“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” “Diamonds are forever.” “Diamonds in the rough.” Whatever you say about these precious gems, you can’t deny they are desirable! Tidbits has all the dirt on diamonds this week – read along and see! • The word “diamond” has its origins in the Greek language from the word Adamas, which translates “unconquerable and indestructible.” The Greeks believed them to be splinters of stars that had fallen to Earth and believed diamonds promoted strength, invincibility, and courage to those who wore them.

• Ranked as the hardest natural substance on Earth, diamonds are composed entirely of carbon, the only gemstones composed of just one element. They are formed at high temperatures under intense pressure 87 to 120 miles (140 to 190 km) within the Earth’s mantle over billions of years. A volcanic eruption can often bring diamonds to the Earth’s surface. Although there are synthetic “diamonds,” there is no man-made way to reproduce the tremendous heat and pressure found deep within the Earth that creates diamonds. Millionaire publisher Malcolm Forbes had this to say about diamonds – “Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Whatever you can visualize, you can accomplish. You may relish every opportunity to employ creative energy in the week ahead. You have both the enthusiasm and the imagination to make dreams a reality. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Let your fingers do the walking. Don’t be too proud to ask for help in the upcoming week. A problem can be solved, but your attitude toward the problem can prevent you from finding a solution. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Vibrate with vision. You can think ahead and use your imagination to dissolve limits. In the upcoming week, use your stockpile of both knowledge and intuition to make wise choices about the future. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Expect to be more popular than usual this week. Those big, sweeping gestures will endear you to your friends, but you don’t need to spend every penny in your piggy bank to impress real friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sympathy is the instrument to create a symphony in perfect harmony. Exude understanding and compassion during the week to come and watch people change their tune. It is prime time to start key projects. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Crack the code. Your mind can grasp the most subtle details of a business deal. In the week to come, you can use your brains and your brawn to get key projects accomplished. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get out your crayons, coloring book, scissors and paste. You will receive a chance to be more creative than usual. You possess enough energy to pursue both hobbies and career objectives this week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are getting better all the time, in every way. This week might be a good time to begin a health program or to get in touch with your spiritual side. A little self-discipline will go a long way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): People may be grateful for unsolicited advice, but some prefer to think on their own and draw their own conclusions. During the week ahead, be sensitive to areas where you may create dependencies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take a peek at an emerging situation through someone else’s eyes. Your home base might be a beehive of activity in the week ahead and you might need to shed some preconceived notions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Running away from your problems is a race you will never win. Your piggy bank might only contain pennies now, but dollars will add up quickly. Changes to your finances might be permanent. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you focus on ways to get inspired you won’t get tired. Even the most mundane jobs will have something that can raise your spirits. Exercise your compassion, not your wallet, in the week to come.

Humane Society Has a Bone to Pick With Negotiations

Moose Jaw Glass

Pound keeping negotiations stall between Moose Jaw Humane Society and the City of Moose Jaw

«Locally Owned & Operated»

909-High Street West Bay #4 306.972.6909

The Moose Jaw Humane Society has been in contract negotiations with the City of Moose Jaw relating to its pound keeping services since December 2011. Under a contract signed in 2007, the humane society has been carrying out these services for approximately $125,000 annually. At the shelter’s AGM on April 16th, board president John LaBuick and financial chair Dave Field made a presentation to the shelter’s membership illustrating the poor condition of the humane society’s facility and laying out the costs incurred by the MJHS over the course of the years following the signing of that contract. The actual expenses for the shelter to provide these services is in excess of $380,000, however, only twenty percent of the shelter’s overall income is derived from the city to cover these costs. In addition, there is no allowance in the current agreement for replacement due to wear and tear on shelter equipment, vehicles, and its building, not to mention costs related to general overhead expenses. (see attached pie chart, page 5) The humane society projects a further financial shortfall of over $85,000 for the current year. As a not-for-profit organization, this will mean even more belt-tightening in the months to come. In an effort to offset these expenses, the MJHS has requested what it deems to be a fair increase in fees from the city for pound keeping to the effect of $384,000 per year; the shelter is not looking for a means to finance the “humane society” portion of the organization, but rather simply to cover the costs associated with the impound of the stray animals of the city. More recently, these contract negotiations have stalled – chiefly because to date, the shelter has received no counter offers from the city. Each year, the Moose Jaw Humane Society sees an average intake of 1,500 dogs and cats, with the vast majority being strays, often going unclaimed. Under the City of Moose Jaw bylaws, the shelter must hold all stray dogs and cats for 72 hours in impound. The MJHS as a shelter finds that to be unacceptable and chooses instead to adopt the animal into a new home. If they remain unclaimed after that period of time elapses, the city by law states that the animal is to be euthanized. Over the course of the animal’s stay at the shelter, the MJHS adheres to the policies and procedures of the Humane Society and Animal Protection Act of 1999. The shelter’s board and staff believe very strongly that the MJHS is the best solution for handling the pound keeping for the City of Moose Jaw. The shelter is the only party that has a designated facility, properly trained, qualified personnel, an understanding of the required care, and a strong background in animal welfare. He reiterated that the membership can help the cause by calling the city councilors and mayor to express their dissatisfaction with the contract negotiations, and become advocates for the shelter’s needs.

