The municipal councillor for Bedford says a loophole in HRM’s planning regulations has allowed a developer to legally clearcut hundreds of acres of land near Sandy Lake. Coun. Tim Outhit said Armco Communities hasn’t applied for a development permit for the property off Hammonds Plains Road, and so isn’t bound by any municipal laws. “It was quite a surprise to me and some of my colleagues … when we figured out it didn’t apply until the development process began.” A handful of area residents gathered at the site Thursday to protest the clearcutting, saying it’s jeopardizing “fragile” land. “Sandy Lake is an absolutely

turning the community against them,” he said. Armco’s website states the land is being cleared so that development can begin as soon as the city’s planning process is complete. “Areas for cutting have been assessed and any potential wetlands have been carefully delineated to ensure these lands are not disturbed,” states the site. Armco’s vice-president of sales said the company is staying in touch with the community. “We met with them, we told them we would meet with them as the planning progress continues,” said Chris Fourgnaud. Outhit said closing the loophole could happen as part of the five-year review of the Regional Plan. “That’s one way to deal with it, but of course that would be for going forward,” he said. “That wouldn’t be retroactive.”

Mic Mac Mall pulls ‘sexist’ ads

Back-to-school gaffe. Apology comes after critics denounce ads for portrayal of young girls

Mic Mac Mall is apologizing after launching a series of back-to-school shopping ads that provoked a torrent of outrage from people who denounced the campaign as sexist for depicting young girls in a dim light. The mall yanked the ads Thursday following a public backlash that reverberated on social media and even garnered the attention of popular U.S. website BuzzFeed. “Mic Mac Mall is sincerely sorry for offending its customers,” Rebecca Logan, the mall’s marketing director, said Thursday in a statement. “We’ve heard what our

customers have to say and we understand why you’re angry. It was never intended to be offensive.” Logan declined requests for an interview, saying the mall would make no further comments beyond its statement.

The ad campaign, which ran for a week on radio, television, billboards and online, featured illustrations of young girls with lines like “My favourite class? Shop!” and “Mixing patterns — now that’s a science!”

Another ad said: “Social studies? Does posting my new boots on Facebook count?” The campaign generated a fierce response from people who said it reinforced gender stereotypes of young women as ditzes interested only in shopping and not education. “I just feel like it’s not really fair to portray women as the only thing they’re excited about going back to school is shopping and mixing patterns,” said Kierra Gallant, a 19-year-old science student at St. Francis Xavier University. Sarah Paynter, a student at University of King’s College, said she found the campaign sexist but “not shocking.” In an effort to regain customer trust, Logan said the mall plans on donating $5,000 to a yet-to-be-chosen local organization that focuses on empowering girls.

Take kitty. Society says wait lists are swelling RUTH DAVENPORT

ruth.davenport@metronews.ca

The SPCA in Nova Scotia has issued an urgent appeal for help with a boom in the number of cats coming into alreadycrowded shelters. The society’s director of animal care said there are currently more than 1,000 cats on shelter wait-lists across the province.

“We are kind of in our second flow of kittens being born … which is bottlenecking a lot of our resources,” said Sandra Flemming Thursday. “Blah.” Although the adoption rate has climbed significantly in the last year, Flemming said that’s just making more room in the shelter for other cats in need. Flemming said the shelters are currently triaging their intake, prioritizing sick and injured animals, newborn kittens and pregnant cats — but turning away any owned animals. She said members of the public can help with the crisis

Items shelter needs

Three most-needed items at the provincial shelter: • Kitty litter (non-clumping) • Wet/canned cat food • Bleach

through donations, by adopting or by becoming a foster family. “I think right now we are probably running around 250 in foster … so if we didn’t have that capacity, those are 250

animals that would have been refused,” she said. Foster families take animals into their home until they’re adopted. The SPCA covers the cost of all supplies and any medical treatment, so it’s costneutral to the foster family. Flemming also said more government support is also needed to help shelters keep up with the recurring flood of felines. “We receive zero government funding,” she said. “There’s just not enough government support for us to have the resources to bring all these animals in.”

The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal has rejected a bid for bail by a Halifax man sentenced last year to six and a half years in prison in the death of his infant daughter. In a written decision released Thursday, Justice Peter Bryson says Ashiqur Rahman has not proven that his continued detention pending an appeal of his case is not necessary in the public interest. Bryson says Rahman’s lack of candour with the court raises concerns about his willingness to honour the conditions of an interim release. Rahman was sentenced last August after being convicted of manslaughter and aggravated assault in the July 2009 death of seven-week-old Aurora Breakthrough.

