TTC looks to calm LRT fears

First shaft for Eglinton tunnel to begin this summer Four borers may be needed St. Clair and the Georgetown GO expansion have taught the TTC and province some tough lessons about keeping the neighbours happy when homes and businesses are being disrupted by the traffic, noise, vibration and dust of big transit-construction projects. Even before transit authorities put shovels in the ground on the Eglinton light rail line, they opened the first of several community liaison offices yesterday that will respond to the concerns of residents and businesses who will bear the brunt of the $8.2-billion, decade-long construction. Transit officials are anxious to avoid the resistance they encountered during the construction of the St. Clair streetcar right-of-way

TTC driver honoured for aiding theft victim PHOEBE HO/FOR METRO

TTC driver Sherry Newton has been named the community watcher of the year, making it the fifth year an employee of the TTC Birchmount division has won the award since its inception. “This is the 18th award and this office has won it for five years out of the 18. Thats a pretty high percentage,” said Doug Prentice, a TTC administrative staff member. “It’s a very proud

moment for our office.” Newton was recognized yesterday for coming to the aid of a robbery victim last year. She was driving her usual shift on New Year’s Day in the evening when she witnessed the victim being robbed by two other girls. “I stopped to see if everything was OK, and I guess I distracted them enough for her to get away from them

and into my bus,” she said. “The cop said they could’ve either stabbed her, beaten her up or she could’ve froze to death.” Each year, 12 employees are nominated for the TTC Community Watch Award. The program was launched in October 1992 in an effort to enhance safety and encourage employees to be vigilant while on duty. PHOEBE HO/FOR METRO

‘I have no regret for what I did’ RENE JOHNSTON/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Activist who encouraged people to tear down G20 security fence receives suspended sentence Activist Jaggi Singh, who urged protesters to tear down a security fence at Toronto’s G20 summit, was unrepentant yesterday morning after a judge gave him a suspended sentence. “I have no regret for what I said,” Singh told reporters outside Old City Hall, after walking down the courthouse steps to raucous applause from dozens of supporters. Singh, a well-known anti-globalization organizer from Montreal, pleaded guilty in late April to counselling mischief over $5,000 for encouraging people to tear down the security fence during last June’s summit. Justice Robert Bigelow said yesterday morning that an appropriate sentence would have been incarceration for a period of 60 to 90 days. The judge gave Singh credit of 69 days for the six days he spent in pre-trial custody and the 11 months

spent under restrictive bail conditions, which included not participating in demonstrations. Further incarceration is not warranted, Bigelow told a packed courtroom, which was primarily filled with Singh’s supporters. The judge also ordered that Singh be placed on probation for 12 months, perform 75 hours of community service and not participate in unlawful protests or demonstrations. The prosecution had entered Singh’s Twitter feed, YouTube videos he posted and a number of media interviews as evidence that he openly encouraged others to commit violence by trying to tear down the fence and confront police.

Gardiner concrete may continue to fall HENRY STANCU/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Despite ongoing maintenance, there’s no guarantee that pieces of the Gardiner Expressway won’t continue to fall on Lake Shore Boulevard after a 4.5-kilogram chunk slammed onto a guardrail Monday. “Over time it will deteriorate, so our job is to be vigilant in doing inspections

concrete covering the rebar. As the (steel) rebar corrodes, it pops off the cover,” Laidlaw said. “There’s no way to guarantee (that random pieces of concrete won’t fall) and checking it regularly is the best way to prevent it happening.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Italian youth, it’s time to get Inspired SIMON HAYTER/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

This weekend, ET Canada co-host Rick Campanelli and other prominent Italian-Canadians will share their stories of success and struggle as part of an event aimed at inspiring Italian youth. Called Inspire 2011, it was organized as part of this month’s celebration of Italian heritage in the GTA and will feature five speakers who will share their experiences, provide guidance and take questions from youth. The speaker panel includes actor Enrico Colantoni, Juno Award-winning singer Ivana Santilli, Globalive and WIND mobile chair Anthony Lacav-

era, and Liberty Entertainment Group president and CEO Nick Di Donato. Luciano Volpe, the event’s founder, believes these experience-based talks can engage Canadian-Italian youth and teach them how to succeed in fields like art, entertainment and business. “I find that kids respond more to experience and mistakes and how obstacles were overcome versus teaching from slides,” said Volpe, who teaches business part time at York University and the University of Toronto. The initiative is geared toward Italian-Canadians aged 18 to 25, but the event is open to everyone and Volpe said he hopes it succeeds in inspiring

Ford criticized for rejecting nurses

Dramatic. Display

The mayor says he was concerned the city would have to pay if provincial funding for the two nurses ended CARLOS OSORIO/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mayor Rob Ford has rejected the province’s offer to hire two public health nurses for Toronto at no cost to the city, drawing rebukes from both the provincial health minister and a loyal council ally. One of the nurses would have worked with new immigrants on disease prevention, the other in a poor neighbourhood to promote health services, said Coun. John Filion, chair of the health board. In a statement, Health Minister Deb Matthews said Toronto is to date the only one of Ontario’s 36 health units to reject the nurses. “I am very disappointed in the city’s decision and I strongly encourage

Deb Matthews

Mayor Ford to reconsider,” Matthews said. Council’s budget committee had recommended that the city accommodate the nurses by increasing the health

budget by $170,000, all of which would come from the province. At Monday’s executive committee meeting, Ford asked how the city would pay for the nurses “on an ongoing basis.” Told the provincial funding would continue on an ongoing basis, Ford said only, “I just want to defer this indefinitely, then.” A majority of the handpicked committee voted with him. But in a rare display of disharmony, budget committee chair Mike Del Grande, public works chair Denzil MinnanWong, and planning chair Peter Milczyn opposed. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mounties probe $50M G8 payout

Winnipeg. A proud day

Tony Clement’s riding got gazebos, parks, toilets But did Harper government misappropriate funds? The RCMP is looking into allegations that the Harper government misappropriated funds in order to lavish $50 million on a cabinet minister’s riding prior to last year’s G8 summit. The probe comes on the heels of an auditor general’s report that concluded the government “did not clearly or transparently” explain how the money was going to be spent when it sought Parliament’s approval for a G8 legacy fund for Tony Clement’s riding. The Mounties’ involvement was prompted by a complaint from former Liberal MP Marlene Jen-

Fantastic fund? The legacy fund was supposed to help Tony Clement’s Parry SoundMuskoka riding prepare for hosting the G8 summit last June. It was spent on 32 projects, including gazebos, parks, public toilets and other beautification projects, many of which were hours away from the summit site in Huntsville.

nings. She was interviewed for an hour last week by three RCMP officers. “My sense is that they’re taking it very seriously,” Jennings said yesterday.

