Will he be the first speaker to do time?

1 Hub goes crazy for NICOLAUS CZARNECKI/METRO

Sal DiMasi yesterday became the state’s third consecutive House speaker to be guilty of a federal crime and confident prosecutors said they have “dealt a blow” to the corruption in the State House. “The culture of corruption on the Hill has been

dealt another blow,” said Carmen Ortiz, the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts. However the notion of a “culture of corruption” didn’t sit well with current politicians, who spoke out in the wake of the verdict. “This was definitely not business as usual — and it is

a slur on every hardworking public servant to suggest otherwise,” current speaker Robert DeLeo said in a statement following the verdict. The jury found DiMasi, 65, and his co-defendant, Richard McDonough, 66, a lobbyist, guilty of conspira-

cy, mail and wire fraud and extortion. A third co-defendant, Richard Vitale, was acquitted. DiMasi’s lawyer said they plan to seek an appeal. Sentencing is scheduled for August. The men face up to 20 years in jail on each count. MICHAEL NAUGHTON

Lord Stanley’s Cup NICOLAUS CZARNECKI/METRO

Bruins fans flood the streets to celebrate championship Majority of revelers remain peaceful, orderly It was a night 39 years in the making and the Hub certainly celebrated like it. Streets around the TD Garden were flooded with thousands of shouting and high-fiving Bruins fans shortly after each Bruins player hoisted the Stanley Cup above their head. Chants of “USA” and “We got the Cup” could be heard for blocks. Although most obeyed police and city directives to celebrate responsibly, things got rowdy as several groups of fans around North Station climbed on top of MBTA vestibules. Police in riot gear were called in to quell the crowd. As of midnight, police reported making minimal arrests and no injuries, but expected final numbers this morning. There were no reports of damage except for a few overturned news boxes and minor damage was visible on the T vestibules. Police in riot gear lined the streets around the Garden and in Kenmore Square, which were both blocked off to cars. City officials and police, previously criticized for deaths during championship celebrations restricted access to those areas, but

Finals facts The last time the Bruins played in a Stanley Cup finals was 1990. Before last night, the Bruins had not won the Stanley Cup in 39 years. The Bruins had never played a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals The state’s other major sports teams had collected six championships in the last decade while the Bruins fought to win one.

that didn’t stop fans from flocking to the Garden. For the Bruins and their loyal fans who watched the city’s other sports teams win multiple championships over the past decade, the celebration last night was finally their time. “I feel great,” said Zach Farrar, 18, of Beverly. “This is the city. Boston is the city of champions.” The car honking, cheering and hugging was a release as the win served as an affirmation that hockey is still a force in Boston. The celebration is expected to continue Friday with a parade through the city. MICHAEL NAUGHTON and STEVE ANNEAR

Bruins fans celebrated the team’s Stanley Cup victory well past midnight around the TD Garden.

“It is Timmy time. I’m getting rowdy and I’m making noise!

“This is the greatest thing to happen in a decade, maybe a lifetime.”

“I’m (expletive) elated. I don’t even know how to describe it.”

No more refunds for late trains Starting July 1, T riders will no longer receive refunds for service-related delays on the MBTA. The elimination of the program, which is the only of its kind in the country, will save the T $1 million annually, according to the T. MBTA GM Rich Davey said while some will be disappointed with the T axing the program, he assured the public the pennies saved would go to good use. “By reallocating these funds into the development of more customer service enhancements, we expect a greater number of T riders to benefit,” he said.

The T's "on-time service guarantee" gives customers their money back if service is delayed more than 30 minutes. After filling out an online form, the T sends the refund to the customer within two weeks. Due to the pinch in the T's fiscal 2012 budget, the service is being derailed. Davey said other initiatives would be rolled out when the refund program is cut back, including smart phone apps for the Commuter Rail and countdown clocks telling customers when the next train will arrive.

