Airdrie teacher charged with sexual assault Investigation. Third Quoted party revealed alleged “Our school community is deeply alarmed over this relationship with incident ... I want to assure our parents that we are student that RCMP doing whatever we can to assist our students.” believe had been going School principal Ed Polhill on for months Jeremy nolais

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Students and the principal at an Airdrie high school expressed shock Thursday after it was revealed that a teacher had been charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation of a minor. The accused, identified by court documents as 36-year-old John Christopher Miller, had been working at George McDougall High School where his alleged 17-year-old victim attended classes. School principal Ed Polhill said guidance counsellors were on hand to assist students during a diffi-

cult time. “Our school community is deeply alarmed over this incident,” he said, reading from a prepared statement. “I want to assure our parents that we are doing whatever we can to assist our students.” RCMP Cpl. Tony Hamori said allegations against the teacher were brought forward by a third party while members were investigating a hit-and-run collision Tuesday. Miller was arrested in Calgary Wednesday. Polhill declined to answer questions about Miller’s time at George McDougall, however, a spokesperson with Rocky View Schools said the teacher has been suspended until the matter is settled in court.

Hamori said investigators do not believe there are other victims. Students outside of the high school said Thursday they had only just been informed of the allegations against an unidentified teacher during an assembly that morning and had been instructed not to discuss them publicly. “It’s our duty to protect our students and our teachers,” said one girl outside the school during the lunch hour. Many of her peers, however, were quick to comment on the charges on Twitter. “Shocking bit of news too (sic) start the day ... George Mac is messed up this year!” wrote one student.

John Christopher Miller is seen leaving the Airdrie provincial courthouse Thursday after making his first appearance on charges of sexual assault and sexual exploitation. Jeremy Nolais/Metro

Calgary Costa Concordia survivors want justice JEREMY NOLAIS

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Survival was only the beginning. That’s the working title of a book Andrea Davis is penning about her ordeal aboard the ill-fated Costa Concordia cruise ship with her husband, Laurence, and their subsequent struggle upon returning home to Calgary. “We have come a long way and, as hard as it was and emotional as it was, I call it an incredible journey,” she said. The couple had only just ordered a bottle of wine at a dining hall aboard the massive vessel when it smashed into rocks off the Tuscan island of Giglio Jan. 13. With water flooding into the ship, Andrea refused to separate from her husband and take one remaining seat aboard a lifeboat. Instead, the couple swam for shore together, spending more than 20 minutes in frigid water. Thirty-two people died that night. Once she arrived home, Andrea was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disor-

der and struggled for months as a media circus and much controversy swarmed over the actions of the Concordia crew, namely Capt. Francesco Schettino. As part of their emotional healing, the Davises returned to the island for the first time in July to view the ship, still overturned at sea, and meet with some of the locals who embraced them with open arms. “I knew that this was a medical prescription for me, something I needed to do ... to walk across the rocks, to see the path that we had climbed through on that dark and scary night, to see how far we were from land, to see the sunken ship and this horrific, rested memorial of our trauma,” Andrea said. The couple have been watching closely as an inquiry into the Concordia wreck and the actions of Schettino, who could stand trial for multiple counts of manslaughter and abandoning ship, got underway this week. Laurence says only a criminal conviction of the captain would satisfy him. “The worst part about it is we all make mistakes ... but when we do, we at least own up to it,” he said. Andrea agreed. “We hope for justice ... everyone in this world deserves justice.” Follow Jeremy Nolais on Twitter @Metro_Nolais

“There will never come a day where it will just be out of my mind and forgotten.

Cleaning house. Union calls for new management at XL Foods

katie.turner@metronews.ca

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi is looking towards the last year of his term, but has yet to

commit to much beyond that. Speaking at a citizenship ceremony at his alma mater Queen Elizabeth High School Thursday, Nenshi said he’s pleased with some of the accomplishments of council since he was elected, but added there is more to be done. “It’s really easy to talk about the tangibles — the airport tunnel, or the investment in the new rec centres. For me, though, it’s not so much mile-

stones as it is an entire process,” he said. Nenshi cited a shift in the way city government operates

and engaging with the public as two of council’s successes. He said developing a better relationship with the provincial government is something they’re still working on. As for whether he’ll seek a second term, Nenshi remained tight-lipped. “An announcement will be forthcoming soon,” he said. “I’m in the final stages of consulting with citizens as well as friends and family.” Mount Royal University

policy studies associate professor Bruce Foster said if he were a betting man, he’d put his money on Nenshi running again. “He’s a popular mayor and he likes the job — if you’re a professional politician, those are two pretty compelling reasons to stay in the game,” said Foster. “As it stands right now, he’s the guy to beat and he’s going to be a pretty tough guy to beat.”

The union representing workers at an Alberta slaughterhouse shuttered because of E. coli contamination hopes the plant’s new owners come in and clean house. Doug O’Halloran of the United Food and Commercial Workers union received cheers from workers at a news conference Thursday when he said those who have been running the XL Foods Lakeside operation — the black hats — need to be removed. “Some of the management people have to go,” O’Halloran said. “The yellow hats are the workers. The black hats are god or think they are. We all hope some of those black hats are getting their butts kicked down the road, because they’re the problem.” O’Halloran said he is cautiously optimistic about JBS USA taking over the plant in Brooks. The company operates eight beef packers in the United States with 25,000 union employees and O’Halloran said the two sides are on good terms there. Many of the workers on hand shared their president’s cautious optimism. “Everybody is happy. We need new management. We need all new black hats at that plant. We need it new from the top right down,” said Fred, who declined to give his last name. XL Food’s current owners, the Nilsson brothers, have not responded to numerous interview requests since the beef recall began. The Canadian Press

Ten Thousand Villages. Mob good for the ‘hood

Ten Thousand Villages manager Jason Fehr, WINS executive director Cathy Coutts and GoodMob co-founder Scott Lawrence. Lisa Wilton/Metro

A local business is hoping to get mobbed on Friday evening — for a good cause. Ten Thousand Villages, located on Crowchild Trail between Kensington Road and 5th Street N.W., will be the scene of Calgary’s second-ever GoodMob event from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday. Created by brand strategist Scott Lawrence and his partner Gary Ellis, GoodMob is based on the cash mob concept, in which large groups of people meet up at a specified small business and buy products to help support the local economy. GoodMob takes it one step further by partnering with

Calgary-based charities, which receive a percentage of sales from the event. Friday’s GoodMob will benefit the Women In Need Society. “This GoodMob event is unique,” said Lawrence. “There’s the added bonus of all the products at Ten Thousand Villages being fair-trade bought from entrepreneurs in the developing world. You get this other level of support just in what you’re buying.” Cathy Coutts, executive director of WINS, says the event is a good way to draw attention to the charity’s work.

Amanda Todd’s suicide is a painful reminder of how sad it can be to be a teenager. While many of us can relate to being teased, few grown-ups have had to deal with cyber-bullying, which is as unforgiving and brutal as it is relentless. Dealing with bullying is something that I have firsthand experience with, but it’s also something that I’ve never really talked about. Truthfully, Fredericton High School wasn’t exactly an easy place to go to school. With a population of just under 3,000 students in three grades, you’d think it would be easy to hide from bullying. But as anyone who’s ever been teased, taunted or bullied can tell you, it finds you. It always does. For nearly two years, I was made fun of almost daily. Being called “gay,” “f----,” or “homo” was a daily

reality for me. Add in the fact that I barely weighed 100 pounds and was battling an ever-growing bald spot, I was prime target for bullying. Luckily, I never felt as sad as Amanda did, thanks to great friends and teachers who always had my back, even when I didn’t understand why. Then something weird happened. I got a lead role in my school musical, which, as strange as this sounds, made you cool at FHS. Through that role, I learned that I was funny both on and off stage (something weekly readers of this column probably disagree with). Soon, I learned that my ability to make jokes, more than any drug, could win almost anyone over. By the time I graduated, the bullying had subsided, because my burgeoning confidence was a clear repellent. But it wasn’t just being funny that made me feel confident, it was being happy, which is something that I still consider to be more important than

anything else. That’s why I graduated with a degree in Spanish, why I moved across the country with my best friend, why I’ve quit terrible jobs after six weeks, why I’m in the healthiest relationship of my life and why I make sure I write something every single day. Years ago, I made a promise to myself that I would try to always be happy. It doesn’t always happen, but it always gives me a goal, which in turn gives me the invaluable feeling of accomplishment. The death of Amanda Todd has reminded us how important having a conver-

sation with someone in crisis can be. To my knowledge, this column will be the first time my parents will hear about me being bullied in high school. It’s silly that victims would be too embarrassed to talk about it, but I understand why. Tonight, there will be a candlelight vigil for Amanda at Olympic Plaza at 7 p.m. While events like this are important, it’s the conversations that need to start happening both before and after the vigil that are going to start saving lives. For more information about how to deal with bullying, please visit www. bullying.org

