WORLD What a world!

By Kym Wickham

Once again the will of the terrorist has struck and this time it was against a girl of just 14 years old who was campaigning for better education for girls in Pakistan. The Taliban took exception to this line of protest and shot her in the head. On two levels this is wrong. Firstly because nobody has the right to shoot a young girl in the head for wanting to better herself in a legal manner and secondly, who do they think they are to impose their beliefs on others? While I am not a believer that the Western way is always the best way and countries should be allowed to have their own identities, surely this does not include this kind of behavour? I think that if protests of this kind are done in a manner that does not harm others i.e. you’re not going around with a bomb strapped to you, then that’s OK. Only by allowing people to have their say does the world move on – maybe not always in the right direction but, at least there is choice. Having been educated in the UK where it was everyone’s right to an education – and I had a very decent one – I cannot fathom what it must be like for girls who have a brain in their heads to be stuck in that kind of situation, where all they’re good for is looking after their men and breeding. Fine if that’s what they want but, where’s the choice? The British Government now has the girl in a UK nHS hospital so that she may receive the specialist care now necessary – and, no, the Brits aren’t paying for it, the Pakistani Government is.

Hope and outrage surround Malala Ameena Saiyid, Managing Director of Oxford University Press Pakistan, said there "has been a national awakening surrounding her case".

Day of prayer Last Friday, school children dedicated prayers to her recovery in morning assemblies and she was also remembered during weekly prayers at mosques across the country. Many prayer leaders condemned the attack, including the chief cleric of Pakistan's largest mosque, Shahi Masjid, in Lahore. He called the young activist an "ambassador of peace and knowledge'". Schools in the Swat Valley closed last Wednesday – the day after the shooting – in protest at the attack. Rallies have also been held in Islamabad, Peshawar, Lahore and Multan as well

as in Malala's hometown of Mingora. The attack has also drawn strong widespread international condemnation. Prime Minister Raja Pervaz Ashraf visited Malala Yousafzai on Friday, the latest politician to do so, and has asked other political leaders to join him in showing solidarity. Army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, who visited Malala in hospital in Peshawar earlier in the week, said it was time to "stand up to fight the propagators of such a barbaric mindset and their sympathisers". Surgeons in the northwestern city of Peshawar removed the bullet that had entered her skull from close to her spinal cord and she was then moved to a military hospital in Rawalpindi for more specialist treatment. A military statement said a

panel of doctors had recommended she should be "shifted abroad to a UK centre which has the capability to provide integrated care to children who have sustained severe injury". Malala was flown from Pakistan via the United Arab Emirates by air ambulance, almost a week after she and two other schoolgirls were attacked as they returned home from school in Mingora in the Swat Valley. She became widely known

as a campaigner for girls' education in Pakistan as a result of a diary she wrote for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban, when they banned all girls from attending school. Hospital Medical Director Dr David Rosser said that specialists at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham were "in a good position to treat her" because they had 10 years of experience in treating UK military casualties – and her condition was much the

same as a "battle casualty from a physiological point of view". Once Malala recovers sufficiently, it is thought she will need neurological help as well as treatment to repair or replace damaged bones in her skull. The Taliban have threatened to target her again. She was given tight security for her journey to the UK and officials in Birmingham said they also took security very seriously.

Paparazzi could face prison A draft penal reform bill approved last week by the Cabinet includes jail terms of up to one year for distributing images of people without their permission even when prior consent has been given for the images to be taken. The most recent case of a violation of the right to privacy in Spain was the distribution of a sexually

explicit video taken of herself by Los Yébenes municipal councillor Olvido Hormigos. She made it for her husband, but it ended up on social networking sites. Justice Minister Alberto RuizGallardón told a news conference that the main objective of the Penal Code reform was to stiffen sentences for those found guilty of violent crimes. Other changes include a


reviewable permanent sentence, similar to perpetual imprisonment, with the difference that if a prisoner can show he or she has been rehabilitated, they can subsequently be released. The minimum period a prisoner must stay in jail before a permanent sentence can be reviewed has yet to be set, but is expected to be between 25

and 35 years. Such a sentence will be applicable in the case of murders by terrorists, genocide and lese humanity. Under the security custody section of the new criminal code, particularly dangerous prisoners may continue to be held in prison after their jail terms are up. This will be applicable to serious crimes such as murder, kidnapping, sexual



aggression, terrorism and drug trafficking. In response to this year’s record number of forest fires, arsonists now face terms of up to six years in serious cases, compared with five at present. Persistent petty theft such as pick-pocketing will now be considered as a crime instead of a misdemeanour and will carry a jail term of up to three years.

National News Prestige oil spill disaster case in court The captain of the Prestige oil tanker which sank 10 years ago off the coast of Galicia, causing the country's worst ever environmental disaster, went to trial on Tuesday. Greek captain Apostolos Mangouras is accused of causing environmental damage and disregarding the law. The tanker's Greek chief engineer, Nikolaos Argyropoulos, is also accused, along with Filipino first mate Irineo Maloto, who is not in custody. The fourth defendant is Jose Luis Lopez-Sors, who was then head of the Spanish merchant navy. The tanker leaked 50,000 tonnes of oil into the Atlantic when it broke up off the north coast in November 2002, polluting thousands of miles of coastline. Lawyers took nearly eight years to

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde last week called for financially strapped euro-zone countries such as Spain, Portugal and Greece to be given more slack to reduce their public deficits. All three countries are currently in recession, a situation that will continue into next year. Lagarde told a news conference in Tokyo, where the IMF was holding its annual meeting: "That is


what I have advocated for Portugal and Spain and this is what we are advocating for Greece, where I said repeatedly that an additional two years was necessary for the country to actually face the fiscal consolidation programme that is considered." The European Commission has given Spain and Portugal another year to bring their deficits back within the EU ceiling of 3 per cent of GDP.

British man drowns ousands support after yacht capsizes Spanish unity A British man drowned and two others are missing after their yacht capsized off the coast of Galicia. Police named the victim, who was dragged from the water on Sunday night by rescuers near the wreckage of a yacht, as Jan Antoni Krajewski, 72, a Polishborn Briton who lived in London. Local authorities said two others may be missing after witnesses who raised the alarm said they saw two other figures on the 30-foot sailing yacht which capsized and sank after hitting rocks near the port of Cedeira on Sunday evening. Police have video footage of the shipwreck taken by one of the eyewitnesses.

Cuts leave students without books Figures show that some 500,000 school students across the country won't be eligible for state aid to purchase their textbooks because of the stringent cutbacks made in education at the ministerial, regional and local levels. There are 8.05 million students attending classes this year – 136,000 more than the last school year. But the government has implemented cuts of €1.12 billion, which will affect those who rely on aid to buy books. However, the education Ministry said that 15,000 more students will be given grants this year despite the cutback of €185 million for grants. a spokesman said the average amount of the grants will be smaller so that they can be spread out to more students.

His 16-year-old sister raised the alarm and told police she had seen two masked gunmen running from the property. initially police thought it was a botched robbery but there was no sign of a break-in. They arrested the girl and accused her of persuading her 22–year-old boyfriend and a friend of his to carry out the murder. Both men are in jail.

PTA Confederation (Ceapa) has asked parents not to take their youngest children to school. The Students Union said on Tuesday that 70 per cent of secondary school children had

joined the strike, with the highest percentage in Madrid. Since 2010, the education sector has suffered cuts of more than €5,000 million, with the resulting loss of hundreds of thousands of teachers.

University fees have also risen considerably. The students are asking for the resignation of Education Minister Jose Ignacio Wert who said on Monday that the strike has been organised by the “radical extreme Left”.

Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner smashed a number of records with his "edge of space" stunt - including for live streaming. More than eight million people flocked to their devices to watch the 43year-old break the speed of sound live on Google's YouTube site. Google UK confirmed that it is the largest number of concurrent live streams in the website's history. Mr Baumgartner broke the record for the highest freefall, jumping from a capsule taken to 24 miles above New Mexico in the US by a giant helium balloon. It took nine minutes for him to reach the ground. The adventurer plummeted at an estimated 833.9mph, hitting Mach 1.24. Mr Baumgartner's body was monitored during the

The details available include photographs, names and physical descriptions of nine sex offenders the police have lost track of. Parents will be also able to enter their addresses to see if there are any convicted paedophiles living nearby. however, there are concerns about possible vigilantism and mistaken identity. The western Australia government describes the register as a balancing act between community safety and the ability of the police to manage convicted paedophiles, but legal groups have questioned how useful it will be and raised concerns about the potential for vigilante attacks. chile

They were located after two passengers took a chance and left on a 10-day trek. Sixteen of the 45 passengers survived in sub-zero temperatures for 72 days.

