Madeleine response 'overwhelming'

Scotland Yard has suggested that her disappearance bore the hallmarks of a "preplanned abduction". DCI Redwood, the senior Metropolitan Police investigating officer, said a

number of men had been seen by witnesses in the area on the day Madeleine vanished and one theory was they could have been carrying out reconnaissance. He said they wanted to track down men seen "lurking suspiciously" near the McCanns' apartment block. Detectives have released two e-fit images of a man who a family had seen with a blond-haired

DCI Redwood said he could be the man who took Madeleine – but there could also be an innocent explanation. He added there had been a four-fold increase in the number of burglaries in the area between January and May 2007 and one possible scenario was that

Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have said they had an "overwhelming response" to an appeal on the BBC's Crimewatch programme. Madeleine, from Rothley, Leicestershire, was three years old when she disappeared from her parents' holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal on May 3rd, 2007.

Last Saturday we were supposed to be at the annual Masked Ball. Unfortunately, due to lack of ticket sales it had to be cancelled and this is a real shame as everyone had such a great time at the first one in 2012 but, not a lot of point in going ahead with just me, hubby, the organisers and the dog I suppose! Still, soon be Christmas and we’ll all be rushed off our feet again... I can hear you all groaning from here... STOP IT!! On Friday lunchtime I’ll be doing my talk at the PAD Ladies lunch being held at the La Plaza Italian Restaurant behind Supercor on Riviera at 1.30 in the afternoon. I asked Lisa of PAD what she wanted me to talk about and she replied: “Anything you like,” so I haven’t got a clue what I’ll be doing yet. If you’re coming along (tickets for the 3-course lunch are €16 from Lisa on 658 351 642) I’ll see you all there by which time, hopefully, I’ll have come up with something or we can do a questions and answers doodah.

interesting afternoon! Jackson, our puppy has now get the equivalent of the “terrible twos”. He has this idea that he can steal anything he likes – shoes, clothing, mobile phones etc., – and if he can get it as far as his bed, that makes it his. Everything in the house is now being elevated out of his reach. Hanny, our older and much bigger dog turned the tables on him the other day and started chasing him all round the garden, much to Jackson’s surprise but, once he’d got over the “hang on, this should be the other way round” bit, thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is becoming bonkers!

DCI Redwood also revealed it had been a "revelation moment" when police discovered that a man seen by the McCanns' friend Jane Tanner at 21:15 was almost certainly an innocent British holiday-maker collecting his two-year-old daughter from a nearby creche. He said: "Our focus in terms of understanding what happened on the night of 3rd May has now given us a shift of emphasis. We are almost certain that the man seen by Jane Tanner is not Madeleine's abductor. It takes us through to a position at 10pm when we see another man who is walking towards the ocean, close by to the apartment, with a young child in his arms." The Crimewatch appeal

Prince calls for unity on National Day After standing in for his father at the National Day parade in Madrid for the first time on Saturday, Crown Prince Felipe said in an address afterwards that October 12th was above all “a day to reaffirm our commitment to a shared future of harmony and progress for all Spaniards”.

“If there is a lot that unites us today, there will be much more to further strengthen our ties throughout Spain and with the international community. Spain, with the throne at your service, will always continue to work to ensure that there is progress in the future, while overcoming any difficulty.”

It was the first time that King Juan Carlos had missed the annual

military parade, having been ordered complete rest by his doctors while he recovers from a hip operation performed last month – his fifth surgical procedure in two years. Felipe and Princess Letizia presided over the parade. This year, because her husband could not attend, Queen Sofía was also absent from the official grandstand as were Felipe’s sisters, the infantas Elena and Cristina. However, the queen and Elena joined the Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia as they received the nation’s top leaders and members of the diplomatic corps at a reception afterwards.

Meanwhile, in Catalonia, where calls for independence have grown

since regional premier Artur Mas vowed to hold a status referendum next year, thousands joined a National Day parade waving Spanish and Catalan flags.

It was an answer to the massive turnouts on – September 11th Catalonia’s own national day – when hundreds of thousands of Catalans held hands in a 400kilometre human chain across their region to press the Spanish government into letting them vote on

breaking away and forming their own country.

Three million live in Controversial education law passed dire poverty Thanks to its absolute majority, the government was able to pass its controversial draft bill overhauling the Spanish education system last week, despite opposition from the 11 opposition parties who have called for the bill, known by its acronym LOMCE, to be thrown out in its entirety.

More than three million Spaniards are now living in dire poverty – that is, on a monthly income of under €307 – according to a report by the Roman Catholic charity Cáritas.

Its recent Living Conditions Survey shows that the percentage of the population now living below the breadline has almost doubled from 3.5 per cent in 2007 to 6.4 per cent last year.

The charity speaks of a “second wave of poverty and social exclusion,

exacerbated by the government’s austerity drive and spending cuts, accompanied by continued high unemployment with increasing numbers of jobless no longer entitled to state benefits". The report also highlights growing inequality in the country to the highest levels in Europe.

It points to figures from the European Union’s statistics office Eurostat which show that the richest 20 per cent of the population in Spain have 7.5 times more wealth

than the poorest 20 percent. “We are approaching a model of social Darwinism, with few winners and lots of losers,” the report says.

Cáritas’ report was released a day after Swiss investment bank Credit Suisse published its latest Global Wealth Report, which showed that the number of millionaires in Spain rose by 13 per cent to 402,000 between mid2012 and the middle of this year, despite the country’s longest recession in half a century.

The legislation marks the seventh change to the

education system – six of them by previous Socialist governments – since the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1975 and the transition to democracy. One of the most controversial aspects of the bill is the proposal to eliminate a civic – education course introduced by the Zapatero government – and replace it with a

Catholic Church-backed proposal for an alternative to religious education: a course on cultural and social values. Opposition parties claim the law is ideologically driven and will fail to address the deficiencies of the current system, which has a dropout rate of 24.9 per cent of students after completing their basic secondary education.

Quakes could cost €1.3 billion

The government may have to fork out €1.3 billion in compensation if it is forced to permanently close down the Castor off-shore gas storage facility that has been linked to more than 500 minor earthquakes across a 200-km stretch of coastline from Catalonia to Valencia since the middle of September.

The quakes, in a region not normally known for seismic activity, have been blamed on the recent

injection of gas into a depleted oil reservoir 1.7 kilometres under the sea bed and 22 km from the coast. The government ordered the operator of the EU-backed facility to shut down operations on September 26th, just two months after they began.

Industry Minister Jose Manuel Soria said the halt will remain in force "until there is an absolute guarantee of 100 percent safety for the whole

population,” adding that investigations were underway to determine whether the plant could be operated safely.

Prosecutors are now trying to determine if the government could be held responsible for negligence after it emerged that researchers' warnings of potential earthquakes prior to the plant’s approval had been ignored.

Wolves return to Madrid A wolf pack has settled in the recently designated Guadarrama National Park in Madrid, regional environmental technicians have confirmed, some 80 years after being hunted to extinction in the region.

Some have been detected there since 2007 but proved to have merely been making sorties from the mountains round Segovia, in neighbouring Castilla-Leon. Regional environment secretary Borja Sarasola said the presence of the pack, consisting of one family of two adults and three cubs, was an indicator of the region's "enviable biodiversity." Biologist and wolf expert Juan Carlos Blanco said the region will

never sustain a sizeable population: "The wolf can really only settle in approximately 30 percent of Madrid's territory, in those corners where conditions are still optimal." He also said they pose no threat. "They are what we call good wolves; they will not bother anyone and will pass largely unseen."

Farmers do not share Blanco's view – so far this year there have been 14 reported wolf attacks on livestock in the area, resulting in the deaths of 28 sheep and a cow. But the effect has been minimal – there are 40,301 cows and 16,367 sheep in the area where the wolves range.

Civil War 'martyrs' beatified

madrid

The oldest, an 86-yearold nun, was executed in the same year.

Beatification is the final step before sainthood. In the 1936-1939 civil war, the Church supported General Francisco Franco but in 1966 it apologised to the Spanish people for having done so.

Historians have estimated that about 500,000 people from both sides were killed in the civil war. After Franco's victory, Nationalist forces executed some 50,000 Republicans. Several thousand priests, monks and nuns were thought to have died at the hands of the Spanish republic's mainly left-wing defenders, who were very anti-clerical. The Vatican has regularly beatified Spanish Civil War victims. In 2007, Francis's

predecessor Benedict XVI staged the Vatican's largest previous beatification ceremony, involving 498 victims of religious persecution during the war. Sunday's event took place amid a growing debate about how to address atrocities committed during the 20th century. Last month, a UN delegation called on Spain to open a full public investigation into those who were executed on the Republican side, and to repeal the amnesty law passed in 1977 that prevents the prosecution of crimes committed by both sides before 1976.

Meanwhile, the Socialist Party and United Left (IU) plan to present a proposed resolution in

Spain probes Tibetan 'genocide' case

The Roman Catholic Church on Sunday beatified 522 people , most of them priests and nuns killed by Republicans during the Civil War.

Thousands of people attended the outdoor event in Tarragona, presided over by senior Vatican Cardinal Angelo Amato. A recorded video message from Pope Francis was played to the large congregation. Left-wing groups had objected, saying the ceremony amounted to a glorification of the Franco dictatorship. But the Church said those honoured were martyrs killed because of their faith. Those present included some 4,000 relatives and descendants of those being beatified. The youngest of the "martyrs" was only 18 years old when he was shot by militiamen in Madrid in 1936.

