John still does a lot of exhibition playing, but he blocks out a month in January and September to come to Tenerife for a break. Professional darts has changed a lot since his heyday. He tells us it is now the second most watched sport on Sky Sport, after football: with eight million spectators and outranking cricket, rugby and golf. Players’ winnings have also increased a great deal and a top player can now expect to earn £1 million a year. This is the fourth year of the Tenerife Classic, although he has been involved with raising funds for Ámate previously. Surprising to some, who only know John’s facet as a three times world darts champion, he plays off a

has been with the same sponsors, Unicorn Darts, for 43 years and lives just five miles away from where he was born. Thankfully one of his loyalties is to Ámate and the Classic that bears his name. The event started as a small tournament between friends and has grown into a massively important annual event which fills the greens of the club and is the second biggest money earner for the charity every year. John thinks that part of the popularity of the Classic is that the partners of the mainly male players give them a push to go out and play to help to raise money for what is generally speaking, a women’s disease. He not only plays in the event, encouraging friends to join him, he also uses his contacts to obtain some spectacular and very different prizes.

n 85-year-old Catholic priest was detained in Tenerife and extradited to England to face child sex charges.

He is hoping that will bring big money in at the charity auction. Another friend, Micky More, has donated a gallon bottle of whisky and Taylor’s Lounge is donating €1,000 to the event for a hole in one competition in any of the holes on the course! €500 will go to the player and €500 to the charity. “The charity will get their share whatever happens,” John confides. His wife Karen is usually not far away, “she’s here somewhere with a pink hat on” he laughed. John himself is sporting one of his pink shirts which has been embroidered with a special logo which includes his signature and the name of the charity. Anybody can go

along to Stitches under the Golf Shop and have the logo done on their favourite pink garment. “You’ve got to wear pink on the day” he affirms. All the tees have been individually sponsored and the overall event is being sponsored by Blacktower Financial Management. Even if you are not a golfer, come along and bid in the auction or take part in the raffles for prizes including spectacular holidays at some of the Islands’ top hotels – it’s

all for an excellent cause. Spectators are more than welcome and you can always join us for the gourmet barbecue at just €10 per person. Reservations 922 729 833 With the crisis, all the NGOs have had their public funding slashed, any money that is around is being prioritised for food and clothing for those most in need, so this kind of fundraiser is more important than ever if the charity hopes to continue with the excellent work it does. We hope to see you on the 14th at Amarilla golf!

Dublin born Francis Paul Cullen was arrested in Arona on a European arrest warrant issued by Britain and flown to Madrid to be quizzed by high-profile Spanish judge, Eloy Velasco. A police statement said the abuses on altar boys occurred in religious centres and churches in Britain between 1956 and 1991. He has now been formerly charged with 27 sexual offences on children between eight and14 years of age. Mr Cullen was employed by Island Connections as a freelance salesperson for a few years at the turn of the century before being let go. Long serving staff members who remember him were shocked to hear the news about the soft spoken Irish man who “liked a drink” and said, “he and his father were builders!” It is understood he then went on to work for at least one other English language newspaper in the south of the island. Although a native of Dublin, Cullen holds an English passport. He was remanded in custody and is due to appear at the Crown Court later this month.

Sea deaths We highlighted the necessary work of our life saving teams in our last issue. Sadly further deaths in the waters around the islands have underlined the point. An Irishman died whilst diving off Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote, a swimmer training in the sea at Poris de Abona became separated from his friend in the water and his lifeless body was recovered many hours later by the security forces and a fisherman in Fuerteventura was swept or slipped from the rocks on the coast of Las Salinas del Carmen and drowned.

However, she became the first Spanish woman to reach the last eight of the Grand Slam tournament for 15 years. Her impressive US Open run saw the Canarian beat players of the calibre of 8th seed Angelique Kleber and will ensure she remains in the Top 20 when the rankings come out next week. Her last quarter final appearance in a major tournament was in Australia in 2009.

Border Force arrest

Briton jailed for smuggling attempt A

44-year-old man has been jailed for 12 months, years after being found guilty of attempting to smuggle approximately five kilos of cannabis with an estimated street value of £60,000 into the UK. Southampton Crown Court heard that on May 6, 2013 Border Force officers at Southampton International Airport stopped Nicholas Giles who had arrived on a flight from Malaga. Before officers searched his baggage Giles admitted to having five kilos of “weed” in his suitcase. The case was opened and the drugs could be seen wrapped in clear plastic. Giles was arrested and charged and he pleaded guilty at Southampton Magistrates Court on August 12 and was sentenced in the Crown Court at the beginning of September. Malcolm Bragg, from Border Force said, “Our officers play an important role in protecting the public and work hard to make sure drugs are not smuggled into the country. Drug trafficking is a serious offence and those convicted will face prison sentences. The message to anyone tempted to get involved is clear. We will catch you and you will pay with your liberty.” Anyone with information about activity they suspect may be linked to smuggling should call the hotline on 0800 59 5000.

Loro Parque chimpanzee

The gift of sight

A female chimpanzee at Loro Parque has found a new lease of life after having a cataract operation. Silvia, now a 41-year-old grandmother, was the first mammal to move to Loro Parque, which at the time kept only parrots, when she was rescued from a street photographer who kept her chained up. Her eyesight had failed with age until she could only see shades of light in the near distance. However, she can now see once again and has happily rejoined her chimpanzee family to continue her role as a “very calm and kind” matriarch.

The La Laguna side plays in the star-studded ACB league along with the mighty Real Madrid and Barcelona and is just a few weeks away from starting the new season.

world class Go along to Puerto Colón on September 7, 9, 11 and 14 to watch the 18th IWWF World Water Ski Racing Championships. Around 45 racing boats will be pulling an estimated 180 competitors from all over the world. In addition to Spain, countries which have confirmed are Australia, USA, New Zealand, United Kingdom. Belgium, Austria, Netherlands, France and Germany. The Spanish team members are all from Tenerife! This water ski discipline is a race amongst teams of the same category around a circuit marked by buoys. Each team consists of a skier, pilot, observer and a racing boat with over 1,300 Hp which can reach speeds of up to 180 Km/h.

Southerners are urged to don the yellow and black of the team for a noisy day at the stadium

the island and is anxious to change that this year by encouraging basketball enthusiasts to take out a seasonticket for the games at the Santiago Martín stadium on

the motorway between Santa Cruz and La Laguna. Season-ticket prices start at a very reasonable €250, rising to €400 for the VIP seats which give holders ac-

cess to the complimentary catering at half-time. Under-18s can buy their season ticket for just under half the adult price, so there is every reason to make the 17 home games from October to May a family affair. Parking is easy given that the 5,000seater stadium has its own underground car park. Those preferring a more sporadic relationship with the team can buy individual tickets on the night for the Saturday evening games, although availability is not guaranteed when the giants of Spanish basketball are in town. Anyone interested in a season-ticket (‘abono’) can contact the club via Island Connections (email editorial@ic-news.com) or directly on 922 253 684.

Under the banner Las Calles del Ritmo (Streets of Rhythm) the first such event took place on September 1, and will be repeated on October 6. Throughout Triana/Vegueta, an important commercial area of the Gran Canarian capital, the area will become an open air stage with con-

certs, recitals and musical shows to attract those who want to enjoy a day of shopping and leisure entertainment. Jazz, rock, classical music, DJ sessions, hiphop, dance and children’s workshops are all in the pipeline. Children will also be enraptured by bouncy castles, story telling sessions, trampolines, dance instructions, cut and paste play and face make-up for the smallest.

Development prospects

Speaking the lingo The lack of top level language abilities in the majority of the Canarian population is the major brake on the regions further development and internationalisation. The matter is now to be debated in the Canarian Parliament. Lack of languages and in particular English and French (if they wish to work more in the African continent) is holding back the region. The mantra has been that we are ideally placed to scoop contracts from Africa, Europe and the Americas, but all the geographical advantages in the world and all the EU Euros thrown at the area are worth nothing unless the level of language ability in the population can be vastly improved. At the moment, the only solution on offer is to continue training teachers so that bilingual education becomes a reality and continue with the grants for study abroad for gifted pupils.

Fuerteventura

Farm thieves A band of robbers is striking at the small farmers in Fuerteventura, some have been hit more than once. They take whatever they can lay their hands on. Goats, sheep, pumpkins, water melons, melons, solar batteries, a large cooking pot, and a 400 kilo alternator, have all fallen to the thieves who use four by fours and quads and wear ski masks and shadow the farmers to see when and where is the best time and place to attack. The animals are slaughtered on the spot to make the meat easier to transport, obviously without the humane measures or health checks that the EU finds necessary for the animals benefit and our safety. Thefts have been going on for over a year now and the farmers are becoming desperate. If you are offered meat, vegetables etc. from someone who is clearly not a farmer, inform the police.

Customer complaint

Bank attack

Road rage may have a competitor when it comes to being head of the over-the-top anger list. As financial tensions increase so do tempers, but one customer may have taken his protests a little too far. Disgruntled, a 55-year-old man entered a bank in Cabo Blanco, Arona, Tenerife, to complain about incorrect charges on his account. He apparently left the premises after arguing with a bank teller, only to return later to smash up the bank employee’s car. As well as causing extensive structural damage the very dissatisfied customer also poured corrosive liquid all over the vehicle’s roof.

Tenerife tram

Caught on film Images from the Tenerife tram service’s security cameras have been used in over 450 police investigations. Metropolitano, the company that runs the service, has almost 70 cameras around their buildings and on the tram lines as well as 156 on different vehicles. The recordings run 24 hours a day and under normal circumstances images are only kept for one week. However, since 2008, the Guardia Civil, courts, and police forces have requested copies to help with various different investigations including robberies, violence, and car crashes.

he tourism areas of Santiago del Teide, Los Gigantes, Puerto de Santiago and Playa de La Arena are on the point of hanging out the No Vacancy signs. The over 20 hotels and apartment hotels in the area are at 90 per cent of capacity. British tourists are the main clients, followed by the Germans and the Russians. The sharp increase in the number of the latter is particularly pleasing, mainly due to the reopening of the Hotel Royal Sun. Local apartments are full too mainly from interior tourism from the north of the island. The main attraction continues to be the maritime excursions and activities such as diving available from the Los Gigantes marina.

This is the first time Humberside has offered flights to Tenerife since 2008, but if the route is popular they will look to offer a more regular service in the near future. JetXtra.com founder Daniel Reilly announced, “We pride ourselves on being the only company offering transparent fares and this will continue with a free baggage allowance plus no credit and debit card fees.

