Tenerife Weekly Canarian Broadcasters issue legal challenge TENERIFE’S ONLY QUALITY FREE WEEKLY NEWSPAPER

Many Canarian based broadcasters who recently applied for FM licenses are outraged at the Canarian Governments non adherence to the evaluation system which was published in an official document last year.

The allocation of frequencies was stipulated for local or regional based radio stations offering a high proportion of information and news within their programing, yet an unusually high number of these frequencies were awarded to a Madrid based pop music network. The day after this announcement, the director of the network was photographed in a high class restaurant, dining with Spain´s Interior Minister. In addition, the a Canarian network who´s director is alleged to be a

personal aquaintance of Paulino Rivero (President of the Canarian Government), obtained over 30 frequencies. Owners of media groups such as El Día, La Marca, Tenerife Weekly and many other broadcasters are currently taking the required legal steps to paralyze the proceedure in the courts. Similar cases in the comunidad Valencia have resulted in the issuing of licenses being stalled since 2007, with radio stations in those areas continuing to broadcast whilst awaiting the court sentences. Meanwhile, Qfm who legally challenged the format of the frequency allocation in 2010 along with dozens more community and non profit stations, is awaiting the case to be heard in the Canarian Supreme Court of Justice.

THIS WEEK Hello again, readers. The British Ministry of Defence has recently announced that Prince Harry is to be re-deployed to Afghanistan. Now, I’ve seen enough war films and Discovery Channel documentaries to know that you just don’t announce to the whole world what your battle plans and deployments are. Why would this be considered appropriate to divulge? It will only serve to make Harry’s tenure there untenable and also place his comrades-at-arms in even greater danger than they already face. Andy Murray gets seeded 4th in the Wimbledon tournament. I may be jumping ahead here, but there just may be a chance of winning this year. Remember when everyone camped out on “Henman Hill” for the final victory; only to have their hopes dashed? Maybe we should build a “Murray Mound” on the beach while watching the action on the many big-screen TVs that are likely to spring up in all the seafront bars! This Thursday sees the return of “Noche San Juan.” All the usual spectacle that are involved in a Tenerife festival will be on show. I remember the excitement of last year’s event. (Was it really a year ago?!) If you’ve never been to a Spanish festival; I suggest that you get yourself down to El Médano this Thursday for a memorable evening. I’ll see you there. I don’t pretend to know a huge

amount about football, but the news that Luka Modric (Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder) would command a fee of over £22m is obscene. How dare any sports person think that could be worth this sort of money? For some years now I have considered football to be a business, not a sport. But, even if football was purely a business, what sort of businessman would invest multi-millions in an asset that could be out of the game in a heartbeat? Madness. I know we’ve all heard the bleeding hearts screaming “Share the wealth!”, but (on this occasion) I really must agree with them. Belarus has just witnessed a silent protest against the economic crisis there. Unfortunately President Alexander Lukashenko has stated that he will “strike hard” against these protesters. Apparently the protesters carried nether banners, nor placards. They didn’t chant or cause a fuss at all, but yet, they were oppressed. Consider yourselves fortunate that you live in a society where freedom of speech is protected. Did anyone notice the partial lunar eclipse that passed over our heads on Wednesday night? I’ve had reports from various people with their take on this natural wonder. They range from “Amazing, it was SO red and spooky!” to “Why all the fuss?”. I, sadly, missed it. This is a drawback of being the editor of a newspaper. Oh well, maybe next time.

Local skywatchers enjoy lunar eclipse Wednesday night’s eclipse of the moon, billed in advance as one of the most spectacular for years, lived up to expectations in Tenerife, which offered one of the best viewing locations in Europe. In addition to the many who watched the process from their rooftops and gardens, a sizeable crowd followed the phenomenon directly at the Astrophysics Obervatory on Mt Teide Experts say the eclipse was the longest for more than a decade.

Victory for 23 year old 23 year old Becky Brewerton from Abergele in North Wales won the 2 0 11 Te n e r i f e L a d i e s Matchplay Championship by one shot at Golf Las Americas last Sunday.

comprehensive victory on Friday, the opening day, by beating Australian Kirstie Smith 8& 6 in the match play format. She then beat Laura Davies, champion of 79 tournaments, in the 2nd round of matchplay o n S a t u r d a y, w i t h a birdie on the 19th hole. Davies congratulated Brewerton on ‘Twitter’ telling her, ‘Keep swinging like that and you’ve got a big summer ahead’. With 8 players in the final round, Brewerton played with confidence, gaining an early advantage with birdies on the 2nd, 5th and 7th holes only missing an eagle on the 7th from 12 feet. She dropped 1 shot on the par five 9th having missed the green with her 2nd shot, but still remained one ahead at two under par on the turn. She holed a bunker shot for a birdie on the 10th, then found a bunkler again on the 11th, dropping another shot.

British woman raped in Playa de Las Americas A 19 year old British national was the victim, of a brutal sexual assault by two French citizens on Troya Beach, in Playa de Las Americas. The attack has been confirmed to one of our sources by the National Police in South of Tenerife. The incident took place at 3am Tuesday evening when another tourist discovered the clearly distressed woman wandering along the beach wearing only a bra and alerted a nearby Police Patrol. The woman told the police how she met two young men in The Veronicas Strip who invited her to take drugs. The victim decided to accompany them and just remembered that she was offered a drink and began walking toward the

beach. At one point she lost consciousness and when she woke up she realised she had been raped by one of the men. Although she tried to escape, the attempt failed as she was overpowered.

The young woman believes that they put some kind of sleeping pill in her drink. When the police arrived she was still holding in one hand the identity card of one of the sex offenders, which they used to “cut” the cocaine they snorted. With

the information contained in the identity card, the agents proceeded to arrest S.I.R.M and his companion at an address in Costa del Silencio. The victim was admitted to a health centre in southern Tenerife, while the case was referred to the court in Arona.

However she recovered by sinking a 7 footer on the par 3 13th. Her tee shot on the 14th landed behind palm trees, and her 2nd shot flew the green. She then played a superb chip to 5 feet and h o l e d t h e p u t t f o r p a r. Having dropped another shot on the 15th, she then putted for a birdie on the 16th from 35 feet and completed her round with a birdie on the 18th. There followed an anxious wait for Becky as Ciganda and Garrett finished their rounds. However with Cigandas second shot finding water and Garrett missing a 15ft birdie putt, it gave Brewerton victory and the €40,000 first prize. Brewerton said: “It’s funny: I had great memories when I got back to the course. I remembered all the holes straight away’’.

The Canary Islands Authorities owe 451 million To the self-employed ACCORDING to the president of the Independent Workers Association (ATA), Lorenzo Love, The Canary Islands government owes 450.7 million Euros to the self employed, who have also paid in advance 29.8 million in concept of General Indirect Tax (IGIC). The overall debt in Spain is estimated at 14,000 million Euros. Across the country, self-employed workers have paid 1.638 million in VAT. “We pay that money when we

make invoice, not when we cash it” said Love

In Spain, the average payment time by the autonomous government is 170 days. In the Canaries 1 out of 4 people do not get paid before 1 year. 60% of the professionals in the archipelago suffer, directly or indirectly, this public debt. “It is we, who are funding the government, and not vice versa,” complained Lorenzo Amor “If you add to this the lack of credit, the decline in activity and on top of that do not receive any money, it will turn in time bomb, “he warned. “Right now, governments

are destroying economic activity and employment,” he said. “The main responsible for job losses and selfemployed businesses is the government itself,” reiterated Amor “Their debt is causing many people to become unemployed” added the president of ATA. Lorenzo Amor stressed that the serious problem that now affects the self employed is that “there is no internal demand, no activity, nothing gets sold, and there is little economic activity.” On top of that, he added, “there is general distrust by consumers.” Regarding cash flow, half

of the self employed in Canary Islands are being denied credit. “Only one in four gets a loan without many problems,” explained Love There are currently 105,000 registered self employed in The Canaries. “It is true that there has been a slight break,” admitted the manager of ATA. “Compared to last year last year and up to 31st of May the number of self employed people rose by 45%” However, he said, “casualties are still very high.” On average, a self-employed person, who does not employ anybody else,

pays around 500 Euros a month in Social Security and taxes. This does not take into account the activity expenses. One of the latest additions to the special scheme for self-employed is the right to unemployment benefits, which became effective on the 1st of November of 2010. The self-employed (voluntarily) have until the 30th of June to benefit from the system. In Spain there are 650,000 self-employed out of work (20% of the total), of which about 20,000 are from the Canary Islands (in a similar percentage).

Those interested in claiming unemployment benefits should contact their ‘ Mutua de Accidentes de Trabajo y Enfermedades Profesionales de la Seguridad Social. The self-employed can get benefits for a maximum of twelve months. This depends on the contributions made in the 48 months prior to the claim. To qualify, 12 months out of the 48 must have been worked uninterrupted and immediately before the cease of the activity. The government has also introduced improvements to the deadlines for those who have reached sixty.

ACCORDING to airport authority AENA as a whole Canarian airports recorded almost 2.5 million passengers through

arrivals and departures last month. The actual number of flights was on the up to nearly 27,500 marking a three percent increase when compared to the same period last year. Broken down, it was Tenerife South that boasted the largest increase in traffic of 22.1 per cent and 18.8 per cent respectively, giving hope to the bumper summer as predicated.

Authorities warned that another homeless person could die if not given a place in an institution A HOMELESS disabled man called Santiago from Los Cristianos was taken into hospital due to serious illness but was discharged to face the streets once again a few hours later. A spokesman from a local charity dedicated to helping the homeless has voiced his concern that Santiago’s situation is deteriorating and has asked for action to be taken to avoid his death. The charity has called for help

through the local newspaper “Diario de Avisos”, and wants admitted in one of the shelters run by local authorities. On Tuesday he was admitted to a hospital in the South of Tenerife, because he was suffering from a haemorrhage, aggravated by vomiting and an exacerbation of his respiratory problems as well as gangrene in the only leg he has left. The Platform for the dig-

nity of homeless people denounced that due to his failing health conditions, Santiago was transferred to La Candelaria Hospital in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where the emergency doctors wanted to discharge him and send him by ambulance to Los Cristianos port, where he sleeps. The association is taking the appropriate steps so Santiago, also known as “The Captain”, don’t have to go back to the streets, “where he would end up dyeing in

an undignified manner as his case is similar to that of Manuel Ramón; another homeless person who died in Santa Cruz a few months ago to the apathy of our institutions” They have started a campaign and are sending letters to the Canarian Government, Cabildo, Arona Council, Government Subdelegation and the Ombudsman to ask for Santiago’s admission in a shelter for people with chronic diseases.

The price of housing has reached rock bottom according to the Bank of Spain

New Commercial Centre Must Be Special

THE commercial centre of Los Cristianos needs to be in tip-top shape to satisfy tourists and encourage newcomers diverted from Egypt and Tunisia to keep coming back. That´s the view of Carlos Magdalena, president of the business association known as La Zona Comercial Abierta de Los Cristianos which was formed one year ago. The group represents 500 small businesses in the area (80 more than the original target) and run by people of ten nationalities.

In an interview with Spanish newspaper Diario de Avisos, Sr. Magdalena said the commercial centre of Los Cristianos had to offer as much as possible to tourists and local people alike. The area covered by the association stretches from the Arona Hotel to the Playa de las Vistas and to Avenida de Suecia to the sea. Mr. Magdalena said the centre of Los Cristianos was a very special zone and had to be treated like one. It needed as many services as possible and diverse facilities to attract and keep

THE General Director of The Department Research at the Bank of Spain, Jose Luis Malo, has said that the price of housing has reached its lowest price and that a recovery is imminent. According to Malo there is just and adjustment phase to go through before the increase in prices becomes apparent.

