Gaga kicks off star-studded MMVAs

A group of Canadians set off from Pearson airport yesterday to join an international flotilla in an effort to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. The Canadian ship Tahrir, one of 10 vessels sailing in Freedom Flotilla II, is expected to carry 33 civil society delegates, politicians, journalists, artists, peace and human rights activists, and small business owners to protest the blockade and bring medical aid to Gaza. With more than 1,000 civilians participating in the flotilla, Lyn Adamson said she hopes to put an end to the blockade through citizen action. “It isn’t about them. It isn’t about Israel. It’s about the people in Gaza. They need the aid and they need to be able to use their harbour,” said Adamson, co-chair of Canadi-

an Voice of Women for Peace. “People are just not getting enough. They’re not able to build the economy and they’re drinking from contaminated water because the infrastructure has not been rebuilt.” In May 2010, the first Freedom Flotilla set off to Gaza with seven vessels carrying nearly 700 passengers. Israeli commandos boarded the boats, leading to a confrontation that left nine passengers dead and more than 50 injured. John Greyson, a Toronto filmmaker boarding Freedom Flotilla II, said there is a wide range of possible outcomes in this mission. “The worst-case scenario — which we don’t even need to say — to the best-case scenario, which is that we’re allowed to, as the international law says, to sail into the port,” Greyson said.

Agencies blast feds’ rating system Two immigration groups lost about $500,000 each in federal funds, despite their passing marks on applications Groups say they were not given opportunity to respond Two Toronto immigrant agencies were given passing marks on their grant applications by two out of three assessors, but still lost their federal funding, documents obtained by the Toronto Star show. The South Asian Women’s Centre, established in 1982, lost its bid for $693,000 — the majority of its overall funding — from Ottawa on April 1 and has been forced to cut services and close satellite offices. It served 14,000 clients in 2010. The Daven-

Pass or fail Immigration spokesperson Tracie LeBlanc said both agencies needed a third assessment by managers because staff was split in their decision. Funding was rejected “based on a number of factors, including their overall assessment scores and feasibility rankings. Both organizations received a ‘D’ feasibility rank,” LeBlanc said.

port-Perth Neighbourhood Centre, a multi-service agency in existence since 1985, was denied $426,000 it sought for family settlement services. The two agencies were among some 34 Ontario organizations — 14 in Toronto — that lost federal funding when Citizenship and Immigration Canada cut $43 million in settlement services in Ontario this year. The groups typically deliver language, employment and integration programs to newcomers.

According to documents obtained under the Access to Information Act, funding proposals submitted by the South Asian Women’s Centre and Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood Centre were each reviewed by three immigration officers. In both cases, two assessors gave the funding requests a score above the passing mark of 105, while a third evaluator failed them. “This is absolutely unfair,” said Kripa Sekhar, executive director of the

women’s centre. She said the agency, which was forced to lay off seven workers, repeatedly requested information, without success, on how the funding decision was reached. Immigration spokesperson Tracie LeBlanc said agencies were informed of the decision-making process. “While an organization may have received a ‘pass,’ this does not imply CIC made the final decision to provide funding,” she wrote in an email.

Filmmaker’s anxiety inspires flotilla doc The violence that took place last year on board a flotilla to Gaza spurred Toronto filmmaker John Greyson to sign up for Freedom Flotilla II. “What happened last year, it was such an outrage,” said Greyson. “I think that was the motivation for me this year to become more involved.” Greyson took part in creating a video about the first Freedom Flotilla last year, and has since been involved in the cause. “It’s intimidating, it’s nervous-making going on this,” said Greyson. To keep busy, he created a short video on YouTube calling for support of the flotilla. “It was sort of my coping strategy.” Aside from alleviating his anxiety prior to the mission, he said the purpose of

Diehard fans wait long hours for MMVAs

PCBs continue to languish in west-end dump

Some fans had slipped into sleeping bags and were taking naps on the sidewalk while waiting for the MuchMusic Video Awards

Hidden from sight in the back of a west Toronto parking lot is a 22,000tonne pile of poisonous waste that, by law, must be destroyed by the end of this year. But Schneider Electric, owners of the largest PCB dump site in the province, say it is unlikely to destroy the toxins sitting on its property by the time a federally imposed deadline comes and goes Dec. 31. The company has known it would have to get rid of the PCBs since 2008. After three years, and a deadline extension, Schneider is only now con-

