Solutions to this week’s puzzles


First of all, I would like to send congratulations to Marc Craig on his nomination for Best Male Singer in the Tenerife Entertainment Awards. As resident singer at Vivo, we are all lucky enough to hear his fantastic voice throughout the week. This is his seventh nomination, he won last year, so good luck Marc, and all of the other nominees from everyone at Vivo Decades and Tenerife Weekly! A very small weather alert: Reports

Tenerife Weekly - 13th September 2013 - 19th September 2013 have been circulating about Hurricane Humberto and how it is coming here to Tenerife. DON’T PANIC. Apparently, the expected winds will only affect us by way of rough seas and some wind, not hurricane force, so with the British mentality going into overdrive when it comes to the weather, I would suggest that possibly a boat trip might be avoided, other than that – carry on as normal! We all, without exception, complain about the banking system we have here in Tenerife, everything takes so long. But at least we have

he Insular Executive Committee of coalition Canaria unanimously endorsed the takeover of the Presidency of the Council of Tenerife, which will take place next Monday, September 16th. The members of the Executive also showed their support “without any loopholes” to Carlos Alonso who, starting next week, will be the new President of the Corporación insular Tenerife.


a banking system. Spare a thought for the residents of La Graciosa, they have lost the only bank on the Island. Now to carry out any bank transaction at all involves travelling to Lanzarote, an 1½ hour boat trip, and then a further drive to the nearest bank. Then of course, they will have to contend with the same queuing system, before making the trek all the way back home. Kind of puts our complaints about banks into perspective doesn’t it? See you all next week.

competition Last week’s The Car People Competition was an easy one, the correct answer to the question; What make and model were the cars used in the 1969 version of the film “The Italian Job”? The answer is Mini Cooper. Congratulations go to Frank Williams who was the lucky winner. We look forward to seeing him with his family at the Sunday Carvery at Vivo, where they will also be treated to a round of mini

Hurricane Humberto = Windy Canary Islands

The Insular Executive Committee of coalition Canaria met last Monday to experience first-hand the time limits and the reasons for the departure of Ricardo Melchior as insular President who explained that he understands that, after three terms leading the insular Cor-

poration “ it is time to step aside and allow a change that I had already announced during the last election campaign that I would not stand”. Melchior thanked the coalition Canaria for the support he had received over the years and emphasized the training and management ca-


There are already four men who have been missing in Tenerife for some time, and now another family is searching for a loved one.

He is 39-year-old José Brito Reyes who disappeared on 6 August from his home in the Santa Cruz area of Ofra around 10 in the morning and hasn’t been seen since. He had a bag and his documentation with him, and his family think it’s possible he’s on another island, but they have had no contact since he left home and are desperate for news of him.

pacity of Carlos Alonso who he described as “the best possible candidate to the Presidency”. For his part, Carlos Alonso, asked the Insular executive to support his appointment which was met with unanimous applause showing the support of the party and, as explained by the Island Secretary, Fernando Clavijo: “This Party supports a seamless switch to the new President,” at the same time praised and highlighted the management carried out by Ricardo Melchior for his “courage and generosity” in its bid for renewal. Carlos Alonso explained that the objectives for the stage which will lead in the insular Council will focus on a priority based on people. “Including the need to create the best conditions to generate employment in the island and lead to a new era of prosperity.” Amongst the priorities of the future President is the improvement of connectivity, opening up to Africa as a continent of opportunities and training of our people as a vital resource to be more competitive.

Canaries to feel indirect effects of edge of hurricane over next few days. A range of meteorologists, from Aemet to the National Hurricane Center, are forecasting a bit of a rough weekend for the Canaries as we feel the indirect effects of hurricane Humberto, the first hurricane of the 2013 season. Humberto has been forming as a tropical storm over the past five or so days off the coast of Senegal, and achieved

hurricane 1 strength yesterday. Currently it is just north of Cape Verde and veering west to start its journey over the Atlantic, but we could feel some of its winds, and have some of its rough seas, over today and this weekend. It might also get a little more tropical over these next few days, with warmer humid weather and some rain, the effects of being at the very edge of the hurricane as it passes. Meteorologists are adamant that we will not be directly affected by Humberto at all.

NEwS ON food Campaign THE ROCK T

The Guardia Civil have detained two youngsters after a prank call from a telephone box in Vallehermoso threatening to “set fire to the mountain in La Gomera” When the 14-year-olds were interviewed with their parents, they confessed to making the call, but said it was “just a joke” and “they had no intention of actually starting a fire”. They both face public disorder charges if the Public prosecutor responsible for minors decides to take the matter further. a 33-year-old senegalese was arrested on Saturday after attacking a Los Cristianos policía local officer who stopped him as he was selling sunglasses. The police say that their attention to street vendors has been greatly increased over the last few weeks, the result not only of the long overdue fulfilment of political promises in Arona, but also after pressure from businesses in the area who claim a loss of 30% trade to such illegal trading. Víctor Sánchez, president of the Asociación de Empresarios de Playa de Las Américas y Costa Adeje (Aepaca), said that the street sellers usually flee towards Las Américas from the Adeje coastline because of the firmer stance taken in that municipality. Sr Sánchez said that businesses complain too that the street vendors even enter shops to try to tempt customers away from legitimate businesses. Police say that they will continue to clamp down on the activity, and this attack surely won’t soften their attitudes. An express trial resulted in a sentence of eight months in prison for the street vendor who attacked a policeman in Los Cristianos last weekend. He will also have to pay compensation of 400 Euros for the assault and death threats made to the officer.

The eight airports in the Canary Islands registered an increase of 6% during the month of August 2013 with 2,867,231 passengers, of which 2,842,874 used commercial flights. The airports which recorded a higher passenger growth were La Gomera, with an increase of 40.1% (2,961 passengers), Lanzarote, with 4.7% (538,484 passengers), Tenerife South, with 3.11% (708,404 passengers) and Fuerteventura, with 0.4% (426,549 passengers). The largest percentage increase was in international passenger numbers with Tenerife Norte receiving 3,690 passengers (+8%), and Tenerife South, with 624,392 passengers (+6.9%). norwegian has continued to grow its presence at its London Gatwick (LGW) airport, with the addition of services to Tenerife Sur (TFS) , becoming destination number 24 since it began its new hub there earlier this year. The four times weekly 737-800 operation to the Canary Islands hot-spot was started on 5 September, with the link to the Island inaugurated the following day, at the same weekly frequency. Competition will be intense on the Tenerife Sur route, with a total of 29 weekly flights already being flown by five airlines — namely British Airways (five per week), easyJet (eight), Monarch Airlines (seven), Thomas Cook Airlines (three) and Thomson Airways (six). The battle for market share to the Italian capital will be even fiercer, with incumbents British Airways (14) and easyJet (26) offering multiple daily services by comparison to the pan-Scandinavian LCC.

hE aim of the first joint project of FEsBaL and antena 3 Group is raising money to transform fresh food surpluses and non perishable foods destined for the needy through the Food Bank network forming the spanish Federation of Food Banks.

The campaign involves sending a phone message SMS to 28020 with the word ALIMENTO (meaning FOOD), at a cost to the sender of 1.20 Euros. The proceeds will go entirely to fund the costs of processing fruit and other fresh perishable packaged products such as preserves, juices, jams etc. which will then be distributed to the needy through the network of food banks that make up the Spanish Federation of Food Banks. The campaign began last October 25th has the famous characters prescribers

to Susanna Griso TV presenters, host of the ANTENA3 “ESPEJO PÚBLICO” and the driver SALVADOS program that airs on LaSexta. The pieces are issued inviting participation in both chains and Neox, Nova, Nitro and EXPLORE and wedges on the campaign emit radio networks ONDA CERO and EUROPA FM. com has enabled campaign information, and also offers tips and additional content to acquire habits responsibly when making purchases and consumer food tips and minimizing waste. Spain wastes

nine million tons of food a year and are the homes where more food is wasted (by 42% of what you buy). It works well in solving a problem relating to the environment as the process of removing food waste produces severe pollution consisting of methane emissions in the atmosphere which is an important factor in the greenhouse effect. The ANTENA 3 Group, which has designed and promoted this campaign, together with the needy through FESBAL, the campaign is having a remarkable success.


By Marc Craig ast week’s seismic activity on Sunday an ocean floor tremor occurred along the Tenerife/Gran Canaria faultline measuring between 2.5 and 3.4 on the Richter scale, is not at all unusual for a volcanic archipelago, they happen all the timebut it did get me thinking about the fact that we live under the looming majesty of a volcano. I decided to try and learn some more about the volcanic history of this beautiful island.

Tenerife Weekly - 13th September 2013 - 19th September 2013


Volcanic Induction

Peak District! Most of us know about Mount Teide or El Pico Del Teide, the big impressive peak that dominates Tenerife, quite a few will have heard of Pico Viejo or Old Peak-an inaccurate name it’s younger than Teide, but did you know there are 411 volcanoes in Tenerife? The biggest obviously is Teide, they are all classified as inactive, but Teide is also classified as dormant and studies have indicated that future eruptions are likely; its structure is comparable to the famous erupting volcanoes, Vesuvius and Etna. Other volcanoes in Tenerife worth noting as they have all erupted in the past are, El Chinyero, Boca Cangrejo, Las Montañas Negras and Siete Fuentes to name a few. The whole of the island is composed of “a complex overlapping Miocene to Quaternary stratovolcanoes”.

The Cordillera Dorsal Volcanic massif in the North-East is joined to the Las Cañadas volcano to the South West, where the oldest volcanoes can be found. Together these form the 10 by 17km Las Cañadas caldera, (a caldera is a cauldron-like crater formed by land collapse following a volcanic eruption), which is dominated by Mount Teide which is 3,718m high and Spain’s highest point and the 3rd largest volcano in the is also listed as one of the 16 “Decades Volcanoes”, (named because of the UN sponsored, International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction) by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI) as “being worthy of particular study in light of their history of large, de-

structive eruptions and proximity to populated areas”. The Caldera’s creation is considered to have been either a massive landslide - a occurrence which earlier created the huge valleys of La Orotava and Guimar Valleys, or a huge explosive eruption around 150,000 years ago. The island itself is thought to be only 2-3 million years old and like all the Canary islands it was formed by the accretion (definition: an increase by natural growth or external addition) of 3 shield volcanoes, named for their resemblance to a fighting shield, they are large and fairly flat and consist almost completely of liquid, flowing lava which, as they erupt, create layer upon layer, steadily growing until they breach the ocean’s surface to form a volcanic island. When the first Guanches arrived they saw Teide as a sacred peak much like the Greeks with Olympus (Teide was used to depict Olympus in the recent Clash of the Titans remake). They believed that Guayota, their Devil, had imprisoned their sun god Magec , inside the volcano causing the world to plunge into darkness. The Guanches prayed to their supreme god Achamán for help, who battled Guayota freeing Magec and locking the devil inside

the mountain. They believed when the volcano erupted, it was Guayota trying to escape his fiery prison!

Notable eruptions Teide and all the other volcanoes have been dormant since the last eruption in 1909 which occurred at the El Chinyero vent, one of the most famous eruptions was the huge one that almost destroyed the town of Garachico in 1706. Back then Garachico was a rich and prosperous town, the main seaport on the island, vital to export of wine, and other produce but the eruption, which went on for weeks, creating a lava flow which crept down the surrounding hills engulfing the harbour and burying it forever beneath the molten rock, ended its reign as the primary seaport on the island-which effectively created the opportunity for Puerto de la Cruz to fill the void, thus becoming the islands capital. In 1492 as Christopher Columbus sailed past the island on his way to reaching the New World he reported “a great fire in the Orotava valley” which possibly was the result of an eruption from the Boca Cangrejo vent around that time. I also recall a story told to me

some years ago I can’t remember who told me, about a village that was decimated by an eruption which sent rivers of lava pouring into their homes. The story goes that the surviving villagers fled to the church and prayed for salvation. Their prayers were answered when the lava reached the church doors it split into two directions leaving the church and its occupants untouched! This is quite a common tale when it comes to volcanic eruptions around the world and I found many similar tales, however I couldn’t find any mention of a Tenerife version of this kind of holy interference online-if anyone can shed any light I’d love to hear from you marc@ So, as for any future eruptions? At the moment the Cabildo stresses that we are perfectly safe, it’s dormant and shows no sign of activity and therefore no risk. If that should ever change, they also reassure us that “the island is equipped to deal with any volcanic risk situation (evacuation, volcanic surveillance and monitoring programme, etc.). So for now we can admire the majestic peak rising through the clouds, without fear, enjoy!!

28 Free Nexsport Batucadas Places for Adeje Youth Arona 2013 The Nexsport Sports Centre in El Galeón has presented, through the Adeje council, free places for the year to 28 Adeje youth.

According to the local sports councillor Andrés Pérez Ramos this kind of initiative shows Adeje’s high level of social responsibility, and on-going determination to benefit all those in the borough. The 28 who have been granted the free places are, he said, “delighted to have the chance to practise sport in such an excellent sporting centre”, adding that since its inception the Nexsport El Galeón centre has supported many of the council’s plans, and works often in conjunction with the council for the overall benefit of Adeje. Nexsport Club El Galeón’s Francisco Benitez said: “The Centro Deportivo El Galeón is very proud to be a part of this special offer, with 28 young Adejeros, selected by the council youth section, now able to practise sport

in our installation. We are a sports centre for all members of the family. Our intention is to continue working with the Adeje council and all the public and sporting institutions in the borough to encourage sporting practises in our society”. He said that the Canarias has the highest percentage of

overweight members of the population at national level so it was important to work to combat the problem and promote a social sporting message. “ Nexsport Club El Galeón is a multi-sporting complex of 12,700 m2 which promotes the integration of health, leisure and well-

being through sport for all the family. The centre offers a huge range of poolbased activities, Aquaerobic, Aquastep, swimming classes and competitions, Aquabike, etc as well as over 100 gymnasium activities including Pilates, Spinning, Fitness, Cross, Pádel, Tennis, Fitness, Zumba, and lots, lots more.

The Honour of the Wronged

Six groups from all over the island, took part in the parade organized by the Patronato de Turismo de Arona with the collaboration of the Board of Trustees of culture. Featuring two different start points, one at the Avenida Francisco Andrade Fumero , Las Vistas beach and the other in the Avenida Rafael Puig by the barranco de Troy, the groups certainly caught the eye of a large number of people as they made their way along their predetermined route. Arriving at the meeting point, the drummers ALMAGEC (Candelaria, LUSILEIROS (Los Silos), BLANQUISUR (Granadilla), RITMO DEL VIENTO (Icod de Los Vinos), TÓCALA TÚ SUR (Arona) and KNADUM (Arona) finished their display with an amazing display en masse that caught the attention of the crowd who witnessed the spectacular scene.

