First case of E.Coli in Tenerife

The Canarian Health Authority has confirmed that a German woman has received treatment on the island after suffering with symptoms of Europe-wide E.Coli infection. The woman, a resident of Hamburg, is said to be recovering well after what doctor’s describe as a minor infection. She has now been released from hospital. However, The European Epidemiological Vigilence System has been notified and samples have been taken from them for analysis. Although it had been initially confirmed as E Coli, the Centro Nacional de Microbiología, have only now (at time of going to press) confirmed that it is the O104 H4 strain as in the German outbreak. Germany have as yet been unable to locate the source of the fatal outbreak of E Coli. Continued on page 3

June 10th - June 16th 2011

THIS WEEK This has been a hectic time for us here at Tenerife Weekly & Coast FM. In the few weeks that we’ve been going to press there have been so many news-worthy stories happening in Tenerife and the world as a whole. During the production of our first issue we covered the tragic news of the beheading in Los Cristianos. Although making certain we had all the facts of the case and being sure to report the facts in a sensitive manner, we had no idea how our slant on the story would reach far-away shores. Two of my colleagues were invited to broadcast interviews for BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, Real Radio, and LBC (THE biggest news station in the UK.) This – all within the first week’s issue! In fact we are now the first port of call for these news agencies regarding all that’s Tenerife. That’s a big honour and a huge responsibility, so we know we have to keeps the standards high. Luckily, we thrive on nervous tension, coffee and Pro Plus! To be honest, if there ever were such a thing as a “no news week” (which doesn’t exist, anyway) I would not be in this business. News is a living, breathing beast and being alert and on your toes is the best way to avoid being bitten on the backside. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our many

readers and listeners. We have had some amazing feedback from you the vast majority of which was very positive and encouraging. To those that had a criticism of anything in the publication, you will see that we’ve listened to you: updating the format and tweaking the aesthetic details until it’s just right. On another note: It has been reported that a German tourist (here in Tenerife) may be infected with the strain of E. Coli virus that’s been ravaging Germany and Sweden for the last few weeks. At the time of going to press the results of tests on him are still pending. We can only hope that the tests come back negative, not just for this poor soul, but because a confirmed case in Tenerife could do even more damage to an already fragile tourist industry here. The BBC recently reported that “The News of the World owners have formally apologised in court to the actress Sienna Miller for hacking her mobile phones.” Now, I know that investigative journalism can be a two-edged sword – we all like to see celebrities’ dirty laundry flapping in the wind, but this type of journalism can really give our industry a bad name. The way I look at it is: a good newspaper will report (as accurately as possible) the events worthy of note, but not spend their time creating news for their own purpose or just to be sensationalistic.

ARONA COUNCIL CLOSES TEN BEL FLEA MARKET

ARONA Council proceeded to close the Las Galletas Market located in the private square next to Ten Bel Urbanization for not having a licence and after complaints by The Arona Business Association.

Although the tenants have applied for a license on the 31st of May, the council has stopped this activity until the paperwork is processed. The Council also argues that the market lacks a risk assessment plan and that none has been presented. The affected merchants protest that they comply with all the security and health conditions (there are security personnel,

fire extinguishers, and a toilet) and don’t understand why the market has been closed down. “It benefits more than not” they said. “We have requested permission and think this situation is unjust” “I ask myself if any of the other markets are legal and whether there is a Municipal regulating body for this matter”, They added. In principle, the regulation is the same for any commercial activity that is carried out in a private space, i.e. a license and project are needed taking into account the nuance of each business. There is a process to obtain the permits and it is subject to a business meeting certain criteria. The bad thing is that it is a slow process. Normally, li-

censes take time; even years to be granted and anything from cafés to flea markets that meet the criteria can trade on the proviso that they accept the time it takes for the permit to be processed. “If the business complies with the regulation a license will be granted”, explains Manuel Reveron, spokesman for the Local police. Street markets are not permitted in public areas according to the Arona General Plan, however, a new urban document (publication of updated bylaws) not yet made public, regulates the use of public spaces for this purpose. The Council has clarified that it is not against small businesses but only applying the law.

THE RED CROSS HELPS TO FEED 19,000 CANARIANS.

THE Red Cross has been providing food for the less favoured people in the Canaries for over a decade, and this year 1,500,000kg of food will be distributed throughout the archipelago. The initiative, structured in three parts, began yesterday in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where 505,505kg of different products will be distributed. The Red Cross gives away a variety of foodstuffs, from dairy products and biscuits to rice and pasta. “At this time of economic crisis it is important to help families with low incomes” The Food coordinator of the Canarian Red Cross, Eduardo

Palenzuela, said that more companies are joining and collaborating with the effort, which translates in a higher number of products being donated compared to last year. This organisation’s solidarity is being complemented by the help of 53 charities that located in the four islands of the province. Of the total participants, 11 are local Red Cross assemblies; 12 correspond to entities and associations and 30 to local councils. The goods come from the European Union Food

Mountain and it is managed by the “Ministerio de Medio ambiente y Medio Rural y Marino” through the Spanish Agricultural Warranty Fund. In particular, the delivery of products is carried out by The Spanish Red Cross and The Spanish Food Bank Federation. The Red Cross is also organising a charity “fiesta” next Saturday in Las Lagunetas (La Laguna). The aim is to raise funds and purchase essential equipment required by the actual social demand in the Tenerife Province.

VAGRANTS DISTURB THE 15M CAMP IN SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE

THE “indignant” complained that some vagrants they have been feeding started to caused problems and they suspect that they have been sent by “someone” to disturb the peace. The “indignant” of the 15M movement have welcomed many vagrants in the last few days. At least an average of 20 people attended the different food shifts organised at the La Candelaria Square in Santa Cruz. “At first there were just a few of them, but little by little and by word of mouth, more and more people arrived every day to ask for food”, explained Oscar Negrin, one of the people camping. He himself

www.tenerifeweekly.es

and some of his colleges have been feeding the vagrants. He thinks, like the rest of the people there, that he is not qualified to attend anyone from this group of people, especially those with mental problems or

who are handicapped. In fact, throughout this week they have suffered more than one dispute of some degree, because these people have not respected the queues to obtain food, for example, or alterca-

tions caused by someone with psychological problems. Despite the incommodity of this situation they will continue helping when possible. They see themselves as a solidarity-based group, so they consider helping

others a moral obligation. In general terms, the camp offers breakfast; lunch and dinner although mid afternoon snacks are sometimes given. “The number of vagrants is not fixed, but varies according to time and day”, explained Negrin. In a statement given by the 15M media committee they argue that they have even thought that these people are being used “to disturb the internal peace of

the protest”. In fact, they affirm in the same document that, “more than one person has said that they were given 50 euros just to attend”

Pay Up Before You Fill Up SEVERAL petrol stations on the Island are now insisting on pre-payment before allowing customers to ‘fill up’. Garage operators estimate an average loss of 3000 Euros every month, as driv-

ers fail to pay for the fuel they have taken. A staff member from a local Cepsa station told Canarian television that security cameras were no longer an effective deterrant , as the practice known as ‘sinpa’ which trans-

lates as leave without paying is considered a civil matter of non payment, a day in court to recover 30 Euros is not cost effective. However 30 euros of fuel several times a day, adds up to substantial losses.

Residents evacuated following Güímar landslide RESIDENTS from 20 houses in Güímar were evacuated from their homes last Sunday following a landslide, with another 7 residents having to leave on Tuesday.

The incident completely destroyed one house and car, but there were no reports of casualties with the exception of mild shock. Those evacuated have

Government may consider keeping Spain’s 110kph speed limit in place for longer

THE lower 110 kph speed limit introduced on Spanish roads has brought ‘enormous’ savings the Industry Minister has said, and the government has not ruled out extending the measure further into the summer. It is initially due to remain in place until June 30, but Minister Miguel Sebastián said the savings made on fuel consumption have surpassed the 3% forecast and are now at around 5%. The measure was brought in to reduce Spain’s energy bill with the rising prices from oil producing countries. The Minister said on Monday

Page 8

that oil prices are currently ‘good’, which would be an argument to return the speed to 120 kph, but noted that the ‘savings are proving enormous’. The government will weigh up the pros and contras on making its decision, he said. The government made savings of 94.2 million € in fuel imports in March after the new speed limit came into effect. April saw a 4.1% reduction in petrol consumption and 3.7% in automotive diesels. It has been noted that Miguel Sebastián has said previously that more

than one billion euros would be saved if the measure was kept in place for a year.

Ash Cloud Gone But Not Forgotten

With last years major travel disruptions caused by Icelandic Volcanic eruptions and this years ash cloud bringing back memories, it seems

British holidaymakers are worried again about their holiday plans. The majority of Brits who intend to change their plans say they will avoid flying and holiday in the UK instead , or at least leave it to the last minute to book a holiday.

Take a stroll into Tenerife’s beauty Dear readers, this week we have decided to start a new section that will take us around the island of Tenerife and learn not only about the cultural diversity of the island, but its people and way of life. This island has been compared to a “miniature continent” and this is reflected in the different sceneries, climates as well as local customs and festivals. We hope to show the island in a different light, away from the Sun, sand and party stereotypes. Every week, a municipality will be chosen for this purpose. So sit back, relax and explore what Tenerife has to offer. This week we are visiting the grand Municipality of Arona; much more than Los Cristianos Beach and nightclubs! ARONA

There is little data about the origin of the municipality. Most of the information relates almost exclusively to the existence of some traditional settlements after the Spanish conquest. Viera y Clavijo (conquistadors) mention the towns of Arona, along with Valley San Lorenzo and Cabo Blanco and referred to Vilaflor by its old name, Chasna. Arona was part of Vilaflor. The chapel of San Antonio Abad in Arona town was apparently built by the son of Anton Dominguez the Elder in the 17th century; the reason was to build a church that was closer to their home and not so far away from Vilaflor. The chapel finally split from the parish of Vilaflor by order of separation on March 30th of 1796 and the Municipality of Arona was born. Despite these modest beginnings, the town has seen a dramatic growth in recent years. In the middle of last century Los Cristianos was just a small fishing village and a quarry. Today it is an important tourist resort and a gateway to other islands via the ferry port. The population of Arona, which was decimated by the collapse in the price of cochineal, the sinking of agriculture, the effects of the First World War and The

www.tenerifeweekly.es

Spanish Civil War has multiplied by a factor of 9 within one century: reflecting the economic development reached by this municipality. The tourists sector is the main motor that drives the economy of this southern town. Arona has managed to exploit the features of the climate (warm, dry and with almost permanent sun) to create an important place for tourism. Over 60% of its population works directly or indirectly in this sector. There is an intensive agricultural activity, concentrated in the San Lorenzo Valley; bananas are the main product and they are mainly sold in mainland markets. Along with the bananas, but not as important, the land is used for the production of tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and flowers and they are exported to other European countries. Farms are usually not too large, the largest are located towards the coast, the medium-sized ones are located in the central parts of the municipality; while the small farms occupy the higher ground. Animal farming is in decline because of difficulties arising from water supply and the more attractive wages in the service sector. Arona marks the southern tip of the island, the west boundary ends at Bar-

ranco del Rey which falls on the border with Adeje and splits the town of Playa de las Américas in half. The boundary to the east with San Miguel is nearly a straight line. The northern flank zig-zags at an altitude of around 900 meters where its borders Vilaflor. Arona has some significant peaks and the terrains slopes gently toward the coast. Cliffs alternate with small coves and both rocky and sandy beaches. From ancient to the recent volcanic series, there are excellent examples of large areas covered by Salic pyroclastic lava flows. These large areas covered with a light-colored rock define much of the landscape of southern Tenerife. Some lava domes formed by highly viscous and silica rich lava stand out. They were formed under the surface and were exposed by erosion. Fine example are the different rocky hills that dot the landscape (Jama, Vento, Mountain Chijate, Malpaso ,...) . We can also observe the mountains that were built on the surface like the Guaza Mountain. Guaza Mountain is a nature reserve ideal for ramblers and joggers and an excellent example of an extrusive dome with lava flows. A volcanic edifice of considerable proportions, with its lava effusion,

