The Municipal Council of festivals for the Town Hall of Arona is encouraging visitors and residents to take part in the popular and religious events planned for Fiestas de Los Cristianos en Honor a Ntra. Sra. La Virgen del Carmen, which starts today, Friday 23rd, and runs up to and including 3rd September 2013. Well, as you will have seen by our cover, it is Fiesta time, yet again! This time Los Cristianos is hosting celebrations for the Virgen del Carmen, and it promises, as always, to be a brilliant event. There is

Tenerife Weekly - 23rd August 2013 - 29th August 2013 plenty for everyone to do, from religious celebrations, to processions, a huge fair, boat shows and food tasting. If you are here on holiday, try and make some time to see some of the highlights. I can promise you will not be disappointed. Is there something in the water in Benidorm? When will expats realise that they are exactly that – expats. They choose to live where they do, exactly how many of us were forced to live in a foreign country where the climate, food and lifestyle are so much better than where we came from? Unbelievably these idiots want independence from Spain and start up their very one British enclave, an official declaration was made in the Benny Hill

Continued from page 1

Bar – which just about sums it up really! The powers that be in Benidorm’s reaction? If you don’t like it - go back home. I couldn’t agree more. See page 19 An extraordinary report has been published about what things will cost us when Prince George finally claims the throne, around year 2083, see page 21. Apparently we will all be millionaires, which is good, we will have to be, £321 for a pint of milk and raising a child will set you back£5.6 million. Ouch, and you thought things were bad now!

See you all next week.

NEwS ON THE ROCK

“Watch your speed” is good general advice, of course, but it is particularly necessary over the coming week because Tráfico is carrying out a campaign to highlight the role speed plays in accidents and in deaths on the roads. The campaign, being carried out in conjunction with local police, will be targeted at information … and control. There’ll be checkpoints and patrols, so watch your speed. Those who have been fined for illegal letting and who have neither appealed nor paid may already have had letters from Rita Hernández, the Turismo minister responsible for inspections and fines, setting out the fine recovery procedures. Some will not have received anything, however, and anyone in this group needs to check urgently if they have been ordered to Turismo for the procedures to be explained in person. The appearance must be made between 9am and 2pm, Monday to Friday, in Turismo’s offices in Santa Cruz on the 1st floor, number 35 Avenida de Anaga/Francisco La Roche. Sra Hernández says that failure to appear, or failure of those who’ve received letters to reply, will result in the Government proceeding unilaterally to full legal effect to recover the fines. A Ryanair aircraft flight had to return to Tenerife due to mechanical problems. Reina Sofia Airport was on yellow alert for over an hour, but emergency services were not required. The plane left at 6.20 am for Billung in Denmark, but had to turn back minutes later due to a malfunction. The plane finally landed again at Tenerife at 10 past 8 without any problems, after having burnt off some fuel. The plane finally took off again for Denmark just after 10am. According to figures released by the Institute of Tourism Studies (IET) under the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, a total of 2.5 million passengers came to the Canary Islands using “low Cost flights from January until the end of July 2013, down by just 0.5% in comparison to the same period in 2012. Nationally, the low cost airlines accounted for more than half of the air traffic between January and July 2013 with a 54.3% share, compared to the traditional airlines. The UK and German markets led the numbers traveling via low cost airlines, with 33.1% and 18.8% respectively, passengers who chose this method of transport. The British market increased by 4.2% , with over 6.5 million passengers, and Germany rose by 9.2% with a total of 3.7 million passengers. Emergency services received a report on Sunday evening that what appeared to be a body was floating in the sea off the Arico coast. A search and rescue helicopter was dispatched shortly before 9pm and did indeed find the body of a woman near Porís de Abona. At present the cause of death is unknown, and relevant legal and forensic enquiries are already underway to establish what happened. The total number of foreign residents registered at the Social Security offices in the Canary Islands at the end of July 2013 was 74,701 people. This is an increase of 0.96% compared to June 2013 but a decrease of 2,561 contributors (-3.3%) compared with the month of July last 2012 according to data released by the Ministry of Employment. The statement shows that the of the total foreign Social Security affiliates, 39,030 are from countries outside the European Union, and the rest, 35,671 people from EU countries. Of the total number of 74,701 immigrants to register at the Social Security offices, 16,149 registered as ‘self-employed’ and the rest as ‘employed’. Those within the ‘employed’ status, a total of 23,439 foreigners (40.35%), work in the hospitality sector, 15.9% (9,235 affiliates) work in commerce and 7.69% (4,467 contributors) work in administrative activities.

Breathe easy

englishtimeadeje.com HE promised that by his next visit he would be speaking fluent Spanish, and he probably will be.

William Trubridge is an achiever, an achiever with depth! The world champion and double world record holding freediver from New Zealand is currently in Adeje on his fourth training visit, and co-hosted a press conference at the La Caleta Adeje Aquatic School with Adeje mayor Jose Rodriguez Rodriguez Fraga, sports councillor Adolfo Alonso Ferrera and representatives from T3 Tenerife Top Training. Trubridge used the excellent facilities at the Tenerife Top Training centre and was full of praise for the facility as well as Adeje itself, adding his support to the idea that the borough could host a world championship event within two years in the freediving discipline. Freediving is the ability to dive to depths and surface on just one breath without the use of apparatus. Trubridge said that at a recent world event in Serbia the weather was so changeable that the pool temperature dropped by over 20 degrees overnight making conditions for athlete’s really difficult, underling the fact that the excellent reliable climate here is a real plus. The attraction of Adeje as a sporting hub was also stressed by the mayor, saying that sports played a dual role in the borough. Sport, he said, promotes a healthier lifestyle for our residents, as well as promoting a more integrated society, but it also has become a vital element in the tourist offer. The fact that a world class athlete such as William Trubridge was opting to return to Adeje for

regular training was a huge plus. Tenerife Top Training has become one of the top training centres for athletes in many disciplines, from premier league football and rugby teams to individual champions, and is a number one choice for winter training among many European clubs. For swimmers the pool facilities are excellent, and the ‘no chlorine’ waterlight filtration system is appreciated. But the facility is also used by and is open to local residents and tourists – pop in and

see for yourself. The Apnea Academey West Europe in La Caleta is also offering a number of free classes to Adeje residents. On Saturdays they take children from 4-12 years of age for a two-hour swimming session (be at the centre by 11.30am on the morning, the class is from 12 – 2pm), and on Wednesdays and Fridays host free breathing and relaxation classes in the centre from 11.30 – 12.30. But worry not, these classes are held on dry land!

By Marc Craig ast Thursday was my birthday-thanks for all the lovely birthday messages by the way!!

To celebrate we decided to do something I’ve not done in the 13 years I’ve been here; book a hotel in the North and go out to eat in Puerto de la Cruz followed by a few drinks in town! I’ve been, as regular readers know, all over the North of the island, including our capital and I’ve enjoyed the atmosphere of the Carnival in Santa Cruz many times, but even though that was in the evening, for some reason I’d never stayed up there. Anyway, we decided to resolve this and a few weeks back my wife (cos she’s far better at these things than me) booked us into the Blue Sea Interpalace, all inclusive for one night. You won’t believe the bargains you can get if you look on the right websites, I’ve been ordered not to share with you the one we used in case it puts the prices up but trust me, if you look you can find some truly astonishing deals!! So, with the hotel booked and waiting for us, we set off on Tuesday morning, taking yet another scenic route (I’m amazed at how many incredible different routes you can take to the North, we’re still finding new ones to enjoy). This time we chose to go through Chirche, take a right past Guia de Isora, then follow signs through Chirche. Once you’ve driven through this beautiful village, you’ll find the viewing point and restaurante, Mirador Chirche, the views are absolutely breath-taking and the food is said to be excellent.

One Night In Puerto (And The World’s Your Oyster)! Testing the water in an all-inclusive hotel!

soon amongst the busy streets of the lovely capital. I’ve said this before but the north feels very different to the South, it’s certainly more historic and we felt truly “on holiday”. We wandered all over the city streets just enjoying being there I couldn’t seem to find a restaurant I wanted to go to but that’s more likely due to pizza overdose than a lack of choice! Eventually we came across a place called the Pequeña Buda bar and naturally with our love of all things

After a refreshing drink it was easy to get on the road to El Teide, it’s again a superb drive if anyone is wondering where all the people are this year, they’re up there I’ve never seen the national park so busy. We arrived at the hotel at about 1.30pm, it was really easy to find and check-in was a breeze, so we dumped our bags in our basic, but very nice room and down to the dining hall armed with our all-inclusive wrist bands! The buffet lunch was quite extensive with something for everybody, although we were only there for one day, and I’d imagine it wouldn’t change much day to day, so it could be repetitive by the end of your holiday. Full and a bit tired we decided to check the pool out and the pool bar!! It’s a help yourself concept with bottles of local spirits and various drinks dispensers pumping out everything

from tea, coffee, soft drinks, wine, beer and ready mixed cocktails (although the Caipirinha I sampled tasted nothing like the ones I’ve had anywhere else). We found a place to set our towels down, that was when my nose picked up the scent of freshly made pizza (I’m like a ninja turtle with those things), of course it was impossible to resist - you could just help yourself!!! So, now with a belly full of buffet lunch and free pizza we had a lovely relaxed afternoon around the pool (the pool was fine although I have to say the photographer who took the shots for their website was extremely skilled!!) So, back to the hotel room for a quick shower then we were off to explore the restaurants and nightlife that Puerto has to offer! Only a 10 minute walk from the Lido in Puerto de la Cruz, we were

Thai, we decided to check it out. After walking through a long narrow bar we were surprised when it led us out into a vast inner city chill out garden, complete with many plants, Buddha statues and homemade furniture constructed from pallets! They specialised in exotic beers and had a huge list to choose fromafter trying a cherry beer we noticed a list of chupitos for only a euro a shot!! Some of the names were amazing (in Spanish and all hilarious, I won’t translate all of “pis

de pitufo” for you but it’s blue and pitufo means smurf!) after trying a SpongeBob square pants, a horny cow and how could I leave without sampling a Jedi, I was starting to feel hungry again so we jumped into a cab and asked him to take us to a street with restaurants near our hotel. We decided on Restaurante Zebra a great little place kitted out with anything to do with you guessed it zebras!! The food was excellent and very reasonable (believe it or not, I had the seafood pizza), we had such a great time and it was such value for money, we’ve already booked for next month in a different hotel for the anniversary of our wedding blessing. So, trust me, try it out, get a great deal online and go, for the price of a night out you can stay in a hotel and be pampered just don’t ask me where we booked I’m not allowed to tell you!

Dear Marc

I live in Charco del Pino and was very impressed with your story on the hunting dogs, I totally agree with the cruelty I’ve actually shouted to a hunter near my house for kicking his dog and have since watched them very closely. If you would like to come down and see another side of hunters your (sic) quite welcome to one Sunday around 8.00am, rsvp MJM Via email Dear Malcolm, So glad you enjoyed my hunting article, during my research I was horrified by some of the examples of cruelty I came across- although again I must say again I’m sure many Podenco owners are not guilty of these unspeakable atrocities. I’ll certainly consider taking you up on your invite in the near future! Thanks, Marc

weighs about 1,000kg it is made up of a large heart underneath a small heart and topped with an enormous crown of flowers. It takes around 25 men to carry them from their respective neighbourhoods to the church square. The processions are escorted by dancers and along the route supporters of each of area sing songs and shout out sarcastic comments to their rivals. The rivalry reaches its peak as each street’s band pays tribute to their heart. At noon the Hearts are solemnly offered to St Bartholomew then raised up in the air for the crowds to admire. Late the following day they are ritually

TEJINA is a small town in the municipality of La Laguna in the north of Tenerife. There are around 6,000 people living there who mainly rely on agriculture and work derived from it for their livelihood. As with many farming communities the harvest festival is an important event and the people of Tejina have a rather unusual way of celebrating it.

marching bands, a “Battle of Flowers” with fun and entertainment for all and finally culminates, around the 24th August (the last Sunday) with the “Hearts”. The origins of this tradition, like other cultural expressions of a similar nature are unknown. It is believed the offerings of flowers, fruit, laurels and herbs was common in the festivities of the Guanche people, the original island inhabitants, who celebrated a festival called Beñesmén – so it probably dates back

During the month of August the town slowly builds up to a major celebration. The festive programme, honouring their patron San Bartolomé, lasts approximately two weeks and includes cultural events, sports,

dismantled and the fruit and cakes thrown to the public. People party and dance in the square until nightfall when the festival comes to an end with the burning of a rag doll called “El Haragan” which marks the return to the normal life in the village after a week of song, dance and fireworks. The Corazones de Tejina is a festival that continues because the local people recognise and are willing to maintain and pass on tradition. It is so quirky, expressive and dramatic it attracts visitors from all over the island so come and lose your heart and soak up the fun at Tenerife’s most unusual summer fiesta.

to that time. The modern day fiesta is an exciting mixture of both old and new rituals. The whole village comes together in friendly rivalry and three streets Calle de Arriba, Calle de Abajo and El Pico compete to outdo each other with their beautifully decorated hearts. The Hearts known as “Corazones” are made out of wood and metal and decorated with flowers, fruit and cakes called “tortas”. Each heart is around 12m tall and

Foreign Office Launches Campaign To Combat Excessive Holiday Drinking New statistics show peer pressure and cheap drinks can lead to more than a holiday hangover

In a new campaign under the banner “On holiday, don’t let drink do your talking”, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is encouraging young holidaymakers to think before and while they drink to avoid putting themselves at risk of serious harm. Expats are being asked to share this important message with visiting friends and family to help ensure they spend their time enjoying their holidays, not in hospital, jail or worse.

New research shows that around half (51%) of 16-24 year olds say they are likely to drink more on holiday than at home. Almost two thirds (62%) attributed this to alcohol being cheaper. Peer pressure is also a major factor, with 40% of those surveyed saying they had felt pressure from friends to drink more than they wanted to.* Consular staff in Spain have already been called on this summer to come to the aid of British nationals who find themselves in trouble after drinking to excess. Will Middleton, Consular Regional Director for Spain said: “Going on holiday is a great opportunity to relax and have fun with family and friends, and enjoying a drink can be part of that. We’re not telling people to stop drinking but we do want people to be aware of the consequences

of drinking to excess – and our research shows almost half of young people understand them already. “Laws and customs regarding alcohol vary from country to country, for example with lower limits for drink driving in Spain and “free-pour” rather than specific measures, which makes it harder to control how much you are drinking. It’s important to find out about local laws, including on alcohol consumption, to avoid a night in a police cell or even a criminal record. “Drinking can impair judgement. The effect of being hospitalised or arrested overseas goes far beyond a ruined holiday and can have a devastating impact on fam-

ily and friends – financially and emotionally. So our message is have fun in the sun, but drink responsibly so you don’t put yourself at risk of harm.” One example of what can happen is the story of Jake, who fell from a balcony after a night out with friends. His moving video story can be seen on www.youtube.com/ watch?v=hhxqyPUyiTs The FCO is also encouraging holidaymakers to show respect and consideration to other holidaymakers and local people while on holiday - the findings revealed that excessive alcohol consumption resulted in young British holidaymakers engaging in risky or disrespectful behaviour: • Almost a quarter (23%) of

Good weather and the atmosphere of the beach of El Medano, as well as its extensive programme of summer activities, planned for the areas of tourism and sport of the Council of Granadilla, is making El Medano a favourite destination for tourists. An added advantage for visitors to the area is the service of adapted bathrooms for older and less able visitors.

The head of rescue and life-saving services, José Gregorio Gaspar Hernández, said: “We especially welcome groups of senior citizens to San Miguel”, he explained, that during the summer period, in addition to locals with mobility problems who frequent the beach throughout the year, “there are large numbers of tourists.” The high demand experienced this year is thought to be connected to the suspension of supervision services at Las Vistas beach. As the Coordinator explained: “After the cessation of assistance

to disabled persons, and persons with reduced mobility, in the aforementioned leisure area, several private companies have contacted us, so we are able to help to these tourists”. In addition to the services in El Medano Beach, the City Council of Granadilla understands that this offer should not be limited only to this beach and has already adapted facilities to aid disabled people in La Jaquita and La Tejita, element that contributes to the fact that they are entitled to show the blue flag throughout the year.

young British holidaymakers have gone swimming while drunk on holiday abroad • More than one in ten

(11%) young Brits have put themselves in a vulnerable situation with a stranger while drunk on holiday abroad

• Over a quarter (26%) of 16-24s have done something while drunk on holiday that they were ashamed of.