Bookshop fury

T

he imminent return to school in the Canaries has, as usual, triggered all sorts of controversies relating to the cost of schooling children. However, the biggest row this time has seen bookshops threaten legal action against many schools and even parent associations for selling text books on their premises when they are not licensed traders. The shops are believed to be considering action against up to 20 (mainly private or semi-private) schools over the sales and have urged the authorities to step in to resolve the problem.

“School books represent about 60 per cent of our business and publishers have reneged

on a deal done years ago to only supply shops, in return for a promise by us to cut our

Gran Canaria justice

Fire arrests margins” said a spokesman for the regional Association of Book Shops, which wrote to Canarian president Paulino Rivero and education minister José Miguel Pérez in June asking for guarantees that schools would not be allowed to sell directly. The controversy has been fuelled in recent weeks by repor ts that publishers have been offering books to parent associations at lower prices than to the shops. The sector says that up to 50 shops in Tenerife alone may be forced to close as a result of the unfair competition.

o no-one’s great surT prise, recent on the spot checks by employment inspectors in the resorts in south Tenerife have highlighted what the authorities have described as significant irregularities. According to Spanish daily Diario de Avisos newspaper, during nearly 900 checks made in bars, restaurants and discos, inspectors found that employment legislation had been breached in just under 30 per cent of cases,

usually involving staff not registered for national insurance. In some cases, people found to be working on the premises visited were claiming unemployment benefit at the same time. The head of Tenerife’s inspectors says that his team are stretched to the limit by the checks, which are often carried out late at night or on public holidays. As a result of the visits, over 250 jobs have been forced out of the black and into the open with formal contracts.

The oceans around the archipelago are perfect for this type of energy provider due to the rapidity which shorelines fall to a considerable depth, a constant wave action and minimum climatic risks.

Travelling Brits warned to watch out for unusual laws and customs Foreign Office encourages residents and visitors to be aware of local legislation

P

laying bingo, snacking while sitting on a monument or feeding pigeons may seem innocent enough to many British citizens, but these are just some of the reasons why people have found themselves faced with hefty fines or in some cases arrested or detained abroad. Every year Brits are caught out by local laws and customs which might seem harmless in the UK, but some of which carry serious consequences abroad. Such

incidents can easily be avoided by researching travel destinations in advance and taking note of updates and warnings issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). A recent FCO report* identified that more than a quarter (27%) of cases requiring consular assistance were for arrests or detentions, highlighting the value of familiarising oneself with local laws in order to steer clear of trouble.

Some unusual overseas laws and customs to watch out for include:  Country Barcelona

Netherlands

Law It is against the law to wear a bikini, swimming trunks or to go bare-chested away from the beach front area in Barcelona Don’t carry or use drugs. While the Netherlands has a reputation for being tolerant on the use of so-called ‘soft drugs’, this exists only for designated areas. Possession of prohibited substances or buying them can carry a prison sentence

Penalty/ Consequences Fines

Arrest, detention

Venice

Feeding the pigeons is against the law

Fines

Singapore

Chewing gum on the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system in Singapore is strictly prohibited

Fines

Thailand

It is illegal to import more than 200 cigarettes into Thailand

Charles Hay, FCO Director of Consular Services said: “Consular staff often find that travellers are unaware that local laws apply to them and many British nationals think of their British passport as a ‘get out of jail free’ card. While consular staff will always try to assist British nationals who find themselves in difficulty abroad, we can’t interfere in another country’s legal processes.” “We want Britons to have a great time when they travel abroad so it is a good idea to research the country they are visiting before they travel. Country specific laws and customs can be found at www.gov.uk/foreigntravel-advice .”

Large fines and confiscation

Güímar

Dog beach sabotaged Users of the recently-opened beach for dogs in Güímar believe opponents of the popular facility have resorted to dirty tricks to prevent the pets from enjoying a splash in the sea. The complaints come after an unspecified number of nails were found in the sand. Angry dog owners have urged the town authorities to get to the bottom of the mystery and are sceptical of the official explanation given for the presence of the dangerous nails, which spokespersons for the Ayuntamiento initially said were from wooden planks used for the

big bonfire lit on Midsummer’s Night on the same beach. The opening of the beach on August 2 has been warmly received by dog owners not just in Güímar but in many parts of the island, who drive regularly to the spot to allow their dogs to have a day in the water. However, several locals are angry at the decision because they say they can longer visit the beach due to the number of dogs. The council reports that only two fines have been slapped on dog owners for breaching the beach rules.

La Graciosa

Cash dispenser row

A

cash dispenser failure rarely makes headlines, except if it is the only one available and is out of action for a long time. That is exactly what happened on La Graciosa, where the technical fault that knocked out the tiny island’s only ATM machine made the Spanish national media. The dispenser, belonging to the Caja de Canarias bank (whose branch there has very limited opening hours), developed a problem that lasted a full week, just when the island was enjoying its busiest August period, when the resident population of 650 more than triples due to the influx of tour-

ists. The emergency triggered by the lack of money was so great that some shops and restaurants agreed to swipe credit cards for non-customers and give the full amount of the transaction in cash to ensure people could get by. One well-known B&B allowed clients to leave without paying and settle their bill by post later. The crisis, which has prompted La Graciosa to demand a proper bank service, featured in topselling dailies such as El Mundo and 20Minutos. es. A bank source said the problem was caused by “excessive heat” but residents say it is a common occurrence yearround.

News in Brief >>

Agüímes

Spanish hotspot Agüímes in Gran Canaria is acquiring a reputation as a hotspot weather-wise. The town in the south-east of the island featured in the news for three days in a row towards the end of last month as the place with the highest temperature anywhere in Spain. The thermometers topped 41ºC in the shade during the day, higher than in the usual August record-holders, Andalusia and Extremadura, and the stifling conditions remained throughout the night, with temperatures exceeding 30ºC. The local weather station recorded its highest ever nighttime temperature (33.6ºC) on August 22. Elderly residents in Agüímes said they had never known anything like it. Pensioner José Armas said he had lived through many heatwaves down the years but nothing on the scale of the one that put it on the national weather map and made life difficult for everyone, especially at night. The spell brought significantly greater business for local shops selling fans and portable air conditioning units.

Telde

Police refused petrol Police in Gran Canaria’s second biggest city suffered the embarrassment of being refused fuel for their patrol cars at a local filling station which tired of the council’s failure to pay its bills. According to the Canarias 7 paper, the owners of the filling station took the drastic action after failing to secure payment of arrears amounting to €45,000 for petrol and diesel supplied to the city’s police force in recent months. Instructions were given to staff not to accept the vouchers normally used for purchases. Ironically, the refusal could lead to legal action by the council, which says the station is in breach of its contract with Telde, having been awarded the exclusive right to supply the fuel. “They signed the contract and are legally obliged to fill the tanks on credit” said a council spokesperson. The owner insists that it is the council that has breached the contract by not paying for the services provided already.

poses geological riddle An old egg discovered in Lanzarote has brought great late-summer scientific attention for the island. Palaeontologists believe the rare object discovered during a dig in the Orzola area is around six million years old and proves that Lanzarote was home to a population of giant flightless birds, probably bigger than ostriches. The egg has been proudly shown off to the media by the scientists concerned and by the Lanzarote Cabildo, which funds the painstaking excavations at the site in the north of

the island. Heading the dig team is Antonio Sánchez Marco, an expert in extinct birds, who knew of the existence of ancient remains of the species known as ratites from shell fragments and larger egg parts located previously in the area. While the discovery of prehistoric ratite evidence is by no means new, the riddle raised by the Lanzarote find is how the flightless birds reached an oceanic island, whose geological history indicates it emerged from a volcanic eruption and was never joined to a continent?

Gran Canaria

Irish forgers? Two Irish women were caught in a games arcade in Maspalomas trying to pay with a false €20 note. At the time of the arrest they were accompanied by their six children, all minors. Their explications for the origins of the note were found to be unsatisfactory and arresting officers found that they were in possession of more of the forged money, several receipts for purchases made in the area and a large amount of legal money in sterling and euros. Police found other businesses in the area where the pair had tried to pay with false notes, and believe that several more cases will come to light. It seems that on occasion the children were used to change the bills or pay for purchases. The women are in custody and the children have been sent to a centre for the protection of minors.

Binter

Alleged airline cover-up A

regional airline in the Canaries is under pressure to clarify a serious flight incident which staff allege was covered up by senior management for the company’s convenience. A number of cabin crew at Naysa, which is part of the Binter group and operates some inter-island flights on its behalf, have gone to newspapers with their version of the incident, which was caused by turbulence and led to injury to at least one crew member. According to the ‘official’ version logged by the airline in flight records submitted to the authorities, the turbulence - which saw the plane drop suddenly and lose around 700 metres in altitude in a few seconds affected flight NT152 from Tenerife South to Gran Canaria in early August.

Giant egg find



The version is disputed by crew, who say the incident occurred on the previous flight (NT123), to Tenerife from Gran Canaria, and the plane should have been grounded for inspection under civil aviation regulations. “The Head of Operations ordered the pilots to make the return journey as if nothing had happened. The two injured flight attendants travelled

as passengers, rather than be taken to hospital in Tenerife. One of the women had a fractured leg and her own family had to arrange to get her to hospital in Gran Canaria for treatment. The airline broke the rules to suit its needs” said the staff, who asked for their identities to be kept secret to avoid reprisals from the company.

they are charged a three per cent levy. Several are known to be angry at the conditions (equal to an annual interest rate of 12 per cent), which are worse than some personal loans available from banks. Others feel that the school should promote the handing down of books instead

of cashing in by selling them directly to parents. Despite being grantmaintained, the Luther King also obliges parents to pay a non-refundable deposit of €210 when confirming their child’s place for the following year. Moreover, while restaurants throughout Tenerife have been dropping the price of their daily menus to reflect the crisis, canteen lunches at Luther King have risen again, with individual daily tickets now costing €10, up from €9.50 last year. Children with special dietary requirements must pay an additional €25.50 every month on top of the standard monthly lunch charge of €149.

