he CanaLink submarine fibre optic cable which links Europe with the Canary Islands arrived on the coast of the ITER installation in Granadilla, Tenerife on May 16, and was ceremoniously winched onto dry land from the ship which has laid it beneath the sea from Cádiz in mainland Spain. The arrival of this submarine cable forms one of the fundamental phases of the ALiX project which is led by the Cabildo of Tenerife and has the objective of increasing the competitivity of Tenerife in the telecommunications world. While the winching operation was being completed, those present learned about the project which has involved some 2,500kms of submarine cable and another 2,500kms on terra firma. This connection will effectively turn the Canary Islands into the southern gateway of Europe and the nerve centre of communications between Africa, Europe and South America. Cabildo president Ricardo Melchior told those present, “we have needed experience, knowledge, Canarian government support, and a great team led by Carlos Alonso (island councillor for economy and competitivity), who have all fought to achieve this objective”. He also thanked the Granadilla council for their participation and encouragement, and ONO, as well as

Orange and Vodafone who have also supported this project. He continued, “thanks to all these, today we have achieved one of the most important objectives of this century”, and added, “the CanaLink cable will be switched on in two months’ time, and everyone in Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma will be able to connect with a new world as far as quality, price and broadband speed are concerned”. The CanaLink cable consists of four pairs of fibre optics, each pair having 128 wavelengths. Each of these wavelengths has a 10Gbit, with the result that 75 million high quality conversations can be held simultaneously, which is 500,000 times the capacity of the old cable which was installed in 1965. It will be able to support services and applications appropriate for state of the art data centres and investigation centre networks, and be able to link space telescopes in La Palma with the Spanish investigation and university telecommunications networks. It is hoped that with CanaLink in operation, other telecommunications companies will be eager to set up bases in Tenerife, and that this in turn will lead to economic growth, increased employment and cheaper, higher quality communications services for everyone.

ince the morning of Friday May 13th Tenerife has been in the international headlines for all the wrong reasons. A 60 year old British woman, Jennifer Mills-Westley was murdered, brutally and senselessly murdered, in a manner that was both shocking and extremely macabre. In the days that have followed the story has taken two distinct paths. Family, friends and neighbours of the murdered woman have been followed and phoned by the press looking for statements, and on the other side the media have begun investigating why this happened, if there can be a ‘why’ for such an irrational act, could it have been avoided, and what will happen to the man accused of the crime? The why will, it would seem, take a lot of time and the talents of qualified psychiatrists to unravel. As we go to press there are reports that the accused, 28-year-old Bulgarian Deyen Valentinov Deyanov was, over Christmas and into January of this year, in a mental institution in Cheshire when he was detained during a visit to family members. Upon his release it would seem he returned to Tenerife, though in fact police here cannot say with certainty when he first arrived in Tenerife as he was ‘undocumented’. His first brush with the police wasn’t until January of this year. He was subsequently committed for a brief period to a psychiatric unit here in Tenerife

Los Cristianos murder

Could it have been avoided? following an aggressive attack, but released in February. According to witnesses he was known for his verbal aggression in the Los Cristianos area, and just a few days before the murder of Jennifer MillsWestley a warrant was issued for his arrest and detention by court Nº 4 in Arona, accused of further aggressive behaviour. It is unlikely it was considered ‘extremely urgent’ and the man wasn’t located by police before the fateful day. So what does the judicial future hold for Deyen Valentinov Deyanov? We are told that he has been moved from Tenerife

II prison to a psychiatric unit at La Candelaria hospital. But what his short and long term legal future holds is still a bit unclear. In recent weeks and prior to this case there was speculation surrounding the release of a Briton who has been in prison on remand on suspicion of murdering his girlfriend in Los Cristianos in 2007. It is believed that he is being released due to the fact that he has been found unfit to stand trial. If the mental state of the accused in the murder of Jennifer Mills-Westley is also deemed to be unstable, as all

the current anecdotal evidence would seem to suggest, could a similar fate await? It would be unfair and untrue to say this couldn’t happen elsewhere – of course it could. But how many cases of this nature will it take for a review of the judicial procedures surrounding mental instability to take place and perhaps the establishment of a pan-European alert system when someone is committed for violent behaviour to an institution but then moves country. Could such checks have saved a life? Who knows, but let’s hope the question won’t need to be asked again soon.

Presidential candidates, Soria, Rivero and Pérez. Local Elections >>

The state of the parties This was the state of the parties after the 2007 local elections in the regional parliament, cabildos and assorted councils.

Following the elections many parties entered pacts, not all of which have lasted the full four years, with other individual politicians also causing changes in local power balances by changing parties mid-term.

Facts ::

How to vote (EU citizens)

Coalition on the cards?

Rivero tight-lipped 1. on pacts

W

ith the prospect of another coalition increasingly likely after the regional elections on 22 May, Canarian president Paulino Rivero is playing his cards close to his chest and giving no clues as to who he might turn to in the event that his party fails to secure a majority. The latest polls show that while the conservative Popular Party may win most votes, albeit just slightly, the Canarian Coalition (CC) and socialists (PSOE) will take more seats than them in Parliament, with none of the three winning enough to form a government. The sour relations at national level between the PP and PSOE, the country’s two biggest parties, rules out a pact between them, leaving Rivero’s party likely to retain the presidency. However, Rivero has given no clues as to who he would prefer to work with and does not want to have his hands tied just yet. “The only thing certain is that after 22 May comes 23 May and that is as far as I am thinking at present. When all the votes are counted we will look at things” said the president. As usual in Canarian politics, a deal at regional government level would almost inevitably mean similar deals in big towns and cities, with power-sharing pacts replicated at council level, particularly in Tenerife.

You should have received a voting card in your name which will also indicate where your voting centre is located. However, even without the card you are still perfectly entitled to vote if you are registered on the electoral census.

2.

On election day, May 22nd, take some form of original photo identification (passport, driver’s licence, etc) with you to the centre.

3.

When your name is checked you will be handed an envelope and a number of papers which are the lists of candidates for each particular party.

Don’t mark the paper or envelope in any way. Simply choose the party/list you wish to vote for, place it in the envelope, and place that in the ballot box on the electoral table.

second Clash of the Titans film will be different in many ways. “There will be more attention paid to characters and the director wants a more realistic and grounded approach from the first movie, which was more of a fantasy than this will be. This one will be more relatable and emotional”. When the first movie was filmed here, it was not known how much, and how fast, technology would progress, and it was planned, shot and edited without knowing that the end result would be 3D. Iwanyk says, “this time we know. There are differences in production, effects, schedule and style. The 3D on Clash II is going to be fantastic!” Main actors

Not only do the producers of this movie love the scenery and production-friendly atmosphere the islands can offer, but they are also employing plenty of people in Tenerife. Just under 400 local people are involved. A Canarian production company, Furia de Titanes II AIE, is the co-producer of the film and responsible for production in Tenerife and other film-related services, and local company Sur-Film Production & Services are helping out on the island.

Tenerife Cabildo Vice President and Councillor for Tourism, José Manuel Bermúdez pointed out how important this filming is for the island, and said that it, “implies an incredible promotion of our potential as a natural set”. He pointed out that there are not many other locations in the world with such a variety of scenery, and quipped, “… we couldn’t wait another 40+ years for a sequel!” Clash of the Titans II has

involved a bigger local and international crew than the last one, and much more equipment has been brought here this time although to help keep within budget, lots of local materials and equipment have been used too. After all, it takes a lot to create a world which doesn’t exist. It was an easy decision for Warner Bros. to return to Tenerife to film the sequel. The crew described it as a great experience the first time around, but they felt that they hadn’t

taken full advantage of the environment and spectacular scenery here. They are used to working on claustrophobic film sets, and find working here great. After a hard day’s filming beneath the clear blue sky and sun, they also really appreciate their hotels, the pool, the ocean, and the beautiful scenery, and producer Basil Iwanyk commented that, “the crew and cast have noticeably perked up since we’ve been here”. He also told us that this

Sam Worthington (Perseo) and Rosamund Pike (Andromeda) are actually here in Tenerife for the filming, but it has not been necessary for either Liam Neeson or Ralph Fiennes to come here. Clash of the Titans II looks as though it is going to be much more exciting than the first movie, and is scheduled to be released in the US on March 30th 2012, so we can expect it to arrive in our cinemas during April.

The group have also been looking into the possibility of a London Heathrow – South Tenerife link. This is quite likely, given the recent merge between Iberia and British Airways. According to BermĂşdez, “this would be an attractive offer for British clients with higher spending potential as it would offer first class on board, appealing to those who are in search of a more exclusive holiday, a tourist market of particular interest to the island, which we have seen grow in recent yearsâ€?.

he Red Cross have just launched a visual campaign aimed at increasing awareness among employers and in work places of the need for equality of treatment and fairness for those who have arrived here from another countr y. While many ex-pats living here in the Canar y Islands may tend to think that the term ‘immigrant’ doesn’t apply to them, they (we) are just as

much immigrants as anyone who has arrived from Africa, whether their form of transport was boat, plane or small dangerous cayuco. Anyone who is legally living here is entitled to be treated equally and with exactly the same amount of respect as anyone else. At the press conference, to launch the campaign, which sees some of Spain’s top humourists donate their time and talent to the Red Cross in cartoons and contributions, one

question to the representative from the Cabildo, EfraĂ­n Medina, was in relation to recent statements by the regional president Paulino Rivero, on jobs for Canarians. Medina said the reference was to all those legally living in the Canar y Islands. The Canarian president of the Red Cross Alejo Trujillo, spoke of the many “vulnerableâ€? groups in our society, women, those of different colours and races, those who felt isolated due to language difficulties. He referred to the need for potential employers to look

Quality products Gofio is a Canarian traditional food that was handed down from the Guanches. It consists of toasted cereals ground to a powder and the locals will have it in warm milk with or without grated hard cheese, sprinkled over one of the popular potages, mixed to a paste with stock or sugar and honey or in

any of a wide range of other popular local recipes. It would not be unusual for a Canarian or in fact ex-pat mum who has lived here for a while to add a spoonful or two to a baby’s bottle! The Tenerife Rural organisation has decided that there needs to be a quality control over gofio. Any gofio which carries the Tenerife Rural brand is made

properly at each applicant for a job and judge them on their merits, not the colour of their skin or their surname, adding that many immigrants who arrive here had qualifications which would benefit and add levels of expertise and professionalism to many Canarian companies.

