F

our years ago the victorious socialists were denied seats at the top table as the Coalición Canarias and the Partido Popular did a deal to share power and see the party that won the popular vote consigned to the opposition benches – so is history repeating itself? Certainly the regional PP leader Soria would disagree and has argued that he has the right to assume the regional presidency having seen his party increase its seats in the regional parliament from 15 to 21. Unfortunately the rules of democracy would beg to differ, and an overall majority is needed if one party is to assume office without the support of others. And so the dealing began and as we go to press it would seem that, bar a few t-crossings and i-dottings, Paulino Rivero will retain the regional presidency as the CC, with 21 seats, enter a new partnership with the Canarian socialists, 15 seats, under José Miguel Pérez, who will be the

new vice president. It would appear that the minor partners will have three ministers at the cabinet table as well. All this has been helped by the CC’s continuing support for the Zapatero government in votes at national level.

But the pact will also have a ‘cascade’ effect and will see deals done down the line, which is forcing both sides to make some sacrifices. The biggest casualty of the agreement being brokered between the Canarian Coalition and the PSOE party

is probably going to be José Manuel Bermúdez, the latter’s candidate for mayor in Santa Cruz and considered a near certainty for election prior to 22 May. Bermúdez, who lost narrowly to the Popular Party’s Cristina Tavío but could have

expected to be given the job as part of an overall deal with the PSOE, was under pressure to step aside in favour of the PSOE’s Julio Pérez in return for the PSOE support at regional and Cabildo level. Regarding the latter, the deal would see Ricardo Melchior remain in office in Tenerife for another four

At local level the trickle down effect won’t go too far as local issues and power brokers take over, and while the PP and PSOE might be arch enemies at national level, in some town halls around the islands these strange bed fellows are happily sharing the sheets.

Results

The state of the parties

Winners and losers

Discussions are still going on in many areas over who will pact with whom, although a pact at regional government level between the CC and the PSOE looks likely and last details were being finalised as we went to print. The island Cabildos seemed to be causing most debates with none of the seven island councils’ future government clear except for La Gomera, whose sitting President, Casimiro Curbelo, was re-elected with an overall majority. Of the areas where there are a large number of foreign residents, in Adeje, Arona, Guía de Isora and Mogán, the sitting mayors were re-elected with overall majorities. The number of councillors remained the same in Adeje, but the PSOE lost one representative and their voted was reduced from 62.08 per cent of the total to 54.19 per cent. In Arona, the sitting Coalición Canarias mayor lost only a small margin of his popular vote from 44.42 per cent in 2007 to 43.04 per cent, but retained all his 13 councillors. Whilst on the face of it, the PSOE representative in Guía de Isora would seem to have had a better result increasing his number of councillors from 10 to 11, the overall number of councillors increased from 17 to 21 and his actual share of the vote dropped from 54.59 per cent four years ago to 49.24 per cent. In Mogán in Gran Canaria, the sitting mayor for the PP was re-elected, with one more councillor than last time, but as in Guía de Isora, the number of councillors had increased

and his share of the vote went down from 53.1 per cent to 50.65 per cent, against the national trend. A good result for the conservatives though in San Bartolomé de Tirajana where minority government has meant the baton changing hands several times over the last four years, but there is now a clear majority for the PP. The number of councillors increased from 21 to 25 and the PP and AV combination of 2007 which scooped nine seats and 37.13 per cent of the vote, now have 14 seats and 46.07 per cent. In Granadilla de Abona and Valle Gran Rey the PSOE were the most voted party, but will depend on pacts if they are to govern, in Pájara the PSOE and CC drew at seven councillors each but will have to rely on the support of minority parties to form a viable governing group and in Puerto de la Cruz and San Miguel de Abona, the Coalición Canarias, was the most voted party, and will be looking for new partners. Yaiza’s winning party was PIL, hard hit overall this time after major corruption scandals, but a pact could still put them in the driving seat. In the councils with a high number of foreign voters, only two pacts had been formed as we go to print. In Tías the PP candidate has pacted with San Borondón and

Arona mayor José Alberto González Reverón won an overall majority

Cristina Tavío did extremely well in Santa Cruz but will remain on the opposition benches

E

ven though the deals have not yet been signed and sealed it would seem that there are more than a few losers and some winners following the 2011 elections.

Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga retains his seat

Tenerife Cabildo president Ricardo Melchior hoping to be relected following a pact with the PSOE and the CC

in Santiago del Teide the sitting mayor retains his place after changing his party and pacting with the PSOE. Full voting

results by party and borough can be found at resultados. elpais.com/elecciones/2011/ municipals.

The biggest loser of all would appear to be José Manuel Soria, regional leader of the Partido Popular, who increased the party’s vote but not enough to win an overall majority at regional level. In Santa Cr uz Cristina Tavío did the same for the par ty, winning a record number of votes in the Tenerife capital, but with the CC/PSOE pact coming into play will lose out. So too will the CC’s José Manuel Bermúdez who would have considered himself a good bet for the chain of office of the city, but will probably have to watch the socialist Julio Pérez place it around his neck instead. As mentioned elsewhere, at local level winners include Juan Gorrín in Santiago del

Teide, who switched parties mid term and manages to hold onto office thanks to a pact with the PSOE, and in Adeje, Arona and Guía de Isora, the incumbent mayors will resume official duties thanks to overall majorities in their boroughs, bucking regional and national trends to some extent.

Tributes have been paid to Darrell Dean Walker

Tenerife recently lost one of its best entertainers. Darrell Dean Walker, who died recently, was always interested in music and in his early teens he learned guitar and played in various groups, appearing around England at an assortment of venues. Eventually he started to write his own songs and moved towards doing solo spots at clubs in and around London. In the 1980s he started to work in the Balearic islands and then moved to Tenerife where his voice and music earned thousands of fans over the years. He will be greatly missed. Darrell Dean Walker’s funeral will be held on Monday June 6th at 11am at Adeje Cemetery.

In Tenerife beaches to lose the flag include the Playa Jardín (Puerto de la Cruz), Leocadio Machado (Granadilla) and El Socorro (Los Realejos). Other new flags have been awarded to La Gomera’s Playa de Santiago and Fuerteventura’s Las Playitas (Tuineje).

Each year, national Blue Flag juries assess all Blue Flag candidates to ensure they meet all of the criteria for beaches and marinas at the national and international level. Those that do are then forwarded to the International Jury, who focuses on set criteria that varies from year to year, before giving a final verdict. Spain overall boasts 520 blue flag beaches – the highest number in any one country included in the programme - and 84 marinas.

Six dead

Vagrant deaths probe The Spanish authorities are to launch an investigation into the recent deaths of six vagrants in the Tenerife capital in the space of a few weeks.

The new service should help foreign tourists in trouble

ccording to local daily El Día, the National Police headquarters in Costa Adeje are to introduce a much needed attention service for foreign tourists (SATE) which is scheduled to begin between the 6th and 9th June, opening from 9am to 2pm. Apart from attending, in both psychological and linguistic terms, to foreign tourists who have been victims of an offence during their stay in Tenerife, the National Police officers will help with the preparation of the paperwork needed to present a denuncia, cancelling credit and bank cards, and arranging contact with their embassies or consulates. They will also communicate with families of victims if necessary, and begin the process of searching for lost items. The Ministry of Justice has asked the island’s forensic unit to test the remains of the six dead men for traces of poison or other substances that may have been behind the mysterious deaths. Unit head José Cuellas says the probe is unofficial for the moment but

This initiative is the result of a meeting held by the chief of National Police for the south of Tenerife, Carlos Ludeña, an official and an inspector from the headquarters, the chiefs of the Adeje and Arona local police forces, two representatives of the Cabildo, and Arona council’s councillor for police Manuel Reverón, who commented that the creation of this service has been demanded by different sectors and collectives in the South, as well as security professionals. It will mark “a notable advance” in the improvement of services for foreign tourists in the most important part of the Island where tourism is the main economic activity. “It will cover a fundamental deficiency at the national police station, and signifies a great improvement in the quality of this tourist destination”. is to be undertaken to rule out foul play. “The general opinion is that the deaths were from natural causes but the coincidence of so many in a short time-frame means that other possibilities have to be looked at to be ruled out” said a source

Brigitte Kleine

Granny on wheels A

lthough Brigitte Kleine sees herself as quite an ordinar y person, when you think about it she really is someone ver y special. This sprightly lady comes from Germany (Bad Salzuflen) and is currently on her great journey on her bicycle around the world, which she thinks will last for about ten years. All this on a small pension and by a woman who is almost completely deaf. We caught up with her during a recent break in the Canary Islands. Brigitte’s journey started in 2006. Although she doesn’t speak any other languages except German she decided she wanted to experience the world as it is today, to meet people from ever ywhere she could and as far away from the tourist routes as possible. “The world is good and the poorer people are, the more helpful they are�, says the woman who raised two daughters as a young widow and could never travel in her life because she had to work, and travel would have been an unaffordable luxury. Brigitte, at the age of 64 you are on a world tour. Your journey started five years ago and today you have visited 32 countries. How did it all begin? “Years ago I cycled with a group of people accompanied by a team from the German TV station WDR through a German region called Ostwestfalen Lippe. Some time after this I bought a new bicycle. A neighbour of mine was very curious and asked: ‘What do you want to do with this bicycle?’ and off the top of my head I answered, ‘I might just cycle around the world!’ After saying this on the spur of the moment I could not get rid of the idea

of really doing this. I needed a three-year preparation time in order to be ready to start my journey and at the beginning of my early retirement I realised that from now on my life would become ver y dif ferent and exciting. Bike makers Patria from LeopoldshĂśhe, Germany gave me a wonderful bicycle and I was off. “After a 1,900 km road-test through Germany I started my first stage in Suriname, South America. After that I explored Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Belize, Honduras and Mexico. Later on I cycled in Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, Laos and Malaysia. I visited South Vietnam, China, Singapore, Brunei and Japan. Before entering Israel, Egypt and Jordania, I cycled in Southern India. Now I am having a break in the Canary Islands, on Lanzarote, Tenerife and Fuerteventura. “I got to know many people

in different countries, their way of life and cultural activities, I saw desperate poverty and great wealth. Now I am looking for ward soon to seeing Canada. A ‘civilised first-world’ country.� How have you managed with just your bike to take you from place to place all over the world? “All I need fits in four bicycle bags or in a medium-sized suitcase. I have learned that actually one needs very few things. I cycle without hurry, and when I see something interesting or beautiful I take my time to really look at it. I travel with joy. If mountains are too high or too exhausting, I take the bus or the train. I take the opportunity of inland fights in the case of big distances. When I leave the plane, I saddle my trusted bicycle and step on the pedals. I have spent the night in many different and often strange places, in bug-ridden beds in private boarding houses

or even in some luxury hotel, if people sponsored me. I have also spent the night in a tent or in a ditch on the side of the road in warm countries, or in cheap hostels with a dozen beds in dormitories. Chance meetings often helped me. People who made it possible for me to stay with their friends and acquaintances. I do not speak any foreign languages, not even English because I can hardly hear. I communicate with hands and legs or I make a drawing. Gesturing is a language which is understood worldwide. “I always have been ver y much interested in native and primitive people, their way of life, cultures and religions. Therefore I visited the Mayas in Guatemala, the Orang Aslis in Malaysia and in Panama the Kunas or the Emberas, who live in the jungle and still dress in loincloths. I was also with the Haki Pikis in India and in Borneo in the middle of the jungle. For these areas

there are no maps. This is always an adventure. I saw wild tropical animals, Anacondas in Venezuela and Orang-Utangs in Malaysia.� You are often alone and far away from home. What do you feel as a woman? Have all these meetings left many traces? What would you advise other older people to do with their lives? “Yes, travelling alone is not always fun. In Honduras I was attacked, injured and robbed by an armed gang. I have already survived a scorpion sting. As a regular traveller one is always self dependent. On my web pages: www.grannies-bike world-trip.de you can also read something about this. At the moment I am strongly involved with Guatemala. If I earn money from my lectures I donate it. “The Canar y Islands are a real contrast to many poor countries but, to be honest I must confess that I needed this short holiday in order to

revitalise myself. I am using the break to write down my experiences. “To other older citizens I say, don’t sit down on a park bench and wait until your time runs out. Do something worthwhile, get moving and be active for as long as possible. Feel free to do what you have always wanted to do and live your own life, instead of being chained to people, to a house or to old and boring habits. You can spend the winter on the Canary Islands, even with a small income. Travelling keeps the body and the brain young. I am looking forward right now to seeing Canada. The Condor travel agency will sponsor the flight for me. I am not only glad but very grateful for it.� We also wish Brigitte the best of luck for the future. With her optimistic and adventurous personality she will always find new interesting places and she will no doubt make many new friends as she continues to cycle around the world.

