The heat is on, viewers Record heat expected for today’s 116th running of the Boston Marathon Emergency organizations urge runners to be cautious Remember that spectators are in danger, too MELANIE STETSON FREEMAN/THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR VIA GETTY IMAGES

The record-breaking heat expected to test the mettle of elite runners in today’s Boston Marathon is also prompting warnings by emergency organizations for the thousands of spectators. “If you’re just standing on a curb for hours in that hot sun you’re just going to bake,” said Jennifer Mehigan, a spokeswoman for Boston EMS. “Take breaks from the sun.” Besides the thousands of runners expected to run 26.2 miles today, there will be even more spectators lining the route from Hopkinton to Boston, and you don’t have to be a runner to suffer negative effects from the temperatures. Many of those spectators enjoy their day off by drinking at outdoor house parties or at bars that have prime real estate along Boylston Street. But officials said that water should be the drink of choice today. Kat Powers, a spokeswoman for the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts, said spectators should use common sense and heed advice “your

mom told you.” “Stay hydrated, dress for the heat and please wear sunblock or a broad-rimmed hat,” Powers said. “And have a buddy and keep an eye on each other and know the signs of a heatrelated emergency.” Powers said Red Cross volunteers and personnel will be manning 24 first aid stations along the route for both runners and spectators. There will be one about every mile. For the runners who become severely overheated, the stations will have immersion baths that are basically ice water to help cool a person’s body temperature. Mehigan said Boston EMS will have about 100 workers on hand for the race either at strategically placed ambulances or on bicycles riding along the route. “One thing you can never really plan on in Boston is the weather,” Mehigan said. “Every year it’s different and it even changes through out the day.” MICHAEL NAUGHTON

Local fashionista’s tips on running race in style This year’s Boston Marathon is going to be a scorcher, so it is important to dress appropriately while looking good. That's why local fashionista Dani Incropera, a senior marketer at Rue La La, has put together some tips for those attending the event. Incropera will be hitting the streets herself to take part in the 26.2 mile trek from Hopkinton to the Hub representing “Team Red Cross” and the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts, so Metro asked her how she plans on completing the tumultuous task — in high style.

I am more apt to hit the road in better style. For this marathon I am wearing a black head band that says “FOCUS” in capital letters with a sequined red bow in my pony tail to represent the

Wear something that makes you feel secure, confident and proud. You don’t want to be thinking that bystanders are looking at your butt jiggle or your tummy sticking out. Cover up what bounces, bobs or flops. Carry or wear a piece with meaning. When you are feeling pain, or having doubts of finishing the race, this piece will give you the strength you need to never stop and never quit. It will remind you to push through until you cross the finish line. Do not put fashion before comfort. If something is rubbing, chaffing, falling down, rising up, twisting or slipping, do not wear it. METRO/AMERICAN RED CROSS

Atlantic tribute to dead of the Titanic At the shrill sound of a ship’s whistle in the North Atlantic, relatives of some of the more than 1,500 people who died when the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg remembered their ancestors in a poignant ceremony a century later.

fter a week in which Republicans turned Democrats’ rhetorical “War on Women” around on them by shifting the debate from the right-wing’s ubiquitous antiwomen policies into a battle over lefties’ alleged disdain for working mothers, we thought maybe this election battle had played itself out. We weren’t the only ones.

Slate’s Dave Weigel called it for the talking point: “The ‘War on Women’ is over,” he wrote. (Online, at least, women appeared thankful for that.) The Washington Post was less jury, more judge: “Dear media: Stop playing along with fake controversies,” they instructed. It’s almost as if they’d never been through a presidential campaign before! Alas, neither side of this fracas was inclined to obey the orders. Yes, much like our other legacy entanglements — think: War on Terror, War on Drugs, War in Afghanistan — this socalled war seems intent on playing itself out indefinitely. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner went on ABC yesterday to attack Mitt Romney’s argument that the president’s economic policies have unfairly affected women. “It’s a ridiculous argument,” he said. “It’s been largely debunked.” See, Romney keeps saying

that “92.3 percent of the job losses during the Obama years have been women.” This is sort of true, but also not at all: While many have lost their jobs in the recession, Obama’s stimulus saved many more. And while Republicans oppose any and all stimulus, more government spending could have saved still more. (And if it’s true that the government reaction to the 2008 mortgage crisis spawned “The Obama Great Failed Recovery,” as conservative blog Legal Insurrection and many others allege, what was the GOP counteroption? Tax cuts for the rich? Deregulation? Would those help women?)

