Fireworks debris a dog hazard: Owners GlobalFest. Fingers pointed at festival for Elliston Park mess JEREMY NOLAIS
“There’s a lot of stuff that wouldn’t digest. It’s not good for them — not at all. I’m surprised it hasn’t been all cleaned up.”

Laura-Lee Doucet enjoys taking Storm for romps in the off-leash area of Elliston Park but said it has been left in disarray by debris left over from the GlobalFest fireworks festival. JEREMY NOLAIS/METRO shell collected from the park read “Pirotecnia Zaragozana,” which is a leading Spanish manufacturer of fireworks, according to the company’s website. Another cardboard piece bears a sticker reading 10:53 AM “Midnight Snow,” the name
of a type of firework that appears to be sold by numerous companies throughout Europe and North America. But Ken Goosen, GlobalFest producer, said Sunday he hadn’t heard any complaints about the debris.
Still, he said he would head back to Elliston on Monday to survey the situation himself. “I’m not going to dispute that there may have been debris left, but that’s one of the risks, I suppose, of having an event at Elliston Park,”
Goosen said. “But every year we go back and try to do a better job if things have been left.... The smaller pieces, with a couple of rainfalls and over a season, will degrade, but we certainly go after the bigger stuff.”

Biggest spenders won most often in last Calgary vote
Hard to win when outspent: Candidate Ward 11 candidate Wayne Frisch places one of his 20-to-1 signs next to a campaign sign belonging to his opponent, James Maxim.
Money = power? Candidate launches 20to1.ca website to call attention to how much others are spending to win votes To combat what he describes as a growing influence of money over municipal politics, one candidate for city council is placing small signs next to his opponent’s signs, calling attention to their disparate levels of campaign spending. “It’s almost like we’re running Coca-Cola campaigns,” Ward 11 candidate Wayne
Frisch said of the state of local politics. “The branding is becoming more and more important.” Frisch has been erecting yellow signs that read “20:1” around his southwest Calgary ward, particularly near the campaign signs of opponent James Maxim. The ratio refers to what Frisch estimates is the difference in campaign spending between candidates who accept donations from industry and interest groups and those like him, who only take money from individual donors. Maxim said he was surprised when he first saw the yellow signs “nestled right up against” his own signs but then learned what they were
and the message behind them. He said he disagrees with Frisch’s call to ban corporate donations and limit campaign spending to $40,000, which he said has been problematic in places like Toronto, which caps spending for city councillor candidates in a similar range. “If think you can win with $35,000 worth of campaign expenditures against an incumbent, it’s not very realistic in today’s world,” Maxim said. He added that barring businesses from donating to campaigns would be unfair. “Why should they be taxed — as a business — by the city, and not have a right to contribute to a campaign?” he said. ROBSON FLETCHER/METRO
Do you need to spend big money to win in a municipal election? Not necessarily, but it certainly doesn’t hurt, according to a Metro analysis of campaign-spending disclosures from the 2010 vote. In nine of the 14 wards, the candidate who spent the most money ended up winning the election. In total, the 14 successful candidates for alderman spent $1.29 million on their campaigns, for an average of $92,073 each. That works out to an average of $8.74 per vote received. The biggest spender was Ald. John Mar, whose campaign-spending disclosures add up to $252,505, or $21.71 for each vote he won in Ward 8. The smallest spender was Ald. Shane Keating, whose $30,703 helped him earn 9,270 votes in Ward 12, which is $3.31 per vote. When it comes to the mayoral race, eight of the 15 candidates spent $40,000 or more on their campaigns. The average spent was $405,511. Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s disclosures totalled $403,829, or $2.88 per vote received. Second-place finisher Ric McIver spent the most of all candidates in 2010, with total expenses topping $1.08 million, or $9.65 per vote. Third-place finisher Barb Higgins spent $666,617 on her campaign, or $7.30 per vote.
Frisch finished fifth of five Ward 11 candidates in the 2010 election and said he spent less than $1,000 on that campaign. He figures he’ll spend more this time around, but still likely less than $10,000. • Maxim ﬁnished second in 2010 and spent $117,032, according to his campaignspending disclosure. • Ald. Brian Pincott, who ﬁrst won the Ward 11 seat in 2010, spent $44,083, according to his disclosure.

