New centre in Armeñime

Health care hiccup

group of ex-pat women from Callao Salvaje are A more than unhappy at the

“cavalier” fashion in which they have been switched from Adeje’s main health centre to the newly opened one in Armeñime.

The group spoke to Island Connections just a few days after they had all received letters from the regional department of health informing them of the change – though some had already found out when they called to Adeje for a repeat prescription and were unceremoniously told that they were no longer patients of the centre. Many of these ladies have lived here for over 20 years and have established excellent relationships with their respective doctors

Armeñime new health centre

and nurses, working through language barriers, and felt comfortable discussing even the most intimate health problems. They are not happy at what appears to be the abrupt nature of the change. There are complaints on a number of levels. In essence, the new health centre will cater for all of the approximately 6,000 patients in the catchment area which will include most people living anywhere between the Atalaya roundabout and Guía de Isora. While they accept, albeit grudgingly in some cases, that now that the new centre is open and given where they live they should move, they feel they could have been informed at least a month in advance to give themselves time to get

used to the new arrangements, have a last visit with their old doctor and discuss any transition needs. According to the unofficial leader of the group, Ann Kirby, “85 per cent of the population of Callao Salvaje are British”, and a lot of them are pensioners. As ‘pensionistas’ and EU citizens registered and living in Spain they are entitled to exactly the same benefits as any national citizens. And what they do feel would help greatly would be some form of translation service, or “a qualified English language doctor”. Karen, one of the group who has lived here for years and would be fairly fluent in Spanish says going to the doctor “isn’t like going to the tax office; medical matters are very specific and very personal”, and you need to be able to discuss them in your own language. Most of the ladies we spoke to found that their respective doctors in Adeje could speak English and were more than happy to do so, but are worried that the same won’t be the case in Armeñime, and given that there are only two doctors to service the centre, they won’t have too much choice.

Have you seen them? SOCA

T

he UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) is asking holidaymakers and ex-pats in Spain to be on the look out for two fugitives.

The men, Kirk Bradley and Anthony Downes, escaped on Monday 18 July when the prison van they were travelling in was attacked by a gang armed with guns and baseball bats. At the time they were on their way from HMP Manchester to a court in Liverpool to face firearms charges. The security van driver and his passenger were taken to hospital though they

are not thought to be badly hurt. The attackers escaped with the prisoners in a car. SOCA believes that because of long-standing links the men may be attempting to travel to Spain, or may even already be here. Downes is known to be an associate of Kevin Parle, another fugitive on the Crimestoppers ‘most wanted’ list, who is thought to be in Spain and is wanted in connection with two murders in Liverpool. SOCA’s Frank Francis said, “These are dangerous men and it is very important that nobody approaches them. We are asking people who think they may have seen them to call Crimestoppers, either in Spain or in the

UK. You can do this free, and completely anonymously. Our priority is getting these two back into custody as soon as possible.” Kirk Trevor Bradley is 25 years old, 5’10”, of proportionate build, with green eyes and cropped black hair. He has a Liverpool accent. Anthony Downes, also known to associates as Fat Tony, is 24 years old, 5’7” with blue eyes and short straight dark hair. Contact Crimestoppers in Spain on 900 555 111. Your call will be answered in the UK by a Crimestoppers agent. For Crimestoppers in the UK call 0800 555 111.

New centre in Armeñime

News in Brief >>

Continued from front page We checked the situation in the UK and it would appear that under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000, “racial discrimination by public authorities is prohibited, this applies to organisations such as the NHS who are legally obliged to provide equal opportunities for staff and service users”, meaning in effect that “patients will get independent trained interpreters and this will reduce the need for family and friends to translate for them and ensure complete impartiality, accuracy and confidential communication of relevant information.” (http://www.nottinghamcitycare.nhs.uk/your-services/ your-community-services/344). Another secondary complaint is the location of the centre, which is at the top of a steep hill in the village. For those without cars, and particularly mothers with small children or those with any mobility difficulties, actually getting there will not be too easy, given that if you are taking public service transport from Callao Salvaje/Playa Paraíso, you will have to walk from the Shell station, crossing the busy main road and trek up to the centre. On the plus side the centre itself is very comfortable, the waiting area is well serviced, toilets are clean and the consulting rooms are large and airy. Parents of children who live in the catchment area have reported themselves very happy with the new facilities as they have been visiting the centre’s

paediatrician for a number of months now. It has to be underlined that not one of the people we spoke to had anything but very high praise for the level of medical care they have received and continue to receive here in Tenerife – it is the administrative side that is letting them down. And this administration is a part of the regional government, not the local authority. It is the regional department of health who concern themselves with these issues. When we asked them to respond to the complaints of our readers they told us, “In response to your question, the Canarian Department of Health would like to inform you that one of the objectives behind the opening of the new local health centre in Los Menores, Armeñime is to improve the quality of medical attention in the region with the addition

of two new doctors, a health centre and local doctor’s surgery. One of the other objectives is to cut out unnecessary journeys to Adeje for the patient…” While our ladies in Callao Salvaje are willing to reserve judgment and do understand that all this falls within the control of the regional administration they would like, perhaps, a public meeting to be held soon for all the residents of Callao Salvaje and Playa Paraíso with someone who could help them solve their particular problems. On their behalf we contacted the council who said that while health centres fall within the remit of the regional government Adeje council were always available to listen to concerns of residents and would be holding local public meetings dealing with issues relevant to each community in the very near future.

At the start of the month the Sunderland businessman and grandfather was cleared of killing a Moroccan in a brawl almost three years ago, and expected that within days he would be able to leave Tenerife and his years-long nightmare behind him only to learn that the paperwork on his case could take several more weeks, including the return of his passport. His wife Joan told Island Connections that the couple was worried that the formalities might not be completed before the Courts recess on 31 July for a month. However just in time Stephen was given his passport back and phoned us with the good news, with a flight booked to take him home to the family he has missed so much.

Beach volleyball

Cup Islas Canarias

Adeje gains yet another feather in its sports’ cap with the choice of the town as the site of the pre-Olympic tournament of beach volleyball. From September 30th to October 2nd in Playa Fañabé, some of the best beach volleyball players in the world will compete in this southern borough, marking a before and after of international competitions in this sport in the island and indeed the Canaries. The hosting of the event has the full support of all levels of the administrations. The councillor for sports in Adeje announced, “the repercussions of this elite sports event for our borough is very positive”. He believes the event will underline Adeje’s vanguard approach to tourism and their commitment to active tourism and in addition local players will have the opportunity to learn in sports workshops given by top players. Various parallel events for all ages are also being organised all along the beach.

As reported in our on-line website, www.islandconnections.eu, the Gomeran politician was forced to resign after a drunken fracas with police in Madrid. Newspaper coverage of the incident has included detailed scrutiny of Curbelo’s contribution to the political business of the Senate and the findings have prompted many to query what he was doing there in the first place. During the four years up to his resignation, and despite costing the Senate €5,300 a month in wages and living expenses, Curbelo did not file a single motion or ask a single question in the House. His pre-

vious years in the Senate proved equally unproductive, except for the period 2000-2004, when he submitted a series of written questions to the government. The revelations have led to calls

for a change in the way members of the Senate are chosen and for them to devote all their time to their Parliamentary activities instead of wearing multiple political hats.

Saavedra was one of very few to defend what he described as the “off the job behaviour” of Curbelo, who hit the headlines following a drunken brawl in a Madrid brothel in mid-July. While senior PSOE figures urged the La Gomera president to resign to save the party embarrassment, Saavedra, who is openly

gay, warned of the “dangers of excessive puritanism” and said resignations for such incidents were a matter for the English-speaking world only. “There is nothing wrong with a politician being with a whore, it should not have any political repercussions. At this rate, to stand in elections you will have to show you have never drunk in your life and been eternally faithful to your wife” said Saavedra, whose comments triggered a furious reaction, with some calling for the veteran politician to be “put out to grass definitively”.

The forty-fifth, annual ‘Vuelta de España’ tour of Spain air event, which took place between the eleventh and seventeenth of July, this year included the island airport on its itinerary for the first time. Organised by the Real Aeroclub de España, the Royal Air Club of Spain, the event began on July 11th in Armilla, Spain when the 25 planes got off to a flying start at the crack of a starting pistol. The second stage, on the following day, took them across to Morocco. They landed first at the Casablanca International Airport and then flew further south down the coast to holiday town Agadir. Agadir and its airport are comparatively modern, as both town and surrounding area were largely destroyed by an earthquake in the 1960s. Subsequent reconstruction of the town and construction of a new airport have helped Agadir to establish itself as a winter sun resort. After a night sampling

Cabildo Tourism Councillor, Fernando Méndez Borges, organised a memorable welcome for the little planes, saying before the visit, “...this is a wonderful opportunity to give the island and its special attractions a public airing. We’re delighted to be included on the route this year and will make sure our visitors are given a warm welcome. Ever yone will receive a memento of the island and we’re planning to give them a demonstration of the Silbo, the island’s whistled language”.

Unusual in that homegrown produce is used to produce distinctive, local vegetarian cuisine, the restaurant is popular with both local and foreign visitors. The award-winning Doña Efigenia has featured in numerous TV programmes and press articles. Recently, the family empire has expanded to include several rural houses in the El Razo area of Las Hayas. All of this has been enterprisingly and independently engineered and promoted at national and international levels and tourism fairs by Efigenia’s sons, principally Fernando, who, fluent in English and charismatic, is the above mentioned new councillor for tourism.

Concerts in danger The fall-out from the row over public money used for the recent Sting concert continues and two other huge events planned for Las Palmas could be in danger of cancellation. The organisers of the two forthcoming concerts by Mexican pop idols Maná (September) and Colombian megastar Juan Luis Guerra (November) say they might have to pull out if the city council does not honour an agreement to contribute €220,000 to the costs. New mayor Juan José Cardona, who complained at having to partially subsidise the Sting concert on 13th July, has already stated he will rethink all such deals reached by his predecessor because there are “other priorities that need tending to in Las Palmas”. “If the mayor goes back on the promise we received ages ago, we shudder to think of the consequences. 9,000 tickets have already been sold for Maná” said organisers LM Producciones.

New jail opens Gran Canaria’s second prison is expected to receive its first inmates at the beginning of August following its formal opening recently. The €105 million prison in San Bartolomé de Tirajana has been the source of heated controversy for the past two years due to fierce local opposition to the decision to site the facility in

the area. However, Spanish government representative Dominica Fernández said it would bring “jobs and prosperity” in the form of business for local shops, as well as a boost for the housing market as prison staff look for a place to live near the prison. The first batch of inmates is due to be sent from the overcrowded Salto del Negro jail in Las Palmas in the coming weeks. It is believed that plans are already being made to transfer dozens of Canarians who are serving sentences on the mainland to the new jail also. News in Brief >>

Maddie stabbing makes UK headlines The brutal stabbing of an English girl resident in Fuerteventura received extensive coverage in the UK media, particularly the Daily Mail, which gave prominent billing to the incident. 18-year-old Maddison ‘Maddie’ Wrixon underwent urgent surgery after being stabbed 13 times as she tried to prevent the killing of her new boyfriend in what local media have described as a “drugs dispute”. 20-yearold David Lemus, who has a track-record of petty crime, was remanded to prison after being arrested hours after the horrific crime, which left Cristian Santana, Maddie’s boyfriend of just two weeks, dead in his Puerto del Rosario flat. A police source quoted in the Daily Mail said ‘this was a shockingly brutal murder. Maddison appears to be an innocent victim whose only crime was to try to protect her boyfriend”.

