Not deemed suspicious

Body found at Edmonton recycling plant Edmonton police were on scene at Capital Paper Recycling in the northwest end of the city Thursday morning, where a body was discovered. Details are scarce, but EPS said a body was

found at the plant, located at 128 Avenue and 148 Street. No further information was provided, but police, forensics and the medical examiner were at the scene. EPS are not calling the death suspicious at this time. The recycling plant seemed to still be in operation as semi-trucks were still allowed access to the otherwise fenced off area.

Is Alberta handling ecstasy use properly? Regulation. B.C.’s top health official advocates harm reduction approach to potentially dangerous drug JEREMY NOLAIS

Comments from B.C.’s top health official that pure ecstasy is “safe” when consumed responsibly is raising questions again on how to handle drug awareness and education in Alberta. Dr. Perry Kendall asserts the risks of MDMA — the pure substance originally synonymous with ecstasy — are overblown, and that its dangers only arise when the manmade chemical is polluted by gangs manufacturing it. Kendall did stop short of advocating for legalizing the drug, but said the topic warrants further discussion. The remarks came a few months after an ecstasy crisis in B.C. and Alberta that was linked to 19 deaths and hundreds of dangerous overdoses. Officials determined the spike in adverse health effects was due to the use of an ecstasy compound known as PMMA, which is a cheaper and far

Municipal. City officials push for online voting during next election City officials are suggesting city council take the necessary next steps to ensure online voting is an option during the next municipal election in Edmonton. Providing Internet ballots instead of mailing them to those who can’t make it to the polls requires a change to the Local Authorities Elections Act, which means city councillors must send an official letter to Alberta Municipal Affairs.

Capital Ex organizers are hoping fair-goers will take a shine to its unique, “heavy metal” main-stage show, debuting at the fair later next month. The Aluminum Show, based out of Jerusalem, repurposes aluminum and gives it new life as set pieces and costumes in the 30-minute show. It will be the first time the show is performed in Canada. This year’s Capital Ex — the last under that moniker — will centre around music, and food to rides and shopping, said spokesperson Jennifer Sheehan. “(Music) is something everyone can relate to,” she said. “Wherever you go, there

will be music.” While Edmontonians count down to the Capital Ex kick-off, they’re encouraged to keep an eye out for the Capital Ex Street Team. The team roaming around Edmonton to get people into the festival spirit by singing karaoke and shooting dance videos. Also happening this year behind the scenes at Capital Ex, is the contest to rename the festival.

Mosquitoes buzzing off – so far Precipitation. Lack of snow, light rain means habitats aren’t what they were last year heather mcintyre

By the numbers • The city collects, counts

and analyzes the approximate 30 species of mosquitoes caught in nine light traps installed around Edmonton May through September.

Despite recent rainfall, mosquito numbers are not up in Edmonton. In fact, over the past week there were 30 mosquitoes found in city traps — compared to 300 during the same period last year. But, the average is 0.5 mosquitoes per trap, said Mike Jenkins, city biological sciences technician. “So the numbers are still quite, quite low,” he told reporters in Hawrelak Park on Thursday. The problem last year was a surprising number of aggressive daytime biters, though Jenkins said none of those have been trapped so far this year. “We are seeing in our larval sampling … species that are our main nuisance mosquito through most of the summer, so we’re expecting those ones to start

appearing,” he said. “But overall the numbers are incredibly low, much lower than they were last year.” A mild winter meant not only an early start monitoring mosquito habitat, but also less of it. And while the outlook is good now, Jenkins did note that things didn’t get “nasty” last year until July. “Without knowing what the precipitation is going to be, it’s impossible to predict what is going to happen,” he said. “If we get lots of rainfall, it could get worse. If we don’t get any rainfall, it could stay really good.”

Beavers, birds recover at Alberta wildlife centre

Oil from a pipeline leak coats a pond near Sundre, Alta., last Friday. Local wildlife groups say they’re starting to see some of the wildlife affected by the spill. Jeff McIntosh/the canadian press

A wildlife centre in Alberta is treating a handful of animals slicked with oil following last week’s pipeline leak into the Red Deer River. Two beavers, one Canada goose and a crow have been cleaned up at the Medicine River Wildlife Centre and appear to be healthy. Environment officials have also found three dead fish near the spill site, but won’t know for several weeks whether the oil caused their deaths. A section of pipeline owned by Plains Midstream Canada leaked June 7 near

the community of Sundre, spilling up to 475,000 litres of light sour crude into the river. Carol Kelly, executive director of the wildlife centre near Innisfail, said a baby beaver covered in oil was brought to the centre the next day. The other animals were delivered later. They will all be monitored there over the next couple weeks - except for one. A large adult female beaver made a daring escape from the centre Wednesday night. Kelly figures the animal was able to reach up and hit the exit bar on the door and

let itself out. It then chewed through the wall surrounding an outdoor pond. It’s now likely roaming the vast wetland that surrounds the building. “She was obviously doing well,” Kelly said with a laugh. “She decided she didn’t like this hotel and she left.” Kelly said staff used PeptoBismol and other fluids to flush out any oil the animals may have digested. So far, they seem fine. The animals are eating well and staff will be monitoring their weight.

Minimal impact

• Plains Midstream has said high river levels flushed most of the oil downstream into Gleniffer Lake, a manmade reservoir and popular recreational area. • The river is also considered one of the province’s premier sport-fishing destinations.

Condoms won’t protect you from zombies. That line got a big laugh from students assembled at Amiskwaciy Academy as they watched the premiere of their self-produced public service announcement Thursday. The clip of students being attacked by zombies — who find offering them a condom provides no protection — provided a moment of levity in a serious presentation. The video was one of three

produced at the academy for Aboriginal students. The school’s media facilitator Jason Gonziola said the project began with five sharing circles based on social and sexual issues the students face. People with first-hand experience (a now-clean meth addict shared his story) facilitated the discussions, said Gonziola. The discussions provided the basis for the PSAs, which Gonziola hopes be shared by the students via social media.

They will also be incorporated into the public school board curriculum. While the zombie clip was played for laughs, others were deadly serious. The clip on family violence incorporates a real-life emergency call from a panicked child, while the drug abuse segment recreates a drug dealer’s stabbing. But the zombies clearly scored. “I think that might go viral,” Gonziola said. Maurice Tougas/metro

Socialite Ksenia Sobchak was initially shunned by activists due to close personal ties to Putin “I’m Ksenia Sobchak, and I’ve got something to lose. But I’m here.” That’s what the 30-yearold blond socialite and TV personality said when she began her unlikely foray into political activism by taking the stage at a huge anti-Putin rally in December. It was a shaky start. Sobchak was greeted with jeers and boos from protesters, who derided her as a rich party girl and were suspicious of her motives because of her family’s close personal ties to Vladimir Putin. Six months later, Sobchak has been accepted into the ranks of Russia’s protest leaders, completing a transformation that reflects the civic awakening of millions of young Russians after a decade of political passivity.

Putin has taken a tougher approach toward the opposition since returning to the presidency in May. But while hundreds of demonstrators have been detained over the

past month, Sobchak found out only this week that she does indeed have something to lose. Her apartment was among the homes of protest leaders that were raided by police. They read her personal correspondence, seized her passport — and confiscated at least one million euros ($1.3 million) in cash. It was a quick change of fortune for Russia’s It Girl. Sobchak had been considered untouchable because of Putin’s enduring loyalty to her late father, who as mayor of St. Petersburg in the early 1990s gave Russia’s future president his first government job and launched his political career. Putin began a third term on May 7 after four years as prime minister. When asked about Putin, rumoured to be her godfather, Sobchak has expressed gratitude to him for taking care of her family after her father, Anatoly Sobchak, fell out of political favour. She has been restrained in her criticism of Putin himself, while at the same time calling for more open government, fair elections and an end to the corruption that pervades Russian society.

A glance at the activists

ILYA YASHIN The 28-year-old member of the leadership of the opposition Solidarity movement has been among key organizers of recent protests. A fiery speaker, Yashin is a passionate critic of the government.

ALEXEI NAVALNY The 36-year-old corruptionfighting lawyer and popular blogger has played a key role in mobilizing Russia’s young to rally against Putin’s rule. The charismatic and ambitious Navalny spearheaded a series of rallies in Moscow during the winter that brought up to 100,000 people in the streets in the run-up to March’s vote. He reaches more than 250,000 followers on Twitter.

