Rahela Nayebzadah will do everything to make her brother’s dream come true. Rasool, 21, got hit by a car when he was five while he was crossing the street at Central Park in Burnaby with his two sisters. It left him brain damaged and partially paralyzed. His wish is to meet Justin Bieber. “Ever since we went to his concert, he just can’t stop talking about him,� said Nayebzadah, 26. “He always asks me to introduce Justin to him. “I’ve seriously tried everything. I’ve tweeted him so many times. I’ve added his manager and his mom. I’ve also tweeted his fans. I joined Twitter just for that.� She also made a Facebook group page called Help a Disabled Fan Meet Justin Bieber. It has more than 3,600 members. She was happy about strangers joining the group and showing their support, but the comments started turning negative and hurtful. “A lot of people were making fun of Rasool and Justin Bieber,� she said. “I’m not asking people to like Justin, and I thought of cancelling it, but this is about my brother’s dream.�

The final countdown on HST The fate of the Harmonized Sales Tax will be signed, sealed and delivered by Friday evening. The outcome of the mail-in referendum, however, won’t be known until Aug. 25 as the counting process gets underway after the passing of the voting deadline. Elections BC spokesman Don Main said anywhere from 60 to 100 staff will be working two shifts a day, seven days a week to ensure the results are counted as quickly, and accurately, as possible. “It’s the same process we go through during an election, except it’s done in one location,” Main said. The only other mail-in referendum in B.C.’s history — a 2002 questionnaire on treaty negotiations — generated a 37 per cent voter turnout. Main said it was too early to tell what the turnout for the HST referendum will be. Meanwhile, the NDP vowed to campaign against the tax up to the eleventh hour and unveiled a “Top 65” list of reasons to extinguish the controversial tax on Thursday. Opposition leader Adrian Dix said the “only thing” that would save the tax is a low turnout and urged people to hand in their ballot in person by 4:30 p.m. at designated locations. It is too late to send the referendum ballots through regular mail. For a full list of drop-off locations, visit elections.bc.ca. MATT KIELTYKA/WITH FILES FROM TERRIS SCHNEIDER

Government won’t budge on euthanasia Nicholson says no plan to discuss assisted suicide in Parliament AG office lawyers have argued against two challenges in B.C. court system MATT KIELTYKA

@METRONEWS.CA

The federal government remains staunchly opposed to euthanasia as two legal challenges go forward in British Columbia. Federal Attorney General Rob Nicholson hosted a regional crime forum in Vancouver Thursday and reaffirmed the Conservative government’s position

on the right to die. “The question of euthanasia was rejected in Parliament,” Nicholson said. “We’re not bringing up the issue.” Gloria Taylor, a West Kelowna resident suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease and seeking a doctor-assisted suicide, won the right to have her constitutional challenge of the Criminal Code fast-tracked at B.C. Supreme Court this

week. A four-week summary trial, challenging sections of the code making assisted suicide illegal, has been scheduled for Nov. 15. Meanwhile, the Farewell Foundation will find out later this month whether its right-to-die civil claim can go forward in B.C. Supreme Court, and its director has already indicated he’s ready to take his fight all the way to the

Supreme Court of Canada. But Nicholson suggested the government’s stance is unwavering, no matter the outcome in court. “I don’t comment directly on anything that’s before the court. We’re arguing on the constitutionality of the existing laws of this country and we’re not interested in introducing (euthanasia) in Parliament,” he said.

Canada-wide alert ends, Penticton sex attack suspect held nearby RCMP

Jen, left, and Sylvia Soska show off prosthetic props used in their first feature film, Dead Hooker in a Trunk.

Call them the twisted sisters They’ve made one horror film, another’s on the way PHYLICIA TORREVILLAS

VANCOUVER@METRONEWS.CA

Vancouver twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska have taken the next step in their quest to break through in the testosterone-filled world of horror films. The Soska sisters say it has been a long journey since they made their Vancouver-filmed, low-budget bloodbath feature Dead Hooker in a Trunk in 2007. But their hard work has

paid off: U.S. distributor IFC Midnight picked up the film last month. Their debut film will be showing across the U.S. and Canada in limited, special midnight theatrical screenings. “We started making a fake trailer (for our final school project) and decided to show it,” Sylvia said. “Half of the audience walked out and the other half was laughing and cheering.”

After seeing the great response, the Soska sisters wrote the script within two weeks and maxed out their credit cards to make the full feature film. They wrote, directed, produced, starred in and performed their own stunts for the film. Now the pair are busy filming their second feature, American Mary, about a med student who gets involved in messy underground surgeries.

