Not normally me I was on the radio last Friday! I have to say that I was a bit daunted by the idea. I co-own a newspaper and I’ve worked for the BBC but always just writing or being in the background. I was never in school plays but was quite happy to help out with scenery or make-up behind the scenes so, being on the radio was a bit uncomfortably in-yourface for me.

Wettest November in years kidding! We live in the campo and the rains at the weekend managed to virtually destroy our camino. Luckily my car has the sort of suspension that goes up and down so on high level with a maximum of 10mph I could still get out and about although I did get the water over my wellieshoes when the road in Alhaurin el Grande turned into a river on my way to my genealogy class – I was walking in puddles – yeuk!! Talking of which .... someone said to me last week that my mention of the class was an advert for someone. It wasn’t. It was a six-week course that was part of the u3A Inland group and Russell did the classes voluntarily. unfortunately, it’s now finished but was absolutely fascinating and I’ve learnt how to find out loads of stuff without costing me a fortune. I’ve also found evidence of my never-met half-brothers. Now I just have to find them!

In just three weeks, more than 200 litres per square metre had fallen in 12 hours at the airport, the reference point for measuring rainfall. However, that is still short of the record 497 litres that fell in November 1989, causing the worst floods the city has ever known. Last Saturday’s downpour – when 112 litres per square metre fell in just three and a half hours – highlighted the city’s deficient drainage system as well as the fact that the city’s normally dry stream beds were too clogged up with vegetation and rubbish to be able to cope with the water unleashed by the heavens. The Malaga Meteorological Centre’s chief weatherman, Fausto Polvorinos, said Saturday’s downpour was caused by winds from both East and West meeting over the city, causing the storm that produced 400 flashes of lightning between 7 am and 1 pm. On Monday, City Mayor Francisco de la Torre announced a plan to build a

Majority may elude Mas on Sunday According to the results of a Metroscopia survey carried out for the El Pais daily, AÍS, Catalan premier Artur Mas and his centreright nationalist CiU coalition will fall short of the 68 seats needed for an absolute majority in regional elections to be held on Sunday. According to the poll, CiU will get slightly fewer votes than it did in 2010 at 37.3 per cent, which would give it 62 seats, the same number it currently possesses. During his campaign, Mas has stated that the referendum he wants on independence will take place only if he enjoys “an exceptional majority,” at the ballot box. The Catalan

Socialist Party (PSC) is expected to suffer as badly as its sister parties did in recent elections in Galicia and the Basque Country, according to the poll – to become the third regional force, behind the Partido Popular, and could even be beaten into fourth place by the Catalan Republican Left (ERC). Meanwhile Catalan opposition leaders have asked Artur Mas to publicly deny allegations reportedly contained in a police report that he holds a secret bank account in Switzerland. The report, which was first run on Saturday by El Mundo, claims that the money in the accounts comes from a threeper cent “fee” Mas and the family of former Catalan premier,

ETA suspect arrested in Liverpool Police on Merseyside have arrested Raul Angel Fuentes Villota, a suspected member of the Basque terrorist group ETA, who had been on the run for 17 years. The Interior Ministry said in a statement that Villota, aged 56 originally from Bilbao, had been living with false documents in the UK and had been "waiting for instructions" from ETA. It said Villota was recruited in 1990 by a part of ETA known as the Matalaz Command and had been arrested in June

1991, along with other members of the group, following a shoot-out. They were accused of attempting to place a bomb on a police officer's car in the province of Vizcaya in the Basque Country. Villota was in custody for four years, and released in June 1995. An arrest warrant was issued by the central criminal court three months later, after he failed to make a scheduled court appearance. Villota was arrested on Friday morning in Liverpool, under a European arrest warrant. A

Raúl Ángel Fuentes Villota

Merseyside Police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police has arrested a 56-year-old Spanish national who was wanted in connection with historic terrorism offences in Spain in 1991. Following a period of imprisonment he has since

failed to adhere to the conditions of his release, and subsequently a European arrest warrant was issued for his arrest and return to prison.” Merseyside Police is liaising with the Spanish Embassy in London in relation to his extradition.

Spain to lose a tenth of population If current demographic trends are maintained, Spain will lose a tenth of its current population in 40 years’ time, the National Statistics Institute (INE) said on Monday. The downward trend is expected to begin this year, and the drop will be the first since at least 1971. The INE said the birth rate will fall progressively until the population stands at 45 million in 2022 from 46 million at present and 41.5 million in 2052. The drop is the result of a reduction in the number of women of child-bearing age and the female birth-

rate crisis in the 1980s and the start of the 1990s, when fewer girls than boys were born. The INE said life expectancy will continue to rise and will reach an average of 86.9 years for men in 2051 and 90.7 years for women. The INE’s census also shows a negative migratory balance in Spain this year, with 376,696 immigrants arriving, compared with 558,175 people moving abroad as a result of the ongoing economic crisis. An estimated 5.2 million residents could leave over the next 10 years with an

expected influx of 3.9 million during the same period, mostly from the European Union, South America and Africa. The only areas expected to experience population growth are Murcia, Andalusia, and the Balearic and Canary Islands along

with the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla. The areas that will see the biggest depletion in their populations are Galicia, Castilla y León, Asturias, the Basque Country, Aragon, Extremadura, Cantabria and la Rioja.

Russian-run prostitution organisation busted Thirty people, most of them russian nationals, were arrested across the country over the weekend on charges that they had sexually exploited some 8,000 women since 2004, forcing them to work in brothels in major cities, the police announced last Saturday. The leader of the alleged ring, igor C., 40, is said to have been responsible for more than 70 per cent of cases involving the sexual exploitation of russian women. Known by his aliases “mark Knopfler,”“The manyfaced one” or just “The man,” igor C. reportedly provided women to brothels in almería, Barcelona, madrid, Granada, Córdoba, Tarragona, Huesca and the Balearic islands, police said. He has also been charged with document forgery and employment crimes.

Historian Paul Preston was interviewed recently by the Spanish daily El Pais about the updating of the Spanish edition of his biography “Juan Carlos: A People’s King”. He said that the book– published 10 years ago – is still fairly fresh, though the speed of current events in Spain had forced him to include the recent deterioration of Juan Carlos' public image since the elephant hunting episode in Botswana at the beginning of the year forced him to make his first public apology. The involvement of his son-in-law in a multimillion-euro corruption case also plays a part in the increasing questioning of the role of the monarchy. Preston admits that he is not a monarchist but feels the “constitutional monarchy has an essential role to play in Spanish democracy”, to neutralise the current political tensions and hatred between the Right and the Left. Preston said he

turned down a chance to interview the king when he was writing the biography in order to preserve his independence as an author. But as he researched the king’s boyhood and youth he realised how many difficulties the king had had to face. “They (Franco and the king’s father) used him as a pawn in a chess game to restore the monarchy. And he had a really hard time of it.” Despite that, or because of it, King Juan Carlos “played a really heroic role during the transition to democracy”. However, he added that from the early 1980s on, the King no longer had those kinds of emergencies – “He is no longer democracy's troubleshooter, but he continues to work hard,

especially as a Spanish ambassador”. Comparing the British and Spanish monarchies, Preston remembered saying in a column he used to write for the conservative Spanish daily Abc that “Juan Carlos's monarchy was like a BMW motorbike while Queen Elizabeth's was like an 18th-century golden carriage”. He said the Spanish monarchy was an example of modernity, austerity and popularity – the exact opposite of what people thought of the British monarchy – “but now, Queen Elizabeth II is more

popular than ever”. He said “the danger for the Spanish monarchy was not so much republican pressure but rather the mistakes made by royal family members”. He wnet on to say that as a hispanophile, he found some regions of Spain more interesting than others, especially Catalonia, “although I am also a fan of Andalusia”. He added that talk about Catalan independence sounded like madness to him. The treatment meted out by Madrid to Catalonia obviously bothered the Catalans a lot but he felt “independence is not the answer".