When Brenda Somers got a phone call this summer informing her she had won a $750,000 home, the mother of three didn’t believe her ears. When she was handed the keys to the brand-new 2,400-square-foot house in the southeast Calgary community of Walden, she started to realize it was, indeed, a reality. “It’s finally sinking in,” she said on Thursday, after touring the custom-built home. Her children, however, were quick to accept and take advantage of the new

house. Within seconds of starting the tour, six-year-old Tara, four-year-old Jenna and Kerri, who turns three next week, had claimed a room by the front entrance as their “toy room.” The eldest daughter was also making plans for the future. “Tara’s Girl Guides — you know, the little Sparks — they already have a function planned: A sleepover here,” said her father, David Somers. “They’re all bringing their sleeping bags and they’re going to have movie nights and popcorn and all of that. That’s going on next month, already.” The Somers family are the winners of the 2012 Rotary Dream Home, part of the annual Calgary Stampede Lotteries. The building firm Homes by Avi created the house with western-themed elements throughout to reflect the Stampede’s centennial this year. “It’s a pleasure to see

Luck of the draw

• The winning ticket was drawn from 2,582,500 tickets sold. • This year marked the first time the draw was sold out. • Rick Kuzyk, vice-chair of the Calgary Stampede lotteries committee, credits Rotary Club volunteers with doing a “fantastic job” selling tickets. • The Stampede lotteries brought in record revenue this year — nearly $7 million — and the proceeds will be shared among local Rotary, Kinsmen and Lions clubs, as well as the Calgary Marching Show Band Association.

Two walk away from copter crash Transport Canada has been notified after a helicopter crashed at the Innisfail Airport northeast of Calgary Thursday morning. Emergency crews responded to the area shortly after 10:30 a.m. Two people on board the downed chopper were not injured after it plunged 20 feet and hit the ground, according to an RCMP release. An initial investigation of the incident points to a mechanical failure, the release states. RCMP have concluded their investigation and passed on information obtained to federal officials. metro

Five places to get gluten-free goods

1

As more people try to remove gluten (a protein composite found in wheat, rye, barley and malts) from their diet, grocery stores and restaurants are starting to cater to their needs. Metro looks at five locations in Calgary that specialize in gluten-free products:

Gluten Free Marketplace

Since 1977, Community Natural Foods has been the go-to place for those on top of health food trends. And gluten-free is no exception. The store carries a wide variety of gluten-free products, and the café in its 10th Avenue S.W. location features at least one nongluten pizza choice each day. 1304 – 10th Ave. S.W. 202 – 61th Ave. S.W.

This small but funky and friendly bakery specializes in tasty treats such as chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, cakes, brownies and muffins. But it also sells loaves of bread, buns, frozen pizza crusts and gluten-free flour. The shop is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. 1510 – 6th St. S.W.

This trendy Mission watering hole boasts a delicious tapas menu. From salmon nachos, salads and sandwiches to a rich risotto cake, each mouth-watering dish is completely free of wheat. And you can wash your dinner down with gluten-free beers, including New Grist and Estrella Damm Daura. 1410 – 4th St. S.W.

Originally called the purified Water Store, the owners started adding gluten-free products after their daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease. They have more than 2,000 gluten-free items — including condiments, cheeses and pasta — available online at calgaryglutenfree.com and about 1,500 in store. 315, 2555 – 32th St. N.E.

Owner Sheena McFarlane was diagnosed with Celiac disease five years ago. She got so sick of running around the city looking for items on her grocery list she started her own glutenfree food business. The store is open seven days a week and has about 2,000 different products. 222, 40 Country Hills Landing N.W.

Omnibus budget changes. Big bill tables widespread revisions and reductions The latest omnibus budget bill from the Harper government makes changes to everything from the Indian Act and the Canadian Labour Code to the Canada Shipping Act. The bill kills off independent tribunals that examined things such as hazardous materials in the workplace and set the rates for employment insurance premiums, while making workers pay taxes on their employers’ contributions to group health and accident insurance plans. It also sharply reduces project approvals required under the Navigable Waters Protection Act, sets time limits on worker complaints under the Canada Labour Code and makes additional changes to an Environmental Assessment Act that was essentially rewritten by the Conservative government last spring. It lays out a whole new act for the building of a new bridge from Windsor, Ont., to Detroit, while exempting the project from “a number of federal laws under which permits, approvals or authorizations would normally be required.” The bill — the second of

Ex-city planner admits to $600K in cash kickbacks at Charbonneau Commission Montreal corruption. Retired engineer linked to at least 90 construction contracts in which he took a slice of the earnings

Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty speaks during question period in the House of Commons in Ottawa on Thursday. The minister’s contentious omnibus budget bill is the focus of intense criticism from the opposition. Adrian Wyld/the canadian press

two massive implementation acts based on the March federal budget — contains no surprises, said Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who angrily accused the opposition of being too lazy to read last spring’s federal spending blueprint. “If you haven’t read the budget ... I don’t know what you did all summer.... Do your job,” he said. the canadian press

A retired City of Montreal engineer says he collected more than $600,000 in cash kickbacks from construction companies over nearly 20 years. Gilles Surprenant took the stand at the Charbonneau Commission on Thursday, following eight days of headlinegrabbing testimony by ex-construction boss Lino Zambito. Zambito alleged that Surprenant, a chief city planner for many years who prepared plans and budgets for publicworks projects, skimmed one per cent for himself on certain contracts. Surprenant did not discuss the one per cent but admitted

his first “cut” was an envelope containing $3,000 or $4,000 that he received from an entrepreneur in 1991 for a contract he helped pass at city hall. “You take the envelope, you put it in your pocket and it’s ‘Thank you, goodbye,’” Surprenant recalled from that first experience. “You don’t anticipate what else can happen down the road.” But it would happen again. Inquiry investigators have identified at least 90 contracts where Surprenant got a piece of the pie over the years. And commission lawyer Denis Gallant said it proved a regular occurrence between 2000 and his retirement in 2009. But Surprenant said he was always uncomfortable taking the kickbacks and wasn’t even sure what to do with the money. He said he enjoyed a comfortable life on his $80,000 annual salary and wanted to keep a low profile. He’s lived in the same house since 1982 and

never wanted a condominium, a boat or a flashy car. He ultimately found other ways to spend the cash, saying he blew about one-half of it at the Montreal Casino. “It was my way of putting this money back into the coffers of the state,” Surprenant said. About $150,000 went to help a construction company that needed financial help.

Some money was also spent on different things for his three children. As for the roughly $123,000 that remained of the cash, Surprenant said he gave it to inquiry investigators in August, adding that it brought him a great sense of relief. “I was glad to get rid of the money,” Surprenant said. “This money was just bad memories.” The canadian Press

Scout ‘perversion files’ made public Alleged abuse. Thousands of pages of documented sex abuse allegations involving the scouts released in U.S. on Thursday The Boy Scouts of America released decades of so-called “perversion files” Thursday, showing how a range of au-

thorities — from police to pastors — quietly allowed scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children to go free. In many instances — more than a third, according to the Scouts’ own count — police weren’t told about the reports of abuse. And even when they were, sometimes local law enforcement did nothing, seeking to protect Scouting’s reputation.

The confidential papers, released by order of the Oregon Supreme Court, are a window on a much larger collection of documents the Boy Scouts began collecting soon after their founding in 1910. The files contain details about proven molesters, but also unsubstantiated allegations. The files released Thursday were collected between 1959 and 1985, with a handful of others from later years. Some

had been released previously, but others were made public for the first time. At a news conference, Portland attorney Kelly Clark criticized the Boy Scouts for their continuing legal battles to keep the full collection of files secret. “You do not keep secrets hidden about dangers to children,” said Clark, who in 2010 won a landmark lawsuit against the Boy Scouts

on behalf of a plaintiff who was molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the 1980s. In a statement on Thursday, Scouts spokesman Deron Smith said, “There is nothing more important than the safety of our Scouts.” Smith said there have been times when Scouts’ responses to sex abuse allegations were “plainly insufficient, inappropriate, or wrong.” The Associated Press

The 26-year-old HBO phenom suggested she and her celebrity friends dress up as Bernardo, Karla Homolka and one of their victims for Halloween. She said in a tweet to fellow comics Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak: “You guys go as killer Canadian couple Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka. I’ll be her sister they murdered.” Fans complained online and even the lawyer for Bernardo’s victims weighed in when contacted by a Toronto reporter, saying Dunham “crossed that line.” Dunham is now apologizing, saying in a followup tweet: “Obviously didn’t Fame Daddy

Catholic scandal

ITV duped by sperm bank hoax

Priest accused of stealing church money

A celebrity sperm bank? Maybe not yet. A British television network says it was duped by an actor pretending to be the chief of celebrity paternity service Fame Daddy. ITV’s This Morning program carried an interview Wednesday with a man identified as Dan Richards. He said his company would match women with famous and affluent sperm donors. On Thursday the network said it had been misled. Several newspapers also ran stories about Fame Daddy, whose slick website claims a roster of donors, including an Olympic gold medallist and a Formula One driver.