SERGEI UDALTSOV The leader of the Left Front opposition movement, 35-year-old Udaltsov has been at the forefront of antiPutin protests for several years. Udaltsov has consistently defied the authorities, staging unsanctioned marches and rallies. He also launched numerous hunger strikes and spent weeks in hospitals. Udaltsov has been arrested more than 100 times. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Parliament Hill. Flaherty accuses NDP of stalling as opposition gets comfortable for marathon voting session The two sleep-deprived sides of the House of Commons kept vigilant watch on each other Thursday as bleary-eyed MPs stood up and sat down over and over again, their 24-hour marathon voting session pushing past the halfway mark. “I’ve got to get myself comfy — off come the shoes,” said New Democrat MP Glenn Thibeault, describing one of

the many ways MPs sought comfort through the 12th hour of voting on more than 800 amendments to Bill C-38. Members of Parliament bobbed from their seats through the night and into the afternoon as they voted on 871 opposition motions that are designed to thwart, or at least publicize, the Harper government’s sprawling omnibus budget-implementation bill. Liberal House leader Marc Garneau’s best guess for when the voting would finally be over? Likely 1 a.m. Friday morning, he said — 24 hours after it began. The long haul seemed to have taken a toll on Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. He was

waspish in his comments about the opposition’s efforts to delay passage of his budget bill. “This is not a time for gamesmanship,” Flaherty said. “This is a serious time in which we need to protect Canada and advance our economic agenda ... and we’ll do whatever we have to do today and tonight and in the early hours of tomorrow morning to get the job done.” NDP House leader Nathan Cullen had tried to win unanimous consent to hold question period at the regular time, only to be shouted down from the government benches. Flaherty was scornful of Cullen’s gambit, saying the


Green party Leader Elizabeth May

NDP wasted several hours before voting even began and were deliberately taking their time getting to their feet during each individual vote. Cullen, meanwhile, wasn’t surprised his motion for question period was shouted down. “The government doesn’t really like question period all that much,” he said. “Something about being held to account.” The legislation contains a bewildering maze of changes to dozens of statutes. Critics say such omnibus bills amount to a massive abuse of Parliament — an argument a young Stephen Harper once made with some conviction as a Reform MP. The canadian press

Secret files kept by Boy Scouts ordered released Scouts tried to keep them private. Court in the U.S. says use of the files in a molestation suit makes them part of the public record A court in the U.S. has approved the release of so-called “perversion files” compiled by the Boy Scouts of America on suspected child molesters within the organization over two decades. This will give the public its first chance to review the files on 1,200 people. The files gathered from 1965 to 1985 came to light when they were used as evidence in a landmark Oregon ruling in 2010 that the Scouts had failed to protect a plaintiff who had been molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the early 1980s. The Scouts were ordered to pay the man $18.5 million US. The case drew attention to the organization’s efforts to keep child molesters out of its

The mother of a 17-year-old pimping suspect Ottawa police are searching for says she is also trying to find her daughter, who she fears has been killed. “Either she went into hiding or she has been killed. That is what I want to know. Where is my daughter? Are the police of Ottawa doing their job?” the woman said emotionally when reached by phone Thursday. Police allege the woman’s daughter and two 15-year-olds forced three teen girls into prostitution. The 15-year-olds are in custody facing serious charges including assault and human trafficking. Police have not yet released the 17-year-old’s name to the

leadership ranks. In recent years, the Boy Scouts have faced numerous lawsuits from men who say they were molested as children by scout leaders. The Boy Scouts fought to keep the files sealed, arguing that opening them could unfairly affect those who were suspected but never convicted of abuse. Media organizations challenged the Scouts’ efforts to keep the files under seal, arguing that their introduction by attorneys in the suit makes them public record. A judge agreed. The files are part of a larger trove of documents the Boy Scouts began compiling several decades ago on people flagged as possible molesters.

Air India bombing. Reyat to appeal record perjury sentence of nine years An Air India bomber who received Canada’s longest perjury sentence is appealing the conviction in a Vancouver court. Inderjit Singh Reyat was handed a nine-year prison sentence last year for lying repeatedly at the 2003 trial of two men charged with mass murder and conspiracy. Reyat was a Crown witness at the trial of Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri, who were acquitted in the biggest case of aviation terrorism before the 9-11 attacks. Reyat’s testimony was part of a deal that saw him plead guilty to manslaughter in the deaths of 329 people aboard Air India Flight 182 in 1985. He’d already served a 10Killer judge

Col. Russell Williams is denying that a woman he tied up and sexually assaulted is entitled to compensation. Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press

Convicted murderer Russell Williams is denying that a woman he tied up and sexually assaulted is entitled to compensation from him for pain and suffering. In a statement of defence to a lawsuit launched by Laurie Massicotte in Belleville, Ont., Williams says she will have to prove her claims in court. And he wants her to pay for his bills to fight her lawsuit. Massicotte, who has chosen to reveal her identity and speak about her ordeal, filed a nearly $7 million lawsuit in September against Williams. The attack left her fearful, humiliated, depressed, suicidal, unable to function in society and she will require extensive therapy, Massicotte said in her statement of claim. Williams broke into her

house on Sept. 29, 2009, hit her over the head, tied her up, sexually assaulted her and took pornographic pictures, according to Massicotte. The former colonel pleaded guilty to the attack on Massicotte, admitting to those facts in court in October 2010. For the purposes of the lawsuit Williams’ statement of defence challenges Massicotte to a burden of “strict proof” of her claims about the attack and resulting anguish.

Sanctions lifted. Coke to start selling its soft drinks in Myanmar The Coca-Cola Co. plans to start selling its drinks in Myanmar for the first time in 60 years, following the U.S. government’s decision to suspend sanctions on the country for its democratic reforms. Myanmar is one of three countries where Coca-Cola doesn’t do business. The other two are Cuba and North Korea. The world’s biggest soft drink maker said Thursday it will start doing business in the country as soon as the U.S. government issues a license allowing American companies to make such investments. The U.S. announced last month that it was suspending restrictions on American investments in the Southeast Asian country, which is still easing toward democracy. Until last year, Myanmar had been led by an oppressive military junta. Coca-Cola said its products will initially be imported from neighbouring countries as it establishes local operations in Myanmar; the

He plans to meet Holder and representatives of three other allies Friday.

Cokeless lands? Only two As part of its push in Myanmar, Coca-Cola said it is donating $3 million to support job creation for women in the country.

Court ruling. B.C.’s tough Coexist. Cougars spreading across U.S. Midwest after drunk driving laws being nearly wiped out return after tweaking B.C. drivers are once again facing what are considered the toughest drunk driving penalties in Canada after the provincial government was forced to adjust the law following a court ruling. The law was originally introduced in September of 2010, giving police the power to impound cars and hand out hefty fines to drivers whose blood-alcohol level was higher than .05, which is slightly below the .08 legal limit under the Criminal Code. The law was later withdrawn after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled it violated drivers’ rights because it didn’t provide a way for them to challenge the result of a roadside breath test. Under the revised law, police officers must tell drivers they can have a second test if they fail the first one, and the lower of the two readings will prevail. Police must also provide sworn reports on every roadside driving ban they issue and must also submit documents confirming the accuracy of the breathalysers they use.

Reducing drunk driving

• The government said the law has already exceeded its expectations in reducing drunk driving deaths in the province, with the number of deaths falling by 44 per cent in the first 17 months since the law came into force.

Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the changes go beyond what the court ordered because the government wants to ensure the rules are both fair and effective. “This legislation has always been about public safety, and its life-saving value is clear,” she said in a statement. “I want to assure all British Columbians, especially those who’ve lost a loved one to impaired driving, that our tough stance on impaired driving has not changed. We have not undermined the deterrent value of our law, which is so critical to the lifesaving gains we’ve seen.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Cougars are again spreading across the U.S. Midwest a century after they were hunted to near extinction in much of the region, a new study says. The findings, detailed in The Journal of Wildlife Management, showed 178 cougar confirmations in the Midwest and as far south as Texas between 1990 and 2008. Researchers said the study poses fresh questions about how humans and livestock can coexist with the re-emerging predators, who have made startling appearances in recent years in downtown Santa Monica, Calif., and

even in a Chicago alley. Wildlife officials have said it’s unclear how many of the animals may be in the Midwest, where they are not federally protected and, in some states, can be hunted. “We (now) know there are a heck of a lot more cougars running around the Midwest than in 1990,” said Clay Nielsen, a Southern Illinois University wildlife ecologist who co-authored the report while heading the non-profit Cougar Network’s research. “We’ve got an interesting and compelling picture to talk about now.

The psychiatrists who have faced intense criticism for deeming Anders Behring Breivik — the self-confessed killer of 77 people in Norway last year — too mentally unfit to go to prison defended their stance Thursday, calling him delusional. Torgeir Husby and Synne Soerheim, who concluded that Breivik suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, stuck to their findings when presenting their 239-page report on the rightwing extremist’s mental health to the court. They insisted he is driven by delusions rather than political conviction, saying he resembled people who believe they are the new Napoleon. “One doesn’t go collecting expertise in historical facts if a new Napoleon is admitted (to a clinic), not even if he arrives in full uniform,” Husby said. Their report came under fire for lacking knowledge of

right-wing terminology and for interpreting Breivik’s political explanations for his rampage as symptoms of schizophrenia. The court then ordered a second evaluation by other psychiatrists, who came to the opposite conclusion, deeming him sufficiently mentally competent to go to prison. Breivik’s sanity is key to the case and is still an unresolved issue. If found guilty and sane, the 33-year-old Norwegian would face 21 years in prison, although he could be held even

longer if deemed a danger to society. If declared insane, he would be committed to compulsory psychiatric care. To back up their claims, Soerheim spent much of the day reading out their findings, including statements made by Breivik’s mother, who claimed that as much as “half of what he’s told police is a lie.” According to his mother, he has fabricated information about both his travels and his education. Breivik’s mother isn’t appearing at his trial because of health-related reasons, and has not been named due to Norwegian privacy rules. the associated press

Hutterite leaders blast documentary American Colony. Anabaptist leaders upset with National Geographic production

A TV documentary series about an Anabaptist community in Montana offers a “distorted” and contrived image, bishops representing the Hutterite faith in the U.S. and Canada said Thursday.

