British Consulate

Merger man

F

or the second time in just under six years, the arrival of Steve Jones in the Canaries has signified major changes in the British Consulates here. His return ushers in a merger, with the post of Consul in the Canaries now combined with Jones’ existing post as Consul for Andalusia, based in Malaga. The restructuring by the British Embassy in Madrid, and the manner in which it has been implemented, have not been received well here, nor in the Balearics where the post of Island based Consul has also disappeared. Within hours of Steve’s official appointment, the Embassy contacted Island Connections - the first publication in Spain to disclose details of the impending changes- offering the chance to speak with him about the controversial decision.

Murder trial

Irish couple court case By Karl McLaughlin

O

nce again, Tenerife holds a murder trial involving foreign defendants. Irishman Keith Burke, 21, was in the dock accused of murdering a local ferry company employee, Abraham Báez, during a vicious fight in Playa de Las Américas on April 30, 2010. According to the prosecution, Burke stabbed Báez in the left side of the neck, severing an artery and killing him almost instantly. His girlfriend, Sara Stuart, 30, was also accused of wounding a young Tenerife woman, Laura Negrín, who was with Báez. The court in Santa Cruz heard that the fight was triggered by an apparently

petty confrontation when the Tenerife pair inadvertently struck the passing Irish couple as they opened the door of their parked car. Burke and Stuart, who had been in Tenerife for several weeks looking for work, admitted they had been ‘drinking very heavily’ the night

of the incident and were on their way home to the Caribe complex when the incident took place. In his opening statement to the jury, Burke retracted confessions made earlier to police and insisted he had been coerced into admitting to killing Báez. ‘They hit me with

batons and refused me water while I was in the station. I was told I would get four years at most if I confessed and Sara would be set free.’ Relatives and friends of the victim’s family donned Tshirts with Báez’s face and hung a banner outside the courtroom calling for justice for the 24-year-old. They were ordered by the judge to remain silent when they reacted angrily to Burke’s version that he had ‘acted in self-defence’ after being subjected to an ‘unprovoked attack by Báez’. Burke also admitted to carrying a knife on the night in question because ‘Las Américas was not safe’. However, he swore it had ‘not left his pocket at any time’. In addition to his confession to police, Burke had also said, in letters to Stuart while both were on remand, that he ‘deserved to be jailed’ for killing Báez. However, in court he said he had written the comments to exonerate his then girlfriend because he feared she might commit suicide in prison. ‘I was an 18 year old in love and wanted to get her out’ he told the jury. The trial continued as Island Connections went to press.

enerife police could be forgiven for thinking that all their efforts to capture international criminals are not always worthwhile, despite some notable successes in recent years. The release of Croatian general Ante Gotovina following the controversial overturning of his conviction for war crimes is seen as a major blow to officers here who devoted considerable time and effort to tracking him and then coordinating his arrest while he was having dinner in a well-known hotel in Playa de Las Américas almost exactly seven years ago. The arrest, which was made by an officer posing as a waiter, and Gotovina’s subsequent extradition to The Hague to stand trial made world headlines and police here were known to be thrilled when the Croatian was handed a 24-year sentence for

his crimes. However, in a surprising decision the sentence has been annulled on appeal and Gotovina has returned to his home country to a hero’s

welcome, leaving police here scratching their heads at the outcome of their efforts to locate him in Tenerife when he was on the run from the

authorities. They will not have been amused either by local headlines stating that “Gotovina can now finish his dinner”.

Recklessness bill

First rescue charge

A holidaymaker who had to be rescued a mile out to sea off Fuerteventura last summer is to be the first person charged for the mobilisation of emergency services under the new liability scheme introduced by the Canarian government. According to the Diario de Avisos newspaper, several cases of apparent negligence or recklessness leading to emergency call-outs are being reviewed by the authorities with a view to recovering the cost of the services provided. It was

Jobless

Strike puzzle The General Strike on 14 November threw up a bizarre turn-out paradox which was not lost on local media. Despite being the region with the second highest jobless rate in the country, after Andalusia, support in the Canaries for the day of action – which trade unions said was crucial to persuade the government to reverse its continuing cutbacks and create jobs instead –was

originally believed that the charges, which are now possible under a recent law, would not take effect until January 2013 but sources consulted by the paper have confirmed that the foreign tourist, who floated out to sea off Pájara with his six-year-old daughter on 7 July and could not make it back to the shore, is likely to have to pay approximately €1,000 for the deployment of a boat and an ambulance for their rescue, which took almost three hours. Critics of the new legislation say it should apply also to road and other accidents involving recklessness, not just incidents involving hikers, swimmers and surfers.

among the lowest in Spain. Although the actual level of turn-out was again the source of major argument between the unions and the authorities, even the ‘official’ (and arguably highly optimistic) figure from the former (68 per cent) indicated that support was lower only in the Basque Country and was well below the more than 80 per cent recorded in regions such as Madrid, Cantabria and Andalusia. Sociologists have already begun the job of analysing the apparently inexplicable paradox but have yet to come up with a conclusive explanation.

ExclusiveInterview

W

British Consul

e had several testing questions to put to Steve Jones, which are reflected below together with his responses. Your reactions to the Madrid Embassy’s decision to chop the resident based Consul role in the Canaries are important and would be very welcome.

Steve Jones on record

Of the various hats you now wear, which will be your official title? Consul for Andalusia and also Consul for the Canary Islands, with different business cards to reflect those different roles. It is not a case of one position (Canar y Islands) being run from another (Malaga). How long before the official announcement on November 20 did you know about your new combined role? Although I received word in mid-October, nothing official could be announced because approval had to be sought from the Spanish Foreign Ministry. The proper channels had to be followed for accreditation. The Embassy has described the Malaga Consulate as a very busy one. You also oversee the Consular Contact Centre for Southern Europe. Is this additional role in the Canaries not too much on an already full plate? I don’t think my plate is full. Businesses constantly look at the capacities and responsibilities of their senior managers and add to them or reduce them as appropriate. London

By Karl McLaughlin

Consulate better or worse off than its counterparts in Turkey or Greece? has been re-examining what Consuls actually do and looking at ways of using resources more effectively. This new role is not adding to my plate, in that sense. I do virtually no direct consular assistance in Malaga anyway, since I focus more on strategic and communications/ information aspects. Customer service appears to be a constant focus for you since joining the ranks of diplomacy. How does having a nonresident Consul contribute to service? How can it bring greater efficiency and, indeed, visibility to the work of the Consulate in the Canaries? I think it is best to view it as a different way of doing things. One of the first decisions taken has been to recruit an additional full-time person for Tenerife. The current Vice-Consul, Helen Keating, will take on extra responsibilities in certain areas. Customer service will not be affected.

If the Consulate in Tenerife is to get a new member of staff and you will be making regular trips from Malaga, and will need accommodation, where is the saving being made compared to the salary of the previous full-time Consul? This is not about making savings. The most important aspect of our work is to ensure the right people are in the right place and doing the right work. It is more important to have more people in the front line. A new post (casework officer, not assistant) is being created for Tenerife and extra recruitment is under way for Malaga too. The process has been all about looking to see what we can do best to provide the service. How does the new situation in the Canaries compare to the situation of Consulates in other parts of Europe that are very popular with British tourists and ex-pats. Is the

There is no need to look to Europe for the comparison. Malaga is one of the three busiest consular assistance posts anywhere in the world. There are 350,000 British residents in Andalusia, plus around three million tourists. The Consulate covers an area the size of Portugal and is staffed by seven people. The Canaries have eight staff. It is difficult to compare with other countries because here in Spain there is an excellent support network of highlyorganised community groups to draw on (e.g. Royal British Legion, Cancer Research), which is not necessarily the case elsewhere. There has been considerable speculation of late, caused largely by the Embassy’s failure to clarify the issues properly since Island Connections first published details of the impending changes. What feedback have you received now that the changes are out in the open?

There has been some positive reaction but, admittedly, the feedback has been somewhat more negative. Because of what has been written and said, I felt it was part of my job, as soon as my new role was confirmed, to contact our stakeholders and partners and talk to them about the situation. There has been the mistaken perception here that the Consulate is closing so I have made a point of making myself available to set the record straight quickly, as I am doing with you. The Alicante Consulate was an obvious choice to ‘go’ in any merger but appears to have emerged unscathed in the restructuring. The comparison is relevant in another sense also. Its opening hours are Mon-Friday 8.30 -13.30, whereas the opening times of the offices here were cut by 60 per cent recently and the popular ‘surgery’ in south Tenerife no longer exists. Surely there is something wrong with this. Do you plan to make changes? It was not a question of just looking to see who was nearest for a merger. Alicante has not escaped ‘unscathed’, as you put

it. The Consul there has been given extra responsibilities in terms of identifying best practices and other strategic issues which will benefit the work of all the Consulates. I am not going to commit to promising anything on changing the opening hours at this stage. These things are never definitive and are always subject to review to see how they have affected British nationals. Once I get to the Canaries, I intend to have a fresh look at everything in order to be absolutely happy at what we are doing.

