We spoke to Mr and Mrs Turnbull and they told us their daughter’s frightening account of this sick attack. In the early hours of July 30, 20 year old Hannah went back to a new friend’s apartment for a pizza. Her mum said, “Hannah is not a good time girl”; she had come to Tenerife on a short working holiday for two months and had been introduced to Mr R.K. by friends of hers who worked in public relations. The man, who was also working in PR in the area, had just started work in a bar there, he hasn’t been seen in the area since.

After she’d eaten, she apparently told the man, “I’m going now” and bent down to adjust her shoes. He came over and kneed her in the face. “It wasn’t hard,” her mum told us, “there isn’t a mark on her and Hannah thought he was play fighting at first, but then he bit her back so hard that over a week later you can still see the marks of each individual tooth and also punched her arms. Then he went behind her and put his hands inside her mouth and said, ‘I’m going to give you a Chelsea smile’ and ripped her face open.”

Islanders whose animals and crops are dead, homes gutted and landscapes decimated, are furious at the “mishandling” of

Unusual promotion

Fuerteventura’s tourism board caught the attention of thousands of air passengers at various Spanish airports last this month with a daring publicity campaign.

Ex Spanish President, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, has returned to one of his favourite holiday spots, Lanzarote.

He shared a breakfast with local press in the Castillo de San José where he is holidaying for three weeks with his wife and daughters. Avoiding the mention of national politics, Zapatero repeated his admiration for the island and said he might be interested in buying something there if there was an interesting offer. Don’t be surprised if you see him jogging along the paths there, it’s his new hobby since he stopped playing basketball.

Actors and actresses dressed in swimwear and carrying beach bags wandered round the terminal buildings distributing postcards and information depicting the island’s

Lurid letters

A Lanzarote man who sexually abused a Norwegian tourist as she slept in bed has been jailed for six years following a bizarre trial in the Criminal Court in Las Palmas. Rosendo Díaz, 42, was convicted of entering the woman’s holiday apartment in Puerto del Carmen and taking advantage of her while she was sleeping. The court heard that the 56 year old woman woke up on realising that she was being touched intimately and began to shout for help. Her husband, who was in the apartment next door

The promotion campaign, which also highlighted the island’s sporting and leisure possibilities and included a competition to win a free stay at a hotel on the island, was staged at airports in Madrid, Santiago, Asturias, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and Bilbao and served its purpose, with photos of the actors making not only local papers but social networking sites as passengers posted messages reporting what they had just seen. with friends, ran to her aid and managed to detain the intruder until police arrived. During the trial, the defendant insisted he had been invited to the apartment by the Norwegian, who allegedly sent him suggestive notes in a bar earlier in the night. However, his version of events was dismissed as “chaotic and irrational” by judges, who rejected the possibility that the woman, who needed an interpreter at all times to talk to police and again in court, could have written lurid messages in Spanish. Moreover, waiters in the bar contradicted the defendant’s account that they had acted as go-betweens by passing the notes between the two.

rews of summer workers employed to, “watch for and eradicate fire risk” are still hard at it. For €700 a month, they were in the dreadful, exhausting, position of fighting an inferno with basic equipment and training. “It’s horrifying. We’re doing our best. I’ve got a new son. I keep wondering what’s left for him,” says Rayco Trujillo. “We desperately tried to stop it spreading, but needed air support! Then we were pulled back. It was ‘too dangerous’. I admit it, we cried”. The

were intentionally started. Police had “reasonable suspicion”, but everyone knew somebody had lit them. Arson as protest is an old tradition. The Spanish complained about “this unfortunate habit” 600 years ago. If you don’t get work with Tragsa, for example, and are very stupid, you light fires. “The Guardia Civíl has nothing to do. Where were they? Everyone knew this would happen. Permanent air provision is essential; the Cabildo said this was essential and imminent years ago. Why has nothing materialized? What happened to the funding?” asks Maria

in Las Hayas. The delayed arrival of air support also needs explaining. Islanders blame regional government, and as minister Soria pointed out, “it is advisable not to wait until the last minute to request help”. There were also some rumours about the wrong paperwork delaying the deployment of a helicopter, which we are looking into. An arsonist has apparently confessed, so there is no question of guilt there. But who mismanaged the result? The area around Roque Agando saw some of the fiercest flames

She was terrified.” Then his flatmate appeared and she became even more frightened because she thought they were both going to attack her”, but R.K.’s hold loosened on her and she was able to escape. Friends took her to the hospital and apart from the psychological damage, without cosmetic surgery this young pretty girl will be scarred for life. “When she called me she was

still hysterical and all I could make out was something ripped, I thought she was talking about her clothes and I thought, ‘my God, my daughter’s been raped’, but there was no sexual attack, he just leapt on her like an animal.” After giving the man’s name at the National Police headquarters she was able to identify him from a photo they had on file and the family have been told that there is a warrant out for his arrest. The Turnbulls told me that they believed he had family with a business in Los Cristianos. “I feel for the mother,” Mrs Turnbull af-

firmed, “but I hope if he turns up there she will turn him in. My daughter is convinced that if he hadn’t been interrupted she would have been killed and if he isn’t stopped he will kill somebody.” Island Connections hope to be able to release the full name of the aggressor as soon as the police give the go ahead. In the meantime, if you recognise the details of this individual, you are advised to contact the police and keep your distance. A family’s lives devastated by “an animal”

Coastal village in La Palma

Coastal law

T

here is new hope of a reprieve for some of the many small buildings threatened with demolition on La Palma’s coastline, and for similar beach and fishermen’s shack hamlets throughout the Canaries, after the recent announcement from Coast and Sea Sustainability director, Pablo Saavedra, about “special Canarian considerations”. Owners’ efforts to prevent demolition are often featured in local and national news, while the coastal authority, known locally as Costas, mercilessly demolishes and fines along Spain’s eight thousand miles of coastline. This is all in stark contrast to the previous decades of apparent unconcern for the law, which laudably and clearly states that where sea meets land is public property, accessible to all. Spain’s coast may belong to us all, but we may not build there or restrict access, even though it looked as if we might get away with it for quite a long time. The Coastal Act now being enforced was made law in 1988, but illegal devel-

Fingers crossed

opments continued mushrooming along Spain’s coastline, where the need for residential lots beside the sea for burgeoning expat communities, together with the compliance of local politicians, cranked development up to fever pitch. With town councils, who were supposedly responsible for restricting such illegal coastal development, turning a convenient blind eye, developers bought cheap, built cheap, sold fast and disappeared, leaving others to carry the can later. Can-carriers were generally foreign owners, innocent victims of dastardly foreign scoundrels, with the Mail and Express squeezing the last drops of righteous indignation and thinly veiled xenophobia out of the whole sorry tale in the late nineties.

In expat meccas Andalucia and Alicante, thousands of owners were left wondering why they ever listened to the nice Brummie who arranged dream retirement homes on the beach. One of the easiest ways to fleece somebody abroad is to use a fellow countryman, a fact that didn’t escape the fleecers but was apparently unthinkable to the fleeced and then unpalatable to the British press. The Canaries coastal problem is different and this difference is important and, to date, ignored. There are far fewer examples of large, purpose built tourist resorts or residential complexes illegally built on the 1,500 kilometres of Canarian coastline. While El Medano’s beach hotel is an example of the Canarian version of a carefree approach to planning

regulations, a good many of the threatened properties pre-date tourism and are there for entirely different reasons. Early Canarians settled inland, choosing areas with water and good agricultural and pasture land. Food production was the priority and the coast was no place to grow crops. Afishing they undoubtedly went, but they lived where their animals and crops were and went down to the coast to fish, not the other way round. Over the centuries, shacks were built out of whatever was to hand to house fishing boats and tackle left down by the sea and most of today’s illegal, Canarian coastal properties have their origins as fishermen’s shacks, as do most tourist resorts. Some were developed, but some weren’t and they grew very slowly, retaining their shanty town style, albeit fortified with cement

The Canaries coastal problem is different and this difference is important

and blocks and gentrified with electricity and running water. They may still house tackle and boats, but these days they also accommodate weekending families, often descendents of the fishermen, who are there to fish and relax. Some ‘shacks’ may be lived in full time. In difficult times, they provide cheap housing. Each island’s shack community situation is different. La Gomera now has none and El Hierro very few, but both Tenerife and La Palma have numerous examples. In La Palma they are at Fuencaliente, Tazacorte, Tijarafe and Puntagorda. Several, like the community, complete with bar and restaurant at Playa Nueva near Puerto Naos, have already been demolished and this news sadly comes too late to save Playa Nueva’s picturesque shanty town and all the others that have been flattened. Canarian shack owners fight hard to prevent demolition, but their pleas for a special, historical assessment have fallen on deaf ears until now. Pablo Saavedra’s announcement implies that the authorities may have come to their senses and will hopefully sustain the embattled, and in some cases impoverished, own-

ers, who have spent life savings to fight demolition orders. The surprise, and very welcome, ray of hope came from Saavedra during his recent visit to capital Santa Cruz de La Palma to review work in progress at a beach area project. He explained that the draft reform of the Coastal Act, “will make provision for special regulations for the Canary islands”, and in particular, “for all those urban areas which had an easement protection zone of a hundred metres, and which also counted with a consolidated urban situation, approved before the earlier laws adopted in 1988. “These areas, which can’t at this point be designated or named as each case will have to be studied and pronounced on by the appropriate municipal authority...may be declared legal, urban developments once it can be shown they meet certain conditions”, says Saavedra. “The special situations pertaining to some of these Canarian shoreline villages will be recognised and they’ll benefit, if they fulfil these conditions. Each case will now be studied before earlier decisions to demolish are enforced. The Canaries account for one thousand five hundred kilometres of Spanish coast... and can be said to warrant different criteria”, affirms Saavedra.

