Big disparities in rural, urban postsecondary funding Education. Province pledges to review equity among institutions
BRIDGE BACK TO LIFE
Oliva Fung, right, and Natalie Kruch braved rainy weather to plant an urban garden on an abandoned rail bridge over 97th Street and 105th Avenue in Edmonton on Sunday. The LIVINGbridge project saw volunteers install circular garden containers and plant ornamental and edible plants on the bridge on Saturday and Sunday.

Institutions in rural Alberta are being subsidized by the government more heavily than those in urban centres on a per-student basis, leading critics to call for better equality in a system reeling from provincial funding cuts. Data provided by Mount Royal University and verified by Metro indicates in the 2010-11 school year — the first after a freeze on postsecondary funding was announced and the latest year for which complete information was available — some institutions were receiving five times the funding others were when their overall provincial grant is divided among full-load equivalent undergraduate students.
On the top end, it appears Fort McMurray’s Keyano College was receiving $29,900 per student, while distance education-focused Athabasca University found itself on the bottom, receiving just $5,474 per student. Mount Royal also found itself on the lower end, with $9,964 per student. “You start to say, ‘Well, that looks weird,’” said Duane Anderson, the university’s vice-president for administrative services. “It starts to explain why we’re in such a difficult situation.” Elsewhere, trades-focused schools like SAIT and NAIT find themselves in the middle of the pack. However, Doug Short, faculty association head for the latter institution, said it’s worth questioning why his school’s per-student funding still amounts to just half what’s being offered to some rural campuses.
“That does need to be looked at, the equity in the system,” Short said. “Some programming is just more expensive. So, if they have unique programming, that might account for some of it.” Alberta’s advanced education ministry has pledged a full review of funding models that is likely to start in the fall, according to spokesperson Karin Campbell. Advanced Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk was not available for comment, but Campbell said he “envisions a more strategically aligned and co-ordinated Campus Alberta.” JEREMY NOLAIS/METRO IN CALGARY

City hopes to cut back on project cost overruns
The blue tiles along the edge of the platform at Bay/Enterprise Square station are being replaced with more noticeable warning tiles that will help people know when they are at the platform edge. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO
LRT system lending hand to visually impaired Bay/Enterprise Square. Tile retrofit sped up after woman’s death
• After the tile replacement is completed at Bay/Enterprise Square Station, the city will move on to University, Grandin and Corona stations.
Edmonton’s LRT system is getting a major upgrade in a bid to make visually impaired riders a little less anxious. The Bay/Enterprise Square station is currently being upgraded, but the work will spread to other locations. The city is replacing the row

are bright yellow, with a slight raised edge, says Laura Swann, who works on mobility issues with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). “It gives them somewhere that once they have reached that with their foot or their cane, they know the distance to the train,” she said. Last August, Zaidee Jensen, a 29-year-old mother of two who was visually impaired, fell to the tracks. Jensen struck her head and went into a coma. She died several days later. Swann says cases like that are constantly on the minds of visually impaired users of the
Whether it’s an additional $11.5 million for a bridge over Groat Road or nearly $20 million for the Walterdale’s replacement, city administrators are hoping that a new budget process could make price spikes a thing of the past. The city is still working out the details, but before the next capital budget in 2014, it hopes to introduce a two-step process. Currently, councillors approve projects all at once, including design work, but because the designs haven’t been completed, cost certainty can be difficult, the city says. Jodi Buska, the acting manager of client financial services, says having the detailed design complete before council approves a project will help. “It will help us, so that when we do actually come forward with the final budget, we will have a better idea of what the costs are going to be,” she said. Buska says the current process gets the city too far down the road, or bridge, before council has a chance to see a final budget. “This would hopefully give them an opportunity (to make changes) a little earlier in the process,” she said. Coun. Kerry Diotte says he will welcome the change if it puts an end to cost overruns on major projects. “We have to make them extinct like dinosaurs,” he said. “If this new process gets us to a better place, then let’s go for it.”
transit system. “There are a lot of people who use it as a daily means of transportation all around the city, and that has been a major concern,” she said. Swann says when people think of making buildings accessible, sometimes the needs of the visually impaired are overlooked. Dave Geake, director of LRT operations, says upgrades to the platform edge had been on the city’s radar, but Jensen’s death underscored the need to expedite the process. “We looked for ways that we could accelerate it and get it done,” he said.

