Fire destroys 3 homes in Lewis Estates No injuries. Block evacuated, firefighters rescue dog from burning home Annalise Klingbeil

Three homes in Lewis Estates on 215th Street and 88th Avenue were destroyed by fire on Sunday afternoon. LMD-EDM-Metro-5y-10x164-CLR.pdf 1 13-04-09 10:20 AM It is not known what caused the fire. Annalise Klingbeil/metro









Mark Planche was in his bedroom on Sunday afternoon when he heard someone outside screaming, “The house is on fire!” “I looked out my window; I smelled smoke. I got the hell out,” he said. Still in his pyjama pants, Planche watched from across the street as a fire destroyed the home next to his house, and two more beside it, around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. “There are three houses that are a total writeoff,” said

Easy go

“You work really, really hard to get into a house. Years and years to get a down payment.... It can all be ripped away within a matter of minutes.” Neighbour Matt Germsheid

District Chief Lorne Corbett, standing in front of the consumed homes in Lewis Estates, as firefighters doused hot spots Sunday afternoon. There were no injuries at the two-alarm blaze, and a dog was saved from one of the burning homes, Corbett said. “Our firefighters went in, they located that dog, they returned it to the owners and the dog is OK,” he said. Corbett credited a quick de-

fensive attack from crews and low winds with keeping the fire under control. “If this was a high kilometre wind, this most definitely would have involved a few more houses to the east,” he said. The home Planche has lived in for eight years suffered scorched siding and cosmetic damage. As he watched firefighters douse hot spots, Planche said he was happy no one was hurt. “You can replace stuff. Stuff is just stuff. Everyone got out, all the animals are safe,” he said. Matt Germsheid had just put his son down for a nap when he looked outside and saw the house next to his neighbour’s home on fire. By the time he got his son and a pair of shoes, the fire had spread to his neighbour’s house.

Wildfires spark provincial fire ban Hot, dry conditions and gusty winds fueled wildfires that prompted the evacuation of two Alberta communities on Sunday. The hamlets of Nordegg and Lodgepole were both evacuated as wildfires moved close to each community.

18th Annual Mother’s Day Run. Event in support of Stollery Children’s Hospital drew more than 2,100 runners despite clouds PATRICK NGUYEN

Thousands of Edmontonians participated in the annual Sport Chek Mother’s Day Run and Walk on Sunday and organizers estimate they raised more than $100,000 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. This year marks the 18th in-

My boy seems to enjoy the crowds too.” The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation is looking to put the money raised from this year’s run towards purchasing two critical pieces of equipment, which together bear a total cost of $102,000. Also part of the event was a Little Legs Race, in which children of the participants ran on Foote Field’s track. Every child who participated received a medal. The event made it extra fun for kids, said Marcy Lewis, a participating mother. “My daughter really loved that part. She was very happy and proud with her medal.”

• The runners chose a 5- or 10-kilometre trek. • The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation wants to buy an Optical Coherence Tomography, which is a non-contact medical imaging technology similar to ultrasound and MRI. • They also want to purchase a Non-Mydriatic Fundus Camera, which is a table-based digital camera unit for photographing features of the back of the eye.

Terrorist escapes house arrest in France

Second case of new SARSrelated virus

Boy charged in acid attack; victim in hospital

A convicted terrorist in France has escaped house arrest in a stolen car. Said Arif was a member of a Chechen network that once planned attacks in France, notably the eastern city of Strasbourg. Interior Minister Manuel Valls said in a statement that Arif, who was awaiting expulsion after serving his prison term, fled in a car owned by the family that runs the hotel where he was being held. The Algerian was convicted in 2007 of criminal association with a terrorist group and served part of a 10-year term. the associated press

France has confirmed a second case of a deadly new respiratory virus related to SARS, authorities said Sunday, as they increased efforts to inform the public about how to avoid the illness and watch for its signs. A hospital roommate of the 65-year-old man who initially contracted the virus tested positive for the illness. The second patient’s condition has deteriorated, requiring intensive care, the health minister said. The minister added that the first patient is “in a stable but worrisome situation.”

British police say a 15-year-old boy has been charged in connection with an acid attack on a woman in northeast London. The 28-year-old victim — who police have named only as Tara — suffered injuries to her face and torso when she was attacked after answering the door on April 30. Scotland Yard said Sunday that the teen is accused of throwing corrosive fluid on a person with the intent to do grievous bodily harm. The teen appears in court Monday.

