Canarian Government Approves Tax Increases

The Canarian Government has announced a range of measures to replace regional income lost in the cuts made by Madrid in the recent budget. Apart from organisational and personnel changes, some of which include the closure of Canarian Television’s Channel 2 and pay reductions for public employees, there are fiscal changes which will see taxes rise. Three of those changes, which will perhaps have the most direct impact are: IGIC (Canarian VAT) is to go up. This is a banded tax, and the changes will see the general 5% rate (that applied to property purchases from developers, for example) increased to 7%. The 2% rate will rise to 3%, and the 9% and 13% rates to 9.5% and 13.5%, respectively. Articles which are zero rated, generally those deemed “essentials”, will remain zero rated. IGIC discounts for fixed and mobile telephone lines will be withdrawn: these will now attract the 5% rate instead of being exempt.

Editorial

Hello readers, and welcome to another edition of Tenerife Weekly. Firstly, I would like to offer my congratulations to Wingate School, who are celebrating thirty years of teaching our kids. I know many ex-alumni of this fine establishment, and (for the most part!) they all seem to have turned out just fine. Fasnia are going green (page 8.) Good for them. I know that wind turbines can be a contentious issue to some people, but in my opinion, they don’t have to be a blight on the landscape, and indeed, can blend in quite nicely, given the right setting.

The Canarian Accent: The Spaniards’ Favourite

The canary accent, w i t h 35-percent of votes, is the favourite accent of the Spanish, while Argentina’s accent has the greatest passion, with 45-percent support, according to a study published by Hoteles.com. The Canarian accent is followed by Andalusia, with 30-percent of votes, and the Basque Country and Madrid, with 10-percent each. However, this study also reveals that certain accents are less liked, as is the case with Catalan, Galician and Extremadura, with a “dislike” of 25-, 20-

and 10-percent, respectively. Globally, the Italiansounding Argentine accent is a favourite, with 30-percent of the vote, while the romantic French rank in a modest third place

with 15-percent of the vote. On the other hand, among the least preferred are Turkish and German, which occupy the top of the “dislike” list, both with 25-percent of the votes. However, those accents considered less attractive are also those which people wish to learn more. This is the case with Catalan, which received 40-percent of the votes as the favourite language to study, something that also happens to German.

Continued from page 1 Fuel taxes are also to rise, the first time in the Canaries since 2004. The increases will add an extra 5.5 cents per litre to unleaded 98; an additional 5 cents to unleaded 95; and put diesel up 10 cents. Diesel for commercial purposes will not be affected. The 99.9% reduction in the inheritance tax rate for fiscal residents, only recently introduced, has

been removed. The Government says that despite representations from Ashotel, amongst others, there will be no changes in the provisions for the tourist sector. The measures were put before the Canarian Parliament on Thursday (31st) to initiate the proceedings; these are expected to come into force on 1st July.

Over 7,000 Euros Donated To “Sports For All” Project Compañía Cervecera de Canarias has presented the sports association for people with disabilities, Ademi, with a 7.050 Euros check corresponding to the 10 Euros donation for each one of the 705 people that finished the 11th “Santa Cruz de Tenerife” Half Marathon on 6th November, which was sponsored by the brewing company. Present at the ceremony were the CEO of Compañía Cervecera, Mark Tindall, and the president of the Club Ademi Tenerife, Carlos Correa. This is the second year in a row Compañía Cervecera has carried out this initiative; it seeks to promote the development of the “Sports for all” project of Ademi Tenerife, and wants to administer the adapted sport in the south of the island, from Arico to Santiago del Teide. The initiative hopes to get people with disabilities to start in sports, as well as promoting social integration.

The donation from Compañía Cervecera will allow these kinds of activities to be carried out in the Centro de Diversidad Funcional del Mojón, administered by Arona city hall, as well as the Complejo Deportivo de las Torres and the swimming pool of Tenerife Top Training, thanks to an agreement signed by the Adeje city hall for the promotion of the adapted sport. With the contribution given by Compañía Cervecera after the 2010 Half Marathon, the hiring of the instructors, as well as the purchasing of adapted sports equipment

and the repairing of wheelchairs to play basketball was paid for. With this sum of money, the Club Ademi Tenerife is planning to keep doing these activities, as well as intensifying the efforts of spreading those activities that the club carries out in the south of the island. The development of this initiative is within the actions of social investment the company carries out beside its business activity and with which it wants to consolidate and promote its commitment of improving the wellbeing of the community in which it operates.

Rivero Reads The Riot Act

The President of the Canary Islands, Paulino Rivero, used Wednesday’s Día de Canarias (Canary Islands’ Day) to read the riot act to central government, from the Auditorium in Santa Cruz. He emphasised that the control of the deficit and spending cuts cannot lead to a centralisation of the state. “Do not tie the hands and feet of the autonomous communities,” said Rivero, who added: “In the Canary Islands, targets cannot be met unless more help is received. Madrid should reconsider some decisions, because otherwise you will be feeding loss of convergence with the rest of the state. Or, put another way; open the door for the Canaries to move away from Spain. “ At that point, Rivero alluded to his recent meeting with Mariano Rajoy: “just a week ago, I told the Prime Minister of our wanting to build the trust required for both governments to work for loyalty and mutual respect. A shared vocation is well assured by emphasising the State’s willingness to maintain a good relationship with the Canary Islands. Here in the islands, we have a long tradition of agreements on major issues; at regional level and at State and the European Union levels. That has always been our aim and will remain so. “ Madrid, the president added, “cannot ignore more than two million people who live two thousand miles away. The government should be aware of the true scale of the problems we are experiencing, and economic and social consequences that can result without a true state policy with the Islands. The road ahead is

not confrontation, but the overcoming of old schemes to move toward less dependence on central government. “ “If we share the need to promote measures to improve the treatment given to our Islands, we must all make ourselves heard as one voice. Demand rights, not privileges. We demand justice, not discretion. “ At one point in his speech, Rivero said: “The state must do their part, do their homework. We live in an extreme situation that requires that we are addressed as a criterion of the State, and not just for electoral calculations. We need a framework to help us continue to build our economic model, to make it less vulnerable and more competitive. And above all, to ensure that our economy can create jobs. Employment generation is and will remain at the top of our agendas. “

Unemployed Man Delivers 700 Kilos of Food to Needy

Richi Garcia Ducha is 41 years old, a father and unemployed, but knows that others are “much worse off” than him, so he decided to start a charity campaign on Facebook with the aim of giving all the proceeds to the Social Services. “I’m unemployed, but enough people are faring much worse than me.” Mr. Garcia Ducha, from La Palma, decided to take supportive action through Facebook for the most needy; those families of La Palma who have insufficient resources to make ends meet, or even to get through tomorrow, and

asked for the support of his friends, through the social networking site, to collect food. What started just a month ago, ended on Tuesday (29th) in the multipurpose hall of Santa Cruz de La Palma. The charity delivered more than 700 kilos of food to the Social Services of the municipalities of Santa Cruz de La Palma, Villa de Mazo and Los Llanos - “I called some corporations with regard to delivering the items to the needy, but they never answered.” Canned rice, roasted maize, milk, fruit juice, oil, coffee, biscuits, potatoes, and many other items were donated. “I

have to thank the efforts of all those who have worked at this difficult time for the people in crisis. I had nowhere to put so much food,” he said. To the question of how it all started he said: “Instead of standing there, doing nothing, I talked to some friends and they said they were willing to cooperate, so I decided to start with the collection. It’s okay to ask institutions to help people who are hurting in other parts of the world, but we must also help the people closest to us; such as the neighbour who may not be in the best economic conditions, but does not complain.”

Tenerife Employment Has Bleak Outlook A report on the province of Tenerife, prepared by an agency under the Ministry of Employment, recognises that the “aggressive” labour reforms and the “deep” public sector adjustment will destroy more jobs in the short term. It also stresses that it is “extremely important” to give more training to the unemployed. The Ministry of Employment foresees the near future as “clearly negative” for the island’s labour market. The document has been prepared by the Provincial Directorate of SEPE (Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal – State Employment Service), who reviewed the work conditions of Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro in 2011. The report said the “aggressive” labour reform and the “profound adjustment (trimming),” of the public sector “will cause more unemployment directly, as well as decrease disposable income.” The forecast is in agreement with a statement from the employers’ union, CEOE-Tenerife province, which states that 60 less jobs a day will be available from July; an acceleration in the pace of job loss.

It is noteworthy that SEPE has itself felt the impact of layoffs. Still, the report notes some niches of employment that still offer possibilities, particularly the tourist industry. Up until March it was noted that the arrival of foreigners were similar terms to those of 2011, but in April there was a significant decline of over 13% from the previous year. “Only if the sector remains buoyant will growth occur in hiring cooks, waiters, tour guides, travel agency employees, receptionists and housekeepers,” says SEPE. Training is a major gap between the employed and unemployed in Tenerife. “In a province where one in three job seekers have not completed primary education, it is extremely important to apply solutions for both the employed and the unemployed to acquire training,” notes the study. It is therefore a “must” to train professionals in certain occupations, suggests the state employment service. In addition to services related to tourism, the construction companies should also focus on training, because there is “a need” for construction and it “has an important role in job creation.”

Fasnia Wants to Create a “Mega Generator”

Fasnia wants to become a benchmark in terms of alternative energy generation. The municipality are looking at the construction of a “mega generator” power station, which involves the installation of a wind turbine over a hundred meters high that will be located at a site on the coast. On Tuesday (29th) the project developer, Martin Tavares, explained the details of the plans to the mayor of the municipality, Damian Pérez Viera, and the Deputy Minister of Industry and Energy of the Canary Islands, Francisca Luengo, during a visit to different parts of the municipality in which they want to develop infrastructure for alternative energy generation. Pérez Viera said the proposal would have a capacity of 4.5 megawatts, but “is somewhat paralysed in some departments of the

Cabildo at the moment.” The installation and operation of the turbine, with 160 meter long blades, will be borne by private investment. Also during the visit, which was also attended by Nicolas Díaz, CEO of the Canary Islands Technological Institute (ITC), details of another project were discussed. Called the “virtual raft” it consists of desalinated water distribution through the four channels that run through the municipality. The system would use a

method of pumping from the coast to the areas where channels run, using wind power. This new infrastructure will not require large investments, because the channels are already built. The City Council has shown its willingness to provide all the means and procedures for promoting both projects, “because it would provide short-term income since Fasnia is to become a pilot village in alternative energy.”

Wingate Celebrates 30th Birthday Wingate School opened in 1982 with seven pupils aged between 5 and 7 years. Wingate School has grown over the last 30 years into a thriving international school of some 360 pupils of many nationalities from Nursery Class through to Sixth Form. Wingate students have gone on to study in universities throughout the world; and in one case, to lecture to post graduate students at the Imperial College of London. The steady growth of the school has been nurtured by the excellent staff through the years and none more so than Carol and Steve Hill, who after giving exemplary service of about 50 years between them, will be retiring at the end of June. On Saturday 23rd of June, from 7.00 pm to 10.00 pm, drinks will be served at the school for all ex pupils, parents and staff at which there will be a presentation to Mr and Mrs Hill. We feel sure that if you were one of the thousands of pupils to have had the good fortune to have been taught

by them, or a parent of an ex pupil, you will wish to be present to say your farewell. Mr and Mrs Hill have also instigated collections of thousands of euros over the years for K9.

Tenerife Weekly - 1st June - 7th June 2012 LOCAL NEWS

Rituals are objective dramatisations of the subjective art of self-perfection: it is a ceremonious and attractive display of rhythm and beauty of the human life. An average religious Hindu starts his daily routine in devotion and focus to God, in the form of Brahman, because he firmly believes that the human being is essentially divine. The Hindus believe that God manifests himself as the creative and preserving power of the whole universe, and unto him, the universe will return. The entire phenomenal world rises, exists, dissolves, and again rises in him. He firmly believes that these three functions of creation, preservation and dissolution are different aspects of one single Supreme Being, called God. He is further perceived as the creator, in the form of Brahman, as preserver in the form of Vishnu and as a constructive destroyer of all evil, in the form of Shiva. It is believed that every human being brought about in this world; regardless of his caste, creed, colour, gender, etc. can attain (or has the power to attain) the knowledge of this truth, and make and live his life in accordance or as an expression of it. Hindus believe that perfection is a virtue open to all, because it is the very nature of all; it just has to be tapped. This belief of an average Hindu takes the form of rituals, which are associated with the sculptures and images of the various deities. Hindu religious practices centre on the importance of fulfilling the duties associated both one’s social position and stage of life. All stages of life for the Hindu, however, involve religious rituals and practices. One of the most prominent of these is the greeting of Namaste, which tries to create a virtue of humility, and imbibe in every being the divinity of each single creature of God. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, namah and te = namaste , meaning, “I bow to you” . This means we recognise the presence of the Lord in each one of us, therefore this channels us for a deeper, divine communion, complete with love and respect. Another important ritual is the application of the bindi, or tilak, on one’s forehead; which symbolises the Hindu’s regard for the third eye, or the eye of wisdom and enlightenment, which we believe is opened when a person or human being in form of a spiritual seeker purifies his mind, and goes

Hindu Rituals - A Profound Perspective Jyoti Prakash Udhwani, Correspondant for the local Indian Community

beyond relative existence to merge into pure consciousness with the Lord. The Japa, or chanting of a particular mantra which one himself chooses through his very own convenience and suitability, or in many cases at times depending on the advice of a particular Guru, or Master, who every individual elects for himself through his very own choice. The Japa of this mantra will make one form a lifetime of a divine habit. We will quickly begin to feel the presence of God in our lives. It makes us feel stronger than the external circumstances that chain us in our daily lives. It will make us realise that nothing anyone says has the power to reach our hearts. Japa will plug us into the divine power house; it will give us that great, direct connection to God, and guide us throughout our lives. A mantra is a broom that sweeps out the dust of our minds, thus making it clearer and sharper. A mantra tunes our minds, thus teaching it to be focused. It will not only make our

minds clear, sharp and pure, but will shape up our entire lives. This mantra will further serve as an elixir for the body, mind, soul and spirit. Mantras are not mere words. That which uplifts us, when we reflect on it, is a mantra. Mantras are sound symbols which serve as rails for the train of thought to reach to its destination of vivid and direct experience. The ritualistic worship that every Hindu practices in the morning has a symbolic meaning; the aarti for example, when we show the aarti to the Lord, the light in which we see the idol represents the light of knowledge with which we see the lord. It is the beautiful ceremony in which deepas (oil lamps) are offered to God. The essence of this Aarti is our way of saying “thank you” to him for providing us the light of life, and the light of his blessings. It is like offering him in return the light of our gratitude, love and devotion. It is also a ceremony of humility, a time in which we acknowledge that God is everything and that we are nothing without him. In our Hindu tradition,

after the performance of the aarti, the plate with the oil lamp is then offered to each individual present during the time of worship, and each one then puts his hand on top of the flame and touches his or her eyes with that hand, which signifies that whatever vision or blessing we got from the flame or the ritual; we take it to our hearts to be there forever. Each physical act in a puja is symbolic. When the puja is over, it does not end there, the positivity, good vibrations and ecstasy stays in us intact, it then becomes our responsibility whether we should want it to be there for keeps. Another significant ritual is the Yagna, but before the yagna let us shed some light on the word AUM- which is recited before every prayer and is part of every mantra of the yagna, AUM is considered to be a very sacred word, it is considered to be Brahman himself, in the form of a word, and is therefore said to be imparting divinity, and so as it is said joined with any other word as the prefix. The word itself becomes divine and brings about certain positive vibrations which carry the ability to transform our consciousness. Thus, the yagna is, in essence, a purifying ritual. The fire that is lit in the yagna puja is believed to be a purifier of everything that comes into contact with it; we therefore do the yagna to purify ourselves as well. Offerings are made to the fire which is actually the symbol of the divine himself, these offerings are in the form of ahuti (surrender) which symbolically signify that we are giving away all our impurities, so that we be pure, so much so that every thought, word and action of ours be pure and divine. Just as the flames of the fire only rise higher and higher, we in turn also pray that the Lord may carry our lives only upwards, and thus reaching in perfect union with him our divine creator. However may one perceive them to be, but the main aim of these rituals is to give meaning and direction to our lives, we would rather indulge ourselves in these rituals, rather than engaging and using our time in negative actions and activities. An individual’s life is a continuity of experiences, driven by a constant craving to achieve complete and eternal happiness, in contact with inner and outer peace, and to live in complete harmony with the world. These universal rituals are therefore meant for our eternal enlightenment and are not merely practiced for any material gain.

Single Handed Atlantic Ya c h t s m a n R e s c u e d

A Russian sailor, who left Tenerife to cross the Atlantic singlehanded, has been rescued some 80 miles south of the island after two days adrift in a little lifeboat which he took refuge in when his yacht was about to sink. A rapid intervention craft and two helicopters went to his rescue, as well as a large number of other boats which were in the general area. All had been trying to locate him since Saturday morning (26th May.) The shipwrecked yacht was called ”Overlander”, and had been sailing under the Spanish flag, though the rescue was hampered both by the fact that it wasn’t equipped with regulation emergency equipment, such as a radio beacon and flares, and because the sailor only had a mobile telephone with which to communicate. He used this phone to call friends and family in the Canaries, France and Russia, rather than contacting emergency services, and he was unable, it appears, to give more than a general description of his whereabouts. The yachtsman has been identified as Russian journalist, Andrei Novoselov. He is to be denounced to the public prosecutor for “civil disobedience”, specifically setting sail from Tenerife

Callao Learning Centre Holiday Activities for July - August 2012 Based on our fantastic week at Easter, when 22 children joined in our activities, we are planning to make the time as fun filled as possible - purposeful play! I am conscious that many parents want their kids to keep studying, but I like to sneak up on the children so they don’t realise they are working! As I like the children to feel they have input into their activities, they may help to decide the topics they want to study, but that will depend on the age and capabilities of the group involved. If you look at our photos on the website and Facebook page, you will see the sort of thing we have done in the past; such as making a puppet show and creating a town. The topics I have in mind to

kick start us are ‘Under the Sea’ and ‘Pirates’, but the choice is endless! The Diamond Jubilee and Olympics in the UK are also events that would make for interesting activities. At 11.00 we will be stopping for snack time, and around 1.00 will be time for packed lunches, all of which the parents provide. We have a fridge available at the centre to store food safely. Children can be dropped off & collected at any time between 9 - 4, and the charges are as follows: 2.50 Euros per hour 15 Euros per day 70 Euros per week (To be paid in advance on Monday morning) You can contact us on: 922 742 000 or 695 978 551. Hope to see you and your children in July and August!

Here is a provisional daily timetable: despite a ports authority prohibition. The capitán marítimo provincial, Antonio Padrón, said that he will inform the Fiscalia and that if the public ministry agree, legal action will follow. The sailor will also be required to pay for the costs of his rescue, which

involved emergency services in a 48hour mission, including seven search and rescue helicopter flights. Sr Padrón refused to speculate on how much this would all amount to, but independent consultants reckon that the helicopter fuel alone would be in the region of 12,000 Euros.

