WORLD They’ve got to be kidding...

By Kym Wickham

Would somebody please explain to me why the uK government are getting away with constantly raising the pensionable age. Throughout the whole of the time (yes, for over 30 years) I was paying into my uK government pension I was told that I would get my pension at age 60. After I had paid my dues, in full, they announced they were raising the age on a rising scale to age 65. now they have just announced it will be rising to age 66! To my mind, this is a case of simple contract law. If I did X, they agreed to do Y. I have upheld my side of the contract but they can apparently do what they like. This must surely be a very easy case of breach of contract law as they are refusing to pay me 6 years money they owe me that, at today’s rate of £97.65 per week is £5,077.80 per year, totalling a whopping £30,466.80 - and we're not even getting into SERPS etc.! It would appear that the uK Government is above the laws of the land as far as contract law is concerned. If it has invested unwisely or has used what was in the coffers unwisely, why should that be our fault and why should we suffer? I can understand raising the retirement age for newcomers to the scheme as that could be under a different contract, but for people who have already paid? Sounds like theft to me! Any lawyers want to do a pro-bono? You’d have a lot of clients on percentage!

links with Havana The EU's decision on Monday to contact the Cuban government in an effort to improve ties with Havana has been hailed by the Spanish press as a first major success for newly appointed foreign minister Trinidad Jimenez. However, it was former minister Miguel Angel Moratinos who laid the groundwork over the past six years. Sra Jimenez repeated on Monday his claim that the Cuban government's pledge in July to free 52 political prisoners merited a change of attitude on the EU's part. The EU's "common position", dating back to 1996, demands that Cuba makes progress on democracy and human rights before any normalisation of ties. France and Belgium decided to back Spain and EU foreign affairs chief Baroness Ashton is now set to contact the Cuban

government to arrange future talks. Several former communist countries now in the EU are against Brussels softening the EU position on Cuba. And last week the European Parliament awarded its Sakharov Prize for human rights to Cuban dissident Guillermo Farinas, who ended a hunger strike after Havana announced it was freeing the prisoners. He was close to death after refusing food for more than 130 days. The death of another dissident while on hunger strike in February put pressure on Cub, which has always denied that it has political prisoners, calling them mercenaries paid by the US to undermine Havana's rule. In September, four recently released Cuban prisoners currently living in Spain urged the European Parliament not to revise the EU's 1996 position on Cuba.

Catalan premier backs off coalition Catalania's Socialist regional premier Jose Montilla said over the weekend that he had no intention of forming another three-way government there with the two parties whose main promise for the November 28th election is to seek a referendum on independence from Spain. Observers have said that Sr Montilla hopes his promise

will sway moderate Catalan nationalists to vote for the Socialist Party and give him a viable majority in the Catalan Parliament. However, recent polls suggest that Convergencia y Union, the party which governed Catalonia for 23 years before the Socialists formed their first three-way government in 2003, is set to win the election with a small majority.


ousands at risk from cholera spread The director general of Haiti's health department, Gabriel Thimote, confirmed on Monday that the rate of increase in cholera deaths had slowed.

Aid, said he believed the death toll would increase in the next few days. Haiti has not seen a cholera outbreak for about half a century, and many people are frightened by the news of the outbreak and unsure of what steps to take to avoid the disease.

However, the number of infections had increased by 10% since Sunday, and aid agencies insisted they would remain on alert. Mr Thimote said: “We think that the situation is stabilising. That doesn't necessarily mean we have reached a peak."

Poor sanitary conditions make the camps and slums vulnerable to cholera, which is caused by bacteria transmitted through contaminated water or food. Cholera causes diarrhoea and vomiting leading to severe dehydration, and can kill within 24 hours if left untreated. It is easily treated through

Agencies battling to contain the disease echoed Mr Thimote's caution. Harold Paul, regional emergency manager for UK aid organisation Christian

rehydration and antibiotics. UN spokeswoman Imogen Wall said most effort was being directed into setting up dedicated treatment centres and making sure people across Haiti were kept informed of the best ways to stem the spread of the virus. She said previous experience of cholera in Latin America in the early 1990s suggests that the disease could spread easily across large areas and could incubate for a number of days before presenting symptoms. Haiti has enough antibiotics to treat 100,000 cases of cholera and intravenous fluids to treat 30,000, according to the UN.

Major cabinet reshuffle doesn't convince Most polls carried out after last week's cabinet changes showed that, on average, 70% of Spaniards think they are cosmetic ones designed to help the Socialists win the regional and local elections that will take place over the next few months. A similar number believe that Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba's promotion to Deputy Prime Minister, taking the place of Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega, indicates that he has been chosen to be Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's successor for the 2012 general election. Sr

Miguelin goes to Chinese museum Economy Minister Elena Salgado on Monday gave the 6.5 metre-tall robot baby called Miguelin, which was the Spanish Pavilion’s symbol at the Shanghai Universal Expo, to its organising committee. Miguelin, who was conceived by filmmaker Isabel Coixet as a symbol of Spain’s vision of the future of cities, will be one of the main attractions at the museum to be built in Shanghai to commemorate

the exhibition. He was the most photographed exhibit in the Spanish Pavilion, which has already been visited by nearly seven million people. Sra Salgado was in Shanghai on her way back from a meeting of the

G-20 finance ministers in Gyeongju, South Korea. She announced Spain’s intention of making a gift of Miguelin during a visit to the pavilion accompanied by the director general of the Expo, Hong Hao, who

received Miguelin symbolically. Sra Salgado said it was an “extraordinarily important gift” because Miguelin represented much more than the half a million euros it cost to bring him

into the world. She said: “We could say that Miguelin is the ambassador of friendship between the peoples of China and Spain and this adorable baby will stay in Shanghai as symbol of that

friendship and to strengthen the cooperation and trade between our two countries.” Last weekend the exhibition organisers’’ aim of attracting 70 million visitors was achieved.

Ecuadorean wins siesta contest A jobless security worker from Ecuador has won a competition billed as the country's inaugural siesta championship, by napping for 17 minutes in a busy shopping centre.

Royal couple miniseries slammed The Prince looks like an idiot, Letizia comes across as a know-it-all, the Queen is a witch and the King a clown. That's the critics' verdict of the first episode of Telecinco's mini-series about the Royal love story. Monday's two-hour-long episode told how the relationship began and how Letizia, a commoner, was received at the Palace. For some reason the Queen speaks with a French accent – she was born in Greece and

learned Spanish after she married the King, but now speaks it fluently and without any trace of any kind of accent. The King acts more like a spy snooping after his son, trying to keep him under control. In a statement issued hours before the episode was aired, the Royal Household said it was not acquainted with

the contents and had not been consulted during the filming. When asked about the series at the reception held on October 12th at the Royal palace to mark National Day, Princess Letizia said she knew nothing about the production except that “very pretty actress” Amaia Salamanca plays her.

Pedro Soria Lopez took first place and €1,000 for his effort - or lack of it. Judges also praised the 62-year-old for his volume, notching up snores of 70 decibels around talking level. The contest, run by the National Association of Friends of the Siesta, was part of a

campaign to revive the siesta tradition, which is seen as threatened by the fast pace of modern life. During the nine-day contest held in Madrid's central shopping district, 360 competitors stretched out on sofas and tried to sleep as much of the 20-minute period allotted to

them as possible. Their pulses were monitored to make sure they were really asleep. Judges awarded points for the speed with which participants fell asleep, the volume of their snoring, the most original sleeping position and the best-dressed sleeper.

Prostitutes to wear reflective vests Following a law introduced by Els Alamus town hall banning sex for sale in public urban areas, women looking for customers on the LL-11 road outside the town near Lleida in Catalonia have been ordered to wear yellow fluorescent vests or pay fines of €40. A 2004 law

states that pedestrians on major highways and hard shoulders have to wear the high visibility vests. The local authorities say they are not harassing the prostitutes but protecting them from being hit by drivers. However, the sex workers themselves have accused mayor Josep Maria

Bea of trying to drive them out of the area. There are an estimated 300,000 prostitutes in Spain where prostitution is not illegal but profiting from the sale of sex is. In a recent survey, a quarter of the men questioned admitted having paid for sex.

Octopus's death shocks country

Stricter smoking ban passed

Spaniards on Tuesday were shocked to hear of the death of Paul the Octopus at the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany. Paul predicted the winners of all Germany's World Cup clashes, as well as the final. Now Spaniards are asking themselves if this means the national team will never win another World Cup match. Others were more practical, saying “Thank God we didn't pay all the money to bring him here”. Several offers of tens of thousands of euros were made so Paul could spend his last days in Spain but the Sea Life Centre turned

them all down. Staff there said his death was not unexpected, because common octopuses have a maximum life expectancy of three years. Paul was two years and ten months old, according to the centre's reckoning. Manager Stefan Porwoll said on Tuesday Paul appeared to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes. He said the centre may decide to bury Paul in his own small burial plot within the grounds and erect a modest permanent shrine.

But Paul will live on in a range of commercial enterprises ranging from special clothing lines to mobile phone applications. He will also feature in a documentary to be released early next year.


A law banning smoking in all bars and restaurants was passed in Parliament and now has to go to the Upper House, which is expected to pass the measure. Expected to become law on January 2nd, it will also make smoking illegal in public places like playgrounds, hospital grounds and at public schools. Hotels however, will be able to designate around a third of rooms specifically for smokers. The law will make Spain one of the European Union’s strictest countries as regards smoking. Most EU countries still allow restaurants and bars to have designated smoking sections. Lawmakers say the ban will save thousands of lives by cutting out passive smoking.

Christopher Columbus discovered Cuba and claimed it for Spain

War-hit countries 'most corrupt'

Indonesia tsunami leaves 123 dead At least 123 people have been killed and hundreds were missing after Monday's powerful earthquake off the coast of Sumatra triggered a localised tsunami, according to local authority reports. Dozens of houses were destroyed by waves after the 7.5 magnitude quake, which struck near the Mentawai islands. Australian officials are trying to contact a group of between eight and 10 missing surfers who were

on a charter boat in the area, but poor telephone coverage was hampering efforts to contact them.

Meanwhile, another group of Australians said their boat was destroyed by a wall of water.

A local police officer said bad weather had delayed a search and rescue operation.

Captain Rick Hallet told Australian media that his boat was anchored off Pagai Island in the

Menatawis when the waves came: "We felt a bit of a shake underneath the boat and within several minutes we heard an almighty roar, then we saw the wall of white water coming at us." The wave brought another boat

crashing into them and sparked a fire, forcing them to jump into the sea. Some of those on board were swept up to 200m inland by the wave, he said.

War-torn states are still among the most corrupt in the world, according to a new report from Transparency International, based on a poll of businesses and people in 178 nations. The worst is Somalia, followed by Burma, Afghanistan and Iraq, while Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore tie for top place as the world's least corrupt countries, with the UK 20th and the US 22nd. The Berlin-based watchdog’s report rates Russia as among the worst for corruption, in 154th place. Italy, in 67th spot, now comes below Rwanda. Emerging economic powerhouse China is in 78th place. Chile and Uruguay are rated the leastcorrupt countries in Latin America. In the Middle East, the best placed is Qatar.

President fêtes Chile miners

Canadian terrorist pleads guilty

President Sebastian Pinera fêted the 33 miners rescued after 69 days trapped underground with a palace reception in Santiago, during which each miner was given a medal to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Chile's independence from Spain, which was celebrated while they were trapped.

The 24-year-old, who had been facing a possible life sentence if convicted, was wounded and captured in Afghanistan in 2002 when he was 15. He is accused of throwing a grenade that killed US Army Sgt Christopher Speer, from New Mexico, when US troops raided an al-Qaeda compound in Afghanistan. He was charged at his war crimes tribunal with murder in violation of the laws of war, conspiracy, providing material assistance to a terrorist organisation and espionage.

