    Nationwide cooperation agreement signed with Brit-

    ish EmbassyFrom Front Page.... The new agreement aims to im-

    prove the quality of life for the most vulnerable expatriates, and their ability to access Red Cross services. It also seeks to encourage people in the British community to volunteer for Red Cross activities and promote collaboration with other British com-munity associations.

    The partnership, which was signed on Monday 21 September at the headquarters of the Red Cross, will be piloted in the province of Ali-cante, which has a large British com-munity. The aim is then to extend it nationwide, enabling British commu-nities across Spain to access Red Cross services and become involved in their projects.

    Simon Manley said: People in the British communities have a wealth of experience and skills, and I really hope that this new partnership with the Red Cross will encourage more people to volunteer their tal-ents and support for the benefit of others.

    The agreement will also help to ensure that British expats in the Alicante region have easier access

    to the wide range of Red Cross re-sources, which can improve their quality of life.

    Javier Gimeno added: We have identified a large number of British people in our province who, because of their age and health, may require Red Cross services such as adapt-ed transport, accompaniment and home telecare. Our aims are to in-spire members of the British commu-nity to volunteer for the Red Cross and to encourage those who require assistance to take advantage of our services.

    Pamela Twissel-Cross, welfare officer for the Royal British Legion, who attended the signing, comment-ed: Im really looking forward to working more closely with the Red Cross as it will give me a chance to help British nationals get additional support.

    It will also be a chance to learn and find out more about what is available so that together we can support the most vulnerable.

    The signing ceremony was at-tended by representatives of a large number of English language asso-ciations in the province of Alicante including: Age Con-cern Costa Blanca Sur, the Royal British Legion, the Samari-

    tans, the Royal Airforce Association, Help at Home, International Resi-dents Daya Nueva, AFA Torrevie-ja, MABS Cancer Support, Help at Home Mar Menor, and the HELP groups in Denia, Benidorm, Jaln Valley, Vega Baja and Mar Menor.

It is the first of many planned acquisitions by us as we move to further consolidate our business footprint in the expatriate marketplace Barry Floyd Manag-ing Director of Golden Leaves Inter-national.

    Dear ReadersSimply amazing are the words for my description of the fan-tastic September weather. Having guests here during the month of September is always a joy as the sun is shinning and the warm days and cooler nights provides a comfortable and fresh feeling. The towns along the coast are busy with holiday makers and we can already see the high number of long term visitors returning for the Autumn months ahead.

    We have been busier than ever with a fully packed newspa-per with useful information about the local events and gener-al information on the places to visit, shop and an abundance of food and drink outlets for you to enjoy.

    Myself and the team at the Buzz newspaper and Heat FM radio have worked during the weekend hosting the 5th In-ternational charity fair last Sunday. We had the pleasure of the British Consul together with the local mayor of Benidorm who both came along to give their support and gratitude to the many volunteers giving their time and dedication to the many charities. You can read this full story on pages 32 & 33.

    The arrival of Vicky Locklin our star presenter at Heat FM has been busy moving house something that most of us dread the thought of having to do, but for the benefit of our listeners

    Vicky will now be on air live every week day from 12 to 3pm with the Brighter Lunch. So please tune in to 90.3 for Marina Baxia and also 106.8 covering the North Coast of the Costa Blanca from Calpe to Denia.

    SURVIVOR RACEHave you gotten bored with running? Craving something a little different?

    Let the Survivor Race get your adrena-lin pumping again! Running through mud, over obstacles and whilst weighed down all await the daring participants of the planned Survivor Race happening in three locations later this year. The first is the 3rd of October in Benissa, the 14th Novem-ber in Parcent and the final is the 5th De-cember in Moraira. Make the most of your Spanish surroundings, by running past them!

    Boot camp style running courses are very popular in the UK at the moment, and have started to come over to Spain. Fol-lowing the success of last weeks colour run in Benidorm which in-volved completing the course whilst being pelted with coloured chalk, the Survivor race is sure to go down a storm! All of the Survivor Races will be round local courses but involve obstacles designed to slow you down and make you smile!