E

ven Fox News Sunday saw a discrepancy in the Romney claim. Host Chris Wallace called the figure a “little bit of an accounting trick,” saying “all the independent fact-finders have said it’s mis-

leading.” Romney adviser Ed Gillespie shot back: Those were “liberal economists.” The big get in the mommy skirmishes came this weekend from NBC’s Chris Hayes, who found video of Romney arguing in January that poor stay-athome moms ought to get a job so they can “have the dignity of work.” This paints a telling contrast from the campaign’s manufactured outrage after unaffiliated Democrat operative Hilary Rosen said Ann Romney had not “worked a day in her life.” The Romney camp mobilized, using the incident to paint Dems as anti-mom; Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom called it the “‘kill Ann’ strategy.” So which is it, Romneys? Is “stay-at-home mom” a respectful signifier? Or does it imply a lack of dignity? Our moms are waiting. Metro does not endorse the opinions of the author, or any opinions expressed on its pages.

Diddy’s uninvited houseguest PHOTOS: GETTY IMAGES

A 30-year-old man has been arrested for trespassing at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ East Hampton mansion, where he reportedly ate the hip-hop mogul’s food, drank his liquor, tried on some of his clothes and then slept in his bed, according to TMZ.com. Quamine Taylor, who reportedly has a history of mental illness, entered the vacant house through an unlocked basement door and was there for 24 hours before tripping an alarm. But when police and an alarm company representative showed up, Taylor was able to convince them he had permission to be there. It wasn’t until a caretaker arrived and called the police back that Taylor was arrested. Combs’ rep had no comment. Poor Quamine. If only someone had tipped him off that Combs’ mansion was NOT a Notorious B&B, he wouldn’t be in this mess.

Marathon runner has mind-‘joggling’ talent Participant will go the distance while juggling bean bags UNH senior is practicing to break a world record in May His second year at event

T

he expectation of the overbearing heat and the struggle at Heartbreak Hill are enough to worry about for most participants during the Boston Marathon. But University of New Hampshire student Thomas Gounley wanted to add to the excitement and throw some juggling into the mix. For the entire 26.2-mile run, Gounley will attempt to keep three bean-bags afloat during his stride to the finish line. Known as “joggling,” running while jogging, Gounley said Monday’s Marathon challenge is just practice for a bigger event. “I decided to train for the fastest time to joggle 50 miles. Currently it’s eight hours, 23 minutes, which I’m attempting to break in May,” he said. About a year and a half ago, Gounley stumbled upon a list of bizarre Guinness World Records. Joggling was one of them. Using juggling skills he picked up in middle school, matched with his endurance

guess,” admitted Gounley. If he drops the bags while running, Gounley will pick up again and carry on, he said. And as for the awkward glances and chatter he’s sure to attract along his trek, Gounley doesn’t mind. “People think it’s a little ridiculous.

While he is running, Gounley will be shirtless with the words #MeatHouseJoggler scrawled across his chest. Gounley, who is sponsored by the Meat House, said this will allow bystanders to interact and track his location along the route as he attempts to make it to the finish line. “People do tweet about the odd guy in the race — and given Boston’s social media [savvy], there is no better way to test it out. It’ll be a bit of social media experiment,” he said. “I’m surprised no one has run a marathon while wearing a hashtag.” STEVE ANNEAR

Runners to watch in the 2012 Boston Marathon Geoffrey Mutai Mutai set the marathon record last year in Boston by running (and winning) it in 2:03:02. The 2010 winner, Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot, has withdrawn with an “undisclosed injury” which should make it even easier for Mutai. A Kenyan has won the Boston Marathon 18 of the last 21 times, and Monday should make it 19 of the last 22 unless Ethiopia has a say. Running in the heat certainly won’t be an issue for runners of either country.

