Provincial health officials say they are investigating five cases of E. coli infections in people, but they are not linking them to an extensive recall of ground beef from major Canadian grocery stores. Alberta Health Services says four of the infections are in Edmonton and one is in Calgary. CTV is reporting that a four-year-old Calgary girl has been in Alberta Children’s Hospital since Sept. 11. The report says Sarah Demoskoff ’s kidneys have failed and she has had two blood transfusions.

Retailers on the list

• The list includes some of

the largest retailers in the country including Sobeys, Co-op, Metro, Foodland, Giant Tiger and several corporate and franchised Loblaws Companies stores, including Real Canadian Superstore.

• A full list of the stores af-

fected can be found on the food inspection agency’s website at inspection.gc.ca

The girl’s family says doctors told them the case was linked to a beef recall announced on Monday. The family said Sarah ate prepackaged ground beef patties and became very sick soon after. Alberta Health Services

will not confirm if she is one of the cases they are looking into. Alberta investigates between 20 and 25 cases of E. coli each year. The Public Health Agency of Canada says it is not aware of any E. coli cases related to the recall, but it is monitoring the situation. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency first warned on Sunday that ground beef from Edmonton-based XL Foods may contain E. coli. Since then, the list of stores the products were sold in has been expanded several times. “This is ground beef and the ground beef is sold originally in large containers — tubs or larger type of containers — and they go out to retail outlets and various distributors,” said the agency’s Garfield Balsom. the canadian press

Investigation. Police concede they may never know what led to Brendan Cathery’s near-fatal injuries JEREMY NOLAIS

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

It took Brendan Cathery five days to realize he’d nearly died and he’ll likely spend a lifetime wondering what led to the vicious injuries that still plague him two months on. The 25-year-old parted ways with friends around 10:40 p.m. on July 12 after a day of Calgary Stampede festivities. Departing from the Chicago Chophouse, he intended to visit his girlfriend at her home nearby but never made it. Instead, the bright, hardworking engineer was found two hours later lying in a heap at the southeast corner of 9th Avenue and 5th Street SW. Cathery was rushed to hospital with severe head trauma. “The paramedics didn’t even think I was going to make it to the hospital,” Cathery said, speaking for the first time Caught on film

• CCTV security footage was obtained from a nearby construction site. A detective says he can clearly make out the tops of heads in the vicinity where Cathery’s body was found, but their bodies are obscured by fencing and construction equipment.

since the incident exclusively to Metro. With his head and eyes severely swollen, Cathery remained in a coma for days. When he came to, articulating basic thoughts presented a real challenge. “They give you a (cognitive) test right at the start and I think I got five out of 30 questions right,” Cathery said. “I couldn’t draw a cube or remember animal (pictures) or anything like that.” While the full extent of Cathery’s injuries came to light in hospital, police went to work to determine who or what caused him such harm. Det. Russ Harper says three options were laid out from the very beginning of the investigation — and not one has been ruled out. “He was assaulted, he was robbed during which he was assaulted or he suffered some kind of accident,” he said. The witnesses who found Cathery’s body have come forward. Police have also conducted interviews with nearby bar staff and owners. “We have literally exhausted every avenue and we’re not further on any of them,” Harper said, adding it will now take new evidence from a witness to advance the investigation. There is good news, however, as Cathery continues to defy doctors’ expectations with his recovery. He’s already returned to work on a parttime basis and soon hopes to have his driver’s licence reinstated. While attempting to move on, Cathery knows the incident and those fateful few days where he hung onto life by a small thread will stay with him.

Toddler dies at hospital after court denies appeal Allegedly abused by parents. Supreme Court’s rejection of emergency stay cleared way for doctors to take Edmonton girl, 2, off breathing machine A two-year-old girl died Thursday night at the Stollery Children’s Hospital after the Su-

preme Court denied the final appeal from her parents to keep her on life support. The Supreme Court of Canada decision came down Thursday afternoon, clearing the way for doctors to take the Edmonton girl, allegedly abused by her parents, off the breathing machine that was keeping her alive. Lawyers for the child’s parents applied Thursday morning for an emergency stay of an Alberta Court of Appeal

ruling that allows doctors to remove the girl from life support. The lawyers wanted time to file an application for the court to hear an appeal. But a panel of three Supreme Court justices rejected the stay Thursday evening, putting an end to any further legal wrangling. Doctors had testified that the girl, known in documents only as M, would not live long after doctors take her off the machine.

Court had heard the girl, who had been in a coma for three months, had an irreversible brain injury and would never regain consciousness. On Wednesday, Alberta’s top court upheld an earlier judge’s ruling that it was in the girl’s best interest to let her die. The Alberta court further ordered that the parents be allowed one last visit with the girl. They were escorted from the Edmonton Remand Centre

to the Stollery Children’s Hospital on Thursday afternoon and, under guard, met separately with her for 20 minutes each. Paramedics responding to a 911 call found the girl and her twin sister, both malnourished and suffering from injuries, in an Edmonton home May 25. M was in cardiac arrest and slipped into a coma. Her sister is now in foster care, as is an older brother.

Charges

• The parents, who cannot be named, have been charged with aggravated assault, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to provide the necessities of life. Police have said if the girl died, the charges likely would be upgraded.

Alberta-filmed western still packs a punch two decades on CIFF. Crew member reflects on the lasting legacy of the Oscarwinning, Alberta-made duster Unforgiven lisa wilton

lisa.wilton@metronews.ca

Sitting at a table at the Academy Awards Governors Ball, Janice Blackie-Goodine and her husband Dean Goodine were approached by a smiling actor gripping an Oscar. “I just wanted to say thank you for helping me win this,” said the man, plunking the statuette in front the couple. The year was 1993 and the actor was Gene Hackman, who had just walked away with the best-actor award for his role as ruthless town sheriff Little Bill Daggett in Clint Eastwood’s duster Unforgiven. “We were there the first day (Hackman) arrived on set,” recalls Blackie-Goodine, who had also been nominated

Last week, Alberta lost a man that many will never forget. The outpouring of love and appreciation for Peter Lougheed is like nothing I’ve ever seen in this province. In this day and age, I felt compelled to write a meaningful tweet, a sorrowful Facebook status or something compassionate. But the truth is, even though I’ve lived in Alberta for almost seven years, besides being the man that has a park and a hospital named after him, I couldn’t really tell you very much about the former premier, even though I know enough to call him distinguished. But after seeing the flood of emotion, I didn’t want to be just another person who says that Lougheed was undeniably important; I wanted to know exactly why he was so distinguished. Now, I can practically hear your grip tighten on the paper, likely out of fear that I’ll say something disrespectful about the province’s former leader, but my goal in writing this isn’t to offend or be controversial. Merely, it’s to admit that, maybe, I should know more about the person who’ll be remembered during a state funeral Friday at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. In the days since Lougheed’s death, I’ve spent Online For local news, visit metronews.ca.

I read about how Lougheed was a former football player turned lawyer turned politician. I pored over a couple of stories of how, after losing his first attempt at a seat in 1966, he completely rebounded by 1971 when he led the defeat of the Social Credit Party, with the simple campaign slogan “NOW!” That victory would kick off the still uninterrupted Conservative political dynasty we know and sometimes begrudgingly love today. He was a Harvard graduate who went toe-to-toe with Pierre Trudeau over energy-revenue sharing. His government used the Heritage Trust Fund to ensure a prosperous future for Albertans in every industry from oil and gas to the arts. There are also some great photos of Lougheed sitting and sharing a laugh with none other than Princess Diana, Before this week, I knew very little about the man so many will be remembering today, but in the coming weeks, months and years, I look forward to hearing more stories about the former premier, so don’t laugh or scoff at those who don’t know much about Lougheed.

Stephen Avenue launches Walk of Fame Tongue-in-cheek. ‘Grate Portraits’ of local celebrities aim to hinder small litter Celeste de Muelenaere calgary@metronews.ca

Tired of the constant debris of cigarette butts and small litter lining the tree wells on

Stephen Avenue, the Downtown Calgary Association unveiled its innovative solution to the old-age litter problem. On Thursday the association launched the Stephen Avenue Walk of Fame on the iconic street that showcases the faces of influential Calgarians on 55 of the 96 tree grates. “We strive all the time to keep downtown clean, safe and vibrant,” said Shauna Quinn, downtown pedestrian

mall manager. Local artist Mandy Strombo was thus commissioned to bring her creativity to the popular avenue, by transforming dull metal grates into eye-grabbing “bad portraits of great people.” The association hopes that passersby will be less likely to litter the streets if their trash would be desecrating pieces of art. Master of ceremonies and inductee Dave Kelly said the

tongue-in-cheek Calgarian version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame is very much the Canadian way. “It seems pretty Canadian to say, ‘OK, it’s not the Walk of Fame like Hollywood, but its fun and it’s better,’” he said. Other “Grate Portrait” recipients include: Strombo, Newsman Darryl Janz, wrestling pro Bret Hart, poet laureate Kris Demeanour, and Mayor Naheed Nenshi.

Cohesion, some struggles a year after Slave Lake

Calgarians are invited to join civic-minded local indie-rock bands in cleaning up the Elbow River on Sunday. The Rock ‘n’ Roll River Clean-up will take place between the Glenmore Dam and Fort Calgary from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., followed by a concert and barbecue at The Area, 1119–10 Ave. SE. Stations will be located at the Glenmore Dam, Sandy Beach, Stanley Park, Lindsay Park and Fort Calgary. Follow @rivercleanupyyc on Twitter for more info and updates.

A year-long study of people affected by the 2011 Slave Lake wildfire indicates that as the community continues to recover, particular attention must be paid to families and children. Dr. Judith Kulig, a University of Lethbridge health sciences researcher and wildfire recovery expert, was on the ground in Slave Lake a month after the disaster. The study found ample evidence that Slave Lake exhibited a solid level of community cohesion and resilience. The study added that the actual transition back to what some families expressed as “normal” would not be without challenges.

Calgary photographers hunt for daredevil kayakers Falls guys. Unknown adventurers’ derring-do captured for posterity Katie turner

While on a recent trip to B.C., a pair of Calgary photographers didn’t capture a single shot of wildlife they’d been seeking out, but they did manage to shoot something spectacular. Andrea Halwas and her fiancé Chad Larsen, owners of Thirteenth Avenue Gallery, made a pit stop at Wells Gray Provincial Park en route home from Kamloops. The couple stopped at Helmcken Falls — one of the highest waterfalls in Canada — and spotted a group of kayakers braving the smaller waterfall below. “We were standing at the lookout point and realized, those are kayakers down there.

Musician planning Rapture-themed festival End is night. What kind of music plays at the world’s end? Jeremy nolais

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

If you had one last show, what would you play? That’s the question local musician Kenna Burima has been posing to fellow performers as she prepares a festival based on a theme like no other: The Rapture.

“That concept of playing your last show, to me, is just such a unique opportunity for any kind of artist.... The sky’s the limit is really sort of how I have been presenting it,” she said. The event, officially titled the End of the World Music Festival, is planned for Dec. 21, the very day that some believe the Mayan calendar signals the demise of us all. Burima has received a grant through the Calgary 2012 initiative and found a venue, the Royal Canadian Legion No. 1. She is working to finalize a lineup chock full of local talent.