Cycling fans cheer Tour First Tour of Alberta. Local enthusiasts hope Albertans will become as fanatical about the sport as their European counterparts As competitors in the inaugural Tour of Alberta rolled across the finish line in Calgary Sunday, the cycling fans that have been there since they first put their foot on the pedal in Edmonton were right there cheering them on. National Cycling Center Calgary coach Stephen Burke has been following the tour with his family since Day 1. “It’s fantastic, for this kind of level of event to come to Canada — never mind Alberta — is very exceptional. Hopefully we have many years to look forward to this event.” Burke said.
With his wife and three kids in tow, each decked out in cycling gear with their bikes at their sides, Burke is like many who make up Alberta’s cycling fanbase, which is composed in the main of those who are themselves cycling enthusiasts. These are the same people who can be seen outside of the city, pedalling away down country roads — some for health, others for the thrill of the ride. When asked whether cycling fans in Canada could match up with the fanaticism of their European counterparts, Burke said he believes in his fellow cyclists and the growth of the sport in Alberta. “I think we’re showing in attendance and the interest in the race this year has far surpassed what is expected. We’re not as fanatical but I think the interest in cycling is growing and it’s the right time for this event.” Glenn Kelly/for Metro

Seniors should be able to purchase single-use transit tickets at a discounted rate, according to Ald. Peter Demong, who notes most other major cities in Canada make that available to their elder riders. Currently, Calgary Transit offers a discounted annual pass for seniors — just $95 a year, compared with $94 for a regu-
lar monthly pass — but there is no similar discount for single fares for seniors. In a notice of motion due up at Monday’s council meeting, Demong says, “This cost is prohibitive for those seniors who want or need to use transit service a limited number of times annually.” Robson Fletcher/metro

luck. Rubber ducks School set to punish Bad buck barrier, run amok pair over rape chant 6,500 Saint Mary’s. School says investigation may send yet more students to disciplinary hearing
University of B.C.
Similar act reported at 2nd school
Metro in Halifax
Halifax’s Saint Mary’s University is coming down on two of its students for their alleged role in the pro-rape chant that sent shock waves across the country last week — and they might not be the only ones. Severity
University spokesman Steve Proctor said the pair could face anything from fines to suspension or expulsion.
Jared Perry, who stepped down as president of the university’s student union, takes questions from the media on Thursday. Jeff Harper/METRO IN HALIFAX
University spokesman Steve Proctor said on Sunday that the pair will be facing a disciplinary hearing in the next 10 days after a student came forward with a complaint on Friday. He also said the investigation could lead to other students being punished. The incident, which was
captured on video and led to the resignation of the university’s student-union president, Jared Perry, shows a large group of students participating in a chant promoting non-consensual sex with minors. “Y is for your sister … U is for underage, N is for no consent,” the mob sings.
Officials at the University of British Columbia say they will investigate reports that a chant endorsing non-consensual sex was recited during frosh week. A statement on the university’s website says it’s alleged the chant was made on one or more buses taking students between events during frosh orientation activities run by the UBC Commerce Undergraduate Society. Any discipline will follow the school’s policy for non-academic misconduct. The Canadian Press
Organizers of the Great Manitoba Duck Race need help getting their ducks in a row. More than 13,000 little yellow rubber duckies were released onto the Assiniboine River Saturday as part of a fundraiser for the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC), but unfortunately a whole lot of those ducks didn’t want to get out of the water once the race was done. “We had professionalgrade oil booms that spanned the width of the river and we had kayakers in there as well, but the current was so strong it pushed some of the ducks over the barrier,” explained
Organizers estimated about 6,500 rubber ducks got loose during the race, with roughly 500 remaining at large Saturday.
Laura Curtis of the APC, estimating about 6,500 ducks got loose and continued their leisurely swim down the river. “It was a windy day … and we didn’t have any way of predicting this would happen.” The City of Winnipeg helped the APC collect about 6,000 of the ducks Saturday.