An RCMP spokesperson said the force is evaluating the information before it decides whether to launch a formal investigation. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird shrugged the whole matter off as “a public relations stunt” by a defeated Liberal. Jennings lost her Montreal seat in the May 2 election. Baird repeatedly reminded the House of Commons yesterday that John Wiersema, the acting auditor general, said there was no evidence the government was trying to deliberately mislead Parliament.

Beautiful dating pool shrinks with Shrek Dating site says virus was likely planted internally

Red cars are more expensive to insure than any other colour My loyalty discount offsets any savings I would get by changing insurance companies Higher rates mean more coverage No fault insurance means ‘It’s not my fault’

While true beauty may be on the inside, dating website Beautiful People has its eye on what’s only skin deep. The site has just given 30,000 less than aesthetically blessed applicants the boot after its exacting physical standards were lowered in a hack attack, dubbed the “Shrek� virus. Users are granted access to the appearance-based dating site based on votes from the Beautiful People

community, said Greg Hodge, the site’s managing director. Prospective users “must be voted in by members of the opposite sex� over a 48hour period, with added weight given to votes from the same nation and age group as the applicant, since, said Hodge, perceptions of beauty vary. “What’s beautiful in Japan is not the same as in Canada.� In mid-May, a virus was planted on the site, bring-

The virus was named Shrek after the film ogre who, while ugly on the outside, stands as a symbol for inner beauty and charm.

Songwriter’s son mulling plea deal in murder case A songwriter’s son charged with killing his swimsuitdesigner girlfriend in a posh New York hotel may be considering a plea deal. The judge mentioned ongoing “plea discussions� during Nicholas Brooks’ brief court appearance yesterday. His lawyers and prosecutors declined to comment on the discussions. The 25-year-old Brooks has pleaded not guilty to murder. He is due back in court Sept. 19. Sylvie Cachay was found dead in an overflowing bathtub at the Soho House Dec. 9, hours after she and Brooks checked in. Brooks’ late father was Joseph Brooks, best known for penning the Academy Award-winning ballad You Light Up My Life. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Listen here, pilgrim Vatican lends iPods to followers to reduce tour noise in its basilicas Hopes to attract younger visitors, too The Vatican is betting an iPod beats “Shush!” in lowering the tour guide noise level in basilicas. It will even lend you one for free to try to prove its point. From a tiny booth in the back of St. John in Lateran, the Holy See’s pilgrim agency has been quietly asking tourists if they want to tour Rome’s oldest basil-

ica with an iPod in hand loaded with an app specially designed to access the attraction’s art, architecture and Christian history. It’s a bid to cut down on the noise as well as to raise appeal to the young, not your typical pilgrim, the Rev. Caesar Atuire, CEO of the pilgrim agency, said yesterday. “It is designed to appeal

to a wider audience than the usual churchgoer,” Atuire told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from the Holy Land. The Vatican will formally unveil the experiment today. But a visit yesterday found curious tourists exploring the cavernous basilica with specially adapted iPods in hand.

Shoppers put away wallets Canadian retail sales eked out a disappointing 0.3 per cent gain in April in a further indication that record levels of consumer debt is dampening the domestic economy. The gain to $37.4 billion in sales was below consensus and comes off a downwardly revised March, when sales were recalculated to show a 0.1 per cent slip. Analysts noted the consumer sector was a drag in the first quarter of the

year, and April’s data suggests households aren’t in any mood, or in a financial position, to add much of a punch to the economy in the second quarter either. The mild positive was that in volume terms, sales increased 0.2 per cent, although they are still on track to decline from the

first quarter because of the weak handoff. And Alberta, where the economy is strong due to high oil prices, posted a large 1.6 per cent increase in sales with widespread gains across store types. Analysts said higher gas prices and weather were likely contributors to the

soft sales in most regions. The big contributors to growth in April were autos, up 1.7 per cent, gas stations, 0.5 per cent, and furniture and home furnishing stores, up 3.2 per cent. But building material and garden equipment and supplies dealers registered a large 2.8 per cent decline, partly weather related, electronics and appliance stores fell 1.2 per cent, and general merchandise stores dropped 0.3 per cent.

OCEANS ARE OVERRATED ANYWAY JUST SAYIN’ ... PAUL SULLIVAN METRO

So you wake up, get out of bed, drag a comb across your head. You open your iPad and the first thing that hits you is: “Mass extinction threatens

oceans.” You spill your coffee in your lap and read a little more: “Multiple ocean stresses threaten globally significant marine extinction.” This from an international meeting of marine scientists who say if things keep going the way they are we will suffer the kind of mass extinction that did in the dinosaurs in millions of years ago. The scientists tick off the “multiple oceans stresses”: Global warming, acidification, lack of oxygen, pollution and overfishing. The scientists call for “urgent and unequivocal action” or we’re done for. How do you deal with this stuff ? Put down your toast and call 911? “Hello? The oceans are threatened with mass extinction? Can you come right away? The coral “Some people reefs are already starting to die! Hurry!” just take their That’s the trouble with heads and bury global warming. It’s just them at the too big to get your head around. Some people just beach. Global take their heads and bury warming? What them at the beach. Global global warming?” warming? What global warming? This is merely natural climate fluctuation. Except all these scientists say it isn’t. “In fact,” they say, this is “unprecedented in the Earth’s history because of the high rate and speed of change.” Scientists? What do they know? How about the real experts, the dissenting journalists and oil company executives — what are they saying? The guy at climate-resistance.org isn’t worried. He dismisses the whole thing as The Fishy, Wishy-Washy report: “Just a couple of dozen eco-warriors in a single room, chatting about their fears.” Well, not to worry. The guy at the climate-resistance website says to chill out. So here we sit, amidst the crumbs, trying to figure out if these greybeards are really just little boys crying wolf, or a bunch of chickens freaked out about the marine equivalent of a falling sky. It’s the same thing on the sky-is-falling front. I mean, greenhouse gases? Come on! Just a bunch of (bad) scientists trying to whip us into a frenzy in order to secure funding. Although I’m not quite sure how funding follows frenzy. The government is no help. It keeps getting the Fossil Award for its well-known addiction to the tar sands and fracking — which is as dirty as it sounds. Oh, well. A couple of nice summer days and all this oceans-dying stuff will be behind us. After all, we have to get ready for Kate and Wills’ state visit. I wonder what she’ll wear. How do you think she’ll look in a biohazard suit?

