Puerto de la Cruz

White nights G

et ready for a late night of fun at the first Puerto de la Cruz White Nights Festival.

By the light of the silvery moon

All the fun of Europe’s best water park – at night

If you were thrilled to bits sliding down the Tower of Power, or any of the other heart-stopping rides, during the day, can you imagine doing it in partial darkness? Or floating along the Mai Thai River with your partner by the light of the stars and the moon?

On Saturday, August 27, Siam Park will be open from 7.30pm to midnight. If you’ve already got your daytime ticket the additional cost will be just €16, however if you want to enter only for the evening session the price is €32. Twin ticket or Agüita cardholders just pay the extra €16.

Tickets are on sale from the park on the day, online at http://farraworld.com or at the authorised sales points in the OoH! shops at CC Plaza del Duque in Costa Adeje, CC Carrefour in Añaza, CC La Villa in La Orotava and CC Meridiano in Santa Cruz de Tenerife or Cafat hairdressers in CC Carrefour, CC Alcampo at La Laguna and CC La Villa.

The concept of White Nights began in Nantes with a series of ar ts festivals dedicated to various cities around the world. The idea of museums, art exhibitions being open into the night was so successful that it was later copied in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Rome, Madrid, Riga, Bucharest and Valetta. Shops and restaurants remain open too until the early hours to ser ve the cultural revellers. In the Canaries, the first city to try the experiment was La Laguna. The second edition of their event last year drew 120,000 people to the city centre to enjoy ever ything on offer and do some early Christmas shopping. They are sure to repeat the experience later this year. Other towns and cities swiftly copied them and White Nights festivals have since been held in Los Silos, Güímar, Teguise, San Sebastián de la Gomera, Puerto del Rosario and Icod

Fun until late in the streets of Puerto de la Cruz

amongst others. Now it’s the turn of Puerto de la Cruz and although the full programme hasn’t yet been settled we can reveal that there will be street music and bars, many fund raising for charities or fiestas, cultural offerings and exhibitions as well as the option of eating a splendid meal

late at night or the luxury of shopping and treating yourself to something special. From 6pm to 2am there’ll be activities in and around the old harbour, the Plaza del Charco, the Church Square, the San Telmo passage, Reyes Católicos Square and the Lago Martiánez pool complex, or-

ganised and coordinated by the Puerto de la Cruz council’s commerce department. Don’t miss what promises to be a fun night out in the oldest and one of the most beautiful tourist towns in the Canar y Islands – have a meal and stay the night and make it a really special break.

University Hospital Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria

Eye tumour breakthrough T

wo patients, both with extensive eye tumours and for whom surgery was not advisable, have been successfully treated at the University Hospital Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria in Santa Cruz with ortovoltaje, a radiotherapy technique which is not normally used for this purpose in ophthalmology. The treatment was the idea of, and applied by, ophthalmologist Jorge Sánchez-Pérez with radiotherapist Claudio Fuentes, who explained that their method has turned this Tenerife hospital into an innovative centre on an inter-

national level. The results of treating an eye tumour with this method have been published in the US medical magazine Córnea, and will be presented at the next national congress of the Spanish medical oncology society to be held in Malaga during October. The first patient treated was a 61 year-old man who had a bloodshot eye and the sensation of having ‘something’ in his eye for more than a year. This turned out to be a halfmoon shaped tumour which was 13mm long and 9mm wide, half of which extended over the cornea and the remainder over connecting tissues. Due to its size, surgery may have presented complications, the

resulting scar would have been extensive and the patient would have still needed chemotherapy. This treatment which has a low penetration level, was considered ideal for the eyes and has been used frequently in this hospital to treat the disease when it affects the skin (Bowen’s disease), although it involves the use of older equipment. The dose to be administered required careful calculation by the specialists, and they eventually decided to apply 14 sessions of 0.68 hundredths of a second over two weeks. Jorge Sánchez-Pérez, on analysing the patient, found that with the first dose of therapy,

Wards stay closed all the growth follicles of the tumour had been eliminated. He commented that the patient can see perfectly and there is now no sign of the tumour whatsoever. Later, a second case of Bowen’s disease in a man in his 80s who was losing vision, was treated with the same method. He had a large tumour, almost a centimetre thick which protruded from his eye. With an even smaller dose of radiation, his tumour has also disappeared completely. At the moment, the University Hospital Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria in Tenerife is the only centre known to be administering this treatment.

ew events in the series of recreations of local traditions have now been scheduled. Designed to boost the number of visitors and help the local commerce in the rural areas and aid the revival of the local traditions, these are some of the most colourful and yet intimate events that are held in the islands. The next date is in Vilaflor on September 24, when the almond harvest will be carried out. Generous local farmers allow their trees to be stripped in the old fashioned way with

long sticks and the results are carried in baskets back to the starting point. Most people take along a picnic, there’s generally a taste of the local wine on offer and the almonds are later sold in Aripe for a charitable cause. A firm date hasn’t yet been set for the cochineal collection, but it looks like October 2nd at the moment. With arms and legs protected with brown paper and string or sacking a group of locals in Arona scrape the cochineal beetles off the prickly pears. One retired collector explains the methods of breeding and another how they are

Health unions say that they have learned that the hospital management has decided to extend the ward closure, initially envisaged for the summer months to take account of the fall in demand, for a further month. 16 beds will now be unavailable for use in September. “This is a purely financial decision which is, at the very least, questionable bearing in mind that patients are being diverted to private clinics and the cost saving is less obvious therefore,” said a union source.

Twenty eight illegal immigrants were rescued at sea off the coast of Fuerteventura after their boat got into difficulty recently.

The local emergency services say they were alerted to the presence of a drifting boat with people on board in the early hours of the morning and a helicopter was dispatched to check the reports. A sea rescue boat was sent out shortly afterwards and picked up all the occupants, who are believed to be Moroccans and Algerians, some of whom are youngsters. They were landed safely in Morro Jable where medical teams were on hand to treat them for hypothermia and minor injuries. News in Brief >>

tax cut

A political party in the Canaries has called on the government to follow the line taken by Madrid and cut the rate of tax applicable to property sales in order to stimulate the market. The nationalist CCN party says that although the Canaries do not have VAT, the local equivalent (IGIC) imposed should be halved, in line with the reduction announced by the Spanish government a few days ago for sales of new homes. CCN adds that the stock of unsold new homes is proportionally higher here than in the rest of the country.

Loro Parque Foundation

Tenerife tourism

Luxury fundraising dinner

Strategy change O Tenerife’s tourism authorities are to launch a new strategy to capitalise on developments in the international holiday market.

The announcement was made recently by the head of tourism at the island’s Cabildo, Carlos Alonso, who says the objectives set out in the last major plan back in 2007 need to be reviewed to take into account the growing importance of phenomena such as internet booking, new marketing channels and the emergence of new competitors. In addition to topping the five million visitor mark, which Alonso says is a very realistic possibility for 2011, high on the agenda also is the modernising of what he called “mature” resorts, particularly Puerto de la Cruz, which will be the subject of a joint modernisation initiative with the local council. The island’s Tourist Board says it will maintain its presence in the big holiday fairs, including the World Travel Market in London, the ITB in Berlin and Spain’s FITUR.

nce again the Loro Parque Foundation will be holding their Fiesta Benéfica in aid of the conser vation of worldwide nature in the Hotel Botánico in Puerto de la Cruz. This year, the event will be held on September 16th at 8.30 pm in the gardens of this luxury hotel and will be filled with various personalities who add their voices and their purses year after year to the commitment of various projects run by the Loro Parque Foundation for the conser vation of species. The popular singer songwriter, Chago Melián will be raising up his voice for the evening’s guests in an exclusive concert,

along with the musical group Beatriz Alonso Quartet and the young harp player Yanira. There will be surprise appearances by other artists and a big raffle with major prizes. If you would like to take part in this important social and charitable event, entry is €95 and you can book your places by calling 922 37 38 41, extension 345, or by sending an email to media@ loroparque.com. More information can be found at www.loroparque-fundacion.org. On the last occasion this event was held, the Foundation managed to raise over €80,000 which helps them to continue

with their many projects to protect the natural world, improve the education of the coming generations and increase the prosperity of the most marginal communities. It’s also important to underline the activities of environmental education carried out every year by the

Foundation in Spain and other countries, via video conferences with education centres, taking the images of the animals straight to the classrooms to help the teaching of all children and especially those with limited mobility.

The words will come as some comfort to the families, who continue to be unhappy with the official investigation into the crash.

addition to the elderly, are those who consume alcohol or drugs regularly, given the dehydrating effect these cause. The OHS has once again launched in cooperation with the Ministry of Health its annual campaign to encourage people to take the potential risk of dehydration more seriously. “Around a third of the population admit to drinking water only to quench their thirst but by that time the body has already suffered the effects of water loss” said a spokesman.

Garafía

Wages controversy A few weeks ago, in an article on the use of public money to fund local governments which may not be all that necessary, we highlighted the case of the town of Garafía in La Palma, which has nine councillors - several of them full-time - for a population of just 1800 people.

It has now emerged that Garafía was unable to pay the wages of its staff at the end of last month because of a cash flow problem, caused

primarily by the late arrival of grants from the island Cabildo and the Canarian government. News of the crisis served to highlight the fact that the corporation employs 77 people in various categories of jobs and has a current debt of €1.6 million, almost half of its annual budget. The wage crisis sparked considerable media interest, attracting scores of newspaper reader comments calling for a rethink of the way councils are run.

Chris Smith, head of Womad International, said the decision by the council to slash the contribution by €525,000 was a major disappointment. “We have always loved coming to Las Palmas, and would like to continue, but without the financial commitment we have to consider other options. It is a pity because the festival generates millions of euros for the local economy,” he said. Womad attracts approximately

Ground staff strike off T

he much-feared national strike by airport ground staff was aver ted with days to go before the first of the two stoppages was due to take place.

