Expats urged to get residency certificate British expats are being urged to apply for an official residency certificate before the date when the UK is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019. Negotiations continue between the British government and the EU’s remaining 27 members as part of the planned Withdrawal Agreement and last December

both sides addressed the subject of citizens’ rights. British consulate officials and legal experts have recently stressed the need for people without a residency certificate to start the process to be registered before March 29 next year. Costa Blanca News carries a full report on the issue this Friday.

That sinking feeling

On your marks Over 2,000 lycra-clad competitors took part in the 34th joint half marathon and 10K run in Benidorm on Saturday evening, and despite the rain, nearly 1,800 completed the course. Half of those taking part were non-Spaniards, mostly made up of British runners, proving that this Benidorm race is one that attracts many seasoned British club runners and athletes. Starting at the town hall, the route took the runners along the length of the Levante promenade, up past the indoor market and as far the Lope de Vega school (just before Benidorm Palace) before looping back on itself along the Avenida Mediterráneo, with the 10K distance finishing off back at the town hall square. Those that were going the full 21km distance then went down towards Parque de Elche, along the Poniente

promenade and as far as the Hotel Gran Bali and back. The winner of the men's 21km half marathon was Dutchman Edwin de Vries, with a time of 1:08:15, followed a mere 0:00:24 later by Brit Andrew Davies, from Stockport. In the women's category, the Brits flew the flag by bagging both first and second positions, with Elenor Kirk winning in 1:20:12 followed by Lauren Wilsom with

a time of 1:27:08. In the 10km distance, the men’s title went to Albacete club runner Severino Felipe Gomez, who ran a very fast 0:32:17, and the women's title to Yesica Castany from Alicante Athletics Club, who clocked up 0:36:30. After the races had finished, Benidorm mayor Toni Perez, accompanied by the sports councillor and fiesta queens, presented the winners with trophies and medals.

Dishes for diabetics Patients of Torrevieja Hospital with diabetes have taken part in a group activity to inform them about their condition and offer dietary advice so they can better control the illness. The principal objective was to encourage healthy eating habits, and after an educational talk they visited the hospital kitchen, where they learned how to make a complete, balanced and varied menu that is suitable for people with diabetes. The nutritionist and the cooks showed them how to create the meal in portions. At the end, the participants were able to taste a selection of desserts that are suitable for

diabetics, which the cooks had prepared especially for the occasion. Diabetes affects 7% of the population, which is more than 10,000 people in the Torrevieja Hospital catchment area, and it is estimated that there are also

just as many undiagnosed cases. For this reason, medical professionals have various tools to detect new cases, deal with possible complications and promote self-management of this condition.

Benidorm evacuation after chippy gas blast British-owned Dave's Chippy on Calle Cuenca in Benidorm was at the centre of a gas explosion on Tuesday morning (approximately 11.15am) which resulted in police cordoning off a large area of surrounding streets for a number of hours.

Police, fire engines and the Red Cross were all in attendance. A gas bottle exploded, 'causing the entire shop front to be blown out onto the street', reported an eye-witness. Neighbouring shops were quickly evacuated, including the Consum supermarket near the English square. A group of holidaymakers waiting for their shuttle bus pick-up to take them to Alicante air-

port for their Jet2 flight back to Manchester were left stranded because the road was closed. An inside source at the scene said that there were more gas bottles than legally permitted, which will now be investigated. Injured staff who were inside the premises at the time were treated for first degree burns, cuts and bruises at the scene, and fortunately they did not require hospital treatment.

Defibrillators for the coast Electricity company conman caught A total of €45,229 a year will be invested by Orihuela council in the rental contract and training courses for 35 defibrillators. The defibrillators will be installed in council and public facilities. In Orihuela Costa, they will go to the reading point and the Ramón de

Campoamor residents' participation centre in La Cuerda, the civic centre at Alameda del Mar, the town hall building at Playa Flamenca, and in some local police vehicles. They noted that there are already defibrillators in the CDM sports centre in Orihuela Costa.

2FOR1 GLASSES FROM 59€ INCLUDING FREE SUN AND UV TINT ON ONE PAIR

A man has been arrested who allegedly posed as an electricity company worker to steal from houses around the area, including Pilar de la Horadada, Orihuela and Almoradí. An Elche National Police spokesman described the suspect as ‘one of the biggest thieves and fraudsters in the Vega Baja’. The 32-year-old Algerian man was detained in a joint operation with Guardia Civil in Pilar de la Horadada. According to the spokesman, he used jackets and logos of a wellknown electricity company to convince victims to let him into their houses. They reported that he stolen valuable electronic devices, per-

sonal documents and bank cards, which he then used to try and empty their accounts. Security camera footage from the cash machines he used enabled the suspect to be identified and tracked down to his home in Elche. Officers searched the property and found many of the goods that had been reported stolen, documents linking him to other unsolved cases, and the props he used to pose as a representative of the electricity company. So far, the collaboration between the security forces has implicated the suspect in eight thefts from homes and one fraud, for which a court has remanded him in custody.

