Recent immigrants 'make net contribution'

Immigrants to the UK since 2000 have made a "substantial" contribution to public finances, according to a study by University College London's Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration In its report, the UCL said immigrants who arrived after 1999 were 45% less likely to receive state benefits or tax credits than UK natives in the period 2000-2011, and they were also 3% less likely to live in social housing. The report's authors, Prof Christian Dustmann and Dr Tommaso Frattini, said that rather than being a "drain" on the economy their contribution had been "remarkably strong".

Immigrants from the European Economic Area (EEA – the EU plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) had made a particularly positive contribution in the decade up to 2011, contributing 34% more in taxes than they received in benefits. Immigrants from outside the EEA contributed 2% more in taxes than they received in the same period, the report showed.

Over the same period, British people paid 11% less in tax than they received.

Despite the positive figures in the decade since the millennium, the study found that between 1995 and 2011, immigrants from non-EEA countries claimed more in benefits than they paid in taxes, mainly because they tended to have more children than native Britons.

Another busy weekend last weekend. On Friday we went along to The Olive Tree to celebrate their first birthday with them. Owners Tina and David, plus daughter Louise, otherwise known as “Wobbly”, behind the bar have worked their little socks off to make the place successful and with their first year now having come to an end, all their hard work seems to have paid off. The place is pleasant to go to, you always get a warm welcome, and there’s entertainment on pretty much every week. On Saturday we went to our first Christmas fair of the season, again at The Olive Tree. We won a key ring on the tombola, bought a few second hand CDs for in the car, a stretchy lead for Jackson so that we can take him to more places with us and he can still have a bit of a wander whilst still being safe, and I bought a number of lovely, sparkly dresses for over the season for dinners and

Sir Andrew Green of the pressure group Migration Watch said the report had "been spun".

"We've had roughly four million immigrants under the previous government – two-thirds of those were from outside the European Union," he said in a radio interview. He said the report found that, "since 1995, they have made a negative contribution overall". He accepted that "if you take the whole of the EU", the benefit was "clearly positive". But Sir Andrew said this would be expected "because you are including German engineers, French fashion designers and – as

it's the European Economic Area – even Swiss bankers". "The real issue for the future is the very large numbers of low-paid immigrants from eastern Europe," he said. He added: "The professor's report does not take into account – no doubt for good reason – future health costs as migrants get older nor the pension bill, which is huge."

A government spokesman said: "We welcome those that want to come here to contribute to the economy, but it's absolutely right that we have strict rules in place to protect the integrity of the British benefits system to ensure it's not abused."

The 2011 census showed that 13% of the population of England and Wales was born outside the UK.

Col Jacob Schick patented the first electric razor

Royal couple's mansion impounded Judge José Castro has impounded half the luxury mansion in the upmarket Pedralbes neighbourhood of Barcelona owned by Princess Cristina and her husband Iñaki Urdangarin, to help the €6.1million civil-liability bond imposed on the king’s son-in-law and his former business partner Diego Torres.

Three other smaller homes in Palma de Mallorca and Terrassa owned by the couple, as well as storage rooms and parking places, were also frozen – a total of 16 properties. The 1,000square-metre mansion now lies empty and is on the market for €10 million.

The judge's order will not impede any future deeds transfers relating to the house, but potential buyers will be warned about the legal situation of the property.

The judge is looking into allegations that Urdangarin siphoned off millions of euros of public funds to private companies through his non-profit Nóos Institute between 2004 and 2006, when Urdangarin stepped down as head of the institute. Both he and his former partner have denied any wrongdoing. Urdangarin was suspended from official royal engagements in December last year, while

the princess recently moved to Switzerland in the hope of shielding the couple's children from unwanted media attention. In another development on Monday, Judge Castro summoned the mayor of Valencia, Rita Barberá, and former Valencia regional premier, Francisco Camps, to

appear before him on November 15th and 16th as witnesses to answer questions about contracts

What is required for a foreigner to get married in Spain?

In this article we will explain which documents and procedures are required in order that a foreigner and a Spaniard or two foreigners can celebrate a marriage in Spain.

1: Wedding Ceremonies between a foreigner and a Spaniard need to be organised with the Civil Registry that corresponds to the area where one of the parties habitually resides. The following documents are required:

l Complete Birth Certificates: A translated and legalised copy obtained from the Civil Registry in the place of birth of the foreign party/ies.

l Registry in the Town Hall Certificates: - Called “Certificado de Empadronamiento”, which can be obtained in the Town Hall/s of the area/s where you have been living for the last two years.

l Marital Status Certificate: - For the Spanish party a “Fe de Vida y Estado” which is a document stating that the person is alive and specifying marital status. It is issued by the Civil Registry in the area where this person is registered as living. For the foreign party/ies, it

would be a certificate issued by the consulate of the country of birth. It is a sworn declaration stating the legal capacity of this party to contract matrimony and includes a form which has to be filled in at the Civil Registry.

l Photocopies of Identity Documents, or passports

l Marriage Certificate/s for previous annulled marriages, or divorces, together with the final divorce or annulment Certificate/s

l Death Certificate/s for widows or widowers together with Marriage Certificate of previous husbands/wives.

l Certificate of Registration in the Consulate: Issued by the Consulate of the foreign party’s country of origin.

l Certificates stating the necessity of publishing public Bans: issued by the Consulate of the foreign party’s country of origin. l Petition: Once all these

documents have been collected you should take them to the Civil Registry of the area where you wish to marry, where you will be asked to complete a petition for the marriage. Once this is done they will initiate the procedure for your file and will later contact you to go and collect the document authorising the marriage.

2: To enable to two foreigners to celebrate a marriage in Spain abiding by the Spanish Law both parties would need to present the following documents:

l Complete Birth Certificates: - These must be dated and are only valid for 6 months.

l Marital Status Certificates: These must be dated and are only valid for 6 months.

l Photocopy of either Resident Certificates or passports. l Registry in the Town Hall Certificates: (Empadronamiento)

in the Town Hall/s, where the parties have been residing for the previous two years, at least one of the interested parties must reside in Spain. In the case where a party has not resided in Spain for at least two years proof of their previous residence must be provided by acquiring a certificate from the consulate of the country of origin, stating the domicile of the interested party for the previous two years

l Death Certificate/s for widows or widowers, together with Marriage Certificate of previous husbands/wives.

l Final Decree/s for divorce and full Marriage Certificate/s of previous marriage/s

l Petition: Once all these documents have been collected you should take them to the Civil Registry of the area where you wish to marry, where you will be asked to complete a petition for the marriage. Once this is done they will initiate the procedure for your file and

Man arrested for stabbing British tourists

A Portuguese DJ in the party resort of Magaluf on the island of Majorca has been arrested for stabbing two British men in a street brawl involving some 20 people outside a nightclub in the early hours of last Friday. Early reports said up to six people had been stabbed but Nelson Delgado is only being

investigated for two stabbings, according to police on the island. They said he may have attacked his victims thinking they belonged to a gang whose members wearing similar Halloween fancy dress had attacked his brother hours earlier. Nightclub manager Daniel Billingham, 34, was still in hospital on

Monday after being treated for two stab wounds in the back. Doctors described his condition as "stable." His friend, Sam Byrne, 30, was released from hospital after being treated for stab wounds to his stomach and arms. It was revealed on Monday that Delgado had served an indeterminate

sentence for aggravated burglary and assault in Aylesbury Young Offenders Institute, where he got prison officer Kelly-Anne McDade pregnant.

McDade, 31, had to resign after she was caught on CCTV opening Delgado's cell door when all cells should have been locked for the night.

Policemen suspended for man's death Eight policemen under investigation for the violent arrest of a Barcelona man who later died have been temporarily suspended from duty, Catalonia interior chief Ramon Espadeler said Monday. Juan Andrés Benítez, a 50-year-old businessman from the city’s gay-friendly “Gayxample” district, died after being violently subdued by members of

the Mossos d’Esquadra regional police on October 5th.

The judicial order states that the officers are under investigation on possible charges of homicide, torture, obstructing justice and coercion. It also shelves the case against El Yazid A., a Moroccan who had fought with Benítez that night, which resulted with the Mossos being called in. According to

witnesses, the fight was not serious and Benítez emerged with barely a scratch and the situation had calmed down by the time the Mossos arrived. However, Benitez started to argue with a female officer who was trying to calm him down, which resulted in the Mossos intervening to subdue him.

Two local residents recorded the incident and

the images led to the National Police taking charge of the investigation.

