat build up, keeping the foot

cool, dry and comfortable, ideal for the Canary Islands. David Bok, Vice President of Hush Puppies Global Product Development, comments, “With so many brands out there selling footwear that will ‘rock you fit’, ‘put a gym in your shoes’ or ‘wobble’ your health issues away, we saw a need for shoes which are not gimmicky but rather have a real and positive effect on the wearer’s health.”

Primark

Primark’s “look good, pay less” slogan seems to have paid off. In the 24-week period ending March 5th 2011, the Irish fashion chain’s overall sales have increased by 11 per cent. José Luis Martínez de Larramendi, Director of Primark España, commented, “the growth in our sales is the result of our expansion strategy through the opening of new stores. Sales here have increased by three per cent compared with the same period of last year.

Most of the models we normally see advertised are purely for casual wear, so what if you need to look at least vaguely smart? Try Hush Puppies. For women, there are sandals, sneakers and shoes, with or without straps, and with a low or medium heel. For men there are flat lace-ups, pull-ons, sandals with or without straps, and casual boots. All come in a variety of sizes and colours. Hush Puppies are available from quality multi-brand stores throughout Spain, in El Corte Inglés stores or online at www. hushpuppies.com.

Water for Elephants

The Music:

What’s another year? By Clio O’Flynn

M

Donovan, Patti Smith in GC

y colleagues know it’s time to hide when I start to hum the inane tune that precedes the annual festival that is as much a pedestal to kitsch as it is to music. But I can’t help myself. Drama Synopsis:A veterinary student abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.

Arthur 3:

The war of the two worlds

Family fantasy, Synopsis: Arthur must find a way to stop the Evil M once and for all.

Priest

Year after year I and thousands of others moan about the winners/voting system/political back-stabbing/poor entries from our respective home countries, and year after year we forget our cynicism and gear up for another Eurovision Song Contest. And I really do find that each year I can convince myself that this year ‘we’ (in my case Ireland or Spain) just might have a chance. Actually, if the contest ever decided to drop the country by country voting, the incredibly cheesy tri-lingual and dreadfully un-spontaneous quips between the presenters, not to mention the range of jolly happy jury reps from around Europe, the contest would lose much of its attraction. And that’s not even starting on the quality of the songs. Are the national songs chosen by ‘the people’ any better than those picked by a panel of professionals (who you often feel should know better)? Probably not. And why do some countries fail year after year, whether they’re going for an international pop feel or a cultural ballad? Are they trying too hard, or do they just not fit in to the Eurovision profile? A bit of both perhaps.

Amaury Vassili  who sings for France

Who knows, and really we shouldn’t care. If you’re going to watch it over-indulge, get into the spirit of the thing, forget about taste and standards, and enjoy. The semi-finals are on May 10th and 12th, the final on May 14th. The current favourite seems to be France, but as usual I’ll be rooting for Ireland (come on Jedward) and a few ‘douze points’. Now, all together, “La la la la la la la…………”

he Imperial Ice Stars bring Swan Lake on Ice to the Tenerife Auditorium Adán Martín in Santa Cruz from 25th to 29th May, and tickets are now on sale. The stars of ice have performed for three million people across five continents and have toured Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, UK, Germany, Spain, Holland, France, Belgium, Finland, Monaco, South Africa, Canada, Russia, and even Cyprus where they performed in an outdoor amphitheatre in temperatures of 40ºC. Some of the dancers started skating from as young as the age of four, and between them they have won over 250 competition medals.

The Imperial Ice Stars began in 2004 as a joint venture between two leading producers of live entertainment, Tony Mercer and James Cundall, and businessman and former speed-skater Vladislav Onenin. The technical team behind the Imperial Ice Stars have perfected the art of creating on-stage ice rinks to provide the ideal skating surface for the performers. Two chillers, over 16 kilometres of refrigeration pipes and 600 gallons of water are used to create 14 tonnes of ice, all in the space of 34 hours. Exhilarating and dazzling, this show is not to be missed. For performance times and ticket prices, go to www. auditoriodetenerife.com

