Costa Concordia finally set upright

Engineers have succeeded in raising the cruise ship Costa Concordia from the rocks, 20 months after it ran aground off the island of Giglio. They said that the unprecedented salvage effort had "reached degree zero [vertical], which was our target". In the operation, that took all of Monday and most of the night, they used cables and metal boxes filled with water to roll the ship onto a platform. The Costa Concordia capsized in January 2012, killing 32 people.

The bodies of two of the victims of the disaster

have never been found, and there are hopes that they may be located inside the ship.

The ship was declared completely upright shortly after 04:00 local time on Tuesday.

Franco Gabrielli, the head of Italy's Civil Protection Authority, said the vessel was now sitting on a platform built on the sea bed. "A perfect operation, I must say,"

ANTHONYS DIAMONDS ship – twice as heavy as the Titanic – was raised from the rocks on which it had been lying and rolled up onto her keel. More than 50 enormous chains and winches were used to break the ship away from the reef in a process known as parbuckling.

During the marathon operation, the ship could be seen gradually emerging from the water. The engineers had originally planned to complete the operation by Monday evening, but it had to be delayed by three hours because of a storm. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

When I was delivering the papers last week I met some people who asked me how long my round took. Well, on that particular week it was seventeen-anda-half hours. They looked at me as if I was absolutely bonkers, with a little bit of disbelief thrown in but, depending on how long I spend chatting as I go round – and let’s face it, if you didn’t you’d have to be bonkers to do it – the round can take anything from sixteen hours upwards. Now, some would agree that I am a bit off the wall and possibly even totally bonkers as they said but, once a week, I get out of the office and I meet our readers. It’s great and although utterly exhausting by the end of the day, I know exactly where our papers are going, which places need more or less and can instantly adjust it so that all our papers are in the right places. I find out what people do and don’t like about the paper and living in or visiting Spain, and all manner about themselves, their friends, their families, where they’ve been and

Would any of the others give them directions? Not likely!

The procedure was carried out very slowly to prevent further damage to the hull, which spent months partially submerged in 15m of water and fully exposed to the elements.

Officials now plan to make a full inspection of the vessel and begin to prepare the next stage – to repair and refloat it and eventually tow it away to be destroyed. It is the first time engineers have tried to lift such a huge ship – over 951 feet long. Giglio mayor Sergio Ortelli earlier said the Costa Concordia's removal would bring an end to "a

The salvage project has so far cost more than €600 million and is expected to cost much more before the operation is complete. Five people have been convicted of manslaughter over the disaster. The captain, Francesco Schettino, is currently on trial accused of manslaughter and abandoning ship.

Meanwhile, without referring specifically to Catalonia, a European Commission spokesman also reiterated that if a territory of a member state of the EU declares its independence, it becomes a “third country” according to EU treaties.

“The party that separates is not a member of the European Union,” Almunia told a seminar on Europe held in Barcelona.

He urged Catalan regional premier Artur Mas and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to sit down “face to face and with cool heads” and work out a solution to Catalonia’s insistence on holding a vote to decide the region’s future within Spain. Mas said on Sunday that he

Parliament vacated Bid for 2024 Games ruled out for Madrid after roof leak Parliament got off to a damp start last week when MPs were forced to vacate the chamber because of a leaking roof.

During a thunderstorm over the capital, water began to pour in through the roof over the parliamentary chamber just as politicians were taking their seats for the first time after the summer break.

Work to overhaul the building began during the summer at an estimated cost of €4.4 million and repairs to the roof are still ongoing. Rain collected in tarpaulins covering sections of the chamber and when the weight became too much it gushed on to the heads of those below. Speaker Jesus Maria Posada Moreno was forced to order everyone to leave and delayed the session by two hours. He warned that the electrical system might be affected and there could be "a risk of electrocution until the problem was solved". Thousands of Spaniards joked on social networks that it "was a sign from the heavens". The incident brought to light the fact that the five bullet holes in the roof of Parliament – put there by

Guardia Civil officers during the February 1981 coup attempt – have been covered over. They were supposed to be left there for eternity – a reminder of how a fragile democracy once came under threat and left an entire country on edge. But now they are gone, MPs want to know who ordered them to be sealed up.

Parliamentary sources believe that the main culprit could have been a lack of supervision when workers began reforming the interior of the Parliament building earlier this year, despite standing orders for workers carrying out refurbishment inside the building not to touch the bullet holes. "We are going to investigate what happened," said Posada. "If anyone wants those holes to be there forever, it is me." Posada was the

civil governor in Huelva at the time of the coup attempt when Guardia Civil Colonel Antonio Tejero and a group of officers barged into Parliament and began shooting their weapons in the air. After a tense night, they surrendered the following morning.

After three consecutive failed bids to host the Olympic Games, Madrid Mayor Ana Botella told a press conference last Thursday that she had informed King Juan Carlos and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy that the city should not seek to host the 2024 Games.

At her first press conference following Madrid’s defeat to Tokyo in Buenos Aires the previous Saturday, Botella said the 2020 bid had been a good try: “We had a great dream, not a random dream but one that was based on reason. We shouldn’t feel guilty about it. There seemed to be serious options that the

Skeleton identified

On July 2nd this year, people on board a yacht called Yaiza discovered a skeleton, still in a neoprene suit, complete with diving mask and fins, floating in the sea some 40 miles of the coast of Calpe in Alicante province. The body was carrying a backpack containing a mobile phone, €540 in cash, and a passport in the name of Abdelaziz Elfayafi, born on January 8th, 1989 in Imzouren, a Moroccan city in the Rif region. But the

body was so decomposed that it was impossible to know whether the diver was the owner of the passport or not. Two months of police work and a DNA test have solved the mystery. The Guardia Civil confirmed that it was in fact Abdelaziz. The reason for his death is not clear. At first the Guardia Civil thought he might have been an immigrant trying to reach Spanish shores by sea, but now they believe it was from natural causes.

goal would finally be reached.” Then she added: “Perhaps in the last weeks we took our excitement a little too far. Politicians did it, the media did it, the athletes did it but I don’t think it’s something we should feel too mortified about.” The mayor admitted she had no clue as to the reasons for Madrid’s shock elimination in the first round of voting. She said she had “the impression that in just a few hours too many analyses, theories and retrospective opinions began circulating” adding that “some people even attempted to raise ghosts of our past history associated with national

disasters and failures. They probably did that because it’s the easiest thing to do, even if the comparison barely holds together for an instant.”

She ended the press conference on a more positive note: “What happened deserves some reflection, but not dejection. A country that punishes those who try is a country without any initiative.”

"Humiliating" hazing rituals under fire Making freshmen drink abusively without their consent is the example of student initiation rites most often mentioned by directors of college residences and university administrators.

Others include using the freshman's cupped hands, or mouth, as an ashtray; being made to swallow coins, earth, birdseed or dog food; removing clothes, followed by depilation; and cold showers amid wet-towel slaps and jeers. But this year 125 student residences – out of the 160 in the country – have joined in saying this has gone too far, promising to fight the practice on and off their premises. For the last year the residences have been preparing a text, promoted mainly from Madrid, and now being released as the academic year begins, in an attempt to put an end to the "pact of silence" among students about a practice "that often involves unjustifiable situations of mistreatment, harassment and humiliation". It has already been signed by some university

administrations, with more expected to sign.

For some years now, many campuses have expressly prohibited these practices. Some residences even make students sign a document promising not to take part in hazing when they enrol. But residences and university administrations admit these actions exceed their scope of control, and have asked parents and other institutions to cooperate. The anti-hazing association No mas novatadas (No more hazings) was formed two years ago. Its president, Loreto González, notes that the association has already contacted some politicians, and wants a meeting with the Education Ministry and political parties to prepare a specific law against hazing.

"In France, hazing is expressly included in the Penal Code," she said . "Do we have to wait until something really serious happens here?"

Time runs out for lottery winner Someone is walking around La Coruña, totally unaware that he or she has won €4.7 million in the Primitiva lottery. According to the Galician newspaper La Voz, the ticket was bought nearly three months ago in a Carrefour shopping centre, but ended up on the counter of a different lottery shop. Rather than try to claim it, lottery ticket seller Manuel Reija González

reported it to the lottery administrators. He told TVE1 on Tuesday that he decided to run the ticket through his machine and was amazed to find that it had won €4.7 million.

A nationwide hunt is underway on TV, radio and in the newspapers to find the lucky winner. If he or she doesn't turn up before the end of this week, the prize will go to Reija González. Selling

tickets runs in his family, Reija González's brother works for the lottery, as did his father and grandfather. The mayor of La Coruña, Carlos Negreira, said on Monday: "For the first time we're looking for a millionaire, not because we want money from them, but because we want to give it to them." Some important details have been kept back, to

make sure the right person claims their winnings, including the exact time the ticket was bought. According to the law, "the prize can only be paid out if sufficient information is provided that proves without doubt that the claimant is the rightful" winner. One man has already tried to claim the prize, but has been rejected.

Cannabis store blast injures four An explosion last Thursday in the Madrid district of Carabanchel was caused by an accumulation of gas used in the extraction of cannabis oil and resin in a cannabis paraphernalia store in the basement of an apartment block, seriously injuring four young men. The explosion occurred while the men were harvesting dried marijuana plants for

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – its principal psychoactive component – a process that requires the use of highly inflammable Blau gas, which is sold in pressurized canisters.