Fingers crossed La Bombilla on La Palma’s west coast is a good example of a present day beach shack community, with its neat shell and driftwood decorated shacks, potted plants, carefully tended garden areas and bars and seafood restaurants, all accessed by sand tracks. Popular with both islanders and tourists as a beach and sunset spot, it is well worth a visit. La Bombilla owners must stand firm now this news has broken. With demolition orders already served, they can only hope Saavedra’s confidence in the new “Canarian conditions” is justified and the Department of Costas will be stopped before the bulldozers arrive.

Prescription fraud

Health cheats The new co-payment system for prescriptions has at least had one positive result; it’s turned up 150,000 health cards still in force which belong to people who are dead. The Department of Health has already identified cases of the cards being used fraudulently to obtain medicines. A further 800,000 people with cards have been identified who are not registered in the social security system, of which 200,000 are pensioners, who were therefore not paying for their medicines. The general secretary for the department of health, Pilar Farjas, believes that there has been a reduction of between 15 and 20 per cent in the number of prescriptions, which according to her means that the system is working, in that it is dissuading people to stock up on unnecessary

5

medicines. Unfortunately it also means that in some cases people who need the medicines cannot afford to get them. Interestingly, Farjas sent a message of calm to pensioners who were paying out over the top limit for their income bands saying that they would receive the money back from their health services without having to apply for it. Notices posted in the pharmacies in the Canaries say that the tax office will be in charge of refunds. And, as highlighted here last issue, there is no mention of how the many foreigners whose bank details are not in the Government system, will get their refunds. A spot of governmental crystal ball gazing perhaps? Yet another case of the right hand not knowing what the left is, or should be, doing.

Foreign doctors go

Tough economic measure are even tougher on non native populations and many have left the Canaries in the last few years, but among those going are not only those without documents or qualifications, the region has lost over 400 doctors. Of the 690 non Spanish doctors registered in the ‘colegio de médicos’ in 2009 in the Islands, only 253 remain. It is a trend that is expected to continue, if the cuts in the Canarian Health Service continue according to the president of the Tenerife ‘colegio’, Rodrigo Martín. He believes that the number may even be higher, as not all of the doctors who have left have signed out of the local body, especially those who were working in the private sector.

CO Desk Officer for Spain, Siobhan Wright included the Canary Islands in her recent familiarisation visit to Spain recently. During her three days with the teams in both Tenerife and Las Palmas, Siobhan received firsthand experience of the kind of difficult circumstances encountered by British nationals in the Canaries, and how the Consulate works with stakeholders and partners to offer assistance. The desk officers in the FCO are the first point of contact for uK based family and friends of British nationals who are in Spain and liaise very closely with Consular colleagues to ensure that appropriate information and advice is passed on. In Tenerife, Consular Officer, Mary Suarez, accompanied Siobhan on visits to hospitals in and meetings with National Police, Family Attention unit (SAF) and distressed women’s helpline, SHE, in the South of Tenerife. While in Las Palmas, Consular Officer, Silvia Ochando, introduced her to officials at Salto Del Negro prison. Siobhan

also took time to sit with members of both Consular teams and soak up their experience in dealing with distressed British nationals. Siobhan said, “at the FCO, when we pick up the phone , it’s to a son whose father passed away while on holiday on Tenerife, a mother whose daughter was raped the night before on Gran Canaria or the brother of a man who has been imprisoned in the Canaries. It’s really distressing for family not being able to support their loved ones in person, not under-

standing the language and local procedures. That’s why it’s so important for us to have the knowledge and expertise to offer them the best possible support within our remit.” Siobhan summed up her visit by saying, “I’ve gained invaluable knowledge from this visit and have been impressed by some of the facilities and support available to British nationals. I’ll be sharing my experiences with my colleagues at the Spain Desk when I get back and it will help us to offer more personalised and expert assistance to

The multinational French sports store have requested a licence to open a megastore in Tamaraceite Sur. If granted, the store will be on a 14,095 metre plot with a building of over 6,500 square metres. More jobs for the area and more shopping possibilities. The projected opening date is 2014.

O

wners of a plot of land in El veril, have made an offer to Wolfgang Kiessling for the creation of a new water park there along the lines of Siam Park.

It’s about 300 metres away from another plot that was under consideration by the magnate. Los Candelarios, owners of part of the land announced themselves

interested in the sale and development going ahead, however, “within adequate economic conditions”. Mr Kiessling was very critical of the Gran Canarians in a

recent speech during the opening of two new attractions in south Tenerife’s Siam Park. With the job situation the way it is it would mean work for many in the construction and later in the maintenance and client service in the new park. There are very few businesses that are willing to continue to invest in these tough times and the Gran Canarians may well price themselves out of the market.

Spanair accident

pilots want enquiry reopened S

panish pilots have called for the official inquiry into the air crash at Madrid Airport four years ago to be reopened. The country’s Pilots’ Association (Copac) said the inquiry report, published in July 2011, contains “many errors” and does not serve one of its main purposes, which is “to help prevent future tragedies”. The ac-

cident, in which 154 people died when a Spanair flight to Gran Canaria crashed just seconds after leaving the ground, has been attributed to the failure of the crew to fully check that flaps had been deployed properly before take-off. A faulty switch was blamed for the mistake, but the pilots say there is a lot more that has not been highlighted and they would like the

A Gran Canaria beach was closed for several days as local authorities investigated an outbreak of gastroenteritis that affected dozens of users. Around 70 people of all ages required treatment after visiting the Dos Roques beach in Gáldar. In a report from the Public Health department a few days after the outbreak it was stated that the cause of the outbreak had been traced back to the Dos Roques swimming pool.

During the investigation several risk factors for users of the beach and natural swimming pool were identified, including the facts that raw sewage is being pumped straight into the sea from nearby houses and that the underwater system of the Bocabarranco sewage treatment broken, both constitute a danger to the public’s health. The council has been informed that it needs to take several steps to remedy the situation, including eliminating the risks from the sewage, installing a drainage system for the swimming pool and all others along that stretch of coast. Meanwhile swimming is not recommended in the area.

According to a report in La Opinión newspaper, the statement was made in reference to the preceding time period just before the landslide in November 2009 that killed two women. After a previous rock fall, in October of the same year, the local authority apparently neglected to inform the local police in writing of the need for constant vigilance in the area. Also, in the case of the local police not having enough agents to fulfil this need it was said that an order should have been given immediately to

close the beach until a solution could be found. The council was the only body with the authority to take these actions at that time. The court expert added to this the fact that technical work carried out in the area was undertaken by people who were, “unqual-

ified and without even the minimum knowledge necessary.” continued the La Opiniónreport. The first rock fall in October was photographed by the police, after which the local fire brigade entered a report stating that action should be taken to

secure the beach by closing a certain area off, due to the danger of further rock falls, and that the Coastal authorities should be informed immediately regarding the situation. The council’s technician further recommended that the beach should be evac-

uated immediately, closed off and signs advising visitors of the danger should be put in place, as well as a geological report on the landslide carried out. It appears that it took 21 days for the council to get in touch with the Coastal authorities, a time which turned out to be only five days before the fatal afternoon when two people were killed. The beach was then closed - in the end for almost a year and a half. It appears that the court expert also said that it was irrefutably true that the area was indeed sectioned off, but with insubstantial metal poles and plastic tape, which he considered completely insufficient. We contacted Santiago del Teide council who said they had no statement to make until the full case hearing is completed and judgement has been made.

UK residence test – a closer look at some of the details By David Franks, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

M

y previous article on the UK’s new Statutory Residence Test (SRT) covered the basic elements of the test and what has changed since last year. You can view the article at www.blevinsfranks.com. The test will provide more certainty for expatriates as to whether they are UK tax resident and liable to UK income and capital gains tax. However, certainty does not necessarily mean simplicity, as evidenced by the fact that the latest Treasury document runs to over 120 pages. Expatriates should still take advice to clarify their position. Here I take a closer look at

some of the detail which could affect your residence status.

“Only home”

Anyone whose “only home” is in the UK will always be considered UK tax resident, regardless of how few days they spend there a year. The government now provides some guidelines. A UK property will not meet the “only home” condition if it is a holiday home, or if you also have a home overseas, or if it is available for 91 days or less a year. Ownership is not a determining factor.

Connecting factors – family and accommodation

The government has kept family and accommodation as two separate factors, making it easier for anyone with UK resident family to be caught out. However, the accommodation rule was relaxed slightly

- whether or not your family has available accommodation is now irrelevant; only accommodation used by yourself is taken into account if it is available to you for a continuous period of 91 days in a tax year and you spend at least one night in it during the tax year.

A day in the UK

Day counting refers to the number of midnights you spend in the UK during a UK tax year (6th April to 5th April). The government is considering a supplementary rule to apply to anyone who spends a large number of days in the UK but always leaves before midnight.

Transitional rule

A transitional rule will be introduced whereby you can apply the new rules to determine residency in any of the three years prior to the date

New rules are being considered for those who spend a lot of days in the UK, but leave before midnight

the SRT comes into effect, if you need this to determine your residence in future years.

Exceptional circumstances

Days in the UK to be disregarded under exceptional circumstances. This is where you are in the UK for reasons beyond your control, such as national or local emergencies (civil unrest, natural disasters etc) or sudden or life-threatening illness or injury.

Split Years

The Extra Statutory Concession which permits split year treatment will be placed on a statutory footing. You can spend 16 days back in the UK in the tax year of departure without losing split year treatment, but you must have no home in the UK to achieve this. Blevins Franks is highly

experienced in both residence and domicile matters and can guide you through the rules and help plan the best way forward for you. Summarised tax information is based upon our understanding of current laws and practices which may change. Individuals must take personalised advice.