Best chef in the Canaries

Piñeyro walked home with €1,500 and won top marks from the jury for her two dishes. Chefs were asked to prepare one set dish, squid, and were given a free hand for their second dish, with the winner preparing a pork plate to the delight of the judges. Second and third respectively were Margarita Ray, from Tenerife and José Manuel Sedes from Fuerteventura taking home prizes of €1,000 and €600 respectively. Kimberly Dominguez, who actually works with the winning chef, was voted best sous-chef. Tenerife Cabildo vice-president José Manuel Bermúdez congratulated the winners and all who took part commenting on their “talent and creativity”, referring to Canarian gastronomy as “a fundamental part not just of our tourism but of our culture”. Organised as part of the Agrocanarias trade fair, ten chefs took part with each competitor having up to 90 minutes to prepare their dishes for the jury.

Bonnets and bunnies K9 open day

K

9 held an Open Day on Easter Sunday, and despite the somewhat cloudy weather there was a healthy turn out by an international public. Kids and adults were allowed to tour the facilities, and there were more than a few pleas to bring home a puppy/cat or two. Outside the smaller visitors were particularly well catered for with a lucky dip, a treasure map (won by Maisy) and an Easter Bonnet competition, which Island Connections’ editor helped to judge, and which was won by Lily Montanari, whose quite excellent hat was worn with balance and pride. The total raised on the day was €651 and K9 would like to express their gratitude for the assistance given by all the volunteers, to the providers of prizes, and to the general

public for supporting the event. The Easter Raffle raised €1,835 and the winners were Easter Hamper – Pat, Tapas Lunch at Sinatra’s Bar – Wendy, Bottle of gin – Von, bottle of whisky – Shell, bottle of Martini – Huckerby, small hamper – Kerry. The organisation also want to thank the management and staff of Iceland for allowing volunteers to sell raffle tickets to their customers in the two weeks leading up to Easter Sunday. K9’s Mikey told us, “it was also nice to listen to several stories about dogs and cats that had been re-homed and are now loving members of the family. Thanks to all those who bought tickets, you are all winners, and though you cannot all have a prize, please be assured your contribution is very much appreciated by the four legged, wet nose brigade at the kennels”.

Canines on show

The XXIV National Dog Show incorporating the XV International Dog Show, under the rules of the Royal Spanish Canine Society, is taking place in Santa Cruz on May 14th and 15th.

The organisation’s Tenerife branch is hosting the event which will feature pure bred races - Boxers, Dogo Canario, Canarian Greyhounds, French Bulldogs, and mixed showings of Bedlington Terriers, Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Kerry Blues in one group and American Staffordshire Chihuahuas, Griffons, Lhasa Apsos, Shihtzus and others. The show is on in the Recinto Ferial, the islands’ trade fair centre in Santa Cruz. More information from the society, http://www.sociedadcaninadetenerife.es/

Eavesdropping

Ask and you shall receive

A

new study carried out in the University of Milan has proved something that a lot of us dog owners have known for a long time – that in many ways canines are more clever than we may think.

While we have observed our dogs reacting to other animals and humans in very individualistic ways as well as displaying quick learning skills, the new study shows that dogs also learn from observing the behaviour of humans, a trait found in very few animals to date. During the course of the study a dog was allowed to observe how different humans reacted when asked to share food. One human was begging from two others, one of whom was much more inclined to share than the other. When the dogs were then re-

May 14th and 15th will be a special day for pig lovers as there will be a fair dedicated to the black Canarian pig at the Pinolere Parque Etnográfico in La Orotava. Through words and pictures as well as face

to face meeting with the pigs, visitors will learn all about the history, life style, habits and breeding of these animals as well as delightful ways to prepare the meat from these animals to your gourmet satisfaction.

Dates for your diary leased from their leads, two thirds went directly to the human who was sharing to look for a treat.

important source of information in decision-making processes... We assessed whether dogs, Canis familiaris, were capable of discerning a generous versus selfish food-sharing interaction between humans, and investigated which communicative cues (voice versus gestures) may be more salient for them. Importantly a control condition was included to ascertain whether it was in fact the interaction between individuals as opposed to the direct actions of the actors that the dogs evaluated. We found that the dogs were capable of eavesdropping on human food-sharing interactions, and vocal communication was par-

ticularly important to convey the human’s cooperative versus non-cooperative intent”, in other words the dogs were eavesdropping on the conversation rather than processing the actions they observed. Commenting on the findings, Dr Marshall-Pescini of Milan University, said, “We already know about the impressive skills of canines, but it is quite another thing to draw conclusions about people’s characters by merely observing how they treat each other. We believe these skills have developed as a special asset during the domestication process rather than being a carry-over of similar tendencies within a pack.”

