Strange News: Blow up dolls have been around for years, but husband dolls? Meirivone Rocha Moraes has found her soulmate in the life-size doll she calls her husband – and the pair have even gone on to have a ‘baby’.

Little did she realise it would be love at first sight, and after a few months of dating Meirivone she fell ‘pregnant’. They decided to tie the knot before the newborn arrived in a ceremony that was attended by 250 people. Unsurprisingly, the birth was a painless one, with Meirivone claiming it took just 35 minutes. “It was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional,”. “He is a man I always wanted in my life. Married life with him is wonderful.” Meirivone continued: “He doesn’t fight with me, he doesn’t argue and he just understands me. Marcelo is a great and faithful husband. He is such a man and all women envy him. “When my mum made Marcelo and first introduced me to him, I fell in love with him. It was love at first sight. The couple had a ‘baby’ this year. “The wedding was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. It rained a lot but it was wonderful.”But as is often the case, marriage isn’t always easy, with the doll-mum-of-one adding: ““He has so many great qualities but the only downside is he’s lazy. He doesn’t work at all. “But I am a warrior and I keep it going for us.”

Go take a HIKE!

Tajo de Ronda, the gorge-eous walk! This is a very popular area for hiking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime. This is a relatively straightforward walk around Ronda’s gorge the Tajo de Ronda. The walk starts in the Plaza de Campillo (also known as the Plaza de María Auxiliadora) – shown below. An exceptionally beautiful square, with two huge Pinsapo fir trees that provide welcome shade. These endemic Spanish fir trees date from the Iceage. The neighbouring natural park of Grazalema is one of the last remaining habits of what many consider to be Andalucia’s national tree (along with the smaller Pinsapo forest in the Sierra de las Nieves natural park.) As you go down there are various spots where you can veer off and get a better look at Ronda’s bridge – the Puente Nuevo. The

most iconic symbol of the city and known the world over.A true feat of engineering, the ‘new’ bridge was inaugurated in 1793, after 40 years of work. It stands at 98m and offers unbeatable views over the Guadiaro river valley and the Sierra de Grazalema. Difficulty level: Medium

There’s a lot at STEAK!!

BBQing a Sirloin Steak... Prepare the sirloin roast on the gas grill or charcoal grill for indirect cooking by pushing all lit coals to one side or by lighting only half of the gas grill burners. Indirect heat is preferred for a sirloin roast because it cooks the meat at a lower temperature, preventing it from burning. Rub all sides of the sirloin roast liberally with the seasoning mix. Consider using spices that go well with traditional barbecue flavor such as pepper, garlic, mustard powder, paprika and chili powder. Grill your steak as you normally would, and when finished, braise the cooked meat with the melted garlic butter, then sprinkle on the cracked pepper. Wrap them in aluminum foil and let them sit for about five minutes. Unwrap and enjoy! Picking out quality steaks takes a bit of

know-how. You want to pick meat with vibrant red color. Avoid meat that has a gray tinge to it. This indicates the meat’s been sitting for a while. It’s still safe to eat, but the flavor may not be as robust compared to a fresher steak. BBQ as with any style of cooking depends on top quality ingredients. Pick the best meats for your summer BBQs and contact Martin at Ye Olé butchery for the best quality meats around. Delivery Available. See advert below

Look good on the beach without a perfect body! How to look good on the beach without a perfect body... Swimsuits are pretty unforgiving. They’re great for showing off a perfect body, but they’ll also reveal love handles, a flat bum, and a small cup size. Since beach season is already here, it’s too late to schedule plastic surgery for this year’s beaching. In the meantime, use these tips to rock your swimsuit no matter what body type you have. Pick a swimsuit with a focal point. The key to looking great in a swimsuit is to draw the eye to the areas of the body that you feel most confident about. For example, a swimsuit with a brooch at the cleavage point will naturally draw the eye to this decorative feature and away from problem areas. Think about your body type before you go shopping for a swimsuit. For example, if you’re a pear shape, you carry more weight on the bottom than on top. Look for a suit

that will draw the attention upward. Choose a swimsuit with the opposite effect if you want to draw attention away from your top. Shapewear isn’t just for formal occasions. Many designers are building shapewear fabrics into swimsuits. These can take up to an inch off your appearance. It’s worth it to shell out a little extra money for a shapewear swimsuit with special construction, boning, and padding that will make you look fabulous. A solid colour works well for most women. But if you do pick a patterned suit, avoid stripes at all costs. Avoid cutouts, suits without built-in bra support, and metallic swimsuits as well.

