Spain "on verge" of emerging from recession, says Zapatero

round up SPAIN

THE PRESIDENT of the Spanish government, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, claimed that Spain "is on the verge of leaving the recession behind" and accused the leader of the opposition PP party, Mariano Rajoy, of "exaggerating" and "creating alarm" over the economic situation. Zapatero reiterated that the worldwide economy was going through the deepest recession for over 80 years, saying that members of the opposition "are well aware of this, but choose to ignore it". He added that the majority of developed countries were now emerging from the recession and that Spain was "on the verge" of doing the same.

‘is on the verge of leaving the recession behind’

By means of reply, the leader of the opposition reminded Zapatero that "according to his own words" employment creation is the thermometer of a country's emergence from a recession, after which he accused the leader of the government of "doing nothing", of being "urged on" by the markets and of making statements that "have generated alarm and uncertainty". Furthermore, Rajoy described the latest economic figures to be released as "worrying", highlighting in particular the seven consecutive quarters that Spain has been in recession, the lack of credit, the public debt, which has reach 11.4% of the GDP

TAPAS TAKE OFF AS A RESULT OF THE RECESSION and the four million people now unemployed in the country. Zapatero responded by saying that the destruction of the employment market was the most serious effect of the recession, but insisted that those who were out of work "have never had such a high level of protection" as they have now, thanks to "the government's solidarity". The leader of the government said that a "joint effort" on the part of everyone was now needed to reduce public debt, to which Rajoy responded that the government's credibility had been "destroyed" and urged Zapatero to put together a credible economic plan, which set priorities to reduce public debt.

THE RECESSION has led many people living in Spain to cut down on meals out, but as a result tapas have grown in popularity, says the National Tasting Association. Its head, José Manuel Escorial, says that 'the future of eating out lies in tapas', or its Basque equivalent, pintxos, which are on cocktail sticks rather than small plates or in the form of small kebab-sticks. “Given the recession, people will just eat three or four tapas, instead of a meal,

to save money, and I think this trend is likely to grow,” says Escorial. The most important aspect of tapas and pintxos is not just their flavour and original presentation, he reveals, but also their 'commercial' image – that of being practical snacks that customers can enjoy every day. They have become a good ally, Escorial believes, for 'getting people out of the house'.

Union Jack inspires Álex Vidal Legislation has reduced smokingat Valencia Fashion Week THE LATEST collection to showcased by Álex Vidal at Valencia Fashion Week (Semana de la Moda de Valencia) has been inspired by the United Kingdom, with flannel as the mainstay of this season's pieces as well as Prince of Wales checks in anything from mohair to cool wool. The collection, entitled "Union Jack" has been designed by Álex Vidal junior and puts great emphasis on women's shoulders, with the aim of achieving a "T" shaped silhouette. Trousers follow the same line too, continuing this year's drainpipe fashion, and are combined with London-style tailored overcoats. Dresses are long and made of

flowing satin crepe in the red, white and blue of the Union Jack, combined with the grey of the London sky and eternal black. This latest collection sees flannel combined with Prince of Wales checks in all different sizes, traditional tartans and micro-herringbones. Also showing off his latest collection in Valencia was Juan Vidal, with red as the main protagonist in a collection entitled "Bloody Mary". Juan Vidal combines pony skin with gabardine, knitwear, taffeta and silk muslin. Valencia Fashion Week was held at the Feria Valencia, with evening catwalk shows at the Umbracle in the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias.

related deaths

THE NUMBER of tobacco-related deaths has fallen by 1,500 a year in Spain since the antismoking laws were introduced in 2005, according to a report published by the Spanish Society of Epidemiology. "We are convinced that the new laws have helped reduce mortality, although smoking was already on the decline when the regulations were introduced, so we estimate that some 900 deaths would have been avoided anyway and some 600 are a direct result of the 2005 legislation", said Manel Nebot, one of the coordinators of the working group on smoking. The other coordinator, Esteve Fernández, added that these figures were "conservative" because they are "only based on deaths from myocardial infarction and lung cancer, whereas there are many other illnesses linked to tobacco". The study also concludes that "the 2005 legislation has not had a negative impact on the catering trade, neither in terms of number of staff employed, nor in terms of sales", leading Nebot to believe that any arguments against a further tightening the laws for economic reasons are "artificial".

'Cell 211' dominates Goyas

DANIEL MONZÓN'S hard-hitting prison drama 'Cell 211' emerged as the big winner at the recent Goya Awards ceremony in Madrid. 'Cell 211' took eight awards in total, including best film, best director (Daniel Monzón), best adapted script as well as best actor for Luis Tosar's portrayal of a prison inmate. The other hotly-tipped film, Alejandro Amenabar's historical drama 'Agora', picked up seven awards, including best original screenplay, Amenabar's 11th career Goya. Besides the actual awards, there was plenty more to get Hollywood tongues wagging: Penélope Cruz and

Javier Bardem finally made an official public appearance together, sitting side by side at the ceremony. Although hotly tipped for the best actress award for her part in Pedro Almodóvar's 'Broken Embraces', Cruz was passed over as the award went to Lola Dueñas for her role in 'Me Too'. The other big surprise of the night was the appearance of Spain's most internationally recognized filmmaker, Pedro Almodovar, who quit the academy in 2005 amidst controversy over voting procedures and hasn't attended a ceremony since. Almodovar, who has often accused the

Spanish Film Academy of snubbing his films, received a standing ovation from the audience just for showing up. Before presenting Alejandro Amenabar and Mateo Gil with the award for best original screenplay, Almodovar told the audience, "I'm here because you have a very persistent president. He {Alex Iglesias} pestered me until two days ago. And I had a lot of excuses, but he wouldn't take no for an answer."

