Celebration of Halloween hastaken off in Spain in recent yearsKNOWN as Day of the Witches where everyone dresses up

FAMOUS as a children’s celebration inthe USA where trick or treating hasseen hundreds of thousands of childrenacross the country dress up as ghostsand ghoulies visiting neighbours forsweets, Halloween has become increas-ingly more popular in Spain.

It has become part of a three-day cel-ebration running from October 31 toNovember 2. Halloween is known asthe Day of the Witches where adultsand children alike dress up and holdparties and is increasingly more popu-lar because November 1, All SaintsDay, is a very important public holiday

when people lay flowers on the gravesof deceased relatives and remembertheir own patron saints.

November 2 is All Souls Day whenpeople generally remember the depart-ed, whether family members or not.The entire three-day celebration is of-ten referred to as the Day of the Deadin Spain, although this title is more of-ten associated with Mexico.

Adults have definitely taken to walk-ing the streets dressed as vampires,werewolves and zombies with theirneighbours on Halloween night whichin parts of the north west of Spain is al-so known as the Night of the Pump-kins.

A LORRY driver transporting300 kilos of hashish fromMelilla had a very bad daywhen his lorry was hijacked bytwo men armed with a Kalash-nikov and then he was arrested.

Witnesses phoned the policeto report they had seen armedmen leap onto a lorry on theMediterranean motorway in

Motril and threaten the driverwith a gun to force him to con-tinue driving towards Granada.

National Police were sent tolocate the lorry and a high-speed chase ensued. Once thelorry was stopped, both the dri-ver and the hijackers were ar-rested and taken to the stationin Motril, where a search re-vealed drugs hidden in com-partments in the lorry’s sides.

Her long l i s t of achievements ,which include medals and awards forher work, has been reached bysteady, constant hard work combinedwith her strongest points - persever-ance, empathy, patience and compas-sion - which she refuses to refer to aswork.

“My work isn’t work. I love what Ido. I’ve got where I am by persever-ing through thick and thin, never tak-ing my eyes off my goal and alwayslooking ahead,” she explained.

So what was the hardes t par t?Swimming amongst sharks , she

After such a busy life, there musthave been many moments worth amention, yet she firmly stated thatthe best part had been watching themiracle of life in action: watchingher children grow up and her busi-ness do the same.

Medals, thousands of lives saved, abusiness to envy, what is Maria Joseproudest of?

“The loyal people who love theirwork and walk by my side, my chil-dren and my mother,” she told us.

ALTHOUGH the name MariaJose Cañete may not mean alot to some people, she is theheart and soul of HelicopterosSani tar ios , Spain’s leadingemergency service and homemedical assistance company. Itwas the first in Spain to offerboth roadside and home med-ical assistance.

Money has not been the dri-ving force behind Maria Jose’sbrainchild. Launched in 1988,the company is the product ofher lifelong desire to help andcare for people.

Today, her innovation em-ploys more than 200 highlyqualif ied professionals whohave dealt with more than 1.2million medical emergenciesand directly saved more than14,000 lives.

When asked, Maria Jose toldus that her best achievement inlife had been managing to stickto her principles and gain therespect and loyal ty of thoseshe cares for. Preferring not tospeak of failures, she said hergreatest discovery was realis-ing that goodness and honestyare not actually part of humannature.

This taught her that decep-t ion and pain should neverstop her in her tracks, and toremember that even wheneveryone else seems to be run-ning past her, she should stillpersevere and keep putting onefoot in front of the other.

Amazingly, in order to setup the service, she had to fol-low all of the protocol requiredto run a full airline company

Kids get on their bikes

PUPILS from Josefina Aldecoa Infant and PrimarySchool in Torre de Benagalbon will be cycling to andfrom school on Thursdays as part of a cycle to schoolscheme launched by the council and the Local Police.

The scheme aims to encourage cycling as a meansof transport and there will be two routes: one fromChilches and another from La Cala del Moral. Bothroutes run along the coastal path and will meet at LasGaviotas urbanisation and continue to the school

across the Macharaviaya roundabout.There and back the distance is about four kilome-

tres, the council reported, and cyclists will be accom-panied by two Local Police officers from Rincon de laVictoria.

Local Mayor Encarnacion Anaya said: “It is a pro-ject that will teach children basic road safety rulesand the Highway Code as well as promote sustainabletransport.”

Meetings will be held to spread the project to in-clude other local schools.

Malaga’sexports areon the upMALAGA is the Andalucian provincethat registered the largest growth in ex-ports over the first seven months of thisyear, reaching €1.05 billion, 16 percent more than the same period in2014.

The news was announced by regionalgovernment delegate Jose Luis RuizEspejo at an export event for small andmedium businesses in Malaga lastweek, which 400 people took part in.

Although Malaga is still sixth in An-dalucia for total exports, it registered amuch larger increase than Spain as awhole, where they rose 5.5 per cent, orAndalucia as a whole where they fellby 3.5 per cent.

Malaga’s ideal position within Eu-rope but near Africa and with relativelyeasy access to America, is helping it togrow in exports, Malaga City MayorFrancisco de la Torre declared, and therecession has encouraged local busi-nesses to look abroad for business in anaim to keep afloat.

WHEN the final date and the finalwording for what is known as theBrexit (British exit from the EU)referendum are revealed, undercurrent rules there will be a wholeswathe of British passport-holdersaround the world who will not beeligible to have their say.

