City kills Wissahickon treetop course Declined. After community outrage, the city decided to not build a treetop course. There will be no treetop adventure coming to Wissahickon Valley Park, of-

ficials said. The city terminated the project after community resistance became too big an obstacle to overcome, officials said. Bob Allen, director of property and concessions management for Philadelphia’s Department of Parks and Recreation, said the city didn’t want to ruin any partnerships

with community organizations. “There was actually a small but vocal group that I think misrepresented the project to the community and got the community to sign petitions against it, and we’re not about getting into adversarial relationships with folks from the community and park users,

There will be no zip line at Wissahickon Park. / FILE PHOTO

so we withdrew the project,” Allen said. In late March, city officials discussed the proposal to build an outdoor adventure course, which included a zip line, on five acres in the Roxborough park. Neighbors and community groups voiced concerns at a public meeting, pointing to en-

vironmental, traffic and vandalism concerns. He “doubts very much” the project could be resurrected. Friends of the Wissahickon were not immediately available for comment.

Del. teacher charged with indecent exposure A Delaware gym teacher and coach is suspended from his job following his arrest on the charge of indecent exposure. The principal at Appoquinimink High School sent an email to students’ parents Monday informing them Charles Word, 31, won’t be able to come on school grounds or attend activities involv-

ing students following his arrest in Newark on Sunday, according to the school’s website. Word, of Ogletown, Del., allegedly exposed his genitals to a woman he had called over to ask for directions Sunday morning. He reportedly followed the woman in his car, but ran from the area when the woman threatened to call police. Word was arrested later at his home on the charges of indecent exposure and harassment.

Though turnout at yesterday’s primary elections was low — Committee of Seventy’s Ellen Kaplan called it “the sleepiest election” during her eight year tenure with the organization — drama still ran high, particularly in the race for Democratic City Controller nominee. Incumbent Alan Butkovitz’s campaign obtained an injunction from an election court judge barring challenger Brett Mandel from electioneering inside polling places after Mandel allegedly handed a campaign sticker to a 2nd Ward committeeman.

According to Mandel, the “sticker” was actually a temporary tattoo. “I was on my way out of a polling place a committeeperson brought me into to meet the Board of Elections,” he said. “On my way out, I saw a guy with tattoos and said, ‘You have tattoos — here’s a tattoo,’ and I handed him one.” Mandel claimed he wasn’t electioneering. “Certainly we know the rules,” he said. “I thought I was just being neighborly.” When Butkovitz — who said his campaign only found “two or three Mandel supporters around the city” — was asked about the incident, he deadpanned, “In some quarters that would be called assault.” Butkovitz added that Mandel didn’t try to affix a tattoo to him. “I think he’s had enough contact with me,” he said. METRO

Preliminary results By press time, only 487 of 1,687 precincts were reporting polling statistics.

Brett Mandel was in second with 29.11 percent of the votes.

Mark Zecca was in third with 8.42 percent of the votes. For full results, visit www.metro.us.

Incumbent City Controller Alan Butkovitz was leading with 62.44 percent of the votes.

Whole neighborhoods razed by tornado that killed 24 Oklahoma. Rescuers continued yesterday to pull people from the wreckage caused by the massive tornado that ripped through the region. Rescuers went building to building in search of victims, and thousands of survivors were homeless yesterday, a day after a massive tornado tore through a suburb of Oklahoma City, wiping out whole blocks of homes and killing at least 24 people. Nine children were among the dead, including seven who died at Plaza Towers Elementary School, which took a direct hit in the deadliest tornado to

hit the United States in two years. Around 237 people were injured. Cadaver dogs sniffed through the scattered planks and bricks of ruined homes yesterday. The 2-mile-wide tornado ripped through Moore on the outskirts of Oklahoma

City on Monday afternoon, trapping victims beneath the rubble and tossing vehicles about as if they were toys. On block after block of residential neighborhoods, there was nothing left but mangled debris. Oklahoma Gov. Mary

Fallin said the death toll could rise. “There may have been bodies that may have been taken to local funeral homes,” Fallin said. The National Guard, firefighters from more than a dozen fire departments and rescuers from other states worked all night under bright spotlights trying to find survivors in the town of 55,000 people. Plaza Towers Elementary School was one of five schools in the path of the tornado. “They literally were lifting walls up, and kids were coming out,” Oklahoma State Police Sergeant Jeremy Lewis said. “They pulled kids out from under cinder blocks without a scratch on them.” Thunderstorms slowed the rescue effort yesterday and made conditions tough for families left with nothing.

Ignorance is bliss

IRS officials deny misleading Congress Top IRS officials told Congress yesterday they were unaware of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups for extra tax scrutiny until recently and did not deliberately mislead lawmakers last year when they did not reveal the practice. Senators questioned the truthfulness of former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman and outgoing acting IRS Chief Steven Miller. At a Senate Finance Committee hearing, several Democrats tried to turn the focus to the IRS’s difficulty in determining whether such groups qualified for tax-exempt status under a law that says they cannot be engaged “primarily” in politics — a loophole they said Congress should close.