On Tuesday 10th May there will be a benefit evening with Suzy Q, Pip Brown, Sweet Temptations, Avril Taylor, Aidy Evans, and John Ashford, with more to be confirmed. Prize raffle, good company and of course a fund raiser for the Live Arico dogs.

Health care Dear Editor

I

know that loads of people are sick of hearing about health care, but with elections coming up isn’t it a good idea to remind politicians that education and health are two of the basic pillars of a decent society. I had to recently attend my local doctor as I have a re-growth of a sebaceous cyst that was surgically removed two and a half years ago. In fact I was operated on twice as the cyst had become infected, in no small part due to the fact that I was waiting for a call from Candelaria to carry out the operation for more than a year. As it is re-emerging I asked my doctor to re-initiate the process for a removal. She filled out the appropriate forms and sent me to reception to request an appointment with El Mojon, to see a consultant. The first available date? March 2012. OK, I know that this may not seem urgent, but again I’m going to have to wait a year before I even get to see a consultant, who will no doubt then put me on a waiting list again for a further consultation in Candelaria. I’m not taking the chance of further infection so I’m going to pay for a private consultation and be done with it. It’s not a very healthy state of affairs now is it? Yours sincerely V McCann, Adeje

called ‘mail compromiso’. I asked where this ‘new’ contract had been signed as I know fully well I have not signed a bill with them. I was told a Movistar shop. So can anyone tell me which Movistar shop is open on New Year’s Day? I told them to cancel this immediately and return my money. Needless to say the same thing happened the following month. Again I rang 1004 and demanded that this service stop – it hasn’t. I am currently going through the Defensor del Cliente to get my money back. Then on March 1st I was billed twice. I spoke to the ‘nice’ people at 1004 again and was told the second bill was for mini internet on my mobile, €16.55 per month. Why would I want an internet service on my mobile, I have internet facilities at home and at work. I told them to cancel this service and also cancelled the direct debit with the bank. Problem solved. Not quite, in the middle of March I was billed for the same amount so I cancelled the service again as well as the direct debit with the bank. But I was billed again at the beginning of April, this time for €13.57 – apparently I was given a discount!

Telefonica rip-off Dear Editor

A

nyone who has a mobile contract with Movistar, or Telefonica as they prefer to be known these days, are well advised to check their bills carefully and also their bank statements to see what this company is actually taking out of their accounts on a monthly basis. In February of this year I noticed that the amount taken from my account was more than usual, but never received a bill from the mobile company. I rang 1004 to query it. I was informed that on 1st January that I signed a new contract with them for a service to be added to my bill

n today’s world the art of dental implants is about a lot more than simply replacing teeth, it’s about improving your dental health and giving you a confident smile, important for our physical as well as mental well being! Obviously it’s hugely important that your new teeth work as they should – that your ability to bite and chew is excellent, but it’s also vital that your implants add to your overall oral health and are aesthetically pleasing. The world of false teeth, the one where your grandparents took out their teeth at night, the cartoon world of the glass of water with a full mouth of pearly whites by the bed – this is past tense. Today’s top dental clinics are working to ensure that your implants don’t just look a lot better than false teeth, but feel better too, feel like your own teeth and that you feel as good as you possibly can once they have been implanted. A tooth implant is the best solution for a missing tooth,

 Rat (1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008) Plans that have been in the making for a long time, may finally translate into reality. If you make some money, try to keep it and do not spend it on unnecessary stuff.  Ox (1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009) You have to be really patient now! Your traditional methods are being questioned by your colleagues more and more. Don’t opt for changes now if you can avoid it.  Tiger (1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998) There are some opportunities for you out there – but you have to be quick. Any delay will bring disappointment. However, do not risk too much!  Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999) There may be some curious coincidences and other signs that suggest that mysterious forces are at work now. Use your intuition to keep things going.  Dragon (1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000) Even if you are normally not interested in exotic activities, you may now feel a yearning to do something really extraordinary. Why not trying something new?  Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001) To advance in your career, be aware, that vital information that would help you may lie at your fingertips. Take a close look to find what you need to get your goal.