During a meeting at The Institut d’Estudis Catalans (IEC), Malo de Molina analysed the reasons that led Spain into the economic crisis and how the measures taken by the government have affected the economy. In his opinion, the housing market in Spain is regulated more on the basis of the amount of property offered than on the prices. He also pointed out that the excess in building has ended and that the excess of unsold property has reached its peak.

“Time is also part of the solution to the Economic crisis”, he added In this respect, he said that it would be impossible to grow if the austerity measures implemented by the government are not continued and he added that the benefits of this policy will no be apparent in the short term. According to Luis Malo, the Spanish economy will take 2 to 3 years to start growing again. He also noted the lack of competitiveness against

other European countries, especially due to common monetary policies and taxation. Since the currency cannot be devaluated the General Director thinks that the best way to compete is to make the same products at lower prices. Molina has predicted that “the future does not rely only in the tertiary sector”, A return to the Spanish manufacture economy is necessary and to improve education “The biggest failure of the country “he complained.

tourists and shoppers, to encourage them to return time and time again and to safeguard the future of the businesses within it. Matters which the association would like addressed include: • Proper adherence to street sales and cutting out harassment of people by “travelling” salesmen, time share touts or excursion reps. • Improvements to the façades of some of the properties in the zone which visibly need repairs. • A better street cleaning service with more litter bins. The association would also like to see a greater police presence to deter potential pickpockets and tourist information kiosks.

The majority of visits were routine, with less than 2% needed because of customer complaints. Officials are encouraged

by the steady increase in the number of premises now obeying the new regulations, which has risen from 69% in January. Health officials have also confirmed that cigarette consumption is down by 30%. An estimated reduction in serious heart attacks

The port of Garachico delays its completion date until spring 2012 THE port of Garachico should be completed in spring 2012 , said José Heriberto González, the deputy acting planning officer on the project. The project should have been complete by the end of this year. He attributes this delay to the damage caused by shipping during the storm of October 10. At the time of the storm it was expected to delay works for two months. This is without the delays typical of works of this size. The project budget is around 35 million euros. José Heriberto Gonzalez

insists that the works will be completed in the first quarter of next year, provided that no setbacks arise. Also, this delay will affect the provision of services of the maritime infrastructure for the management of sports and the mooring to the pier. The General Plan, which is awaiting publication in the Gazette de Canarias (BOC), pending the resolution of the corrections required by the Commission of Planning and Environment of the Canary Islands (Cotmac), lay down guidelines for urban development coupled with the future work of the marina and fishing port.

government has asked the regional body for an extension of the deadline for submission of formal corrections of the document, because the Litigation Division of the Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Canarias (TSJC) rescinded an agreement on urban planning. José Heriberto Gonzalez warns that funding for additional works of the port is vital to provide content to the application, such as the layout of the access roads which are essential for communications by lorries. This would avoid traffic going through townships, or through other road networks also highlighted. The port of Garachico, from the technical point of view, consists of a breakwater 600 meters long. Inside the port area is home to the marina and fishing areas, separated by a central dam of 100 meters. The moorings will be attached to the aforementioned major dam, and are designed for larger boats, fishing and tourist use, as well as for the docking of a ferry ro-ro (roll on / roll off) ramp.

Noche San Juan: Night of Fire and Fiesta ON the night of Thursday the 23rd of this month, the coastline of Tenerife will ignite with bonfires, fireworks, barbecues and midnight dips in the Atlantic, as Noche San Juan is celebrated. This traditional party dates back to pagan times, where the shortest night of the year was regarded the most sacred time, involving sacrifices and magic.

These days, the event is celebrated by families and friends getting together in the evening, and partying through the night around their bonfire, throwing a piece of paper into the flames at midnight, jumping over the ashes three times, and then cooling off in the sea. Every year, El Médano, with its large, natural beaches, has been the

focus for these fiestas in the South of Tenerife, and this year, a party has been organised with a special welcome to tourists and ex-pats.

“Night of Fire” is a free entry party with live music, DJs, fire dancers, percussionists, laser shows and much more. The live music kicks off

at 9.30pm, and the party will go on until 4am on the beach front of Playa Cabezo. Beers will flow at just 1€, and snacks will cost between 1 and

3 Euros, making this a very affordable event. Taxis are available all night at the main Plaza, just a few hundred metres from the event.

La Orotava (Corpus Cristi): Over 50% of the central tapestry at The Town Hall Square is ready Between 50% and 60% of the tapestry at the Town Hall Square in La Orotava has been completed. This peculiar carpet is made with natural sand from El Teide National Park and it is a tradition for the celebration of the Corpus Christi explained the project director, Domingo Expósito.

In particular, He said that his team was expected to finish the right side mat on Wednesday while the left is estimated to be completed in a week and a half time. Both motives have the same background as the middle, but they have used neutral colours. This, along with the halo of white light that surrounds the figures, creates an unreal and abstract feeling. Also today, work will begin in the latter, which measures, like the two sides 7 x 8 meters. The three rugs represent the image of Jesus at important and dramatic moments of his life. In the middle there will be the crucifixion, taken from a work by Diego Velázquez in 1632. The left carpet will represent the pain of whipping, while the right will represent Christ

mercy. Expósito said that the method followed by his working team is not to do bit by bit, but to work on the whole project at the same time, always depending on the availability and effectiveness of each of its members. In fact, he said that currently there is four permanent staff, including himself, doing shifts from 09.30 to 21.30, with an hour and a half lunch break. Other two people only come in the morning, as they work in the afternoon and the rest do the reverse. On schedule The director said that progress is on schedule and, therefore, unless some unforeseen last minute problems, the carpet will be ready on the evening of the 29th June to ensure that the next day, Corpus Christi, can be enjoyed by residents and those who come to La Orotava to see one of the highest expressions of ephemeral art.

Vilaflor

Vilaflor’s position within Tenerife (left)

Dear readers, we continue our journey through the municipalities of Tenerife. This week it is time for a mountain gem waiting to be discovered, so close to the buzz and noise of the South of Tenerife tourist resorts and yet so unknown by many people. Peace, tranquillity and history: Vilaflor is a fine example of the future trying to hold on to the past. A mountain municipality like no other in Spain. Nestled in the foothills of Mount Teide in the centre of Tenerife we can find the highest town in the whole of Spain; Vilaflor de Chasna. This small, emblematic place is famous for its pure air and pleasant life, and since the sixteenth century has been the destination for many visitors from different parts of the island to enjoy its privileged climate. The town of Vilaflor is at an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level, making it the highest village in the whole of Spain. The municipality is home to some 2,000 people and the main town is located in a small valley. Being south facing, the sky has a great clarity; you can see many stars, like Acruc and Eta Carinae (8,000 light years away). It is also surrounded by mountains and a magnificent pine forest (Pinus canariensis.). The area is also home to species of flora and fauna of great scientific interest. In order to enjoy and appreciate its centuries-old architecture, it is best to stroll through the Municipalities’ villages, streets and squares. We can encounter many mansions, buildings and places of interest that would transport the visitor into the past of the island such as St Peter’s Church, House of Soler, St Roque Chapel, Los Lavaderos and the Covent and Church of the order of The Bethleminta. The most important religious monument is the Church of St. Peter the Apostle, one of the oldest churches in the island, which was originally a modest chapel built by the Soler family in the sixteenth century. The other religious monument is the San Roque Chapel situated on a hill, which has a magnificent view of the town. It was also donated by the family Soler. Just behind the Church of St Peter is the birth place of Hermano Pedro, the fist Canarian Saint. He was canonised on the 30th of July of 2002. He was born on the 21th of March of 1626 and died young at the age of 4. Before his death he migrated to Guatemala, where he founded the Bethlemita Order to help the needy.

Chasna, Vilaflor: one of the best kept treasures of Tenerife. The gateway to the Cañadas del Teide.

Parque Natural de Corona Forestal

Other villages and hamlets which belong to Vilaflor are equally beautiful and pleasant. In La Escalona, Ifonche or Jama you can breathe the rural environment of a people proud of their traditions, and who have always welcomed visitors with open arms. The economy is based on agriculture: potatoes, honey, almonds, figs and grapes and also the animal farming of cattle and goats. Rural tourism is gaining terrain in the economy of the area. It is the more select tourists that prefer this mountain based tranquillity and whom enjoy the landscape, art, culture, traditional festivals, crafts, outdoor sports, mountain biking, paragliding, climbing, camping and the area’s gastronomy. The houses and hotels seem to be in sync with nature. One of the natural wonders of Vilaflor is the water; many springs produce mineral water with medicinal properties. Hikers will find numerous trails that cross the municipality where they can enjoy the flora, fauna and landscapes. These trails were used in the past by the Guanches (original natives of the Canaries) to take their herds of goats to Las Canadas (Teide) in the summer where there were better pastures. Of the fifty-six square kilometres covered by the area of Vilaflor de Chasna, thirty are

protected by The Canary Islands Natural Reserve Law, which makes Vilaflor de Chasna, a municipality of pure nature. Part of Vilaflor is located in the Parque Natural de Corona Forestal, mainly surrounded by forest and bordering Mount Teide National Park. This area houses the best examples of pine forest and high mountain vegetation of Tenerife. There are also prominent geomorphologic features (gullies, pythons, recent lava, etc.) some of striking uniqueness, including The Chasna Hat, a symbol of the municipality of Vilaflor. All these features put together constitute an area of exceptional beauty and scenic value. There is a special interest in the pines; here you can find the oldest pines in Tenerife: The “Pino Gordo” with over 70 meters in height and “Pino de dos Pernadas” with over 40 meters in hight. The trunk in both cases exceeding one meter in diameter. Among the protected areas, it is worth to mention the rural landscape of Ifonche, with its scattered hamlets and terraces, where areas transformed by human activity coexist in beauty and harmony with small nature strongholds. The landscape is surrounded by picturesque peaks such as Imoque, Los Brezos, etc, as well as the steep rocky cliffs of the nearby Barranco del Infierno We must not end without mentioning the Red Mountain Nature Monument, a very unique geomorphologic element of great inTajinaste are indigenous to The carary terest and a relevant geological landscape, Islands and are widely seen in the municifamous for its shape, contrast and beauty. pality of Vilaflor

Airline apologises for 9/11 fumble UNITED Airlines has formally apologised for accidentally re issuing the flight numbers of two hijacked planes used in the September 11 attacks. The airline said the move was ‘inadvertent’ and gave assurances that this would never happen again. Numbers 93 and 175 were mistakenly assigned to two flights by Continental Airlines, which merged with United in October. United declined to explain how the numbers found their way back onto flights. However a local news agency said flight attendants had urged the company to permanently retire them, while pilots said the move was insensi-

tive.

Flight 175, a Boeing 767, took off from Boston and was one of two planes flown into New York’s World Trade Centre. Whilst Flight 93, a Boeing 757, took off from New Jersey’s Newark International Airport and crashed into a Pennsylvania field but it was believed the hijackers of that plane had intended to strike the White House. Two other planes used in the attack were flown by American Airlines. Flight 11, a 767 from Boston, hit

Florida Teen ‘Admits’ Killing British Pair A 16-YEAR-OLD boy accused of shooting dead two British men in Florida has reportedly admitted the murder to a cellmate. The teenager has been charged as an adult with two counts of ‘firstdegree’ murder.

James Kouzaris, 24, of Northampton, and James Cooper, 25, of Warwick, were killed in a rundown Sarasota neighbourhood in April after a night out drinking. The two friends were on holiday together with Mr Cooper’s parents in the upmarket island city of Longboat Key, about 12 miles from the scene of the shooting. Shawn Tyson, who lived near the murder spot, was arrested and charged with the men’s murders. According to the Sarasota HeraldTribune, court documents show that prosecutors allege he told another prison inmate “I did it”. However, Shawn Tyson’s friend said he did not believe he was guilty. He is

also claimed to have said the only evidence against him is a set of bullets uncovered by police in a search of his home. In a recorded telephone call made in prison, he is alleged to have said “they found the bullets” and “that’s the only thing that’s going to f*** me up”. It is claimed that Tyson admitted to a friend that he killed the tourists in The Courts housing estate in the Newtown area of Sarasota. But the friend also told investigators that he did not believe him and that Tyson was trying to be “cool or something”. Police previously re-

leased documents showing they had matched bullets found in the suspect’s room with the calibre used to kill the pair - .22 rounds. To this day police remain puzzled about how the pair ended up in the rundown neighbourhood in the early hours of the morning. They both still had money on them along with a camera and did not appear to have been robbed.

