An Edmonton father who “lost track of time” while running errands has been charged by police after Const. Steven Kilpatrick rescued the man’s two-year-old son from a hot vehicle parked in an underground parkade on Wednesday. And as Edmonton parents continue to leave children unattended in vehicles — officers estimate 10 charges have been laid in the past month alone — police said they are considering lobbying the province to

toughen legislation. Sgt. Gary Willits said police receive a minimum of five calls per week regarding children being left alone in vehicles. In July, a three-yearold Edmonton girl died after she was found inside her family’s SUV. “What happened (Wednesday) could have been the same result,” said Willits. Around 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday, members of the Downtown Division were at a collision site when they received a call from a security guard at a nearby highrise regarding a child left in a vehicle. Kilpatrick, a bicycle officer with EPS Downtown Division, hopped on his bike and took shortcuts through alleyways to get past the collision and traffic jam it had created. Kilpatrick found a two-

year-old boy in obvious distress in a car seat in the back of a sedan parked on the first level of the underground parkade. He broke the driver-side window and rescued the child, who was sweaty and lethargic and had been in the vehicle for at least 45 minutes. “To see a two-year-old that might not be able to process why he’s been left in this vehicle, why he’s feeling the way he is, it’s impossible to put into words.… This is about as pure as it gets for saving lives,” said Kilpatrick. When the boy’s 33-yearold father returned 10 to 20 minutes later, he was arrested and charged with abandoning a child. After being examined by EMS, the boy was eventually returned to his mother.

Alberta can create a new knowledge-based economy by commercializing research: Lukaszuk Client survey results from TEC Edmonton show Alberta has the fundamental blocks to create a new economy based on research development and commercialization, said deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk on Thursday. On Thursday, the business incubator and joint venture between the city and the University of Alberta released 2012 survey results showing TEC Edmonton’s 106 client companies generated $103 million in rev-

enue in 2012. Several spin-off companies from the U of A and other academic institutions are clients of the business accelerator. “Those who tend to be critical of the idea and who believe that research should never be aimed at commercialization are simply wrong,” Lukaszuk told media following a presentation from TEC Edmonton. Lukaszuk said Alberta needs to follow in the footsteps of Massachusetts or Silicon Valley

and convert research into economic activity. “The (spring) budget was a prime example of what will continue to happen if we don’t invest into applied research, if we don’t grow pure research, if we don’t start becoming world-class at commercializing research and if we don’t start growing and spinning out economies like these, clusters with economic growth like these, in this province,” he said.

City launches new bike-lane videos

Cycling in the city. Construction on new lanes ramps up RYAN TUMILTY

As the city gets set to install new bike lanes, it’s offering an unusual refresher course on how to use them. Three videos will go online this week featuring stop-motion Lego characters showing how dedicated bike lanes, buffered bike lanes and sharrows work. At the same time, new lanes will be installed on 40 Avenue from 106 Street to 119 Street, on 95 Avenue between 142 Street and 189 Street and also along 106 Street between 34 Avenue and 51 Avenue. Tyler Golly, the city’s general supervisor of sustainable transportation, said the city wants to spread the network of bike

Police investigate after man found critically injured A man found with serious injuries at a northside bus shelter Thursday morning is in critical condition. Edmonton police are investigating the incident as a possible assault after they were called Thursday morning to the shelter at 111 Avenue and 92 Street. Edmonton Transit security initially found the man and called police. Police believe the man was assaulted sometime between midnight and 6 a.m. Thursday and are asking anyone who may have witnessed anything to call police. Police spokesperson Leila Daoud said at this point officers have more questions than answers and don’t know exactly when the incident took place. “We don’t have a specific timeline,” she said. As of Thursday afternoon, she said police have not yet been able to talk with the victim because of his injuries and they don’t know if a single person attacked him or if it was multiple people. They also don’t know where the man might have been before the assault. She asked anyone with information to call the Edmonton police complaints line at 780-423-4567 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO

lanes, because residents want them. “The desire is there. What we need to do is to design the infrastructure people will be comfortable using,” he said. He said the videos are meant

to be a light-hearted way to get a message across. Chris Chan, executive director of the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society, said the city is catching up with the interest level in cycling. He said

cyclists can ride on regular roads, but the bike lanes make it easier, especially for new cyclists. “They really make that space comfortable for people who want to bike,” said Chan.

Twelve acts, 32,000 music fans, $1.5M Alberta Flood Aid Concert. Stephen Harper was a surprise guest at McMahon Stadium robson fletcher

Metro in Calgary

An enormous cheer erupted from the 32,000 music fans packed into McMahon Stadium Thursday night as it was announced how much money had been raised from the concert: $1.4 million and counting. Soon the figure was revised to $1.5 million, and the total was expected to keep rising to as much as $2 million as donations continued

to — pardon the term — flood in. In addition to ticket and merchandise sales, those attending the Alberta Flood Aid Concert and watching live on television and the Internet were encouraged to do their part and kick in $10 per message by texting “abflood” to 20222, with all proceeds going to the Calgary Foundation’s Flood Rebuilding Fund. “I wanted to support the flood relief,” said concert-goer Dana Walker, who moved to Calgary from Edmonton two years ago and saw several of her friends’ homes and businesses flooded out. “I was fortunate because I live on a hill,” Walker said. “When you have that survivor’s guilt is when you want to help everybody else around

Up for debate

Council to discuss pedway for Coliseum A new $30-million pedway could connect the Coliseum LRT centre and the Northlands Expo Centre under a proposal council will discuss next week. Coun. Ed Gibbons asked city administration to look at options for connecting the convention centre to the LRT station earlier this year. He said with so many convention visitors staying downtown and then travelling out to Northlands, it makes sense to better connect the facilities. “It’s not just about Northlands, it’s about economics, it’s about tourism,” he said. “It’s something that will make it much easier to use the LRT.” Gibbons said events like Farm Fair and the Canadian Finals Rodeo bring significant dollars to the local economy. City spokesperson Quinn Nicholson said the report going to council is only a preliminary report and stressed the estimates could change dramatically. “They have pulled approximate numbers from the Health Sciences pedway,” said Nicholson. The proposed design would put another storey on the current LRT station and extended an enclosed pedway over the tracks at 118 Avenue and directly into the exposition centre. The budget request will come to council in 2014 along with a proposed facelift to the LRT station, but no budget has been approved for any part of the project. Ryan Tumilty/Metro

‘My country is being Wayfarers need destroyed,’ Egyptian better wayfinding expat laments around Edmonton footnotes

Mayhem. Local Egyptians express horror over violence Patrick Nguyen

edmonton@metronews.ca

As the death toll soars in Egypt, Egyptians living in Edmonton are in shock at the horrific scenes in the news. “Yesterday I could not get any work done or go to sleep. All I did was watch and read the media,” said Omar Fayed, who came to Edmonton from Egypt

in 2009 to attend school. “It is impossible not to think about everyone back home in Egypt. How could all this violence be happening again? That’s all I can think of.” With Thursday’s report that Egyptian authorities have granted police the power to use deadly force to protect themselves and state institutions, Fayed believes it will only get worse. “I’m not sure when it will get better. I think it will become darker before there is light. There’s so much violence and no one knows how to stop it,” he said. Ahmed Ibrahim, a friend of

Fayed’s, says other countries should intervene. “Something has to be done. Foreign governments or someone else needs to help out my country,” he said. “It’s my home. I can’t watch it crumble.” Fayed says the military is handling the situation in the worst way, adding the army is “committing a war crime.” “I never supported (ousted president Mohammed) Morsi, and I was happy when he was taken out of power, but now it’s worse than ever,” he said. “My country is being destroyed and my countrymen murdered.” “What can we do?” Ibrahim asked. “It’s just devastating.”