‘Phenomenal’ new C.P. Allen High School almost ready Bedford West. Complex features gym, football field, art studios, learning commons haley ryan

haley.ryan@metronews.ca

In two weeks, teenagers will be opening lime-green lockers, practising yoga and studying near fruit trees in the new Charles P. Allen High School in Bedford. Terry Smith-Lamothe, an architect with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, showed off the building to Education Minister Ramona Jennex, school-board members and the media on Thursday. “It really is phenomenal,” CPA principal Stephanie Bird said before the tour. “This school offers educational opportunities that either didn’t exist in our previous school, or have been completely enhanced.” About 1,300 kids start on Sept. 6 and will make use of the dance/martial-arts studio, textile and nutrition labs, large gymnasium and three floors of classroom space. The cafeteria opens onto CPA’s grassy courtyard, where students can relax on boulders from the site and admire cherry trees and blueberry bushes. “I can imagine a jazz quintet sitting down and playing music … and entertaining people at lunchtime,” Smith-

Lamothe said. Jennex said the common areas outside each classroom are an important learning feature, where groups can work on a project while being supervised by teachers looking through a window to the hall. Smith-Lamothe said education has moved beyond his day, where there were rows of desks, and the teacher at the front with a blackboard. “It’s a whole different kind of teaching paradigm that will be expressed in this school,” he said. About 20 per cent of the materials used in the school are recycled. These include doors made from excess wood strips, and the plastic surface beneath the gym floor made from yogurt containers. “If you ate yogurt in the last year, you probably contributed to this floor,” SmithLamothe said with a laugh. Jennex said the school was finished within budget, at a cost of $37 million from the province and $11 million HRM dollars. The school and attached community centre are at 200 Innovation Dr., just past the new BlackBerry building off Hammonds Plains Road. Residents can use meeting rooms, a gymnasium, dance studio and the food lab for cooking classes in the centre. “(There’s) a pride factor because it is a public building. This is Nova Scotia building a building for … its future voters, future citizens,” Smith-Lamothe said. “It belongs to all of us.”

Justin Trudeau: Yes, he inhaled And he’s not apologizing. Liberal leader says marijuana prohibition policy costs law enforcement $500 million a year Justin Trudeau says, yes, he’s inhaled a few times and, yes, he was already a member of Parliament the last time he did and, no, he has no regrets about it. The Liberal leader laid out his past marijuana use in a lengthy interview and in an exchange with reporters Thursday in which he made no apologies. He said he’s smoked pot five or six times in his life — including three years ago during a backyard get-together — and never really liked it much. Now that he’s come clean about using pot, he said, he’d like to move on and talk about the hundreds of thousands of people who have a criminal record for it. Trudeau sought to shift the focus onto his policy of legalizing marijuana when asked by reporters about his drug use and whether it had been a mistake.

In-vitro fertilization

Test-tube babies could be made for 200 euros Since the first test-tube baby was born more than three decades ago, in-vitro fertilization has evolved into a highly sophisticated lab procedure. Now, scientists are testing a simpler and cheaper method. Many would-be parents spend thousands of dollars for IVF, which involves pricey incubators and extensive screening. But European and American scientists say a simplified version of the procedure aimed at developing countries could be done for about 200 euros ($265 US) with generic fertility drugs and basic lab equipment that would fit inside a shoebox.

Deadly derailment

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau answers questions from the media in Quebec City on Thursday. Francis Vachon/the canadian press

“No, it wasn’t a mistake,” Trudeau told journalists in Quebec City. “I do not consume cannabis. I am not a big consumer at all. I tried it.... I’ve never tried other types of hard drugs. I am not a consumer of marijuana but, yes, I’ve already tried it. I used it — maybe five or six times in my life.” He said he believes public opinion has moved on and he’s confident that Canadians will judge him less harshly than his political opponents. What matters now, Trudeau said, is ending a mari-

juana prohibition policy that he says costs law enforcement $500 million a year and has left 475,000 people with criminal records since the Conservatives took office in 2006. He has said that issue touched his own family. Trudeau originally made the marijuana admission in a candid interview with the Huffington Post, in which he also revealed that his youngest brother, Michel, was charged with marijuana possession shortly before his 1998 death in an avalanche.