Awaycations Snowdon’s magnificent peak

Holidays in the UK Many of those who move out of the UK and settle in the Canary Islands tend only to go back to visit relatives, but that can also be a great excuse to spend some time seeing areas of Britain that were never explored before leaving. Or maybe you are from England and have never been to Northern Ireland, or vice versa, or have never seen Scotland, Wales or Cornwall. There are a wealth of places to visit, and a rich assortment of culture, exciting activities and stunning architecture. For the first time visitor, there awaits endless surprises and a fascinating history that is matched by few places.

The south London

T

he capital is the top of many people’s lists. It’s a thriving metropolis and has been a major urban settlement for two thousand years, going back to its founding by the Romans. There are a huge range of attractions for visitors, and the history and grandeur of London pulls people from around the globe. Famous landmarks include St Paul’s Cathedral and Trafalgar Square, as well as no less than four World Heritage Sites: the Tower of London; the beautiful Kew Gardens; the area comprising the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, and St Margaret’s Church; and the historic settlement of Greenwich. And, of course, Buckingham Palace: every day the hoards gather to watch the changing of the guards, a colourful and magnificent tradition.

The city is also home to numerous cultural institutions, including the National and Tate Modern Galleries, the British Library and the Science, Natural History and Victoria and Albert Museums. For those who like the theatre, there are an astonishing 40 of them in the West End – commonly considered the home of the highest level of commercial theatre in the English speaking world. For sports fans, to name just a few options: there’s tennis at Wimbledon, Wembley Stadium - home of the English national football team, Twickenham - the national rugby union stadium or cricket at the two Test cricket grounds - Lord’s and The Oval. Or maybe you would like to be one of the 35,000 runners who take part in the London Marathon each year?

Cornwall

T

his rugged and fascinating area in the far southwest of Great Britain is set on a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and thus, being almost totally surrounded by sea, boasts a magnificent coastline of almost 480 kilometres. There are spectacular beaches and endless quaint fishing harbours. There is an old world feel to the whole of the county and many an hour can still be passed watching the local fishermen land their daily catch or watching the

tall ships, luggers and ketches sailing around the coast. To the north, an impressive stretch of vast golden sand bays stretches along the coastline. Long famed for its perfect surfing conditions, the coastline here is a hub for all kinds of water sports, and in the south of Cornwall various estuaries, fed by rivers from the high moors, empty into the sea bordered by flourishing gardens that thrive in Cornwall’s won-

derfully mild climate. There are twelve nationally recognised Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall and many kilometres of footpaths that provide walkers with ample opportunity for gentle strolls or challenging hikes. The history of the place is also fascinating with a wealth of prehistoric remains and Celtic standing stones, gigantic granite chambers and holy wells and plenty of tales of pirates, wreckers and smugglers. There is a well developed local art scene, inspired by the stunning landscape and, perhaps less known, a food scene that is equal to the best of the best. The area now has a mass of award-winning local food producers and top chefs. Without forgetting the famous traditional Cornish pasties and luscious cream teas that just can’t be missed.

Wales

T

ravel up the west coast and you come to another area of coastal beauty. Wales is bordered by England to its east and the Atlantic Ocean and Irish Sea to its west. It has over 1,200 km of coastline and, where Cornwall boasts rolling hills, Wales is mainly mountainous, with its highest peaks in the northern and central areas including the famous Snowdon, its highest summit at 440m. The countryside is spectacular and Wales has built a firm reputation for all sorts of out-

door sports. From mountain biking, through golf, fishing, abseiling and climbing, to kayaking, horse riding and windsurfing, Wales comes well equipped for outdoor adventure and activity holidays. Its attractions don’t stop there however; there is plenty to do in its major cities such as Cardiff and Swansea too. As in the rest of the UK, Wales has a proliferation of fabulous castles to visit and Wales is often said to be the castle capital of the world. It boasts over 400 castle remains, of which more than 100 are still standing. It is regarded as one of the modern Celtic nations and its national language is still taught in schools. It has a very strong national identity and a very particular landscape.

If you wish to truly discover the true heart of England, for instance, you need only fly to East Midlands Airport. Three great British cities are all within 30km of this international transport hub. Derby has a proud past, as evidenced in its towering cathedral and smartly designed manor houses. But with all manner of exciting theme parks and family attractions nearby, the city does not wallow in its old heritage. With a rich history spanning royalty, military battles and even legendary characters, in the form of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Nottingham is a city with an unmistakable atmosphere. For such a thriving urban space, its surroundings are amazingly green too, especially in the ancient oak lands of Sherwood Forest. Take a trip to Leicester and you’ll just as easily uncover space centres as ancient Roman ruins. Surrounding the city is a veritable delight of open green spaces, including the famed sites of great battles that shaped the course of England. Take a direct flight to the seat of Jet2.com’s head office, Leeds Bradford, and the whole of

Yorkshire is then yours for the exploring. Leeds has risen out of its industrial past to become a shining beacon of modernity in the North. Stroll along its car-free central streets to uncover the vibrant atmosphere. It’s a place where chic designer boutiques and exclusive restaurants sit by bustling markets and historic buildings. However beyond the buzzing nightlife and captivating activities, the outskirts of Leeds are dotted with stately homes and huge factories. They’re enduring reminders that the city has always proved alluring to every type of traveller. No mention of Yorkshire would be complete without mentioning York, considered one of the finest cities in the UK, and which offers visitors an astonishing cross-section of English history. Whether it’s Roman and Viking remains, Gothic churches, medieval battlements, Elizabethan timber-framed courtyards, Georgian townhouses, or Victorian railways stations: a rich tapestry of buildings combine to form a unique blend of shapes and colours. Even shopping around the narrow cobbled streets and courtyards is a cultural experience, and there is plenty of opportunity to browse through the many independent shops selling antiques, jewellery, books, art & crafts and designer clothes. Other options include the National Railway Museum, or you can just relax in one of the many traditional pubs, riverside bars or fabulous old English tearooms.

Newcastle is now one of the most thriving, beautiful cities in Northern UK. The English themselves consistently vote Newcastle as their favourite city.

You’ll love the unique atmosphere of its nightlife, where bars and clubs buzz with energy all night long and of course Newcastle Brown Ale. Even if

you prefer more sedate pursuits, gourmet restaurants and regally styled theatres will still command your attention. Newcastle owes its name to the castle built in 1080 by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, eldest son of William the Conqueror. The city was an important centre for the wool trade, coal mining and shipbuilding. These industries have since experienced brutal decline and closure, but Newcastle has reformed itself bravely, to become the business and cultural centre it is today.

Jet2 Scotland

S

cotland occupies the northern most third of the island of Great Britain. In addition to the mainland, Scotland constitutes over 790 islands, including the Orkney Islands, Shetlands and Hebrides. Edinburgh Airport places you in a breathtaking location, close to the atmospheric scenes of Edinburgh, a wonderful Scottish city. Wander the historic Royal Mile and you’ll reach the dusky stone of the grand Edinburgh Castle. This sprawling site is seemingly carved out of the rocky crags underneath, giving you incredible views of the neo-classical New Town below. At the other end of the ‘Mile’, you’ll make it to the coffee-col-

oured Holyrood Palace, a regal setting for the Queen’s residence in Scotland. Out of this distinguished heritage, a modern vision of Edinburgh arises with sleek cocktail bars, a live music scene and international shops lining Princes Street. It’s the capital city of Scotland and the seat of the Scottish Parliament. The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and there are over 4,500 listed buildings within the city. One of the biggest draws is the annual Edinburgh Festival, a group of independent festivals held over about four weeks, beginning in early August -during which period the population of the city roughly doubles. The best-known of the events are the Edinburgh Fringe - the largest performing arts festival in the world; the Edinburgh International Festival; the Military Tattoo; and the International

Book Festival. In fact, Edinburgh attracts over a million overseas visitors during the year, making it the second most visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom. Glasgow Airport unlocks yet more delights of Scotland, whether you’re searching for breath taking scenery or exciting cityscapes. Growing out of a fine tradition for commerce, the 21st century reincarnation of Glasgow has seen the city revitalise its spirit with ultra modern buildings and up-market shopping boutiques. Perhaps it’s this refined new atmosphere that leads to it being consistently voted as the best city in the UK. Time spent in Glasgow is of constant interest and entertainment, thanks to the cities many museums and the vibrant music scene. Yet even with this great urban metropolis, it’s just as easy to seek solace in the great swathes of parklands as it is to live it up in the city’s ever buzzing bars.

H

aving flown into Glasgow Airport it’s not far to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and the breathtaking scenery that the area boasts. No visit to Scotland would be complete without checking out Loch Ness, of course. The famous loch is a large, deep expanse of fresh water that extends for approximately 37km southwest of Inverness. Apart from its magnificent natural beauty, it is famous for the supposed sightings of the Loch Ness Monster. Also known affectionately as ‘Nessie’, the creature may or may not actually exist. Either way there have been many reported sightings and the area has drawn hoards of crowds since July 22 1933, when George Spicer and his wife saw, “a most extraordinary form of animal” cross the road in front of their car and enter the Loch. However, there is more to the area than mythical beasts. For instance, Urquhart Castle stands on a stubby peninsula

projecting a short distance into the Loch. The castle is in the care of Historic Scotland and is a truly fabulous example of fortifications. The visitor centre is very informative as well and, partly buried, it is largely hidden from the world, save for the face that overlooks the castle and loch below. For the truly adventurous there is always Ben Nevis - the highest mountain in the British Isles, standing at 1,344 metres above sea level. It’s a popular destination and approximately 100,000 people ascend its slopes per year. Of course, you don’t have to actually climb it, all of the highlands are worth a visit, either by taking a leisurely drive in the car, or stretching the legs for a stroll or hike.

Make a Stand!

Volunteers

Mental health issues are still a subject here in the Canary Islands that are often skirted around, sometimes hidden away or simply completely avoided.