Like it or not, the streamlining is perceived as a snub to Spain’s two island regions (Balearics and Canaries), not only to their very large numbers of British tourists and residents but the local authorities also. What do you say to that? One of the first things I will do on getting to the Canaries will be to organise calls and visits to reassure the local authorities that this is not the case. Clearly, I will not ignore what people from various sectors think but any decisions taken must be in line with our strategic goals. Let me stress once again that we have a brilliant team in the Canaries, which is perfectly equipped to provide the best possible suppor t to British nationals in the islands.

he small island of Juist is one of the seven inhabited East Frisian Islands, lying at the edge of the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea, which, for those of us with a sketchy grasp of German geography, is in the southern North Sea. Nestled between Borkum Island to the west, Memmert Island to the southwest and Nordeney to the east (surprise!), Juist is in the Aurich district of Lower Saxony. The small island of La Gomera is also one of seven inhabited islands, situated considerably further south in the Atlantic off the west coast of Africa. Juist is seventeen kilometres long, with its width depending pretty much on the time of day. At high tide it is five hundred metres wide, whilst low tide reveals a whole kilometre of low-lying landscape. The island boasts two villages: the main village of Juist and its neighbour, Loog. Visitors wishing to arrive by ferry have just one opportunity daily, as they must travel at high tide on a crossing that takes ninety minutes, whilst air travellers can fly into the island’s small airport, weather permitting. Once on Juist, the chances of being bothered by traffic are very slim indeed. Only the fire department, the Red Cross and doctors have vehicles. The police use bikes. The post office and ship-

Fernando Méndez (front right) with German officials

La Gomera

Twins ping companies boast an electric car each, whilst the Coast Guard has a tractor which needs a special licence each time it goes through town. Everybody else, be they the island’s one thousand eight hundred inhabitants or visitors, walks or uses bikes and horse-drawn carriages to get around. La Gomera is, in comparison, busier - but not much. Although there are cars aplenty, driving across the island can be a solitary experience unless you happen to coincide with the flurry of activity that accompanies the arrival or departure of ferries from Los Cristianos. The winding roads are empty at other times. The island also

has a small airport. Tourism is what drives Juist’s economy, with several hotels, a youth hostel and guest rooms providing accommodation for those in search of peace and clean air. A hundred thousand visitors stayed on Juist last year, attracted by the island’s natural beauty and minimal carbon footprint. Tourism is La Gomera’s main earner too and the tourists who visit it are similar to Juist’s, in that they are in search of peace, quiet, natural beauty and unsullied surroundings. Neither destination is high on the wish list of the drink-and-dance-all-night brigade. Fernando Méndez, La

Gomera’s Tourism, Commerce and Industry councillor, has just come back from a visit to Juist, where he explored the island’s delights and met local authorities for “a preliminary exchange of ideas and experience”. Areas discussed included reducing energy consumption; waste reduction and treatment; CO2 monitoring; awareness programmes for islanders and tourists; natural environment protection; funding for initiatives and sponsorship schemes; marketing and action plans encouraging an exchange of tourists and, importantly, strategies for seeking joint funding from the European Union and “other European bodies”. His mission was to launch a project which will lead to the twinning of the islands of La Gomera and Juist and promote sustainable tourism for both. No slouch when it comes to innovative ideas for promoting La Gomera abroad, Fernando’s sub-agenda is to spread the word about the delights of La Gomera to Juist’s green tourists, once “an advance is made in implanting and developing a model for sustainable tourism”, on his island. “Juist’s visitors demand a form of tourism that brings them into direct contact with nature. It’s obvious that visitors to La Gomera increasingly look for the same experience. We’ve made a start, but we have a long way to go compared with Juist and can learn a lot from

them. We need to perfect our sustainability from the environmental point of view”, says Fernando. Indeed. Especially when various objectives of the project are particularly pertinent in the present, crisis-blighted climate. The twinning will ensure that Juist’s tourists hear about the attractions of La Gomera. In short, it means that summer destination Juist will help to sell winter destination La Gomera and vice-versa, and that the islands will join forces in the all important search for funding. Where better to promote a green, environmentally righton destination than prosperous central and northern Europe? High levels of awareness about environmental issues are the norm, and sustainability the catchword. “Germany, Austria, Holland, Sweden, Norway and Finland are attractive markets”, affirms our man. In comparison to the rest of Europe, they are having a high old time of it, with Scan-

dinavia in a particularly buoyant state. Those long, cold winters are icily beautiful, but northerners suffer higher incidences of depression and suicide than their southern cousins. Winter daylight is scarce. Continued lack of light stimulation to the pineal gland leads to depression, with winter blues not unknown on the island of Great Britain. Our Scandinavian, and northern friends in general, need a shot of welldeserved warmth and sun to break winter’s cold grip. If Fernando Méndez is successful and the twinning comes off as planned, Juist’s summer visitors may come here for a winter break. Flight prices, given soaring fuel costs, are unlikely to drop, but northerners enjoy higher salaries and have more disposable cash for winter breaks. Juist’s authorities will come to La Gomera “in a few months” to finalize and sign the official twinning pact, hopefully inducing the Cabildo to move on sustainability.

Oil boss criticism

Hidden political interests

The head of the Repsol oil company has broken his silence on the bitter controversy over opposition to exploratory drilling in waters off the Canaries. Antonio Brufau said he suspected that “hidden political interests” lay behind the position of the Canarian government, which is adamant that no drilling will take place even though Repsol has been granted permission already by Spain. “The Gulf of Mexico has had hundreds of oil platforms for years and only one accident, which the oil company concerned is paying for in full. On the west coast of Africa new drilling sites are opening almost every day with no problems. Yet, in the Canaries, where hydro-

carbons are in short supply, there is a belief that things that have gone well elsewhere will inevitably go wrong,” complained Brufau in an interview in El País. The Repsol boss added that it would be better for the Canaries if, instead of scores of oil unknown tankers passing through the region’s waters, a reliable company such as his own were allowed to operate in the area to supply the islands with oil.

The recent strong winds brought many problems around the archipelago.

Media monitoring

Budge cuts immunity D

Rivero’s media monitoring is receiving criticism

espite massive cuts almost everywhere, the Canarian government has awarded a juicy contract to a company to monitor and keep it informed of the news coverage received by its various departments in regional papers and other media. The company, which is run by local journalist and digital media consultant Enrique Gutiérrez, was the only bidder for the tender advertised back in August and has now been awarded the full contract, worth

€154,000. News of the award has generated considerable perplexity in certain quarters,

par ticularly sectors whose budgets have been slashed for the coming year. Previously

each government department was free to hire its own media impact monitoring ser vice but everything has now been placed under one roof. The formal notice announcing the contract award was made in the region’s Official Journal recently. Particular criticism has been made of the chore of following all media mentions of the regional president Paulino Rivero, which is something his secretaries should be doing according to some.

Green tariff

T

he Canaries’ newlyannounced Budget for 2013 contained few surprises in fiscal terms, although one or two measures in the pipeline can be expected to lead to price increases in certain cases.

Bottle tax

The package of measures includes a new tax, to be introduced next year, on non-returnable drinks containers, which the regional government says is designed to contribute to the costs of disposal and heighten

awareness of the need for recycling. The tax, the full details of which have still to be made public, will generate an estimated €35 million for the Treasury here and is similar to the one announced

by the Balearic Government at the beginning of the month as part of its “green drive”. Back in June the Canarian government controversially introduced a green tax on out of town shopping malls to offset the environmental impact they cause.

Extradition

Crossed wires

J

ust weeks after the arrest and extradition from here of a Czech man for the abduction of his son from the United States, a similar case has made the headlines, this time involving a Canarian woman. Minerva Marrero, from Gran Canaria, was extradited to Germany to face charges of taking her son out of the country without permission. On arrival, she spent her first night in police cells in Munich while her family here tried to negotiate a solution to what looks certain to be a complicated case. Minerva was detained in Gran Canaria in early November on a European arrest warrant and was held in prison in Las Palmas while

the arrangements were made for her return to Germany. Her family say she was poorly advised by her German lawyer, who told her she could leave

the country with her four year old son, even though custody of the boy was being disputed by her estranged husband, who has dual German-Spanish na-

tionality. The youngster arrived back in Munich on October 15 after a court order was issued and Minerva believed, again on the advice of the lawyer, that she could remain in the Canaries until the bitter battle was resolved. She alleges that she suffered physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her former husband but did not file a formal complaint out of fear and instead opted to flee Germany with her son in July. She has been conditionally released for the time being, but has to stay in Munich until the trial. Her family here have asked the Spanish authorities to intervene in the case to have her released and allowed to fly back to the Canaries.

A variety of activities will take place between now and January 6 which are sure to put you and your family in the festive mood. From noon to midnight visitors will have the chance to see various shows on ice, visit the arts and crafts or gastronomy markets or sit back and relax in one of the convivial cafés while their children are enter tained with Christmas fun. Santa Claus will also be there between 6pm and 8pm every day. The varied programme even includes several discos, games and

tasting sessions and the ice rink will be open to the public during times when there isn’t a show. The market is a wonderful mix of all the European Christmas themes and monies raised during the event will be donated to several different charities. The idea for the market originally came from Tom and Tobias Greb from Germany. The owners of the Facecook restaurant, have invested €500.000 in the project in their aim to bring this tradition of Christmas to Maspalomas.

opes of a breakthrough in the case of missing Gran Canaria boy Yeremi Vargas proved unfounded when a man taken in for questioning in connection with his disappearance was released without charge.