Health care

Disabled victory A Tenerife doctor who was suspended a few months ago because the authorities felt his minor disability prevented him from performing his GP job properly has helped bring about a major change to the rules governing the training and recruitment of disabled physicians. As reported here in April, 26-year-old Arturo Pedrero was shocked to be declared unfit to practise, despite already working at a health centre. The young doctor suffers from a disability in his right arm due to a birth complication but it did not prevent him from doing his degree in medicine and completing all the required practicals. The decision to suspend him was taken after an Occupational Health check carried out on him at the time of his entry to the compulsory resident doctors’ programme (MIR) highlighted certain problems he might have in performing tasks including giving injections or doing a lumbar puncture. News of his case led to a massive mobilisation by social change activists, including nearly 140,000 signatures on an on-line petition, and the Spanish Ministry of Health has now decided to change the requirements for the MIR to make it easier for disability-sufferers to complete it. “The decision is too late for me as I have to repeat the whole process and prove myself all over again, but others in my situation will benefit from more flexible rules, including the possibility of switching to another field of practice if their disability is considered an obstacle to their chosen specialism” said Arturo.

End to casino monopoly?

You bet!

Tenerife’s hotels have called on the island authorities to give up their current monopoly of gambling casinos and allow them to be set up in hotels. The request has come from the sector’s umbrella body, Ashotel, which says the current format for casinos on the island needs to be completely rethought to put casinos back on the map. Speaking on the radio, Ashotel boss Jorge Marichal said that instead of looking to build a gambling emporium along the lines of Las Vegas, the authorities need to liberalise the existing market and make it possible for hotels to open small casinos on their premises. The island’s three current casinos in Playa de Las Américas, Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz are all owned and operated by the Cabildo and only the first is profitable.

Tenerife journalist’s quest

Juan Manuel Pardellas

Juan Manuel Pardellas, a former editor of the Diario de Avisos and a correspondent for national daily El País for 12 years, has been trying to unravel the mystery of a boat that arrived in Barbados in April

2006 with the mummified remains of 11 occupants. He has managed to discover that the boat left Cape Verde on the west coast of Africa in December 2005 with 47 Africans on board and lost its way as it tried to reach the Canaries, at a time when the arrivals of the long wooden vessels were a common occur-

rence here. Pardellas’ investigation has taken him to Senegal to meet with the families of the dead migrants to learn about the background to their ill-fated voyage, which was organised by traffickers, including a Spanish man who supplied the boat. Last month he visited Barbados to complete his pains-

taking research, which he is to publish in a book in Spanish and – at the specific request of the families – in the Wolof language spoken in Senegal. He has agreed to be interviewed for a forthcoming issue of Island Connections to talk about his personal quest to resolve the mystery.

Adventure without barriers

New mayor named

Project U/TURN

Francisco Linares

T

Tenerife’s most veteran politician is standing down on health grounds. La Orotava mayor Isaac Valencia is to hand over the chain of office on 29 October, six months after he surprised everyone in the northern town with the news that he was stepping aside. Valencia, who is an authoritative voice in the Canarian Coalition (CC) party, has been mayor of La Orotava for 30 years, since first being elected back in 1983. He was hospitalised last winter after collapsing in the street and although his surgery was successful he announced in April that his body was telling him to ease up. “I can’t go on for ever and what I had was not a common cold” he said at the time. Valencia will hand over to his deputy, Francisco Linares, who will see out the rest of the four-year term until the next local elections in May 2015.

enerife has just hosted an unusual group of holidaymakers for whom barriers are there to be broken. The island has just bid farewell to nearly a dozen blind, deaf and paraplegic tourists who signed up for a nine-day adventure holiday arranged by a Belgian company in association with the local Tourism Board. Called Project U/ TURN, the firm specialises in organising challenging trips for people with different disabilities and has taken groups to exotic destinations such as Nicaragua. The programme for the Tenerife holiday included a day at the top of Mt Teide and kayaking, with professional guides and carers on hand at all times to help out. “Our Beyond Borders programme is designed to enable people

with disabilities to engage in exciting and adventurous activities in other countries and even other continents” said a spokesperson. The choice of Tenerife was welcomed by the island author-

ities. Cabildo vice-president Carlos Alonso said it demonstrated the range of possibilities the island has to offer the disabled for a rewarding holiday, while also helping them pursue individual self-achieve-

ment goals. The name Project U/TURN was not chosen by coincidence, insist the organisers on their website: “It has a deeper meaning. The U refers to ‘you’. U / TURN wants to prove that anyone with or without limitations can make an adventurous journey. You just need to have the courage to go for it. You must also have the courage to turn around, therefore the R in reverse. In general U / TURN stands for the known expression: to make a U / TURN, to turn your life 180 degrees so that you as a human being will get stronger”. Around 75 per cent of those who go on one of their adventure trips apply to repeat the experience, adds the firm.

An experience of a lifetime

W

ith the current polemic in mind we set off one fine and sunny day to Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz. Terry Foulkes and I hoped to learn a little about the life of the cetaceans there and to hopefully get up-close and friendly with one or two dolphins. For as long as I can remember I have loved animals and, as well as being as sickened as the next sane person by cruelty, I have always believed, deep down inside, that every being has an inalienable right to freedom. I’ve never lost that youthful idealism but unfortunately we don’t live in an ideal world, and in the short time since my youth things have changed drastically. For a start, in Western Europe and North America at least, animals kept in filthy and cramped conditions, neglected and forlorn, is no longer the norm. Many zoos now have top of the range enclosures that mimic the animal’s wild environment and the occupants are treated with the care and respect they are due. Not everywhere of course, but much more so. But that in itself isn’t enough and isn’t the biggest or most important change. In the last few decades the animal extinction rate has picked up considerable speed and we are on the point of possibly losing many more. On the critically endangered list are the Amur Leopard; Black and Javan rhinos; mountain gorillas; hawksbill and leatherback turtles; the Sumatran elephant, tiger and orangutan; and the south China tiger, to name just a few of the big ones, followed by another 30 plus that are endangered, including the blue whale, bluefin tuna, chimpanzee, Bengal tiger, fin whales, Hector’s dolphin, Indian and African elephants, loggerhead turtles and snow leopards. Some forward thinking zoos have now become custodians of the last remaining examples of several other species and breeding pairs that can possibly save their kind. It isn’t ideal, but we already know that. So with an open mind we were

Loro Parque

A day with the dolphins

Keeping animals in captivity has received a lot of bad press lately and some would say rightly so, but there are always at least two sides to any argument. By Xena Fox looking forward to getting behind the scenes at Loro Parque which is famed for its conservation work and level of care. We were met by head of communications, Dr. Patricia Delponti. We explained we were particularly interested in the cetaceans, so were introduced to trainer Felix Afonso. Felix has worked with the Loro Parque dolphins for the last 13 years. There are 10 bottlenosed dolphins at present: the Parque’s original six were captured from the wild in the Florida Keys 30 years ago. Four of

these are still there and all the rest were born in the Parque. The enthusiasm shines out of Felix’s eyes as he talks about the dolphins and as we chat by the show pool one suddenly appears, much to our delight. And then another, and a couple more. They come to our side and look at us inquisitively. The dolphins have a free range around the Parque’s five pools (containing a total of seven million litres of sea water) and had come to check us out. We ask if the pool’s exits are closed during the shows, “No, not at all”,

answers Felix, “they can wander off during a show, but they never seem to want to”. He firmly believes the dolphins enjoy their life at Loro Parque. They even have their favourite trainers, he says, and tells us about his particular friendship with Luna and Taina. Not all of the dolphins take part in every show and the order of the routines is varied constantly. The dolphins’ day to day activities are changed too: they have training sessions for learning new showpieces and there are games with hoops, buoys

and “even mirrors”, chuckles Felix at the image of the dolphins watching themselves curiously in a mirror. Having seen how much fun that is with cats and dogs, we giggle too, imagining it easily. He also says these wonderful creatures are easily as intelligent as they are famed for – and just as playful. They always know the new trainers and like to be mischievous with them. There are also regular medical sessions where, thanks to the trust built up between the team and the cetaceans, the dolphins are happy to have blood or temperature taken or glide gracefully onto the weighing scales. From the pool Felix takes us to the kitchens and store rooms, explaining that the dolphin’s diet is carefully monitored and adapted. They eat four different types of fish – herring, sprat, capelin and squid and also sugar free gelatin and, of all things, ice cubes – they love them apparently. We pass by one of the ‘backstage’ pools and see two-yearold Ilse playing ball with her mum Sanibel and then, unfortunately, it is time to leave the dolphins. We meet Dr. Javier Almunia, Deputy Director of the Loro Parque Foundation and, Cetacean research and education coordinator. The Loro Parque Foundation was created in 1994 to carry out education, conservation and breeding programmes and, though the majority of their work is with parrots, around 15 per cent of resources are dedicated to cetacean projects. One of the current studies involves the recognition and analysis of the orca’s sounds. Orca groups have their own ‘dialect’ of whistles that can be recognised and remembered by others. In conjunction with La Laguna University, Tenerife, the foundation is currently developing software which will make it easier for data and whistle recordings to be stored and compared in the future. Another group at the university is studying the links between sound and behaviour. Las Palmas University, Gran Canaria, runs the programme that measures marine contamination

in cetaceans by measuring levels of chemicals found in their bodies – with interesting results. For instance, the dreaded DDT pesticide, banned decades ago, is still stored in cetacean’s bodies. The university also collaborates on the proposed Macaronesia sanctuary that first Loro Parque, and then its Foundation, has been fighting for during the last 30 years. The term Macaronesia covers the archipelagoes of the Azores, Madeira Islands, Canaries and Cape Verde Islands. Though widely spaced, the islands share many similarities and are linked by the movement of sea currents. One of the impulses for the initial proposal was the continued hunting of whales off Madeira, something which has now been stopped, yet the campaign continues to try to unite the countries to create a safe haven as they are one of the vital living and breeding areas of whales and dolphins. Eighty per cent of all existing cetaceans can be seen in the oceans round the Canary Islands for instance. Loro Parque pays all of the Foundation’s management and running costs, meaning that any monies raised can go straight to its 36 conservation and research projects that are currently taking place in 20 different countries. After the interview we were collected by our delightful companion for the day, Daniel Sicilia, who is on work placement after doing his business

studies degree. He was yet another extremely enthusiastic person and this was one of the things that stood out during our visit - everyone loved the animals. And then we had the absolute joy of seeing the shows. First we went to Orca Ocean, open since 2006. There are currently six orcas at the Parque. Four of them are on loan from SeaWorld in the USA: two males, Keto and Tekoa, and two females, Kohana and Skyla, who were all born in captivity. Kohana gave birth to Adan, the fifth orca, in Loro Parque, and the sixth is Morgan, a young female rescued from the sea in June 2010. She was sent to Loro Parque by a Netherlands court that feared for her safety in the wild. There was much controversy at the time, but it has

