ARSON SUSPECTED - Local News

Mijas fire devours 14 homes More than 900 people were forced from their homes in Mijas, Ojen and Marbella by the fire which started on Sunday and raged for 36 hours, ravaging 400 hectares of woodland, before firefighters using every means available, including helicopters, were able to bring it under control. The cause of the fire is yet to be established, however the head of the fire department, Juan Diaz Trillo, who also visited the area, said the possibility that the fire had been started intentionally had not been ruled out.

sources inside Infoca, the Junta's firefighting organisation, who told reporters: “The arsonists know only too well how to do us harm.” Local residents are also inclined to believe that the fire was the work of an arsonist.

Mijas fire devours 14 homes They pointed out that fires have broken out in the same area for several years now and they do not believe this is a coincidence. Mijas mayor Angel Nozal agreed with

them. He said there were no electricity pylons in the area which could have been struck by lightning, and there was no solid proof that a barbecue had started the fire. He said

there were many reasons why the fire did not start spontaneously. “There are people who have had their building plans paralysed for urban planning reasons, others have been

fined for disposing of rubbish in the campo and then there are the usual arsonists,” he said. On the other hand, in 2007, the Junta's

environment department identified 680 places with a high risk of fire in Malaga province, the majority of them between Marbella and Mijas.

From next week on the Health and Beauty pages there will be a column dedicated to your queries about such things as your hair (like mine) being a total mess after the summer, your nails are splitting - what can you do about it, you’re going to a special occasion and your colouring is X so what colour outfit should you go for and what are the likely fashionable colours going to be, etc etc. So, for all your beauty hints and problem help, send your questions to editorial@thenewsonline.es We have teamed up with M H Bland in Gibraltar to give our readers some fantastic cruise offers. The first one departs on Thursday 22nd September so, if you’ve been working hard all summer or just fancy a change, get in quick for the first of the Readers Offers. The trip is a nine-day romantic Rhine and magical Moselle cruise with a saving of £500 per cabin and the costs include your flights, transfers, check in and full board on the boat! Other nine-day cruises are available until the end of October and are just such a good opportunity to get in some quality cruising at an incredibly low price. A friend of mine went to court in Malaga yesterday. Somebody tried to break into his business premises a couple of months ago and was caught by the police. He was trying to hack his way through solid reinforced concrete with a claw hammer and chisel at dead of night in the quiet and somebody heard the constant hammering and called the police. My friend received a letter saying that he must appear or face a fine (who is the victim here?) and that the person he was coming up against had given his name as “lone Rat”. You couldn’t make it up, could you?! The slimming is going quite well and I lost the grand total of .2 of a pound last week but this week.....

Madrid govt MPs’ personal 'hides pollution' wealth on internet For the first time ever, the public found out last week just how much money their elected officials make. Another first was that Partido Popular candidate Mariano Rajoy, who has always refused to give information about his personal wealth in the past, let it be known that he earns €173,265 a year, and got another €98,225 in "per diems and

appearance fees" in 2010. His personal wealth of €597,442 includes four homes, two of them in Madrid, an office, savings, investment funds, stock and insurance policies. Socialist Party Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba earned €55,519 as interior minister and deputy prime minister plus €64,008 as an MP. His personal wealth of €984,281 includes his

Madrid home, savings and investments. José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero's salary as prime minister is €67,427 plus €10,446 as general secretary of the Socialist Party. When he steps down, he will get a €3,000 monthly pension. Gaspar Llamazares, United Left (IU) parliamentary spokesman, declared €303,058 in savings and investments.

In its latest study of pollution levels in 17 European cities, the European Environmental Board (EEB) includes an accusation by the Ecologists in Action to the effect that the Madrid authorities have disguised the city's pollution levels by moving the measuring equipment to the less polluted areas. The EEB report also noted that the city authorities had avoided answering several

questions about the lack of low emission zones and penalties for the biggest polluters, while recognising that pollution levels in Madrid have been dropping gradually in recent years. The city scored 58 points out of a hundred for pollution, with Berlin and Copenhagen being the cleanest cities. Rome and Milan were the most polluted cities.

Cabinet to Comfortable revive win for PP wealth tax A survey by Metroscopia for El Pais newspaper has confirmed earlier polls that gave the Partido Popular a 14.1 per cent lead in the November 20th general election which would translate into an absolute majority of at least 185 seats. The survey also showed that 81 per cent of Socialist voters were expecting a crushing defeat. According to Metroscopia, Socialist voter participation could drop to 70 per cent, five points less than in 2008, and similar to levels in 2000, when José María Aznar won an absolute majority. Although the Socialist Party candidate, Adolfo Perez Rubalcaba, came out more popular than Mariano Rajoy, 42 per

cent of those questioned believe the latter will handle the economic crisis better. Only 30 per cent said Rubalcaba was more capable. Most political observers agree that the former deputy PM's election troubles are compounded by the fact that he has not been able to distance himself enough from the negative image of Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.

The Cabinet is expected to approve a decree reimposing a tax on the wealthy at its next meeting on Friday, in line with the election promise of Alfredo Pérez Rubacalba, the Socialist candidate in the general election. In 2008, the government offered 100-percent tax breaks on the wealth tax without fully abolishing it. As it still remains on the statute it can be easily revived by means of a decree. According to Socialist Party sources, the government is expected to approve a tax threshold that will only affect the very wealthy, exempting the

middle classes. The main reason the government gave for removing the wealth tax in 2008 was that it affected the middle classes rather than the rich who could find ways of avoiding it. It is estimated that the tax could bring in €1.4 billion which would be used create jobs for young people. GREETINGS CARDS, HELIUM BALLOONS, PARTY DECORATIONS the party people!!

Govt money used for cock fights

Injured cock from a previous raid.

The Guardia Civil's Nature Protection Service (Seprona) reported on Monday that the council of Santa Cruz de La Palma in the Canary Islands had used a €166,000 subsidy from the Environment Ministry to build a ring for cock fighting. A Seprona spokesman said the money had been allocated officially to the World Biosphere Reserve located on the island. Mayor Sergio Ramos (Socialist Party) said the ring had been built by the former council under mayor Juan Ramon Felipe

of the Canary Nationalist Party. The Canary Islands and Andalucia are the only two regions in Spain that tolerate cock fighting even though the regional parliament approved an animal protection law in 1991 which had a clause stating “the legal possibility

of making money out of shows involving the mistreatment, suffering and death of animals was especially undesirable”. However, the law makes an exception of cock fighting and only forbids “public administrations from encouraging such shows,

by not authorising new buildings and especially by not encouraging the transmission of a taste for such spectacles to new generations by making sure they are held in closed premises which young people under the age of 16 are not allowed to enter.”

Ebro overheating claim probed The Environment Ministry's River Ebro watchdog, the Confederación Hidrográfica del Ebro, is investigating a claim by Greenpeace that the nuclear plant at Garoña, Burgos, is heating up the

river above permitted levels. Nuclear plants need a constant flow of water to cool them down and the Garoña plant is authorised to use 24,000 cubic metres per second from the Sobron dam on the Ebro.The Ebro watchdog had warned in

July 2009 of a possible problem with the plant's cooling system which Greenpeace decided to investigate, hiring a specialist company earlier this year to measure the water’s heat. Regulations specify that the river water

www.thenewsonline.es

should not heat up more than three degrees above its average temperature which varies with the time of the year. The test found the water was 15º higher nearer the plant than the river's temperature below and above the plant.

Twitter turns down anorexia request In response to the Health Ministry's request to Twitter last week to remove controversial profiles from its pages, the US-based social network replied that it “firmly believes in the importance of freedom of speech and works to preserve it”. It said that limiting this freedom on any social network could produce the adverse result that what is normally permitted in the real world is restricted online. After receiving Twitter's email, Health Minister

Leire Pajín said she intended to raise the matter at a meeting of European Union health representatives in October. Sra Pajin said: "Obviously, it will carry a lot more weight than if Spain does it on its own. This is a problem that is not just ours but is much broader and it's something that is spread across social networks. We have to stand together and ask Twitter and other social networks to help us to block or stop the proliferation of such profiles."