It’s an initiative that started to differentiate the quality of farming products and to offer consumers a quality guarantee of specific traditional characteristics backed by adequate controls. All products under the Tenerife Rural brand can be found at La Dispensa www.productosdetenerife.info/.

Jobs news welcome

Cabildo president Ricardo Melchior has welcomed the employment data for March which showed that employment had risen by almost three per cent in comparison with the same period last year. The figures show that in Tenerife 10,000 jobs were created in the last 12 months and there have also been increased expectations in terms of finding work on the island. The numbers of those on the dole also dropped by one point in the same time period, and by three points throughout the Canaries.

Measles

Worst outbreak for a decade The Canary Islands are suffering the worst outbreak of measles in the last decade. The 25 confirmed cases in the last month have been concentrated in Tenerife. It is thought that the most probable cause is the enormous contact which the island maintains with the population from the United Kingdom where there is a line of thinking which is against the idea of vaccinating against the virus. This has, to some extent, extended to Germany and began when a series of articles were published in the 90s which linked measles vaccinations with the appearance of autism and other behavioural problems. These fears have proved to be false, but despite that, and the availability of vaccinations across Europe, people are still against vaccinating their children and it is thought

that tourists from the UK and Germany are bringing measles to the islands. Since the plan to eradicate measles from the archipelago in the year 2000, there has not been such a large outbreak. Nowadays, there are only two sections of the population susceptible to the disease, and amongst whom it can circulate: those aged between 25 and 40 years, for whom vaccination was not available in their infancy, and babies under the age of 15 months.

full house of experts and interested parties greeted the latest tourism summit, The Canaries – Our future as a destination, organised by the long established, local Spanish daily, Diario de Avisos. Hosted by the newspaper’s editor, Juan Manuel Pardellas, the topics covered were, the challenge of air transport, cruise tourism, the relationship between quality and price, inte-

rior tourism, successful cases and the renovation of hotels and tourism zones. As happens in many of this kind of event, much of what was said had been said before, but a lot was well worth repeating or underlining and there were one or two startling comments and revelations. Juan Manuel Pardellas stated that the Canaries continues to be a great tourism potential worldwide, that the Diario de

Avisos believes in tourism and that, “we will come out of this strengthened” a sentiment that was echoed by Tenerife’s island council President, Ricardo Melchior as he inaugurated the summit. He underlined that, “every 40 new tourists create a new job…so this has to be the first priority for all sectors of our society, to improve tourist numbers”. Ironically the head of the first debate on air transport, Canarian President Paulino

Rivero, was late because Los Rodeos airport was shut due to heavy mist. Just a few years ago, the lowcost airline boom was seen as the saviour of the tourism industry here, but now some of the companies such as Ryanair are being criticised by people like the DG of Santa Cruz’s Chamber of Commerce, Vicente Dorta, as “speculators” who bring “bread today, hunger tomorrow”. He also warned that we should be lobbying now against the imposition of the CO2 tax, due in 2013, which will increase flight prices by €30 each way to and from the Islands. José Barreiro of Ashotel’s managing group, called for a flat rate for flights from the Spanish peninsula and Portugal – areas he called, “our natural market,” adding, “It is inadmissible that a flight from Madrid is more expensive that from the UK”. Questions were asked as to why cruise tourists spend an average of €100 in Barcelona and Madeira, but only €40 here, there’s obviously room for improvement. Cruise business was worth an estimated €70 million to the islands in 2010, of which half was direct passenger spending. All in all a successful and interesting day which will be covered in full on June 5th in the Diario de Avisos for Spanish readers.

Yeremi link to British paedophiles? Four years on…

T

 he mother of missing Gran Canaria boy Yeremi Vargas believes that two British paedophiles currently in jail in Scotland may have something to with her son’s disappearance. Charles O’Neill and William Lauchlan, who were jailed for 30 years and 26 years respectively last year for carrying out sex

attacks on children and murdering a mum who threatened to expose them, were living in Gran Canaria around the time Yeremi went missing from outside his grandmother’s home in Vecindario. The dangerous pair were in the news earlier in May when it was revealed for the first time that they had been quizzed over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from

the Algar ve in the summer of 2007. Police sources say O’Neill and Lauchlan were touring Spain and Portugal at the time and their travels took them also to Gran Canaria, where they worked as cleaners and painters of holiday villas and apartments. According to reports in the UK media, Yeremi’s mother Ithaysa has repeatedly asked

frontation with the neighbour a short time before but went out later in the evening to walk the dog alone. Police say he was struck in the head several times with the butt of a shotgun but the actual cause of death was gunshot wounds to the face. Neighbours say the alleged culprit, who was arrested immediately at the scene, is known for his psychological problems and lived alone.

La Palma visit backfires A visit to La Palma by a group of German travel agents and travel writers last summer appears to have backfired on the island’s tourism authorities. The 30 or so sector representatives spent several days exploring various locations and experiencing local rural tourism possibilities with a view to recommending a stay for their compatriots. However, a poll completed by the visitors criticises the standard of hotel accommodation heavily and urges the

authorities to do something to upgrade facilities if they hope to continue to attract German holidaymakers. While the hotels scored very poorly in the survey, the island’s attractiveness for visitors was highlighted, particularly its multiple hiking, mountain biking and stargazing possibilities. Some local holiday businesses say the survey was deliberately skewed to protect the interests of the thriving Germanrun rural tourism sector, which offers cottages as alternatives to hotel accommodation.

A rare species of shark sighted several times near El Hierro has merited a feature in National Geographic.

Up to a hundred pensioners in Gran Canaria say they have been cheated out of several months of their pensions by an unscrupulous adviser who offered to arrange all the paperwork needed for the payments with the Department of Social Security.

The killing of Osama Bin Laden by US Special Forces a few weeks ago has been followed by the revelation that one of his most trusted couriers lived in the Canaries for a time.

ithout wanting to scare off potential visitors, bearing in mind the tiny island’s lucrative diving business, the Cabildo stresses that the presence of the solrayo shark is important for the scientific community and the growing interest is already reflected in the article written by specialist writer Eva van den Berg in the May edition of NG. The shark, first sighted in the waters off El Hierro in 2006, has been seen on a number of occasions since and it is thought a small stable population may be living in the area. The Cabildo says the vulnerable species, unknown to science until 1999, deserves further study of aspects such as its breeding habits and behaviour and the article will help raise awareness of its conservation importance.

A court in Las Palmas has taken over the case and formal charges of fraud and obtaining money by deception are being prepared.

Bin Laden’s Canarian link A

ccording to the regional media, Syrian Mohammed Bahaiba, also known as Abu Khaled, lived in the port district of Las Palmas for four years at the end of the 1990s before joining Bin Laden’s global Jihad against the United States and the West. Spanish intelligence sources say Bahaiba had subsequently acted as courier for the Al Qaeda leader, carrying messages and instructions from Afghanistan to European cells of the terror group. warrant was issued for his arrest by Spain’s anti-terrorist court in 2001 but he has never been located. Bahaiba’s role in Al Qaeda has emerged in several detailed media investigations into how Bin Laden, who refused to use a mobile phone in order to avoid detection by the US, managed to communicate with his operatives throughout the world.

Accompanied by her husband Roland, former Chaplain Rev Colin Fowler and a long time friend Fr. Malcolm Exley, Jean went to Westminster Abbey in London on Maundy Thursday to receive her gift from Queen Elizabeth II.

As reported here extensively, ‘Piedad’ (not her real name) was given up as a baby because her mother could not look after her. She moved from foster home to foster home until she was taken in by a La Orotava family, who applied to formally adopt her. However, her real mother turned up again and fought a successful legal battle to have her returned to her care.

Santa Cruz

The larger city centre shops, including well known fashion outlets such as Zara and Mango, have been banned from sevenday trading but will now be able to open their doors on Sundays thanks to formal recognition of the city centre as a major tourist zone. The measure will not extend to the Meridiano and El Corte Inglés shopping

centres, however, due to the strict boundaries imposed on the area considered as being important for tourism. Although welcomed by many, the local traders’ association says it should have been consulted on the plans due to the impact they will have on smaller shops, which do not have the resources to compete with their bigger neighbours and open every day. A spokesman said that almost three quarters of small shops said they would be unable to open on Sundays due to staffing limitations.

Pool death

‘TV arrived before ambulance’ The grandson of an elderly man who died at a public swimming pool in La Cuesta near La Laguna is demanding answers from the pool administrators and the health authorities over the tragedy.

Nereido Díaz, aged 87, died from cardiorespiratory failure as he used the hydromassage section of the complex. His grandson Omar, who was present at the time, says other users and staff failed to react in time and could have saved him. “ I was watching him from the gym across the way and saw him struggling to get out and close to collapsing.

I banged the plate glass window frantically to attract the attention of around 15 pool users but nobody reacted, not even the lifeguard, so I ran from the gym to the poolside. I had to jump in myself to pull him out” said Omar in an interview in the La Opinión paper. Tragically, the elderly man failed to recover despite resuscitation attempts. “What is unforgiveable is that by the time an ambulance arrived 25 minutes later, a TV crew was already filming the incident, which shows how quickly the emergency services responded” added the furious grandson.

Arona nuns appeal B

ack in 2002 Father Keith Jeffries, the Chaplain of The Anglican Church in Pueblo Canario, San Eugenio discovered that there was an order of Franciscan Nuns doing excellent community work with the poor and needy in the Arona area of South Tenerife. He made contact with them and the first couple of substantial donations came from the congregation of San Eugenio and the children, staff, parents and friends of the English Educational Centre on Golf del Sur after their annual Harvest Festival in the San

Blas Church. Six or seven car loads of produce plus the cash collections and a very generous donation from a property developer parent of one of the children in the school was presented to the nuns, who were delighted with the gifts which enabled them to extend their outreach work and further develop their crèche facilities.Father Keith Gordon, the current Anglican Chaplain and the Chaplaincy Council have continued this generous support since the first donation. During these years many donations of money, food parcels and clothing

have been made. However during their last church visit members of the congregation were dismayed to hear that the store cupboards are now bare, and that parents are going without food to ensure that their children are fed. So, any donations of dried or tinned food would be greatly appreciated and the volunteers at the St. Francis Chaplaincy will get it to Vilaflor and Arona regularly.

flooding risks

New research by a La Laguna University academic reveals that Tenerife, and Santa Cruz in particular, are totally unprepared for heavy rain and the risk of serious flooding increases by the year. Victoria Marzol says that nature should be ignored at its peril here because although the island’s capital receives relatively little rainfall, constant building work has clogged natural outlets for runoff and water accumulates in specific areas, which flood easily with intense rain. The results of the research were presented recently to a Spanish conference on climate.

