Fans get ready to kick off football season Training camp. Eskimos fans keeping close eye on quarterback position

Football’s faithful came out wearing green and gold to the Edmonton Eskimos’ first day of training camp at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday. And while those who speckled the stands are excited, some have concerns about the 2012 CFL season.

“I’m apprehensive about this team — especially the quarterback position,” said season seat holder Dana Gray, who was there with his wife, Holly. The team traded longtime Eskimo Ricky Ray to the Toronto Argonauts back in December. “We lost Ricky Ray, it’s a scary thing,” said a fan named Darren, who withheld his last name. “But there are lots of good players on the team.” Having not missed a game in seven years, Darren has noticed how much the team has changed, especially heading into this season.

“This is the start,” he said. “We’re going to support our boys.” While looking forward to the preseason followed by “playing for real” to weed out the “pretenders from the contenders,” Gray feels the same way. “(Eskimos’ general manager Eric) Tillman keeps saying ‘trust me,’” he said. “So I guess we’ll trust him.” Training camp continues for a week, with the team’s first preseason game, in Calgary, on June 15. The season opener is on June 30, when Ray and the Argonauts visit Edmonton.

Literacy + jobs

Second term takes flight in fall The first term of the Water Wings Literacy and Employment Readiness Program wraps up at the end of this month, and program co-ordinator Joe Pillay is already looking forward to a second. Since the beginning of February, clients at Boyle Street Community Services have received free help writing resumes and essays, career counselling, and information on dressing for interviews and solving conflict in the workplace. Also, a deal with the Alberta Distance Learning Centre allows them to work on any needed courses at their own speed and take exams without having to come up with $700 for an online class, said Pillay. “To really help get the people we’re working with out of poverty, it’s necessary,” he said. “Getting a job makes a very big difference.” First-term funding came from the Alberta government, Epcor and the Rotary Club, and Pillay was recently notified of more funds from Epcor, as well as a grant from the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation — making a second five-month term possible come September. When in session, the weekday program is easy to drop in on between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. “We have a transient clientele, so if we have a program that is also transient, the two should never meet,” said Pillay. “And as word spreads, we’re expecting to see even more clients.”

Delivering pizza isn’t something Jose Espinoza-Torres had done before. In fact, the 50-year-old wasn’t sure of his options when he enrolled in the Water Wings Literacy and Employment Readiness Program at Boyle Street Community Services earlier this year.


But what it got him was a job. “I’m very happy,” he told Metro. “And this place, it’s a good environment.” In four months, more than 100 clients have enrolled and 20 have found jobs, said program co-ordinator Joe Pillay. “Many of our programs deal with providing social assistance, providing food in the drop-in, providing safety in terms of needles,” said Pillay. “Ours is a program where we want to be able to help you get what you want. It’s different in that respect.” Online upgrading courses had been on offer but

weren’t overly successful, as those with limited literacy and resources don’t have the time or money to take that route, explained Pillay. “Because the unemployment rate in this community averages over 80 per cent, we thought that providing an employment program would be useful,” he said. “There are other employment programs but we work with the people that don’t probably fit those programs.” That was the case for Espinoza-Torres, who “ended up with the wrong crowd” after moving from Mexico. “I’ve been here for 25 years and this program was the best thing that ever

Leduc RCMP have charged a parolee recently released from prison for fleeing on foot after he crashed his vehicle into a lamp post and fence on Highway 2 north of Highway 19 on May 30. Police dogs tracked down Nadir Kassam, 53, of Edmonton, who was passed out in a ditch one kilometre away. metro

Organizers of this year’s gay pride festival in Edmonton are calling the news that Premier Alison Redford will attend a “milestone.” Festival spokesman Terry Harris says that to his knowledge, no Alberta premier has accepted an invitation before. Redford’s official itinerary for next week states the premier will greet the Edmonton Pride Festival on Saturday afternoon in Sir Winston Churchill Square, which is in front of city hall. Harris says the event in the square immediately follows the

annual pride parade. During the provincial election campaign in April, an online video surfaced of Opposition Wildrose Party candidate Allan Hunsperger claiming homosexuals would burn in a lake of fire. Redford said at the time that if Hunsperger was a Progressive Conservative, she would have removed him from her team. The Canadian Press

Manhunt on after Magnotta apparently spotted in France Body-parts case. French newspaper reports police were able to trace suspect’s itinerary through cellphone activity The suspect in the gruesome killing and dismemberment of a Chinese student in Montreal was spotted in France over the weekend but police aren’t ruling out the possibility he could still be on the move. Montreal police confirmed Sunday that Luka Rocco Magnotta was in the European country as recently as Friday. “The man was seen in France, that’s what French authorities told us,” police spokesman Ian Lafreniere told reporters. Lafreniere cautioned that Magnotta may no longer be in France, and wouldn’t rule out the possibility he had since returned to Canada or headed elsewhere in Europe. “He’s someone who has been known to travel, so we’re not taking any chances and we want to keep an open mind,” Lafreniere said. “We’ve received more than 360 tips — it’s huge, people really want to help.”