Guia De Isora: 5 Star All The Way

Those in charge in Guia de Isora are betting the area’s future on luxury hotels and five-star residential accommodation.

For those who don’t know Equipo Para is a cultural activity space managed by a group of people who aim to encourage and revive the cultural life of Tenerife. It is non-profit making and provides a space for the community to produce and develop their own cultural programmes. It provides a platform to all individuals and

groups who wish to display and communicate assignments, projects and ideas. I really wish I could speak Spanish because one of the items on their September programme is this FREE film that will be shown on 26th of September. What an interesting looking character this guy is. This is the story and testimony of an obsession, the passionate search for an old anarchist gunman, Felipe Emilio Sandoval, aka Doctor

Muñiz (1886-1939). Born in the slums of Madrid, earning his living as a bricklayer, his life is marked by his faith in a recurring dream: social revolution. This will first turn him into a famous robber and man of action and then, during the Spanish Civil War, into a ruthless murderer. With the material from archives and registers and a selection of old movies and photographs, the film session tries to reconstruct the course of his life and answer the question of who Felipe Sandoval really was.

There are already villas currently being constructed at the Abama Golf resort in Playa de San Juan , operated by the Ritz Carlton company, and the area also has the 5 star Palacio de Isora , part of the Meliá group , in Alcala , both benchmarks in exclusivity. This week, the local councillor for Tourism, Hector Gomez , reported that Costa San Juan sector of the Partial Plan for the area is in the final stage of approval, opening the way for more high end tourist accommodation. ”Once the final approval document is received the

building permit process will start” says Gomez. “The next project is tourist accommodation with a total area of 267,130 square meters where hotels will be located in amongst a number of green areas and first class sports facilities.

The partial plan aims to boost tourism and there is already interest from investors for future hotels located in Erques at the foot of the ravine that leads to Playa San Juan and in Cueva del Polvo, he concluded.

10 only Bank in La graciosa Closes its doors

Tenerife Weekly - 13th September 2013 - 19th September 2013

ThE 600 residents of the tiny Canary Island of La Graciosa, will have to take a boat from now on when they want to make a cash withdrawal. Cash-strapped Bankia will close 54 of its bank branches across the Canary Islands in october, but none of its clients will be as


greatly affected as the Gracioseros.

When La Graciosa branch closes its doors after 25 years on the 29-square-kilometre island, all banking operations will have to be carried out in neighbouring Lanzarote, a hour and half boat ride away. The trip will also include a short drive to the municipality of Haría as the port town of Orzola where the boats arrive doesn’t have a Bankia branch

either. La Graciosa, which receives approximately 25,000 visitors a year, has been fighting for greater autonomy over the past few months. Lobby group “Lagraciosala8islacanaria” collected thousands of signatures across the Canary Islands in May in the hope of convincing the Canary government to recognize La Graciosa as the eighth island in the archipelago. Recognition of La Graciosa’s island status would mean locals would no longer have to turn to Teguise Town Hall in Lanzarote whenever new rubbish containers were needed or there was an electricity or water cut. But the closure of the isle’s only bank is only likely to further kill off any hopes of self-sufficiency. Bankia had previously only opened their doors on the island twice a week and installed a cash machine which caused havoc when it was out of order for more than ten days. “They’re disrespecting our struggle and don’t realize what village life is like,” lobby spokesperson Miguel Páez told Spanish daily El Mundo. “With this move they’re stopping us from progressing.” Gracioseros are already planning a demonstration in front of the Bankia branch for the September 12th to force the bank to find a solution.

Expatriates Urged To Report Information About Tobacco Smugglers And Tax Dodgers

Call Follows Jailing Of British Fugitive Extradited From Spain

Expatriates with information or suspicions about tobacco smuggling and tax fraud are being asked to call a Customs Hotline with any information that could lead to arrests or seizures.

The call for help from the British community follows the jailing of convicted cigarette smuggler Malcolm McGowan, who has just been extradited from Spain and is now starting a four-year jail term. The freephone number to pass on information is 900 988 922. For people in the UK, it is 0800 595 000. People can also email There is no need to give personal details, and information that leads directly to an arrest could be considered for a small reward. McGowan, 61, originally from Edinburgh, was arrested at a swimming pool in Valencia on 10 August by the Guardia Civil. He fled the UK 12 years ago after being found guilty of smuggling 28.3 million cigarettes into the country. His crimes robbed the UK of around

Help us fight tobacco smuggling and tax fraud If you have any information Please contact • UK: 0800 59 5000 • Spain: 900 988 922 • • You may be eligible for a cash reward and you do not have to give your personal details.

£4 million in duty and he was sentenced in his absence in December 2001. McGowan was part of a wider conspiracy to smuggle around 56 million cigarettes into the UK between November 1999 and March 2000. Ten other men were involved

in the plot, which robbed the UK taxpayer of over £8.2 million. Adrian Farley, Assistant Director of Criminal Investigation for HM Revenue & Customs, said: “McGowan is finally facing UK justice after 12 years on the run. We are determined to pursue fugitives and en-

sure they face the consequences of their criminal activity. HMRC would like to thank the Spanish authorities and UK organisations that assisted with this operation.” The call to ring 900 988 922 comes as smugglers try to make huge profits from illegal imports of cigarettes, and the selling of low-quality, counterfeit cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol. Customs officers are also keen for information about other items

such as drugs, firearms, obscene material and endangered species. Tax frauds that HMRC want to hear about include betting and gaming, money laundering and the ‘carousel’ VAT scam in Europe. “Smugglers and fraudsters cheat the rest of us by not contributing the tax that pays for schools, hospitals and public services”, said an HMRC spokesman. “People in the British expatriate community can help us to find them.”

taxation overseas

By Sylvia From Crystal Clear Solutions

IF you earn income from UK investments,, while you are living abroad, the tax will be deducted at source. For bank and building society savings accounts you will not be liable for tax, but in order to qualify you will need to fill out a tax exemption form. Those living abroad need two wills - one for any assets in Britain and one covering their property and savings where they live.

Inland Revenue booklet IR20 is the starting point for tax advice. Order it on 08459 000 404 or download it from If you decide to sell your house in the UK before you move you won’t be liable to pay capital gains tax (CGT) on the proceeds because the sale of a private residence is exempt. If you keep your home in the UK after you have moved, any rental income will be liable for tax if it amounts to more than £4,250 in one tax year. Your letting agent or your tenants are responsible for making sure the tax is paid. Any investments made in your new home country are subject to that country’s tax rules. Expats may become exposed to taxes they have never encountered before. For example, the proceeds of maturing life insurance policies are taxed in the US and Canada, while several nations have an annual wealth tax. You must fill out a self-assessment

I know some of you are like “No way, how can I carry waste in my tummy all that time? That’s disgusting!” but it is a fact, most of us are full of s**t! We have an average of ten pounds of it clogging up our colon at any given time, it stinks, and it is full of nasty germs. Processed foods accompanied by red meat, pollution and other inhaled toxins have built up in our bodies and colons since birth. Many of us carry excess stool that never digest. This leads to parasites that make us sick and many nutrients are not properly absorbed because of this. It is the stool impact in our gut that makes our stomachs

tax form if you’re a self-employed person or higher rate taxpayer winding up business arrangements in the UK. The form must show all business details up to the date you stopped working and moved away. If possible you should try to keep your assets offshore. Each country has its own tax rules - so if you do have assets and income, you may be liable to tax in your chosen country of residence. It is therefore important to get tax advice before you go. You should also think about the rules surrounding the investment vehicles you choose to put your money in. While Individual Savings Accounts (Isas) and Personal Equity Plans (Peps) do not lose their tax-free status if you move overseas, income tax and CGT may be charged by your country of residence. You cannot continue paying into Isas if you are not resident in the UK. For more information about the Inland Revenue’s tax rules for ex-pats go to the Revenue website: International Series Leaflets. If you

are liable, fill out a self-assessment tax form you can download from the IR site. Tax Return. The Inland Revenue has a centre for non-residents, you can call 0845 070 0040 if you have any income tax queries. It also publishes a range of guides including IR138 Living or retiring abroad and IR20 Residents and non-residents. These can be ordered over the phone or downloaded at the IR website. You must also remember not to forget to tell the Inland Revenue when you go abroad. You will usually be asked to complete a P85 tax form, which allows the authorities to keep track of you. You need to complete a tax return for the portion of any tax year from 6 April to date of departure, which will stop the Revenue chasing for unpaid tax or outstanding information. Should you wish to submit a Tax Return in the UK we can help you with this, contact us today to make an appointment on +34 922 085 124. Crystal Clear Solutions…Making things Crystal Clear!

Clean 9 from forever Living

LasT week’s article by Judith from origins Wellness about detoxing has generated a huge amount of interest (places on the programme are filling up quickly) however it lead me to wondering about where does the food we eat go? Most of us “go” at least once a day, but did you know that we can carry waste for more than 3 months and sometimes even up 20 years?

protrude, causing us to look fat and have a weak immune system. Our colon acts as the waste eliminator for our body. Think of it as a pipe leading away from our toilet to our sewer. If the pipe is not functioning properly, our toilet does not work and we cannot get rid of accumulated waste. If our colon becomes clogged, our body has difficulty in getting rid of our waste and health problems begin. When your toilet backs up, you give it a good plunge. In the same manner when your colon backs up you need to give it a good plunge too! An unhealthy colon makes us tired and sluggish. We wake up and feel as if we

have not slept. We become irritable and grumpy and if we are overweight all attempts to lose weight fail. Some of the top health concerns associated with a clogged colon are: weaker immune system, abdominal pain, problems with digestion, colon cancer, constipation, a low fibre diet, inadequate fluid intake, a sedentary lifestyle and ignoring the urge “to go”. Time to plunge the system – detox with Clean 9 – feel cleaner, lose weight and look great! Forever Living will be represented by Beverley (Bamboo Hair Salon) at the John Lowe Charity Golf Day this Saturday (Tee 10).

The scheme which has been running since the middle of July and is based on Social Security contributions for the first month of the worker’s contract, offers grants to employers of between 255 to 615 Euros per worker. To qualify, prospective

employees must have been registered as job seeking with the Servicio Canario de Empleo for a minimum of 3 months. More information is available at https://sede.gobcan. es/sede/procedimientos_ servicios/tramites

Tenerife Drag Queen Miss Caelum Takes A Bite Of The Big Apple New York Friedman Benda gallery. For a full month, works have been exhibited by internationally renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Agathe Snow and David LaChapelle, all under the premise of nightlife and club culture as an inspiration to art.

The show, curated by Thorsten Albertz, co-director of this prestigious New York art gallery, used the words of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music” to title the exhibition which hosts paintings, photographs and sculptures by internationally renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, David LaChapelle, Agathe Snow and Wolfgang Tillmans. Albertez considered celebrity drag artist Miss Caelum “ideal” for the hosting role and was introduced as an “international club culture icon”. Caelum played host to some of New Yorks finest at the extremely successful opening event. Amongst the arty crowd, Caelum rubbed shoulders with members of New Yorks cultural A-listers, fashionistas, artists, bloggers and celebrities, also present

were top model Henelore Knuts and model and singer Gregory Nalbone. Miss Caelum’s grand hosting success was featured in the New York Times magazines coverage of the event and also named and quoted in possibly the world’s most famous and iconic magazine ever, Interview magazine, founded by legendary Andy Warhol in 1969, where Caelum was described as a “drag queen with a pink wig and a name which means Heaven in Latin.” Miss Caelum was also featured in photographic coverage of the event in CultureD, a reference to all New Yorks cultural elite. But far from being considered a one night sensation, Miss Caelum kept New Yorkers on their toes during her full week stay in the big apple by attending some of the city’s major parties as a guest of legendary club hostess and party promoter Susanne Bartsch, where Caelum partied alongside New York club royalty and international glitterati such as famous model Daniel Garofali. New York Times published photographer Austin Green bared witness to Miss Caelum’s whirlwind trip to New York, snapping onsite shots of all of Caelum’s public appearances and full on photoshoots at some of New Yorks most iconic landmarks, works that will soon be unveiled at

The Other 9/11 The Voice of Adeje

Why September 11th will never be forgotten on La Gomera Anyone who has read a newspaper, seen the TV or looked on the internet over the past few days will have seen hundreds of reminders from our American friends to remember the 12th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks. While I do feel extreme sympathy for those who lost loved ones, and Agando, the huge remnant core agree it should be remembered, I Roque of a long eroded volcano, near where the also wonder if anyone in the USA tragedy occurred knows or even cares about what happened on the same date in La tion in La Gomera’s mountains above the village of La Laja where a forest fire had broken Gomera. The families of those lost out. The spot is on an exposed ridge and the in this equally devastating event victims were trapped there when the wind also deserve to have their loved suddenly changed direction enclosing them in ones remembered especially by fire and intense heat. Among the victims were those of us who live in the Canary locals and some people from Tenerife, including a former mayor of Puerto de la Cruz. The Islands.

Roque Agando, the huge remnant core of a long eroded volcano, near where the tragedy occurred The whole world now remembers 9/11, but on La Gomera the date has an added very sad dimension since the year 1984. On that day 29 years ago twenty people died in a forest fire near Roque Agando, a landmark rock forma-

tragedy is one of the worst fire-related disasters in all of Spain ever and a sad-looking rusty steel monument near the spot lists all the 20 names of the victims. The area around Roque Agando which stands at the eastern end of the national park was ablaze again in last year’s devastating fires, but thankfully there were no casualties in 2012.

Adeje’s school of music, the EMMA, has confirmed that one of their students, Ainoha, will be in the final casting of Telecinco’s La Voz (The Voice) programme so will be performing live soon on the popular national programme.

Adeje’s mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, was delighted at the news and said: “We are very proud indeed at this example of Adeje’s young talent which is being recognised beyond the borough…Ainoha is an outstanding student in our municipal school of music which has many other young students showing great promise, students that I am sure we will all be hearing about in the future. Ainoha deserves this recognition because it is as a re-

sult of her determination. She is a modest girl, very active in Adeje, singing at local events, as a soloist she sang at the Easter Passion procession playing Mary Magdalene. She is always ready to help, lending her voice wherever it is needed. We send her our congratulations and our full support.” According to sources in Telecinco the young Adeje singer has surprised participants, coaches and press with her amazing singing voice, La Voz returns to air on September 16th, next Monday, with guest coaches such as Rosario Flores, David Bisbal, Malú and Antonio Orozco.