Do women find a penis attractive? Female survey (age group 25-55yrs) revealing a womens thoughts on penis attraction... Sarah (Estepona): All my friends agree the things are just plain ugly. We like men, but penises are just something we only enjoy during intercourse, otherwise not interested really, it kind of just hangs there until needed! Beverly (Benalmadena): Well, every penis looks different! some penis’s are quite nice. Some have nice shapes, colour, length and width.. all around.. yes, quite attractive. As a woman, you want it, you have 2 have it! But some are just repulsive and disgusting to look at...which I dont thnk any woman would be aroused by! Anne (Torremolinos) The first time I saw one I was taken back more so by curiosity than much else. I still don’t really find them ‘attractive’. If I see them on tv I have the urge to laugh because they look funny and for me

dicks, big or small, aren’t really sexy at all sorry! Emma (Mijas) I’m not sure that I would say that my first reaction on encountering a penis was that of attraction, I was far more taken with the wonders of a man’s eyes, his lips and his glorious hands. BUT, I was certainly curious about his penis. I think that I have finally come to appeciate all the pleasures that a well trained penis can give a woman. You learn how both he and his penis work together, feeling him getting turned on and go through all the stages until he’s pulsating and hard. At that point I’m totally at the hight of arousal and find a penis attractive LOL!

All that glitters is not gold... Did you know that almost all of the Earths gold came from outer space from meteorites hitting the planet? Here are some common facts about gold... Gold is the only metal that is yellow or “golden.” Other metals may develop a yellowish color, but only after they have oxidized or reacted with other chemicals. Nearly all the gold on Earth came from meteorites that bombarded the planet over 200 million years after it formed. The element symbol for gold—Au—comes from the old Latin name for gold, aurum, which means “shining dawn” or “glow of sunrise.” The word gold comes from the Germanic languages, originating from the Proto-Germanic gulþ and Proto-IndoEuropean ghel, meaning “yellow/green.” The pure element has been known since ancient times. Gold is extremely ductile. A single ounce of gold (about 28 grams) can be stretched into a gold thread 5 miles (8 kilometers) long. Gold threads can even be used in embroidery. Malleability is a measure of how easily a material can be hammered into thin sheets. Gold is the most malleable element. A single ounce of gold can be beaten into a 300-square-foot sheet. A sheet of gold can be made thin enough to be transparent. Very thin sheets of gold may appear greenish blue because gold strongly reflects red and yellow. Mercury Pollution from Gold Rush Might Linger 10,000 Years Although gold is a heavy, dense metal, it is generally considered nontoxic. Gold metal flakes may be eaten in foods or drinks, although it is a common allergen for some.1 Pure elemental gold is 24 karats, while 18-karat gold is 75 percent pure gold, 14-karat gold is 58.5 percent pure gold, and 10-karat gold is 41.7 percent pure gold. The remaining portion of the metal usually used in gold jewelry and other items is silver, but items can also consist of other metals or a combination of metals, such as platinum, copper, palladium, zinc, nickel, iron, and

cadmium. Gold is a noble metal. It is relatively unreactive and resists degradation by air, moisture, or acidic conditions. While acids dissolve most metals, a special mixture of acids called aqua regia is used to dissolve gold. Gold has many uses aside from its monetary and symbolic value. Among other applications, it is used in electronics, electrical wiring, dentistry, medicine, radiation shielding, and in coloring glass. High-purity metallic gold is odorless and tasteless. This makes sense since the metal is unreactive. Metal ions confer flavor and odor to metallic elements and compounds.

Slap it on and keep cool!