Recovery in tourism A

The results for the first two months of this year have made the municipality the top tourist destination in Tenerife and the second in the Canaries, according to tourism councillor Miguel Ángel Santos. He says that Costa Adeje has experienced the highest growth in Tenerife, of 9.2 per cent above a year earlier, and above the average rate of 6.8 per cent, and that, “The five star hotel sector continues to attract the highest number of tourists”, whilst non-hotel accommodation showed much more reserved growth, of 3.4 per cent. Santos pointed out that, “the conflicts in Tunisia and Egypt have contributed to this, but what is certain is that before these conflicts, our main markets such as Britain and Germany were already giving good results”. New flight routes from France and Italy have created a growth

Santos insisted, “it is essential that our destination has a good aerial connection network... without this none of the markets can grow”. By country, the UK showed growth of around four per cent, Germany five per cent and the Nordic countries around 35 per cent. Regarding Spanish tourists, Santos commented, “the economic crisis has not

and give him the motivation to return rather than choose another destination. “We should take advantage of this fillip to work more on training and on gaining the loyalty of our clients, who in some cases have been diverted from other cheaper destinations.

As we go to press, the public prosecutor, María Farnés, has asked for a total of 160 years for the killers allegedly involved in a brutal attack in Callao Salvaje six years ago. The four defendants stand accused of murdering two individuals and injuring a third in a bloody score settling between rival gangs in 2005. Despite the survivor’s denial to give a statement (“for fear” claimed the prosecution as he is at the moment in a prison in Huelva) qualms cast by the defence on the injured person’s statement and doubts of the legality of the telephone tappings, the proof, in terms of fingerprints, blood samples and DNA found in the area of the attack for three out of the four, would seem to be overwhelming. One of the deceased was hit several times and then thrown into the Tigoigo ravine where he died of impact injuries, the second was beaten and then stabbed and the survivor after receiving several blows managed to escape into the ravine. Each of the accused faces two charges of murder for which the prosecutor is asking 15 years and one charge of attempted murder for which she has requested a further 10 years.

Ring road collapse

Shortly before 9am on the morning of May 6th residents of the village of Piedra Hincada, Guía de Isora, heard a loud crash from the nearby ravine (barranco); one of the huge structures being used to build a suspension bridge over the ravine had broken and collapsed.

new tax rates and allowances

Switzerland about to start taxing UK owned bank accounts

By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

T

he UK government is about to sign a landmark agreement with Switzerland which will oblige Swiss banks to tax interest payments made to UK taxpayers. The days of hiding money in Switzerland are long over and legitimate approved tax planning arrangements are the only way for ward.

Last October the UK and Swiss governments signed a joint declaration to work towards taxing UK owned Swiss bank accounts. The head of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), Dave Hartnett, has now told tax experts that the terms of the new agreement will be announced in May. The Treasury estimates that UK taxpayers have £125 billion

hidden in Swiss banks and that it will earn between £3 billion and £6 billion over the next few years as a result of the deal. The government has not yet commented on the deal other than to say that it should be confirmed soon but an article in The Sunday Times included a list of terms supplied by tax advisers familiar with the discussions. It is expected that Swiss banks and other financial institutions will start to deduct a withholding tax from interest and dividend payments. There was speculation that the tax rate would be between 25 per cent and 35 per cent, but on 2nd May The Financial Times reported that, according to a source familiar with the negotiations, the withholding tax rate will be 50 per cent, though we do not have official confirmation yet. While this withholding tax will apply from the start date, it is reported that investors will have to pay a separate one-off levy in recognition of past unpaid taxes. As part of the agreement,

for example, was reportedly able to investigate 3,000 Swiss bank accounts and by the end of January had collected around €300 million as a result. The only way to lower your tax bill is through professional guidance and legitimate tax planning arrangements. For reassurance that you are not paying more tax than you need to and that your tax planning is compliant, speak to a tax and wealth manager like Blevins Franks.

Swiss banks will start to oblige all British clients to supply evidence that their bank accounts comply with the UK’s tax system. The money collected in withholding taxes will be collectively handed over to the UK Treasury and will not include any details of who has paid them. Under the agreement, howev-

er, Swiss banks will be obliged to hand over financial details on individual accounts in situations where HMRC makes a specific request and can demonstrate that a Swiss bank has been used to evade taxes. At the end of last year HMRC arrested two people failing to disclose Swiss bank accounts. It is believed the UK got the

information from data stolen by an ex-employee of the bank in question which was handed over to the French authorities. Since EU countries now share tax information data, UK taxpayers included on the list were passed on to the UK tax authorities. Other countries benefited from the stolen data. Spain,

Spanair and TAM airlines have come to an agreement which should widen the area of operations of both.

T

he routes that will be affected are between Spain and Brazil in particular and between Madrid and five Spanish cities, including Barcelona. TAM will offer domestic flights run by Spanair from Madrid to Barcelona, Bilbao, Málaga, Tenerife North and Santiago de Compostela and there will be an interlink with flights between Madrid and Sao Paolo.

C

lients will be able to leave their luggage in any of the Spanish destinations to be taken all the way through to Brazil without the need to recover it in Madrid and check in again.

his represents an increase of 15.6 per cent over the previous year. The group is the owner of the offshoot Bankia which they expect to launch on the stock exchange in the near future.

Business in Brief

Unfair practices The British Embassy in Madrid has recently received a number of letters from British companies concerning European City Guide SL, a company based in Valencia that publishes service guides. European City Guide sends mailshots encouraging companies to register for their services, and such companies can later receive unexpected invoices. Businesses and traders are urged to be alert to European City Guide and to read its mailshots extremely carefully, including all the small print, before signing. The European Consumer Centre, which is based in Brussels and funded by the European Commission, has provided advice on companies such as European City Guide, which can be seen on the European Commission website (http://www.eccbelgium.be).

An extract from the European Consumer Centre’s web site follows:

Q

:“I am a trader and I recently received a letter from a publisher of a professional guide who asked me to complete a form. Afterwards I received an invoice. The company told me that I had subscribed to their service. Do I have to pay?”

A

: “The ECC has received many complaints about companies that use these unfair practices: European City Guide, Construct Data, Dad Gmbh, Nova Channel, Registre Internet Belge, GPV, Guide de la ville, … At the bottom of the form which the trader has to complete, it says in tiny, nearly invisible letters that by sending back the document you are agreeing to enter into a contract for a duration of three years for

an amount between €700 and €1,000 per year. “If you receive such a letter, do not send the form back. If you have already done so, dispute the invoice. Send a registered letter to the company in which you complain about the misleading nature of the form and demand cancellation of the invoice and the contract. “Check whether the General Directorate for Control and Mediation (the former Economic Inspectorate) has already received complaints about this company. If this is the case, the General Directorate for Control and Mediation can tell you if there is already a case pending in the courts. If so, you can add your complaint. Let the company know the steps you have taken and that you are awaiting the results of the judge’s investigation.”

Northern airport

Sound proofing Over a million euros has been added to the over €13 million available for soundproofing homes and schools in the Tenerife North airport radius. The various administrations involved at all levels have just agreed to add €1,225,116 to sums already in the pipeline for soundproofing projects. If your home is in the area des-

ignated by the plan you may be able to receive a grant to soundproof your home. Three schools and 211 homes have already been soundproofed and a further 149 homes and two public buildings covered by the plan are undergoing work at the moment. There are a total of 697 homes included in the census with the right to a grant which means that 337 are yet to make any kind

of application. The majority are in La Laguna with just 15 in Tegueste. The soundproofing is to offset acoustic nuisance that is expected when plans to extend the northern airport are concluded. If you believe that you may have a right to help soundproof your home contact the Oficina de Gestión de Planes de Aislamiento Acústico on 91 590 31 70 (Spanish speakers only).

Wages

Index linked T

he days when salaries were linked to the cost of living index look to be numbered.

The president of the Spanish Business People’s Confederation (CEOE), Juan Rosell, has put forward and defended their proposal to link salaries to production. Many of the collective bargaining agreements signed two, three and four years ago are out of date, he claims, because the situation has changed so radically. Rosell claims that Germany has come out of the crisis quicker because they “reacted more quickly” and decided to adjust the wages to the economic reality and not to signed agreements. His proposal is that salaries should be linked to production, an idea which also has the backing of the President of the Business People’s Circle, Wage increased to be linked to production in future? Claudio Boada. The background to all this is that the format of the collective bargaining agreements is currently being legislatively reassessed and discussed, although Rosell claims that they are not asking for a reform in favour of the business community, but of the economy in general.

Communication

Skype buyout

If you are one of the many who communicate with your friends and family abroad via Skype, you may be interested to know that a takeover may be imminent. The multinational, Microsoft, are interested in buying out the company and have offered a whacking $8,500 million. With this operation Microsoft hope to bring in new web users and reduce Google’s publicity stronghold.

Anniversary

Coca-cola

Celebrations took place in the installations of CocaCola recently to celebrate their 125th anniversary. The drink that started in a chemist’s shop in Atlanta as a pick-me-up has become the most valuable brand in the world according to Interbrand. CocaCola arrived in the Canaries in 1925 when a representative of the company came here looking for companies

to produce it locally. The challenge was taken up by the son of an owner of a fizzy drinks company called El Perfection and by 1927, the company was producing 400 bottles (80 litres) an hour.

Chinese

NH hotel group

The Chinese group HNA has just bought 20 per cent of the NH Hotels chain. HNA are known in the airline, travel agency and hotel sector and are now the second largest shareholder in this group which holds hotels on many of the Canary Islands. The total outlay has been calculated at €431.5 million. The companies are talking about a combined society to develop the hotel business in China, the fastest growing market in the world. NH believes that the best ‘in’ they could have is hand in hand with a local associate. Shares in NH rose 18 per cent on the back of the news.

Utilities

Electricity

Endesa, the parent company of our local Unelco, has asked to increase the price of supply by up to 10 per cent over the next two years, despite results announced for 2010, which have been called the best in their history. The request was made during a shareholders meeting, by a company representative, Andrea Brentan whilst total income for 2010 was confirmed at €31,177 million, 20 per cent more than the previous year and, according to the company president, Borja Prado, the best financial figures in the company’s history.