Her jaw was broken, her clothes were drenched and she was face-to-face with a bear. It was the night of July 14, the first of 12 the woman (whose name Metro is withholding because police allege she is the victim of a sexual assault), would spend lost in the bush. According to RCMP, the

woman had been sexually assaulted by a friend hours before after the truck they were travelling in became stuck on the reserve’s north end. It’s alleged he punched her in the face, breaking her jaw but she managed to escape. Speaking for the first time since the incident on Thursday, the woman said she became immediately disoriented after she was hurt. Then the rain started coming down.

“I found a den,” she said. “I went inside and then a bear came. She smelled me up.... I kept my eyes locked (on her), I didn’t even want to blink.” The woman claims the bear then walked away but she continued to hear it nearby. By morning, it was gone. But the ordeal was far from over. “I just kept telling myself, ‘You’re not going to die,’” she said. She made sure to keep her clothes dry but also hopped

into the river from time to time to ride the current, a faster method of moving than by foot. Finally, on July 26, the woman was found. She was rushed to hospital and spent weeks recovering. Even now, her jaw is not healing properly. Still, she’s just happy to be alive. “I’ll never forget the bear,” she said, before adding, “I have got a second chance at life and am so grateful for that.”

Police say James Lee DiMaggio abducted Hannah Anderson and fled to the Idaho wilderness before he was killed by authorities. In her first interview since her dramatic rescue Aug. 10, Hannah didn’t say how her

family died or describe her interactions with DiMaggio during the manhunt. The girl said she wrote to DiMaggio a year ago and he guided her through a rough patch with her mother. “Me and him would talk about how to deal with it, and I’d tell him how I felt about it, and he’d help me through it. They weren’t anything bad,” she said. the associated press

Mubarak’s release from jail threatens to stoke turmoil Egypt. Decision to place former leader under house arrest instead of letting him go free designed to ease criticism

Egypt’s ousted leader Hosni Mubarak was released from prison Thursday and transported to a military hospital in a Cairo suburb where he will be held under house arrest, according to state TV. Thursday’s move followed a court decision ordering the

Germany. Report blames bias for delay in probe of neo-Nazi murder spree A far-right murder spree went undetected for years because German security services made scores of errors, partially because of institutional bias against immigrants, a parliamentary investigation concluded Thursday. The report follows a 19-month review of how police and intelligence agencies failed to stop the National Socialist Underground group from killing eight Turks, a Greek and a policewoman between 2000 and 2007. The group was only linked to the killings after two main members died in a murdersuicide after a botched 2011 bank robbery. The third main suspect, Beate Zschaepe, went on trial in May. Committee members said police and domestic intelligence agencies were quick to attribute the slayings to organized crime by immigrant groups — never properly considering the possibility that the killings could have been racially motivated and linked.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Official’s comments unacceptable, Israel apologizes to Japan Israel has distanced itself from a government official who made crude comments about the Second World War nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Responding to a Japanese request for clarification, a top Israeli envoy told Japan that the comments were “unacceptable” and that the official had been suspended. Danny Seaman was a government public relations official and posted on

Facebook that he was “sick” of “self-righteous” Japanese and international commemorations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims. He said those events were the results of “Japanese aggression.” Israeli diplomatic officials said Thursday that the clarifications were made last week.

put him back behind bars. He also is being investigated in two other corruption cases. The release threatened to stoke the unrest as the Arab nation is already roiled in a crisis over a coup against Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Space station gets new telescope mount Technical difficulties. Two Russian cosmonauts install a platform for a yet-tobe-launched telescope Cosmonauts participate in a spacewalk outside the International Space Station. courtesy nasa

A pair of spacewalking Russian cosmonauts installed a new telescope mount on the International Space Station on

Thursday, despite a flaw in the device. Fyodor Yurchikhin and Aleksandr Misurkin — making their second spacewalk in under a week — initially gave up trying to plug in the platform for a yet-to-be-launched telescope. But after more than an hour of discussion at Russian Mission Control, the cosmonauts installed it. Yurchikhin and Misurkin re-

ported that the base of the platform appeared to be misaligned because it wasn’t assembled properly on the ground. The problem could prevent the future telescope from pointing in the right direction. But engineers near Moscow determined the misalignment could be overcome at a later date. The swivelling platform will hold an optical telescope that

will be launched in November and installed by spacewalking cosmonauts. The cosmonauts also ran into some difficulty tightening some antenna covers. Because of a flyaway cover earlier this week, the cosmonauts double-checked the remaining shields to make sure they were secure. At least two were loose, one by a lot.