It’s important to protect your skin from both types of UV rays because neither one is safe. And, your environment can impact how strong they are. The following factors can impact how much your skin is exposed to UV rays: The time of day: 10 am to 4 pm is when UV rays are strongest. Distance from equator: The closer you are to the equator, the stronger the UV rays are. Elevation: Higher elevation means more exposure. Reflection off surfaces: Sand, snow, and water may reflect sunlight, increasing UV ray exposure. Length of time: The longer your skin is exposed, the greater your risk. Sunscreen is an effective way to minimise your risk of skin cancer and signs of early skin aging caused by the sun. Generally everyone should wear sunscreen anytime

they’re outdoors. The way you apply sunscreen impacts how effectively it protects your skin. The best way to apply sunscreen is to lather it on 15 to 30 minutes before you expose your skin to the sun. You can reduce your risk of sunburn by reapplying every two hours or sooner if you’re swimming. Hats with brims at least three inches in diameter are an effective way to limit your face’s exposure to UV rays. The sun’s UV rays are strongest between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm so try to stay in the shade during these times. Slap it on and keep cool!

The GBP/EUR exchange rate traded erratically over the past month, with the pairing fluctuating between €1.18 and €1.16, while EUR/GBP ticked up from £0.84 to £0.85. What’s been happening? The pound fluctuated through most of the past month, with political jitters and economic concerns rocking the currency. Meanwhile, signals from the European Central Bank that it will raise interest rates in July and September were welcomed by EUR investors. Although concerns the hikes will have an uneven impact on the Eurozone economy limited the euro’s upside potential. At the same time, the war in Ukraine

continued to influence the GBP/EUR exchange rate, infusing volatility into the pairing. What do you need to look out for? GBP investors are likely to keep a close eye on UK economic data over the next month as they seek to gauge whether the UK is at risk of slipping into a recession. Meanwhile, with no end in sight for the war in Ukraine, its likely the conflict could continue to act as a headwind for the euro.

What is Parasailing and where can I do it?

Parasailing, also known as parascending, paraskiing or parakiting, is a recreational kiting activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that resembles a parachute, known as a parasail wing. The manned kite’s moving anchor is a boat. The harness attaches the occupant to the parasail, which is connected to the boat by the tow rope. The boat goes, carrying the parascender (or wing) and person into the air. If the boat is powerful enough, two or three people can parasail behind it at the same time. The parascender has little or no control over the parachute. The activity is primarily a fun ride for all to enjoy. There are commercial parasailing operations all over the world and right here on our doorstep. Pirate Parasailing Team are the only fully registered and professional parasailing team in Fuengirola. You’ll find the

Pirates office in the main Port Ticket Office in Fuengirola port.

Lump Wood Charcoal.. what is it?

Lump charcoal, also known as natural charcoal, is made up of bits of wood that have been subjected to extremely high temperatures until all that is left is pure carbon (mostly). Because it burns hotter than briquettes, I think this variety is ideal for cooking red meats like steaks and lean pork. It also imparts a natural smoky flavor to your cuisine. Make sure the lump charcoal is derived from responsibly harvested hardwood. Good lump charcoal is made entirely of hardwood, with no fillers, additions, or binders. There shouldn’t be many sparks either. A lump charcoal bag usually contains a variety of hardwoods (commonly oak, beech, and ash), rather than a single species. Different hardwood species, on the other hand, have varied flavor profiles. Lighter woods, such as maple, have a sweeter flavor, which is ideal for white meat cooking. Darker woods (oak and hickory) have a more robust flavor, which is perfect

for red meat. Remember that single-species lumps are rare to come by; they’re commonly found in the form of briquettes. In Spain we generally have olive woods, eucalyptus and oak which are all good hardwood sources. High-quality bags of lump charcoal will have mostly large, uniform wood-shaped pieces; the larger they are, the longer and hotter they burn. Also, be mindful of the amount of charcoal dust at the bottom of the bag; these are useless for grilling and can cause excessive sparking.