    Mackenzie Hopson is one of the run-ners and is part of a team with her friends for charity named Make A Smile Junior Warriors. Mackenzie is looking forward to the race and said Being able to compete in the upcoming Survivor Race in Benissa is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Creating the Team Make A Smile Junior Warriors for this race was a way for us to challenge ourselves and also challenge others to GIVE. Raising aware-ness and support for Make A Smile is really important to me. Helping these kids on the costa Blanca should be important to all of us. Training is hard; running around, jump-

    ing, climbing and carrying sacks (some of it up on the farm in Relleu!) we are also asking others in our community to focus on how they can help. We are asking peo-ple to sponsor our team of Junior Warriors that have signed up for the Survivor Race and donate much needed funds so that at the end of the race not only will we have completed a personal achievement, but also achieved something far greater for those kids! Our team is made up of friends

    that have given up their own time during the school year and sum-mer holidays to work up on the self-sufficien-cy project in Relleu for Make A Smile

    The event is being organised by Span-ish company Survi-vor-race.es and is designed to test your

    endurance, strength, agility, concentration and intelligence.

    In previous races there have been mud pits, wall jumps, swinging rings (over wa-ter no less), running up hill with sandbags and even some obstacles that are on fire! Thats one way to make you sweat! The circuit itself is created by ex-servicemen Richard McEnery who works at Aventura Fitness Centre in Teulada as their head strength and conditioning coach.

    The top three competitors in the events will be awarded for each category with the traditional gold, silver and bronze. If this sounds like your idea of hell but youre craving a bit of scahdenfreude (laughing at the missfortune of others) then you can sign up as a volunteer for the events. If however this sounds like your idea of fun, register now to avoid disappointment at www.survivor-race.es

    SPANISH AIRPORT STRIKE PLANNEDFollowing a summer of disruption

    for travellers in and out of Spain, air-port staff have this week announced two more air traffic controller strikes for September 26th and October 3rd.

    The USCA (Unin Sindical de Con-troladores Areos Union of Air Traffic Controllers) has planned the strikes to both happen on Mondays between 4am to 4pm which will halt all work happening at Spanish airports causing interference for anyone flying on or around those days. Al-though this event is confirmed through the unions, AENA have yet to comment.

    These two 12 hour strikes are said to be in protest of the disciplinary sanctions placed on 61 air controllers in Barcelona back in 2010. The air controllers were

    accused of paralysing airspace, which caused over 200,000 passengers to be-come stranded.

    Following this event, many of the controllers were accused of abandoning their posts, however at a tribunal af-terwards, it was agreed that a high majority had actually not d i s o b e y e d their em-ployers nor abandoned their posts,

    according to the Spanish Air Traffic Con-trollers Union.

    Airlines said to be most affected by these strikes will be Easyjet and Vueling however anyone using Spanish airports

    should expect delays. The last strike just over five years ago caused 600,000 va-cationers stuck just ahead of a national holiday and the Spanish government were forced to call in the army to take over con-trol towers. The planned strike promises to cause less interruption due to the small-er 12-hour windows.

    The strikes are being carried out at Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Majorca and the local airport, Alicante. These addition-al two dates of strikes follow a summer of disrupted travel due to strikes in France, which caused a knock on affect for many travellers. If you think these strikes could affect you, speak to your airline now for travel advice.One of the Airports going on Strike - Madrid Airport

    The Heat was on for the fifth International Charities Fair that took place last Sunday. HEAT FM Spain hosted the entertainment live on air with their usual great music and fantastic competitions. Heat FM also took the op-portunity to speak to the charity organisers throughout the day as well as being able to interview the Major of Benidorm Toni Perez and the British Consul Sarah-Jane Morris. The pair both officially opened the event at mid-day to a large crowd. Sarah-Jane said Its very hearten-ing to see so many here, to support those volunteering.

    The Mayor made his speech, which was followed by pupils from the European school in Alicante and the Cruz Roja volunteers who sang a number of songs much to the crowds enjoyment. The Consul and Mayor walked around the stalls talking to the charity workers and ex-hibitors too.

    The event took place next to the very busy Rastro El Cisne held every Sunday and was organized by Pame-la Dawson Tasker who showed that the local charities and associations from across the Costa Blanca can be brought together with a display of support that means so much to the people living in the area.