Investigators said there were indications that during the extraction process, which should be carried out in a ventilated space, a naked flame was lit causing the gases to ignite. They said that the basement measured just

45 square metres and was poorly ventilated.

However, the exact source of the heat that triggered the explosion is still unknown. Six people in the ground floor apartment when the explosion occurred were unharmed. According to an eye witness, three of the men in the basement ran from the store in flames. The fourth was rescued from the interior of the building. A young

girl who was outside the store was treated at the scene for light cuts to her arms caused by the glass from the store window, while a police officer who assisted the injured men was treated for smoke inhalation. After inspecting the building the fire services chose not to evacuate residents as no structural damage resulted from the blast.

Socialists refuse to back Transparency Law

Parliament has approved one of the government's star pieces of legislation – the Transparency Law – without the support of the main opposition group, the Socialist Party (PSOE), which withheld its votes mostly because of the Bárcenas corruption scandal, which involves an alleged Partido Popular slush fund that was run by the party's disgraced former treasurer, Luis Bárcenas. The legislation, which is aimed at shining more light on to the notoriously opaque workings of all levels of government, was supported by the PP, the Catalan nationalist bloc CiU, the Basque nationalists PNV and the Canaries Coalition (CC). The main sponsor of the legislation, deputy Prime minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, said she "would not rest" until more parties signed up to the law.

Government wants new forum re Gibraltar

To defuse the diplomatic row that flared up last month over Gibraltar, Foreign minister José manuel García-margallo has written to his British counterpart, William Hague, proposing a new framework for discussing issues concerning the territory. The government rejects the tripartite forum set up under Socialist Prime minister José Luis rodríguez Zapatero, which gave equal status to Gibraltar, Spain and the UK. García-margallo said he had proposed to Hague a "method of working" that would set an "agenda and the composition of ad-hoc groups to resolve conflict". Hague proposed something along those lines in april of last year, with all the relevant authorities concerned to be involved in resolving issues such as fishing rights and environmental protection measures.

World News Islamist leader gets death penalty

Bangladesh's top court has rejected the appeal of an Islamist leader against his war crimes conviction, increasing his life sentence to the death penalty.

In February Abdul Kader Mullah, of the Jamaat-eIslami party, was convicted by a special tribunal of crimes during the 1971 war of independence with Pakistan.

The life sentence imposed at the time unleashed a wave of unrest on the streets pitting supporters of Jamaat, who accuse the government of pursuing a

political vendetta, against pro-government groups, who said the sentence was too lenient. Thousands staged vigils in Dhaka demanding the death penalty for Abdul Kader Mullah, who had been convicted of charges which included overseeing massacres during the bloody struggle for independence. The massacres earned him the nickname of

Call to end child marriage

Yemen's human rights minister Hooria Mashhour has asked parliament to pass a law setting a minimum age for marriage. Her request comes amid an international outcry over reports that an eight-yearold girl died of internal bleeding on the night she wed a 40-year-old man.

Poor families marrying underage girls off for money is common in Yemen, but pressure to ban the practice has intensified after a Yemeni human rights campaigner

said the girl, identified only as Rawan, died last week after being married to a man five times her age in Meedi, a town in the north west of the country. The campaigner told reporters she was taken to a clinic but the medics couldn't save her, adding that no action had been taken against the man. A security official denied the incident had taken place, but two Meedi residents told reporters that it had and tribal chiefs had tried to prevent it being reported.

"koshai" or butcher of Mirpur, and made him one of the more feared Jamaat leaders. More than 100 people have been killed since January in the violent protests.

The special court was set up in 2010 by the current Bangladeshi government to deal with those accused of collaborating with Pakistani forces who attempted to stop East

Pakistan (as Bangladesh was then) from becoming an independent country. But human rights groups have said the tribunal falls short of international standards. Figures from the Bangladesh government estimate more than three million people were killed during the independence war. Other researchers put the figure at between 300,000 and 500,000.

Danone 'shocked' by China bribery claims Dumex, a baby food brand owned by France's Danone said it is investigating claims the company gave "sponsorship fees" or payments of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,632) to hospital staff to use its baby formula products, according to China Central Television. The report, which cited an unidentified former sales manager, comes amid an anti-corruption drive by Beijing. Dumex said it was "extremely shocked" by the allegations. "Dumex Baby Food Co strictly adheres to Chinese laws and regulations," a company spokeswoman said. The

latest allegations come amid a government-led crackdown on corruption in its £220 billion healthcare market. Some inquiries have targeted foreign firms, including British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, which is being investigated for allegedly using inducements to promote the sale of its medicines. China is an important market for companies such as Danone, which is the country's third-largest baby formula provider. Danone's baby nutrition unit also makes more than 20% of its overall sales from China.

the country's last functioning nuclear reactor has been shut down, with no timetable for a restart. Reactor 4 at ohi in western Japan stopped generating electricity in the early hours of Monday. Analysts have said Japan will be without nuclear power until December at the earliest, the longest shut-down since the 1960s. the Japanese public turned against nuclear power after the meltdowns at the Fukushima plant in 2011. Before the accident, which was caused by a massive earthquake and tsunami, nuclear plants supplied about 30% of Japan's power. But since then the plants have been closed, either for scheduled maintenance or because of safety fears, and have not been restarted. So far, power companies have applied to restart about a dozen of Japan's 50 reactors. EtHIoPIA

Child mortality rate more than halves

New UN statistics show that Ethiopia has more than halved its mortality rates for children under the age of five years during the last two decades. the government attributed the improved figures to its growing economy. Despite the reduction, the UN Children's Fund said Ethiopia needed to do much more to improve health facilities for pregnant women. Ethiopia is one of Africa's poorest states, although it has experienced rapid economic growth in recent years and is one of the continent's leading coffee producers. the country was once a byword for malnutrition in Africa, but the latest Unicef figures show it is one of the few African countries on the path to realising the millennium development goal of reducing child mortality rates.

Passengers ignore unlucky omens

Superstitious travellers might think boarding flight 666 to HEL(sinki) on Friday the 13th might be tempting fate. But Finnair passengers on AY666 to Helsinki apparently were not too bothered. Last Friday's flight was almost full. "It has been quite a joke among the pilots," said Juha-Pekka Keidasto, who will flew the Airbus A320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki. "I'm not a superstitious man. It's only a coincidence for me." Friday the 13th is considered bad luck in many countries and the number 666 also has strong negative biblical associations. Some airlines take such fears seriously and do not have a row 13 on board. However, the negative connotations are a relatively new phenomenon for northern Europeans, and Finnair and other regional carriers such as Norwegian and Estonian Air keep row 13.

France, US and UK want 'strong' UN resolution

A gunman who died after killing 12 people at a naval installation in Washington France, Britain and the US are to seek a "strong" UN resolution with "serious consequences" if DC has been identified as a former Navy serviceman. Aaron Alexis, 34, of Fort Worth, Texas, died in a gun battle with police during the rampage at Washington Navy Yard. Eight others were injured in the attack, which began at around 8:20 local time on Monday.

No motive is known for the attack, whose dozen victims ranged in age from 46 to 73, said the authorities. Police initially responded to reports of two other armed suspects, but after exhaustive searches Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said on Monday night they were all but certain that Alexis was the only gunman.

Witnesses said the suspect sprayed bullets in a hallway and fired from a balcony down on to workers in an atrium at the heavily secured

installation in the US capital. He was reportedly armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a handgun that he took from a police officer at the scene.

But Russia has warned that threatening Syria may "wreck" the peace talks. Under a deal brokered by Russia and the US, Syria has agreed to disclose its full chemical arms arsenal within a week and eliminate it by mid-2014.

Chief Lanier told reporters that if he had not been shot down "there is no question he would have kept shooting". Valerie Parlave of the FBI said that the suspect, who was employed by a subcontractor that was working on a US Navy intranet network, had a valid pass to enter Washington Navy Yard. Alexis was formerly a petty officer 3rd class who served full-time in the naval reserve from 200711. It was not immediately clear why he left the military, but unnamed

World's oldest man dies The world's oldest man, a one-time sugarcane worker born in Spain, has died in New York state, aged 112.

A video released by the North African arm of alQaeda shows seven Western hostages are still alive. Mauritanian news agency ANI, which received the footage, says it shows four Frenchmen – Daniel Larribe, Pierre Legrand, Thierry Dol and Marc Feret – kidnapped from a uranium compound in Niger three years ago.

Dutch hostage Sjaak Rijke, Swedish hostage Johan Gustafsson, and South African hostage Stephen Malcolm were kidnapped nearly two years ago from a hostel in Timbuktu in an attack that left a German man dead. All the captives

seemed in good health, ANI said. The French foreign ministry said it believed the video was credible.

The video was apparently sent to ANI by the al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). It was not clear when the video was made, but ANI said the messages recorded by the French hostages were made in June.

This is the first video said to show the men since France sent troops to Mali in January, after alQaeda-linked militants threatened to overrun the capital Bamako.

reports, Alexis was a Buddhist convert who had had two previous gunrelated brushes with the law.