The irony is that anyone who hasbeen out of the UK for less than 15years, no matter where they areresident now, will be eligible tovote, as will Gibraltarians who arerepresented in the EU by the MEPfor South West England, as well asCypriot, Ir ish, Maltese and allcommonwealth citizens resident inthe UK.

Anyone who is British-born butleft the UK more than 15 yearsago, however, will be denied thevote.

The Liberal Democrat party isnow proposing an amendment to

the Referendum Bill , al lowingBritish citizens resident in the EUto vote in this referendum despite

the fact that whilst in Government,they were opposed to such anamendment. The British Govern-

ment has itself proposed a ‘Votesfor Life’ Bill to let all expats votein perpetuity at general elections

but only plan to bring this forwardafter the referendum.

Some will argue that if peoplehave turned their back on Britainand have moved away, then whyshould they be allowed to try to in-fluence a final decision. But otherswould suggest that pensioners inparticular will have contributed andpossibly still do to the economyand if they have the right to returnto their country of birth, then theyshould also have the right to casttheir vote with regards to its future.

Time will tell whether this matterwill be reviewed prior to thereferendum but with an estimatedone million people affected, ifpeople are sufficiently interested,they could consider setting up apetition on the 10 Downing Streetwebsite Or they canwrite to each of the political partiesinforming them of their wishes tohave the democratic right to vote.

WINTER weather in Spain can vary fromyear to year and snowfall on the south coast isunlikely. However, if your car is parked out-side during the worst of the winter months,there are some simple steps you can take toprepare your car for winter.


Lights, heaters and wipers put high de-mands on the car battery and have to workharder in colder weather. If your battery isover five years old it may be time to shoparound for a replacement. Top up your wind-screen wash with a more concentrated mix ofantifreeze. Give locks and mechanisms aspray with WD40.

BEING PREPAREDMake sure you have a phone charger in the

car should you need to call for assistance. Inthe event you get stranded, there are someitems that will make a difference; carry someblankets, a folding shovel, jump leads, tow-bar and tow rope. If colder weather is forecast,make sure you have a full tank of fuel, as youmay need to keep the engine running to staywarm until help arrives. Check your insurance

policy covers you for emergency breakdownand recovery. Línea Directa provides for RoadAssistance in their car insurance policies. Thisensures that you receive immediate assistanceby phone 24 hours a day.

ROAD SAFETYDuring the winter, driving conditions can

become challenging. Winter tyres or coldweather tyres mean shorter stopping distances,reduce aquaplaning and improve handling.Road safety experts recommend 3mm of tyredepth as a minimum for winter driving.

WINTER DRIVINGBreakdowns are more common in winter.

For safe trouble-free driving we recommendgentle manoeuvres, as stopping distances are10 times longer in snow and ice. To avoidwheel spin, pull away in second gear, easingyour foot gently off the clutch. Maintain aconstant speed where possible, if you need tobreak, then do so gently and progressively.Leave plenty of room between you and the carin front. If you get stuck, straighten the steer-ing and clear any excess build up of snowfrom the wheels. Once your car is moving,maintain a constant speed.

By Declan ScanlanPABLO ISLA, the CEO ofSpanish fashion company In-ditex has been placed third inthe Harvard Business Re-view’s rankings of the mostsuccessful CEOs in the world.

The fashion company had anet profit of €2.5 billion forthe 2013-2014 financial year.With its net sales having risento €18.12 billion it is now thelargest clothing company inthe world by sales.

Isla, 51, is from Madridwhere he studied law atMadrid’s Complutense Uni-versity. The fashion CEO isnot the only Spanish leaderon the global rankings withtwo of his countrymen alsomaking the list.

At number 13 is the CEOof Spanish civil engineeringcompany ACS, FlorentinoPerez Rodriguez. InigoMeira, the head of construc-tion company Ferrovial , isplaced at number 51.

SUMMER can be a pricey season.Between holidays abroad, trips tothe beach and long lunches atchiringuitos, it’s possible you losttrack of your budget somewherealong the line.

But now that the evenings aregetting darker maybe it’s time tothink about reining in your spend-ing and using autumn to try and getback on track financially. Set your-self some instant saving challengesand get some money back in thebank, because before you know it,Chris tmas wil l be upon us andyou’ll be glad if you’re financiallyready and prepared.

Numerous studies show that peo-ple consistently spend more whenusing a credi t card, so why notconsider a credit card detox to getacquainted with your spendinghabits. It doesn’t have to be a long-term separation, simply try to livefor one month without using your

credit card. Credit cards can bedangerous because they are so con-venient. Whereas with cash, youare parting with a physical tender,so you’ll quickly notice when yourwallet is empty. A credit card detoxcan greatly help with cash flow is-sues, overspending and help reducethe cycle of debt.

One of the biggest drains to anyhousehold budget is the food-shop-ping bill. Yes, we have to eat, butthe next challenge is to try and cutthis usual spending in half.

Take a close look at the food youbuy and then for one month try andslash this bill in half. Stop buyingunnecessary food items like fizzydrinks, biscuits, cakes and choco-late. Your waistline will thank youfor it too. Commit to coming upwith a meal plan so as to buy on-ly what you need and reducewaste. And cut down onmeat, fish and diary,which tend to bemore expensivethan other items.

Using thesetactics, you cansave a loteach month.

And finally, get tough with your-self and have a ‘no spend’ month.For one month, buy only what youneed. While it may seem difficult,this challenge can real ly revealhow much you spend on your‘wants.’

