Mercenary denials

s we go to press, a gunboat built in Britain for the Omani navy and now owned by a former Royal Navy officer remains under guard in Tenerife as the authorities continue their checks on its background and status.

Now known as ‘Defender’, the 127foot fast patrol boat initially docked in Los Cristianos after blowing a gasket in the Atlantic. The authorities here ordered it to be diverted to a secure spot in Santa Cruz under escort by an armed Spanish navy vessel and several checks have been carried out since to establish whether the two cannons on board are in working order. It is believed the former warship has been re-registered as a pleasure boat by its new owner, ex-RN lieutenant Chris Enmarsh, who has denied media claims that he and his crew are mercenaries. The boat remains in Santa Cruz under 24-hour surveillance and well away from the port’s cruise ship area.

or the first time ever, on May 26, the volunteer fire brigade of Adeje will be having an open day and welcoming all-comers into their fire station. True to their natures, this first day will be in aid of others; the disadvantaged in Adeje will benefit, hopefully, from over a thousand kilos of food. From 11am onwards you can have a tour of the station, there’s a bouncy castle for children and, in exchange for a kilo of dried food, you will be given a mini-kebab and a cold soft drink or beer. The fun will go on until around 5pm and in the late afternoon there is a giant paella. If you forget to go shopping, drinks and ‘pinchos’ will be on sale. Members of the brigade will give you a guided tour of the installations, including all the fire-engines, the living / waiting areas, control room and the ‘cage’ - a rather

overawing and claustrophobic space where they train for finding victims of fires in full kit and in the dark. They will also explain how they work and how they fund themselves. Be sure to take along a camera as you will be able to try the helmets, jackets and other pieces of equipment on. It’s sure to be a fun day for all ages and definitely one for the diary. Be there and help them achieve their target of at least 1,500 kilos of food to be donated to the Adeje Social Services Department for those in need in the borough.

cologists here and in Germany have joined forces to press for a more efficient returnable container system to be introduced to ease the mountains of rubbish in landfills. Members of several leading green associations have received the backing of influential German group Deutsche Umwelthilfe in their campaign to have vending-type machines installed to encourage people to return bottles, tins and cartons in exchange for a small refund. Under the system, which is popular in Germany, a levy of around €0.20 is charged for ever y product sold in such containers but the buyer can obtain a refund by depositing the containers in a machine

groups have not received the funding they were promised and are on the verge of shutting their doors for good. “We have to pay our staff but don’t have a single euro to do so” added the spokesperson. The case has been taken up by the opposition Popular Party (PP) here, which says the government is “deliberately dismantling” all the good care work put in place in recent years.

The scheme has achieved a return rate of over 90 per cent in Germany and other environment-conscience countries, much higher than the current recycling rate for containers in the Canaries (around 15 per cent). One of the Spanish ecology groups, Global Nature, says the Canarian authorities have done little

beyond promises to implement the scheme. Spokesman Eduardo de Miguel said the group had written to the regional government repeatedly to ask what steps had been taken to put into practice the unanimous agreement adopted by the regional Parliament back in February to study the feasibility of the refund system here.

More worryingly, an estimated 118,000 households across the islands do not have earned income of any kind, thus increasing the pressure on the authorities with decreasing budgets to help provide basic needs. The news has resulted in calls to end austerity politics and switch to job-creating measures.

The on-off story of the planned link road connecting Tenerife’s two motorways has taken another turn. Local media reports state that the cash-strapped Canarian government is now prepared to borrow €15 million to complete sections of the dual carriageway planned between Adeje and Santiago del Teide and kick start the project after more delays. Senior members of the regional government and the island’s Cabildo joined the mayors of towns in south Tenerife to express their support for the project, which they say has been held up by infrastructure budget cuts ordered by Madrid.

Legal changes

Residence certificates As we go to press we are still trying to confirm the rumoured changes in residence certificate requirements. If there were to be changes to the residency rules, we would have expected to be notified by the British Embassy as they have kept us informed of other legal changes affecting residents such as prescription charges. Initially we were referred to their website where no mention of renovation is made and on further enquiry we were told, “The British Consulate cannot officially confirm or deny any of this information as we don’t own it. For clarification you should approach the appropriate authorities”. The Spanish Ministry for the Interior website was also lacking in information and we are waiting for clarification from Spanish authorities here.

Transport

Soaring air fares

A new survey by the regional government’s Tourism Observatory shows that average fares from Britain have risen most steeply over the last year, with increases on some routes over 50 per cent. According to the study, average prices for a return ticket from UK airports now stand at €359 compared to €238 during the first quarter of 2012. Routes to Gran Canaria have been worst hit by the rises. Flights from Germany and mainland Spain have also increased in price although significantly less than from Britain, the survey shows.

Education strike

A nationwide strike in schools and universities has been called for May 9. National bodies representing teachers, students and parents have reached an agreement to stage a massive day of protest against the ongoing cutbacks and the planned reform of the Education Act. The strike will be the first ever to affect all levels of public sector education, from nursery schools to universities, on the same day. Most facilities for the younger members of the

However, working parents in particular are advised to check with schools to avoid unpleasant surprises on the day.

security over 20 years. Five of the schools will be built in fast-growing parts of Tenerife (Arico, Adeje, San Miguel de Abona, Arona and Candelaria) and the other nine will be distributed among the other islands, with the exception of La Gomera. Authorisation for the unusual scheme has still to be given formally by Madrid but the Department of Education is confident it will be allowed to proceed with the tender and have the schools ready within a few years.

Trying to feed the children

What was supposed to be a well-meaning initiative to help needy families during the summer is turning out to be something of a political minefield.

naries are refusing to foot the bill for the extra services required in premises which come under their jurisdiction, as is the case of most of the schools selected for the summer opening programme. It is expected that around 8,000 youngsters from families where neither parent is in employment would benefit from the scheme. Previously the very profile of the beneficiaries had drawn fire in certain quarters, with some arguing that there is no need for provision to be arranged for the children if their parents are at home to look after them, whereas families with working parents must pay to have their children enrolled in summer activities or courses.

A new study of the employment prospects shows that far from creating the “thousands of jobs” claimed by oil giant Repsol, an offshore oil industry in the waters off Lanzarote and Fuerteventura would be no more important than an average-sized hotel in terms of employment for the community. “Many of the jobs would be low-skilled and temporary” argues the government in the study, which it says adds further solid reasons -in addition to the main environmental concerns- to block the plans.

Beach weddings

Several of Gran Canaria’s most popular beaches will be able to offer wedding ceremonies as an added attraction if plans by the council in San Bartolomé de Tirajana are approved. Local officials say they are close to obtaining government approval to allow couples to tie the knot and hold their wedding receptions on beaches such as San Agustín and Meloneras. The prospect has delighted the tourist industry,

which believes the weddings could make Gran Canaria a serious competitor for exotic destinations which have attracted wedding tourism for many years. According to spokesman Tom Smulders, “beach weddings are in great demand among Europeans but their potential has not been explored properly here due to red-tape issues”. The council expects formal approval from the Spanish government’s Department of Coasts within two months.

Strange as it may seem, a popular food billed as probably the most Canarian dish of all is made almost entirely from cereals imported from as far away as Canada. Tenerife daily La Opinión reports that the hugely popular ‘gofio’ toasted flour which is regularly, for example, added to soups or taken on its own with milk as a cereal by many youngsters, can no longer be considered authentic Canarian gastronomy even though its origins date back to preHispanic times, when the Guanches (native populations) used barley and the stems of certain ferns to make the finely ground flour-meal. Designated a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) not so long ago, around 3,000 tons of Canarian Gofio are consumed every year here, but it appears that only around five per cent of the cereal grain used to make it are local, with the rest imported from Canada, Argentina, Germany and France, among other countries. Flour mills say they have no choice but to import given the steep decline in cereal farming in recent years and the high demand for the product among Canarians and visitors to the islands.

ot for the first time, other islands have been beaten to the draw on a new initiative.

Canarian gastronomy

Las Palmas Council has won its battle to overturn a court order banning the holding of big Carnival events in the city’s flagship Santa Catalina Park. The ban was imposed by the regional High Court, which upheld a complaint by local residents at the noise and nuisance generated by the several weeks of revelry that take place every February/March. However, Spain’s Supreme Court has now decided that the original complaint referred to a very specific activity in a concrete location (the food and drink stalls on the boulevard next to the Park) and the prohibition had wrongly extended this to include the entire Park. The news has been warmly welcomed by the Council, which was forced to shift several key Carnival events elsewhere while the appeal was under consideration. “We have won our Carnival back at last and justice has been done even if it has taken a long time” said a source.