Following the attacks, American Airlines retired those two flight numbers.

Joss Stone ‘Murder Plot’: Two Men Arrested

TWO men are being quizzed over a suspected plot to rob and murder singer Joss Stone after they were arrested close to her home. Officers are said to have found swords, rope and a body bag when they apprehended the pair, aged 33 and 30, near Stone’s country home. Both men are understood to have had maps and aerial photos of her rural property in east Devon. They were initially arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of having an offensive weapon and planning a burglary. But it is understood that they are now being held on conspiracy to rob and murder Stone, 24, who is said to have a £9m fortune. Her neighbours are said to have foiled the plot when they saw two men acting suspiciously in a red Fiat Punto near her property in the Cullompton area. Stone, a friend of Prince William and Kate Middleton and a guest at their wedding, is not believed to have been home at the time.

Her spokeswoman said she was aware of the arrests and police were keeping her updated on the developments. Earlier a white sports

Mass strikes planned for 30th June A DAY of strikes are set to cause major disruption across the UK as Schools, sixth form colleges, job centres, courts and government offices are set to close on June 30 after four unions voted to strike. The walkout by up to 750,000 workers will also involve prison staff, police community support officers, immigration officials and staff at the DVLA. The latest to announce industrial action was the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) in a row over pensions and job cuts. More than 60% of those who voted backed a strike - but the turnout was only just over 30%. The walkout by the PCS union, which represents around 300,000 workers, will take place on the same day that hundreds of thousands of teachers also plan to strike. Millions of schoolchildren and students in England and Wales are set to be affected by the

walkout by the National Union of Teachers (NUT), the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), and University and College Union. More than 300,000 teachers were balloted in total, and the walkout is set to be the biggest day of action by teachers in decades. Members of the PCS union voted by 61.1% in favour of strikes, and by 83.6% for other forms of industrial action, in a turnout of 32.4%.

Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude said it would be a “big mistake” for teachers and civil servants to go on strike while negotiations were still continuing, with fresh talks planned for later this month.

FAI stays silent over Irish player punched in face claim

THE FAI (Football Association of Ireland) is maintaining its silence over allegations that a senior Irish international soccer player was punched in the face during a row at a hotel. The alleged incident happened while the team was staying at the Portmarnock Hotel in north Co Dublin in the run up to Ireland’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia in Skojpe earlier this month. A report over the weekend claimed that a wellknown member of the squad was punched in the face by a member of the Ireland team staff. “Not making any comment, thanks,” a spokesman for the FAI told the Irish Independent when asked about the incident. It was claimed that the incident happened following an argument over a guest who was at a party with a number of the players at the hotel. Players became annoyed when the guest was asked to leave. It is alleged that staff became involved in a row with

Page 14

players over socialising and the agreed curfew for the stay at the hotel, which was being used as the Irish headquarters for a number of games. Following a number of disagreements, it is alleged that the staff member lost his temper and punched one of the footballers in the face, knocking him to the ground. It is understood that he was not seriously injured and that Gardai were not called. Calls and messages to the hotel went unreturned yesterday. Prior to the match against Macedonia, the players had been staying in the hotel for three weeks during the Nations Cup tournament at the Aviva Stadium. High emotions between players and staff have been a feature of Irish football in recent years. During the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, Roy Keane famously walked out following a spat with manager Mick McCathy in Saipan over training conditions.

Parents spending average of €1,000 on Holy Communion celebrations A SURVEY carried out by Ulster Bank has found that parents spend an average of €1,000 on First Holy Communion celebrations.

Meanwhile, children making their communion receive an average of €468 in cash gifts from family and friends - half of which they tend to save. Almost 60,000 children made their Communion this year, placing €27.9m worth of purchasing power in the hands of young communicants, who have a combined estimated €13.3m in savings accounts or piggy banks. Children in Dublin receive the most money followed by those in Munster, then Connacht and Ulster. Aunts and uncles are the most generous, giving almost a third of all the money received. Bouncy castles were revealed as the number one entertainment choice, hired by almost 40% of parents, while a fifth of parents hired a professional photographer. Commenting on the findings, Jim Ryan, managing director, Republic of Ireland branch banking, private banking and advice at Ulster Bank, said: “The First Holy Communion has become one of the main family celebrations in the life of a child each year in Ireland. “Therefore, it’s not surprising to see parents investing significantly in the day. Interestingly, it is also the first time that many children receive a large amount of money, so it’s encouraging to see that with children saving almost half of what they receive the ‘savings culture’ is imbedded in people’s minds from an early age.”

Locals angry over removal of tourism landmark THE NATIONAL Roads Authority has caused controversy by removing a remarkable tourism landmark used by Tourism Ireland in marketing Ireland around the world. Locals in the Burren village of Ballyvaughan, along with Fine Gael Senator Martin Conway, yesterday called on the roads authority to restore multiple signs it has removed from a signpost at the main junction in the village. The authority said it has removed signs from the Co Clare village to comply with national policy on signage on national routes. The remarkable signpost, which carries a cluster of different signs pointing towards Aillwee Caves, Lisdoon-

varna, Fanore, Monk’s pub and the Ballyvaughan Tea Rooms, has been used by Tourism Ireland showing the extraordinary number of interesting sites and activities in this small region. The catchline on the image of the busy signpost reads “and this is what our Irish

friends planned for us before lunch”. The post also features in adverts used by banking giant HSBC and various postcards. Mr Conway said “the NRA attitude is: ‘Remove the signs and deal with the consequences afterwards’. It is not a good way of doing business. The NRA has acted in a cavalier manner by removing the signs and has scant regard for tourists.” One of the signs removed was put there by the Ballyvaughan Tea Rooms 29 years ago, and yesterday Alan Clarke, who runs the tea rooms with 16 employees, said: “The NRA removed the business’s sign from the signpost without first informing us. We haven’t even been given it back.

Mr Molloy said the environment for the group remained difficult, but he said there were indications the economy has stabilised. He said progress has been made to make BoI more focused, but factors outside its control had affected the bank. He added that losses on loans transferred to the National Asset Management Agency were higher than anticipated. Mr Molloy said the bank’s

costs had been reduced by 17% since 2008, with staff numbers down by 2,400 or 14% and further redundancy programmes under way. He said the group’s total loan book has been reduced by 20% since September 2008 and its strategy was to return to a more traditional retail structure. The AGM also heard that Bank of Ireland wanted to retain its College Green branch despite a desire by the State to acquire it. Mr Molloy said the branch had 30,000 customers and was an important part of Bank of Ireland’s bottom line.

Among the exercises conducted were weapons firing, illegal drug interception skills, and the winching of seamen from shipto-ship with the assistance of an air corps helicopter.

Flag Officer of the Naval Service Commodore Mark Mellett said the exercises will help to ensure the capability of the ships, working both individually and collectively. Lieutenant Commander Peter Twomey said the navy gets only one opportunity to exercise collectively each year, because of the range of duties the ships perform over a wide area.

The four-minute long clip then shows the ape carefully examining the bird much to the amazement of onlookers.

Spanish police website hit by Anonymous hackers THE website of Spain’s national police force has been briefly knocked offline by hacker collective Anonymous.

The attack on the site was carried out in retaliation for the arrest of three Spanish men the police claimed were ‘core’ members of the group. The hackers managed to keep www.policia. es offline for about an hour from 2130 GMT on 12 June. Spanish authorities would not confirm that Anonymous was behind the attack, saying only that the site was offline. However, a statement was posted on a web-

site linked to Anonymous, claimed responsibility for the hack, which it called #OpPolicia. The group said it had used a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) which bombards a target website with so much data that it becomes overwhelmed. A spokesman for the Spanish police said the cause of the outage had not yet been established. “A website can collapse if too many people try to access it at once. I cannot confirm the link with the Anonymous group,” said the spokesman. In its statement, Anonymous said the DDoS attack was a “direct re-

The campaign ‘A tu lado’ (By your side) aims to bring the Guardia Civil within the reach of people of all ages thanks to making the force present on social networking sites and being able to contact them

with internet-connected mobile phones. Commander Juan Salom noted “people don’t just connect to the internet on their computers anymore, but from anywhere they may be, and with this system they can report crimes they may see, receive news and locate the nearest station”. Anyone who sends a report will receive a text message to confirm that it has been received which will be valid as legal proof. For those who don’t have such modern phones, they can make complaints from the website. Users can send a text message which is received as a PDF file by the Guardia Civil so it can be downloaded and printed. The sender then receives an email which they can print and sign, which needs to be taken to the station to make it valid. Photos can also be sent to the Guardia Civil.

King of Spain awarded Russia’s State Prize for Humanitarian Achievements

KING Juan Carlos of Spain has been named as the 2010 recipient of Russia’s State Prize for Outstanding Humanitarian Achievements. The decree signed by President Dmitry Medvedev describes Don Juan Carlos as a good man with strong humanitarian convictions.

The news was announced by Mikhail Piotrovsky, Director of the St Petersburg Hermitage Museum, who said that Don Juan Carlos is the ‘symbol of a strong humanist, who uses his power and authority for good actions, which are important not only in Spain but in the entire world’. He spoke of the King’s role in bringing Spain together as a united country after it was on the border of disintegration during the Civil War. The decree signed by the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, said, ‘King Don Juan Carlos I is a symbol of concord

between the Spanish’, describing him as a ‘good man with strong humanitarian convictions’. The award ceremony is on June 12, the day when Russia marks its independence, although the King is unlikely to go as he is still recovering from his recent knee operation. It’s understood that the Russian President will meet with Don Juan Carlos in December however, when he comes to Spain at the invitation of the King and Queen. The King has said that he will be donating the 125,000 € award to the town of Lorca, and the restoration of its cultural heritage destroyed in the recent earthquake.

EU approves 210 million euros compensation for farmers affected by E.Coli outbreak THE European Union approved a compensation package of 210 million € on Tuesday for farmers who suffered losses with the E.coli outbreak in Germany. The fund is 60 million € more than the original amount which was proposed by the European Commission and will cover around 50% of the losses. It’s understood that Spain was amongst several countries which voted against at a meeting of the EU’s management committee.

The EU said earlier this week that the compensation payments will be accessible to all farmers who have suffered losses from May 26 to June 30 initially. They said it covers producers of cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, courgettes and sweet peppers. Spanish cucumbers were originally wrongly blamed for the deadly outbreak. The death toll rose to 37 on Tuesday, with the death of a two year old boy in Lower Saxony.

Government admits contacts with Franco’s family to move his remains A COMMITTEE of experts is currently studying the future of the ‘Valle de los Caídos’ – ‘The Valley of The Fallen’, the massive monument in El Escorial, Madrid, which General Francisco Franco ordered built after the Spanish Civil War in memory of the Nationalist victors. It’s also the burial place of Francisco Franco, and the government’s Minister for Presidency, Ramón Jáuregui, has admitted to ‘unofficial’ contacts with Franco’s family to remove Franco’s remains from the tomb, should the committee make that recommendation. Speaking in an interview on ‘La Sexta 2’, he said the experts would probably see it as ‘incompatible’ for the Brigade and the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency, which reportedly revealed that the cargo was bound for Spain. The Spanish Navy escorted the yacht into port in Cádiz, where Chief Inspector José Antonio Rodríguez of the Udyco central organised crime and drugs squad told the press that the cocaine haul is one of the largest made in Spain so far this year. La Voz de Cádiz said the cocaine found on board the Dalí is thought to be 80% pure and gives its street value as some 20 million €. The Dalí is believed to have set sail from a Spanish port at the beginning of January to pick up its cargo in an as yet unidentified Caribbean country before setting sail for the return journey to Spain around a month ago.

