Meanwhile, European social partners have launched negotiations to improve other forms of family leave, such as parental leave. Only In addition, women will have more flexibility over when to take the non-compulsory por- tion of their leave before or af- ter childbirth and would thus no longer be obliged to take a specific portion of the leave before childbirth, as is presently the case in some Member States.
There will also be stronger protection against dismissal and a right to return to the same j ob or an equivalent one after mater- nity leave. Finally, aright to ask the employer for flexible work- ing patterns after the end of ma- ternity leave will be introduced although the employer will have the right to refuse this request. The report forms part of a broader package of measures by the Com- mission to improve the work-life balance for Europeans.
The current pro- vision remains inadequate. Na- tional governments need to ad- dress the challenge and the EU will support their efforts with half a billion euros of EU funding up until to help develop childcare facilities. Across the EU, more than 6 mil- lion women aged 25 say they are forced into not working, or can only work part-time, because of their family responsibilities. For more than a quarter of them, lack of childcare facilities - or their cost - is the main problem.
Finally, against the back- ground of the current demo- graphic slowdown in Europe, provision of adequate childcare is an incentive to plan a family. Those Member States with the highest birth rates are also those which have done most to facili- tate the work-life balance for par- ents and which have a high rate of female employment.

The EU-Brazil meeting on Dec. The summit is a follow-up to the landmark encounter between the two sides staged in Lisbon in July The figures show that even though e-commerce is taking off at national level, cross-border e-com- merce is failing to keep pace. The share of EU consumers that have shopped across border has re- mained stable since at around a quarter of the population.
Even though consumers are increasingly confident about cross-border shopping, fewer retailers seem to be offering them this opportunity. Currently, 75 percent of retailers sell only to consumers domestically, but re- ports show that if rules were har- monised almost half of these 34 percent more would be inter- ested in cross-border selling. Cross-border shoppers gener- ally consist of younger, well-edu- cated people in higher profes- sional positions with Internet access at home.
The case seems to be the same for companies, where larger com- panies are warming to the idea, but there is still a middle group that has not fully taken on board the business potential that cross- border sales offer. Many businesses state that the harmonisation of rules in this area would result in enhanced interest in cross-border trade.

With her unique brand of straight-talking and practical advice, award-winning hotelier Alex Polizzi will once again be touring the country and beyond on amission to bring the hotels and guesthouses of Europe up to her own exacting standards.
From staffing to menus, decor to hygiene, Alex will leave no stone unturned in her quest to transform struggling busi- nesses into successful and prof- itable ventures. Channel Five is looking for British expats with a hotel or guesthouse aimed at the UK market, who are trying to im- prove the standards or other is- sues such as nightmare staff, leadership problems, or lack of intake despite having the per- fect product.
If the dream has all gone ter- ribly wrong and the towel is on the brink of being thrown in, then this is an opportunity not to be missed! The Hotel Inspector would love to hear from hotels and guesthouses owned and run by British people interested in this unique opportunity to gain in- valuable advice that could boost profit margins, provide profes- sional help with re-design and new marketing, as well as the chance of promoting their hotel to an audience of millions.