Top tips to ensure alcohol doesn’t ruin your night out or even your whole holiday:

• Remember tolerance to alcohol may change in the heat and bars

in Spain often serve larger measures than in the UK. It is worth alternating your drinks with water or soft drinks. • Protect your drink – to avoid the risk of your drink being spiked, keep an eye on it at all times and don’t accept drinks from strangers unless you see them being poured at the bar. • Stay close to your friends – if you are drinking with friends look out for each other. If they seem drunk or act out of the ordinary, make sure you get them home safely. Never let a friend go home alone or with someone they don’t know. • Drink respectfully – this includes showing respect and consideration to other holidaymakers and local people while on holiday.

Toddler Dies On Holiday

An inquest has heard how a mother put her healthy child to bed one night, but found him dead the next morning

while they were on holiday in Tenerife. Stephanie Ballantine from Halesowen, West Midlands, said that her son had

been behaving ‘normally’ the night before his tragic death on December 28th in Las Americas.

Alfie Brown died of natural causes, aged 14 months, during the family holiday last year. His mother, Miss Ballantine, 19 said: ‘It was completely sudden. I put him to bed the night before and found him the next morning.’ She told the inquest at Smethwick Council House that Alfie had been playing by the pool ‘all day’. Miss Ballantine, who is pregnant again, described Alfie’s development as ‘completely normal’, saying that he had passed medical check-ups ‘with flying colours.’ A consultant perinatal pathologist at Birmingham Women’s Hospital carried out a post mortem into Alfie’s death on January 10. Dr Phillip Cox said that his death had been caused by bronchitis with bronchial pneumonia: ‘It appears to have come on very quickly, but was widespread,” he said. “We didn’t manage to find out what the organism causing the infection was.’ Dr Cox dismissed an exotic foreign virus as the likely cause, suggesting that Alfie’s death had been the result of a ‘nasty virus infection’ which originated in the UK. He added that the child had ‘more likely’ died as the result of a bacterial infection. Black Country coroner Robin Balmain, said: ‘There is nothing unnatural about his death. It’s terribly distressing, I understand that, but it’s not unnatural. I am really sorry that this has happened to you. I can’t imagine what a shock it was to you.’

Tenerife tourism continues to develop its policy of corporate social responsibility. This will include bus travel tickets for Añaza children who are in economic difficulties and do not have a children’s centre in their neighbourhood. This action will enable them to attend centres in other areas.

Starting in September, and set to continue for a further year, children will be looked after in SOS Children’s villages, during which mothers may have time to attend training courses and look for jobs. Continuing collaboration with disadvantaged families in Añaza, Tenerife Tourism has launched a project aimed at collecting donations from the staff

of Tenerife Tourism. Money raised will go to deal with emergency payments, the purchase of food or other basic needs that the poorest families will be able to afford. At the same time, in a repeat of last year’s effort, the Red Cross has launched the “Vuelta al cole solidaria”. To help with this campaign, two Tourism of Tenerife offices will have collection boxes installed where the public can make donations, the proceeds of which will go to help families unable to afford to buy school materials.. A Food Bank will be opened in November for what they are calling a “La gran recogida”. Tenerife tourism will be offering help that goes beyond just giving them food supplies, they will be recruiting volunteers to collect and distribute food, toys and clothing for families in distress.

Over 2,800 Bars Closed In The Canary Islands

newsinthesun.com

The economic crisis has taken its toll on the leisure industry in the Canary Islands.

In the last four years a total of 2,869 bars have closed down, 16.7% of all registered establishments. In 2008 the archipelago had 17,159 bars that figure drops to 14,290 in 2012, according to yearly economic data produced by La Caixa. During the last year, 712 bars have closed in the Islands. The Canaries rate of closure is higher than the national average. Over the whole of Spain, the crisis has forced 45,491 bars to close down, which means that between 2008 (314,598) and 2012 (269 107) there are 14.5% fewer bars in the whole country. The fall in consumption is, in the main, due to the high unemployment, 33.69%, in the islands: “The purchasing power of consumers has dropped and not just for the unemployed, but in society in general because even those working are afraid to spend because the general trend is to save,” said Francisco Perez, sector president in the Chamber of Commerce of Gran Canaria. Perez said that in the past two years, just in Gran Canaria, 1,500 bars have closed their door and another 1,500 are pending closure. The sales tax increase this year has also led to bad results in the sector. Since July last year anyone in the ca-

tering business has to face paying IGIC at 7% instead of 2%. In Perez’s view, the key to improving the situation is that “since we have fewer customers, what the government should do is lower Canarian sales taxes” he says. Other costs such as electricity or special tax, as levied on alcoholic beverages have also increased and are borne by the entrepreneurs themselves. Comprehensive health checks and constant police presence are also a problem. Perez also believes we require the adoption of more flexible policies and standards. “We live on tourism and yet, there are areas in which the hours are restricted and at midnight the terraces have to be closed and brought in. I do not understand how you want to promote

the islands, for example, attract cruise tourism, and then not support this strategic sector. “said Francisco Perez. What certainly has become essential to keep afloat the bar sector is the professionalism of those who manage and work in it. According to the Federation of Canaria Hospitality Business, Leisure, Services and Trade (Fecao) the hospitality industry employs 110,000 people in the Canary Islands, of whom “approximately 60,000 are directly employed in Catering,” said its president, Antonio Velez. 80% of businesses that have closed their bars are people who have gotten into the business without having a clue about the trade, just to create jobs for themselves.

Helpful information driving in Spain

By Sylvia from Crystal Clear Solutions TRAFFIC REGULATIONS - require that the following items be kept in the vehicle:

Set of bulbs and tools necessary to replace them, Two warning triangles officially approved by the Ministerio del Interior, bearing a round symbol E9 & the code 27R03. A spare tyre and the tools necessary to replace it, a reflective jacket, a spare pair of glasses (for those who need them to drive). DRIVING WITH NON-SPANISH REGISTRATION PLATES - As a member of the EU (but not a registered resident of Spain) you may import your car into Spain using its own original licence plates. You may retain it in Spain indefinitely so long as you maintain its home country tax fully paid up, including a current MOT as required. However you may not stay in Spain any longer than six months in any one calendar year & neither you nor anyone else can use it during the following six months in Spain. Your car must also be insured in its country of registration under EU Law. This can give you problems with insurance. Some companies will offer cover but please read the small print. The Green Card system currently covers 44 countries and is managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau. GENERAL RULES FOR PARKING - Yellow Lines mean “No parking”, many ig-

nore this but we don’t advise you to! In fact, the Police are very tolerant but we do see cars being towed for being on yellow lines. Blue Lines mean “Find a meter” & pay for the time you require. Meters are situated at the side of the road or against buildings. Authorities rarely chase offenders who do not pay but when you come to sell your car all such tickets are registered against the property as a debt, plus interest. We have also seen cars on blue lines (either they have overstayed the time period or did not pay at all) being towed away by the police. PARKING FINES - Whilst parked in a blue parking space, if you do find a parking fine stuck under your windscreen

wiper you will find a form and a small envelope attached, you have the option to fill in the form, pay the amount it asks for into one of the parking ticket machines. Press first the Red button, pay in the money then press the Blue button. The machine will print out a receipt. Detach the small receipt portion at the bottom, then place the other portion & the form into the envelope and post in the slot at the bottom of the machine. Retain your proof of payment or it can be more expensive later. If you receive a parking fine then you need to be aware that repeat offenders may have points deducted from their licence as this is considered to be breaking the law. If you need to pay a parking fine you should do so: • By telephone calling 060 • On the DGT website at www.dgt.es • In any local post office • At any branch of Santander Bank When paying a traffic offence, you must be able to provide the penalty case number, which is located on the paperwork handed out by the DGT informing you of the offence. Also, do not forget... if you do not pay your fines your bank account can be embargoed! Call us for further information on +34 659 606 775

eaSYJet LaunCHeS neWCaStLe fLigHtS

EASyJET has launched a new route from Newcastle to Tenerife that will start on November 6th and operate weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays.

The economic Vice-President of the Cabildo and island Councillor of tourism, Carlos Alonso, emphasizes that “this new flight joins those already connecting the island with the United Kingdom, not only from Newcastle but in other cities of the country, which will provide greater air capacity for our commuter market, with almost 1.6 million tourists coming to Tenerife in 2012”. So far in 2013, Easyjet has brought over 12,000 tourists to Tenerife from the UK, an increase over 6% on last year. The airline currently operates other routes in Bristol, Edinburgh, London-Gatwick, and Manchester. Of these locations, London Gatwick provides almost nearly 50% of the total. Eight companies operate flights between Tenerife and the UK. In a list headed by Ryanair, Thomson Airways and Thomas Cook, Monarch, British Airways and Jet2.com, EasyJet comes in at number 5 for the largest number of tourists brought to the Island. British tourists coming to the island has a family income average of around 56,000 euros, higher by more than 5,000 euros compared to other nations who earn around 51.676 euros. Around 54.2% choose to book their holidays independently while 44.8% choose a tourist package.

T

here’s definitely something about the sea that calls us to it and for me it’s not just the sandy beaches that are inviting because the rocky shores and the weird and wonderful marine life you can discover in the rock pools fascinate me. There’s a small cove near where I used to live in Costa del Silencio that I go to a lot and it always has something new for me to see.

Strange Creatures Call From The Sea In The Canary Islands By Steve Andrews

Hermit Crab

One very large pool gets people swimming in it at times but I prefer to feed the fish that live there so I take a little bag of stale bread with me and I scatter it on the water. There is always a large shoal of young Grey Mullet and they flash their silvery sides as they rush to grab a mouthful and make the water seemingly boil.

Blennies Blennies are slower in their approach and there are more here than I have ever seen in the UK. Some of the types you find in Britain also live in crevices in the rocks and are left out of water when the tide goes down. Blennies are the nearest thing you have to Mudskippers, those strange little fish that are found in tropical mangrove swamps. Just like them some types of blenny are able to live

Sea Urchins

Blennie in an amphibious way just as long as they can keep wet, although I don’t know if any Tenerife blennies can do this.

Damselfish This particular pool that I like has had a Canary Damselfish too, which I am sure was a male in his best courting colours of an exotic blue. I had been hoping to get a picture but each time I had my camera the water was too rippled by the wind

Speckled sea hare

or it was a calm day and I had forgotten it. I used to see damselfish in marine tropical fish tanks back over in Britain but here you can see them in their natural environment. Puffer fish with their inflatable bodies and googly eyes live here as well but I have yet to spot one of these strange little fish.

Sea Urchins Black spiny sea urchins are easily found, and sometimes there are lots of them clambering about over the algae-covered rocks. These strange creatures are related to starfish and they have tiny tube feet to help move them about. Sea urchins have no brain but only a primitive nervous system. Having said that they certainly do well enough without and one species is said to live up to 200 years. On one occasion I got chatting to a man there who was interested in seeing all the fish coming to be fed. I gave him some spare crumbs so he could feed them too. He told me his doctor had told him that exposing his feet to the seawater would do them good. I told him that whilst this might well be the case to be careful where he was stepping just in case he put his foot on a sea urchin. There are often hermit crabs moving about on the bottom of the pool too although at first they look like winkles or other types of seashell. These amazing little crustaceans live inside empty shells that they can retreat up into for protection.

Damselfish fence by making the water hard to see through as well as surprising a would-be predator and squid and cuttlefish use the same method. The Sea Hare grazes on algae that grow on the rocks. One very conspicuous type is the green and flimsy looking Sea Lettuce and this type of seaweed is edible by people too if washed and cooked. Another plant, which is compared with this salad vegetable is the Canary Samphire, which in Spanish is known as Lechuga de Mar (Lettuce

Sea Hares Another fascinating marine creature I have found in this rock pool is the Speckled Sea Hare, which is a type of sea slug or nudibranch, and which gets its name because of two projections on its head like the ears of the mammal it is named after. Sea Hares have pale creamy skins marked with contrasting dark brown rings and if you pick one up it will squirt red-purple ink into the water. This is thought to act as a de-

of the Sea), although it isn’t a type of seaweed but a member of the parsley family. It grows in the rocks and cliffs around the beach and is tough enough to stand the salty spray and the wind. Something else I have been excited to sea on the cliffs and seafront is the amazing Hummingbird Hawk Moth, which hovers like the bird it is named after as it feeds and flies in bright sunlight. It’s a moth that couldn’t decide if it wanted to be a bird or a butterfly!

tf2/tf1 improvements delayed until 2014 THE proposed improvements to the TF2/TF1 motorway connection at Santa Maria del Mar near the Carrefour outof-town Shopping centre, has been put back by at least a year.

The junction is prone to tail backs throughout the year. The improvement project was devised in response to local demand more than 10 years ago, above all for road safety reasons to avoid the sudden lane changes which are currently in effect at the junction. Although budgeted for with Regional and Island funds, the Tenerife Cabildo coughed up

their part but the Canarian Government did not. The original plan was for the Canarian Government to excavate the hillside to create a new lane at the junction and the Tenerife Cabildo would undertake building the necessary flyover. As Canarian Government funds have not been forthcoming, Tenerife Cabildo Councillor for Highways, José Luis Delgado, has told the Spanish press that at the next Cabildo meeting his department will propose they modify the applied credit, about 400,000 euros, in order to invest this money in a different project. The road link will now be put back until at least 2014.

Canarian tea-leafs Continue to make a Killing in the islands

newsinthesun.com THE total number of crimes and offenses committed in the Islands until 30 June decreased by 3.1% over the same period last year, a figure that contrasts with a further increase in burglaries, rising by 8.1% and thefts, which rose 6.2%, according to crime figures for the first half of 2013, made public yesterday by the Ministry of the Interior.

47,921 criminal offenses (felonies or misdemeanours) were reported in the first six months of the year in the Archipelago, 1,522 fewer than in the same period of 2012. The drop in overall crime recorded in the Canary Islands is slightly higher than that found in the whole of Spain (2.7%), while in the islands as well as the rest of the country certain types of crimes are on the increase. In the first half of this year 2,177 robberies took place in Canarian homes (163 more than in the first half of 2012) and 17,200

The hair on your head greatly suffers if you do not allow your body to breathe! We all want to avoid embarrassing odours and wet under arm patches, but the use of an anti-perspirant deodorant really should be avoided. If you do not allow your body

to expel the unwanted toxins, expressed more so via the underarm sweat channels, then not only are you increasing the risks of breast and lymph cancers (reported quite widely in many medical articles) but the use of anti-perspirant deodorants results in increased scalp perspiration which will cause or contribute to avoidable hair thinning conditions or complete hair loss, greasiness at the hair roots, extreme dryness giving a “frizzy” appearance to the ends, often in conjunction with dry dandruff and itchiness to the scalp, as well as spots to the upper back and acne to the neck and face.

There are more products for men to combat body perspiration that are purely deodorisers stating “Deodorant” on the labelling than there are manufacturers producing deodorants which are not anti-perspirant for women. If it says it lasts for the whole day, or even longer, it will be an anti-perspirant and so should not be used.

thefts (1,007 more than last year). However, the total number of robberies (7,287) hardly changed and motor vehicle theft fell 10.2%, from 1093 to 981. The ministry’s data also reflects a de-

cline in reported drug trafficking offenses, by 4.9% from 349 to 332 and criminal damage by 6.9% from 4437 to 4132. Tenerife figures very much follow the trend in all the islands.

Live Arico News

EVENTS ON THE ROCK Fish and Chips Anyone? that work in the animal welfare field on the island over this past year. The future is positive, without the burden of debt, Live Arico, with your help, will be adding to the health and education programmes, like neutering, micro chipping and vaccinating, already under way, that can make a real change in the future. Thank you all so much for your continued support. The picture shows the additional help Live Arico have been able to provide due to your loyalty. Thanks are not enough. The future is bright, the future is Live Arico PAWS.

R This worked well on its first run last year and it is now seemingly going to be an annual event. Arona’s Ruta de Cócteles 2013 will be held between 12 and 29 September, and as last year, there will be a cocktails competition, on 26 September at 7pm in Los Cristianos’ harbour promenade. Prices have gone up 1 Euro since last year, with alcoholic cocktails 5 Euros, and non-alcoholic at 4 Euros.

emember a few weeks ago we told you about two Tenerife residents, Linsey Sloan and Lorraine Mckeon taking on the Tough Mudder Challenge, a 12 mile assault course held at various locations around the world? Well, it’s here, this Saturday, in Scotland, they are going for it.