Murder victim Jun Lin facebook

Magnotta, 29, is wanted in the slaying of Jun Lin, 33, who was a student at Montreal’s Concordia University. Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase that had been left out for garbage collection outside Magnotta’s Montreal apartment last week. Other severed body parts, including a hand and a foot, were mailed to the offices of political parties in Ottawa. French media reported Sunday that personal belongings of the porn actor were found in a hotel in suburban Paris. The reports said police discovered pornographic magazines as well as air-sickness bags from the flight he took to Paris from Montreal. Police believe Magnotta fled to France on May 26. the canadian press

Toronto police search for gunman Military. Tories redraw defence spending The investigation into a deadly shooting rampage that set off a mass panic at the Toronto Eaton Centre focused Sunday on the shooter behind the brazen attack, as police and local authorities reassured the public that Toronto remains a safe city. Police confirmed that Saturday’s shooting at one of Canada’s busiest shopping malls — which killed one and injured seven others — was a targeted act. Investigators said the man who was killed, identified as Ahmed Hassan, 24, of Toronto, had known gang ties. At least one of the victims may also have gang connections, police said. “It may be that both of them have gang affiliations ... but we do believe that our deceased in this case may have had some gang affiliation,” said Det. Sgt. Brian Borg. Police sounded confident they know the identity of the gunman, but did not elaborate, saying they did not want to influence first-hand accounts still pouring in a day after the attack. Investigators were reviewing security video in their hunt for the shooter and interviewing witnesses who were

among the hundreds of people in the downtown shopping mall when the gunfire erupted, causing panicked shoppers to charge toward the exit in a wild pandemonium. Seven people suffered either gunshot wounds or injuries in the stampede. The most seriously injured was a 23-year-old man who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his neck and chest. He remained in hospital in critical condition. A 13-year-old boy who was visiting Toronto with his family

multiple sources have told The Canadian Press. Although Defence Minister Peter MacKay describes the hallmark plan as a “living document,” the reset comes at a time when the government has been hammered politically over the F-35 stealth fighter. Defence sources say there is a baseline expectation that the promises made in the ori-

ginal 2008 document will be mostly kept, but whether the government will be buying in the quantities outlined at the height of the Afghan war is another matter. Insiders believe that a redrafted wish list will take some of the bite out of opposition attacks and restore public confidence rattled by the F-35. the canadian press

Queen celebrates Diamond Jubilee on the River Thames London. More than one million spectators line riverbanks in the rain to salute Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the throne The River Thames became a royal highway Sunday, as Queen Elizabeth II led a motley but majestic flotilla of more than 1,000 vessels in a waterborne pageant to mark her Diamond Jubilee. In a colourful salute to the island nation’s maritime past, an armada of skiffs and sailboats, rowboats and paddle steamers joined a flowerfestooned royal barge down an 11-kilometre stretch of London’s river. With a crowd of rainsoaked spectators estimated by organizers at 1.25 million, the pageant was the largest public event in four days of celebrations of the monarch’s 60 years on the throne. On Monday the queen will join thousands of revellers at an outdoor concert beside Buckingham Palace, headlined by pop royalty including Paul McCartney and Elton John. With any luck, the weather will improve. Sunday was dismal, with rain scuttling plans for a ceremonial fly past, but that didn’t stop Union Jackwaving spectators forming a red, white and blue wave along the pageant route.


Not everyone in Britain was celebrating. Hundreds of antimonarchists held a riverbank protest to oppose the wave of jubilee mania — though their chants were quickly countered by renditions of God Save the Queen from pageant-goers. • “People are sick and

tired of being told they must celebrate 60 years of one very privileged, very remote and very uninspiring head of state,” said Graham Smith of the anti-monarchist group Republic. “The hereditary system is offensive to all the democratic values this country has fought for in the past.”

The 86-year-old queen wore a silver and white dress and matching coat — embroidered with gold, silver and ivory spots and embellished with Swarovski crystals to evoke the river — for her trip aboard the barge Spirit of Chartwell, decorated for the occasion in regal red, gold and purple velvet. The queen travelled down a river transformed during her reign from the commercial and industrial heart of London to a much cleaner playground for tourists and pleasure craft. the associated press

Not cricket. Actor says he’s sorry for calling sport ‘gay’ Actor Jason Alexander has apologized for joking during a TV talk show that he considers cricket to be a “gay” sport. In a blog post, the former Seinfeld star explained Sunday what led to his remark on CBS’s Late Late Show. He writes that he at first didn’t grasp why some might object to the comment, but subsequent conversations with his gay friends led him to realize his insensitivity. Alexander’s remarks came

in Friday’s show in which he tells host Craig Ferguson that aspects of cricket make it a “gay game” compared to other sports. The actor’s 1,000-word-plus “message of amends” says that the joking remark plays into “hurtful assumptions and diminishments” about people. He also writes that as an actor with many gay friends, he “should know better.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