Edmonton will be one of four Canadian cities to play host to the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. The U-20 tournament comes a year before Canada hosts the 2015 Women’s World Cup. “The FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 is another great opportunity for our country and the four host cities to welcome the world and the world’s game,” said Victor Montagliani, chair of the national organizing committee. Mayor Stephen Mandel was thrilled to hear about the city’s selection.
Humdinger. Probe of unexplained humming widens past Calgary Buzz about a mystery hum that’s confounded researchers and those who hear it has extended well beyond a Calgary neighbourhood where complainants first came forward. Victims of the so-called “Ranchlands hum” describe it as more a vibrational feeling than a noise. It has the power to keep them up at night, ruin their mood and has even led some poor souls to question their sanity. The hum is a “genuine phenomenon,” according to University of Calgary research Dr. Marcia Epstein, who’s worked in her spare time to track the elusive source for a few years. “It’s something we don’t yet understand,” she said. “They (hum hearers) are not crazy, they’re not making it up, they’re not losing their hearing.” But the problem appears no longer to be Calgaryspecific. Quoted
“They are not crazy ...” Dr. Marcia Epstein, on the Albertans hearing the ‘Ranchlands hum’
Terry Avramenko, who lives in Calgary’s Ranchlands neighbourhood, has estimated that hundreds hear a hum much like he does. Metro file
Initially, most complaints stemmed from the northwest Calgary neighbourhood of Ranchlands, and a volunteerled probe of the sound pinpointed the Bearspaw watertreatment plant as a possible source in 2011. But now complaints are popping up in other areas of Alberta, including Edmonton, and Epstein said she’s looking to form a coalition with researchers in Ontario and New Zealand to investigate similar occurrences.

“This will be a terrific buildup to our hosting of 11 matches, including the opening ceremony and bronze medal game, for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015,” he said. Matches for the U-20 tournament will be held August 5 to 24, 2014 and this will be Edmonton’s second time playing host. Richard Adams, Alberta Soccer’s executive director, said the tournament would be great for fans of the game. “This is a new opportunity for us to see the next generation of soccer players that represent the future of our sport internationally.” The Canadian Soccer Association announced the four cities ahead of Canada’s friendly Sunday against the U.S. at Toronto’s BMO Field. The CSA also announced that Canada’s senior women will play their next home game Oct. 30 in Edmonton against South Korea. Metro with files from the Canadian Press
Twitchell crime book wins big A book about Edmonton filmmaker and “Dexter Killer” Mark Twitchell was awarded Canada’s top prize in crime writing. Steve Lillebuen, a former Edmontonian who now works as a journalist in Australia and was one of Metro Edmonton’s founding staff members, won the Arthur Ellis Award for best non-fiction book for The Devil’s Cinema. The true crime book details the notorious tale of self-professed psychopath Mark Twitchell and his kill room. While Lillebuen wasn’t able to attend the awards ceremony in Toronto, he said he was thrilled when he heard he had won. “I spent years writing the book and I’m so delighted to see it’s resonating with so many readers,” he said. “I hope this prompts another round of readers to dive into this fascinating story that we’ve never seen before and may never see again.” Metro

Tax ‘amendment’ will cost insurers $1 billion GST bonanza. Owed amounts date back to a 2005 Finance Department release implemented in 2010 Canada’s insurance industry faces a $1-billion GST bill at the end of this month, thanks to a federal tax move critics say smacks of a “banana republic.” The massive tax hit applies to some financial services that insurers say were never before subject to GST. The GST now owed is retroactive seven years, back to 2005, when the federal Finance Department issued a news release saying it planned to amend tax legislation — something it didn’t get around to implementing until 2010. Critics say that apart from the body blow to the books of domestic insurers, the “massively distortive” tax grab
Finance Minister Jim Flaherty with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in March. A massive retroactive GST ruling from the Finance Department has insurers fuming. the canadian press
sends a signal to global investors that Canada is no place to do business. That message, they say, challenges any claim the Harper government is a tax-cutter and a good steward of the economy. “I have lost count of the
number of times that global tax directors have used the words ‘banana republic’ when I describe this legislation to them,” says Michael Firth, a tax partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada, and chief among the critics.
“They don’t believe it. They go, ‘You’re kidding me? Can they really do this?’” For its part, the Finance Department says it hasn’t changed GST legislation at all, but rather clarified rules that were poorly drafted when the GST was born in 1991. The slow-motion train wreck began with an obscure Tax Court of Canada ruling in 2003, in which the judge sided with insurer State Farm against the Canada Revenue Agency. The company successfully argued the GST does not apply to certain common financial transactions, and therefore it owed no money to the taxman. The Finance Department issued a statement and background document on Nov. 17, 2005, saying it planned to amend GST legislation to effectively overturn the judge’s ruling, warning the amendments would be retroactive to the date of the release.