Teulada-Moraira mayor doesn't want the blues Teulada-Moraira mayor Carlos Linares has announced that blue zone (pay-and-display) parking will soon be a thing of the past, if he gets his way. Sr Llinares stated: "My intention, and that of the council, is that while we are in this town hall, and while I am mayor, whenever we can we will avoid our citizens paying for

parking,” he said. His statement comes after an an announcement from the blue zone concession owner saying they would like to introduce a mobile application scheme where drivers can pay to park on the spot, rather than find a meter. Read the full story in Costa Blanca News on Friday.

Firefighters possibly suffering from nightmares Firemen called to a house fire in Benissa did not realise they were in a room full of snakes as they fought flames. The emergency services were called at around 2.30pm on Sunday to the two-storey townhouse in Carrer Desemparats by a neighbour who noticed smoke and flames. The neighbour tried to extinguish

Clearing out the bullring A campaign to kill rats and mice and to control feral cat colonies in the old bullring area in Orihuela has been launched by the local department for health. Councillor Noelia Grao said that these works were

needed before the rebuilding of the bullring starts. The feral cats are being caught, neutered and moved to the animal shelter at San Bartolomé, from where they will be relocated.

the fire as he waited for the emergency services, but it had taken hold. Two fire units arrived from Benissa and Dénia, and they contained the fire to the ground floor of the house. The firemen, donned in breathing apparatus, then checked the second floor, which was shrouded in smoke. It was at that time that the owner of the house

arrived and told coordinators that there was a room full of snakes on that floor. The owner was apparently more concerned about his snakes than his home, and asked the firemen to ventilate the room and check they were alive. All snakes survived the incident, while the house suffered severe smoke damage.

Local police on wild pig chase Ever since George Clooney promoted Vietnamese mini pigs as pets, many towns have had a serious pig problem. People flocked to buy them, and when they were adult and not so ‘mini’, weighing up to 60 kilos, then they just turned them loose by parks or directly on to the street. Now it’s Alicante city’s turn to deal with them. Last week local police spent hours trying to catch a pig that had taken up residence at the local cemetery, and earlier in the day, had frightened a woman who was placing flowers at her family’s grave.

It took the police more than two hours to round up the evasive animal. Onlookers said it looked like a black comedy film, with the pig and the police running around in circles between the headstones. Pigs were first spotted roaming in Alicante near Vistahermosa, but lately they seem to prefer the area surrounding the cemetery. They survive by feeding from dustbins. Last December, the town hall ordered a pig hunt, and 12 were captured and taken to the sanctuary in Bacarot. It looks like this one got away that day.

Palm tree down Strong winds toppled a palm tree at Paseo de la Libertad in Torrevieja last Thursday evening. The tree smashed through a stall at the hippy market. Fortunately no one was injured as most of the booths were empty due to the inclement weather. A spokeswoman for Torrevieja town hall noted that gusts had reached up to 60km/h in the town. She said that sea levels rose dramatically during the weather episode, which was linked to Storm Emma.

Cemetery under surveillance Continual car break-ins at Crevillente cemetery have convinced the town hall to install security cameras. Security councillor Manuel Moya said this will be the most effective response in order to protect vehicles in the car park. The proposal is for five video cameras which would record day and night. Sr Moya also advised visitors not to leave any belongings, wallets or purses inside vehicles parked there. He said it is very difficult for the authorities to catch the thieves, who wait until the circumstances are favourable, even though officers have tried tactics including covert stakeouts. The council asked the re-

gional government for permission to install the cameras, which has been granted in order to prevent crime and ensure peaceful use of a public space. The authorisation does not include recording of sound and it expires on January 18, 2019 unless it is renewed. “As soon as the video cameras are installed the security forces will have a powerful tool to identify those responsible for these crimes… and it could also deter others who intend to commit crimes,” added Sr Moya. The cost of the equipment and installation is €4,800 and they will be fitted as soon as possible.

Deal with Felixstowe Cartagena port authority has signed an agreement with the British container cargo shipping company Seago Line to launch a new route to Felixstowe harbour. The authorities stressed that shipping with northern Euro-

pean companies was crucial to Cartagena harbour and the new agreement would improve times dramatically. According to the harbour authorities, the agreement means containers can be shipped to the UK in just five

days and ships can reach key harbours such as Bremerhaven, Rotterdam and Antwerp in a shorter time. Seago Line’s headquarters are in Denmark and it is owned by Maersk, which has been using Cartagena harbour for 20 years.

Teenage prostitution conundrum A 15-year-old girl was found soliciting by Murcia local police on Avenida Miguel de Cervantes in the city. The girl was only wearing a leotard and had 25 condoms and a big knife in her bag. She was being escorted by two boys aged 15, and one of them said he was her boyfriend. The girl told the officers initially that she liked to wear those kind of clothes, but

she admitted eventually that she was working as a prostitute and the knife was to protect herself from other prostitutes. She was taken to the local police station, where her mother collected her. The mother told the officers that she was desperate and did not know what to do with her daughter because she had been arrested for the same offence in February.