Faro de la Rasca

Los Cristianos

formed from very viscous magma. On the other hand, Roque de Jama is a fine example of an intrusive dome. It is the largest of these volcanic edifices in Tenerife and it is of local botanical interest. From the Mirador of la Centinela there is a broad view of the San Lorenzo Valley and a large area of the South of Tenerife. Coastal areas still have places of considerable interest, but unfortunately the urbanization process has swallowed up important sites like the saltworks of El Guincho. The town of Arona itself offers complex architectural buildings of great interest. We can find multiple samples of popular architecture, which makes the town an important cultural landmark. The central park of Arona opened in 2004 and it is the largest green space in the municipality with 4 hectares. Designed by architects and biologists, it has a collection of tropical palms and a rocky space dedicated to the preservation of the endemic flora of the municipality. Among the various festivals the celebration of The Christ of Health and Our Lady of the Rosary, the first Sunday of October and the following Monday, attracts many people throughout the south. Since the summer of 2005 The Music Festival “Aguaviva Canarias” is held in the municipality.

WHAT? THE CANARIES COULD HAVE BEEN BRITISH? ADMIRAL NELSON’S ONLY DEFEAT The Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife was an amphibious assault by the Royal Navy on the Spanish port city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Launched by RearAdmiral Horatio Nelson on 22 July 1797, the assault was heavily defeated, and on 25 July the remains of the landing party withdrew under a truce with the loss of several hundred casualties. Nelson himself had been wounded in the arm, which was subsequently partially amputated: a stigma that he carried to his grave as a constant reminder of his failure. Nelson’s plan called for a night-time landing under Troubridge: The frigates would approach the shore in stealth and disembark troops with a view to falling on the Spanish batteries north east of the harbour. Ray was then to open mortar fire on the city. Nelson’s ships of the line would enter the harbour at break of dawn and seize the Spanish merchant ships and their cargo. A note sent by Nelson to the Spanish authorities demanded the surrender of all Spanish cargo and threatened the destruction of the city. On 20 July, Troubridge went aboard Theseus to sharpen the last details of his duties. His manoeuvre was conceived in two stages. The first called for a landing at Valle Seco beach, some two miles west of Santa Cruz harbour, from where the troops would surround and capture Fort Paso Alto. If the city had not surrendered at this point, a force of 1,000 infantry would march on the port and launch the definite attack. Each ship of the line provided 200 men and each frigate 100, supported by 80 artillerymen The plan began the next evening. In the clearness of the summer Canary night, citizens realised that blurry figures were sailing towards the pier: the British boats, carrying the troops, were on their way. They were in two groups: one of 23 boats and launches heading for the Bufadero cliff; the other, 16, coming right into the city. Authorities were updated as adverse currents held the English back. No marine bombardment was likely as ships could not get any closer and even though frigates could, the latter sported naval cannons of straight fire that could not be elevated to reach the city. The British had just one curve shot mortar which could inflict little

Page 10

damage. They had no howitzers and carronades were of no use in this situation. Spanish cannons began firing heavily on the boats, wrecking some of them. The currents were too strong and the British decided to go back to the ships. In a second attempt, frigates were tugged by the boats close to the Bufadero, where they anchored. Despite the Paso Alto castle shooting, the contrary currents and the lack of animals to carry the artillery, 1,000 British soldiers landed on Valle Seco beach with some equipment. In the middle of the night, some of the boats did not reach the beach and ended up strewn around, as no British officers knew its location. During 23 July a heavy cannonade and musketry duel took place. Gutiérrez managed to recruit more effectives and station them in the castle, as well as moving the forces from the Sta. Cruz fortress, now unnecessary, on to Paso Alto. The

British, who lost two men, were under pressure and had a difficult time. Nelson, from the Theseus, called the troops back. Once they were on board, the three frigates slipped before the Candelaria beach and the Barranco Hondo, firing into the cliffs, intending to frighten and silence the defenders. Once thwarted in Valle Seco, Gutiérrez guessed Nelson’s next move and brought most of the artillerymen to the port batteries, leaving just 30 militia men in Paso Alto. The British could not see the Spanish troops’ movements from one place to another, so they deemed the Spanish force larger than it actually was. Enraged by the failure of the first stage of his plan, Nelson called his captains on board Theseus and explained how he himself would lead the next move ahead of a boat group followed by five more boats led by captains Troubrige, Miller, Hood, Waller and Thompson straight to the San Cristóbal castle, in Sta. Cruz harbour, where Gutiérrez had by now assembled his best troops. In order to reduce the noise, clothpadded oars propelled the boats at 10:30 p.m. on 24 July from around the Zealous into the harbour. The Spanish frigate San José, anchored 500 metres away from the pier, fired an alarm shot when sailors on board heard the disembarking troops getting closer. Troubled waters were against the British, who amounted to 700 in the boats, supported by 180 in the cutter Fox and 80 in a Canary sloop taken earlier. Apart from the San Cristóbal castle, which had been engineered in order to emplace a huge 24-pound cannon, general Gutiérrez had split his force in four strategic points: Pila square, Santos stream, Carnicerías beach and Santo Domingo monastery. At around 23:00 a rain of cannon balls and musket bullets from the batteries of Paso Alto, San Miguel, San Antonio and San Pedro fell on the approaching British whose own ammunition was damp with seawater. Several shots reached the cutter’s hull. Some of the boats reached the beaches and marines managed to spike a couple of cannons, yet others drifted away. Spanish mortars and cannons focused on the successful sailors and swept them away. Many British casualties were left scattered on the beach. An immense line of fire, ranged from Paso Alto to San Telmo castle, targeted the small vessels. Before midnight the cutter Fox was hit by crossfire from the heights and sunk and more than half her crew drowned. British forces led by Bowen rushed the battery covering the harbour, captured it and spiked its guns. They began to pursue the fleeing Spanish into the town, but were swept by a hail of grapeshot Bowen and several of his men were killed, while Nelson, who was just landing from his boat, was hit in the right arm. Those soldiers who succeeded in reaching the beach were riddled with bullets from house terraces and windows. The citizens were so closely involved in repelling the attack to the point that, after the victory, some were given honours and medals. Nelson was bleeding copiously and his stepson, Lieutenant Nisbet, cut a piece of his own neck handkerchief and tied it tightly around Nelson’s arm to stop the bleeding. The admiral refused to use the frigate Seahorse that was stationed close by, to be taken back to his flagship, as it would imply that Captain Fremantle would have to hoist a flag of distress and thereby demoralise the crews. Instead, the sailors of his boat rowed hard back to the Theseus. The surgeon had been warned of the contingency and got his instruments ready. Nelson was

cited as saying, as he pointed to his right arm “Doctor, I want to get rid of this useless piece of flesh here”. Nelson’s operation was quick and aseptic. The limb was thrown over board, despite the admiral’s wish to keep it. The batteries increased the cannonade when they noticed that almost half of the thousand British soldiers had managed to land on the Carnicerías beach and were attempting to slip into the city. Captains Troubridge and Hood, leading 350 men, accomplished the taking of La Consolación convent. However, the rest of the troops were defeated when they tried to assault the San Cristóbal fortress from behind. Troubridge was aware of his desperate situation with no support from ships or more reinforcements coming to his aid, but sent a message to Gutierrez demanding the surrender of the San Jose or he would burn the town. Gutiérrez, a veteran soldier, refused. In the meantime, the Spanish general ordered the fire on the besieged British to be increased while he brought more artillerymen to the batteries closer to La Consolación. The rest of the British forces achieved disembarkation in Las Carnicerías and proceeded through the Santos cliff. Despite the heavy fire from the Spanish fortresses, these men succeeded in joining Troubridge after being bottled up in Sto. Domingo square. Gutiérrez had the Canarias battalion blockade the pier so that Troubridge could not make any escape back, nor could any support come in. Two columns headed for the harbour, one behind the Sto. Domingo square in order to hinder the British advance inside the city and the other along the coast. In the morning, a convalescent Nelson attempted to reinforce Troubridge by sending 15 boats into the pier. At around 1:00 am, Spanish gunfire swept the small squadron. Three of them were sunk with more than 30 drowned, the rest rowed back shocked. Captain Troubridge sent another message to Gutiérrez through Captain Hood, requesting honourable terms for a withdrawal. Gutierrez agreed to this, and by 7.00 am a truce was signed that allowed the remaining British forces to return to their ships with full military honours For his part Hood undertook not to burn the town, or make any further attacks on Tenerife or the Canary Islands The Spanish suffered only 30 dead and 40 injured, while the British lost 250 dead and 128 wounded. The journey back to England was difficult, as Nelson had lost many men and sails. Gutiérrez lent Nelson two Spanish schooners to help the shot-torn British on their way back. The Spanish general also allowed the British to leave with their arms and war honours. These acts of chivalry led to a courteous exchange of letters between Nelson and Gutiérrez. Nevertheless, Nelson would later remark that Tenerife had been the most horrible Hell he had ever endured—and not only for the loss of his arm. Nelson’s letter offering a cheese as a gratitude token is actually on display at the new Spanish Army Museum in Toledo.

Man Crushed To Death by Elephant TWO wild elephants have trampled a man to death and killed two cows in a rampage through an Indian city. The animals entered a suburb in Mysore, in the southern Karnataka state, from a nearby forest and soon caused widespread panic and havoc. A 55-year-old man was killed after coming out of his house to see what the commotion was all about. He was crushed against the ground by one of the animals and died instantly. And on another street two cows were tossed around and eventually killed by the huge beasts in front of a crowd of onlookers. Karnataka state higher education minister SA Ramdas said schools and colleges were closed for the day and extra police deployed as a

After three hours, forest rangers and staff from Mysore Zoo managed to capture and tranquilise the pair. One official blamed the rampage on the encroachment of human settlements into forested areas that are the elephants’ natural habitat. “Unregulat-

London 2012 Olympic Torch Design Revealed THE design of the Olympic torch that will be carried by 8,000 runners across the UK before next year’s Games has been unveiled.