All airports in the Canaries would have been badly affected by the threatened action over the dismissal of four employees in Barcelona and contingency measures were being put in place to deal with stranded passengers when news broke that

the unions had agreed to call off the protest after reaching a deal. Although Madrid and Barcelona would have been worst hit, particularly the former on the first stoppage day, which coincided with a massive influx of visitors for the visit of the Pope, Gran Canaria and Tenerife Sur were identified by the authorities as potential flash points on both 16 and 26 August due to the volume of traffic that would face disruption.

he wester n province of the Canar y Islands, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, includes Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. These islands are similar: greener and cooler in the north, there is often cloud, or mist over large forested areas, whilst southern coasts enjoy sun and higher temperatures throughout the year. Micro climates abound. Main tourist destinations are in south westerly locations: Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje and the Santiago del Teide area in Tenerife; Valle Gran Rey and Playa Santiago in La Gomera; La Restinga in El Hierro and Puerto Naos in La Palma. Western islands have northern rock faces. They stand high in the prevailing Trade Winds blowing from the north east. These northern rocks are the reason for the difference in climate, flora and fauna, between the western islands and islands in the eastern province of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. They are moistened by the clouds formed there. Gran Canaria has both east and west elements, but Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, the tiny island of La Graciosa and the Lobos islet are very different. With no north faces to catch Trade Winds moisture, they rarely wear the cloud cap, sported at a rakish angle by their western sisters. The main source of water for Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and the smaller islands is rainfall. Their dramatic, monochrome landscapes are the result of scarce moisture. Politically Europe, geographically

La Gomera

Too Late! By Barbara Belt

we are Africa and this is nowhere more apparent than in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. Exploiting moisture has always been a priority for all islanders. Ancient stone channels carried water collected to drier, sunny areas, where it was used for irrigation. Canarian wines were famous in Shakespeare’s England. Tons of Canarian produce arrived at Canary Wharf for many years. All this has been possible thanks to intelligent water storage and irrigation. It worked for centuries, so why are we wrecking it now? Old channels have been replaced by ugly, E.U.-funded metal pipes, quickly destroying ecosystems around channels. This was easily predictable but,

despite howls of protest from islanders and their councils, piped irrigation water is what we have. The rationale is that if funding is there, it should be used. A golden opportunity for the traditional pastimes of palm greasing, pocket lining and nest feathering. Over much of La Gomera, for example, the pleasant sound of running water and birdsong has disappeared. Our leader’s mansions, holidays, Madrid ‘sauna’ adventures and other little foibles, all financed allegedly by grateful contractors, do little to compensate the rest of us. When no open water runs, no weeds and grasses grow along edges of water ways. No insects burrow in damp areas. No insects or seeds mean no birds. The domino effect goes on, until we get dead palm trees, no shade, arid land and arid air. West becomes east as we wreck our landscapes. One of the benefits of the present economic crisis was that this downward spiral had ground to a halt. There was no money in the Euro-kitty for any of it. But the latest fashion in environmental hooliganism is, alas! now upon us: the canalisation of barrancos, or natural water courses. Dubbed an ‘urgent’ infrastructure

priority, funding has been magicked from somewhere. The islands are, as you read this, being defaced by thousands and thousands of tons of concrete. The many barrancos, or ravines, it appears, are ‘dangerous’ and we must be protected. Santa Cruz’s two thousand and two tragedy is always cited here. Houses, cars and buses were swept away by barrancos flooding with unexpectedly heavy rainfall that April. The fact that the water course was blocked by rubbish, rubble and illegal buildings is forgotten. There would have been damage, these were freak conditions, but nothing on the scale of what happened, had local councils bothered to notice the waiting disaster. When news of an imminent project to concrete Valle Gran Rey’s barranco was published in an official bulletin, causing widespread concern, new Mayor Miguel Ángel Hernández called a public meeting. Nobody remembered hearing anything about consultation when it was apparently applied for in two thousand and six. Local feeling is very much against further landscape wrecking and so, to a packed function room, the project was discussed. Did the town want this? Who had asked for it and what could be done to modify or stop it? How would tourists, here for peace and greenery, react to nearly two years of heavy construction work to obliterate the valley’s

landscape? All the above questions turned out to be irrelevant. It is too late. Eight million euros will be spent on covering the water course with thousands of tons of concrete, whether we like it or not. Water will be channelled into a narrow concrete race, where it will rush to the beach. “Some disturbance of the sand is likely.” Natural wells “will dry up”. Even project director, Carlos Soler, who works for contractor Cyes Infraestructuras, expressed his “concern about the effects on the wells”, the “defoliation of the valley mouth” and, the “beach in particular” and said he was worried. But forge ahead it will, as the town council would have to pay Cymes half a million euros in compensation if the project were cancelled. And of course they can’t. The previous incumbent, our leader’s protegé, left the coffers empty and debts on all fronts. Come and enjoy Valle Gran Rey’s remaining greenery while you can. Short of massed resistance-about as likely as divine intervention given our track record here for resisting He-Who-Must Be-Obeyed’s total control-nothing can stop it.

Traffic

Breast cancer charity

More cash for cancer aid

Mayor demands new road The mayor of Guía de Isora, Pedro Martín, has made representations to the island council to update their local road system.

T

he TF47 between Adeje and Santiago del Teide is being jammed in Alcalá and Playa San Juan, both under Martín’s jurisdiction, and counting these days with a population of around 10,000 inhabitants. The increase of the population in this area, added to the fact that the road is the main connection to the important tourist areas of Puerto de Santiago and Los Gigantes, means that the road system has become obsolete for the traffic it carries and unsafe for pedestrians in the area in and around the two isorana towns.

E

ve Tennent has just made another substantial donation to a Tenerife breast cancer charity. The handover of €3,000 took place in the Ámate offices in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the middle of August. All the money raised was the proceeds from her stalls on the markets in Playa San Juan on Wednesdays and Alcalá on Mondays, where she sells unwanted bits and pieces donated by folk from all over the south and west of Tenerife. Over the last

four years, her stalls have now raised over €30,000, which after paying management fees, still left a considerable sum for breast cancer charities here and in the UK. Ámate has received over €19,000, the Tenerife branch of AECC, more than €2,500 and over €3,600 to UK based breast cancer charities. She has also gathered around €4,000 for the same cause with alternative fund raising activities, all of which has been, or is in the process of being transferred to breast cancer charities.

With the downturn in the economy, donations have been thin on the ground recently, but most of us have some unwanted items that could be used to raise funds for this worthy cause sitting in garages, lofts, spare rooms and cupboards. Eve will arrange collection of any items that you may offer if you call her on 922138091 and of course, don’t forget to look her up at the stalls. You’re sure to find something that appeals to you and there are always some great bargains on offer.

Adeje/Santiago del Teide

Island ring road

T

he work to complete the section of the island ring road between the districts of Adeje and Santiago del Teide is continuing at a good pace,

and according to the mayor of Santiago del Teide, Juan Damián Gorrín, it could even be completed ahead of schedule, by the end of 2012.

The most important tasks are centred at the moment on drilling out the second tunnel at El Bicho, which runs parallel with another tunnel which has already been perforated. The mayor estimates that this part of the work will be completed during October or November, also on schedule. The new road is already visibly taking shape, and can be seen in the Santiago del Teide countryside, with a long straight section running from the two tunnels to the roundabout between the town centre and Las Manchas, to connect with the roads to El Tanque, Guía de Isora, Tamaimo and Los Gigantes.

M

artín underlined, “the actual road is a disruption and dangerous and the council have left unclassified land free in the General Ordinance Plan for the new roads to be built to go around these towns. If it is done now, the road will also serve as a connection with Fonsalía.” The Guía de Isora mayor also emphasised that Santiago del Teide had also requested that the work be carried out to make it easier for visitors to reach their coastal towns.

Playa San Juan

Man drowns Despite all efforts from

emergency specialists, a 53 year old man drowned on Playa Chica in the middle of the month.

E

mergency services were swift in arriving and the individual was also helped by some of f duty doctors and nurses who happened to be on the beach. They tried hear t massage and ar tificial respiration to bring him around, but it was all to no avail. The councillor for human resources from Guía de Isora council, Carmen Alicia González, witnessed the event and spoke to the local daily, La Opinión, stating her belief that the security forces had acted swiftly. “Everything happened very quickly,” she is reported as saying, “someone saw the almost deceased individual floating, later they took him out of the water and shortly afterwards they confirmed he had died”.

Lions Club Santiago del Teide

Helping to ease hardship

With Spain’s economy going through such a bad period, hardships inevitably occur, especially among the unemployed who have families to support. Members of the Santiago del Teide Lions Club have designed food vouchers to the value of €10 each, which are distributed by the local social services department to between 40 and 50 of those families in the Santiago del Teide area. The vouchers are recognised by the Transito supermarket chain, and the Supermercado El Valle in Santiago del Teide, and are for necessary food items only, toiletries, and fresh vegetables and fruit, but no alcohol, or cigarettes etc. The Lions Club members hold weekly quizzes at El Marques resort in Puerto de Santiago to raise enough money to redeem the vouchers. So far over €3,000 has been raised and spent, helping to alleviate the pressures on those in financial distress. If anyone wishes to send a donation to help in this cause, a special account has been assigned at the Banca March, Playa de la Arena: Account Number 0087731 0061 0215 10 0115530119 IBAN: ES 28 0061 0215 1001 1553 0119 All the monies raised will go exclusively towards the voucher project.

Los Gigantes

Giant squid find

A crew who, as part of a study, were filming the whale population living in the waters off the south of Tenerife, recently found the remains of a giant squid floating approximately two miles off the cliffs of Los Gigantes. It is thought that it was an adult female which, with its tentacles included, could have reached a length of eight metres.

The squid, of the Architheuthis type, was in a good state of preservation despite the fact that it had lost part of its tentacles and its eyes, and still conserved its original colours. According to experts, this type of squid has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, which can be as big as a baseball.

Holiday company

Advertising Tenerife

The multinational travel company Thomson Holidays has included two areas in the south west as part of their upcoming promotion for Tenerife. El Puertito, Armeñime and the coast of Guía de Isora are both to be included in the advertising for the UK, but the company has not ruled out the possibility of the images being used for other markets. It is expected that millions of people will be seeing the areas throughout Great Britain and those in charge of exterior promotion are over the moon. The beaches at Las Teresitas and La Tejita are also to be included in the advert.

Wild life

Back to nature

A green turtle which had been injured by a motor boat propeller was recently returned to the sea. It was cured in the Wildlife Recovery Centre, La Tahonilla, in La Laguna and returned to the sea by the centres’ specialists, in the waters off the western coast of Adeje in the company of representatives from the administration, Fundación Neotrópico and the local organisation Ocean Dream Factory. The turtle was in care for a month before being loaded onto a boat and freed in an area where other members of its species are known to live. It was a repeat visit to the centre for the reptile which had been treated for the same kind of injury some months ago.

Mafias

Chinese attack probed The secretive world of the Chinese community here is in the media spotlight following the brutal beating of a man at a restaurant a few weeks ago in Santa Cruz. Although the victim initially maintained he had suffered a heavy fall and did not want police involved, it has since emerged that he received a late-night visit in the city centre Pekin restaurant by approximately ten compatriots and was subjected to a horrific basement assault. Media reports say he was tied to a chair, stabbed four times in the head and badly beaten with an iron bar. Restaurant staff denied seeing anything but later admitted the attack had taken place and that they had cleaned up the pools of blood left by the victim as he made his way outside afterwards. Police say the incident bore all the hallmarks of a grudge attack but the lack of cooperation by the victim has proven a major obstacle in their attempts to clarify the incident. News in Brief >>

Las Teresitas

No payout for Perrault World-renowned architect Dominique Perrault will not receive a single euro in compensation for the decision not to redevelop the Las Teresitas beach. Speculation had been growing that the Frenchman could be in line for a handsome pay-out after the massive and highly controversial project was scrapped definitively due to legal problems surrounding the ownership of the land next to the popular beach north of Santa Cruz. However, the capital’s deputy mayor Julio Cruz is adamant that the architect will not get anything. “We recruited him five years ago to do the design for the redevelopment and we have paid him almost all his fees for that work. But he was not commissioned to actually execute the project, so

there is no reason for him to be compensated,” insisted Cruz. The vow came after Perrault, who designed the National Library in Paris, included the seafront development on his website as one of his “ongoing projects”. News in Brief >>

Tram fare hike Tenerife’s tram company appears not to have read the results of the summer survey of users of the service, which connects Santa Cruz and La Laguna. Although praised highly by passengers for cleanliness, convenience and punctuality, the tram was criticised on account of its fare policy, with prices considered too high by a large majority of regular users. Moreover, coinciding with the survey results, a leading consumer body revealed that Santa Cruz’s public transport system, including the tram, was among the most expensive in the country. However, just weeks after the survey details were published, the company announced a fare increase of five cents per journey, bringing the current price up to €1.30 (1.05 if a 10-journey ticket is used, up from €1). The hike has been criticised in various quarters in Tenerife, including the Sí Se Puede Party, whose spokesman said it would “discourage people from using public transport when the priority was to encourage them”.