and certainly goes a long way towards creating the right visual impression. A beaming smile is diminished if there are toothy gaps, which is where implants come into their own, recreating the smile you may have lost. There are other advantages too – cavities and decay are not an issue when it comes to your ‘new’ teeth. Dental decay and missing teeth are not simply aesthetic problems either, but affect your ability to eat properly too. When the jawbone isn’t strong enough to hold a nor-

mal implant special implants can also be prepared. A bone transplant is another possibility to be considered in some cases. Obviously the first consideration will always be to save the existing tooth before any thought of implants, but when that’s not an option a good dentist will integrate your implants into your existing set of teeth giving you the best of both dental worlds, and with it a new lease of self confidence and more than a few reasons to smile again.

Hello everyone,

 Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002) This is a favourable time for you, with several opportunities for self-improvements. If you feel the positive influence is beginning to wane, do not expect it to return.

I

We were joined by two more pals Val Richardson, and Gavin Nicholas, and two ladies I’d not met before, but were bundles of fun, and who, I later found out, were the coowners of Tipsy Terrace in Los Gigantes. We were welcoming Gavin back from England, and I must say, he looked fabulously rested and happy, and were saying goodbye to Val who is off to the UK for the summer months. We reminisced on the days,

about 19 years ago, when we arrived here and all the entertainers met every Friday for the whole day as Friday was traditionally our day off. I carried a huge bag full of board games in the boot of my banger, and we had such a great time. Then they began to pair off, the babies came, and the numbers dwindled. And sadly, most of them have now left the island. But they were very innocent and extremely enjoyable years in the early days.

odd facts, I was amazed when my friend Jan pointed out to me that this coming July will have five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays. This happens between five and ten years, and the next one will be in 2016, then 2022, and then 2033. I love these little snippets of information. John from Bournemouth Island loves to read Connections on line, and emailed me to tell me of a funny story that appeared in his local newspaper.

Val and I were talking about trying to do something along those lines as we’re all losing touch apart from meeting for the odd coffee. For those of you who like

Apparently a minister from a local chapel parked his car in a no-parking zone because he was short of time and couldn’t find a space with a meter. He put a note under the wind-

 Sheep (1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003) You may resent having to come to terms with new methods of working that you mistrust. Make yourself clear what you feel about the current situation.  Monkey (1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004) Take care not to stretch the bounds of accepted convention too far. If you do so, you may make it to the top – even if your methods are quite unconventional.  Rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005) Career prospects follow an uneven path these weeks. Maybe it would be advisable to adopt a more traditional approach to your projects in future.  Dog (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006) You should be well enough in touch with reality not to fall for any get-rich-quick schemes now! Concentrate on your personal relationships to avoid problems.  Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007) Sometimes it is nicer to observe the drama that is surrounding you instead of being in the middle of the fight. Be content not to be in the eye of the storm. The Chinese solar year starts around the 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.

shield wiper that read: “I am a minister, and I have circled the area ten times. If I don’t park here, I’ll be late for a funeral. ‘Forgive us our trespasses’.” When he returned, he found a ticket from a traffic warden along with this note “I’ve circled this area for 10 years. If I don’t give you a ticket I’ll lose my job. ‘Lead us not into temptation’” which proves that even Traffic Wardens can have a sense of humour. And speaking of a good sense of humour, thank you all for the emails regarding the exercise I always mean to take but never get around to doing. Mike Byatt said “Katy, the best time to exercise is first thing

in the morning. Do it then, before your brain realises what your body is doing.” And Mel Dyke said that she was going to exercise because she’s got very flabby thighs, but then she didn’t bother as her tummy covered them anyway. Joanna doesn’t like exercising because it makes the ice jump out of her glass; and as for me, the only reason I would take up exercising, would be so that I could hear heavy breathing!!!!! Until next time, enjoy yourselves, and take care of each other.

T

he new Mitsubishi ASX contains 100 per cent Mitsubishi technology, all-terrain efficiency and is designed with the environment in mind.