T

his is not uncommon, yet quite incredible considering that, according to the World Health Organisation, over a third of people, in most countries, report problems at some time in their lives which meet criteria for diagnosis of one or more of the common types of mental disorder. However, there is one group that is making great strides towards not only bringing it to the public’s attention, but also improving the quality of life for those who are suffering from this range of debilitating conditions. The En Pie (Make a Stand) organisation is based in Las Caletillas, but is there to help all those around Tenerife who have a chronic mental health problem such as

schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or clinical depression. These illnesses aren’t fatal in themselves, but they are often longlasting - something that translates into great suffering for those with the illness, as well as their families. They have far reaching consequences in all areas of a person’s life: psychological, social and physical. Make a Stand is a group of professionals and family of sufferers, with experience in the field and who, together, are working to improve the lives of those who up until now have often been left to cope on their own. They employ the most modern approaches which are applied at a very personal level, helping each individual with their needs as a person, not as someone with an illness. Aimed at helping everyone in the community, but especially those who are suf-

fering from mental illness, the group aims to fulfill several different goals. These include development and support for access to diverse activities, encouraging interaction with nature, educating the community about mental health issues and raising their image within the community through a number of projects where they can show the positive contribution they can make.

Community projects One of the ongoing projects is cleaning various parts of the coast. First, an area that is in need of attention is identified, the responsible authorities are then contacted and then a mixed group of members and others from the community is formed to take

on the job. Training is given to all, covering working methods and safety for instance, before the project goes ahead. Organisational abilities, team work, social responsibility and the feeling of being able to make a difference are all important skills for everyone, but can in particular make a huge difference to someone with a mental health issue. Personal care is another important aspect of general health, and is often one of the first things that is allowed to slip. A personalised approach helps individuals feel good about themselves and their surroundings: building confidence and a positive self-image. Steps include access to hairdressers, help with makeup and dressing and the reorganisation of living quarters to make them homely and comfortable to be in, and a number of fashion and cos-

metic businesses around the island are already supporting the project. The Better Health scheme aims to makes sports more accessible. Volunteers will act in a ‘buddy’ system helping members take part in a variety of activities - from Padel, through swimming to volleyball, at the Ofra Sports Centre in Santa Cruz. In a similar theme the Canarian Wrestling Federation is an avid supporter of the Make a Stand community, providing short training courses for various members. Make a Stand are also working very closely with Environmental Health, and the outdoor activities of the Natura Vital Project take place in some beautiful spots. They include hiking, kayak, horse riding and scuba diving and for everyone involved it is a great opportunity to explore the coast and mountains of

One of the main objectives of the organisation is normalisation. Activities take place within the community and, as they do in everyday life, with a mix of people of different ages, backgrounds and abilities. This would not be possible without the help of the many volunteers who offer support on countless levels. Volunteers share the activities with members, on an equal footing and in a friendly role. Access to even more activities is now possible thanks to the kind donation of a minibus by Mr John Reid of Reids of Norwich Ltd to the foundation in June this year and there is often a team filming the many activities the group takes part in: showing people the everyday reality of living with a mental health issue is very important in the fight against stigma and misunderstanding. Maybe yourself, or someone you know, has a mental illness and would appreciate help and support. Or perhaps you would simply like to understand more or attend one of the many events that the organisation holds. Alternatively you may like to make a donation via the webpage. The website at: www.enpie.org, which is in English and Spanish, is a good place to find out more, or follow En Pie on facebook or twitter or see one of their excellent videos on Youtube, such as the one at: http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=bb0 0seF9CFw&feature=relmfu.

he revered Virgin of Candelaria is the Patron Saint of the Canary Islands and the celebrations which take place in mid august are amongst the most important within the archipelago’s religious calendar. The story behind the saint’s prominence here and in other Spanish speaking countries is very intriguing. The original inhabitants of Tenerife were called the Guanches, who lived a simple life and were almost wiped out by the Spanish when they conquered the island. Yet extraordinary events have meant that those indigenous people played an integral role in shaping today’s religious events and beliefs.

Discovery Sometime around 1392, before the Spanish conquest, a statue was found washed up on the shore at the mouth of the Chimisay valley, Güímar. The tale of the appearance of the image was recorded in 1594 by Spanish religious historian Fray Alonso de Espinosa in the two oldest known books about the Canary Islands. According to the legend described by him, two shepherds were on their way to the caves where they kept their goats when the animals became agitated. Look-

Christian appearance. The statue was, in fact, one of only a few ing for the reason why, when they turned to where the water flowed out of the valley and into the sea they saw the figure of what they thought was a woman on a rock. As is was prohibited for men to speak to or approach women outside of the village boundaries, one of them tried to signal her to move away so the animals could pass, but his arm became rigid and immobile. The other, in retaliation, tried to stab her with his knife, but instead became harmed himself. Frightened, they both ran to Chinguaro, the cave palace of the Guanche king, Acaymo. The ruler and his advisors went to the scene, where he ordered the shepherds to carry the image to the palace. On touching it they were instantly cured. Realising that the statue was special, the king decided to carry it himself, but after a short way had to ask for help. That is why, to this day, there is a cross and shrine to the Lady of Socorro at that spot. The image was eventually taken to a cave near the palace and was given the name Chaxiraxi which translates to Mother of the sun, woman of the world. Chaxiraxi was one of the principal goddesses within the Guanche pantheon and it is natural that they would associate the appearance with their own religion, despite the statue having a definite

depictions of a dark-skinned Mary and, apparently, a young man called Antón, who had been taken slave by the Spanish, but managed to escape and return to his island, recognised the image of the Virgin Mary. Having experienced Catholicism during his time in Spain he related the tale of Mary to the king and his court. And from that point on she was known as the Virgin Mary of Candelaria. The statue was moved to the Achbinico cave, also called San Blas, where it was housed until a small church was built in 1526. In 1826 the original image was carried out to sea thanks to a fierce storm: the coasts were searched avidly but she was never found. Subsequently a replica, which still stands in the basilica today, was made by the sculptor Fernando Estévez. The original depiction was a medieval gothic sculpture. The new one is in a Neoclassical style and, though they did keep her dark skinned demeanor, it did not correspond to the original in various ways. The new interpretation caused some consternation at first, but was soon revered just as much as the original had been. In 1599 Pope Clemente VIII named the Virgin as the Patron Saint of the Canary Islands and the present Basilica of Our Lady of Candelaria, which can hold up to 5,000 people, was finished in1959.

Dissemination As the Canary Islands was an obligatory stop on all journeys towards the Americas many of the archipelago’s customs were exported to that continent, one of them being the reverence of the Virgin of Candelaria. The saint’s image is known as the greatest treasure of the Canary Islands and is an important patriotic symbol, especially in those areas abroad where there is a high percentage of settlers from the archipelago. The Hindu community of Tenerife also even reveres the Virgin of Candelaria and has donated various rich vestments, as have many other groups, as the regular changing of the Virgin’s clothes is an important part of the religious ceremonies surrounding her.

Celebrations On February 2 the festival of Candlemas and the Purification of the Virgin is celebrated around the world. Here in the Canaries there are also celebrations in mid August, a date that coincides with an ancient Guanche festival. Pilgrims travel to Candelaria from all over the islands, and even further afield, for the devotions that begin on the night of August 14. Offerings of local food products are made to the sacred image, followed at sunset by a reenactment of the finding of the Virgin. After this she is paraded through the streets to the sound of fireworks and the voices of the faithful singing her hymn. The following morning a solemn mass takes place, after which she is carried around the Plaza de la Patrona de Canarias. The main celebration takes place in Candelaria, but all around the islands the various depictions of the saint will take part in similar rituals. As with the majority of religious festivals here the sombre Catholic ceremonies are accompanied by joyful partying and, in particular, fireworks.

Ships ahoy

Blowing bubbles Various marine scientists are looking into projects that well, basically, blow a lot of air bubbles under a ship. When air is pumped rapidly out of small holes in a ship’s hull the abundant bubbles swiftly unite and form a layer of air one or two centimetres deep. This forms a coating under the hull that reduces drag because air presents far less resistance than water. Therefore, continuously blasting air under a vessel’s hull can cut its fuel consumption by between five and 20 per cent. Almost all cargo ships have flat bottoms, as opposed to the V shape that faster sea voyaging vessels have, as the flat surface allows a larger volume of cargo to be carried per given amount of hull metal. The bubble system is perfect for this type of craft and, as the cost of fuel is often half or more of a cargo ship’s

total operating expenses, the potential savings are enormous. However, as a ship moves forward the layer of air slides back and out from under the hull and bubbles thus tend to slip past the edges of even flat hulls. Yet efforts to design a system to avoid this are apparently paying off. One design is to trap the layer of air between two ridges that protrude a few centimetres downward from the port and starboard edges of the hull. This has

particular potential as it should be possible to refurbish existing vessels. Another is to shape a new ship’s stern in a way that inhibits air being sucked into the propeller, where it would reduce thrust by lessening the propeller’s grip on the water. Designs for hulls that include airtrapping recesses a couple of metres deep should also be possible.