Economy

Spanish outlook

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has downgraded its forecast for the Spanish economy. The OECD, which is based in Paris, is an international economic organisation founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade and currently comprises 34 countries. They believe the poor unemployment figures for the first quarter, the slow growth in gross domestic product and the weak industrial results push back the recovery boundary. The level of backsliding has been reflected in practically the whole of the Eurozone based on growth, industrial output, construction, employment and business and customer confidence amongst other factors, all of which would seem to indicate that the possibilities for economic improvement are more pessimistic than a few months ago.

In addition visitors should present their European Health Insurance Card for emergency health care at a Social Security Hospital. Private hospitals will not accept the EHIC and will ask you to pay for your treatment or provide adequate insurance. Please make sure you are aware whether or not the service you need provides care under the Social Security system, before you sign to accept anything. Residents in Spain will be expected to show their Health Card (tarjeta sanitaria) to gain access to full health care at Social Security hospitals. If you are not eligible for a Social Security Health Card, you must ensure you have adequate private insurance.

overcome yourself

Dear Dr. De La Flor

T

his week I want to share with you a quote from Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw: “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances.The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them!” Yes, we all have our issues, our weaknesses, our miseries, our faults and mistakes. But it’s equally true that we all have abundant resources inside ourselves to change. If today was a cloudy day, make a small resolution for tomorrow, remind yourself of the many occasions where you have overcome yourself and accomplished your goals.

I’m trying to quit smoking and I would like to hear your advice. Cheers, Oscar

Dear Oscar, First of all, congratulations! Your health is a treasure and you are a treasure for your family, so I applaud and encourage your decision. Many smokers think that lighting up helps them relax. They’re fooling themselves. Exper ts say nicotine withdrawal makes people feel jittery and anxious, which smokers often confuse with feeling stressed. Lighting up makes them feel better, not because cigarettes ease stress but because it’s delivering the next dose of nicotine. Breaking free of nicotine addiction is stressful. Stress is one of the leading reasons why people falter in their efforts to quit. Stress releases a brain chemical called epinephrine, which inter feres with the ability to focus and think clearly. When you’re trying to quit smoking, that can make it hard to stay focused on the goal. I hope some of the following strategies can help you get through the tough times without being overwhelmed by stress! Cut yourself plenty of slack. Don’t be hard on yourself while you’re quitting. Kicking the habit is tough enough. Recognise in advance that you’ll experience stress. Understand that your temper may be short and that you may feel discouraged. Focus and enjoy the fight, and not just the results. By the way, statistically speaking most smokers have to try several times before they succeed.

Most smokers have to try several times before they succeed in quitting

Tackle short-term problems in advance. If you can easily resolve any nagging shortterm stresses, do it before you quit. Fix that leaky faucet. Clean up the clutter that’s preventing you from parking your car in the garage… Set long-term worries aside for now. The first few weeks of quitting are the hardest. Focus on the here and now, congratulate yourself for the fight at the end of ever y single day! Learn to recognise signs of stress. The sooner you deal with stress, the less likely it will be able to derail your efforts to quit. Focus more on your hobbies or try to be more ‘physical’ during the day so that you can naturally burn some of that extra adrenalin. Many studies show that physical activity can help ease stress and anxiety. Exercise even appears to boost brain chemicals associated with feelings of well-being. Plan to pamper yourself. Enjoy a war m shower. Luxuriate in the bathtub. Beyond helping you let off

steam, life’s simple pleasures can remind you of why you want to quit in the first place, strengthening your resolve to stick with it. Share your goals with a friend. Before you quit, make a list of the people you can turn to for suppor t and a friendly conversation. Turn to them when you’re beginning to feel stressed. When we admit our weaknesses we are much stronger! It’s totally normal to be overwhelmed during the first days of quitting. The effects of nicotine withdrawal get weaker every day that you don’t smoke. Ever y time you resist lighting up, you’re one step closer to a smokefree life, and your lungs are literally in a party mood. For me, you are already a success for trying to put up a good fight! Best wishes from a fan of yours. Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. /Family Doctor. Holds cer tificates in coaching, nutrition and medical exercise from Berkeley University and

Resolution: Let’s try to do something together for the next two weeks. I invite you to grab a post-it every night and write down two small goals for the following day. Be concrete and try to fight to death for that goal. In a short period of time, you’ll realise that areas you thought were insurmountable weren’t, and areas of weakness can be transformed by us creating a positive circumstance. Being proactive is feasible, and getting better and happier too. Talk to you in a couple of weeks.

The Big three – part 1

P

rotein What are the big three? I am talking about the three macro nutrients - carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. In this article I will explain the basics of protein.

What are proteins?

The less legs the better

Proteins are organic molecules made up of amino acids – the building blocks of life. These amino acids are joined together by chemical bonds and then folded in different ways to create three-dimensional structures that are important to our body’s functioning. There are two main categories of amino acids in the body. First, we’ve got essential amino acids – those that the body can’t manufacture, and thus we must consume in our diets. Some amino acids are conditionally essential, which means that our bodies can’t always make as much as we need (for example, when we’re under stress). Next we’ve got nonessential amino acids – those that the body can usually make for itself.

This is an easy rule that I picked up from the book of a training colleague. To explain what it means just visualise a fish. How many legs? None! Perfect source of protein. Chicken? Two legs! Very good source! Beef? Four legs! OK source. If you want to try a spider, feel free to do so but on your own head be it.

Sources With some exceptions we can say that everything that comes from an animal contains protein. Examples would include beef, chicken, turkey, cheese, salmon, tuna and so on. But of course we have some vegetarian choices like soya, tofu or tempeh. If you are not a strict vegetarian I would recommend you to go for animal based protein sources as the human body finds them easier to retain.

Why is it important to get enough protein? During digestion, the body breaks down the protein we eat into individual amino acids. Just imagine you find an old house in Tenerife made of “cantos blancos”. You are interested in using these bricks to build a wall in your garden. So first you have to break down the house to separate the building blocks before you can use them. That is what your body does as well. These amino acids get added into the plasma pool of amino acids. This pool is a storage reserve of amino acids that circulate in the blood. The amino acid pool in the bloodstream readily trades with the amino acids and proteins in our cells, provides a supply of amino acids as needed, and is continuously replenished. So when ever amino acids are needed they are available. Since our bodies need proteins and amino acids to produce important molecules in our body – like enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, and antibodies – without an

Don’t get ripped off on your roof! By : Alby Fernsworth, Ferns Roofing

T

hink you have the ability to repair your roof by yourself and save a lot of money in the process? Don’t do it. This may not be a wise decision. Instead you should hire a professional roofer to do the job.

You must be watchful when choosing a roofer as there are stories of contractors who scam people out of their cash. They either never complete the job or take the money upfront and disappear. Or they do complete the job, but with poor craftsmanship. Therefore, it is vital to find a roofer who is reputable and allows you to have control over the roofing job. The first thing is to make sure the person you will hire is a certified professional. They will be taking a large chunk out of your bank account so you need to do a thorough background check. Ask for references and contact those references. A professional will easily give you a list of references and will most likely volunteer

this information from the get go. Look for a roofing service that has a good history in your area. Look for their ads, their local registration number, ask for a list of vendors and credit references. If they are unwilling to supply any of this information then think twice before hiring them. Take note of the equipment they use on roofing jobs. What is the status of equipment? Is it old? Do they have a great amount of equipment in their truck? Check to see if their truck has their company name or logo on it. If it does note the professional appearance of it. Do they employ the use of air nailers and other modern tools? If their equipment looks like it’s deteriorating, beware. They may not necessarily be out to scam you, but the odds are leaning in that favuor. Another really important thing to consider when deciding upon the contractor is the skill level of their crew. Do they use true roof mechanics or are they employing temps or laborers? Has the roofer told you what type of materials

they are going to use when working on your roof? Be sure that they don’t dump cheap materials on you. This can happen easily because there are several different grades of shingles and plywood. If you end up with cheap materials you will no doubt have to make repairs in the next year or two. Therefore, you need to specific the brands and types of materials you want them to use. You may want to take the lowest bid, but the lowest bid most often does not equal the best deal. Roofers who do not have experience or people who are going to take your money and run give low bid estimates. You definitely can’t get something for nothing. Look for competitive bids that are within 10 per cent of each other. In conclusion, you should verify that you have all the details written down. Don’t sign a contract until you fully understand what you are getting into regarding the contract. It is common practice for honest contractors to provide service after the sale so they can make you a loyal customer in the long run. The key is to never work through an expensive job without a contract. If you keep these tips in mind when choosing a roofer you will have a new roof and be a satisfied customer.

If in doubt consult your local town hall’s OMIC (consumer) office or a solicitor.

verage rents increased by 1.1 per cent in April. This is less than the allowed for increase of the Retail Price Index which was at 3.8 per cent year on year and is part of a continuing trend whereby rentals are increasing at a rate below that of inflation. The highest increases were in the Basque Country at 1.5 per cent, Catalonia at 1.4 per cent, Andalusia at 1.3 per cent, Galicia at 1.3 per cent and the Balearics at

1.2 per cent. The Canaries, along with Aragón, Cantabria, Castilla y León and Valencia were in line with the national average and below the line were Castilla-La Mancha at one per cent, Asturias and Ceuta at 0.9 per cent, Madrid at 0.8 per cent, La Rioja at 0.5 per cent, Melilla at 0.4 per cent and Extremadura and Murcia at 0.2 per cent. The only reduction was in Navarre which saw a fall of 0.5 per cent. Upkeep costs of property rose 2.5 per cent on a year by year figure and 0.2 per cent more than March.

Buying your home

In our continuing series on Community rules we explain how votes are calculated to pass new statutes or gain permission to do something in the communal areas.

For instance, in a block where there are eight apartments and five owners, one of the owners having four apartments, there must be at least a numerical majority of owners (three in this case), but these three owners would also have to have, between them, a majority of participating quotes. In the case where the majority of owners don’t have a majority of participating quotes, and the decision is highly important, they may need to go to court and, in most cases, the judge will rule in favour of the majority of owners. There are a number of different votes needed to carry out certain activities on communities. Unanimity is now only applicable when there is a need for the statutes to be modified or the approval of new ones. However, it is possible to install or cease to offer certain services with only 3/5 of the total proprietors’ backing who, in turn represent 3/5 parts from the participation quota. These services cover elevators, porter, front desk, surveillance,

or other common or general interest services, even when they mean the modification of the title deed. The 3/5 vote also comes into play when leasing the common elements which have not been assigned a specific use. With regards to carr ying out work to help disabled people a simple majority is needed. However, if there are any absent proprietors at the meeting they have 30 natural days to make it be known what their decision is regard the work. If the owner does not respond within the time limit it is declared that they voted favourably. The installation of common infrastructures for the access of telecommunications, or to accede to solar energy requires only a third of the votes, which in turn represent, a third of the participating quota. However, anyone who specifically votes against implementing these infrastructures will not be required to contribute financially towards them whatsoever. But if at a later date they wish to take advantage of the infrastructures they are permitted to do so as long as they pay their share of the costs.