Valencia C.F.'s new stadium 'will not be ready for next season'

VALENCIA FOOTBALL club's new stadium still has not been built – and works stopped on it a year ago, sources from the team reveal. The construction of the Mestalla stadium began in August 2007, but the process began to slow down towards the end of 2008 before stopping altogether in February last year. According to Valencia C.F., work could not resume until the club had sufficient cashflow to continue the project. But around three months ago, the club announced that it had reached an agreement to re-start the works and that it would not stop 'until the first match was played there'. The plan was to begin the work in January or, at the latest, February this year. It would be ready for the 2011 and 2012 season, the construction firms behind the new Mestalla confirmed at the time. But given the unfinished state of the stadium, this has now been ruled out

Pollution 'can cause 200 new radar speed heart attacks and traps on Spain's roads arteriosclerosis'

every year


motorway can double the risk of suffering from arteriosclerosis, a condition causing the arteries to harden and which can lead to heart problems. According to the Environmental Epidemiology Investigation Centre in Barcelona (CREAL), the plaque of the artery wall grows at a rate of 5.5 micrometres per year in those who live less than 100 metres from a motorway. This is more than double that of the average, healthy person. Up to now, studies have shown that pollution can lead to heart attacks, as well as other health problems, but this is the first time research has revealed that arteriosclerosis can be caused by air


contamination – although this process has been seen in the past in animals. Alongside Swiss scientists and researchers from the University of Southern California, CREAL examined 1,500 people over the course of three years, measuring their level of arterial hardening every six months. CREAL's spokesman Xavier Basagaña pointed out that Barcelona's pollution levels are considerably higher than the safe limit recommended by the World Health Organisation, and greater even than those of Los Angeles. He says diesel-fuelled cars generate more dangerous pollution than those that run on petrol.

PERE NAVARRO, director of the national traffic department (DGT), told the press recently that there would be a limit on the number of new radar speed traps on the roads each year, stating that "they cannot increase indefinitely" and quoting 150-200 as possible limits. In a breakfast conference that brought together representatives of the various sectors concerned with traffic problems, including José Antonio Alonso, the man responsible for pushing through the licence points system, the issue of radars was debated, along with the core traffic safety issues: speed, helmets, seatbelts and alcohol. It was agreed that there had to be a finite number of radar speed traps on the roads, and where necessary, existing ones would have to be moved to different locations if it was felt that the need was greater elsewhere. Navarro (pictured) denied that it was the DGT's intention to increase revenue from fines, but rather to achieve a greater respect for the traffic laws, which in turn would reduce the number of accidents.

Although he maintained that recent changes in the traffic laws had led to "safer behaviour" by drivers on the roads, Navarro pointed out that 15,000, or 0.6% of drivers, still lost their licence (because of the points system) every year. Statistically the roads are now much safer than before the licence points system was introduced, with 2000 fewer deaths being recorded on the roads last year than when the system was first introduced.

Before the points system came into operation, an average of 11 people were dying on the road each day, which has now been reduced to 5.2 deaths a day. On a Europe-wide level, Spain's road safety figures have also improved, registering 68 road deaths per million inhabitants last year, whereas in 2003 there were 123 per million at a time when the average in Europe was 105.

GASOL European basketball player of the year 2009 SPAIN'S PAU GASOL has been named European basketball player of the year for 2009 by the FIBA, the second consecutive year he has been awarded the honour. Gasol, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers as well as the Spanish national team, beat Germany's Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Serbia's Milos Teodosic, from Greek side Olympiakos, amongst others, to take the prize. The Spanish centre, who played in his third NBA All Stars game recently, won the American NBA league with the Lakers and the European Championship with Spain last year, achievements that have again been recognised by experts and fans alike with this latest award.

"Year after year Pau distinguishes himself not only on court, but also off it.

Gasol won by a clear margin of votes, both from the panel of experts as well as from the fans. Rudy Fernández and Juan Carlos Navarro, two other members of Spain's European Championship winning side, who play with the Portland Trail Blazers and Barcelona respectively, came in sixth and seventh in the voting.

'Alcohol-free' fad finds niche in wine market DESPITE THE consternation that it causes amongst certain sectors of the population, the fashion for 'light' or '0.0% 'products has finally found a way into the wine market with the launch of a new 'low-calorie' alcohol-free wine, finding a previously unexploited niche in this lucrative market. The new wine was launched at the Bizkai-Vinos wine show, held at the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao and David Núñez, sales rep for the Matarromera Group, commented that people's surprise at an alcohol-free wine is "no different from their reaction to alcoholfree beer 20 years ago". Matarromera has vineyards supplying the Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Toro brands. Núñez explained that the wine is "deconstructed" to separate the aromas, the alcohol and everything else, only to

Catholic Church cashes in on tax returns THE CATHOLIC Church received 252,682,547 euros via tax returns in 2009, thanks to people making tax deductable donations to the institution by ticking the appropriate box on their forms. According to data supplied by the Spanish Episcopal Conference (CEE) at a press conference, the number of taxpayers making donations to the Catholic Church increased by 237,143 last year, and by 711,975 over the last two years. The CEE spokesperson, Juan Antonio Martínez Camino, pointed out that a substantial proportion of tax returns are done on a joint basis (between 20 and 25%) so "we can estimate that last spring in the region of nine million people made donations to the Catholic Church".

The more than 252 million euros donated during the last tax year equates to an increase of 11 million euros compared with the previous year. The proportion of tax returns on which there was a donation to the Catholic Church in the last tax year was 34.31%, a similar percentage to previous years according to Fernando Jiménez, the CEE's vicesecretary for Economic Affairs. Camino used the press conference to thank all those who had made a contribution towards the Catholic Church on their latest tax return, but added that the church still depended on other forms of collaboration for its survival, saying that the weekly collections and subscriptions "remain absolutely indispensable".

be put back together again without the alcohol in a process he described as "non-aggressive" and "natural". He admitted that there was as yet little public demand for the product, but remained optimistic because "90% of the client calls we get are asking about the non-alcoholic wine and where it's available in their area" adding that "it's the bar and restaurant owners who have to believe in it". The target audience for the advertisers is predominantly "young and female" although Núñez added that there was "a great deal of interest in countries where alcohol is banned". Núñez described the wine as "jovial" and "fresh" and underlined the huge difference in calorie count compared with normal wine - only 4 kilocalories per 100g compared with usual 200 kilocalories.