The MJ Colucci & Son Funeral Chapels said on its website that Salustiano "Shorty" Sanchez, recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest man, died on Friday at a nursing home in Grand Island, New York. Guinness said in June that Sanchez, who also had been a construction worker, was the oldest man following the death of 116-year-old Jiroemon Kimura of Japan. Sanchez told Guinness his longevity was due to eating one banana per day and taking Anacin daily. He said living so long was

not a special accomplishment. With his death, the world's oldest man is Arturo Licata of Italy at 111. The oldest woman is Misao Okawa of Japan at 115, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which tracks people 110 and older and validates ages for Guinness. The greatest authenticated age for any human is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France.

UN investigators have said they are probing 14 alleged chemical attacks in Syria since September 2011. The US had threatened military action against the Syrian government over a chemical attack in Damascus on August 21st which is reported to have killed hundreds of people. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied allegations his government was behind the attack, accusing the rebels of carrying it out.

UN weapons inspectors who visited the scene of the attack released their findings on Monday, but their remit does not involve assigning blame. The report confirmed chemical weapons had been used "between the parties in the Syrian Arab

SALINA’S

Republic". It went on:

"The environmental, chemical and medical samples we have collected provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were used in the Ghouta area of Damascus. Meanwhile, Paulo Pinheiro, the chairman of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria, said it had been investigating 14 alleged chemical attacks since it began monitoring Syrian human rights abuses in September 2011. Mr Pinheiro said investigators had not so far been able to assign blame and believed both President Assad's government and the rebels were responsible for war crimes, but that the regime alone had perpetrated crimes against humanity. He said war crimes, including mass executions, rape and torture, were continuing.

CPS and DWP turn up the heat at home and abroad The British Crown Prosecution Service announced this week heavier sentences for convicted fraudsters, indicating that the sentence should fit the crime, with sentences of up to 10 years being handed down. The UK Department of Work and Pensions has also announced a new campaign. Their campaign, starting this autumn, will remind claimants to report any changes to their circumstances at the time that they happen and not wait until DWP investigate. Examples of changes in circumstances include: moving or buying property abroad, moving in with a partner or starting work.

While benefit fraud continues to be a very serious matter, costing tax payers everywhere countless millions every year, here are some of the more amusing excuses and explanations offered by suspected British fraudsters when questioned: •A claimant in West Lothian, who tried to explain her reasons for

When it was pointed out that they had three children together in a 5year period, she said: "We're all entitled to a one night stand aren't we?” She was again reminded that there were three children.

The excuse? “My brother has children born on the same dates with the same names.” •Another said, "I didn't tell you about my private pension because it’s private.” •A North East DLA claimant asked why she claimed she was incapable of cleaning her own house when she was working as a full-time bus cleaner explained, "By the time I come in from work, I’m that knackered." •And finally: "It's Christmas so I should be able to keep the extra money.”

Paedophile jailed 35-year-old Robert Hunter from Middlesborough has been jailed for twelve years by Teeside Crown Court after being found guilty of using the internet to lure young girls.

He had been arrested in December 2012 and around 800 pornographic videos were found on his computer. Even after his arrest the paedophile continued using social media sites to target the girls, some aged as young

as nine, from all over the world including Europe, Asia, Canada and America. It has been reported that he sometimes used the name of Justin Bieber to convince girls to commit lewd acts for him on a webcam. However, he had managed to disguise his age and identity by convincing the girls that his own webcam wasn’t working and blackmailed some of them into continuing to do what he asked by saying that he

Defending Hunter, Tamara Pawson said he was remorseful for his actions and the distress he had caused. Hunter pleaded guilty to 30 offences, which included 15 charges of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and 14 of making indecent photos of children.

Sergeant Paul Higgins, from Cleveland Police, said: "Robert Hunter was a calculating and malicious predator who set out to coerce and bully young girls into exposing themselves over the Internet.

The three other climbers were rescued after spending the night on the mountain and Mr Buckley’s body was recovered on Sunday afternoon.

The Director General of Spain's National Police, Ignacio Cosidó, was in La Linea on Monday for the swearing in of its new police commissioner, Adolfo Castaño. In a statement, he reflected on the border situation. He said Spain would “boost the investigation of economic crime and money laundering related to Gibraltar,” and also sent a message of support to his officers who, he said, were simply obeying orders: “We will not tolerate any aggression, threats and any action to discredit police officers who are carrying out their duties in an exemplary manner.” Sr Cosidó's visit coincided with queues of over two hours to enter Gibraltar in the morning which by evening had been reversed, and vehicles were waiting three hours. There were also significant delays for pedestrians.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, Spain's Agriculture Minister, Miguel Arias Cañete, said his government was ready to file a legal case against Britain if the EU did not press ahead with infringement proceedings against Gibraltar over the artificial reef.

He said the case would focus on three alleged violations of environmental law, including the dropping of

Judge names ex-premiers in the ERE fraud case Judge Mercedes Alaya took the first steps last week to indict two former Junta de Andalucia premiers, Jose Antonio Griñan and Manuel Chaves, in connection with the so-called ERE case, in which alleged fraud was committed in the allocation of public funds destined for labour-adjustment plans (known as EREs).

She also moved to formally target former Andalusian government commissioners Carmen Martínez Aguayo, Francisco Vallejo, José Antonio Viera, Manuel Recio and Antonio Ávila. Griñán stepped down as premier earlier this month to avoid what he described as the further “erosion” of the ruling Socialist Party in Andalusia, claiming he was never informed of possible wrongdoing in the ERE fund, which was used to help companies cover the severance payments of workers they laid off over the course of a decade.

A number of people who received payments from the fund were not entitled to any of the money handed out. Griñán had stepped in as premier after Chaves left to join the government of Socialist Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. In a ruling, Judge Alaya said there are “precise elements” that point to “subsidies being granted outside of legally established procedures”. She said her investigation had reached a point that raised the issue of the immunity afforded the politicians identified in the case, in connection “with the facts being investigated”. Making it clear that her

arguments did not constitute a formal indictment, Alaya called on those she named to appear before her for questioning, “in order to allow them to defend themselves”. The judge also said her decision was open to appeal.

The judicial sources said the anti-corruption prosecutor has decided to question the writ because the arguments it uses are not well founded and could leave those affected defenceless. The anti-corruption prosecutor’s office also said Judge Ayala needed to explain her motives for issuing the writ and detail the offenses that she believes might have been committed.

Judge Ayala’s investigation estimates the extent of the alleged fraud committed over the

a council spokesman said the new location was more convenient both for locals and tourists. He said the old station would make way for a park with trees to provide ample shade and a sculpture and murals to please the eye. He did not say when he expected the new station to be completed.

Covered sports facilities criticised

The spokeswoman for the United left party, Begoña romero, has asked mayor Pedro Fernández montes, to annul two motions approved in last month's plenary council meeting relating to padel rinks and tennis courts. She said the estimated cost of €298,733 of building the covered rinks and courts was a waste of money. She said spending so much money on covering sports areas in a town like Torremolinos, where it does not rain 80 per cent of the year, was not only a waste of money but also an insult to the thousands of families in the town who could not make it to the end of the month.

've been saying for years that Spain should let Catalonia go. Former Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero opened the Pandora's box of Catalan independence when he rashly promised during the campaign for the March 2004 election that the Catalans could draw up a reformed version of their Autonomous Statute and he would give it his backing if elected. He was elected, and the Catalans lost no time in slapping a text on his desk that was independence in everything but name. Zapatero did one of his famous U-turns and toned the whole thing down, but the damage was done.

T

he so-called "independentista" movement was unleashed and has been mercilessly working the media at every opportunity ever since. Their tactics include burning the Spanish flag and portraits of the Royal Family, and whistling and booing at the latter whenever Barcelona reaches the final of the King's Cup. If you don't like the King you shouldn't compete for his Cup.

B

ut worse was to come after the current Catalan premier, Artur Mas, won the last but one regional election without a majority. His party, CiU, which used to be a relatively moderate nationalist party, won 62 seats, five short of a majority, but he could rely on smaller nationalist parties for support in the Catalan Parliament. However, piqued when Mariano Rajoy refused to let him take over taxation in the region, he called a snap election for November 2012 – and lost 12 seats!

U

nfortunately, the ultra-left wing Republican party called ERC won 21, up from 10 the previous year. So he formed an unholy alliance with the ERC, and Catalonia has never been out of the headlines since.

ow I envy people who don't have enough Spanish to watch television or read the papers here, who can believe that Barcelona is just the most fascinating city in Spain – or so they say.

Secession, the euro and Miss World Writes for the English language version of

headlines in most of the major dailies and TV news broadcasts. For most of us, that date is inextricably associated with the downing of the World Trade Centre's Twin Towers in New York and the attack on the Pentagon. But for Catalans, it commemorates the final fall of Barcelona in 1714 following a siege by Castilian and French forces that had lasted over a year.

A

nd there's no denying the Catalans may have good reasons for wanting to secede from Spain. Within two years of the city's surrender, the victorious Spanish king, Philip V, punished the territories of Aragon by issuing the Nueva Planta decrees. Catalonia had joined Aragon in the 12th century but had always maintained its own parliament. Philip V abolished Barcelona's Cortes and imposed Castilian law on all parts of Aragon's crown, including the Catalans. That quashing of autonomous Catalan institutions that had existed for many centuries has provided much fuel for the fire of Catalan nationalism over the next 300 years.