Again according to Canarias Ahora, an attempt by one of the pair to sell off valuable family paintings worth millions of euros in 2006 had to be settled by judges.

his announcement has been an annual event since the year 2000, when the helicopter that the island had had since nineteen ninety-five was withdrawn, for reasons that were never made clear. Curbelo says, “We won‘t give up with our continued requests to both regional and national governments. They have to listen to us this time. It‘s common sense to prevent fire, rather than suffer the consequences of a delayed response when fire-fighting aircraft have to be sent in from outside. “Footing the bill for a massive firefighting presence to come from outside when everything’s got out of control makes absolutely no sense”. Indeed. Neither is it logical to send away already assembled outside help in the middle of a serious fire, apparently in order to go on holiday, and then have them all come back again after really serious damage has been done, but Our Leader has somehow emerged unscathed from his action and sensibly confines himself to the helicopter issue. To add weight to the helicopter argument, the Cabildo has facilitated information about the - wait for it - 996 fires suffered on the island between 1983 and 2012. 995 of these fires were started intentionally, revealing an obvious issue which needs addressing. Why do the islanders of La Gomera apparently feel such a need to destroy their island? Bear in mind that they are not alone. Quick research after last year‘s dreadful fire here revealed that 86 per cent of fires everywhere on the planet are intentionally started. Furthermore, a high percentage of them are started by exactly those who we may imagine to be least inclined to light them: firefighters, of both the employed and unemployed variety. Leaving aside the case

La Gomera‘s Cabildo president, Casimiro Curbelo, has announced his renewed intention to procure a helicopter for the island.

tentionally started fires is also an ancient one. The Spanish conquerors commented on “this unfortunate habit” of the islanders over 500 years ago. “The native custom of using fire does not confine itself to clearing land for agriculture. They, at every turn, will set afire forest and meadow to vex us”, lamented the hated Peraza the Elder in La Gomera, in 1482. On the island, there is still a widely acknowledged, if not accepted, awareness that fires will be lit in certain places, at certain points of the year. People also reckon they know who’s guilty, but small communities are tight, despite routine infighting, and nobody would dream of naming names, though last year’s fire has taxed this collusion to its limits. The dates of these now traditional fires often coincide with early summer fiestas, which in turn coincide with the start of summer, guess what, fire-watch contracts which are a hotly - excuse the pun-contended source of local employment.

of employed fire-fighters, whose motives can only be guessed at, apart from the obvious one of drumming up a bit of action to justify their continued employment, a cursory look at why unemployed fire-fighters start fires reveals that they primarily do it to protest at their unemployed status by, ironically, highlighting the vulnerability of areas they destroy. In the USA, for exam-

Perhaps a little something in the DNA is also responsible on this island which was never entirely subjugated by conquerors, unlike the rest of the islands.

ple, two unemployed firemen, caught with cans of petrol at the scene of their former work depot last summer, purported to be “despondent at their loss of income”, when they were made redundant and, in their defence proffered the incredible, “they would have needed us if all this forest (they were in ancient redwood national park in Northern California) had burnt. This is a

very sensitive and volatile area, especially in such dry conditions. More firefighters are essential. It makes no sense to lay us off with such high fire alert conditions in force.” This is an example of a convoluted logic that hopefully won’t catch on elsewhere in these days of high unemployment. In La Gomera‘s case, as in most of the Canary Islands, the problem of in-

Benjamín, for example, obviously had his own agenda. At the age of 93, which is how old he was when he managed to start blazes at three different sites on one afternoon, his chances of a summer job were surely minimal to start with, so some older grudge must have been niggling him. It would be comforting to suppose that since fires have always been lit and nobody has died in one since the tragedy of 1984, when victims were caught by a change in the wind and died, we could, albeit regrettably, afford to let the practice continue, but there are important differences now that make the helicopter an absolute necessity and an end to the practice of fire-lighting essential. One difference is in its infancy, but potentially important. Climatic conditions are changing and, although there have always been drier and wetter cycles, last year’s drought had all the islands in tinder-dry state. There were fires all over the Canaries and, with such extremes at least “likely” to continue, starting fires has to stop. Schools and colleges need to make fledgling fireraisers aware of the dangers and criminality of the practice. The other, very important, difference is that today’s islanders are prevented from using local knowledge to fight the fires they start. This came as a shock to everyone last year, when Guardia Civil not only forced householders to evacuate, but imposed fines of €600 on anyone found trying to fight fires themselves. La Gomera is the only forested island without its own helicopter and Curbelo’s campaign to get one requires all our support, despite the low esteem in which he seems to be generally now held.

Scottish couple have been found guilty of causing the death of their 16-month baby by allowing him access to a lethal mix of drugs during a holiday in Tenerife. Robert Cormack and Corinna Reid were convicted of involuntary manslaughter by the jury after

a trial which lasted much longer than the originally scheduled three days, due to a series of technical and other hitches. The pair were found to have been negligent in allowing their son Aden, aged 16 months, to take a lethal mixture of methadone and an anti-depres-

sant (diazepam) which caused his death in a Playa Paraíso hotel in January 2007. The baby’s death was originally thought to have been from natural causes but the defendants were later extradited back to Tenerife after toxicology studies revealed high concentrations of the drugs in

Shell blast For those who’ve never heard it the sound of the bucio being blown is haunting and unforgettable. It is a kind of conch shell which has been opened up carefully at the sharp end so that it can be used as an instrument. The native dwellers of the islands used it in rituals, for communication across the difficult terrain and in battle as a warning or a rallying cry. The sound of the bucio sang out across Icod towards the end of April during their Resonar del Bucio celebration. The event is from the Noches de San Juan (from San Juan de la Rambla), a commemoration organised by icodense Ricardo González, and brings together bucio players from several Tenerife boroughs.

Asset reporting impact

he impact of the new asset repor ting requirement on foreigners living here has received coverage in local daily Diario de Avisos, which has tried to estimate the possible consequences for the island’s large British community. As has been widely publicised in English-language papers and forums in recent months, tax residents in Spain owning properties and holding bank accounts and shares abroad had until 30 April to submit full details of all the assets to the Spanish tax authorities, provided the value of each category exceeded €50,000. The Diario de Avisos contacted tax officials to find out how the process had gone and also enlisted the help of Ten-

erife-based financial expert Paul Montague from Blevins Franks to obtain an idea of the numbers of Britons affected by the controversial obligation. According to Montague, the requirement is seen as “very intrusive” by Britons, many of whom have spent sleepless nights ensuring they filled in the forms correctly to avoid the massive fines applicable for breaches of the new rule. “The whole thing was rushed and people should have been given more time. I had clients who had to fly back to Britain to get their deeds to be able to fill in the boxes concerning the date of purchase of UK property owned. One old

person was worried at not knowing exactly the date she opened her bank account back in 1947 but the information was needed for the all-important form” said Montague. The month of April proved hectic for his office, which dealt with an average of 15 enquiries every day from Britons concerned at the implications of the reporting requirement. “Many have decided to spend less time here as of now so as not to be deemed tax resident and that means less business for bars, restaurants and shops in the areas where they have their holiday homes” Montague told the Diario de Avisos, adding that he “doubted that Hacienda had the resources to process all the information received” during the last few weeks.

Just days after massive public pressure forced Arona council to take down newly-erected signs ordering people not hiring sunbeds to keep out of the reserved section of the public beach, it has emerged that the company awarded the contract to provide the beds and umbrellas may be cashing in more than it should. The contract, which brings in approximately €1.3 million for Arona in return for the exclusive right to operate the service, allows the firm to place a maximum of 1,200 sunbeds, with a reserved space of eight square metres for each to ensure hirers have privacy

to sunbathe. However, the opposition Popular Party (PP) in Arona says a spot check carried out some weeks ago in the presence of a notary showed that the limit had been exceeded by nearly 25 per cent. “Not only is the

firm hiring out more sunbeds than it is legally allowed to, but it has not paid the full amount of the fee to the council” says the PP, which is demanding answers to what it describes as “serious irregularities” at Las Vistas.

fter watching how many of the local residents, Canarian and foreigners alike, have been struggling due to the crisis, a young English woman decided she would like to help out. Maria Beásley has been resident in Tenerife for the last 14 years and has close friendships in the community with many of those who are hardest hit by the economic downturn. For example, many with young families are finding it hard to cope in these difficult times and Maria found this particularly distressing. So it was that, after watching many of her friends struggling to afford anything but the absolute necessities, she set her mind to finding what she could do to help. Maria soon realised she indeed had something to offer, something very practical and which could provide a way via which people of limited means could enjoy a slightly higher quality of life. She began to gather nearly-new, secondhand and end of line products from near and afar. She soon found herself with a stock of useful and

EDITION 694 :: 03/05/2013 - 16/05/2013 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

Maria and Chiki

Everything for house and home

Second wave

Sometimes, some people do something just because it is right: pure and simple. good quality items which she would be able to sell-on inexpensively to help out her local community. This wasn’t the only force driving Maria though. Her much loved sister, Angela, had very recently died of a brain tumour at only 40 years old and that had spurred Maria into action, making her want to do something to help others even more.

Her first shop, opened on the first anniversary of Angela’s death, was in an Adeje suburb and soon became extremely popular. After a successful 14 months it became evident that Maria needed somewhere bigger and, after carefully looking around, she chose the site for her new premises

There are plenty of toys for young ones

in a wonderfully central area in the same town. Her new Segunda Ola shop is situated at the top of Calle Manuel Bello Ramos, next to the Ninfas Infantil and Juvenil shop and bang opposite the recycling bins, something which Maria finds highly appropriate. After all, that is what the reuse of secondhand goods is all about. When we no longer want or need our furniture or clothes etc., it is a terrible shame to simply throw them away, especially when there is plenty of life in them and they could prove useful for many a year yet. This recycling mentality is a very British thing and something that has slowly, over the last 10 years

or so, seeped into the society here. There has always been the practice of leaving useful items next to the bins, of course. This allowed anyone who passed by during the day the chance of grabbing a fine freebie, but it also meant that these things were only around for a few hours before being carted off by the bin men. With the upsurge of charity and second hand shops it has become a much more organised affair and many a person is now looking with a different eye at items they would not previously have considered worthy to pass on to others, never mind how possibly useful. So, whilst some of the goods in Maria’s shop are donated, the majority of them Maria has bought. She offers a fair price for all useful goods and will even pick them up. This, consequently, doubles the positive effect on the community: those wishing to make a few pennies have somewhere to take their goods, and those in need of something can buy it at a reasonable price. Maria won’t buy just anything of course, as she insists that everything

in the shop is good quality, but she will make a genuine effort to help when needed. She will also buy to order so customers can let her know of an item they need and she will do her best to find an example at the best price for them. Accordingly, to walk into La Segunda Ola is to enter an eclectic emporium of bargains. You will find everything from sofas, chairs and chests of drawers, to clothes, lamps, shoes and even designer wear. There is a particular emphasis on children’s clothes and toys. In times of crisis parents can struggle to feed and clothe several youngsters, as well as sometimes being plagued with guilt at not being able to provide all the treats they would wish to bestow on their offspring. So a large section of the shop is dedicated to babies and children. First there is rack after rack of excellent clothes; many of them still in their original wrappers from where Maria has been able to snap up closing down stock, for example. This is particularly useful as, let’s face it,