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning LE BOURGET, France. The plane making one of the biggest splashes at the Paris Air Show carries a grand total of one person and is often delayed because there’s too much wind or too little sun. Andre Borschberg pilots the Solar Impulse, a prototype aircraft powered exclusively by sunlight. While that has put him into the record books as the first pilot to fly 24 hours in an entirely solar-powered plane, it also causes aggravations that travellers anywhere could relate to. Like the time it took him 16 hours to fly to Paris from Brussels — five hours to cover the distance and another 11 hours circling over the airport, waiting for wind conditions to settle down enough for him to land. The plane has a slim dragonfly fuselage with a cockpit that fits just one pilot. Its enormous wing is entirely covered with 10,000 energy-capturing solar cells similar to the ones used in some homes, which generate about 40 horsepower, “the same as a small motor scooter,” Borschberg said.

WEIRD NEWS

He should have taken the left at Albuquerque He’s healthy, well-fed and far from home. And he’s quickly become the most popular attraction on a New Zealand beach. If only he could talk. A young penguin apparently took a wrong turn while swimming near Antarctica and endured a 3,200-kilometre journey to New Zealand, the first time in 44 years that one of the creatures has been sighted there in the wild.

Christine Wilton was walking her dog Monday when she discovered the black-and-white bird. “It was out of this world to see it,” she said. “Like someone just dropped it from the sky.” Wilton said the scene on Peka Peka Beach reminded her of the 2006 movie Happy Feet, in which a young penguin finds himself stranded far from home. The bird “was totally in the wrong place,” she said. Estimated to be about 10 months old and 80 centimetres tall, the Emperor penguin was probably born during the last Antarctic winter and may have been searching for squid and krill when it got lost, experts said.

Getting a little help from her friends Girl-Power: Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Nicole Kidman give Selena Gomez boost in new projects The new record — which has three songs co-penned by Gomez — is out next week Katy Perry and Britney Spears appear on a CD together but it's not the latest Now compilation. Rather, the pop singers have written songs on Selena Gomez & the Scene’s new album, When the Sun Goes Down. “I did have a lot of artists that I was very lucky enough to have songs written by and it’s a good, uplifting album,” Gomez said of her third CD. “It’s really fun and very dance-y and I hope people like it.” Spears co-wrote the dance song Whiplash, while Perry co-penned That’s More Like It. Singer Priscilla Renea — who cowrote Rihanna’s California King Bed and Cheryl Cole’s Promise This — co-penned three songs on Gomez’s album, including the lead single and Top 40 hit Who Says. And the disc has a writing credit and guest appearance from British singer Pixie Lott. “I think it’s a powerful CD,” Gomez said in a recent interview. The 18-year-old’s first two albums have reached gold status. The new record — which has three

on a real event, although a follow-up sequence showing an unbalanced Corrigan attempting to run down his students was pure fiction. Due to excessive violence the movie was banned in several countries but is of interest to Canadian audiences for a performance by Hamilton, Ont. punk band Teenage Head. One bad movie teacher actually redeems himself. When we first meet Fast Times at Ridgemont Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mr. Hand (Ray Walston) heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prone to saying things like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is this fascination with truancy?â&#x20AC;? to his students, but near the end of the movie he softens and even pulls out all the stops to help his worst student, Spicoli (Sean Penn), graduate. Ray Walston, so memorable as the uptight Mr. Hand, almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the part, however. It was originally offered to Munsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s star Fred Gwynne who declined over objections to the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual content.

No fun in this dysfunctional

O’Neal insists new TV show is not a ‘vanity project’ KRIS CONNOR/GETTY IMAGES

Actress Tatum O’Neal insists her new reality series about her rocky relationship with her movie-star father is not a “vanity project.” Rather, she says, Ryan & Tatum: The O’Neals is intended to help people. “My whole reason for doing it is that people (will) learn from it. That’s why I put it on TV,” O’Neal said in a recent telephone interview from New York City. “I’ve never seen anything in television ... that speaks to (the) very real dynamic of dysfunction, which I have with my dad. I think we did a very good job of being ourselves and showing the dysfunction that we really live with and I think people, just being able to see that, will get a lot out of it, good or bad.” Dysfunction may seem like an understatement when it comes to the relationship of Tatum and Ryan O’Neal. The pair became inextricably linked in the public eye when they co-starred in 1973’s Paper

In the debut episode, airing Friday on OWN, Tatum says her mother struggled with addiction. Her father, she charges, abandoned her when he became involved with actress Farrah Fawcett. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bewitching Salem

AP PHOTO/MICHAEL DWYER

Witchery and covens aside, there’s a lot more to this thriving community than haunted happenings AP PHOTO/MICHAEL DWYER

Salem — the very name conjures witches. Witches hanged in the notorious trials of 1692, witch houses and covens, a Salem Witch Museum and the Witch Dungeon Museum. This city of 41,000 souls is so closely identified with its witch history that flying witch logos adorn police cars and firefighter uniforms — and Salem High School’s mascot is, shockingly, a witch. A thriving, modern witch community practises witchcraft and even has a new public relations outfit, the Witches Education Bureau. Tourists flock to the Salem Common during the town’s “Haunted Happenings,” a monthlong celebration of Halloween. In the off-season in this historic Massachusetts seaport, warlock Christian

At a nearby mall, a ghoul dressed in black, his face painted white with fake blood around his mouth, stands near a black coffin, spooking customers for a kitschy thrill near a house of horrors. These are typical tourist encounters in this historic Massachusetts seaport. But Salem leaders want visitors to know that the city offers a whole lot more, and they’ve rebranded to promote such generic attractions as dining, the Peabody Essex Museum and the Salem Arts Festival, which recently featured “Buckaroo Bonsai” and bellydancing.

