Presenting to the press the projects that are underway as well as those that are being scheduled Elia noted that since September a total of four events took place and that two action projects have been submitted with the aim to promote culture. Cyprus s state broadcaster apologised for transmitting the wrong presidential New Year message on December 31 and said an investigation had begun into what happened. Instead of putting out a message from President Nicos Anastasiades to welcome in 2014 it inadvertently transmitted a radio address by the man he replaced. A CyBC statement said an inquiry was under way after the grave mistake of inadvertently transmitting for a few seconds a New Year s message by former President of the Republic Mr Demetris Christofias . It said management expected a prompt outcome of the internal investigation. Anastasiades came to power in February 2013 after Christofias decided not to stand for re-election. His decision followed criticism of his handling of the economy which led to a 10-billion-euro international bailout in March. Some of these include the launching of the so called culture coffee shop with the aim to promote cooperation and communication with the citizens as well as the Open air factory in order to present to the public various cultural events such as theater performances etc. Referring to the opening ceremony in 2017 he said that it will be a very important event that will mark the celebrations for the Culture Capital. In the framework of the celebrations an exhibition titled Othello Rebirth opened its doors featuring the works of sixteen new artists. Chairman of the Board of Paphos 2017 Christos Patsalides described the whole project as an extremely difficult task noting the difficulties the organizers are faced with as regards the infrastructure. He said that the Board aims in stimulating the public to attend the various events and draw attention to the numerous attractions Paphos has to offer. Paphos a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus along with Aarhus in Denmark are the cities which won the title European Capital of Culture 2017 Official opening of one of the largest infrastructure projects in Paphos The newest addition to Paphos Kings Avenue Mall - the largest and most contemporary mall of Cyprus - officially launched its operation on Saturday 14 December 2013 with the official opening ceremony. The event was honoured by the presence of the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nikos Anastasiadis who performed the opening ceremony while Archbishop Chrysostomos officiated the holy blessing ceremony. The Mayor of Paphos Mr. Savvas Vergas also gave an address. The event was attended among others by various governmental officials politicians and local dignitaries as well as representatives of the business world of Cyprus. In his speech Mr. Theodoros Aristodimou who gave an address on behalf of the owners said the cost of Kings Avenue Mall exceeded 170 million and it will provide a boost to the economy of Paphos since in addition to being a consumer s oasis offering countless choices for entertainment and shopping meeting all needs and tastes this mall which covers 82 thousand square meters will offer jobs to more than 1 000 employees providing much needed relief to the island s work force. Moreover Kings Avenue Mall will enrich and upgrade the tourism product offered by Cyprus and Paphos in particular. On behalf of the Board of Directors of Athiari Commercial (Paphos) Ltd which developed Kings Avenue Mall Mr. Panagiotis Athiainitis gave an address in English thus honouring English-speaking guests while Mr. Sozos Houliotis offered commemorative gifts to the President and the Archbishop to thank them for the honour of their presence The impressive architecture and stylish interior layout of Kings Avenue Mall as well as the vast selection of shops left guests and visitors with the best of impressions. Local man quizzed over trafficking Syrian migrants to Sweden A Cypriot travel agent suspected of being involved in an international criminal network which trafficked people into Sweden is being questioned by authorities in Stockholm. The man 64 who has not been identified is being held following an international inquiry investigating the trafficking of migrants from Syria through Cyprus and onto Stockholm. According to local media reports Syrian migrants armed with false passports arrived in the Republic via the Sovereign Base Areas and were transported by a local taxi driver to Paphos Airport. Police are looking for the taxi driver involved. It is unclear if the man being questioned in Stockholm will face charges. December s Quake had 6.3 magnitude A strong quake measuring 6.3 points on the Richter scale was registered at 17.21 on Saturday 28th December by the seismological centre of Cyprus Geological Survey Department.The department said that the quake s epicentre was the sea in the bay of Antalya 188 km northwest of Paphos at a depth of 11 km and was felt throughout Cyprus. The centre s head told CyBC TV there have been three after-shocks so far with a magnitude of about 3. Earlier the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre had put the quake at a magnitude of 5.9. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. The quake was particularly noticeable northwest Paphos and in Nicosia but was felt throughout the island. A spokeswoman from the Cyprus seismological centre said that that it was particularly felt in high buildings in Nicosia with reports of small objects being displaced. Meanwhile AP reported from Turkey that a magnitude-6 earthquake has struck in the Mediterranean Sea south of the Turkish province of Antalya. No damage or casualties were reported.The Istanbul-based Kandilli seismology centre said the earthquake occurred at 5 21 p.m. Saturday and was centered some 84 kilometers southwest of the holiday resort of Alanya. It was also felt in the neighbouring province of Mersin and on the island of Cyprus AP reported. www.cyprusreporter.com 2 We make sure your healthcare and dental care isn t a puzzle.