It’s also a good way to exposeyour spending weaknesses, l ikeshopping when you’re bored ordepressed, or eat ing outwhen you’re stressed. Atthe end of the month,calculate your savingsand you’l l be guaran-teed your finances willbe better off.

By John SmithTWITTER, the highly successful so-cial media operation has announcedthat it will reduce its work force byabout 8 per cent which representssome 336 employees.

Jack Dorsey, the 39-year-old co-founder and now permanent CEO ofTwitter used more than the standard140 character message to advise hisstaff of his decision to streamline thecompany and gave an undertaking that‘We are doing this with the utmost re-spect for each and every person. Twit-ter will go to great lengths to take careof each individual by providing gener-ous exit packages and help finding anew job.’

It appears that the company is fi-nancially quite sound with profits re-maining steady, but they have beenunable to continue to encourage newusers and are being challenged bycompanies such as WhatsApp andSnapchat (who are also laying offstaff) hence the need to streamline.

As part of its strategy, it has ap-pointed former Google executiveOmid Kordestani as its new executivechairman.

AS a ghost-writer I might perhaps get lucky oneday. I will be invited to work on the humorousrecollections of a door-to-door salesman or lady ofthe night. Many people with a police, hotel, or en-tertainment background could possibly make moremoney by spilling the beans in a book.

There is much humour to be found in businessand many a true word is said in jest. Who sells thecheapest products, the manufacturer or whole-saler? The security guards do.

The employer was asked how many employeeshe had working for him. “Roughly half,” hereplied. Then there was the disgruntled employeewho protested that he was the only one being firedfor being caught sleeping on the job. His bossagreed but reminded him that he was the only onewho did so when sleeping with his wife.

We all know the Chinese make everything.A quick-witted wag retorted that the Chinesewall was the only Chinese product that lasted

more than four weeks.’Banks come in for some humour. The business

owner confronts his branch manager. “My chequehas been marked insufficient funds, you or me?”

The Spanish civil servant complained to her col-league. “Because of the recession the boss wantsus to do the same as three people. Thank God thereare five of us.”

Talking of Spain leads us to focus on the holi-day trade. The boss asks an employee if he likeswarm beer. The answer is an emphatic no. “Doyou like sweaty women?” Again, the em-ployee shakes his head. “Good,” theboss replies. “You take your holidaysin the peak of winter.”

A prospective employee wasasked why he had left hisprevious employment. Hereplied that the companyhad relocated but refused to tellhim where. Tax returns are said to bethe most popular fiction in the businesscommunity.

Shoppers bear the brunt of much jest. I am re-minded of the customer who complained that hisexpensively bought energy saving light bulb didn’twork. “It is an energy saver,” he was told. “It isn’tsupposed to work.”

AS far as I am concerned, anyone who can’taccept constructive criticism is either a fool oran insecure egotist. I have always welcomed it,and indeed am sometimes flattered that anyoneshould take the trouble to give their opinionand advice on my efforts as a columnist.

Then there are those who completely mis-construe my writing and send both myself andthe EWN sometimes insulting diatribes that Igenerally ignore. But not this time. The letterpublished last week fell perfectly into this lattercategory. It accused me of comparing ComradeCorbyn to Charles Manson. In fact, I did nosuch thing. I was actually comparing his AU-DIENCES with those of past cult leaders. Readit again and weep, Good Sir. Don’t worry, Idon’t expect an apology!

Then this week I received a missive from anardent Tom Jones fan, a lady who got my state-ments completely upside down. It was me whostated I would never dream of describing my

ex-wife as losing her spark. Not a Sir Tom re-buttal as you suggested. Although he did at-tempt a pathetic damage limitation exercise onThe Jonathan Ross Show by saying it was hiswife Linda who had made the statement andnot him. Another odious attempt to shift theblame and demean his wife even more. As forwriting on hearsay, I can assure you, madam,that I knew Tom well in the early years, shar-ing the same manager and occasionally thesame groupies! Our manager Gordon Millstragically died of cancer when quite young.

Gordon’s wife Jo was a beautiful person,who had a great deal of input into Tom’s earlyyears. I myself witnessed the sacrifices bothshe and Gordon endured while trying to launchhis early career. Jo died last year, virtually im-poverished, living in a London council flat. Atone stage she asked Sir Tom if he could helpher out. He ignored her and was, I understand,even heard to remark that he had Jo ‘on hisback’! He didn’t even bother attending her fu-neral. I know you’re a fan, love, sorry to disil-lusion you.

37OPINION & COMMENT 22 - 28 October 2015 / Axarquía - Costa EWN

WHO hired you, Leapy Lee, towrite an article about Tom Jones?Do you know anything about him atall, or are you working on hearsay?

Your second paragraph makes ab-solutely no sense. You describe hisstatement as unfeeling and self-serv-ing while he is saying he would nev-er dream of saying anything nega-tive about any of his ‘exes’. And heposted a separate statement sayinghe was misquoted. So which is it?What part of that sentence do younot understand?

I have been an unwavering fan ofTom’s since 1965. While his behav-iour in the public eye does not al-ways SEEM exemplary when itcomes to women fans, we are ALLtaking these out of context becausewho REALLY KNOWS what goeson in his day-to-day life?

Reporters and journalists, likeyou, can take a word, phrase, or sen-tence and spin it any way you wantto create sensationalism, eventhough it reads incorrectly.

Ginny, Ardent Tom Jones fan since1965

(Via email)See this week’s Leapy Lee’s col-

umn for his response.