Gunfire turns parade into pandemonium New Orleans shooting. Cops say street violence, not terror, responsible for injuring at least 19

Gunmen opened fire on dozens of people marching in a neighbourhood Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans on Sunday, wounding at least 19 people, police said. The FBI said that the shooting appeared to be “street vio-

lence� and wasn’t linked to terrorism. Many of the victims were grazed and most of the wounds weren’t life-threatening, according to a police news release. No deaths were reported by Sunday night. The victims included 10 men, seven women, a boy and a girl. The children, both 10 years old, were grazed and in good condition, but police said at least two people were in surgery Sunday night.

Mary Beth Romig, a spokeswoman for the FBI in New Orleans, said federal investigators have no indication that the shooting was an act of terrorism. “It’s strictly an act of street violence in New Orleans,� she said. Police saw three suspects running from the scene in the city’s 7th Ward neighbourhood. No arrests had been made as of Sunday night. The Associated Press

Mother, 44, and her son, 13, found dead; suspect killed by police as he held three kids — 18, 16 and four — captive The bodies of a woman and her 13-year-old son were found after a days-long standoff, and her boyfriend was killed as officers stormed the home to rescue three other children he had been holding captive, authorities said Sunday. Police officers went to the South Trenton home Friday afternoon after reports that some of the children hadn’t been to school in 12 days, authorities said Sunday at a news conference. Officers entered the home through a rear door and smelled an odour consistent with that of a decomposing body, Trenton Police Director

They found 38-year-old Gerald “Skip” Murphy in an upstairs bedroom, and he Gerald “Skip” told them he Murphy was armed the associated press with a gun and explosives and had three children with him, Mercer County Prosecutor Joseph L. Bocchini Jr. said. Officers retreated from the second floor and rescued a 19-year-old man from the basement, who said he hadn’t seen his mother or siblings since about April 24. A SWAT team was called in, and an arson bomb unit also appeared on the scene. Police said Murphy could be seen from a window holding a black handgun. Police remained in contact with Murphy throughout the 37-hour-long standoff and

Turkey says it won’t get into Syrian war Twin car bombs. Biggest incident of violence across border since start of crisis Turkey’s prime minister vowed Sunday his country won’t be drawn into Syria’s civil war, despite twin car bombings the government

believes were carried out by a group of Turks with close ties to pro-government groups in Syria. Forty-six people died. Syria has rejected allegations it was behind the attacks. But Turkish authorities said Sunday they had detained nine Turkish citizens with links to the Syrian intelligence agency in connection with the bombings in the border town of Reyhanli, a hub for Syrian

Sleepless in Israel. Critics restless over Netanyahu’s $127K bed on 5-hour flight Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will seek alternate sleeping arrangements when travelling after receiving a sky-high bill for installing a customized bed on a recent flight to London, officials close to the leader said. Netanyahu found himself facing a public uproar on Sunday after Israel’s Channel 10 TV reported over the weekend that he had spent $127,000 US in public funds on a special sleeping cabin for the five-hour flight to attend Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last month. Netanyahu’s office initially defended the decision, saying the prime minister had a busy schedule ahead of the flight and needed to be fresh for important meetings in Britain. But following public criticism, officials close to Netanyahu said late Saturday that he had been unaware of the cost, and once informed, ordered the bed be cancelled on all future flights. The uproar comes at a delicate time. Netanyahu’s government is in the process of drawing up a budget China coal mines

Authorities suspect the leader of a former Marxist group, Mirhac Ural, now believed to be based in Syria, may have revived his group and ordered the attack.

40 miners killed in separate blasts

Indonesia stops boat carrying 96

Authorities say 40 miners have died in two separate coal mine explosions in southwestern China. Officials say 28 miners were killed in a blast Saturday at a coal mine in Sichuan province. They say 108 people were underground at the time. Less than 24 hours earlier, another coal mine blast in neighbouring Guizhou province killed 12 people.