John Stahl, Peter Entz and John Waldner, bishops for the three sects encompassing the roughly 50,000 Hutterites and 500 colonies in North America, said in a joint statement they are “deeply disappointed” in National Geographic Channel’s American Colony: Meet the Hutterites. The 10-part series that began airing last month promised a rare inside look at Hutterite colony life, focusing on the King Ranch Colony.

Why the clergy hated it

“... A distorted and exploitative version of Hutterite life.” Hutterite bishops John Stahl, Peter Entz and John Waldner make a joint statement concerning the portrayal of their communities in a new 10-part television series.

The bishops accused producers of contriving scenes and dialogue in a “make believe’’ portrayal of “how we live and

the spiritual beliefs we cherish.” The channel and the production company were reviewing the bishops’ joint statement Thursday and did not have an immediate comment. Members of the King Ranch commune are depicted as drinking alcoholic beverages and cursing. Some parents are shown questioning their faith’s tenets, while a restless teenager flouts rules on dress and dating. the associated press

‘Hell on earth.’ Judges tour Zimbabwe’s infamous jail Zimbabwe’s top judges visited a notorious Harare jail Thursday after receiving complaints that it is filthy, ill-equipped and uninhabitable, but a rights activist and reporters who joined the tour said the cells had apparently been cleaned up just in time for the jurists’ arrival. The five Supreme Court judges toured the main Harare police station cells and said they will rule later on whether to close down the cells because conditions are inhumane, in a suit brought by members of Women of Zimbabwe Arise, a group founded to champion women’s issues. The group’s members have been arrested after demonstrations that featured rattling pots and pans to call attention to food shortages, or handing out red roses on Valentine’s Day to protest domestic and political violence. The judges inspected only three dimly-lit cells with six concrete beds and no mattresses. Dozens more cells remained locked. 30th Anniversary

Cellblock makeover

“These were not the conditions we were detained in.” Jenni Williams, founder of Women of Zimbabwe Arise, reacts to improved conditions of prisoner cells during Thursday’s tour of the Harare jail

Reporters with the judges say the usually overcrowded cells were empty and appeared to have been cleaned. Williams said she and three other activists who filed the suit were once detained in a cell “filled with pools of urine and littered with feces and condoms.” She said they were given frayed, foul-smelling blankets that were inadequate on cold stone floors. Fresh water was unavailable and jail authorities provided no food for prisoners, who relied on supplies from relatives. “It was hell on earth, it was torture — all because we were demanding our rights,” Williams said. the associated press China

Falkland Islanders are celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the day British troops forced Argentina to give up its occupation. Amid heavy snowfall, about 350 people followed a military parade down Stanley’s Ross Road to Liberation Monument where the sacrifices of British soldiers were honoured. Britain’s Latin America Minister Jeremy Browne laid a wreath, as did the islands’ British Gov. Nigel Haywood and legislative assembly member Jan Cheek. Argentina still claims the islands are part of its national territory, but Browne said in an interview on Falklands Radio that islanders alone must determine their future.

A Foxconn Technology Group employee jumped to his death Wednesday from a company-rented apartment building in southwest China’s Sichuan province, local police said. At least a dozen Foxconn employees have jumped to their deaths or tried to do so since 2010, casting spotlight on the world’s largest contract maker of electronics. The Taiwan-based company has been besieged with reports of poor working and living conditions for its workers at factories and dorms. A public security bureau in Chengdu city identifies the employee only by the surname Xie and says the cause remains under investigation.

Bank of Canada warning of fallout from EU crisis A nation exposed. Federal regulatory body puts Canadians on alert over instability created by inflated real-estate values, household debt The Bank of Canada conti­ nues to warn that the high level of household debt and overvalued real estate in this country have left the econ­ omy vulnerable if a financial shock erupts in Europe. In its financial system re­ view identifying risks to the economy, the bank noted cer­ tain segments of the housing market that have a persistent oversupply — such as condos in Toronto — face a higher risk of a price correction. Using a hypothetical stress test, the bank says a three per cent increase in unemploy­ ment — about the same as oc­ curred in the recent recession — would almost triple the pro­ portion of indebted households that would go into arrears. The current rate is cur­ rently about half a per cent

Bombardier gets $1.6B railcar order Bombardier Transportation has signed a deal worth up to $1.6 billion to supply San Francisco with new rail cars, the latest in a string of major U.S. contracts. The Berlin-based subsidi­ ary of Montreal’s Bombar­ dier Inc. says it has signed an initial deal with San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District for 260 new rail cars worth $647 million. The deal follows an agree­ ment earlier this month to make 300 subway cars for New York City Transit valued at $613 million. the associated press

A time for building bridges in Windsor? Vehicles cross the Ambassador Bridge as viewed from Windsor, Ont., Monday, June 1, 2009. Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be in Windsor and across the river in Detroit on Friday amid speculation he will be helping announce a new bridge between the two border cities. About one-quarter of all Canada-U.S. trade currently flows across the Ambassador Bridge. But the bridge is close to 100 years old and bottlenecks are not uncommon. The Ontario Trucking Association is among those who have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of a second bridge. dave chidley|the canadian press

Downsized. Nokia shares The hot seat. British PM goes on the plunge after mass layoffs defensive at phone-hacking inquiry Nokia shares plunged more than 15 per cent Thursday after the Finnish cellphone maker said it would slash 10,000 jobs and close a num­ ber of operations, including one in Canada, amid fierce competition in the industry. The Finnish cellphone maker also announced per­ sonnel changes and said it has agreed to sell its luxury phone brand, Vertu. The measures, aimed at additional cost savings of $1.6 billion by the end of next year, will shut down research and development facilities in Ulm, Germany, and Burnaby, B.C., among others





The company’s share price plunged more than 7 per cent to $2.69 in morning trading in Helsinki. The loss-making company has been struggling against fierce competition from Apple Inc.’s iPhone and other makers using Google Inc.’s popular Android software, in­ cluding Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC of Taiwan. In April, Nokia announced one of its worst quarterly results ever, blaming tough competition for a $929-mil­ lion net loss in the first quar­ ter as sales plunged in the smartphone market.

A confident and unruffled Prime Minister David Cam­ eron on Thursday defended his ill-fated decision to make disgraced tabloid editor Andy Coulson his communications director, even though the news executive had already been tarnished in Britain’s phone-hacking scandal. The leader also defended the conduct of Culture Sec­ retary Jeremy Hunt and the decision to put him in charge of judging Rupert Murdoch’s controversial bid to take full control of the lucrative BSkyB broadcasting company. Hunt has been accused by critics of being too close to the media


mogul and his company, News Corp. Cameron shed light on the cozy relationship he enjoyed with senior Murdoch execu­ tives as he tried to wrest con­ trol of Britain’s government from the Labour Party before the 2010 general election that brought him to power. In sworn testimony before a U.K. media ethics inquiry, Cameron said he chose Coul­ son for the key communica­ tions post because he wanted a tough man to implement his media strategy in a de­ manding, 24/7 news environ­ ment.

and could rise 1.3 per cent under that scenario. A shock would also cut into net worth of Canadians. The bank points out that 40 per cent of household worth is tied to the value of their real estate holdings, compared to only 34 per cent a decade ago. “Markets in Canada have been relatively stable ... never­ theless, a further significant deterioration in global finan­ cial conditions could have a considerable impact in Canada through trade, financial and confidence channels,’’ the bank said Thursday its semi-annual financial systems review. In fact, the bank says the spillover effects on Canada’s financial institutions, such as banks, “would be substantial.’’ While the report does not attempt to place odds on the chance of a Europe-centred shock, it judges the risks as “very high.” The dire warning — not al­ together unexpected from the central bank given renewed turbulence in Europe, includ­ ing a possibility that Greece will exit the euro currency zone after Sunday’s elections — gives some urgency to the G20 summit of leaders in Mex­

RIM pays former co-CEOs $12M Research in Motion. BlackBerry maker giving ex-leader Jim Balsillie $8M and Mike Lazaridis, who remains on the RIM board, $4M The former co-CEOs of BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion will receive a combined $12 million in payouts for leaving their roles at the struggling company. In a document filed with securities regulators on Thursday, ahead of the company’s annual meeting in July, RIM outlined the details of what each former executive receives. Jim Balsillie will be paid nearly $8 million in salary and other compensation after stepping down as leader in January

Ex-tycoon sentenced to 110 years in prison

Cable technicians going on strike Friday: Union

Former jet-setting Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford, whose financial empire once spanned the Americas, was sentenced Thursday to 110 years in prison for bilking investors out of more than $7 billion US over 20 years in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history. Prosecutors had asked that Stanford be sentenced to 230 years in prison.

The union representing 200 technicians who service Rogers Communications Inc. customers in Ontario say they will go on strike on Friday at 8 a.m. The union has said one of the key issues is that employees are paid on a piece-work system, which creates financial instability. The union accused both Intek and DHT of refusing to bargain.