Court: Bin Laden death photos can stay secret A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that the U.S. government had properly classified top secret more than 50 images of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden taken after his death, and that the government did not need to release them.

Ireland rejects blame for low tax rate Ireland said yesterday it was not to blame for Apple Inc.’s low global tax payments and had no special rate deal with the company after the U.S. Senate said it paid little or no tax on tens of billions of dollars in profits stashed in Irish subsidiaries. The Irish government, which has seen the luring of U.S. multinationals with low taxes as a key part of its economic policy since the 1960s, said its system was transparent and other countries were responsible if the tax rate paid by Apple was too low. “They are issues that arise from the taxation systems in other jurisdictions, and that is an issue that has to be addressed first of all in those jurisdictions,� deputy prime minister Eamon Gilmore said.

Gay youth. Boy Scouts to vote this week on whether to lift ban Leaders of Boy Scout groups across the country will vote this week on a controversial proposal that would remove the organization’s ban on gay scouts but not gay adult leaders. Hundreds of champions and opponents of the proposed change are expected to rally in Grapevine, a suburb of Dallas, during the National Annual Meeting, which begins on Wednesday. About 1,400 delegates are expected to vote on Thursday on whether to lift the ban on gay youth.

Depardieu: Don’t blame Chechnya for Tsarnaevs

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in 2000 that the Boy Scouts, as a private organization, has the right to exclude gay people. After a two-year study of the ban, the Boy Scouts reaffirmed its commitment to the ban a year ago. The proposal is based on the results of an unprecedented survey of scouts, parents, leaders and the general public on the issue of gay membership, according to Deron Smith, spokesman of the Irving, Texas-based organization.

I agree with Ramzan Kadyrov, who said that the Tsarnaev brothers have a Chechen last name but their upbringing is American,� Depardieu said at a news conference. “[Chechens] don’t carry any responsibility,� said Depardieu. Kadyrov, who has been criticized for his strongarm rule, says tough policies are required in Chechnya to control Islamist violence in the North Caucasus where insurgents wage almost daily violence to create an Islamic state. He has denied that Chechnya had any links to the Tsarnaev brothers, accused of blasts that killed three people and injured 264 others at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. REUTERS

Bradley Manning: Unexpected icon A popular guy. The WikiLeaks whistleblower has been compared to Martin Luther King Jr. and has a merchandise line. Why is he so popular? For San Francisco’s Pride Parade, Bradley Manning is the popular choice for Grand Marshal, and his youthful features will decorate posters while the ex-soldier stands trial for treason charges that could see him serve 50 years in jail. More than $1 million has been crowd-sourced in legal support, and the “Bradley Manning Support Network” operates a merchandise store selling stickers, posters and the black T-shirts visible at all of the whistleblower’s court appearances. An unlikely alliance

Protesters gather at a closed Llewellyn Avenue gate Dec. 17, 2011, in Fort Meade, Md. / GETTY IMAGES The charges Manning, 25, released almost 1 million classified U.S. documents to WikiLeaks in 2010. •

Dozens of cities held protests around his pre-trial yesterday and will do so for his court martial on June 3.

Quoted

“Part of it is that he can’t help but be intensely enigmatic. We can’t interview him, so everything we can say about his motives is speculative.” Tom Payne, author

of veterans, “hacktivists” and gay rights groups has united to support Manning. “People are drawn to his actions, which they see as a form of civil disobedience,” biographer Denver Nicks told Metro. “Manning has become a poster boy for all kinds of things wrong with our society, from dysfunctional state secrecy to the trag-

edy of the Iraq War to homophobia — he appeals to disparate campaign groups because his story ticks a lot of boxes.” That appeal is deep as well as broad. “He is arguably the most significant ‘war resister’ in history,” says support group member Ben Griffin, who has campaigned since 2010. “Manning has shown

a tremendous sense of integrity and justice for someone so young, as well as compassion,” adds U.S. Campaign Organizer Emma Cape, who argues Manning honors Martin Luther King Jr.’s principle that “one who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust … is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.” Such fervent following has given Manning a quasi-cult appeal. “Part of it is that he can’t help but be intensely enigmatic. We can’t interview him, so everything we can say about his motives is speculative,” says Tom Payne, author of “Fame: What the Classics Tell Us about Our Cult of Celebrity.” However, a smaller anti-Manning campaign has also emerged, with nationalist U.S. groups calling for him to be executed.