Parliament that will urge the Rajoy administration to locate and open within the next two years all the mass graves where thousands of victims of the Civil War and the dictatorship remain buried.

In recent years around 400 such unmarked graves have been opened from which the remains of nearly 6,000 people have been exhumed. But there are still another 2,000 clandestine burial sites in which nobody knows the precise numbers interred. The Historical Memory Law introduced by the Zapatero government had provided for financial aid to help families recover their relatives from these graves, but that part of the law was axed by the Rajoy government.

Judges at the country's top criminal court have ruled that they are competent to hear a case brought by the madridbased tibetan Support Committee who allege that China's former President Hu Jintao was ultimately responsible for actions "aimed at eliminating the uniqueness and existence of tibet as a country, imposing martial law, carrying out forced deportations, mass sterilisation campaigns, torture of dissidents". the Spanish legal system recognises the universal justice principle, under which genocide suspects can be put on trial outside their home country. But for Spain to hold the trial there is a requirement that at least one victim of alleged genocide must be a Spanish citizen. One of the activists, tibetan monk thubten Wangchen, is a Spanish citizen. Hu Jintao was the Communist Party leader in tibet in 1988-1992, when Chinese troops quelled mass protests.

World News Floods hit cyclone disaster area

Workers are battling to rescue around 100,000 people marooned by rising flood waters in the eastern Indian state of Orissa, after it was hit by the strongest cyclone in 14 years.

The death toll from the cyclone has risen to 27 in Orissa, with four people killed in the floods.

A flood alert has also been sounded in the neighbouring state of Bihar. Cyclone Phailin crashed into eastern India over the weekend with winds of about 125mph, flattening many coastal homes and uprooting trees. It also tore down power and communication lines and knocked out road and rail links, making an assessment difficult. But the evacuation effort – described by officials as

"the biggest in India's history for such an event" – ensured the death toll remained low.

Before the cyclone hit, the authorities moved – sometimes forcibly – nearly one million people into temporary shelters set up in schools and government buildings. The move has earned the Indian authorities rare praise for their preparedness. In 1999 a cyclone killed more than 10,000 people in Orissa. As the storm weakened on Sunday, a

Venice flood barriers pass first test

Barriers designed to protect the Italian city of Venice from flooding during high tides were successfully tested for the first time at the weekend , when four large floodgates rose out of the water creating a temporary sea barrier. Once completed, 78 mobile flood barriers will be raised from the seabed to shut off the lagoon in the event of rising sea levels and winter storms. The city suffers flooding on a yearly basis. Construction on the barriers began 10 years ago but has been hampered by delays in funding. The Moses project has already cost more than £5 billion and is not expected to be completed for another two years.

vast relief operation got under way to help up to one million displaced people. Separately, hundreds of thousands of people who were evacuated before the cyclone have begun returning to their homes.

Many, however, remain in temporary shelters because their villages and homes have been destroyed or inundated. An estimated 5,000 sq km of mostly paddy crops have been destroyed, causing a loss of some £220 million.

during the first half of this year. Most had been accused of having links to the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, which is fighting to overthrow Nigeria's government to create an Islamic state, and has launched a number of attacks on schools.

About 50 students were shot dead earlier this

month in their hostel, in an attack blamed on Boko Haram.

Living man ruled 'legally dead'

A man declared dead after he disappeared nearly three decades ago cannot now be declared officially alive, though he has returned home and is in good health. donald Miller of Ohio left behind a wife, two children and debts when he fled his home in 1986. He was declared legally dead in 1994, then re-emerged in 2005 and attempted to apply for a driving licence. A judge last week found death rulings cannot be overturned after three years, calling it a "strange, strange situation". He said he was prevented by state law from declaring Mr Miller legally alive and told him: "I don't know where that leaves you, but you're still deceased as far as the law is concerned." JApAn

Monkey's victims to be compensated

Residents of Hyuga in western Japan are to be offered compensation after being attacked by a wild male macaque, which was eventually captured after terrorising the town for one and a half weeks. Its 18 victims will each receive 20,000 yen (£120). The owner of the empty house where it was eventually cornered in a hunt involving 2,500 fire-fighters, police and licensed hunters, will receive 300,000 yen for damage caused to the walls and ceilings. A monkey attack alert on the local council's website has now been removed but patrols are continuing in the city in case of further danger. Macaque monkeys are common in the wild throughout Japan, where the densely-wooded hillsides provide a habitat.

Italy steps up migrant boat patrols Italy started to increase sea and air patrols on Monday, following the deaths of hundreds of migrants sailing in overcrowded boats from North Africa. At least 33 people died last Friday when their boat capsized between Malta and the Italian island of Lampedusa. A week earlier, more than 350 migrants died in another shipwreck off Lampedusa. Italy has previously called for EU help in dealing with the thousands of desperate migrants who wash up on

its beaches every year.

Many are families fleeing war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East who hope for a better life in Europe. But the recent loss of life has led to further calls for EU action. Italian Defence Minister Mario Mauro said the country intended to triple its presence in the southern Mediterranean. Italian media reported that unmanned drone aircraft based in Sicily could also be used to identify boats in trouble.

Foreign Minister Emma Bonino said the patrols would be to rescue migrants rather than "telling them to stay where they are".

In addition to coastguard and border police vessels, the Italian navy currently has three ships supported by four helicopters patrolling the area. It can also call on two surveillance aircraft with night-vision capabilities. According to the UN, some 32,000 migrants have arrived in Malta and Italy this year.

Designer shoes banned in anti-Islam ad Luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin has won a legal battle to stop his shoes being used in an anti-Islam campaign in Belgium. The poster by the far-right Vlaams Belang shows a woman wearing the iconic redsoled stilettos. Words ranging from "Sharia compatible" at the ankle to

"stoning" high up a thigh are marked at possible skirt lengths. The legs belong to Anke Van dermeersch, a senator from the party. A judge at the Antwerp court has given the party 24 hours in which to take down the posters. Miss Van dermeersch, a former Miss Belgium,

called the decision a political ruling. Her party has issued another advert, this time with the senator lying down and wearing similar-looking, but yellow-soled stilettos. There has been no comment from the designer, who said the original advert tarnished his image.

Migrants arrested in Moscow raids Police have arrested more than 1,200 people in a raid targeting migrants after major riots in Moscow. The "preventative raid" targeted workers at a vegetable warehouse, which was attacked by demonstrators searching for migrant workers on Sunday. The rioting began during a protest over the killing of an ethnic Russian man on Thursday, allegedly by a Muslim migrant from the North Caucasus. Police have released a security camera photo of the suspect, but have not identified him.

Media said the image suggested the man was of "non-Slavic appearance", leading nationalists to conclude the killer was a Muslim migrant from the Russian North Caucasus.

It is unclear what charges, if any, the migrants detained in Monday's raid would face.

Police were quoted as saying that they were investigating

Britain shocked by high EU migrant jobless figures There has been great concern expressed in Britain about the large number of jobless migrants from the European Union, the pressures they put on the National Health Service, and fears that Government welfare cuts will almost certainly see an increase in criminal activity. A new European Union survey has come as a shock and provided antiEU politicians with ammunition. It found that there are more than 600,000 unemployed migrants from EU countries living in Britain.

The Brussels’ commissioned report put the cost to Britain’s health service alone at £1.5 billion. Perhaps even more worrying is that new borders are being opened.

The level of EU jobless has already risen 42 per cent from 2006, with a particularly high increase of 73 per cent in job seeking EU migrants between 2009 and 2011, reflecting the belt tightening by employers during the recession.

Britain is a relatively small and densely populated island and most migrants have moved from countries that have space in abundance and great potential for economic growth.

Britain’s reputation as a soft touch has spread far and wide and some say the level of migration we have seen has not been good for migrants who already live in the country, or the general population, and many developing countries have lost skilled and semiskilled manpower urgently needed for economic growth at home.

Minister on bike waits on inquiry Cabinet Minister Andrew Mitchell could not possibly have envisaged what was to happen as he cycled up to the gates of Downing Street last September and the incident that followed is still the subject of investigation. Mr Mitchell resigned over the accusation that he launched a foul-mouthed rant at police officers guarding Downing Street when he asked to cycle through the gates, but he

was stitched up according to Sunday Times sources. The paper quoted a whistleblower who claimed that the word “plebs” was added to the original police log of the conversation Mr Mitchell supposedly had with the officer that was guarding the gates. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said that a file is now with the Crown Prosecution Service.

Will murderers be able to vote? The UK Supreme Court will this week tell two convicted murderers whether they have won the right to vote while they serve their jail sentences. Prime Minister David Cameron is opposed to giving prisoners the right to vote in Britain and the government has put forward a draft bill with three options: No vote for prisoners sentenced to four years or more, no vote for prisoners sentenced to six months or more, or a continuation of the existing ban.

Britain ‘starting to bloom,’ says Clegg Britain’s economy is “starting to bloom” according to Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who was announcing the latest round of state funding to support business expansion.

“We’re seeing very encouraging signs that we are turning a crucial

corner on our road to recovery,” he said. “Homegrown and British-based businesses are leading that charge for a stronger economy.”

Meanwhile Chancellor George Osborne has welcomed £800 million of investment in Manchester Airport, one of the biggest

developments since the Olympic Games. It could provide 16,000 new jobs.

Manchester Airports announced it was partnering Beijing Construction Engineering Group, Carillion PLC and the Greater Manchester Pension Fund on the ‘Airport City’ project.