Mounties had launched a Canada-wide search for a man accused of a vicious assault on a young mother. But he was found just 50 kilometres away — in plain sight. David Wesley Bobbitt was arrested Wednesday night near the town of Oliver, B.C. Bobbitt is accused of attempting to murder a 22year-old woman who was beaten for hours and sexually assaulted in Penticton — all in front of her 22month-old son. Heide Held, whose family owns Hillside Orchards in Oliver, said Bobbitt had been camping for two days

David Wesley Bobbitt

on the boundary of her family’s orchard. She said she assumed he was a transient fruit picker and said her father spoke

with him briefly and asked him to move his camp so he could spray some trees. It was only after the police arrested the man that they made the connection, Held said. “My dad looked at the picture this morning and said ‘Oh my God, that’s the guy I talked to,’” she said RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said Bobbitt was captured after an orchardist asked a man attempting to camp on his property to move on. The orchardist phoned an RCMP friend and Bobbitt was arrested walking down the highway. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Man held in Six-year-old No charges stabbing boy shot for Mountie Police have arrested a 26-year-old man after a fatal stabbing in Victoria. The stabbing occurred during an altercation in an apartment that sent two men to hospital. Police say one later died, while the other was treated for his wounds and arrested.

A 53-year-old man faces firearms charges after a six-year-old boy was shot and injured in Richmond. The boy, visiting from China, was injured at a home in Richmond’s Steveston neighbourhood. He had surgery for an abdomen injury and is expected to recover.

A Mountie driving a police vehicle that killed an 18year-old woman in Surrey in January won’t face charges. Prosecutors say there isn’t enough evidence to support a charge against the officer. The accident was at King George Highway near 98th Avenue.

Set to hit the road Legendary drive-in Triple O’s launches mobile food truck

Scott Lewis offers up a Triple O’s burger Thursday in Vancouver.

A B.C. restaurant known for its legendary drive-in is taking its show on the road. White Spot’s Triple O brand is launching a mobile food truck, which it claims is a first for a Canadian quick-service chain. “Founder Nat Bailey

used to sell hotdogs and hamburgers out of his Model T,” said Scott Lewis, Triple O’s director of operations. “He was the pioneer of this kind of idea.” The mobile food truck will support charitable organizations, including Variety Club and KidSport, and be hauled to events like the Abbotsford Airshow, Aug. 12 to 14. Lewis said Triple O’s also

hopes to use the vehicle as a testing facility. The truck will feature new products such as pulled-pork poutine, a barbecue bacon burger with caramelized onions, and an orange creamsicle milkshake. “We’re hoping people love our food in the trucks so much that they’ll come to our White Spot restaurants,” said Lewis.

The Vancouver Fire Services received $1 million to buy or replace emergency-response equipment, structuralcollapse training and certification, task-force operations, and maintenance.

Man arrested after woman stabbed to death Police have arrested a man after a woman was found stabbed to death and her 18-year-old son was critically hurt in a violent attack on Gabriola Island. The tiny island just east of Nanaimo was in virtual lockdown overnight as police on land and in boats and helicopters

hunted for 37-year-old Jason Cramer, who was eventually taken into custody without incident. “Any vehicle that left the island last night was searched,” RCMP Sgt. Cheryl Armstrong said Thursday. Cramer was arrested Thursday morning not far from where Elaine Schwartz, 50, was killed. Her 18-year-old son Trevor was taken to hospital with serious injuries, though Armstrong said he has regained consciousness. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Wrongly accused? Tough luck If you do by chance find yourself wrongly accused on Cheaterville.com, don’t expect the website to take the post down. Founder James McGibney says they don’t play judge or jury. “We don’t decide whether we believe that someone’s telling the truth about an alleged cheater or not,� he said. According to Internet and defamation lawyer Gil Zvulony, if the accusations are both false and damaging, it could become a libel suit. But suing the website might not get you very far. While the defamation laws in Canada are different from the U.S.’s, Zvulony says the legalities aren’t clear. “It’s certain in the U.S. they’re immune from lia-