All other decisions require a simple majority vote, which, in turn represents, most of the quota.

Mortgage alternatives ith bank finance increasW ingly difficult to obtain, the alternatives to mortgages are growing in popularity.

Unemployment, the loss of the possibility to write off your home loan interest against your tax and difficult credit conditions imposed by the banks are making themselves felt in the housing market and the average property now takes 10 months to sell, in the Balearics and Cantabria up to 13 months. As a result, alternative acquisition methods such as bartering and rent-to-buy are now gathering popularity. Bartering can also be applied to home purchases and in Madrid this kind of deal has increased by 15 per cent over the last 12 months. The traditional websites for real estate are now including this method in their web pages. It could be the perfect option for example for someone who is changing city for employment reasons or families who need to trade up or down in the size of their home. The barterers pay the difference in the value of the properties in cash and can take over each other’s mortgages if there is an

amount outstanding. Costs are low which also makes it attractive. Rent to buy is another option which is increasing in importance and popularity. You have the choice and the chance to buy the property within two, three or four years of starting your rental contract. In 2010, this kind of contract grew by 4.5

per cent with €1,800 million in contract values. The advantages are that it may be easier to obtain financing, but you don’t have to find a deposit. The amount you have paid in rent is normally discounted off the final purchase price of the property and again the costs are lower than with a traditional mortgage.

Housing market

Sales down rban house purchases U were down almost 12 per cent in March after two months of increases.

There were 33,106 urban property sales registered in March, a drop of 11.9 per cent over 2010. Sales of private properties dropped by 16.1 per cent, but sales of reduced price ‘protected’ homes rose by 23.4 per cent. Total sales

were registered at 168,433, 0.3 per cent more than in 2010 and 2.1 per cent more than the previous month. Average sales per 100,000 inhabitants across the country were 88 with the highest proportion registered in Cantabria at 114. On the same scale, La Rioja measured 107, Murcia 106, Valencia 105, Andalusia 101, Madrid 93, Asturias and Castilla La Mancha

88. Below the national average were the Basque Country at 86, the Canaries at 85, Balearics at 84, Castilla y León at 82, Extremadura at 80, Navarre at 75, Galicia at 70, Catalonia at 68, Aragón at 67, Melilla at 60 and Ceuta at 55. The highest number of registered properties changed hands in Andalusia at 6,658, followed by Madrid, 4,810, Valencia, 4,324 and Catalonia, 4,084.

Our home form has been magnificent. We are undefeated in Europe. “You have to put all the criticism to one side because I have to be realistic when I look at my team and ask, ‘Am I satisfied?’ Those players have given me everything.”

Can we have elections every year? Dear Editor

N

ever before have we felt so wanted, so needed, so cared for. For the last month we have been listened to, invited to events with bouncy castles and live music, we have had people ask us what was missing in our lives and how they could help fill the gaps. Parks ar e being built, roads repaired, trees planted, pavements cleaned, it is quite delightful and makes these islands even pleasanter. But for how long. As I write May 22nd looms, the date of the

local elections, and few would accuse me of being too cynical if I suggest that all the attention we poor voters are being paid has more than a little to do with those elections. It would be lovely to think that come May 23rd, when the votes are counted, when some mayors are returned to their offices are others not, when new councillors begin to take note of their success, that they would decide to continue to treat us with the level of attention we have enjoyed in recent weeks and months. We’re here all the time, not just when you need our votes. Don’t forget about us till 2015. Yours Maria Garcia Bourke, Arona

season we can make it up again. For more information check out the Armada Sur facebook page.

Aries: (March 21 - April 20)

Tune into your neighbours and friends as the messages you receive about how to care for the area are not clearly understood. Add in the comfort of a patio barbecue or go camping to truly appreciate the nurturing essence fire brings.

Dear Editor

Taurus: (April 20 - May 20)

Please learn and know what is your ‘waking mind’ talking versus your ‘instinctive body mind’. Continue to seek out healing methods which can be applied to the confusion in your career. Clarity is your goal.

F

ans of CD Tenerife are gutted by the drop to second division B, but like all true fans won’t abandon the club or the game.



Gemini: (May 21 - June 20)

Happy birthday to the twins! May you have a wonderful day and a fully charged and empowered year to come. Continue to monitor those aspects of yourself which are motivated by jealousy due to the finances of others.

One of the things that we feel is crucial, if at all possible, is that Nino stays with the club – he has been one of the few inspiring players this season, giving it his all when others have been sitting back.



Cancer: (June 21 - July 22)

Your driving energy to understand the personal sense of self can be understood at this time through the filters of making your environment nurturing and self awareness through partnership. Just don’t become a leech to your loved ones.

We know that the club will not be able to afford his wages, but fans from all over the island are looking for ways to help, and one idea is that the fans themselves would organise fund raising activities and donate themselves, so pay half of his wages if needs be.



Leo: (July 23 - August 22)

Prepare yourself for an amazing contact between Saturn and Chiron which will unite your Leo self with the opposite sign of Aquarius. It will be exact in about a month. Watch out for messages about how you hold yourself back from, or in fear of being passionate about life.

The club is suffering, so are we, but if we pull together and support the team through next

Virgo: (August 23 - September 22)

Note that when the Sun enters Gemini it is always time for your career to shine. Remember that if you are motivated by being jealous of what you see in your community, it is not going to stick around in your life once it arrives.



Libra: (September 23 - October 22)

Continue to expand your direction at work, making sure you do so with the best and highest intention. Prepare for a change in your understanding of what is expected from you. If you are still operating on the knowledge and judgement of your childhood, it is time to pitch it out and be an adult.

A review and revision of what your work and home world are like come to your awareness over the next month. You may find new balance between them, which is critical to your health.



Sagittarius: (November 22 - December 21)

It is time for relationships to take centre stage as the Sun’s annual pass into your house of relationships indicates. You may find it easier to communicate as well as know what to say to make them shine.



Capricorn: (December 22 - January 19)

You are probably feeling the beginnings of an urgency to heal yourself of long standing traumas. These may be physical or concepts you’ve inherited from your family. Choose a different path or concept by asking for the new spirit to introduce itself to you.



Aquarius: (January 20 - February 18)

If you have an onerous task to dig through, remember to give yourself the gift of time off to play. Something intellectually different will help refresh you. Your ruler, Uranus, is being infused by the optimism of Jupiter. Make sure you do not go too crazy with finances and extravagant travel.



Pisces: (February 19 - March 20)

Pay attention to the energy shift of the Sun into Gemini…or any planet moving into that sign. It is always a good time for you to hear your soul’s voice directing your path towards the future. Prepare for insights for healing your body/mind connection.

It is 35m2, with one bedroom, a complete bathroom and living/dining room and bathroom, and is located in an historical building near the Teatro Real.

Making the announcement, the Housing Minister, Beatriz Corredor, claimed that, “we lack trustworthy statistics about rentals”.

Transform those terraces and patios

Plants and pots A

large proportion of people here in the Canaries tend to live in apartments. Not that there is anything wrong with that! Unfortunately though, what it does mean is a lack of gardening space.

Garden area here is often limited to patios and terraces - not that it should be seen as a negative. There are many things you can do to transform those bare terraces into a secluded haven of flowers, shrubs and whatever else

might take your fancy! Try adding a trellis to the walls. Not only will this give you an extended gardening area instantly, but also provide a wonderful backdrop of colour. Do bear in mind the size of pot you use – climbing plants need space for their roots to grow. Plants in containers can look stunning. There is a huge variety of pots and containers to choose from these days, but don’t get too carried away. Limit yourself to no more than two different styles or colour of containers. Fill them with

he first 7star hotel to be built in Spain has just been granted its building licence. The hotel is to be built in Peñón del Lobo, between Marina del Este and Cotobro in Amuñécar and construction is expected to be started within the next six months. The owners are Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts and the new hotel will be marketed under their Angsana brand. Phase one of the hotel, consisting of the main hotel and 55 residential villas with private pools, is scheduled to open in 2013 and not counting the construction work it will create, directly or indirectly, 600 jobs.

espite the crisis, the international furniture chain, Ikea, will be investing €2,000 million in the countr y over the next few years. Mikael Ohlsson, the general manager of the company, announced that they are to double the number of stores and create 20,000 new jobs between now and the end of 2015. “We are making the most of the poor situation to grow,” he declared. Whilst others were fighting for survival here in 2010, Ikea upped their sales by 8.2 per cent.

plants and you have an instant garden with low maintenance. Just remember that potted plants do need regular watering. If you lead a hectic lifestyle, or you’re forgetful, it might be a good idea to install a timed watering system. Water features and raised ponds are other options to look at. These both give height and an added interest to a patio area. Experiment with different textures, foliage and colour to create an ambience that you feel happy and relaxed with.

Material and technology: The supporting elements and the canopy frame are made of aluminum profiles. How to operate: You open and close the Sombrano with the removable hand crank. The crank mechanism is self-locking. By means of the tilt rod you can incline the canopy on both sides up to 54°, in 18° steps. Thanks to its rotating ball-bearing base, the Sombrano can be rotated by 360°. Winter storage: Store it in its protective cover. Wind safety • 2 years guarantee. Accessories included: Protective cover with zip and rod. Available in different sizes. Available in more than 30 colors. 100% swiss manufacturing. It can be fixed to the wall without base.

Hanging baskets, dripping with colourful plants, is yet another way of utilising space to the full advantage. Don’t forget, scent can play a big part in creating a relaxing atmosphere – choose a few plants for their scent! Be adventurous!And don’t forget, flowers and shrubs are not the only things you can plant. Fruit, vegetables or herbs can look great. Peppers, tomatoes, kiwis and lots more beside, can all be grown in containers. Never be afraid to experiment – it’s the best way to learn.

News in Brief ::

adequate protein intake, our bodies can’t function well at all. Protein helps replace worn out cells, transports various substances throughout the body, and aids in growth and repair. Consuming protein can also increase levels of the hormone glucagon, and glucagon can help to control body fat.