Abuse suspect arrested A 52-year-old man has been arrested in Murcia by local police for alleged sexual abuse of two sisters aged 10 and 12, the local police informed. The eldest girl was found out of school by a local police officer, who contacted her mother. The mother admitted that she was worried, because her daughters were leaving school early and she

suspected they had an odd relationship with a family friend. The children told the police that they used to go to the man’s home and were given sweets and money and he used to massage them. The man was arrested immediately and taken to the police station for questioning.

Burglary gang busted A gang of young burglars has been busted in Torre Pacheco following a wave of break-ins in the town, the Guardia Civil reported last week. Those arrested are three Spanish and Moroccan nationals, all aged 20, and based in Torre Pacheco. According to the officers, the suspects had broken into four properties and attempted to break into another 12 homes in recent months. All the homes stood in the town centre and the burglars broke the locks on doors.

The burglaries occurred in daylight, when the owners were at work. A Guardia Civil spokeswoman said the burglars worked in a coordinated way to select the properties and watch the routines and habits of the owners to make sure they were not at home during the burglary. “They knocked on the door or rang the bell to make sure the owners were out,” she said. The suspects were taken to a San Javier and one of them was sent to jail on remand.

of the women they were representing, had A3 pictures in front of them. The ladies and one small child with the prayer objects carried out their role with reference and thought. The singing was great – even the Suriname words sounded as if we were totally used to the language! Thank you to the women of Suriname for a wonderful service.

The service was held where our regular Sunday worship is held. We have a service of Holy Communion in Albir every Sunday at 9.45am at the Norwegian Seaman’s Church in Carrer Mart.

Royal Mint's new coins celebrate what makes Britain great James Bond, fish and chips, an English breakfast, the Loch Ness Monster and even queuing are celebrated in a new collection of 'quintessentially British' 10p coins which are now showing up in people's change. The collection of 26 new 10p designs, unveiled by the Royal Mint, is intended as an A to Z of what makes Britain great - from the Angel of the North to a zebra crossing. The English breakfast coin depicts a fried egg, bacon, sausages, tomato and beans, while the James Bond coin says: '007'. Stonehenge, a double decker bus, the NHS and the Houses of Parliament are also celebrated in the collection, which was released into general circulation last week alongside collectors' versions available to buy from the Royal Mint website. The Royal Mint also has a 'great British coin hunt' app, allowing coin hunters to cre-

ate a digital collection of the coins they find in their change. Users can download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play, to scan the coin with their camera. They can also link the app to their social media to share what they find in their pockets and wallets. There is also a heat map within the app, showing where different coins are being found and directing them to swap shops where they can trade coins with fellow collectors. Users can also use the app to have a go at designing their own coin. Anne Jessopp, chief executive at the Royal Mint, said: "These designs were selected because we feel they represent a diverse mix of elements that make up the country we all love. "There is a lot to be proud of in the UK - whether it's at the highest level, our Houses of Parliament representing

democracy and freedom of speech, technological advancements such as Tim Berners-Lee's world wide web, or just a good cup of tea, it's all here in the designs. "We hope the British public is inspired to take part in the great British coin hunt by checking their change for those miniature works of art that spell out just some of the many iconic themes that are quintessentially British." Dr Kevin Clancy, director of the Royal Mint Museum, said the new collection is a departure from the standard way in which the Royal Mint has celebrated what is great about Britain in the past. He said: "We have marked great events, celebrated engineers, politicians and of course royalty. "This series really drills down into the heartland of what makes Britain British. It's the granularity of British life celebrated on the coinage." More information about

the coins can be found at www.royalmint/coinhunt The full great British coin hunt range is as follows: A - Angel of the North B - Bond... James Bond C - Cricket D - Double decker bus E - English breakfast F - Fish and chips G - Greenwich mean time H - Houses of Parliament I - Ice-cream cone J - Jubilee K - King Arthur

L - Loch Ness Monster M - Mackintosh N -National Health Service O - Oak tree P - Post box Q - Queuing R - Robin S - Stonehenge T - Teapot U - Union flag V - Village W - World wide web X - X marks the spot Y - Yeoman Z - Zebra crossing.

The Stoned rock the house for The Teulada–Moraira Lions Wednesday, February 28 saw a great Rolling Stones tribute show performed by The Stoned on behalf of the Teulada–Moraira Lions in Espai La Senieta, Moraira. The concert was a sell-out and proved a huge success from the first 'riff' to the last chord. This is the first time the Teulada-Moraira Lions have engaged The Stoned and they certainly lived up to their idols. All the Rolling Stones hits were performed with great aplomb, much to the delight of the audience, who were dancing, singing and thoroughly enjoying the show, including the “Jaggerish” antics of the front man. The next concert organised by Teulada-Moraira Lions is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, again in Espai La Senieta, Moraira and features The Liverpool Band, The evening show has already sold out and there are only a few remaining tickets available for the matinee performance. Then the Teulada-Moraira

Lions will be presenting An Evening with Aretha Franklin featuring the fabulous Shondell Mimms on Saturday, April 21, again in Espai La Senieta, Moraira. This will be a fantastic tribute to one of the greatest Soul Divas emulating her fantastic Mezzo– Soprano vocal style and on-

Add the tomato purée, turmeric, stock, paprika and salt and pepper to taste, blending well. Bring to the boil, then add the chicken, garlic sausage and peppers, pressing them well down into the rice mixture. Lower

Add the onion and cook gently for about 5 minutes. Add the liver and cook gently for about 3 minutes until golden on the underside. Turn over, sprinkle generously with sage and salt and pepper, and cook for about 2 minutes until the remaining side is also golden. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep frying pan.