The Minister added that it’s now time for ‘an icon of Nationalist-Catholicism repression to become a place for everyone, a place of reconciled memory’. José Bono, the President of Congress, commented that what was important to him was fighting against Franco while he was alive. ‘The moment to fight against Franco is not now,’ he said, ‘that ended in 1975, when he died’.

The supervisor has fined the company 250,000 € for what is described as a ‘very serious infraction’. The irregularities occurred between March 15 and May 11 2010. The Secretary of State for the Economy, José Manuel Campa, has criticised the German economic policy towards Greece and said he did not like the involvement of the private investor. Campa claimed that the deals between Merkel and Sarkozy ‘had put the Euro zone at risk’. A meeting of Eurozone Finance Ministers has been taking place on Tuesday to discuss a possible second rescue package for Greece, which could be as large as 60-90 billion The Government’s Plan Renove for car tyres is now in operation. Only highly efficient tyres have been accepted into the scheme which offers drivers 80 € off a set of four tyres. Pirelli, GT Radial and Nankang are the only three brands accepted. Michelin, the best seller in Spain, misses out. The 80 € payments will continue until a 4.8 million € fund is empty. Any driver who is the owner of a vehicle, which must have been registered in Spain, and have its road tax paid to date, can benefit. The Ministry for Health has proposed that a message appears on beer cans and bottles, reminding the public and retailers that alcohol cannot be sold to those under age. It comes as new research shows that the average age that youngsters start to drink alcohol is 13. Some brands, such as ‘Cerveceros de España’ already publish the information The Ford Motor Company has announced the construction of two new models will go the plant at Almussafes in Valencia. It means ‘hundreds’ of new jobs for the factory which has recently pleased Ford management with its production and performance. 812 million € is to be invested in the factory which will produce the new Kuga four wheel drive and the Transit Connect commercial vehicle. Spain has lost 30% of its competiveness compared to Germany since the introduction of the euro. The claim comes from the IESE Business School, which says even Germany and France have failed to meet rules on fiscal discipline. Unit labour costs in Spain have risen by above the European average. The Minister for Employment, Valeriano Gómez, has blamed the banks for unemployment and the unions have agreed with him. He said that the banks were to blame for not understanding the real estate risks during the boom. He made his comments in response to the statement made on Monday by the Chairman of the BBVA bank who described the Government’s labour reform as ‘insufficient’. House prices in Spain are now 21.5% off their peak before the bursting of the real estate bubble in 2007. Prices in May were down 5.9% on last year and are now back at levels last seen in 2005 The missed payments on the purchase of items by instalments continues to fall, down 10% in April, the largest annual fall since January. Unpaid facturas amounting to 550 million € were seen in April, 24% lower than a year ago. The Constitutional Court has backed the cut in wages imposed on public workers, considering that the decision does not break any fundamental right. It considered the wage cuts have to be submitted to law and not the other way round.

Imperial warns on profits in Spain

IMPERIAL Tobacco has warned that profits from its Spanish business would fall by 40 per cent this year due to a price war in the country. Imperial, best known for the Gauloises, Lambert & Butler and Davidoff cigarette brands, cautioned that the impact on profits could be as much as £110m, which will include

Page 18

a £40m one-off charge from restructuring. Sales across Spain have been hit by a tightened smoking ban that came into effect at the start of 2011 and made it illegal to smoke in bars, restaurants, on television, in hospitals and near schools. Imperial built up its presence in Spain in 2007 through

the £11bn acquisition of Altadis, the world’s leading cigar-maker, Gauloises owner and Europe’s thirdlargest cigarette manufacturer with 60 per cent of its sales in France and Spain. Spain contributed profits of £268m from a groupwide total of £3.1bn in the year to last September.

Spanish debt auction goes well SPAIN has easily raised more than 5.4 billion Euros at an auction of short-term debt although its borrowing costs rose in line with fresh tensions over Greek’s grave debt crisis. The Treasury sold 3.96 billion Euros in 12-month bills in an auction that was 2.85 times oversubscribed. The average interest rate was 2.7 percent, compared to 2.5 percent at the last such auction on May 17. Also auctioned off by The Treasury was 1.46 billion Euros in 18-month bills, with demand for the debt surpassing the amount ultimately

The Bank of Spain

sold by a ratio of 3.9. In this case the average interest rate was 3.3 percent, compared to 3.1 percent on May 17. Commenting on these results a strategist from a large foreign Madrid based bank has described the re-

sults as showing a high level of demand but at the expense of higher interest rates; although he seems to believe that the Treasury is correct in emphasizing the quantity of funding as opposed to being too picky on issue prices.

Insurance - Explained Funeral plans

with Emma Swain

Funeral plans are one of those things that we don’t like to discuss, but can prove very helpful when the inevitable happens. There are many types of plans available on the market some being extremely expensive and providing elaborate funerals. I am going to talk about the type of cover available from the company that I deal with, so as to demonstrate what is available at a reasonable cost. The funeral costs here in Spain are very expensive, and from my experience a very basic funeral can cost over 3000€, this is without repatriation to the UK, so it is a good idea to be prepared. A basic funeral plan would cover the cost of the following: • Funeral stay (equivalent to the UK’s chapel of rest) • Morgue stay • Headstone (if applicable) • Cremation and an Urn • Coffin • Transport of the body within Spain There is the possibility to add cover for the repatriation of the body back to you designated country, this however does substantially increase the cost. The costing is based on the insured person’s ages, but it is usually best to have a couple or family policy, which can be modified in the event of the death of an insured person. If the insured dies in hospital all the next of kin needs to do is to give the nurse the card supplied by the company, and they will make the necessary phone call to the mainland for them to take care of the arrangements. The funeral directors normally arrive promptly and you will then be taken to the funeral parlour when you can discuss arrangements, but beware the funeral will take place much quicker than you would normally expect in the UK. If the insured dies at home or in a public place i.e. restaurant, shop, etc then the process is a lot different. The first thing to do is call 112 for an ambulance (even if you are absolutely sure of the death). When the ambulance arrives they can confirm the death providing there is a doctor on board if not another ambulance called an “ambulancia medicalizada” would need to be dispatched. Once this has been done, the police would usually attend, there would be no reason to worry it is just normal practise. At this point you can call for the funeral directors but they cannot do anything until the judge has been out to certify the death. Once the death has been certified then the process is as above, the funeral director would then take over. After the funeral, the funeral director will provide you in most cases with the death certificate and on request an international version can also be provided. The international version would be required by any foreign entity with whom you need to register the death. If you are not provided with an international certificate and you require one, then one can be obtained from the Registro Civil where the death occurred or has been registered, it is not always the same municipality as where you live. One of the most important things to remember after the death has been registered is that if you hold a joint Spanish bank account then half of the monies will be frozen.

POLITICS

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

POLITICAL INSIGHT

With Brian Harrison

Political Pacts; democracy at it’s very worst? AFTER the May 2011 regional and local elections, relatively few majorities were voted in by the public. These elections resulted in most municipalities split between two or three parties, resulting in a situation where cloak and dagger negotiations, at times between sworn political enemies, took place. Thus, administrations were formed, often

against the will of the constituents.

There are pros and cons to any political pact. For instance, a majority administration has the agility to pass through acts and projects without having to consult other parties. However, most cases of acute political corruption arise from majority run administrations, where the second in command is on the same political team, and is unlikely to question any ir-

regularities. Pacts tend to be unbelievably inefficient when anything needs doing. Every time a publicly funded fiesta or event is held, each party scrambles to gain official credit for the organisation. Projects are delayed or abandoned due to disagreements between parties. Either way, the public are the ones who invariably lose out. In some cases, we can expect sparks to fly. For

example, in Granadilla de Abona, pre-2007 PSOE Mayor Jaime González Cejas has pacted with Esteban Gonzales, PP. Apart from the fact that these two parties are perpetually at odds with one another, Esteban is a professional accountant, and for the past four years as Councillor for the economy, has efficiently balanced the books with a Swiss like precision. However, Jaime is awaiting the results of several alleged

Mayor Jaime González Cejas , PSOE corruption charges from his 2004 -2007 administration. This will certainly be a source of repeated friction. To summarise, the Canarian Government, Cabildo (Island Council), and most municipalities are now administered by political pacts. With no real end to the economic crisis in sight, we can only hope that those responsible put their inter-

party agendas and personal gripes to rest, and focus upon jointly making decisions which benefit their constituents. After all, in a little over three and a half years, those politicians will be once again begging for our votes. We should remind them now that we have very long memories......

New Mayor of Santa Cruz – I’m willing to engage in dialogue with 15M THE new mayor of Santa Cruz, José Manuel Bermúdez, is willing to talk with representatives of 15-M as long as they maintain respect for the town hall and its representatives. In an interview with press agency EFE, Bermudez

said he is unaware of the specific proposals of 15M, but said he is willing to listen. “Respect does not mean harassment” stated Bermudez, who referred to the demonstrations on the day of his inauguration in front of the town hall, where in his opinion;

some protestors did not act peacefully. Local police said the protesters were not aggressive. However, they have requested a report explaining why there were riots, what the attitude of the protesters was and how the forces should re-

act. More than a dozen 15M representatives remain camped out in the Plaza de Candelaria, and have organised further organized further demonstrations for this Sunday, starting at 6pm at the Plaza Weyler.

Hair loss in women: What causes it and how to fight back

As women age all kinds of unpleasant things happen. The body bloats, skin sags and loses pigment and hair begins to fall out beyond the norm. It is a cruel trick of Mother Nature. Luckily, in today’s world there is something that can be done about each of those issues if you know where to look. In this article we are going to focus on hair loss; what causes it and what we can do about it. Everybody loses a certain amount of hair every single day. Anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair is considered within the “normal” zone. However, if hair loss begins to double, triple, or quadruple in number, then it is time to uncover what could be causing the problem. Hair loss due to over-processing is common. Women do a lot of things to their hair; they perm it, colour it, straighten or curl it with heat and they shampoo, shampoo, and shampoo. All of these things can cause damage to the hair when done alone - combined together they can do a real number on the

Page 20

healthiest head of hair. Some women shampoo their hair every day. Unless the hair is oily, that isn’t a good idea. Shampoo contains detergent that will strip the hair of all its natural oil; for some women, what it leaves behind is dry, brittle hair that is easy to break. Since aging hair is already fragile, adding too much shampoo into the equation can really result in major problems. Of course conditioner was invented to help replenish those oils and, for the most part it works - but only on a short term basis. The better option is to switch to a shampoo that is formulated specifically not to strip the hair, just to cleanse and condition it. Shampoo is particularly bad for colourtreated hair because it strips away the colour more quickly. That often means that women re-colour too often, resulting in yet more damage. It’s a vicious circle that can leave hair broken and beyond repair. Instead, they should switch to one of today’s new colour-

fast shampoos, which are formulated to help retain colour by keeping the detergent from stripping it away. Certain hair styles or methods of styling the hair can contribute to hair loss. For example wearing tight cornrows, pigtails, chignons, French twists or ponytails that severely pull and stress the scalp can cause what is known as traction alopecia. If those styles are continued, it can result in scalp scarring, which may result in permanent hair loss. Using chemicals in the hair, as for example during colour treatments, permanents, or simple hot oil treatments, may result in scalp inflammation, which can also result in irreversible hair loss. The application of heat to curl or straighten the hair is another major culprit because it dries the hair shaft causing it to become brittle and break. However, what a woman does to her hair isn’t the only cause behind hair loss. Other things can add to the equation, one of them being hormone changes. When a woman’s hormones spike or drop, hair loss is a common side effect; women often experience the problem during pregnancy and menopause as well as during any other artificial hormonal change environment like chemotherapy or radiation. For many, hair will re-grow once the hormone issue is solved. For a few, thinning or balding may become a permanent state of affairs. Certain types of medications can cause hair loss as well. The most common culprits are blood thinners, high blood

pressure medicines, drugs used to treat heart disease, and antidepressants. For some, birth control pills can result in hair loss due to the hormone factor. For others, taking too many or the wrong kind of vitamins can hurry along the problem. Too much vitamin A in particular is something to watch out for. Illnesses can lead to hair loss, particularly those related to the scalp like fungal infections. Others include conditions such as diabetes and lupus. Sometimes hair loss is a side effect of a surgical procedure. The good news is that once the conditions are controlled, hair often begins growing once again. For a sad few, certain types of alopecia or common baldness will occur, resulting in permanent hair loss. Even the mere act of life may cause hair loss for some. That is because of daily stress and not taking the time to eat properly or exercise. In such instances, correcting the underlying problem may also correct hair loss. There are no easy answers to what causes hair loss. Discovering its underlying cause can be frustrating and depressing. However, perhaps knowing where to begin to look is a step in the right direction to solving the problem.