The 33 also played a football match against their rescuers and government officials, with the government team winning 3-2. The teams were made up of 16 players each in order to give all the miners a chance to play and also to allow for frequent changes, as some of them are still not very fit. The total number of men on the field, including

the referee, was 33, mirroring the number of men who were trapped in the 5th August rockfall. The miners have become celebrities not just in Chile, but around the world, since being rescued nearly two weeks ago. Books are being written about their ordeal, and there is talk of Hollywood films. Some of the men have

After reaching a plea agreement with the US military authorities at Guantanamo, Omar Khadr, the youngest detainee there, has pleaded guilty to all five terror charges against him at a war crimes tribunal.

been to Spain to appear on a TV chat show, while in Santiago and at the World Expo in Shanghai, people have been queuing up to have their photographs taken next to the Phoenix escape capsules that were built to bring the men to the surface. Chilean writer Pablo Huneeus has copyrighted the message that announced that the trapped men were alive and well on behalf of the

miner who wrote it, Jose Ojeda. The message was discovered attached to a probe 17 days after the mine collapse. President Pinera showed off the note during his visit to Europe last week and in the UK gave copies of it to the Queen and prime minister David Cameron, as well as presenting each of them with a rock from the mine.

The defendant also admitted planting improvised explosive devices and receiving

weapons training from alQaeda. Details of the plea deal have not yet been disclosed but it could mean Khadr will avoid life in prison, or be returned to Canada to serve a shorter jail term. Khadr's lawyers told the court that the US had agreed to support Khadr's request to return to Canada after one year to serve the rest of his sentence, adding that his return would ultimately be left in the hands of the Canadian government. The US is the first country since World War II to prosecute a person at a war crimes tribunal for actions allegedly committed as a juvenile. Critics of Guantanamo Bay have said Khadr should not be prosecuted because of his age at the time of the Afghanistan battle. US President Barack Obama has pledged to close the Guantanamo facility, but Congress has repeatedly blocked his efforts.

Students try to boost French protests French students staged protests on Tuesday to try to boost opposition to the government's pension reforms among signs of cracks in the movement. Three of 12 national oil refineries have voted to end their action and a rubbish collectors' strike in Marseille was suspended. The row comes to a head this week, with Parliament expected to hold a final vote on Wednesday to bring into law an increase in the minimum retirement age from 60 to 62. The students are on a half-term

break which they plan to use for a series of marches around the country in opposition to the plan to increase the retirement age. Another nationwide strike has been called for Thursday. The authorities see the protests as a litmus test as to whether they are running out of steam. Rubbish collectors in Marseille ended their high-

Mr Marchionne had said that eliminating lossmaking Italian plants would increase financial gains. He said: "Fiat cannot continue operating these factories at a loss forever." He added that the country ranked 118th out of 139 countries in work

But the speaker of parliament, Gianfranco Fini, said the only reason Fiat was still a "colossus" was due to the Italian taxpayer, referring to government bonus schemes introduced to support the automobile industry during the global

Now four other dolphins, including young infants, have been recorded trying to learn the trick from the two adults, and have been seen practising, less successfully, in the river. Billie is thought to have learned the trick during a brief period when she was held captive in a

dolphinarium, before being released back into the wild. She passed the behaviour onto Wave. The behaviour, when a dolphin beats its tail fluke repeatedly so it lifts its body vertically out of the water, is seen among captive, trained dolphins but it is extremely rare in the wild.

financial downturn. Fiat has been waging a bitter battle with the Italian unions over the company's plans to improve productivity through stricter working conditions and shut down a factory in Sicily. The head of Italy's biggest union, CGIL, Guglielmo Epifani, said the

CEO's comments reflected his underlying intent to abandon the country, saying: "The truth is that Marchionne would like to leave Italy." The company reported a sevenfold jump in profits, making €190 million in net profit in the past three months, up from €25 million a year ago.


Dolphins learn to 'walk on water' Scientists at Australia's Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society have reported seeing six wild dolphins mastering the technique of "walking" on water - furiously paddling their tail fluke, forcing their body out and across the water. Dr Mike Bossley said the dolphins seem to walk on water for fun, as it has no other obvious benefit. He said that makes the behaviour a rare example of animals "culturally transmitting" a playful rather than foraging behaviour. In past years, he has witnessed two wild adult female dolphins, named Billie and Wave for research purposes,

The government has warned that the disruption is threatening the country's fragile economic recovery. Finance Minister Christine Lagarde said on Monday that the strikes were costing France up to €400 million a day.

Possible UK Another UK bank holiday pension rise Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith and pensions minister Steve Webb are working on plans to provide UK pensioners with a “decent” £140 per week government basic pension by the next general election which will be in 2015. At the moment, the basic single person’s pension is just £97.65 and for a couple is £156.15 Currently pensioners can undergo a series of means tests to provide them with a top-up but this is a complicated and expensive system to administer and the new scheme is hoped to be cheaper to run with the funding coming from the reduced amount of money being ploughed into

bureaucracy - announced last week. The big boost in payouts will be for women who opted out of the system to bring up children, thereby spending years away from paid work, and national insurance contributions. Business Secretary Vince Cable said on Monday that it was a Liberal Democrat idea that had been developed by the party over several years in opposition. "This is a big idea that my colleague, the pensions minister Steve Webb, has been working on and indeed, we worked on it for years in opposition," Mr Cable told BBC Radio 4's Today programme."

Royal friend dies in crash A friend and fellow polo player of the Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry has died with two other people after an Augusta helicopter they were travelling in crashed in the Mourne Mountains in County Down, Northern Ireland. The helicopter was apparently returning to England after a shooting trip to Ireland over the weekend. The rescue services were alerted by a witness seeing a helicopter in difficulties.

Charles Stisted, 47, was the Chief Executive Officer of the Guards Polo Club in Windsor. A spokesman for Clarence House told Sky News: "The Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and Prince Harry are all shocked and deeply saddened by this terrible tragedy. "Their Royal Highnesses' thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed at this dreadful time."

New Blakelock appeal A new appeal for witnesses was launched on Monday to try and find those responsible for the killing of PC Keith Blakelock some 25 years ago.

A new re-construction of the events took place in the hope of jogging memories of the incident.

The TUC have suggested a new bank holiday be introduced on the last Monday in October next year to encourage people to help in community schemes.

At the moment there is a four month gap between the UK's August and Christmas bank holidays and the new one would coincide with schools’ half term holidays.

General Secretary Brendan Barber said: "One of the best things about our national character is the extent to which people are willing to help each other. People in the UK already have a solid record of getting involved in voluntary and community work, but there is still a great potential for more people to join in. A new bank holiday with a theme of encouraging people to

Unlucky 13 for the UK Britain has ended up in thirteenth place in the Prosperity Index, an international survey of wealth and happiness over 110 countries compiled by the Legatum Institute, a think tank based in London. It states that Britain has failed to make the top ten mainly due to education, national security and healthcare. Norway, Denmark and Finland were the top three while Ireland was 10th, Iceland 11th and the UK was followed by Austria then Germany. The loss of public confidence in the UK's banking institutions and worries about job losses are undermining Britain's performance as a whole although low inflation and high income capital per worker had increased its place within the survey. It also stated that key areas of the UK economy were found to be sound. Of the 110 countries covered by the survey, Britain ranks 101st on public confidence in financial institutions, 98th on optimism about job prospects and 93rd on expectations of future economic performance - the kind of ratings usually found in the world's poorest countries, the Legatum Institute said.

Rise in motor sales The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said last week that production was up by a massive 35% for the year to date, with output of commercial vehicles rising by almost 17%. September alone saw a rise of 6.6% across the industry from the previous month. On top of the output growth, there will be an increase of around 50% for apprenticeships within the industry although the Government's Train to Gain scheme will be

scrapped. Support for research and developement of low carbon vehicles should add to the upward trend of the UK motoring industry. However, Inchcape, the multinational car dealer, has said that it intend to scrap some 500 jobs across Greece, Belgium, Singapore as well as the UK.

A funny ending? Firemen to strike Comedy duo Lenny Henry and Dawn French were granted a “quickie” divorce on the grounds of his “unreasonable behaviour” after 25 years of marriage.

Neither attended the court and Mr Henry agreed to pay the costs of the proceedings. They have an adopted daughter, Billie, and remain friends.

UK firemen are set to go on strike on what is one of their busiest days of the year. The Fire Service have said they will strike on November 5th, Bonfire Night, if their demands for

stopping changes to their contracts of employment are not met. The decision to strike at that particular time has been condemned across the board and talks continue to try and stop it.

take an active role in their communities would be the perfect way to bring the country together. If another 1 in 10 people do just 5 hours of volunteer service a year it could be worth £500 million and give those people extra employment-related skills.” However, it was felt by some observers that hardworking people would

relish the extra day off work to be with their families and it was suggested that a better scheme would be to encourage those on the dole and benefits to give one day a week to volunteering and perhaps get extra employmentrelated skills and get off the dole – thereby saving the country a rather larger fortune.

Youth dies after London gang street shooting The shooting of two youths, resulting in the death of 16-year-old Samuel Adelagun, and serious abdomen wounds for a 15-year-old now in a stable condition in hospital, during the early hours of Saturday morning in Plaistow, London, has sparked a manhunt for the assailants, described as wearing black clothing and balaclavas. After being shot, the pair ran to a nearby house and banged on the door to be let in. Adelagun died soon after. Police confirmed that two gunmen had fired shots at a group of four youths, at which time the group scattered. The other two met back on Chesterton Road, Plaistow later when they called the police. A police spokesman for the Met's Trident unit, which tackles gun related crime within the black community, said that both

victims were known to the police and it was believed that the attack was gang related. He added: "Shooting incidents are still rather rare in London. We are working with the community and asking the community to help us to come together to solve this." Despite protests and marches by the families, and particularly the mothers, of members of these gangs the killings keep happening on the streets of UK towns. Flowers, including seven bunches of white roses, have been laid at the foot of the police cordon taping off the scene. One tribute read: "To Sammy, one of the realist young bucks. Gone but never forgotten. 100 % love. Liam." Meantime a female friend at the scene said: "He was just a lovely guy, he had amazing dimples and a smile that would make you melt."

Teens arrested on suspicion of girl murder A post-mortem is to take place on 15-year-old Rebecca Aylward of Aberkenfig, South Wales after her body was found on Sunday morning near a bus stop on the outskirts of the village. South Wales police would not comment on how the girl was thought to have died but released information stating that two 15-year-old boys had been arrested in connection with the incident. The police were

given extended time for interviewing the boys on Tuesday. She was last seen just after mid-day on Saturday after being dropped off by relatives to visit a friend. Her mother reported her missing when she failed to return home on Saturday evening. Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen Rebecca to come forward.

Children freezing at work A joint investigation has been launched between West Mercia Police and the Gangmaster Licensing Authority in Worcestershire after seven children – five boys and two girls aged between 9 and 15 years old - were discovered working in a field in the Kempsey area picking spring onions in near freezing conditions last week. It was reported that some were with their parents whilst others appeared to be on their own. Six of the children have been taken into police protection. Some fifty Rumanian workers, including a number of children, were found to be working on the farm where no licenced gangmaster could be found. Indian workers were also on the premises but were under the control of a licenced gangmaster. A GLA spokesman said: “The workers and children were not dressed adequately to protect themselves from the cold conditions.”

Tough new dress code planned The mayor of the seaside city of Castellammare di Stabia, luigi Bobbio, is planning a tough new dress code which would effectively outlaw everything from miniskirts to low-cut jeans to improve what he calls standards of public decency. offenders would face fines of between €25 and €500. Castellammare di Stabia is the latest city to make use of the extra powers handed down by prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's government to mayors, in the effort to fight crime and confront anti social behaviour.

