Local man finds success in e-sports Josh Leesman of Cranbrook is a lead commentator in the world’s most played video game

S a lly Mac Don al d Townsman Staff

A Cranbrook man is travelling the globe commentating the world’s most played video game, and this past weekend he held the stage before 8,000 people in person and one million people

online. Josh Leesman, 25, grew up in Cranbrook but moved to Santa Monica, California, in February to work as a game analyst for Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends. Since then, he has pro-

vided play-by-play analysis at competitive gaming tournaments – known as “esports” - in Seattle, Anaheim, San Francisco, Raleigh, Boston, Los Angeles and Poland. League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle

arena game played by 12 million people every day, with 70 million registered players from 145 countries. Each match of League of Legends features two teams of five players picking superhero-like characters with special powers called Cham-

clared League of Legends the most played game in the world by hours played per month, beating out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, World of Warcraft, and every Facebook game.

Things are about to get a lot more oompa loompa around here this weekend Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

The Canadian Mental Health Association is hosting its third annual tasty fundraiser, a Chocolate Affair on October 19 at the Heritage Inn. The evening will feature a dessert and silent auction, with tasty treats galore for guests to sample and bid on. Things will get a little competitive as dessert chefs from new to pro face

off in a challenge to create the best dessert. The winner in each of the three skill categories will receive a getaway package and the crowd will vote in a People’s Choice. There will be local celebrity judges on hand to savour the winning entries. The judges are Denise Pallesen of Nutter’s, Michelle Shypitka of Sweet Gestures, Jennifer Kent of The Drive Radio and Youth Ambas-

sadors Brianna Kennedy and Taylor Miller. The event will get a whole lot more oompa-loompa when Mr. Villy Vonka shows up. The judges will be more interactive this year, and competitors will be able to ham it up for as many as five points to get an edge over the field. “It’s really just to encourage a fun competitive environment,” said Amber Cuthill,

The silent auction will feature many great items and in between tasting the delectable desserts and sipping on wine, guests can hit one of the Black Jack tables put on by the Kinette Club. Cuthill said the auction is going to be something guests won’t want to miss. “Each year it gets better and better,” she said. All the proceeds from the evening will support CMHA programs that receive little to no funding every year. The CMHA also enjoys the chance to talk about their programs and activities for those who may not know what the association is doing in the community. “A lot of it has to do with just bringing awareness to who we are and what we do,” Cuthill said. Advance tickets are $20 and include tastings and two glasses of wine. They’re available at the CMHA office at 39 13th Ave. S.

Local man rides wave of e-sports popularity Continued from page 1 For example, FarmVille 2, the most popular game on Facebook, has 8.5 million daily users. Since 2004, popular video game Halo has recorded 2 billion hours of playing time, while League of Legends records around 1 billion hours of playing time each month alone. “It’s pretty crazy to imagine how big League of Legends has gotten,” Leesman told The Townsman. “I probably don’t realize the actual significance of being involved yet.” Under his game moniker Jatt, Leesman began playing League of Legends in the fall of 2009, quickly becoming very good at it. So much so that in September 2011, Leesman was signed to professional e-sports team Dignitas. As a member of the five-person League of Legends team, Leesman received sponsorship to play in tournaments all over the world. During his three-

month professional career, Leesman played for Dignitas at four tournaments in Atlantic City, New York, Providence and South Korea. His team placed first in the IPL tournament in Atlantic City on October 9, 2011. Leesman retired as a professional player just before Christmas last year, when he applied for a job at Riot Games. He was hired in February and made the move from Cranbrook to developer headquarters in Santa Monica, California, where he now develops characters in the game. In addition to that role, Leesman began commentating games at League of Legends tournaments in January. He is now one of Riot’s lead commentators, known as casters. Leesman said his passion lies in casting, rather than in playing professionally. “I enjoy casting more. I get to teach people about the game and hopefully increase

Also playing is hyper stressful, and wasn’t really for me in the long run,” he said.

On October 13, Leesman casted the League of Legends world championships at the University of Southern California’s Galen Center, which is typically reserved for basketball games.

Last weekend, it was transformed into a mecca for League of Legends fans, who flocked from all over the world to see Taipei Assassins beat Azubu Frost to take the title and win $1 million. One

million people tuned in to watch online, showing the burgeoning popularity of e-sports worldwide. While esports have been broadcast on U.S. television in the past, it never caught on. Orga-

nizers have forgone the old-school medium in favour of streaming matches online, where they can sell their own advertising and charge subscription fees. “It was a thrill to cast in front of that many people; how could it not be? I was only slightly nervous before the show, but once the games started I was just talking about it, which comes naturally.” While e-sports have been around for more than 15 years, the genre has yet to achieve mainstream success in North America, though it’s practically a national pastime in South Korea. That’s shifted over the past few years, as technology has evolved, Internet speeds have become faster and more reliable and a generation of spectating gamers have grown up. “E-sports becoming a thing in North America is something I’ve wanted to happen for years, and it looks to be turning a corner now,” said Leesman.

Aviation Council honours Cranbrook airport S a l ly M acD o n a l d Townsman Staff

The Canadian Rockies International Airport has been recognized as the most exceptional regional airport by the BC Aviation Council. The Cranbrook airport will be awarded the William Templeton Award on October 25 for aviation market development, community outreach and environmental initiatives. “Every year there is only one award given for this division, which is the exceptional development of a regional airport,” said managing director Tristen Chernove. The Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC) is being recognized for aviation market development, community outreach and environmental initiatives. “This award means a lot to us here because it is one of the few in B.C. that focuses on the community of our peers,” said Chernove. He recognized the hard work of airport staff, but said it wouldn’t have bee possible without cooperation

from the airport’s owner: the City of Cranbrook. “Nothing is done without full support of the city, and it shows the city shares the same values we do with having a sustainable airport,” said Chernove. “I’m honoured to receive the award as the airport manager but not only is it all the staff being on board, it’s also the city as the owner of the airport leading it from that side.” Mayor Wayne Stetski said the award reflects positively on the Cranbrook area as a whole. “It portrays us in a very positive light for anybody that is looking to come to Cranbrook,” said Stetski. “I’m proud of what Tristen and the staff have done out there. They are well deserving of the award and it bodes well for all of our futures.” Chernove pointed to the airport’s initiatives towards environmental, economic and community sustainability as contributing to the award. In the environmental as-

pect, YXC rebuilt its terminal in 2008 with LEED standards building practices. There are solar water heater panels on the roof, the airport has an idle free zone in the drop-off lane, and its janitorial program uses green cleaning methods such as negative ion technology and UV technology. YXC was the first airport in B.C. to install waterless urinals. “On the economic side, the focus on our nomination was around what we have done in marketing our existing service and marketing to attract a new air service,” said Chernove. “It also focuses on what we have done to increase the appeal of our airport when it comes to capital investment,” he added, pointing to last year’s runway overlay, and a bid to upgrade airfield infrastructure this year. In the community, YXC recently used a food and beverage opportunity to give to the Cranbrook Food Bank, and it supported local artists through the summer by hosting performing art-

Airport staff volunteer in the community, and make social connections through the airport’s Facebook page. YXC also hosts practicum

students through the BCIT airport operations program. “Being recognized for sustainability fits with our values really well,” said Chernove.