MMA..Multi Martial Arts MMA, no it’s not a drug it’s Multi Martial Arts... THE FIRST MMA FIGHTERS WERE THE ANCIENT GREEKSThe most ancient style of unarmed combat, which resembles the MMA of today, was called Pankration. In 648 BC this sport was Olympic, then it was transformed into more severe types in Ancient Rome, and the statues of the famous fighters decorated coliseums in different cities they were held there. It is clear that the legendary gladiators also possessed these techniques one better than the other. Everyone has heard this name, but not many people know that Bruce Lee’s philosophy and fighting style was called “jeet kun do”: a fighter could instantly adapt to any opponent’s fighting style. That’s the teachings of Lee and his films had a direct impact on the formation of MMA so that the great Lee was called the father of the sport. Surrender of the opponent, which

is to refuse to fight further. This may be the unwillingness to suffer serious injury, the inability to endure the pain through force, when the last forces are running out, and the opponent confidently begins a series of knockout punches. The refusal or termination of the fight may be declared by the fighter himself, members of his team, or the referee, when the defeated fighter is unconscious.

Toning Time!

This months “Building the bum of your dreams” is easier than you think: Step-ups are another great exercise to work on a round bum. To get started, make sure that you choose a platform high enough that your knee is at a 90-degree angle when bent. If that’s a little too much, use the second stair on a staircase and hold onto the rail for balance. Stand in front of the step or platform. Place your right foot on the step. Pressing into your heel, step up, touching your left toes to the step.

BEACH BUM Summer 22!

Keeping your right foot on the step, bring your left foot down to the floor. Bend your knee into a lunge for more intensity. Repeat for 1 to 3 sets of 12 to 16 repetitions or slowly build up to that depending on your level of fitness.

le ab e ar ssiv e b a Un f M iew e o ev h t T gh t R i n We Tale CAST:Nocolas Cage. This is a movie made specifically for the brand of Cage fan most dedicated to the actor’s body of work. The kind of person I’m talking about is the sort that’s willing to give just about any movie a shot so long as Cage makes an appearance in it; the kind of person who holds the perception that no matter whether the movie is any good or not, you’re likely going to see something novel and/or highly unusual in his performance. Such is the reputation of Cage, 40 years into an acting career that shows no signs of slowing down, and has lost none of the peculiar spirit that’s made him one of Hollywood’s most enduring actors. And that reputation can sometimes be unfairly boiled down to overly reductive caricature....

Random Joke!

There were two statues in a park, one of a naked man, and one of a naked woman. They had been facing each other for a thousand years across a pathway, when one day an angel comes down, and with a single gesture brings the two to life. The angel tells them, “As a reward for being so patient through a thousand blazing summers and dismal winters, you have been given life for thirty minutes to do what you’ve wished to do the most.” He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running behind the trees. The angel waits patiently as the bushes rustle and giggling ensues. After fifteen minutes, the two return, out of breath and laughing. The angel tells them, “Um, you still have fifteen minutes left, would you care to do it

again?” He asks her “Shall we?” She eagerly replies, “Oh, yes, lets! But lets change positions. This time, I’ll hold the pigeon down and you sh#it on its head.”!

Upcycling.. The new IKEA!

What’s the most important thing you need to upcycle furniture? Of course the first thing you need is furniture… Maybe you have an old piece of furniture in your home? Or you could look in charity shops, car boot sales, auction houses, freecycle or ebay. Look for a piece of furniture that is solidly built it’s hard to upcycle furniture that’s made of flimsy cardboard. Items with carving or ornate details stand out from the mass-produced furniture of today. These details also lend themselves to upcycling techniques such as gilding or dusting with gold leaf. Search for furniture with some evidence of use, such as worn areas or a patina. This adds personality and a sense of nostalgia. Chalk paints are good for a matt or chalky finish. They’re ideal for beginners as they don’t need to be primed. After painting you can sand for a distressed look. Target the

31

areas that would see the most wear and tear, such as the arms of chairs or the edges of a drawer. Then lightly sand or matt varnish the stressed areas to make them look authentic and attractive. For drawers try using different maertials like fabrics and chicken wire, get funky with the sander and paints. Sometimes all it takes is new handles and wallpaper to line the drawers. Perhaps chicken wire to replace door panels. On other occasions it may take a little more thought…

What is an NFT?

