Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes congratulate former Blue Jay Carlos Delgado, who was inducted into the club’s Level of Excellence at Rogers Centre ahead of Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. The 41-year-old Delgado holds the Blue Jays’ all-time records in home runs, doubles, RBIs, walks and slugging percentage. More Jays coverage, page 21.

As her compatriot Adele would say, she could have had it all. Tea. Crumpets. Paper tiaras. If only Kate Middleton had accepted the invitation to give birth in Oshawa. “Dear Kate, are you looking to avoid the hoopla outside St. Mary’s?” the Facebook message from Lakeridge Health, sent last Friday, began, referring to the London hospital where hordes of reporters are expectantly camped. “We’ve got brand new rooms ready for you and we treat every newborn like a little
prince or princess.” The Oshawa hospital, which boasts the motto “We love babies,” even signed off with a confident “See you soon.” Since then, radio silence. “We didn’t get any word back, unfortunately,” said Lakeridge spokesperson Aaron Lazarus, tongue planted gently in
cheek, perhaps. “But I’m sure she’s thinking about it.” They’re certainly thinking about her. Whenever Kate gives birth — and the regal due date was reportedly July 19 — Lakeridge will be ready. Crumpets and jam will be served. And staff are preparing to compile a Facebook album of all the “princes and princesses” sharing a birthday with the Prince or Princess of Cambridge. As for the tiaras befitting any newborn royal, “we’re on the lookout for ones that are the right size,” said Lazarus. “We might just have to make them out of paper.” torstar news service

Kasia Briegmann-Samson wants the investigation into her husband’s cycling death reopened. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE FILE
Kasia Briegmann-Samson was stunned when police told her they were only charging Miguel Oliveira, 23, the alleged driver of the minivan that hit her husband Tom Samson, with failing to remain at the scene of an accident that caused death. Months later, after feeling “dragged through the mud,” and frustrated their questions were going unanswered because the matter was “before the courts,” the grief-stricken family hired prominent crim-

Richard White. Detained ‘Integrity’. TTC launches dead man finally home whistleblower program After an excruciatingly long month, Bernice White will finally get to say a proper goodbye to her dead son. The body of Richard White, 44, arrived in Toronto Saturday night after being shipped from Cebu, Philippines. To White’s family, it marked the bittersweet end of a long battle with a funeral
home in the country, which they say had been demanding increasing sums before repatriating his body. The Holland Landing, Ont. native was found lifeless and covered in blood in the hallway of a modest hotel in Cebu on June 20. The cause of his death is still unknown. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE
The TTC is trying to root out internal fraud and theft through the launch of a new whistleblower program that will allow its 13,000 employees to anonymously report unethical or illegal behaviour by coworkers or TTC contractors. Transit workers will be notified Monday of the new $33,000 “Integrity” program
whereby they can write, phone or email their suspicions of wrongdoing to ClearView Strategic Partners, a Toronto consultant group, to trigger an investigation. Spokesman Brad Ross denied the impetus for the new program was the January firing of eight transit enforcement officers. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE
Michael Bryant spoke candidly at Saturday night’s TEDxKingStreetWest about how his tumultuous journey up to this point has allowed him to make peace with what little control people have over their own successes and failures, and how others can learn from his experiences. Less than four years ago, the former Ontario MPP’s descent began with a 28-second altercation that led to cyclist Darcy Allan Sheppard’s death and ended with Bryant losing his job, reputation and marriage. The incident was detailed exhaustingly throughout the media, a court case that ended in Bryant’s acquittal, and his memoir, 28 Seconds, released in August of last year. But the bottom line, he said, isn’t about his story. “The great tragedy that night is that a man died.” Bryant, who now works with Ishkonigan, a consulting firm that works with Indigenous communities, said he was drawn to the TEDx event by its theme, Redefining Failure and Success. “My fear of failure defined success.... it was a selfish success. Selfless success is my salvation,” he said. After his presentation, he told Metro he hasn’t ruled out returning to politics, but he’s concerned about disrupting the lives of his two young sons following the turmoil of the past four years. “I see someone like (Premier) Kathleen Wynne, every 15 minutes of her life are planned out for her,” he said. “I have a real life right now.”