Samson- 2 yr. old male Neapolitan Mastiff cross Hi there! Samson is the name fun is my game. I love people and playtime, especially a rousing game of fetch. I am very smart and have mastered the “stay” and “leave it” commands. Due to a lack of socialization I would be best placed in a home where I am the only pet and with children over 12.

Rocky - 11 month old Shar Pei Pitbull Cross Are you looking for a young friend to keep you company and keep you fit? I have mastered my basic manners and walk well on leash. I probably run well too, but we will have to wait until all this snow melts to find out! I have lived with children and love to spend time with them. I do have a severe “allergy” to cats though.

Z y p p – young adult American Eskimo cross Having just arrived at the shelter I am still a little scared and unsure of my new surroundings but am coming around a bit every day. I am sure someone out there is going to be willing to take the time to become my best friend. Come on down to the shelter and take me out for a walk and find out what a wonderful boy I am.

Mama Deeadult spayed female I had 3 gorgeous little babies with me when I arrived at the shelter and I am ever so pleased that they have found their forever homes. Now that my babies are safe and happy, I would like to take a moment to be selfish and ask a favour for myself. Wouldn’t someone have room in their home for a sweet, pretty little girl like me? I will be here waiting for you.

Titanadult neutered male. My adoption fees have been sponsored by a generous donor. Thank you! Are you looking for a big strong man to share your life with? Well I think I might be the guy for you! I am not one of those shallow, conceited kinda guys though. I came in as a stray with some war wounds and missing most of my tail. Life on the streets was too much for me and I am ready to have a nice cushy home. I will greet you at the end of your day and listen to your every word. Give me a call we’ll make a date!

Max- 8 yr. old neutered male My adoption fees have been sponsored by a generous donor. Thank you! I am a very handsome, well groomed gentleman. My markings are reminiscent of a Rorschach ink blob. What do you see? Even though I am no longer a kitten, I have lots of time left to give my love to my favorite people. I know kittens are really cute, but they can be a little mischievous too. My mischievous days are behind me, all I am looking for is a lap to snuggle up on.

POKER POKER

at

By Corwin Tony Dunst By Cole

Make a read and stick with it. Far too often, I see people go through each stage of a hand with the notion that they will wait to see what their opponent does next and then re-evaluate. This is a fancy cover-up for two silly mistakes: being indecisive and getting attached to a hand. Anybody who has played a lot of poker is familiar with this faulty pattern. I recently observed a perfect example of it in a live $5/10 no-limit hold ’em game. Sitting in the four seat, a serious and competitive player had raised before the flop to $60, getting two callers who had initially just limped in. Holding pocket kings, he was already anticipating raking in a big pot. The flop brought J♥ 8♣ 7♦, and both of his opponents Player’s checked. Still happy with his hand, he bet $150, a typical hand: amount with $195 already in the pot. One player folded, and the other raised to $400. As the player in the four seat began to analyze the situation, I had a good idea of what he was thinking. He was losing confidence in his hand. Many likely hands could beat his, and he never expected to be check-raised in the first place. He was hoping that somebody would call him the Opponent’s whole way and have a lower pair than his kings. This is hand: when he became indecisive, feeling like he couldn’t fold yet. I’m sure he considered that it would only cost $250 more to call, and that there was already $745 in the pot, giving him nearly 3:1 pot odds. Besides, he was in position, so he could see what happened on the next card. At the same time, he was already attached to his two kings. He had not picked up any strong hands all Flop: night. It was frustrating. So, he began to rationalize his desire to continue. He no doubt thought about the possibility that if he folded a strong pair like this one, everyone at the table would start to bluff him relentlessly. Not to mention that he would appear scared of even a small amount of money, the paltry $250 being Turn: insignificant at these stakes. Of course, he concluded that he could not fold. But he came to that decision not by sound reasoning, but rather by the attachment to his pair of kings that cursed him from the beginning. Watching him, I could see that he never really made a read on his opponent. He got bogged down in coming up with excuses for not folding. When he finally decided to call and see what happened on the turn, which brought the 2♣, his opponent went all in for a little over $1,000. After agonizing for a couple minutes, the player in the four seat said, “I just can’t fold this hand,” and called, losing to a set of sevens. Always make a read even if it is hard to stomach, and make the right play even when it is difficult. Never let your emotions get the better of you. Success in poker comes mostly from patience and discipline.