Consumer spending on the up

CONSUMER SPENDING increased slightly in the last quarter of 2009, the first rise the country has seen in two years. Spending increased by 0.3% in the fourth quarter of last year, compared with the third, whilst the GDP for the same period continued to drop, albeit only slightly, with a fall of 0.1%. According to the National Institute of Statistics (INE) consumer spending has not risen in Spain since the final quarter of 2007, so this small rise adds to overall improvement in the different components of the country's GDP. Nevertheless, the overall figures for the economy saw a 3.6% drop compared with last year, the biggest fall in four decades. Employment figures are the most alarming, with a 6.1% increase in unemployment, equating to 1.25 million fewer full-time jobs compared with the previous year. Despite the small rise in consumer spending at the end of last year, the overall figures for 2009 showed a 3.5% drop in spending compared with 2008, whilst wages also fell 2.7%, slightly less than previously. As a result of the government's incentive scheme (Plan 2000E), new car registrations bucked the general downward trend, rising by almost 30% in the last quarter of 2009. Spending in other areas like food, consumer goods and services, continued to fall, although not as sharply as before. The drop in public spending also slowed down significantly, going from a 4.1% drop in the third quarter to a 0.8% drop in the fourth. ADVERTISING 96 270 8087 thinkS


Pope could consecrate Sagrada Familia temple THE CARDINAL of Barcelona, Lluís Martínez Sistach, announced that Pope Benedict XVI is "very interested" and "keen" to come to Barcelona to consecrate the temple of the Sagrada Familia church. Nevertheless, in his press conference, Sistach insisted that the visit had not yet been confirmed, but that they were hoping the Pope would be able to fit it into his diary. Ideally, the Pope would travel to Barcelona in November, as the work on the roof of the central nave of Gaudí's temple is due to be completed in the autumn, but the Cardinal said he would "fit around the Pope's diary". Although the Pope has not yet confirmed his travel arrangements, the secretary of the Vatican State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, has confirmed his own visit to Barcelona from April 24th to 26th. If the Pope does indeed come to Barcelona to consecrate the Temple of the Sagrada Familia, "Cardinal Bertone's visit will be a good preparation", said Sistach, underlining the fact that the Vatican Secretary of

State was "the second-most important figure after the Pope and a very close colleague of the Pontiff". During his visit to Barcelona, Cardinal Bertone will visit the temple of the Sagrada Familia and the Montserrat Monastery, as well as attending the beatification ceremony for Father Josep Tous Soler. Should Pope Benedict confirm his visit in the autumn, it would be his first to Barcelona and he would hold a mass in the Sagrada Familia, which has a capacity for 10,000 people and which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. "The Pope has received our invitation with great interest," said Cardinal Sistach. "His Holiness attaches great importance to art and beauty as a pathway towards God, and the templo of the Sagrada Familia is a

great example of art and beauty," he added. The temple "is the most important church currently under construction in the world and is dedicated to the family, something very dear to the Holy Father's heart", he went on. For his part, the head architect on the Sagrada Familia works, Jordi Bonet, has expressed his desire to receive the Pope and gave assurances that the work on the roof would indeed be completed in time for his visit.

Facebook Spain Pioneering surgery raises minimum on 39-stone patient age to 14

FACEBOOK HAS raised the minimum age to join its social networking site from 13 to 14 according to information released by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD). Up until now the minimum age to join Facebook was 13, in line with US legislation. This decision brings Facebook in line with Spanish legislation, which dictates that information of the kind exchanged on Facebook cannot be shared by children under the age of 14 and is a response to a personal request from the AEPD's director, Artemi Rallo. The AEPD has declared its satisfaction with the new measure, saying that it was "a significant step by a multinational Internet company to come in line with national requirements, like those here in Spain, to guarantee personal privacy". Spain is the only country where Facebook has increased its minimum age for people to join its social network. The AEPD has had a number of meetings with those in charge of the various social networking sites, and in last July's meeting with the board of Facebook in Spain, Artemi Rallo asked for the minimum age to be raised and also asked for measures to be implemented to limit access to under-14s. The director of the AEPD has now convened another meeting with the directors of Facebook to discuss outstanding demands and in particular, privacy issues, which the network's recent updates provoked amongst users.


A PATIENT weighing 260 kilos (39 stone 4lb) has undergone a pioneering form of minimally-invasive open stomach surgery at a Sevilla hospital. The man in question was said to be dangerously obese, to the point that his life was in danger, meaning surgical intervention was critical to help reduce his body weight. Doctors at the Virgen del Rocío hospital (pictured) say they carried out a laparoscopy making five incisions of 1.2 centimetres (approximately half an inch) in depth at the same time. The same hospital has carried out more than 500 open stomach operations on dangerously-obese patients, with one weighing 330 kilos (51 stone 2lb) who is said to have recently been discharged with no complications suffered following surgery.

MADRID FASHION WEEK MADRID FASHION WEEK was held last month with designers showcasing their autumn-winter collections that they hope will help see off the recession of 2009, which has taken its toll on the textile industry, like so many others sectors of the economy. From February 18th until February 23rd, designers presented their collections at the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week, plus there were many new faces, showing the latest trends for the coming seasons, with the youngest and most daring designers - Sara Coleman, Beba's Closet, Cati Serrà (see picture), Georgina Ordinas, Anjara, Solitas, Isabael Mastache, Carlos Doblas, Maya Hansen and American Pérez. Big names in Spanish fashion included - Jesús del Pozo, Francis Montesinos, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Victorio & Lucchino, Elio Berhanyer, Roberto Verino and Adolfo Domínguez. A total of 51 designers took part in this year's Madrid Fashion Week, plus another 30 up-and-coming designers who showcased their work in the "El Ego". 17 of these new faces come from Madrid, ten from Catalunya and the rest from other parts of the country. This year's event saw 43 catwalk shows introducing this year's autumn-winter collections. One new face at Cibeles was the young Catalan designer, Teresa Helbig, and this year also saw the return to the fold of Ion Fiz, María Escoté and Jesús del Pozo, all of whom staged their own separate shows last year, rather than be part of the official Fashion Week.

