Three schools in northeast Edmonton are facing closure as the public school board looks to build a new school and consolidate students in the Greater Lawton area of the Beverly Heights neighbourhood. On Tuesday, EPSB managing director Lorne Parker announced the district plans to recommend closing Rundle School, R.J. Scott School and Lawton Junior High School at the next board meeting, following months of consultation. “We heard a very strong voice from the community sup-

porting the construction of a replacement school,” Parker said. In January, the province announced $20 million in new funding for a replacement school to be built in one of Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods. Three clusters of two elementary schools and one junior high school were identified in the Westmount, Highlands and Greater Lawton area. The district hosted a series of meetings in each neighbourhood, receiving mixed reaction from each. Parker noted there was not much support for the new school in the Greater Westmount community, while Highland parents advocated for a modernization rather than a replacement school. While the two communities showed apprehension to the consolidation, the Greater Lawton area has expressed a lot of

interest in the new school. “These decisions are never easy,” said Parker. “When you’re looking at the potential closure of schools, you have to be empathetic to the community desires.” The new school will be modelled after Major-General Griesbach, which was built in 2012 and will include 23 classrooms, a Career and Technology Services Lab and extra-large gym. EPSB trustees will vote on June 24 to consider closure of the schools. If approved, the district plans to keep the schools open until the new building is completed. Beverly parent Kelly Verhegge said she was thrilled about the recommendations. “I think it is a wonderful opportunity for middle- and lowerincome kids to have the same opportunities that other places are getting in the city,” she said.

System overview. City ponders adding new taxi plates

Meat for Dinner, a restaurant in Old Strathcona, was initially hampered by parking problems, and that delayed its opening. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO

Councillors want parking problems out of the way Proposed changes. Council looking at lowering requirements for parking RYAN TUMILTY

ryan.tumilty@metronews.ca

Parking laws might be less of a roadblock to new businesses, under changes city council is considering. Councillors passed a motion Tuesday, asking for alterations to Edmonton’s parking bylaw that would ease requirements for parking, for small restaurants in commercial areas like Whyte

Avenue, 124 Street and Stony Plain Road. Mayor Don Iveson said easing back on parking could create better, more vibrant neighbourhoods. “The city certainly does benefit from having a more active street life, more businesses and more activity at all hours of the day,” he said. Jeff McLaren, with the 124 Street business association, said parking restrictions have been a hindrance to businesses wanting to move into the area; they always have to go through a city process to request a variance. “It makes it a little precarious for business when that variance has to get passed

through the city,” he said. McLaren said association members are aware that relaxing parking restrictions can lead to problems in neighbourhoods nearby, but think there are better ways to handle that than preventing businesses from opening up. “Our position is that can be alleviated with enforcement and the city promoting alternative forms of transportation,” he said. Iveson said the city has to work with neighbourhoods on parking problems, but they can’t protect the onstreet parking at all costs. “If on-street parking disruption was a reason to stop doing things in the City of Edmonton, we would stop

doing everything tomorrow,” he said. Coun. Ben Henderson raised the idea of allowing for the city to take cash for new developments that have inadequate parking and potentially putting that money into city-owned lots. “I think for a lot of these small businesses that would be a very attractive solution for them.”

Rejecting a call for swifter action, city councillors have opted to study putting more taxi plates into circulation. The study, which is expected back early next year, will look at the entire system, including new plates. Balraj Manhas, president of the United Cabbies Association, said the city should just issue new plates and skip the study. “This issue didn’t come up yesterday it’s been there for a long time,” he said. Manhas encouraged council to issue hundreds of new plates. He said drivers are paying plate owners unreasonably high rents, because, with no new plates available, drivers have little choice but to pay $700 or $800 a month in rent. “They are working so many long hours, just to make the rent,” he said. In addition to looking at the number of plates, the city’s study will also look at working conditions. Mayor Don Iveson said ordinarily the city wouldn’t interfere with how an industry is managed, but in the case of taxi’s they have a big say in the market. “We don’t set the number of fast-food restaurants out there and we don’t set their prices,” he said. He said they need the study to ensure they’re making the right decision. “We’ve got to make good evidence-based decisions and the study is going to give us some evidence,” Iveson said.

Ginette Gauthier. Armed Calgary Street Church. Forces sergeant killed Ties to anti-gay preacher in motorcycle collision toxic for McIver: Analysts A member of the Canadian military is dead following a motorcycle collision near Medicine Lake on Monday. Based in Edmonton, Sgt. Ginette Gauthier of 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group Headquarters was staying at the Snaring Rover Campground in Jasper National Park as part of a unitled activity. There are few details about the crash, which occurred at approximately 8 p.m. Gauthier joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1982

Ric McIver’s political aspirations could be in jeopardy, warn analysts, as tensions persist over his participation in a weekend Calgary march organized by an anti-gay preacher. “He’s kind of trapped,” said Mount Royal University’s David Taras. “If he continues to discuss it and it gets worse, he sinks deeper.... If he says nothing, of course, it’s just deafening.” On Sunday, McIver posted a photo to Twitter commenting on the flags at the March for Jesus. He’s taken part in the

event the past four years. But the march’s organizer, notorious Calgary Street Church preacher Artur Pawlowski, has blamed 2013’s flooding partially on the “perversions of homosexuality.” Lori Williams, a fellow Mount Royal political scientist, said McIver likely entered the Tory race with “longerterm ambitions” — noting he would be a long shot to win — but said his ties to Street Church could cause permanent damage.

It’s early days for bike infrastructure development in the Garneau/Old Strathcona area, but some 73 people came out to the Butterdome to get the discussion rolling Tuesday night.

The workshops are part of the city’s What the B*ke campaign, which aims to give Edmontonians more opportunities to voice their concerns both in person and online. City council gave the green light to the 2014-2018 Bike Infrastructure Plan last week. Although cycle tracks are a trend seen in cities across the country, Michael Skene with the Boulevard Transportation Group says it’s too early to decide on the type of infrastructure best suited for the areas. “It really depends on dealing with culture and dealing with how to get people from A to B,” he said.

It was 1994 and the Edmonton International Fringe Festival was wrapping up with a volunteer barbecue when Fringe volunteer Dave Hughes was approached by a fellow volunteer. “Can I sit here?” asked Wendy Stewart.

A long history

The Edmonton International Fringe Festival is celebrating its 33rd year in 2014.

Less than two years later, Stewart and Hughes were married, something they credit to their meeting at the local festival. Hughes has spent roughly the last 30 years meeting new people while working the beer tent. “It’s more about being out there with the people and interacting with the rest of the volunteers,” he said.

“That’s the fun part.” His wife has also been volunteering since the couple met 20 years ago. The Fringe trend continues in the family, with the Hughes’ son, Jonathan, born while his parents were both volunteering at the theatre festival. The Hugheses and their two children all still sign up to be volunteers for the festival each year. This year, the fest — the largest Fringe event in North America — takes place from Aug. 14 to 24. “It’s a just whole (other) community that we sort of exist in,” said Hughes, one of around 1,200 volunteers.

