LRT project on budget JESSICA SMITH/METRO

First phase to be completed by 2018 Provincial, federal governments have each committed $600 million STEVE COLLINS/METRO

Changes to the city’s proposed LRT line — including a shorter, shallower tunnel under downtown — will keep the project on budget at $2.1 billion, adjusted for inflation, Mayor Jim Watson announced yesterday. Instead of digging 12 storeys under Albert Street as originally planned, the tunnel would be built one block north, under Queen and Rideau streets, making it possible to be built only four storeys beneath the surface. “It will help keep transit affordable,� Watson said. “By converting the most heavily used part of our bus system to LRT, OC Transpo will be more productive. Instead of busses clogging up Albert and Slater, light rail trains will be speeding by just underneath the surface of Queen Street.� Not only will the shallower tunnel save on the cost and uncertainty of digging, he said, it will also cut the price of station maintenance, make those stations more accessible and connect them better to the basements of existing downtown buildings.

“This is simply more aordable. It provides us with the surety that we’re going to go forward really with great conďŹ dence.â€? SOMERSET COUN. DIANE HOLMES

“The public sent a very clear signal to me and council last October,� Watson said. “Cancelling the last light rail project was a costly error. Get your act together and move forward with a realistic and affordable plan. Get a shovel in the ground sooner rather than later.� On Thursday, council will hold an open meeting where members of the public can voice their views on the plan. STEVE COLLINS

Mayor Jim Watson gives a speech at city hall Thursday outlining the new plan for light rail transit in Ottawa.

Doctors told David McGuire he wouldn’t walk again. Now he’s running across Canada. A serious brain injury landed him in the hospital in 2005 and then cost him his job. He made strides in recovery physically, but he slipped into depression and struggled with bouts of short-term memory loss. At the beginning of last April, however, he began running to raise awareness of brain injuries. On Thursday, he passed through Ottawa. “If some kid puts on a helmet and avoids what I’ve gone through ... that is my ultimate goal,” said McGuire. However, McGuire didn’t fall off a bike. His brain injury came one day when he was at work: he just passed out. Doctors later found he had had a stroke. “It went misdiagnosed because of my age,” said McGuire, adding that by raising awareness about strokes and other brain injuries, he hopes he will prevent people going through what happened to him. “It’s all about preven-

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, brain injury from trauma alone occurs at an annual rate of 500 out of 100,000 individuals in the U.S. The incidence is higher in children, at 795 out of 100,000 individuals. 456 people suffer from brain injury every day in Canada. This amounts to one person injured every three minutes. Most injuries occur in males aged 16 to 24. Brain injury from trauma is the greatest killer under the age of 45 and the greatest disabler under the age of 44. It kills more children under the age of 20 than all other causes combined.

tion because the majority of brain injuries are preventable.” McGuire started his run in Newfoundland on April 1. To date, he has covered more than 2,660 kilometres. He expects to reach New Westminster, B.C., at the end of the run by November.

David McGuire takes a breather on Parliament Hill Thursday as he passes through Ottawa on his run across Canada to raise awareness of brain injuries.

Women’s conference wraps up, bridging cultural differences

After landing in Toronto in late 2009, Mr. Zhang went alone to the Scotiabank branch at the Steeles & Silverstar location to activate his accounts. Speaking only Mandarin and Russian, he wasn’t sure how things would go. Luckily, he was greeted by Isa Ho, Branch Manager, and her multilingual staff. “Surprisingly, it went well, and my accounts and debit card were ready, and my VISA* card came within a week,â€? marvels Mr. Zhang. Isa, a Canadian immigrant who speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin, is well prepared to serve newcomers.

The world’s fastest wireless Internet network launched in Ottawa on Thursday — but there aren’t any phones sold in Canada that can use it yet. Rogers announced its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network is live in the Greater Ottawa Area with a demonstration showing off faster Internet browsing and crystal-clear video streaming for those who are plugged into the network. The company said typical download speeds range from 12 to 25 Mbps. Rogers won’t be the only company

Rob Bruce, Rogers president of communications, announces Thursday that Ottawa is the first city to get access to its new LTE wireless network. This painting by Drew Edwards is part of an exhibition at the Patrick John Mills Gallery called Pretty Ugly Art, which opened last night and runs until the end of the month.

That’s why he’s showcasing the “ugly” stuff in a show titled Pretty Ugly Art. It’s on at the Patrick John Mills gallery until the end of the month. “It’s some pretty art and some ugly art. It’s a pretty ugly show,” said Mills. “It’s art that emerges from your soul. You’re not trying to decorate your living room.”

