Solutions to this week’s puzzles Editorial

Well, this has been a big week, for me, while last week’s edition was beginning to hit the streets, I was busy moving house, in between singing at the mid – week Carvery and performing at the Decades after show party! It was a little hectic to say the least, but we are all moved in now to our “Casa in the Clouds” and it’s fantastic!! Even my wife who I’m sure won’t disagree, isn’t always a morning person, is up at the crack of dawn to watch the

Did you know there’s a fox in Las Americas?! First I didn’t believe it. I have heard him calling every night for 6 weeks now, but not before I saw the trace (a gone pigeon!) after his activities I realized it really is a fox!. Where he has his foxhole I don’t know, but he’s drifting a lot, one I could hear him at El Dorado, another night in

the vicinity of old Siam Park behind Playa Honda. It’s a bit unusual that a fox manage to survive in an urban area I think, but I’m no expert so I don’t know really. Just thought I wanted to tell you about it! Regards Roland

Reader´s Letter Advertisements and pollution in Las Americas! We have been visiting Las Americas every year since 1998. Mainly because of the good climate and the well organised society with its lovely environment. But by the time, we noticed one thing that is not very nice and that is getting worse every year. All the pamphlets, advertising various excursions on the islands is becoming a litter that is floating/flying everywhere on streets and pavements and in parks. The better part of the brochures origins from Scandinavian countries, and being a Scandinavian it is embarrassing to recognise that some of our fellow ‘travel agencies’ are presenting an environment profile that we do not promote in our home countries! What can be done in order to keep up with the basic idea of marketing without producing litter and still catch the tourist’s

interest for the excursion/travel concept? Here is an alternative solution to the problem: In Los Gigantes, 30 km west of Las Americas, the authorities and/or the advertisers seem to have a different approach to this “challenge”. At several places we noticed that the same and similar pamphlets from advertisers were placed in small racks that were attached to building walls or a fence. One of the occasions we were visiting the nice place, a strong wind blowing without flying litter! Perhaps this is something that the authorities in Las Americas can learn from. Thus - to the advertiser – ”clean up your act” and everyone will be a lot happier and your message will reach your customer more effectively, and without littering! Best holiday wishes from Gerd & Roland (from Norway)

Cabildo announces international Tenerife walking festival in 2015

To add to the “farmers’ market” in Playa San Juan, Guía de Isora has announced the opening of a new agricultural market in Guía de Isora town itself. The new market will start this coming Friday in Plaza de Garachico, which is on the main road through the town, on the left in front of the sports and cultural centres. The existing Playa San Juan market is held in Church Square on Wednesdays. Both markets will be open between 8am and 1pm, every week. The council says that the markets offer agricultural produce as well as crafts and artisan works, cakes and sweets, and other products from the municipality. Arona Policía local have confirmed a report in today’s Diario de Avisos that they have closed an illegal betting shop in the municipality. The shop took bets on horse races, and during the raid, some 2,000 euros was seized: police say that they think the business moves around 10,000 euros daily. Police say that the owner of the property had ignored repeated warnings because betting activity was a good sideline to his official business, which is a “classic English pub”. Police say that given other irregularities, the amount of fines likely to be imposed will probably mean that the business has to close. Barranco del Infierno to reopen in 3 months. Just a month or so away from opening now, but people still treat it as though it were open already. In Tenerife, when the authorities say something is closed, they mean “officially” closed. In the UK, it appears, we’re used to things being made inaccessible when they’re closed, roped off, made impossible for us to hurt ourselves. It’s a cultural difference that might cost someone dearly because an emergency rescue is currently underway this afternoon to help walkers who have got into difficulties in the barranco. Charges are now made for such rescues if those needing rescue have been reckless, or ignored official warnings and signs. In this instance, at least three official rescue teams were involved. A truck who’s brakes failed during a ferry crossing between Tenerife and Agaete (Gran Canaria) had to be taken off by crane after hanging over the internal boarding ramp for the entire two-hour trip. The ship’s crew managed to secure the truck from falling any further during the voyage and fortunately, there were no injuries, although the next sailing was delayed by 45 minutes. A 71-year-old man is in critical condition in hospital after suffering an accident while cycling near the town of San Miguel. The accident happened shortly before 2pm, when emergency services were called out with reports that the man had fallen and hit his head very badly in the pasaje Viña Vieja, below the agricultural market on the outskirts of the town. Paramedics stabilized the injured man at the scene and then transferred him to Candelaria Hospital, where he remains in serious condition. A new weather front will be arriving over Saturday from the southwest. At the moment, meteorologists say, it’s difficult to know if it will just bring general instability with some light rain, or whether it will develop into something nastier. They are monitoring the new borrasca and will no doubt advise in due course. Some rain on Sunday and Monday, however, does seem likely.

Senderos de Anaga. Photo: Cabildo


EnErIFE WIll BE the European walking capital between 10 and 15 march next year when some 700 hikers arrive for the Tenerife Walking Festival. The festival is being organized by the Cabildo through Turismo de Tenerife, and the walkers will be based in Puerto de la Cruz where they will enjoy some of the most beautiful hiking routes Tenerife can offer. The senderos will be divided into three categories: volcanic, coastal and Jurassic … forested areas of barely imaginable antiquity like Anaga and Teno. Naturally, walkers will also be able to experience other aspects of those areas, like bodegas, agricultural fincas, museums, sky watching, and so on, the whole event dovetailing with the nichemarket trend for tourism generally in the Canaries Tenerife president Carlos Alonso explained that “the festival is an excellent opportunity to show off the qualities of our island as a walking destination that offers so much more than just sun and sand.” Sr Alonso noted that one of the major benefits for Tenerife is that those attending will belong to clubs and federations throughout Europe, and on their return home will enthuse about their vivid experiences, becoming ambassadors for Tenerife to this far wider audience. Under the new brand Tenerife No Limits, the first preparatory meeting for the walking festival took place this week. Besides the Cabildo’s own technicians,

the meeting was attended by the president of the European Walking Association, Lis Nielsen; the coordinator of senderos from the Spanish Walking Federation, Antonio Turmo; and the president of the Federación Canaria de Montañismo, Concepción Frauendorff. These organizations are collaborating in the organization of the festival together with the Ayuntamiento de Puerto de la Cruz, whose tourism councillor, Carmen Padilla, also attended the meeting. Tenerife has a walking route network of some 100 senderos, reaching in total around 1,500 km, and walking is one of the biggest niche markets among the island’s holidaymakers – some 14% of our tourists come here specifically for this purpose. After next year’s festival, no doubt it will be more!



Tenerife Weekly - 7th March 2014 - 13th March 2014


ast week I looked at the history of that most Spanish style of cuisine, tapas, but tapas isn’t really tapas without a nice Spanish vino to accompany it.

Wine has a history as rich and colorful as the substance itself, but how did the Spanish first discover the art of wine making? It is unclear precisely where vines were first cultivated in Spain or who brought winemaking techniques to the Iberian peninsula. Various sources believe the first vineyards were cultivated on the southwest coast of Andalusia, which seems to be the most likely theory, particularly given the presence of the Phoenicians there approximately 3,000 years ago. They were a trading culture and founded a port in the southwest, which they called Gadir (now Cádiz). Later they moved inland, founding another city they called Xera (now Jerez), where they planted vines in the surrounding hills. By the early Christian era, Spanish wines were one of the most frequently traded products in the Mediterranean and North AfricThe Romans continued to produce wine on the peninsula, introducing their own particular techniques over time. these wines acquired fruity and floral aromas and flavours, and a much-appreciated smoky taste. The need to supply the vast empire and its legions with wine contributed to building up Hispania’s already notable wine trade. The decline of the Roman Empire and invasion of Hispania by northern barbarian tribes brought wine making in Spain to a temporary halt.although the subsequent arrival of the Visigoths counteracted this influence.

The arrival of the Arabs in the 8th century slowed the development of winemaking as the Koran prohibited the consumption of fermented and alcoholic drinks. Despite this religious prohibition, the cultivation of vineyards continued and even prospered under Moslem rule even if they were reoriented to the production of grapes or non-fermented must. Certain dynasties were liberal in their treatment of the dominated Christians and allowed them to continue cultivating vineyards and making wine, particularly in the monasteries. Today Spain has over 2.9 million acres (over 1.17 million hectares) planted—making it the most widely planted wine producing nation, but it is the third largest producer of wine in the world, the largest being France fol-

lowed by Italy. This is due, in part, to the very low yields and wide spacing of the old vines planted on the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions. The country is ninth in worldwide consumptions with Spaniards drinking, on average, 21.6 litres (5.706 US gal) per person a year. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country’s wine production is from only 20 grapes—including the reds Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Monastrell; the whites Albariño from Galicia, Palomino, Airen, and Macabeo; and the three cava grapes Parellada, Xarel•lo, and Cariñena. regions If you’re looking to really delve into and learn about the intricacies of the Spanish wine culture, many of the vineyards and bodegas - some of which are hundreds of years old and feature stunning architecture - offer tours and of course generous samplings. The regions of Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and especially La Rioja boast their deliciously hearty red wines. For top-notch white and sparkling wines, Catalonia’s Penedes region is the place to be, while the Galician region of the Rias Baixas has earned quite a reputation for its array of fruity white wines. Sherry One of Spain’s most famous contributions to the international wine scene is its sherry (jerez). In fact, all of the world’s genuine sherry comes from the region surrounding the small Spanish city of Jerez- which lends its name to its wine product. The sherry varieties, ranging from the light and refreshing manzanillas and finos to the darker and stronger olorosos and Pedro Ximénez, are Spanish wines that are popular throughout Spain, especially in Andalusia, and the world. Cava Cava, Spain’s tasty response to France’s champagne, is a sparkling Spanish wine that hails principally from the Spanish wine regions of Catalonia, Aragón, and Navarre. Like with sherry, its international presence once again puts Spain on the wine radar, as it is now the 2nd largest producer of sparkling wines in the world.

Sangría THE sangría recipe simply does not exist. Depending on the region and on personal preferences, you can find many sangría recipe variations: different fruit ratios, with or without added liqueors, with or without car-


bonation, red wine or white wine, etc. The list certainly goes on. However, here’s one sangría recipe that will give you a pitcher of that cool and delicious summer drink you and your friends are craving: Sangría recipe Ingredients 3 liters of red wine ... or substitute the red wine with white wine for sangría blanca (white sangría) 1 liter of lemonade 2 peaches 1 apple 2 oranges 1 lemon 1 chunk of cinnamon Sugar

Instructions Wash all of the fruit and cut it into chunks. Now add the wine. After letting it all soak together so that the wine absorbs the fruity flavors, add the lemonade, sugar, and cinnamon (at this point you can also add other liqueors if you so desire). Mix everything together, cool it, and then serve it even colder with ice cubes and fruit chunks. Sangría Alternatives Tinto de verano An alternative to sangría, especially in the south, is tinto de verano. Literally meaning “red wine of the summer,” it is equally as refreshing as sangría. Your shopping list is much shorter than for a sangría recipe: just one part red wine combined with one part Casera (you can replace Spanish Casera by mixing lemon soda and tonic water). Like with sangría, ice is a must and a lemon slice sitting on the edge of the glass is certainly a nice touch. Calimocho It’s pretty clear that sangría isn’t the only wine-based beverage in Spain! From the Basque word kalimotxo, this third winemixed drink originated during the 1970’s in the Basque Country and has since spread throughout the rest of the country. A favorite of young Spaniards, it’s cheap yet tasty. Much simpler than the sangría recipe, simply combine one part red wine (some swear that the best wine for calimochos is actually the cheap kind from a box!) and one part cola and you’ll have yourself a drink.

Not Fun At The Fair




by Clio O’Flynn

ocal police closed 31 pitches in the Santa Cruz Carnival fairground, after they were found to be trading without permits or licenses.

