Borrowing from a staged radio drama bought by many, a Calgary filmmaker perpetrated a spacejunk hoax that sparked worldwide attention over the weekend. Sebastian Salazar was watching his Twitter feed fill with discussion of NASA’s dying Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) shortly before midnight Friday. An anomaly over Okotoks on one weather image sparked speculation that debris from the 6.5ton craft could land in the city south of Calgary. One particular tweet expressing fear that aliens could be living in the satellite caught Salazar’s attention, reminding him of Orson Welles’ fake 1938 radio broadcast War of the Worlds, which led many to believe aliens had landed. He pulled transcripts from the broadcast and began tweeting

them out as live events occurring on a farm in the Okotoks area. “People weren’t even checking for legitimacy anymore,” Salazar said yesterday. “I started putting in quotes directly from the play and it kind of spun off from there.” To provide proof of the debris, Salazar gathered some tubing and a piece of scrap metal from his family’s camper and went into the alley behind his northeast Calgary home to snap a photo. “I thought it looked terrible, but some people still bought it,” he said. RCMP fielded numerous inter-

national calls Saturday, some reportedly from as far away as Japan, about the crash landing but no debris was found in Okotoks, confirmed spokesperson Tim Taniguchi. He said Salazar likely won’t face reprimand for his actions, despite some expressing outrage over the hoax online. “It didn’t cause police to enter into an investigation, so, as far as I can see, there is no criminal offence,” Taniguchi said.

Candidate promises free insulin pumps At least one candidate in the ongoing race to become Alberta premier is pledging free access to insulin pumps for diabetics. Gary Mar issued a release yesterday stating that, if elected, he would add the pumps to the list of publicly insured health services. The Canadian Diabetes Association released a report earlier this month that found Alberta has the fastest-growing rate of diabetes in Canada but does not publicly fund insulin pumps like some other provinces.

Sporting a set of hot wheels, Lacombe Chihuahua Duke, seen here in this recent photo, remains a feisty little guy, according to his owners.

Coyote and hawk attacks can’t stop this pup Two-year-old Duke is paralyzed, needs a new home Edmonton woman working tirelessly to aid animal JEREMY NOLAIS

@METRONEWS.CA

Despite suffering through multiple traumas in his young life, one Alberta dog in need of a new home keeps on rolling — literally. Duke, a two-year-old Chihuahua living in Lacombe, Alberta, was attacked and dragged by a coyote last year, according to owner Valerie Parish. His back legs were paralyzed, and surgery costs to

repair the injury were projected to be $10,000. Unable to afford the procedure, Parish’s husband went to work constructing a device that would allow Duke to wheel around using only his front legs. Today, he is as active as ever, Parish says. “He’s a cuddle bum,” she added with a laugh. “He loves to be held always, loves kisses.” Not everything has been easy for Duke, however. In the months following the

initial attack, a hawk sensing the Chihuahua’s weakness swooped in and unsuccessfully attempted to carry him away. Duke requires a great deal more care than an average dog, something Parish and her husband simply cannot provide. They are now looking for new owners and have received some gracious help from an Edmonton woman. Carol Gallant saw Duke’s story on Kijiji and was reminded of a Yorkie she lost

Helping Duke Edmonton resident Carol Gallant estimates she spends between 12-14 hours every day trying to find a new home for Duke. For more information or to inquire about possible adoption, email Valerie Parish at vbparish@telus.net.

Despite warnings from doctors, a man began a hunger strike at city hall yesterday to show his support for human-rights activists in the Middle East. Last year, Abdelmonaim Ibrahim went on a 16-day hunger strike in Lebanon. Yesterday, the Sudanese refugee once again took on the challenge for 24 hours. “I have many problems with the last strike — my kidney, my heart. The doctors all said to me, this is dangerous for you. But this is the least thing I can do,” Ibrahim said. The Calgary resident said he wants to draw attention to human rights

Abdelmonaim Ibrahim said the death of Lebanese activist Nour Merheb was one of the inspirations for his hunger strike. Merheb reportedly committed suicide this month. According to reports, he left behind a video telling why he took his own life.