Sour grapesRe: Tom JonesWELL. At least he was completelyopen and up front with his wife. Un-like Mr Pulleyblank who carried onwith his best friend’s wife in secret,and as he so eloquently stated, thetruth will out. Which it did. Thus re-sulting in divorce and a mess.

Sounds like sour grapes to me.Tom Jones can actually sing whichis more than one can say for Mr Pul-leyblank.

Too bad that Tom Jones took solong to rediscover his roots andbrought out the superb album ‘Spiritin the Room’, which Mr Pulleyblankdissed some years ago, and gave theinane and banal pop tunes a rest.

Jonathan(Via website)

Editor’s note: Forgive our igno-rance but we have not heard ofMr Pulleyblank before. Maybeyou could enlighten us.

Killer carsRe: Labour Day shootingsGUNS are not responsible for the10 deaths at Umpqua College onOctober 1 any more than cars areresponsible for the 395 deaths overthe USA Labour Day weekend thisyear.

That’s right, 395 men, women

and children were kil led overLabour Day in car accidents.

Why didn’t President Obamahold a press conference the day af-ter Labour Day, expressing hisgrief and anger over the senselesskilling of nearly 400 people on thehighways during Labour DayWeekend?

Keith (Via email)

Russian refugeRe: Mike WalshYES, Russia could offer a solutionto an overpopulated and overrunWestern Europe if the refugees wantto live under yet another dictatorshipbut those coming for asylum or inwhat seems to be the vast majority,economic reasons, Siberia may not

be the solution. You may be right in that much of

South-East Russia enjoys a temper-ate climate; however, I found thewinters in South-West Russia (As-trakhan) cold. We actually drovealong the Volga as a short cut. 

There may be parts of Siberiawith a reasonable temperature be-cause in the summer it is warm but ithas one of the greatest winter/ sum-mer temperature differentials in theworld. We drove across it in winterwhen it is an absolute must for thevehicles to be garaged with heatersunderneath to stop our diesel fromfreezing. 

However, people do live and workthere but it is tough and it will beworse for those people coming fromhot climates.

No guaranteeRe: Helping hands for expatsA GLOSSY guide which over-looks a significant failing in the re-liability of the Spanish Land Reg-istry.

In May 2015, homeowners’ as-sociations from across Spain failedin their bid to persuade the SpanishSenate to vote in favour of anamendment to the law regulatingthe Land Registry aimed at pro-tecting buyers who purchased ahouse with a clean bill of healthfrom a Land Registry search (NotaSimple) only to find that the prop-erty has planning issues or even ademolition order.

Current jurisprudence guaran-tees the rel iabil i ty of the LandRegistry EXCEPT when it fails torecord planning infractions.

39OPINION & COMMENT 22 - 28 October 2015 / Axarquía - Costa EWN

MY first experience of Halloweenwas in 1974 when I lived briefly inPennsylvania.

Sure I had heard about it, but inthose days it was not much cele-brated in the UK and was to all in-tents and purposes another one ofthose strange exclusively Americantraditions.

That’s not quite true, of course,because Al l Hal lows Eve as i tshould be correct ly termed, hasbeen celebrated one way or anothersince pre-Christian times. But theform i t now takes as a fun nightout for children is a fairly recentphenomenon.

So it came as an eye-opener toexperience firsthand the sight ofsmall kids dressed as wolf men andmini Christopher Lees ringing thedoorbell and demanding sweets or

face the consequences. I never did discover what those

consequences might be, becausethe f r iends wi th whom I wasspending the evening kept a large

dish of candy by the front door andseemed to revel in the wholestrange experience.

This pagan festival was hijackedby the Catholic Church and in the

ninth century All Saints Day wasmoved to its present date, in part totry and halt the spread of pagan-ism.

I don’t want to be stuffy aboutthis and spoil the fun. Neverthelessthe or ig ins of Al l Hal lows aresteeped in the pagan belief that thespirits of the dead revisit the livingevery October 31, and if gifts offood are not offered, then dire con-sequences will follow. Hence trickor treating.

Significantly October 31 ranksas only second in importance toWalpurgisnacht (April 30) in theSatanist calendar. And whilst mostmodern-day witches are just sillypeople getting their jollies dancingnaked at midnight and having unre-strained nooky, there are some se-riously bad and influential individ-uals out there practising the ‘truecraft.’ Something that came hometo me in a very rea l way manyyears ago, and not an experience Italk about now.

Suffice i t to say I worrythat Halloween has wrongful-ly been portrayed as a bi t ofharmless fun.

JOURNALISTS and columnists spin news withintent to influence public opinion. That is notnews, but boundaries are crossed when fiction ispeddled as hard news. In early October a frontpage story claimed, ‘Russian jet shot down byTurkish forces.’ It was a lengthy illustrated newsstory but the only true words; ‘NATO had re-ceived no reports.’

The story was not even speculative; it was fic-tion no more credible than Lewis Carroll’s Alicein Wonderland. Western mainstream media hassurrendered any pretence at objective reporting.Spin has been replaced by propaganda and blatantfalsehoods.

They’re worded clever; ‘MH17 was broughtdown by a Russian made missile’ with obviousinference of Russian being toblame. Failed stateUkraine usesRussian madem i s s i l e s ;thousands in the Middle East have been slaugh-tered by British-made weapons.

Predictably, most people now harvest informa-tion from the internet or non-Western sources.

What needs to be brought home to readers is thatmany journalists are directly or indirectly proxiesof government or special interest quangos. It isnot a new phenomenon. Journalism has alwaysbeen infiltrated.