David Cameron Urged to Prepare New Growth Push as UK Slump Deepens UK Prime Minister David Cameron faced renewed pressure to do more to spur the UK economy after figures showed Britain is in a deeper recession than first estimated. His political opponents said the slump is the result of too much austerity, not the euroregion crisis. Business lobbies and economists said the downturn bodes ill for investment and may make it harder to cut the deficit as tax revenue weakens. Cameron is losing voter support as Britain struggles to emerge from what his spokesman called “the worst financial and debt crisis of our lifetime.” The economy’s 0.3 percent contraction in the first quarter more than the 0.2 percent initially estimated means output has grown just 0.3 percent since the Conservative-led government took office two years ago. Budget cuts, a squeeze on households as inflation outpaces wages and turmoil in the euro region the biggest market for British goods are weighing on an economy that has recovered barely half of the

output lost in the recession of 2008-2009. The report capped a week of poor economic news for the UK

government. A jump in state borrowing in April raised doubts that the government can meet its goal of cutting a deficit of more

than 8 percent of gross domestic product to below 6 percent this year. Both the Conservatives and Labour claim the support of the International Monetary Fund, which this week praised the government for restoring credibility to the public finances with its plan to erase the structural deficit by 2017 while warning that tax cuts may be needed unless the economy strengthens. It’s been another difficult week in Euroland, and we are still no nearer to getting any sort of resolution to the Greek problem. In fact, after a week where Greece managed to keep off the front pages, the next few weeks will probably see the Hellenic republic back in the spotlight as we build towards a second election on June 17. Syriza, the left-wing anti-austerity party, remain front runners and the fear that Greece would leave the Euro once a new Government is elected is continuing to drive large scale withdrawals from the Greek banking system. European politicians will announce a capital injection shortly to shore up the ailing Greek banks, but it is

now becoming clear as we’re approaching the point where support for further bail-out funds (official or emergency like the Bank funds) is decreasing rapidly. Durable goods orders from the US came in exactly as forecast, rising 0.2% in April. The lack of any surprise kept the Dollar from advancing too much against its main trading partners. But the Dollar remains the best performing currency of the last two weeks and will hang on to that crown as long as the large amount of uncertainty hangs over the markets.

E f f o r t s to Sto p Children Smoking

The Canary Islands is the region in which most children are initiated earlier into smoking tobacco; something that worries experts, who insist that 30% of cancers are directly related to the habit and striking images placed on packets do not serve to dissuade people. The president of the Provincial Board of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), Juan Julio Fernández, has announced that he has launched a campaign to inform young people about addiction and the effects of the consumption of tobacco. “The average age of the onset of tobacco consumption is increasingly early, reaching an average age of 13.3 in Spain.” However, the Chief of Pulmonology at Candelaria Hospital (HUNSC), José Batista, said that “the average age is even younger, at around nine years.” Against this background, the AECC will conduct the campaign “Break the habit” which provides a list of recommendations aimed specifically at children and adolescents. The campaign will use slogans such as, “nothing is less attractive than a cigarette” ,”yellow teeth have never been

in fashion” ,”for your hair to smell of shampoo is a right not a privilege “ and “do your kisses taste like kisses?” “The only way to stop young people smoking is a progressive social change that leads them to see that although it is a glamourised habit, it is quite the opposite,” said Juan Julio Fernández, who also said, “the shocking images placed on packets do not serve to persuade people to give up smoking.” The Chief of Gynaecology at HUNSC, Philip Martín Casañas, says that “30% of cancers are directly related to smoking, a number that rises to 80% for lung cancer.”

The Secret Diner Hello readers, my name is MR E Dinner. Every week I will be visiting a different restaurant across South Tenerife, and give you a full revue of the appearance, quality and prices of the many restaurants across the South. We start off with Restuarante & Grill “El Chamo”, which is a traditional Canarian restaurant, set in the delightful surrounding of La Escalona. Located on the main road about 4km past Arona, with stunning panoramic views. On a clear day you can see as far down as Los Cristianos. From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted by one of the staff with a warm greeting of “welcome to our house”, and from then on you are looked after with the upmost service, like you are a part of the family-run business. You pick your table and then you are given fresh homemade bread with a combination of mojo verde, mojo rojo, alioli, and chorizo for you to enjoy whilst you look at the menu; which is available in English, German, French, Russian and of course Spanish. The menu is full of traditional Canarian dishes, including, fresh fish, escaldón, fresh pork, rabbit, pork, pork stew, and the house speciality grilled or roasted baby goat, to name but a few. They also have a menu of the day, which we opted for. This

comprised of half a litre of wine, and a bottle of water, your chose of either chicken or traditional vegetables, Canarian soup, followed by either pork steak or pork chop, or you can change for breast of chicken, served with homemade chips and a crisp fresh salad. For dessert: one of the mouth-watering homemade desserts. All this for only 12.00 Euros. Now I’m a big eater, but even I struggled to eat it all, but I had to, as it was so tasty that I didn’t want to miss out on trying everything they had to offer. I went for the chicken breast; which was succulent and juicy, and my wife went for the pork chop, which she could not finish as it was too big; both served with chips and salad. We also had an extra soup and coke for the little one, as that was filling enough for them. You could tell El Chamo have a passion for cooking excellent food; as everything was so full of flavour and cooked to perfection. Whilst talking to the waiter,

I found out that everything was homemade, even down to the bread and mojo, and the house wine is also from Vilaflor, just a few Km’s up the road. They take pride in delivering the best Canarian cuisine in Tenerife. I would HIGHLY recommend you give this a try, as you won’t be disappointed. My rating for “El Chamo”” is 10 out of 10 for friendly staff and great food at a very reasonable price. It’s a little out of the way, but very much worth the drive. The total cost for our 4 course feast, with water and wine, was: 30.49 Euros BARGAIN! If you have had any experiences, good or bad, and would like me to review and give my opinion, or if you own a restaurant and would like a secret visit (you will never know if or when) then please email me, and I will do my best to visit and review, and share our experiences with our readers.

The Municipality of

Santa Cruz de Tenerife An Insightful Guide - Part Two

Welcome back to part two of our trip around Tenerife’s capital, Santa Cruz. The municipality has an area of 150.56 square kilometres and, in January 2005, the population numbered 221 567 inhabitants. The people of Santa Cruz are called “Santacruceros” and also “chicharreros” (which is commonly used for all inhabitants of Tenerife.) Climate It is perhaps because the town has nearly 60 kilometres of coast, together with an abrupt orography, that the weather can be considered to be arid with scarce rains; reaching an average of a little less than 300 millimetres a year. Considered by many as the island of eternal spring, Santa Cruz has an enviable climate, far away from extremes, as average temperatures range from 17 to 18 degrees during its pleasant winter up to 28 and 30 degrees in the summer. Sea water temperatures are very nice for bathers all the year round in any of the very numerous and attractive beaches that Tenerife’s environment is blessed with. This splendid climatic situation is possible thanks to a number of converging factors such as the prevailing winds –the trade winds- , the orography and the cold sea current of the Canary Isles. Visitors may arrive either in December or May, that is, whenever it suits them better, because here there are no intense cold or excessive heat seasons. In addition, Tenerife has a huge variety of landscapes which thus favours the existence of many microclimates that have become one of the main attractions for millions of tourists who seek refuge in these retreats every year. The climate offers unforgettable contrasts. The most impressive one takes place during some of the winter months when beaches keep attracting bathers, and at the same time, one can behold from any point of the coast the white silhouette of snow-capped Mountain Teide, a few kilometres from the coast. History Captain-general Alonso Fernández de Lugo was the founder of the city in 1494 and as early as the 16th century the first traces of roads appeared. However, it was not until the 18th century that the city began to take off; mostly due to the gradual commercial development of its harbour, which consequently resulted in the establishment of the harbour master’s office there in 1723.

Admiral Nelson´s Attack

It should be noted that the harbour soon became one of the most important harbours in the Atlantic Ocean, as the Canary Isles were an unavoidable passage for the fleets bound for the Americas. The city achieved such an incredible rate of development that in the 19th century, under the rule of Ferdinand VII, the capital status of Tenerife was moved from La Laguna to Santa Cruz. A period of distress and bloodshed had been left behind, as during the 18th and 19th centuries the city underwent horrific English and Dutch pirates’ attacks. Admiral Nelson’s attack should be highlighted, as he lost one arm in an attempt to take over the territory, when he was shot by a cannon Tiger bullet, an artefact that is shown today at the Army’s Museum. 20th Century Once the chapter of pirates’ attacks was closed, the port began to recover and expand its horizons. Therefore since the early 20th century the necessary changes began to be made for Tenerife harbour to go along with the economic development that was taking place at that time. In 1907 the Board of Harbour Works was founded, a body that would be responsible for concluding the works that had been previously initiated. History says that in 1911 engineer, Pedro Matos, managed to get permission for an extension of the outer dock, or southern pier, as well as the creation of a new dock or breakwater that is known today as the North Pier, previously proposed by his predecessor, Prudencio Guadalfajara. Constant changes grew stronger at the beginning of the second half of the 20th century. Such plans envisaged the creation of the riverside quays, covering the original coast of Santa Cruz, to gain a bigger mooring line. In the meantime, a special dock for smaller boats emerged as a fishing dock and so it did not interrupt operations at the main quay.

Cultural events Festival de Música Clásica de Canarias Festival de Ópera de Tenerife Tenerife International Film Music Festival Festival de Zarzuela de Canarias Festival Santa Blues de Tenerife Plátano Rock Festival MUMES. Mestizo Music Festival Festival de Salsa del Atlántico Carnaval Día de la Cruz Premios Cadena Dial Nightlife Santa Cruz has not been characterised by an intense night life, in contrast to the nearby university town of La Laguna. Nevertheless, there are several clubs and pubs spread across the city. The best known are in the Parque Marítimo César Manrique, Avenida Tres de Mayo and in Calle La Noria. Moreover, in the Industrial area of Mayorazgo, three new clubs have opened. Recently Calle Antonio Dominguez Alfonso has gained importance as a centre for leisure. After several years of neglect, all the houses in this area have been revamped by the local hotel as tapas, light dinner and drinks bars. This street also hosts the headquarters of several murgas, music groups linked to the Carnival. Popularly known as the Avenida de Anaga is the section of Avenida Francisco la Roche, a classic dinner and drinks meeting place. During the 90s this was the nerve centre of nightlife, the best known local focus of the city. Although many of the bars closed down because of licenses and noise, attempts to regain its former glory have commenced apace.

Carnival! The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is held each February, and attracts people from all over the world. It is considered the secondmost popular and internationallyknown carnival, after the one held in Rio de Janeiro. Partially for this reason, the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is twinned with Rio. In 1980, it was declared a Tourist Festival of International Interest by the Secretary of State for Tourism. The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife aspires to become a World Heritage Site, as a declaration of its status as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO would promote the festival internationally. In 1987, singer Celia Cruz went to the Carnival Chicharrero with Billo’s Caracas Boys; attended by 250,000 people, the concert was registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest gathering of people in an outdoor plaza to attend a concert. The festivities on the streets of Santa Cruz de Tenerife start on the Friday before Carnival with an opening parade, which reaches its height during the night when thousands of people in fancy dresses dance until the early hours of the next day. The party continues night after night until Ash Wednesday. On that day, people of Santa Cruz celebrate the “entierro de la sardina” (burial of the sardine), and with this event the carnival is officially over. However, the party starts up again the following weekend, known as the weekend of the piñata. The festival has two parts: the official Carnival, and the Carnival on the street. The official carnival has more than a hundred groups, including murgas, comparsas, rondallas and other musical groups. The street carnival is more loosely organised, and comprises the people celebrating on the streets. Thousands of people come each day to the streets to participate, most of whom wear a disguise in accordance with Carnival tradition.

Risk Premium in Spain Closes Above 500 Bankia Stock

The debate on Bankia and the 19 billion euros it has asked for from the Government saw the markets head south. Bankia has admitted to the National Commission for Market Values, the body which oversees the Stock Market, that the costs to ensure it solvency could approach ‘extraordinary levels’. The bank has explained to the Commission where the 19 billion euros that it owes has come from. The figures do not take account of any profits at the bank over the next three years, and had they done so, the amount needed to be borrowed now would have been lower. Bankia said that it would be putting more money aside to contingencies, such as extra costs or to ‘adjust the value of certain properties used by the bank’. The Risk Premium was 511 at the close on Monday night, the first time the index has closed above the

Falls Again

Bankia fell by more than 12% on the stock market at the start of the week.

500 level, and although the IBEX 35 opened high it ended the day with losses of 2.17%. Mariano Rajoy has justified the rescue of the bank, ‘The other alternative is to let it go bankrupt’, he said. He noted that the Risk Premium at 500 points is ‘very difficult to finance’ and he called on Europe to resolve the sustainability of the debt. The leader of the opposition, Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, has conditioned his party’s support for the financial reforms on explanations being given on Bankia. He said the

management of Bankia had been ‘disastrous’ with a ‘lack of transparency and that it poses a dilemma.’ He said it was urgent for the Governor of the Bank of Spain to speak to Congress about those who manage Bankia, and the Government’s role. Rubalcaba said, in his opinion, it was necessary to give the public an explanation, to ‘guarantee that the Euro recovers’. He agreed with Rajoy that it is not necessary to call on European rescue funds to save Spanish banks.

Business Briefs

Liberbank, Ibercaja and Caja 3 are to merge to create the seventh largest financial entity in Spain. The new group will have a commercial network of more than 2,700 branches and a workforce of over 11,000. The State Deficit was 2.39% of GDP up to April, eight tenths higher than in 2011. Financial costs increased by 31% over the year and the Government has justified the deviation in the advance of payments to the regional governments and Town Halls so that they can pay their outstanding facturas from suppliers. There has also been an increase in tax rebates this year. Foreign tourists spending fell in Spain in April by 4.3%, the first reduction in 13 months. The numbers for the first four months of the year remain positive with spending up 3.5%. Up to April the average daily spend was up 13.5% at 108 euros. Money spent on hotel accommodation, 63% of the total, was up 4% to April. The Norwegians are those to spend the most, at 125 euros per day on average. The Bank of Spain has said it expects the economy to continue to fall in the second quarter of the year and say they think that the weakness of the labour market will continue. Indicators on consumer spending and investments and capital goods have shown a slight improvement. Banco Popular has admitted that it is in talks to sell a ‘majority percentage’ of its online bank. They say the sale is inside the measures destined to comply with the financial reform. The Government is to strengthen arms exports, with the Ministry of Defence mediating in the deals between foreign countries, who purchase arms in Spain, and the companies. The cabinet have come up with ‘a new mechanism of export support’ which will allow a more active role from the Ministry for Defence in the management of export programs. Consumer spending collapsed in April, down 11.3% on last year, and now reaching 22 consecutive months heading south. It’s the largest reduction since February 2009. Employment in shops fell in all regions of the country with the exception of La Rioja. Swiss pharmaceutical company ROCHE has said it is to limit its credit to 11 Spanish hospitals, but it has backed down from cutting the service. The company wants to avoid any increase in bad debt. The hospitals affected are three in the Valencia region, three others in Andalucía and Castilla y León and two in Castilla-La Mancha. The Chairman of Repsol, Antonio Brufau, has said that the Repsol dividend is ‘unsustainable’. The company has reduced the part of the profits dedicate to return to shareholders and hopes to double its profits in the next four years by investing 19 billion euros. Brufau has written a letter to the Argentinean President, Kirchner, regarding YPF and says that she has not answered him. Observers say that Repsol are cutting their dividends in an attempt to maintain their classification.

The current financial director of Bancaja, now part of the Bankia matrix, ex Director General of the bank and of the Bank of Valencia, Aurelio Izquierdo, has the right to a retirement pension of 13.8 million euros. That compares to the ex-President of Bankia, Rodrigo Rato, earning 2.4 million, and the ex-Vicepresident, José Luis Olivas, 1.7 million euros. Deloitte warned Bankia back in October that their accounts were not drawn up correctly with the underplaying of the amount of toxic assets. The ratings agency refused to sign the accounts at the end of 2011, speeding up the nationalisation process. A judge has taken the first step, in Madrid Instruction Court 21, to investigate, Miguel Ángel Fernández Ordóñez who

is the Governor of the Bank of Spain, and two ex-Chairmen of Bankia, Rodrigo Rato and Miguel Blesa for their involvement in Bankia. The judge has started action after a denuncia by Manos Limpias, considering that ‘a penal infraction’ could exist. Bankia announced that it ended 2011 with losses of 2.979 billion euros, and now the bad debts have been revealed to be far worse. Manos Limpias has accused Fernández Ordóñez of not

correctly supervising the Caja Castilla La Mancha and the Caja de Ahorros del Mediterráneo, which both had to be intervened in by the Bank of Spain before they went bankrupt. El Mundo reports that the cabinet will approve ‘hispabonos’ and these will be used to rescue the regional administrations. The cabinet estimates that the regions need about 17 billion euros between now and the end of the year to cover their needs.

Jaguar Land Rover Report Higher Profits and Record Sales Jaguar Land Rover, the Indian-owned now exports 80% of its production. Sales car manufacturer, has reported a 34% rise in profits after sales hit a record high. In 2011-2012 the group made pre-tax profits of £1.5bn, up from £1.12bn the year before. Retail sales were up 27% to 305,859 units, with parent, Tata Motors, attributing the significant increase to strong demand from China and other emerging markets. Chinese sales jumped 76% to 50,994. The company’s new Range Rover Evoque, a compact 4x4, has proved particularly popular, the company said. Pre-tax profits for the quarter ended 31st March were £530m, up from £299m for the same quarter last year. Revenues were up 51.5% at £4.14bn. Although the UK remains Jaguar Land Rover’s biggest market, with retail sales of 60,022, up 3.2%, the group

to India rose 153.3% to 2,138, while sales to Brazil rose 62.2% to 9,027, as buyers in emerging markets warmed to the luxury brand. Commenting on the results, Ralf Speth, JLR chief executive, said: “Today’s announcement... is a positive reflection of the continued level of consumer confidence in both of our brands. These record earnings, driven by strong product demand and operating efficiencies, give JLR the financial impetus to sustain its ongoing investment programme.” In March, the luxury car maker announced a joint venture agreement with Chinese manufacturer, Chery Automobile, to build vehicles for the Chinese market, but the agreement has yet to receive regulatory approval from the Chinese authorities.

Charles Taylor Gets 50 P o l i c e S a y K i l l e r Years for War Crimes B r eivi k Acted Al one

Former Liberian president Charles Taylor, the first African leader to be convicted of war crimes, has been jailed for 50 years. The 64-year-old is likely to serve his term in the UK, as Britain is the only country to say it is willing to take him in. Taylor was found guilty last month of aiding and arming rebels who killed and mutilated thousands in neighbouring Sierra Leone during a brutal civil war which went on for more than a decade. In the UN-backed war crimes court near The Hague, Judge Richard Lussick said there was no legal precedent by which to determine a sentence, but the term was intended to reflect Taylor’s position of authority. “He was found responsible for aiding and abetting some of the most heinous and brutal crimes in recorded history,” he said, reading out the sentencing. “Leadership must be carried out by example by the prosecution of crimes not the commission of crimes.” He said the sentence is intended to “underscore the gravity it attached to the betrayal of public trust.” The prosecution demanded an 80-year sentence in one of Britain’s maximum

Police have told the trial of mass killer Anders Behring Breivik they are confident he acted alone when he carried out his terror attacks. Three officers said they found no proof of anyone else being involved in Breivik’s plans or helping him with the bombing in Oslo and the shooting spree at a youth camp on Utoya island. Chief investigator Kenneth Wilberg said police were sure of their findings and they found no evidence of a right-wing Knights Templar network with aims to deport Muslims from Europe. Breivik claimed to belong to the alleged group, which he said was established in London in 2002 to protect Europe from multiculturalism and a pending “Muslim invasion”. But Mr Wilberg said: “Police have not found evidence that the Knights Templar exists in the shape suggested by the accused.” The trial is also expected to hear about how he raised funds to carry out his attacks. The 33-year-old has admitted responsibility for the bomb blast that killed eight people in the Norwegian capital and shooting dead 69 people on Utoya last July. But he has

security jails, but Taylor appealed for a shorter sentence. Both sides are expected to appeal. Reacting from Sierra Leone, deputy minister of information Sheka Tarawalie said: “Today the people of Sierra Leone, the victims, and ordinary observers inside and outside the country would believe that some kind of justice has been done.” Taylor is the first head of state to be convicted by an international tribunal since

the Nazi trials at Nuremberg, after he became notorious for feeding the illicit trade in blood or conflict diamonds. Taylor was convicted of 11 counts of murder, rape, conscripting child soldiers and sexual slavery during the civil war in Sierra Leone. More than 120,000 people were killed. The trial, which saw model Naomi Campbell testify she had received diamonds from Taylor at a dinner hosted by Nelson Mandela, finished in March 2011.