Web wonder

The man, who is from Yeremi’s home town of Vecindario and is believed to have a record of child sex abuse, was detained after a trusted police informant reported that the suspect had been bragging that he knew what had happened to the youngster, who has been missing since May 2007. However he was released after appearing before a local judge in San Bartolomé de Tirajana, who questioned him for 90 minutes and decided there were no grounds to hold him further. The island’s Civil Guard says it continues to explore every avenue in the Yeremi case, more than five years after the mysterious disappearance. A fresh appeal a few months ago for information prompted a number of calls from the public but no firm leads, according to the authorities.

In just one month alone Las Palmas issued over 7,400 residency certificates via its new web based service. The certificate, which is now obligatory for all passengers if they wish to benefit from resident discounts on travel, can be obtained free of charge by visiting: www.laspalmasgc.es.

ing by Tenerife motorists. Rather it is a direct consequence of an unofficial work to rule instituted by officers over cuts to their pay as a result of the austerity measures imposed to tackle the public spending crisis. The drop in fines is almost 20 percentage points higher in Tenerife than in Alicante, which comes second in the table showing the repercussions of the unexpected leniency. The alarming change has already led to an internal memorandum from the Civil Guard’s most senior Traffic officer, warning “culprits” that their productivity bonus is at risk if the situation does not change.

otorists are benefiting in Tenerife more than anywhere else in the country from a more benevolent approach by Traffic Branch officers, according to recently-published figures for fines dished out for driving offences.

Strike threat

Hospital laundries Tenerife’s two big public hospitals face the prospect of more disruption due to industrial action, this time by their laundry services. Around 120 workers have served notice that they will strike on December 3, 4 and 5 unless the recently-announced plans to privatise the laundries

are scrapped. A three-day stoppage, even if only partial for a few hours each day, would bring chaos to the hospitals, which have many foreign patients, and the authorities are already examining ways to mitigate the impact of no clean bed linen or pyjamas, as well as the uniforms of approximately 8,000 staff.

Political gaffe

MP slurs youngsters Veteran politician José Miguel González has triggered condemnation here with blunt criticism of what he says is the pure laziness of young people today. MP González, who has held an assortment of ministerial posts in the Canarian government - including finance minister in the 1990s - and is a former La Laguna councillor, says he is concerned that today’s young generation appears not to know what the terms sacrifice and hard work mean. The comments, in an extensive interview in a Tenerife paper in which he looked back on his long career and described the achievements of his three children, all of whom live and work out-

side the Canaries, brought a flood of comments from readers, who accused the 78-year-old of being a “professional politician” his entire life and never having to apply for a job. “Even though we study hard at university, people like you who do not retire at 65, preferring to cling to public office, block our progress in life” said one angry contributor to a web debate on the remarks.

University intake falls

Fees hike

The effect of higher fees on student numbers at La Laguna University is already being felt. Figures for the current academic year show that the university now has a total of 21,440 enrolled students, more than one thousand fewer than last year (-4.7 per cent) and vice-chancellor Eduardo Domenech attributes the

drop to the extra cost of studying, following the July fee increase of between 40-60 per cent depending on the degree course taken. Domenech added that he doubted that the opening of the new private university in La Orotava this year was having an effect on intake given its low numbers (less than a hundred).

A

n ambitious Guía de Isora project is proving that renewable energy combined with organic growing could go some way towards saving the island’s struggling agricultural sector.

Alex Kelsey with team member Marino Santos Medina

In these difficult times it is good to know there are still a few companies that are willing to put aside immediate profit in the name of benefiting the community as a whole, and Grenergy, with its GreenPVhouse experiment, is one of these businesses. According to the Cabildo 47 per cent of Tenerife’s agricultural land is currently lying empty and unused. Thus, the company’s pilot project, headed by environmentalist Alex Kelsey, aims to demonstrate the benefits of using solar panelling installed on greenhouse roofs, combined with organic agriculture, to produce foodstuffs for local markets and help revive the failing farming sector. Recent changes in the Spanish energy law have placed a moratorium on all renewable energies. Yet Grenergy is striving forward with its project, anticipating that amendments currently being considered, with specific reference to the Canary Islands, will acknowledge the high cost, both financially and environmentally, of generating electricity with fossil fuels, and the opportunity to harness the vast resources of sun and wind that characterise the islands.

Grenergy

Clean energy, healthy crops Solar panelling with organic production is a seemingly magical combination that could be the answer, not only to many a struggling farmers prayer, but also to the growing concern over the long term damage which is being wrought by the use of toxic chemicals. The photo voltaic panels generate clean energy which can, under the new energy

law, be then sold to the grid, generating an auxiliary income to any produce grown. If the local market is then targeted, rather than concentrating on exportation, not only are transport costs for the business reduced, but there are also environmental benefits as well: chiefly the reduction of emissions. Some have questioned the viability of placing photovol-

taic panels on the top of the greenhouses as, surely, cutting down the amount of sun which reaches the plants will reduce the total harvest. This is the belief of not only lay people, but also a large number of those in the highest government echelons who have been sceptical of the possibilities whilst also being seemingly uninterested in putting such an important matter to the

test. However, willing to put its time and money where its beliefs are, Grenergy Renovables SL, based in Madrid, has at the company’s own expense taken 3,000m2 of an existing commercial farm to run a long-term agricultural experiment. The land on which they are experimenting has been split into three different areas so that results can be com-

pared, not only to each other but also to traditional growing methods. Zone A is a new and modern greenhouse, 50 per cent of which has roof shading which mimics the action of photovoltaic coverage. Zone C is the typical Canarian mesh cloth greenhouse which acts as a control for the experiment. This is the traditional way that farming has been undertaken for many years on the islands. Zone B is an adaptation of the mesh cloth greenhouse, but with 25 per cent shading. Apart from these obvious differences, each of the crops grown in the three areas were treated in exactly the same way for the first eight months of the trial. The project began in June 2011 when two varieties of organic salad tomatoes were planted in each zone. Right from the very beginning data was carefully gathered to measure and contrast production in each area. The results were unequivocal: Zone A, with the 50 per cent covering, produced nearly double the quantity of tomatoes per square metre, as compared with the results obtained by farmers using the standard Canarian greenhouses all over the islands. This result way exceeded expectations and shows that shading of direct sunlight can achieve viable quantities of organic produce, which is an amazing result on various levels. Continued on page 14

country. This is the main conclusion of the study, Black spots: traffic accidents in Spanish capitals, carried out by Línea Directa Aseguradora in which more than 1.2 million motor vehicle accidents in provincial capital cities in the last six

years were analysed. The main aim of the report, which has attracted a great deal of media attention, is to analyse a phenomenon causing 18 per cent more fatal accidents than on interurban roads. To this end, the areas of the Spanish capital cities in which Línea Directa has registered the highest number of accidents, have been identified, which has made it possible to create, for the first time, a map of accident black spots, i.e. those streets and roads on which over 100 accidents a year have been recorded. According to the list of black spots, Barcelona, Madrid and Seville head the Top 15 of provincial capitals. Madrid also has three of the five most dangerous areas in the whole country.

Stylish bargain L

overs of quality jewellery were in for a treat recently when Tenerife Pearl celebrated their 16th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion lucky shoppers were invited to snap up top class jewellery with an incredible 50 per cent off and people were not shy in coming forward. The offer was on for

only one weekend, with the store in the south opening their doors on the Saturday and then lucky people in the north being able to grab the chance at either of the shops in Candelaria or Puerto de la Cruz the following day. Crowds of expectant bargain hunters were wait-

ing for the doors to open at the Armeñime store to take advantage of the incredible deal and the atmosphere was electric. At the appointed time visitors quite literally rushed into the store, which was quickly filled with happy shoppers carefully selecting their

cultured pearls that come in an endless variety of shapes, sizes and colours. No wonder really that there was so much excitement as Tenerife Pearl’s jewellery ranges from classic and timeless models to the latest and most innovative trends – always a good investment at any time, but at half price it was a dream come true.

Bonds – An Investment Opportunity?

By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

A

rguably, the most important aspect of portfolio planning is your asset allocation – how much of your investment capital is allocated to equities, to bonds, to property, to cash etc. Before you buy or sell investments you need to have established the most appropriate asset allocation for your personal circumstances and objectives. Bonds play an integral part in many investment portfolios, and could prove very beneficial for you. As a diversification measure they can help reduce overall risk, and, importantly for many people, they also provide a regular income. Bonds also have the potential to generate

capital growth over the longer-term. Bonds are an asset class known as fixed interest securities. With the way bonds work, the rate of interest they pay holds up even when capital values fall. They generate a natural income, so you can receive regular income without having to touch your capital. Asset allocation can account for around 80 to 90 per cent of portfolio performance according to academics. To establish how much capital to allocate to bonds you should seek professional advice from an experienced wealth manager such as Blevins Franks. Corporate bonds are a major source of capital and financing for many companies. The issuers are grouped by credit rating. Those which have a lower, ‘non-investment grade’

rating are known as ‘high yield bonds’ since they typically pay a higher rate of interest and can be a very attractive investment opportunity. High yield bonds can be categorised into two categories – ‘fallen angels’ and ‘rising stars’. Rising stars are relatively new companies which do not yet have the history, or track record, of paying back debt to be classified as investment grade. Fallen angels were once investment grade but have been downgraded because their financial strength is not as strong as what it previously was, therefore affecting their credit worthiness. An article in the Financial Times on 28th September highlighted how the difficult corporate environment in the

Euro crisis and subsequent rating downgrades is resulting in an unprecedented number of companies becoming fallen angels. This could prove very beneficial for the European high yield market, since it would inject new money and liquidity and create fresh market opportunities for fund managers.