In the early hours of Saturday morning several establishments and terraces in Alvor were set on fire, wreaking havoc in the village. A 1 9 year old has been arrested by Judiciary Police after confessing to the crimes, which he says he committed because they were areas related to drug trafficking. Alvor was transformed into a war zone on Saturday as ten sepa- rate fires left a trail of destruction. A report stated that the owner of a coffee bar that was completely burnt down, causing considerable damage to apartments above, was uninsured.
A scooter on the street was completely destroyed, as was the awning of a restaurant whose complete facade suffered flame damage, as did several ter- races. The aftermath could have been much worse though as the fire burnt the protective cover of a main gas pipe, but luckily it did not explode. The young man caused de- struction from the riverside all the way into the centre of the vil- lage, setting light to paper stands, sunshades, awnings, terrace chairs and tables, and restaurant signs of several establishments. Further damage was limited only because several homeown- ers ran to their cars and drove them away from the burning flames.
The alleged arsonist was re- leased on bail and must make pe- riodic appearances at the Judici- ary Police Station until the case goes to Court. New access to beach criticised by ex Faro Mayor The construction of a wooden path to Faro beach to be used exclusively by pedestrians and cyclists has been heavily slated by Jose Vitorino who says the construction of a parallel boardwalk is a waste of money. Intended to complement the only bridge that accesses the beach, the boardwalk is one of the main priorities for the Polis project this year, as well as the creation of a car park near the airport and the renovation of the current bridge.
When she returns to Portugal she hopes to bring the region to- gether to create a support and fund-raising network along the lines of the afore-mentioned char- ity to help children with cancer and their fa mi lies in the Algarve. Ex-police officer Mandy, 43, was seriously injured in the line of duty and suffers back and head problems.
Despite this, on Sunday, Oc- tober 1 2 th , she will be abseiling off the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge to aid a worthy cause. She is now hoping to bring local organisations, groups and asso- ciations together to create a sup- port network. Due to the extent of her inju- ries, taking on the task of estab- lishing a fully-fledged charity is not possible, though she is avail- able and willing to help anyone who would assume responsibil- ity to do so. Itis something she wants to continue here in Portugal. Anyone interested helping Mandy in her mission can contact her at e-mail: mandy white horn yahoo.

What a lovely war If you were a theatregoer in the early 's you may well have seen this quite extraordinary musical written by Charles Chilton and staged by Joan Littlewood at the Wyndhams Theatre in Charing Cross Road, London. To take the First World War with its tragic loss of a generation of young men and turn it into a modem day music hall seemed to many to take theatre to its low- est ebb and be in the most unbe- lievably bad taste and yet. The clever use of songs sung by the ordinary soldiers of the time, blended with the inevitable cockney humour the British are so loved for, brings forth an even more poignant story of patriot- ism, resolve and exceptional courage of the every -day soldier whilst the ambition and inepti- tude of the generals that led them, is explained in a laughingly tragic way.
This is musical theatre at its best. You cannot help but be amused by the satirical humour or sing along with the well-loved songs, and yet you will be moved by the appalling waste of lives on the battlefields and the women who had encouraged them to go. The Algarveans Experimen- tal Theatre Group have invested heavily in this production.
Un- der the experienced director- ship of David Butler - Cole with Graham Cooper as his talented musical director, they have every available member in- volved either in the cast or on the production team and proceeds from the three days will be shared with The Royal British Legion. What a Lovely W ar will be staged at the Lagoa Audito- rium on Tuesday 4th, Wednes- day 5 th and Thursday 6th of November at 8pm, the week of Remembrance Sunday, in which all soldiers of all wars are remem- bered and honoured for their bravery.

Although the Child Safety Association has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get laws implemented since , a new proposal has been put forward by the Algarve Councils Association which could force builders to comply with new safety measures, if approved. Currently there are no specific regulations when it comes to private pool safety, allowing many hazardous pools to be built. The Algarve Coun- cils Association AMAL has recently approved a proposal, with 18 new safety measures, which will make it obligatory to place fences around pools, impeding children under five from reaching the pool without the help of an adult.

The most sought after courses are the ones focusing on scientific subjects. Of the international stu- dents coming to Universidade do Algarve this year, over half are from countries that are not part of the European Union. In fact, of the 54 nationalities studying at the University, only 16 are from Europe. A good share of them are still waiting for visas to allow them to remain in the coun- try legally, most being students from countries such as Somalia, Kazakhstan, India and China.
To help the international stu- dents find accommodation and learn the Portuguese language, UAlg has brought in services which will facilitate the process with intensive Portuguese courses which take place throughout the year.