The event is not about winning, it’s about finishing, and about team work. Google it and see the clips on YouTube, its brutal, they even had to sign a death disclaimer. And they’re doing it all for us, Live Arico PAWS. So what can WE weaklings left here on the rock do? Well, we can get down to the Palms Chippy, near Hotel Las Palmeras, Las Americas, between 4 and 9pm, when there will be 10% discount off your bill for the best fish and chips on the island. AND, 50% of the takings will be added to the Tough Mudder sponsorship pot. AND, you will be entered into a draw to win a voucher worth 60 Euros. It’s a no-brainer, the girls put themselves through hell, and we get to eat fish and chips!!! Hope to see you there. Oh, and good luck girls, we will be routing for you!!!

We Have Done It!!! El Club de Baloncesto Valles Sur Fátima in Valle de San Lorenzo has begun a campaign to encourage basketball players aged 4-16, so that they can form a team working with the Arona club. Scheduled to start in September, anyone who would like to register or request more information can call 615 377 898 or 667 799 591 or email vallesfatima@gmail.com 1ª Feria del Pescado de Arona In Los Cristianos on Saturday, August 24 from 6.00pm. The fair will feature opportunities to sample different fish. There will be workshops featuring fishing gear and net making as well as folk dancing. More information at: http://tinyurl.com/ n8pjaf4

We have paid off the debt. Thank you all so much for your continued help and support. Just over a year ago Live Arico’s new committee inherited debts amounting to 18,222 Euros. It was morally correct to pay the vets and feed suppliers that helped Live Arico when they were struggling financially. They are hero’s in our eyes, who continued to support Live Arico out of care and concern for the animals, and we are happy and relieved to have fully paid back the debt that the previous association had built up over the years. We are confident that now the association operates under a more professionally run system, we can go forward and help many more animals. Although it has been frustrating repaying debts when we could all see the money could be spent on current issues, you, our supporters have enabled us, not only to repay them, but also supply proactive help to many organisations, welfare groups, foster carers and individuals

Autumn Events For Your Calendar Yes, we have a few for you. On Sunday the 1st September we will be at Blue Luna in Los Cristianos from 2pm to 6pm, with “Spanglish” the order of the day. English tapas (haha) sangria, and drinks promotions throughout the afternoon, with entertainment from Alfie B, Kerry Railton plus more to be confirmed. Come and join us for a nice afternoon out. On Saturday the 28th September from 8pm, we find ourselves back

on the Top Square, Golf del Sur for our three monthly fund raising spectacular. The rule is we have to better the entertainment each and every time. It’s a challenge. So, you never know what will happen next. Come and see..... Sunday the 6th October sees us back at Horse Riding Adventures, Aldea Blanca, for Katie’s BBQ number 2. Can it possibly be as good as the last one? Probably, it coincides with a show jumping competition. Details to follow but mark it in your diaries... On Saturday the 19th October we will be having a bit of a posh do. Get your best togs out for our black tie and posh frock fundraiser at Vivo, Playa de las Americas, from 7pm. Be entertained by the world class Bitter and Twisted, whilst you enjoy a two course meal with wine, beer and soft drinks at the table. Later, chill out on the terrace with Marc Craig and maybe some special guests. Tickets priced at just 25 Euros each, call Sue quickly on 629 388 102 as they are going fast already. The dress code is of course optional, come as you please, but we thought we needed an excuse to dress up for a change, haha. In any event, don’t miss it; it will be a night to remember.

VINEyARdS in the archipelago are the first to be harvested in Spain, and this year they are forecasting a large crop. Five of the six big wine producers predict bigger volumes than in 2012.

Together, Canary Island vineyards are reportedly predicting a crop of about six million kilos, up by a third from last year and the bumper wine grape harvest is luring some workers from the unemployment queues to the vineyards. With un-employment in the islands at over 30% there are few other job prospects on the horizon. Domingo Martin Cruz, head of Bodegas Marba vineyard based in Tejina, Tenerife, said some locals were taking places normally filled by immigrants during the harvest: “This year there are already fewer immigrants in the fields. Local people are taking up the habit again for financial reasons more than anything,” he said. Alejandro a 45-year-old from Tacoronte, said he

worked for 15 years as a chef in a pastry shop but was made redundant two years ago: “This is not my normal thing but at least it is work in the open air,” he said, his hands protected with gloves as he cut grapes from the vines with pruning shears under a hot sun.

A fellow vineyard worker, 24-year-old Mohammed, said he arrived from Morocco to the Canary Islands nine years ago on a patera and was trained in agriculture at the centre for minors where he was placed on arrival. He has been working the fields since 2005.

Mainland News In Brief According to local media reports, a 39-year-old woman went into labour shortly after take-off on a flight bound for Italy, causing the flight to be diverted to Barcelona, where the baby boy was born just before landing. The mother and baby were taken to Barcelona’s Sant Joan de Deu hospital in Barcelona and were reported to be in good health. Royal Air Maroc did not disclose the mother’s nationality, it is understood that crew members and a midwife, who happened to be on the plane, helped with the delivery of the baby that arrived several weeks before its due date. The flight continued on to Bologna about 50 minutes after landing in Barcelona.

Police in Spain and several Latin American countries joined forces in an operation against the possession and distribution of child pornography that led to more than 100 arrests. Police in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Uruguay and Venezuela all took part in the operation coordinated by Interpol. In the first phase of the operation, security forces made 87 searches in the eight Latin American countries and in Spain, taking into custody and charging 78 suspects. The second phase took place in Argentina, Costa Rica and Spain, with 22 searches that led to an equal number of people being arrested and accused. The investigations were launched by a special unit of the Chilean police acting against the distribution and possession of child-pornography material over a known file-sharing network. Besides 14 arrests, authorities in Spain searched 19 homes, seizing more than 100 hard drives, a score of Memory Sticks and almost 1,000 DVDs with child-porn files. Investigators estimate there could be several thousand files of paedophilic content. El Corte Ingles has won breathing space after securing a deal to refinance nearly three-quarters of its existing debt. The chain, Spain’s largest privately-held firm, said its lenders have agreed to refinance 3.8bn Euros of its 5bn Euros debt. The new loans will now mature in 2021. El Corte Ingles has been hurt hard by the crisis in Spain and falling sales, and has been forced to cut prices to compete better with competitors.. The group assets worth 7.4bn Euros and annual revenues of around 15bn Euros, and the group said this would help it persuade other banks to refinance the remainder of its debt. Seven people were rescued after their yacht sank off the Mediterranean coast of Spain. The alarm was raised when the yacht Indigo, registered in the Channel Islands, started taking on water about 60 miles off the coast. Falmouth Coastguard, which coordinated the search, said both a Spanish coastguard lifeboat and helicopter were launched. He said three people were rescued from the sea and the rest from a life raft. The spokesman said all were reported to be safe and well and were flown to Girona, in the north east of Spain. The Ministry of Public Works has opened the bidding for a 1.1 million euro contract to conduct a feasibility study into a proposed coastal rail link between Valencia and Alicante. Although a new line would need to be constructed between Alicante and Gandia, some sections of the new route would only require upgrades to the existing infrastructure. The study will also consider options for a 48 kilometre branch line from Alicante to Torrevieja, where there is currently no rail connection. Before the project can be given the go ahead, the feasibility study must first establish whether there is adequate demand for the route and what the potential profitability of the new line could be. The proposed route would look to link up coastal towns between the two cities, which would include the seaside resort of Benidorm.

Zara Founder Dies On Holiday

The co-founder of fashion chain Zara, Rosalia Mera, one of the richest women in the world, has died after suffering a stroke on holiday.

Ms Mera, 69, fell ill while on holiday in Menorca with her daughter Sandra. She was transferred to the private San Rafael hospital in Coruna, northern Spain, where she died a hospital source said. She was the highest-placed among Spanish women and was also described as the richest self-made woman in the world, listed by Forbes this year as the world’s 195th richest billionaire with a fortune of £3.9bn. Ms Mera left school at the age of 11 and started work as a seamstress at 13 before going on to found the Inditex textile giant alongside her husband Amancio Ortega. They were originally going to call the store Zorba after the “Zorba the Greek” movie, but there was a bar with that name just steps away from the site, so the letters on the Zorba sign were rearranged to spell out Zara. The store specialized in low-priced versions of more expensive popular clothes, and the formula turned into a success for store openings across Spain and then internationally. The pair later divorced but Mera retained 5.1% of Inditex, which includes international clothing retailer Zara. Ms Mera gained recognition by voicing opposition to changes in Spain’s abortion laws and to government cutbacks in name of austerity affecting Spain’s cherished education and national health care programs. Mera was also an active philanthropist. Ms Mera had left the Inditex board in 2004 but kept a 5.05% stake in the firm, according to Spanish news reports. Her venture capital firm,

Rosp Corunna, holds stakes in several media companies, and she also held 30.6% of hotel chain Room Mate. Besides the Zara chain, Inditex also owns retailers Bershka, Masssimo Dutti, Oysho, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius, Uterque and Zara Home. There are 1,763 Zara stores around the world, and Inditex has a total of 6,058 stores and

113 Drown In Spain In Just 7 Months

Guardia Civil divers were called to assist in the search for two girls, aged 13 and 15, who were swimming in the Valmayor reservoir, located near Los Arroyos, in the municipality of El Escorial, Madrid. Both girls were found just ten metres away from the shore, in waters which were 8 metres deep.

The girls, who were cousins and from Ecuador, were said to have been sitting in the water near the shore, where the water is around one metre deep, but in an area where bathing is prohibited. Four helicopters were immediately dispatched after emergency calls were made to the coordination centre, along with fire fighters, police and rescue teams, who were on the scene in minutes. Specialist divers then attended and located their bodies. Medical staff

Thousands Queue For Film Casting

O

ut of work Spaniards have been queuing up in their thousands for a chance to be an extra in Ridley Scott’s upcoming biblical epic, “Exodus”, as castings are held in Almería, southern Spain.

Andalucía is one of the worst hit regions for unemployment in Spain, with around 35% out of work; few could resist the chance of earning 80 Euros a day playing apart in the story of Moses and the Jewish exodus to the Promised Land? One of the casting organizers, Nerea Herrero said: “Half of Almería and half of Spain has come.” Scott is been looking for around 3,000-4,000 extras for the new biblical epic and is currently casting is for slaves who will appear in the film. Criteria covers people whose skin is dark, who

must look either of African or of Arab origin, with beards, and they must,obviously, be thin. “We are looking for very, very thin people, even if it is a bit over the top, because we need people who look like slaves and they were starving,” said Herrero. According to Herrero, over the last few days around 10,000 people have attended a casting call in Almeria, and another 5,000 in the nearby town of Pechina. Crowds have come from as far north as Galicia and the Basque Country in the hope of getting on to

the big screen and making a few euros: “We did not expect so many people but we’re glad we had this good response because we need a lot of people.” Final casting was held last Friday, with around 3,000 people turning up, some arriving early in the morning to guarantee a good place in the queue. Successful applicants will be happy to hear that shooting is expected to start in mid-October and Scott finds the surrounding countryside of Almería to be perfect for the epic.

British MEP War Ship Abused On Twitter Visits Gibraltar

Conservative MEP, Julie Girling, who represents Gibraltar in Brussels, received a barrage of online abuse after defending Gibraltar against mounting Spanish aggression. She was branded a ‘Nazi’ and ‘too ugly to visit Spain’ on Twitter after speaking out against border delays between Gibraltar and Spain. The defiant politician insists she will ‘not be bullied’ into silence.

Mrs Girling triggered the furious response after suggesting British families boycott Spain when planning their holidays. Tensions have mounted in recent weeks in a dispute over Spanish fisherman accessing Gibraltar waters, which have seen Madrid impose lengthy border checks which have caused huge queues. The Royal Gibraltar Police said drivers have had to queue for hours to enter Gibraltar, although there were no delays leaving. Some motorists said they were kept waiting for as long as five hours. Gibraltar’s chief minister accused Spain’s prime minister of behaving like Argentine dictator General Galtieri. Fabian Picardo said

Mariano Rajoy was fuelling the crisis to distract from his domestic troubles – just as the military junta in Buenos Aires did by ordering the invasion of the Falkland Islands in 1982. He spoke out as the Foreign Office announced that it is lodging another formal complaint with Spain over the latest ‘unacceptable’ delays at the border with Gibraltar. Mrs Girling urged British hoilidaymakers to shun Spanish resorts until the dispute was resolved, but was sent a stream of abuse by online trolls via e-mail and Twitter. One user called Javier said: ‘You are a nazi Julie Goering.’ Other posted: ‘You’re too ugly to visit Spain anyway. Some messages were posted in Spanish while others used poor English. Mrs Girling said: ‘It may be that to be trolled goes

with the job. However, the Spanish Twitter trolls aren’t doing their argument any favours by trolling me. Their abuse shows they have no argument as they can only resort to the lowest form of language. The people of Gibraltar need our support. They will not be bullied by the Spanish Government or by a minority of the Spanish people. Neither will I.’ David Cameron is poised to make a decision on whether to sue Spain in the European Court of Justice over its imposition of draconian border controls. A task force, including the aircraft carrier Illustrious and two frigates, set sail from Portsmouth last week for a long-planned exercise in the Mediterranean. The frigate HMS Westminster is due to dock in Gibraltar shortly along with two support vessels.

For the lead of Moses, Hollywood is talking Christian Bale, however, some on the inside saying Joel Edgerton might just play the part of Ramses, but nothing is confirmed as yet. Ridley Scott is famous for the film Alien (1979), and his best-known works are sci-fi classic Blade Runner (1982), Thelma & Louise (1991), best picture Oscar-winner Gladiator (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), Matchstick Men (2003), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), American Gangster (2007), Robin Hood (2010), and Prometheus (2012).

HMS Westminster arrived in Gibraltar the day after Spanish fishermen were involved in a stand-off with UK military and police boats. The Royal Navy warship sailed in as tensions between Spain and the British territory were described as their worst for 40 years.

The type 23 frigate, scheduled to spend three days on the Rock, before joining several other vessels taking part in a pre-planned international training exercise called Cougar 13 in the Mediterranean and Gulf. The visit was described by the Ministry of Defence as “long-planned”. On Sunday, a flotilla of more than 30 fishing boats was “corralled” by Royal Navy vessels after protesting near the spot where Gibraltar’s government placed 70 concrete blocks in disputed waters next to the Rock. Gibraltar says it has created the concrete artificial reef there to protect local fish stocks from trawling, but Madrid says it restricts their right to fish. The Spanish government has accused Gibraltar of laying the blocks “without the necessary authorisation” in

“waters that are not theirs”. It responded by introducing additional checks at the fenced border, and suggesting a 50 euro fee be imposed on vehicles entering or leaving Gibraltar. Fabian Picardo, Gibraltar’s chief minister has reportedly received death threats and been targeted by Spanish internet trolls, wrote on Twitter: “Big thank you also to Royal Navy, Gib Defence Police, HM Customs and Port Authority for their deployment too. Cool, professional and calm!” He said “hell will freeze over” before Gibraltar removes the concrete reef and accused Spain of behaving like North Korea. Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy says he will take all legal measures to defend his country’s interests.

Prime Minister David Cameron has raised the dispute with European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso. He said the checks - which have seen huge delays at the border in recent weeks - were “politically motivated and disproportionate” and therefore contrary to the EU right of free movement. The row has set relations between Spain and the territory back 40 years, according to Edward Macquisten, chief executive of the Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce. He said it was also having an impact on Gibraltar’s high season tourist trade, which usually sees hordes of British visitors from Spanish resorts. Spain ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to Britain in 1713, but has persistently sought to regain the tiny enclave.

portuguese Holiday – in Spain

J

UNE Burns, 66, and her friend Susan Jones booked a dream package holiday to Portugal arrived at her hotel only to find she’d been taken to Spain instead!

were stuck in Spain in the middle of nowhere. I ended up spending a fortune on day trips to Seville, where I’d been before.’ When June returned to England, she complained to the tour operator, who has now offered her £200 compensation. But she is still waiting for the £1,247 Portuguese holiday she paid for. She said: ‘The customer service people keep saying, “What’s wrong? Didn’t you like the hotel?” And I keep saying the hotel was fine but I wasn’t in Portugal. If I sit in a seat and ask a holiday company to book me a holiday to the Algarve I expect to end up in the right country.’ Since her return, Mrs Burns has been twice to the Trafford Centre store to complain and made three calls to customer services. A spokeswoman for Thomas Cook UK & Ireland said: ‘We know how important holidays are for our customers, and would like to apologise for any misunderstanding that may have occurred when Mrs Burns booked her holiday with us. ‘While Mrs Burns did not query her holiday confirmation documents prior to travel, whereupon we could have amended her booking, we can confirm that we are speaking to her with a view to resolving this matter to her satisfaction.’ Mrs Burns’ holiday confirmation document says they are going to ‘Costa de la Luz, Algarve’. Some travel agents do refer to Costa de la Luz as ‘the Spanish Algarve’ - but Punta Umbria Beach Hotel is not in the Algarve. On Thomas Cook’s website it comes under the heading of Spain with no mention of the word ‘Algarve’.