Scientists against seal-cull plan

Oilsands protesters prepare for battle

EVAN VUCCI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Demonstrators receive tips on how to handle confrontation with authorities on Parliament Hill Protesters were already filing into Ottawa yesterday for a showdown with the federal government over its support for the oilsands and a plan to build a giant pipeline from Alberta to Texas. After the high-profile arrest of celebrities and about a thousand activists in Washington last month for their attempts to stop approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, Greenpeace and other groups hope to gain similar notoriety in Canada with a civil disobedience protest on Parliament Hill today. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Two of Canada’s leading marine biologists and a conservation group say a fiveyear proposal to slaughter 140,000 grey seals in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence is being driven by politics, not science. “I don’t support it,” said Hal Whitehead, a professor at Dalhousie University in Halifax. “From what I’ve

Stars such as Gordon Pinsent, musician David Bidini and indigenous celebrity Tantoo Cardinal are expected. Already the plans for a sitin have had a polarizing effect, with both Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver making a point of defending the pipeline late last week. Environmentalists fear that spills would lead to irreversible damage.

Women can vote, run as candidates for first time in history Reforms seen as giant step toward equality HASSAN AMMAR/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Saudi King Abdullah announced yesterday that the nation’s women will gain the right to vote and run as candidates in local elections to be held in 2015, in a major advancement for the rights of women in the deeply conservative Muslim kingdom. In an annual speech before his advisory assembly, or Shura Council, the Saudi monarch said he ordered the step after consulting with the nation’s top religious clerics, whose advice carries great weight in the kingdom. “We refuse to marginalize the role of women in Saudi society and in every aspect, within the rules of

insulated it from the unrest sweeping the Arab world. But the king has taken steps to quiet rumblings of discontent that largely centred on the eastern oil-producing region populated by the country’s Shiite Muslim minority. Abdullah said the changes announced yesterday would also allow women to be appointed to the Shura Council, the advisory body selected by the king that is currently all male. The kingdom will hold its next municipal elections on Thursday, but women will not be able to vote or run in those contests. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Abbas returns to hero’s welcome Leader asked Security Council to recognize an independent Palestine in the West Bank MAJDI MOHAMMED/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Mahmoud Abbas received a hero’s welcome yesterday from thousands of cheering, flag-waving Palestinians, having made a bid for UN recognition that appears destined to fail but has allowed him to finally step out of the shadow of his iconic predecessor Yasser Arafat. The crowd, many of them holding posters of Abbas, repeatedly chanted his name as he spoke. Abbas was uncharacteristically animated, shaking his hands, and charming the crowd with references to “my brothers and sisters.” Abbas’ call on Friday for the UN to recognize Palestinian independence has

He cautioned that the

Resistance to banking reform taken to task ADRIAN WYLD/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Arrests at Wall Street protest Charges include disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, police said Protest enters its second week slaying of an off-duty Savannah police officer. At Manhattan’s Union Square, police tried to corral the demonstrators using orange plastic netting. Some of the arrests were filmed and activists posted the videos online. One video appears to show officers using pepper spray on women who already were cordoned off; another shows officers handcuffing a man after pulling him up off the ground, blood trickling down his face. Police say the arrests

were mostly for blocking traffic. Charges include disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. But one demonstrator was charged with assaulting a police officer. Police say the officer involved suffered a shoulder injury. Protest spokesman Patrick Bruner criticized the police response as “exceedingly violent” and said the demonstrators sought to remain peaceful. Police had no comment about the videos or the arrests.

issues is being called into question, there appears to be little value in feeding this concern.” Without specifically mentioning the U.S., which is regarded as the most resistant of major economies to the new rules, Carney tried to shoot down the key objections to reform one by one. He reserved his scorn for what he called the most often cited objection — that the uncertainty about proposed new requirements for greater bank capital reserves is already drying up credit and contributing to the current economic weakness. He pointed out that it is a far greater probability that credit has slowed not because of a reluctance to lend, but because would-be borrowers can’t afford more debt.

Canada’s Mark Carney waded into the touchy and controversial issues facing the American financial system yesterday, dismissing concerns — or excuses — about banking reform. Speaking at a financial convention in Washington, the Bank of Canada governor gave a spirited defence of new international rules, and chided resisters as misconceived or fatalistic. He noted that such thinking led to abuses and excessive risk-taking that resulted in the recent collapse of the system, leading to a global recession still haunting economies today.

