Most health workers not vaccinated: Province Needle point. Health minister says mandatory shots a possibility

ryan tumilty

While flu numbers are spiking in Edmonton, more than half the workers in the city’s health-care centres have not been vaccinated against the virus. Dr. Chris Sikora, Edmonton’s medical officer of health, said Wednesday that, depending on the facility, 20 per cent to no more than 50 per cent of staff have been vaccinated at city clinics. “I wish all staff were getting vaccinated,” he said. “It is a way that they can protect themselves from getting sick, protect their family at home as well as protect the people they care for.” Several jurisdictions have made flu vaccinations mandatory for health-care workers. Health Minister Fred Horne said the low numbers in Edmonton are a concern, and while it would have to

come with extensive consultation, a measure to make the vaccine mandatory is one worth considering. “I think it is a very important issue and I certainly wouldn’t rule that out,” he said. Horne stressed that he would need to talk to healthcare workers about the issue before taking such a step, but it might be time for the government to do that. “We need a dialogue about this, and perhaps that time has come.” Heather Smith, president of the United Nurses of Alberta, said her organization would not welcome the move. “We don’t believe it is something that should be forced upon health-care workers any more than other members of society,” she said. Dr. Alison McGeer, an infectious-disease expert at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, has advocated for mandatory programs. “There is very good evidence that vaccinating health-care workers protects patients from illness and death,” she said.

A group representing many of Alberta’s largest non-profit groups is raising concerns about the Wildrose party’s proposal to fund NHL arenas with a Keno lottery. In a blog post earlier this week, Volunteer Alberta, a group representing provincial charities, said they are worried the Keno game would hurt their bottom line. “Funding is important to the sector and it’s not always easy to come by,” said the group’s interim executive director, Rosanne Tollenaar. Volunteer Alberta is separate from government, but a representative from Alberta Culture does sit on its board. The group worried the proposal would take away from VLT revenue and other sources, but generally Tollenaar said they’re concerned charitable funding would decline. “Our biggest concern is that an idea or a proposal such as this would divert dollars from the charitable sector.” Wildrose MLA Kerry Towle said the province’s current Keno game is only played in a small number of locations and her party’s plan would expand that. “We are saying roll out to more areas to around 2,500 areas, including lottery-ticket stations and that would result in more revenue coming in.” Towle said she does not believe that Keno players would be the same as those currently gambling. “I think what you are going to do is appeal to a different market.” RYAN TUMILTY/METRO

Lit-bridges idea moves ahead

This rendering shows one possibility for what the High Level Bridge could look like with LED lights. A report going to city council’s executive committee next week says if funding can be found the project could be done this year. CONTRIBUTED

The idea of lighting up Edmonton’s river-valley bridges could take a step forward next week. A report going to council’s executive committee Monday outlines the possibility that the High Level Bridge could be outfitted with LED lights as early as this summer, and says EPCOR has already pledged between $200,000 and $225,000 in funding. Alberta Treasury Board chair Dave Mowat pitched the idea last fall at an Edmonton Pecha Kucha event, and said he is glad to hear the city is moving forward on it. He said starting with the High Level would be a great way to start.

“It’s actually quite an imposing structure, but when it gets dark it just completely disappears,” he said. “By lighting it up, I am certain it will become the signature shot of Edmonton.” Mayor Stephen Mandel asked for the report on the feasibility of the project in October. City transportation director Gord Cebryk, who authored the report, said the cost would depend on how elaborate a project the city wants. “It’s basically like you are going to Future Shop and what sort of TV do you want — the fancier the TV the more it’s going to cost you,” he said.

5 ways to enjoy the Deep Freeze

The sixth annual Deep Freeze: Byzantine Winter Festival is being held Saturday and Sunday on Alberta Avenue between 90 and 94 streets. There are a multitude of activities going on that bring together Ukrainian, Franco-Albertan, Franco-African, First Nations and Acadian/East Coast communities and their winter celebrations. Compiled by heather mcintyre/metro edmonton@metronews.ca

Fabulous food Cultural eats are a focus of Deep Freeze and there will be a Francophone theme Saturday with warm maple syrup served on snow and ice, meat pies, baked beans and sugar pie. Later that night, Acadian and Newfie food will take over at the Wild East Party. On Sunday a village pig on the spit at 12 p.m. will be followed by Ukrainian delights: Perogies, kielbasa, lazy cabbage rolls and borscht.

Outdoor activities

Snow sculptures

Ukrainian celebration

Just because Deep Freeze is a winter festival doesn’t mean there aren’t things going on inside. Highlights include an Art Gallery Show and Sale at four galleries, as well as an Artisan Village and Market with more than 50 vendors. There will also be story houses, belly-dancing workshops, both Francophone (Saturday) and Ukrainian (Sunday) music, many offers from Avenue Theatre, and much, much more.

Many of the outdoor activities are heritage-themed. They include wagon rides, outdoor skating, olde-thyme curling, winter minigolf, and a log-cutting competition. There will also be a giant ice slide and street-hockey tournament, as well as the popular Cool Runnins’ Deep Freezer Race. There will also be an opportunity to watch ice carvers, check out ideas for thaw huts (winter warming places), and participate in a snowball fight.

Ice carving and sculptures are always a draw for winter festivals in Edmonton, but the snow sculptures behind the Nina Haggarty Centre for the Arts are sure to generate a crowd to the Deep Freeze this year. The sculptures, created by Dutch snow sculptors Wilfred Stijger and Edith Van De Wetering, embody the Wild West theme of this year’s festival, with a giant bison, horses and stagecoach on display.