They say Transportation Safety Board investigators continue to remove wreckage from the crash site. Bailey Helicopters has confirmed that one of the pilots killed in the crash was 45-yearold Peter Bryant. Police say they have now identified all three men killed in the crash but won’t confirm their identities until next of kin have been notified. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sexy safe-driving ads crash, burn with women’s advocates ‘Bridget’. Face of Halifax Harbour Bridges’ ad campaign offending feminist organizations Some say she’s a confident, crime-fighting avenger, devoted to protecting drivers in Atlantic Canada’s largest city. Oh, and she does it while looking good in heels. But others say “Bridget” — the fictional face of a sexy, safe-driving ad campaign in Halifax — is an offensive stereotype that succeeds only in insulting men and degrading women. In particular, the campaign has crashed and burned with women’s rights advocates, who argue women have for too long been objectified in advertising and the media. “We were quite surprised

and disappointed with the approach,” said Irene Smith, executive director of the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre, a feminist organization in Halifax. “It just seems to me that it’s offensive to many, many women who’ve experienced any form of sexual violence or harassment or been subjected to sexist jokes and innuendoes.” Halifax Harbour Bridges launched the campaign May 14 to raise awareness of speeding, tailgating and texting while driving on the two bridges that span the city’s harbour. “We wanted to have a campaign that’s a little humorous, tongue-in-cheek, and we also wanted the messages to come from a person and not an organization,” said communications manager Alison MacDonald, adding the commission wanted to get people’s attention with “a strong, female character.” The canadian Press

Creating a stir

• Among her tantalizing Twitter posts is one telling followers, “You know I like it when you go slow.” • Halifax Harbour Bridges is

a commission of the Nova Scotia government, but receives no funding from taxpayers. The $50,000 campaign was funded by bridge tolls, said communications manager Alison MacDonald.

Quebec protests. Threats force Canadian GP to scrap open house day Protester threats have forced organizers of the Canadian Grand Prix to cancel the free opening day of the event. Formula One fans were to have had access to Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve at the open house event Thursday. Instead the event was scrapped due to security concerns. Francois Dumontier, president of the Canadian GP, said in a statement Sunday that organizers had no choice in the cancellation. “Considering the various disruption threats made public recently, the free admission and the naturally (open) character of the open house day, revealed some risks that we could not neglect,” said Dumontier. “Under these circumstances, cancelling the open house day was the only action we could take. Unfortunately, for the fans and our spectators, it was impossible to escape from such responsibility.” The student group CLASSE has suggested the race be used as a platform for the demonstrations over tuition fees.

An anti-capitalist group known as CLAC has promised to hold disruptive demonstrations leading up to the race. The online activist group Anonymous is also being investigated by Montreal police for an email threat sent to more than 100 people with tickets to the June 10 race.

Vatican leaks continue despite butler’s arrest Holy See. Weekend visit to Milan was meant to show Pope Benedict is still firmly in charge Pope Benedict XVI celebrated an open-air mass for one million cheering faithful Sunday, capping a weekend visit to Milan viewed as a respite from a Vatican scandal, but fresh leaks of Holy See documents have only fuelled the intrigue. If the new leaks are authentic, the development could indicate that the recent arrest of the Pope’s butler might not have stemmed the scandal as top Holy See officials had hoped. The three-day visit to Milan during a weekend of Catholic events meant to boost support for families was also an opportunity for the 85-year-old pontiff to show he is still firmly at the helm of his church. On Sunday, Benedict announced that he hoped to go to Philadelphia in 2015 for a similar

But the leaks continued even during his trip, with the daily La Repubblica publishing documents on Sunday it said it received despite the butler’s arrest. One of the letters was a high prelate’s complaint that he had not been consulted on the approval of a liturgy for a Catholic group in Spain, while two others reportedly bear the signature of the Pope’s secretary.

Trayvon Martin shooter surrenders to police George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer charged with murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, surrendered to police Sunday and was booked into jail after having his bail revoked two days earlier. Zimmerman’s legal team said in a tweet that he was in police custody. Zimmerman’s bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond. On Sunday afternoon, about 40 minutes before the 2:30 p.m. deadline to surrender, Zimmerman was listed as an inmate on the jail website. He was listed as being held without bail and having $500 US in his jail account. Prosecutors had said Zimmerman and his wife told the judge at a bond hearing in April that they had limited money, even though he had raised about $135,000 through a website. Defence attorneys said the matter was a misunderstanding. Attorney Mark O’Mara announced earlier Sunday on his website that Zimmerman had arrived in Florida late Saturday evening ahead of his surrender. Zimmer-