    Martin Kyme, project manager for Emaus spoke with the Mayor and British Consul about the collection tins that are being used around the area as the charity has ap-pointed Buzz Media (owners of Heat FM Radio and also the Weekly Buzz newspaper). Martin explained working with the Buzz newspaper is fantastic because the charity gets regular public awareness and coverage of the many

    events we have organised to promote the fund-raising for the many childrens homes. Both the mayor and consul thought the project was an ideal way of creating an independent and regu-lar income for Emaus. Together with the backing of Buzz Media and the Benidorm Series, Martin has secured a solid foundation for the charity fund raising ap-peal named the Euro a Month

    Owner Mar-co Baiardo and radio present-ers Ian Oogley and JB from the popular Heat FM Double Trouble Breakfast Show had photos with the Mayor Toni Perez.

    The consulate team and the Vice Consul, Lloyd Millen were there to talk to ex-pats about any issues they had and offer advice. Heat FM radio also interviewed the stall holders and met the charity organisers which included:

    Benidorm Samaritans, The Lions Club, The Royal British Legion, Cruz Roja, AECC Cancer Charity, Help International and Alzheimers.

    The sponsors of the event was IMED Levante, Berger & Dozetst Lawyers and Z Black. The U3A were responsi-

    ble for the very popular traditional English Tea shop.A great day was had by all with plenty of sunshine and

    money being raised by the many charities taking part.

    GIVING4GIVINGMy names Gary Burr and I founded Giving4Giving three years ago. Were a Cancer Support Charity with a char-ity shop in La Nucia and have recently opened another in Altea.

    Not only do we raise funds from the shops to support local cancer charities but hold different events to raise money, fash-ion shows, bike rides, dog walks, cabaret shows to name a few and have raised and donated 33,340 euros since opening

    We normally give the money to char-ities on the Costa Blanca but when one of our volunteers said she would help or-ganise a MacMillan coffee morning, we decided to break with tradition and make a donation so went along and gave them 500 euros from G4G.

    It turned out to be a fantastic day

    and all the la-dies worked very hard and should be very proud as I believe they raised 3.000 euros and we were only happy to help out as much as we could. We have a few more events planned for the rest of the year and would love to be able to raise 40,000 euros by the end of the year.

    In order to carry on the good work, we rely on donations and always need volun-teers, so we appreciate the kind, generous people living on the Costa Blanca to con-tinue their support of Giving4Giving. To donate, please ring 603 137 697

    WINNING AUTHOR FROM THE US TO TALK FOR THE 4TH YEAR RUNNING

    by SPENCER WILLIAMSDr Jack Pransky PhD, international speaker, author and consultant, will lead a potentially life transforming evening

    presentation entitled Free Yourself by Look-ing at the True Source of Problems in Albir on Fri-day 2nd October.

    Dr Pransky has been in the field of prevention for over 40 years, preven-tion meaning prevention in crime, addictions, fami-ly dysfunction, community problems and so on.

    In 2001 his book, Mod-ello: A story of hope for the inner city and beyond, received the Martin Luther King Storytellers Award for the book best exemplifying Kings vision of the belov-ed community.

    The book is a true transformational story of 2 inner city housing pro-jects replete with violence, crack, drug gangs, abuse, welfare dependency and hopelessness. It describes how they were completely turned around within two-and-a-half years and how people who lived in the most difficult circumstanc-es were reached, came to find hope and changed their lives.

    It is the Principles that were shared within these communities that raised their self-esteem, well-be-ing and common sense

    that Dr Pransky will be sharing in his upcoming

    presentation on the Cos-ta Blanca. K n o w i n g how these p r i nc i p l es work is ben-eficial to everyone.

    Dr Pran-sky has been sharing these Prin-

    c ip les via his train-ings, books, counseling and consulting for over 20 years now and is an expert in the field. Hence the 6 month professional training course that begins in Albir on 3rd October and ends in April 2016 is sold out again!

    Most of the participants attending the flagship pro-fessional training are flying in from the UK, and others from the US, France, Den-mark, Sweden and Norway. This is the 4th year the course has taken place in Albir bringing in much ap-preciated tourism and has put Albir on the map as an international training centre and venue for events.

    Dr Pransky says I love coming to Spain to deliver these trainings. Swimming in the sea and trekking in the mountains are 2 of my favourite past times both of which I manage every time I visit the Costa Blanca. It really is a privilege to be able to combine my work and pleasure, long my it continue!