Their report states that one of the officers punched Benítez at least five times on the left side of his head. The autopsy reported that Benítez died as a consequence of multiple blows to the head, but did not determine their origin.

E-cigarettes in tobacco stores

The commissioner for the marketing of tobacco has decided that electronic cigarettes – e-cigarettes – should be listed under “smoking articles,” meaning that they can be sold without the government's express authorization. This means they will soon be available for purchase in tobacco stores across the country. The decision follows the approval of a European Commission directive last month that decided e-cigarettes should not be marketed as a medication. The decision on whether or not e-cigarettes, which produce a vapour rather than smoke, should be exempt from smoking bans was left up to the discretion of member nations. Francisco Camarelles, spokesman for the National Committee for the prevention of Tobacco, called the decision "a joke", adding that "the Health ministry needs to take matters into its own hands”.

World News Most Nazi-looted art 'still missing'

British art expert Anne Webber of the Commission for Looted Art in Europe has said the hoard of 1,500 artworks found in Munich is just "the tip of the iceberg" and most works acquired by the Nazis are still untraced.

The Munich trove is believed to include works by Matisse, Picasso and Chagall and has an estimated total value of €1 billion.

During World War Two, the Nazis often used devalued currency to acquire important artworks cheaply in occupied countries in Western Europe, while in Eastern

Europe they carried out large-scale looting. The works are thought to be among the many which the Nazis either seized from Jews or removed from galleries as "degenerate" modern art. The artworks were found by chance when the tax authorities investigated Cornelius Gurlitt, the reclusive son of an art dealer in Munich. He was

suspected of tax evasion, and investigators obtained a search warrant for his apartment in Munich in early 2011, where they found the artworks which had vanished from sight during the Nazi era.

The younger Mr Gurlitt had kept the works in darkened rooms, surrounded by clutter, and sold the occasional painting

when he needed money. To explain the two-year delay in revealing the artworks, an official said they had been kept in a secure wing of Bavarian customs while experts try to find out who they belonged to, adding that the German authorities were generally slow to trace the origins of artworks, despite the efforts of hundreds of families to trace their valuable property.

Secret Argentine junta files found Some 1,500 secret files, dating back to the years of military rule in Argentina, have been discovered in Buenos Aires in an abandoned wing of the Air Force headquarters.

Defence Minister Agustin Rossi said the files contain the

transcripts of all meetings held by the military junta, which ruled the country from 1976 to 1983. "For the first time we have access to documents covering the whole period of military rule," said Mr Rossi. The documents also name famous artists and intellectuals who were

blacklisted. Folk singer Mercedes Sosa, writer Julio Cortazar and tango musician Osvaldo Pugliese were among many people banned or subjected to censorship for opposing the government. The find was announced at a media

conference in Buenos Aires. There was no mention of files concerning the Falklands War, which ultimately precipitated the end of military rule. The junta came to power in a military coup on March 24th, 1976, deposing President Isabel Peron.

Colombian navy in huge cocaine haul

The Colombian navy has seized 1,450 kg of cocaine from a speedboat in the Caribbean, following a tip off by uS anti-drugs agents. Colombian officials said the boat, which had left the northern town of Manaure and was heading towards the Dominican republic, was intercepted in international waters. Four Venezuelans and a Colombian were detained and are being held in custody in Tampa, Florida. Speedboats are used by gangs trying to avoid surveillance as they transport illegal drugs produced in South America to Central America, Mexico and the united States. In two joint operations last month, agents from the uS, Colombia, Panama and the Dominican republican seized 2,500 kg of cocaine in the region. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has made the fight against the drug gangs one of his government's priorities. EurozoNE

Factory orders up for fourth month

Eurozone factory orders rose for a fourth consecutive month in october, leaving factories unable to keep up with demand, according to a survey. Manufacturers in the 17-country eurozone saw their backlogs rise higher as stocks of finished goods continued to fall. The Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) stood at 51.3 in october, up from 51.1 in September. Any reading of above 50 suggests expansion. Markit said that only France and Greece failed to enjoy improved conditions. The organisation's chief economist, Chris Williamson, however, said that the pace of growth was "modest overall". "While the recovery goes on, it is by all accounts frustratingly slow. In particular, the modest gains in output and new orders remain insufficient to encourage firms to take on more staff," he added.

US Senate backs gay rights bill

A bill banning workplace discrimination against gay and transgender people has passed a critical test of support in the US Senate, 17 years after a similar bill failed by a single vote.

But on Monday, the Employment NonDiscrimination Act, or Enda, received bipartisan support and reached the 60-vote threshold necessary to overcome a procedural roadblock set up by Republican opponents. The White House strongly supports the measure, but its future in the Republican-led House of Representatives remains unclear. President Barack Obama has publicly voiced his support for the

measure, three years after Congress lifted the ban on gays serving openly in the US military. "Americans ought to be judged by one thing only in their workplaces: their ability to get their jobs done,'' Mr Obama told the Huffington Post.

"Does it make a difference if the firefighter who rescues you is gay, or the accountant who does your taxes or the mechanic who fixes your car?"

Doctors aided torture at military prisons Doctors and nurses working under US military orders have been complicit in the abuse of terrorism suspects, a new report by the Institute of Medicine and the George Soros-funded Open Society Foundations has claimed.

Medical professionals helped design, enable and participated in "torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment" of detainees, according to the study, which was compiled by an independent panel of military, health, ethics and legal experts. The report said the collusion began at US prisons in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and at CIA secret detention sites after the September 11th 2001 attacks in the US. The report said that while some practices such as waterboarding have now been banned, medical professionals are still being required to force-feed

detainees, including those at Guantanamo Bay. The report called on the US Senate Intelligence Committee to fully investigate medical practices at the detention sites. Both the CIA and the Pentagon have rejected the report's findings.

CIA public affairs chief Dean Boyd said the report "contains serious inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions", adding that the CIA does not have any detainees in its custody and President Obama terminated the Rendition, Detention and

Interrogation Program by executive order in 2009. Pentagon spokesman Todd Breasseale said that none of the critics of prisoner care had access to the detainees, their medical records, or the procedures at Guantanamo.

He described the doctors and nurses working at Guantanamo as "consummate professionals" who routinely provided "not only better medical care than any of these detainees have ever known, but care on a par with the very best of the global medical profession".

Suspects for journalist deaths arrested Security forces have arrested and questioned a number of suspects over the deaths of two French journalists in northern Mali, officials said on Monday. Radio France Internationale's Ghislaine Dupont, 57, and Claude Verlon, 58, were kidnapped and killed on Saturday after interviewing a local leader in Kidal, the desert town

which is at the centre of a political dispute between ethnic Tuareg nomads and the rest of the population of Mali, who are black Africans. France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has described the deaths as "cold and calculated assassinations". In a radio interview, he declined to confirm previous reports that French forces had arrested five suspects and

transferred them to the city of Gao, but he said efforts were continuing to "identify a certain number of people in camps".

Meanwhile, French news agency AFP quoted a police source in Mali as saying a dozen suspects had been arrested over the deaths of the journalists. The bodies of the two journalists were repatriated on Monday.

North Korea reveals warship sinking North Korea revealed on Monday that one of its warships sank last month, killing a number of sailors, in a rare admission of military failure.

State media reported a visit by leader Kim Jongun to a naval cemetery for the crew of "submarine

chaser No 233". Photographs showed Mr Kim surrounded by more than a dozen gravestones inscribed with the date October 13th.

The report said the vessel had been performing combat duties but gave no more

information about what happened. North Korea has a large military but much of its equipment is believed to be old and out of date. Reports in South Korean media, citing unidentified sources, suggested age could have been a factor in the sinking.

New bid to bring back Need to diagnose fox hunting in Britain cancer earlier

You don’t see that traditional British hunting scene – the huntsman in his red jacket with a pack of foxhounds – on biscuit tins and Christmas cards so often these days, but the tradition of riding to hounds appears to be as popular as ever in Britain and there are efforts to make it fully legal again. At the moment foxes can only be controlled using a pair of dogs, but pest controllers say a pack of dogs is much more effective and Conservative MP for South East Cornwall Sheryll Murray

would like to see an amendment to existing law to allow pack hunting to return. Farmers say attacks on farm stock by foxes are increasing and action is needed, but the League Against Cruel Sports, which campaigned successfully for a ban through the introduction of the 2004 Hunting Act, is opposed to any change. At the moment fox hunts continue to meet and many have adopted drag hunting, where a scent is laid down for the hounds to follow.