This year’s festival is a celebration of the Russian/Ukrainian Olde New Year, bringing back the Julian calendar. Some of the highlights of Sunday’s celebration will include traditional Ukrainian melodies at the Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse, a how-to on traditional Ukrainian beading, and a number of performances at the Avenue Theatre including the Ukrainian Men’s Choir, Cheremosh (a semi-professional dance company) and the Ukrainian/Aboriginal Dance Collective.

Like many, I was shocked to learn last week that two girls, 14 and 18, were allegedly lured to separate Edmonton hotel rooms, locked in, beaten and raped repeatedly by johns. I was not, however, shocked to read the online discourse around the three suspects, Hamid Fazli Ghejlou, Shahin Ranjbar and Ali Saghafi. Bloggers tweaked the headlines as three “Muslim men” facing charges, while newspaper readers commented on the suspects’ unsurprising nationalities, colour and religion. This was never a story about race. Police and media have rightly focused on the tragedy that is human trafficking, a $32-billion-a-year industry with 2.5 million victims, according to the UN, but when the story was handed to the public it became about race. Should it have been? In colonial times, European travellers to Arabia returned with stories about polygamy and harems. Today, it’s honour killings, wife beating and dress codes — all of which are very real Muslim issues. But that a horrid instance of child prostitution could be conflated with the above

Never mind that you can’t know these suspects’ orthodoxy or the origins of their passports by name, or that they’ve also been combined as one — this crime could have been perpetrated by any worthless man. Yet there are many who cherry-pick the news for names with plentiful vowels (like mine) in order to broadly stroke half of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims and any vaguely Middle Eastern man with the same archetypal brush. According to the Trudeau Foundation, 21 percent of Canadians with unfavourable views toward Muslims based their opinion on the religion’s treatment of women.

The people have spoken on what they think should represent Alberta’s past in a legislature time capsule to be buried for the next 100 years. Six thousand Albertans picked five items, from a list of 20, to be included in the time capsule, which will be placed under the legislature’s cornerstone later this year. It will be opened again in 2112 on the 200th anniversary of the legislature’s opening.

The five items: letters to the future by Alberta schoolchildren, with predictions about life 100 years from now; a roll of 2012 pennies and one full, uncirculated 2012 coin set; newspapers from the legislature’s centennial celebrations in September of 2012; photos of the 1909 time capsule unearthing event in June of 2012; and photos of classes that participated in the School at the Legislature program in 2012. metro

Some of them flat out told her, “Middle Eastern men don’t know how to treat women.” As one Twitter user who took litigious liberties with the prostitution story told me, “leave or resign yourself to the fate of being permanently suspicious.” (I’m from the deserts of Northern Alberta, by the way.) Much has been written about the oppression of women in my culture, but rarely do people consider how this stereotype adds extra scrutiny to otherwise modern, humanist men like myself. We’ve done well to discuss and condemn terrorism, but haven’t worked as strongly to combat the misogyny. Instead the discussion is about us, around us, but rarely by us.

Town gets $10 million back from province The Alberta government is returning more than $10 million to the town of Fort Macleod to offset the cost of a promised police college that didn’t pan out. Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths has spoken to town council and says it’s the right thing to do. The money is meant to cover the cash the municipality had already invested in the $122-million project before the government cancelled it. Fort Macleod waited for years for the police college that was promised by the government in 2006. A ground-breaking ceremony was finally held in 2011, but last August the province abruptly announced it was not going ahead with the training centre. Fort Macleod Mayor Shawn Patience says the community is left with a fully-serviced lot for any future development. the canadian press

New roadblocks threatened late last night to torpedo a critical meeting Friday between aboriginal leaders and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The head of Canada’s largest aboriginal group acknowledged he’ll be forced to go into the meeting — if it takes place at all — with a divided membership and weakened mandate. Shawn Atleo, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, says he has made mistakes and the organization he leads has made mistakes. But at a news conference Thursday night he pleaded with fellow chiefs to put aside their divisions or those splits will be exploited by governments across the country. Atleo was holding latenight meetings with the chiefs — who elected him last July — ahead of Friday’s meeting with Harper and two of his cabinet ministers. Those meetings were

He has now agreed to a request from Harper to host a ceremonial meeting with First Nations leaders at Rideau Hall.

Spence, chief of Ontario’s Attawapiskat reserve has been on a liquid-only diet for four weeks to draw attention to the plight of First Nations across the country. The refusal of prominent chiefs to take part in Friday’s meeting could undermine any agreement that comes out of the gathering. the canadian press

Efforts by congressional offices and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, which are distributing tickets to inaugural events, haven’t stopped online entrepreneurs. “These tix are going like hot cakes, and for FAR more than I am listing them for on here,” boasted one anonymous seller in a post Wednesday on Craigslist. The seller, who did not return an email from The Associated Press, offered two seats to the Jan. 21 swearing-in at the Capitol for $4,000. Even though enthusiasm isn’t as high as it was for Obama’s historic inauguration four years ago, memories of the incredible crowd for that sprawling outdoor event seem to have driven up prices for this year. The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies issued some 250,000 tickets for lawmakers to give out however they see fit. Scalping the tickets is not illegal. But the committee’s War on terror

Zero Dark Thirty slammed by exGitmo inmates Two former Guantanamo detainees on Thursday condemned Zero Dark Thirty, a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden whose brutal interrogation scenes have sparked a discussion over the use of extreme methods in the U.S. campaign against terror. “These people are getting away not only with committing the torture ... they’re justifying it,” said Omar Deghayes, who was left partially blind after what he said was a guard’s attempt to gouge out his eyes. the associated press

“She betrayed the service and let down her colleagues.’’ London Metropolitan Police, in a statement

Prosecutors said the tabloid did not print a story based on her call and no money changed hands but she had committed a “gross breach” of the public trust by offering

to sell the information. Casburn, 53, also was accused of trying to ruin the phone-hacking inquiry — which centred on Murdoch journalists at the now-defunct News of the World — by leaking information to the press. A key witness testified that Casburn wanted to torpedo the hacking inquiry because she feared it would drain resources from the fight against terrorism. the associated press

Unlike congressional tickets, tickets distributed by the Presidential Inaugural Committee can’t be resold without permission of the committee. Although tickets for the swearing-in ceremony are free, some other inaugural events charge admission. Online ads on sites like Craigslist, eBay and StubHub offered ticket packages Wednesday for upward of $4,000 to presidential committee events.