Thomas Cook flew the ladies Portugal’s Faro Airport and then put them on a bus and driving for 100 miles over the border to Spain’s Costa de la Luz. Mrs Burns, booked the break at the Thomas Cook store at Manchester’s Trafford Centre: ‘I used to work for a cruise operator so I’ve been to most of Europe but had never been to Portugal so I was really keen to go.’ The tour operator told Mrs Burns they’d found her a seven-day trip to the Algarve the southernmost point of mainland Portugal. With her holiday “safely” booked, she packed her head full of what she would be able to see when she got there. However, after the flight to Faro Airport the trip took an unexpected turn. June said: ‘During the journey, people were commenting that there were Spanish road signs but we just dismissed it. Then we arrived at the hotel and it really began to dawn on us that it wasn’t Portugal. ‘I went up to the rep and said “Where are we?” And she said “Spain, is there a problem?” And I said, “Yes, I should be in the Algarve”. She just said it would be difficult to move us because there might not be a free hotel and that we’d definitely enjoy it here.’ With no other option, Mrs Burns and her two companions went ahead with the holiday at the Punta Umbria Beach hotel, near Huelva: ‘The food was good and clean but we

Bonkers Of Benidorm - Brits Declare Independence From Spain

Another major European crisis has erupted in Spain as thousands of British ex-pats living in the Marbella region declared independence from Madrid, pledging their allegiance to the British crown, and asserting their historical right to self-determination as part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Costa del Sol.

The official declaration was made at the Benny Hill Bar in Benidorm, as patriotic Brits defended their right to march through Spain wearing Union Jack shorts and singing ‘Agadoo’ and the theme from ‘The Great Escape’. Spanish police had banned the symbolic British late night conga following last year’s riots when British loyalists infuriated Spanish citizens by going ‘Oi Manuel, this; Basil, this; slap on head!’ The British community living have always kept themselves separate from the rest of the

Spain, refusing to speak Spanish, describing local cuisine as ‘foreign muck’ and only watching the English football while drinking British bitter. The community consists mainly of elderly retirees banging on about how much they got for their house in England, former lottery winners or retired gangland criminals who moved to Spain to avoid extradition. Extraordinarily, one Conservative backbencher welcomed the declaration; ‘our people have been persecuted by the Spanish for long enough. Why should they have to pay in Euros and have road signs in kilometres? Britain should be prepared to send troops to defend this part of Britain if necessary.’ The Spanish government has, understandably, refused to discuss any form of powersharing between Britain and Spain for the Costa del Sol, gong as far as to suggest that perhaps if the Brits wanted to be ruled by Britain, they should go back and live there. ‘Oh no, we wouldn’t want to go back to England…’ responded one British ex-pat. ‘It’s full of foreigners now.’

Student Stranded In Ryanair Duty Free Row

Guy Horne was left stranded at a Spanish airport when he says he was stopped at a Ryanair departure gate by staff and told he would have to make a £60 payment so he could carry his bag of duty-free shopping on board.

Drug Pair Charged Two women arrested on suspicion of trying to smuggle cocaine worth £1.5m out of Peru have been formally charged, prosecutors have said.

The 22-year-old student was flying home to Manchester from Malaga in Spain had no money to cover the fee and says he was unable to fit the carrier bag inside his carry-on luggage. He offered to leave his shopping behind, a bottle of whisky for his dad’s birthday, but was then told by the airline’s handling manager that the gate was closing and he could not get on board. Guy, from Hale, says another family on the same flight offered to take his carrier bag on board, but the manager refused to let them. He says his bag only weighed about 5kg – well below Ryanair’s baggage limit. But it was too full to fit in the extra bottle. He was left behind in Spain and had to wait for over 12 hours for another flight with

a different airline, costing his family hundreds of pounds. Guy, who was trying to get home in order to prepare for two final university degree exams, said: “I was left stranded. I didn’t have any money. I even showed her my empty wallet. She could see I was distressed. I was hyperventilating. She just decided she was not going to let me on the plane and was going to leave me in another country.” He said: “I just want people to be aware that this can happen to anyone. Young people and the elderly can just be left behind like this and they don’t seem to care.” Ryanair made headlines recently after increasing the price for putting luggage in the hold of its planes by 66% over the summer period. Chief executive Michael O’Leary said at the time he

intended to increase baggage charges until no-one took hold luggage on to the airline’s flights. Passengers are allowed to carry a single bag of up to 10kg hand-luggage for free. It says duty-free shopping bags cannot be carried separately. Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said: “All Ryanair passengers agree to our generous 10kg cabin bag policy at the time of booking and any passenger who attempts to board with a second bag, and fails to fit that second bag within their one carry-on bag, has the option of either leaving that bag behind or checking it in upon payment of our check-in bag fee.” He added: “Ryanair will not delay its flights for passengers who fail to comply with its terms and conditions of travel.”

Michaella McCollum Connolly and Melissa Reid, both 20, were moved to a detention centre in Lima after appearing before the District Prosecutor on Tuesday. The women face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years if convicted, the prosecutor’s office in Callao added.

McCollum Connolly and Reid were detained in Lima last week, accused of trying to smuggle millions of pounds worth of cocaine into Europe. The two women have protested their innocence, saying they were recruited by a gang in Madrid and forced to carry items in their luggage at gunpoint. Peruvian officials say the women were en route to Madrid and Majorca on August 6 when airport officials discovered almost 12kgs (26lbs) of cocaine hidden inside food packages in their

luggage. The cocaine was said to have a street value of some £1.3m. They will eventually be taken to the high security women’s prison Ancon 2, north of Lima. Commenting on the women’s current condition in custody, Peter Madden, the lawyer for McCollum Connolly said: “They’re both in a holding cell, there are two other women there, but they haven’t gotten anything to eat today. They haven’t been offered any food and to me that is unacceptable. The conditions inside the holding cells are pretty grim. “They are expected to lie almost on the floor, there is a sort of sponge-type bed which is just not acceptable, there are no blankets, it’s not clean, and the most important thing is that they haven’t actually been offered any food today, and it didn’t look as if they were going to be.”

official photographs of prince george released

Photo: ©Michael Middleton/PA Wire

THE duchess of Cambridge’s father, Michael Middleton, has taken the first official photographs of William, Kate and their son Prince George.

Handout photo taken by Michael Middleton, the Duchess’s father in early August and supplied by Kensington Palace of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they sit with their son Prince George in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire surrounded by Tilly the retriever (a Middleton family pet), and Lupo, the couple’s cocker spaniel. Photo: ©Michael Middleton/PA Wire

The two pictures from the new Cambridge family album were taken by a very proud grandfather in the back garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Kensington Palace confirmed. Taken in “early August”, the first photograph’s show a simple parents and child shot. The couple, back-lit by the sun, are standing in the gardens of the Berkshire home with Kate cradling her two-

week-old son. In the second, William and Kate can be seen sitting on a rug, also in the garden. Kate is still holding Prince George, but they are this time joined by their cocker spaniel, Lupo, and the Middletons’ retriever, Tilly. The two photos were apparently selected from a larger collection taken while the Duke of Cambridge was on paternity leave. For their official engagement and wedding photographs, the Royal couple opted for well-known celebrity photographers Mario Testino and Hugo Bernand. Choosing Mr Middleton to take the photos is yet another example of the Duke and Duchess are deter-

21

mined to do things their way throughout their marriage. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George are thought to have joined Prince William in Anglesey recently days. The couple will next be seen together in public on September 12 for an awards dinner hosted by conservation charity Tusk Trust. In his first interview since he became a father, William said his young son reminded him of himself or Prince Harry. The Duke told CNN: “He’s a little bit of a rascal, I’ll put it that way. He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger, I’m not sure, but he’s doing very well at the moment.”

What the World Will Look Like in 2083 some extraordinary predictions. A pint of milk will cost £321.21, and a dozen eggs will set you back £66.03. A pint of lager is expected to cost £476.86 but a Big Mac, the price of which has remained remarkably stable for the past decade, will rise only slightly to £3.73. Home owners can expect to pay an average of almost £7 million for new properties. Their findings also revealed the average wedding will cost a staggering £132,000, and you will pay out almost £5.6 million to raise your child up to the age of 18. The data projections also found that people will live for much longer:

WHILE Kate Watch gripped the nation for weeks, investment firm dGCAssetManagement.com decided to compile information and see what life would be like when the future King George takes to the throne.

The current Prince Cambridge’s subjects will all be millionaires, witness teleportation and pay £20 for a loaf of bread, according to the investment experts. Taking the year 2083 as a benchmark, researchers used historical data calculated with annual growth rates to compile

‘Many of our investors are parents of young children that will grow up to be the subjects of King George,’ said David Garner, Managing Director of DGCAssetManagement.com. ‘They want to know how to plan for their children’s future and what that future might look like financially. We used historical data to calculate compound annual growth rates, which we then applied over the next 70 years to 2083. We also adjusted for inflation, to provide a better comparison with today’s prices. ‘Some of the numbers might seem outrageous at first but when you consider that a pint of milk cost 20p just 30 years ago, paying £320

in 2083 is not too difficult to imagine.’ Research at FutureTimeline.net also shows that by 2083, the average citizen will have access to an array of biotechnology implants and personal medical devices. These could include fully artificial organs that will never fail, bionic eyes and ears that can provide superman-like senses, and Nano scale brain interfaces which improve the wearer’s intelligence. Predictions show that hyper-intelligent computers will perform ‘the equivalent of all human thought over the last ten thousand years in less than ten microseconds.’ The future experts predict our scientific achievements by 2083 will

include a trans-Atlantic tunnel providing fast travel between the USA and Europe and five year survival rates for brain tumours close to 100 per cent. The 2080s is not quite so golden for many animal species, lizards and polar bears will be extinct, and agriculture will suffer as a result of ‘deadly heat waves.’ In the height of summer, temperatures in major cities such as London and Paris reach over 40°C. While in some more southerly parts of the continent, temperatures of over 50°C are expected. Thousands will die from heat exhaustion. They believe that forest fires will destroy many areas and on-going droughts will cause many rivers to run permanently dry. Spain, Italy and the Balkans, they believe, will turn into desert nations, with climates matching North Africa. Experiments in quantum entanglement, made possible by artificial intelligence and picotechnology, will provide major breakthroughs in travel. By 2083, the future experts claim it will be possible to teleport macro-scale objects from one location to another. The future King George will probably oversee the worldwide adoption of a common currency and the first manned expedition to orbit the planet Jupiter.

untouched Vintage Cars up for auction

HUNdREdS of vintage Chevrolets are to go to auction at a Nebraska dealership, some of which have just one mile on the clock. Collectors from around the world are expected to bid on about 500 cars and pick-ups owned by the former Lambrecht Chevrolet Company in Pierce, a small town in north eastern Nebraska.

The collection was compiled by Ray Lambrecht, who opened his dealership in 1946 and ran it for 50 years. He held onto unsold vehicles and trade-ins as a nest egg. Unlike most dealers who lowered prices to move out-of-date stock, he assumed, correctly, the older cars would appreciate over time. Ray, 95, and his wife, Mildred, 92, retired in 1996. They still live in town, but their health has declined. They decided to sell the collection so others could enjoy

them. The two-day auction, scheduled for September 28 and 29 will feature mostly unsold Chevrolets that have sat untouched for decades. They will be sold as-seen. About 50 have fewer than 20 miles on the odometer, some are so rare that no one has established a price. Some still have the manufacturers’ plastic on the seats. The most valuable, including a rare 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup, could fetch six-figure bids from collectors who

view them as works of art to display or as restoration projects. Auctioneer Yvette VanDerBrink says she has already received calls about the auction from as far as Iceland, Singapore and Brazil: “To find this many new, old vehicles is unheard of,” she said. The most valuable vehicles were stored at a nearby warehouse, until a heavy snow collapsed the roof. Some were damaged, but many were saved and moved elsewhere. The models at the

dealership are among the best preserved, despite the building giving way to bats and holes in the roof. The rest of the less valuable cars sat under trees at a nearby farm the Lambrechts owned, in the company of trade-in vehicles they did not want to resell. Although they are less well-preserved, they could still prove to be a big

draw for vintage car fans. “This kind of stuff is absolutely the rarest of the rare,” said Mark Gessler, president of the Historic Vehicle Association. “You can see plenty of cars that have been restored. We want to ensure that we’re celebrating the original craftsmanship, the original technique,” he said. “It’s a touchstone of our past.”

Obama’s New Addition

Barack Obama and his family have a new addition at the White House, a new dog called Sunny. The black Portuguese Water Dog joins the First Family’s as sister to Bo.

“Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo - full of energy and very affectionate - and the First Family picked her name because it fits her cheerful personality,” said a post on the White House blog. Bo joined the Obamas shortly after they moved into the White House in 2009, in keeping with a promise the President had made to his daughters the night he was elected in November 2008. But Bo, a male, was a little lonely, according to the post penned by Michelle Obama’s spokeswoman Hannah August. “So now, in addition to helping with those official duties, Bo takes on the important role of big brother!” said the blog. The White House announcement was accompanied by photos and a video set to music - of the roughly one-yearold canine frolicking on the South Lawn

of the White House with her new furry companion. When Bo joined the First Family, the Obamas explained that they picked a

Portuguese Water Dog because their younger daughter, 12-year-old Sasha, suffers from allergies and fur from this breed rarely causes reactions.

Beatles Mastermind Bernstein Dies

Sid Bernstein, the legendary music promoter who masterminded the Beatles’ historic New York concert at Shea Stadium and booked many of the industry’s top acts, died in his sleep, aged 95, from natural causes in hospital in New York.

For decades Bernstein excelled like few others at being everywhere and knowing

everybody. He worked with Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland and the Rolling Stones, Duke Ellington and Ray Charles, promoted Dion, Bobby Darin and Chubby Checker, and managed Esy Morales, the Rascals and Ornette Coleman. He was an early backer of Abba, setting up the Swedish group’s first American appearances. Bernstein was behind one of the first rock benefit shows, the 1970 ‘Winter

Festival for Peace’ at Madison Square Garden, which featured Hendrix and Peter, Paul and Mary. He also helped revive Tony Bennett’s career with a 1962 show at Carnegie Hall. But reading a British newspaper for a college course in 1963 gave Bernstein the start to his biggest break. The Beatles were just catching on in Britain, and it was “the right time to be reading an English newspaper”, Bernstein explained in a 2001 in-

terview with the music publication NY Rock Confidential. “So here I am reading little stories about this group from Liverpool that is causing a lot of ‘hysteria’. By the end of the course, I was so Beatle-ized by what I read, even though I did not hear a note, I said: ‘Gotta get ‘em’.” Bernstein couldn’t get his agency interested in the group, so he personally tracked down Brian Epstein and convinced the Beatles’ manager that he could line up a gig at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The Beatles were still unknown in the US and the price was cheap - $6,500 (£4,150) for two shows. By February 1964, Beatlemania had crossed over to the States and the band was set to play on The Ed Sullivan Show just three days before the Carnegie concerts. Once the Beatles hit, Bernstein was primed to get the bands that followed. He arranged shows for the Stones, the Animals and other British groups, while saving his biggest dreams for the Beatles. Everything for Bernstein was the latest and the greatest, and in 1965 he landed the group at Shea Stadium, the idea given to him by a ticket manager at Carnegie Hall It was rock’s first major stadium concert and some 55,000 fans lost their voices on an August night as the show broke box-office records.

Corrie Street Actor Sacked Over Rape Rap

Chris Fountain, the Coronation Street actor who sparked controversy after rapping online about rape has been sacked from the show. His contract was terminated due to his “unacceptable comments”, broadcaster ITV said.