Cuba to end travel permits The government has announced that as of January 14th next year, its citizens will no longer have to obtain exit permits to travel abroad. Cubans currently have to go through a lengthy and expensive process to obtain a permit and dissidents are often denied them. Now all they will need to travel is a valid passport. Under the new regulation, people who have

permanent residency on the island will be allowed to stay abroad for up to 24 months, instead of the current 11, without having to return to renew paperwork. Cubans attempting to leave the country are usually branded as traitors or enemies of the revolution but the government now recognises that many people want to leave for

Britain to opt out of Euro legislation? Evidence is emerging that Britain is hardening its attitude to European legislation and could opt out of a number of cross border agreements with the European Union, including the European arrest warrant. Home Secretary Theresa May is to tell MPs about the move, which would please Conservative back bench members but would not be so popular with their Liberal Democrat coalition partners. Agreement on the issue is some way off. Prime Minister David Cameron has already

hinted that Britain plans to seize back powers and is to exercise the opt out, although Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said national security and public safety needs to be safeguarded before any agreement can be reached. Some MPs have expressed the view that a number of British citizens have faced unfair trials abroad and it was reported recently that a number of senior ministers have said Britain should threaten to pull out of the EU altogether unless important powers are returned to the UK.

very future of Scotland depends on their verdict. Mr Salmond says he has a mandate to hold the referendum and will be working positively for a ‘Yes’ vote, although early indications are that Scottish voters would elect to remain part of the United Kingdom.

Savile McKinnon gets reprieve inquiry Asperger’s sufferer and computer hacker Gary McKinnon, 46, from North London has won his 10year battle against extradition to the US after Home Secretary Theresa May stepped in to halt proceedings due to fears that he may try to commit suicide if the extradition went ahead. He admitted hacking into US military computers but said he was looking for evidence UFO’s. He would face a sentence of up to 60 years if convicted in the US. She also announced a shake-up of existing extradition arrangements, introducing a forum bar which will allow a UK court to decide if a trial should be brought here instead. She told MPs: "Mr McKinnon is accused of serious crimes but there is also no doubt that he is seriously ill. He has Asperger's syndrome, and suffers from depressive illness. The legal question before me is now whether the extent of that illness is sufficient to preclude extradition. After careful consideration of all of the

relevant material, I have concluded that Mr McKinnon's extradition would give rise to such a high risk of him ending his life that a decision to extradite would be incompatible with Mr McKinnon's human rights. I have therefore withdrawn the extradition order against Mr McKinnon. It will now be for the Director of Public Prosecutions to decide whether Mr McKinnon has a case to answer in a UK court." Following the announcement, Mr McKinnon's mother Janis Sharp said: "Thank you Theresa May from the bottom of my heart – I always knew you had the strength and courage to do the right thing." London mayor Boris Johnson added: "At last, justice and the well-being of Mr McKinnon have prevailed. To extradite a man diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome to America for trial would have been extraordinarily cruel and inhumane. I applaud the Government's stance."

David Cameron could order a public inquiry into the Jimmy Savile scandal once BBC and police investigations are concluded, Downing Street has indicated. Number 10 insisted it was still an option after Labour-led calls for the Government to set up an independent inquiry into the sex abuse allegations. A spokesman said: "Nothing has been ruled out, but our view is it would be premature to prejudge the outcome of the two BBC inquiries and the police investigation." Labour leader Ed Miliband is insisting that the BBC's internal investigations are not enough and the victims deserve more. "We need a broad look at all the public institutions involved – the BBC, parts of the NHS and Broadmoor. This has got to be independent." Police believe the DJ and television presenter's alleged catalogue of child sex abuse could have spanned six decades and included around 60 victims.

Al Capone was jailed for 11 years for tax evasion

Portugal to reduce toll Seprona chief allegedly organised illegal hunt

The EU has forced the Portuguese government to extend the 15 per cent toll reduction given to companies and those individuals living within a 20 kilometre radius of the

bridge connecting the south of Spain with the Algarve to all users.

The ruling arose from formal complaints made by the Spanish Federation

of Haulage Companies.

The toll charge will be reduced by up to 40 per cent on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays.

Autumn has arrived The cold wind from the west, known as the poniente, has dropped night temperatures to around 15 degrees C while day temperatures will not rise much above 24 degrees,

although there will be the odd day when temperatures rise slightly above the seasonal average. By the end of the week, rains will be sweeping down

from the British Isles, according to the State Meteorological Office, but will only last for a day or two and not all of the province will be affected.

New shop opening hours Malaga City Council is to allow retailers in the city centre to open on Sundays and national holidays and to set their own opening times. A council spokesman said the objective was to fill


the streets on those days, “when they are more like a morgue than a flourishing city centre”. He said the move was inevitable, given the growing numbers of large cruise ships which put into

Malaga port. “These people should be able to buy souvenirs no matter what the day of the week it is,” he said, adding that other areas of the city will gradually be incorporated.

All eight are accused of fraud, forgery and crimes against public health, while the Seprona chief faces additional charges of not investigating a crime and being involved in negotiations forbidden to public sector workers. It was some of the hunters who participated in the illegal hunt who tipped off the authorities about it. The charge of fraud

arises from the fact that the hunters who took part, for a fee of €80, thought the hunt was legal only to discover later that the money

had gone into the organisers’ pockets and not to the authorities who own the hunting ground.

Equity Release ‘e Dream’ When I first came to live in Spain and work as an Independent Financial Adviser, Equity Release Schemes were the ‘all singing, all dancing’ solution to the Spanish Inheritance Tax problem for expats who own a property in Spain. Not only did they in most cases completely erase the tax liability, they also offered retired expats the ability to boost their income by taking equity out of their Spanish property to spend as they wished. ‘The Reality...’ Upon completing my research as an experienced and qualified Adviser and ex financial services trainer, it quickly became apparent to me that these schemes were fine for as long as there were no dips in the stock market along the way, or worse still a ‘worldwide financial crisis’! Having done the number crunching, I could not see the viability of taking retired people from a ‘mortgage free’ and ‘financially secure’ situation to a situation where they were again at the mercy of a lender. I therefore took the decision not to recommend this solution to my clients.

‘Today...’ The harsh reality now is that there are many retirees who feel trapped, embarrassed, and unable to talk to their family about this situation – feeling ashamed, having fallen foul of the aggressive marketing techniques often used to secure this type of business. At Speed Financial Solutions, we take the care of our expat community very seriously and are already working for people who have approached us, unable to sleep at night in fear of losing everything they have spent their lives working for. ‘What can be done ...?’ We have teamed up with a prominent lawyer in Marbella and are working together to put our expats back into a mortgage free position on the following basis: Civil court action with a view to obtaining a ruling that declares both the mortgage loan agreement and the investment contract, null and void. The claim is to be based on the allegation that the contracts entered into were tainted with so many defects that,

by applying Spanish laws on the matter (financial, banking and consumer laws), would render them void from the very beginning. This includes two false concepts used to sell the products: 1. That by registering a mortgage loan against the property, it would reduce its value for Inheritance Tax purposes. 2. That by investing the proceeds of the loan in a certain way, they would perform well enough to support the cost of the loan (interest, commissions) and leave extra money, for personal use. Do you find yourself in this position, not knowing which way to turn? If you would like a free private consultation please contact us for an appointment. Alternatively, every Friday we run a surgery in our office in Coin from 10am until 1pm when our Financial Advisers will be available to discuss your own situation.