Cinderella comes to Hondón

The Ugly Sisters, Benidormia and Magaloof

The Frailes Players’ big night had arrived, Cinderella came to the stage (Oh no she didn’t. Oh yes she did) and the spotlight shone on this first endeavour by a group of people showcasing their talent in the best traditions of a spectacular pantomime. Playing to a sellout audience over two nights, the

theatre in Hondón de los Frailes rang with the traditional chorus of cheers for the goodies, boos for the baddies and the ever popular ‘He’s behind you’, 'Oh no I didn’t’ and ‘Oh yes you did’ in a brilliant show of audience participation. Who knew that so much hidden talent was to be found; the scenery, costumes, make-up, sound,

lighting, plus importantly, the music, were of a very high standard and it was apparent that everyone involved was thoroughly enjoying themselves. In praise of the acting talent on show, let us not forget the backroom ladies and gents who worked such miracles. We laughed at the ‘Shifty Shifters’ who broke the

de los Frailes mould by sometimes working their magic in full view of the audience. Buttons, played by Janni Menday, had a wonderful young sidekick, Bows played by Scottie. This young lad has a great future in acting! Fully supported by a wonderful cast of Fairies, Woodland Creatures and Stars, all young children from the local school were the stars of the night who must share their platform with all the other members of the cast. Denise Watson as Cinderella charmed her audience as well as her Prince Charming, played by Kim Vance. The Prince was ably assisted by his valet, Dandini, played by Barbara Colclough, and to round up the Palace crew was the Herald, played by George Rushton. Now for the baddies. One had to feel sorry for Baron Hardup (Paul Menday).His was a tough row to hoe, short of cash and with a terrible taste in women, he married the proverbial Stepmother (Tim Kay), who decided that her Really Ugly Daughters, Beni-

dormia (Jim Gallamore and Magaloofia (Len Simm), were going to rule the roost in future and the only place for poor Cinderella was as a downtrodden slavey. True to the best Panto tradition, in steps the Fairy Godmother (Carol Rowland) to save the day, and with the help of her Fairies, gets Cinders to the ball after a miraculous change of dress and the transformation of a giant pumpkin and mice into a coach and horses. The story then followed through, the slipper was lost, found, tried on the Ugly Sisters (boy were they ugly!), and at last, Cinderella emerges triumphant to marry her Prince. A wonderful evening all round, with grateful thanks to the Director, Martyn Rissen, the Producer, Carol Rowland, and all the wonderful cast, both front of stage and those behind the scenes. But of course, none of this would have been possible without the wonderful cooperation of HondĂłn de los Frailes town hall and our friend, Victor.

Thinking about getting a tattoo? Celebrity tattoo artist Kevin Paul shares his top tips for avoiding post-inking regret Getting your first tattoo can be really exciting, especially if you've been thinking about it for a long time. But even if you think you're 100% ready to go under the needle, having planned and contemplated the design for months - or even years - there might still be some factors you haven't considered. "I've been getting tattoos for over 27 years now and I regret a lot of what I have from when I was younger," admits celebrity tattooist Kevin Paul. "In this day and age, we should be educated enough to not make mistakes, but we're not."

Paul, the man responsible for more than 40 of Ed Sheeran's opinion-dividing tattoos and who has also inked the likes of Harry Styles and Rihanna, first picked up a tattoo gun aged 13, so he has a lot of experience to draw on. From finding a decent tattooist to choosing a design and where to position your inaugural ink, there's a lot to think about, and since tattoo removal is both expensive and very painful, you need to make sure you're not going to feel pangs of regret when you leave the tattoo parlour. Keen to avoid a rookie mistake? Here, Paul shares seven things to consider

when getting your first tattoo... 1. Go to a reputable tattoo artist "The problem with most tattooists is that they just want your money, so when you come in and ask for a pocket watch they'll put it on you and kick you out the door quick," Paul warns. "I don't like to do that. I don't want you to be happy with your tattoo for a year or two or three years - I want you to be happy with it forever." 2. Don't rely on word of mouth to find a tattooist "There's nothing worse than word of mouth," says Paul. "You go on Facebook and you'll see a status, 'does anyone know a good tattooist?' and half the people that are put on there I think are awful and I've had to cover up their work! "You need to properly research it. Look at tattoo conventions and see the level of art that is being done and look at the websites of tattoo conventions. You need to educate yourself on what's good and bad first of all, then look at good artists in your area." 3. First tattoos should be personal "I always say to everyone full stop: have something personal. Don't re-