‘Common sense test’ points directly at Assad: White House Syria. White House chief of staff makes case for U.S. strikes in Syria; lawmakers to vote on military action this week U.S. President Barack Obama’s top aide on Sunday pressed the case for “targeted, limited consequential action” to degrade the capabilities of Syrian President Bashar Assad to carry out chemical weapons attacks as the White House mounted a major push to win support from a divided Congress and skeptical American public for a military strike. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough asserted that a “common sense test” dictates that the Syrian government is responsible for a chemical weapons attack that Obama says demands a U.S. response.
But he said the Obama administration lacks “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence” that lawmakers who will start voting on military action this week are seeking. “This is not a court of law. And intelligence does not work that way,” McDonough said, part of a five-network public relations blitz Sunday to build support for limited strikes against Assad. “The commonsense test says he is responsible for this. He should be held to account,” McDonough said of the Syrian leader who for two years has resisted calls to step down. The U.S., citing intelligence reports, says sarin gas was used in the Aug. 21 attack outside Damascus, and that 1,429 people died, including 426 children. Obama has scheduled six network interviews on Monday and then a nationally televised speech from the White House on Tuesday. the associated press

Determined Philippine newcomer asks the right questions to find her way “Don’t be afraid to ask questions, because people here want to help immigrants,” says newcomer Carrie Palaganas. Determined to succeed, she took that approach during her first weeks in Canada, arriving with her husband and teenage son in the midst of the Edmonton winter. “It was really difficult since we came from 28 degrees to –28 degrees, and we did not have enough warm clothes,” recalls Carrie, a former banker and registered nurse who left the Philippines to access better opportunities for her son.
afraid to ask questions to understand all the facts.” “In general, I would tell other immigrants to be strong and hang on, because this is a better place and people here will help you,” concludes Carrie. “Today, I can see the sun is shining.” THIS ADVERTORIAL IS PREPARED BY SCOTIABANK.
Carrie Palaganas is now enjoying sunny days in Canada, after getting answers to her newcomer questions from helpful advisors at Scotiabank.
“Fortunately I had some living angels here,” gushes Carrie, speaking of her immigration agent, her family and a high school friend who moved to Alberta a decade earlier. “With their help, we found winter clothes, got our paperwork organized and found an apartment in the city and on the school bus routes.” Carrie was also impressed by the team at the Edmonton Commercial Banking Centre and Main Branch, including Customer Service Officer Janelle Brideau, who alleviated her concerns about protecting the savings the family brought to Canada. “Banking is very complicated here, with so many different accounts, but they helped us choose the right package with the best benefits,” says Carrie, referring to the Scotiabank StartRight® Program.1 Through the StartRight Program, Carrie received a free day-to-day bank account for one year2, a wide range of credit card options3 and a number of other customized services and benefits. “I realized that a credit card is important because you need to build credit history if you want to buy a car or house someday.” While Carrie praises the kindness of others, she made a point of seeking advisors to answer her questions, even among fellow commuters who helped her navigate the transit system. “In the Philippines, everything was just around the corner,” she laughs. Carrie also showed perseverance to succeed. When she realized it would take time to recertify as a nurse, she applied her personality and bank work experience to earn a position at Scotiabank® as a customer representative. “Now I can make other newcomers comfortable,” says Carrie. “The other day a customer remarked, ‘Thank goodness there is a Filipino here,’ since she preferred to conduct her banking in our native dialect.” From her own experience, Carrie urges newcomers to, “Find a good bank that has nice people who want to know you and help you start a new life.

Beef industry bounces back after XL recall One year ago. 2,200 workers sent home after Canadian officials shut down Alberta beef-processing plant It was largely symbolic, but one year after the largest meat recall in Canadian history, the city of Brooks in southeastern Alberta held a celebration to mark the turning of a page. A huge beef barbecue on Saturday was the first major community gathering since Brooks was plunged into months of economic uncertainty when U.S. food inspectors found E. coli bacteria in a
XL Foods takeover
Brazil-based meat-packing giant JBS USA took over management of the Brooks plant from Nilsson Bros. in October and purchased XL Foods in January. • The plant now employs 2,400 workers and processes 3,800 cattle each day. Products are shipped to customers in Canada, the U.S., Egypt, Asia and Mexico.