Walking a fine line

Bare bones of archaeology


Buyer beware: Céline Dion’s 19-acre Île Gagnon Mike Benhaim retreat is the most Metro expensive property ever listed on the Quebec housing market. The Normandy-style château is listed at almost $30 million, but rumour has it they may trade it straight up for Spain. Not cool: Last weekend, an Ontario couple allegedly left their dog in a car with no water in 30 C heat. The dog died, and the owners face a $2,000 fine, six months of jail time, or 18 hours in a sauna. Tall tales: Friday, Nik Wallenda will attempt to cross the Niagara Gorge on a tightrope. Offspring of the legendary Flying Wallendas have been bred into death-defying feats for almost two centuries. Despite meticulous training, several have actually been killed or left disabled performing these acts. Someone in my family tripped on their shoelace in 1978, and the rest of us have been wearing loafers ever since. Just sayin’. Set your PVRs: CBC’s newest reality show will feature auditions to play Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of The Wizard of Oz, which hits Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre in December. Girls will compete for a chance to wear the ruby slippers on the cleverly entitled Over the Rainbow, where they will sing (you guessed it) Over the Rainbow.  Another innovative gem from our federally funded friends at the CBC. Dallas: TNT’s revival of one of the most popular ’80s shows is a success. With a good-looking new cast and a few originals, there probably won’t be a “Who shot J.R.?” cliffhanger this time around. A more likely ending would be “Who slipped J.R. a Viagra?” Papillon: A study at Yale University recently revealed that female butterflies preferred males with flashier wings. Erica Westerman, the study’s lead author, says, “The male did not have to court them or engage in flashy behaviour. There is a bias in what females learn.... Extra ornamentation is better.” Is this a metaphor?  Rock of Ages: The star-studded film version of the successful play debuts Friday. A safe choice for viewers who enjoy a good soundtrack. As I said two years ago when the play opened, you can expect your “run-of-the-mill, guitargrinding, drum-thumping, head-banging, cross-gender, glammetal, ’80s rebel-rock.” Who among us can’t relate to that?  Righteous rockers: This week in 1964, the Rolling Stones were touring in the U.S. when they were reminded of a show that had been booked a year earlier. The band had to fly back to the U.K. to perform at Oxford’s Magdalen College for £100 ($160). Despite increased rates and demand, the gentlemen honoured their obligation.  Airfare cost them £2,500 ($4,000). Three words: This weekend we pay homage to the men that raised us, taught us right from wrong, picked us up when we fell and snuck us a treat when mom said “No.” Some left abruptly and some suffered far too long, but if your dad is around today, pick up the phone and tell him you love him, or head on over and give him a hug. It’s better than a tie or that awful cologne, and will last a whole lot longer. Happy Father’s Day.  the list

‘Vampire’ skeleton on display in Bulgaria A skeleton dating back to the Middle Ages and recently unearthed in the town of Sozopol is displayed at the National History Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria, on Thursday. Ever since archaeologists announced last week that they had found two ancient skeletons in Bulgaria with iron rods thrust through their chests, the media have been reporting

how Bulgarians once did that to prevent the dead from emerging from the grave as vampires. On Saturday, one of those skeletons will be put on display at the National History Museum, and its director, Bozhidar Dimitrov, says he expects there to be a big turnout. Dimitrov said Thursday that some people who were believed to have led evil lives were treated that way when they were buried in parts of Bulgaria as recently as the beginning of the last century.

This 700-year-old skeleton was stabbed in the chest with an iron rod and had his teeth pulled before being put to rest. The media have reported that because vampire tales remain popular in Balkan countries, some people in the Black Sea resort of Sozopol, where the skeletons were found in a graveyard, are having trouble sleeping at night.

would this movie be more palatable if Sandler dropped the grating accent? And then I went one step further and recast the role with Steve Carell in the lead and you know what? It would still smell. Richard, you call Sandler’s character a lazy rehash, but the whole movie is dripping in ’80s and ’90s nostalgia — probably the decades when Sandler’s comedy made most sense. Can you pick a scene or actor in this mess that stood above the rest of it? Mine would have to be the scene set in the upscale mens’ spa.

RC: No one escapes this movie unsullied. Also, what does Adam Sandler have against The Godfather? First he debases Pacino in Jack & Jill, and now James Caan. It’s a good thing Brando is gone. MB: I just emailed Robert Duvall telling him to watch out. Sandler’s obviously working his way down the list.

Sandler keeps sinking

They may have been Oscar rivals earlier this year, but there’s nothing but love between Meryl Streep and Viola Davis. Streep, who ended Davis’ awards run for The Help by winning the lead actress Oscar for The Iron Lady, lauded her friend and colleague Tuesday at Women in Film’s annual Crystal + Lucy Awards. She called Davis “a lion-hearted woman” and a gifted and determined actress.

32 Musical


Rock of Ages Director. Adam Shankman Stars. Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand

••••• Borrowed from Broadway, Rock of Ages takes the ’80s hair-band-hit musical and turns it into a celebrity sing-a-long that’s as shallow as Poison lyrics. Assembled by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) and featuring Tom Cruise (who can sing!) and Alec Baldwin (who can’t), it wedges in a pencil-thin romance between two struggling singers. It aims to be nothin’ but a good time, but when Cruise isn’t strutting around ambiguously imitating Axl Rose, the story is tediously banal. Steve gow WEEKEND, June 15-17, 2012



Moonrise Kingdom


In the Family

Director. Joseph Cedar

Director. Patrick Wang

Director. Wes Anderson

Stars. Shlomo Bar-Aba, Lior Ashkenazi, Aliza Rosen

Stars. Patrick Wang, Trevor St. John, Sebastian Banes



Israel’s 2012 Foreign Language Oscar entry is an intriguing, nerve-jangling and oppressively narrow story that would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic. Israeli father and son academics are torn apart by a national prize; the elder doggedly pursued Talmudic theories for 30 years only to have them made redundant when a colleague scooped him. In his obsessive, paranoid misery, he sees his son as his real rival. Things get a lot worse in grandly academic and hilariously lowbrow ways. Anne Brodie

Writer/director/producer Patrick Wang also stars in In the Family, his subtle but incredibly moving first feature film. Cody (St. John) and Joey (Wang) have raised Cody’s biological son, Chip (Banes), together since he was a baby. But when Cody is killed in a car accident, Joey learns that Cody’s six-year-old will names Cody’s sister as Chip’s legal guardian. In the Family follows Joey as he attempts to regain custody of his son and as he learns what it really means to be “family.”

Stars. Jared Gilman, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton

••••• Wes Anderson’s films aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. And with Moonrise Kingdom, the quirky auteur (The Royal Tenenbaums) doesn’t bow to box-office pressure over originality either. Set in 1965, two adolescents fall in love and run away on a small island on the eve of a great storm. While Anderson won’t likely recruit many new fans, there’s no denying his evocative, meticulous style, which helps make this film a fascinating contemporary fable. Steve Gow

“You could say with hindsight that we didn’t make a wrong decision, we just made a decision. We revisited that decision when they threw out the idea of the film to us because they mentioned people like Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones and the director who did Hairspray.” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott on being associated with the Rock of Ages movie but not the stage show.

Facing Armageddon can be a funny thing in Lorene Scafaria’s new film Using heroin and orgies. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World finds comedy in how people prepare for their death

seemed comical to me.” As such, the first-time director has drafted a clever cinematic mash-up between an “end-of-the-world” genre film and a traditional romantic comedy. While it’s being released June 22nd — shortly before the Mayan calendar runs out – Scafaria insists the timing of the four-year project is merely coincidental. “(Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) was my ninth script and this was No. 18 so there’s been a lot of writing (in between),” laughed Scafaria. “It’s a really strange thing that you can have sort of a career without a lot of output.” Scafaria also admits the movie “wasn’t really given a life until Steve Carell got on board” and that it’s his everyman quality that gives Seeking a Friend credibility. “He’s so subtle and charming obviously,” said Scafaria. “(But) he’s got such a love of humanity in himself and his work that I think most comedians don’t bring to the table.”

When Armageddon comes, Lorene Scafaria will likely be found listening to music and dreaming of lost love. “I’m very much a Penny,” admitted the filmmaker about the Keira Knightley character in her new movie Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. “I’d probably be too flaky to get my act together yet I’d want to so badly.” In the apocalyptic comedy, Knightley and Steve Carell pair up as a giant asteroid brings end times to Earth — an event that’s apparently not as tragic as it seems. “Death is surreal,” said

No ordinary romantic comedy here On combining the apocalypse with a romantic comedy: “(I wondered) what would it be like if you put those things together,” said Scafaria “Things like a date at a theme restaurant become an orgy — it was kind of fun to think in terms of a mash-up.” Scafaria on writing: “I always try to look at people with a sympathetic eye and I always look at myself with a critical one,” said Scafaria. “I just like exploring characters that have flaws but deep down they’re just like everybody else.” Steve Gow

SCENE WEEKEND, June 15-17, 2012

Brave offers up a Disney princess like none you’ve ever seen before New direction. Rookie director Mark Andrews talks about how audiences expect something different from Pixar heroines

who can run off and marry somebody, right? We’re all, “I don’t care about that. Let ’em marry somebody.” But here’s this person, this character that doesn’t want to do that stuff. “Um, lady, you’re going to be a queen someday. You’re going to have to step up.” So we get those stakes. But it quickly turns and goes away from that idea and that concept. So it’s just a very superficial concept, but because it’s so easy and somebody says princess and Disney and thinks that’s all that movie is, great. Let them think that. Never try and outguess us.