Reduce Belly Fat! Increase Energy!

Bombings in Pakistan leave at least 115 dead

Testosterone levels begin to diminish in men around age 30. In fact, by the time men are 60 years old, they typically produce 60% less testosterone than they did at age 20 (a man’s sexual peak). Many men over the age of 35 may already be feeling the effects of lower testosterone including: Increased Belly Fat Low Energy

Unfortunately at the same time testosterone is decreasing, estrogen levels are increasing, causing further muscle loss and gain in body fat, making it extremely difficult to maintain a healthy metabolism. Along with a program of proper nutrition and regular exercise, researchers have discovered a group of naturally proven nutrients that can help you safely reduce excess estrogen while maximizing testosterone levels.

A series of bombings in different parts of Pakistan killed at least 115 people on Thursday, including 81 who died in a sectarian attack on a bustling billiard hall in the southwest city of Quetta, officials said. The blasts punctuated one of the deadliest days in recent years in Pakistan, where the government faces a bloody insurgency by Taliban militants in the northwest and Baluch militants in the southwest. The country is also home to many enemies of the U.S. that Washington has frequently targeted with drone attacks. A U.S. missile strike Thursday killed five suspected militants in the seventh such

attack in two weeks, Pakistani intelligence officials said. A billiard hall in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, was hit by twin blasts about five minutes apart on Thursday night, killing 81 people and wounding more than 120 others, said a senior police officer. The billiard hall was located in an area dominated by Shiite Muslims. Many of the people who rushed to the scene after the first blast were hit by the second bomb, which caused the roof of the building to collapse, he said. More bloodshed

Indian troops fired across the disputed Kashmir border and killed a Pakistani soldier Thursday, Pakistan’s military said, the third deadly incident in the disputed Himalayan region in recent days.

Police officers, journalists and rescue workers who responded to the initial explosion were also among the dead, police said. The sectarian militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the attack to local journalists. Radical Sunni groups often target Pakistan’s Shiite minority, whom they believe hold heretical views and are not true Muslims. Earlier in the day, a bomb targeting paramilitary soldiers in a commercial area in Quetta killed 12 people and wounded more than 40 others. The United Baluch Army, a separatist group, claimed responsibility for the attack. Elsewhere in Pakistan, a bomb in a crowded Sunni mosque in the northwest city of Mingora killed 22 people and wounded more than 70, said senior police officer Akhtar Hayyat. The Associated Press

Who needs a guard dog when you have Mr. Teeth? alameda county sheriff’s office/the associated press

Meet Mr. Teeth … Its last job. Cops find alligator-like reptile guarding marijuana, but it dies later in a zoo hospital Authorities in Northern California made a snappy discovery during a routine probation check: An alligator-like reptile named Mr. Teeth, who was apparently protecting a stash of marijuana. When Alameda County

Sheriff’s deputies entered the Castro Valley home on Tuesday, they not only found 34 pounds of marijuana valued at an estimated $100,000, but also the five-foot-long caiman inside a Plexiglas tank guarding it in a bedroom. Officials at the Oakland Zoo said Mr. Teeth died a day after it was seized. The caiman was very sick when it arrived at the zoo’s veterinary hospital, zoo spokesperson Nicky Mora said Thursday. Caimans are usually found in the wetland regions of Central and South America.

Still overcoming trauma at sea Costa Concordia. Survivor gets a harsh lesson: You can’t just love the sea, you must fear and respect it jessica smith

Metro in Toronto

Peter Grajda has always been a ship enthusiast. That’s why, only four months after he survived the Costa Concordia disaster in Italy on Jan. 13, 2012, he set sail again. “It wasn’t a good experience,” the Toronto resident said of his spring voyage. “It was an eight-night cruise, and I slept only two nights — and then only because we had reached Bermuda. The ship was there overnight and I knew the ship was not in the sea.” Grajda had always loved cruising. He used to feel safe in a large boat and felt comforted by the life-jackets, the lifeboats and the feeling that nothing could ever really go wrong. That changed. “Each sound, each movement — like if the ship would move a little bit, or

Sudden horror

“It was beautiful weather, the beginning of a voyage…. Just three and a half hours later, everybody was running for their lives to find space in the lifeboats.” Peter Grajda, survivor

some noise — and right away I was alarmed that something might go wrong,” he said. When the Costa Concordia capsized, Grajda was in his cabin, having boarded the ship earlier that day. “We were leaving the city of Civitavecchia, and everybody was very excited.... Just three and a half hours later, everybody was running for their lives.... It was chaos and it was terrible,” he said. Grajda talked the experience over with a friend who is a seasoned sea captain. “He told me about the fear: that everyone who is related to

the sea has to experience some fear. As long as he’s aware of the power and the force of the sea and how damaging it can be — from that comes the respect of the sea,” Grajda said. “It’s very hard ... but you have to learn to live with this fear somehow.” That’s why Grajda tried again. In November, he went on another cruise. It went better. He’s learning to live with his fear, respect the sea as a force of nature and embrace his passion for cruises. “With time it’s healing, this trauma. But slowly,” he said. One thing that hasn’t changed since the days that followed the disaster is his disdain for the Concordia’s captain, Francesco Schettino. “Thirty-two souls gone. A half-billion-dollar ship destroyed,” Grajda said. “This man, I think he has a serial kind of ego problem, a psychological problem, because it’s unbelievable.” Schettino, who is facing many charges, including manslaughter and abandoning ship, told an investigating judge he left the sinking ship because he had accidentally fallen into the lifeboat that took him to safety and couldn’t get out.