All about Salem

Salem, one of early America’s most significant seaports, was founded in 1626 by a group of fishermen from Cape Ann. Its name is derived from the Hebrew word for peace, “Shalom.” During the American Revolution, Salem became the centre for privateering, a form of official piracy that authorized captains of private ships to seize British merchant vessels and confiscate valuables. Its maritime dominance in the 1800s also helped Salem produce America’s first millionaires and become one of the nation’s wealthiest cities per capita.

Max your card with Dita in L.A. The hot shops! The Spare Room GETTY IMAGES

When shopping, perhaps pick up her book, Dita: Stripteese.

Louboutins!

Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese gives us her guide to the best shopping, brunch and beauty spots in her hometown of Los Angeles DITA VON TEESE FOR METRO

Where would you start?

Once in a while I like to have brunch somewhere. I like the oatmeal frittata at Hugo’s on Santa Monica (hugosrestaurant.com) or the Beverly Hills Hotel brunch for a particularly extravagant morning (beverlyhillshotel.com). Where’s your first shop?

The only time I get out of bed in the morning to shop is on Sundays, for the various antique flea markets. There is one near-

ly every weekend here in L.A. There’s the Rose Bowl, which I think everyone knows, but my favourite is at the Long Beach Veteran’s Stadium once a month (longbeachantiquemarket.com). What’s on the lunch menu?

I love Mexican food and I love vegan/raw food. Those are two of the things I miss most about spending so much time in Paris, so when I am in L.A., I head for my favourite places like Alegria (alegriaonsunset.com) or Cru (crusilverlake.com), both in Sunset Junction.

How would you spend the afternoon?

I love doing the grocery shopping! Whole Foods (wholefoodsmarket.com) or Bristol Farms (bristolfarms.com) are always the most extravagant for unique products to try. I love to cook, so I like to do my own shopping too. Who offers the best beauty treatments?

In L.A., I love the traditional Korean spas. There are many fabulous ones, but I go to the ones that are open 24 hours and ... and haven’t been commercial-

Florida has everything except you.

ized too much yet. I like the ones that are only Korean women, with Korean soap operas on all night. I’m not naming my favourite because it’s my secret spot! Where should we stop for post-shopping cocktails?

The Spare Room is a very cool bar in L.A. where you can order lovely cocktails. We even developed my new twist on the Margarita, the MargaDita, which is a traditional classic margarita with Cointreau, fresh lime juice and tequila (thompsonhotels.com).

For fabulous shoes

Great fashion shops

I always shop at Christian Louboutin. Not only is he one of my best friends, he custom-designs all my shoes for my burlesque shows. It’s very rare that I buy any other brand of shoes ... well, I buy sensible flats and things like that sometimes from other designers, because when I get together with Christian, neither of us thinks about ‘sensible’ shoes, it's all about perilous heights and extravagance! (christianlouboutin.com)

I like to check out what's at Dior, McQueen, Nanette Lepore, Marc Jacobs and Catherine Maladrino. Best for hot lingerie

There’s a lovely lingerie store called Faire Frou Frou that carries glamour-girl worthy brands like Damaris and Fifi Chachnil... and soon my new lingerie brand too! I think it’s the best store in Los Angeles for gorgeous, fine-quality, wearable lingerie fairefroufrou.com).

Hunting for vintage fashion

I shop at The Way We Wore and Golyester, which are both on La Brea. My greatest find? Hard to say ... I’ve gotten a lot of my red-carpet looks from The Way we Wore! But the best vintage shopping happens twice a year and it’s called the Vintage Expo (vintageexpo.com). I hate when I miss it due to my travel schedule. It’s devastating! It’s an event that has dealers from all over the country selling the best quality vintage. The first time I ever went I bought a beautiful 1930s hat, which is so beautiful and unique that it is now a part of the V&A Museum’s travelling collection of hats.

Blessed with lavish scenery and luscious wines, the Napa Valley is the kind of place you could spend days exploring. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compact enough that even if you only have an afternoon, you can still get a taste of wine country. Located about an hour's drive northeast of San Francisco, the valley starts south of Napa and stretches about 50 kilometres north to Calistoga. To get here from San Francisco, drive north on the Golden Gate Bridge and then take the Highway 37 exit going east to Highway 121/12, following the signs to Napa. From the east San Francisco Bay, take I-80 east to the Napa exit (Highway 37 east) and then go north on Highway 29. There are two main routes through the valley. Highway 29 is a straight shot from Napa to Calistoga and hits all the big names such as Opus One and Francis Ford Coppolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rubicon Estate. But it can get awfully crowded in summer. The other route is the Silverado Trail, which avoids the towns, is quieter and has breathtaking views. The easiest way to pick up the trail is to take Highway 29 to the Trancas

The words â&#x20AC;&#x153;tourist meccaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Manchesterâ&#x20AC;? arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually used in the same sentence, but this old school town is becoming more and more of a hip tourist draw, and a fun alternative to overcrowded, overpriced London. In fact, the number of visitors has been rising at an alarming rate. After arriving in this former industrial town, it was almost like walking into an

Just a stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw from Piccadilly, I found myself downing a few expensive drinks at probably the trendiest bar Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been in: Cinnibar. This glamorous venue features ultra-modern decor mixed with Asian antiquities. Patrons sip their martinis and speak in that one-of-akind â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mancunianâ&#x20AC;? accent. When it comes right down to it, Manchester is still probably best known for one thing, and that is football, or soccer, as we North Americans like to call it. No true fan would miss a tour of the holy land known as Old Trafford Stadium. For a city thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been given a bad rap for a long time, Old Manchester has a lot more to offer than you might think, mate.

episode of Coronation Street. I was struck by a working-class feel and the cool warehouse district retro look. Many of Manchesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial redbrick warehouses have been transformed into funky new hotels. I never imagined a library could be exciting, but you could literally spend days at the architecturally stunning John Rylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Library. This gothic structure houses some of the rarest books in the world, including the Gutenberg Bible and the personal papers of John Dalton, to name a few. After that cultural injection, I decided it was time to unwind with some Manchester nightlife. The New York club scene has nothing on this hopping town!

Try a variety of mushrooms, such as portobello, cremini or button in this Marinated Flank Steak with Oyster Mushrooms dish. Serve it alongside steamed rice and bok choy or other green vegetables.