Pistorius trial. Athlete’s family ‘shaken’ by alleged crime-scene photos Oscar Pistorius’ family said Sunday it was “shaken” by the “graphic” leaked images broadcast by a British television station that purport to show the bloodied bathroom where the Olympian fatally shot his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. In a brief statement two days before the double-amputee athlete is due back in court for a hearing ahead of his murder trial, the Pistorius family said the images shown by Sky News on Friday did not help the legal process. “We were shaken by the graphic images, leaked into the public domain this week, of the accident scene at Oscar’s house,” the family said, appearing to confirm they are from Pistorius’ home. “It has always been our plea that the legal process be allowed to run its course with integrity. The leaking of evidential material into the public domain before the court case does not advance this process.” The images have not been verified by The Associated Press or South African police. Pistorius’ family also
“We fully stand behind Oscar as he prepares to appear in court.” Oscar Pistorius’ family from a statement issued to media Sunday
expressed support for the 26-year-old athlete ahead of his court appearance Tuesday. The family said it believed the trial evidence would prove Pistorius’ claims that the shooting was an accident. Pistorius is charged with premeditated murder for the Feb. 14 death of Reeva Steenkamp. He denies the charge, saying he shot the 29-year-old model by mistake thinking she was an intruder. “As a family we fully stand behind Oscar as he prepares to appear in court this Tuesday,” the statement said. “We believe in him, love him and will support him every step of the way in what lies ahead.” Pistorius is due in court Tuesday for a hearing ahead of his murder trial. the associated press
Military creates a culture of silence: Veterans In 2010, former corporal John Lowe finished his tour in the killing fields of Kandahar. His generation of soldiers has a myriad of money and recovery programs, but checking yourself into one is known within the ranks as “spin dry.” It can be the kiss of career death for a soldier to put their hands up and say they have a problem with the horrors they’ve witnessed. “It’s the culture; the culture is totally different,” said Lowe, “One of our mottos is suffer in silence. That’s what’s honourable. That’s what we’re taught.” Lowe is part of a group of Canadian soldiers and veterans, many of them struggling with post-traumatic stress, who arrived in London Sunday after a gruelling six-day cycling ride from Paris. They took part in an event put on by the British-based charity Help for Heroes. The Canadian Press

Disaster warnings issued in central European flooding Authorities in parts of central Europe issued disaster warnings and scrambled to reinforce flood defences Sunday as rivers swelled by days of heavy rain threatened to burst their banks. Several people have died or are missing in the floods
in Germany, the Czech Republic and Switzerland since Thursday. Czech officials warned that the waters of the Vltava river could reach critical levels in Prague late Sunday. Interim Mayor Tomas Hudecek said authorities were considering whether to shut down parts of the subway network.

Russia, U.S. need to work more closely: Official The head of a U.S. congressional delegation said Sunday that its meetings in Russia showed there was “nothing specific” that could have helped prevent the Boston Marathon bombings, but that the two countries need to work

Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican congressman who led the six-member delegation, described discussions with Russian parliamentarians and security officials as productive.

Metro in Saskatoon
Three of North America’s best-known storm chasers were among 13 killed after a tornado hit the El Reno area of Oklahoma City during rush hour on Friday. Tim Samaras, called the Wayne Gretzky of storm chasing, his son Paul Samaras and storm chaser Carl Young were all killed when an EF3 tornado, with winds up to 265 km/h, barrelled into the area. Saskatchewan tornado hunter Greg Johnson was chasing the same tornado that killed the three men. “Is it dangerous? It sure is. We’re putting ourselves into the danger zone, but the thing is, we have very sophisticated technology and we have a really good
understanding of how storms behave, so this is a very rare incidence,” said Johnson. Johnson said the tornado made a 90-degree left turn and headed north in a pattern that he called “almost unprecedented.” “We got caught in the same storm and we were basically in a different location, but in the same situation as Tim,” said Johnson. He said Tim Samaras was one of the best storm chasers in the field, adding he had a chance to visit with Samaras and his team two weeks ago in Texas. “When you talk with somebody with as much experience, knowledge and research under his belt ... you just sit and listen,” said Johnson.

Two Alberta seniors homes trying to get rid of bedbugs for months ‘Very hard to kill’. Alberta Health Services says time taken to deal with bugs not a sign of severe infestation Two seniors homes in Alberta are being treated for bedbugs, but health officials say there’s no reason for concern beyond the “ick” factor. Staff at the Pemmican Lodge and Black Rock Terrace in Lethbridge have been dealing with the itchy insects for the last few months. While bedbugs are for the most part harmless, the stealthy insects are hard to detect and even more difficult to kill, said Lynne Navratil, supervisor of safe-built environments for Alberta Health Services. Navratil said there’s no doubt that bedbug infesta-
Bedbugs have popped up in some unusual places • Four buses in Edmonton were fumigated this year after reports of bugs. • Bugs were spotted at courthouses in Vancouver and St. John’s, N.L. • Infestations have nothing to do with cleanliness, but they are more likely to occur when there’s clutter.

tions have become more prevalent. Public health officials deal with complaints
regularly. “When I started as a health inspector 17 years ago, we really didn’t deal with bed-
bugs a lot,” Navratil said. But with the public travelling so much these days,
stopping the spread is nearly impossible, she said.
• After clutter is removed and everything cleaned, it usually takes two treatments of heat and pesticide to remove the pests. The first kills any live bedbugs. The second is necessary for any eggs.