LET’S TAKE A VOTE: PUBLIC OR PRIVATE HEALTH CARE? It’s the only vote that matters, says a friend. That one vote is for the leader of the Progressive Conservative party in Alberta. JANICE PASKEY That person gets to be preMETRO CALGARY mier. So is it OK to buy a membership to vote for the next PC leader Oct. 1 if you’re not a conservative? We determined it is. But consider this: Alberta’s biggest budget item is health care. So I looked up poll favourite Gary Mar’s platform on health care, both on video and online. There’s no mention of private care at all. That’s good. When I consider my family’s dental bills and “I’d like to see eyeglasses costs and U.S. our next premier bankruptcies because of medical bills, I’m afraid of carefully weigh private health care. the advantages of In an ad flyer for private Calgary clinic Pivotal, Dr. public and Donovan Kreutzer says, “It’s private care not just an option for the without wealthy.” So a $3,600 to $3,900 ideological yearly adult fee isn’t for the rhetoric. Without wealthy? bowing to private That kind of language interests.” makes me nervous. I know people who pay for private clinics. They are rich, not surprisingly. They like them. The affluent are a small percentage of the population, yet influential. They generously donate to hospitals and to research that serves everyone. Will we get that if the affluent have opted out? That private-care ad supplement also cites a “ticking time bomb” for wait times and includes fear-mongering statistics. Yet the Pivotal clinic bills the public health system and any other private-employer insurance for services. Consider this: It costs $112,000 yearly to educate one medical student at U of C. Of that, $98,000 is chipped in by the taxpayer every year. Will private doctors refund the public purse for their $300,000 plus tuition subsidy? You tell me. Further, the investment comes with freedom to leave and work anywhere. No system is perfect. I’m sure medical staff feel they are worth more. I’d like to see our next premier carefully weigh the advantages of public and private care without ideological rhetoric. Without bowing to private interests. With medical care, we make a collective bet. If there’s an upside to private care for every Albertan, let’s see it. If the public system fails most of us, let’s figure out what it can do and what it can’t. That’s why I think it’s worth it for all Calgarians to pay $5 for a membership, vote for the PC leader and demand clear details about health care.

Russell Peters may have mastered the comedy stage by selling out concerts (including Madison Square Gardens) around the globe but conquering Hollywood has taken a bit longer. “The challenge for me has been getting the right roles,” explained the Toronto native recently. “I’ve been offered a ton of (movie parts) but do I want to play the 7-11 guy or the

I would go out and say I’m very much in the minority for not liking hockey.” Instead, Peters offers that he related to the

film’s central story about a striving first-generation Sikh athlete who must deal with issues of family and identity in discovering his life’s ambition. “It’s really about the immigrant experience and it just happens to circle around this particular group,” said Peters. “But it’s the same story for every first generationer. And even if you’re not a first-generation immigrant family, you can still relate to it — it’s about a guy with a dream.”

All My Children leaves TV He ‘affects me TV execs consider soaps a losing cause, more costly to produce than talk or reality shows and with a dwindling audience Show may continue online CHARLES SYKES/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tissues were on hand but there were few tears among two dozen soap opera fans gathered to watch All My Children sign off from ABC on Friday after more than 40 years. That’s because the screen faded to black with a gunshot and a cliffhanger — an indication that the story may not be dead, even if the television series is. ABC has licensed the story to a production company that is hoping to keep the All My Children going online after the first of next year. Carolyn Hinsey, author of Afternoon Delight: Why Soaps Still Matter, organized a watching party at a Manhattan sports bar as a message to television executives who apparently think soap operas don’t matter anymore. Two of ABC’s three daytime dramas, All My Children and One Life to Live, were cancelled this year. That leaves only four soaps on network television, with General Hospital the only one on ABC when One Life to Live formally leaves in a few months. “The soap fans are still

The big ending The final episode ended with most of the show’s characters together for a party — celebrating engagements, a pregnancy and some medical miracles.

Suspense: The series ended as he fired. Left unseen was who, if anyone, J.R. shot — homage, perhaps, to the famous 1980 Dallas cliffhanger that became known as Who Shot J.R.?