Police in Croatia say they’ve arrested a Catholic priest who allegedly made off with more than $1 million euros of church money. Police said Thursday they launched a criminal probe against priest Sime Nimac after the Church accused him of illegally selling church land for $1.3 million and taking the sale money. They said Nimac was arrested on Wednesday in the capital of Zagreb. The case has drawn much public attention in Croatia. Local media have reported that Nimac also ran off with a married woman who had allegedly helped him draw the money from the bank. Jutarnji List newspaper said Nimac denied the allegations against him in a phone interview.

Some restaurants asking diners to cut the chatter Taking on the digital crowd. Owners split over the use of cellphones in their restaurants

The digital divide is wider than ever between diners who talk, tweet and snap pictures mid-meal and those who wish they’d just shut up, shut down and be present. Caught at the centre of the discord are restaurant owners and chefs, who must walk the careful line of good customer service for both those who dine under the influence of smartphones, and those who won’t. But as the devices have morphed into an unrelenting appendage for texting, photography and games, more restaurateurs are challenged to keep the peace. Owners who once relied mostly on “no cellphones, please” signs, increasingly are experimenting with everything from penalties for using phones, discounts for not and outright bans on photography.

“There’s no place to get away from the chatter,” said Julie Liberty of Miami, who started the Facebook page Ban Cell Phones From Restaurants earlier this year. “Everything has a soundtrack, including when you go into the ladies room. That’s just not right.” Some restaurateurs go with the digital flow. Sarabeth Levine, of New York City-based Sarabeth’s, said she’s perfectly fine with people chatting, playing games or even taking pictures. It’s free advertising, after all. “I’m happy to have our customers,” Levine said. “They come, they tweet, they Facebook, they bring their children. It’s high energy to begin with. I mean, people are noisy even in the way they speak today.” Others take a middle ground, like the high-end Washington, D.C., restaurant Rogue 24, where hostesses politely tell guests that if they do take pictures, please do so without a distracting flash. “I mean you can’t fight it,” said owner R. J. Cooper. “Why fight a losing battle?” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Colombia

Peace talks in Oslo mark the first in 10 years Colombia’s first peace talks in a decade with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, were inaugurated half a world away on Thursday with a demonstration of just how differently the two sides view the nearly half century-old conflict. The Oslo talks were brief, symbolic, largely perfunctory and held at a secret venue. They lasted seven hours and were followed by word that substantive talks will begin Nov. 15 in the Cuban capital of Havana and will first tackle “comprehensive agrarian development.” The government’s lead negotiator, Humberto de la Calle, sought to set a businesslike, cordial tone in brief remarks at a joint news conference. Colombia is a nation of deep social inequalities and rampant human rights violations. It leads the world in union leader killings and has hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people.

Mars rover

Martian soil has NASA wondering NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has dug up a mini-mystery for scientists — an odd white fleck that sticks out like a beacon in the reddish soil. It looks out of place, but scientists said Thursday that it’s probably just a different hued bit of Martian soil. Curiosity will use its camera and instruments to try to learn more about what it is. It is only one millimetre in size and was spotted after the rover used its mechanical scoop to dig up some dust. THE Associated press

Fear not mama, we’re just trying to help Baby elephant rescue. Kenyan national park video goes viral — with good reason How do you pull a baby elephant out of a deep, muddy hole? A rope and a Land Rover. Then the payoff: A frantic baby elephant sprint to mom. A heartwarming video of the rescue of a baby elephant in a Kenyan national park that lies in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro gained a mass of viewers on Thursday. The video shows the rescuers’ potentially dangerous faceoff with the mother elephant and their struggle to get her calf out of a 1.5-metre hole. Vicki Fishlock of the Amboseli Trust for Elephants faced down the mother with her Land Rover, and made a highpitched aye-aye-aye call to drive the mother off. Thirty muddy minutes later, after two men struggle to get a rope around the eight-month-old calf, Fishlock put her SUV in reverse and pulled the animal out. “Relief! Rescues where

family members are around are stressful, and I’m always happy when everyone is safely back in the cars.” Fishlock said. The hole, a man-made well with three metres of water in it dug by the Masai tribesmen, underscores the increasing problem of human-animal conflict. The baby elephant was too small to crawl out on its own and would have died without the help of rescuers. If the elephant dies, it ruins the well, angering the Masai who live nearby.

The uplifting conclusion to the rescue video shows the baby sprinting to reunite with its family. Despite the confrontation Fishlock thinks Zombe understood in the end that humans were only trying to help. The Associated Press

Obama was potential target in foiled terror plot: Source Terror sting. Undercover agent posing as jihadist intervenes with FBI team after 21-year-old exposes plan to blow up the Federal Reserve A Bangladeshi man snared in an FBI terror sting considered targeting U.S. President Barack Obama before settling on a car-bomb attack on the Federal Reserve in New York City, a law-enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and talked to the AP on condition of anonymity, stressed that the suspect never got beyond the discussion stage.

Giant elk relocated away from hunters Rancher feared amorous nature. Fear of hunters and close relationship with cow drives giant elk away from B.C. ranch Somewhere east of this B.C. community wanders an enormous bull elk, stripped of its crown of six-point antlers and a misplaced attraction for one of Greg Messner’s cows. The elk, a loner that had been turning up at the century-old 100 Mile Ranch to check out Messner’s herd for three years, was relocated earlier this month for its own

safety and for the probity of the cow. This year, the beast decided to stay a while and ended up mingling in the herd for about two months during its rutting season. One of Messner’s cows was also in heat and the pair became a freakish but constant spectacle. “If you were there watching, it would be an X-rated movie. Several times a day,” Messner said through a chuckle. “He was pretty aggressive. He’d put his head down with his great big antlers and poke the little calves and push them away and send them for a little ride once in a while and flick them around.”

Quoted

“He had a huge rack, but he was too wellendowed by chromosomes.” Greg Messner, ranch owner

Messner estimated the elk at about six feet tall and four feet wide and weighing about half a tonne. The ranch is bordered by the highway and cars were stopping as passengers tried to get a look at the amorous ungulate, which from time to time would hop from one side of the pasture fence to the other. Messner said the final

straw was when hunters turned up, the lure of a sixpoint rack potentially dangerously enticing. “Trucks were pulling over and people were watching this poor elk through the scope of their gun and people were doing U-turns on the highway. It was becoming a real dangerous situation.” Messner called in the conservation officer. He, the officer and two RCMP officers sedated the elk and removed its antlers to make it less appealing to hunters and less of a threat to the cows should it decide to return. The elk was then loaded into a truck and taken about 20 kilometres out of town, towards the mountains. THE CANADIAN PRESS

U.S. court strikes down marriage law Gay rights. Federal court calls the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional Saying the gay population has “suffered a history of discrimination,� a divided federal appeals court in Manhattan ruled Thursday that a federal law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman was unconstitutional, adding fuel to an issue expected to reach the U.S. Supreme Court soon. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals seemed interested in adding its voice to several other rulings already at the high court’s doorstep by issuing its 2-to-1 decision only three weeks after hearing arguments on a lower-court judge’s findings that the 1996 law was unconstitutional. In a majority opinion written by Judge Dennis Jacobs, the 2nd Circuit, like a federal appeals court in Boston before

it, found no reason the Defense of Marriage Act could be used to deny benefits to married gay couples. It supported a lowercourt ruling after a woman, Edith Windsor, sued the government in 2010, saying the law required her to pay $363,053 in

federal estate tax after her partner of 44 years died. The 2nd Circuit said the law’s “classification of same-sex spouses was not substantially related to an important government interest� and thus violated the equal-protection clause

of the Constitution. Judge Chester J. Straub dissented, saying that if the government was to change its understanding of marriage, “I believe it is for the American people to do so.� The Associated Press

Britain looking for spy kids Apprentice 007s. British program open to bright 18-year-olds who will undergo technical training and work placements How’s this for a job title — secret agent’s apprentice. The British government is recruiting teenage apprentice spies and codebreakers without university degrees in a bid to deepen the talent pool of its intelligence services for the era of cyberterorrism and cyberwarfare. Foreign Secretary William Hague announced the program Thursday in a speech at Bletchley Park, Britain’s Second World War code-breaking headquarters. “Young people are the key to our country’s future success, just as they were during the war,” Hague said. “It will be the young innovators of this generation who will help keep our country safe in years to come against threats which are every bit as serious as some of those confronted in the Second World