beef from the plant. Dennis Laycraft from the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association estimates it cost the industry up to $27 million directly because producers had to move cattle further, couldn’t get them processed and pushed prices down. Laycraft said the lasting legacy for producers is a change in the beef-packing ownership structure. “The lingering impact is the fact we lost another bidder out of the system. JBS has been a customer of Canadian cattle for a number of years and now it’s JBS and Cargill bidding where in the past it was JBS, Cargill, Nilsson Bros. and a few others.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Drug combo seen to reduce MERS disease New research is adding weight to the idea that a combination of existing drugs may help some patients infected with the new MERS coronavirus. The findings could prove to be important because there is no vaccine to prevent the infection and no drugs specifically designed to mitigate the damage it does in severe cases.
A colourized transmission of the MERS coronavirus that emerged in 2012. THE CANADIAN PRESS
Infections with the new virus continue to pile up, particularly in Saudi Arabia. On Saturday the World Health Organization put the global count of MERS infections at 114 with 54 deaths. But since then Saudi authorities have announced eight additional cases, three of them fatal. That will push the global total to 122 cases and 57 deaths. THE CANADIAN PRESS

NSA won ruling on email searches: Report Northern India. Troops Surveillance. Permission to search, keep data longer expanded NSA’s authority, the Washington Post reports
Activists protest during a demonstration in Berlin on Saturday. German news weekly Der Spiegel reported Sunday that the U.S. National Security Agency can access users’ data on all major smartphones. the associated press
The Obama administration quietly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 for the National Security Agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its huge databases of intercepted phone calls and emails, according to a published report. The Washington Post reported Saturday that officials in 2011 got the court to lift the ban on those kinds of searches, which the court imposed in 2008 at the government’s request. The court also extended the length of time the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted communications from five to six years. The search authority has been used, the Post reported, noting that the permission to search and keep data longer expanded the NSA’s authority in significant ways without public debate or any specific

Bitcoin ATMs are coming to Canada Digital currency. Kiosks will make buying and selling Bitcoins easier The first time Ryan Johnson bought Bitcoins — an emerging digital currency that isn’t controlled by any authority such as a central bank — was with a pocket full of cash from a stranger he had met online. “It was almost like a sketchy drug deal,” recalls the 31-yearold Vancouver resident. Since that first transaction in January, Johnson has been exchanging his Canadian cash for digital currency at Bitcoiniacs, a physical store in Vancouver that acts like a Bitcoin broker. “It’s just much more comfortable to go sit down in an office at a brick-and-mortar building with a professional that knows a lot about Bitcoins, do a professional transaction and get a receipt for it,” says John-
“Our goal is to make Bitcoin truly grandmafriendly.” Jordan Kelley, CEO of RoboCoin, which makes the Bitcoin kiosks
son. “It’s reassuring.” Soon, Johnson and other Canadian Bitcoin enthusiasts will be able to exchange Canadian cash for the digital currency through a kiosk that’s similar to an ATM. Bitcoiniacs says it has ordered five Bitcoin kiosks from a Las Vegasbased company called RoboCoin and intends to roll them out across Canada in the coming months, with the first machine expected to land in Vancouver in early October. Four more kiosks will arrive in December and although their locations are not yet certain,
Bitcoiniacs says it’s eyeing major Canadian cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Ottawa. “Basically, it just makes it easier for people to buy and sell Bitcoins and hopefully will drive the adoption of Bitcoin, and make it more accessible for people,” says Mitchell Demeter, the 27-year-old owner of Bitcoiniacs. Bitcoins are mathematically generated through a series of commands executed by computers in a peer-topeer network. The process is called Bitcoin “mining” and is set up so the total number of Bitcoins that can ever be generated is limited to about 21 million. The Canadian Press

Sky-high strike comes to an end The world’s largest radio telescope will resume operations Monday after workers ended a 17-day strike. The observatory, pictured above, is known as the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array and is located on a remote plateau above Chile’s Atacama desert. It searches for clues about the dawn of the cosmos — from the coldest gases and dust where galaxies are formed to the energy produced by the Big Bang — and is jointly funded by the U.S., Canada, Japan and Europe.

investment to a deprived area in northwest Romania. Opponents say it will present an environmental risk. “Save Rosia Montana,” some 2,500 protesters against the mine shouted Sunday, referring to the town where the gold mine would be. The Associated press

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
It’s the time of harvest, the end of the crop year, when the growing is finished and the produce is tucked away. It’s the time of year when we head back to work ready to get cracking after a lazy summer. Or maybe it’s the holidays. Thanksgiving and Halloween are the perfect holidays, based around fun, food and family as opposed to commercialism of Christmas and the odd pastel sweetness of Easter. Maybe it’s because fall seems to be very much about settling into a routine — whether new or old. It’s never a bad thing. Fall is a time of change, a time of planning and setting goals. It’s a time to get work done and a time to reflect. It can still allow time for fun and spontaneity, yet still holds us accountable. Worth Mentioning