Last month my wife and I spent a week in San Francisco and found every site with ease, thanks to signs above and below ground. “You are here” maps made us comfortable enough to reach our destinations but also confident enough to get off the beaten path, knowing it would be hard to get lost. Fast-forward a week and I’m in Edmonton, at my wit’s end, trying to find a recommended tailor inside Central Station that, 10 minutes ago, was technically right below my feet. Why was I more comfortable traversing a city I’d never been to than the one I call home? Because Edmonton hasn’t fully committed to “wayfinding.” Wayfinding sounds like an aviation term, but it’s just about finding your way through an unfamiliar place. It’s how you get around a mall, find the bread aisle or exit a parkade. From an urban perspective, it’s about sensory and visual cues that guide you around a city. Drivers know these as street signs. But for pedestrians or public-transit users, it’s not so obvious.

Tim Querengesser realized this shortly after moving to Edmonton from Toronto, and decided to create the Edmonton Wayfinding Project to improve the pedestrian experience. He has even challenged the four mayoral candidates to “get lost” — that is, defied them to get from one point of the city to another without the benefit of a car, smartphone or someone to help. “The ultimate prize is my vote for mayor,” says Querengesser (who, in the interest of 101

Wayfinding sounds like an aviation term, but it’s just about finding your way through an unfamiliar place. disclosure, has worked with me in his role as an Alberta Venture magazine editor). Nowhere is the city’s tricky wayfinding more obvious than on the under-utilized pedway, where adjoining hotels and businesses have taken it upon themselves to create directional signs. It’s a patchwork of urban planning when a single, uniform design would be far more intuitive and helpful, especially since, according to 2013’s Central Business District report,

there’s an uptick in transit use, biking and walking. One city planner has asked for $2 million for a signage system, but council wasn’t sold on it. That’s why Querengesser challenged the candidates. “I want the people making policy to experience the problem instead of being told about it.” So far, three of the four candidates are considering it. Karen Leibovici said she’s committed to the issue but doesn’t want the “photo-op.” Whether the call is heeded, a relatively small investment, like Calgary’s new $1.3-million directional signs to popular streets and landmarks, could pay for itself. A study from Toronto, where a new multimillion-dollar wayfinding strategy is being considered for the Pan American Games, says every buck invested could fetch up to $2.40 in returns based on the increased number of pedestrians and cyclists who are more likely to make spontaneous purchases at nearby businesses. But the best reason is hospitality: Edmonton is one of Canada’s fastest-growing and youngest cities, meaning there are tens of thousands of unacquainted new arrivals, and many of them can’t afford or simply choose not to drive. Querengesser is just one of them.

Distracted driving. Stop Delay due to flood. McGraw nets nearly $90K in coke concert date rescheduled Distracted driving was the least of a young man’s worries after Edmonton police found a large amount of drugs and cash in his vehicle Tuesday night. In a release issued Thursday, police said an officer from the Specialized Traffic Apprehension Team saw what he believed was a motorist texting and driving around 7:50 p.m. The vehicle was driving erratically, according to police, and was pulled over. When the officer ap-

proached the vehicle, he noted a strong odour of marijuana, and a subsequent search of the vehicle yielded 1,095 grams of cocaine, eight grams of marijuana and $1,400 cash. The youth who was driving the vehicle has been charged with one count of possession for the purposes of trafficking, one count of possessing a government document and two breaches. The accused was also given a $172 ticket for distracted driving. metro

Perogy Platter. Tasty competition includes Grilled Cheese and Ketchup chips

He submitted an entry for a flavour, and included three ingredients (sour cream, bacon and caramelized onions) and a short story on what sparked his idea. “I travel a lot and when I get back to Edmonton I don’t truly know I’m home until I arrive at my favourite diner at the edge of town and get that smell of bacon and perogies,” he said. Crawford’s entry was selected from more than 600,000 flavour ideas as one of four finalists. Perogy Platter chips join Grilled Cheese and Ketchup (from Ottawa), Creamy Garlic Caesar (from Vancouver) and Maple Moose (from Newfoundland), which are all available across Canada for a limited time. Chip eaters are encouraged to vote for their favourite flavour. The grand-prize winner will take home $50,000 plus one per cent of their flavour’s future sales.

The Calgary Stampede announced Thursday that Tim McGraw will be coming to Cowtown in November after his concert earlier this year was postponed due to flooding. McGraw will hit the stage on Nov. 2 at the Scotiabank Saddledome and tickets for the original concert date of July 11 will be valid for the same seats. Refunds are also being offered through Ticketmaster

Gina Mancini, or, as everyone called her, Mama Gina, died last year after having a heart attack hours after team tryouts. She was 42.

“Instead us focusing on soccer, we had all our girls in uniform at their teammate’s mother’s funeral,” said Janet Deane, current team manager. Mancini was the mother of the team’s 10-year-old goalkeeper, Fabiana. “We just want so much to win this for Fabbie in memory of her mom,” Deane said. Scottish United is the only Edmonton team in the contest and is currently stuck in

10th place. The online voting booths close on Monday. Scottish United would receive a $125,000 field renovation if they won the contest, a field they would dedicate to Mama Gina. “It’s just a way to saying, ‘We’ll always remember you,’” said Deane.

Touring across the country last year to perform at fringe festivals brought Johnnie Walker and Morgan Norwich to the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival for the first time. The Toronto pair are from Nobody’s Business Theatre and have returned to Edmonton this year to perform as part of the 32nd annual edition of the fringe, which kicked off Thursday evening — and is the biggest festival of its kind in North America. “Sometimes you assume that Toronto is going to have the biggest versions of everything,” said Walker. “Then

we came to Winnipeg and we came here, and we realized there were these huge festivals happening kind of on a whole other level. “We had a great time last year so we knew we wanted to come back.” Walker and Norwich are performing Amusement in the Loonatic Fringe Tent at 85 Avenue and 104 Street. “It’s about two friends from Toronto ... who wind up working at a certain Orlando theme park ... and having some merry misadventures,” said Walker. “Definitely sort of merry and dark,” added Norwich. “It’s a fairy tale for grown-ups. It’s a little raunchy.” Nobody’s Business Theatre is one of more than 200 companies and performers that will put on nearly 2,000 shows through to Aug. 25. “It’s a powerful force, it’s a known festival in and amongst the festival circuit,” said Fringe Theatre Adventures executive director Jill Roszell. “It is a des-

Athlete defends anti-gay law Russia. Pole vaulter slams competitors who painted their nails in rainbow colours to stand against Moscow Pole-vault great Yelena Isinbayeva condemned homosexuality Thursday after criticiz-

ing competitors who painted their fingernails in rainbow colours to support gays and lesbians in the face of a new anti-gay law in Russia. The Russian, who won her third world title Tuesday in front of a boisterous home crowd, came out in favour of the law that has drawn sharp criticism and led Western activists to call for a boycott of next year’s Winter Olympics in

the Russian resort of Sochi. “If we allow to promote and do all this stuff on the street, we are very afraid about our nation because we consider ourselves like normal, standard people,” Isinbayeva, a two-time Olympic champion, said in English. “We just live with boys with woman, woman with boys.” At least two Swedish athletes competed Thursday

with their fingernails painted in rainbow colours at Luzhniki Stadium. Emma Green Tregaro, who won a bronze medal at the 2005 worlds, posted a picture of her fingers on Instagram, saying, “Nails painted in the colours of the rainbow.” She followed that with several hashtags, including “#pride” and “#moscow2013.” the associated press

Brazil. Three men get prison time for gang rape of American tourist A Rio de Janeiro court convicted three men Thursday in the gang rape of an American woman aboard a public-transit van that shocked Brazil and made headlines around the world. Judge Guilherme Schilling delivered the verdict Wednesday, sentencing 20-yearold Jonathan Froudakis de Souza and 21-year-old Walace Aparecido de Souza Silva each to 49 years and three months in prison on rape, robbery and extortion charges. Carlos Armando Costa dos Santos, whose age was not given, was sentenced to 21 years and seven months in prison, while a minor detained in connection with the rape has yet to be tried. A court statement on the decision said the attacks on the woman “in many instances were laced with sadism and complete disdain

for the victim.” The assault began after midnight on March 30 when the victim and her French boyfriend caught a public van in Rio’s showcase Copacabana beach neighbourhood en route to the popular nightlife district of Lapa. Brazilian news reports have said the couple were in the country to study Portuguese. Van operators robbed the passengers and forced all but the couple to get off. While they restrained the Frenchman and beat him with a tire iron, they repeatedly raped the woman as the van travelled back and forth between Rio and a nearby suburb. News of the case sparked widespread outrage, particularly after it emerged that the gang was suspected in previous attacks on Brazilian women that were largely uninvestigated. the associated press

Senate mulls more payback for Wallin The Senate hasn’t yet decided whether to order Sen. Pamela Wallin to pay back more money for her travel to so-called “networking events.” But Conservative Sen. Carolyn Stewart Olsen says there are lingering questions about “quite a few” of those claims, which came to nearly $21,000. “Our committee did review the claims in question and asked Finance to do more research for us,” she said in an email Thursday. “I do not have an idea of amounts right now. Will probably take some time to sort out.” Some of those networking events include Wallin’s meeting with someone from the New York City Ballet; with a Bay Street investor to talk about a business she was about to buy; and with someone to talk about a book project.