Residence in exchange for house purchase The Secretary of State for Commerce. Jaime García-Legaz, has announced that the government may introduce a law that would give residence permits to foreigners purchasing a property worth at least €160,000. at a breakfast organised for businessmen, GarcíaLegaz said the move was aimed at the russian and Chinese market. as for the minimum of €160,000, he said it was “a balanced level”which would not“give rise to a massive demand for residence permits”. He said it is also aimed at reducing the number of empty properties in Spain“where purchasing capacity is reduced because of lack of credit”.

As we went to press last night (Tuesday) Sky News was reporting that a truce would be announced and come into effect at 10 pm UK time. Israeli officials had said earlier on Tuesday that plans for a ground operation in Gaza had been put “on hold” to give talks to secure a truce with Hamas militants a chance. Israel had set a Thursday deadline for the Egyptbrokered talks to succeed. Israeli troops have been massed along the border since the conflict began last Wednesday, raising fears of a ground offensive similar to that of 2008-09. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-

moon met Arab League Chief Nabil al-Arabi in Cairo on Tuesday and travelled on to Israel later that day. Egypt has been trying to broker a ceasefire with the help of Qatar and Turkey. The content of the Egyptian ceasefire plan is not known, but both Israel and Hamas have presented conditions. Israel's demands include no hostile fire of any kind from Gaza and international efforts to prevent Hamas

from rearming, while Hamas is demanding an end to the blockade on Gaza and "Israel's assassinations". On Monday, US President Obama spoke to his Egyptian counterpart Mohammed Mursi and Mr Netanyahu, discussing ways to de-escalate the situation, the White House said, announcing that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would go to Israel for crisis talks. Meanwhile, the UN Security Council is

debating a statement calling on both parties to stop attacks and address humanitarian needs in Gaza. Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007, a year after winning a decisive victory in general elections. Israel withdrew from the strip in 2005 but maintains a blockade around it. Israel, as well as the United States and the European Union, regards Hamas as a terrorist organisation.

Six arrests in Berlusconi accountant 'kidnapping' Police have arrested six people accused of kidnapping the accountant of ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi and attempting to extort money. Giuseppe Spinelli and his wife were held hostage for 11 hours at their home last week. Police told a news conference on Monday that the armed intruders had asked for €35 million in exchange for documents they said could help Mr Berlusconi in a legal case. Mr Spinelli was forced to call Mr Berlusconi, who then called his lawyer. The

intruders left after speaking to the lawyer. Police said they had arrested three Italians and three Albanians on suspicion of kidnapping and extortion. Three had forced their way into Mr Spinelli's apartment and the other three were accomplices, they added. The authorities were not informed about the kidnapping until more than 24 hours later, although police did not explain why. The Italian media have said many questions surrounding the episode remained

unanswered. Mr Berlusconi has faced a number of legal cases over the years, mostly involving his business

activities. Last month he was convicted of tax fraud, although his lawyers say he will appeal.

Refugee children 'face winter risks' international charity Save the Children has warned 200,000 Syrian refugee children are at serious risk from freezing temperatures, as winter sets in the middle East. many families have fled across the borders to Turkey, Jordan and lebanon but more than two million are displaced inside Syria, as fighting between government forces and rebels continues. Save the Children said many are living without proper shelter and clothing and may not survive the harsh conditions. The charity is launching an appeal for funds, saying the more vulnerable – the very young, the elderly and the sick – are most at risk if help does not reach them in time. Colombia

Guerrillas declare unilateral truce FaRC rebels have declared a unilateral two-month ceasefire as peace talks started with government negotiators in Havana, Cuba, the venue of the landmark talks, aimed at ending five decades of conflict in which some 600,000 people have died. The negotiations are expected to focus initially on the issue of land reform in Colombia, a major reason for the uprising that brought about the establishment of the FaRC (Revolutionary armed Forces of Colombia) in the early 1960s. Four other points will be discussed: the end of armed conflict; guarantees for the exercise of political opposition and citizen participation; drug trafficking; and the rights of the victims of the conflict. The FaRC, who numbered 16,000 in 2001, are now thought to have some 8,000 fighters. iTaly

The campaign has been introduced to make good a shortfall caused by cuts to the italian culture budget. milan's Duomo is the fourth-largest cathedral in the world and took centuries to build. Construction was started in 1386 and completed by Napoleon, who said he would pay for its facade.

Pakistan blasphemy case dropped A court in Pakistan has dropped a controversial blasphemy case against a 14-year-old Christian girl accused by her neighbour of burning pages from the Koran. Rimsha was arrested following accusations by a Muslim cleric now facing a case for allegedly planting evidence. She was held in a maximum security jail in July but was released on bail – an extremely rare

move in blasphemy cases – following an international outcry over the case. Her family received death threats and went into hiding. There has been no word yet from Rimsha and her family, who remain in hiding, at an undisclosed location. Human rights campaigners have welcomed the decision to drop the case against her, but warn her life could still

be at risk from extremists. Blasphemy is a highly sensitive issue in Pakistan, where 97% of the population are Muslim. Christian campaigners say more than 30 people – suspected of blasphemy – have been killed by mobs or vigilantes over the past 20 years. Critics say the controversial laws are misused all too often – to persecute minorities or settle scores.

British legal system EWS N under scrutiny IN BRIEF

UK

There is some concern in Britain that controversial cleric Abu Qatada has been released on bail, even though he is perceived as a security risk, yet an SAS veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for keeping a pistol as a war trophy. Qatada has been tagged and is being monitored around the clock by the police and the Prime Minister is known to be

frustrated by failed attempts to have him deported. Meanwhile a decorated soldier with 17 years’ service is behind bars. There has been a long military tradition of keeping war trophies and many Second World War pistols are still turning up today, but it is theoretically illegal to have them. The newspapers are not happy. Observers say gun

laws were intended to curb the activities of criminals rather than servicemen who are trusted with weapons to defend their country. Sergeant Danny Nightingale, 37, was given the pistol by an Iraqi soldier he trained. Veterans have called on the Prime Minister to have Sergeant Nightingale released on licence so that his case can be urgently reviewed.

£3 million for vase Bones cat knocked over A man who decided to sell the furniture in his house in the Yorkshire Dales following the death of his wife had a surprise when Tennants the auctioneers called. They found a bottle vase from the Qing dynasty which eventually sold for £3 million at auction. It had been in the house for 45

years, but had not been damaged by cats and dogs running around and children playing football. It had once been knocked over by the family cat but survived intact. It was the only item in the house not to be damaged. The vase was sold to a Chinese telephone bidder based in Hong Kong.

A police investigation is underway after human bones were discovered on a houseboat that was badly damaged by fire on a canal in Oxford on Friday. Police believe the boat could have been set on fire in the early hours, some time before the grim discovery. The severity of the blaze has made the investigation much more difficult and the police are appealing for witnesses.

Alcohol Concern charity attacks low price of drink The UK charity Alcohol Concern says Britain has more young drinkers who drink to get drunk than almost any other country and has called for urgent action on the minimum price of alcohol in an

attempt to combat the problem. The Government is currently considering the best way forward and the charity says that the latest report suggests young people have stated loud

and clear that the way alcohol is priced influences the way they drink. Only Estonia, Malta and the Isle of Man have higher figures for youngsters as young as 13 drinking to get drunk.

They expect a big spend on festive food, up three per cent on last year, and although on-line sales are expected to account for almost 11 per cent of the total, traditional Christmas shopping on the high street will provide the driving force as the stores go for competitive pricing and quality.