First-time feature director Mark Andrews knows a thing or two about pressure. While he’s been a longtime Pixar team member — and director Brad Bird’s right-hand man — the task of taking on Brave, the animation studio’s latest feature, was more than a little daunting. And it doesn’t help that he had to step in for original director Brenda Chapman. But Andrews loves a challenge almost as much as he loves Scotland, where the tale takes place. Scotland seems like such a mystical place, with each location having some sort of myth to it. It is, it is. Everything had a story. Nothing didn’t have a story. Every creek and branch and thing. But that was their culture, sharing these stories, and you knew these locations because you had to make them memorable — or stuff actually did happen there. In developing the film, we wanted that aspect in there that every character is telling a story or knows a story, or there’s a story about everything that’s happening in Brave, so you get story upon story upon story upon story upon story, interwoven in the actual movie. Did you have any mystical run-ins yourself there? On my honeymoon, we were

Set in ancient Scotland, Pixar’s new animated feature film Brave stars Kelly Macdonald as the voice of bold, free-thinking Princess Merida. Handout

in a hotel in Oban, and right on the counter there’s a big thing with newspaper articles on it, from way back when, about this hotel’s history. I’m just flipping through, and all of a sudden I go, “Oh my God, ghost in room 216.” And just as I read this, the clerk hands us over our keys to room 215. I’m all, “Oh crap.” The ghost only shows herself to women to warn women away from men. The ghost is the ghost of a woman who killed herself jumping out of a window be-

keep coming in and going, “Ah, the ghost...”


“Somebody says princess and Disney and thinks that’s all the movie is, great. Let them think that. Never try and out-guess us.” Mark Andrews. Director of Brave Explaining that those who underestimate his film will be surprised.

cause the man she was in love with, that was the last night there in that room, he goes off to sea, doesn’t tell her when he comes back that he met somebody else. So she’s waiting there for him to ren-

dezvous, but he never returns so she offed herself. So the ghost replays their last night together, that argument, and rearranges the furniture in the room back to how it was back in the day. So the maids

You’ve got to be aware that when you make a movie with Disney about a princess, there will be inevitable comparisons. We’re the bastard child of Disney — don’t put that down. We’re conscious of it in the sense that yeah, she’s a princess, but why is she a princess? (story-wise), there’s more catastrophe that can happen. She can’t just be a selfish milkmaid

Since you came into this project already in progress, how involved were you with casting? The only person that I got to cast was Kelly Macdonald. We had Reese Witherspoon on it, she was great, but the movie was taking so long and she had other things that she had to do down there. When I got on, we were going to do a whole ’nother year or so with her, and she was all, “I’ve got these other movies, and that commitment does not work out.” So, scheduling conflicts, she had to leave us, sadly. So I’m going, “Great. I get on and I have no main character. What am I going to do?” Well, I started looking for a main character, and fast — by Monday — because we were flying. We found Kelly Macdonald, and she was available and gung-ho, and she’s great. I didn’t know who the hell she was at all, so just hearing her and seeing little clips, I was thinking, “I don’t know, can she do this kind of comedy? Can she do this kind of character?” And then talking to her and stuff and hearing her read some lines, I was like, “She’s going to be great!”

scene WEEKEND, June 15-17, 2012


Now that your favourite shows like Smash, Revenge and The Good Wife have wrapped up, here’s your guide to what will make for good summertime TV watching: AMBER RAY

Metro in New York

Watch ... Bunheads The Vegas showgirl lifestyle loses its lustre for a classically trained ballerina (Sutton Foster), who impulsively marries an admirer (Alan Ruck) and moves to his sleepy seaside community of Paradise, Calif., where his mother (Kelly Bishop) runs a dance studio — and lives with him and his new bride. Bunheads is also a great choice for those in Gilmore Girls withdrawal — it comes from GG creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and features her trademark machine-gun quips and pop-culture references. Airs Mondays on ABC Spark.

If you miss ... The juvenile antics of Two and a Half Men (especially those of Charlie Sheen). Watch ... Anger Management. FX says Charlie Sheen is re­formed (we’d say reformed-ish) since the melt­down that forced his exit from the No. 1 sitcom last year. Adapted from the film of the same name, this comedy finds Sheen as a guy whose anger issues lead him to be­ come a therapist. He’s got a teen daughter to give him a sense of responsibility, but there’s also a string of ladies interested in the former bad boy. Must be the tiger blood. Pre­mieres June 28 on CTV.

If you miss ... The backstabbing of Revenge. Watch ... Dallas. The Ewing clan is just as contemptuous as you remember from the hit prime-time soap of the ’80s — and now the next generation is involved in the family’s favourite pastime of screwing each other over. Returning principals include Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing; rekindling the family rivalry is J.R. and Sue Ellen’s son John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Bobby’s adopted son, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), who take on the roles of their fathers. The oil fields of Texas remain a focal point, but because this is 2012, expect a few lessons on alternative energy in between all the fussin’ and feudin’. Airs Wednesdays on Bravo.

If you miss ... The high-stakes workplace of The Good Wife. Watch ... The Newsroom. Delivering the news isn’t pretty; the business of delivering the news is even uglier in this behind-the-scenes look at the people who produce a cable-news program. Just as he did on The West Wing, writer Aaron Sorkin has created another community of flawed fast-talkers with noble intentions. Jeff Daniels stars as the news team’s anchor (literally and metaphorically) who tries to deliver “real” stories while his producers and network (Emily Mortimer, Olivia Munn, Sam Waterston, Jane Fonda) fret over ratings. Premieres June 24 on HBO Canada.

“Party” and “rocks” are both words regularly used to describe the MuchMusic Video Awards. But the nation’s music station decided to make it official this year by having party rocking experts LMFAO host their annual shindig on Sunday night. Despite never having hosted an awards show, the duo — made up of Redfoo and Sky Blu — weren’t the least bit surprised when the offer came their way. “I’m surprised more entities don’t have us doing more of this stuff,” says Redfoo, on the phone from the band’s Houston stop on their current Party Rockin’ Tour. Based in Los Angeles, LMFAO (an acronym for Laughed My F*cking Ass Off) found fame via their brash mix of house beats, pop hooks, dance moves

and an ostentatious wardrobe. Their stupidly catchy singles Party Rock Anthem and Sexy and I Know It both hit No. 1 in Canada and the U.S. And while their sound and lyrics certainly have roots in club culture their crossover appeal is what they believe enticed Much into offering them the gig. “The demographic that they want to tune in is our same fan base,” say Redfoo. “And especially now, with a lot of the kids listening to LMFAO and having fun with the videos, the parents now are fans.” The pair logged time riffing on camera for the Grammy’s Red Carpet, but Redfoo says the MMVAs are a far more structured event. “Me and Sky are always on,” he says, “we’re always improving and having fun. That’s what we do. So it’s about capturing the best of that with some guidelines.” MuchMusic organizers have been in regular communication with the band, hammering out a script that allows the two musician’s personalities to shine without derailing the show’s momentum, or breaking CRTC rules. They’re also doing their own research in prep-

Surrounded by superstars

Both Redfoo and Sky Blu have rock royalty in their bloodline. • Redfoo. His real name is Stefan Gordy. He is the youngest son of Motown founder Berry Gordy. • Sky Blu (a.k.a Skyler Gordy). He is Berry’s grandson, making Stefan Skylar’s uncle. • Jermaine Jackson. The one-time Jackson 5 member and Michael’s older brother, was once married to Stefan’s older sister, Hazel, making the two brothers-in-law.

The ‘most exciting part’ of the MMVAs The red carpet. The nation’s music station prides itself on it unique approach to awards shows Ian Gormely

After the show there will be after parties. And after that, there may even be shenanigans in hotel lobbies. But the best way to rub elbows with celebrities at Sunday night’s MuchMusic Video Awards is on the pre-show red carpet. “With the red carpet show, you never know what’s going to happen and that’s the most exciting part,” says Steve Jarman, the show’s supervising producer. The red carpet will overtake John St. between Queen and Richmond for the third time this year, a necessary change after the MMVAs themselves overtook the red carpet’s former home on Queen St. Exactly 6,450 feet of material will be laid down to handle the over 150 exGet in on the action

“The red carpet is a huge celebration. It’s a chance for fans to get up close and personal with their favourite stars.” Steve Jarman, supervising producer of the MuchMusic Video Awards

pected guests who’ll walk along the space’s namesake posing for photos and answering questions “The red carpet is a huge celebration,” says Jarman. “It’s a chance for fans to get up close and personal with their favourite stars.” The nation’s music station has always prided itself on its unique approach to awards shows, holding it in an office building and parking lot instead of a stuffy theatre to create a party atmosphere. That attitude extends to the red carpet where flashy arrivals have become the rule rather than the exception. Ice Cream trucks, ambulances, even giant hamster balls have been used to deliver the stars to the party. Unique transportation is generally discussed with organizers ahead of time. Jarman says organizers do their best to accommodate but sometimes, safety trumps spectacle, like the time one artist wanted to land a hot-air balloon on the street. Planning started earlier this winter and weeks are spent hammering out a runsheet with guest’s scheduled arrival times. But that runsheet often goes out the window within the first five minutes. And that’s just fine with Jarman. “We don’t want to have just a regular red carpet show,” he says. “Our show’s a lot more about the party.” Much Music Video Awards: June 17. 9 p.m. 299 Queen St. W. Free with Wristband.