It will be a threesided golden cone with the Olympic Flame burning through its perforated shell. The triangular shape symbolises the three times that London has staged the Games - 1908, 1948 and 2012. Made from an aluminium alloy and weighing just 800g, the torch will be light enough to be carried by young people. The 80cm cone also has 8,000 lasercut circular perforations, one for each ‘inspirational’

Sebastian Coe, London 2012 chairman, said: “The torch that carries the Olympic flame during the Olympic Torch Relay is one of the most recognisable and significant symbols of an Olympic Games. “Members of the public right across the UK are busy nominating inspiring people to be torchbearers and I am thrilled we have a beautifully designed engineered and crafted torch for them to carry.” The flame will arrive from Greece on May 18 setting off the 70day Olympic torch relay

The route will also take in famous sports venues, historic sites and places of outstanding natural beauty.

ITALY says it will go to the international court in The Hague in a bid to overturn Brazil’s decision not to extradite an Italian fugitive. Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi expressed “great regret” at Brazil’s Supreme Court ruling over Cesare Battisti.

Battisti was released from prison in Brazil following the court’s decision. The former leftwing rebel escaped from an Italian jail in 1981, while awaiting trial for four murders in the 1970s. He has always denied the charges. He was convicted of murder in absentia in 1990, but the 56-year-old insists he is the victim of political persecution in Italy. Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva denied Italy’s extradition request a day before he left office in January - a move that caused outrage in Italy, which withdrew its ambassador. Silvio Berlusconi said Brazil’s decision on the extradition request “denies justice to the Italian people and in particular to Battisti’s victims”. Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said: “Italy plans to activate immediately every possible judicial mechanism... in particular through the Hague international court.” He said Italy

would “seek to overturn the decision that it holds is not in accordance with... the requirements of international law”. The nine Supreme Court judges voted 6-3 to confirm ex-President Lula’s decision to deny the extradition. They ruled that the decision complied with a bilateral treaty, and that Italy did not have the legal standing to challenge the former president’s decision. “At stake here is national sovereignty. It is as simple as that,” said Judge Luiz Fux, one of the nine. But Mr. Frattini said the decision “appears to breach international agreements between the two countries, as well as

the profound and age-old blood and friendship ties”. Battisti has been a fugitive since escaping jail in Italy - living for many years in France, where he started a career as a novelist, before moving to Mexico and finally Brazil. He was released from the Papuda maximum-security prison within hours of the ruling. Italy says the former member of the radical Armed Proletarians for Communism (PAC) is a terrorist, however, Battisti insists that he is guilty only of being involved in “an armed group with a subversive aim and of having carried weapons”, not of shooting anyone.

Cesare Battisi has been on the run since 1981

Mustard ice-cream anyone? HOT mustard-flavoured icecream is set to hit UK supermarket shelves this month. This dairy ‘delight’ was designed and created by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal for Waitrose.

“This is the first commercial savoury ice-cream,” said the Michelin chef. It does contain sugar, but other traditional sweet flavourings have been swapped for Pommery grain mustard. “It is both sweet and savoury at the same time,” said Chef Heston. It became a hit after he created it for his restaurant The Fat Duck in Berkshire. “Mustard ice-cream may sound a bit strange at first glance, but served with a selection of cold meats or a tomato salad, it really comes into its own.”

‘Psychic’ Wanted Over Fake Mass Grave Tip-Off

POLICE are trying to locate a self titled ‘psychic’ who led them on a wild goose chase after she claimed to know the location of a mass grave containing up to 30 dismembered children.

A helicopter and sniffer dogs were called in as officers combed the area around a rural home near Daisetta in Texas, but no bodies were found. The woman, who twice called police claiming to be psychic, had provided a good description of the property. Officers launched a full-

scale investigation after blood was found on the porch. But a judge later declared there was “no crime scene”. The home’s occupant, Joe Bankson, told reporters that he and his wife, both truck drivers, had been away since Sunday and knew nothing about any dead bodies and equally hadn’t killed anyone. Captain Rex Evans, of the Liberty County Sherriff’s Office, confirmed no bodies had been recovered. “We have investigated this part of the scene as much as we can,” he said as officers were leaving the property.

David Cameron has reportedly sent the Justice Secretary back to the drawing board over the reforms in a bid to re-impose the Tories’ law and order standing. The two men had a 30 meeting yesterday to discuss the issue. Sources say that the Ministry of Justice spending cuts could now be revisited. The department still has to make £100m savings - reducing the prison population and revisiting legal aid are among the few options available. Mr. Clarke’s proposal - one of a series of sentencing alterations - was unpopular with Conservative colleagues and viewed as a vote loser.

Shrek’s owner, John Perriam, of Bendigo Hill station, said the famous sheep had to be put down over the weekend because of age-related illnesses.”He was just an ordinary sheep, went awol and hid, and when he was found he became the darling of the nation,” Mr Perriam told local broadcaster TVNZ. “He had an unbelievable p e r s o n a l i t y.

Josie Spillane of Cure Kids said over the years Shrek had raised more than $150,000 (£75,000) for the charity, which funded research into life-threatening illnesses. “At the end of the day, it is the death of an iconic Kiwi. He just happens to be a sheep,” she told media Local reports said a memorial service would be held for Shrek at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Tekapo, and that his owner planned to place a bronze statue of the sheep in the local town.

and unwilling women resulted in longer sentences. Less clear-cut “date rapes” and consensual sex between teens, one of whom was under age, skewed average sentencing figures, he insisted. Labour leader Ed Miliband seized on his remarks demanding his sacking. Mr. Clarke was later forced to make a public declaration that he regarded “all rape as a serious crime”. He also said “sorry” to a sexual assault victim who broke down in tears as she challenged him during a radio phone-in about the half-jail terms. A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “The consultation on the Green Paper has now closed and we are compiling our response, which we expect to publish in the next few weeks. “We do not give a running commentary on discussions and meetings between ministers.”

The French air accident investigations bureau (BEA) found the crew had struggled with contradictory speed readings just before the plane crashed.

Ireland beats Italy 2-0 in friendly

TUESDAY night saw Ireland beat former world cup champions 2-0 in a soccer friendly match played in Belgium.

Blackburn midfielder Keith Andrews put Ireland ahead in the 36th minute following a free kick and substitute Simon Cox doubled the lead in the 90th minute. Ireland had several usual starters missing, with Robbie Keane, John O’Shea, Kevin Kilbane and firstchoice goalkeeper Shay Given. Italy controlled for long stretches but was unable to create many clear chances before a crowd of about 20,000 dominated by Italian immigrants.”Maybe Italy should have equalized for their technical skill and possession, but we

took advantage of our opportunities,” Ireland coach and former Italian player Giovanni Trapattoni said. He also has challenged his Republic of Ireland players to take their impressive form into their remaining Euro 2012 qualifiers. But the 72-year-old knows they will have to play equally well, if not better, when they entertain the Slovakia in September four days before heading for Russia, with the three teams locked together at the top of Group B. Trapattoni said: “We have played four games in 15 days. We have played Northern Ireland, Scotland – which was a tough match – and then won in Macedonia, which was another tough match, and now Italy.“I said it before

and I was right, we are coming out of these 15 days with the right mentality, the mentality that we need to go and play against teams like Russia and Slovakia. The lads have understood that fact.” The win over Italy at the Maurice Dufrasne Stadium was hugely encouraging for Trapattoni, who rested most of his big players and saw their

understudies perform their duties to the letter. Sean St Ledger, who just missed out on a place in the squad in Macedonia despite not playing for 10 weeks because of a knee injury, was near faultless at the back, while Stephen Hunt’s energy in midfield allowed Shane Long and Andy Keogh to keep the Italian defence occupied. The Republic went ahead

in style nine minutes before the break when Blackburn midfielder Keith Andrews drilled a low shot into the bottom corner from Hunt’s short free-kick. Italy, who had enjoyed the larger share of the possession up until that point, did so once again after it, but without unduly troubling keeper David Forde, who was starting his first game for his country. It was left to substitute Simon Cox to seal the win when he slid in to meet Hunt’s 90thminute cross. Hunt was one of two men – central defender Darren O’Dea was the other – who were doubts before the game, but they were desperate to play and Trapattoni admitted afterwards that he wished their attitude would rub off on some

of those who withdrew from the squad because of fitness concerns. He said: “They [Hunt and O’Dea] showed they have the heart to play, a heart that a lot of Irish players have. “I wish that those who don’t necessarily have the heart that it takes to be here would take the example of these players.” Italy boss Cesare Prandelli was unhappy with his team’s performance on the night. He said: “We didn’t play like we can and we must reflect on the defeat. We did not play like a team – each player was playing as if they were on their own, “Ireland defended very well and we couldn’t break down their defence.”

Death of former RTÉ presenter Peter Murphy Blooming Success

FORMER RTÉ radio and television presenter Peter Murphy died last week he was 88 and died suddenly on returning home from a holiday in Connemara. For several decades he was known as one of the most prominent voices of rural Ireland and presented the television farming programme Landmark. However, he was best known as a question master and question setter on Cross Country Quiz.

Mr. Murphy compiled 14 quiz books during the 1970s and 1980s and formally retired almost 20 years ago, but continued to publish a crossword each Tuesday in the Farming Independent up to the time of his death as well as in the Irish Farmers Monthly. Mr. Murphy kept a life-long interest in his home town of Clonegal, Co Carlow, but has been a long-time res-

He won many awards for public speaking and debating. IFA President John Bryan has paid tribute to Mr. Murphy. Mr. Bryan said farmers would be saddened to hear the news of Peter Murphy’s passing, who he described as a champion of rural Ireland and a superb communicator. ‘His enthusiasm was evident right to the end. Peter Murphy played an important role in the setting up of IFA and was very influential through his work on the Landmark programme.’ Peter Murphy is survived by his wife Bridie, two sons and two daughters and his two grandchildren.

2010 being the most difficult year in tourism in decades, the popularity of attractions remained quite high. Failte Ireland said encouraging families to take their summer breaks in Ireland would be the central message of its Home Holiday campaign for 2011.

MORE than 60,000 people have visited Bloom 2011, the gardening, food and family festival, breaking previous records for the event. Bord Bia, which spent €1.5 million staging the festival, was extremely pleased at the visitor turnout, “It has been very heartening to see the show grow and the interest people are taking in it,” said Bord Bia chief executive Aiden Cotter yesterday. The event would not make a profit but was not intended to, he said. Bloom’s role was to promote food and horticulture and ensure everything on view was top quality. While some patrons complained about the entrance and parking fees, Mr Cotter said Bord Bia aimed to keep prices reasonable and the event accessible to the public. Fine Gael MEP Mairead McGuinness spent

several hours at the event on Saturday, as did former taoiseach John Bruton and his wife, Finola. Despite temperatures dipping sharply on Monday and rain swept over the site, crowds estimated by the organisers were undeterred. Attracting attention in the exhibition hall was a new, red- fleshed variety of apple, called Redlove, developed in Switzerland and soon to be introduced here. “It is delicious to eat, has higher antioxidants than other apples and is disease-resistant,” said Thomas Quearney of importers Mr Middleton Garden Shop. It will be available in September and will cost about €30 per tree.

