Casino payout. easyJet “assault”. Troika loan.

In a statement to the media the Casino da Madeira announced that on November 29, at around 22.30, slot machine no 181 02 in their games room paid out a jackpot of 39,062.96 euros to Miguel Pires who was playing the game ‘Wild Gold’. Wonder what he spent the 96 cents on?

The statement also says that this year the Casino has paid €33,242,998.81 in prizes (at the tables and on machines). It doesn’t mention how much it took in wagers before paying this out. Not quite on the scale of the record Powerball lottery jackpot of $588 million this week, but still an impressive sum!

 

Grandmother accused of assault after touching flight attendant’s arm

Be careful before you next climb on easyJet. The Telegraph reported last week that “Janet Kirby, 62, claims she was left stranded in Spain with no means of transport or accommodation after she was refused permission to fly.

“The mum-of-two and grandmother-of-two was stopped at the gate and told her hand luggage would not fit in the overhead lockers while trying to fly back to her home in Stroud, with her sister, Carol.

“She was told her bag would have to be put in the hold but when she observed other passengers boarding with even larger bags she attempted to catch the female flight attendant’s attention.

“Ms Kirby claims she was repeatedly ignored and when she touched the attendant’s arm to speak to her she was accused of assault and told she could not fly. "I tried to get [the flight attendant’s] attention by touching her arm and she said, ‘Do not touch me. You are not flying’," Ms Kirby said.

“A supervisor was called and Ms Kirby was told she would no longer be allowed to get on the flight. When she asked if she would be allowed to fly the following day, Ms Kirby claims she was told no. "I couldn’t believe it. To be accused of assaulting somebody just for touching them is absolutely ludicrous," Ms Kirby said. "They said I was banned from using easyJet ever again."

“Ms Kirby was attempting to fly back from Spain on Sunday after a short break at her 65-year-old sister’s holiday home in Alfaix, Mojacar. Ms Kirby’s husband Michael, 65, said: "It seems totally wrong that two elderly women can be abandoned in a foreign country on the whim of a petty local official. The women flew back to England on Wednesday night with Ryanair and without any incident.

“In a statement issued to a local paper, easyJet said police witnessed what happened and backed their stance. A statement from easyJet said: "The customer was declined travel following a confrontation with a staff member. "The decision was supported by police who witnessed the incident."

Funchal in the 1950’s

A wonderful old photo of the western end of Funchal I recently chanced across on the internet. The data attached seems to suggest 1950 but I might be wrong. If anybody can enlighten me please do! http://fasesdaluacheia.blogspot.pt/2012_06_01_archive.html

‘Troika’ has loaned €61,100,000,000 – almost a third of direct Portuguese debt

The Diario reports that the nominal balance of loans already granted to Portugal under the financial assistance program of the ‘troika’ in late October amounted to 61.1 billion euros, almost a third of the total direct debt of Portugal.

 

 

This data is listed in the monthly newsletter of the Treasury Management Agency and Public Debt (IGCP), released today. According to the same publication the direct debt of Portugal was 193,500 million at the end of last month. That is, the debt to the ‘troika’ now represents 31.6% of total debt

Looks to me like a bit of “debt reduction” might be required sooner rather than later as happened to Greece earlier this week – just to keep the Eurozone show on the road. The IMF, according to their own rules, couldn’t lend Greece any more money because of their debt to GDP ratio. Solution: get the Eurozone countries to write off 20% of what they are owed. Result: Debt to GDP ratio comes down. Bingo – IMF can lend them even more money. I’m considering asking my bank manager if he will give me a ridiculous loan that I can’t possibly repay, spend it all on German Cars or Madeiran infrastructure projects, and wait for him to write it off……………and then start the process again.