Shhh... you’re invited to Dîner En Blanc A secret party is coming to Edmonton for the first time, and only those with a special invitation can get in. Called Dîner En Blanc, the event invites more than 1,000 people to a secret location that requires guests to wear only white. “There’s a lot about Dîner En Blanc that’s hard to explain,” said Christina Ignacio-Deines, co-host of the event. There are three possible ways to get invited to the event — two involve rounds of personal invitations from

someone involved with the event. The third option is for people to put their name on the waiting list. Held in 50 cities around the world prior to its Edmonton incarnation, Dîner En Blanc started after a group of friends in Paris wanted to meet — and they decided to dress all in white so they could find each other on the street, then build camaraderie through word of mouth. “One of the biggest things about Dîner En Blanc is you’re creating something

Odysseo is ‘a marvel,’ says artistic director World’s first ‘6-D’ show. Artistic director Normand Latourelle shipped in 10,000 tonnes of rocks, earth and sand STEPHANIE DUBOIS

stephanie.dubois@metronews.ca

How would the creator of Odysseo by Cavalia describe a suspended merry-go-round,

a flooded stage and acrobatics with horses? “The show is like dreaming for two hours,” said Normand Latourelle, artistic director. Inspired by Walt Disney and his fictional worlds as a kid, Latourelle wanted to take Odysseo to the next level, incorporating elements that have never been done before — like shipping in some 10,000 tonnes of rock, earth and sand for a travelling show.

The performance, to be mounted at a site at Yellowhead Trail and Fort Road, is billed as the first “6-D” show in the world. The entertaining act also uses horses brought in from around the world, including parts of Alberta, that work alongside acrobats and other performers. Odysseo is much different than Cavalia, said Latourelle, with bigger and better elements added to the on-stage performance.

“It’s the most entertaining show in the world. It’s the most feel-good show in the world and it’s a marvel in terms of the set,” Latourelle said. “I have re-created nature on stage and nature is not small,” he explained. The stage is three times the size of an ice rink to fit the 45 artists and the 64 horses of 11 different breeds seen throughout the show. Odysseo by Cavalia starts in Edmonton on July 9.

Police search for suspects in Father’s Day assault Edmonton police are searching for a group of suspects they claim assaulted a man with a weapon on Father’s Day. Shortly before midnight on June 15, three or four young men carrying a weapon allegedly attacked a 55-year-old man on Mill Woods Road, between Knottwood Road and 23 Avenue.

EPS is asking anyone with information to contact police at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone.

The victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries, where he remains.

The group was seen running northbound on Mill Woods Road towards 23 Avenue and are described as Aboriginal between 18 and 20 years old, police said. One of the suspects was wearing a black hoodie, while another wore a light-coloured jacket. At least one of the men had long hair, police said. Metro

Marine life. Obama plans to ban drilling, fishing in vast swath of the Pacific Moving to protect fragile marine life, U.S. President Barack Obama announced plans Tuesday to create the largest ocean preserve in the world by banning drilling, fishing and other activities in a massive stretch of the Pacific Ocean. Using presidential authority that doesn’t require new action from Congress, Obama proposed to expand the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, which President George W. Bush designated to protect unique species and rare geological formations. The waters are all considered U.S. territory because they surround an array of remote, mostly uninhabited islands that the U.S. controls between Hawaii and American Samoa. Carbon pollution is making the world’s oceans more acidic, pollution is threatening mar-

Crushed to death

Alleged victims want to drop complaints: Brazeau’s lawyer

Cluttered floor collapses, kills likely hoarder

The lawyer for suspended Sen. Patrick Brazeau says the alleged victims in an assault and threats case against his client want to withdraw their complaints. Defence lawyer Gerard Larocque told the court on Tuesday that one of the two people has actually written the Crown about dropping the complaint filed in April. Brazeau was charged with assault, possession of cocaine, uttering threats and breaching bail conditions following an altercation involving a man and a woman at a home in Gatineau. He has pleaded not guilty.

A U.S. woman described by police as an apparent hoarder was crushed to death when a floor piled with clutter collapsed into her basement, medical officials said Tuesday. Officials said 66-year-old Beverly Mitchell’s body was found Saturday as crews were using a backhoe to remove debris from her home. She may have been dead for more than a week, police said. Authorities didn’t even notice that the floor had collapsed Thursday because all they saw was ceilinghigh clutter along the walls and waist-high clutter in other areas, police said.

One five-year-old killed. Rare twin tornadoes send another 19 to hospital. A storm packing rare dual tornadoes tore through a tiny farming town in northeast Nebraska, killing a five-year-old child, leaving grain bins crumpled like discarded soda cans and flattening dozens of homes. Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger estimated that 50 to 75 per cent of Pilger, Neb., was heavily damaged or destroyed in the storm. The local school is likely beyond repair, he said. “It’s total devastation,” Unger said. The storm was part of a larger system that started to track across the U..S. midsection Monday afternoon. More stormy weather was forecast Tuesday in an area stretching from eastern Montana to New York. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, said powerful winds, large hail and a few tornadoes are pos-

sibly, particularly in Iowa, Wisconsin and northern Illinois. The Stanton County Sheriff’s Office said a five-yearold child was killed but did not identify the child further or provide details of the circumstances of the death. At least 19 people were taken to hospitals for treatment. The National Weather Service said the two twisters touched down within roughly 1-1/2 kilometre of each other. Crews planned to examine the area Tuesday to determine the intensity of the unusual twin twisters, said Barbara Mayes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Valley. “It’s less common for two tornadoes to track together for so long, especially with that same intensity,” she said. “By no means is it unprecedented. But we don’t see it often.” Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman declared a state of emergency, and the National Guard was preparing to assist local emergency responders and help with the cleanup. the associated press

Mystery man’s portrait under another Picasso The Blue Room. Hidden painting of a man found by infrared imagery beneath the surface of one of artist’s first masterpieces For Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, 1901 was a pivotal time to experiment and find his own unique style. At just 19 years of age, he was living in Paris, painting furiously and dirt poor, so it wasn’t unusual for him to take one canvas and reuse it to paint a fresh idea. Now scientists and art experts are revealing they’ve found a hidden painting beneath the surface of one of Pablo Picasso’s first masterpieces, The Blue Room. Using advances in infrared imagery, they have uncovered a hidden portrait of a bow-tied man with his face resting on his hand. Now the question that conservators at The Phillips Collection in Washington hope to answer is simply: Who is he? It’s a mystery that’s fueling new research about the 1901 painting created early in Picasso’s career while he was working in Paris at the start of his distinctive blue period of melancholy subjects. Curators and conservators revealed the discovery of the portrait for the first time to

Whitchurch-Stouffville. Lightning strike at a golf course hospitalizes four One man is in critical condition and three others are in stable condition in hospital after they were struck by lightning at a golf course north of Toronto. York Regional Police say the incident happened just before noon Tuesday at Bethesda Grange Golf Course in Whitchurch-Stouffville. Witnesses at the golf course say they heard a horn warning them to get off the course and shortly afterward heard a loud crack, believed to be the lightning. Some of those at the scene rushed to assist the injured golfers by giving them first aid and CPR. Police say a 51-year-old man from Thornhill, and two Toronto men — aged 53 and 56 — are in stable condition, while a 60-year-old-man from Richmond Hill is in critical condition.

