EDITORIAL

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

THIS WEEK Whilst I was contemplating what to write in this week’s Editorial it was announced that Silvio Berlusconi’s centreright coalition had lost control of both Milan and Naples in local elections. That made me think about the possible parallels that could be drawn between the recent Canarian local elections and those of our Italian cousins. Now, we all know that there are some local politicians that have been accused of dubious actions and possible corruption within local government, but the situation within Italy is on a national scale. The man that most of the world media purports to be an opportunist (and philanderer) seemed to go from strength to strength recently; without the general populous of Italy registering the goings on. It is only now that opinion seems to be sliding. Whereas here, in the Canaries, there has been a lot of consternation amongst the people that actually live here: with regards to what their local government have done for them lately. But, yet, although we have had a slight political shift in another direction following the election, what will actually change? Sometimes I feel that the local Spanish government think that the voting population are either stupid or have the memory of a goldfish. My main reason for this statement is this: before the election we had pot-holes in the roads that even Britain would be ashamed of, but all of a sudden, just before elections, there’s a flurry of activity to resurface roads, erect road signs, clear debris and weeds from roadsides, etc. Do they think we’re stupid? Although, as is in

most democratic countries, the race for power in Spain is usually a two-horserace, I don’t fancy the odds of any runner to give their people all the things they may have promised us on the campaign trail. On another note: It has recently been announced that Barclays Bank, in the UK, is considering buying one of Spain’s regional savings banks. I find this a little fishy – neither Barclays nor the Spanish government are divulging which bank is in question. Spain has a number of regional banks, called ‘Cajas’. The boss of Barclays, Mr. Bob Diamond, has asked for a guarantee that they will not be liable for “any historic debts”. So, I got to thinking, if Barclays won’t honour any outstanding debts, who will? The shareholders, the account holders, the tax payer? We have yet to see what’s going to happen, but I can’t remember an occasion when government intrusion of financial institutions has transpired as a good thing for the people here: on the ground. And finally, “Lady Gaga ends Adele’s reign at the top of the UK chart”, as reported by the BBC. Ok, so maybe I’m showing my age, but I remember when a popular song was popular because the artiste could sing, not just look pretty. I will concede that Lady Gaga is a great singer, but I yearn for the days when talent was obvious, not just an image and a voice that’s been squeezed through a computer synthesizer. ~Isabella Young If you have any questions or comments please send them to: editor@tenerifeweekly.es

Man that beheaded Jennifer Mills-Westley has NOT escaped RECENT reports that Deyan Valentinov Deyanov, who cruelly murdered 60 year old Jennifer Mills-Westley on May 13th had escaped from the secure psychiatric unit at the Hospital de la Candelaria in Santa Cruz are completely unfounded. The 28 year old Bulgarian did attempt to leave the unit as a nurse was entering the room; however, he was stopped and detained immediately by the two National Police officers who are on constant guard outside his room. Deyanov was transferred from the Tenerife II prison to the secure Psychiatric Unit of Candelaria hospital on a judges’ order after a medical assessment determined that he was mentally ill. Police sources added that the man was heavily sedated at first but is now

forums which spoke of him escaping justice.(by being declared mentally ill) These were mis-interpreted as saying that he had escaped captivity. Police confirm that he is under constant guard and deny any kind of security lapse.

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

...Continued from front page The police investigation, that ended with the arrest of the young Moroccan, has been directed by the judge of “The Audiencia Nacional”, Fernando Andreu, who also ordered his flat to be registered. Investigations appear to indicate that El Mouahhid was trying to recruit young people with the sole intention of introducing them to the Jihad (spiritual fight in Arabic) and possibly to turn them into future Islamic terrorists. The detained used the mosque at the Yumbo Shopping Centre in the Gran Canarian Resort of Maspalomas for his activities. Investigators believe that he maintained contact with other Islamists jailed in Morocco. Investigators have also

learned that the detainee actively participated in the elaboration of documents of terrorist content, which were viewed by the young people at clandestine meeting places and that they were also distributed via the internet. After being detained and taken to the police station, his flat was registered. Now he is waiting to be transferred to Madrid in mainland Spain. It is believed that Imad El Mouaid has been in contact with different terrorists that are serving jail sentences in Morocco and that he belongs to a virulent Islamic terrorist cell called “Moroccan Islamic Combat Group”, one of the most radical and blood thirsty of the Al-Qaeda structure.

less so, and therefore it has become necessary for him to be manacled. Police strongly deny that the Bulgarian ever managed

to escape from the unit and it appears that the rumours may have been caused to a certain extent by comments posted on Spanish language

Prüfer-Storks indicated that the investigations have proved that the variant 0104, isolated in the examined faeces of several patients, specially aggressive and resistant to antibiotics, does not match the bacteria found in the Spanish vegetables from the Central Market in Hamburg. According to the Health Senator, “The source of the outbreak has not been identified” Also, Prüfer-Storks, who was the first person to name the Spanish cucumbers as the source of the infection said that “We cannot consider that the peak of the outbreak has been reached yet” Hamburg Hygiene Institute keeps analysing

tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuces in markets, shops, food stores and restaurants in the city, to try to isolate the source of the outbreak, and essential task to stop the infection. Since the first case was detected last week 15 people have died, the majority of them elderly women whom suffered Haemorrhagic E.coli and another 1,400 people have contracted the disease, 570 of which are residents of Hamburg alone. (Data correct at time of going to press.)

SPANISH CUCUMBERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR E.COLI OUTBREAK ANALYSIS indicates that bacteria found in Spanish cucumbers does not match the bacteria found in affected patiences’ faeces. Spanish cucumbers are not the source of the E. coli bacteria outbreak, which according to the Hamburg Health Senator Cornelia Prüfer-Storks, have caused the death of 15 people in Germany and affected more than 1,400 people in the country. The Head of Health of Hamburg explained, according to the tabloid “Hamburger Abendblatt,” that lab analyses have corroborated that the bacteria variant found on Spanish cucumbers does not coincide with the bacteria found in the patient faeces.

Telecoms drop prices thanks to submarine fibre optic cable Cheaper internet connections for subscribers in Tenerife

CITIZENS in Tenerife are already feeling the benefits of the Cabildo’s NAP or Neutral Network Access Point. The new hi-tech facility at the ITER in Granadilla not only offers much better and quicker high speed broadband connections but also cheaper access to internet. With the arrival of the submarine fibre optic cable on 16 May, the market in Tenerife is now open to other telecoms operators, which will make the competition more dynamic and liberalize the market place although the service will not be fully operative until September 2011. Nevertheless, some telecoms companies like ONO, for example, have decided to go ahead and launch cut price offers for their customers by saying that these rates have been made possible by the new fibre optic

cable. ONO is now telling its customers it can offer higher quality internet services in the Canaries and “with the arrival of the submarine cable thanks to the ALiX Project” they will be able to enjoy the benefits of fibre optics “at exclusive rates for subscribers in the Canary Islands.” This confirms the forecasts made by the president of the Tenerife Government or Cabildo, Ricardo Melchior, who has tirelessly explained to the people of Tenerife: “ALiX means we will take a giant technological leap forward in broadband connectivity with higher quality services, larger capacity and better prices”. From now on the competition between the different telecoms operators will become fiercer as they will offer subscribers cheaper

rates and better broadband connections. It means that customers in Tenerife will benefit from cheaper phone calls and faster more reliable internet connections The start up of the NAP for West Africa and the Canary Islands is the first step towards reaching the Cabildo de Tenerife’s goal to increase the island’s competitiveness through the ALiX Project. This involves developing ICT infrastructures and the exponential increase of the internal and external connectivity of Tenerife. With this major initiative the Cabildo has set itself the challenge of turning the Island into one of the main hubs on the global telecommunications network and to gradually increase submarine connectivity between the Canaries, Africa, Europe and Latin America. It means there will now

Ricardo Melchior at signing ceremony

be greater capacity available to transmit data from the Canaries so that the business sector in the islands will be able to increase productivity and be more innovative. The NAP or Neutral Network Access Point is a kind of “airport terminal” for telecommunications which houses the servers in a reliable and secure facility that hooks up to its own cable and offers space for infor-

mation communication technology firms to operate. The Tenerife NAP will

dramatically increase the existing range of ITC in the Canaries.

New Foreign Tourist Office

FROM June of this year, foreign tourists to the South of Tenerife will benefit from a new service to be made available at the National Police Station in Playa de Las Americas, which is the main police station in south Tenerife. Plans were finalised in a meeting between senior officers of the Tenerife Sur Comisaría, the heads of Adeje and Arona Policía Local, the Arona Councilor for police, and two Cabildo representatives.

Page 4

The Foreign Tourist Service (Servicio de Atención al Turista Extranjero: SATE) will be available between 9am and 2pm and aims at going a step further than the usual tourist services. They will offer help and support to foreign visitors who may have become victims of crime on the Island.

This will range from psychological help and translation services to contacting consulates, embassies and victims’ families. The service will also assist in processing any necessary paperwork and cancelling stolen credit/debit cards etc. This is a long awaited service that has been demanded both by local action groups and security professionals in the south of the Island to fill a gap in major services to visitors to the Island.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH FINES 56 BUSINESSES IN THE CANARIES FOR NON COMPLIANCE WITH THE ANTI SMOKING LAW

THE Canarian Health Service (SCS) has sanctioned 56 of the 3,440 businesses inspected since the modification of the anti smoking law. The penalties of more than 600 euros are, in the main, for allowing smoking and misuse of tobacco machines. The measure was announced during a news round by the Health Service General Director, José Fernando DíazFlores, who stated that since the introduction of the law at the end of 2010 the SCS has carried out 3,699 inspections in 3,440 locals and premises, 98.3% at random and 1.7% due to “denuncias” (official complaints.) After the first visit 259 premises were inspected

www.tenerifeweekly.es

a second time to evaluate if corrective measures had been implemented. From the inspections, Diaz-Flores highlighted that 88.3% of businesses presented no anomalies, 7. 4% did not have the adequate signage, 1.8% did not adhere to the law regulating tobacco machines and 0.9% broke the law on more than one point. 74.7% of the inspections (2,765) corre-

sponded to the hotel and restaurant sectors. Other sectors, such as night clubs, health centres, schools and private busi-

ness were also investigated. With regards of the impact this law has had in the service sector, Diaz-

Flores said that employment in the hotel and restaurant areas has resulted in a slight increase in the number of affiliations to the Social Security. The Health Service General Director highlighted that at national level there has been a 30% decrease in the consumption of cigarettes, although in his own opinion, it is too early to evaluate the real impact of this law. He stated that The National Committee for the Prevention of Smoking Related Diseases estimates that there could be a reduction in hospital admissions for acute myocardial infarc-

tion of between 1,200 and 3,200 every year and of 1,000 a year due to asthma. Diaz-Flores also informed that the fines are of 30 euros for first time offenders, increasing to 120 euros if the law is broken a second time.

MANUEL Rodríguel M will have to spend 13 years in prison for the attempted murder of his ex-wife and her parents near their home in the Santa Cruz borough of El Sobradillo on the 3rd of December 2008. The 5th Section of the Audiencia Provincial (regional court) has ruled that the accused must compensate his ex-partner and two children with the amount of 14,880€ in the concept of civil responsibility and medical costs for treatment of the wounds inflicted during the attack. The accused was also tried and condemned for the crime of physical and physiological violence. The convict, who had been in preventative custody since the 5th of December 2008, has also been given a restraining order, which forbids him from having any contact with his exwife or siblings for a minimum of 10 years following his release from prison.

Manuel Rodriguez’s partner decided to break their relationship in January 2008 after she and her children returned to Tenerife from the Dominican Republic, where they have been living since August of 2007. Although the relationship had ended, the accused continued harassing the victim via mobile phone, sending her no less than 13 messages on the day the attack took place, as stated on the sentence which has now been made public. The attack happened on the 3rd of December 2008 when the accused, after consuming alcohol, cocaine and armed with a knife, waited for his expartner outside her parent’s

Man sentenced to 13 years in prison for stabbing ex-wife and parents-in-law. house in El Sobradillo. According to the courts, “He had chosen a serrated knife, one of those used for cutting meat, with an 11.5cm blade” The attack took place at 9:30pm as the victim returned home from a driving lesson. At that moment Manuel approached her with knife in hand, pounced and rustled her to

the ground and tried to kill her. The victim’s screams were heard by her parents, who tried to help. First the victim’s father tried to push the attacker away and received cuts on the face, chest and thorax. The victim’s mother also attacked by Manuel and suffered wounds in the right and left lumbar areas. A driving school teacher

heard the screams and went to their aid. He hit the aggressor with the driving school sign. His intervention was crucial as he stopped the aggression and forced the attacker to flee the area. Manuel tried to stab himself and hide the knife in a tree and then asked for help in a nearby petrol station where he claimed that

he had been attacked. By the time police arrived they were aware of the assault and arrested him at the scene. The victim spent 30 days in hospital and suffers from post traumatic stress; her father’s wounds took 4 months to heal, while her mother had to stay in hospital for 8 days.