Heartbreakers beware CHEATERVILLE.COM

Cheaterville.com allows users to accuse others of infidelity Site has 10,000 profiles of alleged cheaters For those with an itch to cheat, there’s a new reason to think twice before sneaking around. Unless you want to risk being outed online. Cheaterville.com, a U.S.based website that made its way to Canada last month, allows anonymous users to post stories accusing friends, enemies, coworkers, ex-lovers and acquaintances of infidelity. The site currently has about 10,000 profiles of alleged cheaters, which include full name, age, hometown, marital status, photos and other information. The infidelity stories are not verified but that doesn’t worry founder and CEO James McGibney. “There’s lots of things

on the Internet and not everything is validated. At the end of the day, it’s up to the person who’s reading the post to determine whether it’s true or not,� said McGibney, noting that the site is moderated and posts with nude photos, personal phone numbers or credit card information are not allowed. McGibney launched the site on Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas and it has been gaining popularity since then. A former U.S. marine, McGibney says he decided to start Cheaterville.com after a fellow marine found out his wife had been cheating on him during his deployment. Less than six months later, the site gets about 250,000 hits

Cheaterville.com, who wished to remain unnamed, denied the accusations and said the site has no business publicizing private matters. The allegations could cause their family enormous distress and ruin their professional reputation, the accused added. MARIANA IONOVA

29,000 kids dead: U.S. SCHALK VAN ZUYDAM/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

More than 1,000 refugees arrive daily to a crowded camp in Kenya

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

her wealthy family’s home in an extortion attempt. Bomb squad specialists safely freed Madeleine Pulver, 18, after 10 hours with the device attached around her neck. The woman was not injured. The device contained no explosives. A note of demands had been attached to the device. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Women stand in line to get water in a refugee camp in Dadaab, Kenya, on Thursday. The camp was designed for 90,000 people but now houses about 440,000 refugees, almost all of whom are from war-ravaged Somalia.

The drought and famine in Somalia have killed more than 29,000 children under the age of five, according to U.S. estimates, the first time such a precise death toll has been released related to the Horn of Africa crisis. The United Nations has said previously that tens of thousands of people have died in the drought, the worst in Somalia in 60 years. The UN says 640,000 Somali children are acutely malnourished, a statistic that suggests the death toll of small children will rise. Nancy Lindborg, an official with the U.S. government aid arm, told a congressional committee in Washington on Wednesday that the U.S. estimates that more than 29,000

children under the age of five have died in the last 90 days in southern Somalia. That number is based on nutrition and mortality surveys verified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The UN on Wednesday declared three new regions in Somalia famine zones, bringing the total number to five. Out of a population of roughly 7.5 million, the UN says 3.2 million Somalis are in need of immediate lifesaving assistance. Getting aid to Somalia has been made more difficult because al-Qaidalinked militants control many of the areas. Tens of thousands of refugees have fled south-central Somalia in hopes of finding food.

Penguin earns web following

RADICAL ROADTRIP

REQUIREMENTS WHAT BETTER WAY TO STICK YOUR NECK OUT, BOND WITH MATES AND EXPLORE CANADA!

Wayward animal discovered on New Zealand beach Happy Feet to have a GPS tracker attached to his back Happy Feet is now a creature of the Internet age. The wayward emperor penguin, discovered on a New Zealand beach six weeks ago, will soon be returned to the wild — but not before he picked up an online following of more than 120,000. That’s how many unique visitors have logged onto a web camera monitoring his every move. Thousands more are expected to follow the updates after he’s released in coming weeks, with feeds from a GPS tracker attached to his back posted online. His followers don’t seem bothered that Happy Feet, nicknamed after the 2006 animated movie,

does little more than eat, sleep and occasionally waddle. “At 11:20 p.m. in New Zealand, Happy Feet was sound asleep with his left foot and flipper sticking out,” one Facebook fan wrote. The penguin was found June 20 on Peka Peka Beach, about 65 kilometres northwest of Wellington and far from his Antarctic feeding grounds. He was moved four days later to the Wellington Zoo after becoming ill from eating sand, which he likely mistook for snow. He has since gained weight and been given a clean bill of health to return to the ocean.

His unusual journey captured worldwide interest, with local station TV3 setting up a webcam on June 30 in his small, icefilled room at the zoo. The phone calls began coming in soon after, even prompting the zoo one night to send a veterinarian to check on the penguin after the station was swamped by worried callers convinced Happy Feet had died, zoo spokeswoman Kate Baker said. It turned out the penguin was sleeping. One woman wrote an email to TV3 saying she was ill but taking “a lot of comfort in simply watching the penguin.”

Prosecutor: Norway killer keeping quiet

Hama resident: Charest backs Gardens used minister Quebec’s premier has exas cemeteries pressed clear support for

A Norwegian prosecutor said Thursday he is concerned that Anders Behring Breivik, the confessed perpetrator of last month’s attacks that killed 77 people, is declining to give information that could determine if he had accomplices. “We still think he was alone, but we cannot conclude about that,” said prosecutor Christian Hatlo.