Police were called to the fairground early in the evening after a woman reported an incident in which her child suffered a minor accident at one of the attractions. When officers arrived they realized that there were 69 attractions and mobile bars open, when only 38 had been authorized to trade, so the offending businesses were forcibly closed Fairground workers objected and the atmosphere became tense, with increased numbers of police being called in. In total, 30 local officers, a Unipol unit and National Police

by support was requested. One woman was arrested

for gross disobedience to authority.

plátano de Canarias campaign: “Banana rain”


hE ASSOCIATIOn OF Banana Producer Organisations of the Canary Islands (ASPrOCAn) is launching a promotional campaign at domestic level that will aim to convey the values of effort and proximity, while stressing on the qualities that make Canarian bananas stand out from their competitors. With the idea of sending a “little piece of the Canary Islands” to the peninsular market each day, Plátano de Canarias wants Spanish homes to receive a dose of vitality and energy in the form of a “banana rain”, and it will do so based on aspects such as the fruit’s sweetness, energy, optimism, happiness and flavour. These will not be presented as a mere wish from Canarian banana producers, but sustained on the fruit’s nutritional composition, with aspects such as the high tryptophan contents; a vital amino acid for

the correct functioning of the nervous system, which plays a key role in the activation of the neurotransmitters related to comfort, pleasure and good mood. Other better known properties of Canarian bananas, which make it an ideal fruit for all kinds of diets, are also mentioned, such as the presence of vitamins B and C and folic acid; its high potassium and magnesium content, and its vegetable fibre, which has antioxidant properties and helps prevent degenerative diseases.

t’s that time of the year when everyone dresses in glitter, sequins, feathers and stage make-up, men dress as women, music blares, drinks flow and everyone goes just a little bit crazy for a I’m not talking about Vivo’s staff party, it is of course Carnaval time in Tenerife!!

Unfortunately I was far too busy singing afternoons for the midweek carvery, singing evenings at the Decades after-show party and of course, putting together this little newspaper to make it up there myself, but fortunately, two fantastic photographers, Sir Old Golfer and Gerard Zenou were on hand with their trusty cameras to capture the essence of the fiestas with photos so vivid, you can almost smell the churros!! Thanks to you both, and to everyone else, enjoy our Carnaval photo gallery!

The water it ‘tinkles’ is cool, fresh and safe to drink except during rare prolonged hot spells in the area in some years, but then park rangers will put up a sign warning you of the possibility that it may not be entirely safe to sip. How did the miracle of the water-passing tree come about ? Well, come and see for yourself if you can unravel the puzzling phenomenon…

rEEnPEACE PrOTESTErS put symbolic gags on several sculptures in the Canary islands this Saturday in protest against the Spanish Public Safety Act, as part of an initiative that has been repeated in more than twenty Spanish cities.

Greenpeace demands the Government reject this bill and follow the recommendations made by various international organizations defending human rights, asking them to protect the right of assembly and freedom of expression.

The organization said that in a democracy , these fundamental rights mean even civil disobedience is legitimate to promote social and environmental changes and ways to policy reforms. They argue that the Public Safety Act is a “direct and disproportionate” response against different forms of peaceful civil protest taking place due to the current economic crisis. Under the new act activities that Greenpeace often use as forms of protest, such as scaling public buildings, are made illegal.

Accion del Sol News Live Aricco News

ACCIOn dEl SOl WOuld lIKE TO remind you all that as well as registering your dog at your local Ayunimento regardless of breed or size that the following dogs do require an additional “Dangerous Dog Licence” Pit Bull Terrier; Staffordshire Bull Terrier; American Staffordshire Terrier; Rottweiler; Dogo Argentino; Fila Brasileiro; Tosa Inu Akita. What you need to do to get your dangerous dog legalised in Tenerife is a question we are very often asked, it involves a lot of red tape and some rather unusual processes to go through, but it is quite simply the law. Please don´t let complexities put you off because if you truly love your dog, you will want to protect it and safeguard its future as well as doing everything within your power to avoid any sort of tragedy. The information was kindly supplied by Marion of the Accion del Sol dogs´ refuge at Granadilla and Marion would be happy to explain anything you don´t understand if you would like to phone, visit or email. You will see from our list which breeds are classified as potentially dangerous and need a special licence and are subject to strict controls such as needing to be muzzled when being walked (and only one at a time) and only owned by someone over 18 and without a police record. You might think you would never be stopped but the police everywhere are being more vigilant about this problem and do conduct spot checks. You first step is to go to the SAC office at your local town hall and request a form known as Solicitud de Inscripcion en el Censo de Animales Domesticos Y/O Potencialmente Peligrosos. You will need various papers such as your NIE and passport and your dog´s microchipping evidence etc. The document is in Spanish. Next, surprisingly, you have to take yourself to your local centro medico and have a medi-

cal which will determine if you are fit to keep a potentially dangerous dog (eyesight, blood pressure, reactions etc) and why you want one. You will also be asked to take a questionnaire with 60 questions. This is the main cost involved at 53 euros. A visit to the Mapfre building in Santa Cruz is also necessary to obtain a certificate which will eventually be returned to you confirming you have no criminal record. If you do, you will not be allowed to get a licence. You also need to take out dog insurance with a minimum cover of 120,000 euros (on your house insurance or a separate policy) and will need to sign and complete another form from the SAC (Peticion de Antecedentes Penales de Registro Central de Penados y Rebeldes). Eventually, you take all the papers, micro chipping document, inoculation verifications etc back to the SAC and you will receive a preliminary certificate. Subject to all the paperwork being correct, your licence will be issued in a month or so later. As you might guess, this whole process is lengthy and complicated but it is the right way to get your potentially dangerous dog legalised. You should also be aware that if someone else is walking your dog and it attacks a person or another animal, it is still your responsibility, not the minder´s. Your premises should also display a dangerous dog sign and you should always carry your licence and the dog´s paperwork when walking the dog.. You must also take these steps if you want to adopt a dangerous dog breed from a refuge and should not be allowed to take it away until you have the paperwork. It is, we are sure you will agree, quite an eye opener to discover the procedures involved which take around two months. But the law is the law and the only way not to fall foul of it is to bite the bullet and get on with it!

help for Candy

Candy was rescued from Adeje kennels just before Christmas by our friend Regina Queder who runs MADAT - Manos Amigos de los Animales Tenerife. Candy has a congenital heart defect called Ductus Arterioso Persistiente. To you and me that means that when she was born one of the arteries which allows blood to flow from one side of the heart to the other did not close off properly. If Candy does not have an operation then her life could be very hard. She may not survive much longer, and during this time she will become short of breath due to the lack of oxygenated blood flow, which will put extra strain on her heart and body. The operation is open heart surgery, and there will be a need for intensive recuperation and care

In COllABOrATIOn with Hospivet Sur, Las Chafiras we are subsidising sterilisation costs for the fourth time. Female cat 81 euros.

New eNeRgY effICIeNT BUILdINg RegULATIONS Liquid gas installations are also included in the proposal


hE AdEJE COunCIl for urban planning, José maría Álvarez Acosta, has proposed the modification of the building regulations to introduce a series of energy saving measures as well as the regulation of liquid gas installations. The proposal will be put before a meeting of the council this Friday.

ACCIOn dEl SOlS EduCATIOnAl PrOGrAmmE continues in earnest with more and more schools visiting the refuge, this is excellent news for our animal welfare situation here in Tenerife. We will also soon be announcing a new purpose built classroom sponsored by Aktiontier in one of Granadillas schools where children will learn about animal welfare and environmental issues. Accion Del Sol has a new employee who goes by the name “Hope” , she is not your usual member of staff as she herself was a rescue dog, but she now has the job of boosting moral amongst her friends and generally lending a helping “Paw” where needed. She found her first day very tiring but she managed to have a little siesta with one of her two legged colleagues.

Our opening hours are as follows:Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 14:00 – 17:00; Saturday 13.00 – 16.00 The Refuge will be closed Wednesday, Sunday and on Public Holidays. Please call 922778630 for more information , The refuge is situated at Poligono De Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER the Parque Eolica where the windmills are.

too. Our vet Cesar Bertoldi will perform the operation and she will then return to Sharon Edens, her foster Mum, for recuperation. She needs scans and x-rays before the operation too, and as you can imagine all this will cost a significant amount of money! MADAT do not have the funds to cover this, so a fundraiser is being held with the aim of raising the money to save Candy. WHEN? Sunday the 9th March from 2pm WHERE ? Eurobar, Coral Mar Square, Costa de Silencio. WHAT CAN YOU DO?

The Adeje councillor also explained that the borough was one of the first in the Canary Islands to use piped gas. “We are looking at an investment in the future, something of huge interest to the tourist and domestic sectors, with a form of gas provision that is a ‘bridge’ to the arrival of natural gas with an expansion plan until 2020. “This form of gas is cheaper, space saving and has zero visual impact. It also means a reduction in the transport of potentially dangerous materials on public roads”, he added.

Oh whAT A LOVeLY wAR!!

by Colin Kirby


SInG SATIrE and black humour Oh What A lovely War, first performed in1963, shone a musical light on the dark days of World War One. On the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the so called “war to end all wars” the Swallows drama Group sold out two nights at the los Cristianos cultural centre with a spirited and moving production.

The title and many of the featured popular songs of the time refer to a wildly optimistic and blinkered view of the conflict, encouraged by incompetent generals and out of touch politicians. The cast did a great job of filling the songs with the enthusiasm and belief that existed at the start of the war.

Belgium Put the Kibosh On The Kaiser was typical of the euphoria that greeted early victories and fuelled a belief that God was on the side of the allies. In those pre rolling news days the massive casualties on all sides and the incredible blunders by military leaders only seeped through in letters from the front. The narrator guided us through the escalating carnage, his matter of fact delivery of the ever escalating death toll was a stark contrast to the cheery songs sung by the troops and those left behind. Later in the second act the songs became more bitter, like Hush Here Comes A Whizzbang, and The Bells Of Hell. Even the chirpy faith of the troops gave way to gallows humour like When This Bloody War Is Over, and Fred Karno’s Army.

There were more females than males in the drama group so they had to be versatile and become Tommies. The designers helped on that score with pantomime clown outfits rather than uniforms to underline the contrast between the almost frivolous home view of the war and the horror of life on the western front. With a small stage and no overflow or wings areas it was a testing show but the cast coped well with the constant changes. Experienced director Michael Huntington told me afterwards a bit about the challenge of staging such a multi layered show. “We started out in November, only two of our cast had any previous theatrical background and I had to get permission to perform the show from the copyright holders and get all the lyrics printed out. Learning

the tunes was tough as well, these old songs are not ones you hear on the radio, luckily we had Paul Lowe as our musical director and he has experience of shows in the UK. We practised twice a week but the dress rehearsal with an invited audience was the first time most of our cast had performed in front of people. It’s been good, everyone has pulled together and the cultural centre helped a lot. This was the first show by the Swallows but we are already thinking of putting on something else next year.” The two performances raised 1700 euros for Cancer Research Tenerife. Sadly current world news has again shown that the themes explored in Oh What A Lovely War are as relevant now as they were 100 years ago.

Anyone with children know that as much as you love your kids, they can put an end to any kind of social life! What would you give to learn of a fully qualified and experienced nanny who is great with kids? Kayleigh is relatively new to the island, so book her now to get that social calendar filling up again, before her calendar is full!

