EU wants clarity on US data snooping

The EU has announced it will demand assurances that Europeans are not having their rights infringed FULLY LICENSED PAWNBROKER by a massive surveillance programme run by the US. FULLY LICENSED GOLD DEALER

Health Commissioner Tonio Borg said the EU wanted a "clear commitment" from the US to respect data-protection rights.

Last week a series of leaks by a former CIA worker led to claims the US had a vast surveillance network with much less oversight than previously thought. The US insists its snooping is legal under domestic law. Officials said the snooping programme known as Prism, revealed in last

week's leaks, is authorised under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (Fisa). It gives the US National Security Agency (NSA) the power to obtain emails and phone records relating to non-US nationals, but details about the individuals targeted under the act remain secret, and there are concerns the NSA is overstepping its powers.

Documents leaked to the Washington Post and Guardian newspapers claimed the US authorities

had direct access to the servers of major US technology firms such as Apple and Google.

The Obama administration is investigating whether the disclosures by former CIA worker Edward Snowden constituted a criminal offence. Mr Snowden told the Guardian that individual operatives had the power to tap into anyone's emails at any time. In the US, the controversy has focused on the possibility that

I was going down to the coast the other day and it occurred to me how bonkers some of the road speed limits are here. On one particular stretch, and within about 100 yards the limit went from 70 down to 50 then back up to 60. I can understand that, if there’s some kind of a hazard this might be sensible but this was a perfectly straight bit of road with nothing on either side other than fields, and the road was raised so you could see perfectly. True there could have been an eagle land right in front of you or a worm crossing the road but, other than that if there had been anything else around you’d have seen it coming ages before it got anywhere near you. Most of the time I get the speed limits. They seem pretty sensible and get you round corners comfortably but, now and again it seems as my neighbour says that it “has gone horribly Spanish”.

I think I need another holiday to get over this one! The weather in the UK was cold and windy in the mornings then gloriously warm in the afternoons.

Meanwhile, the whereabouts of Mr Snowden are unknown – he was believed to be in hiding after reportedly checking out of a Hong Kong hotel on Monday. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, said US authorities were "aggressively" pursuing him. The California Democrat also accused the 29-year-old of "an act of treason". The top Republican in the US House of Representatives, Speaker John Boehner, labelled Mr Snowden a "traitor". US officials admitted the existence of Prism after the Washington Post


and Guardian published slides from an apparently internal NSA presentation emblazoned with a Prism logo marked "top secret".

The first of the leaks came out when the Guardian reported phone company Verizon had been ordered to hand over the details of millions of calls. The US surveillance programme has been the subject of controversy for years. After the attacks on the US on 11th September 2001, the government began pushing for wider wiretap powers than those authorised under Fisa. US President Barack Obama has characterised the surveillance as a

"modest encroachment" on privacy, needed to keep



the US terrorism.

National News Recommendations for pensions

A group of experts commissioned by the government to design a plan for the sustainability of the state pension system have come up with a two-fold mechanism to increase savings within the nation’s Social Security system.

Socialist government in 2011 and provided for the gradual increase of the retirement age to 67 by 2027. The working group then recommended that retirement at 67 should be kept after that date.

First, the current pension system should not be linked to inflation, instead it should base periodic hikes on the actual health of the economy.

The government now has to obtain the agreement of the other political parties before a law can be drafted for presentation to the European Commission by September – the deadline to which the Rajoy government has committed itself.

At the same time, the committee recommends that pensions for newly retired citizens should be based in future on their life expectancy at the time they retire. The last reform of the pension system was passed by the

Less than two years after a monument was erected in the gardens of the Complutense University in Madrid to the 35,000 volunteers who joined the International Brigades to fight Franco during the Spanish civil war, a court has ordered that it be pulled down.

The monument to volunteers from 53 countries, which was paid for by public subscription and placed on the spot where many of them died defending Madrid, had angered some right wingers. Lawyer Miguel García took up their cause, arguing that the university had broken planning laws and the monument should be removed. It bears the words of Dolores Ibárruri, the

communist firebrand known as La Pasionaria: "You are history; you are legend; you are an heroic example of solidarity and of the universality of democracy." Supporters of the brigades have written to the British ambassador in Madrid, Giles Paxman, to ask him to intervene. Jim Jump, secretary of the London-based International Brigade Memorial Trust, said: "Although the court's decision was taken on

technical grounds, the original complaint was lodged by a lawyer with known far-right connections."

García wrote in his original writ there was "nothing to celebrate, and especially not in a public space devoted to education," adding that the International Brigades were "created and managed by Stalin, the most genocidal leader in history".

Former minister investigated for graft

The Supreme Court has asked Parliament to set aside the immunity of Socialist MP José Blanco so that it can prosecute him on charges of influence-peddling committed when he was the public works minister in Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's government.

The court has been investigating Blanco, who was the Socialist government’s chief

spokesman in 2011, on allegations that he helped a Galician pharmaceutical businessman, Jorge Dorribo, obtain permits for his businesses in exchange for at least €290,000.

The court also alleges that Blanco helped businessman José Antonio Orozco, to obtain a warehouse license. Blanco, who has denied the accusations, said in March he would step down

from his parliamentary seat if probable cause was found against him and a trial date set.

At a news conference on Monday, when asked whether he still backed Blanco, Socialist Party leader Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba curtly replied "yes". "I have nothing new to add," he said. Several weeks ago, he told reporters he would put his hand in the fire for Blanco.

MPs to give up cutprice drinks

MPs have agreed to take subsidised alcoholic drinks off the menu in Parliament's cafeterias in response to objections from a public afflicted by unemployment and an economic crisis.

Fixed low prices had meant MPs could enjoy a gin and tonic for €3.45 – about half the price in regular bars. The issue arose when Parliament began to take bids from

catering companies to run the cafeterias that had to guarantee services which included a €9 lunch menu and cheap gin and tonics. Members of the public were quick to point out that "there's no money for school lunches, but there is for gin".

Polls show that politicians have a disapproval rating of 93 per cent. But as several politicians from different

parties pointed out, they only make up one per cent of the cafeterias' customers.

The rest are secretaries, security men and people who provide other services in the parliamentary complex. They will all continue to enjoy the other fixed prices – including 95 cents for a glass of beer, compared to €1.5-€2 in a bar.

Costa Brava town says goodbye to Tom Sharpe

Catalan officials offered their condolences last week over the death at the age 85 of Tom Sharpe – the British satirical novelist and author of the Wilt series – who had been living in the region for over 15 years. The first deputy mayor of Palafrugell, Albert Gómez, held a joint press conference with the writer’s widow, Nancy Sharpe, his doctor, and the director of the Hotel Llevant, where he had spent four long spells before buying his home in Llafranc.

Nancy Sharpe, a US citizen, said Llafrance had been very good for him – "he loved the light, the Mediterranean and the sun”. The manager of the hotel, Carme Farrarons, said Sharpe first stayed at her establishment in the early 1990s in the company of his agent. Llafranc was “love at first sight,” she said. His physician, Montserrat Verdaguer, said that Sharpe died “calmly” and revealed that he had been working on an

autobiography. Sharpe nearly died of peritonitis in 2006, but he survived and dedicated his next novel, The Gropes, to the Catalan team of doctors who treated him. He also publicly described the Catalan health system as “marvellous” and said that had he been treated in England, “I might be dead right now.”

Palafrugell mayor Juli Fernandez said: “He was a great champion of human rights and equality.” He added that Llafranc will now name a street or square after him, if his family so wishes. Thomas Ridley Sharpe was born in London on March 30th, 1928. His father, a Unitarian clergyman, was sympathetic to the Nazi regime in the 1930s. "I think he must have gone dotty," the author – who rejected his father's politics – would later remark. Sharpe did his national service in the Marines from 1946 to 1948

before reading history at Pembroke College in Cambridge. He went to South Africa in 1951 where he did social work in Johannesburg before teaching in Natal. A vocal critic of the Apartheid regime, he was arrested and deported in 1961 after a play he wrote attacking it was staged in London.

From 1963 to 1972, Sharpe worked as a lecturer in history at the Cambridge College of Arts and Technology – experience he would draw on when he came to write Wilt. A film version of that novel, starring comedy duo Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones, was produced in 1989 but was not well

received. Sharpe's first novel – Riotous Assembly, a satire of Apartheid set in a fictional South African town – was published in 1971 when he was 43 and spawned a sequel, Indecent Exposure, two years later. From that point on he produced a book every year, using one of the 17 typewriters he kept around his Cambridgeshire house. In 1971 he married Nancy, and they had three daughters. From the 1990s onwards, the author divided his time between England and Llafranc. He told the Daily Express in 2010: "I love England but I don't like the English. I can´t bear the Brit culture. the hooliganism.”