This therefore actually provides an opportunity for investors. The European high yield bond market has been one of the star performers of 2012, with the major index posting strong double digit returns year to date to the beginning of October, in both Euro and Sterling terms.

13

Bonds are best bought through a professionally managed fund, which invests in a wide range of bonds. These views are put forward for consideration purposes only as the suitability of any investment is dependent on your objectives, time horizon and attitude to risk. The value of investments and the income arising from them can fall as well as rise. Past performance should not be seen as an indication of future performance.

Continued from page 10 collective circumstances.

First of all, the realisation that reducing sunlight actually has the opposite effect to that which the majority of people would expect: but when one sits down to think about it, it actually makes sense. Anyone who casts their mind back over this summer will realise the debilitating effect that intense and prolonged heat has on all beings, let alone delicate vegetation. Any home gardener will testify to how their plants have suffered this summer and how, no matter how much they have been watered, they have withered, dried out and wilted under the intense sun. Thus, it makes sense that giving plants a certain amount of shade,

particularly during the hottest months, will make them stronger. And this is another reason that this experiment is so incredible. Most people are aware of the fact that organic agriculture comes with its own problems. Without resorting to effective, yet in many cases poisonous, pesticides and insecticides, organic agriculture can become one long battle against diseases and pests. However, stronger, healthier plants mean they are less susceptible to these maladies. Also, as the experiment has progressed, the team has been able to control temperature and humidity in zone A, thanks to it being a more

Projects such as these should be lauded and encouraged, yet the Spanish government is currently holding the sector back. It is taking so long for the new energy laws to be announced, many Spanish renewable energy businesses have had to lay off staff or close down completely. Grenergy meanwhile feels it has produced enough evidence in favour of its sustainable GreenPVhouse concept and aims to deploy it on a larger scale throughout the Islands as soon as the political conditions are right.

Alex Kelsey is the coordinator of the GreenPVhouse project

enclosed environment than a normal greenhouse, which has had a further positive effect on production and plant resilience to disease and pests. The company is now awaiting the new Canarian Energy Law, expected in early 2013, to see if the financial conditions will be suitable to facilitate the expansion of the operation by a further 15,000m2. According to ISTAC, the Canarian Statistics Institute, since 2009 the price of electricity has risen by 40 per cent; unemployment is presently over 30 per cent; only 15 per cent of food supplies for the tourist industry come from local sources and in 2011 the exportation of tomatoes fell by 18 per cent. Sustainable activity is possibly the only way forward for our rapidly expanding popula-

tion to survive, yet the word is often applied to ventures which are not. Scientifically, sustainability is considered in terms of environment, economics and society. To be truly sustainable a project must demonstrate viability and benefits in all these three aspects. The Grenergy GreenPVhouse project seems to meet all the criteria. Environmentally, it uses only organic growing methods and generates renewable energy. Economically, it creates enough income to be viable in its own right without the need for any public funding or support; and socially it can contribute to the regeneration of the agricultural sector, as well as create jobs for the local population: keeping the income on the Islands and directly improving

This wonderful dance company owes its existence to the tenacity of two people whose dedication to their dream has made such a huge difference to many people’s lives. Back in 1979 a young man called Miguel Navarro arrived in Tenerife from Spain and, along with Canarian Rosalina Ripoll, the idea of creating the island’s first professional ballet company was born. After

gathering together a number of participants, and months of practice, the group gave their first, modest, performance. Backed by Santa Cruz council, the open air show in Parque San Francisco in Puerto de la Cruz was a complete hit. The group’s interesting choreography earned the public’s respect, as well as sponsorship from the Caja Canarias cultural group throughout much of the 1980s. The second programme was an innovative version of Ravel’s Bolero and was such a success that many of the performers

One of the most brilliant and expressive musicians of his generation, Malikian was born in Libia to Armenian parents. At the age of 15 he received a scholarship to study in Germany, which was followed by further studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and personal tuition from some of the greatest such as Franco Gulli and Ruggiero Ricci. An inquisitive mind and endless search for new and vital connections has lead Malikian to form a fusion of styles from all over the world. Gypsy, Argentinean, Oriental, Arabic and flamenco sounds and rhythms all blend effortlessly when in the hands of this dazzling artist. Whilst the music itself

is a fascinating combination, Malikian’s performance is given with the pure control and expressiveness of the great European classical tradition and his concerts are truly exceptional.

Ringing the changes

C

hanging the look of your home is as easy as changing your own fashion look and requires the same rules – start with simple, stylish, good quality, timeless basics that can be dressed up or down as suits your mood or the times. And that is where BoConcept comes in. This innovative and modern company began in Denmark in 1952 and now has over 300 stores in over 50 countries. The object of the founders, talented Danish craftsmen Jens Ærthøj and Tage Mølholm, was not only to make furniture that looked good and was of superb quality, but that it should be functional with an ex-

cellent price/quality ratio. The success of the company speaks for itself and it continues to offer customised designs which are easily coordinated and at prices to suit all clients. Whether you know exactly what you want or not, all the stores have qualified interior design advisors who are as interested as you are in getting the look of your home just right and their

knowledge of design and their products will help you to select the best option for your property. Their interior design service is also available completely free and without obligation. A specialist will visit you, design room plans and provide sketches for you based on BoConcept’s top quality range of products. Passion for furnishing is the essence of this company, passion and persistence, from the designers to the store staff. Their common mission in life is to create designer furniture which is affordable to buyers with a modern urban mentality. Sixty years of experience and know-how in producing the very best for their customers, are part of the invaluable and beneficial

BoConcept heritage for the production plant, the suppliers, distributors and the clientele. Their suppliers are carefully chosen among those who share their commitment to top quality and it’s one of the most important ways they have of controlling the whole production process to guarantee maximum quality at all stages. BoConcept believe that excellence isn’t achieved by luck, but by working with dedication and consistency. Their integrated control supply procedure is based on the quality control system of the ISO 9000 and on their own immensely valuable production experience. Their quality control engineers work continuously on site with the suppliers to guarantee that the detailed steps are followed in full throughout the whole production process and, of course, the final pieces are fully checked before leaving the factory. All the furniture is made with top quality components and rooted in the company’s philosophy of obtaining functional designs at affordable prices, which is why they take so much effort to find the right balance between carefully selected materials, beautiful designs and simplicity.

Seeing is believing After opening in Tenerife in 2003, the company is now based in Adeje, so the BoConcept store is more accessible than ever. They really are passionate about what they do and the stock they have available, and delighted and proud to obtain the best results for their clients. If you are into contemporary rather that kitsch, this is the store for you. Go along and talk to one of their highly qualified interior design advisors. Buy something beautiful, stylish and functional that will last through the years. Spending on quality is always a good investment which you will never regret. The Adeje store is at Tinerfe el Grande, 23, Edificio el Cedro (Tel: 922 711 991). They are open Monday to Friday, 10am to 7pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Staff can look after you in Spanish, English and Swedish and their transport and assembly service is available all over the archipelago.

prospective buyers and an ensuite is practically expected nowadays. Otherwise, once again, it is worth looking for cupboards or other areas where you can extend the floor space of this room by opening it out. If not, no problem. Simply make your room as bright and airy as possible by opening the curtains wide, fitting lighter ones, in both weight and colour, and using lightcoloured bed linen. Also, make sure there is enough storage space and keep the room as tidy and well organised as possible – make it look effortless to maintain the room as wel-

coming and relaxing as a bedroom should be.

Breathe life into a cold bathroom by using warm coloured towels

Spare room If you have a spare room, try not to narrow down its potential use too much. Prospective new house owners could be visualizing this room as an office, playroom, nursery, sewing room, library: the list is endless. Allow their imaginations to run riot by keeping the space as clear and empty as possible, whilst making sure that there are enough power points, maybe a phone point as well, and moveable storage to keep the room as flex-

Paint, paint and paint. You can give any area a new, fresh and well cared for look with a simple few coats of paint. Also, a change of color to your walls can make a huge difference to how a room feels. It is the most cost effective way of brightening everything up that there is. You may be hoping to move out soon, but you don’t want prospective buyers to walk into a house that feels used and dingy: it won’t be very appealing. Keep colours light and neutral: a future buyer needs to be able to picture his or her things in the room, and too much personalization can prevent that.

Outside ible as possible. Throughout the rest of the house the same rules apply. Keep spaces well organised and clutter free, update any fixtures and fittings you can and make sure your house

smells nice. Yep, that’s right: use flowers, potpourri or any way you like, but our subconscious takes in clean and welcoming smells and it will be another point in your favour.