Minister for Employment, Valeriano Gómez, has said that the labour reform on the wage round which is to be introduced by Royal Decree by the Government today, will be ‘prudent and quiet’. He said the Government would see ‘balance’ and ‘internal flexibility’ without leaving the workers unprotected. Spanish multinational company, Repsol, has entered into the offshore wind generating market with the purchase of Sea Energy for 57 million €. Sea Energy is setting up three different offshore farms off the U.K. Industrial production in Spain has fallen by 4.1% over April, after five previous months of increases, according to numbers from the National Statistics Institute INE. The fall is being blamed on a fall in demand for consumer white goods, which are selling at levels 15% lower than a year ago. Technology company ‘Worten’ is following plans for a rapid expansion in Spain and now finds itself likely to take up eight of the closed PC city stores, and benefit from the bankruptcy of Catalan rival Miró. Worten profits in the first quarter were 12 million €, 106% higher than a year ago. Over that year the number of stores in Spain has gone from 40 to 89. Mercadona and El Corte Inglés supermarkets have joined other companies in the sector and are now charging for single use plastic bags. Mercadona will sell the bags at two cents, and reusable bags at ten cents. Spain is to reopen old gold mines in Asturias. Mining company Kinbauri, which is part of the Canadian group, Orvana, Minerals Corporation, has started extracting at El Valle-Boinás at Belmonte de Miranda and at Carlés in Salas. Both locations are on the riverside of the Narcea river and were closed in 2006. With gold trading at the record high of 1,538 $ an ounce, these old mines could be profitable again. The Government says it is toughening up the conditions on companies who apply for public works contracts. The Ministry for Development is to put more weight on the money bid when making decisions, and warns that budgets will only be allowed to overrun in extraordinary circumstances. Hacienda says that they have already returned 3.43 billion € in tax rebates to five million taxpayers. It represents 74% of the requests for money back. The number of taxpayers this year is down 1.66% on last year, and the amount being paid back is also down by 3.59%. 64% of declarations were made over the internet. The price war is continuing in the mobile phone sector in Spain as companies also face a fall in consumption. Orange has responded to Telefónica and copied their 6 cents a minute offer. Consumers continue to move to Yoigo and the virtual operators where they see value. Their market share in March was 9,6% compared to 5.9% a year ago. Minister for Industry, Miguel Sebastián, has announced the Government’s intention to freeze electricity prices in July. He said the Government would move ahead with the move unless there is a very, very, very bad electricity supply auction on June 21.The price fixed by the Government varies as a function of the current price of power and taxes levied. The Spanish Government has approved a regulation by royal decree to limit wages in Spanish banks, doing so to try and stop the ‘deposits war’ where the banks are offering more interest to try and attract savers. Under the new regulation the Bank of Spain will have the ability to control the wages of the banks which have received state help. The number of 500 € notes in circulation is continuing to fall and is now at levels last seen in 2006. April ended with 102.59 million of the notes in circulation, 431,556 fewer than a year previously, but even so given their high face value the 500 € notes still account for 70% of the total cash in circulation. Many consider that testimony to the size of the black economy in Spain. Despite Spain voting against, the European Parliament has approved a regulation which will allow toll charges placed on lorries to increase. Tolls could rise by as much as 30% for lorry drivers. Spain considers the new rules penalise the countries on the edge of the continent, and will make the crisis worse for transport workers.

Insurance - Explained

with Emma Swain

How are claims handled

From the moment of the accident to collection of your repaired vehicle, a lot goes on in the claim procedure. You’ve had an accident, what happens next? The most important thing is that you make sure that an accident claim form is completed at the scene of the accident with any other involved parties, make sure that once it is completed you check the information that the other party has noted down. This is not an admission of blame it is just a statement of facts, it is also important to note down the name and telephone numbers of any witnesses. If there are any casualties always call for an ambulance and the police will be dispatched as a matter of course so the accident claim form would then not be necessary as a police report would be produced. If there are no injured parties but you feel intimated in any way or you are just in doubt always call the police for assistance. If possible take pictures of the scene and of any road marking that may strengthen your case. The next step is to inform your insurer, either directly or via your agent, depending on how you purchased the policy. Your agent or insurer, should request a copy of the accident claim form that was filled in, along with a photocopy of the drivers licence for the driver (if they are not named on the policy). The next step then is to decide whether or not you choose to use your fully comprehensive cover (if you have it), or whether you wish to wait for the third party claim (if the accident was not your fault). If you choose to use your fully comprehensive (whether the accident was your fault or not), your insurance company would usually send out a perito (assessor) to assess the damages and make a report, this is always the case if there is a third party claim involved as the third party company would always request a copy of the assessment. This would need to be done at the garage where you wish to have the car repaired and in most cases it is pretty quick. The garage would then need to discuss with the assessor the extent of the damage and the parts required to repair the car. Once the assessor has made his report he would then send a copy to the company and to the garage, in some cases the assessor can authorise the repair direct and in others the company would have to issue the garage with the authorization for repair, either way again this is a pretty straight forward process. Once the garage has received the authorization for repair it is then up to them to source the parts and get the car repaired. Once the car is repaired and you go to collect it, you must check that you are happy with the repair before you sign the appropriate documents, as one of them is a satisfaction note, once that is signed you have agreed that you are happy with the repair. You would then obviously need to pay your appropriate excess to the garage at this point. If it is a third party claim make sure that you get an invoice for your excess as your insurance company will require it once the claim has finally been settled, to refund you your excess. If you are only insured third party or you decide to wait for the third party company to accept liability and pay out the process is a little different. In most cases the documentation required is the same as above apart from an estimate for the repair as your insurer would need to provide the third party company with it so that they can authorize the repair or again send an assessor of their own to look at the car. The only problem with this is that it can be a very lengthy process and it is out of the hands of your insurer, as the only thing they can do is ring the third party company and request an update, they have no control over the time they take to accept liability and agree to the claim. The same process is undertaken when attempting to recuperate your excess, your insurer must wait until they have been paid out before they can reimburse you. The claim process can be a very straight forward if you are using your fully comprehensive or very complicated and lengthy if you are waiting for a third party payout. In any case your agent is the best person to ask for more advice, but I would always recommend using your fully comprehensive cover if you have it as the process is handled much quicker.

NATIONAL NEWS

Spain’s first transsexual MP sworn in THE new regional MPs were sworn in at the Madrid parliament on Tuesday morning, when Carla Antonelli became the first transsexual woman to hold a seat in a Spanish regional parliament.

She was number 18 on the Madrid Socialists’ list of candidates and has been a member of PSOE for a number of years. She was a prominent LGBT rights activist for many years and even threatened to go on hunger strike when she was campaigning for the Gender Identity Law which was approved in 2007.

She told Público that her achievement on Tuesday is the result of the long struggle by thousands of transsexuals.‘We have achieved unthinkable goals and raising up the microphone today and saying, ‘Yes, I swear, is the materialisation of what was much more than a utopia in the 1970s’. Antonelli said in a press release the day before she was sworn in as a regional MP that it would be ‘a historic moment’. ‘I have reached this point, and it hasn’t been easy, and I want to show that transsexuals can and should be in all places and spheres of work’.

Spanish scientists decode Lymphatic Leukaemia gene

Carla Antonelli

SPANISH scientists have decoded the genome for Chronic Lymphatic Leukaemia, the most common strain of the disease. It shows that the disease is produced by the accumulation of genetic damage in normal cells. The researchers have followed 3 billion sequences in the genome from the cancerous cells of four patients. They were led by Elías Campo from the Hospital Clínic and Barcelona University, and Carlos López-Otin from Oviedo University. More than 60 people from the Spanish Genome Consortium took part in the research. It’s being described as an important step in the fight against cancer, and an achievement for the Spanish investigators. The study was published on Sunday in Nature magazine. THE Spanish Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, will meet with his British counterpart, David Cameron in London on June 27th, the day before the start of the State of the Nation Debate in Congress here.

Coca-Cola Colombia’s most dangerous ‘invented’ hit man arrested in Valencia Spain

NATIONAL Police have arrested one of Colombia’s most dangerous hit men, known as ‘Pipi’, in Valencia. THE world’s most popular fizzy drink, Coca There was an interCola was invented in Spain.

In 1880 three friends from the town; Bautista Aparici, Ri- bia’s ‘most wanted’. cardo Sanz and Enrique Ortiz, created a distillery ‘Destileria Ayelo’ which supplied the royal household and won several distinctions. It remains open today. The drink they produced made from kola nut strain and coca leaves from Peru, had a taste and colour similar to Coca-Cola, and was labelled ‘Nuez de ColaCoca’. Destileria Ayelo visited a drinks conference in Philadelphia in 1885, the year before Coca-Cola was officially launched. In 1886 Coca-Cola was serving nine cokes a day, out of a single soda shop in Atlanta. Meanwhile, the Spanish drink had been patented, but it was common practice at the time to only accept patents when the item had proved to be popular, and it wasn’t registered until 1903, almost 20 years after the US. Today the world consumes 1.7 billion cokes a day, according to a Coca Cola website and credit for their secret recipe goes to a pharmacist named John Pemberton. In the 1940s Coke was trying to enter the Spanish market, but couldn’t because of trademark laws. They allegedly had to buy the ‘Cola Coca’ name from Destileria Ayelo first because of the similarity. Coke paid them the equivalent of about €1,100, a small fortune at the time, according to the current owner, Juan Jose Mica, but there is no paperwork to prove this in Ayelo or with The Coca Cola Co. But the factory changed the name of its award-winning drink from Cola Coca to Cola Nut Coca around that time and added alcohol. To this day, Juan Jose has a recipe book dated 1881 with their own ‘secret’ recipe handwritten in Valenciano.

Endangered species recovered by Guardia Civil

GUARDIA CIVIL in Huelva rescued five wolves and an American Red lynx which were being held by a contraband network trafficking with endangered species. The operation, codenamed ‘Wild Life’ was carried out in several locations in Spain with the collaboration of officers from Granada, Malaga, Guadalajara and Oviedo, resulting

in the arrests of four people. The investigation began in January, in Palos de la Frontera, Huelva, when a wolf, a ferret and a harrier where found at a private home. The people charged contacted each other via specialized internet forums and e-mail, sending the animals they sold for between €600 and

€1,000 by courier service after receiving payment via bank transfer or money order. The animals remain where they were found by judicial resolution, except one of the wolves which was sent to a centre for animal recovery.

Four people are charged with dealing with protected species and two with document falsification.

