Brocheta de pollo al romero (Rosemary chicken skewers)

Brocheta de pollo al romero (Rosemary chicken skewers)

As the folks at La Laguna Ahora explain, "This recipe is ideal for an informal meal, we saw it in Oliver’s Twist and we could not resist trying it, with a really delicious result. The rosemary chicken skewers are very tasty, prepare a good portion because you are going to love them." We assume they're referring to Oliver’s With A Twist in Los Cristianos, so making this yourself will tide you over while you wait to get a booking. 

Ingredients
3 filleted chicken breasts
12 slices of bacon
1 lemon
1 head of garlic
1 sprig of rosemary
black pepper
olive oil and salt.

Preparation: Start by preparing the marinade, grate the lemon rind without reaching pith, de-leaf the rosemary, peel the garlic cloves and put all the ingredients in a large mortar, add black pepper and salt and crush well. Add olive oil and mix well.

Cut the breast fillets into strips about two fingers wide and place them in the prepared dressing, leave to marinate for a minimum of half an hour.

Cut the bacon slices in half lengthwise. Prepare two or three skewers per person, depending on how much you load them. To do this, take a strip of chicken together with one of bacon, skewer it at one end, fold the chicken and bacon and skewer again. 

Repeat the operation until all the ingredients are used, then, on a grill or griddle, pour a little oil from the marinade and grill them by turning them so that they brown evenly.

Free Culturarte Tours in Puerto de la Cruz on the occasion of World Tourism Day

Mural in Puerto de la Cruz. Image: WebTenerife

To mark World Tourism Day, on September 25 and 26, 2021, FREE 'Culturarte' routes will be held in Puerto de la Cruz (leaflet in English): two in the morning, one from 10:00 to 12:00, and another from 11:00 to 13:00, and in the afternoon from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. To sign up for these routes, a prior reservation is essential by calling 922 378 400 ext. 3512, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, by email to pfaegjturismoseguro@gmail.com, or directly at the tourist information points located in the Lago Martiánez, San Telmo, Calle Quintana, Plaza del Charco, Old Port and Plaza Mequinez.

PFAE Safe Tourism

The PFAE-Gj Turismo Seguro Puerto de la Cruz 2020 (PFAE-GJ Safe Tourism Puerto de la Cruz 2020) project is developing various free interpretive routes to publicize the value of the history, culture, gastronomy, and commerce in the municipality of Puerto de la Cruz.

The CulturArte route, which has been developed since July, starts from the Castillo San Felipe and runs through the heart of La Ranilla district, with various stops, to discover its history, culture and street art through its murals. “We highlight various anecdotes and symbols, customs and traditions of the neighbourhood, its people and the importance in the municipality throughout history,” stated councillor and head of Culture, Marco González.

The routes are being adapted to an audio guide format, in Spanish and English, and to a virtual format. They are also adapted and targeted to the group to which they are directed, being able to be of benefit to all, from kids to the elderly. 

Is a project that began last March as a Training Program in Alternation with Employment through which 15 young people complement their learning to obtain the Level 3 professional certificate in Local Tourism Promotion and Visitor Information that enables them in the profession of tourist informants and / or promoters. "During these months, more than 2,500 people have been attended at the information points and the route has been made for some 170 people from different groups," said Councillor for Employment María Jesús Hernández

The program, which lasts for nine months, contemplates the theoretical-practical training of this group of young people for 1,315 hours and they receive a training and apprenticeship contract. It is a public employment and training program for young unemployed people without specific training in a profession. The initiative is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the Canarian Employment Service, within the framework of the National Youth Guarantee System of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, and is executed by the Puerto de la Cruz City Council.

In addition, the students offer information on the resources, services and tourist products of the municipality, while they are in charge of informing residents, visitors and tourists about the program of celebrations, events and the activities that are going to take place from now until the end of the year. These actions are carried out in the areas of Playa Jardín, Castillo San Felipe, San Telmo, Calle Quintana, Lago Martiánez, La Paz and the C.I.T. 

Arona Gran Hotel reopens its doors today

Arona Gran Hotel

Today is the day chosen for the reopening of the Arona Gran Hotel. The establishment, which had to close its doors in March 2020, returns with news for all its customers, who upon their return will be able to enjoy renovated facilities and completely new spaces.