First black mayor elected a doctor born in Ghana has been elected the first black mayor of the coastal town of Piran in Slovenia. Peter Bossman came to the country in the 1980s, when it was still part of the former Yugoslavia, to study medicine. The 54-year-old had intended to return home after his studies, but changed his mind after marrying a fellow doctor of Croatian origin. He said people no longer noticed his colour and his election showed the country’s "high level of democracy". IndIa

New bug species found in amber More than 700 new species of ancient insect have been discovered in 50-million-year-old amber found in lignite mines in the Cambay Shale of the Indian state of Gujarat. The discoveries come from some 150kg of amber produced by an ancient rainforest in India. Scientists said that many insects are related to species from far-away corners of the world which means that, despite millions of years in isolation in the ocean, the region was a lot more biologically diverse than previously believed.

More women Iranians come forward going nuclear Former cab driver John Warboys, 53, who was jailed in April indefinitely after being linked to more than 85 counts of drugging and sexually assaulting women, could now be linked to more than 100 different crimes. Scotland Yard said that a number of women have come forward since the trial with fresh information which could make him the UK's most prolific sex attacker. The police added that they believe there may still be many more who have not come forward to lodge a complaint. Many of his victims were women drinking in trendy London nightspots. He would invite the women to “celebrate” with him

following an alleged lottery win that he would back up with a carrier bag stuffed full of cash. He would then spike their drinks and once they were incapacitated, assault them in the back of his vehicle. Warboys was told that he would have to spend a minimum of eight years in prison and would not be eligible for parole until officials said that he was no longer a threat to women.

Iranian TV announced on Tuesday afternoon that the country had started to load fuel into the core of the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant. It will take 2 to 3 months to load 40 - 50% of the fuel in the reactor. The facility, in the south of the country, was opened in August after 35 years of delays but it is expected to start producing electricity by early 2011. Iran’s nuclear programme has been a source of much friction between Tehran and the West as the Islamic Republic is suspected of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of providing energy for the country.

Cruise ship visits exceed expectations More than half a million visitors from cruise ships visited Malaga in the first nine months of this year, up from 488,000 for the whole of last year. The director of Malaga port, Sebastian Camps, said the port authorities had not expected to pass the half million mark until 2012. He said another 78 cruise ships were

scheduled to call in at Malaga before the end of the year which would bring the number of visitors to an estimated 680,000. Sr Camps said the port authorities were

already revising the forecast of one million visitors by 2015. He was speaking at a party given for the arrival of cruise ship passenger number 503,975 last week. The

cruise ships have made an important contribution to a record rise of 20% in the number of tourists visiting the provincial capital in September.

Big fine for motorists on closed road Unwary motorists using the Fuengirola road from Alhaurin el Grande (A-7053) last week faced hefty fines as they were stopped by Guardia Civil officers at a road block by the Valtocado turn-off. The road has been closed for nearly two years and frustrated commuters have been forced to use the Mijas route. Only people with official passes on display are allowed access. Now much of the work has been finished - barring 500 metres - and drivers had been unofficially using the road after 7 pm. But a road worker was injured after being hit by a vehicle and the Guardia

Civil are now stopping motorists and fining them for driving along a “carretera de obras”. Speculation is growing that the road may be finished by Christmas, otherwise the company carrying out the work will face a financial penalty from the Junta de Andalucia. The Guardia Civil has also been stepping up its activity on the Marbella road at the unfinished roundabout near La Trocha in Coin. Motorists are being handed a €200 fine for using the prohibited left turn onto the road from the Cartama direction.

Wet long weekend holiday forecast

Marbella leads in business closures Nearly 270 self-employed people have been forced to close their businesses in Marbella so far this year, according to the Association of Selfemployed Workers of Andalucia (ATA). Deputy chairman Rafael Amor told

reporters that the figure represented a drop of 2.7%, the biggest one for towns of more than 40,000 residents along the Costa del sol. He criticised the Junta de Andalucia’s employment councillor, Manuel Recio, who said recently that the

self-employed have suffered less than anyone else from the current economic crisis. He said that in the month of October alone more than 1,100 self-employed people in Andalucia had joined the dole queues.

As All Saints Day falls on Sunday, Monday the 2nd is a holiday and the weathermen say it might be better to choose indoor recreational activities. They said the showers will start on Friday afternoon, Saturday will start out fine but the clouds will gather later on and Sunday will end with rain. Temperatures will drop by 4 to 5 degrees on average.

More families slide into poverty Latest figures show that many average families of four in Malaga city have less than €475 a month to cover rent, food and utilities and that the members of at least 4,000 households subsist on €16 a day each. Malaga City Hall's social wellbeing councillor Maria Victoria Romero said they formed

part of the 30% of Andalucia's total population who live below the poverty threshold and represent 60% of the 6,600 households that have had to apply to community services for help in the past year. She said that was an increase of 140% over last year.

New works for Picasso Museum The Picasso Museum celebrated the 129th anniversary of the painter’s birth on Monday by announcing the addition of 43 new works to its collection - on loan from the Almine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso Art Foundation (FABA) for a period of 15 years. This brings the collection of works by Malaga’s most famous son to 276, which are the visible evidence of the €108 million invested by the Junta de Andalucia

in the museum since it was inaugurated in 2003. Only 36 of the newly acquired works will go on show because of lack of space.

Some 40 of them, which were the only source of water in the olden days, still flow under Malaga city. The searches were done in response to an appeal by the Andalucian Water Agency, the University of Granada and the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain two years

A spokesman for the complex's maintenance

Mediterranean real estate expo sales up

Monda’s new Foreigners Dept takes off

Sixty six visitors to last weekend's 7th Mediterranean Property Expo (SIMed) at the Palacio de Ferias in Malaga decided to buy property, upping this year's sale by 10% over last year.

Since it opened on October 18th in the town's public library, Monda's Foreigners Department has had a steady increase in the number of visitors seeking information from a volunteer staff who speak English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch and Flemish.

Companies who took part estimate that the real number of sales may double or triple in the near future after visitors decide to go for the many bargains on offer. More than 6,600 visitors handed over an average of

200 forms with their contact data to each of the different exhibitors. Since it began seven years ago, SIMed has become a key tool for companies and professionals involved in property sales.

Supermarket own brand sales rising Shoppers in Malaga province are increasingly opting for supermarkets’ own brands to stretch their money further in these times of crisis. A survey has shown that nearly 45% of the food products and cleaning materials sold were the supermarkets’ own brands. This is 5% over the national average and nearly 10% higher than when the current economic crisis began to bite three years ago. A spokesman for the polling

company, SymphonyIRI, said the percentage was even higher in poorer provinces like Huelva or Cordoba. He added that other surveys by the company showed that people living in the more well-off areas of Spain such as Madrid and Barcelona still preferred brand name products.

Many of them just dropped by to say hello and good luck while others were delighted to find that use of the library's computers is

free. The volunteer staff are at the library on Monday mornings from 10 am to 2 pm. One of the department's first initiatives is to provide subsidised lessons in conversational Spanish to local residents to help them to integrate into village life, in collaboration with Monda Town Hall. Further details about the service can be obtained from Source:

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Hats off to the Spaniards

The bigger picture



he more opinion poll results I read, the more I realise that the average men and women in the street here have a lot more political savvy than the people they elected to govern them. It could be that the seemingly neverending economic crisis has sharpened their minds and removed the veils from their eyes but they are increasingly less inclined to swallow empty promises and vain hopes.


t didn't taken them long – about 24 hours – to see through a major Cabinet reshuffle which – according to prime minister Zapatero – will create jobs and get us all out of this economic crisis. Appointing a new labour minister won't get results if you don't give him the tools to do the job – like investing in research and development, which would create jobs in the long run – instead of dreaming up more subsidies to help people on the dole which will just add to the country's debt.


hile the newspapers are analysing the strengths of the new Cabinet and filling page after page with bios of the old and new ministers, the opposition is getting ready for a renewed onslaught in which insults, omissions and outright lies will be the main weapons. Once again the Socialist party is intent on linking the Partido Popular with the Civil War and the Franco regime and the terms “ultra derecha (far right)” and “fascismo” are being bandied about, as they were in the lead-up to the last election.


pposition leader Mariano Rajoy has not risen to the bait. He has asked his people to forget insults and concentrate on the issues that really worry people – like unemployment. Unfortunately one PP man, the mayor of Valladolid, Javier Leon de la Riva, had already opened his mouth and put his foot in it. His comment about the appointment of Leire Pajin as health minister, that she would probably distribute condoms left and right to the country's youth, caused an uproar in the Socialists' ranks, giving them the perfect ammunition to fire at the PP. His immediate apology was even worse. After saying he regretted having insulted the new minister, he then added: But she still looks to me like a character in a cartoon. Some apology!


r Rubalcaba was not slow in using such wonderful ammunition from such a source – and accused the PP of being “genetically machista”. Now, a man can be machista for genetic reasons – by simply having the male genes – but parties don't have have genes. Whatever, it sounded good. The fact is that if there is one person even more adept than Zapatero at using lots of words to say nothing much it's Rubalcaba. He's very sound when he talks about the Basque terrorist group ETA, but his hard-line

stance there is undermined by rumours that Zapatero wants to restart talks with the group in order to achieve his dearest wish – bringing ETA in from the cold.


nd many people haven't forgotten that it was Rubalcaba who tried – and failed – to cover up the existence of GAL, the anti-terrorist death squads which emerged – in secret – a year after the Socialist government of Felipe Gonzalez came to power, when killings by the Basque terrorist group ETA were at their height. Made up of members of the security forces and hired assassins and with the mission to destabilise ETA in its "safe havens" across the border in France, GAL (Anti-terrorist Liberation Groups) was responsible for 28 murders between 1983 and 1987. The Gonzalez government's involvement in this shadowy armed group was the subject of a judicial inquiry and a Supreme Court trial which convicted two senior government ministers - former interior minister Jose Barrionuevo and his security chief – and sent them to jail for ten years. Perhaps the Spanish people would have overlooked the government's involvement – except that more than a third of the people killed by the GAL death squads had no connection to ETA.


erhaps Mariano Rajoy should trot out the squeaky clean Socialists relationship with GAL every time they thrown the Iran war in his face. But the past is the past and Rajoy's instructions to concentrate on issues not insults will win him more votes in the end, while the Socialists' penchant for insulting everyone who doesn't agree with them will lose them votes.


o it looks as if the the March 2012 election campaign has already begun. Zapatero and his ministers were grinning like Cheshire cats over the weekend, convinced the Cabinet reshuffle will save their skins. But it will be interesting to see if those grins survive the Catalan regional election in a month's time, which the main opposition party there, Convergencia y Union, is tipped to win. However, anything could happened between now and then – a month is a devil of a long time in politics.

ast week’s Cabinet shake-up was prime minister Zapatero’s biggest political move since he was first elected in 2004. The strategy was designed to shore up his government and develop a commanding presence with Socialist heavyweights taking the top ministries, including a fresh face to help try to smooth things over with the trade unions. But besides pinning his hopes, as we were told, on people who can communicate better in getting his austerity and economic messages across, Zapatero is focusing on a bigger goal – one that will guarantee the Socialists will win a third term and one that could give his administration historical perspective. He is striving to put an end to ETA once and for all.