T

he current independence fever is fuelled by what happened after the Civil War. Franco, who never forgave the Catalans their resistance during the Civil War, ordered the abolition of the autonomous institutions granted during the Second Republic (1931-36), and systematically neglected the region, especially its economic infrastructure.

H

owever, after his death, one of the cornerstones of the transition from dictatorship to democracy was the decision to grant a fair degree of decentralisation to Spain's 17 regions, with the Basque Country and Catalonia getting the biggest slice of the cake.

N

ow the Catalans want a referendum about the right to decide their own future. In response, some members of the ruling Partido Popular have said the whole country should participate in such a referendum, because they believe a majority would want Catalonia to remain a part of Spain.

I

f such a referendum were to take place, I think they might get a shock. I dare bet that at least 70 per cent of Spaniards want to see the back of the Catalans so that the government in Madrid can concentrate on solving problems that affect us all.

T

he Catalan problem won’t go away regardless of what Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and other people in his Partido Popular (PP) believe. In fact, it has gotten out of control and, unfortunately, has sidetracked the PP administration to deal with the nationalists’ demand for a referendum instead of tackling more pressing issues of the day, such as job creation and shoring up the economy. There are two options that Rajoy must explore: one is opening a frank dialogue with regional premier Artur Mas to discuss possibly giving more autonomy to the region and the other is to embark on a hard-hitting informational campaign so that Catalans, as well as Spaniards, know what is the solid truth about secession.

R

ajoy has agreed to hold highlevel but discreet talks with Mas to try to defuse this explosive issue, which has gained momentum in the international press after last week’s large turnout at national day celebrations where thousands of citizens joined hands to form a 485-kilometre human chain from the French border to south of Tarragona in support of holding a status referendum. But his best bet – and I am sure this option has been put on the table – would be to explain to Catalans why independence would not be such a great idea.

J

oaquin Almunia, the EC vice president, already fired the first volley of warnings when he reiterated on Monday that an independent Catalonia would not be able to continue in the European Union, shattering a dream for Mas and his supporters who believe that their region will soon become a full member of the continental club. Almunia didn’t say anything about the euro but bets are that a Republic of Catalonia will for the meantime have to come up with its own currency – a worrisome possibility for big business in the northeast region, not to mention the effect this could have on trade and commerce between its nearest neighbourhoods: Spain, France and Italy.

S

care tactics, some would say, but I beg to differ. Throughout the 1990s I lived on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, a US commonwealth where the political divisions concerning status are so palpable that you don’t need to see a party membership card to measure where one islander stands against the other. The debate on the island’s current status quo and its future is a long and exhausting one

that takes pages after pages of explanation. But diverting the economics behind secession, there are trivial but still very important arguments to all those with nationalist passions on either side of the block.

T

he independence movement among the 3.5 million residents in the US territory has lost much of its lacquer since the 1960s when far-left philosophy was more abundant on the Caribbean island. During the last referendum held in November 2012, independence garnered just over 5 per cent of the vote pitting the real battle between statehood and the current territorial status. The statehood movement has been growing but there are many in Washington – thanks to a nurtured lobbying effort on behalf of those against Puerto Rico becoming the 51st state – who are putting stumbling blocks in Congress so that lawmakers won’t approve a federally sponsored referendum or plebiscite.

O

ne of the arguments against statehood, as insignificant as it may seem, is that Puerto Rico would lose all rights to send its own sports delegations to the Olympic Games and other international competitions. There would no longer be a separate Miss World or Miss Universe candidate, and the island’s professional basketball team would be absorbed by the NBA. Frivolous issues, indeed, but they do touch the hearts of – citizens with national pride regardless if they are state-hooders or independence supporters – in a painful way.

T

hat “silent majority” – the people who Rajoy and his PP officials refer to who did not come out for the Diada – are also concerned about losing EU backing. Catalonia may gets its own beauty queen and sports delegation but it could lose out on the euro – something that neither the nationalists nor the antisecessionists are willing to give up. There is common ground for discussions and the Rajoy administration must snatch this opportunity to discuss issues that are secondary in this wide debate to help break the silence of those who refused to form that human chain.

The Jukebox rules in Spain... Is yours legal? Generally speaking, public places world-wide, like bars, restaurants and clubs have a legal obligation to pay “economic compensation” for the use of the music they play. Musical content – unless given away freely – belongs to someone, be it Paul McCartney, Warner/Chapple (Warner Brothers) or the deceased Michael Jackson. Even “Happy Birthday” belongs to someone and – by rights – if you want to play it or even sing it in public then you should pay a small amount to the owners to do so. It is as simple as that. It's about copyright and when all added up, it comes to very big bucks.

Theft of intellectual property and counterfeit is taken equally seriously in Spain – from the elusive “looky-looky” man with his arm full of CD's, sunglasses and knock-off Gucci handbags to the dangerous trade in fake medicines. Music is just the same, musical content is

protected by “intellectual property rights”, and the management of these rights falls to one or more of eight management entities approved by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.

One of them is the Association of Intellectual Rights Management (AGEDI). They are the ones responsible for granting authorisation to operators who want to load musical content – audio tracks or music video – on to any jukebox that is be operated in public. AGEDI who in turn work with the AIE (for performers), are also responsible for the collection of the fees, the inspection of jukebox installations and more importantly instigating fines to any operators, found to be operating unregulated jukeboxes with therefore illegal content. AGEDI agents inspect ad hoc or if they receive a report of an unregulated

jukebox. Their penalties are punitive and can be harsh, 2000 Euros per machine per month, and as this is considered to be a criminal offence, the possibility of prison (1 to 4 years) tacked on for good measure. Heavy, but that is how it is.

Econ is an AGEDI contracted supplier

Registered digital jukeboxes operators like Econ are contracted to both AGEDI and the owners of the bars or restaurants where a jukebox is sited and ensures the above obligations are met correctly. Econ install their “pay to play” jukeboxes free of charge. Customers just drop a coin in the slot, the machines are user friendly and there are thousands of music tracks to choose from. If their favourite tune isn't there, they can request to have it installed by pressing the appropriate button. All very clever stuff. The

jukeboxes

are

compact, measuring 55 x 70 x 28 cm and are securely fixed to a wall. They come with two loudspeakers as standard and a separate volume control. Each jukebox has a unique registered serial number and is fully AGEDI regulated and therefore legal. They are all on a profit share basis. The money taken by the machine is shared by the venue owner and Econ. Econ then assume responsibility for the paper work to the relevant authorities through the government approved management entities. When an AGEDI inspector walks through the door to inspect the jukebox, smile – if it’s an Econ it’s covered.

As well as locating profit share jukeboxes and pool tables, Econ also sell Wurlitzer and similar jukeboxes for personal home use, from the classic full size nostalgic model to mini retro jukeboxes – none of which need to be registered. To see the full

range of all Econ products including, pool and jukebox accessories have a look at www.econpool.com To have profit share “registered” Econ jukebox

SHOULD I MAKE A SPANISH WILL? WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES? Those foreigners who own properties, or those who have assets in this country, may well have asked themselves if it is necessary to make a will here in Spain.

Our advice would be that whenever a person has properties or assets in other countries it is advisable to make a will in each country, designating your assets according to your wishes to avoid conflicts and excessive expense for your inheritors.

To clarify, it is not obligatory to make a will in Spain, as the Spanish authorities recognise the validity of foreign wills. However, it is true that a will must be translated legally, with an Apostil, (this is an essential requirement for documents to be considered as public documents in Spain), but acts of voluntary

jurisdiction are not subject to Exequatur. That is to say that in the case of a person dying intestate in Spain, the assets are not automatically claimed by the government, the canons of inheritance are applied, whereby the law dictates which family members inherit and the proportion that is due to each member depending upon their relationship with the deceased. This process takes time and expense for the inheritors which could be avoided by making a Spanish will now.

A will in Spain must be signed in front of a Public Notary, who will confirm your identity, your capability to sign, and will testify to their conformity to your last will and testament in a written document, signed by both parties and then registered with the General Wills Register in Madrid, where ALL wills

signed in registered.

Spain

are

After a death the inheritors would be required to obtain a Certificate of the Last Will and Testament of the deceased, where all of the wills signed by the deceased in Spain will appear, including the one signed last, which in Spain is the only one that is valid. The Notary would be responsible to notify the General Wills Register in Madrid of the granting of the will.

In Spain a will must conform to the Spanish Law but the content should respect the provisions of the National Law of the testator, therefore allowing free choice of inheritors in the same way as the law dictates in the testator’s country of origin. The process of making a will in Spain is relatively

simple, especially if you use a lawyer to advise you and to prepare said document. The best way is to prepare the document is with two columns, one in Spanish and one in English, this way the testator can see clearly exactly what he is signing.

Another issue that causes doubt when contemplating making a will is the price. In reality making a will in Spain is very reasonable compared to other countries. In our case the cost to make a will is only 150 euro, all inclusive, per person. This includes: the meeting with the testator; the

recompilation of all the necessary information; the preparation of the document; assistance at the Notary office; the Notary’s fees; our fees; and VAT. Therefore, there’s no excuse for not making a will now.