Windfall for some

The perceived value of Royal Mail increased by over £1 billion during the first day of trading amid suggestions the Government sold it too cheaply. Some 700,000 small investors bought into the flotation and postal workers each have stakes worth £3,000.

Prime Minister David Cameron rejected the idea that the business had been undervalued. “Royal Mail is a very competitive market, it can now access capital and private sector management techniques,” he said.

Young cyclists risking their lives

There are concerns in Britain because a growing number of youngsters are using mobile phones and other devices while cycling, some of them sending text messages. A survey has shown 60 per cent of riders aged 14 to 16 were playing music, sending text messages and making calls while cycling. Nearly one fifth of the children involved had been involved in an accident or near miss situation and over 55 per cent cycled without a helmet.

A member of the Greenpeace ship’s crew seized during a protest in the Arctic has told his family he is expecting a long prison sentence in Russia.

Keiron Bryan, 29, a video cameraman from Devon, was based on the Arctic Sunrise which was protesting at oil exploration in the Arctic. Thirty crew members were

arrested by the Russian authorities.

He has been denied bail and has not been allowed to see other members of the crew.

The singer is to embark on a solo tour next year. In a statement he said: “A show like this needs to stay fresh and exciting so it’s a great opportunity for someone to come in and take the show past its incredible ten-year anniversary. “Next year is looking very busy for me and it is a full-time job so it felt like the right time to hand over the baton.”

First “home for a pound” keys handed over

The first of the “Home for a quid” scheme in the UK was handed over to 48year-old, self-employed taxi driver Jayalal Madde last week. He hopes to move into the home in the Granby district of Liverpool with his wife and 10 and 11-year-old daughters within 12 months. He was

one of over 1,000 people who applied for a house at £1 in the Granby Four Streets, Arnside Road and Webster Triangle areas. He is one of 20 people that are being given the home for just £1 in Liverpool in a bid to revive disused buildings in the area. The other nine of

this first phase will be contacted by the end of the week. The deal is that the new owners must refurbish the properties and that they must have finances in place to carry out the works. This is part of a scheme to revive some 1,000 properties in the city. Joe Andersen, the Mayor of Liverpool, handed over the keys. He said: "We've had an amazing response to this scheme and have been absolutely inundated with applications, so to already be in a position to allocate the first 10 homes is fantastic. Everything we are doing is about building

a sustainable future for our neighbourhoods – and we've placed that at the heart of the decisions we've made when looking at the applications. It's hoped the £1 home scheme will inject life back into neighbourhoods. We are only looking for people who have a genuine commitment to bringing these properties back to life and turning them into a home they are proud to live in. We're confident that Mr Madde is one such individual." Mr Andersen said it should not be forgotten that bringing the homes up to standard would be a “real challenge,” adding:

"Properties in these areas have lain empty for too long – but in tough economic times, we need to be creative and look at doing things differently." As part of the scheme applicants for the homes

had to live or work in Liverpool and be a first time buyer. They also had to be employed and agree to live in the property for a minimum of five years and not sub-let it within that time.

The most expensive horse in history The most expensive horse in history, at a cool £5.25 million went to Qatari Sheikh Joann Al Thani, son of the Emir of Qatar, when he bid at Tattersalls bloodstock auction in Newmarket last week. The un-named yearling filly is the daughter of Galileo, the 2011 Derby winner, and Alluring Park. She is also the sister of the

Epsom Oaks winner 2012, Was. Galileo is said to be the most sought-after stallion on the planet and the bid beat the old 2006 record of £4.83 million for Magical Romance. She will be trained in France by Andre Fabre, a 24 times champion trainer. Represented by Mandore International’s Nicolas de Watrigant the

Sheikh beat formidable bidder John Magnier from Coolmore. Nicolas de Watrigant said: "She is a magnificent specimen. We bought her sister last year and we think she could be special. We didn't want to miss this one – let's hope she is the next Treve. We didn't expect to pay that sort of price, but Al Shaqab Racing is keen to invest.”

Just got back from the UK and your Villa or apartment has that “tired” look about it?

Treve is the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner who also equalled the 2008 wins by Zarkava of the French Oaks, Prix Vermeille and the Arc in the same season. The Sheikh is fast becoming someone to watch out for in respect of his stable of horses and also owns Toronado, a top miler.

ERE Judge hassled Malaga goes to China by trade unionists With the number of Chinese visitors steadily increasing, Malaga City has decided to participate in Asia's most important tourism fair, the China International Travel Mart, for the first time this year.

The judge in charge of the investigation into an alleged multi-million-euro fraud, relating to a job severance payment fund known as ERE, was insulted and heckled by dozens of trade unionists last Friday, after she called in nine trade union leaders for questioning.

Union leaders later said they were not attacking Judge Mercedes Alaya personally but the way the unionists were called in. The Guardia Civil had to escort her from the courtroom to her car, while the Junta de Andalucia forbade any protest actions outside the judge's home. The incident was roundly condemned by all the political parties with the exception of the United Left. Earlier last week, Judge Alaya named Magdalena Álvarez, the vice president of the

Álvarez, who was minister in the government of Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, had been a key player in the setting up of the labourforce adjustment (ERE) fund by the Andalusian government from which an estimated €140 million was siphoned off between 2001 and 2010, although some put the total sum involved as €1,200 million.

IU demands Serón's resignation The United Left's provincial representative, Antonia Morillas, has asked the president of the Partido Popular in Malaga, Elías Bendodo, to demand the immediate resignations of Alhaurín el Grande mayor Juan Martín Serón, and his urban planning councillor Gregorio Guerra. Both men have been suspended from public office for a year after being

found guilty of accepting backhanders in the Troya corruption case. She also asked Bendodo if Serón will be allowed to run for mayor in the next local elections in 2015, as he has said he will do. Sra Morillas said that Serón would be controlling

Juan Martin Serón

acting mayor Antonia Ledesma "from the shadows, making a mockery of Justice and the people of the town". She said it was a great pity that "Alhaurín el Grande is going to stand out on the political map of corruption".

On October 21st, the Malaga delegation will

meet the directors of the tour operators Shanghai Oriental Peace International Travel Service, Shanghai Yoyo Network Technology and CITS Group Shanghai. The next two days will be dedicated to door-to-door visits before the delegation goes to the China International Travel Mart, to be held in Yunnan from October 24th to 27th.

Last year, 104 countries and regions had a total of 2,512 stalls at the Fair, which was visited by more than 100,000 people. Councillor Damián Caneda told a press

conference on Monday that the spectacular increase in the number of Chinese tourists – up 111 per cent this year – was not a passing trend. He said Malaga could not miss the opportunity of being Chinese tourists' gateway to Andalusia.

Spain currently ranks ninth in Chinese tourists' favourite European destinations, and Andalusia ranks third in their favourite destinations within Spain after Catalonia and Madrid.

Fuengirola’s Osborne bull is black again The Osborne bull in Fuengirola found itself caught up in a war of colours on National Day last Saturday. An unknown person or persons had climbed up the scaffolding at the back of the bull at some point during the night and painted a huge Republican flag on it. However, at some point in the afternoon another "artist" took advantage of the fact that the red, yellow and purple stripes of the Republican flag could easily be converted into the Spanish flag, by painting the purple part yellow. So the bull woke up a Republican and went to bed as a monarchist. However, the town hall sent its own "artist" along on Sunday to paint it black, as Nature had ordained.

There are two other Osborne bulls in Andalucia – in Vélez Málaga and Casabermeja.

All three were officially declared of cultural interest by the Junta de Andalucía in 2010.

Nearly 12,000 new companies A total of 11,815 new companies were registered across Andalusia in the first nine months of this year, an increase of eight per cent over the same period last year and one

per cent more than the national average for this year. Only Madrid and Catalonia had more new companies than Malaga – 14,906 and 13,380 respectively.

In the same period 3,005 companies closed down in Andalucia, the majority being small stores or real estate agencies.

Junta asks government to relax border controls

At a meeting with Foreign Minister José Manuel García-Margallo on Monday, Junta de Andalucia premier Susana Díaz asked the government to relax the controls at the border crossing because they were seriously inconveniencing some 7,000 workers from La Linea and surrounding areas who work on the Rock. She said the delays were having an adverse impact on the town's economy. The minister did not make any comment about her request but reminded Sra Díaz that the Junta would take part in any future negotiations with the British government on fishing, environmental and health issues. He criticised the Zapatero government for allowing Gibraltar to sit at the negotiating table alongside Britain and Spain, saying that in future Gibraltar would only be able to participate in very specific issuefocused negotiations, without naming what these could be.

The meeting came days after Spain had blasted what it called Gibraltar 's “false accusations” and “serious insults to the Spanish people” made at the UN last week, when Chief Minister Fabian Picardo, speaking before a panel of the UN Decolonization Committee on Wednesday, accused the Spanish government of “inciting racial hatred”.

It was time for Spain to “move on,” to tackle the real problems facing the Spanish people, and “to stop chasing quixotic windmills”.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry called Picardo’s assertions “obvious falsehoods” and reaffirmed that Spanish authorities have always acted within the law when it comes to stopping contraband and smuggling at the border, moneylaundering practices in Gibraltar, and protecting the high seas from environmental damage caused by Gibraltarian authorities.

expressions could hamper the goodwill between Madrid and London to hold a dialogue over Gibraltar.

Spain’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Fernando Arias, told the same Fourth Committee panel that Gibraltar’s independence was “unviable” without his country’s consent.