Hall ready to have a ball Did fate decree that Arsenio Hall would return to late night after two decades’ absence? If so, he’s answering that comeback call today with the premiere of The Arsenio Hall Show (syndicated; check local listings for time and channel). And he’s itching to get going. “You know how certain things make you nervous?” he asked recently. “I don’t like to fly, but once I’m on the plane and we’re over the Rockies and I’m watching a movie, I’m fine. “Right now I feel like I do when I’m in the airport.” It was in 1987 that a then-unknown Hall, briefly stepping in for Joan Rivers’ short-lived Fox talk show, took flight as the cool, hip alternative to NBC’s Tonight Show titan Johnny Carson. Then, in January 1989, he debuted with his own syndicated late-night show against Carson. He proved a formidable rival with his party atmosphere (the Dog Pound audience greeted him with “woofs” and other animal sounds as well as applause) and a wide range of guests, including presidential candidate Bill Clinton (sporting shades and wailing Heartbreak Hotel on his sax) and basketball great Magic Johnson shortly after announcing he was HIV posi-
What’s in a name?
As part of his strategy to reintroduce himself, Hall became a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice early in 2012 — and ended up not only gaining the exposure he sought, but also winning the competition. Even so, do enough viewers know who he is — or remember him — to get his new show off the ground? “When people ask that, I’m like, ‘Well, NO ONE knew me the FIRST time!’ I used to joke that people thought Arsenio Hall was a dorm at UCLA. So don’t I have a better shot THIS time?” he asked.
It’s hard to believe Arsenio Hall is 58.

lowed, he kept a low profile. A sitcom came and went. He hosted Star Search for a season. He co-starred on the CBS drama Martial Law for a couple of years. He did standup. He also devoted himself to his son, Arsenio Jr., now 13, whose mother is Hall’s ex,
former manager and downthe-street neighbour Cheryl Bonacci. “I love being a dad,” he said. “When kids got together at Chuck E. Cheese, there were a lot of mothers — and me.” But Hall yearned to return to late night. In June 2012 he announced it was happening. “People say, ‘How did you know when to do it?’ Several times before I had tried!” False starts included a meeting with studio bigwigs he skipped because his son was sick. Or the nail in a piece of sushi that broke his tooth the night before an allimportant guest-hosting gig. “Signs like that,” Hall said, “seemed to mean I wasn’t ready yet.” Now he’s sure he’s ready, whatever skeptics may say. “I hear all the long-shot talk: ‘This is an impossible thing to do after all this time. The field is so crowded.’ But I still have to pursue my dream!” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Who: Rizzle Kicks Where: iTunes Festival When: Friday, Sept. 6
••••• With cusses borrowed from Cockney rhyming like “We don’t give a Daffy Duck,” you can be sure you are not listening to the most bad-assed hip-hop out there when taking in Rizzle Kicks’ iTunes Festival performance. Nor does the Brighton U.K. duo have the illest lyrics: “Hashtag trends/we make people clap clap clap.” They started off weak, encouraging the audience to, “Jive jive jive,” but it was almost like they couldn’t quite believe their own commands. Things picked up once they got to the ska-influenced Wind Up, with its repeated build ups and break downs creating a level of excitement in the crowd that was palpable, even from this reviewer’s seat (which would be at my computer. In Toronto.) The best part was the finale when they busted out the big brass for Down with the Trumpets. Overall they showed themselves to be a couple of affable lads, even if the whole thing did feel a bit like a commercial for Hip-Hop Lite.

Liam Hemsworth. all photos getty images
They won’t be twerking down the aisle All the attention Miley Cyrus has gotten for her steamy MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke has apparently distracted onlookers from the fact that her engagement to Liam Hemsworth is pretty much over, according to Us Weekly. The Australian actor is,
“Just weeks away from calling it off permanently,” a source says. “He is over her and wants to make a clean break. No more back and forth.” Certainly the VMAs performance didn’t help matters, as Hemsworth reportedly found Cyrus’ dance moves “mortifying.”