Vendetta claim

Warning over Karate abuse ‘sunniest spot’ ‘invented by apartments jealous rival’ A developer who is trying to sell apartments in one of Europe’s sunniest parts has been warned that buyers could face a legal nightmare if they proceed with their purchase. The apartment complex in Tazacor te (La Palma) has been ruled illegal by the Supreme Court because it was built on rural land. The ruling could see the entire complex be demolished to restore the site to its previous status but the local council has ignored the threat and has issued an occupation licence to the firm, giving it the all-clear to sell the desirable properties. A massive adver tising campaign, offering a discount of 40 per cent and free air travel to La Palma for an inspection visit, has attracted some interest in the 24 seafront apartments but media coverage of the potential dangers is already causing some prospective buyers from the mainland to pull out.

The owner of a karate club who is currently on remand on multiple charges of sexual abuse of youngsters says the case against him is total fabrication and a vendetta by a former colleague who left to set up his own club. Fernando Torres Baena and his wife, along with another instructor at the couple’s Las Palmas karate club, stand accused of grooming dozens of past pupils for sex and organising orgies with the youngsters at his home. However, Baena says the flood of allegations against him was triggered by his decision, when head of the Canarian Karate Federation, to bar a newly-formed club from par ticipating in the national championships. “It is no coincidence that the allegations were taken to police just one day after my former associate was informed he would not be able to send a team to the championships” argued Baena in court during a fresh attempt to have the case dropped.

Gluten, no so free

Coeliacs paying more A

ccording to latest reports Canarian based coeliac sufferers are paying up to €1,500 more a year for their grocer y shopping. Coeliacs are gluten intolerant. Gluten, a protein present in cereals, is found in up to 70 per cent of foodstuffs sold in supermarkets, such as bread, cakes, biscuits, lots of cured meats, sausages, drinks, and other food products which might not be made with gluten products but which could have gluten by-products. While there are is a growing list of gluten free foods on the market, they can be more expensive. It is calculated that in the Spanish peninsula a coeliac can expect to pay up to €90 more per month for their food, here in the Canary Islands that can rise to €120. According to Garbiñe Artetxe, the president of ACET, the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Association of Coeliacs, a kilo of normal pasta will cost about one euro, but a celiac will pay up to six euros for the same amount of gluten-free pasta. “We feel abandoned by the authorities”, the father of a young girl who is coeliac told local press. “We are not in receipt of any kind of financial assistance, although in some parts of Spain families are receiving up to €120 a month in subsistence.

Israel flight ‘by end of year’ A new direct flight from Israel to Gran Canaria should be operational by the end of the year, following the recent exploratory visit by travel sector representatives from the Middle East country. Gran Canaria hosted a group of Israeli travel writers and travel agents and the week-long fact-finding trip has led to more formal negotiations on a direct air link. Sources at the Tourist Board say flights are likely to commence in late autumn, although the details have still to be finalised.

Bread is one of the products high in gluten

to absorb certain foods and proteins, and can lead to constant diarrhea, dermatitis, infertility, anemia, diabetes, chronic fatigue, among other symptoms.

Gran Canaria sent a delegation to the Tel Aviv holiday fair for the first time and the feedback received at the island’s stand appears to have convinced several Israeli tour groups that a charter flight is a viable proposition.

Silbo lives on Whistle while you work...

L

a Gomera’s school children have an extra, totally unique subject on their school curriculum. They are the only children on the planet who are are initiated into the secrets of an ancient, whistled language called the Silbo. An understanding of how the Silbo was born as a means of communication, and why it evolved and survived in La Gomera and nowhere else, is best achieved with a drive around the island. It takes a while to travel across this small island, with its deep valleys, or barrancos, radiating outwards towards the coast from the centre. You have to snake your way round the valleys. The roads are safe, but slow. There are only a handful of places where fourth gear can be triumphantly engaged and these are mostly inside tunnels, built to cut out even more tortuous twists and turns. Perfect for car rallies, but purgatory for general road users in a hurry, a trip across La Gomera is best undertaken with calm and good music. Chill out is appropriate. You can easily see across the barrancos to the other side. You could throw a stone across most of them very easily, but it will take you ages to drive around. If you had to walk, which was once the case, you would probably need the best part of three hours to climb down one side and up the other to get to the spot opposite you. On one side with your goats, or farming your land, when the wife wanted a word, or you needed help, some way of communicating without trekking all the way up and down to get over there was needed. Early islanders started to use whistled messages, which eventually became the comprehensive means of communication encountered by the Spanish when

Water sampling

Investigators from INVOLCAN, the Canarian Volcanic Institute, the UAC, the Volcanic Observatory of the Azores, and the University of the Azores undertook a joint sampling of waters to estimate the carbon dioxide emissions from the main volcanic lakes on the island of San Miguel and Furnas, Fogo and Sete Cidades in the Azores. The interest in the levels of CO2 have gained momentum after the tragedy in Cameroon in Africa in 1986 when strong emissions from the Nyos lake created a CO2 cloud which dropped into the valleys and expanded at an alarming rate causing the death of over 1,800 people as well as devastating livestock herds.

they conquered the island in the fifteenth century. The Gomero whistles evolved into a language capable of succinctly communicating everything. Well documented examples of the islanders outwitting their Spanish conquerors with it exist. Messages were swiftly transmitted around the island from whistler to whistler, warning of invasion or attack. The same applied during five centuries of cacique feudalism and during forty years of repressive dictatorship in the twentieth century, when police sent to arrest or investigate troublemakers usually found their victims had already fled. Later, the Silbo was ver y useful in letting islanders know that unwelcome visitors, such as work inspectors, were on the prowl. On an island where it was customary for everyone to work as much as possible ‘off the books’, social security work inspectors could have had a field day, but the Silbo, long before mobile phones - or even land lines - ensured that

everyone knew almost as soon as they got off the ferry. From the late seventies through to the mid-nineties, when mobiles took over, busy building sites would suddenly stop when a warning ‘they’re on their way’ whistle arrived from across the island. Ever yone went fishing, or watched from bars at a safe distance while the work inspectors trawled deserted building sites and closed bars and shops for disappeared workers. Questioning passers-by or nearby residents was equally fruitless. Away went the officials, back to Tenerife, frustrated and angry until the next time, all-clear whistles accompanying their departure. Mobile phones could have killed this language, had steps not been taken to protect it by a group of determined islanders. Parents’ associations organised the first Silbo classes as afterschool activities some twenty years ago and they proved very popular. Pupils from country villages still knew and used the Silbo, but their classmates

down in coastal areas, where the main source of income was tourism, were far less likely to have learnt it at home. Twelve years ago, Canarian Regional Government decreed that the Silbo should be taught within the school curriculum. It thus became an obligatory subject for all school children. Classes start when they are six and continue until they are teenagers, ensuring that the Silbo remains part of island life. The lobby to have the Silbo further recognised and protected as unique gained momentum and, two years ago, it was declared ‘of Intangible Cultural Heritage’ by UNESCO and its protection secured. The Santiago Apóstol school in Playa Santiago, Alajeró, was the scene of this year’s Silbo Day, when hundreds of children gathered to show their skills . The town band played, the sun shone and everyone whistled like mad. As island poet Pedro García Cabrera said, “Whistle high, whistle low. Whistle for all you’re worth”.

The Tenerife Cabildo and the University of Laguna through the Foundation for the Development of the University have signed an agreement on the development of renewable energies. Ricardo Melchior and Eduardo Domenech are already looking forward to future collaboration with the renewable energies institute ITER to install solar panels on various buildings and parking zones in the University’s main faculties in the Anchieta, Central, Guajara, Santa Cruz and health sciences campuses. ITER will also develop other projects within the university, as well as funding student and study grants on projects within their remit.

Air Europa Air Europa will offer more seats due to the addition of the Airbus 330-200 to its fleet

Abuse programme

OAP home staff speak The programme detailed abuse of elderly residents

New airbus to bring more passengers

Air Europa has increased the number of passenger places to the Canary Islands this summer by 70,000.

The increases will be mostly on the Tenerife route with 50,000 more seats and Las Palmas, bringing the number of visitors the airline plan to bring here over the summer months up to one and a half million, with the majority of those flying from Madrid and Barcelona airports. However they will also be flying from France, Italy and England. One of the reasons behind the increase in available seats is the introduction of the new Airbus 330-200 to the fleet. These craft can offer 24 business class seats and 275 tourist class. They are also well suited to long haul flights.

T

he airing of a programme highlighting abuse and inhumane treatment of elderly residents of a Las Palmas care home has encouraged some former members of staff to come forward and tell their stories. After an unsuccessful attempt to block the fly-on-wall documentary from being shown on prime time TV, the home

is now facing a barrage of criticism over its treatment of residents, some of them helpless. One former carer has revealed in an interview with newspaper Canarias 7 that she had sleepless nights when she worked their due to the appalling conditions. “I was there for three months and only started sleeping well when I left but the programme has brought it all back. At times

I was on my own on the night shift and if several residents vomited or soiled themselves I did not have time to deal with all of them due to my other duties. It was a horrible experience but I was afraid to speak out in case they made life difficult for me� said the female carer. A formal investigation into goings on at the well-known home is under way.

Flight connections

More low cost tourists So far this year the number of tourists arriving to the Canaries aboard low cost flights has increased by over 35 per cent. In the first four months of the year, the Canaries received more passengers on low cost flights than any other region of Spain, 2,131,500, 23.3 per cent of the total received by the country as a whole and an increase of 35.8 per cent on the same period last year. The April figures were particularly spectacular with 553,441 passengers arriving here, which represents 17.7 per cent of the total for the whole of Spain and an increase of 66.8 per cent over April 2010. Increases were also registered from traditional companies, with 17.2 per cent more passengers arriving by this method of transport, 1,647,344 in total.

Anaga

News in Brief >>

Biosphere application ‘not a priority’ Residents of one of Tenerife’s most spectacular natural areas say they have more pressing concerns than to have it designated a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco. As calls grow for an official bid to have the Anaga mountains in the north-eastern tip of the island included on the world list to ensure their conservation, people living in the remote villages say they would prefer efforts to be channelled towards making their day to day lives easier. In interviews in Tenerife daily La Opinión, several families living in secluded spots such as Bejía insist that, while a formal conservation status would be nice, it would not resolve their problems. “We had to carry the hundreds of blocks needed to build our home because of the lack of proper roads. We did not even have rubbish collection until 2008 and when the rain comes it floods the entire area,

Abuse allegations

Aitana doctors seek closure on proceedings Three doctors who face the prospect of going on trial in connection with the death of a young Costa del Silencio girl have asked for the proceedings to be shelved definitively in the light of what they consider new evidence that the child may, after all, have died as the result of abuse by her mother’s boyfriend.

