Callous crime Tierra Blanca animal shelter in Fasnia has put out an emergency call for donations after thieves stole around 1,000 kilos of dog food. Los Gigantes so, the dogs need your help more than ever. The centre can buy sacks of 20kg at a special price of €11.50, so if you’d prefer to make a cash donation their bank account is at La Caixa: 2100 9169 07 2200022538. If you see or hear of anybody trying to sell sacks of dog food, particularly the brand ‘Canter’, inform the police and don’t buy any from them please. That these heartless thieves should benefit from such a callous act is unthinkable. As the news of the theft broke, further bad tidings for Tenerife’s animal shelters came with the bulletin that the Icod de Los Vinos facility faces closure after being hit by a massive fine for breaching planning regulations. Amazing isn’t it? All those allegedly illegal homes and hotels all over the Canaries and what gets hammered with a huge fine – a charity-run animal shelter!

Tierra Blanca opened in December 2012 and took most of the animals which were previously housed by Live Arico, as well as a steady weekly input ever since. It receives some funding from the authorities but the majority of its income is from donations, some of them corporate such as from the Loro Parque Foundation, but most come from charity events run by tireless volunteers. That all their work should be wasted thanks to pitiless thieves is heartbreaking. The missing provisions represent a week and a half’s food for 500 dogs, and the centre is having to redirect funds from medicines etc to replace it, as well as installing a security system to avoid it happening again. They are currently having to evaluate the animals to see which have to be fed to avoid aggressive behaviour and which can survive on reduced rations. If you can donate a bag of food, please do

Callous crime

The non-profit APANOT shelter, which houses around 160 dogs and cats, and plays a crucial role in the north of the island, says it will fight to the end to avoid being closed down, even though it’s in deep financial trouble after being fined €30,000 for failing to obtain official permission to build the premises.

The debt has spiralled to €45,000 due to interest arrears and the shelter is urging people to sign a petition asking

the authorities to suspend the enforcement of an order to recover the money. Thankfully, more positive news has come in from Adeje, where the council-run refuge has signed an agreement with two animal protection agencies to manage their adoption procedures. For the next 12 months, they will be working in conjunction with MADAT (Friends of animals in Tenerife), the Dogs Welfare Trust Tenerife and the veterinarian Nahum García del Río. After the statutary waiting period for

required such as vaccinations and microchipping. Adeje has been running a responsible pet-owner campaign since last October and encouraging people who want an animal to visit the refuge first.

Walk for Life wins Adeje award  The founder of the Walk for Life solidarity event, Brigitte Gypen, has been honoured with the coveted Adeje council prize, the Abinque award. Created in 2004, the annual prize is designated for individuals and groups for their support of sexual equality and enhancing the life and image of the borough. Past winners have included outstanding paediatricians, nurses, agricultural packers and crèche workers etc. Brigitte received the news during a Walk for Life planning meeting. “The meeting was partly a set up,” she told Island Connections. “When I got to the mayor’s office, he was there with various councillors and officially announced that the Abinque award would be given to Walk for Life!” Adeje mayor José Miguel Company Details:

The money raised from the event each year is divided equally between Ámate, a Tenerife breast cancer charity, and the national cancer association’s Tenerife branch. The award will be presented during a formal dinner in the Costa Adeje Tourism Development Centre (CDTCA) on March 8. Tickets can be bought via the Adeje Department of Equality in the town’s Cultural Centre. As this is the tenth year of Walk for Life, both Brigitte and the local council are determined to make the event bigger and better than ever. Watch this space . . .

Temperatures plummeted below zero in many upland parts, where heavy snowfall forced authorities to bring out the snow ploughs. All access roads to Mt Teide had to be closed, and the picture was similar in Gran Canaria where several mountainous areas experienced their heaviest snow for many years. In La Gomera, all main roads were closed for a time due to black ice. Gale force winds and heavy rain once again brought major problems in North Tenerife (where wind speeds exceeded 95 km/h at times) as well as on La Palma and El Hierro, including the cancellation of ferry crossings and flights to and from the islands. Fortunately, no serious incidents were reported on any of the islands, although a group of hikers had to be rescued in the Teide area after being caught out by the sudden change in weather. A snow plough was deployed to clear a path for an ambulance to reach the stranded party and collect two people who were suffering from exposure.

The 4-year-old boy was playing outside his grandparents’ house in the resort late when, according to witnesses, the Briton approached him and, after talking to him briefly, picked him up and walked away with him. According to local media, the child’s mother, alerted to the situation by another child, ran out of the house, caught up with the man and fought with him to free her son. Another person arrived on the scene within seconds and between them they managed to wrestle the terrified youngster from his grip.

Arona

Beach security resumed Lifeguards are operating again on beaches in Arona although their deployment has not resolved the longrunning saga affecting other guards who have been on strike over non-payment of wages. Arona council has hired a small team to cover beaches such as Las Vistas and Los Cristianos while the acrimonious dispute affecting the others is resolved. As reported here, the guards first began their ongoing strike in September 2012, after several months without pay, in a contractual dispute between them and their former employer, a private firm that held the tender for lifeguard cover on local beaches. Various attempts to resolve the dilemma by issuing a new tender have failed, and Arona has decided to plug the gap by recruiting a new team of lifeguards while other solutions are explored. Environment councillor Antonio Sosa said that the lack of cover was a problem of great concern and the town hall had no choice but to take emergency action.

Travel certificate  The need to purchase a certificate to be eligible for resident travel discounts will soon be a thing of the past. Residents of the Canary Islands and other peripheral areas of Spain receive a 50 per cent reduction on flights and boat journeys within the region. However, due to alleged abuse of the system, a measure was introduced to ensure that passengers were actually living in the area at the time of travel. This meant that all nationalities had to visit their town halls and pay a nominal sum for a certificate to verify their residence. The move proved highly unpopular due to the incon-

request into a trial. The Spanish Government has given travel industry entities until November of this year to be fully integrated into the system,

meaning that many companies will still be able to demand it until that time. To be eligible for the discount you will still need to be registered on the census, known as the Padrón, with your local town hall, but these details are currently being processed into a single database, called SARA, which travel companies will have access to. Some, such as Fred Olsen, can already offer the discount without the need to produce the certificate. However others, including Naviera Armas, still require verification to be presented at the time of collecting your tickets so it’s important to ask before making final bookings.

Official statement

Oil referendum Bank card scam A serious rock fall has brought down an area of the Buenavista to Punta de Teno road on the northwest point of Tenerife. When the road was first closed for safety reasons, at the end of September 2013, there were many complaints. However the authorities’ decision was vindicated when the very next day a local agricultural worker (one of several who had been granted continued access) was injured by a falling rock that smashed through the windscreen of his car causing him facial injuries. Now, only one week after work began on shoring up the mountain side in preparation for opening the road to the public once more, a larger rock fall brought down one side of a section of a curve known as los Positos, sweeping it down the mountainside towards the sea. Thankfully none of the engineers were in the area at the time. This winter’s inclement weather has caused the construction work to be delayed by six weeks, though three of the planned 22 huge metal nets, aimed at containing any future rock falls, have already been put in place.

over which it has jurisdiction and this is not one of them. Madrid has acted within the law at all times in issuing the licenses, as several court rulings in cases brought by the regional authorities have proven” said the deputy PM yesterday.

Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saez de Santamaría attacked the announcement by Canarian president Paulino Rivero that the people of the Islands would be consulted over whether oil giant Repsol should be allowed to carry out exploratory drilling off Lanzarote and Fuerteventura later this year. “The Constitution clearly states that the Canarian government can call a referendum only on matters

Here in the Canaries, opponents of Rivero say he is, “misleading the population” into believing they have a say in the drilling. However, the government says it fully intends to proceed with the referendum and has followed the correct process to seek leave to hold it.

 Police in the Canaries have issued a warning over the latest phishing attempt to con Internet users into providing their bank card details to scammers. A flood of e-mails was sent around the Canaries, allegedly from a top bank, informing customers that due to changes in authorisation procedures their credit and debit cards need to be re-activated in order to be able to use them on-line. The e-

mail asks recipients to download and fill in a new form, giving their account details and PIN. According to police, though most people are by now aware of such phishing practices, some customers may be duped into disclosing their details and their account could be emptied of funds. Anyone who has filled in the form is asked to contact the bank and police as soon as possible.

Local public safety councillor Manuel Reverón confirmed media reports that the accident had been caused by a hand-brake failure in the van, which was parked outside a shop whilst its owner was inside. The van rolled down a slope and mounted the kerb, pinning the woman against the wall causing fatal head injuries. Although the ambulance arrived within minutes from the Cabo Blanco Health Centre, nothing the medics did could save her.

