Derek Yan and Chryssie Twist: Engaged to be varied By Ashley Martin It seems Derek Yan and Chryssie Twist have become adept at mindreading in their year-and-a-half as a couple. “Before we even started dating we matched and we wouldn’t even tell each other. Today I was like, ‘both blue?’ We didn’t even plan it,” said Twist. The Regina couple got engaged in October and are now busy planning an August wedding that’s true to their style: “I guess we’re both pretty vibrant for colour,” said Yan. “Funky patterns or colours as well.” Both aim for wardrobes that are a little different than everybody else’s; the same goes for their big day. The wedding party will wear apple green and eggplant. Yan’s tux is grey and white, and Twist has opted for a less traditional wedding gown. “It’s not poofy because I’m not princessy or anything. It’s just subtle but sexy.” Twist’s work attire is relegated to black, whether it’s as a Toyota service adviser or a bartender. Even in her previous job as a Chatters hair stylist, she couldn’t wear colour. So outside of work, “I’m more of a loud dresser, more bright colours,” she said. That extends to her hair. She’s dyed it since age 12. “Before this it was purple, red and black, and I’ve had that for three years. I recently just changed it because I don’t want to look back on the wedding pictures and be like, ‘What the hell?’” Now it’s “all red with one funky chunk; can’t really go too bland because it’s not me.” At work as an integration sales specialist for Pro AV, Yan dresses to impress. His closet is well organized with dress shirts, pants, suits, glasses, and a tie rack with over 150 ties. “I would say I’m fairly bad for a guy,” said Yan. But there’s a good reason for it: “I feel like when I dress good, especially in my job, I do better at my job. There’s that confidence level.”

“I think Justin Bieber’s mom is an amazing woman and every woman should read her book! She’s such an inspiration.” — Stephanie Foster “I don’t pay too much attention to how they raise their kids but can’t help but notice how quickly they slim down after they have a baby.” — Nikki Melnyk “I don’t really pay attention to celebrity parents. Quite frankly I don’t have the time to care about who named their kid Rainbow (or some other equally odd name) or who spent more money on a pair of baby shoes than I make in a month.” — Michelle Grodecki

“No I don’t and wouldn’t. I don’t feel the celebrity parents with nannies and butlers and chefs are really parenting, not the hands-on way I do. If celebrity parents didn’t have all the extras then we’d have something to talk about! My parenting isn’t scripted — it’s all real.” — Alysia Czmuchalek “The only time I hear anything about celebrity parents is when they’ve done something silly and/ or outrageous. I don’t pay attention to any others that may or may not be mentioned. After all, if they are not in the spotlight with their kids, they must be doing something right at home.” — Carla Contreras “Nope, zero interest.” — Angela O. “No I don’t pay attention to celebrity parents.” — Terri Leniuk “No I do not. I focus on my own family and parenting and am not concerned how they choose to live their lives and raise their children, that is their business and truthfully, all the media hype about them is false most of the time so I don’t waste my time following it.” — Shelly Lambert “I would have to say I don’t pay attention to celebrities at all. I follow their work may it be in music or

Brad Pitt, holding his and Angelina Jolie’s daughter Zahara. File Photo film, but rarely do I put much thought or follow what they do in their personal life.” — Kerri Senkow “I pay attention to punk rock dads!” — Taron Cochrane “Not besides what I might glance at on the cover of magazines while in line at the store. Since their lifestyle is so far removed from ours, I feel like it’s not worth getting wrapped up in reading about all the crazy stuff they might buy for their kids, or the personal decisions they make about how they raise them. Celebrity or not, I feel that people should be free to develop their confidence in themselves as parents without having to compare themselves to other parents, nor feel pressured to make certain parenting decisions based on what they see others do. Though the reality is that this is all easier said than done.” — Kimberly Spangenberg “Never did when the kids were little, and I don’t now. Their worlds are miles different from mine and I have a problem with little girls wearing high heels when their feet are still developing (for an example).” — Lisa Heron “I definitely don’t have an interest in what celebrities do with their kids. There’s enough bad advice floating around that I keep to myself and do what’s best. Celebrities are bananas anyways!” — Colleen Book

“I used to a bit more when I first had my daughter who is almost seven now. I just thought it was interesting to see how they parent, what their kids wear, etc. My daughter was born the day after Suri Cruise so I remember really paying attention to her.” — Chera Miller

CITY NEWS #

S r i S r i R av i S h a n k a r

Message of non-violence comes at right time By Jenn Sharp On the same day as the bombings at the Boston Marathon, a world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader spoke in Regina. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was in the Queen City to deliver a message of peace and to make a plea for non-violence. A crowd of several hundred gathered at the Conexus Arts Centre on April 15 for what was billed as “an evening of wisdom and meditation with Sri Sri.” Just hours earlier, people had been shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic events unfolding in Boston. Shankar is on a global mission to promote his campaign for a “violencefree stress-free society.” He has travelled the world, promoting peace, for years but after the December shootings in Newtown, Conn., he decided to launch a new campaign. His goal is to create social change through non-violence. He asks people to commit an act of non-violence for every violent act they witness. He also shared ways people can reduce the stress in their lives, because, according to Shankar, stress is one of the leading forces behind violence. “I could use a lesson how to reduce my stress,” laughed Regina Mayor Michael Fougere, who welcomed Shankar to Regina at the event. People are invited to take a pledge on the website Nonviolence No Higher Calling (www.nonvio.org). Shankar’s goal is to reach a billion acts of nonviolence. Supporters are asked to create their own act of non-violence on the web page or commit to one of the suggestions, like honouring women or standing up to abuse. Shankar said there are three types of violence: Religious or racist terrorists, people acting out of stress and people who do it for entertainment without realizing the seriousness of their actions. “To combat these three types (of violence) we need to make the society, the general population and the kids more aware of it.”