Kevin Costner reveals his wife convinced him to take up rock music ACTOR AND singer Kevin Costner, who finished his successful tour in Madrid recently, reveals it was his wife who convinced him to take up rock and roll. “She said I seemed much happier when I was playing the guitar than at any other time, but I never paid any attention to her,” Costner – better known for his role in Robin Hood – admits. “Until one day I tried playing in public, and the people seemed to like it.”

He says he surrounded himself with 'old friends' in the industry, including John Coinman and Teddy Morgan, whom he met in a music workshop in the 1980s. Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, perform what they describe as 'western American rock', and their recent performance, promoting the album Turn it on, was part of their first-ever European tour. The CD is currently on sale in Spain.


I nfrared The future of heating

Where did the concept originate? From the dawn of our time, the sun has been emitting infrared rays that travel through space and warm the earth on contact. Think of the comforting warmth you feel when the sun is shining directly on you, even on an otherwise cold day. Today, technology brings the comfort and warmth of infrared into our homes. Originally invented in Japan in 1967, the infrared radiator has been a popular form of heating in northern Europe for the last few years and now it has arrived in Spain!

with our winters becoming longer, and costs of heating constantly increasing, I would like to introduce you to a new affordable, energy efficient and low cost form of heating for your homes or businesses......

How does infrared work? Unlike traditional heating systems, infrared heaters do not heat the air to warm a room. Instead they emit completely harmless rays that warm solid objects on contact, walls, ceilings, furnishings, you. Once warmed, these objects in turn radiate heat back contributing to the warmth of the room.

Bill Dyer RADyCAL Heating

What are the advantages of infrared heating? Costs Infrared radiators use of rays rather than convection mean that they are a very costeffective form of electric heating and costs up to 60% less to run than gas or oil. Consider the real costs of a gas/oil system – expensive installation, fuel costs, annual servicing and maintenance, electricity costs for pump. Infrared radiators can be installed

Vacuum tubes and house heating systems. Gregor explains all.




Heating water with a solar system

his month I am going to address a few points that have been raised by clients. As we principally sell vacuum tube solar panels many people are concerned about the vacuum tubes. They look fragile. What happens for example if it hails? The answer to this is that normally nothing happens. The tubes can stand hail of 30mm diameter or more. This is quite a lot. When the hail is this big, it will cause damage to many things such as cars for example. It can happen, but very rarely. We have never had any problems with this. In fact, we have broken many of these tubes, but only transporting or mounting them. Once everything is in place, you

should not have any trouble with the tubes. The vacuum tubes have two big advantages in comparison to the flat plate solar panels. The round shape gives them a lot of resistance and stability against, for example, hail or other external forces. The second advantage is, if they break, only some of them will break. The system can still work (although with a little less power) and the tubes can be changed individually, without having to touch the hydraulic installation. One of the things I really like about the solar systems for hot water is, that in comparison to the gas heaters the solar systems are

much more “comfortable” for people and that they can save water. This is not easy to understand and I will try to explain it here. The most common way of heating the water in this area is with a gas boiler, which is an instantaneous water heating system. It can be only for hot water, or in combination with a house heating system. These systems do instantaneously heat up, only the water that we need in this actual moment. Their advantage is that they are quite efficient and relatively clean in terms of emissions. The disadvantage is that the water has to flow to a relatively thin coil, where it is heated by the gas flame. This makes the water pressure drop (less pressure at the tap) and it is not so easy to regulate the temperature. This results, in many times, varying water t e m p e r a t u r e , depending on how much the tap is open and when a second tap is opened at the same time usually one of them gets colder. One is taking a shower and someone else opens a tap and the water gets cold in the shower. I am sure many of you have experienced this. A second disadvantage is that we always need to open the tap quite a lot to start the boiler. If it is open only a little, the boiler does not start. So we consume more water. Obviously, the newer and more expensive boilers work better and the above described effects are not that pronounced. The other way of heating our water is having it inside a tank and heating it up with electricity or heating oil or gas. This is very comfortable, because we will always have hot water stored for our use. No pressure drops, no

variations in temperature, no minimum opening of the tap to start the system…… The disadvantage with this system is that energetically it is not very efficient. We store the hot water all the time, regardless whether we need it or not, we always have heat losses in a system and the water has to be heated continuously, even if we do not need it. If it is electric, you do not notice it, but if you for example have an oil heating system, you will notice, that the system will start various times of the day, even if you do not use hot water. Additionally the very short working periods of the systems make them even less efficient and can cause them to get dirty easier and to require more maintenance. With the solar system we can have the comfort of the stored hot water in the tank with all its advantages but we do not use valuable and expensive energy to heat the water up constantly. We do it with the sun, which is for free, clean and efficient.

Additionally I would like to mention that many people have mentioned to me that it is just nicer to have a shower, knowing that the water is heated up by the sun. I can confirm this with my personal experience. Even if it sounds strange, but I do enjoy my solar

system. Especially in the winter time, when it seems incredible that the water can be heated by the sun. If you would like to enjoy a solar system, I would be pleased to visit you and to check to see if and how it is possible to install a solar system and prepare a quotation for you, without any obligation.

NEW BENTLEY CONTINENTAL Supersports Convertible The Continental Supersports Convertible further strengthens Bentley’s supercar range, following the introduction of the Continental Supersports Coupé in 2009. The new Supersports Convertible, with the same 630PS (621bhp/463kW) twin-turbocharged W12 engine, is the fastest, most potent drop‑top Bentley has ever built, offering the ultimate Bentley driving experience in the world’s most dramatic convertible. The inspiration for the ‘Supersports’ name is the 1925 Bentley Supersports, a race-bred version of the iconic Bentley 3-litre, that delivered 85bhp when more ordinary cars were equipped with a modest 15bhp. It was also the first production car to reach 100mph – extreme performance in its day. The new, muscular four-seat Supersports Convertible is unmistakably Bentley in its design and craftsmanship but its interior signifies a dramatic reinterpretation of Bentley luxury. Satin-finished carbon fibre, Alcantara™ and ‘Soft Grip’ leather create a unique ambience with a distinctly sporting and contemporary style. All models in the Continental model range, including the new S u p e r s p o r t s Convertible are now capable of running on both petrol (gasoline) and E85 bioethanol or any combination of the two, reaffirming OFFICIAL DEALER Bentley’s ongoing commitment to make TEL. 96 578 72 12 all its cars bio-fuel Ctra. Dénia - Ondara, Km. 2 compatible by 2012. Aptdo. 536 - 03700 DÉNIA e-mail Pioneered by the