How it works:

Wrangler’s work is never done Due to the MMVAs’ massive scale, organizers turn to staff when it comes time to assign wranglers to arriving stars. “It’s all staff. We pull people from every part of

this building,” says Jarman. Wranglers meet their artist out on the street and keep an eye on them on the red carpet, then guide them inside the party. They stick with their assigned star for the night, with the expressed goal of ensuring they’re ready and in the right place when it comes time to present or perform.

Will his character live? Revenge’s James Tupper addresses the rumours Q & A. Canadian-born nighttime soap star is as in the dark about his character’s life-ordeath status as you are America’s guilty pleasure nighttime soap, Revenge, wrapped its first season last month. Fans of the show have been hit with twists and turns since its September premiere, so we enlisted Canadian-born star James Tupper, who plays the (supposedly) murdered David Clarke on the series, for some clarity as to what’s really going on in this Hamptons murder mystery. How much do you know about what’s going to happen in future episodes?

I’m following it like everybody else. We get it probably six weeks before you guys and we just read it and then make it. But I have a general idea where it’s going. At the front of every script there’s a big confidentiality agreement that we all sign. So I’m not gonna tell you, but I will tell you that it’s alarming. He’s not locked into having all the same characters. Is your character really dead? My God, I have to tell you: I was pushing a stroller with my three-year-old in it, and a woman yelled at me from across the street, like, “You’re not dead, are you?” It’s the question I get asked the most often and I get asked everywhere. It’s fine, I love it. I love how invested people are in it — it’s awe-

some. You know, as far as I know, I think I’m dead so far. The rumour is that star Emily VanCamp is dating her co-star, Josh Bowman, who plays Daniel. I heard that rumour. I can’t confirm or deny it. I really don’t know, actually. I mean, they get along great on set. They’re discreet. How do you feel about the show being people’s guilty pleasure? When I first started getting interviewed about the show, they were like, “I’m calling it my guilty pleasure.” I realized that it’s so fun to be that dramatic, and allow yourself to go there that people feel guilty. (Laughs.) I think Revenge is a lot of fun wrapped up in this sinister,


“Revenge is a lot of fun wrapped up in this sinister, pretty serious world where a lot of things are at stake.” Actor James Tupper

pretty serious world where lots of things are at stake. What do you think is it about Emily that viewers can’t get enough of? Every guy relates to Daniel not quite having the whole story — like, “What? You’re who?” Emily has mastered the Mona Lisa smile. That’s the great female mystery: “Do you love me, or do you want to kill me? I can’t tell.” (Laughs.)

Sound Check

Heads up hipsters sound check

Alan Cross

One of my downtown Toronto hipster peeps is on the phone. “Where are you off to next?” “Calgary,” I replied. “As soon as NXNE wraps up, I’m

heading for the Sled Island (SI) Music and Arts Festival.” “What’s that?” my hipster friend sniffed, “Some kind of rodeo?” “It’s Western Canada’s largest indie music festival. This is year six.” “Calgary?” he snorted. “You can’t be serious. Everyone knows that there’s no culture in Calgary, let alone any kind of proper music scene. It’s all dirty oil, cowboy hats and horse manure.” Hardly. Tucked in just

before the Stampede (which turns 100 this year, by the way), SI’s goal to bring some life to the downtown core, a place that can feel very, very empty after office hours. It’s also about showcasing all kind of indie culture. For anyone into indie music, film, art, and comedy, SI is a fantastic place to mix it. Hundreds of bands will play venues ranging from Olympic Plaza and the National Music Centre to tiny bars and churches

— with a Royal Canadian Legion or two thrown in. So, who’s coming? Here are of some highlights for what some consider it to be the coolest event of its type in the country: • Feist, (a Calgary native, lest we forget) will play a big outdoor event a week from tonight. • Alt-rock elder statesmen Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Steven Malkmus (Pavement), Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) and

Nomeansno. • Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet (best known for their surf-rock theme, Having an Average Weekend aka the theme from The Kids in the Hall) will reunite for their first show in sixteen years. • Andrew WK promises to keep partying hard with performances, DJing and motivational talks on (what else?) partying hard. • Craig Finn will do double duty, performing

solo and with his day job band, The Hold Steady. • Past Polaris prize nominees, including The Sadies and Timber Timbre. • Lots of super-hot indie bands: Yamantaka / Sonic Titan, Russian Circles, Young Empires, Shabazz Palaces and Parlovr. By the way, my friend should know that Calgary has been designated the Cultural Capital of Canada for 2012. For full details, go to

Lisa Marie Presley in Storm and Grace land New music. Memphis singer’s first album in seven years is a return to her Southern roots Linda Laban Metro World News

Madonna, Gwyneth, Lisa Marie Presley: All-American girls gone Brit-crazy. For Presley, there’s one particular aspect of being an Anglophile that she likes: the local pub. “There are lots of pubs near where we live in Sussex, but there’s one that’s become my local,” says Presley. “I love that I can walk in there and see everyone in the village. I never got that social aspect of it until I lived here. I love to go in and say hello to people. And I love Guinness.” The Memphis belle’s first new album in seven years, the rootsy Americana set Storm and Grace, is being hailed as a return to her Southern roots, but after her last tour, five years ago, all Presley wanted was to ditch them. “I didn’t feel like doing much of anything for a while,”

Top producer

Storm and Grace is produced by 12-time Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett, a master of Americana. • Quote. “I am a fan of his work, he’s done so many great records,” says Presley, who manages enthusiastic praise without gushing. “I sent him some demos and I was really hoping he’d want to work with me. He got back to me so quickly. I was so happy to work with him.”

she says. “I am a writer at heart. I felt that if I was in a different place and got rid of all the things I knew that I’d start writing again. I had to leave everyone and everything I knew behind in order to write.” Presley co-wrote the album in England with several contributors, including two Brits: Pulp guitarist Richard Hawley, who’s also a solo artist with a Southern twang; and Ed Harcourt, a brilliant melodicist and songwriter.

The many evolutions of Sting Q & A. Singer-songwriter sat down with Metro to discuss his iPad app, what he’s listening to these days and the importance of philanthropy Szonja kresinger

Metro World News

Sting (born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner) has donned many hats and experimented with myriad genres during his 35 years in the spotlight. From his early days as the lead in the popular and everchanging new wave band the Police, to a solo career incorporating everything from jazz to new age sounds, to the numerous humanitarian and environmental causes he has lent his celebrity status to, Sting is no stranger to exploring new paths. Yet his most recent tour, Back to Bass, was something of a stripping down for the prolific artist where the path he took was the most basic one. Having just come off the Symphonicity tour, performing arrangements of his songs with large orchestras, he wanted to do something simpler, an approach he’s continuing during his current

summer tour. How did it feel to put your recent box set together, taking a look back at all these years? I’m not a particularly nostalgic person, so initially, it was quite challenging for me to really look back when my instinct has always been to move forward. But I did feel it was worth taking some time to reflect, seeing what I had achieved in the past 25 years. I certainly had a good time living those 25 years, and it is a pretty significant milestone in my career. I thought if ever there was a suitable time to do a project like the box set, this was it. Was there any song you wanted to include but finally dropped? The most challenging part of the process was choosing the songs and inevitably, there were many that didn’t end up on the box set. But asking me to pick my favourites would be like asking me to choose a favourite child! I love them all and each one is unique in their own way. That said, I’m very proud of the end result.

the creative freedom I have, and the ability to do what interests me. I get bored pretty easily and so I always like to do something new and something that is hopefully surprising. I think my audience has come to expect that element of surprise. So I’m really suread what Edmonton 2/3not page comes next, but expect the unexpected.

What types of artistic projects interest you the most? Like I said, I always like to try something new. I can only do what I’m inspired to do. Right now, I’m working on a play for Broadway. We’re in the very early stages, but I’ve been writing a lot of music for that. It’s completely new territory for me and it’s quite exciting.

Why did you decide to have the Sting iPad app? Would you ever consider making music with the help of such gadgets like the iPad? To me, it’s important to embrace new technology and try to evolve with it. I look at the app as a new way of getting music to people. It’s very innovative, but at the same time it reminds

me of the days where you’d purchase an album and get to enjoy all of the photos and liner notes, and really get a sense of how the album was made. That’s missing in the digital age. In terms of making music with something like the iPad, I wouldn’t rule it out. There’s no way of anticipating where technology is going next.

One Great Dad, One Great Gift.

Do you plan a new studio album in the near future? I don’t really have a plan quite yet. I enjoy and appreciate

Paul Williams Still Alive — and kicking Q & A. Singer — now in his 70s — back in a new documentary chronicling his life


“I think that basically there isn’t any real difference between a rock star shooting heroin and a bored housewife in Ohio drinking Listerine. They’re both selfmedicating and probably dealing with their fear and their boredom, their anxiety. ”

Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Paul Williams has led quite the life as a prolific songwriter, an actor and a charming talk-show regular. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he was excited about filmmaker Stephen Kessler featuring him in the new documentary, Paul Williams Still Alive. But Williams is nothing if not a good sport. He spoke with Metro about watching his life chronicled onscreen and not blaming the music business for addiction — and went out of his way not to mention Jay Leno. You seem pretty uncomfortable for much of the film with Stephen following you around. Somewhere (during a tour of the Philippines chronicled in the film), I decided I really liked him. I think he came into the film maybe without a conscious kind of conception of what he wanted. I think he would’ve been thrilled to find me living in a trailer behind a junkyard, playing at the Red Lion nightly, doing the Rainbow Connection with a sock puppet, but the fact is he walked into a life that I was really happy with. I’m 22 years sober and happily married, I have a good relationship with my kids. I’d kind of rebuilt my career. There are some things that are not in the film that he kind of carefully ignores because it interferes with his storytelling.