Like the Phoenix, the areas destroyed by fire at the end of August are already beginning to emerge from the ashes. Encouraged by the recent rains, oaks, pines and palmettos are already putting out fragile new shorts, as witnessed by a reporter from a local newspaper on one of the fincas affected by the worst blazes the Costa del Sol has suffered in a decade. Gamekeeper Francisco Cuevas showed the reporter how a 150-yearold tree had survived a partial burning and was already putting out shoots. This week, Infoca

Body of flood victim found The body of a man who was swept away in the September 28th flood in Pizarra was recovered from the sea last week, 20 kilometres away from the town. Fishermen spotted the body floating some 800 metres offshore. The Guardia Civil recovered it and took it to Fuengirola, where it was identified as the 60-year-old forest ranger who had disappeared in the flash floods. He was the last of the seven victims who went missing in Andalucia to be found. Another four were drowned in Murcia. Agricultural experts are still assessing the damage done to crops and livestock to work out the compensation for farmers, many of whom have seen their life’s work destroyed.

firefighting agents will begin to prepare the scorched earth and remove the burnt parts of surviving trees so that the autumn rains will be able to act more effectively for their regeneration. Several municipalities have begun to clear the paths used by hikers while barriers are being



constructed on slopes to stop heavy rain from washing away the topsoil. Gamekeepers are distributing feed for deer, boars, goats and partridges and report increasing numbers every week. However, it will be years before the devastated areas return to the way they were before the blazes.

Border delays unacceptable The UK government has condemned Spanish police for causing delays of up to six hours at the border with Gibraltar. Foreign Office minister David lidington called the hold-ups at the weekend "unacceptable", saying representations had been made at "a very high level". He said the Spanish government had told him the delays had been caused by an anti-tobacco smuggling operation, but there had been no forewarning. He added: "This current disruption comes at a time when there are tensions between Spain and Gibraltar as to fishing rights in Gibraltar's territorial waters." in the House of Commons on monday, mr lidington reassured mPs that waiting times had since been reduced to 20 minutes for people in cars and 10 minutes for those on bicycles.

Memo from

Voice Madrid Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Catalan week

Questionable comeback


Artur Mas, Prince Felipe of Spain and Jose Manuel Lara Bosch at the 60th Planeta Awards


bservers both foreign and national can be forgiven if they are under the impression that there is only one upcoming regional election – that of Catalonia on November 25th. However, there are in fact two more – in Galicia and the Basque Country this coming Sunday, but Catalan regional premier Artur Mas is making sure they get little media coverage. This man is even more of an expert than crusading judge Baltasar Garzon at grabbing the headlines, although admittedly the government and others are doing their best to help him. Minister José Ignacio Wert caused an uproar last Thursday when he said the government wants to “hispanicize Catalan students.” What he meant was that Catalan students should be educated in both Spanish and Catalan to help them feel proud of being both Spanish and Catalan. Mas immediately accused the central government of trying to turn the clock back to the Franco dictatorship. “They think we should explain the history of Spain the way they would like to explain it themselves,” Mas said, “but Catalan schools teach the history of Spain as a multinational state, not like the 'one, great and free' of Franco’s time." By Monday, the whole thing was turning into a farce. As regional premier, Mas had to attend the gala dinner held every year to name the winner of one of Spain’s most prestigious literary awards, the Planeta. Education Minister Wert also attended as did the owner of the Planeta publishing group, José Manuel Lara.


o there you had Mas, the Messiah who will lead Catalonia out of Spain, Lara, who has said he will lead his publishing group out of Catalonia if it ever becomes independent, and poor old Wert who still seems to be recovering from the shock of having caused such a fuss.


arlier in the day, Mas had threatened to take the demand for a referendum on the issue of Catalan independence to Europe if Madrid insists

on rejecting it: “If they won’t let us consult the people, what we will have to do is explain this to Brussels; we will have to internationalize the conflict.” The almost immediate reply from Brussels was that the question of EU membership for an independent Catalan state would only be considered if Spain requested it. I think it was just a polite way of saying – no way Artur.


he Catalans have been irritating me for years with their insistence on speaking Catalan on national television. This means that the TV stations have to take the time and trouble to translate their spoutings into the country’s official language, Spanish, which everybody but a handful of old people in the remotest areas of the Basque Country, Galicia, the Balearic Islands and Catalonia speak. These translations are usually run across the bottom of the TV screen without a voice-over in Spanish to help the slow readers.


n recent weeks, it seems that every Catalan from Artur Mas down has forgotten every word of Spanish they ever knew. Don’t they realise it’s not the best way to get their message across? I’m a quick reader in both English and Spanish and I have a hard time keeping up with the subtitles, even with my glasses on and sitting close to the screen. From reports in the media, it seems Spaniards are generally very slow readers. A fair percentage of them have to wear glasses and another smaller percentage can’t even read. They can’t blame us non-Catalan speakers if we just switch off mentally until the news gets back to a language we can understand. The Basques, being much more intelligent, don’t speak Basque when on national television and I suspect that many of the politicians there don’t speak it in private either. Current regional premier Patxi Lopez only started perfecting his grasp of Basque when he ran in the last regional election.

ith voters geared to go to the polls in two regions on Sunday, the elections in Galicia will be a bellwether of sorts for an up-and-coming political formation that has been organised by a convicted former banker who served a jail sentence for what was Spain’s biggest banking scandal of the 1990s. Mario Conde, the disgraced former president of Banco Español de Credito, better known as Banesto, is running for a spot in the Galician parliament on behalf of his group Civil Society and Democracy (SCD), a conservative party organised earlier this month that is calling for radical changes in Spain’s political and judicial structures. Conde is a bright man with bright ideas, even though he is plagued by a sordid past. The 67-year-old Galician has been making the late night talk show circuit explaining his ideas on why Spain needs to dismantle the dominance of the two-party system and set up a fairer arrangement that allows voters to directly select their own representatives. According to the SCD bylaws, supporters are proposing to eliminate public financing of parties and guarantee the independence of the judiciary by de-politicizing the court system.


he Conde movement has raised concerns in the Partido Popular (PP) in Galicia which sees it as a threat to the ruling party’s hold on conservative values there. It also fears that the SCD proposals – especially those calling for the breaking up of political monopolies in state institutions – could turn out to be heavy-handed electoral weapons at a time when Spaniards are profoundly frustrated with the system at hand. Conde has his own bone to pick with the PP and the Socialists. While he continues to maintain his innocence for the Banesto embezzlement, he blames the judges who convicted him for working alongside the two major parties to get him out of the way. This isn’t the first time this lawyer has tried to push for political reforms. In the middle of the banking scandal he had been proactive in trying to get his ideas across to Spanish society; even his close friendship with King Juan Carlos was seen as a threat.


n late 1993, the Bank of Spain took over Banesto after discovering a €5 billion hole in its books. Conde, who at 39 became one of the youngest bank presidents in Spain just six years earlier, was fired. Prosecutors later accused him of diverting some of the money to offshore accounts and using false

documents to make the transfers look legal. He was also accused in another money transfer scheme known as the Argentia Trust case and served 16 months before being released and again sent to prison for 20 years for the Banesto scandal following his convictions by the Supreme Court in 2002. He was finally released in 2007 for good behaviour. Now many are wondering if a convicted felon can make it in politics. But in Spain, almost anything is possible.


aintaining that he has proof that he was railroaded, Conde has written a few books where he pleads his innocence and lays out his ground rules for pluralism and institutional reforms. He has always been somewhat of a flamboyant character ever since he came on the scene as the dashing banker in the late 1980s, when he successfully headed off a hostile takeover of Banesto by BBV – the first of its kind in Spain. Known as “the shark,” Conde became the epitome of the excesses and jet-set lifestyle of the 1980s as Spain was just awakening from a nearly 40-year Franco dictatorship and discovering what a new life had to offer. Conde says he made a lot of his money in the pharmaceutical industry before arriving at Banesto, when he and his partner sold a company they owned in Galicia to an Italian conglomerate. It was said to be the biggest financial transaction to have taken place in Spain at that time.


f he should win Sunday’s race Conde hopes to use the Galician parliament as a springboard to the national arena, in which he hopes in the next two general elections the SCD will win seats in Parliament. But in the meantime the legal problems just won’t go away. The High Court earlier this month announced that it had embargoed four properties in Majorca on suspicion that Conde owns them through a ghost company in Luxembourg. The court’s reasoning for the embargo is that Conde has not finished paying his share of the fine and compensation he and other Banesto directors owe stockholders. He has denied this and has challenged the High Court to send a judicial commission to Luxembourg to find out who really owns the property. “Why now? What has happened? Haven’t they had time in the past 12 years? What is new?” he asks in a statement. “Legally, nothing new has happened. What is new is that I have decided to run in the Galician parliamentary elections.” It is all up in the air whether Conde will get his comeback.

