Al Qaeda 'made a dry run'; embassies bombed in Athens Speaking to the BBC on condition of anonymity, a US official has revealed that suspect packages from Yemen were intercepted in September, in what he said may have been a dry run for last week's foiled parcel bomb plot. – and last weekend's bombs to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

The shipments to Chicago apparently contained literature and other materials, but no explosives. The source said US officials suspect the idea was to test how long it would take for the packages to reach their destination. Last week, two parcel bombs containing powerful PETN explosives hidden inside printer toner cartridges were discovered on cargo planes in the UK and Dubai. They had been shipped from Yemen's capital Sanaa through UPS and another US cargo firm,

WORLD for the Pope They’ve got to be kidding... contd.,

By Kym Wickham

carrying on from my column last week about the 30-odd thousand pounds that the British Government won’t be paying me for the first five years they contracted to pay me my pension, I have been quite amazed at how many emails and phone calls we’ve received at The news agreeing with me. usually I’ll have “a wee rant” and get little feedback but it would seem that, this time, pretty much everybody in my age group that have paid into the state pension are as brassed off about it as I am and a lot hadn’t actually worked out just how much we won’t be paid. They have also agreed that we’d all be prepared to pay a certain percentage of what was reclaimed from those 5 years to a solicitor who’d be prepared to take on the case. I would suspect that if they were bi - or trilingual, they’d have a few French customers too so, as I asked last week.... Any lawyers want to do a pro-bono? You’d have a lot of clients on percentage! On another note, I absolutely love the weather at this time of year. nice and crisp and bright mornings, warm and sunny during the day then cool starry nights brilliant. So, now and again we get a bit of rain but that’s good for the garden and a bit of wind to blow the cobwebs and colds away. Other people I’ve spoken to tell me they hate high winds but, walking my dogs in my “trackie” and a T-shirt with the wind in my face... Absolutely Marvellous!

Pope Benedict's visit to Santiago de Compostela on Saturday and Barcelona on Sunday has both cities in a turmoil of preparations. In Barcelona, the Sagrada Familia chapel bears posters welcoming him and the Vatican flag is flying in many parts of the city. The City Council has given permission for the Catalan national flag to be flown along the Pope's route which has upset the smaller nationalist parties who oppose the visit. By last week, most of the hotels in both cities were booked up and owners of the apartments with balconies along the Pope’s routes in both cities were already collecting €4,000 on average to rent them out to people wanting a closer look at the illustrious visitor. Meanwhile, the authorities in Santiago de Compostela are installing big screens all over the small city of narrow streets to give the greatest possible number of people the chance to see the Pope. Both cities, and the towns along the routes between them, and their respective airports are crawling with security personnel – both Spanish and the Pope's own. The police turnout in Barcelona will be the biggest security operation ever mounted in the city. Galicia will also mount its biggest security operation ever, with more than 6,000 National Police, Guardia Civil, civil protection and local police patrolling the streets. Thousands of volunteers are also helping to organise the visits in both cities.

continued from FRONT PAGE

Opponents of the visit are already grumbling about the cost – the Barcelona authorities will fork out €2.5 million for the one-day visit but expect the people flocking to the city to see the Pope to spend nearly €30 million. Similar figures are being bandied about in Santiago de Compostela. But you can't please all of the people all of the time. Gay groups are already planning protests, if they can break through all that security. No doubt everything will be fine on the day. Crown Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia will welcome the Pope to Santiago on Saturday, as will opposition leader Mariano Rajoy, public works minister José Blanco, justice minister Francisco Camaño and deputy prime minister Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba. King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia will welcome the Pope to Barcelona on Sunday, accompanied by Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.


On Sunday, US officials said Saudi bombmaker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, said to be in his 20s, is the key suspect in the failed bomb plot. Officials in Britain later said that the crucial tip-off that led to the discovery of the bomb came from a repentant alQaeda member, Jabr al-Faifi, who handed himself in to authorities in Saudi Arabia two weeks ago. Several countries, including Germany and Holland, have joined the US and the UK in suspending all passenger and cargo flights from Yemen.

Athens and several other suspicious packages have been destroyed. A suspected bomb was destroyed at the Bulgarian embassy and another, posted to the Chilean embassy. The police said no-one was hurt in the explosions, which came a day after four parcel bombs were found in the city. A police spokesman said Tuesday's attacks appear to be a continuation of Monday's attacks, when a parcel bomb addressed to the Mexican embassy in Athens blew up at a courier office, slightly injuring an employee. Police later arrested two suspects and found two more bombs, one addressed to French President Nicolas Sarkozy and the other to the Belgian embassy. A fourth bomb was

Al Qaeda 'made a dry run'; embassies bombed in Athens found at a delivery company addressed to the Dutch embassy. Terrorism experts suspect the coordinated campaign is the work of a group called the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, which is trying to spark revolution in Greece during the current period of austerity. The parcel bombs have raised anxiety levels in the run up to this weekend's vital local elections, which are seen as a referendum on the socialist government's handling of the economic crisis. Prime minister George Papandreou has warned he may call a general election if his party is soundly defeated.

Unemployment rate falls The quarterly unemployment rate has fallen for the first time in more than three years, but still remains the highest in Europe, according to National Statistics Institute figures published last Friday.

Prime minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero told Parliament on Tuesday that the government plans to increase the number of judges, inspectors and legal secretaries by more than 2,000 in the next two years. He said in response to a question that the economic crisis had not sabotaged the government's plans, simply slowed them up. He said some steps to modernise the justice system had already been taken. Sr Zapatero also pointed out that next year's budget for the justice system was nearly 75% higher than in 2004. He said the digitisation of the system had forged ahead this year and that paper in judges' and lawyers' offices would be a thing of the past by the end of 2012.

Road deaths up again

How Spain's future Queen will look at 18 To mark the Infanta Leonor's 5th birthday on Sunday, the El Mundo newspaper produced a photo montage of how she will look when she

comes of age in 13 years’ time. Photoshop expert Jorge Salgado said he used her mother's face as a basis as well as input from Professor Narayanan

A total of 26 people died in 24 accidents between 3 pm last Friday, when the long Halloween weekend started officially and 8 pm Monday – 13 more than for the same weekend last year.

One death to cover up another

e danger of 'invisible' cyclists More and people are using bicycles to get around on in cities and towns and the number injured in clashes with cars is also rising. Deaths in car accidents on Spain's roads have dropped by 50% in the past seven years and while only 13 cyclists lost their lives on the roads last year – two less than in 2003 but two more than in 2008 – the number of injured – 2,158 – was 15% higher than in 2008 and 60% higher than in 2003.

However, another 30 lost their lives and 221 were seriously injured while cycling in the towns and cities. Now the Traffic Authority is planning a campaign – called Hazte ver y mejore tu seguridad (Make yourself seen and improve your safety) – to

make cyclists aware that it is obligatory to have headlights on their bikes and use reflectors when riding at night. A spokesman said some 2.5 million people ride bicycles every day and the authority is asking town councils throughout the country to collaborate in the campaign.

Money sniffing dogs join police The National Police have three new members – called Roco, Vero and Liri – who have been trained to sniff out the caches of money, in notes not coins, hidden by drug traffickers. They are part of an innovative project in Europe, known

Legal Tender Notes, to track down the black money from drug trafficking, corruption or organised crime. The three dogs were instrumental in dismantling a drug

Just two days after Moroccan police killed a 14-year-old boy at a camp in the Western Sahara, groups of Moroccans began to cause disturbances along the Melilla border during which the Guardia Civil allegedly killed a 16-yearold youth, according to the Moroccan press. The Interior Ministry and the premier of Melilla immediately denied the reports, pointing out that no-one had witnessed the “killing” – something difficult to miss during a riot – and nobody had come forward to claim the “body”.

Government sources said it was a smokescreen to attract attention away from the biggest protest the Moroccan government has had to deal with in the Western Sahara, which has been claiming independence ever since it was taken over by Morocco from Spain in 1975.

The deaths brought the total for October to 170, 21 more than the same month last year. Road deaths have now seen an increase for two months running but the Traffic Authority insists that it is not the start of a trend. So far this year there have been 1,448 road deaths, 162 less than the same period last year, continuing the steady drop in road deaths since 2000.

Gay groups attack Rajoy Commenting on an interview with Mariano Rajoy in the El País daily newspaper, gay leaders said they were not surprised that he has promised to overturn the gay marriage legislation if he wins the next election.

More Catholics than trade unionists

Spain dominates EU jobless list

Responding to claims from groups against the Pope's upcoming visit that Spain is no longer a Catholic country, the La Razon daily pointed out on Sunday that 14% of the country's population of more than 46 million – that is, 6.5 million – go to church on Sunday. Just over 42 million have been baptised in the church and nearly 34 million say they are Catholics. La Razon points out that just over three million people belong to a trade union, 1.2 million are members of political parties and just over two million go to the cinema every week. And despite being football fanatics, less than 800,000 people go to First or Second Division matches every week. The paper also notes that the Catholic Church saves the government more than €30,000 million a year. It has more than 5,000 schools,

attended by over a million children, which saves the State €16,000 million. Its 107 hospitals, more than 1,000 out-patient centres and dispensaries, and centres for old people, the sick and disabled with 51,132 beds, save the State another €14,000 million. Its two charities, Cáritas y Manos Unidas, which has just won the Prince of Asturias Concord Award, looked after the daily needs and paid the bills for more than 800,000 jobless people last year, the majority of them aged between 20 and 40. This cost the Church an estimated €262 million, a figure that would be much

higher if the 60,000 people who work with Cáritas were not volunteers. The newspaper also mentions the 68 church centres for domestic violence victims and prostitutes which helped 6,114 women last year, and its 433 orphanages and kindergartens which looked after 64,000 children during the same period.


Six of the ten EU regions with the highest unemployment figures are Spanish, the other four being French overseas possessions. France's Reunion topped the list with with a jobless rate of 27.1%, followed by the Canary Islands (26.2%), Andalucía (25.4%), Melilla (24,2%) and France's Guadalupe (23.4%) and Martinique (21.8%). The Valencia Community came seventh (21.2%), followed by Murcia and Extremadura, with French Guayana at the bottom (20.2%). The Spanish regions with the lowest jobless rates are Navarra (10.9%), the Basque Country (11.,0%) and Cantabria (12.0%), all above the European average of 8.9%. The figures are from Eurostat.