Finally…

A link to a great story in the Mail that I have been meaning to publish for some time. Absolutely nothing to do with Madeira!:

  2. Easyjet story does not come as a surprise. On one EJ flight from Lisbon to UK we had the Cruella DeVille look alike flight attendant and her assistant who made my 80 year old grandad look young. Both were fluently bilingual, in English and English louder for portuguese speakers. Our next experience with EJ from Funchal was to find we were unable to eat food we brought on board because of a person with a severe allergy (which I have no problem with) But the flight attendant refused to take any coins because ‘it takes too long to do the cash up with all the change to count’!! Tap may have their issues but compared to Easy Jet is luxury travel.

    Reply
  3. We only used Easy Jet once but I will never again use them, the flight crew was rude and completely self centered, they treated all the passengers like rubbish, even though some may have deserved it, it should not be allowed!!!!

    When you start you holiday in this manner it is not a pleasure.

    I know that there can be difficult passengers aboard, my daughter used to be a flight attendant on Emirates for 6 years, but being rude to passengers is normally not in the Job description.

    They should teach their flight crew some basic customer service ethics, growing as they do will not be sustainable if this kind of behavior persist.

    I would rather swim to Madeira than fly with them again.

  4. The moon shines over the wonderful island of Madeira in the moon lit night, with the Christmas lights of many colours, over Funchal and the smaller towns. Christmas it’s a time of cheer and drinking wines and Poncha from Madeira. Eating hot chestnuts in the street and people stop and point at the Christmas lights and people dressed up as Santa or wearing local Madeira custom cloths. Shop tills opening and shutting of goods brought for Children and love ones, the shine of coins in the tills are like glistering water of the sea. In the fish market, churches around the island, singers sing with joy. People speaking in many languages, lots you can’t understand, but it’s all the same Merry Christmas and Happy New year. Palm trees swing in the night sky, like people warmth feeling of romance and hugs of affection. Fruit and oranges stalls on display on the streets, lit up to add to the mood. Houses display lights and Santa climbing up ladders. Humans may have their defenses, but its Christmas that brings us all together as one, with the coming New Years fireworks, with ships horns celebrating in the night. Let’s enjoy and not forget our Holiday time of joy.

  6. 10 out of 10 for the initiative of the newly formed ‘ Dengue Defence Department’, for the brilliant idea of installing giant mosquito burning coils all over Funchal, cunningly disguised as roasted chestnut stalls. I am sure it will help to protect the many visitors to the city during the festive season, in addition to selling several tons of nuts! Goodness only knows what the smoke will do to those pesky little insects, although I do wonder if a slight reduction in the DEET content may be advisable. The other day the memsaab and I were out strolling along the front, close to the main pier, just passing a smoking roasted chestnut stall when wind changed direction and I copped for a face full of it. I was totally disorientated for at least fifteen minutes. My eyes eventually cleared in time to witness a group of shall we say ‘entry level cruise ship visitors’ resplendent in their pink fluffy trimmed Stetsons, also overcome by the fumes; staggering aboard the Beatles Boat. They sat down, and in their hallucinatory state, for the next ten minutes demanded from a confused waitress that the captain take them on a sail around the harbour, on a digger spotting trip. They eventually left still dazed, the men insisting that they be directed to the Rose & Crown or the White Lion immediately, and the women enquiring if there was a tattoo parlour which gave discounts to pensioners anywhere nearby. My only other caution would be not to light the coils during daylight hours following the incident when the Captain of a passing cruise ship the Costa Arm&Leg (sister ship to the Costa Packet, Costa Fortune, and the Costa Bundle) radioed the coast guard to report that the volcano which is Madeira was smoking and may be in danger of erupting!

  7. from dnoticias Germany will make it to the end of the year without a deficit

    Germany will reach the end of 2012 with the aim of balancing the budget, getting no deficit relative to gross domestic product (GDP), says today the German weekly ‘Der Spiegel’.

    The deficit of the German state, including the federal government, the ‘Länder’, local and social system-reach zero thanks to a strong increase in tax revenues, says the weekly.

    The ‘Der Spiegel’ indicates that this information is internal calculations of the German Ministry of Finance.