Copycat strikes

Fake goods raids

Recent raids on shops in Playa de Las Américas have sent out the message that police are taking a tougher line on shops selling fake fashion items. Following various reports, including on local ex-pat forums, about police visits to a number of stores in the resort, it has been confirmed that six people have been arrested and face prosecution for breaches of intellectual property legislation. The six, all Moroccan men, worked

in or owned four shops in Parque Santiago 3 which sold an extensive range of fake brand sunglasses, handbags and belts, bearing the logos of top names such as Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Burberry’s, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Versace and Tous. The raids, by the organised crime unit, are believed to have been ordered after the brands’ official distributors in Spain reported the shops for selling the counterfeit accessories to tourists at prices well below the value of the genuine products. Almost 1,000 items were seized in the raids and were sent to be destroyed. The men were bailed following a court appearance in Arona.

Film success

To underline what a spectacular place we live in and visit, Tenerife tourism has just released the news that in the first half of the year 61 movies or videos were filmed in Tenerife. The island’s gentle climate, spectacular scenery and wide range of landscapes provide the perfect foil for film- makers who spent over €1.2 million in the first six months of the year. This figure doesn’t include two major productions including the second part of The Clash of the Titans. As well as film shoots, the island also played host to photographic session shots for Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health and Monarch Airlines as well as ads for Dorada and Tropical beers and Mercedes cars.

La Laguna

Fly posters One northern council has declared war on the fly posters who deface their city. La Laguna’s environmental department is taking steps to eradicate fly posting from their streets and those responsible for the events and/or services publicised will be facing steep fines as well as those caught actually posting them. The lovely old town which is a Unesco World Heritage Site, will no longer be defaced by illegal posters according to, Javier Abreu.

T

he organisers of the annual Pinolere Craft Fair in the mountains near La Orotava say they are miffed by the decision of regular sponsors not to back the event this year. The biggest gathering of arts and crafts professionals in the Canaries will host over 200 stallholders and exhibitors

between 2-4 September in the picturesque village but the committee responsible says it is disappointed at the reduced interest by several well-known businesses. At the formal presentation of the programme for this year’s 26th fair, culture councillor Francisco Linares, launched a stinging attack on one local

bank for its lack of support. “It is rather bizarre that CajaCanarias, through which all the Fair’s monies are paid, does not see fit to contribute a single euro to the event,” said Linares. As an extra incentive this year, La Orotava council has set up a special public transport lane on the road to Pinolere to encourage people to leave their cars at home and avoid the major traffic headache that regularly affects the Fair. The organisers expect tens of thousands of visitors at the unique celebration of traditional handicraft activities, including palm weaving, wicker basketry (the theme of this year’s event), leather work, ceramics, pottery, jeweller y-making and wood carving.

TRAINING FOR CHAMPIONSHIPS OR JUST KEEPING k

S

ince the quite amazing Tenerife Top Training, T3, facility opened in October 2008 an international wealth of top teams have used the centre to hone their training, get in shape and prepare for top European and World championships.

In fact this summer more than one national swimming federation were booked in prior to the World Championships in Shanghai and many of the individual swimmers went on to win medals. Tenerife Top Training has also got a number of teams already booked in for pre-Olympic sessions early next summer prior to travelling to London for the games – so if you want to see future Olympiads in action you know where to go. The state of the art facility is designed with glass walls in most zones to allow spectators to view the sports women and men in action (unless they specifically request a private or closed session, as in the case of the Manchester City football club a few years ago), and you can go along and have a coffee and see the stars in training. But Tenerife Top Training is not just for the stars of today, nor is it exclusively for the elite individuals and teams from outside Tenerife. This sporting centre is very much geared towards amateur and local usage as well, and in fact they are actively encouraging local young and older sports enthusiasts to come down and check the place out and find out more about the individual classes they can sign up for. The day we were there to see the place for ourselves we also saw the children’s summer camp in action, for kids from six to 14 years old, with an enormous range of sporting based activi-

ties and fun involved, taking place throughout July. We were given a guided tour of all Tenerife Top Training has to offer, and far from feeling out of place it was obvious that this is a very user-friendly place indeed, from the friendly reception staff to any of the trainers we met and the highly qualified physiotherapist Pietro Rossi, who is available to anyone who wishes to consult him and has a consultancy room and a small physiotherapy gym at his disposal.

Heike first introduced us to the water based sports, and certainly this has been the reason why a lot of Europe’s top swimming federations have chosen Tenerife Top Training to boost their fitness levels prior to competition. There is a ten-lane 50 metre pool which is kept at a training temperature of between 26ºC and 28ºC and there are training clocks at both ends of the pool. And while, as mentioned, this pool is often used by teams from Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and Spain it is also open to the general public as is the adjacent 25 metre pool, which is used for swimming lessons for children as well as aqua-gym sessions. There are fully trained coaches for children and adults as well, from beginners’ level upwards. Tenerife Top Training also boasts one of the only Flume pools open to the public – this is a form of resistance swimming, and used by elite swimmers to improve technique, but is also a excellent tool within a rehabilitation programme for those with mobility difficulties and persons working on physical coordination. Swimmers and trainers can also film the exercise to review the performance afterwards.

n

As well as team events the centre also hosts many top individual sports persons and one of those is former Swedish Olympic swimmer Glen Christiansen who has been coming over to give master classes for professionals and master swimmers. However recently

he himself noticed quite a level of local interest in the classes and now anyone who wishes can participate in the sessions and simply pay on a daily basis. In fact many of the top sporting stars who have come here to train have returned, often bringing family with them.

Teams too find that given the climate, the beach nearby and the range of hotels offering accommodation and family facilities combining training and a family holiday is more than possible. Moving outside there is a range of different outdoor fa-

cilities, including an Americanstyle obstacle course track, a number of padel and tennis courts, three beach volleyball courts and grass and artificial pitches. The latter have been used by many of Europe’s too football and rugby teams (Warrington Wolves, London

Irish, Manchester City…) and with a second free weight gym and coaching corner just off-pitch, and given the yearround nature of the pitches in Tenerife’s excellent cli-

mate, these and other teams find the facility invaluable for winter training. There are arrangements with a number of top hotels nearby to put up the teams with special menus when so required, as well as the chance for local athletes to meet and sometimes even train with elite teams. By the end of the year there will also be an outdoor running track in place. Back inside Heike brings us to the regular gymnasium which is also fully open to the public and as well as a top range of machinery and free weights, runs a series of classes which include spin, pilates and the current rave, Zumba. Heike explained that for €30 you can sign up for a month’s

morning gym and class sessions, or for €55 all day, seven day a week access to the gym, with trained fitness experts on hand to develop your training programme and monitor your progress. There are also two squash courts and an indoor cycling room. Each section/ floor of Tenerife Top Training has full changing room and shower facilities as well and the centre also has a sauna, Turkish bath, Scottish shower and Jacuzzi. This really is a top class facility and with great on-site parking and is easy to get to, as it is just off the main Adeje – La Caleta road. Open seven days a week with a flexible programme to suit individuals this is the place to go whether you’re an amateur who likes to stay fit, a visitor who wants to keep in shape on vacation or a professional team member looking for the right training facility to make it to the top of their chosen sport. The monthly fee for the use of T3 pool facility is €55/€75 (including adults’ classes Monday/ Wednesday and Friday at 19.00 with their coach Tomas Hernández), €30 for children (with a €15 registration fee). Call and see them, write to them online, info@ tenerifetoptraining. com, visit their website, www.tenerifetoptraining. com or find them on facebook for more information.

Elite Sports Guide >>

Training at high altitudes When elite athletes prepare for marathons and triathlons, and even the 2012 London Olympics, many choose to maximise their impact with training sessions at high altitudes. Altitude training has been used by endurance athletes for many years. The level of oxygen is considerably lower at high altitudes, and becomes even lower the higher you go. The consequence of training on top of the world is an increase in the body’s red blood cell count and this enables athletes to compete more effectively at sea level because more oxygen is delivered to the muscles. Some endurance athletes train for several weeks at high altitude, preferably at over 2,400 metres above sea level, although most train at lower levels as there is a shortage of suitable locations. At intermediate altitudes, the air still contains 20.9 per cent oxygen, but air pressure and the pressure of oxygen is still reduced. During training, there are several ways in which the body may adapt itself to the relative lack of oxygen. It could increase the amount of red blood cells and haemoglobin in the blood stream, or the metabolism of the muscles could be altered. Some experts claim that when athletes who train at altitude travel to compete at lower altitudes, they will maintain a higher concentration of red blood cells for up to two weeks, and that this gives them an advantage. Where a suitable location is a problem, altitude training can be simulated by using an altitude simulation tent or a simulation room, or a maskbased system. Barometric pressure is kept the same with these systems but the oxygen level is reduced, as well as its partial pressure. In the Canary Islands however, location is not a problem, and altitude training camps have been set up. Mount Teide for example, is situated 3,000 metres (6,200 feet) above sea level and is the highest point in Europe, making it the ideal location for high altitude training. Some of these facilities not only offer expertise in this field, but also have five-star facilities. One of these is TKO Gym in Tenerife, which can accommodate up to 20 people. It has a full boxing gym on the premises, and a gruelling regime to take on any opponent. The flat landscapes and excellent roads allow athletes to reach and train at these levels, making the location one of the best in the world for high altitude preparation. TKO GYM Tenerife, is based in the mountains of Chayofa, only 20 kilometres from the airport, and not far from all amenities. There are high altitude runs, full gymnasium, and top class trainers who will prepare candidates for a world class performance. Current champions such as David Haye, Nicky Cook and Kevin Mitchell are amongst the clients who prepare and train alongside amateurs climbing the ranks.

F

light and passenger figures for July brought cheer to the holiday industr y, with the rises confirming a summer recover y. More than three million passengers used the airports in the Canaries in July, an 11 per cent increase on the same month in 2011. Tenerife South headed the rises, with a rise of almost 18 per cent and total passenger traf fic of 709,000. Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura all posted double-digit increases also, with only Tenerife North and La Palma failing to improve significantly on July 2010. Tenerife led the Islands in the number of passengers welcomed in the first half year too, accounting for 38 per cent of the tourists, some two and a half million visitors. The island councillor for tourism, Carlos Alonso, explained that, “these are some ver y good figures which underline again that our

competitiveness as a tourist destination is very solid.” He added that “the objective now is, on the one hand to maintain this leadership within the archipelago, and on the other to ensure that this increase in passenger arrivals is echoed in the second half of the year”. Tenerife headed the list of the number of passengers from the Spanish peninsula, Britain, Italy, Belgium, Russia and Austria

and was in second place for visitors from Holland, Scandinavia, France, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Poland and Ireland. The total number of passengers from foreign airports to Tenerife rose to 1,845,000 with increases in practically all the emitting markets and the most relevant growth taking place in the tourists from Britain, France and Scandinavia. It’s interesting to note that according to the latest polls, the tourists arriving on the island are younger on average and there has been an increase in family tourism. Last year, the average age of our tourists in the first six months of last year was 48, that has now reduced to 46 years with an increase in the number of under 26 year olds of 27.6 per cent. The growth in younger tourism is linked to the growth in family tourism which has increased by 18.6 per cent. Children under 15 now make up 16.1 per cent of our visitors, an increase of 20.6 per cent on last year. There has also been

an increase in the number of tourists travelling with a friend but a slight reduction in the number of couples, although at 55.2 per cent it is still the largest group of holidaymakers. Over half of our visitors engaged in some kind of activity whilst they were here, the most popular being visits to theme parks, whale and dolphin watching, visits to spas or other health related offers, visits to museums, exhibitions and attending concerts. More visitors are exploring the island, with 55 per cent now enjoying excursions, an increase of 1.9 per cent on last year. Favourite choices are Teide, Santa Cruz, Puerto de la Cruz, Garachico, La Laguna, Masca, Teno and Buenavista, and Anaga and Taganana. Over a third of these excursions are carried out in rent a cars, good news for that industry with a rise of 1.5 per cent over last year and organised are also on the up with 4.5 per cent more visitors choosing to be driven, 17.8 per cent of the overall total.