Were you worried about anything the film depicts about your life? I was really worried about showing it to my kids, especially my daughter. I had editing rights, so I could take anything out that I wanted, but there’s the part where I’m filmed watching the Merv Griffin footage, and I’m just joking about marital infidelity and getting laid on the road, and I thought you can’t leave that in. But when I saw the first cut of the film, I thought you know what? If you’re going to tell the story, you’ve got to leave it in. As the president of ASCAP, how do you think the landscape for songwriters has changed? There was a time when you went to the Papa Bear, which was the record company, and you had this whole machine working to present you to the music-consuming audience that had three networks to watch and had

Top 40 radio. The streams that you fought to get your work into were so minimal, but if you got into that you got everybody. You did the Tonight show, you got everybody. You got played on the Top 40 stations, everybody got to hear those songs. Now

everything has become so fractionalized. The challenges are to found ways to be heard. I think as far as the creativity, it’s spectacular. To me, rap was like urban poetry. As an Academy member, I voted for Eminem and It’s Hard Out There for a Pimp,

a great rap song written for the movies. Every generation has its own music. I love some of those combinations of melodic and... blah blah blah. Who cares what some 71-year-old f— thinks about today’s music? We’ve had the recent passings of Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston. Do you see the music business as a sort of enabler for substance abuse? Those are just the ones that get written about. I think that basically there isn’t any real difference between a rock star shooting heroin and a bored housewife in Ohio drinking Listerine. They’re both self-medicating and probably dealing with their fear and their boredom, their anxiety. They suffer from addiction or alcoholism, and it’s a disease. Some studies proved it in the ’60s. I think that in some ways, as long as I was moving forward and showing up for the gigs and funny and I had the

energy to keep going, there were enablers around me, but I can’t lay any of that off on anybody. I have to really own all of that myself. You were a guest on the Tonight show 50 times. If you were to get back into the talk show circuit, would you prefer talking to Jay Leno or Conan O’Brien? Well you know, it’s funny because I just spent the last two days in Arizona playing golf with Alan Kalter. Alan’s one of my best friends, and he’s the announcer on the David Letterman show. You know, I like (Jimmy) Fallon, I did Fallon’s show this last year and I really like them. I love Conan. I’m learning how to walk like Conan, that’s the main thing. I find that if I throw my elbows heavily to the left and to the right, I can face the day with a little sparkle. And I’m a Letterman addict. My wife and I watch Letterman all the time. You know, that’s pretty much it. I haven’t been watching the Tonight show a lot.

Cadence Weapon reveals more on buzzy third LP By the time he was out of his teens, Rollie Pemberton -— a.k.a. Cadence Weapon — had a much-hyped debut album, a Polaris Prize short-listing and a captive crowd eager to see what he was going to do next. At 26 years old now, he’s glad that period of magnified attention and rigid expectations is in the past. “I’m glad that I had the experience I had when I was younger ... because I got that whole thing out of the way — I made all the mistakes already that I could possibly make,” the Edmonton-reared rapper said. “Now I can just work on refining the music. I don’t have to worry about ... the critical thing, or whether people will buy it. “I feel like I’m unfazable at

this point. Like I can’t be bothered.” It’s that attitude that has enabled the creative fearlessness that’s powered Pemberton’s dogged experimentation since dropping his 2005 debut, Breaking Kayfabe — but three albums into his career, it seems that aural alchemy has finally led Pemberton to a formula he likes. On his debut, Pemberton layered his laconic rhymes over grimy, booming synths, while 2008’s Afterparty Babies probed the edges of house and electro. Though both records showcased his fierce intelligence and endearing sense of playfulness, Pemberton’s latest — the recently released Hope in Dirt City — marks the first time the rapper doesn’t sound as though

Yawn. Next.

“I get kind of bored of things. I’ve got that kind of attention span.” Cadence Weapon, on experimenting with musical choices on his latest album

he’s obscuring his intentions in irony or musical trial-and-error. “I’m more clear about who I am and presenting myself in a straightforward way,” he said. “In the past, I feel like I’ve done a lot of playing more characters and experimenting with the sound, and I think it’s been very hard for the listener to understand if I’m being honest or if I’m being sarcastic or ironic or whatever.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Cadence Weapon made the unusual choice on his latest recording to work with samples, then enlist a live band to replace most of the samples, then sample the music by that band, a process he describes as “confusing.” handout

Scarlett Johansson gets a lot of attention for her beauty, but it’s not something she’s exactly thrilled about. “I don’t like being labelled as ‘the sexiest woman alive.’ As an actress I prefer to maintain the anonymity,” Johansson says in an interview with Grazia Italia. And as for being a role model for other women? She’d rather not. “There are so many wonderful women out there,” Johansson says.

Forget about Katy, it’s the paperwork that stressed Russell out Always the romantic, Russell Brand says the hardest part of divorcing Katy Perry has been all the paperwork. “I suppose a divorce is difficult, isn’t it? Because of the admin. There’s a lot of admin,” he tells the Mirror. Still, his 14-month marriage wasn’t all bad: “Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that’s really good, and then you’re not married, and that’s really good. You just have to have acceptance of things,” Brand says. So how does he find this acceptance so easily? “I don’t want to sound like a lunatic, but if you meditate and do yoga you become attuned to that there is different energy that’s

constant and very, very beautiful,” he insists. “Some people would call it God, some people would call it karma or the cosmos. Me, I call it sexual charisma.”

At first, things seemed pretty nice and tidy with the Chris Brown and Drake brawl that broke out early Thursday morning at Manhattan nightclub W.i.P. Both hip-hop stars have dated Rihanna in the past, both have a habit of gossiping in pop songs, and one has a history of anger management problems: Case closed. But now, Drake’s people are telling TMZ that the rapper wasn’t responsible for the gash on Chris Brown’s face that popped up on Twitter Thursday morning. “Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of

any kind last night at W.i.P,” his rep tells the site. “He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began.” Another source claims that Philly rapper Meek Mill was the one with the problem, and hit Brown with a bottle after a shouting match. No arrests were made, and all of the boldface names were gone by the time police arrived sometime after 4 a.m. Brown, for one, seems to back up at least the bottle part. His Twitter feed has since been airbrushed by publicists, but at one point after the incident read, “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!” Well, someone is certainly getting left out of the Cheesecake Factory mall trip this weekend. As soon as a nasty note surfaces on the bathroom wall, we’re going to call it: Lamest hiphop fight ever.

Talk about a friendly divorce: No prenup for Cox, Arquette In possibly the most amicable split in Hollywood history, Courteney Cox reportedly filed her divorce paper the same day as soon-to-be ex-husband David Arquette, also citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. Like Arquette, Cox is seeking joint custody of their daughter and no spousal support, and she

will represent herself in the proceedings. The biggest discovery is that the couple, married for 11 years before separating in 2010, did not have a prenup, so all of their community property will be divided equally. Cox is worth a reported $75 million, while Arquette is said to be worth $18 million.

No doesn’t mean no for Jake Jake Gyllenhaal is nothing if not persistent. Though Minka Kelly reportedly turned him down flat when he asked her out last fall, the pair apparently did eventually go out a few times recently, according to Us Weekly. “Minka wasn’t into Jake when he first pursued her,”

3 LIFE Safety first

Cooking to perfection • Use an instant-read thermometer to check if meat is finished rather than cutting into it because the natural juices will escape. • Cook food thoroughly — cooking times and temperatures vary for different meat and poultry. • Whole poultry should be fully cooked at 82 C (180 F), burgers at a minimum of 71 C (160 F) and beef, veal and lamb roasts and steaks can vary from 63 C (145 F) for medium-rare to 77 C (170 F) for well done. • When cooking in advance, divide large portions of food into small, shallow containers for refrigeration to ensure safe, rapid cooling.

My dad isn’t much of a drinker. He’s more of a six-pack of beer a year and a sip of wine if the occasion insists type than a trained professional like me. He does have a slight liquid Achilles’ heel when it comes to single malt scotch though, which makes Father’s Day gifting a no brainer. Not a blend of different whiskies, single malts are made from a single grain (barley) and a single water source by a single distillery. All that singularity means a glass of this style of scotch comes jam packed with personality, some of which can be pretty over the top. Islay is Scotland’s southernmost island and its small group of distilleries creates the most aggressive whiskies in the world. Laphroaig 10 Year Old ($70.20 - $84.99) is arguably the nastiest (in a good way). Boozy and medicinal with a pounding palate of peat, iodine and a touch of sea spray; it’s a rambunctious malt that may pose a challenge for those who prefer lighter whiskies. Here’s a tip: Try adding a splash of spring water to your next glass of single malt. It helps round out the forward flavours and accentuates the aromas. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Surprise dad with your skills on the grill Mesquite-Grilled Cheeseburgers with Warm Chipotle Salsa. These aren’t your typical barbecue bites

Ingredients 4 portions Ideal grill: Charcoal Smoke intensity: Strong Prep time: 20 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes • 750 g (1 1/2 lb) ground chuck (80 per cent lean) • 10 ml (2 tsp) ground cumin • 7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) ground black pepper • Kosher salt • 30 ml (2 tbsp) extra-virgin olive oil, divided • 1 small red onion, finely chopped • 1 garlic clove, minced • 4 plum tomatoes, each cut in half lengthwise • 2 large handfuls mesquite wood chips, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes • 45 ml (3 tbsp) finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves • 1 canned chipotle chili pep per in adobo sauce, minced • 15 ml (1 tbsp) fresh lime juice • 4 slices smoked cheddar or smoked Gouda cheese, each about 30 g (1 oz) • 4 hamburger rolls

The basic two-zone fire is an efficient charcoal arrangement for a wide variety of foods. It combines both direct heat (where the food cooks directly above the coals) and indirect heat (where the foods cook above and to the side of the coals).