War.” The Foreign Office said the apprenticeship program aims to find up to 100 new recruits for GCHQ — Britain’s electronic surveillance agency — and the MI5 and MI6 and intelligence services. The idea is to expand recruitment of spies beyond the traditional method of a discreet “tap on the shoulder” at university. The program will be open to bright 18-year-olds with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and even computer gaming. They will undergo a two-year course of university classes, technical training and work placements before starting full-time jobs. High-school students will also be invited to take part in a “national cipher challenge” competition intended to inspire pupils to consider careers in mathematics and cybersecurity. The Foreign Office said the goal was to “harness the expertise of its young people, who have grown up with a world of social media, global connectivity and interactive gaming, to make sure we can tackle the threats and challenges of the 21st century.’’ The Associated Press

Ontario judge faces discipline for impatience Poor judgment. Thirty-three charges thrown out after prosecutor was late

Punishment

If found guilty, he could face a variety of penalties: • Given a warning

An Ontario judge who threw out several court cases because he got tired of waiting for a prosecutor to show up has been ordered to appear before a disciplinary panel. The Ontario Judicial Council says the hearing scheduled for Nov. 26 will address three complaints filed against Justice Howard Chisvin for judicial misconduct. On July 21, 2011, Chisvin dismissed at least 33 criminal charges against 10 people in a Newmarket court north of Toronto, who were up before him in court to enter pleas or be sentenced. Chisvin made the call after proceedings resumed following a 20-minute break, finding that the Crown attorney was absent. He sent word to the prosecutor that if he did not show up within a minute, all remaining

cases waiting to be heard that day would be dismissed. When the Crown did not arrive two minutes later, the trial judge threw out all the cases for want of prosecution. After eight minutes, the lawyer returned, apologized and explained that he was late because he was reading a presentencing report. Last March, a three-justice panel with the Ontario Court of Appeal called Chisvin’s actions “illegal” and “an abuse of judicial authority.” The panel also said Chisvin had no power to make the order.

Britain’s Court of Appeal has affirmed a lower-court ruling that Samsung’s Galaxy tablet computer is “not as cool” as Apple’s iPad and therefore doesn’t infringe Apple’s rights. The issue in the case was whether Samsung infringed on the design that Apple registered in 2004. The lower court in July had declared Samsung’s Galaxy computers “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.” In their ruling Thursday, all three justices who heard the appeal ordered Apple to publicize the court rulings to “dispel commercial uncertainty,” and make sure consumers are not biased against Samsung.

Publishing. Venerable news mag is switching to digital format; staff cuts are expected Newsweek will end its print publication after 80 years and shift to an all-digital format in early 2013. Its last U.S. print edition will be its Dec. 31 issue. The paper version of Newsweek is the latest casualty of a changing world where readers get more of their information from websites, tablets and smartphones. It’s also an environment in which advertisers are looking for less expensive alternatives online. Newsweeklies have been in an especially tough spot at a time when people don’t want to wait a week to read commentary and news digests of big stories, given a flood of instant content available online. The announcement of the

change was made Thursday by Tina Brown, editor-in-chief and founder of The Newsweek Daily Beast Co., and Baba Shetty, its CEO. Job cuts are expected. “In our judgment, we have reached a tipping point at which we can most efficiently and effectively reach our readers in all-digital format,” Brown

and Shetty said on The Daily Beast website. Newsweek’s decision does not come as a surprise. Barry Diller, the head of the company that owns Newsweek, announced in July that the publication was examining its future as a weekly print magazine. The Associated Press

Chinese wind-farm firm accuses White House of discrimination The Chinese company suing President Barack Obama for blocking its planned windfarm projects in Oregon accused the U.S. leader and his government of discrimination Thursday and warned that the case would deter Chinese investment in the United States.

space jump is pretty dope Worried that you’ve missed the week’s big news and you’re Paul Sullivan feeling inadequate around the metronews.ca water cooler? Fear not! You’ve come to the right place: The Metro List, where the news lives. Felix Baumgartner. I double-dog dare ya to climb 38 kilometres in a balloon, open the hatch and then jump out. No problem, says the Austrian daredevil, who broke the sound barrier while he was at it. Then he opened his parachute and hit the ground walking. Baumgartner says his daredevil days are done, but wasn’t it another Austrian guy who said, “I’ll be back”? On the other hand. Lance Armstrong won’t work in this town — or any other — again. His main sponsor, Nike, abandoned him after the U.S. AntiDoping Agency released testimony from 11 of his former teammates, who claimed they helped him ride to seven tainted Tour de France victories. But Nike still endorses Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant, a dog killer and a man who was once accused of rape, respectively. Oh well, at least they didn’t take banned substances to give themselves an unfair advantage ... right? The saddest story. Teenager Amanda Todd went looking for love in all the wrong places, i.e. the Internet, and was hounded by the fallout until she killed herself. Before she did, she recorded a haunting video and released it on … the Internet, possibly hoping for some kind of cyber-vindication. You’d like to think her tormentors learned their lesson, but some were still online bullying her memory this week. There’s enough bitter irony in this one story to last a lifetime. Hot enough for you? By you, I mean climatechange denier, you. September was the hottest ever. In the world. If that’s not enough, it was the 331st straight month with above-average temperatures. Anyone who continues to think this global-warming stuff is a hoax reminds me of that lobster sitting in a nice warm bath, and he’s starting to turn pink. Rock ’em sock ’em NHL labour negotiations. The NHL offers to share revenue 50-50 with the players, but the boys are still young enough to be able to read the fine print on the offer, so this thing ain’t settled yet. But at least they’re getting down to it. Timing is interesting. For most of the players, this is their first week without a paycheque. Whoa, dude. Then there’s this elk. This is not a joke. We repeat, this is not a joke. An elk has spent the last three years mooning (moo-ing?) over a herd of cows in the B.C. Interior. This year, well, he leapt the fence. Conservation officers caught him, tranquilized him and — the final indignity — sawed off his six-point antlers (safety measure), then let him go, far from the madding cows.

Photographer’s viewpoint

Canadian earns global recognition

“The penguins definitely fed off my energy. But I was lucky as I was almost killed by a deadly leopard seal the previous day!”

A photo titled BubbleJetting Emperors by Canadian photographer Paul Nicklen has won the globally-acclaimed Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. This image of the chaotic underwater world of emperor penguins at the edge of the Ross Sea, in Antarctica, beat more than 48,000 entries from 98 countries to claim the prize. Metro

Bird vs. airplane captures prize

For the image, Nicklen stayed motionless, waiting for the penguins. Suddenly the birds blasted up from the depths and, with frozen fingers, Paul captured this incredible image. “It was a fantastic sight,” Nicklen said. “Hundreds launched themselves out of the water and onto the ice above me. It was a moment that I felt incredibly fortunate to witness and one I’ll never forget.”

Teenage amateur photographer Owen Hearn (U.K.) won the overall award for under-17s with his image of a red kite bird or prey and an airplane captured on his grandparents’ farm. “With the bird and plane, you can see the connection between nature and humans,” Hearn told Metro. “The life of these birds is decided by how far we develop and encroach into their environment.” Metro

Ginger Snaps (from 2000) is a teenage female coming-of-age story couched in werewolf lore. Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

TORSTAR ARCHIVE

Hair-raising films for the Halloween season

Frightful fare. The Reel Guys talk about the films that give them the creeps Richard: Mark, I’m a fan of old school horror. Not Freddy and Jason, or even b-movies like The Astounding She-Monster, but the kind of thing that gave my grandmother nightmares, Dracula, Frankenstein and the Mummy. I love the Universal creature features, so the new one-stop-shopping Classic Monsters Collection Blu Ray has enough to keep me busy until Halloween. Eight monsters! Nine movies! Twelve hours of extras! What keeps you up at night? Mark: My mortgage, Richard. As far as scary movies go, I have to confess I’m one tough cookie — it’s pretty

hard to scare me. If there’s just a tiny note of humour, I can’t take the flick seriously. And I don’t believe in monsters, vampires, or ghosts. But what does scare me is the horror of people behaving very, very badly — anything to do with psychopaths gives me the creepy-crawlies. I’m thinking of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, In the Light of the Moon (the Ed Gein biopic), Monster (Aileen Wuornos) or the long list of fictional serial killer movies — Se7en, American Psycho, Silence of the Lambs. Quite an impressive sub-genre when you think about it. RC: In Cold Blood always freaks me out. It’s not a horror film in the traditional sense, but because it’s a true story of a senseless murder it sends shivers down my spine… and elsewhere. I usually stick to monster

movies, because I’m petty sure a werewolf isn’t going to attack me on the walk home. Two werewolf faves are Cure of the Werewolf with Oliver Reed and Ginger Snaps, which takes a bite out of the usual lycanthrope myth, spinning it as a teenage girl coming-of-age story. Are there any fictional creatures that get to you? MB: Well I wouldn’t want to meet Leatherface in a dark alley; in fact, I wouldn’t want to meet him at the Four Seasons for smart drinks either. But one kind of horror film that does creep me out is the “home invasion” movie. I’m thinking of Funny Games (both European and U.S. versions), The Strangers, even the paint-by-numbers Nic Cage vehicle Trespass gets under my skin. Because this stuff actually happens, y’know?

