Mall’s roof collapse not surprising to all its visitors Elliot Lake. Ottawa woman says her mother was in the mall, just minutes from where the roof collapse took place

An Ottawa woman is relieved that her mother wasn’t seriously injured when a portion of a mall roof in Elliot Lake collapsed Saturday, but says she wasn’t completely surprised it happened. Amy Lachapelle said she was shaken when she got a call from her mother, Suzanne, who witnessed people screaming and running away from the rubble inside the Algo Centre Mall. Her

eyes were burning from the thick dust, but she was otherwise unscathed. The Ontario Provincial Police said at least two people were trapped under the rubble as of late Sunday. At least 22 people were injured and searchand-rescue crews were looking for a number of missing people. “I was really shaken up because five minutes later she would have been in that area, because she was going to the Dollarama, which is where it happened,” said Lachapelle. “She could have been caught under there.” Lachapelle used to live in Elliot Lake, which is about 160 kilometres west of Sudbury, and said the roof has been known to

have cracks and leak water. “We’ve been telling (my mom) not to go to the mall,” said Lachapelle. “So, it’s a little scary.” When reached by phone Sunday from Elliot Lake, Lachapelle’s mother said it sounded like a train was coming through the mall from where she stood in the nearby Zellers store. “I was going to buy some stuff and I heard the noise, lifted my head to see what was coming, and all the structure started to break,” said Suzanne. “People were running, screaming, they were coming at me. “It happened in one second. Those people had no warning.” Joe Lofaro/metro

Girl airlifted to hospital after fall from horse Possibly trampled. Helmet was ‘absolutely critical’ in preventing more serious injury, paramedics say JESSICA SMITH

Paramedics rushed to help a 14-year-old girl who was seriously injured when she fell off her horse in a rural area of South Ottawa on Sunday. Paramedics initially assessed her injuries as “lifethreatening” but later found out her head injuries were less severe. Fortunately, the girl was wearing a helmet — which paramedic operations super-

when the girl fell off her horse on a trail about one kilometre away from Lockhead Road East, paramedics said.

The paramedics walked from the roadway and stayed with the victim until she was picked up by an Ornge Air Ambulance at approximately 2:15 p.m. She was injured by the horse and possibly trampled, said O’Brien. While he couldn’t say exactly how the girl was injured, O’Brien said trampling can injure a rider’s entire body.

Cody Ceci drafted by Ottawa Senators NHL. Ottawa native, chosen 15th overall, has deep roots in community Who knows when Cody Ceci will eventually get to move out of his parents’ house in Orleans? Not only did the 18-yearold defenceman get the chance to play major junior hockey with his hometown 67’s, Ottawa selected him 15th overall at the NHL draft on Friday night. His enthusiastic mother Karen might have been the happiest person in Consol Energy Center. “She likes me at home apparently,” said Ceci. “Getting to stay (in Ottawa) for major junior was special for her and getting the chance to stay there now for the National Hockey League is something else that will be really cool for me and my whole family.” One of the reasons Ceci was so appealing to the Senators was his deep roots in the community. The son of a former CFLer (Parri) and former figure skater (Karen), Ceci is an offensive-minded blue-liner who nearly scored a point per game in the Ontario Hockey League this season. He’ll soon become a player that young kids in Ottawa can look up to.

“I just think that so many good hockey players are developed in the Ottawa area,” said Senators GM Bryan Murray. “I really think that it’s a great influence on minor hockey. I think it’s a great message to young players from Ottawa that if you are a good player we will certainly look at you as

being a candidate for the Senators. “I think that these people become role models.” Ceci estimates that it will be about a 30-minute commute to Scotiabank Place from his parents’ home in Orleans. With the 67’s moving there next season, it’s a drive he’ll be making often

no matter what. By the time he starts playing for the Senators, Ceci expects he’ll move out of his parents’ home. “I guess it’s realistic (to stay) for major junior, but the next level I’ll probably have some money,” he said. “I’ll probably get a spot a little closer.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Ottawa priest tries to calm fears following Morsi’s presidential win Egyptian elections. ‘We are not afraid of them,’ Priest Friar Shenouda says JOE LOFARO

An Ottawa priest tried to calm the trepidation that came over many congregants at St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church Sunday as they learned Mohammed Morsi was declared as the winner in Egypt’s presidential election. “If they try to fight the word of God, fight Christians, then we have to be strong and to defend our faith without fear,” Priest Friar Shenouda told Metro

following Sunday mass. “We are not afraid of them.” Coptic Christians in Ottawa said they are concerned about what the future holds with Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood and how Egypt’s Christian minority population will be treated and they will be watching Morsi’s first move as president because they fear he would force Christians to convert to Islam. Shenouda said he prayed that the runner-up, former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, would win in order to establish a “civil country” and now he will watch what happens next. more coverage of the egyptian election, page 9

Rising concerns

Shenouda says he voted for Shafiq because of his experience in politics and, given his “stable” Islamic family background, he would not put political pressure on any religious group. “This is the concern with the people that Morsi made as he promised to establish an Islamist country,” said Shenouda. • That concern was felt by many congregants at the west-end church. “It’s a difficult period,” said Nasser, who refused to give his full name. “Everybody’s looking around to see what’s going to happen.”

Israeli activists arrested after alleged clashes with police Israeli police say 85 protesters were arrested after clashing with officers and vandalizing banks in Tel Aviv. The demonstrators

had gathered Saturday night to protest the arrest of 12 social activists a day earlier. Some blocked main roads and scuffled with police. Police say others shattered windows on five banks. Media reported that in one case, protesters charged inside a bank and planted a tent, the symbol of social protests that swept the country last summer. Police spokesman Micky

Rosenfeld says police made the arrests to prevent looting. He estimated there were 1,500 demonstrators in the protests, though media reports gave a number four times higher. Activist leader Daphni Leef accused police of brutality, saying officers bruised and humiliated her when they detained her Friday. She was released on bail. the associated press

Islamist Morsi wins Egypt’s first free election Tahrir Square. Selection of Muslim Brotherhood candidate met with joy, skepticism Islamist Mohammed Morsi was declared the winner Sunday in Egypt’s first free presidential election in history, closing the tumultuous first phase of a democratic transition and opening a new struggle with

NATO. Ambassadors to mull response after Syria shoots down jet NATO ambassadors will discuss this week whether to respond to Syria’s downing of a Turkish jet in what Turkey insists was international airspace, although the likelihood of any military action by the alliance is low. The plane’s downing has further hiked regional tensions over the conflict in Syria, where some 40 people were said to have died Sunday in new clashes between rebels and regime forces. The jet’s wreckage was found in the Mediterranean at a depth of 1,300 metres, Turkish state media reported Sunday. The two pilots remain unaccounted for. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the jet was on a training flight to test Turkey’s radar capabilities, not spying on Syria. He said the plane mistakenly strayed into Syrian airspace Friday, but was quickly warned to leave by Turkish authorities and was a mile inside international airspace when it was shot down off the coast of Latakia. Syria insisted Saturday that the shooting was “not an attack” and that the aircraft had violated its airspace. But Turkish authorities say Syria didn’t warn the Turkish plane nor send its own jets to confront it. Unrest

Deja vu?