I was going to write something about how sick I am of the Kardashians’ absurdly public exploits, but then I remembered that if those bozos stopped, I’d have a much harder time finding things to write about for this column. And since I’m writing this particular column on a Sunday, with last night’s cocktails still sloshing
around in my bloodstream, I was pleased that Kendall Jenner did not disappoint this weekend. Kendall was apparently taking video selfies of herself while driving on Friday. How do we know this? The little brainiac posted these videos of herself to the Internet. The vids show Kendall making duck faces that she definitely thinks are adorable and sexy eyes (that were definitely not focused anywhere near the
road) which is the place that eyes (sexy or otherwise) should be focused when one is operating a motor vehicle. Please take a nice long minute to consider the fact that a 16-year-old girl had a $110,000 car and you’re probably reading this with your face in some guy’s sweaty armpit on a bus on your way to a job that doesn’t involve being famous for a living. Editor’s note: apparently we do not keep up with the Kardashians quite as well as we think we do. In Friday’s Word, we mistakenly wrote that Lamar Odom is married to Kourtney. He is married to Khloe. Though maybe not for long.
No bike for Becks Victoria Beckham is the victim of bicycle theft. The designer and singer posted a photo to Twitter of the remaining wheel and lock for her bike in New York City. “So I won’t be riding home tonight then,” she wrote along with the photo. “Searching for the missing bike!” That’s harsh.

Here comes the airplane ... or not Tips. Kids need structure but they also need to feel like they have some control. Find a balance. SARA REMMER, RD Metro World News
When it comes to meal and snack times, it’s important that parents take responsibility for the what, when and where of feeding. However, it’s equally important that we let our toddlers and young children be responsible for the whether and how much of eating. This is the cornerstone of Ellyn Satter’s (author of The Division of Responsibility of Feeding, Registered Dietitian and Mental Health Specialist) philosophy when it comes to feeding toddlers. The what You get to decide what your toddler eats. Ideally, you should provide a variety of foods for nutritional balance with differ-
ent colours, flavours and textures. At family meals, your toddlers should be served the same foods that the rest of the family is eating (unless of course, they have a severe food allergy or intolerance). In other words, even if your toddlers are picky eaters, they should not receive a special meal. Also, when they are old enough, try to include them in meal preparation, which helps them become more open to trying new foods. The when There should be structured meal and snack times on most days so that your toddler knows when to expect another chance to eat. Because toddlers have small tummies, ideally they should be offered food every three hours or so. This likely translates into three meals with snacks in between and, depending on bed time, before bed. This timing structure will help your toddler eat until he or she is comfortably full and develops a healthy appetite. The where When you are at home, meals and snacks should be eaten at

a designated eating area, free from distractions. When children eat in front of a screen, they aren’t focusing on their
food or their inner hunger/fullness cues. Establish one or two places (preferably at a table) where everyone in the family
eats. This will encourage more family meals and also provide more structure for your toddler. The whether and how much It is completely up to your children whether they eat what you’ve served and how much. I know this is really hard for parents, especially after we’ve spent time making a healthy, tasty meal or snack. But we need to take a step back and ensure there’s no pressure, no forcing and no bribing. We should also allow them to eat at their own pace, without pressure to “eat faster” or “keep up” with the rest of the family unless, of course, they’re taking hours on end to finish a meal. The good thing is toddlers and young kids will not let themselves starve. They are very intuitive when it comes to eating. If they don’t eat much at one meal or snack, they’ll make up for it in future meals or snacks or even days afterward. We have to respect their hunger and fullness cues, because they do.

Don’t let dyslexia dictate their lives Demystifying the disorder. Playing to your child’s strengths and paying attention to the positives can make dyslexia easier, a new book advises.
Stars with dyslexia
Dyslexia myths, debunked
“Your child needs to be fixed.” • “I think one of the biggest myths is that we’re going to fix your child. The thing is, your kid’s not broken in the first place,” Foss says.
“It’s better not to tell your child they have dyslexia.”
Metro World News in NYC
If you’re reading this article during your daily commute on public transit, chances are there are at least five dyslexic people in your midst. The reading disorder affects 10 per cent of the population, with about 400,000 children diagnosed per year in the United States. Dealing with dyslexia himself, Ben Foss has detailed how to identify and deal with the disorder in his new book The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan: A Blueprint for Renewing Your Child’s Confidence and Love of Learning. We asked Foss how to identify and foster a love of learning in students who are struggling. Identifying dyslexia Knowing if a child has dys-

to have the child tested. Some dyslexic children have trouble memorizing a series of numbers, or confuse words that sound familiar. But dyslexic children have strengths, as well, Foss stresses. “If your child is dyslexic, you should find where their strength is and you play to it,” he says. For children struggling with their ability to read due to dyslexia, author Ben Foss suggests audio books or iPads that read aloud to you. This is an extremely productive way for your child to obtain information. istock