THE NEW COSTA DEL CRIME HOW CRIMINALS ESCAPE JUSTICE IN CYPRUS In the late 1990s and early 2000s dozens of criminals began fleeing there to take advantage of the fact that the Turkish-controlled part of the island has no extradition treaty with the UK. Top tips for success in learning a new language Study every day Try to set aside some time every day for your studies. It is better to study for 30 minutes every day than for 3 hours once a week. If you can spare an hour a day break it up into two or three sessions to avoid overload. If you decide to study for half an hour a day for example try to stick to that exact time. It is often easier to get started on an activity if you know you will finish it at a certain time. Revise regularly Go over each lesson several times perhaps once in the morning once in the evening and once several days later. Give your brain time to digest the material and make sure you have got to grips with the contents of one lesson before moving on to the next. Build on solid foundations Make sure you are comfortable with the fundamentals of the language before tackling the more advanced structures. It will take you a while to get used to the pronunciation and spelling of a new language but without a solid understanding of these you will find it very difficult to learn more. Set yourself targets Setting reasonable targets is a good way to motivate yourself. You could set yourself a time limit or aim for a certain level of proficiency by a specific date. Focus on your interests Once you have got to grips with the basics of the language learn to talk write read about the things that interest you. In this way you are more likely to remember to the words phrases and grammatical constructions you encounter. Don t be discouraged if your progress does not feel rapid You will find that at times you are making fairly rapid progress while at other times you might feel like you are standing still. This is normal when learning a language so do not be discouraged. If you feel like you are making little or no progress try going over earlier lessons and exercises any you will almost always see that they are easier now than when you first tried them. Have fun Find ways to make language learning fun. Learning with a friend can make learning more fun You could use games songs stories tongue twisters jokes or anything else you can think of. Don t worry about making mistakes We all make the occasional mistake when speaking our native language so making mistakes in a foreign language is nothing to worry about. What matters most is getting your message across. Worrying about using all the right words inflexions tenses and cases should be left at a later stage of study. If you cannot think of the exact words try using other ones. For example say you were talking about your office and didn t know the word for photocopier - you could try describing its function a machine for making copies instead. Learn how to say things like How do you say...in Greek What s the word for... What s that called in Greek What are they doing etc. When you have acquired more confidence and a degree of fluency in the language ask for all your errors to be commented on. Make notes on what wasn t said correctly and try to memorise the corrections. It is also useful to have a few stock phrases up your sleeve such as Forgive me I don t speak Greek very well but I am trying hard to learn it. Most of all remember to have fun while learning your new language and remember that people will always be willing to give you a bit of help any time you might need it Make 2014 the year to learn Greek Learn with Demetris Georgiades an experienced Canadian-Cypriot teacher (BA McMaster University) (MA University of Sheffield). Make this the year to unlock the mystery of the local language All skills are taught using a tried and tested system that will have you speaking Greek with confidence in no time at all Please phone for information or to register 26-910322 99-347502. Choose the level that is most appropriate for you. Being able to speak Greek when living in Cyprus will add a