TARRAGONA

Not €7.5 but €33 million! A pensioner went along to a lottery outlet mid-week, thinking he’d won €7.5, having checked that Sunday’s Primitiva Gordo on the internet. But he’d entered the numbers incorrectly and found himself €33.024.545 richer instead. It was the biggest individual win ever paid out by the Primitiva lottery. The pensioner had spent €6 on four lines of numbers and had been walking around for four days with the ticket in his pocket. The lottery office staff said later: “we were more nervous than he was.”

The privatisation of one of the most famous lotteries in the world – the stateowned Loterías y Apuestas del Estado which hands out an estimated €2.3 MADRID Spaniards rank high on piracy billion a year in prizes – began in London on Tuesday. The float was led by a quartet of investment banks – UBS, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan Cazenove and Goldman Sachs – along with Spain's BBVA and Santander, and a host of rival City firms including Citi, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley and Barclays are also hoping to get a piece of the winnings. Loterías could become the world's largest listed gaming company by value, if the offer is successful. It has 10,500 distribution points in Spain – the world's fourth largest lottery market after China,

the US and Italy. Along with the UK's Camelot and France's Française des Jeux, Loterías runs EuroMillions, but its most famous payout is El Gordo, the world-record-breaking prize fund in Spain's 199year-old Christmas lottery which shelled out € 2.3 billion in December. Come civil war, hell or high water, El Gordo has taken place on December 22nd every year since 1812. It can create up to 390 millionaires at a time. The game was started as a fundraiser for orphans, and the procedure

followed for the draw has not varied since it began, when the orphans themselves pulled the numbers. Today, Madrid schoolchilden have replaced the orphans in a modernised version of the draw which is shown live on national TV. It is a true lottery, not a lotto, in which players pick a combination of numbers. El Gordo tickets come with the numbers pre-printed. Ticket numbers range from 0 to 84,999, and many players

go for significant dates or numbers when choosing a ticket. In 2009, for example, tickets printed with the numbers forming the date of Michael Jackson's death – 25609 – were heavily sought after. Last year, the winning number was 79.250, and many of the winners were thought to be fans of Barcelona football club, who had opted to buy tickets ending in the numbers five and zero in order to celebrate their team's 5-0 victory over arch-rivals Real Madrid last season.

Just over 13 per cent of Spaniards always use pirated software programmes on their computers and another 37 per cent “almost always”, according to the latest study by the Business Software Alliance (BSA), a worldwide association representing 100 companies. In Europe, only the Poles and the Czechs use more pirated software, while China is the world leader. Paradoxically, nearly three quarters of the people questioned in 32 countries said they believed in intellectual property rights and preferred legal software. MADRID

House sales still falling In the second quarter of this year, house sales were down 40 per cent over the same period last year, according to figures from the Public Works Ministry, which is the biggest drop since 2004. Overall figures for the first six months of this year show that just over 165,285 houses and apartments were sold, compared to 260,243 for the same period last year and more than 400,000 for the same period in 2007 before the construction bubble burst.

Drunk elk found in apple tree

Mustafa Abdul Jalil

The head of the National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, outlined his plans to create a modern democratic state based on "moderate Islam" to thousands of flag-waving supporters in the newly renamed Martyrs' Square on Monday. It was his first speech in Libya's capital, Tripoli, since the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. Mr Jalil told some 10,000 supporters to avoid retribution attacks, adding that Libya's new leaders would not accept any extremist ideology. He said: "We are a Muslim nation,

with a moderate Islam, and we will maintain that. You are with us and support us – you are our weapon against whoever tries to hijack the revolution." He said women would play an active role in the new Libya, and thanked a number of nations – including France and Britain – for supporting

the NTC. His words, broadcast live on television, were met with rapturous applause, as fireworks illuminated the Tripoli waterfront. In its latest report, Amnesty International said that while the bulk of violations since the uprising began were carried out by loyalist

forces, anti-Gaddafi fighters have also been involved in torture and revenge killings. Amnesty said a full picture had yet to emerge, but it had asked Libya's opposition leadership to take steps to rein in its supporters and investigate any abuses, and to combat xenophobia and racism.

A homeowner in Ser near Gothenburg couldn’t believe his eyes when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour's apple tree. the animal was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.

her roars attracted Per Johansson, who called the emergency services. they helped him free the boozedup beast by sawing off branches. She spent the night recovering in the garden and took to the woods next day with her hangover.

Nuclear explosion kills one One person was killed and four injured, one seriously, in a blast at the Marcoule nuclear site in France on Monday morning. Local officials said there was no risk of a radioactive leak after the blast, caused by a fire near a furnace in the Centraco radioactive waste

storage site. National electricity provider EDF, which owns the southern French plant, said it had been "an industrial accident, not a nuclear accident". Interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said later there had been no leak of radiation, either inside or

outside the plant. Officials said the injured workers were not contaminated by radiation, and the worker who died was killed by the blast and not by exposure to nuclear material. Marcoule was opened in 1955 and is one of France's oldest nuclear sites, though it has

been extensively modernised. All the country's 58 nuclear reactors have been put through stress tests in recent months, following the disaster at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant which was hit by an earthquake and tsunami.

Sao Paulo airport work halted A federal court in Brazil has ordered an immediate halt to work on a new terminal at the main international airport in Sao Paulo on the grounds that the state

airport authority ignored the proper bidding process when awarding the contract for the project. Judge Louise Vilela Filgueiras Borer said the

move represented a "dangerous precedent" for public works in Brazil, allowing regulations to be ignored in the name of urgency. The airport

authority said it would appeal against the decision to try to get work restarted. The terminal is designed to double the airport's capacity.

Concern mounts for Happy Feet Scientists have lost contact with happy Feet, the emperor penguin who was washed up on a New Zealand beach, and operated on after eating sand. he was released from the research vessel tangaroa on September 4th into the Southern ocean to find his way home. A transmitter attached to the penguin on his release stopped relaying information on his location on Friday. researchers said the most likely explanation was that the transmitter had fallen off the penguin but he may have been eaten by a predator.

Nairobi pipeline blaze kills dozens Many people died as a result of a petrol pipeline explosion and fire in an industrial area in Kenya's capital on Monday. The pipeline runs through the densely populated Sinai slum area between Nairobi's city centre and the airport. Police and troops cordoned off the area as firefighters battled fierce flames in the surrounding shanty town. A Red Cross official, Pamela Indiaka, said at least 75 bodies had been recovered and some reports put the toll at more than 100 dead. More than 110 people were

injured. The Kenya Pipeline Company said in a statement that the blast could have been sparked by a cigarette butt being thrown into an open sewer that was filling with fuel leaking from the NairobiMombasa pipeline. Residents said many people had rushed to collect leaking fuel. Bodies were seen floating in a nearby river, into which burns victims had

reportedly leapt after catching fire. TV images showed survivors staggering around in a daze, with skin peeling off their faces and arms, and schoolchildren running in all directions. There have been other deaths in Kenya involving people collecting leaking fuel. More than 100 people died in Molo, western Kenya, in 2009 after a fire on an overturned tanker.

lawyer told a pre-sentence hearing that bragging about sexual exploits and filming them were rife at the HMAS Cerberus base south of Melbourne. Calvert reportedly filmed himself giving the thumbsup during the sexual assaults after a night of heavy drinking with colleagues. The court

heard that the victim only learned that the incident had taken place several months later when she was told by others who had seen the explicit footage. The case comes ahead of the publication of the findings of a government review into sexual abuse in the Australian military.

UK News Slavery lives in Britain Four men have been arrested in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire and been charged with offences involving slavery. The four men, all of whom are from a travellers site are alleged to have picked vulnerable people from soup kitchens and from Job Centres around the UK. Some have been held for up to 15 years but 28 people managed to escape and raised the alarm at a police station. Raids were carried out across the UK on Sunday morning, which it was reported was supposed to be the “slaves” day off at

travellers’ sites and it is expected that more people will be found to have been held against their will. It was reported that they had to get up at 6am on Sunday mornings to clean the sites before they were allowed to do other things. The men, named as Tommy Connors, 30, Patrick Connors, 19, James (Big Jim) Connors, 34, and James (Jimmy) Connors, 23, all of Greenacres caravan site in Great Billington, Leighton Buzzard are from the same family of travellers and were charged with conspiracy to hold a person in servitude and requiring

Some of the victims were BA stewards and stewardesses, some were relaxing before meetings and some had simply gone to the top of the tower for breakfast on that fateful day that changed the world and pushed the States and the UK into retaliative action. Prince Charles said in a short speech that, far from dividing people as intended by al-Qaeda it had brought people together. Earlier, a service in Westminster Abbey was presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr George Carey who praised the "selfless bravery" and "extraordinary heroism"shown by so many. “Many lives were saved that day by the selfless bravery of others. The exhausted man on the 40th floor who was given water and fresh hope by a complete stranger – a stranger who simply wouldn't let him give up, dragging the man by his collar, onwards to safety. And let us remember too, the extraordinary heroism of the emergency services in New York – the police, the fire officers and the medical teams. Though many of them would deny it, they were not `simply doing a job'."