He will travel to the Silver Wings award ceremony on Thursday, October 25 at Vancouver International Airport to accept the William Templeton Award.

Yes, Eddie’s philandering ways have pretty much doomed him to the singles bar for this year. And nobody likes that — it’s such a meat market. Carolyn Grant is Editor of the Kimberley Daily Bulletin

Voyage of the Archimedes Palimpsest

E

arly in the 13th century, a monk stationed in Jerusalem takes a book from his shelf, and begins to erase its contents. Books at this time were remarkably costly to make, and many were recycled in this fashion: Text during this time was handwritten on parchment — treated animal skins prepared to make them suitable for writing on (a single book could take hundreds of animal skins). For reuse, one simply had to scrape away the book’s previous text, which is exactly what this monk did, so he could fill the book with a series of prayers. What he didn’t know was that he was scraping away the only existing copy of the mathematical treaties of Archimedes. An ancient Greek mathematician, Archimedes was centuries ahead of his time. His work is often called “the eighth wonder of the world” … or would have been had it not been erased to make room for a new prayer book. After completing the series of prayers, the monk probably returned the book to the shelf,

and began on his next project. An inventory list reveals the book made its way to a sister monastery in Istanbul. Unfortunately it arrived in the middle of the Fourth Crusade, whose participants were burning books en masse. How this book escaped the flames is unknown, but it did and weathered much more for the next 700 years. It shows up again in 1906, when a Danish scholar stumbles upon it in Turkey. Its MIKE’S ink has faded BOOKNOTES over the years and — with the Mike help of a magSelby nifying glass and a candle — the scholar can faintly make out a second text underneath the main one. The scholar’s examination ends here, as someone steals the book out from under him. It surfaces again in 1930. A couple from France purchase it from a Turkish antiques dealer, put it in their basement with all their other knickknacks, and promptly forget about it for the next 70 years. This brings us to 1991, when the descendants of the French antique collectors bring it to Christie’s, wanting

The Archimedes Palimpsest to know if it is worth anything. It is appraised at $1.2 million, but actually sells for twice as much in 1998. Since then, the prayer book — now titled as “The Archimedes Palimpsest” — resides in an art museum in Baltimore, Maryland, where modern imaging techniques have been used to expose the entire text of Archimedes’ lost writings. While Archimedes is renowned for his mathematical genius, experts were stunned to find out just how advanced he was. The lost text revealed Archimedes had worked out calculus and the principal of

infinity a full 2,000 years before modern science rediscovered them. The text of the “Archimedes Palimpsest” was set down by the man himself on a series of papyrus scrolls, around 210 B.C. It appears these were copied onto more scrolls, as papyrus doesn’t last very long. Experts estimate it was about 1,000 A.D. when the text was copied onto the parchment book. But by whom, and for what reason remain a mystery. Mike Selby is Reference Librarian with the Cranbrook Public Library.

Edmonton council member wants to see Oilers’ finacials EDMONTON — An Edmonton city councillor said it’s “shameful’’ to debate handing over millions more taxpayer dollars to Edmonton Oilers owner Daryl Katz for a new arena given they are not even allowed to see his team’s books. “How can we even consider giving any tax money to a billionaire team owner when we haven’t seen detailed financials. That’s just not fair,’’ Coun. Kerry Diotte said to city manager Simon Farbrother at a meeting Wednesday to decide the fate of the stalled arena project. “And we’re proceeding anyway to do a partnership with somebody and we don’t know how much money they make or lose? It’s ridiculous,’’ said Diotte. Farbrother, tasked with negotiating the deal with Katz, told Diotte his officials are only doing what was asked of them. “What council supported in terms of going forward is to support the investment of a new arena in the downtown core under a set of very defined conditions.’’ Canadian Press

Avalanche open season on the road TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Avalanche are rolling down the the Lower Mainland. Both men’s and women’s volleyball teams from the College of the Rockies are on the road to open the new Pacwest season with a four-game stretch this weekend, as they play Douglas College and Capilano University each twice. The season is particularly special for both Avalanche teams, as the College of the Rockies will host the provincial championships at the end. However, the trick will be getting into it. The host team does not automatically qualify for entry into the tournament like it used to, so both Avalanche teams will have to challenge themselves to make sure their record is good enough to make the cut. “I think that would

be kind of embarrassing if we’re hosting provincials, but we’re not in it,” said Jenna Swetlikoff, a middle with the women’s team. “So I think everyone’s going to be pushing harder to win so that we will be in provincials because that’d be awful if we were lining in our own gym. “It’ll put a little bit of pressure on us but it’ll force us to work harder.”

Jenna Swetlikoff The girls have had a pretty successful exhibition season, with a four-match tournament in Red Deer that ended with a few very close losses and one win. Following that, both Avalanche teams hosted a preseason tournament

at home and the ladies earned three wins in a row. “Everyone was clicking really well, everyone was really positive,” said Swetlikoff. “When something went wrong, no one was getting mad at each other, no one was blaming each other. “I think when it came down to it we were just pushing really hard when it mattered and if we were ahead, not letting it slide from under us, so overall, I think just the energy on the court was really good.” That energy has translated into some good performances on the court, which has allowed the team to identify it’s strengths. “When we’re passing well, we can hit really well,” said Swetlikoff. “We got some new girls that can just kill the ball, but we can only hit like that if we pass well so I think we lack a bit in our defence, but

when we are playing well, our offence is really great.” Ladies head coach Agata Bendkowska said her team is looking to show the Pacwest league what they can do this year. “The team is ready, we want to go,” said Bendkowska. “We are going to do the best we can—of course we want to win, that’s our goal— so hopefully we can succeed.” The men’s team is just as excited to get the season started, and while the guys didn’t have the preseason success like their counterparts, they still feel like they’re ready, according to fifth-year player David Wiebe. The Rumble in the Rockies preseason tournament in their home court against some high-level CIS teams gave the guys a good test of their skills as a team, he continued. “We showed that we

can compete with even those kinds of teams with that calibre, so I feel like at the college league, we’ll be alright,” Wiebe said.

David Wiebe Wiebe said the men’s Avalanche team has something it hasn’t had for the last few years: solid defence. “We can dig the ball up, we can chase down balls that some teams might not be able to get,” he continued. “We’re going to have a big block, so our blocking isn’t going to be an issue, it’s just going to be the defence around that and our commitment to hard work, which is communication and effort.”