Special Feature n 13


“Taking the Leap!” It all started back on July 30th, after a restless night’s sleep. I woke up and dragged myself to the bathroom. I turned and caught a view of myself in the mirror. “Oh my God, what is this Hulk of fat looking back at me” I thought. Yes, I know that in the past I had been told to lose weight by the doctor but I was shocked! Here I was, 32-years-old, looking at nearly 25 stone of monster, I thought. “How did I get here? What had I done to myself?” I have never been the smallest person but it never bothered me what people thought but that day it sickened me. I took a shower then decided to visit a social networking site, to see if I could cheer myself up. Usually one of the comments makes me laugh. The first post to appear was from Sandie Ashing, someone I had known for about six years but hadn´t seen for at least two (the type of person on your friends’ list that you never see but as long as they are posting you know they are OK). She was publishing results that she had achieved in weight loss from a process she was taking part in, called a “Hypnotic Gastric Band”. At this point I’m thinking “I want those results, I need to know more.” Automatically I began to type a message to Sandie to ask for more information. I told her “It’s for a friend”, so she didn’t think I had an issue with my weight. Then I waited… A few hours later I received a message back saying to visit /pages/ Hypno-GastricBand and that the whole process had been started

by Stuart Ashing, Sandie´s husband and professional hypnotist/hypnotherapist. I was to call Stuart to discuss my “friend’s” situation. This was it, I was going to have to admit it was me with the problem, what was I going to do?.. I fought with myself to gather the courage to make that Leap, to make that call to Stuart, the step to telling someone how I was feeling, what I wanted….. no…. what I needed to help me. I dialled and the ringing started… why was I so nervous? I knew Stuart, we had talked loads of times, why was this any different? There was a buzz and then I heard Stuart’s relaxing voice. Why had I been worried? It was just Stuart … but this time it was Stuart the hypnotherapist not Stuart the man. During this conversation, which lasted around an hour, my confidence in Stuart grew until the point where I just blurted out “It’s me there is no “friend”. I was shocked when Stuart responded with, “I know, I’ve always known. You just needed that to help you make the first step”. After this revelation, the conversation got to the point that Stuart asked the all-important questions, “What would it mean to you to lose weight? And are you fully committed to the process?”. My answers were simple, it would mean a lot as I would be able to do what I wanted, and yes, I was ready to commit fully to the process! “This is what I need from you” said Stuart “a one week food diary (and it does need to be honest!), and I need you to come and see us so we can weigh and measure you before we start.” The

quickly. My diary was complete. I looked at the list in front of me and thought it didn´t look too bad. The shock was to come when Sandie took the diary and entered it into a computer program she has, to analyse the calorie content and nutritional values, such as protein, carbohydrates and fat. It calculates your recommended daily calorie intake, based on your height, weight and activity level, and informs you what is required to maintain your weight and how many calories are needed to lose or gain weight (obviously weight gain wasn´t needed in my case!) and the date that you are expected to reach your ideal weight That was it – the results were in. My body, based on my height (197 cm) and weight (162 kg), needed 3500 calories a day to maintain my weight. My honest food diary had highlighted the fact that my average daily intake was nearly double that… I wasn´t just maintaining weight I was actually adding to it. I needed help and I needed it NOW!

This is the science bit… Stuart took me to his office where we discussed possible reasons for my over-eating. Back in December 1999, I had a major car accident, and the doctor had said that if I had weighed less, I wouldn´t have survived the accident. Bingo!!! That was it! That was why I had been

embracing the weight. It had saved my life and was therefore a good thing. In reality, of course, based on information from Spanish doctors, it was the reason I couldn´t have the vital operation on my legs and was ultimately going to be the cause of my death. At lunch, Sandie started discussing my food diary in depth, commenting “It´s all the take-aways and fizzy pop that’s causing the problems.” She didn’t know that I’m a trained chef and those take-aways were all homemade. “If you’re a trained chef, why do you eat so much rubbish?” she said. Simple answer, I’m lazy, if there is only me at home, I just grab junk food rather than cook. After lunch, back to Stuart’s office, where the “magic” happened. All I can say is, one minute I was there, the next minute nearly an hour had passed and my stomach felt different. That was it! I was in the group, I was part of TEAM HGB, and I was ready to take on the world…. P.S. The date for my ideal weight is 13th December 2013, which also, quite spookily, is the 14th anniversary of the car accident. Destiny or something more sinister!? (Pictured above: Adrian’s first step on the scales) More from Adrian soon.

e Battle of Fuengirola Play safe with Liberty anniversary this week

This week marks the anniversary of the Battle of Fuengirola which took place during the Napoleonic Peninsular Wars 202 years ago. The bloody incident fought on the beach at Fuengirola castle was between Major General Lord Blayney of Gibraltar and a small garrison of Polish troops and goes something like this: Lord Blaney's plan was to attack and occupy the then French-held port of Málaga but first he needed to capture the castle at Fuengirola. The castle was known to be thinly defended by just one hundred conscripted Polish troops in the service of Napoleon, sent there for rest and recuperation. Blaney's attitude was nothing short of arrogant. Presuming a swift victory he arrived on the 14th October around 2.00 pm with over 1,800 mixed nationality troops and demanded an immediate surrender. The Polish officer in charge, a Captain Franciszek Mlokosiewicz explained he and his men were in enough clubs already and they didn't want to join Blaney's. Then, after a few more choice

words he simply opened fire on Blaney’s much larger force, sending one of his ships, a gunboat, to the bottom and badly damaging another two. Somewhat put out by this unexpected turn of events Lord Blaney retreated – only to return later that night with heavy cannon. Poor old Blaney really wasn't getting the hang of this siege business and left his cannon under light guard on the beach in view of the castle. This presented too much of a temptation for the Polish troops. Sensing an opportunity, they seized the cannon and shelled the British forces and ships still at anchor. Understandably annoyed, Blaney counter attacked in force. The Poles retreated back inside the castle but not before they set fire to all of the remaining British gunpowder and ammunition. It was all going downhill badly for Lord Blaney with worse still to come . Unbeknown to him 60 more Polish troops stationed in Mijas had slipped unseen through the confused British line and joined their pals in the castle. Blaney re-stocked, re-organised and reattacked the Fuengirola

castle with renewed determination – only to be out-flanked in a surprise attack by another 400 Polish reinforcements and 30 mounted light cavalry French Dragoons who had arrived in double quick time from another second French garrison town, Alhaurin El Grande. Along with the now inspired 160 or so men from inside the castle the battle of Fuengirola was really under way. The vicious hand-to-hand fighting on the the beach inflicted heavy casualties on both sides. The outnumbered but battle-hardened Poles slowly turned the tables, routing the British forces and putting them under fire once again from their own cannon. Major General Lord Blaney stood his ground bravely but was finally knocked down and taken prisoner. The Poles relieved him of his later-to-be-famous sword and sent it off to their museum in Krakow where it still hangs today as a testament to the brave but bloody Polish victory over the British at Fuengirola on 15th October 1810. written by Pete Woodall Woody’s Los Boliches

Teach Your Dog To Eliminate On Command part 2 Teach him to poo when you want him to!

Griz This is little Griz she is such a sweetie, brought into FAMA just this week. She was born approximately on the 1st January 2012 and she weighs around 5 kilos. She came from El Paraiso from where she was rescued before being put to sleep. She has an excellent character, is a good girl and has no problems with other dogs with whom she eats and plays well. She has fitted into FAMA very quickly. We don’t think she will be with us for very long, she will hopefully find a forever home very quickly. For further information call Pat on 620 354 885 or visit our website at FAMA’s policy is never to have a healthy dog put down, they have a home with us for life, or until they are adopted.

The process of teaching your dog the command to eliminate is straightforward and simple – have him hear the command as he performs the behaviour. Then reward the behaviour. When you determine that he needs to eliminate, take him on his leash to the spot you want him to use as his bathroom. Tell him to go and “be busy”, continue to repeat “busy” until he does. As soon as he eliminates, praise him profusely and reward him with something that he wants.

Step one. Determine that he needs to go. Predicting when your dog needs to eliminate is fairly easy. He will need to go shortly after he eats or drinks. The younger he is, the shorter will be the time between ingestion and elimination.

He will need to urinate almost immediately after waking from a nap. If crated, he will need to eliminate after any length of time in the crate. In fact, putting your dog in his crate for an hour or so will almost ensure that he will eliminate quickly. A play session when Mum, Dad or the kids arrive home is sure to cause him to need to go. And with young puppies, you are safe in considering that he will need to be taken outside about once an hour during the day for each month of his age. More next week...