Stadium roof collapse kills one

TUBANTIA/CARLO TER ELLEN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FC Twente scheduled to host Champions League match this summer Friendly match cancelled The roof of a Dutch sports stadium partially collapsed during off-season construction work Thursday, killing one person and leaving 10 others hospitalized, a local mayor said. In all, 16 people were injured when the roof at the southern end of the FC Twente stadium collapsed around midday, said Peter den Oudsten, mayor of the Dutch town of Enschede where the football stadium is located, about 160 kilometres east of Amsterdam. Three people were treated at the scene, he said. Two injured workers went to hospital on their own for treatment before returning home. He added that one of the hospitalized victims remained in “a very critical condition.” FC Twente chairman

Joop Munsterman said the entire club was in shock. “You see this kind of thing in a disaster movie, but not in real life.” News video showed at least one construction worker, apparently bleeding from a head wound, escorted by paramedics. Sniffer dogs and cameras were used to search for anyone trapped under the tangle of girders and roof panels behind the goal at the Grolsch Veste stadium. The search was eventually halted. Den Oudsten said emergency services were sure nobody was trapped. The cause of the collapse was under investigation. Construction work aimed to increase capacity to 30,000 from 24,000 by adding a new tier of seating.

Ambulance workers are seen inside the Grolsch Veste stadium in Enschede, Netherlands, on Thursday. A section of the Dutch football stadium collapsed during off-season construction work, trapping people underneath, police said.

South Sudanese brace for independence PETE MULLER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The people of South Sudan finally get their own country on Saturday, an emotional independence celebration few thought possible during a half century of civil wars and oppression that left more than two million dead. Military parades and celebrations will burst forth Saturday in front of dozens of visiting world leaders. But the new nation will

have to face grim realities: it will be one of the world’s most underdeveloped countries, only 15 per cent of its citizens can read and fears of renewed conflict abound. South Sudan’s independence drive was made possible by a 2005 peace deal between Sudan’s north and south.

Man with a machete holds kindergartners hostage for six fearful hours A man carrying a machete barged into a Malaysian kindergarten and held children and teachers hostage for six tense hours Thursday. The man threatened to kill the children unless he was given a gun, police said. The children were heard singing in what was believed to be an attempt to calm the man. Finally, police shot him in the head. The 30 children and four teachers were not harmed, officers said. The unidentified man was in hospital in critical condition after sustaining a single bullet wound to the head, said Jalaluddin

Germany approves embryo selection Morality of genetic testing at heart of heated debate After an emotional debate, German lawmakers voted Thursday to allow a procedure that looks for genetic disorders in embryos before they are implanted in the womb. Lawmakers voted 326260 to permit the procedure known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis under strict conditions after a debate that cut across party lines. Eight lawmakers abstained. The procedure is sometimes used after in-vitro fertilization, when parents whose families have a history of genetic disorders want to avoid having a child with a lethal or severely debilitating birth defect. Elsewhere in Europe and in the U.S., the test is often used in infertile couples who have failed in previous attempts to

have children while using IVF in hopes that the test will boost their chances of implanting the best embryo. While the procedure is permitted in other countries, its legality had been a grey area in Germany. Parliament took up the issue after a federal court last year ruled that a doc-

tor who had performed the procedure hadn't committed any offence. Under the law, an ethics commission will have to decide on a caseby-case basis whether couples can use the procedure. An expert would have to certify that a couple’s child faced a high risk of a serious genetic disorder or that a miscarriage or stillbirth was likely. A large minority of lawmakers had favoured a total ban on the practice, with some saying that even limited permission for genetic selection set a bad precedent. Debates on procedures that involve genetic selection tend to be tinged in Germany by memories of the country’s Nazi past, but no one mentioned that during the debate. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dalai Lama unites U.S. politicians MANUEL BALCE CENETA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Democrats, Republicans greet spiritual leader China complains about the official reception In a rare show of unity, U.S. Republican and Democratic leaders found a cause to rally around Thursday, their support for the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. The Nobel Peace laureate arrived in Washington this week for an 11-day Buddhist ritual and was invited to the Capitol to meet with leaders of the House of Representatives. His visit already has drawn criticism from China, which regards the Dalai Lama as a separatist troublemaker and bristles at any official recognition of the exiled Tibetan leader. The White House has yet to announce whether he will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama as he did, al-

beit in low-key fashion, on his last visit in February 2010. The Dalai Lama recently gave up his leadership of Tibet’s government-in-exile. Beijing accuses him of seeking Tibet’s independence from China. The Dalai Lama denies those accusations, saying he wants autonomy for Tibet within China. He remains the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism. Thousands of expatriate Tibetans will seek his blessing during his current stay in Washington, his longest visit yet to the U.S. capital. Lawmakers of both parties have called for the Dalai Lama to be received at the White House.

The Dalai Lama and House Speaker John Boehner leave a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday.

Paper shuttered in tabloid shocker JULIE JACOBSON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

News of the World reels from backlash over phone hacking Former editor Andrew Coulson faces arrest The Murdoch media empire killed off the muckraking News of the World tabloid Thursday after a public backlash over the illegal tactics it used to expose the rich, the famous and the royal and remain Britain’s bestselling weekly newspaper. The abrupt decision stunned the paper’s staff of 200 and ignited speculation that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. plans to rebrand the tabloid under a new name in a bid to prevent a phone-hacking scandal from wrecking its bid for a far more lucrative television deal. Mushrooming allegations of criminal behaviour at the paper — including bribing police for information and hacking into the

Fleet Street fury The News of the World sold about 2.7-million copies a week. The long-running phonehacking saga exploded Monday with the revelation that the paper had hacked into the phone of Milly Dowler, a 13-yearold girl who was abducted and murdered in 2002. Police say they are examining 4,000 names of people who may have been targeted. Shares in News Corp. were up 1.6 per cent Thursday at $18.22 US on the Nasdaq index in New York, although they have fallen from above $18.50 since Tuesday.