The cheques had been re- movedfromthebackofmy cheque book, so I only discovered the fraud as I reached the first miss- ing page. Finibanco had honoured each cheque and the funds had left my account. They quite obviously were not signed by me. I approached Finibanco where Ihavebeenaclientforover7 years expecting that the funds would be reimbursed without argument, as clearly the Bank had failed to verify my signature, and pro- tect my account. I entered a com- plaint in the official book, which led to an investigation by the Bank and also by The Bank of Portugal, the regulatory body.
Is this little bit of fraud acknowledgment similar to being a little bit pregnant? I have also heard from The B ank of Portugal that the complaint is now closed. At a time when the EU is supposed to be integrating and looking after the rights of its citizens, this behaviour and prac- tice by a Portuguese bank, with the blessing of its official regula- tor, is nothing short of disgusting and I expect that they think I will give up and go away. Be assuredl shall do no such thing until Finibanco meet their obligations, acknowledge that their systems failed and credit my account.
Indeed what value does a genuine client signature hold? But as there may be others like your correspondent, who are not aware of it, may I re- ply please? ThePJ officer your writerrefers to was removed, allegedly, because of remarks made about UKpolice. Since he was removed, the leaks declined. Murat obeyed this law; others involved seem to have ignored the law. The stories your writer refers to were from these leaks or guesses, The Portuguese tab- loids were much worse than the UK ones. While Mr. Murat did win damages in the English courts, no attempt was made here because legal action is not prac- tical.
As to accounts. The Madeleine fund is a charity, it would be quiet easy to obtain ac- counts, he could try the charity directly or The Charity Com- missioners. As to Aberfan, is that an excuse for doing nothing, adopted by many in our uncar- ing society? Why should the parents not get the money after the tragic, avoidable losses.
Many parents would never have mentally recovered from that disaster. Senhor Amoral has indeed written a book; for profit? None of his claims are backed by the Portuguese prosecutors report. There was no evidence, errors were made. A mistake they have frequently admitted and the family continues to suffer from. Which of us has not made mis- takes, perhaps while driving and which can lead to tragic results?
What they have done is: raised the issue of missing children a great deal, leading to the Euro- pean Parliament backing a child alert EC scheme. Indeed, Portu- gal is likely to start such a scheme soon. As to his staff question, individuals in the McCann camp are funded by sup- porters. As to staff costs in the campaigns, these are paid either by supporters or the charity set up to find Maddie and help raise aware- ness generally, and here, strictly ac- cording to CC rules.
Your writer asks about the UK s ni ffer dogs. They were widely re- ported, but they are only an indica- tion; like a lot of new techniques, including the DNA techniques used in this case, they are disputed. Finally, it is most uncertain that any evidence collected from the apartment could ever have been used in a court of law, as the site was severely contaminated. First by the GNR, who in fact are military, not trained police, and then by Inspec- tor Amoral teams own decisions. While UK readers will be used to, mostly, one police force, there are many, many agencies here; to many to list here and severe doubts about liai- son, direction etc.
There is a lot to be learnt from the McCann case, sadly neither the Government nor agencies involved are willing to listen, to learn. I wonder if there is a demand for my services in among the ageing popu- lation of expats in the Algarve?

I do not have any practical ad- vice except to say be patient, 6 to 9 months is the norm in my expe- rience. I ap- plied and received temporary documentation on the 20th Feb, for a 3 month period.

On a posi- tive note my Wife, who also re- ceived alicence for 1 yearfirsttime round, re-applied in January and got her new licence in March - for 2 years; so we are getting there.

And as for saying that he trusts them, boy, what a fall-guy Ross would be to a double-glazing salesman! JR seems to have accepted, as have I, the scientific view that the universe resulted from a titanic ex- plosion about 1 5 billion years ago and was not produced fully formed, like a rabbit out of a hat, by his God about 6. When will JR grasp the fact that I do not claim, or seek to persuade others , that there is no God?