Trial by jury turns 15 Contrary to the popular perception of trials by jury, the system has yielded mixed results since being adopted in Spain in November 1995. Judges find juries too easily swayed by preconceptions, reaching guilty verdicts in nine out of ten cases, despite a lack of hard proof of guilt. Juries are also costly and tend to drag out the hearing of a case. So lawyers opt not to have them whenever possible, resulting in a drop from 433 in 2000 to 281 last year. Madrid

Parliament's Equality Commission has approved a Socialist Party proposal to eliminate “sexist games” and “stereotypes” in school playgrounds and promote games that do not separate the sexes. The government will now have to decide if the proposal should be put before Parliament.

the body of assassinated Indian PM Indira Gandhi was cremated

Haiti cholera resembles South Asian strain Haiti's health minister has said the outbreak of cholera which has killed more than 330 people on the island was probably brought in from outside. He was speaking after the US Centre for Disease Control found that the strain most closely resembles a South Asian strain, and the Haitian cholera patients had all been infected with the same strain. The UN is investigating allegations

that excrement from Nepalese peacekeepers caused the epidemic. The Nepalese camp had become the object of local suspicion partly because cholera is very rare in Haiti but endemic in Nepal. The UN had said last week that

tests taken from the peacekeepers' camp and adjacent waters were found to be negative but, following the US agency's announcement, a spokesman said the agency was looking into the matter. The US federal health agency said cholera

does not normally spread widely within a country if drinking water and sewage treatment are adequate. Poor sanitary conditions make the camps and slums where many are living after the country's January

earthquake vulnerable to cholera, which is caused by bacteria transmitted through contaminated water or food. Some 1.3 million survivors of the devastating quake are living in tented camps in

and around the capital. Health experts said they expect the outbreak will soon lessen but the disease will eventually join malaria and tuberculosis in becoming endemic in Haiti.

Bullfighting under attack in France

Japan recalls Moscow envoy Tokyo is to temporarily recall its ambassador to Moscow amid renewed tensions over the Kuril Islands which are claimed by both Japan and Russia. Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara said he wanted more details from the ambassador about a visit to one of the disputed islands by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev which he called "very regrettable". On Monday, Japan summoned Russia's ambassador in Tokyo to express displeasure at Mr Medvedev's visit to one of the four Kuril Islands. Moscow called Japan's reaction to the visit

"unacceptable". Russia took control of the islands at the end of World War II; before then, about 17,000 Japanese residents lived in the Kurils. On Monday, Mr Medvedev met local residents in Kunashir, the second-largest of the four islands, and pledged more investment for the region. He is the first Russian leader to set foot on the islands. The dispute has strained relations between Tokyo and Moscow ever since World War II,

preventing the signing of a formal peace treaty. The islands have rich fishing grounds, mineral deposits and possibly oil and gas reserves. Japan's chief spokesperson has said a meeting between Mr Medvedev and Japan's Prime Minister Mr Kan on the sidelines of the AsiaPacific Economic Co-operation summit to be held in Japan on November 13th–14th would go ahead.

Berlusconi in another girl scandal Former Milan police chief Vincenzo Indolfi was questioned on Monday by the prominent investigator Ilda Boccassini, amid allegations of abuse of power by Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi. The allegations centre around a teenage girl, known as Ruby. Mr Berlusconi has denied any improper conduct with the girl. Mr Indolfi, who was commander at the Milan police station at the time Ruby was taken in, has insisted that his station "followed procedures" when, having arrested Ruby on suspicion of stealing

â‚Ź3,000, it released her after a call from the prime minister's office. On her arrest, Ruby, a 17year-old Moroccan-Sicilian runaway, had allegedly claimed to know Mr Berlusconi who, she said, had taken her under his wing and given her a â‚Ź7,000 gift. Mr Berlusconi has admitted sending an aide to take custody of Ruby from the Milan police station. Opposition politicians and Catholic newspapers have deplored the latest incident and the Speaker of parliament, Gianfranco Fini, said Mr Berlusconi "should go" if the claims of direct intervention into police matters were true.

Bullfighting has a loyal following in parts of southern France but since the Catalans voted to ban it from 2012, French animal welfare groups have stepped up their campaign to get it outlawed in France. Although bullfighting originated across the border in Spain, it took root in France a century and a half ago, partly because of an influx of Spanish immigrants. In theory, bullfighting is already banned in most of France, but is allowed in areas where it's a local tradition. There are considerable economic interests in bullfighting in the south. About 100 bullfighting contests are staged each year, with around a thousand bulls dying in the ring. Now some towns in the south are planning to stage more bullfights because they're hoping to attract fans from Catalonia just across the Pyrenees. But even in the south, growing numbers of people are now speaking out against what they see as a gruesome hangover from an earlier era, when animal welfare seemed less important.

Tail grab saves woman from shark

Dilma Rousseff, the woman elected to be Brazil's first female president has promised to make gender equality a priority and also promised to fight poverty and maintain continuity with her highly popular predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. She won Sunday's presidential run-off election with 56% of the vote to rival Jose Serra's 44%. Ms Rousseff takes office on 1st January next year when President Lula steps down after completing the constitutional limit of two consecutive terms. In her victory speech in the capital, Brasilia, Ms Rousseff said her election as the country's first female leader was a sign of the democratic progress Brazil had made: "So I am here stating my first postelection commitment: to honour Brazilian women so that this fact – unprecedented until now – becomes something normal and can be repeated and expanded in companies, public institutions, and organisations that are

Massive national census to start More than six million workers have been hired for the mammoth undertaking of carrying out the first national census for 10 years in the world's most populous country. Their biggest challenge will be documenting migrant workers, who often have no fixed address and are believed to number more than 200 million in an estimated population of more than 1.3 billion. The census will also reveal how many children there are in China, many of whom are not registered because of the one-child policy. representative of our entire society." Ms Rousseff, a former Marxist rebel who was imprisoned for three years in the early 1970s for resisting military rule, promised to protect freedom of expression and worship, and to honour the constitution. She said another priority would be to lift 20 million Brazilians out of poverty.

Ms Rousseff, 62, has never before held elected office. She trained as an economist and worked her way up through local and state governments. She was President Lula's energy minister from 20032005, before becoming his chief of staff. Ms Rousseff is expected to emphasise government

Corporal S is the first to be jailed for such an offence. The photos were found on his mobile phone after he was arrested on suspicion of taking drugs. Other pictures found on his phone showed two other soldiers in similar poses, who are also now on trial. In August, photos of a former Israeli soldier posted on the social networking site Facebook , showing her posing next to blindfolded Palestinian prisoners, sparked an outcry. And last month, a YouTube video showing a

soldier belly-dancing next to a blindfolded female detainee wearing a headscarf also caused outrage. Palestinian and human rights groups say the images are humiliating and indicative of the attitude of Israeli soldiers towards Palestinian prisoners. The Israeli military has said such incidents are isolated cases that do not represent the the army as a whole.

She will also oversee a huge expansion of Brazil's oil industry, following the discovery of major offshore fields that should make Brazil one of the world's top ten oil exporters.

Houses destroyed by gas Not-so NICE lose powers A house in Merlin Road, Irlam near Manchester was flattened while its neighbouring properties were badly damaged by a gas explosion at around 9am on Tuesday morning. The fire service were called out to attend at 9:07am, following reports of people being trapped under the rubble. Gas works had recently been carried out by a housing trust at one of the homes destroyed and a 76year-old woman is in hospital with lifethreatening injuries along with thirteen others, eight adults and five children, hurt in the blast. Fire engines and a rescue vehicle were deployed to the scene which firefighters described as utter chaos with people running

NICE, the NHS department that has up until now had the power of whether to give patients expensive but life-giving drugs or not, is to have that power taken away from them, Health Ministers announced on Monday.

UK / France treaty signed A new military treaty between the UK and France was signed in London yesterday (Tuesday) by UK Prime Minister David Cameron and French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. The treaty means that Britain and France will be able to deploy military personnel as well as aircraft carriers and have joint control of nuclear facilities. The UK and France are the only European countries to have nuclear capabilities and France has only recently rejoined NATO. The two countries will take part in joint training exercises. However, it has been made clear that the overall commands will ultimately remain separate.

The treaty also means that a British or French aircraft carrier will always be on hand and it has been reported that, in recent years, the respective carriers have spent more time in dry dock than on the seas. The UK Chief of Defence Staff, Sir David Richards welcomed the move but other Defence Staff and Military advisers are wary about the two countries being able to agree whether or not to deploy if another situation like Iraq comes up. It has also been said that, if the economic climate wasn’t as bad as it is, the treaty would probably never have been signed.

Aaachoo no more Researchers at Cambridge University may have solved the mystery of how to cure the common cold. The virus has to enter the body and attach itself to normal cells and mutate.

Prisoners to get vote For the first time in over one hundred and fourty years, some 70,000 inmates of UK prisons will be allowed to vote in elections.

Now, however, the Uk are being threatened with fines costing UK tax payers millions of pounds if they do not comply.


current ban on drugs on the NHS costing more than £30,000 a year will be scrapped from 2014. The decision comes in the wake of an ongoing campaign by patients and some clinicians who believe their patients could have been saved by the banned drugs. Experts have said that the UK’s appalling record of cancer survival within the EU can be blamed in large

part on the “penny pinching” NICE departments’ refusal to allow drugs to NHS patients that are readily available in other countries within Europe. The decision brings hope to thousands of sufferers who thought they would have to sell everything they own just to get a drug to save their lives, as some have had to in the past, leaving themselves destitute.

RBL meet Hitler Small Formerly unseen footage of a meeting between five British Legion officials and Hitler was found at the bottom of a cupboard recently when the RBL London Headquarters moved their offices. The British delegation were on a peace-finding mission in Germany in 1935 when they came face to face with Hitler at his Chancellery and at the end of their trip were given a photo album emblazoned with a swastika as a memento of their journey.