The front of your home is the first impression any visitor will receive. More than almost anywhere this is where you want to make sure that everything looks in tip top

shape. When prospective buyers pull up to the front of your home they will assume that the care and attention given to the outside reflects the level of care and attention given to the inside. If you have a house with a garden, obviously you will try and ensure that it is well looked after. And if you haven’t, even planting a few pots with flowers by the door can make a welcoming impression. Make sure all paint, wood and brickwork is in order and everything is gleaming. If you live in an apartment block, before the viewers arrive go through the route they will travel to your apartment and make sure that everything is as clean and tidy as possible. Make sure any roof area you have is also well maintained. If it is a flat roof you could consider breathing a little life into it if it is just a bare area. You could put together an attractive sitting area which makes the best of any view. it doesn’t have to be anything grand: a few plants and a couple of chairs won’t break the budget but will gain brownie points for your property as visitors see themselves relaxing in that welcoming corner.

rom Beethoven to Queen, the musical History gives tribute to some of the most iconic tunes, bands and composers throughout the ages. The show is an extravaganza that cannot fail to please all music lovers, no matter what their taste. Classical composers such as Bach and Strauss are represented, plus the greats of the mid twentieth century such as Elvis, Sinatra, Ray Charles and James Brown, to the fabulous 60s and 70s with The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Abba. However, it doesn’t stop there: moving on through the 80s and 90s with stars such as U2, Michael Jackson and Madonna, the show even comes bang up to date with bands and singers like Coldplay, Beyoncé and Adele.

irst, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ana Ruiloba and I am from Bilbao in Northern Spain. I was born into a family with a strong tradition in gastronomy, studied Oenology and Viticulture in La Rioja and for 10 years I ran a wine and delicatessen store in Los Cristianos. My passion for wine led me to enter the 2004 Canarian Regional Sommeliers contest in which I reached the final, and in 2005 I moved to El Hierro to cultivate my own vines. And now I have been invited to contribute to this Wine and Gastronomy section and I have happily accepted, so we can begin this adventure with the wines from this land and we will get to know many more together.

Islas Canarias The archipelago currently has 10 different wine denominations, with the island of Fuerteventura being the only one which isn’t included. In 2011 a further denomination was created, Quality Canarian Wines, with the intention of unifying the 10 regions into one for promotion abroad. Vine cultivation in the Islands began with the arrival of Europeans in the fourteenth century. The credit for having the very first plantation, in Los Realejos in 1497, is given

The absence of the phylloxera plague and the relative isolation of the islands from each other have meant that ancient varieties still exist here and therefore we are privileged to have a wonderful heritage of various individual wines.

The most important white varieties of these are: Albillo criollo, Albillo del monte Lentiscal, Baboso Blanco, Diego, Forastera, Gual, Listán Blanco, Malvasía Volcánica, Malvasia Aromática, Marmajuelo, Moscatel, Sabro, Verdello, Verdello de El Hierro and Verijadiego. For reds it’s: Listán Negro, Listán Prieto, Negramol, Baboso Negro, Bastardo Negro, Castellana, Tintilla and Vijariego. This edition we shall start by looking at the Malvasia Aromática. The malvasias were the ones which made Canary Island wines famous across the world thanks to their popularity at various European courts between the sixteenth and eigh-

Earlier this year investigators from the VITIS Project, a European led investigation of the traditional vine varieties in the Canar y Islands, Madeira and Cabo Verde, did an incredible identification and classification study and found 54 distinct varieties, 36 of which are very rare. A high proportion of these are only found here in the archipelago, owing to spontaneous crosses or the disappearance of these types in the rest of Europe due to the phylloxera that decimated vines across the continent.

teenth centuries. Originating from Crete, once introduced to our islands they took well to our volcanic lands. The first bodega opened its doors for the sale of wine in Garachico in 1507 and since 1540 the cultivation of the sweet malvasia wines for exportation at the Hacienda San Juan is carefully documented. Nowadays technology means that dry, semidry, semisweet or even fizzy wines can also be enjoyed. For instance, the Hacienda San Juan fizzy brut nature malvasia 2010 was created using the traditional Champagne method. It has a yellow colour with a hint of green and abundant, fine and persistent bubbles which form a crown on the surface. Clean and shiny. The sweetly perfumed bouquet is wonderfully in-

tense: rose and fruit with the sweet note that is typical of malvasia. The bubbles feel fine and pleasant in the mouth and the bouquet is complemented by the fresh and fruity taste with a hint of citric. It’s dry, fresh and the taste lingers pleasingly in the mouth. It’s also best served cold at six degrees centigrade. Production is limited to 1,200 bottles of this bright and cheerful wine, which is perfect for sharing with friends either on its own or accompanied by tempting nibbles. Before I go I would like to applaud the successful and pleasing work that a previous wine columnist for this media group, Gerald Ruben, has done with so much enthusiasm over such a long period.

German promotion

Lanzarote wines A group of German specialist wine importers visited Lanzarote bodegas recently to get to know their Malvasía Volcánica. Lanzarote bodegas sell 50 per cent of their production off the island. The bulk of it, 35 per cent, remains in the Canaries, nine per cent goes to the Spanish peninsula and the remainder is exported to foreign markets and especially Germany, the UK and the USA (in order of importance). The three day visit was organised by the Lanzarote Chamber of Commerce, the Lanzarote D.O., Proexca and Enterprise Europe Network of the Canaries and buyers had the chance to try 10 different brands - seven of them in situ at the bodegas and three in the Arrecife Gran Hotel.

B and B?

No, not bed and breakfast, but Bodega and Bodegón By John

T

hat is to say a Winery and (according to my dictionar y), an inexpensive restaurant - this place manages to be both, well. We were taken there a couple of weeks ago, and I thought that it was such a find that we should repeat the exercise by ourselves. We parked by a bus stop on the main road and walked up the narrow lane past what appeared to be a crumbling wooden structure masquerading as a vintage Canary balcony. A small obscure sign bolted to the whitewashed wall was almost the only indication that the front door, more of a rectangular hole in the wall, would lead us towards culinary heaven. The owners of this establishment, which is housed in an old 16th century building, part of which comprises the restaurant and kitchen, are newish (they have been there for only about six months). The other part is an area that is now in the process of being converted, at considerable cost, as I saw when we

were being shown where it is not yet open to the public, to house the new winery. Already the new stainless steel tanks, press, and other wine making paraphernalia are installed and workmen are toiling to complete the flooring to the yard outside. On the other side of the lane is a large smallholding, and Isabel is proud that they grow most of the vegetables used in their kitchen. Further up the lane are about three hectares of vineyard which produce the grapes for their red and white wines. Both are excellent and can only improve with the new equipment installed. El Raspón (the name loosely means the lees or stalks left over from the wine making process) is already well established, with two restaurant rooms and a small bar area. We sat at a chequered table in the interior room, really an old courtyard which has been roofed over. Around the edges runs a gallery, making the whole extremely charming in a rustic sort of way. We were told that there are plans afoot, when funds allow, to bring the gal-

lery and upstairs rooms back into play. Our ever smiling waitress was particularly helpful. With no printed menu, everything was rattled off to us in colloquial Spanish. The odd word that we could not decipher resulted in her running off into the kitchen to triumphantly bear back to us its subject matter. What a service! The menu changes depending on the season, although there are usually stalwarts such as Escaldón at €2.50 (a type of solid gofio stew, of which they are justly proud), Croquetas de Atun at €4.50 (tuna croquettes, moist on the inside, crispy on the outside and totally delicious), Fabada at €4.50 (a casserole of butter beans with chunks of bacon or pork), Garbanzas at €4.50 (chick pea stew) or Huevos a la Estampida at €4 (fundamentally glorified egg and chips). All of the foregoing are large enough to be main courses. On this visit we started with the house salad to share between us (€4.50 for two). It came beautifully prepared and included lettuce, nuts,

steeped s u l tanas, cubes o f white cheese, seeds and olives, all with a balsámico dressing. All in all a pyramid of harmonious syncopation for our tastebuds. It made a lovely change not to have just the usual ingredients of tomato, cucumber and onion and peppers. The next course was Queso Asado con Miel de La Palma (€3.50). This was a huge hot grilled slice of white cheese over which wonderful rich honey had been drizzled, and the whole topped with a scattering of toasted sun flower seed kernels. There was quite enough for four people on that one plate. Our main courses were a herby aubergine lasagne for my wife and for me, a casserole of pork, cut into bite sized chunks marinated and cooked in a salmorejo sauce, quite spicy with chilli. Both were voted a hit, especially at around €6 each. The postre or dessert of the house is their own avo-

red wine (it should be good as it is their own!) was €3.50 and we also had water and bread with a delicate light garlic dip. The final bill for all of the foregoing four courses for two people was the princely sum of €24 which just had to be outstanding value for money. cado mousse. They grow so many avocados just over the road that they needed to do something with them all! One portion of it was rich enough for the two of us, and was quite exceptional. We could have otherwise chosen dark or white chocolate mousse, lemon mousse, or Tiramisu. All the desserts were priced at only €2. Our half litre of the house

There are 12 tables in the two rooms, and by the time that we left at just after 3 pm (on a weekday) there was not one left free. I could have sold ours to the couple waiting anxiously by the bar. After those four very filling courses, we tottered back out into the sunshine and realised that we had indeed found a new ‘favourite’. But keep it to yourselves.