I thought my home was secure, it was after all covered in nets and I wouldn´t willingly invite anyone in who I didn’t know. But last night I got what was coming to me for being complacent and I got it good! At midnight I turned off the light and fell asleep only to be woken by what I thought were voices. The window was open, so perhaps it was just the melody of insects and other night creatures singing. Then in a nerve destroying moment it suddenly struck me, the voices emanated from a nightly get-together of repulsive monstrosities. Zing-zing-a-zzzz!” shrieked the relentless voice in the darkness. Bzzzzzzzzzz went the conversation at the side of my bed. I felt a small tickle on my arm and at the speed of light the repugnant creature was injecting my skin. I had been attacked by a mosquito Aaaahhhh! Stung! The horror of that bitter moment! I fought not to scratch the

affected area knowing it would only get worse but it was driving me crazy. By the time I turned on the light it had sucked my blood and caused my skin to itch and I found a bulging swelling on my elbow and hand. I had become a mosquito burrito and they were looking upon me as their meal ticket and having a feast. 1 - D S C 0 3 6 8 4 3-DSC03686 I swore and searched all over the ceiling and walls until I finally spotted in the corner a single female e l e g a n t l y lolling and enjoying her success. She wasn´t satisfied and it wasn´t long before I heard a light buzzing noise move swiftly near my ears, she was waiting for second helpings! It was me against the mosquito and I swear she looked me in the eye as I screamed “You sucked my blood; you will pay with your life.” I tried to splat her by slapping my hands against my body. It must

have looked ridiculous to anyone watching as if I was dancing around the bedroom jumping up and down and hitting myself. I felt powerless but I would not let my enemy escape before I could deliver the fatal blow. Frustrated I slapped my forehead and suddenly realised I had killed the mossie. The way I hear it, only pregnant female mosquitoes drink blood. I was elated, if only all the females could be killed – if there weren’t any females then they would be extinct Finally, exhausted and ready for sleep, I went to the window to close it and outside on my mossie net was a family of mosquitoes standing quietly swing their antennas. Then a voice shrieked, “You killed our bread-winner – we are here for revenge!” I was flabbergasted. I can’t believe those blood sucking scavengers got me to the point I could hear them talking. WARNING: If you see anyone looking like these vampires above – run like hell!!

hIS YEAr, I was lucky enough to be invited to join “The almond walk” which takes place annually at The Finca ecological Alma de Trevejos which lies some 3000 feet above sea level close to the village of Villaflor, Spain’s highest village.

This year the walk was a week later than usual due to the fact that the week before we had one of the largest snow falls for years in the Canary islands. The weather for the walk, even on this revised date, looked decidedly dodgy but it went ahead anyway and it stayed dry but very cold. One forgets that when you are down at the Costas, in swimsuits, at 23deg that only 40 min away by car up towards the vil-

lage of Villaflor the temperature can drop by almost 20deg. Numbers were down a bit due the date change but there was about 40 adults with children of all ages. Finca ecological Alma de Trevejo is a fabulous place for kids, they can run wild, exploring, learning, playing and generally letting off steam without upsetting anyone. Its spring time here so apart from the stunning almond blossom we also managed to see lots of newborn animals including some lovely kid goats and some tiny baby black pigs. The kids were allowed in about the pens along with the farm manager Antonio, who by the end of the day became Uncle Tony to many of the youngsters as he imparted his vast knowledge about the animals and the flora of the

area. Uncle Tony encouraged all the kids to handle all the animals, smell the flowers and taste the berries and plants that they were able too, I think he enjoyed the walk as much as the kids did. The walk its self took around an hour with plenty of stops along the way. The route took us from the farm steading along past the vast array of animals down to the piggery, where the farm has its own stock heard of black pigs along with some more exotic breeds like the Vietnamese “pot” bellied, a few of which had adorable little piglets, the kids loved seeing them ! Leaving the piggery we headed downhill amongst the vineyards and through the old terraces that in the past were cultivated, probably before the road system was brought to the area. We seen all

the diverse types of stones that are quarried in the area and that built the terraces where the agriculture was carried out. Also and most importantly to any agricultural enterprise how the water system works from underground wells to above ground storage tanks. Turning the corner we reach the Almond trees, like a pink carpet on the lunar landscape, some of these trees date back hundreds of years and the farmers collect the fallen Almonds in the month of September or October and use them for a variety of different uses. The circular route led us back to the farm house where in the “bodega” a roaring log fire was burning brightly, it was a welcome site. Tables were set for lunch, all the produce was produced on the farm. We started with a glass of wine or

orange juice, a nice plate of hot lentejas soup with crusty bread. This was followed by a fresh salad, canarian potatoes, sliced roast pork or roast chicken with “house” mojo sauces.The kids were given their own special table and menu, a nice touch. A great family orientated, as you would imagine being a Spanish Finca, day out. I am sure everyone learned a little something and maybe eat a bit much. A lot of tired kids and happy parents. If you are looking for something a little bit different visit the finca its open most days and you can wander amongst the animals and have a very reasonable priced lunch with a glass of wine. Just follow the road from San Miguel to Villaflor and yoy will see their sign off the main road about 2 miles from the village.

By The Seat Of Your Pants…


by Cliodna O’Flynn


Breege O Donoghue, in cream, animating the happy crowd

ECEnTlY I EXPlAInEd to a colleague just how the Irish are planning world domination. It’s not about rallies on the street, or stealthy assassinations of world leaders, coups or invasions.

It’s about pants. Really and truly. The Irish are not really concerned about who is sitting on the throne or seat of power, because the seat of their pants already probably belongs to Ireland, or the Irish, or at least the underwear was bought in a shop with Irish roots. And if the world is wearing

your underpants you’re halfway to global dominations. OK, maybe not. But if the people behind the opening of yesterday’s first Tenerife Primark shop get to run the next coup it will be fun and games all the way and a roaring success with the local public. And I bet loads of you didn’t’ know Primark was Irish. We like to just make ourselves comfortable without too much of a fuss. World domination is just an aside. Santa Cruz mayor José Manuel Bermúdez said he had never ever been to an inauguration like it – and he even repeated it in a whisper to an aide after the official

Waiting to shop

speeches, so we know he really meant it. Some of the credit, lots of it, goes to the people who run the huge and expanding chain of shops – now 39 in Spain, 269 worldwide, with over 50,000 employees. But yesterday the star of the show was Breege O’Donoghue. Breege has been working with Penneys/Primark for over thirty years, and still operates out of the Dublin headquarters. And rather than being a spring chicken she’s more of a mother hen, heralding all of her Primark chicks around, making sure old hands meet new, that all of the new team were well versed in the Primark philosophy,

showing off her own perfectly appropriate three piece Primark trouser suit –“only �39”, dancing to the Carnaval sounds with vigour and energy that most of us could only envy, and then hopping up on stage to make the word-perfect opening address in Spanish, much to the delight of the hundreds attending the inauguration inside the shop as well as the Mayor who was infected by her enthusiasms and the delight of the crowds inside and outside that at last we have Primark in Tenerife. Of course we’re never happy. English Time, almost by unspoken agreement with colleagues from

other English language publications, we’re already laying down the ground work for Primark II in Tenerife, in the South if you please. We corralled whatever member of management we could find and gently bombarded them with 1,000+ reasons why the next shop has to be here in the South. Hopefully we got through. Certainly they were amazed to hear about the bus loads of shoppers who are booked to make the trip. Either way, we have our first Primark, and so the Irish campaign to rule the world through its underwear continues…

DOG TRAINING COURSE ENTERS PRACTICAL PHASE The course is part of the Adeje: Clean and Healthy campaign

Inauguration of first Primark shop in Tenerife


Carnaval revellers who won a voucher at the opening

hE AdEJE Youth Centre is currently running the first dog training course offered by the council, and it lasts until may 8th. The course leader is professional trainer Juan Carlos Gaspar Abreu. The initiative comes under the boroughwide Adeje Clean and healthy campaign and is now entering the practical phase where participants, human

and canine, will begin to demonstrate what they have learnt in the workshops. According to the councillor with responsibility for the campaign, Esther Rivero Vargas, “the main objective is that citizens take the care and education of their pets seriously. At the practical classes we will now see how the lessons learnt during the theoretical phase can be put into practise in the areas of behaviour and obedience”. This practical part of the course will concentrate on the civil training – in other words

how the dog behaves in public, how it walks, does it listen to the owner, wait when told to, etc.. At the same time participants will be shown the right way to address the behavioural problems of each dog and how to react as owners. The trainer has carried out an assessment of each dog and owner to get to this part of the course and will give individual tips on correcting any particular problems. Students will also receive lessons in sport training adapted for each dog and owner as well as different habits and behavioural patterns of dogs.

PAIn’S AlTAmIrA cave paintings reopened to a lucky handful of visitors lsat Thursday. With its 14,000-yearold red bison, the famous caves gave them a glimpse of some of the world’s most spectacular prehistoric art. Renowned for vivid paintings of beasts and animal-headed humans, the highlight of the cave is a set of 14,000-year-old paintings of red and yellow bison plus horses, deer, humans with the heads of animals and mysterious symbols. Experts say the cave was inhabited approximately 35,000 to 13,000 years ago. The Altamira cave closed in 2002 because scientists said the breath from crowds of

visitors was damaging the prehistoric paint, last week it reopened for five members of the public, chosen by lot from visitors to a nearby museum that houses replicas of the paintings at Santillana del Mar, in the Cantabria region. The five crept in wearing white masks and overalls and closed the door behind them as they headed underground to see the aeonold masterpieces, on a visit lasting just 37 minutes. One of the five, law student Carolina Pardo said: “There is a much stronger feel to the original cave compared to the replicas, although the paintings are very similar.” Another of the visitors, Andrea Vicente, said she was “very moved” by the experience.

“It gives you goose bumps,” she said. Experts arranged the tour as an experiment to assess the impact on the paintings from readmitting the public after 12 years of studies. The culture ministry said scientists would monitor the temperature of the air and rocks, humidity, carbon dioxide and any risk of contamination by micro-organisms during the visit. UNESCO listed the paintings as a World Heritage Site in 1985, as “masterpieces of creative genius and as humanity’s earliest accomplished art, exceptional testimonies to a cultural tradition and... outstanding illustrations of a significant stage in human history,” UNESCO says in its listing. The cave, whose walls are covered with

colorful paintings over more than 270 metres was discovered in 1868 in northern Spain. It has been dubbed the “Sistine chapel of Paleolithic art.” In January, the foundation which manages the cave said it could reopen but only to groups of five people a week, and for just minutes at a time. Overall 192 visitors will be allowed in by August, when experts will reassess the impact of the visits on the paintings. Junior culture minister Josa Maria Lassalle said: “The aim is to analyse the impact of human presence on the conservation of the cave... to determine if continued access to the cave is possible or not.”