Scare-mongering!

Last call

The new minister for immigration in the Canaries may introduce compulsory health checks for immigrants to see if they are carrying an infectious disease. In a controversial move, the new government allocated the immigration portfolio to the hard-line CCN party, which openly called in 2007 for tighter border controls and health checks for arrivals from non-EU countries. CCN leader Ignacio González said a few days ago that his party’s stance “had not changed” and his colleague Melchior Núñez, the new minister, was the ideal person for the office. Critics have warned today of the dangers of a xenophobic approach to immigration and of “scare-mongering” by the CCN on the hazards allegedly posed by illegal immigrants.

A woman who collapsed and died in a busy bingo hall in Santa Cruz recently had been involved in a row with a fellow-player minutes earlier, it has emerged. According to witnesses, the deceased, who was in her late 50s, rebuked the man for interrupting the game on several occasions with false calls and the escalation of the dispute led to his ejection from the hall, although not before he tried to assault the complainant. Seconds later she began to feel unwell and collapsed at the scene, dying shortly afterwards.

Charcoal makers

Burning enthusiasm in Vilaflor

T

The storyteller was very popular

he annual charcoal making event drew a record breaking crowd this year including many Island Connections readers.

Each year the town of Vilaflor draws on the talents of three of their senior citizens to build a charcoal burner and make charcoal the old traditional way. Started as a way of promoting the local potatoes, it’s an event that grows and grows and this year enjoyed the addition of a number of activities organised by a local youth workshop all based on the humble spud. Potato sculptures were made, a multi-author potato poem was composed, paintings and potato prints were drawn and splodged and a good time was had by all. A top chef and all the local restaurants took part in the demonstration of different menus using potatoes, and the dishes they created will stay on their respective menus for the next few weeks. Volunteers worked from Friday night to get everything ready for the Sunday food exhibition and were joined by a large group for the Saturday evening entertainment provided by the popular storyteller, a trip around the galaxy with a star expert, the laughter therapy specialist and many stayed on to take a turn at the vigil around the charcoal burner which has to be watched all night. Kids looked on in awe as the charcoal burner smoked and peered through the ‘doors’ where they could see the controlled combustion taking place. The importance of the potato crop to the town and the history and importance of the charcoal burners was related and the food tasting was washed down with a welcome glass of the local wine. This event will probably move back to May next year. Definitely one for the diary.

Drinking parties

Pub row

Bars and restaurants in resorts in Gran Canaria have stepped up their war on mass pub crawls and other organised drinking parties.

Around 40 owners of bars and restaurants in San Bartolomé de Tirajana have petitioned the local council to crack down on the binges, which are organised for large groups of young holidaymakers to enable them to get drunk as cheaply as possible. “We are under a lot of pressure from tour companies to sign up to activities such as boat parties, pub crawls and foam parties involving hundreds of drunken tourists or risk having no business at all” said a spokesman, who criticised the touts that lure customers away from their premises with promises of allnight binges elsewhere. “They are not good for the participants, due to the amount of cheap alcohol consumed in a few hours, or for the resorts, because of the noise and problems afterwards” he added.

Donation programme criticism

Food dumping controversy T

Aprocan blamed the heat wave on the mainland for early ripening

wo ‘food dumping’ incidents in recent weeks made the news for entirely different reasons but both triggered widespread anger at the outcome.

In the first, Telde council in Gran Canaria admitted that 21,000 kilos of food donated for distribution to needy families had to be thrown in the bin after becoming infected with a species of weevil that made the food, mainly rice and lentils, unusable. It is believed the weevils entered the bags of food at the premises set aside by the town for storing the donations. The news triggered fierce criticism of the handling of the donation programme by the local authorities. A few days later it emerged that massive

quantities of bananas had again been destroyed by Canarian fruit producers to prevent market prices from falling further. A sector spokesman in La Palma, where 733,000 kilos were dumped directly in the island’s landfills, said the measure was “standard practice” when export markets were saturated. The decision to dump the fruit comes six months after a similar quantity was destroyed for the same reason, despite calls to channel the fruit to worthy causes. Sources at the main Canarian producers’ association, Asprocan, said the heat wave on the mainland a few weeks ago had caused fruit there to ripen earlier than expected, triggering a fall in demand for bananas at the usual prices.

I swear…

Ministers forget King T

he new ministers in the Canarian government will not have to repeat their swearing-in ceremony despite a major gaffe during the event.

Two plain-clothed police officers tasked to monitor a pro-Sahara demonstration in Lanzarote in July say they were forced to draw their guns after a mob tried to lynch them.

According to reports the morning after the event, the man and woman were watching the protest march from the terrace of a cafeteria when they were recognised by one of the demonstrators, who urged his colleagues to remove them forcibly from the scene. In the altercation that followed both officers suffered cuts and bruises and were forced to brandish their weapons to keep the crowd at bay until help arrived. The incident is being investigated by the local authorities.



The new ministers forgot to take the oath of allegiance to the King during their swearing in

All the members of the cabinet forgot to take the oath of allegiance to King Juan Carlos during the ceremony at the Presidential Building in Santa Cruz but the mistake was not realised until afterwards. While constitution experts mulled over whether the ministers had actually taken up office, government spokesman Martín Marrero announced that the appropriate inquiries had been made and there was no problem despite the oversight. “The formal swearing-in is done in writing also and the oath was included when the eight ministers signed, so it supersedes the oral ceremony” said the spokesman. However, many are wondering how, despite rehearsals, all eight - including several who are repeating terms in government - could forget the crucial sentence on the day.

hree long-standing Tenerife friends must certainly hold a record of some kind for their passion for horses.

Nothing strange in that, one might argue, except that their combined ages amount to a staggering 235 years!

Manuel Melián, Gumersindo Robayna and the elderly statesman of the group, Estanislao Brotóns, who admits to being “on the wrong side of 80”, were visibly emotional at receiving individual plaques marking their contribution to equestrianism but once the eyes dried they were happy to chat about their beloved sport, which they have practised for well over half a century each. “Although we have done more dangerous things such as flying, riding is just as hazardous because, unlike with technology, here you need two minds to agree on what

New Santa Cruz mayor José Manuel Bermúdez is preparing a massive cost-saving programme for the coming five years after learning that he has inherited a 62 million euro debt. Bermúdez met with senior officials to work out the details of the programme, which he hopes will trim 50 million euros and allow him to pay off outstanding bills without crippling the council budget. The mayor hinted that local taxes such as IBI and refuse collection may well have to increase after being pegged for the last few years. A large slice of the debt (€18 million euros) is taken up by compensation payments ordered by courts after legal actions against Santa Cruz.

Tenerife’s German School has received a distinction from the German education authorities in recognition of its teaching standards and facilities.

Atalaya Playa

Hotel ‘could have survived’

The recent closure of a Puerto de la Cruz hotel, with almost 60 job losses, could have been avoided, according to the union representing the staff. The Atalaya Playa ceased trading in mid-July after its owners, TRH Hotels, sought permission from a local court to make the workers redundant due to the lack of business. “The management and chain made no attempt to salvage the situation and the closure was, in our view, premeditated. We showed the liquidator repeatedly that there was enough money in the

accounts to pay wages and bills. We also stressed ways to reorganise the running of the hotel to make sure it stayed in business but it was all ignored” said a spokesman for the CC.OO. union, which has threatened mobilisations in protest at the decision to dismiss the 59 employees. The closure is further bad news for Puerto de la Cruz, which already faces a similar situation in the Interpalace, Bonanza, Canarife and Semiramis hotels due to the financial problems of the Hotasa chain.

Close encounter

Fishermen home after swordfish sinking

Six fishermen from Los Cristianos have expressed their relief at being back on dry land after a runin with swordfish which sank their boat. The Roque de Aguila boat was attacked as it was fishing for tuna off the Western Sahara, 300 miles south of the Canaries. A 10-inch hole punched in the hull of the vessel caused serious flooding but luckily the crew were saved by another boat, the Lanzarote-based Santuario Barquereño, which kept them until a rescue ship arrived to pick them up and bring them back to the Canaries. The Roque de Aguila, whose crew is half Moroccan and half Canarian, was operating in the area under the EU’s Fisheries Agreement with Morocco. “We were lucky that we

were part of a large group of boats searching for tuna in roughly the same area, otherwise we could have been in deep trouble” said one of the crew on arrival in Tenerife after their close encounter. News in Brief >>

Police act

Car park ‘attendants’ warned

Santa Cruz police have finally acted to stamp out extortion practices by selfstyled car park attendants at the Candelaria Hospital. Officers moved in to identify several men against whom complaints were lodged by hospital users who were charged for accessing the free public car park. A total of six men aged between 33 and 59 have been warned not to use the car park as a private business or to threaten vehicle owners. The practice is the subject of frequent media coverage but to date little action has been taken to put an end to the intimidation, which takes the form of a friendly warning that the car “might suffer damage” if a “voluntary contribution” is not paid up front. Questioned by police, the men said they themselves had paid €45 each to other individuals for the “right” to operate shifts as attendants. News of the police intervention has been welcomed by drivers in Santa Cruz and visitors to the capital, who frequently complain at having to tip self-appointed attendants to park on public roads or waste ground.

Corani is a native Aymara from Lake Titicaca, and is a specialist in the handcrafting needed for this type of reed boats which are still used today in his native region for crossing the Titacaca lake. The construction took place in La Paz, Bolivia and the two-metre high vessel has now been blessed with long life and fortune, and will travel to Tenerife to form part of the Güímar park’s permanent collection. The previous version of the Ra II at the park was destroyed by storm Xynthia which struck

the island last year. The original Ra II was made from bulrush reeds, which grow in the huge South American lake, and the design was copied from the old Egyptian papyrus crafts. The creation was conceived and directed by the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl, the

Pirámides de Güímar founder, to carry out one of the most famous trans-oceanic expeditions. His trip proved his theory that ancient civilisations were capable of sea crossings, and used both building and navigational techniques of ancient times.

Airline push by Adeje A

Dolado says he wants to attract the airlines back to the south

deje’s new tourism councillor has put attracting airlines back to Tenerife South at the top of his list of priorities for the coming months. In an inter view with the Diario de Avisos newspaper, Rafael Dolado says he will do all he can to persuade scheduled airlines to step up

or reinstate their flights to the south, although he realises that other factors may well influence their decisions. “Talking to several recently, I know that companies like Air Europa and Air Berlin feel the airport charges in Tenerife South are too high compared to Tenerife North, which is why they prefer to look there. Something must be done to reduce the cost for the airlines if they are to be persuaded to come back” said Dolado, who has already opened contacts with Iberia and Spanair to increase their services.

The kids had a great time during the dive session

Paradise Divers at Tropical Park in Callao Salvaje played hosts recently to a group of youngsters from the Callao Kids Club. They enjoyed a try dive session in the pool, all of them trying scuba diving for the very first time. There were a few nerves at first, but at the end of the session nobody wanted to leave the pool! Not all of the club members were available on the day and Paradise Divers have kindly offered to run another session for the club during the school holidays. Those who have already tried will be able to go again, and new members are welcome to join in if they come to the club and introduce themselves. The club is for youngsters of school age from the Callao Salvaje area and meets at the club rooms in CC Albatros next to Witzend on Sunday evenings at 7.00pm. Prospective new members or their parents are invited to call the organisers and can ring Dennis on 646 815318.