Boo

Anyone looking to have the hairs on the back of their necks raised this month won’t have trouble finding something to do the trick. Silent Hill: Revelation, Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 (is it four times scarier than the first one?) are all in theatres, but the Reel Guys have some other tinglers you may not have considered.

RC: Yeah, perhaps I’m more just escapist in my taste of creepy movies. I’m not drawn to true horrific crime unless the criminal is the Creature from the Black Lagoon. MB: Now that’s one home invasion I’d like to see. But I wouldn’t want to clean up afterwards.

Alex Cross Director. Rob Cohen Stars. Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox, Rachel Nichols

••••• Tyler Perry is the new Alex Cross, stepping into the role Morgan Freeman made famous in Kiss the Girls. In this new thriller the detective underestimates a serial killer (a skeletal Matthew Fox) and that rare mistake in judgment ends up changing his life. The problems here are many, starting with a TV movie-ready script. The only unused cliché is, “Just the facts, ma’am,” but, I’m sure screenwriters are already crafting that line into Alex Cross 2: My Name’s Not Madea. richard crouse

The fourth installment in the franchise offers viewers the same predictable thrills and a weak storyline that is all too familiar.

Rumours about his demise from shooting himself in the head onstage, lighting himself on fire and dying in prison trumped recognition of talented American singer/ songwriter Rodriguez.

Three years later, Frédéric Bourdin, a 23-yearold French man, managed to convince U.S. officials and Nicholas’s family that he was the missing teen. Director Bart Layton uses re-enactments, intimate interviews and archival footage to reconstruct this twisted story. Step-by-step, Bourdin recounts his impossible scheme with a sly, self-congratulatory air, and Nicholas’s defeated family members relive every emotion.

The question of where we go when we die — if we’ve been bad — is parsed in Kevin Miller’s intriguing but ultimately frustrating Hellbound? By interviewing a wide range of theologians reaping disparate positions, Miller creates an impression of balance, but the film proceeds from a basic assumption of belief on behalf of the viewer — a position that may limit its appeal. It also doesn’t help that Miller uses 9/11 and Ground Zero as a shortcut to the emotions this otherwise talky and at times downright abstract documentary can’t quite access. Adam nayman

Hugo Weaving. Agent Smith rose to the challenge of many roles

metronews.ca WEEKEND, October 19-21, 2012

Susan Sarandon joins the Cloud Atlas circus Part of something big. Actress was thrilled to join up with the Wachowskis and help them create their epic vision Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

One of Hugo Weaving’s many Cloud Atlas characters is an assassin. handout

Cloud Atlas, the new movie co-directed by Matrix filmmakers the Wachowski Siblings and Tom “Run, Lola, Run” Tykwer, is a sprawling story about the interconnectedness of humankind. To illustrate how we are linked the directors took the unique tactic of assigning multiple roles to the entire cast, including stars Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. Hugo Weaving, the Australian actor of Matrix Trilogy Agent Smith fame, for instance, plays everything from a hired-gun assassin to an evil spirit to a female nurse (which he based on Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and more. “Most of my characters were agents of control, enforcement or attempting to limit imagination or incarcerate people or stop certain stories from getting out into the world or just plain going out and killing people,” he says, “and then there’s Georgie. He actually doesn’t exist as an embodied figure. He’s literally a devil, so he’s a fear.” Playing a range of charac-

ters spanning centuries and even gender divides didn’t faze the veteran actor. “I was completely thrilled at embracing the idea of it,” he says. “When they told me the idea originally, ‘We want you to be one character in each storyline and at this stage we’re calling him the antagonist,’ it was a big thrill. If an idea grabs you in the gut, it is something you should definitely do.” Gut feeling aside, juggling six roles presented challenges during the shoot. “Right from the go the stories weren’t going to be shot in the same block,” he says. “We would do elements of certain stories in certain locations. If most of a particular story took place on one set of course you would tend to shoot most of that story before moving on to the other,” he says, “but there was one time I had five characters in a week.” The unusual approach, he says, gives the film “a sense of playfulness that it wouldn’t otherwise have.” richard crouse, metro

From playing a former 1960s radical on the run in the Company You Keep to guest-starring as a former middle school teacher out of jail and still romancing a former student in 30 Rock, Susan Sarandon likes to keep things interesting. So naturally she was eager to join the company of Cloud Atlas, playing four different characters for directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. The experience was, as Sarandon puts it, “like joining the circus.” What was the draw for you to take on all of these roles? I just love the Wachowskis, and I had met Tom before when I was doing Speed Racer. Actually, they gave me the book as a parting gift at that time and I loved the book, and I wasn’t thinking about it being made into a movie, but when they got it all together years later and said, “We miss you, come spend some time with us and play in Berlin,” even without knowing what they wanted me to do I knew that it was something that I could bear to talk about for days on end at junkets and that it would be a really interesting experience.

Susan Sarandon stars in Cloud Atlas, which opens next Friday. torstar archive

How much does being able to bear talking about something for days on end normally factor into your decision? It’s major, because seriously you give so much energy. If it’s not something that excites you for some reason, you feel like a hooker. I mean, you can’t do it for the money. It has to be something that either has a concept or a character that you’ve not done before. It can be just fun. You never know how something’s going to turn out, so you can’t ever make a decision based on what you think will be successful and what won’t.

What about this one? This one was like joining a repertory company, and the spirit of the people that would take that kind of a chance, that would do little parts and big parts and bounce all over the place and put their egos aside was a very unusual, unusual camp to belong to. It was like joining the circus. It was very exhilarating for everybody, I think, even the people who worked much harder than I worked, because you knew you were a part of something that was very special, and everybody was game. When you work with Lana and Andy,

they’re always very, very wellprepared, but this one, because it was so complicated, it really felt like you were taking off and going into outer space or something, in terms of what it was attempting. There was a certain excitement at being asked to be part of it that I just wanted. Even just historically, I thought it was a really groundbreaking attempt. Are you going to be popping up on the last season of 30 Rock? Not so far as I know, no. As far as I know, there’s no plans for that.

DC wins Superman copyright battle Rights retained. Company can continue to use caped hero’s image after fight with co-creator’s heirs

The cover of Superman No. 1, which was released in 1938. dc comics/the associated press

DC Comics will retain its rights to Superman after a judge ruled Wednesday that the heirs of one of

the superhero’s co-creators signed away their ability to reclaim copyrights to the Man of Steel roughly 20 years ago. The ruling means that DC Comics and its owner Warner Bros. will retain all rights to continue using the character in books, films, television and other mediums, including a reboot of the film planned for next year.

DC Comics sued the heirs of artist Joe Shuster in 2010, seeking a ruling that they lost their ability to try to reclaim the superhero’s copyrights in 1992. U.S. District Court Judge Otis Wright II agreed, stating that Shuster’s sister and brother relinquished any chance to reclaim Superman copyrights in exchange for annual pension payments from DC Comics.

Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel created Superman, who made his comic book debut in 1938 in Action Comics (hash)1. Both men battled for increased compensation for the superhero throughout their lives and Siegel’s heirs have also fought DC for a stake in copyrights to Superman. Shuster’s heirs had argued that the copyright

agreements could be terminated under provisions that allowed creators of works made before 1978 a mechanism to reclaim their rights. Wright ruled that the decision by Shuster’s sister to accept higher annual payments created a new agreement and the pre-1978 rights no longer applied. The Associated Press

Celebrating his 50th birthday, James Bond has been learning some new tricks — but 3D isn’t one of them. Producers of the spy franchise say they have no interest in making a Bond film in 3D. The upcoming Skyfall is the first Bond film to be released since Avatar made 3D a common and often lucrative practice for blockbusters. “3D is fantastic for the right material, but we’re not sure Bond is the right way to go,” said Skyfall producer Barbara Broccoli in a recent interview. “With our movies, there’s a lot of challenges to 3D, particularly when you’ve got a lot of action and a lot of quick cutting.” Broccoli and her halfbrother Michael G. Wilson have shepherded the last seven Bond films, preserving the franchise as a family business. Skyfall, which premieres next week in the U.K. and opens Nov. 9 in the U.S., follows 2008’s Quantum of Solace — released a year before James Cameron’s 3D epic. “It has to be right for our story,” said Broccoli. “Unless you can do something as well as (Avatar), it’s probably not worth looking at.” Wilson said there has been interest in converting some of the old Bond films into 3D, which he called “more of a novelty.” Shooting in 3D, which requires larger cameras, can be cumbersome, and quick action shots can be awkward because viewers’ eyes don’t adjust rapidly enough.