In October 1989, two Syrian MiG-21s violated Turkish airspace and shot down a Turkish plane on a geographical survey mission, killing all five crew members. Syria at the time promised to severely punish the pilots, who disregarded Turkish orders not to enter Turkish airspace.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was expected to make a statement Tuesday and might announce some retaliatory steps. “No one should dare to test Turkey’s capabilities,” Davutoglu said Sunday. Meantime, at the request of Turkey, NATO’s governing body will meet Tuesday to discuss the incident, said Oana Lungescu, a NATO spokeswoman.

He said pro-government “militias” attacked them. Other opposition figures said police fired tear gas and arrested dozens of students.

Minorities shut out of power in Iraq: Cleric Firebrand. Will direct his lawmakers to support a noconfidence vote; blow for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki The Iraqi cleric whose followers are a swing vote in the nation’s ongoing government crisis said Sunday that the prime minister should resign if he cannot produce reforms. In a rare and wide-ranging press conference, hardline Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr admonished the Shiite-led government, saying it has shut Iraq’s minorities out of power and failed to fix legal systems and other public services. As a result, and to jumpstart the nation’s all but paralyzed government, al-Sadr said he is prepared to direct his party’s 40 lawmakers to support a no-confidence vote against Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki — so long as he is assured other political blocs in parliament provide the rest of

Back story

Al-Sadr has flirted with the prospect of abandoning Maliki for months. The two men have a bitter personal history, going back to when government forces targeted al-Sadr’s militia at the peak of the 2006-08 sectarian fighting that almost pushed the country into civil war. • Also Sunday, an Iraqi press freedom group condemned authorities for ordering the closure of 44 news organizations, including a U.S.funded radio station.

Paraguay. Lugo denounces ouster as president, asks backers to keep peace Fernando Lugo emerged early Sunday to denounce his ouster as Paraguay’s president as a “parliamentary coup” and a “foreordained sentence” that was not based on proper evidence. Lugo said his truncated presidency was targeted because he tried to help the South American nation’s poor majority. Asked whether he had any hope of retaking office, Lugo exhorted his followers to remain peaceful but suggested that national and international clamour could lead Paraguayan lawmakers to reverse his impeachment. “In politics, anything is possible,” said Lugo, who termed the Senate’s sudden vote to remove him a coup by political trial. He also said that Roman Catholic bishops visited him before Friday’s Senate trial for alleged poor performance of duties, and he agreed to accept the outcome of a process he considered illegitimate only to avoid bloodshed. Lugo spoke in a pre-dawn special televised “open microphone” program hosted by a state-funded public television

A statement attributed to the Boko Haram sect and obtained Sunday by The Associated Press said the group is happy about Habibu Bama’s “martyrdom.” Bama, a former soldier, died after sustaining injuries from a gun battle between security forces and the sect in the northeastern city of Damaturu earlier this week, Nigeria’s State Security Service said. The battle occurred from Monday to Tuesday as authorities fought back against the sect that struck six churches, five primary schools, a police station and a police outpost, authorities said.

Harper irks Parti Quebecois — again Secret meetings. The Conservatives affirm willingness to work with Quebec, after secret meetings exposed Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Quebec lieutenant says the Conservatives are prepared to work with whoever is in power in the province — including the sovereigntist Parti Quebecois.

U.S. East Coast. Sea level rising at alarming rate Sea levels are rising much faster along the U.S. East Coast than they are around the globe, putting one of the world’s most costly coasts in danger of flooding, government researchers report. U.S. Geological Survey scientists call the 965-kilometre swath a “hot spot” for climbing sea levels caused by global warming. Along the region, the Atlantic Ocean has been rising at an annual rate three to four times faster than the global average since 1990, according to the study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change. It’s not just a faster rate, but at a faster pace, like a car on a highway “jamming on the accelerator,” said the study’s lead author, Asbury Sallenger Jr., an oceanographer at the agency. He looked at sea levels starting in 1950, and noticed a change beginning in 1990. Since then, sea levels have gone up globally about five centimetres. But in Norfolk, Va., where officials are scrambling to fight more frequent flooding, sea level has jumped a total of 12.19 centimetres, the research showed. For Philadelphia, levels went up 9.4 centimetres, and in New York City, it was 7.11 centimetres. Climate change pushes up sea levels by melting ice sheets in Greenland and west Antarctica, and because warmer water expands. Computer models long have projected higher levels along parts of the East Coast because of changes in ocean currents from global warming, but this is the first study to show that’s already happened. By 2100, scientists and computer models estimate that sea levels globally could rise as

Scientists estimate that sea levels could rise as much as 1.01 metres by 2100.