The next industrial revolution is coming to a printer near you Invisalign, a San Jose company, uses 3D printing to make each mouthful of customized, transparent braces. Mackenzies Chocolates, a confectioner in Santa Cruz, uses a 3D printer to pump out chocolate moulds. And earlier this year, Cornell University researchers used a 3D printer, along with injections of a special collagen gel, to create a human-shaped ear. Once a science-fiction fantasy, three-dimensional printers are popping up everywhere from the desks of home hobbyists to Air Force drone research centres. The machines, generally the size of a microwave oven and costing $400 US to more than $500,000 US, extrude layer upon layer of plastics or other materials, including metal, to create 3D objects with moving parts. Users are able to make just about anything they like: iPad stands, guitars, jewelry, even

• Starting in June, office supply chain Staples plans to be the first major retailer to supply 3D printers with “the Cube,” a plug-in device that uses 16 colours and costs $1,299 US. • In September, the smallest and cheapest 3D printer on the market, a printing pen called the 3Doodler that’s priced from $50 US, is due to start shipping.
guns. But experts warn this cool innovation could soon turn controversial — because of safety concerns but also the potential for the technology to alter economies that rely on manufacturing. “We’re on the verge of the next industrial revolution, no doubt about it,” said Dartmouth College business professor Richard D’Aveni. “In 25 years, entire industries are going to disappear. Countries relying on mass manufacturing are going to find themselves with no revenues and no jobs.” The Associated Press
“We believe that 3D printing is fundamentally changing the manufacturing ecosystem in its entirety — how and where products are made and by whom.” Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of New York-based Shapeways, an online company that makes and sells 3D printed products designed by individuals.
What’s the advantage of 3D printers? On ground, sea or air, when parts break, new ones can be made on the spot, and even the tools to install them can be made, eliminating the need for staging parts in warehouses around the world, said Jeff DeGrange, vice-president of Direct Digital Manufacturing at Stratasys Inc., currently the industry leader in a field of about 50 3D printer companies. “We’re going to see innovation happening at a much higher rate, introduction of products at a much higher rate,” said DeGrange. “We live in an on-demand world now, and we’ll see production schedules are going to be greatly compressed.” Airplane mechanics could print a replacement part on the runway. A dishwasher repairman could make a new gasket in his service truck. A surgeon could print a knee implant custom-designed to fit a patient’s body. But the military, D’Aveni said, is likely to be among the first major users of 3D printers, because of the urgency of warfare.
Temple to the Stars gets a facelift A man takes a photo of the interior of Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles. From its very beginnings, the imposing marble edifice with the glistening copper dome rising 100 feet above the edge of downtown has been a major Hollywood production. During the Golden Era, movie moguls including Louis B. Mayer helped bankroll the cavernous synagogue, and it became known as the Temple to the Stars. Now, it’s getting a $150 million US reboot — just in time for summer release. In the coming weeks, the sanctuary’s ornate front doors will open for the first time in nearly two years, allowing the public to see a restoration that includes refurbished murals depicting the history of Judaism by the great film artist Hugo Ballin.

Ebook price-fixing. Apple, U.S. Justice Department to square off in antitrust case In a civil case where the words of Steve Jobs play prominently, the U.S. government and Apple Inc. are set to square off over allegations that Apple conspired with the country’s largest book publishers to make consumers pay more for electronic books. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote is scheduled to begin hearing the price-fixing case Monday in federal court in Manhattan. The trial stems from an antitrust lawsuit brought last year by the Justice Department, which accused Apple of helping hatch the scheme at a meeting with publishers in 2009 as it was preparing to launch the iPad. Its purpose was to force Seattle-based Amazon.com, the marketer of Kindle ebook readers, to raise the $9.99 US price Policy change

What plagues the puffin? East coast seabirds dying of starvation This Atlantic puffin is seen with a beak crammed with fish to feed its young. The population is at risk in the Gulf of Maine. The comical-looking seabirds have been dying of starvation and losing body weight, possibly because of shifting fish populations as ocean temperatures rise, according to scientists.