The 25-year-old star was suspended from the soap last week after the foul-mouthed Youtube video which included lyrics about rape came to light. Fountain, who played Tommy Duckworth, met programme bosses to discuss his actions and it was announced later he had been sacked. His videos, showing him in his rap persona, The Phantom, featured the star discussing violent themes. The clips have now been removed from the website but featured Fountain wearing a Halloween mask and delivering lines such as “rape a b**** on her birthday”. Last week, Fountain, who

has also starred in Hollyoaks and Dancing On Ice, apologised and spoke of his regret over his actions. He said: “I would like to sincerely apologise for any offence I have caused. I am deeply ashamed by the lyrics and very much regret my behaviour. The videos were made over a year ago when I was experimenting with music and I’ve not done anything like it since and nor will I.” An ITV spokesman said: “Chris Fountain’s contract with ITV has been terminated as a result of the unacceptable comments he made in a number of online clips.” Fountain’s actions were condemned by charities, women’s groups and MPs. Fay Maxted, chief executive of the Survivors Trust - an agency working with over 135 specialist rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse support organisations - said last week: “He is a role model for young people. It almost seems like he’s making a joke of something that really isn’t funny.”

The Beatles played again at Shea in 1966, but turned down $1m from Bernstein to return in 1967 and never worked with him again, although he remained friendly with individual members after their breakup. Obsessed with getting the band back together, he proposed $100m in 1976 for a single concert. John Lennon, in a 1980 Playboy interview, dismissed Bernstein’s offer as “a commercial for Sid Bernstein, written with Jewish schmaltz and show biz and tears, dropping on one knee, like Al Jolson.” Like so many in the music business, Bernstein was the son of Jewish immigrants, born on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, raised in Harlem and hooked on sound and rhythm. He sneaked into the Apollo Theatre as a boy, booked local acts in high school and, while studying

journalism at Columbia University, ran a ballroom in Brooklyn that featured such Latino stars as Morales, Tito Puente and Marcelino Guera. Over the past 20 years, Bernstein’s best client became himself. He wrote two memoirs, It’s Sid Bernstein Calling and Not Just The Beatles, gave frequent talks about his life and even recorded an album of duets. At age 90, he started a Twitter account, sending regards to Ben Stiller and Lenny Kravitz, reporting on his lunch at the 2nd Avenue Deli and catching up with Beatles fans. “Twitterland!” he called out in one post. “Let’s all have a productive week. I have a few very interesting projects in the works and I’ll reveal them very soon.” Bernstein and his wife, Geraldine, were married for more than 40 years. They had six children.

Soldiers Reunited With Their Front Line Pets

An ex-royal marine is helping serving soldiers to bring their “adopted” canine companions home from the front line when they return from Afghanistan.

Pen Farthing was on patrol in the town of Nowzad in 2006 while serving with the Royal Marine Commandos in Afghanistan when his patrol broke up a dog fight. One of the dogs involved attached itself to the soldiers and became their constant companion, providing distraction from the pressures of the front line and helping them to de-stress. “Dog fighting is sadly a national sport here in Afghanistan,” Mr Farthing said. “We broke up that dogfight, not knowing that one of those dogs was going to adopt me. We named him Nowzad after the town we were in and that dog Nowzad befriended me and became my five minutes of just not being in Afghanistan. I would come in off patrol and just pretend I wasn’t there, so after six months I couldn’t bear to leave him behind.” He went on: “Lots of people deal with stress in different ways and I always relate it to people back home and if you have a bad day in the office you might get home and if you’ve got a dog, you look forward to taking him for a walk. So for me down there in Helmand province it was just the same. It was just not being on the frontline for those five or 10 minutes. That’s how I got through it.” With Nowzad rehomed in the UK, Mr Farthing returned to Kabul and founded the country’s only animal

welfare shelter. Together with fellow former British soldier Louise Hastie, he works with a team of Afghan veterinary staff to reunite troops with their dogs in a country where he says dogs are often regarded as dirty and solely associated with diseases such as rabies. The Nowzad animal charity has also recently started to send dogs back to the USA, helping troops suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Ms Hastie said many soldiers suffering from the trauma of war have seen the animals on the front lines and there is “an experience shared with them”. “It’s something both dog and soldier have, familiar territory,” she said. “And often it might be that the dog is the only one which will understand. The dog isn’t going to talk back, it’s going to be there for you regardless of what you say, and it’s a gut feeling of ‘the dog knows what I’m going thorough’.” Even more poignant for Mr Farthing, is the story of British soldier Private Conrad Lewis, who was shot and killed by a Taliban sniper in 2011 just four months into his first tour of duty. Private Lewis, of 4th Battalion The Parachute Regiment, had spent the months before his death writing to his parents, explaining how much a dog was helping him deal with the horrors of battle. His parents were determined to respect their son’s wish to bring Peg home and asked Mr Farthing for his help. “We had no idea where Peg was and it’s not information that’s given out,” said Mr Farthing. “We had to pull in a few favours to find exactly where Conrad’s troops actually were and if they still had the dog.

We mentioned we wanted to get Peg out of Helmand and just over two years ago now we were able to reunite the family with the dog he was always talking about.” Since Mr Farthing started the clinic and shelter three years ago, his charity has helped over 550 soldiers get their animals home and of-

fered treatment to countless more: “Some of these dogs are straight off the street in Kabul, it might be Afghans who’ve brought them to us or it could be westerners who are working here. They’ve seen a dog in distress, so they bring it to us at the Nowzad shelter. The dogs are then vaccinated and neutered and they

come here while we try and find a home for them, maybe with locals or in the West. “Other dogs here are waiting to go to their soldiers, some of these dogs have been found on the frontline, the soldier wants to take the dog home with them so they’ll then bring them to us,” he added.

96 Stone Man “Rescued” From Bedroom

Khalid Mohsin Shaeri, a Saudi man weighing 96st (610kg) had to be airlifted to hospital after being unable to leave his bedroom for two-and-a-half years. The 20-yearold was flown from the southern city of Jazan to a hospital in Riyadh on King Abdullah’s orders.

The “rescue” plan had been postponed for six months until a specially-made bed was delivered from the US. Saudi Arabia’s health ministry worked with civil defence and the Saudi Red Cross to organise his evacuation after part of his home was demolished so he could be brought down from the second floor. A forklift truck was

used to carry Mr Shaeri to an ambulance and on to a waiting aircraft. Minister of Health Dr Abdullah al Rabeeah called the king’s efforts a “humanitarian gesture”. Mr Shaeri, who weighs the same as two baby elephants or eight averagesized men, was reported to have a brother and sister who are also overweight, but able to walk.

Hiding in plain Sight – new mammal discovered

A RACCOON-SIZEd creature with a teddy bear face has been identified as a new species of mammal. The olinguito lives in the mountainous forests of Ecuador and Colombia, where it leaps through the trees at night. Feeding mostly on fruit, it weighs about two pounds (0.9kg) and is about 14in (36cm) long with an equally long tail. The olinguito belongs to a grouping of large creatures that includes dogs, cats and bears.

The creature was known about, one of them was kept at the National Zoo in Washington for a while - but it had been mistaken for a similar animal: “It’s been kind of hiding in plain sight for a long time,” said Kristofer

Helgen, the Smithsonian’s curator of mammals who made the announcement in Washington. The Washington zoo’s olinguito, named Ringerl, was mistaken for a sister species, the olingo. Ringerl was shipped from zoo to zoo in the US from 1967 to 1976 to try to get it to breed with other olingos – but it never did: “It turns out she wasn’t fussy,” Mr Helgen said. “She wasn’t the right species.” Mr Helgen first realised olinguitos were a different species from olingos when he was looking at pelts and skeletons in a museum. He led a team to South America in 2006: “How is it different? In almost every way that you can look at it,” he said; adding that olinguitos are smaller, have shorter tails, a rounder face, tinier ears and darker bushier fur. “It looks kind of like a fuzzball,” Mr Helgen said. “Kind of like a cross between a teddy bear and a house cat.”


www.tenerife-weekly.com The research published by Child Poverty Action Group and co-funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation reveals the cost of raising a child has risen by 4% in the last year to almost £150,000.

The study found it now costs a minimum of £148,000 to bring up a child to the age of 18 and meet their minimum needs, including childcare and housing, which is around £160 a week. The minimum necessary cost for raising a child rose by 4% in 2013, but in comparison average earnings rose by just 1.5%, the minimum wage increased by 1.8%, and child benefit stayed the same. The study also found the value of both child benefit and child tax credit relative to the costs of raising a child has actually decreased in the last year. Many low-income families have also seen cuts in housing support with the introduction of changes such as the spare-room subsidy. At the same time, working families have had to cope with increased childcare costs, which have risen by 5.9% in the last year. Alison Garnham, chief executive of Child Poverty Action Group, said: “This research paints a stark picture of families being squeezed by rising prices and stagnant wages, yet receiving ever-diminishing support from the Government over the course of the last year. Every parent knows it’s getting harder to pay for the essentials their children need, and they don’t feel like politicians see them as a priority. “Child benefit and child tax credit have been cut at the very time families need them most. Families are getting worse off and parents know it. If every child in Britain can grow up healthy, well-educated and an active participant in their community, we all benefit from a more prosperous economy. This was well

£150,000 – The Cost Of Raising A Child

understood by the post-war generation who prioritised universal benefits for all children despite being much deeper in debt than we are today. As we move towards a ‘living standards election’, now would be a good time to renew our national commitment to all our children.” Katie Schmuecker, policy and research manager at Joseph Rowntree Foundation, added: “The next election is likely to be the first since the 1930’s where living standards are lower than the last poll. All parties must go to the country with policies and a commitment to help the prospects of low-income families. The risk and costs otherwise are enormous. Child poverty costs the Treasury £29bn a year - a price we can scarcely afford to pay, particularly in the current economic context.” The coalition insists it has to slash the welfare bill to reduce the burden on the taxpayer and to rebalance the system so that it pays to work. A Government spokesman said: “We know times are tough, and we are securing a recovery for everyone who wants to work hard. That is why we are taking action to help families with the cost of living by cutting income tax for 25 million people, which will save a typical taxpayer over £700, taking 2.7 million out of income tax altogether and freezing council tax for five years, saving a typical household £600.”

Court Gives Go Ahead For Sterilisation A London High Court judge has agreed to the sterilisation of a man as it is “in his best interests”. It is the first time a UK court has made such a decision.

Referred just as “DE”, the 37-year-old has an IQ of 40, meaning he has the mental age of a child aged between six and nine. The judge confirmed a vasectomy could take place after hearing that DE does not want to become a father again, and another child could cause him “psychological harm”. He already has a young son, born in 2010, with his girlfriend. Experts said DE, although capable of consenting to sexual relationships, could not

properly make decisions about contraception. They said he could not be relied on to use condoms or other birth control methods effectively. The case came to court because of evidence that DE lacks the capacity to decide whether or not to agree to the sterilisation. A routine was in place to stop the man meeting his girlfriend without supervision to “keep them safe”, the court was told. There were worries that the man’s partner - who also has learning difficulties could become pregnant again. The man’s mother - as well as expert witnesses - all said he was adamant he does not want another child. It is hoped the vasectomy will give the man greater independence

in his relationship and that he can see his girlfriend without supervision. A local NHS trust made the court application for sterilisation with the support of DE’s parents and his GP. However, some critics have said giving consent for the vasectomy could pave the way for sterilisation of other people with learning difficulties. While Judge Mrs Justice Eleanor King acknowledged the sensitivities of the case, she said her decision required “strong justification”. She added: “In my judgement it is overwhelmingly in his best interests to have a vasectomy.” Mental health charity Mencap previously said it would support the decision if all the man’s interests were properly weighed up.

gotta Be in it to Win it – How Some Lottery Winners reacted to their Windfall news

When the full amount is read out, Ms Tyler responds: ‘You’re telling me I’m the only winner of the lottery and I’ve won £5 million pounds?’ as someone is heard yelling in the background. The operator sounds almost as shocked as Ms Tyler and says: ‘From what you are telling me with those numbers, yes, that’s right, there was only one jackpot winner tonight. Yes, that’s right. Wow. I know it will take a while. It’s a lot to take in. Wow.’ Reflecting on that unforgettable moment, she said; ‘Even now I get goose bumps hearing the call - it’s still so exciting. I can remember innocently saying, “Can you just tell me how much it would be?” and when the lady on the other end said, “five million, eight hundred and nineteen thousand, eight hundred and six pounds” I thought I must be hearing things.’ In another recording, Carly Wiggett calls to check if the EuroMillions ticket she bought with her friend Becky Witt, both from Dartford, Kent, is a winner. When it is confirmed the ecstatic girl tells the operator that they only bought the ticket together because of their horoscopes.

A

LMOST all of us dream about what we would spend our money on if we ever won the lottery. It’s hard to imagine what it would be like to suddenly find out that you have actually won millions. So to give us a taste the National Lottery has released audio of the moment five lucky winners found out that they were Britain’s latest millionaires.

The common denominator is disbelief at their new found riches followed by the joy at the realisation that they will soon have a seven-figure bank account. One player, Tracy Tyler, from Epping Forrest, Essex, hit the jackpot in July, winning £5,819,806. Her voice slightly trembling, she asked the Camelot representative: ‘I’ve just got six numbers on the lottery and I’m having a brain spasm, can you help me?’ She tells the operator she’s got her ticket in front of her and she’s ‘shaking like a leaf’.

She said her star sign told her to ‘team up’ with someone, and her friend’s said to play the lottery, so they bought a ticket together and chose the numbers at random. Andy Garth, from Middlesborough, scooped £1 million in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle on Christmas Day last year. When his winning ticket was confirmed he yelled ‘Yes’ hysterically and declares his love for the operator. As he laughs out loud, he says: ‘Oh my god I love you.’ Mr Garth told the Camelot rep it was also his birthday on Boxing Day, so the win couldn’t’ have come at a better time. The National Lottery has made around 30 millionaires a month across the last year, as well as numerous other major prize winners.

“meet Britain’s Leading paris Jackson – “doesn’t Have a Life” Ladies” – m&S Campaign

PARIS Jackson is “devastated” over her father’s death and “doesn’t feel like she has a life”, according to Michael Jackson’s ex-wife. debbie Rowe cried as she was questioned in a LA court about the 15-yearold’s suicide attempt.

“Her father is dead. I almost lost my daughter,” said Rowe, who confirmed that the teenager tried to kill herself in June. “She is devastated. She doesn’t have a life. She doesn’t feel like she has a life anymore.” The 54-year-old was appearing for her second day at the court case brought by Jackson’s family against concert promoter AEG Live. Jackson’s mother, Katherine, is suing AEG, claiming it failed to properly investigate Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of giving her son an overdose of anaesthetic in 2009. Rowe also admitted she does not have a close relationship with her son, Prince Jackson, she said she rarely saw the 16-year-old, but added: “We don’t hate each

other.” Katherine Jackson has legal custody of the children but Rowe told the court that Paris stays with her on weekends. Debbie Rowe married Jackson in 1996 and the couple divorced in 1999.She recalled how she and Jackson agreed to have children: “I said, ‘what’s the thing that makes you the saddest?’ He said, ‘I never had any children.’” Rowe told him: “Let me have a baby with you. You can have the joy of being a parent.”

She said the star thought about it for a few weeks before agreeing. AEG Live has said Jackson, who was preparing for comeback concerts in London when he died, had prescription drug and addiction problems for years before entering an agreement with the company. It has also said that it did not hire or supervise Murray and could not have foreseen that the doctor would have been a danger to Jackson.

ANNIE Leibovitz, the world renowned fashion photographer has captured a selection of images of “Britain’s leading ladies” for a campaign for the new Marks & Spencer collection.

The “Meet Britain’s Leading Ladies” campaign, launched in September, features photographs of successful British women from various fields. Among those photographed are actress Dame Helen Mirren, artist Tracey Emin, author Monica

Ali, Olympic champion boxer Nicola Adams and creative director of US Vogue Grace Coddington. Ballerina Darcey Bussell, supermodel Karen Elson, singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding and charity campaigner Katie Piper also appear in the latest M&S campaign. Patrick BousquetChavanne, executive director for marketing and business development at the retailer, said: “We wanted this campaign to signal a new and confident tone of voice to introduce autumn. Annie was the perfect choice

to shoot a campaign of this magnitude. Her unmistakable, signature style, with its truly dramatic aesthetic was exactly what we needed to communicate the essence of the campaign and of the new M&S. Annie’s photography has become synonymous with defining key moments in the history of brands over the years and, as such, we feel that this campaign is the ideal way to illustrate M&S’ move into a new era.” However, there is no sign of model Twiggy, who has starred in M&S adverts for the past several years.