he person to tackle this difficult chore is none other than his new deputy prime minister Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba. The 59-year-old Cantabria native has been the government’s point man in the fight against terrorism since taking over the reins at Interior in 2006. Coordinating the battle with French law enforcement, Rubalcaba oversaw a series of stunning blows on ETA, including arrests of the organisation’s military chiefs and their subsequent successors in 2008-2009. Thanks to an agreement penned in January 2008 with the French, Spanish agents are permitted to work in the south of France, where ETA hotbeds are located. For 14 years, he has served as the Socialist Party’s number one advisor in anti-terrorism matters. He represented the Zapatero government in 2006 during the initial peace talks in Switzerland, which ended with devastation when an ETA commando unit later that year set off a car bomb at a parking garage at Madrid ’s Barajas International Airport ’s newest terminal, killing two Ecuadorian nationals.


ut now the time is ripe for Zapatero. ETA is being pressured by its traditional supporters on the outside, members of the banned Basque radical “abertzale” parties, including Batasuna, who want the terrorists to call a permanent ceasefire so that they can be allowed to run in the next municipal elections. It is a race against time. But the government says it isn’t enough; it wants Batasuna and other radical left nationalists to demand that ETA lay down its weapons. The organisation is also seeing pressure stepped up from once sympathetic international observers, including South African lawyer Brian Currin, who are urging the terrorist group to call a fully verifiable ceasefire. The organisation has said that it would consider whether to discuss the offer.


ith the Socialists, ETA has a better chance of winning much more guarantees than if they were to negotiate with a hard-line

Popular Party (PP) government. During Prime Minister José Mariá Aznar’s 19962004 government, it appeared that no-one in the PP administration was willing to negotiate. Aznar himself was the target of an assassination attempt in 1995 when he was opposition leader. Since the prior ceasefire that ended in 1999, ETA has killed more than 50 civilians and government officials. From its inception in 1959, the group has been responsible for more than 850 murders.


inning a peace pact is no doubt Zapatero’s biggest unannounced goal – unannounced because the Socialist government doesn't want to get burned like it did in 2006. But there are other missions for the rest of this new Cabinet. His new foreign minister Trinidad Jiménez – fresh from her loss in the Madrid regional premier primary – has to solve the diplomatic mess with Venezuela, which refuses to hand over wanted ETA suspect José Arturo Cubillas Fontán. Cubillas has the protection of the Hugo Chávez government, which according to some press reports coming from Caracas , is planning to allow him to move to Cuba if the pressure gets all too intense on all sides. But there are also several ETA suspects in the Caribbean island that the High Court also wants, and Jiménez’s push on Monday in Luxembourg for a more lenient European Union policy toward Cuba could be Madrid ’s bargaining chip. Terrorists in exchange for better treatment.


t the labour ministry Valeriano Gómez, another veteran negotiator, takes over from Celestino Corbacho who, after pretty much losing all respect from the unions, was pushed to Catalonia where his name will appear on the Socialist election slate in the upcoming regional race. A former member of the UGT technical committee and previously an analyst at the ministry, Gómez has gained the trust of the workers organisations. Although the negotiations over labour reform broke down leaving the Socialists to seal its own version in Parliament, Zapatero has said he is willing to reopen talks with labour and big business to finetune the package as well as discuss pension reform. Gómez will be the man heading up that job.


his will be Zapatero’s last opportunity to rescue his government. He may think he has all the right people in place, but it will be up to this new team to see whether they can convince the public that they really have it in their hearts to bring this country forward.

G Dolores Scott I do enjoy your paper and its constant improvement in appearance and content, although I try to avoid being annoyed by Muriel Pilkington's biased, partisan view of politics, by just not reading her. Unfortunately for me, you have been pairing her column with that of the erudite Sr. Martin Delfin of El Pais, who writes such an excellent informative column clearly showing the difference between reporting and opinion while doing so. I say unfortunately - because the eye tends to stray over to the annoying lady. Before I could rescue it while reading your Wednesday October 13th edition I spotted Ms. Pilkington's grossly inaccurate statement viz: " the March 2004 election, which was tipped in their favour by the current Interior Minister, Martin Perez -Rubalcaba, who skilfully manipulated the Madrid train bombings to bring out the anti-war faction." In indisputable fact, what happened on that dreadful morning took place in a country which had been not

Samantha Ives I only ever wanted a job! 4 years of looking for a job left me scammed, floored and owing the bank 5000 euros. Multi talented and qualified, I started job hunting 4 years ago here in Spain where I already made and designed my own unique candles, greetings cards and painted portraits. There was no call for this type of skill so I decided to do something I enjoy. A self taught musician, I played the drums for 5 years and applied to join a band, but advert after advert was a let down - even having the phone put down on me when they heard I was a girl. I then went on to make all my own catering products– cakes pastries, buffets and birthday cakes, again this went nowhere, and after continuously applying for jobs in newspapers, never got as far as an interview.


just manipulated but forced by its ambitious Prime Minister Sr. Jose Maria Alfredo Aznar Lopez (who apparently had post government ambitions in America) and his Partido Popular, into an illegal and ultimately fruitless and world damaging war in Iraq alongside the United States of America and Great Britain despite more than 75% of public opinion being totally against it. (Hence Sr. Zapatero's dedication to fulfil his campaign promise of withdrawing our troops as soon as his party took power rather than as Ms. Pilkington insultingly suggest simply because he had nothing better to do). The country was also deeply dissatisfied with its then right wing government for their disgraceful behaviour in shaming the country over the maritime oil leaks they had tried to foist onto Portugal when the proper and safer behaviour should have been to tow the damaged vessel into Spanish port. Within minutes of the bombs exploding in Madrid in such a manner that practically the entire country knew they could only identify with Al

Quaeda since ETA has a well known practice of detonating in the same manner as the IRA (having been coached by them)......almost every house in the country was flooded with leaflets exhorting us to rush to our city squares and wave the accompanying banners denouncing ETA. Such a shameless insult to the nation's intelligence brought the rousing response of all fairminded who routed the Partido Popular from their arrogant posture by throwing them out of government even though their financial policies seemed to be acceptable. Money is not everything Ms. Pilkington, I was never so proud of my adopted country as when that event took place three days after the bombing during which time - Ms. Pilkington seems to have forgotten - a moratorium was issued on campaigning. Ms. Pilkington's tirades are more appropriate to coffee clutch armchair critics than to serious political discourse. Editor says: Ah! Our Muriel always stirs things up but we get many more letters agreeing with her than we do disagreeing.

After all this I was on the edge and decided to pack my bags and go on back to England, but before I did, I saw a job advert in a local newspaper for a payment rep here in Spain. I e-mailed and got the job straight away. After several emails I received 2 cheques to my address which I had to deposit into my bank account, I did this obviously thinking it was in my job description, then had to forward on the money to their offices in Nigeria. Five days later the bank called me saying I was

Last flight of Discovery If all goes according to plan then the Space Shuttle Discovery will make its final flight on Monday November 1st. The task for the astronauts - five men and one woman - will be to deliver two more units to the International Space Station (ISS) and to test out a brand new ‘Robonaut’. The Robonaut is a self contained robot helper that looks a lot like Star Wars C3P0. It will help the astronauts when they go out of the Space Station on their spacewalks. The idea behind the Robonaut series of robots is to have a humanoid machine work alongside astronauts. Its shape and dexterity are designed so that Robonaut can use space tools and work in similar environments to suited astronauts. Discovery was the third space shuttle to be launched back in 1984 and is now the oldest of the three remaining shuttles. The two older shuttles Challenger and Columbia were destroyed in dreadful accidents in 1986 and 2003 killing all 14 astronauts on board.

Coin So, tired, I decided to do something that I always wanted to do and what I thought would be a fantastic job opportunity for me, I studied 8 long months and paid 100 $ for a Cabin Crew training course. I passed with a great score of 95% only to find a recent flight led me to hospital with an incurable sinus problem, which makes me very sick while flying.


being prosecuted for fraud as the cheques were fake and the company was non-existent. I have since looked into it but it was so cleverly done. After several trips to the police I was told the bank was demanding the amount of money on the cheques back - but I no longer had the money as it had already been sent to Nigeria. I had to find a solicitor to help me. I suffered panic attacks, fainting, sickness and other illnesses. But the fact is that, in the end, I had to pay 5000 euros to the bank or I would have been prosecuted and possibly sent to prison. After paying the bank I am still now jobless and am currently studying for a new career in journalism and hope to make my first big break when I visit the Formula 1 paddock at this year’s winter testing.

This will be the 133rd launch of a space shuttle since the first flight of Columbia on April 12th 1981 and it is the 39th flight of Discovery. There was an earlier space shuttle called Enterprise (named after the Star Trek Enterprise) that flew in 1977 but this was only a test flight and never actually went into space. The space shuttles have been the work horse for NASA and without their help the International Space Station would never had been built and the giant Hubble Space telescope could not have been sent into space, but now they have come to retirement age and are no longer needed. There will be one final flight by one of the remaining shuttles: Endeavour will fly in February 2011 but the shuttle Atlantis will be kept on standby to act as a rescue mission should anything go wrong with either Discovery or Endeavour. After that they will all be sold off. It will be left to the Russians to ferry the crews back and forth from the Space Station from then on in their

much cheaper Soyuz rockets. While NASA turns its sights on returning to the Moon around 2019, 50 years since their first trip in Apollo 11. You will be able to see the ISS tonight (Wednesday October 27th) - if you look toward the south west at 20.10 you will see it looking like a very bright star getting brighter as it passes almost directly overhead. You’ll have to be quick though, as it takes only 5 minutes to cross the sky travelling at 17,000mph. Don’t forget to wave at the seven astronauts on board!

Fuengirola Astronomy Society The next meeting of the astronomy society will be tomorrow (Thursday 29th) at 8.00pm. We are at a new venue now, which is the Danish Tennis club just past the Peugeot dealer on the Fuengirola to Mijas road km 2.2 at Casa Danesa urbanization Haza del Algarrobo. I will be giving an illustrated talk on the winter constellations. Admission is only €2.50 and the prize in this month’s raffle is the Brian Cox book ‘Wonders of the Solar System’.

If you missed TAPAS’s latest production of the “Old Time Music Hall” then you certainly missed out on an excellent evening of musical variety. Nearly 250 people thoroughly enjoyed the 20 acts, ranging from full chorus, solo singers, monologues, dialogues and a magician to the full blown verbosity of the Master of Ceremonies. With an atmosphere similar to that of an intimate dining room the audience were able to enjoy the entertainment seated at group booked tables, with waiter service, which Los Arcos, the new home of TAPAS, is able to offer.

The sheer professionalism of the performers, the grandeur of their costumes, stage backdrops, lighting and props make it all difficult to believe that TAPAS are comprised entirely of amateurs working to a very high standard. The musical entertainment was interspersed with bouts of light hearted comedy acts which included John and Maggie Parker together with Jenny Storey performing a well crafted and funny version of the “Sand Dance” that had the audience howling. The musical compositions, arranged by

musical director Jane Busby, included many of the old stalwarts of Music Hall tradition and were a delight to listen to. Judging by the laughter, applause and audience participation TAPAS again offered an evening of wonderful entertainment. TAPAS are holding a Christmas Fayre at Los Arcos on Saturday November 13th and the next production, “Who Killed the Director?”, a Murder Mystery evening will be on Saturday November 20th.

New Ladies at A bumper fundraiser Lunch Club Inland Mums has now grown up! Ladies living here in Spain with school aged children frequently find it difficult to meet like-minded people. The Ladies That Lunch club recognises that the gap between dropping the kids off at school and picking them up again can be a lonely and boring time, so the club is now aiming at filling that time by inviting mums to get together, without the kids, to relax together maybe for coffee or even lunch, every second Thursday morning. The first meeting is on Thursday November 4th at half past ten for coffee. You can all order and pay for

what you want so you're not looking at a club that could cost you loads of money at a time when money is tight. Some meetings will be just a coffee morning, and some could be a lunch somewhere but whatever you're doing you can be assured of meeting new friends, getting support and help in fitting in in your new community, with people who will have likeminded interests and lifestyles. So call Emma Webber now on 608 408 771 for more information about next week’s meeting and start making new friends.