There are MSM tricks that put you on yourguard. By learning them you become better in-formed and it can be an amusing pastime. If themessage is set between ‘inverted commas’ it isspeculation not fact.

Returning to the downed Russian jet story itleads with the startling revelation that, ‘accordingto unconfirmed reports on social media.’ So, ap-parently this is where Britain’s biggest sellingtabloid gets its front page stories from, Facebook.Now, that is not good news.

Another MSM ruse is, ‘it has beenclaimed.’ This is reporter-

speak for ‘I am clueless but here is my spin on it.’The source of a story is either undisclosed or

ambiguous. ‘The information was given on aguarantee of anonymity.’ An alternative is, ‘USofficials said this week.’ There are millions ofUS officials; may we at least have a department?Watch out for ‘one journalist tweeted.’ Whichjournalist?

There is good news; despite MSM anti-Russianrhetoric, 70 per cent

of people back Russiain its war against ISIS.

DESPITE MSM anti-Russian rhetoric, 70 per cent of people back Russia in its war against ISIS

Harmless Halloween fun? PAGAN belief that the spirits of the dead revisit the living every October 31

NOT that many years ago, theonly way that the public andpress would know about thecontents of a politician’sspeech would be if there wasa leak but nowadays, the con-tents of almost every speechis released 24 hours or morebeforehand.

This does raise the questionof whether the speaker needsto bother to physically deliv-

er the speech as the contentwill already have been dis-seminated, debated, com-mented upon and dissected onthe plethora of ‘rolling news’stations around the world.

Perhaps this is a veryclever ploy to allow politi-cians in particular to eithergain the benefit of a positivereaction, defuse any negativereaction or even give them-selves time to prepare any de-fence in advance or changethe content of the speech if ithas been received very badly.

The last budget speech byGeorge Osborne was pub-lished in full by newspaperson their websites, before hehad even completed hisspeech in Parliament whichdoes rather suggest the Britishpress is more important andpowerful than the Membersof Parliament who are requiredto vote on it, perhaps becausewith a decent majority, anyvote is simply a rubber stamp.

We talk about free speechin the West but this might bea step too far and even if it is-n’t, it takes both the excite-ment and the human elementaway from the old stylespeeches by fluent orators.


Now we want to

hear your views.

Page 40: Euro Weekly News - Axarquia 22 - 28 October 2015 Issue 1581

SCORPIO(October 24 - November 22)With a lot of pent-up energy and not alittle determination the month is off to astrong start with you. Be aware,however, that treading on the toes ofinfluential people is not to be advised.Your feeling that you are right isadmirable, but be tactful.

SAGITTARIUS(November 23 - December 21)You of all people understand theimportance of the spiritual side of life.Despite being successful in your ownright there is the need to bring this toother people. In sharing yourexperiences this year you come to abetter understanding yourself.

CAPRICORN(December 22 - January 20)Your practical streak is in full force.Over the next months you will bringmuch benefit to those around you, infinancial terms perhaps, but alsospiritually. This week, in itself, showsyou how others value your presence andadvice.

AQUARIUS(January 21 - February 19)Your lot is to be optimistic and positive.Perhaps in the last few months there wasthe need to take on the problems ofothers. However, you absolutely must geta balance here. Concentrate this week ongetting your body and mind in goodshape. That means being a little self-centred to start with. A good routine isessential and the will to stick with it.

PISCES(February 20 - March 20)Your very nature can lead to internalstruggles. In the coming months,however, the truth becomes clear. What isoutside of your experience now willbecome a part of your make-up. Any fearthat you had of the unknown graduallydiminishes.

ARIES(March 21 - April 20)There has been a very strong feelingthrough these last few weeks. This feelinghas been one of spirituality. Your thoughtshave been deeper than usual and the

sense that there is more to life is acute.This, therefore, gives an impetus toeverything that you do this week. Theneed to progress both on the home andbusiness front has rarely been stronger.

TAURUS(April 21 - May 21)In the last few weeks there may havebeen a sense of being not quite in control.That is something to deal with this week.Real progress will only be made whenyou have faced what is not wanted. Youwill rid yourself of any negative emotionsquickly by facing them.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)You are a great charmer but it is possibleto have too much of a good thing. Is therethe possibility that your romantic lifeneeds tidying up? Perhaps the number ofirons that you have in the fire is causingproblems? This week, make it a priorityto simplify your life. Be strong andstraight with others. A clean slate for thefuture means not letting small matters runaway with you.

CANCER(June 22 - July 23)The ever-inquisitive part of your brain isin high spirits. Clearly there is much tobe known and enjoyed over the comingmonths. Begin at the beginning though.Before you throw yourself into aspiritual or business endeavour, get thefacts. I don't mean what people tell youthey think. What you need right now isproof that your interest in a certain areais justified.

LEO(July 24 - August 23)Certainly there have been times that youfelt crestfallen. Sometimescircumstances bring us down. Avoidbelieving in the myth of ‘what shouldhave been’. What you are is not whatothers see but what you feel inside.Success does not depend upon yourbank balance but rather more yourspiritual progress.

VIRGO(August 24 - September 23)The changes that have already started inthe way that you see your life havegiven pause for thought. You are surethat you could have done better butmaybe it is not clear how. Take a stepback now and see where you came from.Two years ago where were you heading?Do you still want to follow that path? Aneed to get back on track can start thisweek.

AT this time of year being in a busy fit-ness environment can be tricky, as youare consistently exposed to large groupsof people in an open-plan, sweaty envi-ronment. People are breathing particlesinto the air that are being blown aroundby huge extractor fans or air-con units.