Anti-Scott Brown advertisement banned by MBTA Group’s ad critical of Brown’s stance on Clean Air Act T doesn’t run ads based on political candidates According to a grassroots group dedicated to clean air, the MBTA banned their ad that denounced U.S. Sen. Scott Brown for “gutting” the Clean Air Act. According to Molly Haigh of 350.org, a global movement trying to end the climate crisis, the MBTA told them the creative aspect didn’t have an appropriate political stance. T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said after reviewing the ad they found it violates the T’s guidelines. “Because the ad’s subject is a candidate for pub-

lic office, the ad will not be displayed on MBTA property,” said Pesaturo. The ad, paid for by 350.org, points a finger at Brown for receiving millions in campaign funds from “dirty energy companies.” 350.org said they were told the ad was "too controversial" “Too controversial? Too controversial is voting to gut the Clean Air Act," said Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org. "Maybe the T thinks spreading that news will scare people too

What’s in an ad? Guidelines state they establish “uniform, viewpoint-neutral standards.” Rules claim they don’t promote ads that “disparage an individual” or “that ridicules or mocks, is abusive or hostile of an individual.” MBTA must maximize revenue generated by ads that attract, maintain and increase ridership

much. It's sweet of them to be so protective of their riders." The MBTA has a provision in their guidelines that says ads containing political campaign speech can’t be displayed. Titan, the T's ad contractor, is allowed to accept ads that don’t violate the court-approved advertising guidelines. If Titan rejects an ad, the T reviews the ad and makes a final decision.

Police: Esplanade attack not linked 61-year-old woman assaulted, pushed into Charles River Incident is the latest in string of attacks there NICOLAUS CZARNECKI/METRO

A 61-year-old woman was attacked on the Esplanade early yesterday morning and said she was pushed into the Charles River. The unidentified woman told police she was hit from behind and then pushed into the water. She was able to get out and walked to the Prudential center at about 3 a.m. Security there alerted police. State police said the woman was unable to provide a description of the attacker and said there was no attempt at a sexual assault. The woman was taken to Tufts Medical Center for treatment. Authorities have issued alerts about women being

attacked on the Esplanade in recent years and are still searching for the man they believe is responsible. Earlier this year, authorities issued an alert to local residents and college students to use caution when walking along the Esplanade in light of sexual assaults reported there. A college student was assaulted there as she at on a park bench in April. “At this point, there is no evidence to suggest this morning’s assault is connected to a series of prior unsolved attacks on the Esplanade,” state police said. A dangerous place?

But with her entry in the 2012 Republican nominating battle and a strong debate performance, Bachmann has quickly moved out of Palin’s shadow and on to the national stage with newfound credibility.

Silicon Valley gets tech housing boost As companies go public, newly wealthy workers look to invest south of San Francisco Median price in area jumped 20 percent in the last year A surge in wealth from technology stock sales and initial public offerings is spilling into the Silicon Valley real estate market as newly rich workers bid up home values in suburban cities south of San Francisco. The median price of single-family houses sold in Palo Alto, home of Facebook Inc., climbed 20 per-

cent in May from a year earlier to $1.63 million, the biggest jump since 2008, according to preliminary figures from research company DataQuick. In Mountain View, the base of LinkedIn Corp., prices rose 3.1 percent to $957,500, the ninth year-over-year gain in 12 months. The advances are defying a U.S. housing slump

Almost 300 companies have filed for IPOs in 2011, the most for any year during the same period since 2000, and more than 10 percent of those are in California

that has sent national values to an eight-year low. Share sales such as the IPO of LinkedIn — which doubled on its first day of trading — and an expected offering from Facebook will fuel a boom in some Silicon Valley cities into 2013, said Kenneth Rosen, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley.

Housing in much of the rest of the nation is struggling as foreclosures and unemployment of more than 9 percent weigh on consumer sentiment. Home prices in 20 U.S. cities dropped 3.6 percent in March from a year earlier to the lowest since 2003, according to a property value index.

“It’s just the beginning of the story and I suspect we’ll see an explosion in the next couple years,” Rosen, chairman of the school’s Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics, said in a telephone interview. “You’ve got young people with real money, and it’s not surprising they want to have a house.” BLOOMBERG

SEC seeks additional broker oversight Securities brokers would be more closely scrutinized by auditors and be subject to stricter oversight of their handling of customers’ assets under a plan proposed by federal regulators yesterday. The proposal by the Securities and Exchange Commission is meant to improve oversight of broker-dealers in the wake of Bernard Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme. The SEC failed to catch Madoff’s scheme despite multiple tips and agency examinations of his operations. Investors are still seeking to recover billions of dollars. REUTERS

Flags bearing Pandora’s name hang outside the New York Stock Exchange yesterday as the company went public.