Driving offences A survey has revealed that as many as 1.4 million motorists are driving around whilst being uninsured. The drivers, often young people who say they cannot afford the insurance even though they can afford the car and its petrol, are totting up a huge £500 million pounds worth of costs to insurance companies caused by accidents they cause, sometimes during hit-and-run incidents. This means that the cost of insurance for drivers who do obey the law is set to go up by another £30 a year to cover it. If caught, the offenders are likely to get just three points on their licence and a £100 fine that they often do not pay. A broadcaster on Sky News on Monday said: “With that kind of penalty, no wonder they don’t pay their insurance dues. Why would they when they hardly ever get caught and, when they do, it’s cheaper than paying for insurance anyway. We need to see much tougher sentences where the punishment fits the crime.” UK

Abused by thugs Thousands of people were found to be putting up with abuse in their own homes by local thugs, according to a recent report. The report added that up to two million disabled people registered a “crime against the person” during 2010. Such crimes include being shouted at in the street and being spat at, poked or just punched by someone as they walk past. Mostly such crimes are committed by people between the ages of 11 and 30 but the rate of apprehending them is negligible. UK

Killer released One of the killers of ten-year-old Damilola Taylor has been released after serving just five years of the eight- year sentence handed down. He was seen strolling through a park drinking lager and smoking. He is claiming Job Seekers allowance.

Briton killed Briton David Tebbutt, 58, was shot and killed as his wife, Judith looked on in horror at the paradise resort of Kiwayu Safari Park on Lamu Island, Kenya which is near the border with Somalia. It has been reported that there were six men who entered their bungalow, that apparently had no windows or doors, just curtains, early on Sunday morning. They had flown in on Saturday and were the first people to arrive at the resort. Twenty security guards apparently did not get involved in the incident which saw Judith Tebbutt, 56 taken away by the murders in a speedboat. She has not been seen or heard from since and concern is growing as she relies on hearing aids, having only 30% hearing. A man has been arrested by Kenyan police in connection with the incident and Scotland Yard detectives have flown to Kenya to help with the investigation. The Foreign Office has advised against travel to the area.

Henry Bliss became the first automobile fatality (in New York)

Woman bleeds to death

A criminal past Police have discovered that the 70-year-old man being held without bail for killing a 79-year-old in broad daylight in a busy square in Torremolinos has a police record in France. Back in February 1963, he was arrested in connection with the death of his 28year-old wife who fell from the first floor of the Eiffel Tower. Francisco Toledo Pernia was sentenced to five years in jail by a Paris court in September 1965, after confessing to police that he had perched his wife on the protective railing to

frighten her into confessing that she had been unfaithful. However, he claimed her fall was an accident though a witness claimed he had pushed her. Police said the motive for last week’s crime was that Toledo had not been paid the commission he felt was due to him on a property deal involving the

man he killed, identified as Pedro L.M.N, who had sold the property. Toledo had been paid €1,800 but felt he was owed €12,000. He had been reported to the police for threatening the victim last August. In 2006, he was sentenced to four years in jail for knifing the purchaser of the property, who survived the attack. Toledo was released after two and a half years.

A 47-year-old Spanish woman bled to death at her home in San Pedro Alcantara after being stabbed several times in the neck. She was found at midnight on Saturday by the owner of the apartment, who called the police. They said the

woman had already been dead for several hours. Neighbours said they had heard nothing unusual that day. They said she was one of five women who lived in the house and worked as prostitutes, apparently

managed by a Rumanian. They told police they had seen the man and the other women crying outside the house that night. Police said that, as yet, they did not have a motive for the crime.

Ronda council sends bills back Ronda Mayor Maria Paz Fernandez (PP) announced on Monday that the council is returning invoices to local companies with instructions to contact the Socialist council that contracted them originally. Sra Fernandez said the companies had not submitted estimates or

completed the necessary paperwork and that the works had been allocated on the say-so of the former Socialist mayor. She said the invoices totalled more than €600,000 and she would continue to send them back until told the current council was legally responsible for them. She also said the council was considering taking legal

action against former mayor Antonio Marin for leaving the council's coffers in such a “lamentable” state. “You can't create a ruinous economic situation without having to face the consequences,” Sra Fernandez said. “In three years, they cleaned out the council.”

Minister for Europe discusses property issues Minister for Europe, David Lidington, recently met several British citizens to discuss property issues in Spain where he heard firsthand the problems affecting some purchasers, especially difficulties recovering deposits both with and without bank guarantees and the consequent stress this is causing. Mr Lidington emphasised that the British government is concerned about the impact that these problems are having and that both ministers and the ambassador will continue to raise these issues with the Spanish government.

He stressed, however, that the best advice the British government could give continued to be; that buyers should do their research and seek appropriate legal advice. The one-off meeting on 8th September followed a petition submitted by Ruth Genda, highlighting the failure of many developers to issue legally required bank guarantees on offplan purchases. The minister went on to explain; the British government cannot prevent the Spanish government from encouraging foreign investment in their

property market. It is a matter for prospective purchasers to decide whether or not they wish to buy in Spain. Whilst there are a significant number of people experiencing problems who the government is doing all it can to help, the vast majority of people live in Spain happily. The minister said: “I advise anyone considering buying a property abroad to do your research, learn about what documentation you must have in hand and make sure that you seek independent legal advice from a lawyer who is experienced in property law.” In addition, there is a wealth of information on buying in Spain available on the UK in Spain website, both for those who are thinking of buying, and for those who are unfortunately facing problems.

Dog patrols to seek poison The Junta de Andalucia's environment department has started using specially trained dogs in the Sierra de Castril, Granada province, to sniff out the poisoned bait left by some livestock breeders for the predators that prey on their flocks. They are the first such dog patrols in Europe and the project has the support of the Vulture Conservation Foundation (VCF), the Black Vulture Conservation Foundation and the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP). Vultures are especially vulnerable but a spokesman for the Guardia Civil's Seprona said the poisoned bait was a danger to all carnivorous wildlife in the area. The dogs have been trained to keep people and animals away from the bait they find until they receive a signal for their handlers, when they

allow it to be removed. The Sierra de Castril was chosen for the pilot project because it was the last refuge in Spain for black vultures, which were last seen there in 1988. Black vultures bred in captivity have been released in the area since 2004 but 12 of them have died from eating poisoned bait. The Seprona spokesman said the bait affected the whole food chain not just endangered species, and even the water could be contaminated if a poisoned animal fell into an aquifer. Local livestock breeders are already complaining. One said:

N

EWS IN BRIEF

“When they find a poisoned bait they close off the whole pasture area so even if we haven't set the bait, our animals can't graze there.” But an environment department spokesman said: “This is not a punishment. If the animals graze on contaminated land and are poisoned, what then? It's better to control the damage.” He said the breeders would stop complaining when they realised that the dog patrols were not just protecting vultures, foxes and other species but also the livestock that normally graze there.

Hawks to keep port seagull-free

Angry residents want hotel opened The day after Greenpeace activists called off their occupation of the 21storey Algarrobico hotel built illegally in the Cabo de Gata-Nijar natural park, a group of residents from Carboneras, Almeria province, gathered outside it to demand its immediate opening. One of them, a member of the Carboneras Tourism Businessmen's Association, said: “This area lives off tourism and we can't destroy anything that will earn income for us, given the current economic situation.” The residents also said they are sick of the negative publicity given to the area by Greenpeace, which has occupied the hotel five times in recent years demanding its demolition.