    With these results, speeds up the process of fiscal consolidation that the holder of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, estimated a few months ago, with the prediction that this would be achieved in 2013, while for this year would stand at 0.5% of GDP.

    The level of debt will also be lower than expected – 81.5% instead of 83.5% estimated a few months ago – with prospects of standing at 73% in 2016.

    In comparative terms, Portugal will have to reach the end of the year with a deficit of 5% of GDP and a debt level that will exceed 125%.

On our last few flights from Funchal to Lisbon the cabin crew have been entirely Spanish and the flight-deck “updates” in English followed by Spanish – no Portuguese (guess this is to do with the plane’s schedule that day?). easyJet air-side staff at Funchal are normally pretty good – Portuguese

  10. We have flown back to the UK (Bristol) on two occasions with Easyjet and they were faultless – Jon even stayed on board when we returned to Funchal and was able to go into the cockpit to speak to the captain who gave us an excellent commentary on flying times/heights/Madeira etc etc. I just wished Easyjet flew back to Liverpool from here as it would be ideal for us visiting relatives on Anglesey, North Wales.

  13. Agree, Easy Jet crew are very good, we fly regularity circa 20 times a year. There has been a problem with check in at Funchal, Easy Jets agents are very badly organised which can result in checking for Speedy boarding taking over an hour. TAP staff are OK but can be a little surly.

    The scheduled arrival date should have been November 30, but the national ports were conditioned and this forced the goods “had been up and down, between Lisbon and Porto, to see where it could fit,” he said.

    The situation was aggravated because the shipping had to be done without recourse to the missing ‘ferry’ the Naviera Armas, who in recent years was the chosen boat.

  19. from dnoticias Câmara de Lobos recovers single Franciscan convent Madeira

    The municipality of Câmara de Lobos is recovering the only of the five Franciscan convents which subsists in Madeira, an investment of 1.9 million that will be completed during the 500th anniversary of the Diocese of Funchal, in 2014.

    The president of the municipality, the Social Democrat Arlindo Gomes said the restoration of the Convent of San Bernardino, started about two months ago, “is a work long overdue.”

    “It’s the little heritage that persists in the city and threatened to collapse,” said Arlindo Gomes, highlighting the importance of the monastery, listed as a monument of municipal interest, the first to be built outside the capital of Madeira, Funchal.

    According to the mayor, the county is also related to the space that for centuries was the principal place of pilgrimage of the island, there lived and died Friar Pedro Guard (Guard, 1435 – Câmara de Lobos, 1505 ).

    The ‘Elucidário Madeirense’, whose third edition was published in 1965-1966, describes him as “a man of marked virtues” that the “people called and still calls the Holy Servant of God.”

    In 1905, on the occasion of the fourth centenary of the death of Father Pedro Guard, the Câmara de Lobos asked the Vatican “the official public worship and Holy Servant of God”, prohibited, about a century before, following the revocation of orders religious.

    “Fortunately, we were able, even in this situation of embarrassment and crisis, which could integrate the recovery of the convent in the current EU framework,” said the president of Câmara de Lobos.

    The rehabilitation of the convent is funding 85 percent of the European Intervene +, and the remaining amount will be divided between local authority, diocese – owns the space – and Franciscans who will settle again, on-site, which dates back the fifteenth century, first as an oratorio.

    The ‘Elucidário Madeirense’ refers to the Franciscans, “from the fleet that drove the earliest settlers” were “priests who served the first ecclesiastical functions” in the various chapels that were created on the island.

    The intervention in the convent covers the recovery of the main church and its annexes, including the chapel of St. Anthony, and the creation of a museum dedicated to Fray Pedro Guard and religious Mary Jane Wilson (India, 1840 – Câmara de Lobos, 1916 ), founder of the Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Victories, who also died on the spot, where he moved to be candidates for forming priests.

    The religious settled in Madeira aged 40, after converting to Catholicism, having multiplied their work in areas such as health, education and the needy, work that led the congregation, then to various countries.