spond to fashion trends. Don't have what your favourite celebrity's got. Have something that's personal to you," Paul advises. "Obviously, everyone wants something different, whether it's for their parents or for their kids, or they've lost somebody. You [as a tattooist] have to find out why people want it and then once you know what they want, then you can give them some ideas. "Every style can be adapted to something that's personal to you." 4. Don't copy David Beckham (or any other celebrities) "Everyone's having pocket watches and clouds and angels [at the moment], and it's all because of David Beckham," Paul says. "Everyone's just copying David Beckham, but realistically I don't think these people want the same tattoos as David Beckham, they just like the style of black and white." Paul says he's done seven or eight lion tattoos a week for the last three years, dating back to when he inked a huge lion design on Ed Sheeran's chest, but that was something that had a personal meaning for the singer. 5. Don't use Google for inspiration When choosing a design, turning to Google is the "worst thing" you can do, Paul reckons. "You'll be getting the same thing that every other doughnut has got!" he laughs. "The problem is everyone wants tattoos but they're not artistic. They get on Google,

look at pictures and go, 'That's what I want'. But they don't really want that." Photos can be useful for showing a tattoo artist the style you'd like your tattoo in, but you should always have something unique and personal, Paul advises. 6. Coloured tattoos will fade more quickly "In terms of longevity, tattoos are definitely going to be best in black and grey, because every time they fade you can retouch them," Paul says. "It's a lot harder with colours, because colours get dull, so it's hard to bring it back to life and freshen it up again." 7. Covered tattoos last longer If you don't want to have to go back for lots of touchups, choose a place on your body that isn't exposed, Paul recommends. "Places that are going to be in the sun are going to fade more over time," he says. "I've got tattoos on my head that are two years old and they've faded quite a bit, and then I've got tattoos on my arms and on my ribs that are still as bright as the day I got them." 8. Don't worry about the pain Worried that your first tattoo is going to be very painful? Paul has noticed a recent trend for people using numbing creams before they go under the gun to make it more bearable. "That seems to be the next thing in tattoos," he says. "Generally, though, I don't think tattoos are that bad if you go to a good professional artist and you have it done properly, then realistically the pain isn't that bad."

Nine subtle signs of cancer you should never ignore There are over 200 different types of cancer in total, and more than one in three people will develop some form of the condition during their lifetime, so it's important to be clued-up on the potential warning signs that something isn't quite right. Where it gets tricky though, is when those warning signs aren't exactly obvious. Most of us know to get any unusual lumps checked out by a doctor, but there are several other more subtle, or less talked-about, symptoms that are just as important to know about - many of which we often easily brush aside and ignore. Treatments work best when cancer is caught early, so noticing any unusual changes - and getting them checked out - sooner rather than later can make all the difference to your health. Remember, most of the time, these 'symptoms' will turn out to be entirely harmless and don't automatically mean you have cancer, but it's always best to get them seen by a doctor and talk through your concerns. Here are some of the red flags that many people overlook... 1. Unexplained weight loss Dropping a dress size might seem like good news at first, but if you haven't made any significant changes to your diet or exercise routine, it could be a sign that something is wrong. Many different cancers cause weight loss. This is because tumours use up a lot of energy and nutrition as they grow. Small fluctuations in weight are normal, and it's not uncommon for a noticeable change in your size to happen after a stressful event - but unexplained significant weight loss should never be ignored. Weight loss occurs most often with cancers of the stomach, oesophagus, pancreas or lung. If you're struggling to put any lost weight back on, speak to your GP, as they will be able to rule out any serious illnesses. 2. Ongoing tiredness If your lifestyle is particularly demanding and you're not getting enough sleep, then it stands to reason that you're going to feel tired. But un-

usual exhaustion that's been going on for a while could be due to something else going on beneath the surface. Fatigue can be an early sign of cancer; a continuous feeling of exhaustion that doesn't get better even after you rest. Often, fatigue occurs in the early stages of cancer because of blood loss in the body. Cancers of the digestive tract tend to cause internal bleeding. While the blood loss may be too subtle to notice in one's faeces, it may gradually lead to anaemia. The first sign of this may be fatigue and exhaustion, as well as shortness of breath, palpitations and ankle swelling. 3. Unexplained or irregular bleeding Both women and men can experience this. If a woman bleeds 12 months after menopause, it's a worrying sign - no matter if the bleeding is light or not as it could signify cervical or endometrial cancer. Irregular periods and bleeding between cycles, or after sex, can also be a cause for concern in younger women, but this could also be indicative of other health problems or hormonal fluctuations. It's always best to go and see your doctor as soon as possible, and let them decide if further investigations are needed. Additionally, rectal bleeding shouldn't be ignored. While it's most commonly linked to a haemorrhoid, rectal bleeding with dark blood should be enough of a concern to make a trip to the GP. 4. Swelling in the neck Medical advice says that we should regularly check our breasts and testicles for any errant lumps or bumps, but your neck could also be a key indicator of cancerous cells. Many patients don't realise the significance of a persistent neck lump, and leave it too long before seeing a doctor. It is a worrying symptom, as it can signify a tumour anywhere in the head or neck, including cancer of the mouth, throat, ear, sinuses, larynx or thyroid. Neck growths can also be a sign of blood cancer and lymphoma. Neck swellings are common with viral infections, but these usually settle down within a couple of