If you require further information regarding this subject or would like to arrange a free

appointment to discuss your personal circumstances please do not hesitate to contact us either by mobile phone on 669 428998, by email on denise@manilvasolicitors.com or by our centralised number 952 901 225.

Legends raise cash for charities

Eddie Barnet

Ted aka Eddie Barnett died suddenly at home on Sunday 15th September. Eddie had been suffering from advanced emphysema over the last few months but, even so, his death was very unexpected .

Ted was a regular singer/entertainer on the coast and in Thailand for many years, latterly performing in the Salon Varietes productions and most recently directing some young vibrant musical reviews. Ted/Eddie was a supportive and big hearted man who would encourage the young singers and dancers - he was an inspiration to many. He will be a great loss to many people from various walks of life. Music was his passion which he readily shared. Born in Lambeth, London, he lived in Putney, was educated the London Oratory school in Knightsbridge and from there he entered the Army. He saw active service in the 2nd Parachute and SAS regiments serving in Aden, Singapore, Ireland and Borneo.

After leaving the services he returned to university and qualified in Environment Health then held the post Assistant Director of Environmental Services at the Royal Borough of Greenwich and retired after 26 years service due to ill heath. Ted / Eddie met Linda when she was 14. They were due to be celebrating their Ruby Wedding Anniversary. He was a loving father to Richard, bother to Sally and uncle to Gary, Sallyann, Claire, Dean and Karen.

Ted / Eddie most famously played Pharaoh in the Salon’s version of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor dreamcoat many years ago. His voice and his wonderful personality will be remembered by all who knew him long after his passing.

A Music Legends event was held in the grounds of the T.O.P.S. President's house on 7th September and raised €500 each for two local charities – the 'Gift of Life' Rescue Centre which rescues cats from the killing stations and re-homes them (mainly in the UK), and the 'Asociacion Prohuerfanos de la Guardia Civil' which is a benevolent fund for the families of officers who have been killed or

maimed during the course of their duties.

The evening was sold out and was a great success, with a large and varied selection of artists being portrayed, from Lady Ga Ga, Dusty Springfield, and Dolly Parton, to Status Quo, Kylie Minogue, and Madonna.

Thanks to everyone who came along and gave so generously.

Pets of the week

Some comments already on Facebook :

A special man who lit the room up when he walked in, kind and considerate, helpful and inspirational, music was his passion, he will be missed so much .

Yesterday as a few may know I lost my best friend of many years. This man Ted was a great proud soldier of the British army, an amazing husband to Lyn and father to Richard, a man that as soon as he walked into the room you knew he was there, someone with special qualities not many of us ever get. I am going to miss you so much you left a great impression on me and now there is a big hole but, I can fill it with great wonderful memories of our times together. Sleep my buddy.

To the most wonderful, talented and caring man I have ever had in my life... You believed in me and helped me become the dancer I am today. The opportunities to dance the most beautiful and brilliant dances I have ever performed, most importantly 'Mr Bo-Jangles'. I watched it this afternoon and cried many tears ... I owe it all to you Eddie Barnett, it's been MORE than a pleasure not only to call you my fantastic director of many fabulous shows but an amazing man who I looked up to and most importantly a friend,a true friend who will always still be there for me. I will take our memories and your brilliance with me in my heart wherever I go, around the world, in every performance I do, every show I take on. To call you legendary would be an understatement, I love you with all my heart and too your gorgeous, amazing wife Linda Diane Barnett ... All my love forever xx With you gone it’s like losing a member of the family. You were a great friend for me and I learned a hell of a lot from you. Put on a show in the stars my friend and rock their socks off. Forever rocking dude xx To the big man in the sky, much love xx

Theatre group FAMA Ball raises more seeks new than money blood The International Theatre Studio is casting its next production and is keen to attract newcomers to amateur dramatics on the Costa del Sol.

The play – ‘Opposite Sex’ by David Tristram – is a comedy based around four people with only one thing in common. The hilarity starts when the

precise nature of that common bond emerges.

‘Opposite Sex’ will be performed at the Atalaya Park Hotel, San Pedro, from Friday November 15th to Sunday 17th.

Anyone interested in being involved is invited to contact the director, Diana King, on 952 896 739 or 690 108 852.

Thank you to all who attended the FAMA Summer Ball. It really was a wonderful evening.

The evening raised a fantastic €2,400 and without the support you gave, obviously this could not happen. Please check out our facebook for photos of the evening soon to be showing. A huge thank you, and look forward to seeing

you at our Christmas Diner on the 13th December, at the wonderful venue of Valparaiso. This event raised more than money, it raised hope too!

We shall also be having a ladies lunch with a sale of clothes on the 17th October at The Horseman Restaurant in La Cala de Mijas, details to follow. Pat Coleman, FAMA

However, some did better than others and Alan and Marion Ellis took the first prize with an amazing 98%.

Spritualist Medium Are you in need of some guidance that you have had difficulty in getting elsewhere? Do you need some reassurance that your loved ones who have passed away are happy and at peace? Do you have some spiritually related problems to which you have not yet found an answer?

Johnathan Brown, Spiritualist Medium, will be appearing at Buzby’s from 8 until 10pm on Friday to try and give you the answers to your questions. He says that, as a medium he is clairsentient, clairvoyant and clairaudient which means he is able to communicate with people’s loved ones who have passed away to the world of spirit, giving them messages of comfort and reassurance that they are OK. “ I have devoted my life to helping and assisting others being a Lightworker and gave up my old life so I could assist others along through their

pathways forward through life.”

He adds that he knew from an early age that he was different and was aware of things that others were not and is able to communicate with the Spirit World, Angels and people’s spirit guides as well as doing concentrated healing, cleansing of Auras and negative energies as well as removing some spiritual entities. Johnathan tours the UK and is here in Spain at Buzby’s in Benalmadena for one night only so, if you would like to see what Johnathan has to offer, book your table on 645 404 911 or 628 617 658 now as this is likely to be a popular event. Also at Buzby’s this Sunday is a “Comedy Extravaganza” with the return by popular demand of Jack Daniels and regular K T Peters.

The world was in the grip of the Second World War for the first half of the decade and austerity for the second half. Despite the uncertainty the British spirit was in many ways defined by the events of the 40’s. The British stiff upper lip; the steely resolve not to be beaten and the atmosphere of pulling together for the common good.

the positives to come from those dark days was music. Such iconic figures as Vera Lynn, The Andrews Sisters and Glen Miller made their names during the 40’s.

MOVIES AND DVDS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2 0 1 3

DVD NEW RELEASE

Disconnect

Release date: September 17th

Director: Henry Alex Rubin Starring: Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo

A hard-working lawyer, attached to his cell phone, can't find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when their secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site.

MOVIES TO WATCH OUT FOR

   Directed by Roland Emmerich Starring: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal

The Emmerich template is large scale action shots, lots of spectacle and noise plus great visual effects and the director sticks to his tried and tested formula in his latest outing.

So, think Emmerich’s box office blockbuster Independence Day without the aliens and that’s the territory inhabited by White House Down. Tatum plays John Cale, an Iraq ‘vet’ now serving on the security team for the Speaker of the House on Capitol Hill. His big ambition is to

make the grade in the Secret Service, and he is called to the White House for interview and gets a visitor pass for his excited 11-year-old daughter Emily (Joey King). But his chances of success don’t look rosy when he discovers his interviewer is special agent Carol Finnerty (Gyllenhaal), an ex-girlfriend from college days who has some prejudices about him she cannot shake off. As he is leaving Cale gets caught up in a full scale invasion of the White House by a paramilitary

group, and finds himself separated from Emily and caught up in the battle for survival. US President James Sawyer (Foxx) had only a few days earlier talked about the ‘pen being mightier then the sword’ but discovers that this cuts no ice with terrorists.

A group of innocent terrified tourists are held the Capitol hostage, state building is blown to smithereens, and Sawyer and Cale join forces as they bid to survive, to find Emily, and somehow overcome

When Liberace finds himself a new lover, Scott is tossed on the street. He then seeks legal redress for what he feels he has lost. But throughout, the bond between the young

They are strangers, neighbours and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today's wired world.

Through poignant turns that are both harrowing and touching, the stories intersect with surprising twists that expose a shocking reality into our daily use of technology that mediates and defines our relationships and ultimately our lives.

Based on Max Brook's novel of the same title, World War Z takes place during the beginning of an outbreak.