Dear Dr. De La Flor Dear Dr. De La Flor, Would it be ok to do an occult blood test instead of a colonoscopy to detect colon cancer? I´m a bit apprehensive about a colonoscopy. Cheers, John

Dear John, I totally understand your feelings. If you’re reluctant to

make a decision, remember that any discomfor t or embar rassment from screening tests is temporary - and detecting problems early could save your life. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths for men and women combined. Good news is that it is highly curable when detected early. Unfortunately, faecal blood tests aren’t a substitute for a full colonoscopy, which is necessary to remove polyps so they can be biopsied and to definitively diagnose cancer. A colonoscopy is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine and rectum. A long, flexible tube is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube allows the doctor to view the inside of the entire colon. It’s generally considered the gold standard for colon

A colonoscopy helps doctors to see abnormalities and aids in preventing cancer

screening. Polyps or other types of abnormal tissue can be removed through the scope during the exam. Tissue samples (biopsies) can be taken as well. A faecal occult blood test is a lab test used to check stool samples for hidden blood. The main points against it are: it fails to detect most polyps and some cancers; if blood is detected, additional tests might be needed to determine the root of the cause. To help choose the screening test that’s most appropriate for you it’s essential that you have a thorough conversation with your doctor, also because it’ll provide you with peace of mind. I would ask you about age, precancerous polyps, parent/sibling or child with relevant conditions; history of inflammatory bowel diseases among others. Write down all your questions and concerns and pay a visit to your doctor. Best wishes and keep me posted.

Because it is not known what causes this disease, which occurs most often in the over 50s, there has been little progress with effective treatment until recently. However, a new drug released onto the market last year is apparently giving victims renewed hope. Pirfenidone, developed by InterMune Inc., is sold in Europe under the trade name Esbriet and is said to slow down the advance of the disease and thus improve the quality of life for victims. In the Canary Islands around 500 people currently have the condition, which affects two or three times as many men as women, and the number of new cases is rising each year.

Drug breakthrough

Lung disease hope

The Spanish health service is currently investigating the possibility of introducing a new pharmaceutical drug for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. IPF, as it is known, is a chronic, progressive form of lung disease. The air sacs and their supporting structures in the lungs become inflamed and scarred, making the lungs thick and stiff. It causes chest pain, a dry cough and shortness of breath during activity. It becomes increasingly harder for sufferers to catch their breath and in serious cases the blood may not receive enough oxygen, which can lead to further complications.

The Health Service’s commitment to making Pirfenidone available for doctors to prescribe was introduced at the recent Conference of the Canarian Association for Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery held in Gran Canaria. The drug does not promise a miracle cure but in clinical trials has been shown to slow the disease’s progress down considerably. The Spanish Medical Agency has to first approve the drug for use in the country, but the initial indications are favorable.

Implants, dentures or bridge

F

rom whatever angle you look at it, implants are the latest and most effective means to restore lost teeth.

This applies to individual teeth as well as larger gaps or the entire dentition. The four main advantages of the implant compared to conventional dentures methods are: aesthetics, preservation of teeth, perfect grip and durability. Just for aesthetics, implants are generally preferred, they fit like your own teeth into your dental line-up and they also prevent gum and jaw bone loss, often associated with other dental options. The implant is firmly in place, like your own teeth. No annoying adhesive creams

are necessary to guarantee a per fect fit, and comfor t when talking and chewing is the same as if they were your own teeth. There are no embarrassing clicking sounds or uncomfortable movement of the teeth whilst eating. The technology is so advanced that successful deployment is ensured. Another important point is that, in contrast to a bridge, adjacent teeth are not affected which means maximum protection of your own teeth.

Requirements for successful implants The general and oral health of the patient should be good and it is important that sufficient bone mass is present so

the implant can be inserted. Ideally, there should be no gum disease. To guarantee a perfect fit, patients, dentists and dental technicians should work hand in hand. Only then can an individual solution be found for the benefit of each patient: using this method to anchor one or more teeth in the jaw or even replacing a complete set. Incidentally, even if you have to replace the whole dentition, this doesn’t mean you save a regular visit to the dentist. The artificial teeth must still be cleaned, maintained and checked in order to keep their quality, and before any decision is made in each case a comprehensive consultation with the dentist needs to take place.

Health campaign

Hairy warning November saw millions of men growing a moustache as part of the Movember campaign to raise awareness of illnesses that primarily affect men. Prostate cancer, for example, claims almost 6,000 lives every year in Spain and the message is simple: the importance of taking care of your health is as obvious as the moustache

on your face. Men should have annual prostate checkups from 50 years old or from 40 if there is a family history of the condition. Various Spanish celebrities and athletes have supported the campaign, including almost the entire Spanish Rugby team and several top golfers including Miguel Ángel Jiménez.

Handmade gifts

Have a creative Christmas With the right materials and a bit of imagination you can make wonderful presents that everyone will love, and making Christmas gifts can be fun for you and your family. By Diane Warner

W

tainer works best: you can use a small storage or recycled jam jar, make a cloth top and tie a ribbon around this with a message tag or poem on for the person you are giving it to. Food colouring can also be used: just add a few drops until the desired colour is achieved.

e all ponder about giving the perfect gift and what could be better than the satisfaction you will get from having created a personalised present, right from scratch. And also won‘t it be good to give something that is not only heartfelt, but doesn´t pull on the purse strings. Here are a few simple ideas you can make at home.

Scrapbooking The art of Scrapbooking has been around for many years, and a keepsake of an event, party or holiday can really make an excellent gift. It begins with a bit of forward planning: if you have a memorable occasion coming up, whether it be a christening, birthday party, day out or wedding, with a little organisation you can save some notable memories of the day and also take some great pictures. Collect as many items to do with your party or holiday as you can: ticket stubs, maps, post cards, invitations and any keepsake you think will keep the memory alive for the person you are making your scrapbook for. Don´t forget to write down the places you visited and the people you met as this will come in handy when setting out your scrapbook and writing your captions. All you need is some bright coloured paper to make your book, some glue, a craft knife, some nice coloured felt tip or metallic pens and a bit of imagination. You can highlight certain moments or lay out the photos and captions in the order they took place to recreate the story. Add as many keep sakes as you can: when the past seems a long and distant memoy the small attention to detail makes all the difference. For more information and ideas on scrapbooking visit: www. themakingspot.com

Body & foot scrubs

Fridge magnets Turn ordinary clothes pegs into fridge magnets. As well as a few wooden pegs with metal springs you will also need magnetic tape, decorative paper, ribbon, paint and craft glue. Cut the magnetic tape to size and stick to one side of the peg. Decorate the other side with paint or by sticking decorative paper, ribbon or any other material onto it. When attaching decorative paper, cut the paper slightly bigger than the peg and, once the glue has dried, trim the edges with a craft knife for a good finish. Add some extra patterns with stickers or diamantes.

Relaxing treats These are all really quick and easy gifts to make, and are even better when you can dress them up or personalize them for that extra special touch.

Soothing bathtimes You will need a cup of rock or sea salt, one cup of Epsom salts, two tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda and about 15 drops of essential oils. Mix the salts together in a metal or glass container, sift in the bicarbonate of soda and stir well. Add the essential oils and combine thoroughly. Lavender oil is best for soothing and relaxation. Rose is feminine and romantic. Peppermint and citrus oils are invigorating. Patchouli and Sandalwood are darker and more masculine. I think that a nice glass con-

Easy to make and wonderful to use

Sugar Scrub Mix one cup of fine brown sugar with half a cup of sweet almond oil, 30 drops of vanilla essential oil or one tea spoon of vanilla essence. Thoroughly mix the sugar and essential oil (or essence) in a glass or ceramic bowl and add the almond oil gradually, stirring consistently. Stop when the salt reaches the consistency of wet sand. Transfer the scrub to a bottle and decorate and label.

thirds of the overall measurement and the ground one third. Draw the house, roof, chimney, windows, door, trees and flowers to your own preference. Make templates using tracing or baking paper. Cut out your material, and machine or hand sew your pieces on to your backing. You do not have to hem any of the edges. I find it best to place the pattern pieces and iron them on first and then sew into place. Once you have completed your sewing you can then trim off any frayed edges. You can then set this inside a picture frame or even make it into a cushion cover.

Wall calendars Salt Scrub Follow the directions above but use finely ground salt instead of sugar. Mix with 10 drops of lavender, six of geranium and four drops of ylang ylang.

Coffee body scrub It’s the same method again, but you will need one cup of ground coffee, one tablespoon of salt, one teaspoon of cinnamon, a third of a cup of sweet almond oil, eight drops of grapefruit essential oil, eight of orange and four drops of peppermint.

Dream house A patchwork cushion or picture can be made from leftover pieces of material or wool. This gift can be personalized by making the image the same as your house or the house of the person you are giving it to. Here I knitted a square approximately 33 cm x 33 cm, but this can be as big or small as you like. You can also use material for the backing. The sky area should be about two

A calendar can be made from your family pictures, your favourite landscapes, photos of your family pet or even a collection of paintings from your children. Anything goes and you can easily print out a calendar template from the internet and arrange your pictures around this. You can even insert birthdays and holidays into the template, so it comes with them already marked. Design it first so you know what is going where and then get a piece of card out that is bigger than A4. I used a large gift bag (32.5 x 39 centimetres) as they are ideal. They already have a hanging cord and for less than a few euros you can make two calendars. Have a play around, and when you are happy everything is in the right place, stick them down. If you want a calendar that shows each month; using double sided sticky tape stick an A4 clear plastic wallet to the calendar, print off one month per page and place in the plastic wallet: these can then be taken out at any time to be updated or changed.