Jet crashes into crowded Nigeria neighbourhood, killing 153 onboard Deadly accident. Challenges of life in Nigeria underscored — not enough water available to douse smouldering wreckage A commercial airliner crashed into a densely populated neighbourhood in Nigeria’s largest city, killing all 153 people on board and others on the ground in the worst air disaster in nearly two decades for the troubled nation. The cause of the Dana Air crash was unknown Sunday, as firefighters and police in Lagos struggled to put out the flames around the wreckage of the Boeing MD83 aircraft. Authorities could not control the crowd of thousands gathered around to see the crash site, with some crawling over the plane’s broken wings and standing on a still-smouldering landing gear. Harold Demuren, the dir-

ector-general of Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority, said all on board the flight were killed in the crash. Lagos state government said in a statement that 153 people were on the flight travelling from Nigeria’s central capital of Abuja to Lagos in the nation’s southwest. The flight’s pilots radioed to the Lagos control tower just before the crash, saying the plane had engine trouble, a military official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to journalists. Rescue officials feared many others were killed or injured on the ground, but no casualty figures were immediately available. Firefighters and local residents were seen carrying the corpse of a man from one building, its walls still crumbling and flames shooting from its roof more than an hour after the crash. President Goodluck Jonathan later declared three days of national mourning in Africa’s most populous nation. the associated press

Turks protest plan to curb abortion Thousands of demonstrators on Sunday staged the largest protest yet against plans by Turkey’s Islamic-rooted government to curb abortion, which critics say will amount to a virtual ban. Around 3,000 women, ranging from around 20 to 60 years old, gathered at a square in Istanbul’s Kadikoy district. Some carried banners that read “My body, my choice” and shouted anti-government slogans. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called abortion “murder,” and his government is reportedly working on legislation to ban the operation after four weeks from conception, exSerbia

3 dead in Serbian nightclub blast A man blew up the entrance to a packed Serbian nightclub with a hand grenade after he was refused admission early Sunday, killing himself, a friend and a bystander, and injuring eight others, police and state media said.

Fusun Sirkeci, a Londonbased obstetrician and gynecologist, said in an email Saturday that most women don’t learn they are pregnant until after four weeks and it is also difficult to establish the placement of the pregnancy sac during that period. Abortion is presently legal in Turkey up to 10 weeks from conception. “They say it is my body, my choice. Feminists say this,” Erdogan said Saturday during a rally in the country’s southeast. “No one has the right to abort a fetus in a body.” Analysts say Erdogan is pursuing a delicate strategy of beefing up Turkey’s regionman and one of his friends were among those killed. It said he activated the grenade after he and three of his friends were refused entry by the club’s security. Three of the injured were reportedly in serious condition. Such incidents are not unusual in Serbia as the Balkan wars of the 1990s have left hand grenades and firearms relatively easily available. Police said the nightclub was open illegally as it had previously been ordered to close due to inadequate fire-control standards. the associated press

Sirkeci said any ban would also create an illegal market for abortions, and have a huge psychological impact on women. the associated press

Interest rate hike? Experts think not Economic outlook. Friday’s report on Canadian GDP showed a 1.9 per cent growth, well below the central bank’s April call for a 2.5 per cent advance Is the next move for Mark Carney to cut interest rates? The question would have seemed unthinkable a few weeks ago given that the Bank of Canada governor’s last pronouncement on the subject was to issue a wink and a nudge about coming hikes. The signal-sending language — “some modest withdrawal of the present considerable monetary policy surplus may be appropriate” — contained in the April interestsetting statement sent markets into speculation hyper-drive that rates could be heading north as early as the summer. Tuesday’s upcoming announcement was never in play and isn’t in play now. Economists are as unanimous as can be that Carney will keep the policy rate

The provincial premiers have undertaken a letter-writing campaign to demand compensation from the federal government for any increase in drug costs that might come of a free trade agreement with Europe.

moored at one per cent a little while longer. But now the speculation has turned full circle about the nature of the next move, whenever it comes. “The state of the world is increasingly making clear that a rate hike at this point would be premature,” said Avery Shenfeld, chief economist with CIBC World Markets. The revived crisis in Greece, the growing banking crisis in Spain, unresolved debt problems in Italy and Portugal, had already lengthened the odds on Carney moving this fall, and likely made him regret his April assessment that Europe’s crisis had moved from “the acute to the chronic.” the canadian press

Buffett hopes lunch auction raises big bucks It’s true that Warren Buffett hired the hedge fund manager who won the last two private lunches with him that are part of an annual auction, but he doesn’t expect the event to become a recruiting tool for Berkshire Hathaway. Rather, Buffett says it’s miraculous that he found one of Berkshire’s two new invest-

ment managers through the lunch. He offered Ted Weschler a job after he’d paid nearly $5.3 million over two years to dine with Buffett. Buffett said he just hopes the 13th annual online auction will again raise a significant amount of money for the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco. Bidding begins Sunday on eBay and continues into Friday evening. Most of the big bids tend to arrive late in the auction. the associated press