The shop has a fine mix of goods

Baby wear galore

babies and small children can get through an inordinate amount of clothes as they swiftly grow out of each piece. There are also plenty of toys and accessories such as prams, cots and car seats. But it’s not only about the buying and selling. Maria’s shop has developed into something akin to a local social centre. Everyone is welcome to drop in for a chat, a cut of tea and to pass the time of day. There is a play area for children, complete with mini cinema, so they have plenty to do while their parents pass half an

hour or so in friendly conversation. Mums are welcome to feed babies and change nappies, and Maria also has in store a supply of small goodies so each child usually receives a little treat - she just can’t help herself. Even dogs are welcome: Maria has her own, very friendly and cute, four legged friend and neither Maria nor Chiki mind if others want to come and visit. However, don’t let that make it sound like it’s an unorganised free for all: the shop is spotless and, because Maria is so open and friendly, that garners the kind of respect that means

A fashion show will be next

visitors treat the space well. One of Maria’s future projects is to organise a fashion show in her premises – all with secondhand clothes of course: yet another way of showing how it can not only often mean good quality, but fashionable and fun too.

Visit La Segunda Ola at Calle Manuel Bello Ramos, 38B, Adeje. Monday to Friday 10.30am – 2pm and 4.30pm – 8pm. Call Maria on 679 523 707 for more information.

Making a will

member is that prevention is not only better than cure in this situation it is also less costly than cure.

Inheritance News from De Cotta Law Intestacy – dying without a valid will

Valid wills The Spanish notarial system provides more security for those who make a valid will. This is because there is a Central Wills Registry where each notarial will is registered by the notary. The original will is always kept on the Protocol (archive) of the notary where you sign the will. The information at the Central Wills Registry will be the date and place where you made the will; your full name and date of birth and the names of your parents will assist with identifying you. A valid English will must be witnessed by two witnesses who are physically present when you sign. These witnesses should not stand to benefit from your will or be family members. However although wills can be registered in England there is no obligation to do so and most wills are kept at home or with the local solicitor in

England who prepared them for you.

Leaving Spanish assets in a will It is always advisable to execute a valid Spanish will before a notary if you own Spanish assets. The reason this is important is that property does not generally pass to your surviving spouse automatically in Spain. In the UK you can generally notify the Land Registry, the banks etc to transfer property into your sole name and in some cases where the estate is not of a high value no other formalities are required. If these are required an application can be made for Letters of Administration on Intestacy. This is very different in Spain as the property passes independently to your

appointed heirs and there is a procedure required to prove who should receive it. Spanish law applies the law of your nationality to your estate. Therefore if you die leaving Spanish assets and have not made a valid will in either country your heirs need to prove firstly the law that should be applied on intestacy and secondly that they are entitled to inherit. This applies to your spouse even though you may be joint owners of the assets. For some time we have been advising British nationals in Spain that it is wise to state the law you wish to be applied to your estate. While it would be difficult to overturn the application of your national law to your estate in wills made with this clause there will be added certainty in 2014. This is when the European legislation changes to state that you can elect the law to be applied to your succession and that this will be binding. The important thing to re-

According to the new law, drafted and passed by the Spanish Directorate-General of Traffic (Dirección General de Tráfico) and the Ministry of the Interior, the payment

of traffic fines in cash will no longer be accepted, and only payment by debit or credit card will be allowed. The authorities have cited security and economic efficiency as the reasons behind their decision due to the fact that once this new measure has been introduced; the risks and expenses involved with transporting money, will no longer exist. According to the DGT, the measure will only apply to

the payment of fines. All the other administrative operations carried out at Provincial Traffic Headquarters, such as processing or renewing a driving licence, can still be

Although Provincial Headquarters will no longer accept payments in cash, drivers can still pay their fines in cash at any post office or Banco Santander branch. In this case, drivers will still be required to provide and attach the fine reference number.

Protecting your savings S

ince the Cyprus banking actions hit the headlines in March, we have been getting many enquiries from people concerned about the safety of their bank deposits. Under an EU Directive, all European countries have a guarantee scheme to refund bank depositors up to €100,000 should a bank fail. In Spain we have the Fondo de Garantía de Depósitos. If you have savings above €100,000 the excess may be lost, though you may receive additional funds following any distribution of assets as part of the insolvency process. In Cyprus the situation is a little different. The initial

plan to tax even accounts under €100,000 was thankfully rejected, and European leaders have since emphasised that savings under €100,000 should always be protected. However, deposits over €100,000 in the country’s two largest banks will suffer heavy losses, quite possibly 50 per cent or even more! Those who lost money in the Icelandic banking collapse in 2008 learned this lesson the hard way, but for many other people the threat had receded. You know it can happen, but do not really expect it to. The Cyprus disaster is a stark reminder that it can. So what can you do to protect your savings? Remember that cash is not a ‘risk free’ asset. Besides the possibility of institutional failure (what has effectively happened in Cyprus), interest rates have

Credit Usien/Wikipedia

By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

been at historic lows for years and inflation has been eroding the value of bank deposits. The UK action group, Save our Savers, calculated that since the Sterling base rate was cut to 0.5 per cent, UK savers have lost £220 billion

through reduced interest and the effects of inflation. This, they say, is an extraordinary cut of 20 per cent of the entire value of cash savings. I would advise against keeping more than €100,000 in

Cash is not a ‘risk free’ asset one banking group. Note that the compensation limit in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man is lower at £50,000, and they have a cap on the amount they will pay out. It has always been very important to diversify your investable capital over different assets. This reduces risk. You need to think of the cash as an investment asset in the same way as shares, bonds and property, and have suitable diversification to spread the risk. Finally, when you deposit money in the bank it forms part of the bank’s balance sheet. Seek advice on alternative arrangements where you can ‘ring-fence’

your assets from the institution holding them, so that if it fails, your money is protected. As always, your investment decisions, whether to invest in shares, cash, or anything else, should be based on your personal objectives, circumstances, time horizon and risk tolerance. Speak to an experienced wealth manager like Blevins Franks to get tailored advice, on the best asset allocation for you and as well as on asset protection.

t was organised as part of the Friendly Tourism campaign to teach schoolchildren the value of tourism to the island, to show them where their friends and family work and the job opportunities available to them in the future if we look after our tourists. This is a more technical visit than others we have accompanied them on in previous years, beginning with a brief introduction and a video. Then it was off to the apron and onto a bus to have the various parts of a plane explained, the same with one of the sea-rescue helicopters and then away on a visit of the boundaries of the airport, with a general explanation of how it worked including a close of up a landing and take-off.

e n r y P u r c e l l ’s delightful opera has been adapted for children and is sure to appeal to all the family. The Fairy Queen, written in1692, is a masque, or semiopera: an English 17th century music genre that combines the spoken word with song and dance. The score was based on William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

It is based in the world of the fairies and tells the story of the two lovers Hermia and Lysander. As Hermia’s father, Egeus, is opposed to their union, the couple flees to the fairy wood in Athens, pursued by Helena and Demetrius, who try to make them return. All kinds of enchantments and discomforting situations take place between the humans and the magical beings who

live in the wood, though all turns out well in the end. First performed in 1692 at the Dorset Garden Theatre, The Fairy-Queen was composed just three years

before Purcell’s death at the age of 35. The score was subsequently lost and only rediscovered in the early 1900s. See it on May 11, 6pm, or May 12, 12pm and 6pm. Tickets cost €10 and can be bought at: www.auditoriodetenerife.com or by visiting the box office at the Santa Cruz auditorium Monday to Friday 10am – 3pm and Saturdays 10am – 2pm.

n its first six months on air the English Time radio show has established itself as an informative and welcome part of the ex-pat day. Although the programme is focused on news and views from Adeje and South Tenerife, there is a Canaries-wide and even international flavor, with input from local councillors, regular contributors, such as Colin Kirby and British blogger Janet Anscombe, as well as involvement from journalists from national and local publications such as Island Connections, Canarian Weekly and Diario de Avisos According to presenter Clio O’Flynn, originally from Ireland and now resident in Callao Salvaje, the last six months have

been a fascinating, challenging and rewarding time, and not surprisingly. The programme, in line with the policy of Radio Sur Adeje, sees itself very much as a public service provider, and in recent weeks devoted time to bringing listeners information on making tax returns and the new legislation covering the declaration of overseas assets, as well as clarifying issues such as driving licence renewal and, most recently, the confusion over a by-law regarding laundry and barbecues on balconies. See the English Time blog (http://englishtimeadeje.com/) or facebook page and listen to the programme on Mondays and Thursdays, on Radio Sur Adeje, 107.9fm.

N

o matter how well a house or apartment meets your criteria, you will not be content there if you find you have simply bought in the wrong place. Of course, it is easier if you are renting but, even then, finding another property, moving and starting all over again still involves a lot of effort, time and money. When buying, either to live in the property or as an investment, it is then vital to get it right first time, so one of the most important things before committing yourself is to do a little research. Whilst some information can be garnered from the internet and magazines, the best option is to actually spend some time in the area.