MAINLAND NEWS IN BRIEF Spain has banned its border guards from firing rubber bullets to stop migrants crossing the fence into its North African territories. At least 14 migrants drowned in Moroccan waters on February 6 while trying to swim to the Spanish territory of Ceuta, raising an outcry at the civil guards who police Spain’s side of the border. The Spanish interior ministry said civil guards fired rubber bullets, but denied this action contributed to the drownings. An interior ministry spokesman said: “The Civil Guard has prohibited its agents from using rubber bullets to ward off attempts by immigrants to cross the borders of Ceuta and Melilla.” It was the latest in a series of mass attempts by African migrants to cross the triple barbedwire border fence in the hope of reaching Europe. SPAIn and Italy are the top two European countries for finding a bargain when buying a second-hand car. At present, the average price for a used car – bearing in mind the vast difference between a 12-year-old Ford Fiesta and a one-year-old Mercedes or BMW – is 12,600 euros. Whilst the old adage claims that the second one drives a brand-new car off the forecourt, it has already lost thousands, in Spain and Italy the price of a nearly-new car is very close to that of a straight-from-the-factory model. Currently, the most expensive second-hand cars are found on Spain’s islands – the Balearics and the Canaries – possibly due to the extra cost of shipping from the mainland, whilst the central Spanish regions of Extremadura and Castilla-La Mancha have the cheapest used vehicles. The average prices on the islands and in central Spain are 14,000 and 10,000 euros respectively. Prices went up the most in the last year in the Balearics, followed by Valencia, Andalucía and Castilla y León, with Extremadura, the Basque Country and Madrid in the middle. The greatest price falls were seen in the Canaries, Castilla-La Mancha, Navarra, Murcia and Asturias. Spain has suggested that Morocco legalize immediate deportations on the borders of Ceuta and Melilla, as part of a plan to control immigration in these autonomous cities. The proposal was made in France by the Minister of Interior, Jorge Fernandez to his Moroccan counterpart Mohamed Hassad, in reference to the drama recorded last February 6th in Ceuta, where 15 migrants died. The immediate deportation last February 6th of 23 immigrants that arrived at the coastline of Ceuta, one of two Spanish autonomous cities in Africa on the border with Morocco, brought criticism from the opposition and organizations defending human rights. The death of 15 immigrants and the immediate deportation of another 23 led to demands for the resignation of Minister Fernández by the opposition, as well as a commission of inquiry and delivery of the filmings made on site. Another initiative is to strenghten the project of the International Organization Migration for the voluntary return of irregular migrants from Morocco. A total of 75 British and three Americans have been arrested by Spanish police in an international operation targeting so-called “boiler-rooms,” or networks of businesses with no real commercial activities but responsible for frauds that rake in millions. The arrests succeeded in dismantling 15 of these boiler-rooms, between Barcelona in the northeast and Malaga in the south, which conned people into investing their savings in financial schemes that sounded attractive but were really fakes. The investigations, coordinated by Spanish and London police, have taken two years with the collaboration of the British NCA, the U.S. Secret Service and the police of Tampa, Florida. Added to the 78 arrests in Spain were another 30 in such countries as Britain, Serbia and the United States, the sources said. Telefonica SA (TEF), the Spanish phone company cutting costs to cope with falling revenue, reported fourth-quarter earnings declined 8.7 percent as sales from Spain to Brazil continued to plunge. Telefonica is increasing promotions in Europe as it can no longer rely on growth in Latin America, where sales fell 6.7 percent and earnings dropped 20 percent, partly because of currency fluctuations. While earnings in Europe climbed 11 percent, revenue slid 10 percent to 6.7 billion euros. “Telefonica has managed to slightly improve the business in Europe,” Andres Bolumburu, an analyst at Banco de Sabadell SA in Madrid, said. “However, it still needs to turn around the business in order to achieve further growth.” Telefonica has announced a 1.5 billion-euro cost-saving program and a reorganization that gives Chief Operating Officer Jose Maria Alvarez-Pallete more executive responsibilities by overseeing operations across Europe and Latin America.

‘Prostitution For Beginners’ Angers Feminists


T A COST OF 45 euros (£37) a person, a fourhour intensive course for aspiring sex workers was held last month by the Asociación de Profesionales del Sexo, a group of eight sex workers who lobby for better rights for those in the industry. The “intro to prostitution” course has angered some of Spain’s most prominent feminists All professionals need some training, explained course organiser Conxa Borrell: “This isn’t an easy profession. There is no other line of work in which you share such intimacy with someone. Media often portrays us as a piece of meat with eyes and three holes. It’s absolutely false.” The group’s efforts to normalise the profession have raised eyebrows before, such as last year’s sold-out “sex for women

as taught by prostitutes” workshop. Four hours was too little time, said Borrell, to cover a list of topics such as dealing with the stigma of prostitution, sex tricks, filing tax returns and marketing. A second day will be held this month because of high demand: “Nobody else can teach these things, not psychologists, anthropologists or political scientists – only prostitutes. We’re at an impasse where people are unemployed, and they still have to pay their mortgages and feed their children. This is a line of work that many women feel they can do.” In 2007, after her husband’s business went under, Borrell heard a news story mention some sex workers in Spain were making �200 a day, and decided to try it out: “I knew absolutely nothing about it, I didn’t know where to take my clients, I had no idea where to meet them. I didn’t know how much to charge them.” Lidia Falcón, founder of the Partido

Feminista de España said: “We want to know if the association holding the course is receiving any public funds. And we want to know if our politicians agree that prostitution should be promoted as an alternative to unemployment.” Prostitution in Spain exists in a sort of legal limbo; while not illegal, it is not regulated in any way. Authorities in Barcelona have introduced fines for clients and sex workers working on the street, and Madrid is planning to do the same. Falcón has spent years fighting to have prostitution made illegal in Spain. “Now the last straw is that a group is giving courses to women to become prostitutes. It’s a false, repugnant discussion about liberty, as if being a prostitute is something you can choose to do because you like it. They say they’re helping women, but they’re just helping them to be exploited and humiliated.”


AST WEEK SAW the mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, a four-day conference highlighting what the tech industry has loosely termed “the Internet of things.” Among the technology showcased were Internet-connected toothbrushes from Procter and Gamble’s Oral-B that tell your mirror to remind you to floss and basketball jerseys that can detect impending heart failure and call the ambulance for you. Fitness devices from Sony and Samsung connect with your smartphones to provide digital records of your daily lives. French startup Cityzen Sciences has embedded fabric with heart-rate and other sensors to track your physical activities.

Some of this tech is already available or promised by the end of the year, but there are security and privacy concerns — health insurance companies would love access to your fitness data to set premiums. Some customers might worry about security, given recent breaches compromising credit and debit card numbers, determined hackers seem to constantly find loopholes. Imagine someone spying on you remotely through security cameras in your home or tricking your home security system into believing your car is approaching, so it opens your garage door automatically. AT&T emphasizes that it uses encryption and other safeguards for its connected services, which include security monitoring and energy-efficiency controls in

homes. Internet-connected products represent a growth opportunity for wireless carriers, as the smartphone business slows down in developed markets because most people already have service. Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation said: “Building everything is too much for a single company, yet they want all this stuff to work together.” Jonathan Zittrain, a law professor at Harvard University, said: “Information seems harmless and trivial at the moment, but can be recorded forever . and can be combined with other data, I don’t think we’ve come to terms with that yet.”

Spain Number 2 For Garlic


Old YOur BrEATh! With almost 65.000 tons distributed on international market per year, Spain is the second most important garlic exporter worldwide.


A TOmATInA is of course Spain’s famous tomato-battling festival, but have you ever heard of the “Battle of the Oranges” that takes place in the northern Italian city of Ivrea?

Italy’s largest food fight began on Monday, as the event’s participants dressed in medieval costumes pelted 500 tonnes of oranges at each other to commemorate the 12th century rebellion of the city’s common men against their oppressors.

Participants were split into two groups of nobility and commoners, after which ensued an extremely messy and sticky fight, one from which even the spectators weren’t safe. Rules clearly state that anyone wearing the Phrygian Cap should be exempt from orange attacks, as it ‘ signifies that you are part of the revolutionaries.’ However, it is not uncommon for those with the caps and even spectators to get caught in the middle and cop a few juicy blows, the wasp problems must be horrendous!! A participant named Giulia Baldini said: “It’s a fun event, I would have preferred to be

in the audience - I’m trying to stay out of the way of the oranges but someone’s already got me a few times unfortunately.” Another local named Roberto Accio added: “This is certainly the most important event in Ivrea. It’s definitely more important than Christmas or Easter. It’s very important. There is an energy among the people that you can’t even describe.” The Battle of the Oranges is a three-day festival that ended on Wednesday.

Production datas reveal 140.000 tons as for volumes. An amount that puts Spain in first place among the EU countries that produce garlic, with a 50% quota of the whole Community production. Spanish production has focused mainly in the areas around the Las Pedroñeras and Cuenca towns, in the Castilla-La Mancha communities, as we l l

a s in the towns of Montalban and Santaella in the province of Cordova, places where garlic represents not only the main source of income, but but it is also an integral part of the local culture.

19 Ancient Beasts Roam The wilderness Once More


n WOOdlAndS near the border of Spain and Portugal, wild horses are roaming free not saddled or shoed. An ancient sight. Centuries old. As farming has declined in Spain, much of the countryside is deserted, and the wild things are coming back: wolves, vultures and rare herbivores, to name a few. As reported in the Tenerife Weekly, dozens of Spanish “Retuerta” horses have been released over the past two years into the 500-hectare (1,235-acre) Campanarios de Azaba Reserve. Carlos Sanchez, director of the conservation group running the site said: “It’s a wonderful horse that has been around since time immemorial. We are re-

covering the most primitive breeds to try to help manage an ecosystem which has been abandoned due to the disappearance of humans. We don’t feed them. We just watch them and monitor how they are doing in their groups, which are the dominant horses and which of the mares are pregnant.” In existence there are only about 150 Retuertas, one of the oldest horse breeds in Europe. They were brought from the Donana National Park in southern Spain to create a second breeding site in Campanarios, where they now number about 50, and share the reserve with rare vultures and free-roaming cows, pioneers of what conservationists call “rewilding”, with wolves, vultures and even the endangered Iberian lynx recovering in numbers. Frans Schepers, managing director of Re-


The body of world-renowned flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia arrived in the Spanish capital for a memorial ceremony before his wake and burial in his native southern town of Algeciras.

People were able to file past the casket for several hours at Madrid’s National Auditorium music centre. Afterward, his body was taken to Algeciras for a public wake overnight and burial. One of the world’s greatest guitarists, de Lucia is credited with modernizing flamenco by introducing influences from other musical forms such as jazz, bossa nova, classical and salsa.

wise all the animals would be wiped out.” Elsewhere, conservationists this month released a herd of wild oxen to graze in a reserve near the northern Spanish city of Burgos, in the coming months they plan to add endangered European bison and other breeds of wild horse to the reserve. Fernando Moran, a bison specialist says: “In the archaeological site lie the bones of the ancestors of todays’ species. These are their evolutionary descendants. It is about nature conservation, but also tourism, development and land management, Spain is in general a fair bit more wild than the rest of Europe. Lots of hectares are being left empty, which for wild animals are obviously perfect.”

Spain’s Crash Landlords

wilding Europe, an initiative for development through “wild nature,” says: “For the first time in history, Europe is facing a situation where there is no grazing anymore, there has been a lot of land abandonment in Spain over the past few decades, Spain has shown a very interesting wildlife comeback.” The Campanarios reserve, currently inhabited just by the animals and a handful of staff, aims to draw groups of wildlife spotters and boost the local economy. Jon Teixeira, 27, works in the reserve planting trees, releasing rabbits and leaving dead chickens for vultures to feed on: “I am glad there is a reserve here -- that way we’ll have jobs in the area, where there’s a lot of unemployment and it’s a good job there’s a place where you can’t hunt, other-


n mAdrId you can rent a repossessed home from an unscrupulous squatter – or even ‘buy’ one for 1,000 euro.

A black market for cheap housing in which groups illegally break into, and then let, repossessed properties is thriving among the hundreds of thousands of empty homes across Madrid. Vicente Pérez, from a residents group, the Federación Regional de Asociaciones de Vecinos de Madrid says almost all the cases involving the properties, most of which now belong to Spanish banks, are identical: “Somebody goes and kicks in the door. Once he’s in, the others come – and they sell the place.” Exact figures on how many people are taking part in such arrangements were hard to come by, he said:

“People are scared and they don’t want to talk. A few shameless people are taking advantage of the needs of the most poor to make a business out of it,” While prices vary greatly, it generally costs from 1,000 euros (£830) to 2,000 to “buy” a repossessed property. Those who cannot afford the fee can instead choose to rent for a few hundred euros a month. The price often includes electricity, gas and water, and sometimes even heating. The homes are guaranteed until a judicial process issues an eviction order. That process could take up to two years. The “landlords” of this black market range from people just looking to make some extra money to groups with criminal connections said Pérez:

“Some of them are mafia, I wouldn’t call them the Italian mafia, but they are highly organised groups.” Just 10 years ago Spain was in the throes of a construction boom, with developers building hundreds of thousands of homes a year. The bubble burst in 2007, leaving its relics scattered across the country, including more than 300,000 empty homes in Madrid. Neighbourhood associations in Madrid have urged the owners of these empty properties to take responsibility. “If you own a home that’s sitting empty, what’s stopping you from renting it?” asked Pérez. The latest census data indicate a total of 3.4m houses sitting empty in Spain alongside another nearly half a million properties that were abandoned part way through construction.