The Cabildo allocate 202,000 euros in grants for training

The “nonconformists” propose to give blood en mass.

“Don´t let then suck your blood, give it away!” That is the motto of the campaign that was adopted by the group “Real Democracy” (15M) on Wednesday the 1st of June in La Candelaria Square in central Santa Cruz. The 15M movement which remains camped in La Candelaria Square promoted this action on the 1st of June with the slogan, whilst trying to raise aware-

ness about the importance of donating blood. They state that their argument is based on the nature of the ruthless and “blood sucking” economic regime, where the majority of families have their lives put on hold and chained to a cruel dependency generated by the powerful; with exploitation instruments such as mortgages, low salaries, unemployment, social exclusion, welfare cuts, mar-

ginality and the increasing plight of young people and pensioners. According to this group, it is necessary to stay put and raise your head. The nonconformists invited the general public to actively participate in this proposal to give “a lesson of solidarity and to reject exploitation” The blood donation took place at 9:00am and lasted all day.

Tenerife reaches 10,000 fans on Facebook

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

It is the first tourist destination in the Canary Islands to surpass that figure.

THE official website of the island on Facebook, created and maintained by Turismo de Tenerife, has had this week with 10,000 followers, way ahead of Lanzarote, who has 8274, Gran Canaria, 5,540 and Fuerteventura, which totals 3,460 friends. The first vice president

and chief Cabildo Insular de Turismo in office, José Manuel Bermúdez, stresses the importance of a fact “that also shows the great interest generated by the island as a tourist destination, we are effectively managed and generating content and conversations are attractive to users. “In addition, the counselor emphasizes “the dramatic evolution of the page in the last year, when he was only with 1,118 fans.” On the page, called Tenerife enjoys all, daily share photos, videos, events, promotions and point on the island multimedia content is also used in order to create virus in two phases: one for the diffusion Tenerife product network, and another for the local public

see and work identified in its distribution. The ultimate goal is to turn those 10,000 prescriber’s friends in real destination, so as to promote the creation of a channel twoway communication (listening and dialogue) to position the island as a source of information relating to potential customers seek content destination in the network. The subsidiary of the council also runs the Facebook profiles of the island in the United Kingdom (1,645 friends), Germany (516), Italy (678) and France (342), as well as in Tenerife to seven percent, aimed specifically local people and which has 1,727 followers.

The Canarian Economy is recovering, but there are still several depressed sectors

THE General Director of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Navigation in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Vicente Dorta, said that the Canaries “must demand the national government to allocate what it is owed to the archipelago in the next national budget”. Dorta states that “we cannot hesitate when it comes to ask Madrid for the funds as it is essential if we want the Canaries to come out of the economic crisis.” Dorta, who made the remarks during the presentation of the results of the economic situation bulletin for the first quarter of the year, said that “today we received 545 million less in funding per year over the national average and the same happened in the previous years “, a fact he stressed,” is affecting the functioning of our economy. “ The economic situation bulletin issued by the Economic Service Studies at the Chamber of Commerce in Tenerife for the first trimester of 2011 shows a slight improvement in the Canarian Economy. However this is not equal among different economic sectors and the internal demand continues to be under pressure due to high unemployment and the lack of bank credits. Tourism is the activity behind the first signs of recovery. Dorta has recognised that the lowering of airport taxation and the North African unrest has favoured the improvement in this sector.

THE Ministry of Health wants the price of a pack of cigarettes to double in price, in order to equalise it with neighbouring countries such as France, Ireland or United Kingdom; as indicated by The General Sub Director for the Promotion of Health and Epidemiology, Rosa Ramirez. According to Ramirez, “Spain continues to have much cheaper tobacco than its neighbouring countries such as France, United Kingdom or Ireland.” In fact, we supply cheap tobacco to these countries and it is a business in certain areas” “To end this situation the ideal thing would be to increase tobacco taxation to at least the same level of these European Countries and to increase the price of a packet of cigarettes”, she said. “The increase in taxation is not the responsibility of the Ministry of Health, but the Ministry of Economy and Taxation. But here at the Ministry of Health we

are periodically reminding them of the necessity of increasing the duty on tobacco products” She asks for the regulation of electronic cigarettes. Ramirez has also said that Spain has asked the European Union to consider the regularisation of electronic cigarettes. These devices can, in some cases, be harmful, but are not regulated by any law since they are not classified as pharmaceutical or tobacco products. “The way the Tobacco Law has affected the health of the Spanish population is already visible”, according to Ramirez. A recent study

THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH WANTS TO DOUBLE THE PRICE OF TOBACCO about hospital admissions of children with asthma and other admissions for acute myocardial infarction was carried out two months ago; however, the Ministry of Health will present the official results at the end of this year.

Spain is given a “B” in the effort against smoking. The president of The Health Commission, Gaspar LLamazares, has pointed out that tobacco businesses are immersed in a “war of prices” to get over the

adverse effects of the Anti Smoking Law. The main targets of this campaign are young people, the most affected by a price increase. For that reason he has asked for the continuity of the taxation of tobacco products and to end the myth that the state benefits from the tobacco industry. The effects of smoking cost the Spanish taxpayer around 17,000 million euros, however the amount paid into the system via tobacco taxation is only half of this.

Album Review

James Blunt to perform in Santa Cruz Debut single ‘You’re Beautiful’ and album ‘Back to Bedlam’ catapulted him to international fame with second album ‘All the Lost Souls again’ topping the charts in over 10 countries. James Blunt returns to present his third studio album ‘Some kind of trouble’. The 37 year old singer will take to the stage at the Adán Martín auditorium on the 28th of July 2011 at 9pm.

Ticket prices start from 40 Euros and you can book tickets by calling 902 317 327 (10am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday) at the Auditorium box office (from 10am to 3pm hours, Monday through Friday and from 10am to 2pm Saturdays) or online at www. auditoriodetenerife.com.

James Bunt’s capacity to churn out a commercial tune has never been in doubt, You’re Beautiful being the perfect example: designed for easy consumption by the masses. He and producer Steve Robson (Take That) have striven manfully to emulate the successful formula, and there are two or three power ballads near that ballpark in this new album. Best Laid Plans and No Tears plump for the plaintive piano with string backdrop option, swirling into starry-eyed choruses about angels. If Time Is All I Have cranks up the

pathos in James’s trademark tremulous vocal, but the song sadly wafts away on the over-emotive hot air. Blunt tries to mix it up, striving for raunchiness on Turn Me On but sounds more like an overgrown schoolboy trying on his dad’s clothes for size. Kings of Leon might be missing one of their bass lines, but ought to track it down lurking in the depths of So Far Gone. Overall, lacking the overwrought intensity of his debut, his third album is buoyed by quirky hooks and simple, thoughtful lyrics

Callao Salvaje beach works coming on leaps and bounds

FOR years residents of Callao Salvaje have waited patiently for rework on the Ajabo beach to start. And it seems that their patience is paying off as the Adeje Ayuntamiento were true to their word and started the project on time last December and have been progressing well ever since as these latest pictures show.

Just over 1.2 million Euros has been invested into the area which will see the beach increase in size and

depth and the introduction of viewpoints. A new wooden walkway, pathways, bathing rooms and a kiosk has also be budgeted into the plans. Officials say that the newly refurbished beach should be open for the summer but it won’t be until the end of the year that all work is complete.

The new beach complies with all specifications for a Blue Flag beach

Hospital ‘abuse’ prompts review

THE Government has ordered an urgent review into the “inhumane” abuse of people with learning disabilities at a residential hospital.

Police arrested four people after secret filming by BBC Panorama showed vulnerable adults at Winterbourne View, in Bristol, being punched, slapped and taunted by carers. Three men, aged 42, 30 and 25, and a 24-year-old woman have now been released on bail by Avon and Somerset police. Care services minister Paul Burstow ordered a “thorough examination” of the role of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) - the social care services regulator - and local authorities in

the case. He also asked the CQC to carry out a series of unannounced inspections of similar services. Thirteen members of staff, including two managers, have been suspended by the hospital’s owners Castlebeck. During five weeks of undercover filming in February and March, patients were seen being pinned down, slapped, doused in cold water and repeatedly taunted and teased. The Prime Minister’s spokesman said the case was “clearly very shocking” but insisted it was too early to draw wider conclusions. Asked if CQC had sufficient resources, he told reporters: “Clearly there have been failures in this case. We need to look at that before drawing any

conclusions.” Winterbourne View is a privately-run hospital which cares for up to 24 patients, employs around 50 members of staff and is funded by taxpayers. Mark Goldring, chief executive of learning disability charity Mencap, called for the hospital to be closed down. He said the treatment of patients was “horrific” and “did feel like torture”. Castlebeck emphasised its “distress” at the allegations. Chief executive officer Lee Reed said: “I was shocked, disgusted and ashamed by what I saw on Panorama. Having spent my entire career in health and social care, I intend to leave no stone unturned to ensure that this type of horrific event is never allowed to happen again.”

Man held over ‘cocaine’ in sweets

A man has been arrested after he allegedly hid drugs in a sweet packet that his daughter then took to school. The wrap of cocaine is believed to have been found in a packet of Haribo sweets the 10-year-old girl took to Southdown Junior School in Newhaven, East Sussex. At the end of school pupils were discussing their possessions with classmates and the drug was discovered.Police raided the family’s home in Newhaven last week and found what is believed to be cocaine and cannabis.A Sussex Police spokeswoman

said: “A 31-year old man was arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply.”Officers found a quantity of white and brown powder, and a quantity of what is believed to be herbal cannabis at the Newhaven address.”The warrant was carried out after a 10-year-old girl was found in possession of a suspicious white substance at a Newhaven school on April 27.”The substance was seized and police have been working

closely with the school to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.” The man has been released on police bail until August 18 while the investigation continues

Four arrested over child’s death plunge

Four people have been arrested on suspicion of child neglect after a six-year-old boy died in an eight-storey fall from a tower block.

The boy, named by West Yorkshire Police as Liam Adam Shackleton, fell from the window of a flat at Lindsey Mount in Leeds on Tuesday. Shocked neighbours laid a teddy bear and flowers close to the spot where the child hit the ground. Maria Jordan, 50, who lives nearby on the large Lincoln Estate, said it was a heartbreaking tragedy. Mrs Jordan, who has two grandchildren aged four and seven, wept as she said: “My neighbour knocked on my door and told me a little boy had fallen to the ground. I don’t know the family but it breaks my heart thinking about that poor kiddie. If I lived that

far up I wouldn’t let my grandchildren anywhere near the windows.” Father of three Mohammad Kulan, 42, a security guard, saw the aftermath of the tragedy from his house opposite Lindsey Mount. “I looked out of the window when I heard the police sirens and there was a lot of people gathered in the gardens,” he said. “Paramedics were tending to the boy but I don’t think there was much they could do. It’s very sad. Everybody I’ve seen today has said what a terrible thing it was.” On pink notepaper attached to a teddy bear, a message from Mama and Julie read: “Such a shame, such a young age and to be taken like that. Dear Father in Heaven, dear Father above, please guide and protect the ones that we love and guide them from danger. Guide them from fear for this child is so dear.”

West Yorkshire Police were called at about 5.15pm on Tuesday. Liam was taken to Leeds General Infirmary but died a short time later. A police spokesman said: “Four people have been arrested on suspicion of child neglect following the death of a six-year-old boy who fell from a block of flats. Two males, aged 57 and 36, and a 28-year-old female remain in police custody along with a 16-year-old female who was also arrested in connection with the same incident.”

US Pentagon to treat cyber-attacks as ‘acts of war’ THE US is working on a plan to categorise cyber-attacks as acts of war, says the New York Times newspaper.

