Race to save Typhoon survivors

US and British vessels were heading to the Philippines on Tuesday as the UN appealed for aid amid the large-scale devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. The US has deployed an aircraft carrier and navy ships to the Philippines, while the UK is sending a naval destroyer.

In a statement on Tuesday, the US said that the aircraft carrier USS George Washington and other navy ships should arrive in the Philippines "within 48-72 hours". UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced that the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Darling would soon

head to the disaster zone from Singapore. It would take five days to arrive but once in the Philippines would bring engineering and first aid expertise, as well as the use of a Lynx helicopter.

Other countries have also pledged millions of dollars in assistance. Japan is providing $10m and Australia $9m in humanitarian aid, while New Zealand has pledged over $1m.

Race to save survivors


By Kym Wickham

Last weekend we had an impromptu Sunday lunch at the Tamisa Golf Hotel and I think everybody who could make it had a good time. Now the festive season is almost upon us and we have to arrange the staff Christmas Party but someone’s already booked the whole hotel for the night we wanted, so we’re going to have to adjust it, probably sooner rather than later. I was going to pop back to the UK to see my friend who lives near Bournemouth but, to fly into Bournemouth (yes that sleepy little town in the south of England where nothing much happens) was going to cost at least €1400 return! Won’t be doing that then, and to fly in and out of Gatwick – which I quite like as I always get my hire cars from Victoria Car Hire and have never had a problem – I would have to get back to the airport at 4am on Sunday to get back in time for work. That sort of time I get up at every Wednesday but to also drive from Bournemouth

See page 16 of Out and About for details.

P.A.D. is desperate for funds to help them support their ever-growing numbers of rescue dogs and cats. Join them this Sunday in a sponsored walk along the Paseo in Fuengirola.

A picture is slowly emerging of the full damage wrought by the storm:

The exposed easterly town of Guiuan, Samar province, with a population of 40,000, is said to be largely destroyed. l

Rip Off!

to get there is just daft. Why do all the airlines (apart from Norwegian Air that takes over four hours with a drop down in Alicante but leaves at a better time) only take off until March at stupid-o’clock in the morning? Surely there must be enough of us who want to travel back late afternoon Sunday so we don’t miss the whole day if we’re only there for the weekend. Mad isn’t it? Little Man Jackson has had his bucket off his head for a few days now. Is he being good and calm so he doesn’t get “got” by the cats again? Dream on, is he heck and, if anything he’s got even more energy. Whatever he’s got, I want some of it!

Haiyan brought sustained winds of 235km/h, with gusts of 275 km/h and waves as high as 15m. In some places, as much as 400mm of rain fell. On Monday, the typhoon weakened into a tropical storm and reached Vietnam, where at least 13 people died. The storm then moved into southern China, triggering rainstorms in Guangxi province, staterun news agency Xinhua reported. The heavy rains have left one dead and affected nearly one million people in Guangxi, Xinhua added.

Move leftwards at Socialist Party conference

The Socialist Party's political conference ended in Madrid on Sunday with the promise of a radical change in the direction of a party that is still reeling from the trouncing it took in the November 2011 election. On the economic front, the party proposed fiscal reforms that aim to recoup money from high earners and businesses through a fusion of income and wealth taxes, while eliminating income tax for the unemployed and people earning less than €16,000 a year. The party also wants to introduce a salary scale that ensures no executive can earn in excess of 12 times the salary of employees. The loudest applause was for the party's commitment to shake up Spain’s relations with the Vatican. The party

unanimously approved tearing up the concordat of 1979, which grants the Catholic Church tax breaks and a strong influence over the education curriculum. The party proposed removing religious education from the curriculum, and for religious classes to be taught outside of normal timetable hours. It also wants to remove religious symbolism from public events. Ramón Jáuregui, a cabinet minister under José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, was booed when he read the party’s response to petitions from

some sectors for a referendum to allow Spaniards to choose between a constitutional monarchy and a republic. These were rejected outright. “The Party reiterates its tradition of republican politics but believes that the constitutional consensus

on the subject of the monarchy should be maintained. An alternative agreement is not possible in our current social panorama.” Also discussed was an initiative to fight corruption with a policy of “one person, one salary,”

Son-in-law in hot Sex-trafficking ring smashed water again In raids in Madrid, Toledo, Cantabria and Palma de Mallorca, police arrested 25 people in a sex-trafficking ring that brought women from Nigeria to work as prostitutes.

King Juan Carlos's disgraced son-in-law inflicted still further embarrassment on the Royal Family when a series of crude and sexist private emails in which he ridicules his in-laws were published last week.

Iñaki Urdangarin, who was given the title of Duke of Palma when he married the King's youngest daughter Princess Cristina in 1997, is currently under investigation for using his royal connections to embezzle public funds. Emails from his computers, seized as part of the investigation, were leaked to the daily newspaper El Mundo. In two of them sent by Urdangarin to his wife he insulted Letizia Ortiz, a former TV journalist and newsreader, just days after Crown Prince Felipe announced his engagement to her. In

The women, lured with the promise of good jobs in Europe, were first flown to Mexico or Brazil, using false identity documents. From there, they were

another email he forwards a photo montage comparing Jaime de Marichalar, the then husband of Princess Elena, to Inspector Clouseau and Inspector Gadget – who all have a penchant for trench coats and trilby hats. The princess divorced her husband in 2010. Urdangarin also reveals a sexist side, forwarding a joke about women's inability to grasp modern

technology, implying they can't tell the difference an iron and a computer mouse.

In another he sends a spoof email to friends saying he had taken up a job with a Spanish NGO to work with refugees in the Middle East, attaching a photograph of the group he has been assigned to work with – six topless girls brandishing rifles.

flown to Paris, then smuggled into Spain to work in the sex trade, police said. Five women were freed in the raids, one of whom was having an abortion performed on her by a member of the gang. Goods worth an estimated €5 million were found in 94 vans seized in Madrid and another 26 in the port of Valencia, containing alcohol and luxury items.

Police said the goods were sold and the profits were sent back to Lagos.

Police said the gang was formed more than 20 years ago in Nigerian universities and was also known for sending so-called Nigerian letters by email, asking recipients to send money. Eight of the 25 people arrested were in Spain illegally, they said.

Move leftwards at Socialist Party conference Continued from PAGE THREE The party also promised to curb the “revolving door” of politicians moving to companies in the private sector that might have benefited from their decisions.

The party hierarchy dismissed calls for the abolition of voting discipline, whereby all MPs are obliged to toe the line in Parliament, but accepted the idea of giving deputies

greater freedom in general during debates by reforming the congressional rulebook. Electoral reform was also ruled out.

The party also stated its intention to seek the prohibition of extremist and xenophobic parties via a reform to the Political Parties Law, which the ruling Partido Popular (PP) is against.

The party also wants to put limits to pardons. Government pardons are regulated by a law dating from the 19th century and have caused controversy recently. The idea is not to eliminate them but to convert them into an exceptional measure to be used only when the sentencing court is also in favour. Corruption cases will be excluded entirely.

Noisy pianist faces jail time due to upset neighbour

A professional pianist identified only as Laia M. faces a seven-and-ahalf-year jail sentence as a result of a legal complaint by her former neighbour in Puigcerdà, Girona who alleges she played her instrument eight hours a day, five days a week.

Prosecutors are seeking the sentence for crimes against the environment –

acoustic contamination – and the psychological damage caused to Sonia B. between 2003 and 2007.

The pianist's lawyers have asked for the case to be thrown out, saying the complaint is “completely disproportionate.” Both the defendant and her parents, who face the same sentence as

accessories to the fact, deny the claims. Laia M. said she could not have been playing the piano when Sonia B. claims, because as she was studying outside Puigcerdà. Medical reports state that Sonia B. suffered hearing damage, panic attacks and problems during her pregnancy as a result of the

“environmental auditory stress”. Sonia B. and her family moved to Galicia in 2007. In addition to the jail term, prosecutors want Laia M. banned from any profession that involves a piano for four years, a fine of €10,800 and damages of €9,900. The trial is expected to end later this week.

Catalans boycott cava producer Freixenet president Josep Lluís Bonet, has admitted there is a boycott of his company’s cava both within Spain as a whole – as has been the case intermittently for many years – and now also in Catalonia, following his statements in The New York Times that "from an economic point of view, Catalonia is an essential part of Spain and so it

should continue to be".

Bonet told the Nueva Economiá Fórum that Freixenet had not shelved plans to invest in a €30 million logistics centre in Catalonia because of the independence movement: “Nothing has been stopped. Freixenet continues to invest in Catalonia and other parts of Spain. I think the

future is in multiregionalization." He said it was important to be in all areas of Spain where good wine is made, "and that is the direction the company is moving in".

Kamikaze driver's pardon overturned

The Supreme Court has overturned a government pardon for motorist ramón Jorge ríos Salgado who killed 25-year-old José alfredo dolz in 2003 while driving the wrong way down a highway for five kilometres. The case caused considerable controversy because ríos's lawyer is the brother of a Partido Popular mP, while Justice minister alberto ruizGallardón's son worked at the legal firm at the time. Both the PP and Gallardón said the minister's son was not involved in the case, as he worked in the firm's mercantile section and had been out of the country at the time. ríos was released in January after serving 10 months of a 13-year sentence and ordered to pay a 4,000-euro fine. His lawyers had managed to keep him out of prison for nine years with a series of appeals before he was jailed in 2012.