Life for former United Nations investigator Gerry Lane and his family seems content. Suddenly, the world is plagued by a mysterious infection turning whole human populations into rampaging mindless zombies. After barely escaping the chaos, Lane is persuaded to go on a mission to investigate this disease. What follows

Problems and challenges that appear from nowhere seem to disappear with little or no real effort on your part this week. This is due to your ability to interact and function with others and your powers of attraction being sky high. Everybody seems to want to be around you and they all want something that only you can give. Your mind is locked into real value and you need to trust your instincts at this time especially when it comes to finances. Confusion and restrictions are all around you these days but as long as you do not get caught up in them or allow yourself to get erratic or desperate; you will be on the winning side of the fence. However, this is when new opportunities are most likely to appear, so it's a matter of remaining alert and maintaining your highest levels of personal honour and ethics. Get out there and let things happen, lighting can strike at any time. Your awareness levels are right off the chart this week, just by thinking about someone allows you to lock in and feel their feelings and perhaps even hear their thoughts. In some cases, this energy comes through so strong that you can confuse what you are picking up from others as your own thoughts and feelings. For that reason, do things with caution and moderation as time is on your side. You have so much personal experience working in your favour, you have been there and done it so therefore things are less likely to rattle you. Instead you have developed your skills to be fluid and adaptable and that is your current key to success. Roll with whatever happens this week as some unexpected events are likely to come your way. Your social skills and sense of humour will allow you to rise above any madness this week. Strong vibes of self confidence and competence are oozing out from every pore and although this is an excellent space for you to be in it can cause others who are insecure to feel somewhat threatened. Some may challenge your power, position or authority in some way, the key thing to remember is that you do not have to lower yourself or even have to try to defend yourself, it is all a matter moving forward towards your hopes, dreams and wishes. This is a time of beginnings whether it be long-term projects, goals or tasks or even pregnancies. Rewards take sustained work and time before they appear, therefore, you should not be looking for instant resolution or instant gratification. Instead, look down the road at your long-term hopes and dreams. Be calm even when most of what is happening is beyond your control.

LIBRA

There could be a natural fear that what is not real will somehow be removed or taken away from you. This can happen as everything appears to be finally going your way, what you have to do at this point is believe in yourself and in your talents and abilities. There is a renewed life force deep within yourself making this a very sensual time. Once you focus you can get just about September 23rd - anything done and completed. October 22nd

The past is over and the future did not get here yet, so all you have is the present moment and the things you do today determine what your life will be like in the future. You have at the moment won an internal battle and succeeded in making you much more approachable and down to earth. Like minded people cross your path and your personal uniqueness and originality sets you apart and gives you power.

No fear seems to be your motto this week, when others are tense and fearful your energy comes in the room like a bolt filling others with optimism and hope. This is more the result of knowing that you can handle just about anything that comes your way as your awareness levels are especially strong right now and you naturally tend to steer yourself away from problem areas.

You have all the skills and abilities to be the power behind the throne this week, you can expect the unexpected too as life changing events can take place in the blink of an eye. Others will want to get up close and personal with you because your life force is so appealing and attractive. Love and romance is high on your agenda making this is a good time to start a relationship or deepen an existing one. Being in the right place at the right time has lots of benefits as at the moment you naturally seem to be in time with the universe. Life is flowing quite smoothly right now and there is a strong element of fate and destiny taking place. Have the courage just to be yourself and resist following the crowd or public opinion. Take care of the usual duties, responsibilities and chores whilst connecting with friends and family as their support is key to your personal success. You are in a social and light hearted mood this week when the inner child wants to come outside and play. Avoid any heavy conversations or getting in the middle of an argument as this type of conflict will drag you down. By the weekend home and family issues come to the fore and need some attention. Make the time to have some fun and enjoy meeting others of a like mind as this will create a feeling of being on top of the world.

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

A creamy, pork casserole recipe that makes a refreshing change. Crème fraîche is a genuine Normandy product, and, whilst the half-fat version is not quite as delicious, it’s great for cooking with.

Normandy Pork with Cider Ingredients:

• • • • • • • •

1 x 180g jar apple sauce 1 teaspoon oil 1 teaspoon butter 1 medium onion, chopped 1 lb (450g) shoulder of pork 8 fl oz (225ml) dry cider 2 fl oz (55ml) cider vinegar salt and freshly milled black pepper

(Serves 2)

2 rounded tablespoons half-fat crème fraîche

Directions Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 3, 325º F (170ºC). First of all, cut the pork into one and a quarter inch (3 cm) cubes. Then, heat the oil and butter in a nine and a half inch (24 cm) shallow, ovenproof pan or casserole and cook the onion in it over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring now and then. Then increase the heat and add the cubes of pork and stir over the heat for a couple of minutes. The pork doesn’t need to be browned, just lightly coloured. Next, add the cider, cider vinegar and a

generous seasoning of salt and freshly milled black pepper. Bring everything up to simmering point and then transfer the pan or casserole to the oven and cook, without a lid, for an hour, by which time the liquid will have reduced considerably. Then, stir in contents of the jar of apple sauce and the crème fraîche and return to the oven, again without a lid, for a further 15 minutes. Try serving with new potatoes with butter and chives and some spinach, with a squeeze of lemon.

Ask Calvin and Sue: Hair & Beauty Dear Sue,

Could you explain to me the difference between Botox and fillers for me. Are they both safe and how long do they last? Kelly, Coin Dear Kelly,

Botox is a very diluted form of botulism and is injected into the beginning and end of the muscle which then over a period of time freezes the muscle so it can't move

and the wrinkle vanishes. Botox is suitable for the upper part of the face to remove lines on the forehead, the crows feet around our eyes, and the frown lines. It is virtually painless and incredibly quick to do. Botox was approved by the F.D.A. in the U.S.A. several years ago. As with any cosmetic procedure there can be side effects, a small bruise may be visible for a few days and occasionally there can be a drooping of the eyelid. Although

many people offer this service I strongly recommend it is administered by a doctor – I have a G.P. who visits the salon on a monthly basis and has done so for 12 years.

Fillers are entirely different, they work by literally filling in the wrinkle so you get immediate results. Fillers come in a variety of thicknesses so the depth of the wrinkle determines the thickness of the filler. There are several different brands on the market. A doctor can advise you on what thickness and quantity of product that will suit you best.

Botox will generally last 3 to 4 months after the first session but if you have it done regularly the results last longer as you get out of the habit of making the wrinkle. Fillers can last anywhere from 3 months to 18 months depending on the brand.

Dear Sue,

I like to have a manicure and pedicure on a regular basis, and have seen on your list a manicure with paraffin wax treatment. What advantage would it be to me having this treatment? Geraldine, Mijas Costa. Dear Geraldine,

Paraffin wax treatments are ideal for people with arthritis. The warm wax is great at giving mobility to stiff joints and helps reduce inflammation. It is also beneficial to people with very dry skins as it is an excellent hydrating treatment and can also be used on the face. It is painted on to the skin and left for a few minutes until cool and then removed leaving the skin looking radiant. As we can't reuse the wax in the salon I always give it to the client so they remelt it at home and will still be beneficial for another five to six treatments.

Dear Calvin,

My husband would like to grow a goatee. How does he go about starting to grow one? Betty, Benalmadena Pueblo Dear Betty,

When growing a goatee and moustache for the first time, I would advise that he lets the whole beard grow until there is enough definition to make the goatee stand out – obviously this is a different time scale for all of us. To shape I would first go for an oval shape as this is the easiest shape to start with. Dear Calvin,

I have been away in Denmark all summer and am desperate to get into see you as my hair is so long and out of condition. I wouldn't let anyone colour or cut it there. Can you suggest some products to help me get it back into tip-top shape and condition? Lise, Mijas Pueblo

Dear Lise

The summer brings a lot of elements that have dried your hair out. Exposure to sun, seawater, sand, wind and even a change of hardness of the water. A lot of advise is given out on how to protect our hair in the summer, but to be honest only a small percentage actually do it as we are too busy enjoying our holidays.

A good cut is essential to get the condition back to your hair, but also I would use a protein based treatment to help build your hair's strength and shine. If you have any questions for Calvin or Sue, you can contact them on email – Calvin, calton1@hotmail.co.uk Sue’s email address is aniathome05@gmail.com If you don’t have time to email you can phone on 633 733 374 (Calvin) or 952 473 681 (Sue).

Health kick 'reverses cell ageing' Going on a health kick reverses ageing at the cellular level, according to researchers at the University of California. In their study, they looked at just 35 men with prostate cancer, and found that 10 men in the group who had switched to a vegetarian diet and stuck to a recommended timetable of exercise and stressbusting meditation and yoga had demonstrably younger cells in genetic terms. The changes related to protective caps at the end of our chromosomes, called telomeres. Their role is to safeguard the end of the chromosome and to prevent the loss of genetic information during cell division. As we age and our cells divide, our telomeres get shorter – their structural integrity weakens, which can tell

cells to stop dividing and die. Researchers have been questioning whether this process might be inevitable or something that could be halted or even reversed. The researchers' study suggests telomeres can be lengthened, given the right encouragement. They measured telomere length at the beginning of their study and again after five years. Among the 10 men who made the lifestyle changes, telomere length increased by an average of 10%, and decreased by an average of 3% in the remaining 25 men. However, experts have said that telomere shortening is unlikely to be the sole explanation for human ageing, pointing out that humans have much shorter telomeres than primates and mice, yet live for far longer.

Probably one of the best known stand-up comics in the world...

The Big Yin undergoes prostate surgery … and also reveals he is suffering from Parkinson’s disease Actor and Comic Billy Connolly has announced that he has undergone surgery for the very early stages of prostate cancer. The operation was a total success according to his spokeswoman and he is now fully recovered.

The 70-year-old has also been diagnosed with the “initial stages” of Parkinson’s Disease and he is receiving the “appropriate treatment and will continue to work on TV and stage”, she added. He is said to be starting a TV series in the near future and an extensive theatrical tour of New Zealand in the New Year.