    KLEIN-SCHREUDER SCULPTURE GARDEN

    by SPENCER WILLIAMS

    It is one of eight museums in the town of Alfaz del Pi. It is managed by the Klein Shreuder Foundation (non-profit), and is located near the city center. The outdoor museum is fascinating, with over 20,000 square meters with more than 2,400 plant species ex-hibiting 19 fixed sculptures, mostly by Antonio Mari, a well-known sculptor of the Marina Alta as well as other Dutch and German artists.

    In 1996 two young Pensioners Johannes Klein and his wife Johanna Schreuder bought some 20,000 sq meters of neglected orange groves, designed to house and built

    it on the land.Then Johannes designed the layout of the garden

    and Johanna selected Appropriate trees and shrubs, dead fruit trees were removed, the land plowed and some 800 meters of garden path laid, at this Point the neighbors began to wonder if a new airport was under-way!

    During the next 4 years 400 rose bushes, 100 palm trees, 60 ficus elastica trees, 400 cypresses, 1000 privet bushes and much more were planted shaping the beau-tiful garden you can visit today. Johannes and Johanna decided that they did not want to keep the garden just for themselves, but wanted to share its beauty with the public so they founded the Klein-Schreuder Foundation Communicidad Valencia in 2003 who continue to run the museum today.

    The Museum welcomes the Autumn after a very hot summer period and had reopened its doors to visitors, although this museum is not free it costs 3 which is surely worth it which is technically a donation as it goes towards the maintenance of this wonderful garden, The park is open to the public on Sundays from 10.00 to 14.00 hours Groups are welcome on week days by pri-or appointment only.

    MOORS AND CHRISTIANS FESTIVALMoors and Christian (Moros y Cristianos) Festivals are held in many towns and cities throughout Spain but most predominantly in the southern Valencian Community.

    The festivals commemorate the battles which took place for the control of Spain during the period known as Reconquista (from the 8th to the 15th century).

    The Moors and Christiansfestival in Altea started on Saturday 19th and goes on until Tuesday 29th Septem-ber 2015.This picturesque town is an easy drive north of Benidorm, around 10 minutes along the N332.

    Although the festival has already started and the decorations are up, you havnt missed to much as the

    celebrations really get started from 25th Sep-tember. Sunday is the main day of celebration the opposing forces of Christians and Moors parade through the streets dressed in impressive costumes, painstakingly created for the occa-sion. The costumes of the Christians comprise of fur,leather and armour while the Moors wear Arabic-style clothes with swirling scimitars and axes. All accompanied by marching bands play-ing rousing music reminiscent of the period.

    Mock battles then ensue that everyone has a great time although the ending is of course the same each year! As you might expect, just like any Spanish Fiesta worthy of the name, there is food, wine and of course fire-works.

    We have provided a schedule of the key events, for a full list visit Altea.es or email us [email protected]

    BAR OWNERS CAUGHT DRUG DEALING

    Agents of the National Police in the operational plan against trafficking of narcotics have disabled a drug retail operation in the town of Benidorm.

    Specialized in the fight against drug trafficking agents found two bars where owners were not just selling drinks.

    The premises were frequented by people constantly arriving on both foot and by car and within minutes were seen

    leaving the establishments without even having a drink. The bar owners seem to have been using the premises as a front for the drug operation.

    Upon searching the premises agents found 1422 euros, various tools for drug sales and various narcotic substances in-cluding cocaine, marijuana, speed and pills.

    meters, working alongside the operators of the blue zone, they hope to have charg-ing points at all parking meters in the future.

    Z a r a t e made the an-nouncement on Clean Vehicle Day, which is part of the Internation-al Week of Mobility but m e n t i o n e d that they would not

    reach the proposed 20 charging points at present be-cause currently it is not necessary since there are not many electric cars in Benidorm. However, as the popu-larity of electric vehicles increases the number of charg-ing points shall be increased.

    Next to the phone booth and with any parking meters that will be equipped with the service will have a space reserved for vehicles wishing to use this service.

    SPAIN IS NOW AT THE TOP OF THE PROPERTY INVESTMENT MARKET

    by CRIS WEST

    2015 has seen Germany pinched at the post as the top investment target in Europe by Spain, meaning that proper-ties in the Costq Blanca area have nev-er been more lucrative. A recent poll by Knight Franks has found that 27% of 150 investors who were questioned selected Spain as their preferred investment for the next 12 months. This poll shows that estate agents all over the area will also start to see an influx of buyers as well as increased properties being listed. This is a great time to find your Spanish dream home!