voice-mail messages of celebrities, politicians and the families of murder victims — cast a dark cloud over News Corp.’s multibillion-pound plan to take full ownership of British Sky Broadcasting Group PLC, an operation far more valuable than all of Murdoch’s British newspapers. Faced with growing public disgust, political condemnation and bolting advertisers — including automakers Ford and Vauxhall, grocery chain J. Sainsbury and pharmacy chain Boots — Murdoch stopped the presses on the 168-year-old newspaper. James Murdoch said all revenue from Sunday’s final issue, which will carry no ads, would go to “good causes.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi arrive for a conference Thursday at the Sun Valley Inn in Sun Valley, Idaho. The Murdoch-owned News Corp. has jettisoned Britain’s weekly News of the World, but many analysts believe Murdoch is merely trying to contain the damage from a phone-hacking scandal so as not to jeopardize his bid for broadcaster BSkyB.

Obama hints at cuts to social programs PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A debt-crisis session among U.S. congressional leaders was “very constructive,” President Barack Obama said on Thursday, but the parties were still far apart in their attempts to avert a default of U.S. financial obligations. He said he would reconvene the negotiators on Sunday. Thursday’s meeting came amid signs the White House was willing to cut spending on major benefit programs for the elderly, while Republicans hinted they might consider new

steps to raise revenue. Such a compromise could see both parties upsetting their political bases before next year’s congressional and presidential elections. Democrats are already campaigning as defenders of social programs while Republicans oppose any tax increases. The White House has also said the president is aiming for deficit reduction closer to $4 trillion over 10 years, nearly double the roughly $2 trillion that had been at the centre of negotiations.

Banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions held talks in Rome on Thursday in their latest effort to get the private sector involved in saving Greece from default. Though Greece has approved severe spending cuts and is receiving a 100billion-euro bailout, many

expect it will need another lifeline to avoid default. Banks that hold Greek bonds are expected to participate in that second bailout, but ratings agencies have threatened that such involvement could force them to consider Greece in default. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Spectre of debt Obama says the government needs to raise the $14.3-trillion debt limit by Aug. 2. If a deal is not reached by that date, the U.S. could default on its debt, which would likely touch off a global financial crisis and plunge the country into another recession, analysts say.

Sugar at root of food price hike Rising sugar prices pushed up global food prices once again in June after a brief lull, the Rome-based Food and Agriculture Organization said Thursday. The UN agency said its price index rose 1 per cent during the month.

Despite the increase, food prices are still 4 per cent below the all-time high recorded in February. It said improved weather conditions and Russia’s lifting of its export ban on wheat helped contain prices. However, experts have warned that prices are expected to remain volatile for years to come due to declining stockpiles and only modest increases in production. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.S. President Barack Obama meets with congressional leaders on Thursday to discuss the debt. Among the bipartisan lawmakers at the meeting were Nancy Pelosi, House minority leader, and House Speaker John Boehner.

Raising the U.S. debt ceiling is usually little more than a formality, but Republicans who control the House of Representatives say they won’t go along without major spending cuts, and they will not accept tax increases, something Obama has said will be necessary. “People were frank,” Obama said, just moments after adjourning the meeting with the eight lawmakers who make up the bipartisan leadership of Congress.

A family’s search for the perfect cottage. The search for a family cottage isn’t as easy as one might think. It’s location, amenities, activities for the kids and more importantly fitting the purchase into the family budget.

After all the whole idea was to get away from cutting grass and fixing things so I could spend more time with my children and simply relaxing.

The cottage experience is as Canadian as peameal bacon or real maple syrup and should be experienced by everyone at least once in their life. Sitting by a campfire roasting hot dogs, making “spider dogs” or toasting marshmallows, making “smores” is a rite of passage for any young camper.

“Fractional Ownership” cottages were affordable but they have maintenance fees and we couldn’t justify spending over one hundred thousand dollars for something the family could only use for only 4 or 5 weeks a year.

As we looked into cottages we found it was quite simple to find something to rent but what about ownership? The thought of being able to escape after a long week at work would be great. Along with my kids having a safe and memorable place to spend their summers would be more than perfect. After a lot of research what we found is, that cottages can be very expensive to say the least. Gone were the days when I grew up, where a $20,000 investment got you a family cottage on the lake. The cottages we liked seemed to cost as much as our home if not more, with some

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning BENGHAZI, Libya.

Moammar Gadhafi is loved in Libya’s rebel capital — as a subject for street artists to mock. Caricatures of the Libyan leader dot walls and buildings across Benghazi in renderings that range from crude sketches to elaborate satire such as Gadhafi being knocked around by a rebel-flagged boot or depicted with a Nazi swastika. Before Libya’s uprising, even a hint of dissent risked a crushing response from Gadhafi’s security forces. Now, it’s open season on Gadhafi in rebel-held territory. For some aspiring cartoonists — and others wanting to make their mark — this means getting out their spray paints and markers to display their opposition. Rida, a 35-year-old barber and interior designer before the rebellion, makes dozens of Gadhafi sketches each day. Some have shown him in a trash can or with his clothes blown off by a U.S. jet fighter. “I cannot fight with arms, but I can kill him with my pencil,” said Rida.