The organisation provides services from education to employment, rehabilitation to reading services. ONCE is a selffunding organisation, selling tickets for its own lottery. There are 63,000 members with 17,000 selling tickets on Spanish streets. Queen Sofia of Spain has accepted an award on behalf of Spain for adopting laws to include people with disabilities in all aspects of society - from education and jobs to public life. She called the Franklin Delano Roosevelt International Disability Rights Award “a stimulus to keep moving ahead toward a society with equal opportunity for all”. The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice and the Roosevelt Institute presented the award to Spain at a UN ceremony on Monday. In a message, SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki Moon praised Spain for taking major steps to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which was adopted seven years ago. Spanish police detained three Britons for distributing laughing gas, at a bar in the upmarket tourist resort of Marbella on the Costa del Sol, the interior ministry has said. The manager of the bar and two female bartenders sold balloons filled with nitrous oxide, which induces euphoria and laughter when inhaled, for five euros a dose, it said in a statement. “Police learned that the sale of the product was carried out openly by employees of the establishment as part of their duties under the supervision of the manager, who controlled the activity and kept the money collected from the sale of the product.” Nitrous oxide has several legitimate uses, including numbing pain during medical procedures such as dentistry, but its sale for recreational use in Spain is prohibited by law because of its possible harmful side effects.

Mijas Evicts OAP’s In Care Home Row

A small group of Dutch pensioners moved to Spain with a dream to build their own homes and live out their days simply. Now 17 years later they claim they are being evicted from their homes, ‘kidnapped’ by social workers and forced to break up their idyllic community. Mijas town hall has accused the half a dozen friends of running an illegal care home and demanded that it must be closed down.

Monitored by local Spanish and English media, the boss of Mijas Town Hall social services Eva Gonzales accused the group of being unhygienic and suggested some of its elderly members were being abused. Using a search warrant and escorted by local police she explored the entrance to the site in the Valtocado area, before releasing the details of the ‘squalid’ conditions to the press. Claims in rival newspapers that they are ‘hippies’ and living ‘surrounded by rubbish’ in an area ‘not fit for human habitation’ have been completely denied by the residents. Patricia ‘Alex’ Derks, who runs the camp, told the Olive Press that she is not running a care home and is now counter suing the town hall for its actions. The mother-of-two, from Nijmegen, insists that their only crime is living a different sort of lifestyle: “It is anything but squalid here and actually rather charming. We have lived here for 17 years without any problems and always kept ourselves to ourselves and tried to live sustainably,” she said. She explained how the group, who originally numbered a dozen, was legally formed in Holland 26 years ago as a ‘commune’ of like-minded people. Inspired by the Good Life, they moved to Spain, where land was considerably cheaper and built up their community, planting a vegetable garden and gener-

ally living off the land. To help make ends meet they pooled their savings and pensions and supplemented this by selling scrap metal and hand-made quilts and dog beds. However, last month, one of the members of the group Judith, 83, who had a stroke four years ago, was taken into hospital by ambulance having suffered a fall. She had contracted an infection, while not serious, the infection and a couple of bruises led to the Costa del Sol Hospital, in Marbella, contacting social services about her condition. Alex said: “However her problems are normal for any person getting older, she is a bit clumsy and has had a few falls. She simply has some bladder issues. But nurses took her bruises for abuse, and after asking questions she didn’t understand she was taken to a nursing home in Torremolinos. Isolated from anyone who understood Dutch, and unable to get home, she called her daughter who, with the Dutch embassy, managed to get her released from the care home.” The ‘inquisition’ that has followed has worried the other residents so much that they have become concerned for their safety. Luckily however, other neighbours and expats in the Mijas area have rallied around with support.

Arthur Webster, 67, a website designer, from WHERE, has been trying to understand why these vulnerable, yet harmless people, are ‘becoming victims of persecution’. “Mijas town hall has single-handedly attacked this group, using questionable tactics,” he said. I have spent a lot of time there and have had often been in their homes and can say it is simply not true. And there is no evidence to support the claims.” Derks, who this week put in a denuncia against Eva Gonzales, continued: “If the authorities had actually looked around they would have seen there are only six of us living here, and there is clearly no care home.” She continued that photos in the local press apparently showing a junk yard are actually of their scrap metal yard, much of which was waiting to be collected. A group of huts, which were said to be their homes, were actually storage units. The town hall insisted this week that they still believed it was a care home and they wanted it dismantled. But as Webster concluded: “All ex-pats must group together to fight this persecution. We are under attack and need to support each other and be aware of the legal resources that are available to us.”

Brit Dies In Balcony Death Barcelona Man Named

A British man, understood to be 24-yearold pub manager Joe Smith, from Leicester, died whilst on holiday in Barcelona. It was reported he was injured in an accident involving a lift.

Friends took to social media to launch a fundraising appeal following his death. Paul Talbot, described on Twitter as a tattoo artist, posted a message that said: “Im trying to help raise money for joe smith , who was tragically killed in barcelona while on holiday , and without any travel insurance. Its going to cost 4000 just to get him

home.” (sic) The Foreign Office confirmed it had been made aware of the incident. A spokeswoman said: “We can confirm the death of a British national in Barcelona on the 3rd of September. We are in contact with the family and are providing consular assistance.”

Alan Clare, 34, from Warrington, Cheshire, died hours after arriving for a stag party in the popular coastal resort of Benidorm. The amateur rugby player fell to his death from a fifth-floor hotel balcony in Spain.

Reports have suggested he may have been trying to climb on to the balcony through an open window after he was locked out

of his room. His body was found at the four-star Las Dalmatas Hotel near Levante Beach at around 3am on Saturday. Known as Bundy to friends, Mr Clare played for Bank Quay Bulls rugby league club. Friends have posted online tributes to him. Lisa Geraghty wrote: “Absolutley amazed with whats happening for you alan ... you was so loved and its so sad its took something like this to show you what you meant to people xx.” Jill Malkin added: “RIP Gone too soon ... heaven has a gained a pure gentlemanAngel xx.” Kate Wright said: “Gone to soon ‘god only takes the BEST’ rip mate sadly missed xxxxxx.” Police are not treating Mr Clare’s death as suspicious.

King Juan Carlos’ madrid Loses out daughter Sells up on olympic Bid

KInG Juan Carlos’s daughter Cristina and her husband have put their seven-room mansion in Barcelona up for sale for 9.8 million euros.

The three-floor home in the exclusive Pedralbes area of the Catalan capital is offered for sale by real estate firm, which specialises in selling to wealthy Russians, daily newspaper El Mundo and other media reported. The agency described the property as a “luxury villa in the most prestigious zone of Barcelona” in a “quiet and exclusive” area that allows for “maximum confidentiality”. The 1,000-square-metre mansion has seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a large living room with a fireplace, and a lift, along with a 1,300-squaremetre garden and salt water swimming pool. Cristina and her husband, the former Olympic handball player Inaki Urdangarin, bought the home in 2004 for 5.8 million euros and spent around 3,000,000 euros upgrading the property.

ThE choice of Tokyo to host the 2020 olympics disappointed the thousands of people who had gathered in Madrid’s city centre, expecting to welcome the news that the spanish capital had been picked.

King Juan Carlos lent Cristina 1.2 million euros to help her buy the house, the royal palace confirmed on Monday after Spanish media reported that the loan was mentioned in an analysis of her finances carried out by the Spanish tax office. The analysis was requested by an investigating judge, Jose Castro, who in May ordered an investigation into Cristina’s tax affairs as part of a tax and money-laundering case against her husband. Castro is investigating accusations that Urdangarin and his former business partner Diego Torres embezzled six million euros in

public funds meant for sports events. The money was allegedly placed in the non-profit Noos Institute, which Urdangarin chaired from 2004 to 2006 and of which Cristina was a board member. Neither she nor Urdangarin has been formally charged with any crime. Cristina, 48, a manager in the social programmes foundation of the Catalan finance group CaixaBank, moved to Geneva last month with her four children, where she will work on the firm’s joint projects with UN institutions. Her husband will remain in Barcelona.

Many were in tears after the Spanish capital missed out for a third time, going out in the first round of ballots by the International Olympic Committee. Spain had previously tried to host the Summer Games for 1972, 2012, 2016. “This is unfair. It is a fraud,” one man said, slamming the IOC as a “mafia.” Disappointed Madrid residents gradually left the area, where they had been entertained by musicians. Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Spain had flown to Buenos Aires, for the IOC Session. The royals joined the Spanish delegation in hopes of Madrid winning the bid. Athletes and directors of sports federations also expressed a deep disappointment. The choice of Madrid would have been “very good

for the motivation of athletes” in the crisis-hit country, where budget cuts have affected sports as well, Olympic windsurfing champion Blanca Manchon said. Once considered a long shot because of Spain’s deep financial crisis, Madrid’s bid gained momentum in the run-up to the IOC’s vote by arguing the games would stimulate economic growth. Many Spaniards hoped the chance to host the world’s biggest sporting event would have created jobs after the economy had been in recession for most of the past four years. Madrid wanted to become

the second Spanish city to hold the Olympics. Barcelona was able to transform itself from a post-industrial town into one of Europe’s biggest tourist destinations through the interest generated by the 1992 Summer Games. But Madrid’s “responsible,” thrifty bid based on having 80% of its venues already built wasn’t enough to convince the IOC members. The economy wasn’t the only problem. Questions over its shaky antidoping record hurt its past bids, and even a new antidoping law passed recently apparently didn’t assuage all the lingering concerns.

Train Driver Brit Arrested Admits Speeding T he driver of the train which crashed in Spain killing 79 people admitted to speeding at more than twice the limit in a phone call immediately after the disaster. The train was carrying 218 passengers from Madrid when it hurtled off the tracks and slammed into a concrete wall causing some carriages to flip over and catch fire.

In Gibraltar Row

Spanish police arrested a British man accused of branding their officers “torturers” for their treatment of motorists queuing to enter Gibraltar and of urging protests outside their homes.

A recording has emerged in Spanish media in which Francisco Garzon is heard telling a colleague he had been distracted and had been travelling at 190kph (118mph) instead of 80kph (50mph). The audio, released by Spain’s El Pais newspaper, Garzon also said he had complained on previous occasions of the risks posed by the ‘inhuman’ curve where the train derailed on July 24, near Santiago de Compostela in the north west of the country. Garzon has been charged by Magistrate Luis Alaez with “79 counts of homicide and numerous offences of bodily harm, all of them committed through professional recklessness”. He is not in jail as he is not thought to pose a risk

of absconding. In the phone call he made to activate the emergency protocol after the Alvia train crashed, Garzon is heard saying: “There must be many injured, it (train) has turned over, I can’t get out of the cabin. “It’s because I got distracted and I had to be going at 80 but I was going at 190, something like that,” he added, admitting he was going too fast. “I had already mentioned this to the safety people, that this (curve) was dangerous, that we would get distracted one day and that would be it.” Following the accident, Garzon admitted in court he was going too fast. Garzon, in his phone call to RENFE, the train company, ex-

pressed concern for the passengers and suggested the curve at A Grandeira, where the speed limit is 80, was an accident waiting to happen. He is heard to say: “My God, I mentioned this before to the guy in safety that this is very dangerous... we are human and this can happen to us... this is curve is inhuman... with... with a warning light... it’s not right, man, that they do these things, man. The driver has to be ... but we are human. It’s my conscience and those poor passengers.” The black box recorder showed Garzon had been on the phone to the on-board conductor shortly before the accident, and stopped speaking just 11 seconds before the derailment.

The man was arrested in Madrid and is accused of slandering and insulting police on a website where he condemned them for their stringent traffic checks at the border, the interior ministry said. “In this publication he called them ‘torturers and murderers’ and incited people to carry out protests against officers at their homes,” it said in a statement. Police only gave the man’s initials -- E.E., but the Spanish press have named him as Emilio Esteban. “Here are The Faces of Spanish Border... ‘TORTURERS’,” read a message on the website allegedly run by Esteban, above pictures of uniformed Spanish police carrying out checks of vehicles at the Gibraltar border. They look like ordinary men and women but these ‘criminals’ are the people who, according to Gibraltarians, have ‘tortured’ innocent tourists and travellers,” it said. “You don’t have to be a victim of police abuse. Escrache the Guardia Civil!,” it added, using a Spanish slang word for a form of protest that involves protesters posting fliers and shouting slogans on the doorsteps of politicians.

The police said he is a Briton living in Spain, but did not specify whether he was originally from Gibraltar, where it is common for British nationals to have Spanish names. The website was set up after Spanish police introduced stringent border checks at the border with Gibraltar in July, resulting in people having to wait for hours in the blazing heat to enter the tiny territory. Spain argues the checks are needed to stop smuggling but Gibraltar says they are retaliation against its decision to create an artificial reef in the contested waters around the British overseas territory. Spanish police have complained of being pelted with stones and insulted by drivers stuck in queues waiting to leave Gibraltar, a British-governed enclave at Spain’s southern tip which is home to around 30,000 people. Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz blasted the website as “an intolerable attack on security forces and the rule of law”. “This attack violates their privacy and compromises the safety of agents. We are going to fight to defend our security forces to the very end,” he added. Esteban has denied encouraging violence against Spanish police: “We called on people to photograph and protest peacefully against the Guardia Civil, not throw stones and insult,” he wrote in a Twitter message on August 31.

Top 10 Things That Spaniards Hate About The UK

A survey has been carried out by Local. es which laid bare the things that Spanish residents hate about their British counterparts. Binge drinking: Rather than drinking alcohol with a meal and during the course of an evening, young Brits choose booze as their main course and start early with the intention of getting as drunk as fast as possible, stopping only to get takeaway food on the way home. Punctuality: Be late once and you may be forgiven; be late twice and you’ll get a reputation. Spaniards find it hard to

believe how seriously Brits take their punctuality. “What? I’m only 30 minutes late,” a Spaniard may utter in disbelief when addressing his disapproving

British friends. Personal space: Any Spaniard who’s been introduced to someone in the UK has probably picked up on Brits’ re-

luctance to greet with kisses. Physical contact is a big no-no in most social situations, leading Spanish expats to be labelled as touchy-feely if they invade a Brit’s personal space with an intrusive pat on the back. Inappropriate winter dress: Miniskirts and skimpy tops when it’s minus five degrees? Spaniards still hit the town in winter but they wrap up warm without fail. British youth’s decision to brave it without the help of a coat baffles many Spaniards in the UK. Excessive politeness: Equivalents for ‘please’, ‘ thanks’ and ‘sorry’ are common in Spain too but in Britain they

are repeated in conversations more frequently, often to the point where it can seem absurd to Spanish visitors. Bad coffee: Spaniards are often shocked by the quality of coffee served in the UK. Massive mugs of watery, tasteless liquid are not what you’d call their “cup of tea”. Fake tan: Britain’s obsession with being tanned is quite literally beyond the pale for many Spaniards. Fake tan and excessive make-up seems odd and somewhat tacky for Spanish expats. Bathroom Carpets: Carpets help keep British homes warm in winter, but Spanish visitors but find bathroom car-

pets very unhygienic. Takeaway food: Whether it’s the abundance of fast food joints or the often atrocious quality of the food served, Spaniards often yearn for fresh, wholesome food when living in Britain. What’s most surprising to them is that curry has become the national dish, rather than fish and chips or roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Respecting queues: Rather than being surprised by how Brits queue in an orderly fashion for almost everything, Spaniards are usually more surprised by how riled they can become if someone dares to skip a few places.