First case of rabies since 1975

a pitbull that attacked four children and an adult in argés, Toledo province, on monday was found to have rabies, in the first recorded case of the disease in Spain since an outbreak in málaga in 1975. according to the animal’s vaccination record, it had received a jab in december before being taken to morocco, where it remained for four months. its owner, who was arrested on charges of criminal negligence resulting in injury, changed the animal’s vaccination history several times, the police said. The Castilla-La mancha regional government has ordered the compulsory vaccination of dogs, cats and ferrets within a 20-kilometre radius of argés.


Drunk teens' parents may be fined

The government is studying a proposal to fine the parents of drunken teenagers who are treated more than once in hospital emergency wards in the latest measure to clamp down on underage drinking. When he unveiled the proposal, Francisco Babin, the government delegate for the National drugs Plan (PNd), said: "Tolerating or assisting by inaction the repeated excessive consumption of alcohol is a form of child abuse because it affects their future abilities." He added: "We must not forget that alcohol kills brain cells." The number of underage drinkers treated in hospital casualty departments across Spain has more than doubled in ten years, according to a recent report being studied by the Health ministry. Half of Spain's 17 regions have already banned the "botellon" – when large groups of young people gather in parks or plazas to share cheap shop-bought alcoholic drinks and socialise through the night.

World News Mandela's condition serious but stable As former President Nelson Mandela battled a recurrent lung infection, many of his compatriots began to prepare themselves for a world without their internationally revered 94year-old leader. On Monday his family began to gather at his bedside. Visitors included Mr Mandela's ex-wife, Winnie MadikizelaMandela. The leader's eldest daughter, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, has returned to South Africa from Argentina, where she is the ambassador. His wife, Graca Machel,

cancelled a scheduled appearance in London on Saturday to remain at her husband's bedside. In a statement, the government said: "President Jacob Zuma reiterates his call for South Africa to pray for Madiba and the family during this time." Madiba is Mr Mandela's clan name. The foundation led by retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu also issued a statement describing Mr Mandela as an "extraordinary gift". "As the beloved father of our nation, Nelson Mandela once again endures the ravages of

time in hospital," the foundation said. "Our prayers are for his comfort and his dignity." Mr Mandela has been in intensive care since he was admitted to hospital on Saturday, for the third time this year. In December, he spent 18 days undergoing treatment for a lung infection and gallstones. Nelson Mandela served as president from 1994 to 1999. He was previously imprisoned for 27 years, and is believed to have suffered damaged lungs while working in a prison quarry. He contracted

tuberculosis in the 1980s while being held in jail on Robben Island. He retired from public life in 2004 and has been rarely seen in public since.

Riot police storm Thousands flee Istanbul square flood-hit areas

Turkish riot police moved into Istanbul's Taksim Square – which has been occupied by antigovernment protesters for close to two weeks – early on Tuesday morning, firing tear gas and rubber bullets. Many protesters fled from the square into adjoining Gezi Park, where others have been camping. Some activists responded by hurling fireworks, fire bombs and stones at police. The unrest began after police moved to suppress environmental protests over the redevelopment of Gezi Park on May 31st.

The protests then widened, with demonstrators accusing Mr Erdogan's government of becoming increasingly authoritarian and trying to impose conservative Islamic values on a secular state. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to meet the protest organisers on Wednesday. Istanbul Governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu said the police had no intention of breaking up the protest in Gezi Park. Three people have died and more than 5,000 have been injured since the protests began.

Some 23,000 people were forced to leave their homes in the east German city of Magdeburg after a dam burst on the flood-swollen River Elbe. Although water levels in Magdeburg were reported to be receding on Monday, the city and areas of the country further north remain on high alert. In Hungary, 1,200 people had to leave their homes but flood defences in the capital Budapest appeared to have held. At least 19 people have died in the floods in Central Europe. Meanwhile, parts

of Poland's capital Warsaw were flooded on Sunday after hours of heavy rain. The authorities in Germany are investigating an anonymous letter threatening attacks on several dams. A spokesman said the motive behind the threats is not known, but the threat is being taken seriously. Analysts say the damage will cost billions of euros to clean up. Chancellor Angela Merkel is planning a crisis meeting with leaders of Germany's regions on how to share the bill.

In may, maduro accused colombian politicians, led by former President Alvaro Uribe, of plotting to kill him. Uribe, a critic of defunct president Hugo chavez, dismissed the accusations. rodriguez told journalists that weapons, ammunition and fake uniforms of the venezuelan army were seized from the alleged plotters.

Europe braced for air traffic strike Air-traffic controllers in France began a three-day strike on Tuesday to protest against eU plans to create a single european airspace. They said the Single european Sky (SeS) project will affect public safety and their working conditions. Strikes and walkouts are expected to spread across europe on Wednesday. The european commission, which drafts eU laws, estimates that inefficiencies in the way europe's air traffic is managed add 42 km to the average flight. It wants to centralise air-traffic controls, rather than leave each member state to monitor its own skies. The commission says this could triple the region's airspace capacity, cut costs and reduce delays. GermAny

Bank clerk's billion-euro ‘sleep error’

A labour court has ruled that a bank supervisor was unfairly sacked for missing a multi-million-euro error by a colleague who fell asleep during a financial transaction in April last year. The clerk was transferring €64.20 when he dozed off with his finger on the keyboard, resulting in a transfer of €222,222,222.22. His supervisor was fired for allegedly failing to check the transaction. But the court heard that she had checked 812 documents for mistakes that day, with most taking just over a second of scrutiny. The judges ruled that there had been no malicious intent on her behalf, and that she should have received a warning. They ordered the bank to reinstate the supervisor, saying her work contract could not be terminated.

There were more than a few smiles when it was revealed that a Police Community Support Officer in West Yorkshire accidentally handcuffed himself to a petrol pump while filling up a police van with petrol.

Sir Mervyn’s farewell to Bank of England Outgoing Governor of the Bank of England Sir Mervyn King has said that there are good reasons to suppose that a gentle recovery is underway in Britain and he has welcomed his successor, Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney, describing him as “safe hands”.

Sir Mervyn has been critical of the banking industry in Britain, but when Mr Carney starts next month the Bank of England will have a new role as it takes over responsibility for regulating Britain’s banks.

It took the officer several minutes to unlock himself. British Transport Police refused to identify the officer but urged other officers to make sure they stowed their equipment away correctly.

G8 riots cause police standoff in Soho

A strong police presence, including riot vans, was deployed in London yesterday amid demonstrations ahead of the G8 conference. More than 100 officers were in a standoff at a reported squat in Beak Street, Soho occupied by anti-G8 protesters. The group StopG8 had planned a "Carnival Against Capitalism" ahead of the summit of world leaders in Northern Ireland next week.

At press time some scuffles had broken out between the police and protesters, and it was reported that six people had been arrested.

Police liaison officers have told people occupying the building in Beak Street that they will be

removed and searched. They will then be held while the building itself is searched.

Businesses including hedge funds and banks in central London are understood to have warned staff to take precautions after similar protests in recent years led to violent clashes with police. Ed McClaran tweeted: "Big G8 protest outside our offices today. People chaining themselves to railings. Why they are in the West End and not the City, I don't know." The




Protester wriggles out of policemans grip

world's eight wealthiest countries, including Russian president Vladimir Putin and German chancellor Angela

Merkel, are due to meet at the luxury Lough Erne resort in County Fermanagh for the twoday conference next week.

Bomber raised from Channel The RAF Museum says it is "absolutely delighted" that the fragile aircraft wreckage has been successfully raised from the English Channel.

It is the last surviving World War Two German Dornier 17 and was shot down on August 26th, 1940.

Recent poor weather and technical problems had hampered previous attempts to raise the wreckage, but divers were able to exploit a window of calm weather on Monday.

Gay marriage divides Tories

Gay marriage will be made legal in Britain following the backing of the House of Lords, but it is an issue that has badly split the Conservative Party, over half its MPs opposing the move in the House of Commons.

There will, however, be changes to the legislation to offer churches further protection should they refuse to conduct samesex ceremonies.

A few fragments of the fragile plane dropped off as it was being recovered. But the museum, which has run the project, said divers will recover them in the next few days and they will added to the main body of the aircraft.

The plane is an unimpressive, rusty, seaweed-clad shell at the moment, but experts at the Sir Michael Beetham Conservation Centre in Shropshire will be tasked with restoring it to its former glory.

cabinet. Gabriela explained that the white powder was a homeopathic treatment for idiopathic myelitis, which makes walking difficult. But the police insisted on carrying out a “narcotest”. “If it turns red, it’s cocaine; blue means heroin,” an officer told them.

The small sample of powder gradually took on a bluish hue. “Heroin,” the officers said. Gabriela took a spoonful of the powder in water every morning and Fernando asked the police to take a sample of her blood, but they never did. The cornerstone of the prosecution’s case was that the substance had been imported from Uruguay when it is readily available in Spain. Thus the police deduced it was heroin. Gabriela and Fernando were charged and bailed. Their passports were confiscated, meaning they

could not go on a planned trip to Uruguay. The press ran the story about “220 grams of heroin” being intercepted in Motril. Fernando’s family in Catalonia believed the reports and stopped talking to the couple, who were eventually on bail for a total of three months while the sample awaited analysis at the police labs in Málaga.