These are just a few ideas that you can try but there are many more you can tackle. For instance, decorating a plain plant pot with some bright coloured paints, designing a book mark, sewing or knitting a hot water bottle cover, making a needle case or creating a candle holder. Making presents is a lot of fun and can also save you money; which is music to all our ears. You could even get together with a friend and share the cost of materials, and it’s double the entertainment by making your gifts together.

t’s time to start thinking about Christmas and the gifts we’d like to buy for our families. The festive season seems to appear so suddenly we often find we’ve waited too long to book tickets if we’re going home, or to buy some warmer clothes for when we get there. But one thing we all can do is apply for the Winter Fuel Allowance if we don’t already get it. Previously, if you were living abroad when you actually became of pensionable age, you were not eligible. Now, thanks to a ruling in the European Courts, you may be able to if you live within the EU and do not claim Winter Fuel Payments, but have a UK state pension or benefit in payment. Below is a link to the website.  If you scroll down it shows you how to put in a claim and there is a link to the correct form. If you are in receipt of a UK pension or benefits then there is no need to send in a birth certificate as they already have proof of that. http://www.direct.gov. uk/en/Pensionsandretirementplanning/Benefits/ BenefitsInRetirement/DG_ 198331

A recent visit from a couple of American friends highlighted this new and latest downturn in the service offered by the Spanish banks. Amazingly it also applies to our UK visitors, which seems consumately stupid in an economy that relies on tourism to survive and where the UK visitors make up the most important group. It means that our highest money ear ners are at the mercy of money changers, an expensive and unpleasant prospect only underlined by

I thought this week I’d give you some interesting information you may not know regarding Audrey Hepburn.

She was a tremendous actress, and starred in so many memorable films, like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, My fair Lady, and The Nun’s Story. She was thin to the point of emaciation, but was so beautiful that she became an icon and made famous the ‘little black dress’ as designed by Coco Channel, as well as pedal pushers and soft flat shoes to go with them. But what many people don’t realise is that she was a teenager in the war, and was literally starving. Her father was British and her mother was from the Netherlands. Born in Ixelles, a district of Brussels, Audrey spent her childhood between Belgium, England and the Netherlands. She was a clever child and was fluent in Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian, as well as English. Her father was a Nazi sympathizer, and left the home when she was only six, and she and her mother moved to Kent. In September 1939, Hepburn’s mother decided to return to

Arnhem, in the belief that (as during World War I) the Netherlands would remain neutral and be spared a German attack. Whilst there, Hepburn attended the Arnhem Conservatory from 1939 to 1945 where, in addition to the standard school curriculum, she trained in ballet with Winja Marova. At the end of the war she was only 15 years old, but her experiences during this terrible time remained in her thoughts and were why from the 50s onwards she became so involved with UNICEF.

In a retrospective interview, Audrey commented sadly, “I have memories. More than once I was at the station seeing trainloads of Jews being transported, seeing all these faces over the top of the wagon. I remember, very sharply, one little boy standing with his parents on the platform, very pale, very blond, wearing a coat that was much too big for him, and he stepped on to the train. I was a child observing a child.” Only later did she realise what had happened to all those people.

After two operations she was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer, and after coming to terms with the gravity of her illness, her family decided to return home to Switzerland in order to celebrate her last Christmas. She died on January 20, 1993, of appendicle cancer which had spread to other major parts of her body.

Horoscopes 16 Nov - 29 Nov

Aries 21.03. – 20.04. Think through ideas before you impulsively jump off at the deep end. There is a golden opportunity for you to explore a latent talent which may surprise you.

Taurus 21.04. – 20.05. It’s time to be a little experimental and learn something new. Watch out for a charming soul, that could bring a distant wish a little closer, and listen carefully to what they have to say.

Gemini 21.05. – 21.06. Someone makes a potentially difficult thing look very easy, but be a little cautious initially. Then get your sleeves rolled up and find practical solutions for that tricky situation.

She left behind a legacy of bravery, kindness, and in later life, self sacrifice for the underprivileged children she tried to help, and even the Dutch Royal family sent flowers to her funeral, which was attended by all of her husbands and her beloved sons.

Cancer 22.06. – 22.07.

A great actress and a great humanitarian.

Leo 23.07. – 23.08.

There could be a situation developing in your local area soon so keep your eyes open. You may even come into money in the near future.

Now is the time to take a long hard look at what and who is in your life right now, and throw out anything you don’t need. You will feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when you do.

Virgo 24.08. – 23.09. You may be going over old ground lately, trying to get things right this time. Good luck. The emphasis for you and your loved ones is on lots of talking and communication.

After three marriages, two sons and an amazing life, in late September, 1992, she complained of stomach pains.

Libra 24.09. – 23.10. There is a possibility of some exciting journeys and unusual travel destinations coming up. Even new people: it’s an exciting time for you right now.

a recent trip to the UK where the airline gave such a rubbish rate for purchases on board that it represented an almost 20 per cent exchange charge - total rip off.

on our Facebook page:

On: School cleaner in scorpion scare: Teeny Vicente, (translated) “That’s all that we need. Where could it have come from?” Julie Mayberry, “the only scorpions here are from the idiots that let them escape from their tanks grrr.”

On: Bulldozers move in on Cho Vito ‘illegals’ Israel Santos, “Justice is truly blind” Sue Hamilton Briggs, “Were they really doing any harm?” and “Awful to watch your home destroyed and to be made homeless too although apparently the gov have offered rented accommodation, maybe they weren’t seen to be contributing to the community as they built their own homes. Sad for them either way.”

On: President resurrects ‘Canarians only’ employment debate Chris Todd “Thin line between patriotism and racism. Put it this way, the BNP say exactly the same in the UK and get blasted yet the PRESIDENT of the Canaries was applauded by scores of businessmen and politicians after these statements. Also the media (TV Canaria mainly) love him.”

On: Thousands attend strike protest march in Santa Cruz (for the general strike) Israel Santos, “ N o violence here, the police were not ordered to create it, unlike in the mainland.”

Scorpio 24.10. – 22.11. This may be a tense time for you at the moment and the focus is on family affairs and relationships. Hang on in there, it will be ok.

Sagittarius 23.11. – 21.12.

Don’t rest on your laurels: as long as you have a sense of purpose, a specific goal, and the desire to achieve a certain outcome you should be very pleased with the results.

Carpicorn 22.12. – 20.01. This is a very creative phase for you, and you come up with some great ideas. Work life should be more harmonious giving you more time for home and family.

Aquarius 21.01. – 20.02. Be wary of other’s opinions and advice and take a moment to think before you get involved in any dispute: trust your intuition and don’t let anyone use you as ammunition.

Pisces 21.02. – 20.03. Something surprising is coming your way which may change your perspective of life. Don’t worry, others will be supportive, but maybe not in the way you think

ogs and their companions once again flooded to attend this year’s massive canine experience in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. The 2nd Dog Day event attracted 11,000 people and 4,500 dogs during the two days which included various activities. As well as workshops regarding animal safety, travel and training, there were also talks on the responsibilities involved with having an urban dog and of how to improve the lives of canines living in city environments. There was plenty of fun to be had as well. For the athletic types there was the first canine cross running race, that covered a length of 4.6 kilometres from El Confital to Parque Santa Catalina, and which attracted 60 participants. There was also a more leisurely jogging route, which 700 people of all ages took part in. Guardia Civil, Police and Rescue units all gave demonstrations with their dogs. Simulations of how the animals help search for explo-

sives, narcotics and missing people were well appreciated and showed the important contribution that they make to society. The event’s official mascot was also named this year. He’ll be called ‘Gofio’ after the islands’ famous staple cereal meal thanks to the name being chosen by popular poll via an internet survey. One of the high spots of the weekend was the Adoption Party where more than 200 residents of the area were awarded for being “example citizens” for the work they have done towards animal rehoming. A free consultation with a veterinary surgeon was also available, as well as a variety of exhibitions and doggie themed games. It looks like this event is turning into the one of the forerunners of its kind in the archipelago, so look out for it next year. Forward thinking Las Palmas council, which has also opened two dog parks in the city during the last six months, does a lot to improve education, encourage tolerance and strengthen enjoyment of animal company.

This very friendly, large dog is around 2 / 3 years old and would be great with people who like to walk. He gets on with other big dogs, but isn’t keen on little ones. Please call Pat on 608 121 081or email info@k9tenerife.com if you can give him a permanent home.