Royal Mail Privatisation Goes Ahead

The Government has announced a £3bn stock market listing of Royal Mail launching the most ambitious privatisation in decades. In a statement confirming Royal Mail’s intention to float, ministers said the decision was an important step towards ensuring a “healthy future” for the company, despite intense opposition from trade unions which have pledged to ballot on industrial action in the coming weeks.

Under the proposed deal, members of the public will be able to apply for a minimum

of £750-worth of shares in the newly-listed Royal Mail, while 150,000 of its UK-based employees will receive free shares likely to be worth in the area of £2,000 each. Endorsing a privatisation that was rejected by Margaret Thatcher, Vince Cable, the Business Secretary, said it was “an important day for the Royal Mail, its employees and its customers”. “(The) Government is taking action to secure a healthy future for the company. These measures will help ensure the long-term sustainability of the six days a week, one-price-goes-anywhere universal postal service.” Royal Mail confirmed the company would adopt a robust dividend policy in which it would pay out in the region of 50% of its profits as divi-

dends, and that it had lined up £1.4bn of new debt facilities from a syndicate of banks. Royal Mail currently pays an average interest rate of 8.8% on loans from the Government, meaning its new borrowings will be on far more attractive terms to the company. The exact size of the initial public offering (IPO) of Royal Mail shares will depend on the level of demand from investors, although Mr Cable said he expected a majority of the company to be in private hands by the time the share sale is completed in November. The company will pay a dividend of £133m for the 2013-14 financial year, which it said would have been £200m if it had been listed throughout the year.

Thursday’s announcement acknowledged that strike action was a possibility, and said Royal Mail had “contingency plans in place and will also consider its legal options”. “Negotiations between Royal Mail and the CWU are continuing and Royal Mail remains committed to reaching an agreement with the CWU and averting industrial action. However, there can be no guarantee that negotiations will lead to a successful outcome or the aversion of industrial action,” it said. Moya Greene, Royal Mail’s chief executive, said she was determined to “deliver a revitalised company” and that the injection of private capital would help her to achieve

William Quits RAF

Prince William has left the Armed Forces after more than seven years of military service. William carried out his last shift on Tuesday and is now concentrating on expanding his charitable interests particularly in the field of conservation of endangered species.

The Duke will continue to carry out royal engagements but is not expected to increase his number of public duties. The second in line to the throne is in a “transitional” year, sources have said, and is considering options for his “public service”. An announcement will be made about his decision within the next 12 months. Air Chief Marshal Sir Andrew Pulford said Flight Lieutenant Wales had been an integral part of the RAF’s Search and Rescue Force, as Sea King pilot, in Anglesey: “Throughout his tour, his airmanship, often in the most demanding of conditions, has contributed directly to saving lives in the mountains of North Wales and from the ravages of the Irish Sea,” Sir Andrew said. He has earned the respect of all who have worked with him as a highly professional and competent pilot.” Kensington Palace released a statement saying: “His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge is to leave operational service in the Armed Forces: “He completes his Tour with the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force at RAF Valley, Anglesey, after more than seven-and-a-

that objective. “(Our) network and our strong brand, coupled with the high service quality delivered by our people enable us to take full advantage of the growth in UK e-commerce to further enhance our preeminent parcels business. Combining this UK presence with our pan-European parcels business GLS, should result in a financial profile that combines revenue growth and margin progression to underpin strong cash flow generation.” The flotation was attacked by Labour’s shadow business secretary, Chuka Umunna, who said the sell-off was “politically-motivated”. “Ministers are pushing


ahead with this politicallymotivated fire-sale of Royal Mail to fill the hole left by George Osborne’s failed plan,” he said. “This is taking place despite opposition from a huge coalition including the Conservative Bow Group, the Countryside Alliance, the National Federation of Subpostmasters, the cross party BIS Select Committee as well as Royal Mail employees themselves. “The Government has not addressed the huge concerns which remain on the impact the Royal Mail sale will have on consumers, businesses and communities, but ministers are ploughing on regardless.”

Paid To Leave Easyjet Flight

Passengers on an EasyJet plane were delayed on Wednesday for almost an hour while a pilot asked for volunteers to leave the overbooked flight.

half years of full-time military service. He will continue to support the work of the Queen and the Royal Family through a programme of official engagements, both at home and overseas, with The Duchess of Cambridge. “The Duke will work closely over the next 12 months with the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. He will expand his work in the field of conservation, particularly in respect of endangered spe-

cies. The Duke will continue to work with his charities on issues relating to children and young people, veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces. The Duke is currently considering a number of options for public service, a further announcement on which will follow in due course. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George are expected to move into their official residence at Kensington Palace within the next few weeks.”

The Italy-bound scheduled flight was overloaded and the captain offered customers money, a hotel and another flight to get off. He originally offered 250 Euros but it was only when he increased the amount to 400 Euros that four passengers voluntarily

left. EasyJet confirmed that they had to pay four passengers to get off their Gatwick to Bari, Italy, flight because it was overloaded. As they left the delayed aircraft their fellow passengers cheered them off.

9/11 remembered

aMErICans marked the twelfth anniversary of the september 11 terrorist attacks with bell-tolling, the reading of victims’ names and moments of silence. at the World Trade Center, hundreds gathered for a sombre ceremony marking 12 years since the attacks.

Bagpipes and a youth choir started the solemn proceedings, held around two reflecting pools that stand in the footprint of the fallen twin towers. Relatives recited the names of those who died in the 2001 attack, as well as in another attack in 1993. A moment of silence at 8.46am marked the moment when the first plane hit the twin towers 12 years ago. Another pause was held at 9.03am, the time the second plane hit the twin towers. In Washington, President Barack Obama held a moment of silence on the White House South Lawn. He was joined by First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and staffers. The president then visited the Pentagon Memorial. Nearly 3,000 people died when hijacked jets crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United Flight 93 crashed killing 40 passengers and crew.

Continuing a decision made last year, no politicians speak at the ceremony. Two skyscrapers are nearly completed on either side of the plaza, including One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere at 1,776 feet - a symbolic number chosen in reference to the year the Declaration of Independence was signed. Around the world, thousands of volunteers have pledged to do good deeds, honouring an anniversary that was designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance in 2009.

All Change For “The First Rock Bank Notes? Astronaut

The Bank of England is deliberating about replacing Britain’s paper banknotes with new polymer varieties. The change would be the first time in the 300-year history of official UK banknotes that they would be made of a material other than paper. The Bank also intends to make the new banknotes around 15% smaller than the current versions.

Space Rat”


inger and campaigner Bob Geldof is to travel into space on a one-hour commercial space flight with the company Space XC in early 2015 - which he has described as “pretty mindblowing”.

The Bank’s Deputy Governor Charlie Bean said: “Polymer banknotes are cleaner, more secure and durable than paper notes. They are also cheaper and more environmentally friendly. However the Bank of England would print notes on polymer only if we were persuaded that the public would continue to have confidence in, and be comfortable with, our notes.” Deliberations will last until November and the decision on whether to introduce them will be made final in December. Polymer notes have been in use in Australia for 25 years, and were recently been introduced in Canada, under the Governorship of Mark Carney. The Bank of England said it had been researching polymer banknotes for three years, but the final decision to launch

the consultation was made by Mr Carney, who is now the Bank of England Governor. The new polymer notes could be introduced for the new £5 note, which will feature Winston Churchill, and the new £10, which will feature Jane Austen, in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Although the polymer notes cost around 50% more to produce than existing paper notes (“a few pence each” according to Chief Cashier Chris Salmon) they also last longer - between two and a half and six times. Current five pound notes have a life of around two years. The Bank said it hoped the new notes, which are harder to counterfeit, would reduce banknote forgery in the UK, which is at higher levels than many other countries.

The 61-year-old Irish star will fly in a Lynx Mark II shuttle powered by four rocket engines which will take off from a normal runway. It accelerates to a speed of almost Mach 3 (about 2,200mph) within three minutes, according to the firm’s website. The former Boomtown Rat frontman, who said he would be the first Irishman in space, is due to start his training in a flight simulator based in the Netherlands later this year. In a statement, he said: “Being the ‘first Irishman in space’ is not only a fantastic honour but pretty mind-blowing. The first rock astronaut space rat! Elvis may have left the building but Bob Geldof will have left the planet! Wild! Who would have thought it possible in

my lifetime?” The website,, said of the Lynx Mark II: “At an altitude of nearly 60km (37 miles), the pilot switches off the engines. The parabolic flight begins. The crew experiences weightlessness for several minutes. “The Lynx Mark II reaches apogee (highest point) at 103km (64 miles). The official frontier of space begins at 100km (62 miles). A place where the sky is completely black, despite the sunshine. From here, the Earth’s curvature is clearly visible from the cockpit.”

man” and a “bad husband”, he was not a child rapist, the jury was told. It was a “strange case of child rape” without any DNA evidence or injuries to the alleged victim, who claimed she had been raped and abused while a young girl, his legal team said. One of his supporters and close friend Nigel Pivaro, who played Terry Duckworth in Coronation Street, said: “He has suffered two years of hell and probably more also due to his high profile far more than most. It has been a long journey for him. Now the jury has spoken, he can pick up his career and his life.” Le Vell was initially arrested

on September 30, 2011, but the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to proceed with the case. But after a review of the evidence following fresh allegations by the girl, Le Vell was re-arrested and charged in February 2013. He first joined Coronation Street in 1983 and quickly endeared himself to fans, who have followed the trials and tribulations of Kevin, from his days as Brian Tilsley’s apprentice mechanic through to his stormy marriage to Sally, played by Sally Dynevor. He did not appear in any episodes of the soap during the legal proceedings.


Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell was found not guilty of child sex offences including rape at his trial in Manchester. Mr Le Vell, 48, on trial under his real name Michael Turner, breathed out and said “thank you” as the jury’s verdict was announced.

Mr Le Vell held his head up as the male foreman began giving the verdicts after around five hours of deliberations. On the fourth count of not guilty he nodded his head in agreement with them. His brother and sisters, who sat in the public gallery, were in tears as the verdicts were delivered. One man shouted “Get in” when the last verdict was read out. Surrounded by supporters outside court, Mr Le Vell said he was “delighted” and that the verdict was a “big

weight off everyone’s shoulders”. He added: “I might go and have a drink now.” Asked when he would return to Coronation Street, Mr Le Vell replied: “I don’t know, I might have a holiday first. I’ll have to go and have a chat with my boss.” The actor, who plays mechanic Kevin Web-

ster in the ITV show, had strenuously denied 12 child sex abuse charges, including five of rape. A Coronation Street spokeswoman said: “We are looking forward to meeting with Michael to discuss his return to the programme.” The eight female and four male jurors were told they must decide if the alleged victim was telling the truth or set out to “quite literally destroy the life” of the accused. During the eight day trial the “demons” in Mr Le Vell’s private life were laid bare - his alcoholism and womanising while his wife battled breast cancer. The court heard of his “dark secret” that he had enjoyed a string of one-night stands behind the back of his wife of 25 years, Janette Beverley. And he had abandoned the family home to get drunk in the pub each night. But while Le Vell might be described as a “weak, stupid and drunk

Da Pinchi Code

Police are investigating whether burglars are using chalk markings to communicate with each other about which houses to target. The symbols have been described by some as the “Da Pinchi Code”.

A warning was issued to residents by police in Salford after one of the signs was found on the wall of a pensioner’s home. Greater Manchester Police say they have spoken to residents in the Walkden area about what to look out for and are asking the public to be vigilant. Some markings signify a house would be a valuable target, indicating that a vulnerable woman lives there or that the householders are wealthy. Others indicate there is an alarm system or that the property has already been burgled. Former Greater Manchester detective David Anthony said the signs are a recognised code widely used by criminals to commit break-ins and distrac-

tion burglaries: “They are markings by travelling criminals who come in to an area, mark their territory, and let others know they’re working the area or have been there and what sort of pickings people can find,” he said. Crime experts say the signs, marked with chalk on pavements and walls, have been used in other parts of the country. Devon & Cornwall Police and Warwickshire Police had both previously issued warnings to residents about the code. According to criminal psychologist Dr David Holmes, the signs are worrying because they indicate thieves are working in gangs and becoming organised: “It reminds you of the days of Fagin and of little groups of lads working together. However, the modern day context is very much more formidable.” Police are advising anyone who finds one of the signs on their property to take a picture so it can be reported and then wash away the chalk immediately.


Best Biscuit

What’s your favourite biscuit? The chances are it’s a chocolate digestive, if so, you will agree with a poll that has ruled once and for all that the chocolate digestive is Britain’s Best Biscuit.

The chocolaty treat came top in a poll of 480 people asked to choose their favourite biscuit from a list of ten, and 23% chose the chocolate digestive as their favourite biscuit. They claimed the combination of thick chocolate and biscuit was irresistible, especially with a hot cup of tea to dunk it in. The humble chocolate-free plain digestive came in second place, gaining just a fifth of the vote, with chocolate chip cookies, bourbons and custard creams making up the remaining top five. In third place was young pretender, the chocolate chip cookie with 15% of pollsters claiming it was their favourite. Bourbon managed 12% and took fourth place while custard creams claimed 11% of the vote and was placed fifth. Malted milk were voted in at sixth place by 7%, with old time favourite the ginger nut take seventh place with just 5% of the vote. Shortbread came in at eighth position with 4% with fig rolls, 3% and rich


tea, 1%, coming bottom of the poll. One pollster said: ‘Nothing beats a chocolate digestive dunked in a cup of tea or coffee. The melted chocolate is just delicious and then the tasty biscuit – I could easily eat a whole packet in one sitting.’ Another said: ‘I don’t understand how anyone could enjoy a rich tea. They’re tasteless and as soon as you dunk them, fall to pieces. I hate having biscuit crumbs in the bottom of my tea. That said, if it was the only biscuit available, I’d probably still eat it.’ A third added: ‘I love chocolate chip cookies. It doesn’t matter whether they’re straight out of the packet, from the bakery or I bake them myself. They are definitely my top choice. My two children have inherited my love of them too – home from school and it’s a glass of milk with chocolate cookies to dunk.’ A spokesman for NetVoucherCodes., who commissioned the research, said: ‘It’s fair to say us Brits love our biccies, and why not! We all need a tasty treat every now and again and a cup of tea really wouldn’t be the same without a biscuit to dunk in it. There’s so much choice now when it comes to choosing the best biscuits but it’s good to see the old favourites are standing strong at the top of our poll.’