POLITICAL INSIGHT

With Brian Harrison

THROUGHOUT mainland Spain and the Canary Islands, many constituents were totally outraged at many of the results of the May 22nd elections. A substantial number of mayors and councillors, under investigation or awaiting sentencing for single or multiple corruption charges were voted back into office, many with overwhelming majorities. In a European democracy in 2011, where information is accessible to each and every citizen within Spanish territory, why did this occur? What prompted the public to accept alleged corrupt administrations in so many municipalities? In this weeks Political Insight, we analyse some of the reasons why.

his closest aids took what they wanted, when they wanted it from the state coffers and from the public alike. When Franco visited Galicia, his homeland, all the jewellers hid their prize pieces. They were too used to Franco’s wife entering the jewellers with her bodyguards, taking what she wanted, and telling the store owner that her officials would be in touch to pay the bill. Of course, the bills were never honoured, and if anyone made a fuss, they’re business would probably be closed down by the authorities. Apart from this “usual” corruption, the state was utterly brutal. Opposition parties were, of course, banned and membership or aiding them was punishable by imprisonment or death. Franco banned Galician, Basque, Bable, Catalan and Valenciano as spoken or written languages. Historical literature written in these languages was destroyed, reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1920’s. If someone was overheard by the security services talking in any other language than Castellano (central Spanish), they would be arrested and probably imprisoned. Homosexuality was punishable by imprisonment, internment to secure psychiatric hospitals, or in some cases, beatings or execution. The female gender was particularly oppressed; a woman could not sign any document or learn to drive without the countersignature of her spouse. Women who suffered domestic violence were obliged by law to remain in their homes with their aggressors; if a woman abandoned her

home it was regarded a criminal offence and she would be arrested, and in most cases imprisoned. This was what Spanish people endured; systematic and repetitive oppression, fear and humiliation at the hands of a non-elected head of state which we, as northern Europeans, have never had to experience. The memories of this dark era are still fresh in the minds of many, and stories and accounts of the brutality have been passed down first hand to a generation of voters who now have the

freedom to vote. Even the worst of the present day corruption could not compare with the severity of pre-1977 life in Spain. Perhaps, with this recent past put into perspective, we can begin to understand why current day political corruption is almost accepted. “OK, we know that you’re corrupt, but we still democratically elected you because we can. So what if you steal from us? You’ll never be able to dictate to us, murder us or oppress us”.

Indentifecation of a victim of Franco’s regime, which lasted until shortly after his death in 1975

POLITICAL COMMENT

The future can only get better for Spanish politics. The 15M movement is awakening the political consciences of an entire new sector of voters, the internet is forcing radical reforms to the main media groups, and the third generation of Spanish democratic voters will

soon outnumber their predecessors. Maybe, just maybe, the Spanish democracy is finally about to enter a brand new era of transparency; the only long term solution to reduce unemployment and create sustainable and more evenly distributed wealth.

June 10th - June 16th 2011

The 2011 Glamour Awards The Good

Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton picked up the award for ‘Radio Personalitity Of The Year, whilst Jessie J took home the ‘Woman Of Tomorrow’ award and top marks for her gorgeous black number. Jessie - real name Jessica Cornish - had ditched the severe black bob of a few days ago for hair extensions in a stunning soft and wavy style that almost brought to mind 1940s pin-ups. The 23-year-old star also showed how pretty she could be by smiling naturally on the red carpet at the Berkley Square event, rather than pulling her trademark pouting pose.

The Saturdays were the clear front-runners in the fashion stakes at Wednesday’s Glamour Awards while other celebrities seemed to think the dress code was to turn up looking distinctively unglamorous.

Fearne Cotton, Jessie J and Alex Jones

The Bad The usually glamorous Kirsty Gallagher arrived at the bash looking as though she had just come from rehearsals of Shrek The Musical, whereas Bad Boys singer Burke was among those that could have done with some of their advice before getting ready, as she turned up to the awards in what can only be described as a floral, silk tent. A Far cry from her normal sexy image. Kristen Stewart looked her normal miserable self. No change there then!

Kirsty Gallagher, Kristen Stewart and Alexandra Burke

......And The Just Plain Ugly One look at this lot begs the question, Why did they even bother? The clue is surely in the title of the event, ‘The Glamour Awards’. Miranda Hart may have picked up the award for ‘Comedy Actress Of The Year’ but her outfit made people laugh for all the wrong reasons.Likewise, New York singer Paloma Faith pulled yet another wardrobe malfunction in yet another eccentric get-up. Wearing a black sheer dress with bat-wing sleeves, he bridal-inspired hat on her head only served to draw more attention to what was already a no-go zone Miranda Hart, Pixie Geldof and Paloma Faith for style.Pixie Geldof also made it into the fashion hall of shame with her choice of an oriental-inspired House of Holland dress and dark roots that needed a re-touch. WAKE UP AND CALL THE STYLIST!

The Saturday’s Steal The Show

The fivesome – made up of Mollie King, Una Healy, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman – all added sparkle to the proceedings in an array of sexy cocktail dresses, sky-high stilettos and perfects hairdos.

Like Lambs We Follow

SINCE the cast of reality TV show ‘The Only Way is Essex’ flew out to Marbella, bookings for stag and hen parties to the resort have increased by 63 per cent, according to hen and stag party provider, Redseven. “We’ve seen a huge surge in bookings from those wanting to follow suit, and rightly so, since Marbella has a vibrant party scene and beautiful beaches to relax on the following day” says Ian Lucas, founder and CEO of Redseven.

I’ll Be Back

Matt Smith has signed on to appear in a new series of Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed. Fourteen new episodes of the sci-fi show, executive produced by Steven Moffat, have been commissioned.However it is not yet known when the new episodes will be broadcast.

June 10th - June 16th 2011

Out On The Town By

The Night Hawk

A tribute!

As always the standard of entertainment here seems to be getting better with each week that goes by and it’ fabulous to see that live music is making more of a comeback than even I realized. If I mentioned the names: Brian May, Freddie Mercury, John Deacon, Roger Taylor, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Glen Frey, Timothy B Schmitt, Nick Mason, Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and Paul McCartney, Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jnr, Adam Clayton - yes probably the world’s biggest names, or collectively - Queen, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and U2. Un f o r t u n a t e l y some of the members of these bands are no longer with us, but their legacy is the unbelievable music that has spanned the last 48 years. Yes it was 48 years ago that the Beatles had their first number 1 hit with “From Me To You” and stayed at Number 1 for 17 weeks…and so it began.

Here on the island we have many tribute acts, but over the coming weeks I am going to bring you some of the live bands that can be seen here, including: The Beatles, Queen Project, The Eagles, Pink Floyd and many, many more. As well as the live tribute bands there are many fabulous live musicians here, i.e. The Dubliner Band, Soundchaser, Phoenix, Traveller Blues Band to name

but a few. These excellent musicians play regularly in various venues on the island and I am going to be conducting in depth interviews with them over the coming months. I was passing a venue the other night and happened to notice Indiana was on stage with her Lady Gaga tribute. This extremely talented lady really knows how to put a show across with a fantastic

voice, fabulous costumes and an altogether brilliant show. Even if you are not a Lady fan you have to go see this show. Another show to watch out for is Alex McRea. This talented guy has a really incredible voice (which earned him top male vocalist award last year) and real-

ly knows how to belt out the big rock numbers, but also I have heard him sing show songs from the likes of Les Misérables and I have to say no matter what he is singing it is a pleasure to watch (or rather listen) to him in action. If you are a fan of rock ‘n’ roll then

there is nobody better to go and watch than Dion. He is the master of rock ‘n’ roll, both with his vocal ability and his knowledge of the era. Apart from belting out the hits, see how well you do with his quiz. Can you beat him? If you think you can, go along and watch the show, pure entertainment from the first minute to the last. One lady with an amazing (and that is putting it mildly) voice is Hayley Lewis. What a range this young lady has…..from pop to opera every song is delivered to perfection. I had the pleasure of hearing her at Rockstory and was absolutely mesmerized with her rendition of Barcelona. Of course it was not a surprise to hear and see the audience reaction. Together with Beccy Moss a new duo has emerged called Destiny. I watched them one Friday night and I have to say they are su-

perb, more on Destiny in a later issue. Whatever your taste in music there is something for everyone here on Tenerife and I have to say (after

watching Britain’s got Talent last week), Mr Cowell get yourself over here; ‘cause our acts will knock your socks off. There is more talent compressed on this small rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean than anything I have seen on the show. Am I biased… NO Is this truthful….YES Our acts here on the island are something to be proud of and can hold their heads up anywhere they perform. They are the best.

Health, Beauty Water: The Matter of Life

&

Water- so needed and so often overlooked. You probably know that about 70 % of our body is water. The water is needed for every metabolic process in the body, including the synthesis of proteins. So, if you exercise and want to keep your body in perfect condition, then the simplest way to double the needed effect is to drink more water. It will help you to avoid many unpleasant diseases and problems. Learn more about the great abilities of the water and what will happen to your body if you are dehydrated. Water is not absorbed by your body. The intake of soft drinks and coffee, although both are liquids, will not help you to improve your health. The caffeine in these beverages acts as a diuretic and it will cause the loss of fluids. If this situation occurs, your body begins to accumulate water, which can cause many serious problems. That is why you should drink at least 2 litres of water daily. The quantity is variable depending on your weight and needs. Water clears the toxins. Water removes the toxins out of your body. In combination with a proper, highprotein diet the water will easily remove the excess nitrogen, ketones and urea. If you are building muscles, then you should double the quantity of the water. It will greatly increase the efficiency of your kidneys. Water against fats. Our kidneys cannot function properly without enough water. If your body is dehydrated, then your liver is overloaded. This will inevitably lead to weight gain, because instead of burning the fats, your liver will accumulate fats. If you drink enough water then you will feel less hungry. The water diet is very famous around the globe. Water reduces fluid retention. If you drink a lot water, it will actually help you to get rid of the fluids accumulated in your body. When you do not drink enough water your body thinks that there is shortage of water and begins to store the needed water for the proper functioning of the body. It will definitely lead to many heath and skin problems.

Intense blues are currently making serious splashes in the fashion world for spring/summer 2011. Emilio Pucci, for example, used a beautiful spectrum of blues for the label’s Spring collection. All the pieces had an unmistak-

Water takes care for your heath. If the amount of water in the body is low, then your body starts to gain water from organs like the colon. This will easily lead to constipation and digestive problems. Water helps people who consume a lot of salt. If the water retention is a chronic problem, then it may be caused by the large amount of salt in your diet. If you consume a lot of salty dishes, then your body tries to retain as much water as possible. So, just reduce the salt intake and you will be able to overcome this heath issue. Water will help for better absorption of the food nutrients. Supplements such as creatine work by drawing water into the muscle cells, thus creating an anabolic environment needed for growth. In order to operate at full efficiency, the creatine needs a large quantity of water. In addition, if you train hard and intensely, then you need to intake the essential vitamins in larger quantities than normal. Many of them are water-soluble and water is the key to their effective operation.

Feed Your Hair: 10 Foods for Luscious Locks

Your hair may be just a bunch of dead cells, your scalp, on the other hand is very much alive. That’s why you can’t feel touch on the ends of your hair, but you can near the roots. A healthy scalp makes for a good head of hair. How your tresses appear can indicate your state of health and the nature of your diet. For instance, thinning hair can sometimes spell a deficiency in iron and or anaemia. So, if your locks are lacking in lustre, this could be an indicator that you may also be lacking in a number of essential vitamins found in the hair ‘super foods’ below. 1. Salmon: These fish are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which give your locks a lustrous shine. Naturally, a serious lack of omega-3 can cause the scalp to become dry making your hair appear dull and lifeless. 2. Spinach: The dark, leafy greens your parents made you eat contain large amounts of vitamin A and C, which the body uses to make sebum. This oily substance secreted by your hair follicles acts as a natural conditioner and a treatment for dandruff.

3. Kidney beans: These meaty

legumes provide valuable proteins that help your hair to grow. They also contain biotin which keeps your hair strong. A lack of biotin can cause hair to become weak and brittle.

7.

4. Brazil nuts and walnuts:

Rich-tasting Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium, an essential mineral for a happy scalp. They are also heavy on calories so be sure to eat in moderation. Another excellent nut, walnuts are high in zinc - and a zinc deficiency can cause hair to fall out.