Supersports Coupe, this FlexFuel technology offers a reduction of up to 70 per cent in CO2 emissions on a ‘well-towheel’ basis, a measure of a fuel’s net contribution to the atmosphere, not just tailpipe emissions. To ensure seamless power delivery, the on-board fuel supply system detects the blending ratio of the fuel in the tank and ensures that power and torque remain constant regardless of the ratio of petrol to biofuel. Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen welcomes the new addition to the Bentley range, as well as the standardisation of the FlexFuel W12 engine on all 2011 Continental models: “The new Supersports Convertible blends thrilling performance and dramatic styling with luxury and practicality in the Bentley open-top tradition. Extreme power combines with pioneering FlexFuel technology, now shared with all Continental

models, reflecting Bentley’s ongoing commitment to more environmental motoring.”

Minestrone Soup INGREDIENTS

1 large onion, diced 4-5 large garlic cloves, crushed and minced 4 carrots, sliced 4 celery stalks, chopped 1 fennel bulb, chopped 6 white button mushrooms, sliced 1 rind of parmesan cheese 1 can 400gr of cooked red kidney beans 1 can 400gr of cooked "young" red kidney beans 2 bay leafs

large handful of parsley, tied into a bunch and washed handful of parsley leaves, finely chopped for serving 3 or 4 tbsp tomato paste 3 or 4 handfuls of dried small pasta shells 1/3 cup freshly grated pecorino cheese, plus a little more for serving salt and pepper olive oil 1 cup dry white wine water


Pork Wellington INGREDIENTS

1 whole egg 1 tablespoon water 29 gms dried apple rings 1 whole pork tenderloin, approximately 0.5 kg 127gms ounces thinly slice prosciutto ham 1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves 1 teaspoon flour 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed completely 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard


1. Place a rack in the upper third of the oven and heat to 400 deg F. 2. Whisk the egg and water in a small bowl and set aside. Place the apple rings into a food processor and process for 30 to 45 seconds or until they are the size of a medium dice. Set aside. 3. Trim the pork tenderloin of any excess fat and silver skin. Slice the tenderloin down the middle lengthwise, creating 2 separate pieces. Lay the tenderloin pieces next to each other head to tail, so when laid back together they are the same size at the ends. 4. Lay out a 12 by 16-inch piece of parchment paper on the worktop and arrange the pieces of prosciutto in the center, overlapping them enough to create solid layer that is as long as the tenderloin. Top with a second piece of parchment. Using a rolling pin, roll over the prosciutto to help stick the pieces to each other. Remove the paper and sprinkle the prosciutto with the salt, pepper, and thyme. 5. Put the pork down the middle of the prosciutto. Spread the dried apples in between the 2 pieces of tenderloin and push back together so the apples are held between them. Using the parchment paper to assist, wrap the prosciutto around the tenderloin to completely enclose in a package. 6. Roll out the pastry (on floured worktop) to 12 x 14 inches. Spread the mustard thinly in the centre of pastry and lay the prosciutto wrapped tenderloin in the centre of the pastry on the mustard. Fold the puff pastry up and over the top of the tenderloin, then roll to completely enclose, coat pastry with the egg in order to seal. Turn the tenderloin over so the side of the tenderloin with the double thickness of pastry is underneath. Pinch the ends to seal. 7. Brush the entire pastry with the egg. Place the tenderloin on a parchment lined tray and bake for 25 to 30 mins. 8. Transfer to a cooling rack and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

1. Boil a kettle of water. 2. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a saucepan on medium heat and saute the onions and garlic for several minutes. Add the carrots, mushrooms, celery, fennel and the parmesan rind. Add a few pinches of salt and continue to cook stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. 3. Rinse the beans well in a colander and stir into the saucepan 4. Place the tied parsley on top, add the bay leaves, 6 or 7 whole peppercorns and the tomato paste, and then pour in the cup of white wine and the hot water from your kettle (add water until the level is over the top of the vegetables). 5. Stir gently and then bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cook covered at a gentle simmer for 40 or 50 minutes. 6. Stir occasionally. 7. Boil pasta shells in lightly salted water until al-dente and then transfer the pasta to the saucepan. Cook the soup for another 10 minutes, Check seasoning before serving, stir in the grated pecorino cheese. Serve with a little freshly chopped parsley and grated pecorino cheese on top.

A short history of the fallas

Las fallas in the 21st century

Nowadays each fallas can only be truly understood by walking all the way around, reading the ironic verses around the base and then looking up from the central body to the top, that summarises the satirical vision below. They are lavish and imposing structures, many of them reaching extravagant heights, some as high as 20m. In the city of Valencia alone over 370 full-scale fallas are erected, occupying almost every street corner or plaza. The impressive structures are accompanied by colourful pageantry, amazing lights and decorations in the streets, lively casals where the falleros and falleras in their traditional dress party in true Valencian style to the sound of regional music. The erecting of the fallas or plantà takes place late on March 15th, but many roads in Valencia are closed from 13th so that the casals or marquees can be erected. From March 15th – 18th the city council grants permission for the parties to go on until 4am, so if you stay over in the city, don’t expect to sleep!

Possibly Valencia’s most famous fiestas, Las Fallas, have their origins in a pagan celebration of the spring equinox. Several centuries ago, craftsmen, and in particular carpenters, used to extend their working hours in the winter by using a light on a stand, not dissimilar to a candelabra. When spring came carpenters would celebrate the lengthening of the day by ceremonially burning this light on the eve of St Joseph’s day, March 19th. In the 18th century people began adorning this candelabra with clothes and giving it a human face before it was burnt, not unlike the burning of the “guy” on bonfire night in the UK, and thus the present day ninot was born. Later, the ninots were made to represent local people worthy of public derision and were strung up for all to see before being set alight over bonfires in the street. These bonfires became known as fallas and evolved over time from crude home-made affairs into well-constructed wooden platforms that allowed the cardboard, plaster and wax ninot to be admired from all sides. Later in the 18th century, satirical verses, mocking public figures, policies or attitudes from local, provincial and national life were added to the structures and by the 19th century these were being printed, bound and distributed amongst the people in Valencia in the form of a llibret, which is an integral part of the fiesta today. Thus the fallas evolved from spring bonfires into decorative scenes criticising anything and everything imaginable. By the end of the 20th century, the fallas had starting exalting local values and traditions, as well as indulging in tongue-in-cheek social criticism.

