Simplifying Spanish legal terms
WHEN you talk and discuss the law here in Spain, it’s important to understand what we are talking about! The law is complex and the wording can sometime seem like gobbledygook, even for a lawyer. So let’s try to simplify a few terms. Technically, the system applied by Spanish Law is called “continental system”, which […]

UK food production and jobs threatened
PRODUCTION of popular British foods such as apples is being threatened drastically following tougher controls on measures to tackle weeds, disease and pests. A new report, commissioned by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU), Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) and Crop Protection Association (CPA), studied the economic impact of plant protection products (PPPs) on UK agriculture and […]

SAD sufferers’ light relief
SCIENTISTS believe they have identified the underlying reason why some people are prone to the winter blues, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD). People with SAD have an unhelpful way of controlling the “happy” brain-signalling compound serotonin during winter months. Brain scans reveal that as the nights draw in, production of a transporter protein ramps up […]

Lung-cancer victims are given fresh hope
LUNG cancer can remain dormant for 20 years before it is triggered into an aggressive form of the disease. But new research by scientists has renewed hope that a new discovery will lead to earlier detection. At the moment, two-thirds of patients are diagnosed with advanced forms of lung cancer, when treatments are less likely […]

All dressed up for Halloween, but no witches
WITH Halloween just a week away, I am sure people will be starting to think of what to wear, especially if they have kids. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article regarding children and dressing up – and how children’s themed outfits such as Disney Princess have become just as popular for adults […]

THIS isn’t my view but about choice … to cover white hair or to leave it natural? So many women go through this decision when the first few white hairs start to wave at them from their scalp. It takes just a few to inflict any man or woman with horror. It’s a sign that […]

The nippiest old banger around . . . at 205mph!
EVEN if you were desperate for a set of wheels and were offered this old banger for a few quid, you’d hardly be queueing up for it. Yet this 47-year-old Volvo Amazon estate is probably the most unique car in Britain because, as its owner says: “It’s the fastest road car in the land.” Car […]

New driving-licence law on way
CHANGES in the laws regarding driving licences will be implemented on 20th January 2015. At present, if you are stopped by the Policia Local or Guardia Civil and fined for not having a Spanish licence, you may appeal this fine and Tráfico have assured us this will be quashed. However, once the new laws have […]

Tenerife Osa unlucky
Osasuna 3 CD Tenerife 2 MAYBE the players are reading this column? Last week I wrote: “This is the weekend for the players to play for the shirt. To summon the strength. To give it their all. And dare I say it? To play without … Fear!” And boy, did they do all of the […]

Top guns move into position
IT’S deja vu at the top of the Direct Telecom Pool League’s Division One – I bet you knew I was going to write that! There was a feeling that a few teams would challenge the “big two” but it doesn’t look like happening. Phoenix Potters were one of the contenders, but they seem to […]