For serious fans, waiting 14 hours on a dusty street corner is a small price to pay for a glimpse of Lady Gaga. By 5:30 a.m. yesterday, Kayla Mitchell, Hillary Forsythe, Sam Hatoski, Natalie MacCabe and Emily Wild were already perched on bright red camping chairs, waiting in line for the MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVAs). Last week, the girls camped out for nearly two days to get wristbands allowing them access to the awards. The five friends from Hamilton were especially eager to see Lady Gaga,

Bruno Mars and Down With Webster perform. “I’m hoping Biebs will show up, too,” said Forsythe. Mitchell, Hatoski and MacCabe have made a tradition out of the MMVAs and have attended every show for the past three years. Forsythe was there for the first time, even though she had to write her most difficult Grade 12 exam the following morning. “It’s worth the wait and the trouble. It’s so much fun,” said Mitchell, who noted the only downside had been the $50 parking fee they had to pay for the day.

Two drown in separate incidents A Toronto teenager has died after being pulled from a pond at a Mennonite camp near Stratford. Hours later, in a separate incident, a 21-yearold Mississauga man died while swimming at a trailer park and resort in Port Colborne. The Toronto teen, 14year-old Malcolm Gyamfi, was swimming with a group of young people just after 4 p.m. Saturday at Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp. Some members of the group went beyond the roped-off area into deeper water and the teen disappeared under the surface. Firefighters pulled him from the water.

Police say the 39year-old woman had just returned to her home in the Dufferin Street and Lawrence Avenue West area about 2 a.m. when she was attacked at her door. She was stabbed once on the top of the head and was treated and released from hospital. The man is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Gyamfi was taken to Stratford General Hospital and then to London’s Victoria Hospital where he died about 11 p.m. Saturday. The second incident occurred at about 9 p.m. Saturday in Port Colborne, when four visitors at a resort went swimming in an inland body of water, Niagara Regional Police say. Police say the 21-yearold man jumped into the water from a height of up to six metres, surfaced and was talking with his companions. But a short time later, he slipped beneath the water and did not resurface. His friends tried but were unable to find him. His body was found at 12:40 a.m. yesterday by police divers.

Smartphones track your every move Dangers of automatically collecting personal data from mobile devices will only increase as technology evolves, privacy commissioner warns There are unintended consequences of having our smartphones and other wireless devices automatically collect data on our whereabouts, warns Ontario information and privacy commissioner Ann Cavoukian. Privacy should be designed into cellphones and Wi-Fi systems to prevent the automatic collection and storage of personal data by the devices, which only continue to grow in popularity, Cavoukian said in a special report. Most people had no idea their location and other data were being recorded and compiled until Apple recently said its iPhone 4

The road to Zangabad, Afghanistan, is lined with graves and for many years was littered with mines, but for Canadian troops it is now memory lane. The place they fought hard for over so many years, a place they occupied for the first time last fall, was quietly handed over to the Americans yesterday as the withdrawal of the Canadian army from Kandahar hit full stride. Alpha Company 1st Battalion Royal 22e Regiment, which rolled into the notorious Taliban redoubt as part of NATO’s major offensive last year, pulled back to Kandahar Airfield as a first step on the long journey home. “Au revoir, Zangabad,” the radio crackled yesterday morning as the last Canadian light armoured vehicles rolled out the gate

Government wants to curb expensive wedding trends Under Taliban rule, lavish ceremonies were forbidden Some brides in Afghanistan change their outfits up to 10 times. Throw in the six-hour trips to the beauty parlours and the meals for 1,000 guests — and one wedding alone could bankrupt many Afghans. Now, the justice ministry is proposing limits on the lavish events to cut down on the pressure poor Afghans face to match the elite’s elaborate weddings. The government is specifically targeting party halls — and threatening to fine owners who flout the austerity rules. “It is breaking the back of the groom and of the

liament, locations would be barred from allowing more than 300 attendees for an engagement party and more than 500 people at a wedding, Ghaleb said. Those halls caught breaking the law would be subject to serious fines or other possible penalties. However, it remains unclear what enforcement powers authorities would have to go after the wedding halls, especially in a country where bribery remains common. “We don’t want to put pressure on the people,” the minister said. “We want to put pressure on the wedding halls.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Disaster drill held a week before tsunami apparently didn’t aid workers A new report says Japan’s tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant was so unprepared for the disaster that workers had to bring protective gear and an emergency manual from distant buildings and borrow equipment from a contractor. The report, released Saturday by plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., is based on interviews of workers and plant data.