This compact model stands out for its ‘jet fighter’ style chrome trimmed front grille. Impressive to drive, the ASX also offers an incredible amount of high quality interior space. Less than a year after its successful introduction in Europe, the Mitsubishi ASX confirmed the excellence of its engineering with the Euro NCAP crash test results for 2011, a 5-Star achievement which will add to its many virtues. Its impressive results included: Adult occupant 86 per cent, Child occupant 78 per cent, Pedestrian 60 per cent and Safety assist 71 per cent. This high level of built-in passive safety is due to a very comprehensive safety package and body design. These measures (and more) complement Mitsubishi Motors’ proprietary RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution). RISE is meant to integrate and interconnect structural elements

Mitsubishi ASX > for active passenger protection in an accident. This design brings dramatic advances in multi-directional impact safety performance, dispersing energy loads during front, side and rear crashes and controlling distortion. The very good pedestrian safety rating results from the implementation of items such as bonnet design featuring a double bulge (creating a crushable zone for pedestrians), open section construction of the windscreen support, plastic front wings and energy absorbing front bumper. The new ASX also offers a full range of active and passive safety devices, including Active Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill Start Assist system, ABS, Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist, Emergency Stop Signal system, and up to seven airbags. The range consists mostly

of 2WD models (front wheels), with AWC electronically controlled 4WD offered on the 1.8 DiD. The choice of Euro V engines includes the 1.6 litre 115bhp petrol, (CO2 135g/km) with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and the 1.8 litre 147bhp DiD turbodiesel with a six-speed manual transmission (CO2 145 g/km or 150 g/km on the 4x4). Features such as Automatic Stop and Go, electric power steering, low rolling resistance tyres, regenerative brakes, low viscosity oil, LED lighting and weight reduction measures all contribute to the ASX’s excellent emissions and economy. Standard equipment includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, Automatic Stop and Go, Active Stability Control and Traction Control, aux-in jack, keyless entry, ABS with EBD and Brake

Assist, dual stage front side and curtain airbags, driver’s knee airbag, and tilt and telescopic steering column. The ASX 3 gains fully automatic air conditioning, one touch starting, cruise control, heated seats, privacy glass, audio wheel controls, Bluetooth™, leather covered steering wheel and gearshift knob, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, and chrome exterior detailing. The ASX 4 gains leather seats and Kenwood incar entertainment incorporating iPod control, sat nav and a reversing camera. This vehicle comes with a five year guarantee, and it’s in the Canaries now, priced from ₏19,550. More information is available from www. mitsubishicanarias.com or your nearest branch of Rahn.

on Spain’s roads with driving distractions in mind. Of these, 3,387 drivers were reported for using a mobile phone manually, 169 for using earphones to listen to music and 607 for other distractions. Officers also stopped drivers who were seen manipulating their navigation systems whilst driving, a distraction comparable to talking on the phone. In 24 per cent of the vehicles stopped, drivers were using hands-free phone equipment. Despite the fact that this is a legal practice, it provokes a loss of concentration and drivers failed to maintain a constant speed, their reaction time was greater and their safe stopping distance was insufficient. Distractions are one of the main causes of accidents, the majority of which could easily be avoided. Of the 329 fatal accidents recorded in Spain up to April 14th, 48 per cent were caused by lack of attention.

Renault has been the unique official automotive manufacturer partner of this festival for the last 28 years. From May 11 to 22, 2011 the glittering diamond of the elegantly styled Renault Latitude notchback will be the focus of photographers as the car escorts actors and personalities to the feet of the famous red carpeted stairs.

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 642 :: 06/05/2011 - 19/05/2011

By George Reed

Fight night at London’s O2 Arena P

rofessional boxers, with a few rare and honourable exceptions, are not generally noted for their academic brains and articulate use of language.