(Bottom photo) An important part of the Art of Living’s headquarters in Bangalore is a cow sanctuary. Indigenous breeds of cattle are kept here and provide the complex with its enormous daily needs of milk, butter, cheese and cream. QC PHOTOs BY JENN SHARP

Shankar’s idea for eliminating violence in the world is simple. He believes that if more people can eliminate stress through their lives through meditation and other methods, they will be less inclined to act out violently. “Today the world is in bad shape, not because of a few bad guys but because many good people are not acting. My idea was to have all those good people take a proactive stance against violence.” He said non-violence begins at home with your loved ones and by creating harmony in your family. “Don’t get upset immediately. Take your turn to get upset,” he said with a

laugh. “Don’t be so quick to get mad when you feel you’ve been wronged. “If someone is not good to you or a little nasty to you, you don’t need to repeat that. You can reply with an act of kindness.” Shankar founded the Art of Living Foundation in 1981 in Bangalore, India. It is now the world’s largest volunteer-based non-governmental organization in the world, with locations in 150 countries. Programs on meditation, stress elimination and yoga, along with traditional Ayurvedic medicine are offered to people from all religious and cultural backgrounds. Bangalore’s Art of Living international headquarters is a sprawling

oasis of manicured gardens, traditionally-crafted buildings and animal sanctuaries, separated from the bustling city by a high wall and innumerable trees. Underprivileged youth study their lessons in one area (the foundation supports 25,000 students and has founded 220 schools). People flock to a huge lotus-shaped meditation hall in another area. Before his 10-day Canadian tour, the 56-year-old visited Europe and the United States, and is headed for Japan, Indonesia and China in May. He spends between 150 to 200 days every year spreading his peace message and meeting with global leaders. Joy is what drives Shankar to

travel the world and speak to crowds that number in the hundreds of thousands. “When you see a nice movie, you have a tendency to call your friends and say, ‘See it. It’s so good.’ Why (do) we do that? The nature of happiness is to spread it. The nature of joy is to share. You don’t say when you’re happy ‘leave me alone, I’m so happy.’ When you’re happy you simply want to share it with everybody.” For more information on the Art of Living in Saskatchewan contact Harjit Bajwa in Regina at harjit.bajwa@ artofliving.ca or Shreya Shah in Saskatoon at shreya.shah@artofliving. ca.

M Y FAV O U R I T E P L A C E

Mother exhibits love for museum By Andrew Matte When Alexander Gerein was born, his mother Denise went looking for a place to take him to enjoy some time outside the house and maybe even learn a little something. That’s when they started visiting the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, whether it was just to enjoy a long stroll indoors during the winter, see a new exhibit or participate in one of the programs for children. Now that Alexander is eight and in Grade 2, the exploration continues.

Q: How did you learn about the museum? A: My husband was the one who took me there for the first time. He enjoyed it as a child. Q: What was your first impression? A: When I went there for the first time, I thought it was just wonderful. But we really got into it when we had our son. Q: Why did you take him there? A: At first, it was more a place to go that was interesting and it was a place where we could get away from the cold. We could walk around and we could take our son around in the stroller. He was always very fascinated with all the animals and the dioramas and all of that. And we were there several times a week. Q: Did your appreciation for the museum change as Alexander got older? A: As he got older, he got into it in different ways. He started to go to regular activities that they had for kids. We don’t go as often now as we used to. But we still go a lot. Q: Do you enjoy your visits more now that your son is older? A: We enjoy it now in different ways. My son looks at things differently now. When he learns about different things in school, he can relate to

things at the museum better.

Q: What is one of your favourite things about the museum? A: Every time you go, you see something different. Q: What sorts of things does Alexander enjoy? A: My son likes the exhibits and he likes to play in the Paleo Pit. That is an area that they have in the lower level. It’s sort of a games area. And there are some homemade games where you can learn about dino-

saurs. There are plastic dinosaurs where kids can play. And there’s an art table. It’s a great activity room. Every time my son goes, they pick up something new, whether it’s a new animal or whatever. Our last game was a little contest to see who can see the most rabbits. Or who can find the most owls.

Q: When a child is very young, does it matter if they’re actually learning anything? A: It doesn’t really matter what they are learning. And sometimes, it

doesn’t matter the reason the exhibit was set out for ... You get excitement when you see through a child’s eyes. It brings a lot of joy.

Q: Do you ever leave without taking in something you wanted to see? A: We have gone so many times that if we miss something one time, we’re back again to have another look anyway. Q: What parts of the museum do you and Alexander enjoy together? A: In the basement, there’s a First

Nations gallery and that is awesome. My son is in Grade 2 and they are learning about First Nations things and he really enjoys that. There are these neat traffic signs there. So we play a little game and we stop to yield and that kind of thing. I am not even sure whether it’s an official game.

Q: Is there anything at the museum that you aren’t a fan of? A: I can’t say we have sat down to watch all the little movies they have. We get kind of bored with that. But I know there are people who enjoy it.

My dad used to say find a job you love, you don’t have to work a day in your life. — Milton Rebello

Rebello working his way to the top

Milton Rebello, executive chef at the Hotel Saskatchewan, has achieved the rare designation of Certified Chef de Cuisine. Originally from Mangalore, India, he now lives in Regina with his family.  QC Photo by Don Healy

By Ashley Martin Melville Rebello had many words of wisdom for his two children. Son Milton took one especially important saying to heart. “My dad used to say find a job you love, you don’t have to work a day in your life.”