“Who is it?’ We’re still working on answering that question.’’ Patricia Favero, the conservator at The Phillips Collection, who pieced together the best infrared image yet of the man’s face. Scholars have ruled out the possibility that it was a self-portrait.

media last week. Experts long suspected there might be something under the surface of The Blue Room, which has been part of The Phillips Collection since

1927. Brushstrokes on the piece clearly don’t match the composition that depicts a woman bathing in Picasso’s studio. A conservator noted the

odd brushstrokes in a 1954 letter, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that an X-ray of the painting first revealed a fuzzy image of something under the picture. It wasn’t clear, though, that it was a portrait. In 2008, improved infrared imagery revealed for the first time a man’s bearded face resting on his hand with three rings on his fingers. He’s dressed in a jacket and painted in a vertical composition. the associated press

Suspect in envoy’s death captured Benghazi attacks. Libyan militant accused in the 2012 killing of ambassador Chris Stevens and three others to be tried in the U.S. A Libyan militant suspected in the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack on Americans in Benghazi has been captured and will be tried in the U.S., the first apprehension of an alleged perpetrator in the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others. U.S. President Barack Obama said Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch of the terror group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, will “now face the full weight of the American justice system.” Positive, but didn’t tell

Man sentenced to 11 years for hiding HIV status A British Columbia man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for keeping his HIV status from his sex partners. New Westminster police say they received a tip in November 2009 that Bongani Nyoni was engaging in sexual activity with several women without disclosing to them that he was HIV-positive. In 2010 police issued a warrant for Nyoni for aggravated sexual assault. Two of the women tested positive for HIV. the canadian press

“The fact that he is now in U.S. custody is a testament to the painstaking efforts of our military, law enforcement, and intelligence personnel,” said Obama, whose administration has come under intense criti-

cism from Republicans for being unable to apprehend those responsible for the attack. Abu Khattala, who will be tried in U.S. court, was captured by American forces on Sunday and is being held in an undisclosed location outside of Libya, according to Pentagon press secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby. Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in more than 30 years. Last year, the U.S. filed charges against Abu Khattala and a number of others in a complaint. The complaint, unsealed Tuesday, charges Khattala with providing, attempting and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. Until now, no one had been arrested in the attack in which a group of militants set fire to the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. the associated press

U.S. Child porn distributor who ran network of sites sentenced to 30 years A Ukrainian man who authorities said could be the most significant distributor of child pornography ever prosecuted in the U.S. was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years in prison, for running a network of websites that catered to pedophiles around the world. The sentence was part of a plea deal reached by Maksym Shynkarenko in early January, about five years after his arrest in Thailand and 18 months after his extradition to the U.S. He will likely be deported when he is released from prison.

The indictment unsealed in 2012 claimed Shynkarenko traded in tens of thousands of hardcore pornographic images and videos that depicted children ranging from infants and toddlers to teenagers being graphically sexually assaulted or abused, in most cases by adults. The U.S. attorney said Tuesday the investigation into a website that Shynkarenko operated has led to the criminal convictions of more than 600 U.S. residents in 47 states. the associated press

Sodium reduction plan: Take with a grain of salt Worth its salt? Some in the U.S. are questioning the effectiveness of the FDA’s forthcoming voluntary guidelines to reducing salt in food Food companies and restaurants in America could soon face government pressure to make their foods less salty — a long-awaited federal effort in the U.S. to try to prevent thousands of deaths each year from heart disease and stroke. The Food and Drug Administration is preparing voluntary guidelines asking the food industry to lower sodium levels, FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg told The Associated Press. Hamburg said in a recent interview that the sodium is “of huge interest and concern” to the agency. “We believe we can make

Hold the salt

Most sodium not from table salt shaker

RICE, PASTA AND GRAIN DISHES: seven PER CENT

Americans eat about one and a half teaspoons of salt daily, about a third more than the government recommends, and enough to increase the risk of high blood pressure, strokes and other health problems. Most of that sodium isn’t from the salt shaker, but is hidden inside common processed foods and restaurant meals.

a big impact working with the industry to bring sodium levels down, because the current level of consumption really is higher than it should be for health,” Hamburg said. It’s still unclear when the FDA will release the guidelines, despite its 2013 goal to have them completed this year.

Hamburg said she hoped the agency would be able to publicly discuss the issue “relatively soon.” On Tuesday, FDA spokeswoman Erica Jefferson said there is no set timeline for their release. Health groups would prefer mandatory standards, but say voluntary guidelines are a good first step.

Still, Michael Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest says he is concerned companies may hesitate, worried that their competitors won’t lower sodium in their products. If that happens, “then FDA should start a process of mandatory limits,” Jacobson says.

Here are some of the saltiest foods, based on 2010 data from the Agriculture Department: CONDIMENTS, GRAVIES, SPREADS AND SALAD DRESSINGS: four PER CENT

Privacy. Britons being tracked by national spy agency on social media The U.K.’s electronic spy agency is legally allowed to track the online activities of millions of Britons who use U.S.-based platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google, Britain’s top counterterrorism official has said. In a witness statement made public Tuesday, Office for Security and Counterterrorism chief Charles Farr said data sent on those ser-

vices is classed as “external” rather than “internal” communications because the companies’ servers are based outside Britain. Amnesty International said that amounted to “industrial-scale intrusion,” but Farr said this did not amount to mass surveillance because the vast majority of messages intercepted in this way are not read.