News reported Thursday. Navarette was unable to track Mimi down, even though she had a microchip containing his contact information. Some time later, Kim Rafter of Rogers acquired the animal from someone in good faith, renamed her Gizmo, and has cared for her ever since. Meanwhile, Navarette relocated to Woodlake, Calif. Last Saturday, Mimi showed up at an animal shelter in Rogers where officials found the chip and called Navarette, who had kept the same cellphone number. Assistant shelter manager Matt Colston said Navarette was excited Mimi had been found and said he would pay for the Shih Tzu to be shipped to his home in California. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses.

Bosses delivers the goods Richard Crouse and Phil Brown agree the premise of Horrible Bosses is a bit tired Despite that, it’s a funny movie that induces pants-wetting laughs

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Movie writer Phil Brown is sitting in for Mark Breslin this week. Richard Crouse: Phil, of course no reasonable person would break into their bosses homes looking for ways to kill them, but this is a comedy so we’ll accept that. Or will we? I thought the movie started off strong, funny and well paced, but its central premise — let’s kill our bosses! — seems forced and it sucks some of the funny from the middle part of the movie. What did you think? Phil Brown: Richard, I’ve got to go the other way. The premise of having a terrible boss that makes

your life hell is sadly all too relatable for many, but the opening bad boss gags felt tired even with the R-rated facelift. It didn’t click for me until the murder element turned the movie into a live action cartoon with a sick sense of humour. RC: Interesting, I felt as though I was watching a funny enough movie marred by a silly premise. It’s one thing to have some drinks and joke about killing your boss, it’s quite another to act on it. I don’t want to beleaguer this point, but the crucial setup scene to me felt forced, like a weak lead in to a funny punch line. Having said that, Charlie Day

made me laugh. A lot. PB: The whole premise is old and they even namedropped two movies that did it better (Strangers On A Train and Throw Mamma From The Train). I think we can both agree that things really got rolling in the second half when it deviated from that form. Charlie Day definitely induces pants-wetting laughter consistently and I think the cast made this movie work through an improvisation festival. The only problem is that comedy style kills narrative momentum and there was no real tension in the thriller aspect of the story. Though I suppose the laughs are more important.

RC: And there are plenty of laughs. I don’t want to be Debbie Downer here. The movie is funny. It was cool to see Kevin Spacey revive his character Buddy from Swimming with Sharks, and if this doesn’t wipe away any traces of Rachel left over from Jennifer Aniston’s TV work I don’t know what will. Now, I guess, she’s America’s Foul Mouthed Over Sexed Sweetheart. PB: In my mind, she always will be. Despite the inconsistencies, Horrible Bosses delivers the goods and will always be the only movie featuring Colin Farrell doing a coked-up Michael Keaton impression with a comb-over.

The website Funny Or Die debuted a Field of Dreams sequel Wednesday. Twilight star Taylor Lautner plays the equivalent of Kevin Costner in a mock movie trailer that quickly drew more than 150,000 views.

A Pooh for a new century Disney gives Winnie the Pooh a more contemporary feel, yet stays true to the classic charm of the original RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Winnie the Pooh has Canadian roots. The beloved A.A. Milne creation, a potbellied bear with a taste for “hunny,” was based on a real-life Canadian black bear that lived at the London Zoo. Brought to the zoo by Lieutenant Harry Colebourn during the First World War, the bear was named Winnie after the soldier’s hometown of Winnipeg. It’s fitting, then, that the new Disney Winnie the Pooh movie had many Canadians help bring it to the screen. “It’s like winning the lottery having worked here,” says Alberta native

Brian Ferguson of his 21 years working at the House of Mouse. His first job after joining the company was animating the company’s mascot in Mickey Mouse’s Prince and the Pauper. “It’s such a simple design,” he says, “but if you get a pencil thickness off in the proportions, it looks wrong.” That’s a lesson he took with him when drawing the classic characters in Winnie the Pooh. “The people who did the first Winnie the Poohs were masters and the stuff they did then, wow,” he says. “Even as an experienced animator I look at it and go, ‘Oh my goodness, I wouldn’t have thought of that.’ It’s subtle little things that make a character be

just a little away from normal. It’s the subtle difference between, ‘I would never have done it that way,’ to ‘I would never have thought to do it that way.’” Nik Ranieri, a Torontonian with 23 years at the studio, adds that while the classic look of Winnie the Pooh has been maintained in the movie, efforts have been made to update the feel of the film. “When I watch the film there are some things in there I don’t think you’d see in the old ones,” he says. “Look at the character of Rabbit. Some of those poses and expressions are a little more manic, but it doesn’t take away from the charm of the original. It just adds a little bit of contemporary

feel to it.” For Vancouverite Clio Change, Winnie the Pooh marks a landmark — it’s her first Disney film. “I think I was four when I

told my dad I wanted to work here,” she says. “He said, ‘OK, you can sell Coke in the parks in a mouse suit.’ Luckily it was animation instead.”