One-time NHL hopeful now a rising golfer RBC Canadian Open. Rookie Roger Sloan is one of more than 150 players competing Being the true Canadian he is, Merritt, B.C.’s Roger Sloan says he’d probably be playing in the NHL right now if he hadn’t been sidetracked by his fascination with golf. But from the moment he took his first swing, to scoring his very first birdie, he was hooked. “When I played hockey, I could go out and shoot four, five goals, but if the team lost, you left the arena feeling disappointed and discouraged,” he says in a phone interview. “Whereas if I go out and shoot four, five birdies, I walk away from the golf course feeling like I accomplished something.” One club set and 15 years of hard work later, the 26-year-old rookie now finds himself competing amongst the best on his first official Web.com Tour. Sloan is set to battle more than 150 players at the RBC Canadian Open for the $5.6 million purse this week at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville. Sloan aspires to emulate his idols Adam Scott and Steve B.C.’s Roger Sloan, a competitor in the upcoming RBC Canadian Open, scored Stricker. “Guys that bring their his personal best last week at the Utah Championship Open, tying in for lunchbox course WJ _ 6 7 9 8 _ M e t r o . p d f P a g e 1 7 / 1 9 / 1 3 , 8to: the 2 2 golfA M seventh place with four sub-70 rounds, and is doing well at the Midwest every day, put in an honest Classic this weekend.

After missing the cut for seven games in a row, Sloan, now on the final stretch of the tour, had to find a way to recover in order to place within the top 75 and to qualify for the season’s final four events. But Sloan believes it’s all part of the process. “I was kind of delighted to struggle a little bit,” he says. “You learn a lot about yourself when you face adversity.”
Well, hot dog! Honest Ed’s celebrates 65th year It was part celebration and part bittersweet nostalgia for the crowd that flocked to Honest Ed’s on Sunday to mark the iconic bargain centre’s 65th birthday. A week after news broke that the Bathurst and Bloor property is up for sale for $100 million, Honest Ed’s celebrated six and a half decades of business with giveaways, free hotdogs, personalized signs, a magic show and, of course, more bargains.
David Mirvish welcomed the crowd and presented Toronto police Chief Bill Blair with a donation for the Widows and Orphans Fund, an annual Honest Ed’s tradition. Coun. Mike Layton also joined the celebration and spoke about growing up just around the corner from the landmark store. “Some of my earliest memories are of getting lost here,” he told the crowd. “There’s truly no place like this in Toronto.” TORSTAR news service
“I just have to focus one shot at a time, and let the results take care of themselves.” Roger Sloan One lesson he learned was that besides ability and talent, what impacts athletes’ games the most is the mind. “When I got this ... I was afraid to make mistakes and I was playing overly cautious, really avoiding disaster.” Sloan says he now has a new attitude. Now ranked 85th on the money list, there’s still a few tournaments left before the season ends Aug. 25. But the new Sloan isn’t feeling the pressure. For now, he says he’ll be taking it all in stride.

too much to overcome. “Detroit is an extreme case of problems that have afflicted every major old industrial city in the U.S.,” said Thomas Sugrue, author of The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit and a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Staggering under as much as $20 billion in unpaid bills, Detroit surrendered Thursday, filing the single largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. In 1950, Detroit’s population peaked at more than 1.8 million. But by that time, the auto industry had started to seek refuge from Detroit’s powerful unions in other states and overseas. The job hemorrhaging continued as Japan gobbled up more of the market. But Detroit’s unravelling can’t be blamed solely on the city’s reliance on one industry. “I think it was inevitable because the politicians in Detroit were always knocking the can forward, not confronting the issues, buying off public emEconomic action plan