Lost-and-found. Police find Calgary widower’s stolen wedding ring A stolen wedding ring belonging to a Calgary widower has been recovered, according to police. In late August, Calgarian Aaron Klett had his home in the community of Haysboro broken into. His laptop containing family photos, as well as a roughly 100-year-old ring that his now-deceased wife had given him on their wedding day, were stolen. The laptop was recovered at the home of an alleged suspect, but Klett and investigators appealed to the public in hopes that the ring would be recovered. According to the police, investigators located the ring last

week at a gold purchasing stall in a shopping centre in northeast Calgary. “My family and I are extremely happy to have our stolen items returned, and we are very thankful to the Calgary Police Service,” said Klett in a statement. “Without their dedication to this case, we would just be another statistic.” Police also recovered several other stolen jewelry items from other break-and-enter victims in Shawnee Slopes and Varsity. Four 16- to 17-year-old males have been arrested, and each are facing three to five charges of house break-andenter. metro

Submissions are also being accepted from local artists and Burima hopes those attending will don the attire of

a renowned end-of-the-world prognosticator. “It’s being done really tongue-in-cheeky.... I don’t necessarily subscribe to thinking the world’s going to end on Dec. 21 and all of the sudden we’re going to cease to exist,” Burima said. “To me, what it means is a really unique opportunity to look back and see what you do and use the end of the world as a new starting point.” For more information, visit endoftheworldyyc.com.

Bike Calgary helps launch Ride the City Commuting on bike may be a little easier in Calgary thanks to a new open-data application that not only plans routes, it allows cyclists to alter the map. Bike Calgary approached the two New York City developers behind Ride the City — a website and mobile application that allows commuters to plot their course from one point to another. The co-founder of Ride

the City, Jordan Anderson, said they first launched the site in 2008, and have now expanded into roughly 40 cities including Calgary. “We got this idea to do something like a MapQuest or Google Maps for bicycling,” said Anderson. He said one of the benefits of Ride the City is it utilizes OpenStreetMap data, which allows anyone to alter the information on the map. “It allows us to be very responsive to changes.” Ridethecity.com/Calgary is up and running, as is the mobile application for both Android and iPhone.

Visit by UN officials stirs large protest led by Buddhist monks Sri Lanka. Flocks of protesters complain country is being unfairly criticized for poor human-rights record Hundreds of Sri Lankans protested Thursday against a visit by UN officials to discuss

human-rights issues during the country’s civil war. Monks led about 300 protesters from the Buddhist nationalist National Heritage Party during the demonstration opposite a local UN office. They complained Sri Lanka is being unfairly criticized for a poor human-rights record as the war was ending in 2009. They alleged the visit was

Fashion shoot. Photo exhibit with nuns, graves causes protest by Poland Poland protested a Ukrainian photo exhibition Thursday, featuring models dressed as Catholic nuns posing next to the graves of Polish soldiers — an incident that threatened to upset close ties between the two neighbours as Kyiv relies on Warsaw’s help in its push to integrate closer with the European Union. The protest came during a visit by Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, who is pressing Ukraine to commit to European democratic and human-rights standards if it wants to join the European club. On Friday, Komorowski and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych are to unveil a memorial outside Kyiv to thousands of Polish officers killed by Josef Stalin’s secret police at the start of the Second World War. The photographs, taken by a Ukrainian fashion magazine and displayed at a museum last week, showed the women striking proPhilippines

1,000-year-old village unearthed Archaeologists have unearthed remnants of what they believe is a 1,000-year-old village on a jungle-covered mountaintop in the Philippines with limestone coffins of a type never before found in this Southeast Asian nation, officials said Thursday. National Museum official Eusebio Dizon said the village on Mount Kamhantik, near Mulanay town in Quezon province, could be at least 1,000 years old based on U.S. carbon-dating tests done on a human tooth found in one of 15 limestone graves he and other archaeologists have dug out since last year. the associated press

The graves are of Polish soldiers who died when Poles and Ukrainians battled for control over Lviv in the wake of the First World War. Poland’s Foreign Ministry said Thursday that its diplomats in Lviv protested “the impropriety of the exhibition, which could hurt feelings and provoke controversy” and were able to get the exhibit closed. “It was horrible, it insults the memory of soldiers, of the state, of everyone,” said Emil Legovich, a leader of the Polish community in Lviv. He speculated that the exhibit was organized by certain “political forces” in order to sabotage Polish-Ukrainian relations ahead of Ukraine’s hotly contested parliamentary election next month.

a step toward subjecting Sri Lanka to an international war-crimes investigation. Three representatives from the UN human-rights commission have met Sri Lankan officials and ethnic Tamil politicians and seen areas ravaged by war on their visit. A UN report found evidence the government and Tamil Tiger rebels committed

rights violations during the war. It said tens of thousands of civilians may have been killed in the final stages of the fighting, though there are no clear estimates available. The UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution earlier this year urging Sri Lanka to investigate alleged war crimes committed by both sides. the associated press

Birth control. Implants, IUDs urged for teen girls Teenage girls may prefer the pill, the patch or even wishful thinking, but their doctors should be recommending IUDs or hormonal implants — longlasting and more effective birth control that you don’t have to remember to use every time, the leading U.S. gynecologists’ group said Thursday. The IUD and implants are safe and nearly 100 per cent effective at preventing pregnancy, and should be “first-line recommendations,” the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said in updating its guidance for teens. Both types of contraception are more invasive than the pill, requiring a doctor to put them in place. That, and cost, are probably why the pill is still the most popular form of contraQuebec

PQ makes good on vow to scrap tuition-fee increase Quebec. Decision comes after ‘Maple Spring’ that saw student protests erupt across province The tuition increase that triggered such social strife in Quebec was cancelled Thursday during an action-packed first full day in office for the Parti Québécois government. The new government repealed the fee hike, by decree, in its first cabinet meeting less than 24 hours after coming to power. Student leaders cheered the news. Premier Pauline Marois has Quoted

acted on a promise that she had made during the election campaign. She announced the decision at a news conference after the cabinet meeting. Marois said tuition will go back to $2,168 — the lowest in Canada. With the planned increases, it would have been $600 higher this year and would have kept growing each

year. Marois said she will not decrease funding for universities and will make good on a promise to hold a summit on how to fund universities within her first 100 days as premier. The government policy entering that meeting will be to suggest indexing future fee increases to the rate of inflation.

The future. It’s why teachers teach.

That would raise tuition by a rate of around one to three per cent most years — compared with the 84 per cent increase over seven years planned by the previous Charest government. But Marois’ inflation-index policy is not set in stone. Some students are pushing for zero tuition, as exists in some other countries. the canadian press

U.S.-Muslim relations

Protests suggest Muslims as angry at U.S. as 4 years ago

Obama, Clinton speak out on anti-Islam film debacle Pakistan. Islamabad’s American Embassy takes steps to ease controversy over U.S.-produced movie with TV ad The American Embassy in Islamabad, in a bid to tamp down public rage over the anti-Islam film produced in the U.S., is spending $70,000 US to air an ad on Pakistani television that features President Barack Obama and Secretary of

State Hillary Rodham Clinton denouncing the video. The State Department said Thursday the embassy had compiled brief clips of Obama and Clinton rejecting the contents of the movie and extolling American tolerance for all religions into a 30-second public-service announcement that is running on seven Pakistani networks. Obama and Clinton’s comments, which are from previous public events in Washington, are in English but subtitled in Urdu, the main Pak-

istani language. Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the aim was to get the messages to the widest possible audience in Pakistan, where tens of thousands of protestors angry about the film tried to reach the U.S. Embassy before being turned back by Pakistani police. She said embassy staffers had decided the ads were the best way to spread the word. The seven networks have a potential audience of 90 million people, she added. the associated press

Images of angry mobs in Arab cities burning American flags and attacking U.S. diplomatic posts suggest the Muslim world is no less enraged at America than when President George W. Bush had to duck shoes hurled at him in Baghdad. But more than three years after President Barack Obama declared in Cairo that he would seek “a new beginning” in U.S.-Muslim relations, a closer look reveals strides as well as setbacks. One U.S.-led war is over and another is receding, although there are questions about whether America has made lasting gains in Afghanistan. The Arab Spring

Suspect acquitted of setting U.S. Embassy ablaze said there was no evidence that Milan Zivanovic, 24, took part in the burning of the embassy when Serb rioters stormed it on Feb. 21, 2008, in anger over Washington’s support for the statehood of Kosovo, a predominantly ethnic Albanian province. the associated press

American war resister turns herself over to U.S. authorities Seeking refuge. Soldier lived in Toronto after coming to Canada in 2007 to avoid service An American soldier who sought refuge in Canada after she became disillusioned with the Iraq war has turned herself over to the United States. The War Resisters Support Campaign says Kimberly Rivera was immediately arrested, detained and transferred to U.S. military custody after presenting herself at the border. The group says Rivera is now waiting to be transferred to a different military facility where she faces punishment for being absent from her unit.

It also says Rivera’s husband and her four children crossed the border separately so the kids wouldn’t have to see their mother being detained. The secretary to Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has confirmed the deportation and says the Harper government doesn’t believe Rivera will be persecuted in the U.S. Rivera, who lived in Toronto with her family, came to Canada in 2007 to avoid further U.S. military service. Ken Marciniec of the War Resisters Support Campaign says two other Iraq war resisters who were deported in the past faced year-long jail sentences for desertion. Rivera told reporters last month that her biggest fear about being deported was be-

Pussy Riot. Band member’s husband seeking U.S. human-rights sanctions The husband of one of the imprisoned members of the Russian punk-rock band Pussy Riot wants U.S. sanctions against Russian officials involved in prosecuting the musicians. Petya Verzilov was meeting on Thursday with U.S. lawmakers and aides involved in drafting legislation that would target Russian officials linked to human-rights abuses. Verzilov is married to band

member Nadia Tolokonnikova. The punk band members were sentenced in August to two years in prison for performing an irreverent song mocking Russian President Vladimir Putin inside Moscow’s main cathedral. Verzilov hopes that the legislation could be used to pressure Russian officials to release Tolokonnikova and others.

Petition

Roughly 19,000 people signed an online petition protesting her deportation order, and rallies were held in Canadian cities Wednesday, calling on the government to let Rivera stay in the country.

That assessment ruled she would not be in danger of punishment, torture or loss of life if deported. the canadian press

Pastor seeks to preach after dark A street preacher sued Thursday to block a New Orleans ordinance that restricts religious or political speech on Bourbon Street after dark.

PQ bothered by accused shooter’s media access The Quebec government is examining how accused killer Richard Henry Bain was able to speak to the media from a detention centre. The Parti Québécois’ new public security minister says he’s bothered that the man accused of shooting two people at a PQ victory rally on election night had access to a radio audience. Bain called a Montreal station on Wednesday and small snippets of a 38-minute inter-

view were aired on English- and French-language stations of the Astral Radio network. The accused shooter reportedly told the network he’d had a vision from God that Montreal should become its own province and separate from Quebec. He did not want to talk about events on election night — just about his political views. On his way into Thursday’s cabinet meeting, Public Security Minister Stephane Bergeron said he will investigate whether

Probation. Senator’s wife pleads guilty to causing disturbance on plane Morgan Modjeski

Metro in Saskatoon

Maygan Sensenberger, 23, and Manitoba Senator Rod Zimmer, 69, are entering a new chapter in their relationship — probation. Sensenberger appeared in a Saskatoon courthouse on Thursday morning where she pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance and was given a 12-month suspended sentence and probation. A second charge of uttering threats was withdrawn. Sensenberger became the centre of attention across the country after being arrested on a flight from Ottawa to Saskatoon in late August, just days before the couple’s first wedding anniversary. Prosecution told the court that witnesses aboard the aircraft heard Sensenberger allegedly threatening to slit her husband’s throat. Her lawyer, Leslie Sullivan, said her client was happy the ordeal was settled.

“My client is extremely relieved this matter is over,” said Sullivan. “She has been anxious to get this concluded and she just wants to return to her home and get back on with her life.” When asked if she was pleased with the sentencing, Sullivan explained: “I’m very pleased the charge was withdrawn — as it should have been.... We wanted to deal with it expeditiously and that’s what we did.” The court was told that Sensenberger had been drinking at the time of the argument and provincial Judge Marilyn Gray said she felt if alcohol hadn’t been involved, it would have been a different situation. She noted that a person’s good judgment sometimes goes “out the window” when drinking. Although there was no mandatory treatment as part of the sentence, Sensenberger will have to undergo any addictions assessment, treatment or counselling that is recommended by her probation officer.