Mobile Phones ‘Could Increase Cancer Risk’

MOBILE phone use could increase the risk of brain cancer, experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO) have warned. Scientists have classified handsets as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” - and advised people to use handsfree devices or text instead of calling. The classification came after the WHO working group concluded radiofrequency electromagnetic fields associated with handsets potentially heightened the chances of suffering glioma, a malignant form of the disease. The WHO had previously said there was no established evidence for a link between cell phone use and cancer. The mobile phone industry has played down the latest announcement, pointing out it is not based on any new scientific evidence. And it stressed the cancer category that mobile phones have been classed in also includes coffee, pickled vegetables and dry cleaning. The Department of Health said of the WHO claim: “This does not change our position which has been to adopt a precautionary approach”. It added “children should only use mobile phones for essential purposes and keep all calls short”. A week-long meeting of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) group featured 31 scientists

from 14 countries in Lyon, France. The agency said the five billion mobile phone subscriptions around the world would increase, particularly among young adults and children. Jonathan Samet, chairman of the working group, said: “The evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the classification.” The scientist, from the University of Southern California, added: “The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.” IARC director Christopher Wild advised mobile phone users to use hands-free devices or text instead of call to reduce risk while more research is done. “Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings, it is important that additional research be conducted into the long-term, heavy use of mobile phones,” he said. “Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic meas-

Should the new rules go through, only Dutch citizens will be able to enter Holland’s famed ‘coffee shops’ where the sale of cannabis is the main attraction. Locals will also face tougher restrictions. Patrons wishing to gain access into the cafes will be required to sign up for a one-year membership. Each shop will only be able to issue 1,500 memberships. The new rules could be implemented as early as the end of this

year. The proposed ban comes from the leaders of the country’s farright coalition government, who promised to curb drug tourism in a bid to fight drug trafficking and promoting a healthy lifestyle.”In order to tackle the nuisance and criminality associated with coffee shops and drug trafficking, the open-door policy of coffee shops will end,” Dutch health and justice ministers were quoted in a written statement addressed to the country’s parliament. The country’s opposition are calling the new rules ‘tourism suicide’, and say it could cost millions in lost revenue. There are also fears that a flourish-

Sophistication of hackers One of the difficulties strategists are grappling with is how to track down reliably the cyber-attackers who deliberately obscure the origin of their incursions. And it is not clear how the Pentagon proposes to deal with cyber-attackers, such as terrorists, who are not acting for a nation state. The sophistication of hackers and frequency of the attacks came back into focus after an attack on arms-maker Lockheed Martin on 21 May. Lockheed said the “tenacious” cyber-attack on its network was part of a pattern of attacks on it from around the world. The US defence department estimates that more than 100 foreign intelligence organizations have attempted to break into American networks.

plot to blow up transatlantic planes using explosives hidden in soft drink bottles. European airports then banned any liquid - including syrups, creams, gels and pastes - in containers larger than 100ml carried in hand luggage. We are not convinced that the equipment is up to the job” Frustrated passengers have been forced to throw away bottles of perfume, tubes of sun cream and other liquids before boarding planes. The European Union planned a phased ending of the restrictions, beginning with a partial lifting of the rules for transit passengers passing through EU airports from outside Europe. But at the end of April - a day before the partial lifting was due to be introduced - the commission said it would be delayed by six months as many member states were not ready and the airports did not trust the equipment. However, at the end of May the commission scrapped the partial easing completely and said it would now work towards a total lifting of restrictions

by 2013. Mr Simpson said: “My concerns are that the member states who caused the problem this time around will do exactly the same in 2013 and, using the getout clause of extra national security measures, will call for the ban at 2013 to carry on.” The UK government said the partial lifting of the restrictions were scrapped “in the light of the continuing high threat level” to security. It said it remained committed to the 2013 date dependent on the security threat at the time. The Airport Operators Association said it wanted the rules relaxed and understood the frustrations of passengers, but was “not prepared to compromise of security”.A spokesman said: “We are not convinced that the equipment is up to the job... we are not interested in purposely delaying the lifting of the strict rules on liquid.”

ures to reduce exposure, such as hands-free devices or texting.” The international working group reached its conclusion after discussing and evaluating available literature on radiofrequency electromagnetic fields and exposure to wireless telephones. It did not quantify the risk but referred to a previous study (up to 2004), which showed a 40% increased risk for gliomas for those who used their phones for an average of 30 minutes a day over a 10-year period In the UK the Health Protection Agency says their advice on the use of mobile phones and the risk of cancer remains the same. It said it would support any research into the issue and noted that the WHO had said more research was needed.

Holland to ban pot for tourists

UNDER a new set of regulations, tourists will no longer be able to buy marijuana from cafes in the Netherlands, the country’s government said Friday.

In future, a US president could consider economic sanctions, cyber-retaliation or a military strike if key US computer systems were attacked, officials have said recently. The planning was given added urgency by a cyberattack last month on the defence contractor, Lockheed Martin. A new report from the Pentagon is due out in a matter of weeks. “A response to a cyberincident or attack on the US would not necessarily be a cyber-response. All appropriate options would be on the table,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Dave

Lapan told reporters on Tuesday. ‘All necessary means’ The Pentagon’s planning follows an international strategy statement on cyber-security, issued by the White House on 16 May. The US would “respond to hostile acts in cyberspace as we would to any other threat to our country”, stated the White House in plain terms. “We reserve the right to use all necessary means diplomatic, informational, military, and economic - as appropriate and consistent with applicable international law, in order to defend our nation, our allieAs, our partners and our interests.” The strategy will classify major cyber-attacks as acts of war, paving the way for possible military retaliation, reported The Wall Street Journal after interviewing defence officials.

Soft drugs were decriminalised in the Seventies. There are currently around 750 coffee shops in the country.

AN MEP has accused British airports of dragging their feet over lifting the ban on liquids on board planes.

Transport committee chairman Brian Simpson said despite new scanners being ready to be rolled out, they would not install them on cost grounds. He claims UK airports have pressured the European Commission to delay the lifting of restrictions until 2013. The Airport Operators Association said it would not compromise security with equipment it was not convinced worked. The new hi-tech screening machines, capable of detecting liquid explosives, cost between £40,000 and £50,000 each. Restrictions phased out Mr. Simpson told BBC 5 live: “The crucial point for me and my committee on this is that we don’t actually believe it is a security issue, we believe it’s an economic issue. It’s about the cost of the machines.” The ban was brought in after UK police foiled a 2006

MINISTER for Finance Michael Noonan has categorically ruled out seeking further bailout funds for Ireland. Speaking to a group of Chartered Accountants in Limerick, Mr Noonan said we are currently on target and meeting our commitments under the EU-IMF bailout programme which runs to 2015. He was reacting to comments made by Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar, who speculated that we may need a second package of loans next year. He said that the targets under that programme are examined every quarter and Ireland has been given a clean bill of health. If we continue to meet those targets, he said we will grow out of our present difficulties. He mentioned that the Government may go back to the money markets ‘in a tentative way’ in 2012, depending on our progress under

the programme this year. They will be advised by the National Management Treasury agency on this, he added. He said he did not believe the crisis in Greece would affect Ireland’s position, but said that it may lead to a hardening of sentiment in the eurozone towards rescue packages. He also reiterated his stand on Ireland’s corporation tax, saying the 12.5% rate is sacrosanct and he has told the French Finance Minister they do not have a negotiating position on this. He said a reduction in Ireland’s interest rate is quite small - around €200m - and it was not worth it to us to trade that for a reduction in our corporation tax rate. A Taoiseach Enda Kenny has also said there will

Michael Noonan rules out further Irish bailout be no need for any second IMF/ EU bailout for Ireland. Speaking in Claremorris, Co Mayo he said the country was meeting the conditions, at the first review of the current bailout which is due to end in 2013 and the country had sufficient funds in all circumstances. He said: ‘Let me say with absolute clarity there would be no need for a second bailout.’ He said it was never the Government’s intention to go back on a full scale basis to the markets before the end of 2012. Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation Richard Bruton has said Ireland will return to the international markets for funding in the second half of next year.

Legends cue up for snooker academy opening FORMER world snooker champion Ken Doherty has opened his new academy with the help of a few fellow legends -- and his mother, of course. Doherty was joined by a host of names including Jimmy White, John Parrott, Cliff Thorburn, John Virgo and Michaela Tabb. But it was his mother Rose Doherty who did the honours and cut the ribbon at the Ken Doherty Snooker Academy. Based behind Brady’s Pub at Terenure Cross in south Dublin, the club has everything a budding or professional snooker player could

Page 14

want.But it is a far cry from the dingy, smoke-filled snooker halls remembered by many of these legendary players.There are several flat-screen TVs on the walls along with colourful prints featuring scenes from famous movies including ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Scarface’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’. Upstairs is more lavish, and comprises of six full-size snooker tables in plush carpeted surroundings. Doherty hopes to dispel the stigma of snooker clubs being “dingy and dark” and hopes that “it will be a very social place”, one where “mothers and fathers will feel very safe with their children”. A large

championship snooker table takes centre stage, and Doherty will practise there on a daily basis. The club and academy aspires to produce the next Irish world snooker champion and will also target foreign markets to bring the world’s best talent to Dublin for intensive coaching.”It’s always been a dream of mine to establish a club and academy where I could pass on the benefits of the experience I’ve built up,” Doherty said.”I think I can help people to realise their potential in the game, if they are really committed and focused.”

Speaking to a group of European correspondents in Brussels Mr Bruton said comments by Leo Varadkar, on Ireland possibly not being able to return to the markets, were ‘taken out of context,’ Mr Bruton said funding was available under the EU-IMF programme until the end of 2013 so there was ‘no absolute need’ to return to the markets before then. There was also ‘headroom’ available since only €24bn of the €35bn allocated for bank recapitalisation would be needed, and of that €24bn an element would come from the contribution of junior bondholders at AIB and Anglo Irish Bank. Mr Bruton said the NTMA would advise on

the best timing to return to the market, suggesting that the return would be gradual and there would be no need for a ‘massive requirement’. Funding concerns The EU is working on a second bailout package for Greece in a race to release vital loans next month and avert the risk of the euro zone country defaulting, say officials. Short term borrowing costs amongst peripheral eurozone countries - including Ireland - have risen on concerns over funding of the country. Greece’s conservative opposition meanwhile demanded lower taxes as a condition for reaching a political consensus with the Socialist government on further austerity meas-

ures, which Brussels says is needed to secure any further assistance. Moves to plug a looming funding gap for 2012 and 2013 were accelerated after the International Monetary Fund said last week it would withhold the next tranche of aid due on 29 June unless the EU guarantees to meet Athens’ funding needs for next year. Senior EU officials held unannounced emergency talks with the Greek government over the weekend, an EU source said. Greece took a €110bn rescue package from the EU and IMF last May but has since fallen short of its deficit reduction commitments, raising the risk of a default on its €327bn debt - equivalent to 150% of its economic output.

A crowd of 80,000 concert-goers came to the historic setting in Co Meath to witness the biggest gig of the year so far. “Woke up thinking last night’s amazing gig was a dream. Thanks again to all of you who made it so special. ‘Thank you Slane Castle. The most memorable show of my career,” drummer Nathan Followill told fans yesterday. Rhythm guitarist Jared Followill spoke of the group’s special connection to Ireland. “Individually, each member of our band is from the USA. Our band, however, is from this region of the world completely. This is our home,” he said. Grey skies, the odd drizzle, or even the death of Cleo Followill, uncle to Kings of Leon brothers Nathan, Jared and Caleb,

managed to put a dampener on the event, which also marked the 30th anniversary of the first concert on the banks of the Boyne back in 1981. The night before travelling to Slane the Kings of Leon had enjoyed dinner at Patrick Guilbaud’s restaurant before partying with Neil Diamond. Hearing that the singer and actor was staying at the same hotel, the group waited until he returned from an appearance on the ‘Late Late Show’ before inviting him to a drinks reception they hosted in The Four Seasons Hotel for about 30 friends and family who had travelled to Ireland to witness their historic Slane show. Downpour Gates at the site opened at 1pm as thousands of music fans converged on the

small Meath village aboard buses and coaches from all over Ireland. Some revellers arrived well-armed with wellington boots and macs but despite the odd shower, the downpour never materialised. Support act Thin Lizzy played one of the most well-received sets of the day, 30 years after they first headlined Slane. One element of the crowd seemed particularly fond of them -- the gardai, a number of whom were spotted singing along with Lizzy classics such as ‘The Boys are Back in Town’ as they carried out their duties. There were the usual complaints about queues for bars and toilets but in general the mood was good with just seven people arrested for public order offences despite the huge numbers in attendance. “It was a good crowd and they were good humoured, people complied with security requests. Everybody

behaved and nobody went near the Boyne River,” said Superintendent Michael Devine. But unlike previous years, VIPs were thin on the ground, aside from supermodel Lily Aldridge, the new wife of Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill. She was spotted cheering on her husband when the band took to the stage at around 8.40pm. The finale of the performance came with a fireworks display that lit up the night sky. But while concert-goers were looking up at the heavens, the headliners were already on the road back to Dublin -- with a garda escort -- and a private gathering in the Four Seasons Hotel. The Kings of Leon departed Dublin On Sunday afternoon by helicopter to coventry to perform on their next date of their European tour on Monday night.

Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg strolls along Dublin’s streets unnoticed FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg is one of the most powerful and wealthy men on the planet but he can still stroll through the streets of Dublin unnoticed by other pedestrians.

But he was followed at all times by a security team who kept a discreet distance behind the young billionaire during his stroll. The 27-year-old, estimated to be worth just under €9.5bn, was in Dublin for a few days to meet with staff at Facebook’s European headquarters and also take in some of the sights of the city. At the end of a week when US President Barack Obama shut down

He had arrived in Dublin on Thursday evening and on Friday called into see staff at Facebook’s headquarters on Hanover Quay, where he signed the office’s white drawing board.

BUSINESS

3rd June - 9th June 2011

Business Briefs The Bank of Spain has warned about the fall in indefinite employment, despite the Government’s labour reforms. The Bank considers that the fall in employment is being ‘more contained’ while it says the construction industry ‘continues in its process of adjustment’. The CLH, the Compañía Logística de Hidrocarburos, has said the lower 110 km/h speed limit on Spanish roads has affected the demand for petrol which is down by 9% since its introduction. Diesel demand over the first three months of the year was down 5.8%. Coca Cola has played down the importance of the demand from Hacienda for more than 50 million € in tax. The head of the company in Spain, Marcos de Quinto, even questioned if the demand was news, saying it was normal that they were fighting the tax man and facing possible fiscal fraud allegations. ‘Discrepancies with Hacienda are part of the life of companies’, he said. Iberia and AENA, the Spanish Airports Authority, have blamed each other for the delays in Spanish airports. Delays have been increasing over recent weeks, not least because of storms in the centre of the country. Only 45% of flights were on time at Barajas airport in Madrid on Monday. The State Deficit has reduced by 53% over the past year to stand at 2.45 billion. Costs fell by 19.6% for the year to April at 47.413 billion € compared to last year at the same time, while income was up 4.3% at 44.963 billion. Pensions have been eating into the Social Security account surplus. The year to April saw a surplus of 6.766 billion, which is 6.48% down on the same period in 2010. Pensions and money put aside for contributory pensions has increased by 4% in a year. The Secretary of State for Social Security, Octavio Granado, has warned of an important increase in the costs of pension payments. Spain does not need any additional electricity generating capacity until the year 2019, according to the forecasts of the Ministry for Industry. It says current facilities are enough to meet peak demands. Inflation fell by three tenths of a point in Spain in May, thanks to the fall in petrol prices. Inflation now stands at 3.5%, and the fall breaks the rising trend which started in August last year. The number is an advanced figure with the definitive number being published on June 14.

Spain bail out Portugal

THE Spanish Economy Minister, Elena Salgado, has confirmed today that Spain will provide between 4.5 and 5 billion Euros to the rescue programme drawn up for Portugal, which will total some 78 billion Euros altogether. Salgado explained that Spain’s contribution would be “in the form of guarantees” and not a loan and was 12.7% of the 26 billion euro rescue fund as corresponded to Spain as a member of the Cen-

Page 16

tral European Bank and of the European Financial Stability Facility created a year ago by the Eurozone member states. The minister’s announcement came on the back of a decision by the EU finance ministers to give the green light to Portugal’s rescue package, after accepting the conditions demanded by Finland. The 78 billion euro aid package will cover Portugal’s finance needs for the next three years and will be provided

in equal parts by the IMF and the EU’s two financial bodies in these circumstances, the EFSF and the European Financial Stabilisation Mechanism. Salgado Calso commented on the situation in Greece, after members of the Eurozone said yesterday that the country had to make a bigger effort to cut costs if it wanted more aid in addition to the 110 billion Euros that were pledged last year.

Barclays eyeing a Spanish bank deal BARCLAYS is considering a move for one of Spain’s ailing regional banks in a multi-billion pound bailout, it was reported. Chief executive Bob Diamond is said to have held talks with Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero over the possibility of the bank receiving guarantees from the government in the event of any deal. Spain’s regional banks, known as Cajas, have been a major headache for the country’s government after a prop-

erty boom fuelled by their lending imploded after the credit crunch. The Spanish government has already forced through a restructuring that cut their number from 45 to 17 and has ordered them to raise 20 billion Euros (£17.4 billion) to refinance themselves. Most of that money will come from the state, but the Spanish government is also

said to be very keen to attract foreign investors. The report said the talks with Barclays were not about a particular deal, but could allow the bank to identify potential opportunities in the country. Barclays already has a presence in Spain, but has been urged by City analysts either to increase the size of the business or else leave the country. Barclays declined to comment.

Insurance - Explained with Emma Swain

Continuing on from last week some other parts of house insurance you may come across are public liablity (responsablidad civil), frozen foods cover (alimentos congelados), water damage (daños por agua), impact damage (daños por impacto), municipal costs and rescue costs (tasa municipal y gastos de salvamento), legal assistance (proteccion juridica), home assistance (asistencia en el hogar), extraordinary risks (riesgos extraordinarios), etc. Public liability: Is to cover any damages that the parts of your property could cause to other users around you. Frozen foods cover: Would obviously cover your freezer contents usually providing the electrical current has been off for over six hours or if the freezer breaks usually providing it is under 10 years and is in a good state of repair. Water damage: Is any damages caused by the water pipes, be it due to breakage, freezing, etc. It also usually covers the associated costs of locating the problem. Impact damage: Would cover any damages caused by the impact of anything from an aeroplane to a tree. Municipal costs and rescue costs: Would cover the attendance of the fire brigade, the costs of the necessary measures that the town hall might have to spend to limit the consequence of a claim, the associated costs of having to move items belonging to the policy holder. Legal assistance: Is the cost of a lawyer to reclaim costs associated with a claim, to defend the policy holder, to defend or assist the policy holder in their capacity as a landlord or renter. Home assistance: Is to assist the policy holder in the event of an accident, incident or claim that is covered by the policy, most common are emergency electrical assistance, emergency locksmith, security personnel, glazier, plumbers, painters, cleaners, etc. Extraordinary risks: Extraordinary risks are covered by Consorcio (Consortium) are usually referred to as acts of god, but consorcio also cover acts of terrorism, rebellion, public uprising etc. And also damages caused by the army, navy, air force or police. Most Spanish companies also offer a public liability cover for certain breeds of dogs, providing they are not classed as dangerous and are not used for protection purposes. The reason that most Spanish insurance’s increase from year to year is because of a clause that is usually integrated where by the insured capitals are increased every year in accordance with inflation, if you do not require this you would usually need to opt out. Obviously the covers and legalities differ from company to company, if you are unsure of anything covered by your policy contact your insurer directly or via your agent.

Nurses don’t have to wear skirts, court says

NURSES at a private clinic in Cádiz should not be obliged to wear skirts, ruled the Supreme Court. This reversed an earlier High Court ruling after nurses from the San Rafael private clinic complained of discrimination. Unlike male nurses or female operating theatre nurses, they had to wear skirts, aprons and caps, they said, and were penalised if they did not observe the dress code. The High Court found in favour of the clinic, saying it did not detect discrimination in the regulations and defended a company’s right to impose uniform. “It was a blow, but we always thought that they’d say we were right. And if they didn’t we believed our fight would at least help those in the future,” said Nurse Adela Sastre. The wait was shorter than

she and her companions, who want scrubs on health and hygiene grounds as well as equality, feared. Imposing skirts was discriminatory, not objective and belonged to other times, ruled the Supreme Court, quoting Article 14 of the Spanish Constitution which declares that all Spaniards are equal. Nevertheless, skirts are dress uniform for female

members of Spain’s armed forces with trousers a requisite when they are armed. Otherwise, the choice is theirs, said the Defence ministry. Women members of the Policia Nacional and Guardia Civil wear trousers at all times although they can wear a skirt for dress uniform if preferred. But discrimination cuts both ways and some male

employees – in banks for instance – complain of bias. “Their female colleagues can wear what they like, but they have to wear suits and ties,” pointed out Almudena Fontecha, Equality spokeswoman for the trade union, UGT. “It’s something we should start thinking about,” she said.

Spanish King frustrated with speculation about his health

DON Juan Carlos said reports in some of the press make it seem as if he’s ready for his coffin. The King showed his irritation on Tuesday with reports which have appeared in some Spanish press recently speculating on the state of his health. Zarzuela Palace announced on Monday that the King is to undergo a knee operation within the next two weeks, but when journalists who were covering an event in Zarzuela on Tuesday asked him how he was, Don Juan Carlos responded, ‘I’m in a bad way, as you can see’. The King made it clear that his irritation does not extend to all members of the press, but to those whose speculation, he jokingly said, makes it seem as if he’s ‘on the point of death’ and ‘ready for his coffin’. The surgery the 74 year old king will undergo on his right knee will be his fourth operation for a sports injury. He also had a benign nodule removed from a lung last year.

A lower amount has been set for the ‘semi-

a red light. It’s understood that no action will be taken against those who are seen in a bathing costume on the paseo marítimo or on the streets nearest to the beach, and the by-law does not affect the city’s nudist beach, La Duna, on Mar Bella.

Talks have been continuing over the past few months with women who ply their trade in Málaga’s Guadalhorce industrial estate, who have been refusing to go until City Hall finds them a new location so they can carry on working to support their families. The problem in finding a suitable site has been that it must comply with the bylaw in being more than 200 metres away from a residential area, school or business and commercial premises, in order to avoid any fines being issued. It was reported on Tuesday that City

Hall has now proposed a location which could put an end to the conflict. It’s on the Guadalhorce estate and it’s understood that the Ayuntamiento will be making improvements to the site, including improving access and installing rubbish bins. The prostitutes who work in the area recently set up

the first sex workers’ association in Málaga province, Amttse, which the paper indicates was formed as a direct result of the new bylaw.Their president, Tatiana García, told the paper that their initial aim was to find a location where they could work without being fined, but she hopes that in the future it will allow them to provide courses for training in alternative professions to allow some of their members to leave their work on the streets.

POLITICAL INSIGHT

With Brian Harrison

Carme Chacón “steps back” from Presidential campaign

THE Spanish Defence Minister , Carme Chacón, last week announced her resignation to stand for primary elections for the Presidency of the PSOE. She stated that internal tensions within the political party had led to this decision, as she had previously indicated that she would run for leadership after current President Zapatero announced he would not run for the 2012 general elections. Just a few days prior to Chacón’s resignation,

she stated that she was in agreement with many aspects of the manifesto published by the 15M movement, who are currently demonstrating throughout mainland Spain and the Canary Islands against corruption within administrations, courts and the media. In her resignation speech, she outlined many of

the proposals which she would have included

Spanish parliament backs three-month international military intervention in Libya WHILE all the countries in the coalition share a political goal - Gadhafi’s removal from power - “not everyone agrees whether this is the military aim,” said Shashank Joshi, an analyst with London-based Royal United Services Institute Spanish parliament backs three-month international military intervention in Libya The Spanish parliament on Tuesday overwhelmingly backed the country’s participation in the international Page 18

military intervention in Libya, which the government expects to last for up to three months. Parliament endorsed the intervention with 336 votes. Only three legislators voted against it while one abstained. Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Spanish fighter- bomber planes would participate in enforcing a no-fly zone above Libya for one month, and that the navy would help to maintain an arms em-

bargo against Libya for three months. Four Spanish F-18 bombers and a tanker plane are already participating in enforcing the no-fly zone. A frigate, a submarine and a maritime surveillance plane would help to make sure no weapons are taken to Libya, Zapatero said. The operation will mobilize a total of about 500 Spanish soldiers. Zapatero described the intervention as ‘legitimate’ and as being based on humani-

within her campaign, mainly focused upon radical political and administrative reforms and new laws to enforce transparency in all public organisations. Shortly afterwards, interior minister Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba stated that he would run for election, and received the full backing of the PSOE party.

Carme Chacón

POLTICAL COMMENT party ranks for one reason; the party has too many skeletons in their closet, skeletons which Chacón would not think twice about cleaning out. Let’s hope that PSOE’s loss will be the country’s gain. Whilst stopping short of declaring her full alliance with 15M, she has indicated that she is prepared to work on

“numerous parallel projects”. As 15M are taking the first steps towards the creation of an infrastructure resembling a political movement, the unfolding of events over the next few weeks and months just might persuade like minded politicians to jump ship. Either way, we haven’t seen the last of Carme Chacón.

tarian principles. The tion, saying it defended goal was not to oust hidden ‘geostrategic, Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, but to ‘put an end to the killings of his people,’ the premier told parliament. Far-left and Galician regionalist legislators criticized the interven-

political and economic interests.’