Glasgow-born Connolly, has been affectionately known as the Big Yin since adolescence to differentiate between him and his father who was a big, strong man. The pair were known as Big Billy and Wee Billy – until Wee Billy got bigger than Big Billy, thus The Big Yin (Big One). He did an apprenticeship to become a boilermaker and worked on oil rigs in Nigeria and in the Clyde shipyards in his youth. But the stage was to beckon to The Big Yin and he started singing folk songs and doing stand-up comedy, eventually being named as one of the best stand-ups in the world. He has also presented a series of documentaries and

has become in great demand for his character acting in recent years.

He married New Zealand comedienne and psychologist Pamela Stephenson in 1989 having been living with her since 1981. He says of his marriage: "Marriage to Pam didn't change me; it saved me," he later said. "I was going to die. I was on a downwards spiral and enjoying every second of it. Not only was I dying, but I was looking forward to it." Her biography of him, Billy, was a huge best seller. Connolly was made a CBE in the 2003 Queen's Birthday Honours and awarded the

freedom of his home city in 2010.

He is one of around 127,000 Britons with Parkinson's disease, which is caused by a loss of brain cells that produce a chemical messenger called dopamine. There is no known cure although symptoms can be alleviated somewhat in most cases. Earlier this year, Connolly admitted he had started to forget his lines during performances. He said at the time: "This is ******* terrifying. I feel like I'm going out of my mind."

Poor old Mr Ed, again Beckham twins Ed Milliband that is. No sooner had he got himself in hot water with thoughts of dropping the Trade Unions than along comes someone who wants to take his Parliamentary seat that he won in the last election with a 10,909 majority. And that person is … none other than Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson! Mr Clarkson, 53, who is famous for opening his mouth and decidedly putting his foot in it tweeted over the weekend: "I'm thinking I might stand in the next election as an independent for Doncaster North, which is where I'm from. Thoughts?"

John Prescott, Labour’s former deputy Prime Minister replied to the presenter: "Why not stand in Chipping Norton, where

you live now? You've got lots of mates there."

Another Twitter user said: "I think you should. At least then there would be one politician who isn't afraid to speak his mind." Mr Clarkson has had to apologise a few times in the past for his “Foot in mouth disease”. One of his more famous remarks was when he referred to

Gordon Brown as the “oneeyed Scottish idiot”. He had to apologise for that one.

Still, if he gets in it should make PM’s question time a lot more interesting – unless they can pass a law to gag him!

So, will it be Clarkson for PM or is it just another publicity stunt?

It’s not the first time the Beckhams have stepped out in twin outfits – there was that episode with the biker gear, if you remember – but the Beckhams caused a storm at the London Fashion Week’s recent party by sporting black dinner suits. His was the traditional two piece with white shirt (no dickie bow though it was just a straight slimline black tie... shame, they look sooo good when they are undone!) and hers was slim-legged trousers with a satin shawl collar jacket under which she sported a black low V-necked top and, as usual, great shoes.

The Beckhams were recently named “Most Stylish Family” and Victoria has been restyling herself in a more

masculine wardrobe it would seem. She was recently spotted a couple of times wearing black, just below the knee trousers. Some have been calling them culottes but

they are, of course, quite a different style.

Nevertheless, the couple are stepping out in high, rather lovely, sophisticated style.

Doc:

An investigation into the clothing industry, to see whether things have changed since last April's collapse of Bangladesh's Rana Plaza, in which more than 1,000 garment workers died. Richard Bilton finds evidence of an industry in which profits are still being put before safety, discovering people working 19-hour days, security guards who lock in the staff and factory owners who hide the truth from western retailers.

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

Opinion

Sue Barnes President S.E.A.R.C.H We would like to thank THE NEWS for publicising our garden party on September 7th in aid of S.E.A.R.C.H. (Spanish Equine Association for Rescue Care and Homing). It was very well attended with people travelling from as far afield as Torre del Mar, Istan and Estapona who all said they had read about the event in the NEWS. The power of the press is amazing!

It has been said that there were too many fundraising events on that night. This is the fourth year that we have held a garden party on the same weekend. It is the last summer weekend considered to be "safe" to hold an outdoor event and even then on the day rain threatened. Fortunately it stayed dry and the party went ahead. It was so well attended that we were unable to take late entries and

Brian Johnston In reply to Kenneth Blythe, my first point is that our summer weather this year has lasted well over 10 weeks already, but did not hit the really high temperatures of last year.

The summer weather is in my opinion still with us with 28C day and 22C night temperatures which bodes well for September,

Obviously the company carrying out the work have assessed what they will get out of it and have gambled on getting a

apparently the other events were also well attended, so there are enough people to go around. A huge thank you to our volunteers, and all the people who came to make the evening a great success. We raised enough money to buy hay and feed for the horses for the next couple of months.

Benalmadena

although the highly accurate “The News " forecast had a couple of rainy days threatening last weekend.

However I do agree with Kenneth inasmuch as we can now enjoy a stroll along the prom (Paseo Maritimo ) in the comfort of a cooling breeze, but the winter he yearns for is still a long way

Stephen Helier I have been watching on various news programmes the re-floating of the Costa Concordia which, they say, is the most expensive salvage operation ever.

rather large profit from all their efforts.

One newsreader came out with the inane comment when we saw the damaged side of the ship come out of the water: “What do you think they felt like when they knew their loved ones had been on that side of the boat?” One assumes that this person has had no training in compassion from anywhere. What does he think they felt like? Terrified of course! And for those who got out of there alive and have seen where

off, so long summer!

the

Editor says: It is a well known fact that, pretty much whatever the weather, we poms are going to moan about it. This week has, so far been ideal weather for me – a bit sunny, a bit overcast, a bit breezy and a bit cooler. The best time of the year!

Sotogrande they were and realised what could have happened, I think they are probably feeling a profound sense of relief that they got out in time.

It astounds me sometimes what newsreaders say, apparently just to fill in a bit of silence and wonder what on earth must be going through their heads when they make such comments. I strongly suspect that the answer would be absolutely nothing at all!

Ted Manager Elviria I read in last week’s copy of The News a comment from someone complaining that there were four different events to chose from on one night in Coin last weekend. Well, all I can say is: “Think yourselves lucky up there that you have so much choice!” I suppose you could say that us Costawallers have choices to make all the time but I remember a time

when Coin had one gas station, one supermarket and a scattering of notvery-good caffs. (No, I haven’t spelt it wrong – you couldn’t refer to them as anything else back then.) Now you have loads of entertainment, good restaurants to choose from, three gas stations and, OK, the Centro Comercial leaves something to be desired but at least there is one. Stop moaning!

Comment By Ken Campbell

The Andromeda Galaxy

T

Look up at the night sky and every star, planet, nebula and every object that you can see is a part of our galaxy, The Milky Way. hat is, nearly every object you can see. If your sky is really dark and you know where to look then there is one object that is not a part of our galaxy, this is the Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda Galaxy is a separate entity 2.5 million light years away and is the most distant object that can be seen with the naked eye. ntil the mid 1920’s the common belief was that the Universe consisted of everything that lay in The Milky Way. All of the ‘fuzzy blobs’ were thought to be nebulas or clouds of gas that were part of our galaxy, telescopes at that time were just not powerful enough to distinguish one ‘fuzzy blob’ from the other. It was not until 1925 that an astronomer named Edwin Hubble using the most powerful telescope in the world at the time and using the latest photographic techniques determined that some of these ‘fuzzy blobs’ were in fact galaxies in their own right separate from the Milky Way. ubble produced the first photographs of the Andromeda ‘Nebula’ that were clear enough to resolve individual stars within it thus proving that it was a whole galaxy and not a gaseous nebula within our galaxy. By studying the Andromeda Galaxy (as it was now called) Hubble was able to estimate the age and size of the Universe. Amazingly less than 90 years ago no one had realised just how big the Universe was and also that it was expanding. Conversely Hubble explained that if the Universe was expanding then surely we could ‘rewind’ time and cause the Universe to contract back to its origins and the beginning of time and space, more commonly known as ‘The Big Bang’. dwin Hubble died on September 28th 1953 and in recognition of his work it was decided to name the Hubble Space Telescope in his honour. The Hubble Telescope has produced the most wonderful images of deep space objects that Edwin Hubble could only have dreamed about; the image above is of the Andromeda Galaxy produced using the Hubble Telescope. he Andromeda Galaxy (also known as M31 or Messier 31) gets its name from being part of the constellation of Andromeda. It is not

U

H E T

the closest Galaxy to us but it is by far the largest in our neighbourhood. It is about 220,000 light years across and contains more than a trillion stars. It is spiral shaped with a condensed central bulge and several ‘arms’ that spiral away from the centre becoming less dense with stars as it nears the edges. Our galaxy is thought to look similar to this with our Solar System being located about three quarters of the way out from the centre in one of the spiral arms. 31 may be 2.5 million light years away now but it is moving and headed directly toward our galaxy at over 1 million miles an hour. It will collide with us in about 4.5 billion years time (I’ll set my alarm clock then). When it eventually collides with us both galaxies will merge to create one super sized galaxy dominating our local group. here is a simple way to find the Andromeda Galaxy (see pic below). You need a very dark, moonless sky away from streetlights. Allow about 15 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted then look toward the northeast and you should be able to make out a distinctive W shape of stars, this is Cassiopeia. Use the right hand V of the W shape to form a point and follow the point a short distance to the galaxy. Use binoculars and you will easily spot it, and just think, the light you are seeing has spent 2.5 million years travelling to you!