Pandora stock for song? Nope Pandora Media Inc. made a splashy public debut as investors shrugged off years of financial losses by the online radio company for the chance to get in on the red-hot market for startups. Shares of Pandora, the latest Web company to test the public markets, soared as much as 48 percent yesterday before handing back those gains to finish 9 percent higher.

“Pandora is incredibly enticing at a surface level because millions ... of people are using it. I think there is a love factor that is getting investors interested in it.” LAZARD CAPITAL MARKETS ANALYST BARTON CROCKETT

Although Pandora was the second biggest gainer on the New York Stock Exchange, the company could not avoid criticism by those who raised doubts about its business model and warned the market could be bound for another bubble. One major concern about Pandora: The bigger its audience gets, the more it must pay to record labels, hurting its chances of

turning a profit. CEO Joseph Kennedy said there was no timeline to turn a profit, though a larger audience should attract advertising dollars. The stock closed the day at $17.42, above its IPO price of $16 a share, bucking the broader market sell-off and implying a total value of $2.8 billion for the company. REUTERS

Academy Awards revise 10 Best Picture nod rule They won’t stretch to nominate 10 if there aren’t enough worthy films

Finally, the voice of reason: It was revealed this week that the Academy for Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is going to scale back the Best Picture nomination category. Now, between five and 10 films may be nominated. “A best picture nomination should be an indication of extraordinary merit,” said retiring Academy executive director Bruce Davis. “If there are only eight pictures that truly earn that honor in a given year, we shouldn’t feel an obligation to round out the number.” Hmm, I think we can pinpoint a few times this has happened already dur-

ing the two years the 10nominee rule was in effect. Did anyone really think “The Kids Are Alright” or “127 Hours” or “Toy Story 3” was true a Best Picture contender? What about 2009 films “The Blind Side” and “An Education?” All these films were good, but picturing any of them winning the Best Picture Oscar seemed improbable. Could this be an admission that, more often than not, the major studios can’t manage to put out 10 outstanding films a year? Most likely. HEIDI PATALANO

the phone, where “90 percent of the radiation” is emitted, study author Dr. Suvi Larjavaara from the University of Tampere in Finland told Reuters Health. These findings appeared as the World Health Organization announced that, upon review of available scientific evidence, cell phones should be classified as “possibly carcinogenic.” Although the results of the Finnish study may be reassuring, they are certainly not conclusive, Larjavaara cautioned. Cancer can take a long time to develop, and only 5 percent of the people included in the study had been using mobile phones for at least 10 years, the authors note in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Yesterday, in a call to Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show, the 25-year-old claimed she had been doubting this weekend’s nuptials because of Hefner’s “lifestyle,” and that the decision was a low-drama, mutual one. “We both agreed that it’s not in the cards for us. We had a long talk about it. I feel happy and at peace

that everything will be OK, and I respect him more than anything, and we’re still going to be really close,” she explained. You know what she doesn’t explain? Why a seemingly level-headed 25year-old gets engaged to Hugh Hefner. This was all so much easier when we assumed it was for money. Hef, what have you got to say about all of this? “Since we’re not getting married on Saturday, I’ve scheduled a movie: Runaway Bride,” he tweeted Tuesday.

Behind the scenes of a ‘Platinum Hit’ New show gives songwriters a stage Host and judge Jewel knows a thing or two about penning a chart-topper Jewel is looking for snipers. Marksmen of the musical variety, that is. In the new Bravo series “Platinum Hit,” the artist, along with former “American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi, is searching for the writer behind the next song you just can’t get out of your head. “We’re looking for hit men who can write for Carrie Underwood, then write for Ke$ha,” Jewel says of the genre-jumping competition, now in its fifth week. “Not every hit songwriter does that, but we’re trying to make [the contestants] as competitive as possible. If they’re going to feed their family on songwriting,

“If they’re going to feed their family on songwriting, they need to have a lot in their tool belt.” JEWEL ON THE SERIES’ CONTESTANTS

they need to have a lot in their tool belt.” Though a 12-time platinum seller herself with “Pieces of You,” Jewel admits she “didn’t really know ‘songwriter’ was a career option,” even as she went on to become one of the most recognizable singer-songwriters of the ’90s. “You can make millions off of one hit, just one

gig,” she explains, “and most people don’t know about that.” In the vein of “Project Runway” and “Top Chef,” “Platinum Hit” pulls back the curtain on an industry that demands artistry, delving into contestants’ backstories as their creativity is put to the test in weekly challenges. “It’s so educational to watch this show and see what it takes to be the best in the business,” Jewel says. “I’m so glad to be part of a show that puts a serious light on a craft that I care about.” AMBER RAY

Jewel, left, and Kara DioGuardi are looking for the next great songwriter on “Platinum Hit,” airing Mondays at 10 p.m. on Bravo.