Butterfish too fat to feed to the kids
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE
Instead of feeding their young primarily herring, puffin parents were giving them large numbers of butterfish, a more southerly fish that’s becoming more abundant in the Gulf or perhaps more accessible to seabirds because they’ve moved higher up in the water column. But the chicks ended up starving to death because the butterfish were too big and round for them to swallow says Steve Kress, director of the National Audubon Society’s seabird restoration program. Piles of uneaten butterfish were found next to some of the dead birds. The amount of herring in the puffin’s diet has been falling by about five per cent a year. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Melvin plays an entertainer at a brothel falsely accused by “The Man.” Mario plays his younger self in a fairly graphic introductory scene where he loses his virginity to a prostitute. Thanks, dad!
Even though what was shot very nearly qualifies as child pornography, it apparently wasn’t traumatic. Mario grew up idolizing and often working with his father. He became a filmmaker himself, making New Jack City and Baadasssss! — an account of the making of his father’s pioneering black cinema classic. Mario even stars as his wildly charismatic, cigar-chomping, lady-killer pop.
Ryan is a charismatic con man in the Depression-era South who collects fraudulent fees from rubes for bibles. Tatum plays a little girl who may be his daughter. She proves a grifting prodigy.
Ryan, often a wooden rent-a-hunk, was atypically alive and hilarious in this Peter Bogdanovich comedy. Ditto, for that matter, Tatum, who became the youngest-ever Oscar winner. She did The Bad News Bears but struggled through an adult career. Ryan, meanwhile, did two more films of major note (Barry Lyndon and The Driver), but soon returned to crap films. Their relationship became strained. Tatum alleged that Ryan hit on her at Farah Fawcett’s funeral.
Henry is a crotchety, terminally sweary old-timer who is estranged from his daughter, played by Jane. This isn’t that far from the truth, except that Henry wasn’t married to Katharine Hepburn.
The two were famously estranged, despite him being, like her, a liberal — back when such a thing wasn’t cool. The film helped them patch things up, just as what happens in the film. Henry died soon after winning his first Oscar, which Jane accepted on his behalf.
Charlie is an upstart who gets associated with the wrong scene, while his father scowls. They also acted in this movie together.
The two would reunite, for about 10 seconds, in Hot Shots Part Deux, in a scene that parodies Apocalypse Now: Passing by each other on ships, they simultaneously stand and proclaim, “Loved you in Wall Street!”
Sly is a slow mumblemouth who solved the Cold War, but is still stuck penniless in a miserable South Philly neighbourhood because his brother-in-law is an idiot. Sage is his resentful son who gets an earring.
Sage took over the role of Rocky Jr. from someone actually named Rocky Krakoff. He didn’t get great reviews, but neither did the film. Still, he acted again with his dad in Daylight, and appears in Vincent Gallo’s Promises Written in Water, which Gallo won’t let anyone see. Last year, Sage died of a heart attack at 36 years old.
Jolie is a buxom archaeologist who does all the things that Indiana Jones can’t, like have breasts. Voight is her dead father who she meets in an alternate dimension.
Jolie and Voight have had a bumpy relationship. They reconnected as her career exploded, then “broke up” again, then came back together after her mother’s death. Still, Voight said he found out about her double mastectomy with everyone else.

Downward spiral leads to rehab for Hoffman: source
Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman quietly completed a 10-day stint in rehab late last week to address a reported growing drug problem that topped out with the actor allegedly snorting heroin, according to E! News. Hoffman’s problems are said to have started last
year with prescription pill abuse and escalated from there, though sources say he only took heroin for about a week before checking himself into a treatment facility after recognizing his downward spiral. “He recognized it and took care of it,” says the source.

Re-use plastic pill container as sunscreen bottle
Use the toy trick when travelling with a crying baby When travelling with your infant who screams because he or she hates the car, make sure you have a pile of soft toys stacked up beside you on the passenger seat. At red
lights or stop signs you can reach your arm back, and drop a new soft toy on his or her lap (or head — it’s hard to have good aim, that’s why they’re soft.) This will distract your baby long enough for you to drop another new toy at the next stop sign or red light. It’s like magic, I swear. JEN WARMAN/