Severed Foot Sent To Canada Political Party HQ

A severed human foot has been posted to the headquarters of Canada’s Conservative party and another body part was discovered when police intercepted a second suspicious package. Officers were called shortly after a receptionist opened a blood-soaked box at the headquarters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s party. A hazardousmaterial unit was called and when the package was opened a severed foot was found inside. Police said the package was addressed to the Conservative Party of Canada and not to a specific person. Mr Harper’s office is not located at the party

headquarters. Just hours later Ottawa police said they intercepted a second suspicious package containing another human body part. Police released no other details about the second find, and said the major crime section continues to investigate. Ottawa police are now

consulting with officers in Montreal after they discovered a severed torso in a suitcase. Conservative Parliament member Brad Trost said posting the foot was probably someone’s “sick idea”. “I don’t think any of us are thinking this necessarily has anything to with politics,” he said.

denied criminal guilt, saying the victims had betrayed their country by embracing immigration. His mental state is the key issue to be resolved during the trial in Oslo. If found guilty and criminally sane, he would face 21 years in prison, though he could be held longer if deemed dangerous to society. If declared insane, he would be sent to a psychiatric facility. At the trial on Tuesday (29th May), Breivik’s best friends said they thought he was either depressed or gay when he stopped seeing them in 2006 - five years before he killed 77 people.

Bali Drugs Arrest: UK Woman Claims ‘Fit-Up’

A British woman facing the death penalty after being arrested over a £1.6m cocaine haul has pleaded for help from behind bars in an Indonesian jail. Rachel Dougall claims she was the victim of a “fit-up” after she was detained by police in Bali following the arrest of British housewife Lindsay Sandiford. Mrs Sandiford, 55, was allegedly caught with 4.8kg of the drug stuffed in the lining of a suitcase as she arrived on the Indonesian island. She agreed to take part in a sting operation in which police swooped on four other suspects after her arrest last week. The Foreign Office confirmed that the suspects being held include Ms Dougall and fellow British nationals Julian Ponder and Paul Beales. An Indian man was also arrested. Ms Dougall and Mr Ponder, who are believed to be partners with a young daughter, were filmed as they were taken by police for questioning. Ms Dougall

later shouted through the bars of her cell at Bali police headquarters: “It’s a fit-up, get us a decent lawyer.” Customs officials told ITV News that Mrs Sandiford may be spared the death sentence because she helped to catch three other members of the smuggling operation, who could face a firing squad. Mrs Sandiford, originally from Redcar, Teesside, is thought to have told police she only agreed to make the smuggling trip because her children in England were being threatened. She was paraded at a press

conference alongside the drugs wearing an orange prison T-shirt and hiding her face from cameras. Masked, armed officers in Kuta, a town on the holiday island, flanked her as she was brought into the room and a customs official cut open packages wrapped in brown tape to reveal a white powder. Another 68g of cocaine, 280g of powdered ecstasy and a small amount of hashish were also seized following the arrest of the other gang members at separate locations in Bali, officials said.

Assange Loses Extradition Appeal

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has lost his UK Supreme Court fight against extradition to Sweden to face accusations of sex offences. Lord Phillips, the court’s president said he had lost by a majority of five justices to two. The court ruled the extradition request had been “lawfully made”. However, Mr Assange’s lawyers have been given 14 days to consider challenging the ruling, saying it could have been reached unfairly. Dinah Rose QC, for Mr Assange, said the Supreme Court’s decision could have been made on legal points not argued during the appeal - and she needed time to consider asking the court to reopen the case. Mr Assange, who has been on conditional bail in the UK, did not attend the hearing in central London. His lawyer later told reporters he had been “stuck in traffic”. The 40-year-old Australian is accused of raping one woman and “sexually molesting and coercing” another in Stockholm in August 2010, but he claims the allegations against him are politically motivated. Mr Assange’s lawyers had asked the court to block

his removal, arguing that a European arrest warrant issued against him was “invalid and unenforceable”. The key legal question for the seven judges was whether the prosecutor who issued the arrest warrant had the “judicial authority” to do so under the 2003 Extradition Act. Lord Phillips said five of the justices agreed the warrant had been lawful because the Swedish prosecutor behind the warrant could be considered a proper “judicial authority” even if they were not specifically mentioned in legislation or international agreements. This point of law had not been simple to resolve, said Lord Phillips, and two of the justices, Lady Hale and Lord Mance, had disagreed with the decision. But Ms Rose immediately indicated she could challenge the judgement saying that it relied on a 1969 convention relating to how treaties should be implemented. She said this convention had not been raised during the hearing. In a statement, the Supreme Court said: “Following this morning’s judgment by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in Assange v The Swedish Prosecution Authority, Ms Rose has

indicated that she may make an application to reopen the court’s decision. Ms Rose suggested that the majority of the court appear to have based their decision on the interpretation of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, on which no argument was heard and no opportunity of making submission was given. The Supreme Court has granted Ms Rose 14 days to make such an application. If she decides to do so, the justices will then decide

whether to re-open the appeal and accept further submissions either verbally through a further hearing, or on paper on the matter.” The decision to stay the extradition order means that it cannot become active until 13th June, but it would be further delayed were there to be additional submissions. Mr Assange’s Wikileaks website published material from leaked diplomatic cables embarrassing several governments.

A Pakistani doctor was jailed last week for alleged links to a banned militant group - not for helping the CIA to track down Osama Bin Laden, the text of the trial court’s judgement shows. It was originally thought that Shakil Afridi had been imprisoned for running a fake vaccination programme to gather information for US intelligence. Dr Afridi was jailed for 33 years by the tribal court in a closed hearing. His family have said the treason charges against him are baseless. The text of the judgement - released on Wednesday 30th, shows that Dr Afridi was convicted for providing support and medical treatment to members of the militant group, Lashkare-Islam. The judgement says there is also evidence that he was involved with foreign intelligence agencies, and this should now be considered by other courts. Dr Afridi was tried for treason in a controversial hearing behind closed doors

Twist In ‘Bin Laden Doctor’ Case

from Bin Laden or any family members was ever obtained, or whether the doctor even knew the identity of the target. His conviction has added to strains in USPakistani relations, already under pressure because of continuing US drone strikes in Pakistan and because of Islamabad’s refusal to reopen overland Nato supply routes through Pakistan to Afghanistan. The routes were shut down in November since a US airstrike killed 24 Pakistani soldiers on the Afghan border. Meanwhile, Dr Afridi’s brother, Jamil, has said that he is concerned for his safety and the safety of his brother. He said government officials had previously warned relatives to keep quiet because it could endanger Dr Afridi’s life. Bin Laden was killed by US forces in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in May 2011. His presence in Pakistan embarrassed Islamabad, which argued that the covert US operation was a violation of its sovereignty.

under Pakistan’s tribal justice system. Whatever the official reason for his conviction, many in Pakistan will believe that Dr Afridi was jailed for helping the CIA locate Osama Bin Laden. There is some speculation that Wednesday’s release of the judgment - which will almost certainly be the subject of a legal appeal by Dr Afridi’s

lawyers - may have been done under pressure from Washington. On Friday a US Senate panel cut $33m (£21m) in aid to Pakistan in response to the jailing - $1m for every year of his sentence. US officials say Dr Afridi was instrumental in tracking down the al-Qaeda leader and have called for his release. It is not clear if any DNA

For Jubilee Exodus

Up to 2 million people are planning to flee Britain over the diamond jubilee weekend and the half-term holiday week, giving airport officials their biggest test before the Olympics. Half that number is expected to leave from Heathrow with the rest going from other airports or across the Channel, according to the Association of British Travel Agents. Friday saw a near-record 115,000 jet off from Heathrow, just short of the number of departures on 31st July last year – the busiest day in the airport’s history. The most popular destinations are New York, Dublin, Dubai, Amsterdam and Chicago. But it’s not

all one way as the expected 780,000 visitors will offer an Olympic dry run to the Border Force, which has been criticised over long delays processing arrivals. Passengers will be greeted at Heathrow by a giant flag showing the Queen’s profile which has been painted on 540sqm of the airfield – the equivalent of 15 doubledecker buses laid on their side. Red carpets have been laid, union and diamond jubilee flags will be handed to arriving passengers and the Salvation Army band will play classic British music. Heathrow’s commercial director John Holland-Kaye said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome visitors celebrating this momentous national occasion.’

Students Cheer As College Goes Up In Smoke

Students at Dalian University of Technology ignored a blaze at their college to take one of the best graduation snaps on record, throwing their mortarboards in the air as the building behind them was engulfed in flames.

The graduates from Liaoning province, northern China, were forced to flee when a fire broke out in a storage warehouse near their dormitory. They refused to let the incident rain, or in this case, blaze on their parade however, stopping in the grounds to take a photo of themselves throwing their caps in the air as smoke billowed from the warehouse behind them. The snap was posted online by a mischievous student and quickly went viral, accompanied with the caption: ‘It’s too big of a coincidence to see the university on fire today, as it’s also graduation day. The students are filled with love in seeing the school burn.’ All students were evacuated safely to a nearby hotel and the fire was put out. An irate college official said: ‘Our students shouldn’t be celebrating destruction.’

High Court Rejects Sinn Féin Live Register Steady At 14.3% Referendum Legal Challenge

The High Court has rejected an application by a Sinn Féin TD aimed at having the Referendum Commission withdraw remarks it made earlier this month concerning Ireland’s veto over the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). Pearse Doherty’s action centred on a statement made by the commission chairman, Mr Justice Kevin Feeney, over whether Ireland has a veto over the establishment of the ESM. Mr Doherty brought proceedings, arising out of comments made by Mr Justice Feeney on 3rd May by stating in response to a question on whether Ireland could veto the ratification of the amendment to Article 136 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, that Ireland has “already agreed to the establishment of the ESM”. The statement added it was clear that a veto could have been exercised but Ireland has already agreed to the establishment of the ESM. Mr Justice Gerard Hogan said the application must stand refused. He said if one subjected the two referendum commission statements to highly detailed scrutiny there may perhaps have been certain nuanced differences. “But I’m not convinced any of

Gardaí and PSNI Raid 140 Brothels

Gardaí and the PSNI have carried out the biggest ever crackdown against the vice trade across the island of Ireland, raiding 140 brothels and related properties in a day-long operation targeting Irish and foreign prostitution syndicates. Some 120 of the raids were carried out in the Republic, mostly targeting major urban centres but including searches in almost every county in the country. Three people were arrested by Gardaí, two women in their 20s and a man in his 40s. The man was later released without charge. The women remain in custody. Five people were arrested in the North. The cross-border operation – run in the Republic under the anti-vice Operation Quest – was spearheaded by the Garda’s Organised Crime Unit. It is unprecedented in scale. The brothels were being operated from apartments, houses and in some cases hotels. Some of the gangs specialised in offering sex for sale during lunchtime. There were raids in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Donegal and Meath, as well as many other counties. The gangs targeted are spearheaded by leading criminals

from the Republic and the North, though gang leaders from Eastern Europe and Africa are also involved. Sources said while many of the women working in the brothels were living in the North or the Republic legally, others had been trafficked in and had been sold between gangs. The raids began before first light on Tuesday. A large amount of documentation, cash, mobile phones and computers was also seized. Gardaí said the low number of arrests underlined that the women found in the raided brothels were not the focus of the operation. The searches followed months of planning by all of the main specialist Garda units and were informed by intelligence gathered in every Garda division across the country. As well as the Organised Crime Unit leading the investigation, the searches involved members of the Criminal Assets Bureau, National Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Garda National Immigration Bureau. The Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation is also involved in investigating the gangs’ international money-laundering operations.

The number of people signing on the Live Register increased marginally for the second straight month in May, but the standardised unemployment rate held steady at 14.3 per cent. Figures from the Central Statistics Office show that, on a seasonally adjusted basis, 436,700 people were claiming jobseekers’ benefits and allowances in May, some 7,700 fewer than in the same month last year. The number of people signing on increased by 200 in May on a seasonally adjusted basis. This followed a similar rise in April. The number of long-term claimants – those in receipt of benefits for more than one year – increased by 7 per cent to 188,729 in the year to May. The number of women in the long-term category increased by 13.7 per cent (6,459) in that period, and the number of men rose by 4.6 per cent (5,936). The data suggest that young people are continuing to emigrate or return to education, with the number of people aged under 25 claiming benefits falling by 10.3

per cent in the year to May. The percentage of those aged under 25 signing on the Live Register stood at 16.8 per cent at the end of May, down from 18.4 per cent a year earlier and 19.6 per cent in May 2010. The number of casual and part-time workers claiming benefits has risen by 3.7 per cent (3,131) since May of last year to 88,064, with the increase largely accounted for by male workers (5.7 per cent). Foreign nationals accounted for 17.7 per cent (76,783) of the number on the Live Register, a small increase from the figure recorded one year earlier (17.5 per cent).

McAreavey Accused ‘Confession’ Heard

A detailed confession statement given to police by one of two men accused of murdering honeymooner Michaela McAreavey was read at his trial in Mauritius on Wednesday, 30th May. In the statement, Avinash Treebhoowoon (31) admitted his part in killing the Co Tyrone woman in her hotel room at the island’s luxury Legends Hotel last January. The confession statement made by the accused three days after the murder was read to a packed court in Port Louis by a senior detective who interviewed him at the time. Treebhoowoon told Chief Inspector Luciano Gerard that Mrs McAreavey had disturbed him and his coaccused Sandip Moneea (42), as they were burgling the room of her and her husband John, the court heard. Mr Gerard read the accused’s statement to the jury. In it, Mr Treebhoowoon said: “As soon as she entered she saw the wallet in my hand. At that time I was still near the dressing table and she was about a metre away from me. She shouted and told me ‘what are

Brendan McAreavey, (right) father of John McAreavey, and John’s sister Claire leave the Supreme court in Port Louis, Mauritius

you doing, what are you searching’... She seemed angry. I got scared and at that time Sandip was still in the bathroom. The woman came closer to me. I tried to go in the direction of the door but she stopped me. Then with my right hand I pushed her and she fell on her back. I think at that time she must have seen Sandip. She was screaming and I told Sandip, ‘Let’s stop her from screaming’. At the time she was on the floor she was not injured. I grabbed her feet with my two arms and Sandip came next to her and sat and with one hand, left or right, I cannot remember, pressed on her neck to stop her from screaming, and with the other hand he pressed on her shoulders. He continued to press

for a minute at the neck. While he was pressing she was struggling and he continued to press until she lost consciousness. She was breathing but she couldn’t talk.” The defendant then told police his co-accused said they had to kill her, so she could not identify them. He told officers that they carried her into the bathroom, dumped her in the bath, turned on the water and attempted to wash fingerprints off her. They then left the room and went and hid. Mr Treebhoowoon has subsequently claimed the admission was forced out of him by police brutality. He and Mr Moneea both deny murdering the 27-year-old teacher from Co Tyrone.

Advice Stall Set Up For Those Going To Euro 2012

A Polish woman has set up a stall at a country market to advise Irish fans what to do and what to expect at Euro 2012. Agatha Szavek came up with the idea because she wanted to give something back after receiving a warm welcome since she arrived in Ireland in 2004. Ms Szavek (36), who lives in Co Donegal, set up the stand at the Letterkenny Community Centre over the weekend.

“We realise there are a lot of people travelling there but there is only a small knowledge of what it is like there. This is payback for the lovely hospitality we got from the Donegal community.

Ms Szavek, who has two children, has contacted the Polish embassy, which has given her lots of advice leaflets for fans. The Polish shop where she works in Letterkenny,

Your Delicatessen, has also helped her with the stall. Ms Szavek has also compiled a small translation leaflet of phrases which she thinks the Irish fans will use at the soccer finals. “My daughter Natalie (16) was born in Poland and will be cheering for Poland but my son Marcel (3) was born in Ireland and will be cheering on Robbie Keane. I’m stuck in the middle,” Ms Szavek says.

Dublin Team in Motor Neuron Breakthrough

Researchers at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland have discovered how the body protects itself against the onset of motor neuron disease. The discovery immediately opens up new treatment options to counter this deadly disease. Follow-up research has already shown that symptoms can be reduced and life expectancy can be increased in mice that develop motor neuron disease, said Prof Jochen Prehn, who leads the research at the college. “It is significantly better than the best current treatment,” said Prof Prehn of the department of physiology and medical physics. “You can significantly delay the onslaught of the symptoms and improve survival.” The disease is a progressive and fatal degenerative disease where the nerve cells that carry information between muscles and the brain – motor neurons – begin to die. Researchers do not know why this happens, but five years ago Irish geneticists Prof Orla Hardiman and Prof Andrew Green discovered a mutated gene that seemed to be associated with motor neuron disease. The gene produced a protein called angiogenin. Prof Prehn’s group subsequently focused on angiogenin and became the first to explain how the protein was involved in protecting motor neurons from becoming damaged. They published their research in the current issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Prof Prehn described the work related to angiogenin as a “completely Irish” success given the initial discovery and later work happened here. Joint first authors on the study Alexandra Skorupa and Matthew King were based at the college, as was Áine Behan, who was also involved in the research and publication. If motor neurons break down in a healthy individual, angiogenin is released. It acts like an instant “survival factor”, Prof Prehn said. “The protein machinery is

Body of DCU Student Due In Ireland

The body of Irishwoman Nicola Furlong arrived back in Dublin on Thursday, as Japanese police continue their investigation into her death. Two US men are being held on suspicion of drugging and strangling the DCU exchange student in an upmarket Tokyo hotel last week. Prosecutors are due to determine, possibly this week, whether murder charges can be brought. Police have identified one of the men as a 23-year-old professional hip-hop dancer from Los Angeles who was on assignment in Japan. The other suspect, who is 19, cannot be named because he is considered a minor in Japan. They have initially been charged with quasi-forcible indecency, a Japanese legal term used to describe groping and sexual assault. Tokyo police say they suspect Ms Furlong and her friend were plied with

alcohol or drugs before being raped. Police may re-arrest the men on more serious charges once they receive full autopsy and toxicology reports. “The injuries to Ms Furlong’s neck suggest suffocation through pressure on the neck, or strangulation,” said a police spokesperson. A family member of the second unnamed

Irish woman is in Tokyo to accompany her back to Ireland for Ms Furlong’s funeral in the small community of Curracloe. Co Wexford where she grew up. Family and friends of both have appealed for privacy amid intense media interest. Ms. Furlong’s death has been widely covered in the Japanese media and by the main US TV networks.

Bank of Ireland Refunds €1 Million in Credit Card Insurance

turned on. It helps the surrounding tissue to regenerate or grow new blood vessels or deliver more energy.” Several factors are released by this machinery, helping to keep the motor neurons healthy so they can continue to support muscle control. Angiogenin in those who develop motor neuron disease is absent or might not work properly. The prominent cosmologist Prof Stephen Hawking has suffered this loss of motor neurons, and popular RTÉ sports and racing commentator Colm Murray is also struggling with the disease. Prof Prehn’s group were the first to reveal how angiogenin works to protect the neurons. But this also threw up possibilities for new kinds of treatments. The researchers plan to study the various protective factors released by the neurons to better understand how they help neighbouring cells, Prof Prehn said. Funding has come from Enterprise Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland and the Thierry Latran Foundation. There are about 300 people living with motor neuron disease in Ireland at any given time, and on average one person is diagnosed every four days.