He recommended becoming a chef, tailor or barber, because, “‘These three things you’ll never be broke, you’ll never go hungry,’” recalled the Hotel Saskatchewan executive chef. “I think it was a good choice.” Milton Rebello’s childhood interests worked their way into his profession. His artistic skills transmitted to a love of fruit and vegetable carv-

ing. His aptitude for soccer served well when all the cooks at his New York restaurant would play a game of pickup between hectic shifts. And of course, as a 12-year-old, helping his mom Hilda prepare meals applied to his entire future. Between cleaning, peeling and slicing vegetables, mother and son took turns grinding masala, achiev-

ing perfect consistency after an hour. Chapati flatbread was another of his first foods, rolling out the dough and cooking it in a skillet. “I was really interested in cooking, right from the start,” said Rebello. Mangalore, a coastal city in southwest India, was a paradise of local harvesting. It’s a wonder not everyone becomes a chef there.

Rebello’s grandmother planted vegetables. The family had a coconut and cashew plantation and rice paddies. An uncle had a coconut oil factory and his grandfather was a fisherman. What they didn’t produce themselves, they’d trade for. Everything was fresh. Continued on Page 10

“It was fantastic,” he said. He maintains a love of local ingredients. It’s one of his mandates at the Hotel Saskatchewan: “We believe in doing things clean. The ingredients speak for itself and we love local.” Things have changed in his hometown. India is more competitive; the fields are outsourced as the younger generation has moved away, following an urge to travel or study. As did Rebello. He was 19 when he left India after three years of International Hotel Management school in Mumbai. He hasn’t lived there since. “There was a little Gypsy in me who wanted to travel and learn and see new things, and I loved it. Initially, I missed home a lot but once you get used to it, everywhere’s home. You make yourself at home.” For now, home is Saskatchewan. Living in Regina is a prototype of the quotation on his

office wall: “Work is a slice of your life; it’s not the entire pizza.” “This is busy but a good busy. Here in Regina, I think people take the time to live as well. That’s what I like. It’s a small town with a bigtown feel.” It took years of long, hard hours before arriving here three years ago. Rebello worked in Dubai, Bahrain, Tanzania, Oman and Saudi Arabia. He spent seven years in the Persian Gulf and learned Arabic in three months. “You have no choice because everybody speaks only Arabic. You adapt and then you improve as you go,” said Rebello, who also speaks five Indian languages (Tulu, Kannada, Marathi, Hindi and Konkani), and dabbles in others. Because his wife Louise hails from China, he’s learning Mandarin — he jokes that his 2½-year-old daughter Skye is teaching him.

He’s a pretty new guy to town, he’s a humble guy, he’s not out there making a lot of noise and banging on his own chest kind of guy, but he was really, really focused on winning. — Marla Preston

In each place, he started from square one, happy to work his way up in a situation wherein a single mistake could cost someone his job. “There’s no write-up business there; you make a mistake, somebody complains, that’s it: ‘I want his face out of here.’” In Saudi Arabia if you’re fired, you’re forced to leave the country. Likewise, there’s no clocking out: You leave when your job is done. In tough conditions, Rebello excelled. Thriving under pressure is a trait that has helped him since. Last year he earned the Certified Chef de Cuisine designation — the lone to pass in a class of 28. In February, he won bronze in the national culinary championship Gold Medal Plates. As one of few English speakers, Rebello ran front-ofhouse in two restaurants and two airport lounges for South Arabian Airlines, owned by the royal family. He left because he missed cooking. Rebello started from scratch at Carnival Cruise Lines, where he spent three years. As assistant cook, he learned from Austrian and French chefs during his paid shifts, then volunteered in the cold kitchen to learn more about fruit and vegetable carving for the big buffets. “There are chefs who are watching you and seeing, ‘OK, this guy really wants to be better.’ So probably that helped me to step up a few ladders. I think I did pretty well.” After studying at Johnson & Wales University, he worked in two restaurants proximal to New York City, Tamarind in Port Chester, N.Y., and Dakshin in Stamford, Conn. Off Long Island Sound, fresh fish was the staple on the menus; the pier was mere blocks away. Using what you’ve got just makes sense. It’s why Rebello forwent his plan to bring west-coast influences to his Regina kitchen. When he met some local producers and started getting a vibe for Saskatchewan people’s tastes, he realized he’d need a change of plan. “They enjoy clean food. (It doesn’t) have to be too complicated. But I do give a bit of flair of places that I’ve been to,” said Rebello. “We want to keep food that people relate to, something that’s been done in the past with a modern flair.” “He’s got a lot of great ideas and (he’s) just very creative,” said executive sous-chef Chris Miller of his boss. “He’s got a lot of talent and he’s very enthusiastic about food and creating different things and menu items.” Rebello loves local ingredients: fiddleheads, saskatoon berries, lamb, goat cheese, beets, lentils and trout caviar. Coming to Canada, let alone Saskatchewan, wasn’t his original intent. The Sept. 11 attacks ultimately sent him here, because getting a green card was too difficult. He moved to Edmonton with the hope of returning to the U.S., but never did. “I loved it here. Suddenly it was living again. In the U.S. I used to work 12, 14 hours every day, six days a week. The restaurants there were tough. You’d do 200 covers every night but still it was fun doing those,” said Rebello. “Once you get a rating from New York Times, that’s it, you just keep the quality and they’ll keep coming. “But then when you have that go-go-go, you enjoy it too, right?”

said, laughing. Nationals comprised a gruelling twoday competition. Day 1 was full of mystery (matching an unlabelled bottle of wine with food) and difficulty (stretching $500 into a 400-person meal in a mere nine hours). The next morning, Rebello transformed six ingredients into two different dishes, 10 plates each, in one hour. With the pressure of live TV cameras, he finished with 14 seconds to spare. “I’m very calm under pressure. I think the pressure gets the best out of me. I go into a different zone altogether.” But inside is another story. Once, Preston remarked on how collected Rebello appeared and he replied with another of his dad’s famous sayings: “‘You ever seen a swan swimming? On the shore they look beautiful and posed but underneath their feet are just going like crazy,’” Preston recalled. “I think it was a perfect description of him.”