Situated in Las Rampas, the Cotton Club is run by French born Michel and is certain to be a sure fire success if Friday’s live music and ambiance was anything to go by. Mar, an electric acoustic duo from Malaga played an incredible set consisting of original and unique arrangements of the music of Prince, AC/DC, Lynard Skynard and many more. Hearing such well known rock numbers performed in a gentle folksy style was quite an experience. The Cotton Club has an amazing selection of beer on offer... over 40, from all over the world, Japan, Australia, the Czech Republic, Belgium,to name but a few of their countries of origin. If you are not a beer person, try one of the Cotton Club Cocktails with over 25 to choose from!

Michel intends The Cotton Club to be a venue that everyone can enjoy, so he will ‘mix it up a bit’ music wise, covering different genres every weekend ... Jazz, blues, soft rock, piano bar etc. The locale itself is very welcoming, from its subterranian fully stocked bar, leading down to the stage area, then further down to a comfortable lounge area with sofas and a grand piano … it is most definitely the place to be!

who are performing again this Friday (19th October), and on Saturday (20th) you can catch some blues and rock with the Mama Paul Blues Trio. The live music begins at 11p.m. and there is a small cover charge of €3. So for an evening of great music and atmosphere, visit the Cotton Club this weekend.

What’s on this week at Parka’s Scooter Bar

This Saturday, 20th October is a Mod and Crossover night. So, what is “Mod and Crossover”? Mod was the first true English R&B phenomenon. The most crucial Mod music was on what came to be known as "Tamla/Motown" (the label Motown singles were released on in the UK). The Mods, generally more middle-class folk who dressed in a collegiate style preferred the new R&B to traditional rock. The typical Mod song fused the harder,

earlier Motown R&B sound with traditional British pop virtues; as a result, the songs were slick, uptempo, yet soulful, featuring hard guitars and drums but also pop harmonies and, typically, sporting a cynical attitude about romance. Crossover music is when a song or album from one style of music –bluegrass, for instance – finds popularity in another genre of music sales, such as the pop music charts. This can happen when an artist who normally records in one genre "crosses over" to record in a different genre, or when a song in one style suddenly appeals to listeners of another style. So, if a band or singer would normally sing and play rock music, for

instance, they come out of the zone they’re known for and you may well hear something quite different. The largest figure to date for a crossover hit in the US has come from Grammy Award-winning country singer LeAnn Rimes, whose song "How Do I Live?" sold over three million copies and spent a world-record-breaking 69 weeks on the Hot 100 chart, more than any other song in history at the time, despite peaking only at number 2. It was also a massive hit in Europe. So this weeekend, to hear some truly great sounds that have never gone out of fashion, and probably never will, go along to Parka’s Scooter Bar for an evening to remember. Parka’s is at the bottom of The Strip’s hill in Calahonda and just a bit back from the road.

Go natural, meet new friends and learn new techniques to hire one for the morning. Spectators are welcome and refreshments are available. Make new friends, discover new ideas, and try new techniques. Discover why so many more horse people are

getting interested in going “natural”. For more information or to book your place, telephone Dawn Mason on 622 763 663 or go to the website

For all your Halloween supplies, Precious Moments have a frightening selection The One Stop Shop For All Your Halloween Needs! Halloween pumpkin n' party time! After the thrill of Fuengirola feria the buzz of the Halloween festivities is in the air folks! The Costa knows how to do Halloween in true style now!


TAKEN 2 Directed by Olivier Megaton Starring: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen This follow-up to the hugely successful Taken, a slow burner at the box office which became a word-of-mouth megahit, may have had the critics howling that it's not much more than a simple rehash of the first movie's plot, but that hasn't stopped it topping the Box Office in the United States and picking up big audiences around the world. Liam Neeson reprises his role as retired CIA agent and freelance security expert Bryan Mills. He arranges to meet his ex-wife Lenore (Janssen) and daughter Kim (Grace) in Istanbul where he is working. But the father of one of the kidnappers Mills killed while rescuing his daughter in Paris – as seen in Taken – is out to avenge his son's death.

In the first movie Kim was snatched by sex traffickers and Mills wreaked a bloody revenge on the Albanian gang members in a brutally slick, snappily paced movie that had viewers on the edge of their seats. This is an equally pacy sequel and after Murad (Rade Serbedzija) swears revenge over his dead son's coffin the scene is set for another lively romp but this time Istanbul

provides the backdrop. Lenore is the one who is taken, and Bryan enlists the help of Kim as he sets off to prove that he may be 60 but hasn't lost his lethal 'skill set'. Liam Neeson handles the fist fights and gun battles with the aplomb he showed in the first movie and everything rattles along in entertaining fashion. So, not one for the critics, but a sure fire hit for audiences.

Precious Moments –The Party People situated in The Centro Comercial Las Rampas opposite Dunnes Store and actually inside The Second Hand Book Shop on the upper level– is packed with excellent Halloween goodies. There is a ramp or pop up the steps to reach this delightful and surprising local store!

wings, haloes, horns, fabulous witches’ hats, cloaks, brooms, wands, tridents etc. A full range of saucey over-theknee bowed stockings, fishnet and diamond net stockings and tights. Fabulous false eyelashes, tutus, pussy cat, bunny, angel and devil sets. Fabulous cloaks, wigs, masks etc. The list is endless!

Now in their 8th year of trading their Halloween stock has become a speciality. Here they offer a vast range of stunning fancy dress for both adults and kiddies at reasonable prices. In fact this year they have managed to keep prices down again!

Decorations can be picked up here as well, webbing, ceiling dec's, bats, cauldrons, rats, giant spiders with red flashing eyes, flashing eyeballs, banners, life size cut-outs of witches, haunted trees, gothic prince n' princess etc, trick or treat bags, piñatas, mist makers, voice change boxes – in fact loads of everything horrid. Hehe!

Choose from their Fairy Tale, Dead Dolly, Zombie, She Devil, Witch, Chucky, Vampire Manor, Mad surgeon n' nurse, Fat Costumes, Ventriloquist Dummy etc collections. All outfits are fully washable. They carry a full make-up range, fake blood, scars, tattoos, fangs etc. All accessories are here too,

Pay attention to the details, check out all the facts and figures twice if need be as you are likely to miss important details as you check out the bigger picture. Base your actions and decisions upon proven facts even if that means questioning and challenging others to prove the claims or promises they are making. ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ is the key here, being strong and fastidious now can save you needless aggravation in the near future.

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

This recipe makes the most of the autumn ‘fall’ of fruit. A warming dessert for the winter days ahead. Serves six with custard or cream.


This is your week for communicating clearly and with ease all that you have struggled to convey recently. Saturn has stepped in and is reminding you that your words carry with them chain reactions so you are likely to pay attention to what you are saying. You may be inspired to start a healthier regime – all it takes is commitment from yourself to set the ball rolling. Where things have become out of balance you will wish to re-address them. It is all about the element of surprise this week, the shock factor, whether it is a clever idea or coming in through the side entrance, you are determined to take something by storm. A battle will finally take a turn for the better and an impressive chain of events will lead to a certain breakthrough. Something of primary importance will be finalised, a victory will be won to enable you to move freely again. Regardless of what might be going on around you there is a place of safety that you can retreat to as you collect your thoughts and assemble your feelings – you are being given a space of ‘protection’ right now. It is this type of protection that will allow you to step to the front and assume command and control knowing that your actions are on track for long term happiness. A passionate weekend beckons as you feel an energetic lift within. Conversations that have been left unfinished with words left unsaid will now have the opportunity to be clarified. Once this has occurred you will start to feel far more open and carefree, well able to soar above any negativity that is around you.