Mr Picardo used his fourth visit to the United states to win international backing for Gibraltar and Britain in the continuing diplomatic row with Spain. But in recent months Spain has stepped up its long-standing campaign to win back sovereignty over the strategic Rock that oversees the gateway into the Mediterranean from the Atlantic. "How can it be that the United States might not be concerned that there are 30,000 people in Gibraltar who are being bullied into changing their sovereignty?" Mr Picardo asked at an event hosted in Washington. "Issues like the Falklands issue and the Gibraltar issue

create instability amongst those who should be allies. If we believe in the principle of selfdetermination then the United States must defend that principle."

Mr Picardo said that he hoped Washington, which has remained neutral in the row, would offer a statement backing the staunchly pro-British Gibraltarians right to selfdetermination.

a spokesman said 6,562 people made false claim last year, a 16 per cent rise over 2011. He said figures for this indicated a 30 per cent rise over last year. He said seven out of ten of the false claims were vehicle-related, but those related to mobile phones were on the rise. He said mobile phone insurance was relatively new and the companies still had to perfect their detection techniques.

A

t the end of the book, he lists 44 Stalinist statistics, of which I will give only a sample. In 1919 – two years after the revolution took place – there were 21 registered concentration camps. A year later there were107. In 1930, by which time Stalin had eliminated all his rivals, there were 179,000 prisoners in the GULAG (work camps) system. When Stalin died in 1953 there were nearly 2,500,000, with millions being worked to death in the intervening years. On one day – November 12th, 1938 – Stalin signed 3,167 execution warrants. Between 1930 and 1953, he signed 786,098. In 1940, in one orphanage there were 212 children, who had to share 12 spoons and 20 plates. Number of peasants with land (kulaks) who died during the terrorfamine from 1930 to 1933 – 14.5 million. Number of Soviet children estimated to have died from 1932 to 1934 due to famine and execution, 3 to 4 million. Age at which a child could be executed, 12.

N

ow I'm not suggesting that the Communist-dominated United Front (IU, Izquierda Unida) could introduce a Stalinist-type regime here in Spain but their totalitarian tendencies can be seen wherever they get their foot in the door. Take the famous mayor of Marinaleda, Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo who has held the post since 1979, and turned it into what he – and The Guardian – calls a Communist utopia. The town has zero unemployment and no need for mortgages because the townspeople – all 2,655 of them – are living off EU subsidies known as PER, by which land workers get a full salary every month for just 45 days of work a year. However, many people who do not share Gordillo's ideology have moved away. For example, just a few weeks ago Gordillo refused to let a group of people use a public room at the town hall for a meeting. Why? They belonged to the Partido Popular.

n my one-woman campaign against a Communist takeover here in Spain, last week I recommended readers who need their memories of the Soviet Union refreshed to read Solzhenitsyn. I read his books way back in the 1970s when he was all the rage and I know full well that they can't be described as light reading – but there's no such thing as "light reading" where the Stalinist era is concerned. However, this week I can recommend a somewhat lighter novel – Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith – which gets across the full horror of the Stalinist era in the form of a detective novel.

Gordillo and some of his merry men are now awaiting trial for trying to take over land belonging to the Ministry of Defence – no respect for private property – although it's a while since they invaded supermarkets and walked off with cart loads of goodies "to be distributed among the poor".

H

ere in Andalusia we are extremely vulnerable. While there are only 11 IU members of the Junta de Andalucia at the moment, if regional elections were held tomorrow I'm afraid that number would increase. The Socialists can't seem to get their act together which means that for the moment we don't have a party that can present a rational left-wing political programme to voters. So the more left-wing ones – of whom there are plenty in Andalusia, which was a Socialist, Communist and Anarchist stronghold before and during the Civil War – will vote IU. This could also happen at a national level – which is what Commissar Cayo Lara is counting on. Lara calls himself the IU's national coordinator – general secretary is definitely a no-no because it sounds less democratic. I'm going to call him Commissar Lara from now on because he is after all a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. (Commissar, according to Webster's Dictionary: A Communist Party official assigned to a military unit or civilian group to teach party principles and policies and to ensure party loyalty.)

I

doubt if the United Left will get a majority in Parliament in the foreseeable future but only the Socialist Party can save us from them – and at the moment they're too absorbed in contemplating their navels. They had better snap out of it, because the United Left leader here in Andalusia wants to implement Hugo Chavez's 21st century Socialism here. I'll tell you more about the horrors of that next week.

he opposition Socialists, along with the United Left coalition, are expected to present in the coming days a draft resolution in Parliament demanding that the Rajoy administration move forward to help in the exhumation of the bodies of victims from the Civil War and the subsequent Franco dictatorship. Spain is one of a handful of nations – and the last in Europe – that hasn’t come to grips with its dark 20th century past. Subsequent governments – with the exception of the Zapatero administration – have ignored all attempts for closure to a painful fascist period because so many of those responsible are still living and make up a part of Spanish society’s high echelon. At the same time, many who remember their fathers, brothers and mothers being marched off to be shot during the cruel Civil War years are also getting on years. Time is running out for them to seek justice or at least just be allowed to recover the remains of their family members and be granted some type of peace before they pass on.

I

f there is momentum for such a resolution, the time is now ripe. Just last month, two envoys from the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances conducted a factfinding mission in Spain to determine whether the government is living up to its international obligations in helping resolve the scores of missing-persons cases on the books for the past 70 years. The envoys met with families, associations, and government officials in Madrid, Barcelona, the Basque Country and Andalusia. They summed up that everyone they sat down with showed frustration at the lack of interest by the conservative Partido Popular (PP) – many of whose top leaders come from families closely allied to the Franco dictatorship – at helping them exhume common graves, while at the same time putting up administrative barriers to prevent families from uncovering the truth. “It is regrettable the situation of impunity for cases of enforced disappearances that occurred during the Civil War and the dictatorship,” they said at a news conference in Madrid at the end of their visit. “There is no ongoing effective criminal investigation nor any person convicted.”

T

he Rajoy administration insists that the 1977 amnesty law passed with the restoration of democracy prevents the opening of any type of inquiry into the conduct

of past officials from both bands. It was a gentlemen’s agreement between the former Francoists and the exiled Republicans, Communists and Socialists to put their sordid pasts behind them and work to rebuild a nation, but at the same time ignoring the thousands of families who suffered during the Civil War and subsequent dictatorship. But in the 37 years that have passed since the amnesty rule was approved, there have been many changes in the way regimes from the right to the left are judged. Presentday Serbia – the site of Europe’s last bloody civil war between ethnic groups – is trying to make a halfhearted effort in the search for the 1,700 people still missing who may be buried in several mass graves on the border with Kosovo. Both countries have set up missing persons commissions – something that is only wishful thinking in Spain today.

T

here are thought to be some 2,000 mass graves across the Spanish countryside that have not been exhumed; only 400 have been uncovered with the help of volunteers and human rights associations who work on the weekends in the hope of helping families arrive at closures by giving their missing loved ones a proper burial. The Historical Memory Law, which was passed by the previous Socialist government, sought to set aside some public money to go to help such families in their search, but what little aid was available dried up when the PP came to office; the Rajoy administration blamed it on the across-the-board cutbacks.

B

ut now it will be impossible for the Partido Popular government to ignore its international and moral obligations once the UN Working Group presents its conclusions to the United Nations next year. At the same time, survivor associations say they are prepared to go to the European Court of Human Rights to compel the Spanish government to follow through in its duties. The PP instead is looking at ways to stall these concerted efforts in the hope that the responsible survivors, as well as the claimant families, will continue to die off before the government can no longer hold off taking any action. But that clock is incessantly running against Rajoy’s own time piece.

Queen’s Baton Relay started at Buckingham Palace Her Majesty The Queen launched the Glasgow 2014 Queen’s Baton Relay at Buckingham Palace last Wednesday at a public ceremony featuring Scotland’s greatest-ever Commonwealth and Olympic athletes, Allan Wells MBE and Sir Chris Hoy MBE.

The ceremony was attended by Commonwealth and Games dignitaries and broadcast live on BBC One. Sprint legend Allan Wells, winner of two Commonwealth Golds and the 100m Olympic sprint title at the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games, was the first athlete to receive the Baton from The Queen and start it on its historic journey round the 71 nations and territories of the Commonwealth, calling the 4,500 athletes to Glasgow for the Games. Participants in the event included HRH Prince Imran, President of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), Lord Smith of Kelvin, Chairman of the Glasgow

2014 Organising Committee and honorary baton bearers including successful and up-andcoming Scottish athletes and young people who have played a key role in the Glasgow 2014 story.

One of the honorary baton bearers taking part in the ceremony is Monica Dzodzi, an inspirational youth leader from a UNICEF project in Malawi, who is set to represent the young people of the Commonwealth and the ambitions of Glasgow, Scotland, the CGF and international charity partner UNICEF to deliver legacy and positive impact through sport both at home and internationally. Sir Chris Hoy, six-time Gold Olympian, double Commonwealth Gold medallist, and UNICEF UK Ambassador, was the empty Baton’s special escort as it made the processional journey down the Mall, accompanied by pipers to the ceremony itself.

The Queen’s Baton Relay is the world’s most engaging relay, a unique tradition of the Games that unites the two billion citizens of the Commonwealth in a celebration of sport, diversity and peace. It is a unique and dynamic opportunity for Glasgow and Scotland to connect with all nations and territories of the Commonwealth, sharing the excitement and opportunities of the forthcoming Commonwealth Games as well as its culture, creativity and enterprise. Flags from the 71 nations and territories of the Commonwealth were carried by children chosen by UNICEF UK, the world’s leading children’s organisation and international charity partner of the Games.