November there were two further serious incursions. A large Spanish naval ship conducted a prominent patrol through British Gibraltar Territorial Waters lasting several hours.

The fire was reported just before 10 pm and police evacuated the rest of building while the firemen tried to bring the fire under control. The residents were allowed back at 11 pm.

Once inside they pulled their guns and tied up the three guards before heading for the jewellery department. They also tied up the three real maintenance men they found inside the store. They filled three backpacks with jewellery then took the keys for a car belonging to one of the security guards to make their getaway. One of the guards was able to free himself three hours later and raised the alarm. At press time, the police were still looking for the three men.

The Secretary of State for the Environment, Federico Ramos, on Monday presented the Responsible chiringuitos Awards to Malaga’s chiringuitos, the Nahubeach chiringuito in cadiz, the Andalucian Federation of Beach Entrepreneurs (Faeplaya) and the Federation of chiringuitos, Beaches and Terraces of Andalucia (Fechipla). The awards are part of a government plan to protect the coastline by encouraging sustainable economic actiivies on beaches in the public domain and strengthening the legal framework in the area. Sr Ramos said there were some 3,000 chiringuitos on the country’s beaches which generate more than 40,000 jobs in Andalucia alone.

Memo from

Voice Madrid Muriel Pilkington

Martin Delfín Writes for the English language version of

Hopelessly lost

I

wish I had the vaguest idea about what the Socialists are up to these days but my usually sharp political nose is letting me down badly. Hardly a day goes by without one Socialist spokesperson or another coming out with some confusing message or other. Last week, they couldn’t come to an agreement with the government on putting an end to the avalanche of evictions that has put thousands of people in the street or staying with relatives. After several days of talks, when the government went ahead and passed a law without their endorsement, they screamed that it was not tight enough to stop the banks from squeezing through loopholes. And we know full well that if there’s a loophole the banks will find it.

Hair brained housing idea as if the Partido Popular will occupy that slot for the first time in history – the Partido Popular is not very popular in Catalonia. On the other hand, regional premier Arturo Mas’s use of the independence issue in the election campaign seems to have given a boost to the mad ERCs – the Catalan Revolutionary Left – who have made so many gaffes in recent years that they were almost in danger of extinction. But they got rid of the madman who led them before – Carod Rovira – although the new guy doesn’t seem to be much saner. This means the Socialist Party could end up fourth and the psychological damage will be so great that we just might witness a party committing collective suicide – literally.

O

S T

T

o perhaps it’s the Socialist Party that is hopelessly lost and not me.

Elena Valenciano

O

n Monday, Socialist spokesperson Elena Valenciano told reporters the party was instructing its mayors around the country to close accounts in banks that were going ahead with evictions and move them to banks that were not. She said the mayors would also instruct the local police not to collaborate with evictions – which will get them into a lot of trouble with the Interior Ministry. Of course, there’s a simple explanation for such a radical move – the Catalan regional election on Sunday the 25th.

I

f the party loses big time in that election, the world as the Socialists knew it will fall around their ears. They lost a lot of seats in both the regional elections in Galicia and the Basque Country and we mustn’t forget the thrashing they got a year ago in the general election. So it’s been a pretty bad 12 months for the Socialists all round, although I have to mention here that the Partido Popular didn’t celebrate the first anniversary of its landslide victory on Tuesday.

I

f the latest opinion polls got it right, the 25th will go down as Bloody Sunday in Socialist Party history. Not only are they tipped not to come in second – as usual – after Catalonia’s traditional ruling party, Convergencia y Union (CiU), but it looks

he good news is that Artur Mas will probably end up with the same number of seats that he has now – 62 – so it won’t really have been worth calling an election two years ahead of time. Mas has said repeatedly that he will not go for a referendum on the issue of independence if he doesn’t get an outright majority – 68 seats – but he’s unleashed a spectre that will stalk Catalonia for decades to come. He’s also wasted a lot of money when he can’t even pay the chemists for the medicines they dispense and to rub salt into the wound, the government in Madrid has just started to give him more than €3,000 million to help him start paying his debts.

W

e won’t mention the millions he is alleged to have stashed away in bank accounts in Switzerland and Lichtenstein but when his party lost to a Socialist coalition back in 2003, there were lots of accusations about three per cent commissions on all public works contracts signed with the regional government during the CiU’s years in power. However, the Interior Ministry is carrying out an investigation into the accusations so we’ll wait for its report before screaming “thief”.

B

ut one thing you can bet on – this guy is so bare-faced and shameless that he won’t do the honourable thing and resign – even if his party does badly in Sunday’s election or the investigation turns up millions hidden in unnumbered bank accounts. As the Spanish are wont to say: Bicho malo nunca muere (nasty creepy crawlies never die, or only the good die young).

ur first reaction at El Pais when we heard about the government's latest crazy proposal to hand out residency permits to those who are willing to fork out €160,000 for an apartment was: are these guys insane? They are going to open the floodgates to crooks, criminals and shysters from all corners of the globe who will be allowed to pay a minimum entrance fee to get into Europe. Or is this all part of a ploy to help the EuroVegas project get off the ground? But then again, perhaps, just maybe, the Rajoy administration is once again improvising with desperate misguided ideas to try to resolve the current economic crisis.

he entire proposal announced on Monday by a mid-ranking official, who is virtually an unknown, is laced with hypocrisy. When it was in opposition, the Partido Popular (PP), with Mariano Rajoy at the helm, was the first to attack Prime Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero at the end of 2004 for giving some 350,000 illegal migrants working in this country the opportunity to legalise their residency status.

O

f course there were some requirements: those wanting papers had to secure work contracts and have lived in the country for at least a year prior. Rajoy drummed up outrage among the conservative base across Europe, most notably Nicolas Sarkozy who publicly chastised Zapatero for opening the continent’s doors to illegals without first consulting EU partners.

B

esides revealing more of his twofaced character, Rajoy is also demonstrating that his government is in a desponding delicate balance when it comes to solving the housing problem. The PP has to appease bankers, who have an enormous stock of empty homes – most of them foreclosures – on their hands which they know they won't be able to get rid of any time soon. On the other side of the coin, the PP is under growing pressure to resolve the embarrassing situation of the rash of forced evictions which has captured the attention of the international press and governments around the world.

M

ore than 350,000 people have been kicked out on the streets since 2007, according to organisers of the platform Those

Affected By Mortgages (PAH). Two homeowners who committed suicide within days of each other in different parts of the country just moments before they were to be evicted have also compounded the matter. The government has come up with a feeble decree declaring a two-year moratorium on evictions for those who are considered the “most vulnerable" – people who have children of three years old or younger and the elderly. But judges’ groups, as well as the Socialists, who are now in the opposition, believe this is not enough; the government, they say, has been soft on the banking industry. According to the latest Metroscopio poll taken for El Pais, more than 78 per cent of Spaniards believe that the PP proposal lacks substance.

I

n announcing the government’s residency-for-real estate proposal, the PP said that it was mimicking similar laws that exist in other countries such as Great Britain and the United States. A fact-check shows that at the moment in the United States there has only been a congressional bill introduced last year by US Senators Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) and Mike Lee (R-UT), that would allow foreigners to obtain a residency permit in exchange for purchasing a home worth $500,000 or more. Under the lawmakers’ bipartisan plan, these three-year permits won't be handed out as coveted “green cards,” or work permits, and the buyer has to demonstrate that he or she will live continuously in that property for 180 continuous days per year. And of course they would have to go through a rigorous security background check beforehand.

R

ajoy’s new property scheme comes up short as a housing stimulus programme. Most people who will choose to buy homes will no doubt settle for the sunny southern part of Spain while property slumps will continue in the colder, darker regions of the country. Then, of course, there is a national security issue.