The Anaga mountains, a new biosphere reserve?

cutting us off completely. Our youngsters have to ‘emigrate’ to La Laguna or Santa Cruz to go to school and many never want to return” said one couple.

The Biosphere bid is being promoted by Santa Cruz council, which, in addition to the conservation aspects, sees it as an ideal way to increase foreign tourism for

the mountains. However, it will not be taken forward without the backing of locals, a prospect which seems a long way off for the moment.

The boyfriend, Diego Pastrana, filed charges against the doctors for failing to spot serious internal injuries sustained in a swing fall a few days before her death at the end of 2009. At the time, Pastrana said the doctors “put him through hell” by notifying the authorities of their concerns at marks on her body. He was arrested immediately and vilified in the media but was released shortly afterwards when details of the playground incident were confirmed. Now, however, experts hired by Aitana’s mother want the case reopened after finding evidence that the youngster’s death was unlikely to have been caused by the fall but by other, unexplained injuries indicative of physical violence. The doctors, from the Candelaria Hospital, insist they did all they could to save Aitana and were right to share their abuse suspicions.

Guilty

Isabel family happy with verdict

Isabel Canino whose ex-partner Salvador Morales was found guilty of her murder

T

he family of murdered bus driver Isabel Canino have expressed their satisfaction at the guilty verdict reached by the jur y that tried her former boyfriend for her death two years ago. Salvador Morales, with whom she maintained a stormy relationship for 17 years, was convicted of her murder and faces at least 20 years in jail, after the jury recommended the highest possible prison tariff to take into account the anguish caused to her family at her 72-day disappearance and the fact that he coldly dumped her body in a septic tank in a bid to avoid discovery. Isabel’s family, who wept and hugged each other on hearing the verdict read out, said they were glad that her killer had been brought to justice. “There was a lot of

talk about compensation at the end of the trial but we were only interested in him being punished for what he did. He will have time to reflect on

his actions behind bars” said Isabel’s sister Eladia minutes after the verdict. Morales admitted disposing of Isabel’s body, which he said he found

Fernando Socorro

Council rapped over illegal embargo L

a Laguna council has been slammed by the Canarian Ombudsman for making a local man’s life misery over property taxes he should never have been asked to pay. Fernando Socorro learned in 2008 that a freeze had been placed on his bank account by the council for not paying two bills dating back to 1998. The bills, for €210 and €265, were issued in respect of the annual IBI tax on two properties he no longer owned but, try as he might, the officials would not reverse their decision and the conflict subsequently escalated. His refusal to pay up saw him summonsed several times despite providing proof on multiple occasions that he had sold the properties in 1997. In 2008 he was astounded to find that an embargo had been placed on his account until the matter was settled. He took his case to the Ombudsman, who has also given up trying to extract information from La

Family sources say he was motivated by jealousy that Isabel was seeing another man, also an employee of the TITSA bus company.

Bus station for San Miguel

Safe stop needed

Residents in San Miguel de Abona are calling urgently for a bus station in the area, given the increasing population and the need for security.

According to a spokesperson for residents in Las Chafiras, the growing number of people living in the lower part of the borough has seen a huge rise in the numbers in need of reliable public service transport. They are calling for a station and an adequate number of buses to cover the zone’s needs in Las Chafiras, Llano del Camello, Aldea Blanca and the tourist areas of Golf del Sur and Amarilla Golf. At the moment anyone who wishes to travel from one part of the borough to another has to suffer a complicated system of bus transfers and route changes or make their way to bus stops along unsafe routes for pedestrians, particularly those which are located alongside the motorway, say residents. “The best solution would be a bus station with a number of stops through which the major lines would have to pass to allow passengers on or off. This way users are guaranteed comfort and security”.

El Puertito learning centre

News in Brief >>

Under the sea…

W

hile there may not be any pineapples under the sea in El Puertito, soon children and adults will be invited not just to discover but to work to recover and conser ve the marine ecosystem that is a vital part of our lives through the establishment of a ‘marine classroom’ or sea-based learning centre in this small bay in Adeje. El Puertito, long one of the favoured spots for a different and more relaxed kind of beach experience among residents and holiday makers in South Tenerife, is now the centre for the creation of this learning centre, a pioneering idea in Spain, with the main objective being the promotion of harmony and sustainable co-existence, improving the lives of the indigenous flora and fauna, creating a new branch of marine tourism in perfect keeping with the need to protect our environment, as well as allowing students of all ages to learn more about life under the sea. The zone is near the beach, and is, on average, six metres under the sea, and around 700 square metres. In 2004 the Ocean Dreams Factory set in motion a pro-

gramme to restore the seabed at El Puertito. The marine ecosystem had been severely damaged by a plague of sea urchin (Diadema antillorum) leaving it utterly lifeless, an underwater desert. The sea urchin is one of the most abundant species of invertebrates on the seabeds of the Canary Islands, and has become one of its biggest problems over the years, affecting more than 60 per cent of the ecosystems of the rocky coasts of the Islands. Within these areas, the shelter offered by the cover of algae has been destroyed, and this in turn has adversely affected the local fishing industry and poses a serious threat to the conser vation of the marine ecosystems in the islands. So, together, the Ocean Dreams Factory and Océano Sostenible began to work to recover El Puertito, helping it grow into a haven for numerous species including green turtles (Chelona midas), a species at the top of the list of protected species in the Canary Islands, seahorses (Hippocampus ramulosus), and Harlequin crabs (Platypodiella picta), among many others. Now the next step is to raise awareness of the need for ma-

rine sustainability as well as introducing people to the incredible world beneath the waves. One of the branches of the new marine reserve is Flyover, aimed at both residents and visitors to the island, intended for anyone who wants to experience conservation first hand and wishes to interact directly with nature whilst at the same time respecting the needs of the amazing creatures found beneath the waves. Even those with no diving experience can enjoy this. Supported by PADI Project Aware and Océano Sostenible, The Ocean Dreams Factory will immerse the visitor in a Marine Micro-Reserve experience, discovering the beauty of Costa Adeje, offering him both a helpful exercise in environmental assessment and a powerful preservation tool. With an experienced diver by their side, beginners will ‘fly’ underwater over the regenerated area, getting to meet the species that live there, and participating in research and conservation activities. The project is backed by Adeje council, the national coastal department, the Canarian association for a sustainable ocean and the Loro Parque foundation.

BBVA

Happy anniversary card T

o celebrate the 40th anniversary of the availability of the credit card in Spain, the pioneers of this system here, BBVA, have announced they will issue a commemorative card. These days we are all accustomed to the convenience of paying with plastic, i.e. credit card, but it wasn’t so very long ago, that it wouldn’t have been possible. The first credit card worldwide was issued in 1951 by the Franklin National Bank in the United States and the first cards here were launched on the 14 April 1971 by Banco Bilbao. The first cards here were issued thanks to an agreement between Banco Bilbao and BankAmericard, a brand of the Bank of America. They had a maximum limit of 25,000 pesetas (€150) and payment terms were from 10 per cent of the outstanding amount each month up to paying the whole amount. The BBVA confirmed all these years later that the cards were an immediate success and by the end of 1971, the bank had issued 742,000 cards although they had only been expecting demand for 215,000. Within three months of the first card being put into circulation, 5,200 establishments had registered to accept them. The new product meant 77 new jobs at the time. In the years following, the cards lead to other products that we now all take for granted like the cash machines. In 1976, Visa was born which allowed the bodies who participated in the system to be co-owners of the brand and by the end of the 70s there were 4.4 million cards in circulation,

with eight million transactions taking place and total billing of around 23 million pesetas. The first gold Visa card in Europe was launched by Banco Bilbao in the 80s and they backed the creation of Servired, the first integrated chain of cash machines. Electronic billing was introduced. By the 90s prepaid cards and debit cards had been introduced and a decade later mobiles came into play. By the end of 2010, the BBVA had over 53 million cards in circulation with an annual billing of €23.4 million of which €11.211 million were purchase and the balance cash withdrawals.

It’s by no means the end of the story, private cards for various shops are on the increase as retailers fight to establish return buyers and fix the loyalty of the clients and the bank expects demand to grow between four and five per cent this year. The company held a special celebration in Bilbao with 800 people including clients and bank staff who were involved in the launching of the first card and an exhibition is being prepared, showing the evolution of this bank product, which will travel all over Spain. The anniversary card is on offer free this year from BBVA.

Economy

Lower consumption, higher taxation A downturn in the Canarian economy could result in an increase in the direct tax IGIC (the local VAT) according to a leading economist. A report for Funcas (Savings banks’ foundation) noted a reduction in the local Gross Domestic Product of 0.45 per cent during 2010, the largest drop in the country and a further report by BBVA shows that this was one of the regions where tax contributions fell the most which has led economics

We offer a variety of legal services to English- speaking visitors and Expats alike, including:

expert, José Miguel González, to the conclusion that the Government will probably increase the IGIC in the second half of the year. The national downturn of GDP was an average of 0.11 per cent, so the Canarian figure is very worrying at almost four times that rate. González blamed the figure on the work intensive economy of the islands which both rise and fall more quickly than other more mixed economies and ex-

plained that the Islands were more vulnerable because they were more open to eternal influences and had little home demand. There may be less demand and less growth but people are trying harder here with an increase in productivity according to the Funcas report of 2.26 per cent, marginally above the 2.24 per cent national increase. However with the good start experienced in the tourism sector this year, González admitted that there appeared to be, “the beginnings of a recovery” but warned that it could be 15 years before the Canaries gets to the level of employment it enjoyed in 2007.

Does the Bank of England inflation report mean interest rates will rise? By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

W

hile the Bank of England interest rate has remained stubbornly unchanged since March 2009, the same cannot be said for interest rate forecasts which have been changing from one month to the next, sometimes from one week to the next. The lesson to be learned here is that we cannot rely on such forecasts and if you need your savings to generate more income for you, you should discuss your options with a wealth manager rather than just hoping for rates to improve. Even when they do, if you need to protect the value of your capital from inflation over the longerterm you probably should not leave all your savings in cash anyway. On 11th May the Bank of England released its quarterly Inflation Report. It warns of downward pressures on economic growth combined with continuing upward pressure on inflation - a combination which makes interest rate decisions rather difficult for the Monetary Policy Committee.

The Bank of England

Inflation is forecast to remain “uncomfortably high” and is on track to hit five per cent this year and be higher than the Bank’s two per cent target next year. At the same time the BoE downgraded its growth forecast for 2011 yet again, and also downgraded its 2012 forecast.

Even with the weak outlook, the Governor, Mervyn King signalled the possibility of a rate rise this year, saying that the Inflation Report “does suggest that the Bank rate cannot stay at this level indefinitely”. However he also said that “I don’t think it tells you which month it will rise” and advised that we should not read too much

into rate projections. While some commentators reacted to the report by saying the BoE could raise the base rate as soon as August, others say it will probably be at the end of the year and only a small 0.25 per cent increase. If the economy is the more dominant concern a rate rise in the near term is less likely

Inditex

Just ten years after it floated on the stock exchange, Inditex’s owner, Amancio Ortega, the seventh richest man in the world, has decided to invest in the UK property market. The property he has in his sights is a six-floor, 4,000 square metres building in Oxford Street, the most important shopping street in London. The total cost of the operation is said to be in the region of €250 million. Part of the deal has already gone through with the purchase of a corner of Jubilee House last October, the rest is expected

and the Bank may prefer to wait until there is reliable evidence that the corporate recovery is fully under way before making a move. Money left in the bank is almost guaranteed to be eroded by inflation when low interest rates and tax are taken into account. Savers are becoming tired of waiting for interest rates

to improve and are moving money into assets like corporate bonds. As more money moves across, prices are rising. Also positive for high yield corporate bonds is the increased confidence in financial markets which translated to a near record quarter in new issuance, with some bonds experiencing strong capital appreciation due to refinancing or as they were bought by investment grade companies. Performance is helped by a steady income stream. Some high yield bond funds could produce income yields close to double digits – significantly higher than bank interest rates. When moving money out of cash into other investment assets you should aim to have a balanced por tfolio which reflects your objectives, risk tolerance and investment time frame. You should discuss your situation with a wealth management firm like Blevins Franks to get personal recommendations.