bright new dimension to life and there will be no more awkward lost in translation moments Classes are 1.5hrs weekly and the monthly fee of 20 includes weekly revision lessons at no extra charge It is easier than you think Book your place now and you will be speaking Greek by this spring Lessons start on the 22nd of January. www.cyprusreporter.com The situation came about because the UK government does not recognise Turkey s claim to the land. The Turkish government has offered to sign a treaty with the UK but so far the Government has refused to avoid offending Cyprus or Greece. Fears have been raised that the situation means the area could become the equivalent of Spain s Costa de Sol in the 1970s and 1980s where criminals would often go to escape extradition. Authorities in northern Cyprus have said they will co-operate with UK police. This however has not stopped the island being a problem. Last year the Serious Organised Crime Agency released a most wanted list of nine wanted men who were believed to be in Cyprus in the hope that it would help them be brought to justice. Couple at the centre of an international five-year manhunt for allegedly swindling 1million from the NHS have been arrested on Cyprus Deborah Hancox 44 and John Leigh 53 were extradited back to the UK They are charged with defrauding the NHS s Greater Manchester Deanery The pair allegedly went to the island in 2008 after being questioned by police Police could only take them in after they strayed from northern Cyprus - which has no extradition treaty - to the Republic of Cyprus which does A couple at the centre of an international five-year manhunt over an alleged 1million NHS fraud have been arrested in Cyprus. Deborah Hancox 44 and John Leigh 53 are charged with eight counts of fraud and conspiracy to defraud the Greater Manchester Deanery a teaching organisation. They allegedly moved to Cyprus after police interviews in 2008. The pair were only able to be arrested when they moved from the Turkish-controlled north side of the island to Republic of Cyprus in the south. Unlike the north side which has no extradition treaty with the UK the Republic of Cyprus does and allowed Hancox and Leigh to be taken in. The couple stepped over the border to the Republic of Cyprus at the end of last year where they were taken into custody on a European Arrest Warrant. The couple were flown back to Britain by Cypriot police and appeared before Manchester Magistrates Court. Ms Sarah Johnson from the CPS said with a little research the couple would have discovered northern Cyprus to be a non-convention country and so has no extradition treaty with the UK. A Crimewatch appeal to help trace the pair was made by the National Crime Agency in October. They were wanted in a joint investigation by Greater Manchester Police and the NHS s counter fraud unit NHS Protect. Leigh was employed by the NHS as an IT manager from 2000 until 2009. He was questioned by police over claims he had interests in three IT companies used to supply equipment services and goods to the NHS. The couple are suspected of being involved in a fraud that led to the NHS being defrauded out of more than 1million. The case has been transferred to Manchester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing later this month. 5 Young Stars Theatre and Performing Arts Y oung Stars Theatre and Performing Arts certainly knows how to kick start the New Year with an incredible two day workshop exclusively for their Young Stars Students with teachers from the world renowned Pineapple Dance Studios in Covent Garden London.

Last month at the Markedion Theatre Paphos Young Stars presented Ella - Our Modern Cinderella Story which was written by Gwenda Marriott who as well writing also starred alongside Matthew Edmondson and our fabulous Young Stars students who wowed the audience with a truly impressive performance of a classic fairytale brought up to date with a modern twist. Young Stars is a Theatre school not a Dance school but my aim is to be able to provide exceptional training in all aspects of Theatre & Performing Arts.