One exception active on the fight scene at present is Welshman Nathan Cleverly, Britain’s number one light heavyweight. The Caerphilly-born brain-box graduated last year with a mathematics degree from Cardiff University, and even as he was studying up to six hours a day at exam times, he was progressing in the professional boxing game, but finding it difficult at times, having to treat boxing as a hobby, as he was only in the gym part-time. He turned professional when he was 18 at the beginning of his university days and for the first couple of years he was a bit of a playboy, living the life of a student, by going out with the boys, drinking and partying, yet in those two years he racked up 11 victories in the ring without losing. He soon decided to stop ‘burning the candle at both ends’, settle down, and take his boxing more seriously, while completing his education, so that he had something to fall back on when his boxing days were over. Two fights later in only his 13th professional contest he was the Commonwealth champion, beating the English veteran Tony Oakey on points over 12 hard fought rounds. At 22 years of age he added the British light heavyweight crown to his collection, when he stopped the unbeaten English champion Danny McIntosh in seven rounds. Then last September he looked sensational, when the Welshman who is normally a cagey stylist, stood toe-totoe and dominated a war against the highly rated Karo Murat, who he stopped late in the fight. This exciting style, character, and grit, added to the growing list of attributes of the talented Nathan Cleverly, who I wrote an article about when he was due to fight the German WBO light heavyweight world champion Jurgen Brähmer for his title belt at Wembley Arena on April 2nd. However the promotion has been rescheduled for May 21st. Cleverly may be rated below world champion Brähmer in the light heavyweight division, but he’s an intelligent fighter who uses his brain in the ring, and his power is coming on in leaps and bounds. I expect Cleverly to use his boxing brain in the early part of the fight and come on strong in the latter rounds against the rough, tough, bad boy of German boxing, who at present is out on bail, having appealed against a 16month sentence for hitting a woman last year, and leaving her with injuries to her face. I believe the decision will be a victory on points for Cleverly, to carry the flag once again for Wales, after Joe Calzaghe’s retirement, and lead the way for the next wave of British boxing talent, including the 2007 world amateur champion Frankie Gavin, welterweight Kell Brook, who is my personal favourite, and Olympic champion super middleweight James DeGale who appears to be everyone’s choice for world title honours.

All not lost for Tenerife? Schadenfreude?

D

espite the mountain that needs to be climbed on the pitch, officials at Tenerife are cautiously optimistic that a solution to the club’s relegation plight may emerge off the field of play.

Although it may just be a case of wishful thinking, several sources at the Heliodoro Rodríguez stadium have hinted late that Tenerife might still stay up if the Football League punishes another second division side for debts by ordering it to drop down a division. According to the rules, any Is there any way out of the drop? club not fully up to date with players’ wages on 31 July is automatically relegated and the place offered in the first instance to one of the clubs already relegated as a result finishing in the bottom four. To take advantage of the offer, Tenerife would need to agree to pay off all the offending club’s arrears, but the price would be a small fraction of the cost of having to begin the climb out of the semi-professional ranks of Division 2B. The fact that the option is already being suggested may indicate that Tenerife is aware of financial problems elsewhere, although no names have been mentioned yet.

Marlins win baseball cup

O

ne of Spain’s up and coming football clubs has been taken over by a Dubai consortium, which has promised to inject massive funds to consolidate it in the top flight. After several weeks of speculation, Royal Emirates Group confirmed it had agreed the purchase of Getafe FC, the smallest of the premiership sides in the Madrid area. The consortium says it hopes, among other things, to use Getafe to promote Arab footballers in Spain. Getafe join Malaga and Santander as the only clubs in the top flight to be taken over by foreign investors in recent times.

Baseball

Baseball side Tenerife Marlins have won the Spanish Cup for the third year in a row to consolidate their position as one of the top clubs in the country.

The Puerto de la Cruz outfit beat arch-enemies Sant Boi in an incidentpacked final, which was brought to an early end by a torrential downpour that made the field unplayable. The Marlins were leading 5-3 at the time but during the rain recess the Baseball Federation ruled that Sant Boi had fielded an ineligible player and awarded the match 9-0 to the Canarians. In the semis, the Marlins beat league leaders Barcelona. Yoel Hernández from the Marlins was voted the MVP of the Final Four tournament, which was held in Burlada (Navarra).

Solange sets Olympics goal

Portugal but has lived in Fuerteventura since she was a young girl, is running out of opponents in her age-group events, which range from the 1500 metres to cross country. She has already won three Spanish Under-23 championships this year, adding to her European crowns of a couple of years ago, gained in Lithuania and Ireland. A final year student of physical education, she wants to continue on to full-time athletics after graduating and has set her sights on competing in the Olympics in the not too distant future, although she is aware that there are several top middle-distance runners ahead of her in the pecking order in Spain at present.

as Palmas midfielder Guayre’s fall from grace since his heyday at Villarreal, where he played in the Champions League a few seasons ago, continues, this time in the form of a driving ban.