Sunday 7th March 6pm - Cavalgata del Ninot Avenida Loygorri, Paseo Monday 15th March 'Plantà' or setting up of falla monuments. Wed 17th March 2pm - Mascletà (paseo) 6pm - Flower Offering (Monjas Clarisas, Avenida Loygorri, Paseo) followed by prize ceremony (paseo)

Thurs 18th March 2pm - Mascletà (paseo) Fri 19th March - St. Joseph's Day 12.30pm - St Joseph's Day Mass 2pm - Mascletà (paseo) 9.30pm - CREMÀ - burning of the Fallas Infantiles begins midnight - CREMÀ - burning of the main Fallas begins (in reverse order according to prizes)


In Valencia, the fiesta kicks off right on the first day of March with the first mascletà – a thunderous daytime pyrotechnic display using masclets, the most powerful fireworks available. This spectacular gunpowder concert lasts only a few minutes, but has to be experienced at least once. Pyrotechnicians study the rhythm of firework sequences, launches and whistles, combining them into a spectacular crescendo that concludes with the terremoto (earthquake) when hundreds of masclets explode on the ground simultaneously. Thousands of people descend upon the town hall square (Plaza del Ayuntamiento) at 2pm every day from March 1st –19th for this seven or eight minute long ear splitting banger display. Definitely a must!

La Ofrenda

One of the most attractive events of the fallas calendar is the ofrenda or flower offering to the patron saint of Valencia, La Virgen de los Desamparados (Our Lady of the Forsaken) that is from 4pm until midnight held over two consecutive days, March 17th & 18th. Over 100,000 Valencians take part in this procession, carrying thousands and thousands of bunches of flowers through the city streets to the Plaza de la Virgen in front of the Basilica. The flowers are placed over a wooden structure that serves as a framework upon which an image of the Virgin is formed. The completed floral image is magnificent and well worth the short walk from the town hall to the Basilica to see.

Nit de Foc

On the nights of the 15, 16, 17, and 18th there are fireworks displays at 1am in the old riverbed in Valencia. Each night is progressively grander and the last is called La Nit de Foc, the night of fire. Not content with the daytime firework displays, the city of Valencia lights up the night sky from the Paseo Alameda between the Puente de la Exposición and the Puente de Flores with a spectacular pyrotechnic display at 1.30am.

La Cremà

The main event is, of course, when the fallas are all burnt, the cremà, which happens from 10pm onwards on March 19th, when the city’s skies are aglow with the flames of hundreds of effigies simultaneously set alight. The children’s fallas are the first to go at 10pm followed by all the main fallas except for the winner of the first prize and the town hall falla that are saved until last. Most British people, used to the stringent safety measures employed on bonfire night, are stunned by the proximity of the fire when they first experience the burning of the fallas. Nearby buildings are hosed down by fire fighters to make sure they don’t catch alight, people stand only a few metres away from the towering infernos and burning ashes seem to blow in all directions. It has to be seen at close quarters to be believed!

BLONDE bombshell Shakira appears in a saucy new video alongside Mallorca-born tennis star Rafa Nadal which has recently been released by her record company, Sony. The 33-year-old Colombian pop-rocker, who shot to fame in the UK with Whenever, wherever, the English version of her hit single Suerte, in early 2002 – some eight years after embarking on her chart-topping career in her native Latin America – is said to be wearing very little on the video with Rafa aside from black lacy underwear and a see-through skirt. The tennis star, who appears alongside Shakira in a number of sizzling scenes on the videoclip, is casually-dressed in jeans and a white T-shirt. Sony reveals the video accompanies her single Gypsy,

from her new album She-wolf. Also recorded in Spanish as Gitana, it appears on the same CD which is marketed under the name of Loba in Spain and Latin America. She has already gone platinum just 18 weeks after the album's launch. In real life, Shakira is in a serious relationship with Antonio de la Rúa, son of the former Argentinean president. She appeared with Antonio on the video for Underneath your clothes, taken from the 2002 album Laundry service, since she said she would be unable to perform a song that was, to her, so intimate, with anyone other than the man in her life. Shakira's video for Tortura, alongside Spanish pop legend Alejandro Sanz, was voted the hottest clip of the year in 2005.

S heavy metal rap band 'Rage Against the Machine' have announced that they are to play Rock in Río in Madrid on June 11th this year. It will be the band's only date in Spain this summer. Made up of Tom Morello, Zack de la Rocha, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, the group was formed in 1991 and enjoyed considerable success during the 1990s. They split up in 2000 and then got back together for the first time in seven years at the 2007 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California. During their initial nine year run, they became one of the most popular and influential political bands in contemporary music. With lyrics that heap criticsim on social phenomena like capitalism and globalisation, Rage Against the Machine's music is characterised by a unique fusion of rock, rap, funk, punk and hip hop. They were catapulted back into the limelight at the end of last year when a campaign was launched on Facebook by Jon and Tracy Morter, which generated nationwide publicity and took their track "Killing in the Name" to the coveted Christmas Number One slot in the UK Singles Chart, which had been dominated for four consecutive years from 2005 by winners from the popular TV show The X Factor. Madrid's Rock in Río was held for the first time in 2008 in the Ciudad del Rock in Arganda del Rey, where 290,000 people enjoyed a spectacular line-up, featuring artists like Tom Waits, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen. Shakira, Bon Jovi and Rihanna have already confirmed their presence at Rock in Río Madrid 2010.