When I ask her if all the Disney Canucks have their own table in the cafeteria she nods and laughs, “We eat maple cookies and drink syrup.”

With the final Harry Potter movie hitting theatres next week, Metro takes a look at life after a decade of Hogwarts

A Potter post-mortem COURTESY WARNER BROS

We take a stab at writing book 8 everal years after the fall of Voldemort — and the flight of the remaining Death Eaters to Brazil — newly Certified Public Accountant Harold J. Potter has finally started to settle down into a normal, almost Muggle-ish life. He and Ginny Weasley, now battled nothing more sinister than their first son’s occasional dirty, levitating diaper. But one day Harold went on a business trip to the Ministry of Magic. There he was informed that, through a complicated series of risky dragon scale default swaps and unregulated wand sales to nonmagical beings, the very economic foundation of their world was in jeopardy. Harold also learned that the new Minister of Magic — Harold’s old Quidditch teammate Oliver Wood — had just been found murdered at Hogwarts. Harold’s thoughts turned to Voldemort, the only being capable of such cruelty. But the Ministers told Harold the name that had been scratched into the skin of poor Oliver, and Harold knew he faced a new enemy. The name scratched into Wood’s body, the ministers told Harry, was...Mrs. Norris.

Wands out one last time: Daniel Radcliffe in a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

What’s the next big series? The Hunger Games Premise: Every year, one boy and one girl must fight to the death in a televised event, brought to you by the evil government in charge of the land of Panem. The movies: The first is filming now. Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-nominee, will play our hero, Katniss Everdeen. Chances of it taking off: High. It’s not corny, but clever. Snow White and the Huntsman Premise: Our heroine is cast out by a wicked witch, and ordered to die at the hands of a hunter. The movies: Kristen Stewart leaves one franchise for another, playing a tough version of Snow White. Chances of it taking off: Fair. Percy Jackson and the Olympians Premise: A kid discovers his dad is the Greek god Poseidon. Rick Riordan’s series has five books so far. Chances of it taking off: The first film made more than $200 million worldwide. SAM CASTONE

What’s next for the Potter stars? ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) Currently singing and dancing in the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, he earned rave reviews, even if the production itself didn’t. Chances of future success: 4 out of 5 wands

Emma Watson (Hermione) Already a fashion magazine staple, Watson has left the genre ghetto for trendy indies. Chances of success: 5 out of 5 wands

Rupert Grint (Ron) Is he ambitious, or just a stoner? Either way, Ron will likely keep making likeable movies that no one will see. Chances of success: 3 out of 5 wands

Tom Felton (Draco) He’s getting attacked by primates in Ride of the Planet of the Apes, out this August. Chances of success: 2 out of 5 wands

Alan Rickman (Snape) Rickman will star in The Seminar, a new Broadway play, this fall. Chances of success: After Die Hard, Potter and countless plays, the man’s a legend. Plus, we’re too scared to say otherwise. SAM CASTONE

Captain America keeps name Captain America will keep its patriotic title in most of the world when the superhero adventure hits the big screen. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios gave distributors around the world the option of shortening

the title of Captain America: The First Avenger to simply The First Avenger, out of concern about antiAmerican sentiment. But the only countries that took them up on it were Russia, Ukraine and South Korea.

In other territories, the movie will go out with the full title, a sign that the brand value of the Marvel Comics hero trumps any potential antiU.S. feelings in some parts of the world. Movie titles often are

changed in foreign countries for cultural reasons or because the original names don’t translate well. Starring Chris Evans as the patriotic super-soldier, Captain America opens in U.S. theatres July 22. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

vice from his talking animals (voiced by the likes of Nick Nolte and Cher) on how to win back an ex. It’s goofy, obvious, contrived and corny (there is a trip to TGI Friday’s with a dancing gorilla, after all), but the humour is silly enough to amuse kids without resorting to toilet humour or sleaze for the adults. With this box of chocolates, you know exactly what you’re going to get, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

some demons from his father’s death with this sweetly melancholic autobiographical comedy. Ewen McGregor plays Mills and Christopher Plummer plays his father who came out of the closet at 75 before dying of cancer shortly thereafter. There’s also a painfully realistic love story between the broken character played by McGregor and an equally damaged actress played by Melanie Laurent. It’s a movie about life, loss and finding love despite neurosis and crippling depression. PHIL BROWN

HANDOUT

Summer spotlight for Canadian TV Season not just for TV reruns, but for new shows Canadian TV is hitting full bloom this summer. “You go on in the fall when all the big U.S. shows come and you get buried behind their promotional machine,” says comic Brent Butt, whose Vancouver-set sitcom Hiccups returned with new episodes at the end of May. “Maybe in the summer you get a chance to pop out a little more.” The belief that most people cool down their viewing habits when the weather turns hot is not true, says Butt, convinced that a sizable number of couch-potatoes exist yearround. The fresh crop includes a new season of CTV’s Flashpoint, premiering on Friday. Film and TV star Paul Gross executive produces HBO Canada’s edgy satire The Yard, also debuting

The boys are back The long-awaited Trailer Park Boys followup hits the air July 22 on Action, with Mike Smith, Robb Wells and JP Tremblay playing very loose versions of themselves. The Drunk And On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour centres on a fictional sketchvariety TV show that runs off the rails when the cast mistakenly ingests a powerful hallucinogen.