Daniel Craig is signed for at least two more Bond films, neither of which are planned to be shot in 3D. getty images

But 3D, for which higher ticket prices are charged, can also bring in more box office. Bond films, more classical in their 2D, go for spectacle instead with IMAX. Skyfall will be released a day early, Nov. 8, in North America on IMAX screens. Still, Broccoli left the door open for things to change. Daniel Craig is signed for at least two more Bond films, which will be the 24th and 25th in the franchise. Neither is currently being planned in 3D. “Who knows?” she said. “We’ll see if things change in the future.” the associated press

The Wizard of Oz (1939) A great film any way you slice it! The songs are great for kids and the characters really capture the imagination of young and old alike. An excellent performance by everyone, but especially Toto (my favourite). This is on the list too by the way, the classic E.T. . all photos handout

My daughters love this film (a Roald Dahl story directed by Danny DeVito) and we watch it at least once a week.

Mary Poppins (1964) Despite some very bad British accenting, Dick Van Dyke still can’t fail next to Julie Andrews and some wonderful supporting actors in this classic.

Where are they now? The babes from hit ’90s show Baywatch made male viewers drool as they patrolled their Los Angeles beach and plucked drowning people from the Pacific Ocean. But what happened to them all after the show was beached? mike dojc

scene@metronews.ca

A decade after the sun set on last-gasp spinoff Baywatch Hawaii, the thin on storyline yet beautifully shot series famous for slow motion runs and glistening beach bodies is ripe for revival. Word is Robert Ben Garant, co-creator of Reno 911 and the writer of Night at The Museum has been tapped to direct the long awaited big screen adaptation. So while the hype balloons, we check in on C.J. and Summer and all of the other flotation device carrying babes to see what they’ve been up to since doffing their iconic red suits.

The most famous of them all as she is today. all photos cetty

Pamela Anderson Pammy didn’t skip a beat after Baywatch was beached. The extrachesty actress landed the titular role on the sexy romp VIP, short for Vallery Irons Protection which enjoyed a solid four season run. Next the Ladysmith, British-Columbia-born sweetheart parlayed her pretend lifeguarding and bodyguard management gigs into the animated Stripperella (stripper by night…superhero later at night) and Stacked where she played a ditzy bookstore clerk. The quintessential blonde bombshell, now 45, recently padded her already ample Playboy CV, posing for the January 2011 issue, her record 11th cover. A bighearted babe, Pamela donated her modeling fee to charity.

Alexandra Paul

Nicole Eggert

Sporty Paul, who portrayed straight-laced Lieutenant Stephanie Holden, stood out for her short-haired do and flutter board flat torso. After a seven-year run her character was killed off, done in by the mast of sailboat that is hit by lightning and crushes her—David Hasselhoff manages to reach her but the Hoff is too late and she passes away in his arms. A real life hardcore swimmer, Paul has competed in some serious island-toisland distance events. She swam the 10-mile Lanai to Maui channel swim in 2006 and the 11 mile Denaru to Beachcomber stroke-fest in 2009. An eco-conscious gal, Paul is featured in the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car and wrote and directed a couple of PBS docs: Jam Packed about the population crisis, and The Cost of Cool-Finding Happiness in a Materialistic World.

As certifiably sexy blondie Summer Quinn, Eggert fulfilled many a dude’s hot for puma (junior cougar) fantasy when she eventually hooked up with Hasselhoff’s son Hobie who is eight years her junior. After having her fill of fun in the warm California sun after a 45-episode stint, Eggert appeared in the buff on Sugar Ray’s Lemonade and Brownies album. In 1996 Eggert was involved in a near fatal snowmobile accident. She shattered her spine, breaking it in three places, but thankfully she made a full recovery. While hardly overweight, Eggert was last seen in the 2010 edition of Celebrity Fit Club alongside Bobby Brown, Shar Jackson and Kevin Federline. Eggert still flexes her acting chops on occasion, though you probably didn’t catch her in 2008’s A Christmas Proposal or 2010’s Turbulent Skies about a self-flying airplane that goes haywire.

Carmen Electra Carmen caught the tail end of Baywatch mania, electrifying the last 22 episodes as Lani McKenzie. Post Baywatch this buxom vixen remained in the spotlight in part due to high profile relationships with Dennis Rodman and later Dave Navvaro. She also became a go-to actress in spoofs with turns in Scary Movie (2000), Date Movie (2006), Epic Movie (2007), Disaster Movie (2008) and Meet the Spartans (2008). The curvaceous cutie also did a two-year stint as a dancer with the Pussycat Dolls before the burlesque troupe transformed into a musical sextet with frisky “Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” lyrics. Electra, 40, and still smokin’, was engaged (since called off) to Filter guitarist Rob Patterson and can be see writhing around raunchily with other babes in their 2010 video New Love.

Yasmine Bleeth This brunette minx gave Pammy a run for her money in the most ogled Baywatch beauty sweepstakes for a couple of years. After rescuing her last drowning victim in 1997, Bleeth nabbed a recurring role on Nash Bridges as an internal affairs investigator out to figuratively nail Don Johnson. Of course they eventually succumb to the mounting sexual tension and become lovers. Next up Bleeth is cast in the shortlived Erin Spelling nighttime soap Titans set on Waikiki beach. Bleeth steams up the big screen in Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s BASEketball but critics went ‘tsk tsk’ and she received a Worst Actress Golden Raspberry nomination. Her career hit a major snag in 2001 when she was pinched for cocaine possession. While in rehab at the Promises clinic she met her husband strip-club owner Paul Cerrito. Her last screen role was 2003’s Maximum Surge.

Zak Bagans: On the trail with a ghost hunter Ghost Adventures. Show airs Fridays and Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/ PT on Travel+Escape MEREDITH ENGEL

Metro World News in New York

When Zak Bagans saw his first ghost — a woman at the foot of his bed in Detroit — he knew he was part of a rare breed of people. But he was disappointed to see how lightly people were taking his experience. “I was really getting aggravated telling this story to people,” the host of Ghost Adventures on Travel+Escape says. “I’d tell the story and then we’d go eat a sandwich and that’s it. I experienced something that is legit. And that put me on this quest and it changed everything about me after that.” The paranormal expert now seeks out spirits for a living, and he doesn’t listen to the naysayers around him. “The evidence that we are capturing now is not just flickering lights and door knocks,” he says. “I want to welcome people that don’t believe and talk with them and show them the steps and have them accompany me on investigations.” Bagans says the ghosts that still linger on earth do so for a reason. “[They] have something to say,” he says. “There’s someThe basic tools

If you’re one of the “nine out of 10” who Bagans predicts has experienced some supernatural activity in your home, don’t panic, he advises. “Just let it be, because I think that if you try and communicate with them, like what I do, then once they realize — like in the movie the place.

Canadians get first look at Happy Endings The new series Hunted stars Australian native Melissa George (a Golden Globe nominee for In Treatment) as a spy for an elite private intelligence firm that she suspects may have tried to kill her. She struggles to figure out who she can trust and what the company’s intentions are. The series, which premieres Friday, was created by Frank Spotnitz, who wrote and produced The X Files. (HBO Canada, The Movie Network) While the truth remains hidden for the character in Hunted, that’s not the case over at CBC News: the fifth estate. Entitled Whistleblowers: Moment of Truth, Friday’s episode sees memorable informants discussing the direction their lives took after their revelations became public. (CBC) Bruno Mars does double duty as the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Chances are he’ll perform his percussion-heavy new single, Locked Out of Heaven, from his upcoming album, Unorthodox Jukebox. (Global, NBC) Speaking of Mars, he’s set to perform in December’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show alongside Justin Bieber, who is featured in a concert special Saturday. Justin Bieber: London

Live finds the Stratford, Ont., pop sensation giving an intimate performance at London’s Under the Bridge music venue. (Super Channel) Films on the Saturday schedule include the romantic heartbreaker The Time Traveler’s Wife, starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, and the fertility comedy The Switch, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman (W Network). Other options include the supernatural comedy classic Ghostbusters (Teletoon), and Quentin Tarantino’s Second World War drama Inglourious Basterds (Peachtree TV). Canadians will get to catch the season 3 premiere of the buddy comedy series Happy Endings before viewers south of the border on Sunday. The debut, which airs in the U.S. on Tuesday, sees Alex and Dave taking a second stab at a relationship after she dumped him at the altar. Things are no different for pitiful Penny, though, a bad-luck magnet who winds up in a full-body cast after an accident. Max tries to take care of her but his efforts become more hindrance than help when he lusts after her physical therapist. (Citytv) And if the promotional photos for Sunday’s episode of Revenge are any indication, someone will be injured — or perhaps worse. The shots show several characters, including Emily and Jack, looking shocked and saddened in a hospital. (Citytv, ABC) the Canadian press

of these lying around? You can use it to talk to ghosts. Once you identify some inexplicable energy, record yourself talking to the potential spirit and play it back on a speaker. “These microphones will pick up sounds that we can’t hear,” Bagans says. “They’ll pick up subfrequencies. And when spirits speak they can speak within these subfrequencies, in the white noise that’s generated by the recorders.”