Throw into the mix the fact that al-though the gym is (I would hope) cleanedthoroughly twice a day, there is a hugeamount of traffic coming through over thecourse of 16 hours. Gym equipment is be-ing handled by everybody, and in turn canpotentially lead to one big germ fest!

That said... it’s not my intention to leadyou all into a state of germ paranoia ei-ther. Bear in mind that our 21st centuryobsession with clinically clean and 99 percent germ free isn’t necessarily a goodthing. Ironic, I know, but it has been sug-gested that it has in fact contributed toweakening our immune systems.

A couple of years ago, I got two reallynasty colds within a month of each other.They lasted for around three weeks, pro-gressed to my chest and resulted in an an-noying lingering cough and me having tocancel clients and take time off work.

Being self-employed, I was none toopleased. A month later my system had notquite recovered fully, thus leading me in-to my second cold. That was i t . . . I

thought enough was enough and em-barked on a mission to strengthen my im-mune system, which at this stage was tak-ing a hammering.

I had already been dosing myself upwith a drink concoction of cider vinegar,fresh lemons, honey and ginger but at thisstage it had become a case of ‘after thehorse has bolted’, so I knew I had to workon getting better and then rebuilding myimmune system.

Ever since using these products I havehad maybe two minor colds that lasted nolonger than a few days. If you use a largegym always carry a small hand disinfec-tant in your kit bag, and avoid touchingyour face or mouth when using fitnesskit.

Some people’s immune systems arenaturally stronger than others, but take in-to account the fact that stress, lack ofsleep, poor diet, excess alcohol, smoking,and excess partying can affect you too.

THIS week, Doctor Luis Perez Belmonte replies to areader’s questions on peripheral neuropathy:

• Our reader (name supplied) wrote:Sir, I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in 2011.

I am not diabetic, other blood tests are all within range formy age, 73. I was prescribed Gabapentin, then changed toPregabalin. Dosage 150mg in the morning, 300mg at night.

Alcohol aggravates it so I do avoid it, anything acidic al-so makes it worse. The pain is now beginning to travel upmy ankles and lower leg. When speaking to doctors itseems not much more can be done to help, and it is some-thing I must live with. I am fairly active, do gardening andplay golf. I would like to know your thoughts.

Kind regards

• The doctor replied:Dear patient: There are many causes of peripheral neu-

ropathy. Diabetes mellitus is one of them, but many othersshould also be ruled out as it is often an early sign of illness-es which can appear months or years later,.

Gabapentin and Pregabalin are used to treat the symp-toms and alleviate pain. Doses vary and must be adapted tosuit the individual; therefore, I would recommend you see aspecialist in Internal Medicine to have your dosage adjustedif the medication isn’t helping.

In addition to these, there are other treatments which canbe used along with hygiene and foot-care and diet. It is truethat alcohol and certain foods can make it worse so if youknow what your triggers are, keep avoiding them.

Although it is indeed a chronic condition which cannotbe cured, if the exact cause is unknown tests should be car-ried out to try and find what has started the neuropathy.

Physical exercise helps so it is great that you have an ac-tive lifestyle.

Peripheral neuropathy is a complex condition and diffi-cult to evaluate. I hope my comments are of use.

SPECIALIST: Doctor Luis Perez Belmonte.

WANT to l ive a longer l i fe? Thenkeep smiling.

A study that was carried out over 30years, believed to be the first of itskind, found that miserable people ofall ages were 14 per cent more likelyto have died sooner than those whowere happy, regardless of income,health or marital status.

Those who told researchers theywere ‘not too happy’ were also an av-erage of 6 per cent more l ike ly to

have d ied a t any g iven t ime thanthose who said they were ‘pretty hap-py.’

Scientists from the University ofNor th Caro l ina in Amer ica asked30,000 men and women up to 30years earlier questions to determinetheir level of happiness and then ac-cessed death record databases to seeif there were any links between theanswers given and the likelihood ofdying in the following decades.

I t i s be l ieved one of the reasonswhy happier people live longer is thatthey are better equipped at handlingstress and have a strong network offriends.

The researchers said their findingsshould lead to authorities discoveringways of making people happier in ad-dition to improving a population’seconomic standard of living, accessto medical care and healthy behav-iour.

Flying with pets has become amuch more common practiceANIMALS must be microchipped and have a valid pet passport

WITH more and more people owningproperties in Spain and spending alarge part of their year here, pet travelhas increased dramatically, with own-ers preferring to bring their animalswith them rather than leave them athome for any length of time.

Pets accompanying their owners ona trip to Spain can be accepted as lug-

gage when the corresponding excessbaggage tariff has been paid (regard-less of the class in which the passengeris to fly).

As a general rule, these animalsmust be checked in and loaded into thehold of the aircraft, where they will beplaced in a container (which some air-lines can provide) but to be on the safeside it is worth purchasing your owncarrier which is IATA approved (andwill have a sticker or label stating this).

As only certain airlines and airportsin the UK have the facilities to trans-port pets (BA and Monarch being themain carriers), when making a book-ing for you and your pet, check firstthat the necessary transport can bearranged.

Animals must carry the correct doc-umentation, either with a pet passport

or veterinary certificate or with all re-quired vaccinations (in some countrieswith an evaluation of antibodies). Allanimals are identified by a microchip,and you need the correct documenta-tion for this.