Teens in Rehtaeh Parsons case appear before court Child-porn allegations. Pair will be back in a month to give attorneys time to review evidence

“These boys have not been prosecuted in the media.… It was only through the media participation that this case is even being looked at today.”

RUTH DAVENPORT Metro in Halifax

The two young men facing child pornography-related charges arising from the Rehtaeh Parsons case will return to Halifax youth court in September. The 18-year-olds were arraigned Thursday morning, but their lawyers asked for an adjournment, saying they needed time to review the case against their file. “We’ve received nothing other than a few bits of disclosure five minutes before we stepped into the courtroom,” defence attorney Josh Arnold told reporters after the brief ap-

pearance. Rehtaeh took her own life in April, reportedly after two years of bullying over an alleged sexual assault when she was 15. The accused were arrested

on Aug. 8. One is charged with creating and distributing child pornography. The other faces two charges of distribution. Rehtaeh’s uncle told reporters afterwards he wasn’t satis-

fied with the charges. “I think they should be charged with manslaughter,” said Michael Parsons, who believes the alleged child pornography, distribution and sub-

sequent bullying “caused that much anger within her that she had to take her own life.” Arnold said intense emotion is to be expected but expressed concern regarding the scrutiny surrounding his client. “It appears that individuals on the Internet and certain members of the media conducted their own one-sided trial,” he said. Arnold said the case would likely be heard by a judge alone, rather than a judge and jury.

CPR refuses to pay for Lac-Mégantic Montreal.

Boy, 12, charged with trafficking cocaine A raid in downtown Winnipeg has led to cocainetrafficking charges against a 12-year-old boy.

The boy is also charged with possessing the proceeds of crime and failing to comply with previous court-ordered conditions. He remains in custody at the Manitoba Youth Centre. THE CANADIAN PRESS

help fund the cleanup of the devastated Quebec town. The railway has announced that it will appeal the legal order. The news comes one day after the provincial government added CPR to a list of defendants that it says are responsible for paying for the massive mop-up in LacMégantic, where a train derailed on July 6 and dumped millions of litres of crude oil into the environment. “Canadian Pacific has reviewed the notice. As a matter of fact, and law, CP is not responsible for this cleanup,”

said railway spokesman Ed Greenberg. But Environment Minister Yves-Francois Blanchet was quick to retort. “Under the law on environmental quality, the minister does not ask for, or suggest, compensation ... he orders it,” said Blanchet in a statement. The disaster killed 47 people and led to a mass evacuation in the community of 6,000. The derailment has since prompted a criminal investigation, several lawsuits and concerns that locals may have to abandon the downtown core. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Saskatoon. Mentalhealth commission to educate police officers The head of the Canadian Mental Health Commission says good education and training will help police officers interact better with people who have mentalhealth issues. Louise Bradley spoke Thursday at the Canadian Association of Police Boards’ annual meeting in Saskatoon on Thursday. Education and training on this issue is only the beginning, she said. Saskatoon police Chief Clive Weighill says it’s one of the biggest policing problems that has emerged in the

last 10 to 15 years. “We’re dealing with homeless people. We’re dealing with people who have mental-health (and) addiction problems,” he said. “People call us. We end up putting intoxicated people in our detention areas. They don’t belong there. It’s a health issue, not a crime issue.” A coroner’s inquest is scheduled this fall into the deaths of three people with possible mental-health issues who were shot by Toronto police.

Gang violence cows teachers, closes 16 schools in South Africa Cape Town. Provincial leader calls for troops despite increased police presence Education officials in South Africa closed 16 schools, affecting 12,000 students Thursday in an impoverished area near Cape Town because of a spike in gang violence that has left teachers too afraid to go to work. Underscoring the level of violence, one man who was identified by fellow members as belonging to a gang called the Americans was shot dead Thursday in an area in Manenberg where many children play. The young man’s mother, Aysha Ismail, was distraught as she spoke to The Associated Press by phone soon after

seeing her son’s body. “My heart is broken because this gang violence must stop,” Ismail said through tears. “There are nearly a hundred small children playing around in the streets. We need a police patrol here.” South Africa’s police services have increased their presence in the area recently, said Bronagh Casey, spokeswoman for the Western Cape Education Ministry. But the violence is still affecting schools in the area. “We are closing the schools because our educators say they are unsafe going to the area to report for duty,” Casey said, adding that students cannot be left unsupervised. “We rely on law enforcement in the area. Our education relies on a stable community in which to operate.” Western Cape Premier

Police not enough

Violence continues to affect schools despite increased police presence. • A caretaker at one of the schools died after being shot weeks ago. • A stray bullet from gang violence hit a primary school.

Helen Zille called for the army to be deployed to the area on Wednesday. “The presence of the army would give the police the space to conduct investigations and ensure gang members responsible for this violence are brought to justice,” Zille wrote in an open letter to Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa.

Death toll soars in Egypt as violence spills into 2nd day Turmoil spreads. Police, churches and government buildings attacked as Muslim Brotherhood calls for mass rally on Friday Weeping relatives in search of loved ones uncovered the faces of the dead in a Cairo mosque near the smouldering epicentre of support for ousted president Mohammed Morsi as the death toll soared past 600 Thursday from Egypt’s deadliest day since the Arab Spring began. World condemnation widened for the bloody crackdown Wednesday on Morsi’s mostly Islamist supporters, including an angry response from U.S. President Barack Obama. Violence spread Thursday,

with government buildings set afire near the Pyramids, policemen gunned down and scores of Christian churches attacked. As turmoil engulfed the country, the Interior Ministry authorized the use of deadly force against protesters targeting police and state institutions. The Muslim Brotherhood, trying to regroup after the assault on their encampments and the arrest of many of their leaders, called for a mass rally on Friday in a challenge to the government’s declaration of a nationwide state of emergency and a dusk-to-dawn curfew. At least 638 people were confirmed killed and nearly 4,000 wounded in the violence sparked when police smashed the two sit-ins in Cairo where Morsi’s supporters had been camped out for six weeks calling for his reinstatement. the associated press

Foreign affairs. Egyptian authorities must ‘protect worshippers’: Baird Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says he’s concerned about attacks on religious institutions as deadly violence continues to flare in Egypt. But so far, Canada has not imposed any sanctions against the interim government in Cairo following a military crackdown against supporters of ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi. In a statement, Baird and Andrew Bennett, Canada’s ambassador for religious freedom, call attacks on Christian churches in Egypt unconscionable, and they say authorities need to protect worshippers. “We are concerned by recent attacks on religious institutions in Egypt, in particular the unconscionable attacks on Coptic Orthodox and Anglican churches, and on Baptist and Franciscan institutions,” the statement reads. “Attacks on places of

Canada calls on Egyptian authorities to protect worshippers and religious sites from violence and intimidation.” Egypt’s ambassador to Canada, Wael Ahmed Kamal Aboul-Magd, was unavailable Thursday to respond to Baird’s statement. His assistant said the ambassador would not be back to the embassy until the weekend. the canadian press