Nitros ranks swell with new additions TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters have some new additions to the roster who’ve already had an impact, while another joined them after Tusday’s game against the Columbia Valley Rockies. Adam Hodge and Mitchell Loose have been with the club for the last two weeks, coming in from Alberta, while goaltender Bryce Halverson was recently added to the roster along with Brin Feledichuk, who was acquired in a trade with the Osoyoos Storm a few days ago. The Nitros, through the recruiting efforts of assistant coach Jordan Foreman, have picked up a few players from

Alberta in the offseason because a Junior B club folded in Whitecourt and moved into the AJHL. Both Loose and Hodge were a part of that team, along with other Nitro players such as Connor Tetlock, Riley Helleksen and Matt Gann. “[Loose] played in Junior A the last two years and he was playing in Whitecourt this year and things just weren’t happening for him up there,” said Foreman. “We contacted each other and he wanted to come down here and play, because he knew a couple of the guys. “He’s a big kid, great skater, really fast. He’s going to be a big force.” Like Loose, Hodge

came via the Whitecourt connection as well. “He actually came to our summer camp so we had our eye on him and once he got released, we contacted each other and he decided to come back here and play.

“He’s a big power forward, he’ll help us in the long run, for sure.” Hodge has found his place in the lineup and is a little surprised at the KIJHL’s pace of play from what he’s used to in Whitecourt. “For Junior B, it’s a lot

more competitive, every game so far we’ve played has been one-goal games so it’s pretty close,” said Hodge. The Dynamiters also got stronger in net, picking up Bryce Halverson, a goaltender who’s bounced around junior leagues with the AJHL and BCHL. Halverson spent time with the Calgary Mustangs and the Powell River Kings, but ended up in the Junior B ranks with the Victoria Grizzlies of the VIJHL last year where his talents helped the club win a league championship. “From the time that he got there to the time they won the championship, they went 13-0 so thats some good stats for sure,” said Foreman.

Halverson stood in net and earned the victory against the Rockies on Tuesday night, turning away 27 shots. Also joining the Nitro ranks is Feledichuk, who arrived during the third period of that game from Osoyoos, where he was playing with the Storm. Foreman said the Storm owed the Dynamiters something as part of “future considerations” for a trade between the two teams two years ago. After negotiating back and forth, the two franchises decided on Feledichuk. “He’s going to bring a little bit of physical play for us I think. More of a stay-at-home defence man,” said Foreman.

to owners.’’ “Simply put, the owners’ new proposal, while not quite as Draconian as their previous proposals, still represents enormous reductions in player salaries and individual contracting rights,’’ Fehr wrote. “As you will see, at the five per cent industry growth rate the owners predict, the salary reduction over six years exceeds $1.6 billion. What do the owners offer in return?’’ Players received 57 per cent of revenue at the end of the expired CBA and would be surrendering $231 million per year, based on last year’s numbers, by moving to a 50-50 split. The NHL’s latest offer was the third it has delivered to the union since talks began in June and included fewer concessions than it had previously asked for. For example, it said the revenue split would be based on the same definition of hockey-related revenue used in the last agreement, pending “mutual clarification of existing interpretations and settlements.’’ Some of the other highlights of the offer in-

clude: — an official salary cap of $59.9 million for the 2012-13 season, with the provision that teams can actually spend up to $70.2 million for one year to ease the transition. — a new rule that would allow teams to retain a portion of a player’s salary in trades. — the reduction of entry-level contracts to two years. — a five-year term limit on every other contract and a stipulation that the average annual value can only vary up to five per cent from the first season. This is a mechanism designed to eliminate the long-term, back-diving deals that became popular during the previous CBA. — the elimination of re-entry waivers. — an annual revenue-sharing pool of $200 million, half of which is raised from the 10 richest teams, and the creation of a committee to determine how the money is distributed. The NHLPA would be given representation on the committee. — the introduction of a “neutral’’ third-party

arbitrator to handle appeals on supplemental discipline with a “clearly erroneous’’ standard of review. “There’s a lot of parts of the proposal that we don’t feel are very good from our standpoint and we’re still giving up huge concessions in a lot of different areas,’’ said Jets captain Andrew Ladd. “We’ll address that in our proposal and go from there.’’ It remains to be seen just how far they’ll go. With a deadline now in place for trying to preserve an 82-game season, the sides have to cover a lot of ground quickly. Thursday’s counter-proposal from the NHLPA, and the league’s reaction to it, should provide a pretty good indication of how realistic it is for them to get there. “We do not yet know whether this proposal is a serious attempt to negotiate an agreement, or just another step down the road,’’ Fehr wrote in his letter to players and agents. “The next several days will be, in large part, an effort to discover the answer to that question.’’

FACTS You Need to Know About…

The Temporary Foreign Workers Program With

MLA,

Bill Bennett

1

Recently the Government of Canada approved some temporary foreign Chinese workers to come to BC to help take an underground coal sample from NE BC. Both the Mining Association of Canada and the Mining Association of BC have indicated there is a dire shortage of workers with the skills and experience to work in an underground coal mine.

2

If these temporary foreign workers had been allowed by the federal government to build this mine and work indefinitely, I would be vigorously opposed. However, they are only permitted to come in long enough to take a bulk sample of underground coal. A matter of months, not years.

3

If the bulk sample gives the mining company the results they need, hopefully they will make a decision to build this coal mine. Then, BC will have a reason to invest in training workers specifically for underground coal mining. These temporary foreign workers have the skills BC needs to take that bulk sample and to move this project forward so that good new jobs and the spin-off benefits for British Columbians are created.

The purpose of the exercise and workshop is to explore the emergency operations outlined in the recently completed “Farmed Animal Mass Carcass Disposal Emergency Plan.” If you would like to participate in the exercise, please contact RDEK Emergency Services Coordinator, Carol Lind at 250-489-2791 or 1-888-478-7335 or email clind@rdek.bc.ca.

“Having Ryan here gave me time to plan for business growth and strategy. “

The Emergency Plan was funded in part by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC through the Livestock Waste Tissue initiative. The Foundation manages and distributes federal and provincial funds in support of innovative projects for the benefit of BC’s agriculture and agri-food industries.