Going green

How much protein do you need?

Benetton has lots of plans for becoming greener, including organic cotton garments and eco-friendly shopping bags. The latest is liquid wood hangers, they are 100 per cent biodegradable and recyclable, meaning there will be six hundred tons less plastic in the environment this year.

How much protein you need depends on a few factors, but one of the most important is your activity level. The basic recommendation for protein intake is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body mass in untrained, generally healthy adults. For instance, a 68 kg person would consume around 54 grams a day. However, this amount is only to prevent protein deficiency. It’s not necessarily optimal, particularly for people such as athletes who train regularly and hard. For people doing high intensity training, protein needs might go up to about 1.4-2.0 g/kg of body mass. Our hypothetical 68 kg person would thus need about 95-135 g of protein per day. These suggested protein intakes are what’s necessary for basic protein synthesis (in other words, the creation of new proteins from individual building blocks). The most we need to consume throughout the day for protein synthesis probably isn’t more than 1.4 – 2.0 g/kg. Important to know is as well that we can not just eat half a cow and be served with protein for the next half year. Our body needs to constantly refill the amino acids pool. The perfect timing would be a ration of protein every 2-4 hours. So try to involve protein in each meal.

A proper pet park! La Laguna

The council recently opened the first park designed for dogs

I

n a pioneer initiative in the Canaries, La Laguna council has created a recreation area for dogs in Parque San Benito. This exclusive space has been tested by local canines over the last few weeks, and the results have been so good that four more are to be installed, in Ofra, Geneto, La Cuesta and La Verdellada. Dogs can run and play in these areas, without any risk, and without annoying anyone. These canine areas are fenced in and signposted. As well as having enough space for dogs to be able to run around, there are also pieces of tree trunks placed like obstacles, so that they can play and jump, plus drinking

water for the dogs and bags for the collection of doggie poo. In La Laguna, there are around 30,500 registered dogs, making this municipality the one with the most pets per inhabitant, and although dog owners are obliged to clear up their own dog’s poo,

many do not. Alongside the canine recreation area project, the local council has started a publicity campaign involving the placing of 10,000 stickers in the streets and parks of various neighbourhoods which inform the public that failure to clear up after their pet will attract a fine of up to €300.

The display of manual sheep shearing outside the Adeje cultural centre was part of a week long expo dedicated to wool. Inside the centre the exhibition space was given over to spinning wheels (potential Sleeping Beauties were taking note), yarns, baskets of balls of delightfully coloured wool and pictures from past to present of wool in the region. Back to the main event. There were three shearers in total and about 10 wooly customers about to lose their locks.

er animals were getting from their individual cutters. The kids enjoyed it much more than the adults, and given half the chance they would have happily picked up a pair of shears to see if they could make the cut. Luckily that wasn’t an option.

Adios Milou

Pet owners will be sad to say ‘Adios’ to Faby and Oscar, owners of Milou, the excellent pet boutique in Callao Salvaje, who are departing for pastures new! However we should always look for the silver lining in any cloud, and there is one small plus here. Faby has told Island Connections that she is selling off all stock in the shop, which has some great original pet gifts and toys, with just about everything in the shop reduced by 40-50 per cent. Milou will close its doors at the end of May so you still have time to pop in and pick up a pet bargain.

Wingate Juniors

Easter donation to K9

On the early morning of Friday 29th April, when most of the world, including Wingate Juniors, were preparing to celebrate the wedding of Britain’s Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the president of K9, Mrs Clinton-Lesley, arrived at Wingate School to receive a € 2,450 cheque! Throughout the school year, various activities have taken place to raise the money for the K9 dog sanctuary, which the Wingate Juniors have supported faithfully for the past twelve years. The children were all very excited at the prospect of handing over the cheque for such a marvellous sum to K9. All in all, a great day was had by everyone concerned. The post-wedding ‘Street Party’ was a great success, despite the fact that the wind was blowing a gale, lifting party hats and plastic plates of food into the air.

Advice from the ‘experts’! oices from the ITV comedy series Benidorm are behind a new series of radio adverts designed to help British citizens on all aspects of living in Spain.

The adverts will be heard on English language radio stations across Spain, including the Canary Islands, over the coming months, as part of a campaign to help British residents find useful advice on living in Spain, and to encourage them to integrate better into local Spanish communities. Sheila Reid, who plays the formidable Madge Harvey; Derren Litten, creator and writer of Benidorm; and Keith Barron, who played Benidorm’s deputy mayor (and also starred as David Pearce in the 1980s sitcom Duty Free about Brits living in Spain) are the actors behind a series of three new radio commercials based around every day scenarios of British residents. In one commercial, a couple returning to the UK for their daughter’s wedding discover at the airport that one of their

The campaign highlights what local British Consulates say are some of the commonest issues facing Brits in Spain. Britons are warned to check their passports are valid, and to ensure they keep contact details up to date so that help can be found if they are involved in accidents or hospitalised. A second big issue is Brits who fail to register on the Padrón, and who may later discover they don’t qualify for healthcare or social services when they get older. The adverts will be played on English-speaking radio stations as public service commercials during advertising breaks.

charity event is being organised for The Childrens Eye Cancer Trust by that woman whose energy never seems to run out, Kay Bradford. Some of you may know her seven year old daughter, Maisy who was born with a cancer called Retinoblastoma. This brave little girl has had tumors in both eyes and when she was younger had to have one eye removed and replaced with a false eye. Following that she stoically endured six months of chemotherapy to kill the remaining tumors. Mum Kay spends the little time she has between working and minding Maisy and her two brothers organising charity events (for K9 and other local charities as well as the cancer fund). Her next venture will be at James Brasserie and Bar in Island Village and she is currently looking for anyone who could donate raffle prizes and auction prizes. The event could also do with some singers who could belt out a few tunes free and gratis, and a compere who would be happy to donate some time.

T

José Ramón Andrés Puerta

Cooking’s oscar won by Spaniard The Spanish chef, known simply as José Andrés in America has walked off with the best chef of the year award from the James Beard foundation.

José Andrés, chef, author, TV personality and now best chef of the year

The prize could be said to be the equivalent of the Oscar of Gastronomy, but it is by no means the first award to have been given to this young and talented entrepreneur. He beat Gray Danko, Suzanne Goin, Paul Kahan and Charles Phan in the final phase of the competition in New York. He entered catering college at 15 years of age and served for a while in the famous El Bulli restaurant under Ferrán Adriá. He and his partners currently have six restaurants in the United States and are opening two more. In 2010, he worked with Adriá to offer a course on physics in cookery at Harvard. His work in restaurants over there has undoubtedly contributed to bringing the popularity of tapas to the fore.

The President of the Spanish Academy, Rafael Ansón, commented, “Spain today has all the influence in the world of gastronomy and we are going to help the Chinese with our know-how”. China has a thousand year old tradition of two kinds of cooking, popular and regional, which tends to be very simple and is based on rice and vegetables, and imperial which these days isn’t used because of the diversity of the ingredients needed or the complexity of its preparation. Ansón claims that the popular version of

Tandoori treats and the best in Indian cuisine

O

ne of the main problems is, and will always be, the geography of the islands. The steep sided hills make the use of machinery practically impossible, so the work is very labour intensive which makes the production uneconomical.

and transpor t, that need is still greater. With the crisis, some land has gone back into cultivation. The easy pickings in construction and the service industry are no longer available and whilst the work is back breaking, it is better than having to beg to feed your family once the state aid packs in.

Chinese cookery available abroad is similar to comparing Tex Mex food to real Mexican cooking – cheap and poor quality, so one of the objectives of the agreement will be to promote the creativity, the quality of prime materials and the development of vanguard cookery but Chinese style, such as that led at the moment by the Spaniard Ferran Adriá. Under the agreement, Spain, which has tipped France off the top gastronomic spot these last few years as the culinary Mecca, will promote their best products in China, starting with olive oil. “We don’t want them to copy the Spanish cuisine, but that each country develops its own creativity and that if they have real artists in the kitchen, that they will become media stars just as so many Spaniards are,” said Ansón.

Hello everyone

I’ve rather an upsetting story to tell you all this week.

O

ne of the island’s entertainers is very poorly. Carol Vedmore is in her early fifties and for many years was the resident entertainer at The Pirámides Hotel in Playa de Las Americas. She’s always been slim, hardly ever drank, smoked only the occasional cigarette, and was a keen sportswoman. She and her husband, compere Eliot Owen, were keen tenpin bowlers and played in the leagues at the Superbowl in Fañabe. Eliot was the compere at The Corner Bar in Parque de la Paz for many years. Towards the end of last year, Carol and Elliot were suffering from stress as both were out of work together for the first time, since normally one would have a job even if the other didn’t. Imagine their shock when early in January Carol was in the garden and suddenly keeled over. An ambulance was called immediately, and by sheer good fortune, she was taken to the hospital in Las Américas within the hour. This hour is known as the ‘magic hour’ because Carol had suffered a stroke. If help is not given within that vital hour, then permanent infirmity or even death is likely. After emergency treatment here in the south, Carol was taken to Candelaria hospital in the north of the island, where four doctors worked on her. Her speech was minimal, her right eye, mouth, arm and leg were all badly affected. Once out of immediate danger, she was allowed home, but couldn’t talk, walk or use her right arm and hand. She had to be taken to Candelaria every day for rehabilitation for several weeks until a place could be found in the south. I saw Carol today, and was impressed by her determination to improve. Her eye and mouth have only minimal damage now, and she hopes in the near future she will look normal. Her speech is improving, and she can now walk, although she has to drag her right foot slightly to manage. Her right arm however will take much longer to improve. She suffers extreme pain when trying to move it, yet bravely persists in trying to make the movements her ex-

cellent carers have shown her at the physiotherapy centre. I had to laugh when they both made fun of her speech. A week or two ago, she asked Eliot to hang out the “shopping”, and later told him to take the “cushion” for a walk. Thankfully the dog was taken on the lead, not the cushion. On the phone, she needs to take her time when anyone calls, and can get her words muddled still, and sometimes she even has to give up when her tongue won’t obey her thoughts. But I was so impressed by her bravery, and so very touched by the care her husband is giving her. It seems that high cholesterol had caused a blockage of the carotid artery, thus causing her stroke. We, the entertainers here in Tenerife, have always tried to give back to the island that has given us a living over the years, by doing as many charity and benefit shows as we can. Carol and Eliot have done their share too whenever possible. But now it is one of our own who is in trouble. For many years, Eliot was the compere at the Corner Bar, but could do with another job, or at least some relief or sickness cover. And perhaps some of our artistes could arrange and appear at a benefit for the family? If anyone has work for Eliot, the number to ring is 634 320 283. But bear in mind that he must take Carol for her treatment every afternoon between 4.30 and 6.30 pm. If anyone would like to chat to Carol, she’d love to hear from you, but be patient, and be prepared to hear her giggle when she can’t get out what she wants to say. Anyone wishing to contact me can ring me on 616 110 930, or email me on katykennedy@ telefonica.net I do so hope some of you can help. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially of each other.