Wild and wonderful

Location,

location, location

One of the most important aspects of buying or renting a property is its location. The new beach area is really quite lovely

With this in mind we decided to take a good look around at the most popular neighbourhoods in the south of Tenerife to see exactly what they have to offer.

Callao Salvaje This edition we are visiting Callao Salvaje, the most northerly town of the Costa Adeje resort. Callao Salvaje, which means Wild Coast, is situated alongside last edition’s featured town, Playa Paraiso. It is around 13 km from Playa de Las Américas and 20 km south of Los Gigantes.

Las Barandas’ delightful pool

There are some beautiful sunsets

Just like its neighbour, it is reached via a good road which is well sign-posted from the main coast road. However, although the two towns are close in proximity, they both have their own distinct personalities. For instance, one of the most recent additions to Callao Salvaje is its new beach, Playa de Ajabo, opened last year. As well as the good sized sand and bathing area there are walkways, viewing points and gardens which can all be easily reached via the natural stone paths which are suitable for disabled access. There is also now a small

plaza and café in the same area and the whole has made for a very agreeable spot indeed. Of course, the whole town comes with an uninterrupted Atlantic Ocean backdrop, with fabulous views across to the island of La Gomera and beyond, not to mention some incredible sunsets as it

There are plenty of different types of property to choose from

faces due west. There are still plenty of traditional banana plantations around the edges of the town as well and it is great to see the swathes of huge leaves swaying in the sea breezes. Although this part of the island is quite an arid environment,

between the native cacti, fig trees, palm and false-pepper trees, along with some splendid garden and public area projects, there is plenty of attractive greenery to admire. As a tourist zone it boasts its fair share of good hotels, including the four star Grand Hotel Callao with its typical Canarian architecture, surrounded by 54,000m2 of gardens. The Sueño Azul resort is also very popular and has a number of excellent villas with gardens. This area has also been proposed for a new Thalasotherapy

facility. Though, setting and amenities aside, one of the area’s best points is the true sense of community that exists in the town. There are plenty of social activities which nicely link the cosmopolitan population together and there is also a strong ex-pat church base. There are good local nursery school facilities available, and the town is also home to the Let’s Dance! school where you can learn anything from ballroom, tap and ballet to Latin and even cheerleading! Run by fully qualified English speaking teachers, the school provides professional classes for toddlers to pensioners, so is handy for anyone who wants a little energetic fun. Entertainment wise, thanks to that community spirit, local fiestas are celebrated aplenty and with gusto and there is a good range of restaurants and bars. From French cuisine through to tea houses and classic and local dishes from fine restaurants such as La Romántica, there is something here for everyone. As far as property goes there is once again a fine array to choose from. There are a number of frontline studios and apartments which are built right onto the rocks standing over the sea, including the Las Barandas apartments with their fabulous pool, as well as plenty of apartments, town houses and villas to suit all budgets, and even some excellent deals on resale timeshares in Sueño Azul at the moment. Towards the edges of town stand the newer developments and there are many luxurious villas, often with lush gardens, to choose from. Along with Playa Paraiso, Callao Salvaje was also recently ‘adopted’, as the English legalese goes, by the Adeje council, so it will also benefit from enhanced services and maintenance of public areas in the future. Callao Salvaje seems then a peaceful oasis away from the busier resorts further down the coast. Yet, at only 20 minutes from Las Américas and Los Cristianos, 30 from the Reina Sofia International Airport and just one hour away from the capital city, Santa Cruz, Callao Salvaje and neighbouring Playa Paraiso would perhaps be the perfect choice for someone seeking the relaxed atmosphere of a village, but with everything else close to hand.

Gardening ::

P

lants make their own food via photosynthesis, but need fertilising on a regular basis to ensure they have all the necessary nutrients they need to function properly. Basically, plants need carbon dioxide, water and light energy, normally from the sun, to produce chemical energy that is stored as sugar which can be used to fuel its activities. But they also need certain nutrients in order to be able to do this properly and thus grow healthy and strong. Without them plants soon become ill and susceptible to disease, so fertiliser is added to the soil to provide those essential elements.

Necessary nutrients Plants can obtain the carbon, oxygen and hydrogen they need from air and water. All the other nutrients dissolve in water and are taken up by the plant’s roots or, to a slight extent, by its leaves. The three main necessary nutrients, called macronutrients, are nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Nitrogen forms an important part of the green chlorophyll pigment which is critical for photosynthesis. It is essential for healthy foliage growth and is a fundamental element of plant cells’ proteins. Phosphorus is necessary to form those cells, and thus promotes the development of seedlings, root growth, flowering and formation of fruits and seeds. Potassium (often called Potash in gardening terms) is used for photosynthesis as well as being important for the plant’s water uptake, overall strength and disease resistance. It also improves the quality of flowers, fruits and seeds. There are also many micronutrients which are necessary for healthy plants. Calcium, for instance, forms the cell wall structure; Sulphur is part of plant protein and Magnesium is important in photosynthesis. Then there are trace elements such as Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Copper and Boron which are all essential, but needed only in minute quantities.

Lawns need extra fertiliser

release their contents over time so only need to be applied occasionally. However, they don’t distribute nutrients evenly throughout the soil, so generally speaking liquid and slow-release fertilisers are much better. Liquid fertilisers are added to the water before administering it. Depending on the make, in the summer growing period they are often applied a couple or three times a week, reduced to once a week in winter. They provide a steady supply of nutrients that is easy to control and which nicely permeates the whole of the soil in the pot. Slow-release fertilisers are a relatively new thing. They consist of small particles surrounded by a protective membrane such as cellulose or a polymer resin coating. The action of water and micro-organisms in the soil slowly breaks the membrane down, allowing the fertiliser to seep through. The rate of nutrient release is often controlled by temperature, which means that more nutrients are released when the plants are actively growing. They aren’t cheap initially, but they do last a long time so it does balance out somewhat, and may be an option for those who sometimes forget to ‘feed’ their plants. This type of fertiliser is also very good for use on a larger scale.

Feed me! Roses and other plants need specialist fertilisers

are also plants, such as camellias and African violets that need specific levels of particular nutrients.

Pot plants

There are various types of general purpose fertilisers that are useful in most situations as they contain the basic nutrients that plants need to grow. Better quality ones will also contain a range of the micronutrients as well. However, if you have reason to suspect your soil may be lacking in certain nutrients, a simple test can be bought from garden suppliers which will tell you exactly which ones are deficient, and specialist fertilisers can be used to balance the levels. There

Unlike an outdoor garden, where plants can send out roots searching for food, the nutrients available to a potplant are strictly limited by the quality of the soil in the container and they therefore need a little extra care. New potting soil comes with fertiliser and other enhancements mixed in, but after usually six to eight weeks the plant will have consumed the nutrients and will need to be fertilised from then on in. For container plants, general fertilisers come in several different varieties: liquid, sticks, tablets, and slowrelease forms. Sticks and pills are handy as they

Home made compost is one of the best organic fertilisers

Garden glory Although garden plants have greater access to nutrients, they still use up the available ones in the area, so need regular fertilising for effective growth. Some types also originate in soils with higher than average nutrient content so they will need extra, whilst others such

as fruit trees, vegetables and roses, have been bred to be highly productive so need a regular boost, and lawns in particular also need feeding frequently. As far as inorganic fertilisers go the slow-release and granular versions suit gardens best. They come in general varieties as well as particular formulations to suit different types of plants. However, they usually contain a high proportion of nitrogen which can be very damaging to roots unless there is plenty of water available to help dissolve it: so they should always be applied to a moist soil which must be well watered straight away. Too much nitrogen can also cause disproportionate vegetative growth at the expense of bud development, giving you plenty of green leaves, but few flowers or fruit. Alternatively, there are a number of organic fertilisers that can be used. Making your own compost from leaves and kitchen waste is the ideal, but not everyone has the time, space or inclination for this. However, there are a number of other options which can be bought from garden suppliers and local farmers. Animal manures are excellent for improving soil structure when they are used in relatively large quantities, such as when completely digging over a plot from scratch for example. However, their nutrient value is relatively low and varies considerably depending on the type of manure and the animal’s diet. You can also buy pellets, which are usually compressed and dried poultry and sheep manure. As the pellets break down, the nutrients release gently over a long period and are thus much more effective. Blood and bone fertilisers also provide a gentle, continuous feed, their only disadvantage being that they don’t contain potassium. Serious gardeners may even consider growing green manure crops. These are often leguminous plants, such as peas or clover, that have nitrogen-fixing symbiotic bacteria in their root nodules that fix atmospheric nitrogen in a form that other plants can use. The whole plants are then dug into the soil around established plants to provide a mix of nutrients as they decompose. Whichever way you choose, your plants will greatly appreciate a little feeding. However, it is important to remember that excessive use can be just as fatal to plants as not giving them any, so it is best to always follow the instructions carefully.