1. In a large bowl, gently combine beef, cumin, pepper and 7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) salt. Shape into 4 patties of equal size, each about 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick. With your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 2.5 cm (1 inch) wide in the centre of each patty. This will help the patties cook evenly and prevent them from puffing on the grill. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook. 2. Prepare a two-zone fire for high heat (230 C/450 F to 290 C/550 F). 3.

In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is tender, about 3 min-

utes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl. Brush tomatoes with remaining 30 ml (1 tbsp) of oil.

coal and put the lid on the grill. When smoke appears, place tomato halves, cut side up, over indirect high heat. Close lid and cook until tomato juices are bubbling and the skins split, about 12 minutes. Remove from grill. Remove and discard tomato skins and roughly chop tomatoes. Add tomatoes, cilantro, chili and lime juice to onion mixture. Season with salt. Set aside.

5. Drain and add remaining wood chips to charcoal and put lid on the grill. When wood starts to smoke, cook

patties over direct high heat, with lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to medium doneness, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. During the last minute of cooking time, place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt and toast the rolls, cut side down. Remove from grill and build each burger with the salsa. Serve warm.

The new kid on the cooking wine block Mirin-Marinated Short Ribs with Shiitakes and Egg Noodles. Japanese wine tenderizes meats and thickens sauces to create a great glaze Mirin is all about getting sauced. Because that’s where Japanese cooking wine really shines — in sauces.

But first, a misconception. The wretched American product known as “cooking wine” probably has you reluctant to try anything similar. Relax and prepare for a delicious discovery. Mirin is nothing like that. Though once sipped similar to sake, today mirin is exclusively a cooking wine. The clear, viscous liquid has a clean, yet intensely sweet-salty flavour. And while it packs a solid 12 to 14 per cent alcohol, it’s really the sugar that counts. Mirin often is as much as 45 per

Ingredients • 1 1/2 lbs boneless short ribs, thinly sliced • 1 cup mirin • 2 cloves garlic, minced • Salt and ground black pepper • 1 lb wide egg noodles • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil, divided • 7 oz shiitake mushrooms,

stems discarded, thinly sliced • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced • 2 red bell peppers, cored and thinly sliced • 1 tbsp cornstarch • 1/4 cup water • 1/4 cup soy sauce

cent sugar. And chances are you’ve tried it before, though you probably didn’t realize it. Mirin is a key ingredient in traditional teriyaki sauce and often is used as a finishing touch for Japanese soups. Though often inaccurately called rice wine, mirin is made in part from rice. Rice, koji (think good bacteria in yogurt) and a distilled version of sake are combined and held for two months. During this time, the koji converts the starch in the rice into sugar. A lot of it. The solids then are strained and the resulting liquid is the mirin. Mirin is widely available in the Asian or international aisle of just about any grocer. Some mass produced versions are made from grain alcohol and sugar, so check labels before buying.

1. In a large bowl or zipclose plastic bag, combine the sliced short ribs, mirin,

garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

2. When ready to cook, bring

a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the egg noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

3. In a large skillet over mediumhigh, heat 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil. Remove the steak from the marinade (reserving the marinade) and add to the skillet. Cook until the meat is half cooked, about 5 minutes.

4. Transfer the meat to a plate

and set aside. Return the skillet to the heat and add the mushrooms, onion and peppers, then sauté until starting to brown.

5. Return the meat to the skil-

let and add all of the reserved marinade. Bring to a simmer and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.


In a small glass, mix the

cornstarch and water, then add it and the soy sauce to the skillet. Stir well and simmer for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

7. Spoon the steak and sauce over the noodles. Drizzle each serving with a bit of the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil. The Associated Press

Tiger on the hunt at U.S. Open Any comfort Michael Thompson took looking up at the leaderboard at the Olympic Club and finally seeing his name at the top fizzled fast when he saw the player one spot below. Tiger Woods. Thompson shot a 4-under 66 in the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday, taking a threeshot lead in the clubhouse over the hard-charging Woods and David Toms.


“All sports fall into a rhythm, and at the moment our team is in a good rhythm with balance and in team spirit.” Canadian men’s soccer team head coach Stephen Hart on Thursday. Canada is riding the momentum of taking four of six possible points in two World Cup qualifiers. The victories, a spirited 1-0 win in Cuba and 0-0 home draw against Honduras, has placed Canada second in CONCACAF Group C, trailing Panama, which has collected six points in two matches. Now Canada sits idle before resuming the quest for a Brazil 2014 berth with a match in Toronto against Panama on Sept. 7. On the web

Luck turns Torres’ way against Ireland Spain’s Fernando Torres scores past Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given on Thursday in Gdansk, Poland. MATT DUNHAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Euro 2012. Striker nets two as Spain earns share of group lead and ends Irish hope Fernando Torres scored a goal in each half Thursday to give Spain a 4-0 win over Ireland and eliminate the Irish from the European Championship. David Silva and substitute Cesc Fabregas also scored second-half goals as the defending champions improved to four points in Group C, the same as co-leader Croatia. Spain dominated the tempo and scoring opportunities, taking 26 shots and putting the team on course for a spot in the quarter-finals.

Group C





Torres, who scored in the Euro 2008 final, put Spain ahead early after dispossessing Richard Dunne inside the area and scurrying past Stephen Ward before sending an angled shot over goalkeeper Shay Given in the fourth minute. “We wanted to win, to make a better impression than we did against Italy,” said Torres, who became Spain’s third alltime leading scorer with 30 goals in 95 appearances. “The

performance of the team was really good. It was great.” Torres started over Fabregas as the World Cup champions fielded a traditional striker after the attack was led by six midfielders against the Italians. The goal marked the start of Spain’s assault on the Irish, who had started well with Simon Cox forcing Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas into a tricky save in only the second minute. “Unfortunately the goal for the second time after three minutes throws your tactical plan out the window,” said Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni, whose team also conceded early in a 3-1 loss to Croatia. But Spain’s passing only got better, leaving Ireland in a constant chase.

Italy-Croatia The Italians let a first-half lead slip away against Croatia for a 1-1 draw on Thursday, and now may need help to advance to the quarter-finals. •

Andrea Pirlo gave the Italians the lead with a curving free kick in the 39th minute, but Mario Mandzukic was left unmarked to equalize for Croatia in the 72nd.

Armstrong takes action against latest allegations Lance Armstrong is gearing up for a fight over the latest round of doping allegations. Armstrong’s lawyers demanded access to evidence gathered by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, including test results and the names of witnesses who said they saw the seven-time Tour de France champion use performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong has until June 22 to respond in writing to the fresh allegations, the first step of what could be a months-long process. “I’m exploring all my options,” Armstrong said in a telephone interview on Thursday with The Associated Press from Paris.

16-4 rampage through the post-season on Monday night by eliminating the New Jersey Devils. “It was more than you could ever expect,” forward Dustin Penner said. “It’s one of those moments you want to live over and over again. It’s amazing to hear all the support, and to put faces to the cheers we’ve heard all year.” The Kings gathered inside the arena for a packed rally, with fans waving towels and giving repeated standing ovations to every speaker.

Aries | March 21 - April 20.

No doubt you have big plans and no doubt you are going places but keep a sense of perspective.

Taurus | April 21 - May 21.

You won’t lack confidence today but will you match it with common sense? If you don’t, you could find that something you expected to go right goes wrong at the last minute.

Gemini | May 22 - June 20.

Leo | July 23 - Aug. 22. You are sure to have a brilliant idea today but you would be wise to get a second opinion before you put it into effect.


Sagittarius | Nov. 22 - Dec. 21. You may not be thinking clearly


Virgo | Aug. 23 - Sept. 22.

at the moment. So, if there are decisions to be made wait until the Sun changes signs on the 20th.

Libra | Sept. 23 - Oct. 22.

You know what you want and your confidence is such that the thought of failure has not crossed your mind. That’s good. Keep believing.

There is no limit to what you can achieve now but there is a danger that you will take too much for granted and make a silly mistake.

You will be inspired to try something new today. Whether your sense of adventure is a good thing remains to be seen.

A lot of things don’t seem to make much sense at the moment but does it matter? Life is and always will be a mystery. That’s what makes it interesting.

What you need today is a fresh way of looking at the world around you, and the only way to get that is to ask people for their opinions. Will your ego allow it? It should.

You may have something worthwhile to say but that does not mean everyone you interact with is going to believe you, or even want to hear your message.