A powerful car bomb tore through a bustling south Beirut neighbourhood that is a stronghold of Hezbollah on Thursday, killing at least 18 and trapping dozens of others in an inferno of burning cars and buildings in the bloodiest attack yet on Lebanese civilians linked to Syria’s civil war. The blast is the second in just over a month to hit one of the Shiite militant group’s bastions of support, and the deadliest in decades. It raises the spectre of a sharply divided Lebanon being pulled further into the conflict next door, which is being fought on increasingly sectarian lines pitting Sunnis against Shiites. Syria-based Sunni rebels and

militant Islamist groups fighting to topple Syria’s President Bashar Assad have threatened to target Hezbollah strongholds in Lebanon in retaliation for intervening on behalf of his regime in the conflict. Thursday’s explosion ripped through a crowded, overwhelmingly Shiite area tightly controlled by Hezbollah, turning streets lined with vegetable markets, bakeries and shops into scenes of destruction. Dozens of ambulances rushed to the site of the explosion and firefighters used cranes and ladders to try to evacuate terrified residents from burning buildings. Some fled to the rooftops of buildings and civil defence workers were still struggling to bring them down to safety several hours after the explosion. The blast appeared to be an attempt to sow fear among the group’s civilian supporters. Hezbollah’s Al Manar TV and Red Cross official George Kattaneh said the death toll was at least 18, with more than 280 wounded. the associated press

Everybody agrees that a 19-year-old Pennsylvania man dressed up as a ninja and lurked near homes, but they disagree whether that’s a good idea — or legal. Todd Kapcsos was in court Wednesday to waive his right to a preliminary hearing on charges of loitering, prowling at night and disorderly conduct. Police said Kapcsos frightened some elderly residents who saw him sneaking around while carrying a black baseball bat and wearing a hooded sweatshirt, mask and pair of gloves — all of them black.

A few things will be different at this year’s Hempfest, the 22-year-old summer “protestival” in Seattle where tens of thousands of people gather to use marijuana openly and listen to music. It’s the first such festival after Washington and Colorado became the first U.S. states to legalize marijuana use by adults over 21. Having won at the state level, speakers will concentrate on the reform of federal marijuana laws, which still treat the drug as illegal.

Bond stuntman at London Games dies skydiving in Alps Mark Sutton. Police say man wearing wingsuit jumped from helicopter but crashed into Swiss Alps ridge The British stuntman who parachuted into the London Olympics opening ceremony as James Bond last summer has been killed in an accident in the Swiss Alps while flying a special wingsuit. Extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV said Thursday that Mark Sutton was killed during a gathering it had organized involving 20 wingsuit pilots who were being filmed as they jumped from helicopters. Wingsuits — aerodynamic jumpsuits that make wearers look like winged superheroes — allow flyers to soar long distances before opening parachutes to land. Swiss police confirmed Sutton died Wednesday

Woman loses arm in suspected shark attack A 20-year-old German tourist lost her arm in a suspected shark attack off Hawaii Wednesday. “She screamed and called for help,” said Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga. The arm was not found, Mainaga said. Maui County emergency responders said the woman’s right arm was severed below her shoulder as she snorkeled about 50 metres off shore. The woman was helped to shore by two friends and a kayaker. She was unconscious and was rushed to a hospital. The woman’s friends did not see the attack, and choppy water limited visibility. The attack was the eighth in Hawaii this year, according to state data. Last year saw 11 attacks, far above the annual average of 4.75. Hawaii has not seen a fatal shark attack since 2004.

TV marketing. Board games, beauty products and booze: Downton merch abounds Forget Mad Men modernism. This season’s style is all about Downton Abbey’s Edwardian opulence. Millions around the world have been seduced by the straitlaced but stylish world of the British historical drama. Soon they’ll be able to take some of that style home, getting lips as soft as Lady Mary’s, wine inspired by Lord Grantham’s favourite tipple and even walls as grey as Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen. Since it premiered in 2010, the series about the family and servants of a grand English house in the 1910s and 1920s has become a television juggernaut. The program’s makers have arguably been slow to exploit the commercial potential of that popularity. But that is about to change. Along with the fourth season starting on British TV next month, and on PBS in January, comes a range of merchandise that includes a board game, homewares, clothes, beauty products and even Downton wine.

“We haven’t rushed into it,” said executive producer Gareth Neame. “We don’t want to carpet bomb the retail sector.” In keeping with the program’s image, the products being rolled out aim to be quirky rather than kitschy.

Which one is the $1OK doughnut? Flavour faceoff. Tim Hortons contest whittled down from 63,000 entries to two After weeks of voting and much pondering by a panel of judges, Tim Hortons’ Duelling Donuts contest has come down to the final faceoff. The Oreo Borealis — a reinvention of the classic cookie — will take on the Tortoise Torte, a chocolate-caramel-pecan confection, for the $10,000 grand prize. A Tim Hortons spokesperson also said it was “expected” that the winner would have their doughnut re-

created in stores nationwide. The Oreo Borealis is the creation of Jason Flannery, from London, Ont.; the Tortoise Torte was dreamed up by Toronto’s Andrew Shepherd. Canadians submitted some 63,000 entries, which were whittled down to eight doughnuts in July with the help of a panel of judges that included Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Jason Priestley. The contest was dreamed up after Priestley appeared in an episode of the sitcom How I Met Your Mother last February, which riffed on the idea that Canadians were defined by their double-doubles and Dutchies.

Tim Hortons then created a batch of the fictional pastry, and asked Canadians to bring their own doughnut dreams to life from any combination of ingredients in their pantries.

New species in South America Imagine a mini-raccoon with a teddy-bear face that is so cute it’s hard to resist, let alone overlook. But somehow science did — until now. Researchers announced Thursday a rare discovery of a new species of mammal

Olingos vs. olinguitos

called the olinguito. The reddish-brown animal is about two feet long with a long tail and weighs about two pounds. It belongs to a grouping of large creatures that include dogs, cats and bears. The critter leaps through the trees of mountainous forests of Ecuador and Colombia at night, according

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Forest Whitaker gives a stirring performance as the man behind the men in The Butler. CONTRIBUTED

The Butler did it, with his son, in the White House Movie review. Forest Whitaker’s performance, coupled with David Oyelowo’s work, keep historical drama from slipping into melodrama Richard: Steve, at the centre of The Butler is Forest Whitaker’s remarkable performance, which skillfully tempers the film’s tendency to veer into melodrama. He’s a dignified presence throughout, in a quiet performance that allows the character’s inner life to shine through. It’s all about the details. The way he strokes the tie Jackie Kennedy gave him after JFK’s assassination. The pained looked in his eye as he kicks his son out of the White

House. They are small moments that cut through the movie’s sweeping story, keeping the whole thing grounded. Steve: It’s a nuanced performance that definitely helps counterbalance what could’ve become a melodramatic civil rights morality tale. Not only that, but it’s powerful because Whitaker and director Lee Daniels allow us to see racism as an institutionalized issue whereas most films on the topic simply personalize it. As strong as the huge ensemble cast is though, there are a few distracting duds. Besides sporting a waxy Pinocchio-like proboscis, was John Cusack even trying to portray Richard Nixon? RC: It’s almost as if Cusack is doing an impression of

someone doing an impression of Nixon. Perhaps they should have pulled Rich Little out of retirement to do the role. Nonetheless, Cusack does capture some of Tricky Dick’s oily desperation, but it is a surreal performance overall. The casting of the other presidents — Robin Williams as Eisenhower, James Marsden as JFK, Liev Schreiber as Johnson, and Alan Rickman as Reagan — feels stunty, but director Lee Daniels realizes the story isn’t theirs to tell and wisely keeps the focus on Gaines and family to tell this story. I thought David Oyelowo was terrific. You? SG: I thought Oyelowo pretty much stole the show — not easy considering he’s opposite the likes of Whitaker and Oprah and plays the range of a butler’s disgruntled teenaged son-turned civil rights

radical to middle-aged Obama supporter. More to the point, Daniels’ may be most successful exploring the strained relationship between him and his straitlaced father. RC: Their strained relationship was pushed to the limit by the tone of the times. The overall timeline will be familiar to anyone who’s ever watched the History Channel, but The Butler recounts the turbulent times through one man’s deeply divided family, bringing the story home with simple, first person storytelling. SG: To that end, Daniels surely deserves some recognition. After all, it’s probably impossible to effectively wedge the civil rights issue into a two hour movie. At least The Butler allows for a fascinating perspective.