much as 1.01 metres. The accelerated rate along the East Coast could add about 20 centimetres to 28 centimetres more, Sallenger said. “Where that kind of thing becomes important is during a storm,” Sallenger said. That’s when it can damage buildings and erode coastlines. On the West Coast, a National Research Council report released Friday projects an average nearly one-metre rise in sea level in California by the year 2100, and 0.61 metres in Oregon and Washington. The land mass north of the San Andreas Fault is expected to rise, offsetting the rising sea level in those two states. The USGS study suggests the Northeast would get hit harder because of ocean currents. When the Gulf Stream and its northern extension slow down, the slope of the seas changes to balance against the slowing current. That slope then pushes up sea levels in the Northeast. It is like a see-saw effect, Sallenger theorizes. Margaret Davidson, director of the Coastal Services Center for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Charleston, South Carolina, said the implications of the new research are “huge when you think about it. Somewhere between Maryland and Massachusetts, you’ve got some bodaciously expensive property at risk.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Industry Minister Christian Paradis says the Harper government and Quebec have common interests and would find common ground if the PQ won the next provincial election. The PM’s chilled relationship with Quebec has been under increased scrutiny since The Canadian Press revealed his recent secret meetings in Montreal with former prime minister Brian Mulroney and Liberal Premier Jean Charest. Harper went to them for

advice on the national unity issue, which some fear could rise again if the Parti Quebecois unseat Charest’s unpopular Liberals. Harper and Paradis were at a celebration near Quebec City yesterday for the province’s annual Fête nationale. The Conservatives are trying to revive flagging Tory fortunes in Quebec, where the party won just five of 75 federal seats in the last election. Charest confirmed to re-

porters today that he had met Harper recently, but wouldn’t say what about. He said Quebecers would have a chance to give feedback on the Conservative government’s performance when they vote in the next federal election. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair called the meeting with Mulroney another sign that Harper is out of touch with Quebecers — and hasn’t made efforts to reach out like his party has. THE CANADIAN PRESS

New duty-free rules to draw more Canadian cross-border shoppers Survey numbers. Majority polled said they planned to spend more while stateside, but the changes have been criticized by Canadian shop owners Canadians are in a U.S. shopping state of mind this summer thanks to changes in regulations that allow them to buy more without paying duty, a new survey suggests. The Canadian Press-Harris Decima poll on relaxed crossborder shopping limits that went into effect June 1 found a large majority in favour of the changes — and 54 per cent of those planning a trip stateside said they intended to spend more. Additionally, four in 10 said they were likely to purchase more duty-free goods. The telephone survey of 1,000 was conducted be-

tween June 14 and 18 and is considered accurate plus or minus 3.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. As outlined in the March budget, the duty-free threshold on stays longer than 24 hours rose to $200 from $50 beginning this month. The limit on stays longer than 48 hours increased to $800 from the current twotiered levels of $400 and $750, depending on the length of stay. In the poll, seven in 10 Canadians said they supported the higher duty-free limits, and eight of 10 of vacationers to the U.S. backed the changes. The changes have been criticized by the Retail Council of Canada as just one more blow to merchants who cope with higher costs and must compete with U.S. competitors that often get a better deal from suppliers. With the new rules in place for a little more than three weeks, it is still too ear-

Economic impact

“Cross-border shopping tends to be downplayed by officials and the impact on the Canadian economy, but I do think it’s quite significant.” BMO economist Doug Porter, who says today’s shoppers would likely realize somewhat fewer savings because the loonie has dropped below parity in recent weeks.

ly to determine if Canadians have stepped up their shopping habits, said Karen Proud of the Retail Council. But she believes there will be an impact on retailers. A comparison study published by the Bank of Montreal in April estimated that Canadian store owners lose about $20 billion a year to cross-border shopping, although with many shoppers not reporting purchases, the exact worth of cross-border shopping is difficult to calculate. the canadian press

Breastaurants becoming a booming niche Valerie Chaira carries lunch from the kitchen at the Tilted Kilt, in Tempe, Ariz., in this May 16 file photo. The Tilted Kilt is part of a booming niche in the beleaguered restaurant industry known as breastaurants, or sports bars that feature scantily-clad waitresses. These small chains operate in the tradition of Hooters, which pioneered the concept in the 1980s but has struggled in recent years to stay fresh. The United States’ top three “breastaurant” chains behind Hooters each had sales growth of 30 per cent or more last year, according to Technomic, a food-industry research firm. They still represent less than one per cent of the nation’s top restaurants, but the upstart chains are benefiting as other mid-priced options like Applebee’s and Bennigan’s have experienced declines during the economic downturn. Instead of relying on lust alone, the new crop of restaurants is growing by offering new themes (think: rustic lodges and Celtic pubs) and varied menus (think: pot roast and shepherd’s pie instead of just burgers and wings). In other words, they’re hoping maybe people really are coming in for the food. Matt York/the associated press

Economy. Feds reject economist’s brief The Harper government has firmly rejected a McGill University economist’s prescription for surviving the next financial meltdown. A newly released briefing note shows Christopher Ragan’s proposal to strengthen oversight of the Canadian economy went all the way to Stephen Harper, himself a former economist. The distinguished economist said a high-level Finance Department group, known as the senior advisory committee, needs to be restructured to give the governor of the Bank of Canada more input and to ensure the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.

Center launched the website earlier this month as a way to make leaked documents available publicly.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper the canadian press

is a permanent member. Ragan says the nonlegislated body served Canada well during the 2008-09 global meltdown, but may

be blind to the next financial disaster — and the country should not become complacent because of past success. A Feb. 22 memo to Harper shows the suggestion was given serious consideration — but ultimately rejected in favour of the status quo. The heavily censored fourpage document was released to The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. The McGill professor says he’s not surprised about the government’s inaction, given that Canada survived the 2008-09 crisis in relatively good shape. the canadian press