U.S. suspends spacewalks

FACEOFF

THE MAN WHO HACKED ZUCKERBERG Mark Zuckerberg photo, Left: justin Sullivan/Getty Images; Khalil Shreateh photo: Facebook

Kieron monks

Metro World News in London, U.K.

When an unemployed Palestinian programmer named Khalil Shreateh hacked into billionaire Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s personal profile on the social network, the message he posted was respectful. “Dear Mark Zuckerberg,” it began, “First sorry for breaking your privacy....” The 30-year-old from Hebron had discovered a glitch that allowed him to post on any wall on the network. Facebook usually provides $500 US rewards for identifying such a weakness, but did not pay out in Shreateh’s case, saying that he had violated protocol. In stepped the ethical hacker community, and over $12,000 US has been crowdsourced to reward the Palestinian, who was in a good mood when we spoke.

You could have written anything. Were you tempted to make the message spectacular? No, because it was a serious vulnerability, but I was forced to write after Facebook ignored my first and second reports. I was frustrated. Were you angry with Zuckerberg? I admire Mark, and anyone who starts a project like that. Mark built Facebook in college, it did well, he got famous and everyone would want to be like him. I have a lot of respect. Does this inspire you to hack more famous people and companies? I will keep watching for new vulnerabilities and report them, as I have done many times before. I will not break anyone’s privacy and hope that every hacker uses what they find the right way and not for

Surveillance. Brazilians say no way to NSA — but cheating app is just fine Brazilians were outraged when they learned their country was a top target of the U.S. National Security Agency’s overseas spying operation, with data from billions of calls and emails swept up in Washington’s topsecret surveillance program. Yet when it comes to spying on philandering lovers, all high-tech weapons appear to be fair game — at least to the tens of thousands of Brazilians who downloaded the Boyfriend Tracker app to their phones before it was removed from the

Google Play app store last week, apparently in response to complaints about privacy abuses and its potential to be used for extortion or even stalking. Functions include sending the person doing the tracking updates on their partner’s location and forwarding duplicates of text message traffic from the targeted phone. There is even a command that allows a user to force the target phone to silently call their own, so they can listen in on what the person is saying. The Associated Press

the black market. Is this type of hacking very popular where you’re from? Will you inspire more of it? I can’t answer that because intelligence people will come after me (laughs). But many are doing this everywhere. I hope it will inspire not only in Palestine as everybody needs these skills. How have your friends and family reacted? I want to say thanks to the hacker community for their donations, I really appreciate it. My family was worried I would be in jail and never have another job, but I thought I was helping people. What are you planning to do with the money? You cannot keep money in Palestine — I am very popular now. My family want me to get married, but I don’t. Market Minute

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Be afraid, be very afraid, cuz You’re Next! Home-invasion horror. Lack of redeeming social values aside, this disturbing movie will have you peeking through your fingers Richard: Mark, I don’t know what it says about me, but I really liked You’re Next. It’s disturbing, violent and without any redeeming social value, but I enjoyed sitting in the theatre with my hands over my eyes, afraid of what I might see next. I’m not usually a fan of head trauma, but from what I saw as I peeked through my fingers,

it worked well. You? Mark: Richard, I found it one of the best movies of its type ever. Home invasion films are my kind of scary because it could — and does — happen. But I did find some redeeming social value in it. I thought it turned out to be a sly satire on family dynamics and materialism. Without revealing too many plot twists — and I loved them all — this movie starts as one thing and becomes something a little deeper. And, yes, I don’t like to admit it, but I was scared through and through. RC: It’s hard to discuss without giving away a major plot twist, but I will say there is a Manson Family aspect to the

story that really creeped me out. That and the anxiety-inducing John Carpenter style score throbbing in the background. It’s all effective but it is the idea behind the movie that is truly disturbing. MB: Let’s not leave out the creepy animal masks! And I learned a lot from the movie, like how much can be accomplished with a two-by-four and a simple set of nails. In fact, I just got back from the hardware store. I’m ready! RC: It is a lesson in survivalism to be sure, but keep in mind how it works out for everyone. I think I’ll stick to calling 911. Lessons aside, I did like that while there are a number of hysterical charac-

ters here — who wouldn’t be upset when your friends and family are being randomly murdered? — the hero, if you can use that word to describe someone who kills a person with a blender, is a woman. So often in these movies women are the scream queens while the men do the heavy lifting. Here, the only person with any self-preservation instincts is female. MB: I think a blender is a perfect murder weapon for a woman — very Martha Stewart, in fact. Yes, this movie does have a strong woman at its centre, and it’s set up nicely in the beginning, with the family sneering at her for her survivalist training.