Film festival ends with gala The 5th Edition of the Marbella International Film Festival ended Sunday, October 17th after a gala ball and awards ceremony attended by over 100 international filmmakers and guests. The winners were: 24 Hour Challenge "Wena, Wena, Wena" produced by James Gomez of Marbella; Best Animation - Out on a Limb, by Daisy Yu-Chuan Lin. Taiwan - USA; Best Short Short - Happy Life by Minos Nikolakakis, Greece; Best Documentary Absent by Justin Hunt, USA; Best Short - Awaiting Her by James Joint, Honduras; Best Feature - Do Elephants Pray? by Paul Hills, UK.

The festival started with the 24 hour film challenge on Friday, October 15th. That evening a party was hosted for over 250 invited guests who were greeted by young girls wearing flamenco dresses. Red carnations were given to all and the spirit of the feria pervaded the party. After festival parties were also held at various venues during the weekend. In competition were 50 films from all over the world. The partipants all commented on the beauty of the town of Marbella and the weather and many have expressed intentions to return here for their future film projects. Next year’s dates will be October 14th, 15th and 16th 2011.

The 3rd annual Joint Charity Dog Show in Alhaurin El Grande was a huge success, with more than 70 dogs and their owners competing in 13 classes on a sunny October day - and the event was so successful more than €1,700 euros was raised, to be split between organisers CHAIN (Charity for Animals in Need) and ARCH (Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses).

Classes ranged from the Dog With the Waggiest Tail to The Best Rescued Dog Looking for a Home. The Egg and Spoon race was hotly contested and the Best in Show was won by Zac, a beautiful German Shepherd puppy, with the Reserve Best in Show awarded to Luna, a sweet little dog who had been abandoned with S.O.S. 5 days earlier.

Calendar girls do it this year in Villanueva

How can they do this?

The ladies of Villanueva de la Concepcion have come up with a novel idea for raising money toward the town's next feria – they are launching a “Calendar Girls” style calendar for 2011, which will be launched at a ceremony in the town next Wednesday November 3rd at 5pm in the town hall. The six friends, aged from 46 to 64 years, and all from the UK or Holland, decided almost a year ago that they wanted to find some way of raising funds for their adopted village. With support from the town's innovative mayor plus a local photographer and printer the girls met regularly to practice posing with various props to hide certain attributes!

In the interval there was an exhibition by Javier of “Attack and Protection” with his German Shepherd dogs and Sabrina once again demonstrated her skills as a dog trainer. A bouncy castle, stalls, barbecue, candy floss and cream teas made it a memorable day for all


One of the saddest tasks faced by volunteers in the costa's animal refuges is being asked to rehome dogs who have been part of a family, microchipped, but cruelly abandoned when their owners leave Spain for the UK. This little dog was found forlornly wandering the streets of Torreblanca and she is a very affectionate, sweet natured girl. She is being fostered by the lady who found her, gets on well with the three other dogs in the house and has been called Smiley because of her charming nature. But she is II years old and SOS volunteers are desperate to find her a

loving home because it would be unkind to make her spend the rest of her life in a refuge.

If you can find a place for her in your heart please telephone Therese on 653 257 875.

Captain of almeria

EpisodE 3 - part 1

î&#x20AC;&#x201A;e Consequences


What are the Countâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals for Rodrigo going to be? Read on for part one of Episode 3 The heat of the morning was starting to rise as Rodrigo walked with Count Alonso across the estate lawn towards the mansion house. He was still in shirtsleeves after the duel and both men sipped at glasses of brandy as they conversed. The Count looked cool, elegant, even though dressed in his heavy court jacket, whereas Rodrigo was somewhat dishevelled, his shirt stained with sweat and blood from the duel. Rodrigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendant Nicholas followed at a short distance, remaining politely out of earshot of the two as they talked. Nicholas was worried for his captain since the Count was a powerful man and more deadly in some ways than a sword blade could ever be. He knew the duel would have consequences for Rodrigo, who had wounded the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Carlos over

a matter of honour, and he feared that the Captain would now have to pay for this and his other indiscretions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carlos will be unrelenting in seeking satisfaction, Rodrigo, and I do not refer just to the field of honour,â&#x20AC;? stated the Count, â&#x20AC;&#x153;he will use any means to discredit you and when his father, the Governor, hears of the duel â&#x20AC;ŚIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid that his influence will hasten your downfall.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realise this, Count Alonso, but I did not ask for this duel, it is a matter between the Governor and me â&#x20AC;Śhe pocketed the prize money from the ships that my crew and I seized â&#x20AC;Śmy men served well and fought hard and deserve their reward. I am not concerned for myself,â&#x20AC;? explained Rodrigo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I




grievance, Rodrigo â&#x20AC;Śbut did you have to bed the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife?â&#x20AC;? he asked. They climbed the steps to the wide paved veranda of the mansion. A mixture of frustration and anger had hardened the Countâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. Rodrigo turned to look at the face of this man whose expression and questioning eyes demanded an answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was unplanned â&#x20AC;Śa lapse on my part, I must admit Sir â&#x20AC;Śit just happened â&#x20AC;Ś Isabella is like a flame.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah! Love,â&#x20AC;? chuckled the Count, his expression softening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she is the flame then you must be the poor moth, Rodrigo â&#x20AC;Śand I am afraid that you will have to suffer the burns of your infatuation. The boy dotes on her, even though she is his stepmother and the old man â&#x20AC;Śwell â&#x20AC;Śsome men idolise women, my dear Rodrigo, raising them on pedestals â&#x20AC;Śfor others

they are mere possessions â&#x20AC;Śa manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for a woman comes in many forms, mostly as a symbol of what they value and not necessarily dependant on any mutual feelings.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? started Rodrigo, but the Count raised his hand to stop any further protest.

Both men were quiet for a short time as they sipped their brandy; watching as the sun rose over the sea, its heat burning off the morningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mist. There were a few murmurs of noise from the large house as the staff went about their duties for the waking household. They could hear Carlosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s groans emanating from the open French doors as the Doctor bandaged his wound. Nicholas stood quietly to one side of the men. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid that you will have to return to Spain, Captain,â&#x20AC;? said the Count finally, as he turned to face Rodrigo again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But my ship, my men

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know, my dear Rodrigo; I will take up your grievance and accept my word that they will be paid â&#x20AC;Śbut I cannot help you â&#x20AC;Ś protect you, here. I have estates outside Cordoba and know of an open commission on the coast near Almeria. It may not be to the liking of a seaman like yourself â&#x20AC;Śbut I think that you need to - how shall we say - adopt a low profile - to disappear for a short while.â&#x20AC;?

the tables on the veranda and eased his body into a chair. He suddenly felt very tired as he placed his empty glass on the table. He closed his eyes to enjoy the small relief of the slight breeze from the sea. He smelt the ocean; his mind wandered, he thought of Isabella.

e gems of unspoilt Spain now in focus Written by Andrea MacLean

- as battle commences


t has been dubbed the new Battle of Trafalgar and if nothing else, plans by the Junta de Andalucia and property developers to build a huge hotel on the Costa de la Luz will spotlight an area of Spain beloved by Spaniards and known only to discerning Britons prepared to leave behind the busy Costa del Sol and head west.


nvironmentalists, and those desperate to support any attempt to prevent the despoiling of one of the last unspoilt stretches of Spanish coastline, are arguing that a hotel for nearly 1,300 people, planned for the sleepy seaside village of El Palmar, is the sort of thing that could actually drive visitors away. Now, there are hotels along this stretch of coast and there are plenty of reasons to visit this beautiful part of the

country,but that is part of the rub. In the summer you need to book smartish to be sure to find somewhere to stay, as masses of Sevillanos head to the area for their summer holidays.


ith unemployment in the Cadiz area running at 30 per cent, there are those who feel that there is a strong economic argument for building the hotel - it will provide much needed jobs, continue to stimulate a growth in tourism and help enrich the local economy. The 600 inhabitants of El Palmar are not all connected to mains water and electricity, so there are compelling reasons for many of them to back the project. On the other hand, concerns have been raised in the European Parliament over whether the project complies with sewage and water rules.

And the Salvar El Palmar campaigners say that the sprawl of overdevelopment on the Costa del Sol should act as a red flag of warning.


he village is just a few kilometres west of Cabo de Trafalgar - the scene in 1805 of the great sea battle in which Admiral Nelson lost his life. And now the scene is set for a new battle. But just what is in the region that suggests such a huge hotel would fill an important gap in the market? You have to make a real effort to visit this area of outstanding natural beauty and there is every reason to want to visit now, outside the busy summer months. This week we look at one of the nearby towns that is an important draw for those tourists who like their slices of Spain to be rich with history and architectural beauty.


he hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera is less than 10 kilometres from the beaches at El Palmar and Trafalgar Bay, and set high above the steep gorge of the Barbate river, 200 metres above the surrounding countryside. It's a maze of perfectly preserved cobbled streets, with brilliantly white houses that glisten in the sun and the renowned travel writer Jan Morris described it as "perhaps Spain's most spectacular village".


t its heart is a medieval quarter but unlike some other towns and villages, a tight grip was kept on the development in the newer part of the town, so it is fully in keeping with its historical and architectural heritage. The town is dominated by its Moorish castle and Gothic church, built on the

site of a mosque. Vejer began as a fortress town held by the Phoenicians, and later the Romans, before it spent 5 centuries under Moorish rule, until it was captured by King Ferdinand of Castille in 1248. That is when it became a border town against the Moors and de la Frontera was added to its name. Traditionally, the townswomen wore long, dark cloaks that covered their faces, called cobijades, but the costumes nowadays are only worn for fiestas.


he Plaza de España must be high on the list of prettiest village squares in Spain and from here, walk through the Arco de la Villa into the old town, and take a step back in time. From its walls the views are spectacular rich agricultural and grazing land as far as the eye can

see. It overlooks the Atlantic coastline with views of Africa, as well as natural parks and forests of pìne that are a habitat for an abundant collection of birdlife, as well as offering a multitude of walking trails for those who want to reflect on the beauty of nature. The town was declared a Historical Artistic Monument of National Importance in 1978 and while it may have been a border against the Moors, it seems unlikely that the council will stand in the way of a development that could bring more wealth to the area. One thing is for sure with or without a new hotel, this whole area of quiet, undeveloped Spain, has much to offer and Vejer de la Frontera is a mustsee.

CoinBox review and new Double Halloween dates for your diary party at Pógs Successful local rock band CoinBox continue their hectic schedule, with a series of up and coming public performances between now and Christmas. You may have wondered where they have been lately, but the last couple of months they have been busy performing at private functions and at some 'out of area' venues. So if you have not had the chance to go along to see one of their gigs before, or if you are one of their many regular followers, why not take the opportunity to go along and see their show. And

indeed it is a show as they cover and put their own spin on a wide range of popular rock tracks, with plenty of stage theatrics and interaction with their audience. The guys are also very excited as they are in the process of producing some original tracks of their own, which they hope will be ready for their live performances in the New Year. You can check all their dates by viewing their website which will give you details on how to contact the band to book them for your private party, wedding, celebration or for public

venues. Unfortunately, due to their popularity, a few people have been disappointed when trying to book the band, so if you know that you have a special event coming up in the future it is advisable to contact the booking team early to avoid this situation. Public perfomances next month include: Saturday November 20th, Los Aperos, Alora from 09.30 pm onwards. Saturday November 27th, Cudeca Charity Fundraiser, Pizzara 7pm onwards.