S

pain for years has been a haven for organised crime, terrorists and fugitives escaping justice in their own countries. The real estate-residency scheme would open another back door for them. With this new hairbrained reform, Rajoy once again is showing us he still hasn’t got any real ideas to help this country emerge from the crisis.

WALKER’S WILD SIDE written by Denise Walker The second part of our report on her recent Sri Lanka bird and butterfly conservation tour Our first excursion was to the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary near Ratnapura, an evergreen sub-montane forest. The lush undergrowth revealed a green vine snake, myriads of colourful butterflies and resplendent gaudy birds. Tiny palm squirrels provided constant background chatter and here and there were glimpses of the impressive giant squirrel. The endemic purple-faced leaf-monkeys were also seen in this area. This initial experience was repeated over and over again as we moved from habitat to habitat,

eventually arriving at Kandy. After settling in at a very comfortable hotel, we had time to inspect our leech situation and rinse copious blood stains from our trouser legs. Although harmless, the bites continue bleeding for ages. The group then visited the Temple of the Tooth, one of the best known Buddhist temples – allegedly home to one of Buddha’s teeth – and watched a ceremony with noisy drums beaten by half clad men. Onwards and upwards, leaving the leeches behind, through forested endless hills, rolling tea estates (I

really developed a taste for Ceylon tea) to Corbett’s gap in the Knuckles Range where butterflies with exotic names, such as Red Helen, Tree Nymph and Celon Tiger, could be seen. Wasgamuwa National Park was our next destination and after a long drive, we were treated to views of elephant, water buffalo, spotted deer and a golden jackal. The bird life was prolific and from our open topped jeep, little green bee-eater, Indian roller, Malabar pied hornbill were all added to our checklists. Our final stop was in

Dollar signs flashed before my eyes as I was trundled off to hospital. However, an X-ray, four different sets of colourful pills and a pain relieving gel only cost about £5. Tour over, we waved goodbye to the rest of the group as some of us took an additional cultural tour and were whisked away to the medieval capital, Polonnaruwa whose important monuments, including the old city, the old palace and the monastery complex, are all in one area. The following day, we visited Anuradhapura, an even more ancient capital. Here is the oldest known stupa, considered to hold Lord Buddha’s collarbone and the sacred Bo tree – the oldest documented tree in the world which provided unique photographic opportunities.

The inauguration was honoured with the presence of the Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, numerous councillors and local dignitaries as well as Vicki Rhodes and Lorraine Powell who represented Rotary Club MarbellaGuadalmina. Rotary Club MarbellaGuadalmina raised and donated over €2000 in a very short space of time to assist with the restocking of the fleet of six DYA Ambulances with all their necessary equipment after the dreadful fires that engulfed the local areas in the summer. The Director of DYA, Victor Manuel Mejías, said that : “The organisation is so proud that after 19 years this is the

first ambulance that we have acquired that was not second hand, and that was due to the generosity of Rotary Club MarbellaGuadalmina and the many wonderful volunteers”. The entire cost of the ambulance will be €75,000 so more fund-raising events will be organised in the future. The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, said during the presentation that without the collaboration of DYA “a great many of the events in Marbella could not be held.” Rotary-Club Marbella Guadalmina were very honoured to receive a

beautiful plaque to thank them for their collaboration presented by Ángeles Muñoz – it will definitely take pride of place during their lunch meetings!

She had been hanging around some buildings locally and the security guard had been giving her bread for the last four days. She looked as though she had had puppies but unfortunately they could not be found. Her milk had dried up, so it could have been a while ago. She is a very friendly dog and walks well on the leash. If you would like to come and see Kylie telephone AID on 626 942 427 or visit their website at : www.animals-indistress.eu

Over the past few years I have often mentioned that the more we talk to our pets in training the less they understand. I have also urged owners never to punish or correct a dog unless they are able to give a positive reinforcement of either a kind voice or a treat of some kind, like a liver treat. It is important to try and shorten praise words to one word like "Good" rather than "Now that's a clever boy". A good behaviour "Click and treat". If any dog knows you have a treat he will sit, when he does click and treat. The dog might get up, as he does say "Up" click and treat. If he lays down just as he does say "Down" click and treat. When the dog comes to you, then say

"Come" click and treat. You will be amazed at how quick the dog will understand simple oneword commands that are followed by the click and treat. Remember he only gets the click when he does the required command. Clickers are now all the rage in the USA and the UK.

The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge back to when he was a lonely child at school then revisits his engagement to Belle, who left Scrooge when money replaced her in his heart. The Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge the happy family life of the Cratchits, despite their poverty and the poor health of their son Tiny Tim. The Ghost of Christmas Future shows Scrooge the misery waiting ahead brought by the death of Tiny Tim and a grave that may be his own. Terrified, Scrooge begs that he be released from this torment, so he can change the future and help set things right. Scrooge wakes determined to change his life. Full of jollity as it is now Christmas morning, he stays true to his vow and

The year 2010 marked the 150th anniversary of that great institution, the fish and chip shop. To celebrate the occasion, the results of a survey were published in the Daily Mirror naming five of the top chip shops in UK and abroad. Crispy cod, in Fuengirola was tipped as the best fish and chip shop on the Costa del Sol. The chip shop was established in its present location in year 2000 and the present owner renamed it the Crispy Cod in November 2008. His aim was to become the number one destination on the Costa del Sol for true Fish and Chips. He has so far exceeded all his goals and has regular customers who travel from as far as Granada, Marbella, Estepona and Nerja to sample his fine Fish and Chips. The fish and potatoes are prepared daily on the premises, all the fish being Icelandic line caught. The batter is prepared to his own secret recipe and is

one of the highlights. The Crispy Cod has a complete menu from haddock and plaice to chicken, burgers, sausages and Pukka pies. All the food is prepared in the gleaming open kitchen and you can eat inside or on the weatherproof terrace with attractive views over the beach to the sea. Crispy Cod also have an online menu at www.crispycod.com for you to order your food. You can pre-order via telephone which avoids you having to wait when they are busy or for a takeaway. They have a wellstocked bar with beer and cider in draught. So, if you are a resident or on holiday and are looking for true traditionally prepared Fish and Chips look no further than the Crispy Cod. You will not be disappointed. You will find Crispy Cod on the Paseo Maritimo, Fuengirola and you can ring them on 952 587 351 Advertising feature

Salon Opening on Friday November 30th The Salon Varietes has the first of the two big Christmas Shows. As the great day approaches what better way of getting in the mood than one of Lizz Freeman's splendidly devised Christmas extravaganzas? She was at great pains to point out that this is a show for all the family. Young performers are bringing vitality and 2012 to the programme whilst slightly more mature Salon favourites like Sian Hopkins and Geoffrey Bennetts will add more mature and considered moments. Lizz has even managed to include a Nativity scene and carols will be sung. One hopes the presence of one of the Salon's best known comedy song men, Trevor Cooper, keeps standards high. Definitely not an evening for a quiet doze in the back stalls, you will be expected to join in the fun. Book on 952 47 45 42. The performance will be at 8.00 but on Sunday they start at 7 which gives those living a little away from Fuengirola a chance to have a good night out and not get home too late.

In the lead up to Christmas we are busy organising Staff and Office Parties and of course the usual Birthday, Anniversary, Golf – and well, anything that needs celebrating. With Live Music every night and set menus that won’t break the bank there really is nowhere better than Moochers. Every Thursday from the 22nd November through to Thursday 20th December Ian Jacks is performing live from 8pm till 11pm and then he’s spinning the discs for two hours of the best Disco in town with Ian playing all your favourite 60’s, 70’s and 80’s sounds and with a dance floor so that you can really strut your stuff. Friday nights we have the fabulous Monkey Tennis playing their normal mix of songs from Dylan through to Billy Joel and more, and on Saturday Jeff ‘Guitar’ Johnstone with his set of classic pop and standards.

