El Sauzal

‘cOulD haVe Been saVeD’

Although normally known as the home of Tenerife’s Case del Vino wine museum, El Sauzal is celebrating another ‘drink success’ at present following the official uncorking of the first bottles of this year’s local champagne cider.

t

he closure of regional airline Islas airways could have been avoided, according to several investors who were prepared to put money into the troubled airline in the months before its recent collapse. according to local daily el Día, a number of well-known firms held talks with the airline’s chairman Miguel concepción to negotiate a stake in Islas to tide it over its financial problems but the approaches failed to produce a result, leading some of them to

openly criticise concepción’s business acumen. among those said to have expressed serious interest was supermarket chain Mercadona, although its interest cooled quickly due to what the paper called the Islas airways chairman’s “exorbitant demands” and his refusal to sell more than 50 per cent of the company. Others believed to have made approaches include the lopesan hotel chain and property development group, and shipping company armas, who saw the airline as a viable investment due to the constant demand for inter-island flights.

Almost 2,500 litres of cider have been bottled by local firm Posma and although the figure is 500 litres lower than last year’s production, it is expected to increase further in the coming months thanks to the excellent harvest of Reineta apples, which occupy almost a quarter of El Sauzal’s farmland at present due to the boom of interest in cider. The official launch at Posma was attended by the town’s mayor, Mariano Pérez, and Tenerife’s agriculture chief José Joaquín Bethencourt.

At 17 per cent, the annual fall in value recorded in the case of newly-built homes in the Canaries is even higher, according to the latest figures released by the Spanish government. (Fredica),RafaelPombriego, says the predicted 10 per cent rise in sales under the incentive “will help” but falls way short of the 24 per cent slump anticipated for this year due to the crisis. “The previous scheme of a few years ago produced a 20 per cent growth in sales but we expect this one to have less overall impact by its end-date of 31 March 2013. The sector is going through a bad time at present, with seven of the region’s 62 importers and dealers having closed already explained Pombriego.

Puerto de la Cruz’s information panels for tourists are a welcome presence but should not be taken too literally, says Tenerife daily Diario de Avisos, which ran a check recently on the accuracy of the indications provided on them. According to the paper, several glaring mistakes appear on three of the big panels which are consulted daily by hundreds of visitors to the northern town. The three, located in Calle Iriarte, Punta del Viento and next to the Martiánez beach, are highly misleading, to the extent that in the first of the trio, the You

Are Here marker makes tourist believe they are in a totally different street. Other gaffes include a Tourist Information Office on the Plaza de Europe, when it was moved three years ago to the Customs House at the harbour, and references to a non-existent theatre and cinema. A street named after Franco, which was changed back in 2008, still survives in its old form on the panels. According to the newspaper, the councillor responsible for the information panels said “they had been erected under a previous council and she was not aware of any errors”

The skipping verger There was standing room only for the presentation of John Reid Young’s book of short stories recently at All Saints Church in Puerto de la Cruz. Ken Fisher and John Lucas shared the stage to wet people’s appetites and successfully too as the queue afterwards to buy or reserve a copy bore witness. We agree with John Lucas’ summing up entirely. This is a witty and humorous book, sometimes touching and deep, which could only have been written by someone with a profound knowledge of the Canary Islands, Tenerife and especially the Orotava Valley. Many of the short stories deal with the relationships between the Canary Islanders and the expats, especially British expats, and the book brings to life Puerto as it was several decades ago. The author

thanked his presenters, his family – with a special romantic message for his wife – and his illustrator, Annie Chapman, whose whimsical drawings bring the tales even more to life. The Skipping Verger and Other Tales by John Reid Young is on sale on line from Amazon (cheaper from Amazon Spain) and also at Librería Bárbara in Los Cristianos. A great read and a great gift idea for anyone with a little piece of Tenerife in their heart!

Extradition arrest

Santiago del Teide police have managed to detain a 47 year old Polish man who was wanted under an extradition order. The incident came about after a driver of a foreign registered car was asked to stop when officers noticed the vehicle’s cracked windscreen. When the driver continued, agents were forced to use a police car to intercept the car. Upon checking the papers of the four occupants against the Schengen Information System (SIS), a Europe wide security database, the Polish man came up as wanted in his home country. The detained man was given over to the Guardia Civil for further action.

GibSon iGniTeS WaR debaTe Controversial Irish-born Hispanist Ian Gibson was guest speaker at the Autumn of Culture organised by the CajaCanarias Bank in Santa Cruz and did not disappoint the large audience who turned up on the night. Originally from Dublin but now a Spanish citizen, the outspoken academic has long occupied the headlines with his opinions on a range of social and political issues, particularly Spain’s failure to openly recognise the atrocities committed by the Franco regime for many decades. Highly active politically, Gibson has regularly taken up the cudgel against conservatism here and elsewhere and championed leftwing causes, particularly the

search for the grave of poet Federico García Lorca, who was executed by Fascists in the summer of 1936. During his Tenerife talk, he said that it was “a disgrace” that Spain did not devote more effort to locating the spot where Lorca was buried. “The families of those who lost the War are just as entitled to know what happened to their loved ones” he said. Gibson, who is preparing a detailed biography of filmmaker Luis Buñuel, criticised the Spanish Right for its insistence on “not reopening old wounds” as an excuse not to investigate war crimes committed under the Franco dictatorship.

and virtually unchanged throughout their lifespan”. according to the organisers, the objects displayed “epitomise modern-day ideals such as the economic use of materials, functionality and durability”. Many of the items on view are things we take for granted, but on reflection certainly merit both consideration for their contribution to our daily lives and inclusion in a most use-

ful invention contest. the list includes clothes pegs, staples, tetra pak drink packaging, sticking plasters, zip fasteners, tins, umbrellas, floor mops, lego bricks and post-It sticky notes. all of the inventions on show are accompanied by interesting explanations of their origins. the exhibition is being staged at the Instituto cabrera pinto on calle san agustín.

Fast and Furious action director - Spiro Razatos

Action stations! By Xena Fox

Spiro Razatos in the editing suite, ready to work

M

Well, for those few of you who may not, incredibly, have heard yet: one such Hollywood extravaganza is being filmed in Tenerife right now, and Island Connections were lucky enough to be invited along to interview Second Unit Director and stunt coordinator, Spiro Razatos. In his present role, or as a stuntman or actor, Spiro has worked on many of the big films, including The Expendables, Total Recall, Vantage Point, Back to the Future, Star Trek, Return of the Living Dead and Herbie: Fully Loaded, to name but a few. He’s here to work on the latest Fast and Furious film – think high speed car chases and extravagant explosions – and whilst he mostly directs nowadays, during his stuntman years he’s been in such a variety of dangerous situations it somehow seems a wonder he’s sat in front of me, whole and healthy. However, good job he is, because he has been very busy. During the making of a film the First Unit, basically speaking, covers the faceto-face drama between the principal actors. Whilst the Second Unit will usually do the action sequences, often in discreet locations, which use stunt personnel rather than the principal cast, and that require significantly dif-

ferent filming arrangements than for ordinary scenes. Thus, over the last few weeks Spiro and his team have been filming a myriad of crashes, tumbling bridges and screeching pursuits: the majority of them on the section of ring road between Adeje and Tamaimo that, luckily for the crew, still isn’t finished and therefore not in use. Off set, Spiro Razatos is open, friendly and refreshingly down to earth throughout the whole interview. Born in 1960 in the United States, you get the feeling that Spiro’s childhood was far from ideal. In fact, it’s probably fair to say that he learnt some of life’s hardest lessons at a very young age, helped along by a traditional, toughlove style Greek mother and a father who was to fall right down on his luck. It could be this, of course, that has instilled the fighting spirit that has helped him achieve what he has. He started doing stunts extremely young, but when I ask him whether he was a daredevil as a child he shakes his head. “No, no”, he says, and then goes on to describe

green banana guide

a number of seemingly daredevil feats. The difference, he insists, was in the planning. These weren’t childish stunts performed spontaneously on a whim: they were carefully plotted, judged and practiced before being carried out. Several such feats, he laughs, can be seen on YouTube. The video, titled Stunts aged 10 – 15, shows him and his friends having choreographed fights, faking falls and throwing themselves off buildings: performances that look like, no matter how well planned, they may well have caused the odd bruise or two - there weren’t fall protectors or harnesses when he started out, he reminds me. Spiro can, in fact, pinpoint the exact moment he decided his path in life. After his parents separated, his father used to take him on regular trips to the cinema, and twice a year they’d jump on a greyhound bus and get out into the hills for some peace and relaxation. On one such trip, at the age of 10, they arrived at their destination to be confronted by a billboard advertising the 1971 film

ore often than not it’s the stars of a film that get the majority of adoration, but we all know that behind each bigname cinema release there are hoards of people that worked extremely hard to make it all happen.