Work in progress Residents in Callao Salvaje are becoming cautiously optimistic that the beach may be finished in coming months. While the project was more ambitious than perhaps many realised and therefore the village residents and visitors have been beach-less this summer, anyone who has taken a peep over the wall to see the work in progress are delighted with what they see and the general consensus is that “it’ll be worth the wait”: Meanwhile work on the new urban park in the zone between the Callao Beach and Arco Iris complexes is almost complete, with swings and slides now in place local children and their parents are hoping the new park will be open for business soon.

According to Carmen Rosa González Cabrera, this summer the borough’s older citizens can sign up for a range of different activities, with the overall objective being to, “improve their quality of life with an of fer of alternative leisure pursuits”, which will also help people get out and make new friends especially if they are hampered in developing a social life due to their advancing years. The offer also includes sports “adapted to the needs” of those taking part. The list of activities includes open air gym sessions and yoga, beach trips and golf – all outdoors based, to allow people to “take advantage of the great weather to appreciate nature, our surrounds, get to know the borough a little better as well as sharing relaxing moments with friends”, says Carmen Rosa. She added that the programme of activities also works to help older people maintain their physical wellbeing.

CabildoNews Clubbing together

Hand in hand

The project ‘Juntos en la misma dirección’ (‘going the same way together’), a Cabildo initiative, recently held a working day with 150 participants from 20 different countries, representing a variety of associations and immigrant groups who are part of the project. Delia Herrera, councillor for external action and cooperation was present and expressed her delight at the multicultural participation and the excellent example of coexistence created by the event, and stressed the Cabildo’s ongoing desire to work to support a number of projects promoting integration. ‘Juntos en la misma dirección’ has been designed to create a forum where social agencies and public institutions can come together to work to improve integration and co-existence between different population groups on the island.

Bus stop improvements

The Tenerife Cabildo has allocated funding to improve passenger and pedestrian safety at a number of public bus stops in El Sauzal, La Matanza, La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz at a projected cost of €185,600. The work will see better pedestrian access to the stops, new shelters which will integrate a new bus information system as well as upgrading the existing signals. Alongside this work 15 stops along the TF-2 and TF-5 are earmarked for general upgrades, specifically in Santa Úrsula, el Mayorazgo and La Orotava.

Hudson urges golf clubs to join forces M

arketing guru Simon Hudson used a recent public talk on golf tourism in Tenerife to urge the island’s courses to get together and prepare a Golf Trail package for enthusiasts.

The UK-born professor currently at the University of South Carolina said Spain, along with Portugal, can expect to continue to head the growth in European golf tourism in the coming years but places like Tenerife are constrained by the lack of space to build more facilities and therefore need to capitalise on what sets them apart from rivals. “Several emerging golfing countries, including Vietnam with its Ho Chi Minh Trail, are reaping the rewards of alliances between courses to provide a multi-centre and longer holiday involving rounds at different venues. Tenerife should do the same and enable players to try their skills in the south

of the island as well as up in picturesque Buenavista”, Hudson told an audience of golf sector representatives at the lecture, which was organised by Tenerife Tourism. The marketing specialist, who has published several books on the subject and on the use of holiday destinations as

film locations, also underlined the success of initiatives to engage youngsters and women in golf, not just the fathers. “Gone are the days when golf destinations could rely solely on the traditional group of 20 friends holidaying together with only their golf clubs as company. We need to be much more inven-

tive to engage the families also with complementary offerings, such as Learn the Basics in Five Days or First Tee Skills” he argued. Also discussed at the talk were collaborative ventures between golf and other industries, particularly the wine sector for ‘19th Hole Wines’ packages.

Flying under the sea!

“On or under the sea, there’s a place for you and m 1.)

By Clio O’Flynn

T

he more you explore these islands the more you discover that there are many ‘other sides of life’ in the Canaries. In essence there are two directions you can go from the sea shore to explore – inshore in ‘rural’ mode, or out to sea on a more watery odyssey. If you share the growing concern for the marine as well as the land-based environment you’ll want to pick your sea excursion with care. Unfortunately more than one or two of the whale and dolphin trips so extensively advertised don’t abide by the marine conservation guidelines, and there is also a plethora of private excursion boats for hire with crews and captains who care too little about what’s under the sea, only who is paying to float on top. If human beings have done their bit to damage the marine ecosystem, the black sea urchin has done a huge amount, and on a recent flyover dive I saw just how devastating the presence of this species has been to the insular waters. The sea urchin (Diadema antillarum) is one of the most abundant species of invertebrates on the sea floors of the Canary Islands, and has become one of its biggest problems over the years. More than 60 per cent of the ecosystems of the rocky coasts of the Islands have been affected by the sea urchin, whose uncontrolled growth rates have been favoured by the disappearance of natural predators leading to the formation of underwater deserts. Océano Sostenible Association set in motion a programme to restore the seabed at El Puertito in Adeje which had been severely damaged by a plague of sea urchins. It is work that has been recognised by publications as well known as

National Geographic. Leading the work is David Novillo who has been working with Adeje’s local authorities as well as the Loro Parque foundation to create something unique here in the Canaries, a marine biosphere, that will, it is hoped, guarantee the future of life under the sea as well as raising consciousness about the need for environmental conservation below as well as above water and offer visitors an exciting morning or afternoon’s diving – even if they have never donned a scuba diving suit in their lives, with a ‘flyover’ experience. With a small boat and therefore a small party of divers – “we can take up to eight or ten”, says David – we set off on a relatively calm morning from Puerto Colón to make our way to the site which is just off El Puertito near Playa Paraíso. In our group there was an experienced diver, Peter, and two utter novices, Phillip and myself. During the boat ride David took us through the basic rules that are vital and essential to our own safety during this ‘flyover’ dive. (Experienced divers can skip this paragraph). David reassured us that we would be only diving down to a depth of 10 metres (that is the maximum that non-licensed divers can go with a certified companion), and that we would be guided absolutely every inch of the way. We had to remember to ‘pop’ our ears every few metres, breathe through our mouths using the mouthpiece and remember four simple hand signs signifying ‘OK’, ‘I have a problem’, ‘up’ and ‘down’. It all sounds too easy but when you actually go under the water for the first time it’s just about all you will probably remember. Certainly in my case there was a moment of initial panic, but once I began to breathe

who can get under the water first and how far they can go. David guided me down slowly under the water and as I got used to being under as opposed to on the sea, it was like entering a new, quieter and very different world. During my ‘flyover’ David first showed me the extensive

area he and his team have recovered. The sea bed is teaming with life - vegetable, mineral and animal, fish of all sizes and hues, feeding and breeding, having returned to an area that was once com-

pletely barren. To prove the point he made earlier on the boat, David then guided me to a zone that they have yet to tackle, and immediately we were in the equivalent of a seabased desert, with only rock and those dangerous black sea urchins, clinging in clusters to the rock faces, destroying everything around them. However David explained later that they do provide feeding for small fish so to simply remove them to dry land and destroy them would be killing those fish, so they are pierced under water and different fish then feed on different parts. Since they started their antiurchin/save the sea-bed campaign in the early 2000s, the area has also become home to a number of green turtles, some of whom had been injured by careless fishermen/

Once established, this centre will bring an opportunity to develop management strategies of the marine resources, help with preserving the area and setting the bases for the creation of a local sustainable model. Once achieved, this would offer a chance for developing strategies to help regulate and manage the marine assets in a sustainable fashion, thus avoiding the degradation of the recovered areas in an effort towards the adoption of policies that will stand the test of time. But David Novillo and his team know that there is still a lot to do, and it’s not just about opening the minds of those who are there to dive but others who dive without regard for the environment that makes their diving so amazing in the first place.

Whale and dolphin watching

A good spot to jump aboard a whales and dolphin watching boat is in the marina at Los Gigantes. There are boats of various sizes offering trips from one to three hours, all at reasonable prices. I was kindly invited by the team from the Katrin boat which is a restored wooden cutter. It was clean and spacious with plenty of seating areas to accommodate 30 or so on board. On leaving the marina, looking right the recently reopened beach could be seen with plenty of people enjoying the sea and sand. We turned left and headed towards the island of La Gomera and soon came across a group of bottle nosed dolphins. Attracted by the noise and vibration of the engines they seemed to be quite happy to be in our company.

These dolphins are robust with a short stubby nose, high curved dorsal fin and a light greyish colour. Venturing further out the pilot whales soon came into sight. These whales are actually part of the dolphin family and are a joy to watch. There were males, females and calves, some of which passed directly under the boat. On returning we anchored in the bay at Masca for a swim and to view the magnificent cliffs which we followed on our way back to the marina. It was quite clear that our entire multi-national group thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Drowning – the real signs

stop drowning and perform voluntary movements such as waving for help, moving toward a rescuer, or reaching out for a piece of rescue equipment.

By Mario Vittone

T

he new captain jumped from the deck, fully dressed, and sprinted through the water. A former lifeguard, he kept his eyes on his victim as he headed straight for the couple swimming between their anchored sportfisher and the beach. “I think he thinks you’re drowning,” the husband said to his wife. They had been splashing each other and she had screamed but now they were just standing, neck-deep on the sand bar. “We’re fine, what is he doing?” she asked, a little annoyed. “We’re fine!” the husband yelled, waving him off, but his captain kept swimming hard. ”Move!” he barked as he sprinted between the stunned owners. Directly behind them, not ten feet away, their nineyear-old daughter was drowning. Safely above the surface in the arms of the captain, she burst into tears, “Daddy!” How did this captain know – from fifty feet away – what the father couldn’t recognise from just ten? Drowning is not the violent, splashing, call for help that most people expect. The captain was trained to recognise drowning by experts and years of experience. The father, on the other hand, had learned what drowning looks like by watching television. If you spend time on or near the water (hint: that’s all of us) then you should make sure that you know what to look for whenever people enter the water. Until she cried a tearful, “Daddy,” she hadn’t made a sound. As a former Coast Guard rescue swimmer, I wasn’t surprised at all by this story. Drowning is almost always a deceptively quiet event. The waving, splashing, and yelling that dramatic conditioning (television) prepares us to look for, is rarely seen in real life. The Instinctive Drowning Response – so named by Francesco A. Pia, Ph.D., is what people do to avoid actual or perceived suffocation in the water. And it does not look like most people expect. There is very little

Look out for the real signs of drowning

5. “From beginning to end of the Instinctive Drowning Response people’s bodies remain upright in the water, with no evidence of a supporting kick. Unless rescued by a trained lifeguard, these drowning people can only struggle on the surface of the water from 20 to 60 seconds before submersion occurs.” (Source: On Scene Magazine: Autumn 2006 (page 14) This doesn’t mean that a person that is yelling for help and thrashing isn’t in real trouble – they are experiencing aquatic distress. Not always present before the instinctive drowning response, aquatic distress doesn’t last long – but unlike true drowning, these victims can still assist in their own rescue. They can grab lifelines, throw rings, etc.