You’ll be surprised how reasonably priced it is to party at Moochers.

The night is to raise funds for MOVEMBER, a charity which helps those with Prostate and Testicular Cancer. The event is being held at Nelson’s Sports Bar on Sunday 2nd December from 2 pm. Many men have grown 'Mo's' for November and at the event they will be auctioning these men off to

be shaved. They also have a full programme of live entertainment the whole day with great acts. Just a few of the performers are: Rob Stevens, Alexandra Avery, Jason Luis, Adele Lee Peters, Steve Shappelle, Steve Hughes Tony Montanna as Michael Buble, Juliet Williams, Martin Broad, Mario Ross, Jade Williams plus many

others who are giving their time for this charity. Also on the day there will be a 'Mr. & Mrs.' competition, a large charity raffle, an afternoon BBQ with profits to charity and also a FREE evening buffet for everyone attending! The end of the evening is a special performance of the FULL 'Full Monty' by four local personalities.

Telethon postponed In view of the economic crisis that has impacted so heavily on businesses and residents on the Costa del Sol in 2012, and the devastating effect of the worst fire in decades, followed shortly afterwards by flooding that caused major damage and further loss of life, local communities have already been asked to "dig deep" to help the

families affected by these disasters. Talk Radio Europe and CUDECA believe that with so many financial demands on family resources at this time of year, it would be beneficial to postpone the TRE TELETHON. A new date of 8th March 2013 has been agreed. The Chairman of TRE,

MOVIES AN D DV D S TO WATC H O U T F OR

MOVIES TO WATCH OUT FOR

THE IMPOSSIBLE Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona Starring: Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland This epic disaster movie based on a true story follows the plight of a Spanish couple, Henry (McGregor) and Maria (Watts) and their three children as they get caught up in one of the worst natural catastrophes in the history of the world. The family excitedly start their Christmas vacation in Thailand and are relaxing in a tropical paradise. But the idyll is destroyed on the morning of December 26th when the devastating tsunami destroys the area, engulfs

their hotel and them and separates the family. The powerful recreation of the tsunami leaves audiences gasping and the performances of Watts as the battered and vulnerable Maria and McGregor as the man seized by the need to search the shattered landscape in a bid to find his family are powerful and affecting. Young newcomer Tom Holland plays the couple's eldest son Lucas, who before his mother's eyes becomes no longer the

child but her equal. This Spanish written and directed drama – from the team who gave us the spookily brilliant The Orphanage – has had a great reception from the critics, who reckon that this is one of McGregor's best

performances in a long time. Tear jerking, emotionally shattering and frighteningly realistic in its recreation of the disaster, this movie presses all the right buttons.

There could be someone you feel deeply for and yet have not yet formulated a way to let that person know. Perhaps you will have the chance to do something all over again, there are intense urges within that could be pushing you to start anew and forge a fresh path, a new beginning. Trust your instincts right now and then exercise a bit of patience, you are great at sowing seeds but can be impatient if you don’t see immediate results.

This week your courage seems to be really tested to the hilt, it is likely you are going to get another shot at something and you have an opportunity to trust someone. You have reached the precipice and the only way forward is to jump and take a risk into the unknown or go back down the way you came up, covering the same old ground - which is fine of course if you want the achieve the same results. There is so much going on and you would be wise to keep an eye on your finances right now. Mistakes are easy to happen when your eye is not on the ball so double check what you would normally only check once just to be safe. Pay attention to your health and be kind to yourself, I know you like to fight against the flow now and again and ‘just get on with it’ but your body is reacting for a reason. Be gentle on yourself.

October 23rd November 21st

Has something been removed or eliminated from your life, some support structure perhaps that you may not have used, but found comfort in knowing it was there? You could have been heading into dangerous territory and may now have realised that this thing must end so that a new safer journey can commence. Although endings can be painful, you know what you must do, amidst the choppy seas there are safe havens waiting.

SAGITTARIUS You are usually a carefree and easy to read personality, in the main you can be relied upon to spread some positivity and happiness to the rest of us, particularly when the chips are down. There is a lot more going on in your inner world this week than meets the eye. The truth hits you and you find yourself illuminated, enabling you November 22nd - to see things as they really are, everything is crystal clear but when it comes to December 21st communicating this to others, for the moment, it could remain a mystery. You are being pushed beyond your comfort zones to discover that after spending a bit of time feeling like a fish out of water within that strange territory, it suddenly does not seem so strange after all. This is all about discovering parts of yourself that you didn’t know were there, hidden talents December 22nd - start to show themselves, they are emerging from deep within you and crying January 19th out to acknowledge and embrace them.

There is an increase in wealth, the way you feel towards someone and a handful of challenges coming your way. A major breakthrough is about to or has recently taken place. There is a lesson that you are being made to re-learn to do with your love life, you probably already know what that is, so make sure that you remain cool and collected regardless of what may happen. Keeping calm will go a long way in you getting what you want in the end.

You have been known to get yourself in a boat load of trouble and this is usually a result of not taking the time necessary to see someone clearly or to assess a situation realistically enough. You tend to go with the flow and follow your heart, however, this week has you seeing certain people and their motivations more clearly than you would like to. You will be seeing far off in to the distance too and will be able to decipher whatever you need to coming from a mile away.

“How do you say GET in Spanish”

SPANISH By Valerie Mitchell

LESSON

August 23rd September 22nd

Kym’s Kitchen

by Cathy Stronach

Two weeks ago there was some glitch. The title of Poco a poco asked How do you say GET in Spanish? and the article went on to talk about something completely different. To rectify this mix up, we will look at some of the more common uses of GET this week. To get on well with someone is llevarse bien con alguien Me llevo bien con mi suegra - I get on well with my mother-in-law Ella se lleva bien con su hermana - She gets on well with her sister Ellos no se llevan bien - They don't get along well. However, to get on transport is subir Subió al autobús - He got on the bus Subimos al avión - We got on the plane And to get off transport is bajar Bajó del autobús - He got off the bus Bajamos del avión - We got off the plane To get off to a good start is Empezar bien while the opposite is, of course, empezar mal El empezó bien - He got off to a good start. Ella empezó mal - She got off to a bad start And if you are in doubt about what is being said I don't get it - No lo entiendo Do you get the joke? - ¿Entiendes la broma? If you've got to do something use tener que. Tenemos que estudiar mucho - We've got to study a lot. Tienen que comprar una casa - They've got to buy a house. But, Tengo que irme ya - I've get to go now. Hasta la próxima Until next time. Valerie Valerie runs the Centro Idiomas Language School in Coin.

Your teeth can affect your Cell transplant helps paralysed health and hence your dogs to quality of life In this article, as we promised, we are going to give you information about dental disease. Generally we divide dental disease in two groups The first affects teeth and is known as dental caries which we are going to discuss in later articles. The second affects the surrounding tissue of teeth and is also divided into two groups. A. Gingivitis which affects the soft tissue(gum). B. Periodontal disease which affects hard tissue and soft tissue(bone,gum). Teeth are surrounded by gingiva (gum), the periodontal ligaments (fibres), the root cementum and the alveolar bone. The most common type of dental disease is gingivitis that affects gums and appears in all age groups regardless of gender. The cause of gingivitis is quite simply bacteria. Gingivitis can be recognised by redness of the gums, bleeding, swelling, sensitivity and, depending on severity of disease, bad breath. It is good to know that gingivitis can be treated and can also be reversible

Generally gingivitis is caused by bacteria in the mouth and the most common reason that we get it is poor oral hygiene. It can also be caused by using certain medications – such as medication for epilepsy – and certain conditions, such as pregnancy. During pregnancy because of changes in hormone levels in the body ,the gum gets swollen and bleeds but it will return to its normal condition after the birth. Other factors that can contribute to local gum bleeding, regardless of having good oral hygiene, are ill-fitting restorations such as crowns, bridges, fillings, etc which accumulate plaque and cause local bleeding. This can be easily rectified by changing or correcting the restoration. Now that we know what gingivitis is, how it can be recognised and which factors can contribute to it,we can discuss how to go about treating it. As mentioned above, gingivitis is generally caused by bacteria and lack of oral hygeine but is reversible, depending on its severity. As long as the

disease is still in the gum and soft tissue it can be stopped and reversed by optimal oral hygiene – brushing at least twice a day and using a type of interdental instrument such as dental floss, interdental brush or tooth pick. This should be discussed with your dentist or hygienist to see which of these methods suits your teeth and personal situation. An antibacterial mouthwash is also recommended but this is not a substitute for brushing or interdental cleaning. Even if gingivitis is caused by factors other than poor oral hygiene (such as medication or pregnancy) good oral hygiene would help obtain a healthy gum and reduce the risk of permanent damage to the peridontium (bone,gum).