The Yancheng a missile frigate will accompany a Norwegian-Danish convoy which is in international waters off Syria waiting for the go-ahead from international watchdogs overseeing the removal of the chemical arsenal. The mission to ship chemicals from Syria has missed its December 31 target date and Chinese and Cypriot officials said it was unclear exactly when it would begin. China supports the efforts of the international community to destroy the Syrian chemical weapons ... we wish this operation a success said Liu Xinsheng the Chinese ambassador to Cyprus. Photis Photiou the defense minister of Cyprus said after meeting Chinese officials that he expected the operation would start any day now . Russia will also be providing escort to the convoy carrying Syria s chemical weapons which will be loaded onto two cargo ships and escorted to Italy where a U.S. ship equipped with toxin neutralizing equipment will take over. The U.S. vessel the Cape Ray is due to leave the United States for the Mediterranean in about two weeks. Dozens of Chinese nationals in Cyprus converged on the quay of Limassol port about 160 miles west of the Syrian port city of Latakia from where the chemicals will be shipped. Loudspeakers blared Chinese music as Chinese flags were waved by women in traditional yellow and red costumes. The December 31 deadline was missed because of poor weather logistical delays and the conflict inside Syria where President Bashar al-Assad s forces have fought to clear rebels from roads along which the chemicals will be transported. Syria agreed to abandon its chemical weapons under a deal proposed by Russia and hashed out with the United States after hundreds of people died in an August 21 sarin gas attack that Western nations blamed on Assad s government. Syrian authorities deny they used chemical weapons blaming rebels. China has repeatedly called for a political resolution. It has also called for a full and impartial investigation by U.N. chemical weapons inspectors. McDonalds Kilts of Cyprus The First and only Kilt Hire and Scottish Gift centre has opened in Cyprus and in the first week has started well with a lot of interest from not only the Scottish but other nationalities buying non-Scottish items such as Pewter Flasks Cuff Links and Pocket Watches the Wing Collar shirt seems to be a big seller too. We have also taken a few weddings bookings for next year and John has been booked to play the Bagpipes for various Burns Supper nights in January. The main reason for the shop is Kilt Hire for the weddings after coming here a few years ago for my sisters wedding hiring the Kilt outfit for 10 days paying for excess baggage and carting it around I was surprised to find that there was nothing here so kept it in the back of my mind for the future. Why a Kilt Shop in Cyprus Why Cyprus I have just finished 24 Years in the Army and spent two of the at RAF Akrotiri about ten years ago and always wanted to come back here but as I am only 42 too young to retire this seemed the perfect opportunity to provide a service and top up my military pension. After some research and a year getting all the various items built and made in Scotland here we are. What do you provide I originally planned on Kilt Hire but have also all the accessories for sale even the kilts. I can even get my weaver in Scotland to custom build a kilt in any tartan and get sent out here. I am also a Piper of 15 years so can also play at weddings or functions. The items in the shop range from pewter silver gifts to cuff links and bow ties the Golfers Flask with T s and silver cups have also proven popular. Lastly who are you here with I am over here with my wife Deborah McDonald and 3 year old daughter Maisie-Ibrox McDonald who has just started local nursery. www.cyprusreporter.com 7 8 www.cyprusreporter.com The Blue Olive Restaurant Coral Bay paphos I finally managed to catch up with Keith (chef manager and owner) of the Blue Olive. It has been a very busy time for him with many changes taking place over the last year and it appears more are to follow. As a point in case he was painting the walls of the restaurant as we talked over his latest batch of imported wine. Although I should hasten to add that the Sunday Lunch will not be changing and will remain one of the best Sunday Lunch available in the area with vegetarian options and fish available as well as the usual roast meats. His Christmas menu has proved even more popular than last years and has spurred him on to redesign his evening bistro to include the now famous venison bourguignon. He has also decided to add a herb crusted cod to the menu breaking away from the traditional salmon and tuna steaks (although when he is offered tuna from his friendly fisherman he won t be saying no ) The salad bar is still very much the focus of the lunch menus but as with most people s planed New Year s resolutions Keith is going to try and help us all to be healthy by keeping an eye on the amount of mayonnaise and by offering freshly prepared slimming world meals on Friday lunchtimes and some evenings if the idea takes off. This means that you can still go out and enjoy yourself without the guilt. The Blue Olive is still open 7 days a week throughout winter and Keith has been doing his hot meals as a take away and this has proved very popular with both tourists and locals who want an easy option that they can eat when and how they want. He is still continuing to offer the picnic hampers as an easy way to take the salad and wine etc to the beach and as the weather picks up these are bound to become a familiar site on the local beaches. Outside catering has also proved an important part of the Blue Olive repertoire with weddings and private parties taking up a lot of Keith spare time. He has been providing large salads hot barbeques and cold meats and fishes to a stunning standard. All in all it is easy to see why the Blue Olive has received its certificate of excellence from trip advisor and as it continues to develop and grow long may this success continue.