Gunmen in plainclothes are randomly shooting people in the streets of the besieged Syrian city of Hama and families are burying their loved ones in gardens at home for fear of being killed themselves if they venture out to cemeteries, a resident said Thursday. “People are being slaughtered like sheep while walking in the street,” said the resident.

Jean Charest says Sam Hamad has had a difficult job of reassuring the public in the wake of a collapse in a major Montreal tunnel. Hamad has also had other complex issues to handle even before the collapse above the VilleMarie expressway.

One heckuva Caddy shack GM upgrading Oshawa plant to roll out new Cadillacs next year Says plant will play critical role in transformation of the luxury car PAUL SANCYA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

General Motors will invest $117 million to refit its assembly plant in Oshawa, Ont., to build the new Cadillac XTS next year. GM said Thursday that the move will create or save 400 jobs on the flexible assembly line in Oshawa, site of the company’s Canadian headquarters and main carmaking operations. The plant has had major changes in the past year, with new vehicle models and expanded production that has added two shifts and 1,300 jobs. It builds many GM models, from the Impala and Camaro to the Chevrolet Equinox and Buick Regal, and employs more than 4,500 people. The Cadillac XTS is being designed to compete against other luxury cars,

North American stock markets took a hammering Thursday as investors grew more pessimistic

about the economy. The composite index on the Toronto stock exchange plunged 435.89 points to 12,380.13, its biggest one-day decline since June 2009. New York markets also fell hard, with the Dow Jones industrial average tumbling 512.76 points to 11,383.68. And recent reports show that U.S. manufacturing, consumer spending and hiring are below healthy levels. “The evidence suggests there is now the risk of a serious economic slowdown,” said Sid Mokhtari, market technician at CIBC World Markets. Investors will be looking at economic data released Friday for more perspective on the direction of the U.S. economy. Canadian jobless figures for July will also be released on Friday and economists expect about 20,000 jobs were created.

Atwood for Mayor: A public feud between Margaret Atwood and Toronto Coun. Doug Ford (Mayor Rob’s older bro) that began over public libraries (he wants to close branches to save $$$; she says no way) has led Atwood supporters to begin a cheeky, viral “Atwood for Mayor” campaign on social media and around Toronto. Atwood’s not biting: “Noo, not running for Mayor.. too old. Used to think Too Ignorant, but that hasn’t stopped some. :D Appreciate the kind thoughts however!” she tweeted out to her 235,000 followers. Kings of Leon in trouble?: Frontman Caleb Followill walked off the stage in Dallas last weekend, citing heat exhaustion, and didn’t return. In an act of commendable transparency, his brother, bassist Jared, sent out a couple tweets: “Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words”, and “I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren’t stupid... There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” The band has cancelled the rest of its U.S. tour., and apparently wants Caleb to go to rehab to address his drinking problems. The Change-Up opens: This body-switching comedy starring Jason Bateman and Canada’s Ryan Reynolds starts Friday, with Bateman playing an overworked lawyer, hubby and dad, and Reynolds a single man-child. Think an alpha-male version of Freaky Friday on steroids, and you’ve got a couple of escapist hours of outrageous, over-the-top LOL high jinks. MTV turns 30: MTV turned 30 earlier this week and for a time had the impact on the music industry that Rolling Stone magazine did when it launched in 1967. In recent memory, of course, it has become much more about pop culture than the music, but college kids still want their MTV. They just watch it while also listening to iTunes and checking out YouTube videos. Neil Armstrong: Happy 81st birthday to the first man to walk on the moon, on July 20th, 1969. To celebrate, since Mr. Armstrong shares a birthday with Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys, may we suggest a listen of Intergalactic?

Comedian Jerry Lewis and the Muscular Dystrophy Association aren’t saying why they’re fully parting ways after 45 years and raising more than $1 billion for the non-profit through its annual telethon. But the 85-year-old comedian told reporters last week that he plans to hold a press conference the day after this year’s telethon to talk about what he thinks is important. When pressed by a reporter about his role with the telethon, Lewis said: “It’s none of your business.” The association announced Wednesday that Lewis was no longer its national chairman and he would not appear on the telethon this year. In May, Lewis said in a statement issued through the association that he would make his final appearance on the telethon this year and sing You’ll Never Walk Alone during a six-hour primetime broadcast scheduled for Sept. 4. When asked what he’d have to do to be satisfied with his life, Lewis said: “Get the cure for muscular dystrophy, then I’m fine.”