Boxing

By George Reed

The greatest heavyweight era Continued from back page

Sadly Ali, now 70, has suffered Parkinson’s disease since 1984 and he no longer floats like a butterfly, instead he trembles like a leaf, yet, even though six years ago his daughter Laila was reported to have said that she feared that he only had months to live, he’s still fighting the incurable disease. People may feel sorry for him, but as one of the older generation who actually lived through his prime, I think the one we really feel sorry for are ourselves. What we miss is the oneman phenomenon who launched on a new thrill ride nearly every day, and the boxing world today utterly starves for just a morsel of his magic. Who can ever forget his three ding-dong battles with the late Joe Frazier or other classic fights he was involved in during his career against topclass opposition? However, to my mind his greatest feat in the ring happened in Zaire on 30th October 1974, when under a black African sky 62,000 fans were present to see if Ali could regain the heavyweight crown by beating the supposedly unbeatable George Foreman, who was the hot favourite, due to the fact that Ali had lost three years of his prime when the U.S. Government banned him from boxing for refusing to join the armed services during the Vietnam War. Using what Ali later defined as his “rope-adope” trick, letting Foreman wear himself out, and then depositing the champion on the canvas with a combination of punches for the final count in the 8th round. Another heavyweight who came to the fore during the latter part of Ali’s career is now classed up there with ‘The Greatest’ by boxing experts. Larry Holmes was at one time a sparring partner for both Ali and Frazier and would go on to win the heavyweight title, hold it for seven years and defend it 20 times. One of his defences was against Ali, who at the time was not the force of old and Holmes, to his credit, declined to punish the ex champion unnecessarily, until mercifully Ali’s corner retired their man at the end of the 10th round. Unlike a lot of former champions Holmes looked after his finances and he owns most of the town where he lives, Easton, Pennsylvania, and is a multimillionaire. On a visit to the States a few years ago, I had the pleasure of spending some time with the former champ at his night club, where he personally showed me around the venue, which was adorned with 100s of photographs and memorabilia of his fighting days. On one occasion during his career Holmes, in a fit of temper, stated that Rocky Marciano couldn’t carry his jock-strap, which he later apologized for. When he asked how he thought fighters like Mike Tyson would fare against the greats who were around in the 60s and 70s he said, “Frazier would have bombed Tyson out. Ali would have ambushed him. Foreman? After he hit Tyson, Mike would have been ready for social security. Every time he got knocked down, he never got up. The others who came after would just have been sparring partners.” I know the past always seems better. In this regard it certainly was, so Holms doesn’t need to apologize for these remarks.

Referee ‘persecution’ Home help claims

CD Marino

though neither team felt it had, and then having a player and the manager sent off in a tense first 45 minutes, Tijarafe decided not to take to the field for the second half. The club made their feelings known to the home side, CD Vera, and to the match officials and said they had no other way of getting the point across. It has been the only point by the La Palma outfit so far in a season which has seen them lose every game. The protest was featured in top Spanish sports daily Marca and a host of national papers.

L

a Palma football side Tijarafe earned write-ups in all the big sports papers after staging a peculiar protest at what its players felt was unjust treatment by the referee during a 3rd Division game in Puerto de la Cruz recently. After conceding a ‘nonexistent’ goal when the linesman signalled the ball had crossed the line even

CD Tenerife :

Bad news CD

Tenerife have a more formidable promotion rival as of now with the takeover of Oviedo by one of the world’s richest men due to a radio prank. Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim was fooled into thinking he was being called by exReal Madrid legend Emilio

Butragüeño with a plea to bail out the troubled Division 2B side, but the call was in fact from an impersonator on the hugely-popular COPE station’s nightly sport show. Slim was so impressed with the prank that he made discreet enquiries about Oviedo’s situation and then bought 2 million euros

in shares just hours before a capital increase deadline expired. The battle to save the club drew a staggering 20,000 fans to a recent home game and the arrival of the Mexican is seen as the final piece in the ambitious plans to put Oviedo back in the big time. Which could mean bad news for Tenerife, since Oviedo are in the same group as the islanders.

Basketball :

Rost shows his worth

A

merican Levi Rost is rewarding the faith placed in him by Iberostar Canarias with performances that have made him one of the side’s most valuable players of the season so far.

The 29-year-old from Michigan was considered a likely candidate to leave the La Laguna side, who are back in the top flight of Spanish basketball for the first time in two decades, given the need

Los Cristianos side Marino are hoping that their bigger neighbours up the motorway will give them a helping hand when the winter transfer window opens. The struggling newcomers to Division 2B need to strengthen their squad to have a realistic chance of survival but, with tiny crowds at home games, do not have the funds available for signings. Given the situation, Marino are crossing their fingers that Tenerife will bring in some new players once the window opens and arrivals could mean that fringe players might be released on loan for the rest of the year. If one or more do make the trip down the TF1 to a new home for the second half of the season, it will give an even bigger CD Tenerife flavour to Marino, who signed three players from their neighbours during the summer. Goalkeeper Mario and midfielder Reverón have been signed on a buyback deal which could see them return to Santa Cruz next season, while forward Sandro is on a full season’s loan to the Los Cristianos club.

to allocate his non-EU place to a proven ACB player, but coach Alejandro Martínez was certain Rost would make the grade in the world’s second toughest league. While all eyes were on players such as Jakim Donaldson, Nico Richotti and new arrivals Saul Blanco and Ricardo Uriz, whom fans were convinced would be the main contributors, Rost has quietly gone about cementing his reputation as a key player. During the first two months of the league he averaged almost 13 points per game, to become top scorer at Canarias, and even posted an impressive 80 per cent 3-point shooting record in the game against Barcelona in week five. The versatile Rost has also shown himself to be a consistent Levi Rost (right) gets rebounder in several games, at pumped up with his team times capturing more rebounds mates before a game than much bigger forwards.

Still on top CD Tenerife 4 Marino de Luanco 0 This latest victory was not perhaps as convincing as the scoreline suggests but the win was certainly welcome after two straight draws. The visitors from Asturias in Northern Spain were well positioned and they knew a win could lift them to 3rd in the table. The flowing football from the blanquiazules was painfully absent but that all changed just before the break when Chechu cut through the Marino de Luanco defence and squared the ball for the incoming Suso to score his first goal since last March and he was ecstatic. The second half was all Tenerife but with the score at just 1-0 there was always a slight doubt

about securing all 3 points. However, Luismi Loro made it 2-0 before Suso scored again to give Tenerife a 3-0 lead. In the closing minutes substitute Guillem Marti slammed the ball into the top corner: a superb climax to a difficult game.

Sporting Gijon 3 CD Tenerife 2 Before the match the only unbeaten teams in the whole of Spanish football were CD Tenerife and FC Barcelona. This statistic was broken though after the blanquiazules suffered their first defeat of the season in a seesaw game in Gijon. The blustery conditions made it difficult, but Sporting took the lead through Moisés at 12 minutes. The

goal shook Tenerife up, but minutes later Aridane scored his 10th goal of the campaign. Sporting took the lead again after the break, yet Moyano scored a well taken half volley to make the score 2-2, not bad for a right back! As the blanquiazules pushed for a winner in the closing minutes Sporting counter attacked. Guerrero calmly slipped the ball under Aragoneses and into the goal. It was a cruel blow to concede in the 92nd minute, but fortunately later in the day Tenerife’s main rivals surprisingly lost, keeping Tenerife top of the league as they look forward to next Sunday’s massive game when Real Oviedo visit the Island after their much publicised takeover last week by the world’s richest man, Mexican Carlos Slim (see page 54).

In possibly one of the worst weeks of the Season yet Marino not only managed to lose two more games, but were also relieved of their trainer. Willy Barroso was asked to leave after the southern Tenerife team’s dreadful results that have left them at the bottom of their league.

CD Ourense 3 CD Marino 1

CD Marino fell badly before the Galician team that cleary dominated the game. The team’s first two goals came in the last 10 mintues before half time, the first from Jonas and the second aa magnificent kick

from Seria Borja Yebra. Marino came out fighting after the break allowing Adan to even the score a little but, at the 78th minute, Ivan shot the ball to the back of Marino’s net and another defeat for Marino was called.

Cd Marino 1 Caudal 3 In a very poor game indeed CD Marino once again lost out. With various leading team mem-

bers already off due to injury it was a terrible blow when Muny on defence had to be withdrawn. The Asturian team rightly took advantage of the situation and by halftime Marino were already two goals down. The second half went much the same way, though Aarón Darias did score with a great corner, but to no avail. Another for Caudal went in at 52 minutes and Marino’s fate was sealed.

Boxing >> By George Reed

The greatest heavyweight era

T

here’s only been one memorable era in boxing heavyweight histor y and that was the 1960s and 70s when some of the greatest heavyweights ever fought each other on a regular basis, giving the world some of the greatest heavyweight fights, and I feel a little sorry for those too young to have experienced it. For it was a period when the world heavyweight champion defended his title with relish, and I remember so clearly, the magical night in 1964 in Miami, when a legend was born in the shape of Cassius Clay, who would shortly after become Muhammad Ali. I close my eyes and I can hear it, after he had stopped the world champion Sonny Liston. The utter chaos as thousand of fans screamed their heads off. Yet the only voice you could hear really, the only one that truly rivets you, is the one carrying that unmistakable Bark of Brashness in its tone. The voice that rants crazily through the microphone, the voice of the cocky babyfaced pugilist of 22 then known as Cassius Clay. “Look at me, I just beat Sonny Liston and I don’t have a single mark on my face...eat your words, I just shook up the wooooorld”. The youngster didn’t come up for oxygen for a moment; as usual his mouth was running on pure octane. “I must be the greatest...I must be the greatest...must be the greatest!” These words that echoed through the overhead rafters of Miami Beach Auditorium would continue to do so for decades to follow.