SCENE

Nothing ruins a family reunion like an invasion of masked killers. On the occasion of their parents’ 35th wedding anniversary, the Davidson kids and assorted significant others gather at a remote Tudor mansion — is there any other type in these kinds of movies? — to enjoy dinner and one another, but instead end up in a fight for their lives. Only one of the guests, Erin (Sharni Vinson), has the know-how to protect herself. But will it be enough?

Wong Kar Wai takes on the Grandmaster China’s past gets intense makeover. Chinese director gives an action movie spin to the history of modern kung fu with The Grandmaster

ned ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar Wai takes a fantastical look at the history of his nation through the lens of kung fu with The Grandmaster, about Yip Man (Tony Leung), the father of modern kung fu

who eventually taught Bruce Lee. But first, according to the film, he had to wrestle with China’s changing political climate and go through a lot of gorgeously staged fights. This film is “inspired by a true story.” How much historical accuracy did you go for? It’s quite accurate. The only

thing I invented was the character of Gong Er (played by Zhang Ziyi). This is a fictional figure, it’s not a real person. But in fact this character is based on several remarkable women at that time. When China was going through the changes from the monarchy to the republic, there were a lot of great men, and at the same time there were also

remarkable women coming from all walks of life. Before then women were taking a much more minor role. They had to be a good daughter, good wife, good mother, and at that point you see women trying to have their own rights. The film examines how kung fu used to be incredibly exclusionary — solely an upper class pursuit. In the traditional sense, martial arts were not for poor people. To practise martial arts you needed to be extremely wealthy because you couldn’t do anything else. You had to practise — like, they had specific hours, like three o’clock in the morning and then three o’clock in the afternoon. Not too hot, not too cold. And then there are so many formalities. People visit you, you have to have a big party. When they leave, you have to send them with gifts. All these expenses, it’s a big thing.

What does the Chinese film industry make of Hollywood films like Iron Man 3 participating more with the country’s filmmaking world and audience? A welcome growth or a threat? I always find it very silly to say, “As we are invaded by Hollywood” because we’ve been in this business for a long time. The only thing that’s important is to keep the audience coming back to the cinema. What do you make of the rising importance of the global audience for Hollywood? Now we see very clearly that the film industry cannot rely on a single market. Even for a Hollywood film, they cannot live on the domestic market alone. They need the international markets. So that’s why there’s more and more focus on the Chinese market, because it’s growing so fast. It becomes a major market for here, for everywhere.

The World’s End Director. Edgar Wright Stars. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman

••••• A teenage pub crawl with four mates was the highlight of Gary King’s (Simon Pegg) life. Twenty years later an attempt to relive that past glory becomes less about nostalgia and more about survival when the locals are revealed to be robots. Entertaining and inventive, The World’s End isn’t as laugh-out-loud funny as the first two parts of director Edgar Wright’s trilogy, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but its thematic core — the difficulty of growing up — makes it the most mature of his films. richard crouse

Open Water (2003) Based on a true story, this thriller is a stripped-down seatshifter about two scuba-divers stranded in shark-infested waters. The actors actually filmed alongside hungry sharks making Open Water, perhaps the only movie less frightening to watch than to star in.

Freddy vs. Jason (2003) This official mash-up of legend-

to the optimistic outlook. Scary Lows Piranha 3D (2010) Nobody was expecting this cheesy remake to see Oscar recognition, but the schlocky shocker about a lake terrorized by man-eating piranha is more about skin than scares. When your film’s centrepiece is a feeding frenzy during a wet T-shirt contest, August seems like the obvious trash bin for that kind of gratuitous gore. Snakes on a Plane (2006) Despite the fact this Samuel L. Jackson thriller became a pop-culture phenomenon long before it hit theatres (thanks to its tacky title), the amphibious flick didn’t meet its acquired Internet buzz. Then again, maybe all that pre-release hype just had potential moviegoers thinking “I’ve had it with hearing about these motherf—ing snakes on this motherf—ing plane.”