Egypt 'worst for women'

Egypt is now the worst country for women's rights in the Arab world, according AUSTRALiA to a poll of 330 gender experts in 21 Arab League states, as well as Syria, for Major Bitcoin theft from website the Thomson Reuters Foundation. An Australian man who ran an online "wallet service" for storing

The poll asked experts to assess factors such as violence against women, reproductive rights, treatment of women within the family and women's role in politics and the economy.

The survey said discriminatory laws and a spike in trafficking contributed to Egypt's place at the bottom of the ranking of 22 Arab states. "There are whole villages on the outskirts of Cairo and elsewhere where the bulk of economic activity is based on trafficking in women and forced marriages," said

Bitcoins has claimed hackers stole virtual currency from his site worth more than one million Australian dollars.

Zahra Radwan of US-based rights group Global Fund for Women.

However, sexual harassment was cited as the main factor. A UN report in April said 99.3 per cent of women and girls in Egypt had been subjected to sexual harassment. "The social acceptability of everyday sexual harassment affects every woman in Egypt regardless of age, professional or socioeconomic background, marriage status, dress or behaviour," said Noora Flinkman of the Egyptian

campaign HarassMap.


Meanwhile, the survey said Iraq was now more dangerous for women than under Saddam Hussein, with women disproportionately affected by the violence of the past decade. Saudi Arabia

ranked poorly on women's involvement in politics, workplace discrimination, freedom of movement and property rights but scored better than many other Arab states when it came to access to education and healthcare, reproductive rights and gender violence.

Film gun violence ‘tripled since 1985’ Levels of gun violence have more than tripled since 1985 in films rated as suitable for teenagers, according to a US study, which found that gun violence in PG-13 films last year actually exceeded that in films rated R for viewers aged

17 and older. Put simply, violence "sells", the authors of the "Gun Violence Trends in Movies" study said.

The authors said that sex scenes were more likely to incur a stricter rating than scenes of

violence, and suggested that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) re-evaluate its rating system in order to better protect young viewers in the future.

Some of the recent PG13 movies that "had a lot

of gun violence", according to the study, included The Dark Knight (2008), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), The Amazing Spiderman (2012) and Taken 2 (2012).

The man said 4,100 Bitcoins were taken in two separate attacks but would not report the theft to police as Bitcoin transactions are virtually impossible to trace. This has led some users to speculate whether it was an "inside job". in a radio interview the man, who only used his online name TradeFortress, denied being involved. He advised people not to store Bitcoins on an internetconnected device, whether it was their own or a service's. The Bitcoin virtual currency is increasingly used to pay for things online and is the most well known of a handful of virtual currencies which can be traded on exchanges or privately between users.

Grotesque protest in Red Square

A performance artist was detained in Moscow on Sunday after stripping naked and nailing his scrotum to the cobblestones of Red Square in a protest. Pyotr Pavlensky, 29, reportedly sat for an hour and a half on the square, with a nail driven through his genitals into the ground.

The St Petersburg performer had faced a custodial sentence of 15 days but was freed on Monday. Pavlensky said his "Fixation" act was a metaphor for apathy in Russia. Timing his act to coincide with Police Day, Pavlensky said in a statement: "When the authorities turn the country into one big prison, openly robbing the populace and channelling funds to increase and enrich the police and other security agencies, society accepts arbitrariness and, having forgotten its advantage in numbers, brings the triumph of the police state closer through its inaction." kenyA

Somali refugees to be repatriated

More than 500,000 Somali refugees in kenya are to be given the opportunity to return home after the Un refugee agency (UnHCR) signed a tripartite agreement with the two countries' governments. Under the agreement, the Somalis will be repatriated voluntarily over the next three years. Two of the camps they live in, Dadaab and kakuma, are now so large they are more like towns. There is also a suburb of the capital, nairobi – eastleigh – that is known as "Little Mogadishu" because so many Somalis live there. The main problem with the agreement is that most of the refugees know that Somalia is still not safe and probably would not want to return. kenya has been concerned about further threats of terrorism since September’s attack by suspected Somali militants on nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall.

Bank of America to pay $864m The US government has said it is seeking $864 million in compensation from Bank of America for losses over home loans sold to it by the bank's Countrywide Financial unit. The bank was found liable for defrauding two US state-backed mortgage companies by a federal jury last month. The ruling was a major win for the US government, which launched the case in the wake of the financial crisis. Reports last month suggested that US banking giant JP Morgan is set for a record $13bn fine to settle investigations into its mortgage-backed securities. And Wells Fargo agreed to pay $335m to settle claims it misled investors over mortgage-backed bonds. The US Department of Justice is investigating at least nine banks over their sales of mortgagebacked securities.

Venezuela to expand price controls President Nicolas Maduro said on Monday that he wanted to set legal limits on businesses' profit margins and plans to extend price controls to all consumer goods, if he is given powers to govern by decree. His announcement followed the seizure on Saturday of shops accused of selling electronic goods at inflated prices.

In a speech on Friday night, Maduro promised to sell off Daka's stock of plasma televisions, washing machines and other merchandise. "We're doing this for the good of the nation. Leave nothing on the shelves, nothing in the warehouses!" he said. Bargain hunters were quick to join overnight queues to buy the merchandise, some of it at a quarter of the price listed earlier in the week. Maduro said that government inspectors had found goods that were overpriced by as much as 1,000%. State shops buy

dollars to pay for imported goods at the official rate of around 6.3 bolivars per dollar. But private importers often complain official dollars are not readily available and that they must buy dollars on the black market at rates about seven times higher.

Critics of Maduro's government say economic mismanagement, rather than unscrupulous retailers, is responsible for inflation – now running at around 54 per cent – and

shortages of basic goods such as milk and toilet paper. With municipal elections due across Venezuela on 8th December, recent opinion polls have shown the president's ratings have declined by about 10% in recent months. Opposition leader Henrique Capriles – who was narrowly defeated by Maduro in presidential elections last April – wants next month's vote to become a quasi-referendum on the president.

Sectarian strife the worst threat in world Sectarian tension between Shia and Sunni Muslims is probably the most serious threat to world security, according to Iran's foreign minister, Mohamed Javad Zarif, who blamed some Sunni countries for what he called "fear-mongering". "Some people have fanned the animosity for short-sighted political interests," he said. Syria, Iraq and Pakistan are

among the countries currently grappling with a surge in sectarian violence. Mr Zarif said conflict between Sunnis and Shias was "the most serious security threat not only to the region but to the world at large". However Saudi Arabia, among other countries, accuse Iran of stirring up sectarian tension. Both sides recognise the dangers of what is

happening, but neither has come up with a way of stopping a deadly slide towards more religious conflict.

Sectarian tension between Shia and Sunni Muslims has been a fact of life for more than 1,000 years, but upheaval in the Middle East this century, especially since the USled invasion of Iraq in 2003, which had made it much worse.

Clashes mar Warsaw march Polish police fired rubber bullets and tear gas to break up violent clashes during an independence day march in the capital Warsaw on Monday.

A number of protesters and at least four police officers were injured during the annual rally organised by far-right and nationalist movements. The violence started when

groups of youths broke off from the main march to attack a squat and set fires to cars. They also set ablaze a rainbow-coloured arch symbolising tolerance, and tried to attack the Russian embassy.

The annual rally commemorates the day Poland regained its independence at the end of

Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has said his Government will clamp down on the payday loan industry in Britain if his party are elected at the next General Election. The loan companies charge high interest rates and have profited from the economic downturn. He feels they prey on the vulnerable leaving households with debts they are unable to pay off and wants a ban on television advertising that uses child-friendly

animated commercials to promote loans. Martin Lewis, the founder of online, went a step further and told a House of Commons Committee that such commercials amounted to ‘grooming’. There are calls for the Advertising Standards Authority to draw up a code of conduct to regulate advertising in the same way that gambling and alcohol is regulated.

British Home Stores has been a big name on the high street for many years with 180 stores and annual sales now at £700 million, but there are reports that Sir Philip Green could consider selling the chain. Sir Philip has owned BHS for 14 years. He also

The absence of Foreign Secretary William Hague was a timely reminder of the constant effort to find lasting peaceful solutions to the world’s problems – he was returning from talks on Iran in Geneva. Over 10,000 veterans and civilians filed past the Cenotaph to pay their respects.

Potter author casts her spell

Harry Potter author JK Rowling wove her magic once more when she hosted a dinner which raised £1 million to help end the institutionalisation of children in orphanages worldwide. The dinner for her charity, Lumos, was organised at the Harry Potter film set near Watford in Hertfordshire. The author set up the charity eight years ago. It has helped take almost 12,000 children out of institutions and helped prevent the deaths of many children who were not receiving the care they needed.


Recognition British Prime Minister David Cameron has been given a special recognition award at the Sikh Awards at the Hilton in London’s Park Lane. Mr Cameron, who received his award for his work with the Sikh community in India, described the award as a “tremendous honour”. He was the first serving British Prime Minister to pay his respects at the Golden Temple in India and laid a wreath and signed a book of condolences at the memorial site in the Punjab. He also marked the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi. The Sikh Awards were founded by Mr Navdeep Singh to recognise and honour the potential of the Sikh community in the UK.