Unemployed aid

Help continues C

entral Government aid to unemployed people who are taking part in training schemes is to continue. The move was announced by the Spanish President, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero in the Congress. It was a demand by the unions which the Government has decided to agree to, although in a tit for tat, they are expected to come up with some measures that the workers’ representatives will oppose.

For example one proposal is the lengthening of the time before a temporary contract becomes a permanent one and changes in the law to make it easier for younger people to enter the workplace, although as yet nothing fixed has been announced. These measures are expected to be passed by the Council of Ministers and will complement changes already announced to guarantee the reduction of the national deficit to six per cent this year.

Tourism employment A new statistical tool will allow the market to see more clearly the employment levels within the industry in Tenerife. All across the island every month, tourism establishments fill in sheets of statistical information. The information is vital to the administration for planning purposes for present and future strategy. From now on these statistics will include details of new contracts and job offers in the sector. Carlos Alonso, the tourism councillor explained, “this way we can give an answer to the

worries that exist about the repercussion of tourism on employment and at the same time offer an increasingly better service and more exhaustive level of information about the reality of tourism in the island.” The first results are now in and it would seem that in June, 4,045 new contracts were signed in the restaurant sector, 25.3 per cent more than the previous year. New contracts in general increased by 17.2 per cent with around 20,000 registered in the month.

Utilities

Less power The demand for electricity in Tenerife dropped 2.2 per cent in the first six months of the year according to Endesa. The electricity company claim that according to their figures, Tenerife still had the second largest level of demand for electricity. Demand increased in El Hierro by 8.8 per cent, Fuerteventura by 7.5 per cent, La Palma by 1.4 per cent and La Gomera by 0.8 per cent.

Business in Brief

Accommodation

All inclusive news Despite the worries over the damage that all inclusive holidays are doing to ancillary services the latest figures seem to show promise in Tenerife at least. Over half of the almost five million tourists who visited the island were on accommodation only, 25.6 per cent, or half board, 27.4 per cent packages. All inclusive made up just 18 per cent of the total. The rest of the travellers were on bed and breakfast, full board or flight only deals. The information underlines that less than one in five of our visitors choose all inclusive and those who do seem to be spending more money on excursions, shopping and leisure activities than the average tourist level. The statistics show they are more likely to go on activities and excursions around the island showing that the image of

them staying shut inside the hotels would seem to be false. All inclusive holidays are more popular with Italians, Belgians and Danish clients, the Scandinavians, Russians and Irish are those who are least likely to choose this offer. It is also more popular with first time visitors, those who are repeat clients tend to avoid it and it is most demanded by the younger tourism sector and families, 59 per cent of all inclusive visitors last year were under 45. There are 94 hotels in the island currently offering all inclusive deals, about 35 per cent of the total, but Tenerife isn’t characterised by hotels which are pure all inclusive and the majority of the hotels have tacked on this option to their standard bed and breakfast, half board or full board offer.

Emancipation aid >>

Property Market:

M

ore young people are receiving State Aid to help them on their way to independence in their own home. The number of youngsters on the Renta Básica de Emacipación (Basic Emancipation Payment) of €210 a month has now risen to 301,254 in the whole of Spain. From January to June inclusive, 34,303 more young people are now getting the State assistance, an increase of 12.8 per cent in just the first six months over the 2010 figures. Catalonia is the region where most grants are received, 56,098, an increase of 12 per cent on December’s statistics, followed by Madrid with 50,665 and an increase of 13.2 per cent and Andalusia with 37,693 and an increase of 16.4 per cent. The biggest increase in demand was seen in Ceuta with 19 per cent more youngsters receiving the grant.

Young renters The 170,726 women make up 56.7 per cent of those receiving help as opposed to 130,528 men, who make up the total. The effort required for emancipation in respect of how much of their income is required to pay basic living costs is an average of 42.1 per cent, 45.2 per cent for the women and 38.6 per cent for the men. For those receiving the RBE, the effort is reduced to 25.2 per cent on average, 27.3 per cent for women and 22.8 per cent for the men. Landlords who rent to singles or couples where one or both of the parties are under 35 pay a reduced amount of tax on their rental income.

Internet services >>

Land value for tax

The new valuations of property for rates or tax purposes will soon be available by Internet.

The ‘Catastro’ (registry office) has begun to offer electronic notification of the new valuations for all the 216 boroughs which have decided to revise their valuations this year. The valuations will become effective on the 1st of January 2012. The valuations will have the same validity as those received by post and will also include details of the IBI (local property tax) due for 2012. This new initiative by the Head Office (Dirección General) of the registry, part of the Ministry of Economy and Taxation, in cooperation with the local councils, means

a move forward in the implantation of electronic administration in the registry office and will eventually reduce costs for the administration by removing the need for a certified letter. If everybody eligible chose to receive their notification in this manner it would mean a saving to the public funds of €9 million and each person who chooses to receive it this way will save the €17.11 charge made when this document is requested from the registry office. The information will be available from any computer, 24 hours a day, seven days a week using an electronic signature or a personal password which is free to obtain. For those without Internet or access to a computer, if you go to any registry information point, you will be given free access to obtain your certificate.

Land registry >>

No language barriers

Prospective buyers of properties in Spain can now get information from the Land Registry Office in English. The idea is to encourage foreign buyers to invest in properties here to help revitalise the construction industry and clear some of the almost 500,000 new houses that are still on the books. The service is available at the over 1,000 Land Registry Offices in the country. The information arrangement works via an online system. The foreign user gets in touch with the Registry and makes their request and a group of experts then arrange for the Land Registry Certificate to be issued, translated into English. The Ministry for Development advised that the website had been created to help foreign users “jump the barriers of the Spanish legal language when they come to invest in the Spanish property market, and in this way correctly evaluate and interpret the information sent by the Land Registry Offices”. However, beware as in case of discrepancies in the translations, the Spanish version will prevail, so it may be as well to get a second opinion on the translation before signing on the dotted line. The Secretary of State for Housing, Beatriz Corredor assured that, “in this way, foreign citizens can have all the physical, legal and urban information over a property in a way that is more understandable for them and any buyer can approach the Registry before buying a property to ensure that there is no risk in the purchase”.

Home finance >>

cent when the market rate is at three per cent.

Deceptive mortgages I

f you’re looking to finance a home purchase take care to have a good look at the fine print as there are a lot of mortgages out there that are not all that they seem. The interest you are going to be charged seems ver y competitive, in fact cheaper than most of the offers on the market, or it may seem easier than other companies to actually get the loan, but the small print ties you to deals that can mean that you will end up paying more in the long run, between 0.5 and one per cent depending on the company and the offer. Some insist on a minimum charge amount to be made monthly to a credit card, or payment into an investment fund or pension plan, that your wages are paid into their bank and that your household bills are paid by them and some companies insist on insurance policies over and above the legal minimum, a life insurance or a mortgage protection policy. Another trick is to offer an initial low interest rate which after a set period of time is increased and normally to above the market level. All of which can mean that the real cost of your loan could be more expensive than it first appeared.

Look closely at:

Reference index: The index upon which your mortgage rate will be based and how much over that index you will be paying, what and when are the posterior revisions, by how much the figure is rounded up, a rate of 4.01 per cent can be rounded up to 4.5 per cent for example. Check for mor tgage interest rate ‘floors’ which mean that you could still be paying four per

Tied products:

Which other of the bank’s products are you agreeing to? Do you have to have your wages paid into the account or several household bills channelled through them and if so what are the costs and benefits to you?

Additional payments:

Are you expected to make additional payments to investment funds or pension plans?

Insurance: What insurance policies are being requested? Additional Costs: Don’t forget to ask about the additional costs of the mortgage, not just the interest but the bank commissions and administration charges. EU advice

The European Union recommend a minimum level of information that the banks and financial institutions should be supplying. This includes the type of credits available, a full explanation of the different products on offer with fixed and variable interest rates and the implications to the consumer, the basic cost and additional costs to be levied including administration charges, insurances, legal costs etc. The options of paying off the credit, the importance of payment stages and a full explanation of the regular resetting of your mortgage rate and how frequently it will be modified. Whether or not it is possible to pay all or some of the mortgage off and if so under what conditions? If it is necessary to value the property, who will be contracted to carry it out? As always, it is advisable when in doubt, to consult a solicitor who is fully versed in Spanish law and language and that of your home country.

BritishEmbassy Property advice from the British Embassy

Taxes applicable to property purchases in Spain T

he information on this page about the taxes you should pay when purchasing and selling a property in Spain is aimed at British individuals (not companies) who are considering buying in Spain.

The taxes you need to pay will var y depending on whether you are a resident in Spain or a nonresident, where your property is located, the value of the property, whether it is new or a re-sale. The information about each tax and the figures quoted in this document are correct as of June 2011 but they are likely to change so you should seek independent advice from a qualified tax adviser on the current rates and which taxes are applicable to your property. While the FCO hopes that this information is of benefit to our customers, please be aware that it is not intended to be the only guidance purchasers follow when considering making a purchase. In addition, the FCO makes no representation as to the quality or accuracy of the information which is available at the web addresses listed below, nor can the FCO accept any responsibility for the content that is hosted on them. The FCO’s strong recommendation is that prospective purchasers seek independent legal and financial advice at all stages of their purchase when transacting in Spain. The FCO also strongly advises purchasers to appoint a professional tax adviser in Spain to handle all your tax payments, ensuring that they are paid to the

Agencia Tributaria on time and that you are not liable for any fines for late/incorrect payments.

General information Britain has a double taxation agreement with Spain, to ensure people do not pay tax on the same income in both countries. However, taxation is a complex issue, and it is advisable to seek the advice of an accountant or tax adviser with comprehensive and up to date knowledge of both the UK and Spanish tax rules.

Tax identification number (Número de Identificación Fiscal) In Spain, all taxpayers are assigned a Tax Identification Number (NIF), which must appear on all tax returns and in all communications with the Agencia Tributaria (Spain’s Tax Agency). In general, for people with Spanish nationality, the NIF is the number of their National Identity card (Documento Nacional de Identidad - DNI) and, in the case of foreign nationals, the NIF is the same as the Foreign National’s Identification Number (NIE). However, those foreign citizens who do not have a NIE should request a NIF to be assigned to them by the local Agencia Tributaria office.

Residency If you spend more than 183 days in Spain during the tax year (calendar year) you will become a Spanish tax resident liable for Spanish income tax (IRPF). These days do not have to be consecutive.