Dressing up in weirdo Gothic costumes, howling and growling at the moon, blood and broomsticks, pumpkins and masks, if any of this sounds like fun to you - then be at Pógs live music bar in Fuengirola this Halloween long weekend. Dress up and let it all hang out, there are two rock 'til you drop fancy dress Halloween parties, two events to really show your inner self. It's all there, free shots just for looking good in your costume, special cocktails - deadly Black Mojitos at the Quijote Cocktail bar, loads of chilled Guinness and

brilliant music all weekend. The double party starts with Traffic Jam on Saturday night and Fun Fiction on Sunday, two great bands who cover everything from Pink Floyd and U2 to the Rolling Stones, the Doors and the Chilli Peppers. Both bands have a good following in the Fuengirola area, especially Traffic Jam who recently played in the castle with Boney M, but coming up fast are Fun Fiction. This bouncy Argentinian based band are just the boys you need for a real party, soft rock with attitude and talent, ideal

for a wild Halloween night. Anyone at the Pógs Rocky Horror party last year will testify that Pógs can really get going when it’s time for a celebration, it’s a big venue with two bars and a dance floor and don't forget Monday November 1st is also a holiday, All Saints, so .. party. On another note, later in the month from November 26th Pógs will be cutting back for a bit of staff rest and recuperation, to live bands only on Friday and Saturday nights until December 15th when it’s rock on for Christmas and the New Year’s Party.

ooking at the photograph of Daphne du Maurier it is difficult to believe what a scandalous lifestyle she is said to have led, or that some of the most suspenseful movies that Hollywood produced were adaptations of stories penned by her fair hand.


e King's Speech BY TOM HOOPER Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter




lthough “Jamaica Inn” was a very successful story, the 1939 Hitchcock version of it was spoiled by Du Maurier having to rewrite the ending to appease Charles Laughton’s massive ego. The movie is set in Cornwall where a young orphan, Mary, is sent to live with Aunt Patience and Uncle Joss who are the landlords of the Jamaica Inn. Mary soon realizes that her uncle's inn is the base of a gang of ship wreckers who lure ships to their doom on the rocky coast. The girl starts fearing for her life. This was Hitchcock’s last preHollywood movie. After his arrival in Hollywood the following year Hitchcock gave us “Rebecca”, a story of an innocent bride’s happiness being overshadowed by the sinister past of her new home and its intimidating housekeeper.

Hobbits on move?

An Oscar for Colin?

We may be living in the age of celeb magazines which lift the veil daily on the lives of our Royal Family and put them in the public spotlight, but we Brits still love a good period drama - and if it should be about the Royal Family, well, that's no bad thing at all - and this is a true story. In The King's Speech, Colin Firth brings to life Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI - a shy, diffident man catapulted into the role of head of an Empire on the verge of a world war. But "Bertie" was not just shy -he suffered agonisingly and painfully

Filming for the two Hobbit movies - prequels to the Lord of the Rings trilogy may yet be moved from New Zealand as a result of union action. The now empty Harry Potter studios in the UK have been suggested as one alternative as studio bosses at Warner Brothers try to get production sorted. The New Zealand scenery was a spectacular backdrop to the LOTR trilogy and was expected to have the same supporting role in the 3D versions of The Hobbit. The book will be filmed in two parts and has been dogged by setbacks including financial difficulties at MGM, who own half the project, and the decision of director Guillermo del Toro to quit. LOTR director Peter Jackson stepped in

from a profound stammer and the film opens with him looking anguished as he has to make a speech to a large audience, knowing that he will struggle to get out every word. As the diffident younger brother of the self-absorbed and charismatic King Edward VIII ( Guy Pierce) he had hoped to remain in the shadows. But Edward's abdication for the love of Mrs Simpson meant that Bertie had to accede to the throne at a time when the country needed to hear the calm, fluent voice of its King. And that is when Lionel Logue (Rush) stepped in.

but has been in a bitter dispute with New Zealand Equity - the actors union who called for an international boycott of the film, over pay and conditions. Late last week rumours abounded that the studio was looking at alternative filming locations and NZ premier John Kelly said it would be a "tragedy" if the movies were not made in the country. Talk of moving may have focused minds - on Monday the unions in New Zealand promised that there would be no industrial action impact on filming if the studio and Jackson - stick to plans to film there, and protesters dressed as characters from the book took to the streets in a bid to persuade studio bosses to stay.

The irreverent Australian speech therapist and the King spar as they try to correct the King's stammer. Director Hooper (The Damned United) has a rich collection of backdrops to illustrate his story - not least the glory of the accession ceremony in Westminster Abbey. Helena Bonham Carter plays Elizabeth BowesLyon, the fiercely protective wife of the new King (the Queen Mum always blamed her brother-in-law and Mrs Simpson for the early death of her beloved husband) and though it

After the release to a warm, critical reception of The King's Speech, Colin Firth is being hotly tipped for an Oscar nomination for his role as George VI. He picked up a BAFTA for best actor for his role in A Single Man and was nominated for an Oscar for his nuanced performance but lost out. Now it has been reported that Hugh Grant, Firth's fellow actor in the Bridget Jones movies, is feeling cross with himself. Apparently he was offered the part but turned it down and is now regretting it. Grant has admitted that acting holds less interest for him. His last role was in dire comedy Did you hear about the Morgans? with Sarah Jessica Parker, which one critic said showed Grant had already given up acting.

may not sound the most compelling story line in this day of rollercoaster rides with big guns, the verbal fireworks and top class acting by all the cast have had the critics pretty unanimous in their verdict that The King's Speech will be on award winning lists as the movie prize giving season approaches. The story ends on the eve of the Second World War - so of course we know that the King was a courageous winner in his own personal battle, and along with Churchill, provided inspiration for Britons as the war raged.

The Scapegoat”, 1959, is the story of a French count who schemes to kill his wife and implicate a mildmannered English schoolteacher whom he resembles. Alec Guinness plays the dual role of the French count and the benign Englishman. Despite some interesting supporting cast, including a very Baby Janeish Bette Davis, the story seems somehow only half told, and the two Guinness characters remain frustratingly underdeveloped.

Don’t Look Now”, directed by Nicholas Roeg, is taken from the short story of the same name and was released in 1973. Following the tragic drowning of their young daughter the Baxters move to Venice, where John Baxter works restoring church mosaics. There they encounter a sinister pair of sisters, one of who claims to be psychic, and from there we are led through the atmospheric canals of Venice to further tragedy.

Although haunting and beautifully filmed, one of the biggest bones of contention with this movie is the overly long and very graphic love scene between the protagonists. My general rule of thumb for love scenes in mainstream movies is ‘if you wouldn’t be comfortable watching it with your mother, then cut it out’….. or at least edit.


nother story filled with intrigue and mystery is the 1952 “My Cousin Rachel”, starring Richard Burton and Olivia de Havilland. When Philip’s cousin Ambrose dies, he is convinced that he was murdered by his new wife Rachel to inherit his wealth. But he ends up falling in love with her, and he knows that his suspicions must have been unfounded. But were they, or is Rachel just trying to use Philip to get at the estate Ambrose left to him instead of to her? And will she murder him next? The BBC also produced a very successful serialization of it in the 1980s, starring Geraldine Chaplin and Christopher Guard.


nd last, but by no means least Hitchcock’s 1963 “The Birds”. The titular tale follows pretty much the same storyline as the book that is, the birds go wild. Swarms of birds grow exponentially and start attacking people, and the tale focuses on a family’s struggle to survive. The only major difference is that the book is set in rural Cornwall, England while the film is set in California, but still manages to put across the sense of isolation and claustrophobia the family feel inside their home. The success of the story has been attributed to its metaphoric relation to the still fresh terror Londoners, especially, felt during the Nazi air raids of two decades earlier, as it was amplified by Cold War tensions.

It is a now-or-never feeling that is inspiring you to take action this week. You need to get something resolved and the pressure is building inside of you to make sure you get something sorted once and for all. The more you find yourself ‘doing’, the more empowered you will feel. Even though you need to take action others close to you may also need their own space to get on with their own things too – so you need to remember this when interacting with a loved one. You are fierce with strength and determination now, a lot more focused than you have been over the last few weeks. There is a renewed energy rising up within that wants to tackle projects head on. With this much work to do there is little time for anything else. However, towards the weekend a glimmer of romance lights up your life so expect to be wined and dined. More and more you are being asked to have a little trust and see how far it will take you. There is a sense of completion in an area of your life that is freeing up time and resources for other things. This is a breath of fresh air for you. Teaching from example is something that comes naturally and this will be of great benefit to those around you who are willing to learn. Watch your back, though, as someone in your circle stands to benefit if a problem arises, so be one step ahead and not give them the satisfaction. Time to let that guard down. A Cancer’s guard is made of hard stuff and it can feel uncertain and vulnerable to allow yourself the freedom to relinquish control. Find someone you can trust and have a more restful and relaxing week if possible as that is what you ideally need. Your delegation techniques are right on the ball and there will be no problems in asking others for a bit of help. By the weekend you will have relaxed enough to enjoy yourself – go and have some fun. There is a current challenge that needs to be faced and conquered and you have keen inner radar that is highly intuitive right now to guide you. You feel the urge to have a fresh start and a new beginning but know that it is impossible to lay the past to rest until certain aspects of that past are sorted out. Trust in yourself and communicate your ideas as soon as you can – you may be pleasantly surprised at another’s reaction to your suggestions, perhaps they want things sorted out too. You have a strong impulse in you to clear the air, you have known that things are not as good as they could be but have hoped that it would all right itself. Now you realise it is up to you to lay your cards on the table and say things as they are. This is no time for harbouring emotions but time to let the truth be known. Rather than waiting for things to happen, it is likely that you will take the lead in all areas of your life and get things moving.


Is the cash flow a little stagnant and stifled? It isn’t that you can’t make money but there could be an obstacle or two in the way of getting that cash flow back on track. This is the time for meetings where you can join forces with others of a like mind or spirit - there may be some things that you just can’t do on your own and need some team spirit to accomplish the results you crave. A September 23rd - rush of creativity gushes forth by the weekend and you are all set to create a October 22nd masterpiece.



October 23 November 21st

Life is full of surprises and this week encourages you to remain open and adaptable enough to capitalise on the opportunities coming your way. Desires that have lain dormant spring to the surface and if you have the will to direct them with purpose and unrestricted passion for what you believe in, then the universe will sort the rest. One thing is for sure, time is on your side; make sure you check the facts before jumping to conclusions, though.

SAGITTARIUS Are doubts creeping in, bringing tension into an area of your life that you thought was under control? Just as there are worldly threats that we hear everyday on the media there are is also some potential problem in our lives. The key is to be inspired and not afraid, most of the potential problems never happen so there is no point in panicking unnecessarily. This week you need November 22nd - to keep positive and there will be some miraculous changes springing your December 21st way.

CAPRICORN You are on the verge of an inspiring emotional breakthrough as this is a time of significant perception shifts for you. You have been looking at something and it has not been making sense, leaving you in quite a quandary - a veil lifts and all becomes clear. Your words now carry much weight and the impact that you have on others is profound. By the end of the week you will feel in a more nd December 22 confident position to make careful, considered and successful choices. January 19th

Removing yourself from a toxic relationship has allowed you to see the extent of the pain that has been endured. This objectivity has allowed certain pressures in your life to slowly reduce - there is only one last part to finish a drama that has all but played itself out. This final change may not come as quickly as you would like, as you still have to rely on someone else to put certain pieces into play. The main thing is you are far clearer as to what you now want. This can be a successful buying and selling time for you - trust your instincts when it comes to bargains and I doubt you can go wrong. The heavens want you to make decisions and choices that will benefit not only you but those of your family. Profound emotional issues are coming under scrutiny, enabling you to get to the bottom of an intense situation from the past. Once you understand the motivation behind this problem, you will be able to diffuse it.