When the sample finally reached Málaga, it took less than a week to confirm that there was no trace of narcotic in the powder. Gabriela met the police chief who had led the operation during a courtroom visit to retrieve her jars of power.She asked him if it had never occurred to him to apologise. He replied: “That’s what you get for getting medicine sent from Uruguay.” The couple are now trying to get their police records expunged.

Record number of flamingos Thanks to a very wet March, there are an estimated 22,000 pairs of flamingos nesting on the Fuente de Piedra lagoon just north of Antequera, 1,500 pairs more than in 2011.

The police had been following the couple for over a week and believed that the package in Motril was the final piece of evidence. They were escorted to their house, where a jar of the same substance contained in the package sat in a bathroom




The trouble began on July 10th, 2010, when Gabriela González, 45, and her husband Fernando, a mechanic, left their home at dawn to travel to the post office in Motril, five kilometres away, to collect a package her brother had sent from Uruguay. An attendant asked for their IDs and disappeared into an office. When she returned she motioned to two plain clothes policemen who had been standing behind Gabriela, who was handcuffed. Gabriela was told she was under arrest for drug trafficking. Fernando had also been detained outside.

was dry and the flamingos had to lay their eggs elsewhere. So far, 14,000 chicks have been born, with more on the way.

The Provincial government's environment delegate, Jose Luis Ruiz Espejo said they would probably be ringed in August. He said the lagoon was one of the most important in Europe and its flamingo colony was the most important in the Mediterranean.

'Isabel' series filmed in Granada’s Alhambra

Michelle Jenner and Rodolfo Sancho were received like royalty in Granada on Monday, which is actually what they are on the TV screen. Jenner plays Isabel la Catolica and Sancho plays her husband, Fernando of Aragon, in the series 'Isabel' which has been a huge success for state television TVE1. The first thing they and the rest of the cast did on arrival was to lay wreathes on the tombs of the original Catholic Monarchs in Granada Cathedral. They were then given a guided tour by Royal chaplain Manuel Reyes before Mayor Jose Torres Hurtado appointed the two stars and director Ignacio Corrales the city's Honorary Ambassadors.

Mayor Torres wished them successful filming and thanked them for their contribution to the city's economy (some 100 locals were employed as extras), its prestige and imparting knowledge about culture. Jauma Banacolocha, the director of Diagonal TV which is making the series for

TVE1, said it was a privilege to be able to film in the location where history occurred, "which happens very rarely".

Filming took place in the Alhambra on Tuesday and Wednesday, the first time a film crew had worked inside the monument in 25 years. Most of the magnificent Moorish Palace is off limits to visitors to prevent its further deterioration.

Toll prices up

until the end of September, motorists will have to pay more to use the (aP-7) toll road between fuengirola and Guadiaro in cadiz province – €15.4, or €5.95 more than in the winter. the most expensive stretch will be between fuengirola and Marbella –– €7.30 – followed by the stretch between Marbella and estepona – €4.95. the final stretch to Guadiaro costs €3.30. the rise has been caused mainly by the fact that the Public Works Ministry has reduced its subsidies for the toll roads and the hike in iVa (Vat). last year, traffic on the toll road dropped by between two and six per cent a month. in the current economic climate, the drop is expected to continue.

the Junta de andalucia's Health department has launched a campaign aimed at increasing bone marrow donors, from the 2,300 registered last year to 4,500. Bone marrow transplants are the only alternative treatment for some cases of leukaemia, certain tumours and blood diseases, but only 30 per cent of the patients who need a transplant can find a match among their relatives. their only hope is to register with the international bone marrow network, redmo, which has 20 million people registered already. Since the Junta launched the campaign earlier this year, 2,524 new donors have registered. a Junta spokesman said that if this rate continues, the region should be able to supply all the patients in need of a bone marrow transplant by the end of the year.

The Local Memo from Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

Shifting wind


seem to have hit the nail on the head when I wrote last week that I got the impression the Left was beginning to act in a more responsible way. Shortly afterwards, the online publication El Confidencial Digital reported that Socialist Party leader Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba had decided to stop the party's leftward drift because it wasn't getting the desired result. The Socialists lost the 2011 general election big time – 6.9 million votes, down from 11.3 million in 2008; 110 seats in 2011, down from 169 four years earlier. The Partido Popular got a solid majority of 186 seats in 2011 with 10.8 million votes. The difference in the Socialist results can be explained by the fact that many disgruntled voters went over to the radical Communist-dominated United Left or the more moderate left-wing party Union, Progress & Democracy, who are still thanking former PM Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero for causing such a stampede in their direction.


o in what we could call "the early days of the cuts", it seemed as if millions of Spaniards were taking to the streets in protest and the Socialists thought they could turn this to their advantage and recover the three million or so votes they will need if they want to win the next election. But it didn't work out that way. The media, especially the TV, made it look as if millions were taking to the streets when in fact the figures show that less than a million people turned out for most of the coordinated protests across the country. The so-called siege of Parliament at the end of April seems to have put a damper on it all.


he police had infiltrated the groups involved and discovered that the main instigators were the anti-system groups who planned to turn a peaceful protest violent. The non-violent groups – the majority – stayed away and on the day there were almost as many police as protesters: some 1,400 riot police versus around 1,500 protesters. It was an absolute fiasco and seems to have taken the wind out of the violent Left's sails.


owever, Rubalcaba risks losing the more moderate Socialists, who are in the majority, if he doesn't steer the party back towards the centre and, according to El Confidencial Digital, that's what he's decided to do.


ut that's only one half of the story. If things have calmed down it's because Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is winning over more and more people to his side – not so much here in Spain as in the EU and the IMF. His drastic cuts have proved he's serious about bringing the country's deficit to heel – so much so that even the Iron Chancellor Merkel seems to be willing to cut him some slack.


he Left knew that Rajoy's cuts stood a good chance of getting the economy back on track some time next year which could lead to his re-election in 2015, so their only chance of seizing power was to derail his government when it was at its weakest, when the financial markets, the Daily Telegraph, the Economist, Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, published nothing but doom and gloom about Spain.


ut the ploy didn't work. There are fewer protesters on the streets and everyone will be on holiday in July and August – everyone except Rajoy and his inner circle, I suspect. Rajoy is finally beginning to look more relaxed in public and is even talking more to the press he previously shunned. That's because he can see light at the end of the tunnel, but he knows he can't rest until the country is finally out into the clear daylight on the other side.


ajoy is not a blinkered ideologist, spouting his dogma left, right and centre as his opponents are doing. He's working away quietly in the background to set the economy on a solid foundation – and probably praying to God every night that he's doing the right things. Only time will tell, but right now it looks as if time could be on his side.


he other thing is that Spaniards aren't stupid and are probably as horrified as I have been, watching a totally treacherous, unpatriotic Left trying to bring down a democratically elected government while its leader did everything in his power to ward off an EU bail-out – which is what they wanted. The psychological shock could have been so great that it really would have driven a majority of Spaniards into to the streets to demand an early election – which the Left expected to win, of course. Sorry, sweeties, better luck next time!

Constitutional shifts Writes for the English language version of


he ideological shift on the nation’s Constitutional Court (TC), with the appointments of more conservative justices to replace outgoing liberals, was an expected move and could help Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s government obtain legal backing for some of his controversial changes to health care, abortion and pension reforms. Last Friday, the Cabinet named two nominees to the bench, Pedro González-Trevijano, a law professor and dean of the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, and High Court Judge Enrique López, to replace liberal magistrates Manuel Aragón and Pablo Pérez Tremps, whose terms of office expired on Sunday.


he General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) legal watchdog also put forward the names of José Antonio Xiol, a liberal who heads the civil law chamber at the Supreme Court, and Santiago Martínez Vares, a justice serving on the Supreme Court’s administrative chamber.


he Rajoy government has needed this shift for some time. It came a little late for the Partido Popular (PP), which had taken on the previous Socialist government for its stance on gay marriage. The PP had filed an appeal with the court in late 2005, which wasn’t resolved until earlier this year with the TC’s support for same-sex marriages. Since then, the Vatican has been pressuring the PP to change the law again but the government knows that this would be a highly unpopular move seeing the number of countries that are passing laws in support of gay marriages and unions. Even the US Supreme Court is expected to make its long awaited decision, which by all accounts is expected to be a favourable one, on the issue this month.


ut the PP’s proposed controversial changes to Spain’s abortion law, which are being spearheaded by Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, may get the court’s backing. Ruiz-Gallardón wants to go back to the old law as regards limiting the number of weeks when a woman can interrupt her pregnancy and under what circumstances. Profeminist groups have been vocal about the changes and are gearing up for a fight with the government over abortion.


he TC is also studying an appeal by the Socialist Party over the Madrid government’s privatisation of six area hospitals. While arguments against turning over managements to private operators rage on, the PP government of Mayor Ana Botella has already pre-selected three companies, including a US-based

hospital management firm, to run the health centres. This could be one argument that the Socialist Party could lose.


he long-expected explosive battle over pension reform is also expected to make its way to the TC in the coming weeks. A group of experts on Friday handed over their long awaited recommendations to the government calling on freezes of pensions during economic crises, and to decouple the current system from inflation. So, instead of basing periodic hikes on the actual Consumer Price Index (IPC), pension raises will only be given out in tune with the health of the government’s finances. The special committee working on this reform wants the government to fashion these changes into law so that they could go into effect as early as next year. The Rajoy government has already promised Brussels that it would have the law ready by September. But there is going to be a long fight. Labour groups and some opposition parties have said they will be taking their case before the TC.


onetheless, this shift in ideology tilted towards the PP may turn a once-respected institution like the TC into a rubber stamp for the Rajoy government.