Corey Hart’s comeback a point of ‘pride’ for singer Remix. Sunglasses at Night singer gets inspired to remake Truth Will Set You Free and bring its gay-positive message to the forefront When Corey Hart included Truth Will Set You Free on his 1988 album Young Man Running, few among his legions of fans likely realized that the song was intended as a gaypositive anthem of affirmation for anyone struggling with his or her sexuality. For one thing, the Montrealborn pop star wanted it that way. He was intentionally cryptic in the lyrics of the soaring tune, couching the true meaning of its be-yourself-at-all-costs mantra in subtext. The reason for the secrecy? Hart wanted to protect the close friend who had inspired the song, someone whose sexuality was a source of self-doubt and pain. Now, Hart is issuing a dance floor-friendly remix of the tune, one which swaps the contemplative soft-rock of the original for an icy club groove and pulls those themes that coursed under the original’s surface to the fore with new lyrics inspired, in part, by the 1998 murder of gay university student Matthew Shepard. And to make positively sure those newly prominent themes resonate, Hart — who willingly receded from the musical spotlight to raise his children — will mark his first Canadian performance in a decade during Toronto’s Pride festival. “The gay aspect of this song was an important message that I wanted to send out there, especially being a straight man

— I thought it was important to say this,” he added. “It was important for me to be at a gay pride event and to go out there and sing the song, and spread the message of the song.” But it certainly wasn’t a typical journey to get to this point. The idea to re-record his 24-year-old song began with an unsolicited email request from a DJ whom Hart had never heard of. 1Love — whose real name is Paul Todd — wasn’t writing in regard to either Sunglasses at Night or Never Surrender. Hart was intrigued, but it wasn’t until he got to know Todd that he became persuaded to revisit the track. Todd was just a music lover from Kingston, Ont., who was driving a cab at night to support his four kids. Even though Hart was initially a “little put off” with Todd’s first attempt at tackling a new version of the song, their personalities clicked. By then, Hart had made up his mind to issue his first single in 12 years. Hart felt that Todd’s early remix didn’t have enough musicality to it, so he sent it to musician friends in Toronto and Montreal who added textures until the gleaming song found its pulse. Perhaps more important to Hart was the opportunity to re-record his vocals with new lyrics. “I felt (it was) necessary to take the song much further than I had in 1988,” Hart said.

William Shatner’s weird world Where no man has gone before. The 81-year-old icon gears up for another season of Weird or What? From hosting the Junos in Ottawa to a multi-city U.S. tour of his Broadway show, William Shatner has been a man on the move for much of 2012 with a red-hot career that leaves little time for respite. The week ahead is no exception as the Canadian pop culture icon prepares to head to Johannesburg for work with plans to eke out a few days for a photographic safari in the interior. “I’m really excited by that. What I’m not excited about is a 22-hour airplane ride,” the affable actor said candidly from his home in Los Angeles. Despite his stacked schedule, the tireless 81-year-old

continues to have a hands-on role with William Shatner’s Weird or What? which is back for a third season beginning today at 10 p.m. ET on History Television. Shatner is host and executive producer of the series which explores truelife tales of the unknown and unexplainable, and features first-person accounts, expert commentary and reconstructions of the mysterious events in question. In addition to narrating Weird or What? and delivering tongue-in-cheek quips onscreen, Shatner said he’s active behind the scenes, consulting on stories and looking at scripts. “It’s more than just a couple of weeks of working on the show as the wraparound. I’m intimately involved in the show, so there’s no telling how much time that takes,” he said. Tonight’s spine-tingling episode chronicles real-life accounts of human encounters

with beastly creatures, including a New Jersey mother and son seeing the fabled Jersey Devil. The “massively interesting” stories featured on Weird or What all pique the interest of the inquisitive Shatner. Even as he peruses scripts, Shatner said he tries to seek out his own explanations for unusual happenings. He’s also fascinated by the notions of multiple

and alternate universes and the bending of time. “Since we know nothing and everything is mysterious, the explanations for mysterious events assume an even more unknown quantity,” said Shatner. “So we try to explain scientifically what may have happened in a mysterious event, but we can’t be sure that that is the explanation.” The Canadian Press

Shatner’s Canuck side

Pining for poutine William Shatner, a Montreal native, admits he hankers for poutine while away from his hometown, and said he’d relish the chance

to take on more work in Canada. “I love to work in Canada. It’s beautiful, and the people are great and the crews have become wonderful,” he said. “I hope to work in Canada a lot.”

We’re finally worried about Charlie Sheen the word

Monica Weymouth

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo DiCaprio better off without Baywatch: Hasselhoff Baywatch may have been a huge success for David Hasselhoff, but he thinks at least one movie star is better off for not getting a part on the series. Leonardo DiCaprio auditioned for the role of Hasselhoff ’s son — a part that eventually went to Jeremy Jackson — according Movieline. “You know what, it was the best thing to happen to Leonardo DiCaprio,” Hasselhoff says. “I saw Leonardo DiCaprio and I said, ‘You know what, that was the best thing


“It was the best thing to happen to Leonardo DiCaprio” David Hasselhoff On Leonardo DiCaprio not getting a role on Baywatch

that ever happened to you! You would have never gotten Titanic and have been this big star. You’d be like Jeremy Jackson and David Hasselhoff, looking for work.’”