    These statistics are echoed by the increase in visitors to the Costa Blanca region as well which is estimated to have risen by 40%. Footfall at local events and shopping centres in the region has also seen a significant increase over the last

    consecutive six quarters. Estate agents around the Benidorm area have also re-ported increased enquiries as they have found that Costa Blanca properties are some of the fastest to recover.

    Just behind Spain in the poll is fel-low European Union member Germa-ny with 25% of investors selecting there to invest. This is likely following the 30 billion invested in property during 2015, however property in Spain has shown a quicker and higher increase and a faster turnaround in the market as well. Wheth-er youre looking for a small townhouse, a private villa, a city center flat or a beach side bolthole, there has never been a better time to make your Spanish dream become a reality. The statistics also show that rental properties are being snapped up all over the region as more people are

    choosing to have a Spanish home on the side. Renting a property in Spain is a great way of testing out the area before making the leap; so choosing a long-term rental might be your best option.

    Trailing way behind in the investors poll was Poland, France, Russia and the Nordic Regions, all of which scored less that 10%. Spain has suffered drastically recently with following the credit crunch and market crash which halted the prop-erty market all over the region. Still now, if you drive around certain areas in Spain, youll find half built roads, derelict houses and uninhabitable flats as the crash came after a property boom, meaning many new and exciting properties were planned but quickly halted. However more and more signs are coming out that the market is turning around and finally on the rise signi-

    fying the importance of making an invest-ment to ensure your own affluence.

    The UK again featured strongly in this years poll, attracting 17.4% of the votes, on the back of the continuing recovery which has now extended to the UK re-gions. Despite this, year-on-year there is a higher level of British becoming expats in Spain, and many choose to use a lo-cal estate agent to find their dream home. Property in the Costa Blanca not only gives you the security you need with buy-ing a home abroad but you can enjoy the Spanish sun, absorb the local culture and live the Spanish dream. Spanish proper-ties have never been a better investment; estate agents in the area will work with you at every step of the way to find you the dream Spanish home.

    REVIEWIts all change for Britains best selling van. The Transit is so popular it ac-counts for almost one in five of all new vans sold and has become the level by which other vans are judged. So get-ting it right with this new generation Transit is crucial.

    But what exactly is the Transit Custom you may be asking? Well in order to differen-tiate the r a n g e , Ford is sp l i t t i ng the Tran-sit line-up. So the s t a n d a r d one tonne model is now re-n a m e d T r a n s i t C u s t o m while the bigger two tonne mod-els will remain Transit.

    Both share the new Ford kinetic de-sign styling though. Weve seen it on Ford cars like the latest Focus and the adoption onto vans has worked surprisingly well. The Transit Custom certainly has a more upmarket appearance than the previous version, athough it has lost some of its an-gular and tough charm.

    Interior quality is a big step up with a similar cabin to the Ford Focus and im-pressive levels of refinement. Its com-fortable with a forgiving ride while the 2.2

    TDCi engine is quiet, even at motorway speeds. This is one van its a pleasure to spend time in.

    Short and long-wheelbase models are available, the former of which has an over-all length of 4.97 metres and the latter 5.34 metres. The loadspace is designed to ac-commodate 6.0-cubic metres with a full

    bulkhead fitted, meaning it can carry three Euro pallets loaded to 1.0-metre high.

    The space between the wheel arches is best in class, allowing for 8x4ft board to be load-ed flat to the floor. There are double cab versions available and

    a useful Kombi minibus variant which can carry nine peo-ple. Its a good alternative to the more ex-pensive Ford Tourneo Custom.

    The Transit Custom has set a new benchmark in the van market. Its streets ahead of the competition in every aspect and is easily the most car-like of pan-el vans, both in terms of driving and re-finement. Yet it remains as practical and cheap to run as ever making it quite simply the best van you can buy.

    Visit to Country Ribs in Albir located directly on the beach front with stunning views across to Calpe. Ideal for the whole family Country Ribs is very popular with the kids, as an American Diner they love the taste of the most famous ribs, and burgers.