In the run-up to the last election the Conservatives promised a free vote in Parliament on the controversial subject of fox hunting, but supporters of hunting fear that a vote would be lost if the issue was put forward for consideration now. An amendment allowing gun packs to use a full pack of hounds for pest control is seen by hunt supporters as a first step toward reversing the blanket ban on pack hunting without a vote in the House of Commons.

Cameron to act on high water bills The Government is looking hard at water bills in Britain. Some families in the West Country are facing annual demands of over £1,000, average bills being much more than Londoners’ pay. A spokesman for David Cameron has said the Prime Minister wants to see household bills come down and the perceived

avarice of utility companies is certainly not a vote winner for the Conservatives who have traditionally championed denationalisation. A new Water Bill is expected to come before Parliament and it is likely to introduce competition to the sector with customers being able to choose their suppliers.

Hundreds of poorer women are dying needlessly of breast cancer, but it is not because they cannot afford better treatment than the National Health Service can provide, it is simply because they do not come forward quickly enough for treatment. When they are eventually diagnosed it can be too late. The Department of Health recognises the problem and

says more people are surviving cancer then ever before. It has committed resources to a publicity campaign to make women aware that early treatment can be much more successful. There is a currently an extensive ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ campaign in Britain urging patients to visit their doctors for advice if they spot blood in their urine.

BBC veteran denies sex allegations BBC broadcaster Paul Gambaccini, 64, will not be presenting on BBC Radio in the coming weeks following his arrest by the Metropolitan Police as part of its investigation into historic sexual offences.

Mr Gambaccini has denied all allegations and has decided that he would rather not be on air in view of current media attention. A spokesman said Mr Gambaccini answered police questions and was co-operative.

Rain and firemen stop fireworks

Bad weather and the fear of strike action by the Fire Brigade Union conspired to discourage many bonfire night organisers from holding firework displays over the weekend as tends to happen when November 5th (Guy Fawkes Night) falls in the week. The union is in dispute with the Government over pensions, in particular the changing of the pension age from 55 to 60. It fears firemen could be made redundant if they fail fitness tests and cannot find other jobs within the fire service.

Local News Royal couple spend 'bridge' in Andalusia

Crown Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia spent the All Saints Day long weekend in Andalusia, specifically in Granada, where they visited the Alhambra and walked around the city with their two daughters, Leonor and Sofia. The girls were a little uncomfortable at first with the attention they attracted but ended up happily having their photos taken with all the

people who asked for them. The family then went on to Almeria where, the Prince and Princess visited the set of Ridley Scott's "Exodus", which is being filmed in the town of Aguamarga. The royals chatted with the actors and the production staff and joined them for lunch at the canteen. The couple were also celebrating the 10th anniversary of their engagement.

exhausted “the maximum limit of her jurisdiction,” and should therefore consider sending the case to a higher court.

The judge, however, is insisting that Álvarez should be investigated for possible crimes of abuse of office and misappropriation of public funds. The former minister has been summoned to appear on November 7th, “in case she wishes to expand upon any aspect of her testimony,” according to Alaya’s ruling. The judge added that she believes Álvarez was “one of the instigators, in connivance with others, of the illegal procedure of the

concession of subsidies” to struggling companies in the region.

Álvarez, the vice president of the European Investment Bank, served as economy minister for Andalusia from 1994 to 2004, during which time the severance fund was set up. It is alleged that between 2001 and 2010 an estimated €140 million was misappropriated.

Around 20 former and current regional government officials, as well as high-ranking members of the main labour unions, have been caught up in the investigation. The judge's reasons for targeting

the government officials are based on testimony from 14 administration employees, who stated that the ERE fund was deliberately designed to hand out the money in a discretionary manner that bypassed control systems.

In some cases, family members of government officials received money from the fund, some of them never having been employed by the companies that received the subsidies. The Socialists have governed in Andalusia for three decades and currently share power in a coalition with the United Left.

Warning about jeopardising UK/Spain relations

The online Gibraltar newspaper Panorama said on Monday that informed sources in London told it that high ranking UK government officials have warned their counterparts in Madrid of the risk of jeopardising relations between both countries further if Spain continues to provoke incidents like the one last week when there was an armed stand-off in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters between the Royal Navy and a Guardia Civil vessel. The paper said the UK government had fallen short of summoning Spanish ambassador Federico Trillo to the Foreign Office, which could seriously delay the possibility of ad-hoc talks getting off the ground. In a written statement, Europe Minister David Lidington brought

Parliament up to date on the UK government’s response to last week’s incident: "The UK’s Defence Attaché in Madrid raised our concerns about the incident with the Spanish Navy on October 31st. We have also raised this at a high level with the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, making clear that the actions of the Guardia Civil were unacceptable and dangerous, with the potential to cause serious injury or damage.”

The Foreign Office also sent a written statement to the Spanish government. Panorama said that that a well-placed independent observer in London who wished to remain anonymous had told the paper that “the Spanish Government needs to understand that, instead of regularly

Spectacular car chase

Several police cars chased a motorist through Malaga, Torremolinos and Benalmádena after he refused to stop at a police checkpoint in the capital just after midnight last Friday. after driving at a dangerous speed through the streets of Malaga for half an hour, the driver headed for Torremolinos, by which time more national police patrol cars had joined in the chase. The driver whizzed through Torremolinos into Benaldmadena where he was intercepted by the police near the arroyo de la Miel sports ground. police said the driver had fled because one of his three passengers was a wanted man.

causing a great deal of anxiety to many people in the area”.

during a seven-day campaign to catch out drivers on secondary roads, the guardia civil issued 5,551 fines across the region, 2,333 of them for speeding. More than 100,000 vehicles were stopped during the campaign. Twelve drivers tested negative for drugs, 190 were over the alcohol limit and more than 200 were using their mobile phones. another 505 were not using the seat belts while 48 drivers did not have car seats for the children they were carrying. The rest were fined for a variety of so-called distractions – listening to music through earphones, and setting a gpS while driving, among others.

The Local Memo from Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

The Socialist problem

I

was delighted the other night to watch an interview on TVE's 24hours news channel with Joaquín Leguina, an Old Guard Socialist who was premier of the Madrid Community from 1983 to 1995. He was also one of the men who drafted the 1978 Constitution so I think his credentials are impeccable. After giving his views on what the Socialists can do to dig themselves out of the hole they are currently in, at the end of the interview he said the election of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero as general secretary of the Socialist Party in 2000 was an absolute disaster.

I

n a separate interview, which I found through Google, he said the Socialists are the "intellectual heirs of an intellectual illiterate, I'm referring to Zapatero". He went on to say that the next leader of the party should be "the gravedigger for Zapaterismo".

W

hen asked why the Socialist Party was lagging further and further behind in the opinion polls, despite the present government's austerity cuts, he replied that it was because it can't get rid of its immediate past. "Have you ever heard anyone saying that Zapatero was a fool," he said. "No, because I'm the only one who has said so." Here I beg to differ because I started calling Zapatero a fool shortly after he won the March 2004 election and only stopped calling him a fool after he disappeared off the political scene.

L

eguina went on: "Zapatero not only led the party into a tremendous thrashing in the November 2011 election, but he led this country into a mess like the Catalan problem, for which he is mainly responsible."

H

e also said the party's current leaders are devout "Zapateristos", incapable of correcting the last government's mistakes. He said they pandered to minority groups, such as gays, feminists, and ecologists, for example, all of whom have legitimate claims to make, but he added that when the Socialist Party talks about equality it only means equality between men and women, and not the equalities the party should be working for, that is, equality of income, or equality of opportunities. He called the party's current programme a "copy and paste" affair.

www.thenewsonline.es

I

t's not surprising that I only learned of this man's existence last week. With a tongue like that, no wonder the Socialists want to keep him in the background while they dig themselves deeper and deeper into their own grave. In Catalonia, for example, a recent opinion poll shows that the party would only get 14 per cent of the votes if an election were held tomorrow. That's because the party there is sounding more and more "independentista" in the hope of capturing votes, to the detriment of its Socialist ideals. The Republican Left, ERC, comes out way ahead, because it has a clear goal – independence for Catalonia.

I

n the Basque Country, the Socialists are sounding like a more pro-ETA party every day, refusing to join any protest by the ETA victims' groups who are up in arms about the recent EU Court of Human Rights ruling that could set more than 50 ETA free in the not-toodistant future.