With more and more TV content in Canada being delivered online through mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, Canadian regulators are opening hearings this week on possible measures to ensure a level field for service providers. New wireless company Public Mobile will appear before the Canadian Radiotelevision and Telecommunications Commission in Gatineau, Que., today to make its case for fairness in a field dominated by major players such as Shaw Communications Inc. and BCE, which own most of the country’s television broadcasting assets.

JAE C. HONG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

In recent years, much of Canada’s private broadcasting sector has been swallowed up by a handful of big communications companies.

“There’s a role for the regulator in ensuring small independent services are protected from predatory behaviour,� said Ian Morrison, of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Some regulatory safeguards are necessary to protect consumers, said Ken

Engelhart, Rogers’ senior vice-president of regulatory matters. Content should not be exclusive for companies that own broadcast and distribution assets because it limits consumers’ choices, he said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

LIA GRAINGER/FOR METRO

Register at metrolifepanel.ca and take the quick poll Do you take a hotdog or hamburger off the barbecue?

22% Longboard Living owner Ryan Rubin outside of his shop.

ALL ABOUT SPREADING ‘THE STOKE’ URBAN COMPASS

It’s Thursday night at Kensington Market’s Longboard Living, and that means one thing: It’s time for LIA GRAINGER some traffic surfing. It’s nearMETRO TORONTO ly 8 p.m., and one by one, lanky young men roll up and congregate outside the graffiti-covered shop that sells their preferred mode of transportation: The longboard. In a few minutes, this pack of helmeted travellers will traverse the city, ripping and weaving down quiet side streets, main thoroughfares, through traffic, until it’s too dark to see. “Longboarding is experiencing a surge in popularity,” says Ryan Rubin, the 25-year-old leader of this motley assortment of young men. He should know — he has opened two longboarding shops in Kensington Market since March. For Rubin, the love affair with this niche boarding subculture started a decade ago when he got his first longboard — essentially a longer skateboard, ideal for cruising city streets. He was instantly enamoured with the smooth ride his board provided. “It’s surf-inspired island living in your daily Toronto commute,” says Rubin. Yet he laments the lack of community around the sport: “There was no culture at that time, no encouragement.” Slowly, he has seen that change. “I’d be cruising around the Annex, and people would stop me and say, ‘Where do you get a board like that?’” says Rubin. “Eventually, I started saying, ‘You get it from me.’” What started as a word-of-mouth shop in a friend’s basement in 2008 is now two stores stocked with everything a budding longboarding enthusiast could want, from helmets and kneepads to decks from across North America. The shops are thriving, but for Rubin, it’s the sense of community surrounding the sport that is his prime motivation. It’s the reason he hosts free surf sessions four times a week: Tuesdays there are free lessons, Wednesdays is side street surfing, Thursdays is traffic surfing, and Sunday there’s a special session that’s just for the ladies. Some sessions draw close to 40 boarders. “I want to be able to share this lifestyle with as many people as possible,” says Rubin, and then throws in some longboarding lingo: “It’s all about spreading the stoke.”

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning DUBAI, United Arab Emirates.

A Saudi woman defiantly drove through the nation’s capital while others brazenly cruised by police patrols in the first forays of a campaign that hopes to ignite a road rebellion against the male-only driving rules in the ultraconservative kingdom. It was a rare grassroots challenge to the Westernbacked Saudi monarchy as it tries to ride out the Arab world’s wave of change, and a lesson in how the uprisings are taking root in different ways. In this case, the driver’s seat was turned into a powerful platform for women’s rights Friday in a country where women have almost no political voice. “We’ve seen that change is possible,” said Maha al-Qahtani. She said she drove for 45 minutes around the capital, Riyadh, with her husband in the passenger seat. “This is Saudi women saying, ‘This is our time to make a change.’” About 40 women took part in Friday’s show of defiance. No arrests or violence were reported, though al-Qahtani was later ticketed for driving without a licence.