Tickets, please! more delays on paper-free express


It’s all in your head

Urban compass

Steve Collins

OC Transpo’s Presto system will be all tap and no go until next February (fingers crossed; successive rollout dates have become decreasingly credible as they’ve flown by). Riders, in the meantime, will resort to that tried-and-true backup technology, paper. Fare increases that were clearly designed to push riders from the bus ticket towards Presto have logically and fairly been postponed until there’s actually something to push them towards. Until then, those high-tech green card readers will perch inert on the buses, idling away their life cycles and accumulating their first layer of graffiti. Transpo’s resulting revenue losses, estimated at $100,000 a month, already have the city squabbling over the bill with the province and private partners — and not in the gallant “Oh, I insist on picking this up, your money’s no good here” way, either. Bluesfest’s own planned digital revolution, a showcase of electronic dance music heralding the replacement of paper tickets with RFID bracelets and cashless beer and merch sales, also had to be scaled back this month, but the festival’s retreat was more orderly, a partial rollout instead of a blanket postponement. Tara Ferguson, project co-ordinator for the RFID program, expresses some sympathy for what Transpo’s going through with Presto. “It takes a phenomenal amount of resources on both the providers, either Bluesfest or OC Transpo, and the company that is sourced to do it, so either Accenture or Intellitix in our case,” she said. Bluesfest has managed to shed the paper ticket, although some die-hards who bought theirs back in February may be flashing old-school stubs. The cashless payment system proved a little trickier, and will be offered only to a limited test group this year. “When you’re doing a rollout like that you have to have an all-hands-on-deck mentality,” Ferguson said. “Which we do, but you also need to do a lot of advance planning and make sure deadlines are being met, and in our case we were watching some deadlines happen and going, ‘OK, they’re not quite where we’d like them to be with this.’” Given the persistent money troubles faced by the Capital Hoedown, this might not be the most opportune year for any festivals to start refusing patrons’ cash, anyway. Logistical hang-ups often start with an inadequate plan. For example, we invited company over for a barbecue yesterday, despite having no barbecue, nor much of anything to sit on in the area where the grill should be. The local Loblaws, happily, had both. What they don’t have, thanks to network trouble, was the capacity for debit or credit transactions. Once again, it was time to engage paper backup systems, cash in this case. Fortunately, the in-store ATM was still functioning, and dispensed a reassuring wad of good old-fashioned bills. Ottawa is a lumber town that grew up to be a leading producer of omnibus bills, talking points and white papers, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that kicking our centuries-old paper habit is proving tricky. The concept of the “paperless office” has become an old workplace joke since predictions in the ’70s that computers would banish all that unsightly pulpy clutter. Instead, the digital age made it easier than ever to crank out great piles of paper in a fraction of the time, and offices became ever-hungrier consumers of the stuff. I’ve still got my Bluesfest ticket for July 17, 2011, the night the MBNA stage fell. Bluesfest offered refunds for that night, but I didn’t bother. My music-loving sorta-daughter (family is complicated) was right in front of the stage that night. If the stage had fallen forward into the crowd, I might not have seen her graduate this spring. No refund could possibly have made a difference. That obsolete, year-old strip of paper, bearing the date and the water stains from that night’s freak storm, is a tangible, unique souvenir for me in a way that a chipped plastic wristband may never emulate.

Photography awards

Image of living brain wins contest A close-up shot of a living human brain has been announced as the overall winner in this year’s Wellcome Image Awards, a prestigious competition that celebrates medical photography. Taken during a surgical procedure to treat a patient with epilepsy, the image shows “the beauty and fragility of this enigmatic organ,” a Wellcome spokesperson says.

Official’s viewpoint

“Here you can see the vibrant richness of colour you’d never see when the brain is hidden inside our skulls or when it’s dead in a jar.” Catherine Draycott, head of Wellcome Images and a member of the judging panel.


Cerebral photography

• Judge’s description. “The arteries are bright scarlet with oxygenated blood, the veins deep purple and the ‘grey matter’ of the brain a flushed, delicate pink,” judge Prof. Alice Roberts said. • How the photo was shot. Taken before an “intracranial electrode recording procedure,” in which a flexible electrode grid was placed on the brain’s surface for two weeks to monitor its activity. The surgeon then used the recordings to find problem areas of the brain to be removed.

• Medical photography. Photographers have to work around medics with no control over lighting, et cetera. “The conditions are controlled for the surgeon, not the photographer,” Draycott notes. • Secret to success. Draycott points to the “easily identifiable human factor” as key to the winning image. Other images included close-ups of a moth fly and a lavender leaf (pictured).

Anna Silk plays Bo, the heroine of Lost Girl. HANDOUT

Anna Silk stays smooth in her role as Lost Girl’s Bo Third season. Actress had her doubts about playing a ‘sex creature,’ but now is excited to further explore the world of the Fae STEVE ERAMO

R&B singer Maxwell cancels short summer tour due to vocal cord edema and hemorrhage

There is some tension this particular Thursday afternoon in May on the Toronto set of Lost Girl, but happily it is all of a fictional nature. Our heroine, Bo, who has been injured and looking none-too-well, is having a difficult time trying to convince her crime-fighting allies that they need to change strategy when it comes to catching the baddie of the week.

She finally succeeds in persuading her ex-lover and police detective Dyson to go along with her plan, much to the chagrin of his colleague. “Cut! That was great,” says director Ron Murphy. This above scene is from one of the hit supernatural show’s third season episodes. For those unfamiliar with Lost Girl, the series follows the adventures of Bo, a Succubus (a supernatural being who feeds off the sexual energy of others) and member of a race of uber-humans known as Fae. Having walked in Bo’s leather boots for two seasons and now a third, actress Anna Silk is a perfect fit for the role, even though she initially had some doubts about the project. “When I originally received the (pilot) script, I read the tagline for it, which was

something like, ‘Supernatural sex creature who needs sex to survive,’ and I thought, ‘Yeah, right. What the heck is this?’ recalls Silk. “Then, however, I read the script, which was written by (series creator/executive producer) Michelle Lovretta, and discovered that she wrote this really complex, cool, female lead character who is a sexual creature but in the most vulnerable sort of way.” Although it aired halfway through the show’s first season, episode eight was, in fact, Lost Girl’s pilot episode and the first thing ever filmed for the series. Silk still remembers working on it as if it were yesterday. “We had 10 days to film the pilot, which was a luxury because we don’t have that many days now to shoot an episode,” jokes the actress. “The pilot is quite special to me. We filmed it about

a year before we went to series, so if you watch it, we all look a little different. We’re wearing less make-up and the tone of the show is somewhat darker. I still think it’s one of our greatest episodes and I love the grittiness of it.” Prior to Lost Girl, Silk appeared in a number of madefor-TV movies as well as gueststarred on such series Mutant X, Missing, Angela’s Eyes, ‘Til Death Do Us Part and Ghost Whisperer. Of all her small screen roles, two remain especially memorable to the actress. “I really loved the way that they wrote my character of Cassidy on (the TV show) Being Erica,” she says. “She turned out to be a very popular character and I enjoyed the real relationship that they created between Erica (Erin Karpluk) and Cassidy.

“Honestly, I’ve been fortunate enough so far to do a number of really cool things as an actress, including Bo ... I love the fact that she resonates with so many people. Also, the Fae world is so vast. We have so much still to explore about it,” enthuses Silk. Being Bo

Anna Silk interprets her character in Bo as both sensitive and vulnerable. • “Because I really made Bo my own in the audition process, the show’s writers and producers responded to that and very much tailored the character to me, which is a total gift,” she says.