since been confirmed that she suffers a severe hearing loss that could be total. Much has also changed since the dreadful accident in which an orca trainer died at Loro Parque, in December 2009, and now trainers do not get in the water with the orcas. The orcas were magnificent – they jumped, danced, soaked the crowd, slid onto the stage and shimmied off, all with superb style. Having never seen the orcas before, I must confess to having a tear in my eye at the beauty and grace of the animals, and the splendour of their presence. Terry agreed, saying she cried the first time she saw them and couldn’t believe her luck at being able to get so close to the huge mammals, nor how responsive they were. The dol-

phin show we saw straight after was just the same: simply magic. We wondered if the crowds and their noise bother the orcas and dolphins, as some critics have suggested, but were told about the noise measurements taken in the pools which are, unfortunately, actually at lower levels than in many a modern ocean. Imagine, we were also told, when you place your head underwater and everything becomes quieter and muffled. I come away feeling more reassured. I also realised even more deeply that there is no clear answer to the question of animals in captivity anymore. For a start, many were born there and it’s all they have known. To say all of them should be released is unrealistic to say the least. Apart from the almost impossible logistics of doing so in a responsible manner, without training the majority of them would die very quickly of starvation, then there is lack of predator awareness and coming into contact with diseases they have been sheltered from hitherto etc. Even with training (just imagine the logistics for that alone) many of them would still die quickly, or slowly and painfully – wouldn’t that be crueler? So… maybe no more should be taken out of the wild and placed in zoos. Quite right, except: what about the ones that are on the point of extinction, those whose habitat

Muelle de Santa Catalina S/N, Local 21 35008 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

cannot be saved from the ravages of man. Do we let them die too? And should all research be stopped if it affects one animal – even though it might save the rest of its kind? I believe it’s our responsibility to try and save those animals we can and take steps to control the damage we have wrought. Zoos now have a vital role to play in this, and also have to face up to their responsibility. Refreshingly, Loro Parque is doing just that and has always been a pioneer in its field. There is much more to be done, but even those visitors who go just to look at the animals are doing their bit towards saving them as a share of the Parque’s profits goes straight to the Foundation. I’ll never quite shake of the belief that we should all be free, but I’m enough of a pragmatist to understand that it just isn’t possible, and is getting less so. There is too much to be done within the available framework to waste time we don’t have on fighting for an unrealistic ideal. There is still much more that can be done - to protect the animals in captivity as well as those in the wild. At the moment the best any of us can do is support those organisations that are trying to make a difference, and encourage their advances.

he adver tised requirements, fairly flexible and easily met by a large sector of the population, were as follows: “Wanted! Children and adults with Canarian, European and Indigenous roots, and of all ages and physical types. Natural look preferred, with long hair and dark, weathered skin. Absolutely no artificial hair colouring or visible tattoos”. Whilst this last requirement effectively ruled out the poor changa, or chav, sector at present holidaying here from Tenerife, bass boxes booming despite the absence of straight roads to speed along, the rest of the island could consider itself included in this call should it wish to, and Island Connections was there to see who turned up and how the day went. The call was for a casting session for film extras to work on Ron Howard’s forthcoming film, In the Heart of the Sea, to be released by Warner Bros, forty per cent of which will be shot on location in La Gomera, five per cent in Lanzarote and the rest in the new WB Leavesden Studio in Watford, opened last summer on the back of the success of the Harry Potter films. See pdf.islandconnect ions.eu/6 98/pdf/island _ connections_006.pdf for an earlier article about actor, producer and director Ron Howard and the film, which is basically a remake of the Moby Dick story, with this version based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s award winning book, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaling Ship Essex.

Fame at last? By Barbara Belt

Mid-August saw great excitement on the island of La Gomera, with local radio, digital press and posters announcing an opportunity for islanders of all ages to get involved in something very unusual; A first, in fact, for the island and its twenty-three thousand inhabitants.

fourteen year old Thomas Nickerson’s account of his harrowing adventures following the sinking of the Essex and his book was published by Penguin in 2001, bringing renewed interest to the famous story that had inspired Herbert Melville to write Moby Dick a hundred and fifty years earlier in 1851. Back to the casting session, which took place one

Sunday in fishing village Playa Santiago’s cultural centre, lent for the day by the local town council, along with a couple of municipal workers who helped process applications. Doors opened at ten in the morning, and by eleven, local car parks were full, bars were doing a roaring trade and a long queue of aspiring extras snaked out of the door, along the pave-

ment and round the block. It was a hot day and, with the beach right there, there was a lot of popping across the road for a quick dip to cool off. Noticeable exceptions were the large number of young, pretty girls who turned up, despite the call for ‘natural looks’, beautifully made up and groomed. I asked seventeen year old Yaiza and her friends what had brought them

there. “Haven’t you seen who’s starring? Gorgeous! We all want to be the girlfriend, or if not, at least get close. Maybe we’ll get to meet these lovely guys!” they said, referring to Chris Hemsworth and Tom Holland. The rest of the people in the eleven o’clock queue, although predominantly under forty-five, were of all shapes and sizes. Local production agents are Sur Film and casting director Diego Betancor manned the reception desk with the town council staff, whilst Lorena Hernandez took the photos. “Physical appearance is important, but so is attitude. We’re looking for people with spark”, explained Diego. Numbers were given out

and as it was each person’s turn, they were shown into a room, where Lorena stood them in front of a white, lit screen and took a couple of shots with a hand held camera, gently reminding everybody to look straight at the camera without smiling or posing. From there, they passed to where Diego and helpers registered their details and casting numbers and explained that a form

would arrive by email and should be filled in and returned with documentary evidence of ID. By one o’clock, there was a bit more of an age range and things were going well, with person number 282 being processed. Diego hoped they would reach a thousand by the end of the day. I heard a nice story at Bar Restaurante Junonia, just along the road. The bar’s become something of a base for the film crew. Owner Fran speaks English. The waiter, Miguel, told his story: “Christian and Yanira from the film came in one night. We didn’t know they had anything to do with the film then. It was nine o’clock, we were full and there was a twenty minute wait, so they went and sat on the wall opposite. I did what I always do and took them over a complimentary drink. You have to look after your customers. “A couple of weeks later, they came back, said they were from the film, had been everywhere, but liked it here. Ron Howard came. He doesn’t speak much Spanish, but is nice, as they all are. The second time they came, they asked my name and told me I’m exactly right for the film and took my photo! I really like the idea. They’ve got nice energy. This is very inspiring for young people here. I’m happy to be involved. I can say to my kids, look at this! When I’m long gone, I’ll still be there on film”. The day, according to Diego, was a success. “Everyone’s happy. A thousand people showed up. Local help was great. It all went well”.

Job prospects

No work ever An estimated 15 per cent of the population in the Canaries will never get a job in their lives unless the situation improves drastically according to the Canarian Economic and Social council. The forecast was made using information from the actual economic, social and employment situation of the archipelago last year and highlighted in their annual report which has just been presented. The Canaries is also the region which has most increased the number of people of an age to be looking for work and also that which has seen the highest increase in unemployment. They warn that the sector of the population that is able to obtain employment cannot maintain the society and that the system is unstable and unsustainable. Only three out of every 10 persons over 55 can find work and less than that number in the under 25s age group. In addition, they underline that the unemployment here is of “poor quality” with low qualification levels, too young or over 55. The number of young people unemployed has increased by 45 per cent in the last year, mainly it is believed because of the number of young people who went straight into well paid jobs in construction, without qualification and are now unemployed. Bright lights on the horizon? The number of places for job training schemes has increased as has the demand and that there is a great deal of solidarity out there to help those in need. However the prospect is still very grim indeed for 15 out of 100 Canarian residents.

hy would you use Sebastian & St James rather than go to your bank or building society, or even go direct to an insurance company yourself? There are a number of very good reasons, from customer service to impartial advice:

Around 60,000 people are employed directly by the various Canarian government departments, with a similar number holding jobs in local government (town halls and Cabildos) and the state administration. The overall total of 122,000 is considered too high by many, even though it is significantly down on previous years as a result of the cuts implemented in recent times. Noises continue to be made by political parties as to the need to trim staffing levels further but the different tiers of administration here (council, island, regional and state) are highly protective of their jobs, all of which they insist are vital.

For the first time in six years, not only has the amount sold not reduced there has been an increase of two per cent on 2012. It seems to be another sign that the Canarian economy is recovering ahead of the rest of Spain – as was expected. The latest figures from the national statistics institute show a 1.9 per cent increase in sales in the Canaries, compared to a two per cent drop on average in the rest of Spain. The Canaries and Balearics, which increased 3.5 per cent, were the only regions to see an improvement.

EDITION 703 :: 06/09/2013 - 19/09/2013 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

By Vera Liprandi Lawyer with De Cotta Law

Children, custody and visits Family law news

There have been a lot of stories about the increase in child abduction cases between countries where parents live in different countries or have to leave the country they are living in for economic reasons. Sadly the issue of child custody and visits is one that arises in the summer holidays when the parents don’t have an agreement and are living apart. Spanish courts are very strong in protecting the rights of a parent to spend time with their children. Judges generally award every other weekend to the parent who doesn’t live with the child and four weeks in the summer, with alternate Christmas and Easter holidays. When advising parents we always stress that while it is preferable to reach agreement privately, if it is necessary to go to court you must expect this type of order to be given. Naturally, the majority of parents fully appreciate the need for their children to have time with each parent and also understand that for chil-

dren routine helps to create stability and reduces the stress of a breakdown in the parent’s relationship. All lawyers now encourage a dialogue between the couple and professional advice and help with reaching a settlement can remove some of the barriers to a private agreement so there is no need for a contentious court proceeding. The agreement should be formalised in the country where the children are living and will deal with maintenance and future arrangements. It is often advisable to put in a clause about the possibility of one of the parents moving to another country and have an agreement to revise the visiting arrangements if that does happen. For example if one parent returns to their home country they may want to have long weekends every month and more time during the holiday period. Older children may be expressing strong views about the future arrangements and the judges will listen to these views in some cases. However

it is very important that the children are not made to feel they must choose between the parents, so again it is better to reach agreement rather than putting any pressure on them to make decisions. Having a good understanding of what is likely to happen in court if the parents can’t reach agreement often helps a couple to settle things between them. Judges do focus on the needs and interests of the children and will be prepared to intervene if they think these are not being met equally. There have now been some decisions on joint custody in Spain and it seems likely this will be extended in the future.

elgian poet Paul Dermée, famed for his part in the Paris Cubist movement, is said to have considered works of art as being situated in their own special dimension, “like an island on the horizon.” This evaluation forms the basis for one of the latest collections at the Tenerife Arts Space in Santa Cruz which unites the creations of almost 20 Canarian artists in homage to the inspiration that can be found in our beautiful archipelago. In the Isla Ilesa exhibition the emphasis is on expression and landscape and the exhibits show a variety of styles and ideologies brought into being via sculpture, photography, painting and 3D creations. You can visit the exhibition until November 3 in Sala C at the TEA and see: www.teatenerife. es for more information.