WEIRD NEWS

Freeloaders not allowed in space The billionaire businessman behind Virgin Galactic says William Shatner, and other celebrities, shouldn’t expect any free rides into space. The space tourism enterprise is already taking reservations for flights, which could begin next year. But it’s become clear that the actor who played Captain James T. Kirk, perhaps the world’s most famous fictional spaceman, is not among the

440 people from 40 countries planning to go up. “William Shatner has said that he’s scared to go into space and it’s quite ironic really when you think of his career,” company founder Sir Richard Branson told The Canadian Press. “And, like most celebrities, he would like a freebie.” The cost of a seat is $200,000 US. The 80-year-old actor recently admitted he did not want to boldly go anywhere beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. Branson suggested the Star Trek actor is in the minority. “Most people are unlike William Shatner. I would say nine out of 10 people — if they could afford it — would love to go into space.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

All that glitters at MMVAs DARREN CALABRESE/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Co-host Selena Gomez and boyfriend Justin Bieber steal show Performers include Avril Lavigne, Bruno Mars, Simple Plan Justin Bieber shocked his shrieking fans by appearing at the MuchMusic Video Awards last night — and he didn’t have to wait long to claim a trophy for his effort. Frenzied teens lining the show’s red carpet erupted when the 17-yearold — who wasn’t scheduled to appear at the show — arrived in a nondescript SUV. Soon afterward, he was climbing the stage to accept the award for international video of the year by a Canadian, an honour he shared with Toronto rapper Drake. “I want to say thank you so much to all my fans, you guys are amazing,” said Bieber, clad in a pink blazer, white graphic T-shirt and jeans, a pink scarf hanging from his back pocket. “I love you Toronto.” Lady Gaga opened the show with a tame — by her standard, anyway — take on her latest hit The Edge of Glo-

Ryan Reynolds is the latest superhero to rule the weekend box office. Green Lantern debuted at No. 1 with $52.7 million, a fair but unremarkable opening stacked up against other comic-book adaptations. The previous weekend’s top flick, Super 8, slipped to No. 2 with $21.3 million. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It was the first of two performances expected from the eccentric Grammy winner, who made headlines with a raunchy performance at the MMVAs two years ago. She made another MMVA memory early in this show, claiming the award for international video of the year. “Thank you, I’m so, so happy,” said Gaga, who then pointed out that the video’s co-director, Laurieann Gibson, was Canadian. “Always stick by what you believe in. Always stand by your vision. We did it!” Early winners included Bieber, Vancouver dancepunk outfit You Say Party, former So You Think You Can Dance contestant Blake McGrath, Toronto rapper JDiggz and hardedged Toronto rockers Abandon All Ships. A leather-clad Fefe Dobson manoeuvred around a red convertible while she belted out Stuttering, while Far East Movement performed a medley of their club hits that ended with Snoop Dogg emerging from a coffin surrounded by — what else? — a haze of smoke.

The page where the video starring the 13-yearold singer once played now says it “is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black.” Black’s spokesman says

her team sent a takedown notice to YouTube because of a dispute over the video with Ark Music Factory, the company Black’s parents paid $4,000 to produce the song and video. Earlier this week, the firm began charging viewers $2.99 to watch the clip. Lawyers for Black and

Calgary-based director mixes actors and real-life scenarios in documentary Film offers up positive insights on today’s world

A Cynic’s Guide to

Jim Brown, left, and Gary Burns co-directed The Future is Now!

STEVE GOW

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Gary Burns is not your typical filmmaker. Having made award-winning comedies like Waydowntown and The Suburbanators, the Calgary-based director is now gaining notoriety by mixing actors