Disobedient dog owners

here is a hearty idea coming from Brunete, a town some 40 kilometres from Madrid. It seems town officials had been hot under the collar over uncooperative residents who refuse to pick up after their dogs. So they hired an advertising firm to help them come up with creative ways for getting disobedient citizens to clean up after their pets. The novel idea is known as the “poo-telegram.” Here is how it works. Volunteers watch carefully over residents during peak walk hours. When they see an owner failing to pick up the poo, they go up to them to strike up a conversation. Through their chat they find out the name of the dog and perhaps even the owner's name and where he/she lives. The next day a small box arrives at the home of the unhygienic dog lover containing the same doggy poo and a notice warning that the next time they can face fines of up to €300 if they don't pick up the droppings. It turns out that this idea has been a masterful one. Town officials (I am not sure how they calculate this) say that there is 70 per cent less poo on the streets and sidewalks than before. What a nice dog story. Follow me on Twitter @martingdelfin

Community News Golden anniversary and donations

Julie Wood of Age Concern receiving the cheque from Margaret Loughran

Members of Age Concern Estepona enjoyed a very special evening on Saturday 25th May when they celebrated the Golden Wedding Anniversary of members Vic and Margaret Loughran who were accompanied by their close family members. There were about 100 people present who were treated to a Hog Roast supper provided by Vic and Margaret. Dancing followed to the excellent

sound of varied music by Daniela.

A presentation of €500 – collected from members’ ticket sales – was made the following week to the local branch of Age Concern.

A gift of a two-night all inclusive break to Hotel Cortijo Salinas at Zahara de la Sierra was given to Vic and Margaret by club members. It was indeed a brilliant night all round.

Passports - five million applications each year Embracing change, the British government in an attempt to introduce clarity and a better “brand recognition” has renamed the government agency in charge of issuing passports. It is no longer the IPS, but now has the regal title of H.M.P.O. – Her Majesty's Passport Office or perhaps Humpo. Although some government websites and answerphones still refer to the IPS as the agency for doing this, that and the other when it comes to passports, this should change with time.

Forms and websites usually just want to know where a passport was issued not by whom. Even if you live in Spain and have had your UK passport issued here in the last 10 years, the smart answer is usually “United Kingdom” as most airlines

and websites are geared up to accept this answer. A Pandora's box of possible answers to “issuing authority” could be ESP, FCO, UKPA or IPS but not GBR or Spain but be assured from now on in the answer is H.M.P.O. Except it doesn’t say that on your new passport – at the time of going to press – it still says IPS (Identity and Passport Service).

A British passport always remains the property of Her Majesty's Government. It bears the Royal Coat of Arms and is issued under Royal Prerogative. It is a privilege to have a passport, not a right and if you upset the wrong people “they” can take it off you or cancel it. The new agency name with the inclusion of ‘Her Majesty’s’ in the title is designed to reflect this and “ make the service more easily recognisable to British citizens at home and abroad”.

Alternatively and very loosely speaking, you could say “Humpo” is the new customer friendly face of Nick Clegg and David.

Whereas IPS is the abandoned legacy of a defeated naughty Labour party (2010) – the victors write the spin if not the history – who, through a merger with United Kingdom Passport Service and the Home Office Identity Cards Programme actually did seek to introduce ,“bullying and intrusive” ID cards. Something that probably 99% of expats living abroad, left or right wing would dearly love to have, especially here since the demise of the Spanish photo-card “residencia”.

So it's probably all very political and cost quite a lot of cash. Immigration Minister Mark Harper ... “On coming to power, this government consigned identity cards and the intrusive National Identity Service to history. The new name of ‘HM Passport Office’ reflects the fact that the organisation is no longer responsible for government policy on identity but continues to provide a gold-plated passport service to British nationals in the UK and abroad.” …. Hear, hear!

Either way those are the new rules – ID cards and the Labour government are out and new passports, like fish are expensive and come with chips. The very last passport to be validated through Madrid, Spain – after a recorded 77 years of service – was ceremoniously issued last week by the Ambassador, Giles Paxman himself to a young lady of British, Spanish and coincidently Irish extraction, coincidently because as of June 2013, all British passports renewed from Spain go to Belfast in Northern Ireland, the new home of Humpo.

Golf shop’s popularity grows Marbella Golf Classic, the Swedish-owned golf shop in Nueva Andalucía, is delighted to announce that their sales have increased substantially in the last 12 months – despite the crisis that casts its dark shadow over the country. "It's gratifying that so many nice customers visit us in sunshine as well as in rain," says the store's owner Ewa Lindberg. The shop, located next to Centro Plaza, has in recent times, undergone a facelift; walls have become brighter, more mirrors have been set up and new ways to showcase the fine line of clothing and Ecco shoes have been installed. This has made the store – always welcoming in the past – even lighter and and pleasanter to visit. One of the shop's enjoyable and regular events is their popular coffee morning. Ewa says: "In these times, everyone is welcome to come and have a cup of coffee and eat a piece of cake, and it's a great opportunity to see all the new summer stock." Let them know you are interested and they will put you on the mailing list to contact for the next opportunity.

On the shelves and hangers at Marbella Classic Golf you will find clothing from Masters, Abacus, Daily, Alberto, Röhnisch, Nike, Ping, Green Lamb and

Dave does it again!

Dave Gilbert from Alhaurin hit the headlines last year when, aged 78, he jumped out of a plane on a sponsored parachute jump in aid of cystic fibrosis – and found the whole experience quite enjoyable!

professional Freddy Verleyen and taking part in the monthly league competitions held at Finca Hiedra in Coin.

At the end of last month The Wild West came to The Natural Horsemanship Association of Coin when the last day of their natural horsemanship league competition was combined with a fancy dress fundraising event to help support their latest rescue – Misteriosa (Mizzy), a five-year-old grey mare destined to die from a neglected wound and starvation.

The Lone Ranger was among the celebrities who took part, looking a little more grizzled than his black and white TV counterpart in the 'fifties but still proving the hero of the hour. Hiding under the ten-gallon hat and black mask was, of course, Dave, now in his eightieth year, who was presented with a trophy and rosette for the most improved student – there is no stopping this Old Timer! Indian braves and squaws rubbed shoulders with cowboys and cowgirls – Cowgirl Barbie was definitely older and less glamorous than her Mattel counterpart but equally resplendent in pink; one Apache brave bore more than a passing resemblance to The News' roving football supporter in a feathered head-dress rather than a Malaga

scarf; Deputy Dawg had left his furry head behind (understandable in view of the heat); and the owner of the Saloon, Madame Fifi cut an exotic dash as a shady Honky Tonk Woman from Paris!

A great deal of fun was had by participants and spectators, followed by an impressive demonstration by Freddy with his talented horses. Principe the Andalucian would definitely have given Hi Ho Silver! a run for his money all those years ago.

The day was hosted by Dawn and Jeff Mason to introduce more people to the concept of natural horsemanship and to raise money to help pay for the care and keep of Mizzy who is likely to be at Finca Hiedra for a lengthy stay; not only until she is well and strong enough to start gentle work but until she has completed sufficient training with love, language and leadership to be rehomed with a loving life partner. Time, patience, correct knowledge and expert care can work miracles.

The day raised 180 euros and more events are in the planning stages. To read about Mizzy, her supporters and friends go to or follow on Facebook, The Natural Horsemanship Association of Coin. by Jean Joss

If you have any Birthwort (Dutchman’s Pipe) or any plants from the Aristolochia family in your garden take a close look. In among the foliage, eggs or caterpillars of the Spanish Festoon may be lurking.

The Spanish Festoon is a wonderfully exotic butterfly from the Swallowtail family (Papilionidae). On the

wing from March to early June and in Andalucia a second brood appears in

the Autumn, the variation in wing pattern is considerable and a great number of races and forms have been described. It occurs in rough uncultivated places and on hillsides and mountains up to 1500m. The adult is a regular visitor to my garden and ever year I have eggs and caterpillars, however, I have yet to find a chrysalis.

tall spikes of yellow flowers majestically rise above the already brown vegetation. The orchids are also over but I recorded a tally of six different orchids in the area of the proposed La Mota golf course on the Coin to Mijas road. A first for me was the Tongue Orchid, a rather plain orchid but nevertheless an exciting find. Many of you have shown a keen interest in orchids and hopefully next season we can get together for an orchid hunt.