5. Chicken: Even though they don’t have hair, chickens are great for your tresses in so many ways. Chicken contains high-grade protein and amino acids that keeps strands strong, improves thickness and maintains colour. Too little protein can result in brittle hair and turn you gray faster than you’d like. Chicken is also high in vitamin B6, which helps aid red blood cell health and carries oxygen to the scalp.

6. Eggs: Another beauty food from our friends the chickens. Eggs are not only an excel-

lent source of protein; they also contain valuable nutrients for hair. In fact, a raw egg can add new life to a dull head of hair. High in vitamins A, D and E, these nutrients can be used to treat hair loss. While the yolk may have been vilified for its high cholesterol, it also contains fatty acids that make hair shiny and manageable. Fatty acids have also been proven to fight dandruff, psoriasis and flaky scalp. In need of a good conditioner? Why not crack an egg on your head?

Whole

Grains:

Found in foods like whole wheat bread and whole grain cereals, these healthy grains are full of healthy hair ingredients like zinc, iron and vitamin B. They also contain copper, which helps maintain the structure of the hair and magnesium which promotes re-growth.

8. Oysters: Not only will they make you

feel sexy, but they’ll make you look sexy as well. They contain a smorgasbord of hair vitamins including zinc, iron, copper and vitamin B12

9. Low Fat Dairy:

Everybody knows the calcium found in dairy is good for bones. It’s also a vital mineral for hair growth. Furthermore, dairy also includes whey and casein, two proteins that are excellent for a healthy mane.

10. Carrots: These contain vitamin A, a key ingredient for a healthy scalp. A healthy scalp is what makes the difference between dry, brittle hair and shiny, supple tresses.

WILDE’S WORLD Hot back from my holidays and here to give you some of the most bizarre and zany news stories from around the world. Enjoy.

How to spend a penny A Utah man has been cited on a charge of disorderly conduct after paying for a disputed medical bill with 2,500 pennies. The Deseret News of Salt Lake City reports Jason West went to Basin Clinic in Vernal on May 27 prepared to dispute an outstanding $25 bill. Assistant Ver-

Most embarrasing dad

A US teenager suffered the embarrassment of his dad waving him off to school - in a different fancy dress costume every day for a year.

Dale Price, from American Fork, near Salt Lake City, waved his son off in costume every morning of the 180-day Utah school year, reports the local Daily Herald. It started when Mr Price and wife Rochelle thought it would be fun to embarrass their

www.tenerifeweekly.es

15-year-old son by waving to him as he boarded the bus on the first day of the year. Mr Price said: “Later I overheard him talking to her, saying, ‘Mom, don’t let Dad go out there again.’ What a challenge.” For the next 179 school days, Price waved goodbye to his son dressed as characters including Elvis Presley, Batgirl, the Little Mermaid, Princess Leia and Little Red Riding Hood. Sometimes, he used props - most notably

nal Police Chief Keith Campbell says that after asking staff members whether they accepted cash, West dumped 2,500 pennies on the counter and demanded that staff count them. Campbell says the incident upset staff because pennies were strewn about the counter and floor, and West’s action served “no legitimate purpose.” Police later issued the 38-year-old West a citation for disorderly conduct. That carries a fine of as much as $140 or 14,000 pennies. a porcelain toilet he once hauled onto his porch to use as a throne while reading his local paper. Rain Price said that while he initially found the daily routine “really embarrassing,” he eventually got used to his dad’s antics. “The last couple of months it has turned into more entertainment,” he told the Herald. “Sometimes the driver says “‘enjoy the show”, Rain added. “We all laugh. Everybody else on the bus learned to like it a lot sooner than I did. It wasn’t their dad dressing up like a fool.”

Birthday bash

A German teen fled her own 16th birthday party after more than 1,500 guests turned up after she forgot to set it as ‘private’ on Facebook. The girl, named only as Thessa, hid as the huge crowd - followed by 100 police officers - converged on her house in Hamburg. Partygoers held signs asking “Where is Thessa?”, chanted: “Thessa, celebrating a birthday is not a crime”, and brought birthday presents and homemade cupcakes. But Thessa was nowhere to be seen and police confirmed she “was not at home”. She is believed to have celebrated quietly at her grandparents’ house. Thessa had only wanted to ask a handful of friends over to her home

but mistakenly put the event to ‘open’ and 15,000 people confirmed they would attend. When her parents found out, they made her cancel the party, told the authorities what had happened and hired a private security firm to protect their home. Despite public announcements across the city that the party had been cancelled, 1,500 teens and young adults still turned up on the street in front of Thessa’s home. Police spokesman Mirko Streiber said: “We had cordoned off the house, some 100 police were on the ground, four of them on horses - but that did not keep the kids from celebrating.”

Have you forgotten something?

Doing a stupid thing is not as silly as when you tell someone what you have done. I have just been away on my hols and a very good friend said she would take me to the airport. I waited until the said time and the person in question arrived and picked me up. Arriving at the airport my friend made a comment about being here before and I paid no attention to it until, on my return another friend told me that my lift had originally set off to the airport and arrived without picking me up. She had been too embarrassed to say to me as I might name and shame her.....shhh your secret’s safe with me.

COMMUNITY MATTERS

June 10th - June 16th 2011

Community Matters Last Sunday night saw a crowd of over sixty people attending church at “The Mett Bar” in Starco, Las Américas. This is the fifth month that the church has moved out of Costa del Silencio to take the message to the night-life centre of Las Américas. The evening consists of all the elements of a normal Sunday evening service at Silencio with the music and worship led by the Silencio Church band “Bought With A Price” This month Jade told her story of how she arrived on the island seven years ago in a mess and how her life has been transformed since she gave her life to Jesus. She has worked in various countries helping women who have been trafficked into prostitution and has spent the last few winters managing the night shelters in her home town of Newport. She is currently working at the Living Room. Jade’s story was followed by a message from Pastor Bill Jeffery. As usual “The Living Room” Christian centre in Verónicas was open after the service for refreshments and chat. A regularly heard comment is “I didn’t know church could be like this!”

“If you’re heading in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns.” Profile on Silencio Church Silencio Church (Costa del Silencio Christian Fellowship) opened its doors over ten years ago in the lower level of C.C. Coral Mar. The church which was started by Christians who lived in the area has grown until the existing building is stretched to the limit on Sundays with well over a hundred people attending. The church is family-friendly. Services have crèche facilities where parents can leave the children in the care of helpers who have been police checked. If they prefer, they can stay with their children and still watch and hear the service. Children attend the beginning of morning service and then go off next door to Sunday School (known as Sonseekers). Tuesday morning sees “Little Angels” mums and tots group where parents can enjoy a coffee and chat while the children interact and play with a large variety of toys. Teenagers have their own special meetings each month too. At the other end of the scale another new event is the morning for the retired – “ARK” (Active, Retired and Kicking) which meets one Thursday a month.

Although Silencio Church may have many activities, the emphasis is always on the Bible, the Word of God. This is presented through the preaching by the pastor or visiting speakers, through singing accompanied by modern music or through the stories of local people whose lives have been changed for the better since they committed their lives to Jesus. They say that prayer is the power house of any church and in Silencio they meet to pray on a Friday morning at 7am before going to work. The church also practises the gospel message by being available to people in need in the community both practically and spiritually. Bill Jeffery has been pastor for eight years and is well known in Silencio both in and out of the church. He will normally be found in

Coral Mar Square supporting his favourite football team – Newcastle United. Recently the church had standing room only for the memorial service of local entertainer Stevie B. However, Bill would rather have you come to a regular service which you will find different and uplifting. Why not go along to Silencio church on Sunday and find out for yourself! If you are not in Silencio area, don’t panic - there are other good churches in your area. Take a look at the list below.

USEFUL INFORMATION

June 10th - June 16th 2011

HOROSCOPES Aries - Mar 21-Apr19

There could be something volcanic about your emotions, passions and desires over the next few days. Today you could use any excuse to party - or to fix up meetings. This excess mode is likely to go down well with those born under Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces especially). Virgos and Capricorns may feel the need to have buckets of sand available to put out some of this fire if you get out of control.

Taurus - Apr20-May20

You may well be on the verge of pulling off a financial deal. It might even be that you know you’re due a rebate. The feeling that a tide is working in your favour - and awareness that colleagues (especially those born under Scorpio) are doing all they can to assist you, could put you in party mood later. A celebration (Jupiter moves into your sign tomorrow!) might seem a good idea.

Gemini - May 21-June 20

The fact that others are pushing you - and that you share some of their excitement could cause you to take more risks than usual. Physically you could over-reach. If health is, or has been, a problem, then you perhaps ought to take care. Discussions about travel are likely. Arrangements for some sort of field trip might benefit from a Capricorn’s careful attention to the detail.

Cancer - June 21-July 22

Perhaps only a brave Capricorn will suggest that you’re tearing around in too much of a hurry or over-worrying. You perhaps need things to do though. True, you could accomplish a great deal. However, in being persistently busy and anxious, you could stress your physical system. To avoid Cancerian tummyache, you perhaps need to factor in sanctuary time: preferably near water.

Leo - July 23-Aug 22

Instinctively bonding with an item that has just the right touch of luxury could result in you spending a little more than usual. True, you may be purchasing a gift. The point is that you could be especially alert to items that enhance the world (both for you and others). Interestingly, friends may be even more aware than usual of your need to feel special. A Scorpio or Aquarius might even treat you.

Virgo - Aug 23-Sept22

Long dormant feelings may be about to surface. True, at one level this might simply be a craving for hot, spicy food. At another level, your curiosity could be so aroused that your investigative talents surface. It might also be that you get hot under the collar about domestic arrangements. For some, a valuation could lead to the decision to make a sale to release much-needed cash.

Libra - Sept 23-Oct 22

Financial matters could dominate thinking: perhaps through arranging a loan, finding the best value tickets or securing foreign currency. Levels of excitement may be high: and linked to activity going on either in a lawyer’s office, a place of further education or with someone who’s travelling. Your world seems set to expand.

Someone close is probably the best person to help unravel a financial muddle. It may be that a document is confusing. It’s possible too that you’re making a situation more complex than it need be. True, you may feel compelled to display deep emotion to make it 100% clear what you do and do not find acceptable. Away from all this, your thoughts could turn to someone long-distant whom you wish were nearer.

Sagittarius - Nov 22-Dec21

The bon-viveur within may need to come out to play. You might like to try a different food or wine. You could also find yourself strolling near a place of great history or education and determining that a return visit will be necessary: next time with someone special in tow. Romance and romantic places could be high on your agenda too.

WEEKLY

Capricorn - Dec 22-Jan 19

Contact with someone who could be viewed as a ‘bit of a dark horse’ is likely. It’s possible that through their network you may find solutions to a recurrent problem. A small celebration might be in order when it becomes clear that someone close is on the threshold of a deal that would really please them - and which would benefit you both.

Aquarius - Jan 19-Feb18

Perhaps because a reunion is planned - or because you will be involved in a group gathering over the weekend, a shopping trip may be called for. The weight or bulk of an item could cause a problem. You might need assistance (from a Scorpio?). Quite separately you could agree to involvement with a recycling project.