SCENE

“You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve.” Those are the words of advice given to former plantation worker Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), on his first day as a butler at the White House. For the next three decades he was a witness to history, serving eight presidents during the stormiest days of America’s history. Gaines turns away, but his son Louis (David Oyelowo) becomes involved with the Freedom Riders and later with the Black Panthers. Father and son don’t see eye-to-eye despite mother Gloria’s (Oprah Winfrey) best efforts to unite them. Steve Gow takes over for Reel Guy Mark Breslin.

Jobs takes us from Steve Jobs’ (Ashton Kutcher) Paulo Alto, Calif., days where he and his friends redefined the way people interact with technology, through to his rise and fall as Apple’s CEO and on to his eventual redemption. Serving as a reminder of how rare it is to find an extraordinary film about an extraordinary person, the movie isn’t innovative or bold enough to be memorable. Perhaps it’s because it’s hard to take Kutcher seriously in the role of a visionary, but Jobs feels better suited to TV than the big screen.

A thriller with precious few thrills, Paranoia promises edge-of-yourseat espionage drama, but flatlines from the start. Liam Hemsworth does the best he can with a stale script, and the Gary Oldman/Harrison Ford duo manage to occasionally defibrillate some life into the film with their verbal swordplay — but there’s just not enough of it. The story is about as believable as a pro wrestling match, and with no real surprise twists or turns, the first time watching Paranoia feels like the 50th.

Kick-Ass wants to take a bigger bite out of crime, while his would-be partner, 15-year-old Hit-Girl, just wants to be a teenager. It’s that second part where this sequel finds its legs, pitting Mindy, Hit-Girl’s alter-ego, against a group of high school mean girls. Meanwhile Kick-Ass befriends a team of amateur heroes led by a brilliantly unhinged Jim Carrey. But the real conflict comes from a group of super villains who have set their sights on Kick-Ass. The resulting build to the climatic final battle is the movie’s lone rough patch.

••••• Woody Allen’s latest film centres on the single most annoying character of any recent film. Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) is the widow of a Bernie Madoff type (Alec Baldwin) who is now out of money and options. Leaving NYC behind for a free place to stay with her sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco, her self-centred, haughty attitude combined with her toxic past make it near impossible to build a future. Less a comedy in Allen’s traditional vein, this is a character study brilliantly performed. The movie meanders somewhat, but expect an Oscar nomination for Blanchett. richard crouse

Something in the Air Director. Olivier Assayas Stars. Clément Métayer, Lola Crèton

••••• A semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama by filmmaker Olivier Assayas, Something in the Air takes itself a bit too seriously. Set in the wake of volatile civil unrest in 1968 France, this inert tale focuses on a young artist/anarchist who bolts to Italy after injuring a guard and discovers a world of drugs, art and sex. The film doesn’t so much as progress as lie dormant and so will audiences by the time the end credits roll. Catchy soundtrack though.

Famke Janssen has become the victim of a rather creepy home invasion, as recently someone reportedly broke into her New York City penthouse and left a copy of a children’s book, the Lonely Doll, on a shelf by her bed, according to police reports obtained by ABC News. Janssen claims no one but her has access to her apartment. Police state there were no signs of forced entry, and nothing appears to have been stolen. metro

Simon Pegg loves to be that annoying guy The World’s End. Actor wanted his character to be ‘maddening’ Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

For the finale in director Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy — following Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz — actor and co-writer Simon Pegg wanted to play something other than the nice guy. Enter the loudmouthed, stuck-in-the-past Gary King (Pegg), who reunites his reluctant high school chums for a night of binge-drinking and nostalgia in The World’s End. While Gary is very much the hero of the film, he’s not exactly likeable, and that’s entirely by design, according to Pegg. “Selfishly, I wanted to be the overtly comic one in this,” Pegg says. “And I wanted to make

Comics = control?

A self-proclaimed geek and long-time comics fan, Simon Pegg feels right at home at San Diego Comic-Con, where he and Edgar Wright brought The World’s End for an early North American unveiling. But given how much Comic-Con and the popular culture it celebrates have come to dominate the entertainment industry, Pegg has to admit he’s a bit worried. “I read an essay on America by Jean Baudrillard when I was at university and it was all about the infantilization of society and about how we are kept young by being fed ... arguably juvenile stuff,” he says. “It keeps us young because it keeps us in touch with our childhood, makes us more pliable, makes us a bit easier to control.”

sible because I knew ultimately there was an excuse for it. And also, it’s just a lot of fun to be such a d—. As an actor, it’s a gift.” Gary was very much the top dog in high school, leading around his pals (played as adults by Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan) with little regard for how his future might play out. “I knew guys like that who were the absolute most popular boy. They were the best looking, they were in a band, they were the lead singer of that band, they got all the girls and then they never quite moved on past that,” Pegg says. “That glory was so intense that anything that came subsequently was unfulfilling and that ate away at them so that they started to live in the past and then eventually just became shadows of who they were in every way, all their potential all lost. And it’s really sad. I wanted Gary to be at once maddening and lovable and d—ish.”

Boy meets world. Jamie Campbell Bower makes the most of a press tour

metronews.ca WEEKEND, August 16-18, 2013

Life’s about to get crazy for Lily Collins Mortal Instruments. Actress stars in the first instalment of the latest tween franchise to hit the big screen — and she’s ready for it

Jamie Campbell Bower, right, is on a whirlwind press tour. contributed

Jamie Campbell Bower is no stranger to movies based on wildly successful book series, having popped up in the Harry Potter and Twilight worlds, but with Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, he’s putting in more hours — and getting more camera time — than before as Jace Wayland, a half-angel demonhunter and love interest for Clary Fray (Lily Collins) in the franchise’s first instalment. That means he’s also up for far more time publicizing the film, as he’s learned on his sevenweek international press tour. You’ve been on a seven-week press tour. Have you defaulted to just going wherever people tell you to at this point without asking too many questions? It’s sort of what I do for a living, as well. I’m told what to say and where to stand, so my life’s pretty easy. Ninety-nine per cent of my job is just turning up. You don’t get much time in all those countries, though, do you? No. Someone said, “What are you going to do in Oslo?” And I was like, probably do some interviews and see the inside

of a hotel, do the premiere and then f— off. That’s about as much as I’m going to be able to do. If you magically have time to relax on a tour stop, what’s the first thing you do? Try the local food, get out of bed. (In the past, when) I got somewhere I would just get into bed and pass out no matter what time it was because I’d be tired, but you don’t have to do that. You can pull yourself out and just walk around. Take pictures, do something unexpected. Surely you’re used to the rabidity of fans for this kind of franchise by now. Well … the word fan is an abbreviation of the word fanatic (laughs). Look, I’m really aware and I’m really grateful for the fact that without the people who read the books, I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you. So they deserve my time. They deserve five minutes if they come up to me on the street, they deserve five minutes if I’m doing a signing or just to say hi. I think that’s a really important lesson to be aware of. ned ehrbar/mwn

Metro World News in Hollywood

Lily Collins is bracing herself for the long haul with Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, the first in what’s hoped to be a franchise of films based on the successful book series looking to capture some of that Twilight and Hunger Games magic. With the second film already green-lit — and going into production in September — Collins likes to think she knows what she’s in for. What sort of mental preparation do you have to do before signing up for a franchise like this? You have to really love the story. I was a fan of the books before I was cast, and I just think the story gets better and better. We hope that it goes to a sequel, and then the second that it gets green-lit to do a sequel you’re like, “Aw, yes! I get to tell that part of the story now!” There are so many things in our movie that are introduced in the first book that you address in the movie that get cleared up ... later that you really want the chance to (explain) because it could leave you at a major cliffhanger and unresolved, you know what

Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens next Wednesday. contributed

I mean? There are so many things that you have to be careful about, but I so badly want to get to that point where you can explain things. You sign on wanting to do that. You need to want to go there, not just, “I just want to do the first one.” You need to love the whole story. How do you approach the idea of spoilers when the film is based on a popular book series? It’s so weird. I don’t know what I can say and what I can’t say. It’s in a book, and it’s online. But then everyone’s saying, “Don’t remind them.” I don’t want to actively ruin the story for you. If you really wanted

to know, you could totally find out, but I’m not going to be that person responsible. You don’t get that with a movie made from an original screenplay. No, you don’t. Then you have to sign those confidentiality agreements, and that’s when it’s like the forbidden fruit. When you’re not supposed to say something, that’s when you really, really want to say it. And then you just blurt it out without even knowing it. How much do you pay attention to online fan discussions? I think originally when I was cast I didn’t quite understand the scope of the films or the

books, and then all of a sudden all of these websites blasted up, and Twitter and Facebook and everything, and I was like, “Oh, it’s actually really big.” For every positive comment you find, you’ll find five bad ones, so I really try to separate myself. It’s exciting when people come up who are excited about things and that kind of gives me the extra drive to get through a long shooting day, but I think actively trying to find that stuff will only end up bringing you negativity as well. It’s just not worth it. Already the articles aren’t great, and then the comments just bring you down even further. “Like, I was so excited and now you’ve just made me upset. Thanks.”

Legendary rock label celebrates 25 years

New music. Walking Papers plan on sticking around in the business

Seattle music. Sub Pop Records, best known for launching Nirvana and Soundgarden, talks up Canadian band as best live rock act in the world today

Life lessons

“You take weird paths and sometimes it leads you to some pretty amazing, wonderful situations.” Jonathan Poneman Sub Pop Records co-founder

Walking Papers are on the verge of breaking. contributed

When it comes to music, Seattle is just that kind of city. You know, the kind where everyone knows everyone and at some point, everyone plays with everyone else. Take Walking Papers, a yearold heavy rock outfit whose self-titled debut album came out on Tuesday. The band includes bassist Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), drummer Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Mad Season), and — a little less famously — vocalist and guitarist Jeff Angell and keyboardist Benjamin Anderson, both of the band Missionary Position. But, occasionally, local bigwigs like Alice in Chains’s Jerry Cantrell and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready (the latter also plays on the album) jump on stage with them. “It’s always gone on,” McKagan says of Seattle’s bandhopping stew. “I grew up playing in bands here and

came back in ’93. There’s always been this brother and sisterhood thing of sharing gear, no questions asked, and sharing ideas. When I moved to L.A. I was struck by how competitive music is there, which blew my mind. I guess it’s a Seattle thing. It’s very incestuous here.” Through his longtime friendship with Angell and Martin, McKagan came on board and then Anderson. For all the superstar power this band packs, McKagan is realistic about his new band’s long-term future. “This band should be on the radio. It’s the most commercial, accessible band I’ve ever been in,” he says, sighing at rock radio’s demise. “We have hopes. We have a ton of new songs. The band writes a lot. We’re definitely going to do another record. You just cross your fingers and hope.” Linda laban, mwn

Having just celebrated 25 years of Sub Pop Records, cofounder Jonathan Poneman isn’t sure what the future holds. And that’s fine with him. Asked about his hopes for the quarter-century ahead, Poneman says: “That it be surprising.” “I don’t want to plan things out and follow some sort of scheme,” he said in an interview in his office. “I want life to surprise me and life to surprise us all.” The 52-year-old Poneman is no stranger to life’s surprises. He revealed in May he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. “And of course, while I wish that I didn’t have it, now that I do have it it’s been an interesting adventure in life. And interesting adventures come in weird packages,” he added, stretching out the word “weird.” “You take weird paths and sometimes it leads you to

some pretty amazing, wonderful situations. So that’s what I want — amazing and wonderful.” Poneman has already achieved that at Sub Pop, the

legendary label that helped launch Nirvana and Soundgarden and define the iconic Seattle sound. Sub Pop’s other godfather is Bruce Pavitt. Poneman calls

him the label’s creator, noting Sub Pop had existed “in Bruce’s bedroom and in his magazine columns and his cassette tape series,” before the two formally established the company in 1988. Canadian bands who have found a home at Sub Pop include the Constantines, Eric’s Trip, Handsome Furs, Hardship Post, Hot Hot Heat, Jale, and Zumpano. Toronto’s Metz is one of the label’s brightest stars today. “Bruce and I are in agreement that they’re the best live rock ’n’ roll band in the world right now,” Poneman said. “I think the record that they made for us is extraordinary but I still think that live, (the music) is transcendent ... As great as that record is, I would say they’re even greater live. And that’s not to diminish the record, it’s more to exult the live experience.” The canadian Press

Caesars Windsor is defending last weekend’s Ke$ha concert, even though some felt the performance featured a little too much, “Blah Blah Blah.” Ke$ha’s sold-out show included inflatable women’s legs, ample profanity and requests to “stick it” in the singer’s vagina. Midway through the set, parents could be seen leaving the venue with their kids in tow. Others took to Facebook to question why the show was deemed all ages in the first

Have some class people,” wrote Alan Prince on Facebook. “This was def(initely) too adult for my daughter,” wrote Susanne Bergeron. “Ke$ha’s ‘balls’ discussion was a prime

example of something that isn’t all ages.” The venue has shot back, saying parents should be aware of what their children are listening to. “We appreciate that Ke$ha’s show may be offensive to some, which is why signage was prominently posted to caution the audience,” Caesars posted on its Facebook page. “It is ultimately up to concert attendees to review an artist’s material before purchasing tickets so that they may make their own informed decision on what is age appropriate, as this is subjective. What may be offensive to some is acceptable and enjoyable by others.” A number of commenters on Facebook agreed with the casino. “Parents should have done their homework before bringing nine-year-olds,” said Rebecca Rospond.

TV beckons, but Luke Bryan sticks to music as he releases new album Country crooning. After winning entertainer of the year, the newly-minted superstar is defying conventional thinking Luke Bryan has taken an unusual approach to the business side of his career since winning the Academy of Country Music’s entertainer of the year in April: He’s turning down almost everything. Rather than cashing in on his win and successful ACM co-hosting gig with Blake Shelton, country music’s newest platinum-selling, arena-filling star has decided to leave sacks of money on the table, ignore television and double down on the live performances that have gotten him this far. Even Bryan can’t believe he’s doing it, but his logic is pretty unassailable. “It’s my first year in,” the

37-year-old Georgia native said. “I won entertainer of the year and I ain’t really been an entertainer yet, or what the definition of that is. I had the same feelings when I was asked to co-host with Blake. I turned the ACMs down the first time.” Bryan’s eventual change of heart paid off by helping him pull in the fan votes needed to win one of country music’s biggest awards. It was one of the most surprising upsets in the history of the ACMs — his competition included Shelton, Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean. The award is usually given to established performers at the top of the genre. They’re not only selling oodles of albums, but also headlining arena- and stadium-sized shows and representing country music in a positive way to the world — and they’ve been doing it for years. Bryan was just moving into that group. He reached platinum status with 2011’s Tailgates & Tanlines, and this week

releases Crash My Party, expected to be the year’s topselling country album. He’s been greeted with sellouts at his first arena tour this summer. Turns out the fans who voted for him back in April

decided it would be OK if the cart arrived at the same time as the horse. Bryan wants to cement that place in country music. “I’m getting really, really amazing TV opportunities