After sending his love to Rome, Woody Allen is on to his next project Self-imposed exile. Filmmaker plans to return to the U.S. for his next movie, after making eight while traipsing Europe On a sweltering Manhattan day, it’s hard not to think of Woody Allen’s old line about preferring air conditioning to the Pope. Allen’s Park Avenue office and screening room are a cool sanctuary, far off the Manhattan street and away from the heat. Asked if he was looking forward to the New York premiere that evening of his latest film, To Rome With Love, he answers “no” with comical quickness. Depending on how you count, To Rome With Love is the 76-year-old filmmaker’s 45th film, a total he’s amassed by making, with remarkable consistency, a film a year. It’s also his eighth film made in self-imposed exile, traversing European capitals. His last movie, the Oscar-

nominated Midnight in Paris, was his biggest box-office hit ever, a success Allen greets only with a shrug. To Rome With Love — as much of a European postcard as Allen has made — is an ensemble farce about numerous characters (Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Penelope

How to stay dry in a place called Bathtub Beasts of the Southern Wild. Cinematographer talks making a great film in lots and lots of water ned ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Cinematographer Ben Richardson is on to something. The startlingly eye-catching work he did on his first feature film as a Director of Photography, Beasts of the Southern Wild from writer-director Benh Zeitlin (also a first-timer), earned him an Outstanding Cinematography award at Sundance, where the film debuted. The earthy and ethereal film went on to win big at Cannes as well, picking up critical praise everywhere along the way. But given the films subject — a young girl and her father living outside the levies of New Orleans in a flood-prone community called Bathtub — it wasn’t the most comfortable gig for a man with a camera.

When Woody Allen was asked if he ever felt he had accomplished the film he set out to make at the start, he had this to say: “A couple of times I’ve felt, ‘Gee, I’ve come very close to my original concept here and this is nothing to be ashamed of.’... For me, the trick is to execute my original intention. The audience may wind up hating my original intention. And it may be that when I prostitute the film and don’t live up to the original intention — let’s say like Hannah and Her Sisters — it’s a big success, and a bigger success than if I had achieved my original idea. There’s no correlation between what the public likes and what I’m after. I’m in a different world.”

This looked like a pretty involved shoot, physically. Directors and the rest of the crew can be a little bit more cautious about what they do, but actors and the person physically holding the camera are two sets of people who can’t. If the shot demands that you’re in the water and the camera’s in the water, you get in the water. It was a genuinely conscious process. I never wanted to say, ‘I shouldn’t do this’ or ‘I couldn’t do this.’ I wanted to just get in there and do it. How did you deal with the physical challenges of the shoot? I had a very, very serious strategy for dealing with it. In the earliest days of pre-production, as we were jumping in and out of the bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, climbing up in trees and walking on hard concrete floors in the hospital and stuff, I just started to panic because I was like, ‘I could literally mess myself up.’ If I sprain something or if my feet start hurting, I’m operating the movie

starring Baldwin — that will take him back to New York. Allen chatted with The Associated Press about filmmaking Woody’s way: You’ve often described filmmaking as a constant process of disappointment in not realizing your initial idea. So what keeps you trying? You always think that you’re going to do better the next time. It’s deceptive. Sometimes you do better than the last time, sometimes you don’t. It’s like a gambler. You’re constantly thinking, ‘This next one, I’m going to really nail it. Everything’s going to be perfect.’ And you do it, and of course it’s far from perfect. What was your initial concept for To Rome With Love? The people in Rome who distribute my films (Medusa Film) always kept saying, “Come to Rome and make a film.” Finally, they really got

serious. Then I was faced with having to write something for Rome. Did you ever think that you’d be part filmmaker and part travel guide? No, I never wanted to or expected to make a film outside of New York. New York became very, very expensive. The same $18 million spent in Barcelona or Rome goes much further there. I’ve had six other offers since then... I don’t know if I could do that indefinitely. Your earlier films seemed to be more searching and questioning. You can see them as searching, but you would find that after time, the conclusions are grim. No matter what kind of sugarcoating people put on it — whether it’s a religious sugarcoating or a philosophical sugarcoating — no matter what they tell you, the facts are grisly.

So what, then, is the point of art or a movie? Some look for enlightenment when they open a book or go to a movie. The answer to your question, I think, on both sides of the camera or the novel: Distraction. I’m obsessed with: Can I get this actress or my third act to work? I’m distracted. I’m interested in that so I don’t sit home and think, ‘Gee, life is meaningless. We’re all going to die. The universe is pulling apart at breakneck speed.’ So I’m distracted with relatively solvable trivia. The Associated Press

the long term, and are prone to considerable welfare problems,” Monica Engrebretson of advocacy organization Born Free tells TMZ, citing concerns that ill-prepared fans will buy the notoriously difficult pets. “Many Moluccan cockatoos develop self-destructive behaviour including feather plucking and self mutilation not known to occur in the wild.” Poor Lady! Reality TV is the most oppressive captivity known to man, and can cause feather-plucking among even marginally intelligent newspaper editors. Cee Lo, if you want a colourful companion that speaks in near gibberish, we suggest an intern.

Hot on the heels of news of his split from Vanessa Paradis comes word that Johnny Depp is reportedly getting close to Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, according to the Daily Mail. Heard was reportedly spotted hopping on and off his private plane in

Las Vegas while Depp was in town to promote Dark Shadows, and since then she’s been a regular visitor to the New Mexico set of Depp’s next film, The Lone Ranger. And on top of that, he reportedly bought her a horse so that they can go riding together.

Travolta faces new lawsuit Author Robert Randolph — whose book You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again recounts alleged incidents of John Travolta engaging in sexual acts with men at bathhouses — is now suing the actor and his legal team for spreading false claims about Randolph’s mental health in order to diminish his credibility, according to TMZ. But Travolta’s camp thinks that’s crazy as well. “The lawsuit filed by

Robert Randolph is absurd. The suit is based on a privileged communication and it will promptly be thrown out by the court,” Travolta’s rep says in a statement. “To evaluate the credibility of Robert Randolph and his ridiculous lawsuit, one need look no further than his own statements published on his website stating that he sustained ‘permanent brain damage’ and had to ‘retrain’ his brain.”