You’re Next (in theatres this weekend) This year’s entry into the August annals of horror cinema, You’re Next holds much promise. It was picked up in a bidding war after it screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. Favourable early reviews about the thriller’s fresh spin on the home invasion add

Breaking Bad ends You and a friend. with tears for creator London, England. Happy ending? Vince Gilligan talks about bringing the series to a close Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

With Vince Gilligan’s groundbreaking Breaking Bad ending its run after 62 episodes, we talked to the brain behind the series about what fans can expect — without giving away too much. He scrapped the original ending long ago: “I’m very impressed with J.K. Rowling for knowing where Harry Potter was going to end. That is impressive,” he says. “I had ideas, in early going when I was writing the pilot all by myself, of where it would all end, and I discarded them pretty quickly once I hired my six writers. This last year, in fact, where we knew we had these final 16 episodes, we went through many, many possibilities. In fact, we went through every possibility we could think of because we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned. We wanted to think of every possible outcome. That’s why it took way longer than I thought it would take.” Writing the finale brought tears to his eyes: “I cried because it was over. I was in my condo in Albuquerque, writing the very last

page of the last episode — I was writing the very last paragraph, in fact — and I started to tear up,” he remembers. “It was because I knew that is it. I was never going to get to write that character again. I mean, not on Breaking Bad. It was a hard-fought battle, and it was a result of thousands and thousands of hours of work and emotion, and I teared up because as hard as it was those six years, I knew in that moment I was going to be very sad it was over. And I was and I am sad. But I feel right that it ended when it did, creatively.”

There won’t be a movie: “I’d be very surprised. Every show is different, and I think it’s wonderful when there’s a movie version of a TV show,” he says. “But I always felt for this one show, for Breaking Bad, that it would be a bit of an injustice to the show itself, to what we were trying to build all these years, for it to end in a fashion that didn’t feel complete and satisfying on the small screen. We’re leaving it all on the field with these final eight episodes.” It doesn’t have to end poorly for everyone: “I have to be careful the way I answer these questions, because I don’t want to ruin anything for anybody, but I can tell you that the writers and I, we’re not out to punish any character,” he offers. “There’s the old saying that it’s very easy to extract emotion from an audience by being mean to a child or beating a puppy

with a stick or something. We were not trying to go for those kind of feelings. We looked at these episodes as our last chance to end the story in as satisfying a manner as possible. The best answer I can give is that I’m very satisfied by the ending. That is not to say it’s a happy ending, nor a sad ending — nor to give any promise of how one will feel emotionally when it’s over. But it is to say that I hope it feels proper. Fitting. It feels fitting to me.” J. Crew

File this one under ‘Huh, OK’ J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler will have a small cameo on this Sunday’s episode of Breaking Bad. Look for him as a customer in Walter White’s car wash, if that’s the sort of thing you would find exciting to look for. So how did this synergy between the decidedly unglamorous Breaking Bad and preppy mother ship J. Crew come about? Apparently, Drexler had a meeting with some Sony Television producers, and when they learned that he was obsessed with the show, they insisted that he make an appearance. MELINDA TAUB/mwn

Brandy’s ego bruised as she plays to empty stadium the word

Dorothy Robinson scene@metronews.ca

Poor Brandy. The singer performed to an empty, 90,000-capacity stadium last weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa, as part of the Man-

dela Sports & Culture Day. Due to poor publicity, the crowd left after the football and rugby matches, not realizing — or maybe they did? — that Brandy was set to perform. Per the tweet of @Kabomo, a South African musician, “Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on. She sulked after two songs and walked off.” Which, you know, is more than I would have done. I would have looked out and hightailed it to a bar where I would then sit for the next 30 years of my life and think about how it all went wrong.

Kanye faces lawsuit after allegedly punching paparazzo Kanye West is facing a lawsuit from a paparazzo over allegedly attacking him outside Los Angeles International Airport, according to TMZ. Plaintiff Daniel Ramos claims that “without warning or provocation,” West “suddenly attacked, punching (the plaintiff) and attempting to wrestle the camera from” Ramos’ hands, according to the filing. Ramos’ attorney, Gloria Allred, claims that Ramos fell to his knees on the ground “with enough force that he sustained injuries to his right hip, as well as accompanying pain and emotional distress.” He is seeking unspecified damages.