YouTube video prompts search for decades-old remains

Maygan Sensenberger and her husband, Rod Zimmer, are seen together outside Saskatoon’s provincial courthouse on Thursday. After she was charged, a court ordered the two to only contact each other through electronic means. Now that Sensenberger has been sentenced, all conditions that were part of her bail no longer apply. Morgan Modjeski/metro in saskatoon

The 60-year-old wreckage of a Second World War-era bomber in the mountains above Metro Vancouver has prompted a search by RCMP for human remains. Mounties in Pitt Meadows, B.C., received a call about a video posted on YouTube by a group of hikers who claimed there were remains at the site of the 1953 crash. On Sept. 14 officers, along with a forensic identification specialist and a dog unit, flew into the area and hiked to the remote location to search. Const. Alanna Dunlop says no human remains were found. The Mitchell B-25 went down near Pitt Lake in January 1953 during a training flight. The site was so remote and the route so treacherous that Air Force crews had to wait until the following September to recover the bodies. the canadian press

Catholic leader calls for stop to Israel attacks Holy Land. Vandalism of Christian holy sites prompts Rev. Pizzaballa to voice concerns over JewishChristian relations After a series of attacks by vandals on Christian holy sites in Israel, normally tight-lipped Roman Catholic officials are beginning to speak out, publicly appealing to authorities to take a stronger stand against the violence. The Rev. Pierbattista Pizzaballa, one of the church’s top officials in the Holy Land, said he is worried about relations between Jews and Christians in the region. He believes the blame can go all around. “I think the main atmosphere is ignorance,” Pizzaballa told The Associated Press.

Because the local Christian population is tiny, “we do not exist for the majority.... They have other priorities,” he said. “On the other side, we as a minority maybe didn’t invest enough energy and initiatives” to reach out to Israeli Jews. That may be changing following this month’s attack on a

well-known Trappist Monastery in Latrun, outside Jerusalem. Vandals burned a door and spray-painted anti-Christian graffiti on the century-old building with the words “Jesus is a monkey.” Suspicion has fallen on extremist Jewish West Bank settlers or their supporters, who are believed to be behind a series of attacks in recent years on mosques, Christian sites and even Israeli army property to protest moves against settlements. In response, the church’s top officials issued a rare “declaration” calling on Israeli leaders to take action. It said authorities should “put an end to this senseless violence and to ensure a ‘teaching of respect’ in schools for all those who call this land home.” Israeli leaders swiftly condemned the attack, and police vowed to bring the vandals to justice. Nearly two weeks later, there have been no arrests. the associated press

Angry opposition to Indian economic plan

Helping hand. Harper introduces EI changes to help out parents The Harper government is spelling out proposed changes to the employment insurance system to help parents of sick children. Human Resources Minister Diane Finley has tabled legislation in the Commons that would provide EI benefits to such parents. The Helping Families in Need Act, once law, will also change the Canada Labour Code to protect the jobs of parents who take a leave of absence to care for a critically ill child. Also, new provisions under the Employment Insurance Act would make parents eligible for sickness benefits should they fall ill

Marcus Garvey.

Marcus Garvey, who inspired millions of followers worldwide with messages of black pride and self-reliance, is being resurrected in a new mandatory civics program in schools across the predominantly black country. Students are supposed to learn values such as selfesteem, respect for others and personal responsibility by studying Garvey. the associated press

National strike. Protests against a government decision to cut fuel subsidies and open retail markets to foreigners Angry opposition supporters disrupted trains in India on Thursday but had only limited success in enforcing a national strike to protest a government decision to cut fuel subsidies and open the country’s huge retail market to foreign companies. Political backlash against the economic reform package presented by the Cabinet last week has left Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s coalition scrambling to shore up its support and prevent early elections. Some government allies have joined opposition parties in throwing their support behind the protests, which closed many schools and kept commercial trucks off the roads. However, many shops and businesses remained open, and the impact of the protest was barely felt in the main cities of Mumbai and New Delhi. In a signal the government was on shaky ground, however, many of the protests in Uttar Pradesh state were led by the Samajwadi Party, which has been supporting the government from outside the fragile ruling coalition. In Uttar Pradesh and Bihar state, protesters blocked rail-

road tracks. Some burned an effigy of Singh on the tracks, while others carried signs reading: “Go Back Wal-Mart,” a reference to the U.S. retail giant that is expected to enter the Indian market under the new regulations. Singh stunned the country with last week’s raft of reforms. “We have tried to assure everybody that there was no other way except to take that decision to keep the economy on track,” said Information Minister Ambika Soni.

Bitter pill, angry populace

“India is heading toward economic slavery,” Rajnath Singh, a leader of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party, said during a protest Thursday. He warned that the entry of Walmart would flood India with Chinese-made goods, hurting local farmers, manufacturers and retailers. • Opponents said the fuel hike would spark higher inflation and hurt the

Making scents of chaos Afghan agriculture. You’ve heard about the Jasmine Revolution — here’s one that started with orange blossoms Kieron Monks

Metro World News

Can perfume rebuild a shattered country? Barbara Stegemann says yes. The Canadian entrepreneur has given international development a chic twist, buying fair-trade herbs from crisis-hit nations to create her perfume line, The 7 Virtues. The mission began in Afghanistan. After a soldier friend was wounded, Stegemann wanted to prove that economic empowerment could undermine the country’s heroin economy and the Taliban that controls it. The path led to Jalalabad, a city famous for its orange blossoms, and a struggling supplier. “He was about to give up,” Stegemann recalls. “It was a financial risk but I wanted to show that another way is possible.” She invested $2,000 and in 2010 launched her Afghanistan Orange Blossom fragrance. The first batch sold out and she soon secured financing through the hit TV show Dragons’ Den. Petal power

“We don’t often have a way to touch peace, yet we own voting and buying power.” Barbara Stegemann, founder of The 7 Virtues Beauty Inc., on female empowerment through local development

Q&A

‘The potential is huge’ What is the tradition of Afghan perfume? The first rose was distilled here and the oil has been used in Islamic medicine for centuries. The Jalalabad region was known for its gardens full of flowers and native plants, and the culture of making compounds from them.

Initiatives such as Stegemann’s can have a profound impact on Afghan women and children, development workers say. contributed/yousaf sali

The investment allowed her supplier to develop his business and take on more staff. In turn, this brought new investment in traditional Afghan products. “This type of foreign involvement has made a positive change for the crafts,” said Waheed Khalili, director of the Turquoise Mountain Institute for Afghan Arts and Architecture. In three years, employment has grown 70 per cent in the industry, he says. Development NGOs believe such projects can have a lasting impact. “Giving ordinary Afghans the chance to find stable, legal work allows them to plan for the future, to improve their lives and that of their children,” said Fernando Soares, deputy executive director of Mercy Corps. “This helps lay the foundations for a peaceful and productive Afghanistan.” The 7 Virtues has also made female empowerment an issue. Stegemann’s suppliers are leading employers of women, and the profits have helped to expand schools for girls. The scents are becoming more ambitious. The latest blends Israeli and Iranian ingredients for an anti-war protest. Stegemann is also lobbying Israeli politicians to help her establish a Palestinian distillery. But the causes are too important for politicians alone. “Citizens have to take action,” she says. “If you stay the course, you will see results.”

Looking into the future: Jalalabad-based distiller Abdullah Arsala says he believes perfume-making will expand as a positive business in war-torn Afghanistan. contributed/abdullah Arsala

What is the future for your business? Industrialized distillation is still new here and we have problems with energy and electricity. But the potential is huge and now we know the market will expand and employ more people.

Conflict. Perfume of peace Stegemann is not the first to create a scent with a message. French perfume maker Francois Coty used his cosmetics empire to launch a fascist party before the Second World War, and became a hugely influential political figure. More recently, IsraeliGerman photographer Daniel Josefsohn created the “MoslBuddJewChristHinDao”

fragrance in an effort to promote religious tolerance, later shortened to the easier “Unifaith.” With the U.S. election campaign in full swing, the perfumers at Bliss have made it an “eau-lection” with scents for both candidates. Supporters can show their colours by choosing between “Mint Romney” and Orange “O’bama.” kieron monks/metro world news

How difficult is it for farmers to switch to perfume from poppy? It’s not easy to convince them because the poppy is quick and has more value. But the rose flowers here are the n e x t b e s t and the governm e n t h a s given subsidies for the first three years for farmers who switch, because that is how long it takes for them to bloom. If there is a group of farmers who switch together, the Taliban cannot fight them.

Mafia rooted in Ontario: Officer Public inquiry. More witnesses on Monday A veteran Ontario detective has testified in a public inquiry that the Italian Mafia’s reach in that province extends to all kinds of legitimate businesses that mask criminal proceeds. Mike Amato, a York Regional police detective, testified Thursday before the Quebec inquiry looking into allegations of corruption in the province’s construction industry. Called to provide a portrait of the reach and scope of the Italian Mafia in Ontario, Amato described a group that has managed to root itself deeply into everyday society. The officer says the modernday Mafioso is dressed in business suits, works nine-to-five hours and holds jobs ranging from banker to accountant to bus driver. “They think it’s a bunch of old guys smoking cigars, playing cards in a coffee shop, and that’s not the modern-day Mafia,” Amato told the Charbonneau Commission. Amato said Mafia-controlled legitimate businesses include everything from garden cen-

Scientists say they’ve found the gene that sets the common tabby-cat pattern — stripes or blotches. Cats with narrow stripes, or the “mackerel” pattern, have a working copy of the gene. But if a mutation turns the gene off, the cat ends up with the blotchy “classic” pattern. the associated press

Hazing. University baseball team suspended The Wilfrid Laurier baseball team will make a final pitch Sunday to save its season after being suspended by the school following a hazing incident. The varsity men’s squad was suspended for a minimum four games Thursday after the entire team participated in the incident, which violated the school’s student-athlete code of conduct. “This isn’t a minor thing like having the rookie carry bags to the bus-type thing,” said Peter Baxter, the school’s athletic director. “Alcohol was involved and there were other issues of de-humanizing, degrading behaviour. “We have a zero-tolerance policy that is supported by our board of governors and president.” Baxter wouldn’t give any specifics on the incident but said no one was injured. Rather than impose a season-long suspension immediately, the school wants to give players the chance to make a case for allowing them to resume playing. “Sport can be a very powerful platform to educate for the positive, not just the negative and this is what we’re asking our athletes to do for themselves,” Baxter said. “What I’m

saying to them is this is your opportunity to step forward and make effective change longterm because I know me just whacking them on suspension isn’t going to change the culture; it will make them more resentful. “They all think it (hazing) is going to be a bonding experience but there are other ways you can do that nowadays in a positive way.” Officials will decide Sunday whether to allow the team to resume playing or extend the suspension through to the end of the season.

U.K. probe may include Kremlin Alexander Litvinenko. Poisoned Russian agent was critical of Putin A long-awaited inquest into the poisoning death of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko should consider whether Russian authorities were involved, the senior British judge who will oversee it said Thursday. But the U.K. government will not let lawyers for the victim’s family and the suspects see a report on alleged links between Litvinenko and British intelligence. Litvinenko’s family believes the Kremlin was behind his death from radioactive poisoning in London in 2006. The former security service officer, a critic of the Kremlin, died after drinking tea laced with the rare radioactive isotope polonium-210 at a London hotel. On his deathbed, he accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of responsibility. Ben Emmerson, a lawyer for

Litvinenko’s widow, told a court hearing that it was vital that the inquest investigate “the criminal role of the Russian state.” He said that if official Russian involvement was proved, it would constitute “an act of state-sponsored nuclear terrorism on the streets of London.” Judge Robert Owen, who will lead the inquest, said its scope would be decided at a later hearing, but indicated he was inclined to agree it should

look at Russia’s alleged role. Owen said it was “to be regretted” that no inquest has been held in the nearly six years since Litvinenko died. He said he would open his inquest as early in 2013 as possible. The killing cast a pall over U.K.-Russian relations that still persists. British prosecutors have accused two Russians of killing Litvinenko, but Russia refuses to hand them over.