Bank of Ireland has refunded 1 million Euros to more than 1,500 customers after an internal review discovered they had taken out credit card insurance on which they could not make a claim. The payment comes to an average of 660 Euros per customer. The issue was revealed by RTÉ after Bank of Ireland customers contacted the station’s Consumer Show. The product, Payment Protection Insurance (PPI), covers repayments on loans, mortgages and credit cards if people fall ill or lose their jobs. It has emerged that some people were

sold the insurance even though they had no income and could not make a claim. The bank says it has now changed its systems to ensure only those entitled to take out the insurance can buy it. In a statement, the bank confirmed it had issued refunds to 1,514 credit card PPI customers. It said that it was the bank’s policy to constantly check and issue refunds of fair value. The results of a Central Bank review of 276,000 PPI policies sold in 2008 and 2009 is due out at the end of this year. Last month AIB said it was to refund over 3.1m Euros in payment protection insurance premiums to 11,500 customers.

Officers from Revenue’s Customs Service have seized in the region of 5.3 million contraband cigarettes at Dublin Port. The haul has an estimated retail value of 2 million Euros, with a potential loss to the exchequer of 1.8 million Euros. The Raquel, Pride, Jim and Capital brand cigarettes were concealed in a shipment of industrial paper reels that arrived at Dublin Port from Rotterdam. They were discovered by Revenue officers with a mobile scanner. A UK-registered commercial vehicle and trailer were seized and the driver was interviewed. Investigations are continuing nationally and internationally.

This latest haul brings the total number of cigarettes seized by Customs to date this year to 55.7 million, with an estimated retail value of 24 million Euros.

Volvo’s Self-Drive ‘Convoy’ Blaze At Qatar Hits The Spanish Motorway Shopping Centre

A convoy of self-driven cars has completed a 200km (125-mile) journey on a Spanish motorway, in the first public test of such vehicles. The cars were wirelessly linked to each other and “mimicked” a lead vehicle, driven by a professional driver. The so-called road train has been developed by Volvo. The firm is confident that they will be widely available in future. The project aims to herald a new age of relaxed driving. According to Volvo, drivers “can now work on their laptops, read a book or sit back and enjoy a relaxed lunch” while driving. The road train test was carried out as part of a European Commission research project known as Sartre Safe Road Trains for the Environment. The convoy comprised three cars and one lorry. “Driving among other road-users is a great milestone in our project. It was truly thrilling,” says Linda Wahlstroem, project manager for the Sartre project at Volvo Car Corporation “We covered 200km in one day and the test turned out well. We’re really delighted,” she added. The cars are fitted with special features such as cameras, radar and laser sensors - allowing the vehicle to monitor the lead vehicle and also other vehicles in their immediate vicinity.

Kills 4 Spaniards

A fire at a shopping centre in the Qatari capital Doha has killed at least 19 people, local officials have said. The interior ministry said 13 of the victims at the Villaggio centre were children. Four of them were Spanish nationals, three from New Zealand and one child was French.

Using wireless communication, the vehicles in the platoon “mimic” the lead vehicle using autonomous control - accelerating, braking and turning in exactly the same way as the leader. The vehicles drove at 85kph (52mph) with the gap between each vehicle just 6m (19ft). “People think that autonomous driving is science fiction, but the fact is that the technology is already here. From the purely conceptual viewpoint, it works fine and road train will be around in one form or another in the future,” says Ms Wahlstroem. “We’ve focused really hard on changing as little as possible in existing systems. Everything should function without any infrastructure changes to the roads or expensive additional components in the cars.

Spain and UK Call For Definitive Gibraltar Fishing Talks

Spanish and British officials have encouraged fishermen from La Línea to continue their dialogue with Gibraltar authorities over fishing rights in areas claimed by the British territory. Spanish Foreign Minister ,José Manuel GarcíaMargallo, met with his British counterpart William Hague in London on Tuesday(29th), where both said they agreed that the Gibraltar issue shouldn’t tarnish bilateral relations. “The governments of Spain and the United Kingdom urge the parties concerned – that is to say, the government of Gibraltar and the fishermen of La Línea

and Algeciras – to reach a satisfactory agreement and allow our boats to work where they have always been able to work,” García-Margallo said after the meeting, which took place in Carlton Gardens, an official residence of the Foreign Office near Buckingham Palace. For his part, Hague described the dispute as a “local” issue. Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said legislation prohibits fishing boats from using the trawling method in the area, adding that the traditional long-line method is acceptable. Several tense moments were seen last week when fishermen went out to trawl in waters near the territory.

Apart from the software developed as part of the project, it is really only the wireless network installed between the cars that set them apart from other cars available in showrooms today.” The three-year Sartre project has been under way since 2009. Other partners include UK car technology firm Ricardo UK, Tecnalia Research & Innovation of Spain, Institut fur Kraftfahrzeuge Aachen (IKA) of Germany and the Technical Research Institute of Sweden. All told, the vehicles in the project have covered about 10,000km on test circuits. The eventual aim of the project is to have lots of cars “slaved” to a lead vehicle and travelling at high speed along specific routes on motorways.

CGPJ Bombarded With Demands For Chief Justice To Step Down Four members of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) will again demand that Supreme Court Chief Justice, Carlos Dívar, give a public explanation for the 20 weekend trips he took to Marbella, which were paid for in part with public funds. The pressure on Dívar to resign continues to grow, with more than 1,300 people having sent requests to the CGPJ demanding that the chief justice step down. Dívar, 70, has refused to give up his positions as the head of the top court and president of the CGPJ after he was accused by a council member of using 13,000 euros from judiciary funds to pay for a series of extended weekend jaunts to Puerto Banús, between 2008 and March of this year. A call for him to resign didn’t muster enough votes during the CGPJ’s

last meeting, but the four council members who voted against Dívar - including José Manuel Gómez Benítez, who filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office - say they will call on the chief justice to step aside once more. Dívar claims he was on official business, and separated his personal expenses from the costs he billed to the judiciary. The Change.org website alone has collected 3,153 signatures demanding his resignation.

The cause of the fire, believed to have started in the centre’s nursery, is being investigated. The Villaggio is a popular shopping centre in the small Gulf state. The centre, which opened in 2006, has a cinema, a hotel and a Venice-styled theme park. The blaze started at about 11:00 local time (08:00 GMT) on Monday (28th), Qatari Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser al-Thani said. It is believed to have started at the centre’s Gympanzee nursery, and fire-fighters reportedly had to break through the roof to get to trapped children when a staircase collapsed. But the firefighters were too late to save seven young girls and six boys who died with four of their teachers, reports say. Four of the children who died were Spanish, foreign ministry officials in Madrid said, without giving further details. In Paris, the minister in charge of French expatriates, Yamina Benguigui, said that a three-year-old French child died in the blaze. New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key later confirmed that three of the dead children were New Zealanders, adding that they were believed to be triplets, the New Zealand Herald newspaper reports. Two civil defence officials said to be fire-fighters - were also among the victims, the interior ministry said. All the victims died of asphyxiation, reports say. As plumes of smoke began to rise from the centre, most shoppers were unaware anything was wrong. One was told to continue eating a meal; another emerged from a shop’s dressing room to find all the staff had left. Meanwhile, young men posed for pictures in the VIP area, which was thick with smoke. Gradually, an evacuation began. Some shoppers heard alarms, but others heard nothing, running as they

saw smoke spreading down hallways. Officials say some sprinklers and alarms failed to work while floor plans did not have emergency exits correctly marked. A group of children and their teachers in the mall’s nursery, Gympanzee, were unable to get out. Officials say firefighters were initially unaware there was a nursery inside. As soon as they realised, they went in to try to save them. Two firemen died trying to rescue the children. “We tried our best, but when we got there, the children were trapped inside. We are very sorry for what happened. We tried as much as we could to save these people,” Sheikh Abdullah told reporters. Black smoke billowing from the centre and also a lack of floor plans are believed to have hindered the rescue operation. Medics were treating the injured after police evacuated the complex. “There don’t seem to have been any fire alarms or sprinklers at the mall,” a relative of one of the victims told Reuters. One teacher said: “I was in Pizza Express in the mall... with 17 children, aged three to four. We were making pizzas as part of a school trip. The first we knew of the fire was when we saw the smoke, there were fire alarms going off in the building, but they were barely audible. They were not sounding in the individual shops, they were so quiet. We were so lucky to be near the exit. “The idea that the emergency services turned up a minute after the call about the fire was nonsense - they arrived after we were all safely outside and the fire was well under way,” Ms Amanda said. Reports say that the evacuation was very chaotic and there is some criticism of the way the incident was handled by the emergency services. The fire was later extinguished.

Spain Requests Extradition Spain’s Risk of Suspected ETA Leader P r e m i u m Spanish prosecutors on Monday (28th) have formally requested the extradition of the man who they believe is ETA’s current leader, Oroitz Gurruchaga Gogorza, arrested by authorities in France. The High Court has three open cases against Gurruchaga — two for membership of the illegal Basque terrorist group and another judicial investigation for street violence, known as kale borroka. Prosecutors are also seeking the extradition of Xabier Aramburu Sagarminga, believed to be Gurruchaga’s top lieutenant, who was captured with him after they were stopped by French law enforcement authorities near Cauna, south-western France, on Sunday. They were both armed and traveling in a stolen car. High Court Judge, Fernando

Oroitz Gurruchaga Gogorza (left) and Xabier Aramburu Sagarminga

Grande-Marlaska, ordered the arrest of Gurruchaga in January 2009 on the charge that he belonged to the ETA terrorist group. It is believed that he fled to France the previous year after Spanish police had arrested some 10 other alleged ETA members on charges that they were engaging in street violence. Gurruchaga is thought to have been a member of Segi — ETA’s youth group which organised street violence in

Rentería, Gipuzkoa over the last decade. The arrests come days before France’s new interior minister, the Catalan-born Manuel Valls, is expected to arrive in Madrid to meet for the first time with his Spanish counterpart, Jorge Fernández Díaz. With the arrests of Gurruchaga and Aramburu, law enforcement authorities have captured 15 ETA members since 20th

October, when the terrorist group announced a formal cease in hostilities. The 30-year-old Gurruchaga is thought to have taken over as military chief of the terrorist group following the capture of Mikel Kabikoitz Carrera, alias “Ata,” on 20th May, 2011. Authorities say that he was responsible for recruiting new ETA members. Gurruchaga’s brother, Egoitz, died in September 2002 when an explosive device that he was carrying went off in Bilbao. In December 2008, Gurruchaga announced in the newspaper Gara that he, along with another friend, was joining ETA because the pressure by law enforcement authorities had “pushed” him to make this decision. Aramburu, 31, is wanted for a car bombing that took place in 2008 in Ondarroa, in Bizkaia in which several people were injured.

Spain Expels Syrian Ambassador

Spain has expelled the Syrian ambassador, Hussam Edin Aala, in response to the massacre of 108 people carried out by government forces in the Houla region of Syria on Friday, 25th. The minister for Foreign Affairs announced the expulsion in a coordinated move with other world governments, including France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Canada and Australia, after Western leaders all expressed their horror at Friday’s killings. Eye-witnesses say that progovernment shabiha militia entered homes and opened fire indiscriminately. UN observers say many of the dead had been killed by either close-range gunfire or knife attacks. UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said initial investigations suggested that most of those killed in the village of Taldou, near Houla, had been summarily executed. He said 49 children and 34 women were among the victims. Many of the survivors say they either hid or played dead. Syrian leaders insist that the massacre was the work of “terrorists”, aiming to derail

the peace process and provoke intervention by Western powers. Ahead of his meeting with President Assad, UN-Arab envoy Kofi Annan called the massacre “an appalling moment with profound consequences”. The French government said “the murderous folly” of the Damascus regime threatened regional security, and announced it was

expelling the Syrian ambassador in Paris. The Syrian charge d’affaires in London had been given seven days to leave the country. Spain’s Foreign Minister, José Manuel García-Margallo, confirmed the expulsion of the Syrian ambassador to Spain, describing the attack by Syrian government forces as an “atrocity”.

At New High

Amid an array of confusing messages on the merits of Bankia’s bailout plan, which caused Spain’s risk premium to hit yet new highs, the European Commission on Wednesday (30th) brought a measure of relief by embracing the idea of banks being allowed to tap European rescue funds directly.

The International Monetary Fund at its last General Assembly suggested that European banks should be able to directly tap the European Stability Mechanism without the need for the government of their country to formally apply for assistance. The European Union commissioner for economic affairs, Olli Rehn, initially rejected the idea but is now warming to it. “To sever the link between banks and the sovereigns, direct recapitalisation by the ESM [European Stability Mechanism] might be envisaged,” the EC said in a policy recommendations report released Wednesday. EC President José Manuel Barroso also told a news conference the euro zone integration could move toward a banking union. Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, is also in favour of the banks bypassing governments to tap the ESM as this would save him the political ignominy of having to go cap in hand for assistance. At the same time, Rajoy has categorically ruled out a rescue package for the Spanish banking system. Earlier on Wednesday, the spread between the yield on the Spanish benchmark 10year government bond and the German equivalent had hit a new euro-era high of 539 basis points. However, by 4pm it had eased somewhat to 533 basis points, but was still close to the levels that forced Portugal to seek a rescue package from the IMF and the EU. The Financial Times on Wednesday quoted unnamed European sources as saying that the ECB categorically rejected the Spanish government’s idea

of injecting the additional 19 billion euros Bankia and its parent Banco Financiero y de Ahorro (BFA) directly in the form of government bonds rather than tapping the markets to get the funding to clean up the balance sheet of Spain’s fourth-largest bank. However, Economy Minister Luis de Guindos denied that the government will go ahead with this funding plan. The ECB added to the confusion by issuing the following press release: “Contrary to media reports published today, the European Central Bank has not been consulted and has not expressed a position on plans by the Spanish authorities to recapitalise a major Spanish bank. The ECB stands ready to give advice on the development of such plans.” Before that, the bank had issued a draft statement that included a line saying: “It should be noted, however, that the funds needed to ensure banks’ compliance with capital requirements, cannot be provided by the Eurosystem.” The ECB subsequently retracted the wording of that text. De Guindos confirmed that the government had not presented any plan to the ECB on funding Bankia’s bailout “because it does not have to do so.” He said the injection of funds in Bankia will be done through the Orderly Bank Restructuring Fund (FROB). “The mechanism is the same as usual, the one used for previous injections,” De Guindos said in Congress. “The FROB will issue [debt] in the capital markets, and to the extent that is required, will inject capital [in Bankia].”

tELEVISION & ENTERTAINMENT guide

You Cannot Be Serious! ITV 1 Saturday 2nd June 7:30 pm

Dropping straight into the busiest weeks of the sporting calendar, You Cannot Be Serious! Is a peaktime topical entertainment show which will mix clips, sketches and impressions. Skewering all the funniest, quirkiest, and silliest clips from the week’s televised sport, the show will also see legendary sports fanatic Alistair Mcgowan write new sketches and work on brand new impressions for TV for the first time in eight years. As the show will be totally topical we can’t say exactly what will feature, but viewers can expect a hilarious take on the week’s biggest, best and most talked about sporting events. With Euro 2012 Football, Wimbledon and Test Cricket, not to mention the frenzied build-up to the London Olympics, there’s sure to be plenty of mishaps, bizarre news and sports stars like Robbie Savage, Gareth Southgate and Roy Hodgson for Alistair to impersonate, as well as deliver a trademark light ribbing to. Not just a show for the hardened sports fanatic however, expect Alistair to impersonate a host of other showbiz favourites like Louie Spence, Peter Andre And Jessie J who will all shoulder their way into the You Cannot Be Serious! World to add their particular spin in some surprising sports situations. Alistair Mcgowan said: “I’ve always had more feedback about my impressions of sport stars than anyone else and it’s been brilliant to be working on a new generation of people we see on TV all the time. This show won’t just be for the sports nuts though and I’m really looking forward to putting some surprising showbiz faces into the middle of it all too.” The series will also see Harry Hill as Executive Producer on the show and is the first time that Alistair has worked with HARRY since both were starting to make their mark on the UK comedy scene back in 1992 with the BBC Radio 4 show When Harry Met Ally.

As millions of us join together to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee and the momentous achievement of 60 years on the throne, this one-off documentary provides a unique insight into the Queen’s life by those who know and love her best. Presenter Alan Titchmarsh documents the Queen’s sixty years on the throne and interviews close family and friends including

The Duke of York, The Duke of Cambridge, The Princess Royal and Princess Eugenie. He explores the closeness of her relationship with her parents, her coronation at the age of 25 as the mother of a two and four-yearold, and how she has succeeded in juggling the roles of Monarch, mother and devoted grandmother. Film footage of the Royal family at home is shown for the first time, along with intimate readings taken from personal letters between Princess Elizabeth and her parents, made public for this programme.

The Secret Millionaire Channel 4 - 9:00 - 10:00 pm Millionaire Carol Hayes is a London-based agent representing celebrities such as Gok Wan and Arlene Phillips. Leaving school at 16 with only one O-level, Carol has built her fortune by being a tough businesswoman and following her instincts. She’s had to be equally tough at home - she bought up her two children as a single parent while running her own business, and gets her workaholic attitude from

her parents, who never expected help from anyone. Now Carol’s on a mission to find charities she feels passionate about and won’t settle for anything less... She goes to East Glasgow’s desolate Easter House Estate, one of the most deprived areas in the UK, where life expectancy in some places is just 54. Struggling to find any kind of life on the estate let alone a charity that she can engage with, Carol is excited to

finally come across Bealach House Day Care Centre, a charity helping people with early stage dementia. As her own mother suffered with dementia Carol becomes passionate about helping a charity so close to her heart. She also discovers the Connie Community centre - the hub of the community and base for several other local charities - and learns the importance of a local area pulling together.

Martin Clunes: The Lemurs of Madagascar

ITV 1 - 9:00 - 10:00 pm Martin Clunes realises a childhood dream of visiting the Indian ocean island of Madagascar to see the threatened species of lemurs for a documentary for ITV1. Moved by the plight of the planet’s last surviving lemurs, Martin sets out to explore what is being done to save them and their environment. These iconic and

endearing primates live only on Madagascar, and one by one, they are dying there. The forests where they thrived have been destroyed, and the lemurs are hunted and eaten by man. Seventeen species are already extinct. This paradise island has turned into their hell. Only a miracle will save them all now. Madagascar broke away

from mainland Africa about 140 million years ago, and it is thought the lemurs arrived on the island on rafts of matted vegetation 60 million years ago. They developed into more than 100 different species to make best use of the abundant sources of food on this island, which has been called Eden with its thousands of unique plants and animals.

Lewis: The Indelible Stain ITV 1 - 8:00 - 10:00 pm When controversial American academic, PAUL YELLAND (David Soul), is invited to speak at Oxford’s Department of Criminology about his theory of “dangerousness”, it stirs up a lot of deep-seated emotions. Many are worried that such ideas could be used to target ethnic minorities; and local anti-racism activist, MYRA (Sian Webber), is the leader of

the pack in voicing her disgust at Yelland’s beliefs. However, the professor faces just as much opposition within the lecture theatre, with the department’s Director, ANNE RAND (Nancy Carroll), clearly very pleased at the publicity the event is raising for the college. Next morning, the visiting professor is found strangled in his room – is it suicide or an anti-hate lynching? Hobson quickly discounts the suicide

theory - someone definitely helped Yelland into that noose - and the suspects are many. Myra, or one of her vociferous accolytes? Myra, or one of her vociferous accolytes? Black student NINA CLEMENS (Pippa Bennett-Warner), who was deeply disturbed by the ideas Yelland was spouting? The O’BRIEN’s (Rita Davies and Josephine Tewson), who had bombarded Yelland with threatening emails after he ripped them off?

William at 30 ITV 1 - 9:00 - 10:00 pm “Carry on as you are now because your mother would be proud of you, your dad is proud of you, your grandparents are proud of you and I think the nation is actually proud of you too.”