Page 3 to stay

The Sun newspaper, a rather bright and breezy downmarket tabloid that is known for its Page 3 pictures of topless girls, is to keep its controversial pinups in spite of opposition, and new Editor David Dinsmore has confirmed the paper’s editorial policy. The pictures have long been opposed by women’s groups and came in for criticism during a debate on sexism in the media. But Mr Dinsmore is unrepentant: “I think there are much bigger issues in the world,” he told BBC Radio 5. “Frankly if Page 3 is the root of all evil, we’re coming at it from the wrong place.”

Athlete burgled Death crash Olympic athlete Andy Turner, 33, has appealed for help on Twitter after his family home was burgled as he attended his mother's funeral. He tweeted on Thursday evening: "Please help, my mum's funeral today, whilst at the function, we were burgled and everything was stolen including my car, laptop, phone plus loads of other stuff. Can't believe these people could do this on a day like today, please help catch them. Please RT this and get these people caught. This happened in Hucknall in Nottingham around 8pm tonight, please help if u see a White Range Rover Sport or Mac please phone the police." Turner, who has competed in two Olympic Games, said he was "absolutely devastated" by the break-in. He was

staying with his family at his mother's house on the eve of her funeral. He told Sky News: "They targeted my old room where I used to stay. They took my phone, my laptop and my car. They've ransacked everything. My laptop contains all my photos of my kids and the last pictures of me with my mum when she was alive. My wife and kids are staying in a hotel up the road as they're too scared to be here tonight. It's an unmistakeable car, a white Range Rover sport with a body kit and personalised number plates that look like 110 RUN." Turner's 58-year-old mother died suddenly on October 29th. On the day of her death, Turner had tweeted: "The worst possible end to the worst 8 days of my life."

driver in court A 20-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the manslaughter of two teenage girls who died after they were hit by a car.

Samuel Etherington, 20, an unemployed sports and football coach from Stoners Close, Gosport, Hampshire, was in tears as the details of the crash were described which left two teenage girls, Jasmine Allsop, 14 and Olivia Lewry, 16 (pictured above right), dead after being hit by a car he was driving. He was remanded in custody by Portsmouth magistrates and is due to appear at Winchester Crown Court on Friday. Jasmine's mother, Rosemary, has described how she kissed her daughter goodbye after she was awoken by the emergency

services attending the accident which happened outside her home. Ms Allsop, 37, said she had enjoyed a night in with the two girls before the accident. She said: "I went out and then a neighbour covered me in a blanket. I kissed her – it was four hours before they took her body away because I did not want to let her go. I told her she was my angel and I'd loved her since the day she was born. I can remember her big blue eyes staring."

The housewife, who is also the mother of a fouryear-old, said the death left her numb: "I'm empty inside and lost. I keep expecting her to come through the door. Jasmine was a gorgeous, lovely, bubbly character. They (Jasmine and Olivia) were best friends."

Nissan make waves about the UK and any EU exit Japanese car giant Nissan has said that they would “reconsider” their position in the UK if Britain pulls out of the EU. Nissan, the UK’s biggest carmaker, currently employs 6,500 workers at its Sunderland plant, where it has invested billions of pounds and where many of its key models are built – most going to EU markets

Speaking at the launch of their new Qashqai, Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn (pictured) warned that Britain’s withdrawal could have a major impact on the company’s future

investment here.

Asked about the prospect of Britain leaving the EU, Mr Ghosn told the BBC: "Obviously it's going to be a major factor happening and we are going to need to consider what does it mean for us for the future. I'm not worried about Sunderland. Sunderland is a very competitive plant, it's a very productive plant and it's a European plant based in the UK. If anything has to change, we need to reconsider our strategy and our investments for the future."

Gibraltarians tired of tobacco smugglers


TV Going Off - Don't Panic

Despite increased efforts by the Police and Customs to rein in smuggling, the economic crisis across the border is forcing more and more Spaniards to smuggle cigarettes as a way of putting food on the table for their families. According to an article in the online Gibraltar paper, Panorama, cigarette smuggling is now a major concern for many residents, who feel that not only has smuggling increased but is practically out of control. In the past, most of the smuggling was done by sea but now it's being done by foot, car and motorbike across the border. According to the report, smugglers go to

quiet residential areas after buying the goods to conceal them around their person or vehicles.

The paper said it was not uncommon to see

women undress and stuff packets of cigarettes down their underwear. One man told the Panorama reporter that “our quality of life is being

affected, they have no respect for decency or the law". He said his road had been "converted into a den of Spanish cars and people, where cars are literally dismantled in open view to conceal cigarettes". He said lookouts were placed on corners who whistled when they saw the police or customs men approaching.

Another problem is the litter – discarded cigarette cartons being strewn everywhere – which is affecting the quality of life. Many Gibraltarians are now asking for new regulations, because they consider the 1997 Tobacco Act to be too ambiguous, and a smuggling enforcement body to back up the police and customs men.

There is a mountain of talk, speculation and rumour about British telly and indeed it is 99.99% certain that on the Costa del Sol the British National TV broadcasts are about to go – although seeing is believing, or rather in this case not seeing will be conclusive.

There are several internet options already available but for the lucky few in the Fuengirola area the solution to the impending social crisis could literally be just outside their window in the form of an inconspicuous little cable. The cable carries the best of British TV, including BBC, Channel 4 and 5 etc, as well as sports, movies, news, documentaries, music, children’s TV. Plus many European channels in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Dutch and German, all rather “wunderbar”.

There are in fact two networks. The Eurocable network which covers over 90% of Fuengirola and Los Boliches and the On Cable network which supplies large parts of the

As well as telly there is also a true speed Internet connection available in the same cable. The joy of cable is that it requires no dish, no antenna, no phone, phone line or viewing card. One connection and you're on. After a one-off connection fee, the monthly, quarterly or annual packages for TV and/ or Internet Wi-fi are economical and very flexible.

An added feature for the network in Los Boliches allows tourists, letting agents and holiday apartment owners etc to enjoy a “short-stay” connection for just a week or a couple of weeks. This is understandably very popular, extensive British and European TV with fast secure internet whilst on holiday. No contract needed just pay-as-you-go with a free short-stay connection, that's usually managed within the hour.

Every year, the Junta de Andalucia includes a report on women in its annual budget proposals in an attempt to measure their impact on the economy.

The report shows that girls get higher marks at school and women are better trained but they still earn less than men. Another fact emerging from the report is that only 157 municipalities have women mayors, while the men rule in the remaining 614. Given their better performance

at school, more girls enrol for university than boys – 54.8 per cent and 45.2 per cent respectively – and predominate in all courses except engineering and architecture. However, despite their educational superiority, Andalusian women earn around €4,500 less per year than men, a smaller gap than the national average, which is €5,158. On a positive note, the gap narrowed by €313 last year in Andalusia, as opposed to the national

Minors caught without licences

Just under 600 young people were discovered last year for driving without a licence, and most of the fines handed out were for speeding or drunk-driving. in his report on road safety, prosecutor luis rodriguez noted that most of the fines in general were for speeding. He also revealed that when people breathalysed by the police or Guardia Civil come up negative, they are rarely tested for drugs as well. in a new campaign starting in Seville drivers will have to take both tests. The campaign will be extended to the rest of andalusia in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Street plan being updated Mijas council has started to update the town's street map to help make GPS devices more accurate, as well as ensuring that ambulances and the fire brigade get to the right address in the shortest possible time.

Nearly 80 per cent of the town has already been covered and when the revision is completed it will be sent to the Junta de Andalucia, to be entered into the regional street maps it is preparing. The final product will then be sent Google Maps.

Earthquake registered

a quake registering 3.0 on the richter scale was felt in Casares in the early hours of Sunday, but there were no human or material damages. The epicentre was located five kilometres underground to the south east of the town and was also felt in estepona, and San martín del Tesorillo, Jimena and San Pablo de buceite in Cadiz province. a few calls were made to the 112 emergency number but given the low magnitude of the quake it was not thought necessary to send the fire brigade or other emergency services.


Guided tours for German tourists

mayor Paloma García Gálvez and the councillor in charge of tourism, adolfo Fernández, reached an agreement with the German travel agency at the World Travel market in london to have the town included in the agency's excursion pamphlet to be published next year. The agency, which operates throughout northern Germany, will advertise weekly guided tours which will include the old town, the Stupa, a ride on the cable car to monte Calamorro and walks along the trails up there, as well as a visit to the marina where the tourists can take the catamaran to malaga. a German-speaking guide will accompany each group consisting of 30 to 50 tourists. The mayor said the guided tours will be held all year, except for July and august.