Business Insurance >>

Liberty Seguros

Make it your business to remain protected B

Most business owners ensure that they have basic coverage to comply with the laws in Spain – i.e. insurance for accidents that occur in the workplace and material damage following a fire - but owners often forget that other situations may arise that are not included in basic obligatory insurance policies. To give a few examples, consider an electrical fault in a restaurant that causes a freezer to defrost producing wastage for an establishment; or a roof in a bar that collapses whilst undergoing refurbishments or damages caused by vandalism. Situations such as these would not be covered by basic insurance, meaning that the business owner would have to find the money out of his or her own pocket to resolve the situation. It is for this reason

that leading expat insurance

usiness owners are accustomed to taking risks, but one factor that is often overlooked is commercial insurance, which should be part of one’s overall business planning.

company, Liberty Seguros, has launched a new product – not only for proprietors

of establishments, but also for leaseholders – in the food and hospitality industry here in Spain. Amongst other features of this policy, this product protects commercial premises from damages caused to furniture, machines and electronic equipment, as well as stock and merchandise. It also protects the business owner in the case that any damage occurs whilst undergoing refurbishments and supplementary

costs arising when obtaining additional licences or permits. This policy is also in place to assist in the event of fire or theft, and also covers for detrimental acts caused by the disloyal conduct of employees. What’s more, in the case of bars and restaurants, additional civil liability is included for those with terraces and/or children’s play areas. Director of Liberty Seguros’ Home and Multi-Risk Insurance product, Joan Ramon Miró explained: “We fully understand the risks that business owners come across in these types of

industries and it is for this reason that we have created this very flexible policy so that we can cover the needs of each and every one of our clients.” As with all of Liberty Seguros insurance products, this policy allows for the inclusion of additional covers to ensure that all aspects of one’s livelihood are sufficiently protected. Each business requires specific coverage that is tailored to its industry needs, and Liberty Seguros ensures that all eventualities are anticipated in advance by assisting its clients to plan a roadmap for their financial future.

r Chanut, one of my teeth is on the point of falling out and will need to be replaced by an implant. How long will the process take? time needed for the regeneraA tooth has two parts. The crown, on top, and the root, which is embedded in the tooth socket in the jaw bone. If the bone is stable the tooth is stable. Think of the tooth location as a room with four walls. Only when the four walls are well built and in place can you place something securely inside. Same thing goes for teeth, to the time the tooth is securely in place and the swelling has gone down. From the initial placing of the prosthesis to final revision we are talking about three months. Obviously though, if one of the ‘walls’ isn’t steady or firm, that has to be rebuilt first. The

tion and integration of the implant into the mouth depends on the quality of the surrounding bone, but in general will take between three and six months to complete. If there are two or three ‘walls’ to repair it may mean that the complete integration of the implant into the jaw bone cannot be carried out in just one step. In this instance the bone may have to be rebuilt, and only then can the implant be inserted and finally the denture attached. After each step of the process there is a waiting period during which the patient is monitored. In this instance we are talking about a possible time frame of nine months from start to fin-

Big Yellow Taxi

The new generation Nissan Micra

T

he Nissan Micra is a popular city car, and the new generation is even easier to drive. It now has a reduced turning circle of 4.65m, the optional Nissan Connect navigation system which gives automatic internet updates of traffic conditions, automatic map zoom and voice instructions, and optional Park Assist which lets you know if there is sufficient space to park. The new Nissan Micra is also quieter and more relaxing to drive. There are nine colours to choose from, and you can personalise your Micra by choosing leather seats, 15inch wheels, an intelligent key system so you don’t even have to take your key out

of your pocket or bag, and a panoramic roof. There are four trim levels, Visia, Acenta, Tekna and the top of the range Tekna Premium. As you would expect, as standard you get folding rear seats, central locking, power steering and electric front windows, plus a three year guarantee. The new Nissan Micra is now safer than ever, with stability control, ESP and ABS as standard, and six airbags to protect you and your passengers. More efficient and environmentally friendly, the new Nissan Micra has an aerodynamic roof, lightweight design, and incredibly efficient 3-cylinder engines: the 1.2litre 79CV petrol, the manual version only emitting 115 g/km of carbon dioxide, and the automatic 125g/km. Coming soon is the new

Micra Dig-S with a supercharger which is likely to blow away all its rivals with emissions of just 95g/km – one of the lowest in the world today. This is an innovative engine for low emissions, excellent economy and performance with diesel-beating economy, petrol engine power and refinement, and at an exceptionally low cost.

The Dig-S engine is a direct injection unit with a supercharger − hence the car’s name: Direct Injection Gasoline-Supercharger. It delivers sparkling performance, frugal economy and exceptionally low emissions. It has been designed to meet and exceed everyday driving demands and is the ideal partner for the Micra. Full of technical innovation, the Dig-S engine uses the Miller cycle and direct

The Nissan NV200 has been selected as New York City’s taxi of tomorrow, starting in late 2013, and the company has been selected as exclusive provider of the future taxi fleet in a selection process which lasted over two years.

he Nissan NV200 taxi will be produced in Mexico at Cuernavaca. It will be a modified version of the compact commercial vehicle currently available in markets including Japan, Europe and China. As part of the programme, Nissan also will work with the City and taxi owners on a pilot programme to study the use of zero-emission, electric vehicles as taxis.

Electric vehicles petrol injection to raise the compression ratio to 13:1 for greater combustion efficiency and a supercharger for instant throttle response and added power. As well as delivering ultra low emissions, the lightweight, low-friction 1,198cc three-cylinder unit produces the power expected from a conventional 1.5-litre fourcylinder engine. The results are spectacular. The Dig-S engine produces 72kW (98PS), while emissions are 95g/km for the manual version and

115 g/km for the CVT. The maximum speed is 112mph (manual version) and combined cycle fuel economy for the manual Visia version is 68.9mpg. Further gains are made with advanced engine management systems with Start/Stop and energy regeneration. The Dig-S made its debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March, and should be available during the summer. For more information, go to www.nissan.es

The incentives programme for buying electric vehicles, which allows for a maximum subsidy of €6,000 per vehicle (or a maximum of 25 per cent of the purchase price), began on May 10th following publication in the Boletin Oficial del Estado (BOE), and counts with total funds of €72 million.

A

ccording to the BOE, vehicles qualifying for subsidies are cars, small vans, buses and coaches, motorcycles and quadbikes, all with various restrictions as to the number of seats and total weight. Applications can be made through vehicle dealers who have joined the scheme and will be dealt with in strict order of receipt until November 30th.

Cabrera tribute Sir Henry left a unique to Seve

Boxing

By George Reed

Golf Taekwondo

The late great Ballesteros at Buenavista golf, a course he designed himself

legacy

The s-shaped bunker on the course

or those of us of a certain age, Sir Henry Cooper, who was just two days short of his 77th birthday when he passed away on April 30th, was a national treasure.

Over the years various stories have been told of the goings on in Clay’s corner between that 4th and 5th round and the involvement of Clay’s famous trainer Angelo Dundee and Clay’s split glove which gave him time to recover. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and chatting over a drink with the legendary trainer on a couple of occasions. Angelo has stated that before the fight as Clay was warming up he noticed a small split along the seam of one of his gloves and thinking it may come in handy during the fight he told Clay to keep his hands down for the first couple of rounds so that the ref wouldn’t notice. During the rest period after Clay had been knocked down, and he was slumped on his stool like a sack of potatoes looking like he was out of it, Angelo stuck his finger in the split to make it bigger and to buy time he yelled at the referee to come over and examine the glove demanding a new pair. He was told after a while that there was no second pair of gloves to be found but after that short time Clay was back to life, so Angelo told the ref not to worry as they would use the ones he still had on. The ruse worked and when Cooper had his left eye badly cut in the next round, the fight was stopped in Clay’s favour. Sir Henry Cooper is so far the only boxer to receive a knighthood and was as much a national icon as a sporting hero. British boxing will be a far sadder place for his passing. *For full story see www.islandconnections.eu

“Seve loved coming to the Canaries and I first saw him when I was about six or seven, at a tournament in Maspalomas. Watching him marked me for life, he was so great. He invented modern-day golf with his risk-

taking on the course”, said Cabrera. The Gran Canaria golfer described as one of his greatest ever pleasures the time when, aged just 17, he was paired with Seve at a Pro-Am tournament in the El Cortijo Club in Las Palmas. “It was awesome to be with the master and learn from him” he added. Cabrera has no doubt that the current standing of golf in the world would not have been possible without Ballesteros. The Director of the Buenavista

Golf Course, which was designed by Seve and opened in 2003 told Island Connections that he was a real fighter, “not just on the golf course but in his private life as we saw when he battled his illness”. Martina added that Seve himself described Buenavista as one of the best courses he ever designed, which offers golfers a game of strategy as opposed to distance. The bunker on the 10th hole is shaped in an S honouring the man who was one of Spain’s most loved sporting figures.

Tournament hit

a Palma’s most celebrated female athlete Rosana Simón showed she is still a force to be reckoned with in taekwondo with a bronze medal in the world championships in Korea. Simón missed out on a final in the +72 kilo division against arch-rival Anne Caroline Graffe (France) when she lost heavily to home idol Sae Bom An (0-8) in her semi-final. However, she returns with a deserved bronze to add to the golds won at the world championships two years ago and the European championships last year.

Hotel Sheraton La Caleta

The Hotel Sheraton La Caleta’s first golf tournament was an overwhelming success with over one hundred players taking part.

During the day, participants enjoyed the catering services of the hotel in the VIP zone at the Costa Adeje Golf course and the prize giving was held later in the spectacular surroundings of the hotel’s gardens. David Ian Pritcher was a double winner taking the first prize in the first category for men and the Scratch prize and Sheila Coultard won the first prize for the women’s first category. Prizes included holidays in the five star Starwood Hotels & Resorts, golf equipment and spa treatments. Top prize in the raffle was a week’s holiday in the Seychelles.