“The whole idea is you need stars, you’ve got to get stars in your movie. But [with documentaries], that just goes away; it just melts so once you don’t have to worry about that part, filmmaking seems a lot more pleasant.” FILMMAKER GARY BURNS ON FICTION VS. NON-FICTION FILMMAKING

and real-life encounters with the forthcoming documentary The Future is Now! “I thought we were going to get beat up a bit,” said Burns of the potential backlash from documentary purists. “Someone said to me ‘explain how this is a documentary’ and we’re like, ‘really?…we’re not breaking new ground here; people have been doing this for 50 years.” If you require proof of that, Burns (and co-director Jim Brown) based The Future is Now! on a 1949 French documentary called Life Begins Tomorrow. As with Burns’ movie, the idea is philosophical but the plot is simple. “It’s about a guy who’s having a hard time adjusting to the modern world,” says Burns. “A journalist takes him under her wing and introduces him to leading

minds in arts and sciences and that’s the plot I guess. For us, it’s really the idea that it’s a taking stock of now as opposed to projecting (the future).” As such, the cynic (and moviegoer) are introduced to real-life thinkers like innovative architect Shigeru Ban and artist Marlene Dumas to provide optimistic insights on today’s world. “(The film is) heavily scripted. You don’t know what the experts are going to say but you have a pretty good idea,” said Burns while admitting making a film with the sub-heading A Cynic’s Guide to Optimism was not a total breeze. “It was tough for us to take the optimist line…It’s so much easier of course to be the cynic. It’s very easy to look at something and go, ‘this sucks and I’ll show you why’ but to take the opposite steps is actually a lot harder.”

Megan Fox admits her and husband Brian Austin Green’s visit to Hawaii this month could lead to the couple renewing their vows — something she wouldn’t have considered before. “I didn’t think that I was into it until my relationship with Brian,” she tells E! News. “He’s very sensitive and very emotional. He’s a Cancer so he’s very all about feelings and relationships and he cries about everything. He’ll want to do it, so I’ll do it for him.” Fox also revealed plans for a swim with dolphins during the trip, despite Green’s reservations. “My

The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers often polls its members about what they’ve seen or done lately. Here’s what they said.

You studied children during the first two years after the divorce. Why is that period so crucial?

I studied that period mainly due to data availability — information was available only up to spring of fifth grade, although now, information up to eighth grade is available, which enables me to extend my analyses. But one of the main controversies around divorce is whether children of divorce catch up with children from intact families some time after divorce. That’s why it was very important to examine development of children of divorce after divorce occurs. What surprised you the most?

That I failed to find negative impacts of divorce in the pre-divorce stage. People tend to think that couples go through intense marital conflict before they decide to divorce — otherwise why choose to divorce? And it’s widely accepted that children under parents’ marital discord experience devel-

I found that children of divorce lagged behind children from intact families in the growth of interpersonal social skills in the during-divorce stage. Why, I can only speculate. One possibility is that children of divorce go through

emotional problems, which is consistent with my finding that children of divorce experienced problems in internalizing their problem behaviours. Another reason may be related to stigma attached to parental divorce, so that children of divorce would not want others to know their own situations, which may lead to less frequent interactions with others. It should also be added that these behaviours were reported by teachers. Do you have any good news

children?

I found that development of children of divorce did not worsen in the post-divorce stage even though they did not catch up with children from intact families. In other words, children of divorce developed as similarly as children from intact families in the post-divorce stage.

This is really a hard question to answer from my study. One very important finding in my study is that children from intact families suffer more compared to children of divorce if the former children were in families plagued by marital conflicts. In this case, we can predict positive effects of divorce for those children. But remember, I just examined children two years after divorce. I cannot at all predict how children of divorce develop until they become adults.

Divorce is so common these days. Do you think, eventually, anti-social behaviour and low math scores will be the norm for most kids? In other words, will we have to redefine what we expect from

Stanley Ann Dunham met Barack Obama Sr. in a Russian-language class in Hawaii. They married a year later, in 1961, but divorced in 1964, after he moved on to Harvard. They had one son: Barack Jr. He did drugs in high school but otherwise turned out all right.

Her divorced parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, appear in the media frequently to discuss their fractured family, blaming their daughter’s struggles on their breakup. The in-andout-of-rehab actress is currently under house arrest after a shoplifting conviction.

The 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, who divorced in 2000, became a successful television and film actress (The House Bunny and 90210). She is also notable for surviving her new stepfather: Ashton Kutcher.

After his parents split in 1992, the Olympian lived with his mom and remains close. “The person I love the most is sitting in the front row — my mom — for everything she’s done,” he said at the Beijing Olympics. Meanwhile, he and he dad don’t talk much.