CSIS wary of China takeovers The same day shareholders of a Calgary-based energy company agreed to a takeover bid by a state firm from China, Canada’s spy agency is warning such purchases can pose a threat to national security. In its latest report, CSIS says the majority of foreign investment in Canada is carried out in a transparent manner, but that certain state-owned enterprises and firms with close ties to their home governments have pursued opaque agendas or received clandestine intelligence support for their pursuits.

16 Amish convicted Hate crimes. Dispute pitted children against parents, and attacks terrorized the normally peaceful settlement Sixteen Amish men and women were convicted Thursday of hate crimes including forcibly cutting off fellow sect members’ beards and hair in a religious dispute that offered a rare and sometimes lurid glimpse into the closed and usually self-regulating community of believers. A federal jury found Samuel Mullet Sr. guilty of orchestrating the cutting of Amish men’s beards and women’s hair last fall. His followers were found guilty of carrying out the attacks. Prosecutors and witnesses described how sons pulled their father out of

bed and chopped off his beard in the moonlight and how women surrounded their mother-in-law and cut off 2/3 metres of hair, taking it to the scalp. All the defendants are members of Mullet’s settlement near the West Virginia panhandle. Prosecutors say the defendants targeted hair because it carries spiritual significance. One bishop told jurors his chest-length beard was chopped to 3.8 centimetres

of his chin. In another attack, a woman testified that her own sons and a daughter cut her hair and her husband’s beard. Witnesses testified that Mullet had complete control over the settlement that he founded two decades ago and described how his religious teachings and methods of punishments deviated from Amish traditions. Mullet’s attorney, Ed Bryan, maintained that the government had not shown that Mullet was at the centre of the attacks. The defendants who cut the hair and beards acted on their own and were inspired by one another, Bryan said. All the victims, prosecutors said, were people who had a dispute with Mullet over his religious practices and his authoritarian rule. the associated press

British police say masked thieves wielding an axe and crowbars stole luxury watches worth 500,000 pounds ($810,000 US) from a high-end department store in Manchester as stunned shoppers looked on.

31.5% of kids in Canada overweight or obese Report. Level at an all-time high: Experts

Wind developer notes disparity A wind power developer says the federal government is treating his industry differently than it treats other energy sources such as the oilsands. Last summer, Health Minister Leona Aglukaak announced a $1.8-million study on the health effects of wind turbines. When John Andrews of wind developer IPC Energy

in Ontario asked if the department was doing a similar study involving the oilsands, he was told the oilsands come under provincial jurisdiction. Andrews points out wind power is also regulated entirely by the provinces. The energy source is highly controversial in Ontario. Provincial Conservatives have called strongly for a moratorium on any further development. The Canadian Press

CANFORGEN

Military turns off information tap Members of the Canadian military have been told to tighten the screws and withhold information, even though it may not be sensitive or a threat to national security. The unusual directive, known as a CANFORGEN, was written last year by the country’s deputy top commander in response to a media story examining

National Defence finances. The 2011 Ottawa Citizen newspaper story looked at lapsed funding — cash the department was unable to spend on capital projects — and came at the height of the last federal election campaign. It was deemed to have contained “information that was not meant for wider or public consumption,” but the data had not been designated either secret or protected. the canadian press

Boys

The study found boys are struggling more than girls to control their weight. • Obesity. According to the WHO definition, 15.1 per cent of boys are obese compared to eight per cent of girls. • Kids. The gender gap is particularly noticeable in the five-to-11 age group, with three time more boys considered obese (19.5 per cent) than girls (6.3 per cent). • Teens. The difference was less pronounced among those aged 12 to 17, with 10.7 per cent of boys and 9.6 per cent of girls considered obese.

overweight or obese has not changed much in the last few years — although experts say the level is at all-time high, and unacceptably so. The Canadian Press

Almost a third of Canadian children are either overweight or obese, says a report from Statistics Canada that bases its figures on the World Health Organization method of determining ideal weights for youth around the globe. Using data from the 2009-11 Canadian Health Measures Survey, the federal agency says 31.5 per cent of children aged five to 17 — or an estimated 1.6 million individuals — are overweight or obese. The proportion was slightly higher among younger youth. Almost 33 per cent of five- to 11-year-olds were overweight or obese, compared to 30 per cent of those 12 to 17. The percentage of kids who were overweight — but not obese — was similar across age groups. The proportion of Canadian kids and teens who are

Retail. Reitmans says it can withstand Target’s arrival north of border Women’s clothing retailer Reitmans says it’s not worried about Target coming to Canada. Chief executive Jeremy Reitman says they’ve withstood increased competition from U.S. companies before, pointing to Walmart and the Gap. Reitman says industry observers have previously predicted increased competition would cause the demise of Canada’s largest publicly traded apparel company. But he says Reitmans has done well as the popular U.S. chains have driven traffic to malls and big-box outlets where its retail network operates. Reitman told a CIBC investor conference in Montreal that “we thank God for Walmart.” He adds many of its various retail store brands are located in the same shopping areas. Target will replace Zellers stores, which Reitmans said doesn’t generate much traffic. Like many apparel companies, Reitmans has faced the challenges of a tough economic environment and higher fuel and food prices that reduce discretionary spending

on non-essential items. Its revenues and profits fell in the second quarter and it says that the third quarter will be affected by problems with a new warehouse management system at its distribution centre that caused two weeks of delays in product shipments to stores. The computer crashes were harmful but the new system will allow Reitmans to dramatically cut the time to process merchandise and allow it to do so with far fewer employees. In addition to adding and refurbishing stores, Reitmans has launched an e-commerce business that allows customers to shop online and have products delivered to their homes or the nearest retail store.

He pointed in particular to the upswing in mobility and to young men moving out of their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes, both signs that more young adults were testing out job prospects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could be the modest number of new jobs or simply the belief that the worst is over,â&#x20AC;? Cherlin said.

The new 2011 census figures released Thursday show progress in an economic recovery that technically began in mid-2009.

Biofuel. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest facility planned for B.C. The largest organics biofuel facility in Canada will be built in Surrey, B.C., as a way to divert waste from landfill and turn it into natural gas. Mayor Dianne Watts says about a quarter of the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project costs will come from the federal government and that a private partner will be chosen to design, build and operate it by 2015.

The mayor says Surrey collects waste from about 100,000 homes and that about 65 per cent of its residential garbage includes organics from commercial kitchen and yard waste. City spokeswoman Tara Foslien says that eventually, Surrey aims to be home to North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only fully integrated organics waste management system. The Canadian Press

It’s time again for the Metro List, your one-stop shop for conPaul Sullivan versational tidbits that make metronews.ca you the coolest cat around the cooler. Hockey Night in Canada — NOT. The billionaire owners have locked out the millionaire players, cancelled the pre-season and could cancel the entire season. The rest of us may have to turn to football or soccer … or get a life. The topless Duchess. Variation on that Hans Christian Andersen tale The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only in this remake the paparazzi invade the Duchess of Cambridge’s privacy and her husband the Duke is not even a little amused. Cross-border crossover. Top U.S. retailer Nordstrom brings its shopping experience to Canada, announcing stores in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal. Hopefully, the Competition Bureau won’t make the chain lower the quality of its service and jack up the prices so Canadian retailers can compete. As of Friday, your device is obsolete. Apple starts selling the iPhone 5 in Canada on Friday. For $699 you get a phone that’s half an inch longer. Doesn’t seem like much, but don’t tell the two million people who pre-ordered it in the U.S. I guess size still matters. Speaking of size. As of this week, the mayor of N.Y.C. bans any big sugary drink over 16 ounces. Big Gulp banned in the Big Apple, and it’s not even Boston. Start spreadin’ the news. Then there’s Tupelo Honey. Turns out Mississippi is the fattest place in North America, with 34.9 per cent of its citizens considered obese. That’s nuthin’. By 2030, after another 18 years of BBQ, 66.7 per cent of adults in the Hospitality State will be obese. I wouldn’t get too smug; an estimated 1.6 million Canadian kids are overweight, and the Big Gulp is still freely available on any street corner. This kid’s not all right. Consider the case of Maygan Sensenberger, the wife of Sen. Rod Zimmer. She’s 23, barely an adult; he’s 69, barely sentient. At least, you have to wonder why else he’d marry someone 46 years his junior. Whatever, the honeymoon’s over: Thursday, she pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance last month on a Saskatoon-bound flight, while a charge of threatening her husband was withdrawn. Maybe she wanted to go to Miami. Voyager has left the building. In fact, Voyager 1, which was launched from Cape Canaveral 35 years ago, has left the whole damn solar system, the first human-made device to go into deep space, where no one has gone before. Literally. If aliens ever do intercept the Voyager and listen to the music included on board, they’ll have to try to figure out a species that listens to Mozart, Stravinsky … and Blind Willie Johnson. the list

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in End of Watch. HANDOUT Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Make sure you pack Gravol for this ‘watch’ Hand-held action. End of Watch pays homage to gritty crime dramas, but the shaky camera work gives it an artificial feel Richard: Mark, End of Watch is all build up. The movie spends an hour-and-a-half introducing its characters, giving us a slice of LAPD life before topping it off with an exciting conclusion. I could have used less Barf-OMatic hand-held camera work — sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s happening — but overall I thought this movie worked because of the naturalistic performances and the climax. You? Mark: And what performances! Both Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are first-rate, their naturalistic style perfectly

matching the you-are-there hand-held camera work. But I also thought the dialogue was far superior to most police thrillers. There’s no plot, really — it’s a series of episodes in the lives of two LAPD officers, which at times seemed reminiscent of the old TV series Adam 12. But there are things that are shown in this movie that would never have happened in the more benign TV show. RC: It’s true. It took me a while to warm to the episodic nature of the “story.” I found the first half-hour stagey. The havingthe-character-film-part-of-themovie thing has been done to death, and I thought added a level of artificiality that didn’t need to be there. Take that out and no one would miss it. But once I allowed myself to be drawn into the performances and the chemistry of the leads, I was sucked in. I thought the female characters were given

more to do than usual in a cop drama, but just barely. Anna Kendrick is so talented, I would have liked to seen her given more to do. MB: Kendrick barely registered for me; the woman who did was the Hispanic gang leader’s significant other. Scary! As far as the ending goes, I thought it was a well-handled climax, but I can’t say I didn’t see it coming. It’s the coda after the climax I thought was unnecessary. It tried to add poignancy to a movie that was thankfully unsentimental throughout. RC: I agree. It’s hard to discuss the end without being spoilerific, but let’s say the movie goes from jovial to gritty and then back to jovial again. I didn’t love it, but Hollywood seems to be allergic to tragic endings. MB: Felt like a studio decision

Synopsis

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña play officers Taylor and Zavala, patrol cops in Los Angeles’s tough South Central neighbourhood. A routine traffic stop turns into something bigger when they confiscate money and guns from a cartel member. “Be careful,” they’re warned by a senior officer, “You just tugged on the tail of a snake that’s going to turn around and bite you.” •

Richard: •••••

Mark: •••••

and a focus group to me, Richard. But I enjoyed the film anyway. Just remember that much of it is shot shaky style, so sit at the back of the theatre and bring your Gravol!