Preparing pets for travel can be alengthy business, with all the healthchecks, documentation and pet pass-port. So if you are thinking aboutbringing you pet into Spain make sureyou leave plenty of time to make thenecessary arrangements. You can findmore information on the Pets TravelScheme (PETS) for the UK

Guide dogs trained to accompany apassenger with a disability will usual-ly travel in the cabin, unless prohibit-ed by national regulations or theairlines.

FOURTEEN per cent of dogowners and 33 per cent of catowners in Spain share theirbeds with their pets, a surveyby Houzz home improvementwebsite has revealed.

Yet the habit was far lesspopular in Spain than in othercountries, the survey re-vealed. In the US, 41 per centof owners questioned admit-ted to letting their dogs sharetheir beds.

More than 10,000 peopleacross the world, 550 of themin Spain, were included inthe survey which concludedthat cats are far more likelyto rule households than dogs.

Another conclusion of thesurvey was that pets are goodfor both children’s and adults’health with the most com-monly mentioned benefits be-ing the happiness they bringto individuals (82 per cent)and families (65 per cent) andtheir help in controlling

stress-levels (50 per cent).In Spain, 76 per cent of

those questioned admitted tohaving set aside an area oftheir homes for their pets toeat, sleep and play and 28 percent said they had carried outbuilding work to adapt their

homes to their pets’ needs.When asked for the nega-

tives, 76 per cent of ownerssaid the worst thing abouttheir pets was the hair theyshed, 36 per cent complainedabout smell and 30 per centabout extra dirt.

I AM often asked ‘Oh, wheredid you get that plant from?’and to be sure I ask the samequestion from time to time ofothers. And it was often notfrom the local nursery! So wehave compiled the followinglist of potential sources incase it helps other gardeners.

1. Nurseries where theypropagate most of the plantsthey sell. Often they havestronger and less expensiveplants than garden centresthat only import their plants.

2. Garden centres wherethey tend to buy most plantsin, but we are careful not tobuy over forced plants full offlowers. Better to have just afew buds open. Also we lookout for plants that have beenacclimatised after arriving

from hot houses.3. Weekly markets

especially when supplied bysmall growers. Often a goodsource of vegetable seedlings.

4. Rastros but not always ata plant stall. Interesting plantsseem to pop up on all sorts ofstalls including antique stallsand they are normally for saleand not for decoration.

5. Agricultural co-operatives especially for treesand vegetable seedlings.

6. Horticultural shopsespecially for seeds, bulbsand vegetable seedlings.

7. Flower shops often sella few unusual plants for thegarden or containers, as wellas house plants that can oftenbe grown on a coveredterrace. Look at the pavementdisplays and you may spotsomething unusual.

8. Supermarketsespecially for house plants,but search out a strong wellcared for plant with plenty of

flower buds.9. Swaps with friends as

spare plants raised from seedor cuttings.

10. Plant sales at localgardening clubs. Often a goodplace to look for something alittle different and normallyinexpensive.

11. Raffle prizes atgardening clubs. If you’relucky they are just what youwant. If not they make a goodgift next time you go out fordinner.

12. Verges of roads orpavements. Some well rootedseedlings of succulents,lantanas and trees can befound under overhangingtrees or planted walls. Ourtwo strongest mimosa treescame from this source.

13. Local garden rubbishbins or informal tips. Lookout for healthy irises,succulents and cacti. Whatyou’re looking for to fillcorners of a new garden may

be just what someone with anover planted mature garden isthinning out.

14. Waste grounds anddisused quarries, especiallyclose to the sea wheremigrating birds can dropseeds from north Africanplants.

15. Neighbours about tobuild an extension or pool.Often if you don’t ask theywill be bulldozed into a skip.

16. From mail ordercatalogues especially forroses, bulbs, special shrubsand vegetables.

17. Restaurants and CasaRurales. You may be able tonegotiate a cutting or seedsfrom something different thatyou spy. And no one can stopyou taking away a few seedsfrom tasty local heritagetomatoes that were in thesalad!

18. Jobbing gardeners whopropagate to obtaininexpensive plants to fit into

the gardens they care for orlandscape and to sell thespares to passersby.

OPINION & COMMENT22 - 28 October 2015 / Axarquía - Costa Tropical www.euroweeklynews.comEWN50

SPAIN’S National Police have warned ofthe latest scam circulating through socialnetwork sites offering free vouchers for Ikea.

Consumers are invited to complete a briefsurvey in exchange for a €150 voucher tospend in the furniture store, but this is noth-ing more than a scam. Ikea themselves havebecome aware of the problem and have alsocirculated a warning through their own sites.

The aim of the scam is to extract personalinformation which could be used for fraudu-lent means. If you come across anything likethis, the advice is to not submit any data andto report the post through the social networksite’s own reporting procedure.

Signs on bendsDirectional panels are placed in addition

to the warning signs, and let drivers know

how sharp a bend is, allowing them to makethe correct decision to reduce their speed.

Whether there is one, two or three signsdenotes the severity of the bend and there-fore how much the driver should slow down.

The directional panels are located at thestart of the bend. They must be visible atleast 100m away from the driver and arethere to warn you of the oncoming turn.

Most importantly they are there to warnthe driver of the speed at which they can takethe bend safely. This speed is at least 15kman hour lower than the speed at which thedriver is approaching in line with the legalspeed limits.

If you see one panel, you need to reduceyour speed by 15-30 km/h. If you see two,you need to reduce your speed by 30-45km/h. Finally, if you see three panels youneed to reduce your speed by more than45km/h.