No faking Throughout the course of taping “Platinum Hit,” Jewel was thoroughly impressed with the talent on display during each

challenge. “When you’re asked to come up with a product, something unique, in such a short amount of time, you have to have a lot of skills,” she says.

Any songwriting rules she stressed? “Be authentic. Be real. We can tell — the audience can tell — when you’re faking it. It just doesn’t move you emotionally,” she says.

“After 2 weeks my blood sugar went from 180 to 112 and stayed there!”

Heart Surgeon Hails Breakthrough “Antioxidant” Diabetic Drink As ‘A Miracle’! Naturally improves blood sugar, cholesterol, circulation, energy and more in as little as 2 weeks! What part of your diabetes would you like to see ‘go away?’ Are you plagued by weight gain and food cravings, high and low blood sugar levels, mood swings, low energy and constant fatigue, poor circulation, vision problems, frequent pain or aggravating bouts of brain fog or memory lapses? There is good news and it comes in the form of a ‘fizzy’, drink called OPC Factor™, which quickly revitalizes your entire body and mind! Better Blood Sugar The ‘miracle’ equals a powerful blend of all natural super antioxidants called oligomeric proanthocyanadins, or OPCs, including powerhouses like grape seed, green tea, pine bark, and red wine extracts, along with lemon bioflavonoids, resveratrol, and 23 naturally occurring vitamins and enzymes. Heart surgeon and Medical Director of the Heart, Diabetes, and Weight Loss Centers of New York, Dr. Fred Vagnini, MD, FACS confirms that “Antioxidant therapy may slow down the progress of pre-Diabetes.”

"OPC Factor™ has helped lower my glucose levels. I sleep better and have more energy and better circulation,” says Charles Leavitt of Louisiana. “Excess sugar in your blood causes oxidation and inflammation which is a contributing factor to slow sticky blood. Additionally, cellular damage leads to eye, kidney, nerve, heart, and blood vessel damage. OPC Factor™ greatly improves blood circulation which promotes faster blood flow; crucial for diabetics,” states Dr. Vagnini. No More Horse Pills to Swallow! “Pills and tablets have absorption rates as low as 2 to 20 percent,” says Dr. Vagnini. OPC Factor™ is the first 100% organic formula powered by a revolutionary, high-speed Isotonic ‘liquid’ delivery system. It mimics the body’s pH; having the same pH levels as blood and tears, the nutrients readily absorb at amazing rate of 97%! Results in Minutes! Actual blood scans taken twenty minutes apart show how OPC Factor™ virtually flushes away free radicals, excess cholesterol crystals and sugar molecules in the bloodstream.

National Health Institute Proves It! “I can feel it when I drink it. It gives a lot of energy.” says Ken Murdock. A National Institute of Health funded “Double Blind” clinical study published in July, 2008, supports customer claims about energy. For diabetics, energy equals better sleep, moods, and overall balance.

Unhealthy Blood Before

The result of these OPC’s penetrating the blood brain barrier and quenching the free radicals is quite astounding. It’s possible that after just one week of drinking OPC FactorTM you’ll feel more awake and mentally energized. You’ll experience sharper thinking and improved concentration. “My doctor said, "I don't know what you're doing, but keep doing it." says Teresa Wood, from WA.

Healthy Blood After

“I started taking OPC Factor and approximately a week after, I went back and had my blood checked. My blood sugar had dropped from about a 180 down to a 112. I had been having back problems and it seemed to resolve that. I like the taste. The taste is very pleasant. It has helped my overall health. The thing that I've noticed the most is the lack of back pain. I've just felt good this past year.” rejoices Doyle Allen, ID. Washes away blood sludge by eliminating toxins, free radicals, and even parasites!

Studies have found that free radicals produce oxidation that disrupts insulin sensitivity. OPC FactorTM works 20-50 times better than traditional antioxidants against oxidation. OPCs enhance insulin’s ability to lower blood sugar.