A WORD OF ADVICE Teeth don’t get better by themselves, so seek advice in good time. The recommendation for visiting a dentist depends on which category of patient groups you are in – low risk,medium risk, or high risk. Depending on your situation you need to see a dentist once, twice and sometimes three times a year as well as hygienist visits. Please talk to your dentist if you don’t know which category you are in. In our next article we will discuss the advanced type of gum disease (periodontitis). As usual if you have any questions regarding this article or anything else please write to us info@ladentalclinic.es Samuel Ramsey DDS;MSc(UCL)London Diploma oral periodontics.

Antibiotic resistance 'big threat to health' Resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest threats to modern health, according to England's chief medical officer and the Health Protection Agency (HPA). The warning came amid reports of growing problems with resistant strains of bugs such as E. coli and gonorrhoea. Chief

medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said many antibiotics were being used unnecessarily for mild infections, helping to create resistance, and urged patients to take more care with how they used medicines. To reinforce her message, Dame Sally issued a list of "dos and

don'ts". These include: l Do remember antibiotics should be taken only when prescribed by a health professional. l Do complete the prescribed course even if you feel better, as not taking the full course encourages the emergence of resistance.

l Don't share antibiotics

with anyone else. l Do remember that antibiotics cannot help you recover from infections caused by viruses, such as colds or flu.

The HPA said the last point was one of the common misconceptions among the public.

Scientists at Cambridge University have reversed paralysis in dogs after injecting them with cells grown from the lining of their nose and are cautiously optimistic that the technique could eventually have a role in the treatment of human patients. The pets had all suffered spinal injuries which prevented them from using their back legs. In the study, funded by the Medical Research Council, the dogs had olfactory ensheathing cells from the lining of their nose removed. These were grown and expanded for several weeks in the laboratory. Of 34 pet dogs on the proof of concept trial, 23 had the cells transplanted into the injury site – the rest were injected with a neutral fluid. Many of the dogs that received the transplant showed considerable improvement and were able to walk on a treadmill with the support of a harness. None of the control group regained use of the back legs. Professor Robin Franklin, a regeneration biologist at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Stem Cell

Institute and report coauthor, said: “Our findings are extremely exciting because they show for the first time that transplanting these types of cell into a severely damaged spinal cord can bring about significant improvement. "We're confident that the technique might be able to restore at least a small amount of movement in human patients with spinal cord injuries but that's a long way from saying they might be able to regain all lost function.” Professor Geoffrey Raisman, chair of Neural Regeneration at University College London, who discovered olfactory ensheathing cells in 1985 said: "This is not a cure for spinal cord injury in humans – that could still be a long way off. But this is the most encouraging advance for some years and is a significant step on the road towards it.”

Parfit and Rossi to team up again with Coughlan and Lancaster who left in the ‘80s

Quo O O O O to reform with the original crew for new tour … and it is due to be held in Spring of 2013 It seems that every years for decades Status Quo have been on the road, rockin’ all over the world. In recent years they have been doing their thing twice locally, once on Gibraltar and once in the bullring at Puerto Banus. The fans by now range from those in their 70s to a whole new group of groupies, without the silver hair, in their

teens. It seems that with almost 5 decades of touring Quo can do no wrong. However, these days the cocaine and booze takes a back seat. True, they’re nmot exactly tea-totallers but the days of the “hard stuff” 24/7 have pretty much gone the way of the famous Rossi ponytail. Rick Parfitt is now a grand old 64 with Rossi closely

following at 63-years-old. The band has sold over 120 million albums and, no, that’s not a typing error, plus they’ve had 64 British chart hits and appeared on Top of the Pops 106 times! (Parfitt recently was reported as saying that although they had very little to do with a certain Mr Savile, he always thought there was something “funny” about him!) But the big news, and the

whole point of this article is that the dynamic duo are teaming up with their original bandmates John Coughlan and Alan Lancaster for a tour that’s due to start in the Spring in the UK followed by, well with this lot who knows, but they could well be down here rockin’ all over the Costa once again. See you there!

Her Majesty just loves Ashleigh and Pudsey Presented by actor, comedian and author David Walliams, this year marks the 100th anniversary of The Royal Variety Performance. The Queen wore a bias cut heavily beaded silver mesh lace evening dress embellished with crystal diamante forming a series of parallel lines, designed by Angela Kelly. David Walliams arrived in a jet pack, on a James Bond themed night, before 'flying' across the audience dressed as a star to celebrate the franchise's 50th anniversary This year’s Britain’s Got

Talent winners Ashleigh Butler, 17, and her dog Pudsey performed an acrobatic routine to a medley of Bond themes. It is thought the double act is a particular favourite of Her Majesty. According to wellplaced royal sources, the Queen – who was attending the Royal Variety Performance for the 36th time – was especially keen to learn animal training

tips from the duo. Performing for the fourth year in succession, Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins sang the National Anthem. The evening saw a mixture of the old and the new, with performances by newly back together Girls Aloud and young girl’s favourite boy band One Direction interspersed by slots by veteran performers Jimmy Tarbuck and Sir Bruce Forsyth.

Julian Ward With reference to a letter in edition of 14th November, concerning relative allowances paid to Old Age Pensioners and immigrants in UK. The letter compared apples with oranges and was biased, even, dare I say, racist. My mother, who died two years ago aged 96, lived in the UK. She was British born and bred, and was on basic old age pension. She had no savings or other income. When I had made the various applications of her behalf, she received a reasonable income, more

By email than she could spend on the modest lifestyle which she enjoyed. She was warm, well dressed and well fed and enjoyed her favourite tipple every day. In addition, she did not pay any Council Tax and had subsided travel, no TV licence fees etc. She had no complaints about her level of income from the State. The writer quoted the OAP as £106 p.w., the basic level. They took care not to mention the other non-means tested allowances like Heating Allowance, which are in

Nora Blaimey Reading your Wickham’s World column in this week’s issue of The News (201) I felt I just had to “put pen to paper” and say how much I agreed with the writer. How dare the authorities try and take some truly wonderful books away from us, just because they feel they are not “politically correct”.

addition. My UK pension is around £150 p.w. plus £55 for my wife (dependent relative under pension age) but of course no Heating Allowance. People on benefits in the UK are in general means tested thus poor people, immigrants or otherwise, receive benefits accordingly. Pensioners who have other income and savings, thus may receive less than those who are less well off, some of whom may be immigrants!