weeks. If a swelling persists for six weeks or more, they should be examined by a specialist. 5. Mouth ulcers that don't heal A mouth ulcer is a pretty runof-the-mill complaint, which should clear up on its own within a week or two. If an ulcer's causing discomfort for more than three weeks however, or you're getting lots of stubborn ulcers, it could be a sign of something more serious going on and you should seek medical advice. 6. Persistent bloating Many of us will feel bloated after a big meal, but if you feel bloated every day (even if it comes and goes), then this could be a sign of something more than just a heavy dinner or a food intolerance. If you persistently feel bloated for three weeks or more, it's best to visit your doctor. The same goes for feeling full quickly, or loss of appetite. 7. Changes to bowel habits Our bowel patterns can tend to vary from day to day, depending on what we've eaten or how stressed we are. However, any ongoing usual pattern changes, particularly if you're producing more frequent, smaller stools, like pellets or pencil-thin motions, could indicate bowel cancer. Other symptoms may include rectal bleeding, weight loss, fatigue, abdominal pain and/or swelling, or a feeling that the bowels aren't emptying fully. Bowel cancer is one

of the most common types of cancer, yet it often causes no symptoms until it has progressed to a large tumour. The earlier it is diagnosed, the better the prognosis, so these symptoms should always be taken seriously. 8. Non-healing skin blemishes Skin blemishes occur in various shapes, sizes and colours, and can appear on the skin at any time in life. People often overlook small non-healing blemishes on the skin. It's easy to see why this is, as when we age, there are many different spots and marks on the skin and it's difficult to distinguish between the innocent ones and the potentially harmful ones. As a rule, if a mole enlarges, gets darker, has an irregular outline, or uneven levels of pigmentation, then it should arouse suspicion of malignant melanoma, a serious form of skin cancer. But also, any blemish that bleeds, gets scabby, ulcer-

SweDent

ated or fails to heal, should also be shown to a doctor. 9. Unexplained pain A crick in the neck, an ache in the lower back - everyday aches and pains are common and usually nothing serious, so it's very easy for people to overlook this potential symptom. But any ongoing pain, anywhere in the body, that doesn't seem to have an obvious cause or doesn't go away, should be checked out. Pelvic pain may mean ovarian cancer; back pain may be caused by secondaries from an unnoticed tumour elsewhere, such as breast or prostate; abdominal pain may be caused by cancer of the stomach, bowel, or pancreas, to name a few examples, and chest pain may indicate lung cancer. Any unexplained pain, particularly if new, persistent, constant, disturbing sleep, or associated with weight loss, should be brought to your doctor's attention.

Six energyboosting foods that are a better pick-me-up than coffee Rising but not shining? Put down the coffee and pick up one of these healthy alternatives instead When the alarm goes off at 6.30am and you're struggling to crack an eye open, most of us turn to coffee to help power us through those painful first hours of the day. But your early morning cup probably isn't the best answer to your problems. Sure, you'll feel great when the initial caffeine buzz kicks in, but once the high wears off you'll be left feeling foggy and sluggish for the rest of the day - especially if you've loaded your mug with sweeteners or refined sugar. If you've liberally burnt the midnight oil and you really

want to last all day, your best 'stay awake' strategy is to supercharge your breakfast with healthy, energy-boosting foods. Here are six of the best to make a play for next time you just can't stop yawning. Bananas When it comes to ditching the coffee, it seems yellow really is the new black. Thanks to its winning mix of vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre, bananas are a brilliant way to kick-start a groggy morning. They contain three natural sugars: sucrose, fructose and glucose, which are converted to energy in the blood, giving you an instant hit from the first bite. The high fibre content in a banana's flesh also helps the sugar to be absorbed more slowly, providing a steady source of fuel throughout the morning. Salmon Our top energy tip? Try a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel for breakfast next time tiredness strikes. Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids which are pretty essential for brain health, energy production and circulation, as well as maintaining heart health. Fish is also a fantastic

source of protein which will stave off hunger pangs and produce a steady rise in blood sugar and energy levels, counteracting a post-carb crash. Lemon water

Eggs

As simple as the name makes out, simply add some fresh lemon juice to water to make a cheap and easy energy drink at home. Lemon water is high in vitamin C and packed with electrolytes, critical for cells to produce energy. Hydration could also be key to staving off the three o'clock slump - studies have shown people who don't drink enough water throughout the day are prone to feelings of fatigue and tiredness.