Dickie Arbiter, press secretary to Princess Diana

From his momentous birth as second in line to the throne, through the tragedy of his mother’s death and his

marriage to Kate Middleton, this documentary reflects on the incredible journey of Prince William as he turns 30. This hour-long programme features archive and interviews with royal correspondents, commentators and those close to William reflecting on his 30 years, and looking at the man behind the public persona. William at 30 also looks at his current role as a serviceman,

a worldwide ambassador for charity, a brother and husband as well as his approach to his royal duties as a future king. The documentary charts the young prince’s life beginning with his birth at St Mary’s Hospital in London and his early exposure to the press pack as a youngster. Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl sets up the early conflict in William’s life between official duty and trying to lead an everyday life.

The House The 50´S Built Channel 4 - 9:00 - 10:00 pm To coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, this new four-part series celebrates the science behind the inventions and innovations that transformed the way we used to live, and catapulted an exhausted, postwar country into the modernity of 1950s Britain. Engineer and showman Professor Brendan Walker sets out to discover the ingenuity and life-changing technology behind the inventions that took drab, black and white post-war Britain and launched it, under its new young Queen Elizabeth II, into a Technicolor drenched

world of the future. Brendan learns from practical, handson experience exactly what it took to bring about the 50´s revolution by reconstructing a house. Each episode focuses on a room and fast-forwards it through the 1950´s, showcasing how progress in the home triggered a tsunami of social change. Brendan experiments with everything from how to make a Formica kitchen and using atomic bomb know-how to make a non-stick pan, to how to turn a vat of chemicals into comfortable lingerie that changed women’s lives.

Katy’s Bare-Faced Chic Kim’s Airport Nightmare

How’s this for a before and after shot? Katy Perry’s showing off her make-upfree face in a new tour documentary. Let’s park her expression for a sec and consider her perfect skin and bright blue eyes, which prove she really doesn’t need any of her famous slap. The star unveiled clips from the film, which goes behind the scenes of her Part Of Me concert tour, to Ellen DeGeneres. She told the talk-show host: “When you see the film, it’s a bit scary because there’s a lot of shots of me bloated with zits and normal. “I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or

live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film.” Hold up - zits? Bloating? Where? All we can see is a pretty pop star with a blinding smile. It’s not the first time we’ve seen a slapfree Katy. Remember THAT Twitter picture, courtesy of her now-ex-hubby Russell Brand? The naughty comedian took the snap while Katy was in bed, but swiftly removed it when she woke up in a bad mood. It’s nice to see a star baring all for once... and for once, we’re not talking about skimpy outfits.

M a r v ’ s M a te s G o To o Fa r ?

Marvin Humes’ friends have well and truly screwed him over. The JLS star is currently enjoying a raucous stag do in Las Vegas. And, just as you would expect, it involves all things naughty, embarrassing and downright weird. Handcuffed to a midget, ingeniously named 5 Cent, Rochelle Wiseman’s fiancé is wandering around the city dressed in women’s lingerie (of sorts).

Kim Kardashian has accused British Airways of stealing from her suitcase. In a furious Twitter rant, the star slammed the airline for rifling through her luggage and snaffling some irreplaceable items. Whatever could they be? Kim has been spending a lot of time in London lately as she promotes her various products - from a new perfume to a diet shake. But it sounds like she won’t be returning anytime soon after a run-in with officials at BA.

Kim’s got her knickers in a right twist She tweeted: “Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine! Some things are sentimental &not replaceable. What happened to the days

when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There’s no sense of security & no trust! Shame on you” (sic) Kim is now back in LA, and the sentimental items in question remain a mystery.

Cat Deeley And Patrick Kielty M a ke T h e i r P u b l i c D e b u t

Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty have been romantically linked for months but they finally decided to take the next step and make their romance public at the Glamour Awards. Stepping out hand-in-hand, they made their red carpet debut as a couple at last week’s Glamour Women Of The Year Awards, held at Berkeley Square gardens. Despite being linked at the start of the year, this is the first time they’ve officially come out as a couple. And they looked more than comfortable to show off their affection for each other as they stood side-by-side on the red carpet while snappers were busy clicking away.

McFly Announce Victoria Beckham: I’m Not Special Olympics Show Miserable All The Time

Pouting Posh insists she has reached a state of nirvana but, despite recent attempts to show off her fun side on Twitter, is jacking in trying to prove she’s a happy bunny. ‘Yes, I created this persona and I’m very different from that,’ she told Germany’s Interview magazine. ‘I don’t feel like I have to scream and shout about it – I know I am a happy person, so I don’t get upset when people comment on the fact that I look quite miserable all the time. Sometimes I think the same thing when I look at the pictures.’ The self-deprecating 38-year-old also slated her previous career as a Spice Girl. She added: ‘Was music my talent? No, I don’t think I was particularly talented. With the other girls, the five of us really worked together.’ Posh’s ‘shy’ husband, David, became the first man to grace the cover of Elle magazine this week and claimed he, too, was misunderstood.

‘I never thought about the money, the fame. It never interested me and it doesn’t interest me now,’ the 37-year-old said.

As if a McFly wedding and a McFly engagement weren’t enough excitement for us - now we’ve been given some amazing news about these fabulous fellas… That’s right Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter will be playing a very special one-off summer show as a part of The Olympic celebrations. Could 2012 get any better? (The answer to this is ‘no’ by the way.)

The McFly boys will play a set at an event called London Live, which will be held at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 4th August – and while they’re banging out some tunes like Star Girl and It’s All About You in the sunshine (well, we’re hoping there’ll be sunshine), there’ll also be some super huge screens dotted around the place so sports fans won’t miss out on the days’ Olympic events. How brilliant.

out on the town

“Moonlighting With Six Strings” Flicks in Silencio are not afraid to try; half the Eagles, the tribute band “Take It to the Limit”, arguably one of the best on the island, were down here on Sunday playing to a packed terrace. Gary Jay and self-confessed lunatic, Pat “Scotty” Wilson were jammin’ away nicely with a mix of rock ‘n’ roll, interspersed with blues classics; Fleetwood Mac’s “Need Your Love” was brill. The lads, never a pair to take themselves seriously, were having a ball and kids too young to remember “The Shadows” were dancing along nicely to “Apache”. Dave Tracey, gaffer down here, finally found his niche as a vocalist on this instrumental. It´s difficult to get serious as I am writing

this while the guys are still playing, but the musicianship can´t be faulted; these are two men enjoying their craft and each other’s company, and it shows. Riffs galore and jokes abound, “we had a request for reggae, and we had a request for Bon Jovi, so here’s some Status Quo.” Good crack and good fun, unfortunately unavailable to book, but an excellent advert for the full band. Once again, Flicks, you have come up trumps. Pop down and see Lorna and Jay for a superb Sunday lunch with great service. For further details check Coast FM and Tenerife Weekly’s good gig guide.

Keep it live, Gordon King.

K has been dead for 40 years, and Earth will soon come under attack from an extraterrestrial force with the power to claim the entire planet. Now, in order to set the past straight and head off an invasion of epic proportions, Agent J must travel back to the year 1969, when Young Agent K (Josh Brolin) was just a fresh new face on the force. But Agent J only has 24 hours to find the source of the coming catastrophe and discern how his longtime partner ties into the situation -- should he fail he’ll be stuck in the past forever.

Sharples in Session By John Sharples

Granny Power Rules OK!

How the world has changed since the Spice Girls spiced up our lives and brought girl power into the western world. The latest girl group to hit the screens, and probably the summer charts, hail from Russia. The Eurovision song contest is a must see for anyone who enjoys the freaky side of life. This year’s contest was full of the usual dross, eloquently destroyed by the vicious and sharp tongue of Graham Norton. There were some really poor tuneless songs this year and the British entry sung by Humptyberk Dumpydink managed to plumb the depths of despair and give Britain the second-to-last place. This was no surprise to me when I first heard it, and I can only think that the BBC was scared of winning in case they had to pay to put the contest on next year! (They have after all just had sweeping cuts made to their budget.) Despite the dross, however, there were some moments of sheer brilliance. People everywhere are talking about the winning song. It really has it all, catchy, clubby, poppy and a lyric that you can remember after the first hearing. Well done Sweden, not exactly ABBA, but very good nevertheless. Jedward were scary, even frightening. What a shame that their talent isn’t as big as their hair. They finished off their routine by getting wet through in a fountain. As far as I am concerned, they were as wet as a

Shame On You

I have a friend who is in desperate need of a day trip. Not a day trip to Bangor, but to Mount Teide. Michael has lived in Tenerife for 25 years and, to his shame, he has never been up Mount Teide. I find it unbelievable and (sorry Michael) inexcusable. It reminds me of the Japanese soldier who was found wandering about, years later, who thought that the war was still on! Needless to say, this will soon be rectified. Leo, Gordon and I will capture him and drag him up there screaming! The Teide National Park is a world heritage site and it is a must see for anyone. The views are spectacular and not to be missed! The sheer immensity of the mountain and its surroundings are still awe inspiring to me after more than 50 visits.

weekend in Grimsby from the moment they jumped on stage. For me, the stars of the show were the Russian Grannies, whose bouncy pop song had more bite than they had teeth between them. They shone out like a beacon. It was a brave and inspired choice. They really looked like they were enjoying themselves, they sang a catchy tune and, to top the lot, they baked bread whilst they were doing it! This year’s winner will be a major hit around the world, but the image of the little granny smiling at the camera and offering us bread was a moment that is now imprinted on my brain.

Opportunity Knocks

Whilst talent shows are big stuff on television, can’t the BBC bring back the old favourite? O p p o r t u n i t y knocks was the mother of all talent shows and the format would work well today, given a little tweak. It was especially good because it didn’t just focus on singers, also, the same acts didn’t perform every week and the all winners’ finals were always full of top quality acts. It produced so many stars and big names. Bring it back, I say, and I mean that most sincerely!

J u b i l a t i o n s I decorated my first cake this week. I made it for the jubilee. I just wanted to share the results with you. I can’t give you all a piece, but I thought I would give you a glimpse. It just goes to prove once again to me that we can do anything we want to; we just have to set our minds to it. Happy jubilee celebrations folks and congratulations to our lovely Queen Elizabeth the Second. Long may she reign.

Tenerife Weekly - 1st June - 7th June 2012 COMMUNITY MATTERS

Community matters

Written by Ken Cumming Pastor of Callao Salvaje Community Church

A Long and Winding Path Sometimes the path of life seems impossibly steep and lengthy. I have no strength and no will for the journey. Then I remember God knew this path long before I was called to walk it. He has always known the difficulties I would experience, the pain that I could never explain to another. He knows and offers His presence. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed with sadness today. It may be the weight of a difficult ministry; the worry of a hard marriage; the sorrow of a struggling child; the care of an aging parent; other troubles that come with

life. “Surely,” you say, “God would not have me walk this way. There must be another, easier path for me to travel.” But are any of us wise enough to know that some other way would make us into better and wiser children? No, our Father in heaven knows the best path, out of all possible paths, to bring us to completion (Psalm. 142:3). His ways are higher than our ways; His thoughts higher than our thoughts (Isaiah. 55:9). We can humbly take the path He has marked out for us today, and do so in absolute trust in His infinite wisdom and love.

A Place Called Home

A couple who brought their elderly aunt to live with them were concerned that she would not feel at home. So they transformed a room in their house into an exact replica of her bedroom at the home she left behind. When their aunt arrived, her furniture, wall hangings, and other favourite things felt like a special “Welcome home!” to her. In John 13:36–14:4, we read that at the Last Supper Jesus spoke to His disciples and tried to prepare them for His death. When Simon Peter asked, “Where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going you cannot follow Me now, but you shall follow Me afterward” (13:36). Jesus was still speaking

He is wiser and more loving than we can ever know. He who sees has foreseen and will not lead us astray. Be still and know that He is God For pathways steep and rough; Not what He brings, but what He is Will always be enough. —Anon. God will never lead you down a wrong path

directly to Peter (and also meant it for all of His followers) when He said, “In My Father’s house are many mansions [rooms]; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (14:2-3). Heaven is a family gathering of believers from every tribe and nation, but it is also our Father’s house—and in that house He is preparing a room just for you. When you arrive in heaven and Jesus opens the door, you’ll know you’re home. I have a home in heaven above From sin and sorrow free— A mansion which eternal love Designed and formed for me. —Bennett For the Christian, heaven is spelled H-O-M-E.

Your Hair & Beauty Advice Column by Jade & staff at The Perfect Gift Salon

2 0 12 s u m m e r f a s h i o n s !

With all the fantastic (and sometimes really crazy) fashions that we Brits have followed over the decades, you can’t beat good old patriotism! I love it; it’s bright, bold, and expressive, and let’s face it. It can never go out of fashion. So what better time than 2012 to have a bit of fun with this style: we have our Queen’s diamond jubilee, the 2012 Olympics happening in no other than our capital and, of course, the European championships 2012 footy! So let’s show the rest of the world that we´re proud to be British with this year’s hottest trends and accessories. Lip tattoos The newest development in crazy fashions which, if you’re brave enough to wear these lip tattoos, you will certainly stand out in the crowd and show you have the full spirit of the 2012 forthcoming celebrations. If applied correctly the tattoos will last up to 8

hours, which is great if you’re not one for reapplying lipstick. Ok ladies, this is the fastest trend in the fashion industry, bright coloured hair to go with the brightly coloured clothes. With so many Party shades to choose from Pink you’re spoilt for choice; Hair red, white, blue or all 3 for the celebrations! Orange, pink and many more to pick from. Fashion colour dyes can be temporary, semi-permanent or even permanent; although perhaps if you are going to go wild, it’s an idea to have your stylist try a temporary colour first, to make sure you like it. Fancy nails!

How about a little patriotism for your fingers and toes? These fun nails really look great and I always smile when I see someone with their nails painted with the Union Jack flag. They show that the person has imagination, creativity and that they have put a little extra effort into their manicure. If you are unable to do the fancy nails yourself, especially your writing hand, a trip to a salon could be the answer. Union Jack contacts! Although people have been wearing crazy contact for quite some time now,

Celebrate this year’s Jubilee with some makeup on!

Any time soon, we’ll all be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. During this celebration, not only party decorations are important: costumes, jubilee makeup and novelties are on the list of must haves to have a good time. We are all different, some love to dress

up, and for others, finding a good jubilee costume is difficult, the whole thing of trying it on, getting to the party store, and been able to find the right size, etc. Seems boring enough not to even try. And for the shy, showing up on a costume can be too much. That’s why jubilee makeup, is such a great option.

we hear that U.K flags in your eyes are going to be big this summer, through all the festivities. Personally, I don’t think you can get more crazy than crazy eyes, they are so effective and people just can’t help but stare. Fashion contact lenses last up to 90 days as long as you take care of them and use the correct solution to store them in overnight. Always check the E.U standards on the packaging before attempting to put anything in your eyes. Body Gems! Aahhh the body gems! To add a bit of sparkle this season, especially when the sun catches them. The gems can be placed literally anywhere on the body; on your face, shoulder, midriff, wrist, back, ankle or anywhere else you can think of. If applied correctly and looked after, the designs can last 3 to 5 days. Shop about to find a salon that offers this treatment. Hair Vajazzles

Very cute! But at the same time, glam. The hair vajazzles are the latest invention from Amy Childs, who has designed the hair gems with us girls in mind. The gems are attached in the hair and will last until you next need to brush it. I think they are very pretty if you have somewhere special to go, although perhaps not as many as she is wearing in the picture! Blue Hollywood eyelash Extensions

The beautiful blue and jewelled eyelash extensions are now growing in the world of fashion. I absolutely adore these lashes, because although they are blue, they still look natural and really widen the appearance of the eyes, especially if you have blue or green eyes the lashes enhance the colour. Not only are these lashes fun, they go great with the bright colours we will be wearing for this 2012. For beauty and hair advice, email us at: the.perfect.gift@hotmail.com

The Gaia Apothecary Qualified Medical Herbalist by Meg Glaister HERBS FOR BABIES Herbal medicine is ideal for the everyday problems that babies have, as they are safe and effective. They are also helpful for the nursing mother: for instance a cup of nettle tea (ortiga verde) taken three times a day will not only give mother and baby nutrients, but will increase the amount of milk. Try adding an infusion of rosemary, chamomile, and lavender or lime flower to make a nice relaxing, refreshing bath for the baby. Clean the eyes, face and nappy area with an antiseptic infusion of lavender or calendula. For the umbilical cord, an infusion of rosemary will help to keep the area clean.

If there is inflammation, soak a piece of gauze in a weak infusion of calendula or lavender, place on the inflammation and change every two hours until the inflammation is reduced. To prevent or heal nappy rash, which is always a problem, wash the area with a dilute

infusion of lavender, chamomile or calendula. Dry thoroughly and leave the nappy off as much as possible. An ointment made from calendula will soothe, heal and protect the baby’s skin. Avoid talc as it cakes on the skin and collects bacteria. Cradle cap is another common problem in babies, usually if they have a tendency to oily skin. To help prevent cradle cap it is best not to wash the baby’s hair with soap or shampoo and don’t wash often. Massage the baby’s head with 1 teaspoonful of olive oil or almond oil and 2 drops of lavender, rosemary or lemon essential oil. Colic usually occurs after a feed and is characterised by crying and the baby drawing its knees up to the stomach. It can be caused by tension in either the mother or the baby.

Weight loss products are easy to come by these days, but do any of them actually work, and are they safe? The answers are never simple. Much depends on individual needs; for people in good health without serious medical conditions to contend with, there are more options available. People who are taking a variety of medications, however, must be cognisant of the dangers of drug interaction, as the wrong combinations can be lethal. Another factor to be considered is the amount of weight a person needs to lose. Those needing to drop a lot of weight to regain their health need to be under a physician’s guidance. Only he or she can determine if weight loss products are advisable. Those wishing to drop just a few quick pounds may find relatively healthy, short-term solutions. The rest, who fall somewhere in between those two extremes, will probably discover that a healthy diet and exercise regimen is a much safer way to achieve weight goals. In short, weight loss products should never be considered as a long-term solution. Having said that, let’s look at a few weight loss products in more detail: Alli Alli, also sold as Orlistat, is a weight loss drug with a good reputation. Alli is not believed to negatively affect the heart like so many of its competitors, so you shouldn’t feel off-kilter, jittery, or experience a racing heartbeat while taking the product. Additionally, for most people there isn’t that horrible side effect of insomnia, so

common with other weight loss products. Alli works by reducing the amount of fat the body absorbs. It also helps to reduce the amount of exercise required to burn off existing fat. Finally, people report they don’t experience a bounce-back problem (ie putting all the weight back on) when they stop taking Alli. There are, however, some cons. Alli can increase the amount of gas a person experiences, which can be painful or at least uncomfortable. Bowel movements often change unpredictably. Some people report an inability to control their stools, which can be unusually odour offensive. There is also a possibility that Alli can cause liver damage. That claim is under investigation by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the U.S. and comparable agencies in other countries. Chitosan Chitosan works to block the amount of fat absorption in the human body. It binds carbs, fats and sugars together, allowing them to pass through the digestive system without being stored. It is a natural product that some believe also assists the digestive process. Unfortunately, Chitosan is derived from shellfish, which makes it dangerous for individuals with allergies of that type. While there isn’t sufficient evidence to prove the product is unsafe, neither is there any evidence of its long-term success. Additionally, some believe the use of Chitosan may block essential vitamin and mineral absorption. CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) may prove to be another safe weight loss medication.

It works to decrease the number of fat cells while increasing muscle mass and boosting metabolism. It also supposedly jumpstarts the breakdown of fat within the body, while also lowering the amount of it that is stored. It does not, however, work alone. It requires the ingestion of a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen to achieve the best results. Unfortunately, proof of its effectiveness and safety is still in question. Green Tea Fat Burner This is touted by some as a great way of reducing belly fat, due to is component, called catechin. While green tea apparently works for some people, it doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. At this point the results are inconclusive. The negative effects of green tea may be worse than the benefits for some people. It can cause anxiety, diarrhoea, frequent urination, insomnia, irritability, nausea and upset stomach.