You don’t need to get a bee in your bonnet, but ... It was a traffic accident with an added sting. RCMP officers had to close an Alberta highway Thursday after a truck carrying honey bees rolled into the ditch. Mounties say the contents of 104 hives spilled onto both sides of the two-lane road southeast of Edmonton. Police say the accident happened when one of the truck’s wheels dropped over the highway’s shoulder into the ditch. The flatbed rolled onto

its side and skidded several hundred metres when the driver over-corrected in his attempt to get the wheel back on the road. The owner of the bees arrived on the scene and advised the fire department to spray a mixture of water and foam. RCMP say that killed a lot of the buzzers and brought the situation down to a “manageable level.” The owner also arranged for several of his workers to help clean up. The surviving hives where loaded into two separate vehicles and taken back to their home. The escapees are European honey bees, which aren’t nearly as aggressive as potentially deadly African honey bees, which are known to pursue, swarm and sting. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Plot synopsis In modern day San Francisco geneticist James Franco develops a cure for Alzheimer's which when tested on chimps gives them extraordinary intelligence. When he rescues a baby chimp from his lab after an experiment gone wrong, the ape, named Caesar, uses his newfound smarts to begin a revolution between humans and apes. This ape is mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. Ratings: Richard: 888 Mark: 88 1⁄2

scene Scene in brief

Freida Pinto and James Franco star in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Apes remake lacks soul Rise of the Planet of the Apes is full of action, but loses the camp appeal of the original Crouse and Breslin concur: this classic was better left untouched Richard: Mark, I love Planet of the Apes. I’ve seen the original and the sequels countless times but I don’t think Rise will find its way to my Blu ray shelf. I liked the action and some of the monkey business was very cool, but honestly, I wish they would have kept their stinking hands off my beloved damn dirty apes. MB: Yes, Richard, one tinkers with a masterpiece at one’s own peril. And I can’t help but miss the elements that made the original franchise so great, mostly the heavy-handed irony, satiric wit, and that the apes talked!!! These apes are just too real, grunting away like a bunch of...apes. Although,

even the CGI isn’t perfect. In some shots, Caesar, the lead ape, looks like an overgrown Beanie Baby. RC: I thought Andy Serkis’s performance-capture work as alpha ape Ceasar was both one of the movie’s strengths and weaknesses. No doubt his facial expressions, particularly the use of his eyes, add much to the character but the computer generated imagery used to bring Caesar to life, while often impressive, lacks an organic feel. The Roddy McDowell era apes were obviously fake — sometimes painfully so — but somehow they had more soul. MB: I don’t know about

you, but I found the story — Science Experiment Gone Awry! — cheesy and derivative, but I did enjoy Caesar’s antics in James Franco’s house, which were pure kinetic poetry. But I suspect the entire movie exists for the last 20 minutes when the apes run amok in San Francisco. Genuinely thrilling, for me. Did you think Franco is really the reason to see the movie? RC: No, I don’t think Franco or Freida Pinto are reason enough to see the movie. It’s all about the monkey business. When the revolution begins the movie kicks into gear and becomes the movie the trailers promised. Some of

the action is a bit too showy — since when can apes do martial arts? — but the scene of Caesar on horseback leading the charge against the heavily fortified cops is a real crowd pleaser but for my money it took WAY too long to get to the good stuff.

Michael Bublé will bring a sprinkle of Christmas cheer to television this holiday season. The crooner says he will headline a holiday variety special on NBC in December. The show will be produced by Ben Silverman of The Office and Saturday Night Live mastermind Lorne Michaels. THE CANADIAN PRESS

MB: There’s also a lot of hack work in the minor roles: John Lithgow’s saintly Alzheimer’s patient, the angry next door neighbour, and worst of all, Franco’s boss at the research facility — a cardboard villain out of a much cruddier film. The apes had more depth, although perhaps that’s the point of the movie.

Blige gets personal with The Help

HANDOUT

Singer’s soundtrack contribution is about moving forward She’s doing that by testing her acting chops DEBBIE LYNN ELIAS

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

While she’s lent her musical talents to films before, Grammy-winning singer Mary J. Blige wanted the Living Proof, her contribution to The Help, to be more than a mere soundtrack listing. Based on Kathryn Stockett’s best-selling novel of the same name, the Help captures the essence of 1960s Jackson, Miss., chronicling the relationships between three very different women who come together around a secret writing project that puts them all at risk. “I saw a screening of the movie twice,” Blige explains. “At each screening I had my Blackberry and I would write down each time