Look for these other signs of drowning when persons are in the water: • Head low in the water, mouth at water level • Head tilted back with mouth open • Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus • Eyes closed splashing, no waving, and no yelling or calls for help of any kind. To get an idea of just how quiet and undramatic from the surface drowning can be, consider this: In the USA it is the number two cause of accidental death in children , age 15 and under (just behind vehicle accidents) – of the approximately 750 children who will drown next year, about 375 of them will do so within 25 yards of a parent or other adult. In ten percent of those drownings, the adult will actually watch them do it, having no idea it is happening (source: CDC). Drowning does not look like drowning. Dr. Pia, in an article in the Coast Guard’s On Scene Magazine, described the instinctive drowning response like this:

1.

“Except in rare circumstances, drowning people are physiologically unable to call out for help. The respiratory system was designed for breathing. Speech is the secondary or overlaid function. Breathing must be fulfilled, before speech occurs.

2.

“Drowning people’s mouths alternately sink below and reappear above the surface of the water. The mouths of drowning people are not above the surface of the water long enough for them to exhale, inhale, and call out for help. When the drowning people’s mouths are above the surface, they exhale and inhale quickly as their mouths start to sink below the surface of the water.

3. “Drowning people cannot wave for help. Nature instinctively forces them to extend their arms laterally and press down on the water’s surface. Pressing down on the surface of the water, permits drowning people to leverage their bodies so they can lift their mouths out of the water to breathe. 4. “Throughout the Instinctive Drowning Response, drowning people cannot voluntarily control their arm movements. Physiologically, drowning people who are struggling on the surface of the water cannot

• Hair over forehead or eyes • Not using legs – Vertical • Hyperventilating or gasping • Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway • Trying to roll over on the back • Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder. So if someone falls overboard and everything looks OK – don’t be too sure. Sometimes the most common indication that someone is drowning is that they don’t look like they’re drowning. They may just look like they are treading. One way to be sure? Ask them, “Are you all right?” If they can answer at all – they probably are. If they return a blank stare, you may have less than 30 seconds to get to them. And parents – children playing in the water make noise. When they get quiet, you get to them and find out why.

Lifeguard course

Siam Park lifesavers’ school F

or those of us raised on episodes of Baywatch, there will always be something glamorous and heroic about lifeguards, but the reality is a hard job requiring special skills. There is an increasing need for well qualified lifeguards in the islands which is why Siam Park has opened its own official lifeguard school. The course which is held in the water theme park includes all aspects related to preventing accidents in the water and how to act in emergency situations. Students must be a minimum of 16 years old and have completed the minimum school education level (E.S.O.) or its European equivalents. Topics covered during the 100 hours of theory and practice include the role of a lifeguard in preventing accidents, reanimation, handling injuries, rescue and treatment of victims’ injuries and the most common water accidents. The head of the course is Mariano Alarcón who has over 10 years of experience in the area. He announced, “The school is an answer to the social demand and the big necessity of lifeguards on the Canary Islands. Additionally we want to enable young people to feel capable of saving lives in their place of employment. The course uses real life saving examples which are necessary for future lifeguards, but often are difficult to find in other courses in this vein.” Successful students will receive an official ESSCAN title (Canarian Health and Social Benefits School), a necessary qualification at national level for all those seeking work in swimming pools, theme parks, hotels, camping grounds, community pools and sports clubs and will benefit from job opportunities open to them once qualified. The next date for the course has not yet been announced, but places are restricted so keep an eye on their blogsite at www.siampark. net, or contact them directly on escuela@siampark.net or 689 990 067, Monday to Friday from 9.00 to 19.00 hours.

Business NEWS

E

arlier this month, we read in international news that ratings agency Moody’s had cut the Republic of Ireland’s debt rating by one notch, to the ‘junk’ level Ba1 from Baa3. Moody’s said its decision was based on the “growing possibility” that Ireland would need a second bail-out before it can return to capital markets. The current European Union and International Monetar y Fund support programme is due to end in late 2013, coming at a time when markets fear the debt crisis in the eurozone could spread to Italy and Spain. Ireland, Greece and Portugal have all been downgraded by ratings agencies several times recently. These downgrades not only reduce the value of the euro but they also cause international stockmarkets to plummet. In March this year, Moody’s cut Spain’s rating by a notch, escalating the ongoing debt crisis in the eurozone. Spain’s rating was downgraded to Aa2, Moody’s third highest rating, as the agency warned that the country had under-estimated the cost of rescuing its banking sector. The Spanish government hurriedly published plans to partially nationalise its ‘cajas’, force them to become conventional banks and then float them on the stockmarket. So who are Moody’s, and what does this all mean? They are credit-rating agencies, which exist to assess the credit-worthiness of bond issuers - companies or, as in these cases, countries, which borrow money by issuing IOUs called bonds. Agencies such as Moody’s in-

Pensions

Congress approves reforms

Spain’s Congress has now definitively approved the law to modernise the social security system, extending retirement age to 67 years and amplifying the period for assessment of entitlements from 15 to 25 years. The new system will not enter into effect until 2013, and over the following 15 years, the retirement age will be extended progressively, with the changes to be completed in the year 2027. The government calculates that 40 per cent of workers retire at the age of 67, another 40 per cent at 65, and the remaining 20 per cent retire earlier, either because their work is strenuous or because they have a disability. Within the reforms is the provision that disabled people can retire early, provided they have been contributing to the social security system for at least 25 years.

Credit rating agencies

Moody’s – who are they? vestigate global capital markets and their analysis usually covers structured finance, corporate finance, public finance, and financial institutions credit. From the results, they advise would-be investors as to the chances of getting their capital back and earning any interest if they were to invest in a particular company or country. Over the years credit ratings have achieved wide investor acceptance as convenient tools for differentiating credit quality.

Hence the devastating effect of a downgrade on the markets. As an example, Ireland’s rating was cut from Baa3 (Obligations rated Baa are subject to moderate credit risk. They are considered medium grade and as such may possess certain speculative characteristics), to Ba1 (Obligations rated Ba are judged to have speculative elements and are subject to substantial credit risk). Spain’s rating of Aa2 (Obligations rated Aa are judged to be

of high quality and are subject to very low credit risk) was not that bad, but the mere fact that it went down by a notch inspired Spanish government action. The European Commission has strongly criticised international credit ratings agencies for their recent decisions. The three main players (the names everyone watches out for) are Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch, and interestingly, not one of these is based in Europe.

Consumer rights The European Commission has taken disciplinary action against Spain for failing to apply EU standards regarding rights of telecommunications users. The Spanish authorities have two months in which to adopt the required measures, and if they fail to do so, the case could be taken to the Luxembourg tribunal. The new measures establish the right of clients to change operator in only one day and keep their existing telephone number. They also provide for more clarity regarding services

which are offered, for example Internet connection speed, and better protection of personal data on-line. According to Brussels, communications companies will also benefit from improved judicial security due to the EC’s new supervision role and the coordination of European telecommunications regulators. To date, only seven State members (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Malta, the UK and Sweden) have satisfactorily incorporated the new EU standards. So in addition to Spain, action has also been taken against 19 other countries.

The association has warned that numerous scientific studies have shown that these products do not have any insect repelling effects, and that their mode of advertising is deceiving the public. FACUA has asked the Instituto Nacional del Consumo (INC) and various independent consumer protection bodies to take action against five companies: Chicco (who market the product Mosqui no), Prince Lionheart (Lionheart anti mosquitos mariquita), Pest Reject, Uriach-Aquilea (Radarfarm) and Servicroma (Radarcan). Their advertising contains statements such as “doesn’t kill unwanted creatures but frightens them so that they disappear”, or “the definitive system which makes flies and mosquitos disappear” (Pest Reject), and “imitates the buzzing of male mosquitos which scares the females and prevents biting”. Some 20 studies are cited which put in doubt the efficiency of these plug-ins, the majority of which were carried out in biology faculties of public and private universities worldwide.

nglish speaking property owners and purchasers are to get greater access to property information in English, under new measures announced by the Spanish authorities. Expatriate home owners and buyers are now able to request a Land Registr y cer tificate (nota simple) in English from the Colegio de Registradores (College of Registrars). A certificate, including the translation fee, costs €29 (plus VAT) and can be requested from the Colegio de Registradores website https://buyingahouse. registradores.org. In addition, a new central government decree (that came into force on 7 July) introduces a range of measures that the government says will protect property purchasers and homeowners, helping to ensure that purchasers have the necessary information in hand and preventing property problems from occurring in the future. The British Ambassador to Spain, Giles Paxman, said, “I welcome these initiatives. Communicating essential information in English, combined with the measures announced in the decree, should help to ensure buyers are accurately informed

of any legal issues connected with a property. “However these measures will not, of course, do anything to help existing homeowners who have been experiencing issues with their properties. We will continue to work with the Spanish authorities to ensure these problems are addressed.”

The measures announced in the 7 July decree include: • Allowing proper ties which are ‘fuera de ordenación’[1] to be registered on the Land Registr y. The decree says this will

• Ensuring that essential information regarding the legality of the property is incorporated into the Land Registr y. This means that when purchasers request a ‘nota simple’ from the Land Registry, they will be able to see whether there are or have been any legal proceedings against the property, such as proceedings which may result in fines or demolition. It will now be obligatory for town halls to provide registrars with this information. If town halls fail to provide this information, they will be held responsible for economic damages affecting third parties who bought in good faith. • Confirming that it is impossible to acquire rights which contradict land and town planning laws due

to administrative silence (this is also included in the Ley estatal de Suelo). This measure clarifies that a licence cannot be granted due to passivity or inaction by town halls. Instead, the transformation, construction and use of land requires administrative authorisation and if the timeframe for a response expires without the individual receiving authorisation, the lack of a response will be considered as a negative decision. • Increasing protection for purchasers who buy off-plan from a developer. The decree states that it is not possible to register a new property on the Land Registry unless it has a licence of first occupation, a construction licence and a technical certificate which states that the property corresponds to the plans for which the licence was granted.

Home work Reforms

I

t’s a good time to reform your home. The crises that has hit the construction industry means it’s cheaper and there are more grants and fiscal advantages available.

The competition for work among construction companies means that their prices should be much closer to your budget, but be careful and avoid companies who are not legally responsible for the work they perform if there are any problems. It will also mean that you will lose any grants or fiscal benefits you may have been entitled to. If you live in a community, whether apartments or an urbanisation, you have to notify your community president of any work you are carrying out and you should be aware that under some community constitutions some works need the unanimous support of all your neighbours. Similarly with the local councils, some works require specific licences and what not all the councils requirements are the same. Some of the licences will require a project completed and signed by an

architect and failing to get the correct licence could result in a fine or even a court order to put the property back into its original condition. The various administrations have made new grants and fiscal advantages available for home reforms with the dual aims of improving the security, comfort and energy efficiency of homes over 12 years old and helping to fight the unemployment in the construction industry.

