Ibiza — Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of Spain. It is kilometres from the city of Valencia and it is the third largest of the Balearic Islands, an autonomous community of Spain. Ibiza and the island of Formentera to its south are called the Pine Islands. The official name of the island is in Catalan Eivissa and its name in Spanish is Ibiza.
Phoenician colonists called the island Ibossim and it was later known to Romans as Ebusus.
In BC, Phoenician settlers founded a port on Ibiza, with the decline of Phoenicia after the Assyrian invasions, Ibiza came under the control of Carthage, also a former Phoenician colony. The island produced dye, salt, fish sauce, and wool, a shrine with offerings to the goddess Tanit was established in the cave at Es Cuieram, and the rest of the Balearic Islands entered Eivissas commercial orbit after BC.
Ibiza was a trading post along the Mediterranean routes. With the Carthaginian military failing on the Iberian mainland, Ibiza was last used by the fleeing Carthaginian General Mago to gather supplies and men before sailing to Minorca, for this reason, Ibiza today contains excellent examples of late Carthaginian-Punic civilization.
During the Roman Empire, the became a quiet imperial outpost. Ibiza together with the islands of Formentera and Minorca were invaded by the Norwegian King Sigurd I of Norway in the spring of on his crusade to Jerusalem. The island was conquered by Aragonese King James I inthe local Muslim population got deported as was the case with neighboring Majorca and elsewhere, and Christians arrived from Girona 6.

Soap opera — A soap opera, soap, or soapie, is a serial drama on television or radio that examines the lives of many characters, usually focusing on emotional relationships to the point of melodrama.
The term soap opera originated from such dramas being typically sponsored by soap manufacturers in the past, the first serial considered to be a soap opera was Painted Dreams, which debuted on October 20, on Chicago radio station WGN.
The first nationally broadcast radio soap opera was Clara, Lu, and Em, a crucial element that defines the soap opera is the open-ended serial nature of the narrative, with stories spanning several episodes.
One of the features that makes a television program a soap opera. While Spanish language telenovelas are sometimes called soap operas, telenovelas have conflicts that get resolved, but with soap operas each episode ends with a promise that the storyline is to be continued in another episode.
You spend more time even with the characters, the apparent villains grow less apparently villainous. Soap opera storylines run concurrently, intersect and lead into further developments, each episode may feature some of the shows current storylines, but not always all of them.
Soap operas rarely bring all the current storylines to a conclusion at the same time, when one storyline ends, there are several other story threads at differing stages of development. Soap opera episodes typically end on some sort of cliffhanger, evening soap operas and those that air at a rate of one episode per week are more likely to feature the entire cast in each episode, and to represent all current storylines in each episode. Evening soap operas and serials that run for only part of the year tend to bring things to a dramatic end-of-season cliffhanger, the article explained that at that time, many prime time series lost money, while daytime serials earned profits several times more than their production costs.243 - Ste Hay and Doug Carter - Hollyoaks E4 May 3rd 2012
Fitting in with these characteristics, most soap operas follow the lives of a group of characters who live or work in a particular place, the storylines follow the day-to-day activities and personal relationships of these characters. These elements may be found across the gamut of soap operas, Due to the prominence of English-language television, most soap-operas are completely English. In many soap operas, in particular daytime serials in the US, Soap operas from the United Kingdom and Australia tend to focus on more everyday characters and situations, and are frequently set in working class environments.
Many of the soaps produced in two countries explore social realist storylines such as family discord, marriage breakdown or financial problems. This diverges from US soap operas where such comedy is rare, UK soap operas frequently make a claim to presenting reality or purport to have a realistic style. Romance, secret relationships, extramarital affairs, and genuine hate have been the basis for many soap opera storylines, in US daytime serials, the most popular soap opera characters, and the most popular storylines, often involved a romance of the sort presented in paperback romance novels.
Crimes such as kidnapping, rape, and even murder may go unpunished if the perpetrator is to be retained in the ongoing story, Australian and UK soap operas also feature a significant proportion of romance storylines. She appeared in the series from 5 October until 13 Septemberactress Helen Russell-Clark — who went on to play Jem Costello — originally auditioned for the role, but the part was awarded to Barlow.
Producer Lucy Allan said Barlow was her favourite addition to the cast duringinitially portrayed as an imaginary character in a schizophrenia storyline, Rae was later revealed to be real when she arrived to study in Hollyoaks. She was central to a suicide storyline, and was part of a love triangle with Ste Hay and Brendan Brady. She miscarried during an argument with Brendan and subsequently feuded with him, Rae was originally characterised as a chav with a feisty persona, but underwent a transformation when she attempted to embrace domestic life with Ste.
During series four of the post-watershed spin-off Hollyoaks Later, Rae was murdered by a serial killer, the late broadcast slot allowed an explicit depiction of her death. Barlow hoped that Rae would be remembered for her nature. InBarlow won an All About Soap award for Raes love-triangle storyline, readers of the soap opera magazine Inside Soap indicated that they did not want Silas to murder Rae. At a July Hollyoaks press day, series producer Lucy Allan announced that there would be a big stunt involving schizophrenic character Barry Newt Newton in October of that year.