David Payne, a diabetic from Texas, echoes this, "Since taking OPC Factor, my blood sugar is easier to manage. It boosted my immune system and even helped my cholesterol." Goodbye Brain Fog! A surprising benefit of the OPC FactorTM formula is the mental clarity and energy many users experience after just a few days. Why?

“The brain is over 90% fat making it a perfect place for nasty free radicals to hide. They hitch a ride in your blood stream and are transported into your brain where they create havoc. The free radicals affect your brain health by oxidizing the fatty tissue.” remarks Dr. Vagnini.

3

‘Super 8’ One of the most highly anticipated films of the summer, J.J. Abrams’ latest monster movie is finally in theaters. It’s like “E.T.” meets “Goonies” meets “Cloverfield,” which can only be a good thing.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ This Disney franchise’s fourth installment is such a big deal that no other studios dared to put out a major release on the same weekend it came out. This time around, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) pairs up with Angelica (Penelope Cruz) for another swashbuckling adventure.

Jason Gann stars in “Wilfred.”

‘Wilfred’ Premiering June 23 at 10 p.m. on FX The plot of imported Australian comedy “Wilfred” is a bit difficult to explain. So we’ll allow star Elijah Wood to do the heavy lifting: “It’s about a man who befriends a dog who he sees as a man in a dog suit, right, and the sort of comedy that ensues in the world around them. And … the dog smokes pot. Yeah.” If comparing it to previous works helps any, the James Stewart film “Harvey” comes to mind. “There’s that aspect of that imaginary character relationship that I find really interesting,” Wood says.

“Since the reset button on humanity has been pushed, the survivors will become the authors of the next gospels or constitution or whatever framework society is going to have to live under.”

hen is the last time you walked into a restaurant and were really impressed? Not by the food or drink, I mean, but, like, literally struck by how it looks. Been a while, right? If so, then a trip may be in order to Red Lantern, the new Asian-themed restaurant and lounge from the folks behind the stylistically similar Shrine at Foxwoods. With its distressed, exposed white brick, dozens of Buddha statues, paper bird cage lanterns and towering ceilings, it looks like an artfully crumbling temple that doubles as a sleek nightclub come sundown. You’d never

know it was once a Bertucci’s chain franchise. The sleek first impression, and what’s likely to be a flashy Back Bay-South End crowd, may give off the vibe that this is a style over substance operation, but so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised with both the confluence of Asian-influenced cuisine and more serious than you might expect cocktails. Bar manager Joe O’Connor, also of Shrine and formerly doing great stuff at Gaslight, and his staff, including another Gaslight vet Lena Krivosheyeva, are seeing to the latter, with scorpion bowls, tiki-style cocktails and recipes that lean on the Asian theme using sake bases, plum, lemongrass, ginger and lychee throughout. Future iterations will include drinks served in hollowed out watermelons, honeydews, pineapples and the like.

I’m Robert M Josephs, a consumer bankruptcy attorney with offices in Jamaica Plain and Waltham. I want to share some thoughts about debt collectors with you. As a consumer, the important thing for you to learn is that they don’t have much power. As said by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Since summer is coming, I’ll lighten up a little and share some dumb things that collection agents have said to me in my years of being a consumer bankruptcy attorney. Once, years ago, I informed a Florida collection agency owner that his collection agency lacked the license required to collect debts in Massachusetts. He responded, “How can I know the laws in all 52 states?” 52? I think he missed a day in first grade. Recently, I flatly told an Illinois collector that he lacked a license to perform Massachusetts collections. He said that I was wrong, that his agency had a license. I asked for his agency’s Massachusetts debt collection license number, and he replied that he didn’t say that they had a license for Massachusetts! These guys will argue about anything - even when they are violating the law. Ask yourself whether you need to endure these people in your life. Or, would you rather take an affirmative step to be rid of them? It can be done, by considering the option of filing for bankruptcy. Call me.

Valdettaro & Josephs is a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. (617) 522-3200.

Call their music what you want, but Foster the People’s single may be the song of summer Who cares if their catchy ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ actually came out more than a year ago?