Charity To Get Cowell Millions

Simon Cowell has said he will leave his estimated £240m fortune to charity, not his family. The music mogul, who is expecting his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, spoke of his plans in an interview with Esquire magazine.

The hugely successful star seemed keen to insist his offspring would not be on the receiving end of his multimillionpound empire: “I’m going to leave my money to somebody. A charity, probably kids and dogs,” he said. “I don’t believe in passing on from one generation to another. Your legacy has to be that hopefully you gave enough people an opportunity so that they could do well and you gave them your time, taught them what you know.” The 53-year-old also said he had no intention of retiring: “A lot of people who retire, they hate their job so much, they just love the idea of not working any more. That horrifies me. I’m going to be still working in my 80s or 90s if I can,” he said. There has been extensive speculation around the sex of Cowell’s unborn child. In the past he has spoken of his excitement of seeing the scan: “I went to see a scan today and it

is just surreal. You literally see this thing which is now alive moving around. I feel very paternal right now,” he told The Times. In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, shown in the States, the X Factor USA judge sits down for candid chat with the comedian, who tries, unsuccessfully to get him to confirm the gender of his baby. “And it’s a boy?” the 55-year-

old chat show host asks. ”You’ll have to wait and see,’ Simon replies. “But it’s a boy,” she continues. “Well, there are a lot of boys in my family so the odds are...” he hints. “Right that it’s going to be a boy?” And so what’s his name?” she presses, to which he simply laughs as their banter continues, before later adding, ‘I’ll tell you later.’

ThE new biopic of nelson Mandela has premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom tells the story of his journey from his childhood in a rural village to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of south africa.

Directed by Justin Chadwick and starring British actor Idris Elba as Mr Mandela, the film incorporates all of the significant life events of the 95-year-old anti-apartheid icon. It includes his early days as a smooth lawyer, to his recruitment by the ANC, to his arrest, imprisonment and release. There has been criticism that the film, which is based on the former South African president’s autobiography, attempts to take on too much content. For example, the 27 years Mr Mandela spent in prison is reflected in just 30 minutes in the film, which is due for release in the UK in January. But Elba, who is best known for TV shows The Wire and Luther, has been praised for his performance in the lead role. The Hollywood Reporter said: “It takes a commanding actor to fill the shoes of the man most instrumental in ending institutionalised oppression in South Africa, and the charismatic Idris Elba proves equal to the task.” Speaking at the Toronto Film Festival, Elba said he thought it was important to show both sides of Mr Mandela in the film: “I moved to South Africa for about three

months prior to shooting, just so that I could understand what South Africa was like, and Cape Town and Johannesburg, and compare the two and understand the tribes and especially Mr Mandela’s tribe. So the challenges were massive, but we embraced them. He had a very difficult life, so we weren’t expected to make an easy film.” Early scenes in Chadwick’s film show Mr Mandela as a womaniser who was violent to his first wife Evelyn. His second wife, Winnie, is played by British actress Naomie Harris. Mr Mandela was released from hospital last week after three months of treatment for a lung infection.

Home-Made Is Best For Baby


esearchers from Glasgow University have found that popular baby foods contain far fewer nutrients than meals prepared at home. Jars of food made by Heinz, Boots, Cow & Gate, Hipp Organic, Organix and Ella’s Kitchen were found to contain high levels of sugar.

The study concluded that a child would receive half as much energy and protein from a “convenience” food as they would from an equivalent-sized home-made meal. The research team wrote in the journal Archives Of Disease In Childhood: “The UK infant food market mainly supplies sweet, soft, spoonable foods targeted from age four months. Most products are readymade spoonable foods that are no more energy-dense than formula milk and are, generally, much less nutrient-dense than home-made foods.” The study went on to say weaning foods “would not serve the intended purpose” of giving a baby extra nutrients or a range of tastes and textures. The researchers also showed that some foods are being promoted for use at the age of four months contrary to official guidance. Professor Charlotte Wright, who wrote the report said: “The irony about these weaning foods is that they are just giving more of the same. Mothers think they’re going on to something bigger and different and more mature, but actually they’re providing very similar nutrient content to milk - and before the

age of six months that’s all babies need.” In a statement, Heinz said: “Generations of parents have trusted Heinz baby foods as safe and nour-

ishing and which are specially prepared to meet babies’ nutritional needs with recipes that provide the right tastes and textures.” A spokeswoman for Ella’s Kitchen

Wet Nellie Sells For £555,000

A wealthy buyer splashed out £550,000 for the James Bond submarine car featured in The Spy Who Loved Me. The Lotus Esprit sold at

auction after a price war between a female buyer and a telephone bidder who took the prized collector’s piece.

said: “In the United Kingdom, we support breast feeding for the optimal time of six months. However, it may not always be possible or appropriate. As the study acknowl-

The distinctive-looking vehicle was designed for an underwater scene in the 1977 film starring Roger Moore as 007. In the film, 007 and Bond girl Anya Amasova, played by Barbara Bach, escapes a helicopter attack by driving the Esprit off a pier into the sea. Nicknamed the Wet Nellie, it is a fully operational submarine but cannot be driven on the road. Those in the room at RM Auctions in Battersea, south London, clapped as bids went up to £550,000, which after charges left the buyer £616,000 out of pocket. Peter Haynes, from RM Auctions, said the auctioneer was pleased with the price despite it coming in at under estimated prices of between £650,000 and £950,000: “We are very happy with that price, it is very strong money for what is an important piece of movie memorabilia,” Mr Haynes said. “Bearing in mind it is not a car that can be driven on the road, the price just goes to prove the draw that all Bond-related memorabilia has.” The Lotus Esprit, which has never been put up for sale before, had expected to fetch between £650,000 and £950,000. The famous car was the only one made for the film and cost about £65,000 when built, the equivalent of £330,000 today. The propeller-powered vehicle had been kept “undiscovered” in a Long Island storage unit for 10 years. A local couple unexpectedly found themselves the owners of the iconic motor after they won a blind auction for the contents of the unit. The Lotus was originally built by Perry Oceanographic in Florida and was piloted by a retired US Navy Seal.


edges, commercial weaning food is created to complement the nutrition gained from baby’s milk. Ella’s Kitchen creates its products with this exact goal. Our products are 100% organic, Soil Association approved and made following European regulations.” Anna Rosier, managing director of Organix said: “We support that breastfeeding to six months is the ideal form of first nutrition and ensure all of our stage 1 packaging contains the WHO guidelines. We are also aware that some parents decide to wean their little ones before then, so to support these parents we make it clear what foods could be suitable. “All of our foods are complementary to breastfeeding, and we adhere to the regulations for complementary foods for babies. We do not make foods with the purpose to replace breast milk as the primary source of nutrition before six months. We do not fortify our foods with vitamins and minerals, unless required to by EU food regulations, as the fortification of food is not permitted under organic rules.” The DoH recommends a gradual transition to solids starting with cereals, vegetables and fruits, before moving on to proteins. It recommends babies still continue to receive breast milk or a pint of formula a day while they are being weaned, up to their first birthday. A spokesperson for the British Specialist Nutrition Association, the body which represents baby food manufacturers, recommended that parents seek advice from a healthcare professional when thinking of starting weaning.

Ozzie, 19, Wins Flight Record

Australian Ryan Campbell has broken the record for the youngest person to fly a singleengine aircraft solo around the world. The 19-year-old touched down at Wollongong airport south of Sydney on Monday. He was met by members of his family and friends when he arrived down under.

He told reporters he pictured his arrival in Australia even before he had left on his mission around the world: “I’ve been thinking about that landing for a long, long time, and you know, probably even before it was a reality of actually going. And it was a good one, so I was happy with that,” the teenager said. Australian news reports said his flight began 10 weeks ago from Wollongong, in southern New South Wales. He has spent 200 hours flying through 14 different countries. His journey clocked up more than 24,000 nautical miles.

CopYCat engLiSH ViLLage


oU can’t fault the Chinese for copying things – they are masters of their art. They have even built a carbon copy of an English village. The architecture is themed according to classic English market town styles with cobbled streets, Victorian terraces and corner shops. It has been built in songjiang, just a few miles outside shanghai and they have called it Thames Town!

This copycat creation comes complete with a Gothic church, modelled on Christ Church; Clifton Down in Bristol, and red telephone boxes. There is a pub and a fish and chip shop copied from buildings in Lyme Regis, Dorset. However it is also completely deserted – some are even comparing it to the Jim Carey hit film the Truman Show, where Carrey’s character Truman Burbank unwittingly plays out his life on TV in a fake town, only realising something is

afoot when a stage light crashes to the ground. Songjiang New City was a new development, intended to draw the population away from central Shanghai. Within this city, one of the objectives for Thames Town was to provide home for the staff of the new universities in adjacent Songjiang University Town. Thames Town was completed in 2006, it covers an

area of 1 square kilometre and was designed for a population of 10,000, it cost an incredible £500million Although initially the houses sold rapidly, most purchases were by the relatively wealthy, as investments or second homes, and house prices rose to a high level. The proportion of owners taking up permanent residence was low. Thames Town is now mainly used

by middle-class newlyweds, as a backdrop for their English-themed wedding snaps. On entering the town you could be mistaken for thinking you had strolled into a quaint southern counties settlement. But on closer inspection many of the shops on the high street - with names like ‘Mike’s Records’ and ‘the Fish Bar’ - are empty. A bronze James Bond statue is one of the few tourist attractions, while hundreds of homes designed to imitate Victorian, Georgian and Tudor architecture sit quietly with no sign of residents. Thames Town is just one of Shanghai’s ‘One City, Nine Towns’ scheme, a cluster of satellite towns built around the city. Another replica town, called the Tianduchengy development in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, even features a fake Eiffel Tower that stands 108 metres tall. The Parisian scene is completed by grand European buildings, wide walkways, ornate fountains and statues. There is also a replica of a fountain from the Luxemburg Gardens in a main square called Champs Elysées.

Buckingham palace Break in a

rEVIEW into security has been ordered after a man scaled a fence at Buckingham Palace and managed to get inside the Queen’s home.

Police confirmed the man had been found “in an area currently open to the public during the day” and was arrested for burglary, trespass and criminal damage. A second man was arrested for conspiracy to commit burglary following the incident. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Both men have been bailed to return to a central London police station and enquiries continue. A review of the specific circumstances of this incident is being carried out. No members of the Royal Family were at Buckingham Palace at the time of the incident.” A spokesman added that security would form part of the

review. Buckingham Palace did not comment. The break-in is one of the most serious security breaches at the palace since 1982, when Michael Fagan managed to get inside the Queen’s private chambers while she was still in bed. The unemployed father-of-four, 31, spent around 10 minutes talking to the Queen after he climbed over the palace walls and up a drainpipe. The Queen raised the alarm when Fagan asked for a cigarette, allowing her to call for a footman who held him until police arrived. The Queen is spending her summer break at Balmoral Castle where she has been since the beginning of August and is not expected to return to the Palace until October.

Security Scares for royal family

The break-in at Buckingham Palace is the latest in a series of security scares involving the royal Family. • In March 2011, a car carrying the Prince of Wales and

the Duchess of Cornwall was mobbed by demonstrators who had split from a protest against higher university tuition fees. Camilla was visibly distressed after being poked in the ribs with a stick through an open window in the distinctive Rolls-Royce Phantom VI as she and Charles travelled to the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium. • In 2003, comedian Aaron Barschak managed to get into Prince William’s 21st birthday party at Windsor Castle. The self-styled “comedy-terrorist” set off a series of alarms and was caught on CCTV before he joined 300 guests at the bash and was removed. • In 1994, student David Kang charged at Charles while firing a starting pistol during a ceremony in Sydney, Australia. Kang was wrestled to the ground by New South Wales premier John Fahey and another man, while Charles was praised for his calm reaction. • In 1981, six blank shots were fired from the crowd while the Queen rode during the Trooping the Colour ceremony. The Queen’s horse was startled but she managed bring it back under control while police rushed to grab the shooter. • In 1974, Princess Anne was the target of an apparent kidnap attempt in The Mall near Buckingham Palace. Four people, including her bodyguard, Jim Beaton, were injured after shots were fired when their car was forced to halt by another vehicle which blocked their route. A police officer chased the driver, Ian Ball, and brought him to the ground before arresting him.

We’re off to see the Fans not OK with Wizard (again and Christian Grey again...and again)!! erald City along with henchmen the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion.....Really???

“Emerald City”

NBC hope to retell every bit of creator Frank L. Baum’s source material, the original 14 books he wrote about the merry old land of Oz. Pitched as a dark retelling -like “Game of Thrones” but in Oz.


“The Great and Powerful Oz”, the unofficial prequel to the Judy Garland starrer, “the Wizard of Oz” was great fun, a fitting tribute to the classic and did more than well enough for a possible sequel... but do we really need 3-yes 3, different TV series from 3 different net-

works all expanding on Dorothy’s adventures and the Land of Oz! “Dorothy Must Die”

CW and “Heroes” creator Tim Kring are hoping to adapt this young adult novel set in the present day-in which another Kansas girl travels by tornado to a war torn Oz, where we discover Dorothy never left and is now the fascist ruler of Em-

This one is described as a medical soap inspired by the themes and characters .All of a sudden “Dorothy Must Die” doesn’t sound quite as silly! As if this wasn’t enough, Syfy is planning its 2nd attempt at a miniseries based in Oz (the 1st “Tin Man back in 2007 was panned) called “The Warriors of Oz”. So whether you’re over the rainbow or not about all the Oz-based material hitting our screens, there certainly won’t be any escaping it!

Latest Ep.7 casting rumours 3 more hot young actors have been mentioned this week that could be joining the original trilogy stars in the much anticipated chapter 7 of the Star Wars saga. Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike, I Am Number Four) is the latest actor linked to the part of Luke’s son, Ben Skywalker, a part briefly linked to Ryan Gosling.