Turning others on to offsetting Canadian company helping save African lives with a CO2 cuts program

Carbon data

GREEN@METRONEWS.CA

Carbon offsets — money paid by eco-conscious companies for carbon emissions they have not been able to reduce — are now being used to save lives in the developing world. Offsetters, a Vancouverbased provider of carbonmanagement solutions, has become the first Canadian company involved in offering a high-quality cookstove program in Africa. “The big appeal of these projects is that the carbon benefits are very clear,” says James Tansey, CEO of Offsetters. “The side benefits of doing this are, in some ways, even more important.” The new stoves are

method, installing the new stoves will be like removing 4,000 cars from the world’s roads. The potential health benefits are startling. “Indoor air quality is one of the largest causes of child mortality — more significant than malaria,” Tansey notes. “So this proj-

ect leads not only to reductions, but also very significant improvements in health and well-being.” This is green policy at its best. A world-wide effort to reduce CO2 emissions in the air — through the purchase of carbon offsets — leads directly to safer, longer lives in Africa.

“For these kinds of projects, companies that are reducing their emissions within their operations put a price on carbon,” explains Tansey. “They’re paying maybe $20 a ton for the carbon emissions they can’t reduce. That money is then pooled, and used to subsidize the cost of the cookstoves.” Offsets come in two kinds: a voluntary market, and one demanded by ecofriendly legislation. “The global market is around $113-million in voluntary transactions. The regulated market, which is also something we work in — particularly in Europe — is hundreds of millions of dollars in transactions.” For more information, visit offsetters.ca.

When â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hey budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; turns into â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hey bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A promotion can be painful when the lucky employee loses friends over the switch DREW HINSHAW

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say who to feel sorrier for: the coworker who misses out on a big promotion, or the unlucky knave who gets it. Officemates who watch their old friend move up a floor often lose hope, career counsellors note â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as if their career is dogpaddling in place. But the newly-crowned boss? They lose friendships, embark on a life of solitary lunches without that exhilarating sprit of workplace camaraderie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most everyone does it wrong, and it becomes a total disaster,â&#x20AC;? executive coach Cynthia Shapiro says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You lose all your friends. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a serious issue and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very common.â&#x20AC;? But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how to handle that transition when one workplace pauper becomes the new company prince. Going from Worker to Boss

New boss task number one, Shapiro says, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to strongarm your old equals into respecting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or worse, fearing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to make them comfortable with the uneasy arrangement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come in and tell them what to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not above them,â&#x20AC;? she cautions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing you want to do is ask â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What can I do for you? What can be done better? What can I do to make your work better?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Make sure they know you advocating for them.â&#x20AC;? That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean, however, that you should get too chummy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be on either end of the spectrum,â&#x20AC;? says Meredith Haberfeld, founder of the Institute for Coaching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting drunk after work with who used to be your peers or start acting like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re above them. Be yourself.â&#x20AC;? And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t downplay your promotion, either, she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fake humility is thin veneer, and people can see right through it.â&#x20AC;?

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how to handle it ISTOCK

When Your Friend Becomes the Boss

Watching an old pal become your overseer can boil up a pot of resentments, Shapiro notes, but it really shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your friend is now the person in charge of whether you get a raise, what your job security is like,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great place to be.â&#x20AC;? Make sure you express that, too, she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You definitely always want to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy for you,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; just so they know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not feeling threatened,â&#x20AC;? she states. And if you are feeling threatened? Grow up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep your eye on the prize,â&#x20AC;? Haberfeld says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give yourself one weekend to go have a drink, be pissed off, talk to your family, and then wrap it up in a bow and leave it alone.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ne to climb the corporate ladder, but just make sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall down.

are feeling a little bit of entitlement,â&#x20AC;? said Robert Orndorff, associate director of Career Services at Pennsylvania State University. Each studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation is different, of course, and the first thing career counsellors do when a student comes in with a job offer is to ask a lot of questions, Orndorff said. How badly does the student really want this position? Does it match their values? Is it something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to do? Are there any other job prospects? Are they willing to move back in with mom and dad if this offer falls through? How much risk is the student willing to take? As for negotiations, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be a lot of room if there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of experience,â&#x20AC;? cautioned Jack Chapman, author of Negotiating Your Salary: How to Make $1,000 a Minute (Mount Vernon Press). But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try, depending on how

much risk you can tolerate. Those willing to take a risk often take a hard line: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like the job, but I need more money. The danger is that the employer can just turn to other candidates, Orndorff said. At Penn State, he said, students generally are advised to pursue a softer approach, telling the employer they intend to take the job but would like to be paid more, and then outlining the reasons. Be specific, he advised. A third option is for students to ask a potential employer if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be willing to reconsider salary after six months or so. John Challenger, CEO of the outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas, calls that a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very reasonable approach.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get the job, go to work and prove yourself,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then ask for a raise because of your track record.â&#x20AC;?