Rain shuts down Game 3 of NLCS series B.C. Lions lineman R.B. Fallstrom Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Game 3 of the NL championship series was delayed because of rain in the seventh inning with the St. Louis Cardinals leading the San Francisco Giants 3-1. The game at Busch Stadium was stopped with two outs in the bottom of the seventh and heavy rain was still falling 1 1/2 hours after the tarp came out. Major League Baseball anticipated there would be no problems resuming the game not long after 8 p.m. CDT, noting radar showed the weather system was expected to leave the area. The Cardinals and Giants are tied at one game each. The big winners in the delay were the beer vendors, by a single out. Alcohol sales are cut off after the seventh inning in all stadiums. Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer off Giants ace Matt Cain in the third inning. Car-

penter came into the game after Cardinals star Carlos Beltran left after the first inning because of a strained left knee. This is the third game delayed by rain this post-season. Two games between the Yankees and Orioles in Baltimore began late because of inclement weather. An announcement was posted on the scoreboard shortly after the downpour began, saying a severe weather warning had been issued by the National Weather Service. The rain intensified less than 10 minutes after the field was covered, chasing most fans who had remained in their seats up to that point. Spotters for the National Weather Service reported 60 mph winds in nearby St. Charles County. A highlight of the delay was a Pac-Man style chase. Ushers pursued and finally apprehended a fan who jumped out of the

stands to get a baseball near the warning track in left field, and then jutted in and out of aisles to elude several ushers who had been closing in. The storm had been widely anticipated. Some forecasts called for a 70 per cent chance of rain. Both managers fielded questions Tuesday and Wednesday about whether the probability of precipitation would affect their selection of the starting pitcher. Before the game, the Giants’ Bruce Bochy and the Cardinals’ Mike Matheny said weather was something they couldn’t worry about. Kyle Lohse worked 5 2-3 innings for St. Louis and Cain was lifted after giving up a run-scoring groundout to Shane Robinson just before the umpires called for the tarpaulin. “I’ve been caught before where you try to predict what’s going to happen with the rain and started,’’ Bochy

said. “Just a couple years ago I started a pitcher thinking the same thing and it didn’t rain for four or five innings. Then I put my starter in and then it started raining, and so it came back to bite me.’’ Matheny said rainy weather was ``part of being in the Midwest.’’

“We get this quite a bit,’’ Matheny said. “We understand that these guys do a good job of forecasting, but you never know for sure.’’ The tarp came out before the Giants could announce a replacement for Cain, although Javier Lopez was trotting in from the bullpen.

Rain postpones ALCS in Detriot C anadian Press

DETROIT — Game 4 of the AL championship series between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been postponed by bad weather in the area _ although Comerica Park itself was still dry when the game was called. Wednesday night’s game was rescheduled for Thursday at 4:07 p.m., when Game 5 was originally slated to be played. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series 3-0.

The first pitch had been scheduled for 8:07 p.m., but shortly before then the crowd was informed of the delay. A radar forecast for the Detroit area was eventually posted on the scoreboard video screen, as if to explain to fans why there was no baseball despite what was still rather pleasant weather at the ballpark. The postponement was announced after a delay of about 1 hour, 10 minutes.

in trouble for offensive tweet

C anadian Press

VANCOUVER — B.C. Lions defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell was been fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL on Wednesday for posting a message containing a racial slur on his Twitter account. While tweeting about Tuesday’s U.S. presidential debate, Mitchell posted a message with a term that is derogatory towards Chinese people. He later apologized for using the word, saying he didn’t know it was offensive. The 27-year-old from Virginia Beach, Va., was due to return from injury for Friday’s game against Edmonton after missing the last three weeks. But the team says Mitchell will now not suit up against the Eskimos. “This decision is a response to Khalif’s inappropriate comments made on his Twitter feed this morning and despite

his public expression of remorse, we believe this is the best course of action for our organization at this time,’’ Lions CEO Dennis Skulsky said in a statement. “Let me state very clearly on behalf of our entire organization that Khalif’s message was completely inappropriate and we apologize to anyone who was offended by it. “The B.C. Lions, our players, coaches and staff hold ourselves to the highest standard and we are proud to represent our culturally diverse community.’’ The league said Mitchell broke the guidelines of its social media policy, which states that players publishing online postings “that may bring the CFL into disrepute, including posts that condone harassment, discrimination or violence’’ are subject to discipline from the league commissioner.

RCMP make major child porn bust in Prairies, North Jennifer Gr aham Canadian Press

REGINA — Police say a boy in Saskatchewan was rescued from years of abuse during a police investigation that targeted online child predators on the Prairies and the North. The RCMP’s Canadian Police Centre for Missing and Exploited Children announced Wednesday that 21 people have been arrested and 16 of them charged so far as part of Operation Snapshot. The charges include invitation to sexual touching, Internet luring, indecent exposure and accessing and distributing

child pornography. Det. Sgt. Darren Parisien, who led the operation, said hundreds of thousands of images were found on more than 100 computers or hard drives and 1,000 disks. “The vast majority involve children under the age of 12,’’ Parisien said at a news conference in Regina. “But more and more increasingly, we’re dealing with images of infants, toddlers ... children who can’t even speak. That’s becoming a disturbing trend that we’re seeing in a lot of cases and certainly that was present in a num-

ber of the investigations involved with this project.’’ Operation Snapshot involved 30 multi-agency police investigations in 15 different communities in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Ten of the people charged are in Saskatchewan, four are in Alberta and two are in Manitoba. More arrests and charges are expected. “Our preliminary investigations are showing that some of these offenders had massive collections of child pornography and have been building these col-

lections for years,’’ said Regina police Staff Sgt. Ron Weir, who is the coordinator of the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit. Weir said it’s not that Saskatchewan has more sexual predators than other parts of the country. Authorities in Saskatchewan just had more resources to dedicate to the project, he said. In the case of the boy in Saskatoon, police said he was abused by a family member’s roommate. The abuse started five years ago, when the boy was about eight or nine years old, and ended when police executed a search warrant last June. A man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the boy, has already pleaded guilty and been sentenced to 30 months in jail. Parisien would not specifically say how the alleged sexual predators were found for fear of driving them to another technology or location. He did say that officers went to places such as file-sharing networks where pornography was traded. They also posed as children or other predators. Parisien said every picture or video has clues — such as clothing, location or a language spoken by a child — that could help authorities find other children. “We try to identify and locate every child in every picture and video we can,’’ said Parisien. “Obviously that is a huge task in the hundreds of thousands of images that were seized just in this one fourmonth project. There would be thousands of different children involved from every corner of the world. And some of those we will have no possible avenue of even knowing where in the world they were. “But we’re hopeful that some of those other images can give clues to help identify these children and take them out of situations where they’re being abused.’’ Parisien cautioned that many of the images did not appear to come from overseas. “Most of the images that we’re seeing now are homegrown,’’ he said.

scandal swirling around the cyclist escalated. Armstrong announced his move at the charity in an earlymorning statement. Within minutes, Nike said that it would end its relationship with him “due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade.’’ Nike said it will continue to support Livestrong. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a massive report last week detailing allegations of widespread doping by Armstrong and his teams when he won the Tour de France seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005. The document’s purpose was to show why USADA has banned him from cycling for life and ordered 14 years of his career results erased _ including those Tour titles. It contains sworn statements from 26 witnesses, including 11 former teammates.