An expert in the London property market was quoted in the Expansión economic newspaper as remarking, “it’s a good investment, for the area and for the tenants that the building has”. Ortega already has property in Spain, France and the United States. He bought an apartment near to Belgravia Square some time ago and this is his second venture into the UK property market.

HouseCalls Dear Dr. De La Flor I keep hearing that vitamin D is really good for your health. But I’m also worried about skin cancer. I wear a hat and use sunscreen every day. So with all this coverage, can I still get Vitamin D by sitting or walking outside? Sincerely, Sonia

Dear Sonia, You pose an excellent question about gaining vitamin D by sunlight exposure vs. the risk of skin cancer. Sitting outside in sunlight will boost vitamin D levels but your skin must be exposed and free of sunscreen. However, it should be your priority to reduce the risk of skin cancer. You must also take into account your family/ personal history, type of skin and our constantly sunny climate. Wearing sunscreen and a hat are recommended ways to reduce your skin cancer risk. If there’s family history of cancer, you can use a vitamin D supplement to maintain adequate levels. You can easily get your vitamin D level checked by a blood test to know if you are vitamin D deficient. Based on the results you may need to have a high dose vitamin D supplement to increase your levels or a lower dose supplement to maintain an adequate existing vitamin D level. Ask your GP for further personalised advice. Have a fab summer!

Dear Dr. De La Flor I seem to have a leaky bladder and it’s getting worse despite medication. Any advice? Cheers, Sue

Dr. De La Flor

Dear Sue, An overactive bladder (also called urge incontinence) should not have to cramp your lifestyle. In order to reduce the need to go often or suddenly to the bathroom, try some of the following tips: Be sure you’re not drinking too much - or too little. Drinking too little sets you up for constipation, which can lead to urinary tract infections. Not drinking enough also creates concentrated urine, which is itself a bladder irritant. The number one beverage for the bladder is plain water. Try to identify and avoid your trigger food(s). Some top offenders are: artificial sweeteners, cof fee (and caffeine generally, including tea), alcohol, chocolate, tomatoes, red peppers, spicy foods, acidic foods (citrus) or high-sugar foods. Get the knack. The muscles that help hold back urine until it’s convenient to go are both involuntar y and voluntar y. There’s a moment before coughing, sneezing, lifting a box or dealing with other physical stressors when you can consciously tighten the urethra to help hold back the urine. This manoeuvre is called “the knack.” Because the knack manoeuvre is a voluntar y movement, with practice you can teach yourself to do it at the moment you’ll need it. Right before you cough or lift something (or whatever movement you know creates your urinary leakage), consciously contract your pelvic floor muscle. Do this often enough, and the habit will become a reflex! Kegel exercises. Kegel´s build the muscles used to control urine flow. You can identify the muscles involved by stopping urine flow midstream. Do them regularly when you’re not urinating. It’s recommended to hold the contraction for

a slow count of five, then relaxing for a count of ten. Repeat five times for one set. Gradually work up to ten sets per day or on alternate days depending on the severity of the ‘leakage’ Visualise a delay. Since it’s partly a signalling problem between the brain and the body, try using your mind to forestall an urgent need to urinate. Decide on a powerful mental image that you can turn to whenever you desire a distraction from urinating. Nicotine matters due to the irritation on the bladder lining and smoking tends to produce chronic coughing, which triggers leakage. Treat your bladder the same, seven days a week. Overactive bladder symptoms worsen at night because during the day, the person simply doesn’t use the bathroom often enough, sometimes because of work/ schedule constraints. The result: up all night with what seems like an overactive bladder. Put physiology first! R e v i e w p re s c r i p t i o n medications with your GP. More than 100 dif ferent medications can cause incontinence symptoms. Best wishes! Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. /Family Doctor.

MEMORY “

You are told a lot about your education, but some beautiful, sacred memory, preserved since childhood, is perhaps the best education of all. If a man carries many such memories into life with him, he is saved for the rest of his days. And even if only one good memory is left in our hearts, it may also be the instrument of our salvation one day.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky. One good memory … I’m sure you and I do have a myriad of fond and empowering ones in store. Our memory is like a 24-hour library. It’s always available for us to access. Our memory should be wisely used daily as a springboard for our fights, for our down moments, for those trying times. Our memory can help us realise how many obstacles we’ve overcome, or how many goals we’ve achieved, or how much affection we’ve shared, or how many kisses we’ve given, or how many acts of kindness we’ve spread on our walk through the adventure of life.

Resolution: Let’s try to spend a few minutes daily pondering how we use our memory. It is a phenomenal tool, sometimes too rusty, that can offer us shelter on rainy days, overpowering negative emotions, setbacks and frustrations with the myriad of empowering memories and big “little” things achieved. To play our memories to our advantage isn’t fruitless selfishness but a way of increasing the quality of our life. By the way, feel free to add me as a friend on facebook (Manuel De La Flor or m_delaflor@hotmail.com). Talk to you in a couple of weeks.

The Big three – part 2

C

arbohydrates · What are the big three? I am talking about the three macro nutrients: Carbohydrates, Fats, and Protein.

What are carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are organic molecules typically classified according to their structure. And, structurally speaking, there are two types of carbohydrates simple and complex. Every macronutrient needs to get broken down by the human body so that we can use it where we need it. In the last edition I mentioned an example. Imagine you buy an old house and you want to use the building blocks from the living room to build a wall in the garden area. You first need to break down the living room before you can eventually use

the building blocks for something else. While it is good to have protein (amino acids) quickly available you almost never want carbohydrates to be quickly available. But first let’s go into more detail about the structures before we talk about the retention rates. Simple carbohydrates are smaller, more easily processed molecules and they’re named things like mono (single) and di (double) saccharides since they contain either one or two sugar molecules linked together. Complex carbohydrates, on the other hand, are called polysaccharides since they have more than one sugar group linked together.

Carbohydrate Classification

Monosaccharides

Oligosaccharides

Polysaccharides

Glucose Fructose Galactose Mannose Ribose

Sucrose Maltose Lactose Trehalose

Digestible: Starch and dextrins Glycogen Partially digestible: Insulin Raffinose Indigestible: Cellulose Pectin

Monosaccharides are the simplest form of carbohydrate and cannot be broken down any further since they contain only one sugar group. Oligosaccharides

consist of short chains (di-, tri-, etc) of monosaccharide units all put together. And polysaccharides are long chains of monosaccharide units all put together.

bite at the cherry if you have used these accounts to save to buy, construct or reform your home, up to and including the total limit allowed of course. The money has to have been deposited in a bank or savings bank and in a separate account, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be in a ‘cuenta vivienda’ account. All withdrawals must be used exclusively for the purchase construction or reform of the home.

f you didn’t buy your home on or before 31 December, 2010, you will no longer automatically be able to offset your interest payments on your new home against your tax. This is the last tax year when all home owners will be able to apply for a rebate for interest paid. However the construction, extension or rehabilitation of your home can also attract tax benefits as well as the money deposited in ‘cuentas vivienda’. This includes work you may have carried out in your home to make it more suitable and comfortable for a disabled person and for the first time, in this year’s tax return (i.e. tax year 2010) changes made to your home to make it more energy efficient may also make you entitled to a rebate. Before you count on the tax rebate for works undertaken you must be sure that it comes within the heading of ‘habitual home’ as defined by the tax office.

Rehabilitation

To be able to claim a rebate for rehabilitation the total of the works must be for at least 25 per cent of the

Home conversions for the disabled

value of your home. Some people buy cheap, older properties, with the intention of modernising them, thinking that they can reclaim part of the amount spent from their tax, but not all rehabilitation works qualify.

Construction

If you have taken advantage of an off plan purchase to take advantage of the tax benefits before the door closed at the beginning of the year, you must make sure that the work and the purchase is completed within four years of the first investment or

not only will you lose future benefits, but you will have to repay those you have already received.

Extension

An extension is an increase of the habitable area on a permanent basis all year round. If you build, buy a neighbouring property or one immediately above or below yours to increase the habitable area of your home, you can claim this against your tax.

Home savings accounts

This will give you a double fiscal

PALM GARDENS ·AMARILLA GOLF·

To benefit from this additional rebate, the works must be considered necessary for the accessibility and sensory communication of the disabled person in a decent and adequate manner. For more information on what may be covered and for the appropriate certificate once the work has been done contact IMSERSO.

Energy deductions

There is a new benefit this year for those who have improved the installations of electricity, water, gas or other utilities. You may be able to deduct up to 10 per cent of the amount spent.

Helpful hints for around the house

Sounds good W

hilst it comes to your surround sound or home theatre system, the quality of your speakers can truly make or break the whole experience.

First-class quality speakers are one of, if not, the most imperative components when it comes to your home theatre and surround sound system. You ought to take action from the very beginning in order to make sure that you are not getting poor quality speakers for your entertainment system. Whether your surround sound system is going to be used for your television viewing, home theatre, music enjoyment, or to boost your gaming experience on your personal computer, the superiority of the speakers will have a massive bearing on how much you take pleasure in your system. There are a small number of guidelines you can stick to when making your decisions regarding speakers that will help you assemble improved buying decisions in order to get higher quality speakers (resources permitting of course, even if I recommend putting off the purchase until you can put aside sufficient funds rather than purchasing inferior quality because it is within your price scale). There are many diverse types of speaker systems. Speakers that have received THX official recognition are by and large your top of the line speakers. They will have very insignificant distortion and a good clear sound. If you can get your hands on a set of these and they fit inside your funds constraints, I highly

suggest going with them. The sound still ought to be the fundamental deciding aspect when deciding on speakers and quite frankly you will have to hear the sound for yourself in order to make your mind up which sound you prefer. Speakers, like everything, are always a question of personal taste. You can hear many separate speakers and a number of people find that they all sound identical while others feel that the amount of distortion in a few is just horrendous and still others hold poor quality music responsible for the sounds they hear in the speakers. The truth is that there are different determinations for quality and everyone has their own preferences and things that are important to them when listening to music, and things that they feel can be sacrificed. There are various things you can do in order to ensure that you are receiving a fine quality set of speakers for your surround sound system. Initially, you must listen and make certain that the high sounds do not seem unclear or as though they were being made within a tin can. You ought to also confirm that the midrange sounds are clear and resonant. What’s more, you must make certain that the speakers are not trying to carry

By : Steve Procta

out the work of the subwoofer. It is there for a purpose and has a job other speakers in the set shouldn’t be trying to do (if they are, as a rule it indicates problems with the subwoofer). Balance is important in a set of speakers. You do not need one speaker overshadowing the others. If the music sounds too shrill or the central range notes are overwhelming, this is most likely not the system for your needs. It is recommended that you try the sound systems you are considering with assorted types of music and media (particularly if you will be using your surround sound system for a home theatre or gaming system in addition to music). I always advocate the first 10 minutes of the film Top Gun to try out sound when it comes to home theatres. You should also bring a copy of your preferred CD (as that is what you will probably listen to generally on your system) and perhaps a few additional CDs that show a diversity. Pay attention to how assorted sounds are made on the system and decide according to the best complete system in order to have the most flexibility within your surround sound system.

Community rules & duels

In our continuing series on Community rules we look at the duties of an owner within a community.