Blowing up

and he began to design his own stunts. Needing to be on form, one of the things he did to get fit, and sharpen his reactions, was taunt bullies and then run away from them. He learnt to survive and honed his skills, and channelled his knowledge into developing ever more complicated moves. Totally self taught, it was, he admits, a bit hit and miss. With no one around to show him, he used his eyes and mind to work out the best ways to do things, and he doesn’t mind admitting his naivety at times. For

Shaft. Spiro begged his father to go in and see it and, after much deliberation, his father agreed: on the proviso that if they were going to swap their country walk for an ordinary trip to the cinema then they would stay there all day. And that’s what they did – they watched Shaft precisely three and a half times, before jumping on the bus back home. The Spiro of today was born: emulating the star of the film, Richard Roundtree, he began practicing his detective and general hard-man skills. Of course it wasn’t long before he realised it was actually the stunt men who were performing all the real action

instance, he was practicing setting himself on fire, as you do, at about 12 or 13 years old and, bless, after a few attempts he decided that maybe wearing two pairs of pyjamas at once might protect him a little. “Good job they were cotton’, he jokes. Or a budding career could have quickly gone up in poisonous smoke. Having gathered quite a few fans in those early days, he and his friends started charging other kids to watch Spiro’s daring acts, or bets would be taken on whether he could accomplish some seemingly impossible feat. With the slowly accumulated cash he bought himself a Super 8 camera, shot and edited a film of himself doing stunts

and soon after managed to get it to Robert Wagner’s stunt double. Who, Spiro thinks, probably watched it with another stunt friend of his, “for entertainment, for a bit of a laugh”. But that friend called Spiro and offered a helping hand if he ever wanted to get into the business. He soon spent a few weeks in Hollywood, funding it at first by dishwashing, and not long after began training there and working in films. The stunts he has performed over the years boggles the mind, and the obvious question is: has he ever been hurt whilst working? Well, yes, strictly speaking. He was injured whilst playing a security guard in a scene in which he was, well, simply walking. With lots of children on the set, he had hold of two dogs and he’d been ordered not to let go of them, for safety. “Great huge things”, he assures me, “I had one in each hand, when suddenly they both went off in different directions.” - wrenching one of his shoulders. And that’s it. He talks about other stunt men who have spent time in hospital when it’s all gone wrong - it kind of goes with the job. But he’s been very lucky, and seems to know it. After a few short years there came a choice: carry on doubling and doing stunts, or direct whole movies – albeit with, ermm, modest budgets, “you know, the type that don’t even make it on to the big screen, those that go straight to video”, he chuckles. These included films such as the 1991 action comedy Fast Getaway starring Corey Haim. Nevertheless, he loved directing, and still does. Continues on page 8

Pirate history lesson

choolchildren in Gran Canaria are receiving a helping hand to learn about one of the most important dates in the history of the island’s capital. Under a new scheme called Under Attack, devised by a local writer and promoted by the Cabildo, pupils from 18 schools are being given guided tours to the scenarios of a devastating pirate attack on Las Palmas at the end of the 16th century. The two-week attack by the dreaded Dutch pirate Peter van der Does and his massive force of 74 ships in the summer of 1599 brought untold problems for the island, particularly the capital, where important churches and other buildings were burnt down by the invaders as they tried to force the population into

The controversy arose a couple of weeks ago when it was revealed that Telde paid a staggering €8,500

submission and to hand over their wealth. The Dutch pirates, who were constantly ambushed by small groups of local militia at sea and on land, eventually abandoned their

attempts on 4 July and departed to plunder Spanish colonies in the Caribbean, although not before almost destroying Las Palmas in anger. Since October 19, schoolchildren have been

and a full investigation has been ordered to clarify why the invoices were approved without query. The embarrassing revelations put Telde on national TV news and prompted calls for the resignation of the officials who authorised the payments. The favoured company is also at the centre of a probe into why it was allowed to invoice hundreds of hours for the cleaning of empty council buildings.

alm trees throughout Gran Canaria are under threat from a devastating insect whose presence has been detected from the resorts in the south of the island up as far as Arucas on the north coast. The deadly insect, called the palm weevil borer (Diocalandra frumenti), measures just six millimetres but is causing havoc among the trees after reemerging forcefully after a lull of several years.

As the film offers got bigger, the obvious place for him was Second Unit Director – a job with which the post of stunt coordinator is often combined. He gets to operate independently and enjoy the certain level of autonomy that is probably necessary for this independent fellow who needs to feel, “in charge, in jeopardy”. It’s perfect really, as he no longer does his own stunt work - there are still plenty of ways of getting a thrill, including the odd close call on set when, looking for that all important and exciting angle, he manages to be just a little too close to the action, yet survives once again. A major part of being a Second Unit Director is ensuring continuity and following the style being set by the film’s primary director. Both units’ material has to match exactly so no-one can tell they are being shot by two teams, at different times. It is thanks, says Spiro, to the constant communication between himself and Director, Justin Lin, that they are able to achieve this. They speak almost every day, run ideas by each other regularly, and way before Spiro’s unit began filming out here plans were laid for both photography and style of direction.

TV headlines

he extraordinary amount of toilet paper paid for by Telde council at a public convenience has made the national news as an example of the strange arrangements that can exist between town halls and favoured contractors.

:: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

Gran Canaria authorities have launched a concerted drive to treat thousands of palm trees already affected

by the pest and are carrying out a detailed survey to see how many others may be harbouring the weevil.

The finding is a major blow given that palms are only now recovering from another type of weevil which hit many trees across the island a couple of years ago. Initially it was believed the drying up of palm trees along the coast had been caused by the severe water shortage but closer inspection revealed the presence of the newly reactivated weevil borer, which can kill off a tree in just eight months, according to experts.

Spiro is, he admits, a perfectionist, both for himself and others, and it is easy to imagine him as quite a hard taskmaster. However, if this is so, it obviously pays off as he has won a whole ream of awards over the years. One of the earliest was for Best Fight Sequence which he received for the making of Hell Town, in1985, and he’s still winning this year, having gained recognition for his work on Fast & Furious 5. Whilst he chats there are several names that keep coming up time and again. Stunt coordinator Andy Gill is one of them and Spiro describes him as his, “backbone”. They have worked together for almost three decades and Spiro states several times that he couldn’t have achieved what he has without the many people who have been with him right down the line. So what does a man that lives such an adventureled life do for fun, I wonder? Have more adventure of course: both real and virtual. Spiro and his friends like to play Call of Duty; at home near Malibu he has a room with 16 television screens and the same number of Xboxes, so they can all play the modern warfare game at the same time. He chuckles, again, at how un-cool it all is, “we even still play a version that’s eight years old”, he says: an absolute eternity in video games, of course. Later, I found out that this room actually cost over three quarters of a million euros and contains just about every sort of game you can think of, from billiards to air hockey. However, he also likes to stay in shape and enjoys tennis and hiking, but most of all he loves to go walking with his new wife, Rema Charles. And here, just briefly, you can see that yes, it is exciting, but sometimes it’s all a long way from home. In fact, the crew has been here for around six weeks now and then there’s another fortnight in London, but he would like to be home for Thanksgiving. Relaxed and entertaining, Spiro pretty much chuckled through the whole interview. There is a definite childlike love of life going on and it seems that here is a guy who has had an interesting time and is still enjoying himself greatly. And may he continue to do so. As a foot note, whilst doing the interview I spent a little time around the editing screens and it would be hard for the eye to not be caught by them at some point. And so it was, that for a few tantalising seconds, I glimpsed a preview of the unfinished cut. And do you know what was on the screen? Our ring road to be. The building of it may not have been fast and furious in the least, much to the lament of some, but it will be immortalised on the film of that name, and viewed in cinemas all around the world. Funny that.

Members of the r uling party want to contribute their Christmas payments, a total of around €25,000, to be distributed amongst those families in the borough that are desperately struggling in these difficult times. The council, led by Juan Damián Gorrín Ramos, took the decision in support of the 150 families that are presently receiving help from the administration. The money will go towards buying food, medication and paying the families’ accommodation costs. A spokesperson for the

Negative neglect

Combined complaintS They stated that roads, pavements and public areas are not being maintained or cleaned appropriately, as suits an area of such high touristic impor-

tance, and that this gives a bad impression to visitors. The coastal area of the borough, in particular, is indeed in need of some care and attention,

is still rising every day. Whilst the lack of basic food and shelter are considered emergencies and are supported by social services, many families are finding it increasingly difficult to meet rising costs. In particular, the number of requests for help with school expenses, such as meals, is notably higher. Unfortunately this does not come under the remit for emergency care although La Caixa bank has helped 40 of the area’s families with these, and other, costs this year to the tune of €10,200. The Red Cross is also involved in supporting the poorest families via their foodbank in Tamaimo and would welcome any donations. but this is a situation that has been going on for many years, since way before the present financial crisis which can only be aggravating the situation. The group protesting against the lack of upkeep is insisting that the apparent neglect has a negative effect on tourism and is bad for business.

he wonderful La Tahonilla Flora and Fauna recuperation centre is tucked away on the La Esperanza road near La Laguna.

Last edition we spoke about the side of it that deals with the island’s injured wild animals. This article describes the work that’s done to maintain the biodiversity of the island’s plant life. The flora centre catalogues, preserves and grows indigenous plants on a large scale. These are for distribution around the island by the centre’s staff, and island council horticulturalists, in a careful and controlled programme that is trying to ensure the survival of Tenerife’s natural habitat. It is a fascinating place to visit and a large section of the flora centre is open to the public. It is possible to see the organisation’s work, and even buy a few plants to take away with you – each of which will have been perfectly matched to the area you live in. As you drive into the car park one of the first things you notice is that although, yes, the centre is obviously growing on a large scale, the grounds are beautifully kept and the whole area is being made as welcoming as possible. Not all sections of the Flora centre are open to visitors, but we were lucky enough to have a full tour and have their work explained to us by

Selling on

The ďŹ rst place we get a good look at is the sales area where you can choose which plants to take away with you. This isn’t a garden centre so you won’t find a whole host of exotic varieties, but what you will see are plants that belong on the island and about which you can get advice about the different climates and areas they would

naturally grow in. A lot of the plants on sale are leftovers from the centre’s big replanting jobs so, again, they don’t keep a particular stock in just to please the public, but there is something satisfying about knowing that when you do take a plant you will be contributing in a small way to maintaining the island’s natural environment in a balanced manner. Not only that, but they are sold at very reasonable prices according to three different sizes of pot, regardless of how big the plant is. A one litre pot costs just ₏2, anything in a three to six litre pot costs ₏6 and, fabulously, for 15 - 17 litre pots the grand plants can be bought for just ₏20. The centre also donates many examples to schools, cultural associations and charities who want to plant garden areas. They even give plants away to the general public on certain days of the year, such as World Tree Day.