Time has not been wasted in this year and a half of closure, which has been used to improve some hotel facilities, such as the change of floors in the common areas or the replacement of railings with glass to improve the views of the sea; But new spaces have also been created, such as the expansion of the Up! terrace, located on the roof of the building, which adds a new cube-shaped pool that gives the impression of floating above the sky; and new concepts, such as La Champaneria, which offers 25 sparkling wines from around the world for the most sophisticated customers.

But without a doubt the biggest novelty is its new idea of ​​No Reception. The traditional counter at the hotel entrance is eliminated with the idea of ​​being closer to the client through digitization and personal relationships. The client no longer has to go to the reception for everything, they can be attended to in the place they want, and for that they will have the Hello Spring app from where they can check in, book activities or contact individually with the staff of the hotel, which will ensure that the client does not miss anything during their stay. 

Severe poverty soared by 49% in the Canary Islands in 2020 to affect over 373,000 people

Stock image of a homeless human. Most people in severe poverty (95.2%) have homes.

The Canary Islands is the community with the highest percentage of severe poverty 

Severe poverty grew by 49% in the Canary Islands in 2020 and affects 373,665 people, 16.5% of the total population of the archipelago, 132,285 more people since the start of the pandemic in 2020, according to data collected by the European Network for the Fight against Poverty and Social Exclusion in the Spanish State (EAPN-ES) in their second report 'The Map of Severe Poverty in Spain: The Landscape of Abandonment'.

The archipelago grew more than five points in one year and positioned the autonomous community as that with the highest percentage of its population in severe poverty, ahead of the Valencian Community and Asturias, with 13.4% and 12, 2% respectively.

In the country as a whole, a total of 4.5 million people in Spain (9.5% of the population) live in severe poverty in Spain and 72% of them are Spanish.

The Living Conditions Survey (July 2021), places the income threshold to consider that a household is in severe poverty at 6,417.30 euros per unit of consumption per year; that is, each person must survive on less than 281 euros per month in the case of a family with two adults and two minors, and with less than 535 euros per month if they live alone.

EAPN Spain recalls that with this budget, these people have to cover all their needs, so the main difficulty is having to choose between eating or maintaining an adequate temperature at home, between culture and nappies or between having a computer or shoes.

Regarding the profile of people living in severe poverty in Spain in 2020, the document reveals that 72% are Spanish, many of them with a medium (53%) or high (17.9%) educational level and, in addition, with work (27.5%) and with a home (95.2%).

14% OF CHILDREN LIVE IN THIS SITUATION

Furthermore, the study reveals that 14.1% of girls, boys and adolescents (aged 17 or under) live in this situation, a figure that contrasts with 8.6% of the population as a whole.

Another of the data highlighted in the report is that 12% of the people who live in households with minors are in a situation of severe poverty compared to 7.1% of those who live in households without minors; and that 21.5% of the people living in single-parent households (mostly headed by women) are in a situation of severe poverty.

By territories, the Canary Islands, the Valencian Community and Asturias present the highest percentages, ranging between 12.2% and 16.7% of the total population living in severe poverty. In absolute values, the highest correspond to the communities with the largest population: Andalusia, which has more than 980,000 people in severe poverty, Catalonia and the Valencian Community, with 702,000 and 674,000 respectively.

EAPN concludes in its report that after a year and a half of the pandemic, the signs "reaffirm the social bias of the disease", both with regard to the possibilities of contagion and the "profound economic consequences" that it produces among the poorest population.

Specifically, it points out that people who live in poverty eat worse, have more diseases, are more obese, exercise less, live in underfunded or small homes and most of those who manage to work do so in jobs that require face-to-face activity.

The president of EAPN-ES, Carlos Susías, stated during the presentation that in order to face this serious situation of poverty in Spain, tools such as the Minimum Living Income (IMV) must be assessed, and highlighted some aspects improvement.

IMPROVE IMV COVERAGE

"The amount of the Minimum Living Income must be improved by placing it above the poverty threshold, as well as its coverage, so that it reaches all the people who need it, especially, those in situations of greater social and economic vulnerability," he said.

Head of Political Advocacy and European Affairs, Graciela Malgesini, pointed out that, in view of the report's data, "poverty is the result of political decisions, inequality and injustice."

"Its elimination is achieved through a high level of social protection, with effective and generous resources, universal public services and quality employment. And it is guaranteed through gender equality and the fight against all forms of discrimination," she stressed.