serves 6

• 6 apples, peeled & cored • Juice of 1 lemon • A knob of butter • 4 pears, cored & quartered & then sliced • A large pinch of ground cinnamon • 150 grams of caster sugar • 150 grams of walnut pieces • 200 grams of soft margarine, cut into pieces • 350 grams of plain flour • 150 grams of Demerara sugar Directions Cut the apple into pieces and place in a pan with the lemon juice, a knob of butter and four tablespoons of water. Heat gently for 4 minutes and then add the pear slices with the cinnamon and caster sugar. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the fruit just begins to soften. Tip into a 6cm (2”) deep, 26cm (10”) oven-proof dish. Using a food processor, blitz half the walnuts to a fine consistency like ground almonds and pulse the other half to a course texture. In a large bowl, rub the soft margarine into the flour with your fingers and then stir in all of

the walnuts and the Demerara sugar until well combined. This mixture should resemble large breadcrumbs. Scatter the mixture over the softened fruit. Bake in a moderate to hot oven at 190˚C (170˚C fan)/Gas Mark 5 for 30 minutes until the crumble is golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Sitting for long periods Mineral water slows can be bad for you Alzheimer's decline Remaining seated for a long time increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease and death, according to researchers at Leicester and Loughborough Universities. They said the opportunities for sedentary behaviour in modern society – such as watching TV, sitting in a car or using a computer are "ubiquitous". They added that although going to the gym or pool after work is better than heading straight for the sofa, spending a long time sitting down remains bad for you. They said: "People convince themselves they are living a healthy lifestyle, doing their 30 minutes of exercise a day, but they need to think about the other 23.5 hours.” The researchers arrived at their conclusion after analysing 18 existing studies involving almost 800,000 people. Each of the studies they assessed used different measures – for example more or less than 14 hours a week watching TV, or selfreported sitting time of less than three hours a day to more than eight. The researchers said this means it is not possible to give an absolute limit for how much sedentary time is bad for you. The strongest

associations in the analysis were between prolonged sitting and diabetes. There is evidence that being sedentary negatively affects glucose levels and increases insulin resistance – but scientists do not yet know how. The researchers said the study's message could help those at high risk of diabetes, such as obese people or those of South Asian ethnic origin, because it was an easy lifestyle change to make. They said there are many ways people can reduce sitting time, such as breaking up long periods at the computer at work by placing their laptop on a filing cabinet: "We can have standing meetings, we can walk during the lunch break, and we can look to reduce TV viewing in the evenings by seeking

out less behaviours."


A spokesman for Diabetes UK said: "Aside from any direct effect reducing the amount of time you spend sitting down may have, getting more physical activity is a great way of helping maintain a healthy weight, which is the best way of minimising your risk of Type 2 diabetes."

Drinking a litre of mineral water every day can prevent cognitive decline in Alzheimer's sufferers by removing aluminium from their bodies, according to a new study. British researchers found drinking silicon-rich mineral water "significantly reduced" the levels of neurotoxin aluminium in the body, potentially slowing decline in Alzheimer's patients. Aluminium has long been linked to the development of Alzheimer's but no scientific relationship has yet been proved. The patients who took part in the study and drank a litre of mineral water every day for 13 weeks saw a huge reduction in their aluminium levels, with a number showing drops of 50, 60 and 70 per cent.

The tests include memory questions and 'simple' tasks such as drawing a clock face – people with a deteriorating function may struggle to put the numbers in the right place. After 13 weeks, cognitive function in eight of the 15

Participants were also assessed using the ADASCog (Alzheimer Disease Assessment ScaleCognitive) method, which is a recognised 11-part test.

Alzheimer's sufferers had not deteriorated – and had actually improved "substantially" in three. The researchers said the "surprising" results gave hope to findings ways to combat this devastating disease.

Contemporary lifestyle and celebrity gossip Naughty people say it just keeps the peace

New app for smartphones … will it protect you from jealous spouses or will it just keep them in the dark? CATE has arrived in the UK. So what, rather than who, is CATE?

will not show up, even if they call.

The new app for your smartphone hides calls and texts from contacts that you want to keep away from prying eyes and, if you happen to be caught red-handed you can just shake the phone and it will all disappear!

It was invented by Neal Desai, who received funding from Shark Tank, a U.S. TV show and, unlike other 'stealthy' apps, there's no evidence it's even there – there is no app icon. Instead, users dial 4444 as if phoning a normal number, and the app's menu pops up.

CATE - Call And Text Eraser – hides texts inside a secret “locker” in smartphones that you can only access when the app is open. While it is running, numbers set to 'secret'

The app is available now via Android market priced at £3.22 and the makers claim that 70% of customers have been women. Worryingly, it has been downloaded and installed

nearly 10,000 times. And they are working on a version for the iphone but it will only be available if Apple OK it for their phones. However, if 10,000 have already been downloaded it seems unlikely that they will block it.

DJ AJ Plenty of Coffee Schoolgirl Amber Jacobs has made a future career for herself earlier than most – after becoming the world's youngest DJ aged just six. The youngster, from Pershore, Worcs, has a 30-minute weekly slot on her dad's radio show on internet station TBFM Online, where listeners tune in from around the globe. Amber's favourite tunes come from Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie.

Since opening its first coffee shop in the UK in 1998, Starbucks has racked up over £3bn in sales but shelled out just £8.6m in income taxes, according to new research.In the latest example of tax avoidance by a multinational company, Reuters revealed that for the past three years the coffee chain reported a loss at its UK business. As a result it paid no income tax in Britain – but over the same period, its sales hit

£1.2bn. By comparison, McDonald's paid a tax bill of over £80m on £3.6bn of UK sales, and KFC incurred taxes of £36m on sales worth £1.1bn. There is no suggestion Starbucks has done anything illegal – according to accounts filed with Companies House, Starbucks has made no profit in the UK over the past 10 years. And the name of their accountant is .....

My Tattoo Addiction

Tue, Oct 23rd 8:00pm

This documentary explores the world of tattoos; the artists, the reasons why people have them and what happens when they regret them. From a drunken dare to tattoo addictions, My Tattoo Addiction seeks to discover what people’s tattoos say about their lives and tells some of the compelling stories that lie beneath the surface of body art. There are over an estimated 20 million tattoos in Britain and full arm, leg, chest, back and even head tattoos are now more popular than ever.

news Your outlook on the World

Opinion & Comment n 27


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

R G Waugh You recently published a letter from me in which I contested the Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions, Ian Duncan-Smith’s decision that the UK Govt. would strongly contest the ruling passed by the European Court of Justice that ex-pat pensioners should receive the Winter Fuel Allowance. I wrote to Mr. Duncan-Smith expressing my views and I received the following reply on Friday, 5th October from the Head of his correspondence team. I would be grateful if you would publish the letter to update your readers on the view expressed by Mr. Duncan-Smith. 27th.September It reads :Dear Mr. Waugh, Thank you for your letter dated 8th September to the Secretary of State regarding the Winter Fuel Allowance. Government Ministers receive a large volume of correspondence and they are unable to reply personally to every occasion. I have been asked to respond. Winter Fuel Payments were introduced as one initiative in the Government’s commitment to tackle fuel poverty in Great Britain. To qualify, a person has to have reached women’s State Pension age during or before the qualifying week and be ordinarily resident in the U.K. By ordinarily resident we mean that the person must normally live here and not just be present for all or part of

Fuengirola the qualifying week. Under European Law some benefits paid in one Member State must also be paid to people who live outside that State but within the European Economic Area (EEA). In the past, to comply with European law, we only used to pay Winter Fuel Payments to former UK residents living elsewhere in the EEA and Switzerland if they qualified for payment in the UK before moving abroad. However, following a judgement in the European Court of Justice in 2011, this Department has changed its export rules. It is now possible for people to receive a Winter Fuel Payment in the EEA and Switzerland without having acquired it in this country first, as long as they have a genuine and sufficient link with the UK. I should mention though, that Winter Fuel Payments are designed to help pensioners keep warm in the cold British weather; not for those living in hot countries. Ministers intend to bring in a temperature criterion so that payments can only be made to British pensioners living in cold climates. There are a number of factors the Government will now need to consider before this legislation is brought before Parliament. Details of how the

scheme will work have not yet been decided. Yours sincerely, etc.