#

something would make me cry and I would write down when I laughed. By the time we got to the studio, the song was almost written.” And while the song intertwines thematically with the film, it’s still an intensely personal piece for Blige. “It means everything to me,” she says of the tune. “It means I know exactly where I’m going. I know what lies ahead for me. I know that my journey continues because it’s been so rough here that to have any life, I have to have the courage to keep moving.” And moving forward is something Blige excels at, starting with moving from music into acting. Having already made several television and film appearances, most recently in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad

All By Myself, Blige is currently shooting Rock of Ages. Describing her casting in the Broadway smashturned-movie as “a blessing,” Blige plays Justice, “a gentlemen’s club owner — a very nice strip club owner,” she says. “I have to be the light in a dark place. Normally the person that’s always the most bubbly person is the person with the most problems. The person is always smiling. So, that’s who Justice is. And that’s basically my part. Of course there’s singing. I sing and I act.” Blige is taking her new career seriously, working with an acting coach to hone her skills. “I’m improving,” she says modestly. While she says music

has given her great confidence in life, “acting is just the opposite. It says to me, ‘You’ve got a lot of work to do. You’re blinking. You’re stuttering. Keep working

on that. Keep working on your confidence.’” And where does she hope that growing confidence will take her? Ideally into a Steven Spielberg

film. “If he ever does a huge movie, I would love for him to call Mary J. Blige to be one of the AfricanAmericans in the film,” she says. “That’s a big deal.”

Critics slam Oprah’s Oscar

See it twice 88888 | See it now 8888

Worth watching 888 | Yawn 88 | Don’t bother 8

KEVIN WINTER/GETTY IMAGES

The Future Genre: Drama Director: Miranda July Stars: Hamish Linklater, Miranda July 88

The Change Up Genre: Comedy Director: David Dobkin Stars: Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds, Olivia Wilde 881

The Change Up, a new comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman as best friends who

switch personalities, feels as though it switched directors midway through. The first hour is all gross out — baby endangerment, diaper hijinks and pregnant sex kittens — but into the second hour the characters not only start respecting one

another, but the audience as well. It’s still pretty outrageous stuff, but it has far more heart than the first half and the “I can’t believe they just did that” laughs morph into genuine laughs based on the story and characters. RICHARD CROUSE

The Future is more twee calculation from performance-artist-turnedfilmmaker Miranda July; if it improves on her previous work, it’s only because its story of a couple stuck in a rutis is a little more relatable. A device involving narration by a sick cat is particularly painful. ADAM NAYMAN

Film academy president Tom Sherak is coming to Oprah Winfrey’s defence. Sherak says Winfrey is “one of the most philanthropic performers in the world” and thus deserving of the academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted Tuesday night to present Winfrey with an Oscar statuette at the annual Governors Awards in November. Blogs have been abuzz with criticism over the selection of Winfrey. In an article published Wednesday, Los Angeles Times columnist Patrick Goldstein calls the academy decision “a boneheaded move.” Goldstein and Deadline.com's Nikki Finke say Winfrey belongs more to

Oprah Winfrey

the world of television than film. She was nominated for a supporting actress Oscar for 1985’s The Color Purple, produced and appeared in Beloved in 1998 and was an executive producer of 2009’s Precious. Finke asks in her post if “no one among the philanthropic film bigwigs deserved this award more than her this year?” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Up and coming singers duke it out for coveted guest stint on Glee

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

No one has been named the next star of Glee just yet, but the contestants on The Glee Project already feel like bona fide celebrities. Earlier this week, the final six singers walked the red carpet at NBC Universal’s Television Critics Association party at trendy The Bazaar by Jose Andres in Los Angeles; and each of them looked every bit a star, too. “It was amazing,” contestant Alex Newell gushed during an interview. “We all love to perform, but to get recognized for what we do and what we love to do is amazing. I know that I loved it, and I know that everybody loved to be on a red carpet for the first time

too.” The downside of fame via a reality competition, however, is that only one contestant wins the grand prize of a seven-episode guest stint on Glee. The producers admit the process of whittling down the talent pool on a weekly basis was “excruciating.” “Everyone is fit for the show, which made our decision even more difficult,” says mentor Zach Woodlee, who also serves as choreographer/producer on Glee. “We actually had to look at this show as a trial and sort of a boot camp to get people Season 3 ready.