The Local Memo from Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

Thick as two short planks


he Socialist Party has just handed the next general election to the Partido Popular on a plate. The upshot of its political conference last weekend was, as spokeswoman Maria Gonzalez put it, "We're redder, more purple and greener" – red being the colour of the Left, purple being the colour of one of the bands in the Republican flag and green as in the Greens.


s the daily newspaper La Razon put it – the Socialists have just given the political centre to the PP. They still haven't realised that they lost the last election because Zapatero ignored the economy and allowed the more extreme Socialist ideology to take over. Yet despite their insistence on "equality", women still earn less than men for the same work and are always the first to be sacked when times get hard. The Socialists had seven and a half years to put that right but they were too scared of the bosses to do anything about it.


hey did everything possible to get the Church out of the state schools but didn't give any thought to the quality of the education being imparted there. Now, according to one of the country's most respected left-wing philosophers and writers, Fernando Savater, there are people who profess to be very concerned about this government's education reforms "but all they want to do is get rid of Education Minister José Ignacio Wert and once they've done that they'll forget all about the education they say they care so much about".


uring the conference, the most applauded proposal was to break with the Vatican by tearing up the concordat of 1979, which gave the Catholic Church tax breaks and a big say over the teaching of religion in state schools. Zapatero banned religious instruction from state schools but the PP are bringing it back. Now the Socialists have vowed to undo all that when they get back into power. They simply cannot get it into their heads that people will continue to believe in God and the more you attack the Church, the more sympathy you may arouse for it.


hen we have the funniest moment of all – when the party hierarchy refused to back a referendum on the monarchy versus a Republic. Party spokesman Ramón Jáuregui was booed when he told the delegates that the Socialist soul is Republican but that the party "believes that the constitutional consensus on the subject of the monarchy should be maintained. An alternative agreement


is not possible in our current social panorama." Just how bipolar can a political party get!

he problem is that the Socialists are trying to be more left-wing than the Communist-dominated United Left (Izquierda Unida, IU) because they are under the mistaken impression that it was the IU's ideology – anti-monarchy, prorepublican, anti-religion – which won it so many votes in the last general election. However, the IU is a bit of a yo-yo when it comes to elections. The more left-wing Socialists who were unhappy with their party's policies when in power voted IU rather than PP in 2008, of course. But when they want to get the PP out of power they vote for the Socialists, as they did in 2004. It's known as the "useful vote", and IU Commissar Cayo Lara is already acutely aware that this will probably happen in 2015 – if the Socialist Party still exists by then. Assuming that it will, more moderate Socialists – who, I suspect, are the majority – will either vote for the Union, Progress and Democracy party (UP&D) whose leader is a former Socialist, or even the PP, if it continues to conquer the middle ground.


ormer Defence Minister and Speaker José Bono said in a radio interview during last weekend's conference that it made more sense for the Socialist Party to form a pact with the PP rather than the IU. What sacrilege! Former Socialist PM Felipe Gonzalez confessed at a meeting in Malaga on Monday that he is a moderate. More sacrilege! But this is the man who extirpated all Marxist jargon from the Socialist manifesto back in 1980, knowing that it was the only way the party would win an election – which it did quite resoundingly in 1982. Gonzalez's moderation kept him in power for the next 14 years.


Felipe Gonzalez

eing as thick as two short planks, I fear that today's Socialists will never learn – which is good news for us middle of the roaders.

Messy Madrid Writes for the English language version of


s the garbage strike in Madrid enters its second week, the unions and the private companies hired by the city just can't seem to clean up their acts. Neither side is budging in the unions’ demands to head off planned reductions in the workforce. Meanwhile mountains of garbage at street bins, littered parks, and slews of tin cans and empty crisp bags continue to contaminate the streets of the capital. It could be worse, this could have happened over the summer when the stench would have been unbearable, one neighbour told me. But there are nasty odours at many street corners and busy pedestrian walkways. Ana Botella, the Partido Popular (PP) mayor, said that this is a conflict between the private contractors and the unions and has refused to step in despite calls from business owners and officials to end the mess. Last week, a friend from California was here for a 10-day visit and he was shocked to see how dirty Madrid had become since his last trip here in 1992. I had to explain to him that we were in the middle of a strike by garbage collectors and street cleaners. Still, he was just as surprised that madridleños cannot take matters in their own hands for now and put some special effort in keeping their surroundings tidy knowing that the trash man won't be around for a few days.


hree of the four private contractors OHL, Valoriza and FCC want to reduce their 6,000strong workforce by cutting 1,134 jobs, something that the UGT, CCOO and CGT unions say is unacceptable. The fourth contractor Cepsa has no plans on layoffs. In their latest offer, the contractors agreed to reduce the number of planned layoffs by half, offering instead to make redundant some 625 people. No agreement was reached on Monday during the last negotiations. A demonstration is planned for Sunday.


arbage strikes in any major city are dirty tricks aimed at residents and businesses who really don't have any say either way in how much sanitation workers should be paid or where cutbacks must be made. It is a terrible inconvenience, more than people should have to bear but then again residents should take their own responsibilities to adapt to an emergency situation for the benefit of all. Maybe overflowing trash bins are unavoidable but there is no reason for people to be throwing trash on the streets or littering the parks and

playgrounds with crisp bags and soft drink and beer cans. At the same time, the government should take immediate action and call out emergency work crews to begin cleaning up the streets. Yes, this would no doubt provoke conflict between strikers and the temporary sanitation squads but there is no doubt which side residents and business owners would support.


New strategy

he pro-independence parties in Catalonia are banking on a new legal strategy to force Parliament to approve their campaign to hold a status referendum next year. They want to use an ambiguous clause in the Spanish Constitution that allows the central government to transfer powers to the regions in certain circumstances to convince lawmakers to allow the regional parliament to convoke the popular vote on the matter in 2014. Premier Artur Mas and his Catalan nationalist CiU bloc, buoyed by the Republican Left (ERC) and the ICV green parties, hope this fresh move will break the stalemate that exists between Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s PP administration and his regional government over presenting the independence question at the ballot box. Rajoy has refused to go along with the status vote without the approval of Parliament because he maintains it is illegal. Now, the CiU wants to present a resolution by next month using in its argument the Constitution as its legal backbone. No doubt this latest game plan will founder because the PP – with the majority in Parliament – and the Socialists have come out against Mas’ new scheme.

Community News TAPAS say goodbye to Elaine Paterson

One of our most proactive members, Elaine Paterson, will shortly be leaving us to move to the USA. Elaine has been a TAPAS member for just two years but in that time has managed to pack in an awful lot. She initially joined the choir and was gradually tempted into trying the drama group. Perhaps her most influential role has been that of Events Coordinator on the TAPAS committee. Elaine set about her role with a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm and was responsible for organising many great

events. Although her husband, Mike wasn’t always in Spain, when he was here he supported Elaine in many TAPAS events. Mike’s job has meant that he and Elaine will move to Houston, Texas on the 1st December. Elaine will be missed by many and remembered as an enthusiastic, energetic TAPAS member but most of all as a friend. We wish Mike and Elaine all the luck in the world in their new venture. We’ll miss you! written by TAPAS

Sunday’s Remembrance Service at St. George’s Malaga Once again, St. George´s English Church in Malaga was full to overflowing for the Annual Service of Remembrance, when we remember the fallen of the many conflicts in which British and British Commonwealth members fought.

The service was conducted by The Reverend Patrick Springford, Chaplain of the church.

Following the service, there was a parade in the English Cemetery and with the RAFA Standard raised, a march to the Commonwealth War Graves, where the Chaplain conducted the Act of Remembrance. There were several readings by RBL, RNA

and RAFA representatives, and, following the two-minute silence, wreaths were laid on the War Graves by Charmaine Arbouin, the new British Consul (Malaga), Flt.Lt. Estevan Samanes of the Royal Australian Air Force (from Madrid) on behalf of the Australian people, and representatives of the Royal Navy, the Royal Naval Association, the Royal British Legion district and local branches, the Royal Air Forces Association, and the RAOB (Pedro Groves).

Following the wreath laying, attendees were invited to plant their personal poppies on the graves. The wreaths and poppies will remain in place for a couple of weeks

if anyone would like to see them.

All were then invited to take "tapas" and wine with the Costa del Sol RAFA Branch, who had organised and coordinated the entire event for the 12th year running. Donations were requested for the tapas, and all proceeds are divided

between the Church and the English Cemetery.

Thanks to all who attended and paid their respects to the fallen. "We Will Remember Them"

Can you give anything to help the Philippines? Mr. Ron Nolan has set up a scheme to send goods that are desperately needed by the people of the Philippines who have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan. He has arranged with a carrier company, LBC, based in Barcelona and Madrid but who have an agent in Marbella who is arranging everything for them, to send the collected donated goods to the Philippines FREE OF CHARGE!

Ron’s wife is a Philippino and they run a club for senior Philippinos in Sotogrande along the coast here. His wife’s family are still in the Philippines and they have regular contact with the people over there. Everything donated is to go to the Red Cross in Manilla for safe distribution. Ron is looking for anything non-


perishable and the main items required are: canned food (in date), pots, pans, cutlery, plates, blankets, sheets etc

To find out more on what will help the Red Cross help the people in the Philippines, many of whom have lost their homes and everything they owned, contact Ron directly by calling 600 259 140 or email him on

Lee Osborne from the Costa del Sol Astronomy Society who told The News about this appeal says: “I know we all do our bit for our particular charities and times are hard! But we are all very privileged people in comparison to those in the affected area of the Philippines.”

For three nights The International Club of Estepona Theatre Players presented their Autumn production to an appreciative audience of members and guests. The theme was an original production entitled Old Bull 'n' Bush, written and produced by club member Yvonne Harrison, who also took part. The production was based on old time music hall with audience participation and included a pie and pint at the interval. For more information visit website

Intrigued? Well, every year the Mother’s Union from St. Andrew’s Chaplaincy get involved with filling shoeboxes with goodies for Christmas that are sent to children in need all over the world. The main organising body is called “Operacion Niño de la Navidad” in conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse.