Being an owner carries it own responsibilities

An owner is expected to respect and take care when using the general installations and common elements. In essence they are part of the owner’s property and if the apartment is to be sold on the poor state of the installations could work against the owner in the long run. They are also expected to maintain their own property and keep it in good repair. If a repair is needed on the property, which is the responsibility of the community, the owner must allow the work to be carried out. As well as being expected to contribute to general running of the building through community fees, the owner may have to, at times, pay further amounts of money to the reserve fund. The law dictates that the reserve fund on a community should be at least five per cent of its last ordinary budget. If an owner of a property is not resident in Spain or does not live on the community on a full time basis they need to notify the administrator of their normal residential address so any correspondence can be sent on. If they fail to notify the administrator

19

they could find something has happened on the community that they do not agree to, but if the administer has no contact address he only has to place the communication on the notice board in the communal grounds – this under the law is considered fair warning. The administrator is also only obliged to send registered notification within Spain. And finally if you purchased your property and the community fees were not paid up to date the debt will automatically become yours as you should have checked the state of affairs before signing on the dotted line, however the debt to be claimed can only be from the current year and the year gone by . Likewise if you sell your property you should inform the administrator as soon as possible. If you fail to do so, you will remain jointly responsible with the new owner for any charges incurred after the transfer. Even though you will be able to claim reimbursement, this could turn out to be a highly encumbering task.

Empty properties he Minister for DevelopT ment, José Blanco, announced in the Senate the importance of the rental market to end the excess number of empty properties in Spain.

Blanco was just about to set off on a tour of six European countries in an attempt to interest foreign investors in buying some of the unsold properties. The empty housing stock in Spain is not diversified and is, “very concentrated” he claimed, estimating that around 70 per cent of the properties for sale were people’s second or holiday homes. “It’s not easy to do anything about this stock,” he admitted, affirming that there is a potential demand for homes in many areas of the country, but there are no properties in those areas or, because of the difficult financial situation, credit is not being given to possible purchasers. This is why the Ministry is recommending rental and the rehabilitation of empty properties as the axis on which their housing policy is being built, something the Housing Ministry calls, “social and not speculative politics”. Half the properties which are being built at the moment in Spain are under the protected regime, the local council provides the land

The Minister for Development José Blanco

very cheaply and the purchase price or rental is subsequently a lot lower, but there are restrictions on resale. The European Investment Bank and the Official Spanish Credit Institute have put aside €800 million for protected property rental. In addition under the youth emancipation scheme, 270,000 young people have been able to rent themselves a home by

claiming the €210 a month help from the government. Blanco claimed that it was easier now than six years ago to get a home and that 85 per cent of the housing initiatives were financed by the public sector. He asserted that families now use only 26 per cent of their income to get a home in comparison with 40 per cent before.

Mortgage

Parliamentary commission fforts to better mortgage E conditions may be on the cards as the Government

has set up a working party to study, “areas of improvement” and in particular conditions which could be considered, “abusive”

Work will start in June and it is expected that they will have their recommendations due in December. Their studies and recommendations will be handed over to the Housing Committee of the Lower House for evaluation and presentation to the Government.

Although nobody has announced that they will recommend that debtors handing over the keys to a property to the finance company will nullify a mortgage debt, the opposition party has taken it for read that the debate will pivot on this issue.

Staying in touch

deliberately not taking care of the installations to force us all into the mobile route? R Downey, Garachico

Dear Editor

I

may be retrograde, but I don’t want a mobile.

The idea of being followed about by a trilling phone is not an attraction, quite the opposite, but it would seem that I will soon have no choice. I needed to make a call the other day whilst I was out. I visited three different telephone boxes before and travelled four kilometres, before I found one that was working. Hopefully the situation is better in the south, because presumably not all tourists will want to pay the disgustingly high roaming charges. Does anybody know if there’s any kind of obligation on the telephone companies to maintain this service? After all they did well enough out of it for years before there was any alternative, or are they

How things change! Dear Editor

W

hen I was a little girl I would have loved a sweet shop within walking distance of my own home, and even when sweets were rationed, our pennies could buy some sweets. Now I’m in my sixties and instead of a cold gloomy Lancashire in winter, I look out at blue skies, sea and sunshine. Within walking distance is a chemist, a private doctors’ complex with a wide range of specialists, a beauty salon and a reflexologist. There is a café

to have a cuppa and a chat and take the weight off my feet! I’ve just had a replacement knee operation and all this seems wonderful to me. I hardly eat sweets now! Amarilla Golf has progressed a lot in that time. A new road takes us up into Chafiras without getting snarled up in the Golf del Sur traffic. Recently we have had new road and amenity signing, courtesy of a grant from the government in Madrid. There are men and women out with their huge plastic bags collecting up rubbish and giving the whole area a lift and tidier appearance. A new park has been installed and patches of planting make the area far more pleasant to live in. I have been a resident in Tenerife for four years and in our house since it was finished in 2007. We still live in the same house, but have been given a new address, which confuses everyone. I do feel sorry for the postmen, but of course this must come as a European directive! I live in Calle Bejeque, which used to be Palm Ridge and we have a new number. Someone

from the town hall came one day and just put up a new number for us, no warning, or request for permission, but the old one still was on the wall too and had to be used for ages as the paperwork was not finalised with the ayuntamiento and the numbering wasn’t legal! After four years I’ve learned to laugh at the peculiarities of the Canarian way of doing things. It does take time to settle the emotions leaving family and friends, but phone calls can be made much cheaper than we originally thought possible, email and letters keep ever yone in touch. Joy of joys my grandchildren have now got email addresses of their own and they write to me. Ryanair has started to fly from the south and happily for me goes to Stansted near our children and grandchildren. I certainly wouldn’t go back to England because as well as the warmer climate I would miss the warmth and generosity of the local people. Christine Hoban, Amarilla Golf

Pastimes

Aries: (March 21 - April 20)

You’ll be absorbed in your own concerns but may experience a delightful closeness with someone special. The mood will be intense and you’ll find yourself involved in a serious conversation about money. Be careful when you’re out, as cosmic tensions fill the air.



Taurus: (April 20 - May 20)

You’ll be talkative and will be looking for a new direction. Try talking things through to get the desired result for your efforts. Fun with friends might bring some financial benefit. You may have an insight, touching on hidden opposition and other people’s secrets.



Gemini: (May 21 - June 20)

Your birthday may turn your life around or push you in a different direction, so get ready for change. The mood is all about your life and how you live it. What do you really want? Get out in the fresh air and clear your head.



Cancer: (June 21 - July 22)

Spruce up your image or add some sensitivity to personal relationships. A friend becomes even closer, but you’ll need to have some time on your own. Take a little extra time to watch what is going on around you and consider all aspects.



Leo: (July 23 - August 22)

Communicate well and arrive on time for appointments. People will be watching you, so smile! There’s a sharp shift of mood and finances will be in the frame. Friends and group activities will bring you what you’re looking for, especially if it’s romance.

Aquarius: (January 20 - February 18)

Everyone wants to be your friend. Money issues will appear, and need to be dealt with. If you’re finding it hard to get your hands on some cash, maybe there’s something going on you can’t actually see. Ask some questions and monitor proceedings.

It’s a tedious time but just do what’s necessary. You might be feeling down in the dumps, but you’ll still feel the urge to have fun. Someone new and interesting appears in your life but the mood changes as a financial secret is uncovered.

EDITION 644 :: 03/06/2011 - 16/06/2011 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

Bathroom >

Bathroom design Part I

T

he bathroom is usually one of the two rooms in a house, along with the bedroom, where people go to relax, therefore it is worth spending a little extra time and thought when planning your bathroom and turning it into somewhere where you really can unwind. In this issue we look at traditional and rustic styles.

Traditional

Many people who own property in the Canary Islands

like to reproduce the comfort and style of their home countries. For the traditional English style use plenty of wood - wooden cabinets, panelling, floors, even the toilet seat for that finishing touch. If you are refitting your bathroom there is a selection of traditional style fixtures and fittings available on the islands now but, if not, you can give your cupboards a traditional look by using dark and honey tone wood stains. Plain doors can be made more ornamental by fitting mouldings, available from most DIY stores. Plaster

Traditional fittings are favoured by many

mouldings and cornices can be added to the ceilings, and a wood surround can take the harsh look off the aluminium windows that are often used nowadays. A roll top design bath is a must and faucets tend to be in brass. As polished chrome taps and fittings are the most durable and easiest to clean, many modern faucets with a different finish, including brass, have an underlying layer of chrome. Colours are usually rich and deep - burgundy, deep blues, gold and reds can give the room a luxurious feel - beautiful if you have a large space to work with, but these colours would be overpowering on the walls in a small bathroom, especially if you’ve chosen darker wood fittings, so stick to lighter colour walls – beige perhaps – and bring in these colours sparingly. Accentuate distinctive architectural features (window frames, moldings, etc.) by painting them a

lighter or darker shade than the walls. Detail is the key – take away the square-ness of your bathroom by adding curves, mouldings, sculpted, ornate pottery and classically formed brassware and accessories.

of replanting. Holes large enough to encompass the roots of the plants should be dug from the soil. When placing the plants in these holes, gently firm the soil around the roots. Remember not to crowd the plants or place against the side of the container. After finishing planting, the soil needs to be moistened and the lid placed on a closed terrarium, and checked frequently for the appearance of condensation. If there are large water drops on the glass, then leave the lid open for a while. A completely enclosed terrarium requires little or no

watering. The addition of water is only necessary if no condensation accumulates on the glass. If water is needed, add a small amount at a time. An open terrarium should be watered as a you would water a regular house plant. The growth rate is dependent on the amount of light the plants get. The less light, the slower the growth. It is best to place a terrarium somewhere with the minimal amount of light that the plants will tolerate. In too much light, a closed terrarium may build up to a toxic level, steaming the plants. For further information visit your local garden centre.

Rustic

The rustic style, like traditional, makes use of wood but is much less formal. False beams, pine panelling and wicker work can all give the room that sort of throwntogether and cosy feel that you often find in farms and cottages. Panels of bricks can be bought here, are fitted relatively easily and can add to the ambience. This look has a natural feel to it so using colours such as terracotta, deep yellows, browns and green all add to that ‘earthy’ feel. Fabrics are often checked or floral and net curtains are still very popular. Country scenes in old wooden frames can add to the rustic look.

Terrarium >>

Do it yourself Terrarium

A

terrarium is a collection of plants grown in a single container, either completely or mostly enclosed. These miniature gardens are an excellent place to grow plants that require a high degree of humidity. Gardens grown in a terrarium are of a temporary nature and are not designed to last for ever. It is not uncommon for plants to grow too large or to eventually die. Containers designed for use as a terrarium can be purchased in some plant shops and garden centres. Those

purchased in plant shops often have plants already growing, and make ideal presents. To create your own terrarium the container must be large enough to hold a minimum of three inches of soil and should be roomy enough to hold three to five plants without excessive crowding. Drainage may be provided through the use of a one to one-and-ahalf-inch layer of coarse sand or pebbles, which are placed in the container bottom. The addition of charcoal will help to keep the soil from developing an unpleasant odour. The soil used in the planting of these containers should be

porous but low in fertility, as the function of the container is the maintenance of the plants not in their growth. A good soil mixture is one part commercial potting soil to one part peat moss or vermiculite. The soil should be sterilised for terrarium use, as high humidity will encourage the growth of any fungi or other organisms in the soil. To sterilise soil, moisten and place in an oven roasting bag. Bake for half hour at 200 degrees F. The correct selection of the plants for your terrarium is vital to its lifespan. Small plants of varieties that don’t grow quickly are the best

choice, however all of the plants chosen should have the same growth needs to ensure best growth, as all plants will share the same lighting and water requirements. No special tools are required for planting an open mouth terrarium. Narrow mouthed terrariums will require specialised tools to get the plant down into the terrarium and into the correct position. A great deal of dexterity is required and beginners are recommended to start with the open mouth terrarium. The arrangements of the plants should be decided before starting the task

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 644 :: 03/06/2011 - 16/06/2011

As you might imagine, each subtype of carbohydrate has different effects in the human body due to its structure and what food it comes from. These effects are largely due to the following: 1. How quickly and/or easily the carbohydrate molecule is digested and absorbed. 2. Which other nutrients are provided along with the carbohydrate source (fat and protein slow down the digestion and/or absorption) of the carbohydrate source. As you know, carbohydrates can vary greatly in texture, sweetness, rate of digestion, and degree of absorption.