Care & nurture

From the sales area we went into the ďŹ rst greenhouse. It was a hot day so it was a pleasure to enter the covered area where the seedlings are cared for. All you can see are rows and rows of tiny plants that stretch out in long, organised lines. Temperature is regulated as much as possible and the greenhouse has an almost subtropical feel to

it, with the hot sun outside but a cool, fresh and moist interior. Taking a moment to inspect the miniscule bushes and trees in the making, one begins to get an idea of the rich diversity of the flora here. The diversity is due to the multitude of different growing areas and in the greenhouse there is an impressive array of plants. The centre deals with vegetation from all of the different habitats, from those that inhabit the coastal and generally arid low mountain areas, such as Spurge (Euphorbia Canariensis), through to the Canarian Foxglove (Isoplexis canariensis) that grows in the transition zones, and the pretty Rock rose (Cistus symphytifolius) that prefers the high mountain pine forest areas. The next greenhouse is dedicated to the older and stronger plants and this is their last stopping place before they are moved to one of the outside areas to become used to the strident sunshine.

Education

In the area surrounding the greenhouses there are three wonderfully engineered ecosystems, one for each of the main growing areas around the island – coastal and lowland, pine forest, and laurel forest. These are maintained as akin to their natural sur-

roundings as much as possible and to visit each of them is like entering three very distinct, mini worlds: all within a few hundred square metres. The centre offers tours for schools and interested parties and these zones provide an opportunity to see the plants growing naturally. Possibly the most attractive is the laurel forest area where, amongst others, the rich leafed Canarian laurel (Laurus novocanariensis), holly (Ilex canariensis) and Til (Ocotea foetens) trees grow abundantly. As we carry on through the centre, Angeles points out small areas of work in progress. Little by little the team is opening up more areas to the public and one day they hope to have their own visitor centre. Although the staff already makes a huge contribution to the knowledge and appreciation of our natural heritage, they would like to reach a wider audience.

Store and save

Evidently there is a lot of work to do to maintain the grounds and nurseries, but that is only one side of their objective. For instance, members of the team take regular trips out to rural areas to collect seeds. These are carefully marked with the date and the exact area they were taken from, and once back in the centre they are sorted and placed in the seed deposit. Housed in the

laboratory building, the store contains shelf after shelf of plant potential, meticulously accumulated and stocked up, for when they may be needed. Thanks to the data collection system it is possible to ensure that, when plants are distributed, they go to exactly where they should be. Not only are plants classified by their natural habitat but they can now be returned, as far as possible, to the precise areas they came from: many of the deep valleys around the island house their own varieties of plants, for instance, and it is imperative to plant the same genetic line.

Restoration

The centre will also be responsible for the majority of the replanting of areas damaged by this year’s ďŹ res. It is a tricky job that must be judged very carefully and the team is keeping a close eye on the weather: if they plant rural areas too soon the seedlings won’t receive enough water to survive. If they do it before a storm, or too late in the year, they will be simply washed away and all the team’s work will have been for nothing. It is heartbreaking to drive through areas which were devastated by the fires, such as the entrance to the MontaĂąas de Agua in the Erjos area in the borough of El Tanque, but it will be a wonderful experience to watch the regeneration over the coming years, especially knowing the hard work that will be going into helping it along. It was impossible to resist leaving without one or two plants in hand. So having given the area and height of our home location, we were offered a choice of three or four indigenous plants from the zone. It is wonderful to think that we have taken them back to their home, to live their lives in their natural environment, as they should. Also, all the money raised by selling plants goes towards continuing the programme of biodiversity conservation, so it is doubly satisfying. The centre can be found at kilometre 0.4 on the Carretera General de la Esperanza and is open to the public from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am and 2pm.

any companies celebrate the anniversary of their inauguration. tenerife pearl does it in such a spectacular way that some clients actually programme their holidays around that special day. On Saturday of November 24th in their Armeñime branch and Sunday of November 25th in Puerto de la Cruz and Candelaria, all the jewellery on display will be on sale at half price! This is the only day of the year that they offer all the items on display at 50 per cent discount. It’s a marvellous opportunity to go shopping for Christmas presents, birthday gifts or a treat for yourself. The choice is simply amazing, from the timeless elegance of the classic pearl necklace, earrings and bracelets in a range of incredible colours as well as fashionable and unique designs, exclusive to Tenerife Pearl. It’s strictly first come, first served, which is the reason for a queue outside the door first thing in the

morning. The dash for the desired counters is a sight to be seen. Last year saw over 2,000 visitors in the Armeñime branch with the event gaining in popularity every year. If you have your eye on a particular item, you will need to be there early. Extra staff are on duty, able to attend everyone with Tenerife Pearl’s customary care and courtesy. However if you just want to browse and pick up a bargain, the afternoons are a little more tranquil. The store also gives several Non Governmental Organisations the opportunity to share this day with them, benefiting from the high footfall the store enjoys. The Armeñime venue opens its doors from 9am to 8pm on the Ctra General del Sur, 12 (922 741 250), Candelaria opens from10am to 6.30pm at C/ Obispo Pérez Cáceres, 27 (922 502 923) and Puerto de la Cruz from 9am to 9.45pm at C/Quintana 20 (922 374 723).

Several tax increases were established and the 99.9 per cent allowance which was applicable to the inheritance tax payable by parents, children and spouses who were residents in the Canary Islands was abolished. In Spain the autonomous regions are allowed to set their own inheritance tax levels and allowances, these were drastically reduced by the new law. Taxable beneficiaries are divided into four distinct groups which are taxed in a different way:

Group I: Descendants and adopted

children under twenty-one years. Group II: Issue and adopted issue of twenty one years or more, spouses (or ‘parejas de hecho’), parents and adoptive parents. Group III: Second degree relatives (brothers/sisters) and third degree (uncles/aunts, nephews/nieces), and their ascendants and descendants. Group IV: Fourth degree relatives (cousins) and more distant relatives, and strangers (including non adopted stepchildren). The new allowances applicable to the residents in the Canary Islands are:

Group I beneficiaries receive a 100 per cent tax allowance up to a maximum of: a. €138,650 if they are un-

der 10 years old; b. €92,150 if they are aged 10 to 14; c. €57,650 if they are aged 15 to 17, d. €40,400 if they are aged 18 to 20.

Group II beneficiaries receive the following deductions from the taxable value: a. The spouse receives a deduction of €40,400, b. Children and adopted children of twenty-one years or more receive a deduction of €23,125; and c. The rest of descendants, parents and adoptive parents receive a deduction of €18,500. Group III beneficiaries receive a tax deduction from the taxable value of €9,300. Group IV beneficiaries receive no deduction. Further allowances are established where the inheritor is disabled or over 75, and also in relation to life insurances, business and company shares, main home, ‘patrimonio histórico’, ‘patrimonio natural’ and if the same assets are the object of various transmissions. These allowances only apply for the estates of people who have been resident in the Canary Islands for five years and the beneficiaries are similarly resident. If both the deceased and beneficiaries do not satisfy the residency requirement then the national state rules apply, and these allow a deduction of just under €16,000 from the taxable value for spouse, children and parents of the deceased and just under €8,000 for Group III beneficiaries.

Your tax obligations in Spain It is more important than ever to get it right By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

M

any British expatriates living in Spain do not understand where they have to pay tax. They either mistakenly believe they have a choice, or they do not declare themselves for tax in Spain. The irony is, it is often more beneficial to pay tax in Spain than in the UK. You are tax resident in Spain if any of the following apply: 1) You spend more than 183 days in Spain in a calendar year 2) Your ‘centre of economic interests’ is in Spain 3) Spain is your ‘centre of vital interests’

There is no choice; you either are, or are not, resident under the rules. If you meet the tax residence criteria of both Spain and the UK, tie breaker rules will determine where you pay tax. As a resident in Spain, you are liable to Spanish tax on all your worldwide income and gains. You currently also need to declare your worldwide assets for wealth tax purposes. Some UK source income is also taxable in the UK, although the double tax treaty between the UK and Spain determines how double tax relief is applied. Anyone not applying the rules correctly is likely to be caught out. The Spanish government desperately needs to increase revenue and is intensifying its crackdown on tax fraud. Until 30th November 2012, anyone with undeclared income and gains (including non-residents income tax) can take advantage of a tax ‘amnesty’. The government has promised to get much tougher once the amnesty is over.

The Spanish government is intensifying its crackdown on tax fraud Higher taxes for longer? Taxpayers in Spain are paying more income tax this year. The scale rates of income tax increased across the board, ranging from an additional 0.75 per cent for income below €17,007 to an extra

seven per cent on income over €300,000. This takes the top rate of tax up to 52 per cent. Tax on savings income was hiked to 21 per cent for income up to €6,000, then 25 per cent on the next €18,000 and 27 per cent on the excess over €24,000. Non-resident property owners

may also be affected. Their tax rate on general income increased to 24.75 per cent for 2012 and 2013, and the rate on Spanish dividends, interest and capital gains from the transfer of assets increased to 21 per cent. When announced, the government said these higher taxes would only apply for 2012 and 2013 income. However, they were implemented as part of the deficit reduction measures when the plan was to bring the deficit down to three per cent in 2013. We already know this will not happen until 2014, so it seems likely the higher rates will need to apply for that year as well. Wealth tax, meant to be temporary for 2011 and 2012, has already been extended for another year. Contact an international tax and wealth management firm like Blevins Franks for clarification on your tax situation in Spain, and for guidance on the tax saving opportunities available here. Blevins Franks has a team of

specialists who keep a close eye on tax legislation in Spain and the UK. It specialises in understanding the interaction of Spanish and UK tax and the implications for British expatriates, as well as in helping clients minimise taxation and protect their capital. Summarised tax information is based upon our understanding of current laws and practices which may change. Individuals should take personalised advice.

Something for nothing

a

British firm’s claim to be able to make fuel from just air, water and electricity is slowly gaining credence.

The company, called Air Fuel Synthesis, is developing a design, which is authenticated by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), that relies on the fact that oil is basically made from carbon and hydrogen. Carbon can be found aplenty in the air, in the form of carbon dioxide, and hydrogen is present in water. The commercial model of the AFS system uses renewable energy to capture carbon dioxide and water from CO2 point sources, such as breweries, distilleries or aerobic digestors. The water is then electrolysed to form hydrogen and make it react with the carbon dioxide - creating liquid hydrocarbon fuels.