After the disastrous results which the PSOE encountered in last week’s local elections, Carme Chacón was the party’s only hope of salvation for the forthcoming general elections. She’s young, energetic, intelligent and a large proportion of voters identify with her. So it can only be deduced that she was pulled back by the

Regional Catalunyan police caught attacking and physically assulting passive 15M protesters

WHILST the G8 summit was being held, where world leaders publicly appraised the “Arab Spring” uprising, Los Mossos (the Catalunyan regional police) were caught on several video cameras assulting and violently beating protesters at Barcelona’s Plaza Cataluña.

Video footage revealed that the attacks were unprovoked, many of the victims were seated on the plaza with their hands raised in the air, conforming with the 15M protocol of “absolute non-violence”. The local authorities had previously cut the plaza’s webcams before ordering in the Mossos to “clean the Plaza”, claiming that they wanted the plaza clear of protests before a football match, (Barcelona played in Wembley, the UK, the same evening). Catalunyan interior counsellor, Felip Puig, authorised the assult on the 27th of May and offered his full support to

police chief Joan Carles Molinero. Within hours, hundreds of thousands had viewed the footage on the internet, and several thousands joined the protesters at the Plaza Cataluña. At this time, many international reporters were on the scene, and the violence subsided. Brian Harrison, Political Editor

The entire 15M Movement is an embarassment to both the current government, bringing national and international attention to commonplace cor-

POLTICAL COMMENT rution. Spain’s interior minister, Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, would not risk his little remaining chances in the next general elections by ordering an assult on protesters

in Madrid, but by causing friction in Barcelona, was concievably banking on a violent backlash from protesters elsewhere. This was not to be; 15M had pre-

viously calculated for this eventuality, and had passed an act within their assembly not to react to violence with further violence under any circumstances.

Black Eyed Peas choose Madrid

Say hello to your new X Factor judges! With Cheryl Cole still not returning anyone’s calls over her humiliating sacking from the US X Factor, UK bosses had no choice but to plough on and keep their fingers crossed.

Arriving at the first auditions in Birmingham for the next series of the show, where crowds were surprisingly warm towards the new judges, Take That star Barlow said that he is looking

Gaga’s Monster tour taking its toll?

Left to right: Louis Walsh, Kelly Rowland, host Dermot O’Leary, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow

forward to working with the other new faces on the show, N-Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos and former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland. Although he did admit that he was “disappointed” that Cheryl Cole is not appearing on The X Factor UK, but that he had been sending her texts of support as she is a good friend. However, he added: “The other two girls are going to be great. I love Tulisa - I’ve worked with N-Dubz before and I love working with them. She’s great and is going to bring a whole new dimension to the show.”

Nadine Coyle has split from her fiancé Jason Bell The Girls Aloud star, who announced her engaged to the former American football player in September, says the break-up was a mutual decision and the pair remain friends. "A few weeks ago Jason and i broke up (sic)," Coyle wrote on her Twitter account. "We are great friends and

decided we are better this way. Im in NYC working & I love all your support.x" The Northern Irish singer had been dating 35-yearold Bell for the past two years. The news comes after it was revealed that Nadine will be reuniting with band mates Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts for a tour in 2012.

These chaps are new too! More last minute changes to the X Factor saw Matt Edmondson out on his ear and Olly Murs in place to host the Xtra Factor. Just hours before filming Simon Cowell dumped Matt and fast tracked 2009 X Factor runner up to take his place and hires Caroline Flack to keep him company. Unsurprisingly Matt is said to be ‘devastated’ as he thought the gig was his, while former X Factor finalist Olly couldn’t be happier. Murs said, “The X Factor is the show that put me where I am so I’m chuffed to be involved again, this time to work on it from the other side and see some new stars coming through.” How much do you want to bet there’s another change to the line-up before the week’s out?

No more?

Page 30

THE Black Eyed Peas have chosen Madrid for their only concert in Spain on July 14, to promote their new album, ‘The Beginning’. The US foursome will perform at the Vicente Calderon stadium and tickets will be available in June for between €40 and €120, from www.ticketmaster.es and on 902 150 025.

Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have reportedly experienced "tension" in their friendship in recent weeks. According to US Weekly, Aniston is disappointed with

Cox for spending time with male Cougar Town co-stars Brian van Holt and Josh Hopkins while still technically married to estranged husband David Arquette.

You wouldn't think the world's biggest pop star would have money worries, right? Well, Lady Gaga says her latest tour left her facing bankruptcy. The 25-yearold star has admitted she was left £1.82million in debt after her Monster Ball tour, which ran for 18 months and 200 shows. It wasn't news to dampen her spirits, though. Gaga told the

Financial Times: "Other than that I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the Monster Ball. And it was funny because I didn't know. "I remember I called everybody and said, 'Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five No. 1 singles' and they said, 'Well, you're $3m in debt.'

Coleen’s Twitter Rant What good is social networking without the occasional rant? Just ask Coleen Rooney. The footballer's wife let her emotions do the talking, following a spat with one of her 183,000 Twitter followers. The mum-of-one posted a picture of her and husband Wayne enjoying a pub lunch at the weekend, causing fans to leave comments on the photo. While most were complimentary, one user wrote: "Look how orange yu are n how ugly ya rich cheating husband is." (sic) Coleen was not amused and retaliated with: "Just seen ur profile pic. Are u feeling OK cause ur face looks very pale to ur body", after which she added "#dog". The row comes just weeks after Wayne hit the headlines with his own Twitter account, when he challenged a user who left an abusive message about the Manchester United player. Wayne replied: "I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don't gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I'll be waiting." Friendly!

OUT ON THE TOWN

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

Out On The Town By

The Night Hawk

Well here we are again. I can’t believe this is the third issue already. This week we have found a very talented singer who has been here in Tenerife for the last 8 years and in that time has made quite a name for himself; mainly for the diversity of his musical talents. So let me introduce you to: IAN ANDERSON……..and this is his story as told by Ian himself.

I first got into music at 3 years old, when my parents took me to a friend’s house, where there was a piano. Instead of just bashing it about, I picked out a tune on it, and from that point on, I was the “gifted child”, and subjected to music lessons in Piano, Church Organ, Singing, Composition and Theory of Music, until the age of 18. During my “classical period” I got to sing with both the Nottingham and Birmingham Choral Societies, and to solo with the City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Simon Rattle. At my school (Nottingham High School), there was a tradition of getting any older “6th Formers” who excelled in any subject to act as substitute teachers for the preparatory school. It was because of this that I ended up teaching music to one Ed Balls, who is now the shadow chancellor! I was playing the organ for church services from the age of 8, and was an assistant choirmaster to one of the largest choirs in the Midlands (St Peters, Leicester) at the age of 17. At 15, I started playing the piano and organ in local pubs, then at 16 became resident organist at “Carlton British Legion Club” in Nottingham. This was in the days when you would get quite big “semi-names” playing the working men’s clubs, so I ended up playing with people like Bert Wheedon and Geoff Domani (the then “Golden Guitar Of The World”). At 19, I left for Butlins in Skegness, and it was there that I started singing professionally. I arrived on my first day, expecting to be solely the musical director for the “Gaiety Theatre”. The Entertainments Manager then informed me that I would be hosting my own bar one night per week, and writing & producing the Redcoat Show for that year. I can honestly say I was hopeless at both Acting as a POW Camp Adjutant in “Jenny’s War” (!), but it introduced me to a “pop style” of singing, which I’d never done before, and gave me my love of producing stage shows. Over the years, I’ve probably played holiday parks of just about every tour company, including Butlins, Pontins, Ladbrokes, Haven, and a

www.tenerifeweekly.es

few unheard-of private companies. I’ve also been around the whole North East, Walse & Scotland club circuits at least three times each. During that time, I was also doing a fair bit of TV acting. Biggest role was “POW Camp Adjutant” in “Jenny’s War”, where the director said of me [Quote]: Excellent! You looked like a right b*****d! One day in late 2002, I was sitting in a 2 hr traffic jam on the M1, on the way to a gig in Newcastle, when I thought “I’m sick of this. It’s not a singing job anymore, it’s a driving job”. That was when I made the decision to move abroad. A few weeks later, I went to a travel agent, asked what cheap tickets they had, and they had Tenerife for 30 quid. I bought the ticket, flew here on May 16th 2003, and never looked back, except to collect my car and possessions from the UK and drive them over here in August of the same year. Since being in Tenerife, I was resident for 18 months at Coconut Joe’s which gave me a broader insight into the cabaret scene here on the rock(From 2004 to 2006), continuing right through to 2009 then as a relief compere. I’ve worked in quite a few of the top hotels, and a lot of bars from Los Gigantes to Las Americas doing a variety of shows including Showstoppers, Swingers and Crooners, Souled Out The Phantom of the Opera and Decades which just about covers all genres of popular music. I thoroughly enjoy my life here on the gorgeous island of Tenerife and consider myself lucky to be doing a job I love. If you want to mention X-Factor, say I’m still waiting to hear if I’m through, but I’m hopeful. I’m not allowed to say any more than that until I get a release from Talkback Thames.

Thanks to Ian for using his precious time to give Tenerife Weekly this interview. Remember, wherever or whenever you’re performing in Tenerife, I may be watching! The Night Hawk

Stressed?

&

Medical science has admitted to the effects that stress can have on our physical health. For example, studies have shown that stress plays a major role in certain heart conditions such as stroke and cardiac arrest, perhaps a larger role than even diet or other

aspects of lifestyle like having regular exercise. But how does one find the main causes of stress in his life if it seems that everything already feels very stressful? There are actually root causes of stress that can be identified in nearly every individual:

1. The first root cause of stress is fear. Experts believe that babies are born with only two fears, the fear of loud noises and the fear of falling. So where did adults get all the hundreds of fears that they have? Of course, the type of fear that really induces stress is not necessarily phobic fears, such as fear of the dark or claustrophobia, because these would only happen when the trigger is present. Much more dangerous is the fear of intangible things, such as the fear of failure, fear of not having enough, and fear of an uncertain future. These things can eat up inside of you because they can accompany you everywhere, even as you are trying to fall asleep. If they succeed in causing you to worry so as to suffer insomnia, your stress issues will only be compounded! As such it is important to deal with these fears that you may already know intellectually as unreasonable.

you, or actually doing those bad things to yourself, such as ruining relationships or even afflicting personal harm to yourself. This is, in large part, a reason why many people resort to slashing. Many people are set free from this harmful cycle when they believe that the Supreme Being in charge of everything already paid the price by being cursed in your place.

Understanding sugar-free sweeteners From saccharin to sucralose, what’s the difference?

Anyone who is dieting, or at least trying to watch what they eat, is familiar with the wide variety of sugar substitutes available in the marketplace today. However, most people remain mystified regarding the origin and safety issues attached to all these sugar substitutes. Worse yet, they have no idea which one to choose or if one is even better than another. Let’s try to take away some of that mystery and pull back the veil to uncover the many options available. The purpose of a sugar

Page 32

substitute is to sweeten like a sugar without delivering too much food energy, which can re-

sult in mild to severe insulin spike. With diabetes at epidemic proportions, cutting sugar intake has become a necessity in today’s world. The sugar substitutes with which people are most familiar are synthetic or “artificial” in nature. How-

Fashion

ever, there are some that are natural, coming from Mother Nature, very much like sugar itself. Many of these sweeteners are concentrated and require less of the product to achieve the desired sweetness level. A few can be used across the board either to sweeten food or drink as well as for cooking. Others are tricky and vary greatly according to the type of sweetener. Some lose their composition or sweetness when heated and are therefore not recommended for use in baking.

Many people have found relief from them by entrusting their lives to a Divine Being who loves them enough to give Himself for them. 2. Another root cause of stress is condemnation. Even if you do not consider yourself highly conscientious, there will always be certain areas in your life that you feel you have failed, whether by your own standards or on other people’s standards. Or perhaps, you may wind up hurting other people and feel bad about it. This feeling of guilt is very difficult, if not impossible, to shake off unless you feel that it has been paid for. It is inherent in every human heart to know that every wrongdoing deserves punishment, and until you accept that it has been paid somehow, you will unconsciously demand punishment for yourself, whether by believing you deserve bad things to happen to

3. A third lesser known root cause of stress is placing unnecessary demands on oneself. When the pressure comes from outside forces, such as work deadlines, peer pressure, family problems and other things, they may be easy to pinpoint. But if you are the one unconsciously putting undue pressure on yourself, it may not be as easy to identify. For example, you might have certain goals for yourself that are really unrealistic. When you fail to meet them, you may wind up beating yourself up

over it. These goals can be achievement-based or perhaps behaviour-based, such as not getting angry at your toddler son. When you blow it, you wind up feeling like you are not a good parent. This will also lead you down to the condemnation road, which you will also need to deal with. Even if it doesn’t lead you to condemn yourself, constantly putting demands on yourself will result in a very stressed life; as such you need to learn to loosen up and just enjoy life. These root causes of stress may not be the conventional ones you hear about in science class, but once you pinpoint them, you will understand that a lot of the main stressful factors in your life are actually related to them! At least now you will have some idea how to deal with them and get to enjoy more of your days without the unnecessary stress, and you will see yourself becoming healthier too!