Following complaints from boat owners, workers, storekeepers and residents about the seagulls at the town's marina, the council has decided to bring in a company that uses hawks – in this case the Harris hawk – to clear areas of bothersome birds or animals.

Memo from

Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Spain is different

W

ith the general election just 10 weeks away, this may be an opportune moment to clear up some political terms that may be confusing to Britons who can read the Spanish press, or who read El Pais in English online.

E

l Pais uses American terms for the simple reason that the print version is published by the International Herald Tribune, which is the European version of the New York Times.

H

ere at The News, we use British terms to identify office holders. Hence el presidente Zapatero becomes Prime Minister Zapatero and we don't call Parliament Congress or the Upper House the Senate, as they do in Spanish – Congreso and Senado. Likewise we call diputados MPs and the senadores are members of the Upper House.

I

'm not quite sure what happened here, although we must bear in mind that the Spanish insist on being different. The political system is what the Constitution calls a parliamentary monarchy so King Juan Carlos is head of state and his second-in-command should be a prime minister not a president. However, a prime minister is essentially the first among equals, and this may not go down well in a country where everybody wants to be top dog. I'm not being rude or slagging off the Spanish. I only wish I had €100 for every time a Spaniard has said to me, “Scratch a Spaniard's skin and you'll find a little Franco underneath”.

And the winner is ….

M

ariano Rajoy, according to all the opinion polls – and it looks as if the Partido Popular leader will get an outright majority to boot. All I know is he's acting more and more like a great statesman with every passing day, while warning the party faithful not to be too complacent.

I

get the feeling that people are tired of the present government's fumbling attempts to solve the economic crisis – which admittedly isn't at all that easy to solve. However, most people seem to accept that a lot of belt-tightening is called for – they just want a government that will take focused action. The PP's leader in Andalucia, Javier Arenas put it very succinctly in a speech to a party rally on Sunday in Granada that a PP government would be the “most austere the country had ever had” but without touching those four sacred cows – health education, social services and pensions. Another thing that people haven't forgotten is that José Maria Aznar cleared up the huge deficit the Socialists left him in 1996 and handed over an extremely healthy economy to Zapatero in 2004.

Other predictions

T

he translation of these terms has been bugging me for a long time now but I've decided we should follow the British nomenclature to make it simpler for our readers. People who want to read the daily news highlights in English can google ElPais.es which will bring up the front page. The English version is on the right-hand side of the blue bar listing the different sections. Only the top three or four stories are translated on a daily basis and the spelling can be a bit quirky. Someone decided recently to use the word protestors rather than protesters because – I was told – it's more in line with demonstrators. In fact, both spellings are correct, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, but I prefer the version we're all used to. But I digress, so let's get back to that election.

Crisis in the classrooms

Rosa Diez

T

he El Pais survey published on Monday which gives the PP a solid lead in the November 20th election also predicts that Rosa Diez's UP&D and the Izquierda Unida (IU, United Left) are likely to pick up disillusioned Socialist votes. Rosa Diez founded the party just six months before the 2008 election and got one seat. A Basque herself and a Euro-MP at the time, she broke with the Socialist Party when Zapatero started to talk to the terrorist group ETA. She also talks a lot of sense – which is why she has been able to gain in just four years the support it's taken the IU 18 years to win. Right on, Rosa.

T

he crisis in the school system in four regions is expected to become another ingredient in a social bomb already about to explode and no doubt rip through the markets. In Madrid, thousands of public school teachers are expected to begin today (Wednesday) the first of a series of demonstrations throughout the region to protest against premier Esperanza Aguirre’s attempt to introduce deep cuts in the costs of providing education to the community’s estimated 650,000 of the 1.1 million students who attend public school. The Popular Party leader wants to raise the number of teaching hours from 18 to 20 per week for secondary school teachers, which would mean that, according to the unions, as many as 3,500 substitute teachers and teachers’ aides will be out of a job because they will no longer be needed to fill the two-hour gap per week. The PP-led regional government says it will save up to €80 million for the upcoming school year. But in effect, Aguirre is acting like a company boss, slashing payroll and allowing the cash-strapped central government to take up the financial burden by paying out unemployment benefits. Similar cutbacks are being proposed in CastillaLa Mancha, Galicia and Navarre.

O

n Monday, as the teachers’ groups were meeting to set dates for their series of strikes, Aguirre accused the opposition, specifically the Socialist and United Left (IU) parties, as well as the May 15th Movement and the artists and intellectuals (collectively known as “those of the eyebrow,” as they promoted themselves in support of Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero during his 2008 re-election campaign) for spreading “falsehoods” about the firings. In her Twitter account, Aguirre wrote that the “only thing” she did was to raise classroom hours from 18 to 20 but she made no mention about job cutbacks.

T

eachers argue that more hours and bigger classrooms would mean less individual time with the students and poorer learning standards. Their detractors say that public school instructors have the best jobs in the country, with excellent pay and generous holiday periods. Madrid’s education chief Lucía Figar insisted that teachers will get paid for those additional hours and said that the regional government has earmarked €10.3 million for the extra pay. But also fuelling their anger is the fact that the teachers will have to face periodic inspections by supervisors who will ensure that they are remaining in the classroom those extra two hours. Furious teachers’ unions have decided to go on the offensive – with some help from the May 15th Movement – and will also shut down classrooms on September 20th and 21st.

I

n the bigger picture of things, the demonstrations can actually be seen as mirror images of the volatile protests that are taking place in Greece, a nation that is on the verge of financial collapse. Social tensions in the Greek capital sparked violent clashes over the weekend between police and striking taxi drivers and tax collectors. They are protesting against a host of austerity measures, including higher VAT and property taxes, being put into place by the Socialist government of Prime Minister George Papandreou in a desperate effort to prevent a Greek default. It is only a matter of time for the protests in Madrid to swell.

W

ith a conservative but combative Popular Party government – less open to dialogue than the Socialists have been – set to win the general election on November 20th, social tensions fuelled by workers, students and other disgruntled citizens can only be expected to get worse.

Gibraltar

News Marriage - Gib style You can get married on Gibraltar but there are rules and regulations that have to be followed. Here we have the first part to let you know how to go about it. In Gibraltar, the marriage between a man and a woman is provided for under the Gibraltar Marriage Act. Under its provisions it is possible, by means of a Special License granted under Section 13 of the Act, for residents and nonresidents alike to marry in Gibraltar without the need of having to reside in Gibraltar for any length of time – although for administrative purposes a minimum notice of one working day is required. It also enables civil ceremonies to be conducted at approved locations outside the Registry outside working hours and at weekends. If you are resident in Gibraltar and your intention is to be married in a place of worship or in the Marriage Registry without a Special Licence, you will need to give notice of your intended marriage either to a Minister registered under Section 5 of the Act or to the Marriage Registrar, whichever is applicable. You will need to give at least 21 days notice, in the case of a Registry wedding or allow for the publication of the banns if you are to be married in a place of worship. GENERAL CONDITIONS FOR MARRIAGE AND DOCUMENTS REQUIRED In order to get married at the Marriage Registry or by means of a Special Licence, you must be able to satisfy the Registrar that you are free to marry by completing affidavits and signing them before a Commissioner for Oaths or a Notary Public of your choice in Gibraltar. A list of registered Commissioner for Oaths or Notary Publics will be provided by the Registry upon request. Please remember however, that a Commissioner for Oaths and a Notary Public will charge you for their services. ALL DOCUMENTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED TRANSLATION IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. In addition couples wishing to get married will have to prove their identity by providing the Registrar with originals of the following: (A) SINGLE PERSONS Passport or national identity card in the case of an EEA national; Full birth certificate. (B) WIDOWS AND WIDOWERS Passport or national identity card in the case of an EEA national; Full birth certificate; Previous marriage certificate; The death certificate of your spouse (C) PERSONS WHO HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY MARRIED Passport or national identity card in the case of an EEA national; Full birth certificate; Previous marriage certificate; Final and absolute divorce decree or certificate of annulment of your previous marriage. (D) CHANGE OF NAME If you have changed your name by deed poll or in some other way, you should produce your change of name deed. (part two next week)

On Friday 9th September, the Minister for the Environment and Tourism the Hon. E. M. Britto presented Royal Life Saving Society certificates and First Aid certificates to the beach lifeguards who were successful in completing these programmes this year. A total of 21 received their RLSS National Beach Lifeguard qualification and Life Support 3 award and all received their GHA First Aid certificate. The lifeguard service is an integral part of the Gibraltar Tourist Board’s beach programme as it increases the safety at Gibraltar’s beaches. Throughout the summer, several rescues have been carried out and these have sometimes been under very difficult

conditions and credit must be given to these mostly young lifesavers who are prepared to put their lives at risk for others. Apart from the rescues at sea, a myriad of minor incidents are also dealt with, such as jellyfish stings, cuts and bruises and even bee stings. At the event, Minister Britto also presented to Jamie Rocca the Giovanni Sene Award, sponsored by the RLSS Gibraltar, for the best new lifeguard. The lifeguard service would not be possible without the continued commitment of Nobby Sene and his team from RLSS Gibraltar, the GHA Ambulance Service instructors and the Royal Gibraltar Police who all support the GTB in providing this service.