The Americans Because of the 2012 Summer Olympics, a few prominent American runners aren’t taking part in the Boston Marathon this year. Ryan Hall, last year’s fourth-place finisher in the Boston Marathon and fastest American marathoner is one of those players. But there are a couple of Americans worth noting that will be rocking the red, white and blue. Jason Hartman and Nicholas Arciniaga are the two biggest American names in

this year’s race. They qualified for the marathon by running it in 2:11:06, and 2:11:30, respectively.

Caroline Kilel Kenyan Caroline Kilel is the defending champ, having beaten American Desiree Davila by two seconds in a thrilling finish at last year’s Boston Marathon. But like the men’s race, the women’s race is missing some key racers due to the Olympics, including Davila.

Gebregziabher Gebremariam Gebremariam won the ING New York City Marathon in 2010 with a time of 2:08:13. He ran the Manhattan jaunt even faster last fall, but finished fourth. Gebremariam will also be attempting to land a spot on the Ethopian Olympic team today.

Party on Marathon Monday with class, or the class of 2012 Patriot’s Day, synonymous in most Bostonians’ mind with the Boston Marathon, gives those who aren’t ambitious enough to run 26.2 miles an opportunity to explore ... and day drink. To take full advantage of the party atmosphere, go where the college kids are. At the halfway point of the race, Wellesley Square offers a noisy environment full of screaming Wellesley College coeds. Then, follow the runners to Chestnut Hill, where legendary Heartbreak Hill inspires, or tires, runners as they head towards Boston. You’ll find even rowdier crowds of Boston College students there, and more than a few college kids starting their ‘happy hour’ early. For those who want a more relaxed marathon experience a bit off the beaten path, the Beacon Hill Bistro, a refined French

bistro on 25 Charles St., is hosting a Marathon Monday Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Or you could head over to The Beehive, a trendy spot on 541 Tremont St. in the South End, for a modern, artsy take on the holiday. To fully experience the marathon action, head down to Kenmore Square in the afternoon to watch a throng of marathon runners, fans and crowds from the Patriot’s Day Red Sox game intersect. For an upscale view of the madness, grab a cocktail at Eastern Standard on 528 Commonwealth Ave. and watch from their patio. Finally, finish off the afternoon with the runners in a packed Copley Square and enjoy yourself in the postrun festivities at Post 390 on 406 Stuart St. with a healthy meal of bacon mac and cheese and beer.

Understanding Effie Trinket How actress Elizabeth Banks sees one of the most colorful, reviled characters of ‘The Hunger Games’ Why she wants you to stop watching ‘Jersey Shore’ As Effie Trinket, the escort who preps the kids for “The Hunger Games,” Elizabeth Banks is nearly unrecognizable behind thick makeup and some ridiculous hair and hats. The plucky villainess talks to Metro about

the film’s similarities to reality TV, and her thoughts on “Jersey Shore.” There’s more to Effie than just being a pink-haired villain. As a career woman, she doesn’t have

the best gig.

No, District 12 is terrible. To me, Effie drank the Kool-Aid. She’s on board because she’s in the 1 percent and she doesn’t want to give that up. I think she thinks, “Revolution would be bad. People will die and I might lose my cupcakes.” She’s not one for change. She likes the status quo. I think she shows up in District 12 disgusted, thinks that it’s dirty, wants to go home as fast as possible. I think of PR people and stylists I’ve worked with who go, “Well, I’ll make the best of a bad situation,” you know? And I think that’s Effie. The main thing about Effie is she’s superselfish. It’s all about her. But she’s also thrilled to show off the finer things in life to the kids.

I think Effie’s main thing is she’s ultimately a very optimistic and effervescent, theatrical person. That’s why she has

the job that she has, because she’s spinning the job she has positively all the time. They’re most likely going to die, and she’s seen a lot of kids die. So in her mind it’s like, “You won a lottery ticket. We’re all going to die, but you’re going to go out famous, with a big bang!” That’s Effie’s attitude about these kids. They’re almost definitely going to die, she’s pretty sure of it. But they just won a ticket to a great reality show. The book and the movie do a

great job of satirizing that aspect of our culture — reality TV. I don’t know how much reality TV you watch ...