Bruce Springsteen has endorsed Barack Obama for president. getty images

After vowing not to participate in this year’s presidential election, Bruce Springsteen is supporting Barack Obama again, saying he believes Obama is the best person to lead America. Springsteen posted a message on his website Wednesday night endorsing President Obama’s re-election, saying he’d been “getting asked a lot about where I stand.” The rock star will make his debut on the 2012 campaign

trail Thursday at events in Iowa with former President Bill Clinton. He also backed Obama in 2008. Springsteen says he’s behind Obama, who is facing Republican rival Mitt Romney in November, because of the president’s views on the rights of women and homosexuals, ending the war in Iraq and tracking down Osama bin Laden.

listening to while you wrote it. Why do you think it’s important to put your influences out there like that? I don’t know that it is. ... I think it’s honestly born of reading reviews of things that are so far off the mark in terms of what they assume I was thinking or reading or listening to. Sometimes I just get to the point where I’m like, ‘I’m just gonna tell you because it’s gonna come out better for both of us.’ But I never want anything to be that apparent and it’s never something that overt. Like, oh, obviously, I listened to Viva Hate during this per-

iod and my work is a direct extension of that. It’s just sometimes helpful — especially for a band like mine who has from an early point been pigeonholed or summarized in like, two bands. Why did these five songs seem to be a unit unto itself rather than part of a full album? It was pretty similar to when I put out the He Gets Me High EP. It felt like this album was maybe not conceptual in the traditional sense, but I felt like it dealt with something specifically and then it was complete.

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

Jennifer Aniston all photos getty

Katy Perry

Perry’s brother admits Mayer isn’t Katy’s ‘one’

Kutcher tops TV wage stack the word

Dorothy Robinson scene@metronews.ca

Here’s a little perspective to kick off your weekend: Ashton Kutcher is not only having sexual relations with Mila Kunis but he’s also pulling in a whopping $24 million a year. So even though Kutcher is the butt of many jokes, maybe he’s having the last laugh? According to a new article in Forbes, the Two and a Half Men star earned that huge salary courtesy of his star-

ring role on the top-rated sitcom, Two and a Half Men (his tech investments also helped). Following Kutcher were Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano, tied for second place at $18 million thanks to the syndication of House and Everybody Loves Raymond. Next: Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock and Mark Harmon of NCIS in another tie at $15 million a year, followed by Tim Allen, star of Last Man Standing, at $14 million. Sadly, Jon Cryer, who always played second financial fiddle to Charlie Sheen on Men, is still losing out to his more handsome coworker and is only bringing in $13 million. One day the nerds will rise, Cryer, and you will have your due.

Katy Perry may be enjoying her time with John Mayer — this week, at least — but Perry’s brother, David Hudson, doesn’t think the Teenage Dream singer has met “the one” yet. “She deserves a true gentleman, and I don’t think she’s found that,” Hudson says, according to Hollyscoop, adding

that Perry doesn’t “necessarily (need a guy) in the business, just someone that’s really got something impressive.” Of course, just because her brother isn’t happy about her current boyfriend doesn’t mean she’ll take any of his advice. “She shrugs it off because she’s her own person,” Hudson admits.

Aniston praises fiancé for ‘sneakiest’ proposal Jennifer Aniston gives fiancé Justin Theroux high marks for secrecy in the lead-up to his popping the question. “The proposal was one of the sneakiest jobs I’ve ever seen,” Aniston tells People magazine. “I had no idea.” The

actress also has no idea what she’ll be wearing for her big day, but she knows it won’t be anything to experimental. “A bride should look like herself,” Aniston says. “If you try something new, you’ll feel uncomfortable.”

Green also has a 10-yearold son, Kassius, from a previous relationship. An already pregnant Fox told Cosmopolitan magazine in April that she’s “always been maternal” and wants “at least two, probably three kids.”

The spice route

Liquid Assets

Spicy side of your cocktail

This time of the year sees us returning to the foods that we know and love — pies, soups and hot drinks. Bal Arneson of the Food Network’s Spice Goddess, tells us how to remake our favourites.

LIQUID ASSETS

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

DAN CLAPSON Bal Arneson, cookbook author and Food Network Canada personality, is definitely one lady who knows her spices. You can watch her reinventing delicious dishes on her popular show, Spice Goddess, as well as a resident judge on Shaw’s new cooking series, Cooking with Fire. Here’s how Arneson uses Indian spices at home to transform some traditional autumn staples…

Hot Chocolate

Apple Pie

“A pinch of clove will give it a nice, fresh flavour. Clove is so strong, so just a tiny, tiny pinch! And, a pinch of cardamon on top of the whipped cream.”

“When I mix my apples (for the pie), I always add green cardamon seeds. The seeds have a nice floral flavour. Once you try it with the cardamon, you can never go back to the regular apple pie!”

Butternut Squash Soup “Definitely crushed coriander and cumin seeds. Coriander will give it a nice nutty flavour and the cumin will add a warming feeling to (the soup).

LIFE

When you grow up in Nova Scotia, like I did, it’s a given that your first taste of spirits will come from the fountain of rum. Not just any rum, I’m talking black rum. Jet black rum. It’s the kind of tipple that grows hair on your chest and offers you memories to last a lifetime (along with some you wish to forget). Sadly, most everywhere else in Canada rum isn’t held in such high esteem — proving a favourite of Johnny Depp wannabes and those who find a popular cola brand the ultimate cocktail mix. While I’m cool with that, there is a certain “je ne sais quoi” to rum that appeals to the pirate in all of us. That said, a glass of rum’s 21st century persona is less yo-ho-ho and way more spice — which is opening liquor cabinet doors across the country. The Kraken Black Spiced ($27.99 - $32.99) is the epitome of dark rum’s new personality. Inky black, rich and spicy, it drinks as well over ice as it does blended into any rum-based concoction. Plus, packaging fans will love the bottles two-handled grip and the menacing giant squid on the label.

The next generation of grocery store items New and exciting bites. Pizza cones, new ethnic foods, artisanal fare heading to stores Ice cream may soothe cravings for a frosty, sweet treat, but those craving something warm and savoury might soon be munching on cheese and pepperoni in a cone. Vince Pettinicchio, CEO and managing director of Quebecbased Aliments MSU Foods Canada Inc., said the pizza cone was a European fad that started four years ago. His company is the Canadian importer of the product which he sees as “revolutionary in its category.” “You can hold it in your hand, you can walk around with it,” he said during the recent Grocery Innovations Canada conference and trade show in Toronto. The two-day event offered a glimpse into the future of emerging food products Canadian consumers could soon see at the supermarket. Grocery Innovations Canada, John Scott, president and

CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers, said that the growing presence of ethnic foods on store shelves is one that “continues to explode.” Vincent Uy of British-Columbia-based 7000 Island Foods said his company is targeting mainstream Canadian consumers with its Pulo Philippine Cuisine product line. While initially focused on the B.C. and Ontario markets, the company plans for a national distribution of the Canadian-made marinades and cooking sauces with Philippineinspired flavours like coconut adobo and pineapple tamarind, he added. Sandeep Khanna, director of marketing for Weston Bakeries Limited, said the company was inspired to bring Canadian consumers flatbreads with a focus on South Asian, Mediterranean and Persian cooking as it launches its Flat Oven Bakery line. “We believe there is a tremendous opportunity for consumers to actually use these products in their everyday cooking — not just when they feel like cooking Indian food or Greek food...,” Khanna said. Such alternatives could include using barbari flatbread to make bruschetta or margherita pizza, or chapati roti as a wrap for kids’ lunch, he noted. Growing consumer interest in where products are made and an interest in healthier options were also reflected among the homegrown offerings. Long before going trans-fat free was the craze, Kirby and Marcie Punshon of Reginabased Koko Patisserie used all-natural ingredients in their baked goods. The range of artisanal pastries, treats and cakes are sourced from Saskatchewan organic flour milled by a farmer just outside of the city. “Those were just our principles when we started, and now it seems to be the emphasis which is great,” said Kirby, who

Food talk

“Farmers want us to know what’s in it, the food producers that show up at food shows want to talk to you about what’s in their product, and that’s all around culinary communication” Christine Couvelier, food trend expert and culinary consultant

started the business with Marcie out of their home kitchen. “But it’s still on a pure ingredient deck. It still has to be pure butter, it still has to be pure peaches — it can’t be flavourings. It has to be the real stuff.” Koko Patisserie took home honours among the top 10 most innovative products at the conference and trade show, and is expanding beyond its Saskatchewan base with entry into B.C. and Ontario. Food trend expert and culinary consultant Christine Couvelier said there continues to be an emphasis on “culinary communication” — both between the chef and consumer and farmer and consumer. “Farmers want us to know what’s in it, the food producers that show up at food shows want to talk to you about what’s in their product, and that’s all around culinary communication,” said Couvelier, whose Culinary Concierge business helps companies develop new products and marketing strategies. “Consumers know more than they ever have about food and food products and tastes and what they should be like. And they’ve travelled more than they ever have to culinary destinations and they’ve enjoyed the foods. So we need that communication.”