Adeje

British businessman attacked A British man in his 50s was taken to a Tenerife hospital after being badly beaten by a gang of raiders who broke into his home in Adeje. Police say five men, reportedly wearing balaclavas, tied the well-known Los Cristianos estate agent up and savagely beat him in his house. The victim said he realised the attack was taking place and tried to lock his doors and windows but the raiders smashed a plate glass terrace door with a big flower pot to gain entry. He suffered facial injuries and was knocked unconscious by the blows received. The

raiders made off with a Rolex watch with an estimated value of several thousand euros. Police arrived on the scene within minutes after being alerted by the estate agent’s neighbours but despite locking down the immediate area failed to catch the attackers.

Economy

Tourists spend more money Overall spending by tourists in the Canaries rose sharply in the final quarter of last year, the latest figures show. Details published in the new Business Survey of the Tenerife Chamber of Commerce show that total expenditure was up 21 per cent compared to the last three months of 2012, with visitor numbers up by 13 per cent. Interestingly, despite the increase in the overall numbers of visitors, those choosing all inclusive were slightly fewer, but still made up 28.8 per cent of the tourists last year according to the Canarian Statistics Institute. The option was most popular with the British tourists, 1,064,362 chose to come all inclusive, followed by 941,797 Germans and Tenerife was the favourite choice followed by Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. Almost four million tourists to the Islands last year had already been here more than three times; the Britons heading the ‘loyalty’ list at over a million and a half multi-repeat visits.

Puerto de la Cruz

Quality tourism awards  A total of 41 companies and professionals from various different sectors in Puerto de la Cruz received awards for their Commitment to Quality Tourism. The certificate is given by the Spanish Tourism Institute in recognition, after an independent external evaluation, of the effort made to improve the value of service offered to the clients. Puerto de la Cruz, along with another 148 tourist destinations in Spain is signed up to the Integrated Quality Spanish Tourism Destination System (SICTED), a project for the ongoing improvement and management of the quality of tourism destinations. During the presentations, Tenerife Cabildo’s President Carlos Alonso congratulated those who have become the first ever winners of this award



in the tourism town and expressed his confidence that more companies would join in the programme, “to consolidate Puerto de la Cruz as a modern, quality and competitive destination”.

Úrsula Talg, of the Hotel Tigaiga and President of the Tenerife Tourism Excelence group, thanked all the winners for their support for the programme and underlined the advantages of the SICTED

project as, “a programme which has so far given awards to a total of 366 Canarian businesses and five destinations, including those which are about to be announced shortly in Fuerteventura”.

Those awarded were: Blanco Bar, Boutique Paddington, Joyería Rubí, La Casa de Los Balcones, Óptica Llanos I, Óptica Pirámides, Perfumería Eva, Perfumería Glamour, Perfumería La Rosa (C/ Quintana), Perfumería La Rosa (C/ San Telmo), Perfumería Miki, Perfumería Mikieva, Autos Mertens, Autos Plaza; tourist guides Francisca GilRoldán, Isabel Mora, María Belén Álvarez, María Dolores Albelo, María Jesús Martínez and Rolf L. Fuchs; Apartamentos Casablanca, Hotel Botánico, Hotel Puerto de la Cruz, Hotel Tigaiga, Parque Vacacional Eden, the Tourism Initiatives Centre (CIT) Information office, Blanco Bar Restaurant, La Tasquita de Min, San Telmo taxi cooperative and 12 professional taxi drivers.

 January saw 7,000 new contracts in the tourism sector in Tenerife, an increase of 23.85 per cent on the same month in 2013 according to Obecan (the Canarian employment observation agency). The island President underlined that with the exception of rentals, the sector had experienced increases in, “practically all” the main areas: hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, air and sea transport, sports, recreation and entertainment. Overall on the month the number of unemployed were reduced by 4.62 per cent, 5,565 less people registered as looking for work, however, that still leaves 114,931 on the job-seekers list. The good news would seem to be that since last June the tourism sector has been increasing the number of people under contract month by month, a trend that it is hoped will continue.

The first obstacle to overcome for this informant was the obvious one: City dwellers enjoy a level of anonymity that enables them to make such moves without immediately running the risk of local repercussions.

The second is that making the decision to whistleblow is only the beginning of the process. Scandals are only scandals when made known. If they are kept quiet, they are designated for the vast pool of local, inside, knowledge muttered and laughed about in bars. Everybody may know, but “what can we do?” is the stoical - or apathetic, depending on your point of view - local stance. A strong weave of collusion, silence and retaliation make up the Canarian blanket that, by tradition, smothers potentially embarrassing disclosures. All continues the same, no matter how lamentably. So what to do if you know something incriminating and are disgusted? You decide to keep quiet and see how the situation evolves. You don’t want trouble, but then you re-

In the case of the individual concerned, having made the difficult decision to speak up and suffer the consequences, the problem lay in where to go and who exactly to tell. It was obvious to him that going to San Sebastián’s town council, the man’s employers and therefore those who should be very concerned,

would be a waste of time, so he threw caution to the winds and contacted the island media and digital press with details and proof. A resounding nothing happened, see reasons previously mentioned, until the digital Gomera Actualidad had the temerity to publish. José Andrés Medina and team run this diginewspaper honestly. The rest, which shall remain nameless here, are suppressed by fear, political party bias, censorship and a desire to leave the island

apple cart of favour and allegiance teetering on. Medina may not receive favours, special tips or many official invitations, but his integrity and self respect are intact. The story he and Island Connections publish might not be a scandal by Brit tabloid standards, lacking as it does celebrities or details of anybody at all’s extra-marital affairs, but it is scandalous if we believe that the same laws apply to us all and that public employees have no right whatsoever to assume they are immune. Franco is long dead. This story, moreover, involves a local policeman whose behaviour suggests his own complete indifference to the laws and sanctions he imposes on members of his community daily. “As a member of the community of San Sebastián, I want to express the indignation I feel when I see certain persons taking advantage of their position and completely ignoring the constraints of the law”, starts

the bold statement from the whistleblower, referred to by initials SRAC throughout. “This member of the Policía Local (local police force), whose responsibility it is to safeguard... and implement the laws that govern our behaviour, is Number One in breaking them and has been doing so for some years now”, he continues.

As there was no comment from either the policeman in question, or his employers, in response to the news, Island Connections contacted the town hall. “We are unable to comment as this man is a private individual”, said the press officer of the town council. When it was pointed out that he is in fact a ‘funcionario’ or public administration employee, and therefore in theory represents the state and is fully accountable - especially given that he is a policeman - for his actions, the reply was, “We have no facts about this case”.

EU legislation

Cruel to cruets As from the end of February the sight of the oil and vinegar cruets being delivered up with your salad will vanish from European restaurants. Following, it is said, discovery of sub standard olive oil being offered in some restaurants across the EU, our Brussels masters have decided to ban the use of this condiment as it is currently served and imposed as from January 1st only single servings of olive oil in plastic bottles and sachets. Restaurants have until the end of February to use up existing stocks. As a blanket measure it seems like a vast over-reaction. Wouldn’t it have been simpler and more eco-friendly (more plastic in the world) to have placed huge fines on those establishments caught serving sub-standard oil?

best surfing beaches in protest at the decision to ban vehicles from parking near the shore. The rule, introduced by the Department of the Environment, affects other beaches such as Famara and follows the recent camping ban.

It effectively means that surfers have to carry boards and sails on foot a considerable

distance to be able to practise their favourite sport. Miguel Quintana, head of the Los Charcos Windsurfing Club, said he fully supported the attempts to protect nature but “the rules should take into account the needs of Lanzarote’s big surfing population and the contribution made by surfing to the island’s economy”.

Las Palmas

‘Man of war’ on beach  Las Palmas council has been under fire for apparently not warning fully of an unexpected visit by the potentially lethal Portuguese Man of War to the city’s popular Las Canteras beach. A section of the beach was invaded by the nasty floating creatures and several subsequently washed up on the sand, where they were photographed by a number of people who posted the pictures on Internet. Although commonly mistaken for a jellyfish, the Man of War is, in fact, a siphonophore and is characterised by its very long

tentacles. Its stings usually cause severe pain to humans, leaving whip-like, red welts on the skin that normally last two or three days after the initial sting, though the pain should subside after about an hour. However, the venom can travel to the lymph nodes and may cause, depending on the amount of venom, a more intense pain. In rare cases, stings may also cause death.

A new army commander has been appointed for the Canaries . General Pedro Galán, 58, was promoted by the Ministry of Defence and transferred from his headquarters role as personnel director to the most senior army post in the Canaries, replacing General Martín Villalón, who reached retirement age recently. His appointment comes at a time when there is speculation that the Canaries might be used as a base for joint intervention by France, Spain and other European countries in the African state of Mali, where insurgent groups threaten to destabilise the government in the north of the country.

Las Palmas mayor

Embarrassing pay rise U-turn  The mayor of Las Palmas has issued a formal apology after he and 20 full-time councillor colleagues received a pay rise in January while the rest of the corporation employees did not. Juan José Cardona said the 6.7 per cent rise was an “administrative error” and the extra money would be recovered in the coming months from pay packets. News of the rise triggered fury both among council workers and in the media, which accused the mayor of betraying his own staff.