Tens of thousands of blacks migrated to Detroit in the late 1940s and early 1950s, seeking a foothold in the middle class. And between 1945 and 1965, Sugrue says there were more than 200 racial incidents of whites attacking blacks. The migration of blacks into Detroit was followed by an exodus of white residents. “The racial divisions between the city and the suburbs ... (created) an us vs. them mentality,” Sugrue said. “There’s very little political will ... by suburbanites ... to provide financial support.” The Associated Press Cabinet shuffle

Volunteers told to pay attention to strange smells and plastic bags after suspect arrested Searchers rummaging through vacant houses in a neighbourhood where three bodies were found wrapped in plastic bags should be prepared to find one or two more victims, the police chief of a Cleveland suburb said Sunday.

A disturbing trend in a quiet city It’s the third recent highprofile case in the Cleveland area that involves missing women. In May, three women who separately vanished a decade ago were found captive in a run-down house. Ariel Castro, a former school-bus driver, has pleaded not guilty to nearly 1,000 counts of kidnap, rape and other crimes. In 2009, Anthony Sowell was arrested after a woman escaped from his house and said she had been raped there. Police found the mostly nude bodies of 11 women throughout the home. Sowell’s victims ranged in age from 24 to 52. All were recovering or current drug addicts, and most died of strangulation; some had been decapitated, and others were so badly decomposed that coroners couldn’t say with certainty how they died.

Two U.S. jets ‘bomb’ Great Barrier Reef Aborted mission. Four practice bombs dropped away from coral to minimize possible damage, navy said. None exploded Two American fighter jets dropped four unarmed bombs Ban on veils
into Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park last week when a training exercise went wrong, the U.S. navy said, angering environmentalists. The two AV-8B Harrier jets launched from aircraft carrier USS Bonhomme Richard each jettisoned an inert practice bomb and an unarmed laser-guided explosive bomb into the World Heritage-listed marine park off the coast of
Queensland state on Tuesday, the U.S. 7th Fleet said. The jets had intended to drop the ordnances on the Townshend Island bombing range, but aborted the mission when controllers reported the area was not clear of hazards. The pilots conducted the emergency jettison because they were low on fuel and could not land with their bomb load, the navy said. The
emergency happened during the biennial joint training exercise Talisman Saber, which brings together U.S. and Australian military personnel over three weeks. The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest network of coral structures, is rich in marine life and stretches more than 3,000 kilometres along Australia’s northeast coast. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Archaeologists from Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Israel’s Antiquities Authority said their find, a large fortified complex west of Jerusalem at a site called Khirbet Qeiyafa, is the first palace of the biblical king ever to be discovered.

Syria. Russian leaders fear the return of extremists who left to fight in civil war The leader of a restive province in Russia’s Caucasus Mountains says local Islamic militants are fighting alongside rebels in Syria and could further destabilize their home region when they return. Ramazan Abdulatipov, the acting president of the province of Dagestan, wrote on his website Sunday that the “export of extremists” should be prevented by making it hard for militants to leave Russia. “These people go there and they will come back tomorrow with the backing of international extremist and terrorist organizations,” Abdulatipov said during a meeting with local officials Friday. Andrei Konin, the head of the regional branch of Russia’s Federal Security Service — the main KGB suc-

Social media hack may expose rebels Syrian state television claims that a pro-government group has hacked into two social messaging networks. Such a hack could expose Syrian rebels and other activists who depend on the networks to publicize army crackdowns and communicate with each other. Landlines and cellphones are believed to be tapped in Syria. State TV says the social networking site Tango was the latest victim of the Syrian Electronic Army, a group that supports President Bashar Assad. Tango confirmed in a statement that it had experienced “cyber intrusion that resulted in a brief, unauthorized access.” The Associated Press