Indonesian authorities say they intercepted a wooden fishing boat Sunday carrying 96 Middle Eastern asylum seekers trying to reach Australia. The boat was stopped off the Benoa port on Bali island. Many initially refused to leave the boat, but agreed after an all-day standoff. Two Indonesian crew members were held on people-smuggling charges. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Illegal-downloading megasuits rear head north of the border Anti-piracy battle. Case involving Teksavvy, Voltage Pictures could pave way for U.S.-style actions on file-sharing Massive lawsuits targeting people who illegally download copyrighted content are common in the U.S., where people have been stuck with hefty fines and out-of-court settlements. Now there’s an attempt to bring that to Canada. At the centre of the effort is Canipre, the only anti-

piracy enforcement firm that provides forensic services to copyright-holders in Canada. The Montreal-based firm has been monitoring Canadian users’ downloading of pirated content for several months. It has now gathered more than one million different evidence files, according to its managing director Barry Logan. One of its clients is now before Federal Court in Toronto, requesting customer information for over 1,000 IP addresses — a user’s unique Internet signature — collected by Canipre. That client is the American studio Voltage Pictures, maker

of hundreds of films, including the Academy-Award-winning Hurt Locker. On the other side of the case is Teksavvy, an Ontario-based Internet provider. The IP addresses flagged by Canipre link back to its users. The case is set to resume next month. If the court orders Teksavvy to hand over customer info, it could be the beginning of a new chapter in the anti-piracy battle in Canada. “We have a long list of clients waiting to go to court,” said Logan, who estimates that about 100 different companies are paying close attention to the case.

Business to have bigger role in Arctic debates: Minister

Branson honours a bet British entrepreneur Richard Branson, left, poses with AirAsia’s chief executive Tony Fernandes while dressed as an AirAsia flight attendant at a low-cost carrier terminal in Malaysia on Sunday. The Virgin Group founder had his legs shaved, put on lipstick and squeezed into the red outfit to honour a bet by serving as a flight attendant on an AirAsia trip from Perth, Australia, to Malaysia.

Every time Los Angeles exhales, odd-looking gadgets anchored in the mountains above the city trace the invisible puffs of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases that waft skyward. Halfway around the globe, similar contraptions atop the Eiffel Tower and elsewhere around Paris keep a pulse on emissions from smokestacks and automobile tailpipes. And there is talk of outfitting Sao Paulo, Brazil, with sensors that sniff the byproducts of burning

fossil fuels. It’s part of a budding effort to track the carbon footprints of megacities, urban hubs with over 10 million people that are increasingly responsible for human-caused global warming. For years, greenhouse pollutants have been closely monitored around the planet by stations on the ground and in space. Now, scientists are observing large cities’ emissions to help independently verify whether local climate goals are being met. The Associated press

Bright lights, big-city magnet

One thing the Chinese really understand is that light attracts much more than moths. People are attracted to light because it says, “Things are happening here. There are people here. There are things to do here.” The brighter and more animated the lights, the greater the draw. We should use that information when it comes to Winston Churchill Square and the area surrounding it. The entire district should be lit up like Christmas every night of the year. We have some highly creative people in this city who could help create “lightscapes” that say, “Happening place.” Add food vendors and such and I think we could change the square from concrete desert to social oasis.

Although the exact date is unknown, scholars believe the Buddha was born around 2,557 years ago. In Korea, his birthday is traditionally celebrated on the full moon in May.

The lighting of a lotus-shaped lantern in Buddhism symbolizes a display of religious devotion to perform good deeds and lighting up the dark parts of the world that are filled with agony.

Family takes centre stage for this summer’s 98 Degrees tour Q&A. Nick Lachey talks Package tour, lullabies and diapers meredith engel

Metro World News in NYC

With his new Fisher-Price CD A Father’s Lullaby, Nick Lachey found a way to combine two of his greatest loves: music and his son, Camden. But his latest solo project and his 8-month-old baby aren’t the only projects keeping him busy these days: he’s also readying for a summer tour with the reunited 98 Degrees, with Boyz II Men and New Kids on the Block for an arena tour appropriately dubbed The Package. On top of that, 98 Degrees have just released a new album, their first in more than a decade. We caught up with Lachey before he started rehearsals for the summer shows. We hear you’re gonna bring Camden on the road with you this summer. I am, yeah. I don’t wanna miss anything. He changes

so much and I don’t wanna miss a moment, so selfishly I’m gonna bring him on the road. We’re all gonna tour as a family. (My brother) Drew and I are gonna share a bus. My family will be out for a while and his family will come out for a while. The cool thing about doing it with the group again is that we’re at different times in our lives. We get to share it now with our families and with our kids, which is cool. With all those babies, is it gonna be a gigantic kid-friendly party on the bus? Well, between the three bands on this tour we have about 30 kids combined. There’s gonna be quite a few kids and quite a few nannies running around. When you reunited with the group, was it easy to pick up where you