Within days of the revelations of the inflation-busting hike in early February, Cardona went public to explain that an unfortunate mistake had seen the 21 pay packets increased by the figure which was deducted last year for all staff as part of the city’s belt-tightening exercise. “Someone forgot to push the right button to automatically extend the agreed pay cut to 2014 in our case but I have intervened to rectify it immediately” said Cardona. Some media critics have accused him of reacting only when the papers published details of the alleged error.

University studies

Fewer student doctors call Universities in the Canaries are being urged to cap the number of medical students to ensure better career prospects for fledgling doctors. Under Spain’s strict system, graduates must immediately apply for a tough resident programme called M.I.R. to train in a specialism before being allowed to practise in the Health Service. The number of places available on the programme has been cut gradually in recent years and is now considerably less than the number of graduates, making competition for a place extremely tough. The College of Physicians here is calling for a review of the current intake levels in medicine degree courses offered in La Laguna and Las Palmas to ensure the system can absorb newly-qualified doctors rather than condemn a large proportion to the dole queues or force them to move abroad to seek work. However, both universities might oppose the move as it would see fee revenue fall.

Tax and social security fraud

Security giant faces prosecution

One of the biggest private security firms in the Canaries look set for a date in court after the decision to prosecute it for allegedly fiddling pay slips to avoid paying over €2 million in tax and social security contributions. Seguridad Integral Canaria, which is owned by the chairman of Las Palmas football club, Miguel Angel Ramírez, is said to have doctored its paperwork in 2008 and 2009 to pay overtime to its hundreds of staff under the table and to have disguised working time as other, non-taxable activities. The firm provides not just alarm systems but security at dozens of government buildings across the Canaries and at several airports. The prosecution service has decided to act after receiving the findings of a Tax Office investigation which points to systematic fraud by the firm.

Weed killer row Adeje council has hit back at opponents for stirring up “needless alarm” over the use of weed killer in local parks and verges. Mayor José Miguel Rodríguez and senior colleagues held a press conference to allay fears that the products used were dangerous and insisted that the criticism voiced by members of the opposition was groundless. “The rains of recent weeks have led to a big increase in weeds

and we are using a standard product to deal with them. The glyphosate is being used as and when needed and by qualified persons. Contrary to the reports circulating, it is not being used indiscriminately and with risks to human health,” said the mayor, who slammed the critics for damaging the reputation of the area among tourists with what he described as “politically-motivated scaremongering”.

Protest turn-out

Drink drive mayor

The headline-making mayor of tiny San Juan de la Rambla in north Tenerife says the poor turn-out at a protest rally to force him out of office has given him “strength to carry on”. As reported here, Tomás Mesa was convicted of causing an accident while driving six times over the legal limit but he has refused to resign, even though his party (PP) has virtually disowned him. Due to the system of political alliances in the picturesque town, Mesa was elected mayor despite gaining a mere 217 of 3,430 votes cast. He is adamant the conviction and disqualification from driving do not prevent him from remaining in office and insists he has “the support of the people” to see out his term. A demonstration staged outside the town hall to step up the pressure on him to step down attracted just 25 people and the dismal attendance proved a great embarrassment to the organisers.

Italian arrested

Viewing spot theft The Civil Guard’s Press Office revealed recently that a 56-year-old Italian living in Santa Cruz had been arrested in connection with a car break-in at a popular viewing spot in Santiago del Teide. The haul from the theft was a massive €5,000 euros and $7,000 dollars in cash, which the tourists had left in a bag inside their parked car while they took in the sights!

Tunnel tragedy anniversary  The anniversary of one of the worst tragedies to hit in Tenerife in recent years passed this month without any formal commemoration, unlike previous years. On February 10, 2007 a group of nearly 30 young scientists and nature lovers lost their way in a maze of narrow underground tunnels in Los Silos in the north of the island. Despite a massive rescue effort launched when a few of the excursionists managed to make their way back to the surface to call for help, six of

Guanche comic book triggers copyright feud  What was supposed to be an innovative way of helping young people learn about native life in Tenerife in bygone days has turned into a bitter feud which will end up in court. An initiative by Candelaria council to publish stories about the island’s ‘Guanche’ traditions has seen the artist who created the drawings launch a battle to prevent the mayor from using his work. Luis Fierro is trying to stop his pictures from appearing in any publications after he was excluded from the final project and, he says, was not paid in full for his work at the time. The €6,000 debt,

The illustrator says he was contracted directly by Candelaria’s mayor to produce hundreds of drawings of Guanche characters for the comics and



Los Silos the group - all in their 20s and early 30s - died after suffocating due to seeping underground gases. The tragedy shocked the scientific community and put Tenerife in the world headlines, with coverage of the deaths in papers such as the New York Times. During the early anniversaries, commemorative events were held to recall the fateful day and highlight the dangers posed by the countless disused and unsealed tunnels, many of which are privately owned. Los Silos mayor Santiago Martín said that even though neither the council nor the families organised anything in the town, the tragedy was still very much in mind at this time of year as always.

candelaria pressured into completing the work before the last local elections, so the mayor could unveil the project as a vote-catching strategy. However, he was then dropped and the comics – which narrate the story of Antón Guanche and his efforts to mediate between the natives and the Spanish conquistadors in the late 15th century – were finished by other artists. Fierro is seeking damages for plagiarism but Candelaria says he ceded the intellectual rights to the drawings when he signed his contract with the council. The saga took a further turn earlier in the month when Fierro staged an exhibition of the illustrations and invited the council to sue him for unauthorised use of the drawings if they were certain they belonged to the corporation.

Tenerife v Scotland Pool Challenge

On the ball!  The annual Tenerife versus Scotland Challenge, one of the highlights of the Tenerife Pool Super League’s season was once again a complete success. A party of 32 Scottish visitors travelled over for the week’s matches, which, surreally, started with a friendly Karaoke competition at the Brewers Droop in Las Américas, during which Tenerife, captained by Pauline Aglington, scored 17 to Scotland’s 13. Next day was a Golf championship at Adeje Golf Course with once again Tenerife, this time led by John Wilmott, taking the lead at 6:0. Everyone was wonderfully looked after by Señor Paul and employees at the course. Later, the pool began in earnest with the first leg of the men’s competition

The Scottish team has taken part in the challenge for the last seven years

at the Chipeque Pool Bar, Los Cristianos. Tenerife’s three captains were Chris Collins, Graeme Bollesty and Chris Harrison, and the final score was 24 all. Next day the first ever Ladies’ Pool Challenge took place at the

same venue. Scottish Captain was Karen McAleer, but her Tenerife counterpart Clair Ling took her team to victory with a 7:3 win, and the Tenerife league began to have high hopes for beating the Scots who had won

each of the previous six year’s challenges. However, the next leg of the Men´s Pool at The Waterfall Bar, Golf Del Sur, left Tenerife behind at 23:25. The final challenge event was held at Camping Nauta, with George Fagan, Scottish captain for all events except the Ladies’ challenge, blissfully leading his team to a 17:31 end, giving the Scottish team an overall win at 64:80 George Fagan and his team were delighted to be once again invited to the island, with all thoroughly enjoying the sunshine, camaraderie, and of course, the Challenge. Mike Portway, one of the founder members of the Tenerife Pool League said the atmosphere throughout was, “Excellent with plenty of friendly banter”, whilst father and son Marcus and Jamie Rees from Scotland, praised the organisation of the event, which was sponsored by Express Bar Deliveries.

Los Gigantes

Eyesore to go? One Tenerife local council will hopefully set a trend with its latest announcement. In a long-awaited move, Santiago del Teide council has finally threatened action over a derelict building which has blighted its popular tourist destination, Los Gigantes, for over 20 years. Situated right at the entrance to the pretty village, the apartment blocks are one of the very first sights that greet visitors. Somewhat belatedly perhaps, but no less encouraging, councillors have apparently declared the work’s building permission, issued to developers Canary Sol y Mar SA in 1988, to have expired. The company has two weeks to respond, but the council seems determined to act.

The square which is on the Avenida Rafael Puig next to the Hotel La Siesta in Arona is undergoing renovation and remodelling as part of ongoing plans throughout the island, underwritten by the Canarian Government and the island and local councils to upgrade open spaces in tourism areas in the hopes of improving their draw as commercial areas. The total budget for the scheme is €652,882 and it is hoped that the new attractiveness of the area will make it a good base for cultural and leisure activities too.

Triumphant return  On the 13th week of the national First Division Wheelchair Basketball competitions, Club Ademi Tenerife BSR returned to Adeje two years to the day that saw them go up a league in the same borough at the Los Olivos facilities. This successful wheelchair basketball team has, since then, regarded the Adeje games as somewhat of talisman games and more so on the anniversary of their successful promotion. This time playing in the pavilion of the Costa Adeje school, their talisman didn’t let them down as they swept to a 52:35 win against BSR Cocemfe Puertollano in front of 200 spectators. This was their fifth win out of nine games and put them in third place in the top Spanish league for their class.