Brooke Mueller has landed herself back in rehab, but the situation might not be as bad as it seems. Despite a history of drug abuse and saying “I do” to Charlie Sheen, the sometimes-actress’ lawyers say the stay is a perfectly routine “pre-planned event,” and that reports of a crack-cocaine binge with her ex-husband are entirely false. For his part, Sheen doesn’t know who he agrees with just yet — but that doesn’t mean he won’t attempt to talk about it. Here’s his statement on the matter to TMZ: “I can’t speak to anyone’s opinion or judgement. I was there, they were not, their tepid hearsay is a baseless static drone. “A mantra, their theme. I refuse to be held hostage by their ‘constitutional’ privilege, to judge those who can and who do. nabobs. CS” It took a while, but we are finally confused by the choices of Charlie Sheen. This man is a professional Drunkest Guy Last Night, and yet this is the statement he releases?

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber takes a backstage tumble Charlie, this is familiar territory: sleep in, take a shower, throw on a little bronzer and surface in gym clothes with a leafy bag from Whole Foods. This showing-up-to-breakfastin-sunglasses stuff is for amateurs. Has he learned nothing? When asked who will play him in the inevitable biopic, Bill Clinton generously settled on George Clooney during an interview on Piers Morgan Tonight. Now, as for Hillary? He’d like to cast Meryl Streep. We think this was a compliment, but Bill, trust us: assuming you’re still around for a next time, the answer you are looking for here is “Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron or a young Heidi Klum.”

Justin Bieber is recovering from a possible concussion and a bruised ego after walking into a glass wall backstage at a Paris concert, according to TMZ. The singer returned to the stage to finish his set, but he reportedly lost consciousness briefly backstage after the show. Local doctors diagnosed him with a concussion. Bieber is taking it well, though,

posting on Twitter, “Just smacked my head and needed some water. All good. I’m Canadian. We are tough.” This isn’t the first time Bieber has been fooled by the translucent nature of glass walls and doors. Online video clips show him walking into the glass partition of a revolving door in 2010 and a glass wall at a radio station office later that year.

Amy Winehouse’s property up for sale Amy Winehouse’s family is taking another step in moving on after their daughter’s death 10 months ago, putting the singer’s London home up for sale, according to Reuters. “The Winehouse’s have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret,” a family spokesperson says. “Amy

loved that house, but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it and it was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep.” The home, which was previously intended to be the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, is being offered for $4.2 million.

Got a big family? Here’s how to save time and money Have a daughter? Don’t cut her bangs. Once you start cutting bangs, you’re a slave to trimming them. Don’t buy bikes with white wheels. If you get your princess a pink bike with white wheels, little brother may be reluctant to take it on when sister

outgrows it. Sacrifice glitter and ribbons for a good hand-me-down situation. Have your babies close in age. This year, I had three kids on the SAME hockey team. This means only one rink at one time. Don’t cheap out on big-ticket items. If you buy your first kid a cheap bike, it’s not going to get through the rest of your clan. You’re better off buying top-quality baby products and sports equipment. JULIE COLE/YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

Father’s Day gift: The 52 Reasons I Love You Jar

Having lots of kids means lots of opportunities to save. ISTOCK IMAGES

Looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift? The 52 Reasons I Love You Jar is a great idea! This is a threeingredient activity that kids can make as a gift for Dad — that keeps giving. Grab a jar, paper and crayons. Have your child write out 52 hand-written


notes using the prompt “I love you because …” (I love you because you take me to soccer, I love you because you tell fart jokes, I love you because you read to me ...) Drop them into the jar. Dad can choose one note each week for the next year. This activity gives kids an opportunity to think about why Dad is special. It’s a great way for kids to practice handwriting and brainstorming. And it’s free! CAROLINE FERNANDEZ/ YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

When yes is better than no First response. Saying no comes naturally when children ask for anything outside of the master plan, but it can stifle development JENNIFER KOLARI

“Mommy, let’s have a picnic lunch under the dining room table. “Why would we do that when we have a table?” I said without even looking up from my emails and piled-up paperwork. “Why not?” asked my daughter. I tore myself away from the screen to look at her. She was flushed with excitement. Even the ends of her hair seemed to be electrified as she bounced from foot to foot, imploring me with her cockeyed smile “Sure, let’s do it!” I said. She was surprised by my answer. We ate, played games and giggled, and I was a much happier woman than I would have been had I remained hunched over my computer. “Thank you,” I said to my daughter. “For what, Mommy?”

“For taking me on a picnic,” I said. “Well, you should thank yourself, too. You’re the one who said yes.” Parents usually go to “no” as a first response when their children ask for anything outside the master plan. “No, I don’t want you to build a cushion fort in the living room right now; it makes a huge mess.” I’ve done it. But if a child wants to build a fort or engage in any other activity that promises a transient mess, why not let him or her? Your little one has an idea and exploring ideas is such an integral ingredient of our kids’ development. How else are they going to figure out what works or how to solve their own problems? Saying “no” comes naturally because we think doing so is without consequences. We’re wrong. Not only do we limit our children’s personal possibilities, we also compromise many opportunities to bond with them and to show them a different side of ourselves. So, next time, consider going straight to “yes.” I guarantee the experience will be as satisfying and memorable for you as if you had planned the whole thing yourself.