Taxes to be paid by the purchaser on acquisition of the property If you buy a new property you will pay the Impuesto sobre el Valor Añadido (IVA – equivalent of UK VAT) and the Impuesto de Actos Jurídicos Documentados (IAJD). If you buy a re-sale property you will pay the Impuesto de Transmisiones Patrimoniales (ITP). If you acquire the property through inheritance or it is donated to you, you will pay the Impuesto sobre Sucesiones y Donaciones (ISD). You can find further information about property taxes in our Property Taxes document.

Additional costs You should also be aware that in addition to taxes, there are a range of other costs when purchasing a property in Spain including: Notary fees Legal fees Estate agent’s fees Optional fees for a financial adviser (gestor/asesor) in Spain to manage your tax returns Fees for a chartered surveyor/ quantity surveyor

A Night with Will Young 27

“The experience of having played at Wembley 12 months ago can only be good and they can use that to their advantage. It’s a daunting place and you never know how a team like Wigan will cope with the pressure.” “There’s a lot of history weighing on the shoulders of all the Wigan players and this is going to be a big day for them, especially their young guns They’ll know all about the club’s history in the competition and how much expectation comes with that.” Kick-off 2.30pm, presented by Clare Balding.

ilms and dramas such as The Great Escape and Colditz have thrilled viewers over the years with their iconic real-life stories of brave prisoners of war plotting and executing their escapes.

Former Leeds favourite Adrian Morley is tipping his old club to taste Wembley glory by defeating Wigan Warriors and has a single piece of advice to Rhinos fans, “Do you really want to miss a Leeds Wembley win?” Morley added, “It’s going to be a cracking match. Leeds usually save their best performances for matches against Wigan and the Warriors know they’re going to be in a game. The Rhinos won’t be short of motivation either because they know they didn’t do themselves justice last year. I know a lot of their players and I know they’re still hurting.”

no early morning starts. A lot of those who work in so-called services seem to have a civil servant mentality. The tourist information offices are a case in point. If you arrive on a Saturday afternoon it is Monday morning before you can get access to their services more if you arrive over a weekend where there is fiestas. Phone call information isn’t the same, you have no access to maps etc unless you happen to holiday with a laptop and printer and who does that these days with the luggage restrictions? Of course you could always go to the local libraries - but then they’re closed too at weekends.

Fiesta shutdown Dear Editor

I

’m visiting this island for the summer with my family and am amazed at the high level of the local facilities and also at the underuse of them. Most of the towns along the coast have some lovely pool complexes, some even have well equipped gymnasiums, but the timetables seem to be up the spout. Anyone who is working would be hard put to get any use out of them unless they are not on the normal split shift system or they fancy dragging themselves out at 8pm in the evening to get some exercise. Few of them in the north open for more than three or four hours on Saturday, most of them don’t open at all on Sundays and

Maybe it’s about time that the people who work here and run things sat back and decided who they are running things for? It doesn’t seem to be either for the workers or for the tourists. Regards T Melksham

Adeje ne of the best things about going to foreign countries is trying out the food and drink as far Ed’s note: You may be interested as I’m concerned. Which is why it’s disappointing to find in our review of the five best tapas so few restaurants offering restaurants in September’s The Spanish food, especially Magazine. tapas, a particular favourite of mine. There seems to be a prolifery of restaurants from all over the globe but ver y few offering the native goodies at least in the tourist areas. If you want Spanish food you have

Aries (March 21 to April 20)

Mercury is retrograde until the 27th. It’s no bad thing, but be prepared for things to move slower than you’d like. Although you may feel it’s an uphill struggle towards the end of August you still know where you’re headed. Financial opportunities appear for you to boost your income.



Taurus (April 21 to May 20)

Cash could be a problem and you may have to juggle finances. More promising conditions are on the way when you could be rewarded for earlier efforts. Property investment and making sure everything is insured are priorities, and towards the end of August there could even be a windfall.



Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Mercury’s movements could have meant refocusing and some minor frustrations. Group thinking and shared responsibility might appeal to you. Do check small print, you may need to make a claim on a guarantee. Better news is coming as delayed funds could start to head your way.



Cancer (June 21 to July 21)

It’s all systems go, and in every way. You may have seen more cash going out than coming in but that situation is likely to change for the better. A close friend or partner could also receive some encouraging news. You’re tired of problems, although solutions can be found.



Leo (July 22 to August 21)

Be extremely careful with any agreements made now and ensure all is as it should be, as there could be consequences for several years. Pay your debts and decide where to put your savings. A financial partnership with a Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn may be significant.

in the most case to go up in the hills which means at least one member of the group can’t have a few wines with his or her meal and you need a hire car, or a taxi of course. Come on restaurant owners some of us are a little bit more adventurous than fish and chips or eggs and bacon.

Wilmslow

Virgo (August 22 to September 21)

You may have had second thoughts about an agreement you’ve wanted for some time because it could upset others around you. You may change your mind back and forth several times but things will become clearer and you will feel more comfortable about making an investment.

Libra (September 22 to October 22)

Invest in improvements to your diet and exercise routine. You may turn a significant financial corner, and this will create jobs to be done over the next few months. You might want to improve your social connections, so decide which groups or associations you want to join.

You could be tempted to be extravagant, so why not consider investing in art, or artistic endeavours? There is an excellent opportunity to review accounting methods and practices to ensure that all is in order. Friends and acquaintances could set you thinking about new business ideas.



Sagittarius (November 22 to December 20)

The accent is on travel and what turns you on, which could be money. You could be far more inclined to study the small print and read financial pages than usual, and buying and selling should work out well. Take some time to consider savings plans too.



Capricorn (December 21 to January 19)

Financial juggling has been the name of the game recently. But there’s a celebration in the offing connected to a close business partner, and you’ll have to make an effort to be there. You could be going through an emotionally trying time, especially if property is involved.



Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

You’ll pick up some great bargains and benefit from a financial partnership, although you’ll also be wondering whether or not you’ve done the right thing. This may be a great time to go to an auction, you never know what or who you might find there.



Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

You might have a feeling that in financial terms, you are slipping backwards and that others have far more claim to resources than you do. This is not an easy time for you but there is light at the end of the tunnel, so hang in there!

About orchid care and supplies By: Daniel Roshard

O

rchids are special flowers, they do not cooperate with every gardener and home owner, some can have flowers on their orchids all year round, with rich and healthy orchids that are on display all the time, and some others have their orchids bloom for a short while and then slowly deteriorate. Some orchid flowers come from tropical climates, warm countries and humid areas but they grow in any climate and in any condition.

Water damage

Buying a Caravan

Why you should clear up quickly

By Alec Townsend

By Rudy

W

ater damage can have a lot of causes. Among them are leaky or burst pipes, leaky roofs, heavy storms or frozen pipes due to winter snow, and broken sub pumps. Now, if you want to know whether your insurance company will shoulder the expenses for damage repair, the answer is yes and no. It just depends on the type of insurance you have.

The most important thing that the person should be familiar with are the three types of species that are generally being grown. Each of these have different needs so the person needs to understand how these are able to bloom and survive given the environment.

The first type of orchid is called an epiphyte. This plant should be on a high shelf or stand so that it can live and grow near to its natural habitat since this species grows on and over trees. The second type of orchid is called a lithophyte. These species prefer to be placed near the base of trees. It will also be a good idea to add some moss to help it grow.

The third type of orchid is the terrestrial orchid. Among the three, these will grow just like other kinds of plants because they have to be planted into the ground. Those who want to grow either lithophytes or terrestrials will need orchid pots to prevent water retention as these species drown where there is too much around. It will also be a good idea to get the right soil mixture and use some fertilizers.

Orchids are tropical plants. This means the warmth in the day has to be balanced with cool temperatures in the evening. You can create a small greenhouse so these can grow in a controlled environment. Ideally, this should be from 55 to 65 degrees keeping the soil of the lithophytes and the terrestrial orchids moist.

The last tip to remember when taking care of orchids is that these should be pruned regularly. Dead parts must be removed to give shape to the plant. It is preferable to use a pair of sharp shears and cut it back to an inch so that something new will grow in its next blooming season. Orchids like pets need tender and loving care to make them grow. Those who want to try this hobby should have time to check on these plants every so often. There are books and other sources of information available that will serve as a guide to make the flowers bloom. Article Source: http://www.diyarticlelibrary.com

Caravans can provide you with many years of enjoyment

I

f you’re thinking about purchasing a caravan but not sure which type would best suit your needs here is some basic information that may assist you in your final decision. First we will look at touring caravans. The main distinctions in touring caravan design are a motor-home which provides you with all inclusive transportation and short-term living quar ters and a stand-alone caravan which is towed. A motor-home has a tendency to be far more costly than a stand-alone caravan, but the most significant benefit is having no need for a second motor vehicle. One of the most crucial steps in deciding upon a tourer is to take into account your own particular likes and dislikes, your budget and who is likely to use it? Take into

consideration the dimensions, if you happen to be travelling with family members or close friends. Start looking at the different types of sites you would prefer to explore. If you’re planning to be travelling over difficult terrain, you will require a more robust caravan. If you are most likely going to small out of the way spots, in that case a more compact caravan would certainly be less complicated to manoeuvre. In the event that you choose to tow the caravan, make certain that your car can take the added weight load. You might also need to be sure that it will fit on to your drive. Bear in mind the ‘liveability’ of your caravan or motor-home. Take a look at each and every area of it. Is there sufficient storage space? Can you comfortably use the bedroom(s)? What about the

bathroom? Is the cooking and dining area sufficient to provide for your family group? Investing in a caravan, regardless of whether it is a tourer or static one, is a substantial financial commitment and most likely the second largest expenditure you are going to make after your residential home. If you can afford it and you’re new to caravanning, it’s always wise to buy brand new and from a reputable dealer or site. Ask others who have used the dealership their opinions. However, assuming you are still intent on caravanning you will discover that it can provide you with many years of enjoyment and will give you more cost effective vacations in the long term. *Article Source: www.diyarticlelibrary.com

hen you have mold damage, generally, the insurance company does not pay because they only cover flood water damage. Mold damage, which is considered secondary damage, is almost intrinsically a part of water damage. Most insurance companies do not shoulder the expenses for secondary damage, because they are a consequence of negligence or lack of proper maintenance and care.

S

o, if you have damage to your water system, the first thing to do is to find the source of the leak. If it does not come from the rains, then, it must have come from a leaky or burst pipe.You can check this by turning off the main water valve. If the leak comes from your roof, you have to do your best to make it stop.

How Are Your Savings Taxed In Spain? By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

M

any people who move to Spain rely to a certain extent on their savings to provide an income, or at least to have as back up if needed. It is therefore important to understand how various savings and investments are taxed in Spain so that you can factor in how much you will lose in tax. Understanding how the system works can help you set up your financial planning in Spain to pay as little tax as possible. Spanish tax residents are liable to tax on their worldwide income and gains, including those made in offshore centres. In Spain income is split into two categories for tax purposes, general income and savings income.