Kristen Stewart plays an independent princess in Snow White and the Huntsman, a modern take on the famous tale. HANDOUT

Cinderella syndrome gets turned on its head Modern makeover. New movie princesses want more than a prince; they want independence For modern movie princesses, looking pretty and marrying a prince aren’t enough. Take Mirror Mirror, where Snow White rescues her prince from an evil spell, or Snow White and the Huntsman, where she becomes the hunter who avenges her father, marries none of her suitors and confidently runs her kingdom alone. Further upending the Cinderella syndrome at a theatre near you this weekend is Pixar’s first-ever female protagonist, the feisty Scottish Princess Merida of Brave, who demands to forge her own independent future. She’s also a far better shot than any of her would-be princes. This new breed of bigscreen princess not only reflects the independence — and athleticism — of young women today, but also Hollywood’s increasing willingness to tell their stories. The success of Bridesmaids, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Hunger Games showed us that audiences respond to well-drawn heroes, regardless of their gender, thus setting the stage for the classic literary convention of the princess to get a modern makeover.

A New Hope? •

Princess Merida, voiced by Kelly Macdonald, is the main character of the Disney/Pixar film Brave. HANDOUT

“It is time for a new paradigm,” said Brave producer Katherine Sarafian. “We’ve got an opportunity to make more characters that are relatable to modern girls” and audiences at large. These empowered young princesses point to a gradual undoing of the so-called Cinderella syndrome or Cinderella complex, a theory developed in the early 1980s that says that, like Cinderella, many women seek something external — such as a rich and handsome prince — to change their lives

and harbour a deep desire for dependence. “It’s not enough for women in the 21st century just to sit around and wait and be pretty,” said Karen Sternheimer, a professor of sociology at the University of Southern California. “An empowered heroine encountering a challenge reflects the whole mythology of individualism. What’s new is the means of achieving success. It used to be through beauty or marriage only. That hasn’t gone away, but now it can also be through a skill or encoun-

tering a challenge that traditionally we’ve heard in stories about men.” In developing Princess Merida’s story in Brave, Pixar writers and artists thought more about character than gender, Sarafian said. They considered Merida’s motivations, her frustrations and what makes her brave. “If you focus on her being a girl, it’s easy to get stuck in the trappings and rules and what a princess movie dictates,” the producer said. “We strip out gender, princess, fairy tale and

Rupert Sanders, the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, which was released earlier this month, said the heroic journey of his princess (played by Kristen Stewart) makes her “almost the female Luke Skywalker.”

just focus on character.” Merida, voiced by Kelly Macdonald, is a headstrong teenager in 12th century Scotland with a mane of fiery red curls and a temperament to match. Though her mother lovingly prepares her for her royal role, the young princess is more interested in sword fighting, archery and riding her horse through the forest. When she blatantly defies an ancient tradition, she jeopardizes the future of her family and the kingdom. “The story is not about the circumstances surrounding her,” Sarafian said. “She makes the core decision that throws things off. ... and it’s not something else really saving her. Even though there is a little magic in the story, she is really the driving force.” And she does it all in a dress. “Merida is not trying to pass herself off as anything other than a girl,” the producer said. “She just wants to be her own person.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Magazine piece strikes chord A first-person lament by a former State Department official on Why Women Still Can’t Have It All has attracted more visitors to The Atlantic magazine website in a 24-hour period than any magazine story the site has ever published. The piece by Anne-Marie Slaughter described her struggles balancing a high-powered career with raising her two sons. Clicks were “approaching 450,000 uniques,” magazine spokeswoman Natalie Raabe said Friday, citing data from Omniture. The piece also had more than 75,000 Facebook recommendations, not counting the links posted on individual Facebook pages, where friends engaged in debate about work-life balance. “I knew this was going to resonate,” said Slaughter in a phone interview, but “I did not expect it to go viral quite this fast.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Shake up your Cobb salad 1. Heat the grill to medium-

high. Season the turkey strips with salt and pepper.

2. Using an oil-soaked paper towel held by tongs, oil the grill grates. Add the turkey and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until they reach 165 F. Set aside to cool slightly. 3.

Meanwhile, set the scallions and tomatillos on the grill. Char the scallions for 3 minutes and the tomatillos for 3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool.

Sometimes you just have to mess with tradition. The classic Cobb salad seemed like a fine place for it. This basic chopped salad generally consists of chicken, hard-boiled egg, avocado, tomato, bacon, blue cheese and greens. It’s typically arranged on a plate in neat rows of ingredients to be mixed together by the diner. We decided to mess it up. In the most literal way. We brought this composed salad right out to the grill, making it a perfect choice for a weekend barbecue.

We throw the bacon in a skillet on the grill alongside the turkey. We even fry the eggs on the grill, too. Because who wants to boil eggs in the heat of summer? While we had the grill going, we charred up some scallions and tomatillos and blended them into a tangy herb vinaigrette. Once we had some smoky and tangy flavours, we countered them with creaminess of Gorgonzola and avocado. Serve it all on a bed of ice cold romaine. But not in pretty little rows. Pile it all on the plate and have at it.

Place an oven-safe skillet on the grill. When the skillet is hot, add the bacon and cook until crisp. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain.


Discard most of the fat from the skillet, then return it to the grill. Crack the eggs into the skillet, keeping them from touching, and fry as desired.


In a blender, combine the charred scallions, tomatillos, red wine vinegar; thyme, sugar and olive oil. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.


On each of 4 serving plates, place half a romaine heart. Pile on turkey tenders and avocado slices. Drizzle the vinaigrette over everything. Add slices of bacon, an egg, crumbled Gorgonzola and sliced tomato to each serving. alison press



Ingredients Start to finish: 1 hour • 1 pound turkey tenderloin, cut into long strips • Salt and ground black pepper • 4 scallions • 4 tomatillos, husks removed, halved • 8 strips of bacon • 4 eggs • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme • 1 teaspoon sugar • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 2 romaine lettuce hearts, halved lengthwise • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced • 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese • 1 tomato sliced

A chicken salad that’s light, tangy and perfect for summer Like many summer favourites, chicken salad has all the makings of a refreshing, light meal... except for all that mayonnaise. An easy way to lighten it up is to switch it out for our favourite creamy substitute, non-fat plain Greek yogurt. We also opted to grill the chicken, an easy way to pump up the flavour while adding virtually no fat. For this recipe, we freshened up our salad by adding some berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend that can feature any number of seasonings, but often includes ginger, cardamom, garlic, cumin and chilies. If you can’t find it or you prefer something a little more tame, switch it out for another spice blend, such as curry powder or Italian seasoning. For even more flavour and some textural contrast, we added chopped Peppadew peppers. You usually can find these alongside the olives at the grocer. Cherry peppers also would work. After some chopped fennel bulb, a handful of toasted almonds and some grapes, we were finished. We like to serve this salad stuffed in wholewheat pita pockets with

salad greens, but you also could spoon it over a bed of greens for a hearty salad.