However the 150-kilometer distance between the gas field and Cyprus shores could delay operations. Because of the distance offshore the field would require a pipeline to reach the mainland of Cyprus at which point it could be used for domestic economy or LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) export said Keith Elliott senior vice president of Eastern Mediterranean Region of Noble Energy. The government says it is planning to finalize investment and build an onshore LNG plant while using Cyprus proximity to the Suez Canal and its ties with Europe to exploit export opportunities in Asia and Europe respectively. But Amit Mor CEO of Eco Energy Financial and Strategic Consulting and former World Bank consultant said that Cyprus cannot economically justify even one LNG plant based on current reserves. He added that Cyprus could possibly build a plant if the country reached an agreement to liquefy excess Israeli gas from the country s Tamar and Leviathan fields which are significantly bigger than Cyprus Aphrodite field. Cyprus itself is a small market that does not justify the financing efforts Mor said. One LNG plant incurs 6 billion in construction costs. The development cost of a major offshore gas field could reach 4 billion (while) exporting natural gas via ships in liquid form is a very expensive and time consuming process. According to Eurostat Cypriot residents are subject to the highest electricity bills in the European Union because the country produces power by burning oil. But by switching to gas and converting its power stations Cyprus could alleviate some of the financial burden on consumers. The Cypriot people need to much more patient. It takes a lot of time to discover and develop oil and gas fields. In the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea for example it took 10 to 20 years said Mor. A brighter future The discovery of gas and the inward investment from global energy companies is a silver lining for Cyprus at time of pervasive economic gloom. In March a banking crisis shattered the country s economy destroyed Cyprus second largest bank and threatened the life savings of thousands of residents. Subsequently the East Mediterranean island became the fourth country to receive a national bailout from the eurozone and the International Monetary Fund. Charles Movit senior economist at U.S.-based consultancy IHS said the benefits of gas reserves could help Cyprus service its debt In the medium term license fees for exploration and development could be helpful in closing the financing gap. Down the road royalties and job creation could be a major plus. With gas sources in the North Sea expected to decline over the next decade and few countries willing to invest in nuclear energy in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan Cyprus could also provide the answer to Europe s energy demands as it seeks to decrease its dependency on Russian gas. A pipeline between Israel and Cyprus to Europe via Crete and Greece would cost 6 billion to 8 billion. I think it is very important to conduct a feasibility study to see if this is economically viable said Mor. In the meantime Cypriots struggling under the weight of a recession are hoping the government s predictions are correct and that gas could ultimately provide the basis for ending the economic crisis. 10 www.cyprusreporter.com www.cyprusreporter.com 11 COLONICS - A Clean Bowel is a Healthy Bowel Why have a colonic The Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain comprised of 57 leading I have IBS.

They concluded that nearly every gas parasites bad bacteria and putrid waste. As we decrease the waste from the bowels contemporary chronic disease is related to poisons in the colon. the IBS will decrease dramatically. Of course the diet is a major contributing factor.

When a person is constipated the Yes. Much of the food we eat today is mucous forming as we eat these foods a sticky glue like walls of the colon are often encrusted with masses of accumulated faecal matter. The inner substance is left throughout the gastrointestinal tract much of it ends up in the colon.

Since the encrusted faeces line the colon wall the colon is unable to absorb nutrients from our food in the last phase of the digestive process. Auto-intoxication is the process where the body literally poisons itself by maintaining a cesspool of decaying matter in the colon. Wastes from the blood steam which should normally be drawn into the colon through the colon wall are re-absorbed by the body along with other toxins resulting from the fermentation This inner cesspool contains a high number harmful bacteria similar to a cesspool under a and putrefaction of incompletely digestive food. Subsequently intestinal stasis often follows house.

A person can ever have several bowel movements a day and still be constipated.