• Although less than 1% of diamonds are mined in the U.S., America buys more than half of the world’s total production of quality gems.

• A diamond’s value is based on the “Four C’s” – carat weight, clarity, color, and cut. A diamond’s carat is not the same as that of gold. Pure gold is considered 24 carats, while one diamond carat is 0.007055 oz. (200 mg). Not all diamonds are clear. The presence of impurities causes the gems to vary in color, as can heat or irradiation. Nitrogen in a stone produces a yellow color, while irradiation might produce green. Blue, red, brown, pink, orange, and even black might result from the presence of both irradiation and heat. Clear diamonds are the highest grade and value. • Diamonds lose about 50% of their original weight during the cutting and polishing process, changing a rough stone into a faceted gem. One diamond weighing two carats is worth double that of two one-carat diamonds. About 75% of all diamonds sold worldwide are round cut. Other popular cuts include the football-shaped marquise, the pear cut (which are rounded on one end with a tapering point on the other), and the emerald cut, a rectangular shape with cropped corners.

• Although blue, green, and pink diamonds are extremely rare, they are not the rarest gems. That honor belongs to the pure red ruby. Diamonds themselves aren’t actually rare at all, with thousands mined every year. • The world’s largest diamond was found in South Africa in 1905. Dubbed the Cullinan, it weighed 3106.75 carats uncut, three times the size of the next largest diamond, the Excelsior, also found in South Africa. The Cullinan was cut into the 530-carat Great Star of Africa and the 317-carat Lesser Star of Africa, along with

104 other diamonds of flawless color and clarity. Today they are all part of the British crown jewels.

Expecting For weeks a six-year old lad kept telling his firstgrade teacher about the baby brother or sister that was expected at his house. One day the mother allowed the boy to feel the movements of the unborn child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made no comment. Furthermore, he stopped telling his teacher about the impending event. The teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, “Tommy, whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?” Tommy burst into tears and confessed, “I think Mommy ate it!”

• The legendary Hope Diamond is a 45.52-carat deep blue stone famous for a supposed curse upon its owners. Its blue color is attributed to trace amounts of boron and nitrogen within its composition. When exposed to ultraviolet light, it produces a red phosphorescence, a “glow-in-the-dark” effect. The curse alleges that the gem brings tragedy to all who own it or wear it, but it’s likely that the stories were fabricated to heighten the diamond’s mystery and consequently, its value. However, legend has it that two owners committed suicide, another was killed by Russian revolutionists, one murdered by her sweetheart, and another thrown from a precipice. At one point, the gem was in the possession of Marie Antoinette and her husband King Louis XVI, who were guillotined. It’s believed that the Hope Diamond came from a mine in India, and was brought to Paris by a French gem merchant. It currently resides in the Smithsonian Institute, donated by diamond merchant Harry Winston in 1958. The irreplaceable gem is reportedly insured for $250 million. It’s displayed behind a 3-inch-thick (76 mm) bulletproof glass in its own display room.

• It’s become traditional to present one’s intended with a diamond when proposing marriage. This dates back to 1477 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria gifted Mary of Burgundy with a diamond upon their engagement. It’s also customary to wear engagement and wedding rings on the third finger of the left hand. This is because the ancient Egyptians believed that particular finger’s vein ran straight to the heart.

Safety Bits Wheel Safety—Teach Your Child to Use Wheels Safely As spring approaches, warm weather activities start to occur like riding our bikes, roller blading, skateboarding, etc. It is always good to be reminded of the rules of the road and proper preparation before venturing out on the city streets. ▶ “Wheels” refer to bikes, skateboards, scooters and blades ▶ Beginners should learn on level ground. Use open areas that are dry and smooth. Even gentle slopes can be dangerous because their speed can get quickly out of control. ▶ Always watch your children while they use “wheels”. ▶ Teach children to be aware of others on a sidewalk, bike trail or in a park. Teach them to skate or ride on the right, pass on the left, and warn others before passing. ▶ Always have your child use the appropriate safety gear when participating in a “wheel” activity. ▶ It is dangerous to use skateboards, scooters or blades in the street. Use roller rinks, parks and playgrounds whenever possible. Teach your children to watch for cars and other traffic when crossing the street.