Hot dogs must hate hamburgers. Though they’re the yin and yang of the home barbecue scene, take a step off your deck and gourmet burgers are selling for a premium at fancy boutique restos while dogs are relegated to the kids menu. Not that hot dogs can’t hold their own when it comes to haute cuisine. In my mind, the whole concept of a meal in an elongated bun was designed for getting creative with elaborate toppings (and I’m not just talking ketchup). Finding a wine that will stand strong against a barrage of eclectic flavours piled on top of a well-cooked wiener is a challenge worthy of The Amazing Race. I like the versatility of the moscato grape. Originating in Italy, it’s synonymous with a slightly sweet style of white wine that’s become the darling of winemakers the world over. Australians love it, and Jacob’s Creek 2012 Moscato ($9.95 to $13.49) offers a mix of melon and pineapple that’s a perfect foil for anything a spicy, sharp, salty or sweet layer across your designer dog.

Keep it as cool as a cucumber Have you noticed how big and bold and robust salads have become? It’s as though salads no longer can be content to be on the side and complement the rest of the meal. Most recipes these days seem to insist the salad be the meal. Which can be nice, particularly in the heat of summer. But sometimes a salad needs to play another role. Sometimes it just needs to help us appreciate the other foods. That’s where this Pressed Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream comes in.

1.

Slice both cucumbers and the onion as thinly as possible, then mix them together in a large bowl. Sprinkle the salt over the vegetables.

This recipe serves six. matthew mead/ the associated press

Side. Pickled Green Beans

2. Using your hands, gently

knead and press the vegetables. Don’t crush or mash them, just gently work the vegetables in the bowl.

3.

After 2 to 4 minutes of kneading, there should be a large amount of water in the bowl. Pour off and discard the water.

4.

Stir in the sour cream, dill, lemon zest and juice, garlic powder and black pepper. The salad can be made up to 4 hours in advance. If so, prepare the dressing separately and refrigerate in a separate container from the cucumbers. Just before serving, drain the cucumbers again, then mix in the dressing. The Associated Press

Ingredients • 2 large English cucumbers • 1 small red onion • 1 tsp salt • 1/2 cup sour cream

31

• 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon • 1/2 tsp garlic powder • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, shallot, allspice, black pepper, red pepper flakes, mustard seeds and dill seeds. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. 2. Add the green beans and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. 3. Once cooled, the green beans can be jarred (with some of the liquid) and refrigerated for up to 5 days.

The Associated Press

Ingredients • 3/4 cup white balsamic or cider vinegar • 1/3 cup sugar • 1 tsp salt • 1 large shallot, sliced • 1/2 tsp allspice • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper • Pinch red pepper flakes • 1 tsp yellow mustard seeds, lightly crushed • 1/4 tsp dill seeds, lightly crushed • 1 lb green beans, trimmed

The Moynihan brothers had slightly different approaches arriving at the Halifax Mooseheads training camp this month. For the younger sibling, 16-year-old Connor, he was preparing to sign with the Herd if given the opportunity. Daniel, 17, was a little less sure about giving up his NCAA eligibility. After all, the Windham, N.H., natives saw their uncle Ryan Moynihan play Division I hockey with Cornell. Their dad, who also dreamed of playing in the league, was hoping his boys would follow in Ryan’s footsteps. But things changed when the forwards hit the ice at Cole Harbour Place, the Herd’s training-camp facility. The boys, who made the trip with their parents, felt an immediate fit.

More action

• The Halifax Mooseheads are back in action this weekend as pre-season play continues. • On Friday in Truro at 7 p.m., Halifax will take on the Moncton Wildcats. On Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Moncton Coliseum, the Mooseheads and Wildcats will square off again. Halifax is 2-0 so far in exhibition play.

“It’s a slower game here,” Daniel said. “Where we come from it’s more chip, slash, playing full speed. Here it’s about slowing down the play, making the right plays and passes, getting to the right spots. It’s more professional.” Connor, a six-foot-three 205-pounder, says he felt privileged joining the reigning Memorial Cup champions. “We’re trying out for a Memorial Cup champion team. We knew it was going to be real tough,” said the Mooseheads’ 2013 fifthround pick.