It was more like 50 tweets of Nay- seconds after the casting of Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim) and Dakota Johnson (Social Network, 21 Jump Street) as the protagonists, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming movie adaptation of E.L. James “mommy porn” bestseller “Fifty Shades of Grey”. Rabid fans immediately launched an online petition at , which received 7,000 signatures in 24 hours after the author announced the casting on her twitter page. Loyalists of the book series had their hearts set on Matt Bomer (White Collar) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) to play their favourite novels steamy couple; “All readers believe matt is christian (sic)”

There are also 2 females rumoured to be under consideration for the role of Han and Leia’s daughter, Jaina Solo, Chloë Grace Moretz (Hit Girl from Kick Ass) and the lesser known

In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto.

Ian Somerholder (Vampire Diaries) and “True Bloods” Alexander Skarsgard before the official announcement was made. This is the second casting choice this month that has been met with outrage from disgruntled fans, another petition was set up against the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel known only as “Superman vs Batman” at the moment-with over 90,000 signatures and counting!

Danger! Falling Rock

Rachel Hurd-Wood is said to have read and auditioned for the role.....more news as soon as I hear it-May the Force be with you!

The Lone Ranger

“Matt Bomer is perfect to play this role… He’s the only Christian Grey,” another wrote. “He is a great actor and he can fit the character perfectly… No Bomer No Movie.” Cruelly, Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith was branded not beautiful enough to play Anastasia. As well as Bomer, several other hot male actors had been linked to the part of the troubled billionaire including new Superman Henry Cavill,

The director McG, the man behind the big screen, megastar remake of cult TV show “Charlie’s Angels” has his sights on another TV classic, “The Fall Guy”, and he wants “The Rock” to be his fall guy!

The show aired back in the ‘80s and starred ex 6 million dollar man Lee Majors as a Hollywood stuntman who did a spot of bounty

hunting on the side, utilising his stuntman skills to bag the bounty every week! The movie version has been in development hell for years, Warner Bros and Dreamworks have both hoped to start a new franchise with Nicholas Cage in the starring role, but it’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson- Hollywood gold at the moment, reviving ailing series such as GI Joe and The Fast and the Furious-who it seems will finally bring “the unknown stuntman” to the cinemas!

ThE biggest home TV ever made to watch at home, has been unveiled by samsung at a trade fair in Berlin. It has a huge 110in screen and has four times the number of pixels on a current hD set, showing images in more detail. The vast panel has been likened to looking through a window and will be on sale from next spring.

It is part of the new generation of supersize ultra-high-definition TVs which promise astonishing picture clarity. For those who cannot wait, the 98in S9 version has just gone on sale in Britain for £40,000. However, there are smaller models with screens of 50-60ins with more modest price tags of ‘just’ £5,000. Next year’s football World Cup in Brazil will be the first major event to be broadcast in full Ultra HD to viewers in Japan, and the Rugby World Cup in England in 2015 will be the first in the UK. Consumer electronics guru, Barry Fox, said the images on the new sets are extremely impressive, offering a far better experience than 3D: ‘The pictures are mind-blowing, it is like looking through a window,’ he said.

The set was unveiled by Samsung’s Michael Zoeller, senior director of European sales and marketing, among a number of new innovations at an industry tech show in Berlin. He said the screen is so big that players would appear almost life-size to viewers during a football match. ‘This looks stunning. The screen in nearly 2.5 metres across,’ he said. The South Korean electronics giant also presented a television that allows two people to watch different shows at the same time. The S9C features a giant 55-inch curved screen to give viewers a cinema experience in their living room. The television, expected to cost around £7,000, boasts a cutting-edge OLED screen - offering the ‘amazing’ MultiView feature, which it is hoped will put an end to arguments over the remote control Viewers wear special glasses that pick up one piece of content at a time, with audio delivered through a built-in earpiece. ‘Two people can watch two different programmes at the same time in full screen in full HD and even in 3D with Samsung MultiView glasses,’ said Zoeller. ‘It is like having two televisions in one.’ A spokesperson for the company was unable to confirm when it will be on sale in the UK.

SharpLeS in SeSSiOn By John Sharples

ThErE must be something in the air! Many golden oldie pop stars are making new material. Thankfully, Cher has decided to come out of retirement completely and she has a brand new album out later this month. her single, Woman’s World, is wonderful.

the oldies are Back me, she is one of the great divas of the modern age. For the first time in years, it looks like I will actually know who some of the artistes are in the album charts. Sting, Kenny Rogers, Gary Numan are all poised to bring us new CD’s before Christmas too. I almost feel as though I have taken a trip in the Tardis back to the 1980’s. To a time when songs were songs and records were released on vinyl. I had better start saving my pennies. I used to follow the pop charts loyally. I loved listening to the UK top 40 on Radio One every Sunday. Then one day I simply stopped and like most people of a certain age, what was important to me then became of no

I think that pop music lost its direction. There are too many pop people who appear and then disappear without trace because of shows like X Factor and Britain´s got talent. Some of the knights of pop are back too. Paul McCartney has released a great new single and Cliff Richard has just finished recording a new album of rock and roll classics called The great Rock and Roll Songbook”. In an interview with the BBC, he was so excited about the project, Bless Him! Elton John is releasing a new album too, called “The Diving Board” ……. Oh! The joy of it all! Gloria Estefan is bringing out an album of standard songs. I love the woman. For

sorry, Pop, onto the market, just in time to rule the Christmas charts. Just when I thought that music was dead, it rears its fabulous head and drags me back into its spell! Hoorah!

I aM not sure what all the fuss is about! The african peoples have been shaking and thrusting in their tribal dances since time began. all of a sudden it has become fashionable to make a fool of yourself on the dance floor.

The dictionary defines twerking as “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” I might be missing something here, but those who do it look like they need some sort of medication. Miley Cyrus really managed to take it to new depths a couple of weeks ago. Some people may say that I am showing my age by criticizing twerking, but Harry Styles of 1 Direction has recently said that it promotes promiscuity, so I am right there with the young and trendy! If you are going to dance, what is wrong with doing the slosh!

felt that she had dumped me. I have never liked other kids. I didn’t want to play with them and they didn’t want to play with me.

I hid behind the blackboard and cried! The teacher seemed cold and heartless and I have never liked people who have no warmth in their souls. Many years later, when I started at grammar school, hiding behind the blackboard for a good cry wasn’t an option. I hated school I was picked on and bullied an awful lot and consequently failed more tests and exams than I passed. I have no regrets about the situation that I found myself in. It made me a stronger person. I never told anyone about the bullying and I just counted down the days and years until the end of my school life. Bullying is hard to detect if you have a strong willed child and, believe me, I am strong willed. These days I detest bullies of any kind

and I don’t stand -by when I see it going on. I won’t tolerate it. There are various groups across the country now that deal with bullying and it is dealt with severely at schools, however there is always going to be a certain amount of it. If you think that your child is being bullied in any way remember that all schools in the UK have to have an anti-bullying policy in place. Most children have been teased by another friend at some point. It’s not harmful when done in a playful, friendly, and mutual way, and both children find it funny. But when teasing becomes hurtful, unkind, and constant, it crosses the line into bullying and it needs to be stopped. Bullying is intentional tormenting in physical, verbal, or psycho-

logical ways. It can include hitting, shoving, name-calling, threats, and mocking to extorting money and items. Some children bully by shunning others and spreading rumours about them. Others use social media like facebook or twitter or text messaging to taunt or hurt other’s feelings. It’s important to take bullying seriously and not just brush it off as something that children have to deal with. The effects can be serious and affect their sense of safety and self-worth. In some cases, bullying has contributed to suicides and school shootings. Be vigilant about behaviour changes in your child. I dealt with my own bullying because I felt that it was my fault. As an adult, I know that it wasn’t my fault at all.

Salt mine added to Street View

GooGLE has added an 800-year-old salt mine - including its stunning cathedral carved from rock salt - to street View.

aCTor sir Patrick stewart broke the news to the world that had married his girlfriend sunny ozell, on Twitter. The 73-yearold, who starred as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in star Trek: The next Generation, posted a bizarre picture of him and his new wife in a colourful ball pit with the caption: “Yes, married.”

Apparently long-time friend and X-Men co-star Sir Ian McKellen, officiated at the ceremony. Sir Ian, who played Gandalf in the Lord Of The Rings, posted a photo on his official Facebook page showing him holding up a black T-shirt with “Minister” written on it.

In an interview with Jonathan Ross earlier this year, Sir Ian announced: “I am going to marry Patrick. Well, no, how else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding.’’ Asked if he was legally qualified to preside over the couple’s nuptials, he said: ‘’I don’t know. But in Massachusetts, or in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married.’’ He added: ‘’I’ve done it once before, with two guys having a civil partnership. I was crying my eyes out.’’ Sir Patrick and jazz singer Ozell, 35, met while he was performing Macbeth in New York and they have been together for five years. It is Sir Patricks third marriage and he has two children.

The 13th-century Wieliczka mine in southern Poland was photographed by Google as part of its Unesco World Heritage series and World Wonders Project. The mine, which was operational until 2007 when it had to close due to flooding and low salt prices, is adorned with intricate carvings and was made a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1978. It is over 178 miles long and reaches 327 metres below the surface. It features statues, three chapels, and a cathedral carved out of natural grey salt. Contemporary artists are occasionally invited to add new carvings at the underground site and now Google users can now explore the mine from the comfort of their own homes The mine joins other heritage sites, including the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia, the Grand Canyon in the US, and Stonehenge in the UK.

gardening and Nature By Steve Andrews - aka Green Bard

The Icod 1,000-year-old Dragon Tree has its own park In Icod de los Vinos there stands a very impressive tree known as the “Drago Milenario.” It is a dragon tree (Dracaena draco) and believed to be 1000-years old. It is also said to be the biggest and oldest surviving specimen of this tree anywhere. Some estimates have put its age as much as 3,000 but others have argued that in reality it is much less and possibly no more than 650. This can never be settled because dragon trees are actually not proper trees even though they look as if they are. They have no rings inside the trunks and counting these is the usual means of ascertaining the age of a specimen. With a dragon tree you have to count the branches and allow 10 years for a trunk that is around 1 metre in length to have grown that long. Dragon trees only fork after flowering and grow at a very slow rate. Sometimes they grow much taller than a metre before they flower but they never produce side shoots until after they have floweredBut while the debate goes on about how old the Drago Milenario actually is everyone agrees that it is a very ancient specimen and that it looks amazing. In many ways it is the main tourist attraction for Icod and parties of visitors to the island turn up to see it every day. Because of this mighty dragon tree’s fame it is not surprising that it has its very own park. The Parque del Drago is well worth visiting but to see the Drago Milenario up close though there is a small admittance fee. You don’t just get to see the mighty and ancient dragon tree though because there are a lot more interesting plant specimens and features in the park. There is a

Dragon trees in Parque del Drago collection of endemic trees, shrubs and wild plants and pathways to wander around as you find them Amongst the rarities is the stick of blood (Marcetella moquiniana) or “palo de sangre” as it is known in Spanish, and the white-flowered Echium simplex, a close relative of the red viper’s bugloss (E. wildpretii) that grows up on Mt Teide. This white bugloss species only grows wild in a few locations along the coast in the remote parts of the north of the island but it does well in Icod’s Parque del Drago too. It produces a tall flowering spike in spring and early summer and these flowers are always covered in bees. You can expect to see the strawberry tree (Arbutus canariensis) which has rough-skinned orangered fruit that could be likened to strawberries in their looks but certainly not their taste. This tree from the Ericacae or heather family has bark that peels away from the trunk. In the wild it grows on mountainsides and in the forest zone of Tenerife but is not often seen. There are large clumps of the Canary Island spurge (Euphorbia canariensis) which looks like acactus but is really a succulent, and speaking of succulents look out for the cardoncillo (Ceropegia fusca), another unusual endemic species. Parque del Drago usually has

Palo de Sangre

plenty of wildlife in the form of dragonflies, monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) and three types of reptile found in Tenerife. The Tenerife lizard (Gallottia galloti), the Tenerife gecko (Tarentola delalandii) and the skink (Chalcides viridanus) all live there. The geckos sometimes come out by day and bask in the stone walls, as do the skinks. The lizards are all over the place and you can’t miss the males with their bright blue spotted cheeks and green colouration on their backs. There is a pond with carp in it

and there are peacocks and peahens wandering around in the park. You never know what you going to come across next! One interesting feature of Parque del Drago are caves you can enter and see how the Guanche people once lived. These caverns are dimly lit and have displays of Guanche artefacts and remains. When you have finished wandering around the park there is café on the way out where you can have a cool drink and a snack and you might well enjoy having a look around the shop there that sells

The most well-known species of strawberry tree is known to botanists as Arbutus unedo. Unedo means “I eat one only,” according to Pliny the Elder, and is said to refer to the taste of the fruit that is so astringent you wouldn’t want to eat another.

Mediterranean region and one species (A. unedo) grows in Ireland. Although the fruit are not very enjoyable to eat they can be used to make jam and liqueurs. The Canary Islands strawberry tree is a protected species.

Facts about the Strawberry Tree

The strawberry tree is thought to be the “tree of golden apples” of Greek myths. Strawberry trees are native to some parts of Europe and the

all sorts from t-shirts with dragon trees or Guanche designs through to seeds and living plants. For people who don’t want to pay to see the Drago Milenario you can do this easily enough and for free. It can be viewed from the square looking over it and a section of the surrounding wall was removed to make this easier. Many people take photos there to help them remember their visit to Icod de los Vinos, which bills itself as La Cuidad del Drago that translates as “The City of the Dragon Tree.”


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.