guys left off ? It all kind of felt like it just fell back into place. It was really natural and it almost seemed like it was yesterday. That felt good. It’s been a lot of fun, and as long as we’re having fun, the rest is easy. You guys will be dancing, we hope. We will be dancing. Some people call it dancing. Other people may call it convulsing. The music’s changed a lot

over the course of the last 12 years. With this new album, I think we’ve done a good job of changing with the times, but also staying true to who we are. It’s a lot more up-tempo stuff on this record because that’s kind of where music’s at, but we’re excited to introduce everybody to it and we’re excited for people to hear the record. So kids’ music is not the final be-all, end-all of Nick Lachey’s career? (Laughs) If that were gonna be the case, I’d be fine with that. I loved making that record, but no. It’s cool to be able to do different things. The lullaby project was very different from the 98 Degrees project and very different from other solo projects.

were on your hiatus? Oh yeah, we talked all the time and we saw each other quite a few times. I saw Justin a lot more because we live in Cincinnati. We all remain very good friends. As far as the reunion goes, we always kept the door open on that. (With) timing and fitting everyone’s schedules, I think now is the time that makes the most sense.

Isla Fisher heats up this summer’s hit blockbusters Now you see her — twice. With Gatsby and Now You See Me, Fisher packs a one-two summer-movie season punch

This summer’s big movies feature Isla Fisher. getty images

Yes, that’s Isla Fisher appearing in two of the first major films of the season: the latest adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, as well as the crime caper Now You See Me. “It’s really exciting,” Fisher says. “I guess I don’t feel any pressure because I’m not the lead in either movie.” In Gatsby, she’s the ill-

fated Myrtle Wilson — logging precious, but little, screen time. In Now You See Me, Fisher plays one of a quartet of magicians who use their talents to take back money from immoral millionaires and return it to the people they bilked. The film boasts an all-star cast, including Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson. “And Mark Ruffalo is chasing after us, and Melanie Laurent and Michael Caine,” she adds in a recent interview. “(It’s) basically a lot of people nominated for Oscars — and then me, a SAG member, committing these heists.” During filming of Now You See Me, Fisher (whose first name is pronounced EYE-luh)

had a close call. “I was chained underwater,” the 37-year-old Australian-raised actress recalls. “I had a quick release on my wrists and a quick release on my feet, but the chain that was tying my wrists to my ankles ... It got looped around the bottom of the tank. I’d already been under for two-anda-half minutes, and I couldn’t get up for air. And I did have a moment of, just, ‘Oh my gosh. Not in a swimming costume. No one wants to go in a swimming costume.’” Fisher, who has two children with actor-husband Sacha Baron Cohen, seemed poised for name-above-thetitle stardom after a breakout performance in the 2005

comedy Wedding Crashers and headlining the 2010 comedy Confessions of a Shopaholic, which grossed more than $100 million worldwide. But that success did not catapult her to leadinglady stardom. Instead, she’s stayed steadily employed as a working character actor. “I naturally gravitate towards people who don’t mind getting ugly,” Fisher says. “That’s why I think I’ve not really enjoyed the ‘ingenue’ road, or at least it has not been offered to me, because I’m willing to pull a bad face, and to sweat a bit. Or glow.” The Great Gatsby opened Friday. Now You See Me opens May 31.the associated press

Is three really more stressful? New study. Weighing in on a report that claims three is the most stressful number of kids to have IT’S ALL RELATIVE Kathy Buckworth,

One of my favourite lines from The Simpsons is when Bart complains he is having the worst day of his life. “So far,” responds his unsympathetic yet correctly predictive father Homer. I liken that to a study by that suggests three is the most stressful number of children to have. A mom of three explains that, versus two kids, the stress level increases when it comes to things like crossing the street. I would agree that getting three kids to do anything in tandem is harder than getting two kids to do it. But I have four kids, and to the best of my recollection, I don’t recall sprouting an extra arm when that last child arrived. Maybe for moms of three, three is the most stressful

number of children for them to have ... so far. The study indicates mothers of more than three kids, on average, described themselves as at a lower stress level than their triumvirate sisters. It concludes that families with more than three children experience the Duggar Effect, referencing the TLC reality family with 19 children. While I am 15 short of this number, I admit older kids can, on occasion, help younger kids. But does that really offset the stress of knowing you have more children to feed, clothe, potty train, change sheets for, teach how to drive, suffer through first dates with, explain birth control to and pay post-secondary education for? According to, the average cost of raising a child in Canada is almost $245,000. Adding this expense for each child doesn’t raise your stress level? Really? I’m not saying that three kids aren’t stressful for a lot of people. It can be. Just like it is very stressful for some parents of one child, two, four, five, etc. I call it the Pitter Patter Principle. (The original Peter Principle I’m referencing states that people are promoted to a level of incompetency.)