Two weeks ago we looked at the verb tener. This week we're going to see some of the idioms it is used to make. Although tener usually translates as to have, when it is put together with a variety of words, such as frío, calor, sueño, suerte, hambre, sed, vergüenza, prisa, miedo, it changes its meaning to “to be.” So, Tengo prisa means I'm in a hurry Tengo hambre - I'm hungry Tienes sed - You're thirsty Tienes frío - You're cold Tiene sueño - He or she is sleepy Tiene vergüenza - He or she is embarrassed (Remember that if you say estoy embarazada you are saying you are pregnant so be careful!) Tenemos miedo - We're scared Tenemos suerte - We're lucky Tienen calor - They are hot, as in, they are feeling the heat. (Another word to watch out for is caliente. Do not use it to refer to people unless you wish to talk about them in a sexual context. Use caliente for plates and such like) Tener is also used to talk about one’s age. ¿Cuántos años tiene? How old is he or she? Tiene veintidos años - He's 22 years old (Do be careful to pronounce años as anyos - if you pronounce the n as an ordinary n the word becomes anus. Amazing the possible pitfalls we're coming accross today, isn't it) If you want to enquire about the age of a baby or very young child you ask ¿Cuánto tiempo tiene? You are not asking how many years old he or she is but how much time he or she has been alive. And remember, tenemos que practicar - We have to practise Buena Suerte - Good luck Hasta la próxima - Until next time Valerie runs the Centro Idiomas Language School in Coin.

New way to measure body fat

Beauty Tip

How fattening is drink?

Body Mass Index (BMI) has been used for 200 years to measure body weight based on a person's weight and height. It was not designed to determine how obese a person is, since it fails to take into account several factors, such as the distribution of the fat, and the ratio of muscle to fat tissue.

the Body Volume Index, which they claim provides a more realistic view of the body's shape, and will help identify people at risk of illnesses such as heart disease, strokes and diabetes.

Now scientists from the University of Aston in Birmingham have a launched a new indicator,

But unlike the BMI, you cannot calculate your BVI at home - it requires a specialised 3D white-light

scanner which takes a complete scan of the body to show how fat is distributed compared to a "normal" person. The scanner was developed as an offshoot from technology designed to help retailers such as Marks and Spencers produce more accurate clothing sizes.

A spokesman for Select Research, the company that developed the scanner, said: "Most people in the world realise that carrying extra weight around the stomach means that they do have a greater health risk, commonly known in healthcare as central obesity. What BVI now offers the world is a brand new way of measuring the

abdominal area which BMI simply cannot do." BVI is currently being tested through a clinical research programme led by Heartlands NHS Hospital in the UK and The Mayo Clinic in the USA. The 3D scanner involves no contact, and uses safe white light technology rather than radiation or lasers.

'Unsafe' drug found in herbal tea Payouji tea and Pai You Guo Slim capsules, herbal medicines that are marketed as weight loss aids, have been found to include the drug sibutramine, which was withdrawn in Europe and the US in January 2010 over fears it increased the risk of heart attack and stroke. Sibutramine was first

approved as an antiobesity drug in 1997, but data from recent studies suggests a higher rate of heart attacks and strokes among people taking it. The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Authority, which oversees medicines in the UK, said that any product containing the drug was

inhaler based on bitter substances such as quinine or even saccharine, which has a bitter after-taste, could "replace or enhance" current treatment but warned that simply eating bitter foods would not help protect from or relieve an asthma attack. A spokesman for the asthma research department at the University of Leicester said the finding was very "encouraging", potentially offering a new target for treatment. He said future

considered "harmful to human health". They said that not only could it have side effects including high blood pressure, seizures, heart attacks or strokes, but could interfere with other prescription medicines. Anyone taking the drug was urged to stop and consult their doctor.

Taste buds in lungs could ease asthma The discovery of "taste receptors" in the lungs rather than on the tongue could point the way to new medicines for asthma, researchers at the University of Maryland have said. In experiments with mice, they found that bombarding the receptors with bitter-tasting compounds helped open the airways, which could ease breathing. They said this could have implications for other lung diseases. They said that an



studies could focus on trying to reproduce the effect in human as well as mouse airway tissues, and making sure that the substances did not produce unwanted side effects such as inflammation. A spokesman for Asthma UK said that a significant number of the 5.4m asthmatics in the UK did not control their symptoms using existing drugs, and that research into new, more effective treatments, was "vital".

Two fifths of women surveyed in the UK’s Know Your Limits campaign didn't know that a glass of white wine has the same calorie content as a bag of crisps. Two large glasses of white wine not only put a woman over the recommended daily limit for alcohol consumption but - at approximately 370kcals - also provide her with nearly a fifth of her daily calorie allowance. Similarly, two fifths of men weren't aware that a pint of lager has as many calories as a sausage roll. A beer-drinker knocking back just five pints a week would add a whopping 44,200 calories over a year, equivalent to 221 doughnuts. More than one in three drinkers admitted they were likely to eat more than they usually would. The figures also suggest that the “morning after” sees us pack away yet more calories. Almost two thirds of drinkers who normally ate cereal or muesli for breakfast ditched it in favour of less healthy options to help them through their hangover – turning to a fry-up, bacon or sausage sandwich, or takeaway breakfast from a fast-food chain. That can add an extra 450 calories, on top of the alcohol calories consumed the night before. Tips to help avoid that weight gain: -Stick to the daily recommended units. Men should not regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day; women should not regularly drink more than 2-3 units a day. A pint of lager (ABV 5.2%) and a 250ml glass of wine (ABV 12%) both contain 3 units of alcohol. -Eat a healthy dinner before drinking so you're not tempted to go for the less healthy options. -Opt for a sandwich instead of crisps or chips, or a chicken burger, no mayo instead of a kebab. -Opt out of rounds and drink at your own pace. -Cut down with a friend for moral support. -Pace yourself by taking small sips. -If you're drinking white wine, add a splash of soda water to help the same number of units last longer. -Alternate with a glass of water.

Celebrity spotlight

Cheryl sends tights sales soaring Cheryl Cole was at the centre of controversy on Sunday as fans questioned whether she mimed to her new single on the results show, but she is still setting trends. The star gave a pulsating, full-on performance of her new song Promise This but did not appear to be singing live - an irony given that that is what all the contestants have to do. Her publicity team later revealed that her performance was pre-recorded in front of the studio audience an hour before the live show began, and that because of the strenuous dance routine she did not sing all the words. But her stripy stockings got tongues wagging. And a survey has shown that must-have hosiery is the latest fashion statement. Sixty three per cent of women now spend between £11 and £30 on a single pair of tights, inspired by the sexy look of Cheryl, and other stars like Alexander Burke. Online retailer Tights Please commissioned the research and predicted a surge in sales of Wolford's £32 Bondage tights, worn by Cheryl in the video for her new single. And now fans will be rushing to buy the stripy stockings worn by the Girls Aloud star on X-Factor. X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke wore a pair of Falke's £22 Glamour tights for her performance in the recent Help for Heroes concert and sales rocketed, and other stars like Pixie Lott and Agyness Deyn have helped put the Henry Holland designs for Pretty Polly onto the fashion pages.

So tights are no longer just an afterthought and it seems women are prepared to pay more for them as they play a bigger part in completing the total fashion design look. Tights Please director Charles Duncombe said:" We have been retailing tights for 10 years and have seen the average price rise from £4 in 2000 to £7 today as customers have demanded higher quality. That is an increase of 30 per cent over inflation." He added that the tights were a way of buying into the glamour of favourite celebrities without breaking the bank. "The explosion of the celebrity scene on the internet has created a 'me too' approach to buying hosiery and our customers want to look just like their favourite stars. A pair of tights costing in the region of £15 buys them a little of the glamour of Cheryl Cole or Alexandra Burke, as the rest of the outfit will probably be beyond their budget," he added.

TV show sets tone for must-have fashion The face of fashion has been changing under the influence of popular TV series Mad Men as the hourglass figure celebrates its return and '60s silhouettes appear in all the high street shops. The show's costume designer, Janie Bryant, has revealed that part of the secret of the success of fashions worn in the show is that the actresses are all wearing vintage and reproduction longline bras, girdles and panties. When the undergarments start to chafe the actresses are given pads made from moleskin, to cushion their skin. The Emmy winning series is set in a New York advertising agency and fashions have spanned the late '50s up to the early to mid '60s. The "Mad Men look" is found

everywhere, as Zara and other high street outlets stock fitted sheath dresses, coats with nipped-in waists, plaid capes and calf length pencil skirts - all on the autumn "must have" list. The show has been credited with encouraging the return of curves, personified by the size 14 38E actress Christina Hendricks, who plays office manager Joan.

published her book The Fashion File, on Monday and has launched her own collection - a capsule wardrobe inspired by the 50s and 60s.

Now iconic undie-makers Playtex are relaunching a new lingerie range aimed at over 50s inspired by the series. The company launched in the UK in the 1950s, is selling 12,000 girdles every week, and say the new line will provide sleek, sexy and discreetly supportive underwear for a client group that feels it has been pushed to one side by the other brands. In the meantime, Bryant




Well, it's all far removed from the day when black became the new American tan. And Cheryl's tights are positively bargain bucket compared to some in the Wolford range - how about the Seraphine fishnets embellished with hand-sewn crystals at a mere £79, or the fringe tights, which feature layers of fringing from calf to ankle, and cost a whopping £200 - you definitely would not want to ladder them.

They don’t earn as much as Wayne Rooney - well, they don´t actually earn anything at all. And they don´t get coached by Fabio Capello which may be a good thing. But currently scientists in the UK are working hard to refine a football team made up of

humanoid robots to compete in 2011’s robot football World Cup. Standardised robots from around the world are pitched against each other and this year’s tournament attracted entrants from 40 countries. Dr Subramanian Ramamoorthy, from Edinburgh

University, said preparing the robots to play football was a good way to create and refine software for robots that will help humans. The Robocup was set up with the aim of, by 2050, creating a team capable of taking on the best human players.



Illegal online sports streaming of matches 'increases'

Privacy body to re-examine Google Britain's privacy watchdog is to look again at what personal information internet giant Google gathered from private wi-fi networks.

The number of internet streams showing matches illegally has increased, say some of the UK's biggest sporting bodies. The Premier League, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Lawn Tennis Association all believe their sports have a problem.

streams have been removed in two years, according to internet monitoring company NetResult.

In most cases, the services are taken down almost as soon as they are put up.

The Department of Business says it's not a criminal offence to watch them but you could be sued in a civil court.

At The Information Commissioner's Office had investigated a sample earlier this year after it was revealed that Google had collected personal data during its Street View project. At the time, it said no "significant" personal details were collected. But Google has since admitted that e-mails and passwords were copied. On its official Google

blog, senior vice president Alan Eustace wrote that the company was "mortified" to discover, after the initial investigation in May, that personal information had been collected. Privacy watchdogs in numerous countries, including France, Germany and Canada, had also investigated the information. "It's clear from those [external] inspections that while most of the data is

fragmentary, in some instances entire e-mails and URLs were captured, as well as passwords," Mr Eustace wrote. "We want to delete this data as soon as possible and I would like to apologise again for the fact that we collected it in the first place. "We are mortified by what happened, but confident that... changes to our processes and structure will significantly improve

The formal demand relates to the mobile phone company's 2007 purchase of the Indian telephone assets of Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa. Vodafone will appeal against the tax at the Indian supreme court on Monday. The firm says the $11bn transaction was exempt

from tax because it took place between two offshore entities. But the Indian tax department now says that Vodafone must pay the capital gains tax, and has handed the company its first formal tax demand.