Community No fires yet please! There are certain times of the year when it is actually illegal to have a fire of any sort in Andalucia, and yes, that includes those who think they can have “just a little fire to burn my garden rubbish”. Every year as soon as it rains for a day or we hit September 1st, there are fires springing up all over the place – Spanish, British and everybody else seem to suspend common sense and become pyromaniacs. The fact is that the campo at this time of year is still a tinderbox waiting to go up with all our houses etc with it so, please, can everybody show a little bit of common sense and not light fires until we’ve had at least a few days of rain and everywhere has been damped down. What has happened in the campo around Mijas and Calahonda can easily happen elsewhere and all it takes is one small spark to set it off – just because you

think it wouldn’t be your fire to do it because you have a hose standing by if it gets out of hand doesn’t mean that the sparks that go up with the smoke won’t do it. The other thing, of course, is that if you are a smoker, be aware that the little pull-out or pop-up boxes in your car are not necessarily there for change for the parking meter! They are ashtrays to put your cigarette out in. Do not flick them out of the

window as you’re going along on to the verge and merrily carry on your journey – it would be your fault if a fire starts as a result of chucking out your fag end. Keep yourselves, your neighbours, all the animals and the people that have to fight these fires safe! The photo was taken by one of our advertisers, Reece, from Reece Electronics and sent in by Bryce Franken Publicidad.

90 years for Sydney and RBL At the recent meeting of the Royal British Legion, Coin Branch, 64 members and friends celebrated the birthday of its esteemed vice president Sydney Knowles who was 90 years old on the 3rd September. It was a happy coincidence that Sydney's birthday fell in the same year as the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion. Sydney's amazing exploits during World War II fascinated everyone, especially those members who had read his book

'Diver in the Dark'. At the meeting Sydney was presented with a plaque and a card signed by all the members and he then made the first cut in his birthday cake. Pictured are Sydney and Vice Chairman of the Coin Branch, Denise Walker,

who presented Sydney with the plaque and card.

By the light of 20,000 candles

Written by Jean Joss

The fifteenth Luna Mora festival in Guaro attracted thousands of visitors last weekend and it's on again on Friday and Saturday this week. magic to the village as darkness falls. There are evening workshops, street theatre and street performers (check out the fire eater, if you dare) and story-telling by candlelight – 1001 nights with Sherezade on Friday and fantasies by Arturo Abad on Saturday

(there are two sessions each night, one at 8pm for the children and one at midnight for adults). And, of course, there is food – what fiesta would be without it? The town's new auditorium – purpose built as an open-air amphitheatre – is the venue for the nightly concerts, starting at 11pm. On Friday the glamorous Mónica Naranjo (Madame Noir) will be on stage and on Saturday it is the turn of local favourite Palbo Alborán singing in his own distinctive Andaluz style. Tickets for both concerts can be obtained on the internet from www.malagaentradas.com (There are pictures of the

artistes on this website.) With so many people converging on the small town of Guaro access has been restricted and only emergency services and those with tickets for the concerts will be allowed through Monda. All other visitors should come via Coin where there are clear directions to the parking areas.

There is a car park outside the town for 4,000 cars with a regular bus service into and out of the centre.

This will run from 6pm until 5am, so you can make a night of it if you want to!

MoViES to WAtcH out FoR

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy By Tomas Alfredson starring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy For some of us of a certain age mention the name George Smiley, the plumply bland spymaster, and the vision of Alec Guinness pops into the mind. He made the role his own in the BBC televised drama.

The story is set in 1973 and Smiley, the former spymaster, is brought out of retirement to investigate suspicions that a Russian mole is operating at the very highest level of British intelligence.

Gary Oldman took the decision not to view that original series when he was preparing for this role and, for all that he has a tough job to follow on from Guinness, he too makes the role his own.

Just who is the traitor? The main suspects are smooth womaniser Bill Haydon (Colin Firth), the complacent Percy Allenine (Toby Jones), soldier Roy Bland (Ciaran Hands), and devious Toby Esterhase

(David Dencik). It's complex, and a group of expert actors bring all their skills to the table in this classic Cold War tale of honour and betrayal. And of course, it is set in the 70s, so don't expect all action super-slick effects a la Bourne or Mission Impossible. The critics are touting Oldman's performance as Smiley for next year's awards, and about time too. Oldman has made his mark in recent years with

supporting roles in two of the biggest cinema franchises – as Sirius Black in the Potter saga, and Commissioner Gordon in the Christian Bale Batman movies. Not once during his career as an actor has he received an award nomination – though he did receive nominations as director for Nil by Mouth. So it would be high time if he were to be nominated for this classy performance of the inscrutable Smiley. A must-see.

“Fright Night” is based on the 1985 film of the same name. Personally, I didn't particularly care about the original. It was okay, but I didn't think it was anything special. The mix of horror and comedy has given it a dedicated following over the years. I've never seen the sequel, but everything I've heard says it's pretty bad. Now, remakes and reboots are all the rage, especially if they are a movie from the 80s. Many of these remakes have been merely okay at best, and most are pointless. So how does this remake stand up? Incredibly well, in fact.

T

he movie has been updated with contemporary themes, instead of large Gothic mansions set in some anonymous suburb, this is set in regular homes near Las Vegas. There's a lot played with the last decade's housing boom and subsequent crash. Real life problems such as foreclosures and abandoned houses put a modern twist on classic vampire lore. This makes this version much more relatable to modern audiences. The famous Vegas nightlife and spectacle shows play a big role in the film and complement vampire lore in a modern way perfectly.

T

he cast is good all around. No one falls short. Anton Yelchin handles being the centre of the movie, as the insecure and semi-neurotic

but undeniably likable teen hero. The two standout performances are by David Tennan as Peter Vincent and Colin Farrell as Jerry Dandrige. Tennan brings some of Russell Brand into his version and makes a fun and interesting role that is his own.

T

hough it's Farrell who steals the movie as the villain, he's incredibly creepy but almost charming. There's an intelligence that comes through his performance in a Bela Lugosi's Dracula kind of way. My only problem with Farrell’s performance was he seemed to be overdoing it a bit with his eyes, I thought he was going to start doing an impersonation of Nick Cotton – “eat ya beans Ma’”. What makes the cast effective as a whole is their collective decision to play everything straight, where others might've been tempted to go over-the-top or cornball thanks to the material, which is really the stuff of B-grade horror films.