Cats May hold Obesity Key

CAN YOU ChANge A TRILLION? Man tries to pay Valentine’s day restaurant bill with ‘trillion dollar’ note


OTOrIOuSlY lAzY, the humble house cat may actually be able to help scientists figure out how to c o n trol o besity in humans, but it’s their fur colouring not their lethargy that may hold the key to

ending obesity.

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco are looking to calico cats, known for their orange and black patchwork fur, to better understand “gene silencing”, the ability of a cell to

prevent t h e expression of a certain g e n e . Scientists hope the

research may reveal how traits in humans -- like obesity -- may be turned on and off the same way colour traits are controlled in the fluctuating pattern of a calico’s coat. Lead study author Elizabeth Smith explained in a presentation earlier this month at the annual Biophysical Society Meeting in San Francisco, that calico cats, which are nearly always female, have an orange fur colour gene on one X chromosome and a black fur color gene on the other

X chromosome. In a genetic anomaly, the chromosomes are turned on and off at random, creating the splotchy fur pattern. Unlocking the mystery of the calico’s chromosomes could lead to advances in understanding how human traits are passed on and expressed, ultimately allowing us to exert control over them. Smith said in a press release: “Uncovering how only one X chromosome is inactivated will help explain the whole process of epigenetic

control, meaning the way changes in gene activity can be inherited without changing the DNA code, it can help answer other questions such as if and how traits like obesity can be passed down through generations.” Body fat distribution traits are associated with the X chromosome, according to Discovery News, as are several other disorders and diseases, including intersex conditions, breast cancer and hemophilia.


ichael Williams, from S u m t e r, South Carolina, offered to pay his restaurant bill with the high value currency after his debit card was rejected on February 14th. But unsurprisingly the staff at the Applebee’s

outlet did not think the note was legitimate and promptly rang police. The 53-year-old was arrested at the restaurant but not in relation to the bill. The authorities decided to ignore his alleged claims of being a trillionaire and instead picked him up for a pending contempt of a magistrate’s court charge.



recent discovery has doubled the number of planets known to humanity in just one day.

Nasa’s planet-hunting Kepler telescope has discovered more than 700 new worlds outside the solar system which, scientists say could push the number of planets discovered in the galaxy to about 1,700. As recently as 20 years ago, astronomers had not found any planets circling stars other than the ones revolving around the sun. Astronomers used a new technique to come up with the largest single announcement of a batch of exoplanets -

what planets outside our solar system are called. All the new planets are in systems like ours where multiple planets circle a star. The 715 planets were nearly all similar in size to Earth and four orbit their stars in “habitable zones” where conditions would support liquid water which is crucial for life to exist. Nasa planetary scientist Jack Lissauer said: “We almost doubled just today the number of planets known to humanity,” Nasa scientist Douglas Hudgins called the discovery a major step towards Kepler’s ultimate goal: “finding Earth 2.0”.

Latest Model Fad Diet: Air And Light


uKrAInIAn nutjo... sorry,, model who considers herself to be a real-life Barbie doll, says she eventually hopes to live without eating or drinking at all and will survive as a “breatharian”.

Valeria Lukyanova, whose dolllike features and ultra-thin waist have stirred controversy in the past, has apparently made it her goal to survive “on air and light alone.” Lukyanova, who believes in reincarnation and claims to have been in contact with transdimensional beings, has said she uses her appearance to promote her “spir-

itual ideas.” Lukyanova said: “In recent weeks I have not been h u n g r y at all, I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and

light alone.” The New Age practice is known as Breatharianism, in which followers neither neither eat nor drink, believing they can exist solely on “cosmic micro-food.” Last year, a 65-year-old Seattle woman who went 47 days living only on water and tea, cited Breatharian yogis as her inspiration. Naveena Shine’s goal was to maintain the extreme fast for 100 days, but she called it off after receiving what she called “a message from the universe that it is time to stop.” Commenting on Shine’s case, Dr. Ronald Hoffm a n , medical dir e c to r o f

the Hoffman Center and host of a weekly health talk podcast, said that it is “delusional to think that you can escape the laws of biology.” At least one person has starved to death trying to adhere to a Breatharian regimen. I once went a day without eating anything but an Aero and Pepsi Light, does that count?

Orld’S OldEST ChEESE Found On 3,800-Year-Old mummies Buried In China The world’s oldest “cheese” may have been discovered on the bodies of mummies buried in China’s Taklamakan Desert. The mummies, which are each about 3,800 years old, were buried with hunks of the dairy treat, presumably a tasty snack for the buried to enjoy in the afterlife, a bit like giving kids Dairylea to take to school, but it’s a longer trip and they’re, you know… dead. In the Journal of Archaeological Science, the authors write: “Despite being extraordinary simple, it possessed the necessary qualities for supporting the economic expansion of ruminant animal herding into Eastern Eurasia.” cheese making dates as far back as the sixth millennium B.C., but samples of the ancient cheese itself have been elusive. Most evidence relied on residual fats found in pottery shards, but many of these traces had degraded o v e r t i m e or received only limited analys i s . This d i s c ove r y m a d e t h e evidence for ancient cheese circumstantial. the newly discovered cheese was unearthed during excavations of the Xiaohe Cemetery, also known as Ordek’s necropolis, between 2002 and 2004. The ancient necropolis was first discovered in a sand dune located by a dried-up riverbed in 1934. It harbors hundreds of mummies buried in large, wooden coffins that resembled upside-down boats, which were then covered with cowhide that sealed the coffins from the air. The dry air and salty soil had left many mummies and their accessories extraordinarily well preserved. A chemical analysis revealed that the ancient dairy product didn’t require an enzyme, known as rennet, which is found in the guts of ruminants and is used to make hard cheeses such as cheddar. Instead, makers likely fermented this cheese using microbes such as Lactobacillus and Saccharomycetaceae yeasts, which are commonly used to make the still-popular fermented dairy beverage known as kefir. The ancient cheese had less salt content than typical brined cheeses, which preserve better. The fermented treat may have provided probiotic benefits to the guts of these ancient people, and may even explain why herding became such a dominant way of life. “The evidence of kefir dairy that occurred already at the Early Bronze Age helps [us] to understand why milking was spreading over Eastern Eurasia despite the lactose intolerance of the local population,” the authors write in the paper.

John Basile now faces misdemeanour charges, Mr Basile owns Big Run Wolf Ranch, a run-down animal rescue centre where he keeps wolves, a bear and the tiger. Witnesses say people started screaming “Is that a tiger?” in disbelief after Mr Basile and his feline companion walked in. Terry Lemming, Lockport police chief,

said: “My concern really was for the people that frequent the downtown area. This was at 7.30 at night on a Sunday in an area that has a lot of people walking around.” It is not the first time a big cat has visited the bar - a woman was bitten by a different tiger at the same drinking spot last December!!!

Hyndburn borough councillor Peter Britcliffe said he was concerned the incident could be linked to the social network craze the neknominate drinking game: “This is a shocking thing to happen and if this is some sort of prank, it is stupid. It would humiliate the person who had been hit, but it is also quite a dangerous thing to do.” The man believed to have filmed the attack is described as being around the same age, 5ft 8in tall, wearing a dark coat and dark grey trousers and boots.


T’S OnE OF my wife’s fantasies (stop - not that kind of fantasy) to slap somebody... probably me, across the face with a giant fish from the supermarket, but maybe such thoughts should remain fantasies!

Police have launched an appeal after a supermarket worker was left “shaken up and embarrassed” when she was slapped in the face with a fish by a customer. Officers suspect that the attack, which is believed to have been filmed on a mobile phone, may have been carried out as a dare. Police want to speak to a woman in connection with the Asda fish slap. The woman is described as being Irish and aged between 15 and 18 with blonde, shoulder-length untidy hair. She was wearing dark jeans and a blue coat with white cuffs, white the front a n d a red collar with ‘I love PB’ on the left breast pocket. The 52-yearold victim was working behind the

einstein A go-go


n mArCh 14Th, 1879, Albert Einstein was born, the son of a Jewish electrical engineer in ulm, Germany. Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity drastically altered man’s view of the universe, and his work in particle and energy theory helped make possible quantum mechanics and, ultimately, the atomic bomb.

Einstein studied physics and mathematics at the Federal Polytechnic Academy in Zurich, Switzerland and in 1905 was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. That year, which historians of Einstein’s career call the annus mirabilis--the “miracle year”--he published five theoretical papers that were to have a profound effect on the development of modern physics. In “On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light,” Einstein theorized that light is made up of individual quanta (photons) that demonstrate particle-like properties while collectively behaving like a wave. The hypoth-

esis was an important step in the development of quantum theory. This work would later earn him the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics. In the second paper, he devised a new method of counting and determining the size of the atoms and molecules in a given space, and in the third he offered a mathematical explanation for the constant erratic movement of particles suspended in a fluid. These two papers provided indisputable evidence of the existence of atoms, which at the time was still disputed by a few scientists. Einstein’s fourth groundbreaking scientific work of 1905 addressed what he termed his special theory of relativity. In special relativity, time and space are not absolute, but relative to the motion of the observer. Thus, two observers traveling at great speeds in regard to each other would not necessarily

observe simultaneous events in time at the same moment, nor necessarily agree in their measurements of space. In Einstein’s theory, the speed of light, which is the limiting speed of any body having mass, is constant in all frames of reference. In the fifth paper that year, an exploration of the mathematics of special relativity, Einstein announced that mass and energy were equival e n t a n d could be calculated with an equat i o n , E=mc2. He became an overnight celebrity and later, other predictions of general relativity,

such as a shift in the orbit of the planet Mercury and the probable existence of black holes, were confirmed by scientists. As a world-renowned public figure, he became increasingly political, taking up the cause of Zionism and speaking out against militarism and rearmament. In his native Germany, this made him an unpopular figure, and after Nazi leader Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933 Einstein renounced his German citizenship and left the country. He later settled in the United States, where he accepted a post at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1939, despite his lifelong pacifist beliefs, he agreed to write to President Franklin D. Roosevelt on behalf of a group of scientists who were concerned with

American inaction in the field of atomic-weapons research. Like the other scientists, he feared sole German possession of such a weapon. He played no role, however, in the subsequent Manhattan Project and later deplored the use of atomic bombs against Japan. After the war, he called for the establishment of a world government that would control nuclear technology and prevent future armed conflict. In 1950, he published his unified field theory, which was quietly criticized as a failure. A unified explanation of gravitation, subatomic phenomena, and electromagnetism remains elusive today. Albert Einstein, one of the most creative minds in human history, died in Princeton in 1955

Spotlight on Tenerife’s “Enchanted Forest”


t Cruz del Carmen is the “tropical forest in the clouds”, in the north of the island, straight up the TF1,then onto the TF2 toward La Laguna, past “ Al Campo” to join TF5, off at TF13 and finally TF12 to our target, from the south it’s about an hour’s leisurely drive.