Housing Laws ::

News in Brief >>

Cabildo responds

New eviction laws T

enerife’s housing councillor José Antonio Valbuena has come out in a harsh criticism of the new eviction laws passed by the central Government. Speaking on behalf of the island council, he announced that they believed the new law has turned its back on the public as it doesn’t solve the problem of evictions and gave his view that they had thrown the 1.4 million signatures on the petition which forced the debate in parliament into the rubbish bin. He insisted that the new law, “doesn’t offer any solution to the problem of evictions and has ended the hope that millions of citizens had put in the proposition of ‘dación en pago’” that to hand over the keys ended the debt instead of the situation that so many

José Antonio Valbuena

now have of being both homeless and paying for a property they no longer own. Valbuena underlined that the objective of the law was supposed to be to make the right to a home more than a simple matter of consumption, but a social

right. If this is not the case, “part of the population is condemned to social and economic exclusion” he declared. The councillor explained that the Cabildo had already made proposals for a series of measures

designed to make the eviction process from people’s first homes more flexible. They requested adjustments in the regulations which govern the mortgage market to avoid repeating situations the like of which we have had to face until now. He continued with the reminder that the right to a home, as a fundamental human right, should inspire a socialisation of the regulations. The mortgage laws, “are a clear example of a legal framework which as it stands does not contemplate the socialisation of the regulations, as we can see with the dramatic cases of evictions suffered by hundreds of thousands of people who have undergone the results of those texts”. He also emphasised the Cabildo’s support for the introduction of laws similar to Andalusia’s (see right). Valbuena believes this measure, “should be a model for the rest of the autonomous regions to follow and is a huge advance in the social concept that having a home should be and which we should protect and support from the various administrations”.

Home expropriations

Canaries copy Andalusia

The Canarian government is to follow the example of Andalusia and temporarily confiscate repossessed homes to rent them to needy families. Regional president Paulino Rivero announced yesterday that an amendment to the Canarian Housing Law is being prepared to force banks who repossess the homes of mortgage defaulters to give them up for a three-year period in return for a fee to be fixed by an independent panel. The properties will then be released for use by poor families, with preference given to the previous owners, who will only have to pay 25 per cent of the rent, with the rest covered by the authorities. A government spokesman said the measure will address a growing social need and prevent banks from speculating with properties acquired through the misfortune of others. There has been increasing criticism of the way some entities appear to be requesting orders against only the most ‘attractive’ of the properties with owners in debt and the subsequent acquisition of said properties by friends and family of the bank’s employees. Experts have interpreted the decision as a way of forcing banks to think twice about enforcing repossession orders against defaulters during the present economic crisis.

Tasca La Cañada

An Unexpected Surprise! By John

O

n our way through the outskirts of La Orotava, we pulled up at what looked to be an inviting, morning coffee stop. Being a bit early, we were the only customers. The boss was on his mobile on the terrace, (of course he was!) but interesting aromas were already wafting from the kitchen. By the time that I had had a good look around and seen that the lady in charge was actually doing fresh preparation for the lunchtime trade, the boss was done with his call and was engaging us in conversation. We quickly established that we both lived within a kilometre of each other. We took our coffee and asked if there was a food menu for us to look at, albeit for another time. Indeed there was, and smartly presented it was too. Was he going to be open that evening? Yes, of course! And so, that same evening, after some excellent wine and a plate of tapas in the Bar Cerveceria Jagua (a very decent destination in its own right) just further down the hill, we presented ourselves for the

second time that day, to be met by a complete change of staff. No matter, the lady doing front of house was most affable, and we received a cheery wave from the kitchen brigade. Menus come in Spanish, and are separately available in English. The first dozen or so items listed are for sharing, (it’s that sort of place) and there is a small selection of individual main dishes should one not be in the right mood. Someone had clearly used their imagination to provide a menu a bit different to the usual. An example of which might be CAFÉ PALMELITA · CAFÉ MELITA

A large deep bowl came to the table laden with ripe and tasty beef tomato, asparagus, lettuce, hard boiled egg, parmesan shavings, topped with crispy bacon and drizzled with balsamic vinegar dressing. With our warm (and surely home-made) rolls came little bowls of black pepper and olive oil, again with balsamico; all a nice smart touch. The R ANT RESTAU

By the time that we called for our bill, which came to a shade over €16 a head, the place was full apart from two tables at the far end of the terrace.

Dear friends

T

he Avibo association, (Associación de Viticultores y Bodegueros de Canarias) which represents the producers of about 80 per cent of the wine made in the seven islands, agreed in late December to create a new protected origin name (D.O.P.) Vino de Calidad de las Islas Canarias (Quality wine from the Canary Islands) so that people can be assured they are buying a good local product. This is a new umbrella D.O.P. which covers the 10 which are currently in existence and the idea is to create an Islands brand for a lower cost, maximum effort marketing with guaranteed quality for the customer. The label on the back of the bottle of these wines has the Canarian Tourism logo. Around 600,000 kilos of grapes from 220 hectares of vineyards, 130 growers and about 20 wineries have qualified for inclusion in this first year. All the varieties of grapes authorised and recommended by the Canarian regional Government are allowed and a strict control is maintained from the cultivation of the grape, to processing in the winery and tasting and rating each wine fairly and concisely. Today, we travel to the island of Gran Canaria to present the first wine label under this D.O.P. – Caldera 2011 from the Bodega Hoyos de Bandama. The La Coba family have been growing fruit trees and grape vines since the 17th century in Gran Canaria and have

However, it was in 2003 when the family began the recovery and rehabilitation of the land in Bandama, Santa Brígida. The Bodega Hoyos de Bandama farm has 24 hectares of land, although only 5.5 are used for vineyards as the rest is a natural area protected by law. They grow traditional varieties such as Listán Negro, La Castellana, Albillo Criollo and Verdello which are alternated with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz. The winery has the capacity to process 100,000 kg of graves and a warehouse area with room for 120 oak barrels. At the moment they are marketing four types of wine under the Caldera brand.

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

Choose quality over quantity: Learn to incorporate small amounts in your nutritional menu but concentrate on filling your stomach with less sugar y and healthier, empowering options. Skip artificial sweeteners: They may sound like a brilliant idea, but they don’t lessen cravings for sugar and haven’t demonstrated a healthy effect on our obesity epidemic. Reward yourself!: Life is uncertain and unpredictable. Treat yourself, especially so if you’ve achieved your goals.

I suf fer from Sinus infections? Is natural nose irrigation safe? Thanks, Olivia

Dear Olivia, Nasal ir rigation using natural products (saline solutions, essence of eucalyptus, menthol or pine) has been around for centuries. Romans were experts themselves in such arts. We often recommend irrigation/steam inhalation for those with chronic sinus issues as well as for patients with chronic respirator y problems (allergies, environmental ir ritants, chronic bronchitis…) to clear away crusting and offending secretions in their respiratory passages. This ancient technique helps alleviate congestion, facial pain and pressure. Research backs up these claims, finding that nasal irrigation can be an effective way to relieve sinus symptoms when used along with standard sinus treatments. The basic explanation of how it works is that it thins mucus and helps flush it out of the nasal

passages, relieving symptoms and preventing infection. A more biological explanation for how it works has to do with tiny, minuscule hair-like structures called ‘cilia’ that line the inside of the nasal and sinus cavities. These cilia wave back and forth to push mucus either to the back of the throat where it can be swallowed, or to the nose to be blown out. Saline solution can help increase the speed and improve coordination of the cilia so that they may more effectively remove the allergens and other irritants that cause sinus problems. Few folks experience mild side effects, such as nasal irritation and stinging. Nosebleeds are

rare. Reducing the amount of salt in the solution, adjusting the frequency, and changing the temperature of the water appear to reduce side effects. Best wishes.

Dear Dr De La Flor, I have a hard time controlling my sugar cravings and I just keep on adding weight. Do you have any tips? Thanks, Georgina

Dear Georgina, Unfortunately you seem stuck on a vicious cycle. Your

sugar cravings make you more prone to consume them, making you physiologically and emotionally more attached to them. Be flexible: Rigidity is short lived. Enjoying a little of what you love to eat can help you steer clear of feeling denied, deprived. Interestingly enough ‘stressed’ spelled backwards is ‘desserts’. Do you think it’s a coincidence? … I doubt it! Snack wisely: Failing to plan is planning to fail. Keep fruit handy: You’ll get fibre and robust nutrients along with some natural sweetness. Make sure you stock up on healthy snacks like nuts, seeds, and dried fruits.

ReSOLUTION: For the next two weeks, let’s spend a few minutes pondering on this quote. Regardless of our current situation, we can all draw a positive conclusion. Let’s be bold and check what area of our life we can change to grow in health and happiness. I hope the Serenity Prayer from Francis of Assisi motivates you to set a simple, specific goal: “Lord, grant me the strength to change the things I can, the serenity to deal with the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Let’s make sure we fill every day with hard toil, with renewed passion, with love, with fun, with meaning. Talk to you in a couple weeks.

One word defined one of my Ethics teacher’s attitude back in high school – challenging. One day he threw at us a quote from British polymath Bertrand Russell. He wanted us to write a brief comment of the meaning of the following thought, “To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.” In any arena of life, in any arena of human performance, at any professional stage, sacrifice and temperance are essential to stay healthy in body and spirit…

Education

Activities and workshops Children’s health related workshops and activities are currently being held in Arafo, Candelaria, Güímar and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It’s part of a joint project between the Canarian Ministries of Health and Education. The latest round of planned activities will include over 300 primary children and 28 teachers. Using group dynamics, the topics covered for the younger children include first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and oral hygiene. The idea is to promote healthy lifestyles and offer realistic and attractive options in health. The scheme also aims to define clear objectives for promoting health and safety for the whole school community, teach people how to use the health system appropriately and to develop a sense of individual, family and society responsibility. Over 6,000 schoolchildren from all over the Islands will have taken part in the scheme by the end of the school year and,

depending on age group, the issues addressed will also cover food and nutrition, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia and obesity), sleep disorders, eating habits, oral hygiene and drug prevention. Health in brief >>

Children’s dental care

Start them young

The Canarian programme for children’s dental care will be covering more than 20,000 additional patients this year. The number of children now covered by the scheme has increased to 165,980 minors who can be attended to at any of the 211 participating centres, including 46 Canarian Oral Health Centres. There are over 500 dentists in the scheme in the seven islands, looking after children between six and 15 years of age. Treatments include an annual review of oral health, diagnosis of caries, gum problems etc; advice on hygiene and nutrition to prevent mouth diseases, preventing gum disease, preventive procedures, topical fluoride application, permanent fillings, extractions, mouth cleansing and emergency x-rays.