What is needed now is the goodies to fill the boxes and sponsorship for the Angel Bears, the money for which goes towards the transportation of the boxes. For €5 you can sponsor one of these bears and name him/her. He or she will then be placed in the box with a label on him telling the child that is lucky enough to receive the bear what their name is – a bit like Paddington Bear!

OUT & ABOUT Pure Tango first in Estepona Read your favourite news, plus a whole lot more in

“Puro Tango” (Pure Tango) is a spectacle that contains all the expressions of the Argentine tango – a dance by two of the best dance couples in the international tango scene; the voice and poetry interpreted by the great singer from Buenos Aires Martín Gatica; and the music interpreted by

The choreographies exclusively created for this spectacle, are extremely

sensual. It expresses a full feeling of sensuality but not of sexuality. Not only the great technique of the dancers but their expressiveness is important. Everything is joined – looks, arms, hands, every movement of the body accompanying the cadence of the tango and transmitted through what they are living: a

three minutes’ romance.

Every year, about this time, the members of the Ark Christian Fellowship start planning two of the biggest events in their calendar, and in the diaries of many Costa residents – The Ark Christmas Fayre, and the The Ark Christmas Carol Service.

Over the years both have become firm favourites with locals, and even if these are the only times they visit the Ark each year, they are welcomed with open arms. These are days of fun for 'Arkies' (after all the hard work that goes into arranging them is finished) and a great opportunity for visitors to meet the Ark members, as well as an opportunity for folk to pick up a bargain, a favourite Christmas treat or present that will fit somebody’s perfect gift criteria. With the White Elephant stall, Silent Auction, face painting for the kids, heaps of cakes to eat or take away, some of

Traditional Fish and Chips of the finest quality Crispy Cod celebrates five successful years delivering the best British Fish & Chips on the coast. If you are looking for true British-style fish and chips then look no further than the Crispy Cod in Fuengirola. Established 13 years ago, in 2000, the Crispy Cod – formally known as Joey's – is the longest surviving fish and chip shop on the coast.

The present owner Sean took over the business some five years ago, in the autumn of 2008. Since then he has set about turning it into the number-one destination on the Costa del Sol for true British-style Fish and Chips. Five years later he has achieved this goal and is looking forward to many more successful years.

All the food served at the Crispy Cod is of the finest quality; sustainable, line-caught fish prepared in the traditional way and filleted on the premises; potatoes peeled and freshly chipped daily; batter made from scratch to Sean’s own secret recipe; and his homemade mushy peas and tartar sauce have an ever-growing fan club. Through Sean's dedication and hard work, coupled with support from his family and staff, he often receives recognition through the local and national media for the quality of his product.


He was most recently featured on Fuengirola TV as part of an Expats Abroad article on the BBC news website, and in 2011 Crispy Cod was recommended by 'Skyscanner' as one of the Top Five Places Around The World to sample Fish and Chips. So if you are on holiday or live on the Costa del Sol and miss the firm British favourite of Fish and Chips give the Crispy Cod a try. Serving both take away and sit down meals, you can be assured you will not find better. The Crispy Cod can be found on the Paseo Maritimo in Fuengirola, located directly in front of the Hotel Piramedes. For table reservations or take-away orders please telephone 952 587 351, or visit Open seven days per week between 1pm and 10.30pm.

You are literally buzzing this week, awake, alert and aware of all that is going on around you. As you are so hyped up it would be wise to also remain aware of the effect you are having on others, in other words check that you do not impulsively say things you may regret later. This is a super social party time when you ooze confidence and charisma making you the life and soul. There are many factors to take into consideration this week and most of it is in the hands of others and beyond your ability to control. You still need to remain focused at the moment even though there is no way of speeding things up, however, negotiations may play a part still. Home life is now extremely important to you and others may need your support and advice.

April 20th May 20th


There is a lot going on at home when you will want to use this time to straighten things out and get back on track again. Those skills that have not been used for a while will surface making you feel like you have been reborn, you will be amazed at how quickly you re-remember. You can do more with less effort. Everything is starting to speed up especially now that you know the direction you need to advance in.

May 21st June 21st


It may be difficult to concentrate this week and you could find it takes a lot of effort to get things moving. It seems that regardless of what you do or how much work and effort you put in, that others will expect even more from you. Every cloud has a silver lining though and there will be developments and options for you to choose from in the near future.

Venturing out in new directions is the flavour of the week; there are signs and indications that personal success is yours to claim once you embrace the unknown. What you sow you reap even if you do not see instant results – things just seem to work out in your favour. Do not be too frivolous with money right now as there could be an impulse to spend what you cannot afford.

On the surface it appears that everything seems to go wrong this week but just as you think there is no way out, lady luck shines down on you and all slots into place. In fact you may attract jealousy and envy from others at your current good fortune. There could be a new job on the horizon or if you are self employed your reputation will flourish attracting more business your way.

There are things that need to be dealt with that you could have been putting off, now is the time to close one door and allow another to open. Verify all the facts, figures and promises of the past and make those serious decisions you have been weighing up. Pay close attention to what is going on around you as much information is likely to be uncovered.

Your blood could boil from time to time this week, so continue to count to 10 and allow yourself time to simmer down. This is all about handling your stress in a more productive way. Your challenge here is to hold the line and not get too carried away as everyone is looking in your direction trying to figure out what you are going to do next. Whatever you do though indicates positive results and success.

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

Vegetable dhansak – a simple curry with bags of taste (don't be put off by the long ingredients list!). We tried it on Saturday evening and it was so delicious we made it again on Monday.

Vegetable dhansak Ingredients:

• 2 tbsp oil • 100g lentils • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped • 2 cloves garlic, crushed • 1 tbsp ginger, peeled & grated • 1 or 2 green chillies • 2 tsp curry paste • 1 carrot, peeled and diced • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into small cubes • 1 red pepper, seeded & diced • 1/4 tsp turmeric • 1/2 tsp ground cumin • 1/2 tsp ground coriander

(Serves 2)

• 1 tsp garam masala • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper • 500ml vegetable stock • 1 tbsp tomato puree • 2 large tomatoes, chopped into small pieces • 100g green beans, cut to about 2”

Directions 1. Put the lentils in a bowl and allow to soak in cold water for about 3 minutes and then drain. 2. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onion, chilli, garlic, and ginger until the onion softens. 3. Add the carrot, sweet potato and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes. 4. Add curry paste, the turmeric, cumin, ground coriander and black pepper and cook for another minute.

5. Stir in the lentils, stock, tomato puree and tomatoes and then cover with a lid and simmer for around 15-20 minutes. 6. Add the sliced and cut green beans and garam masala and allow to cook for another 10 minutes without the lid. Scatter with coriander, and serve with flat bread or naan bread



SPANISH By Valerie Mitchell

Two weeks we looked at various uses of the verb Poder - to be able and today we are going to do the same with a verb which some people confuse with Poder which is Poner. The main meaning of Poner is to put and it has a small irregularity which is worth noticing. I put is Pongo. The other parts of the verb behave fairly normally. Pongo el coche en el garage - I put the car in the garage. Pongo azucár en el café - I put sugar in my coffee.

Romance intensifies and you will feel compelled to go the distance, if you are single you could meet someone new and find that you just ‘click’ with this person. If in a relationship then the sky is the limit and pulling together you will find that you can achieve long term gains. It may not necessarily be easy as there could be some initial tension to work through but reassurance will tip the scales in your direction.

Poner can also mean to lay. Poner la mesa - to lay the table. Juan pone la mesa cada tarde - Juan lays the table every evening Poner huevos - to lay eggs. Cada una de mis gallinas pone un huevo cada día - My chickens lay an egg each every day.

Major changes could be occurring in your domestic set up, whether it is renovations or moving, or getting things prepared for some occasion, there is a lot of daily work going on. Socially your home could become popular with an increase in visitors; the acquaintances that you meet now could benefit your plans for the future.

You will often hear "poner" being used in bars or restaurants : ¿Qué le pongo? What can I get you? Pongame un café americano - I'll have a weak black coffee. ¿Cuántos le pongo? How many would you like? Pongame cuatro - I'll have four.

The emotional readjustments have left you feeling in far more control of your reactions and you will be finding a balance between your work and home life. Relationship challenges may have to be dealt with but there will be rewards once a confrontation has taken place. Perhaps you are both saying the same thing really but communication has caused misunderstandings.

There is so much that needs to be done particularly to do with home and family that it can get overwhelming. You could be redecorating your house or putting in place a financial budget for the future. Find simple ways to give yourself space this week, treat yourself with the same kindness you show others. Any problems are likely to work themselves out with time.

Poner is also used for putting on clothes. Me pongo la chaqueta azul - I'm putting on my blue jacket. Se pone los zapatos negros - He's putting his the black shoes

Ponerse al corriente - To be brought up to date with things Me gusta ponerme al corriente de lo que pasa en el pueblo - I like to keep up to date with what's going on in the village. (Make sure to avoid anyone who admits to such a liking for gossip!)

And if you have the bad luck to be caught parking in the wrong place or speeding : Me pusieron una multa - They gave me a fine Le pusieron una multa - He got a fine. Worth remembering that usually if you can pay it within 14 days you "only" have to pay half the amount.

And on that happy note, ya está - that's it. Hasta la próxima. Valerie Valerie runs the Centro Idiomas Language School in Coin.