WALL STREET - MONEY NEVER SLEEPS Shia LaBeouf stars with Michael Douglas, who'll reprise his Gordon Gekko role. Langella will play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors LaBeouf's character, a young Wall Street broker. When Gekko comes out of prison, he essentially has to redefine himself, redefine his character, he's looking for that second chance. LaBeouf portrays Jake Moore, who is the fiancé of Gekko's daughter, played by Carey Mulligan; Josh Brolin as the head of an investment bank; and Susan Sarandon as Jake's mother. Charlie Sheen, who played the central role of Bud Fox, a young trader, in the original, will make a cameo in the sequel.

SHREK FOREVER AFTER Due for release May 2010 In this fourth installment Shrek is feeling overdomesticated. His roar that used to send villagers running away in terror has gone. Now they run to him and ask him to sign their pitchforks and torches. To regain his ogre mojo, he strikes a deal with Rumpelstiltskin. The pact goes awry and Shrek must confront what life would be like in Far Far Away if he had never existed. That translates into Donkey being forced into cart-pulling duty, fat and lazy Puss in Boots trading his sword for a pink bow and the underhanded Rumpelstiltskin ruling the kingdom.

Duration: 115 minutes The twelfth film from Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Ice Storm). Here, as in most of his films, using the guise of innocence knowledge to address the theme of the plot, in this case, the organisation's most famous music festival of the 60s: Woodstock, 1969. In Ang Lee's film, concerts remain offcamera, because you do not want the event itself, but its effects on American youth and values of the rigid outdated American society of the 50s.


HONOUR AND THE SWORD BY A. L BERRIDGE MICHAEL JOSEPH HARDBACK / £12.99 / 15TH APRIL Louise Berridge is ex-executive producer of Eastenders, whose resignation prompted a flurry of headlines. After graduating from Oxford, Louise taught for ten years. She has great insight into working in a 'male' field and believes that her knowledge of Shakespeare helped with Eastenders... Louise Berridge is the daughter of the late David Newsome, headmaster of Christ's Hospital (the charity-run boarding school). Amongst stories of corruption, Newsome resigned. He never spoke out about the scandal and it was this integrity which led to Louise writing Honour and the Sword. Honour and the Sword is a thrilling debut, for fans of Cornwell, Iggulden and O'Brien. The first of a series, it's set in 17th Century France at a time of the muskateers, noblemen and bloody It's 1969. Elliot works as an interior designer in warfare.

Elliot also represents Eugene Levy, his neighbor, and the owner of a 240 acre dairy in White Lake, which will go down in history as the venue providing the only Woodstock Festival. Adapted from the memoirs of Elliot Tiber ("Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, a Concert, and a Life"), who owned the motel called "The Monaco", where he settled in whilst organising the festival. The story revolves around the process, organisational and economic problems of Elliot (comedian Demetri Martin), and his family, before he got to meet more than half a million people during "three days of peace and music" that would revolutionise rock, pop music and culture and would mark a generation forever.

61 HOURS LEE CHILD Winter in South Dakota. Blowing snow, icy roads, a tired driver. A bus skids and crashes and is stranded in a gathering storm. There's a small town twenty miles away, where a vulnerable witness is guarded around the clock. There's a strange stone building five miles further on, all alone on the prairie. There's a ruthless man who controls everything from the warmth of Mexico. Jack Reacher hitched a ride in the back of the bus. A life without baggage has many advantages. And crucial disadvantages too, when it means facing the arctic cold without a coat. But he's equipped for the rest of his task. He doesn't want to put the world to rights. He just doesn't like people who put it to wrongs. ADVERTISING 96 270 8087 thinkS






ShaToBu is the first-ever shaper that not only provides a sleek silhouette, but also helps women shape, tone and burn up to 12% more calories during everyday activity. Scientifically developed and proven to work by a team of doctors and exercise physiologists, ShaToBu blends researched based function with comfort and fashion. ShaToBu is based on the principle of resistance training. The simple yet ingenious technology uses seamless resistance bands to make muscles work a little harder during natural movement, like walking or climbing stairs. When muscles work harder, more calories are burned. Scientific studies conducted at the University of Virginia show that women wearing ShaToBu burn up to 12% more calories during everyday activities such as walking or climbing stairs. The benefits of ShaToBu extend beyond ordinary shapewear - it not only gives a sleek silhouette, but women can also feel and see a difference in their bodies with regular use over time. The seamless resistance bands in the buttocks and thigh area are combined with a specially designed, non-binding waist and leg bands to prevent rolling, cutting or bulging. ShaToBu is made from nylon and Lycra and has a CoolMax cotton gusset. ShaToBu is comfortable enough to wear all day, every day. Available in two styles; Waist to Knee (GBP40) and High Waist to Knee (GBP50) in buff and black and a wide range of sizes. ShaToBu is now available to preorder exclusively in the UK at, as well as at select retailers and e-tailers in the United States. ShaToBu is produced by Mayfair Tech, Inc., an affiliate of Doris Hosiery Mills, Ltd., a leading North American hosiery manufacturer.

K store Debenhams has revealed that the average British woman's cosmetic bag is out of date by a worrying four years. The new research highlighted that many British women are using cosmetics well past the use-by date, unaware that products can be a magnet for germs which could cause damage to their health and looks. Sara Stern, Director of Cosmetics at Debenhams said, "British women are famously loyal to make up brands and products, however, their reluctance to throw away old products is a risky business." Beauty essentials such as foundation, concealer, blusher, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and perfume all include a 'period after opening' indicator, denoted by an open pot with the number of months of safe use written inside. Despite European Union guidelines meaning brands have to state product shelf lives, 89% of women are unaware that such information exists, do not understand what the symbol means or are unable to read the often tiny writing. Make-up, perfume and skincare products used after the expiry date carry a risk of irritation and infection. This is