During an appearance at the Senate Committee on Industry, Energy and Tourism, Borrego noted that more and more domestic and international tourists are attending Spanish spas or coming on health-related visits.

year and predictions are that by 2020 that number will be increased by 90 per cent. Similarly, she said that these trips are not usually during high season so there is also an important out of season boost, and she labeled the rise in this segment as a “golden opportunity” to improve the quality and diversify the Spanish Spa offer. Borrego called health tourism a “niche of the future” noting its great capacity for growth as it will benefit from the evolution of the population of Europe, where life expectancy is increasing. She stressed the importance of the German and British clients for the Spanish market.

More than five million Americans have lost access to health care during the last recession, they argue, while in the UK, around 10,000 families have been pushed into losing their home by the government’s austerity budget. “Our politicians need to consider the serious, and in some cases profound consequences on health of economic choices,” said David Stuckler, senior researcher at the University of

Oxford and co-author of The Body Economic: Why Austerity Kills. “The damage that we’ve found includes HIV and malaria outbreaks, shortage of basic medicines, loss of access to health care and preventable epidemics of alcohol abuse, depression and suicide,” he said in a statement. “Austerity is having a devastating effect.” They cite recent effective measures taken in Sweden, as well as during the depression of the early 30s in the USA, saying that these consequences are avoidable and blaming them on political decisions.

ere are some quick and simple natural beauty tips for both men and women. Not only will you look great but you’ll feel better too!

Stand up tall For an instant beauty revival, cut out the slouch. Sit or stand up tall, shoulders back and relaxed down. This is not only much healthier for your body and can prevent back and shoulder pain: it also presents the image of a confident, relaxed person and will make you look and feel much better.

Dress to impress Whether you’re male or female, getting a new outfit or changing your style slightly can make you look and feel fresher, younger and more attractive. Also, it is important when dressing to be aware of your body type to flatter the bits you’re not so happy with and emphasise your best bits. For instance, wear a darker colour on the widest part of your body and a bright or light colour on the other areas, evening your body shape out.

Top to toe beauty

We all want to look and feel our best, though it’s not always easy to find the time when we are running around working, looking after children or studying.

Healthy looking hair brings instant beauty

Avoid the tired, haggard look by getting enough sleep

enhance your shape or, conversely, wearing a V-neck will apparently narrow the body, giving the illusion of greater length. Wearing jewellry will immediately draw the eye to that part of the body so use it strategically: if you don’t want people to notice your not-so-tight-anymore underarms then an upper arm cuff is probably not for you, but if you want to divert attention away from a large bottom, for instance, there’s nothing like a stunning necklace for bringing attention up to the top of the body. Most importantly, to instantly improve your look always wear clothes that fit well, as when they are

too tight they are very unforgiving, showing off every bulge. You also need to avoid clothes which are too baggy as they can make even the slimmest person look many kilos heavier. The ideal is for your clothes to gently skim your contours.

Sleep for beauty Sufficient sleep is not only vital for health - when we don’t get enough, especially over a prolonged period, we all tend to develop a somewhat haggard look: adding years and wrinkles to our faces, not to mention our bodies. Most people need around seven or eight hours a

night. If that isn’t possible, try and fit in a 15 minute power nap during the day: you’ll soon be looking fresher and younger. However, if you are a little sleep deprived, or have had a heavy night, there are many quick remedies which will soon reduce puffy eyes. For example, soak a couple of tea bags in water. Once they are thoroughly wet, allow the majority of the water to drain off then place one bag on each eye for five to 10 minutes. Alternatively, put some ice cubes or a frozen bag of peas in a paper towel or tea towel and place on your face for around 10 minutes.

Love your skin Late nights, excessive alcohol, overworking, smoking and a poor diet can all take their toll on our skin, leaving it dull and lifeless, so moisturising regularly is essential. Mashed up avocado can be used as a paste on face, hands, feet or body, as can a drop of olive oil or two. Olive oil is also good for treating dry skin on the feet: simply apply generously and put on a pair

Use jewellry to draw the eye away from any trouble areas

Mash up some avocado for a moisturising face mask

Gents, don’t be afraid of moisturising

Make the most of your best bits Men and women alike should invest in a good haircut

of socks before going to bed and you will wake up with wonderfully soft skin. Gents, don’t be afraid of moisturising – women love to feel soft skin too. For the best skin possible it is important to drink enough water: dry, dehydrated skin is never the best look and is just asking for wrinkles. Experts recommend around eight glasses a day, unless you are in a very hot environment or exercising, and thus sweating, a lot - in which case it should be more. However, a really good way to get a least a proportion of your fluid intake is by eating a healthy diet: one of the best sources of hydration comes from raw fruits and vegetables.

Get ahead A good haircut makes us look better instantly. If you haven’t had yours done for a while it will probably be looking straggly and uncared for

Face it

– no matter how well you brush it. Book an appointment as soon as you can, and while you are at it, if you haven’t changed your style for years, how about trying something new? Sometimes we stick with our old style out of habit when a different cut can take years off us! You could even try a new colour: subtle changes usually work best. For instance, dying your hair a few shades darker can often work wonders as dark hair reflects light better, which increases shine. There are also a number of quick fixes for when your hair isn’t looking its best and you haven’t got time for a full wash and dry. If it is greasy

simply add a small amount of talcum powder to the roots and work through: it will soak up any extra oil, giving the appearance of much brighter locks. To give hair a fresher smell rub a fabric-softener sheet along the length of your hair, starting at your roots, or put a small amount of an oil-based fragrance on your fingertips and then run them through your hair. The scented oil will linger longer than a spray version, and it won’t dry out your hairdo. If instant volume is what you need, use a hairdryer on a cool setting, turn your head upside down and aim the nozzle around randomly for a few minutes.

And some more facial tips? To get rid of zits dab them with antiinflammatory arnica and antibacterial tea tree oil before going to bed as it will reduce swelling and redness. For a radiant complexion, rub grape halves over clean skin, as the fruit acids are natural exfoliators, and if your face turns bright red after exercising simply place an ice cold towel on the back of your neck for two minutes to reduce the redness significantly. A simple yoga move will do wonders to firm your jaw, neck and throat: slowly tilt your head back, bring the bottom jaw out and up until the bottom

teeth are covering the top teeth. Hold for a few seconds, release and relax the jaw. Repeat at least four times, every day. And last, but not least, if you want to keep your skin looking as young and healthy as possible make sure that you always use suncream when you go out, not forgetting your hands!

Suncream can slow down the aging of hands

Hi everyone

Letters & pastimes

T

oday I received an email from my friends Dot and Norm, with the photograph of a very beautiful and extremely tall woman attached to it.

According to the email, she’s 7ft 4 inches tall and weighs 23 stone. The email tells you she lives in Holland, and is the tallest woman in the world. It also tells you you’re no longer overweight, you’re just too short! Now I admire the sentiments and 50 per cent of me wants to believe it, as I’ve always thought I’d be gorgeous if I was only six foot two, but like most of these types of email, the facts are a hoax. If you look closely at the photograph, the edges of the pavement don’t quite line up, and the shadows don’t match up at all. The details when you Google the lady are conspicuous by their absence, whereas the other photograph clearly is true, and all of the lady’s details are there and can be verified. There is no doubt this very pretty lady is tall, but

uring the eleven years I have lived in Tenerife as an expat it has, unfortunately, been necessary for me to go into hospital several times, for ever ything from intensive care to my recent hip replacement operation. In this day and age when it is all too easy to complain, I thought I would write to say a very big thank you to all of the staff at the Hospiten Sur (Green Clinic) hospital, from the cleaners to the Surgeons. The care they gave me was second to none; they were always cheerful and never once

they’ve photographed her next to an extremely short girl. Either way though, I’m personally still far too ‘short’ for my weight, but think to myself, I do a great deal of good in this world as I make everyone next to me feel thin, and especially make most ladies look pretty and probably, by contrast yet again, make them feel very clever too! All over the world, young couples are getting ready for a June wedding. Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May. This bath consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children, with the little babies being bathed last. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!” And they still smelled pretty good for their wedding in June. However, in case they were starting to smell, brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide any body odour. This started the custom today of

carrying a bouquet when getting married. All brides like their own house to start their married lives in, but in those days houses were very primitive. They had thatched roofs made from thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (including mice and many species of bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained the straw became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying, “It’s raining cats and dogs, be-

This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean wedding bed. And so a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection and that’s how canopy beds came into existence. So all you young brides to be, enjoy your new home however modest it may be. Because the good old days, never really were good! And remember, if life seems difficult, there’s always a silver lining. I mean, just look at me? It was hard getting over my addiction to the Hokey Cokey. But I’ve turned around - and that’s what it’s all about.

Take care of yourselves, and especially of each other.

May 3 – May 17 2013

Aries 21.03. – 20.04.

You are going to find something you thought was lost or impossible to acquire. This could be an actual object, or it could be a person who enters your life, who likes you or your work and wants to assist you.

Taurus 21.04. – 20.05. There are indications of an altered-state experience or discussions of marriage. Your success will come through friends, social outings, or social connections. Hints may be subtle, don’t miss them.

Gemini 21.05. – 21.06. Someone is going to propose a new direction, project, or enterprise for the future that concerns a possible union or partnership. Someone else you were thinking about is going to call.

Cancer 22.06. – 22.07.

You are going to get some good news from someone who cares -- something very unexpected and very much appreciated. This could also indicate an unexpected social invitation.