 Almost a hundred tourists of varying nationalities gathered together in Puerto de la Cruz’s town hall to receive thanks for their many visits and loyalty to the town. The local mayor Marcos Brito presided over the event which was organised by the tourism initiatives centre (CIT). Tourism councillor Carmen Dolores Padilla Rios was

invited and the CIT team were led by their President Hortensia Hernández. All the honoured tourist guests were accompanied by the managers of their respective hotels. Those who have been visiting the quaint tourist town on the northern coast for 15 years received a bronze diploma and those who have been back for 25 and 35 years, silver and gold respectively.

Carnaval

It’s party time! Carnaval is the festival just before Lent, and not to be missed in the Canary Islands, whether you visit one of the more famous ones, or a smaller affair in your local town. Pictures by Gerard Zenou The most extravagant and best known internationally are in Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, and Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, but Carnaval actually goes on in most towns across the Canaries. Many people time their holiday visits to coincide with the dates, so we can expect the Islands to be fairly busy. Main events for both adults and children include competitions such as fancy dress, murgas, comparsas and rondallas. There are also processions, and of course galas for the election of the adult, senior and infant Carnaval queens. Some towns such as Las Palmas,

Playa del Inglés and Puerto de la Cruz stage a series of events aimed at the gay community including a drag queen contest. Carnaval is the time for the ridiculous – you will feel completely out of place if you don’t dress up, and this can be done on a budget so do give it a try! The Carnaval theme in Santa Cruz this year is Comics, in Puerto de la Cruz, Let’s Go West, and in Las Palmas it is the World of Fantasy. We can look forward to absolute fun from now until March 9 in Santa Cruz, and until March 8 in Las Palmas and Puerto de la Cruz, with dancing in the streets continuing long into the early hours. Smaller towns around the islands either celebrate their Carnavals at the same time, or in mid March this year, so if you don’t want to travel too far, look out for information locally. The most significant dates are listed in our What’s On section. Other islands have their own specialities within the fiestas, Los

Indianos in La Palma, Los Diabletes de Teguise in Lanzarote and the Carneros in El Hierro. The ritual of the Burial of the Sardine marks the end of the Carnaval. Much work goes into the creation of the huge papier-mache fish which is towed around the town followed by an entourage of weeping widows who are not always all they seem. At the end of the procession there is a fireworks display, during which the sardine is set alight, and this is followed by the widows’ ball. There are usually special bus services to help you get to and from the Carnaval on the main procession day, so that you can leave your car at home. One word of warning: be careful to guard your purses or wallets and keep jewellery to a minimum and strictly of the cheaper variety. It is sometimes better not to take anything valuable with you at all if you are partying, just enough cash for food and drinks. Sew a pocket into the inside of your costume, or wear a small bag somewhere underneath,

out of sight and temptation. Comfy shoes and clothes are a must. If you go with others, it is a good idea to set up a well known meeting point before the evening begins, in case you get separated, and pace yourself: you don’t want to miss half the fun because you’ve overdone it too early, or spend most of the evening looking for a toilet. What are you waiting for? Get those glitzy glad rags on, put on your make-up, leave your problems at home and enjoy!

Multi-million loan sought The Canarian government has confirmed that it has applied for a €670 million bailout loan but denies that the region is bankrupt. Official spokesman Martín Marrero said the money had been requested from the new Regional Loan Facility set up by the Spanish government because it offered a

much lower rate of interest than the major banks. Marrero added that the request should not be interpreted as a sign of insolvency and recalled that the Bank of Spain had confirmed that, at just over €2,300 per head of the population, the Canaries’ debt is considerably lower than the average of the rest of Spain (€4,120). A similar loan applied for last year saved the government €72 million in interest, insisted the spokesman.

Marketing

Does your business have any online presence?

Is this ‘little’ thing a sign that you are not taking your business seriously? Having a website tells potential customers that you mean business. If you have a website and are willing to tell the world what you are doing, and how you do it. You are probably confident in the fact that you can deliver every time. If you are confident enough to look for more clients online and even advertise, then it means that you have a well thought out business process that works and probably heaps of satisfied clients. A potential client may then think, “You are serious and I want to buy from you”. This thought process takes only

a split second in the mind of leads who find your website, but it’s the one that makes them call you and ask for a quote. If you’re not going to advertise your services, who do you expect to do it for you? Everyone else is busy

with their own lives. Even if you offer the perfect thing they won’t have the time to tell other people about it, at least, not as much as you would like. In this digital world everything happens on the

Internet. Customers have this weird small, but very common, habit of checking the credibility of a company by searching for its website, its Facebook or Twitter page, and seeing if there are any references on Google: If they can’t find anything that’s a big red flag. If there’s nothing about the business on the Internet they think, it might be a scam, or just some random guy trying to make some money or the business might have problems with the law, be part of the underground economy... It’s incredible how having a good website online and appearing on the first pages of Google can give you a huge boost of credibility.

Suddenly people feel that they can trust you, that in case something goes wrong they can at least find you somewhere, show other people where to find you. And, when they do have a great experience with your product or service, it’s that much easier to share your website on a short recommendation e-mail or in a tweet or Facebook post. It happens all the time, and without a website you are missing out on this. You have costs to worry about in order to keep your business floating, but not having more clients will hurt your business much more than investing in an online presence. Without a website you are just one other guy

trying to make a living, but not a trustworthy provider, worth recommending. It sounds harsh, but that’s how it goes in the mind of the consumer and you’ve probably found yourself thinking in the same way at times. People want to buy from service providers who take their business seriously and are passionate about it. A website shows them that you mean business. A good website that shows up high in the Google results tells them even more, that you are passionate about offering the best service out there. So how serious are you, really?

Price freefall slowdown  Whilst prices in the housing market in the main continue to fall, there are clear indications of a slowing down of the reductions. According to the valuations company Tinsa, prices overall in Spain fell 7.2 per cent in January this year, two per cent less than the December figure. Reductions since the high point in 2007 are now around 40 per cent and rumbles in the sector are starting to talk about reaching the bottom, although a further reduction of between five and 13 per cent is still expected by various experts, who differ on the

time limit between 12 and 24 months. January 2013 saw a reduction of 13.8 per cent, so the slowdown of reduction is quite marked on the year on year figure. The most significant drops were in the metropolitan areas at 8.5 per cent, followed by capitals and large cities at 8.4 per cent. Once again the Balearics and the Canaries, at minus 6.9 per cent, bucked the trend and registered lower price reductions than the national average. Accumulated reductions since 2007 are up to 45.8 per cent along the Mediterranean coast, 43.3 per cent in capitals and large cities, 43 per cent in

of 3.99 per cent.

Comparing

rates metropolitan areas, 34.6 per cent in the rest of the boroughs and just 33.8 per cent in the Balearics and Canaries. Pisos.com list average prices here as of January 2014 at €1,381 per square metre, which places them at the third lowest in the country below only Castilla la Mancha at €1,122 and Extremadura at €1,262. This online site also registers an increase in prices for the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife last month of 0.35 per cent, although our Eastern neighbours in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria still saw a fall.

 For anyone used to UK rates, the local IBI is but a flea bite, however as in everything it is all relative as local wages are a heck of a lot lower too. In a recent listing of the rating charges for 52 of the largest cities in Spain, the two capital cities of the Canarian provinces come at 31 and 41 respectively for Las Palmas and Santa Cruz. Lleida, Taragona and Melilla are at the top of the list, whilst San Sebastían, Pamplona and Victoria pay least. Madrid came in 17th position and Barcelona at 12th. Interestingly given the position of other Basque Country cities, Bilbao was in 44th place.

There is no need to suffer dripping taps

:: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

knowhow

Home Plumbing

Much like a car, the plumbing system in your home requires regular servicing to ensure it stays in good working order. Once you have removed the cap you will need to undo the screw The round piece on the top of taps can generally be removed for making repairs.

Keeping up with plumbing maintenance will certainly save you time in the long run and can also save you money by preventing the need for large repairs, as well as improving efficiency and thus a decrease of consumption and lower bills. All of the following simple jobs can be performed by anyone and will only take a few minutes.

On and Off Make sure you turn your main water supply and fixture valves on and off periodically, every month for example, to ensure they don’t get stuck in position. This is especially important for the main water tap: ideally you want to avoid being in the position of not being able to turn your water supply off during an emergency when water is gushing all over your house!