•••••

••• • •

The hard-edged British future-shock comic book (previously adapted with Sly Stallone as a camp-fest in 1995) becomes a hard-core feature courtesy of writer Alex Garland (28 Days Later) and director Pete Travis. Dredd 3D is not for the faint of heart, filled as it is with endless skinning, stabbing, shooting and head crushing all rendered in some beautifully designed 3D sequences. Spare on dialogue, long on style, pulsing music and violence, Dredd 3D is a gift to serious sci-fi action movie fans.

Trouble with the Curve is no Moneyball. If anything, it’s the antithesis to the acclaimed biopic about using science to shape ball teams. In this, Clint Eastwood is an expired scout that, despite failing eyes and curmudgeonly demeanor, picks players the old-fashioned way — on personality. Too bad there wasn’t more personality in the film itself as text-book characters and routine plotting leaves Curve with a sub-par batting average.

Director. Andrew Bush

Slap-sticked together by Halifax comedy troupe Picnicface, Roller Town is the little indie comedy that could. Not only was it made on a skate-string budget, but the gang decided to spoof the arcane fad of ’70s roller-rink films (remember Xanadu?). With plenty of silly gags whirling around a bare plot about a skate king who seeks justice against mobsters trying to kill disco, Roller Town stands out — even if it does lose its wheels by the end. steve gow

House at the End of the Street is notable as actress Jennifer Lawrence’s first big screen appearance since her turn in The Hunger Games. Marketed as a supernatural spook show for kids, the film is actually a rock solid, dark and suspenseful thriller armed with further evidence of just how good an actress Lawrence is becoming. Although saddled with a youth friendly PG-13 rating and light on anything visceral, House is actually ample frightening and even disturbing. chris alexander

Younger Olsen carves out her acting niche Liberal Arts. Actress says she’s finally at the point where she can choose roles — and she was thrilled for her latest film heidi patalano

Metro World News in New York

For someone who hails from a Hollywood family, you’d expect Elizabeth (Lizzie) Olsen to have some modicum of pretension about her. Older sisters Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have after all created a fashion empire, part of which bears her name (clothing line Elizabeth and James, after herself and their brother). But when this

Olsen enters the room at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York, she settles into a chair, peeling off a blazer because, “you can’t see sweat stains anymore” and smiles at us while her publicist cringes. Short-listed as one of the top rising stars of Hollywood, Olsen has received heaps of praise for her role in last year’s dark cult film, Martha Marcy May Marlene. But it wasn’t until the script for writer, director and actor Josh Radnor’s film Liberal Arts came across her desk that Olsen had felt as though she’d arrived. “Liberal Arts became the first movie that I actually made the choice to do, whereas all the other movies that I’ve done were all like ‘thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me a job,’” the actress admits. “So Liberal Arts is like, starting

movies where I was like ‘oh, I think I’d like to do that.’” In the film, Olsen plays a wise young co-ed who falls for Radnor’s character, Jesse, someone 17 years her senior. He finds her at his old alma mater where, in part, he returns for the nostalgia for a better time in his life. Interestingly, the 23 year-old actress seems to have

a keen awareness of aging herself. “I write letters to myself for the future,” she says. “I read one from when I was in seventh grade to my graduating senior high school self and that was so crazy, because you feel like you’re in a parallel universe where little you is still existing and you’re talking to older you.” As for Olsen’s future, expect to see her in upcoming dramas Therese Raquin and Kill Your Darlings. She also confirms the filming of Spike Lee’s latest film, the thriller Old Boy. But she likely won’t be having her parents come for a set visit. “They always want to come and visit and I’m like ‘I don’t know, depends what we’re filming that day. Could be really violent, I could be getting raped.’”

Selena Gomez can sympathize with Dracula’s daughter Growing pains. Young actress who voices character in Hotel Transylvania knows what it’s like to have wanderlust Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Being Dracula’s daughter can be a drag. That’s the lesson Selena Gomez learned making Hotel Transylvania, in which she voices the 118-year-old perpetual teenager Mavis, living in the titular lodging with her overprotective father (voiced by Adam Sandler) and longing to see the world. Despite her character’s advanced age, Gomez didn’t have too much trouble connecting with Mavis. “I’m not 118, but it’s fun for me to kind of grow up,” she says. “I want to be able to see places, too. I get to travel and I’m very lucky to get to go to the places that I go to, but I never actually have been to the places alone or with friends, and I’ve never had that, so I think I’m going through that a little bit, doing things on my own a little bit more and having a little bit of that freedom.” In that travel that she’s already doing — for work, mostly — she sees her fair

share of hotels herself, though they don’t necessarily make much of an impression. “To be honest, I’m in places for, like, a day so I don’t even know where I’m staying. “My mom’s more about spas, so I just kind of follow my mom,” she says. “We stay in different places all the time — fun ones, cool ones. I’ve stayed in haunted ones too, before. It was actually for my birthday, so this sounds a little weird, but I like getting scared. We were on tour and they had me stay in a hotel in Utah and it was haunted. “Nothing happened, so I was a little bummed, but it was spooky being there.” Having gotten her start on the Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place, Gomez clearly has a thing for the supernatural — even if the connection hadn’t occurred to her before now. “I didn’t even think about that. I guess so,” she says with a laugh. “With my show we were

able to bring kids’ imaginations to life a little bit. We were able to be invisible and fly and walk on walls, and that’s stuff that every kid wishes they had the ability to do. “We’re able to kind of bring that alive a little bit, which is something we’re doing with this movie as well. “We’re bringing all the characters from Frankenstein to Dracula to new characters like the daughter. It’s just fun to kind of bring that to life.” And Gomez isn’t so worried about bringing those characters — along with mummies and werewolves and other monsters — to a younger audiences. “People have kind of changed their perceptions of monsters within tons of movies that have come out, so in a way it’s more fun for kids,” she says. “And it’s hard to scare kids now, it really is. Going to haunted houses, going to those things, watching those movies, it’s hard to scare them.”

Quoted

“I want to be able to see places, too. I get to travel and I’m very lucky to get to go to the places that I go to, but I never actually have been to the places alone. ... So I think I’m going through that a little bit.” Selena Gomez on identifying with her 118-year-old teen character in Hotel Transylvania

Which sitcom is for you?

If you prefer to hang out with friends...

Your apartment, or the apartment of your friends, is so awesome, there’s little need to hang out elsewhere.

New Girl As Jess’ (Zoe Deschanel) “adorkable” factor was toned down and focus was put on her friendship with her male roommates (Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson and Lamorne Morris, who proved just as capable playing goofy as their female counterpart), New Girl grew to become last season’s best buddy comedy — complete with a drinking game, True American.

Go On Matthew Perry stars as a recently widowed sportscaster who finds wacky but loving new friends in a grief support group. Now airing Wednesdays on Global. The New Normal Every family has a little crazy in it. The loose screw comes in the form of a bigoted grandma (Ellen Barkin) in this sitcom. A committed gay couple (Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha) hiring a single mom (Georgia King) to carry their child may seem untraditional, but their situation is full of love (and some bitingly funny moments) regardless. Airs Tuesday on CTV. Ben and Kate Slacker Ben (Nat Faxon) and frazzled single mom Kate (Dakota Johnson) are odd couple/best friend siblings who become roommates when perennial couch surfer Ben moves in for good. Their affectionately antagonistic relationship will ring true if you grew up close to a brother or sister you also wanted to strangle. Premieres Tuesday, Citytv.

The Mindy Project The reasons we fell in love with New Girl apply here — Mindy (Mindy Kaling), an OBGYN who doesn’t look like she’s moonlighting as a runway model, is successful in her professional life but a total failure when it comes to love. A vet of The Office, Kaling brings optimism to the most cynical comedy — the New York City dating scene — even if she does resort to taking advice from a toy. Premieres Tuesday, Citytv.

A Revolution is beginning Television. New Citytv fantasy imagines a world with no electricity, but plenty of adventure Amber Ray

Metro World News

Life in a post-apocalyptic world is pretty depressing stuff — just check The Walking Dead or The Hunger Games. But dystopian drama doesn’t have to be quite so dark, even if all of the lights go out. The new NBC (Citytv in Canada) drama Revolution, from fantasy masters Eric Kripke (Supernatural), J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Jon Favreau (Iron Man), imagines a world where the electricity suddenly shuts off. Fifteen years later, America sans TV and Twitter is a lawless, dangerous place. But the show makes surviving on your wits with primitive resources look, well, kind of fun.

Quote

“There’s a lot of heart in all of the characters. I think that’s what makes this different from all the shows that are more about characters fighting to save their lives everyday.” Tracy Spiridakos

“It’s an adventure show,” says Tracy Spiridakos, who plays Revolution lead Charlie. “People view it as a postapocalyptic sort of thing but it’s not. There’s a lot of heart.” Her father murdered and brother kidnapped by militia leaders, we meet the crossbow-wielding Charlie as she heads to Chicago to enlist the aid of her estranged uncle in the search for her sibling. Fight scenes with swords certainly add to the swashbuckling dynamic of the series, but more stylistic than the show’s out-of-date weaponry

Role preparation • Tracy Spiridakos has

had plenty of real-world training for her role as a survivor of a permanent blackout in the fantasy drama Revolution. If you include her time spent in front of the TV, that is.

• “I love being able to get out of my world, which is why I love playing video games,” the actress says. “I like jumping into a world that isn’t my own and exploring it. I don’t think of the restrictions — this isn’t possible, this couldn’t happen, don’t do this or don’t do that. I just pretend like it could. So this has been a really, really exciting journey for me.”

out and what happened in the aftermath are slowly revealed. Her perspective, so honest and full of good intentions, is what gives the show its light. “Charlie has grown up in this world (without electricity); it’s just life to her,” Spiridakos says. “She comes across some crazy, intense things as the series goes on, and she’s obviously in a lot of danger a lot of the time, but she sees the good in people. She’s not jaded. Even though she has seen a lot of death, she’s still full of love no matter what. That’s what drives her.” State of panic “Charlie’s mission is Danny right now, her main drive, who is her baby brother, he’s all that she has left, even though Miles is her uncle and her family, but Danny is

Not Mad Max

• Producers brought levity to the lights-out drama by focusing on characters, like Charlie, who don’t view a lack of electricity as a disaster. • “While people are struggling to hold onto shreds of the old society and struggling to get the lights back on and figure out the solutions to the mystery, there’s Charlie’s genera-

tion, who see this almost as a pastoral, simple place that they grew up,” explains producer Jon Favreau. • “This is the only world they know. And we wanted to show a lot of the show through their eyes so it didn’t feel like The Road or Mad Max, but instead felt like this wonderland,” added Favreau.

of these awful people who do these awful things to everybody else, what makes her think that they’re not going to do it to her brother, she’s constantly in a state of panic almost trying to get to him and trying to sort out how it is to get him back.”

Stars share their Emmy-day RXs Attending the Emmy Awards as a nominee is the kind of heady experience that sends even veteran actors’ and show-runners’ tummies aflutter. But, of course, the show must go on. Stars say they turn to booze, tunes and deep breaths to prepare for such moments. Here’s what some of this year’s nominees would prescribe for a case of Emmy-day nerves on Sunday. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family “Oh, gosh. Maybe some vodka. A flask of vodka, I think. Don’t you think? Oh, absolutely. Maybe a Quaalude. Perfect. There you go.”

Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation “Oh, you mean pharmaceutically? Hmm. Baby aspirin. Baby aspirin and maybe just like a small children’s pool of sangria.”

Maya Rudolph, Saturday Night Live

Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory

“Champagne always makes a person happy. At least a bottle. Yeah. For myself.”

“Music. Music. I’m going to vote for either Adele’s 21 or Decemberists’ The King is Dead. Music soothes the savage beast.”

ZooeyDeschanel, New Girl “Actors, the thing is, we’re used to getting nervous. That’s sort of our thing. You get nervous and you know how to get through it. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to go on stage or shoot.... I would say if I’m nervous, I would just drink a glass of water and take a deep breath.”