On the day we went it was a typical sunny Tenerife day for most of the journey but as we neared the forest we noticed the clouds draping over the distant peaks like a shroud of dry ice. The final few kilometres as the roads narrowed and got steeper, we drove into the clouds and suddenly we were in a fairytale world, everything glistened due to the condensing cloud cover which looked like an eerie mist. The world had turned every shade of green as the canopies of the moss covered

trees lining the road, entwined above our heads, from a sunny day to a misty twilight world in minutes. We stopped and left the car in the ample parking area,(there’s an information centre, restaurant, ranger’s office and a viewing point-not much to see when we were there due to cloud but the view must be incredible). The first thing we noticed was the cold, take a jumper and a jacket!! Everything was dripping wet as we made our way to the start of the hiking trails. There are 3 different types of trail, all entitled the “path of the senses” , number one is a wooden path that’s suitable for everyone including wheelchairs, each trail has “sensory points” along the way, instructing you to close your eyes,feel textures,smell etc., great fun no matter how old you are!! The trails really have to be seen to be believed, they really do look like an enchanted forest movie set-we half ex-

pected to glimpse a wood nymph running for cover or a rabbit in a waistcoat looking at his pocket watch and saying “I’m late!I’m late!” The plantlife was stunning, the forests are identical to the ones that existed in the Tertiary period, unfortunately all the animal life must’ve been sleeping as although we were informed by multiple information boards that the forest was teeming with life, we saw none!! As well as the easy trail, there are 2 more that require an amount of exertion and hiking shoes,which take an average of 45 or 90 minutes respectively and after descending by foot about 200 feet, there’s a viewpoint looking over the Anaga mountains which words can’t describe, but what goes down must come up and the climb back will soon make you forget the cold!! I’m so glad that we went to this beautiful part of the island, I just can’t believe it took me so long to discover it!

OrE ThAn 50,000 people have signed an online petition filed by Shazad Iqbal of Bradford who describes Katy Perry’s video for her latest single ‘dark horse’ as ‘highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy’. The video has been slammed by muslims who have called for it to be banned from YouTube.

Particular offence has been taken at a scene that sees Katy zapping a man wearing a necklace with the word ‘Allah’ written in Arabic The petition says:

“At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word ‘Allah’, which is the arabic word for God. Such goes to show, that blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of God) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames.” Most of the support for the petition comes from Britain but it has also been signed by supporters from Muslim-majority countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Qatar. The video for ‘Dark Horse’ - the third single from Katy’s new album ‘Prism’ - has already scored 33 million views on YouTube.

sHArPLes in session By John sharples



t is carnival time in Tenerife and the place will be going potty until the end of the week. As I drove to work tonight I saw six young lads in full drag waiting for a bus. minnie mouse was walk-

ing across the road and I felt as though I was in an episode of the twilight zone.

I love the Spanish parties. They know how to party. A British fiesta or carnival is usually over in an afternoon and opened by the local vicar. Here in Tenerife, the party


goes on for over two weeks and is known as the second largest carnival in the world. I am looking forward to marching in the parade with my friends and then going for a few drinks in an outrageous outfit which I am still putting the finishing touches to. Photos next week!




y friend dave Owen has been busy penning

his thoughts on facebook under the name of mr. Grumpy.

here are some of his thoughts from the last few days.

On the current crisis in Crimea he says, “Russia has said that suspending preparations for the G8 meeting in Sochi damages the international community but it seems invading another country is ok?” A comment on Scottish Independence, “Film star Sean Connery is urging fellow Scots to vote for independence when a referendum is held in September. What part of Scotland do you live in Sean oh yes the Bahamas and Marbella.” On the law being an ass, “A motorist who threw a cigarette end out of her car window has been ordered to pay more than £1,000 after she refused to pay a £75 on-the-spot fine. So what’s the next sentence if she refuses to pay? Life in jail?” Thank you Mr. Grumpy, you certainly manage to keep me entertained and I love sharing your comments.

hErE ArE BAnAnA plantations all over the Canary Islands. most of the bananas that people eat in the uK come from Tenerife and its neighbours. Tourists quite often stop to take photos of the unusual plant but not many people realize how special the fruit of the banana, which is officially a berry, is. When you have read these interesting facts, you might just feel a little differently about this humble yellow delicacy. 1. Bananas contain sucrose, fructose and glucose which are all natural sugars and this is all mixed together with lots of fibre. Bananas give a massive instant, prolonged energy boost. They can provide enough energy for a heavy 90-minute workout 2. Depression Cure - According to a recent survey of people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. The fruit contains tryptophan, which the body converts into serotonin which is known to make us relax and make us feel happier. 3. PMT Relief - The vitamin B6 that a banana contains regulates blood glucose levels, which affect your mood. 4. Anemia relief – They are high in Iron and can stimulate production of hemoglobin in the blood. 5. Lowers Blood Pressure – The Banana is bursting with potassium but it is low salt, which makes it perfect to tackle blood pressure. The US authorities have given permission to the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and strokes. 6. Helps Brain Power - 200 students at

a Middlesex school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas for breakfast and lunch. Research shows that the potassium-rich fruit assists learning by making pupils more alert. 7. Constipation Relief - Having bananas in your diet will help restore normal bowel action without having to use laxatives. 8. Hangover Cure – A fast hangover cure is to make a banana milkshake with a little honey added. The banana calms your stomach. With the help of the honey, low blood sugar levels will build up rapidly and the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system. 9. Heartburn Cure - Bananas are a natural antacid so if you suffer from heartburn, eat a banana for quick relief. 10. Morning Sickness Relief – Eat a banana between meals to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness. 11. Mosquito Bite Relief – Rub the infected area with the inside of a banana skin. It can be very successful at reducing swelling and irritation. 12. Ulcer Relief - Bananas are the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It neutralizes acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach. It seems that a banana really is a natural remedy. Maybe the saying should be “A banana a day keeps the doctor away”. Compared to an apple, it has 4 TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, 3 TIMES the phosphorus, 5 times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium.

Barbie Born!


n mArCh 9Th in 1959, the first ever Barbie doll went on display at the American Toy Fair in new York City. The woman behind Barbie, the first massproduced toy doll in the United States with adult features. Was Ruth Handler, who cofounded Mattel, Inc. with her husband in 1945. After seeing her young daughter ignore her baby dolls to play make-believe with paper dolls of adult women, Handler realized there was an important niche in the market for a toy that allowed little girls to imagine the future. Barbie’s appearance, eleven inches tall, with a waterfall of blond hair, was modeled on a

doll named Lilli, based on a German comic strip character. Originally marketed as a racy gag gift to adult men in tobacco shops, the Lilli doll later became extremely popular with children. Mattel bought the rights to Lilli and made its own version, which Handler named after her daughter, Barbara. With its sponsorship of the “Mickey Mouse Club” TV program in 1955, Mattel became the first toy company to broadcast commercials to children. They used this medium to promote their new toy, and by 1961, the enormous consumer demand for the doll led Mattel to release a boyfriend for Barbie. Handler named him Ken, after her son. Barbie’s best friend, Midge, came out in 1963; her little

sister, Skipper, debuted the following year. Over the years, Barbie generated huge sales-and a lot of controversy. On the positive side, many women saw Barbie as providing an alternative to traditional 1950s gender roles. She has had a series of different jobs, from airline stewardess, doctor, pilot and astronaut to Olympic athlete and even U.S. presidential candidate. Others thought Barbie’s neverending supply of designer outfits, cars and “Dream Houses” encouraged kids to be materialistic. It was Barbie’s appearance that caused the most controversy, however. Her tiny waist and enormous breasts--it was estimated that if she were a real woman, her measurements would be 36-18-38--led

many to claim that Barbie provided little girls with an unrealistic and harmful example and fostered negative body image. Despite the criticism, sales of Barbie-related merchandise continued to soar, topping 1 billion dollars annually by 1993. Since 1959, more than 800 million dolls in the Barbie family have been sold around the world and Barbie is now a bona fide global icon. Ironically when Pixar asked Mattel if they could use the toy superstar in their little movie “Toy Story”, the company declined, of course after the film became a smash hit worldwide and generated its own massively popular toy range....Barbie appeared in Toy Story 2.

HoMe AnD gArDening


By Linda Barratt

hErE’S nOThInG like stepping out of bed onto a soft thick rug, curling your toes into it to greet the day. To know you’ve made it yourself can only be a double

bonus. I’m pretty sure that one of the following techniques will fit your style and abilities :BrAIdInG

The technique used is very very simple. All you need to do is use the basic threeband braiding. Your rug can be made from several strands of yarn or anything rope like, but i prefer braided rugs using strips of fabric. It’s good to use your own imagination here. Cut discarded clothing, coats, towels, blankets etc into long strips ready for use. Then all you have to do is start you’re braiding by sewing three ends together, this will be your center point if doing a circular rug. As the braid is being made it is also sewn to the braid next to it, this is what keeps the rug together so be sure to use a strong thread. Most braided rugs are either circular or oval, but it is possible to make a square or rectangle just by adjusting the spiral, or by braiding back and forth instead of around and around. KnITTInG Of course knitting will produce a thinner fabric

Making Rugs for your rug but it is an ideal technique for say a bathroom where you need to wash your rug regular. Try using several strands together for a chunkier look. If the thought of holding, and trying to balance on your knee, the heavy knitted piece is a bit daunting for you, especially as it grows in size; then you could try making it in squares or strips. Simply sew them together with the same wool you are using or use a crochet hook to pull the yarn through up and over to join. CrOChET

A rug can be crocheted using a thick yarn or even fabric strips and a very large hook. By crocheting you can create many different shapes, most certainly a larger rectangle or square. There is also plenty of scope to experiment with different colours and stitch patterns. Bear in mind though when trying differing stitches that you are creating something to be walked upon. Raised or loose stitches can catch on people’s toes or shoes, plus they will not wear as well as with a chunkier stitch. So I really don’t advise any open or lacey stitching. hOOKInG

Rugs can be hooked in two different ways. Using rug canvas, or if you can get hold of a sacking veggie or potato bag it would

Bugged By Bugs?


O YOu CAn’T bite back,but you can relax in your garden or on the patio without being literally swarmed by them. OK one or two may well find their way through, don’t bugs always, but you will also have an itch relief to hand if you plant or pot some of the plants I’m suggesting. Strangely enough you will find most of them to be herbs...very useful.

On a patio or for use as a garden screen you can’t beat lemon grass. It grows busy and tall and planted into a row of lage pots makes for a little privacy as well as repelling the little critters. Lemon balm is a natural bug repellent as it contains high levels of the compound citronella which gives it its lemony aroma and flavour that bugs hate so much. You can also rub the fresh leaves directly on your skin in those prone bitten areas. Peppermint too is another that biting bugs just do not like the smell of. If those pesky crits do happen to get

a nip...crush a leaf to release those juices and rub it into the bite as this herb can also double duty as itch relief. Lavender too keeps the bugs at bay, it has a lovely scent and pretty p u r p l e flowers. Ideal for the home too. The best one I

know of has t o be catnip. I t also r e p e l s cockroaches, s o m e thing that many of us living here can certainly appreciate. Can also be used as in the lemon balm, crushed and rubbed onto the skin. A word of warning though...your cat will be obsessed. She/he will be

rolling and frollicking all over your legs and plants. A little tip whilst on the subject of roaches...bay leaves...fresh if you can but dried do help a little. Placing the odd single leaf around cupboards drawers behind curtains or furniture will certainly help keep them away. A must in your kitchen. There are an awful lot of herbs that are said to distract the mozzies so next time you barbeque throw some sage or rosemary on the coals always seems to be the one tending the barbie that gets bit first ...ever noticed. I do have one final tip whilst your waiting for those plants to grow ...and a very effective one it is too. A good homemade remedy is to mix Listerine (about a tablespoon) with 8 fluid ounces of fabric softener. Yep that’s right. Good old Listerine mouthwash and the stuff you use in the washing machine. Mix and spray away at your skin...does a brilliant job.

cost you next to nothing to make by again using discarded clothing old bedding etc. Short pieces of yarn or fabric are used making little knots with a latch hook, filling in spaces on your canvas or sacking. You could also, for a flatter rug, use a continuous strand, fabric being the better choice, and pull it through a piece of burlap with a plain rug hook making small loops as you go. For best results, hooking with burlap really needs to be done on a frame. Easy enough to make your own, then oversew the burlap around the edges and over the frame to keep it taut for working upon. Canvas backed rugs can be worked without a frame. Hooking is a good choice for making your own patterns up. Latch hooking can produce any length pile, dense or shaggy depending on the length of yarn or fabric strips that you use. I can still remember as a young child, how my dad sat me upon his knee, teaching me to latch rugs. I found it so exciting that i was willing to give up my Sunday dress and coat to make more. We had them everywhere in our home until it was decided enough was enough, and then dad, bless him, brought out the sewing machine and taught me a few things on that too. For a stocky farmer come coalminer he certainly had a deft hand with the needles and hooks.