During the trip they had supper with Himmler – head of the SS – after having been taken on a tour of Dachau, met reconstructive surgeon Karl Gebhardt, who later joined the SS and experimented on inmates at Auschwitz, and are seen in the film shaking hand with Hitler's deputy Rudolph Hess.

e witching hour for the Met. The Metropolitain Police authorities have penned a 300-page guide for police offices on how to deal with members of the pagan community. Advice ranges from not to touch a witch’s Book of Shadows when arresting her (or him) to what to do when confronted by followers of shamanism, druidry or Zoroastrianism and guidance is given on how to arrrest people who are “naked, blindfolded and with their hands tied behind their backs” during ceremonies. The book is available online to all serving officers. It tells them to be particularly alert during the days of Beltane, held on April 30th and May 1st, when pagan and wicca worshippers celebrate a fire festival and carry daggers, or athames, as part of their “uniform”. The book also has a glossary of terms – such as the greeting “Merry Meet” to say hello and an explanation of a “Wickening”, a child naming ceremony, and tells officers that many, though not all, pagans are vegetarians. There is also a glossary of current teenage slang such as “talk to the hand as the face is in Spain” which simply means “I’m not listening to you”. The book is not compulsory reading for officers but a spokesman said that it is on the web for any that wish to consult it. And we thought Halloween was over!

He said: “We shall put up the No Smoking signs but we aren't going to tell our clients not to smoke”. The stricter law bans smoking in all enclosed public spaces. Currently, bars and restaurants smaller than

Many wife beaters walk free The Junta's anti-domestic violence delegate in Malaga, Flor de Torres, has said that every year almost 700 men accused of gender violence in Malaga walk free because their partners will not declare against them in court. The reason is that a 19th century law, the Law of Criminal Prosecution

(LECrim) exempts a woman from giving testimony against her husband or partner. Without that testimony, Sra Torres said, a judge can do nothing but let the aggressor go. She said many women avail themselves of the exemption because they are easily influenced or

intimidated by their partners because of a psychological inclination to accept gender violence as “normal”. Last year, two Spanish women and two foreign women were killed by their partners in Malaga, and there have been three victims so far this year.

More English speakers needed With more and more English-speaking people arriving in Malaga on cruise ships or to visit the Picasso Museum, only one in four local people can give them directions in English, according to the National Institute of statistics. Most of the more than 300,000 currently learning English in schools,

universities, language academies or special courses for the unemployed are able to string a few words together but not carry out a conversation. Experts blame this on the fact that most of the English teachers are in fact Spanish and that most of the learning is done by rote. The president of Malaga's

Hoteliers Association said many waiters in bars and restaurants were fairly fluent in English but this was not the case in shops. He said something had to be done, and urgently, to raise the level of proficiency in English in a province which has such a large number of English speaking people who live here permanently or spend their holidays here.

Horse shows to attract overnight stays

Civil War victims apply for indemnity Sixteen women have so far responded to the Junta de Andalucia’s offer of an indemnity of €1,800 for the humiliation suffered at the hands of the dictatorship during and after the Civil War. When Franco’s victorious troops arrived in towns previously held by the Republicans, the wives, mothers and daughters were often singled out for public humiliation, which usually consisted of having their heads shaved and being paraded through the streets and forced to swallow huge doses of castor oil. One of the victims was Luisa Rodriguez Garcia, now 102, who had no known political affiliation

when Franco’s troops arrived in her small village of Montellano, Sevilla province. But she became one of the “pelonas” (shaved heads) for having been pregnant and unmarried. She escaped from the town with her mother when the “moros” (Franco’s Moroccan troops) arrived, and fled across country towards Malaga, still in the hands of the Republicans. However, her baby arrived prematurely and only

survived a few days. She and her mother returned to their village where she was employed as a wet nurse for the wife of one of the military officers left in charge. At the end of the war, she was arrested but was saved from execution by the officer who testified in her favour. They shaved her head instead. The Junta is currently studying the evidence presented by the 16 women to make sure their claims are genuine.

The first evening performance by Cordoba’s Caballerizas Reales (Royal Stables) will take place on November 5th in the stables’ main patio, which can accommodate an audience of 500 people. The show, called “Pasion y duende del caballo andaluz” (Passion and spirit of the Andalucian horse), now joins the night openings of the Mezquita as part of a drive – backed by local hotels, restaurants and the city council – to persuade tourists to spend the night in the city after doing the traditional daytime tours. The performances will take place on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, starting at 9pm and there will be earlier performances on Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon. Admission costs €15 for adults, €10 for children.

Man gets offer for kidney An unemployed 43-yearold Malaga man reached the end of his tether after sleeping at the houses of friends and relatives for four months and decided to post an offer of one of his kidneys on the internet. J.L.D., who had just finished a jail term for threatening his ex-wife, had asked for €60,000 but after a local paper published his story he received offers of up to €100,000. It will be difficult for him to do a deal because transplants are strictly regulated in Spain

and are only carried out in state hospitals. The fact that all the calls have come from people unwilling to give personal details, which means they could belong to international organisations trafficking in human organs, doesn’t put him off. He hopes to carry out the transaction before the end of the year, when a law will come into force making it illegal to sell organs on the internet in Spain.

Socialist Party's No 2 man resigns Rafael Velasco resigned his seat in the Andalucian Parliament last week and also the deputy general secretaryship of the Socialist Party in Andalucia after it became known that his wife had received more than €700,000 in subsidies for her business. Sr Velasco,

Iberian lynx may move to UK


Poaching, habitat loss, road accidents and disease outbreaks in the cat's main food source – wild rabbits – all helped to push it to the brink of extinction. So, in desperation, the conservationists decided to breed the cat in captivity at the main centres in Coto Donana, Sierra Morena and La Olivilla in Jaen, where there are currently 40 lynx of varying ages. The next

step is to release them back into the wild, which could start next year. However, the experts say that habitat loss, poachers and careless drivers will soon be less dangerous for the lynx than climate change, which some species will not be able to adapt to or migrate to more suitable homes because of geographical barriers. When that happens, the conservationists will have to literally pack up whole populations of species to shift them elsewhere in what is called assisted migration (or assisted colonisation).

Critics say that intentionally creating invasive and therefore potentially problematic species goes against just about every conservation convention. But the idea is gaining momentum. One scientist said that if thousands, even hundred of thousands of species are going to die out because of climate change, we have to ask ourselves if there is anywhere else on Earth where they could survive in the future. There have been few examples of assisted migration so far, but a recent study revealed that the small skipper and marbled

Junta to tax bags

One way to collect debt The owner of the Cordobabased Vicecor Control company chained himself to the doors of Jaen City Council one day last week and swore to do the same every day until he collects the €66,000 he is owed for services rendered. Antonio Villen Molina has only received half of the debt that a judge ordered the council to pay him, and then only because he stood outside the town hall with a poster

demanding payment. He told reporters that if he hadn’t done that he “wouldn’t have received a cent”. “What else can I do now that I have lost practically everything,” he said. “The banks are going to embargo me, I can’t pay social security for my 45 employees and I’m going to have to let them go thanks to the Jaen town council.”

As of 1st January 2011, the Junta de Andalucia will collect a 5-cent tax on plastic shopping bags, “to contribute to the protection of the environment by decreasing their use and the pollution they cause”. The tax will also bring in an estimated €45 million in revenue next year. It will be collected from the supermarket chains which have their own bags and the manufacturers of bags for other commercial enterprises, which will pass on the tax to their customers. The tax will be raised to 10 cents in 2012.

Guardia killed in hit and run

Breeding centres for the world’s rarest cat in Andalucia are proving so successful that the people who run the Lynx Life project, which has been relocating lynx around the region to establish new populations, are now being forced by climate change to look much further ahead. The lynx was once relatively common throughout the Iberian peninsula, but its numbers have dropped drastically in the past 50 years, from an estimated 3,000 to approximately 150 in 2005.


white butterflies did well when moved further north in the UK. For now, efforts to save the Iberian lynx will remain focused in its home domain. Since 2005, numbers of wild lynx have steadily grown to around 300 and conservationists now plan to create three more populations in Portugal and Spain, at which point the cat would no longer be classed as critically endangered. But if this beautiful cat has to be moved further north to escape climate change, it may become a common sight for future generations of Britons.

A Guardia Civil was killed in a hit-and-run incident on the A-92 in Granada province on Sunday when the motorist he was waving down ran into him and sped off. A Guardia source said it appeared not to have been an accident as witnesses said the driver clearly saw the signal to pull over. The car was later found near the hospital in Baza and contained traces of hashish. At press time, the driver had not been apprehended.


Crisis keeps hunters at home Local hunting organisations report that the economic crisis has forced almost 5,000 to give up their favourite pastime, down from 35,000 last year. And those who are continuing hunt on fewer weekends. At a licensed coto (private hunting preserve), a day’s hunting costs between €200 and €300 per small game hunter per day. Big game hunts cost from €3,000 to €6,000. Given the drop in demand, only about 130 coto owners out of 430 licensed ones are organising hunts this season. MALAGA

One 73year-old retired businessman said it was much more satisfying to pass on his skills to young people than fritter away his time playing chess at his local seniors’ centre.

he Socialist Party no doubt will soon be trotting out an image that didn't do them any good way back in 1996, when they portrayed José Maria Aznar as a doberman. The image was supposed to put the fear of God into the voters but it had the opposite effect – Aznar went on to win the 1996 election, without an outright majority, and the 2000 election, when he got a very comfortable majority. You would think they'd have learned their lesson – the doberman didn't frighten the voters when the Socialist government of Felipe Gonzalez had managed to chalk up a record unemployment rate, on top of putting the government deeply in debt, and I doubt that all the insults they're already trotting out now will convince people that voting for the Partido Popular will be the equivalent of resurrecting Franco. What the Socialists can't understand is that there are four and a half million unemployed in Spain, the vast majority of whom are really suffering. And they will continue to suffer until they can find jobs.

ou should also watch your back, Mr Zapatero. Methinks yon Rubalcaba has a lean and hungry look – and you know what happened to Caesar! In fact, the PM seems quite happy to sit back and let “the new strong man” – as many in the press have dubbed the Deputy PM-cum-Interior Minster – take charge of the government. And Rubalcaba needs watching. He's slick and comes across as a man who knows what he's talking about and isn't about to let the ETA terrorists frighten him into submission. In fact, his stand against ETA is the most admirable thing about him. Another plus is that he doesn't smirk the minute he gets behind a microphone – like public works minister José Blanco and that insufferable Leire Pajin do. What made Zapatero promote her from party organisational secretary to health minister, we'll never know. Apparently she's the government's connection to younger voters.

he Partido Popular leader admitted to El Pais in a freewheeling interview that he doesn’t even have a hidden proposal he would unveil if he ever gets to Moncloa. That’s surprising because all savvy politicians have an ace up their sleeve that they usually pull when they are firmly embedded in the public seat they sought. Look at David Cameron. Either Rajoy is not coming clean or he just really doesn’t have any good ideas.



lmost every family in Spain has an unemployed member while in some families no-one has a job. Many people have already lost their homes and hundreds of thousands more live with the spectre of the removal van taking away all their memories and precious belongings any day now. All the insults in the world won't lay the ghost of poverty – a poverty that is even more disgusting coming so hard on the heels of the most prosperous period that most Spaniards have ever lived through.


Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba


ubalcaba is now being tipped as Zapatero's heir but the general election is too far down the line to worry about. The strategy now seems to be to tame ETA, preferably before next year's regional and local elections but definitely before the 2012 general election. So once again Zapatero is putting all his eggs into the ETA basket and we know what happened last time. On December 29, 2006, he told reporters that the peace process he had initiated with ETA a few months earlier “will look even better this time next year”. The next day, an ETA car bomb blew up the Terminal 4 car park at Madrid's Barajas airport, killing two immigrants from Ecuador who had preferred to wait in their cars rather than run the risk of running into police asking for papers, which neither of them possessed. And while ETA sympathisers in the Basque Country are doing their utmost to convince ETA to lay down its arms – and make the government believe they will actually do so – the police are warning that ETA is still collecting its “revolutionary tax” – read protection money – from Basque businessmen and planning more bomb attacks. It's the same old story and will end the way it did last time around.


dmittedly, many ETA members both inside and out of jail are talking about giving up violence and but there's a hard core that thinks violence is the only way to achieve Basque independence. You don't need many people or a lot of explosives to make bombs that can kill.

nfortunately – or fortunately, whichever way we want to look at it – Rajoy offered not one innovative approach, other than criticise what the Socialists have accomplished, to get this slothful economy on the straight ahead. The PP leader’s one-on-one with El País on Sunday disclosed no new revelations, but he was quick to praise David Cameron’s deep slashes in the UK, saying that they could probably work here under the right circumstances. In other words, cut social spending to almost nil, forget about the people who really need government assistance during this dastardly time. Then on Monday, he ventured further, saying he would like to privatise social and health services. Rajoy has been opposition leader since 2004 and Cameron just came on board in May as Britain’s conservative prime minister. It has taken the PP leader three years – the same time period of this financial crisis – before he was able to offer a quick peek at some of the ingredients he believes his party should take a look at. It took Cameron at least the five months he has been in office to come up with his own shock therapy that Rajoy now wants to now plagiarise for import.

seemed that everything was sure to tank several months back.


ut actually, Rajoy cannot offer much of a different recipe than what the Socialists have presented. After three years of economic turmoil, there’s a shining glimmer, small as it may be. The latest unemployment figures released last week for the third quarter showed a slight drop in the number of people who are without work. Spain’s jobless rate is now at 19.79 percent – less than that scouring 20.9-percent figure clinging on the country for some months. More than 70,000 found jobs during the period but that is still no good news to the 4.5 million people who are still without work. The IMF has revised its forecast for Spain, saying that its economy, fragile as it is, would grow faster than growth was expected in France and Germany by 2013 – if the austerity measures and reforms continue on their due course. Speaking from Brussels, Zapatero wasn’t doing any high-fives over the latest unemployment figures; he was very cautious and asked for “prudence” as he should have. There’s still a lot to be done.

Mariano Rajoy


alling back on the “Tory” model, Rajoy said that Spain needs to take a radical course like the one Cameron is offering – albeit without the 500,000 layoffs in the public sector. “I think the first thing to do is to develop an economic policy that creates wealth and generates revenues, he told El Pais Editor-in-Chief Javier Moreno. “I think that in Spain, for many years, we have been adopting isolated measures that often contradicted previous ones; often there was a certain sense of improvisation with regard to decisionmaking,” Sr. Rajoy forgets that as the main opposition leader he has been part of that decision-making process and, as to those “improvisations”, he must be held accountable because the PP never has come up, until now, with any backup proposals, not even when it


ut Rajoy goes further. He insists on changing the current abortion law, which allows 16-year-old girls to obtain the procedure without their parents consent, and on overturning gay marriage, which was approved in 2005. Even though the PP has a challenge on same sex marriages before the Constitutional Court, Rajoy said that he won’t accept a favourable ruling and would change the law. “I will listen to the Constitutional Court and the people, but I do not like the term marriage, and I think it is unconstitutional,” he said.


t is impossible not to read all that has been printed since Sunday and not reach the conclusion that the PP leader has shot himself in his own foot.

Heather Best A friend of mine cannot have anything containing gluten and we have found it terribly difficult to make just a simple loaf of bread to any kind of acceptable standard. I know that you try and do all sorts of different things in your wonderful Kym’s Kitchen and, as I have found since looking into the whole Gluten Free thing that there seems to be quite a lot of people here in the same boat, thought you might like a few tips and a recipe that we’ve found. I have found this recipe for the flour mix that should be quite easy to do plus a few tips on how to make sure you have the best chance of making a good loaf. There is a flour mill in Coin that supplies all manner of flours, including gluten free. A friend of mine is wheat intolerant and used to buy the flour on the coast at four times the price that he sells it for up here – and she reckons it's better flour as well! Gluten-free bread, made without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, is challenging. Gluten-free cooks have to use a blend of gluten-free flours that require special coaxing to create tasty, moist and

by email thank you very much for including it in ‘The News’. The performance of ‘Don Giovanni’ was Austrian, performed in Salzburg and the voices were all marvellous as was the acting, making this a really

magnificent production. Next month on Tuesday November 16th ‘Madame Butterfly’ will be screened at 8pm. Tickets cost €12.00 and include a glass of Cava during the interval!

Torreblanca "normal" looking bread. Here are some easy tips to help you bake better glutenfree bread. Here's How: Work with room temperature ingredients. Yeast loves a warm environment and bread will rise more quickly and completely when the ingredients are at room temperature rather than cold. Gluten-free flours are often stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Using chilled ingredients will significantly slow the yeast`s ability to leaven bread. A convenient way to bring chilled flours to room temperature is to measure flour(s) for your recipe and place in a bowl on the counter the night before baking. For perishable ingredients, like eggs and milk, set on the counter for about 2 hours before preparing your recipe. Use gluten-free flour blends that are made with high protein flour. Just like breads made with wheat, high protein content in flour(s) add structure and flavor to bread. Sorghum, millet, amaranth, millet, teff, gluten-free oatmeal and buckwheat all contain more protein than rice flour. Look for gluten-free bread

recipes that contain dry milk powder (not appropriate for dairy free diets). Dry milk powder, buttermilk powder and/or dry whey powder (available at health food stores) add protein, texture, volume, flavour and nutritional value to gluten-free bread recipes. Look for bread recipes that call for eggs. Eggs are natural leaveners (help boost the rise and volume of bread.) Eggs also add moisture, flavour and protein to gluten-free bread recipes. Substitute carbonated water or gluten-free beer for water in gluten-free bread recipes. Carbonated liquids contain carbon dioxide bubbles that promote volume in bread loaves. Gluten-free beer has the added benefit of adding flavour to bread recipes. Hope this helps some of your readers! Editor says: Thanks for this. I know a few people myself who are gluten free and it’s always terribly difficult to end up with something edible unless you happen on a good recipe, so we’ll be running yours for the flour mix on Kym’s Kitchen this week so that people will have the mix at hand for all the recipes.

THE SUN One of the main reasons we have all come to Spain is of course the sunshine, but what do you really know about the Sun? Our Sun is a star, not very big, not very bright, a middle aged yellow coloured star. It is on average 93 million miles away. The light from the Sun takes about 7 ½ minutes to reach us. It is a lonely star; its nearest neighbour is over 4 light years away. It was born about 4.5 Billion years ago from a swirling cloud of dust and gases, mainly hydrogen. It is the largest object in the solar system and contains approximately 98% of the total solar system mass. One hundred and nine Earths would be required to fit across the Sun's disk, and inside it could hold over 1.3 million Earths. It may seem big to us but on the scale of things it’s a pretty insignificant star. The Surface of the Sun is called the photosphere and has a temperature of 6,000°C (11,000°F). This layer has a mottled appearance due to the turbulent eruptions of energy at the surface. Its surface is not solid but is an unimaginable sea of energy and magnetism, writhing with currents of pure energy being brought up from the inside. It is constantly changing. The Sun is not burning; it is not ‘on fire’. What makes it hot is a chemical reaction that happens deep inside it when hydrogen is converted into helium during nuclear fusion, like a million atom bombs going off every second. This atomic change releases masses of energy in the form of heat and light. Some Sun Statistics:

Caroline Long I was interested in the comments made last week in Wickham’s World on page 2. I have also been wondering how on earth the British Government have been able to get away with “stealing” our money for five years. However, up until reading the column last week, I hadn’t realised quite how

by email much I won’t be getting. Of course, I also read later in the paper that when (and if at this rate) we do get the money it will be at a much higher rate. Of course it will be, they’ll only be giving us back what they nicked in the first place! I for one would be happy to pay a lawyer a percentage of

what he/she recovered from the five to six years they’ve taken from us – could make some lawyer very rich I would think! Editor says: Many more letters on this subject next week.

Mass (kg) 1.989e+30 Mass (Earth = 1) 332,830 Equatorial radius (km) 695,000 Equatorial radius (Earth = 1) 108.97 Mean density (gm/cm^3) 1.410 Rotational period (days) 25-36* Escape velocity (km/sec) 618.02 Luminosity (ergs/sec) 3.827e33 Magnitude (Vo) -26.8 Mean surface temperature 6,000°C Age (billion years) 4.5

The Sun rotates about its axis but it does so at different speeds. At the equator it rotates in 25 days but at the poles it rotates in about 36 days. Dark areas called sunspots can be seen floating on the surface of the Sun. These are caused by areas of intense magnetic disturbance upsetting the delivery of energy to the surface. Massive loops of energy spewing out from the Sun millions of miles into space, called solar flares can have devastating effects on Earth. Electronic equipment and electrical power lines have been damaged in the past during an intense storm. At the very least they cause the Aurora or Northern lights.These multi-coloured ribbons of light can be seen almost every night in the far north and south poles of the Earth. They are caused by those solar flares being drawn to the Earth’s magnetic poles, a bit like iron fillings on a magnet. The Sun will die one day and it’s an event you wouldn’t want to see. Luckily for us it won’t happen for another 5 billion years. But eventually the Sun will use up all its supply of hydrogen. It will begin to swell up, growing bigger and bigger until it engulfs the inner planets, Mercury and Venus before swallowing up the Earth. It is not big enough to explode into a supernova; instead it will deflate like a balloon leaving a dark cloud of debris hanging in space. Alien astronomers will call it a planetary nebula.