Gardening knowhow

Aromatic delights Herbs can make a wonderful addition to any garden, patio, rockery or balcony. They are quite easy to maintain and will grow happily in most areas; several, such as rosemary, sage, thyme and lavender are even useful for coastal gardens. Generally speaking herbs prefer a sunny, sheltered location with neutral to alkaline soil and good drainage, though there are a few which thrive in shady conditions and moist soil, such as chervil, parsley, meadowsweet, mint, lemon balm and chives. Your reward for a little simple care is an almost constant supply of delicious herbs as leaves can be nipped off as and when you need them, and perennials such as thyme, sage and rosemary can be harvested all year round with care. Out in the garden For your very own herb patch the first thing you need to do is prepare the ground. Your aim is to create a sandy, well-drained soil of moderate fertility. If you have heavy clay you can easily create a free-draining and fertile bed by digging a hole 35 to 45 centimetres deep and placing a five to ten centimetre layer of crushed stone or coarse sand on the bottom. Before returning the soil, dig through some organic

matter such as manure, compost and green waste, as well as a little coarse grit and/or sand. When you refill the beds lay the mix a bit higher than the original level to allow for settling. Although most herbs will tolerate a slightly acid soil you are aiming for neutral to alkaline so if it is very acid simply add a little lime. Plan it out If you take the time to make a plan you will get to know your herbs better before you start and can have lots of fun positioning your plants. First of all make a list of herbs that you’re most likely to use including a description of their height and spread, foliage and/or flower colour as well as their spacing, soil, light and water requirements. Then make a sketch of the shape of the bed, preferably to scale (for example, 2.5cm on the sketch equals 1m on the ground). When deciding how to arrange your herbs one of the first things you need to know is whether they are annual or biennial, such as basil, coriander, parsley, dill and chervil which grow quickly, or perennial like oregano, mint, thyme, sage, rosemary and chives which are slower growing and require a more permanent abode. The two different types will probably have to be kept separate as areas that hold annu-

als will need to be reworked more often. Plants also need to be arranged according to height. Ideally, island beds (that can be accessed from all sides) shouldn’t be any wider than 1.5m. The tallest herbs go in the centre, progressing to shorter ones around the outside. A border bed (accessed only from the front) shouldn’t be much wider than 75cms. Place the tallest plants at the back of the border and the lower ones in front of them. Plants can also be arranged to their best aesthetic advantage. For instance the silver-grey foliage of lavender or sage provides a wonderful background for bright flowers; herbs with colourful leaves can make any bed even more interesting; and low-growing plants such as chives and thyme can make a wonderful path edge. You could also arrange the plants to form a distinctive pattern or to highlight a special feature such as a fountain, garden seat or birdbath. Also, bear in mind that herbs like mint spread very quickly and will need to be contained. Simply plant them in the ground in bottomless pots with the top of the pot level with, or just above, the soil surface. Care should also be taken in planting coriander and continental parsley close together as both seed copiously

and can become mixed up as they have similar leaves. Indoors & containers The majority of herbs will also be quite happy in a nice pot or container. Relatively deep ones are best, especially for larger plants such as rosemary, and make sure that the container has effective drainage. Thyme, lavender, and rosemary will all thrive in a pot in the garden or on a balcony, whilst chives, parsley, basil, coriander, marjoram, dill and mint will all grow well in a sunny spot indoors. Tips Sow annual or biennial herbs such as parsley and coriander at intervals of three to four weeks to ensure a continuous supply of fresh leaves. Don’t fertilize herb plants too much or they will produce lots of lush growth, but with little flavour. Pinch off tips every now and again to inspire the plant to grow bushier and to stop annual herbs, such as basil, from blooming; energy spent on seed production means less for leaf growth. Deadhead others as the flowers start to fade. Pick herbs in the morning when the fragrant and flavourful oils are at their best and harvest the full plant just before they bloom as it is then that they are at their most delicious.

Oh, what a perfect day! Back in England again, I am here this time to cover the Goodwood Revival Race Meeting. By John

My son, ace snapper that he is, and I are just about to spent two days in fancy dress (sorry, delete that and substitute period costume!) at Goodwood airfield, the home of the famous old race circuit; where Stirling Moss had his near fatal crash all those years ago. Fortunately, nothing so serious is expected to cause problems during our time there, unless you count those owners of million pound racers gritting their teeth when one collided with another, as they were raced, as indeed they should be, in anger. At his home, just over half an hour away, I discovered that the family had gathered to take us for dinner on the beach. Dinner on the beach? After a quick change, I was hustled out of the house in Hove Park to the nearby bus stop where we caught the local bus into Brighton, and which deposited us (for those of you who know Brighton) in Churchill Square. A five minute walk down the sloping road took us to the beach promenade. Directly below, housed in one of the famous converted fishermen’s arches, was the equally famous sea food restaurant by the name of Riddle & Finns, renowned for champagne and oysters, and for being block-booked solid when the Labour Party conference comes to town. Our political masters are not known for being abstemious when it comes to the trough,

are they? I had not been to this place before. The old arched tunnel had been transformed to create a restaurant on two levels, with an open-plan kitchen behind, and a large terrace to the front. That terrace faces directly out to sea. Tables and chairs are of the extreme rustic variety. No cloths on the wooden slatted tables, and sadly no cushions on the plain wood chairs. You come here for the fish. And everywhere around is the hustle and bustle of Brighton beach, teeming, in the evening sunshine, with masses of holidaymakers. Am I going to like it here, a small quiet voice whispers in my mind? Well, indeed, yes I am. I have a menu laid before me and what is written on it is stunning.

They were excellent, as were the whelks, so often chewy when overcooked. Much sniggering about “giant bogeys” from the grandchildren! This was turning out to be an evening to savour and to remember. Not for nothing do Riddle & Finns reckon that they are the best seafood restaurant on the South Coast. Certainly, I know none better unless you mention Storm, further along at Poole. We had no room for dessert, and, although we tottered away nearly £200 lighter, we felt that the six of us had been somewhere very good and eaten really, really specially. David

had lived up to his reputation and for once, Gordon Ramsay had been right. Guess where we shall be going on our next trip back to see the family?

Cheese cake with a difference

New from Paxton and Whitfield – who else? – their kind of cheese cakes.

S

tar ting this month, Iberostar has begun a series of gastronomic sessions with famous female Spanish chefs at the Grand Hotel Mencey in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, designed to satisfy even the most demanding palates in the archipelago.

From £75 to £450 and to serve from 25 people up to 220 people are the eight varieties which are available at the moment, or you can order a bespoke model. Only one of the varieties is available for export sadly, but it’s a great idea! We’ve had experience with ordering Paxton and Whitfield cheeses over here and they arrived in perfect condition. See their webpage at www.paxtonandwhitfield.co.uk for more information.

Ice cream tops

Frozen favourites Four ice cream parlours in the Canaries are amongst the top ten in the country according to the users of TripAdvisor. Top spot went to DelaCrem in Barcelona, but in second place was Antiu Xixona in Lanzarote’s Costa Teguise which is known for top quality ice creams and cakes as well as other gourmet delights. Fourth place was for Italian artisan ice cream from El Gusto in Corralejo, Fuerteventura. Their products include cactus, local banana, pineapple and aloe vera ice creams, made using locally produced fruit, as well as a full selection of ice cream cakes. In fifth place was another Italian speciality shop, Gelatería Italiana Verderosa in Lanzarote’s Playa

41

Blanca. The favourite here is their dark chocolate ice cream. And finally, in ninth place, II Nuovo Gelato, also in Lanzarote where the ice creams are, “home made, creamy, and with an authentic 100 per cent natural flavour”.

Sweet treats

Tenerife Bakery one of best in Spain Cakes and pastries are as much a part of Spanish gastronomy as sangria and tapas. They are a breakfast favourite with many people, come in a myriad of different guises and are the welcome centre piece at most family celebrations. So it’s no wonder their confection has become an art, with the very

best bakeries drawing customers from far and wide. Luckily for those who live in Tenerife, according to the rankings on the 20minutos.es website the second best bakery in the whole of Spain is the Pastelería Díaz. The family run company has six coffee and cake shops in the north of the island, in La Laguna, Santa Cruz, Taco, El Sobradillo, Los Majuelos and Las Caletillas, as well as providing wholesale treats to several retailers. The first shop opened in 1968 and since then business has grown and grown thanks to the company’s perfect combination of traditional Canarian ingredients and recipes with tastes to suit the most modern sweet-toothed palates. See: www.pasteleriadiaz.com to see a range of the company’s delights.

All the featured chefs have been awarded Michelin stars and this monthly event, offering a masterclass and/or a tasting menu dining experience, looks as if it’s going to be a must-do for gourmands in the Canaries. The first of the sessions kicks off with Beatriz Sotelo from Restaurante A Estación in Cambre (La Coruña) on September 7. The masterclass runs from 11.30am to 1pm and costs €30 and the menu with some superb accompanying local and well known Spanish peninsula D.O. wines at 9.30pm is just €68. Beatriz will be offering a menu full of Galician specialities and ingredients including: Finisterre razor fish with citrics; Jack fish with a blended pepper and vinegar sauce, spinach and strawberries; Fish of the day with cockle rice, goose barnacles and basil and Can-

nelloni of Galician Piñeira hen, wild mushrooms, the famous San Simon da Costa cheese and truffle flavoured juice from the roast, as well as novelties using Spanish ingredients such as Spanish beef tataki with wasabi yoghurt and Brioche French toast with a vegetable vinaigrette and pineapple ice cream. Future star-studded chefs invited are: Macarena de Castro from the Restaurante Jardín en Alcudía (Mallorca) who will offer a masterclass and tasting menu based on Pure Mediterranean Sea; Yolanda León of Restaurante Cocinandos in León, will present León – What are its flavours? and Fina Puigdevall of the Restaurante Les Cols de Olot in Gerona proposes to tempt you with Buckwheat

in our cooking. The Mencey’s Kitchen Classroom is unique and since it opened it has dedicated itself to offering its clients new gastronomic experiences of a high quality. In a relatively short period of time, it has been successful in becoming a reference point for the whole island. The hotel is easily found, situated on a corner of the Ramblas in the capital, right near the Parque García Sanabria. The sessions are open to all those who would like to enjoy the best of Spanish gastronomy in a truly splendid setting and you can book now online using www.lacocinadelmencey. com or by calling 922 609 900.

who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing. It can not only lessen the numbers of deaths but is also said to reduce damage to the heart. Thus one aim of the programme, being jointly run by cardiology professionals, the hospital’s emergency wards and the Canarian Emergencies Service (SUC), is to broaden knowledge of heart massage techniques. Relations of those suffering cardiac disease and other related conditions are often taught these techniques so they may have the chance of saving their loved ones, however the hospital aims to offer the short courses to a wider public, the first to do so in Spain.