Max Greenfield, New Girl “A case of presence. Yes. Not ‘presents.’ Presence. Yes, we want to bring ourselves into the present moment and say, ‘Hey! Look at this. Look what’s happening. Let’s be grateful for this moment and take it all in.’ You know what I mean?”

Guest-star dream roles While these stars have earned repeat Emmy nods for their regular gigs, that doesn’t mean they don’t have their eye on some sweet guest-star work. Producers, take note: Here’s a look at the shows these nominees would love to try.

The devil’s in the deal at 666 Finding the perfect Manhattan rental is about as easy as making your wildest dreams come true. Residents at The Drake get both — for a price — on 666 Park Avenue, which premieres Sunday, Sept. 30, on Citytv amber ray

Metro World News in New York

Gavin Doran, owner of The Drake

Henry Martin, The Drake co-manager

Is Gavin a representation of the devil? Terry O’Quinn has an interesting take on his self-interested, wicked character. “My theory is that Gavin’s kind of a sharecropper on the plantation of evil,” the actor says. “He plants the seeds. He only gets half the harvest. He has to feed some back to the building, but he gets his share and he uses people to his own ends.” As for the real existence of evil, O’Quinn believes “it’s in (the human) colour wheel. Just depends on how strong it is in yours.”

Freshly transplanted from the Midwest, Henry and Jane’s eagerness for the promise of New York City may be their downfall. “There’s a reason why they moved to New York, and that’s their ambition,” Dave Annable says. “And I think that Henry and Gavin, their storylines will intertwine. Gavin takes Henry under his wing. I’m very curious to see how that’s going to affect Henry and Jane’s relationship over the course of the season.”

Olivia Doran, wife of Gavin

Jane Van Veen, The Drake co-manager

When Vanessa Williams first read the 666 Park Avenue script, she immediately likened the wealthy real estate icon Gavin to notorious Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff. “(The Madoffs) had incredible land holdings all over that people knew about and they had a great amount of wealth. And then we all saw the dark side.” As for the well-appointed Olivia, Williams says she views her character as “kind of like a mafia wife, where (Gavin) has supreme power.”

New to New York herself, Rachael Taylor relates to the allure of The Drake. “I just looked for an apartment in New York City and it was really distressing,” she admits. As for what happens after Jane and Henry move in, Taylor says the show strives to keep all of the scary supernatural stuff as grounded as possible. “If you have an instinct that something is a little bit creepy-deepy, you will rationally try and resist that as long as you can.”

Reinventing a classic Television. Elementary creator and stars break down their characters Amber Ray

Metro World News

In the new Global drama Elementary, eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes surfaces in New York City after a stint in rehab. He is forced to accept the aid of a sober companion, Dr. Joan Watson, to help in his recovery, though he believes his best shot at redemption is through helping his pal in the NYPD solve the city’s toughest cases. Meet the modern incarnations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s crime solvers. Sherlock Holmes, played by Jonny Lee Miller His past “Oh, yeah — he’s definitely got mental issues,” Miller says. “I wouldn’t say a mental illness or anything like that, but he’s got issues, personal issues.” Series creator Rob Doherty teases that “something terrible happened to (Sherlock) in London. He spiralled out of control. Our Sherlock has emerged with what I think is at his core just a tiny kernel of self doubt where one previously never existed.”

Lucy Liu stars alongside Jonny Lee Miller in Elementary. handout

Miller — whose own tattoos are visible in character — says that inner turmoil is what makes the brilliant, yet socially inept, Sherlock relatable. “He struggles with his own sense of self,” Miller says. “People can identify with that.” The present

Whereas some incarnations of Sherlock may have been considered sociopathic, the detective in Elementary isn’t simply seeking the thrill of the chase when he takes on a new case. “Our Sherlock is a puzzle solver,” says Doherty. “I see him as someone who is driven … to

do the right thing, to help people. At the end of the day, he believes in justice. It’s not just about putting bad guys behind bars. Helping people and doing the right thing are factors that play into it as well.” His future If there is one foe that defines Sherlock, it’s Moriarty. Doherty promises the detective’s nemesis will factor into the series, but is reluctant to give away too many details. “He was such a shadowy figure,” Doherty says. “I think he was described as the spider at the centre of the web of crime in London. He’s the man behind the man behind the man. In other words, there are a few dominos we knock over before we ultimately get to him.” Dr. Joan Watson Played by Lucy Liu

Like you.

Her past Though Watson may not act out like the abrasive, dysfunctional Sherlock, the doctor may be just as damaged as her charge. “She was a surgeon and lost her licence, which gives her sort of a dark past that we still don’t know about (in the pilot), and we may not discover for a little while,” Liu says. “What we want to do is introduce the audience to the characters, and then sort of slowly unravel a little bit about her personal history.” The present Watson’s obligations to Sherlock are professional — keep him sober and safe — until she realizes she’s not such a bad private investigator herself. “(Watson) is on the sideline (in the pilot), observing him, because she’s his sober companion,” Liu says. “So she’s not engaged in the mystery. She’s engaged

in him, and from that point on, then you get to see how that sort of blossoms out.” Her future With a female Watson as Sherlock’s sidekick, is a hookup imminent? Going back to the source material, Liu notes Sherlock’s “awkward relationship with the other gender.” Making his trusted companion a woman, she says, “is a constant reminder of that awkwardness and that division between being a friend,” or something more. Miller insists the friendship is core to Elementary, just as it has been in all other takes on crime fighting duo. But sexual tension, he admits, is inevitable. “There is that element, and people are going to wonder,” he says. “But then wondering and asking questions is something that you really want your audience to do, isn’t it?”

As LMFAO takes a break, Redfoo dives into all things sports — and new music New interests. Older half of duo recording solo, coaching tennis and performing with gymnasts LMFAO’s Redfoo is still party rocking, but these days, he’s doing it without his partnerin-fun, Sky Blu. Redfoo says he and Sky Blu — who is also his nephew — are taking a break as they focus on their own interests, personally and professionally. “I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years. And we’re kind of like saying, ‘Well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that,’ instead of like forcing it all the time,” Redfoo, 37, explained in a phone interview. For the wild-haired Redfoo, his explorations have not only taken him to re-

cord new music solo, they have also opened up a world in sports. Earlier this month, he was in the stands at the U.S. Open rooting on new BFF Victoria Azarenka, who came in second to Serena Williams for the women’s championship. He’s also been performing on some dates with the Fierce Five of women’s gymnastics as the gold-winning Olympic team tours the nation, and he’s been spending time on the tennis courts in Las Vegas as a coach for a junior player. Redfoo said he recently began coaching Ayaka Okuno, practicing several hours a day with her in Las Vegas. “I kind of use the Phil Jackson approach which I teach her some vague things — I teach her how to think for herself on the court,” he said. “She’s really good at selfanalyzing.”

He’s also planning his own line of tennis clothing and sponsoring the United States Tennis Association’s Party Rock Open in Las Vegas starting Sunday. Tennis isn’t his only love, though. He’s performed on the USA Gymnastics tour, and he is also trying to make a tune for the New England Patriots. “I’m actually working on a song for them, because they asked me to write a song for their season,” he said of the Krafts, who own the team. But it will likely be some time before he writes anything for LMFAO. Although he’s been recording, he didn’t know when he and Sky Blu might unite musically, adding that they are going in “different directions.” “I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but

straying far from hits like Sexy and I Know It and Party Rock Anthem. “All the music that I’m going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish ... I love

all the topics that we talk about,” he said. “I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”

Timberlake. Star says he struggles to turn out music He brought SexyBack, but don’t quite wait for Justin Timberlake to bring his music back — just yet. The singing superstar said his music making process is fueled by life’s experiences and making an album “is a really big deal.” “For me, personally, when I do sit down and decide to do it, it’s just a special thing,” he said in an interview Wednesday night. Timberlake is engaged to actress Jessica Biel. He’s appeared in a ton of mov-

ies in recent years, from The Social Network to Friends With Benefits. This week he’s in Trouble With the Curve, alongside Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. His last album was 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, a Grammy-winning record that launched three No. 1 hits and sold more than four million units in the United States. He’s appeared on songs by other musicians but has not released his own music since. the associated press

McLachlan trying for more positive songs Canadian singer. Known for her sad, emotional ballads, the local star says she is now going for something upbeat After releasing perhaps her saddest album yet, Sarah McLachlan says she’s trying to write more upbeat material. The three-time Grammy winner says she’s penned five songs for her next disc but plans to devote more time to new material beginning in late fall, with the tentative aim of releasing a new album in 2013. That release date might sound optimistic for the methodical McLachlan – but that’s right in line with the way she’s tried to view the world of late. “I’m really working on being more positive,” the friendly 44-year-old said in a recent interview from Vancouver, where she lives. “(I’m trying) to think about what it is you want in your life, and then putting it out there, and then trying to sort of not look back.

“There was a lot of real heartfelt stuff on there. But you know, there is on every record. And I think they are all sort of postcards of where I am emotionally.” Sarah McLachlan Talking about her new album.

“And that’s been tricky, because in my writing, that’s what I do. I look back. I reflect. And I’m really trying to be more forward-thinking in my writing.” McLachlan’s effort to let a little more light into her songwriting comes after arguably her bleakest album

yet, 2010’s Laws of Illusion. That sad, lovelorn record was released two years after McLachlan split with drummer Ashwin Sood, her husband of 11 years with whom she shares two daughters. The album, which opened at No. 2 on the Canadian chart, found McLachlan probing

the remains of her relationship and trying to move forward. “I went through some (crap),” she says now with a laugh as she casts her mind back to that period. “There was a lot of real heartfelt stuff on there. But you know, there is on every

record. And I think they are all sort of postcards of where I am emotionally. And my outlook is really very positive, and I’m ever hopeful. So I’m really trying to figure out a way to interject more of that into the music. “I don’t know if I’ll succeed.”

And yet she knows that if she gets too upbeat, fans who flock to her fluttering vocals for a dose of harmonious heartbreak could be, well, heartbroken. “Yeah, like: ‘Oh my God, she’s gone on Prozac,”’ said McLachlan, who had to cancel a performance at Toronto’s Massey Hall on Thursday. “Believe me, there’s still going to be some good gutwrenchers. Because that’s my happy place.” The Building a Mystery songwriter will also be feted this weekend when she receives a star on the Canada’s Walk of Fame alongside fellow inductees Randy Bachman, former CFLer Russ Jackson and late funnyman Phil Hartman.