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 In my opinion it would appear the Govt. intend to ignore the ECJ ruling until they can bring in their own legislation to block it. Hopefully the ECJ will advise the UK Govt. that they must introduce the Winter Fuel Payments to ex-pats as of the date of the ruling. Any appeal or subsequent legislation should not have an effect on the payments being made immediately as per the ECJ ruling. And finally the people who think ex-pat pensioners living in Spain are not entitled to the allowance might like to compare the cost with how many millions of pounds Abu Hamzas Legal team have received in ta-payer-funded legal aid. Or the tens of thousands of immigrants receiving benefits yet having contributed nothing to the UK economy. Ex pats paid contributions during their working years, 44 in many cases, and still contribute through taxation of pensions. I will keep readers informed of any further correspondence I receive on this matter.

e Moon and Mars If you have a clear view of the western horizon tomorrow (18th October) just after sunset then you should be able to see a thin crescent Moon very close to the planet Mars.


s you look at the Moon you will be able to see the crescent shape that is being lit by the Sun but you should also be able to make out the rest of the Moon’s face, much fainter but still visible bathed in a ghostly ashen light. This is Earthshine.


f you have ever been in a very dark area at the time of the full Moon you will have noticed just how brightly it can shine, cast a shadow and even light your way. The Moon’s surface is made from really quite dark material and can still shine brightly in the night sky. The Earth on the other hand is covered in white clouds, it has white polar ice caps and reflective oceans and it is also much bigger than the Moon. So for anyone standing on the Moon the Earth appears as a very large, bright beacon in the sky, much brighter than a full Moon can ever appear from Earth. The bright Earth lights up the dark areas of the Moon so much that we can even see it from Earth.


ll of the Apollo astronauts who went to the Moon have mentioned how they were overwhelmed by just how big and bright the Earth appeared. And when they went to the Moon, it was obviously ‘daytime’ with the Sun in the sky too. Had they been there when the Sun was below the horizon then the Earth could have probably lit their way.


s the Moon keeps one face permanently turned toward the Earth then as seen from the Moon the Earth is constantly in the same place in the sky, it never rises or sets. It is only the changing continents as the Earth rotates and the phase of the Earth that changes as the Moon orbits us. When we see the Moon in its young phase – as it will be tomorrow night – then the Earth appears almost full from the Moon and shines at its brightest.


am always being asked if there is anything man-made on Earth that can be seen from the Moon? Well, I’ve never been to the Moon but the Apollo astronauts have all stated that ‘No, only the continents are visible’. From low Earth orbit city lights can be seen and The Palm Island near Dubai is visible

and although the Great Wall of China may be very long it is only a few metres wide and so it is not visible from space.


his will be your last chance to see Mars for a while as it gradually slips behind to the other side of the Sun. Because a Martian year lasts for about two Earth years then we are always playing catch-up with it. So in 12 months time when we return to this point in our orbit Mars will have travelled half way round in its orbit and so will still be on the far side of the Sun from us. We’ll have to wait until 2014 before it graces our skies again.


he NASA rover ‘Curiosity’ has been making tremendous discoveries since it touched down on Mars last August. This car-sized rover has been making its way across the Martian surface and has discovered clear evidence of ancient water erosion on the planet surface. Although there has been no discovery of liquid water currently flowing in streams, Curiosity came across what is clearly a dried up riverbed with rocks being eroded into rounded pebbles.


he Curiosity rover has the ability to fire a high-powered laser beam into any interesting rocks to disintegrate them and then closely examine the interior of the rock. It is like a self-contained remote laboratory that can analyse the soil and rocks. It can only be a matter of time before it finds pockets of subterranean water. I still doubt very much that any life will ever be found on Mars but the discovery of ancient water could suggest that Mars once had the capability and the right environmental conditions for microbial life to begin. Keep watching the skies! Enjoy your stargazing!

Usain Bolt“goes for gold”with Nissan

Usain Bolt is extending his partnership with Nissan – and the world’s fastest man has already helped produce a special one-off gold GT-R for charity. The unique GT-R, which is embossed with Bolt’s signature and features interior fittings finished in real gold, will be auctioned on eBay later this month to benefit the Usain Bolt Foundation ( Proceeds will help the foundation’s work creating opportunities for children and young people in the Champion’s home of Jamaica.

It’s Vettel again in Korea Línea Directa With a third straight race victory, Sebastian Vettel is suddenly closing



The Red Bull driver won the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday to move ahead of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in the F1 standings by six points with four races remaining, having erased what looked like a commanding lead for the Spanish driver just three weeks ago. Vettel started second on the grid behind Mark Webber but overtook his teammate on the first turn and never relinquished the lead, finishing 8.2 seconds ahead of Webber. Alonso was third, 13.9 seconds off the pace. "The foundation was there with a good start," Vettel said. "I wasn't sure because I was starting on the dirty side of the grid but I was able to get some good grip and get inside at the first turn."

Vettel, who also won the previous races in Singapore and Japan, now looks to be the favourite for a third straight championship title, something only previously achieved by Juan-Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher. Webber claimed his first second-place finish of the season but the Australian was disappointed with his start from pole. "The initial launch was not good," Webber said. "There was some wheel spin and from there I knew I would have issues. It was very mediocre." Ferrari's Felipe Massa was fourth, and reinforced his place for another season with the team with a strong drive. He was followed by Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen and Force India's Nico Hulkenberg.

Red Bull’s Adrian Newey takes evasive action

Lewis Hamilton finished a disappointing 10th, despite starting third on the grid, but it turned out that he had been suffering with a rear suspension problem for most of the race. Hamilton, who is fourth in the standings 62 points behind Vettel, even got a piece of astroturf from the

edge of the track stuck under his car late in the race. Lotus driver Romain Grosjean avoided the firstlap incidents that he was involved in at the Belgian and Japanese GP's to finish seventh ahead of Toro Rosso drivers Jean EricVergne and Daniel Ricciardo.

Pedrosa closes gap on Lorenzo Honda's Dani Pedrosa kept his slim MotoGP title hopes alive by beating fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo to win the Japanese Grand Prix for the second year in a row on Sunday. A fourth win in the last five races has pulled Pedrosa to within 28 points of the Yamaha rider but with just three races left, he still needs a slip-up from Lorenzo. Alvaro Bautista's third place for Honda made it a Spanish sweep of the podium at Motegi's Twin Ring circuit. Lorenzo, world champion in 2010, again failed to capitalise on his sixth pole of the season, leading in the early stages but never able to pull away from a dogged Pedrosa. It was the fifth time in succession that Lorenzo has failed to turn pole position into victory, the only time he went on to win the race was at the 2012 season-opener in Qatar. The Honda rider pounced 13 laps from the

finish and stretched his advantage to over a second within two laps of

overtaking Lorenzo. Bautista's third place came after a hair-raising fight with Briton’s Cal Crutchlow, whose Yamaha ran out of fuel on the final lap to

end the battle on a rather anti-climactic note. Australian Stoner finished a creditable fifth in his return after ankle surgery, although clearly not fully fit and still in some pain he struggled as the race wore on.

Whenever we find ourselves in a difficult or dangerous situation when we are driving we only have a fraction of a second to take a decision and carry it out correctly. Consequently, when drivers take the wrong decision, the number of accidents resulting in death or injury is tripled, as figures show that 73% of accidents are caused by drivers making a bad decision, compared to 27% in which they acted correctly. This is the main conclusion of the study “Decision-making when driving” in which 174,000 accidents resulting in injury or death have been analysed. This means that in the last 4 years, nearly 130,000 accidents resulting in injury or death could have been avoided if the drivers involved had been able to assess the dangers on the road correctly. The most common errors are due to drivers being distracted, joining roads incorrectly, turning badly, illegally overtaking and not maintaining a safe distance between the

vehicle in front. As for types of road, Línea Directa’s report confirms that conventional roads are the most dangerous, due to the fact that 76% of accidents take place on them. On dual carriageways and motorways, the most common types of accident caused by driver error are rear-end collisions and vehicle crashes, mainly due to sudden braking and the switching of lanes.

Driver Profile Men aged between 18 and 24 who have held a driving licence for less than two years and the over 65s are those most likely to be involved in accidents due to driver error. The former because they have a lower perception of risk and the latter because they have lost certain skills. On the other hand, women aged between 35 and 64, who have held a driving licence for 15 years or more are those who take the best decisions.

News from the Fairways Justin Rose shot a flawless 66 to beat Lee Westwood by a shot and capture the $1.5m first prize cheque at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final. Rose had beaten his Ryder Cup team-mate in the group phase of the eight-man tournament and was never headed in the final after sinking a 20 foot birdie putt at the opening hole to go one in front. In a match of high quality, neither player had a single bogey on his card but Westwood's inability to convert many good birdie chances eventually cost him. Rose, who won all of his five matches in the $5.2 million exhibition tournament, birdied the opening hole on the Sultan Course and led the rest of the way against his fourthranked opponent. The paycheque is Rose's highest in his 14-year pro career and $560,000 more than his prize in capturing the 2011 BMW

Championship. Westwood earned a check for $1 million for his efforts over the three days. To end the Exhibition all eight players participated in a Pro-Am where Turkish Golf President Ahmet Agaoglu was drawn to play alongside Tiger Woods. Agaoglu was at the center of controversy earlier in the week when he allegedly head-butted a journalist while trying to move him away from Woods on the opening tee. Agaoglu was asked if he was nervous playing with Woods. "I'm not nervous but what I want to do is make him nervous, as I will own him for the next four or five hours," he said with a smile. "I paid for him to be here in Turkey, so he's my property this afternoon." Woods was reportedly paid a $3 million appearance fee to compete in Turkey. He also earned

$600,000 as a semifinalist.