due to air and bacteria infiltrating the products. Multiuse products carry an even higher risk as they can spread germs from eyes to skin to lips. The study also found that 68% of women only replace make-up and skincare when they run out, however long that might take. 72% of women never wash their make-up sponges or brushes, even though they should do at least once a week. 81% of British women also regularly (at least once a week) go to sleep without removing make up. Bevis Man of the British Skin Foundation said: "It's not always obvious when make-up has passed its prime, so it may not occur to people to replace their products. It is best to err on the side of caution and if a product looks or smells strange, it is worth throwing it away. "Cost is probably a major factor in why people do not replace out-of-date cosmetics. However, products can dry out and become less effective as they age. "Your eyes are one area of your face you need to be particularly careful with, as eye infections can be painful and long-lasting. Make-up sponges are a particular haven for bacteria, especially if they are kept for a long period of time

and are not washed. Again, it is best to keep them clean and replace them after a few months' use." As a result of the findings, Debenhams is exploring ways in which the 'best before' date of products can be better communicated to customers. Staff members are being trained to point out the importance of regularly replacing products and a 'make up' amnesty is planned nationwide. Debenhams has also written to the Secretary of State for Health to push for further legislation to cover the safety of consumers. Sara Stern concluded, "Hopefully this call to action will encourage women to have a ruthless spring clean of their cosmetics collections. All our Beauty Hall staff members are on hand to advise customers of the use-by dates of their current items and help replenish any empty cosmetic bags".


Abortion law reform approved in the Senate PAIN'S controversial abortion law reform has been approved in parliament by just a six-vote difference. The Senate recently voted 132 in its favour and 126 against, and one abstained. The law has been amended and updated constantly since its first draft, due to uproar over what pro-lifers and right-wing activists considered to be an open door to using abortion as another form of contraception. Changes to the law mean that girls aged 16 and 17 can have an abortion without having to obtain their parents' permission first. In the past, any woman choosing to terminate a pregnancy could be denied the right if psychiatric reports declared she was not in her right mind when she made the decision, or that to continue with the pregnancy would not cause her or the child physical or psychological harm. This could mean either a child born in circumstances not conducive to its


welfare or, in some cases, lead to him or her being abandoned. In many cases it also led to even greater psychological harm on the part of the mother, who then had to live with the guilt of her initial desire to have an abortion for the rest of her surviving child's life. Now, up to week 14 of the pregnancy, the woman does not have to give any explanation if she wishes to have an abortion. Up to week 22, she will only be expected to justify it in certain given situations. This now means Spain has joined the UK and a number of other European countries in making abortion fully legal and an integral right of any woman, up to a certain number of weeks. The number of abortions and unwanted pregnancies is higher in Spain than any other country in the EU, although teenage pregnancies – despite having increased dramatically – remain less common in Spain than elsewhere.

ood news for those of us that like to surf the net and visit all kinds of different web sites.

So your happily surfing the net and low and behold you find out that you have been infected with Spy / Ad ware. If you have not made sure your anti virus or anti spy ware software is up to date. or if you are still using an older version of Internet Explorer then you are more likely to come under attack. The good news is, in the very near future a company called SRI international will be releasing, free of charge, a piece of software called "Blade," this stands for Block All Drive By Downloaded Exploits. These kind of attacks can infect your computer just by visiting a website. When you visit a web site and your browser gets asked to install a file, it should ask you what to do, for example, run it , or reject it, but for the reasons stated above you can get infected without even knowing it. More information on this new tool against attacks from Ad or spyware can be found by searching for SRI International Blade anti virus in Google or your favorite search engine.


This month Kev talks security, stolen laptops and Skype.


Any of you that may have thought they have picked up a bargain and bought a laptop off of the back of a lorry or at a boot sale, may soon be in for a shock. If it turns out that the laptop was stolen and the rightful owner has installed a piece of software called Prey, you could be in for a surprise. As soon as the laptop is connected to the internet it will send information of the IP address of the laptop and also various other bits of information, including if a web cam is fitted a picture of whoever is sitting in


front of the laptop to the owner’s email account. From the ip address they can fnd out where the laptop is and what ISP it’s using. Prey is a free piece of software, so expect many laptop owners to start using it.


I have had a few Emails asking what Skype is? In a nutshell its a free piece of software that you can download. Once you have installed it, and registered a username and password you can contact other skype users for free computer to computer chat. If you attach a web cam and microphone you can see and hear & speak to the other users. You can chat to someone anywhere in the world for free. You can also choose to pay a small monthly charge and if your contact is not at a computer, you can dial their telephone number and call them. They answer by phone and you talk via your computer. Skype is handy at Christmas time or New Year, because if you have family members scattered all over the world, you can have a family conference call and all the family can be connected at once. It makes it easier and cheaper to have that christmas family argument no matter what the distance is between you all. The added bonus is you can turn it off when you’ve had enough!

to a year-on-year rise of 3.4 per cent. People in Spain are now paying a total of 6,667 million euros a year in social security payments towards their state retirement fund. Some 8.6 million pensions are being paid out across the country. Retirement pensions continue to be the highest of all monthly permanent benefits.

O SsyTofIPEsAtuD N CO o Saladar di Courte There are some words in Spanish and English that sound similar but they have different meanings. These words are called false friends: for instance tener un costipado means to have a cold in English // Constipated is estreñido in Spanish. The following is a story about Jane and her neighbours Carmen’s husband told me one day that Carmen was costipada. Then he asked me if I had any remedy to relieve symptoms. Upon hearing the word constipated I thought of a medicine that the doctor gave me when I was travelling around Spain and could not go to the toilet. I thought that my pills would be a great remedy for Carmen and I gave her husband a few. He was very grateful and gave the pills to Carmen. A few days later I asked him if she had improved and he said her cold was no better, but she didn’t dare .. cough because of the possible consequences.

JOKES NEVER CHEAT ON A COUNTRY WOMAN! A Country wife came home just in time to find her husband in bed with another woman. With super-human strength, borne of fury, cutting firewood, lifting sacks of feed, and bales of hay, she dragged him down the stairs, out the back door, and into the barn. She put his manhood in a vice, secured it tightly, and removed the handle. Next, she picked up an old carpenter's saw. The banged up cheater was terrified, and hollered, "Stop! Stop! You're not gonna cut it off with that rusty saw, are you?" The wife, with a gleam of revenge in her eye, put the saw in her husband's hand and said...... "Nope....You are! I'm gonna burn down the barn!"