Ask Calvin and Sue: Hair & Beauty Dear Sue,

What is the difference between a moisturiser and a skin serum? Gillian, Mijas Dear Gillian,

Serums have become hugely popular in the fight against visible signs of ageing. A serum generally has a higher water content and provides an accelerated treatment that targets specific problem areas. Serums deposit intense nutrients and assist skin hydration, while moisturisers provide nutrients and form a moisture-loss barrier.

Moisturisers are daily treatments – serums can be used as a seasonal boost

or to add radiance to the complexion. Serums have higher levels of essential ingredients so they can deliver impressive results more quickly.

That doesn't mean you can ditch your usual moisturiser – the idea is to use two products together for the greatest benefits. Always allow the serum to be absorbed properly before applying the moisturiser on the top. Dear Sue,

Dear Penny,

Dry, rough skin on elbows, knees and heels is a sign of disruption in the skin's natural renewal process. Harsh weather conditions, indoor heating/air conditioning, friction against clothing and shoes, even your genetics all add to the problem. Apply a gentle body exfoliator every couple of days and use a rich moisturising cream or oil twice a day to soften dry, calloused skin. The combination of exfoliation and moisturising will help to soften the skin. Dear Calvin,

My hair has suddenly

got very static. Why is this? Kym, Coin

Dear Kym,

Even though we are still enjoying warmth here during the day, in the mornings and at night there is a noticeable drop in temperature. These conditions mean that the atmosphere is creating more electricity and more electrical charge equals static hair for some people.

Most of us think that when summer is over our hair will recover from the sun, but often it can be a bigger problem in the winter months. Heat in your hair can still have an effect as often it is a dry

Scan predicts heart attack risk A new way of scanning the heart can identify those who may be at high risk of a heart attack, early tests by researchers at the University of Edinburgh scientists suggest. It can identify dangerous plaques in the arteries which nourish the heart. If a fatty plaque ruptures, it can lead to a clot, blocking the flow of blood.

The researchers said an effective tool for predicting a heart attack would make a "massive difference" to patients. The first tests of the technique for danger spots in the heart were on 40 patients who had recently had a heart attack. The scan highlighted the plaque which caused the heart attack in 37 of the patients, the researchers said, adding that it is the first time a scan has been

able to identify danger zones but further tests are needed to see if detecting dangerous plaques before, rather than after, a heart attack has the potential to save lives. A spokesman for the British Heart Foundation said: "This research suggests that PET-CT scanning may provide an answer – identifying 'ticking time bomb' patients at risk of a heart attack. "We now need to confirm these findings, and then understand how best to use new tests like this in the clinic to benefit heart patients."

More than 100,000 people have a heart attack in the UK each year and disease of the arteries around the heart is the leading cause of death in the world.

heat. Wearing woollen hats can cause static as the wool conducts electricity, which is why when the hat comes off the hair flies everywhere.

Moisture is the key to combating static – such as a good serum. Hairspray sprayed on your brush before you brush through also works well. Dear Calvin,

Is it important to use a heat protective styling and finishing product when I dry and straighten my hair. Louise, Mijas Costa Dear Louise,

Yes it is very important to use these products, hand dryers reach

temperatures of 180 centigrade and ceramic straighteners even higher at 220-230c. Hair cannot take these temperatures on a regular basis without breaking down and becoming dry and brittle.

We use sun protection for our skin to stop burning and hair is no different to this and should be treated with the same care.

Lung cancer cases soar in smoggy Beijing

The number of lung cancer cases in the Chinese capital Beijing has soared over the last decade. According to figures published by the state-run Xinhua news agency, they have increased by more than 50%. Xinhua said the latest figures – which are for only one city and one disease – were issued by Beijing municipal health bureau. They show the number of lung cancer patients per 100,000 people was 39.56 in 2002, but had jumped to 63.09 by 2011. The article gave no reason for the increase in patients. Beijing health officials said lung cancer was linked to lifestyle choices, with smoking still the top cause. But they said passive smoking and air pollution could also be a factor. Foreign correspondents say Chinese


people are becoming increasingly worried about the health problems caused by the thick air pollution that often blankets much of their country, a result of rapid economic expansion coupled with poorly enforced laws designed to protect the environment. Last month the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a scientific report detailing the link between air pollution and a number of different diseases and illness. It estimated that breathing in fine particles contributed to 3.2 million premature deaths a year across the world and killed more than 200,000 from lung cancer. The WHO said more than half of the lung cancer deaths attributable to ambient fine particles were projected to have been in China and other East Asian countries.

John Lewis has topped the ad charts for the last two years for their Christmas campaigns.

The new ahhh factor Christmas advert

… still a bit early maybe to be thinking of Christmas but the new John Lewis ad is fabulous again. Remember last year’s quite brilliant John Lewis christmas advert that showed a Snowman battling his way across mountain ranges, fast running rivers and crowded shopping streets to the tune of “Make Love Your Goal” to deliver a pair of red gloves and a hat to his snowy girlfriend for Christmas that had everyone shedding a tear or two? Well, they have apparently done it again with their new ad campaign featuring a Hare and a Bear. Hare wants Bear to have the best Christmas ever before he goes off to hibernate for the winter in their new £7 million campaign. Debuted last week during the first X Factor break the two-minute ad featuring Lily Allen singing a cover of Keane’s 2004 Somewhere Only We Know took up the whole of the advertising slot for the first time ever – something Simon Cowell had to sign off for it to be allowed. John Lewis marketing director Craig Inglis said: "We wanted our advert to reflect the importance of finding the right gift for friends and loved ones, a theme which we have built on for a number of years. Through the use of hand-crafted animation, we're hoping to evoke nostalgia and build anticipation ahead of Christmas."

Last year’s ad contributed to an overall year-on-year sales increase for John Lewis of 44.3% in the five weeks to Christmas. But it was not as popular as 2011's The Long Wait, which showed a boy counting down the days to Christmas so that he could give his parents a present. The 2011 campaign's total views on YouTube to date stand at 5.2 million. If you haven’t yet seen the ad but want to know what it’s about, read on but, if you want to see it first, stop reading NOW! Hare finds a way around the problem of Bear missing Christmas again by gifting the bear an alarm clock – set for 10 minutes to eight, sunrise on Christmas Day – and places it beside him as he sleeps. Featuring the strapline Give someone a Christmas they'll never forget, the ad ends with Bear waking on Christmas morning for the first time and sitting in front of a decorated tree beside Hare. All together now… ahhhh! and this fabulous ad full of the joys of Christmas is sure to send people either flocking to the partnership stores or buying online.

A friend is for life - not just Christmas!

Poms’ demands beyond Shocked into Toys the pale, or should that complaining be bails? As if the Australians don’t give us Brits a hard time anyway, they are having a falling-about-laughing fit at the new dossier of demands for our cricket team. The England Cricket team are the butt of jokes in Australia once again after the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) sent the Aussies an 82-page document that included a 70-page list of “essential” dietary requirements prior to the Ashes tour starting on November 21st in Brisbane – with 194 items of requirement on them plus lists of rules and regulations as to where and when they should be provided! According to the Fairfax and News Ltd press articles, among the dishes were "Piri-Piri Breaded Tofu with Tomato Salsa", a "Quinoa and Cranberry Breakfast Bar", "Mungbean Curry with Spinach", and "Pistachio

and Ginger Biscotti". One of the reports said:"If you thought your three year old was fussy, check out the English cricket team's 82-page list of dietary demands for the upcoming Ashes series," while The Sydney Morning Herald, under a headline "The floppy hat guide to fine dining," said of the England team .... "Cuisine: Modern pretentious. Price: Exorbitant. Loss of dignity. Whine: Constantly". The Herald said the ECB has gone to "unprecedented lengths" to ensure the tourists' dressing-room fare is the match of a top-class restaurant. There are requests for trendy "superfood" ingredients, such as kale and agave syrup, it said, while the Telegraph added acerbically: "Gone are the days of simple egg sandwiches, tea and coffee. Instead the Poms will

spend every one of their lunch breaks dining on meals including soups, salads, hot options, finger food, juices and smoothies, with the menu almost completely different for each day of each Test match ... in a list to rival anything on MasterChef." An extract from the document states: "For any meat used in sandwich fillings please do not use processed meats, only freshly cooked meats will suffice. All fish must be filleted and contain no bones. Please only use low fat mayonnaise and yoghurts." The ECB responded by tweeting a picture of a notice scrawled in felt-tip, apparently in the pavilion at Hobart's Bellerive Oval, telling players that "There is one sandwich pack and one piece muffin per person." "I don't know where they got the 82 pages from..." the tweet said. ECB... get a grip!

Media regulator Ofcom has refused to open an enquiry after a host of complaints were received from viewers about a rape scene shown on Downton Abbey last month. The scene, that was within guidelines about what can and can’t be shown and well after the watershed saw Anna May Bates being raped by a guest’s valet. The normally genteel drama saw 244 complaints to Ofcom following its showing plus many took to social media sites saying they were “shocked” and would “never forgive the writers” for the scene even though a warning was given before the start of the drama. Unfortunately it would appear that viewers do not

want their programmes to stray from what they are used to – in this case with tea being served in porcelain cups with silver spoons in a beautiful drawing room. There have been deaths and mayhem before in Downton, but always, so far, off camera. It seems like the writers have certainly woken their viewers from some nice protected happy dreams about the series. Perhaps it’s a good thing that viewers have shaken from their cotton-wool-wrapped world but, perhaps, it is just nice to watch something genteel once in a while without the worry that you’re going to be shocked enough to make for the complaints department.