Congestion charge price hike The London congestion charge has undergone its biggest revamp since its introduction in 2003 amid criticism of ‘eye-watering’ rises in the charges. The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has accused Transport for London (TfL) of using ‘underhand tactics’ to bury a daily price increase of £1 to £10 during the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review.Congestion charges have increased 42 per cent since the charge was introduced seven years ago.

Alonso gifted Korean F1 GP Victory catapulted Alonso to the top of the F1 World Championship points standings as Red Bull take a pounding with both cars unable to finish the race.

Victory catapulted Alonso to the top of the F1 World Championship points standings. Lewis

Hamilton, who finished second for McLaren Mercedes, goes to Brazil second in the championship standings. Felipe Massa finished third, taking the final podium spot for Ferrari and making it the fourth time this season that both the Ferrari drivers have been on the podium together. The magnitude of the victory for Ferrari under the circumstances did not escape Alonso. “This is the best race of the year for our team. Two cars on the podium and being competitive all weekend. That’s the first wet race I have won, so I am very happy, but nothing has changed really. We all know the new points system, anything can happen,”he said. Runner-up Hamilton, who

was showing the strains of a three hour ordeal, said: “A great result. I am very happy with it. Ferrari had a little more grip than us so it was about bringing the car home.” Rain delays have been disrupting the Korean Grand Prix for several months as almost two months of work days were lost as rain lashed down in the Yeongam area. On race day the skies opened up again and rain pelted down relentlessly. Nevertheless over 100,000 people streamed to the country’s first Grand Prix and were streaming in even after the start despite the prevalent conditions. A gutted Red Bull team on Sunday night was ruing a catastrophic grand prix, which saw Mark Webber lose the championship lead, and Sebastian Vettel

the race. The immediate attention centred on pole sitter and race leader Vettel’s Renault engine failure, which Helmut Marko said took the team and its supplier by complete surprise. “It’s our first engine failure this year. The mileage was at about 1600 kilometres, and normally the average (life) is 2000-2100,” said Marko. “Something broke in the valve area, so it’s the first time. On Friday we were using an engine with much higher mileage,” said the team’s motorsport consultant. He advised German Vettel, 23, not to give up. “It’s not easy, but there are still 50 points to get,” said Marko. “Alonso is on his last engine. We’re not giving up.” Engine supplier Renault apologised later.

Classic Treasure Hunt Members of SOL Classic Car Club went on their annual treasure hunt this month, not only hunting for clues but also having to find the answers to a wide range of motoring-oriented questions set by organisers Terry and Andrea Ellis. The challenge began at Estepona Golf Club from where the cars followed the route book up past Casares and through Gaucin, always a scenic drive made even more beautiful by clear air and sparkling autumn sunshine. There was even a photo stop outside the picturesque pueblo blanco of Casares where a dozen or more griffon vultures were enjoying the thermals high above the church tower. Coming down from the

mountains, meeting flocks of sheep and groups of bikers, the route entered the flatter and greener valley where cattle graze – here some of the cars had a more than close encounter with two loose cows! Then, after a coffee stop down in San Pablo de Buceite (where there was plenty of conferring, head scratching and hiding of answer sheets), the route led past Jimena and back to the coast via San Martin del Tesorillo. At the lunch venue, La Casona, there was an impressive line-up of classics, much to the delight of the restaurant owner. After lunch answers were read out and the results announced. Winners this year were Jaybee and Chrissie

Blackburn in their Rolls Royce Silver Spur, accompanied by guests Anthony and Gill. They were presented with the club's treasure hunt trophy, renamed The Roscoe David Memorial Cup, in memory of one of the founder members who died earlier this year. Runners up were

Keyman opens doors Most of us are careful with our keys, after all, if we aren't, we won't get into our homes or be able to drive the car. Usually we have a spare set of house keys, as it's easy to get a set cut, but when it comes to our car keys most people suffer from the “One Key Syndrome”. It's not our fault. When you buy the car, one key is all you are given, or it's 'I've lost one, I'll get another cut next week'. Then disaster strikes, and the only key is lost. Most people think the only solution is to go back to the main dealer. But now you can have a locksmith come to your car with no grua expense and no main dealer charges.San Pedro based THE KEYMAN, run

Former GB Olympic rowing star dies Great Britain's double Olympic champion rower Andy Holmes MBE has died at the age of 51. Holmes was part of the coxed four crew, which included Sir Steve Redgrave, that won a gold medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Holmes is believed to have died from the bacterial infection Weil's disease, also known as leptospirosis. The infection is a problem for watersport athletes because it can be caught through coming into contact with river water containing the urine of infected animals.

Axarquia Rugby Club Pointless in Pamplona Malaga went to Pamplona knowing that they had a good overwhelm Granada record there but the game could not have had a worse start. Free running at the Fernando Hierro stadium, Velez-Malaga Axarquia Rugby Club started their league season with a stunning display of rugby against the former first division side University of Granada Rugby Club. Axarquia ran through with 5 tries, one of them a superb display of back running, to overwhelm the strong team from Granada by 30 points to 10. This was a game fought with tremendous spirit and cameraderie from both sides and was superbly officiated by the Andalucian rugby federation referee. Hopefully, this is a foretaste of the season to follow, and everyone can enjoy a festival of rugby and sportsmanship in the forthcoming months. Michael Reeve, the new coach of Axarquia was ecstatic: “Fantastic…what a display…a great team effort and we know we will be challenging for promotion this season after that. The other teams in our division will be taking note of this result.” Supporter, Peter Milton said: “ it s difficult to hold back the emotion – this is a fantastic day for our team, Axarquia Rugby”.

Motril. A game full of running rugby, great skill and some really hard tackling resulted in a well deserved draw ending 20-20 with 4 tries scored by both sides.

Training for Axarquia Rugby Club is held at the Fernando Hierro Stadium in Velez-Malaga every Tuesday and Thursday at 19.00 for the juniors and 20.30 for the seniors.

Within two minutes Osasuna broke down the right wing and Manu Torres stupidly pulled down the winger in the box giving away a stonewall penalty. Nekounam stepped up and sent Galetto the wrong way to make it 1-0. Baha upfront, playing for the injured Rondon, had a half chance on 10 minutes but Osasuna were playing with more authority. Malaga cleared off the line on 13 minutes after allowing Osasuna a free header on goal. Malaga's only real chance of the half fell to Weligton who failed to connect with a back heel. Galetto in the Malaga goal made a great save on 31 minutes, but it was all Osasuna and the inevitable happened in the 37th minute. Malaga's defence failed to clear a cross and the ball fell to Massoud, who crashed the ball into

Soriano's 56thminute corner was not dealt with by Malaga's defence, and when Massoud sent the ball back into the danger zone from the right-side of the six-yard box, Aranda was on hand to divert the ball into the back of the net

and set the seal on a solid win. In the closing few seconds substitute Edinho nearly gave Malaga a consolation goal, with a blazing shot that went just wide.

Magic Matteo Manassero makes history! It was truly a magical moment for Italian teenager Matteo Manassero when he became the youngest European Tour event winner with a four-shot victory at the Castello Masters in Valencia on Sunday. It was a superb performance from the teenager, who at just 17 years and 190 days, broke the record that had been held by New Zealander Danny Lee who was 18 years and 213 days old when he won the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic. The 17-year-old sank three consecutive birdie putts on the back nine to move to 16 under with a final round 67. Spain's Ignacio Garrido finished second on 12 under while England's overnight leader Gary Boyd dropped four shots in the last three holes to end 11 under. Said Manassero: "I couldn't imagine to be a winner the first year, it was just to keep my card and now I'm a winner already." Joining the celebrations of breaking records, Rory McIlroy was proud to

become the first player to hit balls under the shadows of Pyramids last week at the Egyptian Open when he fired six birdies but also hit three bogeys. McIlroy's three-under-par 69 left him on two under - 10 behind leader Scotland's George Murray. "Three years ago, I would never have dreamt I'd be able to do something like this. It's really cool," said McIlroy after his visit to the Pyramids. Unfortunately, there was nothing for Colin Montgomerie to celebrate last week after he experienced a “terrible shock” on Friday after being involved in a car

accident near Glasgow. He said he was lucky to have walked away from the crash "relatively unscathed", but he confirmed he was pulling out of the charity walk in Inverness on Friday. The walk was in aid of the Elizabeth Montgomerie foundation, which he set up in memory of his mother after she died of cancer. Monty was driving his BMW southbound on the A80 when the incident happened. "I was trapped as the side of the car was compressed and the air bags were holding me back, but the passenger door suddenly opened and I was pulled to safety thanks to other drivers who had witnessed the accident," he said. Monty felt it was unnecessary to go to hospital and received treatment at the roadside from the ambulance crew before being taken back to his home in Perth. Strathclyde Police have now confirmed a male van driver has been charged over the crash. Report by Claire Voet

Bowls: Malaga V Spain

Santa Maria Bowls Club confirmed their support for the Federacion Andaluza De Bolos and the Federacion Espanola De Bolos, by contributing funds and staging the highest level match of bowls, on the Costa Del Sol.

Malaga’s newly formed select squad played the Spanish national squad and the development team at Elviria, Santa Maria Bowls Club and put on a show of competitive bowling of a world class. Malaga lost against the National squad section but managed to beat the development part of the squad. This resulted in an overall 31points to Malaga and 33 points to Spain, defeat for Malaga, but what a result. The international format was played over two days, with Pairs and Triples in the morning and Rinks (Fours) and Singles in the afternoon. Full report on the web site

Spanish winners dominate Fifa Ballon d’Or award shortlist. Seven of Spain's World Cup winning-squad have been shortlisted for Fifa's Ballon d'Or award. Andres Iniesta, who scored the winning goal in the final, along with Barcelona team-mates Xavi, Carles Puyol and David Villa, and Real Madrid's Iker Casillas and Xabi Alonso are all listed. Cesc Fabregas of Arsenal is also nominated, but there are no English nominees. Last year’s winner Lionel Messi, pictured right, is also on the list.

Sprinter Usain Bolt says he is back to full fitness Usain Bolt looks to have finally recovered from the injuries which forced him to rest for the last few months. The sprinter cut short his season way back in August - only four days after losing to Tyson Gay over 100m in Stockholm. But the triple Olympic champion, 24, is back in training and intends to defend his 100m and 200m

World titles at the 2011 World Championships in Korea.



Lance Armstrong to race down under

Bolt said: "The good news is that I am 100% healthy and am completely over my back and Achilles tendon problems."

Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong will ride his last professional race outside the United States in January's Tour Down Under. Armstrong, 39, quit the sport in 2005 before returning in 2009, but in July he confirmed that 2010 would be the last time he rode the Tour de France. In what is likely to be his last season, The Tour Down Under is the Texan's first confirmed race for 2011.

Bolt missed the remaining Diamond League meetings in Zurich


Bolt’s last outing in Sweden and he shows signs of the strain we very rarely see

and Brussels after suffering

his first defeat in two years when he was beaten by Gay in Sweden. The Jamaican sprinter also missed the Commonwealth Games in September as he struggled to overcome a back injury. But Bolt, who set a new 100m world record at the World Championships in Berlin in August 2009, has revealed in his IAAF online

diary that he is raring to go again. "I am really enjoying training at the moment," he stated. "For the first time in my career I was looking forward to getting back into training before my end-ofseason break was over.”

England complain about Russia’s 2018 comments England's 2018 World Cup bid team has lodged a complaint with Fifa against the head of Russia's rival campaign over comments he made about London. Russia 2018 chief executive Alexei Sorokin was quoted as criticising high crime rates and the drinking habits of young people in England's capital. Fifa has strict rules prohibiting criticism of rival bids. Sorokin said he had no intention to discredit bid rivals and is ready to apologise for any "misunderstanding".