Peter Grajda took this shot as the Costa Concordia went down. He said three lifeboats got stuck while being lowered, and passengers were forced to jump back to the sinking ship. They were the last free boats. Peter Grajda/contributed

Samsung shows smartphone with bendable screen Market Minute

Gadget show. Phone has matchbox-sized hard enclosure with a paper-thin, flexible colour screen attached By showing off a phone with a flexible screen, Samsung Electronics Co. is hinting at a day when we might fold up our large phone or tablet screens as if they were maps. The Korean electronics company provided a glimpse of such a device at a keynote speech Wednesday at the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas. The phone’s screen doesn’t appear flexible enough to fold in half like a piece of paper, but it could bend into a tube. The company also showed a video of a future concept,

with a phone-sized device that opens up like a book, revealing a tablet-sized screen inside. The screen uses organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs.

For the bendable phone, Samsung laid the chemicals over thin plastic instead of glass. That’s a trick you can’t pull off with liquid crystals in standard displays.

Texas Chainsaw 3D. The latest version of Neil Morton this cult classic stunned metronews.ca studio execs by finishing No. 1 at the box office, nudging out Quentin Tarantino’s Oscarnominated western Django Unchained and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

The world showed some modern love for David Bowie this week when, under no pressure, he released a new single Where Are We Now? on his 66th birthday — and announced his first album in 10 years, The Next Day, will be coming out in March. Let’s Dance to that. Oprah. Lance Armstrong talks to Oprah next week in his first no-holds-barred interview since the doping scandal. Might he admit his guilt? The interview airs Jan. 17 on Oprah’s Next Chapter and will be streamed live worldwide on Oprah.com. Must watch TV drama on your stationary bike. R.A. Dickey. Toronto got to meet their new ace/knuckleballer this week and fell in love. Dickey is perhaps the most articulate, intelligent athlete to come to town ever. Not to mention he has the best Twitter bio ever: “Father, Husband, Christian, Pitcher, Author, Adventurer, He’s really got a hold Star Wars Nerd, on Toronto: R.A.

Future of air travel

Revolutionary airship revealed Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a “super-blimp!” The 79-metre Aeroscraft has been hailed as a revolutionary airship that aims to provide a new way of moving heavy and oversized cargo, especially to areas with limited or no infrastructure. Californiabased Aeros recently completed construction of the airship prototype.

Follow The Metro List on Twitter @TheMetroList

• Payload. The craft is

pegged to carry cargo of up to 66 tons — equivalent to the weight of about a dozen elephants.

• Investment. NASA and the U.S. Pentagon invested $35 million in the project. • Future demos. Aeros is contractually obligated to show its airship’s abilities, including vertical takeoff. It hopes to roll out its first flights in three years’ time.

Technological innovation

Makers buoyed by breakthrough In the past, airships have had buoyancy problems because they needed to be weighed down or tied to the ground to keep them from being carried away by the wind while cargo is unloaded. Aeros claims its Aeroscraft is “the world’s first rigid variable-buoyancy air vehicle,” with an ability to compress and release helium in its balloon to retain buoyancy for unloading.

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Find them and kill them Morality tale. The Reel Guys agree that Zero Dark Thirty is a well-made film but differ when it comes to who enjoyed it Richard: Mark, this isn’t a who dunnit, or why dunnit, but a how dunnit. It’s a detailed look at the step-bystep process that resulted in locating and exterminating bin Laden. The story begins before President Obama’s famous, “We don’t torture,” speech, so it presents the uncomfortable, controversial truth that pitiless persuasion like sleep deprivation, boxing and waterboarding — so simple, yet so brutally, terrifyingly effective — was used to gain information. The torture scenes have been very much in the news, what did you think of them? Mark: Revenge — I mean justice — isn’t always pretty.

bad credit? no credit? i can help! You Deserve It! I Guarantee It!

MB: This is an anti-heroic view of the events, which took a lot of guts on the filmmakers’ parts. There’s certainly no one to “root for,” especially after the torture scenes. Jessica Chastain’s character is devoid of any personal life; she is her job. So is everyone else. The military has never looked so unappealing. It’s a grim and ugly job, and there’s a lot of truth in that point of view, but I found myself resisting the movie in many places. A lot of critics think this is the best film of the year. Richard?

RC: I did. I thought it was a nuanced, suspenseful and terrifically exciting look at recent history. We know how the movie is going to end, so the trick is to keep us engaged through to the climax, which, for me, the movie does. Having said that, there is frequent overwriting — like the inevitable “then I’m gonna kill bin Laden” moment — which seems too easy for a

movie this clever, but, for me, Kathryn Bigelow’s virtuosic handling of the climatic raid scene overpowers the film’s weaker moments.

But it does show that you can negotiate with terrorists. The torture scenes set up the moral queasiness that runs through the whole movie. As the C.I.A. honcho says, “Get me some names so I can kill them!” And no one is safe in the final raid on the bin Laden compound, not even the innocent. Did I like the picture? I can only muster two cheers here. It’s authentic and gritty, but much of it is a plodding procedural with only intermittent action. Richard, I think we’ll agree it’s a good movie, but did you enjoy watching it?