Earth sized planet found right next door, but way too hot Seth Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — European astronomers say that just outside our solar system they’ve found a planet that’s the closest you can get to Earth in location and size. It is the type of planet they’ve been searching for across the Milky Way galaxy and they found it circling a star right next door — 25 trillion miles (40 trillion kilometres) away. But the Earth-like planet is so hot its surface may be like molten lava. Life cannot survive the 2,200 degree heat of the planet, so close to its star that it circles it every few days. The astronomers who found it say it’s likely there are other planets circling the same star, a little farther

away where it may be cool enough for water and life. And those planets might fit the not-too-hot, not-toocold description sometimes call the Goldilocks Zone. That means that in the star system Alpha Centauri B, a just-right planet could be closer than astronomers had once imagined. It’s so close that from some southern places on Earth, you can see Alpha Centauri B in the night sky without a telescope. But it’s still so far that a trip there using current technology would take tens of thousands of years. But the wow factor of finding such a planet so close has some astronomers already talking about how to speed up a rocket trip there. Scientists have already

started pressuring NASA and the European Space Agency to come up with missions to send something out that way to get a look at least. The research was released online Tuesday in the journal Nature. There has been a European-U.S. competition to find the nearest and most Earthlike exoplanets — planets outside our solar system. So far scientists have found 842 of them, but think they number in the billions. While the newly dis-

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — South Africa’s department of environmental affairs says 455 of the country’s endangered rhinoceros have been illegally hunted and killed so far this year. Officials said the number killed this year is already more than the 448 rhinos killed all of last year. Kruger National Park saw the most rhinos killed this year with 272, which is 20 more than were killed there

last year, according to South African Press Association. Department spokesman Albi Modise said Tuesday that 207 people had been arrested for illegal trading in rhino horn. South Africa is home to some 20,000 rhinos, more than any other country. Growing Asian demand for rhino horn, a purported remedy for various illnesses, is believed to be behind the poaching spike

NEWS Celebs, non-celebs ask Romney, Obama to leave them out of campaign Associated Press

WASHINGTON — What do a Navy mom, Big Bird and AARP have in common? They want President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney to leave them alone.

Both candidates are encountering cross words from third parties they’ve mentioned in their campaign ads, stump speeches and debate zingers. The creator of NBC’s “Friday Night Lights’’

asked Romney to stop using the show’s slogan. The mother of a former Navy SEAL killed in Libya also asked him to stop talking about her son on the trail. AARP and the producers of “Sesame

Street’’ have asked Obama to quit mentioning them in ads.

LONDON — Police in Britain have apologized for using a stun gun to subdue a blind stroke victim mistakenly thought to be carrying a sword. Lancashire Police Chief Stuart Williams

said Wednesday police brought the victim to a local hospital to be checked out after they realized they had used the weapon against the wrong man. He says police “deeply regret’’ the incident, which happened

after police received multiple reports that a man was walking through the town of Chorley “armed with a samurai sword.’’ Williams says an urgent investigation has been launched into the incident and that the

matter will also be reviewed by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. Police say a different man was arrested in connection with the sword reports, but was not charged with any crimes.

Putin says only sanctions can halt Russian arms sales to Syria Associated Press

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin says only U.N. sanctions can restrict Russia’s arms sales abroad, a strong signal that Moscow will keep ignoring Western objections to Russia’s arms sales to

civil war-stricken Syria. Russia and China have blocked U.N. sanctions on the Syrian regime by using their vetoes at the U.N. Security Council. Putin’s comments Wednesday follow Turkey’s move to force the

landing of a Syrian jet that Turkish officials said carried military equipment. Russia said it carried radar parts which were legitimate cargo. Putin didn’t specifically refer to last week’s plane incident, but

added that “no one and under no pretext can dictate Russia ...whom to trade with.’’ Moscow has said it will honour earlier weapons contracts with the Syrian government, which is fighting an uprising that began in March 2011.

Florida man charged in NYC with illegally importing dinosaur fossils Suze tte L aboy Associated Press

MIAMI _ A Florida man was charged Wednesday with smuggling dinosaur fossils into the United States, including a nearly complete Tyrannosaurus Bataar skeleton from Mongolia, federal prosecutors said.

Eric Prokopi, a selfdescribed “commercial paleontologist’’ who buys and sells whole and partial dinosaur skeletons, was arrested at his home in Gainesville, according to a complaint unsealed by prosecutors. He was charged with smuggling goods into the U.S. and

interstate sale and receipt of stolen goods. He also faces one count of conspiracy to smuggle illegal goods, possess stolen property and make false statements. If convicted on all of the charges, he could face up to 35 years in prison.

The arrest was handled by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement the investigation “uncovered a one-man black market in prehistoric fossils.’’ The U.S. govern-

Tyrannosaurus Bataar ment seized the Tyrannosaurus skeleton earlier this year after it was sold by an auction house for $1.05 million. Prokopi did not immediately respond to a phone call, but his attorney has said he did nothing wrong. Prokopi has been involved in a lawsuit in New York over the auction because the Mongolian government has said it may belong to them. Prokopi’s attorney in the lawsuit, Michael McCullough, has said his client is entitled to keep the creature he spent a year putting to-

gether at great expense. McCullough has said the U.S. government was incorrect when it alleged that the skeleton pieces were brought into the country in one $15,000 shipment. He said there were three other shipments and only 37 per cent of the completed skeleton came from one specimen. Federal prosecutors said Prokopi misrepresented the identity, origin and value of the skeleton of the Tyrannosaurus bataar, a dinosaur that lived approximately 70 million years ago.

Prokopi also is accused of illegally importing from Mongolia the skeleton of a Saurolophus, another dinosaur from the late Cretaceous period that he sold to a gallery in California along with fossils of two other dinosaurs native to Mongolia, Gallimimus and Oviraptor mongoliensis. He also imported the fossilized remains of a Microraptor, a small, flying dinosaur from China, the complaint said. Prokopi brought the fossils into the country between 2010 and 2012, prosecutors said.

Texas attorney general intervenes so cheerleaders can use Bible verses Chris Tomlinson Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says he will defend high school cheerleaders who want to use Bible verses on banners at football games. Abbott said Wednesday he is intervening in a lawsuit that cheerleaders at Kountze High School filed against the school district. The district told the cheerleaders to stop using Bible verses

after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained. The atheist group argued that using banners with phrases such as, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me,’’ violates the First Amendment rule against the government establishing a religion. Abbott said that since the cheerleaders create the banners without school funding, they qualify as free speech and should not be banned.

India’s top court lifts ban on tourism in tiger reserves C anadian Press

NEW DELHI _ India’s top court has lifted a ban on tourism in tiger reserves across the country but asked local governments to regulate visitors. In July the Supreme Court had ordered a complete ban on tourism inside tiger reserves while the government formulated new guidelines. The ban was lifted late Tuesday

after the government announced new rules aimed at allowing tourism to coexist with conservation. According to the new rules, no new tourist facilities can be created in the tiger areas and only 20 per cent of tiger habitats will be open to visitors. India is home to more than half of the world’s estimated 3,200 tigers, with most living in wildlife reserves set up since the 1970s.