Ted Danson busts crime 63-year-old actor jumps in as new supervisor for Las Vegas CSI team ‘I feel like I have walked into this perfect situation for me’, he says

It was just three weeks ago that Ted Danson was announced as the new star of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and now he’s in production — and a bit dazed by the suddenness. “My jaw is kind of hanging down from the newness of all of this,” Danson told reporters on Wednesday as he recalled that just two weeks earlier, he was leisurely staring out at the ocean from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. Danson plays the new supervisor for the Las Vegas CSI team on the CBS drama, which films in Los Angeles. Danson steps into the position originally held by William Petersen and then filled by Laurence Fishburne, who had been on the show since its 2008-09 season. Danson’s character, D.B. Russell, is the child of counterculture parents who schooled him themselves at home and during travels in

their van. He has a less obsessive way of experiencing the world than his fellow investigators. Explained CSI executive producer Don McGill, “Here’s this character who has things really, really in balance: family; work; life.” “I feel like I have walked into this perfect situation for me,” Danson said. The 63-year-old actor first found TV stardom nearly 30 years ago playing Boston bar owner Sam Malone on Cheers, a comedy hit on NBC that ran for 11 seasons. And though he has had a variety of roles since then, he said he had never played a crime-buster before. But even now, he said, “They still won’t give me a gun.” CSI, whose stars also include Marg Helgenberger and George Eads, will begin its 12th season on Sept. 21. But will it go on to match the longevity of Law & Or-

‘Zack Morris’ rides for AIDS

DAN STEINBERG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is keeping busy while on hiatus from his TNT Franklin & Bash dramedy by trekking across the U.S. East Coast on a motorcycle ride for charity. Kiehl’s skin care company’s six-day LifeRide for amfAR raises money for AIDS research. The former star of Saved by the Bell is participating in the last three days of the ride starting Thursday — from Boston to New York City. For Gosselaar, an avid motorcyclist, the event was a no-brainer. “Setting a good example for my kids and leading by example is very important to me,” said the father of two. His love of motorcycles started young with his older brother Mike, a wellknown motocross mechanic, teaching him to ride at age 3. Mark-Paul was competing in motocross races by

der and Gunsmoke, which tie the record for TV drama at 20 seasons? “Ted has signed on for an additional 12 years, plus an

option,” joked executive producer Carol Mendelsohn. “Yeah — I think it will.”

I’d ride around on my property at five miles an hour, but it was the noise and the wind that would put him to sleep.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

If you’re a fan of single varietal wines (those made with just one grape), it’s time for some tough liquid love. Most wines that display one grape on their label are made from a juice blend. But there’s no need to riot. The laws of almost all wine producing countries allow for the mingling of fruit to balance flavour. What’s typically displayed on the front panel is the primary grape which is usually more than 85 per cent of the union. The French love the idea of mixing grapes. For example, winemakers in the Rhone Valley’s famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation can have their way with more than 13 to come up with their final cuvée. The Aussies’ have mastered the mega blend with wines like Peter Lehmann’s 2008 Layers Red ($16.99 - $19.99) a berry mash of shiraz, tempranillo, carignane, mourvèdre and grenache that’s red meat ready.

This weekend, make veggies the main dish & use meat as an accent Food Network star Guy Fieri offers a recipe for a grilled romaine salad

MATTHEW MEAD/ THE ASSOCIATE PRESS

A salad should be chopped in the kitchen, not at the table. That’s the advice of Food Network star Guy Fieri, who prefers salads made from bite-size pieces. “A good salad shouldn’t require a knife,” he said. However it does require a salad spinner, or some other means of drying the greens. One of Fieri’s salad turnoffs is wet lettuce. “It needs to be rinsed and dried,” he said. Here, Fieri offers an intense salad of grilled romaine lettuce. “The sweet flavour of the romaine comes out when you char it on the grill,” he said. “Hit it with the balsamic vinaigrette, bacon, onion and blue cheese and you have a nice balance of sweet and savory flavours.” Heat a grill to high. In skillet over high, heat 15 ml (1 tbsp) of olive oil. Add onion and bacon and cook until bacon is crispy, about 10 minutes. Use slotted spoon to transfer onion and bacon to plate. Return skillet to heat and add the balsamic vinegar and 15 ml (1 tb-

Lawrie’s leaving Las Vegas MIKE CARLSON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

sports Sports in brief

The Vancouver Canucks have signed forwards Owen Nolan and Todd Fedoruk to professional tryout contracts, the NHL team said Thursday. Nolan, 39, has played 1,200 career NHL games, recording 885 points from 422 goals and 463 assists, plus 1,793 penalty minutes. The six-footone, 205-pound rightwinger has played for seven teams and spent the 2010-11 season with Zurich of the Swiss League, where he scored seven goals and added 19 assists in 24 games. A native of Belfast, Ireland, Nolan was picked first overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1990 draft. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Tampa Bay rookie Robinson Chirinos leaps off of first base Thursday after his game-winning, 12th-inning hit against Toronto.