The 30-year-old, who has struggled to hold down a place this season, was arrested after a traffic incident in the Gran Canaria capital and pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence of drink. Fined €1,800 and disqualified for one year, he also faces disciplinary action from his club for his late night escapade. Apologising publicly to fans, Guayre, once the hottest property in Canarian football and a former Spain international, said he had let himself and Las Palmas down badly with his behaviour and vowed to make sure people talked about him “only for his football not his off the field life” in future.

La Liga off to a flyer S

Over 35s summary

occer Experience’s newly named La Liga open age Thursday and Friday evening league has just got underway and the new season seems to be picking up just where the old style Masters league left off! With one of the closest 7s leagues thus far just finished, we can only hope this season brings us more of the same.

La Liga summary With some movement going on in the Soccer Experience transfer market in recent weeks all teams are looking to get a positive start and after just two weeks we can already see some potential challengers. Exiles Masters led by captain Blair, who narrowly missed out last season, have bounced back tremendously and sit at the top after two games. Exiles who conceded a few too many big game goals last season looked to have strengthened the back and now look to be real title contenders, along with runners up last season, the Spartans, who were only pipped to the post on the final day. They too have had a great start and look in good form from the off this season as do

Exiles Bar captain Blair Macrorie showing why his team has started so well in the new La Liga 7s open league

Spanish Style who have been terrific in previous seasons and look to go one or two places further and seem to now have the strength and depth to pull it off. Taylors who once again are finding themselves grinding out wins when form has not always been on their side, are proving to be one of the hardest teams to beat. These are but just a few of the early pace setters but at this early stage just a couple of back to back wins changes everything so it is all to play for!

T

he Amlin Challenge Cup Final takes place on Friday May 20th in Cardiff City Stadium, when Harlequins take on Stade Francais Paris and is the prelude to the Heineken Cup Final on Saturday May 21st, which sees the two best teams in Europe, Leinster and the Northampton Saints, compete in the Millennium Stadium for the right to be called Champions of Europe.

Championship summary League leaders Linekers are bouncing back to their best form this season as they have once again opened up a six point lead over the nearest rivals and with goals coming with such ease at the moment it’s hard to see anyone stopping them. Tenerife Solicitors still sit in second spot despite dropping three points recently and will need to hit their very best form to stand a real chance of catching the leaders. Pueblo Torviscas, the reigning title holders, are having an up and down season thus far as another three points have been dropped at the hands of Bar Exiles who pick up their first points of the season and will look to move up the table in the coming weeks with the confidence gained from that win.

Megabowl Compiled by Doreen Lemm de cotta mckenna & santafé English Lawyers and Spanish Abogados

Big Phil’s Scruffy Macs still sit top of the pile with a commanding 10 point lead over nearest rivals LA Veterans and with just a handful of games left look to have the title within their grasp. However holding that top spot means the chasing pack are giving that little extra in every game and the leaders lost their undefeated record last week at the hands of Darren’s Ironcraft side who will be kicking themselves that they couldn’t start the season the same way they are finishing it. Scruffys will have to work for it to claim the prize. LA Veterans kept up their hopes for a second title with another win as they need to win every game until the end of the season to stand a chance and hope for a Scruffy Macs slip up.

New 7s teams needed If you or some friends fancy joining one of the leagues, Soccer Experience need new teams for the Monday night Championship open age group league or the Tuesday slow motion over 35s league. The new La Liga is also an open aged league so any of you younger guys who can only play on a Thursday or Friday evening, please get in touch.

Víctor Gutiérrez and the team in Tenerife

Martial arts master Víctor Gutiérrez was in Tenerife recently to oversee first hand a training course for a number of monitors in The Wing Revolution, a branch of the combat sport.

T

he courses began last September and use methods approved by the International monitor training plan approved by the sport. According to Gutiérrez, “the main objective is to balance a qual-

ity training with technical, theoretical and teaching training specified in the WingFight cycle” and when they have completed the training these monitors will then be able to give individual and group classes in the discipline. Gutiérrez was invited to Tenerife by island coordinator Stefano Biagini, and at the end of a three day stay expressed himself extremely impressed with the progress of the Tenerife team.