T

ottering out from the surgery in Los Realejos, after a successful appointment with our lovely Danish dentista, Dra. Cristina Pedersen, I paused to draw breath before once again assuming the persona of a mountain goat, a necessary requirement for transporting oneself up and down the vertiginous streets of the town. Over the road, behind the newish Town Hall, lies my ultimate goal, the municipal car park. But, before that, perhaps a spot of dinner? Looking around, I find that we are standing right outside a rather smart bar/restaurant with the name El Acueducto emblazoned on its maroon canopy. A smiling waiter strategically positioned in the doorway is doing his best to catch my eye. I help him on his way, and we are soon seated inside. Everything looks clean and smart, but I am wondering if we have made a mistake. There are no chairs! Only stools, but at least they are upholstered. I’ve got a ‘thing’ about seating in restaurants, and operate a self banning system when confronted by plain and non-upholstered chairs. Why should a restaurateur expect me to pay good money to spend an hour and a half perched in discomfort on a hard and all too often badly shaped piece of wood? Apart from that, the waiter (who happily volunteers some English) brings a blackboard over, upon which are scrolled the dishes on offer today. But there are no prices. Now, I am not one of those that just orders without knowing what I am going to be expected to pay at the far end. I have been caught too often for that, particularly in some really top end places that seem to think that if you have to ask the price then you cannot af-

R E STAU R A N T rev i e w / LO S R E A L E J O S

El Acueducto By John ford to darken their doors. Anyway, the waiter was more than happy to run through the list of the day, pointing out the prices as he went along. If the food is as good as the

descriptions, then we are in for a treat. Choices run from fresh vegetable soup, homemade gazpacho, scrambled eggs with mushrooms or fresh vegetables, Spanish omelette, various montaditos (bite sized delicacies

normally topping a piece of bread), a salad of avocado spinach and tomato, a main course shellfish dish, casserole of cod with potatoes and onions, medallions of pork with potatoes and peppers, beef, and pork in various guises. Since everything is freshly cooked, we were told that we could make individual changes if required. Now, right on cue, enter stage right the local cheese supplier, laden with various half rounds of his products. They are heaved up on to the bar, and a cold glass of something or other is slid along in his direction. Orders placed, a half litre carafe of the house wine (Despunte, from Cruz Santa) is brought, together with a litre bottle of water. Not having come across this wine before, I ask and am told that it is not generally available in the shops, only in some restaurants, which, I suppose, have cornered that particular market. But it is excellent. We also tried the white variety of Despunte, and it was crisp, fresh and slightly fruity. There is another blackboard for the wines, and, on close pe-

rusal, I see the aforementioned Despunte on offer by the bottle at €12, although our half litre was charged at €3.50. Somebody needs a new calculator. Anyway, there are half a dozen or so wines from Tenerife, the same number from La Rioja, but one sole entrant from Ribera. Prices range from €11 to €15. Elegant triangular shaped glasses filled with gazpacho are put down in front of us as an offer from the kitchen. Clearly, this is really homemade, with a peppery kick, a far cry from that tomato red stuff on offer in supermarkets. Crusty bread arrives to go with it. My wife, she of the pepper allergy, declines. But only a minute later, the waiter is back with an alternative, some really tasty Serrano ham with a little olive oil and chopped tomato on a bruschetta. A nice touch, the more so because it was not expected or requested. The starter that we have chosen is a mixed platter of cheeses. The three goat’s cheeses, one from Fuerteventura, one from La Palma, and one (made with gofio) from La Gomera,

were all lightly drizzled with olive oil. The slate on which it was served was dressed with a sprinkling of mixed nuts. Together with the freebie opener, that would really have been quite enough, as it turned out, but we had already ordered main courses. My main was baked cod with potatoes, onions and a touch of honey. Delicious. The other one was strips of very tender ternera (veal) sitting on some sautéed potatoes with a selection of fresh vegetables (how nice to see!) on the side. The beef was ordered medium rare, but came medium. The portion was large and so our old four legged friend at home benefited from an unexpectedly large bonus breakfast on the morrow. Our waiter continues to bustle about, nodding and smiling, asking if we need anything else, and enquiring if we are enjoying our meal. We are indeed. The food here is much better than it has any right to be. The quality is right up there, presentation and service is careful, and quantity is ample. We pay under €20 a head for two courses, half a litre of good local red wine (Despunte), bread, dip, and a litre bottle of water. A fair result for the quality offered. Oh, and there was a nice little touch on our departure. We were given vouchers to cover our parking costs in the municipal car park opposite. We will be back, to paraphrase that famous Californian/Austrian/actor/politician. Take your crampons with you and brave the steep streets of Los Realejos to visit this little restaurant. It well deserves your custom. It may not be the cheapest place to eat, but you will certainly eat well. Loos: 6/10.

By Xena

This delightful bar restaurant has been wonderfully put together for a truly enjoyable experience.

T

he decoration is tasteful and relaxing, and Dina and her staff could not be more helpful: lavishing attention on their customers. My partner and I decided to enjoy the Parisian feel of sitting at the tables set in the thriving Los Cristianos pedestrian street and, having perused the menu avidly, decided to share four dishes – all the better for experiencing the exquisite meal that was to appear. Main meals start from €5 and for starters we had chosen the Salmon tartar and stuffed mushrooms and tomatoes. the salmon is a tasty mix of smoked and fresh, chopped and mixed with onion, capers, capsicum, dill and lemon juice served on a bed of salad with copious amounts of fresh bread. the tomatoes had an unusual taste, but were very nice, though it was the stuffed mushrooms that really caught our attention – they were absolutely delicious. they are stuffed with spring onions, brown bread crumbs, oregano, fresh mozzarella, and more mushrooms. Delightful. the glass of house wine was every bit as good as people had been saying. A fine and full bodied red (at €2.50) it did indeed make a refreshing change from the sometimes dubious offerings that are occasionally served up as house. there is in fact also a good wine menu to choose from and several are available by the glass. For second course we ordered thai prawns and

Chicken spirals. I didn’t indulge in the chicken as I don’t eat meat, which was great because that meant all the more prawns for me. I cannot sing this dish’s praises enough. the pan-fried king prawns were mouth wateringly tasty, cooked in a splendid mix of white wine, garlic, jalapeño pepper, lemon juice and parsley. I’m told the skewered chicken breast, wrapped around bacon, was also very good and was only outshone by the prawns as they were so exceptional

and refreshing, one and all.

gary, the chef, truly has a magic touch and I am sure that the combination of his food, Dina’s vision and top service will be a hit. the bar has only been open for three months, but is already the talk of the town.

unfortunately there wasn’t any room left for dessert, although there were various tempting offers starting at €3.50, so I had a well presented liqueur coffee and my partner had a hot chocolate. A lovely end to a truly enjoyable evening.

As a treat we tried a sample of Dina’s three homemade lemonades. Lemon and orange, mint and lime and, my favourite, strawberry and mint: perfectly tart

Suicide

A few days ago I had to see a person who had just committed suicide. due to the manner she chose to do it, it was ineffably unpleasant to observe both her body and the atmosphere around it. it was early in the morning. As i jumped back in the car, i was lucky to hear a favourite song/prayer of mine.

I’ve woken up feeling dizzy several times over the past few weeks. What might the problem be that’s causing this? Cheers, Jean

Dear Jean, Dizziness is a word that is often used to describe two different feelings, lightheadedness or vertigo. Light-headedness is a feeling that you are about to faint or ‘pass out’. Although you may feel dizzy, you do not feel as though you or your surroundings are moving. It often goes away or improves when you lie down. It’s often caused by a momentary drop in blood pressure and blood flow to your head that occurs when you get up too quickly from a seated or lying position (orthostatic hypotension). It can also be caused by allergy or flu/colds medication, as well as vomiting, diarrhoea, fevers, and other illnesses

By Dr Carlos Viru

Inner ear problems can cause vertigo

that cause dehydration. A more serious cause of lightheadedness is bleeding. Most of the time, the location of the bleeding and the need to seek medical care are obvious. But sometimes bleeding is not obvious (occult bleeding). Heavy menstrual bleeding also can cause this type of lightheadedness. An abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) can cause fainting spells (syncope). Vertigo on the other hand, is a feeling that you or your surroundings are moving when there is no actual

movement. You may feel as though you are spinning, whirling, falling, or tilting. You may have trouble walking or standing, and you may lose your balance and fall. Common causes include: inner ear disorders (positional vertigo, Meniere’s disease, vestibular neuritis).

Best wishes. Dr. De La Flor, G.P. is licensed in medicine & general surgery. He holds certificates in nutrition, medical exercise and human performance from the University of Berkeley in California, the American Council on Exercise and the U.S. National Strength & Conditioning Association.

Hello dear friends, How much is your beauty worth? Is it worth putting your beauty in the hands of just anyone to save a few euros?” We are all aware that the economic situation is squeezing everybody, patients and doctors alike, and at times we are willing to do crazy things for beauty at a cheap price, but you should know the possible consequences of this.

it goes, “i’m not afraid of anything in this world. There’s nothing you can throw at me that i haven’t already heard. i’m just trying to find a decent melody, a song that i can sing in my own company.”

For a few days now i’ve had this song as my phone ring tone. it challenges me to find an inner decent melody to re-focus, to re-group, to pray and avoid getting stuck in A l c o h o l a n d m a n y those moments.

prescription and non prescription medicines can cause light-headedness or ver tigo. My advice, and considering that you’ve had this issue for a few weeks, is to schedule a visit with your trusted GP soon. Make sure you take a few notes so that when you meet him/her you can explain in detail your signs and symptoms. Most often it is something benign but prudence calls for a bit of digging to figure out the cause of your symptoms.

The risks of non professional treatment

ReSoLUTioN: For the next two weeks, let’s try to relish a few minutes every morning to find our own decent melody. Different strokes for different folks; when i get stuck in the moment, when pain arrives, when i feel down, i normally need a dosage of uplifting music, childhood prayers and exercise. That’s my way to search for a decent melody, a song that i can sing to get the compass back in order. Amidst pain,sadness or the most trying situations, we all have to try to find a decent melody, an inner melody that uplifts us; a decent melody that polishes and awakens our inner talents; a decent melody that aids us in taking a fresher look at things and at people; a decent melody that sparks the right feelings and emotions.

if you like, type in YouTube ‘Stuck in the moment U2,’ then simply close your eyes, enjoy the lyrics, and let your heart do the talking, or the crying, both are wonderful prayers either way. Talk to you in a couple of weeks.