Ben Folds goes from nightmares to reunion Until his epiphany in a photographer’s darkroom, Ben Folds used to have nightmares about a reunion with his old group, Ben Folds Five. Seriously. He’d dream of getting ready for a gig and being whisked away to a theatre where Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee were waiting before a big crowd. He’d wake up sweating. Those days are over, with the combustible trio of singer-songwriter and pianist Folds, bass player Sledge and drummer Jessee a unit again. Their first album since 1999, The Sound of the Life of the Mind, is out this week and they’ll be on tour this fall. Why they broke up in the first place isn’t easy to explain. “We’ve never even talked about it,” Folds said. “We’ve been asked together, but when we’re asked, we all sort of look at each other because we’re not sure. There’s a trail of emails that can probably tell you.” Folds maintained a steady, eclectic career following the breakup. He had some conventional solo albums and made a disc with a cappella versions of his songs by him and college

choirs. He was a judge on The Sing-Off and wrote music with novelist Nick Hornby. He lived in southern Australia for several years. While developing photos one day he recalled times when he acted like an idiot, arguments where he realized upon reflection he was wrong. It was an emotional moment. The nightmares ended. Sledge was taken aback when Folds simply said, “I’m sorry,” out of the blue one time when they talked. Folds called his old friends

in 2008 when he was asked to perform songs from their last album live. Any awkwardness quickly slipped away. “I could really understand how meaningful the work was,” Sledge said. “I felt like there was a real point to this band. There’s a certain level of intellectualism. There’s a chemistry in this band that is not something that I’ve ever had in my life. It was worth jumping on a plane and flying around the world. And I missed them.” The Associated Press

Shakira’s hips didn’t lie After months of speculation, Shakira has confirmed that she’s pregnant. “As some of you may know, (boyfriend) Gerard (Pique) and I are very happy awaiting the arrival of our first baby,” the singer posted on her website. “At this time we have decided to give priority to this unique moment in our lives and postpone all the promotional activities planned over the next few days.” Shakira was scheduled to

Amanda Bynes may be making headlines regularly for her troubles behind the wheel and her increasingly erratic behaviour, but the actress herself is “doing amazing,” she tells People magazine during a phone call this week. “I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line,” she says. “I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don’t drink, and I don’t drink and drive. It is all false.” But while the former Nickelodeon star herself may think everything’s

fine, her nearest and dearest aren’t so confident. “People around Amanda are really concerned about her,” a source tells the magazine. “She tells people she doesn’t party or drink. She doesn’t realize she has a problem.” And her behaviour is getting even weirder. On Tuesday night, she was kicked out of a spin class at her L.A. gym, per TMZ. Apparently, the class had started but Bynes stopped cycling and started wandering around the class. Once she found another bike, she hopped aboard but then took off her shirt, revealing a “tiny black strapless push up bra ... not a sports bra,” says a witness. She cycled a bit more and then stopped to apply make-up for a full 10 minutes before the instructor threw her out. This is sad. All of these stories on Bynes’ increasingly weird behaviour reminds me of Brittany Murphy — and we all know how that turned out.

Dax Shepard admits his wild past was a bit much for fiancée Kristen Bell when they first met. “All the things I’d done were terrifying to her, and she had a hard time believing I would ever be able to stay married and monogamous and a father and all those things. For the first

Trouble with Suri Katie Holmes’ split from Tom Cruise has not been easy on her six-year-old daughter, Suri, a friend of the actress tells Us Weekly. “She said the divorce has been hard on Suri and she’s acting out,” the source says, adding that Holmes is determined to not indulge the girl’s every wish just to appease her. “Katie says no to some things, but gives a little leeway. She knows Tom is going to spoil her.”

This is one of the most beautiful and delicious recipes to serve. Use a variety of coloured tortillas to make it even more spectacular. When this dish is cut open to expose the tomato sauce, vegetables and cheese, it looks amazing.

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

6.

Add oil to saucepan and keep over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the red and green peppers. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the tomato sauce, charred corn, basil, chili powder and cumin. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat.

4. Place the chickpeas in a bowl and mash them roughly with a fork. Add to the vegetable mixture and stir to combine.

preheated oven, then uncovered for 10 minutes or until it is completely heated through and the cheese has melted. Cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife.

Ming, Mario, Marc, Masaharu: celeb chefs team with Matt Damon to raise money for cancer cause

When you grow up in Nova Scotia, you quickly come to realize that a few things are pretty much a given. 1) You must own Anne Murray’s Greatest Hits. 2) Even on a bad day, you have to be friendly to tourists. 3) You’re born with a love of fresh seafood. As a bluenoser, I was brought up on more than just lobster. Scallops and mussels were a menu regular at my house. Sadly, the one mollusk that eluded me as a kid was oyster. Now that I can eat what I want, I like nothing better than to shuck my way through a dozen or so of our country’s amazing oyster output over a glass of one of the many wines that pair so well with them. If you’re up for the classics, a dry French Chablis, Muscadet or anything with champagne in its name is a marriage made in heaven. A modern take on the perfect pairing is any vino made from sauvignon blanc. New Zealand makes rock solid versions with the Whitehaven 2010 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc ($17.99 $19.99), a citrusinfused wonder that plays so well with oysters when both meet in your mouth.

A relaxed host is one of the keys to a successful dinner party. getty images

Party planning. The Top Chef host, cookbook author, model and actress takes the stress out of impressing guests MEREDITH ENGEL

Metro World News in New York City

Make your shopping trips easier Maybe you need some weird spice or some specialty ingredient ... You can always call ahead,” Lakshmi advises. “Call the spice shop and say, ‘Hi, I’m coming down to pick up yuzu, do you have it in stock? Can you save a bottle by the register? I’ll be there in half an hour.’ That way, you know it’s waiting for you. Even give them a credit card, have them run it. You pick it up, you sign the bill, you’re home that much faster. Design the menu around your guests If you have a guest list of people you know well and you know that a certain person likes a certain dish, it is nice to make it for them because it shows you’re thinking about them and what pleases them. The No. 1 thing that a good host or hostess should remember is that hosting a party is about

making others feel welcome. It’s about making other people feel loved and thought about and making other people have a good time. Prep early so you can enjoy yourself The No. 1 key to having a good party — whether it’s a cocktail party or a barbecue or a formal dinner party — is when the host is relaxed. The way to ensure that is preparation. Don’t wait until the last minute to go shopping or plan your menu. Try to plan a menu that has at least half or two-thirds of the items on it that can be made ahead ... You want to make things that are easy on you. Nobody comes to a party for the food. They actually really come to the party for the people. Serve a buffet If it’s a dinner party for more than six or eight people, I always do it buffet. It allows your guests to mingle with other people rather than just the person to their left and right, and it allows you to have more guests rolling in and out. Choose the right music Music is important in the beginning, especially when the first guests are arriving — so there’s not crickets or silence. If you’re planning a soundtrack, you should plan it for the whole evening: maybe cocktail-y music at the start. During dinner, I like jazz or classical, mostly instrumental, because I’m interested in the conversation.

Your party timeline

Make your list and check it twice. • Three weeks before:

Send invitations. “I think you want to give people time to make room in their schedule for the party ... whether (your invite is) just an e-mail or a phone call saying, ‘Hey, I want to have you over for dinner, how does three Thursdays from now look?’”

• Within a week of the

party: Get a guest head count. “If I’m planning a dinner party for six, that’s different than a cocktail party for 60 or a buffet for 36.”

• Three or four days

before: Start stocking up. “There’s some things, like flowers and fruit, that you want to buy three or four days in advance so they have a chance to bloom, to ripen ... Talk to your florist, say, ‘What days do the flowers come in?’ They’ll tell you.”

• The day of: Buy any

last-minute items and prepare what you can in advance. “Fish you always want to buy the day of, you want it to be fresh ... Make a salad, make a quiche, warm the quiche up in the oven.”

A’s show blowout power in winning finale in Detroit Seth Smith homered, doubled and drove in four runs, and the Oakland Athletics avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Detroit Tigers 12-4 Thursday in a matchup of AL playoff contenders. Both teams began the day in second place in their divisions, and Oakland held an edge in the wild-card race. The Tigers fell 2 1/2 games behind the Centralleading Chicago White Sox, who played later at Kansas City. Outscored 18-4 in the first two games, Oakland held down Miguel Cabrera to win the finale. Cabrera singled in four at-bats, and tops the AL in batting at .333. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

European exodus not all rosy, IIHF head says NHL lockout. ‘Integrity of game’ should come before short-term business gains: Fasel The steady flow of star players to European teams during the NHL lockout could distort national competitions, International Ice Hockey Federation president Rene Fasel said Thursday. Fasel told The Associated Press that he balanced the increased attention for European hockey against potential damage to the integrity of leagues, especially if players return to North America midseason. “It’s questionable how fair it is to the others (teams) and the whole league system,” Fasel said by telephone from Tokyo, where the governing body has its congress next week. “The integrity of the game is, for us, something very important. It’s not just business,” the world hockey leader said. “We play the game for the hockey fans, but sport should always be No. 1. Sport should also be about fairness to everybody.” Since the lockout started, players have turned to Europe to find playing time and salaries until the stalemate between the league and NHL players’ union is resolved. Fasel said it is good for fans to see stars come home, including two-time MVP Alex Ovechkin to Russian club Dynamo Moscow and New York Islanders captain Mark Streit with Switzerland’s best-supported club, Bern. “That is very positive, there’s no doubt,” said Fasel, a former Swiss league referee. “Mark Streit never played in Switzerland when he was a

A late offensive surge turned a tight game into a seven-inning rout as Canada started its journey back to the World Baseball Classic with a decisive win. Canada scored eight runs in the seventh inning Thursday to beat Great Britain 11-1. It looked like it would be close after a Britain home run cut Canada’s lead to 3-1 after six innings, but instead Canada’s huge seventh saw the game end early on the 10-run rule.

Lions defensive lineman not showing any signs of remorse ahead of big rematch; Riders have to focus on more than just Cornish; Bombers’ misery no laughing matter

2 4 6 Photos by The Canadian Press/Torstar News Service

Cornish the Stamps’ standout

Round and round in Edmonton

Ticats looking good all around

Jon Cornish has to be the Stamps’ nominee for outstanding player this season, with 880 yards rushing and a chance to be the first Canadian back to claim the rushing title in more than two decades. That said, imagine where the 7-4 Stamps would be today without backup QB Kevin Glenn.

You have to think the Eskimos offence is taking sides in the locker-room as Kavis Reed spins the wheel of fortune to choose his starting quarterback. Reed has announced that former No. 1 pivot Steven Jyles is back in the hotseat after temporarily losing his job to backup Kerry Joseph.

Hamilton fans have to be hoping that last week’s 43-point win over Edmonton was a glimpse of the real Tiger-Cats. Henry Burris and the offence was dominant, while the defence completely shut down the Esks. The Tabbies couldn’t wish for a better matchup as they travel to Winnipeg.

1 3 5 Mitchell on way to Edmonton

Sadly, what goes around doesn’t always come around and B.C. Lion Khalif Mitchell is sounding anything but contrite as he gets ready to face Simeon Rottier and the Eskimos on Saturday. It’s a rematch of a July game when Mitchell purposely wrenched Rottier’s arm into a mangled mess, receiving a two-game ban.

Cornish not only concern for Riders

Riders coach Corey Chamblin created a stir by indicating someone would lose his job if Jon Cornish posts a 100-yard game against the Riders this Sunday in Regina. Cornish rumbled for 159 yards against the Riders a couple of weeks ago, but so much focus on him could open up opportunities for Calgary in other offensive areas.

Burke gets tough with lousy club

It’s OK for all of us to laugh at the sad-sack Bombers, but head coach Tim Burke has made it painfully clear it’s not all right for the players to get their chuckles on the sidelines. Burke was brutally honest in reprimanding his players for lacking maturity and not giving enough effort last weekend in Calgary.

Revis cleared for contact in practice for Jets

EVERY EVERY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY

Darrelle Revis is back in action for the New York Jets. The All-Pro cornerback was cleared Thursday for contact in practice for the first time since suffering a concussion in the team’s season opener. And, as far as Revis is concerned, there’s no doubt whether he’ll be on the field against the Dolphins in Miami. “I’m playing,” Revis said after practice. “The doctors cleared me, so I’ll be playing Sunday.” He has no more restrictions, and just to show how ready he is, Revis jokingly

EVERY FRIDAY

added: “I can bang my head on a wall if I want to.” Coach Rex Ryan was also optimistic about Revis’s chances of playing Sunday, but said before practice that he’ll lean on the team’s doctors before saying the cornerback will definitely be on the field in Miami. “If it’s not the final hurdle, I don’t want to be saying something that isn’t true,” Ryan said. Revis practised fully Thursday after passing all required tests. He needed to be cleared by the team physician and an independent neurologist to participate

EVERY SATURDAY

Missing from action

Without Revis on the field, the Jets allowed Ben Roethlisberger to throw for 275 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a passer rating of 125.1. • New York (1-1) will take on AFC East-rival Miami (1-1) this week

in contact drills. Revis was injured Sept. 9 against Buffalo when he was accidentally kicked in the head by

teammate Bart Scott while attempting a tackle. The cornerback said he didn’t need to be re-evaluated after practice since he was cleared medically, so barring a setback, Revis will be back in the Jets’ secondary on Sunday. “I think you feel good when you have the best player on the field,” Ryan said. “That can’t hurt you.... There’s only one Darrelle Revis. I know I feel great about it. It’s hard not to smile if he’s out there. You feel great as a play-caller.” The ASsociated Press

Skicross summit provides closure Encouraging safety. Father of competitor who died racing at World Cup speaks, praises organizers for improving standards Alpine Canada’s safety summit on skicross gave the father of Nik Zoricic a measure of comfort. Predrag (Bebe) Zoricic returned to Toronto from Calgary feeling his son’s death in a World Cup race last winter has sparked a will to make the sport safer, within Canada at least.