After 14 years, the authorities have applied pool rules and have already closed 15 pools in the Mijas area alone.

For many people, rules concerning swimming pools within communities are very bewildering. Laws came into force in 1999 from the Junta De Andalucia. The regulations allow authorities to inspect pools to ensure that the conditions of maintenance and use are fulfilled. Mijas Ayuntamiento appears to be the most zealous in the Costa del Sol in pursuing the 1999 regulations. There are hundreds of pools in local communities. Earlier this year a rigorous campaign started to ensure the regulations were enforced, with the explicit threat that, unless the strictest application of the law is adhered to before 2014, pools will be closed. If the rules are not followed, we shall not only close the pool, but also have to empty it, says Manuel Navarro at Urbanismo Mijas Ayuntamiento. Fifteen pools have been closed in the Mijas area over the past few months, following "serious faults" Navarro claimed in an interview in Diario Sur. Swedes have contacted Svenska Magasinet and described the situation as a "huge problem". Birgit Åslund and Willy Wirström live in Mijas Green, whose community consists of 26 properties

Mijas Green

and, at a cost of more than €40.000, the owners are being forced to rebuild the community pool, install an additional shower and erect a toilet. Access to the pool area has also to be adapted for disabled people.

Birgit lives with Willy in the community which was built in 1989. The community has steps leading down from the main entrance and access to many of the apartments is by internal stairs and as a result not disabled friendly. As far as I know the EU law was passed in 1990 concerning showers and safety regulations and I believe that the Junta de Andalucia refers to this law. Did the EU intend that the law would be applied retrospectively when the community was built in 1989?

However, an appeal against the enforcement of the regulations is planned. I would like to see that most of the communities in the area join in such an appeal. New properties are required to meet the regulations but I feel it cannot be appropriate to apply them all retrospectively. Extensive remodelling with stairs, fences and toilets will be required. Hans Lundström is the president of La Cornisa in Calahonda. La Cornisa has around 15 Swedish families, with the same number of Norwegians and Finns, with many British owners also. Work has started with adjustments to two smaller pools in the community, but there will be requirements for ramps, toilets and other changes to be made around the larger pools. Hans says that there are two different types of permission for building projects – one for

smaller and one for larger projects. He thought it was a simple process, taking around 14 days to obtain. Having commenced the work, the police came and stopped everything. Since February, no work has been carried out and the small pools have been closed and must not be used. La Cornisa needed permission for a larger building project, when the pool area was to be rebuilt to conform to the new law. Hans has now sent around 150 pages to Mijas Town Hall, detailing proposed work. They then asked for more details resulting in the need to engage a lawyer. It has become a never-ending story.

Costs continue to increase. Hans explains that there are 149 owners in the community, with current costs standing at €850 per owner. This is expected to rise to around €1.500, or even more as some owners are in debt. Also a pool guard is required as two of the pools at La Cornisa are larger than 200 square metres, triggering the need for a pool guard. Hans says, because of this, the two larger pools will be reduced in size – an architect has been engaged. More cost! The only alternative would be to employ two pool guards, resulting in a major hike to community fees. La Cornisa was built over 20 years ago and the pool area has not been equipped with toilets as users live close to their homes. Both Birgit and Hans feel strongly that there should be a transition period for older communities in existence before the laws were passed. Everyone in the communities cannot understand why Mijas Town Hall is in such a mad rush to implement the regulations, when nothing was done for many years!

Comment By Ken Campbell

e Leonid Meteor Shower


If you want to see a shooting star then this weekend will probably be your best chance.

meteoroid is a tiny piece of space rock that is happily hanging around in space until it happens to strike the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Then, because it can be travelling up to 100km per second, the friction of the air causes the meteoroid to burn up causing a brief streak of light across the sky lasting only a second or two. s it burns up and streaks across the sky we change its name from a meteoroid to a meteor, shooting star or falling star. Most meteoroids are tiny, around the size of a grain of sand, but if the meteoroid is bigger –perhaps the size of a house brick – then it can create a spectacularly bright fireball as it burns up. If the meteor is big enough to survive the journey through the atmosphere and eventually land on the ground then it is known as a meteorite. t is estimated that over 40 tons of space dust hits the Earth everyday, and if you remember the meteor that struck over Russia in February this year causing widespread damage and injuring 1500 people, some of them can be potentially life threatening. Thankfully, most meteors are quite harmless and if you spend long enough outside on any given night then you are almost guaranteed to see at least one. But at certain times of the year the Earth passes through the remnants of a comet’s tail. The collective grouping of the tiny debris particles can cause a meteor shower and in some cases even a meteor storm. here are several meteor showers throughout the year as the Earth passes through the remnants left behind by various comets. When a meteor shower occurs the meteors appear to radiate from one small area of the sky and so are named after the constellation closest to the radiant point. During mid August the Earth passes through the debris left behind by comet Swift-Tuttle (named after the people who discovered it). The meteor shower appears to radiate from the constellation of Perseus and so we have the Perseid meteor shower. his weekend, late on Saturday 16th and early morning of Sunday 17th November the Earth will pass through the debris field of comet TempleTuttle. The meteors will appear to radiate from the constellation of Leo and so is known as the Leonid meteor shower. n past years the Leonids have produced some very spectacular showers; personally I’ve always found



them to be more productive than the famous Perseid shower. I have even managed to photograph several meteors in one night simply by pointing the camera skyward and keeping the shutter open for 10-15 minutes at a time. nfortunately this year’s shower doesn’t look like its going to be a classic with possibly only 10-20 meteors an hour. Also the peak occurs around the time of the full Moon so the sky will be too bright to see many of the fainter meteors but it’s probably still worth having a peak though. You don’t need any special equipment to see a meteor shower, just lay back on a reclining chair or sun lounger away from any street lights and look up. Try looking toward the North for no better reason other than it’s away from the full moon. atience is the key word here; you can’t just stick your head out of the window in the adverts during the Xfactor and expect to see a meteor. You really need to spend some time watching. It’s a bit like fishing really only a lot more fun! y the way, Mr Horace Parnell Tuttle, the discoverer of the two comets that cause the Perseid and Leonid meteor showers seems to have led a rather exciting life. Born 1837, he was an American astronomer who served during the American civil war. He was involved in many exploits including the blockade of Charleston Harbour. During the war he was allowed to continue his astronomical observations and went on to discover another 13 comets and two asteroids. He died in 1923 aged 86, his gravesite is unmarked and its location in Oakwood Cemetery, North Virginia USA, is unknown. So if you manage to spot a Leonid meteor this weekend, raise your glass to Mr Tuttle.

Marquez seals historic title Newly-crowned MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez has hailed his title success in Valencia as a 'dream come true'. The Repsol Honda prodigy managed things superbly to finish in third behind Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo and team-mate Dani Pedrosa at a packed Circuit Ricardo Tormo, in a tense but thrilling finale.

Outgoing champion Lorenzo used stalling tactics in the first third of the race in an effort to allow the chasing pack to close up to the lead group and challenge Marquez, but the plan ultimately failed and Lorenzo eventually abandoned his strategy and powered clear for his eighth victory of the season. Marquez though rode with maturity beyond his years to claim the final place on the rostrum, clinching the championship by four points to become the youngest ever premier class champion in MotoGP history and the first rookie to achieve the feat since 'King' Kenny Roberts in 1978.

“We are so proud about our first season in MotoGP. It is a dream come true to be champion, earlier than we expected,” said Marquez. “We just say thanks to Honda, my team and all the people that help me. I just want to enjoy this moment. “What I said yesterday was true – I said Jorge would be first, Dani second and me third!” Lorenzo: “Before the weekend I thought my best strategy would be to go away at the front. But then my best engine was broken in qualifying so we had to use a slower engine from earlier in the season,” said the double world champion. “In the warm-up it was not so bad but after the session we had a meeting in my motorhome and decided to go with this strategy. Try to slow down the race from the beginning.” Lorenzo executed the tactic with near perfection, resulting in seven riders being queued up behind him in the early stages.

Marquez was careful to avoid any chance of getting involved in any wheel-towheel business, but Pedrosa had other ideas, and, with nothing to lose took on the task of trying to win his home grand prix. Time and time again Pedrosa took the

Driverless 'pods' to hit Milton Keynes

lead from leader Lorenzo only to be immediately attacked moments later. “I tried to slow down as much as possible, but Dani was very strong and passed me every time,” said Lorenzo. “I tried to pass him again at the next corners. At times it was very risky.”

There was to be no fairytail ending to Cal Crutchlow's final race for the French-based Yamaha Tech 3 team as the British rider fell unhurt on lap 10.

Crutchlow, who has joined the factory Ducati team for 2014, had passed teammate Bradley Smith for sixth place and was in pursuit of the leading group when he touched a kerb and crashed out. “The last race with my Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team didn't really go according to plan,” said Crutchlow, who ended the season in fifth position.

crew chief for the 2014 MotoGP season.

The appointment follows Thursday's shock announcement that Rossi would split from Jeremy Burgess, the Italian's crew chief since his 2000 premierclass debut. Rossi stated that he "needed to make a change and try something different" as he seeks to get on terms with the MotoGP top three of Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa.