The savings income category covers: • Interest income • Dividend income • Capital gains on the sale or transfer of assets (both shares etc and property) • Income derived from life assurance contracts • Income from purchased annuities Income from savings and investments are combined and taxed together each year at fixed rates of 19 per cent for income under €6,000 and 21 per cent for anything in excess of this. Pension income, as well as any income from rental property, are taxed as general income and so at the scale rates of tax which range from 24 per cent to 45 per cent (47 per cent in Andalucia and 49 per cent in Cataluña). Investment losses in a particular year can be set off against other savings income (but not against general income and

for the year, but it can be as low as €978 if solely set against investment income. In the next issue of Island Connections I will look at how UK investments and offshore accounts are taxed in Spain. It is important for any expatriate living here to understand how

You need to structure your savings to be as tax efficient as possible different types of savings and investments are taxed so you can structure your savings to be as tax efficient as possible. 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.

vice versa), but capital losses can only be offset against other capital gains and not against other savings income, with unrelieved losses carried forward for up to four years. The general tax free allowance, the Minimo Personal y Familiar, is available to everyone. Set against general income first, any balance can be set

against savings income if not fully utilised against general income. The basic allowance is currently €5,151 per person, or €8,551 for joint returns, increasing to €6,069 for those aged 65 and over and €6,273 for those over 75. Higher allowances are available for people with an incapacity or who have

dependants. Unfortunately the allowance is not quite as generous as first appears, since it is not a deduction against taxable income but a credit given against the total tax payable. To cut a long story short, while on paper your basic allowance is €5,151, only a maximum of €1,236 can be offset against your tax liability

HouseCalls Dear Dr. De La Flor

Dr. De La Flor

m_delaflor@hotmail.com

Dear Dr. De La Flor

I’ve scheduled a hysterectomy, but am not clear on exactly what takes place during the procedure. What do I need to know? Jana

Dear Jana, First of all, congratulations for asking. One of the best ways to prepare for any surgical procedure is to have some basic knowledge about it. An abdominal hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes your uterus through an incision in your lower abdomen. Your uterus (or womb) is where a baby grows if you’re pregnant. A hysterectomy can b e p e r f o r m e d t hr ough an incision in the vagina (vaginal hysterectomy) or by a laparoscopic approach, which uses laparoscopic instruments passed through small abdominal incisions. Abdominal hysterectomy may be recommended over other surgical approaches if you have a large uterus or if your doctor wants to check other pelvic organs for signs of disease. A partial hysterectomy removes just the uterus, and a total hysterectomy removes the uterus and cer vix. A total hysterectomy can also include removal of the uterus, cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes. I recommend that my patients spend a little bit of time writing their questions before they come to my surger y. In that way the consultation is productive, informative and provides peace of mind. Try doing the same next time with your own doctor. Best wishes

Dear Dr. De La Flor

I’ve been using several over-the-counter medications for my ear but I don’t seem to be getting better and sometimes I feel dizzy. Why is that?

John

Dear John, The scenario you described sounds typical of a problem with the Eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear with the throat. The ear feeling clogged and the clicking during a cold or sinus infection are a result of the Eustachian tube, the ear’s natural drainage tube, getting swollen shut or, more commonly, partly shut. That swelling can create a clicking or popping noise, a feeling of ear fullness, a mild earache or even a sense of disequilibrium (being of f balance, dizzy). The swelling can commonly last a couple of weeks. If the tube stays

completely swollen for more than a couple of days, you could even begin to build up fluid behind the eardrum. In addition to colds, nasal allergies and sinus infections, even stomach acid reflux can cause the Eustachian tube swelling. A middle ear infection from infected fluid behind the eardrum will cause muffled hearing and usually severe pain. This is usually the end result of the Eustachian tube being swollen completely shut for several days. Usually, antibiotics are not needed for the sensation of fullness, clicking and mild pressure. In fact, for just plain Eustachian tube dysfunction (or ETD) without infection or allergies, we do not really have a proven medical treatment that is any better than just ‘waiting it out.’ If there are other signs of a lingering sinus infection or the beginnings of an ear infection, antibiotics may be helpful. Other medications such as prescription nasal sprays can at times help treat Eustachian tube dysfunction

as well, especially if there is a lot of swelling in the nose from the remnants of a cold or allergies. Finally, tr y not to worr y about the popping and clicking when you blow your nose, that is just the Eustachian tube tr ying to open up to get the ear aired out again. These symptoms will go away once the Eustachian tube is working properly. If your ear congestion is not clearing in about 2 weeks, then getting evaluated by your GP or an otolaryngologist may be helpful. Hope you get well soon.

Dear Dr. De La Flor

Can I get dehydrated if I exercise regularly in the heat and don’t drink a sports electrolyte drink? Gill

Dear Gill I n e v i t a b l y, a s t h e temperature increases, so do the constant reminders to

Pedro Alegre Alonso Pilates trainer ä Physiotherapist ä

pedroalegrealonso@hotmail.com

replace electrolytes after exercising in the heat. For most people, all you really need to do is to eat a few salted nuts. The only mineral that you need to take during prolonged exercise is sodium. And even this is only true if you exercise regularly at a fairly decent intensity for more than an hour, particularly in hot weather. If this is true, you probably need extra salt. I run an average of 5-10 km daily and honestly, I never need any fancy sports drinks, electrolyte gels or tablets…not that there’s anything wr ong with them if you enjoy them, but performance wise, for most of us it is not going to make any difference. Tr uthfully, you do not need extra potassium, magnesium or calcium during exercise. Athletes do lose minerals through increased sweating, but compared to blood loss, sweat is very diluted when it comes to minerals, so they can get all the minerals they need from food before or after a workout. I hope you enjoy your exercise time as much as I do!

inner peace By Dr. De La Flor

O

ne of the most common problems I observe in my daily practice is people holding grudges, being unable to move on from past experiences.

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man’s sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly, the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.” Martin L. King Jr.

A

t some point, in different ways and degrees, we’ve all been hurt …Sometimes by “loved ones”, or by “friends” … or even worse some of us by the ones who “preach in the name of Love” ...We ALL need, deserve and long for that joyous inner peace that makes us cherish everything and everybody around us, to feel special, and loved, and cared for … because YOU and I, despite our weaknesses and flaws …are precious, unique, special and one of a kind …

RESOLUTION: Most of us are going to take some days off during the summer. Let’s try for the next two weeks to find time to discover ways to transform hate into love, disdain into compassion. It takes time and effort … but the fruits are plentiful.

By the way, feel free to add me as friend on Facebook (Manuel De La Flor). Talk to you in a couple of weeks.

Angela, Adriana, Fernando and the animals need your help

sociación amigos de 4 patas is a new pets’ charity which has just been set up in the north of Tenerife. Their aim is not to raise money for the local refuges, but to be able to provide them with aid with specific programmes, vaccination, castration, building schemes, beds and blankets. They want to raise funds and then act when asked to by the refuges to exact requests for help and apart from the collection box which is located in La Cúpula in Puerto de la Cruz which also acts as a donation point for food and animal care products, new or second hand, they will be seen in and about all the local fiestas they can attend with stalls from which all the profits will go to help an abandoned animal, or organising sporting and cultural events. So you can also help by buying your drinks from them or attending a fun event – hence their leitmotif – helping is fun! They are currently running a photographic competition – more information on their soon to be launched website, www.amigos4patas.es. As the events are sporadic they don’t need people to be available at a regular time or day, unless you want to volunteer for collection box rattling at the shopping centre or dog walking, but they do desperately need volun-

teers to man the bar at local fiestas, arrange fun events to help them raise funds – all ideas welcome, skilled DIY people to work on refuge building projects free, adoptive families and flight godmothers and godfathers who are willing to accompany an animal, especially to Germany or Holland at no cost to themselves. They are happy to help you choose your new member of the family and help you train it to adapt to you, or aid with short term emergency ‘babysitting’. They also offer talks to education centres, therapy with animals.

Can you help? Even if only one day a

month or every two months? Or at any of the local fiestas? Even if you are only here for summer or winter, there’s a place for you in this group. All the current members work full time and whilst they are very dedicated, they need help desperately. There are so many animals that need assistance and just a couple of hours a month could make such a big difference if we can get enough people together to offer help. Contact them on 620270681, via Facebook to offer your aid, or via Island Connections.

Auto’s story

k9

A

uto was around four months old when he came to K9, back in July 2008.

He was found by the TF1 junction at Las Chafiras with a collar and lead attached. You would think he was actually a lost dog but no-one came looking for him. So he has grown up in the kennels, whatever happened to him in that first four months has stuck, as he is very shy with new people, especially with men. He also has a problem with new dogs and will be the first to attack. Over his time at K9 he has been paired up with various kennel mates and seen them go to new homes. He is currently with Roberta, his kennel mate for more than a year now (also looking for a home). He loves to go walking

Auto and Roberta on a walk

and is very good off the lead, Roberta loves to run about but Auto only runs and plays for a little bit and then stays nearby. Auto is a special dog and will need a very loving and caring home, can you help? He will need patience but with time will grow to love you and be a very good companion. It

would be best for him to be in a one dog family although with time and effort he will pair with a female. We are hoping that Auto’s story will touch the heart of someone, who will be willing to give him a chance. If you can help, please contact K9 667 638 468.

panish group Jarabe de Palo are returning to Tenerife on August 27 at 9pm to present their latest album ¿Y ahora qué hacemos? in a concert at the Polideportivo Aregume in Los Silos. This concert, organised by the commission of the fiestas de Nuestra Señora de La Luz, forms part of the group’s world tour which has taken in Spain, Europe and America. The warm up acts will be Tenerife groups Mar´a and Ni un pelo de tonto, and following the performance by Jarabe de Palo, a DJ will be keeping the party going until 4am. Jarabe de Palo is formed by Pau Donés (vocals and guitar), Alex Tenas (drums), Carmen Niño (bass), Jordi Busquets (electric guitar), Riki Frouchtman and Dani Baraldes (guitars). They rose to

fame in 2005 with a song which, a year later, became known internationally: La Flaca. In 1998, the group released their second hit, Depende, followed De vuelta y vuelta (2001), Bonito (2003), Un metro cuadrado 1m² (2004), Adelantando (2007) and Orquesta Reciclando (2009). They have also released various compilation albums, some of which have won the group Grammy and Onda awards. Tickets are on sale in advance at €15 from General Tickets and several local outlets, or on the night at the venue for €20. Jarabe de Palo will be presenting their latest album, which has a much more rocky style than their previous releases. Some of the tracks include guest artists such as Joaquín Sabina, Alejandro Sanz, Antonio Orozco and Carlos Tarque of MClan.

The 26th Edition of the Pinolere Craft Fair takes place between September 2 and 4, with more than 100 craftspeople from Tenerife and another 75 from the other Canary Islands, Spain and abroad taking part. As well as lots of stalls, there will be food, workshops, folklore, children’s activities and much more. There will be a free bus service from the centre of La Orotava to the fair at the Parque Etnográfico Pinolere.

This movie, the latest by director Larry Charles, will star Ben Kingsley (Gandhi) and Anna Faris (Scary Movie) with British actor, comedian and writer Sacha Noam Cohen heading the cast. Finchley Dreams is based on the novel Zabibah and the King, which narrates the story of a dictator who is capable of giving his life to the cause of preventing the arrival of democracy in his country. Sacha’s most famous role to date was in 2006 when he played the role of Borat, a fictitious TV reporter from Kazakhstan who travelled to the United States to make a satirical documentary. The majority of the movie will be filmed in the United States, Seville and Fuerteventura where 150 people have been sought as extras in recent castings to find

a Librea de Tegueste, a 17th century tradition, returns to the Plaza de San Marcos on September 9. This classic reconstruction runs alongside the fiestas of Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios and is a representation of a fiesta day in Tegueste in the year 1850, not only featuring an ample display of the customs and traditions of that time, but also scenes based on documents found in the town’s Municipal Archives. La Librea was the name of a military defence force led by one captain, obsessed with defending Tegueste, Tejina, Punta Hidalgo and Valle Guerra against sea attacks by pirates. They would also fire their guns as a mark of respect for their patron’s statue, and that tradition continued even after the forces left the town, with volunteers using mock weapons. The reconstruction consists of a battle between La Librea and the three ships of Tegueste, in the Plaza de San Marcos, with lots of gunfire, fantastic costumes, symbolism, and of course, lots of fun. The traditional recreation of La Librea, the ‘Meeting of the Ship and the Castle’, is an evening event which is followed by a fantastic fireworks display.