Benalmadena Pueblo It strikes me that, these days, people in authority need to get a life and stop telling the rest of us what we can and can’t do and, especially, read. How dare they! I too read all the usual books, including the classics when I was a child. I did not have a privileged upbringing and the escape these books gave me,

just being able to sit in a corner getting away from it all with my book, probably gave me the opportunity to grow up into the successful businesswoman I am today. Thanks you for pointing out this mad idea to us and let’s hope lots of people see fit to write to their MP objecting to it.

e Seven Sisters Apart from the cold, my favourite time of year for looking at the stars is in winter. And one of the most spectacular sights in my opinion is visible right now, The Pleiades cluster.

T

he Pleiades (ply-a-dees) are a very tight group of stars that have been described as the jewel box of the sky, sprinkled with diamonds. If you have a pair of binoculars you will definitely want to go and use them to have a look at the Pleiades after reading this!

T

he Pleiades are possibly the most well known of all the star clusters and are mentioned in almost every culture around the world from Aboriginal Australians, Chinese, Mayan and even native American Indians. They are even mentioned three times in the Bible and in Homer’s Odyssey. Charles Messier who was a French astronomer living in the 18th century drew up an extremely accurate chart listing all ‘fuzzy objects’ in the sky that could be mistaken for comets. He listed the Pleiades as number 45 hence the astronomical designation of M45.

T

o the naked eye most people can make out seven stars forming a very tight knit group of stars in the constellation of Taurus the Bull. To find them, go outside around 9 o’clock and look to the east and you will see the really bright planet Jupiter shining brighter than any thing else in the sky. Now look slightly above Jupiter and you will see the Pleiades.

The cost of dying is about to get a lot more expensive – Or is it?? From 1st September the rate of IVA (vat) charged by Funeral Directors will rise from 8% to 21% so an average funeral cost here in Spain will be in the region of 4840 €. With an Iberian Funeral Plan you fix the cost of the funeral at today’s price and it is fixed forever, irrespective of how much funeral expenses rise in the future. With guaranteed Plan prices starting from just 2995 €. Do you need to look elsewhere for total peace of mind?

T

Just look at the facts: Iberian have the best plans and plan benefits at the best prices Iberian plans are the only genuine interest free plans if you wish to pay by instalments Iberian do not charge you an additional administration fee Iberian do not have any deferred or final settlement payments at the end of the instalment term Iberian Funeral Plans are fully transferrable to the UK Iberian Funeral Plans cover you throughout the EU and can assist worldwide.

T

• • • • • •

With prices starting at just 2995 € and IVA FREE, less does equal more. Therefore it makes so much sense to protect your loved ones by investing in a guaranteed funeral plan from Iberian.

hey are so tightly grouped together that at first they look like a fuzzy smudge in the sky but now that you have found them you will see that they are all individual stars. If you can’t count seven stars then ‘should have gone to Specsavers’ springs to mind! he Pleiades or seven sisters are not just a coincidental alignment of stars but in fact are bound together by their respective gravity attraction, almost like a solar system made of stars rather than planets. They are moving through the universe in unison.

T

he Pleiades are a special group of stars; they are ‘baby stars’ about 360 light years away from Earth. Our Sun is a middle-aged star about six billion years old. In another six billion years it will use up all of its supply of hydrogen. It will expand and swallow up the Earth before collapsing down to a white dwarf. Its light will go out and it will eventually die. But

our star began its life from a gaseous nebular of hydrogen gas that condensed to create a star. After billions of years this gas grew and grew. The pressure and heat inside the core created a thermo-nuclear reaction to take place that converted Hydrogen into Helium that caused the gasses to shine and a star was born.

T

he Pleiades are in the first stages of their birth – they are about 100 million years old. Compare that to our Sun’s six billion years old and you will see that they are nothing more than toddlers. Photographs taken of the Pleiades through the best telescopes even show the remaining gasses from their creation. These gases will undoubtedly go on to create new planets orbiting around these stars and, who knows, create new life.

S

o take your binoculars and have a look at the Pleiades and you will see not seven but hundreds of stars. The Pleiades is rich in a myriad of stars. You may even be able to make out the gas clouds surrounding them and I guarantee you will be impressed with what you can see. Notice too the blue/white colour of the stars indicating that they are very hot and very new.

B

ut while we are talking about the birth and death of stars, look just below the Pleiades at a bright red star called Aldebaran. Aldebaran is 65 light years away from Earth and marks the red eye of Taurus the Bull. It is a very old star and has used up most of its fuel of Hydrogen and begun to swell in size. It is classed as a red giant star and is huge. If Aldebaran was placed where the Sun is then its outer edge would reach out further than the planet Venus and the Earth would be its next meal on the menu.

Robert Kubica reveals he remains unable to drive single-seater racing cars due to the "big limitation" of movement to his injured right arm. The Pole, currently competing in Italy's Rally di Como in a WRC-winning Citroen C4, says he still has the desire to compete in "high-level championships in rally or on a circuit" while he continues his rehabilitation. The former Renault and BMW-Sauber driver was badly injured in a rallying crash in Italy in February 2011.

Hamilton wins in Texas The drivers' championship will be settled next week in Sao Paolo, Brazil, after Red Bull's Vettel was beaten by Lewis Hamilton, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso keeping his title chances alive with a well fought third place "Wicked!" said Hamilton, who pumped his fists, waved to the crowd and danced on the nose of his car after his fourth win of the season. "This is one of the best, if not the best Grand Prix, we've had all year." Vettel started the race in pole position and led for the first 41 laps before Hamilton caught him, getting past Vettel just before they reached the tight corner on turn No. 12 at the Circuit of the Americas. "It was a close fight with Lewis. He had one chance and took it. There wasn't much between us," Vettel said. Vettel, the defending twotime Formula One champion, remains 13 points ahead of Ferrari's Alonso in the drivers' championship, and that means the title will come down to the final race of the season. Hamilton, who won the

last U.S. Grand Prix, was talking all week about how much he loves the United States and how badly he wanted to win in his return. Vettel had been dominant in practice and qualifying on the new $400 million track that none of the teams had driven before this week, but couldn't hold off the former world champion on Sunday.

"I knew that lap was going to be the lap that I was going to try, so I turned the engine up and went for it," Hamilton said. Alonso had to work hard to keep up and keep the chase for the drivers' championship going. Alonso was set to start in eighth. But he got a boost to seventh when his Ferrari team broke the gearbox seal of Alonso's teammate, Felipe Massa, incurring a five-spot grid penalty for Massa that allowed Alonso to move up. "The reason for this was for strategy considerations, with the objective of maximizing Alonso's start potential given that he's still in with a chance to win the drivers' championship," Ferrari said in a statement. "It was a decision agreed by

Jaguar Land Rover: China approves joint venture Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover unit and Chery Automobile Co. will invest 10.9 billion yuan (£1 billion) to build a manufacturing plant in eastern China and create a new brand to cater to the nation's consumers. The 50:50 venture will also set up a research and development centre, with the factory targeted to be completed in 2014, according to a press release by the companies on Sunday. Jaguar Land Rover, which counts China as its fastest-

growing market, joins Volkswagen Group's Audi, Daimler's Mercedes-Benz and BMW in locating production in the world's

biggest vehicle market. The government requires overseas car makers to work with local companies to produce domestically and avoid the nation's 25 percent import duty.

Kubica reveals he 'can't drive single seaters'

"Both parties need each other," Bill Russo, president of Synergistic Ltd., said by phone from Beijing. "JLR needs to be localised because quite frankly their competition is localising. It gives Chery an opportunity to really upgrade its capabilities in a time when it really needs that." Profit at Jaguar Land Rover rose 77 percent in the second quarter to 305 million pounds ($487 million). Surging China sales of Land Rover vehicles led by the Evoque have helped CEO Ralf Speth offset slowing demand in Europe.

both drivers." Alonso used the better position to immediately advance three spots on the first lap. He ran into trouble with a bad pit stop though, when his crew struggled to replace his rear left wheel. "Today it was not possible to keep pace (with the leaders)," Alonso said. "They were too far ahead." Alonso, 31, who won consecutive titles in 2005 and 2006 said "We try to look at Brazil with a possibility to fight for a world championship," Vettel , would be just the third driver to win three consecutive titles, joining Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher.