F

right Night is one of those remakes that easily equals, and quite possibly surpasses, the original. It wisely uses the original merely as a frame to craft its own story. Fans of the original should appreciate the modern script and twist, and it should be entertaining enough to draw in new fans. This is the kind of remake that movie fans wait for. Let's just hope that the remake of the sequel, if and when, is better than the original!

by Cathy Stronach

There is a rebellious streak rising within you this week - perhaps you are fed up of the day-to-day routines and desire more action and adventure in your life? As long as you don’t get reckless this can be a very productive time when you try out some new ideas, go to different places and mingle with a new circle of acquaintances. Your powers of intuition are strong right now so listen to your inner voice when it comes to making a decision. A great deal of your time has been spent planning, preparing and thinking about the future, you have been trying to come up with ways to fix something and make it better than the way you found it. This week you will not only figure out a way to improve your situation, focus and direction you will also see that it is done. All the efforts you are making, emotionally and mentally, are going to pay off. Make sure you look the part in any business interactions. Decisions cannot be put off any longer; you have come to the end of the line with your mind telling you one thing and your emotions telling you a different story. You could find yourself dealing with those who feel exactly the opposite to you, this will allow you to see the flip side of the coin, that there are two sides to every scenario. This a time when you must take action, not sit around and wait for things to happen. Go for it, Gemini. This is the time to find what you enjoy doing and do it. You are in a process of transition where you are required to rise above the emotions and realise the strength and power within to make your dreams come to reality. Success is on its way, start loving what you do and where you fit in a situation and you will begin to feel that you have found your niche. There are some things that only you can do, some conversations that only you can have. This week is all about finding a balance in your personal relationships, being open and honest about where you see things heading. It is much better to be upfront sometimes instead of keeping something ticking along with no direction. Clarity enters your world and you may find that you have an inner knowing as to the direction you know you need to take. Do what you need to do and let your passions guide you. Your strength, Virgo, is your innate ability to see the whole picture and also scrutinise the parts, seeing things that others miss. Something inspires you and enthuses you into action, you can see on the horizon what potential is out there. Slowly but surely you are finding your way. Everything happens for a reason and you are gaining insights into someone’s behaviour and learning to understand their motives. Take the high road, Virgo.

Kym’s Kitchen ...you don’t have to be a chef!

This week’s recipe has been sent in by Ian Wooldridge, Head Chef at Kimbridge Farm, near Romsey. Great autumn ingredients are fused together to make this rich, fully flavoured golden curry. This recipe makes four servings.

Pumpkin and Apple Curry Ingredients: ● Sunflower oil ● 1 onion, peeled and very finely diced ● 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced or very finely diced ● 2 cardamom pods, bruised ● 1 small cinnamon stick ● 2 whole cloves ● 600gms of sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed ● 500ml of vegetable stock ● 2 tsp of madras curry powder (use a mild or hot one if you prefer) ● ½ tsp of ground ginger ● ¼ tsp of turmeric powder ● 600gms of pumpkin, peeled & cubed

● 2 cooking apples, peeled and roughly diced (use eating apples if you prefer a sweeter taste) ● 200gms of tomato puree ● Small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish ● 200gms of crème fraiche

Directions Heat a little sunflower oil in a large pan or skillet. Add the onion and garlic and fry for about 2-3 minutes. Then add cardamom, cinnamon and cloves and fry for a couple of minutes more. Next add the sweet potato, followed by the stock. Simmer gently and when the sweet potatoes start to soften, add the curry powder, ginger and turmeric with the pumpkin and apple. Continue to

simmer for a few minutes and add the tomato puree to the pan. Be careful now not to over-cook the pumpkin as it will disintegrate into the sauce. As soon as the pumpkin is tender, remove from the heat. Stir in the fresh coriander and crème fraiche. Serve immediately with basmati rice and nann bread. Garnish the curry with fresh coriander.

PISCES

February 19th March 20th

It is as if you have come out of a dark cave and your eyes are still adjusting to the light, you can’t see as clearly as you would like because the light is still a little too bright. In time your eyes will adjust and you will get used to living in this new setting. You have faced a lot of your fears and really there is nothing that can hold you back any longer. A lot of personal attention is coming your way so bask in the flattery and enjoy.

Take time to catch your breath, Pisces, and reward yourself with some extra kindness by relaxing and resting. You can only push yourself so hard for so long - however, your efforts have been worth it and even though others may not realise or notice the energy you have put into something, does it really matter? This is your time to come out of the depths of your safe ocean and shine – don’t wait to be asked just take the action you know is needed. Trust in your wisdom.

IT’S BACK - AND ON OVER TWO NIGHTS THIS WEEKEND

Contemporary lifestyle and celebrity gossip

Nice to see you... Sir Brucie and Tess are back on our screens with a whole new series of Strictly Come Dancing And did you see the look of abject horror on Lulu’s face when told she had been paired with lothario Brendan Foster? Brendan, who appears to end up romantically linked with everyone he partners for the dance competition whisked her off her feet, fireman style and carried her off up the stairs – and she still did not look at all pleased! Even judge Craig Revel Horwood – now a British citizen – said that he expects to see the sparks flying between the pair during rehearsals – Tiaras and Tantrums was his turn of phrase – so it should make for an interesting season.

However, moving swiftly along, with Lulu (pictured on the right of our picture) looking stunning for her age, Ms Dell’Ollio (Sven’s exsqueeze to the left of our picture) had so much makeup over her face it looked like it could be scraped off with a knife and watching them in rehearsals saw her huffing and puffing a bit. Having been teamed up with Anton Du Beke one seriously wonders how she is going to get on with Anton’s off-beat sense of fun. Holly Valance (in the middle of our picture) has been paired up with Artem Chigvintsev. The lad ended up living with his last year’s partner, Eastenders star Kara Tointon,

who said it is going to be “weird” watching him dance with the curvaceous Holly but Artem says she has nothing to worry about! The One Show’s Alex Jones has been paired with James Jordan while football’s Robbie Savage has been paired with his wife, Ola Jordan. He has apparently had to promise James to be a good boy! Anita Dobson has been sent off to learn with Robin Windsor and seemed very pleased with the choice while kickbox champion Audley Harrison will learn his new moves with tall, leggy, Natalie Lowe. The

What a Spartacus dies, aged 39 Downton vs. Spooks tinker! Oscar winner Colin Firth who plays MI6 agent Haydon in the new film of John Le Carré’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy says that unlike the Bond movies, this film tells the truth behind espionage during the Cold War between the East and West, adding that “audiences will be gripped.” The book has been done before with Alec Guiness playing an unforgettable George Smiley in the TV series in the 70’s. In this version, his character is played by Gary Oldman. The film's director, Thomas Alfredson, says Le Carre was involved from the beginning and gave him free reign. In a statement, Le Carre said he had initial misgivings about the film but they soon faded."My anxieties were misplaced. Alfredson has delivered a film that, for me, works superbly and takes me back into byways of the novel and its characters that the series of 32 years ago didn't enter." Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy premieres in London tonight and opens in cinemas on Friday.

British actor Andy Whitfield, who played the title role in the TV series Spartacus: Blood And Sand, has died of cancer at the age of 39. He passed away in Australia, 18 months after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. His wife, Vashti, said: "He passed peacefully surrounded by love. Thank you to all his fans whose love and support have helped carry him to this point. He will be remembered as the inspiring, courageous and gentle man, father and husband he was." Whitfield, who was born in Wales and moved to Australia in 1999, was a virtual unknown when he was cast as the legendary Thracian slave in Spartacus. The role had been made famous on the

big screen by Kirk Douglas in Stanley Kubrick's 1960 film but Whitfield's TV series proved to be a breakout hit for the Starz network and made waves with its graphic violence and sexuality. He appeared in all 13 episodes of the first season that aired in 2010, and was preparing to shoot the second when he was diagnosed with cancer. While waiting for Whitfield's treatment and expected recovery, the network produced a sixpart prequel. Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena was broadcast earlier this year, with only a brief voiceover from the actor.

But in January after Whitfield's condition grew worse, the network announced that Australian actor Liam McIntyre would take over the title role.

The TV planners are at it again and, while a lot of audiences would not be the same for the two new series of Downton Abbey versus Spooks, why do they do it? The ratings war is daft. If you’ve got a good programme, what is the point of putting it on at the same time as another popular show? You’d think

they’d have learned their lessons after pitching Strictly against the XFactor last year. With Spooks into it’s tenth season, Downton on it’s second is likely to come out the winner as many think Spooks (that used to be run on Monday’s) has run it’s time.

New uses for common remedies

Carrying on from last week’s journey into the kitchen cupboards for remedies for minor ailments here are a couple of others:

who consumed less than 1 ml per week. • Dark chocolate is good for the heart. A few ounces a week reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and may also help protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, according to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Researchers said minimally processed versions of the sweet treat are rich in flavonoids, antioxidants that could prevent wrinkles and cut the risk of skin cancer caused by exposure to sunlight.