Friday, about the day-today struggle for supremacy between two schoolyard gangs. On Global, the songand-dance competition Canada Sings debuts Aug. 10, pitting workplace glee clubs against each other in front of judges Vanilla Ice, Jann Arden, and Simple something going on in the real world. It kicks off with two back-to-back episodes. (HBO Canada).

HANDOUT

A ‘competitive landscape’ Glut of new summer programs show how TV’s calendar is changing If September is what first comes to mind when considering new television shows, there are some 82 reasons to think again. That’s the number of new programs that have or will premiere on cable networks post-Memorial Day through August, based on an informal survey. That doesn’t even include existing series that are starting new seasons (HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, USA’s Burn Notice) or new programs on broadcast TV (NBC’s Love Bites and ABC’s 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show), because the latter usually aren’t built to last. Eighty-two. Something new virtually every day. The deluge illustrates rapid change in the television industry: It’s only been a few years that cable networks have actively sought to exploit the broadcasters’ summer vacation to suit their own needs, and already some executives wonder if they will have to look elsewhere on the calendar. “The competitive landscape every year just gets harder and harder for everyone,” said Laureen Ong, president of the Travel Channel, whose new summer series include Mancations and Paranormal Challenge. The new shows run the gamut. There are celebritybased reality shows, featuring the likes of Roseanne Barr, Brad Garrett, Sarah Ferguson and Ryan and Tatum O’Neal. Cooking (Bobby Flay’s Bar-

Summer topics Lifestyle networks find summer a good time to start new programming because interest perks up in topics like travel and home decorating, said Eileen O’Neill, group president for Discovery and TLC. TLC runs on-air, feel-good campaigns spotlighting county fairs, swimming pools, flip-flops and other summer fun.

becue Addiction) and design (Million Dollar Decorators) are well represented. Big-budget scripted series are bowing (Falling Skies and Torchwood: Miracle Day). There are plenty of odd professions in the spotlight (tattoo artists, aquarium makers, tow truck operators and — ewwwww! — the stars of True Grime: Crime Scene Cleanup). Wrong as it may be to judge a series by its title, we confess to not setting the DVR for Ratbusters NYC and Hillbilly Handfishin’. When John Landgraf, president and general manager of the FX network, brought The Shield on the air in 2002, there were a total of 35 new scripted series that premiered on cable networks for the entire year. So far in 2011 it’s nearly 90, with half the year left to go, he said. Networks like FX, USA and AMC all learned over the past decade how one or two critically

praised new series can transform their reputations, so it’s no surprise others have tried. Same thing for nonfiction programming: History is one

of cable’s top networks now, and it’s because of pawn shop operators and Arctic Circle truckers, not Civil War documentaries. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FOR THE LOVE OF STEREO’S SOUND SOUND CHECK

ALAN CROSS SCENE @METRONEWS.CA

Whilst out walking the faithful bull terrier, the Beatles’ Strawberry Fields Forever came up on shuffle on the iPhone. Although I’ve heard the song a zillion times, for some reason, I heard the swirl of sounds in a new way. When it was recorded in late 1966, the concept of stereophonic sound — dividing a recording into left and right channels to create the illusion of spaciousness — was still very new. Eager to explore the possibilities, the Beatles and producer George Mar-

Ringo, left, and Beatles’ producer George Martin.

tin went crazy, separating voices, instruments and even different parts of Ringo’s drums between two channels. It must have been pretty thrilling for those lucky enough to have new-fangled stereophonic record players to hear these new sounds bounce between the left

and right speakers. Today, we take stereo for granted, although almost no one knows anything about the technology. Although attempts at creating a stereo (or binaural) effect go back as far as the late 1800s and were demonstrated repeatedly

through the first half of the 20th century, applying the concept to easy-to-use consumer technology proved to be tricky. An early effort to introduce stereo to connoisseurs of highfidelity sound came in 1953 with special vinyl discs with two sets of parallel grooves, one for the left channel and one for the right. Naturally, you needed two needles mounted in a special (and expensive) tone arm. Then Sidney Frey, the founder and president of a company called Westrex, came up with a solution. Westrex made the machines that cut master plates from which vinyl records were pressed. Frey’s people figured out how to transfer two-track stereo recordings from magnetic tape into just one groove

on a disc. On Dec. 13, 1957, Frey demonstrated his technology with an LP that featured Dukes of Dixieland on side one and railroad sound effects on side two. By the following spring, sales of stereo recordings were in huge demand and musicians, freed from the limitations of monophonic (i.e. onechannel) recording, began to demand that recording studios outfit themselves with the latest technology. By the early 70s, production of mono discs had all but stopped. But mono still has its fans. Old mono records from the Beatles (pre 1966) and Bob Dylan releases (196267) can be worth a lot of money to collectors. Me? I’ll take the swirl of sounds every time.