Leo 23.07. – 23.08.

An event will change your perspective entirely; a change for the better caused by a friend, lover, or associate who enters your personal life or business world. Keep an open mind.

Virgo 24.08. – 23.09.

Your success will be the result of patient, diligent, and thorough research and through your ability to apply yourself to a goal until it’s completed to your satisfaction.

Libra 24.09. – 23.10.

Scorpio 24.10. – 22.11.

You’re going to hear something from a friend, loved one, or business associate that will surprise you -- a happy surprise.

Sagittarius 23.11. – 21.12.

Your greatest success will come through your ability to make a favourable impression on others, thus attracting gifts, favours, special consideration, or advantage.

Carpicorn 22.12. – 20.01.

You’re going to have a romantic change of heart and are going to find a solution to a problem through a different source, another person or in a different way than you expected.

Aquarius 21.01. – 20.02.

Your best success will come through the discovery of a new way of relating that will allow you to see things through the eyes of others and to embrace a new dimension of experience.

Pisces 21.02. – 20.03.

You are following your own star or listening to your own drummer, and you have a unique or special wish you want fulfilled, such as phasing one thing out in favour of another.

LOOKING FOR LOVE

Médano, unfortunately a small incident occurred, though noone was injured, but they were denounced and the dogs taken to Acción del Sol until the court hearing. The owners of the dogs are devastated and visit the refuge daily to walk them. The staff at the refuge says the dogs are very friendly and not at all aggressive. This is just a very unfortunate incident so let’s hope for all involved that the dog’s can be reunited with their very distressed owners. If you do have a dog classed as a dangerous breed please do follow all the legal legislation as the authorities are starting to be more diligent over these matters. If you would like to visit or assist Acción del Sol please call 922 778630 or call in to the refuge, Monday to Friday 3-6pm, next to the ITER wind turbines.

Live Arico/ PAWS

For instance, Golfo is a fouryear-old spaniel mix male. He is a cuddly bear and craves attention, but needs to be with people who have time and patience. Currently being fostered by Alice and Mark at Poochies Pet Hotel, Alice says “He has so much love to give but seems a little confused. He growls when he wants loving, and doesn’t like being told what to do, but I believe he could be trained. He doesn’t play with other dogs much, but is ok in their company”.

Exotic trouble

La Laguna The influx of exotic species to the islands is producing an ever increasing danger to agriculture, endemic populations and, in some cases, to human inhabitants. As numbers increase, the various organisations dedicated to their rescue and control are becoming progressively more united in the fight to ensure everyone, and every being’s, safety. In one of the most recent moves La Laguna council has made an official agreement with the Neotropical Foundation for the collection, veterinary treatment and rehousing of exotic species. The Neotropical Foundation is the only organisation in the Canary Islands which is recognised by the Species Survival Network (SSN) as an official rescue centre for animals protected under the CITES Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna agreement.

Based near the Los Rodeos north airport, it was first formed in 1991 under the name of GIEB and was dedicated to the study of animal behaviour, the breeding of endangered species in captivity, public education, and homing species rescued by SEPRONA, the Guardia Civil’s animal protection unit. In the year 2000, having steadily grown, it became the Neotropico Foundation in recognition of its international activities. See www.neotropico.org for more information, and if you find, or know of, any exotic species which are being kept illegally or are in danger you can call the organisation directly on: 629 123 745.

Popov is an eight year old Labrador. He barks loudly to say hello, which could be off putting to some children, but is otherwise a lovely dog that really deserves some love for the rest of his years. If you can help call Sue on 629 388102

Live jewellery One of the latest finds by the Guardia Civil is bound to have people wondering about the sanity of others. A new fashion fad, which began in South America, has spread to Europe and now seemingly to the Canary Islands. Simply take one cockroach, stick semi-precious stones onto it and place it on your clothes for instant live jewellery. Around 50 suitably decorated Giant Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches being sold on the streets in north Tenerife were recently confiscated.

Gran Canaria canines Dog owners in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria need to take extra care when walking their dogs after the recent introduction of heavy fines for fouling of pavements. Penalties of between €150 and €1,500 will be handed out to those who leave behind any excrement. The fines have been introduced after a long period of education campaigns so hopefully there will be much cleaner pavements and fewer people falling foul of the law.

Reigning World Champion Rob Huff driving a SEAT Leon WTCC

Hyundai

Absolutely oval Some whacky vehicle designs come out of Hyundai’s IDEA festival.

F

SEAT

or the last three years, the company has organised an internal contest to enhance creativity in the Research and Development department.

Leon WTCC

The corporation’s engineers are right this minute submitting their ideas, hoping to make it into this year’s final and thus have the opportunity to show a prototype of their design at the September festival, held in Korea. Winning ideas in 2012 included a spare tyre that folds out into an electric bike and a five-jointed car; purported to give greater flexibility for manoeuvring in tight spaces and even enabling it to climb up steps! Yet, the E4U egg car (Egg, Evolution, Electricity and Eco-friendliness) stands out amongst the rest. Designed to be driven slowly on narrow roads in urban areas, its speed and steering are controlled with one electric motor in the hemisphere structure, which simplifies the system and makes it light. Thus, it weighs only 80kg including the battery: it has 24V, 500W power and a maximum speed of 24 km/h . Its speed and steering controls depend on which direction the driver turns and how much he/she tilts the hemisphere. The egg’s rear legs can be folded, and the side parts are also detachable, minimising required parking space. The question is: will it catch on?

S

EAT Sport will support four teams in the 2013 World Touring Car Championship. Running the SEAT Leon WTCC this year are: the Campos and Tuenti teams from Spain, the UK based Special Tuning Racing, and Münnich Motorsport from Germany. Top names are also involved: Fernando Monje, current European Touring Car champ, will drive for the Campos, and the formidable German side will be made up of reigning WTCC champion Robert Huff with Marc Basseng, FIA GT1 world champion. The challenge consists of 24 races on twelve tracks around the world. SEAT has already brought the title home to Spain twice: in 2008 and 2009, so fingers crossed.

Between June 22 and 25 riders will embark from the UK on a route through four countries to reach the second highest pass in the Alps: the Stelvio Pass in Italy. Voted the “Best driving road in the world” by Top Gear, the Stelvio Pass has no fewer than 48 hairpin bends, reaches an ear-popping 2,757 metres and provides breath-taking Alpine views all the way. Renowned to the point that Moto Guzzi even sells a Stelvio model, this road really is unrivalled. The entry fee for this exciting event is around €550 per bike and covers accommodation for two people (sharing), ferry crossings, breakfast and evening meals. No minimum sponsorship is required but BEN anticipates entrants will want to raise as

High bids Hybrid models are becoming more popular, as Toyota Canarias were recently proud to point out. The sale of Toyota hybrids in Europe has risen an incredible 82 per cent in the first trimester of this year. That makes a lot of cars, taking into account the fact that 1.22 million Toyota hybrids, including the luxury Lexus models, were sold last year. The company now has 20 hybrid model available, in 80 different countries, with another 18 models planned by the end of 2015.

otorcyclists fitting new tyres to their bikes should ride with extra care for the first 100 miles says TyreSafe, the non-profit tyre safety education organisation. During a tyre’s manufacturing process, its surface is coated with an agent to prevent it sticking to the tyre mould. In some cases, this non-stick property can make the tyre slippery on the road when it is first fitted to a bike. To overcome this safety risk, riders are advised to avoid maximum power and hard acceleration, braking and cornering for the first 100 miles or so. This period of gentle riding allows time for the tyre to ‘scrub-in’ while any traces of the release agent are removed. After 100 miles, the

By George Reed

A real champion Continued from back page Sick of the racial attitudes of Beaufort County, Ray moved to New York to stay with one of his brothers who had moved there a few years earlier. It was 1959 and he was 15 years old. He worked at odd jobs for a couple of years and from 1961 to 1964 he found regular work in a slaughterhouse where he practised his combination punches on the sides of beef which were hung up. Sylvester Stallone used the same method in his film Rocky, as well as running up the steps of the art museum as Joe often did in training. Still yearning to be a fighter, Joe went along to a police athletic gym and was immediately hooked. Every morning he would get up at 4am and do a few miles of roadwork, then off to the slaughterhouse for a long day at work then head for the gym for a two-hour workout. Yank Durham, a former amateur fighter whose hopes of turning professional had ended after a vehicle accident during the Second World War, took an interest in Joe and started coaching him. Joe’s only loss as an amateur was to Buster Mathis, who he knocked out in a professional bout six years later. Mathis was chosen to represent the USA in the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1964, but damaged a hand in training. Joe Frazier took his place and went on to win a gold medal, beating the German representative in the final. Turning professional in 1965, his career went on to include 37 fights, 27 of those he won by knockouts and four were defeats, but those losses were against two great heavyweights, Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. He fought Ali on three occasions, beating him on points in the first fight – remember this was when Ali was in his prime – then losing the following one on points and the third encounter ended in a 14th round stoppage. Smokin’ Joe Frazier was around during the period of some great heavyweights, and it is to his credit that he was a respected and revered world heavyweight champion. What most people remember are the three fights with Ali, as they were all about what is good in boxing: the passion and skill of both fighters, with both of them tapping deep into themselves for that extra effort, bringing out the best in each other.