Tenerife Weekly - 7th March 2014 - 13th March 2014

Aquarius 20 January to 18 February

Your antenna seems primed to seek out unusual experiences. You may be looking for opportunities that offer something a little bit different. Plus, social plans may have you in good spirits as the move of Venus into your sign paves the way for fun events and new friendships. Joint finances look more positive as Jupiter pushes ahead. If you’re looking for a loan, credit, or even advice, you may find your bank or financial adviser much more open to positive discussion.

Pisces 19 February to 20 March

Your originality and charisma may encourage favors from a romantic interest. However, if romance isn’t on your mind, you’ve got what it takes to launch an innovative and creative project. Group activities can open up exciting new avenues of opportunity as career and social interests combine productively. At this time of potential change, a friend can be counted on to provide tangible support. Later, resist the temptation to rush or you could end up having to redo a project or chore.

Aries 21 March to 19 April

It’s time to tap into your intuition and pay attention to feelings that can enliven your ambitions and projects. A fresh perspective on an important goal could be the catalyst that encourages you to make a move. This is also a good time to enjoy the people in your life and perhaps make entertainment, party, or other fun plans. A romantic notion could take hold, but with Mars currently retrograde it’s best to tread water rather than start a conversation you might regret later.

Taurus 20 April to 20 May

A meeting that has the potential for romance could be on your mind over the days ahead. However, this could be a case of fact versus fantasy, as you may be reading more into a situation than is really there. The Sun in intuitive Pisces links into your sixth sense, so pay attention to your gut reaction and take it from there. Important goals and career potentials are highlighted this week. Success may come down to thinking outside the box and trying out new ideas for size.

Gemini 21 May to 21 June

The loving feelings you have for your partner or sweetheart may boost your desire to shop this week, especially if you’re intending to buy them something special. As Jupiter forges ahead, money matters may start to show a positive angle that you’ll appreciate, especially if you’ve experienced a recent downturn. This is just as well, as a focus on your travel and adventure sector might entice you to plan ahead for a vacation or romantic break. If your love life needs a boost, this might just do it!

Cancer 22 June to 22 July

Have things taken a backward turn recently? It might be time to celebrate as Jupiter moves ahead once again after its retrograde phase. You can consider these two phases as similar to pulling back the bowstring before shooting an arrow. Now you have all the power, insight, and information you need to take aim and hit the center of the target. Whatever your current goal or focus, you could be quite impressive. You might also want to research any resources available for your next step.

Leo 23 July to 22 August

It may help to know your limitations this week. Try not to take on more than you can Take care of matters close to your heart, as a focus on relationships spotlights insightful opportunities to improve your love life. Passions may be muted and your fiery charisma could give way to a sensitive appreciation of the folks around you. Your appreciation of other people’s quirks and unique traits could be pleasantly enhanced once Venus enters Aquarius. You might be drawn to dating someone because their outlook is unusual and refreshing. Still, try to avoid mixed signals as Mars continues to rewind.

Virgo 23 August to 22 September

Any unpremeditated moves concerning joint finances should be avoided, if possible. Ongoing planetary patterns suggest you may be tempted to go over your limit if you need money in a hurry. As Mars continues its retrograde phase in your personal financial sector, it’s time to get organized, catch up on bills, and begin to pay off any debts. Relationships look positive and upbeat, although you might need to make a sacrifice regarding a romantic opportunity. It could be worth it for a more successful outcome.

libra 23 September to 23 October

Career matters may now show greater promise as Jupiter turns direct. If you’ve felt frustrated recently, see this as having done the groundwork. Your past efforts may now begin to show fresh roots and shoots. Along with this, romantic opportunities now get a boost as Venus glides into Aquarius. An impulse to get to know someone better could surprise you. Perhaps you’ll spot a side to the person that piques your curiosity. Renewed efforts to adopt a healthier way of life could benefit you, too.

Scorpio 24 October to 21 November

Thoughts of taking up a romantic opportunity could be linked to a desire to expand your options. The fun and playful side of relationships can positively impact your bond as of this week. Whether you’re newly in love or in a long-term partnership, it’s worth experimenting with ways to enjoy life and set your spirit free. Your home sector is also in focus as the presence of Venus might inspire you to redecorate or generally brighten things up. Consider entertaining and making new friends.

Sagittarius 22 November to 21 December

Mars will be retrograde in Libra for some time yet. The Sun sextiles Pluto on Monday, paving the way for a day of small but not insignificant changes. At the same time the Sun conjuncts Chiron, which could highlight healing options that can help ease an awkward situation. Venus moves out of Capricorn into Aquarius, bringing friendly opportunities to move in social circles. Finally, Jupiter turns direct in Cancer this week, so if your luck has been delayed, you may soon find opportunity knocking at your door.

Capricorn 22 december to 19 January

Life on the home front could be prone to disruptions, which might mean you feel generally unsettled. Yet despite this, you could be excited by the prospects open to you, which seem to beckon when you’re willing to move out of your comfort zone. However, there’s no rush. The plans you have in mind may be best handled by taking a longer view. If you’re consistent, you’ll get there in the end. You might want to treat yourself to one or two of life’s little luxuries as Venus sashays into Aquarius.

Canine Carnival


T’S CArnIVAl time not just here in Tenerife but worldwide, including the mother of all Carnivals, rio, Brazil!! Although the very word carnival means to

take away meat, which you’d think dogs would have a problem with, it seems that there are plenty of puppy partiers, as these photos from Rio will prove!!

PUgH´s PAntrY By Barry Pugh



he first time I ever made marshmallows, it didn’t go to plan. I spent hours slaving over a boiling saucepan

and proudly posted a picture of the result on Facebook. The first and only comment

pronouncedthat it looked like ‘whale blubber’. Not the culinary triumph I’d hoped for. However, marshmallows are growing in popularity. Homemade, gourmet-style mallows are the talk of the food town, popping up in food markets, cookbooks and delis across the world in all sorts of new and exciting flavours. Feeling

inspired, I decided to give it another go and, thankfully, this simple recipe I found from Dr. Oetker was a breeze. It produced a glut of pretty marshmallows with a fluffy, light-as-air texture. And this time, eventhe fussiest of my friends scoffed them down — without a single reference to a certain sea mammal...


1 sachet of Dr. Oetker Egg White Powder 5 leaves of Dr. Oetker Select Fine Leaf Gelatine 100g granulated sugar

50g Dr. Oetker Liquid Glucose 5mI vanilla extract 25g corn flour


Grease and line an 18cm square, 2.5cm deep cake tin. In a large, heatproof bowl, make up the egg white powder according to the packet instructions, and whisk until very stiff. Set aside. Cut the gelatine leaves into a small heatproof bowl. Add 60ml cold water and soak for 5 mins. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until melted. Remove and set aside. Put the sugar in a small pan with 50ml water and the liquid glucose. Heat gently, stirring, until melted. Raise the heat and let the mixture bubble until it becomes syrupy and reaches 118°C (use a sugar thermometer). Remove from the heat.

Whisk the egg white mixture while pouring in the hot sugar syrup. Continue whisking as you gradually pour in the liquid gelatine and vanilla extract, to form a thick, glossy, meringue-like mixture (this takes about 5mins). Scrape the mixture into the tin and smooth the top. Leave in a cool, dry place (not the fridge) for 3-4 hrs., until firm and set. Dust a work surface with corn flour and turn the marshmallow out onto it. Peel off the paper and cut into 25 chunks. Toss in the corn flour to lightly coat. Store between sheets of greaseproof paper in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.

Pugh’s tips / hints RUN YOUR KNIFE under hot water before cutting thesquares — it makes it much neater. Coat the cubes with desiccated coconut or finelychopped nuts for a different texture.

37 parkle´s S y r r Ba Tenerife Weekly - 7th March 2014 - 13th March 2014

Marshmallows make a lovely gift, stacked incellophane and tied with a ribbon. For pink rose marshmallows: Instead of the vanilla extract, add a few drops of rosewater and a few drops of red food

colouring. For chocolate marshmallows: Instead of the vanilla extract, sift 2tbsp cocoa powder into the egg white mixture.

Need For Speed: The Ultimate Petrolhead Movie?

arch 14th sees the release of the movie that promises to shake the Fast and Furious off the top spot when it comes to fast, expensive car lovers wet dream of a movie! Need For Speed, which was first released back in 1994, with almost 30 sequels/spinoffs, is the most successful racing video game series in the world, and one of the most successful video game franchises of all time. Now it’s been turned into a movie starring

Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman, actor Aaron Paul… except it doesn’t really, it stars the awesome machinery that goes into cars like the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Koenigsegg Agera, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, McLaren P1, Saleen S7, and even a rare GTA Spano. There will also be a brand new 2015 Ford Mustang GT as well as a heavily modified 2014 model with a wide-body kit. As if that wasn’t enough for the true fast car officianado, the makers, including director Scott Waugh, and the team of daredevil

stunt drivers, insist that every stunt in the movie is real and has been actually driven and performed by one of the supercars or their significantly - -at least by comparison replica stunt cars, the only CGI used here will be to remove the multitude of cameras used to grab every possible angle of every bone shattering action scene, and the stunt driver who is really controlling the actors wheels from a roof mounted rig!! Who cares if there’s barely a whiff of a plot in the game...just look at those cars!!

BBC 1 - 19:30 - 20:00


AnG GOES ThE ThEOrY is back, with another eight exciting episodes, tackling the topics of the moment, the science that affects all our lives.

Where are we in our fight against cancer? How will we be able to get to work on our ageing railways, full to capacity and yet population rising? And as we all need to decide whether to allow the NHS to share our medical records, who is really set to benefit from the Big Data Explosion? This series is the definitive guide to the science driving the headlines. Presenters Jem Stansfield, Liz Bonnin and Maggie

Philbin investigate how close Britain might get to running out of electricity. We live in a world where the lights are always on. But will that be the case in 20 years time? Maggie Philbin spends a day in one of Britain’s most secret locations, the control room of the National Grid – whose job it is to make sure the electricity is always there when you need it. Here she learns that almost half our generating capacity will disappear in our lifetimes. Jem shows how and why most of our electricity now relies on gas and reveals a potential fuel of the future: liquid air.

Inside No 9

BBC 2 - 22:00 - 22:30


rOm GOThIC hOrrOr and comedy of manners, to silent farce and psychological thriller, each week Inside no. 9 takes us into the minds of reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, and into worlds where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre. This week, we knock at our darkest door, where brother and sister Hector and Tabitha never go out and have to live in a


carefully refrigerated gothic mansion. But tonight they have an event so special that a babysitter is required. For Katy, the offer of £88 in the hand is too good to turn down. And, what could be so difficult about baby-sitting Andras, Hector and Tabitha’s bedridden, disabled, elderly brother, whose bedroom is up on the top floor of the house? Starring Reece Shearsmith as Hector and Helen McCrory as Tabitha, Aimeé-ffion Edwards as Katy, Poppy Rush as Shell and Sean Buckley as Andras.

n dAY ThrEE of the Oscar Pistorius trial. A witness at the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius has said the South African athlete was responsible for a weapon being fired at a restaurant last year. Boxer Kevin Lerena told the court that The 27-year-old double amputee had asked the owner of the gun to take the blame. The incident happened the month

before Mr Pistorius shot dead his 29-yearold girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, he denies intentionally killing her, saying he mistook her for an intruder and of illegally possessing ammunition. Steenkamp, a model and reality TV star, was shot dead in the early hours of Valentine’s Day last year at Mr Pistorius’s home in the capital, Pretoria. The arrest of a national sporting hero, who won gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games and also competed at

the Olympics, astounded South Africa. Mr Lerena testified that he had been to Tasha’s Restaurant in Johannesburg with Mr Pistorius and two other people, including Darren Fresco, in January 2013. Mr Fresco had passed his firearm to Mr Pistorius and said “I’m one up”, meaning there was a bullet in the chamber of the gun, Mr Lerena said. When the firearm was handed over, there was a shot followed by “complete silence”, the boxer added.