THE SOCIAL NETWORK

Cashing in A brand new social media platform has just been launched. Pheed allows users to share text, photos and videos, voice-notes, audio clips and livebroadcasting.

The team of scientists come entrepreneurs is evidently looking for backers. Could this be one of the network of solutions to the apparently dire prediction by the International Energy Agency that there will be a fall in global oil production to about half today’s levels by 2030, whilst during the same time period just China’s population alone is expected to increase by a further 200 million people.

naut is moving, working muscles and parts of the body that are not usually needed in microgravity. Although it is currently in the research and development phase, Nasa is hoping that it will help keep astronauts in trim whilst aboard a space station and during future long stretch missions to Mars, for example. The device is fitted with sensors that measure the effectiveness of the exercise regime, meaning that doctors on Earth can record the astronauts’ progress and make adjustments to the suit as appropriate. The project is being developed in conjunction with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) which has provided the walking algorithms for the

device. A future aim of the project is to improve the design so that, during surface exploration, the X1 will provide additional force when necessary,

to enable astronauts to walk in reduced gravity environments in a similar way to how people walk on the Earth’s surface.

Buying a second home Second Home Tenerife

P

urchasing a second home is about much more than having somewhere to stay when you’re on holiday; for many people it is a possible permanent or winter home for when they retire, a place where friends and relatives can be welcomed, a home from home. Tenerife is an extraordinarily popular second home location and there are many reasons for that. It’s geographical position just off the coast of Africa means that it enjoys a climate of eternal spring, there are no rainy or hurricane seasons and the American space agency NASA say the climate of the Canary Islands is, “the best in the world”. With two international airports it is eminently accessible and its special status within Europe guarantees all legal rights whilst offering a lower tax regime. The choice of activities is seemingly endless with every type of sport catered for, in-

numerable excursions, night clubs, archaeological sites, botanical gardens, spas, leisure parks and gastronomically the range on offer is superb. It’s a mature, cosmopolitan destination with a multinational population delighting in sharing their own cultures and enjoying the best of all of the still very much alive and vibrant Tenerife traditions. You can still see how sea salt is collected in ‘family’ basins on the sea shore, enjoy the thrill of watching the horses and oxen work in the threshing floors to separate the grain from the straw, sit and guard the smoky charcoal pits through the night, help collect the almond harvest armed with a long stick and a basket or attend one of the many local, colourful romería parades to take pleasure in the regional costumes, music and dancing. Even more than buying your main home, the choice of an estate agent here is vital, you are after all dealing

with laws and procedures in a country and language that is foreign to you. Second Home Tenerife has been in operation now for more than 13 years and is still expanding. They are a renowned estate agent with an excellent reputation for selling, buying and renting property. Their portfolio consists of more than 600 properties in the South of Tenerife, an area they specialise in, particularly

in the prime real estate areas of Costa Adeje, Playa del Duque, La Caleta and PalmMar. In particular, thanks to their own developments and close collaboration with other developers, they have an enormous choice of brand new properties to offer. Their commitment to customer service is second to none and they not only try and find you the right property, but offer an after-sales

Decorating ::

Make a small bedroom feel bigger Know how

Your bedroom is the one room in the house that should feel as tranquil and relaxing as possible. The ideal is for it to have a warm and welcoming ambience that sooths you as soon as you walk in, but what if you only have a small bedroom, how can you make it a more relaxing room to be in? The most important step is to remove clutter, as the more you have in your bedroom the more cramped it will feel. Take a good look around the room and, first of all, con-

sider the furniture. If there is anything that you can place in another room or pass on to someone else, then do so. If you need every item in there then consider how you can rearrange things. Enlist the help of a friend and try furniture in different positions: it’s amazing the difference you can make by swapping furniture around. If you have the opportunity to acquire new furniture, consider space saving options such as small shelves instead of bedside cabinets, and folding tables with shelf

units above them instead of vanity units. Also, choose double use furniture such as blanket boxes that can be a seat and storage area. Next, cast an eye over the

personal belongings you have in there. Do they really need to be in your bedroom? Is there anywhere else they can go, have they been lying around for a while, do

you really need them? Get right in there and have a good sorting session. Pass on anything you don’t want any more, including clothes, and tidy, rearrange and put away everything else. If you have collections of objects, use decorative baskets to store them together, rather than having them spread around: clearing the tops of all surfaces will instantly create a feeling of space. Next, look at your lamps and other fixtures. Keep accessories small, to suit the room, and this applies to furniture as well. If you are redecorating choose light colours and use an even lighter shade on the ceiling, which instantly gives the illusion of extra height. Dark colours on the walls make any space feel smaller and more closed in, so it is especially important in small

rooms to keep the paint as light as possible. To make the room feel cosy you can always add accessories in darker colours. Throw pillows, rugs, drapery and bed linen can all add interest, and coordinating them will also help make your room feel bigger. Creating a centre piece to the room will draw the eye to that area and away from any trouble spots. Try hanging a large picture above the bed or making one of your pieces of furniture a focal point by adding flowers and have the curtains open as wide as possible to allow in as much natural light as you can – a well illuminated space will instantly lift your mood. A small bedroom can be a challenge, but it can also feel cosy and unique once you’ve cleared it and added some personal touches.

could have sold the bungalow (we both knew he would never return), moved her into a flat across the road from the care home and saved them some fifteen pounds there and fifteen pounds back in taxi fares every single day. everyone should consider giving a loved one their power of attorney; you never know what is round the corner and how much heartache can be saved. But a word of warning, you should only give your power of attorney to someone you would trust with your credit card in Oxford street or with your life. Depending on the type of power given, they could sell your property from under your feet.

ave you ever thought what would happen to your property if, for any reason, you were unable to make a decision about it at any given moment in time?

Let me tell you a story… My father, god rest his soul, came to tenerife, for what I now consider to be his farewell visit. he was a regular visitor to the island, always coming to stay with us, we even built a ‘granny flat’ in the garden of the house, so that he had his own room. this particular time, he was 76 by then, his wife 82, they came for what was to be a three week visit which turned into a nine week visit. Dad didn’t particularly look well, and was finding it difficult to get around; he was using a stick, and got out of breath easily. this was particularly hard to swallow, as he was normally a big, strong guy and every little girl thinks that their father is immortal. We had rigged up some kind of emergency alarm system, between the house and the granny flat. One morning in his last week; it went off about 6.00am. Dad’s wife came rushing over to the house, saying that Dad wanted to go home now! When I asked her what was wrong, she said he couldn’t breathe. While she got him dressed, I got the car out of the garage, and we went down to the green clinic. We drove straight up to the emergency depar tment; I jumped out of the car and shouted for help. Doctors and nurses

appeared from all directions and they took him through. his wife and I waited outside anxiously, for what seemed like an eternity, but was in fact about three hours. During which time, they did many tests and wired him up to every machine possible. eventually, a young argentinean doctor came out and asked me how long my father had been a diabetic. he wasn’t as far as I or his wife knew. It turned out that he had suffered a mild heart attack, something the doctors told me was not unusual for

diabetics to not know they had suffered. the lead doctor in the intensive care department, asked me to get his medical records from the uK. I tried constantly for four days to a) speak to his doctor and b) get some kind of medical report sent directly to the hospital. I explained what had happened, only to be told that it was patient/doctor confidentiality and they would not be supplying the required information. to cut a long story short, eventually we got him back to the uK, where he was put

into the county hospital for 22 weeks and eventually was transferred to a home, some 15 miles from his house. his wife due to her age had given up driving some five or six years previously, the car was sat in the garage. she would only use it, when I went over to visit (which was about once a month) when I drove the car to the home. their Bungalow was at the end of a road that was a mile and a half long, the bus stop being at the top. clearly a lady of 82 couldn’t be expected to walk that distance there and

back to get a bus. she insisted on visiting him daily, she was of the old school, and wanted to make sure that he had a clean shirt and pants every day, that he had had enough to eat and drink. During this time my father’s condition became steadily worse, he was by now suffering with dementia, but what neither of us thought about until it was too late, by which time he couldn’t speak, was a power of attorney. the moral of the story, is that had he given either of us a power of attorney, then we

Magnolia golf resort

Golfing properties

T

he island of Tenerife is a natural jewel with 43 protected areas, the highest in the Canaries. Spaced among the holiday destinations and some of the most spectacular scenery in the world are nine golf courses, six of them in the south, a number that is unlikely to increase greatly given the level of protection in place and the high cost of land, which is why prime properties in key locations close to golf courses will become increasingly sought after. If golf is your game, your pleasure and your passion, the Canaries and especially Tenerife is the ideal location for you with a wonderful climate and an average annual temperature of 23º that means you can enjoy your sport all year round.