There are a number of restrictions on the aid available such as the level of the family income, use payment methods which clearly show when the work has been carried out and keep detailed bills of each section of the work – which means you have to use professional workers who are paying tax and social security. However the rules and regulations differ greatly depending on the region you belong to. The best place to go to for information is the offices of Vivienda y Economía

in your regional government. In the Canaries you could be due up to 25 per cent of the cost of the work to be carried out or €2,500. The income level cut off point is currently six and a half times the IPREM (Public income multiple index) which for 2011 stands at €7,455. Those with very low incomes, over 65 or living in very old properties may find they may be able to claim even more. Local councils too sometimes have programmes which can go from providing you with paint and bags of concrete to financial aid. If you are changing the boiler, the air conditioning, windows, or white goods such as washing machines and cookers you may be entitled to help through the Plan Renove which gives direct discounts. The sums vary from region to region and the amounts provided each year for this plan run out fairly quickly. Information is available at the Regional government office of Economía or Industria. The cost of part of work carried out to improve energy efficiency, insulate your home, eliminate architectural barriers, improve the security or add access to the Internet and television services may be reclaimable against your tax, at least until the end of next year. You need to be earning less than €53,007 a year and again the payment methods, date of work and billing must be traceable and quite clear. Paying in cash will nullify any claim you might have had.

roperty owners who are renting out their homes in Spain and not declaring the income to the tax authorities – watch out! This summer, the Agencia Tributaria is launching a campaign to cut down on illegal rentals. In some extreme cases, this involves agencies which let properties they have registered on their books without informing the owners, pocketing the income themselves and cutting out both the owner and the tax authority. These new measures are also aimed at the increasing number of second homeowners who are letting their properties out and failing to declare their earnings. Recent figures estimate that, of the 65,000 holiday homes rented every year in the province of Málaga, 75 per cent are not declared, meaning a total loss to the tax authorities of a breathtaking €104.8 million. The figures for the Canary Islands must be equally shocking. In order to recover this money, the Agencia Tributaria has enlisted the help of the electricity companies. Armed with proof of electricity consumption during periods when apartments, townhouses and villas were allegedly empty, the tax authorities will be able to pursue the offending landlords. To avoid getting caught out, firstly, register your rental contract with the housing department at your local council. Provided you are doing everything else correctly, this will afford you a good level of legal protection. Declare your rental income, and hold on to 24 per cent of this figure which is the amount you will need to pay to the tax authorities. You must declare this income not only in Spain, but in your own country if that is where you are resident. There is a double taxation agreement between Spain and the UK and Germany, to ensure that you do not pay twice. If you are resident in Spain, simply add the rental income figure to your annual tax return. If you register your property as a tourist let, you can cite maintenance of the property as a business expense to be deducted from your tax. Follow these simple rules, and you will be able to relax and enjoy the income from your property.

Acoustic ������������������ isolations

Tenerife Norte The Spanish airports’ authority, Aena, have just announced an increase to €14.2 million in funding to soundproof homes and education centres near the Tenerife North airport. The monies will be used to improve the lives of residents in 287 homes in the vicinity of the airport – work on the soundproofing of 287 homes is now complete with upgrades to a further127 houses and apartments already underway. Under the Acoustic isolation plan approved by all the appropriate authorities up to 715 are listed as entitled to some form of assistance – 700 of those residencies are in the La Laguna borough and 15 in Tegueste. Interested parties can contact the planning office on 91 590 31 70.

Mortgage ������������������� repaymentss

Repossessions up The number of home repossessions by banks in the Canaries rose slightly during the first part of this year compared to the same period in 2010, indicating the economy is far from out of the woods yet. Approximately 1,300 families here lost their homes in the first quarter as banks called in unpaid mortgages. Local consumer body UCE says the rate could still rise further by the end of 2011, although it is unlikely to reach the overall record set in 2009, when 5,500 homes were repossessed. “One of the problems is that people took out loans well above what was needed to pay for the actual house, so they could add in the furniture and even cars at the same time. Now we are seeing them struggle to pay the money back” said a UCE source. Bank user organisation Ausbanc calculates that 40 per cent of households in the Canaries are currently experiencing difficulties meeting their monthly mortgage payments.

Foreign �������� property ��������� buyers ������s

Apartment sales A total of 18,561 apartments were bought by foreigners in Spain last year, representing 4.45 per cent of all homes sold in 2010, according to the Annual Directory of Property Registrars. According to the Registrars, the economic crisis “particularly affected” foreign residents in Spain, “who saw their expectations being most undervalued, thus reducing their demand for housing.” They continued, “in contrast, foreign non-residents benefitted in relative terms, as they found more affordable housing in Spain as a result of reduced property prices”. By nationality, the Brits bought most apartments in Spain last year, totalling 4,350, and 23.4 per cent of all property purchased by foreigners. They were followed by the French with 8.2 per cent, Germans (7.7 per cent), Russians (6.9 per cent) and Italians (5.6 per cent). As highlighted during the property boom, as well as the British, the foreign citizens who bought most homes in Spain were Ecuadorians, Moroccans, Romanians and Colombians, people who wanted to establish themselves in Spain for employment purposes.

Buying a property off-plan in Spain

B

uying an off plan property inevitably involves a higher risk than buying a re-sale property. If you are considering buying an off-plan property in Spain you should consider the following advice: • Make sure you have a bank guarantee (aval bancario) to cover your stage payments. Do not make any payments without a guarantee. Developers of of f-plan properties are legally obliged under law 57/1968 to secure all deposits with a bank guarantee. You should ensure that this guarantee is individual and not a collective guarantee covering the whole development, which does not give you the same protection. You should also request proof that your payment has been deposited in a special account, which can only be used for construction of the specified development. Visit the British Embassy page on bank guarantees for more information • Check the Mercantile Registry. Make sure the developer you are signing the agreement with exists and the person who is going to sign on the developer’s behalf has the legal power to do so. For this information, check the Mercantile Registr y, where the company should be registered. You can go to any Mercantile Registry office or use the www.registradores.org web site to get this information about the company • If you are considering purchasing in a coastal area you should contact the Demarcación de Costas in your region to get a certificate

to certify that the property is not affected by the 1988 Ley de Costas (Coastal Law) • Make sure the land which is going to be built on is registered to the developer you are doing business with. That way you know it is the owner. To do this, check the Property Registry • Make sure you have a copy of the Catastral certificate giving the exact boundaries and square metres of your land • Ensure the developer has insurance covering damage caused by structural defects to the building. This insurance should be included in the property manual (libro del edificio) that the developer gives you • Check the project has planning permission. Make sure the planned building has been authorised by the town hall through the correct licensing procedure, and has approval from the regional government. You can check this at the Property Registry, because if the description of the future building is registered, that means the registrar has seen evidence that the licence exists and work has begun in accordance with the approved design. If the building’s description has not been registered yet, go to the local Town Hall to find out whether the land in question can be built on. Either way, it is worth going to the Urbanismo (Town Planning) department of the town hall to have a look at the Plan General de Ordenación Urbana (Town Plan) which will state whether or not the

plot you wish to buy has any building restrictions, is in a green zone, includes a public footpath or if there are any current plans to build a motorway etc • Ensure that the developer provides you with a ‘certificado final de obra’. Once construction has finished, before you sign the title deed, ask for proof from the seller that the construction has been finished in accordance with the description given in the plans (certificado final de obra). You can also check this at the Property Registry. If there is an entry stating that construction is complete, that means that the registrar has seen proof of the existence of a certificate stating that construction is complete • Make sure you have the licence of first occupancy (licencia de primera occupación) which is issued by the town hall for new buildings and certifies that the property is habitable. You will need this document to connect to electricity and water companies. Developers cannot force you to complete without this licence • Get a chartered surveyor to check the property. This is not obligatory but it is wise to get a chartered surveyor to check the property before you complete For more information, http:// ukinspain.fco.gov.uk/en/helpfor-british-nationals/living-inspain/property-in-spain/beforeyou-buy/

Andalusian welcome Dear Editor

I

’ve seen letters here before talking about how we treat our tourists, but the experience I had in Andalusia recently tops the lot. The northern airport was closed by fog, so we had to ship down to the south by bus and wait for a slot. By the time we got into Seville I was already running hours late, but managed to get the next airport transfer bus to the train station after some surly directions from the woman in the tourist information centre. The bus goes past the station, but not actually into the forecourt, so I had to drag my luggage, there were no trolleys either, about 400 yards uphill along with about a third of the buses passengers. Once in the station I could

see trains going to Cádiz, my end destination on the board, so I got one of the queues that said it was for trains leaving soon. When I got to the front of that queue, still dragging my luggage, I was sent to another that was for Cádiz trains. When I finally got to the front of that queue, I asked for an Ave ticket (fast train) to Cádiz. The gentleman gave me an open return ticket after explaining what it was but was unable to tell me which platform the train went from as it wasn’t yet, “on the board”. Watching the board I didn’t realise that they also had arrivals listed and when I saw the following Cádiz train listed along I went to platform 6-7, still dragging the luggage, still no trolleys. I queued up again to go through the security measures and got to the desk only to be told that this train was coming from Cádiz not going to it. When I asked where the trains to Cádiz left from I was told rudely that they didn’t know and ordered out of the queue

by a security guard as I was holding them up. By the time I eventually found the right platform the train had just pulled out. I didn’t think that could be mine because it wasn’t an Ave train, but it turns out I didn’t have the Ave ticket I’d asked for either. I had one that took the same time at around a third of the price, but that hadn’t been explained, so I wasn’t looking for a normal train.

waiting for her to dock. I should explain that I am completely bilingual in Spanish, It’s anyone’s guess how a nonSpanish speaker would have got on. I will not be going back. It’s a beautiful area, but the reception in general was poor in the offices, bars and restaurants, the service slow and a don’t care attitude prevailed, with the exception of a Gran Canarian in a beach bar.

The delay was an hour and a half until the next train. They then tried to charge me another €4 for my ticket to change it! By the time I got to Cádiz the day was almost finished. The following day in the port building I was trying to find out when the ship I had gone over to visit was due in. There was no listing in the local papers as there is in Tenerife, nor was there a chart in the port building. I found the offices and no-one knew anything. I eventually got the information from the guides on the tour buses that were

We are blessed here, believe me. SC, Los Silos

Everything points to fun right now, and you might even meet a delicious contact who is charming and sweet, so make sure you’re on your toes! With your sense for love, an attraction could become more serious. Try to keep your feet on the ground.



Sagittarius (November 22 to December 20)

Home is where the heart is, but outside an attraction beckons. Expect to be dazzled by a sharp intellect and plenty of wit. Take a break from your routine and go on an adventure, but be careful with your budget. Don’t blow it all on a party or a night out.



Capricorn (December 21 to January 19)

There’s lots of running around and errands to be tackled, but once done you can spend some time at home, sorting out family issues. Changes could shake up home life and responsibilities, but romance is still in the air and it could get serious.



Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

You’re watching your budget and looking for bargains. Something special is waiting for you at the sales, maybe a new phone, computer or something bigger! Relationships are to the fore and romance could be in the frame. Just chill out and enjoy!



Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

It feels as though the cosmos is on your side, as everything is going your way. Work-wise, you’ll get things done if you can stay focused on your routine and small details. Take care of your health. Have fun and enjoy time spent with friends and neighbours.

POOL MAINTENANCE

Basic guide to swimming pool filters By: David Evermon

O

ne item that every swimming pool must have is a pool filter. A swimming pool filter is the main process that keeps your swimming pool clean of the various debris that are brought in by wind, rain, cleaning supplies, toys, and swimmers. A pool filter works to keep the water clear and promotes safety and health while in the water.

T

he pool filter has three main components that allow it to keep your water clear and safe for swimmers. First, there is a motor and pump that work to bring the water in and push it out during filtration. Then the filter itself falls into three categories DE (Diatomaceous Earth), cartridge and sand. A DE (Diatomaceous Earth) filter is probably the best for filtering even the minutest particles that could be in the water. Diatomaceous Earth is a natural substance that is found in the soil. It has the consistency of a fine, white powder. A filter made of Diatomaceous Earth comes in two different types of filters, a spin filter and a vertical grid filter. These two terms simply signify how the filter is set up. The spin filter does not work as well as the vertical and is virtually obsolete today.