Repair Leaking taps Leaking taps are not only

a nuisance; they are also the cause of many litres of wasted water over time (and thus higher water bills). Conventional taps with washer fittings can often be fixed by simply replacing the washer. First turn the water off at the mains then put the plug into the sink you are working on – this will ensure that components don’t go sailing off down the drain. As you dissemble your tap, it’s a good idea to lay the parts out in the order in which they came off so it is easier to put them back together again. Take photos as you go along if you are unsure. Take the lid of the tap off, which is usually the bit that is marked ‘H’ and ‘C’ for hot and cold. Inside you will see a screw which you will need to unscrew (a reminder for which way to screw and unscrew is this: righty tighty, lefty loosey) Now you need to take the metal cap off (if there is one, sometimes the tap head is

the cover) to expose what is known as the cartridge - often made of brass, it will have a hexagonal area near the top and a spindle sticking upwards. Removing this can be quite difficult at times, especially if you live in a hard-water area, as there will probably be limescale build up. Use an adjustable spanner to turn it, and a little brute force if necessary. Once it is loose enough, pull the cartridge out completely and take it to a plumbers’ merchant or ironmongers, complete with washer so they can see exactly which one you need - there are many different types and sizes of washer so it’s important to get the right one. Now all you need to do is unscrew or pop off the old washer, replace it with the new one and reassemble the tap, tightening it as much as you can by hand, plus a quarter

turn. Cartridges can also be changed in this way.

Inspect Pipes Annually At least once a year you should examine your distribution and drainage pipes for signs of leaks. Check along the whole length of visible pipe and around all fittings and fixtures: clues include rust, corrosion and mineral deposits. Also inspect ceilings and walls for damp patches which may indicate water loss. It’s always better to have them fixed as soon as possible before structural damage to your home appears.

Air your aerator Low water pressure, water leaks from a tap handle and irregular spraying patterns are often caused by sediment and limescale buildup block-

ing the small openings inside the aerator – the small screen the water passes through as it leaves the spout. First of all, place the plug in the drain so you don’t lose any parts, then dry both the spout and your hands before gently unscrewing the aerator. If it won’t come undone, wrap the jaws of your pliers with masking tape (to reduce the risk of marring the tap’s finish) and carefully loosen the aerator with the pliers before finishing by hand. As you dismantle the aerator note the order and orientation of any parts as you remove them. Rinse each of them off with water and brush off any debris. Use a small brush (an old toothbrush works well) dipped in vinegar to remove sediment. For difficult to remove deposits, soak the components in white vinegar for a few minutes before scrubbing them.

Then reassemble the aerator and screw it back on to the tap - hand tightening should be adequate, but if water leaks from around the threads, very, very carefully give it a fraction of a turn with the pliers. Showerheads can also be cleaned with vinegar. To remove unsightly mineral deposits, put about one cup of vinegar in a plastic bag, secure it over the shower head and leave in place overnight. Once you have removed the bag simply wipe off the mineral deposits with a damp cloth.

Free flowing To help keep your pipes free from debris you should run very hot water down the drain once a week. It is also advisable to empty all strainers on baths, showers and sinks regularly and never pour any kind of grease, cooking oil or fat down the drain: always wipe it off pots and pans with kitchen roll or similar and dispose of it in the bin before washing items as usual.

T

here are five key aspects you need to address to ensure you obtain the optimum investment portfolio to suit you and your particular situation.

Business NEWS

EDITION 715 :: 21/02/2014 - 06/03/2014

Five key principles for investing portfolio that is too risky or cautious for you.

(4) Diversification

(1) The right ‘wrapper’ A ‘wrapper’ can keep most of your investments in one place and help you legitimately avoid paying too much tax. You want to ensure that as much of your hard-earned wealth as possible is placed in the most suitable ‘wrapper’ to limit your tax liabilities. It is crucial to take advice from someone who is wellversed in the nuances of Spanish taxation and how it can impact your wealth. Otherwise, you could see your investment returns slashed by Spanish tax - levies that could have been avoided or constrained.

(2) Your appetite for risk

Most of us recognise that for some of our assets, exposure to market movements gives us a better

chance of outperforming inflation and producing real returns over the medium to long term. However, the starting point has to be to obtain a clear and objective assessment of your appetite for risk, or your investment portfolio will not be suitable for you. These days there are some very sophisticated ways of evaluating your risk appetite, involving a

combination of psychometric assessments (easily carried out in a face to face meeting), and consideration of your other assets and aims.

(3) Matching your risk profile to the optimum portfolio Every set of investments can be

forecast to display a given amplitude of risk. Low amplitude, less risk but also lower likely returns. A higher amplitude of risk brings greater potential returns. The key is ensuring your investment portfolio matches your attitude to risk. Without such a sound assessment being then matched to the optimum blend of investments, you could find yourself with a

It is critical to ensure your investments are suitably diversified, so you are not over-exposed to any given asset type, country, sector or stock. By spreading across different assets and markets, you give your portfolio the chance to produce positive returns over time without being vulnerable to any single area or stock under-performing. This sound investment approach should be extended by utilising a ‘multi-manager’ approach. Several different fund managers are blended together to reduce reliance on any one manager making the right decisions in all market conditions.

(5) Review Finally, review your portfolio around once a year to re-balance it. As asset values rise and fall, your

19

portfolio can shift away from the one designed to match your risk profile and objectives. You may need to re-establish your original weightings, and consider if your circumstances have changed. Five key principles which applied well can help you have the peace of mind to sleep at night, while your investments and investment managers work to your requirements.

Most people nowadays know how important play is to the healthy development of children.

Play up! Time spent playing with your children can be very therapeutic

Children know how to play; it is only as we get older that we forget

Turn every activity into a game

Play holds the almost unique position of simultaneously being both relaxing and stimulating. Playing games helps children develop their imagination, problem-solving abilities, creativity and social skills. It is as important to children’s mental and physical health as eating correctly, getting enough sleep, and exercising. All of these benefits are as vital for adults as they are for youngsters, yet somewhere between childhood and adulthood many people simply stop playing. Work and life responsibilities take over and a very serious attitude to life is developed. This not only contributes to people living their lives in a very rigid manner, but also denies adults the opportunities for learning and development that are intrinsic to play.

Why play?

We are never too old to have fun

From board games to sports to word games there are plenty of ways to make life fun again

Playing organised or spontaneous games of any sort teaches or reinforces various skills that are useful, or even crucial, to us as adults. Play helps relieve stress, and fosters the creativity and flexibility necessary to be able to deal with life’s situations in an appropriate manner. It can help us develop empathy, compassion and trust, as well as perseverance, give and take, and how to work together as a team. Games are good for our brains. Components of play,

such as curiosity, risk-taking, trial and error, social etiquette, verbal communication, body language, boundaries, and cooperation are all practiced repeatedly during childhood playtime. Mastering these skills is important for healthy relationships when we are older, but it is also essential to ensure we continue to improve all of them as adults or we are forever stuck with our childlike responses to adult situations. Play also helps us connect with others in a more productive manner. Many adult relationships are based around obligation – at work, within a couple, towards children or aging parents, or within the community. Yet if we can make the time to bring a little lightheartedness into our relationships, sharing laughter and fun, this can often make our situation feel less of a duty and more joyful. Energetic games also release endorphins – our bodies’ ‘feel good’ chemicals – and thus are a fabulous antidote to anxiety and depression.

Employment edge Many of us feel the weight of our responsibilities, as though we have no time at all in our lives for any fun, but often it is our own attitudes that make us feel this way. Take a good look at how you spend your time during a typical week. If you have children you will hopefully spend a large amount of time

playing with them – but do you see it as play, or as just another chore? If it is the second, you are missing a fabulous opportunity for your own improvement. There are also probably various occasions during your working week when there are moments of fun and laughter, but you will probably still classify those under the heading of ‘work’. Recognising when we are free to play, and having a realistic view of how much of your time you actually spend working and how much playing, can be an instant boost. In fact, bringing play into the work situation can be one of the most useful things anyone can do. After all, success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time spent working – it is the quality of the work that is ultimately important and that’s highly dependent on each individual’s well-being. Play can be the perfect way to encourage team building, innovation, cooperation and mutual support, as well as help iron out difficult relationships, lower stress levels, and increase productivity.

What’s in a game? But what should you play? Many games can be carried out in a lunch hour or incorporated into short breaks during our daily routine. Organised activities such as board and card games are always popular and can be played in most situations. Then you have sports such as rounders, basketball

or simply ‘catch’ that have all the aforementioned benefits as well as added physical advantages such as improving hand-eye coordination. There are also many spontaneous activities such as word-play, ‘tag’, I-spy and guessing games that don’t need any props, and can be played at any moment and by any number of players. Many activities we already undertake could also be considered play. Walking the dog, having a picnic, swimming, and even sunbathing can all feel so much more fun if you just acknowledge that it is your ‘playtime’. Try and incorporate as many different types of play into your life, as often as possible – start small and work your way up: hopefully you will soon be feeling much younger again!

Fair’s square However, there is one thing to bear in mind: if you introduce too much competition into play it can actually have a detrimental effect on participants. Yes, the need to win can be a positive one, but for everyone to benefit from an activity you need to make sure that everybody, regardless of age or ability, feels challenged but not overwhelmed – if the game is beyond their present skills, or one or more players are dominating everything, it will eventually ruin someone else’s confidence. Play competitive games by all means, but remember that the main aim should always be for everyone to have fun.