Tucked away in a corner of Costa Adeje is the luxurious area of La Caleta, a fishing village that is home to some of the island’s finest hotels and retail centres as well as a modern marina, but is also still small enough to retain a village feel. It’s an area of high demand and it is here that the Spanish multinational company Acciona Inmobiliaria chose to build one of their most prestigious projects, Magnolia Golf Resort. Just 300 metres from the sea and only 100 metres from the 27-hole Costa Adeje Golf course, the company has used advanced technology and the best materials and finishings to build a complex of 120 two and three bedroomed spacious apartments with stunning views out across the Atlantic Ocean from almost all of them. The spaciousness of these apartments will

surprise and delight you as the intricate interior planning means maximum living space of approximately 100 sq metres in each property. The southern orientation of all the apartments means lots of natural light and lower electricity bills, running costs are also kept down by the solar powered hot water supply. Modern

air conditioning means total comfort 365 days a year. Fittings throughout are top quality, marble bathroom fittings and marble flooring throughout giving elegance and style to all the rooms and the complex offers panoramic views along the coast of La Caleta and Costa Adeje. . Choose from a ground floor apartment with a

garden or a duplex with a large terrace and enjoy the large shared grounds with an adults’ swimming pool, children’s pool, solarium, gym, sauna, putting green and Jacuzzi. Garage parking facilities and storage rooms are included with each property and security locks, security doors and an alarm are standard. These properties are selling now and a new show flat will shortly be ready because a visit is essential to fully appreciate the design and facilities on offer here. There is a dedicated sales person on site, Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm (922 168 600) and lots more information on the estate agent’s website (http://www.secondhometenerife.com) including an interactive plan which allows you to see which apartments are still available, their designs and prices at the click of your mouse.

ne such case was mentioned here recently but this week’s featured establishment has avoided the same mistake. But there again, gaf fes like those which regularly trigger bewilderment (and hilarity) would be unforgivable in the case of the La Bruma Tapas Bar in the old part of La Laguna, bearing in mind that one half of the couple that runs it has had his own translation agency for two and restaurants you will find decades. anywhere. “We were adaSuso Purriños has gone the extra mile to ensure non-Spanish customers know exactly what they are ordering at the fashionable little place on the city’s pedestrian Calle San Agustín, which is just as well because some of the short Spanish names for the ‘tapas’ would be meaningless otherwise. Thus, instead of a literal rendering of ‘Secreto Ibérico’, diners are helpfully informed on the English menu that the tapa consists of ‘crispy fried strips of pork on a small bed of French fries’. Similarly, the ultra-brief ‘Tiraditos’ becomes the much more meaningful ‘Marinated strips of Japanese butterfish topped with a yellow-pepper sauce’. Three months after opening, La Bruma, which is run by Suso and his partner Rocío Nevado, is making a discernible difference in what has always been a little-frequented district of the World Heritage City, at least at night, and the gossip column of one local daily has already acknowledged the “livelier atmosphere” of late along this end of a street best known for its Bishop’s Palace and History Museum. La Bruma occupies part of a tastefully renovated listed building. The premises were chosen after careful research into locations in La Laguna, which has one of the highest ratios of bars

mant that we would only open something really special. I have always been a keen cook at home and a big fan of tapas and fusion cuisine, so the choice of focus was never in doubt” explains Suso. The hunt for suitable premises took longer than expected but once the old house came on the market the couple knew their search was over. A delay in the completion of the work had one unfortunate consequence. Suso’s mother, Teresita Corbella - one of the main backers of the Tapas Bar project and a well-known actress in her time - died aged 80 just days before the opening and could not share in her son and daughter-inlaw’s happiness. In a posthumous tribute, La Bruma has adorned its walls with large black and white photos of her and some former acting colleagues. “Old-timers pop in just to look at the photos, which are so popular we have seriously thought about charging an admission fee!” says Suso. The artistic connection is an ever-present in La Bruma, which has an arrangement with a local art gallery to exhibit paintings and other works and also hosts live music. In terms of its food and drink, La Bruma is far from a run-of-the-mill establishment and indeed stands in stark contrast to the various student-oriented ‘bocadillo and beer’ bars found in abundance nearby. Its clientele are a far cry from the regulars of such establishments. It’s proving above all a magnet for older professionals and teachers and its tables and high bar-stools are taken up most nights by couples and groups

in their 40-somethings who are looking for a different culinary experience and whose imagination has clearly been caught by the well-presented and equally tasty selection of cold and hot tapas available. Deserving of particular mention are the fish and chicken dishes with a Thai-curry touch, the delicately-prepared homemade croquettes (especially the large ones filled with baby squid and rice and served with a tangy mustard sauce), the tuna fish tartare topped with a sauce of yoghurt and fresh mint, and the Moroccan-style lamb meatballs. Wine distributors have not taken long to realise that La Bruma’s customer profile makes it a prized outlet for their products.

Indeed, our visit to interview the owners was interrupted on three occasions by personal calls from firms from Tenerife and the mainland anxious to secure a permanent presence on the tables. Although undoubtedly pleased with how the early months have gone, Suso and Rocío know they will need to wait much longer

to get a true picture of the prospects for their new business. A problem they were already conscious of before taking the tapas bar plunge was the very low number of visitors who stay overnight in La Laguna, although that situation may change soon when a new 120-room hotel opens nearby in one of the city’s most impressive heritage buildings, just a short distance from La Bruma. One positive already is the fact that they get paid immediately for their efforts: “Clients of the translation agency, most of them public bodies, take ages to settle invoices so it is refreshing to get paid on the spot!” However, the couple’s delight at this new ‘experience’ is tempered by the realisation that the restaurant trade can be dangerously fashiondriven and they will need

to work long and hard to ensure they stay at the top of their game to guarantee continued custom once the novelty factor wears off. Having experienced the food and wines, not to mention the attentive (and pleasingly non-pushy) manner of the staff - the owners plus the enthusiastic young trio of Javi, Jorge and Laura at weekends -, there is every reason to have confidence that La Bruma’s old-style charm and globe-spanning range of tapas treats will remain a big draw for some time. At a very reasonable €39 for four substantial tapas dishes, dessert and a full bottle of Ribera de Duero red, neither of us who visited unannounced for lunch on a busy Sunday afternoon could have many complaints!

Dr. De La Flor

m_delaflor@hotmail.com

Dear Dr. De La Flor Dear Dr. De La Flor, How do you know when to stop antidepressants? I’ve been taking them for a year and I feel it’s difficult to tell if some of the symptoms are due to the depression or just the stress I have at work? Cheers, Jill

Dear Jill, Once I heard that getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars - you have to let go at some point in order to move forward. Feeling a bit down, experiencing solitude, sadness, or grief when we go through a tr ying life experience is par t of our road to heaven. It is essential though to distinguish between a clinical depression and ‘just the blues’. Clinical depression, major depressive disorder, or unipolar depression is a medical condition that goes beyond life’s ordinary ebbs and flows and normal ups and downs we all go through. A person with depression cannot simply “pull themselves together” and get better. Treatment with counselling, medication, and most importantly solid family and social support can be essential to recovery. Common depression

symptoms are: Depressed mood, sadness, or an ‘empty’ feeling; lack of interest or pleasure in activities you once enjoyed; significant weight loss (when not dieting) or gain; inability to sleep or excessive sleeping; restlessness or irritation or feelings of ‘dragging’; fatigue or loss of energy; feelings of worthlessness, or excessive or inappropriate guilt; difficulty thinking or concentrating, or indecisiveness; recurrent thoughts of death or suicide without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or specific plan for committing suicide. If you have five or more of these symptoms for most of the day, nearly every day, for at least two weeks, and the symptoms are severe enough to interfere with your daily activities, you need to continue with taking your medication. You should take your personal and family history to your doctor. There are several types of depression and depending on the type, severity, family as well as personal histor y and current circumstances, your

doctor may decide to either prolong or simply taper your medication. I hope and pray that your work/financial situation gets better and that you also come out of depression knowing yourself better, being more humble, more magnanimous, and not ashamed of sharing your feelings and emotions. When we share, we always win, and we normally get our loved ones to be more understanding with our str uggles and shortcomings. “Good humour is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.” Grenville Kleiser

ABORTION CONTROVERSY

Right to choose

By Dr De La Flor

During an Ethics class on Aristotle back in high school, a friend of mine posed our teacher the following question: “What´s the most important habit?” Our teacher replied promptly, “The most important habit is order. There’s no virtue or deeprooted habit without order.” Orderliness is about having a sense of priorities - differentiating what’s vital and what we must let go; it’s about keeping our mind focused on deep rooted values and principles; it’s about having a sense of where things belong and how they relate to each other, and having the courage and proactivity to keep them organised accordingly. In this sense, orderliness is not so much an external habit as a quality of our mental and spiritual life. One of my favourite writers as a kid was Mark Twain, he used to say, “Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.” In that sense, orderliness stems from within; it’s familiar to our interior asceticism and inner daily fight.

Dr. De La Flor, licensed G.P. (38/06089) holds certificates in coaching, nutrition and medical exercise from Berkeley University and the American Council on Exercise (ACE). His medical approach is highly influenced by Positive Psychology; an empowering, encompassing way of approaching patients through the study of their strengths and virtues to enable them to thrive and lead fulfilling lives, accept the past, find happiness in the present, and hope for the future. You can reach the doctor at 00-34-697.888.666 to schedule a consultation in his surgery or in your home/business.

The polemic debate over the proposed revision to the abortion laws continues. In a statement on a San Borondón radio programme, Marta Jiménez Jaén, head of the Canarian Women’s Secretariat, said, “The proposed reforms will not take us back decades, but directly back to the Middle Ages.” She was referring to the social effects of the new law, particularly on women’s rights. If it is passed, even those who have suffered rape or who know they are carrying a severely disabled child will have to take their case to court to seek official permission for an abortion.

INTERNATIONAL BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK

Use it or lose it

Around 16 per cent of people in the Canary Islands suffer from disorders which affect the nervous system.

The majority of Neurological diseases, which encompass conditions such as epilepsy, dementia, Multiple sclerosis and apraxia, can affect people of all ages, not just the elderly. In celebration of Brain Awareness Week an event was held in Santa Cruz recently, aimed at showing the public how important it is to keep the brain healthy. There were information stands and brain training activities, as well as the chance to undergo cerebral vascular examinations and to take part in perception and cognition tests.

SCIENCE

Longevity link

A team of researchers from the National Oncological Investigation Centre (CNIO) has undertaken a pioneering study. Longevity in mammals is apparently defined by the length of their telomeres: hood like portions of DNA that protect the ends of chromosomes from deterioration or attack. The relationship between the telomeres’ length and illnesses such as heart disease was already known. However this is the first time mammals have been followed throughout much of their lives, and seems to show that: the more gradual the shortening of the telomere, the longer the expected life span.

Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that you can place implants and teeth on the same day. Is this true and what do I have to do?

the gap has been there a while and the bone regresses, it needs to be built up again, so that the new implant takes hold.