Before feeding the baby, give 30ml of chamomile, fennel or Melissa infusion made by adding 100ml boiling water to half a teaspoon of the dried herb and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Add an infusion of hops or chamomile to the baby’s bath to help alleviate any pain and ensure a restful night. For teething, you can give a mild infusion of either chamomile or lime flowers frequently to help ease pain and inflammation and rub the gums with honey or, better still, add 1 drop of chamomile essential oil to the honey. If you have any health topics you wish me to discuss on this page or would like a free 15 minute discussion to see if Herbal Medicine can help your condition please feel free to contact Meg Glaister DBTh MIRCH (The Gaia Apothecary) on 649 529 703 or email gaiaapothecary@hotmail.com

Hoodia Hoodia has long been touted as a weight loss miracle. It comes from a South African cactus-type plant, and works as an appetite suppressant. It tricks the brain into thinking the body is already full, working both for food and drink. That, in turn, means that a person will eat and drink less than before. Hoodia gordonii is all-natural, while the formulated Hoodia often used in weight lost medications is not. It can be hard for a consumer to distinguish which version he or she is receiving. While many people swear by the effectiveness of Hoodia, the medical community is still unconvinced. There is insufficient proof that the synthetic Hoodia is either safe or effective. These weight loss products touch on only a few of the things available in today’s marketplace. As a rule of thumb, it is always best to get a doctor’s opinion before taking any type of medication, even that purchased over-the counter.

Tenerife Weekly - 1st June - 7th June 2012 WILDE’S WORLD / WHO RATTLED YOUR CAGE?

WILDE’S WORLD

Welcome to this week’s round up of the stranger news stories of the week; and Pepsi have announced the launch of a new range in its Japanese shops for the summer. “Salty watermelon” flavoured soda was unveiled to the list of already unconventional

Big In-salts

A range of salts said to have been collected from human tears has gone on sale in London. Hoxton Street’s Monster Supplies says the salts come from crying humans experiencing a range of emotions.

Fish on the lung

flavours available, including “Pepsi White” which is infused with yoghurt, and “Pepsi Pink” with a strawberry milk taste. Although the salty watermelon may sound unappetising to most of us, the unique mix of flavours actually makes perfect sense in Japan, where adding a dash of

Doctors in India have operated to remove a live fish from the lung of a 12-year-old boy. Anil Barela swallowed the 9cm fish while playing on a riverside with friends in the Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh state. The Times of India says boys commonly swallow live fish - but this one went down the wrong way and entered the boy’s left lung. Anil soon started feeling short of breath and was x-rayed after the oxygen levels in his blood dropped alarmingly. Doctors decided on immediate surgery and removed the fish in a 45 minute operation.

The £7 range includes salts harvested from tears of sorrow, tears shed while sneezing, tears shed while chopping onions, tears of laughter, and tears of anger. A spokesman for the company said that each salt had a distinctly different flavour. “Salt Made From Tears combines centuries-old craft with the freshest human tears which are gently boiled, released into shallow crystallisation tanks, then harvested by hand and finally rinsed in brine,” he said.

A woman has given birth in an INEM employment office in Madrid, with help from a doctor on the dole. The Nigerian woman, aged nearly 40, and her baby boy were taken to the Alcorcón Hospital after the birth. Both are in good health. The woman was 35-and-a-half weeks pregnant. She already has other children and has been living in Spain for some years. The Brazilian doctor, a specialist in psychology, was in the office to sign up for the dole when he noticed the woman’s waters break and jumped in to help. Have a great week and check out Wilde at the weekend, Saturdays 12 till 3 only on Coast FM.

Take a look at the papers, listen to the radio, pay a visit to the cinema, ‘looking back’ is all the rage. In the current Blockbuster, Men In Black 3; the star travels back in time…. (How many of us wish we could do that?) Last week’s big science news was the vast improvement in teleportation of photons thru time and space. Even this week’s celebrations, ‘Día De Canarias’, celebrating the islands’ culture, people, and commemorating the anniversary of the autonomous Canary Islands Parliament’s first session in 1983. ooking back on last week’s column, I had a surprising amount of feedback, some positive, some negative; so I thought I would briefly reflect on its content. For those who missed it, I highlighted the fact that some people can be rude, unthinking and inconsiderate. This viewpoint was taken from the perspective of my own profession as an entertainer. Having re-read it, it is true, there is quiet a level of frustration it the piece’s tone and timbre, but I stand by my convictions. I would however like to also point out though, that the people/persons mentioned are a VERY rare breed, and few and far between! Even less than a minority! They are nothing more than a fractured fragment of who, by a clear majority, are a wonderfully diverse selection of people. Not only a selection of people who continually return to our islands, supporting its culture and community, but the kind of people who make service sector workers

salt to watermelon “to bring out the taste” is common practice. Coca-Cola also has strange soda offerings in Japan where you can buy a clear and flavourless soda known as “The Wellness” which is targeted at health conscious women. Sounds like a can of WATER...

Dr Pramod Jhawar, chest specialist and bronchoscope expert, said it was the first case of its kind he had come across in 20 years. “The fish was live and taking its last breath when the bronchoscopy was done, restricting the functioning of both the lungs resulting in low intake of oxygen,” he said.

Reflections Pt. 1

WANT to do the jobs they do. Generally, so they are able to meet the customers who cherish and nourish our little rock. I have a habit of standing up for the little man, the poor person, the person in need, or the person not getting their fair deal. It was an incident affecting such people that bore the seed that propagated into last week’s article. Some people come here a few times a year. Others save up all year, to have their one week away, their one chance to enjoy our islands. Why should they suffer at the will of the minority? This is not popular speech, but we are still entitled to speak freely (a finger I shall be firmly pointing at myself and my own profession next week). But the customer ISN’T always right!! The customer should always be made to feel right, but it doesn’t necessarily make it so. People being rude, inconsiderate, aggressive, foul mouthed or worse to members of staff ARE NOT RIGHT!!

A

nd when they destroy someone else’s holiday, they are definitely NOT right! Worse still, defending

their arrogance by claiming “it’s what the waitress is paid for”. The working staffs of the island are here to help, to serve, to cook, to clean, to perform….. To make your holiday the experience you paid for and deserve. Most will go out of their way to do much more, and when you say “thank you”, they will reply “it’s my pleasure” and they mean it. Enjoy them all, it is part of your experience. here are so many reasons I love our Island; the people, both visitors and those who have chosen to make it their home. Obviously the weather, the camaraderie of the working community and stories people on holiday have to tell: some lamenting of their adventure here, or sometimes telling tales of family life at home. It provides such a warm rich tapestry, interwoven with shared experiences and insights into how we all came to be here at the same time. Also the chance or reacquainting with people who return here year after year, watching their children grow, up in some cases, and in others, as I watched tonight, being proposed to!

T

False alarm

Police and paramedics were called out to reports of a man covered in blood, staggering close to a canal, only to find he was filming a zombie movie. Officers and ambulance crews had rushed to the Aire and Calder canal near Stanley Ferry in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. But they arrived at the scene to find film makers shooting a zombie movie. Nicola Morter, 31, of Barnsley, was producing The Eschatriology for Safehouse Pictures UK which she co-founded with partner Damian. She said the incident happened as around 30 actors and extras were made up as zombies on the last day of a five-day shoot. She said: “The zombies were walking across a bridge over the canal. I’m guessing either a dog walker or someone driving past has spotted one. PC Tim Saxon said: “We got called to a report of a male covered in blood staggering around. We had to investigate what it was and take it on its own merit as it could have been anything. “We had to walk through fields and didn’t know what it was we would find. Then suddenly we saw nine zombies and a film crew and they had some very realistic make-up. “It was a relief no one was injured and we would prefer to be safe than sorry. They were just as surprised to see us and were quite jovial.”

Tying all of these things together is one simple thing: our Island has a soul, and in its soul it carries a smile! Throughout global recession, continuing wars, natural disasters and personal tragedies, people return, year in, year out for the island’s smile. And they normally share their own smile with us. It is such a simple thing, a free thing, and something that doesn’t always fit in with my column’s title line…….. (Although a wry smile is still a smile). So if we are all still smiling after all the aforementioned, then I think we will all be just fine. Next week, as mentioned earlier, I will be turning my pointy little finger towards myself, and the ‘professional’ entertainment industry here. gain, it is not intended to entice or insight ridicule or retribution, just another reflection to hopefully provoke a thought, or consideration. It took a long standing member of the entertainment community being as blunt, (but as objective as I plan on being) with me a few years ago that help me see that sometimes we don’t look hard enough in the mirror, or forget what a wonderfully privilege position we are in…. If any of next week’s points prick, maybe it is just the cold point of self-realisation that I also faced as I was told “Dave, you’re being a jumped up, gobby … *missing word available earlier in this sentence*” Thank you Mr Price, your advice was heard, heeded and never forgotten. Until next week, have a wonderful time, and smile. X

Tenerife Weekly - 1st June - 7th June 2012 CALDERS CONFESSIONS

‘I’m so sorry’

When I was 13 I was real trouble at home. In the heat of an argument I lashed out at my mum and really hurt her so I was put into care. That was 10 years ago. Since then I’ve changed a lot and I want to mend my relationship with my mum. She doesn’t want to know me though and it really upsets me. Lisa

Calders Confessions Calder spent twelve years working as PA and Co-presenter with Jeremy Kyle on various radio stations and has now joined the team at Coast FM where he answers listeners´dilemmas each Sunday night on the airwaves. We are also very grateful to have him here, answering your questions and queries as part of the Tenerife Weekly team. If you have an issue you can`t overcome or just need general help and confidential advice, why not email Calder: calder@coastfmtenerife.com

It’s a difficult situation Lisa. I have to be completely honest and say that no parent finds it hard to forgive when one of their children hits them. In this case, you caused serious harm and the consequences of that were pretty dire. People can and do change, especially teenagers. It’s good to see that you’re one

of those people. Whilst your mum is shunning your attempts to speak to her, you’ll probably find that if you send her a letter she will, at the very least, read it. Lay down your thoughts and feelings on paper, be as honest as you can and then give your mum a little more time to respond. It could be that you’ve lost her forever but something deep down inside me tells me that, as a parent, she must still love you. All you can do is try isn’t it? I hope its pans out for you.

‘Dangerous Dad’

My dad has always been violent in our family. He’s never been shy with hitting us if we do something wrong and we’ve learnt to deal with it. The problem is that he’s got worse recently and has started threatening us, once even with a kitchen knife. I don’t want to get him in trouble but I’m scared. Should I tell someone? I’m 16 years old. Beth

Despite his behaviour, it’s totally obvious that you love your dad to bits! The violence of course, is completely unacceptable and I don’t think anybody could blame you for wanting an end to it. Sometimes in life, difficult situations can only be resolved by making decisions. Your dad is terrorizing his family and it seems to be escalating doesn’t it? I’m not saying he’s evil personified but he does have issues and does need help. Your safety and that of the rest of the family has to come first, even before your dad. It’s definitely worth trying to sit down and tell

him how worried you are but the next time anything happens you simply must call the police. Once they are involved, all sorts help and support automatically become available to you and the rest of the family. In an ideal world, your dad would come to his senses all by himself but I very much doubt that’s going to happen. Speak to your mum and let her know what I’ve said. But also make note of this number - 0800 1111 which will get you through to Childline in the UK. Give these guys a call in complete confidence, any time you like. They’ll know exactly how to help you through this whole thing. Good luck Beth.

‘I need counselling’

I was raped 4 years ago and I’ve been a mess ever since. I really want to have counselling to help me but I’ve never told anyone what happened to me. I’m scared that if I tell someone they’ll make me tell the police. What do you think I should do? Ally

Talking to the police would be a good idea Ally, they will not only be helpful and supportive but they will also investigate the crime and hopefully, prosecute your attacker. Please don’t just dismiss what I’m saying, your case will be treated in confidence and your friends and family don’t necessarily need to know about it. The reasoning behind this is to prevent this animal from putting other girls through the same ordeal! Of course dealing with your inner turmoil is essential and the fact that you have already embraced the idea of counselling is certainly going help you along the way. Think long and hard about what you need to do for yourself as well as other potential victims. This guy may have committed acts of violence before and there could well be a string of people who, just like you, don’t want to involve the police. Effectively that means he gets away with and will continue to do it. Before you finally decide how approach this, take a look at www.rapecrisis.org. uk which is a website packed with useful information and advice for victims, like yourself. At the end of the day, what’s right for you is the most important thing, so sit down, have a browse of that site and take things from there.

It’s Time To Smile And Laugh

Are times tough? Are you in Lack mode? Are you on a downward spiral? Are you struggling with the challenges of life? If so smile!!!! You may think that is facetious of me, but it helps, it really does. Smiling and laughing are good for you. You may not feel like laughing or smiling, but if you just try it… go on make the corners of your lips turn upwards…….did you feel it? Did you feel that flow of wellbeing? Did you feel calmer? Was there a glimpse of happiness? You see, when you smile, you use less muscles than when you are stressed; so instantly you relax your face, and a feeling of well being washes over you. For an instant you are in the present moment with your smile, and not with the pain of the past, or anxiety of what might happen to you next. Laughing is even better for you, as it releases endorphins; that relax your whole body and de-stress you. So how long is it since you had a good belly laugh? These days laughing is a new therapy and many Holistic centres run classes in Laughter therapy. Maybe life has been too serious for you, and laughing hasn’t been in your remit. Some people find it easy to smile, and have one on their face all the time. You know those people who make light of everything, and life is just one big joke. Others have wrinkles that give their mouth a downward turn and you just know they haven’t spent a life laughing. So when you are presented with a challenge (that’s my word for a problem, as it’s only a problem if we make it one!), take a moment and smile and think what is this really about. So what makes you smile? A joke, a baby or tiny animal? Nice clothes? A loved one? Music? A beautiful scene? A memory? There are loads of reasons to smile, and if you struggle with it, stick a smiley face on your mirror, or in your car so when you look at it, you smile. Maybe the thing that makes you smile is better than the word, as some people are very visual; so if it makes you smile, then use it. As you wake up in the m-orning, stretch and smile at the day ahead and the opportunities it presents to you. So that’s smiling, but what about laughing: well here you may have to work

a bit harder……read a funny book, listen or watch a funny film or performance, or have a fun time with friends. Having a good belly laugh is so good for you, it’s healthy and it’s stimulating and it’s free!! Last week was a bit serious for me, and I was plucked out of it by an unexpected invitation to go and see Bitter and Twisted at Vivo, in Las Américas. Just the invite made me smile. As we got ready to go to the 3 Course Dinner Show I was thinking; I needed a good laugh, and boy I wasn’t disappointed. From the moment we walked in I was smiling, free drink, and my favourite chocolates in a dish on our table.

We had our photo taken with Bitter and Twisted and yes, their expressions made me smile too. The three course meal was very enjoyable and beautifully served by a very friendly waitress. Enjoying the company at our table ensured even more smiles and laughter. I have to say I didn’t know what to expect as this was the first time I had ever been to such an event, yeah I know I don’t get out much! Well I can honestly say I haven’t laughed so much in years, real belly laughing that was just so lovely to experience again. Bitter and Twisted and the Decades dancers guaranteed us a wonderful evening of entertainment, but more laughter than my belly could hold, I was in stitches at their antics and I’m not going to reveal any more of it here, suffice to say it is a wonderful night out and laughing is not optional, its guaranteed. Go on treat yourself to one of the funniest night outs here in Tenerife….. you are worth it! The Decades Dinner Show at Vivo Las Américas.

PETS’ PAGE

Welcome to Tenerife Weekly’s Pets’ Page

Pets’ Corner

My name is Steph and some of you may have heard me on Coast FM each Thursday when I try to find good homes for fantastic pets. Each week this page will be filled with both useful and entertaining information to keep you up to date with the world of pets here in the Canaries.

How to decide on where to board your pet

Now that holiday season is approaching it is important to start thinking about what to do with your pet when you go away. I have had numerous clients ask me over recent weeks where to board their four legged friends and, although I can neither recommend or discourage you against a particular place, I can offer you tips for what to look out for and ways of making your selection the best one for you. • In the first instance don’t go by advert alone. Make sure that you are able to visit and see all areas of the establishment. Ideally going un-announced works best (within opening hours of course) as you are able to get an honest view of how things are run, but if an appointment must be made then get one booked in. • When you visit assess the areas

• •

that the dogs or cats have. In the case of dogs, do they have their own run attached onto the kennels or is it just a kennel? Or indeed are they all sharing one big space? Check the quality of the building/ fencing surrounding the dogs. Does it look as though your dog could climb the wall to escape or perhaps get underneath some fencing? If the fencing is not very high is it covered to prevent escapees? Do all the animals have fresh water? Do the kennels require vaccination and de-flea/worm certificates? Obviously ensure that your own dog has been treated, if just to prevent them coming back with little visitors. How do meal times work? Do you provide your own food? This way you know your dog will be

getting the same diet as at home as opposed to chopping and changing. Also provide detailed instructions on feeding times and quantities. • Do the dogs get play or walk times? Is there a secure yard for them to play in at certain times of the day or do they go out on walks? Obviously the decision on both of these is down to you and if you would rather they did not get walked for whatever reason, or did not wish them to go in an

exercise yard then make this clear to the kennel owners. • Find out what happens in the case of illness or injury while you are away. Do they have a specific local vet that they use? • Assess the cleanliness of the place. Obviously the odd bit of mess can be excused but are you content that the place is regularly cleaned? • Is someone on site during night times and at points throughout the day?

Acción del Sol’s weekly news P a w s f o r

This week’s news has been written by the visiting students from Germany who are on a week’s work experience at Acción Del Sol. A very special opportunity was given to us from a college in Bavaria, the chance to come to Acción Del Sol dog refuge for a week’s work experience. We were met at Munich by one of Aktiontier’s vets (in Germany) who introduced us to the forth coming week and what skills and knowledge in animal welfare that we would learn. On arrival we were met at Tenerife South airport by the director of Acción Del Sol, Marion González, who then proceeded to give us a guided tour of the refuge and introduced us to many of the 180 dogs that reside there. We then took 5 of the dogs for a walk through the “Parque Eolica “ and down to the beach; the dogs had a great time. The following day was spent with the vet and his assistant where we were shown various procedures, even a castration, which is so important to prevent unwanted puppies. This was very interesting as some of us hope to be vets in the future.

The next day we assisted the kennel workers with their cleaning duties and the feeding of the dogs. Acción Del Sol has a very strict routine, but we feel this is very important as the standards of care are extremely high at the refuge and it is spotlessly clean. The kennel workers jobs are very hard, but the staff are very dedicated to their work. Mrs González also gave us an insight into the care and commitment which is given to every single dog; from the time it arrives at the refuge by Protection Civil to the time it is adopted, or for its long term stay at the refuge. Every single dog is micro chipped, castrated, passported, fully inoculated and wormed, deflead and treated for heart worm every month. Mrs González spends a lot of time socialising the dogs so they can live happily in small groups of 2 or 3 to a kennel. Every day we sat together and talked about animal welfare and our experiences and feelings. It was very interesting and informative and it has given us a real insight to the world of animal welfare. We painted a mural on one of the walls at the refuge as a token of our thanks for such a great week. It’s made us decide that we would all like future careers with animals. Please call 922 778 630 for more information or if you would like to help out in anyway, towels and blankets are always needed for the dogs if you have any to spare. They would be very much appreciated by our four legged friends. 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 and it is open to the public Monday - Friday 3-6pm

Thought:

• Are the staff happy to continue with any medication or specific requirements? • In the case of cats, the following point applies. Are you happy with the entry system into the cat area? Do you feel there is a risk of escape? • Lastly make sure that your pet is chipped with your up to date details registered. Provide the kennels with a contact phone number for someone who will be on the island while you are away and also your own details for the duration of your holiday. • Find out the payment system works. My personal recommendation is to ensure that the majority of the bill is paid at the end to provide further incentive to the staff to care for your pet. Deposits are perfectly acceptable, however. At the end of the day we all want the best for our pets and want to be safe in the knowledge that they will be happy and safe while we are away.