Preparation:

1

ROSE REISMAN

Combine the apricot jam, oyster and hoisin sauce in a small bowl. Set aside half of the sauce. Brush the other half over the shrimp. On a barbecue, lightly coated with cooking spray, grill the shrimp, until they are just no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Ingredients: • 16 medium shrimp (about 12 oz), peeled and deveined • 16 wooden skewers (about 6 inches long) • 1/4 cup apricot jam • 1 tbsp oyster sauce • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce • 3 tbsp chopped fresh basil

2

Whisk the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, vinegar, sugar, 2 tbsp oil, ginger and 1 tsp of the garlic in a small bowl. Place the steak in a non-reactive container, add the marinade, cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. Bring to room temperature before cooking. Heat the 1 tsp oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the remaining 1 tsp. garlic and mushrooms and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the mushrooms are browned and the liquid has evaporat-

Yields 6 Prep time: 10 mins Cooking: 19 mins

Remove the steak from the marinade and set the marinade aside. Barbecue the steak until it’s done to your liking, turning once. Depending on how thick it is, this can take anywhere from 8 to 15 minutes. While the steak is cooking, whisk the cornstarch into the reserved marinade. Bring to a boil in a small skillet and simmer on medium-low heat for 5 minutes, until thickened. Add the mushrooms. Slice steak thinly across the grain and serve with the sauce. Garnish with a sprinkle of green onions and parsley.

Cutting the steak against the grain ensures tenderness.

Ingredients: • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce • 1/4 cup rice vinegar • 2 tbsp brown sugar • 2 tbsp vegetable oil • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger

• 2 tsp minced fresh garlic • 1 1/2 lb flank steak • 1 tsp vegetable oil • 4 cups sliced oyster mushrooms • 2 tsp cornstarch • 1/3 cup chopped green onion • 1/3 cup chopped parsley

Work burnout:

Are you feeling the heat?

High expectations are at the root of most office meltdowns

Recognize the signs and take care of yourself

ISTOCK

RICHARD REESH WOODBURY LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

With the great expectations placed upon people in today’s always-connected work society, many are feeling the effects of burnout. The good news is it can be eliminated, but it requires people to be honest about what they’re going through. “Unfortunately, people are embarrassed by being burned out and they feel there is a stigma and perhaps a sense of failure they haven’t been able to cope, so they’re often very reluctant to go to the very people that can help them,” says Hilary Predy, the associate vice president of business solutions with Adecco Canada, a human re-

Face it. You’re biting off more than you can chew at work, and your body and brain are none too happy about it.

sources company. Burnout doesn’t happen overnight and usually stems from high (and often unreasonable) expectations placed on people, says Dr. David Posen, a stress management expert in Oakville, Ont., who has written three books on the topic. Posen says high expectations lead to high levels of

effort, which drain people of their energy and lead them to physical, mental and emotional exhaustion. Some of the early warning signs include mental and physical fatigue, irritability, impatience, sleep disturbance and decreased concentration. To avoid burnout, it is important people set realistic expectations for their

work and what they can accomplish. They must also take good care of themselves and get enough sleep, as many of the symptoms of sleep deprivation are symptoms of stress, such as fatigue and decreased mental function, says Posen. Regular exercise helps reduce stress and elevates people’s moods. Eating well is also very important and one should stay away from caffeine. “Caffeine actually generates a stress reaction in your body,” says Posen. “It stimulates adrenaline, releases cortisone and blocks a natural relaxant in the brain.” While cutting back one’s work hours may seem counter-intuitive, Posen says his patients find they become more productive by working less. For people who are ready to talk with their employer, Eddy Ng, a human resources management professor at Dalhousie University in Halifax, recommends they take advantage of their employee assistance program (EAP) and call the confidential line to get

professional help. In the case of smaller firms that don’t have an EAP, it will probably be necessary for people to talk with their boss. Ng says people should ask for help and says it is

helpful if they explain why they are burned out. Possible reasons could include workload, unfair treatment, role conflicts and work/life demands. “Burnout can be reversed,” he says.

A little extra planning STUDENT VOICE KEVIN CALLAHAN TALENTEGG.CA

After completing university, I immediately created a job hunting strategy and used that strategy to find an incredible opportunity in Australia for a Canadian start-up. Here is a break-down of my job-hunt strategy. Contacts:

Keep your contacts warm and give them a reason to want to hear from you and

Don’t be robotic about it, but a little organization helps keep you on track.

ultimately help you. Nobody wants to hear from a job searcher only when they need their help. Interact with them via their preferred method of communication. Sometimes this is informally through Twitter, and sometimes it’s a quick email to ask them how their vacation was. By no means should you waste anyone’s time, but building and keeping rapport, even after you secure a job, is an essential part of the job hunt. I had a spreadsheet (literally!) that showed me who all of my contacts were, where they worked, and when I last spoke to them.

Focus:

Even if you are willing to do anything (I’ve been there), try to show some restraint and zero in on a few job areas or industries. While it may seem counter-intuitive to limit your search, it is actually much easier to tailor your application to specific jobs when they’re all in the same industry. Motivation:

Keep yourself motivated and positive – nobody wants to hire someone who is down in the dumps. This is an often overlooked but important job hunt tactic.

Where Kevin is now

I recently completed an MBA and I am a happy entrepreneur working on Dazzle.me, a website that combines deals from various sites into one convenient location. I love the online industry because it is fastpaced and constantly changing. It ties in all the things I enjoy, from social networking to client interaction.

Polish:

Make sure every aspect of the job hunt is done properly, from having a well written, proofread cover letter

of the interview table and I can say that people who have a polished resumĂŠ, are dressed appropriately, and are comfortable in their knowledge of the position and the company are rare. Get involved:

Companies want students who are motivated and show a history of success. You may think this means work experience, but it can also mean extracurricular activities and sports teams. So, get involved in any way you can!

useful feedback. I have been on both sides

My advice to employers would be to try to craft a job posting in a way that speaks of your brand. Using the typical, dated job posting formula just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to work anymore. TALENTEGG.CA, CANADAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ONLINE CAREER RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS AND RECENT GRADS, WANTS TO HEAR YOUR STUDENT VOICE. SHARE IT AT TALENTEGG.CA.