I have seen cases from hairdressing salons, or totally unethical people who work from home, and often all goes well. However it is when it gets complicated that you really appreciate the quality of the professional at your side. Many of the patients I see in the south come to me to try and amend cosmetic medical disasters carried out by untrained and unqualified people. In recent months I have seen an alarming number of complications from these treatments, from facial burns, scars and even eyelid Ptosis (drooping eyelid). So, an initially cheap treatment can end up as a nightmare with a large financial outlay. Unqualified individuals who work in this field often behave without the necessary care and end up disappearing from the scene after their disasters, which is when the clients turn to a qualified professional. Why come to this? Remember, these people should be reported, but the most important thing is not to put yourself in just anybody’s hands. Be distrustful; ask to see the Canary Islands Health Service opening licence, proof of university qualifications or check online at the colegio de medicos in your province. It’s better to be safe than to put your face in unskilled hands. If anything like this has ever happened to you, send me an email so that we can help and guide you. To get a licence to carry out these treatments you have to fulfil a minimum of requirements for the protection of the patient – you! Remember that if anyone offers you botox or filling treatments or peelings elsewhere. If you accept treatment in these places you are helping to support the informality of the market and at some point the person who is going to have the problem will be you. Is it worth it?

good, balanced, varied diet is not only important from a general medical point of view but is also a significant part of leading a healthy lifestyle.

It also has an impact on the health of your teeth. Lactic acid and calcium, for example, are essential elements in bone structure such as that of the jawbone, into which teeth are anchored. Calcium also plays a role in the health of your teeth. The recommended daily intake of calcium that doctors suggest for an adult is somewhere in region of 55 grams. This amount would, for example, be covered by a yoghurt. Equally important is the correct supply of vitamins to your body. Vitamins C and D are especially helpful in maintaining healthy teeth. A lack of

Vitamin C in younger years, can, for example, lead to dental problems later on. An orange or glass of fresh orange juice can lower this risk. Young people often go for a fizzy drink over a glass of fresh juice these days. The high levels of carbonic acid and sugar in these soft drinks attack tooth enamel. This is just one problem to avoid if we are not to put our bodies and our health under pressure from various angles such as being overweight. A really wonderful thing that we have an abundance of in the Canaries is Vitamin D. This important element helps the body to grow and repair itself. The body itself produces vitamin D, but only if it receives enough sun. Sunbathing twice a week for 15 minutes is enough to let the body produce the

24H Service Your food and drink choices also affect the health of your teeth amount of Vitamin D it needs. Thanks to the fabulously sunny climate here, we can cover this vitamin need effortlesly and without even really thinking about it. With respect to dental health, Vitamin D helps above all to alleviate, halt or even cure inflammatory responses in the body. A good diet, rich in variety of food items, as well as the right choices when it comes to drinks, has a much bigger influence on dental health than you might at first imagine.

Henna tattoos are beautifully intricate

Tribal and Celtic designs are the most long-established tattoos, and the two-tone effect – skin and, usually, black pigment – can look very striking. Nowadays they are mostly used for their aesthetic qualities, but throughout history they have been worn as a way to signify heritage, spirituality, social status and the coming of age.

No tattoo, however, has to be permanent: Henna has been used since the Bronze Age to dye the body, clothes and hair and the effect usually lasts for several weeks.

Hi everyone, W column.

ell the Olympics are on everyone’s lips as I write my

Opinions are divided about the opening ceremony, especially the industrial part, but there were several highlights within that section. For me, David Beckham epitomized a modern English gentleman. He behaved impeccably. The sketch with the Queen and ‘James Bond’ was a touch of genius which will be repeated in every replay of Britain’s opening ceremony in years to come. Mr Bean showed the world that comedy can be an international language without a word needing to be spoken and was another touch of genius. The light show and the fireworks, and indeed every feat of engineering, were all world class, and the final part took my breath away. Eurosport have done a great job of filming and reporting for those of us who would not have been able to see any of the events without them.

As I write my column, i’m looking forward to the field athletics later in the week. we are so lucky to live in an age whereby you can go out, yet record your favourite event so that you miss nothing. I personally remember the days when Roger Bannister ran his four minute mile, and we had to rely on newsreel at the cinema to see it. And speaking of the cinema, i also remember going to see Mohamed Ali fight Joe Frazier at the cinema in the middle of the night in 1971. Before his conversion to islam, Ali boxed as Cassius Clay and in 1960 won an olympic gold medal at Light Heavyweight in Rome. He turned professional in october of that year and between then and 1963 he won 19 bouts, 15 of which were knockouts. He acquired the nickname The Louisville Lip, and began boasting about in which round he would finish off his opponents. In 1964 he fought Joe Frazier for the first time, and the day before the fight announced he would “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”, and after winning the title, announced his

Ruined holiday Dear Editor

I

was recently on holiday in Tenerife and visited Los Cristianos one evening.

My party stopped for a drink at a bar near the beachfront next to the sweet shop. Whilst there a street seller arrived and started putting a card and some items for sale on some tables. He came to our table and I said to him three times, “no gracias”. He did not speak but gave me a look of pure hatred whilst still leaving his items on our table. Feeling extremely unsafe by his manner, I got up and moved his items to a spare table (to ensure that he did not have to visit us again). He continued to draw me daggers, lifted his goods and gave me three punches on the back as he passed my table. As he went round the restaurant collecting his goods I continued to get the venomous looks. This man did not speak one word to us and I believe he was of eastern European origin.

conversion to islam. Ali was a world hero, although in the 70s he became unpopular with several political groups because he was also a social activist and refused to fight in the vietnam war. In interviews, especially with Michael parkinson, he won the heart of the British people with his charm and wit, as well as his talent. I felt very sad when I saw him on the podium at the Opening Ceremony, for although he looked handsome and beautifully groomed and suited, he was unable to speak, and was the only one to be seated, and looked very ill and distressed. If I was still presenting a radio show, i would have played and dedicated to Ali, the song A legend in my time made famous in the UK by David Alexander. I’d like to thank Viv Sheffield for her generosity in giving me the ticket her partner cannot use, to fly to the UK. All i had to pay was the name change and baggage. Many thanks viv and Clive, i’m thrilled.

And finally, my pal Sheila and I had a great night out together recently at an Indian Restaurant that was new to me. it’s called Bombay Babu and is situated in the CC La Niña, Torviscas in Costa Adeje. we had a fabulous night, and the décor was amazing. The food I have to say was sumptuous and each course was a journey into wonderland. But we had to laugh at the end of the meal, when the owner, prakash brought us coffee and after about a million calories we’d never ever attempt to take off, (as we’d have to jog thousands of miles after the amount of food we’d put away between us), asked if we’d prefer sugar or saccharine! So thanks for an amazing night. The two of us sailed away like two galleons, full to the decks with spices from the orient.

Until next time, enjoy the rest of the olympics, and take care of yourselves, and especially of each other.

editorial@ic-news.com

Basically, I am wondering who are these people who make you feel unsafe purely because you do not wish to buy their products? I am not talking about the black African (looky looky men) who are nothing but charming and take “no thanks” for an answer. This incident spoiled the last few days of my holiday. I felt very frightened in case I met this man again. If he can punch a lady in the back in the middle of a busy restaurant, what would he have done to me had I met him in the street on my own? I have never felt unsafe before on any of any trips abroad and thanks to him I doubt if I will be visiting Tenerife again MAGARET CAMPBELL IRVINE

Holiday lets Dear Editor

I

read your letters regarding apar tment renting in Tenerife with great interest.

How many of us have come on holiday to this beautiful island and decided to invest our hard earned cash into an apartment, maybe just to retire here or to look to the future as an investment. We buy our apartment and we pay our dues (tax payments when buying an apartment here are high). We are investing money into the economy. Holidaymakers coming to stay in apartments put lots of cash into the system. The shops, restaurants theme parks etc. By stopping the holiday lettings so many people are suffering. How many shops, bars and restaurants have closed? There are rows of taxi’s waiting for a fare. The law in favour of the hotels has really backfired. As they now have the monopoly on guests the standards in most hotels has dropped considerably. They have a captive audience. The standard of the food is unacceptable. The entertainment is non existent. As most are now all inclusive people are reluctant to leave what they have paid for and

explore this beautiful island. We know that the economy is suffering but it not acceptable to stop cleaning the island. For example, I live in Los Cristianos and three weeks ago on the stairs down to the San Telmo main street, someone had been sick and it was quite frankly disgusting. It’s still on the stairs, very unhygienic and a very bad advert for holiday makers. When will the government come to its senses and realise that without holidaymakers this island will be finished. It is not just holiday makers, foreign residents and local English bars and restaurants that will suffer. The Canarian people will have no jobs either. We bring too much income to this island to ignore what is going on. We must lobby the people that matter to do something before it is too late.

Aries (Mar. 21 – April 19) A rocky relationship becomes rockier and even the best partnership is likely to feel the strain. Although it will be a challenge, try to view events, situations and viewpoints from the opposite perspective. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) You’re drawn to people as relationships focus your attention. This influence favours love, family ties, and close relationships. Some singles might even commit to ‘happily ever after’ or at least ‘happily for right now’. Gemini (May 21 – June 21) A major hotspot occurs in the middle of the month, a relationship issue you experienced earlier in the year. The issue may involve the same person or people, or someone new who’s a friend or romantic interest. Cancer (June 22 – July 22) Resolve any lingering concerns you have, but think twice before cutting ties once and for all. Don’t make decisions too quickly; in fact try to avoid making them at all! Leo (July 23 – August 22) Take a class for the fun of it, and avoid arguing and squabbling with your family as it will blow up into something totally out of control. Choose your words with care and be extra sensitive to the moods and feelings of others. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) Although this is not the best time for a new commitment, it is the time to put the past behind you and embrace the future, which may involve you swallowing your pride.