EAPN-ES warns that the social and economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic will remain and continue to affect the most vulnerable population groups, so it is committed to extending the social protection measures implemented to deal with the social and health crisis.

Pata asada canaria: Canarian roast leg of pork, recipe adapted to the home oven

Canarian roast leg of pork, recipe adapted to the home oven Directo al Paladar

Anyone who has been to the Canary Islands knows one of its most popular dishes, oven-roasted pork leg, similar to the mechá meat of Andalusia but with an unmistakable flavour of spices and aromatic herbs. As this dish is normally made with a whole pork leg, today we are going to make Canarian roast leg, adapting the recipe to the home oven, and to a medium family size (serves 6). Of course, you can adapt the recipe to larger quantities, calculating between fifty minutes and one hour for each kilo of meat. 

Ingredients:

Lean piece of leg of pork 1.2 kg
Fresh rosemary to taste
Coarse salt
Ground black pepper
Black peppercorns
Fine herbs
Extra virgin olive oil

Method:

Start by making diamond-shaped cuts to the skin of the pork leg. Cover the leg with coarse salt and leave it in the fridge for about two hours. After that time, take it out of the fridge, bring it to room temperature and remove the salt.

In a mortar, crush black pepper, fresh rosemary, aromatic herbs and seasonings to your liking. Spread the pork leg with olive oil and paste this mixture of spices on the surface.

Bake for one hour for each kilo of meat at 200º. If using a whole leg or a 3 kg piece for example, protect with aluminium foil after one hour of cooking so that it does not burn. If you use a kilo-odd piece as here, an hour and a quarter is enough, without the need to cover.

Allow the meat cool in the oven once switched off - it will take an hour or more - and then wrap it in aluminium foil and place it in the fridge to cool fully for two hours. 

Canarian roast leg of pork is excellent both cold and hot and can be eaten as an aperitif, as a cold meat, to make sandwiches, and of course also as a main dish, heating it with the juices from the roast and accompanying it with wrinkled potatoes or cooked rice.

The lava advanced at 4 meters per hour and last night it travelled only 15 meters

La Palma volcano Edge of lava estimated by ACO (1)

The PEVOLCA Steering Committee, which was attended by the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska and the President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Victor Torres, insisted on prevention as a security measure, since the La Palma volcano is alive and the island continues in an emergency situation, at red alert. Currently the lava advances at 4 meters per hour and last night it only travelled 15 meters. For scientists it is not feasible to redirect the lava and no action can be taken in this regard. [Did somebody try?]

The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, announced today that evacuated people who are in the shelter will be transferred to a hotel in Fuencaliente during the day, while people with reduced mobility will go to a social health centre. The intention of the authorities is to keep the shelter only as the first point in case of new evictions and to continue studying the housing alternatives for people staying in family homes.

The authorities recalled the need to let the emergency services work and stay outside the exclusion radius of 2.5 kilometres from the emission centres (vents) recommended by scientists to minimize the risk of impact from pyroclasts and exposure to gases of the volcano. It is also necessary to stay away from lava flows in the event of possible landslides and high temperatures, in addition to taking extreme precautions against falling ash.

The affected area currently covers 140.44 hectares, with a front of 600 meters. The technical director of PEVOLCA, Miguel Ángel Morcuende, stated that the volcano is still active, releasing lava, and the two flows continue to advance, but very slowly, due to the increase in viscosity and because it is filling in the natural holes of the terrain that is to be found in its path. Mathematical models indicate that it will continue to advance, but it cannot be guaranteed that it will reach the sea.

Morcuende explained that there is only one fissure, with 9 vents or emission centres, although not all are active. There has been a small movement of the lava that was standing in the southern area during the night, but minimal and there is no variation from the previous night. Last night there were several explosive episodes that may continue, although the deformity has not grown and remains at 28 centimetres. According to Morcuende, it is a time of mini stability, but is not known how long it can last.

Regarding the measurements of sulphur dioxide, he indicated that they do not reflect a danger to human health. The plume is at 3,000 meters of altitude. 

Scientific Comittee

The report of the Scientific Committee indicates that the eruption continues to show the same fissure eruptive style, with a strombolian mechanism, in a fissure in a NW-SE direction. Yesterday the main broadcasting centre had a phase of greater explosiveness that intensified at 7:00 p.m. (local time), reached its maximum at 9:00 p.m. and ended coinciding with the partial collapse of the upper part of the cone today at 2:00 a.m. local). In the last hours, a decrease in the average advance speed of the front of the lava flow has been observed to values ​​of 4 m / h. continuing its advance towards the sea.