Weird baby names get even weirder

Bear, Tupac and Chardonnay are just a few of the wackiest baby names from last year. ISTOCK IMAGES

The folks at Nameberry compiled the hundred wackiest monikers from the last year. We’re talking weird — from the future troublemakers Capone and Juvenal, to Mother Nature’s son, Cougar, Fox and Bear. Not to mention the badasses, Tank and Notorious, Marvellous, Famous and Tupac. For cultural trends, it’s Mad Men all the way, with six Draper kids released into the world. Homage to the late Dirty Dancer, Swayze. And Elvis is back (if he ever went

away), as are the corresponding names Graceland, Presley and Memphis. The Royal wedding appears to have left its mark, as the absurdly conjoined Princewilliam, Princemichael and Sircharles will attest. While the calendar has historically provided baby name inspiration (April, June), it saw some new twists, including Tomorrow, Evening and Future. Oh, and intoxicants featured, too: Tequila, Chardonnay and (I kid you not) Abeer. JULIE GREEN/YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

3 LIFE Health

Caesarean births linked to child obesity New research published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood claims that C-sections may double the risk of childhood obesity. Big news, considering that around one in three babies are born this way in Canada. The study followed 1,255 mothers and babies between 1999 and 2002. The babies were weighed at birth, six months and age three. Around one in four were C-sections, and those babies tended to weigh more than those from vaginal births. According to researchers, there is the “difference in the composition of gut bacteria acquired at birth between the two delivery methods.” Apparently babies born by C-section have more Firmicutes bacteria and fewer Bacteroides bacteria in their guts. (Obese people have higher levels of Firmicutes bacteria.) It is believed that gut bacteria influences insulin resistance, inflammation and fat deposits. Another good reason to avoid elective, non-emergency Caesarean births. JULIE GREEN YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

Seeking sustainability — in space Space mining. Harvesting minerals and other substances from near-Earth asteroids a new possibility

By the numbers


The number of mineral-rich asteroids close to Earth that spacecraft can reach using less energy than a trip to the moon.

Ben knight

It’s a fact of life in the space age. As vital resources become depleted on Earth, an infinite, inexhaustible treasure trove awaits us — from beyond. Space mining, the harvesting of minerals and other substances from nearEarth asteroids, has traditionally been the realm of science fiction. But now, an innovative company of opportunists is actually trying to make this happen. “Everything is science fiction, right up to the point where it’s science fact,” says Chris Lewicki, president and chief engineer of Planetary Resources. “Our approach is to keep our eye on the goal of space resources, and the develop-

ment of an economy off the planet. There are a number of things that really have only coalesced in the last few years that I think make this a great time to be considering this challenge.” Fuelling this is the discovery of literally thou-

sands of near-Earth asteroids in the past decade. These space-borne hunks contain huge amounts of iron and water, as well as valuable rare metals such as platinum. “These asteroids have only a very slight amount of

gravity,” Lewicki explains. “You don’t really orbit them as much as you dock with them — like a space craft visiting the International Space Station. The ability to leave that asteroid also doesn’t take much energy.” Space exploration re-

quires metal and water in abundance. But they’re heavy, and it costs tens of thousands of dollars to lift even one pound of material from Earth into space. The short-term goal of asteroid mining is to reach for the stars with

materials that are already out there. “We can take something as basic as water, and turn it into rocket fuel. And the ability to refuel in space will be critically important for travelling around the solar system. And the iron you find in space is so pure, it has many of the properties of stainless steel.” This is a whole new level of sustainability — a long-term future built without relying on Earthbound resources. “We’re looking to make space exploration common place,” Lewicki says. “We’ll end up with a prospecting spacecraft in Earth’s orbit — maybe as soon as five years from now.” For more info:


Raising the roof: What green top would best suit your household? Queen of green

Lindsay Coulter

What are some green roofing options? Shannon of Calgary

First, dispose of the old roofing materials. I’m guessing you have asphalt shingles. In Canada, about 1.25 million tonnes of asphaltbased roofing materials are discarded each year. But asphalt shingles are recyclable. Before you hire a roofing contractor, ask if your old shingles will be recycled. For smaller doit-yourself jobs, look for a construction waste recycling depot near you. Benefits of green roofs include lower cooling costs and minimizing rain-water runoff

istock photo

Benefits of metal roofs:

• Recyclable and often made with recycled content (steel and aluminum) • Highly durable, up to 100 years but the screws will only last 25 years • Can be installed over asphalt shingles • Reflect more energy = lower cooling costs in summer • Ideal for water collection; i.e., rain barrels Avoid copper roofs, which take a lot of energy to make and create pollution. Also avoid zinc to treat rust; instead, request a powder coating. Finally, ensure your aluminum roof has a baked-on resin that meets national drinking water standards to avoid contaminating runoff. Benefits of recycled rubber roofs: • They’re often made from old tires! • Very durable (50 years) The biggest problems are

off-gassing, contamination of rainwater and heat absorption from the black colour (increasing your cooling bill in summer). Benefits of green roofs (plants growing over a waterproof membrane): • Lower cooling costs by 50 to 90 per cent • Minimize rainwater runoff • Act as a carbon sink • Reduce the urban heat island effect (cities regularly reach higher temperatures than the surrounding landscape because of the extra solar energy they absorb) Today, this is cost prohibitive for most homeowners — starting at $18 a square foot. However, they are becoming more popular on commercial buildings with flat roofs due to their insulating properties, durability, stormwater mitigation and more.