RC: I’d agree with that. It is grim, but so is the story it chooses to tell. It’s also heartthumpingly exciting and well made. MB: Well-made indeed. But in the end, I respected it more than enjoyed it.

Synopsis

SCENE

Zero Dark Thirty is getting early positive reviews with its heart-pumping-action-filled narrative. HANDOUT

The film begins on 9/11 with audio of calls coming from the Twin Towers. Stage set, the movie leaps forward two years to the brutal waterboarding and torture of an Osama bin Laden relative by Dan (Jason Clarke), a C.I.A. expert in extracting information. Overseeing the enhanced interrogation techniques is Maya (Jessica Chastain), a newly recruited officer charged with helping to track down terrorist leader bin Laden and dismantle al-Qaeda. This is her story, a carefully plotted espionage tale that flows from the clues that lead to the death of bin Laden at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011. Star ratings: •

This movie will suffer from comparisons to The Untouchables and LA Confidential. It grabs the atmosphere of post war L.A. from the latter and the storyline — about an undercover team of police led by Sgt. O’Mara (Josh Brolin) who bring ruthless mobster Mickey Cohen to justice — almost beat for beat, from the former. But this is a far more blunt object than either of its forbearers. It’s a period piece that spends a bit too much time exploring the down-and-dirty side of the story, but is a stylish look at a fascinating time.

After a tsunami wipes out their Thai resort, an English family are separated from one another with Maria (Watts) and her oldest son left wondering if her husband Henry (McGregor) and their two youngest sons are still alive. Based on a true story, director J.A. Bayona (the Orphanage) creates some of the year’s most viscerally thrilling scenes during the initial tidal wave and its immediate aftermath. But the film peaks early and the ensuing search and flip-flopping points-of-view prove anticlimactic.

Even a charming performance by Bill Murray can’t quite save Hyde Park on Hudson from its own mismatched intent. Onepart quasi-romantic drama between wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Murray) and a distant cousin/mistress (Linney) and one-part comedy about Roosevelt’s 1939 relationship-building with the King of England, one wishes filmmaker Roger Michell had chosen the latter to base his beautifully-shot film around even in spite of some crafty dialogue and plotting.

After his turn as the Governator, Schwarzenegger returns to what he does best Arnold Schwarzenegger likes to beat people to a joke. “First of all, it’s great to be back,” he says with a grin before anyone gets a chance to adapt his famous catchphrase to his return to movies after an extended stint running the state of California. And he is back, he insists, starring in The Last Stand as a small-town sheriff going up against an army of mercenaries. “As you remember, when I got into the governorship in 2003, I said I only would go and run the state for the seven years that were remaining, then I would be back in the movie business,” he says. “So it was just kind of stepping out of the movie business

rather than kind of like I’m now going back to the movie business.” During that time, though, the movie business has changed, a harsh lesson for Schwarzenegger, considered a “contract genius” in his heyday for the deals he could broker

for films like Eraser and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines regardless of their success or failure. “It’s kind of like a scary thing to come back because you don’t know if you’re accepted or not,” he admits. “I have to also be realistic that I may see something that I may like to do, and I will go and take it to (producer) Lorenzo (di Bonaventura) and he will say, ‘Oh, this is fantastic, but I don’t think anyone is going to see it.’ It’s show business. It’s the show, it’s the acting, it’s the performing, it’s all of this, but you’ve got to be able to sell it also because movies cost a lot of money.” In The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger, now 65, is also hoping to get out in front of any wave of jokes about his age. “You don’t want to dwell on it, but to just throw it in, and it takes the curse off then,” he says of jokes made at the expense of his advancing years in the film. “You can make fun of yourself.” ned ehrbar, mwn

For the love of all that is Lincoln Academy Award nominations. Steven Speilberg’s epic historical film tops the list with the most nods at 12, while Zero Dark Thirty gets only five Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

It looks like it’s Spielberg’s race to lose at this year’s Academy Awards, as his Lincoln pulled in 12 nominations — the most of any film nominated this year — including best adapted screenplay, best actor, best supporting actress, best director and best picture. If Oscar history is any indication, odds are the best director and best picture winners will align, so despite nine films being nominated this year, the real race is between Amour, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Life of Pi, Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook, and our money is on Spielberg’s histor-

ical drama. “I don’t know why we don’t wait until noon to do this,” host Seth MacFarlane joked before inviting actress Emma Stone to join him to announce the nominees. “The only people up right now are either flying or having surgery.” The nominations of course signal shifting into the most intense section of awards season, something

not all the nominees are necessarily thrilled about. “It’s obviously exciting, it’s like getting a promotion at work,” best supporting actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence told Metro on the eve of the Oscar nominations, adding that her parents were staying with her and planned to have her up at 4:30 a.m. “I just get anxiety over parties, and that’s what that means, essentially, to me, (being) surrounded by lots of people, and it just gives me anxiety just to think about it.” Biggest winners Lincoln is the clear winner nomination-wise, with Ang Lee’s Life of Pi close behind at 11 nods, while Beasts of the Southern Wild, which nabbed four high-profile nominations, and Amour, with five, had their profiles raised considerably. And the Academy’s love for David O. Russell is clear. Much like with his last film, the Fighter, his Silver Linings Playbook earned spots for best picture, best director,