Second division B

Not for the first time

This will be the third time CD Tenerife have been relegated to the second division B. The first drop suffered by the club to the ignomy of second division B was in 1978, with Manolo Sanchís training the side. They spent five seasons there until winning promotion in the 1982/83 season. Their second spell ‘down below’ was following the 1985/86 season, but this time they escaped after just one year.

Adeje borough now has a new Bike Park.

Sporting gesture Credit: Gerard Zenou

Henry Cooper may never have won the world heavyweight title, but his 1963 fight against Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali) will go down in ring history as on that never-to-be forgotten rainy June evening at Wembley Stadium, Cooper’s fabled left hook, ‘Enery’s ‘ammer as the fans called it, put Clay on the deck for the first time in his career. He would have certainly been counted out if he hadn’t been saved by the bell. Clay was shaken, badly shaken, as he was led back to his corner.

Tributes to the late Seve Ballesteros, who died earlier this month, have included poignant recollections by Rafael Cabrera, one of the top golfers in the Canaries, who is devastated by the loss of his idol.

During a time when being the heavyweight champion of Britain really meant something special, Henry ruled the roost for almost 12 years, from 1959 to 1971, a remarkable record that will never be broken. Our ‘Enery, as he was called, was loved by millions of people in Britain, not only boxing fans but also non-boxing fans who didn’t know a right cross from an uppercut…we were all his fans because of his courage, his skill, his modesty and his humour. Besides holding the British title for so long, Henry also won the European and Commonwealth heavyweight championships and became the first boxer in history to win three Lonsdale belts outright, a feat that can’t be equalled due to the rules now which state that no boxer can hold more than one at a time.

On yer bikes

Situated in Las Torres, the 3,850 square metre park has cost €183,750 and local enthusiasts have helped with the design of the circuits. This public park adds one more link to the already excellent facilities on offer in the municipality and is a further fillip to alternative sports in the zone. It was built in response to public demand in the area, particularly from Las Torres and Las Nieves, where there are numerous fans of ‘extreme’ cycling. Future extensions still in the planning stage will also make available facilities for skateboards and roller skates.

After nearly eight hours of a gruelling 83 kilometre course that took participants around the island’s highest parts, Iker Karrera and Miguel Heras, who had battled together for much of the race, merged as one and ran over the line together to give the judges a headache. In the end, both agreed that chance should decide the winner, a formality required because the race is part of an international series, the Salomon Nature Trails. The coin toss saw Heras, who is from Salamanca and won last year also, get the nod ahead of Karrera. Both runners smashed the previous record for the course by almost half an hour. The women’s race was won by Monica Aguilera.

looks back I

n this edition of Island Connections, Soccer Experience looks back to their beginnings and past events, along with the current local 7s leagues here in the south of Tenerife. “Now well into our fourth year Soccer Experience has plenty to look back over, as in our first few months of opening the doors to the Tenerife public we just concentrated on real training sessions for the football-mad ex-pats who came flocking in, and with the expertise of our own ex-professional Martin Tierney, we all got a taste of a training programme that many of us had never quite experienced. It became apparent within a matter of weeks that all the members loved the training but longed for the competition of match day and so we began our first mini Soccer Experience 7s league where the motto was ‘friendly yet competitive slow motion football.’ Through this, and the support of some

wonderful captains, we have kept our leagues growing and our soccer community supporting one another through football and with their everyday businesses. “Our very name Soccer Experience is exactly what we stand for here in Tenerife, giving us a taste of football experience, and particularly our International Masters Tournament where the local ex pat 7s sides can face some of their boyhood heroes on the pitch, be it ex Celtic legends like Tommy Boyd, ex Barça player Nayim or Liverpool’s Bruce Grobalar. It means that all those involved within our community have experienced playing alongside some real footballing legends, as we strive towards our goal, which is to give any member of the public here in Tenerife who wishes to play football on a weekly basis or even once in a blue moon, the chance to do so with ease, and maybe relive some dreams along the way! “We became the first foot-

teams capable of some wonderful football at times. This league really is a testimony to how far some of the members have come. The Championship league is our starter league as, whilst still keeping the competitive edge, it also contains some less experienced players and some players on their way back from injury. This league has a huge age span, from 17 through to 45 years old. The over 35s league is our newest league and one of the most successful as this league gives the lads a chance of playing within their age group without the pressure and has become thoroughly enjoyable to watch as some of our elder members recapture their youth even if it

It was not easy to win the nomination as one of the host venues and we are not going to get it wrong” he vowed.

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 643 :: 20/05/2011 - 02/06/2011

Ten matches later Tenerife finally won a match but it really was a case of ‘too little too late’. The fall into the Spanish 2nd B is inevitable, this is not just another relegation but the end of an era for the club. The prematch atmosphere was not quite the same usual mix of nerves, cautious optimism and ice cold Dorada beer. A protest group brought together on Facebook asked supporters to mass outside the stadium and vent their anger against the players, the board, the president and the local media. Finally around three hundred protesters holding banners chanted and delayed their entrance into the stadium until the 10th minute of the match as part of the demonstration. In the scorching spring sunshine the blanquiazules started brightly, perhaps the tension has been lifted now that the team were practically demoted. Veteran Antonio Hidalgo attempted to rally the players with several probing runs in the penalty area as Tenerife tried in vain to open the scoring. Recreativo, with still an outside chance of making the play-offs, enjoyed their one and only serious attack of the half after 30 minutes but Juna Villare screwed his shot wide. It was a let off and spurred Tenerife into action, Ricardo whizzed a shot just over the bar and Nino was, as ever, sniffing around for a chance. Centre-midfielder Ricardo has angered fans this week with comments basically stating that he would love to play for CD Tenerife next season and in the future but only in the second division. This seems especially annoying taking into account his horrendous form this term. The first half finished to subdued applause. The blanquiazules had played fairly well but many are resigned to our end of season fate and cannot bring themselves to be too enthusiastic towards many of these players. Substitutions were made during the second half with local youngster GermĂĄn making his mark. The idea to blood several youth players for the remainder of the season is widely accepted to be the only way forward. And it was GermĂĄn who earned a last minute penalty for Tenerife when he was clattered by the Huelva keeper Fabricio. Nino stepped up to smash the ball into the corner of the net and at last the blanquiazules had halted this horrendous run of negative results. The victory was only delay-

ing the inevitable drop. Having said that, it was nice to leave the stadium after a win and to witness the young players slowly finding their feet in the new Tenerife side.

11/05/2011 Real Betis 3:1 CD Tenerife It was party time in Sevilla as Real Betis prepared for their return to the Spanish Primera league. For CD Tenerife it was just a matter of time before they were relegated but despite the final score they gave a good account of themselves in the sold out 45,000 capacity Benito Villamarín Stadium. The match started in the worst possible way for the blanquiazules as Pablo Sicilia was adjudged to have brought down Ruben Castro in the penalty area. And just to rub it in, Las Palmas born Ruben Castro tucked away the penalty as the stadium turned into a sea of green and white joy. Real Betis were unstoppable and Pepe Mel’s team kept up the pressure and intensity against the innocent blanquiazul defence. The home side doubled their lead on 18 minutes after a quick attack had Tenerife spinning circles and Salva Sevilla smashed the ball home after a great lay off by Ruben Castro. Perhaps at this point Tenerife, with nothing to lose, advanced forward as they threatened the Betis goal for the first time. The midfield battle was now even and Tenerife pulled a goal back through Julio Alvarez to make the score 2:1. Youth player Germån, brought in at the last moment due to the injury of Hidalgo in the warm up, was

playing the biggest game of his life. And he almost equalised on 40 minutes but his fierce shot was turned around the post by Castro in the Betis goal. The killer blow was dealt by Betis though, on the stroke of half-time after another defensive error let Isidoro in down the right flank and his crossshot somehow ended up in the goal. A lucky break but they all count. With Betis 3:1 up and La Liga bound, the atmosphere in the stadium was awesome. Both clubs in Sevilla, Real Betis and Sevilla CF, are fortunate to have such passionate fans although the fireworks and flares let off during the game in the stands will result in a hefty fine. During the second half Tenerife controlled large periods of play as Betis took their foot off the pedal. Having said that the blanquiazules were inspired by the return to the team of Mikel Alonso and they played some great football. The lack of a recognised striker, Nino was suspended and Igor was out of favour, meant that efforts on goal were sporadic and rather hopeful. The game finished without any surprises but due to other results Betis were not quite promoted and Tenerife were not quite relegated but both sides knew that it was a just a question of time. Despite this, thousands of Betis supporters invaded the pitch and the party lasted well into the night in the Sevilla area.

This is the story of the ‘Ninoshow’ and without him the blanquiazules would have definitely lost this game against high flying Valladolid. The game started positively enough for the home side in a muggy Heliodoro stadium. Only 15 minutes had passed when Dubarbier lifted the ball over the outstretched Valladolid keeper to open the scoring. The scant support in the stadium at last had something to cheer about although many fans had given up chances of survival many weeks ago. The joy was short-lived as minutes later Luna harshly received a red card for a last ditch, last man foul and soon after Javi Guerra equalised for the visitors. With Valladolid eyeing up a play-off place they knew that this was a good chance to take all three points and when Sisi scored a sizzling free-kick, there seemed to be only one winner of the match. Nino had other ideas and with the help of youngsters Iriome and GermĂĄn the game was turned on its head. The ten men of Tenerife attempted to give the faithful few who had turned up a worthwhile trip. The crowd sensed this and cheered the players forward. Nino equalised on 66 minutes after a superb individual effort and ten minutes later the blanquiazules took the lead. GermĂĄn beat three players in one sweet movement before cutting the ball back to Nino to score his 15th goal of the season. It was like a dark cloud had been lifted, if just for a while, and it was the type of spirited performance that the supporters had deserved. A sneak preview of next season perhaps with youngsters Iriome, Omar, Zambrano and GermĂĄn starring, all Tenerife born lads. The 3-2 win dented Valladolid´s promotion plans and only put off Tenerife´s relegation that was confirmed the next day as Nastic de Tarragona beat Betis. Will Nino stay or go? Without doubt his wages are far too high for a club in the third tier of Spanish football but he has stated that he is willing to negotiate as he is very happy here. Fan groups have started initiatives on Facebook to try to keep Nino on the island and have even invented ways to help fund his wages.