The Curse Of Bradley Cooper To “Different Strokes” Get On His Bike? reversal of their on screen roles, she introduced Todd Bridges, who played streetwise Willis to the drug when he was 14.

Anyone who watched TV in the ‘80’s will remember the much loved American sitcom “Different Strokes”. It was the story of the rich White family the Drummonds, who take in 2 poor black orphans from Harlem after their mother who worked for the family, died. With it’s funny scripts, likeable characters, catchy theme tune and quotable catch phrase “what you talkin bout Willis”, it was immensely popular and lasted for 8 seasons.

You’d think that the stars of such a popular show that lasted so long would be set for life, comfortable and relatively happy ever after. But it seems that fate had something else in store for much of this sitcom’s cast almost as if they were cursed...

Undoubtedly the most famous of the child stars, he remained small throughout his life due to a kidney disease. He had many run-ins with the law and his attempts to keep working often led to sad roles in which he was ridiculed. Bankrupt, he ended up working as a shopping mall security guard. He died at the tender age of 42 after hitting his head in a fall.

After the show ended she fell ever deeper into the world of drink and drugs, she was arrested for shoplifting and forging Valium prescriptions, and ended up in a softcore porn movie before dying of a drug overdose in 1999, her son never got over the tragic circumstances of her death and, after following a similar pattern of drink and drug abuse, he committed suicide just before Mother’s day in 2010.

Played Willis Jackson, the older of the 2 brothers, he became addicted to crack, when the series ended and was arrested often for pimping and drug dealing amongst other things and tried rehab many times. Even being arrested and charged for the murder of one of his drug dealers gangof which he was eventually acquitted, didn’t stop this downward spiral but eventually he cleaned himself up for good and has been sober for 20 years as he told Oprah on her “where are they now” special last Sunday. He is the only surviving member of the Drummonds Conrad Bain who played screen dad Phillip Drummond passed away peacefully earlier this year.

Life for former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane and his family seems content. Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies. After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease.

Hangover heartthrob Bradley Cooper has signed up to produce and probably star in the upcoming Biopic about disgraced champion cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The movie “Red Blooded American”, from Warner Bros and director Jay Roach, will tell the tale of one of the biggest sports scandals of all time. Lance Armstrong won the Tour de France a record breaking 7 consecutive times between 1999 and 2005, before being stripped of all titles and trophies after being exposed for, and

later admitting to, illegal doping. Although he’s not confirmed as one of the stars, it is believed that Cooper will play either Tyler Hamilton, the cyclist within Armstrong’s inner circle who blew the whistle on the dop-

ing scandal on “60 minutes”, or more likely, due to more than a passing resemblance, Armstrong himself. Reports that Martin Lawrence will be slipping back into his “Big Mama’s House” bodysuit to play Oprah Winfrey are as yet unconfirmed.

Superheroes = Super Cash!!

In case you’ve spent the last decade on Krypton or locked up in Arkham Asylum-movies about superheroes are doing pretty good these days, a fact the studios are well aware of, and recently suits are going to increasingly more extreme and expensive lengths, to ensure the stars that the public associate with their favourite comic book hero-keep wearing the Spandex.

Of course big pay packets are nothing new, however, often in the past, money was thrown at megastars to entice them aboard a “silly kids movie” in the hope of lending some credibility to the movie Jack Nicholson received a record breaking amount for his portrayal of the Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989). Using his celebrity status he secured depending on which net article you believe, a $6m paycheck plus a nice percentage of the profits (he allegedly took home $100m quite a hefty amount and a record, way back in ‘89). It’s even suggested that in a particularly savvy move he got Warner Brothers to agree to pay him a percentage of the profits from ALL sequels-which depending on how good his lawyers are could even stretch to the Nolan/Bale “Dark Knight” trilogy!! Marlon Brando got a nice $3.7m for two weeks work in “Superman” (1978) to play Jor El -Supe’s real daddy, another record wage!! So, nothing new then, but recently film studios are seemingly determined to wring every last drop of earnings from these franchisee’s potential, by securing the stars for years to come in

multiple-movie deals for big bucks. Robert Downey JR who Hollywood wouldn’t touch with a barge pole for a few years, has played Iron Man, 4 times (5 if you count “The Incredible Hulk” cameo). His contract with Marvel ran out after Iron Man 3 and many feared that would be his last appearance as ol’ Shellhead but recent announcements confirmed he’s signed for Avengers 2 and 3 (no confirmation as yet for IM4, but 3 was a massive commercial success so I reckon they’ll throw more money at him) making him the highest paid actor in Hollywood!! Hugh Jackman has been flexing his Adamatium claws for 13 years now 3 X-Men movies, 2 Wolverines and a cameo in “X-Men 1st Class”. He’s also back for a starring role in that movies sequel “Days of Future Past”. Now his deal with Fox is ending the studio has offered him $100m to play the mutant 4 more times! Whether that’s X-Men, Wolverine movies, cameos or, most exciting of all, Wolverine has been an Avenger-it’s unknown. So, with all this evidence, we shouldn’t be surprised about the emerging rumour that, although he’s turned his back on the role after the end of Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy Christian Bale has been offered $50m for just one more go at donning the Batcowl to face-off against Henry Cavill’s Superman in the upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel” true or not-one things for sure, if you are an actor who isn’t allergic to rubber or spandex and would like to be set up for life-get scanning the comic books for a character you can make yourself synonymous with...Kerching!!

PARALyMPIC star Oscar Pistorius will go on trial on March 3rd next year over the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. In his latest court appearance, he was formally charged and told that his bail conditions remained the same.

Court documents show that more than 100 witnesses will be called to give evidence at the trial, including one of Pistorius’ ex-girlfriends. Pistorius appeared to be very emotional at the hearing, and appeared to be praying with his brother and sister before the proceedings started. The three siblings held hands in a small circle and at one point Pistorius wiped his face with a tissue. His brother Carl later tweeted a photograph of Pistorius and Ms Steenkamp, adding: “Remembered like yesterday.

My life was impacted by u @ reevasteenkamp & the lady u were! Always close to our hearts.” The 26-year-old double amputee is accused of killing Ms Steenkamp, who would have turned 30 last Monday, in a shooting incident at Pistorius’ home in February. Pistorius denies he committed murder and says he shot Ms Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder. The case was sent to the High Court in Pretoria. A judge will preside over the trial and ultimately pronounce the world-famous athlete innocent or guilty. South Africa does not have trial by jury.

The mandatory sentence for someone convicted of premeditated murder in South Africa is life with a minimum of 25 years in prison. Meanwhile, Ms Steenkamp’s uncle has said he has already forgiven Pistorius for killing her. Mike Steenkamp said the family have coped with her death by concentrating on her life rather than how she died. In an interview on ITV’s Daybreak, Mr Steenkamp said: “I think from the beginning and onset that we decided that we could never be side tracked from Reeva’s life, and I think that’s helped us tremendously.”

Sharples in Session By John Sharples

More Things You May Not Know I have run a couple of articles in the past with fun facts about the Islands and over the last few weeks I have collected a few more.

1. One of the smallest hotels in the world is situated on the Island of El Hierro It only has four rooms! 2. The Canaries are the best Spanish community at recycling most of its water. 3. Christopher Columbus stopped in the Canaries at a time when Mount Teide was erupting 4. 4 of the 14 Spanish national parks are to be found in the Canary Islands. 5. There is a wind and wa-

ter energy station on the Island of El Hierro which makes the island self-sufficient in clean energy. I wonder if it is any cheaper than our electricity. 6. The oldest golf club in Spain is situated in Gran Canaria 7. The Canary Islands are home to the oldest species of crab in the world 8. Agatha Christie visited Tenerife in 1927 and wrote two stories that were set in the Canaries. One of them was called “The Man from Tenerife”! 9. The Canary Islands are thought to have risen out of the sea about 23 million years ago. 10. The pine trees on the island have the amazing ability to resist fire!

Overheating Are you struggling in the summer heat? Here are some fab ways to keep cool!

If you put a your pillow in the freezer an hour or two before you go to bed and put a few plastic shopping bags over it, to keep ice from forming on the fabric, you will get a much cooler start to bedtime. Also use silk or satin pillowcases, and satin sheets. These fabrics will feel smoother and cooler as you sleep.

Try Placing an icepack behind your head or run cold water over your wrists for about 20 seconds on each wrist. This will cool you down for about 1 hour My favourite one is this and I use it regularly. Fill your bath with lukewarm water and get in. Once you are used to the temperature, put a bag or two of Ice into the water and the water will gradually cool down. This is extremely effective and the cool down lasts for a couple of hours.

Start Them Early

All children should be given some chores to do in the house in return for their pocket money. It helps them to grow up with a modicum of understanding that you have to work for things in life and that nothing is handed to you on a plate.

Now, even your baby or toddler can help clean the house with the “Baby Mop” It is a clever way of cleaning your floors. It’s basically a baby romper suit with mops attached onto the arms and legs, so that as a baby crawls, it cleans. The makers of this lunatic idea say that the 25 quid baby mop will teach your baby a strong work ethic early on in their life, encourage them not to drop food and give them a workout, causing them to sleep better. The baby mop is

available in sizes from 3 to 12 months and the makers claim that it will save money and time on house cleaning. They

also claim that it will give you more free time to do things you enjoy. I have never heard of anything so ridiculous in my life!

Gibraltar Primark In Tenerife

This little outcrop of rock is at the centre of much fuss at the moment. It is all a lot of huff and puff as the Spanish Prime Minister is using it all as a press

smokescreen.

He is in the middle of a fight for survival as he has been accused of financial naughty’s. I suspect that the whole idiotic affair will blow over when he feels safe again.

Light Margarine

If you buy a light margarine take a look at the ingredients. One of the main additives is WATER.

You are getting less margarine for your money and when you come to spread it onto your bread or toast you invariably end up putting more of the stuff onto it. I have recently converted back to butter. I find that I need less of it on my toast or sandwiches and consequently, I am taking in roughly the same amount of calories.

There has been much conjecture about when or whether Primark will open in Tenerife. I got a bit fed up with all the usual gossip so I went to the big Meridiano centre where Primark is supposed to be opening and asked two or three members of staff.

The cleaner, the manager and a sales girl all told me that Primark will be opening in October where Intersport used to be. Now, you would think that they would know, wouldn’t you? It turns out that C & A is expanding and that the

area will be going to them. This doesn’t mean that our dreams of a new Primark are all pure fantasy. There will still be room for a store in the centre. There is just one problem. The Primark website states that there are no plans to open any new stores in this region. This doesn’t appear to be accurate information as there is no doubt that they applied for an opening licence in Tenerife and that their planned opening was late 2013 so the fans of the store should soon be hearing something. Keep your fingers crossed as the barmy Primani army will be advancing on the store on its first day of opening.

no go-go Bank Switches in goa made easier

GOA, the popular holiday resort in India, has banned dance bars as it tries to keep control of the destination once famous as a raver’s paradise, in an effort to clean up its image. The state has been tightening controls on nightclubs and outdoor parties over the last few years, following a series of high-profile crimes which includes the rape and murder of a British teenager in 2008. Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, elected in the south western state last year, has made cleaning up Goa’s palm tree-lined beaches a priority to make them more family-friendly: “Dance bars will not be allowed in Goa. There has been a lot of image-beating for the state due to the existence of drugs and prostitution on the beaches. We will clean it up,” Mr Parrikar announced on Thursday. His administration has come up with

a series of measures to safeguard foreign tourists and has ordered a police presence on the beaches until midnight. Previously police would leave after sunset. Goa, once a laid-back hippy beach hangout known for drugs, free love and music, retains its image as a free flowing oasis in the midst of straitlaced India and attracts 2.3 million foreign and domestic visitors annually. But its sleazy and criminal sides were exposed in 2008 by the death of 15-year-old British teenager Scarlett Keeling, who was raped by two men and left for dead after she consumed a cocktail of illegal drugs at a beach cafe. Her death prompted a crackdown on nightclubs and rave parties, many of which were forced to close or finish early. “Silent discos” - in which party-goers wear headphones to listen to the music - have developed as a way to work around the restrictions on outdoor noise.

FROM September, virtually all banks and building societies will cut the time needed to transfer current accounts between providers. Customers will be able to move their accounts within seven days, drastically cutting the current 30-day period.

The Payments Council confirmed the launch date of September 16, in a scheme expected to increase competition for providers and create better deals for customers. Around 33 bank and building society brands

Question One: What is the name of the historic pass into the north-west frontier of Pakistan from Afghanistan?

Question Two: From which location did the BBC make its very first televised broadcast in 1936?

Question Three: What is the third planet in distance from the Sun? Question Four: What are spring and neap tides respectively? Question Five: On which continent did the tobacco plant originate? Question Six: The US state of Florida is known as what? Question Seven: Which area of physiology is studied by a cytologist? Question Eight: What does the word “rabbi” literally mean? Question Nine: In computing terms, what is RAM? Question Ten: The Red Sea separates which two continents? Question Eleven: Mozzarella cheese comes from which animal? Question Twelve: Animals that live in water and on land are called what?

which make up most current accounts in the marketplace have signed up to the agreement. The new switching service also includes facilities for all outgoing and incoming payments to be moved over to a customer’s new current account, with payments made accidentally to the old account automatically redirected for 13 months after the switch. Consumers will be refunded interest and charges if anything goes wrong. Adrian Kamellard, chief executive of the Payments Council, said: “As final preparations are made for launch we look forward to a new era of account switching which will lead to greater choice for customers and wider competition in the marketplace.” The Payments Council confirmed that the new switching guarantee does require that the old current account must be closed as part of the changeover. Current account

providers will display details of the new guarantee in branches and on their websites. Rachel Springall, spokeswoman for financial information website Moneyfacts, said: “With only one month to go, we have already seen banks launch some incentives to entice new customers.” But she added people considering making the change to another provider should bear overall benefits in mind rather than initial perks: “Once an institution has you as a current account customer it is usually for the foreseeable future, so they are likely to offer you other products such as cards, loans and mortgages while you have a relationship with them. Assessing what you need from a current account on outset is vital.” The extent to which the new rules will spur more people into action is not yet clear, but recent evidence has indicated that consumers have been getting more fed up with their current account providers. The financial ombudsman recently reported that complaints about current accounts had rocketed by more than a third over the last year, following two years of falls.

gardening and Nature By Steve Andrews - aka Green Bard Everyone knows that bananas grow on Tenerife because you can’t miss them. There are huge plantations all along the coastal parts of the island but what other fruit trees can be grown here? There are a lot more than you might at first think!