This creates a peaceful and gentle experience which allows one to have a much more thorough colonic. The treatment is non-aggressive and never overwhelming. Dr. Norman Walker and Dr. Robert Woods helped popularize this method better known as the Woods Gravity Method. Using a simultaneous in out flow is based on a logical approach to the human body which takes into account its physiological nature. Other methods fill the colon with force which causes stress on the organ and the individual getting the treatment. A gravitycentred colonic awakens the peristaltic motion of the colon rather than taking over the functionality of the organ itself. It gently rinses the bowels restoring strength and normal healthy functioning. One never becomes dependant on gravity-centred colonics. The gravity method does not use motors or pumps during the colonic treatment. This translates to a comfortable and relaxing yet very effective treatment. This method helps the colon regain its strength by gently rinsing the old encrusted faecal matter from the organ instead of other methods that force water into the colon. The most important aspect of the gravity method is that it awakens the colon to do the work of elimination without any force. This means that your body will never become dependent on colonics. What are the benefits of colon cleansing consider the colon the sewer system of the body. Since the colon is at the end of the line it becomes sluggish backed-up and therefore polluted. This in turn impairs the colon s ability to assimilate vitamins and minerals hence polluting and weakening the entire body - tissue organs and bloodstream. We eventually become tired and often sick because the amount of waste in the tissues and bloodstream is too much for our daily routine. The waste in the blood stream that does not get filtered by the kidneys in sleep (dialysis) eventually contributes to general fatigue cloudiness in one s thinking bloating and lack of energy to get through the day. By cleansing the bowels we can help restore the body to its natural state of being which is healthy and vibrant. By decreasing the amount of waste in the bowels we effectively cleanse the tissues organs and bloodstream. As we become cleaner we notice many positive changes - from increased energy and clearer thinking to vibrant health and vitality. . 12 www.cyprusreporter.com www.cyprusreporter.com 13 14 www.cyprusreporter.com Cyprus Association for the Protection and Care of Animals (CAPCA) Charitable Association Registration No. 1721 We need YOU. Do you have a couple of hours to spare during the week Do you love dogs Do you have a big heart with lots of love to spare Paws Dog Shelter have around 130 dogs in their care at any time. These vary from tiny puppies to our gentle giants like Brewster and Major. We rely on our wonderful volunteers for everything. The whole shelter is cleaned every day and the dogs are fed on fresh cooked food at around 9.00 a.m. so their basic needs are met in that way but they need so much more. We have some volunteers who come in to walk the dogs up and down our private road so if you feel that you need some regular exercise this helps you (I guarantee weight loss.) and the dogs love it. Sometimes they walk you they are so keen to get out. It is also good to spend some time just playing with them in the runs. Ball throwing is always a favourite. Or tug of war with their rope toys. It is so important to keep them socialised and trained in basic manners. We also need help with our fundraising activities. It costs around 90 000 a year to run the shelter and all of this has to be raised again by our willing volunteers. If you can help in any way please please please get in touch by phoning 99683775 or email paws-capca hotmail.com or contact. pawsdogshelter gmail.com . I can assure you that the rewards are enormous in the love and affection the dogs will give to you. PAWS DOG SHELTER Tank is 4 years old and was brought to the shelter by his owner with his 2 brothers. These 3 dogs have never really settled in the shelter but are good with other dogs and are waiting for a lovely home to go to. They are fully vaccinated and neutered. He does have a microchip but it isn t registered. He is a Pointer cross Black in colour with a white chest. He is very playful and chases balls. Blot is the brother of Tank and was brought to shelter along with his two brothers. Blot has never really settled at the shelter but again has the same temperament as Tank. Blot is also micro chipped but registered and fully vaccinated. Also neutered. He is black in colour. He also is playful and loves a walk and to chase a ball. He is also a Pointer cross.