Community Long leggedy beasties alive and well in Coin As Halloween approached it was looking doubtful whether the longest leggediest beasty in the world was going to appear at the party to end them all last Friday. Could a basque be found? Would there be any high-heeled shoes on the planet big enough? Well, the answer was a resounding yes and no. As JK’s went into full Halloween swing, owner Duncan (pictured left with Steve the cook in his somewhat bloodied Tshirt) appeared wearing a French Maid’s outfit complete with fishnets and full make-up and what a sight it was! The only failure was the shoes. The girls hunted

high and low but no size 14 stilletos could be found. Not to be deterred however, the only way to add height to Duncan’s already 6 feet 5 inches was to strap a couple of beer crates to his feet to take him way over seven feet. Huge thanks go to Precious Moments, Fuengirola for their swift help with the costume. The evening was a brilliant success and Duncan would like to say a huge “Thank You” to all who attended the party in some fantastic Halloween dress and to all his staff for their continuing hard work and the effort everybody made to make the night a howling success.

Puppy poops If you find an accident, clean it up, and consider adjusting your puppy' s schedule to prevent accident. another Punishing your puppy only teaches him to be wary of you. If you catch him in the act and punish or correct him, he will learn to eliminate when you aren't looking, which will defeat your training programme. If you should see your puppy circling as if he has to go, gently remind him to "go outside" and

help him get to his spot where he can earn praise and a reward. Accidents happen most frequently in the morning or evening when the puppy is out playing with the family. It is easy to become so involved in an activity that you forget that the puppy hasn't been outside in an hour. If this is the case, find a way to remind yourself, such as setting a kitchen timer or alarm clock.

FOCUS ON ADANA ANIMAL CHARITY ADANA is a small charity which has been rescuing, re-homing and caring for abandoned dogs in the Estepona area since 1989. Following a series of break-ins at their kennels, thieves stole their office computer which is vital for logging new arrivals and keeping track of vaccinations and medical treatment the dogs receive. The charity were devastated as they did not have the funds to replace this important machine, so put out a plea to the local business community and their supporters to lend a helping hand. A local property management and rental

firm,HomeCareontheWeb, were able to provide them with a replacement computer installed with all the programs ADANA needed, so it could be used immediately by the charity. They have also offered to help the charity further by including their contact details on their website, raising money at their offices, and distributing information to their clients. Tony Sidebottom commented “We were delighted to be able to help ADANA to replace their computer. We actually got our rescue dog, Charlie, from the charity five years ago, and so it was great to be able

to give something back for how well they looked after him in the months he was there, as well as for all the other dogs in their care. We shall try to help the charity as much as we can in the future and would like to urge other businesses to do the same. ADANA desperately need donations and also skilled individuals who can give their time and expertise to help the overworked committee members.” ADANA are currently caring for over 150 dogs at their headquarters in Los Pedregales Park, near Estepona, and have seen a steadily increasing stream of unwanted

animals left at their door since the economy took a downturn. This new influx of animals is pushing them beyond their capacity and they are desperately looking for funds to enable them to keep caring for the animals, as well as build a new shelter.

EpisodE 3 - part 2

î&#x20AC;&#x201A;e Consequences


Will Rodrigo return to Spain? Will he meet Isabella again? Read on for part two of Episode 3 Several months ago his ship had escorted a galleon from the Caribbean back to Spain. The amount of silver it was carrying was sufficient to warrant an escort. The galleon had been safely delivered to Barcelona and it was here that he was informed that he would be taking an important passenger back to Santiago de Cuba. This passenger turned out to be Isabella. She had been rowed out to the ship, along with two maids, in a large lighter that was heavily laden with all her luggage. On stepping aboard the ship, her appearance had halted all activity. She was a beautiful woman, one that all men dream about. The dress she wore was a lightweight material of pale yellow with dark blue silk stitching; it hugged her figure. A parasol of the same colour protected her white skin from the sun and her long black hair was held up by combs of pale tortoise shell and silver. She stood on deck, oblivious to the stares and looked about her before her gaze fell on Rodrigo; she smiled and

extended her hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain, I am Isabella Rivera de Cruz,â&#x20AC;? she said in a silky cultured voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Madam, Captain Rodrigo Cortez Vivar, your servant,â&#x20AC;? replied Rodrigo to the introduction, bending to kiss her hand. He realised that he too had been staring at her and was now captivated by her deep violet eyes. The spell was broken by the Petty Officers shouts to get the lighter unloaded and Rodrigo escorted her to his cabin that he had prepared for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for giving up your cabin for me Captain. Would you dine here with me tonight, I have some delicacies in my luggage that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure will compensate you for any inconvenience,â&#x20AC;? sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d requested, flirtatiously grasping his arm. That was the way that the voyage continued. Rodrigo dined with her most evenings and found that she was the most interesting, intriguing woman he had ever met. He learnt that her trip to Santiago de Cuba was in order to marry the Governor, Hernando Roberto de Rios, a

man twenty years her senior. It was an arranged marriage, an exchange of her position and influence for his wealth. The voyage passed quickly and by the time they dropped anchor in the harbour of Santiago de Cuba Rodrigo was totally infatuated with this woman. Rodrigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ship was not in harbour very long, for after reading dispatches from Spain the Governor assigned him to deliver further dispatches to the various Spanish satellites within the Caribbean. This took him over a month and on his return the marriage had already taken place, but even so, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been invited to a celebration dance at the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. It was a lavish affair with all the social elite of the island in attendance. When he saw Isabella again she was dressed in an off-white dress decorated with pearls that were sewn on with gold and silver thread. She radiated beauty and smiled when she saw him, but he thought that her eyes reflected a sadness that he had not seen in them

before. When he danced with her, the perfume and her closeness made him feel light-headed. He was musing on how he, a grown man, was like an inexperienced adolescent when near her. Then, at the end of the dance, Isabella leaned close to him touching her cheek to his. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rodrigo, I must see you alone â&#x20AC;Ś please! â&#x20AC;Śmeet me in the music room in half an hour,â&#x20AC;? she whispered, her breath tickling his ear. Her voice had a touch of desperation, â&#x20AC;&#x153;knock once!â&#x20AC;? She then turned and disappeared amongst the many guests. Rodrigo kept the rendezvous, wondering at her desperate tone. As soon as he knocked on the large white double doors, one of them opened and Isabella pulled him inside. She turned the key in the lock; then crushed her body against his, pulling his head to hers, devouring his lips. Rodrigo was overwhelmed, returning the kiss with the same passion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isabella?â&#x20AC;? he questioned when their lips finally parted. She put two fingers on his

lips to silence him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shhh Rodrigo â&#x20AC;Śmake love to me â&#x20AC;Śhard and strong like a man should â&#x20AC;Śnot like some sweating, grunting walrus â&#x20AC;Ś make love to me!â&#x20AC;? She kissed him again. Rodrigo could not resist as she fumbled with the fastenings on the front of his breeches. He moved her backwards to a marbletopped side table, lifting her gently onto it. He bent to kiss her neck, moving his hands down to her ankles. He ran his hands softly up her calves, lifting her gown. His fingers felt along her thighs, moving round to grip the soft mounds of her buttocks. Her legs locked around his waist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now! â&#x20AC;ŚRodrigo â&#x20AC;Śnow!â&#x20AC;? came her breathless plea. Rodrigo realised that she was not wearing undergarments, she had planned this. But he could not help himself; he was lost in his desire for her. He pulled her towards him and robustly proceeded to fulfil her request. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain! â&#x20AC;ŚCaptain!â&#x20AC;? came the cry and Rodrigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes snapped open. Nicholas

was standing over him, his hand on his shoulder, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you were having a dream.â&#x20AC;? The sun was higher in the sky, how long had he slept? Rodrigo stood up from the chair shaking his head to clear his mind. He looked at Nicholas, that concerned look was on the youthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, Nicholas â&#x20AC;Śdonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all it was â&#x20AC;Śa dream,â&#x20AC;? he said in a melancholy voice, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just an impossible dream. So come, time for some sleep before I see the Count. It seems that we are returning to Spain.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spain,â&#x20AC;? repeated Nicholas, his excitement evident from the smile on his face. Rodrigo laughed at the youthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excitement, placing his hand on Nicholasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shoulder, as they both turned to enter the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mansion.

Your Weekly Entertainment Guide INSIDE THIS WEEK Happy second birthday party at JK’s Nov 12th New ITS production - Friday 12th until Sunday 14th Audition notice - Jack and the Beanstalk - Sat 6th

A chapter in the history books - forever linked to a hilltop town S

o many of the towns and villages in Cadiz province are rarely visited by other than those prepared to leave behind the busy Costa del Sol and its familiar tourist spots.It can be difficult to find accommodation in the region – especially in the summer months when Sevillanos head South – and that's one reason why there are plans afoot for a huge hotel in the area.


ut go out of season and search out small hostals and hotels to use as a base to explore – and find yourself visiting a part of Spain whose history resonates with childhood memories of history lessons.


tart in the ancient hilltop town of Medina Sidonia – believed by many to be the oldest city in Europe. After being in Phoenician and Roman hands it was conquered in 712 by the Muslim commander Musa ibn Nusair, when it became the capital of the province of Sidonia, in the emirate of Spain.


ollowing its reconquest by Alfonso X in 1264 it was to became home to one of Spain's most illustrious, ancient and wealthy ducal seats and has a place in English, as well as Spanish, history books.


he town is a familiar jumble of tiny cobbled streets, three Moorish gates

and houses that hint at the grandeur of days gone by. Its architecture reflects developments over the centuries and the elegant Plaza de España is dominated by the Renaissance facade of the 17th century town hall. Plaza Iglesia Mayor contains the Santa Maria la Coronada church, built over a mosque and inside the church is a splendid 15 metre high retablo depicting scenes from the life of Christ. The castle was begun in the 13th century and the ducal stables were built in the 16th century.


edina was important in Roman times, when it was known as Asido Ceasarina, and you can visit the extensive remains of remarkable

Written by Andrea MacLean

Roman sewers buried beneath the town's eastern flank. They date from the 1st century AD and, at over two metres high, are a tribute to Roman engineering skills. There is also an amazingly wellpreserved stretch of paved Roman road beneath a nearby building.