A

nd in Asturias, the Socialists have just broken a pact with the Union, Progress and Democracy party (UP&D) to vote in the regional parliament in favour of electoral reform, which the UP&D is very interested in because the odds are currently stacked against small parties like itself. Spain has a weird voting system, designed to keep the two main parties in power while throwing crumbs to the regional – usually nationalist – parties and making it very difficult for new parties like the UP&D to get any representation in Parliament. For example, in the 2008 general election, the UP&D got around 300,000 votes, which translated into one seat in Parliament. Meanwhile, the Basque Nationalist Party got around 320,000 votes – and five seats in Parliament.

S T

o, as UP&D founder Rosa Diez has said, some votes are more equal than others.

he Socialists are set to meet this weekend to work out a programme "to take back power at the next election", according to a party spokesman. However, as far as I can see, the most important item on the agenda seems to be the date primaries will be held to elect the party's next leader. Unfortunately, the only runners in that race are all Zapateristos who will no doubt dig the Socialist grave even deeper than the usual six feet.

Putting ghosts to rest Writes for the English language version of

J

ust up the street from where I live, there is a church with a monument to the victims of the Civil War. The stone pillar, enclosed inside a wrought iron fence outside the door, just reads “1936-1939 All Present.” There had been some other symbols on the small cenotaph that were removed some years ago; no doubt they were dedicated to Franco’s fascist regime. Near the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, the wide streets still carry the names of General [José Enrique] Varela and General [Juan] Yagüe – better known as “the butcher of Badajoz”. There is even a large statue of Argentine dictator Juan Domingo Perón on a main thoroughfare that leads to the Real Madrid home, donated in the 1970s by the Argentinian government. In Segovia, one can see the dilapidated stone tribute to the Nationalist Blue Division force just a few blocks off the main plaza in a grassy park. And the list of these ancient Franco tributes around Spain go on and on. Even though the Historical Memory Law, passed by the Socialist government in 2007, demands that all these markers be torn down or removed, the current Partido Popular (PP) government has dragged its feet in carrying out what Parliament mandated six years ago.

N

ow the Socialists – a minority party in Parliament – want to move forward and demand that the Valley of the Fallen be turned into a historical site that honours both the Republicans and Nationalists, and that Franco’s remains be exhumed and given to his family for private burial. The PSOE bench in Parliament is planning to file a resolution in the coming days so that lawmakers can move forward and take action over the future of the mammoth monument. Even though a watered down version of the Historical Memory Law was passed,

one good thing about the statute that is being followed is the prohibition of political events and rallies at the Valley of the Fallen. In 2011, the past government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero concluded a study conducted by a special commission that recommended that the remains of Franco and Falangist leader Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera be exhumed and given to their respective families. But the current PP government has again dragged its feet and ignored these recommendations.

T

Anxiety in Asturias

he Socialists are in big trouble in the northern region of Asturias. Last week, their coalition partner UPyD withdrew its political support for the government of premier Javier Fernández. UPyD leader Rosa Diez explained that her party’s only deputy in the Asturias parliament would no longer be part of the electoral pact that allowed the Socialists to govern because Fernández had broken his agreement in pushing for electoral reform in the region. With 22 deputies, including the support of the United Left (IU), the Socialists have the same number as the Partido Popular and its coalition partner, Asturias Citizens Forum (FAC). Fernández’s party has denied that it has reneged on its deal to introduce reforms, saying instead that the Socialists wanted a broad consensus that included the PP and FAC before implementing changes to the regional election laws. At this point, it looks doubtful that Fernández’s minority government will survive the new year.

Just a bit of “Astroturf” needed for playground Most people believe that our future lies with the children of today. The children of now could be the ones to discover a cure for cancer, they could be a future prime minister, president or politician who could make a great deal of difference to how much our pensions are worth, how much social welfare goes on, or they could simply be the best men and women you’ll ever know. Each to their own – parents just want their kids to be the best they possibly can.

Children learn in a number of different ways. They learn from their families, they learn at school and they learn through play and interaction with their peers.

The children who live on Parque Diana have the first two to get them through life but they are sadly lacking a play area for them to get together and let off steam whilst learning social skills, such as how to work as a team and what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour to other kids. Their nearest decent play area is all the way into La Cala which, because it is decent, gets overcrowded. The residents have picked a place for such a playground in the little park at the bottom of the road on Riviera, behind where the taxis are and where the evening market was being held throughout the summer. A lot of you will realise what an ideal place this would be as there are loos there (kids always need loos!) and a water source for them to have a drink and for the equipment to be cleaned.

They already have the equipment that was donated second hand by the council. The residents have repaired, cleaned and repainted this themselves and all they now need is some Astroturf, or some equivalent good quality – it’s going to get a lot of wear! – grass lookalike product to use as a base

that can be properly cleaned and looked after.

A local contractor has said they will provide the concrete for the underbase but, if one of these kids is destined to be a great surgeon, we can’t have them falling off the swings and banging their heads on bare concrete. The council say that they simply don’t have the €2500 to €3000 that the Astroturf would cost.

President of Parque Diana Miguel Martin says that the residents have banded together to do what they can but they now just need the base to get going with the project. People of the area are fed up with having to travel

such a long way to enable their children to play safely and just want to get on with making the playground for local children.

Obviously, it would be great if Mijas Council could find the money to pay for it – maybe by not paying for yet another statue?, but if anyone feels they would like to donate some money or perhaps even supply the Astroturf, who knows, in the future you may need the help of one of these kids.

RBL all at sea An intrepid crew from the Coin branch of the Royal British Legion spent an amazing day aboard the cruise ship Norwegian Spirit on Saturday the 2nd of November. The group boarded the ship at the Malaga Cruise Terminal at 11am and was given a very warm welcome by their Norwegian Cruise Line host Carmen. After coffee and soft drinks in the boardroom, the group was split into two for a comprehensive tour of the ship which included the very impressive bridge area. Sailing the Mediterranean all year round, Norwegian Spirit is all about travelling in style and the visitors were permitted to check out the Tivoli Pool, four outdoor hot tubs and Buccaneer’s Wet and Wild. The outdoor tour was followed by a

leisurely stroll through 10 bars and lounges, Maharajah’s Casino and the Roman Spa & Fitness Centre. The highlight of the trip was a fantastic four-course lunch in the Garden Room. The dining room staff went out of their way to make the visitors feel special and most members of the group had several glasses of delightful wine in a valiant attempt to make the most of the cruise line’s incredible generosity. Chairman Jo Taylor gave a special vote of thanks to the tour organiser Jean Merry. Her knowledge of the cruise industry was inspirational and the many members of the branch are looking forward to the opportunity of spending some time together in the Greek Islands next year with the very impressive Norwegian Cruise Line.

Local man donates funds raised from whip auction Among the lots going under the hammer at the Doncaster St. Ledger meeting in September was a unique whip used by jockey Fred Archer who comitted suicide at the age of 28 following the death of his beloved wife. During his short career, Mr Archer rode in over 8,000 races, in 1/3rd of which his horses were winners. He won the Derby five times, the St. Ledgers six times and won many of the other top races in the UK. Coin resident Arthur Hutton-Watt inherited the whip from his family who owned the sire to Eclipse, one of the most famous race horses of all time. The whip was authenticated by the National Horseracing museum at Newmarket where they have a picture of Fred Archer with the whip. Racing pundit Clare Balding featured the item on a recent TV programme and the whip raised £5,200.

The Importance of the Padrón The British Consulate in Malága recently held an awareness workshop where they issued a rather grave warning to British expats living in Spain, to register on their Padrón or face the potential consequences of not doing so. The Padrón is a list kept by the town halls and statistics departments of Spain of those living within each municipality. It is a pre-requisite for anyone needing assistance from the Spanish social services and/or social security departments. Basically, if you are not on the Padrón you don't qualify, and the more years you are on the Padrón, the more benefits you could be entitled to should the need arise.

British Vice-Consul Rosslyn Crotty pointed out that when a British person (or any other nationality for that matter) choses to live in Spain they also

chose to accept the system of social care.

This could be especially important for the elderly or someone coming out of hospital who is without the traditional support of the extended Spanish family or even a close friend or relative to look after them and therefore need help from social services.

The fear of registering on the Padrón for many – British or otherwise – is their concern that the taxman or some other foreign bogeyman will come and get them in the middle of the night.

Anette Skou head of the Mijas foreigner residents department for nearly 29 years said “In most cases where social services are powerless to help it is because the British nationals involved have not registered on the Padrón. We urge all British residents in Spain to register on the Padrón –

you have nothing to lose”.