Accident health insurance

Línea Directa’s medical treatment guarantees quality With this service, the first of its kind in Spain, each patient saves an average of two months and 15 days in his or her treatment. The treatment is offered free of charge in all policies and covers not only the people travelling in the insured car but also injured third-parties. At the end of 2004, Línea Directa launched its ‘full medical treatment’ service, a complete private network of health assistance which guarantees those people injured in traffic accidents complete and immediate health assistance. The service, the only one of

its kind in Spain, is totally free and is available to everybody – drivers and occupants – travelling in a car insured by Línea Directa, whether they are to blame for the accident or not, as well as injured third parties. To operate this service, Línea Directa has created an extensive assistance network by means of collaboration agreements with prestigious medical specialists, hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, diagnosis centres and patient transportation service. Línea Directa also offers its customer services entirely in English and German, acting as intermediaries not only with repair garages, but

Electronic cigarettes

Lesser of two evils E-cigarettes, battery-operated devices that issue a dose of nicotine via water vapour rather than smoke, are becoming increasingly popular. The electronic devices contain a solution of nicotine, water, either propylene glycol or glycerine, and sometimes flavourings. This liquid is heated so it forms vapour which is then inhaled to deliver the nicotine straight to the lungs, offering a ‘hit’ that is similar to

smoking a cigarette, but without some of the detrimental effects. They are becoming so widely used that here in the Canary Islands shops selling a stunning array of different makes and styles are springing up at a considerable rate. Long-term studies on their use have yet to be undertaken, but health officials have certainly accepted them as the lesser of two evils. For a start, they only contain nico-

Tropical diseases

Senegal saves Canarian research centre The Canarian Tropical Diseases University Institute (IUET) has been saved from the possibility of having to stop much of its vital investigation work thanks to the intervention of the Senegal

government. Due to not receiving its normal funding from the Office of Excellence and the Spanish Agency for Cooperation and Development (AECID), the organisation faced having to make massive

also with medical centres. Thanks to the speed of all the processes included in this service, which makes it possible to reduce waiting times and achieve a better and faster recovery, patients save an average of two months and 15 days in their treatment which allows them to get back to their personal and professional lives much sooner. This treatment is offered in conjunction with Línea Directa’s ‘psychological attention plan’, which includes professional support both for those people who have been involved in a traffic accident as well as for their closest family

members. You can find out more about all the benefits available at www.lineadirecta.com or by calling 902 123 104.

tine and not tobacco. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, but much less dangerous than tobacco, and ordinary cigarettes also contain a cocktail of other harmful drugs. The heated smoke inhaled from cigarettes is also damaging to lungs, and that is avoided too. Also, though the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the liquid and vapour to contain traces of toxins, including nitrosamines and formaldehyde, known to be cancer-causing, the level of these is about one thousandth of that in cigarette smoke. Early studies on whether they can help people give up smoking have been promising.

Their advantage is that they look and feel like cigarettes; give out a smoke-like vapour that feels like smoking; satisfy cravings quickly; and also fulfill the same hand-to-mouth habit that smoking instills. Research by the University of East London (UEL), published in Addiction Journal, showed that nearly 75 percent of the 1,400 people who took part in a worldwide study started using e-cigarettes as a complete alternative to smoking, though only seven per cent specifically began with the idea of using them as an aid to giving up the dreaded weed. Nevertheless, 86 per cent of the vapers, as Ecigarette users are called, confirmed they had not smoked cigarettes for several weeks or months From 2016, Electronic cigarettes are to be licensed as an aid to quit smoking in the UK, which is probably not a bad thing. They will be classed as medicines, their contents regulated, and more research undertaken. Meanwhile, though the ideal situation is to not smoke anything at all, E-cigarettes may well be a very good step to take towards that end.

cuts in the very near future and even faced closure. However, officials from Senegal have offered €325,000 for next year’s budget, allowing the Canarian foundation’s work on the control of tropical diseases to continue. President of Senegal, Macky Sall, is honorary president of the foundation, which is one of the Canary Island’s flagship investigative units. Further grants from other African countries have not been ruled out.

Hi everyone

hey say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but I can tell you that sometimes, it really does.

You may remember that some little while ago Carole Vedmore, Elliot Owen’s wife, suffered a stroke? It has taken nearly two years for this brave lady to recover speech and movement of her legs and right arm, and although her left arm is still a little twisted, it too is improving. Elliot was her mainstay, and did everything possible for his wife, ably supported by their daughter, Charlotte. And now the lightning has struck again, and this time Elliot is the sufferer. His speech is not so badly affected, but the hospital is worried about his heart as it is the left side of his body which is stricken. His balance is also bad and he frequently falls over. Once again, their daughter Charlotte has been wonderful and has done everything humanly possible for such a young lady, but Carol would like me to thank especially Steve Delsey, Cy Benson, and Gordon King

Letters & comments

Begging scams Dear Editor

I

was sitting in a local bar recently when a man came around handing out cards written in Spanish asking for help. There was a photograph of a young child on them claiming that she was five years old and in need of special treatment for cancer. Even a non-Spanish reader could see the number ‘5’, see the picture of a child and the word cancer. There was a number on the card to call to speak to a “doctor” to confirm that the information was true. Unsurprisingly the number was a mobile phone. I didn’t even bother to make the call, I certainly didn’t give him any money.

who have come to the rescue, especially as neither Carol or Elliot can now drive. I’ve just spoken to Carol, and her sense of humour is still, as it always was, present in abundance. For both of these former entertainers, their career is now finished, yet they hold dear to their hearts everyone they worked with in the past, some of whom are coming to their rescue now.

On September 8 there will be a benefit show for this lovely couple at the Heritage Bar, Los Cristianos, behind the Apolo Centre. I myself will be there, at about 4pm and I hope to see a lot of you there. The show should be great for the whole of the afternoon, so put the date into your diary. Many thanks for your feedback on last issue’s column about the tobacco smoke enemas. Some of the old ‘cures’ are astonishing, and yet one or two of them are beginning to make a comeback, like the use of a certain strain of maggot to cure open wound infection, and bee stings to help epilepsy. I was having Sunday lunch at

the Eldon House, and chatting to Mary, herself a nurse for 30 years and recently retired to Tenerife, and we reminisced about our own time in training. Nursing was what I did when I left school, and then went on to a career in show business as a singer, finally ending up as a teacher, (having been a mature student) in case the entertainment business faded as I got older. I’m glad to say it never did, and I enjoyed my years here as a comedienne immensely. It’s only in the past four years, since the failed hip replacement and other related injuries that I’ve had to stop my own wonderful career. But Mary and I enjoyed ‘talking the talk’ and bemoaning the fact that the care in hospitals has declined since the demise of The Matron. In earlier years, each ward had its own sister in charge, staff nurse, senior and junior nurses, and a full compliment of cleaning staff who belonged to the ward and took an immense pride in their work. There were no infections like MRSA or worse, every bed was changed immediately

there was a spillage or a stain from dressings, and the lockers were washed and sterilised inside and out and were immaculate. For the elderly, there was a large supply of night gowns and pyjamas, and they were encouraged to get out of bed each day and sit in an armchair beside their locker. Whenever there was a lull in the daily routine on the ward, the junior nurses were given a large amount of steel wool, and would be sent into the sluice to bring a shine back to the interior of the bedpans. It was a horrible job, but we took the opportunity to share off ciggie between us, as one could smoke and the other could keep a watch out for sister or staff nurse. It was great chatting to Mary, who was a nurse in Ireland, and as she pointed out, all Matrons, ward sisters, and staff nurses were identical holy terrors no matter where they nursed.

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

After he’d left, the barman told me he’d been giving out the same card for a couple of years, changing his target audience. The child remained five years old. He spoke of this individual making over €20 tax-free in under an hour in bars where he worked previously. There are so many genuine cases of need out there, with registered charities, where the money really goes to those in need. Please ask your readers not to be taken in by some sick scammer who uses the excuse of a seriously ill child to make money.

Dog beach for the south Dear Editor

P

lease can you let the authorities know that we would like a dog beach in the south too. It doesn’t have to be on their posh imported sand, or even a huge area, just somewhere where the mutts can go for a run, play ball and swim or paddle in the waves. Not everyone has a car to go up to Güímar, especially the elderly people, or as an alternative how about some dog owners doing a car share to get up there? It’s such a joy to see them enjoying the seashore and it’s a shame that so few can do so.

Many thanks Bella Hodges Las Galletas

Long-term commitments work out for the best, careers are profitable and meaningful and there are a lot of doors opening for you right now.

Cancer 22.06. – 22.07.

You will begin to want to be quiet and reconnect to your spiritual centre. You need to learn how to turn the 20 minute power nap into a 20 minute power meditation.

Leo 23.07. – 23.08.

It seems that an authority figure doesn’t care too much for your professional image. Take no notice and start thinking about how you want to utilize all that wonderful energy now.

Sagittarius 23.11. – 21.12.

Ruth Benson Was Carter thought the coin collection that raised over €5000 to save two families from eviction was, “lovely”. On the statistics saying 8 in 10 Canarians under 30 still live with their parents, Julie Mayberry said, “Yup, my son is Canarian, 20 yrs old, just started his first job, and he’s one of the lucky ones, landed right on his feet, but even he knows he’d be nuts to leave home.” The most popular posting for the two weeks to August 30 was the story of the skies lighting up over the Canary Islands, probably due to a meteor, which caught the eye of 1588 people.