Canada holds U.S. to a draw in friendly

Woods matches Nicklaus for wins

Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer and Drew Hutchison pitched seven effective innings as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre.

Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas confirmed Sunday on his Facebook page he will sit out next season. Thomas says he plans to focus on “friends, family and faith.” NHL

Facing CONCACAF powerhouse United States in a friendly at BMO Field Sunday night, the Canadians adopted a defence-first stance to keep a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw before 15,247 fans.

Tiger Woods picked the right place to match Jack Nicklaus for career PGA Tour wins, and with a shot that even left Nicklaus amazed. Two shots behind with three holes to play, and his ball in an impossible spot





behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot from 50 feet away that turned bogey into birdie and sent him on his way to a stunning comeback Sunday in the Memorial. It was his fifth win at Muirfield Village, and the 73rd of his PGA Tour career to match Nicklaus at No. 2 all-time. Sam Snead won a record 82 times. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rondo’s hot hand draws Celtics even with Heat NHL. Boston and Miami go to overtime for second time in this series Rajon Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists, and scored the final three points of the Boston Celtics’ 93-91 overtime victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday night that evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece. Getting a huge break when LeBron James fouled out for the first time since joining the Heat, the Celtics recovered after blowing an 18-point lead in regulation to move two games away from a third trip to the NBA finals in five years. Kevin Garnett added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics, while Paul Pierce scored 23 points before fouling out. Ray Allen finished with 16 points. “Stops,” Rondo said when asked what was the difference in the tight game. “I think we executed offensively, came up with some lucky plays and we got stops at the end.” James had 29 points and Dwyane Wade scored 20 after another dismal start for the Heat, who host Game 5 on

Tuesday. In a game that started as a Celtics blowout and turned into a foul- and tension-filled fourth quarter, followed by the second overtime in this series, the Celtics held on when Wade missed a potential winning 3-pointer on the last possession. “We knew they were going to Wade. I wanted to check him,” Rondo said. “They set a great pick.... We’re lucky we got a stop.” Mickael Pietrus drew James’ sixth foul and grabbed two huge offensive rebounds that extended consecutive possessions for the Celtics, who lost Game 4 in overtime in a second-round series against the Heat last year with a chance to tie the series. This time, they overcame their second-half stall on the offensive end to give themselves by limiting the Heat to just one basket in overtime, by Udonis Haslem. THE CANADIAN PRESS

SPORTS Belmont Stakes

“It’s all about the horse. As long as the horse is going great, we’re all doing good. If he was battling and then I was getting a lot of stuff from other areas, it would be difficult. As long as he’s doing good, everything else is just talk.” Doug O’Neill, the trainer of Canadian-owned I’ll Have Another, is learning just how difficult it is to avoid all the roadblocks as he prepares his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner for a chance to become the first Triple Crown champion in 34 years. The 44-year-old trainer shrugs off — at least publicly — the criticism thrown his way for numerous drug and medication violations, including a 45-day suspension issued last week in California. But ever since the colt was put on a van to New York, there have been a number of bumps on the road to the Belmont Stakes, such as a traffic jam on the New Jersey Turnpike. I’ll Have Another will not be able to wear the nasal strip he wore when he won the Derby and Preakness. The horse also went without regular exercise rider Jonny Garcia until a week ago because of visa issues. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Top-seeded Djokovic shaky in Open victory

Novak Djokovic of Serbia returns in his fourth-round match against Andreas Seppi of Italy at the French Open on Sunday. BERNAT ARMANGUE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Novak Djokovic won even though he felt like nothing was working. A much less-known player named David Goffin lost, but he walked out of Roland Garros feeling like the luckiest guy in the world. It was a strange, grey Sunday at the French Open that didn’t always fit the script — and even included an early exit by the top-seeded woman, Victoria Azarenka.

a one-set lead against none other than his childhood favourite, Roger Federer, before falling 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. At the end, the 21-year-old got a hug from the 16-time major champion that left him smiling. “I’ve had an extraordinary week,” he said. “I went through the quallies with a bit of luck. Then I played my best tennis. I played three great matches. The icing on the cake was to play here with Roger.” Djokovic was just happy his hopes of winning his fourth straight Grand Slam tournament — the “Novak Slam” — are still alive. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

You must stick with the task or project you are working on, no matter how slowly it may be progressing.

Pisces | Feb. 19 - March 20.

Although you are under a lot of pressure at the moment you will find ways to deal with it. Pisces is an adaptable sign, so if one way does not seem to be working for you just try something else. Sally brompton