Josh Knoller, a young professional in New York City, spent years refusing his mother’s “friend request” on Facebook before, eventually, “caving in.” Today they have an agreement: she’ll try not to make

University communications professor Paul Levinson, author of New New Media. “Facebook has been a boon to family relationships,” says Levinson. Kelly McBride, an assistant professor of communications at LaSalle University in Philadelphia, says her students who “friend” their mothers keep their Facebook pages benign, using other social media like Instagram or Twitter for

embarrassing comments, and he can delete them if she does. One in three mothers are connected with their teens over Facebook, according to the social networking giant’s review of how users selfidentify. With more than one billion Facebook users, that’s a lot of mothers and kids keeping in touch through social media, says Fordham


One study claims that families with three kids have increased stress levels. ISTOCK

Perhaps those who are lucky enough to actively choose the number of children they have sometimes also reach beyond the level of what they would see as acceptable stress. They are not incompetent in this way, of course; they just learn

when to stop. So what comes first? The proverbial chicken or the fertilized egg? The stress of having kids or the stress level of the parents prior to having them? Since we can’t give back the number of children

we had past the third one to do a truly fair comparison (I may have tried), I guess we’ll never know. KATHY BUCKWORTH IS AN AWARD WINNING WRITER. VISIT KATHYBUCKWORTH.COM OR FOLLOW KATHY ON TWITTER @KATHYBUCKWORTH.

Laying out the law: Get familiar with the field beyond the faces on TV The jury’s in. A world of opportunity awaits you in the land of the legal, but where do you successfully start your search? Ylva Van Buuren

OK, you’re addicted to law shows on TV — and if nothing new is on, you won’t mind watching the old Law & Order episodes you now know by heart. Maybe you should consider a law career. Sure, you could apply to law school, but there are other opportunities to work in the legal system that can be equally rewarding. How about becoming a law clerk or paralegal? A law clerk’s job is mostly administrative, relieving lawyers of routine duties and helping them with more complex legal work when needed.

Study says there’s more to flipping burgers than students may know Young and able. Research reveals that students who take on jobs in high school more likely to succeed

The wonders of work

“It’s really important for people to understand how they contribute to making an organization function.”

Julia furlan

Paul Harrington Drexel University labour economist

Metro World News

According to a study published by Drexel University’s Center for Labour Markets and Policy, teens who spend some time bagging groceries or cyphoning fries into happy meals have a larger shot at success throughout their career. Paul Harrington, a Drexel University labour economist and lead author of the study, says that work experience in a formal job during high school (from ages 16 to 19) correspond to a 20 to 25 per cent increase in salary for teens

Can I get you a career with that? istock

almost a decade later. In this case, a “formal” job means a gig in food service or retail for a larger company, as opposed to work like babysitting or cutting the neighbor’s grass. High

school students who work, he says, are also more likely to have a job a decade after high school than their peers. The numbers are even stronger for teen boys, Harrington says.

“I think there’s a dignity in work,” Harrington says. “It’s really important for people to understand how they contribute to making an organization function. The way you under-

stand how that works is by doing it.” The other piece of data that the study revealed is that attendance in high school is a very strong indicator of good things to come. Harrington says that having high daily attendance in school means that students have a much higher chance of graduating from college. “Woody Allen said 90 per cent of life is showing up,” Harrington says. “Turns out he was right.”

Frown-worthy findings

So what’s the bad news? The Drexel University study also found that as the economy has suffered, jobs for teens have become more difficult to come by. In the Metro Philadelphia area, for example, the study revealed that in 2000, about 44 per cent of teens between the ages of 16 and 19 had jobs. Today, that number has fallen to 25 per cent, mostly due to the lack of employment opportunities, and also to the fact that older workers are holding onto jobs longer than they have in previous decades.