Helmets

1.Choose a helmet that has a sticker on the inside indicating it meets one of the following standards: CSA, ASTM, CPSC, Snell, ANSI. 2.The helmet should fit firmly on the head (it does not move around if the head is shaken). 3.The helmet should be level on the head: two fingers above the eyebrow. 4.The straps should fit around the ears in a ‘Y’ shape and fit snugly enough that you can only fit one finger between the strap and the chin.

Rules of the Road

Bikes ▶ Always wear an approved bicycle helmet. ▶ Obey all traffic laws, signs, and lights. ▶ Ride on the right hand side with traffic. Never ride on the wrong side of the road against traffic. ▶ At busy intersections, do not try to make left turns. Stop and walk your bike across in the pedestrian crosswalks until you are on the street you wish to travel. ▶ Use shoulder checks and hand signals to let others know what you plan to do. ▶ Ride one meter from parked cars. Watch for car doors opening. ▶ Yield to all walkers and joggers. Have a bell on your bike to alert them that you are there. ▶ Never carry a passenger on your bike. ▶ Wear bright colored clothing and use reflective tape if you ride at night. If you are riding after dark, your bike must have a working headlight and a red rear blinking light. ▶ Stop, look, and listen when you enter any street. ▶ Watch for cars backing out of driveways and cars turning in front of you. ▶ Keep your bike in good mechanical condition.

DVD Reviews

“DJANGO UNCHAINED’’: No stranger to generating controversy with his work, Quentin Tarantino did it again - and earned an Oscar for his script, with another going to Christoph Waltz, who also had won best supporting actor for Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds’’ - for his revisionist, often violent adventure set in the preCivil War era. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a freed slave whose quest to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington, “Scandal’’) from a sinister plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio) prompts him to team with a dentist-turned-bounty hunter (Waltz). Samuel L. Jackson and Walton Goggins (“Justified’’) also star. ***

“A MONSTER IN PARIS’’: With a highly descriptive name, this animated fantasy offers marvelous visuals - especially with its backdrop of the City of Light in the early 1900s - and a fun plot. A clumsy trio wreaks havoc in a laboratory, resulting in the title creation. The monster isn’t necessarily fearsome, as demonstrated by his knack for music, but an ambitious police chief still targets him. Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennon provide speaking and singing vocals, with Catherine O’Hara, Bob Balaban, Adam Goldberg and Danny Huston also in the voice cast. *** “THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA’’: Lest there be confusion from the title, Georgia is the state where this very familiar sequel to the earlier horror film unfolds. Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill’’) and Abigail Spencer (“Oz the Great and Powerful’’) play a couple who relocate with their young daughter (Emily Alyn Lind), only to find their new residence plagued by spooky and ultimately threatening doings. Katee Sackoff (“Longmire,’’ “Battlestar Galactica’’) and veteran actress Cicely Tyson also star. DVD extras: theatrical trailers; “makingof ’’ documentary; audio commentary by director Tom Elkins, writer David Coggeshall and co-producer Brad Kessell; deleted scenes; outtakes. ** “WINGS OF LIFE’’: Part of the Disney nature documentary series (“Chimpanzee,’’ “Oceans,’’ etc.), this examination of the daily world around us focuses on its relationship to such creatures as bees and butterflies, which pollinate nature. Meryl Streep narrates the film, as various forms of cinematography are used to illustrate a series of environmental cases of cause and effect. *** “NOVA: BUILDING PHARAOH’S CHARIOT’’: Given that title, and the fact that this is an episode of the PBS science series, it should come as little surprise that the reconstructing of the vehicles used by ancient leaders and warriors - see “Ben-Hur’’ - is the essence of the program. What’s especially fascinating is the number of supposedly modern features

the original chariots incorporated, including anti-roll bars and shock absorbers. Archaeologists and engineers are among those who work on the project. ***

“IRON MAN: RISE OF TECHNOVORE’’: With Robert Downey Jr.’s third movie (or fourth, if you count “Marvel’s the Avengers’’) about the superhero nearing release, this animated adventure also puts Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) through fresh paces. Maligned as the supposed reason a terrorist attack succeeded, he goes rogue - with some help from the Punisher (voice of Norman Reedus, “The Walking Dead’’) - to stop a villain who’s created a biotech weapon. Matthew Mercer supplies the voice of Iron Man. DVD extras: two “making-of’’ documentaries. ***

Remove 99.97% of ALL

Blades, Scooters, and Skateboards ▶ Always wear an approved helmet and appropriate safety gear. ▶ Never ride in the street. Use playgrounds and paths. ▶ Yield to all walkers and joggers. Pass them on the left and give them a warning to let them know that you are there. ▶ Practice stopping and controlling your speed.