Over 100 cities cry, ‘Justice for Trayvon’ Outrage. Protesters demand civil-rights charges, an end to stand-your-ground Crowds chanted “Justice! Justice!” as they rallied in dozens of U.S. cities Saturday, urging authorities to change self-defence laws and press federal civil-rights charges against a former neighbourhood watch leader found not guilty in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager. The National Action Net-
work, led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, organized the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies and vigils on Saturday outside federal buildings in more than 100 cities one week after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman in the February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida. In addition to pushing the Justice Department to investigate civil-rights charges against Zimmerman, Sharpton told supporters in New York that he wants to see a rollback of stand-your-ground self-defence laws.
Despite an outcry from civil-rights groups, a call for close examination by the president and even a 1960sstyle sit-in at the Florida governor’s office, there is unlikely to be change to any of the stand-yourground laws in the U.S. • Zimmerman didn’t invoke stand-your-ground in court, though the judge did allow jurors to consider it in his defence.

Charge it! That could cost you Credit cards. Decision in Visa, MasterCard complaint may mean those with ‘premium’ cards could pay more, be rejected by merchants A ruling expected this week on a complaint against Visa and MasterCard could significantly change how consumers use credit cards in Canada.

Under the current rules, merchants are required to accept all Visa and MasterCard offerings, but are prevented from charging an additional fee to those who pay with so-called premium cards, which come with higher costs. Canada’s Commissioner of Competition filed a formal complaint with the tribunal in May 2012, accusing Visa and MasterCard of engaging in anticompetitive behaviour. Consumers have been forced to pay an estimated $5 billion worth of hidden fees each year as a result, the complaint says. “Without changes to the rules, merchants will continue to face high costs for accepting credit cards, and all consumers,

Coffee shop workers in Halifax are leading a push to unionize in what could serve as a model for baristas elsewhere in Canada, one national union says. In recent months, employees at one café joined a union and workers at two others have launched efforts to do the same. Labour organizing in the service industry has been traditionally low for both ideological and economic reasons, said David Doorey, a professor of labour and employment law at York University in Toronto in an email. “It is a highly competitive

Other 3D feats
Jigsaw puzzle is world’s smallest This may not look like the most difficult puzzle to put together but you’ll need a good magnifying glass and a steady hand to complete it. This three-piece jigsaw — created by researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany — is the world’s smallest puzzle,
with each of the parts measuring less than one millimetre in size. This puzzle was made to showcase a new process of making injection-moulds (used in everything from watches to jet engine parts). The technique enables engineers to “pop out” moulded objects as tiny as a half a millimetre in volume. METRO
• In March 2012, researchers at the Vienna University of Technology created a 3D car in 240 seconds. The car’s length was 1/1,000 — the width of a human hair. • In May 2013, scientists made microscopic flowerlike crystals — each flower smaller than the thickness of a bank note.
It’s cost-cutting Without the need for a substrate layer that would go to waste after the objects are made, this method is cheaper. “LIGA2.X ensures higher degrees of freedom in the arrangement of structured mould nests,” said Jochen Heneka of KIT’s Institute of Microstructure Technology. METRO

Director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. surprised the San Diego Comic-Con audience with some very big news at their Hall H panel presentation Saturday. In the sequel to Man of Steel, scheduled for release in the summer of 2015, Henry
Cavill’s Superman will be joined on-screen by Batman, Snyder announced. Cavill will return for the sequel, along with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, but the role of Batman — most recently played by Christian Bale — has yet to be cast. Christopher Nolan will once again serve as producer. NED EHRBAR, MWN