Sucking Up To The Boss May Be Good For Your Health

Sucking up to the boss may do more than just improve your standing in the workplace: new research says it may also keep you healthy. A recent study published in the Journal of Management Studies suggests that politically savvy professionals who use kissing up to an employer as a way to enhance their standing in the office may avoid the psychological stress that others who aren’t as shrewd about their workplace behavior experience. Specifically, the research shows that employees who use ingratiation skills in the office often neutralize feelings of ostracism that many professionals tend to deal with. An adult form of bullying, ostracized employees describe feeling like they are being ignored and excluded by colleagues. They often experience more job tension, emotional exhaustion and depression. Other research shows that stress kills. It can raise the risk of a range of ills from high blood pressure to colds and even cancer. Ho Kwong Kwan, one of the study’s lead authors and a graduate student at Drexel University, said the key lies in how well the employee is at reading the body language and expressions of their co-workers. Those who aren’t very politically savvy, he said, can actually make things worse by sucking up. “When you can sense other people’s pet peeves and expressions, it allows you to communicate easier” Feelings of workplace ostracism have long been a problem for workers. A 2005 survey of 262 full-time employees found that over a five-year period, 66 percent of respondents felt they were systematically ignored by colleagues, while 29 percent reported that other people intentionally left the area when they entered. “Workplace ostracism can lead to many negative effects, such as psychological distress, turnover rate and poor physical health,” Kwan said. “People need to fulfil their psychological needs through social interaction and when their needs cannot be fulfilled, these negative effects occur.” It is critical, Kwan said, that businesses create a culture that discourages workplace ostracism by providing training to managers and employees that enhances self-esteem, encourages effective problem-solving techniques and promotes the development of political skills. “In training sessions, organizations can give advice to their employees about how the effects of ostracism are far more harmful than imagined, and suggest that employees solve any problems through discussion,” Kwan said.

How to Lighten Your Skin Naturally As you grow old, freckles and dark sports may start arising. The skin tone changes with time and it does not remain as light as it used to be. Constant exposure to sun can also result in a darker complexion. These undesirable changes can be very frustrating if you are not ready to embrace them. The good news is that you can lighten your complexion in natural ways. Restoring the natural glow is possible in easy ways.

Prepare a Natural Skin Lightening Cream Lemon juice and egg white can be used to create a natural skin lightening cream at home. 1. Take equal amounts of egg white and lemon juice. 2. Mix these two and heat them on a small frying pan. Wait until the mixture turns semi-solid. 3. Now remove the paste from the pan and keep it inside a jar. Let the jar cool down in a refrigerator. 4. Apply the paste on your

skin and wait until 15 minutes before rinsing. It is very effective for removing sun tan. Use this cream every day until you get the desired skin tone.

Use Sun cream regularly One of the easiest ways to keep your skin fair and glowing is to use sun cream on a regular basis. Any moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or above can be used as a sun cream. In the morning, wash your face and apply the moisturizer. The layer of moisturizer on your skin will protect you from sun for a long time. It will prevent undesirable changes in skin tone. Also, sun cream prevents many other skin diseases caused by harmful ultraviolet rays. Age spots are most prominent in areas around your hands. So, remember to apply sun cream regularly in these areas. Exfoliate at Least Once a Week Get rid of dead skin

cells by exfoliating at least once a week. Exfoliation is more important if your skin is developing dark spots, freckles and skin damages due to old age. Dead cell removal naturally lightens your skin complexion. The skin will also appear brighter as you continue with this practice for over a month. 1. Take two tablespoons each of brown sugar and oatmeal and mix them with a quarter cup of milk. 2. Thoroughly stir the mixture until you get a semi-solid paste. 3. Start scrubbing your face slowly by using this paste. Be as gentle as possible. Scrubbing shouldn’t result in further skin damage. 4. When you are finished with scrubbing, rinse your face with clean water and apply a moisturizer in the end.

comfortably on the couch or watch TV Using homemade mask at least once a week will produce noticeable results in two or three weeks. Preparation and application of a homemade mask is quite easy. 1. First of all, take one tablespoon each of cucumber juice, lemon juice, tomato juice, and sandalwood paste. 2. Carefully apply the paste on all areas of your face. Now you need to wait until the paste dries on your face. 3. Rinse your face with clean water and apply moisture in the

The Power Of A Blueberry

According to researchers at the USDA Human Nutrition Center (HNC), blueberries rank hands down number one with regards to natural antioxidant content. This is in comparison to 40 other fruits and vegetables.The role of antioxidants is to neutralize free-radicals, the by-products of energy metabolism. Free radicals are responsible in part for cancer, cellular degeneration, and other age related diseases. Anthocyanin, the pigment that makes blueberries their dark purplish blue, is thought to be a key agent in the disease fighting process. Alzheimer and Strokes: In another study conducted by the USDA, it was found that feeding blueberries to elder laboratory rats markedly reduced age related declines in mental capacity. This finding alone has major implications for human cognitive decline, namely Alzheimer’s and other age related cognitive diseases. The natural phytochemicals found in blueberries have also been found to help prevent further brain damage from strokes. High Cholesterol: Try incorporating the dynamic blueberry into your daily regime. It is postulated that blueberries may reduce the build-up of bad cholesterol that contributes to heart disease. Once again, the dark pigmented skin, rich in antioxidants are thought to play a key role in cholesterol reduction. The American Chemical Society is researching the potential of extracting the health supporting compounds from blueberries for development into nutraceuticals for those who do not respond well to current statin drugs. While a novel idea, prescription drugs and vi-

www.tenerifeweekly.es

tamin supplements simply cannot replace nature’s whole goodness. Urinary Tract Infections: How about some blueberries? Rutgers University researchers have isolated yet another blueberry compound that appears to promote urinary tract health. It appears that epicatechin; another natural and beneficial component of the blueberry inhibits the ability of some types of infectious bacteria to adhere to the walls of the uri-

nary tract. Eyesight Problems: European studies have documented the relationship between the regular consumption of bilberries (the European cousin of the American blueberry) and improved eyesight. A natural preventative for macular degeneration? The studies continue. The belief that certain foods have medicinal and other healing properties has been with us since Hippocrates stated “Leave your drugs at the chemists’ if you can heal your patient with food.” Today whole foods and their potential for healing and providing one with a natural body balance is more important than ever before given our processed food environment. The powerful antioxidant properties of the blueberry appear to play a conclusive role in the prevention and delay of certain diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular issues, and the aging process. Blueberries are available almost year round and are easy to incorporate into fruit dishes, salads, and homemade jams. Of course, blueberries are a delicious snack all by themselves.

end. Regular application of a homemade mask will give you a naturally glowing skin within 4 weeks. Use Liquorice Extract A natural

whitening component called glabridin is present in liquorice extract. You can find liquorice extract at your nearby pharmacy. If not, you can search for liquorice extract on some online health stores. In the morning and evening, wash your face and apply a thin layer of this extract. Liquorice extract should be applied before you moisturize the skin. You can keep liquorice fresh for a long period of time if you store it in a cool and dark place. Some people develop allergic reactions to liquorice extract. Before you apply the extract on face, apply a small amount of the extract on your arm to test for the allergic reaction. Your skin is a part of who you are. It is one of a few things that make you unique and beautiful. Take a good care of your skin by following skin lightening tips mentioned above and remember to love it no matter what colour it is.

Dannii to make pop comeback with Kylie Dannii Minogue is set to make a comeback and she’s doing it in style!

Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard engaged

Sister Kylie confirmed the rumours by saying: "We would definitely love to do something together again, or many things in the future." The pair recorded a cover of Abba's The Winner Takes It All for UK TV show Beautiful People in 2008. They also sang on Kylie's Showgirl tour a year later. But now Kylie wants them to work together properly.

A spokesperson said: "I am pleased to say that Christine Bleakley has accepted Frank Lampard's surprise engagement proposal here in Los Angeles. The footballer reportedly planned to pop the question to Bleakley while they were abroad so that they would be engaged on their return to London this month. Apparently he wanted to "propose in the most romantic way possible".

Watch this space!

That’s the way to do it! Nicole Scherzinger rubs salt in the wound over Cheryl Cole's disastrous orange and purple X Factor outfit by teaching her a lesson on how to wear it well. A coincidence? I think not.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air could be back!

Former star Tatyana Ali has revealed that a series "reunion" is under consideration The actress said that she has been in talks with Will Smith. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aired from 1990 to 1996 and helped to launch the acting career of Will Smith.

The loved up couple have been dating since November 2009.

I kissed a girl and I liked it! Rochelle Wiseman is happily shacked up with JLS boyfriend Marvin Humes. But that doesn't mean she's always liked the male species. The 22 year old has revealed she used to kiss girls when she was younger. In an interview Rochelle said: "I kissed girls when I was younger."I can't believe I'm admitting this. Let's hope my boyfriend

isn't

in."

Robbie Williams is pants on stage

The singer, who rejoined the Take That last year, was forced to remove his trousers after splitting them during his solo set and sing in a pair of black pants!

Williams was performing fan favourite 'Let Me Entertain You' when the accident happened. However, he continued to sing and only referred to the split when finished. "I'm so excited, I split my kecks". TV screens on the stage then focused on the rip much to the cheering crowds delight. Well he did say he would entertain you!