In fact you could have everything to gain and, for most, very little to fear.

Registering on the Padrón is good for you and good for the town or municipality you live in. Even in this cash strapped time the benefits are still there for the asking but are not there if you are not registered.

The procedure is simple. Take your passport and either your rates (IBI) receipt or Spanish rental contract, along with your certificate of residence (residencia) – or if you’re not resident your NIE number – to your town hall and ask to be included on the Padrón. Being on the Padrón could be important, if not now in the future, it is also the first step to being able to vote in local and EU elections. Pete Woodall Woody's Los Boliches

This month’s art expo in Mijas

The November art exhibition at the Mijas Hotel in Mijas Pueblo is entitled Mundo Celta featuring the works of Roger Cummiskey, a Dublin watercolourist, living in southern Spain.

He has developed a unique individual style and specialises in paintings that take their themes and titles from the wanderings and writings of James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Miguel de Cervantes and other literary and historical personalities. He is a recognised Joycean artist.

Roger´s paintings have been exhibited in Australia, China, Finland, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA, and in many national and private shows in Ireland.

His paintings have represented Ireland at the Florence Biennale and also at international art exhibitions in London, Stockholm and New York.

The Mijas exhibition continues until Saturday 30th November and is open seven days a week. For more information call 666 78 26 42 or go to the Mijas Art-Gallery website at mijasartgallery@hotmail.com

Trip tips An airline as well as the world’s oldest travel firm, Thomas Cook has introduced a website called ‘Trip Tips’.

It might be a little late for summer 2013 but in truth its recommendations are for all year round and affect both those travelling for leisure and business.

It is claimed to help holidaymakers plan their perfect holiday from booking advice and cost saving recommendations, to the latest mobile travel apps to download – and even advice on how to look after your pets while on holiday.

Using Thomas Cook’s own knowledgeable product advisers, overseas representatives and financial experts – as well as teaming up with Netmums, HMRC, T3 Magazine and many other contributors – ‘Trip Tips’ features advice from industry experts on numerous different travel related subjects.

Whether that is getting advice from HM Passport Office about applying for and renewing a passport, information on cost effective ways of looking after pets whilst on holiday from Pets at Home or finding out from the AA about driving in foreign countries, ‘Trip Tips’ aims to offer information and handy hints for every step of the customer journey. The ‘Trip Tips’ information hub has been broken up into five different categories: tips for booking your holiday, before you leave, airport savings, tips for while you are away and advice for when you return. www.thomascook.com/trip -tips

Murder most foul to be found at TAPAS When a dastardly murder is committed in a remote country house there’s only one man capable of solving the crime. Ably assisted by PC Plod, Inspector Drake unravels the mystery surrounding the death of John Johnson. However, nothing is ever straightforward when these two fine members of the police force get together.

The investigation is full of twists and turns and before the end there are more than a few extra dead bodies in the house. To add intrigue Plod’s pet spider, Wendy, has escaped so no one is safe especially if she bites you. Inspector Drake And The Black Widow, written

Act two was set in a village hall where a rather pompous bumbling vicar was busy organising the dress rehearsal for a fundraising show. This act featured some great songs and moments of humour and nostalgia.The finale featured the whole cast marching and singing two rousing songs that paid tribute to the heroes of the war.

So much credit must go to Jane Busby for conceiving, writing and directing the show. The show was expertly choreographed by Suzanne Turner, whose hard work and dedication certainly paid off.

The cast were superb and the audiences played their part by embracing the atmosphere. Although not visibly evident the back stage crew deserves much credit. The set was beautifully designed and built. The pub scene was so realistic it was hard to imagine you weren’t in a pub in 1940. Ken Ross’s artwork was great and the bar, piano and furniture built by John Parker was superb.

The costumes were excellent which is tribute to the ladies in wardrobe and particularly to Lynda Powell who sourced uniforms and costumes with her usual aplomb. Pearl Ailey did a fantastic job of

The hairdressers (Elaine and Jenny) expertly created authentic 1940’s styles. The show was expertly stage managed by Betty Ross who also contributed to the set design. The lighting was as usual excellent thanks to Gerry Harris. The sound, such a vital part of any production, was excellent and special thanks must go to Zion Uliel who, with Andy Busby’s help, made his TAPAS debut.

A very happy 1st birthday Tina and David, owners of The Olive Tree in Coin were pleasantly surprised by the full-to-bursting turnout for the restaurant’s first birthday last week. Frankie B started off the proceedings which got everybody up and dancing as usual. This was followed by a presentation of presents for them with the Olive Tree theme – bought from the proceeds of a whip-round of some of

their regular customers. Both made a small speech thanking everybody for all their custom and support over the past year ending with Tina stating that “without all your support, The Olive Tree wouldn’t be what it is today”.

DVD NEW RELEASE

Release date: November 5th

Director: Peter Landesman Starring: Zac Efron, Tom Welling, Billy Bob Thornton

MOVIES TO WATCH OUT FOR

Carrie

Directed by Kimberley Peirce Starring: Julianne Moore, Chloe Grace Moretz Here is the latest horror movie to roll off Hollywood’s assembly line of 70s and 80s horror movie remakes – and if you are old enough to have seen the Brian De Palma adaptation in 1976 of Stephen King’s first novel the first question in your mind will be ‘Why would anyone do that?’

The De Palma movie is a classic and a powerful examination of the pains of adolescence with a horrific depiction of repressed rage and hurt unleashed as Carrie deploys her telekinetic powers. Sissy

Spacek was utterly memorable as Carrie White, and Piper Laurie entirely convincing as the loopy religiously fanatical mother Margaret White.

This remake marches in the path of the De Palma version but does update the story with the introduction of modern social media elements like YouTube, Facebook and smart phones which nowadays form powerful weapons in the hands of those determined to bully those weaker than themselves. The Peirce version is

Clear History

DVD NEW RELEASE

graced by some good casting. Moretz does not have the other-worldly qualities of Spacek but her frizzy hair and slouched posture conveys vulnerability and shyness while Julianne Moore is less over-the-top than the madness conveyed by Piper Laurie.

For those who have not seen the original the story is about a shy outcast whose hidden telekinetic powers are unleashed with fatal consequences on her high school fellow pupils and her mother, when Carrie is abjectly

humiliated at her prom by kids keen to torment the outsider. In 1976 the ending was literally a jump-out-ofyour-seat moment which has become iconic and Peirce has not gone that route so Carrie veterans will find the retread ending less satisfactory. If you like horror and cannot compare it with the original, then this is a gore fest to enjoy along with the popcorn.

Recounting the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd, 1963, Parkland weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas' chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and

Any project that you are working on is likely to have a great impact, time is on your side and it is your inner passions and determination that will impress others. This is a great time to meet someone if you are single as you are well able to communicate clearly and effectively this week, conveying your plans to another. If you are in a steady relationship then speak directly from your heart and get the foundations nice and firm. There is favourable news on the way; information will be received that you need in order to help your efforts to enable you to put your talents and abilities to good use. Life is about to speed up but do not let it overwhelm you; take one day at a time. Expect that not all is going to go as you foresee it and remain adaptable and open to new ideas as they appear.

On the mental level it appears that you are gearing up for a change of pace and to work on something very different. A new level of clarity reaches you and allows you to understand that the choices you now decide on could completely change your current path. This can be a ‘make or break moment’ and it could be wise to keep some personal thoughts to yourself as all will have a way of working out in your favour anyway. Now you know what you really don’t want and are taking action to make sure that you do not stray down a path that is not for you, it is amazing how quickly things start to fall into place. So slow down and take your time to ask more questions until you get the answers that you know inside are correct. The only proof that works for you now is reality, not words.

A process has started and is likely to have repercussions so it is important for you to make sure that your bottom lines and boundaries are in place, especially when it comes to those that have messed with you in the past. Responsibilities are likely to increase and relationships could be temporarily strained, this is all designed to reveal problems or issues that need to be fixed or corrected.

The right people just happen to be there at the right time, this is one of those weeks when you are in tune with the universe and things tend to flow without much effort on your part. The people you are in contact with lately are likely to play a much larger role in your future than you initially think. Roll with what is happening and let your creativity flow.

Now is not the time to launch new things, you need to hold on a couple more weeks, others are likely to be very open to your ideas and suggestions though and you can use your influence to build upon what you have started. Give a project your all and see something through to completion, don’t give up or do it half heartedly, this is the moment for you to excel.