This was the first formal moment for the Baton, a unique object specially-designed for Glasgow 2014 in Scotland. The titanium, wood and granite creation

symbolises Glasgow and Scotland’s culture, history and innovation by combining leading-edge technology with traditional skills and craft. The Queen placed her message within it after which it became the Baton’s visual core, illuminated but unreadable until the Opening Ceremony.

The Baton returned to Scotland last Thursday 10th October where, in Stirling, the Scottish route and details of the recruitment of 4,500 Scottish Baton bearers was revealed. Later that day the Baton departed Scotland for Delhi – host city of the 2010 Commonwealth Games – from where it will visit EVERY nation and territory of the Commonwealth, before travelling the length and breadth of Scotland on the way to its final destination – the Opening Ceremony. It will take over 248 days and 198,000km for the Baton to visit all the

countries and it will be the first Baton ever to visit Rwanda.

The international journey of the Baton will be captured by global adventurer Mark Beaumont who will report for The One Show, BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland, along with BBC News outlets, and online. Below are some of the people taking part that you probably won’t have heard of before.

Spanish economy? There is a new law that directly affects people thinking of opening a new business and the amount they will have to pay in Social Security per month.

Up until now it was prohibitively expensive to “go self employed” as the amount you had to pay in Social Security, whether you earned any money in that month or not, was phenominal. However, the Spanish have at last come up with a new scheme that may well encourage those who have been thinking about attempting a new business recently and had

dismissed it before with the new rates making the whole idea a viable proposition.

Maria José Hevilla from Cohesa Consulting Asesores reports:

“The Law 14/2013 published the 28th of September, establishes reduced social security quotas for new selfemployed for a total period of 18 months. They should not have been selfemployed in the previous 5 years to register under this new scheme. These are the reduced quotas: About 50 euros for the

AGP, HND, CDG... where are we?! First launched 10 years ago, and now with its own downloadable mobile app, World Airport Codes claims to attract more than 20,000 unique visitors each day.

Taking feedback from users, the site has now been modernised by its developers, Fubra, and the search facility has been simplified to provide easier usability.

Anyone interested in facts and figures about airports, as well as those with practical needs such as locating nearby hotels, booking car parking or checking out destinations, now have an even larger wealth of data at their fingertips through World Airport Codes. Most who live here will know that AGP on your ticket means Malaga and while LHR for London Heathrow and LGW for London Gatwick, MAN for

Manchester and so on makes sense, where on earth did AGP come from? So, now if you want to know what the codes on your ticket as far as where you are likely to land mean, now you can get the new app on your phone to find out.

“Coming up with a new design was relatively easy, but with nearly 10,000 airport pages to complete with data, creating and adding more information about airports proved a more difficult task”, explains Fubra’s Head of Product, Hannah Bird. Fubra designed a programme, called Travel Wizard, to collate and automatically assign content to relevant pages on World Airport Codes. www.world-airportcodes.com For those of you who didn’t know the codes, AGP as mentioned, is Malaga, HND Tokyo and CDG is Paris.

Micky This is Micky who is a pure Yorkshire Terrier. He weighs approximately 3 kilos. His date of birth is 19.8.2011 and he came to FAMA from Paraiso where they stay for a while and, if a home isn’t found, they are put to sleep.

If you are interested in meeting Micky or any other FAMA dogs, call Pat on 620 354 885 or visit our website at www.famaspain.com FAMA’S policy is never to have a healthy dog put down, they have a home with us for life or until they are adopted.

first 6 months About 130 euros for the following 6 months And about 180 euros for another 6 months.

After this period they will start paying the general quota.”

This is a really good measure that Cohesa Consulting Asesores thinks should have been taken a few years ago. It will allow many people not to be so afraid of starting their own business and be part of the system again. If you would like to become self-employed and use the opportunity that

this law caters for, do not hesitate to contact: info@cohesa.es, 952 45 1318.

Perhaps the new quotas will also encourage people now working “on the black” to join the economy thereby gaining access to the Spanish health system and, eventually with enough years paid in, even a pension. The News says: “This is definitely a step in the right direction to get people off the dole, off the black economy and get the country moving again in the right direction.”

Age Concern España's work in helping Englishspeaking older people through local support and its national Casework Service has been recognised at the prestigious European Diversity Awards event held in London on Thursday 26th September 2013. The European Diversity Awards honour individuals, companies and community groups throughout Europe who have excelled in the field of diversity. Age Concern was one of eight charities from around Europe, which had been short-listed for their excellence in embracing and celebrating difference and diversity. Judy Arnold-Boakes, President of ACASA, the national service providing arm of Age Concern España said “Through our Casework service, we help older people who fall on hard times to get back on track. We don't judge anyone – our trained Casework Volunteers help older people from all walks of life who are having to manage very difficult circumstances, often caused by unforeseen changes such as ill-health, financial problems and isolation”. Age Concern was one of two Spanish charities short-listed for the

awards, the other being Apoyo Positivo, a Madrid based organisation which helps people with information and support about Aids. The winner was the UK's Amy Winehouse Foundation, which helps to prevent the effects of alcohol and drug misuse amongst young people. Eileen Dry, President of Age Concern España said “ We are honoured that our national and local work has been recognised, we are a small organisation which does a very big job. The European Diversity Awards helps to publicise our work worldwide, and the contribution of all our volunteers who work so hard on behalf of older English-speaking people living in Spain. “

Exhibition - “Oh My Goat!” in Malaga If you were out and about shopping in central Malaga last weekend you may have noticed a rather unusual exhibition taking place. Some 40 artists had been given exactly the same statue of a goat and were asked to paint it any way they liked. The results have been truly amazing and well worth the trip to have a look.

Urban street art has certainly taken on a new meaning with some stunning results such as those shown in the fascinatingly different pictures on this page.

The caprine industry in Malaga has a turnover of 90 million euros a year. There are around 300,000 goats of the Malaga breed in Spain of which 200,000 are in the province of Malaga, producing milk, cheese and meat.

You can see the multicoloured goat statues along Calle Larios, that’s the pedestrian street right in the heart of old Malaga, near the Port that has the lovely Lepanto cake shop on it!

This profoundly gripping film written and directed by Brandon Slagle was nothing short of brilliant. Slagle took the infamous story of Elizabeth Short, otherwise known as The Black Dahlia, and gave it a uniquely haunting twist that is guaranteed to thrill viewers of multiple genres.

Slagle gives us a brilliant re-imagining of occurrences regarding the infamous murder in 1940's Los Angeles, and how consequences still permeate through current times. Some of the understated images, and character interpretation speak loudly.

This film is graceful, elegant, dark, and stays with you long after viewing. It is truly a diamond-in-the-rough, and sets what should be a new tone for horror. Definitely worth seeing

This is a week to break free from restrictions that have been holding you back, you are likely to find common ground with someone who can help you deal with the things in your life you have outgrown. A more fulfilling era is around the corner so pay attention to the signs and signals that are around you. Travel is a possibility or you may consider making a journey to see someone special.

It could feel as if you are being tested to be strong and not give in to temptation this week. It is all about having the courage of your convictions to rise above any noise that could sidetrack you. There are some major changes on the horizon and you need to pull together with those that you trust. Love and romance are highlighted and this can be a wonderful and affectionate time.

Your energy levels could be low right now so try to get extra rest when you can, your body needs time to catch itself up. There could be important changes with the company you keep, new friends and acquaintances who are more on your wavelength are flocking towards you bringing opportunities and possibilities that you had not thought of. Networking is useful and in the social arena you will shine, as long as you get your rest! Others could be feeling even more restricted lately whereas for you the barriers that have been holding you back are being removed at an accelerated pace. Some are relying on you to be of support and emotional consistency on your part will help. Career options could occur so it is important that you do not put too many limitations out there, if you are prepared to change your plans at a moment’s notice you could benefit greatly. Some plan or scheme that another has been playing is likely to backfire on them, perhaps they have become too clever for their own good? To you the game is transparent and what you must not do is set your sights too low. This is the beginning of a more open and adventurous chapter in your life, so take full advantage. Take care of business and get things done so that long term plans can manifest. Slow down this week and take your time, it is best not to force things to happen as you could make some mistakes. Pay close attention to the details and tasks in a prioritised manner. Someone close to you is probably prepared to meet you halfway, so let go of any preconceived ideas and keep an open mind. Do not get too serious, enjoy life day by day and by the weekend you will be having some well needed fun.

LIBRA

Flexibility is the key this week, you can bring about a breakthrough if you let go of attitudes you have outgrown and open up to the changes that are occurring. Avoid planning too far ahead or trying to take control of a plan – remain adaptable as to the outcome. Financially things happening now and being put in place will have a long-term effect upon your life. Family will September 23rd - either visit or you will make arrangements for this to happen.

You are emanating serenity and calmness with an air of confidence and ability and that makes for a formidable energy. The contacts you make now can help you advance with a new project or endeavour, so do not be surprised if invitations come your way and be open to what is on offer. This is time to make sure that your relationships are solid and secure so clear up any disagreements. Choices and actions that you take are important right now and whatever happens the ultimate outcome has not yet been determined. It can feel easy to get what you want but there is a reminder that having something can be a different ball game from the mere thought of it. Some things may not be in your control but with creativity and flair you will be able to lead others. Financially this is a good time to make important purchases.