More Mijas magic for one and all The Mijas Festival had their cake and then ate it all last weekend. The Mijas International Festival proved to be yet another big hit for the Mijas Town Hall Foreign Residents Department and the people of Mijas. The event, one of several in Mijas this year, started last Friday evening and passed smoothly through to the finale on Sunday evening, with no end of nationalities, varied entertainment and tasty food. The prize piece of which was a delicious cream and fruit cake on Sunday afternoon or rather several cakes, enough for well over a thousand visitors – which

was lucky as some definitely went around twice for seconds!

As usual attendance was high and the entertainment excellent. The TAPAS Choir (far

South American traditional dance troops in full costume and a lively Celtic show on Sunday evening. With many more, far too many to mention, in between. All greatly appreciated and applauded for their talents.

Ana Skou, head of the department said, “We are all more than delighted with the festival and I'm quite emotional to have seen so many friends come together for this special 25th International Festival, especially those who have been with us every year since the start.” Ana with a big smile went on to express a big thank

A Good Day to Die Hard

Release date: June 4th

Director: John Moore Starring: Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch

MOVIeS tO  WatC h  OUt  fOr

af t er ear t h Directed by M Night Shyamalan Starring: Will Smith, Jaden Smith Director Shyamalan had a glittering start to his career and Sixth Sense will hold its own in the pantheon of memorable movie twists. But his career has taken a nosedive in recent years with some real turkeys like The Happening and The Last Airbender so a lot was riding on his latest offering.

And of course Will Smith has helped to save the world before now so maybe the actor could pull out all the stops and bring his easy charm to bear to help resurrect Shyamalan’s faltering career – or maybe not.

The plot is simple enough. One thousand years ago humanity fled Earth after doing its bit to destroy the planet, and now inhabits a new solar system. One of the peace keepers in this world is Cypher Paige (Will Smith) who plays a bad tempered General whose sulky son Kitai (Jaden Smith) accompanies him on a mission. But the craft crash lands on Earth, Cypher is critically injured

and with two broken legs cannot move. So it is down to Kitai to undertake a perilous journey across uncharted territory in order to activate the beacon that is their only hope of rescue. Along the way the boy faces unwelcoming terrain and the dangerously evolved creatures that now rule the roost on the planet – oh, and there’s also a mystery alien creature that escaped from the hold of the stricken craft. As Kitai tackles the dangers before him Cypher watches his progress on a monitor on the crashed ship and the father-son bond begins to grow and develop as Kitai tries to do what he can to save his father.

The Smith family are linked with Scientology which, according to those in the know, informs the way the story is told. But despite some very harsh critical reviews, the general feeling is that the movie does not turn into the shambolic mess that John Travolta’s Battlefield Earth did. Smith Snr’s charisma is on a low light, which is a shame but take it at its basic level, a survival story in which a young boy comes of age in the face of adversity, and you can while away a couple of hours at the movies. Whether it will prove to be the last nail in the Shyamalan coffin remains to be seen and US box office returns are not looking good.

John McClane and his estranged son Jack team up to protect a government informant in Moscow, and thwart a major crime in Chernobyl in this sequel from director John Moore. Russian politics are in tatters when veteran detective McClane shows up in the nation's capital, and learns that his son is working undercover to protect Komarov – a notorious whistleblower who some powerful people would like to see silenced. Protecting Komarov won't be easy, even for the cop who's single-handedly defeated small armies of terrorists, and the sharp-

shooting son he's never known. Meanwhile, when the fearless father and son catch wind of a deadly plot unfolding in Chernobyl, they face the fight of their lives in one of the most hostile landscapes known to man.

For your personal birth chart please contact: Perhaps if you had made different choices you may have ended up with a different ARIES result to the one you are faced with now. You could be feeling slightly confused as to how to redirect your attention and focus in order to change the situation that you currently find yourself in. The key is in trusting what you don’t know and what you can’t see as there is far more going on behind the scenes than you are aware of. March 21st Information will come to light after the weekend that will allow you to gain more clarity April 19th on what your role really is.


May 21st June 21st

The changes that are about to be put into play will last for a long time, giving you a renewed sense of self-confidence and freedom of expression, without fear of ridicule or worry. In fact this week may bring the unusual into your world where others are not behaving in a predictable manner at all; however, you tend to thrive under changeable conditions and will rise to the occasion. It will be wise to remain as busy as possible this week as there are powerful waves of personal emotions to deal with and it will be unhealthy for you to over think things.

June 22nd July 22nd

There are a multitude of different personal experiences coming your way and as long as you are being true to yourself it could feel as though you are being given some sort of divine guidance. New contacts, places and information come to the fore and inspire your inner creativity. Others sense the changes occurring as you start to glow. Take the lead with courage and conviction and take into consideration what is best for all concerned. By the weekend fun and social activities call you. The universe is trying to get you to move on, to become a lot more weightless and free.

July 23rd August 22nd

Shortly, you will be entering a period where you can have a breather; some time to relax, during these moments of contemplation, many insights and breakthroughs could occur that will lead you to make changes to your planned route. There may still be some obstacles to overcome but these challenges are there to test your commitment to a certain situation, perhaps it is all about earning your right to be there. You could question your current beliefs at this time, the key is to remain open, be ready and flexible so that you can embrace changes.

August 23rd September 22nd

Your emotions and passions are very close to the surface, ready to express themselves in a dynamic way; therefore, it is no surprise that love and romance is high on your agenda and on your mind. Temptations are likely to appear and it will be up to you to decide your course. However, within an existing relationship the way you relate to each other may need spicing up. Do something spontaneous and surprise them, it may rekindle a fire, it may feel a bit awkward at first but it will liberate the relationship in the best of ways. This is a great time to take on difficult tasks and excel.





Are you getting dizzy Libra? It could feel as though you are still running around in circles with something and still not getting anywhere, as though you are just not gaining any ground. A new approach might be just what the doctor ordered, for instance, if you have been diplomatic then go for the direct and ‘straight to the point’ approach and vice versa. If you keep doing something the same way you stand a good chance of getting the same results. Remember that sometimes September 23rd it isn’t about keeping the peace; it is about communicating the truth. nd October 22


October 23rd November 21st

You are not one to waste words; however, it may not be so easy to find the right words this time that equal the depth of what you feel right now. You could find that you get slightly overwhelmed with so much inner dialogue that you do not know where to begin. Perhaps writing it down as it comes into your mind will help enabling you to simplify your feelings before you communicate this to another. Due to the distraction of your inner world, make sure you pay close attention to the details that are going on around you. Double check all facts and figures.


This is one of those times when you need a break from the stress and heaviness of routine; they say a change is as good as a rest so if you can’t rest then make sure you do something different this week. Others will be looking at you for inspiration as your personality is loaded with charm and charisma right now. Your powers of attraction are second to none and you will find yourself quickly November 22nd - becoming the centre of attention. There could be a leadership role in the offing December 21st so keep your ears peeled for opportunities or challenges coming your way.


December 22nd January 19th


January 20th February 18th


February 19th March 20th

It is all about security right now, you just want to know you have a stable base from which you can direct your life with ease. The main objective is not making things more difficult or complicated than they need to be, as with all the stress of late, it is easy to blow things out of proportion. Avoid distractions and construct a plan by level of importance this will help you to keep moving forward. Take the time to pay close attention to details and take care of all the small issues as well; this will help to set things up for a secure future. It is time to put your own needs first for a change, you spend so much of your time giving to others it is easy to forget yourself. This week there is going to be a lot going on, places to go and people to see, things to do, just make sure you are not being hurried into taking actions that you may later regret. There will be a lot of choices to make, decisions where two options seem equally suitable, just take your time, remember there is no rush. This is your time to dream, it is when dreams can become the real deal. This lift that is happening right now can strengthen your most intimate connections guiding you towards deeper in ways of relating. There are visible improvements with your relationship towards yourself and others. By the weekend this energy will build and you will become more alert of your surroundings well able to view past events with clarity and objectivity. This is a great time to spend with family and friends.

Add 8 tbsp cold water, then bring everything together with your hands until just combined. Roll into a ball and use straight away or chill for up to two days. The pastry can also be frozen for up to a month. 2. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a round 5cm larger than a 25cm tin. Use your rolling pin to lift it up, then drape over the tart case so there is an overhang of pastry on the sides. Using a small ball of pastry scraps, push the pastry into the corners of the tin. Chill in the fridge or freezer for 20 mins. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. 3. In a small roasting tin, drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put the tomatoes on a low shelf of the oven.