What I learned Key take-aways from Kevinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience: Treat the job hunt like you would any major project: you need a strategy! Having a strategy allows you to focus your efforts and increase your chances of success. Companies want to hire real, interesting people. Having that little extra hobby or skill, something that speaks of your personality, can potentially get you the interview. Look for hints about a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture in their job postings. A company that is innovative, flexible and a great fit for students will likely make that evident in their postings.

On course to face a legend?

Another win at Wimbledon and Raonic would likely meet Nadal MICHAEL REGAN/GETTY IMAGES

sports Quoted

Milos Raonic returns a shot Monday during his first-round Wimbledon match against Marc Gicquel.

“It’s a sad day for hockey fans in Atlanta, but the franchise is going to a good place and run by good people.”

One more win at Wimbledon and Milos Raonic will likely face the biggest match on the grandest stage of his young tennis career. If the 20-year-old from Thornhill can defeat Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller today in the second round, he will almost certainly face defending champion and world No. 1 Rafael Nadal next. For Nadal to keep his side of the bargain, he only needs to beat American Ryan Sweeting, a man he

“I think I can push myself and reach new limits match by match, day by day, and just keep getting better.” MILOS RAONIC

dispatched 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 at the Australian Open in January and 6-3, 6-1 in Indian Wells in March. Raonic was impressive Monday in a first-round 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over Marc Gicquel of France, with his awesome serve doing much of the damage. “I’ve played (Andy) Roddick three times,” said Gic-

quel, 34, referring to the big-serving American. “But with Raonic, he hits his serve so effortlessly. He doesn’t really force it and it comes off incredibly big. With Roddick, you sense that he really tries to put a lot into it, to hit it hard.” Playing his first match on the Wimbledon grass, Raonic won 86 per cent of

the points when he made his first serve, and a healthy 70 per cent on his second serve against Gicquel. Raonic’s next challenge will be Muller, a tall hulking left-hander with a big serve of his own. “I’ve never played him, but I saw him at some Challengers we both played last year,” said the 28-year-old Muller. “I know he’s one of the young guns coming up and that he really hits hard.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Blue Jays’ offensive struggles continue

5 1 BRAVES

JAYS

Brian McCann hit a tworun homer, Jason Heyward had an RBI single and Mike Minor ended a nine-start winless streak in the Atlanta Braves’ 5-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays last night. The Braves have won three straight following a 1-5 stretch. Toronto manager John Farrell, who called a team meeting before the game to let pitcher Ricky Romero address comments he made in criticizing the offence Monday, watched the Blue Jays struggle at the plate for the third straight game. After losing 2-0 to Atlanta Monday night on a two-run homer by pitcher Tim Hudson in the seventh inning, Romero said the Blue Jays relied too much on Jose Bautista and Adam Lind to drive in runs. “I think he recognized the fact that some of those (remarks) might have been interpreted the wrong way and to his credit he wanted to be sure that no one took them as such,” Farrell said. “And he addressed his teammates.” Toronto starter Zach Stewart (0-1) allowed 10 hits, five runs, three walks and struck out two in 32⁄3 innings.

Raptors now in Casey’s hands

CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS

New coach introduced ahead of tomorrow’s draft Reportedly beat Lawrence Frank to lead the Raptors Dwane Casey may not know hockey, but the Toronto Raptors’ new head coach wants to bring some of the sport’s hard-nosed character to the struggling NBA team. The Raptors introduced the former Dallas assistant yesterday, nine days after he helped the Mavericks win the NBA title. Casey partially credits the Mavericks’ performance against LeBron James and the Miami Heat to breaking down hockey video. “We felt like we were playing too soft against Miami to start the series and it really set the tone (defensively),” Casey said at the Air Canada Centre. “I don’t know a lot about hockey. I know I’ll learn about it. But we spliced in (footage of ) those guys checking players up into the (glass), into the boards and that type of thing and that’s the way we want to play. “We want to make sure people feel us when they cut through the lane. And that’s a mindset, and that’s having a disposition — a bad disposition.” Casey takes over one of the NBA’s worst defensive

RAPTORS HEAD COACH DWANE CASEY

THE CANADIAN PRESS

Djokovic rebounds at Wimbledon Novak Djokovic has started another winning streak. The second-seeded Serb beat Jeremy Chardy of France 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 yesterday to open his Wimbledon campaign, his first victory since his 43-match winning streak ended in the French Open semifinals. “When this streak ended in Paris, it was kind of a relief as well because it’s been a very, very successful five, six months for me, but very long as well and exhausting,” Djokovic said. The Serb dropped just two points on serve in the first set and 11 in the entire match. He saved the only break point he faced. Six-time champion Roger Federer was also dominant, winning 68 of the 80 points on his serve against Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan and saving three break points, winning 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-2.

“Defensively, I’m going to be a hands-on control freak so to speak. Offensively, I’m going to trust them and give them freedom.” squads coming off a 22-60 season. The 54-year-old native of Morganfield, Ky., said his top goal is to give the Raptors a “defensive identity.” Casey replaces Canadian Jay Triano, who was shuffled into the front office earlier this month and stood quietly at the back of the news conference. General manager Bryan Colangelo said the move made sense for both Casey and the Raptors. “This is the right fit for Dwane Casey and it’s the right fit for the Toronto Raptors’ organization,” Colangelo said, adding Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle called him just hours after winning the title to see what it would take for Casey to get the job in Toronto.

Battery in the back

Cooling things down

Fuel economy

The eAssist gets its energy supply from a 115-volt lithium-ion battery that’s positioned behind the rear seat. The 29-kilogram battery’s compact size means that the LaCrosse’s 60:40 split rear seat will still fold flat for additional storage as before (unlike some other hybrid models), but with only about a 15 per cent reduction in trunk space.

Lithium-ion batteries tend to generate a lot of heat, as anyone who has ever operated a laptop computer on their lap can readily attest. To help cool things down, an electric fan is used that draws air from a vent located on the parcel shelf behind the rear seat. According to Buick, the fan motor will not be noisy enough to disturb any passengers.

Buick promises that the driving experience with the new hardware won’t differ from piloting a regular gas-engine model. But what will be different is the fuel economy rating that the LaCrosse is expected to generate: 8.01/100 km in the city and 5.4 on the highway. Those numbers represent a significant 26 per cent improvement in city fuel economy and 16 per cent on the highway over the 2011 LaCrosse’s 10.8/6.5 city/highway rating.