Retailers to do the math for you New York’s attorney general said Tuesday Costco, CVS, FreshDirect, Walmart and Walgreen have agreed to list unit prices on their websites and mobile apps for shoppers across the U.S. A unit price tells consumers how much a product costs by each unit of weight. For example, a 16-ounce bottle of shampoo costing $5.99 US would have a unit price of 37 cents per ounce. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Security. Germany finds smartphones preloaded with espionage software A cheap brand of Chinesemade smartphones carried by major online retailers comes pre-installed with espionage software, a German security firm said Tuesday. G Data Software said it found malicious code hidden deep in the software of the Star N9500 when it ordered the handset from a website late last month. The find is the latest in a

series of incidents where smartphones have appeared preloaded with malicious software. G Data spokesman Thorsten Urbanski said his firm bought the phone after getting complaints about it from several customers. He said his team spent more than a week trying to trace the handset’s maker without success. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

the end of volume eight. Author J.K. Rowling tried her hand at literary fiction with The Casual Vacancy, but Potter fans held their breath and tapped their feet until she came up with The Cuckoo’s Calling, a detective thriller she tried to write under a pseudonym. Of course, she was almost instantly uncloaked. “Cuckoo” displays all the page-turning virtues of the Potter series, but it’s allegedly written for grownups. Speaking of plot, A Song of Ice and Fire, the series of books upon which Game of Thrones, the most popular HBO cable series ever, is based, so far features five exquisitely plotted volumes. It also features more sex, incest, gore, betrayal and terror than a Quentin Tarantino grindhouse tribute, so it’s definitely not for kids, although with today’s kids, you never know. So you can put this shameful fascination with Young Adult and genre fiction down to a worldwide failure to launch — or maybe a driving plot is the missing ingredient in more-heralded fare. I wish we could ask Charles Dickens, the master of great literature featuring great plots. But he died, alas, without finishing The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

But some of the older Sikh men we interviewed described how they had to cut their hair when they first came to England just to be accepted so they could get a job. At the other end, lots of the younger men have embraced the tenets of Sikhism, grown their hair, and left behind their previous false pleasures like drinking, smoking or getting themselves into trouble.

Some films hit all the right notes

SCENE

Rock ’n’ roll reels. Jersey Boys is just the latest film inspired by music’s best and brightest IN FOCUS

Richard Crouse scene@metronews.ca

Rock ’n’ roll and the movies have always had an uneasy relationship. For every film that hits all the right notes, like Quadrophenia or A Hard Day’s Night, there’s a host of tonedeaf films like Light of Day, featuring Michael J. Fox and Joan Jett as musical siblings, or Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a glam-rock-anddisco re-imagining of the Beatles classic. Rock ’n’ roll biographies are equally hit-and-miss. In The Buddy Holly Story, the toothy Gary Busey earned an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of the rock legend, but Roger Ebert sneered that Dennis Quaid played Jerry Lee Lewis in Great Balls of Fire “as a grinning simpleton with a crazy streak.” This weekend, Jersey Boys — directed by Clint Eastwood, and based on the Tony Awardwinning musical — tells the story of ’60s hitmakers The Four Seasons. Songs like Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You made them one of the biggest-selling rock acts of all time. Lesser known than the Four Seasons but louder, faster and dirtier were The Runaways, the subject of a rambunctious 2010 movie. Set back when you could still drink a bottle of stolen

Jersey Boys hits theatres June 20. CONTRIBUTED John Lloyd Young

Riding in cars with Jersey Boys John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony for his performance of Frankie Valli on Broadway, plays the singer in the bigscreen adaptation of Jersey Boys. Teamed with Tommy DeVito (Vincent Piazza) and Nick Massi (Michael Lomenda), Valli rose from the streets to the studio — and with the addition of songwriter and keyboardist

Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen), from clubs to concert halls as the Four Seasons, one of the top-selling acts in rock history. Young, Lomenda and Piazza bonded on the third day of the shoot. “We were shooting a scene where we were in the middle of the desert and our car breaks down,” Young says. “We end up having to hitch a ride with a farmer and the

back of the truck is filled with pigs. The three of us guys were actually in the back of this truck with a bunch of pigs, doing take after take, and every time the truck started it was like a lesson in pig excretory systems. “It was a sequence that’s been cut from the movie,” he says. “But it proved to be a real bonding experience for us.”

booze in the shade of the Hollywood sign without being arrested for trespassing, The Runaways focuses on two glue-sniffing, glam-rockobsessed tough girls named Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) who formed the underage all-girl band. The music of The Runaways was described as the “sound of hormones raging,” and this film captures that, transcending the formulaic aspects of the story by catching the gritty spirit of in-your-face teenage rebellion. I’m Not There is a hard movie to describe. It’s a metaphoric retelling of Bob Dylan’s life, but none of the characters in it are called Bob Dylan. Most of them don’t look like Dylan, and the one who most looks like Dylan is a woman. Unlike Walk the Line or Ray, which were both standard-issue Hollywood biopics, there is nothing linear here, but then there is nothing straightforward about the man, so there should be nothing straightforward about the movie. Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is the title of eccentric English singer Ian Dury’s biggest hit and the 2010 biopic about his eventful life. Starring Andy Serkis, the film is as high voltage as one of Dury’s legendary live performances. Finally, the film Control details the short life of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis (Sam Riley). After seeing the film at Cannes, Curtis’s bass player Peter Hook said he knew the movie “would be very well received because, even though it’s two hours long, only two people went to the toilet the whole time. In fact, one of them was (Joy Division founding member) Bernard (Sumner). The other one was a 70-year-old woman.”

Changing the narrative. Reading DDB CANADA about different ways of growing up is great idea to get families with gay or straight kids talking PUB

Writer David Levithan last year marked the 10th anniversary of his Boy Meets Boy, a romantic teen comedy where the homecoming queen was once a guy and the gaystraight alliance was aimed at helping the straight kids learn how to dance. And there was Paul, who meets Noah. Since then, there’s been a burst of books featuring lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning young people. Levithan, also publisher and editorial director at Scholastic, offered his insights into parenting and books with LGBTQ-related themes for young people in an interview with The Associated Press. How does a parent who isn’t involved in the LGBTQ community but who would like to foster an awareness and tolerance in children go about doing that through books, and at what age does that process begin? It’s never too early to foster kindness and equal treat-

“I’ve had kids who’ve left their copies around for parents to find, as a way of ‘coming out’ to them. And I’ve had parents who’ve left their copies around for kids to find, so the kids would know they were supported and loved.” Boy Meets Boy author David Levithan

ment, for whatever group. So much of the pain that LGBT kids go through is because they feel distanced from all of the narratives they’ve been given. They’ve been told that everyone grows up a certain way, and now their own way is diverging from that. The best thing parents can do, whether their kids end up queer or straight, is to acknowledge all of the different options that are out there, and let their kids know that they support them no matter which options end

up being theirs. Books are a wonderful signifier and a perfect conversation starter. With my novel Boy Meets Boy, I’ve seen it work both ways: I’ve had kids who’ve left their copies around for parents to find, as a way of “coming out” to them. And I’ve had parents who’ve left their copies around for kids to find, so the kids would know they were supported and loved. Your fellow writer John Green said a Hollywood

producer once told him: “The only thing audiences hate more than smart teenagers are gay teenagers.” Does that extend to books for kids and teens today? That producer would be laughed out of one of my editorial meetings, for certain. Readers embrace all kinds of characters, as long as they are written with emotional truth. Ten years ago, there may have been some hesitation on some people’s part. But it’s a different world now, and the bestseller list is