OUT ON THE TOWN

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

Out On The Town By

The Night Hawk This week we are going to take a behind the scenes look at the man with the Midas touch, Mr. Eric Viana and I have to say a big thanks for taking the time out of his extremely busy schedule to give me his story. Eric was born in Mozambique, on 26th April 1966, after his parents moved from Portugal to run their big sugar factory. Unfortunately 8 years later due to severe unrest in the country the family moved back to Portugal. Upon their return Eric’s father went into politics together with his incredibly tal-

much so that he formed his own band at the age of 16. Although Eric continued with his academic studies and gained a place at University to study Management Science he decided that the life was not for him and left at the age of 20 to open his own restaurant. After a holiday in Tenerife

born and Viana Shows was opened. The very first show on his books was a Michael Jackson Tribute together with Imperial Russia, American Rodeo, Enigma, Brazil Carnival, Calle Latina, Billy J Lennon, KSK and the list just started growing. In the years that followed, Eric has produced many extremely successful shows including: Mamma Mia, Enigma, Brazil Carnival, American Rodeo, Alegria and then: 2008 - PINK WALL: Another milestone

ented soprano opera singer Mother and his sister who is now a University Lecturer of Philosophy. At the age of 10 Eric’s sister had a boyfriend who was a drummer and taught the young budding musician how to play and was that good that he used to go to the shows and play with the band for 3 or 4 songs and was adopted by them as their mascot and so the seeds were sown, so

www.tenerifeweekly.es

in 1990 he decided that it was time to set up in the sun and moved to the island in 1991. The next 6 years were spent working as a musician and Jefe de Animacion (Chief Entertainer) in some of the biggest hotels in the Island. 1997 - The year that changed his life forever. His son Eric Junior was

The Pink Floyd Tribute Show, Pink Wall was premiered to great acclaim from all who went to see the show and after only a few months was considered 2nd in the world next to the Australian Tribute Show such was the quality of the show and the unparalleled caliber of the musicians together with the amazing lighting effects created for the show. 2009 - ROCKSTORY Never one to rest on his laurels Eric decided to expand on the Pink Wall and created the incredible Rockstory. 3 hours of LIVE music from 3 Bands cover-

ing 3 Decades, The Beatles, Pink Wall and Queen Project. The show opened at Metropolitan, next to the Ocean Palace Hotel, and was playing to packed houses every night but it was soon becoming clear that Metropolitan was not big enough and again, ever moving forward… 2010 – ROCKSTORY Rockstory moved into Exit Palace with a change of line up, Abba, Pink Wall and Queen Project. Amazing lighting effects, incredible musicians and singers, dancers, trapeze artists, Brazilian acrobats all went to make up a 3 hour extravaganza the like of which has never before been produced on the island. The one aspect of the show that Eric is extremely proud of is that all the musicians are here on Tenerife. None was recruited from outside Tenerife such is the talent we have here on this little rock in the Atlantic Ocean.

and a changed show which is due for release in July and I am assured it is going to be bigger and better than before. Is this possible? I ask myself having seen the show many, many times but knowing Eric it will be. So watch this space for details of the opening of the Venue (he wouldn’t tell me) and details of the new show (wouldn’t tell me that either). I personally can’t wait. ATHLETICO CHENET As well as the showbiz side of his life Eric is also President of Atletico Chenet, the most important football club and school in south of Tenerife. Athetico Chenet, with its affiliations to the Athletico Madrid Organization, gives youngsters between the ages of 4 to 14 the chance to improve their footballing skills, learn new ones and are given the chance to go the mainland to play as well. At the present

time there are 150 children with the Club as well as 20 cheerleaders (the only Club at present to have cheerleads). In the short time it has been in operation the club has won many awards, as has Eric himself, and he works tirelessly to improve and upgrade all aspects of the Organization and just in case he has a bit of time on his hands he is also a member of the Portuguese Lions Club. I asked Eric how he manages to cram so much into 24 hours and he replied that support from the people around you is essential. I owe so much to my wife Erika who is my rock she is always there for me and is the love of my life. She works as tirelessly as I do and in her own right is an incredibly talented pianist and a beautiful person inside and out. I also owe a lot to Denise Bell who is the Director of Viana Shows and handles the day to day running of the Company and has built what was a small agency to what it is today handling in excess of 100 artists. What does the future hold? Who knows but you can be sure of one thing if Eric has anything to do with it you can expect the unexpected.

2011 - ROCKSTORY Yes a new venue

WILDE’S WORLD

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

WILDE’S WORLD Welcome to this week’s instalment of crazy but true news stories from around the world. We will visit Germany, Spain and the U.K but let’s start our travels in China.

Iron Man brought down by security guard A Chinese man stunned his colleagues by walking into the company wearing a set of Iron Man armour he made at home in Shanghai , Wang Kang, 25, who works for a leading telecoms company, donned the 50kg Iron Man armour around his workplace before walking out to the public area for a demonstration. “No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze as I approached, and some were

even screaming,” he explained Wang walked along the company corridors and visited different departments. Each time he visited an office, there would be a larger crowd following him around. However, when Wang and his colleagues walked to the front door of the company, the security guard stopped him, asking him to remove the armour before stepping out. While camped in a central Madrid square to protest the economic crisis one of the demonstrators was unaware he had won 1.3 million Euros in the national lottery. Lottery officials

No Charity Here Then

Fundraiser Lloyd Scott who ran the London Marathon dressed as deep sea diver last year and as Brian the snail from The Magic Roundabout this year, has been sacked for not raising enough money. He hoped to raise at least £100,000 for Action for Kids but the charity said it received only about £20,000. The 49-year-old former footballer, from Essex, has raised more than £5million for charity over the years and suffered nose bleeds and vomiting whilst completing this year’s London marathon dressed as Brian the Snail.

have said they were unable to contact the 34-year-old man from Madrid about his win all weekend. Ignacio García, the head of Serviapuestas, the website of the Spanish lottery said, “We were finally able to speak to him on Monday and he

Shocked at the decision he said: ‘I don’t think it has been handled in an appropriate manner. Anybody would deserve to be treated better, ‘The trustees made their decision just 11 days after I’d finished the marathon, ‘I hadn’t recovered fully and was unable to fulfil the potential of the event.’ Action For Kids founder Sally Bishop said, ‘Whilst Lloyd’s involvement in the marathon significantly raised our profile it did not result in any increased funding, and in fact, cost the charity several

Saving Fuel Costs

We all like to save fuel but German police were stunned to pull over a white van to find a car parked inside. Two men from Kazakhstan had decided to save on trailer and fuel costs after snapping up the silver Mazda 626 to ship back home. The men called a few pals to help load the car on its side-putting a mattress underneath to stop the doors getting scratched. Police stopped the heavily laden vehicle after seeing it lurching from side to side in Bargthheide, Germany. The police spokesman said the van and car were confiscated and the men ordered to return with a proper transporter to continue the journey. Customs would have been interesting, ‘anything to declare?’

By Dave Michaels Sitting here in the glorious sunshine of yet another relaxed, Tenerifian Sunday afternoon, I find it difficult to broach the subject of bug bears and niggles. Not because I don’t have any, far from it. More likely is the reason that the things that REALLY rattle our cage stay with us, wherever we are. We don’t need to be in a specific location, or even with the people who fire them, we simply need to let the very thought of them creep into our conscious mind to feel our blood begin to boil or our skin crawl and who wants to ruin a perfect afternoon by intentionally letting that happen? I left many of my little fire starters back in the UK, where thankfully most of them stayed, yet many years later I can still squirm at the thought of them. It is said that one man’s meat is another man’s poison making it difficult to appreciate anyone’s individual gripes as in most cases they are exactly that, individual. However, we can nearly always empathise; having been in similar situations. So let’s begin with 2 words everyone can associate with: JOB’S WORTH We have all met one at some time. The traffic warden waiting beside your car 1 minute after your meter expired. The shop keeper who insists on breaking your £20 note to take £5.01 despite the fact you have a fiver, but no more change. The cashier who closes her till, with only you left to serve, leaving you stranded with a tin of beans in one hand, and a litre of milk in the other. It is simply “more than my Job’s worth” they say with a plastic smile!!

Page 34

And so the hairs on the back of my neck are beginning to stand. I can feel the peacefulness of this afternoon ebbing away. My Particular favourite example of encountering this loathsome creature happened one quiet Wednesday afternoon, still in the UK, in the Leeds branch of a popular chain of wine bars. The conversation went something like this: Barman: Good afternoon sir, can I get you a drink. Me: Yes, I’d like a pint of diet coke please. Barman: I’m sorry sir; we can only serve coke in halves. Me: Why is that? Barman: In case you GLASS SOMEONE. Me: What!!!!? Barman: Glass someone sir. The likelihood of this happening is increased when people have soft drinks instead of alcohol so we only serve them in halves. Me: I find it more likely that someone drinking alcohol would do such a thing than someone drinking soft drinks; does it happen often on a quiet Wednesday afternoon? Barman: Not that I’m aware of, but people don’t like to waste beer, or money, so we now only serve soft drinks in halves. Now the idea that someone who was prepared to do such a terrible thing would first consider the pricing of his weapon, or the size for that matter seemed irrelevant to me but the conversation continued…….. Me: So could I have two halves of diet coke and a pint glass. Barman: Sorry sir, I can’t give you an empty glass, health and safety you see.

He continued: It’s a pity you’re not drinking today sir, its happy hour, a pint of lager is just £1.50. Me: I’m not! I’m driving! So how much is 2 halves of diet coke? Barman: That would be £4.00, sir. Me: So, just so we are singing from the same song sheet, you believe it’s more likely that I would attack someone with four pounds worth of soft drink, sober, than £1.50 worth of beer on an empty head. Barman: Company policy sir. Me: I’ll have two halves of diet coke and a pint of happy hour lager PLEASE. And I paid my money. There is no moral to this story, but the look on his face as I poured the happy lager into the drip tray and refilled the glass with my two halves of coke was priceless (or £5.50 as it turned out, but worth every penny.) On almost every Job advertisement I have ever read, the phrase “must be able to use own initiative” seems to be lurking somewhere. We live in hope! NEXT WEEK: Just let smokers smoke! and The Nanny Society

COMMUNITY MATTERS

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

Community Matters Last week we looked at some of the activities from Silencio Church, pastored by Bill and Roz Jeffery. As well as running a church full-time, Roz works in a number of areas to help those in the community with many different needs. This week I want to let Roz tell you about some of these situations.

She Europe

“..for SHE loved much...” SHE Europe is the initiative of a group of Christian women based in the south of Tenerife. We are committed to helping and befriending any woman with any need, by simply providing a confidential phone line that any woman can call and share their needs; then trying to meet

The prison ministry in Tenerife II is growing from strength to strength.

Every Thursday at 4.30-6.30 pm I go into the module where up to 200 ladies are held. Now I am meeting with quite a large group of mixed nationalities, only a few of whom speak Spanish. That fact alone means they have a harder time adjusting to their pun¬ishment than other inmates. We start off chatting about any difficulties or worries that they may have and I make notes about any practical help that I can get for them. This would include contacting family, lawyers, consulates and providing clothes, footwear and money to those who have no support. I also give them in¬formation as to how they need to pre-

pare themselves mentally, emo¬tionally and physically for freedom as most are thoroughly institution¬alised. (We also support prisoners out on bail). A school will be help¬ing me with providing educational books for those who want to further their education. I have placed about 20 bibles in different languages and many other Christian tracts and books. It’s a time of encouragement, sharing our lives and coffee. Afterwards we settle down to a bible study which I’ve been led to prepare in ad-vance and a time of prayer. It is truly

wonderful to see weekly the improvement spiritually and generally in these precious young women. Through the generosity of many people and churches, including South Tenerife Christian Fellowship in Los Cristianos, Silencio Church, the Gideons, etc, we all are praying and working to¬wards seeing God’s Kingdom come into Tenerife II.

those needs in the Name and love of Jesus. We can offer practical advice and support, are able to contact the appropriate authorities and offices needed as well as provide practical help and friendship. SHE Europe is the shared vision that some Christian women here in Tenerife have had on their hearts for years. It is a desire to show Jesus’ love to women “at risk” in Tenerife by befriending them and supporting them in practical ways. Through the confidential helpline and those willing to get alongside the women in need, we hope to see lives not just helped but transformed by the love of Jesus. We also desire to see all Christian women and their churches united across Tenerife; across language, culture and denomination differences, so that the church can be the ‘spotless bride of Christ’ she was called to be.

The English speaking patients, both residents and holidaymakers, welcome the visits and a chat. Being in hospital can be a daunting experience at the best of times and being in hospital in a foreign country can be very lonely, so many appreciate the opportunity to chat to someone in their own language, particularly as Roz and the others have gained lots of experience of the health system over the years.