Meet the man with the iron wardrobe Metro chats with Wang Kang, a 25-year-old whose slightly unorthodox office attire is causing quite the stir An ordinary office day may be boring, but it might cheer you up when you find out that your colleague is a superhero. A telecoms company employee, Wang Kang stunned his office colleagues and boss in Shanghai, China, when he strutted into the office in his homemade Iron Man suit on June 3. Wang, age 25, told Metro that his Iron Man MK 1 suit is made of high-density foam, wires and tubes and then painted the colour of aged iron. It took three months and 3,000 yuan ($465) to finish this 50 kg armor costume. What inspired you to make this Iron Man suit? I have

been a crazy fan since the first Iron Man film was released in 2008, and I like doing handmade stuff. I thought it would be so cool if I could make Iron Man armor so simply. Maybe I just wanted to be cool at the beginning. But it’s much cooler than I thought after I finished it. How did you feel when you walked into the office like that? I felt so cool and

excited when I walked into the office with this Iron Man suit on, and some of my colleagues didn’t recognize me and even got scared of me. It was great fun that people saw me as

if I was a real superhero. Then I was so happy that everyone praised my effort, even my boss complimented me.

years getting used to making things with my hands with the goal of making this suit. But it was a boring and lonely thing to do, because everyday when I fin-

ished work, I would have to start working on the costume. It was a big challenge on my perseverance. There was one time I got sick, because the painting

material was toxic. Do you plan to make profit out of this Iron Man suit? How much would you sell it?

I just do it for fun not for

profit. I think it would be very expensive because the making process was so complicated and time-consuming. METRO

Has this Iron Man suit changed your life? I never

thought I could be famous because of it, now I have become very busy replying to all kinds of emails and messages from my own fans, which I enjoy. In fact many women want to know me and be my girlfriend, because they think I am a creative and interesting guy. And the other day, I received an email from The Embassy VFX Team, the visual effects company that created the Mk 1 sequence for Iron Man film. They think I am great to make such a suit, that was just an incredible experience. How long does it take to put this suit on? Is it easy to move in this suit? With

someone's help, it takes about four or five minutes to put it on. It has a skeleton-like frame inside, so it is not so heavy to move. I can’t dance but I can go to the toilet by myself with this suit on. What is the hardest part during your making process?

Before this suit, I made lots of models of Iron Man. Actually I spent the last three

Major domination by McIlroy NICK WASS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Irishman erases Masters collapse, wins U.S. Open in record fashion Every time Rory McIlroy lined up a shot yesterday, there was some sort of record on the line, some kind of history to be made. That was this year’s U.S. Open version of suspense. There was never any doubt that the kid from Northern Ireland was going to win it. In complete control of his emotions and his game, McIlroy never slipped. He won his first major championship by shooting a 2-under 69 at Congressional and closed his four-day onslaught at 16-under 268, eight shots ahead of Jason Day and four shots better than the U.S. Open scoring record formerly held by four players, including two named Woods and Nicklaus. After the final tap-in, Gerry McIlroy met his son as he walked off the green. “Happy Father’s Day,” the new champion said. Happy Father’s Day, indeed. All week, McIlroy’s performance was compared to Tiger Woods’ 15-shot blowout at Pebble Beach in 2000. “I was trying to go out there today and emulate him in some way,” McIlroy said. “I played great for four days and I couldn’t be happier.” The win comes two months after a collapse so thorough, some wondered if McIlroy could recover. He took a four-shot lead into the final day of the Masters, but after hitting his 10th

tee shot near a cabin on the grounds of Augusta National, he melted down, shot 80 and finished 15th. His shot on the 10th hole yesterday wasn’t comparable. On the 214-yard par-3, a downhill shot over water, McIlroy knocked the ball above the hole, then watched as it stopped for a split second and started spinning backward before stopping an inch or two from the hole. He tapped in for a birdie that got him to 17-under par at a tournament that had never seen a score lower than 12 under before Friday. “That was the point in the round that I really felt it was mine to lose,” McIlroy said. McIlroy now owns the scoring records for 36, 54 and 72 holes at the toughest test in golf and he became only the third player to break 70 in all four rounds of the U.S. Open.