Why is carbohydrate intake so important? Carbohydrate consumption can alter energy dynamics and disease progression in the body. As mentioned before, all carbohydrates we consume are digested into monosaccharides or simple sugars (building blocks). It’s just that the ‘healthier carbs’ are digested and absorbed slowly while the ‘non-healthy’ carbs are digested very quickly. And this digestion and absorption is influenced by the type of carbohydrate consumed, enzyme action in the mouth and gut, and other dietary factors. Once absorbed, these monosaccharides/sugars go to the liver to fill energy stores. After that they enter the bloodstream and venture out to the other cells of the body. This is when insulin is released to handle this ‘sugar load’ on the body. (I already wrote an article about insulin response. You can find that on the Island Connections website). Carbohydrates are first and foremost a source of immediate energy for all of your body’s cells!

Gucci Guilty for Him, aromatic companion of popular female edition Gucci Guilty from 2010, is an intense and individual contemporary concoction which provokes as it seduces. It is a heady cocktail of invigorating Italian lemon and mandarin with crushed green leaves – evocative of sap rising – and a defiant punch of pink pepper, carefully designed for the charismatic alpha male.

Spanish fashion firm Mango have started an initiative which allows their customers to exchange Mango clothes for new garments and get a 20 per cent discount. To join this programme, you need to request your provisional Mango for Mango card in one of their stores (or online) and make a purchase. You can activate your card online at www.mangoformango.com, and within three weeks you will receive your definitive card by mail.

After this, you can return any item bought from Mango since you joined the scheme, up to a year from its purchase date, even if it has been worn or belongs to another season’s range, and purchase a new one. One per cent of the value of returned articles will be donated to the Fundación Vicente Ferrer, who will use the funds for the construction of new homes in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. To give the project a kick-start, Mango are paying for the first five homes.

The herbal freshness of lavender coils around an aphrodisiac cardamom note – at once stimulating and entrancing – on an unexpectedly tender bed of orange flower and neroli. The patchouli which is the hallmark of all Gucci fragrances, is married with cedar and sandalwood gleaming with amber to create a robustly earthy, yet suggestively exotic sensuality of a profound masculinity. The effect is both remarkable and uncompromisingly alluring.

Layla is a female elderly Yorkshire Terrier. She is 10 years old, so looking for someone to care for her in her old age, would suit an older family/person. She still has a lot of life and runs around. She has been handed in to K9, as no longer wanted by her owner, such a shame after such a long time.

B

etween the ages of seven and 12 years, signs of maturity in your cat will be practically invisible, but even at this stage, his body cells are not being renewed as efficiently as before. It is at this age that we should take the first measures to assure our best friend a better quality of life as he gets older, and be aware of his new needs. Beyond the age of seven, it is very important that his ideal weight is maintained and that he continues to take enough exercise. This is extremely important as life expectancy is significantly reduced if your animal is overweight. During this first stage of maturity, his periods of activity could well become shorter and you may begin to see a deterioration in the condition of his fur, especially around the nose and eyes.

Once your cat reaches the age of 12, he really is a senior feline, and this is when the changes provoked by the passing of time become much more apparent. As his trusted human, you need to take even stronger measures to maintain his health, and help him to take advantage of all the vitality that his maturing body will allow. At this stage, many cats will still not show visible signs of ageing, but the majority do need extra care to maintain an optimum state of health. When you call your cat, he may begin to respond more slowly, and he will probably become less active and more sedentary, a bit of a couch potato. Keep an eye on his mobility, and endeavour to make life easier for him, as his joints are now more sensitive. Encourage him to play regularly, provide a step to help him to leap up to his

favourite windowsill. A cat of more than 12 years could develop dental problems and have a tendency to lose weight, because his muscle mass and his capacity to absorb nutrients have both begun to diminish. Maturity is a time when your cat will continue to give you the greatest pleasure and unconditional love. Make sure he knows that he is loved. Buy (or make) simple toys to encourage him to be active, play with him, give him an appropriate diet to suit his age and circumstances, and of course lots of love. Have his teeth checked regularly, and ask your vet for advice about a diet to suit his circumstances. With the right level of care and nutrition, there is no reason why your your cat shouldn’t reach a ripe old age!

Picture this ne of Tenerife’s great photographers and a regular contributor to Island Connections, Phil Crean, has just completed his first book, Spirit of Carnaval. The photographs in the book capture the spirit of that wonderful annual festival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, behind the scenes, on the stages and on the streets. Phil told us why this was such a special event as a photographer, and why it was the one that he chose as the subject for his first book. “The atmosphere is something exceptional. I have never experienced such a huge event where everyone is so involved in having a good time and where there is such an explosion of colour, music and dance. Given that it’s such a huge fun event, is he surprised that perhaps not many people outside Spain, or even the Canary Islands, know about it? “I would say that most non-Spaniards have heard of Rio and the Venice carnivals, but how many know such a fantastic event happens here in Tenerife is something I can’t tell. It should be promoted and if my collection of photographs can help to inform people about it then I’m delighted.”

The collection in Spirit of Carnaval tell as much about the people taking part as those elected as Queens of their respective ages. He has really captured the essential ‘people’ of the Carnaval. “More than anything that is what comes across to me. The people who spend a lot of their free time to create the routines, practice their music, and make incredibly intricate and elaborate costumes are what makes Carnaval what it is and I hope I’ve captured some element of that magic essence in my photographs of them.” The book, which would grace any coffee table and make a terrific gift as well, can be ordered at http:// www.blurb.com/bookstore/ detail/2188775. The publishers offer a print on demand service so the book is printed and sent out after ordering. At the moment it is not available in shops but if demand is there Phil can supply copies to shops. And his favourite photo? “Very hard to say, the cover shot is one because it captures a moment where the girl looks both part of and separate from the huge costume, as if it hasn’t yet sunk in what she’s about to do. Also the Laurel & Hardy boys, they appear as if this was a perfectly normal situation for them to be in, which makes it a little surreal, or ‘Air mi madre’ scene for it’s beautiful absurd humour!”

Juanes, who specialises in Spanish pop/rock music, has sold around 49 million copies of his discs around the world and is famous for his hits A Dios le pido, La camisa negra, Me enamora and many more. Tickets are now on sale for both events, at the usual online outlets: El Corte Inglés, Caja Directa de Cajacanarias, Generaltickets, Cajatique, Ticketmaster and Servicaixa, or in person from Discos Noda, Camisoteca and C.C. Siete Palmas.

The Sloop was officially opened on June 9th 1986. Faye Main, from Liscard, purchased it as an empty unit at a time when there was no competition, before Puerto Colón was even born. With great customer service coupled with super value, she has been able to continue this successful business for the last 25 years. Being a smaller bar, it allows the staff to offer a personal touch, where the customer is foremost, which is probably why The Sloop is one of the longest freehold owned businesses in the south of Tenerife. They present a variety of entertainment during the course of the week, for example on Wednesdays they provide

a free buffet followed by a general music quiz hosted by Rita. On Sundays there is a barbecue and quiz from 4pm onwards. A variety of music is always played during the day and late evenings, so come and experience the fun in The Sloop. The anniversary celebration and benefit on June 9th will start at about 1.30pm and throughout the afternoon many acts will be coming. There will be lots of wonderful prizes to win, donated by local businesses, and acts appearing include host Katy Kennedy plus Mike Edwards, Cy Benson, System X, Simon King and many more. Do come along and support this event.

Quality product

Papas con mojo

Can there be anything more Canarian than the famous wrinkled potatoes with their selection of sauces? Now a new initiative has taken the first step for the old and original varieties of potatoes to have a protected status guaranteeing their Canarian origin. The quality control measure has already come into effect in Spain and is now waiting for the EU to do the paperwork, for the protection to become Europe wide. Once rubber stamped, it will mean that only potatoes from the Canaries, produced under quality controlled conditions, will be able to market themselves as Papas Antiguas de Canarias. In the same State Bulletin, the Canarian plátano (species of banana) Cavendish also received national protection status.

Restaurante Gran Reserva

A

steak house and fish specialist, with prime cuts of a variety of meats and the best and freshest that the sea can offer, chargrilled and brought to the table in a range of standard, favourite or imaginative sauces and accompanied by seasonal vegetables in their prime. It’s a simple formula, top quality produce prepared and served by professionals. Soups and starters are priced from €3.90 and included favourites such as stuffed mushrooms and grilled Canarian cheeses with coriander sauce as well as carpaccio or mussels and prawns. Salads including the restaurant’s version of Caesar and Waldorf are priced from €5.75. Meat and fish main choices start at just €8.85. Meat dishes include various cuts of chicken, pork, veal, sirloin, duck, lamb and fillet steak prepared as you wish and served with a variety of sauces depending on your choice. The mouth watering selection includes Roquefort; mango ginger and shrimp; tomato, onion and herbs; red wine, peppers, garlic and mushroom, demiglace with bacon and smoked salmon flamed with vodka and Béarnaise with asparagus and prawn. If you like a pepper and chilli mix you can choose to have your meat prepared with white, black, pink or green pepper. Specialities include beef stroganoff and steak in béarnaise and port sauce and there is a mixed grill option or for those with a big appetite, the club steak 400-500g of prime beef with mushroom, onions and barbecue sauce. The fish and shellfish selection offers white fish, tuna, an impressive mixed platter, scampi, sea bass, gilt head bream, Dover sole, salmon, king prawns, scallops and sea devil tail (a kind of large skate). Preparation options include: baked in salt; en papillote; with peppers, garlic and white wine; fresh herbs; lemon cream with asparagus and spinach; mild curry sauce; peppers and pineapple and brandy cream, peppers and asparagus. Smaller portions are available on the children’s menu which offers all their favourites like chicken nuggets, fish fingers, meat balls, pizza and spaghetti Bolognese at €5.75. There’s an ample wine list covering all the major wine producing areas in Spain, Mateus

Rosé and French champagne as well as Spanish cava, sangria and champagne sangria, or a house wine at just €11.75. We chose a full bodied Gran Feudo reser va 2005 from Navarre which complemented our selections perfectly. The clam chowder was quite the best we have tried outside New England, thick and creamy with finely minced and whole clams, the garlic bread was thin slices of French bread, cr unchy with toasting and served with just enough olive oil and crushed garlic. To cleanse the palate between courses we chose the Ensalada Gran Reserva, the best of the kitchen garden with sliced smoked goat’s cheese and banana. Our starters were: crunchy and tender chanterelle mushrooms with a fine coating of breadcrumbs and no sign of excess oil; mussels Costa Brava with a rich fresh tomato and garlic sauce, but our favourite was a light, tuna fish carpaccio. Wafer thin slices of fresh tuna covered with chopped peppers and onion and marinated with pepper, sea salt and fresh lemon juice. A mixed kebab of veal, chicken and bacon was served in barbecue sauce with a swirl of pureed carrots and potato and a smaller kebab or roasted al dente vegetables. The palate could easily distinguish the individual spices and ingredients in the obviously home made exquisite sauce. The fillet steak with Jack Daniels sauce came just as ordered, pink in the middle and char grilled on the outside and the flavours of the Jamaican allspice and peppers were set off beautifully by the faint hint of Jack Daniels. Third choice and favourite was the sea bass in salt. It was expertly opened and filleted by the waiter at the table. That level of professionalism is rare these days. The flesh of the fish was soft and delicate and as moist and succulent as could be. Desserts, if you have room after such generous portions,

45

star t at €3.70 and included on the night baked apples and pancakes, but we chose crema catalana and flambéed banana. Crema catalana can best be described as a light, set custard with a crunchy grilled sugar topping and this was very light indeed, perfect after a large meal. The flambéed bananas, butter y and redolent of the caramel sauce and the flamed Gran Marnier they had been cooked in were tangy, delicious and very moreish. Finish your meal in style with one of their superb selection of liqueur coffees and top brand liqueurs, brandies and whiskies. Booking at this amazing restaurant is essential if you hope to get a seat on the roomy terrace especially on busy weekend nights.