Need a movie made on a shoestring? Mark Wahlberg might be your man. The former bad boy rapper turned Oscar-nominated actor and now film and TV producer shared his recipe for making films on a recent visit to Toronto. “You gotta come in with that television mentality. You’ve got a lot less money and a lot less time, but you’ve got a great piece of material,” he says. The next ingredient is attracting top talent — as in the likes of Russell Crowe — by serving them juicy roles and offering them a share of the profits. It’s a time when Hollywood studios are reticent to take risks, and in the adult crime thriller genre — the genre where Wahlberg has carved his niche — it’s the only way to stay ahead of the curve, he says. In fact, he’s baffled by massive movie budgets. “I was just in New Mexico shooting this movie that we shot in 38 days and before us The Lone Ranger was there. It’s about two guys on horses and it cost $250 million to make. Like, what the f— were these horses doing? You know, do they fly? I don’t

know. It’s crazy.” By contrast, Wahlberg’s latest film, Broken City, which opens Jan. 18, cost around $55 million to make and boasts a cast that includes Wahlberg himself, Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones. In it, Wahlberg plays an exNYPD officer haunted by his past deadly vigilantism. Now as a private detective, he’s been hired by New York’s mayor (Crowe) to track the infidelities of his prominent client’s wife. The murky lawman is a role Wahlberg has come to love. “I can certainly appreciate and relate to these guys. The bad guy who is trying to do something good is usually the one I root for,” he says.

From gunslinging to diaper-changing? Change on the horizon. Justified’s Timothy Olyphant, who plays Raylan, sounds off on the new stars and side stories of the show’s fourth season

Tina, Amy are Golden’s girls It should be a fun-filled night with Tina Fey of 30 Rock and Amy Poehler of Parks and Recreation hosting the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Airing live from Los Angeles, it’s a chance for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to honour achievement in film and television and is a lead-up to the Oscars at the end of February. The nominees for best films are Argo, Django Unchained, Life of Pi, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty. NBC / GAVIN BOND

Raylan gets a new partner in (fighting) crime Comedian Patton Oswalt joins the cast as Const. Bob Sweeney, on old classmate of Raylan’s. “I wouldn’t call it a friendship; I’d call it a working relationship,” Olyphant says of the pairing. On set, however, the alliance was much more chummy. “I can tell you that Patton Oswalt is money — I mean, that guy’s so good,” Olyphant says. “He makes it a little tough for me to get through a scene with a straight face and yet he’s so serious and fantastic. It’s just been a pleasure working with him.”

The newest season of Justified premieres Wednesday, Jan. 23 on Super Channel. handout

Raylan finds himself living above a dive bar and moonlighting as a bounty hunter The marshal who grew up surrounded by crooks has always tiptoed the line between being a “good guy” and a “bad guy.” That line gets blurred when he illegally takes a side gig to scrape together extra money for the baby he’s about to have with his estranged ex-wife. “He seems to be walking right up to the edge now and then, and that’s kind of the fun of it — watching how close he can get to that without cross-

ing,” Olyphant says of the rulebending lawman. “There’s a fun game that happens now and again where others try to pin him down on who he is and what his intentions were or what would’ve happened had (a scenario) not gone exactly the way it did. Raylan refuses to allow that. That’s a fun character to play.” Raylan as a dad How will fatherhood affect the trigger-happy marshal? “I like the idea creatively, as far as storytelling’s concerned,

of Raylan being a father,” Olyphant says. But don’t expect to actually see the character spending a lot of quality time with his child. “Little kids on the set — they tend to be a pain,” Olyphant, a father of three, says. “And if they’re not, their parents are. “So, I don’t see us having a kid on the show too much because no one wants to deal with that.” And some things never change As long as burgeoning crime boss Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) is around, Raylan is going to have his hands full in his hometown. “You’re not going to get through the season without them hooking up,” Olyphant says of the show’s central antagonistic pair. “What we didn’t want to do is just keep it on the same scene over and over. We’re doing our best to try to keep the story both familiar but yet unexpected. Stay tuned.” AMBER RAY/MWN

3 songs for the weekend sound check

Alan Cross scene@metronews.ca

Cheap Beer/ FIDLAR Hands down my favourite song of the moment. The lyrics are definitely NSFW, but for a Friday night, this is perfect.

It’s the most depressing time of the year: cold, dark, Christmas bills, front loading of CPP deductions on the paycheque. Maybe these songs will cheer you up.

Miracle/Hurts The band Hurts is a stylish two-piece from the UK. Miracle evokes memories of the post-New Romantic era of the early-to-mid ’80s. The album, Exile, will be out in March.

On a Frontier of Wires/William Basinski: In 1982, Basinski, an experimental musician, recorded Shortwavemusic, using various recycled sounds. It’s just been reissued on — wait for it — reel-to-reel tape and in digital.

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift gets some un-Wanted dating advice Taylor Swift has recently broken up with One Direction’s Harry Styles, so naturally it’s time for rival boy band the Wanted to chime in on Swift’s love life. “I think she should stay Josh Brolin isn’t upset about his arrest. All photos getty images

Twitter

Josh Brolin laughs off recent arrest Josh Brolin is taking his New Year’s day arrest for public intoxication in stride. “New Year’s — that’s what happened,” he says during a visit to Good Morning America. “I’m the one guy who’s out there, and they go, ‘Hey, there’s Josh. Let’s grab him.’ You know, it was New Year’s. It was a pretty innocent thing. It was a fun thing.” If Brolin is upset about anything, it’s the grim-

single for a bit,” the Wanted’s Jay McGuiness tells E! News. Fellow band member Nathan Sykes agrees, adding that Swift should “write a whole album about (being single.)”

After mixed reviews and speculation that the show’s

producers were planning to oust her, Britney Spears has decided to leave the X Factor after one season, according to Us Weekly. Spears earned $15 million for her stint as a judge for the singing competition series. And sources say Simon Cowell and the show’s other bosses were less than thrilled by what they got for their money. Cowell “wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney,” a source says.