In principle theSpanish govern-

ment has declared that allofficial residents are enti-tled to Spanish healthcare.In practice they often denyapplications and people

must go to court. I suggestyou consult a Spanish

‘Graduado Social’ who isa specialist in Social Secu-rity.

Be advised that your oc-cupational pension mustbe taxed in Spain, as youare a tax resident.

My wife and I have had residencecertificates in Spain since 2013. I re-

cently managed to join the AndalucianHealth Service through the ‘Convenio Espe-cial’ scheme, where I pay €60 a month. Iwill not reach retirement age in the UK until2018, when I will be entitled to free health-care in Spain. I am not employed but I re-ceive an occupational pension, which istaxed in the UK.

My wife is younger and has worked part-

time as an English teacher for the last twoyears. She received state healthcare as anemployed person but at present is unem-ployed. Unfortunately, she has a chroniccondition (MS) which requires expensivemedication, not covered by the Convenioscheme. My understanding of other advice isthat she is entitled to free healthcare simplybecause she has a residencia certificate.

SLOW DOWN: Bend ahead.

WHEN I was younger... much younger... Iused to get up, get dressed, have some sort ofbrekkie and go off to work. If I needed to tellsomething to someone during the day I mightcall them from a phone box (rememberthem?).

I didn’t work in an office in those days, Iworked in markets. If I received a letter I’dread it and, when I got round to it, I’d answerit maybe a few days later. If it was in a brown,official-looking envelope I might not evenread it!

So here we are many years later and howthings have changed. Now when I wake up Icheck my email to see how much Dr Umgoo-goo has got for me today. Those Nigeriansare so generous!

I answer all the real emails immediatelyand my day has started. Ping! My WhatsApp

goes, my i-message goes and then my Skype.OK, now I have to stop what I’m doing to an-swer IMMEDIATELY! This is because wehave moved into the ‘Right Now’ era. Nownot only does everyone know you have re-ceived their message or WhatsApp but thatyou have READ it and you haven’t answeredit!

Why haven’t you answered it the minuteyou read it? An hour goes by and you stillhaven’t answered it. By now I have the righthump. Why are you ignoring me? Why won’tyou answer my urgent enquiry into how youare (smiley face)?

My daughter will WhatsApp her mum andif she doesn’t answer within five minutes shewill WhatsApp me to see if her mum is OK.If I don’t answer, for whatever reason, shewill phone me to make sure we both haven’tbeen wiped out by some horrific accident on-ly to be told we are fine and are in Aldi tryingto work out what a HoffleKoffle cake is (itlooks chocolatey so that’s OK). We even sit athome and pick up our phone to check no-onehas messaged us and we missed the ping.

Sorry, got to go, someone’s WhatsAppingme and I need to reply immediately!

MOTORING54 22 - 28 October 2015EWN Axarquía - Costa Tropical


PART of the fun of the different motorshows is the unveiling of different conceptcars which may or may not ever hit thestreets and the forthcoming Tokyo MotorShow promises some unusual exhibits in-cluding this latest concept from Toyota, theKikai.

After one wades through all of the wordsin the Zen-like press releases which concen-trates on the beauty and harmony of design,it is quite apparent that the designers havehad a great deal of fun whilstgaining inspiration fromscience fiction movies.

Whilst it is easy tomock the ‘puff,’the actual conceptitself is very inter-esting and relies onthe use of com-pressed hydrogen

which can be generated from a wide rangeof raw materials, and is easy to store, mak-ing it a promising future energy source.

In addition to the vehicle’s own hydrogentank, the car can also generate electricity di-rectly from hydrogen stored outside the ve-h i c l e .

The vehicle can thus be transformed into astable source of electric power for use athome or away.

The fuel cell stack is mounted betweenthe front tyres, and the hydrogen tank be-hind the rear seat. Together with the adop-tion of independent in-wheel motors in all

four wheels, this allows for a spa-cious cabin despite the vehi-

cle’s compact vehiclebody.

This concepttakes the ma-

chinery - normallyhidden beneath

the vehiclebody - andmakes an

open displayof its beauty.

TESLA has launched a soft-ware update for its vehicles -enabling the cars to have an‘autopilot’ mode.

While not fully self-driving,the software means the ModelS and new Model X can ‘au-tomatically steer down thehighway, change lanes, andadjust speed in response totraffic.’

Tesla chief executive ElonMusk said “It should not hitpedestrians, hopefully. Itshould handle them well.”

He added that if the car isinvolved in a collision, the dri-ver is still liable.

THANKS to its athletic andsporty design, the new C-ClassCoupé which looks stylish on theroad and embodies modern lux-ury is now available to orderwith a starting price around€35,500 and delivery expectedin December.

As is normal with most cars,

the basic price can easily rise de-pending upon the extras re-quired, but the manufacturerconsiders that this latest versionoffers a high level of suspensioncomfort, low road roar and tyrevibration, agile handling, anddriving pleasure.

As the sportiest variant of theC-Class, it has a striking front

section featuring diamond radia-tor gril le and long bonnet. Ahigh belt l ine and framelessdoors with free-standing exteri-or mirrors underscore the sportycharacter as does the suspen-sion, which is 15 mil l imetreslower than that of the Saloon,and features 17-inch tyres asstandard.

Powerful and efficient four-cylinder petrol and diesel en-gines with ECO start/stop func-tion provide for sportyperformance and driving plea-sure. All are compliant with theEuro 6 emissions standard andcompared with their predeces-sors they consume up to 20 percent less fuel.