4. Lightly prick the base of the tart with a fork, line the tart case with a large circle of greaseproof paper or foil, then fill with baking beans. Blindbake the tart for 20 mins, remove the paper and beans, then continue to cook for 5-10 mins until biscuit brown. 5. When you remove the tart case from the oven, take out the tomatoes, too. 6. While the tart is cooking, beat the eggs in a large bowl. Gradually add the cream, then stir in the basil and season. When the case is ready, sprinkle half the cheese over the base, scatter over the tomatoes, pour over the cream mix, then finally scatter over the rest of the cheese. Bake for 20-25 mins until set and golden brown. Leave to cool in the case, trim the edges of the pastry, then remove from the tin. Scatter over the remaining basil and serve in slices.

Changing the Meaning by Adding a Suffix


April 20th May 20th

This is the week to be open and honest, if you are not openly sharing how you feel then you will be missing an opportunity to strengthen all of your relations. So much tends to go unspoken, when feelings are not shared then assumptions are made and projections cantake the place of the truth. You could find that you are privy to secret information that will give you a huge advantage. If you are in a partnership then make sure that both of your needs are being met within your decisions. Money matters are set to improve. Do not take impulsive or reckless actions that you may regret later on.

A while ago we looked at how you can reduce something in size by adding ito or ita to the end of a word. Una casa - a house but una casita - a little house Un perro - a dog and un perrito - a little dog. We have also seen how adding ísimo or ísima to a word can make it more extreme : Rápido - fast and rapidísimo - very, very fast Lento - slow. Lentísimo - very, very slow. This week we are going to look at another add-on which changes the meaning of the word onto which it is added. The add-on (suffix) is azo. It serves two main purposes. Firstly – by adding it to the end of the word it can make the object bigger or more important Un animalazo - Not simply a large animal, perhaps more a great brute of an animal. Un generalazo - an important general Un jovenazo - a big lad as in the sense of a strapping youth. Talentazo - immense talent Un niño buenazo - a really good kid Secondly, adding azo to the end of a word can change the word to mean hitting with that word. For example un puño is a fist while un puñetazo is a blow with the fist. Una puerta we know is a door and un portazo is a slamming of the door. Ella salió de la casa dando un portazo - she left the house, slamming the door. Un látigo is a whip and un látigazo is the crack of the whip. Una flecha is an arrow and if you suffer un flechazo it could be that you have been hit with an arrow. It could also mean that you have fallen in love at first sight. This language learning is not always as straightforward as we might like but poco a poco vamos lejos – Little by little we'll go far. Hasta la próxima - until next time Valerie

Slathering on sunscreen Walking versus running slows down wrinkles Using sunscreen every day can slow down the development of wrinkles and sagging skin, according to new study.

Dermatologists have been telling people for years to use sunscreen to prevent aging, but this is the first study to show an actual effect on the appearance of skin.

Researchers chose to study Australians whose exposure to sun is a fact of life. They asked 900 white people aged 25 to 55 to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen all the time over four and a half years. Most of the participants had fair skin, and nearly all burned in the sun.

Nearly all were using sunscreen for at least some of the time, and twothirds wore hats in the sun. Half of the participants were told to continue their usual practices, and the other half to slather on sunscreen daily. The


researchers found that the people who had used sunscreen every day had noticeably more resilient and smoother skin than those who continued their usual practices.

The study also included nearly 900 people who were randomly assigned to take beta carotene, a nutritional supplement, to see if the supplement prevented skin ageing. It did not. The researchers said no one had done such a study before because the very idea is of asking hundreds of healthy people to agree to follow their assigned regimens for years was daunting.

The sunscreen used by those assigned to daily applications had a sun

protection factor, or SPF, of 15, which filters 92 per cent of the sun’s rays. Someone who would normally burn in 10 minutes would burn in 150 minutes with an SPF 15. This group even had their sunscreen bottles weighed to make sure they were using it.

Researchers in other countries were convinced by the results because, as one said, most studies of sun-damaged skin were conducted with mice, not people, and it was not clear whether the results would be the same.

The study did not address the question of whether people older than 55 would also have more youthful skin if they used sunscreen, the researchers said. After 55, the effects of ageing on skin begin to predominate, and they noted that the effects of ultraviolet light on skin are cumulative. They said it is not known how much sunscreen can help if people start to use it later in life, but advised using it anyway because it can protect against skin cancer. The sunscreen study was paid for by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. No sunscreen makers contributed.

Several new studies in the US have shown that the benefits of walking and running depend almost completely on what people hope to accomplish. For people wanting to control their weight, running wins by a mile.

In a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, and titled “Greater weight loss from running than walking,” researchers looked at survey data from 15,237 walkers and 32,215 runners enrolled in the National Runners and Walkers Health Study, conducted at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California.

Participants were asked about their weight, waist circumference, diets and typical weekly walking or running mileage both when they joined the study, and then again up to six years later. Most of the runners were thinner than the walkers when each joined the study, and stayed that way throughout.

Over the years, the runners maintained their body mass and waistlines

far better than the walkers. Running obviously burns up more calories but another study has shown that it also reduces appetite. In that study, nine experienced female runners and 10 committed female walkers reported to the exercise physiology lab at the University of Wyoming on two separate occasions, walking or running on a treadmill for an hour. Researchers monitored their total energy expenditure, and also drew blood from the volunteers to check for levels of certain hormones related to appetite. After both sessions, the volunteers were set free in a room with a laden buffet and told to eat at will. The

walkers turned out to be hungry, consuming about 50 calories more than they had burned during their hour-long treadmill stroll. The runners, on the other hand, picked at their food, taking in almost 200 fewer calories than they had burned while running.

The runners also proved after exercise to have significantly higher blood levels of a hormone called peptide YY, which has been shown to suppress appetite. The walkers did not have increased peptide YY levels; their appetites remained hearty. The researchers' advice: If you want to eat less, run first.

about a new traffic regulation that obliges them to use a helmet, statistics from the United States back the Spanish government's claim that helmets will reduce the number of head injuries.

According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, cycling accidents played a part in about 86,000 of the 447,000 sports-related head injuries treated in emergency rooms in 2009. Football accounted for 47,000 of those head injuries, and baseball for 38,394. The statistics also showed that cycling was also the leading cause of sports-related head

injuries in children under 14, causing 40,272 injuries, roughly double the number related to football (21,878). Doctors said that part of the reason is that cycling is so ubiquitous, but people are also more careless about taking precautions. Cyclists are also at high risk of colliding with motor vehicles, and when riders are not wearing helmets, such collisions frequently result in serious head injuries. For example, about 90 per cent of cyclists killed in the United States in 2009 were not wearing helmets. A majority were middle-aged men.

After a long battle with cancer ...

A fond farewell to a horse training legend … but he will never be forgotten in the racing world.

Sir Henry Cecil, 10-time champion Flat trainer, has died at the age of 70.

Responsible for 25 British Classic winners, Scottish-born Cecil was also the leading handler at Royal Ascot with a record 75 successes.

Cecil, who was knighted in 2011, battled cancer in his later years. Towards the end of his career, the Newmarket-based Cecil trained Frankel, officially the highest-ever rated racehorse after finishing his career unbeaten in 14 starts. Cecil was described as "the greatest trainer of all time" by racing broadcaster Derek

Thompson, champion National Hunt trainer Paul Nicholls called him "a true legend", while Newmarket racecourse said his contribution to racing would never be forgotten.

American rider Steve Cauthen, who enjoyed six highly successful years as a stable jockey at Warren Place, labelled Cecil "a genius". "He had a great sense of humour. He was a super intelligent guy and really knew how to place his horses," the 53year-old said. "He tried to have fun. The atmosphere during most of the time I was up at Warren Place was just fantastic."

Cecil first took out a training licence in 1969. He had his first British Classic win with Bolkonski in the 1975 renewal of the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, following up in the same race a year later with Wollow.

Both horses were ridden by Frankie Dettori's father, Gianfranco. Cecil married his one-time secretary Jane McKeown in 2008. He is survived by two children from his first marriage, Katie and Noel, and son Jake from his second marriage. Cecil's twin brother, David, died from cancer in 2000.

Last week’s Romeria in Coin showcased a kaleidoscope of different styles and fabrics, with amazingly few duplicates among the hundreds of swirling dresses in the cavalcade.

The shorter variety may not have looked quite as elegant as their full-length counterparts but proved much more practical to walk the five kilometres from the centre of town to the Ermita of the Virgen

de la Fuensanta on the old Monda road. And the children dressed as miniature adults stole the show as usual, whether on foot, horseback or in one of the many pony traps!

Mary Chapman Gardeners beware! Those huge variegated agave plants can be dangerous. My husband found out the hard way. We were given several striped babies about eight years ago and planted them out to form a hedge.

Thinking that they had actually got rather out of hand, we thought we would remove some of them – easier said than done, of course, since they are not exactly friendly plants! I had been snipping off the vicious spikes on the end of the fleshy leaves ever since someone told me they got

blood poisoning from being pricked in a vein. Armed with heavy duty clippers and gloves I was about to start the cull when my husband had what he thought was a brilliant idea. "I'll take the chain saw to them, it will be much quicker."