F

oster the People are such a grassroots success that papers have been calling their song, “Pumped Up Kicks” the song of the summer since February of 2010. Originally released on the band’s own website, the song’s gradually increasing popularity led to a major label deal with Columbia Records and their recently released full length, “Torches.” The album hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts in the Rock Albums and Alternative Albums categories. Of the band’s steady success singer Mark Foster jokes, “it’s going to be the song of every summer.”

I’d like to ask you about your influences, but I feel like I have to be cautious, because the lyrics of your song, “Call It What You Want” seem like such a critique of criticism, with the line about “You say, ‘what’s your style and who do you listen to?’ Who cares?”

You’re really perceptive if you got what that song was about. ... I played a song for a girl one time, and she was like, “You remind me of Prince meets John Mayer meets Incubus.” And I was just like, “Are you kidding me? It’s like none of those things!” It happens all the time, people compare stuff. We’ve got a lot of comparisons to MGMT, and Peter Bjorn and John, and Phoenix and whatever. And that doesn’t really frustrate me. I think it just kind of comes with the territory, especially when you’re a new band. At the risk of you writing a song criticizing my observations, I got from “Torches” a 1980s sensibility, but it feels more like ’80s pop than the

new wave ’80s that other indie bands have embraced.

I grew up listening to all sorts of music, I’ve been working on the sound for Foster the People for seven years. ... And really in the last year and a half to two years is when it started to click. ... I never really set out specifically to try to capture one particular moment in history musically. ... It’s kind of everything all at once. A few of the “Torches” songs are surprisingly vulnerable.

I write the music first, usually, and a lot of times the music will make me feel something, and I really try

to channel what I’m feeling and write a song that will lyrically tell a story of what the music is making me do, but on the other hand, sometimes I undercut it and do something ironic, like “Pumped Up Kicks” for example. But I think vulnerability is definitely the hardest thing about being a musician. But the deeper you go and the harder you dig, the better song you create, because other people can vicariously live through your emotions, and a lot of times, people need an artist to identify the emotions in them that they were feeling but they didn’t know what to call it, so I think that is kind of our job.

This bill sounds more like a meal than a lineup of bands (doesn’t the name Givers sound like a snack

in the tradition of sliders or munchers?) and Pepper Rabbit, well, that one’s too easy. Both bands are indeed quite tasty, in their trancey approach to acoustic music.

Obama is no superman RE: “CAPITALISM’S WORST WARRIOR”: Obama did not

“save” any industries and TARP (the bank bailout) was a Bush policy! The bank and auto bailouts simply reward and encourage risky behavior. The banks and auto industries do not represent capitalism; they represent corporatism (AKA fascism). We, the average citizens, pay for bailouts with taxes and inflation. Universal health care will be an economic disaster like social security and Medicare and Medicaid. You may as

well get treated at your local post office. KELLY DONNOE, VIA E-MAIL

Fixing a mess takes time RE: “OBAMA: SECRET CAPITALIST”: Have you ever

seen boys playing with Legos? They build something up then they destroy it. How long do you think it takes to pick up the scattered pieces and rebuild? Even longer than it would to build it in the first place. So four years of rebuilding compared to the eight years of wreaking havoc is still just the beginning. ALICE THAI, BOSTON

Out of touch with reality

Horoscope

creating jobs fast enough, but it is creating them.

Gemini May 21-June 20. Whether it comes from a good friend or a stranger, any kind of proposal brought to you should be examined for strings attached. Thoroughly check things out first. Cancer June 21-July 22. Resources shared by you and your mate might be in hot demand from each party. Instead of letting a blowup occur, give in to certain demands. Leo July 23-Aug. 22. When having work or a service done for you, be on the spot as much as possible in order to prevent a bad job. Unless you’re there to check on what’s being done, things could go awry. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22.Guard against not only your own extravagance urges, but against friends who prod you into spending far more than you should. Both situations bear watching very closely. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. Instead of attempting to do far too many things at once, concentrate on only one job at a time, regardless of how much needs to be accomplished. You’ll botch up the works if you don’t. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. Don’t even try to talk another into doing something for you that she or he knows you can easily do for yourself.