Eggs are a cracking way to start the day: they're high in iron and protein, which will give you sustainable energy throughout the day. They also contain an essential nutrient called choline that's vital for brain development, muscle movement, maintaining a healthy metabolism and much, much more. In fact, studies have linked a deficiency in choline to liver disease, heart disease and even neurological disorders.

Green tea

Nut smoothie

Here's a handy alternative drink for those of us who want to switch out the coffee for something a little more zen. Green tea still contains caffeine, but there's much less of it than in a cup of Joe, so it'll give you that muchneeded buzz - helping you concentrate - but it's far less likely to make you crash later on. It's also filled with antioxidants and nutrients that can give you a healthy afternoon boost.

Smoothies are a brilliant morning option to grab on the go. Hero nuts like cashews, almonds, and hazelnuts are high in magnesium, which plays a key role in converting sugar to energy.

What is an angiogram? Angiography is a type of Xray used to look at blood vessels. On a normal X-ray blood vessels don’t show up, so a special dye needs to be injected into the blood first. This highlights the blood vessels, allowing the doctor to see any problems. The X-ray images created during angiography are called 'angiograms'. Why are they used? Angiography is used to check the health of your blood vessels and how blood flows through them. It can be used to help diagnose or investigate a number of problems affecting the blood vessels, including: 쐽 atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries), which could mean you're at risk of having a stroke or heart attack 쐽 peripheral arterial disease (reduced blood supply to the leg muscles) 쐽 a brain aneurysm (a bulge in a blood vessel in your brain) 쐽 angina (chest pain that occurs when the blood supply to the heart muscle is restricted) 쐽 blood clots or a pulmonary embolism (a blockage in the

artery supplying your lungs) 쐽 a blockage in the blood supply to your kidneys. It may also be used to help plan treatment for some of these conditions. What happens during angiography It is carried out in a hospital X-ray or radiology department. Normally patients are awake, but may be given a sedative to help relax them. They lie down on a table and following a local anaes-

thetic a small cut is made over an artery, usually near the groin or wrist, and a very thin catheter is inserted into the artery. The catheter is guided to the area that's being examined. A special dye is injected into the catheter and a series of X-rays are taken as the dye flows through the blood vessels. The test can take between 30 minutes and two hours. Patients can normally go home afterwards. Angiography is generally a safe and painless procedure. But for a few days or weeks afterwards it's common to have: 쐽 bruising 쐽 soreness 쐽 a very small lump or collection of blood near where the catheter wasinserted. There is also a very small risk of more serious complications occurring, such as an allergic reaction to the dye, a stroke or a heart attack.

Types of angiogram There are several different types of angiogram, depending on which part of the body is being looked at. These include: 쐽 coronary angiography – to check the heart and nearby

blood vessels 쐽 cerebral angiography – to check the blood vessels in and around the brain 쐽 pulmonary angiography – to check the blood vessels supplying the lungs 쐽 renal angiography – to check the blood vessels supplying the kidneys.

Across the Pond 33

March 7, 2018 - N° 545

The Oscars This weekend will mark the 90th presentation of the Oscars (Note 1). I only tell you that because my wife Susie and I have seen three of the nine movies nominated. Remember when the Academy only nominated five movies? -Three movies is probably some sort of record for us; there were many long stretches of time in our 54 years of being together that we didn’t see movies of any kind, good or bad. (Note 2) We have been going of late because I came across an offer that supplies 2 for 1 tickets on Tuesday evening; of course, even that price would have been enough to buy every member of my first grade class a ticket to see the 1946 winner, ‘The best years of our lives’, with enough money left over to provide each of them with a bag of popcorn and a box of Juju babies, had Loogootee, Indiana’s Ritz theater offered such items. (Note 3) I never gave the Oscars any notice when I was a child, but spending some time this morning with the Internet between short naps, I came to the conclusion that the first year I paid any attention to the Oscars was 1953, the year that Awards ceremony was broadcast for the first time. The date was March 19, just nine days after I entered my teenage years. (Note 4). That was about the time that I first noticed there were other kinds of movies besides the Saturday afternoon Westerns; however, my favorite movie of 1953 was a grown-up Western. The title was ‘Shane’, the story of a drifter trying to settle down. The character Shane was played by Alan Ladd, a rugged man’s man. Strangely enough, from time to time, folks will remark on how much I grew up to resemble him. ‘Shane’ was nominated for Best Picture but did not win the Oscar, losing out to ‘From here to Eternity’, a mushy love story that, at the time, did not interest me at all. There have been 60 or so Oscar winners during my movie-watching lifetime but only a handful have been memorable to me; ‘Gladiator’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Braveheart’, ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Schindler’s List’, ‘Platoon’, ‘The Godfather’ and ‘Rocky’ are some of those. One winner, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, stands out in my memory because that was the movie that Susie and I saw on our very first date. I can’t remember where we saw it; there were four or five ornate theatres with palace-like lobbies in downtown Indianapolis at the time and being fresh out of the backwoods of southern Indiana, I was in awe of every one of them. When I wasn’t staring at the soaring, twostory baroque lobby ceiling, I was busy watching Susie daintily eat her Juju babies. Even though I loved the cinematography of ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, for the most part, I didn’t grasp the storyline; all I knew was that Peter O’Toole, portraying Lawrence, was fighting alongside Omar Sharif, who was playing some sort of Arab prince. I also had no idea who they were fighting or why but the background music served to sooth my befuddlement. But here’s the interesting part: I have recently been reading about the conflict portrayed on the screen and I learned that it had very much to do with the configuration of today’s Middle East. I think we’re going to have to watch the movie again. Should I buy Susie some Juju babies?