full of novels with welldeveloped gay characters — not just in gay-themed novels like Will Grayson, Will Grayson (co-written by Green and Levithan), but in works by bestselling authors like Cassandra Claire, Maggie Stiefvater and Ellen Hopkins, where the queer characters are part of the multifaceted worlds they are creating or reflecting. Are LGBTQ kids and teens fairly represented in books for those age groups? Are there enough stories where LGBTQ themes are taken on but also books that just happen to include such characters but are not about that experience? There is constantly a need for diversity within the representations. It’s just as limiting to

say there’s only one kind of gay story, just as it’s limiting to say there’s only one kind of straight one. As for how much being gay is central to the character’s identity or story, as in life that totally depends on who the character is and what he or she is going through. The important thing is for the characters to feel real, and to be given the humanity they are due. That granting of humanity is what separates a full portrait from a stereotype. I think it’s dangerous to talk about “Oh, that character just happens to be gay” as some kind of goal for us and our literature. The important thing is to show as much of the spectrum as possible, and to continue to investigate it. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Transformers a five-star car show Transformers: Age of Extinction hits theatres June 27, kicking off the second trilogy of the robots in disguise saga. While Michael Bay’s symphonies of special effects and ear-splitting explosions in the key of CGI Major may cause cinephiles to roll their eyes, the films are undeniable works of art if you look at them strictly as car shows.

Optimus Prime In Age of Extinction, the Papa Smurf of the Autobot flock will get a more streamlined look as a modified Western Star with plenty of aftermarket touches like a flaming decal, menacing exhaust stacks and more chrome than Justin Bieber’s Fisker Karma. It’s a more fit and trim look for the heart and soul of the franchise. Optimus was portrayed as a Kenworth K100 cab-over truck in the 1980s cartoon and a Peterbilt 379 in earlier films.

Lockdown

Bumblebee

If a Lambo went to high school, you bet your V12 she would be voted most likely to transform into a relentlessly ruthless badass robot, so it’s no real surprise that the endorphin rush-inducing Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a free agent who doesn’t bat for either side. Michael Bay has intimated that Lockdown, a galaxy cruising bounty hunter who can turn his face into a giant gun, will factor large in subsequent films.

The mellow yellow cutie patootie will get a couple of new looks in the new flick — a restomodded (restored, with modern guts) vintage ’67 Camaro SS and a modern Camaro concept car. Either he’ll switch partway through the movie, or perhaps this time around, Shia LeBeouf’s old bestie will have the ability to go either way. Bumblebee, originally a Volkswagen Beetle in the cartoon, was portrayed in the first liveaction transformers flick as a 1977 Camaro before getting with the times and upgrading into a 2006 Camaro concept car.

Stinger

Drift

This Decepticon lives large as a Pagani Huayra, a drool-inspiring, sevenfigure dream machine powered by a 6.0-litre Mercedes-AMG twinturbo V12 engine that can gallop to the beat of 700 ponies. In robot form, he’s seen standing toe-to-toe with Bumblebee in the trailer, so odds are high we’ll get to see the two bots battle it out and attempt to send the other to the scrapyard.

With a name like Drift, you’d imagine this Decepticon turned Autobot ought to perform the coolest car slides depicted on film since Fast & Furious made their Tokyo trip. Drift is a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse with a lightning in a bottle brisk 0-60 time of just 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 253 mph. This super-powered roadster definitely seems more in its element running full throttle in a Michael Bay film than doing a grocery run to the Whole Foods in Beverly Hills.

Robert Pattinson

Pattinson says he’s not headed to a galaxy far, far away any time soon Ryan Gosling all photos getty images

Ryan Gosling isn’t looking to adopt, as cute as that sounds Not so fast, Facebook. Nearly one million readers were taken in recently by a bogus story about Ryan Gosling trying to adopt a baby. An unverified account posted a photo of Gosling laughing with a baby along with a lengthy explanation purportedly written by the Drive star recounting how he’d tried to get custody of an infant because the mother had wanted him to after she died of cancer. “One year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won,”

the post stated. “We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love. Save thousands of children and meet me while doing it.” The post included a link to buy limited edition T-shirts and a chance to win a date with Gosling, all in exchange for donations to the Orphanage Home Foundation, which doesn’t actually exist. Before it was deleted, the post earned 936,000 likes and was shared more than 51,000 times.

Jason Segel’s junk made his mom cry Melinda Taub

Metro World News

Jason Segel’s nude scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall was big news even before the movie came out. Film buffs knew that by purchasing a ticket to the movie, they were also getting a ticket to Segel parading his junk around. However, one viewer was caught entirely by surprise: Segel’s mom. Jason Segel wrote Forgetting Sarah Marshall in addition to starring in it, so Mrs. Segel had no one to

blame but her own son. That did little to take the edge off the traumatic experience. Segel tells Vanity Fair that the famous nude scene made his mom cry. After she’d recovered from the initial shock, Mrs. Segel decided to make sure others did not go into the experience as unprepared as she had. She sent out a mass email to friends and family that read, “I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity; however, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.” Which is pretty generous, really. I am quite certain that if I made my mom watch a movie that featured my junk, she would be too upset to track whether it was essential to the plot or not.

Robert Pattinson wants to make it very, very clear that he will not be inheriting any iconic roles made famous by Harrison Ford anytime soon. Separate online rumours had the Twilight star tapped to play Indiana Jones in a series reboot and Han Solo in a stand-alone Star Wars spinoff, but Pattinson himself doesn’t know where these stories are

coming from, according to Us Weekly. “Why is that coming out? I honestly don’t understand what it’s all about. Man, I wish,” he says in response to the Indiana Jones idea. “It’s like all those other B.S. rumours.” As for visiting a galaxy far, far away? “I didn’t even know there was a Han Solo spinoff coming out,” he says. “Sounds like a cool spinoff. I’ll watch it!”

Becoming a mom isn’t high on Eva’s to-do list

Lots of actresses are happily becoming moms, but don’t expect Eva Longoria to join their ranks anytime soon. “It’s just not in my future. It is not on the horizon right now, so it’s not something I think about,” she tells People magazine, though she’s quick to point out she’s not anti-children. “With kids, I love their energy and spirit and innocence,” she says. Just, you know, from a comfortable distance.

dobbernationloves.com @dobbernation

While Pittsburgh is best known for its steel-town roots, today the blue-collar city taps into its innovative past by providing inspiration to art lovers. I start my art crawl a short hop, skip and jump from my plush bed at the Fairmont Pittsburgh. The property invites guests to take a walk back in time to explore over 26,000 artifacts recovered from the 2007 excavation of Three PNC Plaza. Objects on display in the hotel’s public spaces date from 1840 to 1872, offering visitors a glimpse into what life would have been like here in the mid-1800s. Marvel over antique glass bottles, gilded decorative accessories from France, botanical prints and tiles and cute Kestner dolls. The Carnegie Museum of Art was made possible by the generous support of Andrew Carnegie, the industrialist who invested his steel-town success in the arts. While most art museums founded at the turn of the last century focused on collections of well-known masters, Carnegie envisioned his museum collection would consist of the “Old Masters of tomorrow.” In 1896, he initiated a series of exhibitions of contemporary art and proposed that the museum’s paintings collection be formed through

purchases from this series. Carnegie, thereby, founded what is arguably the first museum of modern art in the United States, which at the time featured Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler, and Camille Pissarro. Today’s collection is distinguished in American art from the mid-19th century to the present, in French Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings, and in significant late 20th-century works.