• Extra virgin olive oil, when used instead of butter, keeps your cholesterol (and belly fat) in check. But did you know that it can also boost your vision? Studies show that the omega-3 fatty acids in olive oil help prevent age-related macular degeneration. An Australian study found that people who ate at least 100 ml, or nearly 7 tablespoons, were about half as likely to develop late AMD as those

“THE NEWS”WANTS TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS Send letters to the editor as part of an e-mail text to editorial@thenewsonline.es

Gill Scott I really appreciate your paper, it packs a lot, especially news some of the others don't seem to adequately cover, and fits in my handbag!! (for those moments in traffic jams, or waiting in the cafe, or for the train etc. – ie always to hand with common sense). For that reason, as an expat resident here for 46 years, I would like to suggest Ms Pilkington puts on the glasses that she's always holding in her picture (page13 Sept 7th). She isn't even reading the lines, let alone between them. There is nothing wrong with being right wing, I am often half way there myself, but do at least be right. With a multi-party system, a country is almost always governed by a minority, as Churchill said – I paraphrase – democracy not a good system, at best it's 51 percent of the population, the only problem is that all others are worse. We know exactly what brought Zapatero to power more than any other factor, which was the arrogance of the ruling P.P. party under Aznar to take those who vote for fools.

Fuengirola Within minutes of the Madrid Atocha bombings our P.P. mayoress of Fuengirola (Malaga) had leaflets through our doors exhorting us to wave at the demonstration she was calling for that cursed E.T.A. for the bombings, while even the dumbest bloke on the block knew this was not E.T.A. tactics and more likely Al Quaeda. After a series of similar insults to intelligence, the young and old alike (Future 15-M subscribers) rose to kick them out of office. A president's efforts are often noticed in his hairline and colouring, viz. Obama, Zapatero, and even right-wing, war-loving George Bush. Jose Maria Aznar's hair colouring never changed one fraction. And the only positive thing that can be said about that is perhaps eventually, when out of office, he shaved his moustache because his top lip grew tired of Grecian 2 thousand! Also practically everyone in the world knows that the current economic crisis skidded into being because of the sub prime disgrace officially suggested,

Confused Christine What happened to the weather? One minute I can hardly move and haven’t got a clue what to wear because I’m so hot then, last weekend on Saturday night, I

encouraged and blessed by the last Bush administration in order to scrounge the votes of the lower incomes for his second office. The P.P. under Sr. Aznar's puppet Sr. Rajoy, lambasts the P.S.O.E. for that and just about everything else including the weather....no really! The real ideas for improvement will get them the vote now, nothing else. It's time for some good statesmen to take the helm, whatever party. The "baby cheques"? I think the statistics were that the birth rate in Spain was dropping faster than anywhere else in Europe. Maybe Ms. Pilkington doesn't have children or grandchildren and know how much it costs and why young people needed help and encouragement to take the leap. Three thousand Euros was hardly the level of England where it is more profitable to live on benefits than to work. Hey, but congrats for putting by Ms Pilkington an intelligent adversary from El Pais, in the form of Sr. Martin Delfin!

As per the letter in last week’s copy of The News about the lack of water coming to our area of La Carreta in Coin, I would just like to say a huge thank-you for putting it in. I too went and had a look in our deposito as soon as I read the letter in Wednesday’s paper saying that we were going to be cut off on Thursday and, boy, was I glad I did!

that isn’t going to happen again.

that little bit of courtesy and let us know what is going on.

I noted with interest that your editor lives in this area so maybe she could send one of your reporters up to the Coin Town Hall to find out what on earth they are doing and maybe, with “the power of the press” behind us they’ll fix the problems in the area once and for all.

Editor says: I very much doubt that Coin would take any notice of us – they seem to do what they like when they like with our water in this area. It’s a pain!

Our deposito was nearly empty but I was able to fill it up before they cut us off which means that, even if I can’t do the washing, at least we can flush the loos! And, lo and behold, from last Thursday we have had absolutely no water coming down our pipes. Last time there was a problem, the houses above and around us had no water for some six weeks or more so let’s hope

We get no notice from the Council as to when and for how long they are going to cut us off either. There is no excuse for them not coming round a couple of days prior to cutting us off so that we can all fill up our tanks. They could easily just put a note on our gates but they don’t seem to bother. I can’t see why, if the Mormons and the Jehova’s Witnesses manage to do it they can’t show us just

Stargazing By Ken Campbell

If you would like to be kept up to date or take part in any of the events then go to www.kencampbell.info

Watch out! Falling satellites! In 1991 NASA launched a satellite on board a space shuttle called The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS).

I

t is 35 feet long, 15 feet wide, weighs 12 tons (about the size of a bus) and is out of control and due to crash back to earth this month!

I

t could land anywhere on the earth but NASA estimate the chance of any of it falling on someone is 1 in 3200. How they manage to come up with those figures is any one’s guess. Most of the satellite will burn up as it re-enters the earth’s atmosphere and only one or two larger pieces are likely to survive to make it to the ground, but throughout the entire 54 years of space travel no person has ever been hit or injured by falling debris.

S

atellites do return to earth regularly, as unused ones are allowed to decay in their orbit, almost all of them are controlled returns and are designed to fall harmlessly into an ocean. The difference with UARS is that it is falling out of control and so no one is exactly sure when or where it will eventually land, the best estimate is ‘late September’. Even two hours before re-entry, NASA will only be able to pinpoint the area of impact to within about 6,000 miles. But to be honest the chances of any of it even falling on dry land is so small that it presents only a negligible risk.

S

pace satellites don’t have any engines on board to keep them in orbit around the earth; they are permanently in a state of free fall. Let me explain. If you threw a ball away from you it would travel about 50 feet and then hit the ground. If you went to the top of a mountain and threw the ball much harder then it might travel a mile from you before it hit the ground. If you fired the ball from a cannon at the top of the mountain it could travel 100 miles or more before it hit the ground. Now if you were 250 miles up and you could throw the ball at 17,000 miles per hour, then the ball would pass the edge of the earth before it could fall back. As the earth is round then the ball would continue ‘trying’ to fall back to earth but constantly ‘miss’ the receding horizon, hence you would be in orbit constantly circling the earth. And as there is practically no air resistance to

slow the ball (or satellite) then it will continue circling the earth.

I

say ‘practically’ no air resistance but even at 250 miles up – which is the usual height for satellites to fly at – there is still a very minute resistance which, over time, causes the satellites to gradually slow down and then start moving in closer to the earth. Eventually the atmosphere begins to get thicker and affects the satellite. When this happens mission control fires tiny nitrogen jets on the satellite and nudges it back up to its normal orbital height.

T

here are approximately twentyfive thousand satellites and other pieces of space junk in orbit around the earth right now with, on average, two more being launched every week. They include communication and mobile phone satellites, GPS sat nav, weather satellites, earth resources, spy satellites, the Hubble Space Telescope, the ISS, satellite TV and spent rocket parts. The list is endless. If you go outside on any dark clear night and keep looking up you would be very unlucky indeed not to spot at least a half dozen at any one time; they criss cross the sky almost constantly. If you go to a website such as www.heavens-above.com they give a list of all satellites crossing your area. You will be surprised at how many there are!

O

ne final point, if you do happen to find a piece of a fallen satellite you’re not allowed to keep it, it has to be returned to the owner!

McLaren Milan opens for business The first ever McLaren showroom in Italy opened its doors to more than 250 guests last week, at an event hosted by McLaren Automotive Managing Director Antony Sheriff and McLaren Milan Dealer Principal Ado Fassina.