Your popularity and powers of attraction have soared through the roof this week and this will help things to go your way. Feelings are likely to be quite powerful and you will need an outlet to express all this energy – either focus them and enhance your romantic arena or crack on with a creative ambition. A surprising development of some kind could occur before the weekend and you may have several options to consider. Your ruling planet has gone retrograde and it is important for you to make sure that you are very clear and precise in your words and actions – say what you mean. If you have recently confronted a fear then it may now be time to have a rest and recharge your batteries, indulge in some down time and take time to reflect on all that has happened, it will do you good.

If anyone underestimated you and your abilities then they are going to get a surprise this week. New doors fly open and new acquaintances enter. There are things to complete and you will need an action plan to stay on track. Someone close could lean on you, assuming that you can make something right again, in a matter of seconds. If you pull this off you will certainly secure some admiration.

You have no idea how intimidating others can find you – the power and influence of your truthful directness can throw others off balance in an instant. It may be that someone close to you is under par and it could be beneficial for you to soften your words of wisdom and deliver your speech with more subtlety this week. Relax down and opportunities will reveal themselves.

Blessed this week with an ultra awareness that allows you to see way beyond what is happening on the surface, this allows you the courage to confront others on their true reasons and motivations. You could hear from those who live far away or from relatives and friends who are thinking about creating a home base in a new area. By next week a development occurs that could bring significant reward.

ink FAA gives green light Geek for gadgets use US aviation regulators have cleared the use of gadgets during take-off and landing. Passengers are expected to be allowed to use their smartphones, tablets and eBook readers without interruption by the end of this year on US airlines. The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has been considering the move for the past year. However, internet connectivity will still be banned below 10,000ft, while phone calls will remain banned throughout flights. The changes mean that passengers will be able to continue using their laptops, play games, watch videos, listen to music and read eBooks throughout domestic and international flights. However, it is unlikely that passengers will be able to use their gadgets from today. Airlines will need to perform tests before being

allowed to change their own policies on using gadgets during flights. Airlines must show to the FAA that they can handle the effects of electronics on flight instruments. It is believed that they will also need to show how it will be impossible for terrorists to use such devices to communicate with the stowage areas of the plane. US airline Delta is expected

to be the first airline to allow passengers to use electronics on board. It has already submitted plans to the regulator and may begin allowing passengers to use electronics from later today. The UK aviation regulator – the Civil Aviation Authority – admitted to the BBC that the FAA’s decision may see restrictions relaxed in the UK and Europe.

Ask Calvin and Sue: Hair & Beauty Dear Sue,

I am 25 years old but my hands look like they belong to a much older woman. How can I revitalise them? Anne, Torremolinos Dear Anne,

Really we should all be treating our hands with the same care as our faces. They too suffer wear and tear often in much more extreme conditions – cleaning products when used without gloves are very harsh. Keep nail oil and hand cream in an obvious place so you remember to apply them, for example by the sofa for when you watch tv, in your handbag so it is always with you,on your bedside

table when you apply last thing at night the products have time to soak in.

In the morning remember to put sunscreen on them. If you do a weekly exfoliation of your face and use a mask include your hands in this routine. If you have excess face cream on your hands rub it in rather than on the towel and try to use gloves to protect them when doing household chores. Dear Sue,

A friend of mine told me that now autumn has arrived I should change my skin care routine. Is that correct? Lynne, Alhaurin de la Torre

Dear Lynne,

The simple answer to that is yes. Your skin will be subjected to seasonal highs and lows. Adjust your regime accordingly, depending on how your skin feels as each season takes over. Most of my clients are having their facial peeling treatments to rid the skin of dead cell build up from the summer so we are working with creams to revitalise and kick-start the cell renewal process.

As we move towards winter you may need to use serums or creams for drier skins. Oily skins may have become even more greasy in humid summer months so use a balancing cream to even them out. Remember the skin is a living organ

and in the same way that we change our clothes to keep warm and change our diet our skin needs a change as well. Dear Calvin,

After the summer my hair looks dull and lifeless. Any ideas of what I can do to make it look better? Debbie, Marbella Dear Debbie,

Hair takes a beating over the summer. Over exposure to the sun, seawater and sand all contribute in drying the hair out and giving it a dull and lifeless feel and look. A moisturising shampoo and conditioner plus a protein-based treatment will help to

restore the hair to a much healthier look, but remember this will take time. Dear Calvin,

I have very thick hair that has got long in the summer as I have worn it up in a ponytail. I'd like to have it cut into an easy to care for style. Which would be best and what should I avoid? Yvonne, Mijas Dear Yvonne,

It is very difficult to advise the best style for you without seeing you in person. I always advise, if you are thinking of a total restyle, that it is best to book a consultation in a salon. Face shape plays a big part in choosing a new

style as does how much time you are prepared to spend styling your new look.

Look at your lifestyle. Do you want to wash and go? Are you prepared to style every day? This will give you a basic idea which direction you should go. Also look through magazines for ideas.

Families cut back Blood test to detect on fresh food spread of cancer Many young families cut back on fresh fruit and vegetables and switched to less healthy processed food as the recession squeezed budgets, according to a study of 15,000 UK households. The report's authors used food purchasing data from 15,850 British households from 2005 to 2012, to analyse the impact on spending of the recession. They found that households spent 8.5% less on food in real terms across the period as disposable incomes failed to keep pace with rising food prices.

Official figures show that food prices rose by 33% between 2007 and 2013. Butter, meat and fruit prices all increased by more than average while processed food rose by 28%. People also swapped the type of food they bought,

shifting from fresh fruit and vegetables to "calorie dense" processed food, with a resulting increase in saturated fat and sugar content, the Food Expenditure and Nutritional Quality over the Great Recession report said.

A second report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies said pensioner households, single parents and families with young children experienced a worse-thanaverage decline in nutritional quality. Pensioners tended to increase their purchases of fatty foods while households with young children chose more sugary products. A spokesman for the Children's Food Trust said: "Some of the trends in this report are a huge worry – we need to see the foods children eat containing less saturated fat, salt and sugar, not more."

A simple blood test could be used to identify patients whose melanoma cancer has spread, according to Dundee University researchers. Melanoma, the most virulent form of skin cancer, is particularly difficult to detect and treat once it spreads. The researchers say that measuring levels of a gene called TFP12 in DNA in the blood could be key. They added that it could be a possible target for developing new treatments to tackle melanoma, particularly for cancers that have spread to the brain, lungs and other organs. The research team also identified another potential biomarker, called NT5E, which appears to be linked to spread of aggressive melanoma. They said the next step was to develop a panel of similar biomarkers that would help to detect those patients needing extra treatment to fight their melanoma. The researchers said: "By using a blood test, we

have the basis of a simple and accurate way of discovering how advanced the disease is, as well as an early warning sign of whether it has started to spread.

"This would give doctors and patients important information much sooner than is possible at the moment.

"There's increasing evidence that the latest treatments are more effective in these early stages and, if we can identify patients whose cancer has only just started to spread, this would significantly improve the chances of beating the disease."

A spokesman for Cancer Research UK said the research could be important.

"This work could lead to quicker diagnosis and potentially new treatments, giving patients and doctors an even better chance of beating the disease," he said.

Freezing conditions prevailed as queues of fans lined up to buy the new Call Of Duty: Ghosts game

Above and beyond the call of duty

… but the weather didn’t stop the fans pulling an all-nighter plus celebrities getting in on the act. The new version of the computer game “Call Of Duty” was released on Monday with fans braving all-night queues to get their hands on a copy of the game. And the red-carpet release party at the IndigO2 staged a celebrity multiplayer tournament with England footballer Daniel Sturridge being part of a team of six that won. In a tense final streamed live on the Call Of Duty website, Sturridge won 13-11 against the game developers' senior community manager Tina Palacios. Among other celebrities taking part were rapper Wretch 32, hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks, England footballer Andros Townsend and England rugby player Tom Croft. This 10th instalment entitled Call Of Duty: Ghosts had hundreds of stores across the UK opening their doors at midnight to eager buyers afraid that

they might miss out on the first wave of sales despite the plummeting temperatures as they queued.

Kevin Kite, 32, a funfair worker from Kilburn in London, queued from 9.30pm at a Game store in Camden to get a copy of the new title. He said: "I have been playing Call Of Duty for the last 10 years. When I am off work, I play it all the time, about 20-30 hours a week. I booked the day off work tomorrow so I can go home and play the new game all night long." Wow, he must be fun to live with!

Justin Tillock, 31, a stage hand at the Shaftesbury Theatre, said: "I absolutely would not waste my time queuing for any other games. I will go home and unashamedly play the game until sunlight."