The north of the island provides a cooler climate and in the lower mountain areas there are all sorts of fruit bearing trees you might expect to find in Britain but not think you would discover here. Plums, peaches, cherries, apples and pears can all be grown on Tenerife.. I remember finding a plum tree growing semi-wild in some wooded ground at the side of the road in Aguamansa some years back. The yellow fruit were so abundant and ripe that they were weighing the branches down and some had fallen to the ground. Apricots are often grown on the island as well. The avocado tree does well on Tenerife and an enterprising farmer has just planted a whole field of them near where I live in San Marcos. There are also many acres of avocado trees in Tigaiga in the north of the island. Mangos are grown all over Tenerife. I remember some growing in Costa del Silencio where I used to live when I first came to the island. This tree can become very large and reach as much as 30 m in height though they are usually much smaller when they start to produce their delicious fruit. Of course citrus fruit grow well on Tenerife too and oranges, lemons, limes, tangerines and grapefruit can all be seen growing here. All these fruit are a great source of vitamin C so make a healthy addition to our diets. Figs do well all over Tenerife and are often found on abandoned

Almond nut and flowers

farmland. You even see them growing at roadsides and along pathways. I always think a fresh juicy fig tastes so much better than the dried ones you can buy! Mulberries can be found growing in many parts of the island. The leaves of this tree are harvested as food for silkworms. The berries can be eaten raw or used in pies and jams. Mulberry wine is another possibility. One fruit tree you won’t see in the UK is the Japanese medlar or loquat. They grow very well in Tenerife and provide the first harvest of fruit each year. They are very popular and get sold at markets and shops that sell fruit and vegetables. I prefer them straight off the tree though! More exotic fruits such as jackfruit, guavas and mameys enjoy the subtropical climate of the Canary Islands. And then there are the papaya trees which usually produce a lot of fruit and look very ornamental with their large leaves and fruit that hang down from around the trunk of the tree. They can be grown

from seed. The sea grape is an interesting tree with edible fruit. It has large circular evergreen leaves and bears clusters of fruit that turn from green to purplish-pink. They look very like bunches of grapes and are good to eat though they have a large seed inside each one. The sea grape is very drought resistant and doesn’t mind salty spray from the sea. Because of this it is often planted at the tops of beaches and in coastal gardens. There a lot of these trees in the upper part of Playa de las Teresitas and the ripe

Grapefruit

Sweet chestnuts grow well in the north of the island and are another very popular food crop that is harvested each year. Roasted chestnuts are perhaps more popular here in Tenerife than they are in Britain nowadays? Walnuts are another nut tree that can be grown in Tenerife. I know where there is a large one in El Tanque. The tree that is the source of macadamia nuts will also grow on Tenerife and can be seen in some parks and gardens. It comes originally from Australia but grows well in the island’s subtropical climate. The flowers are very fragrant and the nuts are delicious raw or roasted. As you can see from this article Tenerife certainly offers a very wide variety of fruit and nuts.

fruit fall all over the sand there. Sea grape fruit can be eaten fresh or made into jams and jellies. As well as the many types of fruit trees there are the nuts, which after all are really a type of fruit themselves. Almonds grow on rocky volcanic hillsides in many parts of the island and when they come into flower each spring they make a most picturesque sight. It is not surprising that in some places such as Santiago del Teide that specially organized “Almond walks” are organized. The nuts are very popular as an ingredient in many traditional pastries and cakes.

More About The Loquat

The loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) is known as the “nispero” in Spanish.

It is a member of the Rosaceae or rose family. There are many cultivars of this tree and the flesh of the fruit can be yellow or white. The white flowers of the loquat are quite strongly perfumed and it is grown for its blossoms and ornamental qualities as well as its fruit. It is a very unusual fruit

tree because it flowers in winter and the loquats are ripe by spring. The loquat came originally from southeastern China but it was introduced to Japan where it became widespread. It is grown in many parts of the world today including Afghanistan, Iraq, Kenya, India, Pakistan and Hawaii. The loquat is often mentioned in ancient Chinese texts.

Also known as the Bard of Ely, the Green Bard has a Green Beard, as can be seen in the photo. He is an expert on nature and loves to write about wildlife and conservation. He has a very wide knowledge of edible plants, foraging and herbs.

He was quoted as a “Weed expert” in The Ecologist. The Green Bard, though originally from Cardiff in Wales, is currently based in Tenerife where he has successfully reared many Monarch butterflies on plants grown on his apartment balcony. In May, 2012, at the English Library in Puerto de la Cruz he gave a talk on the Flora and Fauna of Tenerife to a full house and has been invited back to be a guest speaker again.

Tenerife Weekly - 23rd August 2013 - 29th August 2013

Aquarius 20 January to 18 February

The Aquarius Full Moon might coincide with a completed goal or effort rewarded. It could be time to celebrate a positive achievement. Meanwhile, an upbeat aspect could bring a work opportunity that includes the potential to earn more. Listen to your intuition on this, but go for it if it feels right. Also this week, crucial information might come to light concerning joint financial affairs, enabling you to make the right decisions. Your health seems good but for a tendency to indulge.

Pisces 19 February to 20 March

You may have ample opportunity to satisfy your heart’s desires. Influences are positive for sharing time with a loved one. Enjoy their company and the pleasure that togetherness can bring. However, a strong desire for freedom could compel you to break away from routine. Find a gentle way to honor this urge and you will not only let off steam but also avoid taking any drastic measures. Later, relationship matters come into focus and encourage conversation and mutually beneficial ideas.

Aries 21 March to 19 April

A sociable Full Moon could make this a good week for a party or celebration. Feelings may come spilling out, so be careful what you say and how you say it. A bolt out of the blue could bring you a small windfall or other surprise. You might find yourself extra busy whether you’re working for yourself or others. Regarding health, you might be eager to get back on track if you’ve lost your way concerning a diet or exercise routine.

Taurus 20 April to 20 May

A volatile influence early in the week might affect your career outlook or professional plans. Don’t overreact to a situation that could seem relatively minor a few days later. An intuitive hunch regarding a deal or contract might pay off. Meanwhile, renewed focus on your romance and creative zone brings fresh potential for good times. A meeting with someone on your wavelength could bring hope for a love relationship. However, remember that all that glitters may not be gold this weekend.

Gemini 21 May to 21 June

There’s an unpredictable element to the start of the week. The Aquarius Full Moon could highlight a desire for adventure and a chance to explore new options, especially those with a scientific or futuristic slant. Also be prepared for a surprise in the form of a meeting that might have romantic potential. Home and family matters get the green light, too, so you might want to clear out clutter or redecorate where necessary. Entertaining should be lively and fun.

Cancer 22 June to 22 July

Don’t go off on a spending spree at the time of the Full Moon. If you feel an urge to splurge, consider buying smaller luxuries instead of something expensive. There might be good news on the job or career front, as a lucky influence could mean you’re in the right place at the right time to take advantage of a special opportunity. You’ll need to be quick, though! Later you’ll be busy with communication matters. Consider advertising your skills and services.

Leo 23 July to 22 August

Feelings may be unleashed early on when the Full Moon brings out hidden emotions. Try not to overreact if you find yourself getting irritated or annoyed. If you need to make a decision, wait a day or two before you do so. There’s the chance of surprise when an upbeat influence could bring an inspired idea or offer your way. If it feels good, go for it. Financially, it might be time to take a look at opportunities to create new streams of income.

Virgo 23 August to 22 September

High expectations may coincide with great satisfaction, especially in your social life. Don’t let negative fears affect your feelings, particularly in a romantic relationship. The antidote to this may be to open your heart with love. An interesting transit could bring a surprise your way. However, it might be in the form of an opportunity that you’ll need to grab quickly. As the Sun and Mercury move into your sign, your energy and enthusiasm reveal you’ll be back in charge again.

Libra 23 September to 23 October

There could be a playful, romantic influence around early this week when the Full Moon in your fun and leisure sector encourages the sharing of feelings. There’s also the chance that an unexpected meeting could have soul-mate potential if you’re willing to move outside your comfort zone. However, despite having so many social opportunities, you’re entering a cycle in which you might prefer to spend more time alone, recharging your batteries and reflecting on your next moves.

Scorpio 24 October to 21 November

Trust your gut reactions to point you in the right direction. You may find that digging into your past connects you with values that provide the right code of conduct now. Interests associated with travel, adventure, or study might proceed favorably, too. Be on the alert for an unexpected offer or opportunity that could open a new door for you. Your social life gets up to speed. It’s a good time to consider networking as a way to enhance your romantic and business opportunities.

Sagittarius 22 November to 21 December

Business and financial moves can produce great results if you play your cards right. Be careful when it comes to taking risks, however. An opportunity might look good, but you could stand to lose more than you gain if you aren’t careful. Otherwise, the outlook for career matters is much enhanced as Mercury and Virgo move into the top spot of your chart. You might be in the limelight, but this could be a good thing, especially if it gets you noticed by key people.

Capricorn 22 december to 19 January

A Full Moon in your personal financial zone could encourage you to make a risky financial move. It might be best to leave it for a few days and see how you feel further down the line. On the other hand, a shrewd purchase could net you a bargain. Relationships seem generally fun and upbeat, and your social life is bubblier, too. You’ll find that you can further your practical and romantic goals by tempering drive and ambition with charm and grace.

area 51 – officially exists

FOR the first time ever, newly declassified CIA documents refer openly to the top secret parcel of land in central Nevada, called Area 51, the global focus of conspiracy theories, rumours of crashed UFOs, alien bodies and futuristic air force projects.

The proof comes in a US government history of the U2 spy plane programme, obtained by George Washington University’s National Security Archive through a public records request. It includes an unedited map of the secret site chosen to test the jet in the 1950s but never identified on any government map. Researcher Jeffrey Richelson first reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of Area 51 had been removed. He requested the history again in 2005 and, after an eight year wait; he finally received it with the references restored. “President Eisenhower also approved the addition of this strip of wasteland, known by its map designation as Area 51, to the Nevada Test Site,” the history reads. “The outlines of Area 51 are shown on current unclassified maps as a small rectangular area adjoining the northeast corner of the much larger Nevada Test Site. To make the new facility in the middle of nowhere sound more attractive to his workers, Kelly Johnson called it the Paradise Ranch, which was soon shortened to the Ranch.” Officials have already acknowledged in passing the

existence of the facility, but Mr Richelson believes the new document proves CIA is becoming less secretive about Area 51: “It marks an end of official secrecy about the facts of Area 51,” he told The Las Vegas Sun. “It opens up the possibility that future accounts of this and other aerial projects will be less redacted, more fully explained

in terms of their presence in Area 51.” However, the new openness only goes so far. There is nothing in the declassified files to shed any light on the existence of little green men from outer space, US government attempts to control the weather or any of the other, rumoured activities at the desert site.

FIESTA TIME!!!!

Churro

Ingredients:

90g sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 125 grams plain flour 125 grams self-raising flour 1 pinch of sea salt 450ml boiling water 2 tablespoons olive oil

Method: I always use the deep fryer for this making sure that you have nice clean oil inside. Set it to 175°c. If you don’t have a deep fryer you can use a pan with hot oil but you will have to ensure you don’t get the oil too hot. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. Sift the flours with a good pinch of salt into a metal or heatproof bowl and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, mix the olive oil and

450ml boiling water together, and pour into the well, beating it well with a fork to get rid of any lumps. The dough should be slightly soft and sticky to touch. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Add the dough to a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle and squeeze out Churro directly into the fryer, cutting them with a pair of scissors into the length you want. Be careful not to cook more than three at any one time, or they will all stick together. Fry for about 3 to 4 minutes until crispy and golden. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. You can experiment with different shapes…. One of my favourites has to be mini bite sized pieces. They take a little less time to cook and if you don’t have a piping bag- simply use teaspoons to drop the batter into the fryer.

There are just a couple of weeks to go until my local village has its annual fiesta. For those of you that haven’t been to one – it is simply a must.

There’s always a great atmosphere, fiesta chiringuitos serving cheap beer and local wine; food stalls, toy stalls and great fantastic entertainment you won’t experience anywhere else. The highlight for me is, has to be the chance to get my hands on some lovely hot “Churro” – with a dipping pot of chocolate sauce. “Churro” or sometimes known as “Tejeringos” (in Andalucía) are basically a fried doughnut; they are generally prisms in shape, and may be straight, curled, bite sized balls or spirally twisted. Best of all they are extremely easy to make and wonderfully delicious!

The Simple Chocolate Sauce: Ingredients:

200 grams dark chocolate (roughly chopped) 50 grams milk chocolate (roughly chopped) 2 tablespoons golden syrup 300 ml double cream

Method:

Put all the chocolate in a heavy bottomed saucepan with the golden syrup and cream and heat over a very low heat, stirring continuously, to melt the chocolate, being careful not to let it burn. Alternatively, heat with short bursts in the microwave, stirring between each burst. Simples!

and tf21 Land rover’s first alvis te21 (1963 - 1967) electric defender

THE first Land Rover Electric defender has started work at the Eden Project in Cornwall, the defender was unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show and now in Cornwall it will proves its capabilities in a real world trial. The innovative 4x4 is a rolling laboratory to develop new ideas, and investigate electrification in a real-world environment in fact a fleet of six vehicles will be placed with organisations where their performance can be assessed.

The Electric Defender has all the qualities and performance which have become associated with the Land Rover brand during the past sixty-five years. It has full all-terrain capability, perma-

IN an attempt to re-establish itself after WW2, Alvis launched the new TA21 in 1950 – powered by an all-new six-cylinder three-litre engine, the new Alvis very quickly became regarded as one of the UK’s finest prestige cars, quickly establishing a reputation for quality engineering allied to beautiful coachbuilt bodies. Fast forward another five years, and the loss of coachbuilders Mulliner and Tickford left Alvis with the task of finding alternative body engineering facilities.

nent 4WD and a top speed of 70mph. The job of the Defender at the Eden Project is to tow the four-carriage twelve tonne road train carrying up to sixty passengers on a 6% incline to and from the iconic hexagonal-panelled domes. The vehicle has been designed to perform its duties throughout each day before being recharged over night for the approximate cost of only £ 2.00. Jeremy Greenwood, Principal Engineer on the Electric Defender project, said the

car was ideal for the sensitive ecology of the Eden Project. In addition, the repetitive nature of the work will provide excellent data for future electric vehicles. “The car has been modified so it now includes a second battery,” Jeremy explained. “That will allow it to work a full day at the Eden Project, but also improves weight distribution and stability. In addition, we’ve linked the land-train’s air brakes to the foot pedal of the Land Rover, enhancing safety.”

f1 mercedes Benz ‘most expensive Car to Be Sold’ THE classic Formula 1 Mercedes Benz that was driven by five time F1 champion Juan Manuel Fangio has become the most expensive car to be sold at public auction selling for an extraordinary £19.6 million.

It was sold by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, West Sussex and the £19.6 million price tag includes the buyer’s premium. The previous world record for the most expensive car sold at public auction was a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa which went for more than £10 million in California in 2011. The car was successful on many occasions and Fangio drove the 2.5 litre car to victories in the 1954 German and Swiss Grand

Alvis turned to the Swiss coachbuilder, Graber, which produced a sleek and purposeful design that was licensed to Willowbrook of Loughborough in a bid to overcome the logistical problems of dealing with the Swiss coachbuilders. However, there were quality issues to contend with, which led to work being transferred to Park Ward of London – and the end result was the TD21. In 1963, the new-generation TE21 finally appeared – and because it was such an extensive – nay, radical – revamp of the previous generation model, the new name was more than justified. The basic look might have been familiar, but with the stacked headlamps and nicely sculpted rear wings,

and a useful improvement in power, the TE21 maintained Alvis’ position near the top of the food chain. Available as a saloon or drophead coupe, with manual or automatic gearboxes, there was plenty of scope to please the widest customer base. Three years later, the TE became the TF21 – although this time, the update amounted to little more than in increase in power and a few other detail changes. Without doubt, the Alvis TE/TF21 range was a prime slice of British heritage, and ended up dying before its time thanks to being purchased by Rover before being engulfed in the Leyland morass.

It was built specifically to win a world title and it effectively won two inside eighteen months with a final scorecard showing twelve starts and nine wins.

The car is extremely rare; only fourteen Mercedes Benz W196R machines ever existed. Ten still exist three are in museums and six inside Mercedes-Benz that leaves this recently auctioned Silver Arrow W196R chassis 006/54 which is now the only post-war Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow in private hands.

Breaking out with relative ease, they embark on a treacherous quest to clear their names while being hunted across the globe by Charissa Sosa (Jessica Biel), a high-ranking military officer and one of Face’s many former lovers. Meanwhile, mysterious CIA operative Lynch (Patrick Wilson) offers tips that help point the federal fugitives in the right direction, which seems to lead straight to former military contractor Pike (Brian Bloom), who may have been responsible for setting them up in the first place. Just when it seems that the A-Team has all the evidence needed to prove their innocence, however, they discover that their latest mission is just getting started.

Doctor Who At The Proms Editor Recommends BBC 1 - 16:00 - 17:15 When tickets for the Proms season went on sale back in May, the doctor Who Prom sold out in a matter of minutes. If you weren’t lucky enough to secure a ticket, or if you simply want to relive the experience, here’s your chance to enjoy some of the highlights from the show. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic and much-loved BBC series, this Bank Holiday television special features Murray Gold’s popular music for the show, accompanied by specially edited visual sequences from the Doctor’s most recent adventures. Hosted by the Doctor’s friends, Madame Vastra

and Strax, the concert also includes a look back at ‘classic’ Doctor Who series and the music created by the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Featuring special guest appearances by Matt Smith (making one of his final public outings as The Doctor before leaving the title role later in the year); Jenna-Louise Coleman (who plays Clara, Doctor’s current companion); Peter Davison (the 5th Doctor) and Carole Ann Ford (the Doctor’s first companion and granddaughter Susan Foreman). Performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the London Philharmonic Choir, with soloists Elin Manahan Thomas, Allan Clayton and Kerry Ingram.