Premier offers olive branch to B.C. teachers Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark announced a review of teacher bargaining Wednesday, with a goal of reaching a 10year agreement that would put an end to decades of battles with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Clark and Education

Minister Don McRae acknowledged at a Vancouver news conference that changing the culture of confrontation between the B.C. government and teachers won’t be easy, and vowed to put even the most contentious issues on the table for discussion. That includes class size and special needs

fruitless negotiations and work-to-rule by teachers, the union membership endorsed the two-year contract extension reached in June with governmentimposed mediator Charles Jago. McRae said the review will take advantage of work currently being done by a task force of school trustees, and two previous reviews completed by independent mediators. In his 2007 report, mediator Vince Ready said the union and the province’s bargaining agent, the B.C. Public School Employers’ As-

sociation, need a system for agreeing on the financial costs of various proposals before they can hope to settle contracts. McRae said he has talked with Lambert about the proposal, and he wants to have consultations with teachers, trustees, parent advisory councils and administrators complete by the end of November. “If there are policy changes or legislative amendments that we need to make, we want to get this work done before bargaining resumes next spring,” McRae said.

Investigators seek motive in border shooting Gene Johnson Associated Press

SEATTLE — A Canadian border guard shot in her booth at a busy U.S.-Canada crossing north of Seattle remained hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday as investigators worked to determine the identity and motive of the man who shot her and committed suicide. The suspect, driving a van with Washington license plates, shot Officer Lori Bowcock in the neck as he was entering Canada at 2 p.m. Tuesday, prompting officials to close the border crossing at Blaine. The man then died at the scene of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said. Canadian officials estimated they would reopen the Peace Arch crossing Wednesday afternoon. The British Columbia homicide investigation team handling the probe was treating the case as an attempted murder. Agents with Homeland Security Investigations were assisting by following leads on the U.S. side of the border, said Andrew Munoz, spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He declined to elaborate.

The border crossing about is the third-busiest between the U.S. and Canada. Last month, it averaged 9,000 U.S.-bound cars a day, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Drivers were being diverted to other crossings, including the nearby Pacific Highway crossing, where border officers from Peace Arch were reassigned to help deal with the extra travellers, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Mike Milne. Investigators have been interviewing witnesses and reviewing video. Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer said Wednesday his office also followed up on leads and checked out a former address for the suspect in Bremerton. The gunman’s identity has not been released. Bowcock worked as a civilian dispatcher at police headquarters in London, Ontario, until last spring, police said. Bowcock was hospitalized in Canada, and her family travelled to be by her side, the Canadian Border Services Agency said Wednesday.

Official says shot Pakistani girl’s condition improving Associated Press

LONDON — A 14-year-old girl shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting female education has been doing better since she was airlifted to England for specialized treatment and has been moving her limbs, a Pakistani official said Wednesday. Although it’s difficult to gauge what such an improvement might mean given that the exact nature of Malala Yousufzai’s brain injuries have yet to be made public, one expert said the news was good. “Any progress is hopeful,’’ Dr. Jonathan Fellus, chief scientific officer at the New Jersey-based International Brain Research Founda-

Malala Yousufzai tion, said. “This is the natural course of recovery that we would expect.’’ The Pakistani official, who spoke anonymously because he wasn’t cleared to talk on the

record about the case, said he had been briefed by doctors and that Malala’s condition was “definitely much better’’ since she arrived in England on Monday. He added that the girl was

moving her limbs, although he didn’t elaborate. Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, where Malala is being treated, released a statement Wednesday saying Malala was in “stable condition and continued to impress doctors by responding well to her care,’’ but didn’t go into detail. The hospital’s acting head of communications, Carole Cole, said there would be no further news on the case until Thursday. Malala’s family, which the hospital said was still in Pakistan, could not be reached for comment. Malala was returning home from school in Pakistan last week when she was targeted by the

Taliban for promoting female education and criticizing the militant group’s behaviour when they took over the Swat Valley, where she lived. The attack, in which two of her classmates were also wounded, has horrified many in Pakistan and across the world. The Taliban have threatened to target Malala again, because she promotes “Western thinking.’’ Fellus said in a phone interview that physical abilities were often the first to return in cases of traumatic brain injury, and that didn’t mean that the teen would necessarily make a full recovery. Still, he said, “the earlier you start to see recovery, the better.’’

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might not realize how much you trigger certain people in your life, especially as of late. You see beyond the obvious and act accordingly. Others could be shocked as a result. An explanation definitely would help. Make calls and network; know what you expect and want. Tonight: Go for the untried. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Work with a partner directly, and you really might appreciate the experience and its benefits. Pressure builds when a partner or associate pushes you too hard for your own good. You might be willing to spend money on a specific item. Tonight: A little fall shopping wouldn’t hurt. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your optimism remains, no matter what obstacles you face. In fact, a meaningful exchange occurs between you and someone else only because of your upbeat attitude. Sometimes you find a key person to be a little too aggressive or as-

sertive. Tonight: Go with a friend’s or loved one’s decision. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Pace yourself, as you have a lot to accomplish. Know that your mind will be working overtime, and you’ll have difficulty concentrating. You might make a decision about a job or situation that puts many demands on you. Follow through on what you need to do. Tonight: Get some exercise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You cannot go wrong if you are spontaneous. News or an idea surprises you by triggering all types of reactions -- some angry, some unpredictable. You’ll land on your feet no matter what. Your friends support you in your goals. Whether they agree with them or not will be irrelevant. Tonight: Paint the town red. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are enthusiastic about a personal matter. If you are not dealing with that issue, you could have difficulty focusing on anything else. If you do manage to focus your attention elsewhere, then that issue and the people involved could resurface and tap you on the

For Better or Worse

shoulder. Tonight: Work on your juggling skills. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Make calls early, as you likely will be swamped by others seeking you out, whether it is via email, phone or simply arriving at your door. You could become frustrated and, as a result, lose your temper. News comes in from someone at a distance or from someone you do not speak to often. Tonight: Read between the lines. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be careful with spending. You could be letting go of negative feelings through shopping. Stop and deal with your frustrations head-on. You might want to get to the root of the issue and find out why you are so easily triggered. Cool off, then approach the problem. Tonight: Have fun with a friend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Funnel your energy into whatever you want, and your creativity will surge as a result. You might try out some of your wild ideas on someone. If you proceed as usual, you might become quite frustrated. Use your current unusual energy