Restaurante La Granja

A quayside delight Small boats bob about and move aside respectfully as the huge Fred Olsen ferry comes in to dock. By John This is our first view of Gran Canaria. And we like it. The white pueblo blanco of Agaete nestles at the head of the valley, and the harbour at Puerto de Las Nieves is chock-a-block with nautical life. On one side is a row of brightly coloured fishing boats, their superstructure cluttered with whip aerials, sonar and radio. On the other are the pleasure boats, shuffling about on their moorings after the passage of the ferry. Behind it all lies the first line of buildings overlooking the port. A good half of them appear to be restaurants, mostly traditional white and blue. Fishing boats and restaurants in close proximity? Foodie heaven! We trundle off the boat cloaked in the smog of interisland delivery lorries. Soon our car is twisting this way and that, as we try to find the nearest harbour parking, ready to take advantage of one of those restaurants. So many

one way streets and dead ends! Finally, we end up in what appears to be a small car park area that has been monopolised by the Restaurante La Granja. It styles itself ‘La Casa del Mar’ and it looks the business. Blue canopies and blinds, blue and white

tablecloths, waiters in smart attire, it looks as though it will look after us well. A bonus is having the car, full of cases and other paraphernalia, well within sight. Thunderous waves crash against the rocks only a few metres away, as though orchestrated to provide us with a welcome. A bottle of cold white local wine and a dish of olives are the first requirement after the ferry journey. Later, we look hungrily over the menu. A fried whole octopus passes

by to an adjacent table. I must have one, I think. In the other hand the waiter bears a gargantuan plate of fresh mussels, steaming hot and looking plump. We start with a mixed salad of prawn, cucumber and tomato in a coriander dressing. One portion is quite enough for two. By the time that it has been demolished, the octopus is ready for me, and a plate of puntillas de calmar for my wife. The puntillas, smaller than chipirones, have been so lightly deep fried that they retain all of their juices whilst having a crispy coating. Taste buds burst in the mouth. How do they fry an octopus whole and yet leave the legs still so moist and tender? Both dishes are exceptionally good, and both are accompanied by proper new potatoes, garnished with coriander. They are the best since I last had Jersey Royals. Not often do I wax this lyrical, but this place provides serious fresh fish, with a chef who is seriously skilled at its delivery. We idly watch as two men push trolleys laden with fish direct from one of the boats to the restaurant just over the way. Just over €33 is little enough to pay for such bounty of the seas, so competently prepared and presented. It was a pure fluke (no pun intended) that we ended up there, but even the position could not be bettered, and we were only prevented from going there again by Fred Olsen, who quite arbitrarily changed their departure time three days later, ensuring that we left too soon to take advantage of a looked-forward-to repeat visit. We loved this place. Can I sue?

Hi everyone,

hope you’re all fit and well, and enjoying the springlike weather.

It’s still a bit nippy during the evening, but lovely during the day. We must spare a minute or two for the many people in the UK who are suffering during the terrible floods. Thankfully, all of my family are safe so far, and more than that you cannot ask This week, I thought I might touch on talent versus training. I avidly watched the Olympics and with great pleasure, but also with awe at the achievements of the athletes. I wondered just how much depended on natural talent, genetics, training, and parental nurturing. I began to look into the science of it all.

EDITION 715 :: 21/02/2014 - 06/03/2014

Undoubtedly parental nurturing plays a great part in the encouragement and early training of a child in a sport either one or both of the parents engaged in successfully in the past. This can be very encouraging in the early years of the child, but the scientific studies at universities and colleges in both Europe and America show natural talent takes precedence over parental nurturing. Without the addition of this natural talent, the child can only progress so far, reaching a pleasurable level of competence, but not getting to the very top.

At some point in the genetic make up of an individual, a natural talent begins for the first time in a child. An example is Richard (Dick) Fosbury,

who perfected the ‘flop’. He was born in 1947 and loved sports at school, particularly the high jump, but found his body could not coordinate all the motions involved in the straddle method. At first, he tried to use an outdated technique known as the upright scissors method. In

this method, a jumper runs upright towards the bar, facing forward, and during his jump lifts his straight legs one at a time over the bar. He gained a little height using this method, but was extremely ungainly when using it and one historian has referred to Fosbury’s early attempts as an “airborne

seizure”. He began to experiment with other ways of doing the high jump. However, during his junior years, the landing pit for the high jump was universally filled with wood chips. But by his senior year, across America, the pits were mostly filled with pieces of foam rubber, enabling a much safer and less painful landing for the children. In the late fifties, he began experimenting with the backward type of jump, and in his junior year he took second place in the state with a jump of 6ft 5.5inches. One newspaper printed that he looked like a “fish flopping in a boat”. And his style was thereafter described as “the flop method”. The rest is history. So in this case it was talent combined with physical training that got him to the very top. It seems that a combination of two of the four important points at the top of this article needs to be used.

:: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

In the Olympic year of 1968 there was only one ‘flopper’ as the rest of the competitors were ‘straddlers’. By the Olympic year 1972, the ratio was 28:12 in favour of ‘Floppers’. By 1984, all finalists were ‘floppers’ as there were no ‘straddlers’ left in the competition. But it’s not just in sports that this applies to. Most singers find a genetic link, but this alone will not take them to the top. They need training by professionals to achieve greatness. High IQs are usually genetically the gift of one or both of the parents. It seems that the lesson we are learning from all of this research is to try our hardest, and once we’ve reached the top of our potential, to enjoy the fruits of our labour, because no one can do better than one’s best.

Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially of each other.

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

write knowing I will fall on my words, but no one will say it was for very long. I write because I want to paint the world the way I see love should be. I write to provide a legacy. I write to make sense out of senselessness. I write knowing I will be killed by my own words, stabbed by critics, crucified by both misunderstanding and understanding. I write for the haters, the lovers, the lonely, the brokenhearted and the dreamers. I write because one day someone will tell me that my emotions were not a waste of time. I write because God loves stories. I write because one day I will be gone, but what I believed and felt will live on.” Shannon Alder.

I would like to know your opinion on FODMAPs for Irritable Bowels. Do you recommend it to your patients? Thanks, Kevin

Dear Kevin, FODMAPs is an acronym referring to Fermentable Oligosaccharides (eg. fructans and galactans), Disaccharides (eg. lactose), Monosaccharides and Polyols (eg. sorbitol, mannitol, maltitol, xylitol and isomalt). Limiting dietary FODMAPs is an effective treatment for people with symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Trying to eliminate them all or trying to follow a diet in a Taliban way is like trying to reach your elbow with your tongue – it’s simply impossible. Hey, please, don’t keep trying, you’re not going to reach your elbow! These are a collection of molecules found in food that can be poorly absorbed by some individuals. Some are related with the amount we ingest, therefore you should be able to have them in moderation. Poor digestion causes the bacteria to digest/ferment these FODMAPs and can cause symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome - bloating, excess wind, abdominal pain, nausea, changes in bowel habits and other gastro-intestinal symptoms. Obsessive nutritional label-reading can be counterproductive, time-consuming and eventually crueler than the disease itself. Sit down with your GP and draw a road map. Each person, gastro-intestinally speaking is different therefore flexibility is highly advisable. A few examples of food sources for each of the FODMAPs are the following: Excess fructose: honey, mango and high fructose corn syrup.

ReSOLUTION

Fructans: artichokes, garlic, onion, wheat, rye and barley. Lactose: milk, ice-cream, custard, yoghurt and unripened cheeses. Galacto-Oligosaccharides: legume beans. Polyols: apricots, avocado, nectarines and mushrooms.

Dr. De La Flor Thumbs Up FACTS:  Hialuronic acid (HA)

Intra-articular injections of HA to treat Osteoarthritis have similar efficacy to treatment with an oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (e.g. Ibuprofen, Diclofenac). Conclusion: Oral medication has preference.

 Prostate cancer (PC)

New research confirms prostate cancer (PC) prevention litany of failure: Vitamin E supplementation is now linked to an increased risk of PC, no effect with selenium, soy or green tea polyphenols. Save your money by not buying expensive, ineffective supplements!

 Major depression (MD)

MD doesn’t get worse in the winter but Seasonal Affective

Disorder (SAD) occurs almost exclusively in winter. Light therapy is helpful in treating SAD but not necessarily for MD. Conclusion: If you have SAD, spend your winter in Tenerife!

Coaching Corner By Dr. De La Flor

“I write to find strength. I write to become the person that hides inside me. I write to light the way through the darkness for others. I write to be seen and heard. I write to be near those I love. I write by accident, promptings, purposefully and anywhere there is paper. I write because my heart speaks a different language that someone needs to hear. “I write past the embarrassment of exposure I write because I am nostalgic, romantic and demand happy endings. I write to remember. I write knowing conversations don’t always take place. I write because speaking can’t be reread. I write to soothe a mind that races. I write because you can play on the page like a child left alone in the sand. I write because my emotions belong to the moon; high tide, low tide. I

For the next two weeks, let’s try to go back in time, and instead of talking, let’s try to do a bit of writing. Nothing long, nothing sophisticated, nothing obscure. Simply let your heart ‘write’ your inner talk and share it with a loved one. Do you remember the excitement you experienced last time you saw your name written on the back of an envelope? “Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.” Graham Greene My prayers for all those enduring any type of illness, pain or tragedy. Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. (6089) holds certificates in coaching, nutrition and medical exercise from U.C. Berkeley and the American Council on Exercise (ACE). His medical approach is highly influenced by Positive Psychology; an empowering, encompassing way of approaching patients through the study of their strengths and virtues to enable them to thrive and lead fulfilling lives, accept the past, find happiness in the present, and hope for the future.