So what exactly is an NFT? Imagine buying a piece of digital artwork on the Internet at a reasonable price and getting a unique digital token known which proves your authority over the artwork you bought. Wouldn’t it be great? Well, that opportunity exists now, thanks to NFTs. NFTs are currently taking the digital art and collectables world by storm. Just as everyone worldwide believed Bitcoin was the digital answer to currency, NFTs are now pitched as the digital answer to collectibles. As a result, digital artists are seeing their lives changing thanks to the massive sales to a new crypto audience. NFT means non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which are generally created using the same type of programming used for cryptocurrencies. In simple terms these cryptographic assets are based on blockchain technology. They cannot be exchanged or traded equivalently like other cryptographic assets. Like Bitcoin or Ethereum. The term

NFT clearly represents it can neither be replaced nor interchanged because it has unique properties. Physical currency and cryptocurrency are fungible, which means that they can be traded or exchanged for one another. The majority of NFTs reside on the Ethereum cryptocurrency’s blockchain, a distributed public ledger that records transactions. NFTs are individual tokens with valuable information stored in them. Because they hold a value primarily set by the market and demand, they can be bought and sold just like other physical types of art. NFTs’ unique data makes it easy to verify and validate their ownership and the transfer of tokens between owners.

Hey! Did you know that CBD Rocks!!!

CBD Rocks will bring you reliable information and advice on CBD each month. We also offer free consultation service so that you can call upon us at any point! Well one thing it is NOT is a drug that will get you high. That is the first misconception. The best thing about CBD is you can take it and go about your day as normal. CBD (the long word being cannabidiol) is one cannabinoid out of over 100 found in the hemp plant (not marihuana) both being the children of what we know as cannabis. Let’s get down to the basics. We have all heard about this CBD and that it can help one in so many ways, but why? Why is it so special? How can it do so much? The scientific answer is very long but in reality, it’s very simple. Scientists found out in the early 90ś that we have what is now known as an endocannabinoid system. In this system, our bodies also have receptors all over the place that

36

react and respond with CBD and all other cannabinoids(CBG,CBC,THC,etc) . These are known as CB1 and CB2 receptors and apparently they have now found a number 3!. These receptors activate when we take CBD and they tell our system to produce the right amount of chemicals to create our own internal natural balance (homeostasis). It really is as simple as that. CBD allows our own bodies to do the work not like the meds we are given most of the time. Amazing right? There really is the short version but it is understandable and that is what CBDrocks is here for, making it simple.

A fully independent Ukraine emerged only late in the 20th century, after long periods of successive domination by PolandLithuania, Russia, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.). Ukraine had experienced a brief period of independence in 1918–20, but portions of western Ukraine were ruled by Poland, Romania, and Czechoslovakia in the period between the two World Wars, and Ukraine thereafter became part of the Soviet Union as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (S.S.R.). When the Soviet Union began to unravel in 1990–91, the legislature of the Ukrainian S.S.R. declared sovereignty (July 16, 1990) and then outright independence (August

Why CRASH diets are a bad idea Crash dieting is when you cut your calorie intake dramatically to lose weight fast. So why is it a bad idea? Crash Diets Do More Harm Than Good Yes, the popular diet style might help you lose weight fast, but it also diminishes your cognition, performance ability and energy levels. If you lose a quick five pounds, that could all be water your body needs to perform at a high level. Losing that water will not only reduce your energy to perform, it will also make you weaker and slower. Some Don’t Encourage Exercise. Have you seen the cleanses or diets that advertise, “And you don’t even have to exercise!” This claim should come with a big red flag. Exercise doesn’t just help you lose weight it helps prevent regaining weight. When you exercise, the amount of fatty acid utilized by your skeletal muscles increases, making it easier for your body to maintain your new, lower weight. The next thing to go when you crash diet is muscle. The body needs fuel, and when you don’t give it enough calories, it starts breaking down its own muscle. This makes you weaker and negatively affects what you need to do. Frankly, They’re Not Fun Another unpleasant characteristic of crash diets is that they are boring. Since your calorie intake drops, you have fewer food options to choose from. You tend to eat the same food every day, which can make you sick of it very quickly. Finally, a crash diet affects your mental and physical performance. When you don’t eat a sufficient number of calories, you become more fatigued, which can lead you to become unable to focus in the classroom or at work. Crash diets are tempting due to their promise of fast results, but these rarely last for the long term. The results you see from them are misleading and are usually quickly reversed. The best diet plan is one that stresses realistic long term expectations.