Kane, the soap’s most memorable character, portrayed by Susan Lucci, learned she would not get married again — at least not yet. She saved her final words on television for a promise to keep pursuing her beau even after he told her to have a nice life — without him.

viewers, or television executives, than as part of the story. One example was when actress Debbi Morgan spoke soon after her blind character, Angie Hubbard, had her sight restored. “One day our family and friends will be gone and they won’t be back,” she said. “They’ll be gone for good.

As an actor, Jack Huston works wonders with just half a face, a gravelly, flat voice and cruel difficulty speaking. Fortunately, those afflictions aren’t his but instead are borne by Richard Harrow, the tragically disfigured World War I veteran he plays on the HBO drama Boardwalk Empire. Let the record show that, in a recent interview, the 28-year-old Huston is leading-man handsome, expansive and well-spoken in his native British accent. But he says Harrow is a character “that is part of me, who affects me to my core. There is something so affecting about how brave and how lost he is.” Even with limited screen time on the characterpacked, actor-rich Boardwalk (whose ensemble includes Steve Buscemi, Kelly Macdonald, Gretchen Mol, Dabney Coleman and many more), Harrow last year had a similarly wrenching effect on viewers, haunting them as a combat-maimed conscience in his post-war America and as the ghoulish psychopath a war creates.

Lindsay’s in a relationship — let the drama begin ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Actress is reportedly seeing a New York hotel magnate Rumour has it that she and his wife haven’t really hit it off Lindsay Lohan is reportedly clashing with her rumoured new boyfriend’s estranged wife, according to the New York Post. Lohan is said to be dating New York hotel magnate Vikram Chatwal and even staying at his house, though she was reportedly instructed to make herself scarce before Chatwal’s wife, Priya Sachdev, got back to town. A miffed Lohan then reportedly confronted Chat-

wal at a dinner he was hosting at his hotel. “Priya was very dignified, but Lindsay was so rude,” a source tells the newspaper. “She acted as if she’d had no idea Vikram was married and tried to make it clear that Vikram was her friend. Others had to step in to calm things down.” Lohan’s rep insists the two are not romantically involved.

Is Sarah Palin a

bad mom?

A new book alleges so Parenting expert Tanith Carey shares what moms should do if they’re faced with similar situations

GETTY IMAGES

The Rogue, a controversial new book by journalist Joe McGinniss, paints Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor, as a coke-snorting, sexually loose harridan. It’s unflattering, especially for a mother of five. We shared some of the most-headline-making accusations with Tanith Carey, a family expert, journalist and author of Where Has My Little Girl Gone? Moms out there might find themselves in similar situations. What should they do? Palin may have done drugs in the past The book alleges Palin snorted cocaine off an oil drum during a snowmobiling trip. SAYS CAREY: “If you did

take drugs, explain they always carry the danger that they can make you behave in a way that is out of control, could earn you a criminal record or ruin your career. They also carry the risk of addiction. Explain why and how you made the decision to stop taking them — and make it clear what your attitude is to them now.”

Sarah Palin

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2011

She may have had an affair while married … allegedly with her husband’s business partner, although all parties have denied this. SAYS CAREY: “Children

have keen antennae and it’s very likely they have already guessed there is something wrong, so be honest. Don’t try and justify it — or get them to see your partner as the villain. Expect to face a lot of anger if you are the person who cheated in a marriage, as kids will see it as an abandonment of them, as well as your spouse. But keep them talking.” She may have been sexually promiscuous … allegedly with Miami Heat basketball star Glen Rice. SAYS CAREY: “If you are

asked about your sexual history, the best policy is to be truthful and tell them about your own experiences in an age appropriate way. But also underline how important sex is at its best as part of a meaningful long-term relationship. Explain that it’s never a good idea to use sex to validate yourself or fix an insecurity — as it rarely works.” She would reportedly leave her kids to “fend for themselves” One source reportedly tells McGinniss: “‘I’d walk into that kitchen and Bristol and Willow would be sitting there with a burnt pot of Kraft mac and cheese on the stove … and Sarah would be up in her bedroom with the door closed say-

“If you are asked about your sexual history, the best policy is to be truthful.” TANITH CAREY

ing she didn’t want to be disturbed.’" SAYS CAREY: “Of all the ac-

cusations, this is potentially the most damaging. It is at the serious end of spectrum of accusations that are levelled against mothers. As such, it’s also most likely to cause the most long-term damage to the parentchild relationship because it implies neglect, which goes against all we expect from parents. In Palin’s case, it would very much depend on how often this happened and how old her kids were at the time — and what the risks to them were. But we do live in a society where mothers are expected to wait on kids hand and foot from the tweens and beyond — and that is not good for their independence or selfesteem. Mothers also need to be able to acknowledge that they need down-time too.”