Tenerife fan

Oviedo trouble

Canarias aim for play-offs T

he surprise package of the year in the ACB basketball league, CB Canarias are not happy just to ensure survival in their first year back in the top flight after 20 years but are making a late push for a place in the play-offs for the championship. The prospect would have been greeted with laughter back in November when the La Laguna side lost the first six games of the season and were widely tipped to make a swift return to the LEB division. However, a stunning streak since Christmas has seen Canarias take many notable scalps, includ-

ing Real Madrid, Bilbao and Unicaja, and they are now within touching distance of eighth place. Club officials say the play-offs are not a priority because the aim of this first year back has alAlejandro Martínez ways been to stay up and consolidate the team for future seasons. However, coach Alejandro Martínez now agrees that the possibility is far from ruled out and a play-off place would be a massive boost to the players and loyal fans at the ‘fortress’ Santiago Martín stadium, where Canarias have won 10 out their last 11 home games, losing out only to the mighty Barcelona.

A Tenerife fan’s joy at the crucial away win at Oviedo was marred by an unsavoury incident outside the ground. The man, part of a group of around 50 fans who made the trip to Asturias for the potentially title-deciding fixture, was attacked by hard-core Oviedo supporters and suffered cuts and bruising to his face. He was saved by the timely intervention of other Tenerife fans who ran to his aid. The supporters said afterwards that policing outside the stadium was non-existent and incidents should have been anticipated given the reputation of some sectors of the home crowd and their reaction to the defeat.

Gran Canaria tribute

Moran returns B

asketball star Jim Moran returned to the island he calls his second home for a deserved tribute from local fans, several months after he was released by Las Palmas club, CB Gran Canaria.

Palmas have put together a good run since February, including several consecutive away wins, although unexpected slip-ups at home have meant that they have been unable to close the gap on runaway leaders Elche. Players and fans are convinced that this is the club’s best opportunity for a long time to make it back into the 1st Division after an absence of 12 years.

New Yorker Moran spent a decade Jim Moran at the premiership outfit and was a crowd favourite throughout, which is why the club decided to give him a belated formal send-off during the recent home game against Real Madrid, which was attended by 5,000 fans. Moran’s No. 20 team shirt has been withdrawn as a mark of respect for the former captain, who is the fourth top scorer in Gran Canaria’s long history. The 34-year-old Irish-American joined the club straight from university and made his debut against TAU Vitoria back in September 2001. He went on to play 358 games, a club record, and scored 336 three-point shots during his 10 seasons, also a record. The club sold special Moran Tribute t-shirts at €6 euros for the farewell and the homage was followed by a meal with friends and family of the ex-player and various current members of CB Gran Canaria at the Hotel Santa Catalina.

Experienced ‘vertical runner’ Agustí Roc made good his promise to run from sealevel to the summit of Teide in under four hours, although he could have been forgiven for not completing the feat in view of the scorching weather conditions. Despite it being the hottest day of the year so far, with temperatures in the high 30s, the Catalan endurance athlete, and holder of various records for gruelling climbs in Spain and Europe, took just three hrs 33 mins to complete the trail route from the El Socorro beach in Los Realejos to the top of Teide, Spain’s highest peak at 3718 m. Roc slashed an extraordinary 37 minutes off the previous best time and was so fast that his pace-setting guides, who were supposed to show him the way up the unfamiliar trails, were left behind early on. He was given a hero’s welcome by Los Realejos officials on arrival at the top of Teide.

Pep Guardiola: Why he needs to prove himself, or does he?

I

n April 2012 Pep Guardiola announced his decision to step down from the hot seat at Barcelona Football Club bringing to an end a four year reign that had seen the Catalan giants scale unprecedented heights. It had been a season tougher than most and the Catalans had just surrendered the league title to Real Madrid. But it wasn’t this loss that worried Guardiola (the titles could be won back) it was the feeling that he was losing his players and they weren’t as attentive to his words and practices as they had been. He consulted Sir Alex Ferguson: When the players stop listening to you, is it time for them or you to be replaced? Ferguson, having mastered the art of keeping his team fresh, answered that the players were the ones that needed recycling, but Guardiola was different and he left the club anyway. One year on Guardiola is ready to return to management and in July will be heading

World Cup winner Vicente del Bosque, who is Spain’s most successful manager ever, agreed to fly to the Canaries to lead the Olympic-style Torch Relay for schoolchildren to heighten awareness of the positive values of sport. He lit the torch using a flame produced by inserting flammable material just beneath the surface of the earth in the national park, a favourite display for visitors and one which never fails to impress. Del Bosque, accompanied by two senior members of his backroom team, gave a press conference at which he hinted that a new Canarian face (Rubén Castro of Betis) might make the Spain squad for the Confederations Cup in Brazil in the summer.

The opening stages were tense and it appeared that the first half would finish goalless. But that all changed when Oviedo attacked: Casares’ low cross was parried by the normally reliable Tenerife keeper Aragoneses into the path of Cervero who scored with ease, 1-0 to Oviedo. In the second half Oviedo attempted to hold onto their slim lead but at 74 minutes the match was turned on its head when Tenerife scored two tremendous goals in a crazy three minute spell.

Although the game was obviously taken very seriously by the southern Tenerife side it was obvious that a little enthusiasm had been rightly lost, nevertheless they managed to demonstrate that they deserved the respect garnered during the last couple of months, both teams trying hard, but to no avail on either side.

Luismi Loro hit a rocket from outside the penalty area straight into the corner of the goal, then minutes later Oviedo keeper Orlando Quintana came rushing off his line to clear a loose ball but his clearance fell directly to Alberto.

Down they go CD Marino 0 Leganés 2 Unfortunately, despite their valiant effort, CD Marino will now be relegated. The intense heat during the home match didn’t help either team, however, though Marino really gave the visitors the run around, allowing the Madrid team only three opportunities at goal, Leganés truly deserved their victory as they made the most of two of those chances, scoring admirably.

over to Bayern – a team which may be coming off a treble winning season. Some say that Guardiola only achieved success with Barcelona as it was blessed with incredible talent, and that to prove himself he now needs a true challenge. Chelsea could have provided that, but Guardiola rejected their advances. Yet Bayern are a European football superpower with a squad of superstars at their disposal. So where’s the

challenge? Well, at end of the 07-08 season Barcelona were actually ailing. Guardiola introduced a new system and changed the way things were done. So he didn’t really inherit a great squad as has been made out: he completely changed the team left behind by Rijkard. And he got the job with the first team on the merits of taking the B team from the 4th to the 2nd division. It was Guardiola who put the vital components together so Barcelona could marvel the world with their free-flowing game. He has nothing to prove.

The Canarian youngster unleashed a shot from inside his own half and everyone watching in the stadium and TV waited with baited breath as they followed the flight of the ball into the net.

first serious effort on goal. Cervera played his trump card and brought on creative Cristo Martin to replace defender Bruno and minutes later Cristo played a cutting ball through to Loro who found Aridane, and the 20 goal man rounded the keeper to score yet again, 1-0! Soon after, Suso tried to emulate Alberto’s goal from the week before but his effort was just a metre wide. The pressure was relentless and a corner led to the second blanquiazul goal on 73 minutes by Rigo. With only three games remaining Tenerife are odds on to become champions. The blanquiazules enjoy a six point lead (which is actually seven with the goal difference superiority) with only nine points in play. Of course winning the league is not enough to gain promotion and a play-off final awaits. It is getting interesting now, bring it on!

Joe Frazier must be rated high on anyone’s list as one of the great fighters of the past century. Born in 1944 in Beaufort County, South Carolina, USA, he was the youngest of 12 children born to Rubin and Dolly Frazier who owned ten acres of farmland on which they made bootleg corn liquor to help buy the necessities that the family needed. Although they had the ten acres and two mules to work the land, it was worth very little, it wouldn’t even grow peas on it, or corn which would normally grow anywhere. All that would grow was cotton and watermelon. The family just about survived on the corn liquor they sold for $7 a gallon. Joe took an interest in boxing when his father got a black and white television in the early 50s and he started watching the nightly boxing bouts which included some of the great fighters of the day, the likes of the great Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Marciano. They made a big impression on eight year old Joe, who was very stocky for his age. His classmates would give him a treat to protect them from bullies at school as young Joe could kick anyone’s backside. He got so interested in the fight game that he filled a sack with anything he could find to make a punchbag and hung it from an oak tree. He punched the bag for an hour at a time nearly every day for the next seven years. Ignoring everyone’s laughter, he would say, “I’m going to be the next Rocky Marciano – I’m going to be champion of the world!” All he had was his punchbag as there were no boxing gyms in his hometown, but he had his dream.

Tenerife has its very own cheerleaders. Amongst other achievements, the Tenerife Tigers have cheered for Spain in the Volley España and for Soccer Experience for the past three years. They have competed in the U.K, and performed at numerous sporting events around the island, as well as taking part in various competitions. Sport and fun all rolled into one: cheerleading is a great opportunity for young people to get fit, learn about music and dance, acquire skills such as co-ordination, self discipline and team work, and to meet new friends, of course.

The team was formed in 2008, when they were previously named the Tenerife Dolphins. Nowadays the squad, which has been coached by the BCA and World Future Cheer, consists of four different sections: minis, youths, seniors and elites. Both girls and boys are welcome to join, and each member is encouraged to work to the best of their ability and potential. The squad trains on Tuesdays and Fridays at the Las Torres Sports Pavillion in Adeje and is part of the Callao Salvaje Let’s dance academy, run by Amanda Lambert with professional teachers Zoe and Katie and which is currently in the process of becoming affiliated with

the Sport’s Association. The school provides professional training in a relaxed and friendly environment whilst developing strong physical skills amongst the academy’s students, whose ages range from 2 to 80 years old! The squad is currently offering cheerleading services free of charge to functions, in exchange for being able to pass the hat around to raise money for future competitions. There is also a summer school in the pipeline for July. For more information see www.letsdancetenerife.com, call: 922 743 639 or follow them on facebook: Tenerife Tigers.