Edmonton’s Paula Findlay edged Helen Jenkins by four seconds to win the triathlon world series event in Kitzbuehel, Austria, yesterday and extend her lead at the top of the overall standings. Findlay finished in 2:05:52. “I’m thrilled again. Wow, that was a real hard race. I was running maximum the

whole way,” she said. Findlay had emerged from the swim more than a minute down on the leaders, Jenkins and Sarah Haskins. She caught Jenkins at the end of the fourth bike leg. Findlay leads the world series with 2,400 points. The win is her fifth in six races over the last 11 months. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Reds end scoreless streak against Blue Jays Bruins captain Zdeno Chara lifts the Stanley Cup at Fenway Park yesterday.

Miguel Cairo’s two-run blast good enough for win against Toronto Bronson Arroyo reverses fortunes against Jays for eight strong innings JOE ROBBINS/GETTY IMAGES

Bruins feted at Fenway The Boston Red Sox honoured the Stanley Cup champion Bruins with a 15-minute on-field ceremony before yesterday’s baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Members of the Bruins, who captured the cup with a Game 7 win over Vancouver Wednesday, rode in on four Duck Boats. As they entered, Bruins players, dressed in their black jerseys, threw soft baseballs and pucks to the fans in Fenway Park, many of whom wore Bruins jerseys. Red Sox employees waved Bruins flags in a ring around the upper seating park. When they finished the loop on the boats, the players got off and — led by captain Zdeno Chara carrying the cup — walked into the infield for a ceremonial first pitch to members of the Red Sox. Chara left the cup on the pitcher’s rubber during the ceremonial pitch before picking it up and raising it high above his head as the players left the field. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jay Bruce steals second base ahead of the tag by Aaron Hill at Great American Ball Park yesterday in Cincinnati.

Miguel Cairo hit a tworun homer in the sixth off Carlos Villanueva, stopping Cincinnati’s streak of 16 scoreless innings, and the Reds got their first win over an American League team this season, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 yesterday. The Reds had dropped their previous five interleague games against Cleveland and Toronto. Bronson Arroyo (6-6) ended his streak of dismal days against the Blue Jays. The right-hander gave up

MILWAUKEE MILE

Franchitti races to third win of season Dario Franchitti took over the lead when Helio Castroneves had a tire problem, then held on to win the IndyCar Series race at the Milwaukee Mile yesterday. It was the third victory of the season for

Four men primed and ready at Wimbledon Having won four of the past five Grand Slam tournaments and 10 in all, Rafael Nadal was asked on the eve of Wimbledon about quickly closing in on Roger Federer’s record of 16. Nadal cut in to clarify. “Very close? No. I am very far,” Nadal said yesterday. “Six is a lot.” Perhaps. Still, the 25year-old Spaniard is looking more and more like someone who will be able to challenge, if not surpass, whatever Federer’s final tally is. As long as a couple of other guys don’t get in the way, that is. For years, Federer and Nadal were the men to beat at major tournaments. These days, they’re joined at what is a competitive and compelling top of the game by a pair of 24-yearolds, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. That Big Four filled out the semifinals at the French Open two weeks ago, and most everyone expects them to be the final four standing in a fortnight’s time at Wimbledon, where play begins today with Nadal as the defending champion. “That’s maybe something that’s a bit different than maybe in the past, where maybe one of the top four guys wouldn’t feel so comfortable on grass,” said Federer, a sixtime winner at Wimbledon. “But this year, it seems like all of us are, which is a good thing.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Franchitti, who stayed out of trouble as two fellow contenders fell by the wayside. Tony Kanaan crashed with 31 laps to go, and Castroneves gave up the lead when he had to make a late extra pit stop to change a tire that was going flat. Castroneves fell all the way to ninth place. Toronto rookie James Hinchcliffe was sixth, while fellow Canadian Alex Tagliani of Lachenaie, Que., finished 18th. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