Foss says a perspective shift is also in order. “You want to make sure you don’t think about dyslexia as a disease. I am from New Hampshire. I’m not diagnosed as being from New Hampshire. I don’t suffer from being from New Hampshire. I just am from New Hampshire. What you suffer from is being in a school system that expects everyone to do everything the same way.”
love and giving them responsibility.” • Get your child formally identified. Foss explains that this will be a defence against schools trying to tell you “your kid’s just developing slowly” or “your kid’s just not college material.”
• Get the facts. “Learn what dyslexia is, learn the background, explain it to your child and then teach your child how to explain because they’re going to run into people all day at school who have questions for them,” says Foss.

Goodbye mom and dad, hello to my new pad! Home sweet dorm. Expert advice on how to make the most of your new cinderblock palace Julia furlan

So you’ve left the nest and your childhood bedroom is poised to become a glorified storage closet for your family’s things. Interior designer Tamara Dunner says the best way to make your new, tiny dorm room space feel like home is to decorate with care — with an eye toward colour, pattern and style.

you’re moving or relocating to bring some things from home. Bring your picture frames with photos of all your friends. They don’t have to be standard black picture frames; if you’re more traditional, you can do a whitewashed finish. What should students prioritize? It’s your first home away from home; it should be a secure place for you to come after school where you feel comfortable. It’s always hard that first year, so you want to emphasize that you want to personalize your own little cave, your own little place. How about the walls? You can get posters, but I know they (usually) won’t let you stick nails in the walls in the dorm. You can get light picture frames from Ikea or even take postcards and hang them on the
Any tips on style conflicts between roommates? • Chances are, you and your roommate the first year might not be best friends, so make your own separate area.

Bombers deal battered Buck Pierce to B.C. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have traded former starting quarterback Buck Pierce to the B.C. Lions. Pierce joined the Blue Bombers as a free agent in 2010 and made 31 starts over four seasons. The 31-year-old suffered an undisclosed injury in a 37-14 loss to Hamilton on Aug. 24.

All the 23-year-old Australian rider had to do was pedal his way into the peloton to maintain his 18-second lead over Brent Bookwalter of BMC Racing Team. Dennis stuck to the plan with some help from his Team Garmin-Sharp teammates on Sunday during the fifth and final 129-kilometre stage of the race, which started in Okotoks and finished with four laps of a circuit course through downtown Calgary. “We don’t like to try to get ahead of ourselves,” said Dennis, who finished with an aggregate time of 17 hours 48 minutes 40 seconds. “We always know that there is other tactics from other teams that could knock us off our little perch if we let them. I didn’t believe that it was always going to be given to us, especially on those circuits.

The Dallas Cowboys are serious about forcing turnovers. Eli Manning and the New York Giants couldn’t do quite enough to overcome them. Brandon Carr returned an interception 49 yards for a clinching touchdown, and the Dallas Cowboys beat Manning for the first time at their fancy $1.2 billion stadium with six takeaways in a 36-31 victory over the Giants on Sunday night. Tony Romo shook off a hit to the ribs that knocked him out for the final Dallas play of
the first half and threw a pair of touchdown passes to Jason Witten. Manning threw three touchdown passes to Victor Cruz and had New York in position for a comeback victory despite the flurry of mistakes. But with the Giants trailing 30-24, a pass from Manning went off the hand of running back De’Rel Scott into Carr’s arms. The cornerback beat Manning down the sideline for Dallas’s second defensive touchdown with 1:50 remaining.
Barry Church returned a fumble 27 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. The Cowboys went up 2710 in the third quarter after the fifth miscue — a punt that bounced and hit Trumaine McBride while he was trying to block for the return. When the mistakes stopped, the Giants made it a game again. New York went 80 yards, capped by Cruz’s second score on an 18-yard pass, and Cruz scored again from the 10 to pull the Giants within 30-24 in the fourth. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