Most diets today focus on calorie-restriction, but our bodies end up rejecting this idea. When calories are suddenly cut drastically, the body thinks it’s starving and works to protect its set fat point by slowing down metabolism to try and store fat, rather than burning it. Crash diets often result in a lower weight showing up on the scale, but not necessarily fat loss. This weight loss is due to water loss, which can quickly be gained back. These diets can be harmful, as protein and water are the first nutrients the body loses, which causes people to feel weak and tired. Not only do crash diets cut out bad fats, they cut the good fats out that provide essential fatty acids. When cutting fat, it is important to eat less bad fat while maintaining good fat. Without essential fatty acids, our proper fatburning metabolism may suffer. Many crash dieters end up eating more and regaining more fat once they stop the diet; since the body had been running on the fat it once had, it tries to get it back. Crash diets don’t take into account how insulin, carbohydrates and fat storage affect one another. By cutting calories, blood sugar is likely to drop, causing the body to be hungry and want to binge on carbs. Altogether crash diets are not advised

Where did the bikini come from?

Where did the bikini come from? One of the most significant moments in the history of women’s swimwear was the creation of the bikini in 1946. The design of the bikini is credited to two separate designers who introduced the revolutionary garment at the same time. Jacques Heim, a French fashion designer, created a minimalist two-piece swimming garment in May 1946, called the Atome. Heim’s Atome featured a bra-like top and bottoms which covered the bottom and navel. Later that year, in July 1946, Louis Réard, an engineer turned designer, created what he called the bikini. Réard’s skimpy design, pictured in figure 11, consisted of only four triangles of material that were held together with string. The two designs competed for public attention and whilst Heim’s garment was the first to be worn on a beach, it was the term bikini, as coined by Réard, that stuck.



THERES A NEW WING IN TOWN Have you just witnessed someone zipping around some waves with a surfboard 2 feet above the water while holding onto a giant inflatable wing? If so, you just witnessed the latest craze of wingfoiling – and this craze is here to stay.

Wing Foiling is the art of riding a hydrofoil board while harnessing the wind’s power via a handheld wing. If you’re not familiar with a hydrofoil, we’ll cover that in a moment. The beauty of the sport is that you can wing foil on almost any body of water. You’re using a hydrofoil, which thanks to the physics behind it, creates lift so that you don’t need a breaking wave to move, making unbroken, open ocean swells accessible. And if you live far away from the ocean you can still wing foil on lakes and large bodies of water thanks to the wing harnessing the wind which gives you speed and elevates the foil quickly. What is a hydrofoil surfboard? A hydrofoil surfboard is basically a surfboard with a hydrofoil mounted to the bottom. The hydrofoil refers to the mast, top plate, fuselage, front wing and back wing which are attached to the underside of a surfboard towards the rear and it uses similar physics to an aeroplane’s wings to generate lift to get the board up out of the

water. Wings come in all shapes and sizes and are a versatile tool, which allows you to use the power of the wind when you need it and neutralise it in an instant when you don’t, giving you even more freedom and manoeuvrability during your session on the water. The great advantage of wing foiling is that your foil board, once it’s above the water, minimises drag, increases acceleration and top speed and allows for breathtakingly agile manoeuvres. If you are new to wing foiling, a good time to have your debut in this sport would be on a day with average wind conditions (between 15 and 20 knots of wind) on a spot that is not exposed to swell. You should wait for a cross-on shore wind to avoid the risk of being blown out to sea.

Once you have mastered your first encounter with the wing you can progress to enjoying wing foiling even on super light wind days. The awesome thing about this sport is that you can get out and have a great session even on days, on which with your windsurfing or kitesurfing gear you would probably not even get into the water.