Your originality is being noticed so expect to be popular and attractive to others. Sudden opportunities could come your way just make sure you do not follow the crowd but remain unique. Others can sense that there are radical changes taking place within you that could lead to something quite successful. Make sure you swim with the tide and do not feel as though you have to make decisions on the spot if you need more time. There is a great need for love, romance and affection and you will work hard to make sure that your current relationship is on an equal basis, especially if there have been dependency issues in the past. A situation that has preoccupied you, although you may feel you understand it, events this week will allow you to see it in a different light. Remain true to your hopes and dreams and your instincts will lead the way. You cannot judge things by what appears to be happening now, what you can do is be more expressive about your true thoughts, feelings and desires for the future, this is important as Mercury is going retrograde and some things can easily become misunderstood. Relationships could also undergo some unexpected changes, so do not try to plan too far ahead, remain in the moment and roll with whatever may happen.

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

Yes, we are still it seems in the grip of a winter heatwave, but it won’t last forever worst luck and so here’s a very warming dish of veggies with a lovely crumble topping. This week’s recipe sent to us from Kate Buchan, the Sous Chef at Kimbridge Restaurant, Near Romsey

Winter Vegetable Crumble Ingredients:

• 2 parsnips • 1 small leek • 1 small turnip • 1 small celeriac • 100gr runner beans • 1 vegetable stock cube • 300ml of double cream • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic • 1 teaspoon of paprika • 50gr of chopped parsley

(Serves 4 to 6)

• Salt and pepper • 150gr of plain flour • 50gr of butter • 250ml of vegetable stock

Directions Preheat the oven to 200c / gas 6 / fan 180c. 1. Slice the leeks and the celeriac and place together in a saucepan with the garlic and the paprika. Lightly cook for a few minutes. 2. Peel and cut the parsnips into cubes and also the turnip, then add to the pan. Add the stock cube and enough water to just cover the vegetables and cook until all are just tender. 3. Add the runner beans and simmer for a few minutes so that they soften slightly. Now add the

cream and let it reduce slightly. Take off the heat and place the vegetable mix into an oven proof dish and set aside while you make the topping. 4.

WEDNESDAY, October 16th 2013

Talking to a friend the other day she asked how one would express the idea that one didn't mind or have any particular preference.

For example - ¿Prefieres té o café? Would you prefer tea or coffee? Me da lo mismo - it's all the same to me. Or Lo mismo da. You may also use - Me da igual - to say the same thing.

So, if you want to say "the same" it is usually mismo or misma. Hacer dos cosas al mismo tiempo - to do two things at the same time La misma historia de siempre - the same old story Nos gustan las mismas películas - we like the same old stories Roma ya no es la misma - Rome is not the same any more.

Lo mismo is also commonly used to mean the same. Siempre dice lo mismo - He always says the same thing Lo mismo para mi - the same for me, please (don't forget that in Spanish the por favor is not deemed to be as necessary as in English) Ahora mismo - right now ¿Puede hacerlo ahora mismo? - Can you do it right now? Quiero ir ahora mismo - I want to go right now. Aquí mismo - right here Lo vi aquí mismo - I saw it right here.

And until two weeks from now - Ya está - That's it.

Ask Calvin and Sue: Hair & Beauty Vitamin D Dear Sue,

Dear Sue,

Dear Calvin,

Liz, Benalmadena

Eileen, Torremolinos

Lucy, Mijas Pueblo

Regardless of your age, soap is a no-no. It is too harsh, as are soapy cleansers. Some people believe their skin should feel tight and tingle after cleansing but that would indicate that you're actually harming and drying out your skin. Soaps are alkaline, which means they can strip the skin's essential acid mantle and also impair its waterproofing properties, potentially leaving it dry and flaky. There are cleansers on the market to cater for every skin type.

Hair growth has three stages, growing, resting and falling out. The growth stage varies with everybody. It is determined by our genetics and hormones. This is why you will see some people with extremely long hair and others will never achieve it.

What can I do to beat hungover skin? Dear Liz,

Morning-after faces can be frightening, so be smart and before you go out drink three or four glasses of water. Water can neutralise the worst effects of drinking so alternate water with alcohol throughout the night. Remove all makeup before you go to bed to help prevent the skin looking dull. It can help if you sleep with an extra pillow to help drain fluids away from your eye area, apply an eye gel at night and in the morning to combat puffiness.

Why shouldn't I use How long will my hair soap to clean my face? grow? Dear Eileen,

It is normal to lose between 50-200 hairs a day. Most of the time we don't notice this loss. When the hair is wet it darkens in colour so I assume you are noticing this normal hair fall when showering as the hairs are easier to see.

supplement queried Healthy adults do not need to take vitamin D supplements, according to researchers at the University of Auckland, after analysing the effects of vitamin D supplementation on bone mineral density in 23 studies involving more than 4,000 healthy people. They found that the supplements had no beneficial effect on bone density, a sign of osteoporosis, but experts have said many other factors could be at play and people should not stop taking them. A spokesman for the department of nutritional sciences at the University of Surrey said the study was important but very specific: "I'm not surprised they didn't find any evidence of the effects of vitamin D on bone

density because there are so many other factors involved in osteoporosis, like genes, diet and environment. But it's difficult to pin it all on vitamin D."

He said it was no good taking vitamin D supplements if people didn't also maintain a healthy, balanced diet containing calcium and take plenty of exercise, adding that most healthy people should be able to absorb enough vitamin D naturally, through sunshine and diet. Experts advise taking no more than 25 micrograms (0.025mg) a day, because taking too much vitamin D in the form of supplements can be harmful as calcium can build up and damage the kidneys.

Alzheimer's breakthrough The discovery of the first chemical to prevent the death of brain tissue in a neurodegenerative disease has been hailed as the "turning point" in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. In tests on mice, a research team at the Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, based at the University of Leicester, showed all brain cell death from prion disease could be prevented. Mice with prion disease develop severe memory and movement problems and usually die within 12 weeks. However, those given the compound showed no sign of brain tissue wasting away.

The researchers said: "What's really exciting is a compound has completely prevented neurodegeneration and that's a first. This isn't the compound you would use in people, but it means we

can do it and it's a start."

They said the compound offered a "new pathway that may well give protective drugs". The next step was for drug companies to develop a medicine for use in humans which could treat Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's and other diseases. A spokesman for the charity Alzheimer's Research UK said: "Targeting a mechanism relevant to a number of neurodegenerative diseases could yield a single drug with widereaching benefits, but this compound is still at an early stage. It will be important for these findings to be repeated and tested in models of other neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease."

Here’s a new and cheap idea to think about for the kids’ Christmas presents

The Clangers are coming back...

… and don’t even think of trying to sound like them - your children will think you’ve gone bonkers! Why? Well, a lot of us will remember the Clangers – little pink woolly aliens who didn’t speak but sort of whistled their way through life from some 40 years ago. Now they are back with a whole load of new TV shows that will come to CBeebies at a cost of £5 million. Also appearing will be the Soup Dragon, Iron Chicken and Froglets, and yes, they are still living on their planet said to be “across the vast endless stretches of outer space" from Earth. First seen in 1969 and finished in 1974 the Clanger family of Granny, Tiny, Small, Mother and Major enchanted a generation of children, and parents.

One of the original creators, Oliver Postgate has unfortunately died, but

his son Daniel has taken over and will be working with the other original creator Peter Firmin to produce the new series through their company Smallfilms. Screening is expected to take place starting 2015.

Firmin – who was also behind shows such as Bagpuss and Ivor The Engine – said: "We hope to engage and entertain children of all ages and their families, just as Oliver and I did all those years ago. The new series will include great storytelling with lots of heart. It will also be technically improved. When you watch the original Clangers you have to make allowances for the limitations of the animation techniques when it was made. It was magical for its time, but this is a new Clangers for a new age."

Male cancer awareness week

Male Cancer Awareness Week saw Michael Douglas speaking about when he was diagnosed with cancer and how he had lied about the type of cancer he had.

The 69-year-old actor said that, although he had suspected that the news wasn’t going to be good he went numb when he was actually told. He said: "I had an inkling ... particularly when I saw the look on his (the doctor's) face. It kind of all rushes over you, you get a little numb... very numb."

He described how he was due to go on a promotional tour for his film, Wall Street and told his manager that he couldn’t cancel the tour and needed to tell the public that he had cancer. However, the surgeon suggested he tell the public he had throat cancer rather than cancer of the tongue. Douglas asked him why he felt he should do that. The surgeon replied “If you really wanna know why, if we do have to have

surgery it's not gonna be pretty. You'll lose part of your jaw and your tongue and all of that stuff.” So Douglas agreed.

Samuel L Jackson, who is fronting a new campaign One For The Boys, urged men to open up about health problems in an attempt to tackle cancer. “We'll talk about our injuries, but we won't talk about our illnesses, so I think it's time we do that,” he said. In the meantime, it is rumoured that Michael Douglas may have patched things up with wife Catherine Zeta Jones from whom he split in the summer. Watch this space for more news on that!