Call Of Duty: Ghosts

Not a Can you identify lot of this girl? bottle Teen heart throb Justin Bieber stormed off the stage during a gig in Sao Paulo after being hit by a flying water bottle that had been thrown onto the stage by an over zealous fan. Star Bieber, 19, refused to return to the stage following the incident after staring into the audience and walking off the stage without a word. Reports said that fans tried to coax him back by singing his biggest hit, Baby, but he was having none of it after the bottle ricocheted off him, during his bare chested gig on Saturday night in Brazil. Previous tabloid reports had said that he had attended a high-end brothel in Rio de Janeiro. The star has also been in trouble recently for allegedly hitting out at photographers and urinating in a restaurant mop bucket.

Police have released a picture of an unidentified teenage girl who was found wandering the centre of Dublin nearly a month ago. The girl, who could be as young as 14, was found in a dazed state in the Irish capital on October 10th, but has yet to speak to the police. Interpol has been called in to try to identify the girl, who may be from Eastern Europe. She is described as 5ft 6in tall, of slim build, with long blonde hair. She was found wearing a purple hooded top, tight dark coloured jeans, flat black shoes and a grey woollen jumper. It is believed her clothes were bought in major

retailers in Ireland, but detectives could not determine when they were purchased. The girl also has a brace, but paediatric orthodontists contacted in Ireland were unable to shed any light on her identity through their records. Police said a major investigation was under way into the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the girl. The probe has so far involved more than 2,000 man hours and more than 115 lines of enquiry.

Shutterbugs Group by email

Thank you for publishing an article on the Shutterbugs Photographic Group’s exhibition at the Casa de la Cultura in Alhaurin el Grande.

The Opening night was on Monday with 36 photographs from 18 photographers on display. The title of the exhibition is Chicas – Senoritas – Señoras, the subject of "women" was chosen by Alhaurin Councillors as

there will be a major conference in Alhaurin later on in November on Violence against Women.

The opening night was a great success with around 80 people in attendance, the exhibition being opened by Councillor Carmen Brescia Tamayo who is responsible for the Foreigners Department, tourism, women's issues and many other functions. Councillor Brescia was supported by Councillors

Bob Mitchell Bob Mitchell, the Communist is back in Spain for another 6 months and what is the first article I read in The News? It is the anti-communist one by Muriel Pilkington and the next one is that 3 million people in Spain are living in dire poverty. I am sure those 3 million are not the slightest bit interested in what happened in Russia in 1917, nearly 100 years ago. What a pity she was not writing an article telling them how Spain can solve the problem of being billions of Euros in debt, how Spain can solve the problem of all the people

Marcos Aurelio and councillor Victor Romero.

The Memorial Trophy was awarded to John Campbell. The councillor judges felt it represented the most "women" as the photo featured young and old people together. The exhibition is at the Casa de La Cultura in Alhaurin el Grande until the 29th November 2013.

unemployed, homeless, in debt, living in poverty and seeing their children going to bed hungry and give the 3 million some hopes for the future. As a last word I would like to quote Winston Churchill when he said: “The Russian people, at a cost of 30 million lives tore the guts out of the German army,” and saved the lives of millions of people like me, communists, socialists, trade unionists, gypsies, Jews, gays ec.,, etc. Thank you Uncle Joe for the fact that I am still alive at 94.

WEDNESDAY, November 6th 2013

Muriel or any of us had the answers to all the problems of Spain we would do something about it but, unfortunately, that isn’t the case. Perhaps you have the answer? Also, I’m sure that the British, French, Americans, Indians, Canadians and all those who fought on the allies side in the second world war may have something to do with the millions of lives saved and not just the Russians who, let’s face it killed millions of their own people. Have a look at books by Anthony Beevor on the subject to find out more.

Torremolinos

heading "Residents denounce dangerous trees' and I wondered if you ever printed the outcome of that. I was away for July and August of this year, (too hot for me here), so of course something could have come out during that period. I have a particular interest because in my community we have a similar problem with eucalyptus trees completely over growing here in Torreblanca, both in our own garden but worse so in the neighbour’s in the large house next door which is completely overgrown. These trees are full of oil and if they ever caught fire it would be very serious. One side of the trees is on a main road and I have often seen people throwing lit cigarette ends into the growth beneath the trees. I never miss your super paper and one of my first

jobs on a Wednesday each week is to drive into Los Boliches to pick it up, and it is to your great credit that you have built it up into the success it is.

Editor says: Crikey, that’s some time ago! No, there was no follow-up to the story so I have no idea what happened to the trees that were mentioned in the article but would suggest a visit to the President of the Edificio Andaluz in La Colina, Torremolinos where the trees were and ask them. I would say that I became aware of the fact that Eucalyptus trees do have a habit of “dropping their limbs” as part of their natural cycle while I was in Australia. Mostly the trees are along rivers or in the “woop woop” where they generally do no harm but must be a bit scary for the Koalas up in them!

The Evening Star You may have noticed a very bright ‘Star’ close to the western horizon just after sunset. It isn’t a star it is the planet Venus.

B

ecause Venus is closer in to the Sun than we are it is known as an inferior planet along with Mercury and it never appears very far from the Sun either after sunset or before sunrise giving rise to its romantic title of the Evening Star or Morning Star.

V

enus is the second planet out from the Sun and is the closest planet to the Earth – both in distance and in size, it is just slightly smaller than Earth. After the Moon Venus is the brightest ‘natural’ object in the night sky, although the International Space Station can sometimes outshine it. Venus is named after the Roman Goddess of love and beauty and it’s easy to see why with its dazzling brightness, but the truth is far from beautiful.

V

enus goes around the Sun once every 224 days compared to our 365 days but a day on Venus lasts for 243 days so a day on Venus lasts longer than a year! Also while all the other planets in the solar system spin on their axis from west to east Venus spins the opposite direction from east to west. It is hard to imagine what a ‘day’ might look like on Venus with the Sun rising very, very slowly in the west, staying in the sky for more than a year until slowly sinking in the east. That is if you could even see the Sun.

V

enus is completely covered in a dense blanket of clouds so thick that you wouldn’t be able to see more than a few feet in front of you. These clouds are almost 96% carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide, creating a runaway greenhouse effect that is causing the temperature to reach over 460ºC at the surface. It is even hotter than the planet Mercury even though Venus is nearly twice as far from the Sun as Mercury. The pressure at the planet's surface is about 92 times that at Earth's surface – a pressure equivalent to that at a depth of nearly 1 km under Earth's oceans.

T

here are winds of over 300mph and because of the thick atmosphere and pressure it would be like walking through a river of treacle. Volcanoes spew molten sulphur onto the surface and it ‘rains’ sulphuric acid.

B

Venus has been described as the closest thing to Hell that you can imagine.

oth the Americans and Russians have sent several probes to Venus over the years but because of the horrendously inhospitable conditions at the surface none have survived more than a few hours before being either melted or crushed. Almost everything we now know about Venus has been collected from orbital probes that have used radar to map the surface. I think that the chances of astronauts ever landing on Venus even in the distant future is very unlikely indeed.

I

f you observe Venus through a telescope over the course of its orbit around the Sun it displays phases similar to those of the Moon. When it is at the far side of the Sun from us it appears as almost a fully lit face. Then as it begins its journey it moves further and further away from the glare of the Sun as it gets closer to us. When Venus reaches its maximum to the side of the Sun then only the side facing the Sun is lit and we see a half phase. Then as it begins to move in closer to the Sun the phase gradually gets less and less until it is between the Sun and us and lost in the Sun’s glare.

K

eep your eye on Venus over the next few months as it moves further away from the Sun until the beginning of April 2012 when it will be at its maximum from the Sun and dazzlingly bright in the night sky. Then for the next few months it will gradually move between the Sun and Earth until it reappears at the end of the year as the Morning Star, rising before the Sun in the east.

Vettel drives off into the night The German just drove away from his rivals under the Yas Marina floodlights taking the chequered flag a massive 30.8 seconds ahead of second-placed team mate Mark Webber, and was never headed in the day-night race. Red Bull's four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday to chalk up his seventh successive victory and equal the longest winning streak in the modern era of Formula One. The 26-year-old German has now won 11 races this season, 37 in his career, and his seventh success in a row equalled the single-season tally racked up by fellow German Michael Schumacher in 2004. The all-time record of nine was set by Italian Alberto Ascari, although that was over two seasons in 1952-53, and nobody would bet against Vettel matching that feat before the year is out with races in Austin, Texas, and Brazil to come.