Bottles to watch in ’13 LIQUID ASSETS

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

Old is new, again: Many of last year’s trends will be back in 2013. Look for sweeter reds, semi-sweet white Moscato and mega blends on both the white and red side to continue to dominate. Malbec is back: Argentina may have the monopoly on the grape, but look for its food friendly personality to invade the shelves of France and non-traditional countries like South Africa. Aussie Regionality: Down Under will make a play for your palate by focusing attention on its unique regional profiles. Expect McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley, Margaret River and Barossa Valley to take the lead. Embraceable Iberia: This will be the year for Spain and Portugal. Forget the impossible to pronounce place and grape names; they’re all part of the fun. Oh, Canada: With provinces relaxing interprovincial shipping rules, a bottle from a small winery may be just a mouse click away. Start with Nova Scotia. L’Acadie Vineyards’ 2010 Vintage Cuvée ($25.99) is a mouthful of bubbly that, if you close your eyes, will have you thinking you’re drinking champagne. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

This can be served as a main meal with a side salad or soup, or it can accompany a main dish. The smoked salmon gives it a sophisticated flair that makes it a good company dish as well as a nutritious family dinner. You can substitute jumbo pasta shells (8 ounces will yield about 24 shells) for the manicotti, or stuff approximately 12 cannelloni shells.

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Ingredients • 10 manicotti • 1 1/4 cups smooth light ricotta cheese • 1/2 cup shredded light cheddar cheese • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese • 2 oz smoked salmon, chopped • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives or green onion • 3 tbsp 2% milk • 1 egg • pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper • 1 1/2 cups tomato-based pasta sauce • 1 tsp dried basil • 1/2 cup 2% evaporated milk • 2 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

This recipe serves six. MARK SHAPIRO, FROM ROSE REISMAN’S COMPLETE LIGHT KITCHEN (WHITECAP BOOKS)

Spray a 13- by 9-inch baking dish with cooking oil.

2. Cook the manicotti in boiling water according to package instructions, or until firm to the bite, approximately 10 minutes. Drain, cover and set aside. 3. Combine the ricotta, ched-

dar and Parmesan cheeses in a medium mixing bowl. Add the smoked salmon, chives, 3

tbsp milk, egg, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Slit the manicotti along one side and open like a book. Divide the cheese mixture among the manicotti. Close the manicotti around the stuffing.

4. Combine the tomato sauce, basil and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl and mix until smooth. Pour half the mixture in the bottom of the

prepared baking dish. Place the stuffed manicotti in the baking dish and pour the remaining sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.

5. Cover and bake for 15 minutes, or until hot through. Garnish with the chopped fresh basil before serving. ROSE REISMAN’S COMPLETE LIGHT KITCHEN (WHITECAP BOOKS) BY ROSE REISMAN

Frozen fun Bundle up the gang and head to Alberta Avenue for Deep Freeze: a Byzantine Winter Fest running on Saturday and Sunday. Yes, there’s theatre — yes, there’s ice carving — there’s even a down east-style party night and fireworks. The free event showcases the food and culture from our Ukrainian, First Nations, Acadian and French communities with fiddle music, dance, an artisan market and gallery sale. And how about that cabane a sucre (sugar shack)? This is one busy festival! Bring a donation to the Food Bank and you’re in. On 118 Avenue, between 90-94 Streets.

Jays fly into town Hockey, shmockey — let’s pause for a moment and think baseball. The Toronto Blue Jays Winter Tour 2013 is in our city on Saturday and Sunday, with a slate of activities including a stop at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and CFB Edmonton. Players and Blue Jays personnel will make time Sunday afternoon for a fan autograph session at West Edmonton Mall, so put on your ball cap and come on down for a picture or to have your baseball signed. For more tour info, go to bluejays.com. Come see the boys of summer this winter. It’s a funny year like that.

Visions of sugar plums If you missed the December version of The Nutcracker, with its sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers and scampering mice, no worries — they’re back — and in a world premiere, no less. Based on Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Clara’s Dream, a Ukrainian folk ballet, takes to the stage of the Jubilee Friday and Saturday for a lavish production that weaves Ukrainian Christmas traditions and symbols with dance, courtesy of Edmonton’s Ukrainian Shumka Dancers and Kyiv’s Virsky Ukrainian State Folk Dance Co. Tickets start at $25 through Ticketmaster.

Two-wheeled fun Is it too soon to talk motorcycles and ATV’s? Nah, let’s go there. The snow will melt some day. All things motorcycle are on display this weekend, Friday to Sunday, at the Motorcycle and ATV Show at the Expo Centre at Northlands. There’s heart-pounding action all weekend with the extreme thrill show, where stunt riders do things we’d never imagine on an ATV or motorcycle — kids, don’t try this at home. But kids six to 12 can learn to ride at the Yamaha riding academy while parents peruse the exhibits. For more, go to motorcycleshows.ca.

Expanded blood testing for HGH ahead in 2013

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MLB

“Hopefully someday somebody calls you and says, ‘Hey, we want to give you a second chance.’” Baseball’s career hits leader Pete Rose, trying to provide a few lessons in patience after Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were kept out of the Hall of Fame on Wednesday. Rose agreed to a permanent ban from baseball in 1989 after the former Cincinnati Reds player and manager was accused of betting on baseball. He is also banned from inclusion on the Hall of Fame ballot, although four voters gave him write-in votes this week.