He eventually settled in at the Westin in Edmonton, where he earned his Red Seal and was bit by the competition bug, competing under chef Michael Brown and making nationals in 2006. It was Rebello’s goal to achieve nationals again, which he did in November, beating out Conexus Arts Centre chef Leo Pantel and Crave chef Jonathan Thauberger. At the national competition in Kelowna in February, he became the first Saskatchewan chef in the competition’s 10-year history to win a medal. Even winning the local competition amazed Hotel Saskatchewan general manager Marla Preston. “He’s a pretty new guy to town, he’s a humble guy, he’s not out there making a lot of noise and banging on his own chest kind of guy, but he was really, really focused on winning. I thought, ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen if he doesn’t win?’” When Rebello won gold here, she thought, “‘Here we go again. I don’t think I can take the heart attack,’” she

This is busy but a good busy. Here in Regina, I think people take the time to live as well. That’s what I like. It’s a small town with a big-town feel. — Rebello

Milton Rebello (right) won a bronze medal at the Gold Medal Plates Canadian Culinary Championships, held in Kelowna, B.C. Gold was awarded to Marc St. Jacques (centre) from Toronto’s Auberge du Pommier, and the silver went to Jamie Stunt (left) from Oz Kafe in Ottawa. Photo supplied by Gold Medal Plates

That evening, he cooked a signature dish for 700 people. He went prepared, carting with him Saskatchewan lamb, local lentils, goat cheese, heritage potatoes and mustard. He created a delectable dish of lentil tuile, goat cheese balls in beet powder, Indian-spiced root vegetables, pear chutney, green pea puree/ginger/ potato/corn hash and mustard-andpistachio rack of lamb. “My dad used to quote a lot and he used to say ‘aim for the skies and you’ll land on the treetops.’ I think I landed near the treetops because I did aim for the gold,” said Rebello, who is already planning for next time. Competing “brings the young Milton back again.” For the record, he is only 41. Bronze is a feat, but Rebello thinks

he knows where he went wrong. “I went too brave. I could have toned it down a little bit. When you make 10 things, the seventh or eighth are not perfect.” Winning isn’t everything. Rebello said the best part of the competition was knowing that his wife was watching — albeit on TV. She stayed home, eight months pregnant with their daughter Livia. They met while he was substitute teaching at the NAIT culinary school in Edmonton. She was a student in his class. The two cooks have struck a balance: At the hotel it’s his kitchen; at home it’s hers — she doesn’t work outside the house. “If I don’t put something in the right place, I get hell for it,” he said,

laughing. They organize their meals on a blackboard — timing, ingredient lists, what’s defrosted. If they’re having lamb or pork belly, general comfort foods, Rebello tends to take the reins — those are his favourite things to cook. Louise is always trying new things. At work, Rebello has a lot of experience to draw on. There are 30-year employees working under him. His pastry chef, Ramon Buenavista, has been there 22 years and meticulously takes down each recipe. “I’m only as good as the cooks are,” said Rebello, who oversees 36 cooks and stewards. “They’re very passionate. That gets the best out of me.” And he gets the best out of them.

HORS D’OEUVRES

■ Rebello likes competition TV shows (big surprise there). He was a fan of Kitchen Nightmares before it got excessively dramatic: “Gordon Ramsay is a terrific chef but he over-exaggerates. I mean, it could be bad but not enough. He spits out half his food.” ■ He collects foodie books — he has all of Anthony Bourdain’s books and enjoys his show No Reservations. “That guy is the real deal.” ■ He and his family make a point of travelling at least twice a year. When they come home, Rebello makes his own version of whatever they ate on vacation. ■ After a stressful day at work, loud music in the car helps him unwind. He listens to everything, including Latino music, heavy metal, alternative rock and country. ■ Rebello’s future goals include writing a cookbook and maybe starting a food truck.

“When I’m doing something new, everybody’s eyes are on it.” Added Preston: “He is pretty amazing when it comes to training

and just instilling that passion in everyone that works for him. I just don’t know a person in the hotel who could say anything bad about him.”

Majid uses hip hop as connection to Middle East By Charles Hamilton Ahmad Majid has never stepped foot in war-torn Iraq. His parents left the country after the first Gulf War. But his ancestral birth place is the inspiration for his politically-charged hiphop. “I have a lot of family that is living in Iraq. They are all on that side of the world,” Majid said. “That’s what I’m about as artist, trying to bridge, to connect the gap between that world and this one.” Majid, who goes by the stage name Mualla, released his first full length album last October. From the Heart to the Fist is an emotional album. At times it is full of anger while other times it seems to be an inspirational cry for justice. Majid has lost friends and family members since the most recent war began in 2003. Others have been injured, kidnapped for ransom or tortured. “There is almost a sense of guilt, especially not being there and not being able to do anything and being helpless,” he says. “That’s why I started writing in the first place.” Majid lived in Dubai for two years during grade school and he says that is when he first began thinking seriously about the Middle East. He has been listening to hip hop for most of his life, but it wasn’t until he graduated high school that he began writing and performing hip hop himself. “(Hip hop)’s roots came from talking about struggle and oppression. I feel like I’m fulfilling that old tradition. New age, new topics, but hip hop has always been talking about struggle,” he says. Originally from Moose Jaw, Majid has also made a name for himself in the local spoken word poetry community in Saskatoon. Without beats to back him up, he says the poetry aspect of performance lets him focus on the writing. “Spoken word is the raw lyricism, the raw words and there is nothing to hide behind,” he says.

His says most of his writing is about teaching people in the west about the struggles in the Middle East. He hopes his music is going beyond the headlines and giving people a glimpse into struggles they never

focused on before. “I realize that life over there is not that much different. It may be a different culture, but the people and how people act is not that much different,” Majid says.

Since the album came out he says he has had great response, much of it from people he didn’t expect. The fact that his work is touching and teaching so many people means he will keep expanding his horizons ahead

of his next project, he says. “Now I pay close attention to what’s going on in the entire world. I don’t want to limit myself to just talking about the Middle East. The world is much bigger.”