“I looked down, and where my foot was there was a hole in the floor,” he told the court. “I had a little graze on my toe, but I wasn’t hurt.” Mr Pistorius had apologised and asked Mr. Fresco to take the blame, which he had agreed to do, Mr Lerena said. “Please, I don’t want any attention around me. Just say it was you,” he pleaded, according to Mr Lerena.

McIlroy’s florida disappointment


OrThErn IrElAnd’S rory mcIlroy lost in a play-off at the honda Classic in Florida when he let slip a two-shot lead and while world number one Tiger Woods withdrew due to injury. Woods was forced to withdraw on the 13th hole because of back pain. he had hit a five-under-par 65 on Saturday to move into contention but was five over in his final round when he quit. his withdrawal comes six weeks before the mas-

ters at Augusta - the first major of 2014 - which takes place from 1013 April. Woods, 38, said:

“It’s my lower back with spasms, it started while I was warming up. It’s going to be hard to get over because I had a great chance to win my first tournament of the season and I didn’t.” McIlroy, carded a four-over-par 74, but missed a 12-foot eagle putt at the last to win outright. He admitted he was fortunate to have reached the play-off after dropping six shots in 11 holes from the seventh, including a double-bogey six on the par-four 16th where he hit his ball out of a bunker and into water. He followed that with

another bogey on the 17th, which left him needing a birdie on the last to get into the play-off at eight under. The 24-year-old gave himself a chance of victory though with a stunning second shot on the par-five hole that finished 12 feet from the hole but he was unable to hole the eagle putt that would have won him the title. McIlroy said later: “I didn’t play well enough to deserve to win, it’s very disappointing. It was a perfect opportunity to win. No one was really coming at me. There’s a few positives to take, but obviously it’s going to be hard to get over because I had a great chance to win my first tournament of the season and I

didn’t.” American Russell Henley won a play-off, which also featured compatriot Ryan Palmer and Scotland’s Russell Knox, with a birdie at the first extra hole. Henley, who qualified for the Masters, won at the first extra hole with a two-foot birdie putt. Henley who won his first PGA Tour title at last year’s Sony Open in Hawaii said: “I was so nervous coming down the stretch, I hope I can have a bunch more Sundays just like that in my career. It was a rush to be out there playing with Rory and the crowd. I’ve never been part of a crowd so big cheering for me. It was an amazing feeling. It was so much fun.”

53 Formula 1 Grand Prix To Be Pay-Per-View From 2016 F Tenerife Weekly - 7th March 2014 - 13th March 2014

ORMULA 1 Grand Prix fans with ‘mainstream’ Spanish television via TDT will have to pay to watch races from 2016 onwards.

Satellite digital provider Movístar TV, which is part of the telecommunications company Telefónica and offers its television services as a package along with internet, landline telephone and mobile phone networks, has acquired the rights to broadcast Formula 1 for this year through to 2017 inclusive, possibly longer if the deal is renewed. Telefónica has just signed the broadcasting agreement with Formula One Management. This year and next – 2015 – Movístar TV will not have the exclusive broadcasting rights, since these will be shared with A Tres Media which will continue to show the races free of charge for the next two seasons. After that, only pay-per-view customers will be able to watch the Grand

Deceased Coach Gets Avenue Named After Him


he avenue giving way to Atletico Madrid’s new stadium will be named after former Spain coach and club figure Luis Aragones, who died this month. Aragones enjoyed a successful playing career at Atletico, a club which he also coached on five occasions. The Spanish league club is expected to

move away from the Vicente Calderon by the 2016-17 season. Madrid Mayor Ana Botella made the announcement as the team visited La Peneita, the Olympic stadium site. Aragones led Spain to victory in the 2008 European Championship, a breakthrough success as it went on to win the World Cup and successfully defend its European crown in 2012. Aragones died at the age of 75 following a battle with leukemia.

Prix on Sundays. This follows on from MotoGP, for which Movístar TV has the broadcasting rights, but in the case of the mo-

torcycling Grand Prix races, these are shared with Mediaset and can be watched without paying. Mediaset will broadcast

nine MotoGP races live and the remaining 10 after the event, whilst Telefónica will broadcast all 19 of them live, but on a pay-per-view basis.

La Liga To Tweet Game Highlights


ideo clips from La Liga will be available via Twitter after the league struck an agreement with the social network and rights holder Mediapro.

Using Twitter’s Amplify tool, which launched in May 2013 and enables users to attach videos to tweets in real time, the Liga de Fútbol Profesional

(LFP) will make highlights of every game available to users around the world as they occur, making La Liga the first European league to take advantage of service, following in the footsteps of American major leagues such as the NBA, NFL and MLB. Spain’s top soccer competition has launched a new Twitter handle called @LaLiga to replace its old @LFPNews account. The new channel will

broadcast audio and video content, including goals and player interviews, before, during and after each game. LFP president Javier Tebas said: “The agreement will allow us to more effectively achieve one of the priorities that we have set for La Liga. The globalisation of the Liga BBVA, the best league in the world, now is the best in the social network world.”

T’S A rIGhT old dog fight in the Tercera division as the top four sides in section 12 jockey for supremacy. Cd marino’s four game winning run came to an end at lanzarote with a 1-0 defeat on Saturday.

ers Granadilla. This Sunday it’s back to home action as Marino try to put some space between them and

fifth placed Villa Santa Brigada in Las Americas at noon, entry is 8 euros and kids get in free.

A draw would have been a good result away from home but the home side struck in the 85 th minute through Angel. They still had time to hit back, especially when the ref added on six minutes of injury time, Airam came so close to levelling from a last gasp corner. Mensajero were the only team in the top four to win, their victory came over lead-

Limber Up for Las galletas And La Laguna Y es I know it’s getting hot and none of us are getting any younger but the las Galletas half marathon makes a 9 am start on Sunday 6 April and has a range of age categories from 18 to 65 plus.. If you are quick out of the blocks you can save money by en-

tering before 23 march.

The cost includes a commemorative t-shirt and an electronic chip to record your time, there are also cash prizes including 60 euros for the winners of each veteran category, that’s over 35 years old, and between 100 and 750 euros for the top 10 men and women overall.

You can sign up at any Base Deportes Natalia sports shop or at

No Stage fright After greek drama


week is a long time in basketball, Iberostar Tenerife had to negotiate choppy waters but emerged with renewed hope. They had to release new Greek pivot lazaros Papadopolous after just one game, his leg injuries and general fitness problems meant the veteran couldn’t be relied upon in the ACB league. That left them short for the trip to real madrid but

despite everything they played better before going down 87-76.

At the halfway stage Tenerife were just a point adrift and they overcame that with a 13-19 third quarter before the home side powered to a 33-17 final segment. As always the former La Laguna player Sergio Rodriguez was a big hitter for Madrid with 22 points but Tenerife had a hero in Argentinian Juan Gutierrez who shared top billing with Saul Blanco on 15 points. There was even a senior debut for Senegal youngster

Mamadou “Petit” Niang who gained 30 seconds of experience. The 20 year old was spotted playing locally for RC Nautico in the EBA League. The search is on again for a new pivot to fill the huge boots of Blagota Sekulic who went to play in Turkey. Othello Hunter who played for Valladolid last season is one solution or Mirza Begic just released from Olimpiakos could get the call. This Saturday Tenerife will be looking to home form to lift them from 13th place if they can beat Estudiantes, the game starts at 7pm.

55 CD Tenerife Class Of 2014 Pass Another Exam


ea d m aste r Alvaro Cervera must be mighty proud of his CD Tenerife squad, just like last season the coach has seen his class grow in stature, this 2-2 draw at Real Madrid Castilla again showed resilience and skill.

Even great international coaches have floundered when trying to rotate their squad but Cervera has them all hungry for a place, Inigo Ros for Aitor Sanz was a surprise but maybe a warning that Sanz needs to cut down on his bookings. More like a wet night in Wigan than a trip to the capital, the players were greeted with driving rain and enough wind to knock your wig off. That was soon forgotten as Loro launched a corner from the right and Aridane imposed himself on his markers to head a strong goal after just six minutes. Ayoze Diaz, back after an 11 year gap, looked comfortable at left back as pocket powerhouse Raul Camara re-

Tenerife Weekly - 7th March 2014 - 13th March 2014

verted to the right for the suspended Moyano. Edgar continued to impress on the left wing and Ayoze Perez had a couple of good chances, the first blocked by group defending and the other set up by Edgar was chipped a little short. Ricardo went close early in the second half but a mistake by Roberto let Castilla back in. Aguza let rip with a long drive and Roberto was slow to get across and the ball beat him at the post. The spirit was good, no arguing just back down to work, Edgar limped off as Cristo arrived and Suso was not far behind to take the place of Loro. Suso got a stupid booking but it didn’t soften his impact, that right wing was his and he set about torturing the defence. Ricardo could have restored the lead from a free kick but his shot was overcooked. Castilla were a good side, their lowly position is misleading and they came again and found the Tenerife defence wanting, Camara in particular, and De Tomas scored with 20 minutes left. Tenerife sensed there was plenty left in this game and pushed forward, Suso fired

at the keeper after wriggling free of his markers and Cristo curled a shot wide. The equalizer was worth the wait, Aridane showed great awareness and control to flick the ball onto Ayoze Perez, his little legs went into overdrive and left a couple of defenders behind before a calm finish. The look skywards dedicated the goal to his Gran who died in the week. Castilla were still a danger, Burgui powered in a shot but Roberto responded well to tip it over the bar, Jaime was an inch away in the last minute but Tenerife deserved a point for their sheer determination. This Sunday Recreativo visit Santa Cruz for a 5pm game, Suso and Carlos Ruiz sit it out suspended but the coach will have weighed up several worthy replacements, if Alberto takes the central defence role the team could start with nine Canarians. It’s the last day of Santa Cruz Carnaval so hopefully we will see men in dresses and cartoon characters bouncing with joy at the final whistle.

Goalie School Is In Safe Hands T he last line of defence and often the first target for blame, goalkeepers are a special breed, thankfully they have always been well looked after in Tenerife by a dedicated goalie school, Escuela Insular de Porteros.

The last few months have been worrying times for the school but their three centres in La Laguna, La Orotava, and Adeje have been saved thanks to

renewed backing from the Tenerife government and the councils of each of those municipalities. That means they can go on nurturing talented boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 18, they give them a full programme of help from playing to tactics and even psychology. CD Tenerife are now reaping the rewards of developing local shot stoppers, senior team number one Roberto, has grabbed the gloves this season and reserve keeper Nauzet, currently injured,

is seen as one of the finest prospects at the club. It helps having a former staff member of the school on the CD Tenerife back room team. Zeben Ortiz had 15 years working for the school, club physio Guillermo Rodriguez and second trainer Roberto Perera had both worked with him in the past and recommended him when coach Alvaro Cervera wanted a specialist goalkeeping coach on the books. Earlier this week B team keeper Carlos was invited along to train with the seniors.