Numerous small dogs are looking for homes ranging from Canichi type breeds to Cocker Spaniels. Each dog has been rescued from a particularly bad situation and so desperately needs a new start with plenty of love. If you can help please call 672 917 193.

of the process is cutting down a lot of trees, adding expense and perhaps jeopardising existing plants or gardens. Perhaps this is not the theme for your garden…). If you find your theme to be a little out of sync with the rest of the garden then creating a garden room screened away from the rest of the design is your best bet (what I usually do with Japanese gardens); this is a great way to get the best of both worlds…I often theme the gardens I design as a great way to personalise them; I also find that the restriction of palette that a specific theme brings can simplify and speed the design process considerably. The existing conditions in the garden can be modified (our butterfly garden example again), but I usually like to find plants and structures that both complement and work with the existing environment. If an area is boggy we could spend vast quantities of time and money to drain or raise that area, but how much easier (and cheaper and better for the environment) to put in a rain garden with plants that not only embrace the wet conditions, but provide habitat for the denizens of such locales. The same goes when considering light, soil and other environmental modifiers; if it’s shady let’s plant shade plants, not cut down trees. If it’s sandy, rather than spend time and money amending soil, let’s pick those trees, shrubs, and perennials that are happy in sandy conditions…

a huge palatial abode and then running down to garden centre to buy 300 Euros worth of two gallon, foot and a half tall shrubs that will take two decades to make any sense in the landscape, or using shrubs (like catawbiense rhododendrons) in the foundation planting, that in ten years will engulf the side of your house, blotting the light of the sun from the first floor of your home. Do we really want to plant that Colorado blue spruce twenty feet from our little cottage, knowing that in twenty years it will be thirty feet in diameter and twice that tall? I always think of a little (1400 sq. ft.) ranch I know that the owner, obviously wishing to draw attention to his estate, placed two 8’ Victorian style, three globe lampposts (no sign of Victorian styling anywhere else, although the rusting truck in the driveway looked as if it may have been close to that vintage), and another right by the front door. I’m sure he was going for that Main Street, USA look, but in his 100’ x 30’ front yard it looked like other parts of Disneyland instead. Keep in mind the scope of the landscape and the eventual size of the plant material; this will keep you happy with the final design decades later. A word about garden themes A garden theme can be a wonderful way to start the design process, but too often the theme can begin to override other considerations and become forced (Butterfly gardening is a wonderful idea, but if you have partial to full shade the first part

The garden that resembles nature The scope of Western landscape design up to this point has been about man dominating nature, a natural reaction for societies that have grown by colonisation, wresting living space from a “hostile” wilderness. It seemed a natural extension of that “civilising” process to create garden spaces that showed the hand of man rather than the underlying nature that the garden truly embodies (it is interesting to note that the insular societies of Asia took an entirely different approach by designing gardens that embodied and represented nature, despite the fact that they were generally more contrived than their Western counterparts). In this modern age of global industrialisation, the chances of being eaten by a bear are far outweighed by the dangers of losing touch with the natural world. I believe it is time for Western garden style to take a page from the Asian

Welcome back to our landscape design tutorial. Style How we want our garden design to look… Structures: What kind of building are we designing around? (This should be a primary concern for design). Scale: How big a garden are we building? How does it relate to existing structures? Themes: Are there specific themes we want to use? Specific plants? Colours? Existing features: Are we keeping trees? Shrubs? Walls? Paths? (Etc., etc…) Environment: What kind of soil do we have? Sun or shade? Moisture? Maintenance: How much time are we willing to spend in our garden? How much time do we really have to spend in our garden? How much work are we willing to tackle? How much are we actually capable of doing? Styling a garden to its surroundings I am often horrified by the designs I see that have not taken the architecture they surround into account; English cottage gardens around modern ranch homes, overly formal gardens around small cottages… I know that it is easy to fall in love with a particular style of garden and not have the right architecture to support that style; I am a huge fan of Japanese gardens and I don’t exactly have a sukiya style home. If that type of situation arises for you, try to find ways to meld the styles together. I am often reminded of my friend Bob Bonneville’s garden where he set his tea garden a distance from his house and as he moved closer to his home, masterfully morphed from Japanese to a traditional Western style that became brick walkway and formal hedges with hardly a bump along the way. Gradual changes in plant material and planting style make the transitory area of his gardens one of my favourite parts of the whole thing; with a little thought you can do the same and keep your chosen style and your architecture compatible. Another key point to consider here is scale. I caution against the oft repeated mistakes of building

styles and work with nature rather than subjugating it. I believe that the starting point is working within the confines of the site, finding strategies that suit both nature and man in the same garden. Keeping that in mind, it is often the case to be renovating the landscape rather than starting from scratch. While this may appear at first glance to simplify the design process, the reality is that you have the added challenge of incorporating design concepts not of your choosing, necessitating either a lot of thought to understanding where the previous “designer” was going, or ripping out (and perhaps redistributing) a lot of plant material (most designers are much happier with the tabla rasa , or blank slate; it allows for the fresh idea to extend to the entire design). While this is not so difficult where you were the previous designer, it is often easier to wipe the slate and start over if you cannot understand (or for that matter, stand) the ideas of the previous owner (this is one of those decisions often foisted upon designers with the casual “Oh, and I really want to keep those lilacs, as they were my dad’s…”; now you have a plant that will dominate the visual plane in a place that you did not choose, so you are cemented into a design decision for that area that may have received little, if any, thought to the effect of the mature plant on the landscape). Sentimentality has ruined far more gardens than it has helped; do not become too attached to any part so that it impinges on the whole.

Planning a Colour Scheme Excellent & Easy Garden

Start planning your scheme with that indispensable tool, the mood board. Using a mood board will give you a direction for your creativity, somewhere to crystallise your thoughts and a way to share your ideas with others. Begin by choosing your main base colour from a colour wheel. This might be a colour you particularly like. Most people are always drawn to a certain colour. Look around you, what colour do you wear the most? Is there a colour that you’d love to wear but doesn’t suit you that you’d love on your walls instead? It is rare we get a total free rein or start with a totally blank slate, the base colour might be dictated by something you’re stuck with such as a grey carpet or an avocado bathroom suite. However, this doesn’t have to hold you back. Use the colour wheel to look at what colours go with this colour and decide whether to go for a tonal, harmonious, or complementary scheme.

reminiscent of the sea. Or you may want to nudge your family to get going in the morning and inject some energy with splashes of zesty acid pastels. Take your inspiration from nature. You may want your dining room to be smart and formal for lots of corporate entertaining with navy blue or you may want a relaxed, informal feel where all the family can chill. A chic, contemporary bedroom could be conjured from layering neutrals or create a dramatic boudoir with purples and reds. Play around with lighting to create moods for different situations, for example, romantic, practical, formal, entertaining etc Linking rooms with colour You may have loads of ideas for different colour schemes in each room of your house and be dying to give them all a try. But stop and think of the overall effect when all the doors are open and you can see into each room. In a smaller house this can tend to look a bit of a mish-mash. If you’d like to draw the whole scheme together, choose an overall colour for the entire house and then use it in different ways in each room. Larger houses are slightly more forgiving as long as you pay attention to the meeting points. Choose harmonious colours. You could paint one room blue, the adjacent one a greenyblue, the next purple, etc. Alternatively stick to one colour but use a different tone of it for each room, for example, going from a pale shade of blue to a dark one. This works especially well if your rooms open into one another. If one room is wallpapered, try picking out one shade from it to paint the next room or

Storage Bench – Part 4 Welcome to part four of our easy guide to building a useful garden bench. Step 15: Finish to your taste I used a two-in-one primer/outdoor wood finishing product, but you will know what is right for you.

Step 16: Attach the seat lid with hinges Once the paint is all dry, just attach the seat with your hinges and you are DONE! use the background colour of the wallpaper as your base colour. To unify your whole house, keep all the woodwork the same colour - preferably white. If you are going for neutrals on your walls, get some paint mixed up for your woodwork that is a ratio of one part of your neutral colour with three parts white. You can use the same shade on your ceiling. Don’t forget the colour on the opening side of the door into the next room - it doesn’t have to match but pick a shade that won’t jar. Before you start Once you’ve done your mood board and

decided on your colour(s) you are ready to go. But before you start painting: Buy some tester pots of your chosen colour. Use the whole pot and paint quite a big stretch of wall (no smaller than four feet square). Don’t paint lots of different striped colours in a rainbow. Paint onto pieces of non-absorbent white paper and stick onto the wall. Leave the sheets up for a few days, move them round the room and look at the paints in all lights. See Light and Colour Remember if you want to keep up with fashion but don’t want to have to start from scratch every time, keep the floor and large items of expenditure, such as the sofa, in a neutral colour. That way you can simply change the colour of the walls and accessories.

For best results, choose one of the following schemes: Tonal - use just one colour but varying tones of it throughout a room or use more than one colour but all with the same depth of tone. Harmonious - pick colours next to each other or near each other on the wheel. These schemes generally give a look that’s easy to live with and are tranquil and restful. Complementary - or ‘contrasting’ colours lie opposite each other on the colour wheel. Complementary colours generally inject some life into a scheme, are more daring and will make more of an impact but might not be so easy to live with. Create a mood Colour is the easiest and most effective way of instantly creating a mood for every room in your home. Try using warm, advancing colours in areas where you want people to feel welcomed, such as living rooms, dining rooms and halls. You may want to make your bathroom a relaxing, stress free spa with watery colours

Before decorating, spend time gathering together samples of your favourite materials and pictures of inspirational room designs. Spending time now planning a room should save time later on and help to avoid decorating mistakes. Pictures of rooms you like Cut out any pictures you like from magazines and books (not just interiors), and collect fabric and paint swatches. If you fall in love with a beautiful blue wall in a magazine picture, look at all the other elements that make up that particular room. Perhaps it has a beautiful oak floor or woodwork? Arranging the mood board Lay out your samples in the general order of the room - position the carpet at the bottom, soft furnishing samples in the middle, and curtain material near the top of the board. This will give you a much clearer idea than sticking samples randomly over the board. Choosing the right shade If you were to go for the exact same shade as you’ve seen somewhere else, would it look the same in your home? Think also about what you’re using the room for - it may sound obvious, but you won’t be able to relax in a riot of clashing colours. Size of samples The size of each sample should reflect how much space it will take up in reality; for example, have a much larger piece of paint swatch than cushion fabric. This way you can get an idea of how the colours and textures will work together. You could make one for every room in the house.

Welcome to Karoline’s Kitchen Jubilee Week has arrived: Britain is going crazy with street parties and events to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II´s 60th year on the throne. So why not join in with the celebrations with some of my Jubilee recipes? Get your family and friends together and have a party or have a look through Tenerife Weekly and check out where you can join in the fun.

Homemade Quiche

For the pastry

175g/6oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting A pinch of salt 75g/2¾oz butter, plus extra for greasing

For the filling

250g/9oz English cheddar, grated 4 tomatoes, sliced 200g/7oz bacon, chopped 5 eggs, beaten 100ml milk 200ml double cream salt and pepper A pinch of dried herbs of your choice To make the pastry, sift the flour together

Coronation Chicken 2 chicken breasts, skin removed 1 tbsp olive oil 1 lemon, juice and zest sea and pepper knob of butter 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 2 teaspoons madras curry powder 2 tbsp tomato puree 100ml dry white wine 100ml chicken stock Mayonnaise 1 tbsp of mango chutney 1 ripe mango, diced (optional)

No street party is complete without a lovely homemade quiche, much better than a bought one and a real crowd pleaser. Coronation chicken is great as a dish on its own, or fill vol-au-vents or sandwiches with the tasty chicken mixture. And a party wouldn’t be complete without cucumber sandwiches and a cupcake.

with a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter until you have a soft breadcrumb texture. Add enough cold water to make the crumb mixture come together to form a firm dough, and then rest it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Roll out the pastry on a light floured surface and line a 22cm/8½inch well-buttered flan dish. Chill again. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Remove the pastry case from the fridge and line the base of the pastry with baking parchment and then fill it with baking beans. Place on a baking tray and bake blind for 20 minutes. Remove the beans and parchment and return to the oven for another five minutes to cook the base.

Turn down the oven to 160C/325F/ Gas 3. Sprinkle the cheese into the pastry base and add the sliced tomatoes. Fry the bacon pieces until crisp and sprinkle them over the top of the cheese. Mix the eggs with the milk and cream in a bowl and season well. Pour over the bacon and cheese. Sprinkle the herbs over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Stir in the mango chutney and stock, continue to simmer until the volume of the liquid has reduced by half. Set aside to cool. Mix the mayonnaise with the curry dressing. Fold in the fresh mango, spring onions, lemon juice and coriander. Cut the chicken into bitesized pieces. Fold this into the mayonnaise mixture. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and tabasco to taste.

Rub the olive oil all over the chicken. Scatter over the lemon zest and season with the salt and black pepper. Steam the chicken for 2025 minutes, or until cooked through, then set aside to cool. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the shallot and chilli and fry for five minutes. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tomato purée and cook for a

Tenerife Weekly - 1st June - 7th June 2012 TECHNOPHILE

Ultra High Definition Marks Dawning Of ‘New Age’ For TV

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has recommended a new standard for ‘Ultra High Definition Television’ (UHDTV), heralding what it claims is an “earth-shaking development” for television viewing. Last week, the global regulatory body announced the new standard, developed in collaboration with experts from the TV industry, broadcasters and regulatory institutions in its Study Group 6. Following the shift from standard to high definition TV, the next evolution in picture technology is thought by many to be UHDTV, capable of delivering a picture up to 16 times sharper than normal HD. The ITU has recommended a new UHDTV standard that sets the first level of pictures at the so-called ‘4K’, with the equivalent of 8 megapixels and a pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160. The next level would be ‘8K’, delivering the equivalent of about 32 megapixels at a screen resolution of 7680 x 4320. Despite the massive difference in signal quality, the ITU has decided to include both levels in the new standard. The latter 8K level will be used by the BBC on three big screens in the UK for

the London Olympics this summer, using a system known as Super Hi-Vision. In a statement, the ITU said that its new UHDTV standard has now been submitted to administrations for approval. Alongside being significantly sharper than HD (which has the equivalent of 1 to 2 megapixels), “[UHDTV picture quality] is accompanied by improved colour fidelity, and options for higher numbers of pictures per second than for today’s television systems,” said the ITU. ITU secretary-general Hamadoun Touré praised the work of ITU-R Study Group 6, and described UHDTV as an “earth-shaking development in the world of television”. “Watching UHDTV in the near future will be a breath-taking experience, and I look forward to it,” Dr Touré said. David Wood, the chairman of ITU-R Working Party 6C, declared: “This is the dawn of a new age for television that will bring unprecedented levels of realism and viewer enjoyment. It’s a historic moment. Some years will pass before we see these systems in our homes, but come they will. The die is now cast, thanks to the untiring efforts of the international experts

Viewsonic 22-Inch Android Tablet Rumoured For 2012

ViewSonic is rumoured to unveil a 22-inch Android tablet for release sometime in 2012. The California-based manufacturer is expected to showcase the device at the Computex event in Taiwan next week. ViewSonic’s tablet will be the largest of its kind should the reports prove accurate. The company is aiming the hardware towards the business sector, billing it as the ideal device to aid presentations. The 22-inch slate, dubbed the “smart

business tablet monitor”, will allegedly run Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system; though no hardware specs have been revealed. ViewSonic also plans to showcase a Windows 8 multi-touch display, new cloud computing tech, laser projectors and interactive billboards at Computex, which takes place between June 5 and June 9. It is yet to be confirmed whether the over-sized tablet will be released in the UK and other overseas territories.

foxL v2 Bluetooth Portable Speaker

The foxL v2 is one of just a few portable speakers that claim to be for the true audiophile, addressing the misconception that portable speakers are bad. The foxL v2 Bluetooth is a portable speaker that plans to change the way you feel about portable speakers. Boasting some truly premium hardware under the shell, the foxL v2 Bluetooth exists to prove the myth wrong. foxL v2 Bluetooth specs start with two 1-inch patented Twoofers which have been tuned to 100Hz giving them both a range that will allow a full eight octaves of uncompromised clear audio. On the back is another feature unique to the foxL v2 which is a Bass Radiator, both accenting the bass response, but also

giving the bass range an additional lower octave. Musical Fidelity claim the foxL v2 has a 12-hour battery life and will offer up hands free calling thanks to Bluetooth 2.0 A2DP. The foxL v2 will be available in the second half of June.

participating in WP6C.” François Rancy, the director of ITU’s Radio communication Bureau, said: “I’ve personally seen the pictures with 8K UHDTV system, and it’s absolutely stunning - the sense of being there is superb. This agreement shows the great and continuing strength of the ITU-R and Study Group 6.” The BBC has said that ultra-high definition could be a “better long-term

49

prospect” than 3D, but this would depend on bringing down the currently-massive cost of producing sets that can handle the signal, along with the heavy bandwidth requirements of the broadcasts. Japanese broadcaster NHK, which will run the Super Hi-Vision trials at the Olympics with the BBC, expects to offer Super HiVision to homes in Japan by 2022.

‘Mario Tennis Open’ Review (3DS): An Uninspired Handheld Sequel

Camelot has an excellent track record when it comes to handheld Mario sports titles. Mario Golf and Mario Tennis both turned out to be engrossing and surprisingly deep experiences on the Game Boy Colour and Game Boy Advance, fusing traditional sports gameplay with RPG elements and a story mode. Mario Tennis Open on the Nintendo 3DS is the latest Mario tennis spinoff, but in an interesting move, the game does away with the satisfying character progression seen in its predecessors. Instead, it chooses to rely on the core gameplay as players advance through a linear series of progressively tougher singles or doubles tournaments. The usual cast of Mario characters are available, each one slightly differing in style. While Mario and Luigi are all-rounders, for example, Yoshi and Diddy Kong have the edge in speed. Players can also use their own Mii, and kit them out with gear unlocked and bought by competing in matches and indulging in mini-games. Clothing and racquets boost different stats, and though there is no easy way to compare two items, this level of customisation is welcome. There are three different control methods, the most traditional of which involves using the face buttons to hit the ball. Naturally, your player can hit flat, top spin or slice shots as well as lobbing or executing a drop shot with the different buttons. Alternatively, you can use the touch screen, which is divided into a number of sections that can be touched, each one representing their respective shot type.

The third method utilises the gyro sensor. By holding the 3DS upright, the game shifts to a zoomed-in camera angle behind your player. Though you still hit your shots using the buttons or the touch screen, you aim by angling the 3DS. Movement is automatically taken care of for you as the player runs to what the game perceives to be the optimal place to stand, though this can be overridden if you desire with the control stick. On one hand, the gyro sensor may help to make the game more accessible. But on the other, the way you hold the handheld device is awkward, control feels more limited and the camera angle is less than ideal for playing a competitive match as you do not get to see the whole court. The gameplay itself is competent if not particularly deep. It’s easy to pick up and play and even the Chance Areas can be made extremely easy as one button will automatically nail it for you. The tennis is also grounded in reality a little more than some of the craziness in 2005’s Mario Tennis: Power Tour on Game Boy Advance. Sadly, the single-player is lacklustre. Firstly, the format is highly repetitive - win one tournament, and you unlock the next one. The eight tournaments are disappointingly similar, both in their setup (they’re all brackets of eight) and the various courts themselves.. Colourful as they may be, the courts barely impact the way the match is played out. Grass or clay, there is no reason whatsoever to alter your playing style.