Motocross and supercross enthrall fans Motorcycles remain a popular form of transportation all around the world, but they are also prime machines for thrill-seekers and extreme sport lovers. Thousands of people enjoy the thrill and power involved in taking motorcycles off-road for extreme racing. There are many varieties of motorcycle racing, but some of the more popular are motocross events and derivatives like supercross. Those unfamiliar with the world of offroad motorcycle racing may not know the differences between motocross and supercross. Since motocross and supercross are so similar, some people might mistakenly feel they are the same thing. In fact, they are two completely different sports.

Motocross

Motocross motorcycle racing takes place on enclosed, off-road circuits. The sport is derived from motorcycle trial competitions that originated in the United Kingdom. The outdoor tracks of motocross vary in size, and races are held in all types of weather conditions. Because the space needed for tracks is so vast, many tracks are located in rural locations. Although the natural terrain helps shape part of the course, some man-made modifications are also included to create jumps, pits, sharp turns, and other obstacles.

Motocross is celebrated across the globe. Since the sport was introduced in 1966, motocross has become more popular in the United States. The Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), based in Paris, France, is the global governing sanctioning body of motorcycle racing and represents 103 national motorcycle federations. Canadians also participate in the sport through Canadian Motocross.

Supercross

Motocross enthusiasts sometimes find attending a motocross competition

is difficult due to the rural location of outdoor tracks. And once there, spectators can only see the portion of the race closest to their seat. But enterprising individuals created subdisciplines of the racing that could take place within indoor arenas, and supercross and arenacross were born. Supercross is typically held on manmade tracks that are smaller than outdoor motocross tracks. Football stadiums and other indoor stadiums are retrofitted to accommodate these tracks. Even though the racing takes place indoors, it is still considered off-road racing.

Easy ways to be more active

With supercross, the race is shorter than motocross and there are typically fewer racers because of space constraints. The size of the arena also limits the types of jumps and other stunts that can be accomplished depending on the height of the building. Some people argue that supercross is more extreme because the size of the arena forces racers to be more precise and there are a greater number of rules governing the races. The main motocross championships are the FIM Motocross World Championship, which is typically held in Europe, and the AMAMotocross Championship that begins in early May and runs through September in the United States. The annual Motocross des Nations is held at the end of the year when National and World Championship series have ended. The competition involves teams of three riders representing their nations. As motocross continues to draw fans and racers alike, different variations of the sport also continue to evolve. Freestyle, supermoto, ATV/Quad motocross, and mini-motocross are derivatives of the original sport. Extreme sport enthusiasts have many options from which to choose. Motocross and supercross are two sports that boast a loyal legion of fans.

Embracing an active lifestyle that leaves behind the comforts of the couch can be a difficult adjustment. But the payoffs of adopting a more active lifestyle are numerous. In addition to feeling better physically, men and women who embrace more physical activity typically notice improvements in their mood as well. The positive mental effects related to physical activity are no accident, as numerous studies have shown exercise can stimulate chemicals in your brain that improve your mood while also lowering stress and helping you relax. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aerobic exercise or a mix of aerobic exercise and strength-training activities three to five times a week for 30 to 60 minutes has been shown to improve cognitive ability and judgement, reduce a person’s risk of developing depression and improve sleep. The numerous positive effects of physical activity illustrate just how beneficial such a lifestyle can be. Even better, embracing an active lifestyle does not mean you have

to start planning that expedition to climb Mount Everest or start training for the triathlon. In fact, a few minor adjustments to your current routine might be all it takes to reap the rewards of living a more active lifestyle.

Walk This Way

Walking more can help many people quickly and easily improve their physical and mental condition. Instead of retiring to the couch after dinner, take a walk around the neighborhood with your family or significant other. Or go it alone and use your nightly walk as a peaceful opportunity to collect your thoughts. Walking after dinner is a great way to get in some daily cardiovascular exercise, and a post-dinner walk might encourage you to eat less. Walking can be incorporated into your daily routine in other ways as well. On shopping trips, park further away from the store so you can walk more. And walk kids to school or the bus stop instead of dropping them off in your car.

Do Your Own Chores

It might be easier to cut your landscaper a check and let him look after your property, but that big green yard outside your front door presents a great opportunity for you to be more physically active. Mow your own lawn, choosing a push mower instead of a ride-on mower, and tend to your trees, shrubs and flowers yourself. This is a great way to be more physically active, and the physical and mental rewards might just be outdone by the pride you feel when seeing a beautiful landscape you tended to yourself.

might be able to enlist your friends, family members or coworkers to join you. Signing up for a 10K might be just the motivation you need to get out and start training. And once the training begins, chances are you won’t want to stop even after the charity event has come and gone.

Join a Sports League

Many men and women played in recreational sports leagues as a youth or young adult. Unfortunately, it’s easy to abandon those recreational activities when the responsibilities of work and family take over. But joining a sports league is a great way to reach your weekly exercise goals, Embrace a Cause meet new friends and reconnect with If the known physical and mental a game you might have loved as a benefits of an active lifestyle are child. Many people find it’s easier to not proving to be ample motivation embrace a more active lifestyle when in your quest to be more physically they enjoy their physical activities, active, then perhaps the opportunity so find a sport you enjoy playing and to help others might do the trick. then start playing it more. Numerous charities sponsor charity Getting off the couch and walks or runs that provide participants embracing an active lifestyle has both with an opportunity to raise money physical and mental benefits that can for a good cause. Even better, such events tend to take all comers, so you improve all aspects of daily life.

SOUTHERN SASKATCHEWAN’S BEST SELECTION OF PONTOON, FISHING & SPORT BOATS; WAVERUNNERS; DOCK & BOAT HOISTS!