Republican extremists are as out of touch with reality as when they referred derisively to the “realitybased” community. (They prefer faith-based economic policy.) The economy is not doing as well as it should — Republicans, along with conservative Democrats, blocked much of what would have helped. Yet the Far Wrong has forgotten that in the waning months of the Bush administration “good” economic news was when fewer jobs were lost than expected. Now the economy isn’t

They are the puppetmasters The banksters are grabbing land and water in Africa for profits at the expense of the survival of the people there. Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan were named specifically in an article on the reports of these inhumane actions. When will the people wise up and realize these evil people have an evil agenda, they aren’t just accidentally doing this stuff ? The Oilygarch Bankster agenda is to reduce the world population to 500 million they select and to have all the world’s resources to themselves. CHARLES

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. If your fear of losing is taking precedence over your will to win, you’ve already been defeated before you’ve even begun. Believe to achieve. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. As resistance to your aims stiffens, so will your possibilities for accomplishment. In order to get things done, you must be tenacious. Fight for your right to get what you want. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. Think before you act, instead of creating unnecessary problems through uninformed, knee-jerk reactions. Be your own sagacious adviser, not your worst enemy. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. Be realistic in assessing your finances and then budget your spending accordingly. Don’t pauper yourself through extravagance and, or, borrowing more from others. Aries March 21-April 19. Unless you focus on a specific goal or objective, something you’ve wanted for a long time that you believe could help you will slip through your fingers. Taurus April 20-May 20. If you want to maintain a healthy perspective on issues, temper your grandiose conceptions with a large dose of realism. A balanced outlook will bring you the best results.

A wedding is probably the only day in your life where it’s perfectly OK for you to expect to be the center of attention. Milk it for all it’s worth — without going all bridezilla — by opting for metallic fabrics or crystal embellishments that make it clear who the woman of the hour is.

Flip tradition altogether by turning your wedding into a white party and then showing up in lipstick red.

You’ve chosen a sweet, classic dress for your city hall ceremony that you can actually wear again and again — yay! — but you don’t want to get lost in the mix of relatives and friends showing up to the big, fancy after-party. Carry a lush, bold bouquet to make sure there’s no question who the wedding photographer should be looking for in the crowd.

+ Pro bridal tips

Planning for the worst Been dreaming about an outdoor wedding? You have to accept the fact that it might rain on your big day. “I really try to get my brides to imagine her worst-case scenario, and get herself OK with the idea that if something changes, and say, it’s not gorgeous outside, it’s still going to be magical and gorgeous inside,” explains Kalman. “It’s really important to keep a positive attitude on your wedding day because negativity rolls down from the bride.”

Tips for being an organized bride As the founder and CEO of Swank Productions (www.swankproductions.com)

Maya Kalman makes brides’ dreams come true on a daily basis. She shares how she’s made her company one of New York’s top event planning and design firms — and can save you some serious cash and your sanity.

Keep in touch with the caterers You should touch base with your caterers six to eight weeks before, a month before and the week of your wedding, advises Kalman.

“The Monday before the big day, you want to contact every vendor and make sure they have all the information they need, you have all the information you need or if there are any lastminute changes.”

Put your money on the photos “Photography is probably the most important expense because at the end of the day, the only thing that lasts besides your marriage are the photos,” says Kalman. She also advises splurging on a hair and makeup artist. TINA CHADHA

More tips Know your timeline “You need to ask the venue, ‘How many hours does my team have to set up and break down?’” says Kalman. “They might only give you an hour, in which case those lanterns hanging from the ceiling of the tent might not be physically able to happen.” Have an emergency kit In it, Kalman says to pack: double-stick tape, mints, lots of safety pins in all sizes, a sewing kit, Band-Aids and spray deodorant.

Make a DIY project cutoff “My rule is: The Tuesday or Wednesday before the wedding weekend, if your DIY project is not completed, just let it go,” says Kalman. “Your guests are not going to be disappointed if you don’t have a rhinestone glued on to the ‘I’ in your name. It’s better to be calm, stress-free and well-rested.” FOR TIPS ON HOW TO PERSONALIZE YOUR WEDDING GO TO WWW.METRO.US/STYLE

Expert advice: Planning an outdoor affair? Kalman recommends keeping a tent on hold. “They require a deposit and then a couple of days before, based on the weather reports, you can determine whether you’re going to actually need it or not,” she says. METRO/TC