Five minutes later leaves and pulp were spraying all around the garden, six minutes later my husband was screaming as the pulp was burning his skin. He dropped everything and shot into the shower! The water helped but didn't stop the

At the end of last year you published an article (which coincided with the loss of the Channel 5 signal) which informed your readers that the BBC,ITV and Channel 4 signal would also be lost and a date in December was given when this would start to take place, however this date came and went with no more channels being lost.

Since this time the only information I have read on the matter has been put out by satellite installation companies who appear to have "jumped on the

bandwagon" and made the most of this suspect information to "feather their own nests". One of the companies is offering an alternative system with one price before the change and another more expensive price after the change.

It would be appreciated if you could give your readers an independent update on the current situation because most people I know think that the whole situation has been fabricated by companies with a commercial interest in scaremongering customers to

Opinion & Comment N 27

WEDNESDAY, June 12th 2013

Tamisa Golf Hotel where they hosted a charity evening in aid of Johnny Westwood, an entertainer on the coast who is seriously ill. The evening was an outstanding success, raising 5,000 euros, and the entertainers were magnificent – West End Musicals in Concert, (who along with the sound and lighting team donated their time free of charge). Unfortunately what was almost a perfect night was spoilt by people talking all through the music. If they are not interested in the entertainment then give to the charity and move to where they can talk to their hearts’ content and not spoil it for everyone else. Several people asked them to be quiet, only to be told, "if you want a quiet

Cartama burning sensation, cue calomine lotion, aloe vera etc. And still it hurt!

A trawl round the internet revealed that he had done the one thing that was not advisable. It took several days for the resulting rash to go down, even after the itching and burning stopped small raised white spots were visible. We cleaned the clogged up chain saw very carefully! A lesson learned – hopefully this letter might save other unsuspecting gardners from a similar experience.


invest in their alternative system Regards Roger Childs Coin.

Editor: We published this letter in last week’s issue but credited it to the wrong person. Apologies Roger, but sadly the answer must still be the same. Nobody really knows what is going to happen or when. Until and if we all get cut off, we cannot give you any further information.


night then go to church"! One person from one of the rowdy tables apologised when she gave a speech, but said we all live each day as if it were our last. If that's the case I'd rather my last day was listening to fabulous music in beautiful surroundings and not listening to a lot of rowdy people. Fortunately the West End Musicals in Concert are performing at the Olive Tree in Coin on the 12th July so we will get a second chance to enjoy them.

Editor Says: How very sad that a few selfish people can spoil an evening like this. You know who you are and you should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves. Thank goodness you will get another opportunity to watch and listen to the show.

Comment By Ken Campbell

Why do clocks go clockwise? A

Here’s some interesting stuff you may want to impress your friends with (or bore them to death!)

stronomy is not just about gazing at the stars; it actually controls all our day to day lives without you even knowing. We have seven days in a week because the ancient Babylonians counted the phases of the Moon beginning with a new moon, it takes 28 and a bit days from new moon to new moon.


hey also knew that there were seven ‘not stars’ in the sky and so named each day after them. Sunday, ‘Moonday’ and ‘Saturnsday’ are obvious but in Latin the other days of the week are named after Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter. It’s just as well that they didn’t know about Uranus and Neptune or we’d all be working a nine-day week!


here are 12 months in a year; again this is because months used to be measured by the 12 full moons in a year, and the name ‘month’ comes from ‘moonth’. There can sometimes be 13 full moons in a year, if two full moons fall in the same month then the second one is known as a ‘blue moon’.


riginally months were mostly 29 days, which is the time taken by the Moon to orbit the Earth. However, this resulted in a year of only 354 days while the orbital period of the Earth is 365 ¼ days. As a result, the calendar became out of sync with the seasons which was bad. It was in 4 BC that Julius Caesar reformed the calendar and so extra days were added in some months to even it out a bit.


ecause of this extra quarter day it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun then every four years these add up to produce a year of 366 days rather than 365. Here’s where the leap year comes from – we add an extra day on February 29th to compensate.


ur seasons are dependent on the tilt of the Earth. During the summer months the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun and so we have longer, warmer days. On the 21st June the Earth will be at its maximum northern tilt and we have the Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year. After the solstice the days

begin to get shorter as winter moves in. The Summer Solstice was so important to ancient Britons that five thousand years ago they built Stonehenge to celebrate it.


hristmas was originally a pagan festival to celebrate the Winter Solstice or shortest day of the year that falls on December 21st or 22nd. It was only adopted as being the day that Jesus was born in the early 4th century.


hy does Easter move around so much? Easter Sunday is calculated as being the first Sunday that follows the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. This is the day when there is equal day and night across the Earth, usually 21st or 22nd March.


here are 360° in a circle. Why not 400°? It would make sense if each right angle were 100° instead of 90. Well it’s because there are 365 days in a year and so each degree is meant to represent one day of movement of the Earth in it’s orbit around the Sun.


o why do clocks go clockwise? The first clocks were sundials and they were invented in the Northern Hemisphere. To see the Sun from the Northern Hemisphere you have to look south. This means that the Sun will rise to your left and travel across the sky to the right. The shadow that it forms will therefore travel in a clockwise direction around a sundial. When the first mechanical clocks were invented the practice of numbering them stayed as in sundials. If someone living in the Southern Hemisphere had first invented sundials then we would have clocks that went anti-clockwise!

Vettel dominates Canadian GP After claiming the 29th victory of his record-breaking career with Red Bull's first win at the Canadian Grand Prix Sebastian Vettel was ecstatic.

The chorus of boos from Ferrari fans in the crowd during the post-race podium ceremonies couldn't even dampen his good humour after he opened up a 36points lead in the drivers’ world championship. "It wasn't that bad – not for us anyway!" he quipped. "The sun came out as well so it doesn't get any better. "We had good races here before, but it didn't come together to win, then I lost it in the last lap two years ago which was my fault but I made up for that today." Starting from his third consecutive pole position at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the defending triple world champion came home unchallenged at the end of a dominant drive from the front. It was the 25-year-old German's third win this season and he finished a comfortable 16.200 seconds clear of second-placed Spanish favourite Fernando Alonso of Ferrari who fought from sixth on the grid to finish on the podium. "Yes! At last we have won in Canada," screamed a delighted Vettel. Alonso said: "Yesterday we didn't have a good qualifying. I didn't get a fast lap and the conditions were not easy, but we knew the pace in dry conditions was good. "We had high hopes. I was fighting top drivers and I had very good fights with Mark, Nico and Lewis at the end. It was not easy because they are super-talented. "But I think second tastes of victory, because we scored some good points after a very difficult weekend." Lewis Hamilton was third for Mercedes after racing at the front and leading for three laps. It was his third podium finish of the year in seven races with his new team. Hamilton, who had been hoping for his fourth win in Canada on one of his favourite circuits, said his Mercedes car suffered minor damage in the thrilling late dice with Alonso.

"I think a small part of the wing came off it was really close, we had a great battle, he (Alonso) is a fair driver and had a great drive. We just have to keep

pushing so we can get closer to these guys." Australian Mark Webber came home in fourth in the second Red Bull ahead of Monaco winner Nico Rosberg in the second Mercedes,

A sad note to end on was the death of a race marshal. The 38-year-old marshal was killed at the end of the

Canadian Grand Prix after being hit by a recovery truck. The accident happened while Esteban Gutierrez's stricken Sauber was being removed from the Montreal circuit. The International Automobile Federation said the man, who has yet to be named, had stumbled after dropping his radio. "My deepest condolences to the family of the marshal who lost his life today, our prayers for him and his family. RIP," said Gutierrez on Twitter.

The FIA said the marshal tripped while attempting to pick up his radio as workers used a mobile crane to lift Gutierrez's car and return it to the pits. He was run over by the recovery vehicle,

at the end of the Coin road Mijas Costa

whose driver could not see him, added the FIA. Medics stabilised the victim at the track before he was airlifted to hospital where he later died.

"I am very, very sad to hear this news and my thoughts are with his family and friends," said Sebastian Vettel, who won the race for Red Bull. "The work of marshals is not always seen but it is vital to our sport and without their commitment, time and dedication there would be no motorsport," added the three-time world champion. Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, who finished second, said the man's death was "terrible news". "Today there is nothing to celebrate," added the Spaniard on Twitter. This was the first marshal fatality since 2001 when Graham Beveridge was fatally injured by a loose wheel from Jacques Villeneuve's BAR-Honda at the Australian Grand Prix.

Froome wins Dauphine Team Sky wrapped up a second consecutive 1-2 victory at the Criterium du Dauphine with Chris Froome and Richie Porte taking two of the top four positions on a mountainous final stage. The duo were guided up the Montée de Risoul by their hard-working teammates and then rode clear of their rivals in the last two kilometres. Froome set a blistering pace for Porte, and only Andrew Talansky was able to intersect the duo as they climbed towards the finish line.