“I love it. The guys are great, coaches are awesome and I love the rink. I can’t wait for the season opener.” Mooseheads forward Daniel Moynihan

Brothers Daniel, left, and Connor Moynihan are eager to get things going with the Halifax Mooseheads this season. ANDREW RANKIN/METRO

They signed with the Herd last Saturday. That afternoon, Connor stepped up in the Mooseheads’ impressive pre-season opener against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. Pushing the pace at both ends of the ice, he finished with a goal and an assist in the Mooseheads’ 7-3 victory, while his brother chipped in

with a helper. In Sunday’s rematch, Daniel followed suit with a goal and an assist of his own in the Herd’s 3-2 victory. While Daniel plays more of a finesse game, Connor loves being physical, likening his style to that of the Boston Bruins’ Milan Lucic. They believe the Mooseheads will be the team to

beat this season. “We’re excited. We have a really strong, team, I think,” Connor said. They insist there will be no sibling rivalry. Well, not during the hockey season, anyway. “Once we get back home I might let him know that I got more goals than him,” Daniel said with a laugh.

Price tag keeps Team Canada off ice: Yzerman Insurance costs. Potential Team Canada players will settle for information sessions and bonding activities

Steve Yzerman would prefer to get Canada’s players on the ice at the upcoming orientation camp for the Olympic men’s hockey team. But the price tag to insure players against injury is too high for Hockey Canada, so the four-day camp starting on Sunday in Calgary will consist of informational meetings about the Games in Sochi, Russia, and fostering team chemistry off the ice. “Not going on the ice isn’t the end of the world,” said Yzerman, the executive director of the national men’s team. “There’s lot of other things that need to be done in preparation, logistically going through how

No other team has more. 3 — Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock and forwards Patrice Bergeron, Eric Staal and Jonathan Toews are members of the “Triple Gold Club,” each having won Olympic gold, a world title and a Stanley Cup. 27 years, 6 months, 25 days — Average age of players on Canada’s roster.

LPGA

Ko takes share of lead in title defence Lydia Ko is back on top of the Canadian Women’s Open leaderboard. The 16-year-old Ko, the winner last year at Vancouver Golf Club at an LPGA Tour-record age of 15 years, 4 months, shot a 5-under 65 on Thursday in perfect conditions at Royal Mayfair in Edmonton for a share of the

first-round lead with Angela Stanford and the Netherland’s Christel Boeljon. Ko, the South Koreanborn New Zealander, had six birdies and a bogey. She birdied the opening hole, though she figured that might be a bad omen. “When I start off with a birdie I haven’t really played that well, so yeah, I was kind of nervous that I did make a birdie on the first,” she said.

Killing of Odin Lloyd

Hernandez indicted on murder charge A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a man whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park near his home.

33

The grand jury returned the indictment on Thursday. It charges Hernandez with the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June. He could face life in prison if convicted. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Aries

March 21 - April 20 A colleague may be a bit pushy today and your first instinct will be to push back. Don’t. It will be counter-productive, not least because they have more power than you. Stay calm and fit in with their needs.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Are you working too hard? According to the planets you are and the best thing you can do today is take an hour off from your schedule to review what you are trying to achieve.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 This should be a wonderful time for you and if it isn’t, it soon will be. A few days from now, your world will be turned on its head and you’ll be standing the right way up!

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Family issues will take up a lot of your time today and the sooner you deal with them, the sooner you will be free to do your own thing. Loved ones won’t be as difficult to talk to as you appear to believe.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 You need to get out more. Short trips will be especially beneficial today and over the weekend. You may encounter one or two less than friendly people but you will meet many more who delight you.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Mercury, your ruler, joins the Sun in your sign today, making this potentially one of the best long weekends of the year. Personally and professionally you’ll soon be moving ahead.

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 The thing you fear most is the thing you should be doing the most. That may not be what you want to hear but there it is. Once you take that first step, the rest will come easy.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You sometimes expect too much of yourself and then feel depressed when your efforts fall short. If so you feel that now, lower your expectations and learn to live with who you are.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 If you get the chance to join forces with like-minded people today, take it. Yes, you may have to give up some freedom but in return you’ll get the opportunity to change the world.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 With Mercury, planet of the mind, joining the Sun in one of the best areas of your chart, you have a clear idea what it is you want to accomplish — and the personal and professional tools to make it happen.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 The planets urge you to think the unthinkable today. But keep in mind that thinking and doing do not always go together at the same time. The more you think now, the more success you will enjoy later.

Pisces