Asses’ milk helps you lose weight! Cleopatra famously bathed in it as part of her beauty regime. But now a study claims that asses’ milk could be a good way to lose weight and protect your heart. Researchers have found that milk from donkeys, which was still being drunk in Victorian times, contains less fat and is more nutritious than cow’s milk. They also found that it be a natural protection to the heart as it contains omega three and six fatty acids, similar to fish oil, which reduce cholesterol. As it is also much closer to human milk it could be used in young children who are allergic to normal dairy products. High levels of calcium that make it good for your bones add to its health giving properties. The study at the University

of Naples, Italy, compared the effect of donkey milk compared to cow’s milk in diet and health. In experiments, they found that the cow’s milk and donkey milk provided the same amount of energy but that the latter caused more weight gain as it raised metabolism. Rodents that were given the donkey milk also showed lower levels of triglycerides, unhealthy fats that affect the heart, and less stress on the metabolic system. The study, which was presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Istanbul, concluded that it’s “consumption should be encouraged”. Earlier research has shown

that it could even be better than semi-skimmed, soya or formula milk, especially in young children as it contains high levels of calcium for bones. It’s make up is very similar to human breast milk and because it is low in proteins it can be used in young children who are allergic to proteins in cows’ milk.

Aging is always a major concern among people, especially women. And it is an inevitable process that anyone needs to deal with. This further emphasizes the need to know some basic truths about aging in order to make sure that the things you can do will indeed be beneficial. There are many myths that many people believe

wrongly and if you do not know them, you may wind up letting many products rip you off without delivering their promised benefits. You will need to understand these myths in order to make sure that you make an informed decision about things you want to use in improving the look of your skin.

1. The first myth that many people buy into is that genes determine how fast one’s skin ages. This is actually a mixed statement. Genes are typically the core reason that leads to tissue degeneration. For example, some come with good genes while others really come born with a gene that gives them a higher tendency to develop age spots, known as seborrhoieic keratosis. But genes are not all that determine how fast one’s skin ages; extrinsic factors like exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun, lifestyle, diet, and exposure to pollution, also play a major role on how fast your skin will age. 2. People also believe that face creams can effectively eliminate wrinkles and

your skin while protecting it against harsh factors in the environment such as dry climate, pollution, and the sun. 3. Some people believe that creams are not as effective as higher-technology methods like plastic surgery or lasers. Certainly, creams and other topical skincare products typically take a longer time to show apparent results, but it does not mean they are less effective. The truth is that they are simply less dramatic, as it comes with a longer time to show results. 4. A fourth myth is that certain ethnic skin types can age faster than others. Of course, darker skin has more melanin which protects the skin from sun damage, and Caucasian

other symptoms of ageing. Every beauty product comes with claims to target ageing, but nobody can say definitely if a certain cream or serum does indeed works. Of course, certain ingredients may have been proven to produce very good results. For example, alpha hydroxy acids, retinol, beta hydroxy acids, aminopeptides, and vitamins are considered very effective components found in beauty care products. The thing to remember though is that the ingredients need to be used in the correct formulation and concentration. They are typically designed to speed up the cell renewal rate, without necessarily erasing the signs of ageing but will instead improve the condition of

Get your five-a-day! It’s no secret that the fashion industry gets fixated on some pretty strange things and it’s fruit all the way this season.

Eat less, live longer?

Calorie restriction regimes - the science behind the claims

We are living in an era where women strive to be the ubiquitous size 0 (UK: size 4). About 5 years ago, most of us didn’t even know this size existed, and prior to watching ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, I thought it was a made-up size for 10-14 year olds, not a real dress size for grown-up women. It may surprise you therefore to learn that there is a movement which has been gathering momentum over the decades which claims that eating less will help you to live longer. I first came across this about 20 years ago watching a documentary about an experiment in America on a small group of people. The group was really too small to show

any proven results but the idea was there. Much research has been done since the 1930s, mainly comparing a group of calorie restricted animals with a control group of normally-fed ones. The experiments revealed that calorierestricted mice lived l o n g e r and were h e a l t h i e r, more active

and more mentally alert than their unrestricted counterparts.

WILDE’S WORLD

Welcome to this weeks instalment of the daft and just plain stupid news from around the world.

Tortoise ‘wheely’ on the move again

Helicopter called in to catch teenager

Police have been accused of overreacting after sending up a helicopter to hunt a teenager who kicked a football through a greenhouse window. The 15-year-old smashed the pane of glass while playing with friends in the back garden of a pub in Chalgrove, near Oxford. But within 30 minutes the helicopter had been sent from another job to “locate the youth” by two police officers attending the scene. The incident was logged as criminal damage by police officers, who defended the use of the helicopter by claiming it was already in the area. But staff and customers accused the police of a “gross overreaction”, reports the Oxford Mail. Pub manager Emma Arnold said she was “gobsmacked” when she saw the police helicopter. She said: “It was a gross overreaction. It was a complete accident when the young lad mis-kicked the ball and it hit the greenhouse. “I couldn’t believe it when they sent two officers and the helicopter. Since when did a youngster accidentally kicking a ball into a greenhouse becomes criminal damage?” Police spokesman Rebecca Webber said: “Thames Valley Police would not deploy the force helicopter for low level crimes such as criminal damage, “However if the helicopter is already airborne and in the area they may be asked to assist by officers on the ground, as happened in this case”

Mind Your P’s and Q’s

Australians may have a love of plain speaking but new laws are set to curtail some of their more colourful language with police issuing on-the-spot fines for obnoxious swearing. The country’s second most populous state Victoria is due to approve new legislation this week under which police will be able to slap

A tortoise is now faster than her friends after having a wheel fitted to replace a missing leg. Tuly lost a front leg when it was horrifically gnawed off by a rat while she was hibernating. But now, thanks to a toy car wheel and some Velcro, she is fully mobile again - and her pals are finding it hard to keep up. Philip Chubb, 64, whose daughter Eleanor runs a local Tortoise group in Norwich, made the prosthetic limb. He said: “Tuly came to us after the vets operated to save her life last year. She was mobile but very off balance and slow. “She was rubbing away her shell because it was scraping along the ground when she walked. It was a problem that would have lead to more complications.” Mr Chubb bought a toy tractor at a car boot sale and removed one of the wheels. Then he made a brace out of metal and Velcro strips. He added: “Her balance was corrected. She didn’t look like a sinking ship anymore and then she just took off. “She clearly didn’t mind having it on and seemed delighted to scoot off to feed on the weeds. She’s now actually the fastest tortoise we have which is rather funny.”

fines of up to Aus$240 (US$257) on people using offensive words or phrases. Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark said the penalties, similar to those issued for speeding or parking illegally, would free up police time. “This will give the police the tools they need to be able to act against this sort of obnoxious behaviour on the spot, rather than having to drag offenders off to court and take up time and money in proceedings,” he said. But even the state’s top lawyer admitted to swearing sometimes. “Occasionally I mutter things under my breath as probably everybody does,” he told ABC radio. “But this law is not targeted at that, it’s targeted at the sort of obnoxious, offensive behaviour in public that makes life unpleasant for everybody else.”

After the ash, Iceland gets new volcanic fragrance A designer who shot to fame with a line of perfume inspired by last year’s flight-halting Eyjafjoell volcano said Monday she would launch a new fragrance drawn from last week’s eruption on Iceland. After launching “EFJ Eyjafjallajoekull,” a women’s perfume made from melt water from the glacier sitting on top of the Eyjafjoell volcano that erupted in April last year, Sigrun Lilja Gudjonsdottir said she would soon launch the “VJK Vatnajoekull,” a fragrance for men named after the glacier that straddles Grimsvoetn. “When the eruption started (on May 21), my heart really started to beat real fast,” Gudjonsdottir told AFP, adding that she had quickly decided to rethink and rebrand a perfume already several months in the works. “I said to myself, ok, now we really have to speed things up,” she said. The new fragrance will also be made of glacial melt water and, like last year, will be made in Grasse, France’s perfume capital. While the final scent has yet to be decided upon, Gudjonsdottir said it would be a “very masculine” fragrance that would evoke the power of of Grimsvoetn, which initially spewed ash 20 kilometres (12 miles) into the air. And there should be plenty of melt water available: Iceland’s most active volcano, which was declared dead Monday, sits at the heart of Europe’s biggest glacier. The “VJK Vatnajoekull” is expected to hit stores in the second half of the year, with the aim of repeating the success of its predecessor, which sold more than 2,000 bottles at a cost of about 80 euros ($115) for 100 millilitres.

Kodak moment

And now for this week’s local story, with the arrival last week of some of Sky Sports finest, one island resident took a photo opportunity too far. Max Rushden, Paul Merson, Phil Thompson, Chris Kamara along with other well known personalities teamed up to play a charity golf match and also to hold an evening benefit to raise money. One local resident who attended was a bit put off with the queuing to have a photo with the celebs that he thought to wait till later to seize the opportunity. Later that evening seeing Chris Kamara by himself, he approached the TV commentator and asked if he would mind a quick photo. Quick to oblige, this cheeky chap only identified as S.B handed the camera to Kamara and stood next to the barmaid and smiled! That’s all for this week I will be back on the island next week after my little road trip across Europe you can catch me live every Saturday only on Coast FM or if you have a quirky news story from Tenerife email me ray@tenerifeweekly.es.

COMMUNITY MATTERS

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

Well it’s now June and all the “swallows” have flown home leaving empty seats in all the churches in the south. The empty seats do not matter as much as the lack of people to fill many of the positions. This means that the load is shouldered by those who live and work here full time. This is then compounded by the fact that residents and workers also want to take summer holidays and so even fewer are left to hold the fort. Fortunately all is not lost as some people enjoy helping out when they come for their summer break in the sun, while others choose to come to Tenerife specifically to assist the smaller congregations. I´m sure they still manage to go home with a suntan. group helped to work with four of the local churches,

A good example of this was in the last couple of weeks when Calvary Assembly International Church were reinforced by a party of twenty two university students from SHSU Chi Alpha, who came over to help the church with mission work. SHSU Chi Alpha is a group of over one thousand Christian students in university education in Texas, For almost two weeks this

taking part in services and telling people about their faith in Jesus Christ. In addition, they ran events in a

couple of local parks for local children and residents. As some of the group were bi-lingual and others studying Spanish at university, the group spent a day at La Laguna University. They travelled and visited different parts of Tenerife and even managed to include a working trip to La Gomera. It wasn’t all work, though, as they were able to fit in some sight-seeing on both islands.

USEFUL INFORMATION

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

WEEKLY

HOROSCOPES Aries - Mar 21-Apr19

This is likely to be a day full of surprises - most of which you find delightful even if they also provoke strong reaction. Weekend leisure plans could take on new urgency and possibly be prompted by the need for a celebration. In all this, there’s danger of you promising too much and/or spending a bonus several times over - and before it’s even in your pocket.

Taurus - Apr20-May20

Positive financial news that affects both you and a partner could be the result of an expected windfall but which happens so suddenly as to take your breath away. Less pleasant could be news related to a car - or even to siblings who seem to have the (unhappy) knack of knowing how to burst your bubble.

Gemini - May 21-June 20

A health-related matter might demand your undivided attention: good news here being that you could meet an ‘expert’ whom you immediately warm to. A move to a better environment or even a small adjustment to a desk could brighten your day too. Skill with a computer game or new phone could gain you admiration from a younger person.

Cancer - June 21-July 22

You could feel cash-strapped - but perhaps not for long. Matters could take on new urgency today leaving you by turns bewildered then delighted. The only problem in this is that a decision will eventually have to be made. Decoding a price structure promises to be every bit as mentally challenging as the most sophisticated of puzzles.

Leo - July 23-Aug 22

Curbing excess is unlikely to be easy - even to the point of spending cash you don’t have (credit cards). Others seem to want to please you (perhaps they’re afraid of your reaction if they don’t). High drama’s possible - especially if your financial plans are thwarted. Customer services departments could be tested by a few Leos - though, of course, you could make these dealings memorable in another way: by going on a charm offensive.

Virgo - Aug 23-Sept22

You might need to be in two places at once: partly because someone does the unpredictable (now normal for them), and reschedules a meeting. You might feel you positively need to be there - even if it means going out of your way. You might also wish to give someone unqualified support simply be being with them as they face difficult news. Your party sub-personality could surface, encouraging you to be the first to make plans for the weekend.