Local celebrity Andy Warhol’s groundbreaking work has crowned Pittsburgh as the world headquarters for Pop Art. The city’s notto-be-missed Andy Warhol Museum is the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world, offering exhibitions year-round and displaying never-before-seen artworks from a collection that includes 900 paintings, 100 sculptures, nearly 2,000 works on paper, more than

What not to do: the resumé edition Polish off that paper. Make sure that your CV is up to par and won’t see the recycling bin Lauren Marinigh

Success in the specific

It’s a common mistake to use the same objective for every application, or to use one that is too broad.

TalentEgg.ca

Your resumé is quite possibly one of the most important documents saved on your computer. Why? A resumé is the key ingredient to helping land your dream job.

Here are some things to avoid when you’re putting together a resumé. Missing the specifics Don’t leave an employer guessing. Your resumé is supposed to indicate that you’re a good fit for a position, so it

must include any relevant information. Briefly identify the overall function of your role before focusing on specific tasks and accomplishments that connect your skills to the job opportunity at hand. Avoid broad statements that don’t communicate specific information. Don’t rely on a job title to catch an employer’s eye. While previous experience in a similar role is an obvious asset, employee responsibilities can differ substantially between different workplaces.

Don’t downplay design

If you are applying for positions in marketing or graphic design, getting creative with your resumé is a great way to show off your skills. • For a more traditional role or in a conservative industry, it’s best to stick to a crisp, professional layout. • You don’t need exceptional design skills to compose a beautiful resumé. A quick search online can get you started with some simple examples that will help you design your own from scratch.

No employer wants to read a novel about you, no matter how relevant your past experience may be. istock

If you’re looking for a first professional role or are switching industries, you’ll need to rely on a variety of work experiences to position yourself as a compelling new hire. Don’t assume that past work experience in a different field isn’t relevant to a position in your industry of choice. If you have limited experience, you need to use every piece to your advantage. Many skills from other jobs can be transferable. For example, customer service experience can be a great asset in many other career fields. As you build your resumé, you won’t need to use every piece of work experience you have when applying for a new job, but you’ll still want to present yourself as a wellrounded candidate. Going overboard

A resumé should never exceed two pages — and if it is kept to one page, that’s even better. Resumés are meant to showcase your experience and accomplishments, and although many applicants can talk for days about their background and job experience, it is important to keep a resumé short and to the point. Depending on the role you’re applying for, you may want to use a completely different format for your resumé, removing or including sections based on the information you want to present. Mismatching an objective Not all resumés include an objective. Make sure that you’re only using one if it’s a good fit for the opportunity that you’re pursuing. It’s a common mistake to use the same objective for

every application, or to use one that is too broad — for example: “I am seeking fulltime employment.” An objective should be directly related to the job you are applying for, and should change with every single one of your job applications. Note that including an objective is an often-debated topic. If you are having trouble writing one, it’s safer not to include one at all.

Slice the bread and cut cooking time Turkey Bacon Sandwich and Mini Hamburgers. No time to spend in the kitchen? Grab some meat and make it a sandwich night Dinner express

Emily Richards food@metronews.ca

Flash food From your fridge to your table in 30 minutes or less Do you only have time for a sandwich? You can use healthy protein options to fill the void while enjoying a quick dinner. Check out the variety of hummus available in stores and keep several flavours in the fridge to change things up. I like using hummus for sandwich spreads and burger toppers. From spicy to garlicky, there’s sure to be a flavour you enjoy. Here are a couple of sandwiches you can make for yourself or your family. Turkey Bacon Sandwich This is a new favourite! It is simple to put together, and even easier to eat. Cook the bacon while your bread is in the toaster, and slice up the tomato. With a splash of balsamic vinegar, the flavour sings out to be made on a regular lunchtime routine.

1. Place bacon on paper towel-lined plate and microwave

This recipe makes one serving but can be easily doubled. emily richards

on high for 20 seconds or until it is hot.

2.

Meanwhile, toast bread. Spread hummus on toast, and top with bacon and tomato. Drizzle with vinegar and sprinkle with pepper. Mini Hamburgers My kids couldn’t stop eating these, and neither could the adults! They’re perfect for small hands to enjoy for dinner or tuck into pita halves

with lettuce for dinner on the run. You can serve them open face with lettuce and tomatoes for a new twist to dinner.

1.

In large bowl, stir together egg and ketchup. Stir in onion, bread crumbs, oregano and pepper. Add chicken and beef and using hands mix together until well combined. Using scant 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the mixture, make small burger. Repeat with remaining mixture.

This recipe makes 15 mini burgers. emily richards

2. Place the mini hamburgers on a greased grill over medium-high heat and grill

for about 10 minutes, turning once or until no longer pink inside — or until inter-

nal temperature of 70 C (160 F) is reached. Place the mini burgers in buns to serve.

Ingredients Turkey Bacon Sandwich • 1 slice turkey bacon • 1 slice whole wheat bread • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chickpea hummus • 2 thick slices fresh tomato • Drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar • Pinch fresh ground pepper

Mini Hamburgers • 1 egg • 2 tbsp (30 ml) ketchup • 1 small onion, grated • 1/3 cup (75 ml) whole wheat fresh bread crumbs • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried oregano

• Pinch pepper • 8 oz (227 g) extra lean ground turkey or chicken • 8 oz (227 g) extra lean ground beef • 15 slider mini burger buns

recipe is perfect for summertime picnics and backyard

Ingredients • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced • 1/2 English cucumber, diced • 1/2 small red onion, diced • 1 tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil • 1 tbsp (15 ml) balsamic vinegar • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried oregano • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

• 4 Greek pitas, toasted (7-inch/18cm) • 200 g (7 oz) Saputo Mozzarellissima cheese, grated • 1 cup (250 ml) black Kalamata olives, pitted and puréed • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

get-togethers. Serve cold on hot nights, or warm to enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness of mozzarella.

1. In medium bowl, make the Greek salad mixture by combining tomato, cucumber, onion, olive oil, vinegar, oregano and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and gently stir. 2.

Toronto 3-1 Tuesday night for their 14th straight home win over the Blue Jays. That was the first time Tanaka could remember getting tagged so quickly and said it ���threw me off my rhythm a little bit.”