CD Tenerife

Question of when not if It is very difficult to comprehend just how these same players thrilled us with great football just a couple of years ago. That season ended in a glorious promotion to the Primera Division amidst many accolades for the style of football played. Last season, despite measly spending by the club on bolstering the squad, the team bravely fought until the very last day of the campaign before eventually succumbing to relegation. Now, it is a shame that players from those successful times like Marc Bertrán, Dani Kome, Ricardo, Luna and Juanlu Hens will leave the club this summer though the backdoor. I say “in a way” because it is mainly their fault that they have brought the club to its knees and are about to rob the Island of its one and only professional football club. Players who can hold their heads high are goalkeeper Sergio Aragoneses, Pablo Sicilia and Nino, who deserves to have a statue erected outside the stadium after his years of service to CD Tenerife. A major clear out will start soon and as many as 20 of the 24 man squad will leave. The club faces a hectic summer of negotiations with players regarding their contracts. Quite simply the match against Villarreal B was a nonevent. The Tenerife support usually so partisan and vocal, were in the main blasé about the proceedings. An aura of resignation hung over the stadium and you felt that the crowd were just waiting for the home team to make errors. The first serious attack by the away side ended in a goal. Lago Falqué made a good run down the right wing and his low cross was met perfectly by Hernán Pérez. The blanquiazul reaction was more a case of

from the beautiful town of in the side played its part as confidence was sucked out of Granada. Results the previous day had gone against us with Salamanca winning an epic game 5:4 and Nastic de Tarragona winning 2:0 away, scoring both goals in injury time. Tenerife made changes and had brought along three youth players for the experience. Granada were slow out of the traps. Despite being in the play-off positions a crowd of only 7,500 turned up but the intense thunderstorm and hailstones prior to kick off deterred many, especially as the game was being shown live on television.

certain players giving it their best but not having the backup of the team as a whole. Nino often found himself as a lone figure up front as the midfield was slow to support. Natalio entered the pitch to groans and almost ironic laughter from the stands. How he can still get a game after his poor campaign is beyond the belief of many. One bright spark amongst the second half light drizzle was the reappearance of young striker (of Venezuelan origin) Josmar Zambrano. The twisty skillful local is the big blue and white hope for next season. It is a good job that we have something to look forward to! Tenerife attempted to equalise in the closing stages but it really was not happening. No conviction in the attacks. The nonchalant vibes from the stadium finally broke into spon-

taneous chants against the players, basically stating that “players come and go, managers come and go, directors come and go but the supporters will always be here”. At the final whistle the players trugged off and even the club’s theme tune failed to blare over the tannoy. That summed it all up really.

1/05/2011 Granada 2:1 CD Tenerife Every now and again you think perhaps the outcome of a Tenerife away day will be different. Chances of survival for the blanquiazules before the game were almost impossible but maybe we could salvage some pride against the high flying Andalusian outfit

The match turned out to be another Groundhog away day for the blanquiazules; control the game, play fairly well, take the lead, lose steam in second half, have a player sent off, drop heads, concede late goals, lose game. You can really sum up the away games with those short phrases. Pablo Sicilia opened the scoring for Tenerife after only eight minutes as he flicked on a Julio Álvarez free-kick. The lead was thoroughly deserved as Tenerife outplayed their rivals. It was obvious though that we needed another goal considering our lack of clean sheets this season. The second half was a different story as Granada set about Tenerife like a hurricane but despite some half chances the blanquiazules were matching the home outfit kick for kick. The changing point (and there always is one) was when Melli brought down a Granada player to earn his second yellow card of the game and Tenerife were down to ten men. The lack of a leader

the team and Granada were soon level, Ighalo scoring for the home team. There was really only one winner from that moment on. A slip by Marc Bertrán let in Collantes and his low cross was turned into his own net by David Prieto on 76 minutes. Tenerife did not have either the faith or the energy to react for the remainder of the match. It has been so frustrating to lose so many matches just by the odd goal. The contingent of travelling Tenerife fans (including several Armada Sur members) drifted away from the Los Cármenes Stadium