Libra - Sept 23-Oct 22

Stretching your budget might seem like the right thing to do - especially if a labour-saving device is involved. You’re likely to be attracted to top of the range too. Curbing excess might be best be done by taking a thrifty friend with you. A loud-voiced colleague could take you back with a demand, making it likely you’ll adjust your schedule to accommodate their needs and so restore harmony.

Scorpio - Oct 23- Nov 21

Bringing out strong reactions in others is likely. You might be perceived as dogged, stubborn and difficult when in fact, you think you’re being loyal, working with integrity and ensuring the best of outcomes. Deflecting tension with humour is likely. A satirical magazine could amuse you too. In fact, you might even draw a cartoon that sums up a situation exactly.

Your nerves could be stretched whilst waiting for an outcome. (Patience not being your strong point). The good-humour and understanding of someone who’s clearly skilled in their field might help. You might also benefit from displacement activity. A little domestic change or an impromptu journey is possible: as is contact with someone who’s a bit of a geek. Friends might point out that you’re over-stretching yourself. You probably know that. You may have decided that if something’s worth doing it’s worth doing well - and throwing every possible resource in that direction. What you might not have factored in is the quirkiness of someone’s dealings and their stubbornness.

Aquarius - Jan 19-Feb18

Both at work and at home you could be stretched every-which-way. It might seem that someone’s being outrageously demanding (though they might think the same about you). Your ability to adjust to new circumstances - including viewing the world from a literally different perspective could be tested - as could your sense of humour.

Pisces - Feb 19-Mar20 You might have every justification for throwing a tantrum at work. Those same talents could be put to good use in an amateur dramatic setting. Your talent for the theatrical might even be put to good use at a meeting where a ‘good cop, bad cop’ routine is thought to be necessary. Your love-life could benefit from a variation on this energy: perhaps in the planning of a surprise.

Pets’ Corner Are you aware of Tenerife’s Dangerous Dogs laws? Every country has particular rules on owning certain dogs and they sometimes get overlooked here given the laid-back nature of living on the island. It is sensible, however, to bear in mind the laws regarding dog ownership before getting one or even if you are a current dog owner. Below lists the various points to the dog laws here in Tenerife, not intended to scare anyone, merely to ensure you are clued up so as to enjoy your four legged friend to the utmost. “Dangerous Dogs”, a general definition according to Royal Decree 287/2002 which itself is a continuation of 50/1999. Dogs considered “potentially dangerous” are: 1. Those belonging to any of the following breeds and their crosses:

PAWS FOR THOUGHT

Lety is just 4 months old and very friendly. She has bundles of energy and is a real beauty. She needs a home urgently.

3 Chihuahua/Collie mix pups need homes. They have been wormed and are ready to go now. Utterly gorgeous and have been brought up with their mother from birth.

Pit Bull Terrier Staffordshire Bull Terrier American Staffordshire Terrier Rottweiler Dogo Argentino Fila Brasileiro Tosa Inu Akita Inu

2. Those animals that have all or many of the following characteristics: Strong musculature, powerful or athletic constitution, robustness, agility, vigor and endurance. Strong character and

marked courage. Short hair. Thoracic perimeter between 60 and 80 cm, shoulder height of between 50 and 70 cm, and weight over 20 kg.

GARDENING

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

The Tenerife Gardener

How to achieve a summer garden in a warm climate

Rescue a trouble spot in your garden where hot sun makes growing delicate flowers impossible. Substitute sturdy plants that thrive in bright, sunny conditions to turn that difficult area into a lively, colourful focal point. Work compost into the soil before planting and use mulch to retain moisture around the flowers’ roots. A combination of annuals and perennials in the hot spot delivers a full season of beauty.

Fern leaf yarrow grows in poor soil, hot sun and is drought resistant. These qualities, along with the gold-coloured flower heads and lacy gray-green foliage make this perennial a top choice for garden hot spots. Mature yarrow plants grow as tall as 4 feet high and 3 feet wide, making them suitable for filling a large area with summertime colour. Pick yarrow flowers before they begin to produce pollen and hang to dry for wintertime dried flower arrangements.

Yarrow Celosia

Zinnias

Plant Zinnia seeds directly in the soil when the outdoor temperature warms up to 70 F. Choose the tallest varieties, like Splendour, for the back of a flower bed. Smaller dwarf zinnias such as Lollipop and Small World work well at the front of the bed where their vivid colours mirror heat and brightness on hot, sunny days. Zinnias are annuals and make delightful cut flower bouquets to bring indoors.

Celosia, also known as cockscomb, lifts its colourful blooms on sturdy spike-like stems that rise above bright green foliage. Celosia varieties range in colour from deep yellow to bright red, and in size from 6 inches to nearly 3 feet tall. Resilient, even in poor soil, heat and drought conditions, this herbaceous annual provides drama when mass planted in your garden’s trouble spot. Yucca is a low-maintenance evergreen that thrives in tough conditions. Ideal for an urban landscape, rock garden or in a border, yucca tolerates drought, pollution and high heat. Also known as Adam’s needle, the plant has narrow spear-shaped leaves with sharp-pointed tips. The creamy white flowers emerge in summer, hanging like bells from tall stalks rising from the centre of the yucca plant. Remove the stalks after the blooms have died to enjoy the green symmetry of yucca year round.

D.I.Y.

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

Welcome to Tenerife Weekly

Trade Counter

Basic Tips for D.I.Y.

1. Plan the work. If you plan the work before you start the finished product will be much more satisfactory. Have all the materials, tools & safety equipment to hand. 2. Safety. Make sure that the work area is safe & you have the correct tools for the intended job. Don’t make do with the wrong tools. Never rush. Accidents can easily occur when you do. 3. Follow instructions. Read instructions so that mistakes are kept to a minimum & you do not have to re-do things.

DIY Rating

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

If these simple guidelines are followed you will find that most small jobs are possible, even the ones you feared trying before. Give it a go, keep safe & good luck!

Repairing Concrete

There are many times when we would use concrete. From basic repair work through to professional standard, structural concreting, it is certainly highly advisable to seek professional guidance when structural concreting is being undertaken. For example, lintels over openings or footings for extensions, however small repair work can easily be carried out to crumbling path edges etc. For repair work first remove all of the affected loose concrete & dust. Then prime the area with a building PVA. For small amounts of concrete it is fine to hand mix the concrete in a bucket, using a 4:1 ratio of ballast to cement. Put the ballast & cement in the bucket & add water, mixing until a sloppy consistency is achieved. Put the mix into the space to be concreted & tamp the concrete with a float or straight edge, until the water & cement rises to the surface. Now wait until the concrete starts to dry & after the water has disappears trowel with a metal float to bring the water back. Keep repeating this process until the concrete really stiffens. This process of drawing the water & cement to the surface produces a harder finish & dust proofs the concrete. Once the basic technique is understood,

www.tenerifeweekly.es

larger areas can be tackled. But remember that larger areas may require steel reenforcing, so seek advice if you are unsure. For larger areas like paths or drives, you may want to consider hiring a mixer or even having a delivery of ready mixed concrete. You can work out the volume of concrete needed by simply multiplying the width, length, and depth of the area. For example: an area 2m wide by 4m length ad 15cm deep would be 2x4x0.15. This is 1.2 cubic metres of concrete.

You had better call in the professionals!

TECHNOPHILE

June 3rd - June 9th 2011

TECHNOPHILE Welcome to this week’s Technophile page.

Every week we ask you to get in touch with your questions, queries and problems regarding all things technical and computery and get in touch you do! Here is a question which seem to be asked a lot:

Question: Daniel by email says - “Why is my computer running so slow? I bought my laptop 5 years ago and over the last couple of years it has just got slower and slower. I don’t know why that should be as I am just using it for internet and rarely install new software on it. I use AVG antivirus and scan regularly so I don’t think its a virus.”

Answer - Another short question with an answer which will fill a page Daniel! You haven’t mentioned which operating system you’re using but exactly five years ago the only show in town was Windows XP, so we’ll proceed on the assumption that this is what is on your computer. Windows XP has now been available for a full decade and even though the excellent Windows 7 is gaining fast, XP will linger for a while yet quite simply because it works and does what many people require of it. The devil you know is solid, reliable and most all major bugs have been ironed out over time. XP is not without its drawbacks though – as time passes, it does tend to become bloated and sluggish. After five years, you have two broad options - first aid or complete overhaul. The former is quicker, simpler and less risky and the latter, while the most effective solution, is not for the complete novice and there are pitfalls to be aware of. In this case the laptop has only been used to browse the net so perhaps an overhaul (factory reset) would be best. At this point we must mention that any changes you make to your computer are AT YOUR OWN RISK - we cannot accept responsibility for any damage caused. If you are not comfortable doing what is suggested here, consult a professional and save yourself a lot of hassle. Most laptops come with a “reset to factory setting” option which in theory should revert your machine to the state it was in on the day you bought it - check the manual for instructions about this. Before taking the plunge, bear in mind that this is the most destructive option - you need to take stock of what’s on your computer and what you need to back up. You will lose all the programs you have installed since you bought the computer and all the files which you have saved too. Also all those little customisations and tweaks your internet bookmarks, your desktop wallpaper and even the sound your computer makes when it switches on will be lost. First. make a list of the programs which you have installed on your computer which you still want to use – easiest way is to follow Start – Programs and see what´s there. Be sure that you either have cds to reinstall these later, or that you know where to find them for download from the internet. The most simple way to save all your documents and settings is to connect an external hard drive and copy your stuff to that. Then, when you have restored your laptop you simply copy it all back. Luckily, Windows XP comes with a handy little tool called the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard. It´s fairly self explanatory and easy to use so I´ll not go into too much detail but you can find it on

Page 44

your computer by following Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Files & Settings Transfer Wizard. Plug in an external drive, (or a flash drive if there´s not a lot) run the Wizard and it should save all your bits and pieces for you to restore once you have reset your system. Once and only once you are happy that you have all your files and settings backed up then you are ready to restore to factory settings. Follow the instructions in your laptop´s manual (will normally involve pressing a key or series of keys on startup) and then once this process is finished, run the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard again to restore your data. Also, don´t forget to run Windows Update to get all the patches and improvements which have been introduced since 1996! Et voila – you should be enjoying a smoother, faster computing experience! I must once again reiterate that this is a destructive process which will erase everything on your computer and you should only attempt it if you are comfortable with the procedures detailed here. For those who would rather not take this drastic move, I will be suggesting some “first aid” measures next week which should make your computer run a little more smoothly.

One final note though, which is applicable whichever of the suggested routes you decide to take.... I often find that computers running Windows XP, especially older models, suffer from a lack of RAM memory. This is the electronic “short term memory” which handles the current tasks your computer is dealing with, as opposed to your hard disk drive, which can be considered long term memory and storage. Windows XP will run much more smoothly with more RAM memory. To see how much is installed on your computer, hold down the Windows key (usually a Windows logo situated somewhere to the left of the space bar) and press the Break key (usually somewhere top right). This will display the System Properties page and on the right hand side near the bottom you´ll see your installed RAM memory in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB). For reference, 1GB is about 1000MB. 1 GB is ok, 2 is better. If you see something like 512MB or possibly even 256MB (you must enjoy waiting around!) then an upgrade is highly recommended.

Apple iPad 2 Review

Apple made a huge difference to the tablet market with its Apple iPad, and the Apple iPad 2 continues the company’s dominance. It offers beautiful quality, a great screen and an even better range of applications. Without a doubt, the most impressive thing about the Apple iPad 2 is its build quality. Constructed out of a solid piece of aluminum, with a bright and vivid glass display, it’s every bit the premium gadget. I also love the operating system on the Apple iPad 2. Unlike rival tablets, there are loads of apps that take full advantage of the iPad’s form factor, helping to turn the Apple into a genuinely useful device. The iPad 2 is also a perfect all-rounder when it comes to performance and usability, offering a decent battery life, quick responses and the ability to play the latest games without lag. My biggest problem with the Apple iPad 2 is its lack of ports. It’s a shame that there’s no USB port – making it impossible to easily hook up other devices without buying peripherals, and the need to use iTunes to copy your music across is also frustrating. But despite its failings, I still love the Apple iPad 2. The sheer quality and usability of Apples tablet makes it the choice of the field, with other products still lagging when it comes to apps, battery life or even build quality.

Next week, alongside the first aid measures promised, I´ll be detailing how to find out what kind of RAM memory your laptop requires and how to fit it. In the meantime, keep the questions and queries coming in!

The History of Car Brakes

In 1804 the first brakes invented used blocks of wood made to rub against wheel rims by a system of levers to slow the steamer down they were used on. Since then technological advances have helped make the cars we drive safer and easier to stop.