Libra (September 23 – October 22) A long weekend away with your partner, having fun in strange beds and in weird and wonderful locales will do wonders for your relationship. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) past karma and subconscious helps you become more disciplined and to give up old eating habits which have been sabotaging your previous diet efforts. Good luck! Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) work wise you shine in August. Cross your fingers (and everything else) for a promotion, job offer, bigger pay cheque. Be sure to ask pointed questions if you’re offered to step up or get a new position. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) A great time for your love and lust life, whether you’re single or committed. if you’re searching for romance, socialise with friends where you can meet other singles, or ask a friend for introductions. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) while it will be tough to reach agreement on pretty much anything, at least you will get to hear people’s ‘real’ opinions. Your vision will become clearer viewed through the words and actions of others. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Murphy’s Law is in full effect in your life, whatever can go wrong will go wrong. The effects will not be long lasting however and the phase will soon pass.

hosted by Suzy q, there was a brilliant line up of entertainment provided by Colin Stevens, Lucinda as Shakira, Dave Michaels, Big Chris, Dominic James and Aidy Evans. And comedy was added by a routine from Dave Slippers, Shaun and Ben who...well, let’s just say you had to be there. A million thanks to all.

Fasnia refuge progress At the time of writing just over 250 dogs have gone to the new refuge and look to be settling in well. Live Arico have sent €410 in the past few days to FECAPAP for the upkeep of our dogs, and we will continue to do so as long as we have your support. Many things are needed too, and we ask if anyone can help with the donation of:• Shelving • Cupboards for storage • Collars and leads • Medicines • Work tools

Heartworm

• Small concrete mixer • Anti Parasite Treatments • Cleaning Products and Utensils • Large Bin Bags • Containers of any size.

Call Sue on 629 388102 and we will arrange collection. “The shops remain open”, are the biggest regular money spinners to support the animals and are still a great place to get the best bargains: Los Cristianos, Churchill Square, opposite the play park by the harbour, 10am to 4pm daily, including Sundays; San Eugenio, opposite hotel La Niña by Amandas Bar, 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and our original shop in Costa del Silencio, 11am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. For those of you who saw the news of the gillian Banks theatre School shows on Island Connections website or Facebook page and were able to come along, both events were a mega success and we will announce the total raised for Live Arico/Fasnia refuge and K9 soon. Many, many thanks to all involved.

We are also very lucky to have found homes for two of our 60 podencos, they will be leaving for germany on August 18. the Director of Accion Del Sol reminds everybody that the refuge works solely with authorised municipalities which are granadilla, Arona and guia De Isora and that dogs can only be brought to the refuge by Protection Civil or the police with the necessary documentation. If you do find a dog in those municipalities then please follow their required procedure and call 112. Collection of the dog will be arranged by the local police who will inform Protection Civil to collect the dog and take it to Accion Del Sol.

the larvae are passed on by infected mosquitoes. these then travel through the blood of the host until reaching the heart. the worms lodge in the heart and lung arteries and can grow to a length of 30 centimetres. When a mosquito takes the blood of an infected animal it ingests the larvae and then passes them on to another one, meaning that one infected animal can lead to dozens more suffering the same fate. often the infection goes unnoticed in the first stages, but will produce serious lesions in the heart and lungs as it progresses. your pet will seem tired, even at rest, may cough, have difficulty breathing and lose their appetite and thus weight. Left untreated the disease will eventually lead to death. the Canary Islands is one of the areas where heartworm is prevalent, as the climatic conditions are very favourable. It’s

thought that around 20 per cent of animals are infected. For this reason is important for your pet to have regular health checks and, preferably, regular prevention. this is usually administered every 30 days.

to travel throughout Europe your dog or cat will need a valid passport plus an up to date rabies vaccination. to connect the pet to the passport, they must also be fitted with an electronic microchip or have a clearly readable tattoo (which must have been applied before 3 July 2011): all of which your local vet can provide. When travelling from the Canary Islands it is also much easier than before to take your companion into the uK. the Pet travel Scheme is the system that allows dogs, cats and ferrets to enter the country without quarantine, as long as they meet all the require-

ments. Although it is slightly more complicated than travel to the rest of Europe, the rules are there to keep the British Isles free of rabies and certain other exotic diseases.

Preparation the first step is having your pet microchipped: before any of the other procedures can be carried out, your pet must be fitted with a microchip so it can be properly identified. then comes the Rabies vaccination. the waiting period before entry into the uK is now only 21 days after the first vaccination date (unless the vaccination is in two parts, when the 21 day wait will be

from the time of the second vaccination). After this, if rabies boosters are kept up to date there isn’t any waiting time. then you can get your passport, though many vets will start the process simultaneously. Dogs also need a tapeworm treatment which must be administered by a vet not less than: 24 hours and not more than: 120 hours (1-5 days) before its scheduled arrival time in the uK. Further, you must only enter the country via an approved transport company on an authorised route. there are no exceptions to this.

British Embassy

Homeowner rental warning H

omeowners who rent out their properties to holidaymakers are being warned they could face huge fines unless they comply with Spanish law. the British Embassy has become aware of a number of cases where homeowners have been fined up to €30,000 for letting properties without the correct permits. the Embassy has published advice for homeowners who rent out their properties or are considering doing so, which can be found on the uKinSpain website.

Short-term lets The regulations on letting tourist

apartments (apartamentos turísticos) and holiday homes (viviendas vacacionales) vary by region. If you are planning on making a financial return by renting out your existing property, or buying one to let, you are recommended to seek independent legal advice and check the local licensing laws with your local town hall (Ayuntamiento). this is particularly important in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands where the rental of holiday properties on a short-term basis is strictly regulated. the authorities in these areas are cracking down on homeowners who rent out their properties to tourists (particularly through online adverts) without complying

with Spanish law. If you own or are planning to buy an apartment which is part of a Comunidad de Propietarios (Committees of property owners who are responsible for the management of communal areas of apartment buildings/ complexes), you should also check whether there are any rules that prohibit or restrict short-term letting.

are using the correct rental contract. there are different types of contracts depending on how long the property is being let for, such as arriendos de vivienda which are for a minimum of five years, and arriendos de temporada which are generally for one year or less. you can get copies of these contracts from tobacconists (estancos).

Taxes:

Long-term lets Owners who rent out properties on a long-term basis are generally not required to apply for a special licence. however, it is worth seeking professional advice to make sure that you are complying with Spanish legislation and that you

Owners of properties should also be aware that whether or not you are resident in Spain, you will need to declare rental income to the Spanish tax authorities. homeowners may wish to seek advice from a professional tax adviser (asesor/gestor).

Managing a property rental: you may want to consider hiring a Spanish letting agent to assist with finding tenants, drawing up rental contracts and managing the property on your behalf.

Further information: Advice on renting out property in Spain on the UKinSpain website FAQs on letting property in Spain (in Spanish) from the Sociedad Pública de Alquiler (Public Rental Society) Lists of local English-speaking lawyers can be found on the consular pages of the uKinSpain website.

Tourist rental laws FACT oR FiCTioN?

The year was 2012. owners of tourist apartments on ‘utopia Island’ were closely monitoring the legal situation regarding the rental of their properties to tourists following years of systematic persecution by the tourist authorities. Fear and uncertainty was rife. Eve-

ryone agreed that something had to be done about the ‘unfair’ and ‘monopolistic’ laws restricting how properties may be rented to tourists, but nobody appeared to have any real answers. Meetings were held, plans were drawn up and action groups were formed. group leaders pushed their individual agendas, mostly borne out of ego or financial interest. the common theme among all groups was to pressure the authorities into reviewing or changing the law or to challenge the law through the

courts. however, the general consensus among the more influential members of the tourist industry and the community was that such action, in the short term, would be a complete waste of time.

The reality was that the supposedly democratic government of ‘Utopia Island’ had been fully aware of the overwhelming public majority who had been opposed to the rental laws for over a decade.

They were fully aware that a large percentage of owners already refused to use the ‘designated’ sole agent and simply rented their properties out privately or through an independent agent. They were fully aware that the majority of those owners didn’t declare a single utopian-Dollar in income tax on those rentals for fear of coming up on the radar of the tourist inspectors. Aware of the level of black market rentals, the government of utopia were forced to introduce a tax based upon a notional income of two per cent

return on each non-resident or second property in utopia, regardless of whether the owner actually rented it out or not. to find out how the citizens of utopia beat the restrictions, read the rest of this fiction online at www.islandconnections.eu.

EDITION 675 :: 10/08/2012 - 23/08/2012 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

A study by the Spanish Audi safety group, Attitudes, has shown that ‘subconscious driving’ is prevalent.

Safe attitude

to put themselves in the place of someone who is driving in this manner. The videos, which are in Spanish, can be seen on Youtube or by going to: www.coches.net/ noticias/conduccion_subconsciente/ But, whether you watch the videos or not, the campaign is a well needed reminder that when driving we should be fully concentrating on what we are doing.

Mazda/Ford

P

art of the company’s Corporative Social Responsibility programme, the campaign aims to make to people aware of the dangers of driving without full awareness. How many times have you arrived at a destination and thought, ‘How did I get here?’ or ‘I don’t remember anything about the journey at all.’ That is subconscious driving and it usually happens on familiar routes that are driven every day or on long stretches of motorway where it is possible to slip off into an almost hypnotic state. After conducting a survey the group has noted that 75 per cent of drivers admitted to driving under these conditions occasionally and 25 per cent to doing so regularly. Almost 80 per cent of those

questioned recognised that driving unconsciously poses a threat to road safety. Attitudes has been working for several years to raise public awareness regarding safety issues and received the governmentgranted medal for Road Safety Merit in 2011. With this latest campaign it is hoped that drivers will become more aware of the amount of times they are not paying full attention to the road and change their habits. Strangely enough, the comment “I wasn’t paying attention” never appears on insurance claims, but the Attitudes group believes that this phenomenon may actually play a significant part in many road accidents. They have produced a series of videos that enable watchers

Recalls

T

wo major car manufacturers have recently announced worldwide recalls. Ford was first with its statement that the Maverick would be called in, whilst Mazda announced only days later that it would be recalling copies of the mechanically similar Tribute SUV, both of the vehicle types suffering with the same problem - a sticking throttle.