    The menu choice offer something for everyone and some of the most popular dishes are the ranch style chicken and the juicy steaks the menu has much more and also a selection of their specialities with six great COMBOS. The variety is amazing my choice was the COUNTRY RHAPSODY this caught my eye as it includ-ed Hungarian Goulash together with a mixture of Chicken, Lamb, Spare Ribs and Pork Kebabs. The metal dish that served the food was huge and was filled with the sides of potato wedges and chips. I can honestly say the amount of food in the COMBO was enough for 3 or 4 people. Being meat lovers this combo was perfect, lamb chops cooked over the BBQ together with the Chicken breast, the spare ribs and ke-babs made the display of meat was simply incredible not to mention the dish of Hungarian Goulash strategically positioned in the centre of the display.

    My guests ordered a variety of other popular meals, grilled chicken, cheese and bacon burger and the star of the show was the full rack of baby back ribs with a choice of 4 tasty sauc-

    es. The size of the rack of ribs simply amazed me it took over the plate, served with the Jack Daniels & Coke sticky BBQ sauce. The meat was falling off the bone and was perfectly cooked complemented with the tangy original JD & Coke sauce a smokey but sweet BBQ flavour.

    Our bench style table had plenty of space to sit our group of five adults plus the attachment of a high chair to the end of the table that was clamped in place by the very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant was taken over by families so it was great to see that there was no shortage of high chairs and the mums and dads could enjoy their meals while the smaller ones were also takin part at the table.

    Country Ribs have been situated in Albir for many years and has built up their reputation for the quality of food in a relaxed American style diner. Call them to make a reservation on 966 865 597

    Mushroom Risotto

    Preparation1. Soak the porcini mush-rooms in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain well. Heat the oil in a large, heavy based saucepan and add the onion and gar-lic. Fry over a gentle heat for 2-3 minutes, until sof-tened. Add the chestnut mushrooms and fry for a further 2-3 minutes, until browned.2. Stir in the rice and coat in the oil. Pour in the wine and simmer, stirring, until the liquid has been ab-sorbed. Add a ladleful of the stock and simmer, stir-ring again, until the liquid has been absorbed. Con-tinue adding the stock in this way, until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is plump and tender.3. Roughly chop the soaked porcini mushrooms and stir into the risotto,

    along with the parsley, but-ter and salt and pepper. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan.

    WineSmooth dry Italian whites such as Soave and Gavi work well. If the mushroom content is predominantly porcini try an aged Italian red such as Barolo or vin-tage ros Champagne.

    Ingredients1 tbsp dried porcini mush-rooms2 tbsp olive oil1 onion, chopped2 garlic cloves, finely chopped225g/8oz chestnut mush-rooms, sliced350g/12oz arborio rice150ml/ pint dry white

    Nuevo SigloCalle Pau Casals 1, 03581 Albir,

    Treated a little like a childReviewed 16 September 2015Quality of food at this restaurant is first class as is the service, the only draw back I found was that I didnt appreciate being told twice that I had ordered too much food.I know that the staff were trying to protect me from ordering too much but shall I say that no food was wasted and the serving plates were cleared of the portions served. All in all it was not a bad experience but please allow your clientele to choose their own food levels and try to stop holding their hands, we are not children to be made to feel guilty.

    Lovely authentic atmosphereReviewed 12 September 2015We chose duck with pancakes and a prawn hot sizzling platter both were delicious friendly service and excellent value for money excellent location just on the beach.

    Great food for reasonable priceReviewed 3 August 2015Highly recommend this place. Good food, good prices and good service. We ordered 6 different things from the menu and the all met our expectations. We had to children with us 7 and 11 and the really enjoyed the food too.

    Leading up to the next James Bond ad-venture, Spectre, theres been a lot of talk about the latest in a long line of memorable theme songs. We only recently learned that British crooner Sam Smith will lend his pipes to Writings on the Wall, as the tune is titled. At the time of print Sam had only released a teaser of the new song on his Twitter account but the single is to be released worldwide on September 25 through Capitol Records and the film it appears in will be released October 26 in the U.K.

    This is one of the highlights of my career, Smith said in an earlier statement confirming his involvement in the project. I am honored to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song. I am so excited to be a part

    of this iconic British legacy and join an incredi-ble line up of some of my biggest musical inspi-rations. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I enjoyed making it.