Horseback Riding Safety Tips According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, an estimated 78,499 horseback riding injuries occurred in 2009. While more than half of those injuries happened to men and women between the ages of 25 to 64, all age groups are potentially susceptible to injury when horseback riding. While there are no guarantees when getting on a horse, there are steps riders can take to reduce their risk of injury when horseback riding. * Sign up for lessons. Riders with minimal or no riding experience should get lessons from a professional. Lessons are expensive, but often worth the additional cost. When looking for lessons, consider

bringing a friend of similar skill level along, as many instructors offer discounted rates for couples or larger groups. * Wear a helmet. Riders should always wear a properly fitted equestrian helmet. Make sure the helmet is certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials and the Safety Equipment Institute. Don’t mistakenly assume a bicycle helmet will do the trick. Bicycle helmets are designed to bear impact on the front or side of the head, while equestrian helmets are designed to bear impact on the back of the head. This is an important distinction, as the head injuries from horse riding often are to the back of the head. * Be safe with stirrups. Beginners should inquire about safety stirrups, which can greatly reduce the risk of being dragged by the horse. But even more experienced riders should wear a boot with a good heal when riding. This keeps the foot from slipping through the stirrups. * Don’t become a backseat rider. Horseback riding can be a relaxing hobby, but riders should never get too relaxed. When riding, keep in mind you are on an animal. Stay alert when riding.

Avoiding injury while horseback riding often comes down to a few precious seconds. In the blink of an eye a person can either avert an injury or succumb to an accident. Though horseback riding is a leisurely and relaxing hobby, riders should always stay alert. * Never ride alone. Inexperienced and even veteran riders should always ride with an experienced partner. Should an accident occur, a partner can administer CPR if necessary and call for help. When going out for a ride, make sure at least one rider has brought along his or her cell phone. * Never ride under the influence of alcohol or medication. Riders should always be coherent and sober when riding. Alcohol and recreational or prescription drugs greatly reduce a person’s reaction time, which can put them in significant danger when horseback riding. Horseback riding can be a rewarding and relaxing hobby. But riders should always exercise caution and follow principles of riding etiquette to reduce the risk of injury to themselves and fellow riders.

Motocross and supercross enthrall fans Motorcycles remain a popular form of transportation all around the world, but they are also prime machines for thrill-seekers and extreme sport lovers. Thousands of people enjoy the thrill and power involved in taking motorcycles off-road for extreme racing. There are many varieties of motorcycle racing, but some of the more popular are motocross events and derivatives like supercross. Those unfamiliar with the world of offroad motorcycle racing may not know the differences between motocross and supercross. Since motocross and supercross are so similar, some people might mistakenly feel they are the same thing. In fact, they are two completely different sports.

Motocross

Motocross motorcycle racing takes place on enclosed, off-road circuits. The sport is derived from motorcycle trial competitions that originated in the United Kingdom. The outdoor tracks of motocross vary in size, and races are held in all types of weather conditions. Because the space needed for tracks is so vast, many tracks are located in rural locations. Although the natural terrain helps shape part of the course, some man-made modifications are also included to create jumps, pits, sharp turns, and other obstacles.

Motocross is celebrated across the globe. Since the sport was introduced in 1966, motocross has become more popular in the United States. The Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), based in Paris, France, is the global governing sanctioning body of motorcycle racing and represents 103 national motorcycle federations. Canadians also participate in the sport through Canadian Motocross.

Supercross

Motocross enthusiasts sometimes find attending a motocross competition

is difficult due to the rural location of outdoor tracks. And once there, spectators can only see the portion of the race closest to their seat. But enterprising individuals created subdisciplines of the racing that could take place within indoor arenas, and supercross and arenacross were born. Supercross is typically held on manmade tracks that are smaller than outdoor motocross tracks. Football stadiums and other indoor stadiums are retrofitted to accommodate these tracks. Even though the racing takes place indoors, it is still considered off-road racing.

Easy ways to be more active

With supercross, the race is shorter than motocross and there are typically fewer racers because of space constraints. The size of the arena also limits the types of jumps and other stunts that can be accomplished depending on the height of the building. Some people argue that supercross is more extreme because the size of the arena forces racers to be more precise and there are a greater number of rules governing the races. The main motocross championships are the FIM Motocross World Championship, which is typically held in Europe, and the AMAMotocross Championship that begins in early May and runs through September in the United States. The annual Motocross des Nations is held at the end of the year when National and World Championship series have ended. The competition involves teams of three riders representing their nations. As motocross continues to draw fans and racers alike, different variations of the sport also continue to evolve. Freestyle, supermoto, ATV/Quad motocross, and mini-motocross are derivatives of the original sport. Extreme sport enthusiasts have many options from which to choose. Motocross and supercross are two sports that boast a loyal legion of fans.

Embracing an active lifestyle that leaves behind the comforts of the couch can be a difficult adjustment. But the payoffs of adopting a more active lifestyle are numerous. In addition to feeling better physically, men and women who embrace more physical activity typically notice improvements in their mood as well. The positive mental effects related to physical activity are no accident, as numerous studies have shown exercise can stimulate chemicals in your brain that improve your mood while also lowering stress and helping you relax. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, aerobic exercise or a mix of aerobic exercise and strength-training activities three to five times a week for 30 to 60 minutes has been shown to improve cognitive ability and judgement, reduce a person’s risk of developing depression and improve sleep. The numerous positive effects of physical activity illustrate just how beneficial such a lifestyle can be. Even better, embracing an active lifestyle does not mean you have

to start planning that expedition to climb Mount Everest or start training for the triathlon. In fact, a few minor adjustments to your current routine might be all it takes to reap the rewards of living a more active lifestyle.