It reaches thicknesses between 8 and 15 m. Seismicity continues at low levels. Today at 01:25 (local time) an earthquake of magnitude 2.2 mbLg, felt with intensity II, was located. The estimate of the emission rate of sulphur dioxide (SO2) into the atmosphere by this eruptive process during yesterday was between 6,140 and 11,500 tons per day. These values, although correctly measured, are underestimated by the large dimension of the sulphur dioxide plume observed by satellite. The emission of materials reaches 3,000 m according to the Toulouse VAAC.

The volcanic tremor signal shows a tendency to decrease in amplitude at seismic stations, probably due to the concentration of strombolian activity in a smaller number of centres. Likewise, it is found that the deformations have decreased their speed, showing relative stability in the last 12 hours. The deformation measured by the INSAR technique shows an average cumulative maximum of 28 cm.

Regarding meteorological information, the anticyclonic situation continues, with winds from the northeast from the surface up to 3000 meters, with intensities around 20 - 30 km / h (decreasing with height). On the west slope affected by the eruption, the breeze continues to predominate, that is, westerly winds during the day and downward mountain winds at night. The most significant thing is the turn of the wind from north / northeast to west increasing its intensity at this level from 5 km / h to 10-15 km / h, during the next morning at the level of 700 hPa (3000 meters approx.). This factor will influence the movement of ash to the east of La Palma. It is ruled out that any precipitations registered during the next 24 hours are acidic. 

Work is continuing on the numerical modelling of the extent of lava flows and the monitoring of the advance rate of lava flows and their extent. In addition, the daily monitoring of the emission of sulphur dioxide (SO2) from the eruptive foci is continued by means of remote optical sensors mounted on helicopters and the chemical composition of the plume by means of multigas sensors. Ash sampling and washing is done regularly. Field inspections and drone observations are underway.

It is possible that explosive episodes such as those that occurred yesterday (09/21) will be repeated. Given the large thicknesses of the lava flow observed in some points, collapses of its face can occur which, in steeper areas, can lead to the formation of large fragments of lava flow, which can detach from the face of the flow, suddenly reaching distances of several meters from the pouring face, depending on the topography. Also in steep areas, small pyroclastic flows can occur.

If the lava flows reach the coast, the scientists warn that the interaction of the sea with the lava could generate columns of water vapor with acid gases, detachment of the lava front, and the emission of fragments could be produced in the vicinity of the contact (fragmentation snapshot and emission of ballistic fragments). In this sense, the continuous monitoring of the activity has been reinforced and any significant changes observed will be communicated.

Santa Cruz de La Palma opens donation centre for persons affected by the volcano

The Council of Santa Cruz de La Palma has enabled a municipal donation centre in the annex of the Pabellón Multiusos Roberto Rodríguez Estrello pavilion (Cam. Velachero, 38700 Santa Cruz de la Palma), for donations of basic necessities for people who have been evicted from their homes by the volcanic eruption and that will remain open, indefinitely, from Monday to Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

In addition, an information point for volunteers will be established to channel all resources and contributions from citizens, visitors and companies directly through the teams that are managing the response on the ground.

Organizations that serve affected people, say that non-perishable food, personal hygiene products, towels, new underwear (only accepted with purchase labels) and masks are urgently needed. Also, warm clothing for adults, infant food and products for people with celiac disease, lactose intolerant and without sugar. It will continue to inform promptly of changes in needs and all donations will be received and forwarded to the agencies that care for people relocated or in vulnerable situations.

The team reports that they are receiving multiple messages, from different parts of the country, from individuals who want to help. However, the emergency situation make it necessary to organize, centralize and channel the resources in the municipality to take care of them the needs of the people who are going through this terrible situation. 

The entire government team is working on several long-term municipal measures to support the needs of the affected people and recall that, "from the first moment, we've made all the facilities and municipal resources available to the management team of this emergency, and that personnel, especially the Local Police and Civil Protection, have turned to contribute to guarantee the safety of the people and the proper functioning of the operation".

ACCOUNTS FOR FINANCIAL DONATIONS

Likewise, for people and companies that want to make financial donations, the Council recalls that the Cabildo de La Palma has enabled several channels in order to centralize contributions. The bank account number authorized to formalize national donations through bank transfer is ES47 2100 9169 0122 0017 9456, while in the case of international donations it is CAIXESBBXXX. In addition, people who want to make their donation through Bizum, must access the 'Send donation' tab and enter the code 03747.