well. Tonight: Sort through offers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to step back from a project for a while, especially if you have a conflict with someone involved. Stay calm when dealing with an unpredictable individual. This person might mean what he or she says now, but not later. Get as much done as you can on your own. Tonight: Work out or take a walk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might be more removed than you realize, as your mind wanders from one thought to another. Your creativity continues to be high. Share more of your ingenuity in a meeting. Others initially might be startled, but eventually they’ll go along with some of your ideas. Tonight: Start the weekend early. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Pressure comes from what you think you need to accomplish as opposed to what others want you to do. At a certain point, you need to honor your priorities, or else you will not be happy. A family member or domestic matter occupies your attention. Tonight: Clear out as much as you can.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Due to many complicated family issues, I’ve been estranged from my adult daughter for the past 10 years. However, she has a college-aged daughter with whom I’ve managed to maintain a decent and, I thought, loving relationship. Last month, I was on “Chelsea’s” Facebook page. I’ve been proud of her success in college, her happiness with friends and the experience of living away from her mother. However, her friends posted a couple of remarks on her Facebook page that bothered me. I emailed her that these issues may not be any of my business, but I was concerned for her personal safety, etc. She quickly replied that this was indeed none of my business, and she made excuses for the Facebook comments. I expressed how disappointed I was with her attitude since I was only worried about her. We haven’t spoken since then, and frankly, I cannot excuse her bad behavior toward me. But Chelsea doesn’t have a great many family members, and I would like to mend this rift. My own friends have pointed out that “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Any suggestions? -- Concerned Grandpa Dear Grandpa: Chelsea is young and living independently for the first time. She doesn’t want her grandfather (or anyone else) to tell her how to live her life. You were undoubtedly right to be concerned about her safety, but it came across as criticism, and she was not receptive. If you want to fix this, you will have to make the first move. Send her an email or post something on her Facebook page that is positive and complimentary. Say nothing about the previous disagreement, and hope she is equally willing to let it go. Then start fresh. We hope someday Chelsea will be mature enough to appreciate your advice. But right now, please tread lightly. Dear Annie: I’ve read letters from women who complain because their men are spending time and money secretly watching porn. I suspect most men are like me. I am 64 years old. I was married for 24 years. Except for our sex life, I was truly happy right up until the day she said she had a boyfriend and wanted a divorce. I always wanted more physical contact than she did, but she viewed that as “my” problem. When she said “no,” she meant it, and she said it often. Meanwhile, she decided I was “oversexed.” I found that porn allowed me, at least in fantasy, to get some of the release I needed. We divorced 11 years ago. I am now the luckiest man on Earth because I found a genuine partner. Not only is this 60-year-old woman mature, successful, loving, liberated and modern, but she still enjoys sex. We kiss and hug. We enjoy touching that doesn’t always lead to sex, and when we do have sex, we want to please each other. I haven’t thought about watching porn since we met. Women should ask themselves whether they are contributing to the behavior they abhor, and what they could bring to the relationship to make it better. -- Problem Solved Dear Solved: In most troubled relationships, both parties contribute to the problem to varying degrees. The important thing is for each person to address their own weak spots and then work to make the relationship better. Dear Annie: This is in response to “S.,” who is uncomfortable telling the doctor’s receptionist what the medical problem is. My husband had severe chest pains and called to make an appointment. He thought it was indigestion. When he explained the problem to the receptionist, she told him to hold on while she notified the doctor, who told him to get to the emergency room immediately. As it turned out, he’d had a heart attack and needed a quadruple bypass. Had she just scheduled an appointment, things could have turned out much worse. -- Grateful Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Prison birth “tip of the iceberg,” say protesting mothers C anadian Press

OTTAWA _ A group of mothers is demanding a full inquiry into what they say is the systemic inhumane treatment of women in the prison system. They say the case of Julie Bilotta, who gave birth last month in an Ottawa jail cell, is just one example of the harsh conditions women endure behind bars. The group, calling itself the Mother and Baby Coalition for Justice, demonstrated in Ottawa on Wednesday outside the offices of Ontario Correctional Services Minister Madeleine Meilleur. Dawn Moore, an associate professor of criminology at Carleton University who helped organize the demonstration, said Bilotta’s case was not an isolated incident.

Bilotta, a 26-year-old from Cornwall, Ont., gave birth prematurely to a boy on the floor of a segregation cell at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre on Sept. 29. The woman’s mother says Bilotta’s screams for help as she went into labour were ignored for hours. “I need only speak the name of Ashley Smith to remind you that Julie Bilotta was not the first woman to be incarcerated in Canada to have her cries for help ignored and to have guards stand by and watch as her life was put in danger,’’ said Moore. “And in Ashley’s case (her life was) ultimately lost.’’ Smith was a teenager when she committed suicide on Oct. 19, 2007, while under suicide watch at On-

MySpace

While she was an inmate at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre, Julie Bilotta gave birth to her first child. tario’s Grand Valley Institution for Women. She was able to strangle

herself despite guards watching her on video monitors. Women who attended the Wednesday protest said they were shocked by the details of the Bilotta case and wondered how such a thing could happen in Canada. “We have a system in place, things are supposed to work, said protester Jackie Hansen. “Clearly things didn’t work the way they should and it’s just horrific what this woman had to go through.’’ Chanting “mothers and babies belong together,’’ the woman called on Meilleur to do anything in her power to ensure Bilotta is released from prison so she can care for her child. The minister has maintained

that her hands are tied and she cannot interfere in the court process. She disputed the notion that there is a systemic failure to provide adequate care to inmates, although she has also said that pregnant inmates should expect to receive the same level of care as women in the general population. The corrections service has started an internal investigation into the Bilotta case. Bilotta has not been convicted, but is being held for allegedly breaking the conditions of her bail in connection with several fraud and drug charges. Her lawyer expects it could be weeks before she can make another bail request on compassionate grounds.

Charges MacKay to give official send off to laid after Canada’s first military satellite hotel standoff C anadian Press

C ANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER _ A Surrey, B.C. man who walked into a downtown Vancouver hotel with a gun and stayed put for 10 hours has been charged. Vancouver Police say four weapons charges have been laid against 27-year-old Ranjit Sandhu, including unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. The armed standoff began about 2:30 a.m. Monday when the man entered the Pacific Rim hotel on the city’s waterfront and then sat down and waited. He was taken into custody with minor injuries and in distraught condition just after noon by the Vancouver Police Emergency Response Team. Many hotel guests were told to stay in their rooms, while traffic was diverted around the hotel during the incident that occurred during morning rush hour. Sandhu remains in custody until he is scheduled to appear in Vancouver provincial court on Oct. 19.

OTTAWA, Ont. _ Defence Minister Peter MacKay will give Sapphire, Canada’s first military satellite, the official send-off Thursday at the David Florida Laboratory, where it underwent final tests before a planned launch in December. MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates, the prime contractor, was awarded the $65-million contract five years ago. National Defence describes Sapphire as the largest part of the Canadian surveillance system, intended to increase “space situational awareness.’’ Sapphire will be used to support Canadian and international operations, as well as bilateral commitments such as NORAD. The metre-long satellite, weighing about 150 kilograms, will track man-made objects and space debris that could pose threats to other satellites. With a life expectancy of at least five years, Sapphire

Defence Minister Peter MacKay will be placed in a polar synchronous orbit some 800 kilometres above Earth. The satellite will detect more objects with better accuracy than specialized radars or telescopes on the ground. Sapphire is scheduled for launch on an Indian rocket. It was supposed to be launched earlier this year with NEOSSat, another Canadian satellite. But the launch was pushed back be-

cause work on an IndoFrench satellite, the rocket’s primary payload, was delayed. Com Dev International of Cambridge, Ont., and two other companies, Terma A/S of Herlev, Denmark, and Surrey Satellite Technology of Surrey, England, were also on MacDonald, Dettwiler’s contracting team. Microsat Systems Canada Inc. won the $12-million

1 in 7 couples seek help to conceive C anadian Press

TORONTO _ A new report suggests that about one in seven Canadian couples trying to have a child seeks medical help to conceive. The Statistics Canada report is based on the 2009-2010 Canadian Community Health Survey, which found about 380,000 couples turned to doctors when the woman was unable to get pregnant.