His team-mate Webber lost second place in the standings and conceded his championship was over following his crash with Felipe Massa.

rilling opener to new season

Superbowl Summer Pro-Am tournaments

What a fantastic start to the season with a one ball to spare win for Costa del Cricket Club team A, skippered by Phil Nuttall, against team B captained by Tony Crooks. Phil Nuttall won the toss and elected to field, hoping that the combination of his bowling compliment and the heat of the September sun would do its worst in the afternoon. However Team B set off at a cracking pace with Peter Winter and Gavin Flaxman plundering anything loose. The opening pair racked up 80 runs in the first 11 overs before Peter(32) was bowled through a combination of dehydration and lack of concentration. Gavin(with 34) fell shortly afterwards which gave way to a partnership of a very stubborn innings by Clive Lloyd lookalike Deryck Fraser and guesting Combined Colleges Skipper Nushan Alwis. Nush showed off his batting skills with a quickfire 50 before retiring. Tristan Cooper and debutant Mark Wilkinson continued the scoring rate closing on 200/8 off the 35 overs. This appeared to be an unassailable target and after lunch Team B looked as

Andrea Calvert has become the first player to win twice in the Superbowl Summer Pro-Am tournaments and must now play as a “professional” in any future events. The latest event held on Saturday afternoon, 3rd September was well attended as always. Although there were no firsttime bowlers this time the age of the novice bowlers remained very encouraging for the future of bowls on the coast. Andrea and her partner, the ever popular Keith St John (The Saint) got off to a flyer with a big win in their first game. Russell Borley and John Forrest responded with a big win in the second round leaving them just one point behind Andrea and the Saint, and by sheer coincidence they were drawn to play each other in the final round of games. The game between these two pairs was extremely close, the Saint drawing the winning shot with his last bowl of the game. The result of this tight game was to allow Andy Salmon and Joyce Boyle to come through with a big win of their own to tie with Andrea and the Saint at the

though the result was a formality when Team A were on 54/5 – with evergreen Alan Harris having to retire through dehydration and lack of match fitness! However the show wasn't over, Azrad taking up the gauntlet before being bowled. Re-enter Alan Harris who, after a short siesta, continued where he left off taking the bowling apart, despatching anything short of a length to the boundary, Phil Nuttall supported Alan and contributed at the other end magnificently This fantastic match went right to the wire with Alan Harris appropriately hitting the penultimate ball to the boundary for a three-run victory. This was a superb

game of cricket played in the true spirit of the game and the club ethos of CRICKET4ALL. Four of the 22 were under the age of 16, two were bus pass and beyond, and the teams encompassed six different nationalities – so a real mix of the cricketing human race!

Cavendish wins stage one at Tour of Britain The Manxman, winner of 20 stages of the Tour de France, last rode the Tour of Britain in 2007 when he won the opening two stages of the race.

"It's incredible to win the first stage and get the leader's jersey," he said. Russell Hampton (Sigma Sport-Specialized) and Pieter Ghyllebert (An Post) opened up a sixminute lead over the peloton after launching an early breakaway on a day of unforgiving Scottish weather but HTC Highroad and Team Sky worked together to reel

them in. Hampton and Ghyllebert were caught with less than 10km to go and Cavendish, 26, comfortably won the sprint finish after he was superbly positioned at the front by Australian teammate and long-standing lead-out man Mark Renshaw, who finished second with Netherlands' Theo Bos third. "If the weather had

been better we would have been a bit quicker but I think it would still have been the same result," added Cavendish. Stage two, Kendall to Blackpool on Monday was cancelled due to the very high winds. But the organisers have said that stage three at Stoke on Trent would go ahead as planned on Tuesday.

The next events will be at 3pm on Saturdays 10th 17th September. Any non-bowlers interested in playing in future events should contact the club on 952 81 77 13 or visit the Club in the famous Aloha (golf) Valley in Nueva Andalucia. Report by John Owen

played for fun and consist of three short games with breaks for refreshments followed by a BBQ and music. Club owner Jamie Ali presented the prizes and expressed his delight at the success of the Pro-Am concept.

A full house welcomed Malaga to La Rosaleda for the first time this season hoping for a better result than the 2-1 defeat in the first game away at Sevilla. Malaga had in fact sold out of all their season tickets well before the start of the new season. They were not to be disappointed and as early as the 4th minute Carzola netted from the edge of the box from a corner sent in by Duda. Malaga were on top and with Van Nistelrooy going close, it wasn’t long before Joaquin headed home the second after 25 minutes after some good

build up play. Van Nistelrooy went close again and just after half time a Carzola free kick went through the Granada wall to put Malaga three up. Malaga had it easy in the second half and at times it was being played like a friendly but they still went four up, when after good play, Joaquin scored his second on 73 minutes. Malaga continued to control the game in the second half to end with a convincing win and their first three points of the new season. Report By Scott Forbes

Djokovic is now 62-2 on the year with 6-0 against Nadal all in finals. Along with the Australian Open and Wimbledon tournament victories, it’s his third major title of 2011. Djokovic is just the sixth player in the Open Era to complete this feat joining the exclusive club of Rod Laver, Jimmy Connors, Mats Wilander,

the set went to a tiebreak, won by Nadal 7-3. Djokovic was treated for a back strain with massage and pills three times after the end of the third set. Djokovic dominated the fourth set 6-1, ending the match on a forehand winner. “I fought until the last point,” said Nadal. “I tried my best in every moment. I am happy with a lot of things, much happier than the previous matches against him. In other things I’m not that happy. But in general I think he did great. I had my chances. I really had my chances. I always had big trouble beating him here on this surface in the past. It’s not an exception now, especially because he’s doing better than ever. But you know what? I go back home knowing that I am on the way. I like to fight; I want to enjoy this battle against him. Six straight losses, for sure that’s painful. But I’m going to work every day until that changes”.

Womens final Samantha Stosur endured the longest women’s match in tournament history in one round and the longest tie breaker in another on her way to the United States Open final. All the adversity — the tough opponents and Tropical

Storms Irene and Lee — steeled Stosur for the worst storm she would have to weather on the way to her first Grand Slam title: another Open outburst by the three-time champion Serena Williams. Facing break point at 30-40, Williams sent an apparent forehand winner to Stosur’s backhand side. “Come on!” Williams screamed as Stosur stabbed at the ball, making contact. The contact brought into play the hindrance rule. Under the rule, if the distraction is unintentional, like a hat blowing off a player’s head, or a scream from a bee sting, the point is replayed. If the action is deliberate, as in this case, the point is awarded to the opponent. In Sunday’s final, Stosur defeated Williams, 6-2, 6-3, for her first major championship. She became the first Australian woman to win a major title since Evonne Goolagong Cawley at Wimbledon in 1980. “I can’t actually believe I won this tournament,” said Stosur, 27. “To go out there and play the way I did is obviously just an unbelievable feeling.”

Courtney lawes in two-match ban

Two Brits on the podium at La Vuelta a España Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins both sealed podium positions behind winner Juan José Cobo as Peter Sagan (Liquigas) claimed the final stage of the Vuelta a España in Madrid. On a landmark day for Team Sky, who were registering their best overall result so far in a Grand Tour, British pair Froome and Wiggins were confirmed in second and third, 13 seconds and one minute and 39 seconds respectively behind Geox rider Cobo. They are the first Britons to make a Grand Tour podium since Robert Millar's second place at the 1987 Giro d'Italia. And it completed a memorable Vuelta for Team Sky who had seen that pair in the leader's red jersey at various points of an absorbing race while the team also won two stages during the course of the three weeks, Chris Sutton taking stage two while Froome claimed an epic victory over Cobo in the race's final mountaintop finish on Wednesday. Since then the Kenyanborn Brit had done everything he could to try and overhaul Cobo's 13 seconds advantage but opportunities were limited and his Spanish rival held firm and countered every move that Froome tried in his efforts to gain the 13 vital seconds he needed.

England lock Courtney Lawes has been banned for two matches for "recklessly striking" Argentina's Mario Ledesma with his knee on Saturday. The 22-year-old will miss England's next two games, against Georgia on Sunday and Romania on 24th September. Lawes, who pleaded not guilty, will be available for England's final group game against Scotland on 1st October. Judicial officer Terry Willis said he applied some leniency because of Lawes' disciplinary record and "remorse". The offence carries a guideline suspension of between three and 12 weeks – converted to matches at a World Cup – but Lawes' offence was deemed "low end".

Simon Dyson wins KlM Open England's Simon Dyson moved into the world's top 30 for the first time in his career after winning the KLM Open in the Netherlands. The 33-yearold from York birdied four of the last seven holes to beat compatriot David Lynn by a single shot. Scotland's Gary Orr had shared the lead with South Africa's James Kingston going into the final day, but Dyson moved ahead with a strong round of 66. "After a wayward bogey on the 11th, I played some flawless golf," said Dyson. The Englishman had recovered well after an early bogey on the fourth to land his third Dutch Open in six years.