Her body is her body, and it’s meant to dance, not quit Staggering statistic. Six out of 10 girls avoid activities because they don’t like their bodies. We as parents must help to lower that number ALI MARTELL
I took ballet for 10 years. From the time I was two years old until I was 12, I spent several days a week perfecting my pliés and pirouettes and arabesques and revoltades. I might have even been good, too, but I’ll never know. Because I quit. Because I was a stupid preteenager. It was too hard, too time-consuming. And there was a little not-allowed-to-wearunderpants-underneath-theleotard situation. But mostly, I quit because of my body. At age 12, my body began changing — it was too large in some places and too small in other places. I was, like many girls are before they grow into their women-bodies, the bodies that will one day

grow their babies — a wee bit awkward. Apparently, and unfortunately, I’m not alone in this. Six out of 10 girls avoid activities because they feel badly about the way they look. When my oldest daughter was born and I heard that lovely “It’s a girl!” announcement, the first thing I said was, “God, I can’t wait to put her in a tutu.” And I stayed true to my word. She was in a tutu almost before she could speak. At 12, she is my mini me.
She looks almost exactly like me; she’s built almost exactly like me. Once, just once, we had the conversation I worried about the minute I became the mama to a daughter: “Mama, I hate my body.” “What?” “My friends are all so tall and thin. I am short and stout, like the little teapot.” “We are all built differently, my love. You are the perfect you that you can be.” “Hrm. I don’t know if you
are right.” “Do you exercise?” “Of course. I bike and swim and dance and play basketball and walk to and from school and jump on the trampoline and I’m thinking of trying out for track and field.” “Do you eat a lot of foods that are good for you?” “Of course. I love peppers and broccoli and green beans and artichokes and asparagus.” “Then that is all that matters. If you treat your body the
way it should be treated, your body will grow into what it should be — a perfect woman.” I don’t want her to quit like I did. She’s so good. Six out of 10 girls avoiding activities. Six out of 10! I don’t want my daughter to be one of the six. Research shows, though, that when girls have positive role models at home — often mom — they tend to be less likely to let their anxieties get the better of them. Her body does amazing things — she can pop and lock and shake and shimmy and whatever those young kids are doing these days. And there are moments when she’s on that dance floor, and I’m sure that she’s flying. I want her to know that bodies come in all shapes and sizes. It’s my job as her mother to remind her of this and to not make the same mistakes that kept me from pursuing something I loved, something I could have been amazing at. Her body is her body, and it’s a body that’s meant to dance. To fly. To be celebrated. To wear a tutu if she wants. Not to quit.

10 sure-fire ways to know you’re a parent This list is here for clarity, because I’m assuming a lot of you were wondering this very question: “Am I? Am I really a parent?” 10) You’ve spat on your finger to wipe food/dirt/poo off of your child’s face. 9) You’ve had saliva, urine, and feces sprayed/mashed/
smeared on you at some point or another. 8) At any moment, you could cry. You never know when, but it could happen. Like. Right. Now. “They’re so beautiful.” 7) At any moment, you could rage. Like. Right. Now. 6) In your WORK bag, you find
the strangest stuff: a soother, a crushed juice box, half a crayon, a lid to something, a doll, a mini truck, a sandwich crust, rocks from the garden...
“I’m sorry for judging you other parent that I judged that one time...” (and let’s be honest, it was more than just one time). You now have that kid.
5) You see danger around every corner. And if it’s a sharp corner — you pad it.
3) You have 1,756 photos on your phone and 1,752 of them are of your child/children
4) You do shit you never thought you’d do, and think,
2) Your dog (a.k.a your first baby) is terribly neglected: he
needs a haircut, probably has fleas and only gets fed if you remember. 1) And the number one way you can tell that you’re a parent? Your heart always aches with a love so heavy that you finally understand why parents do the crazy things they do for their children. JEN WARMAN/YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

Of jitters and genders. Who is more prone to panic at a job interview? Coming down with a case of the jitters during a job interview is hardly surprising, but is anxiety experienced in these high-pressure settings greater for men or women? A University of Guelph study found there was no difference between males and females when it came to selfreported and interviewer-rated anxiety. However, there was a gender divide when it came to interview performance — and males were affected more. PhD candidate Amanda Feiler first started ruminating on the subject of interview anxiety while working on her master’s thesis, which was around the time of the recession. She recalled thinking of those who would be losing their jobs and the pressures they’d be facing in subsequent interviews. “One of the big questions that we had with my thesis was in terms of gender differences with interview anxiety,” Feiler, 27, said in a phone interview. “Do men experience more anxiety than women, or is it vice versa? And is the effect worse for men than it is for women?” As it turns out, it’s a bit of both, according to a study coauthored by Feiler and Deborah Powell, an assistant professor in the psychology department

at the University of Guelph. Researchers recruited 125 participants — 43 males and 82 females — aged between 18 and 22, who were undergraduate co-op students. As part of their course credit, they were required to take part in mock interviews for a position within one of 15 organizations where they were interested in submitting applications, and were assigned an interviewer employed by the campus career centre. The interviews were recorded and included both unstructured and semi-structured behavioural questions, starting
from the general “tell me a little about yourself”-type queries to the more specific, such as how they resolved a situation with an angry customer. Both the interviewers and interviewees were asked to rate the anxiety levels of candidates. “What we actually found is that there were no gender differences between men and women in terms of their selfreported and interviewer-reported anxiety, but that men suffered greater impairments in terms of interview performance than anxious females did,” Feiler said. the canadian press