MOTORING

Toyota GT-86

So absolutely has the company hung its hat on the environmentallyconscientious peg of hybrid drive technology of late that, until the arrival of this new 2+2, the fastest accelerating production Toyota was… Ta-daaah! The Land Cruiser V8. Mercifully, and not before time, the new 2012 Toyota GT86 changes all that. But only just… Because, drawing on a long heritage of front engine, rear-wheel drive sports cars that includes the beautiful 2000GT (the top of which was lopped off in You Only Live Twice merely so that Sean Connery could fit on board) and the somewhat lumpen, but eagerly customised AE86, the world’s most compact fourseater sports car is actually not that quick. The GT86 is a joint project between Subaru and Toyota. Its engine bay plays host to the former’s legendary 2.0-litre boxer engine, fettled by the latter to produce 197bhp and 151lb ft of torque without recourse to super- or turbocharging. The

upshot is a 0-62mph dash despatched in a fairly modest 7.7 seconds, and a top speed of some 137mph. Satisfactory, rather than jaw-snapping… Outright performance, however, is not the point here. The GT86 spent its gestation inhaling Weightwatchers protein drinks, and weighs in at just 1239kg. Combine a healthy power-to-weight ratio with a perfect driving position, a centre of gravity lower than a Porsche Cayman, a sweetly balanced chassis, a short throw (if somewhat nuggety) six-speed gearshift and nicely weighted, accurate steering and, even in the hands of a rank amateur, you have a recipe for fun. At £24,995 (30,900 Euros), relatively affordable fun to boot. The handling bit At one level, the GT86 delivers absolutely on its promis;, with beautiful composure, balance and accuracy belying the need to pour monstrous gouts of power through the rear wheels to extract entertainment. Especially since Toyota has equipped the

car with the same relatively skinny rubber as that with which the puritanical Prius is shod. Ironically, though, it’s the GT86’s very lack of power, or, to put it more precisely, low-end torque, that makes the car a less wholesome proposition for the target market – amateur enthusiasts who haven’t got a fortune to spend on their thrills than intended. And that’s because the chassis is so good you have to be going at a pretty serious lick to extract the traction control off, tail-out drifting fun available. Track performance is largely irrelevant, because you have the full width of the road at your disposal and know that nothing’s going to be coming the other way. But on the road, you don’t, which restricts drifting diversions to

corners you can see through. Sadly, the GT86’s lack of torque means that, in second gear corners such as the occasional hairpin, there’s barely enough low-down grunt to budge a surprisingly sticky back end, whilst, in third gear corners you’ll be going at quite a lick, making efforts to hang the tail out a somewhat daunting prospect for the potentially ham-fisted amateur at whom this car is so squarely aimed. Verdict Bizarrely, then, what we have here a is very fine sports car indeed, actually shackled by the quality of its own dynamic abilities: amateurs will want more grunt to extract traction-free entertainment at lower speeds, the more talented will want more grunt because… well, they always do.

O’Connor Committed To T i g e r s

Leicester have dismissed reports linking head coach Matt O’Connor to the vacant position at the Western Force. The Perth-based franchise are currently looking for a new coach after sacking Richard Graham in April following his announcement he would be joining the Reds for the 2013 Super Rugby season. However the Tigers insist that O’Connor, who has previously worked with the Brumbies and Australia A, is going nowhere

Rodgers New Favourite for Liverpool Job

- and is instead looking at extending his stay at Welford Road beyond the end of his current deal next year. “Matt has not applied for the job and he has no intention of taking it,” said director of rugby Richard Cockerill. “In fact, I have already started discussing the possibility of him extending his contract and staying here for longer.”

BOA Demands Answers Over Snub

The British Olympic Association has asked British Taekwondo for ‘further clarification’ over Aaron Cook’s Olympics squad exclusion. The 21-year-old has appealed after failing to secure an under-80kg berth, having retained his European title in Manchester in early May. He was overlooked for Lutalo Muhammad, who would have to drop down a weight for the Games.

But the BOA has refused to ratify Muhammad’s nomination. A BOA statement read: ‘With respect to the nomination in the Men’s Under-80kg weight category the Olympic Qualification Standards panel is requesting a meeting at the earliest possible opportunity with the GB Taekwondo Selection Committee.’ Cook took to Twitter to say: ‘Encouraging news. Thank you BOA. The

dream is still alive...’ He has said he felt his decision to go it alone, away from British Taekwondo’s World Class Performance Programme, counted against him. A GB Taekwondo statement said: ‘We will continue to work with the BOA to finalise the fourth selection place, in the interests of the athletes concerned and the wider team.’

Retiring Vadim Evseev Replaced By Five-Year-Old

Near to the end of his last match, Russian defender Vadim Evseev was called off the pitch and replaced by a five-year-old boy. The 36-year-old has played professional football since 1993, but he was outshone by the youngster who single-handedly scored a goal against the opposing team. The youngster who was lucky enough to live the dreams of many of his peers is believed to be Hrisan Dzheus, who is the son of a director for a Russian children’s charity. After running onto the pitch, he wasted no time in attacking, holding onto the ball and making his way towards the goalmouth. The players slowed down to a walk beside Hrisan, pretending to attempt a tackle on the youngster. However, despite their fake attempts, he scored a goal on the professional pitch with one swift kick

Mcilroy and Donald Grouped To g e t h e r

sending the ball past the goalie, who dived to the floor. This goal put Evseev’s team, Torpedo Zhodino, 5-1 up. It is believed Hrisan was invited into the professional game as a thank you to his hardworking father, and it was clear that retiring Evseev did not mind sharing the spotlight with this young soccer star.

The former Reading boss, who originally turned down the chance to speak to Reds owners, Fenway Sports Group, now appears firmly back in the frame for the Anfield hot-seat and has been installed as the new bookmakers’ favourite to replace the sacked Kenny Dalglish. The 39-year-old is due to sit down with Swans chief Jenkins, but the club insist the meeting is simply ‘routine’ and any link between Rodgers and Liverpool are still speculative. ‘We would like to confirm that there has been no contact from Liverpool and nothing has changed since our previous statement on the issue,’ said Swansea in a statement on their website. Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was being strongly tipped to take over at

Liverpool after talks with FSG in Miami last week, but the Spaniard refused to comment on his situation when he arrived back in the country following a family holiday in Barbados. Football trader Joe Petyt said he expects Rodgers to be given the Anfield job, after seeing significant sums of money being placed on the Northern Irishman. ‘When Martinez was photographed with FSG’s John Henry in America he became the strong favourite, but even during that time we saw sustained

money for Rodgers,’ said Petyt. ‘In the last 24 hours the amount of money we’ve seen on Rodgers has increased substantially which indicates to us that some people have heard that he’s going to take the job.’ Wigan chairman, Dave Whelan added: ‘If it is true that Liverpool want to speak with Brendan Rodgers it proves they don’t know who they want as manager. I hope they choose Brendan Rodgers.’

Mario Monti: Suspend Football I n I t a l y F o r T h r e e Ye a r s

Italy’s Prime Minister, Mario Monti, has called for football in the country to be suspended for ‘two to three’ years after the latest match-fixing scandal. Mr Monti said the idea was a question he was asking ‘as someone who was passionate when football was still football’. Lazio captain Stefano Mauri was held after a raid on Italy’s pre-Euro 2012 training camp, one of several resulting in 14 arrests on Monday. Zenit St Petersburg defender Domenico Criscito has also been left out of the country’s 23-man squad in order to ‘clear his name’. Monti expressed a ‘profound sadness’ after 30 homes of people connected to Serie A and Serie B, as well as the lower leagues, were searched, with Juventus coach Antonio Conte - who recently led Juventus to the Scudetto - among those questioned. ‘I wonder if it wouldn’t be a good idea to suspend the game for two or three years, the premier said. ‘It’s particularly sad when a world which

Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy will go head-to-head in the first two rounds of the Memorial tournament at Muirfield Village in Ohio. The pair have been vying for the number one ranking for much of the past year, with Donald re-taking top spot with victory at Wentworth last week. McIlroy missed the cut there - his second in a row - but said on social network Twitter he is looking forward to a better week. “Getting some great work done here on the range at Memorial... Looking forward to a good week at one of my favourite events of the year!” said the Northern Irishman, who will only return to number one if he wins and Donald finishes worse than 13th. The pair will be joined on the first two days by USPGA champion Keegan Bradley. Tiger Woods is also in the field, as are Masters

T h e H i g h e s t P r a i s e Torch Back at ‘Birthplace’

England’s bowling coach David Saker has compared James Anderson and Graeme Swann to Australia greats Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne. When McGrath and Warne retired in 2007 they had a combined tally of 1,271 test wickets, a total Saker’s current colleagues - who currently share 455 - cannot hope to replicate. But Anderson’s mastery of controlled swing bowling and Swann’s ever-reliable brand of finger spin have played a large part in propelling England to number one in the world, leaving Melbourneborn Saker, who could not break into Australia’s Test side, to talk up their ability. “When Jimmy and Swann bowl together it is not unlike McGrath and Warnie at times,” said Saker. “McGrath and Warne in tandem were amazing, but I have seen some spells from Jimmy and Swanny that have been just as good or better at times. In Sri Lanka (earlier this year) there were a couple of times, especially late on day four in the second Test, when those two reminded me so much of McGrath and Warne. They put so much pressure on the SL batting group and the

wickets fell. We should be saying our group is as good as them.” Anderson is currently ranked third in the International Cricket Council’s bowling rankings, with Swann one place behind in fourth. England also has Stuart Broad in sixth and Tim Bresnan, up 10 places to 15th, and Saker believes the strength in depth of their attack is also reminiscent of the all-conquering Australia side of the 90s and early 2000s. “The Australians were stand-out bowlers, a great group for a long time and they also had a world-class spinner. You can compare them,” he said. “ McGrath was the stand-out in that group but they had Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Andy Bichel...they were all fantastic bowlers. “This group is very skilful too. What they do really well

“What a fantastic day at Camping Nauta!” was the call from everyone attending the “Wild Bull Coast FM darts Doubles KO”. Over 82 players entered the Competition; and the combination of darts and the Coast FM Live Show gave us Sunday afternoons as it should be: FUN, PARTY & DARTS. 1st division: Winners’ round: Winners: Ben & Nathan (Our Place B) Runner Up: Luc & Marnix (Café Rood) Ben and Nathan from Our Place B, who are the young guns talent of our darts league, beat the more experienced players Luc & Marnix from Café Rood; with a well-deserved 3-1 score line. Along with their trophies Ben & Nathan now face World darts legends John Lowe and Bob Anderson with Sky TV’s Russ Bray, the MC at Chipeque Pool Bar, on the 16th September

is assess conditions quickly. They will see if it is swinging and, if so, they will stick to our original plans. If it is not doing that, they will come up with some other plan. They are very good at talking out in the middle. Stuart and Jimmy are very good at that and they pass on that message to the rest of the group. They are very skilful - to be able to bowl conventional swing and they say ‘this is not going to work’ and then switch to reverse and attack in different ways - that is a huge weapon to have.” Team director Andy Flower and the national selectors are currently pondering whether to rest the likes of Anderson and Broad for the third Test at Edgbaston, with the series already won and an exhausting schedule ahead of the side for the rest of the summer.

In 1850, the small country town began celebrating the Wenlock Olympian Games, one of the most influential forerunners of the Modern Olympics. Then in 1890, International Olympic Committee founder Baron Pierre de Coubertin visited Wenlock and cited the town’s games as an inspiration for the first modern Olympics celebrated in 1896 in Athens. The brainchild of local surgeon Dr William Penny Brooks, the Wenlock games are still celebrated in the town each year. The original festival involved a variety of athletics events, with country sports such as cricket, quoits and football. Dr Brooks created it to “promote the moral, physical

and intellectual improvement of the inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood of Wenlock, and especially of the working classes, by the encouragement of outdoor recreation and by the award of a prize”. In honour of the town’s contribution to the creation of the Games, one of the two mascots of the London 2012 Olympics is named Wenlock. The other mascot is named Mandeville in honour of the Stoke Mandeville Games, the forerunner of the Paralympic Games. The flame will start its journey at Chester during the 12th day of its tour of the UK, before visiting towns such as Wrexham and ending the day in Stoke-on-Trent.

by Bill and Davy and made it through the entire losers plate rounds. Unfortunately we couldn’t find our Runners up, Tom & Carl from Meigas, after the match to have their picture taken. 2nd division: Winners’ round: Winners: Betty & Conny (Rood). Runner Up: Andy & Ricky (La Central) This final must have been the most exciting match of the day; especially with the atmosphere in full flow. Every supporter was shouting, singing and dancing while the game was still on. Betty & Conny were 2-0 ahead but Andy & Ricky “LA Central” was mentally strong enough to bring it back to 2-2. The final and deciding leg could have gone both ways, but the 2 ladies from Bar Rood stood firm and deserved to be the Winners of this great match of darts. Along with their trophies, Betty & Connie now also face World darts legends John Lowe and Bob Anderson with Sky TVs Russ Bray the MC at Chipeque Pool Bar, on the 16th September.

2nd division Losers’ round plate: Winners: Jacky (Beesnees Hunnies) & Filipe (El Candil de la Abuela) Runner Up: Dawn & Richard (Legends) Jacky & Filipe survived the entire losers round plate and were the unexpected winners. Jacky admitted she was not playing her best the whole day, except for the final match, where she threw some great darts. Filipe said he was in the 7th heaven but he’s got every right to be proud of his (their) victory. It seemed almost everyone stayed glued to the action, as various interviews gave the kiss of death to many of the favourites throughout the day. The crowd waited with baited breath as the finalists of each division unfolded amongst all the excitement. Thanks to Coast FM’s Phil West, who knew exactly how to control decorum in the madness, as well as entertain the crowd with the right music and darts tunes for the sing along, in what could be an outside broadcasting first …….live darts on the Radio???

The Sports Scene With Peter Quilty

Hi Everyone. Just when you thought it was all over; in come the penalties, and plenty of them. Even goalkeepers having to do their bit, or in one case, not. Covering the game of Huddersfield v Sheffield Utd, on the radio, for the promotion to the Championship; I kept looking at the Flashscore screen: still nil – nil. Extra time: still nil-nil, and although I am not a fan of the penalty shoot out thing I must admit, you don’t see many of these; every member of the team step up to take a kick. Huddersfield missed their first three kicks, with Miller, Damien Johnson and Lee all failing to convert; while Lee Williamson and Matthew Lowton missed for the Blades, either side of Neill Collins’s successful kick. Clarke then scored for the Terriers and Andy Taylor; brought on specifically for the shoot-out with seconds left, hit the post. The next six takers for each side all scored their kicks before Smithies, who only played after first-choice Ian Bennett failed a late fitness test on a hand injury, became the Terriers’ hero and Simonsen the villain for the Blades. But if either side deserved to edge through after a stiflingly cagey 120 minutes it was Huddersfield, beaten by Peterborough in last year’s final at Old Trafford and semifinal, losers the previous season, after the West Yorkshire outfit created far more chances. Even Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson could not watch any of the 22 nerve-shredding penalties which eventually saw his side secure promotion back to the nPower Championship. Grayson only took over Huddersfield in February, replacing Lee Clark just 20 days after being sacked himself by Leeds. But he will now get the chance to return to Elland Road with Huddersfield next season after securing his third promotion from League One as a manager. And even more penalties for the fairer sex. Yes it was the Ladies FA Cup final and what a cracking final it was, with Karen Carney, who led her hometown club to their first FA Women’s Cup final triumph. Helen Lander and Kate Longhurst twice put Chelsea ahead at Ashton Gate. But Rachel Williams hit back in the dying seconds and Lander’s extra-time free- kick forced the shootout. Carney, Rachel Unitt and Jodie Taylor all netted from the spot to clinch victory. It was certainly better to watch than England’s friendly; although I didn’t

get to watch the match due to prior arrangements, and I must admit that I wasn’t all that bothered and, according to my soccer pundits Martin and Chris, I didn’t miss a great deal. Our New 3 Lions manager, Roy Hogdson, gave us a 1 goal win; but it did not instill in me that we will do well at the Euros. Our new manager stating that he cannot wait to start working with Wayne Rooney. The Manchester United striker is the key figure in the future plans of the new England boss. The trouble is, where the Euros are concerned, it might be all over before Roo even gets started. Hodgson is working on getting England through the first two games, against France and Sweden any way he can while Rooney is suspended. Then the manager’s Eurovision is that Roo will explode on the scene in the final group game against Ukraine.

The performance against Norway with Andy Carroll and Ashley Young, as his twin strike force, gave Hodgson some hope that his team can do enough to get England off to a decent start. When Rooney returns he will pair up with Carroll, or possibly Old Trafford team-mate Danny Welbeck, while Young will be sent back out to the left wing where he usually plays for United. The good news is England will not be burdened with the pressure of expectation in this summer’s competition. But at least they won against a country which has embarrassed the Three Lions in the past. In fact, this was a first success over Norway for 32 years. Hodgson has one game to find out, which is this Saturday’s encounter with a more than capable Belgium. “There’s a lot of football to be played after the Euros,” remarked Hodgson as he made it clear he believes the World Cup is where his team will come to fruition. Sounds like Engelbert Humperdinck may not be the end of our disappointments in Europe. Last week I mentioned the Rugby, which I did enjoy, and this weekend’s games did not disappoint either, with a great game at Tickenham where Captain Marvel Chris Robshaw inspired Quins to Premiership title

glory at Twickenham. The England skipper capped a manof-the-match display with a try to lead the Londoners to their first crown. It also completed a remarkable season for Robshaw that started in despair at being left out of the World Cup squad, but ended in triumph. In the Magic Weekend of Rugby League there was some outstanding scores, to say the least, and I watched the part of the St Helens v Wigan game where Gareth Hock sparked a shameful brawl that saw Three sendings-off, as Magic Weekend ended in controversy.

The Wigan star was red-carded by ref Ben Thaler for starting a 53rd-minute punch-up with Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook at a scrum. Then Warriors’ Chris Tuson and Saints’ Shaun Magennis were ordered off for wading in and trading blows. Until tempers flared, Sam Tomkins’ sensational 60 metre run for his second try was the pick of Wigan’s scores. Josh Charnley (2), Hock, Sean O’Loughlin, Liam Farrell and George Carmont also scored. McCarthyScarsbrook ran in as Saints’ 12 men went after Wigan’s 11 and Manchester City fan Paul Wellens scored at the Etihad to record his 200th Saints try. It’s a Man’s Game Mark Webber claimed victory at the Monaco Grand Prix to become the sixth different winner from the opening six races this season. But it was another weekend to forget for McLaren, with Lewis Hamilton posting a fifth-place finish and Jenson Button failing to complete the race. Nico Rosberg was second and Fernando Alonso came home in

third, one place ahead of Sebastian Vettel. Red Bull’s Webber took full advantage of his pole position and got away cleanly from the start. But the tight Monaco streets quickly claimed their first few victims as early as the first turn. Michael Schumacher, who actually qualified on pole but had a five-place grid penalty hanging over him from the previous race, for slamming into Bruno Senna, clipped Lotus’ Romain Grosjean. As the two cars bumped wheels, it was the Frenchman who came off worse and his car went into a spin, causing chaos for those behind. Button was one driver who got caught up in the traffic and ended up dropping behind Heikki Kovalainen’s Caterham, while Grosjean was forced to retire. There was more drama to come when Pastor Maldonado, winner of the Spanish Grand Prix, crashed his Williams into the HRT of Pedro de la Rosa, bringing an end to both drivers’ races. The collision meant the safety car was deployed as early as lap two and Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi also saw his race end early with damaged suspension, following his brush with Grosjean. As the drama unfolded behind him, Webber kept his focus and set about posting some quick lap times to pull away from Rosberg to win this one, so is Monaco beginning to show its age? This, after all, Monaco; sanctuary of the rich and famous, host of a lucky few, and home to the most self-indulgent, Jekyll-andHyde event in sport. For them: a showpiece; for those of us left behind: a snooze fest. Barring accident or an unseasonal shower, this is how Monaco always has been, or at least it has felt that way for the past twenty years, and how it will always be. It’s both the best setting in F1 and the worst venue on the calendar. Till next time.