Tiny, Small, Mother and Major Clanger

Bake Lulu shot in Off on the arm - by accident! one Due to it’s meteoric ratings rise, the BBC will be moving the Great British Bake Off from BBC Two to BBC One from next year. Experts Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry eat their way through bread, cakes and buns of all manner of shapes and sizes eliminating the hopeful bakers one by one as the series progresses with the winner usually making their way as owners of their own businesses at the end of the year bacause of their new-found fame.Tears and tantrums are shown as the weeks progress and they all seem to be terribly “British” when they are eliminated – nobody yet has thrown their cake stands at the insufferable Hollywood yet. Not that this year’s Ruby seems to have anything to worry about. Apart from being a pretty good baker, she seems to be Hollywood’s favourite too so we bet she wins next week’s final for this year!

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, during a rehearsal of a sketch parodying the film Kill Bill that showed Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French machine gunning singer Lulu – playing the part of Uma Thurman – for singing her hit song “Shout” too loudly the singer landed in hospital when she was shot for real, accidentally of course! Comedienne Jennifer Saunders was speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival when she revealed the truth about the item that appeared in a French and

Saunders episode from which Lulu says she still bears the scars. After the scene – which involved exploding blood pellets – was over Lulu realized she had a real wound in her arm the size of a £2 coin. Saunders said she was “really nice about it” though. Lulu said: "I was bleeding and had to go to hospital and have stitches. Dawn and Jennifer sent me this little silver thing that had written on the front: 'We shot Lulu'. And on the other side it said: 'Sorry'. They are insane – they're mad. We had a lot of laughs."

Opinion

Sven Olav Eid

Anything Goes. Under this title has Ms Muriel Pilkington (Sept. 25th.) – in my opinion as usual – made a fair analysis of actual Spanish politics. But her comments on the various extreme groups’ excessive lack of civic behaviour reminded me also of the general bewilderment which exists concerning the definition of the basic locum of ethical political extremism. Contrasting political right with left has for a very long time had the criterion illustrated on a line with right on the right end, and the left on the left end. The basis has been respectively individually founded liberalism contrasted to collectively founded socialism. Apart from individual anomalies, extremism normally is based on collectivistic class-, race-, religion- or nationality

ideology i.e. politically on the left end. The concept extremeright, founded on German Rechtsextremismus has the kind of same obscure etymological foundation as metaphysics. They bring to mind what Voltaire labelled “constructions chimériques” and Ayn Rand as “ stolen concepts “ The respective prefixes rechts and meta, with malapropos, hopeless referents, render the words and concepts scandalously devoid of real intellectual meaning and validity. As pseudo-concepts they also have in common to have been used in eternal intellectual desert drifting discussions through history, consciously or unconsciously avoiding the existential reality. As a student in the 1940s, I read that Clara Zetkin, close to Vladimir Lenin, being herself an extremist, was the first to denote her

enemies on the streets as Rechtsextremisten. Inquiries for years at various German universities and academies, respecting the etymological origin brought nil, only repetitions of well-known practice. The German variant of Wikipedia seems to give you the origin of any Hebrew, Greek or Latin word, but not of Rechtsextremismus. Why? Because the actual academics in public institutions, also in Germany are mainly leftists. Communists, fascists and nationalsocialists ( Nazis) are ideologycally monozygotic triplets. Vladimir Lenin, Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler were all socialist variants.

Opinion & Comment N 27

WEDNESDAY, October 16th 2013

But Martin Delfin's 'Memo from Madrid' (Edn 246) carried a real 'howler'. He wrote: (re: Gibraltar) that Spain "is taking a gentile attitude..." I know it was a 'typo', but the attitude could hardly be Jewish in Catholic Spain, could it?

Mijas Costa

thought perhaps she might appreciate Winston Churchill's opinion on the same subject – even though it was said/written(?) rather long before her time: ".......Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery...." I rather like to think of him having actually said this – I

can just imagine his growly voice chewing over the words.

Editor says: Another one of his many brilliant quotes is: “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen,” and, God knows, Muriel always stands up and tells it how she sees it!

Rena Smith

What a happy little bunny your Kym Wickham was last week in her column! Her comments about how she loves the area she lives in, the weather at this time of the year and strolling along the prom really brought a smile to my face. I haven’t been here that long and came here after my husband died suddenly,

Riviera

so to read about the good things in life gave me such a lift. It’s nice to hear of someone who is clearly enjoying her life and loves her job. Well done her! Editor says: Glad to hear I cheered someone up. Life is rarely as bad as it sometimes seems so enjoy it while we can.

Comment By Ken Campbell

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse! E

There will be a Penumbral eclipse of the Moon this Friday night 18th October.

clipses of either the Sun or the Moon that are visible from Spain are a bit thin on the ground for a while; in fact the next total eclipse of the Moon visible from Spain won’t be until 2029! In the meantime I’m doing my best to try to turn a mediocre event into a crowd pleaser.

A

n eclipse of the Sun occurs when the Moon passes directly between the Sun and the Earth. The Moon blocks out the Sun for a few minutes as its shadow races across the face of the Earth. The Moon and the Sun appear as practically the same size as each other during an eclipse, but this is purely coincidence. The Sun is 400 times bigger than the Moon but it just happens to be 400 times further away.

T

he disc of the Moon only just manages to cover the face of the Sun and so to witness an eclipse of the Sun you have to be standing in exactly the right place on the Earth. Just a few miles off the centre line and you will see only a partial eclipse. The further away from the centre line that you are the less and less of the Sun’s face will be covered by the Moon.

T

here will be a total eclipse of the Sun on November 3rd but the line of totality crosses central Africa, so from Southern Spain you will see only a partial eclipse, but more about this eclipse in a couple of weeks.

A

n eclipse of the Moon occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon and the Earth’s shadow falls across the Moon. The shadow consists of two parts; the darker inner circle where the whole of the Sun is blotted out is called the Umbra. Around the Umbra is a circle of lighter shadow where only part of the Sun is obscured, this is called the Penumbra. The Earth is about 1/3rd bigger than the Moon and so we produce a bigger shadow. Our shadow is so big that during a total eclipse of the Moon the whole of the Moon is covered by the Umbra not just a small area. And anyone on the Earth who can see the Moon at the time will be able to see the eclipse of the Moon.

I

f you were standing on the Moon at the time of a lunar eclipse you would see the Earth appearing much larger than the Sun as it covers the Sun’s disc.

O

An eclipse of the Moon also lasts longer than an eclipse of the Sun anything up to almost two hours.

n Friday, if you were standing on the Moon, you would see a partial eclipse of the Sun as the Earth blocks out about 2/3rds of the Sun’s face and the Moon passes through the Penumbra part of our shadow. This is a Penumbral lunar eclipse.

B

ecause only part of the Sun will be obscured then only a faint shadow from the Earth will be seen crossing the Moon. It’s very difficult to predict exactly what you may see as it depends a lot on the Earth’s atmosphere at the time. When the Sun’s light passes through our atmosphere it is scattered and produces a red light, much the same as at sunrise and sunset. This red light then filters through to shine on the Moon.

T

he eclipse will begin at 23.50 on Friday evening when you may see the first glimpses of the Earth’s shadow begin to creep across the face of the Moon coming from the right hand side of the Moon. Maximum eclipse will be at 01.50 on Saturday morning when all but a small slither at the top of the Moon will be in shadow. The eclipse will end at 04.50.

A

t best, you may see a slight dimming of the Moon and perhaps the red glow caused by our atmosphere. It won’t have the same dramatic effect that a total eclipse of the Moon can have but until 2029 this is about the best that Southern Spain is going to get!

Grosjean impresses Marquez and Lorenzo but Vettel wins again have a hell of a battle Sebastian Vettel won the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday but will have to wait to secure a fourth straight Formula One title, though Ferrari's Fernando Alonso admitted this year's championship is over. However, he added that he was happy to have broken the all-time Formula 1 points record.

Both Red Bulls made poor starts allowing Grosjean to storm through from fourth on the grid, the Frenchman leading pole man Webber into the first corner with Vettel slotting into third. Lewis Hamilton after getting off the grid well was then a victim of some bad luck when his right rear tyre was cut by Vettel’s front wing. Mercedes' day went from bad to worse with Hamilton retiring early as a result of the damage sustained in that first corner coming together, and Nico Rosberg's solid run in fourth place being undone by an unsafe pit release on his first stop that saw him handed a drive-thru penalty, dropping him out of the top ten. Grosjean stayed ahead through the first round of pit stops but began losing time on the harder tyre, eventually having to concede the lead to Webber.

Webber was coping with the Lotus pressure having initially worked hard to save his tyres, and remained well-placed after the first round of pit-stops. He was advised that he would be switching to a three-stop strategy shortly before being called in for a second time – Red Bull opting to switch him to a three stop strategy as the Australian had taken too much out of his tyres in the first stint. This left Webber feeling once again why the change in strategy!!!

Vettel, meanwhile, had been biding his time in third for much of the race and overtook Grosjean for second following the second round of stops, moving into the lead when Webber came in for his

but Pedrosa steals win

final stop. With Grosjean managing his tyres well, Webber needed a return to the softer tyre for his run to the flag in order to overcome the Frenchman, but with traffic getting in the way Webber took too long getting past the Lotus and Vettel was already out of reach by the time Webber made it to P2.

A year after blasting Romain Grosjean as a "first-lap nutcase", Mark Webber was full of praise for the Frenchman for almost denying him his second place.