You are filled with a new awareness and as you tap into it, you will become very magnetic to others around you. They are now attracted to you, turned on by your energy.

Don’t drop the donkey! The majorero as it is known here was once heavily used for agricultural work, however once mechanisation took over their numbers began to drop. They can still be seen on many of the islands, but the majority of the remaining few are in Fuerteventura. The majorero’s ancestors were the wild asses of North Africa (Equus africanus asinus) which were introduced by the conquistadors. They have similar characteristics to others in Sardinia and Sicily, but are considered a separate subspecies. They are particularly well adapted to the Island’s volcanic environment and are tough and energetic. Unfortunately there are only around 200 examples left and they are officially listed as being in danger of extinction. Luckily their friendly and placid nature has made them a favourite with many people and several

associations are now dedicated to supporting them. One of the most important, the Asociación del Burro Majorero, recently held their annual conference, which was attended by Juan Capote, a veterinarian from the Canarian Agricultural Institute for Investigation. He suggested that, thanks to their pleasant nature, one of the ways to save them could be their attraction to tourists. Some residents are also keeping them in the name of tradition. For the last decade a group from Pájara, Gran Canaria, spends several days at the end of July reliving the times of their grandfathers, visiting the coast with their families and donkeys to gather fish and shell fish after the grain harvest. Capote also recommended a formalization of the breeding programme which enthusiasts have undertaken over the last few years to create one of the few wild ass groups in Europe.

Wear it well

Hats off to you! Hats with wide floppy brims are perfect for ladies with long faces

L

ooking great in headwear is all about choosing the type of hats that suit you, and one of the first things to consider is your overall shape. Petite ladies and those with small faces should avoid big hats with a large crown or brim as they can overwhelm your face and frame, but close fitting, delicate and subtle will look wonderful. Generally speaking tall women should avoid narrow, angular hats, but look great in wide brimmed ones with shorter crowns – avoiding those with high crowns, unless they particularly want to add even more height to their frame. Fuller-figured ladies and those with a larger face should avoid small hats, but are blessed with being able to carry off wide, full-brimmed, even flamboyant hats, as they balance out curvy figures perfectly. So, baring that in mind, the next thing to consider is the shape of your face.

Asymmetrical hats are perfect for round and heart-shaped faces

Long face Those with long faces look great in hats with a medium to wide brim and a short crown. Avoid high crowns as this will elongate the face, as will short brims. Floppy hats and ones with a flared brim will cover some of the forehead and balance the shape of your face nicely.

Round face If you have a round face it is best to avoid floppy hats or those with rounded crowns or small brims, but a higher crown will lengthen your face whilst angular shapes and peaked or slanted brims will help distract from facial curves. Asymmetrical hats are perfect for round faces, think bows on one side or a brim that can be fastened up leaving one side down.

Square face

There’s something about a stylish chapeau that sets off an outfit, and not just for weddings and visits to the Palace! Everyone can look good in a hat if they know the secrets. Mauve and purple hats go really well with blue eyes

The best way to wear your hat is with confidence

Sharply angled

Also, choose hats with colours or trims that bring out your eye color. Purples can look amazing with blue eyes for instance. And remember, hats don’t have to be the same colour as an outfit. A neutral beige suit can be complemented perfectly with a brown and gold hat or can be given an instant new lease of life with the addition of almost any range of bright colours. However, don’t go overboard. If your clothes have a complicated print design, team them with a nice simple hat - and a flowered hat with a floral dress is a definite no, no. When you are trying different looks play with hats to see how they sit on your head – you’ll be surprised at the difference it can make. You can tilt it to one side to create drama and interest or bring it further down on the brow to complement a larger nose for instance. But the best way to wear your hat is with confidence and a big smile!

To add softness to a square face and minimise a strong jaw choose a larger brim and a rounded crown. Feminine hats with curvy lines are perfect, as are bowler hats with a rolled brim.

If you have a face with lots of sharp angles, hats with prominent trimming, folding and plenty of curves will complement your face. Fedoras are perfect for this type of face as they show off great cheekbones and createfor a jaunty look.

Heartshaped

Right combination

Try and avoid very small brims as they will make your forehead look bigger, whilst wide brims will make your chin – the narrowest point on your face – look even narrower, so balance is the key here. Choose medium-brimmed hats with soft curves or asymmetrical designs and crowns that aren’t narrower than the width of the cheekbones.

As well as the shape of your face it is also important to choose hats that complement your skin tone. For example, black or dark colours can make pale skin look sallow, whereas a rich pink can enhance colour. However, if the outfit calls for a dark hat you can always add a sprig of bright pink or red flowers which will completely change the look. Make the plainest of hats something special with colourful accessories

Fedora hats look fabulous on ladies with sharp-angled faces and come in some wonderfully feminine colours

GOODWOOD REVIVAL MEETING 2013 From Goodwood House, stage for the recent Festival of Speed to Goodwood Airfield and Motor Circuit

T

he scene now moves forward from Goodwood House, stage for the recent Festival of Speed covered here in Island Connections, to Goodwood Airfield and Motor Circuit where the 2013, sixteenth incarnation, of the famous Revival Meeting will take place next month. The Revival Meeting is widely regarded as the world’s most authentic motor race meeting. Staged to a period theme spanning the ‘40s,’50s and ‘60s, most participants, from drivers and their support teams to the paying public, will deck themselves in the finery and costume of that era. Everyone and everything will be transported back in time to the nostalgic golden age of the post war years. My son and I have to find outfits to blend in with the vintage fashion that will be on display. Now, where did I put my pipe?

A gold-leaf Cadillac, said to have been owned by flamboyant pianist Liberace, will go on auction on September 17. The 1931 Cadillac Golfer’s Drop Head Coupé features 23.75ct gold leaf-clad bodywork, silver external door handles and 24ct gold-plated internal door handles. The gleaming embellishments are the results of a lavish three-year project carried out in the 1970s by previous owner, Jack Smith, in the USA. The gold leaf coachwork is offset by white leather upholstery and the car is powered by a 5.7 litre V8 engine, mated to a threespeed manual transmission. The guide price for this very rare Cadillac starts at around €102,000. See it at: www.baronsauctions.com.

really believe that?) which will be present in all of its various incarnations from road car to Le Mans winner, and they will be raced hard, too. There will also be an extensive tribute to the late, great, Jim Clark featuring his cars and drivers who raced against him. Hard racing there will be in abundance. The feature race for period Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin, each with 2 drivers per car, is one of the regulars at the Revival. Cars conservatively worth millions will dice wheel to wheel, and no quarter will be given, or indeed asked. Racers race, it’s what they do. Famous faces will pilot their saloon car racers from the ‘60s. Motorcycles and classic cars, without doubt the best examples in the world, will be on display. In the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy there will be intense competition for racing bikes

from the ‘60s, doubtless with their original riders giving their all. Goodwood was a Battle of Britain aerodrome, and so it is entirely fitting that there will be a flypast of period WW2 aircraft. As a ‘heavy’ lumbers overhead, there will surely be a lump in my throat. The three day event, from September 13 to 15, will be augmented by period fashion shows, an Earls Court Motor Show recreation of the 1960s, a Concours d’Elegance for post war aircraft, all the fun of the fair for younger revivalists, and last but not least, a glittering star-studded cast of famous drivers bringing their skills to the piloting of exquisite machinery. I salute them all. I’ll bring some pictures back! Look out for them in a forthcoming issue.

Opel

Smooth and sleek Opel/Vauxhall’s ground-breaking Monza Concept, featuring cuttingedge LED projection infotainment and an evolution of the Ampera’s revolutionary powertrain, is set for its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show at the end of this month. The original Monza made its premiere at the IAA back in 1977 for Opel: a large coupé with a smooth-running six-cylinder engine that was produced until 1982. Its futuristic counterpart, however, is in a different league. The sculptural surfaces of the 4.69 metre-long, four seat Monza Concept are apparently modeled after ocean waves lapping on the shore, and the flowing surfaces are dramatically underlined by the side-sills that taper off in front of the rear wheel arches - inspired by the lean physique and slim waist of a greyhound dog. Whilst the expansive doors, according to the designers, swing up like the outstretched wings of a condor. “This is the next bold step along our journey into the future” says

Mark Adams, Head of Opel/ Vauxhall Design. The roof line runs in a semicircular form like a classic

coupé’s, but then just before reaching the tailgate it sweeps slightly upwards. Though it has a height of just 1.31 metres,

there is neither loss of space in the 500 litre luggage compartment, nor constrained headroom for the passengers due to the fact that the whole cockpit structure is around 15 centimetres lower than in conventional models. “The Monza Concept represents the Opel/Vauxhall car of tomorrow,” said Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, Opel/Vauxhall CEO. “On one hand, it embodies everything that already characterises the company – precision engineering combined with innovative technologies, wrapped in captivating design. In addition, it addresses the themes that will be the developmentfocus of the next generation of Opel/Vauxhall cars: maximum connectivity and optimum efficiency.”

Range Rover

Very first hybrids Land Rover is launching its first-ever hybrid models. The world’s first premium diesel SUV hybrids, the Range Rover Hybrid and Range Rover Sport Hybrid, are promising outstanding fuel economy and significantly lower CO2 emissions whilst retaining Land Rover’s renowned capability and performance. The new Range Rover Hybrid powertrain combines Land Rover’s popular 3-litre SDV6 diesel engine with a 35kW electric motor integrated with the 8-speed ZF automatic trans-

mission. The hybrid system, including lithium ion battery pack, inverter and electric motor weighs less than 120kg.

The electric motor produces 170Nm torque to boost acceleration and drives the vehicle in EV Mode. The motor also

acts as a generator, harvesting kinetic energy through regenerative braking, charging the battery when the vehicle is slowing. To demonstrate the capabilities of the new vehicles, three Range Rover Hybrids recently embarked on an epic trip, from the home of the Range Rover brand in the UK to the residence of the parent company Tata, in Mumbai, India. This ‘Silk Trail 2013’ 16,000km expedition will visit12 countries, via some of the world’s most challenging roads, passes and trails, including part of the ancient, 6,000 kilometre, Silk Road connecting Asia with the Mediterranean.

Bonny and bright

The recent Beetle Sunshine Tour spawned a surprise winner for the most Beautiful Beach Beetle of the Year award. Fans of the round and friendly cars gather on the Baltic coast from all over Europe to join in the annual open air celebration of all things beetlely. Over 400 cars were on show this year; primped and painted and in many and varied guises, including pickup truck and race versions. However, the prize was awarded to Marthe and Magnus Schwarz from Germany for their convertible that sports a knitted robe. It apparently took the couple seven months and 40kg of wool to create the colourful jumper. There was no indication of whether the stripes made the car go faster, but the woolly jacket well may keep it warmer.