Rays rookies rally The rookies were major contributors in Tampa Bay Thursday, helping the Rays come back twice in extra innings to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6. Brandon Jennings’ solo homer in the 10th made it

4-4. Robinson Chirinos tied it again in the 11th with a two-out, pinch-hit single up the middle against Shawn Camp (1-2), then won it with another two-out single in the 12th. The Blue Jays took a brief lead in the 10th when Colby Rasmus delivered a RBI double for his biggest hit

since being acquired from St. Louis. Reliever Jon Rauch blew a save chance in the bottom half when Jennings hit a leadoff homer. Jose Bautista hit his leagueleading 33rd home run for Toronto, a solo shot off Wade Davis that made it 3-3 in the eighth. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jose Bautista bumped back to right field to make room for young third baseman from Langley Canadian third baseman Brett Lawrie will soon make his long-awaited debut with the Toronto Blue Jays. The team selected his contract from triple-A Las Vegas shortly after the Jays dropped a 7-6, 12-inning decision to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon. “We wanted to get him some August at-bats to get a little bit more of a read on him, so he deserved to be up here,” general manager Alex Anthopoulos said on a conference call. Outfielder Travis Snider is the odd man out and he was sent back down to the triple-A club. “It was not an easy decision to make,” said Anthopoulos. “It really came down to (rookie right-fielder) Eric Thames and Travis. (Manager John Farrell) and I talked about it at length and player performance is really what it came down to.” Snider has hit .225 in 49 games this season with three home runs and 30 RBIs. Thames is hitting .272 in his first season in the majors with 22 RBIs and five home runs in 46 games. “When you look at the numbers and the performances to date, they both haven’t done all that well in the last week or so,” said Anthopoulos. “Eric Thames is probably a little bit ahead of (Snider) in July, but on

“We wanted to find out about Brett Lawrie sooner rather than later.” JAYS GM ALEX ANTHOPOULOS

the season, overall, Eric’s played a little bit better than Travis.” Anthopoulos said Thames would move to left field and the newly acquired Colby Rasmus will stay in centre. The Blue Jays also recalled left-hander Luis Perez from Las Vegas and placed right-hander Carlos Villanueva on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain. The 21-year-old Lawrie has hit .353 for Las Vegas this season with 18 home runs and 61 RBIs. The top prospect was acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers last December in the Shaun Marcum trade. “You know you’re not going to be 100 per cent sure. Like I always say, the likelihood with all young players is that they’re probably going to have to go back down, but at least you want to do the best you can developmentally to prepare them for being up here,” Anthopoulos said. “Hopefully now with Brett he can be up here to stay for the entire year.” The Blue Jays continue their road trip Friday with the opener of a weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles.

Kornegay looks forward to facing old team It’s the perfect scenario for Tad Kornegay. The hard-hitting linebacker will play his CFL first game as a B.C. Lion on Friday night against his old team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Kornegay was careful with his answer when asked if the game at Empire Field was personal, since the Riders released him earlier this year. “It’s hard to say no, but you can’t look at it that way,” said Kornegay, who

spent four seasons in Saskatchewan and won a Grey Cup in 2007. “I’m going to play hardnosed football. I’m not going to let up just because they are my old teammates. I would love to win this game.” Lions defensive back Korey Banks thinks his 29year-old teammate wants to send a message. “Nobody wants to get cut,” said Banks. “Then play your old team the next

“Their reasons didn’t make sense. I can’t be bitter. Everybody is going to be released in their career.” TAD KORNEGAY

(game), that is great. “That’s an ideal story for him. He knows those guys and they know him. He will have a good game.” The game will pit two struggling teams against

each other. The Riders are 14 while B.C. is the league’s only winless team at 0-5. Wide receiver Weston Dressler is off to a good start this season with 26 catches for 389 yards and two touchdowns. He said the Riders aren’t used to looking up at other teams in the standings. “Ever since I’ve been here we’ve gotten off to pretty good starts,” he said. “It’s a different situation. We kind of look back to last

year a bit. We went through that stretch toward the end of the year where I think we lost four games in a row. We are tying to use that as a little motivation.” The Lions know a win keeps them in the West Division mix. A loss shoves them deeper into the league basement. “We want to start winning and we want to start winning now,” said slotback Geroy Simon. THE CANADIAN PRESS
