Property prices falling again

THE LATEST housing price index (houses and apartments) from the Cyprus Central Bank reports a fall of 1.8% in property prices during the fourth quarter of 2014, with the house prices falling 2.1% and apartment prices falling 1.5%.

DJ Ruda and DJ Andy Von Emmanouel at Clup Deep in Larnaca for one night in February

Club Deep in Larnaca invites anyone who loves to seize the musical moment to enjoy a blend of musical genres on Saturday with DJ Ruda and DJ Andy Von Emmanouel.

Starting off with DJ Ruda and his hip-hop, rap, soul and disco vibes. Ruda is a well-known DJ on the island as he has been spinning his music on many party scenes since 2001. In 2002 his music was making waves and he earned his first residency in the RnB bar, Indigo. This leads us to 2004 when he started to organise his own events and boat parties. Everything ran smoothly from there on, and in 2010 his talent for mixing, scratching and chopping in different styles caught the attention of the owner of the Castle Club in Ayia Napa, and that is when Ruda was crowned a member of the castle’s night life.

Now turning our attention to DJ Andy Von Emmanouel from Paphos, we find that the man behind the decks (who has all the ladies not just bobbing to his music but also enjoying some eye candy, as the DJ was named the ‘nightclub lifeguard’ by a local magazine) has been known to take clubs – including the Guaba beach bar in Limassol – by storm.

Emmanouel will surely be warming things up with his electro and progressive house music so be sure not to wear your best shoes on Saturday because with all the dancing around, you just might wear them out.

Solid Gold Vol.2
Live music with DJ Ruda and DJ Andy Von Emmanouel. February 28. Club Deep, Leoforos Athinon, Finikoudes, Larnaca. 11.55pm. €10 with a drink, €15 with two drinks. Tel: 70-007950

Skala Theater presents the play "The Fisherman and his Soul"

Skala Theater presents the play "The Fisherman and his Soul" based on the short story written by Oscar Wilde.

In The Fisherman and his Soul, a young Fisherman finds a Mermaid and wants nothing more than to marry her, but he cannot, for one cannot live underwater if one has a soul. He goes to his priest, but the priest tells him his soul is his most precious possession, and the soulless mermen are lost. He tries to sell it to merchants, who tell him it is not worth anything. He goes to a witch, who tells him his soul is his shadow, and says how it can be cut away with a viper-skin knife after he dances with her...

From: Saturday, February 14th, 2015
Until: Sunday, March 29th, 2015

Christine Sinclair will lead Canada's women's soccer team in the 2015 Cyprus Cup

Star striker Christine Sinclair will lead Canada's women's soccer team in the 2015 Cyprus Cup, the squad's final tournament prior to this summer's women's World Cup.

Coach John Herdman named his 24-player roster Monday, saying that the objective for Cyprus is build on team unity.

"We'll be only three months out from a World Cup with probably only a few more games after this tournament," said Herdman. "We're starting to define the players' roles and responsibilities in the team environment and the team culture."

Canada will open the tournament on March 4 against Scotland in Nicosia. They'll face South Korea two days later in Larnaca, before wrapping up Group A play on March 9 versus Italy in Nicosia.

The Canadians will field a mix of veterans, such as Karina LeBlanc, Erin McLeod and Melissa Tancredi, and rising stars such as Kadeisha Buchanan and Janine Beckie for the tournament, which falls about three months before Canada hosts the FIFA Women's World Cup.

"This Cyprus Cup has a clear outcome and that clear outcome is building that team cohesion similar to what we did in the Four Nations (in China) where we built a depth in the squad," Herdman said. "In Cyprus, it's about the cohesion in the group of players to go and win football matches."

Canada has won the Cyprus Cup three time, and will be gunning for its first title since 2011. The Canadians will also be looking to build on their good start to this year, winning three games in China en route to capturing the Bao'an Cup.

Canada finished second in Group A in last year's Cyprus Cup and were relegated to the fifth-place match where the beat Ireland 2-1.