Driverless cars will transport people through the streets of a British town in a £1.5 million project aimed at boosting green technology. From 2015 an initial batch of 20 driveroperated "pods", which will be able to carry two people, will be run on designated pathways separated from pedestrians in Milton Keynes.

But by mid-2017 it is planned that 100 fully autonomous vehicles will run on pathways alongside people, using sensors to avoid collisions with obstacles. The system will operate in a similar way to the pods at Heathrow Airport (pictured), which transfer people between Terminal 5 and the Business Parking area.

John Miles, programme director and Arup Consultant, said: "This project has the potential to deliver a truly autonomous low-carbon transport option within the context of a city centre and we're delighted to be using this funding to take the project into the first stages of design."

The scheme was announced by Business Secretary Vince Cable, along with a £75 million fund to produce and test low-carbon engines. They will be the pilot projects of the Advanced Propulsion Centre and will channel £1 billion of investment from Government and industry to fund the development of new technologies over the next 10 years.

“Fun-Days” at Santa Maria Introduced last season, the Captain v President’s Challenge is now an integral part of the Club’s Bowling Calendar and 30 people took part on this occasion.

The President (Murray Johns) conceded first choice of the players to Chris Hussey, the Club’s Acting Captain. Thereafter selections were alternate and, from their 15 players, the team gaptains selected 5 x Triples.

With various shades of blue and red on display, the team colours of the Captain and President respectively, the occasion was extremely

colourful and it was Chris’s Team which held the initiative after the first 6 ends. From ends 7 to 12 the Skips played as Leads with the No.2’s playing as Skip and Leads as No.2 and it was from this point that Murray’s Team moved into the ascendency.

For the final 6 ends, there was a final shuffle of positions with the Leads playing as Skip and Skips as No.2. From this point the Reds further consolidated their position to run out 99-74 winners, a comfortable winning margin to ensure the President retained the Trophy for a further season. Some comfort for the Captain was the performance of Susan Walker, Geoff Hall and Rosemary Wilkes. They were his sole

winning Rink and dropped only 7 ends in running out convincing 2512 winners.

A competition between the Witches and Warlocks is now a feature of the Chris Hussey (Captain) presenting the Club’s Challenge trophy to Murray Johns Halloween Day and Penny celebrations with an 18 end Gerrard game being played, split Larkman won the prize for equally into a normal the Witches’ best winning game, yardstick and Rink.

Wayne’s Weekly Poker Tips 2013 WSOP: Ryan Riess Is The World Champion! ($8,361,570)

A big congratulations to Ryan Riess, the champion of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event! Riess had about 20 million chips less than Jay Farber when the final day and heads-up began, but he played very well and ground Farber down to a short stack early in the match. Although Farber managed to double up and narrow down Riess's lead to a 2-1 margin at one point, he still didn't stand a chance against the 23year-old (the youngest

player at this year's final table) who totally dominated the match. In the final hand, Farber shoved his final 12 million with Qs5s, and Riess called with AhKh. The board ran out jack-high and Riess was crowned the world champion!

Riess wins a pot of over 8,000,000 US dollars making this the biggest pay out for the main event ever. Riess was tipped to win by many pundits as Kevin Pietersen will play in England's final Ashes warm-up match in Australia after recovering from a knee injury. Pietersen needed a cortisone injection after feeling pain in his problematic right knee against Australia A. Pace bowlers Steven Finn, Boyd Rankin and

this young gun has been showing great poker class over the last year. The big question now is will we ever see a champion again from the old school? I do not think so as the game has changed so much over the last decade. The day Chris Moneymaker won the main event the world of poker changed for ever.

If you have any poker questions or would like to add to this column email Chris Tremlett are all included in England's 12man squad to face an Australia Invitational XI in Sydney. James Anderson has been rested, while Jonny Bairstow will deputise for injured wicketkeeper Matt Prior. The four-day match begins at 23:30 GMT today (Wednesday)

El Arabi hat trick seals derby win for Granada Granada 3 - 1 Málaga After last week’s last gasp victory over Betis, Málaga travelled the short journey to Granada looking for another vital three points at a ground where they had never won in the league at the top level. The game started evenly, with Málaga not playing a recognised striker up front.

Portillo tested the Granada keeper early on but the home side began to dominate as Málaga did well to hold on. El Arabi missed for Granada close in the box when it looked easier to score. Tissone shot wide for Málaga but just after half time Granada were in front on 48 minutes, a poor clearance from Angeleri put El-Arabi in the clear, Caballero saved but the ball fell back to El-Arabi

who slotted home.

Málaga suprisingly levelled seven minutes later – Juanmi on for Fabrice fired home from close range to send the 1000 or so travelling Málaga fans wild.

On 59 minutes Granada were in front, more bad defending, this time by Sanchez gave El Arabi the easiest chance to fire home. Málaga's misery was compounded on 77 minutes as a great Granada move gave El Arabi a chance which he finished with aplomb. The game ended in frustration for Málaga and shouts were heard from the Málaga section of 'Schuster Fuera' as Málaga's season fails to inspire. Report by Scott Forbes

Miraflores Bowls Club not scared to have fun on Halloween Day Members at Miraflores Club and their guests made the most of Halloween Day with plenty of fun on the bowls rink dressed in their Halloween costumes. There was great hilarity as one by one the members arrived in their different outfits and scary masks with the usual banter that for some of them it was a great improvement on their usual looks! For Derek Carr it was even more insulting because one or two thought he was wearing a mask when it was his actual face! This was down to some incredible make-up which had been skillfully applied by his friend Sandra!

A fun bowls contest had been arranged by Craig Lewis which consisted of 3 separate games of 6 ends played in triples format. After each game your team played different opponents and the first game was scored in conventional bowls manner whereas to score in the second game only those bowls within a yard of the jack at the finish of each end would count. For the final game there were 6 points available at each end, with the nearest bowl

scoring 3, the second nearest 2 and the third scored 1. But Craig had devised an unusual twist to decide the winner as it wasn’t the team who scored the highest points who won but the team whose points total was nearest the figure that Craig had placed in a sealed envelope. An excellent idea. The bowls format was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and was followed by a very tasty BBQ laid on by Craig and ably

assisted as always by his wife, Sandra. Several hours passed before members began to drift home, having had a very entertaining and enjoyable day, made all the better by superb weather. Thanks were passed on to Craig and Sandra for organising the event and their hard work in making the day so enjoyable

Ferrari's Massa signs for Williams

Williams say signing Brazilian Felipe Massa from Ferrari is proof they are determined to return to winning ways after years of declining form. Williams dominated Formula 1 for much of the 1980s and '90s but have scored only one point this year. Deputy team principal Claire Williams said: "We've done a lot of work this year in order to turn this team around and we want to tell the world that. "Williams are not satisfied with coming ninth in the championship."

Djokovic beats Nadal to win World Tour Finals The Serb, who lost the top ranking to Nadal last month, won 6-3 6-4 at the O2 Arena in London.

Nadal might have earned the year-end number one ranking after his remarkable return from injury in February, but Djokovic denied him a first ATP Finals title and laid down a marker for battles to come in 2014.


Inquiry launched after Italian game abandoned over 'death threats'

Victor Dubuisson wins Turkish Airlines Open

"It's the highest quality of tennis that you have next to Grand Slams, because every match that you play, you play against a top 10 player every second day," said Djokovic. "Especially this year, with back to back Paris Bercy tournament and London, wasn't easy for sure.” One match point slipped past on the Nadal serve and another on his own, but Djokovic got the victory he so desperately wanted to end his season on a high when the world number one blazed a forehand wide.

There was success for Spain in the doubles, though, and for the second straight year, with Fernando Verdasco and David Marrero beating Bob and Mike Bryan to follow in the footsteps of Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez. The Bryan brothers were going for their 12th title of a season that saw them come within two victories of a calendar Grand Slam. But they were edged out on a match tie-break, with Verdasco and Marrero winning 7-5 6-7 (3-7) 10-7.

Frenchman Victor Dubuisson held off Jamie Donaldson, Justin Rose and Tiger Woods to claim his maiden European Tour title at the Turkish Open.

The 23-year-old, who started the day five shots in front, carded a final-round 69 to end two clear on 24 under. Wales' Donaldson hit a hole-in-one at 16 in his 63 to end second, two ahead of world number one Woods (67) and US Open champion Justin Rose (65).

Ian Poulter (69) tied for fifth with France's Raphael Jacquelin at 19 under. Sweden's Henrik Stenson (69) finished one stroke further behind to maintain his lead the Race to Dubai rankings.

Stenson leads the season-long standings from Rose, Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, Poulter and now Donaldson with just next week's DP World Tour Championship to come in Dubai.

An investigation has begun after an Italian third division match was called off amid allegations of death threats and a team being reduced to six men. Salernitana were hosting Nocerina on Sunday in the game in question. The away team's fans were banned and reportedly threatened their own players about taking part. Nocerina made three substitutions in the opening two minutes and five players went off injured before the match was called off after 21 minutes.


Lionel Messi ruled out for up to two months Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been ruled out for between six and eight weeks because of a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old limped off in Sunday's win over Real Betis and has a muscle tear in his left hamstring. The Argentina international has been hampered by injuries this season and had to be substituted against Atletico Madrid in August with a left thigh problem. He also injured his thigh against Almeria in September. Messi picked up the latest injury after 18 minutes against Betis, with tests on Monday revealing the extent of the problem.