Like most people, when I go to a garden centre for a packet of seeds I come out with a trolley full of plants, always spending much more than I intended, but you really can tighten your belt without the garden going to pot. If you are going to spend money in garden centres, spend it on plants rather than anything else, she advises. Many garden centres have a reduced-price plant area, where the plants may have finished flowering or might be struggling a little.
With some new compost, a trim to dispose of the dead mat- ter and a little feeding, they should come back strong. Y ou can get cheap seeds from places like Lidl, Leroy Merlin or Max Mat, while good bargain plants and containers can be bought from car-boot sales and char- ity shops. Autumn is a great time for seed-swapping, so look on Google or Ya- hoo for seed- swapping groups and you will find unofficial groups of in- dividuals who will not only swap seed but will also provide you with plenty of first-hand infor- mation about the plant.
All you should need is a fork, spade, hand fork and trowel, rake, hoe, secateurs and a good pair of scissors. Tools whichlook more like torture instruments, but claim to make a particular job easier, are generally useless and are likely to be left unused in the shed. Now is also an obvious time to grow your own vegetables to re- duce your weekly food bills. Fowler advises novice gardeners to grow veg which are really sim- ple to grow, yet are extremely expensive in the shops, such as rocket and Swiss chard.
The seedlings should be thinned and can grow in pots on the window- sill. They just need watering regu- larly and will be ready for cutting in no time. The coloured stems of Swiss chard look great in a potager or take the place of ornamental plants in decorative pots.
Col- ourful oriental veg such as mus- tard and pak choi will brighten up your containers and are edible too. If you are on a budget, you may not save as much money growing vegetables such as potatoes, on- ions and cabbages, because these are all cheap in the shops - and take up a lot of space in the gar- den. Y ou may not want to use it in your pots but as a mulch for borders it will be fine. Three ways to Professionalism and craftsmanship guaran- teed. Use a home-made weedkiller made up of four cups of vin- egar to half a cup of salt and two teaspoons of washing-up liquid.
Zap weeds in pavement cracks with Coca-Cola, preferably on a sunny day. Place black polythene sheets or old carpet over big areas of weed and leave for a few months. Then lift and remove all the roots of the dead weeds. Remember, though, that quick fixes are not for the true gardener. There is aplace in every garden for a Japanese maple - some will last for years in a pot, while others are better suited growing in the gen- tle shade of larger trees or over water.
They like some shelter but can grow in any well-drained soil with added organic matter. If you want to grow one in a pot, the container needs to be at least 30cm one foot in diameter and filled with equal parts John Innes No. Put crocks in the bottom of the pot for drainage and top-dress the compost with gravel.
Japanese maples are much more slow-growing in pots than in the open garden. They will need moving to a bigger pot every few years but need little pruning. Good varieties include: A.

Regu- lar troops rarely lose battles against guerillas. But there were no lasting successes either — which is also typical of wars where foreign troops are fight- ing local guerillas. Carleton-Smith did not say that the foreign forces in Af- ghanistan will lose the war. Because if victory is not possible, then in the end the Afghan government will have to talk to the Taliban and negoti- ate a peace settlement.
If the war cannot end in a decisive victory for one side or the other, then it must end in a negotiated peace that is accept- able to both sides. The reason neither side can win is that they are too evenly balanced, and each can hold its own territory indefinitely. The United States allied itself with the main northern ethnic groups, Tajik, Uzbek and Hazara, who Gwynne Dyer is a London based independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.
But the Taliban were and still are the major po- litical vehicle for the Pashtuns, who are about 40 percent of the population. The Pashtuns were tradition- ally the dominant ethnic group in Afghanistan, but in 1 they were effectively driven from power by the other ethnic groups and their Western allies. In practice, the foreigners are fighting Pashtun nationalism. That is why they cannot win. On the other hand, and for the same reason, the Taliban can- not win a decisive victory either.
They never established control over northern Afghanistan even when they ruled in Kabul in 1 1 , mainly because the other ethnic minorities saw them as an exclusively Pashtun group. Moreover, most non- Pashtuns who did fall under their rule were alienated by their intolerance and brutality, and would certainly not welcome them back in sole power. But a negotiated peace deal must give the Pashtuns a fair share of power at the centre, and that means giving the Taliban a share of the power. This is still seen as unthink- able in most Western capitals, but it is a thoroughly traditional Afghan way of ending the peri- odic ethnic bust-ups that have always plagued the country, and it will happen sooner or later.
Does this mean that Afghani- stan will re-emerge as a base for international terrorism? Un- likely, since it would not be to the advantage of any Afghan government, even one that in- cluded Taliban elements, to at- tract that kind of international opprobrium. One is the notion that West- ern countries are willing to take casualties in Afghanistan for another three, five or ten years. The other is that the Afghan gov- ernment is not getting stronger. The usual denials followed, but that is ex- actly what British officials there say in private.
So it would make sense to announce a deadline for pull- ing out the foreign troops and start negotiating for a final peace settlement in Afghani- stan now. Waiting is unlikely to produce a better deal. Which is probably why President Mahmud Karzai said last week that he had asked the king of Saudi Arabia to medi- ate in negotiations with the Taliban.