Walk This Way

Walking more can help many people quickly and easily improve their physical and mental condition. Instead of retiring to the couch after dinner, take a walk around the neighborhood with your family or significant other. Or go it alone and use your nightly walk as a peaceful opportunity to collect your thoughts. Walking after dinner is a great way to get in some daily cardiovascular exercise, and a post-dinner walk might encourage you to eat less. Walking can be incorporated into your daily routine in other ways as well. On shopping trips, park further away from the store so you can walk more. And walk kids to school or the bus stop instead of dropping them off in your car.

Do Your Own Chores

It might be easier to cut your landscaper a check and let him look after your property, but that big green yard outside your front door presents a great opportunity for you to be more physically active. Mow your own lawn, choosing a push mower instead of a ride-on mower, and tend to your trees, shrubs and flowers yourself. This is a great way to be more physically active, and the physical and mental rewards might just be outdone by the pride you feel when seeing a beautiful landscape you tended to yourself.

might be able to enlist your friends, family members or coworkers to join you. Signing up for a 10K might be just the motivation you need to get out and start training. And once the training begins, chances are you won’t want to stop even after the charity event has come and gone.

Join a Sports League

Many men and women played in recreational sports leagues as a youth or young adult. Unfortunately, it’s easy to abandon those recreational activities when the responsibilities of work and family take over. But joining a sports league is a great way to reach your weekly exercise goals, Embrace a Cause meet new friends and reconnect with If the known physical and mental a game you might have loved as a benefits of an active lifestyle are child. Many people find it’s easier to not proving to be ample motivation embrace a more active lifestyle when in your quest to be more physically they enjoy their physical activities, active, then perhaps the opportunity so find a sport you enjoy playing and to help others might do the trick. then start playing it more. Numerous charities sponsor charity Getting off the couch and walks or runs that provide participants embracing an active lifestyle has both with an opportunity to raise money physical and mental benefits that can for a good cause. Even better, such events tend to take all comers, so you improve all aspects of daily life.

Horseback Riding Safety Tips According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, an estimated 78,499 horseback riding injuries occurred in 2009. While more than half of those injuries happened to men and women between the ages of 25 to 64, all age groups are potentially susceptible to injury when horseback riding. While there are no guarantees when getting on a horse, there are steps riders can take to reduce their risk of injury when horseback riding. * Sign up for lessons. Riders with minimal or no riding experience should get lessons from a professional. Lessons are expensive, but often worth the additional cost. When looking for lessons, consider

bringing a friend of similar skill level along, as many instructors offer discounted rates for couples or larger groups. * Wear a helmet. Riders should always wear a properly fitted equestrian helmet. Make sure the helmet is certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials and the Safety Equipment Institute. Don’t mistakenly assume a bicycle helmet will do the trick. Bicycle helmets are designed to bear impact on the front or side of the head, while equestrian helmets are designed to bear impact on the back of the head. This is an important distinction, as the head injuries from horse riding often are to the back of the head. * Be safe with stirrups. Beginners should inquire about safety stirrups, which can greatly reduce the risk of being dragged by the horse. But even more experienced riders should wear a boot with a good heal when riding. This keeps the foot from slipping through the stirrups. * Don’t become a backseat rider. Horseback riding can be a relaxing hobby, but riders should never get too relaxed. When riding, keep in mind you are on an animal. Stay alert when riding.

Avoiding injury while horseback riding often comes down to a few precious seconds. In the blink of an eye a person can either avert an injury or succumb to an accident. Though horseback riding is a leisurely and relaxing hobby, riders should always stay alert. * Never ride alone. Inexperienced and even veteran riders should always ride with an experienced partner. Should an accident occur, a partner can administer CPR if necessary and call for help. When going out for a ride, make sure at least one rider has brought along his or her cell phone. * Never ride under the influence of alcohol or medication. Riders should always be coherent and sober when riding. Alcohol and recreational or prescription drugs greatly reduce a person’s reaction time, which can put them in significant danger when horseback riding. Horseback riding can be a rewarding and relaxing hobby. But riders should always exercise caution and follow principles of riding etiquette to reduce the risk of injury to themselves and fellow riders.

Kick up the heat with wood-fired food By Jenn Sharp Eating meat cooked over an open flame is the closest modern humans can get to a primeval culinary experience. Firing up the BBQ for the first time in spring is also the way Canadians say goodbye to winter. Since winter refuses to leave this year, you may be inclined to look beyond your backyard for a BBQ experience. In the Deep South, BBQ is a way of life. Smoking meat and BBQing it to perfection is a skill not to be underestimated — there’s even a job title (pitmaster) for this occupation. Eric Johnson (an experienced pitmaster originally from Oklahoma) and his family opened Smokin’ Okies in Regina in 2006. Food like ribs, pulled pork, brisket, baked beans, sausages, corn bread and chili cheese fries grace Smokin' Okies' menu. Their claim to fame is southern BBQ food cooked the traditional way — over maple logs. The meat is slow cooked for up to 15 hours. How did all the smoke translate to the taste? Smokin Okies’ ribs were delicious. A perfect combination of succulent meat enveloped in a seasoned, crisp outer layer that left my fingers with a lingering, smoky smell. While it’s probably not something I would eat on a first date, one of my favourite meals is a ridiculously messy plate of BBQ ribs. In fact, I’ll know I’ve found the man of my dreams if he’s OK with seeing me in sauce up to my elbows. I was pleasantly surprised with Smokin’ Okies ribs — the hickory BBQ sauce comes served on the side. I prefer it on the ribs but these were so delicious I barely used the sauce. In fact, the sauce was a little overpowering. I much preferred the meat's taste on its own. The new kid in downtown Saskatoon is Woodfire Grill. I was excit-