Katy column

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all well. This week Mike Byatt emailed me and asked, “Why do women always go to the loo in pairs, and why do they take so long?”

M

ost men have asked this question at one time or another for many years, so I’ll be your Agony Aunt for this week Mike, and take the mystery out of the phenomenon. It’s mostly the fault of our mothers. From being young enough to visit the loo on our own, we’ve been plied with advice, to be ignored at our peril. As soon as we enter, we look for shoes poking out from beneath the doors. When we find one that looks empty, we enter. Then our mother’s voice enters our subconscious. “Make sure the door locks”. Well it usually doesn’t so we hear her next bit of advice, “Hang your bag on the hook, not on the floor, firstly because of the germs, and secondly because it’s easily stolen”. “Yes Mum” we think, but of course there’s no hook!!! So we follow the advice from years ago, and hang it round our necks.

A

s we struggle with tights, trousers etc, we remember her instructions, “never to sit down on a public toilet seat”, so we inelegantly and athletically straddle the seat, wishing we could shut her voice out of our head. It’s then that we discover there’s a marked lack of loo paper, and we curse as we remember rule number five of Mum’s Toilet Training Manual,” always cover the seat with toilet paper”. If we’d done her rules in the correct order, we’d have known there wasn’t any paper. And because there’s no lock, someone else tries the door, because they didn’t know the rule of “look under the door for shoes”, and they knock us sideways into the cubicle door, thus spilling the contents of our handbag all over. (It was open because we were looking for tissues.) When we finally get everything picked up safely, our clothes back in the right order, taking special note if we’re wearing a dress, that the hem at the back isn’t tucked by mistake into the leg of our knickers, we thankfully exit the cubicle.

W

e wash our hands, but of course the hot air drier isn’t working, and we wait while our friend or friends go through the same routine. So you see Mike, we need a friend to hold the broken door closed, pass through tissues when and if needed (and they usually are due to the lack of anyone checking),

hold our handbag if there’s no hook, and check that our knickers aren’t on show when we come out. That’s why we take so long. And if any of you gentlemen have any other questions regarding the mysteries of the fairer sex, I’ll gladly answer them for you.

O

n the same subject, when I was a little girl in Sunderland, I thought my Aunty Amy had the best job in the world. She lived in what was known as The Fishermen’s Cottages in Whitburn. Her husband was a fisherman, and the wages were seasonal and minimal, but Aunty Amy got herself a job to help eke out the family income. She applied to the council and was successful in obtaining the position of Toilet Attendant in the public loo at Seaburn. There were eight cubicles, each with a container for the post war ‘public enemy number one toilet paper’ - Izal. I don’t know whether any of you remember the dreaded Izal, but it was sharp and exceedingly scratchy, and was only one step up from the Sunderland Echo cut up into squares and hanging on a nail in the wall.

A

unty Amy was proud of her toilets and washed both floors and porcelain down religiously, keeping them spotless. She then retired to her own little cubicle, complete with curtained glass door, table and two chairs, gas ring, kettle, a jar of condensed milk and a caddy of tea next to the biscuit barrel. My little brother and I would duly visit nearly every day. We couldn’t go to school for weeks on end as we had no shoes, and our clothes were normally both ragged and very dirty and we were terribly afraid of both the head master, and more especially of the Nit Nurse.

W

e would be regaled with tea and biscuits, and were even given a penny each, (no doubt from the slots on the doors) and could even spend a penny for free as Aunty Amy had a special key. Friends of hers would pop in for a cuppa many times during the day, and she held that job for over ten years until the council decided attendants were no longer needed. As kids we thought it must be the best job in the world. And as little raggedy kids we found the tea and biccies, as well as the pennies, a lifesaver. If you have any special memories, then send me an email on katykennedy@telefonica.net or ring me on 616 110 930. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially each other

Clinica Implantologia

Assess your gum disease risk How old are you?

Your chances of developing periodontal disease increase considerably as you get older. Studies indicate that older people have the highest rates of periodontal disease and need to do more to maintain good oral health.

Are you female or male?

Studies suggest there are genetic differences between men and women that affect the risk of developing gum disease. While women tend to take better care of their oral health than men do, women’s oral health is not markedly better than men’s. This is because hormonal fluctuations throughout a woman’s life can affect many tissues, including gum tissue.

Do your gums ever bleed?

Bleeding gums can be one of the signs of gum disease. Think of gum tissue as the skin

on your hand. If your hands bled every time you washed them, you would know something was wrong. However if you are a smoker, your gums may not bleed.

Are your teeth loose?

Periodontal disease is a serious inflammatory disease that is caused by a bacterial infection, and leads to destruction of the attachment fibres and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth. When neglected, teeth can become loose and fall out.

Have your gums receded, or do your teeth look longer?

One of the warning signs of gum disease includes gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, causing the teeth to look longer than before.

Do you smoke or use tobacco products?

Studies have shown that tobacco use may be one of the most significant risk factors in the development and progression of periodontal disease. Smokers are much more likely than non-smokers to have calculus form on their teeth, have deeper pockets between the teeth and gums, and lose more of the bone and tissue that support the teeth.

Have you seen a dentist in the last two years?

Daily brushing and flossing will help keep calculus formation to a minimum, but it won’t completely prevent it. A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year is necessary to remove calculus from places your toothbrush and floss may have missed.

How often do you floss?

Studies demonstrate that including flossing as part of your oral care routine can actually

help reduce the amount of gum disease-causing bacteria found in the mouth, therefore contributing to healthy teeth and gums.

Do you currently have any of the following health conditions?

Heart disease, osteoporosis, osteopenia, high stress, or diabetes. Ongoing research suggests that periodontal disease may be linked to these conditions. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease can travel into the blood stream and pose a threat to other parts of the body. Healthy gums may lead to a healthier body.

Have you ever been told that you have gum problems, gum infection or gum inflammation?

Gum disease can begin and progress without obvious symptoms, which is a situation similar to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. An examination of your gums and jaw bones is the only accurate way to determine if you have gum disease. This includes measuring the depth of the gum pockets and using x-rays to determine the bone level. The most common form of gum disease is gingivitis. It is distinguished from the more severe type, periodontitis or pyorrhea, by the depth of gum pockets and bone loss. Approximately one-half of gum disease is related to genetics. Not only should you be concerned about gum disease but your parents and siblings should also have an examination for gum disease by a periodontist. As a professional periodontist, Dr. Chanut will help you to make the best choice.

The more recent your loss of a tooth due to gum disease, the greater the risk of losing more teeth from the disease. Wisdom teeth, teeth extracted for orthodontic therapy or because of fracture or trauma may not contribute to increased risk for periodontal disease.

Rosita

One of the World’s Best Beers T

his artisan brewed beer from Tarragona was listed in the beer drinkers’ bible, World’s Best Beers, written and compiled by British leading drinks journalist, Ben McFarland, as Spain’s best beer.

History or legend It is said that the eldest son of a well to do family in Tarragona ran a small bleach factor y in the Calle Hospital, ‘Gardenia soaps and bleach’. The young count fell madly in love with a young seamstress called Núria. Despite their social differences the couple married, promising eternal love. His family didn’t approve of the match and they made things difficult for the young couple. So much so that when times became tough, they ‘helped’ the soap into bankruptcy. Núria went back to sewing and Jaume looked around desperately for a way to earn his living. However, all was not bad news as on an April day a lovely baby girl was born, they called her Rosita. The day after the baptism, a relative came to visit them, Doménech Güansé Salesas a well known Tarraconense literati. It was he who encouraged them to go to Cuba and start afresh. Little is known of their time there, but when they returned they came back with the recipe for a beer which they called Rosita.

Varieties

Rosita original

According to World’s Best Beer, Rosita is a Pale Ale from a small micro in the Mediterranean coastal town of Tarragona in southern Catalonia. A top fermented bottleconditioned hazy pale ale with a superb soft sparkle and citrus hop bitterness. The production process is completely

artisan and at no moment are chemicals added to conserve the beer or to corrupt its flavour and scent.

Rosita d’ivori Very light lager with fruity overtones. Clear and light in colour with a creamy foam. Very refreshing.

Rosita negra Brown ale with a strong hazelnut colour and creamy foam. The hazelnuts of Alcover mean that it combines excellently with chocolate desserts.

Rosita picant A spicy beer, amber in colour with orange tints and white, creamy ivor y coloured foam. It has an exotic scent of coriander and ginger and a full flavour of mature fruit and toasted malt.

Rosita Blue A honey coloured beer of a fine gasification, white creamy foam with ivory tones. Fruity and persistent on the nose, sweet with citric touches of Kafir lime on the palate.

Rosita Voll A winter beer with a strong golden colour and reflections of sugar caramel. Lasting ivory coloured foam, with a scent of toasted almonds and coffee. Sweet on the first taste with an enveloping flavour due to its good combination of malts.

Where can you find Rosita? It’s a special beer found at quality bars and restaurants, where you can enjoy good company or dedicate a little time to yourself. If you want to get in touch with your nearest distributor send an email to beu@rosita.cat and the company will put you in touch with them.

Disa design

Slowly but surely the 204 petrol stations belonging to the Canarian company Disa are receiving a makeover.

T

he stations which were wearing the colours of Cepsa and Shell are being remodelled and replaced with the bright yellow, blue and white colours and the green and blue bird. Staff now wear white shirts and Canarian blue trousers and jackets if it’s cold. Twenty stations were remodelled last year, no figures are yet available as to the number that have been changed so far. The operation is, “a reaffirmation (of ourselves) as a Canarian business group and a vehicle to maintain our leadership in this market,” explained the managing director, Raimundo Baroja, at the start of the campaign.

Nissan Qashqai S

ince its European launch in March 2007, the Qashqai has exceeded all sales expectations, and demand remains high. Following several updates it’s now better than ever, for both drivers and the environment. Representing over 40 per cent of Qashqai sales, the 1.6-litre petrol version now benefits from increased output of 117PS and 158Nm of torque (up from 115PS and 156Nm). This frugal four-cylinder is now available with a Stop/Start System for the first time, improving fuel economy by up to three per cent and emissions on the Qashqai from 144 g/km to 139 g/km, and the Qashqai+2 (7-seater version) from 154 g/km to just 149 g/km. In the diesel line-up every model

now sports diesel particulate filter technology with the addition of DPF to the 1.5-litre dCi engine. But these green improvements haven’t compromised power. The 1.5 dCi’s output has increased from 106PS to 110PS. What’s more, all engines in the Qashqai and Qashqai+2 ranges are now compliant with EURO V emissions regulations. The ever-popular Tekna version is now even more tempting with the luxurious standard equipment list of Nissan Connect (an advanced combined satellite navigation and audio system), a colour reversing camera, a panoramic glass roof, privacy glass, 18-inch alloy wheels trimmed in black and silver, and more. There is a new Chrome Pack option which includes chrome door handles, fog lamp surrounds and side strips. Inside, the pack also

includes door and tailgate entry guards and carpet mats. Built in Britain and better than ever – the Qashqai has reinforced its position as a stylish crossover which combines the dynamic driving characteristics of a sporty hatchback with the robust, solid virtues of a compact SUV. Qashqai and Qashqai+2 both had a complete makeover at the front to give them an air of premium sophistication, presence and quality. At the rear, amongst subtle changes to the lights, aerodynamic features were added and the brake and tail lights now use 12 LEDs for maximum clarity. Two new exterior colours were added: Magnetic Red and Mineral Grey, and two new five-spoke alloy wheel designs introduced – 16- and 17-inch, adding to the Qashqai’s

understated presence. Inside, there is added clarity on the main dials while low level lighting around the front footwells has been introduced. The Qashqai now has improved vibration, harshness and soundproofing, and occupants will also notice a reduction in wind noise. One of the most significant changes to the Qashqai range is the addition of a new Pure Drive variant. This special Qashqai produces only 129g/km of CO2. This is achieved with weight reduction, aerodynamic features, low rolling resistance tyres and the lengthening of the final drive ratio. On June 8 2011 it was announced that the next version of the Nissan Qashqai would be designed, engineered and built by workers in Britain. On June 28, staff at Nissan’s Sunderland Plant celebrated the production of their one millionth Nissan Qashqai. There are four variants of Qashqai, priced from €19,000. You can book your test drive, free, online at http://www.nissan.es/#vehicles/ crossovers/qashqai/test-it.