A

sand filter makes use of sand to filter the water of particles and allows filtered water to run through easily. The cartridge filter works in the same manner as a Diatomaceous Earth filter but without the use of any substance other than fabric mesh to filter the water.

H

ere are a few things you should consider before purchasing a swimming pool filter:

F

irst, find the volume of the entire swimming pool. To find the volume you must consider the shape of your pool. If your pool is rectangular – Multiply the following – Length, width, average depth. If your pool is circular – Multiply the following– Radius, 3.14, average depth

N

ext, figure the capacity of your pool. This will allow you to calculate how much water your swimming pool holds. This is an important factor in purchasing a pool filter. To find the capacity, multiply the volume (you found in step one) by 7.48.

Y

ou will then have to determine the type of filter you want. Consider if your pool would benefit from a cartridge, DE, or sand filter. You should also consider if you want the filter to be vacuum or pressure. It is suggested that you should make the filter slightly larger than your initial calculation to allow for better filtration.

T

here are a lot of different aspects that must be taken into consideration when purchasing a swimming pool filter. It is important that you follow all recommended procedures outlined by the swimming pool manufacturer. This will help you in maintaining clear and healthy pool water that can be enjoyed by all swimmers.

Backyard garden tips –

All about compost By Jeremy Wycherly

 What is compost? Composting is the decomposition of organic material into humus. Backyard gardeners can use this natural phenomenon to their advantage to improve garden soils. Compost can be purchased or created in a home garden by recycling kitchen and garden waste. Composted materials make excellent mulches to cover or amend the soil. Using organic waste to make compost makes sound ecological sense. About thirty percent of the waste that reaches the landfill could be composted, lengthening the time that the landfill is useful. In addition, it improves the soil by increasing tilth, fertility, water holding capacity, and drainage.

 Making compost Composting can be a casual or scientific endeavor. Kitchen and yard wastes can be piled up in the garden and allowed plenty of time to decompose. More sophisticated systems use containers to turn and mix it to hasten decomposition. Organic wastes naturally decompose through microorganisms, insects and earthworm feeding which break it down.

phisticated methods. A compost bin makes the process tidier and more efficient. Make the bin about six feet high, and three to four feet square. Use building materials that allow air to get into the composting mixture such as wire, or board slats with air spaces between slats. Add moisture and a few handfuls of lime each week to speed up the process.

 Composting made easy

To function properly, the decomposing organisms need oxygen, water, nitrogen and heat mixed into the organic matter. If the right amounts of oxygen and water are incorporated, the decomposition takes place rapidly and the mixture heats enough to kill weed seeds and plant disease pathogens.

 Do-it-yourself compost Incorporate air into the mixture to hasten the decay process and keep it from developing foul odors. Compost should be turned frequently to keep oxygen levels high enough. The faster the proc-

ess takes place, the better the source of fertiliser it becomes. When creating compost, you should add nitrogen fertilizer to the composting mix to hasten the decomposition process. A ratio of one part nitrogen per fifteen to thirty parts compost is about the right mix. Using the easiest method of composting, make a pile of organic wastes, turn it periodically to keep oxygen levels high and reduce foul odors, and let nature do the rest. The resulting compost will improve soil tilth, but will not be as high in fertilizer value as compost made using more so-

Over the years I’ve seen various ways to make great compost. My mother has a knack for finding just the right mix of everyday items to create her own back yard compost pile. The mix includes kitchen waste (carrot peel, banana peels, egg shells, potato skins, etc.) grass clippings, fallen leaves and twigs. Frequently mixing and turning pile helps provide enough air to the mixture to create a quality compost and keeps the pile from emitting less than pleasant odors.

OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS

Are you paying more tax on your offshore account? By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

The Isle of Man and Guernsey have now ceased to apply the retention tax

F

or many people, the term ‘offshore banking’ has been synonymous with paying less tax…. or no tax at all. While there are practical reasons for expatriates to have an offshore bank account, it’s fair to say that for many the tax side of things was the key attraction. Who would have thought that the time would come when, for many people, keeping money offshore would result in them paying more tax? Well, that time has arrived. Under the Savings Tax Directive - which applies to everyone who is resident in an EU country - many offshore centres still apply a withholding tax (also known as a retention tax). If you have a bank account in one of these jurisdictions and have

not elected for disclosure of information to the Spanish taxman, then any offshore interest attributed to you (whether you withdraw it or not) is liable to a withholding tax. The Isle of Man and Guernsey have now ceased to apply the retention tax and instead declare the income to your

country of residence. In any case, this income should be declared in Spain. The withholding tax rate increased from 20 per cent to 35 per cent on 1st July, which means people who are paying the retention tax have just had a tax hike of 75 per cent! Since in a large number of countries the general tax rates

are lower than this, we are now at a stage where many investors would pay less tax by declaring their offshore interest rather than not doing so. In Spain your worldwide interest earnings are added to your other savings income (including capital gains) and taxed at a fixed 19 per cent on

the first €6,000 and 21 per cent on income over that amount. This means that if your offshore interest has the withholding tax deducted from it, you are now paying 67 per cent or 84 per cent more tax than the Spanish tax rates on the same income – but no reimbursement is due in Spain for the extra tax you have paid. For whatever reason, some investors will still not want to request their bank to apply the automatic exchange of information regime instead of the withholding tax one. Not that they will have a choice where offshore financial centres have decided to exchange information – for example, Guernsey. The question is whether it is possible to legitimately not pay tax locally in Spain and also not be liable to 35 per cent withholding tax? The answer is yes – currently the withholding tax of 35 per cent only applies to assets which are held in your own name. Secondly, there are investment structures which legitimately protect you from

local taxation in Spain. These structures can also protect you if you are a fiscal nomad. Tax planning has however become a bit of a minefield over recent years, so it is important that you take professional advice from a firm which specialises in local and international tax planning such as Blevins Franks if you wish to successfully shield your assets from tax. The tax rates, scope and reliefs may change. Any statements concerning taxation are based upon our understanding of current taxation laws and practices which are subject to change. Tax information has been summarised; an individual must take personalised advice.

Dear Dr. De La Flor Dear Dr. De La Flor My doctor told me that my HbA1C is borderline. Is that a diabetes test? Can you explain this to me? Julia

Dear Julia, The acronym ‘Hb A1C’ test is a common blood test used to diagnose diabetes and then to gauge how well a patient is managing his blood sugar levels. The test result reflects your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months! S p e c i f i c a l l y, t h e t e s t measures what percentage of your haemoglobin — a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen — is coated with sugar (glycated). The higher your level, the poorer your blood sugar control. And, if you have previously diagnosed diabetes, the higher the A1C level, the higher your risk of diabetes complications. After a diabetes diagnosis, the test is used to monitor your diabetes treatment plan. Since the A1C test measures your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months instead of your blood sugar level at that point in time, it is a better reflection of how well your diabetes treatment plan is working overall. Since your result came back ‘borderline’ my advice is to talk to your G.P. and set a realistic nutritional plan for the next six to eight weeks, after that you should be tested again to make sure your sugar levels have been tamed.

Dear Tim, First of all I want to praise your ‘preventive’ mindset. Prevention and education are essential pillars of heath. You should know that the most common symptoms of bladder cancer include: • Blood or blood clots in the urine (hematuria).

n the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Abraham Lincoln. Due to my job I help people pass away often… On their deathbed, no one ever mentioned any work issues - salaries, promotions, business meetings or trips, unpleasant in-laws, picky neighbours, nasty clients, goals, missed assignments… Most, mentioned family issues though.

RESOLUTION:

Hematuria occurs in 80 per cent of people who have bladder cancer and is the most common symptom. Usually it is not painful. • Pain during urination (dysuria). • Urinating small amounts frequently. • Frequent urinar y tract infections (UTIs). Symptoms that may indicate more advanced bladder cancer include: Pain in the lower back around the kidneys (flank pain); Swelling in the lower legs; A growth in the pelvis near the bladder (pelvic mass). Other symptoms that may develop when bladder cancer has spread include: Weight loss; bone pain or pain in the rectal, anal, or pelvic area; anaemia. The symptoms of bladder cancer may be similar to symptoms of other bladder conditions. You didn’t give me any more details of your symptoms but please, if you or any reader notices some of these symptoms, make sure you inform your GP immediately. Best wishes.

I often observed highly professional individuals when it comes to work oriented activities but not so when it comes to planning family rest and family leisure.

Adeje Summer University

A bridge too far? uring a keynote adD dress during this year’s Adeje Universidad de Verano (Summer School), Juan Martínez Torvisco, professor of social psychology at the University of La Laguna said that nighttime leisure could be a dangerous bridge between drug dependency and violence, affecting young people in particular.

Juan Martínez Torvisco during one of his talks at the Adeje Summer School

While it wasn’t his intention to “demonise” nightlife in general, nor harm a sector which gave employment to many hundreds of people, and which most people enjoyed without danger, it was associated with a kind of behaviour that could generate conflict such as the ‘botellón’ (street drinking/ parties), late night noise, or fights, vandalism, and substance abuse. Torvisco, who is also one of the course directors of this year’s summer school, referred to data from a study analysing risks and nighttime leisure activities, with drug taking at the top of the risk list. The study makes reference to the relative ease in obtaining drugs during nighttime activities as well as the relative need for parental assistance in prevention programmes. He said it was shown time and time again that the parents who were most likely to attend workshops pointing out the dangers of teenage drug abuse and were willing to adopt preventative measures were the parents of those children who were least in need of help, or who didn’t have these kind of problems. According to Torvisco other parallel attitudes of social tolerance to drug and tobacco use were also a danger. He said that when, for instance, local authorities organised nighttime sporting activities, events that didn’t involve alcohol, they were hugely popular with young people, which showed that there was a genuine and widespread interest in “healthy” nighttime pursuits among local youth. This then helped promote the notion that it is more than possible to have fun without drink or drugs.

Summer roadshow!

RIP Basil

 Revised adoption

 Forthcoming events

procedures!

- Saturday the 30th July

Live Arico will be at the Top Square Golf del Sur, with a variety of acts hosted by Suzy Q, including Jo Cassidy, Robbie Dominic, Aidy Evans, Jan Munroe, Colin Stevens and more to be confirmed. Many prizes on the raffle so go along and see them all and have loads of fun into the bargain.

- Sunday August the 14th Live Arico will be having a fun afternoon at Our Place, in Costa del Silencio. With Suzy Q, Aidy Evans, and more to be confirmed. Watch this space.

- Friday the 26th August Live Arico will be back at Restaurant Maria, Golf del Sur, for an end of summer BBQ and salad buffet. Mark the date in your diaries, details regarding tickets etc to follow.

- September the 13th Live Arico will be at the Oasis Pool Bar, Fairway Village, Golf del Sur. There is also a ‘top secret big event’ in the planning for September – watch this space.

Following some confusion Live Arico are clarifying the situation. Their policy is to ask for a minimum donation of €70 for an adopted dog, which is paid direct to Hospivet Sur on collection of your new pet, who will as a result be chipped, vaccinated with anti rabies and V7 vaccine and issued with a passport. From this amount a small proportion is used to reduce their debt with Hospivet. If your pet already has been vaccinated, or chipped, Live Arico still charge €70 and obviously then a larger amount is paid off our account. This is in line with other refuges who charge an adoption fee. Hospivet also offer flea and worm treatments from €11 for a month’s cover of Advocate, and will discuss neutering and spaying options with you. Live Arico highly recommend this surgery who work tirelessly for them at hugely discounted rates.