"I remember when I was a small kid watching Formula One and Michael was with Ferrari and dominating ... if you look back, you feel like he won every second race. To equal some of the stuff that they managed to achieve is very, very special." To celebrate his win, Vettel pulled over on his slowing down lap and

performed more of the smoking 'donuts' that landed him in trouble last weekend in India where he captured his fourth successive championship.

Nissan sign up Barcelona to use electric NV200

Pope Francis keeps the faith with Black Cats

Nissan is to launch a battery-powered version of its NV200 van aimed at private customers and fleets based in European cities. It is part of the car maker’s push to offer zero- or low-emission alternatives for its entire lineup to meet the region's tougher pollution rules.

The e-NV200 will launch in 2014, well ahead of the proposed 2020 deadline, at which time fleet CO2 for vans would decrease to 147 grams per kilometre from 203g/km now.

Barcelona is one of the cities Nissan is working with. Nissan and the Barcelona government signed a memorandum of understanding earlier this year for the car maker to develop a taxi version of the e-NV200 for the Spanish city. In exchange, the city will install a network of Nissan-designed electric charging stations around Barcelona. To further

"Just bring the car home into the garage," race engineer Guillaume 'Rocky' Rocquelin told him, probably knowing already the futility of his

Stuggling Sunderland may have been anything but

encourage sales of the eNV200 – and other electric vans – the Barcelona government said it also is considering creating special EV loading zones, establishing EV-only taxi stops, offering tax breaks for EV fleets and only allowing EVs into designated sections of the city during certain times of the day.

Nissan has not announced a price for the e-NV200, which will be built at the car maker’s factory in Barcelona, where Nissan also makes the fuelpowered NV200. The electric van will share its powertrain with the Leaf and get its batteries from Nissan's factory in Sunderland, England.

words."Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know what I'm doing," replied Vettel, echoing the famous words of Kimi Raikkonen on his way to victory in Abu Dhabi last year in response to unwanted advice from his Lotus team. "You can pay the fine on that one," said team principal Christian Horner. Red Bull were fined €25,000 for failing to instruct Vettel to return directly and park his car in the pit lane last week in India. Germany's Nico Rosberg was third for Mercedes, 33.6 seconds behind, with Frenchman Romain Grosjean ending a run of three podium finishes with fourth place. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, came in fifth crossing the finish line more than a minute after

Vettel, although the Spaniard was under investigation for allegedly gaining an advantage by breaching the track limits while overtaking. Stewards later decided to take no further action, ruling that the Spaniard had no choice in his actions.

Kimi Raikkonen threatens to boycott races over pay dispute

Kimi Raikkonen says he may not take part in the final two races of the season if his Lotus team do not fulfil a promise to solve a financial dispute. Raikkonen, who decided to race in Abu Dhabi at the last minute, says he has "not been paid a single euro all year".

"I came here only because, hopefully, we found an understanding," he said. "Hopefully it will be fixed and we can finish the season. If it's not dealt with as it should be, we end up in an unfortunate situation." Raikkonen's Lotus salary is eight million euros (£6.7m) plus a bonus of €50,000 (£42,000) a point. That means Lotus so far owe him €17.15m (£14.5m) this year. He was also not paid in 2012 until the end of the season. Lotus have cash-flow problems and argue they need to take care of their employees first because Raikkonen is already a multi-millionaire and does not need the money to live.

infallible this season, but one man appears to be keeping the faith. Pope Francis was given a personalised Black Cats shirt ahead of the derby clash with arch-rivals Newcastle United recently. The shirt was presented to him by Father Marc LydenSmith, who is Sunderland Football Club's chaplain. He was in Rome with Bishop Seamus Cunningham and a group of

pilgrims. “I managed to give the shirt to the Pope during his general audience on Wednesday despite being in a crowd of 120,000. He is a

bit too diplomatic to be drawn into picking a side but I asked him to pray for the club and he said he would.” said Father Smith

Malaga win the desperation derby Malaga 3 - 2 Real Betis After last week’s debacle losing at home to Celta Vigo, Malaga picked up a good battling point on Tuesday in Barcelona against Espanyol, but they returned to La Rosaleda knowing that three points were a must against a struggling Real Betis side.

Schuster kept the same side from Tuesday, which was the first time this season he had made no changes. After a scrappy start Malaga had the first chance of the game after ten minutes when defender Tissone hit a right-footed shot from outside the box over the bar. Three minutes later and Malaga went in front, an Eliseu cross was met by Santa Cruz who headed the ball in at the second time of asking. On 33 minutes

Betis were level with their first attempt on goal. Verdu stepped up to curl a free kick into the top corner past Willy Caballero who got a hand to it. Malaga had a couple of half chances but went into the break all level.

Ten minutes into the second half Fabrice and Betis's Damien Perquis had a nasty clash of heads resulting in an ambulance coming on to the pitch and a double fracture of the jaw for the Betis player. After a short delay play continued, and five minutes later Malaga were in front once more. Eliseu, assisted by Portillo finished well after a great move. But the lead was only to last two minutes as Jordi Figueras headed from the centre of the box to the top right

corner following a set piece situation. Betis looked more confident and broke well down the right only the final ball letting them down from possibly taking the lead. It was looking like the points were going to be shared, until, the 94th minute when Eliseu set off down the left, got to the byline and squared the ball for Portillo whose shot was pushed onto the bar by the keeper and the rebound fell to Samuel who smashed the ball home to the delight of the home fans.

Malaga have another Andalucian derby on Friday night when they travel to Granada kicking off at 10pm. Report by Scott Forbes

Wayne’s Weekly Poker Tips

I received an email from Chris, who tells me he is an on-line player, he prefers Holdem NL cash at 25/50c limit and has been playing for about 18 months. His question is; when he hits a big flop he always finds it difficult to take down a big pot as his opponents always seem to fold, He also cites an example of a week ago when he hit his first Royal Flush against an aggressive player after raising with Ac/Qc pre flop in an early position. “The villain was on the button calling and 3 betting a lot of raises from position. The flop came down Jc/10/c/Kc which I checked allowing the villian to bet half the pot which I duly smooth called. The turn came 7d which I checked and so did the villain, the river showed a 3s so led out with a half pot size bet for value but the other player folded.” In my opinion, Chris, you extracted the most you were going to get paid from this player, he bet the flop because it was a dangerous board for a none club hand and no doubt shut down after

your call putting you on a better hand. This may be a clue to why you are not taking down bigger pots. When you hit the nuts, you state you are a tight player with good hand selection but are you playing too predictably? Most players at 25/50c level have a good understanding of the game so watch your betting and calling patterns – either play every hand exactly the same or mix it up. Remember if you’re going to mix it up be very random, playing every hand differently. If you raised with AK 3xbb last time only raise by 2xbb this time.

If you do raise and get some action do not play the flop the same way, sometimes fire a continuation bet and sometimes check even if you hit the flop (if you hit a good flop on a strong drawing board I recommend always betting out here for value and defence).

You have only been playing a short time Chris, so to be holding your own at 25/50c blinds in my opinion you are doing well. The standard of play here by the regulars is good and they will pick up on-line tells whereas at the micro levels this is less of an issue. At 25/50c we do need to mix things up by playing a few random hands, rather than just premium hands, as these players will call and 3 bet super tight players as they know if they fire back to fold. At the micro levels we need to play tight aggressive ABC poker as a lot of players at these levels do not like the fold button... which is good for a winning player.

Sven writes off England’s chances

Former boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has written off England's chances of winning the 2014 World Cup. The 65-year-old Swede, now a coach in China, led England to the quarter-finals in both 2002 and 2006. He told BBC Radio 5 live: "I don't believe they can win the World Cup in Brazil. Maybe in Russia in 2018. Eriksson believes another run to the last eight in Brazil, matching his own best with England, would be a success for current manager Roy Hodgson.

CRICKET

Cook not fazed by Shane Warne criticism

England captain Alastair Cook says he is not worried about criticism from Shane Warne ahead of his side's penultimate Ashes warm-up match. Ex-Australia spinner Warne said Cook's captaincy is "negative" and "boring". "It is water off a duck's back," said Cook. "It is something we have come to expect from him." Warne also questioned opener Cook's captaincy during the summer when England beat Australia 3-0 to retain the Ashes. "We wouldn't really expect anything different in terms of an Australian slagging off an Englishman," said Cook. "That's pretty much how it is."