European Tour The first time Irishman Shane Lowry won on the European Tour he did not receive a penny for it, but last night he was celebrating a second victory worth more than £300,000. "Vilamoura will be rocking," Lowry said after beating stablemate Ross Fisher by one shot at the Portugal Masters to join Spaniard Pablo Martin as one of the only players to win on the circuit both as amateurs and professionals. The 25-year-old pulled off one of the biggest shocks ever in golf three years ago when he beat Robert Rock in a play-off at his home Irish Open. It was his first-ever appearance on the Tour, but because he was an amateur it was runner-up Rock who walked off with the £400,000 "first" prize.

Axarquia defeat the Army to win triangular rugby tournament On Saturday 13th October, Axarquia Rugby Club played host to a fantastic evening of rugby at the Fernando Hierro Stadium in Velez-Malaga followed by a social event at El Cruce Restaurant at El Trapiche. It was a triangular tournament involving the last rugby tour for the 19 Close Service Support Battalion of the British Army against the newly formed team Club Rugby Loja from Granada and the local Axarquia Rugby Club.


Wayne’s Poker Tips The big mistake most novice players make is wanting to be involved with weak hands in every pot, just limping into the pot, which means matching the forced bet of the Big Blind. Long term this is a losing play whether it be a cash or tournament game. If you can’t pump the hand, dump it! If you flat call with weak hands and then raise with a premium hand, this is a “tell”. You may as well let any player worth his salt see your hand. Of course there are times when you have value to flat call or for tactical reasons which we shall discuss at a later date. A good rule is: If you’re going to enter a pot and it’s

not been raised, then raise, otherwise if you can’t because it’s junk, throw it in the muck. Let’s say we have 7d 8d. I like these small suited connectors but I’m never going to limp with them, why? Well, if an A or K hit the flop we can bet out which is saying: “I have an A /K”, and the story adds up because we have raised. Now if a 7/8, straight or flush draw hits we can trap our opponents as they will be putting us on a premium hand believing we have missed the flop, don’t mind entering a pot as cheap as we can, the small or medium pocket pair such as 3 /3 or 9 / 9 – this is called set mining

which means we are hoping to catch a set (3-of-akind). This can pay well when calling a raise by a player with a premium hand especially if they have big AA / big KK / big QQ because the strength of your hand is disguised. As for big TT / big JJ 7 and big QQ, I would be looking to raise with these hands but don’t overplay them more so if a K or an A hits the flop. Remember to think: “What has he called my raise with?” Now with big KK / big AA, I am looking to get all my

Hillsborough tragedy set for new inquest The Attorney General has paved the way for a fresh inquest to be held into the deaths of 96 Liverpool fans in the Hillsborough disaster 23 years ago. Dominic Grieve QC said he will apply to the High Court to have the verdicts of the original hearing quashed so a new one can be held.The move comes after a damning report into the disaster laid bare a cover-up which attempted to shift the blame for the tragedy on to its victims.

Lance Armstrong’s ‘drug runner’ talks Lance Armstrong's lawyer says he would accept the outcome if lie detector tests were taken by witnesses who have accused the 41-yearold of doping. A US Anti-Doping Agency report described Armstrong as a "serial cheat" and a "bully", citing 26 witnesses. "I wouldn't challenge a lie detector test, with good equipment, properly administered," said Tim Herman. Asked whether Armstrong would also be prepared to take a test, he said: "We might do that, you never know." He added: "I don't know if we would or we wouldn't. We might."

Lance Armstrong's former personal masseuse told BBC Radio 5 live that she was used by the cyclist as a "drugs runner" in the doping scandal. Emma O'Reilly was also team assistant for the US Postal team and alleges that she rented a car in France to take the cyclist a package of pills. She was speaking to 5 live for "Peddlers - Cycling's Dirty Truth" a special in depth 5 live sport investigation that aired on Monday evening which focused on drugs in cycling throughout the Armstrong era. She went on to add "Afterwards, oh my, I've never felt more hunted in my whole life. There were

identifying several as "liars" – and he said he was "a proponent, personally" of lie-detector tests being used in the case. "Many witnesses have contradictory stories to tell," he said. "Lance had over 600 fellow riders, team members and trainers in his career racing in Europe. lawsuits that affected not just me but other people, like my boyfriend. Lance was calling me a prostitute. The libel laws protected him, the rich, while I was dragged through the courts. He was protected from me saying what has now turned out to be the truth.

"I knew Lance was bullying me and all I was trying to do was clean up the sport." Armstrong’s Lawyer Tim Herman maintains the information provided by some of the witnesses cannot be relied upon,

"Of those, 11 came forward. Many others would and have refuted many of the allegations. Other than Tyler Hamilton, Frankie Andreu, Floyd Landis and Jonathan Vaughters I'm not calling anyone a liar – but I am calling those four liars."

Heather Watson wins Japan Open Roger Federer Foundation Charity Day at Santa Maria Heather Watson has made it into the WTA top 50 for the first time following her victory at the Japan Open. The 20-year-old from Guernsey replaces fellow Brit Laura Robson, who is 52nd, as the British number one. Watson became the first Briton in 24 years to win a WTA Tour singles title by beating Chang Kai-chen of

The Roger Federer Foundation enhances a world where African children, living in poverty, are able to take control of their future and actively shape it thanks to early learning and education on a high level of quality. Its strategic priority is the support of existing, but poor support services, in early childhood care centres, pre-schools and primary schools for children 3 to 12 years old as well as the improvement of their efficiency and effectiveness. Santa Maria Bowls Club, in conjunction with its sponsors (Helicopteros Sanitarios and Mundomar Cruceros), has adopted the Roger Federer Foundation as its chosen charity and it hosted this triples challenge event to raise much needed funds. The event was extremely well supported and 24 quality teams, from within the Costa del Sol bowling community, were drawn into two groups with

Chinese Taipei on Sunday. Laura Robson's hopes of making the top 50 suffered a blow when she was knocked out at the quarter-final stage in Osaka. "Laura and I have come through the rankings together – juniors and seniors – and we're both very competitive, so when we see the other doing well, it pushes us," Watson added.

each team playing three games of eight ends. As always, in any roundrobin event, there were the usual twists and turns and many of the fancied triples fell by the wayside early on. Group A was won by Dennis Hanley, Bryan & Brenda Collier who, despite narrowly losing their opening game, amassed a total of 49 points thanks to convincing victories in their remaining games. Group B was much closer and two points separated the top three with Chic Young, Arthur Lees & Pamela Hatton securing a draw with Chic’s last bowl to edge out Don Smith, Frank & Pauline Ball.

The Group winners then had a two-end shoot-out to determine the overall winner with the teams playing a pairs and singles. Dennis and Arthur drew their game so it was the outcome of the pairs which was crucial. Chic & Pamela’s experience proved vital here and they won both ends played to win the event. However, as everyone present agreed, the ultimate winner was the Foundation and the children in Africa whose lives will improve so much thanks to the generous contribution of those who participated.

Gerrard responds to Patrick Vieira's England criticisms Steven Gerrard has hit back at Patrick Vieira's suggestion that England players do not love playing for the national team. The former France midfielder, 36, said he was surprised "so many young players" pulled out of the England team with injury stating "maybe it is a lack of love". "It surprised me to read that," responded England captain Gerrard. "I don't really care what Vieira says. The young players are hungry.” Meanwhile, Gerrard insists there is now "no excuse" for bad behaviour from players following the introduction of a new code of conduct. The 32-yearold Reds skipper wanted the focus on football ahead of last night’s crucial World Cup qualifier in Poland.


Red Bull deny Vettel will move to Ferrari Ferrari will retain Felipe Massa next season in what is planned to be a stop-gap deal before the arrival of Sebastian Vettel. Ferrari sources say they already have a deal in place with double world champion Vettel, with an option for the 25year-old to join them in 2014. But Red Bull team boss Christian Horner insists Vettel will not leave. He told BBC Sport: "Sebastian Vettel, without a shadow of doubt, will be part of the Red Bull Racing team in 2014."