Conn Smythe Trophy goes to Thomas GETTY IMAGES

It was the biggest no-brainer of the postseason: Tim Thomas earned the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP. Really, where else could it have gone? The Bruins’ indomitable goalie made another 37 saves last night, posting

his second shutout of the Stanley Cup finals. Thomas has been from the bottom to the top in his hockey career. Finally, he’s at the summit he deserves. “I think I went even further than I thought,” he said immediately after the

game. “I never envisioned three Game 7s in one playoff series and still being able to come out on top.” Neither could new rival Roberto Luongo, who criticized Thomas’ aggressive style of play during the finals, and expressed regret the B’s goalie hadn’t been

Black and Gold finally rejoins the city’s ranks of champions The Cup is coming to the Hub for the first time in 39 years Thomas a hero again GETTY IMAGES

The Boston Bruins are, at long last, Stanley Cup champions. The B’s left little doubt last night in Vancouver, shelling Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo one last time en route to a 4-0 Game 7 victory. The Red Sox have won World Series. The Patriots brought home Super Bowls. The Celtics won an NBA championship. Now, for the first time since 1972, it’s the Bruins’ turn. Boston overcame everything the rest of the league could throw at it this postseason. They won Game 7s against the Canadiens, Lightning and Canucks, overcame the awful memories of last year’s collapse and stuck together through Nathan Horton’s dreadful finals injury. In the end, nothing — and nobody — could stop them. And nothing could beat Tim Thomas, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner who posted yet another postseason shutout last night. The presumptive Vezina Trophy honoree, who set the record for saves in a single postseason and in a Stanley Cup finals, seemed almost in disbelief after the final whistle. “It feels great,” Thomas said. “It still hasn’t kicked in, if I’m completely

Bite this, Burrows It’s a vampire movie come to life on the ice. Patrice Bergeron, who started the Stanley Cup finals as the victim of a cowardly bite by Vancouver’s Alex Burrows, ended it as the hero of Game 7.

py short-hander five minutes later. Marchand put the icing on the cake — and kicked off the Hub’s celebration — with three minutes left in regulation. When the final whistle finally sounded, the B’s piled on Thomas. Champions. Finally. METRO

Outside of Tim Thomas’ glorious performance and Roberto Luongo’s implosion, the key to the B’s Cup was the performance of Vancouver’s stars. The Sedin twins and Ryan Kesler had just six points between them in the seven-game series. And three of those came in garbage time of the Game 6 rout. METRO

IT’S WIDE OPEN SEASON Crushers favored at lengthy Congressional CC, which has gone fairly soft in the rough Without Tiger in the tournament, we’re likely to see another fresh face in winner’s circle

Bubba Watson wears overalls in a new music video. He could be wearing a major championship smile on Sunday.

ALL THE GOLF YOU CAN HANDLE READ METRO MANAGING EDITOR RON VARRIAL’S SUBPAR GOLF BLOG ON THE WEB AT WWW.METRO.US/GOLFBLOG

Are you suffering from Diabetes?

The course: Congressional doesn’t have the sex appeal or the players’ ire of a usual Open course. At 7,574 yards, it certainly favors the long bombers, but won’t punish them as harshly with its graduated rough. The winner will likely be five or six shots under par. In closing: The back nine measures 170 yards longer than the front but has just one par 5. The par-4 18th is a killer and should set up high drama Sunday, measuring 523 yards.

Three of the last five U.S. Opens have taken place on the East Coast. Two were in California.

Pretenders: Defending champ Graeme McDowell missed the cut at Augusta National this spring, and shot a poor 79 in the final round of the Players Championship. Meanwhile, world No. 1 player Luke Donald has the game’s hottest flat stick, but has missed three of the last four Open weekends. Rory McIlroy, 22, won’t immediately bounce back from that final-round choke at the Masters. Odds highlights: L. Westwood: 12-1 L. Donald: 12-1 P. Mickelson: 14-1 R. McIlroy: 16-1 S. Stricker: 20-1 M.

Contenders: Phil Mickelson has been the runner-up in five Opens but will be able to recover from wayward tee shots here. K.J. Choi has won twice at Congressional and claimed the Players last month. Dustin Johnson choked away the 54-hole lead at Pebble last year but ranks fourth in driving and second in birdies on Tour in 2011. Eye on: Bubba Watson.

The tournament was last played at Congressional 14 years ago, in 1997.

Replacing Tiger Woods: We’ve seen 10 different winners in the last 10 majors. McDowell figured to take over the throne as the game’s most dominant player but has crumbled in 2011 after three wins and a Ryder Cup victory in 2010. The simple answer? No one replaces Tiger.