One of the restaurants most popular dishes is Steak Teriyaki, seldom found else- where and prepared following traditional methods, like mari- nating the real steak with au- thentic ingredients before grill- ing over charcoal. All meats served at Seattle Style are grilled on a real coal barbeque. Lyn, who was born and lived in Seattle and has been a chef for 45 years, is enthusiastic to stress that no frozen, processed or pre- prepared ingredients are used in her menu.
Some dishes on the menu have even been devised to suit the re- gion, incorporating local produce to create one-off meals that are both visually interesting and de- licious. All desserts are homemade too and include traditional favourites directly imported from the USA, like Lime Mousse which is in- deed exquisite, sweet with a lit- tle zing, and, as it is not made with egg is fine for anyone to in- dulge in , and the quintessential Mississippi Mud Pie.

Black dresses can be worn for day- time too, pared-down with a con- trast colour polo neck or shirt un- derneath, as seen at Prada. Think headscarves, riding hats, clashing tartans and tweed. The fashion world takes its in- spiration from country pursuits with a bonkers twist.
Head for the traditional prim- and-proper heritage look with a muted colour palette or punk it up with vivid plaids like purple and green to give the trend a youthful injection. Catwalk style tip: The thought of donning a silk headscarf might send some running for the country hills. Instead, tie around your neck for a more wearable look, as seen at Daks. Look for lean, mean suiting with shoulder pads, crisp shirts and masculine edges like bow ties and tux lapels.

Few of us actually drink enough water through the hot summer months and when this is coincided with the air condition- ing that we crank up, your skin can become more dehydrated than the Sahara! You may also have been flying frequently dur- ing summer, many of my clients go back to the UK during this time, not only does this mean further dehydration on your skin due to the atmosphere on the plane but also a change in temperature when you arrive back in the UK.

Most people go to Antigua to get brown, but now the islanders are keen for visitors to go green. It was 10 years since we had last visited Antigua and after our comfortable V irgin Atlantic flight we were eager to renew our ac- quaintance as we touched down at the small and quiet VC Bird In- ternational airport.
As so often happens abroad, the taxi driver we had for our j our- ney out to the Verandah was more tour guide than cabbie. He was proud to point out a most beautiful cricket ground that has been created within the airport complex. Complete with flood- lights, the ground was staging an inter-island Twenty 20 competi- tion as we passed.
Possibly be- cause Antigua is a small island, boasting only around 76, people, everyone seems to know everyone else. Y ou speak to the taxi driver and he knows Sir Viv, you chat to a waiter and find he went to school with another former giant of West Indies cricket in its golden era of the s and 80s - the fast bowler Andy Roberts. Our first impression was that everything had smartened up since we were last here. The party ends in a waterfall, and the young Salete Gabriela Alves is murdered. They were sentenced to 21 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
After seven years in prison, the four young men return to hometown, Remanso, on probation. In the midst of this battle, the trio gained a new ally, Mike Jayme Periard , an American full of mysteries who reaches the city, specifically in the workshop of Cirineu, where he has work and housing.
The young stranger is disputed by the two daughters of Cirineu, Bianca and Nina Helena Ranaldi , father of the right arm in the workshop and who wins the heart of the young American.