I don’t mind the competition shows where people actually have a talent that they bring to bear on something, like “Project Runway,” the chef ones, “Idol,” “Voice,” “The X Factor.” But the message that we reward bad behavior — I personally don’t believe that the 15 minutes of fame is worth your dignity. And I think there are a

few people that come to them with something to offer the world, and that’s a little bit more interesting. But I don’t watch “Jersey Shore.” I know people go, “I watch it because it’s so crazy. I would never do that.” But you’re watching it and you’re giving them ratings. You’re rewarding them by watching it. NED EHRBAR METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

Take your massage to the next level Acupressure can help heal headaches, tension and fatigue Bring balance to your body and mind This hands-on approach is all about working energy pathways

If you want a real hands-on approach, you need to try acupressure. STOCKBYTE

Acupressure is more than a massage — much more. Based on Asian medicine, acupressure heals the body through various hands-on techniques and movements, which stretch and manipulate the body depending on an individual’s condition. There are a number of energy pathways, known as meridians, that go through the body internally, working to strengthen the functions of organs, the mind and skin, says Susan Krieger, a New York expert in Chinese Medicine. The hands-on techniques can focus on where the problem is, such as the shoulders, but also center on points that can help release tension, such as the legs and feet. By working through the energy pathways, acupressure releases endorphins in the brain. “Endorphins are responsible for the calming effect,�

Healing powers Acupressure can help relieve the following: Headaches Back, neck and shoulder pains Facial lines and wrinkles Fatigue Stress Insomnia Digestive issues Arthritis Help with concentration

Krieger says. Acupressure is based on the information the body gives to the practitioner, but Krieger also says that a practitioner won’t just immediately treat patients without talking to them first. A practitioner will talk to the patients, examine their face and take their pulse. “I always talk to [patients],� she says. “I want to hear from them.� Acupressure is for people of all ages and in all stages of health. Krieger recommends the treatment to anyone who needs to find a change and who is willing to take the time to do some healing for themselves. “Acupressure is all about bringing balance to body and mind,� Krieger says.

JOB The revamped Occupational Outlook Handbook website provides detailed info on hundreds of careers Which fields look promising The best source of information for people researching careers is now even better, with a more informative and easier-to-use website. The Occupational Outlook Handbook, online at www.bls.gov/ooh, provides detailed information on hundreds of careers. That includes a description of each job and its work environment. Jennifer Flynn, the assistant director of career services at Philadelphia University, relies on the handbook to help students identify potential career paths. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enthusiastic about the updates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks great,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier for explorers to pop in and

look around, and the search function is much better.â&#x20AC;? You can now search by salaries, educational requirements, on-the-job training, projected number of new jobs

your results will turn up five jobs, two of them with solid growth rates (preschool teachers and veterinary technicians). One of the new features Flynn especially likes is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;similar occupationsâ&#x20AC;? tab for each entry. For instance, the veterinary technicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description gives six other jobs working either with animals or in labs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will help people explore their options,â&#x20AC;? she says, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a college student picking a major or an adult looking to change careers.

Photo op: Getting your start in the wedding industry Wedding photography can be a lucrative part-time gig or a full-time business Pros tell us how to break in and what it takes to be a success

S

amuel Bendall works 9 to 5 as an assistant account manager for an L.A.based PR firm. But over the last five years, he has created a rewarding — and even lucrative — part-time career as a wedding photographer. Bendall, a recent California State-Northridge grad, books about one wedding per month and grosses between $1,500 and $6,000 for each one (a fairly industry-standard rate). The work is certainly more rewarding than his former part-time jobs in the restaurant business, but building a viable wedding photography business is far more challenging than most people realize. “I don’t do it full-time because of how much work is involved in a wedding. It’s hard to convey to people,” he explains. “It’s more logistics than anything: meeting with the family, the wedding planner. Plus, there’s a lot on the back end of processing and packaging good images. You spend about 10 percent of your time actually at the wedding.”

Work it, girl: Looking for a new gig should keep you full-time busy.