As Jimmy Greaves would say, “It’s a funny old Game”. We know he was referring to football but the same saying can easily be said in darts. February 9 was one of those days, with teams playing the quarter finals of the league Team Handicap competitions. At least one team was left shocked and stunned: throughout the season Chipeque Nomads have consistently failed to beat Target A, but that day was the day the worm turned, with Chipeque Nomads starting each game on 661 and Target A starting on 721 it should still have been an easy day at the office for the Target Crew, but alas that was not the case. With the teams all square after the singles and the doubles mat-

ches it all came down to the trebles leg which after a close fought battle went the way of Chipeque Nomads sending them through to the semi finals. The other matches played were Café Rood (7) V Our Place (0), Target B (5) V Emerald Lounge (2). The match between Legends B and Amigo’s Warriors was postponed. Also in the plate competition Gaffers Bar and Naughty Nautas progress to the semi finals round. Well, back to the league for the second report which once again saw us at the Target Bar to watch Target A V Café Rood which is always a competitive match and that day was no different. At the end of the singles it was all square at 2 -2, onto the doubles! That also ended up being a draw,

so it was all down to the trebles to see who would take the glory. The glory in fact went to Café Rood for winning the match 7 – 4 overall. Anyway, life goes on, and talking of which this edition we have published the Super league tables because that competition has got down to the nitty gritty: i.e. who is going to win how much cash stage! The play off matches will be played at Camping Nauta, from 7pm onwards on February 22, to determine who is going to be on stage at presentation night on May 10, 2014, at our favourite campsite. There are some really juicy matches scheduled for serious darts fans!

comes Driving in wet weather AtoMonster town Stay safe

Ducati in Tenerife

The rainy season isn’t quite over yet and, as every year, there is still the potential for many a bump, scrape, stall or much worse.

Prolonged rain makes the roads slippy, especially here where the tarmac is designed for extreme hot weather, not for winter conditions. The best advice is, of course, to always to postpone your journey rather than put yourself and others at risk by driving in dangerous conditions, however, if that isn’t possible then

extreme care should always be taken. One of the greatest challenges is driving through floods. Luckily, breakdown cover specialist, GEM Motoring Assist, has produced a short video with simple advice for drivers on staying safe. So what is the best way of driving through high water? The first question you should ask yourself is, ‘How deep is

the water?’ Ultimately, driving through any water can be dangerous, but even a depth of just 15cm will reach the bottom of most cars. Above this depth you can lose control or stall the engine as water can be sucked into the exhaust or washed into the air intake. Ideally, you should check depth of water before continuing: halfway up your wheels should be the absolute maximum. However, if you do have to go through there are certain things to take into account. It is advisable to go through the water one car at a time and, most importantly, always drive slowly and carefully. To reduce the risk of stalling in a manual car: stay in the same gear throughout the flood and press the clutch down slightly

at the same time as the accelerator as this will help keep the speed down and should keep water out of the exhaust pipe. In an automatic car keep your foot on the accelerator in the lowest gear, but keep controlling your speed with your foot brake If you do stall whilst in the water don’t attempt to restart the engine as you risk damaging it. The best thing you can do is get out of your vehicle and look for higher ground before calling a recovery service. If you do make it through to the other side, then dry your brakes by applying them gently several times and take it easy for a few kilometres after the flood. Watch the video at: www.motoringassist. com/driving-in-floods.

New Sport Venture range Sport Venture model is an addition to the range (based on the Tamura) and is equipped with 13 extra equipment items, adding external features such as 16-inch Bright alloy wheels, front fog lights, dusk-sensing lights, rain-sensing front wipers and rear parking sensors. Inside, there’s sporty black

cloth trim with contrasting grey stitching, a leather steering wheel with gloss dark grey inserts, gloss dark grey trim to the audio panel, door trims and outer air vents, electric rear windows and climate control air-conditioning. Mazda, but even more so.

Prestigious motorbike manufacturers Ducati recently chose Tenerife to present their latest model, the Ducati Monster 1200. Over a nine day period, four groups of 30 journalists from far and wide, including Japan, the US, India and Australia, as well as the UK and the rest of Europe, were invited to put the Monster through its paces. Their route covered around 200 Km, starting from Buenavista del Norte and visiting Puerto de la Cruz, La Orotava, El Teide, Vilaflor, Santiago del Teide, Icod de los Vinos, Los Silos and Garachico. The itinerary provided an unparalleled mix of scenery and topography, giving reviewers the chance for an “exhaustive” testing of the latest edition to the brand’s catalogue. The company’s Comunicación Director, Francesco Rapisarda, said, “The Island was chosen thanks to the excellent natural conditions which it offers; for its roads, impressive landscapes and climate and its welcoming and friendly people.” Ducati now joins an increasingly impressive list of top motoring brands, such as Mercedes, Lamborghini and Audi, that have chosen Tenerife to showcase their new arrivals.

Boxing >> By George Reed

I

Muhammad Ali fights on

t doesn’t seem that long ago yet it’s 50 years ago, on February 25, when the 22 years old cocky, baby faced boxer, then know as Cassius Clay, stepped between the ropes of the ring set in the stadium in Miami Beach, Florida, to challenge the awesome world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston for his crown. It was no surprise that Liston was the 7/1 on the favourite, for he was rated as the most monstrously devastating champion anyone had ever seen and it seemed to be like premeditated cruelty to put a boy like Clay in the same ring as a killer such as Liston. I remember so clearly after all these years that I was driving home from my job as P.T. Instructor at a mental hospital in Warrington, where I lived at the time, when a news flash came over the car radio that there was a doubt whether the Liston v Clay fight due to take place the following early morning, U.S. time, would happen, due to the fact that at the weigh-in for the fight Clay had ranted and raved, was wild eyed and staring, which prompted medical opinion to voice the view that he was emotionally unbalanced, to such a degree that many people thought he had gone insane. Then the medical officer in charge, Dr Harold Robins, officially stated that the young Clay was mentally unbalanced, that he was scared to death and liable to collapse before he entered the ring. I thought to myself, join the club Cassius, I’ve got a few like you in my classes at the hospital, and there’s plenty of room for another one. However, eventually Dr Robins, after examining Clay again, allowed him to go ahead with the fight. With Clay in the dressing room stripping for the weigh-in, Liston refused to come out again until Clay was on the platform. When he did, Clay attempted to attack his opponent and had to be forcibly restrained. Liston gave him a stony stare and then signalled silently that he would stop him in two rounds; Clay replied with the same words that he had previously told the world, “Sure as fate, you’ll fall in eight”. Clay had already been nicknamed the ‘Louisville lip’ because of his boasting and his ridiculous poetry, and for months whenever they met, Clay had bedevilled Liston calling him ‘the Great big ugly bear’, which took some nerve for there could never have been a man who looked as invincible as Sonny Liston before his first title fight with Clay. Not even the Great bare-fist champion John L. Sullivan, the Taunting Jack Johnson, the Hard as nails Jack Dempsey nor the Cool destroyer Joe Louis was more calculated to strike fear into opponent’s hearts. Liston had left home at 13 and drifted into delinquency and, after being sentenced for armed robbery, spent a long time in a state penitentiary, where a chaplain got him interested in boxing. Eventually he was released to pursue a professional boxing career and had soon beaten all the world heavyweight title contenders, most of them being stopped within three rounds. Henry Cooper was offered a title shot which brought forth Cooper’s manager’s famous remark that he and Cooper wouldn’t care to meet Liston on the street, never mind in a ring. Liston had won the title by knocking out the world champion in one round and repeated it in the return fight by kayoing Floyd Patterson once again in the first round. Everyone must know by now that the result of the fight that night in February 50 years ago: when the young Cassius Clay made a joke of the betting odds by beating Liston to the punch with his laser fists landing on Liston’s face with amazing precision, until finally Liston, humiliated and a beaten fighter, decided he had had enough and sat on his stool refusing to enter the fray in the 7th round. After the fight Clay announced that he had joined the Nation of Islam and had changed his name to Muhammad Ali, and would turn out to be arguably the greatest and certainly the most controversial champion who had ever graced the heavyweight throne, and with him boxing became once again a major sport. 50 years on from that globe stopping fight, Liston is no longer with us, Cooper has gone, Joe Frazer has gone, and Ali’s famous trainer Angelo Dundee has gone. Ali, stricken with Parkinson’s at 72, has outlived them all. Sport‘s greatest story still hasn’t finished yet. That magnificent man who provided a multitude of magic moments: no other boxer could give you the kind of adrenalin rush that Ali used to!