ed when this place opened because it’s on one of the best streets in the city. Woodfire proudly serves spirits from Saskatoon’s LB Distillers. Impressively, gluten-free options abound, from all the soups, to the crostini in the caesar salad. Saskatoon has always been a tough market for restaurants — people will try a new place once but if it’s bad, they’ll quickly go back to their old favourites. There’s been plenty come and go over the years, several that I was sad to see leave. Others were better off closing the doors forever. I really hope the management at Woodfire kicks it up a notch because right now this restaurant is headed for the latter. The most disappointing thing is that it has the potential to be so good. The staff is friendly and attentive, the cocktails are fun and the wine list includes my current favourite (and very reasonably priced) — Apothic Red Blend. Trust me and try it, you won’t regret it. I stopped in for the BBQ Beef Sandwich, a braised pulled woodfire beef with onion frites and homemade BBQ sauce atop a woodfire grilled bun. The tender beef is cooked over hickory smoked pellets and bathed in the delicious sauce. The GF bun and overly spiced soup left a bad taste in my mouth — a taste I desperately didn’t want there because I had hoped for good things at Woodfire. To be fair, one meal does not make a restaurant so I returned a second time but with equally disappointing results. In the first few months of business, it takes time for restaurant management to iron out the kinks and ensure consistency. I’d encourage you to try Woodfire for yourself, not because I loved it there but because everyone deserves at least one chance. Smokin’ Okies is located at 2547 Quance St. E. in Regina. Woodfire Grill is at 152 Second Ave. S.

GARDENING #

Landscaping

Establishing a new lawn: seed versus sod By Sara Williams There are two main techniques to start a lawn: sowing seed or laying sod. The commonality is site and soil preparation — control weeds prior to and after establishment, create a gentle slope away from buildings and ensure a minimum 15 cm topsoil depth that contains at least five per cent organic matter. After that, there are advantages and disadvantages to each method. On the one hand, seeding offers more choices in grass species and varieties. However, although cheaper than sodding, establishing a lawn from seed takes considerably longer and involves labour over an extended period. If seeding, use high-quality Canada No. 1 grass seed. This quality designation guarantees purity, negligible weed content and a relatively high germination rate. The best time to seed a lawn is midto late summer to avoid the spring flush of annual weeds. You should allow at least six to eight weeks before winter. Because natural rainfall is at its lowest at this time, irrigation is usually necessary during the establishment period. Use higher seeding rates if you are unable to water; if trying to establish on slopes, banks or areas prone to erosion; or for quicker, denser establishment. Besides, lawn seed is relatively cheap. To spread, use a cyclone-type bag spreader or a push-type centrifugal or drop spreader. Divide your seed into two equal amounts to ensure uniform distribution. Set your spreader at the lowest possible setting and distribute half in a north-south direction and the rest in an east-west direction. Use a roller to make sure the seed is in firm contact with the soil. Expect 10 to 14 days before you see any signs of growth. Grass seedlings are very sensitive to heat and drought. Do not allow to dry out, especially during hot, dry or windy weather. Watering seedlings

Sod will give you an instant lawn and requires less maintenance during establishment but the grass choices are limited.  PHOTO COURTESY SARA WILLIAMS

differs from watering an established lawn. It should be frequent and light, with little pressure and fine droplets. As the root system penetrates deeper, so should the amount and frequency of irrigation until you have a fully established lawn. An established lawn requires about two cm of water per week, including rainfall. Mowing stimulates tillering (a stem produced by grass plants) and rhizome production, which increases the density of the lawn. Mow a newly seeded lawn to 8 cm when the grass reaches about 11 cm. Leaving the grass slightly longer provides a greater leaf surface area for photosynthesis and enhances rooting. Do not remove

more than one-third of the leaf blade at each mowing. Ensure that your lawn mower blades are sharp. Wait to use a newly seeded lawn until after its second or third mowing. Conversely, sod produces an almost instant lawn. It immediately reduces erosion and runoff and involves much less care and maintenance during establishment than seeding. But it is more expensive and your choice of grass is often more limited. Sod is preferred for sloped areas. You can lay sod through most of the growing season provided rooting occurs prior to freeze-up. More water will be needed in midsummer. If possible, select a sod grown in the same

soil texture as in your own yard to ensure better water percolation and faster root penetration of the sod into the soil. Good-quality sod is grown from seed under irrigation. It should be dense, uniform in size and thickness, weed free and hold together when handled. Sod should be harvested, delivered and laid within the same or next day. If left in piles, it is vulnerable to heating and drying. Upon delivery, place it in shade, cover with a tarp and lay it as quickly as possible. Purchase an extra 10 per cent to allow for waste. Do not lay sod on dry, crusted soil. Rake and moisten the soil just prior

to sodding. Begin at a building or sidewalk, laying the sod in brickwork fashion. Lay it perpendicular to slopes, starting at the bottom and working upward. Roll after laying to put the sod in firm contact with the soil. Water thoroughly — about 15 cm into the topsoil below. Sod has a limited root system and is vulnerable to drying out.

By James Romanow Wine World reviews a number of wines I think of as orphans. If you really want to drink zinfandel I won’t hold it against you (much), but there are more than 1,000 wine varietals out there. How many have you tried so far? Let us begin with a bit of history. The best archeological evidence has wine emerging from the Anatolian peninsula in Georgia around 9,000 years ago. This is roughly in line with the beginning of agriculture. It appears possible (probable?) that we became agrarians to make better beer and wine. It didn’t take the first brewers and vintners long to work out that the best stuff came from particular plants and that meant they had to be cultivated. Like my mother always said, you should only work at things you enjoy, and the notion of the awaiting wine was incentive enough to turn that spear into a ploughshare. Immediately downstream from Georgia was Greece. They too have several thousand years of wine making under their belt. The generally acknowledged king varietal is Xinomavro, usually found from the Naoussa appellation. If you’re a lover of dry, elegant older wines, you need to try Boutari Grand Reserve. The wine reminds me a lot of Barolo, particularly in that brick red colour seen in the refracted part of the wine stem at left. The bouquet is also slightly floral; the palate brisk and dark. This is a real spiced meat wine. It goes