In earlyBarlow decided to leave Hollyoaks to pursue other projects and her departure was kept secret until her exit scenes were aired.

Entanglement in a Stendan love triangle then saw her life as a housewife and carer of small children. During her first appearances as a figment of Newts imagination, Rae was depicted as a goth with an emo persona, when she was reintroduced as a real person, Raes character was more reminiscent to that of a chav.
The character later underwent a period, she retained her strong personality. Barlow found the role challenging, as her own personality is dissimilar from her characters and she described Rae as someone who always makes her opinion known, and hoped she would be remembered for her strong-willed persona 9.

In Juneit was announced that Michaela would be returning to feature in the series of Hollyoaks Later. There's no limits when it comes to the late-night episodes, so we've been lucky that we could play this storyline in Later and do whatever we wanted with it. My death scene was absolutely incredible and I loved working with Jeff. To work with Jeff was actually a dream come true, because he's such an accredited actor. I had a party to say goodbye to everyone, and it was very emotional. I don't really like goodbyes and I don't like the whole fuss of it, so I was just saying to everyone that I'd 'see them later'!
Everyone has been so lovely at Hollyoaks and I wouldn't change it for the world.
E4: where does it go from here?
At the moment, I'm staying here, just until I get another secure job down in London. Until then, I'm just going to keep commuting up and down.
I'll miss working with them so much and they've taught me so much. I've learned so much from Emmett, and the same with Kieron. I'll miss Craig Vye too, and I'll miss Jorgie loads!
But I don't want to miss anyone out - they're all really lovely! They've been through so much, and it was a real turning point for Ste when Rae was pregnant and she found out about him and Brendan being together. Ste was so affected by everything that happened then, so I think he's going to be the most upset because he's been by her side throughout all the pregnancy and miscarriage stuff. We'll have to wait and see what happens with that, but Brendan was so threatening towards Rae and she was really frightened for her life afterwards.
I think people are going to think that Brendan is to blame. After all the ups and downs, Ste knows exactly what the relationship between Rae and Brendan has been like and all the problems they've had.
I'm so lucky to have had the role of Rae, as I've loved the scenes where she's been able to have control over Brendan. She always felt like she had the upper hand because she knew he was gay - until Brendan pushed to the point where he was threatening her. It's great that I won an award before I left Hollyoaks!
Hollyoaks EXCLUSIVE: Kieron Richardson calls for Hollyoaks Later return and teases autumn stunt
And hopefully the storyline will continue and Rae's death will cause some conflict between Ste and Brendan. I don't really know where things are heading after this, but I think that Rae's death will definitely make a mark on Ste and Brendan.
I get on well with Craig and Abi too, so it was such a fun storyline to work on. I wasn't expecting the twist that Rae was involved, and the response I got on Twitter was absolutely incredible - I had so many messages from people saying, 'Oh my God, I can't believe it's you - you're the third girl!
The parties, the people and the photoshoots have all been fantastic - I've absolutely had the time of my life.