    Smith unveiled this snippet, and it really is just that, on his Twitter account on September 21, and while there isnt a ton to dig into here, this does give you a taste of whats to comeIt does sound rather like what you expect the theme from a James Bond movie to sound like. There are soaring strings, swooning move-ments, and the whole affair is quite dramatic in nature overall.

    Visit the HeatFM Facebook Page from Friday to listen to the song

    Could this be the dislike button?

    Whether you love it, or loathe it, Facebook is here to stay. Our kids are on it and our grandpar-ents are on it, we make plans on there and we keep in touch on there, but Facebook is in for a big change, and how will it be perceived? Mark Zuckerberg, Face-books chief executive announced on Tuesday that they are working on a dislike button, how-ever it wont be used in the same way to the cur-rent like button. He has specified it is to be used to pass on empathy when you see a bad or negative post. For example, if your Facebook friend posts about feeling stressed or the unfortunate loss

    of a family pet, like and comment will no longer be your only options to pass on your sympathies through the World Wide Web.

    The announcement sent the cyber world into a frenzy with suggestions about Facebook spread-ing negativity and being more able to cyber-bully with this new one-click disapproval. Others sug-gested that it would make Facebook a darker so-cial media; who wants to post a picture of their cat

    if they thought it was go-ing to be disliked?

    Zuckerberg has, in the past, said that they would always stay away from a dislike

    button, for fear of the similarity to Reddit (a media sharing site), which uses up and down thumbs to allow users to vote how popular an item should be. What they really want is the ability to express empathy. Not every moment is a good moment, said the so-cial media mogul during a Q&A at the Facebook headquarters. The new button hasnt been given a launch date yet, but was promised it will meet the needs of the larger community.

    PISCES

    SCORPIO (Oct 24th-Nov 22nd)

    Youre a bit emotional this week, so youll be reticent about taking chances in the love zone, and rightly so. Money and finances however, are a different ball game all together and luck seems to be on your side when it comes to cold hard cash.

    SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23rd-Dec 21st)

    Your capacity for hard work has been noted by superiors, so dont be surprised if youre approached by bosses, and offered promotion. Think long and hard about this, as someone else wants to head hunt you and could offer you better conditions.

    CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd-Jan 20th)

    Now that youve patched up recent petty squabbles, youll be getting on well with everyone. Youll even back down from an intense point of view you had and will meet others half way because youve made a compromise. Things now go to plan.

    AQUARIUS (Jan 21st-Feb 19th)

    Surround yourself with the right people this week and youll have everything you need to make an impenetrable force field, where by working as a team youll all make fantastic inroads into your individual and collective long term hopes and dreams.

    PISCES (Feb 20th-March 20th)

    Your deep need to be the centre of attention this week is verging on the obsessive, so work out why its so important to you, as you may be doing this for all the wrong reasons. Youre socially prominent at the weekend, but that comes naturally.

    TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

    If youre considering a career change, theres no harm in looking at various professional opportunities. You could do anything you turn your hand to, but its how it makes you feel, and how long youre away from family thats the deciding factor.

    GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

    It may be slow, but at least youre making some sort of forward progress over work and home matters. Dont be sucked in by seductive illusions socially, or you may find yourself trapped in a corner unable to break free gracefully.

    CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

    If you find others to be resistant to your plans and ideas, its not necessarily the ideas they dont like, but maybe more how youre putting them across. Let them know youre not willing to take any financial risks and they may come around then.

    LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

    Dont take anything or anyone for granted this week, especially where travel plans are concerned. A change of scene would do you the world of good, especially if you take a lover or close friend with you. A few days would be ideal.

    VIRGO (August 24th-Sept 23rd)

    Take time out of your busy schedule to broaden your mind in areas youd never bothered with in the past. Start by digging deep within yourself and work out what makes you tick. Be honest with yourself or theres no point in doing this at all.

    LIBRA (Sept 24th-Oct 23rd)

    Youll thrive on professional challenges this week, and like a dog with a bone, youll take a specific course of action and wont let go until you get what you want. Try to be more flexible when it comes to home and hearth though. Its important.

    ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

    Relationships and friendships come under the microscope this week, so if youre looking to form a better rapport with someone, you couldnt get a better time to start the ball rolling. Just make sure your aims and aspirations are realistic.