A: Yes, but only if the bone mass is sufficient. If the implant and the tooth are to sit tight, they must be completely embedded in the bone. In our jargon, this is called bone integration. The stability of the implant is guaranteed by the growth of bone cells which grow around the implant, and give it support, which takes three to nine months. If

Optimal bone integration depends on several factors, such as the property of the bone, but also on the material used and the implant surface, so it’s important to seek professional advice. For information on where to find Dr. Chanut’s clinics, see his ad on opposite page.

HEALTH NEWS >

Whooping cough outbreak EPIDEMIC The Canarian Paediatric Society has classified the whooping cough spate in the Islands as an epidemic. This highly contagious illness is particulary dangerous in the case of infants and can cause permanent disability and death if not treated in time. So far 1,042 cases have been confirmed this year almost double the number for 2011, 40 per cent of the total registered in the whole of Spain. The numbers are particularly alarming when compared with 2010 when only 14

cases were documented. A one month old baby from La Palma has already died, sources say. One young mother, whose three-month baby was admitted recently to the University Hospital, slammed the conditions there for treating whooping cough. “Due to the shortage of nursing staff I had to stay round the clock with my baby, sitting and sleeping in a hard armchair next to the bed to react quickly when he had a coughing fit. I was not allowed to use the bathroom in the room. There was only one oxygen unit for the two babies being treated and the younger one, who was just weeks old, had to be given preference,” the angry mother told Island Connections.

CONTAMINATED VACCINES

Flu jabs suspended

The Canarian Department of Health has ordered the recently-commenced flu jab programme to be halted immediately after problems were detected with batches of the vaccine. The authorities issued the order last night after receiving confirmation from Madrid that particles had been detected in the sterile preloaded syringes used to administer the jabs, which are being given to hundreds of thousands of people at present via Health Centres here.

Flatter You

Dressing for yo Y

ou don’t have to wear designer clothes to look and feel great: it’s all about knowing what works for your body and dressing accordingly. Be proud and make a statement with your clothes as one of the biggest mistakes is to hide behind garments that are too big. In an effort to camouflage apparent imperfections you can make yourself look kilos heavier. The most flattering clothing for any body type is when it is tight enough to skim the body and loose enough that it doesn’t gape or pull. Make the most of your body shape: choose clothes that accentuate, flatter and complement and you´ll soon be looking and feeling great all over.

What body type are you? If you tend to carry weight around the midsection you can create a slimmer waste and guide the eye to your best bits. Jeans/m and co Try these straight leg jeans from M&Co to even out an apple figure

Top

Wrap tops give the illusion of a smaller waist, as do front stitching on blouses and anything with a corset-style structure. Deep v-necks, scoop necks, pleating and gathering under the bust all draw the eye down vertically, creating an illusion of length.

Wrap over top/Chesca Wrap tops give the illusion of a smaller waist Credit: Chesca

Bottom

Straight-leg jeans, rather than skinny, will build a sense of proportion with your upper half, as will trousers with wide legs.

All over

Watch out for dresses with detail and angular lines that draw the eye down the body, in at the waist or out at top as these lengthen the body.

Nowhere

Avoid busy details, like pocketing, on your top half, and any top which is blousy and voluminous. Also, stay away from extreme A-line skirts.

Cross dress/Urban outfitters This Urban outfitters’ dress creates a wonderful waist Bold and black/Fifty plus Apple figures can create curves using angles

If what you would like is too create a few curves, it can be easily done with a few choice wardrobe pieces.

Details at the bust such as ruffles, wraps, ribbing and rouching add fullness up top and extra detail adds an extra layer in necessary areas. Sleeveless tops, cap sleeved and halters show off toned arms and belts and jackets, or tops with a nipped waist, will provide a more curvaceous look. Angora bolero/Phase eight Highlight your bust area with a bolero

If you are smaller on top and heavier in the bottom and thigh area you’ll look best by adding a little volume to your upper body and minimising your lower half.

Floral bottom/Simplybe This fabulous dress from Simplybe creates instant hips

Top

High-waisted skirts ending just below the bust and pleated, trumpet, flared hems and a-line skirts are all femininely flattering for you. Boot-cut trousers and jeans and those that have pockets with flaps all give the illusion of a rounder shape.

Scoop-necks, button up blouses and blousy tops that are slightly A-line will all help. Lowslung tunic tops, with the belt worn below your natural waistline, and any top that ends three to five centimetres below the waist will even out top and bottom halves of the body. Detailed tops draw the eye away from the hips, especially those with a feature around the neck line.

All over

Dresses with angled seams or cut on the bias add shape, whilst detailing above or around the waist add femininity and flatter your straight frame.

Nowhere

Avoid tight knit dresses, menswear-inspired styles and straight cuts, as well as tight v-necks which over elongate the body.

Bottom

To slim the rear wear bias-cut skirts; those that flare out a little at the bottom and kneelength A-lines with flared hems. Try boot-cut jeans, low-rise trousers and trousers legs that fall straight down from the widest part of you. Seams that run down the front of the leg create a leaner look and yes, wear darker colours on the bottom half, but be creative: as well as black try chocolate brown, navy blue, charcoal gray and burgundy.

Bias Skirt/Chesca Bias-cut skirts are very flattering on fuller hips

Dresses with an empire waist and an a-line skirt look great on pear shapes, as do ones that naturally come in darker shades on the bottom and very light colours on top.

Nowhere

Coloured sleeves/Laredoute This dress from Laredoute is perfect for pear shapes

Falcon print blouse/Monsoon Combine flowing tops with skinny jeans if you are pear-shaped

Avoid clingy or very full tops; skirts, dresses or tops that fall right at the waist or belts that pull the waist in. Trousers with gathered, pleated and cuffed ankles will only emphasize your bottom, and beware skinny jeans unless worn with a longer top. Avoid attention-grabbing details on the hips and thighs, as well as bulky pockets.

Hi everyone

I

hope you’re all feeling happy and in good health.

Which is more than I can say for my computer. It has for the moment, given up the ghost, and gone for a trip ‘on’t badly bus’. Hopefully, Steve Summers can work some magic and bring it back to life. I’m writing this on my friend’s laptop. Her name is Sylvia and she’s treated me to a lovely meal and copious cups of coffee etc while I’m working. Earlier in the week, another friend and I were talking about Yorkshire and were reminded of the years when our children were in their teens, and the Yorkshire Ripper was on the rampage. It was a very worrying time for those of us with daughters of around 16 and 17 years of age. The worst worry seemed to be over when the tapes of the Geordie voice were publicised. Most of us felt that

or the attention of the Titsa Bus Company and the Tenerifian authorities in general! I have recently returned to Tenerife after a six-month absence. Taking the Titsa bus from the northern airport to Los Cristianos I noticed that the BonoBus fare had increased by over 40 per cent! I then remembered an article that I read during the summer on the Island Connections website stating that the Titsa company would be targeting tourist bus lines to increase their earnings! A few days ago I boarded the 342 bus in the direction of the national park. There is now no possibility of using the BonoBus card on this line... payment is now in cash and at full price, which has been raised considerably. This bus is mainly

as long as our girls never accepted a lift, they would probably be safe. How wrong we all were. Wearside Jack, as he was later known, was evil, and was indirectly the cause of more women losing their lives thanks to his shocking tapes that lead the police on many wild goose chases. His name is John Samuel Humble, and at the time of the hoax tapes, he was 22 years old. He sent three letters purporting to be the Ripper: two to the policeman in charge of the investigation George Oldfield, and the third to the Daily Mirror. To refresh your memory, here is an excerpt from the first cold and shockingly callous letter he wrote.

I am the Ripper. I’ve been dubbed a maniac by the Press but not by you, you call me clever and I am. You and your mates haven’t a clue that photo in the paper gave me fits and that bit about kill-

ing myself, no chance. I’ve got things to do. My purpose to rid the streets of them sluts. My one regret is that young lassie MacDonald… Warn whores to keep off streets cause I feel it coming on again. Sorry about young lassie. Yours respectfully Jack the Ripper The ‘young lassie’ he referred to was the tragic death of 16 year old Jayne MacDonald. This murder shocked the nation anew as it was brutal in the extreme. Before the real Ripper, Sutcliffe, was caught, he murdered three more women. Many people feel that had the hoax tapes not wasted so much police time and resources, then he may have been caught long before he could take these other three lives. It was only when he was finally arrested and confessed to his crimes, that the tapes were found to be a hoax. The identity of Wearside Jack

Aries 21.03. – 20.04. remained a mystery until 2005 when police decided to look again at the case and trapped him with DNA on one of the envelopes. By this time Humble had become an alcoholic loner. He was arrested on 20 October 2005, and charged with four counts of perverting the course of justice. On 21 March 2006, Humble was sentenced to eight years in jail. In July 2006, he launched an appeal against his sentence, which was rejected in October of the same year. He is due for release any time in the near future. I wonder if he will admit that what he did made him culpable? I have the feeling that the only sorrow he feels is that he caught and punished.

Until next time, take care of yourselves, and especially of each other. Email: (if and when my computer is once again working!) katykennedy@telefonica. net

used by tourists wanting to spend the day in the Cãnadas. Not only is this targeting unfair, it is misdirected. The Titsa bus company and the Tenerifian authorities in general seem to think that the tourists and part-time residents of this island are well-equipped to compensate them for their financial mistakes and problems. It is almost as if they think that we have caused these problems and should now be paying for them! The problems that the government and companies of Tenerife are having have been caused by incompetent, and at times corrupt, politicians and managers. This incompetence has created a lethargy and dissatisfaction that has permeated the whole of the Tenerifian society. It can be seen in a poor education system that cannot seem to give their students basic foreign language skills; in a system that instils no self- confidence in the youth and can be reflected in poor service in shops and official entities. A few years ago there was a campaign in the schools called

‘Tenerife amable’ (friendly Tenerife). Signs were written on the buses and authorities went from school to school in order to teach students to be friendly to the visitors that come to their island. Friendliness is not taught, it is felt; a selfconfident person is a friendly person. The authorities and businesses of Tenerife should not feel so sure that tourism here will last forever without several basic changes. The Arab Spring may be helping to increase the number of visitors at the moment, but tourists are discovering new places to visit; perhaps a few hours further away and costing a few Euros more, but with populations that treat them with respect and know the meaning of ‘serviceminded’.