24 Hours in A and E Channel 4 - 21:00 - 22:00 The series concludes with an episode focusing on men of all ages facing illness and their fears. Seventy-nine-year-old Arthur has been brought to Resus after complaining of stomach pains. The medics are trying to work out which of his underlying conditions could be to blame: he’s on kidney dialysis, and has an existing ulcer and an enlarged aorta (the major artery in the heart). But Arthur’s not one for complaining; he’s known tough times. As a boy, Arthur was evacuated from London during the Blitz, but was brought back by his mother. ‘She said “If we’re going to die, we may as well die in our own home”’, he says. Arthur’s daughter

Debbie talks proudly about her father’s positive attitude to life. Meanwhile, 20-year-old Tom, who works as a wine merchant, is rushed into A&E after collapsing with acute chest pain and difficulty breathing. Tom’s normally fit and well, and has no history of a heart condition or respiratory problems. Doctors are uncertain of the underlying cause of his pain. Tom’s dad Bob was understandably seriously worried to get the call from A&E. And retired soldier Rockey has come to King’s with his wife Cordelia after experiencing blurred vision. Rockey, who was born in Guyana, is worried it could be a detached retina, which could lead to blindness.

Tenerife Weekly - 23rd August 2013 - 29th August 2013

AROUNd one million tickets for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games went on sale this week. Glasgow is preparing to welcome 4,500 athletes from 71 nations and territories of the Commonwealth who will take part in the 11 day event in summer 2014.

The Glasgow-born ambassador for the Games Michael Jamieson officially started the process by diving into the refurbished pool at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre. Jamieson, who won an Olympic silver medal for the 200m breaststroke in London last year, trained at Tollcross when he was a young boy and will return to compete for Commonwealth gold for Team Scotland next summer. Young swimmers from Glasgow School of Sport joined the Olympian as he launched the start of ticket sales, with two-thirds of them costing less than £25. The swimmer anticipates Glasgow 2014 will be a highlight of his career and has encouraged people to get a seat and watch it live: ‘The difference between watching a big multisport event on television or actually being there and experiencing it is second to none,’ said the swimmer. ‘These are elite athletes in every one of the 17 sports competing against their rivals so no matter which sport you get tickets for you will be enthralled, excited and entertained. There is nothing to beat live sport.’ Lord Smith of Kelvin, Glasgow 2014 Chairman, said: ‘Glasgow 2014 in every sense is a Games for eve-

glasgow prepares for Commonwealth games ryone and a fantastic opportunity to experience world-class sport up close in one of the world’s great sporting cities. We look forward to welcoming elite athletes from across the Commonwealth and the best welcome we can give them are stadia packed with supporters cheering them on. Now is your chance to be part of this friendly force of fans for what I hope will be a great moment for sport, for Glasgow and Scotland.’ Tickets are available for four weeks, until Monday, September 16. The price of adult tickets start at £15 and two-thirds of them are less than £25. For the first time at a Commonwealth Games half-price concessions will be available for under 16’s. A new Commonwealth Games section has been launched on VisitScotland.com, providing information about the city, the event and travel elsewhere in Scotland and last month a £2.5 million campaign was announced to target millions of potential visitors from across the Commonwealth. At least 70 per cent of tickets will be made available to the public via the ticketing system. Applications for tickets can be made

dAVId Cameron has said he would “warmly welcome” a recommendation for Mo Farah to be knighted. The 30-year-old athlete achieved a historic double-double in Moscow last week adding two world titles to the twin Olympic triumphs from last summer.

The feat, completed by racing to 5,000m glory at the Luzhniki Stadium, sealed his status as perhaps the best British athlete in history. Last summer he also took both the 5,000 and 10,000m crowns at London 2012. The Prime Minister said:

“The Olympic and world double-double is one of the great sporting achievements. If the honours committee were to recommend Mo for a knighthood, I would warmly welcome it.” The Somalia-born, Britishraised long-distance runner has been one of the stars of a remarkable period for sport in the UK. Speaking after his victory on Friday he said: “What a year I’ve had. It has been, you know, hard work but I enjoyed this year. It is great being able to achieve what I have achieved. I can’t quite believe it at all. It is something I never dreamt of. I am honoured to be able to achieve what I have.” Farah was awarded a CBE at the end of last year.

PARALyMPIAN Chris Hallam MBE, a pioneer of disabled sport, has died. The athlete won medals for swimming and wheelchair racing in the 1988, 1992 and 1996 Paralympian Games. Mr Hallam, who was in his late 40s, had retired from competitive sport in 1996, he had been ill for some time, and died last Friday, disability Sport Wales announced.

Mr Hallam, who lived in Pontypool, Torfaen, won the London Marathon in 1985 and again in 1987, setting course records. 1986 he completed a 400-mile wheelchair ride around Wales to raise money for a centre for the disabled at Cardiff Metropolitan University, he also won medals in Paralympics in Seoul, Barcelona and Atlanta. The wheelchair racer, paralysed below the chest in a motorcycling accident, was already a good swimmer and within a few years he won the 50m breaststroke at the World Disabled Games. .Jim Munkley, Disability Sport Wales board member and fellow British team member with Mr Hallam at the Seoul, Barcelona and Atlanta Games, said: “Chris will be remembered as a true legend of Paralympic and Welsh sport. Not only was he was true competitor in every sense of the word, but he was also a great character to be around and to have known. Disability sport in Wales owes much to Chris and I have no doubt that we would not be where we are today without the huge contribution that he made to the development of our sport.” John Harris, a lifelong friend and fellow athlete, added: “Quite simply, Chris

Premier Footballer Capriati In Blackmail Plot In Court An un-named, married Premier League football player has been the target of an alleged blackmail plot. The international player is said to have been contacted by a man demanding £10,000 a month ago.

It is understood the footballer’s representatives called in police after refusing to comply with the alleged blackmailer’s demands. Officers investigating the allegations have arrested a suspect at his workplace. The man was led out of his office by detectives to be taken away for questioning. According to the report police have seized a mobile phone and are going back through text messages dating back over several years. The suspect - thought to be a telesales assistant, was later released on bail. The footballer involved, a married father, cannot be named for legal reasons. Details of the alleged plot came shortly after news of another Premiership player, who sent a fan X-rated text messages, was forced to confess to

This week marks the 15th edition of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles and the Scots will be hoping for another home winner, with Paul Lawrie and Marc Warren (2007) the only Scots to have triumphed so far.

Warren will be looking to contend once again after recording his best finish in a Major Championship two weeks ago, a share of 12th place in the US PGA Championship. Scott Jamieson and Stephen Gallacher, winners already on The 2013 Race to Dubai in South Africa and Dubai, are also part of the home team, Gallacher finished tied sixth last year along with compatriot Richie Ramsay.. Preparations for The Ryder Cup will be in full swing this time next year, The Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles will not feature on The 2014 European Tour International Schedule, returning to The Race to Dubai for 2015. For some of Europe’s Ryder Cup hopefuls, this week is an ideal opportunity to capture the prestigious title, and test themselves over the Jack Nicklaus-designed Centenary course, the location for next year’s matches. One player is Francesco Molinari, who alongside Lawrie was part of José María Olazábal’s victorious European Team at Medinah. The Italian has a good record at Gleneagles, he finished in the top ten four times in seven appearances, including tied sixth last year and third in 2010, when his brother Edoar-

his wife after mystery lover demanded £100,000. After months of lewd messages the unidentified sportsman asked the fan to meet for a one-night-stand, she then asked for a six-figure sum to stay quiet.

The star, who plays for a well-known British club, is believed to have offered the woman £20,000, then £60,000, and finally £100,000 to delete their explicit conversations, before eventually telling his wife.

The 37-year-old three-time Grand Slam champion is accused of hitting Ivan Brannan as he was working out at a gym on Valentine’s Day this year. Authorities also allege Capriati had stalked Mr Brannan for several months. The former star did not attend the hearing to set the trial date, but her lawyers described the accusations as false. Capriati had previously posted on Twitter to defend her behaviour: “I pushed a man that was verbally assaulting me away from me. This man has been tormenting and abusing me for so long. The truth will prevail,” she wrote. Capriati, a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, began her professional career at age 13. She won a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and later won the French and Australian opens. This is not her first brush with the law; she was arrested for shoplifting and marijuana possession in the 1990s.

Panesar Leaves Sussex In Disgrace England cricketer Monty Panesar has confirmed he will leave Sussex County Cricket Club after an internal investigation into claims he urinated on club doormen. Panesar was fined by police for being drunk and disorderly after an incident at a Brighton nightclub.

do won the title before earning an Captain’s pick to join Francesco in The Ryder Cup Team at The Celtic Manor Resort. Molinari was a top ten finisher in his last appearance on Scottish soil in The Open Championship in July. Denmark’s Thomas Björn, twice a runner up in 2013, returns to the course where he took command in a five-man play-off to win the title in 2011, one of three victories he recorded that year.

The 31-year-old was given a fixed penalty notice after being seen urinating in public near the Shooshh Club in King’s Road Arches. The Sun newspaper reported that he urinated from the promenade above the venue on to doormen standing below, after being thrown out of the club. He will leave Sussex at the end of the season after being released from his contract. A statement on the club’s website read: “I have endured

a challenging time this year off the field and my frustrations have sometimes got the better of me professionally. I apologise for letting the club, my colleagues and my fans down.” He said he hoped to put his “personal and professional problems” behind him: “I am determined to do whatever it takes to gain selection for England this winter,” he added. “I want to become the best I can be.” He said he was still confident that he could fulfil his ambition to become the best spin bowler in the world. This is the latest incident to have involved an England player this summer. In June, opening batsman Joe Root was punched by Australian counterpart David Warner in the Walkabout bar in Birmingham. Warner was suspended and missed the first two Tests as a result.

WHAT chance have you got when the referee can’t tell a players bottom from his elbow. deep into injury time at Alcorcon a sedate 0-0 would have done fine for Cd Tenerife but Chechu failed to clear danger and Bruno flopped down to block it at the post with his rear to the ball. It was clumsy, it was unorthodox, but it was never a hand ball to everyone except the ref, Juli slipped the penalty into the bottom corner of the net and the points went to the home side.

A goal hadn’t looked likely in this opening game of the Segunda Divi-

sion, Tenerife defended well with Moyano immaculate at right back and Bruno and new boy Carlos Ruiz forming a solid central pairing. The only early threats came after 10 minutes and Sergio Aragoneses mopped up with a punch clear and a dash out to boot the loose ball away. The Tenerife midfield was tight and compact if not creative, Ayoze was the lone striker, his pace always threatened to unlock the home

Show Jumping Back in the Saddle at Buzanada WHETHER you remember the BBC Sportsnight days of Harvey Smith and that wall or are an Olympic convert to show jumping, Buzanada is offering a top national championship event this weekend for free.

Today (Friday 23rd) tomorrow and Sunday the evening will grow a little cooler as the jumps get gradually higher starting at 4 pm with 75 cms, 90 cms, 1 metre and 1.10 metres. Then from 9.30 pm it’s upward with 1.20 and 1.30 metres. These times and categories will be repeated over the three nights until the winners emerge from the pack.

defence but he needed a partner to play off and is still a little lightweight when challenged. Just after the break Cristo body charged Sanz out wide and the home player fell awkwardly smacking his head on an advertising hoarding. A ten minute stoppage allowed an ambulance on the pitch, the fallen player was taken to hospital overnight as a precaution but just had a few cuts to go with a stonking headache. Cristo was one of the first visitors to his bedside. With play resumed Chechu went close turning his marker in the box forcing the goalie into a low save.

Raul Llorente got a yellow card for pulling back Sales as the bookings started to flow, Verdes picked up a home caution for clattering Ayoze and Alberto just off the bench got his yellow for an elbow on Prendes face when both jumped for a high ball. The game was going nowhere but flared into life during 11 minutes of added ambulance time. Llorente was a prize mug with another bear hug on Sales earning him a sending off, that encouraged the home team and they came at Tenerife. Before we knew it there was indecision in the Tenerife penalty

area and the ref handed out his gift. Afonso nearly doubled the agony, his shot cannoned off the underside of the bar and away. Not a pleasing way to start the season but Hercules at home on Sunday at 6 pm will see Spain under 19 left back Salva Ruiz make his debut and the team gets a second chance to make a first impression on the season. The draw for the Copa del Rey (Spanish FA Cup) has done Tenerife no favours with an awkward away tie in the Basque region against fellow Segunda side Eibar on Wednesday 11th September.

Powering Lycra Speedsters Up For 2013 Wheel Into The South World WateR

Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome are just two international cycling stars that have sharpened their skills on the testing roads of Tenerife. The big names might not be over for the Vuelta Ciclista de Tenerife but 90 riders from over a dozen teams will be probing all corners of the island between 30th August and 3rd September as they clock up 360 kms in five stages.

The annual event is based in La Laguna but they will be heading out daily in pursuit of the leaders jersey. The first day starts from Avenida de Trinidad (the tram terminus) and runs down to Guamasa, that’s followed by La Laguna to Santiago del Teide on day

Ski Racing At Puerto Colon

two, this is one of the hardest sections with major climbs and drops. By day three the muscles are throbbing as they cover Los Silos to El Sauzal, and 2nd September brings the pack down into Los Cristianos via Candelaria, San Isidro, San Miguel, and Valle San Lor-

enzo before turning into the tourist zone from the Guaza roundabout. Finally a last big effort is needed with the final stretch split into two stages, La Punta to La Laguna, and a big circuit of La Laguna’s historic centre to milk the well deserved applause.

CB Canarias Closing In On Revamped Squad

The ACB basketball season may not tip off until 13 October but CB Canarias have almost finished the fine tuning of last years 11th placed squad. Another key move has seen captain Jaime Heras sign up for an 11th season with the La Laguna club.

Pretty much everyone the club wanted back has agreed terms, Greek player Fitio Propoulous put pen to paper last week and now they have just one big new fish left to land. Argentinian pivot Juan “Juampi” Gutierrez is expected to pull on the yellow vest and add his experience. Born in Buenos Aires the 29 year old spent six seasons with Granada before returning to home town club Obras Sanitarias two years ago, he also picked up a bronce medal as part of the Argentina team at Pekin for the 2008 Olympics.

Team GB Power, speed, and spectacle will make Puerto Colon the place to be for action sports fans from 5th to 15th September.

The 2013 World Waterski Racing Championships are fast approaching and Costa Adeje has already begun welcoming some of the 350 competitors and 50 boats from as far away as Australia, Venezuela, Austria, France, Spain, and Great Britain. There will be four days of races that count towards the final positions; they are on the 7th, 9th, and 11th, with the big finals on 14th September. Boats will carry one

skier, one driver, and one observer, all hitting speeds of up to 110 mph powered by 1,300 hp engines. Former World champions Todd Haig from America, and Wayne Mawer from Australia will be skimming the waves and Jose Miguel Gonzalez from Tenerife will get plenty of local support. The crews and their boats are gearing up with some very eye catching designs; it’s going to be a visual feast at all levels. Puerto Colon will be buzzing with back up crew, world media and sports fans as the men, women, and machines compete for attention at the bustling marina and La Pinta beach next door.

New Stage And New Battles For CD Marino

The waiting is over as CD Marino travel the short distance to Las Zocas on Saturday at 6pm to begin their season in the Tercera Division.

It’s a time to get back to grass roots for the club, last weekend in the San Casiano Tournament at El Fraile they beat Aguilas on penalties but lost the final to Ibarra 2-0. The pleasing aspect was the inclusion of seven home produced juniors in a young line up. Development is the way forward with experienced players like goalie Alberto and striker Balduino helping to nurture the raw talent.

rsene Wenger has promised new arrivals for the Emirates after Arsenal all-but guaranteed their place in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

Wenger will now turn his attention to the transfer market after watching his side win a 3-0 first-leg win over Fenerbahce in Turkey on Wednesday night. The Gunners boss, who missed out signing Gonzalo Higuain earlier this summer, feels the transfer market will now kick-start, but ruled out making an improved bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Wenger stressed he was looking to strengthen, especially in midfield, with Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby both also sidelined. Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye and Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema are reported targets for the Gunners. “We tried to bring one in, but we are working on that. You have to understand there is still a long way to go,” added Wenger. “The transfer market starts for me now and a lot of activity will happen between now and September 2. From August 21 until September 2 you have 12 days, so a lot will happen. It starts now. It is like a poker game. People hold their cards as long as possible and see what is happening out there. In the end, they go for decisions.”