Choosing a wing with a handle or a wishbone? The wishbone or boom is a bar similar to that on a windsurf sail. It is rigid, whereas handles are lighter, more flexible and offer more possibilities for grip positions. Which one you choose will come down to your personal preference, so if possible, try testing both to see which suits you best. As with all new sports, it’s best to take a few lessons to get the grips with the styles of riding and the verity of kit on the market.

Leash and wing: Inseparable Most manufacturers provide a leash with their wings. But if they don’t, then you need to purchase one separately. The leash is mandatory, it connects you to your wing like a lifeline. In wing foil, you will have two leashes. The one on your wrist to connect you to the wing and a second one on your waist or ankle attaching you to the board. Wing foiling vs. wing surfing - what is the difference? Although nowadays a lot of people use “wing foiling” and “wing surfing” as a synonym for riders on a board with a handheld wing, strictly speaking there is a difference in regard to the board being used. While during “wing foiling” the rider is on a hydrofoil surfboard, “wing surfing” refers to the rider using a surfboard, paddleboard or other board without a foil. The trickiest part about wing foiling is learning how to ride the hydrofoil surfboard. Once you have mastered the foil board, handling the wing is quite easy to learn and can be practiced on land.

Do I need a new board to wing foil? It depends on your board. If you have a board that is foiling-approved by the manufacturer, then give it a go. However the foil puts a lot of pressure on your finbox and in the long run it could possibly damage your board. So maybe it’s wiser to invest in getting a specifically designed hydrofoil board. It’s up to you.

Where to learn how to wingsurf? Well generally if you want to learn any wind watersport and you live in Málaga, you should definitly visit Tarifa. Because of the evolution of wing foiling / surfing, you will find that most kitesurf schools will offer wing foil lessons with only a minority specifically focused on wing foiling only. Not only will you see first hand people practicing the sport, but you can approach any of the kiteschools on the beach and they will guide you towards the information you require - Hit the elements!

Golf tips from the “19th Hole!”

It’s been said before, “Golf is a simple game made difficult by those who play it!” As the month of July on the Costa del Golf is normally too hot to venture out onto the fairways, unless of course you are one of those that arrive from the north specifically to play the numerous and beautiful courses that we have here. I thought this would be a good month to look at some of the rules that govern this frustrating game. Included are my interpretations of “Local/ social/society rules”. We are all amateurs and sometimes we “modify” the rules to accommodate an enjoyable round of golf with friends. The thing that we all need to remember and consider is that the rules Local/Social/Society or otherwise are designed to be fair and that at no time whilst playing a round a player gains an advantage other than when an obstruction, not considered as part of the course, impedes a swing. Wherever you ball ends up – you put it there! Most score cards identify where the course boundaries are normally marked with white stakes. For us amateurs when a ball is deemed to be Out of Bounds or lost and if a Local Rule is in effect, you can still take stroke and distance relief, but you now have another option: Determine the spot where your ball went OOB or is likely to be lost Find the nearest fairway edge no closer to the hole Drop your ball within 2 club lengths of the point of relief. This negates the need to return to where the last shot was played thereby keeping the game moving. The penalty for this drop is 2 shots – not one. Another “Local/social/society” rule – Some groups play preferred lies on fairways even if the club has not offered it. But a “social” preferred lie is when the ball is on the fairway – not half way into the Campo!

I still see players when marking their ball on the green placing the marker either at the front or to the side of their ball – come on, we all know that when marking the position of a ball the marker is always placed to the rear of the ball. Another no-no is tamping down behind the ball before you take your shot. Whichever way you look at it the very action of tamping down is an attempt to improve your lie. You may not think so, but why are you doing it, it can only be to improve your lie? Taking a couple of “practice” swings over or around a ball that is buried is also not good form. Thrashing away at long grass or ferns to provide you with a better swing plane is downright cheating. As before - you put it there! It is nigh on impossible to know all the rules generated by the R&A, even most of the leading professions don’t have a clue, that’s why during high level competitions there are Referees on the course. However, it’s all about common sense, fair play and honesty. There are times when the rules can be stretched but should never be broken. As competitive sport we all want to win, but surely not at the expense of having your playing partner or members of your Society thinking of you as someone they would rather not spend up to 4 hours with irrespective of the course, its condition or the weather. So.. in summary think of golf as exercise, fun, a walk in the park or whatever, but don’t cheat. As the saying goes “you are only cheating yourself!” Written by Squadron Leader Shackleton