Welcome back Nikki, adiós Basil W

e were delighted to hear from one of Tenerife’s best animal blogger and photographer, Nikki Attree who had been noticed by her absence of late.

She sent us an email last week to tell us that her great blog, http://tenerifedogs.blogspot.com/ would be starting up again, and explained why she had been a bit quite of late. Her lovely dog Basil passed away earlier this year and it has taken her, understandably, a while to get through her grief. On April 1st 2011 on her blogsite her husband Richard wrote, “Our little dog Basil just passed away. He had a massive epileptic fit/brain seizure yesterday, and it left him unable to function. We took him to the vet, and it was clear that he would never recover or have any quality of life at all, so we all agreed to put him to sleep. It was one of the most difficult things that Nikki and I have ever had to do, but it was the right decision. “The vet was great. He wasn’t overly

sentimental, just very kind. He looked us straight in the eye and said ‘if Basil was my dog I would put him out of his pain now…’”. Basil lived to thirteen and a half years old and had a wonderful life. Nikki has documented his life story at http://tenerifedogs.blogspot. com/2011/03/good-bad-andsmelly-dogs-life.html. Now Nikki and Richard have been able to take the next step and have introduced Gizmo to their home, and of course their website. Nikki wrote, “It has been just over three months since our little Yorkie Basil passed away. The gut

Health warning

Cats tend to be more picky, but even the most intelligent dog can sometimes be found chewing on something they shouldn’t and some birds and reptiles will try anything once.

wrenching pain and emotions I felt for Basil in the first few weeks after he died was really shocking, though not surprising he was part of our life for thirteen years and much loved. I just want to say to anyone going through the death of a pet don’t be shocked with the depth of sadness you feel and also don’t feel ashamed, it’s normal and its shows that you had a real bond with your furry friend. “I questioned for a while whether we should get another dog as the thought of going through this kind of pain again seemed too intolerable. But when you have owned a pooch for as long as we did, it seemed illogical not to adopt another dog and have the pleasure of sharing our home with a furry friend, especially as we have the time to give to look after a dog”: Gizmo writes (I think he dictates and Nikki does the typing!), “I am following in the paw steps of the late great Basil who was the first Ambassador for Tenerife Dogs. “I am a rescue dog so know too well about the plight of abandoned dogs in Tenerife! Nikki set up this website to support all the kind humans who help poor abandoned pooches like myself find a new home…”. So our condolences on the death of the lovely Basil, but delighted to meet Gizmo and we are looking forward to following his adventures on line.

as having ingredients which can produce a harmful effect in animals and some of the commoner varieties are very popular both here and in the UK and Ireland. The toxins can produce reactions from mild sickness to death and certain species can be more vulnerable to

certain flora than others and poisonous plants include daffodils, delphiniums, bird of paradise, buttercup, English ivy, foxgloves, holly, hyacinths, iris, lily of the valley and poinsettias. They have produced a list of the most common plants which is published on their website www.humanesociety.org and available in a printable format. Recommended reading for all pet lovers.

Katy column

Hi everyone,

This week I’d like to wish Stephen from the Eldon House a very happy belated birthday.

I

t was his 50th, and all the regulars had been invited to his special day. He and Lynn must have slaved all weekend because the table was groaning with superb food, from a whole salmon to almost a side of beef, with all the trimmings. They had hired two entertainers, Charlie Hodge and Shaun Carling who both did a splendid job, and of course, it being my local, me too. We were all asked to wear something blue, as he’s a Chelsea fan, and had a superb time, Stephen was given a huge sack (blue of course) and in it were 50 presents. Many contained joke gifts, but equally many were from the famous club itself including a card card signed by all the players, wishing him a great 50th, and he was near to tears when he opened it. As a special surprise, we all chipped in and bought him something we knew he would treasure and appreciate - a Kindle Electronic book and holder. He’s an avid reader and you can even read the print in sunlight. You download the books from Amazon.com and they are very reasonable. (I know my daughters read my column on line, so would it be inappropriate if I slipped in that I’d like one for Christmas this year? Nudge, wink) In the late evening, sitting on the terrace, during breaks between the food and entertainment, some of us got talking about “the olden days” and we got to discussing underwear in the fifties, and vests and liberty bodices caused much hilarity. Any girl who went out without a vest was considered “fast”. We all wore navy knickers that came almost to the knee and had a pocket in the leg for you hanky and your dinner money. The dreaded liberty bodice had rubber buttons down the front and had no shape whatsoever, a fact that made our parents breathe a sigh of relief when it became obvious we girls were “developing”. The glamour puss of Playa Paraíso, my pal Joanne, said she remembered liberty bodices which were longer and had suspenders attached to it. We were all shocked, as we’d never heard of such a thing and immediately labelled her a trollop, which delighted her no end. The mention of suspenders drove the boys into a frenzy, and they spent half an hour bemoaning the invention of tights, and wishing suspenders could become compulsory for ladies. It reminded me that the early suspenders were nothing like the pretty and feminine ones around today. They were a piece of thick elastic that fastened round the waist, with four other pieces hanging down to fasten your stockings to. The downside was that they had little rubber buttons, so they could be washed safely in the posse tub without breaking, since no one ever had a washing machine. You’d get all dressed up in your circular skirt with the flouncy petticoats underneath, and put your stockings on, as anyone who went out with bare legs once you were sixteen or over was again considered “fast”, and hurry to the local Hop on a Saturday night. Sometimes when you were running to catch the bus, one of the little rubber buttons would pop off and disappear never to be seen again. Then you’d limp upstairs, pay your fare, and look for a little silver sixpence. You’d twist this into the top of your stocking, and hook it on, keeping them safely held up for the night’s dancing. The boys called the stocking top the giggle band, saying if they got that far, “you’re laughing”. The lads always said, if they ever got as far as the stocking top, they’d got their bus fare home. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially of each other. katykennedy@telefonic.net Mob 616110930

Kendel S.L.

A Damp Story I

n 1985 the Savill family came to Tenerife and set up a business initially carrying out general construction and refurbishing work throughout the island. Due to the continuous requests from clients for a solution to the various damp problems which were evident in the lower areas of the walls, they decided to investigate the true cause of the rising damp problems, and it soon became obvious on carrying out tests on various properties that damp proof courses were nonexistent in any of the properties tested. Unlike typical construction in the U K where cavity walls could be injected with silicone cream or foam as a cure, the block wall and concrete column system of construction here in the Islands required a completely different application in order to prevent the capillary reaction. Obviously it is impossible to insert any type of physical damp proof course into the blocks, certainly the reinforced concrete columns could not be successfully treated by any

products available at the time. So what could be done to prevent the frustrations of continuously repairing the recurring damp damage to wall surfaces and decoration? In 1998, after discussing the damp problems with the Director of Lectros U.K. a damp and general building remedial company now incorporated in the Wykamol Group U.K. several meetings took place here in Tenerife in order to train and subsequently install the first electro-osmotic system on Tenerife in a ground floor apartment on Amarillo Golf. The Lectros Osmotic system has since proved to be the only guaranteed solution for

rising damp. Savills later became an S.L. company Kendel S.L. and were awarded the contract by Lectros U.K. to operate as the sole licensed installers of their products here in the Islands, which now extends to include solutions for any type of damp problem.

Mould treatment and ventilation Apart from damp problems many enquiries were received from owners experiencing problems with mould on ceilings and inside wardrobes and closets, which proved to be caused by lack of ventila-

tion, particularly when villas or apartments were left closed up for lengthy periods. Kendel S.L. have remedied the problem in numerous properties throughout the islands, installing their neat security ventilation units which circulate a continuous humidity controlled supply of fresh air to the areas affected, at as very low running cost equivalent in consumption to a 15W light bulb. With over 25 years experience on the Archipelago Kendel can now take pride in offering a comprehensive guaranteed building and damp proofing service whatever your requirements.


Foodforthought

ISLAND CONNECTIONS :: EDITION 648 :: 29/07/2011 - 11/08/2011

I

f the residents of Callao Salvaje and surrounds are looking for a new place to eat, particularly one that is child friendly in terms of the food on offer as well as many attractions, or should that read distractions, for the children as you eat your food, they don’t have far to go.

Some residents have already discovered that the restaurant at the Pearly Grey Ocean Club is open to the public every evening, and serves up an excellent menu at great prices. While the restaurant does primarily cater for the holidaymakers and timeshare owners of the popular club, members of the public are more than welcome every evening to dine, and stay on afterwards for the entertainment if they wish. We dined with Adrian, the bar and hotel manager, as well as chatting to Jayne, his associate and enjoyed great food in a lovely relaxed family atmosphere. We also invited a young six year old family member to join us to judge the kids’ menu and more and she was not disappointed. When we arrived we were delighted to find that we had a choice of dining indoor or out by the pool. The adults stayed inside while our younger food critic dashed in and out, enticed by the attractions of the snake man and the on-site playground. “Call me when my dinner is on the table” were our instructions, and we were happy to let her play. The menu is international in flavour and is very family friendly. I started with the Fried Camembert – perfectly prepared and ser ved with cranberr y sauce, Adrian enjoyed Skewered Prawns in Batter which came with a house-styled sweet chilli sauce – quite delicious. Adrian,

who hails from Johannesburg and has spent many of his career years in the restaurant trade in various guises, says that every restaurant should have “its own ‘thing’”, and for Adrian and for the Pearly Grey diners, meat, more specifically steaks and ribs, is the ‘thing’. All the beef is “A grade” promised Adrian, and with that in mind I ordered a Fillet Steak, while Adrian went for the Chicken Schnitzel. Both are available with a choice of sauces – I ordered blue cheese for the steak, and there was mushroom sauce for the chicken, and diners can also choose between chips, Canarian potatoes or rice with the main dishes. Our younger diner was happy with a burger, which also came with chips. The steak lived up to its billing and was prepared just as I ordered, medium rare. The steaks are flame grilled which really does make a difference to the taste and the contrast between the cooked outside and the tender meat inside. A small salad accompanied the dish – vegetables can be ordered separately. The burger was devoured, six year old diner more than happy, and she returned to the playground to await the call back to the table for desert. As well as meat the menu includes a range or fish options – Sole, Merluza (Hake), Salmon. Calamari (Squid) and King Prawns and a portion of Fish and Chips if so desired. Alternatively you can order Lasagna, and a range of pasta dishes (spaghetti, penne or fettuccini), all home-made, as well as Pizza. The menu indicates which dishes are gluten free and also offers an extensive vegetarian selection which includes Curry, Lasagna, and Mushroom Stroganoff as well as excellent main course salads. For the kiddies the kitchen prepares those sampled and enjoyed burgers, fish, a mini fillet steak, kids rib-

lets, pizza, a chicken burger and spaghetti bolognaise all ser ved with either chips, salad or vegetables and the kids’ meal also includes icecream – our companion elected to sample the chocolate variety and cleared her bowl! For older diners the desert options include Chocolate Fondant, Tarte Tatin, Baileys Cheesecake, Bannoffe Pie, Profiterole Cake or Cheese and Biscuits. Adrian is also interested in making sure the wines are well chosen and uses a sup-

plier that brings somewhat different wines – so you are not going to find a supermarket wine on the list in Pearly Grey but you will find some excellent choices from the mainland at more than acceptable prices. The house wines are Echo Falls and Stowells (brands UK visitors will recognise) but one of Adrian’s particular favourites are from the Ribera del Queiles (32, and 6), which you probably won’t find in many other restaurants here in South Tenerife as Adrian likes to maintain some

level of exclusivity with his suppliers. Helpfully, the menu lists wine recommendations too at the bottom of each section, so with the steaks they recommend a full bodied Rioja, while a Chardonnay is the preferred suggestion for fish dishes.