Pisces - Feb 19-Mar20 Energy levels may be increasing - and mostly because you now have what you know to be valuable information. Some adjustment to dates for a meeting or trip may be made necessary by a student or someone who’s presently travelling. It may be that there’s good news. It’s equally possible that you’ll enjoy a ‘Eureka’ moment and solve a problem.

PETS’ CORNER

June 10th - June 16th 2011

Welcome to Tenerife Weekly’s Pets’ Page

Pets’ Corner

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

A SHELL Shocking New Addition! This week saw the arrival of a new 4 legged friend into our household. Not my usual furry variety, however, instead it was a turtle needing a new home. I will admit to not knowing a whole lot about these funny creatures and so set about doing research. When the little chap came to us we didn’t even know what he was, then during the course of my weekend it was revealed that he was a Water Turtle. Diet was somewhat of a mystery to me and I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised to discover that they enjoy such menus as fish and meat as well as the obvious salad cart. Also a pot of pellets was purchased to provide all round nutrition and vitamins. Unbeknownst to me, they can only eat whilst in water as otherwise they cannot swallow. So our little, wrinkly friend began to settle in, now possessing a pool of water to swim in, somewhere to sunbathe, the correct diet and 4 very confused dogs who watch from afar and are yet to figure him out. I will be honest, turtles don’t do a lot, but they are so endearing. Watching him manoeuvre his way in and out of the water and tuck his head in so far that you can only see 2 tiny nostrils is actually rather entertaining. I was fascinated to see the speed he could pick up when on land. It wasn’t as clumsy as I imagined and he can suss out a water source from quite a distance. Luckily, here in Tenerife, we have almost perfect weather conditions for these guys. Long, sunshine filled days and plenty of heat with the option of shade being a must. I didn’t realise just how susceptible turtles are to illnesses brought on by incorrect conditions and so I have endeavoured to provide just what he needs to thrive. You frequently see turtles in pet shops over here and sadly even there they are often not kept as they should be, so is it any wonder that people buy them and then experience problems? I’m over the moon with our new addition and just hope that I can give him many long years of happiness to come.

GARDENING

June 10th - June 16th 2011

The Tenerife Gardener How To Turn Your Terrace Into A Vegetable Garden If you have limited space in your apartment but enjoy the thrill of gardening then this is still possible with a terrace vegetable patch. Even with a small space you can still grow your own vegetables, herbs and fruits. In these times of financial difficulty this can be an excellent and rewarding way to save money and have fun too!

Tips & Warnings • Most plants can be grown on your terrace in small quantities but certain crops perform better than others, although this will vary depending on where in the world you live. Suggested varieties include tomatoes, chillies and peppers, courgettes, salad leaves, lettuce and

most herbs. • All can be successfully grown throughout the year, giving you excellent fresh vegetables and leave plenty for ingredients for chutney or canning for the cooler months. • Always check the seed packets for growing instructions as some plants prefer different light or soil conditions.

1 First begin with germinating your seeds, this should be done in small shallow trays, however if you recycle you could use old egg boxes or yoghurt pots. Place a couple of inches of dirt into the tray and make little holes with a pencil or your finger to put the seeds into then lightly cover them with earth and water. If the weather is still cold you can keep them indoors or place them on the terrace but cover them with plastic to

protect them from the cold. Remember to water them regularly.

2 After a couple of weeks the seed-

lings should have grown enough to be replanted into larger pots. Again if you are keen on recycling you can use plastic bottles cut in half or large food tubs. Place some stones in the bottom of your pot to aid irrigation then cover with more earth and pat down. Now carefully pick out a couple of plants from you trays and transplant them

into the pots. Making sure they are firmly pressed into the soil and once again water. 3 When you are growing tall plants, like tomatoes, you will need to support these with canes or wooden stakes to prevent them falling over. Alternatively you can tie them to the railings around your terrace using string or food bags twists. Remember to water your plants regularly and occasionally give them a little plant feed.

Welcome to Tenerife Weekly

Trade Counter

Get Screwed Up! Some people claim to be so inept at DIY that they cannot even put a screw into a wall to hang a picture from! Well, here we will explain how to & more. We need to know when, where & what type if fixing to use;

DIY Rating

Some jobs are easier than others. So to give readers an idea how easy or difficult a job on the Trade Counter is we are giving you a rating guide with the articles we show. Even your Granny could do it! Fairly easy.

Solid Walls Rawlplug & screw are used for most types of basic support fixing. For example, hanging that picture or brackets for a bedroom shelf. Use rawlplugs when the wall is solid & not hollow, cavity void or timber stud construction. Check the surface of the wall by tapping it. You will soon hear the difference in sound between a solid & hollow wall type. Once you have decided it is a solid wall make sure that the rawlplug, screw & masonry drill bit all correspond. There will be a number on each item. Just make sure they match in size i.e. 5, 6, 7, etc & you will have no problem. Before drilling any holes make sure that there are no electrical cables or water pipes nearby. You can buy detectors for this purpose, but a dose of commonsense will help you stay away from these hazards. Do not drill above or below sockets & stay a healthy distance from water pipe entry points. After the hole is drilled push in the rawlplug flush with the surface & in goes the screw, tightening until it bites. Do not overtighten.

Hollow Walls/Ceilings There are special cavity plugs for wall & ceilings with voids past the surface. They open up inside the space behind & help spread the load away from one small focal point. It will tell you on the packaging what load each particular cavity plug will hold. Again, make sure the plug, screw & drill bit all correspond.

Tiled Walls

Let’s start concentrating Need to be on top of your game! You had better call in the professionals!

Tiles are usually laid on solid walls, but can be laid Power drill on hollow walls too. So once you have determined which type of wall you have you need to be able to drill through the tile without damaging the tile itself. You can buy special drill bits shaped for drilling through tile surfaces alone, but if you do not have one simply use the correct size masonry drill ensuring that the hammer mode of the drill is turned off. Then gently, using the drill mode alone, start to drill the point of entry you need. Do not push to hard & make sure the drill bit is fairly sharp. You will soon cut through the glaze of the tile & then the tile itself. Once you are through the thin layer of tile, turn the drill to drill & hammer mode & carry on as normal for solid or hollow wall.

Stronger Fixings/Heavier Weights When heavier weights or stronger fixings are needed we use either coachscrews or rawlbolts. You drill the same for the holes, but the fixings are much stronger. You would use these for fixing posts & roof timbers to walls etc.

All the items mentioned here can be bought from any good ferretería If you have and questions or comments please email: tradecounter@tenerifeweekly.es www.tenerifeweekly.es

TECHNOPHILE

June 10th - June 16th 2011

TECHNOPHILE Welcome to this week´s Technophile, the little corner of the Tenerife Weekly where we attempt to put the world – at least as far as your technological equipment is concerned – to rights! Readers of last week´s column might remember that reader Daniel sent us the following email..... “I bought my laptop 5 years ago and over the last couple of years it has just got slower and slower. I don’t know why that should be as I am just using it for internet and rarely install new software on it. I use AVG antivirus and scan regularly so I don’t think its a virus.” Previously, we suggested that the two options were to backup files and reset the laptop to factory conditions, thus completely clearing all the accumulated junk – indeed we went into some detail about how to do just that – and the second option was to perform some simple first aid, perhaps not just as effective as the full reset but quicker, easier and less daunting to the novice. It´s the option of first aid that we´re going to look at this week. The following tips are suggested with the assumption that the operating system used is Windows XP but that´s not to say that these won´t prove useful to users of the newer versions, Vista and Windows 7. As always, remember that this is only general advice – we cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss of data. Please make full use of System Restore, which can be found by following Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Set a restore point before following each step, then you can “rewind” your computer if anything goes badly wrong. Step 1 – Uninstall any unwanted or unused programs. Most new computers ship with a number of programs which will never be used and reside unwanted on your system, taking up space and resources. Add to this the bits and pieces which you will have installed to try out, then forgotten about and you may well find quite a collection of resource hogging quite unnecessary applications. Get rid of them! Here´s how..... Follow Start > Control Panel > Add Or Remove Programs. You should now be presented with a list of programs installed on your computer with the option to uninstall these. If you´re not sure what a program is, Google it and find out. Internet browser toolbars should be a particular target as they tend not to be necessary and they do tend to slow your internet experience down. If you like using a particular toolbar then by all means leave it, but in most cases, better out than in! Step 2 - “Cleanup” your disk. Windows contains a handy little tool which will clear out some of the accumulated junk. Open My Computer, right-click the icon for your main disk drive (usually C) and select Properties. When the window appears, click “Disk Cleanup” - after a bit of thinking time, you will be presented with a list of items which can be removed – tick the ones you want rid of (usually all of them) and click OK. Job done! Step 3 – Reduce the programs which start when your computer is switched on. You may not be aware, but when you start Windows, very often there are a whole pile of programs which silently load into memory, the idea being that they will then start quicker when you need them. In many cases these are completely unnecessary and can safely be removed. While holding down the Windows key (mostly situated to the left of the space bar) press “r”. In the box that appears, type “msconfig” (without the quotes) and hit Enter. When the System Configuration Utility loads, click the Startup tab and you will see many of the “optional” programs which start when you switch on. Obviously there are certain programs which you don´t want to prevent running – security software for a start – and perhaps a driver for your touchpad mouse but most of the descriptions are fairly self explanatory. Un-tick the box beside each program you would like to put a stop to. Programs like iTunes and many others like to load at startup but they can safely go. Google any descriptions you´re not sure about and you should get a good idea if they are really needed. You can always run the Utility again and re-tick the boxes if you run into any problems. Step 4 – Use a system and registry cleaner program. This suggestion is a little more controversial, as some would liken it to cleaning your face with a brillo pad but used with a little care, this kind of program is an invaluable tool to help your system run smoothly. A tried and tested (and free) option is a download called Ccleaner (www.piriform.com/ ccleaner ) - an easy to use program which de-clutters Windows “under the bonnet”. Just be sure to set a System Restore point before you go experimenting and it should give a little extra horsepower to your system. Restart your PC when this is complete and make sure everything is working as it should be before you move on to....