They announced that they have increased the number of employees by 45 per cent despite the crisis and now employ directly 2,200 people, 1,400 in the Canaries. The company have also received the ok from the Canarian Government to build a bio fuel plant with the capacity to service the whole of the archipelago. BP

Boxing

Boxers’ nicknames T

Soccer ::

By George Reed

wo of Britain’s most successful boxers nicked their nicknames from boxing greats of the 80s.

In Ricky Hatton’s case, he took the ‘Hitman’ from the dynamic puncher throughout the 80s, the five weight former world champion, Thomas Hearns. While the current W.B.C. world champion Carl Froch uses the nickname of the former light heavyweight and heavyweight world champion Ezzard ‘The Cincinnati Cobra’ Charles and Don Curry ‘The Lone Star Cobra’ who was world welterweight and light middleweight champion in the mid 80s. However Hatton and Froch weren’t the first to take the nicknames of former great fighters, for the great Ray Leonard and later Shane Mosley aimed high when they took the nickname used by the greatest fighter who ever lived ‘Sugar’ Ray Robinson. As it turned out they have all donned their labels without being accused of sacrilege! Generally a professional boxer’s nickname is chosen to suggest something ferocious, yet in the early days of prize fighting when bouts were really bloodthirsty, less frightening names were used than in later years. In 1892 James J. Corbett KOd the great John L. Sullivan to win the heavyweight crown. He had studied fighting techniques and brought science to the heavyweight ranks. Tall, handsome and a neat dresser, Corbett became known as ‘Gentleman Jim’. A few years later, in 1908, the first black man to win the heavyweight title called himself ‘L’il Arthur’ – Arthur being the middle name of Jack Johnson, who used the nickname as a way of commenting playfully on his powerful physique and savagery in the ring. The white man’s nightmare, he mocked his white opponents and humiliated them with his fists. In recent times, for the most part, tougher sounding names were used. Jack Dempsey was ‘The Manassa Mauler’, Joe Louis ‘The Brown Bomber’, Jake La Motta ‘The Bronx Bull’, Rocky Marciano, ‘The Brockton Blockbuster’, Roberto Duran, ‘Hands of Stone’, Aaron ‘The Hawk’ Pryor, John ‘The Beast’ Mugabi, Gene ‘Mad Dog’ Hatcher, ‘Terrible’ Tim Witherspoon, ‘Bonecrusher’ Smith, Nigel Benn ‘The Dark Destroyer’, Erik ‘The Terrible’ Morales and Hector ‘Macho’ Comacho. Some fighters even used their former occupation as a nickname, hence: Nick ‘The Fighting Bartender’ De Long, Carmen Basilio ‘The Upstate Onion Farmer, Tony ‘The Punching Postman’ Thornton (who was still working his post round during his boxing career), Terry Marsh ‘The Fighting Fireman (who also worked during his career) and Fred Apostoli, ‘The Boxing Bellhop’. Then of course there’s the amazing Bernard Hopkins, ‘The Executioner’ who still does his executions in the ring, with his skilful performances in boxing techniques at the age of 46. Some three months ago, he took the WBC world light heavyweight title belt from the number one fighter in the division, Jean Pascal from Canada, and made history as the oldest man ever to win a world title – George Foreman was 45 when he beat Michael Moorer for the title. It was a remarkable performance by Hopkins to go into a world champion’s home town and toy with him. He even struck a major psychological blow by dropping to the canvas to do a set of push ups before the start of the 7th round, which is enough to reduce any opponent to despair. Pascal at 28 and in his prime, is 18 years younger than ‘The Executioner’, but throughout the fight, Hopkins looked the youngest of the two, as he dictated the fight and was always fighting like a winner. At his age, Hopkins is a marvel, who in my book earned his place as a modern day great years ago. In face I’m sure he would have been classed as a ‘great’ in any era, whatever his critics may say.

As the summer heats up Soccer Experience continues with their fun 7 a-side weekly evening league games for adults and kids in Southern Tenerife and now the local and overseas teams are starting to look forward to the slow motion winter sunshine Soccer Experience International Masters which has been confirmed for 11th – 13th November 2011. The unique element of this tournament is that the regular slow motion footballer gets a rare chance to play against and even beat some ex top professional players who have played in the World Cup, Premier League, Scottish Premier League and La Liga and many other top European leagues. Amazingly last year all three trophies were won by nonprofessional teams and also were won by three overseas visiting teams that came to Tenerife just for the weekend to play in the Tournament. This year a few local Soccer Experience Tenerife teams will be looking to win the titles. If you are a player, team, volunteer or would even like to sponsor the All Star ex pro team please get in touch with the people in Soccer Experience to discuss options further.

Thrill in debut win CD Tenerife 3 UD Vecindario 0

T

he new look Tenerife team thrilled the crowd in the scorching Heliodoro Stadium as the blanquiazules won their first game of the season 3-0. The only survivor from last year’s starting eleven was goalkeeper Sergio Aragoneses with no more than ten players making their league debuts, but the main star of the show

was Marcos Rodríguez. The first half saw a determined well organised Vecindario team defend well against the home side’s attacks. This was all set to change in a blistering start to the second half as after only two minutes Victor Bravo showed his skill by scoring a well taken goal, drilling the ball underneath the helpless Vecindario

keeper. Just five minutes later Bravo beat two players to lay back a perfect pass to Perona to make it 2-0. The triangular formation of Ferrán Tacón, Víctor Bravo and Jorge Perona was making the difference in attack, this side promises so much. Nico replaced the excellent Victor Bravo on the hour mark and the small winger excited the crowd with some penetrating forays into the area. And it was Nico who scored the third and killer goal on 81 minutes. Perona crossing from the right to find Nico who finished in style as he ran into the box.

11 up for Pestano

Tenerife discus thrower Mario Pestano notched up his eleventh successive Spanish title at the national championships in Malaga earlier this month and lifted himself into the top places in the world rankings for 2011 in the process. The Canarian gave himself the best possible boost ahead of the World Championships with a throw of 67.97 metres, the fourth best in Europe and fifth best in the world this year, putting him above household names such as Lithuania’s Virgilijus Alekna and Estonia’s Gerd Kanter. Pestano will be hoping to break his duck in recent years at major international championships although he will have his work cut out in Daegu (South Korea) to get close to hot favourite Zoltan Kövago from Hungary.

Puerto de la Cruz

Police and Fire Games

Puerto de la Cruz is set for a major tourism boost next year from an unlikely source. The northern town has been chosen to host the next European Police and Fire Games and the designation could well result in up to 20,000 additional visitors in early July 2012, guaranteeing almost 100 per cent occupancy of local hotels. Although many of the 60 disciplines comprising the Games - the largest number ever - will be staged in Santa Cruz and La Laguna, the bulk of the approximately 8,000 competitors and the persons accompanying them will stay in hotels and apartments in Puerto de la Cruz according to the local organisers, who intend to advertise the event at the forthcoming World Police and Fire Games in New York. Delighted mayor Marcos Brito says the event will prove, “a massive draw” for the town and Tenerife generally. Island tourism councillor Carlos Alonso described it as a major organisational challenge for all involved and a welcome boost for the island’s economy.

Court case

Amaral dispute

The dispute between former Tenerife manager David Amaral and the club looks certain to end up in the courts following a failed attempt at a mediated settlement. Despite a contract clause guaranteeing he would be in charge for this season, Amaral was dismissed following the side’s relegation to Division 2B earlier in the summer and has refused to accept anything less than his full wages by way of pay-off. Tenerife offered half of the € 80,000 owed but Amaral refused the offer at a conciliation meeting. “I am the only one who is being treated this way. Others, both players and staff, have been paid in full to leave but not me,” complained the manager after the failed attempt. Pending a definitive outcome to the case, Tenerife will now have to deposit the full amount with the Spanish FA.

S

pain’s top cycle race could be set for a return to Tenerife next year after more than twenty years.

The head of the Vuelta Ciclista, Javier Guillén, met with Canarian president Paulino Rivero during the summer to discuss the possibility of holding up to four stages of the prestigious race in the islands, two in Tenerife and two in Gran Canaria. The organisers are said to be “particularly keen” on a summit finish on Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak, for the gruelling race, one of the majors in the international calendar along with the Italian Giro and the Tour de France. “Teide rivals anything found in other international races. The Vuelta needs this mountain,” said Guillén after the Rivero meeting. If a deal is struck, it will see the Vuelta visit the Canaries for the first time since 1988. Insiders say 2012 might prove a little tight in terms of the logistical arrangements but the Canaries stages could be included in 2013.

Pedro’s new contract

B

asketball player Levi Rost’s to-ing and fro-ing between Tenerife and mainland Spain continues.

The popular American guard has signed for a third time for the La Laguna-based CB Canarias side, after spending last year at Girona. Despite netting the last-gasp basket that knocked Canarias out of the promotion play-offs in the fifth game decider in May, Rost has always been hugely popular with the fans and can expect a hero’s welcome when he takes to the court against Breogán for the first home game. The Michigan player said he was delighted to be coming back to La Laguna, which he and his wife Leslie call their, “second home”. The signing has also thrilled coach Alejandro Martínez, for whom Rost is one of the best performers in the LEB league in recent years. Rost’s previous stints in La Laguna were 20062008 and 2009-2010. The news gets even better for the La Laguna outfit, however. Another prodigal son, Jakim Donaldson, signed in mid-August to team up

again with his old team-mates after a year at Menorca in the premiership. The return of Donaldson - who joins Richi Guillén, Jesús Chagoyen and Fotis Lampropolous gives Canarias the most formidable attack in the league.

Tenerife’s most famous footballer of the moment has been rewarded for his excellent 2010-11 season with a new contract that will keep him at Spanish and European Barcelona until 2016. Abades idol Pedro Rodríguez was the subject of transfer speculation earlier in the summer after Barcelona signed Udinese’s Chilean striker Alexis Sánchez. However, rather than offload the Canarian winger, manager Pep Guardiola asked the club to improve his contract to repay him for the 22 goals scored last season. The improved deal includes a prohibitive buy-out clause of €150 million should any other club try to tempt him away.