A hole in one! Liberty Seguros

Liberty Seguros has been elected by AEGG (the Association of Directors and Managers of Clubs and Golf Courses) as the Insurer of preference for golf insurances.

The agreement, which ensures that all of AEGG’s members are entitled to the best benefits when contracting a Liberty Seguros golf insurance, was signed by Manuel Lozano Pose, Manager of AEGG, and Francisco Javier Muñoz Postigo, Commercial Director for Liberty Seguros in Malaga. AEGG is a non profit organisation which looks to boost, develop and present the role of Golf Club director/management, making it the ideal organisation for Liberty Seguros to team up with in order to be able to grow in the field of specialist golf

insurance. As Manuel Lozano Pose mentioned, “this agreement is very beneficial to the organisation: to be able to count on a partner such as Liberty Seguros is a breakthrough as they will be able to offer us comprehensive

Iberostar Tenerife

cover, that can be adapted to our specific needs”. The policy covers breakage and/or damage to equipment and clubs during the course of play, as well as cover against fire and theft as a result of intimidation or violence whilst being transported by the in-

sured, whilst stored with the caddy-master or at the pro-shop. Perhaps even more importantly, it provides Personal Accident Cover for death, permanent disability and medical expenses resulting from accidental injury occurring at the Golf Course. Third Party Liability is included up to €100.000 which also covers accidents whilst playing abroad, provided that liability would have applied to the insured had the same accident occurred in Spain. Ask your Liberty Seguros broker about these competitively priced golf policies and ensure you tee off with absolute peace of mind, whilst at any officially recognised club anywhere in the world! Go to www.libertyexpatriates.es to find the nearest broker who speaks your language!

Star decision may backfire The unexpected decision by premiership basketball side Iberostar Tenerife to allow star player Blagota Sekulic to leave suddenly for a juicy contract in Turkey had serious immediate consequences and could have even bigger repercussions in a few months time. Sekulic, the MVP of the ACB league in the first half of the sea-

La Laguna

son, departed for Fenerbahce, who are in the Euroleague and needed reinforcement after losing two key players to injuries. The La Laguna club agreed to the late move and picked up an undisclosed fee from the Turks. However, his absence was noted painfully in the Spanish Cup thrashing by Barcelona a few days later, when Iberostar’s forwards were outjumped and outmuscled by the Catalans in the 102-60 drubbing.

Cancer fun run Increasingly common as they may be, Fun Runs to heighten awareness of breast cancer issues continue to attract massive support in Tenerife.

Coordinated by the local athletics club and the city’s Sports Department, the run saw nearly 2,000 people

though coach Alejandro Martínez moved quickly to plug the gap for the forthcoming league fixtures by signing Greek international Lazaros Papadopoulos, there are fears that Iberostar will struggle in the second half of the season and the slide that has seen them slip down the table in recent weeks may continue further. Martínez is banking on the wins secured already to be just enough to stave off relegation danger but with players such as Diego Fajardo and Levi

The event is now in its sixth year and has become a popular date on the La Laguna calendar, with many city shops opening on the day to cash in on the crowds of runners, families and spectators. It has however received criticism in certain quarters due to the percentage of the registration fee that actually reaches the charities.

By Chris Todd

Top Clubs target Ayoze The past couple of weeks have been overshadowed somewhat by the constant transfer speculation surrounding Tenerife’s young striker Ayoze Perez. The latest, according to reports, is that Portuguese giants FC Porto have tabled a bid at €1 million plus add-ons including 15 per cent of any future transfer. The press in the UK recently reported that Everton FC were willing to pay CD Tenerife the €2 million ‘get out clause’ for Ayoze. It does seem likely that he’ll leave the blanquiazules in the summer. It is a difficult decision for the club. Take the much needed money, which will provide the funds for a good solid team for next season, or base the team around Ayoze and perhaps cash in after another good season. These are great times for Canarian footballers with Pedro at Barcelona and David Silva at Manchester City being joined by Jesé Rodriguez, the new kid on the block at Real Madrid, with the potential of Tenerife’s Ayoze Perez.

Barcelona B 2 CD Tenerife 0 After back to back victories CD Tenerife travelled to Barcelona in confident mood. They knew that another win would put them ahead of their great rivals Las Palmas in the league for the first time in 1067 days but it wasn’t to be. The youngsters of Barcelona, led by Denis Suarez, outplayed the blanquiazules for large parts of the match. Great things are expected by 20 year old Denis Suarez, and his signing from Manchester City last summer was for more money than CD Tenerife’s whole budget for the season. We live in a different world. With Ricardo missing

for personal reasons and Aridane injured it was hoped that Borja would take his chance to stake his place in the team after his good performance a week earlier. But just hours before kickoff the ex-Kilmarnock man pulled up with a muscle strain and this meant that Ayoze had no natural strike partner on the day. With Tenerife playing deep, and conceding possession to the home side, they were hoping to score on the break using the speed of the front men. Edgar made his debut on the left wing, he was quick but struggled to make an impact. Barcelona B opened the scoring on 26 minutes through an excellent free-kick by Denis Suarez. In the second half Tenerife attacked with more purpose in front of their small band of 100 travelling fans. Ayoze could, and should have, scored twice: every striker has an off day, we suppose, but we’re praying that all the off field talk is not affecting his concentration. Barca B sealed the win as Suarez played a nice ball through to Nieto who finished in style to make it 2-0.

return to La Liga. For Tenerife Juanjo made his home debut with Ricardo returning in midfield. The blanquiazules started brightly, they were keen and biting into tackles. Suso was playing another blinder on the wing and it was his cross that found the waiting head of new boy Juanjo, who converted his first goal as a blanquiazul. It was all CD Tenerife deserved and as the heavens opened they wasted chances to score more goals. The visitors turned up the pressure in the second half and took control. Ayoze had a quiet game although he did produce flashes of skill and had a good effort saved by the Zaragoza keeper. With ten minutes remaining a moment of madness by young Tenerife goalkeeper Roberto let in Arzo who headed into an empty net. It was ‘game on’ as both teams went for the win. In an exciting closing finale Tenerife enjoyed a raft of corners with three good chances spurned. Frustrating perhaps, but most of the damp supporters left the stadium pleased with the commitment of the team. If we can play like this the objective of 50

History in photos

The Louvre and its visitors This captivating exhibition of photos by Alécio de Andrade is a testimony of almost 40 years of the life of the Louvre Museum. From the copyists that still attend to plant their easels before their coveted artwork, to exhausted families and the many religious visitors who stand rapt before their revered representations: visitors, works of art, and the interchange between them are captured with humour combined with the precision of an ethnological study.

Subtle talent

Swallows Art Exhibition Each year Tenerife’s talented foreign visitors exhibit a collection of their art. A mix of techniques is used to depict a variety of subjects, including floral designs, still life, portraits and dramatic landscapes. Using water colours, oils, acrylics and pastels, the artists’ work shows their dedication to, and enjoyment of, their creative pastimes. The Swallows Art Group meets once a week to practice their skills. Taking Tenerife’s beautiful scenery as a starting point, with its diversity of volcanic landscapes, forests, picturesque villages and interesting farms and vineyards, members have the opportunity to express their appreciation of the island they have made their second home. The exhibition can be seen at the Swedish Church, Los

Alécio de Andrade, photographer, poet and pianist, Brazilian but resident in Paris until his death in 2003, traversed the halls of

the Louvre from 1964. His visits have left us with 12,000 photographs: Intimate views of the visiting public, including their approbation of the museum and strange, and at times incredible, behaviour are there for all to see, as well as the variety of the passing generations with their individual attitudes, gestures and attire. As well as these fascinating insights, the exhibition’s selection of photos and the book that accompanies them depict the various phases of the museum’s development over the years, providing a mesmerizing insider’s look into one of the art world’s greatest institutions.

An exhibition of oil paintings by Tenerifian artist Ángel Yumar can be seen at the Adeje Cultural Centre until March 5. Yumar has been exhibiting for the last four decades: concentrating on the beauty of everyday life and the Canary Islands’ landscapes and marine environments, he transmits emotions in such an expressive manner that any viewer is touched. Though his techniques are inherited from impressionism, Yumar has a style of his own, describing it as Modernism based in reality. His paintings are characterized by the permanent evocation of the graciousness of nature, eliminating any sign of human intervention.

Scorpio 24.10. – 22.11.

Waiting for a knight in shining armour to rescue you? Don’t - you’re quite capable of rescuing yourself.

Sagittarius 23.11. – 21.12.

You’re feeling misunderstood, but is it that you aren’t expressing yourself properly?

Carpicorn 22.12. – 20.01.

You will soon be faced with what looks like an obvious choice - but don’t make snap decisions, it may not be as simple as it looks.

Pisces 21.02. – 20.03.

You should be feeling more confident than you have done for a while – keep it up as you have everything to look forward to.