Ford built both the Maverick, and the Tribute for Mazda. The recalled vehicles use the 3.0 litre V6 and have cruise control. If the driver pushes the throttle to the floor a cruisecontrol cable that runs under the plastic engine cover can get stuck and hold the throttle open. Ford’s recall of the Maverick covers nearly 424,000 vehicles from the 2001 to 2004 model years. The Mazda Tribute SUV models are from the year 2001 through to 2008, with the exception of 2007 as Mazda did not sell Tribute that year. That’s 217,500 Mazda cars affected: 641,500 in total. To fix the problem, dealers will replace the engine cover fasteners to increase the space between the engine and the plastic cover. Both of these models are on the Islands, so it is worth checking whether your car is one of those affected.

Visitors to Europcar’s Facebook page will vote for the most entertaining recital and said super star will win the grand prize of a Fiat 500 car. Marking the launch of the competition, Europcar asked its UK staff about their in-car singing habits. The results were quite enlightening: more than 88 per cent admitted to singing away to their favourite tunes whilst driving. And their favourite song? - The raucous Ace of spades by Motorhead. With talent shows being so popular this is a great way for the more reclusive singer to show their worth. Competitors can choose from a list of 10 classics, including the Troggs hit, Wild Thing and Lady Marmalade by Labelle and then upload their videos to Facebook using YouTube API feed. Entrants are encouraged to campaign for themselves by collecting votes for their Caraoke videos through their own Facebook friends and groups.

New wireless electriccar charging technology will be tested for the first time before the end of the year.

Suzuki has once again come out high in the ranks for reliability. Always top scoring, in the latest Warranty Direct survey the company came fourth out of 36, joining seven other Japanese manufacturers in the top 10, something perhaps to be taken note of. The Reliability Index takes into account all factors of repairs including cost of parts, frequency of failures and time off the road.

The 1928 Cadillac V8 Town Sedan had been expected to fetch significantly more, but there were some doubts about the validity of its ownership. However, previous owners, including the US government, had found sufficient supporting evidence, such as old newspaper reports and records from the company that armour plated it, to satisfy them that it is genuine.

Boxing

By George Reed

Olympics 2012:

THE OLYMPIC LEGENDS S Born in Las Tunas, Oriente, Cuba on March 29, 1952, Stevenson was only 20 years of age when he ripped through the Olympic field in Munich, in 1972. he won by default, after his Romanian opponent, Ion Alexe, was unable to compete in the final, due to an injury in the semi-finals, however the Cuban sensation had won all his previous bouts by technical knockouts.

Two years later Stevenson won the amateur world heavyweight championship. he won his second olympic gold in Montreal in 1976 after a string of knockouts, which included a 90 seconds stoppage of the American John tate, a future professional world heavyweight title holder. the third was earned in Moscow in 1980, where the Cuban won with an easy points win against Russia’s Pyotr Zaev.

Cuba boycotted the following two Olympics; otherwise Stevenson would most probably have won unprecedented fourth and fifth gold medals for he was the most feared amateur heavyweight of his time, who had beaten all the American olympic hopefuls along the way. A number of them who would win heavyweight world belts in the professional game, such as the likes of tony tubbs and tyrell Biggs.

He was besieged by offers from American promoters to turn professional, some of the offers ran as high as two million dollars: a phenomenal amount of money at the time. one wonders what might have been if he had stepped into the ring with the likes of Muhammad Ali, george Foreman, Joe Frazier, Leon Spinks, Ken Norton, Mike Weaver or John tate, all world heavyweight champions during Stevenson’s olympic Reign.

The nearest he came to fighting any of them was against Ali, who had regained his title, and the Cubans fancied putting their best boxer against him, believing Stevenson could beat ‘the greatest’. the only problem was that Stevenson would have to fight as an amateur as professional sports were banned in the Communist Island at the time. Cuban officials drew up a plan that would be acceptable to the Amateur International Boxing Association. the scheme called for five fights, three rounds each fight, to take place in five u.S cities, and if either fighter k.o’d the other, the series was over. Initially rejecting the plan, the AIBA agreed to the proposal in 1978. A contract was drawn up for a fee of three million dollars to be paid to Ali and 1.5 million dollars to Stevenson, whose purse would go to the Cuban Boxing Federation.

The first fight was scheduled for February 28, 1979 in New york City and Ali was due to sign the contract on october 13, 1978, but according to people involved, he failed to show up. Ali said he had telephoned an AIBA lawyer in havana and declined to fight, saying he had nothing to win and everything to lose by fighting an amateur.

Teofilo Stevenson will always be a hero in his homeland, not only for his great success in amateur boxing, but for sacrificing great personal wealth for the cause and the Comandante. For he could have earned millions of pounds had he defected and turned professional.

in 11th place in the men’s 470 and just missing out on a finals place. Tara Pacheco, the skipper of her 470, was in 11th place after eight races, so still has time to at least get into the last race for the medal positions. Also still in with a chance as we go to print are Nicolas García in the Taekwando 80kg category and José C. Hernández in the marathon. Both Daniel Sarmento and Mangué Chávez, members of the male and female handball teams can be classed as hopefuls as the national teams are through to the quarter and semi finals respectively. Possibly the best chances of all are with synchronised swimmer Thäis Henriquez, (especially after the Spanish team’s pairs competitors snatched silver, although the Russians are once again favourites for the gold in the event), and basketball player Sergio Rogríguez. The national basketball team played a tactical game against Russia to avoid the USA until the final (if, as expected, they make it that far), a tactic that nearly went wrong as Argentina gave the USA a run for their money until the last quarter. Had Argentina won, it would have upset all their calculations. However Sergio could well be in with a chance of at least a silver.

Olympics 2012:

T

he Spanish team at the London 2012 Olympics fielded a good crop of Canarians, some of whom are still in with a medals chance as we go to print. The best result so far was achieved by Andrés Mata in weightlifting, who said that his debut in an Olympic Games was “a dream come true” and he was thrilled by the experience. He came in a very credible 6th position in his 77kg weight group, which is excellent for the young sportsman and received an Olympic Diploma which are given to the first eight in each category. Amazingly his parents had to pay to see him compete as the Spanish weightlifting association do not provide passes for friends and relatives. Perhaps most disappointed was Mario Pestano, the discus player now in his third Olympics and still unable to break his bigcompetition medal jinx. He failed to make the final, bringing his games to an early end. Pestano

the blanquiazules pre-season has been gaining momentum with four matches now played.

A

4-0 victory over local La Palma side El Paso was followed by a 1-1 result against tougher opposition in SD Tenisca, a team just one league below CD Tenerife which barely missed out on promotion last season. The blanquiazules eventually won the ‘La Palma Island Trophy’ on penalties. On their return to Tenerife a friendly was arranged to celebrate the 100th anniversary of RCD Igara, a club based in the town of Garachico on the North coast. The 5-0 victory for Tenerife was a predictable scoreline but the main benefactor of a great evening was RCD Igara who enjoyed their historic night in a packed stadium. The dominant aspect of this blanquiazul preseason has been the blooding of the youth and the determination of the squad as a whole to make sure that CD Tenerife have a good season. The style of play under new manager Alvaro Cervera appears to be more pleasant on the eye compared to last season but the results are what matter at the end of the day, so we will see. The hardest test of the pre-season so far was played in the Heliodoro Stadium last Saturday against 2nd division UD Las Palmas. The young CD Tenerife side, fielding four Tenerife born players in their starting line-up, gave a good account of themselves, especially in defensive duties. The 0-0 scoreline was a good result for Tenerife considering that Las Palmas were well into their pre-season and are

CD Marino

Looking good so far

The new addition to the Liga Segunda B, CD Marino Tenerife Sur stepped out for a friendly with UD Las Palmas, which is currently in the second division (one league higher). The team fielded included some ex CD Tenerife players, Aarón Darias and Raúl Barcos, who came in from Lorca Atlético and Jorge Reverón who was ceded directly from the larger Tenerife club. The difference in category showed and UD Las Palmas played well winning the match 0-3, with goals from

now playing in a higher category. The second leg of this newly named ‘Mahou Cup’ will be played this Saturday night in Las Palmas, live on TV Canarias at 8.30pm. In the first couple of weeks of the season ticket campaign a total of 2,400 have been purchased, a slow start, but with the first home match set for Sunday 2nd September, sales will pick up. More signings are on their way according to director of football Quique Medina, a creative midfielder and a goalscorer being the priorities. Chrisantus, Vitolo and Vicente Gómez. Marino were not completely overwhelmed however and pressured hard, especially on the counter attack, Balduino especially looking good and almost equalled the score at one point. In the end the Gran Canarian team’s better level of fitness showed. Perhaps it was this that led the club to swap the Antonio Domínguez for the Tenerife Top Training installations in the run up to the league games. It’s to be hoped that the ceding of Reverón and then Sandro Rodríguez from CD Tenerife has gone some way to improving relationships between the two clubs which were soured when Cristo Marrero returned to the blanquiazules. As we go to press, it’s unlikely that the opening game of CD Marino will be televised as the club believe that the offer for the season from Televisión Canaria of €10,000 is far from satisfactory.

sional trainer Angelo Dundee has always had a high praise for the amateur trainers, and nothing but admiration for the amateurs and the amateur programme, which gives young boxers plenty of foundation.

An amateur’s biggest aim is to compete in the Olympic Games which have spawned many of the greatest fighters of all time, the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, george Foreman and Lennox Lewis, in the heavyweight ranks alone. Although these fighters became legends through their exploits in the professional ranks, one or two boxers became boxing legends when they were amateurs. In the 1956

Melbourne games, Hungary’s Laszlo Papp became the first man to win three Olympic Gold Medals in boxing. the only man besides Papp to win three successive olympic boxing golds was a Cuban fighter, teofilo Stevenson who died last June. Cuba has produced a number of outstanding boxers. After Castro banned professional boxing, Cuba became a powerhouse in amateur boxing, and dominated international competition for the next 40 years.