Katy column

Hi everyone, I

’d like to thank those of you who responded to last issue’s column about Carol, the entertainer who has suffered a stroke. In particular I’d like to thank the Eldon House Pub in Playa Paraiso. This tiny pub rallied round, giving me their jar for their tips and collections for any needy person, which contained over €70. Lynn and Steve also organised a food collection. They asked their regulars to donate a can or some dried goods, as the couple is at the moment without any income. To my amazement, they handed me five huge carrier bags of dried and canned goods, as well as two carrier bags full of fresh foods. Such kindness from such a tiny bar left me speechless, and when I took their donations to Carol and Eliot, they were moved to tears.

Phil and Fay from the Sloop Bar will be celebrating their 25th year in the bar, on June 9th and are putting on a show during the afternoon and well into the evening, and the proceeds will go to Carol and Eliot. Kris Richards will be setting up his gear so any artists who would like to appear either in the afternoon or the evening, give me a ring on 616 110 930. I was fascinated to read in one of the daily papers recently that a planet outside our solar system is the first to be declared habitable as we understand the concept. It is 20 light years away and is named exoplanet Gilese 581d in the constellation Libra, is the fifth planet from the star and the third one to be discovered in the system. It was discovered by a team of French physicists. Around each star in the galaxy where planets orbit, there is a “goldilocks zone”, where planets like Venus, Earth and Mars remain as rocky planets. The gas giants are always at the outer edge of a solar system as, when the sun originally bursts into life, the rocky particles clump together to form planets, while the lighter gasses travel farther away from their sun to form the gas giants, since gasses are lighter and thus travel further than rocks. They say that the sky will be red as the star itself is a thought to be a red dwarf. The gravity they estimate will be twice that of earth. I find myself awestruck by the intelligence of these

men and women who work out such mathematical variances in the cosmos, and wish I’d stuck in at physics when I was at school so that I could understand a little of the processes they use to work out such measurements . It seemed so dry and pointless to most of us then, but I see the value now when so many riveting and fascinating discoveries await us all. Earth’s gravity is approximately 1G, but the new planet is calculated at 2G. And therefore what would it mean to humans if we ever managed to cross the 20 light years distance between us and land there? (And remember that in our earlier space craft Voyager it would take 300,000 years to cross that distance.) Well if we discovered a species similar to our own, they would look very different to us. At 0.5 G we would be very tall and thin, at 1G we are as we are now. But at 2G, we would have much thicker legs and trunks so that we could cope with the pressure. The thinking today is that planets do not need to be “earthlike” to support life. Imagine if some alien explorers had discovered earth in the early days of its development, they would have seen life, but possibly only bacterial life in the primordial gloop that was the ocean at that time. Would they have realised that we could evolve over billions of years into the intelligent beings we are today? Or had they arrived at the time of the dinosaurs, what would they have thought of our earth? There is so much to discover in the universe, and I can’t imagine mankind would ever want to stop exploring it. It’s up to all of us to try to keep our planet safe and habitable, each in our own small way. We live in a wonderful world, and such kindness as I have described at the start of this column, shows that most human beings treasure their humanity, and strive to make life better for those who for one reason or another, are suffering hardship. Until next time, take care of yourselves, but especially, take care of each other. .........

The best Travel Assistance L

ínea Directa, a company specialising in car, motorbike and home insurance for foreign customers residing in Spain, offers the very best Travel Assistance Service in the insurance sector entirely in English and German.

What does Línea Directa offer me if my car is immobilised as a result of a breakdown, accident or theft? Línea Directa offers you one of the following options provided that the vehicle cannot be repaired on the same day so that you can continue on your journey: • Accommodation in a four star hotel not exceeding a period of four nights. • Getting you back home or if it costs less, even transporting you to your intended destination

• Offering you a courtesy vehicle with unlimited mileage for 24 hours.

This cover is so extensive that it even includes transporting its customers’ pets; for example, in the case of customers taking advantage of the cover offered by their policy when needing to return home, Línea Directa would ensure that their pet is also transported back to the customer’s home.

ritish residents should urge holiday makers in Spain to take out travel insurance

Overstaying their welcome? Drinking all your beer? Not paying for meals? Hosting friends and family from overseas can always cause stress, but potentially more serious and costly problems are avoidable – if residents remind guests to make simple travel preparations. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office called on British expats in Spain to urge their visitors to take out comprehensive travel insurance before they come to stay. The call comes as new research reveals that young people are more likely to spend their money on a present for their host than take out a travel insurance policy. A survey commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office shows that a third of people failed to take out travel insurance the last time they

Make sure your guests are covered in case of emergencies

stayed with family and friends overseas. More than three quarters (77 per cent) of those saying they are visiting friends and family this year said that saving money is a key factor in their decision. However, a lack of comprehensive travel insurance cover is a false economy and guests could face serious financial difficulty if they need medical treatment or lose valuable possessions. Over a third (39 per cent) of British guests have relied

on their hosts when things have gone wrong during their trip. British expats hosting visitors have faced a range of problems from taking guests to hospital when they fall ill to providing financial help. Maria Leng, British Consul in the Canary Islands said, “when friends or family visit, it’s natural for them to feel at ease and not prepare in the same way as they would for other holidays. But things can quickly become very stressful

if your guests end up in a tricky situation and lack travel insurance. So if you’re asking guests to bring out your favourite teabags or newspaper, ask them to get travel insurance as well, and save yourself and them from what can otherwise be difficult and expensive situations.” Residents can tell guests to visit www.fco.gov.uk/travel or the ‘UKinSpain’ website for more information.

LIONS RECYCLING FOR SIGHT

Changing lives, one pair at a time

In just about any household, one can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used. “I’ll just keep these as a spare pair”, sound familiar? But actually they’ll go into the drawer, never to see the light of day again. Did you know that the same pair of spectacles can change another person’s life? They would be just one of the 153 million reasons why Lions recycle for sight. According to The World Health Organisation, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism). Most of these vision impairments are quickly diagnosed and easy to treat with corrective lenses. Still, millions of people in developing nations are pushed deeper into poverty simply because they don’t have glasses. They can’t learn, because reading is difficult. They can’t work to the best of their ability, because they can’t see clearly. For children, clear vision means a better education, healthier development and a better quality of life. For adults, it means greater employment opportunity and economic strength. For seniors it means less dependence on others. The International Lions sponsor a worldwide collection and distribution of used spectacles to third world countries where the recipients are not interested in the fashion statement of the frames, but in the lenses to let them have sight. As part of that worldwide effort Tenerife Sur Lions Club are looking to collect unwanted spectacles through their charity shops and other participating supporters. Los Cristianos opticians San Clemente Opticas in Avenida de Suecia kindly agreed to ask their clients to donate their old and unwanted spectacles to this effort and quickly filled the Lions collecting box. Tenerife Sur Lions Club President, Norman Goodall MBE was on hand to receive them and express grateful thanks to the staff, Laura, Pepe and Ana on behalf of the Lions and for those who will ultimately benefit.

Alonso in new Fiat 500 campaign

The advertising campaign for the new Fiat 500 Twin Air features Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso.

The all electric Renault Twizy

I

n TV and radio spots as well as the press, the adverts are based on the idea that you don’t have to have a big powerful car to enjoy driving. That it is enough to get into the new Fiat 500 Twin Air and discover how its 85CV turbo engine, compact dimensions and sporty looks can turn the most everyday trips like supermarket shopping into a sporty driving experience. It’s an amusing concept, and a far cry from a Ferrari, watch out for it on your TV.

R

enault has invented a new way of getting around town: 100 per cent electric, the Twizy is high on style, novel in its format and perfect for safe and secure urban travel.

Twizy will go on sale at the end of 2011 at prices comparable with those of a threewheeled scooter, beginning at ₏6,990 tax included for the 5hp motor model. The 17hp version in the Urban finish will retail at ₏7,690, and the Technic at ₏8,490. Twizy customers will lease the battery. The monthly subscription in Europe for the 5hp motor will be ₏45 tax included and ₏49 for the 17hp motor, for an annual distance travelled of 7,500km. Twizy gets around town safely and rapidly thanks to its novel proportions and ultracompact dimensions. About as long as a motorcycle, Twizy is easier to park than a micro city car and can even be parked at right angles to the kerb. A turning circle of 3.4 metres guarantees great agility. Twizy’s bodywork is a safety cell which encloses the driver and the passenger, and has a driver’s airbag, four-point

seatbelt for the front seat and a three-point seatbelt at the rear. Disc brakes all-round ensure powerful, fade-free braking performance. Twizy also has a coded immobiliser and a steering column lock. Accessories include a flexible wide-opening all-purpose 50-litre bag to supplement the 63.3 litres of built-in storage. It quickly turns into a backpack or holdall thanks to three convenient handles and is secured by the passenger seatbelt to the vehicle structure. Twizy has extra bad weather protection to supplement the deflector panels. As on a scooter, this apron fully encloses the driver’s and passenger’s legs, from the ankles to the waist. Held in place by eight fixing points, ensuring a good seal, it is easily stowed in a soft pouch alongside the driver’s seat. A Parrot audio system allows the driver to listen to music and make telephone calls

safely. It includes an automatic Bluetooth connection, a USB connector, a jack socket and an Apple connector, enabling any portable music player to connect to the vehicle.

Vehicle sales continue to fall

Sensors in the rear bumper make parking manoeuvres easier still. Twizy is compatible with all types of batterycharging points and a full charge takes 3½ hours using a domestic supply. Different adaptors will be made available to connect Twizy to all types of public and private charging points.

The motoring sector has not yet been given a break from the economic crisis. New car registrations fell by 37.5 per cent in the second half of May, with a total of 25,815 new vehicles sold. The fall was caused by a brutal drop in sales to private owners and the end of the tourist season, and hence a drop in sales to car rental companies, according to data supplied by the national association of vehicle sales agencies (GANVAM).

Twizy’s range on the standardised urban cycle is 60 miles. This figure can vary from 34 to 72 miles, depending on driving conditions, driving style and traffic density. Range-related displays enable drivers to get maximum range from their Twizy, including battery charge level, a digital ‘econometer’ displaying instantaneous energy consumption and showing when

regenerative braking is activated, and an onboard computer displaying the remaining range in kilometres. Reservations can be made online now for your Twizy, at www.renault-ze.com. A

deposit of â‚Ź20 will be requested via a secure online payment module. Your nearest Renault dealer is Comercial Igara, and you can find them at AcorĂĄn and Guaza.

G

ANVAM is, however, confident that over the next few months, with summer on the way, vehicle sales to the car rental sector could rise. This would be good news, as car rental accounts for around a quarter of the overall market.

Boxing

Gran Canaria look to next year Fifth place

By George Reed

Can Haye put Klitchko on ice? G

amesmanship and intimidating an opponent has been part of boxing since the sport began.