There are nutrients your body cannot produce. Such nutrients, called “essential” and omega–3 fatty acids, from flaxseed oil or fish oil, are essential fatty acids. Studies show that omega– 3s have many health benefits including the capacity to support mental health and improve mood. Considering the mental and physical challenges faced every day by adults and children alike, eating more fish or supplementing with omega–3s could be a smart way to improve mood and health.

A beautiful combination PETER ROCKWELL LIQUIDASSETS@EASTLINK.CA TWITTER: @THEREALWINEGUY

Combining wine with anything but an empty glass has been called a lot of things — and not all of them pretty. It’s never bothered the Spanish. Their recipe for warm weather refreshment has survived for centuries as the popular red winebased, Mediterraneanmixer sangria. While styles vary, you can make your own version using an inexpensive Spanish red or a value-priced, fruit-forward alternative like Hungary’s non-vintage Hungarovin Szekszárdi Vörös Kékfrankos ($9.68 $12.79). Here’s my basic recipe: • 750 ml chilled red wine • 50 ml brandy • 50 ml orange liqueur • 250 ml lemonade • 250 ml raspberries • 1 orange (sliced • 1 lemon (sliced) • 1 green apple (sliced) • sugar to taste • soda water (optional) Combine fruit, brandy, orange liqueur and sugar in a glass pitcher. Refrigerate for an hour. To serve: Stir in chilled wine and lemonade. Adding a touch of soda water will cause a slight spritz.

People are increasingly choosing budget-friendly camping trips over expensive vacations. But you don’t have to sacrifice good eats with that small budget. Ultimate Camp Cooking boasts 80 fast, easy and delicious recipes.

Preparation:

1

If chicken breasts are thicker than 1⁄2 inch, pound thinner. Place one slice of cheese and

one slice of ham on each breast, leaving 1⁄2 inch of space around edges. Fold edges of the chicken over filling and secure with toothpicks. Mix flour and paprika in a small bowl and use to coat chicken pieces.

2

Heat butter in large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned on all sides. Add wine and

bouillon. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

3

Remove toothpicks and transfer to warm platter. Blend cornstarch with cream in bowl and whisk slowly into skillet. Cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour over chicken and serve warm.

Phillies brace for Braves Atlanta heads into Philadelphia 21⁄2 games back in race for National League East pennant Braves have won five of the nine meetings between the teams so far this season DREW HALLOWELL/GETTY IMAGES

Ryan Howard and the Phillies will take on the Braves this weekend.

Leading the division for all but one day this season means little to the Philadelphia Phillies at this point They’re well aware the standings only matter after 162 games. Still, this weekend’s showdown with the Atlanta Braves is important for both teams. The Phillies are 21⁄2 games ahead of Atlanta in the NL East entering their three-game series at Citizens Bank Park, and they’d like to head into the all-star break with more breathing room. “This is a big series,” manager Charlie Manuel said. “We’ve just got to go in there and play like we’ve been playing.” The pitching-rich Phillies have their three allstar starters lined up to face Atlanta. Roy Halladay (11-3), Cliff Lee (9-6) and Cole Hamels (10-4) will pitch in that order. The Braves, on the other hand, won’t have two of their top three starters. Ace Jair Jurrjens (12-3) and Tim Hudson (8-6) both pitched during Atlanta’s four-game sweep of Colorado. Instead, Brandon Beachy (3-1) goes against Halladay on Friday night, Tommy Hanson (104) starts Saturday and Derrick Lowe (5-6) takes the mound Sunday. “I like competing against the best and they’re pretty darn good,” Beachy said. “It’s a challenge.” The Phillies have the best record in the majors at 55-33, but the Braves (5336) are determined to stand in the way of a fifth

“We’ve been winning some games and we have a good record, but the Braves are right there with us. We ain’t done nothing yet, really.”

straight division title. Both clubs have relied on stellar pitching and each has overcome key injuries and an inconsistent offence so far. Philadelphia is currently without two of its starting five — Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton — and its top three closers — Ryan Madson, Jose Contreras and Brad Lidge. Five-time allstar Chase Utley was sidelined the first two months and centre fielder Shane Victorino and catcher Carlos Ruiz also spent time on the disabled list. Victorino (thumb) and all-star third baseman Placido Polanco (back) are both iffy for this series. The Braves began the season without Jurrjens, and were without Beachy and Hanson at various points. Outfielders Jason Heyward and Nate McLouth were sidelined earlier in the year, and left fielder Martin Prado is on the DL. “We’re similar in a lot of ways,” Manuel said. “If you look at runs scored and hitting, they’re a lot like us. They’ve been doing it mostly with pitching.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DeLaet may miss Canadian Open with back injury Graham DeLaet is unsure if he’ll be able to compete on home soil at the RBC Canadian Open. After sitting out the first few months of the PGA Tour season recovering from back surgery, the 29year-old has returned to the sidelines with some stiffness and discomfort. It may keep him from playing the Canadian Open at Vancou-

ver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in three weeks. “I just love that golf course and the Canadian Open is obviously important to every Canadian, but I’m going to have to wait and see how I’m feeling,” DeLaet said on Thursday. A decision on his status probably won’t come until just before the July 21-24

tournament. DeLaet has played two amateur events at Shaughnessy in the past and considers it his favourite course in the country. It’s been a trying 2011 season for the native of Weyburn, Sask., who suffered a back injury while playing hockey as a teenager and has dealt with varying levels of pain since.