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA WHEELBASE MEDIA

Seekers of fuel-efficient mid- and full-size luxury sedans have had little choice but to shell out a hefty premium demanded by Lexus, BMW and Mercedes-Benz for a luxury gaselectric hybrid model. That’s about to change

later this year when General Motors’ Buick division rolls out its 2012 LaCrosse equipped with the eAssist system. As the name implies, eAssist is an electrified helper motor that doesn’t independently power the car, but kicks in when the LaCrosse is accelerating or heading up hill. But that’s only part of

the story, so much so that GM avoids using the term “hybrid.” The technology begins with a 15-horsepower liquid-cooled electric motorgenerator that replaces the LaCrosse’s traditional alternator. Beyond providing power enrichment for the 182-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder gas engine

when needed, the generator also automatically shuts it down anytime the car comes to a stop. It also cuts off the engine’s fuel supply whenever the LaCrosse is decelerating, while maintaining necessary power to the car’s braking, steering and other electronic controls. Pretty slick stuff.

TESLA TAKES ON QUASI MAINSTREAM

Tesla, maker of allelectric vehicles, is going mainstream — or at least to Tesla’s version of mainstream. California-based Tesla arrived on the Canadian automotive landscape last year, with one model — the Roadster, a little allelectric ditty offering lots of get-up-and-go, and lots of exclusivity with its starting price of $125,000. By next summer, Tesla will have another model — the Model S. A $57,400 luxury-sports sedan that will seat 5, or 7 with the optional rear-facing child seats. By 2013 we can expect Model X (a tall wagon or SUV kind of thing), and sometime after that, another sedan (a BMW 3 Series competitor kind of thing). Tesla is determined to build and sell about 100,000 vehicles a year, which is more or less capacity of the former-Toyota plant (in Fremont, California) that Tesla took over last year. This sounds like mainstream volume, but don’t be fooled. Tesla isn’t interested in anything mainstream. The technol-

ogy of the cars isn’t mainstream, and either is how it intends to market and sell and service its growing volume. We caught up with Tesla’s main man in Canada, Hans Ulsrud in Toronto. While the Model S concept looks pretty fetching, Ulsrud assured me that the production car “looks even better.” Tesla Canada’s first sales facility will be located in Toronto later this year, but don’t go looking for it where dealerships usually congregate, like in those big, sprawling “auto malls” just outside the city. Ulsrud said the showroom will be in one of the premier shopping malls in the GTA. And for style and feel, he said, “Think Apple Store…” The same sales

executive behind Apple’s infiltration into the malls is behind Tesla’s retail strategy — George Blankenship. Tesla Santana Row was the first such store (San Francisco), followed by Tesla Park Meadows is the second (Glendale, Colorado). This calls for separate service facilities. Toronto’s service facility opened just this week, near the airport. Tesla Service also does house calls. According to Ulsrud, other key Canadian cities for Tesla are Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. (All around late 2012, or early 2013.) You can now reserve a Model S, with a (refundable) deposit. The first 2,000 will be special “Signature” editions. Ulsrud noted that half of the 200 Signature models earmarked for Canada are

Putting more Sport into a sporty car DRIVING FORCE JIL MCINTOSH DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

It used to be that if you wanted to make your car sportier, you had to get out the wrenches. Today, with the electronic systems on many cars, you simply need to push the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sportâ&#x20AC;? button on the console. Depending on the vehicle, activating the button might increase the steering resistance, change the throttle response or the transmissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift patterns, adjust the shock absorbers or vary the exhaust. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our cars have numer-

Many cars have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ecoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; buttons to help maximize fuel economy ous options and it depends on what is fitted to the car,â&#x20AC;? says Laurance Yap, manager of public relations for Porsche Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more stuff on the car, the more the sport button does.â&#x20AC;? Traditional power steering relies on a hydraulic pump, but several new models have a combination of hydraulic and an electric motor, or completely electric-assisted steering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The electro-hydraulic steering gives you more assist at lower speeds, gradually dialing it back at higher speeds,â&#x20AC;? Yap says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you hit the Sport button, it gives you less assistant all across the board. We want that because it feels a bit heftier, with a bit more feel

through the steering wheel.â&#x20AC;? When activated, the Sport program quickens the engineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to your foot on the throttle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get more power earlier by pushing down less on the pedal, making it feel faster,â&#x20AC;? Yap says. The

engine canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any more power in Sport mode, but it delivers it quicker. The automatic transmission also adjusts, holding each gear longer, keeping the engine at higher r.p.m., and locking out the higher, fuel-efficient gears â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is

why cars tend to use more fuel in Sport mode. If the suspension contains adjustable dampers, the Sport mode makes them stiffer, which improves handling. It also makes the ride firmer, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the fun. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an optional air sus-

pension, the Sport mode will lower it to make the car more aerodynamic. Finally, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Porsche equipped with a special â&#x20AC;&#x153;sportâ&#x20AC;? exhaust, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will open a flap in the exhaust to make it louder,â&#x20AC;? Yap says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give you any more power, but it makes it louder.â&#x20AC;? And to a sports car fan, that definitely makes it better.

Bank on family-ready versatility JUSTIN PRITCHARD/FOR METRO

Compass with manual gearbox will be the safest bet

mission, or a bucking or “jerking” sensation when decelerating, could be signs of trouble. Opt for a manual-equipped model where possible. Finally, check the ceiling liner around the map lights, as well as carpeting in the front footwells for signs of moisture — which could indicate a leaky sunroof or drain tubes.

What’s the 4-1-1 Model: 2007 to 2010 Jeep Compass. Vehicle type: Compact crossover/4x4.