Like other athletes, many boxers bluff, play tricks, deceive, lie and stir up rivals in order to develop a psychological edge over their opponents, but the master at playing mind games was Muhammad Ali, and many boxers fell victim to his psychological ploy – or gamesmanship as they prefer to call it in the fight game. He would land psychological punches from the moment he signed the fight contract, to intimidate or make an opponent angry before meeting them in the ring, knowing that a frightened or angry fighter loses his focus and concentration. Before the showdown with Joe Frazier in Manila, Ali stated, “it’s gonna be a thriller, a chilla, and a killa, when I get the gorilla in Manila”. And what about the Irish fighter who used a psychological ploy to win a world title? In March 1995, world super middleweight champion Chris Eubanks fell for one hook, line and sinker when his challenger Steve Collins let it be known before the fight that he had been working with Irish hypnotist Tony Quinn. Collins’ gamesmanship paid off, for he took the title from Eubanks on a points’ decision. After the fight, the new world champ stated, “I was never under hypnosis but Chris believed I was, talk about taking the bait – he swallowed the fishing rod as well”. David Haye, Britain’s 30 year-old WBA champion, could be the heavyweight division’s most coherent wind-up merchant since Ali, now that he’s signed the contract to take on Wladimir Klitschko, the holder of two of the other three major heavyweight title belts. Talking of the unification title fight which will take place in Hamburg on July 2nd, David said, “this is going to be a one-sided dog-fight. Me? I’m a British bull terrier, born and bred to fight. And that natural instinct to fight will be what takes Klitschko apart. He’ll get battered and battered again. When I hit him, he’ll freeze like an iceberg. He’ll run for cover and then realise his big brother Vitali is in the corner mopping up the tears with a white towel”. There’s been a two-year feud between David ‘the Haymaker’ and Klitschko and when the two met at a press conference recently, the spat became more of a pantomime, with Klitschko blowing raspberries, and Haye responding by sticking out his tongue and saying, “your momma is fat, the back of her neck looks like a pack of sausages”.

Premiership basketball side Gran Canaria are looking to the new season already just days after being eliminated in the title play-offs to Caja Laboral. Despite losing the series 2-0, coach Pedro Martínez and the club are delighted with the season just ended, not least because much of it was played without stalwart and captain Sitapha Savané, who suffered a serious Achilles injury in early February, missing four full months. The loss, combined with several short-term injuries to key players, could have seen Gran Canaria struggle for the remainder of the season but the side pulled out all the stops to finish a deserved fifth in the ACB league, ahead of clubs with much bigger budgets. Martínez has already set about the task of

Martínez will be hoping Savané is fully fit next season

consolidating his squad for next year and will be pinning his hopes not just on Savané’s return to fitness but on keeping star player Jaycee Carroll, the league’s top points scorer for the second year in a row, averaging just under 20 points per game.

Second division B

Relegation hurts bar business

E

arly victims of Tenerife’s relegation from the second division B are the bars and restaurants in the area around the Heliodoro Rodríguez stadium in Santa Cruz, not to mention the stalls that sell club souvenirs. Already in the final weeks of the season, the drop in gates at home games, caused by the disillusion at the team’s slide, had made itself felt in a drastic fall in takings on match day. Several bars in the area say they expect to lose one of their main sources of income in the form of big crowds, before and particularly after home fixtures. The two local hotels used regularly by visiting teams also admit they have been forced to revise their revenue forecasts downwards as of September. The bleak prospect was summed up appropriately by Luis Alonso, owner of the Club Bar next to the Heliodoro: “Even if there was little to celebrate, due to the many home defeats, at least there

The bars and businesses outside the stadium will suffer

were some people around after games, but even that is unlikely to happen in second division B.

Carroll misses out on MVP

ran Canaria’s Jaycee Carroll missed out on Spanish basketball’s MVP award for this season despite being almost unanimously voted top of the list by coaches in the ACB league. Top scorer for the season (for the second year running), the Wyoming guard was tipped for the ultimate accolade but lost out to Caja Laboral’s Fernando San Emeterio when the votes from fans and sports writers were added into the picture. However, Carroll was far from disappointed with the outcome and expressed his

delight at another wonderful season in the top flight with his club, who made the play-offs again. Carroll was signed last year from Italy and quickly made himself a crowd favourite in Las Palmas with his sharp-shooting, particularly his 3-pointers, which helped Gran Canaria out of many tight spots during games.

ity at Golf Del Sur. Everyone had a wonderful two days of golf and raised €1,000 for San Miguel Lions Club as well. The winners were: Sunday Individual Daryl Holmes, Monday Individual Eric Bengston, and in the team event held over the two days Britannia came out on top.

Deportivo relegation saddens football world

Bruce Urguhart, RIP

a Laguna University Rugby Club, CRULL, was extremely Ltrainer sad to have to announce news of the passing of their Bruce Urquhart. Bruce also spent a brief spell with Ñandu Rugby Club in South Tenerife.

Urquhart died suddenly following a short illness. British, he was known and respected throughout the Canarian rugby world for his talent, his warmth, his humanity and his love of the sport. At the XVIII Rugby 7s tournament a minutes silence was observed in his memory. Player Rafael Muñoz paid homage to the “guiri (foreigner)” who was “Made in England” who trained the side. “Bruce arrived and showed us the noble art of the line outs, how to organise a decent scrum, how to play moves that most of us had only ever seen in ‘pay per view’ television, but above to listen and breathe.. Through his humility, he taught us discipline and order without raising his voice…with him we began to play rugby. Cold head, warm heart, thanks for everything my friend. Rest in peace.”

Ricky Hatton makes one of the presentations (Credit: Gerard Zenou)

world champ Ricky Hatton and European Fat aormer Champion Jamie Moore were both in the audience recent Las Américas Boxing night.

Seven fights were on the cards, five amateur and two semi-professinal. Winners on the night were Landy (EB Povedano) who beat Simon Taggart (Team Nicky Cook), Oscar Luis (Champions Gym) who scored a points victory over Gareth Byron (EB Povedano), Álvaro (EB Povedano) winning on points against Azerat (Gimnasio Noble Arte), Amelio (Puerto de la Cruz) beat Rafael Cuenca (EB Povedano). Richie Hussey (EB Povedano) got the decision against Eleazar(Team Enzo) and in the top fight of the night young Sandro Domínguez(EB Povedano) knocked out Miguel Melián (Orlando Gym) in the first round. To finish a great night’s boxing Ross Gorse (EB Povedano) beat Braulio (Champions Gym).

hile local attention has focused on the disastrous W fortunes of Tenerife and the club’s drop to the semiprofessional ranks of second division B, elsewhere the unexpected relegation of Deportivo La Coruña, one of the country’s best-loved clubs, has captured the headlines.

The Galician side went down in dramatic fashion after losing at home to Valencia on the last day of the season, with results by the other basement sides going against them. The relegation is the first for 20 years for a side that won the hearts of Europe in reaching the Champions League semis in 2004, stunning AC Milan in a magnificent quarter-final comeback. Chairman Agustin Lendoiro said he would spare no effort to return to the top flight next season and organised an all-night meeting within hours of relegation to map out the strategy needed to ensure promotion next summer. Also relegated from the Premiership were Hercules and Almería.

CD Tenerife

By Chris Todd

Credit Gary Hill (www.garyhill-photography.com)

Thank you Nino

Venezuela in a youth tournament. The Messi lookalike has attracted the attention of Sevilla and FC Barcelona but he is likely to be a major player in next season’s promotion push. Against the run of play and just after Tenerife almost made the score 2-0, Ponferradina went straight up the other end to equalise. Acorán taking his chance well with minutes left on the clock. Acorán’s family are all from the Island and the striker was the ‘big hope’ for the blanquiazules roughly ten years ago before he was let go. Perhaps the fury in that decision all those years ago led to the over-celebration by his family watching in the stands of the Heliodoro which raised a few eyebrows.

55

In the final minute Nino was substituted so that he could enjoy the appreciation of the fans, another banner was unfurled which simply read ‘Nino – Eternally Grateful’ as the pint-sized striker took his place in the Tenerife Legends Book. Nino scored 79 times in 165 matches over four seasons (the second best in the blanquiazule’s history) and two of those four seasons CD Tenerife were in the relegation zone. He scored, he inspired, he was energetic when others were sluggish. He was a credit to the game on and off the pitch and he will be sorely missed. Incredibly over the four seasons he did not miss one single home match in the Heliodoro Stadium in Santa Cruz.

Second Division 16/05/2011 CLUB

Nino, the fans are eternally grateful

21/05/2011 Albacete 1:2 CD Tenerife This win by Tenerife was obviously too late to save the season but it was encouraging to see some of the youth players making their mark on the team. Relegation to the Spanish second division B was confirmed weeks ago and a major clear-out has now commenced. As many as 18 players will leave the club during the summer break and most will not be missed in the slightest. Proven talented players who have gained plenty of interest from La Liga sides in the past, Marc Bertrán, Ricardo, Natalio and Julio Alvarez will leave under a cloud. The attitude shown by these key players has not been acceptable and that influenced others on the pitch. The only players that can truly hold their heads high are goalkeeper Sergio Aragoneses and top scorer Nino. The rest of the squad have either lacked talent or have simply not had the character to lift themselves above the circumstances. In the game against Albacete, themselves relegated weeks before, the youth of both teams were given their chance to shine. The sparse crowd in the Carlos Belmonte Stadium treated the game like a pre-season friendly and the result was never of any im-

portance. Tenerife took the lead on the half an hour mark through a Nino penalty but the home side equalised just before the break. A defensive error let in Tato who chipping the ball over the advancing Aragoneses to score from a full 30 yards out. The second half belonged to Tenerife as they stamped their authority on the game. Ayoze and Moreno (promoted from the B team) were making their full debuts and coped well with the Albacete attack. In fact half the side used by the blanquiazules were homegrown young Tinerfeño talent. The home fans barracked their own team as they enjoyed the skilful play of Omar and co. The winner came on 76 minutes as Nino laid the ball back to Julio Alvarez who scored a great goal from the edge of the box. Hopefully that strike will help him find a new club as his €750,000 wages will be well beyond Tenerife’s budget next season. Nino crashed the ball against the bar soon after as the home outfit folded and the three points went Tenerife’s way in a comfortable victory.

28/05/2011 CD Tenerife 1:1 Ponferradina This game was all about CD Tenerife striker (make that legend) Nino. Earlier

in the week he had announced at an emotional press conference that he was leaving the club in the summer. Despite the Champions League Final being played on the Saturday somehow the club and the Spanish league thought it was fit to host this end of season game at a similar time. There were only four matches in Europe on the day and the Tenerife encounter was the only one in Spain! This obviously affected the attendance and this was a shame for Nino as he deserved to be carried off the pitch cheered by a full house. The six thousand supporters that did turn up for this game between two relegated clubs were treated to an open game although it did have an air of a ‘friendly’ about it. Man of the moment Nino opened the scoring on 15 minutes after a fine through ball from Mikel Alonso. Nino controlled brilliantly and in his typical style he rounded the keeper to score. We are sure going to miss him! Kitoko playing as cover in the centre half role was looking sharp and confident. He is one of the more experienced players that could stay for next season along with Mikel Alonso (brother of Madrid’s Xavi Alonso). At the start of the second half Ponferradina were reduced to ten men (well, it wouldn’t be a Spanish game without a

red card or two!) and the blanquiazules played with a determined style although clear cut chances were few. Certain players did not escape the wrath of the supporters, Ricardo was whistled every time he touched the ball and a large banner aimed towards himself and Marc Bertrán read ‘Rats are said to be the first to leave a ship that is sinking’. Just after the hour mark Tenerife full back Bellvis attempted a sliding tackle on the half-way line but his slightly late challenge was seen as a second yellow card by the referee and he was sent off. With both sides on 10 men the match really opened up but it was the blanquiazules who threatened as everyone willed Nino to score another goal. Josmar Zambrano livened up proceedings late in the game as his lazy run and 25 yard strike smacked off the bar before bouncing on the line. The 18 year old is back in the fold after a few months back in the B team. He was reported to have been upset when CD Tenerife refused to release him so that he could play for