Step 5 – Defragment your hard disk drive. Over time, when you are loading, saving and deleting, files can become fragmented, meaning little pieces of them are scattered all over the drive. You don´t see this – it´s all handled automatically - but as your disk drive contains moving parts, the accumulation of time required to fetch all the pieces can slow you down quite a lot! To perform this task, simply follow Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter, highlight your main drive (usually C) and click Defragment. Bear in mind that this is best performed when the computer isn´t in use and it may take some time some users choose to do this task when they are going to bed at night or heading out for some hours. Good practice indeed! So there, in 5 easy steps are some easy (and free!) ways to get that little bit more out of your laptop or PC. Next week, we´ll look at RAM memory, explain how and why more is better for performance and tell you how to go about upgrading this yourself. In the meantime, keep the questions and problems coming in, and we will endeavour to provide the answers you seek! Send any questions or comments to technophile@tenerifeweekly.es

Sony Playstation Vita Review In terms of size, the Vita will stretch the definition of ‘handheld’ as surely as it will stretch your palms. This beast will measure 182 by 84 by 19mm. That’s bigger than the PSP 3000, although the Vita is slightly thinner. You could just about fit a whole iPhone 4 into the space taken up by Vita’s screen alone. The Vita is much wider than the 3DS, so we really can’t see this device fitting in your pocket, unless you wear hilarious clown trousers. It won’t hog up too much space in a rucksack, satchel or maybe even a handbag, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the Vita is going to be something of a porker The Vita’s display looks like it will be really good. It’s a 5-inch OLED touchscreen with a maximum resolution of 960x544 pixels. That’s plenty of pixels, but there’s more to a great display than resolution -- we want to see a really bright, vivid panel. Sony has something of a problem on its hands when it comes to the screen. A 5-inch OLED panel is going to suck battery juice like a kid who’s got into the secret Sunny Delight stash. That’s not ideal for a portable device. Battery life could be preserved by dimming the display, but that’ll make for an inferior gaming experience. It’ll be interesting to see how Sony tackles the problem. On the back of the Vita, there’s a touch-sensitive area that’s the same size as the display on the front. It’ll work much like a laptop trackpad. The idea is that you poke and stroke it with your fingers while you’re playing games Sony’s also announced a pre-installed app called ‘Party’ that adds chat capability, so you can bellow victoriously at the 11-year-olds you’re taking apart. Another app called ‘Near’ lets users see which Vita games people in their vicinity have been playing, and rewards you with virtual game-related items when you check-in at geographic locations. It sounds slightly more sophisticated than Nintendo’s StreetPass 3DS tech, but will it be any fun? Mercifully, Sony has decided to give its Universal Media Disc format the Old Yeller treatment, instead opting to house its games on cards that you can slot into the console itself. They’re the same size and shape as SD cards, but we’d be very surprised if they turn out to be actual SD cards -Sony traditionally prefers to use its own proprietary formats.

Buying a car - what you should know BUYING a second-hand car in Tenerife can be a nightmare if you do not know what to do as it is not as simple as it would be in the UK even if there was not a language barrier. The most important thing to do is to ensure that the vehicle is free from debts and you should always, when buying privately, ensure that a check is made BEFORE you part with any money not even a deposit. If you are buying from a dealer or reputable garage then the cars they are selling would normally be free from debts as the company would be the legal owner and will have themselves carried out such checks before they purchased. If you have decided to buy privately and have had the car checked and find there is a Reserva de dominio on it then the car cannot, at that time be transferred. A Reserva de dominio is similar to an Embargo in so much as it prevents the transfer of the car but relates solely to Finance and nothing else. In some cases it will be that the finance has indeed been paid off but it has not been cleared off the central register. To be able to do this the person who took out the finance would have to obtain a form called a CARTA DE PAGO. Basically this is a certificate supplied by the finance house confirming that the loan has been paid in full, some companies will provide these free of charge on request but others may levy a charge and these are sometimes quite substantial up to 100 euros by some finance houses, some accept a request by phone where others will not and it all depends on the individual finance house. Once you have the certificate it must be presented at the oficina de Registro Mercantil in Santa Cruz (assuming the car

and finance were arranged here on the island). Three days after the presentation of this and of course paying them their fee, nothing is ever free here(!) the car will be clear to transfer. You may be surprised to hear that even many Spanish are unaware of the need for this certificate. This situation does not apply if the money has been borrowed from a bank as a personal loan as this will not have been registered in the same way. This is why it is important to check out a car that you might be buying off the side of the road or from someone you know. Once you have cleared this hurdle you must also check that the paperwork is in order so that the car can be transferred into your name, although it’s a good idea to do the two processes at the same time. For this the car must have a “Ficha Técnica” what is commonly known as a green card, this is the document that shows all the technical details for the car and also shows if it has a current ITV, this is shown on the reverse. It must also have a “Permiso de circu-

lación”, what is commonly known as the white card although the new ones are light green, and it must also have road tax paid for the current year, this however may not show the same name as the current owner. What you need to check is the registration number and the current year. Once you have agreed the sale you would need to sign three documents (possibly four if a third party is carrying out the transfer on your behalf). The first would be a Compra-venta (sale-purchase agreement), which needs to be signed by both the seller and purchaser and is normally dated and sometimes timed (this is highly recommended). The second would be a modelo 620 which will show both the seller and purchasers personal details, along with the technical details of the car and the official valuation along with the tax payable. The third would

be a solicitud de transmisión de vehículo (a Tráfico transfer application form.) If the transfer is being carried out on your behalf then you would also need to sign an official authorization form. You should receive from the seller (if it is an individual), either a photocopy of their passport and NIE/Green Residencia or their DNI / Residencia (the card type with the picture on it), and the receipt for the current years road taxes (impuesto de rodaje). If the seller is a company you would need a copy of their CIF and a copy of the documentation (as mentioned above) of the administrator of the company who is legally permitted to sign on the companies behalf and they will also need to sign a Modelo de acreditación de identidad para personas jurídicas. In either case they must sign a Compra-venta (salepurchase agreement) and a

fice) and of course any administration costs that may be charged by the person carrying out the transaction for you. There is no way around this and the costs must be paid so that the transfer can be carried out. This is, however, negotiable as to who pays. Once the car is in your name you should receive the following documentation, a “Ficha Técinca” what is commonly known as a green card and a “Permiso de circulación”, what is commonly Solicitud de Transmisión known as the white de Vehículo (a Tráfico card although the new ones, transfer application form). as already mentioned, are If you are buying from a light green: showing your registered car sales show- name.

Question & Answer

Question. I have a Fiat Punto 1.2 dualogic, year 2004. After buying the car just 3 months ago, I’ve started getting problems with GEARBOX FAIL coming on the display and also the gearbox warning light comes on. Also when I put my foot of the brake pedal, the display goes from D to R for a second but gives 3 beeps as if in reverse. The car drives OK and neither the dealer nor an auto box specialist can find a fault. It is now getting worse all the time, please help! Answer. I have seen a few erratic faults related to the auto transmission caused by poor earthing to the rear light clusters. The rear lights appear to function ok, but there is a very slight voltage drop on the system that causes problems with the gearbox. Remove both rear light units and check the multi-pin connectors attached to the bulb holders. If there is any possible evidence of poor connections or an overheat/burnt terminal, I would run new earth leads directly onto the bulb contact plate.

Bahrain GP cannot happen, says Bernie Ecclestone FORMULA 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has said October’s reinstated Bahrain Grand Prix cannot go ahead.

The race was due to open the season in March but was called off because of civil unrest. Last week the FIA restored it to the calendar. “Hopefully we can return in the future, but of course it’s not on,” Ecclestone told the BBC. “The schedule cannot be rescheduled without the agreement of the participants - they’re the facts.” The teams wrote to the FIA on Tuesday expressing their objections to Bahrain being put back on the calendar. The decision to reinstate Bahrain was taken at a meeting of the FIA World Council on Friday, where the vote was

passed without any objections. But it seems the FIA had overlooked article 66 of its own sporting code, which says that no amendments can be made to the arrangements for a championship after entries open without the agreement of all competitors. A senior insider described this oversight as “extraordinary”. Technically speaking, the vote remains valid, and in theory the FIA should have another vote to cancel it. In reality, though, because the FIA did not follow its own rules, the teams can simply ignore it, as the vote cannot take effect without their agreement. That means that, because the teams have formally objected to the reinstatement to the Bahrain race, it cannot now take place this year, so the event will not happen, re-

gardless of what actions the FIA now takes. An FIA spokesman emphasised that the decisions to initially call off the race in February and then to reinstate it were both proposed by Ecclestone. He also added that no-one had voted against the decision to bring back the Bahrain race at last Friday’s meeting. The Bahrain Grand Prix was called off in February because of pro-democracy protests in which more than 20 people died. However, the FIA chose to reinstate the race after

a report suggested that the country’s situation has “stabilised”. Bahrain was given India’s slot on the 20-race calendar on 30 October with the inaugural race in

India moved to a provisional date of 11 December. The teams, and the majority of F1’s decision makers, head to Canada this weekend for the

seventh race of the season where there is expected to be more discussion on the future of the Bahrain GP and the 2011 calendar.

BLACKBURN defender Phil Jones is set to join Manchester United in a deal worth up to £17m. The England Under-21 centre-half is having a medical with the Premier League champions, after turning down offers from Arsenal and Liverpool. Jones only made his Premier League debut in March last year but has made a big impact in his first full season. The 19-year-old was due to travel to Denmark with the under-21s on Wednesday for the European Championship. Jones will not find it easy to disrupt United’s first-choice centre-back pairing of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, while Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are also competing for places at the heart of Sir Alex Ferguson’s defence.

But he impressed as Blackburn ended their season with a four-game unbeaten run, which included a 1-1 draw with United and wins over Bolton and Wolves, to ensure their Premier League survival. Jones, who was born in Preston, joined Blackburn’s youth set-up in 2002, making his debut in a Carling Cup win at Nottingham Forest in September 2009. His first Premier League appearance came six months later in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Ewood Park.

United striker Wayne Rooney reacted to the news by writing on Twitter: “Phil Jones is a good young English player. One of the toughest defenders I played against last season. Can play midfield too.” He added: “I don’t know if Phil Jones is signing for us, just saying he is a good player that’s all. I haven’t got a clue if he is signing or not.” The defender has made 35 appearances in total for Blackburn but has yet to score for the club.

Rafael Nadal wins his 6th Roland Garros RAFAEL Nadal (pictured right) has won his 6th Roland Garros title, equalling the record set by Bjorn Borg.

After getting past Andy Murray in the Semi Final he met Roger Federer in the final after the Swiss put an end to the recent winning streak of Novac Djokovich. In the final, Nadal came back from 5-2 down in the first set to take it 7-5 and also took the second in a tie break. He was 4-2 ahead in the third but then came the Roger

Federer fightback to win the third set. Nadal held in nerve in the fourth set and took 6-1 as Federer’s legs began to look tired, no doubt after his demanding semi-final. After the match Nadal said that what had happened to him in this tournament in recent years is something you could not even dream. ‘I hope to continue working and to improve by tennis to continue to be in condition to win tournaments. I can only say thank you to life. I am very lucky’.

Tiger Woods to miss US Open because of injury

TIGER Woods has revealed he will miss this month’s US Open because of injury. The former world number one suffered a sprain to his left knee and mild strain to his left Achilles tendon during the third round of the Masters in April. “I am extremely disappointed I won’t be playing in the US Open [16-19 June],” Woods, 35, stated on his website.”But it’s time for me to listen to my doctors and focus on the future. I was hopeful I could play, but if I did, I risk further damage to my left leg.” Woods, who has played in every US Open since 1994, sustained the injuries when hit his second shot from under the Eisenhower tree at the 17th at Augusta. “It’s been a frustrating and difficult year, but I’m committed to my long-term health,” added Woods, who is hopeful of returning for the AT&T National,

which starts on 30 June. “I want to thank the fans for their encouragement and support. I am truly grateful and will be back playing when I can.” Defending US Open champion Graeme McDowell said he was surprised by Woods withdrawal. “To not have one of the greatest players that have ever lived [at the US Open] is massive,” the Northern Ireland golfer told Sky Sports News. “Golf needs Tiger Woods. He’s been golf for the last 15 years. His mental health is one question, his physical health is another. We’ll hope he’ll be back, but no one knows.” *If you can fit it in maybe in a little circle or some-