JUSTIN PRITCHARD

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

Though the Jeep Compass wasn’t a diehard mudslinger like its siblings, it intended to attract a new buyer to the brand with its fuel efficiency, city-friendly sizing and promise of affordable adventure. All models got standard four-cylinder power and front wheel drive. The larger, 2.4-litre, 172 horsepower engine is typically preferred. Compass could be fitted with an “intelligent” AWD system that featured a driver-lockable centre differential for enhanced trac-

tion. Transmission choices were a manual five-speed box or a Continually Variable Transmission (CVT). Look for features like heated seats, Bluetooth, premium audio, a sunroof and multimedia connectivity. A household power outlet was also available, and split-folding seats enhanced cargo capacity when required. Sizing was in the same ballpark as a Toyota Matrix, Dodge Caliber or Mazda 3. End of the day, compact driving dynamics, fuel effi-

ciency and versatility moved the Compass from dealer lots more than offroad prowess, though Compass was capable of light to moderate off-road work as needed. What owners like

Manoeuvrability, flexibility, all-season traction with 4x4 models and styling, all seem to be rated positively by the majority of Compass owners. Car-like ride quality, the up-level stereo and fuel mileage were also

The verdict

praised. What owners dislike

Owner-stated complaints tend to centre around cheap interior plastics, sluggish performance from models with the CVT transmission, road noise, blind spots and limited ground clearance and off-road abilities. Common issues

When test-driving a used Compass, “listen” to the vehicle’s front end for signs of clunking, popping or grind-

ing sounds while steering or travelling over bumps. Unwelcome noises could indicate a worn-out suspension component, and numerous owners have reported premature wear of these parts. Driveability issues with the CVT transmission, including reduced or sluggish acceleration, could be a computer-related problem fixed by rebooting or re-flashing the vehicle’s computer brain. Grinding sounds from the CVT trans-

Low resale values, good mileage and family-ready versatility will be the primary draws to the Jeep Compass in the used market. Shoppers seeking out a model with a manual transmission and a clean bill of health from a Chryslertrained mechanic should enjoy fairly solid reliability and affordable all-season driving confidence.

Case of the disappearing gas stations The alternative fuel search is taking us into a new world to save our own

What does it mean for corner gas?

GREG PERRY FOR WHEELBASE MEDIA

JOE KNYCHA

WHEELBASE MEDIA DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

Is this the beginning of the long goodbye for North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied gas stations? Could â&#x20AC;&#x153;gasâ&#x20AC;? become irrelevant among new energy products? No single energy source is likely to dominate the market in coming years, predicts the man in charge of charting the alternate energy future for Honda America, which means the future filling stations will need to evolve. But how? A diverse approach is how best to meet the needs of drivers and the environment, says Robert Bienenfeld, senior manager of environment and energy strategy for Hondaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Product Regulatory Office in Torrance, Calif. Bienenfeldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of future mobility â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which

he has shared with the Obama administration in its auto-task-force deliberations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sees vehicles powered by a wide variety of methods. As new technologies are developed to drive the next cars and trucks, the service stations that provide fuel for them will undergo a similar transformation, says Bienenfeld. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to provide a wider array of fuel options: No matter what powers the vehicles, they will all still require periodic fuelling. His transportation model builds on the availability of a range of fuel technologies, a number of which will be neither gasoline- nor oil-dependent. Bienenfeld encourages a diverse approach to

Gas stations will need to evolve as new fuel options become popular.

transportation and hopes governments donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t favour any single-source fuel

strategy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to take a portfolio approach; there are no right or

wrong answers,â&#x20AC;? he says. Traditional service stations will need to adapt to meet and service those diverse sources of power, Bienenfeld said. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll offer gas and diesel as well as ethanol/methanol, natural gas, biomass, quick-charge battery stations, air compressors for air-powered vehicles and, one day perhaps, hydrogen. Increasingly, Bienenfeld sees oil companies and their service-station outlets becoming energy providers, as opposed to simply gas stations. In the case of batterypowered vehicles and home-charging stations, utilities will need to become involved, he added. Quick-charge battery technology, already used in Japan for Mitsubishiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all electric MiEV, will

make purely electric cars a more practical long-distance proposition. But even â&#x20AC;&#x153;fastâ&#x20AC;? charging might not be fast enough for drivers travelling long distances at a time. Instead, Bienenfeld sees charging outlets popping up at homes, work places and airports. Still, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count out new advances in battery technology that are likely yet to come, bringing with them greater range and shorter recharge times. One such technology is inductive (wireless) charging in which the road is embedded with plates that transfer electricity to the vehicle as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moving above.

Animation. Based on real rides

Think those loveable cars in Disney Pixarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cars 2 are rooted in fantasy? Well, it may be time to make a trip to the junkyard. METRO

Lightning McQueen back again The characters in the Disney Pixarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cars 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is in theatres on Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are based on actual cars and vehicle specs. Lightning McQueen is equipped with a V8 engine capable of reaching speeds of 200 miles per hour; Nigel Gearsley, a newcomer to the Cars franchise, is modelled after a 2009 Aston Martin DB9R; and Acer is based on a 1975 AMC Pacer.

Protect your car inside and out

Regular servicing, such as oil changes, can help protect your engine and keep your wheels on the road longer

Simple procedures like regular oil changes allow drivers to drive their vehicles longer.

It’s no surprise that consumers are keeping their automobiles for longer periods than before, but according to a study performed by the survey gurus at R. L. Polk & Co., Canadians are keeping their cars on the road longer than ever before. Fourty-three per cent are still on the road today after 15 years, up from 28 per cent in 2000. That’s why it’s important to protect the investment in your car, which can mean the difference between trouble–free driving and costly repairs. Change your oil

A regular oil change is the service most likely to help prolong the life of your vehicle. Changing the oil (not just topping it off) and using a high–quality motor oil that meets the spec-

ifications recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer helps your engine get the protection it needs. • Check the oil level regularly and change the oil at the intervals outlined in your owner’s manual. • Replace the oil filter with every oil change. Monitor your vehicle’s fluids. Engine oil is not the only fluid your vehicle needs to run properly. Check your owner’s manual to find information about where fluids are contained, how to check them, the type your vehicle uses and how much should be in each “reservoir.” If you see drops of fluid under your vehicle, you should be able to identify them by colour or consis-

tency. A few small drops are probably not a cause for concern, but you should take note of small puddles. • If the fluid is green, pink, yellow or fluorescent orange, it could indicate a cooling system leak or an overheating problem. • If the fluid is dark brown or black, it is most likely engine oil. The engine could have a bad seal or gasket or a loose oil filter. • A red oily spot means you probably have a transmission or power steering fluid leak. • A small puddle of water is usually normal and is simply condensation from the air conditioning system or the defroster.