On the box The Gadget Show (Channel 5, 7pm)

A regular column by Gordon Grindstaff, 'Across the pond' G2 notes: 1. It could also be the 91st rendering. I had French toast for breakfast a little while ago and that put any math skills I have left on auto-pilot. The research I did on the event states that the first Oscars presentation covered both 1927 and 1928 movies, thus causing my dilemma. If you’re one of those OCD types that needs a definite answer, you can figure it out for yourself. 2. 'The Post' was one of the three movies we saw; the story of the Pentagon Papers and the information found within was very enlightening. My stance on the Vietnam war has slowly changed 180 degrees over the years since the 1960’s. The other two movies, 'Lady Bird' and 'Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri', while very good, were at times uncomfortable to watch. Had I watched anything even near these two in the 1950’s, my mother would have been sprinkling holy water all around the theater. 3. Google says that Juju babies have been around since the 1920’s but I don’t remember seeing anything resembling a candy counter at the Ritz. Of course, you have to remember that I was on a limited budget, which may have caused me to block the candy counter from my memory. My first inkling that a candy counter existed in theaters was when I took Susie to a movie and she wanted me to buy her Juju babies instead of popcorn. Incidentally, there is a wealth of online information on Juju candy but most of it is pretty boring and I have enough trouble staying awake without trying to wade through that so you won’t be reading about it here. 4. I don’t remember if I watched that original broadcast but I sort of doubt it; I think it was the mid-fifties or later when television was readily available in our end of town. I can remember watching President Eisenhower’s first inauguration in January of 1953 on one of the few TV sets – when did we quit calling them ‘sets’, by the way? – in town at my Uncle Mike’s house. But you know what, now that I think of it, this discussion is all a moot point anyway; I know now that I never watched it. March 19 would have been in the middle of Lent and I can guarantee you that the Nuns at St John’s Elementary would have had a conniption fit if they thought anyone was watching TV or going to the movies during that time of sacrifice and abstinence.

Armed and Deadly: Police UK (C5, 10pm) Monday, 12/3/2018 Britain's armed police officers are busier than ever. But how do they make the life-changing, sometimes life-ending, decision on when to pull the trigger? And how do they deal with the consequences? Last year, these men and women carried out more than 16,000 operations in England and Wales, and every day they face marauding fugitives, organised crime, tense hostage situations or the ever-increasing threat of terror. For the first time, they speak openly about their operations they remember most and the decisions they made. Interviewees include Tony Long, a leading police marksman who pulled the trigger on three different operations, but then found himself charged with murder. Plus, we hear from the officers who tracked down and caught fugitive Raoul Moat.

Outside living & the constant danger of slipping on tiled terraces Have you ever slipped on wet tiles? When tiles become wet they often become perilously slippery. Tiles around the pool, steps, in kitchens & bathrooms, on terraces inside and outside all become dangerously slippery to walk on, especially after rain, mopping or when they become wet from spillages. Now the days are colder, more damp is in the air and tiles often do not dry completely, which makes them dangerous. . Did you know that slipping and falling is the 2nd largest cause of hospital visits in Spain? Did you also know that if you own a Commercial or Rental property in Spain, you're legally obliged to ensure the safety of your customers? Fortunately the Antislip-Guys have an efficient and cost - effective solution. The Anti-Slip treatment gives a deep cleaning of tiles using a special Anti-Slip product which works by significantly increasing the efficiency of friction on wet surfaces. The result is that your foot grip is dramatically increased. Your existing tiles will be much safer and for a fraction of the cost of replacing them and all without changing their appearance. The Anti-Slip treatment comes with a 5 year guarantee. In addition they also clean a huge range of hard surfaces with professional results that jet washing cannot achieve, whether on patios, driveways, terraces, pool coronations or balustrades. They can also seal the surface afterwards to protect it from further staining. This special cleaning system combines high pressure water, rotary action cleaning to remove dirt & grime defacing your tiles. The Antislip Guys in Costa Blanca have more than 30 years’ experience in the cleaning and antislip industry in both UK and Spain. They´ve seen the results of using poor products, purchased in D.I.Y shops that damage tiles, and have spent considerable time developing their specialised AntiSlip treatment which is manufactured exclusively for their use in the UK and the Costa Blanca. It´s time to protect yourself and others, while keeping your property clean, slip free and safe.

Before your next slip & fall, call the Antislip Guys today on: 685 010 306 Email: info@antislip.es or find more about them on Facebook page Antislip or on their web site