series back to Boston for Game 7 on Monday. The Leafs, making their return to the post-season for the first time since 2004, became the 48th team in Stanley Cup history to rally from a 3-1 deficit to force Game 7. The only time Toronto has come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a series

was the 1942 Stanley Cup final against the Detroit Red Wings when the Leafs trailed 3-0 before reeling off four straight wins. Sunday’s win also snapped a 54-year stretch of home playoff failure against the Bruins. Toronto’s last home playoff win against Boston was March 31, 1959, when the Leafs won 3-2 in overtime. Nine straight postseason home losses followed in the decades since with Boston outscoring Toronto 38-24. On Sunday, the Bruins started well but couldn’t beat James Reimer and the Leafs took over the game as it wore on. Boston coach Claude Julien was critical of his team’s puck

management and decisionmaking. “We’ve been a Jekyll and Hyde hockey team all year and that’s what you’re seeing right now,” he said. “I think it’s important to us to bring the good Bruins team to the table for Game 7.” That goes Monday night at the TD Garden. A loss and Boston, Cup winners in 2011, will exit in the seventh game of the first round for the second year in a row. Reimer was again steady in the Toronto net, making 29 saves to earn the win.

Curry overcomes ankle worry to lead Warriors’ OT flurry NBA playoffs. Golden State and San Antonio head into Game 5 tied two games apiece His spirits down, his left ankle limp and his team’s season hanging in the balance, Stephen Curry wondered whether he could recover for the biggest game of his career until a text message popped up on his phone around 2 a.m. Saturday. Curry called back his mother, Sonya, and vented his frustrations about his latest — and most inopportune — injury setback. Finally, she spoke up to calm his concerns. “She just reminded me ... to rely on my teammates and support,” Curry said. What followed was a Mother’s Day masterpiece.

Curry scored 22 points to go with six rebounds and four assists on a bum ankle, rallying the Golden State Warriors past the San Antonio Spurs 97-87 in overtime Sunday to even the

Western Conference semifinal at two games apiece. “It seems like every time you get on a roll and feel somewhat healthy there’s a setback,” said Curry, who shot 7-for-15 from the floor, including 5-for-10 from 3-point range. “And it just tests you. It changes your routine. It changes your outlook on the game, your preparation. You’ve got to deal with the injury and the adjustments your making as a team.” Game 5 is Tuesday in San Antonio. Harrison Barnes had 26 points and 10 rebounds, Jarrett Jack added 24 points in reserve and Andrew Bogut grabbed 18 rebounds to help Golden State erase an eight-point deficit in the final five minutes of regulation. The Warriors followed that up by scoring the first nine points of overtime. The Associated Press

Tiger Woods had the last word against Sergio Garcia by winning The Players Championship on Sunday. Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring with Garcia by doing what he does best — closing out tournaments, even if he let this one turn into a tense duel over the final hour at the TPC Sawgrass. Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70. Garcia was standing on the 17th tee shot, staring across the water to an island as Woods made his par. He took aim at the flag with his wedge and hung his head when he saw the ball splash down short of the green. Then, Garcia hit another one in the water on his way to a quadruplebogey 7. He completed his stunning collapse by hitting his tee shot into the water on the 18th and making double bogey. The Associated Press

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 The cosmic pattern is slowly but surely shifting in your favor and by the end of the week the dark days will be behind you. Today you will have to deal with an emotional issue of some kind.

March 21 - April 20 Make an effort to see yourself the way others see you today. It’s great that you have such a strong self-image but sometimes it makes it hard to understand why not everyone looks at life the same way.



Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You will have to make a difficult decision either today or tomorrow and some people are sure to be disappointed. That’s not your concern. The only thing that matters is you stay true to your principles.

April 21 - May 21 The methods you have been using may be effective for you but that does not mean they are right for everyone. You will find yourself at odds with someone you work with today.



Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You may be easygoing by nature but when aroused you make a tenacious opponent. Today’s events will encourage you to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. With you on their side they might just win.

May 22 - June 21 Your heart and your head are pulling you in opposite directions and it won’t be until later in the week that you choose one approach over the other.


June 22 - July 23 Keep your wits about you as the new week begins and try to maintain a light-hearted attitude to everything that happens. Some people may be feeling a bit down but that does not mean you have to get down there with them.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You may worry that if you don’t act quickly you will miss out on an opportunity of some kind but it isn’t true. In fact the planets indicate most strongly that you should bide your time.



July 24 - Aug. 23 The best way to deal with people who annoy you is to ignore them. There is something imperious in the Leo nature and if you make out that someone does not exist no one else will believe they exist either.

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 If you have to be critical of someone today, either at home or at work, make sure you wrap up what you say in some kind of sugar coating. Not everyone has such a robust ego as you.