“This summit is going to bring some peace and closure to my family,” Zoricic said Thursday at a news conference to close the summit. “It’s part of the healing process for us. The only way you can bring Nik back is if these changes are done and the future of skicross is brighter than it is right now.” Nik Zoricic died of head injuries sustained in a crash during a World Cup race in Grindelwald, Switzerland, last March. He was 29. Skicross involves four skiers racing down a course of bumps and jumps. Canada’s skicross team includes Olympic women’s champion Ashleigh McIvor as

well as reigning world champions Kelsey Serwa and Chris Del Bosco. Predrag Zoricic was invited to speak at Alpine Canada’s second safety summit not only as a grieving parent, but also as a ski coach. The inaugural summit last year produced measures intended to make alpine racing safer domestically in the

wake of several severe injuries on the national ski team. The International Ski Federation (FIS) classifies skicross as a freestyle discipline. In Canada, it falls under Alpine Canada’s umbrella. Appointing FIS’s technical delegate in Canada, Ted Savage, as a national safety consultant for skicross, paraalpine and alpine events was among the measures adopted by Alpine Canada. Lobbying FIS to build safer courses was another recommendation. Alpine Canada has authority over domestic races, but World Cup and world championship races are the responsibility of FIS.

MLB. Yankees wrap up series sweep over Jays with Swisher grand slam Streaking Ichiro Suzuki hit a go-ahead, two-run double in a seven-run fourth inning capped by Nick Swisher’s grand slam, and the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 Thursday night to open a one-game AL East lead over idle Baltimore. After struggling for much of the summer, the Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays and have won five in a row, their longest winning string since June 23-27. Backed by an 8-2 lead, Phil Hughes (16-12) lasted just five innings. Toronto trailed 10-4 before a three-run eighth. David Robertson got three outs for his second save this season and first since May 8. New York was down 2-0 before Suzuki’s solo home run in the third. He hooked a bases-

loaded double to right in the fourth on an 0-2 pitch, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead and extending Suzuki’s spurt to nine hits in 10 at-bats. That chased starter Aaron Laffey (3-6), and reliever Brad Lincoln loaded the bases with a walk to Jayson Nix. Derek Jeter followed with an RBI for a 14-game hitting streak, and Swisher sent a 96 mph fastball into the right-field seats for his seventh career slam and third this season. The Associated press

NFL. Offences having their way as 1,556 points scored through first two weeks

With last year’s lockout a distant memory, defences had a full off-season to better prepare for the league’s high-octane offences. Yet, the NFL’s mighty scoring machine roars on. Teams have combined for 1,556 points so far, the most ever scored over a two-week span in league history. “I guess it’s good for people’s fantasy teams,” said Detroit Lions defensive end Cliff Avril. Last year, there were 1,502 points scored over the first

two weeks on the heels of the lockout that ended just in time for a crash course in training camp. This year, teams had all off-season, if fewer padded practices, to gel. Not that it’s paid off for defences. The rules and regulations that govern pro football have long tilted toward offence, resulting in an aerial fireworks show that’s good for ratings — of both the television and quarterback variety. Add to that an eruption this season of spread offences and the no-huddle and you get panting pass-rushers and mismatches with smaller defenders trapped on the field to face towering tight ends and taller receivers who no longer think twice about going over the

middle, certain they’ll get the ball or the call. Delivering those pinpoint passes are ever-sharper quarterbacks. Six passers so far own a completion percentage of 70 per cent or better, led by Minnesota’s Christian Ponder at 75.8 per cent, and four more quarterbacks are within an eyelash of that lofty new benchmark.

The overall completion percentage so far is 62.6 per cent. The NFL record for a season is 61.2 per cent, set in 2007, according to STATS LLC. “What this league has turned into is a spread ’em out passing league,” said New York Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito. Three yards and a cloud of dust is out. Now, it’s more like 15 yards and move the chains. “That’s what fans want to see: ‘Oh my God, he had 187 receiving yards.’ They don’t want to see, ‘Man, the defence held them to 67 yards the whole game,’” said Chiefs cornerback Stanford Routt. “They want to see running backs and wide receivers dancing in the end zone.” The ASsociated Press

Bisping throws down fighting words UFC 152. The Count offers verbal jabs at opponent heading into their bout on Saturday English middleweight Michael (The Count) Bisping stole the show at the UFC 152 news conference Thursday, jamming his face into opponent Brian (All American) Stann as the two posed for photos. Bisping and Stann stood nose-to-nose, then the Brit leaned forward and edged his forehead into the American’s face. Stann moved back a step and then stood his ground, their eyes locked. When they broke the pose, Stann paused before being the first to put out his hand and they shook. Quoted

“Life is about moving forward.... I believe a good performance (Saturday) will definitely help people forget.” Michael Bisping, left, and Brian Stann face off during the UFC 152 pre-fight press conference in Toronto on Thursday. Stann will be fighting Bisping at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday. Matthew Sherwood/The Canadian Press

But the former marine war hero did not remain with Bisping for a secondary pose for photos. Instead, clearly not happy, Stann glared at the English fighter from the side of the stage while a smirking Bisping took centre stage alone to adopt a fighting stance. Bisping added some trash talk later in the day. “He put his nose against mine and it was like an Eskimo kiss, so I pressed my forehead again his,” Bisping said. “I saw all the macho-ness drain out of him like someone had pulled a plug in a bath. He looked like a little girl who had got separated from her parents at Disneyland and has wet herself, and was all alone and scared. “He knows he can’t win this fight. He probably called home right away and said, ‘Honey, I’m not getting a win bonus. Hold off on ordering that new kitchen.’” Tweeted Stann: “Sat cannot come soon enough.” There were no such fireworks when light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones and challenger Vitor (The Phenom) Belfort or flyweight title contenders Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson faced off.

Soldiering on

Stann keeps fighting in perspective Brian Stann’s military experiences and events like his brother-in-law’s sudden death put things in perspective, and also serve as a reminder that things are not always as they seem. “I’m here doing this right now because I want to provide for my family,” Stann, a father of two, said of his fighting career. Stann has drawn the line recently on discussing his own experiences on the battlefield, specifically the Silver Star he won for his heroics during a six-day firefight in Iraq in 2005. But he says they also put cage-fighting in perspective. “The worst thing that happens in the Octagon is maybe a broken nose, a busted lip. Really the ultimate injury is your pride, that’s it.” The canadian Press

Woods silences critics — for now Shares FedEx Cup lead with Justin Rose. Tiger shakes off opinions that he’s lost his aura and is intimidated by phenom Rory McIlroy

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy at the fourth green at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Thursday.

In the one week Tiger Woods had away from golf during the FedEx Cup playoffs, Nick Faldo said he had lost his aura, Greg Norman said he was intimidated by Rory McIlroy and Johnny Miller claimed that Woods once wanted lessons from him. “Nice week, huh?” Woods said, grinning. Far better was to be back on the course Thursday at the Tour Championship, where Woods had the final word for at least for one day. He kept the ball in play at East Lake Club in Atlanta, chipped in for one of his six birdies and wound up with a 4-under 66 for a share of the lead with Justin Rose. It was the first step toward what Woods hopes is a third FedEx Cup title, and another $10 million US bonus. “I probably could have gotten a couple more out of it,”

Woods said about his opening round. “But I was probably right on my number.” McIlroy, playing with Woods for the fifth time in these FedEx Cup playoffs, got up-and-down from short of the par-3 18th hole for a 69. McIlroy is trying to become the first player since Woods in 2006 to win three straight PGA Tour events in the same season, and he wasn’t overly alarmed by his start. The week began with Norman saying that Woods was intimidated by McIlroy, a suggestion that both players found amusing. While it’s doubtful that inspired Woods, he played as if he wasn’t ready to let McIlroy win a third straight playoff event and capture the FedEx Cup. McIlroy, who has won three of his last four tournaments, and Woods are among the top-five seeds at East Lake who only have to win the Tour Championship to claim the largest payoff in golf. Woods wasn’t interested in what anyone else was doing. “Just winning,” he said. “Winning takes care of everything.” Jack Nicklaus even weighed in on Norman’s

comments to FoxSports.com. Nicklaus was doing a radio interview with ESPN 980 in Washington when told about Norman’s remarks that McIlroy intimidated Woods. Nicklaus said playfully, “Quiet, Greg. Quiet. Down, boy.” “I think Tiger has a lot of wins left in him,” Nicklaus said. “He does have a lot more competition. During the couple of years when Tiger wasn’t really there, all of a sudden you have Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley and I could probably name a halfdozen other guys that have all won and learned how to win in Tiger’s absence. They’re not scared of him anymore.” The Associated Press

Horoscopes

Aries

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Avoid petty disputes today. With your ruling planet Venus on good terms with bighearted Jupiter, the last thing you want is to get caught up in other people’s squabbles. Your sights are set on bigger and better things.

March 21 - April 20 You may come under a lot of pressure today but you have always been the sort who knows how to raise your game when the heat is on, so you’ll do OK. But try not to put any friendships at risk.

Taurus

Scorpio

April 21 - May 21 The only way you are going to get things done, and get them done right, over the next 24 hours is if you do them yourself. Fortunately, with your ruler Venus on good terms with Jupiter, you won’t lack enthusiasm.

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You will go over the top in some way today but somehow it will all come right for you — which may be a huge surprise. Both financially and professionally, it seems you can do no wrong at the moment.

Gemini

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Just because other people are going to extremes does not mean you have to do the same. In fact ,the planets warn that if you go too far today, in any direction, you will regret it over the weekend. Play it safe.

May 22 - June 21 You may be entirely in the right but be wary of starting a feud with someone who may, in the long-term, prove stronger and more ruthless than you. Maybe this time it would be wise to back down.

Cancer

Capricorn

June 22 - July 23 You seemed determined to put yourself to the test, to prove that you have what it takes. But who are you trying to impress: yourself or other people? If it’s the latter, you need to change your outlook a little.

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You don’t have to be assertive, or even aggressive, to get what you desire. Venus and Jupiter come together in such a way that you can quite easily persuade others to give it to you. Don’t abuse the situation though.

Yesterday’s Crossword

Feb. 20 - March 20 With Jupiter, planet of excess, strong in your chart there is a possibility that you will take the kind of risk that is best avoided. On the other hand, if you don’t take a risk how will you progress? It’s your choice.

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Your eagerness to succeed could lead you to show your hand too soon and make it easy for rivals to work out what you are trying to do. Don’t tell anyone, not even friends, what they don’t need to know.

THE ALL SUFFICIENT GOD The all sufficiency of God is further established by the fact that the whole earth belongs to Him and the fullness thereof. Therefore you have no reason to be apprehensive of any situation so long you are ready to surrender all to Jesus; whose death on the cross of Calvary is sufficient for your salvation. He has the abilities to turn your obstacles to miracles, weakness to strength and poverty to riches. Trust in the Lord today and believe that all sufficiency is from Him.