Cadiz Bay, and the Duke rallied local militia to defend the city. He was appointed Captain General of Andalucia and as the friction grew between Elizabeth 1 of England, and Spain´s Philip II, the Duke found himself appointed Commander in Chief of the Spanish Armada.



edina Sidonia became one of Spain's most important ducal seats, when the dukedom was awarded by Juan II to Juan Antonio Pérez de Guzman, the Count of Niebla, in 1445, for services to the crown of Castilla. It was the 7th Duke, Alonso Pérez de Guzman (1150 - 1615), who made his mark in the history books. In April 1587 Francis Drake attacked

e never claimed to have naval experience and tried to turn the post down but the King was adamant. The Duke could see the fleet's deficiencies and did his best but, as the history books show, the Armada set off in 1588 headed for disaster. The 7th Duke was publicly disgraced and his reputation remained marred in the eyes of the nation, but he returned to

Royal favour and continued to serve in high office for the rest of his life. Since then historians have been kind to the Duke and restored his reputation by demonstrating that the flaws in the Armada were nothing to do with his ineptitude and everything to do with the problems he tried to highlight.


he principal residence of the Dukes of the House of Medina Sidonia was the Palace of Medina Sidonia, in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. More on this next week.

Spiders.. Made to make your mouth water

email: web:


Burke and Hare


BY JOHN LANDIS Starring Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis Well, it has a good pedigree. A director with hits like An American Werewolf in London and the Michael Jackson video Thriller under his belt.

So where did it go wrong? Suffice to say that the critics have been underwhelmed by this comedy caper with a macabre twist.

Actors like Serkis and Pegg, and Tom Wilkinson, plus the legendary comic Ronnie Corbett in a small (obviously) but scenestealing role.

If it had been a gothic comedy in American Werewolf vein all would have been well. But sadly it has been given a pretty well universal thumbs down.



Mission Impossible

No 3D for new Batman

The 4th instalment of Mission Impossible will be called Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise will star again and appeared at a press conference in Dubai with co-stars Paula Patten and Jeremy Renner to confirm the new title. The movie is due to release in December 2011.

Transformers Shia LaBeouf has moved on from Wall Street to what looks like being the last in the series of franchise Transformers. Transformers 3 will be called The Dark Of The Moon and will also star Frances McDormand and John Malkovitch. Megan Fox has been replaced by Brit actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The director Michael Bay has promised a "killer ending" and reckons it will be the end of the line. It's scheduled for release next July.

It's based on the true story of William Burke (Pegg) and William Hare (Serkis), the grave robbers who supplied a 19th century Edinburgh doctor (Wilkinson) with cadavers for his anatomy classes. When there aren´t enough bodies to meet the law of supply and demand the pair go on a covert murder spree to make up quotas.

Wee Tam McLintock (Corbett) from the Edinburgh Militia is hot on their heels. Cue lots of celeb cameos (watch out for Christopher Lee, Bill Bailey, Stephen Merchant and Michael Winner – yep, that's right) and some daft sub-plots – but don t expect a thriller.

Director Christopher Nolan is resisting current trends and has announced that the third in his tranche of Batman movies - The Dark Knight Rises - will not be shot in 3D. He prefers Imax and high definition cameras.

The previous movie, 2008's The Dark Knight, is 7th in the list of highest grossing films of all time and starred Heath Ledger in a posthumous Oscar winning performance as the Joker. The Dark Knight Rises is aiming for a July 2012 release.


ot that it takes a lot to scare me. I can always be counted on to jump at the appropriate places, to scream where required and to cover my face at the gory bits. I love the adrenalin rush you get with a good horror. I like the suspense, the creepiness and the shock of it all. I also love the giggles you get when you realise you’ve been had by someone else’s well timed bang or a hideous face popping into shot.


can be difficult company to watch scary films with. I do wriggle and squirm with anticipation and I do literally jump out of my seat when frightened. One of the best examples of this was when I went to see Arachnophobia when it was released in 1990.

The film will feature new characters to face Christian Bale's Caped Crusader. Sir Michael Caine will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred and British actor Tom Hardy is slated to play a villain.

ou might think with Halloween just behind us that now is not the time to be thinking about scary films but to be honest, as the nights draw in and I retreat to the warm dark corners of my sofa instead of laying sprawled out on a sunbed (scary in itself), I do find I am more in the mood to be frightened than in the boiling heat of an Andalucian summer.

ow I knew I was scared of spiders. I knew what arachnophobia meant and I knew I was taking a big step going to watch a scary film about spiders. My stepson Chris was about 14 at the time and he and my cousin Ross who was the same age, thought it was really funny to watch me start to hyperventilate as the horrid eight-legged creatures worked their magic on the hairs down the back of my neck. As the first ‘dead’ spider is picked up and closely studied by one of the scientists in the film, I could anticipate that it was about to suddenly come to life and attack but somehow that knowledge didn’t help when it made its move. As the spider jumped from the scientists’ hand towards his

face, I jumped out of my seat and screamed like a stuck pig. What I had forgotten in my panic, was that I was also opening a big cinema sized bag of Opal Fruits at that exact moment, the contents of which went up in the air with me.


ow apart from being scared by the film and petrified by my scream, everyone else around us was then showered in Opal Fruits as they fell back to earth. As the kind people around me started passing the sweets back to me after I had retaken my seat, Chris and Ross literally laughed themselves windless. They were both choking as they gasped for air, causing yet more disturbance to the rest of the audience. I did manage to make it through the rest of the film without more screaming but Arachnophobia goes down as a significant point in our family’s cinema-going history.


did repeat the screamand-confectionary incident during an otherwise very tame Catherine Zeta Jones and Liam Neeson film, The Haunting, only this time the cinema was in Blackpool and it was popcorn that ‘lay round about, deep and crisp and even’. That film has nothing too scary in it except a skeleton that pops up from beneath a flagstone behind a baronial fireplace. Once again I screamed but this time I was not alone. So enjoying the placid and quite boring film were the rest of the audience of seven souls (Sunday afternoon in Blackpool you see), that my scream literally shocked them awake, making all but one of them scream the second after me.


part from the wasted nibbles, I’m quite entertaining company when it comes to scary films. And people ask why we haven’t had any horror movies at La Trocha?

An independent you rises from the ashes and you stand tall in readiness and courage to ‘go it alone’. The key is to remain positive in all that you do and not let negative emotions cloud your mind and then you will find the inspiration and confidence, to achieve a great many things. You have been through some tough times lately and now you are destined to go down a path you haven’t trod before, take a deep breath Aries and answer the call. You have been asked to ‘trust and have faith’ and it probably feels as though you have been tested to the hilt in this area particularly when it comes to relationship issues. With Venus still being retrograde a lot of revelations have taken place. In the main you realise there is no going back, your life experiences and natural evolution have moved you into a new place, giving you an awareness of what you now need and how you naturally fit into that picture. You basically have the ‘world in the palm of your hand’ whether you consciously realise it or not. Improving, maintaining and working on cultivating your niche is what really matters now. Life has been way too serious and intense, even though you will still feel compelled to analyse and dig, a certain worrying edge has been taken off things which allows you the time to relax when you need to. So go ahead and spoil yourself rotten – you deserve it. It is time to set the wheels of action into motion in your own life instead of thinking about how to sort out others’ lives. Take some chances and express your true feelings and thoughts to someone whom you would normally feel comfortable holding back. It is your time to shine as prosperity is longing to knock on your door, so let’s give it a helping hand. Be original, daring and creative as possible; take those risks with your expressions that have been longing to be unleashed. So you think you have a certain person all figured out? There is more to this person than meets the eye and perhaps shortly you will have to admit that some things are beyond your control or insight to predict. Your energy could be used to great advantage by focusing it on planting seeds to build up your home life. It is time to figure out what works for you and what doesn’t, you are fed up with foundations that crumble and need one that is based on ‘truth’. Others seem intent on saying what they think you want to hear but in reality the promises are never delivered and you are becoming fed up with the artificial. Let others know how you really feel – that being let down is not a pleasant feeling, some people are actually ignorant and others have no idea that they are actually causing upset to another – speak up and let them know Virgo because enough really is enough. Seeing the real intention behind the words will be illuminating.

They say there are no short cuts to enlightenment, although some choose to take the shorter, harder and more precarious route, others prefer the traditional, well lit, safe longer path. There are certainly no short cuts for you right now – you need to take it one step at a time. Even if this doesn’t make sense now when you look back it will do. This is all about getting you to live September 23rd - in the moment, not in the past or in the future, it is important that you don’t October 22nd get too ahead of yourself and trip up.


October 23rd November 21st

A new stage is being set, you now know what you want and what you have missed and are eager to do what you can to show others the things that are of real value to you. Some of the chaos of the past is being laid to rest and it is important that you keep the lines of communication open and are honest with those close to you. Let others see the ‘real’ you. Romance has been missing from your life lately, it is perhaps time to ignite some passion and let another know how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS Make that choice Sagittarius, and then stick to it. It has been driving you ‘nuts’ lately trying to sort out the various options that are before you, now it is time to choose one and go forward in one single-minded direction. Listen to your heart and not external mutterings and really deep down you know which one to pick. Get rid of those worries and fears that have been invading your mind November 22nd - and certainly forget public opinion – listen to the ‘real’ inner you. December 21st

CAPRICORN A strong, determined, cautious and calm you is seen by others this week, it is a high powered time with many work and career pressures that could weigh you down. Others are perhaps expecting to see a more timid, stressed and jerky you – the thing is Capricorn you have reached a turning point in understanding your true power, these past weeks have laid the foundations nd December 22 for ambition, success and reputation – the world is now your oyster.

A helping hand is coming your way in the form of love and material support. Even though the end result of a project may not be clear, bear in mind that one thing does definitely lead to another, so trust your instincts and go with flow – the chain reactions that are now occurring will lead you to where you are meant to be. You could do with some frivolity right now so make sure you have a good night out and some fun with close friends – it will do you the world of good. You deserve to be happy so make sure you take that stand when it is needed. Others may have walked right over you in the past but times have changed and there is no way they are going to get away with it now. Recover that piece of personal power, take up the warrior’s stance and reclaim what is rightfully yours.