PSYCHIC/HOROSCOPES

MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT

I would like to introduce myself to you, I am Liana Lovie, an International Psychic Artist, Clairvoyant and Spiritual Coach. I have worked in various places around the world including Ireland, Spain and the UK , working with all different kinds of people on their soul journey, and of course now the internet is here am able to reach clients anywhere on the planet. I was born in Essex to a family who followed spiritualist beliefs. My mother and Grandmother were both very spiritual, very psychic and both mediums. Often as a child I would sit quietly with my mother in the evenings and it would be no strange thing for me to say, “I feel someone here”. At that point my mum would ask our guides who it was and a then deep discussion would follow as I was very curious. I believed in life after death, and there being a place for all of us when we die. My curiosity led me to want to know more, I always wanted to ask, what do we do when we are dead? Where do we live when we are in heaven? And having lost a dog, I wanted to know if our dogs would be there too. All normal questions, from a child who was brought up to believe, and experience that there was indeed an-

Page 38

other life waiting for us when we are done with this one. I have always had a voice in my ear, you might ask, who is that? Well for years I didn’t question it, yes I tried to ignore it sometimes as I just wanted to do my own thing, and not always be guided. I always saw the error of my ways though, and vowed to listen again when I got the warning or guidance. I know now that this was my Guide, my Guardian Angel who has been beside me all these years. So growing up and seeing “people” that others couldn’t see, and hearing ‘voices’ that others couldn’t hear, could have put me away in a white jacket, but for the family I was born into, who encouraged and nurtured my spiritual growth. Growing up in this family with its trials and tribulations gave me the grounding to expand and grow as a person, and develop a strong soul connection to spirit. Through the years I married and had children, and always tried to live my life, like my grandmother had showed me with kindness to others being my mantra. Following my Voices guidance I moved from Scotland where I had lived since I was 12, to Ireland 6 years ago. My spiritual path really opened up then when I attended the Famous Arthur Findlay College for metaphysical studies in Stansted London. I discovered a Psychic Art Gift I had no idea I had. I found I could paint and draw spirit faces and connect myself to spirit for messages. I seemed to be on a fast forward track of self development and spiritual growth. With all kinds of spiritual teachers, mentors coming my way to help me grow in self, and

learn how to help others. Through study and experience I discovered that I am now able to see colour and feel its vibration around people. Most people would know the word Aura, which is the energy field around each and every one of us. Your Aura holds information and colour and is what Psychics see when they work with you. I have also worked extensively with mentors on my own Ascension, healing programme. I work with each client as a Clairvoyant, Spiritual Coach and a Psychic Artist, each of these I will address in the coming weeks. I work in various ways using Art and Colour and the Healing Energies which are channelled through me. I am available for Readings with a unique Soul Art picture. I have also carried out various workshops, to help people heal through their own self discovery, using various techniques and tools. So my purpose here is to be in the spirit of Tenerife and offer you a cocktail of thoughts and ideas, for you to question, absorb and be intoxicated with. I intend on introducing spirituality, in with all the “ssss” we associate with being abroad, sun, sand, sea, and sangria and will give it all new meaning. Using my past experiences, learned wisdom and Divine Guidance I invite you to check in with me each week, for a truthful and frank spiritual report on what’s happening in our lives and the world at large. If you want to interact with me and pose a question, or an opinion then please feel free to email me at lovieart@gmail. com. Please state whether you want your question answered in the Tenerife Weekly or in private. You can also find me at www.lianalovie.com. Tel: 672 994 666

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

WEEKLY 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.

Scorpio - Oct 23- Nov 21

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.

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 17th - June 23rd 2011

Pets’ Corner Is it a bird? Is it a plane? .....no, actually its a dog It is a common misconception by many that the group of Canary Islands owes its name to a favourite household pet, the Canary Bird. Whilst the pet part is true, in actual fact the islands are named after dogs. The Presa Canario, a large, handsome breed, is in fact the true meaning behind the name. Here in Tenerife we have a few native breeds but none as striking as this. Not to be confused with the mastiff, the Presa Canario shares many similarities - Broad shoulders, stocky physique and a short, sleek coat. The islands themselves were once known as the “Fortunate Islands” by the Romans but due to the large numbers of this specific breed of dog it was deemed appropriate to rename them as “Las Islas

In the autumn “Acción del Sol” will start a new campaign to provide dog therapy groups so we need volunteers !! In England and Germany dog therapy exists in hospitals, educational centres, nursing homes, day care centres and other places where people may be restricted from having pets, and where the presence of dogs is deemed beneficial in aiding peoples’ recovery. It has been proven that people can benefit physically and emotionally from regular contact with the unconditional love of a dog. In Spain and on the Canarian Islands this kind of work and therapy hasn’t gained the importance which it should have. If you have a few spare hours a week, a compassion for animals, transport and would like to be a volunteer on

GARDENING/USEFUL INFORMATION

Growing Herbs

The use of herbs on Tenerife is following in the footsteps and traditions of the original Guanche islanders, who were skilled in their knowledge of herbs. Many of the wild flowers and trees that grow here they both used as food items and for medicine.

Traditional garden favourites like Mint (Mentha spp.), Chives (Allium schoenoprasum), Sage (Salvia officinalis), Thyme (Thymus spp.) and Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) all flourish in the Tenerife garden, and Mint may actually do too well, and so it is wise to limit its underground growth by some form of container. Most culinary herbs like these appreciate the sunlight

more highly perfumed. Lavender plants are often available at garden centres or can be started from cuttings. The wild form will self-seed.

and warmth, which boost the essential oils they contain, giving an excellent flavour and aroma. Indeed, one of the joys of the herb garden is the delightful scent that the plants produce and many such as Lavender are grown for this purpose.

Basil (Ocimum basilicum), which in the UK is usually grown as a pot plant, can be grown outside and will produce very aromatic foliage. This is the herb used to make pesto sauce and it is very useful in the kitchen. Basil is a herb that

is best started from seed and this and many other herbs are generally available at gardening centres. One of the many delights to be gained from herb gardening is having a plant you have grown yourself and is fresh and waiting for you to use it. Coriander, which is wonderful in curries, is very easy to grow in a pot or in the ground. Just scatter the seed and they will usually take providing you water well. Some herbs are more often thought of as flowers. The Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) and the Marigold (Calendula officinalis) are two good examples and both will do well in Tenerife, although both need a lot of water. The Nasturtium can be seen growing wild along roadsides in the North of the island and provides a great display in spring with its pretty orange, yellow or red flowers and round shield-shaped leaves. It can be used to add colour and a hot peppery flavour to salads and the seeds can be pickled as a substitute for capers. Marigolds can be added, as petals to salads too and the dried flowers of the plant can be ingredients in a fragrant pot-pourri. As a medicinal herb it has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and has been used as an ointment for skin problems.

The island has many wild species of its own such has the Canary Lavender (Lavendula canariensis), which is often found on the desert areas here and there is also a species of Sage (Salvia canariensis). Especially in the northern parts and along roadsides you are sure to see masses of Fennel (Foeniculum vugare) with its feathery foliage, sweet smell of aniseed when crushed, and umbels of yellowish flowers. This is a herb that will do very well in the garden and grows readily from seed. Fennel tea is very popular and on sale as teabags in many supermarkets and it is also good for the digestion.

DIY Water Heater Maintenance Tips

DIY Rating

Are you hearing funny noises coming from your water heater? Does it seem like your hot water supply is less? Have you noticed that your electricity bill has increased? Well, your water heater could be the culprit.

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!

Of all the appliances in your home it seems the water heater is ignored most. That is, until it stops working. Today I’m going to give you two simple do-it-yourself tips that can help extend the life of your water heater and save you some money by reducing energy consumption. What You Need To Know First off, it’s important to know that most water contains minerals and sedi¬ment. These minerals and sediment travel throughout your water system and usually end up trapped in your tap aerator. washing machine screens, water filters and your water heater. I’m sure you’ve prob¬ably had a tap that didn’t flow well or the water started to shoot out to the side. And, if you removed the aerator you would find it was full of sediment. The same thing

happens inside your water heater Your water heater may vary from this model, but the basic design will be similar. You may have the inlet && outlets pipes undernaeth, no matter. The principle of draining is the same Inside an electric water heater scale builds up on the electrodes that heat the water, also increasing energy consumption. The reason scale builds up on the electrodes is because the hotter the water becomes, the more scale falls out of

Let’s start concentrating

DIY Tip: To make the tank drain faster, open the pressure relief valve on the cold inlet or undo the cold inlet valve slightly. solution and clings to the electrodes. So if your water heater temperature is set above 120 degrees, there will likely be more scale on the electrodes and more corrosion of the tank. There is a sacrificial anode inside the tank. It’s purpose is to allow the acid in the water to eat away at it, and not the water heater tank. But, once again, if your water tank temperature is set higher than 120 degrees, the hotter, more acidic, water will eat up that anode much quicker. And here’s the thing: You won’t even know that the sacrificial anode is gone until the acid/corrosion either eats a hole in the tank or the electrodes stop working. Also, and most obvious, setting your water heater to above 120 degrees is of no benefit to you - it only uses more energy, costing you more money. Note, having soft water is not necessarily a plus because the softer the water the more corrosion and the harder the water the more scale. So what’s the solution? 1. Lower the temperature on your water heater to 120 or below. BEFORE you attempt to adjust the temperature of your electric water heater you must turn off the electricity to the water heater. Next, consult your owner’s manual to the proper proce-

dure for adjusting the temperature. Next, locate and remove the access panel/s. After the panel is removed you may have to move aside a bit of insulation to see the temperature dial. The dial usually has a place to put a small slotted screwdriver in the middle to adjust/turn the pointer to the desired temperature. Once you have set the temperature, replace the insulation and panel and you’re done.

refilling the buckets as the cylinder empties. Next, turn off the cold water supply to the water heater. Open the hot water outlet valve and let the water drain. Once the tank is empty, open the cold water supply to flush any remaining sediment out. Let the water run for about 1 minute, then turn off the cold water supply.

Have a towel ready for any mishaps. Turn the cold water supply back on. Open a tap in the kitchen or bathroom to relieve the air being flushed from the tank and let it fill. Once the tank is filled, turn off the open tap and turn on the electricity to your water heater. These simple two action will definitely prolong the life of your water heater.

2. Drain & flush your water heater. It’s recommended you drain and flush your tank at least once a year. This helps remove debris and sediment from the tank. Turn off the electricity to the water heater (at the circuit breaker) before attempting to drain the cylinder. Connect a garden hose to or place a bucket under the hot water outlet. Have a spare bucket & friend handy to keep emptying &

TECHNOPHILE

June 17th - June 23rd 2011

TECHNOPHILE Installing memory into your PC

This week as promised, we´re going to talk about RAM memory and give some advice on upgrading yours if you need to. This is not for the complete novice and should only be attempted if you are completely comfortable doing it. Seek expert advice and assistance if you are at all unsure.

What is RAM? There are two types of memory on your computer – your hard disk drive is the long term “filing cabinet” - it can store a humongous amount of data for an indefinite period and will retain this data even when switched off. The downside is that a hard disk drive contains moving parts and in computer terms is very slow at transferring data. By contrast, RAM memory is the short term electronic memory in which your computer stores programs it is running and files you are viewing – it is perhaps thousands of times quicker at processing data than the hard drive. When you switch your computer on, the waiting time is down to the automatic loading of the operating system and countless other bits and pieces into RAM. When you switch off again, the contents of RAM memory are lost. Why is it so important to have enough RAM memory? Any modern computer is running dozens of programs all the time – most of these you don´t notice – the Windows operating system itself, your antivirus software, internet browser, even things like a routine to make your mouse pointer move around the screen when you move the mouse! And if you are in the habit of connecting your phone or your camera to your computer, these too will probably have a program loaded into RAM at startup, silently lurking and wait-

Page 44

ing for you to connect the relevant gadget and then springing into life. Every one of this programs uses up RAM – some of them not a lot and some an awful lot! By the time you load a few more programs as you work, maybe doing some typing and listening to music (and so on) the demands on the available RAM can be quite high, leading Windows to utilise a fall-back called the “page file”. This is a file (usually hidden) on your hard drive which serves as an overflow when your RAM memory is filling up. It is completely automatic but the problem arises that the hard drive is so very much slower, and so a bottleneck develops when the page file is being used. If you notice that the light for your hard drive indicates that it is constantly in use (you might even hear the physical noise of the hard drive “grindi n g away” all the t i m e ) then it is likely that you need more RAM!