Breaking Bad. Bob Odenkirk is ready for a Saul Goodman spinoff Meredith Engel

Metro World News in New York City

Fans of Breaking Bad know that killing off major characters is nothing new to the series. Anyone who thought Bob Odenkirk’s character, the sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman, would get axed before the final eight episodes is in good company. Odenkirk has made it to at least this point in the series, and there’s talk about a possible spinoff for his character after the show draws to a close. But we’ll let the man himself tell you more about that, as well as the end of the series. Everyone’s got high expectations about this last season. How do you feel leading up to it? I’m gonna feel just like a fan feels, just like you or anyone who loves the show. I have not read the final episode ... I stuffed it through my trash so I wouldn’t be tempted. Once I finish shooting it I feel just like you do, where I can’t wait to see it. Even though the script has everything in it — all the visuals, all the moments — it’s still always a surprise when I watch it. It still gets me just like it gets any audience member. … I know I’m gonna be going crazy every week, waiting for the next one. … It’s a tribute to (creator) Vince Gilligan and the writers’ ability to weave a spell. Do you know how Saul’s story ends? Well, I like to think it doesn’t end, but ... I would say I pretty much know how Saul’s story ends. I don’t know ultimately how Walter White’s story ends. That’s what I avoided and even though I know everything that leads up to it, I just don’t know

the choices he makes in the final episode. So if Saul’s story doesn’t end, what’s all this talk of a spinoff? Yeah, you’re onto something (laughs). You know, look, for some reason people feel great affection toward Saul Goodman. They like him and they want him to carry on. I don’t know, Vince Gilligan should answer that question, or Peter Gould maybe — Peter’s one of the writers who wrote the first episode Saul appeared on, and whenever Vince talks about it with people he always talks about working with Peter on that. But you know, in his defense, he’s been completely 100 per cent focused on finishing this show and making it satisfying for the fans, and from what I think he hasn’t had a lot of time to flesh out any idea he has for a Saul Goodman spinoff. But I do believe that when he says he has an idea for it, I think he’s a pretty serious guy when it comes to that kinda talk, unlike a lot of people in show business. If he says he’s thinking about it, that’s a more real thing than 90 per cent of the stuff you’re hearing.

Detective Joe Geddes is a man who is finding himself in more ways than one. The new AMC cop drama, Low Winter Sun, pairs Geddes, played by English

actor Lennie James, with fellow Detroit detective, Frank Agnew, played by fellow Brit actor Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Zero Dark Thirty). The twosome murders a corrupt colleague, leaving Geddes searching to regain his moral centre — but alas, he and Agnew are assigned to find the murderer. “He’s trying to rescue himself and the rescue begins with the death of his partner, whom he kills,” James says of Geddes. “He has been letting himself

The Wire effect?

Will Low Winter Sun do for beleaguered Detroit what The Wire did for the resurgence of Baltimore? “Detroit is not just one of the characters, it’s a major character in this story,” emphasizes James. “If your police force, who are sworn to protect and serve, are killing each other in vats of water it says something about your city; it says something about your people.”

down for years and is trying to live up to his own expectations. He has a strong moral centre and he’s acted against it for far too long.” Low Winter Sun is based on a British mini-series of the same name that’s reset in Detroit. It’s far from a conventional cop drama, buddy saga or whodunit. “We know who did it,” says James. “Then, those two cops are put in place of investigating the crime they’ve committed. Our story is also about two guys unsolving a case as opposed to solving it.” James’ early career included playing the bungling wouldbe criminal in Guy Ritchie’s Snatch, and more recently, roles in The Walking Dead and last year’s Guy Pearce-starring

Lockout. James says he’s played many cops, but Geddes and his inner journey to salvation — not to mention this turnaround on the good-cop-bad- cop story — was a juicy role he relished. “The first step onto the road to redemption is a heinous act of violence, which for an actor is just gravy,” says James. “It’s what you want to play; the more complex the character, the more difficult the situations. I’m someone who gets bored very quickly, so I like to be interested. This one, you can’t drop the ball — there’s a tension that exists in this story that you can’t let sag. This job has taken some proper lifting,” James adds, using an English colloquialism for tackling hard work, “and I enjoyed that a lot.”

A native of Tennessee, Anson Mount is tired of the Southern stereotypes he’s used to seeing on camera. “It pisses me off,” says the 40-year-old actor, who plays the former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon on Hell on Wheels, which returned for its third season on AMC earlier this month. “It’s just the same old s— all the time: uneducated, incestuous, racist.” When Mount saw the script for Hell on Wheels, about the

Only a beer bro? Wild for just wine? Break out! Tips

Book. Go on, order that drink you’re “too good” for. You might just have your mind blown. ALison bowen

Metro World News in New York

Think outside the glass for a pleasant surprise.

istock

Wine drinkers might turn up their noses at a cold can of beer. And beer drinkers might have zero interest in a tall glass of cabernet. But this can change, promises certified wine educator Jim Laughren. Constantly asked by women how to interest boyfriends and husbands in opening a great bottle of wine instead of cracking a beer at the end of a long day, he authored A Beer Drinker’s Guide to Knowing and Enjoying Fine Wine. He is sure the two drink-

ing camps have something in common. “Wine drinkers can be just as bad as beer drinkers in their reluctance to cross the barrier,” he says. But he’s hoping both can taste the other side. How do you tug someone toward trying something new?

• Fine a new taste. The rule: Assess the palate. Does someone enjoy black coffee, coffee with cream and sugar or no coffee at all? “That tells you a lot about someone’s palate,” Laughren says. For example, someone drawn to a lighter drink probably wants to try something light on the other side of the equation.

• Beer suggestions for wine lovers. Red wine fans: saisons, doppelbocks and Belgian strong ales

• Wine suggestions for beer lovers. Light lager lovers: cava, sau-

White wine fans: wheat beers, pilsners and brown ales

“You should appeal to their adventurousness,” he says. Wine drinkers in particular might not realize all that goes into beer making — just as much complexity as wine making, Laughren promises. Adds Kevin Faerkin, som-

melier and general manager at the Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York City, “Generally if people say, ‘I don’t like beer,’ I would guarantee that they haven’t run the gamut of all the different kinds of beer there are in the world.”

Author caught up in Spider-Man’s web Q&A. The Night Gwen Stacy Died author talks about writing on the move and what inspired her to create this comic-influenced tale alison bowen

Metro World News in New York City

The Night Gwen Stacy Died is not your ordinary novel. Infusing a flair of superhero adventure, it follows a high school student slash gas station attendant, Sheila, who begins chatting with a young cab driver coming in to gas up. He calls himself Peter Parker. Next, he dubs her Gwen Stacy ­ — SpiderMan’s first love — and they eventually embark on a road trip, mixing together comic book plot and a real-life urge to save people. Author Sarah Bruni tells us what — including poring over comics in Uruguay — inspired her to spin this tale.

How did you get the idea for this book? It’s a very unique plot. I actually wrote a collection of short stories that was a part of my MFA thesis project, and there was one 25-page story that featured a young man who was donning the name Peter Parker and pushing the identity of one of Spider-Man’s girlfriends onto this young woman at a gas station. I didn’t really know what this guy was doing in my story. I was not a big comic book reader at all. I was sort of interested in someone being audacious enough to take these steps.

felt like every time I was sitting down to this, I was opening this time capsule. ‌ You see how important the story was to people at a certain time, especially a particular kind of male reader. You wrote this for years in several different cities. Did you ever think about moving on?

I wrote a collection of short stories, and then shortly after that I moved to San Francisco, signed with my agent. We were trying to do a novel in stories, then when it didn’t sell, I actually moved to Montevideo, Uruguay. That’s where I wrote the bulk of the novel manuscript. I went there thinking I had ditched the story completely and was

interested in starting something new. But I wanted to put myself in a place where I was completely removed from stimuli and had time to write, so I was thinking of it as a makeshift writer’s residency for myself. I brought all these SpiderMan comics with me, so I knew that there was a part of my mind that knew I wasn’t done with the story.

Young and carefree: The WWE’s first openly gay wrestler MELINDA TAUB

Metro World News in New York City

Professional wrestling doesn’t get a whole lot of ink around the ol’ Word, because wrestlers, as a rule, neither party with Justin Bieber nor appear naked on Game of Thrones (although they’re more than welcome to do either). But this story is too sweet not to share. TMZ caught up with WWE superstar Darren Young and asked him if he thought a gay wrestler could make it in the WWE. Young — who was

Simon Cowell

Divorce finalized by alleged mom of Cowell’s baby stands to get a little more than $2 million. “As I’ve said all along, my priority was resolving this quickly for the sake of our son,” Andrew says in a statement. “Lauren and I both love him very much and I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter in our lives.”