The Conjuring scares up big ticket sales
Metro World News in Hollywood
Dane DeHaan made waves with the Comic-Con crowd as an antihero in Chronicle, and now he’s upping his superhero game with the Amazing Spider-Man 2, out next year, in which he plays Harry Osborn — most recently portrayed by James Franco. So we had to ask if there were any other Franco roles he had in mind. How has your Comic-Con experience been? I shot a night shoot last night, got here at 8:30 in the morning, did some press with Metallica, and now here I am doing press for Spider-Man, so just another day (laughs). It’s insane. The

fact that I’m at Comic-Con doing press for Spider-Man is really, I don’t know. I mean, certainly a dream come true, and if I try to think about it (it’s) definitely an overwhelming thought. So I guess I’m just trying not to think about it. How do you keep everything straight when you’re working on so little sleep? I only think about things as they’re happening, I suppose. I don’t try to get ahead of myself. I mean, I’m only
technically working on one movie right now, and then I just have to talk about the other ones. I mean, once they’re over I can talk about them. That’s not really a problem. For the Amazing SpiderMan 2, you’re playing a part most recently played by James Franco. Are there any other James Franco roles you’d like to reinterpret? Other James Franco roles? Gosh, there’s just so many of them. I would like to
host the Oscars. Does that count? I’d do a whole new thing. I don’t know, maybe it would be fun to take a crack at James Dean — although really it would be terrifying. What other roles has he played that I want to play? How about Spring Breakers? I don’t know. I think I’ll let him have that one. 127 Hours? Yeah, sure. Something like that. That would be fun.
Moviegoers were ready for a fright this weekend, sending The Conjuring into first place at the box office. According to studio estimates Sunday, the Warner Bros. haunted-house horror debuted with $41.5 million in domestic ticket sales, unseating the three-week champ, Despicable Me 2. The Universal film dropped to second place with $25 million. Fox’s new animated offering, Turbo, opened with $21.5 million, good for third place.

Spit take: Justin Bieber did something awful again Kanye West. all photos getty images
Kanye has no love for the paparazzi Kanye West’s ongoing tensions with paparazzi boiled over this weekend when the rapper came to blows with a photographer outside of the LAX airport, according to TMZ. It’s unclear what spurred the altercation, but sources say West went after the
“especially aggressive” photographer and tried to take away his camera, pulling him to the ground. West was no longer on the scene when police arrived. The photographer was taken to a local hospital to undergo X-rays on his hip, which he claimed he injured in the fight.

The band Korn is growing, yes, corn using a hydroponics system at their studio. “Hmmm...” says Meatloaf to himself and nods. Justin Bieber allegedly
spits in some DJ’s face. Everyone should just calm right down. Clearly what happened is that Justin mistook the guy for a spittoon that a minimum-wage earner will be along to deal with later. Rumour has it that Kris-
ten Stewart is now dating Michael Pitt. It sounds like the perfect match. They both enjoy music, old movies and sneering. Lindsay Lohan will earn some $2 million for an eightpart reality series on Oprah’s OWN. Not only that, but Lindsay will also get a stylist and two assistants. The money is in the bank. The stylist and two assistants will be on their way just as soon as someone loses the Play For A Chance Not To Be Lindsay Lohan’s Stylist and Two Assistants game. Kanye West’s new fashion line for A.P.C. features a $125 plain white T-shirt. “That’s so cute.

Studies suggest the vibrations, soothing rhythms might benefit newborns who are too fragile to be comforted by hand As the guitarist strums and sings a lullaby in Spanish, Augustin Morales stops squirming in his crib and closes his eyes. This is therapy in a newborn intensive care unit, and research suggests that music may help those born way too soon adapt to life outside the womb. Some preemies are too small and fragile to be held and comforted by human touch, and many are often fussy and show other signs of stress. Other complications include immature lungs, eye disease, problems with sucking and sleeping difficulties. Recent studies and reports suggest the vibrations and soothing rhythms of music, especially performed live in the

Klinger provides a soothing contrast that even the tiniest babies seem to notice. “What music therapy can uniquely provide is that passive listening experience that just encourages relaxation for the patient, encourages participation by the family,” Klinger said after a recent session in Augustin’s hospital room. The baby’s parents, Lucy
Morales and Alejandro Moran, stood at the crib and whispered lovingly to their son as Klinger played lullabies. “The music relaxes him; it makes him feel more calm,” Morales said. “Sometimes it makes us cry.” More than two dozen U.S. hospitals offer music therapy in their newborn intensive care units and its popularity is grow-
ing, said Joanne Loewy, who directs a music and medicine program at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. Preemies’ music therapy was even featured on a recent episode of American Idol, when show finalist Kree Harrison watched a therapist working with a tiny baby at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