No bigger than a Chihuahua, the cute 34cm tall automaton weighing just 1kg, broadcast a message from the International Space Station (ISS), greeting citizens of Earth and paying a cheeky tribute to Neil Armstrong: “On August 21, 2013, a robot took one small step toward a brighter future for all,” Kirobo said in a video as it drifted weightlessly on board the space station. The images were filmed two weeks ago but have only just been released, and their global debut was part of Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Olympics during a presentation ahead of a top-level meeting in Buenos Aires which will decide the host city. “Good morning to everyone on Earth. This is Kirobo. I am the world’s first talking robot astronaut. Nice to meet you,” it said in Japanese. Packaged into an insulated box, Kirobo - a name derived from the words Kibo, or ‘hope’ in Japanese, and Robot - blasted off aboard a cargocarrying rocket on August 4. He arrived at the ISS six days later and is scheduled to stay in space for about a year and a half, according to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). He is due to return to earth in December, 2014. Kirobo is programmed to communicate in Japanese and keep records of its con-

versations with Koichi Wakata, the first Japanese astronaut to command the ISS. However, other astronauts will not be able to interact with the visiting robot unless they speak Kirobo’s native tongue. Kirobo was developed by

Tokyo University, Toyota Motor Corporation, advertising agency Dentsu and Robo Garage. The robot is part of a study aimed at seeing how a non-human companion can provide emotional support for people isolated over long periods.

pugh´s pantry


By Barry Pugh

Toad in the Hole

Ingredients: 225g plain flour Salt and black pepper 3 large eggs 300ml milk 2 tbsp. olive oil 8 sausages


Firstly make the batter: sieve the flour into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Make a well in the middle and break in the eggs. Whisk the eggs slowly into the flour. Once combined, pour in the milk while you whisk so that you have a smooth, lump-free batter the consistency of double cream (if the batter is too thick then add a little water). Cover the batter and rest in the fridge for one hour. Preheat the oven to 200°C and then put a roasting tray into the preheated oven. Once really hot, add the olive oil and the sausages. Brown the sausages in the hot oven, turning now and again until coloured on all sides (don’t cook them through).Whisk the rested batter and pour it into the hot tin over the browned sausages. Return to the oven and cook for a further 30-35 minutes, or until the batter is risen and golden-brown all over. Serve it with a rich onion gravy and Garlic cabbage (see additional recipe) …. So simple, easy and delicious!

Garlic Cabbage Ingredients: 1 cabbage, shredded, core discarded ½ tbsp. olive oil 2 garlic, peeled and finely chopped

Southern Fried Onion Wedge Flower!

Here’s something different. A great nibble for party food, starter to share or just something quirky to put as a tea-time treat.. Ingredients:

680ml beer 4 good sized onions

The batter for the onion: 45g corn flour 200g plain flour 2 teaspoons garlic, minced 2 teaspoons paprika 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper

The Seasoned flour: 250g flour 4 teaspoons paprika 2 teaspoons garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne


Method: Wilt the shredded cabbage in a high sided frying pan or shallow saucepan with 3-4 tablespoons of water over a medium high heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the cabbage is tender pour off any excess water and then add the oil to the pan along with the garlic. Fry over a medium high heat for 2-3 minutes, or until the garlic is softened and aromatic. Season the cabbage with salt and pepper and keep warm.

Firstly make the seasoned flour; combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, pepper and cayenne-mix well. Next make the batter. Mix corn flour, flour and seasonings until well blended. Add beer and mix well. Take the onions and cut about 3/4 inch off top of onion and peel. Cut into onion 12-16 vertical wedges but do not cut through bottom root end. Remove about 1 inch of petals from centre of onion (You can place the cut onions in cold water for a few hours to help “open” them up -- just make sure that you drain them well). Dip in seasoned flour and gently shake to remove excess. Separate the petals to coat them thoroughly with batter. Gently place in a deep fryer at 180°C for 1 1/2 minutes. Turnover and fry for another 1 1/2 minutes more or until golden brown. If you have any leftover seasoned flour and batter – coat some chicken breasts in it then deep fry it for a lovely southern fried chicken coating! Serve with some sour cream to dip the petals into.

There are some great classic recipes that you just can’t beat. Toad in the hole being just one of them. There are a lot of variations to it, and I’m going to share this wonderful hearty, traditional English recipe with you. Use any sausages you preferthe tastier the better. Be adventurous and use some juicy pork and leek or even succulent lamb and mint works a treat! Even more – wrap the sausage in some streaky bacon before you put them into the oven for that extra Smokey flavour! For the vegetarians out there, swap the sausages for a good quality vegetarian sausage!

eu Bid to fit Cars toyota to Launch With Speed Limiters Hydrogen Vehicle

ThE European Commission might force motor manufacturers to install a system that prevents speeding. Why? Because thirty-thousand people die every year on European roads and onehundred and twenty thousand become disabled.

It is thought that enforcing the limit more rigorously might reduce these figures. The system could work in one of two ways. Firstly, a vehicle – that identifies its position on the road via GPS – would receive a satellite signal that confirms the speed limit. GPS, of course, is already fitted to cars that have sat-nav. Option two is to install a forward-facing camera that

monitors the road signs, e.g. speed limit thirty miles perhour. The Intelligent Speed Adaptation system might then have three options for influencing speed. The first could be Advice Mode that tells the driver he/she is travelling to fast via a beep or flashing light. The motorist could then

morgan plus 4

choose to slow down. Select Mode, in contrast, would stop the car speeding by cutting engine power and/ or braking. However, this could be overridden if necessary. In contrast, Mandatory Mode would prevent the car exceeding the limit under all circumstances – no exceptions.

(1950 - 1970)

BYE BYE petrol. Farewell diesel. Toyota plans to launch a hydrogen powered, zero emission, car in Europe, the Usa and Japan by 2015. Why?

Because the manufacturer believes this fuel “offers the best solution to the challenges of energy sources and emissions”. This potentially revolutionary four-door saloon – which has not yet been named – will be based on Toyota’s FCV-R Concept as seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013. This, in turn, is an evolution of the hydrogen concept that was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show 2011. Furthermore, Toyota expects to produce tens of thousands of hydrogen vehicles during the 2020s that emit water vapour rather than hazardous pollutants. The FCV-R Concept vehicle is 4,745mm long, 1,510mm tall, and 1,790mm wide which is similar to a new Toyota Avensis Saloon. Furthermore, as

most of the hydrogen parts are fitted beneath the floor it has similar passenger/ cargo space as a traditional car of comparable proportions. More importantly – and unlike zero emission battery powered vehicles - it has a maximum range of about 420 miles in test conditions. However, it remains to be seen how efficient the production model will be on a real road.

How Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles Work A hydrogen-powered vehicle – much like the more common alternatives – stores its fuel in a tank. In fact, the Toy-

ota FCV-R Concept has two high-pressure tanks. This hydrogen is propelled through a fuel cell where it is mixed with oxygen ions. As the oxygen is negatively charged the hydrogen becomes positive so they bind together. This process releases electrons (electricity) which powers the vehicle’s electric motor. In turn, this spins the wheels and fuels secondary systems such as the radio, aircon, sat-nav, etc. But there is a problem. In 2015 Toyota might launch the best hydrogen car in the world. It might be supremely refined, environmentally friendly, and affordable - but where can motorists refuel? To sell in meaningful numbers, this workhorse must be supported by a nationwide network of outlets which is unlikely to be in place by 2015. It could, in fact, be many years before purchasing hydrogen is as easy as petrol/diesel. Hydrogen technology is (most likely) the best way to power cars in the future - but the everyday driver might have to wait some time before it is a practical buy. Hello petrol, hello diesel.

ThE Morgan Plus 4 added a further dimension to the standard 4/4, by giving it room for four. It had a four-inch stretch to its wheelbase, making room for that second row of seats. It was a wise move for the Malvern carmaker, as it opened up the appeal of these vintage sports cars to those with small families.

It was still clearly a 1930’s sports car, but throughout the years, it received updates

and upgrades as the cars that donated their engines and gearboxes evolved. A move to hydraulically assisted brakes was a welcome move, as was the lightly restyled front end, which is still in place pretty much unchanged into the 21st century. During its 19-year run, it went through a 2.1-litre Standard Vanguard engine before moving to a Triumph TR2 engine. Front disc brakes were finally fitted as standard in 1961, which was a good thing, as the final TR4 engined models were genuine 100mph cars.

Crime Thriller Club ITV 1 - 21:00 - 22:00 Bradley Walsh presents this new sixpart studio-based show celebrating the very best of crime fiction and television with high-profile guests, quizzes, bluffer’s guides and peeks behind the scenes of popular dramas.

Culminating in the glittering Crime Thriller Awards 2013 in October at the Grosvenor House Hotel, the series gets exclusive access to the stars and sets of some of Britain’s best known crime thriller programmes like Bletchley Circle, Silent Witness and Midsomer Murders.


Each week the programme gives viewers a bluffer’s guide with a short run-down of the key features of a popular crime drama - from Scott and Bailey to Foyle’s War. A book of the week is featured, focusing on high-profile authors such as Linwood Barclay and up-and coming names like Diana Bretherick. Living legends of the crime writing genre are also profiled, including Martina Cole, Patricia Cornwell and Wilbur Smith. Finally, the studio guest and viewers are encouraged to take part in a quiz on a popular crime programme - from Sherlock to Inspector Morse.

Father Figure - The Apology Editor Recommends BBC 1 - 22:35 - 23:05

Created, written by, and starring comedian Jason Byrne, new BBC one sitcom Father Figure follows the everyday chaos of the Whyte family.

Jason Byrne plays family man Tom Whyte – a man who tries to be the best dad he can to his two sons while his wife works full time. He’s the kind of dad all kids would want and the kind of dad that all men would secretly like to be. In the first episode of the series Tom Whyte invites his timid neighbours Helen and Brendan over for a relaxed dinner party to say sorry, after previously causing them minor injuries in a disastrous

incident with the barbecue. But, chaos is never far away where Tom is concerned and his family are convinced things will go horribly wrong with him at the helm. With the arrival of best friend Roddy, who brings along his own interpretation of dessert much to Tom’s dismay, and his parents unexpectedly descending on the house, Tom feels that the whole world is conspiring against him getting the meal ready in time.

masseur Saves the day

a FooTBaLL team’s masseur caused chaos as he ran on to the pitch and saved a certain goal to secure his team a place in the play-off semi-final of Brazil’s fourth division.

The Aparecidence employee sneaked on to the field with the score locked at 2-2 and opponents Tupi looking sure to score a last-minute winner. He appeared to prevent two goal-bound shots crossing the line, before clearing the ball from danger. Match officials apparently took no action and the masseur could be seen running away as furious Tupi players

aimed kicks at him, before he escaped through a door into the stands. His team look set to benefit from his intervention, as the rules mean they go through to the semi-finals despite the 2-2 draw because they were the away team. But local media reported that Tupi officials planned to take the matter to court in an effort to get the result overturned.

messi makes tax payment

a sPanIsh court has turned down a request by the state agency for Tax administration to set bail for Lionel Messi and his father in a case of alleged tax fraud after ruling that a payment made satisfied the case’s legal requirements.

A Catalan court said a payment of more than 5 million euros made by Jorge Horacio Messi, the Barcelona star’s father, made it unlikely that either Messi or his father would withhold funds “during the legal process of a pending tax fraud trial.” The court statement said

Messi’s father made the payment, which was intended to cover alleged taxes outstanding plus interest, on August 14. The complaint, originally lodged by Raquel Amado, a state prosecutor for the north eastern region of Catalonia, alleged Messi tried to conceal the extent of his earnings and that he owed 4 million euros in back taxes. “Given the global impact of professional footballer Lionel Andres Messi Cuccittini, and therefore his solvency,” and the payment of 5,016,542.27 euros, an amount “the tax agency deems appropriate,” the court threw out the bail request, the ruling said. The court also said it was


aBrIEL agbonlahor has apologised to one Direction’s Louis Tomlinson after his tackle saw the boy band star limp away from a charity football match before throwing up.

Hundreds of fans left angry messages on social media following the challenge at Glasgow’s Celtic Park, with Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor receiving a number of death threats. But the forward played the incident down, saying: “It was one of those things. I’ll apologise to Louis when we meet up with everybody after the game. I know he enjoyed playing in the game and it’s fantastic that he took time out to be here, and the same with everyone else who played.” The game was organised to raise money for a foundation set up by former player Stiliyan Petrov, who retired from the game after a year-long battle with leukaemia while he was at Premier League side Villa. A crowd of around 60,000 watched as a Celtic XI lost 5-3 to a Stiliyan Petrov XI. Ticket sales for the game received a boost when it was announced that Tomlinson, 21, was taking part. When the pop star came on as a substitute for the Celtic XI thousands of young fans cheered, but many of the older fans in the stadium booed. His appearance ended prematurely though when he appeared to injure his knee after a shoulder barge from Agbonlahor. Tomlinson could be seen waving to fans as left the pitch, before vomiting as he made it to the touchline. His manager for the day, Martin O’Neill, said: “Agbonlahor smashed into him and he picked himself up and then was ill in the dressing room area, but he’s not too bad now I think. He had to rush off but I think he’s fine, he doesn’t know where he is but he’s fine. He was genuinely ill but he’s okay now.” Many One Direction fans reacted with fury on Twitter and Aston Villa player

considering a request made by one of Messi’s lawyers to postpone a court hearing set for September 17. It said a ruling on a possible postponement would be announced soon. Messi and his father are accused of allegedly defrauding the tax agency of income tax returns in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Messi, who is rated by Forbes as the world’s 10th highest-paid athlete, the 25-year-old Messi has won four straight world player of the year awards. Spain has been cracking down on tax evasion as it fights to repair the country’s public finances amid a prolonged recession and the collapse of its once-booming real estate sector. Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro warned footballers they should make sure they are “comfortable” with their tax affairs. Former Portugal star Luis Figo was last year forced to pay 2.45 million euros in income tax from his time at Barcelona. The tax authorities said the money was due from the 1997-99 period and related to his image rights.

agbonlahor: death threats

Agbonlahor received a torrent of abuse on the social media site. Other celebrities including comedian John Bishop and Westlife singer Nicky Byrne also joined in. Kenny Dalglish, who was in charge of the Petrov XI, said: “The support he (Petrov) has had, first and foremost from his family, but also from the footballing family, at Aston Villa and Celtic, has been unbelievable. The turnout was fantastic and a fitting tribute to a really

brave man. He is an inspiration for what he has gone through. He never moaned or complained, he tried his best to get through it. He is a man of tremendous courage and determination and I just hope that it pays off.” In August Tomlinson signed as a noncontract player for his beloved Championship side Doncaster Rovers. He tweeted that his first game for the team is on September 18.

domenicali Says Hiring Kimi is not an ‘anti-fernando’ Choice

sTEFano Domenicali says hiring Kimi raikkonen is not an “anti-alonso” choice and that both drivers will have equal opportunity at Ferrari.

Fernando Alonso is currently the undisputed number one at the Scuderia and some in the paddock have questioned how he will respond to having a strong team-mate alongside him following Raikkonen’s appointment. In 2007, Alonso’s relationship with Lewis Hamilton infamously boiled over at McLaren, but Domenicali says anyone expecting a repeat in 2014 are clutching at straws. F1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart says Kimi Raikkonen’s arrival at Ferrari will make Fernando Alonso uncomfortable. “It brings to mind football fans who are scared of rival teams because they have so many strong forwards and so they hope they will fight each other for the ball,” the Team Principal told Ferrari’s official website. “For anyone thinking that the choice of Kimi is somehow an anti-Alonso choice, I can put their minds at rest: at Ferrari, everyone knows the interests of the team come first and only then those of the individual.