How can I find out how much RAM I have? Simple – while holding down the Windows key, press the Break key. This will display the System Properties window, somew h e r e on which you´ll find the amount of RAM installed on your system in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB). 1GB is about 1000MB. How much RAM do I need? Not so simple – this depends on the operating system you are using and the demands you place on your computer. If you are a Windows XP user and do nothing but send a few emails and maybe burn a cd or two, then 1GB should suffice. If you´re burning a lot of DVDs and even more

so if you use video editing software or playing hi-tech games, you will see a definite benefit to having 2 or even 3GB installed. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, 2GB should be considered a minimum for most users. How much RAM can my computer take? Every computer is different but fortunately there is a quick and easy way of establishing both the capacity of yours and also the form your memory configuration takes – most laptops have two memory slots available and desktop computers may have 2,4 or even up to 8 slots. For instance, if you have a laptop with 2 memory slots, then the 1GB of installed memory that you have established you have may be made up of 2x512MB memory modules or, more usefully, 1x1GB leaving one slot empty and ready to upgrade with. Pay a visit to www. crucial.com/uk and make use of their free and easy Memory Advisor Tool – put in your computer´s make and model number and it will tell you in an instant how much memory is installed, in what configuration and also what the maximum you can install and what kind of memory you need. If you can´t work out the make and model or if you own a privately built desktop computer that doesn´t have a model number, don´t panic, there is also a little program that you can download for free from the same site which will tell you all you need to know. If you just want to double your memory, and you have an empty slot available, then all you need to do is purchase another, identical stick of RAM. If you want to add more than that, then you have to find a memory module with a higher RAM capacity. If all of your slots are filled, then you will have to replace the current memory modules you have with modules with a higher RAM capacity. (For instance, if you have only two slots, and both are filled with two 256MB memory modules, you will have to replace both with,

say, two 1GB modules.) You may choose to buy a suggested memory upgrade right there and then from the same site – Crucial provide reliable and competitively priced RAM - or you may wish to jot down the specs and shop around the likes of ebay and any number of online component stores and save a few quid. If you choose the latter path be sure to order memory of identical specification, else you could have problems later or the memory might not even fit! Okay, my new memory has arrived – how do I fit it? This is actually quite simple but the procedure can vary from computer to computer. As always, you should ask for expert advice if you´re not totally sure what you are doing – we will not accept responsibility yada yada..... There follows a brief outline of that procedure which will suit most laptops but if you want more information or if you´re using a desktop computer then YouTube offers a huge amount of walkthrough videos – just go to www.youtube.com and search for your make and model, or just type in (for example) Laptop RAM Upgrade and choose one. You will need a small starshape screwdriver and an antistatic wristband is highly recommended too – the amount of static electricity in the human body is more than enough to fry the delicate electronics in a RAM module if you accidentally touch any of the contacts or components. The author has many times in the past simply touched something that is earthed - like a metal pipe or a metal appliance and

encountered no problems but this should be considered risky and arguably irresponsible practice! In any event, avoid touching any of the metal components on a RAM module, taking great care to hold it only by the side edges. Also, do not open the antistatic packaging the memory will have come in until you´re ready to install it. 1. Switch off and remove all connections from your laptop, close the lid and remove the battery. 2. Place the laptop upside down and locate the cover for the RAM slots on the bottom of the case – this may be indicated by a small symbol of a memory module, not unlike the module(s) you´re about to fit. There may well be more than one cover panel to allow access to other components like your hard disk drive so if you´re not sure just check each one in turn by unscrewing the little screw holding the panel in place and having a peek underneath. 3. Once you have access to the memory slots, remove the existing RAM modules (if necessary – if you´re just adding a module to an empty slot then skip this step) by gently releasing the catch on each side of the module with your screwdriver, taking special care not to touch anything else with it. At this point the module should pop up to around 45 degrees. Gently remove the module by gently pulling it

straight out at the same angle. 4. Remove the new module from its antistatic packaging, holding it by the side edges and taking great care not to touch any metal contacts and check you have it the right way up by matching the one or two notches on the row of metal contacts with those in the empty slot. Very gently push the new module into the slot at around a 45 degree angle – do not force it – once you have the correct angle of approach it should go in quite easily. Once it is all the way in (only a couple of millimetres but it will feel “right”) push the top surface of the module down until it automatically clicks into place. Again, it should be stressed that if it seems that too much force is required, its likely that the memory isn´t aligned properly – if necessary, remove the module and start this step again. 5. Replace the memory cover panel and the battery and switch your computer on. Once Windows starts, open System Properties (see “How can I find out how much RAM I have?” above) and check how much memory is now installed. All being well you should now be enjoying a faster and smoother computing experience! If your computer will not switch on or the newly installed memory is not showing in System Properties then try repeating the procedure in case there is a bad contact between the module and memory slot. If you are still having problems, email us and we will try to put you on the right track, though please remember that ultimately any changes you make to your computer are at your own risk!

Question & Answer

Question. I have a 2005 Opel Corsa 1.0i. One of the cylinders is misfiring and the garage have told me the engine diagnostics indicate it is losing pressure, possibly due to a damaged valve or seals. They say it is going to cost around €500 just to strip it down and diagnose, then it could be much more to repair. Is it worth progressing or should I just get a reconditioned engine replacement? The engine has only done 60.000 kilometres and was running well before the misfire started. Answer. Fitting another engine will entail a fair amount of labour in itself-and you’re dealing with an engine with an unknown history. If the garage has run a wet and dry compression test, they should have a good idea of the cause of loss of pressure. There’s no fault code that will tell you if the compression is bad! If the piston rings have failed then a new engine is probably more cost effective. But if it’s the valve or valve seal, then this can be repaired whilst leaving the block in situ-and should be cost effective. E-mail your questions to graham@motorworldtenerife.com .

Andy Murray seeded fourth for the upcoming Wimbledon Championships

THE British No. 1 is ranked fourth in the world and heads into the event in great form, having won the AEGON Championships warmup event at Queen’s. However, he will face stiff opposition, headed by the defending champion and World No.1 Rafael Nadal, who will be the top seed. Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic is

having a superb 2011 and he is seeded second, while all-time great Roger Federer will be bidding for his seventh Wimbledon crown and is seeded third. Last year’s runner-up Tomas Berdych has been promoted to sixth-seed, while three-time finalist Andy Roddick finds himself seeded eighth. The draw for the event is scheduled to take place on Friday.

Valencia Football Club McIlroy: No Tiger signs French sex symbol means a bigger chance for the rest of the field

VALENCIA Football Club has presented its latest signing. Adil Rami comes with the label of being the sexiest player in the French League and is considered a gay icon.

Of Moroccan origin and known as ‘The Body’ he is 1’90 tall and weighs 90 kilos, the 25 year old comes from Lille. He posed naked in the ‘Gods of the Stadium’ calendar published in France in 2009. It’s said that he is able to lift 115 kilos in weights five times over. He’s signed for Valencia for four years, describing that as ‘a real honour to belong to this club’, and is already earning considerable amounts from advertising contracts.

British investors reported to be buying Cádiz C.F.

LA Voz de Cádiz newspaper reports that a group of British investors has reached a verbal agreement to take over Cádiz Football Club.

The paper says little is known about the group, but they are based in Sotogrande. One rumour mentions the name of Glenn Hoddle who is thought to have lost more than five million € in a three year adventure with Jerez Industrial. Contracts have already been translated and the main shareholder in the club, Antonio Muñoz, is reported to be waiting for a time and place to sign the traspaso. The paper says this follows days of meetings and the exchange of documentation. The newspaper mentions a price of around three million Euros.

TIGER Woods not being at the US Open may be bad for the sport of golf, but Rory McIlroy says it’s good for him and the rest of the field. The former world number one pulled out of the second major of 2011 at Congressional with knee and Achilles injuries. But while the man many see as the face of the sport isn’t around, 22-year-old Northern Irishman McIlroy says it’s one less dangerous opponent to contend with.”It’s obviously not great for the golf tournament - it would have been great to see him play. But I suppose it leaves the door a little bit open for a few of the guys,” he said. “Every time you have Tiger in the field you’ve got to think that he’s going to have a good chance. To have one of the main contenders not

here gives the rest of us a little bit more of a chance.” McIlroy fully understands Woods’ decision to miss Congressional, and says Tiger’s injury problems were easy to see. “You have to take care of your health before anything else. It was apparent that his body still isn’t in a good enough place to play competitive golf. “Hopefully he gets back on the course soon, but he still looked like he was in quite a lot of pain in the nine holes he played at The Players.” McIlroy himself is still

looking to put that Augusta meltdown behind him - a final-round 80 cost him the chance of Masters glory in April. “No doubt it was a great experience for me. I took the positives from the week - there weren’t many to take from the Sunday. “It’s hard. It was my first time in that situation, you’re going to be feeling the pressure a little bit and I certainly did. “You’re in with a great chance to win your first major and it just doesn’t happen. You just move on - that’s all you can do. It’s not the end of the world.”

Foot injury forces Kim Clijsters to withdraw from Wimbledon

WORLD number two Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from next week’s Wimbledon Championships because of a foot injury. The 28-year-old, who would have been seeded two at SW19, had a recurrence of the problem at the Unicef Open in the Netherlands. “At this moment I feel frustrated that it has to happen now before one of my favourite tournaments,” she said. “I’ve always en-

joyed being a part of the Wimbledon atmosphere but I have no other choice now but to rest.” Following the Belgian’s announcement, the players below her all move up a place, with Tsvetana Pironkova coming in at number 32. With world number one Caroline Wozniacki named top seed, Vera Zvonareva becomes the new second seed, Li Na third, Victoria Azarenka

fourth and former champion Maria Sharapova fifth. Clijsters, who retired from the sport in 2007 and gave birth to her daughter before returning two years later to win the US Open title, collected her fourth Grand Slam title in January by capturing the Australian Open. She first damaged her foot in unusual circumstances in April, after dancing barefoot at her cousin’s wedding.

After a two-hour stoppage and no less than five appearances from the safety car, Button chased down Vettel in a final lap showdown which saw the Red Bull driver run wide under pressure and gift the win to McLaren. Button, who recovered from a main straight collision with teammate Lewis Hamilton and made five visits to the pits during the race including an enforced drive-through penalty, relished in what he described as possibly the best win of his career. “I really don’t know what to say, it’s been a very emotional race,” he said. “The incident with Lewis - I couldn’t see anything and I’ve apologised to him. “It was really a fight from then on but I kept on pushing and I managed to get past Seb at the end. Another great win for me and possibly my best.”

You can’t have him! Chelsea fail with £22million offer for Croatian midfielder

Sources understand that Tottenham have turned down a £22million offer from Chelsea for Luka Modric.The Croatian playmaker has emerged as one of the Premier League’s most creative and stylish performers since arriving at White Hart Lane in 2008.

A series of sparkling displays for Spurs last season reportedly attracted the attention of several clubs, with Manchester United believed to be admirers of the 25-yearold. However, it is Chelsea who are believed to have made the first move for Modric this summer, lodging a big-money bid for his services. Tottenham rejected the proposal but it is understood that the Blues are planning to return with an improved

offer that will further test their resolve. Chelsea are currently without a manager after sacking Carlo Ancelotti but owner Roman Abramovich appears ready to invest heavily in the squad as he is determined to bounce back after a season without silverware. Spurs have previously made it clear that they intend to keep hold of all their key players after missing out on UEFA Champions League qualification. Harry Redknapp stated over the weekend that Modric was crucial to their hopes of future success, saying: “If we sell Luka we are just a selling club basically.” Modric, though, has refused to rule out the possibility of a transfer this summer.