MIJAS COSTA

Classic Car Club braves the elements The rain might have been lashing down last Saturday morning, with thunder and lightning crashing and flashing through the black clouds, but bad weather did not deter the diehards from SOL Classic Car Club who met just outside Ojen for breakfast. True some members had to leave their open topped cars behind but others in hardier models turned out to support the organisers Ray Holland and Carol Lindores. What was intended as a scenic tour of Ojen village was more of a misty magical mystery tour but by the time the cars had reached the coffee stop just outside Coin there was a rainbow in the sky and a watery sun peeking through the clouds. The second leg of the route, around Cartama and out towards Almogia had better visibility but some challenging obstacles – such

as the “ford” which was actually a flooded road, and some impressive mudslips. Amazingly only one car got lost (naming no names!) and twenty-four members and friends sat down to a wellearned lunch at Las Anforas in Alhaurin el Grande. Definitely a day to remember, for good natured camaraderie rather than beautiful sunny Spanish scenery! SOL Classic Car Club hold a series of very different events, often joining up with other classic clubs. Next month there is a joint meet with the Mercedes Club of Cadiz, as well as various Christmas frolics in La Cala, supporting The Lions, all in addition to the regular monthly run and a special Christmas Dinner club night. More information at: www.solclassiccarclub.net. By Jean Joss

Intrepid members pose at the coffee stop, Venta Platero in Coin, alongside the oldest classic to complete the run - Nick Wadham’s Rover P3 affectionately known as Rosie. Wind, rain and flooded roads did not daunt this veteran!

C.O.G.S. at Torrequebrada Some thirty-three members and guests travelled to Torrequebrada Golf Club to show their appreciation to Society Captain Terry Birtles for the service he had given this year. The course, as always, was in spectacular condition and we all felt it was the best course we have played all year. Our thanks go to Manolo Fernandez of Calanova Golf Club for arranging the event at a very competitive rate. The weather forecast was not good but we played in warm and sunny condititions. Nearest the pin on hole nine was Mark Carr a guest for the day. Longest drive on hole 14 was won by Luke Robinson, over three hundred yards. Well done Luke, you beat some of our really big hitters and not bad as you have only been playing for a year. Team prize went to Dave Williams, Dave Haworth, Andy Macfarlane and Graham Tattersall, with any two from four with 80 points. Best guest score was won by Stephen Anderson with 28 points. The main Competition of the day – in

third place overall with 31 points was Geoff Heading. In second place with 32 points was Dave Williams.

In first place, my playing partner with 34 points and the winner of the Captain’s Day Trophy was Brian Millwood, (pictured above right). From all the members, well done Brian, it has been a long time coming. Your handicap cut at last! In last place with not many points and the winner of the wooden spoon was Phil Beardmore. The par three competition was won by Dave Williams with 11 points. The Terry Birtles nearest the pin Competition, was as follows. Hole 3 Luke Robinson, hole 11 Adam Robinson and hole 13 was a tie between Dave Wrigglesworth and Mark

Carr. The members would like to thank Brian Robinson for donating the many prizes that were presented on the

day. Following the golf we travelled back to Lainey’s Bar for a late brunch, paid for by Terry Birtles. Thanks Terry from all of us and thanks also go to all the staff for cooking the meal and putting up with the unruly mob. Another year nearly over and we play our last outing of the season at La Cala on the thirteenth of December, followed the very next day by our Christmas dinner and dance at Miralmonte Restaurant. Thanks go to The News for printing our monthly article and letting me compile it. It must take some time checking it for any inappropriate words! Nig Bowler. Chairman.

Exhibition Benavista Bowling Club had a stand at this show in an attempt to promote bowling in Spain and at Benavista Green in particular. It was well supported by the members who volunteered to man the stall and help first time bowlers try their hand at the sport on the short mat – kindly supplied by Hughie Holgate along with refreshments for the participants. Over 40 people signed up for the open day on the 18th November. The club were hoping for some new members from this list. The 'Name that Tune' free raffle was won by Tony Farmer.

Wayne’s Poker Tips I play most of my poker on line these days with accounts at most of the big on line casinos, I recently decided to change my banking details with the UK based Sky Poker from my UK account to my Spanish account. This opened a can of worms as regards the legality of ex-pats who hold Spanish residency playing on some sites. Spaniards and Spanish residents can only play on sites that are licensed by the Spanish government. The thing that did stun me was that these players can only play against

Spanish-based players. The sites that are licensed in Spain are 888, PokerStars, Bwin, Ladbrokes and Sporting Bet – these are the big names but there are a few smaller sites about which I know nothing and are most likely franchises of the above sites any way. So to play online poker in Spain if you are a resident you must download the .es versions of the software for the licensed sites, I am now using 888.es and can report the standard of play is very good with just enough bad players to make it profitable. I would recommend any

player in Spain to use the licensed sites for two reasons – the first being it is legal and above board and secondly if you are not legal and have a big win these online casinos will always be looking for an angle not to give you your money. If you are a Holdem player have you ever tried Omaha? If not I would recommend you give it a try. It’s a great game to improve your Holdem when to fold skills. The reasons for this is that you have 4 hole cards instead of 2 and must use 2

Britain's Bradley Smith said riding a MotoGP bike for the first time during testing in Valencia was "better than I had ever dreamed of". Smith will partner fellow Briton Cal Crutchlow at Tech 3 Yamaha next season, which will be his first in MotoGP. Wet weather forced Smith to sit out the first day of testing on Tuesday. But after completing 16 laps on Wednesday, he said: "I'm still buzzing. What a feeling to ride such an unbelievable motorcycle." (Pic: Smith leads Crutchlow)

Luke Donald moved up to world number two in the world rankings and overtook Tiger Woods by claiming victory in the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Japan. Donald followed up opening rounds of 65, 64 and 71 with a final round of 68 for the win. Donald had led by four shots going into the final round and ended up with a five stroke cushion over nearest rival Hideki Matsuyama. It is the 34-year-old's first tournament win since defending the PGA Championship at

Wentworth in May. Donald's latest success rarely appeared in doubt after he birdied the fourth and eighth, while getting an eagle at the seventh. He did bogey holes nine and 10 before seven pars and a birdie on the long 18th assured him of victory.

Malaga travelled to Pamplona in the hope of a win after two successive home defeats. But as early as the 2nd minute Malaga were in trouble, Solo fired home only to be wrongly judged to be offside, (a let off for Malaga). Malaga came into the game and on 10 minutes had the ball in the opposition’s net with Joaquin firing home a pass from Eliseu but this was rightly adjudged to be offside. Willy Caballero saved well on 12 minutes as Malaga looked to have control of the game, a half chance coming Isco’s way in the 26th minute. Osasuna though were always dangerous and again Caballero had to save this time from a header.

Willy Caballero stood firm to make two late saves

Joaquin, probably Malaga's best player in the game tested Fernandez on 30 minutes but in the second half there was more from Osasuna as they looked for a winner. Caballero made a super save on 49 minutes from the head of Solo, and the same player had a chance 13 minutes later but failed to get on the end of a good move. With seven minutes to go Osasuna should have won it, Cejudo was played through to one on one with

Caballero, who again saved brilliantly. Another save in injury time guaranteed a point for Malaga to break their losing run, but only 2 points from the last 4 games. The next two games Zenit St Petersberg in the Champions’ League tonight (Wednesday) kicking off at 6pm and a mouth-watering game at home to Valencia on Saturday evening. Report by Scott Forbes