led ay b r R Ma tric ec El The marbled electric ray (Torpedo marmorata) is a species of electric ray in the family Torpedinidae found in the coastal waters of the eastern Atlantic Ocean from the North Sea to South Africa. This benthic fish inhabits rocky reefs, seagrass beds, and sandy and muddy flats in shallow to moderately deep waters. It can survive in environments with very little dissolved oxygen, such as tidal pools. The marbled electric ray has a nearly circular pectoral fin. Electric rays are unique from other rays in that they lack venomous scales or barbs. Instead, electric rays generate a strong, electric discharge from massive and highly specialised electrogenic organs situated at

the base of the pectoral fins. As an ambush predator, the marbled electric ray will wait patiently in the dark hours of the night until fish, such as gobies, mackerel or damselfish, swim pass. Then, the ray jumps on prey while emitting electrical shocks to stun it. These shocks may produce a charge up to 200 volts, instantly stunning or killing prey before the ray can distend its jaw for swallowing. Because of this ray’s formidable demeanor, few other predators of the sea dare to hunt electric rays.

Voted the best ever beach game!

Voted the best ever beach game! Spikeball has “quickly turned into a summertime staple,” growing in popularity over the past several years. Spikeball (which also received top marks in our round-up of the best outdoors games) is like volleyball but instead of hitting the ball over the net, you bounce the ball off of a net that stands about a foot off the ground. To play, you need four players divided into two teams of two, and each team’s objective is to bounce the ball off the net in a way that prevents the other team from being able to bounce it back. “The object is to hit the ball into the net so the opposing team cannot return it,” Like in volleyball, “a team is allowed up to three touches to return the ball,” and a round, or rally, continues until a team can’t return it. The hyperenthusiastic reviewers of Amazon agree, with one calling Spikeball “the greatest beach game ever invented,”.

What’s gone wrong for Mercedes in F1 2022? WHY MERCEDES IS STRUGGLING IN F1 2022 Mercedes Always used to the 1-2 on the grid over the last few seasons, but what has gone wrong? The root cause of why Mercedes is struggling in the new F1 season is due to the bouncing that has badly affected the car. As part of the new technical rules, ground effect has returned to F1 after decades away. Essentially, you want to run your car as close to the track as possible to create downforce. However, as the Mercedes is picking up downforce at high speed, the ride height of the car decreases. This stops the airflow underneath the car – which causes it to raise slightly. The car then lowers again as it picks up downforce, causing the whole cycle to begin again. It is the first time in his Mercedes

career he has finished P10, and the first time since the 2012 Korean Grand Prix he has done so. Mercedes can simply raise the ride height of the W13 to stop it from bouncing. However, doing this would cause even more performance to be lost as a lower ride height is crucial to a faster laptime. The team says it will get back to the front and be fighting for wins, and it probably will, eventually....

The guard took the sample and put it through a thorough X-ray scan, hoping to find any grains that didn’t belong, but to no avail. As the woman passed the border daily, the guard was left in frustration, pondering every possible reason why anyone would bring sand across the border. In the following weeks, the guard occasionally took a cup of the sand for inspection. After months without results, he delivered a sample to the national secret service and tasked a team of experienced chemical analysts to investigate it extensively. A week later and the only conclusion was that it was normal sand from a nearby beach. One day, he gathered the courage to ask the woman, “It’s my last day at the job, and I will retire with over thirty years of experience as a border guard. Now, you’ve been crossing the border every day for six months, and I’m utterly stumped – why did you always bring two heavy bags of sand across?” The woman replied, “I was smuggling bikes.”! *************************************************** 6 Nuns are in the bathroom, bathing and relaxing.