Making Great Cooking Easier Than You Ever Imagined

With spring just a few weeks old, we’ve now entered the time of year when we begin to think about summer. But I don’t mean summertime cooking. You won’t believe how many people start asking me in April to cook them “something light, because I want to get ready for my swimsuit.” It’s like a second wave of New Year’s resolutions, more than three months after the first. I have some simple suggestions ready whenever weight-conscious people ask me what they should eat in my restaurants, or cook at home. Most importantly, I tell them not to think about the “d” word, dieting. You’ll be more successful if you make healthy eating your goal. Feeling better and looking better naturally follow. Eating more seafood is another good idea. Most of it is amazingly low in fat. And even many higher-fat fish,

such as salmon, trout, tuna, and whitefish, are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids that have been found to benefit cardiovascular health. The next piece of advice I give is to incorporate as much fresh produce into your meals as possible. Vegetables and fruits are low in calories and fat and as bursting with nutrients as they are with great flavor. On a more practical level, they provide a lot of fiber, which helps to fill you up while also slowing down the time it takes you to eat. That results in you leaving the table feeling more satisfied from less food. One final piece of advice - eat food that tastes exciting - yields a similar result. When you enjoy something that’s full of big, bold flavors, you often find yourself slowing down to savor every bite. You can probably imagine what the result will be when you put lean seafood together with lots of vegetables and lively flavors. So, when there isn’t enough time to offer all of the explanations I’ve just given, I simply suggest that my swimsuit-conscious friends order a great seafood salad. And that’s what I’m happy to share with you here today: a recipe for my Shrimp Salad with Spicy Jalapeno Sauce, a classic from the menu of my Asian-fusion restaurant Chinois on Main in Santa Monica, Calif. It’s quick and easy to make, taking no more than about 20 minutes. You’ll find all the ingredients you need in any well-stocked supermarket. You can also adapt it to change your tastes and what’s available in the market, substituting sea scallops or salmon fillets

for the shrimp; using heirloom tomatoes in season for the sauce; and adding other leaves or vegetables to the salad mixture. You’ll be amazed by how beautiful the salad looks - and how great you’ll look in your swimsuit when summer rolls around. Find the recipe on page 15

A Friendly Sale I took four tires to a friend’s garage sale and was asking $30 apiece. I needed to leave for a few minutes, so I asked him to watch them for me. “Sure,” he said, “but if someone offers less, how low are you willing to go?” “Try for more, but I will accept $15,” I said, and left. When I returned, my tires were gone. “How much did you get for them?” I asked excitedly. “Fifteen dollars each.” “Who bought them?” “I did!”

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

First, prepare the sauce: In a blender or a food processor fitted with the stainless-steel blade, combine the tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, and tomato paste. Pulse until finely chopped, and then continue processing until smoothly pureed. Transfer the puree to a medium mixing bowl. Very finely chopped the cilantro leaves. Stir them into the sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside. Lightly season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peanut oil and, as soon as it is hot enough to swirl freely, add the shrimp, working in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding. Cook them until they turn opaque and bright pink, about 1-1/2 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and keep warm. To assemble the salads, arrange a radicchio leaf on one side of each large serving plate. Put the salad leaves in a mixing bowl, add the Chinois Vinaigrette, and toss thoroughly. Mound the leaves on top of the radicchio and garnish with the endive leaves. Spoon the sauce over the other side of each plate and arrange the cooked shrimp on top. Garnish with the julienne of peppers and the chives. Serve immediately. CHINOIS VINAIGRETTE 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 cup peanut oil 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons Asian-style toasted sesame oil Juice of 1 medium lemon Freshly ground black pepper Salt

In a small mixing bowl, combine the vinegar, peanut oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, and lemon juice. Whisk briskly until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate any unused dressing in a covered nonreactive container. Use within several days.