Experts say that leaving your leaves on the lawn is actually good for the health of your grass and trees.

Leaving it alone Find out why it’s better to not get rid of your leaves by bagging them BEN KNIGHT

GREEN@METRONEWS.CA

Welcome to autumn. The leaves are changing, and soon lawns and yards across Canada will be covered with an eye-catching tapestry of orange, red and yellow — that will have to be raked up. Or will it? Leaves are organic. They degrade into rich, useful compost and fertilizer. What happens if we all just … leave the leaves? “The biggest problem is, if the leaves are big, say from a maple tree, they can suffocate the lawn,” says garden expert Jeff Mason, a frequent contributor to Canadian Gardening and other magazines.

In your city

Leaves The City of Calgary composts the fallen leaves it collects, using the mate-

rial to fertilize and enrich soil in the city’s parks and public green spaces. This reduces greenhouse gases released when any organic material is broken down in a landfill. And overall helps the environment.

“Usually what we do with leaves like that is run the lawnmower over them, so they get all chopped up. And then they just stay on the lawn, or they can go into the garden.” No raking, no bags — and especially no hauling them off to the local landfill. “Something in the neighbourhood of 40 per cent of the nutrients that a tree produces in a year are

in those leaves that we rake up and throw away,” says Mason. “If we just allowed the leaves to stay on the ground, or in the garden bed, this is what feeds and fertilizes trees in nature — their falling leaves.” If you happen to like raking, you can also compost leaves by simply making a big pile of them at the back of your yard. They’ll rot down over the winter, and be ready to

nourish your grass, trees and plants come spring. And they won’t even smell bad! “It’s nothing more than the smell of walking through the woods, kicking up leaves,” Mason notes. Compare that to the cost — in money, labour, time and gasoline — of municipal pick-up and composting programs. Your fall leaves are — with little or no effort — free fertilizer for your lawn and garden. “There really isn’t any downside to doing this. The alternative is to pay tree guys to come in ... When you get it explained, it’s really silly that we do this — haul these leaves away, every year.”

SYMPTOMS THAT HAVE KEPT HIM OFF THE ICE SINCE JANUARY. CROSBY TOOK FACEOFFS AND WORKED ON SET PLAYS WITH TEAMMATES IN HIS FIRST FIVE-ON-FIVE ACTION SINCE TRAINING

Patriots no longer Bills’ bully DAVID DUPREY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rian Lindell, bottom, and Brian Moorman celebrate the Bills’ game-winning field goal.

Hold on to your seats, the Buffalo Bills are showing they’re for real. Rian Lindell hit a 28-yard field goal as time expired to cap a stunning comeback for a 34-31 victory over the New England Patriots yesterday. The win snapped Buffalo’s 15-game losing streak against the Patriots that dated to 2003, and sparked a wild celebration in which stadium officials guarded the goal posts to ensure fans didn’t bring them down.

The Bills (3-0) won courtesy of yet another Ryan Fitzpatrick-led rally, overcoming a 21-0 second-quarter deficit. It was reminiscent of what the Bills did last week when they came back from down 21-3 to beat Oakland 38-35. Tom Brady threw for 386 yards and four scores for New England (2-1) and set a league record for most yards passing over a threegame stretch, but matched a career-high four interceptions.

Around the NFL

In other action yesterday: The New York Giants (2-1) took advantage of the Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) with Michael Vick injured again. Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes, and the Giants beat the Eagles 29-16. Vick, who start-

ed after suffering a concussion last week, left with a broken right hand in the fourth quarter. Matthew Stafford threw for 378 yards and two TDs to rally the Lions (3-0) from a 20-0 deficit before Jason Hanson kicked a 32-yard field goal in overtime as Detroit beat the Minnesota Vikings (0-3) 26-23. Cam Newton didn’t pass for a ton of yards, he simply found Greg Olsen over the middle for a 16-yard TD with 4:20 left to lift Carolina (1-2) to a 16-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2).