Vettel, who has nine victories this season, has now won the last five F1 races. The last driver to win five in a row was Michael Schumacher in 2004. Vettel has also won four of the last five races at Suzuka. “We had a great car and were fast again this year,” Vettel said. “Being able to finish on the podium and to win four times here is incredible. The fans here are incredible, they really respect us.” By Mike Kerrigan

at the end of the Coin road Mijas Costa

Dani Pedrosa won Sunday's Malaysian MotoGP, but the action centred around a thrilling duel for second between title rivals Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo. The battle had added impetus given the penalty point handed to Marquez, for light contact with teammate Pedrosa – which broke a traction control sensor, causing Pedrosa to fall – at the previous Aragon round. But in the Sepang battle it was Lorenzo who made contact with Marquez bumping the side of the 20 -year-old after launching an inside re-pass at Turn 11, during a relentless back-and-forth exchange from laps 5 through 9. “It was a great battle,” said Lorenzo. “I tried my best. I could only try to force him to make some mistakes, so I tried at every occasion. Every space. I would

like to fight with some better braking, because we struggle so much and it is impossible to pass these guys [Hondas] on braking. We can only pass them on the change of direction or if they make a mistake. “Anyway it was fun, until the last overtake from Marc. Until then the fight was really clean, with no touching. In that (last overtake) there was no touching, but he didn't leave me as much space, so I had to close the throttle.” The words 'no touching' came as a surprise and saw Lorenzo asked specifically

if he had made any contact with Marquez: “I don't know. We passed I think three, four, five times and I don't think we touched. But if we did it was just a little bit. I didn't feel a big touch.” Marquez smiled as he listened to those comments, then gave his opinion: “In one overtake I felt some contact (from Lorenzo). But it was ok. Like this is the racing, no? He overtook me on the inside. I didn't expect it. We had some contact, but you know in that moment it was so exciting.” And it certainly was..

2013 Summer Championships Rugby team hit the ground running! at Benavista The Mens final featured Garry Aldridge and Denis “Aussie” King and went right to the limit, with both on 20 all, however Aussie came through and was presented with the trophy by Glenn Tullett of Infinity International Ltd. The Ladies Final contested Wendy Pemberton and Jeannie Cooper, with Wendy getting off to a flying start and although Jeannie tried to come back, Wendy kept her cool and won 21-15. The Pairs Final consisted of Mike and Judy Old up against last year’s winners, Sandy Guthrie and Denis “Aussie” King who got off to a slow start but just managed to clinch a win of 21-17. The Triples was Malcolm Greenwood, Tony Farmer and Wendy Pemberton up against John Warn, Chic

Young and Mike Clitheroe. It was a very close game all the way through and the end result was a one-shot win to Benavista Team. The winners of the fours went to Mike & Mary Dethridge, Lynne Heseltine and Alan Plimmer of Superbowl. The runners up were Ted Holmes, Jeannie Cooper, Denis “Aussie” King and Sandy Guthrie from Benavista Bowls,. Our thanks go to Richard Whelton and Diane Needham for their organisation and time spent making sure the competition ran smoothly. The girls in the Green Bar were fantastic as usual in making sure everyone was catered for. Well done, a really good competition and thanks to everyone who took part! Report by Chris Cooper

Bahia stadium hosted a truly ground-roots match on Saturday as the newly named senior team, MRC Warriors, took on Estrecha, a visiting side with a pedigree for all out rugby. The supporters, growing in numbers weekly, were treated to a match of both technical and physical rugby as the Warriors committed fully to a hard-fought match win. It didn’t take long for the home team to settle, and they scored fairly early in the first half. After a number of changes to prove new players, the second half saw some brilliant team play and commitment from both teams who were

Wayne’s Weekly Poker Tips Omaha

This week we have a question about Omaha which is my preferred game in poker, it is the same as Holdem except each player is dealt 4 hole cards instead of 2 and you must use 3 from the board and 2 from your hole cards to complete your 5 card hand.

Tom emailed to ask about playing AA/KK in Omaha as he seems to lose with these hands. Unlike Holdem in Omaha AA/KK is not a great starting hand as is any pair because 2 pair and trips are very common, straights and flushes win regularly so you need to hit a full house to be confident. The best starting hand is AA/KK suited because we have 2 pair and 2 nut flush draws. With this hand you would raise but because of the nature of the game it is normally played pot limit

so multi way pots are often seen. With your 4 hole cards you only want to enter a pot when you can make 2 or 3 starting hands – here is an example; Ah/Qh/Ks/10s . This is a very good hand to see a flop with as we have the Broadway draw AKQJ10, the nut heart flush draw and the 2nd best spade draw. When the the flop comes we need to see some draws to bet out if the board is dry slow down.

Omaha is not a good game for bluffs however. Let’s say you’re on the button and there is a flush draw on the flop and you want to represent this, we need to bet the flop and should the draw hit the turn we can fire again to rep the flush.

What we have to remember in Omaha every

street brings a new draw, we may have a set on the flop and yes we have to bet it to defend it. We must remember that a pair and a set at Omaha is weak so do not start putting too many chips in the pot if there are draws such as straights and flushes. If you bet the flop with a set and you get called with a draw on the board by all means be aggressive but if you think they have you beat fold!

If you have any questions regarding poker or would like to add anything please email wayne@bolsa-fiesta.com

evenly matched in speed and ability. The home team ran out winners after some great defensive play, followed by textbook counter attacking to win the game 19-12. Warriors’ coach Allan Davies was full of praise for his side who delivered a great team spirited performance. Next programmed game, first league match against Almeria at home 20th Oct, KO 13.30. Report by Allan Davies

Robbie Savage was rushed to hospital as his attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro almost went tragically wrong.

The Wales star-turnedfootball-pundit was trying to climb the highest mountain in Africa to raise money for charity, but made it just 12,000ft up the 19,341ft peak in Tanzania. Rescue workers scrambled to the scene after the former Leicester City star collapsed with "critically-low" oxygen levels in his bloodstream and fluid on his lungs after developing serious altitude sickness. It took eight hours to get him off the mountain, but once he had returned to lower elevation the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant made a full recovery.

"I thought my head was going to explode, I felt dizzy and couldn't breathe," said Savage. "There were no problems until we got to 3,000m

(9,800ft), when I was sick and got a crunching headache.

"I didn't want to give up, so I pushed on to the next camp at 3,600m – but I crashed out with a headache and sickness. "I tried to push on to the next camp at 4,300m, but I got worse. I was told if I had pushed on, I could have been seriously ill and died."

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world – i.e. the highest relative to the land around it – and is a favourite choice for charity climbs, with relatively gentle slopes for novice mountaineers. Yet despite the fact that it can be walked (as opposed to climbed), even seasoned mountaineers consider it a physically very tough challenge, which claims several lives each year.

Lawn Bowls European Team Championships 2013 A magnificent haul of one gold and  two bronze medals, were just rewards for Team Spain in the recent European team bowls championships.  Lynn Greenland and Jan Dando led the way with a gold medal in the ladies pairs category, as England and Jersey took silver and bronze respectively.  England took gold, Scotland silver, whilst the Spanish mixed fours team of Pete Bonsor, Graham Cathcart, plus Lynn and Jan earned a bronze, courtesy of a second set victory over Jersey on the final day’s play.  In the mens pairs, it was Scotland, Wales then Ireland who entered the podium, with Pete and Graham finishing a creditable 7th. These results ensured that the overall team table saw Spain finish 3rd, behind champions England and Scotland, deservedly earning themselves another bronze medal.  During the championships, it was announced that John Muldoon, director of lawn bowls in Spain, had been elected to the Junior Vice President post of European Bowls Union.  This means that in four years time, John will be President, which will

possibly see a return of the championships to Spain. He was delighted with the outcome of the 2013 European team championships, in which Team Spain's results were better than one could have hoped for. At the start of the tournament, it was stated that these were to be known as the friendly games, and although the competition was fierce, the matches were conducted in a very fair and amiable manner. Whilst some of the better known teams from UK, Channel Islands, and of course Spain, were competing hard for honours, many lesser known nations in the bowling world were on view.  I spoke to Mirko Limmer from Beerwalde, East Germany, who told me that his country has only 20 members.  Although this is the 9th European championships, it was only the 3rd time for Germany, who are based at

the country's sole club, Su Lobichau.   Spare a thought for the tournament’s basement club Turkey – their members have to travel over 6 hours to reach the nearest green, allegedly practising on half a football pitch, and learnt to bowl using the internet.  Having said that, their ladies certainly got my vote for being the smartest, and fittest team in the competition!  Then there's the Isle of Man, who like Germany, only have one green, and are void of local competition, plus Switzerland who use a curling rink, which is drained to play bowls in the summer.  So, the next time we have a moan about the occasional run (or 2!) in a green, let's count our lucky stars that we are considerably better off than some of our European cousins.  Report by John David Carr BIS

British racing driver Sean Edwards killed

British racing driver Sean Edwards has died in a crash at the Queensland Raceway in Australia. The 26-year-old, born in London, was a passenger in a Porsche which hit the barriers during a private test session. Edwards is currently leading the Porsche Supercup championship. The Briton is the son of former F1 driver Guy Edwards, who pulled Niki Lauda out of his burning Ferrari after a crash at the Nurburgring in 1976.

Rory McIlroy takes Horizon Sports Management to court Golfer Rory McIlroy has begun a legal action in the Republic of Ireland against his former agent, Dublinbased Horizon Sports Management. The details of the case were not outlined at Dublin High Court on Monday, but it is understood to involve a multi-million euro dispute over fees. It is believed the golfer views the fees charged by Horizon – said to be 7.5m euros (£6.4m) over an 18 month period – as excessive. The company is set to counter claim. Horizon is reported to believe it has achieved exceptional results for the golfer, who was not in court.