Boxing A light-hearted jab at the toughest sport By George Reed

Boxing

Coach child sex allegations Sport in the Canaries has been rocked by another child sex scandal just a few months after a well-known martial arts instructor from Las Palmas was jailed for a total of over 300 years for abusing young pupils at his school over a period of many years.

B

oxing is the hardest game, there’s no denying that, and there has been many debates about boxing’s place in society. It’s even barbaric at times, which is the reason why it is so popular with many followers of the fight game. As a former New York heavyweight once said, “If you screw up in tennis, it’s 15-love. If you screw up in boxing, it’s your arse”. (Randall Tex Cobb). The world of boxing has produced hundreds, maybe thousands, of champions in all weight divisions, many of them forgettable. Not so forgettable are the few comedians, intentional and otherwise, who should be much longer remembered for funny lines and situations. So I hope you don’t mind if, in this edition, we take a look at the lighter side of the sport. Consider Randall Tex Cobb: beaten to a pulp, bloody and battered by Larry Holmes for 15 excruciating rounds. He was more convincing as a stand-up comedian than as a fighter. Leaving the ring to try his hand in Hollywood, he ruled out any chance of a rematch against Holmes with this immortal line, “I don’t think his hands could take the abuse”. Interviewed on one occasion by a writer from a snooty arts magazine, Cobb’s answer to the question “What did you take at school?” was a classic. He replied, “Hubcaps mostly”. A somewhat more unconscious comedian was Tony Galento, nicknamed Two-Ton, who is best remembered for his rash promise, “I’ll moider da bum” before his 1939 fight against Joe Louis, the heavyweight champion of the day. Louis kayoed him in the fourth round, which was not too surprising considering that Galento’s idea of training was to relax with a stein of beer, a big cigar and a female companion in the bar of New York’s Plaza Hotel, while his sparring partners did all the road-work in Central Park. His explanation, “why should I pay dem punks all dat money and then go out in the rain and run myself?” - good question. However, he was capable of changing his lifestyle. Before an important bout, he swore off beer and pig’s knuckles and went on a monastic diet of bread, water, and vitamin pills. “In 14 days”, he said sadly, “I lost two weeks”. Forty years later, and just as fat as Galento, there was Francisco (Fainting Frankie) Vitali, whose claim to fame was that he was the worst ever fighter to come out of New York’s toughest neighbourhood, the Bronx. He was a heavyweight whose reflexes were so bad he was once run over by a car being push-started. His sense of self-preservation was so keenly honed, that his shortest fight (including the count) was 11 seconds. Legend has it that his most inglorious moment came in a club fight in Manhattan’s Little Italy, where he faced a non-combatant as scared as he was. Shutting his eyes, Frankie waded in with arms flailing and accidentally connected with the intended target, for almost the first time in his career. As his opponent’s nose split open, Frankie fainted at the sight of blood and was counted out. A regular visitor to the emergency wards of various New York hospitals, he once inspired The Daily News to print the headline “Xrays of Vitali’s head shows nothing”. On another occasion, a doctor asked him, “Have your eyes ever been checked? “No” replied the reluctant warrior, “as far as I know, they have always been brown”.

A cover up! Using two hands sees Bruce Scott bragging again

The latest scandal involves a boxer from Gran Canaria, who was arrested at the end of August in connection with allegations of indecent acts committed against young boys he has coached. The boxer, Kid Telde (real name José Santana), was detained after a number of former pupils went to police with the allegations. Police are interviewing other former pupils about the allegations and computers and other items taken from the boxer’s home have been examined in the search for evidence. The boxer has reportedly admitted in phone conversations that the offences took place a long time ago.

Opposition criticism

Cost of live TV football The cost to the public purse of live TV coverage of the Canaries’ two big football sides has been criticised by the opposition Popular Party.

The PP’s spokeswoman on media affairs, Agueda Montelongo, is demanding answers from the government on the exact amount paid by publicly-owned RTVC broadcaster for the rights to screen matches involving Tenerife and Las Palmas in the 2nd Division this season. Montelongo said that, while she recognised the popularity of football in the islands and the convenience of being able to watch games from the comfort of an armchair, the use of public money for such a purpose was “frivolous”, especially if, as rumoured, the broadcasting rights have cost €2.6 million.

Canarian memories :

Wingfly death Charity race :

Wine-themed run Tacoronte is the latest Canarian wine-producing area to organise a fun run with a difference. The town is holding a 14 kilometre run along roads and tracks through local vineyards at the end of the month and anticipates a big turnout for the day, given that the aim of the Nature Vine Run is to raise money for charity. Athletes who regularly take part in events of this type have already confirmed their participation and they are expected to include Dario Dorta, who has established a name for himself as one of the most generous contributors to deserving causes by pounding the roads. The main race on 29 September is complemented by a Kiddies Run of less than one kilometre for the under-8s.

A Spanish extreme sports enthusiast who was killed in the Alps recently had close ties to the Canaries, where he carried out some of his dangerous stunts. Adventurer and well-known TV presenter Alvaro Bultó was killed in Switzerland when he collided with a rock face after leaping from a plane on a wingsuit flying challenge. The death of the 51-year-old has shocked the adventure sports community and has led to tributes from many parts of the world, including the Canaries, where he made the headlines a few years ago with a spectacular freefall jump on Mt Teide, landing in the crater of the volcano. Back in 2005 he and his team broke the world skydiving record at the Las Canteras beach in Las Palmas.

The step up into second division football after two years in the wilderness is proving difficult for CD Tenerife. Performances have been promising at times but the lack of goals is proving costly. In fact CD Tenerife share with West Bromwich and Italian sides Bari and Padova the dubious honour of being the only teams in Europe´s first and second divisions not yet to score. But after just three matches it certainly isn’t time to panic. With many of the squad never having played at this level before, mixed with the ten new signings, it will take a while for the whole project to gel. We have to be realistic this season; the blanquiazules have the third least valued team in the league at just over €3 million. You can compare this to neighbours Las Palmas valued at €17 million or other ‘small’ clubs like Hercules, also €13 million. The only goal this season has to be survival. We have to trust in manager Cervera, the undeniable spirit amongst the players and, of course, the support of the fans.

Current leader of the Tercera Division Canarian group of 20 teams from all over the Islands is Villa Santa Brígida with 6 points.

Tenerife enjoyed the majority of chances in their first match back in the Heliodoro after last season´s promotion. The match started in a calm way, perhaps due to the stifling 30˚C heat. After twenty minutes or so the blanquiazules stepped up a gear and lively Cristo Martin tested the Hercules keeper with a fierce shot. Minutes before half-time the away outfit were reduced to 10 men as ex-Man. City player Assulin kicked out inexplicably at Carlos Ruiz. Assulin´s crazy assault was severely reprimanded by his own team captain and he was unceremoniously pushed off the pitch. The match restarted with plenty of pressure by Tenerife but they lacked clear cut chances. Due to the injury

of main striker Aridane, Borja Perez, snapped up from Scottish club Kilmarnock, made his debut but looked off pace as Hercules defended deep and packed the area. Plenty of corners were forced by the blanquiazules (16 in total) but apart from a few speculative efforts from outside the box, Tenerife never really looked like scoring. In the closing minutes, with Tenerife going all out to find a goal, Hercules broke away and almost sneaked a cheeky victory but Aragoneses made a great save.

CD Mirandes 2 CD Tenerife 0 Despite the result, and it may seem a bit odd, but this was Tenerife´s best performance of the season so far. Better to play badly and win? Most probably, but if the blanquiazules can just turn their good build-up play

into goals then victories on their travels will soon follow. Having said that the team clearly lack goal scoring power and it was concerning the way they were overrun after conceding the first goal on 73 minutes. The second half return of injured Aridane who notched 27 goals last season did not make much difference and it was clear he isn’t 100 per cent fit yet. After dominating the first half, the blanquiazules fell away in the last twenty minutes in the packed Anduva Stadium close to Burgos in Northern Spain. Mujika scored the opening goal for Mirandes as the home team took control. With CD Tenerife in all out attack attempting to find the elusive equaliser, Mirandes broke away and secured the win with their second goal on 92 minutes. It was a harsh defeat for the blanquiazules. But they know they will need to pick up points on their away days as they cannot rely solely on the “Heliodoro factor”.

World-record Welsh transfer

Bale in!

Welshman Gareth Bale recently became the most expensive player in football history when he joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur for a world record fee of around €100 million. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy purportedly said the club had no intention of selling Bale, but he was so keen to go to Madrid they felt they had little choice. The now 24-year-old Bale The move to Madrid is a dream come true for Bale began his career with playing for Real Madrid as his own personal goal and now, after six years at Tottenham, he says that the move to Spain, “is a dream come true”.

Down, but definitely not out T

he appointment of president Paco Santamaría, already well known in the sporting field, has added to the optimism that CD Marino are exuding, despite being relegated at the end of last season. As Mr Santamaría says, “CD Marino may have taken a knock, but everyone can hold their heads up high.” And rightly so – during the second half of last season the

team showed the level of play and unity they are truly capable of, and will hopefully continue. Santamaría has been a member of the club for many years and welcomes this opportunity to take an active role, considering himself extra lucky to be surrounded by people as dedicated as himself. He and his team seem to have their plan well worked out and have undergone a comprehensive reorganisation of the club. From there the next steps are the

promotion of the CD Marino brand, the expansion of relations with other entities and the training and development of the many talented players the islands are blessed with. To be able to succeed Santamaría believes it is important to learn from the determination and hard work of the founders of CD Marino – the fishermen who back in the 1930s created the very first football club in the south of Tenerife: a noble approach indeed. And nowadays they also have a very

useful asset in the Antonio Domínguez stadium which already provides a focal point for the local community. From ensuring the stadium is accessible to people with disabilities, to making sure everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, can get involved, the organisers want to actively encourage participation at every level – including from foreign residents and visitors. The club now has their own public relations officer in the shape of Martin Astley: British

by birth, but resident here for many years. His work involves liaison with professional clubs abroad as well as the international community in the Islands. Support is growing and one British-led fan club has already been created (see CD Marinistas on Facebook). The message from the club is, “everyone is welcome”. There is a feeling of enthusiasm and confidence in the air lately which could take CD Marino far. Let’s hope so.