SPORTS

Major League Baseball will test for human growth hormone throughout the regular season and increase efforts to detect abnormal levels of testosterone, a decision the NFL used to pressure its players. Baseball players were subject to blood testing for HGH during spring training last year, and Thursday’s agreement between management and the Major League Baseball Players Association expands that throughout the season. Those are in addition to urine tests for other performance-enhancing drugs. Under the changes to baseball’s drug agreement, the World AntiDoping Agency laboratory in Laval, Que., will keep records of each player, including his baseline ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone, and will conduct Carbon Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS) tests of any urine specimens that “vary materially.”

could to hit the ground running when the lockout ended. Once the deal was finally signed, he was instead hit with a reality check. “All of a sudden, when it happened, everything just accelerated, just blew up,” Melrose said. “You went from nothing to knowing you had to start the season in 10 days. We’d been preparing for a long time but we were not really prepared. “Things happened very quickly.” Melrose didn’t finish the season behind the Kings bench. He was replaced by Rogie Vachon with just seven games to play and Los Angeles floundering in the standings at 13-21-7. THE CANADIAN PRESS

NHL. Increased urgency Quoted could be overwhelming, “A 5-0 start could be golden and an 0-5 start could say those who went be deadly.” Nashville Predators GM David Poile through 1995 campaign Kelly Hrudey was not accustomed to being pulled into his coach’s office for a chat after the first game of the regular season. But this wasn’t a normal season. The Los Angeles Kings goaltender could probably have been excused for showing a little rust when play resumed in January 1995, after an extended lockout and an abbreviated training camp. After all, it was essentially his first meaningful game in

eight months when the Toronto Maple Leafs visited the Kings at the Great Western Forum on opening night. “We tied 3-3 and I had let in a really bad goal,” Hrudey recalled in a recent interview. “I remember (coach) Barry Melrose said, ‘We just can’t have that in this season because it’s so short and we can’t give you two weeks to get ready.’ “I remember that part about it. There was a real sense of urgency which you

don’t normally have for a season.” The 48-game schedule was crammed into 104 days that year and saw NHL teams play only opponents within their own conference. There had never been anything like it before. And it proved to be a pretty wild ride. Like many coaches who currently find themselves preparing for the start of training camps on Sunday and a Jan. 19 puck drop, Melrose felt he had done everything he possibly

Study says Seau had brain disease When he ended his life last year by shooting himself in the chest, Junior Seau had a degenerative brain disease often linked with repeated blows to the head. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health said Thursday the former NFL star’s abnormalities are consistent with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. The hard-hitting linebacker played for 20 NFL seasons with San Diego, Miami and New England before retiring in 2009. He died at age 43 of a selfinflicted gunshot in May, and his family requested the analysis of his brain. “It was important to us to get to the bottom of this, the truth,” his ex-wife Gina Seau said. “And now that it has been conclusively determined from every expert that he had obviously had CTE, we just hope it is taken more seriously.” In the final years of his life, Seau had wild behavioural swings, according to Gina and to 23-year-old son Tyler, along with signs of irrationality, forgetfulness, insomnia and depression. The NFL faces lawsuits by thousands of former players who say the league withheld information on the harmful effects of concussions. the associated press

The anxiety-filled green room and draft day seem so long ago now to Aaron Rodgers. Still, this weekend, any lingering feelings of frustration about how far he dropped will be directed at the team that passed him up with the No. 1 pick nearly eight years ago. Rodgers brings the highscoring Green Bay Packers (12-5) to Candlestick Park on Saturday to face No. 2 seed San Francisco (11-4-1) in prime time for a place in the NFC championship game. He’ll take the field in the very venue where he became a regular fan as a boy rooting for Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Steve Young. Rodgers will look to avenge a 30-22 season-opening home loss to the 49ers. “It will be fun. I went to a

few baseball games there growing up, and saw a game there when I was in college,” Rodgers said. “Stadium’s got a lot of tradition. Looks like we’re kind of fortunate with the weather right now. Still wonder what that’s going to be like.” Rodgers returns to Northern California, where he became a college star for California across San Francisco Bay in Berkeley, with a healthy cast of receivers and the swagger of a Super Bowl champion. When Rodgers dropped to No. 24 in the 2005 draft after Alex Smith went No. 1, he was asked about his disappointment. He matter-of-factly said, “Not as disappointed as the 49ers will be that they didn’t draft me.” Now, everybody in the Bay Area and beyond will be watching his every move again. Even San Francisco’s opportunistic, ball-hawking defence realizes just how hard it will be to rattle Rodgers or get him off his game. He hasn’t thrown an interception in five straight games and 177 passes. the associated press

Crossword: Canada Across and Down

Libra

Aries

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Use whatever information comes your way today to your advantage. Most likely you will learn something about a social rival or work associate that they don’t want you to know. At last you’ve got some leverage!

March 21 - April 20 Today’s new moon urges you to make the most of an opportunity of some kind. Being the ambitious sort you want to move up in the world, so let the powers that be know what you can do — by doing it.

Taurus

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 The more you talk things through with partners and colleagues today, the more they and you will understand that your interests are one and the same. Communication is the key to success — and lasting friendship.

April 21 - May 21 At some stage today, you will realize that life is both more complicated and more simple than you have up until now imagined. What matters though is that you are thinking for yourself. So few people ever do.

Gemini

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Follow your instincts today, especially where money matters and business deals are concerned. No matter what the facts and figures may say if you sense that something is not quite right you must hold back.

May 22 - June 21 The new moon will give you a pointer as to what you should be doing and who you should be doing it with. It also suggests that you could make some serious money, but only as part of a team.

Cancer

Leo

Aquarius

July 24 - Aug. 23 You run the risk of getting bogged down by details that could and should be left until another day, if not ignored altogether. Focus on essentials only, such as getting ahead in your career and making a fortune.

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 What you need to convince yourself of today is that your fear is based on an illusion caused by your determination to always seem to be in control. Let fate guide you over the next 24 hours. You’ll enjoy the results.