The Triathlete named Dimos Papadavid has caught the eye of the owners Peter & Linda Whiteside because of his outstanding results in this demanding sport. Triathlon (Swim Cycle and Run) is becoming a popular pastime for all ages that are interested in getting fit and developing their general health and fitness level. For many years we have seen both Cypriots and Brits at Ta Banias close to the harbour area taking their early morning dip. Alongside this many people see jogging as a good way of staying fit and keeping excess weight off. More people are using bicycles for shorter journeys to save on fuel whilst helping them stay fit. Dimos Papadavid has taken this to the next level and has his target set on becoming the number one Triathlete in Cyprus and competing in a full Ironman competition held in Hawaii. He is now training up to 15hrs per week under the supervision of Prof. Peter Whiteside who competed in the 1980 Olympic Games and coached the Great Britain team at Modern Pentathlon. Dimos has arranged his training around his two jobs. He is a school teacher and a joint owner manager of the Chinese restaurant Tao Fusion in Kato Paphos. Dimos started running about 5 years ago and cycling just 2 years ago. He met Prof. Whiteside whilst swimming at Ta Banias. He discovered he could not keep up with Peter despite being 30 years younger. This was a very fortunate meeting for Dimos as he had recently recovered from a stress fracture to the shins due to over training. With Peter s coaching background and knowledge of sports nutrition he was able to advise Dimos on improving his training methods as well as the type of sports supplementation he needed if he was to train at the top level. Peter knew from his own experience the importance of good nutrition when pushing the body to its limits. His own sporting career was cut short when he became ill with M.E. otherwise known as extreme fatigue syndrome. He was ill for a many years and only recovered when by chance he discovered the best type of nutritional support enabling his body return to balance. To enable Dimos to work and train at these intense levels Proto-Col Cyprus supply him with the following products Green Magic. A green powder containing 17 of the world s most nutrient dense Super foods. This helps detox the body and blood to aid cell recovery. Vita Balance. A multi-vitamin containing 125 important minerals trace minerals and vitamins. A collection of herbs and minerals designed to aid digestion boost your metabolism and detox your body. Omega Essentials. A combination of 3 key omega oils - 3 6 and 9. The capsules contain a potent source of flaxseed oil and ELA APA DHA OA and LA (acids) essential for healthy joints. Pro Sports Collagen. A special blend of type 1 and type 3 collagen. This formula is designed forathletes recovering from injury boosting collagen levels to reduce recovery time and strengthen weakened joints. Dimos is now swims an impressive 1500m in 32 min cycles 40km in 59min and runs 10km in 35min. He will be training intensively through the winter focussing on his swimming aiming to reduce his time by at least 5min. This nutritional regimen along with the coaching and strength training will certainly enable him to move another stage closer to achieving his goal. Proto-Col Cyprus wish Dimos every success for the coming season and are proud to support such a dedicated athlete.

Ben currently holds regular Friday auctions at Hammers Auction House Chloraka in Paphos. Dear Dave What you own is not actually a Dr Who TARDIS at all. It is a die cast police hut and was made by Dinky toys. It actually is a 42A Police hut and pre dates The Dr Who TV series by a good few years. Up until the BBC licensed in the 1970 s the Denys Fisher TARDIS it was all us young Dr Who fans could get hold of. The Dinky police hut is actually based on the Mark 1 police box and the Dr Who TARDIS is based on the slightly later police box designed by Gilbert Trench of the Metropolitan Police surveying department. Don t feel short changed that your neighbour never gave you it boxed because this item was never sold in its own box. In those days these were packed in yellow boxes of six. The retailers then sold them as individual items. Even not being a TARDIS it is still a good collectable Dinky and worth 40 Euros in fair to good condition Ben Dear Jean I remember these cards well. The collection you are talking about would have been dated around 1975. PG Tips collector s cards were included in boxes of loose and bagged tea sold from 1954 1999. In the 1950s and 1960s packets of Brooke Bond tea included illustrated cards usually 50 in a series which were collected by many children. One of the most famous illustrators of the cards was Charles Tunnicliffe the internationally acclaimed bird painter. Most of the initial series were wildlife-based including British Wild Animals British Wild Flowers African Wild Life Asian Wild Life and Tropical Birds . From the late 1960s they included historical subjects such as British Costume History of the Motor Car and Famous Britons . Complete sets and albums in good condition are highly sought-after. There were well over 200 series issued and many of them have since been reprinted. I am afraid that your collection is not one of the most sought after. A fair value would be around 5 Euros.

Tax evasion he added is a huge issue noting that political decisions need to be taken by the Executive and the House has great responsibilities in efforts to address the matter. Georgiou also said that another issue that needs to be addressed is the overpricing of medicines as Cyprus ranks sixth in the list of EU countries with the highest cost of medicine. The worsening of the finances of the 39 municipalities on the island is also worrying members of the House. According to Georgiou the Finance Ministry is on red alert after an Austrian bank which had lent a total 100 million euro to 15 municipalities has demanded its money back. 26 www.cyprusreporter.com www.cyprusreporter.com 27 Complied by Jezebel at Groovejet Media Productions.