With many of the resort guests choosing to dine here there is always a nice buzzy atmosphere, and as we were finishing our meal the entertainment was beginning to warm up – compere Jimmy Boy starts at 9pm with the main acts coming

on at 10pm. The restaurant is open to the public ever y evening (except Saturdays), with the kitchen serving from 7pm to 10pm, and reservations are recommended. Adrian is also working on introducing a residents’ discounts card (with 15 per cent on main meals) in the very near future, so watch this space. For a relaxed, very family-friendly, fun place to eat, where the kids have loads to do in between courses and you can relax and have a drink if you live in Callao Salvaje knowing it’s just a short stroll home, or take the car as there is lots of off-street parking opposite the resort, this is an excellent choice.

DGT

Stopping distances Most of us know that by keeping a safe stopping distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you is the key to avoiding accidents and multiple collisions. According to the Ministry for the Interior, this type of accident accounts for 31.2 per cent of those with victims – and in 2010, left 83 dead and 434 seriously injured.

T

o educate us and encourage us to maintain safe stopping distances, some new stripes have been painted on stretches of roads in Spain which are known to be notorious for accidents – for reasons of frequent bad weather or visibility, or the layout of the roads concerned. The stripes, or galones as they are known, are actually like an upside down ‘V’, painted in the centre of your lane and pointing forward. The idea is that they are spaced according to the maximum permitted speed limit for that section, and that you keep at least two of these V’s between your vehicle and the one in front of you.

R

oads in 23 provinces across Spain had their new stripes added on the night of July 18, and more will be done once their efficiency has been assessed. Spain follows France, Portugal and Denmark, countries which implanted the system in 2009.

esigned to appeal to mid-size 5-door hatchback private and business users, the new C4 is robust and versatile, driver-focused, comfortable, stylish, and loaded with upmarket features and functions.

The new C4’s compact external dimensions conceal generous internal volumes with spacious accommodation, built-in versatility and practicality, and a class-leading boot volume of up to 408-litres VDA. The high quality interior finish is immediately apparent from the tactile soft-touch material on the top of the dashboard and generous amounts of chrome trim. New C4’s driver-focused cockpit immediately delivers a feeling of on-road comfort and confidence. Personal comfort can be tailored to individual requirements. Users can adjust

the colour of the instrument display, select their own ‘polyphonic’ sound alerts and set the intensity of the automatic air conditioning. For optimum comfort, this car can be ordered with massaging front seats - a first in this sector.

New C4 is intelligently designed with a range of new technologies, several of which are unique to the segment. These include a new blind-spot monitoring system, a cornering light, cruise control and speed-limiter with favourite speed settings and Citroën’s innovative eTouch Emergency and Assistance System. Some models feature a new raised centre console that houses a cooled and illuminated storage area which can take four half-litre bottles. Other options include a Connecting Box that provides Bluetooth® and a USB socket, front and rear parking sensors, parking space

measurement, Xenon dual-function directional headlamps and a tyre pressure monitoring system. This car is impressively soundproofed. Road noise and vibrations are filtered out and drivers can truly appreciate the standard specification Surround Sound audio system. Alternatively, there is the optional premium Denon HiFi, new to Citroën. The latest Citroën technology is used to reduce the C4’s ecological impact. With emissions from just 109g/km, it is one of the most environmentally-conscious models in the segment. A Gear Efficiency Indicator, standard on all manual models, signals the optimum moment to change gear and encourages economical driving. New C4 has real ‘Positive Power’ thanks to its range of refined and efficient powerplants - three BMW co-developed pet-

Market looking up

rol engines and three efficient HDi diesel units. Power output ranges from 90hp to a punchy 155hp. Automatic, 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and 6-speed EGS transmissions are all available. A second generation Stop and Start system with regenerative braking - e-HDi - helps to improve fuel efficiency by up to 15 per cent on city trips, with emissions reduced by around 5g/km. One of the safest vehicles in its class, new C4 has been awarded the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP rating, including a 97 per cent score in the ‘Safety Assist’ category - the highest score for any vehicle of its type. The new Citroën C4 is offered in three well-specified trims – Business, Seduction and Exclusive - and is attractively priced, starting at €14,450. For more information, go to www. citroen.es

The Citroën C4

safe stopping distance depends on traffic and road conditions, and two factors are involved: reaction time and braking time. For example, at 50 km/h on a dry road, reaction time takes a distance of 14 metres and braking takes up 10 metres. That is to say that we cover 24 metres before we have stopped, but this distance increases if the road is wet or if we are driving faster.

Bizarre first round for Nicky W

hen Tenerife-based Nicky Cook attempted to regain his WBO world super featherweight title which he lost to Roman Martínez back in March 2009, his fight with champion Ricky Burns, the 93 seconds of the first round which was the length of the entire fight, was certainly bizarre.

Soccer ::

Spartans take lead in La Liga title race! So ccer Exper ience

Soccer Experience Sponsored by: Island Connections Media Group & www.windowsplus.co.uk

During that short period Burns floored Nicky three times with vicious right hooks to the body. The first one after only six seconds caught Nicky in the back and he went down on one knee in obvious pain. Burns was not at fault that the punch caught Nicky in the small of his back for he had turned into the punch, likewise a similar punch which floored Nicky a second time. However after viewing the round in slow motion I do believe that the third and final punch thrown by Burns was way past the border line permitted and thundered into Nicky’s back nearer the base of his spine than the side of his body. Not that it made much difference for the fight was more or less over before that stage. There’s always been controversy in boxing regarding the fighter who has the record for the fastest knockout. However it all depends on how you define KO, for the late Nat Fleischer, the American boxing historian, always insisted that it should be classed as a KO when a boxer has been stopped through the action of a referee, because of an injury or any cause other than fouling. But British boxing historian Gilbert Odd held a different view and in Great Britain and the rest of Europe when a boxer retires his record would be marked RET or RSF when the referee has stopped a fight. It is generally accepted that the fastest KO on record took place in the USA in 1946 when Al Couture kayoed Ralph Walton in 10½ seconds which seems impossible, but apparently Couture was half way across the ring when the bell sounded and belted Walton as he was still adjusting his gum-shield. Yet if you accepted Nat Fleisher’s definition the two fastest KOs on record are two that didn’t involve a full count. In Brisbane, Australia, in 1991, Paul Rees stopped Charlie Hansen in just five seconds. The fighters had exchanged only one set of punches when Hansen complained of double vision to the referee who stopped the fight immediately. A ringside doctor diagnosed Hansen as suffering a scratched eyeball. Three years later Ever Beleno of Columbia dashed across the ring at the first bell and put Guillermo Salcedo on the canvas flat out with his first punch and the referee immediately stopped the fight with only five seconds on the clock. So Ricky Burns’ 93 seconds stoppage of Nicky Cook is some way off the record, and that first round was very unusual to say the least. It was a sad sight to see Nicky carried out of the ring on a stretcher in so much pain and taken to hospital where apparently he was diagnosed as having a prolapsed disc. Whether he carries on in the boxing game is up to him to decide. But he must be proud of his achievement of having held titles as British, European, Commonwealth and World levels. We look forward to welcoming Nicky back to Tenerife soon, when he will be opening up his boxing themed bar to be called Ringside in the south of the island. We wish him the best of luck in his new venture.

starting to look like a side capable of winning things. Credit must go to the whole team for the persistence and true grit and determination as they now look to be getting their just desserts.

Spartans have a four point lead and a game in hand

occer Experience’s La Liga once again proved to be filled with drama this week with two of the big three at the top of table dropping valuable points at this late stage, giving the Spartans a run away lead and with games in hand.

La Liga summary Having played a game more than the other challengers Blair’s Exiles Masters knew only a win would do to keep their title ambitions alive, yet opponents Tenerife Warriors have been making huge strides towards their previous best in recent weeks and were looking to do the double over the title challengers. What a game it turned out to be, with both teams attacking with end to end football. Warrior’s captain Eduardo has been reeling in the changes in recent weeks and his new signings are causing upsets as they led 1-0 at the break. In the second half the game came alive with goals rushing in and Exiles’ Dave Cheetam put Exiles back in front, only to be pinned back once again and with minutes left Warriors once again took the lead. In the dying seconds one of soccer experiences most dubious penalties was awarded to everyone’s amazement and it was kindly taken by the Warriors who took the win

6: 4. The other big game saw leaders Spartans take on Taylors Lounge who still had an outside chance of a third straight title, yet Spartans had other ideas and took the game to Taylors throughout the match with Taylors having no reply as Spartans won comfortably 7:3 giving them a four point lead with a game in hand and with only three games left they leave the challenging teams needing a miracle.

Over 35s league Summary

Captain Terry and his Toby Jug side hit top position this week with a great win over Café Lyte and look in top form this season to push the favourites all the way. Darren’s Iron Craft side had to dig deep to see off a determined Morfitt Rentals side who just seem to be having some bad fortune of late as they once again were beaten by a single goal at the death after leading the game, but with the vast experience in Lee Morfitt the side’s fortunes will surely change soon. Scruffy Macs came through with another win as they stride towards last season’s form after a sticky start to the season. The big news in this league is the emergence of a new title contender in the Pub Torviscas who, having finished bottom last season, have dug deep in the transfer market and are

Rebuilding the squad

lowly but surely the blanquiazules are reS building their squad after

the necessary cull of last seasons squad. New manager Antonio Calderon has been putting the players through their paces at the pre-season training camp at Barlovento on the island of La Palma. A hastily arranged friendly was played against Tenerife south side Atletico Granadilla last week which resulted in a narrow win for the home team but few conclusions can be drawn from the match. Season ticket prices

have been released and they are, as expected, lower than last seasons due to the drop in category. Prices range from 300€ in Tribuna (main stand), 200€ in

Other prices are available for pensioners, youth and the disabled. Match tickets are as follows - Tribuna 28€, San Sebastián 20€, Herradura 17€, Grada Popular 10€. The Spanish F.A. have agreed to the request of the club to play their matches next season at 12 midday instead of the normal 11am in the 2nd B league. It will be interesting to see how many abonos (season tickets) are sold after two consecutive relegations. It would be great to see more foriegn residents at the games but I cannot imagine that we could ever surpass la liga club Málaga CF who reportedly have 4,500 ex-pat season ticket holders this time around!

Up and coming basketball star Elisabet Vivas from Tenerife is delighted at her inclusion in the Spain team for the World Championships taking place in Chile. The teenager from the Uni-CajaCanarias club in Santa Cruz has represented Spain at various junior levels and made the final cut of 12 for the U-19 squad for the championships. Delighted Elisabet said she was “looking forward to playing against the best players in the world of my generation”. Vivas impressed last season in the women’s league and speculation is growing that she could be on her way to a