Taurus 21.04. – 20.05. Since yo’ure seeing things clearly, it’s a good time to invest, restructure or cut your losses. Even your romantic prospects are looking up! You’ll be popular and busy.

Gemini 21.05. – 21.06. If you’re looking for romance, you’ll find it by attending an artistic event or concert with a friend.

Cancer 22.06. – 22.07. You may receive a gift or a letter from a secret admirer or hear a secret that brings pleasure. If your partner is dragging their heels, give them a piece of your mind but gently does it.

Leo 23.07. – 23.08. You may be feeling like, ‘there’s no place like home’ and probably wish you had enough money to retire or at least more time to attend to your personal life.

Virgo 24.08. – 23.09. Your cash flow situation needs sorting out. Ostrich tactics will not work, however, what a wonderful time for relationships! If you’re single, you could find several suitors courting you.

Libra 24.09. – 23.10. Inspire others by setting a good example. Everyone will be watching; it’s important that you do all the right things. Your finances look set to improve.

From Steph Tufft after a post on whooping cough outbreak: “I actually asked the doc about vaccinating against it as my mum said it was coming back in the uk but he said they don’t here. Right, that’s him not mixing with anyone now!”

Scorpio 24.10. – 22.11. You have a ton of energy, make sure you direct it towards attaining your goals and desires; it would be a shame to waste it. Avoid overworking yourself.

Sagittarius 23.11. – 21.12. If you’re single, you’ll be attracted to someone extremely seductive. They could be an artist or musician, sensual and well heeled; they might even spend a lot of money on you!

You have carte blanche to be creative and especially create more balance in your relationships; if you have issues with someone this is a good time to clear the air!

Pisces 21.02. – 20.03.

Try and keep clear of bugs and infections; you may get a nasty cold. If you find yourself distressed, just remember that natural remedies work best for you. A retreat or day trip to a nature destination could be very healing now.

Korean designer Seungji Mun wanted to combine pet comfort and security with tidiness and minimalism. Part of the m.pups line of pet furniture, the sofa was created for the many people living in apartments with animal companions. It acts as a space saver, canceling out the need for a separate dog or cat basket, whilst at the same time providing a cosy resting area for your four legged friends, tucked in closely to their favourite person. The cushioned kennel area has enough room for a medium sized dog to fit in easily and comfortably and allows interaction with your pet through the opening. Practical and fun it is sure to be a hit.

Aktion Tier, the charity that owns Accion del Sol, have recently been investigating battery hens. Eggs are stamped with a number from 3 to 0. The 0 means they are organically and humanely produced with 3 being battery caged chickens kept in tiny cages. Many people believe that battery hens are a thing of the past, but unfortunately this is not the case, look at the numbers on the eggs.

The seemingly never ending problem of excrement on town pavements has finally driven one local council to take drastic measures. Officials at Agüimes decided to employ the services of the investigators after growing complaints from local residents. The council recently ran a series of education campaigns aimed at encouraging dog owners to keep the streets and play parks clean, but have had to admit that they were only partly effective: people living in the area report that, far from having reduced the problem, incidences seem to have risen. The majority of dog owners do behave responsibly of course, but it is the selfish minority that the council has decided to now focus on.

The detectives are roaming the streets keeping their eyes out for people who break the law by not clearing up after their dogs. With the aid of photographs and videos they collect evidence regarding the perpetrators’ acts and their home addresses or car registrations, which is then handed into the council.

The dog house sofa is a specially designed settee for cats and dogs to share with people. The attractive streamlined piece of furniture comes with an open kennel-like structure built onto one side, which also doubles as an arm rest.

Microsleep kills

Juke R

Real and Virtual

F

atigue is one of the main causes of serious accidents. Microsleep is the term given to those moments of nodding off, usually due to extreme tiredness, which can be for just a fraction of a second, or up to 30 seconds long. It’s a scary thought, that people can be asleep for half a minute whilst at the wheel, possibly doing very fast speeds indeed. But it happens, and probably more often than the general public realises. Luckily, manufacturers are well aware of how common it is and researchers have long been looking into ways of combating it. It has been noted that severe fatigue can be associated with characteristic steering movements: lowering concentration levels and tiredness compromise the driver’s steering behavior and response time. Fine motor skills deteriorate, steering becomes less precise and the driver corrects small steering mistakes more often. It is this that the Bosch Driver Drowsi-

ness Detection unit counts on. It is based on an algorithm which begins recording the driver’s steering behavior the moment the trip begins. It then recognises changes over the course of long journeys, and thus also the driver’s level of fatigue. Typical signs are phases during which the driver is barely steering, combined with slight, yet quick and abrupt steering movements to keep the car on track.

First introduced as a standard feature in 2010, in the Volkswagen Passat, the system monitors these steering movements by information provided either by the car’s electric power steering system, or by the steering angle sensor, which is part of the ESP® anti-skid system. The feature can therefore be installed costeffectively and helps further increase road safety. When the typical fatigue-induced movements are detect-

ed, the system will advise the driver to take a break by way of a flashing icon, such as a coffee cup, but whether they take notice or not is a different matter. The best safety method, of course, is to avoid driving long distance when you are very tired or, if that isn’t possible, make sure that you have regular breaks where you actually stop the car and get out into the fresh air and stretch your legs.

breath of fresh air will soon be blowing in the open-top car market, created by the new Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet. About to appear on the world market any day now, the car represents the next chapter in a unique automotive story. The original Beetle Convertible (type 15) was first launched in 1949, followed much later by the 2002 model. This new version marks the third generation of the curvaceous Volkswagen soft-top and the car’s unmistakable silhouette now has a sportier and more dynamic look. The new model also incorporates aspects from the modern

Women’s choice

The Honda Civic was recently chosen for an award by the Women’s World Car of the Year committee. The car came out on top in the Economy Car category, with second and third places going to the Volkswagen UP and Ford Fiesta respectively. The Civic was selected from an initial entry list of 300 cars which were nominated by 20 women judges from 11 countries around the world. The judging panel assessed the Civic according to the criteria women consider when buying a car, including safety, value for money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, ease of driving, environmental footprint and child friendliness.

producing 545bhp from its 3.8 litre twin-turbo V6 engine. Thrilling performance is guaranteed, with 0-100 km/ph estimated to take only 3.0 seconds, and with a maximum speed of 273 km/ph. But don’t despair if you can’t afford a designer car: the Juke-R has also been digitally converted for use in the virtual world.

markedly different interior design. Whilst the traditional soft top which, when open, lies very flat, enables good vision to the rear and opens and closes automatically within around 10 seconds, including on the move. To provide added safety in the event of a rollover accident, Volkswagen has developed an active protection system. If the car rolls over, two extendable modules fitted behind the back of the rear bench seat are activated via the central airbag triggering unit. Along with the fixed A-pillars, they provide effective protection for the occupants of all four seats, within a matter of milliseconds. Good work.

The first road-going Juke-R is about to hit the market. Following phenomenal interest, the car made the leap into the real world after first being shown as a oneoff concept in January of this year. After its debut in Dubai it became a YouTube sensation and Nissan could not resist turning it into a limited edition model. Thanks to the expertise of the company’s Technical Centre Europe the production version is more powerful than the concept,

Boxing

By George Reed

THE HEAVYWEIGHT WHO KNOCKED HIMSELF OUT Continued from back page

Welshman Jack Peterson, witnesses claim that he had done most of his warming-up at a pub not far from the arena. Within the opening seconds he knew he was in trouble, so decided to take the easy way out by repeatedly belting Peterson below the belt and getting disqualified. The Boxing Board confiscated Doyle’s fee and suspended him for six months, but his most notorious bout was his encounter with Eddie Phillips at Harringay Arena, London in 1938. Hot favourite to win the contest, Doyle toyed with his opponent in the first round and in the second round decided to end the fight. He flew at Phillips throwing a left swing in the process, missing him completely, and went sailing through the ropes and out of the ring landing on the time-keepers table, smashing the officials watch and scattering the ringside telephones. Dazed, he failed to get back into the ring, and was counted out at the count of 10. Doyle didn’t bother to re-enter the ring, instead he strode to his dressing room with a smile on his face having made history by becoming the first boxer to knock himself out. Later the scandalized Doyle complained that he had been manhandled by friends of Phillips who were at the ringside, but when it was discovered that the Irishman had held the promoter to ransom by refusing to enter the ring unless he was paid an extra £1,000, there was little sympathy for him. However, it was the possibility that anything could happen, and usually did, that brought the crowds to see Doyle fight which made him one of the biggest earners of his time. The one-time toast of London and Hollywood, he was as much at home in the company of royalty as he was in the movie colony, and with film stars such as Clark Gable, Marlon Brando, Errol Flynn and Barbara Stanwyck. In fact the charismatic boxer would marry Judith Allan, a movie starlet and a member of the Mexican Aristocracy although they soon split up, so he married the beautiful Movita, star of the first version of Mutiny on the Bounty. They toured theatres and opera houses worldwide to capacity audiences, then they would also divorce and Movita would marry the legendary Marlon Brando. In between these two marriages Doyle was in the comfortable arms of Delphine Dodge-Goode, the motor-car heiress. In the end Doyle odd-jobbed for a while, but when he was unable to get work and was broke, he was reduced to sleeping in the back of a taxi belonging to a fan. The high earnings he had received for his boxing and singing had all gone, in his own words on “Slow horses and fast women”. Jack Doyle was interviewed by a Journalist shortly before he died in 1978 at the age of 65, who asked him if he had any regrets about not spending his money more wisely. “None at all” said Doyle, “Twas never a generous man went to hell”.