Disk Brakes

Brake pads

Drum brakes

Jaguar was the first to pioneer disk brakes in 1953. These brakes used a pair of friction pads to grip and slow a disc mounted to and spinning with

the wheel hub. They dissipated heat better and are far more resistant to fade, they give much more powerful stopping for longer than drum brakes.

Ceramic Brake Pads

In 1901 Maybach introduced the internally expanding drum brake. It used a ring of friction material pressed against the inside of a brake drum by rollers. The initial drum brakes made a horrific noise and didn’t initially catch on, so asbestos was added to make them quiter. In 1902, Louis Renault designed the definitive drum brakes that are still used today. Initially they were used on rear wheels only, for it was feared front brakes could causes skids. These are the earliest

form of brakes that are still in use. Drum braking uses pads that press against the inside of the wheel to stop the car. This form of braking uses a natural self applying quality that helps the pads bite into the wheel without the need to apply any additional force from the driver. The however has some disadvantages, they tend to overheat, and that can cause the pads to bend and cause vibration on the braking system. When pads overheat they can cause brake fade.

Ceramic brake pads offer great braking performance, wear well over time and are very lightweight all of which are important for high-performance driving. So what’s the problem with ceramic brake pads? They’re very expensive. Ceramic brake pads are made from ceramic fibers, filler material, bonding agents and they may even have small amounts of copper fibers within them as well. Because they’re mostly ceramic, these brake parts dis-

The pressure and friction applied to the brake disk is what slows and stops the wheel. Once the wheels stop turning, the vehicle stops moving, too. Though the role of brake pads as braking parts is pretty simple, the brake pads themselves are anything but. B¬ecause of how fast a vehicle’s wheels rotate and how much a typical car weighs, brake pads undergo extreme stress every time you slow down or come to a stop. There are two main types, ceramic and organic.

Organic Brake Pads

Brake pads were formerly manufactured using mainly asbestos as the friction material. That’s because brake pads are exposed to a lot of friction, which Question: Hi Graham, We have a 1996 Toyota Rav 4 which we have had generates a lot of heat. since new and we had chrome guards fitted over the headlights and the Asbestos is a good marear lights by the local Toyota Garage when we bought it.

Question & Answer

sipate heat well, which keeps performance strong, even after repeated hard stops. They also don’t break down very much with repeated use; that means they produce less dust than other types of brake pads -- and the dust that they do produce is lighter in color and doesn’t stick to the wheels. However, because they’re so expensive, ceramic brake pads aren’t for every type of vehicle. Sports cars that are routinely driven hard can benefit from ceramic brake pads.

There’s a lot more to effectively using your car’s braking system then simply stomping on the pedal. The braking systems of cars, trucks and motorcycles are made up of a number of parts that translate the driver’s actions into physical force that stops the car. One of those brake parts is your vehicle’s brake pads. Brake pads are a key brake part because they are the component that contacts and applies pressure and friction to a vehicle’s brake discs that you can sometimes see just behind the wheels of some vehicles.

are made from natural materials liked glass and rubber, as well as resins that can withstand high heat. In fact, the high heat helps to bind the brake pad materials together. An advantage of organic brake pads is that they’re made of materials that don’t pollute as they wear and they’re easier to dispose of, too. They’re also softer than brake pads made of other materials, which means they’re often quieter. The downside of organic brake pads is that, because they’re softer, they typically wear faster. As they wear, they also create more dust than other types of brake pads.

It All Came to an End First of all may I just say “Unlucky” to Manchester United? They tried their best but as we all know Barcelona are Millions of miles away in the level of football we love to watch. As a Manchester City fan I have to say I was all for Barca, however I sould be supporting the Team from the UK as my brother who

also is a City fan keeps telling me. I just cannot do it. Looking back to last week’s issue out Tommy (Tenerife Weekly’s very own Pundit), was so close to the score of 3-1. Never mind Tommy you will get one of your Predictions right soon I am sure. Also this week saw the end to a very long and Success-

ful career for Manchester United’s Paul Scholes who has now retired at the age of 36. Whilst with Manchester United the Boy from Langley in Middleton Greater Manchester , won 10 premier League winners medals, 3 FA Cup and 2 Champions League. That is some going for someone who is only 36 years old.

What now? Paul will be looking at taking up a coaching role for the future (Just hope they know what they are letting themselves in for), just imagine all the youth team players where ever he coaches will learn how to get sent off. As we all know his passion for the game has got him in trouble in the past.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been told that he will have to break the bank to have any chance of replacing Paul Scholes. Eric Harrison – the man who nurtured Scholes through United’s academy – insists only the world’s best can come close replicating the midfielder’s impact at Old Trafford. Even then, he says Ferguson will face one of the most difficult tasks of his 25 years in charge at the club when it comes to finding someone to step into the Ginger Magician’s shoes. And while Wesley Sneijder and Luka Modric are two of the main names in the frame to head to the Premier League champions, Harrison believes even they will struggle to reach the levels set by the 36-year-

old. “It will cost a fortune to replace him,” said the coach of United’s famed class of ‘92. “We’ve got to buy one of the best players in the world and to do that you’ve got to pay a lot of money.

job – but they are still not as good as Paul Scholes.” Ferguson has been scouring the globe for the past two years in the hope of finding a man to succeed Scholes. As well as Sneijder and

Modric, he has tracked Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Goetze and Brazilian star, Douglas Costa. Within the club he has Tom Cleverley, who is set to return from a seasonlong loan at Wigan, and Anderson who has shown encouraging form in recent months. Harrison worked with Scholes in United’s academy along with Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Neville brothers. He says Scholes looked world class the moment he stepped onto a pitch for the first time – and insists he was still in a different league, even in his final appearance for United. This is one for the Britons Got Talent style voting I think we will have to wait and see.

Anderson Age: 23 Described to Ferguson as potentially the best player in the world when he joined United from Porto in 2007, but the Brazilian has only shown glimpses of that kind of form since arriving. Ferguson, himself, has claimed in the past that Anderson could be the man to succeed Scholes but his lack of consistency would be a concern. Three goals in his last two games indicate that he may finally be developing a knack of finding the back of the net.

Tom Cleverley Age: 21 Will return from a seasonlong loan at Wigan this summer and is tipped to have a big future at United. More naturally a wide player than Scholes but his eye for goal is something that has encouraged Ferguson and his coaching staff. Chances of filling the role: Next season will be about establishing himself as a member of United’s firstteam squad. It’s too much to ask that he fills Scholes shoes as well.

Mario Goetze Age: 18 Club: Borussia Dortmund Value: £18m Both United and Arsenal have monitored the exciting teenager – but at only 18, it would be a big ask for him to immediately fill Scholes’ shoes at Old Trafford. Chances of signing him: Dortmund claim he is player that ‘money can’t buy’ and even if they were tempted to sell, Ferguson would be reluctant to get into a bidding war with Arsenal for someone so inexperienced.

Just who can replace Paul Scholes?

The names in the frame

Wesley Sneijder Age: 26 Club: Inter Milan Value: £30m The Dutchman would be a departure from Ferguson’s recent policy of signing emerging talent but he possesses all the tools to replace Scholes. Vision, technique and goals saw him lead Inter to the Champions League last year and Holland to the World Cup final. Chances of signing him: The outstanding candidate – but also the most expensive. Says he is happy at Inter Milan.

Who will be the next villa boss?

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is believed to be high on Aston Villa owner Randy Lerner’s list of preferred options to replace Gerard Houllier as manager, Press Association Sport understands. Villa are drawing up a short list, also likely to include Fulham’s Mark Hughes and Everton’s David Moyes, after Houllier’s nine-month reign ended because of concerns over his health. They are hoping to appoint Houllier’s successor before the end of June to give him time to assess the current squad and bring in new signings before the 201112 campaign begins. There has been intense speculation that Hughes is bound for Villa Park and he is the current favourite with the bookmakers. He signed a two-year deal last summer although he can activate a get-out clause for the final 12 months. But Ancelotti is also understood to be impressing Lerner given his outstanding track record. He led the Blues to the double in his first season at Stamford Bridge before being sacked by Chelsea last month having ended the season trophyless. Lerner would have to convince Ancelotti that Villa

match his own ambitions and can mount a serious challenge for Champions League football. Villa may also find Ancelotti’s wage demands could be a stumbling block after reportedly earning around £5million last season at Chelsea. He has been linked with a move to newly-promoted QPR should they dispense with Neil Warnock. Ultimately, Hughes may turn out to be a more realistic proposition for Villa should he decide to seek fresh pastures. He led Fulham to eighth spot in the Premier League and a Europa League spot via the Fair Play League in his first season. But Moyes, the number one choice of fans in a local newspaper poll, ex-England coach Steve McClaren, Martin Jol and current Wigan boss Roberto Martinez are also in the frame. H o u l lier did not take charge until midSeptember and was left to play catch-up in trying to make his mark on the club with the transfer window closed. The ex-Liverpool manager has left Villa after nine months in charge to allow him more time to recuperate after his heart problem.

ANDY MURRAY: I NEED TO RAISE MY GAME Andy Murray is confident he can beat Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals of the French Open on Friday, but only if he plays a lot better than he did against Juan Ignacio Chela. The Argentinian, who coincidentally was the man Tim Henman beat to reach the last four at Roland Garros in 2004, is a wily campaigner on clay but not in the same class as Murray, who eventually prevailed 7-6 (7/2) 7-5 6-2 after two hours and 53 minutes. It may have been straight sets but it was anything but straightforward as the world number four fought back from two breaks down to win the first set, saving three set points, then let slip a similar lead in the second. A crucial break at 5-5, one of 13 in the match, put him back on the right path and it was only in the third set that Murray really stamped his authority on proceedings. World number one Nadal, who is looking to equal Bjorn Borg’s tally of six Roland Garros titles, will be a significant step up, but Murray tested the Spaniard in Monte Carlo in April and he fancies his chances

of making a first final on clay. He said: “I think in the build-up to the French I was playing very well, and now I’m going to have to get that level out on Friday and sustain it for a long

more with the movement each time you play a match. “I felt it a few times. It was nothing major but in the next couple of days I need to do all the right things again. A lot of treatment, a

period to beat Rafa. “But I feel I can do it. I have to play a very consistent match and I have to be mentally strong. Tactically I’m going to have to be very good. So I can definitely win. I just need to play my best.” Positive news for the Scot was that the right ankle injury he sustained against Michael Berrer on Saturday seems to be healing and his movement was much better than it had been in his epic five-set win over Viktor Troicki in round four. He added: “It’s definitely getting better with each day. You gain confidence

lot of icing, and I’m sure it will get better.” Victories for Murray and Nadal, who looked much more like his old self in a 6-4 6-1 7-6 (7/3) win over Robin Soderling, meant the top four men’s seeds have all made the semi-finals at a grand slam for the first time since the US Open in 2008 and the first time at Roland Garros for five years. The women’s draw has been much less predictable and today’s semi-finals will pit defending champion Francesca Schiavone against home hope Marion Bartoli while Maria Sharapova takes on Australian Open finalist Li Na.

BLATTER RE-ELECTED FOR FOURTH TERM Sepp Blatter has been voted in for a fourth term as president of world football’s governing body FIFA - as the only candidate left the 75 year-old received 186 of the 203 votes cast and will now stay in office until 2015. This follows a late bid from the English and Scottish Football Associations to have the election postponed, following the ongoing corruption row that has surrounded FIFA for the past week, and resulted in Blatter’s only rival, Mohammed Bin Hammam, withdrawing from the two-man race. FA chairman David Bernstein proposed that the election be postponed so that the allegations, which involved several leading figures at FIFA, could be properly investigated. However, efforts to delay the election failed spectacularly, as the FA lost the

vote 172-17. Bernstein said: ‘I think it was worth it; we made an important point of principle. We felt a coronation wasn’t appropriate given what’s happening at FIFA’. I think there’s been some movement in terms of

greater democracy, in terms of congress being involved in things such as World Cup country selection rather than the Executive Committee, so I think there’s been some movement and we’re partly responsible for that’. Following his re-election Blatter insisted that changes would be made, to amend for the negative publicity that the organisation had generated over the past

week. Blatter said: ‘Our pyramid is intact, the base, the foundation is strong and together we have four years to continue on our path and do our job. We will put FIFA’s ship back on the right course in clear, transparent waters. We need some time to do it, but we shall do it’. ‘From the beginning I wanted this congress to know and understand we are in a situation which needs not only words but action in order to counteract all these attacks’. Blatter conceded the decision to have the bidding processes for two World Cups at the same time had been a mistake but said the move to have the 208 congress delegates vote on future World Cups, rather than the 24-man executive committee making the decision, was a step forward – giving more power to individual football associations.