Lauren Silverman, the woman reportedly pregnant with Simon Cowell’s child, has finally reached a divorce settlement with her husband, Andrew Silverman, according to TMZ. The couple has agreed to joint custody of their seven-year-old son, and Lauren

remarkably good-natured about the whole thing, given that TMZ apparently ran him down at the baggage carousel in LAX — replied, “Absolutely. Look at me. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy.” Young seemed utterly cheerful about his revelation. “I just don’t think it matters. Does it matter to you?” he asked his interviewer, who responded, “Not one iota.” The WWE superstar added that he’s not worried about how his revelation will be received in the wrestling world. “I’m happy with myself. Some people might not like it, some people will like it,” he shrugged. Young is the first openly gay WWE wrestler, and the first ever pro wrestler to come out while signed to a major promotion.

Lost star Dominic Monaghan apparently doesn’t take rejection well. A young Los Angeles woman — who wishes to remain anonymous — says that she was on the receiving end of some vile and hurtful text messages from Monaghan after she turned him down for sex, according to Radar Online. One particularly rough message reads: “When did I ever say I wanted to have sex with you? You appear riddled with herpes and smell odd. I couldn’t invite

you to one of my three houses (because) I’d be nervous you would steal s—.” Monaghan confirms the texts are from him, but he says there’s more to the story. “I wonder if you are aware that she has been calling me for over two years when I have repeatedly asked her not to,” he tells the website. “Today I told her again via text that her behaviour was troubling to me and for her not to contact me.”

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

Pairing wine with a meal is one of life’s simple pleasures. But I bet the majority of you typically enjoy your vino as a standalone experience. Winemakers know this, and have been steering a lot of their juice in a direction that tastes best sipped over casual conversation. South Africa, long a producer of unique, valueoriented liquid, has been at the forefront of the wine-asa-cocktail trend; riding the wave by taking advantage of the distinctive personalities imparted into its wine by an exotic terroir and the utilization of oak to create unconventional flavours. The pinotage grape has been South Africa’s superstar for decades. It’s always made laid-back wines but, with innovative barrel aging, some can take on the dominating expression of chocolate and coffee. The Grinder 2012 Pinotage ($13.95 - $14.99) is java goodness in a glass, with balanced tannins, a ripe core of berry fruit and mocha finish. Definitely drinkable on its own, it’s a match for grilled meats and chocolaty desserts. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

High-jumper springs into record books Derek Drouin of Canada captured a bronze medal in the high jump at the world track and field championships in Moscow on Thursday. IAN WALTON/GETTY IMAGES

In Canadian company. Ontario’s Drouin joins two other Canucks with podium finishes at world track and field championships

He sent that message loud and clear Thursday at the world track and field championships, capturing another bronze in men’s high jump and setting a Canadian record in the process. The native of Corunna, Ont., cleared 2.38 metres to finish behind Bohdan Bondarenko of Ukraine, who won gold with a jump of 2.41. Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar took silver in 2.38, while reigning Olympic champion

Derek Drouin wanted everyone to know his Olympic bronze medal last summer was no fluke.

Setting a new record

Matthew Hughes of Oshawa, Ont., also broke a Canadian record, placing sixth in the 3,000-metre steeplechase in 8:11.64. Kenya’s Ezekiel Kemboi won his third straight gold.

Ivan Ukhov of Russia finished fourth at 2.35. “I wanted to prove this year

that I deserved to be on the podium in London 2012, feels good to have accomplished that goal,” Drouin said. Drouin’s bronze at the London Olympics was the lone Canadian medal in track and field last summer, but he has company in Moscow. Decathlete Damian Warner (bronze) and heptathlete Brianne Theisen-Eaton (silver) have also been on the podium at the world championships.

Raonic falls short of quarters With a bothersome injury blunting his lethal serve, Canada’s Milos Raonic lost his bid for a second straight quarter-final appearance at a Masters 1000 event with a 7-6 (5), 6-4 loss to American John Isner Thursday at the Western & Southern Open. Coming off a trip to the finals in last week’s Rogers Cup, Raonic was treated for a pinched nerve in his neck after five games of the match. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Starting pitcher Mark Buehrle outlasted Jake Peavy on Thursday as the Toronto Blue Jays edged the Boston Red Sox 2-1 for their second win in a row. Buehrle (9-7) gave up 10 hits over seven innings but allowed just one run in a solid outing for the Blue Jays (56-65). Peavy (9-5) was also up to the task, striking out four and giving up two runs — one earned — on five hits over six innings. Boston (72-51) had no trouble getting on base, but struggled to bring home its runners, stranding 12 on base. Jose Bautista earned an infield single when Will Middlebrooks misplayed the ball at third base. Edwin Encarnacion’s single up the middle then advanced Bautista to second. Lawrie drove Bautista home with another single to centre field, advancing Encarnacion to third with no outs. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Alfie: Contract talks ‘went nowhere’ NHL. Ex-Sens captain explains the fallout that led to his exit

Quoted

Fans hoping to get a clearer picture of why Daniel Alfredsson left the Ottawa Senators for the Detroit Red Wings may never get the answers they’re looking for, but it appears money played a major role in the decision. Speaking to reporters in Ottawa on Thursday, Alfredsson admitted contract negotiations — or lack thereof — were a big factor in his choice to sign with the Red Wings as a free agent on July 5 rather than remain with the only NHL team he’s ever played for. The 40-year-old former Ottawa captain explained that his last contract had been structured under the assumption he would retire before the final year of the deal, which was for $1 mil-

“I wish I could take that comment back, I guess. The reality is it’s two great teams.”

lion US. “When I did my last contract for four years ending in the (2012-13) season, I was asked to help the team manage the salary cap by adding on an extra year to my contract. I agreed. Each side fully expected I would retire and not play the 2012-13 season,” Alfredsson said dur-

ing a news conference at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. “However, after the 2012 season, I told the Sens I wanted to play another season. I also asked to look at a possible extension for this upcoming season at a fair amount to balance out the two years for both of us. They agreed. “Sadly, the contract negotiations went nowhere, but I played out the season as I had promised and I believe this past season was, in my view, a very special one.”

Aries

March 21 - April 20 Are you happy with the way your life is going? If not then you must do something about it. Whether you see it as hard or easy, your life is, ultimately, nothing more than a choice. Reality will follow that choice.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Don’t waste time on things you cannot change. You have only a limited amount of time and energy at your disposal so your aims must be limited too. Focus on what you are good.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 See what happens today as a challenge rather than as a setback. Even if a friend or colleague lets you down, you should look on the bright side: It means one less person with whom to share the rewards!

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 You may have to admit, if only to yourself, that a particular aim is going to stay beyond your reach, at least for now. So what? You’ve got plenty of others to go after.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 There is no such thing as luck and the sooner you realize that, the better your “luck” is likely to be. A social occasion will bring opportunities to meet new people and make important new contacts.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 There will be chaos today as those around you realize they have only limited time to get things done. Sit back with a smug look on your face as you are on top of your tasks.

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 The entry of Venus, your ruler, into your sign will encourage you to believe that life is good and about to get even better. Believing it will make it true.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You may lack enthusiasm today but that is not necessarily a bad thing. You have been so hard-working in recent weeks that you could probably do with a break. Take it.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Even if you feel you have not achieved as much as you should have recently, don’t let it worry you. In a matter of days you will be doing things you never dreamed you would be able to master. Have fun.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 As Venus changes signs today, it’s a good time to resolve outstanding disputes you may have with people in positions of power. Next time, try not to rub them the wrong way!

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Someone will make you an offer you find hard to refuse but refuse it you must because the planets warn it will mean a mountain of extra work for you. The less you have to worry about the better.