Despite Froome’s efforts, he still had enough left in the tank to outsprint the Garmin-Sharp rider for second place on the day after Alessandro De Marchi (Cannondale) had claimed a gutsy solo victory 24 seconds before, with Porte rolling in seven seconds further back to seal a fine fourth place in Risoul. Those results earned Froome his fourth stage race success of the season, 58 seconds ahead of Porte, and replicated Bradley Wiggins and Michael Rogers’ remarkable feat of 2012.

Huge win for Malaga Ladies bowlers A group of 11 bowlers from Malaga province travelled six hours to Southern Alicante to enter the 2013 Spanish National Championships in May. Amongst them was a ladies pair representing Belplaya Bowls Club, Kate Morris & Mary Detheridge (pictured right). These two played seven rounds and beat 67 other pairs from all over Spain, to carry off the Ladies Pairs title for Malaga. In the final Kate and Mary narrowly ousted the girls from Bonalba Bowls Club.

The low entry from Malaga to the Nationals can be put down to the current economic crisis and

general apathy to the Nationals from this area, because they are habitually held at Southern Alicante. The organisers feel that if the venue was changed to any other region in Spain where bowling clubs exists, the total entry would diminish.

At any rate Team Malaga’s successes against the National Squad recently and Kate and Mary’s achievement at this year’s Nationals, emphasise the strength of bowling skills in

this region.

Well done ladies!

Local Cricket News Europa CC 258/4 too strong for Combined Colleges CC 214/9.

On a beautiful day at the Cártama Oval, Europa CC started well with the bat, led by Mark Bacarese (70). Although the Combined Colleges slow bowlers pegged back the run rate for a while, aggressive strokeplay from Ian Latin and Jay Bokhari took them to 258/4 at the end of their 35 overs. Despite Colleges losing two early wickets in reply, Nushan Alwis (99) and Scott Appleby played really well and kept the batting side in the game.

However, with the run rate escalating, the remaining batsmen had to look for quick runs and in the end fell short, finishing on 214/9. Europa look almost certain to win the league this season, having played four and won four.


This Sunday 16th June there is a break in the league fixtures for those who just enjoy playing a

non-serious game of cricket – open to all ages and all abilities. If you would like to come along for a fun day of cricket or want to get involved in the local cricket scene at whatever level please contact Tim on e-mail: or call on 662 233 302.

e world’s top three to Sunday morning Footbowl play together at US Open at Miraflores Bowls Club Summer’s here and it’s time to play Footbowl, (no this is not a mis-spelling), the bowls game with a soccer slant.

Here’s how it works – the basis is a normal game of team bowls but the team that scores three or more shots in an end scores a goal. The result of the game is based entirely on goals scored, (the

overall shot difference does not count). ‘Penalties’ are awarded against the team that moves the jack into the ditch or out of the rink. At the conclusion of the next end, the offended team may remove any two bowls from the head before the count starts. Although Footbowl is normally played in a very convivial atmosphere,

competition is quite fierce.

Craig and Sandra at Miraflores welcome all bowlers to participate every Sunday morning at 10am for 10:30, dress casual. Prizes awarded to winners each week, (no league format). For more information contact Craig on 655196616.

Kieran Taylor Rocks the Auditorium Taking to the big stage for the first time under the floodlights, with the theme from Rocky blasting from the PA system and on a very chilly night, Kieran Taylor the 18-year-old

taekwondo black belt from Arroyo had his best fight ever to take a stunning gold medal over three rounds against an opponent who weighed 10kgs more than he did.

A very large, noisy and enthusiastic crowd certainly showed their appreciation and gave Kieran a great reception at the prestigious Benalmadena Cup,which took place at The Auditorium late last Saturday night.

Bringing together the very best exponents of taekwondo from all over Spain, Maxy Montiel who is Kieran's coach, did his usual excellent job in organising this event and it was also nice to see the Spanish National Coach keeping his eye on the proceedings.

Rory McIlroy has been drawn with Tiger Woods and Adam Scott as the world's top three play the opening two rounds of the US Open at Merion together.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, the 2010 champion, is grouped with Americans Jim Furyk and Zach Johnson.

England’s Luke Donald and Lee Westwood will play with 2012 Ryder Cup teammate Martin Kaymer.

Defending champion Webb Simpson and Open winner Ernie Els are in a trio with 2012 US Amateur champion Steven Fox.

Woods and Sergio Garcia are in the same tournament

for the first time since their spat at The Players Championship in May, which was followed by Garcia having to apologise for a remark he made.

Spaniard Garcia will tee off with former Open champions Padraig Harrington and Stewart Cink when the event starts on Thursday.

Wayne’s Poker Tips Poker must be viewed as one long lifetime game instead of many short sessions – the reason for this is the course of thousands of hands with the best hand winning the correct amount of time. Poker, however, is full of short-term variance (often called luck), which can be extremely frustrating. Despite losing when the odds are overwhelmingly in your favour, the goal of winning poker is still to put yourself in this type of situation as many times as possible because when you do, you will win most of the time. The best way to achieve this is to manage your poker odds in other words, do we have the odds to call – sometimes the pot odds are so great we have to call with any two cards.

Let’s assume we are in a hand and we have odds of around 4:1 against winning this hand. To decide whether or not we should call our

opponent's bet depends on how much money is in the pot. No, we don't mean that if there's a whole bunch of cash you should just go for it. What you should be looking for is the ratio of money you could win compared to the size of your opponent's bet.

To continue our example. Let’s say there was €90 in the pot and your opponent bet €10. That makes a total of €100 in the middle of the table just waiting to be won. You need to match your opponent’s bet of $10 to see the river card, so it’s going to cost you €10 to see if that last card is going to be one of the nine you need to win. If you can win €100 by betting €10 then you are getting odds of 10:1 on your bet. Compare this with your 4:1 chance of

winning. With 4:1 odds you would be being offered the chance to win €40 when betting $10. But in this situation you are being offered the chance to win €100 for a €10 bet. Should you call that bet? Yes and you should do it faster than an eye can blink because the odds are offering you the chance to enjoy a great pay day.

Youngster dreams of playing for England

Record-breaking Yorkshire bowler Matthew Fisher admits he is already dreaming of playing cricket for England after making his county debut. Fisher became the youngest cricketer to play in a competitive county game when he faced Leicestershire in the YB 40 on Sunday, aged 15 years and 212 days. He took 1-40 in seven overs during Yorkshire's three-wicket defeat. "Playing professionally for Yorkshire is a massive dream, but the pinnacle would be to play for England," he said.

Now he’s the happy, smiley, calm one Jose Mourinho proclaimed that he is "the Happy One" on his return to Chelsea, adding that he is calmer and a better manager than he has ever been. The 50-year-old Portuguese, who first managed the Blues between 2004 and 2007, was officially announced as Chelsea's new boss on the 3rd of June. "I am the Happy One," said Mourinho at a Stamford Bridge news conference. "Calmer? I believe so. I'm in the best moment of my career in terms of knowledge."

He added: "I began management in 2000. I thought I knew everything, but after 13 years you realise you know nothing and have to learn every day. My adventures around Europe were fantastic for me, different countries, different cultures, different media. It was fantastic. "At 50, I think I am still very young as a manager and I think it is like the beginning of a new period. Do I have a different personality? No, but for sure I have a different approach and perspective." Former Real Madrid boss Mourinho, who

Tiger Woods & Sergio Garcia shake hands on 'fried chicken' row League titles in Mourinho's first spell at Stamford Bridge. But he was not always selected by interim boss Rafael Benitez during an injury-troubled 2012-13 season.

Fernandinho’s previous club had inserted a £42.5million buy-out clause and a deal of £22-million has been mentioned in relation to Navas.

Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods have shaken hands after a row in which Spaniard Garcia was accused of making an offensive remark about the American. World number one Woods was photographed accepting the hand of Garcia as they practised for this week's US Open. Garcia had responded to an on-course dispute between the pair last month by joking he would invite Woods for dinner to make up and serve fried chicken. The food is stereotypically associated with black people in the southern US. Woods said the comment was "hurtful" and "clearly inappropriate", prompting an apology from Garcia, who insisted it had had no racist intent.


Record win for Rafael Nadal Rafael Nadal coped with an on-court intruder and the Paris rain to beat fellow Spaniard David Ferrer and win a record eighth French Open title. Nadal, 27, came through 6-3 6-2 6-3 to reaffirm his dominance on clay, and further elevate himself among the greats of the sport. The win also makes him the first man to win a Grand Slam singles tournament eight times. His 59th match win also takes him past Roger Federer and Guillermo Vilas at Roland Garros, while his 12th major title moves him above Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver on the all-time list.

Ferrer, playing in his first major final at the age of 31, was a worthy adversary and pushed his compatriot harder than the score might suggest, but he never threatened an upset.