For a faster job search, a few things not to do

T

hough many have mastered the art of quick consumerism via sameday shipping and doorstep delivery, we still struggle with expedited job shopping. In her new book, “Same-Day Résumé,” career expert Louise Kursmark offers valuable advice on minimizing time in the workless waiting room. “The key to speeding up the process is in nontraditional job search techniques,” says the author. According to Kursmark, the best catalyst strategies involve do-nots rather than dos:

Do not be a cyber scavenger

“Not everything’s on the Web. In fact, most employers would rather not post a job online, because they’ll have to look over hundreds and hundreds of résumés and potential interviewees. They would rather ask around — staff, family, friends, business colleagues.” Do not make an appearance

“You want to maximize your resources, one of which is time. In-person soliciting is very time consuming and usually doesn’t produce high payoffs unless your visit is specific and purposeful.” Do not count on your current circle

“Expand your network and

Keep it positive! Despite the job market, Kursmark emphasizes the importance of staying optimistic about your prospects. “Though the unemployment rate is high and college grads aren’t finding opportunities, realize that 91 percent of people are still working. There are jobs for dedicated, smart people — you only need one among thousands of opportunities. Feel good about what you have to offer.”

CASSANDRA ELDRIDGE

look into professional associations. You can make great contacts through these associations to establish who you are in the field and find others in your profession. If they know of jobs, they’re going to steer you in the direction of companies that are hiring.” Do not slack off

“If you’re not currently working, your search should be a full-time job. Even if you’re in the interviewing process, you need to continue networking efforts, résumé polishing and industry research.” TIFFANY KANG

Cassandra Eldridge’s shoots range from $3,000 to $5,800.

A

nd, unlike other parttime jobs, wedding photography requires both passion and talent. Bendall has been a photographer since high school and avidly pursues his own artistic photo projects. But, perhaps most importantly, the job demands an intrinsic feel for public relations. “You can’t just be a good photographer, you have to be an incredible interpersonal communicator: Explain concisely, to difficult people, what exactly you’re doing,” says Bendall. “It’s like Oscar Wilde said: ‘If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.’” BRUCE WALSH

bruce.walsh@metro.us

Blog inspiration Married couple Justin and Mary Marantz own one of the premier wedding photography businesses in the country, based in New Haven, Conn. Their blog, “Pancake Session,” is full of wisdom, resources and inspiration for budding wedding photographers: www.justinmarantz.com.

Expert Q&A Cassandra Eldridge is a wedding photographer in Chicago. She shoots roughly 30 ceremonies per year. How do you know if you have the talent for the job? A lot of people think that if they own a camera, they’re a photographer. But there’s obviously composition, thinking outside the box and timing — developing really good gut instincts. If you’re interested, [then] practice, practice, practice and see where you wind up. There are a lot of wedding photographers out there who are extremely talented. It’s important not to compare. How much do you charge per wedding? Between $3,000 and $5,800. Do you hire assistants? Yes, one per shoot. I pay a flat rate of $200 and encourage them to build their own portfolio. That’s how most people break in. How do you find your clients? Word of mouth has been amazing. I’m a heavy blogger, and I’m very active on social networking.

Tax cuts on rich don’t help the poor Most people believe that if President Obama taxes the rich for more money, it will go to the poor. This couldn’t be further from the truth. If hold-up men take your money, the hold-up men use it. If it is given to a charity, it is used by the charity. If the government takes it, the politicians will use it for their pork barrels. Raising taxes on the rich does not help the poor. ALAN JACOBS, VIA E-MAIL

entire GOP “War on Women” disqualified from consideration but Romney himself is now Joe Sixpack-by-proxy. Let’s hope the voters are smarter than the insiders. DAN WYLIE-SEARS, BRIGHTON

President Obama took time away from the 99 percent to defend the .000001 percent of women who can afford to choose to stay home to do whatever they do when they have five children and a husband who makes a lot of money with other people’s money killing other people’s jobs. SUZY SANDOR, VIA E-MAIL

I think Ann Romney is right. Women’s decisions should be respected, in all areas. She, and all women, must have the right to make their own life choices. It’s a shame her party and her husband don’t think so.