Lorenzo closes on Leader with Misano win Jorge Lorenzo pulled back another five points off title leader Marc Marquez's World Championship lead with a commanding Italian victory. Lorenzo, starting from second place on the grid, blazed into the lead on the opening lap and quickly established an advantage of almost two seconds on the Factory Racing Yamaha M1 from Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa.

The defending world champion was flawless as he followed up his Silverstone triumph with a less frantic victory at the Misano MotoGP, taking the chequered flag with a margin of three seconds from championship leader Marc Marquez. Lorenzo is now level on 215 points

with Dani Pedrosa, 34 behind Marquez with five rounds remaining. Marquez and team-mate Pedrosa battled all the way to the line, exchanging places in the closing laps before the series rookie pulled away to make sure of the runner-up spot.

Marquez decided against pushing over the limit in an effort to reel in Lorenzo, settling instead for a solid haul of 20 points to bolster his lead in the MotoGP World Championship. Braking errors in the first half of the race cost him valuable

November 1st, Ford said. The moves are part of a series of management changes announced on Friday, most of them in the United States. Samardzich will be responsible for many of Ford of Europe's operations, including manufacturing, product development, purchasing and environment and

£900,000 for the car Rod Stewart bought for £8,000

The 68-year-old rocker bought the yellow, 186mph car for £8,000 in 1972 on the back of hit single Maggie May and No 1 album Every Picture Tells A Story.

The supercar sparked a bidding frenzy at the Bonhams’ Goodwood Revival sale in Chichester, West Sussex, before raising £919,900. The Lamborghini is one of only seven right-hand drive Miura SVs ever made. Stewart asked for the car to have a cassette player with a record function – so he could store tunes that came into his head.

Stewart parted with the car in 1985. It later passed to a private UK collector.

time, and Marquez has vowed to learn from his mistakes. “Twenty points are so important. I know that in the beginning of the race is where I struggle a little bit more. Anyway I tried to do my best but I made two mistakes, completely my fault, inexperience,” he said.“I need to be a little more patient. I lost too much time when I went wide, but I recovered my feeling and then tried to close the gap to Dani (Pedrosa). I had a nice fight with Dani and when I overtook him I tried to go with Jorge, but it was too

much risk. It was right on the limit with ten laps to go and already I was a little bit tired,” added Marquez.Valentino Rossi, who started from third place on the front row, was unable to make it onto the rostrum at his home race as the nine-time world champion finished in a lonely fourth on the second of the Factory Yamahas. After being off the pace all weekend where he even had to take part in

qualifying 1 on Saturday, Tech 3 Racing's Cal Crutchlow fought out an entertaining duel for fifth place with Stefan Bradl on the LCR Honda, with Crutchlow holding the position for much of the race until Bradl made a decisive pass stick on the last lap of the race. Unlike factory Yamaha riders, Crutchlow and team-mate Bradley Smith do not have the new seamless shift gearbox.

Hamdaoui hat trick in Costa Del Sol Malaga five star show Charity Cricket Fest Malaga 5-0 Rayo Vallecano After the international break it was back to La Liga action for Malaga in a must-win game to kick start their season with 3 points.

Malaga started well creating three corners in the first 5 minutes, and ex Malaga keeper Rubén saved well from a Pedro Morales shot. Another corner was headed just wide by Angeleri as Malaga pushed hard for an opening goal. Rayo came into the game and created a great chance, Larrivey found space in the box to slide a pass across the 6 yard box but Trashorras failed to find the target. On 31 minutes Malaga were in front, a

great long ball found Antunes on the left wing and his inch perfect cross found El Hamdaoui in the box to volley home, a great start to the Moroccan’s debut game.

Nine minutes later Malaga doubled their lead. Another great move between Morales and El Hamdaoui found Portillo who could not miss from close range. Just after the break the game was made safe when Eliseau curled a shot into the back of the net from just outside the box. El Hamdaoui scored his second of the game when he slotted home a cross, and then on 67 minutes the on-loan Fiorentina forward

completed a great hat trick beating the Rayo defence and firing his effort past Rubén at the near post. With 23 minutes still on the clock more goals looked on the cards but the game petered out with just various half chances for both sides. El Hamdaoui was replaced on 83 mins by Samuel, and left the field to thunderous applause. A great first home win for Malaga and Bernd Schuster that moves Malaga to mid table in La Liga. Their next game is Saturday away at Real Sociedad, with kick off at 4pm. Report by Scott Forbes

Wayne’s Weekly Poker Tips Amir Lehavot, (pictured) who is second in chips heading into the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event final table, tweeted on Monday that he is selling 30% of his action in the event. "I've generally been selling pieces for most live tourneys I play that are $5,000 or above in buy-in," Lehavot told PokerNews on Monday. "Selling pieces is something I'm very familiar with; I thought I would likely sell some pieces once we reached the final table."

Lehavot says that he currently has 80% of himself in the Main Event his parents have 10% and a "long time friend and investor" has the other 10%. The 2011 WSOP bracelet winner is selling

his Main Event shares at Independent Chip Model (ICM) value. Using ICM, you can calculate the dollar value of each players' stack, and after subtracting the ninth-place money that all of the players have received already, Lehavot's stack is worth $2,924,800. In order for his investors to profit, Lehavot will have to finish third or better. If he finishes in fourth place, they will essentially break even.

"I think my accomplishments speak for themselves," Lehavot said when asked if this was a good deal for potential investors. "I'm an

On the Thursday 26th, Friday 27th & Saturday 28th September the Cartama Oval will be hosting the biggest cricket event in its history. This year there will be six teams taking part – four teams from the UK, one from Holland and one from New Delhi India.

The three-day event will have non-stop cricket from 10am until 6pm in the evening. There will be three exciting 20/20 games each day.

Schedule Of Play Thursday 26th September 10.00 Rampside CC (Cumbria UK) v Rugby CC (Warwickshire UK) 12.45 Chiswick & Latymer CC (Middlesex UK) v Turf India CC (New Delhi) 15.30 TCC Zamigos (Holland) v Ruislip Victoria CC (Surrey UK)

experienced accomplished MTT player and believe I have an edge over the table." In his marketplace thread, Lehavot compares this investment to buying pieces before a tournament begins. "I understand that investor ROI is quite limited here, i.e. the best case scenario is a 2.6x return. The downside is also significantly lower than when typically buying action, 84% of the time investors are going to get at least 30% back, etc. Basically because it’s the FT already the variance I’m transferring to investors per $1 is much smaller than when buying action at the beginning of a tourney.”

When asked about the importance of the title "Main Event champion," Lehavot told PokerNews, "It would be great obviously, but I'm really not focused at all in thinking about what if situations like this. In my experience that is not constructive or useful, I rather focus on preparing for the final table and then just playing one hand at a time."

PFA, shocked and saddened at death of clinic co-founder Peter Kay

Peter Kay, co-founder of the Sporting Chance Clinic – which treats professional sports people dealing with drink, drug, gambling and other behavioural problems – has died. Kay set-up the centre with former Arsenal captain Tony Adams, who dealt with alcoholism during his career, in September 2000.

Johnson, on 16 under, finished two ahead of Nick Watney and three better than third-round leader Jim Furyk, with Tiger Woods seven adrift. Furyk, who became only the sixth player to card a sub-60 round when he fired a second-round 59, has now squandered his last six 54hole leads. Johnson, who was angered on Saturday

Vuelta winner's team angry at drug test 'mix-up' Vuelta a Espana winner Chris Horner has missed a random drugs test – but his Radioshack team have blamed testers for the mixup.

Horner, 41, became the oldest Grand Tour race winner on Sunday. The American was not at his team hotel when testers arrived on Monday, but Radioshack say he had

told authorities about his change of address. They even released an email from Horner to the testers which they say backs up their claims. "The management of Radioshack wants to clarify the situation about the alleged missed out of competition anti-doping test of Chris Horner," said a team statement.

Stephen Lee found guilty of Shane Watson century seals Aussie series win snooker match-fixing Stephen Lee has been found guilty of match-fixing charges in what officials have called "the worst case of snooker corruption we've seen".

His penalty will be announced on 24th September, with snooker's governing body expected to push for a life ban. Lee, 38, denied the allegations, which concerned seven games in 2008 and 2009,

Shane Watson hit a brutal century as Australia beat England by 49 runs in the final one-day international to win the series 2-1. His 107-ball 143, allied to Michael Clarke's 75, propelled Australia to 298 all out on a true Southampton surface.

alistair brownlee says brother Jonathan is a 'tactical numpty' Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee says brother Jonathan threw away the world triathlon title by being a "complete tactical numpty" during his battle with Spain's Javier Gomez at the Grand Final in London.

Mark Halsey fears an under-pressure official could take own life Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey fears an official may commit suicide if referees do not get more help to deal with the pressures of the job. Halsey, 52, retired at the end of last season, and made the claim in his book, serialised in the Sun. "It will not be long before a referee has a nervous breakdown," he said. "I also believe that if we do not do something to help referees with mental health and stress issues, then we could see a suicide."