DeLaet elected to have surgery in early January to remove a portion of a herniated disc and endured a few months of recovery. He eventually returned to competition on the Nationwide Tour in June and made two additional appearances on the PGA Tour before withdrawing from the AT&T National last week. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Glenn’s gabbing gaffe and thoughts heading into Week 2 “It was Printers who over-reacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since.”

CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH

OTTAWA@METRONEWS.CA

Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn should take a lesson from Casey Printers, a former MVP whose big mouth and attitude had him punted from the Canadian Football League. Going public with his displeasure after being pulled out of Hamilton’s seasonopening loss to the

Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Glenn said, “It just felt like a smack in the face.” It was Printers who over-reacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since. Quarterbacks are supposed to be team leaders, especially when everything goes wrong. How they react to adversity is just one of the many ways they are evaluated.

Glenn was pulled in favour of backup Quinton Porter with the Tiger-Cats down by four points after the Hamilton starter threw his third pick. He was back on the field this week, hopefully with a better attitude, taking reps with the Tabbies’ first-team offence as the club prepares for the Edmonton Eskimos. Buckin’ Tough: If Winnipeg Blue Bombers fans are convinced the team is going nowhere without Buck Pierce at QB this season, they must have been terrified to

see their star get thumped in Week 1. Although Pierce bounced back on his feet, Hamilton linebacker Jamal Johnson hit him so hard it knocked the breath out every Manitoba resident. Pierce proved he’s a tough dude, but the Bombers need to evaluate their pass protection to keep him on his feet. Esks’ ace in the hole: The constant recycling of CFL coaches often comes back to bite teams. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a case in point after the Eskimos exploited the Green’s defensive tendencies in Week 1. Edmonton offensive co-ordinator Marcus Crandell quarterbacked the Riders and knows the patterns of Riders defensive mastermind Richie Hall, who is back in Regina after two years in Edmonton as head coach. Esks QB Ricky Ray shredded the Riders D in Week 1, going 21-for-27

for 294 yards and three TDs. Kicking crisis in Calgary: Lose an import receiver or running back to injury and you can have a plane full of recruits in town overnight. Lose a Canadian kicker, as the Calgary Stampeders did last week against Toronto, and you really understand pain. The Stamps are without injured placekicker Rob Maver (leg) this week and have added Rene Paredes, a player so obscure he isn’t even a household name in his own house. Paredes spent four seasons at Concordia where he converted 54 of 79 field-goal attempts. The 26-year-old non-import emerged from a pack of kickers the Stamps airlifted into town to try out, including CFL veterans Jamie Boreham and Matt Kellett.

Pirates no longer taking on water A year after enduring 105 losses, new manager has turned perennial losers into National League feel-good story JARED WICKERHAM/GETTY IMAGES

One by one, a seemingly endless train of reporters filed into first-year Pirates manager Clint Hurdle’s office on Wednesday. Last season, the afternoon media session for a midweek game against a last-place opponent like Houston might have drawn a handful in this town where the Steelers rule and the Penguins are a marquee attraction. But it seems like everybody wants to hear what Hurdle has to say these days. An afterthought for virtually an entire generation, these pesky Pirates were only 1 1⁄2 games behind the National League Central lead as play began on Thursday. “There’s been a mindset change in this clubhouse and in this organization,” second baseman Neil Walker said. “I think it’s a lot of guys, but Clint Hurdle has come in here and instilled confidence in every single

one of us.” In stark contrast to insipid predecessor John Russell, Hurdle is at his best with an audience. He cracks jokes, but he’s also not afraid to provide a stern hand with his players. Perhaps no one knows both ends of that this sea-

son better than centrefielder Andrew McCutchen, the team’s best position player. McCutchen was disci-

plined by Hurdle in May and left out of the lineup for not running out a ball in the dirt after he struck out.

But when McCutchen was a surprising omission for an all-star spot last weekend, Hurdle criticized those involved for the decision. “That shows one way that he’s supportive and he’s behind us,” McCutchen said. “It feels good to be

able to hear what he had to say and to have that support by saying what he had to say and not really caring (about repercussions). “That’s the person he is.” Hurdle has recently spoken of the “joy” this season has brought him. The Texas Rangers’ hitting coach last season — after being fired midway through his eighth season as manager of the Colorado Rockies in 2009 — Hurdle said after a recent victory, “I’ve had a lot of different teams, but this team is an absolute blast to manage.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEED ANOTHER HUG

Yesterday’s answer

For today’s crossword answers and for expanded horoscopes, go to metronews.ca

Today’s horoscope You could get a bit touchy today, especially if you suspect someone is aiming to usurp your position. Taurus April 21-May 21 This is a great day for networking, for making connections that will be good for you in the future. Gemini May 22-June 21 You must earn more or spend less — or maybe you’ll have to do both. Cancer June 22-July 22 You may feel as if you don’t have a care in the world but today’s cosmic influences may bring you down a bit.

Yesterday’s answer

Fill in the grid, so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 You seem to be unusually suspicious of late. Seriously, no one wants to hurt you.