Alcohol 'more harmful than heroin'

Ray Moynihan, in his book with the same title, has exposed the lucrative industry being built around the newly constructed condition of female sexual dysfunction or FSD. In 1999, a study found that 43% of women suffer from sexual dysfunction. By 2005, another study upped that figure to a staggering 63%. So Moynihan, an award-winning health journalist and international author, documentary-maker and academic researcher,

teamed up with drug assessment specialist Barbara Mintzes to take a closer look at the problem – and concluded that no such medical condition exists. In their book, they say that the “disorder” was invented by the pharmaceutical companies to create a market for their drugs. Not only did they invent the

disorder, they used wildly misleading figures to indicate the scale of the problem. The 43% claim stems from a survey which asked women if they had experienced any difficulties with sex in the previous year. Any woman answering “yes” was entered as having sexual

dysfunction. In their book, Moynihan and Mintzes said: “Companies no longer just sell drugs. They have created a disease like FSD and are spending a fortune on 'educating' doctors to prescribe strong drugs that women don't need and which are unlikely to help them.” More rigorous studies

have shown that the proportion of women with sexual problems so serious that they feel they need help is closer to 6%. Unlike male impotence, women's problems tend not to be mechanical but are related to relationship difficulties or traumatic experiences that no drugs can help.

Leisure-time exercise lowers depression risk People who regularly exercise during their free time are less likely to have symptoms of depression and anxiety than those whose physical activity is part and parcel of the working day. %

That was the conclusion in a study of 40,000 Norwegians by researchers from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London and academics from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the University of Bergen in Norway. The researchers said higher levels of social interaction during leisure time were found to be part of the reason for the link. A spokesman said it was probably because there was not the same level of social

interactionin the work place: "We found that the context in which activity takes place is vital and that the social benefits associated with exercise, like increased numbers of friends and social support, are more important in understanding how exercise may be linked to improved mental health than any biological markers of fitness.” He said that could explain why leisure activity appears to have benefits not seen with physical activity undertaken as part of a working day. A spokesman

for the mental health charity Mind said: "Exercise gives you a natural high and is a great way to boost your mood. However, another mental health benefit of physical activity is derived from social interaction. So going out with a running club, team sport or working on a communal allotment is far better for your mental well-being than a physically demanding job.” Mind has found that after just a short country walk 90% of people had increased self-esteem.

Alcohol is more harmful than heroin or crack, according to a joint study by Professor David Nutt, the former UK chief drugs adviser, who was sacked by the government in October 2009, and Dr Les King, another former government adviser who quit over Prof Nutt's treatment. Prof Nutt refused to leave the drugs debate after he was sacked by the former Labour Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, and went on to form the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, a body which aims to investigate the drug issue without any political interference. One of its other members is Dr Les King. In a report published in the medical journal, The Lancet, Prof Nutt describes how members of the group, joined by two other experts, scored each drug for harms including mental and physical damage, addiction, crime and costs to the economy and communities. The modelling exercise concluded that heroin, crack cocaine and methylamphetamine were the most harmful drugs to individuals, but alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the most harmful to others. When the scores for both types of harm were added together, alcohol emerged as the most harmful drug, followed by heroin and crack. Their findings run contrary to the government's longestablished drug classification system, but the paper's authors argue that their system – based on the consensus of experts – provides an accurate assessment of harm for policy makers. In the report, they said: "Our findings lend support to previous work in the UK and the Netherlands, confirming that the present drug classification systems have little relation to the evidence of harm. They also accord with the conclusions of previous expert reports that aggressively targeting alcohol harms is a valid and necessary public health strategy."

Celebrity spotlight

î&#x20AC;&#x201A;e hills are alive with the Prince of Pop hits NÂş 1 sound of cash tills ringing... Actor Christopher Plummer famously called it "The Sound of Mucus" and refused to talk about it for decades. But he has finally given way and joined the entire cast, reunited for the first time last week, to mark the 45th anniversary of the musical classic The Sound of Music.

Twenty eight years ago the Prince of Pop, Michael Jackson, was about to unleash on the world one of the biggest selling albums of all time, which spawned a whole new industry - the sophisticated, hitech music video produced to Hollywood movie standards in the shape of director John Landis's unforgettable Thriller.

Pop, 50 when he died, outstripped living stars too, earning more than Lady GaGa, Madonna and Jay-Z combined, said the magazine.

The album sold millions and the video is now iconic - instantly recognisable and part of music lore. Jackson's sudden death in July of last year sparked an outpouring of grief throughout the world and the DVD of rehearsal footage for his "This Is It" concert comeback hit the top of the bestseller list. It was part of a spending spree that has made Jackson this year's top earning dead celebrity, according to the US's Forbes magazine.

Elvis Presley was 2nd, earning $60 million from Graceland admission fees, a Cirque du Soleil show, and licensing and merchandising deals. Not all those on the "dead" list were musicians. J.R.R. Tolkien, helped by the movies of the Lord of The Rings Trilogy and the upcoming Hobbit prequels, was 3rd, and Charlie Brown and Snoopy creator Charles Schulz was 4th. John Lennon was 5th with an income of $17 million. Swedish author Stieg Larsson, who wrote The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - a Swedish movie hit worldwide and currently being remade in Hollywood with Daniel Craig, was 6th.

His estate has raked in $275 million worldwide - that is more than the combined total of the other 12 celebrities on the list and sees him leap from last year's 3rd spot when his earnings were $90 million. Not only that, the Prince of

Last year's list was topped by fashion designer Yves St Laurent, who dropped out of the top ten this year. Predictions are that Michael Jackson will hold onto the top spot now for many years to come - just like his most famous album, Thriller.

Dame Julie Andrews, 75, and Plummer, aqed 80, joined the "Von Trapp children" for a special appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. None of the actors who played the children enjoyed much success as adult actors but Plummer and Dame Julie are still working today. Plummer voiced a character in the Oscar nominated animation "Up" last year and Dame Julie has famously provided the voice-over for The Queen in all the Shrek movies.

The film has been a Christmas TV staple for years, has stimulated tourism in Austria as holidaymakers enjoy special Sound of Music trips to visit locations, and brought a whole new audience into cinemas for the sing-a-long version,

sing-a-longs, a map of filming locations, quizzes, and a full length documentary, goes on sale next Monday, November 8th, in time for Christmas shopping.

Plummer, who played the handsome Captain Von Trapp, the widower who famously married Maria, the nun who became nanny to his seven children, had said in his autobiography that he had felt the film, about the family's escape from the Nazi's, had been far too saccharine for his taste. But he admitted on the programme that time had mellowed his view. To mark the anniversary a re-mastered DVD and BluRay set, including

Leaked photos have appeared online, purporting to show the fabled 'PlayStation Phone', which could be launched next year The photos, which were leaked onto Engadget’s site, purported to show a Sony Ericsson handset combined with a PlayStation Portable games

console. The blog speculated that the device will run the upcoming version of Google’s Android operating system, known as Gingerbread, along with a custommade “Sony Marketplace” that will enable people to download games designed specifically for the device.




China MPs accuse Google claims on wi-fi data computer MPs have accused Google of deliberately crown collecting wi-fi data for commercial gain.

Facebook uncovers user data sales Facebook has taken action against developers it caught selling user names and contact lists. The sales were uncovered as Facebook investigated a web browser bug that let user IDs be shared inadvertently. The user details were sold to data brokers who used the information to target adverts more precisely. The developers have been banned for six months from connecting to Facebook and must be audited to check they comply with the social network's policies.

Facebook started investigating what was happening with user identifiers (UIDs) following media reports that the information and lists of contacts were being sold on to advertising firms. In a blog post, Facebook said its investigation showed that the technical demands of some browsers meant that some user IDs were being leaked. It also discovered that some developers that create applications for the

social network were taking the user IDs of those who used their applications and selling them on.

It is another twist to events kicked off by the search giant s collecting of millions of pieces of sensitive information via its Street View cars.

China has claimed the top spot on the list of the world's supercomputers.

Facebook said the investigation "determined that no private user data was sold and confirmed that transfer of these UIDs did not give access to any private data."

To reach such high speeds the machine draws on more than 7,000 graphics processors and 14,000 Intel chips.

Despite this, it said, it took the breach "seriously" and had imposed a sixmonth ban on the developers it caught out.

The claim to be the fastest machine on the planet has been ratified by the Top 500 Organisation which maintains a list of the most powerful machines.

Microsoft lifted by record sales Microsoft has announced a 51% rise in first-quarter profit, thanks to higher sales of its flagship Windows and Office software.

Revenues increased by 25% to $16.2bn – a company record for the first quarter.

But Microsoft said that in the same quarter last year it had deferred some revenue from Windows sales. Had it not done so, its net profit would have been only 16% higher in comparison.

"This was an exceptional quarter, combining solid enterprise growth and continued strong consumer demand for Office 2010, Windows 7, and Xbox 360 consoles and games," said Peter Klein, chief financial

The code was created by a Google engineer as part of a wider project to map wi-fi hotspots but should never have found its way into Street View cars, the search giant said.

Turkey lifts twoyear ban on YouTube Turkey has lifted its ban on YouTube, two years after it blocked access to the website because of videos deemed insulting to the country's founder.

The video clip prompting the ban was reportedly posted by Greek users of the website and dubbed Ataturk and Turks homosexuals.

Transport Minister Binali Yildirim, who is in charge of internet issues, said the government had been in contact with Google, which owns YouTube.

The move was nevertheless widely criticised by many Turks, including the President Abdullah Gul, who asked officials to find a solution.

Mr Yildirim said there was no longer any reason to ban the website, because the offending videos had been removed. Insulting Mustafa Kemal Ataturk or "Turkishness" is illegal in Turkey.

Bond’s DB5 goes for £3m The American businessperson Harry Yeaggy has purchased the 1964 Aston Martin DB5, as featured in Goldfinger, the James Bond classic. Yeaggy becomes just the second person, ever, to take ownership of this iconic vehicle, and how much was it that Yeaggy parted with for this piece of motoring/movie history? No less than £3 million pounds. Previous owner, radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, purchased the vehicle in 1969, for just $12,000.