1. Heat the grill to mediumhigh.

2. Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound the meat to an even 1/2 inch thickness. Season with salt and black pepper.

This lean but satisfying salad uses local ingredients and is topped with a yogurt and strawberry dressing.

Soak a crumpled paper towel with the oil. Clasping the paper towel with tongs, oil the grates of the grill. Grill the chicken breasts for 4 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches 165 F. Set aside to cool, then cut into small chunks.

1. Place chicken on greased grill over mediumhigh heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, 12 to 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes.

5. In a large bowl, combine the berbere with the yogurt, Peppadew peppers, fennel, grapes, almonds and the cooled chopped chicken. Mix well, then season with salt and pepper.

2. On each of 4 large salad plates, place 500 ml (2 cups) of the salad greens, 125 ml (1/2 cup) of the strawberries, 50 ml (1/4 cup) of the peas and 30 ml (2 tbsp) of the green onions.

Driving smarter, better and cleaner Fuel efficiency. How Canadians are travelling further with a few simple changes to their driving routine Ben Knight

Halifax to Vancouver, 6,339 km, on less than five tanks of gas. That’s the record-setting result of Shell Canada’s Smarter Driver Challenge, where a team of drivers spent last week making the most fuel-efficient cross-continent drive on record. “Saving fuel saves you money, saves you stress, and is a safer way to drive,” says Lindsey McAndrews, a communications rep for Shell. “Fuel efficiency is now the number-one concern of Canadian car-buyers. It’s what people go into dealerships and ask for the most.” The drive was the brainchild of John and Helen Taylor, who have earned a global reputation as the world’s most fuel-efficient couple. After arriving In Vancouver on Friday, they now hold 93 different world records for covering more distance on less gas. The Taylor’s team of drivers included Alex Debogorski of TV’s Ice Road TruckBy the numbers

ers and officials from such environmental watchdogs as Pollution Probe and the Pembina Institute. Driving a well-tuned 2012 Volkswagen Passat, they needed only 5.59 litres of regular gas to cover each 100 km. The total fuel bill, Atlantic to Pacific? Just $453.

There was no special equipment involved. Just good maintenance, and a few canny driving tips. “Don’t speed,” McAndrews says. “You lose 22 per cent of your fuel economy between 100 and 110 km/hour. Use really steady, gentle pressure on the gas pedal. Leave a nice

space cushion between yourself and the car in front of you, so it’s safer driving.” Leaving space in front means you don’t have to use your brakes nearly as often. And that leads to significant fuel savings, as well. “With almost no practice, the average person can see a

10-per-cent improvement in their fuel efficiency, just by being conscious of not being a lead-foot. That means you’re saving at least 12 cents a litre.” There are other, more subtle benefits as well. “You’re never stressed out,” McAndrews notes. “You

know where you’re going, and you’re calm. You’re not flooring the gas on every stop light. You’re not riding people’s bumpers.” And now that the record’s been set? “Once someone sets a record, people want to break it,” she concludes.

When Edward Yao’s older sister graduated from Yale and went on to become a lawyer, he thought about his future. “I wanted to be the bread winner for the family that they could rely on and be proud of. The only way to surpass her was if I started my own company.” It was on a trip to China

You get people together to get a discount and it’s a big thing in China.” He convinced childhood friend Andrew Hutchings to become his partner and they went to work creating TeamBuy. “Today we’re operational coast to coast,” says the now 25-year-old. “From baby supplies to travel, you name it, we have it. Our run rates exceed 30 million dollars annually. We have just over 100 people and we are happier than ever.” Edward, his sister, Mom and Dad have a lot to smile about these days.

What are the drawbacks? Some students like a shorter term so they can experience more topics over time. The sheer number of classes is fewer when you have fewer terms.

How did Fordham arrive at a trimester system? The MBA has always been the largest master’s program at Fordham, and it was largely a part-time program. We wanted to make it as flexible as possible for people that had to work. But we’re not keeping it because ‘this is the way it’s always been done.’ Current students like the flexibility.

No need to go away to get away Homegrown fun. Ontario offers both seasoned and rookie travellers an incredible range of experiences peter doyle For Metro

This summer, try a new activity or destination. Here are a few ideas:

Take a bike tour of Prince Edward Country Those in the know call it “The County.” A large peninsula that juts out into Lake Ontario between Belleville and Kingston, The County is a treasure trove of wineries, orchards, artists’ studios, sand dunes and beaches. The County is also a cyclists’ dream: little travelled, well-maintained roads connect dozens of pretty towns, quaint bed and breakfasts, parks, antique shops and res-

taurants. Bloomfield Bicycle Company — located in the town of the same name — offers everything from rentals and maps to equipment and repairs. Camp in Algonquin Park Canada’s oldest provincial park is also one of its largest — more than 1.5 times the size of Prince Edward Island. Algonquin accommodates every type of outdoor enthusiast: From casual fishers and day-trippers to hardbitten canoe campers who

spend two weeks or more deep in the backcountry. Pack up the car and pitch your tent at one of more than 1,200 campsites along the Highway 60 corridor, or hike or canoe in to a backcountry site. The park’s interpretive centres offer a variety of programs to help you learn more about the great outdoors.

and Sainte-Marie among the Hurons (on Georgian Bay, near Midland) all enable visitors to experience distant eras of Ontario’s rich history. Authentic and replicated buildings and artifacts, along with knowledgeable guides dressed in period costume, will sharpen your appreciation for the past.

Take a Trip Back in Time Upper Canada Village (near Cornwall), Fort William (Thunder Bay)

Explore Toronto’s waterfront Although the city of Toronto stretches for many kilometres away from the

lake, the waterfront area is packed with great activities and attractions, including the CN Tower, Hockey Hall of Fame, historic Fort York and Rogers Centre (home of the Blue Jays). Harbourfront, a centre for cultural events and performances, is only a few blocks away. On a hot summer’s day, take the short ferry ride to Centre Island, where the kids can laugh themselves silly on the rides at Centreville Amusement Park.