“Overall, I think my stuff wasn’t really there,” he said through a translator. Even so, Tanaka (11-1) struck out 10 in six innings and left with an AL-best 1.99 ERA. The right-hander has made 14 starts this season — he’s gone at least six innings in every outing and never permitted more than three earned runs. “What he’s done is remarkable,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “He wins.” Brett Gardner hit a two-run homer off the right-field foul pole and the Yankees sent the AL East leaders to their seventh loss in 10 games.

Tanaka made his big-league debut April 4 at Toronto and Melky Cabrera hit a leadoff home run on the third pitch. Reyes provided an even faster start with a drive into the lower deck in right, and slapped his hands as he rounded first. After Reyes, Tanaka never allowed a runner past second. Tanaka gave up five hits and walked two in moving ahead of Toronto’s Mark Buehrle for the most wins in the majors.

She made four appearances at the Canadian championships and won a silver medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games with third Susan O’Connor, second Carolyn McRorie, lead Cori Morris and alternate Kristie Moore. “To retire from the game I absolutely love is one of the toughest decisions of my life,” Bernard said in a statement. “But it’s time to be satisfied with what I have accomplished in the sport and walk away with some amazing memories and incredible relationships.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Jones gives warm welcome to Lavertu

Pierre Lavertu has an experienced, successful guide on the Calgary Stampeders’ offensive line. Brett Jones was fresh out of university at Calgary’s training camp a year ago. The centre from Weyburn, Sask., went on to become the first offensive lineman to be named the Canadian Football League’s most outstanding rookie. The Stampeders hope Lavertu is also a quick study. Calgary swung a draft-day deal with Ottawa to make the Laval athlete the first overall pick May 13.

The 24-year-old from Quebec City played centre for the Rouge et Or, but with Jones so successful at that position in 2013, Lavertu has worked most of the pre-season at guard. Jones may be two years younger than Lavertu, but he’s helping usher the older rookie into professional football. “He’s given me advice and helped me during meetings. He sits behind me,” Lavertu said Tuesday at McMahon Stadium. “Brett is an inspiration for me because he did everything

well. He has great technique, good footwork, he knows everything that’s happening on the field.” Jon Gott, who was dealt to the expansion Redblacks for the first pick in the draft, and the retired Dimitri Tsoumpas mentored Jones in his first year in the league, so Jones wants to pay it forward. “They just made sure I was welcomed into the group,” Jones said. “We’re known as a unit. I just want what’s best for the offensive line.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Mexican keeper’s star shines bright Brazil, Mexico held scoreless. Hosts’ scoring chances repeatedly stopped by Ochoa He was called a hero and a saviour by his Mexican teammates. His Brazilian opponents said he produced miracles. There is no doubt that Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was the one responsible for spoiling Brazil’s hopes of another World Cup victory at its home tournament. Ochoa made a series of outstanding saves to help his side hold Brazil to a thrilling 0-0 draw on Tuesday. The result left both teams with four points each after two games in Group A, but Brazil is ahead on goal difference going into their decisive final matches. Croatia and Cameroon meet on Wednesday for their second games after both opened with defeats. “We can’t avoid talking about their goalkeeper,” Brazil striker Fred said. “He came up with at least four miracles.” Ochoa’s first remarkable save prevented Neymar from scoring in the 26th minute. The Brazil striker’s powerful header looked set to fly just inside the post when the goalkeeper dived to his right to push the ball wide. Ochoa also made three other difficult saves to keep the hosts from breaking the

Algeria was on the verge of a major upset in their Group H opener Tuesday, taking the lead through a penalty in the 25th minute. Try as they might, Belgium’s attacking players just couldn’t break down Algeria’s defence. In the end, it was the Belgian bench that found the way, with substitutes scoring twice for a 2-1 comeback win. “We tired them down. We just tired them down,” Belgium coach Marc Wilmots said. Algeria dominated possession in the opening minutes, surging forward and moving the ball with flair. Belgium eventually settled down and regained control, ending the match with 65 per cent possession. the associated press

2014 Jeep Wrangler

• Type. Two-door, convertible SUV. Rear-wheel drive with full 4X4 capability.

• Engines (hp). 3.6-litre V6 (285)

• Transmissions. Sixspeed manual, 5-speed automatic

• Two-door Wrangler is the purest successor to the original 1941 Jeep. • Sport 4X4 is the least expensive Wrangler, appealing to both budgetstrapped adventurers, and serious off-roaders, the latter using it as a base to which they will add all manner of personalpreference upgrades and touches.

Points

Safety

• Powerful V6 engine for its size. • Only vehicle that encourages you, and makes it (relatively) easy for you, to take off the doors and windshield. • Heavy-duty part-time 4X4 means you engage it only when you need it • Acceptable road manners, considering its off-road prioritized components and design.

The Jeep Wrangler boasts that classic Jeep appearance.

• Inside is tight, and features lots of right angles.

Standard airbags; standard front/rear disc brakes with ABS and hydraulic-assist booster; standard traction control and stability control with Hill Start Assist; Electronic Roll Mitigation and Trailer Sway Control; tire pressure monitors; fuel tank and transfer case skid plates; fog lamps and halogen headlamps

Like its famous predecessors, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4X4 has more right angles than an aluminum garden shed, and tight accommodations for anything more than two adults and their duffle bags. For the record, it seats five, but I’m thinking the rear-seat people have to be well acquainted. But that’s what you get when you’re careful about not diluting the essence of that original Jeep, created in 1941 and made famous during the Second World War, and afterwards, as the world’s first offroad vehicle. The square and flat sheet metal ensures its appearance is true to those classic Jeeps, and the equipment and design is still prioritized for off-road use. At this juncture in its long lifespan, however, a lot of people are buying this Jeep for use in the urban jungle,

2 because of its cool factor and distinctive features. That’s how I chose to spend my time with this particular test vehicle — on missions to the inner city. With one notable caveat, the two-door Jeep Wrangler is a surprisingly capable tool for negotiating such terrain. It’s got the tall-in-the-saddle view as afforded by all SUVs, a super-tight turning radius, and its shortness is great for parking and jockeying for position on congested streets. It’s got standout looks, and its fun factor, which is high to

start with, can be upped by removing the soft top, and/or even the doors. Wrangler also features a very modern powertrain — the gutsy 3.6-litre V6 with 24 valves and variable valve technology, mated to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. Our “Sport” trim tester had the standard six-speed manual. At $23,195 (including destination charges) it’s the least expensive Jeep Wrangler on offer, and features a satisfying blend of “just the basics,” including

roll-up windows, “wash out” interior, and of course, the part-time 4X4 system, with a transfer case that enables you to select 2WD High, 4WD High, or 4WD Low (the latter for going up trees and things). The big caveat to using this interesting device on city streets is a choppy ride and lots of body action, courtesy of those heavy and “live” front and rear axles, the small wheelbase, and the high centre of gravity. But this edition of the Wrangler is quite modern.