“Fernando is a key asset for this team and he will be for a long time. I’m sure he is the first to be happy with a choice made to strengthen the group, because he is too intelligent not to realise that a stronger team can only be an advantage.” Domenicali insists both drivers will be given equal opportunity to challenge for the title in 2014 until one has a clear advantage. “Nothing will change in the way the team is run,” he added. Damon Hill says Kimi Raikkonen’s arrival at Ferrari could spell an end Red Bull’s dominance in the constructors’ championship. “Since the world began, our drivers have always started on equal terms. It’s always been that way and always will. Then, during the course of the season, if the situation is such that one driver can help the other based on the points table, it’s logical and right that it should happen. “It’s happened in the past and will happen in the future, as all drivers who have driven a Ferrari have demonstrated. It occurred at the time of [Juan Manuel] Fangio and [Peter] Collins and more recently with [Mika] Salo and [Eddie] Irvine, when the Finn gave up on his only chance of a win in Formula 1 to help his team-

Pavey Announces Baby Continued From Daughter’s Arrival Back Page

Olympian Jo Pavey has announced the birth to her second child, a daughter called Emily.

The distance runner Tweeted: ‘Very pleased to announce that baby Emily was born on Wednesday morning in Exeter. She is doing well and we’re all really happy.’ Jo and her husband, Gavin, who is also her athletics coach, already have a son, Jacob, three. Jo is a Commonwealth and European silver medallist over 5k and 10k respectively and has represented Great Britain at four Olympic Games, Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London. Last year at the home games she was the first European in the 5k and 10k, finishing both races in 7th place and setting a personal best time in the 10k of 30.53. She

had also achieved the qualifying time for the marathon after running a pb of 2.28 in New York in 2011. Jo who will shortly be celebrating her 40th birthday, said when announcing that she was expecting her second child, she had no intention of retiring from the international running scene. She hopes to return to form in time to compete in the European Championships in 2014 and then the Rio Olympics in 2016: ‘It will be very special if I can make the Rio Games. I’ll be getting older, but have been very encouraged to continue after running a pb in the 10k at the London Olympics.’ Jo continued to run throughout her pregnancy and blogged about her progress. She wrote: ‘My volume has dropped from over 100

miles per week down to 20 or so miles per week. The pace I’m running at has significantly fallen too. I wear a heart rate monitor and keep below about 140 beats per minute. I’m not actually interested in running fast, it’s about running a safe pace.’ She added that she always listened to her body and put her baby first - never running if she felt too tired. She also said she kept ‘very busy with conditioning work to help make the post pregnancy return to running go as smoothly as possible.’ Athletes are recommended to have at least six to eight weeks rest after giving birth before returning gradually to training. Jo has said she will ease back into training sensibly to avoid injury and allow her to enjoy being a new mother again: ‘My long career has probably been made possible by building my training very slowly and carefully but also because my coach sets schedules that closely correlate to the level of conditioning completed.’ She added: ‘Some people have been surprised that I have the motivation to want to continue running at international level but you are a long time retired and I simply love running. Ironically it also gives me more time with my family as I essentially work from home.’ The Olympian said motherhood has increased her desire to do well in sport as well as lead a ‘balanced’ life: ‘Having Jacob has boosted my motivation and underpins my continued enjoyment of the sport. He really has helped to give me a balanced life. When everything is very tense or serious you can count on a three year old to lighten things up!’

Nadal now sits third in the list of most Grand Slam singles titles won with 13 to his name, one behind American Pete Sampras and four short of Roger Federer’s record tally of 17 - while Djokovic has triumphed in six Grand Slams.

Rusedski says he has no doubt that the Spaniard will overhaul Federer’s haul so long as he is able to stay fit: “Nadal is now just four titles behind the great Roger Federer and I think he can catch him and break all records the way he is playing at the moment,” he insisted. “I hate to say it but think Federer’s best is behind him. I think it is about the top three now - Murray, Djokovic and mate, as Raikkonen was helped by Felipe [Massa], before repaying the compliment and again with Felipe and Fernando. “As for the Dream Team, I’m not in the habit of dreaming with my eyes open, as it’s not in my nature to do so. I would only say that the combination of Fernando and Kimi is the best one could have today in Formula 1, in terms of talent, experience, competitive spirit and the ability to move car development forward.” Pundits agree that the time had come for Ferrari to make a change to their driver line-up and now suspect that Felipe Massa’s hopes of continuing his Formula 1 career realistically rest with either Lotus or Sauber. After months of speculation over whether or not Ferrari would hand the long-serving Massa a further contract extension for 2014, the Brazilian himself announced via social media on Tuesday night that his eight-year stay at Maranello would come to an end after the season-ending round at his home circuit of Interlagos.

Nadal. Nadal right now is ‘Superman’ and I see him breaking the record if he stays healthy. He’s too good. No-one’s beaten him at the French Open in a long time - he’s 59-1 there, the only person to beat him being Roger Soderling - so you’ve got to give him that title next year. “If he continues like this on the hardcourts, watch out Down Under at the start of the year. I think the record is going to be broken.” Becker added: “I thought Roger’s record would never be broken but the man from Spain is getting awfully close. The more he plays and puts on shows like tonight, the closer he’s going to get. If Nadal stays healthy until he’s 30 he’s going to get to 17.” Ferrari are poised to confirm Kimi Raikkonen as his replacement. Having first signed a contract with Ferrari as long ago as 2001 when a rising star in the junior categories, Massa has gone on to become the second-longest serving driver in their history with his final race for them in Brazil set to be his 139th start in red. And although sorry to see the popular Brazilian’s Ferrari career come to an end, Martin Brundle thinks the Maranello hierarchy have got the timing right. ”I am sad because he is a friend of mine and I like him,” Brundle said. “He has had tough time and things haven’t always worked out for him from having the title in his hands for a few seconds in 2008 to getting hit on the head by a piece of sprint in 2009 that set him back heavily. “But Ferrari had to make a change frankly and if they had continued with the same pairing again it would have looked weak appeared as if they had run out of ideas.”

the SpOrtS SCene By Colin Kirby

ThE good news is CD Tenerife have started scoring goals again, the bad news is the defence has sprung a leak. a 2-2 home draw against a skilful but cynical Barcelona B side showed improvement but a suicidal four minutes just after half time meant a share of the points.

All hail Aridane, the striker was back in the starting line up and soon showed his worth with strength and unselfish play for his team mates. Suso and Rivero both tested the away goalie in the opening minutes as Tenerife looked the better side. Nieto set the tone for Barcelona, sprawling on the floor at the slightest brush, he had a couple of good scoring chances but his mind seemed to be on his next dance moves. Aridane pounced on a defensive lapse by Bagnack and tried to chip the goalie, good

thinking and he wasn’t far off target. Suso was in determined mood and forced a low save out of Masip, at the other end Sergio Aragoneses was hardly troubled as Barcelona’s few attacks floundered on the home defence. Finally after 37 minutes the Tenerife drought broke, Loro flighted his free kick beautifully over the defence and clear of the keeper to ignite the 10,129 crowd. Still the theatrics kept coming and the referee bought it every time, Espinosa’s over reaction to a tackle by Aitor Sanz got the Tenerife player a ludicrous booking, at this stage Barcelona were producing more rolls

aridane goal that the local bakery. That should have been the start of great things but Tenerife were caught flat footed as the second half began, Espinosa ran through a bunch of five home players to plant the ball in the net. The defence barely had time to blame each other before they left the back post unguarded and Roman was able to feed Nieto for a simple tap in and a 1-2 lead. Coach Alvaro Cervera made changes adding Ricardo and Aday Benitez in place of the below par Cristo and Sanz. Moyano was making some strong runs from right back and nearly surprised the keeper with a crisp shot. Ayoze came on and provided the spark to grab a leveler, his pass

ThE serious work of shifting a few extra summer pounds has started for CB Canarias basketball team. The new kit has been unveiled and they are venturing down from La Laguna for a friendly against Frankfurt skyliners. Austral are the new kit suppliers, the players showed off the new gear hoping to make it Tu Segunda Piel (your second skin) and gave it a good airing with a testing walk up in Punta de Hidalgo. Next Friday 20 September they will be enticing southern basketball fans when they take on Frankfurt from the German league at Las Rosas sports centre in Adeje. The game starts at 9pm and all tickets are a mere three euros, the sports centre is just to the west of Adeje old town.

Moyano breaks was expertly chested under control by Aridane before he side stepped his marker and scored a classy goal. Ayoze still hasn’t found the clinical finishing we have all been hoping for, he passed up

two chances, one spun wide as he hit the ball on the turn and the other bounced away off a defenders leg. There was still time for a winner but it nearly fell to Barcelona, Tenerife’s far post was wide open again

as a forward raced through, Llorente did well to get back and put in a winning tackle to save the draw. On Saturday it’s Zaragoza away, a win against the fellow strugglers would be the perfect return.

Cup Curse Continues

ThErE are not many certainties in life but CD Tenerife (and all the other Canarian teams) getting drawn away in the Copa del rey and falling at the first hurdle is still a sound bet. on Wednesday night Eibar won 1-0 to take Tenerife’s run of early exits to five straight seasons.

Tenerife dominated the first half and the Eibar goal after 53 minutes was their first clear chance of the game. Jota had the initial shot, back up goalie Roberto made the save but Urko Vera netted on the rebound. The good news for the losers was the return of injured midfield inspiration Inigo Ros from the bench in the 65th minute.

Strewth, It’s The Water Wizards Of Aus

Howzat for style, a wave of Australians dominated the opening days of the World Waterski Racing Championships in Puerto Colon and by Wednesday had won four of the six titles on offer. Wayne Mawer won the Open Men category for the third time and Trudi Stout added the Open Women crown to her World Junior title of 2007. Jack Harrison weighed in with the Junior Boys top spot and Rachel Stapleton headed the field for the Junior Girls. There’s plenty of action left in this championship on Saturday as the racers try to keep Australia from a whitewash by taking the F2 Men and F2 Women categories.

Like a colony of Rock Hopper penguins the crowd swelled forward from the harbour wall and perched on the boulders that add their protective embrace to Puerto Colon marina. With a deep throaty roar the engines of over 30 super charged speed boats leapt forward at the far marker bouys as their skiers balanced expertly on the taut ropes behind. It was quite a sight as the 2013 World Waterski Racing Championships got

underway on Saturday morning. The women were first up and Trudi Stout of Australia won the Open Womens race, completing the 15 laps in 48 minutes at an average of 80 km per hour. Strengthening the early Aussie marker, team mate Sarah Teelow grabbed the Womens F2 race and Ellen Jones won the Girls junior race, Mitchell Horan made sure the winning run didn’t move too far as the New Zealander took the Boys junior race just ahead of GB’s Ben Manchett. The mens races saw the same flag being raised in triumph, Jake

Tegart won the F2 Wayne Mawer was untouchable in the F1 race. With such a competitive field there were a few spills, Australia’s Whitenoiz ground to a technical halt and had to be towed off the course, and then on Monday Spain’s Forever Novelero suffered a similar fate and limped out of the F1 Mens race. The biggest scare of the day came from GB’s Harvey Robinson skiing behind On The Pull, he came adrift and needed an ambulance and overnight hospital stay for bruised vertebrae and that was the end of his Tenerife racing. As soon as

CD Marino Blast Their Way To The Top

It’s early days but new coach Sosa Espinel must be pleased with the progress of his young troops, three games in and they stand proud at the top of their Tercera Division group after a 4-1 demolition of CD Vera.

There were a couple of changes from the previous weeks 1-0 home win, Matias took over in goal from Alberto and last seasons striker Balduino changed from substitute to starter. It was a confident start with Eslava finding the net after just 12 minutes as Marino took control, Balduino doubled the lead on 39 minutes and a relaxed half time break was on the cards. Vera weren’t ready to give up and Levis pulled a goal back just before the ref blew for the end of the half. Last seasons Marino team had a few defensive collapses but they are made of sterner stuff this time and Balduino showed he will again be a threat this season by adding his second strike within a minute of the restart. The outcome was never in doubt after that but just to make sure Murci nabbed his first goal of the season ten minutes from the end. This Sundays game will show how far the new look team has come as they travel up to Santa Cruz to play CD Tenerife B at their Geneto training ground where they will be up against British former blue Jordan McCourt.

Trudi Stout Open Winner a skier was down the safety flags went up so boats could avoid them but bobbing about in the water as powerful boats screech past must be scary stuff. Monday was an Australian wipeout with Ben Gulley winning the Mens F2, Jack Harrison and Rachel Stapleton topping the Junior categories while Sarah Teelow, Trudi Stout, and Wayne Mawer continued their relentless march to glory. As titles were sealed on Wednesday the crowd grew even bigger, well the racing was superb and it all ticked along nicely even with so many crews to look after. The loading area where the crane lowered and raised the speed boats was a popular focal

Wayne Mawer champers point, up on the harbour wall supporters formed their own little pockets of fanatical encouragement and down in the pits all the nationalities were mingling and swapping banter. The skiers had a good way to cool down in the scorching conditions, after races they took ice baths in wheelie bins, the idea being one minute in and one minute out, repeated five times on the trot. It may be good for the muscles but the crowds were happy to settle for cold mojitos at the bar overlooking the race area. So who can stop the Australians? Don’t miss the final thrilling instalment on Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

aFaEL nadal’s Us open victory caps the greatest comeback in sport, according to Greg rusedski. nadal, 27 claimed his 10th title since returning from seven months out with a knee injury by beating World no 1 novak Djokovic 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the final at Flushing Meadows.

The win earned Nadal his second US Open title and second Grand Slam success of the season after victory at the French Open and also extended the Spaniard’s unbeaten run on hardcourts to 22 matches. “They call him the ‘King of Clay’ but he’s the ‘King of Hardcourts’ now,” said former British No 1 Rusedski. “This is probably the greatest comeback I have ever seen in sport. He didn’t play in the Australian Open and he lost in the first round of Wimbledon so it’s a massive leap to get to this point. There’s no question who is the number one player on the planet right now. “Yes, Djokovic will still be number one in the rankings but in all of the players’ minds right now - especially after two Grand Slam victories from Rafa - he really is the World No 1 right now. Boris Becker, who won the US Open in 1989, was also in awe of what he had watched: “The second and third sets produced some of the best tennis I’ve ever seen in my life - and I’ve seen a lot of tennis,” said Becker.