‘In a nutshell, it doesn’t look good’ NHL. Union offers fall flat, taking air out of optimism for full season The NHL labour situation appears grim after an exchange of proposals between the league and the union accomplished little. The NHL Players’ Association rejected an offer from the league that would see revenue split 50-50 between the league and the players. The union countered with three proposals, which league commissioner Gary Bettman called “thoroughly disappointing” on Thursday. “None of the three variations of player share that they gave us even began to approach 50-50, either at all or for some long period of time,” Bettman said. “It’s clear we’re not speaking the same language.” Union executive director Donald Fehr disagreed, saying two of the proposals would see the players take a fixed amount of revenue, which would turn into an approximate 50-50 split over the term of the deal provided league revenues continued to grow. The third approach would be a 50-50 split, as long as the league honoured all existing contracts at full value. The NHLPA showed up to the meeting with a show of force, including star players Sidney Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Jonathan Toews and Eric Staal. Like the leaders of the two sides, the players did not seem optimistic after the afternoon meeting. “We came in here today with those proposals thinking that we could really make some progress, and to hear those words (from Bettman) kind of shuts it down pretty quickly,”

Coach Hart takes fall for Honduras Canada’s humiliating loss in Honduras has cost coach Stephen Hart his job. Canadian Soccer Association president Victor Montagliani said Hart had resigned effective Thursday. Canada needed just a tie or win in San Pedro Sula on Tuesday to advance to the final round of World Cup qualifying. Instead, they were drubbed 8-1 Tuesday in the worst loss by the Canadian men since an 8-0 shellacking in Mexico in 1993. “This game is a beautiful game but at times it can be cruel,” Montagliani said in a conference call on Thursday. “And I think we all know what needed to happen.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sidney Crosby speaks at a press conference after negotiations in Toronto on Thursday. CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS Quoted

“I don’t know what the next step is. I’m obviously very disappointed.” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman

Crosby said. “In a nutshell, it doesn’t look good.” Bettman said the league’s proposal is fair and would allow for an 82-game season to start Nov. 2. But Fehr said the players could sacrifice nearly $1.8 billion in revenue under the league’s proposal. Fehr said concessions made by the players in the last round of bargaining have cost them $3.3 billion over the term of the last agreement. The players currently get 57 per cent of revenues. “This is not a good day,” Fehr said. “It should have been, but it’s not.” Bettman said no new talks are immediately scheduled. He said he is still hopeful the league can have a full season, but time is running out.

Fallout

Crosby more seriously considering Europe There was simply no way for Sidney Crosby to hide his disappointment. Just one week after telling The Canadian Press he was confident a deal could be

struck that would save the NHL season, the Pittsburgh Penguins captain acknowledged Thursday that he was going to start looking closer at what options might be available to play in Europe. “A little harder, yeah,” Crosby said. “I think that’s something that everyone’s got to figure out. You try to figure out where things stand and I don’t think they’re in a great spot right now.”

PGA assumes operations of Canadian Tour After lending strategic and financial support to the Canadian Tour over the last year, the PGA Tour officially put the development golf circuit under its umbrella Thursday and renamed it PGA Tour Canada. The tour will debut in 2013 with at least eight summer tournaments in Canada offering a minimum purse of $150,000. The conversion will begin Nov. 1. THE CANADIAN PRESS

MLB. Tigers cap off ALCS sweep

Check out this week’s most shared photos at metrophotochallenge.ca

Denis A. – ”Botanic Garden Montréal”

Prince Fielder waved his arms frantically, gleefully calling off his teammates before catching the final out. From the moment Fielder signed his massive contract in January, an entire city had been waiting for a moment like this. Max Scherzer capped a stupendous stretch for Detroit’s starting rotation, and the Tigers advanced to the World Series, beating the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the AL championship series. Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta hit two-run homers in a four-run fourth inning against CC Sabathia, who was unable to prevent the Yankees from getting swept in a playoff series for the first time in 32 years. “Yeah, we did it,” Cabrera said. “It’s an unbelievable feeling.... Four more wins, guys. Four more wins.” Scherzer took a no-hit bid into the sixth against a Yankees team that hit .188 in the postseason and .157 in the LCS. New York went quietly in the ninth inning, the last three batters shut down in order. Detroit won its 11th American League pennant and first since 2006. The Tigers have five days off before the World Series starts Wednesday at defending champion St. Louis or 2010 winner San Francisco. Tigers designated hitter Delmon Young was selected MVP of the series. He batted .353 with two homers and six RBIs. the associated press

Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-1 rout Thursday night that gave them a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series. Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina had two RBIs apiece to lead a 12-hit outburst by a team that batted just .198 through the first three games of the series. The defending champion Cardinals can wrap up their second straight trip to the World Series as a wild card with a victory at home Friday night in Game 5. Lance Lynn faces Giants lefty Barry Zito. Lincecum was a bust in his first post-season start since the World Series clincher over Texas in 2010, giving up four runs in 4 2/3 innings. the associated press

Burris back to his old stomping grounds CFL Extra Points

Dan Toth calgary@metronews.ca

Roughriders can’t deny what could have been; Burris looking with longing at Stampeders sideline; No delicate way to discuss fragile Pierce’s future Photos by The Canadian Press/Torstar News Service/Getty Images

Burris to get first-hand look at missed chance

1 3 4 6 5 Tough road ahead for Roughriders

Head coach Corey Chamblin tried putting a positive spin on last week’s loss in Edmonton, where they squandered a shot at hosting a playoff game in November (which would have greatly improved their chances of advancing). Instead, the Green Machine has lost the season series to both Calgary and Edmonton and now faces a tough stretch with games against Montreal (Saturday), Toronto and B.C. to end the season.

It’s strange to think that had QB Henry Burris accepted a demotion this season with the Stamps, he could have been at the controls of Calgary’s offence Friday night in place of injured Drew Tate. Instead, Burris is leading the visiting Hamilton TigerCats against Kevin Glenn, who has been solid as Tate’s replacement.

Argos head coach Scott Milanovich needs to be wary of pushing QB Ricky Ray back into action after missing three games with a knee injury. The Argos are unlikely to catch the firstplace Alouettes with just three games remaining, so why risk losing your most important player before the playoffs?

Only a matter of time for Pierce

First things first for ailing Alouettes

You always want to clinch a playoff spot as early as possible, providing an opportunity for key players to rest before the playoffs. The Alouettes know this only too well. Montreal requires just one win to secure first place in the East, but are without running back Victor Anderson, receiver S.J. Green, and kick returner Trent Guy.

A real Argos head scratcher

Reaching boiling point in B.C.?

Lions GM Wally Buono says he “hates Twitter and Facebook,” and for very good reason. Buono would like to be able to control his players on and off the field, but is helpless when the likes of Lions defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell uses social media to publicize his ignorance as he did this week by making a racial slur.

This is getting hard to watch. Now that fragile QB Buck Pierce has been cleared by team doctors to play, it’s just a matter of time before he becomes seriously injured. Pierce, who missed the last two games with a concussion, has appeared in just five games this year.

Horoscopes

Libra

Aries

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You will get the chance to get rid of something that is holding you back from fulfilling your potential. Take it or you may look back in a few weeks and wish you had been a bit more adventurous.

Taurus

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Someone has let you down and your first reaction will be to do something nasty to them in return. If you get into the revenge business, you could start a feud that never ends.

April 21 - May 21 A rather tense day is possible and, just this once, you may have no option but to confront someone you don’t get along with. Where some issues are concerned, there can be no middle ground. Fight to win.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 The depth of your feelings may be making you uncomfortable but there is no point pretending they do not exist. No matter how hard you try to deny them, they will bounce back even stronger.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 Daydreaming can be a lot of fun but don’t let it keep you from doing what you should be doing. Routine tasks may be boring but they must be done and they must be done well, so get on with it.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You won’t be pleased if someone treats your concerns in a flippant manner but try not to overreact. When all is said and done, there are more important things on which you should be spending your precious time and energy.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Do not be offended if a loved one wants to spend some time alone. They have some serious inner issues to deal with and the only way they can do that is to isolate themselves from outside influences.

JESUS NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION showers hazy

A relationship with Jesus is paramount because a life without Jesus regardless of status will be full of crisis.It is only in Him one can find peace. Jesus needs you now to abide in Him so that He can abide in you, because without Him you can do nothing. If you remain in Jesus and tenaciously hold on to the word of God, be confident to ask Him of anything and He is faithful and just to grant them.

Feb. 20 - March 20 No matter how much others may mock your beliefs, you intend to stick with them. Deep down, your critics know they are the ones who are on the wrong track. That’s why they think you’re so dangerous. The truth hurts. SALLY BROMPTON