• Author’s translator
The words “translator” and “interpreter” are often used interchangeably — but they are actually two distinct careers requiring different skill sets and training. A translator translates written materials from one language into another. An interpreter works with the spoken word. A translator doesn’t simply change one word for the same word in a different language. Translators need to have exceptional writing skills, translating the mood, style, tone and

emails, web copy, advertising materials, brochures, legal and business documents, literary works, textbooks, instructional guides and technical manuals. You are also reading, writing and referencing language guides, proofreading, and com-

Froome caps dominating Tour
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Blue Jays swept away by Rays Luke Scott and Kelly Johnson hit back-to-back home runs Sunday as the Tampa Bay Rays again used the long ball to complete a three-game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays with a 4-3 victory. Evan Longoria also went deep for the Rays (58-41), who hit seven home runs in the weekend series. Toronto scored two in the ninth to cut Tampa Bay’s lead to one when Jose Reyes doubled home Josh Thole and Brett Lawrie, but closer Fernando Rodney struck out Jose Bautista and got ground balls from Edwin Encarnacion and Melky Cabrera to pick up his 24th save.

Phil Mickelson reacts after making a birdie putt to finish the final round of the British Open with a 5-under 66, Sunday, in Gullane, Scotland. The lefty won the championship by three strokes. ANDY LYONS/GETTY IMAGES
Lefty laughs last British Open. Mickelson rallies late in final round to capture Claret Jug One of the greatest final rounds in a major. Two of the best shots he ever struck with a 3-wood. The third leg of the Grand Slam. Phil Mickelson never imagined any of this happening at the British Open. No wonder he never took his hand off the base of that silver Claret Jug as he talked about the best Sunday he ever had at a major. Five shots out of the lead, Mickelson blew
“I’ve always tried to go out and get it. I don’t want anybody to hand it to me. I want to go out and get it. And today, I did.” Phil Mickelson past Tiger Woods, caught up to Lee Westwood and Masters champion Adam Scott, and won golf’s oldest championship with the lowest final round in his 80 majors. With four birdies over the last six holes, Mickelson closed with a 5-under 66 for a threeshot win over Henrik Stenson. No longer is he mystified by links golf, and he has his name etched in that jug to prove it. “This is such an accom-
plishment for me because I just never knew if I’d be able to develop the game to play links golf effectively,” Mickelson said. “To play the best round arguably of my career, to putt better than I’ve ever putted, to shoot the round of my life ... it feels amazing to win the claret jug.” Westwood, who started the day with a two-shot lead, fell behind for the first time all day with a bogey on the par-3 13th
hole and never recovered, closing with a 75. Scott took the outright lead with a four-foot birdie on the 11th, and then made four straight bogeys starting at the 13th, and a final bogey on the 18th gave him a 72. Woods, in his best position to win a major since the crisis in his personal life, stumbled badly on his way to a 74 and was never a serious challenger. Tied for the lead, Mickelson smashed a 3-wood onto the green at the par-5 17th to about 25 feet for a two-putt birdie, and finished in style with a 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th to match the lowest score of this championship.

Chris Froome won the 100th Tour de France on Sunday, having dominated rivals over three weeks on the road and adroitly dealing with doping suspicions off it. Froome rode into Paris in style — in the yellow race leader’s jersey he took on Stage 8 and never relinquished, vigorously fending off rivals whose concerted challenges turned this Tour into a thriller. Froome and his Sky teammates linked arms as they rode for the line. As per tradition and because Froome’s big race lead made him untouchable, Sunday’s 133-kilometre final ride was largely a leisurely affair with riders pedalling up to Froome to offer congratulations.