Basketball :

Sporting CB Canarias fans of basketball side Iberostar Canarias may have been annoyed at their team’s poor start to the season but they showed that they appreciate top players, especially from these shores. Despite witnessing a loss to visiting Real Madrid in dramatic fashion (a video replay was needed to establish if a match-winning home score was out of time or not), the 5.000 fans who packed the Santiago Martín stadium in La Laguna gave a rousing reception and farewell to Tenerife-born

Sergio Rodríguez, who joined Real last year after several years in the NBA. With eight assists, Rodríguez was crucial in the final three minutes as his side miraculously overcame a 12-point deficit to steal the match in the dying seconds but he was quickly forgiven by the home supporters, who queued outside for a chance to take a photo and get an autograph of

their ‘local’ idol. Despite the cruel defeat, Canarias head coach Alejandro Martínez insists the team has what it takes to survive in the tough ACB league and has been improving steadily after the disastrous opening. The coming home game against Gran Canaria is a massive one if the Tenerife club is to begin the job of making up lost ground on the sides it is expected to have to fight it out with to avoid relegation.

Cycling:

Teide drugs claim Disgraced cyclist Lance armstrong persuaded colleagues to use his undetectable doping method during altitude training visits to Tenerife, it has been alleged. The revelations have been published by several newspapers which have analysed the more than one thousand pages of testimony offered during the lengthy investigation ordered by the US anti-doping authorities into the practices resorted to by the seven-times winner of the Tour de France. Fellow American Levi Leipheimer admitted to investigators that he was invited

by Armstrong to fly to Tenerife for intensive winter training up Mt Teide and it was during this visit that he was introduced to Armstrong’s doctor, Michele Ferrari, who recommended ways of taking the banned performance-enhancer EPO without being caught. Several other top cyclists have also declared to USADA that they had contact with Ferrari during their stays at the Parador Hotel at the foot of Teide in 2005, although the claims are vehemently denied by the controversial doctor. Armstrong has been stripped of his Tour de France titles by cycling’s world governing body.

The 90 km race from the coast up to Mt Teide was halted by consensus after the runner, a 42-year-old Civil Guard officer who was taking part in a less demanding category, collapsed and died in the hills near La Orotava. The organisers hastily cancelled the programme of activities at the finish line in Pinolere and dispatched transport to pick up participants who had still to complete their run. Some runners criticised the decision, arguing that the best tribute to the dead officer was to continue with the event. It emerged later that other runners fought frantically to save the man’s life while another colleague continued to run in search of help, which could not be summoned initially due to the poor mobile phone signal at the spot. The incident has also led to calls for stringent health checks for participants.

Forced

retirement? Tenerife’s most famous athlete says he is seriously considering retiring due to the difficulties he is encountering in his attempts to obtain funding to continue training and competing. Discus thrower Mario Pestano, a veteran of world championships and Olympic Games, as well as the current Spanish athletics team captain, said on Twitter that he may be forced to retire due to the bleak situation. “With no club and no funding, I may have to take the very difficult decision to give up competing. Sad.” admitted the 34-year-old athlete from Arico. His Twitter post soon made the main sports papers in Spain and received extensive coverage here on his home island.

Probably one of the biggest stars from the past that has played in our event ‘Donato’, an ex Athletico Madrid, Deportivo La Coruna and also a former Spanish International, was surprised by the quality of the social teams. He had a great time playing along side ex Sunderland and Rangers star Alex Rae and Alex was also very surprised at how well the local Soccer Experience weekly league teams played. Last year the Club Olympus all star select team led by ex Celtic & Scotland player Darren Jackson, ex Aston Villa player Tommy Johnson and Irish League legend Alan Byrne along with ex top Star player and now Sky TV star Chris Kamara will be hoping to do better than last year as they only got to the semi’s. The ex pro teams will have to play well and use their vast experience as they are not the favorites to win the tournament! Previous winners Glasgow Bhoys, also Otch’s Liverpool Victoria will fancy their chances and also a local team who surpassed all expectations was Toby Jug from our local Soccer Experience league, they played as Silverpoint Vacations in the tournament.

While Scott and Martin of Soccer Experience were at the Hong Kong soccer 7s earlier this year together they discussed bringing the kids of the London players and from this we have arranged a four team mini youth tournament including the kids on Scott’s team from London and also local Tenerife kids of the players in the tournament. This will add a bit of noise and fun to the event and the ex pros will get involved by offering coaching tips to the future Mini Messi’s! Special note for any footballers out there over 35s years old who would like to play against some ex pros?…some of the social travelling teams have asked for one or two more players so if you would like to play with some new friends please contact us asap if you fancy turning back the clock to your school playground days!! Another extra special note and treat is that Amanda’s Dance school from Callajo will be performing a wonderful cheer leader and dance routine at the tournament ovet the weekend. Soccer Experience would like to say a special thanks to John Fawcett, Dean Locke and Martin Cooke and their Royale Asia International Company for their great ongoing support and friendship and to our great friend and supporter Ivan Rhodes and all the gang at Club Olympus along with the many other people involved in the tournament and because of everyone pulling together it truly is a very enjoyable fiesta of football for all! More information and photos will be posted soon on the website: www.soccerexperience.com

The blanquiazules stretched their unbeaten run with a hard fought 0-0 draw in the town of Guijelo, just south of Salamanca. This was Tenerife´s third draw of the season so far and it kept them in charge at the top of the Spanish 2nd B. Manager Álvaro Cervera fielded the same starting line-up that had thrashed Atletico B the week before but they found their first ever match against CD Guijelo tricky on the artificial surface. The home side felt hard done by when a second half goal was disallowed but soon after on 70 minutes CD Tenerife were down to 10 men as Llorente saw red after two bookings. Overall the draw was a fair reflection on the 90 minutes of play.

CD Tenerife 1 Real Avilés 0 This was the game of the week in the Spanish 2nd division B between the top two clubs in the league.

Avilés have been the ‘revelation’ team of the season but perhaps it should not be too much of a surprise as they enjoy a €1 million budget, far more than most at this level. A crowd of 9,200 braved the inclement weather to witness another fine victory for the blanquiazules. TV Canaria broadcast the match live and attracted an audience of 90,000 which shows the level of interest this new team has generated. He is a big fan of Tenerife and good friend of player Luismi Loro. The main change to the team was the re-

placement of suspended leftback Llorente by Jesus Alvaro who was to be the architect of the blanquiazules winning goal. With half-time looming Jesus broke down the left flank, leaving two players in his tracks before crossing the ball into the path of Aridane who flicked the ball into the goal. As the heavens opened in the second half Avilés were awarded a very soft penalty but justice was done when Sergio Aragoneses pulled off a superb double save. Next home game November 4 v Getafe B.

CD MARINO:

First victory

UD Salamanca 5:0 CD Marino

CD Marino 4:0 Álcala A stupendous match brought CD Marino their first victory as they scored four goals against Alcalá. Even though the visitors had various opportunities to score, this time Willy Barroso’s team played a tight game and never missed a trick. Marino’s determination in this match was obvious and Carlos y Álvaro, with the support of Biendi from the left, went time and again on the attack. The first goal, a joint effort by Noah and Juancho, seemed to shake Álcala’s confidence and was soon followed by a nifty move by Noah, after a corner from Maikel, ending the first half of

the game at 2-0. Only a few minutes into the second half Sandro took control of the ball and there was no stopping him. One of Noah’s famous headers brought the final score to 4:0 and a long awaited conquest for the local team.

The match against the recently unbeaten Salamanca was enough to knock Marino’s confidence once again. UD Salamanca trashed Marino in every respect, with the Tenerife team seemingly playing without direction. By half time they were already three goals down, which were swiftly added to by the home team. Let’s hope that they can get back on form again.

hen I was a little tot, I recall to this day the stories my dad used to tell me about boxers, and the stories about one fighter are stuck in my mind, for he had something in common with him; they were both boxers, and tenor-voiced singers. Most readers have probably never heard of the boxer in question, for he never won a world title belt and it was many moons ago, but back in the 1930’s all the talk in Ireland, and in many places around the world. was about Jack Doyle, known as ‘The Gorgeous Gael’, who was making headlines and not only inside the ring. He was born in 1913 in Queenstown (Cobh) in County Cork. In 1929 he joined the Irish Guards and quickly excelled at boxing. He stood at 6ft-3in and was famed for his strong hooks that won him the British Army Heavyweight Championship. He had a sensational record of 28 straight wins, 27 by KO, as an amateur and on turning professional he soon ran up 10 victories on the trot inside the first two rounds, which made him the hottest thing in boxing at the time. The handsome Irishman was charming and erratic and a terrific puncher but he didn’t enjoy the training and enjoyed a ‘tipple’, and when at the age of 19 he got a shot at the British heavyweight title against the Continued on page 54

on’t miss the Tamaimo Uphill rally which will take place on the weekend of November 10 and 11.

This is one of the most popular dates in Tenerife’s sporting calendar and draws thousands of spectators from all over the Islands, the majority of whom camp alongside the road for the duration of the two-day event. In recognition of the importance of the rally, two excit-

ing developments have taken place this year. The first of these is that it now forms part of the Spanish Mountain Rally Championship and the second is that participants will be competing for the first ever Tenerife Island Council Trophy. On the first day of the trial there will be two training runs followed by the first of the actual races, the last two of which will take place the following day. The passion for this thirty-

eighth Tamaimo uphill event was reflected in the winning poster design by Diego Trujillo Hernández. Speed, racing lines and safety were the inspiration for his work, and safety is an issue that is high on the agenda this year with organisers asking all spectators to follow the regulations to the letter to avoid accidents. Two of the eight races that count towards the Spanish Uphill Rally Championship will now take place on the

island, the second of these being the Arona to La Escalona rally on November 18. This is the first time in a while that Canary Island rallies have been included in the uphill championship so November is an important month for rally fans and drivers all round.