El Paso and Los Llanos de Aridane councils have also set up bank accounts for this same purpose. The one in Los Llanos is ES06 2100 1921 1902 0014 1752, while El Paso has two, which are ES26 2100 7109 3122 0015 5652 and ES57 3076 0480 6710 0761 6723. 


Likewise Centro Comercial Meridiano in Tenerife (Av. Manuel Hermoso Rojas, 16, 38005 Santa Cruz de Tenerifehas set up its Information Point as a place to collect donations for people affected by the eruption of the volcano in Cumbre Vieja, on La Palma. Meridiano, in collaboration with the NGO Sonrisas Canarias, will collect and send all donated products to the affected families.

While the Tenerife employers' association, CEOE-Tenerife, has opened a solidarity account to support the victims of the volcanic eruption, in which any company can contribute its help through the following account ES48 3058 1302 6327 2001 1896.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2016

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2016, Cecilia Navarro Arteaga

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2016 was Cecilia Navarro Arteaga in a costume entitled, "Arena blanca del desierto" (White Desert Sand), designed by Daniel Pages and representing McDonald´s and La Opinión de Tenerife.

In 2016, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Flavia Martínez Álvarez, with a costume entitled "Eva" (Eve), representing Autoinsular Citroën and designed by Daniel Pages.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Priscila Medina, with a costume entitled "Desde Italia" (From Italy), representing Radio Club Tenerife and Centro Comercial Añaza Carrefour and designed by Santi Castro.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Tamara Siverio, with a costume entitled "Me siento bella" (I feel beautiful), representing Grupo Fedola and designed by Alfonso Baute.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour: Estefanía García Martín, with a costume entitled "Entre el bien y el mal" (Between good and bad), representing Espectáculos Bravo and Cadena Meliá Hoteles and designed by Antonio Santos Arteaga.

The theme of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2016 was "The 80s". For the scenery, the LED screen was eliminated and the traditional papier-mache decorations were recovered (of doubtful taste), with eighties motifs including, a pseudo reproduction of a "Game Boy"; a giant cassette tape and a Playmobil doll paying homage to Freddy Mercury.

A new vent emerges in Tacande (La Palma), a new earthquake of 4.1 and more evacuations

Image: Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) National Geographic Institute

The night had been one of "tense calm", reports indicate, because "you cannot do anything, other than be aware of ensuring that people in danger are out of their homes", and some people had to be helped "who stayed behind because of animals."

A new earthquake occurred in El Paso at three kilometres deep. A new vent emerged last night in the volcano on La Palma, in the vicinity of the town of Tacande, which has forced the evacuation of a further 150 - 200 people. The new vent is located about 900 meters from the main one and to the north. It's the ninth vent for which there is evidence.

The National Geographic Institute (IGN) detected a new earthquake of 3.1 on the mbLg scale in the municipality of El Paso, although the Red Sísmica de Canarias (Canary Islands Seismic Network) indicates that the magnitude was 4.1. 

It is the largest earthquake on the island since this Sunday. The tremor, which occurred at 9:32 p.m., was felt in the municipalities of Los Llanos de Aridane, Breña Baja, Tazacorte, El Paso, Breña Alta, Fuencaliente, Villa de Mazo and Santa Cruz de La Palma.

Satellites have so far detected the destruction of 166 houses and the advance of lava. Although, the movement of the lava in the volcanic eruption of La Palma has slowed down in recent hours, so was not expected to reach the sea during the night, said the director of the Canary Islands Volcanic Risk Prevention Plan (Pevolca), Miguel Angel Morcuende. This does not mean, he has clarified, that the eruption has decreased its activity and it should be verified in the next few hours if this reduction is a trend or not.

According to the Instituto Volcanológico de Canarias (Involcan), the daily monitoring of sulphur dioxide (SO2) will be essential to analyse the evolution of the current process and to be able to certify the end of the eruption. The values obtained during the second day of this eruptive process (8,000-10,500 tons per day) are similar, but even slightly higher than the values recorded for the first day of the eruption (6,000-9,000 tons per day).

Yesterday the area was blocked due to the number of people who came by car to see the eruption, which is yet another problem that emergency services are having to deal with.