Data show couples in which the woman was aged 35 to 44 were two to three times more likely to seek help than were couples in which the woman was 25 to 29. The survey also shows childless couples were four to five times more likely to seek medical assistance than were those with at least one child. Among couples seeking

help, about two in five reported using fertility-enhancing drugs and one in five said they used assisted reproductive techniques, such as in-vitro fertilization. It is unknown whether the use of assisted reproductive techniques is increasing, as the 2009-2010 survey was the first national population-based questionnaire to look at its prevalence.

However, the Canadian Assisted Reproduction Technologies Register shows the number of annual procedures performed has risen steadily over the last decade. The report’s authors suggest this upward trend could continue, particularly if more provinces start providing coverage for the cost of treatments, as is the case in Quebec.

contract to build NEOSSat, short for Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite. The Canadian Space Agency says NEOSSat is the world’s first spacebased telescope dedicated to detecting and tracking asteroids and satellites. It will scan space near the sun to pinpoint asteroids that may someday pass near our planet. Sapphire will also contribute to the United States Space Surveillance Network, which currently tracks more

than 22,000 pieces of space debris larger than 10 centimetres. There are another estimated 100,000 pieces of debris between one and 10 centimetres in size. Even the smallest objects have the potential to seriously damage or destroy a satellite, which could potentially lead to the loss of millions of dollars. The U.S. space surveillance network keeps a catalogue of space objects that is used by 20,000 users in more than 130 countries.

As he said, “the race is over.” Rick died with great courage and in peace, surrounded by the women he loved the most. He is survived by his partner Sharon and her son Jesse, daughter Teresa (Scott), son Matt and their mother Marie, granddaughter Justice, sister Verna, brother Bert (Lorraine), and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his mother Vera, father Gilbert and brother David. Rick was born in Grande Prairie, and his childhood was spent between his family’s farm in Fort St. John and their orchard in California. His ability to repair anything was obvious at a very young age and became legendary over the years. He had a unique brilliance and an amazing natural talent when it came to anything that was broken, no matter what it was—he just fixed it or invented a better way to get the job done. He could also drive or operate anything with tires, but race cars were his true passion. His professional racing career took him all over Canada and the U.S., Australia and Argentina. His war stories from tracks like Talladega, Pocono and Daytona, and his experiences with other drivers like Martin, Earnhardt, and Petty were always entertaining. He finished in the top 10 for the year overall in NASCAR’s Winston West Series in 1991. His Kimberly crew is remembering him with much love and laughter, they travelled many, many miles with him and the memories are certainly cherished. When he moved from Kimberley to Sorrento in 1998 to care for his parents, he was retired from the professional circuit but still raced at Sun Valley with his Hot Rod Lincoln, and put in countless hours as crew chief for the Lordco team. He continued to work as a mechanic, and his shop up on the hill was rarely quiet; there was always something interesting going on and a regular group of guys working and hanging out. He was more than generous with his time, his knowledge and his tools (was there one he didn’t have?) and if someone needed help with something, they got it. Perhaps more than anything that went on up there, he loved to “take five” with whoever was around; always a coffee or Pepsi, gossip, jokes, arguing (especially with Gino) and of course free lessons from “Rick’s Finishing School for Women”. In addition he also started and ran a successful business with Sharon, Shuswap New & Used Building Materials, where he continued to prove over and over that what seemed impossible at first was in fact “not a big deal”. Rick lived his life the way he drove; very fast, by his own rules, with amazing skill, with highly contagious passion and with great enthusiasm and determination. Sometimes he won, sometimes he didn’t but it didn’t matter, he genuinely lived by the adage that “it’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey.” It didn’t matter much where he was going…what really mattered was the thrill of the chase and how much fun he was having on the way. His sense of humour spared nobody…his energy and attitude affected everybody. He was, truly, an original. Losing him has left such a painful raw hole in the lives of those who knew and loved him. He will be very deeply missed. If there is a heaven, and they didn’t have a smoking section yet, they will now. They will play the Doobie Brothers and Stevie Nicks and The Eagles really loud, #33 will be a Ford and he will still be“taking ‘em on the outside” (Thanks Jay). The amusement park will always be open, with rides and roller coasters only he could imagine. He’ll be arguing with Gary again, and the Snap-On truck will come every day. Those blue eyes will always be lit right up with another crazy new idea…and he’ll be watching over us with a wrench in one hand and a coffee in the other, reminding us that “it is what it is.” As always, “Take It To The Limit,” honey, “One More Time…” At his request there will be no service, we are to celebrate his

July 25, 1993 – October 14, 2012

Jacey Judith Uphill, born July 25, 1993, was granted her angel wings on October 14, 2012, after a long courageous battle with cancer. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The lives that were touched by Jacey’s grace and optimism are vast. Jacey’s life would seem too short to many, but those who have been touched by her understand that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her glowing smile, her compassion, her strength, her undying faith and her ability to make every individual who had the honor of being in her presence feel loved and important - these are the qualities that drew people to her. Although she was ill, she gave us courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life - she taught us to believe and have faith, even in the darkest moments. Jacey was a competitive Irish dancer and competed all over North America. With what little free time she had, Jacey played field hockey and even wrestled – all the while being a fashionista. She was a dedicated student at St. Mary’s High School and received scholarships and awards for post-secondary education. Jacey was accepted into nursing at U of C, but didn’t want to stop there, her goal was to become a surgeon - following the example of the incredible nurses and doctors who cared for her throughout her journey. Jacey is survived by her fiancé Luke Borbely; her mother and step-father, Shonalie and Darcy Stadnyk; her father Dale Uphill and Leigh (Block). She leaves behind four siblings, Joey and Rozanna Stadnyk and Jalyn and Talon Uphill; step-siblings Brett and Ally Block; her maternal grandparents Judy and Carmen Biafore; paternal grandparents Marvin and Annette Uphill; and two greatgrandmothers Helen Biafore and Iris Ruzek. She leaves numerous aunts, uncles and cousins and many friends whom she considered family. A service to honour Jacey will be held at First Alliance Church (12345 - 40th Street SE, Calgary) on Friday, October 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm. Photos, memories and condolences may be forwarded to Jacey’s family through www.evanjstrong.com. Jacey was an advocate for Childhood Cancer Awareness, an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and a spokeswoman for Canadian Blood Services. If you would like to pay tribute to this inspirational young lady, in lieu of flowers please donate to these causes. Arrangements in care of Evan J. Strong Funeral Services