Nothing says summer like the beach Just beachy. The east coast of Lake Huron is the perfect spot for a summer vacation peter doyle For Metro

Some of the finest beaches in the world are found along the east coast of Lake Huron. With pure sand lake bottoms, still waters and warm shallows perfect for youngsters, Lake Huron beaches are an ideal focal point for a memorable family vacation. You can follow Highway 21 from Pinery Provincial Park through Grand Bend to Bayfield in less than half an hour, but could easily fill a week with the diverse summer fun accessible along this stretch of Lake Huron shoreline. Pinery Provincial Park contains most of the remaining

oak savannah woodland to be found in North America. Explore this rare and beautiful ecosystem along miles of trails, beaches or quiet reaches of the Old Ausable Channel. Whether you want to quietly tour the woodlands, dip a paddle, ride along extensive bike trails, or enjoy one of the many programs or guided hikes offered, the Pinery is an inviting location to set up camp or visit for a day trip. Minutes away, the beach town of Grand Bend is southwestern Ontario’s summer hot spot. Along the strip, great restaurants, shopping, mini golf, arcades and batting cages create a bustling atmosphere. A teenager’s paradise, the strip empties onto the main beach, a remarkably wide expanse of sand hosting thousands of sun worshippers and site to national volleyball tournaments each summer. For families, the quieter South Beach is a relaxing spot

to splash in the shallows and build sandcastles. Fifteen minutes further up the road, the picturesque village of Bayfield offers a soothing break from the hubbub of Grand Bend. A quiet, leafy enclave of galleries, shops and parkland, Bayfield is well known as a retreat for artists, writers and musicians. Explore the galleries, browse antiques and savour a gelato. You can drop the kids off at Kryart Studios where a professional artist will mentor them in creating a unique keepsake, be it an original canvas or a customized skateboard. For those nights not spent around a campfire, you can enjoy one of the last remaining drive-ins in Canada. The StarLite shows first-run movies on two big screens. Or take in a play at the Huron Country playhouse — its production of Annie is a family favourite and runs later this summer.

Euro 2012. Another penalty shootout loss for England at a major tournament After two hours of clever, often dominating but in the end fruitless play, Italy found the answer against England. Penalty kicks. Alessandro Diamanti scored the decisive kick Sunday to send Italy through to the European Championship semifinals with a 4-2 win in the shootout following a 0-0 tie with England. Italy will next play Germany in the semifinals on Thursday in Warsaw, Poland. Defending

champion Spain plays Portugal on Wednesday in Donetsk, Ukraine. “We deserved this victory,” Diamanti said. “The penalties rewarded our dominance during the match. It’s only fair, we played a great match and battled from the first to the last minute.” But not until penalties by Mario Balotelli, Andrea Pirlo — with an audacious slow chipshot down the middle of the goal — and Antonio Nocerino did the Azzurri find the net. Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney scored England’s penalties. The difference: Ashley Young hit the crossbar with England’s third, and Ashley Cole’s attempt was saved by Gianluigi Buffon.

MLB. Blue Jays’ bats shut down by a familiar foe Mark Buehrle has given the Toronto Blue Jays troubles in his career, and even though he was in a different uniform Sunday the results were similar. The veteran left-hander pitched effectively for seven innings to become the winningest pitcher in interleague play, John Buck hit a three-run homer and the Miami Marlins snapped a six-game losing streak with a 9-0 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday. “The way Buehrle was pitching, we got some hits off him but weren’t really able to bunch too many together,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell said.

For England, it was yet another exit from a major tournament in the quarter-finals after a penalty shootout. England lost to Portugal in the same manner at Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup. England briefly led the shootout after Riccardo Montolivo missed Italy’s second penalty. His shot went wide of Joe Hart’s right post as the England goalkeeper guessed correctly. The momentum shifted after Pirlo’s bold piece of skill levelled it 2-2. “I just saw that the goalkeeper was moving a bit earlier so I decided to play it the other way,” Pirlo said. “It just comes to you at that moment and it went well.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LPGA

The American sank a six-foot putt on the third playoff hole to beat South Korean Hee Kyung Seo by a stroke at the inaugural Manulife Financial LPGA Classic. The 26-year-old Texan actually had a chance to win the tournament on the 18th hole, but pushed a two-foot putt to the left, setting up a four-way playoff with Seo and fellow South Koreans Inbee Park and Chella Choi, both of whom finished at 16-under par.

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


Aries | March 21 - April 20.

You may be full of confidence right now but watch out you don’t take too much for granted.

Taurus | April 21 - May 21.

You will gain a lot more respect over the next few days if you deal with those who disagree with you quickly and with a touch of ruthlessness.

Gemini | May 22 - June 20.

You may be tempted to cut corners and hope no one notices but the planets warn they will — and your reputation will quickly head south.

Cancer | June 21 - July 22.

According to the planets you have allowed your standards to slip in recent months, but Saturn, the great taskmaster of the zodiac, will in some way force you to up your game.


Leo | July 23 - Aug. 22. You are thinking too hard about a problem that is quite simple in nature. Virgo | Aug. 23 - Sept. 22. For some reason you’ve got it into your head that someone you have to deal with on a day-to-day basis is not to be trusted. Libra | Sept. 23 - Oct. 22.

Saturn turns direct in your birth sign today, which means you will no longer be able to kid yourself that everything in your garden is rosy.

Scorpio | Oct. 23 - Nov. 21. Whatever you say there always

seems to be someone who chooses to disagree with you. It’s annoying but you must not let it get to you

Sagittarius | Nov. 22 - Dec. 21. Are you expecting too much of

yourself? Maybe, but it’s better than

expecting too little.

Capricorn | Dec. 22 - Jan 20.

Each and every person is born with a special talent. Do you know what yours is? If not this is the perfect time to find out.

Aquarius | Jan. 21 - Feb 18.

The situation you find yourself in today may be difficult but you won’t make it any easier by allowing your emotions to take control. Use your head and you will get through okay. You may be one of the few who do.

Pisces | Feb. 19 - March 20.

For too long you have believed that your options are limited and that there is only so much you can accomplish. Today’s events will encourage you to believe the opposite: that there is nothing in this world that is beyond you.

You write it!