You may claim that your job — or your boss — is killing you, and the truth is, it could actually be harming you. Poor lunch decisions when you’re on the go, uncomfortable chairs and germy work stations might be taking a toll on your immune system. With a few thoughtful workplace changes, though, you can make your office a place of health and not harm. (Unfortunately, we can’t help you with your boss.) If you work in an office, you probably spend the majority of your day at your desk. Make sure it isn’t a breeding ground
Put the “work” in workout
Find ways to sneak a little exercise into your workday • Get your blood flowing with a few lunges or heel lifts at your work station. • If you’re shy about the desk workout routine, burn calories more discreetly by parking farther away from the building, or opting for the stairs rather than the elevator. • Or just go for a walk during your lunch break.
for bacteria. “Sanitize your workspace,” suggests life coach Stacia Pierce of Ultimate Lifestyle Enterprises. “Keep disinfectant wipes near to wipe down your mouse, keyboard and phone.”
Pierce also suggests getting fresh air by eating lunch outside whenever possible. Kathy Gruver, a health and wellness practitioner, agrees. “Get outside for fresh air and sunlight, which can help that after lunch feeling of sleepiness,” says Gruver. “Add in exercise and stretching throughout the day. We are still when waiting for things to load, fax, and copy. This is the perfect time to stretch and move the body.” You might be surprised which careers offer the healthiest lifestyles. According to Leslie Caccamese, director of strategic marketing and research at Great Place to Work, grocery clerks are often in good shape. “At Whole Foods, team members are educated on healthy eating so they can share that information with their customers,” says Caccamese. “Team members also get an extra discount at Whole Foods stores for maintaining healthy biometric standards.”

What’s black and sugary and delicious all over? Rice pudding Judith Finlayson professes a love for the taste and texture of rice, whether it’s brown, red or Thai black sticky rice. Though the cookbook author hasn’t been able to duplicate a sweet concoction of mangoes and sticky rice she sampled while travelling in Thailand, this recipe for black sticky rice pudding is one of her favourites and she has included it in her most recent cookbook, The Complete Gluten-Free Whole Grains Cookbook. “It is so easy and so good.” Thai black sticky rice is available in Asian markets. If desired, you can cook the rice in your rice cooker on the brown rice setting. The recipe calls for mangoes, but other fruits like strawberries, kiwifruit or peaches are also tasty. This dessert is suitable for those following a vegan food plan.

Doctor that dessert and give your ice cream a makeover Sometimes it takes the mind of an eight-year-old boy to come up with a brilliant idea. At least when it comes to ice cream. My son and I had just left a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop where we’d snarfed down all sorts of colourful and creative flavours like Americone Dream (vanilla with fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and caramel) and Phish Food (chocolate with marshmallow, caramel and fudge fish). And then he got really quiet for a moment, which generally is just a pre-storm calm. “We need to make our ice cream and sell it this summer,” Parker began with rapid-fire excitement. Except that neither I nor most parents have the time (nor kids the patience) to truly make ice cream from scratch. And as my son had so wonderfully demonstrated, the fun isn’t in making the ice cream base, but in testing all manner of whacky-delicious things you can flavour it with.
Rules • Start with quality ice cream in basic flavours (vanilla, chocolate, mint, coffee, etc.) • Choose mix-ins that either are or can be cut or broken into bite-size pieces • Go for contrast with your mix-ins, something crunchy (such as pretzels) with something soft (such as marshmallow) • Think beyond sweet (potato chips, corn chips, peanuts, cashews, wasabi peas, etc.) • Don’t let the ice cream soften too much. Aim for soft serve consistency, then add your mix-ins
The solution? Doctored ice cream. Using the above instructions, do the best you can to create your favourite flavours. Mine and my son’s were Rice Crispies Treat ice cream