Mr. Brayden Simms is again doing damage control for his heroes, the Obamas and the Democratic party. Ms. Rosen said that Ms. Romney actually never worked a day in her life as a stay-at-home mom. This

PAUL SIMONS, VIA E-MAIL

Ann Romney worked hard raising her five children. Hillary Rosen was incorrect saying she hadn’t worked a day in her life. As a result, it seems Ann Romney’s maids and butlers didn’t work a day in their lives.

I don’t know why, she only visited the Obama White House 35 times.

B’s looking for a spark Bruins must find way to beat Holtby in Game 3 tonight Can Pouliot stay hot on third line Backstrom looking healthy again a scary thing for B’s Can’t fully rely on Thomas GETTY IMAGES

A week ago, even the most pessimistic Bruins backer would not have uttered the following: “The B’s must figure out a way to solve Braden Holtby.” The Capitals goaltender has allowed just two goals in six periods and three extra sessions as Washington has suddenly become a defensiveminded squad. Three things to look for as the Bruins play their first postseason road game of the 2012 playoffs tonight in D.C. (7:30, NESN):

Need for a breakout game Judging by the scores alone, it’s obvious that the Bruins offense is struggling. But it can’t all be that Holtby is just hot. The B’s offense deserves plenty of the blame here, particularly Tyler Seguin, who was expected to step up in his second NHL postseason. Seguin went largely unnoticed in Saturday’s game despite playing 26 minutes. Bergeron has also struggled and has surprisingly lost his fair share of faceoffs in the series.

Nicklas Backstrom was the most active player on the ice Saturday afternoon as he not only netted the game-winner on a wrister, he also mixed it up with Patrice Bergeron and Tim Thomas. The Caps center was playing just his fifth game back after missing 40 games because of a concussion. Just two years ago, Backstrom was a 100-point scorer in the league. It’s scary for Bruins fans to think that he has room for improvement on the offensive end in this series.

Sox seeking sweep of Tampa Bay Tampa Bay’s James Shields is matched up against the Red Sox’s Daniel Bard on the mound this morning as the Sox look to take all four games of the series with their AL East rival. David Ortiz brought the offense in Boston’s 6-4 victory over the Rays on Sunday. The DH went 3for-4 and bashed a goahead double off the center field wall in the bottom of the sixth. New Red Sox outfielder Cody Ross got things started for Boston in the second inning as he clocked a three-run homer over the wall in left. Felix Doubront pitched well but it was Vincente Padilla who got the win. METRO/MB

A year ago at this time, Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards was roasting Benoit Pouliot for leaving his feet in an attempt to drill Johnny Boychuk. This April, things are drastically different as Pouliot has been one of the early surprises of the 2012 postseason. He had an assist in Game 1 and a thrilling goal in Game 2. The left wing has a chance to lay down a legacy in Boston if he can become a postseason hero. The foundation for such a thing is there. MATT BURKE

What’s up with Ray? We’ve seen this from the Celtics on numerous occasions (Shaquille O’Neal, anyone?). They tell you one thing about an injury, and it’s actually more serious than what they say. That seems to be the case again, this time with Ray Allen. The C’s sharpshooter has been nagged by an ankle injury since slipping on the court against the L.A. Clippers at the start of their West Coast trip in March. Allen missed all three games of the three-in-three-days stretch, and is questionable for the Knicks game on Tuesday.

Two outta three ain’t bad OK, so the three games came against the Raptors, Nets, and Bobcats — three bottom feeders in the NBA. Even so, to play three games in three nights is quite the toll on aging players

— as seen by the fact that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett sat out the third game mostly for rest reasons (Pierce has a minor foot issue). After an ugly loss on Friday to the Raptors, the C’s bounced back nicely on Saturday and Sunday. Without the Big Three, they still managed to beat the Bobcats behind Rajon Rondo (20 points, 15 assists) and Avery Bradley (22 points).

Down the stretch What looked to be a grueling end-of-season schedule for the currently No. 4 seeded Celtics may not end too badly. The Knicks, who host the C’s on Tuesday, are banged up without the likes of Jeremy Lin and Amare Stoudemire. The next night, the C’s will host the Dwight Howard-less Magic, currently holding down the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference. JIMMY TOSCANO sports@metro.us