Lorenzo leads Yamaha to Triple Crown Yamaha completed a clean sweep of all three titles – Riders', Teams' and Constructors' – for the third year running, a supreme achievement. The 1st time that any manufacturer has won 3 times in a row. Jorge Lorenzo took his first MotoGP victory in 7 races & since wining the 2010 world championship, at Estoril on Sunday. Lorenzo's eighth victory of the season, but first since Brno in mid-August, also continued a perfect personal record at Estoril, where he has won from pole on all three MotoGP appearances. His victory was far from straightforward though, after a weekend of rain the

riders were riding a virtually 'unknown dry track'.

Desmosedici on lap 5.

Lorenzo made a strong start from pole, taking the lead into the first corner before briefly relinquishing it to Ducati's Nicky Hayden. Lorenzo's Fiat Yamaha team-mate Rossi made a play for the lead on lap four, relegating the Spaniard to second until lap 17 of 28, where a decisive out-braking manoeuvre saw Lorenzo retake the lead.In the meantime Casey Stoner who had really been making inroads into the lead that Rossi and Lorenzo had built crashed out after losing the front of his

8.629sec advantage over Rossi, making it the biggest victory margin of the year. "On the warm-up lap I could see there were still a few wet parts and I knew that I was going to have to be careful at the beginning," recalled Lorenzo. "I got a great start and was in the lead but eventually Valentino overtook me and then off he went. He had a better pace than me then and I couldn't go with him.

Lorenzo then pulled a massive

"As the track got drier I found my pace improving and then step-by-step I closed the gap and was able to get past him. At that point I felt really good and I am so happy to win for the

third time here at Estoril. "It was a long time since I have won but my confidence has remained high and I haven't been worried. I knew I could win here at my favourite track. We also confirmed the Triple Crown for Yamaha today so well done to the whole team for this victory." "This is victory number eight and after a few races of not winning we are happy to be first again!" added team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. "We need to keep our focus for Valencia because it would be great to finish this fantastic season with one more win." The finale to the season takes place at Valencia this coming Sunday.

Formed in 1926, Pontiac made cars for the working class until a sales slump in the 1950s nearly killed it. GM revived the brand by connecting it to auto racing. From then on, each Pontiac sales boom was driven by speed. The cars had huge horsepower and appeal, forever remembered for the film Smokey and the Bandit where Burt Reynolds and Sally Field fled the law in a Firebird Trans Am. The GTO, came about when some GM engineers took a small car called the Tempest and put a powerful V8 engine under the bonnet. The letters stood for "Gran Turismo Omologato," Italian for "ready to race."

The happy faces of the winning couples

The Ball and Chain final was between Amber and Lennie Dineen from Benalmadina & Jean and Brian Lancaster from Mijas. It was a close game and both teams played well for most of the match with Amber and Lennie winning by three points. The Final of the Plate was between Kate Morris and

Wright. Barbara thanked all the bowlers who entered the competition and hoped that they will try again next year. She also thanked the marshals for their work during the contest. The sponsor was Francisco Romero and their representative Jo Winstanley presented the prizes.

After a battling goalless draw away in Alicante against Hercules in the King’s Cup on Wednesday night, hopes were high for Malaga to end their run of pointless home form. The game took some time to spark into life until Malaga gained a freekick but it was put just over the bar by Eliseu. He was then off target from long range twice more, the second effort a delicate lob. Griezmann then shot wide at the other end before Malaga's Fernando headed over from close range. It was Real Sociedad who broke the deadlock two minutes before the break with Griezmann slotting home after a good move. Malaga left the field to a chorus of whistles as the crowd began to lose patience. Real Sociedad's confidence grew in the second half and on 55

Yet another Malaga horror show

minutes they increased their lead when Llorente headed home from the left side of the six-yard box following a cross from Priento. Malaga brought on strikers Juanmi and Edinho to try something new up front, and on 77 minutes Fernandez was bought down inside the box to give Malaga a lifeline. Apono stepped up only to see his effort saved, but as play continued the ball was swung in by Gamez and local lad Juanmi slid home.

Malaga try as they might just couldn't find an equaliser and the game ended in yet another home defeat. At the end of the game the white hankies came out and the whistles rang out again as Malaga slipped into the bottom three. In a game where they should have picked up 3 points it just wasn’t good enough. Report by Scott Forbes

turned down The International Cricket Council has upheld the provisional suspensions of Pakistan duo Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir after turning down their appeals. The duo, along with Mohammad Asif who withdrew his appeal, were suspended while the ICC investigated spot-fixing claims from their tour of England. ICC code of conduct head Michael Beloff said: "I've dismissed the application. "All three players accordingly are still, for the time being, unable to participate in cricketing activities."

Higgins to return in German tournament Three-time world champion John Higgins is to return to snooker this month after serving a sixmonth ban for bringing the sport into disrepute. The Scot faces Joe Jogia in a European Tour Championship event in Germany that runs from 11th to 14th November. In September, Higgins was fined £75,000 and suspended - backdated to May - for not reporting an illegal approach made to him to discuss throwing frames. Higgins, despite his

enforced ban, is still ranked third in the world. Reigning world champion Neil Robertson has said that some players will be surprised that Higgins will be playing again so soon, but urged his fellow players to show Higgins respect. "It's not John Higgins' fault. All he can do is plead his case and take whatever the suspension or fine was. I think everyone's looking forward to having John back in the game. He's a fantastic player.

"We're all human beings and make mistakes. John will be welcomed back by me for sure. "Having the likes of John and Ronnie [O'Sullivan] at their peak and still in the game is fantastic and when John comes back it will be another world-class player to beat, and that makes me even more inspired to practise harder." Robertson is enjoying his first season as the reigning world champion, and added the World Open to his title collection last month.

C.O.G.S. McDowell Reigns in Spain day out at La Quinta Coin Open Golf Society's latest outing was to La Quinta Golf & Country Club, and having just hosted the Benhavis Senior Masters won by Thailand's Boonchu Ruangkit, hopes that the course would be in tip-top condition were dashed. But after some admin errors by the host club, meaning tee times were put back an hour, the guys finally managed to get in a great days golf. First place went to the ever improving Olly O'Brien. Playing off a Hcp

of 9, Olly managed to knock it round to score a respectable 30 points, 2nd place on countback went to Ian Thorne with 29 points, 3rd place to Terry Birtles. The team prize was won by Chris Spoakes, Brian Millwood, Dave Haworth and Andy MacFarlane with 74 points, longest drive was won by Russell Wood, and nearest the pin by Tony Hussey. Nearest the pin in two went to....Doh!! The next day out is at Santa Clara on Saturday November 20th

With blustery weather conditions, Europe's Ryder Cup hero, Graeme McDowell continued his golden season to break into the top 10 in the world golf rankings, after clinching his victory at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in San Roque last Sunday.

With pressure on Kaymer, who fired a final-round 75 to finish 10 shots behind winner Graeme McDowell, the U.S. Open champion McDowell, closed with a three-over 74 for a threeunder 281 total, winning by two strokes from compatriot Gareth Maybin, Dane Soren Kjeldsen and Irishman Damien McGrane. German Martin Kaymer needed a top-two finish at Valderrama to become number one himself but ended Sunday's fourth round seven over – unfortunately for him it was way off the lead. "Of course I'm disappointed," said Kaymer "I thought if I had a fast weekend I could still play a role but I missed too many putts. You have to accept it isn't your week. I don't think trying to get to number one played any part. It was in the back of my mind but I didn't play differently, any more

aggressively or defensively. I liked the challenge and I think I'll have another chance in the next few weeks. Lee deserves it, he's one of the greatest guys on the European Tour."

After Kaymer failed to take the lead, England's Lee Westwood, who was nursing a calf injury at home at the time, became world number one golfer, ending American Tiger Woods’s 281-week reign at the top of the sport. The 37- year- old Englishman has become Europe's first number one golfer since compatriot Nick Faldo achieved the feat in 1994. For Tiger Woods it seems a remarkable fall from grace after his irrepressible reputation and record of 18 major wins. It hasn’t been a good season for the American who suffered a knee injury, continuous revelations about his personal life and a recent marriage break-up, forcing him to take an extended break from the game and fall behind. It’s hardly surprising that these sequences of events, have cost him the World No 1 crown. But Woods will be teeing up at next week's WGC-HSBC Championships at Sheshan

International in China, after qualifing with his victory at the JB Were Masters last November. Lee Westwood will also return to action next week confronting Tiger Woods, who without a doubt, will be ready to

pounce and bite right back. The fortunate thing for Westwood is that the two of them are friends and enjoy a friendly rivalry. Report by Claire Voet

Power Snooker breaks cover Ronnie O’Sullivan defeated Chinaman Ding Junhui in the final of the inaugura Power Snooker event at the 02 in London. The tournament wasn’t without controversy as Ronnie O’Sullivan shocked ITV viewers with a four -letter outburst after beating Belgian Luca Brecal, 15, at the new Power Snooker format in London, O’Sullivan said: Luca made 50 in a minute , I thought “S**t, man.

Webber accused of trying to take out rivals Webber crashed out in last Sunday’s Korean Grand Prix and was accused on team’s own television station The astonishing claims are all the more intriguing because they come from former Formula One driver Gerhard Berger, a close friend of fellow Austrian and Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz. Referring to Webber losing control in the

wet, hitting a wall and ricocheting across to the other side of the Yeongam track, Berger said: 'He could have hit the brakes and stopped the car at the wall. 'He took out Rosberg, but it was the wrong one. I think

he got the wrong one. I think in his mind he would have preferred (Fernando) Alonso or (Lewis) Hamilton.' This is all pure fabrication by Berger and further fuelled the suspicion that Red Bull's Austrian hierarchy favour Webber's German teammate Sebastian Vettel over the Australian. Pressed during the programme on Servus, an Austrian channel owned and run by Red Bull, about whether or not he thought the move was deliberate,

Webber’s Red Bull after the crash in Korea

and he knows it (his race) is over. In this moment you are frustrated and a thousand thoughts go through your head.

Berger said: 'He goes off 'It's obvious. You can see his wheels are not locked up. Perhaps he had a brake problem but I don't think so.' The incident occurred on lap 19, moments after Nico Rosberg had passed Hamilton on the inside of turn three. It meant the German was taken off by Webber's Red Bull instead of

Hamilton - or Alonso, who passed by unscathed. Rosberg, whose race was ended by the impact, was less than impressed that evening, saying: 'Sucks. I don't understand why Webber didn't hit the brakes. It's crazy to roll back on to the track.' However, the case against Webber is far from proven. Many in Formula One believe it too far-fetched to be true.