Kuchar wins 2nd title of the year
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Stewart back on winning track Tony Stewart made a late outside pass on Juan Pablo Montoya and held on Sunday at Dover International Speedway to snap a 30-race winless streak. Stewart hadn’t even had a top-five finish this season and was stuck in 20th in the points standings. He took the lead with the pass with three laps left in the 400-mile race. Stewart hadn’t won on the concrete mile track since he swept both Cup races in 2000. Seven-time Dover winner Jimmie Johnson appeared to have the car to beat, but jumped a restart and had to serve a passthrough penalty. Jeff Gordon was third, followed by Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
QB vows to play the safety dance Matt Nichols will battle Mike Reilly for the role of the Eskimos’ starting quarterback. THE CANADIAN PRESS FILE
CFL. Eskimos’ Nichols insists he won’t take unwarranted risks Matt Nichols knows the key to becoming the Edmonton Eskimos’ No. 1 quarterback might mean playing a little less like, well, Matt Nichols. Nichols and newcomer Mike Reilly formally began their competition for the top job Sunday as the Eskimos opened their 2013 training camp at Commonwealth Stadium. Nichols, a career backup,
showed promise in spot play for Edmonton in 2012 before a gruesome ankle injury left him writhing in pain on the floor of Toronto’s Rogers Centre in last year’s CFL East Division semifinal — his leg pointing north, his ankle trending south. Months earlier, Nichols was concussed when he led with his head scrambling for a first down against Hamilton, leaving him struggling to find his way off the field. Nichols said when the situation calls for it he’s still going to lead with his chin, but he’s going to be smart about it. “I usually don’t try and take linebackers head on,” said the
“For me it was never a question of whether I would succeed or not. I just wanted the opportunity.” Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly
26-year-old. “But some of the situations I was in last year — thrown into games late when we were down by a lot — I felt the need to try and spark the team a little bit. “It’s a long season, (but) if
it’s the end of a game and it’s third and five and I need an extra yard for a first down I’m going to do anything I can to get that first down. Earlier in the game I’ll probably play it a little bit more safe.” Eskimo head coach Kavis Reed said the discretion of a hook slide can sometimes be the better part of valour. “(Nichols) is a young man that is hell bent on trying to make the play so that his team can be better off for it, but we want him to have longevity in this league and we are hopeful that he can preserve himself more,” said Reed.

Red, white and blues: Canada foiled again by U.S.
Canadian captain Christine Sinclair and American Ali Krieger chase the ball during their friendly in Toronto on Sunday. The U.S. won 3-0. DAVID COOPER/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE
It’s been 10 months since the United States women’s soccer team delivered a dagger into the hearts of Canadians at the London Olympics. It was clear Sunday that the wound is still fresh. The cheeky BMO Field fans in Toronto loudly counted off every American goal kick. They booed when Canadianborn striker Sydney Leroux scored and then popped her American jersey at them. Alex Morgan scored twice and Leroux notched the third as the world No. 1-ranked United States defeated Canada
3-0 in a friendly that was anything but. “Maybe not the classiest of moves,” Canada’s captain Christine Sinclair said of Leroux’s gesture. “She scored on us, and an individual can
do what they like. I probably wouldn’t have done the same, but we move on.” The game — billed as “The Rematch” — marked the first meeting between the North American rivals since Canada’s heartbreaking 4-3 loss to the U.S. in the Olympic semifinals. The Olympic semifinal turned on a controversial free kick, awarded when Norwegian referee Christina Pedersen determined Canada’s goalkeeper Erin McLeod took longer than the allowable six seconds to put the ball back into play.

Matt Kuchar rolled in one last birdie to win the Memorial by two shots and join Tiger Woods as the only multiple winners on the PGA Tour this year. Kuchar was challenged briefly at the turn by Kyle Stanley, and then late Sunday when Kevin Chappell birdied three of his last four holes. Kuchar only needed to two-putt from 20 feet for the win, and he made the putt for a 4-under 68. Kuchar captured the Match Play Championship in February. Tiger Woods closed with a 72 and finished 20 shots behind, his largest deficit since 1996.

Blackhawks make Quick work of humbled Kings NHL playoffs. Absence of Mike Richards hurts L.A. offence as Chicago takes 2-0 hold of series Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus scored on consecutive shots in the second period, and the Chicago Blackhawks chased goalie Jonathan Quick on their way to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. Andrew Shaw and Brent Seabrook also scored as the rolling Blackhawks grabbed a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series with their fifth consecutive victory. Patrick Sharp added two assists, and Corey Crawford made 29 saves in another solid performance.
League fines Hibbert $75K for post-game slur Indiana Pacers centre Roy Hibbert was fined $75,000 US on Sunday by the NBA for using a gay slur and cursing during his news conference after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Hibbert also apologized for the comments. “While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA,” commissioner David Stern said in a statement. After Saturday night’s win, Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defence on Miami’s LeBron James with “no homo,” a phrase that implies fear of appearing gay. He also called reporters an offensive term. Game 7 will be played Monday night in Miami.

Game 3 is Tuesday night at Los Angeles, where the Kings have won 14 consecutive games, dating to the regular
season. The Kings also lost their first two games of the playoffs at St. Louis before winning four straight to eliminate the Blues in the first round. Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli scored for Los Angeles, but the Kings struggled to score while playing without Mike Richards, who was scratched because of an undisclosed upper-body injury. The defending Stanley Cup champions have 29 goals in 15 post-season games. The Associated Press