Shift: Saving the earth with by powering Audi sports cars, and Volkswagens with electricity Honda’s small-vehicle “gateway� opens wider Not to be confused with the now-defunct Chevrolet HHR small delivery van/wagon, Honda’s upcoming all-new HR-V compact tall wagon will further grow the Japanese automaker’s selection of small, efficient vehicles. Built on Honda’s new Celaya, Mexico, flexible assembly line alongside the Fit small wagon, both vehicles demonstrate that “good things come in small packages,� said Honda Canada official Dave Gardner. The HR-V creates a new market segment that, together with the Fit, provides a “gateway� to the Honda brand for first-time new vehicle buyers, and long-time brand loyalists. Despite its compact size, Honda credits its “spacious interior� to a uniquely designed new centre fuel tank layout. Further details about the HR-V will be announced closer to its planned end-of-year launch date.

Test-bed Audi R8 e-tron “a go� for production Audi will build the once-cancelled R8 e-tron allelectric sports car, and says the new car will have an optimum400-kilometre range from its fully charged battery, more than twice the distance the original R8 e-tron could travel on a single charge. In fact, the automaker also confirmed it was the improved battery technology that convinced it to recommit to building the R8 e-tron. But there’s a hitch that might call into question for some consumers Audi’s commitment to electric technology: The car will only be manufactured “upon customer request,� reports car news website Motor Authority. Audi, however, says it will use the car as a test bed to develop electric drivetrains for its more affordable, higher-production models.

Shift points

• Volkswagen plans to put tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands, of electric vehicles on Chinese roads before the end of this decade. VW and its Chinese partners are “prepared to spend as much as $27 billion US in the next five yearsâ€? to achieve that goal. • Nissan wants you to know that it’s no Johnny-come-lately to the world of electric vehicles, noting recently that its 1947 Rama EV was a direct result of Japan’s then-recent wartime loss and the Allied Forces’ efforts to limit gasoline supplies to the country.

Cool it, we’re getting to the important part. Engines play big role in vehicle climate control jil mcintosh

drive@metronews.ca

Your car’s climate system seems simple enough: turn it up for more warmth, turn it down to stay cool. But as you might expect, what’s behind it is much more complicated. “The heating system uses a heat source that warms up a liquid, and there’s a fan that pours the heat into the cabin,” says Hayato Mori, senior manager of product planning and business development for Honda Canada. In most cars, that source is the engine, which gets so hot it has to be cooled down, usually to around 95 Celsius. Coolant, a mix of antifreeze and water, is pumped into the engine to absorb the heat. It then flows into the radiator, where it cools down before recirculating into the engine again. But on its travels, coolant also flows into the heater core, which looks like a miniature rad and is located deep in the dash. When you turn on the heater, a fan blows across the hot heater core, sending this warmed air into the cabin. A temperature blend door, controlled by a thermostat, opens or closes to direct more or less heat into the cabin as needed. If full heat isn’t required, another door opens to vent the excess outside. Air conditioning is even more complex. It’s a closed system filled with a gas, called Freon, that flows through and is alternately

How it works

• Most cars use engine heat to warm the cabin, but battery-powered cars and some hybrids use electric heaters. • Heater core repairs are expensive, because the dash must be taken apart. Flush the cooling system as recommended to prevent clogging. • The heater fan is properly called a blower, and looks like a hamster wheel.

subjected to high and low pressure. This changes it to a very cold liquid. It flows into the evaporator, a component that’s basically the cold equivalent of the heater core, where a fan blows over it to send cool air into the cabin. The Freon then becomes a gas again, and the process starts all over. In hot weather, you’ll often see water dripping under your car. It’s condensation from the cold air-conditioning components, and nothing to worry about. But get your vehicle checked if you see coloured liquid — usually green or yellow — which means you’re losing coolant. “There’s a lot of plumbing involved, and a tiny hole anywhere will bring down the whole system, so it’s important to get this checked according to the vehicle’s maintenance schedule,” Mori says. An air conditioning leak will simply leave you sweating in hot weather, but a coolant leak could lead to overheating and potential engine damage.

The future of driving safety is happening now Advanced features. Once reserved for luxury cars, hightech safety systems are becoming more mainstream than ever Justin Pritchard

drive@metronews.ca

Vehicular self-awareness was once the stuff of science fiction TV shows and movies — but today, more vehicles than ever are shipping with safety features powered by camera and radar technology that lets cars, crossovers and trucks continually see, analyze and monitor their surroundings for signs of hazards. As the technology required to drive these advanced safety systems becomes less expensive, more and more affordable cars than ever are offering them up to Canadian shoppers. Once reserved exclusively for high-dollar luxury flagships, you’ll find some of the auto industry’s latest outwardlooking safety technologies on your next affordable ride. Here’s a closer look at some of the most quickly spreading hazard-detection systems. Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM): Using radar or a camera integrated within the vehicle’s body, BSM can warn the driver of unseen vehicles in their blind spot. If a potentially unseen vehicle is detected, a visual warning on the rearview mirrors is activated as a notice to double-check before changing lanes. If drivers ignore the warning and signal a lane change, an audible chime or flashing light provides further identification of the hazard. In certain situations, this Quoted

system could prevent a serious accident. Rear Cross Path Detection: This hazard detection system blasts radar from the rear corners of the vehicle down the laneway or road drivers are reversing into, in search of approaching traffic that the driver may not see. Especially handy when reversing out past a building, snowbank or other obstacle, the system can alert drivers that another vehicle is approaching, and the direction it’s coming from, so they can take corrective action. Moving Object Detection (MOD): Advancing on the standard backup camera system found in many vehicles, MOD actively scans the camera image for signs of movement as drivers back up. Should a moving object cross the vehicle’s path in reverse, a warning can be sounded, possibly followed by automatic braking to prevent an impact. Lane Departure Warning: A camera, typically mounted to the inside of the windshield, powers this hazard-detection system which constantly analyzes the position of the vehicle relative to the lane markings on the road. Using information collected by this camera, the Lane Departure Warning system recognizes when the vehicle leaves its lane without turn signal activation, and sounds an alarm as a warning for drivers to get back into their lane. Some models can even automatically steer the vehicle back towards the centre of their lane. Pre-Collision System: Utilizing forward-facing radar or cameras in the front of the model in question, your next ride may actively “watch” the area ahead of it while you drive, seeking out signs of trouble. A Pre-Collision system constantly observes your vehicle’s speed, the distance to the next vehicle in traffic, and several other factors to calculate the likelihood of a collision. If the risk of a collision is high, the system can alert the driver with audible or visual warnings, or even pre-charge the braking system and tighten vehicle seatbelts ahead of an impact.