Jones’ baby daddy is still a secret

1

January Jones is not going to reveal the identity of her infant son’s father, so stop asking. At least that’s a lesson the New York Times learned recently while interviewing the “Mad Men” star. “That’s my son’s business. It’s not the public’s business,” she responded. Jones apparently got the notion to keep the press at arm’s length from a famous pal. “Jack Nicholson once told me, ‘You should never give your personal life away, otherwise people will pick you apart. They’ll never believe in your character,’” Jones explained, adding: “Women should have lots of secrets. It’s our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?” I can’t wait in six years when we’ve totally forgotten about her and her memoir comes out and we’re all like: Yawn.

Does Brad Pitt suffer from face blindness? Plenty of Hollywood stars probably have trouble remembering everyone they meet (because, you know, they meet a lot of people). Brad Pitt, however, thinks his poor memory might be an actual medical condition. He finds it nearly impossible to remember the faces of anyone he meets, he told Esquire. “I took one year where I just said, ‘This year, I’m just going to cop to it and say to people, “OK, where did we meet?”’ But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every

2 now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, ‘Thank you for helping me.’ But I piss more people off,” the star says. This causes social anxiety for the star, so he doesn’t go out much anymore. Pitt says he’s planning to get tested to find out if his forgetfulness is actually a mental condition called prosopagnosia, or face blindness. If I were Brad Pitt’s doctor, I’d probably look into other, more likely causes of Pitt’s forgetfulness (psst: I’m referring to the sticky icky here).

Reeves: A most excellent food binge

Keanu Reeves is 48. Dude is allowed to get paunchy in his middle age, which it looks like he’s happily doing judging from these photos from Cannes. But if I can ask one thing of my ‘90s super crush: You gotta keep that in check, my friend. You are much too attractive to let it get to the point of no return. What I’m getting at is, please don’t turn into Val Kilmer. Being a man, there is a happy middle ground to growing older gracefully in Hollywood. You don’t have to get injected with

Human Growth Hormone or get tons of plastic surgery, but you don’t have to become red-faced and doughy, either. Just, you know, eat vegetables and exercise. Maybe get Pierce Brosnan’s dermatologist and trainer on the phone for a quick chat. Rage against the Val Kilmer (inset) light, Keanu! Come back to us!

Traveling through Europe for a wedding ... sound familiar? Film. Pierce Brosnan’s new movie sounds a lot like “Mamma Mia,� but the actor is cool with it. You won’t hear Pierce Brosnan singing in his new film, “Love is All You Need� — but not by his choice. “I did say to [director] Susanne [Bier], ‘Look, maybe a nice song here,’� he says before breaking into song. “‘Lemon tree, very pretty!’ I thought, ‘Maybe, what do you think, Susanne?’ She smacked me down. No

standing up [and] falling down — just the usual trials of being human.� The plot follows Brosnan’s character, Philip, as he travels to Italy for his son’s wedding. A chance pre-wedding meeting with the mother of the bride (played by Danish actress Trine Dyrholm) sets into motion a change in heart for Philip. If you read that and can’t help but be reminded of another film of Brosnan’s, you’re not alone. “Oh, the ‘Mama Mia’ of it all is certainly there, and I don’t think Susanne or anyone concerned

singing. The world is safe away from my singing.� Brosnan’s self-deprecating humor and confidence (“I’d sing again in a heartbeat — I don’t give a damn what they say,� he tells us) is evident offscreen. But onscreen, in his new film, he’s much more subdued as a vineyard owner who’s become jaded by love. Could the actor relate? “No, not to the extent of this character, not really, but there are many emblems within this film which I could identify with — being a father, being a widower, being a single parent, having it up to the back teeth with women and love, bumping into the furniture,

I think they’re both on the shelf, as bookends.” Playing the romantic lead is nothing new for the actor, who oozed sex appeal as James Bond — except here, there were no spy tools to play around with. Brosnan doesn’t hesitate discussing the 007 series, which he handed over to Daniel Craig, saying he hopes to be remembered “as a believable Bond, as a good Bond, as an entertaining Bond.” “All I ever wanted was to be able to stand there

Brosnan isn’t bitter about ending his role — far from it, in fact. •

and carry the film and create an audience, [or] bring back an audience that may have fallen by the wayside,” he says. “When I stepped into those shoes, it’d been dormant for about six years, so it was quite an undertaking. It was quite daunting, and so you felt like you were in a time capsule. You felt like you were in a period piece in some respect, caught between Roger [Moore] and Sean [Connery]. They were always present in my life, especially Sean, because he was the one that I first saw and that captivated me as a young man.”

Cannes’ buzz-worthy films Festivals. At the halfway point, the Cannes Film Festival already has some exciting wares.

Coming soon

Still to debut We’re still waiting on: Nicolas Winding Refn’s ���Only God Forgives,” with The Gosling; Jim Jarmusch’s vampire film “Only Lovers Left Alive”; and James Gray’s “The Immigrant,” with Joaquin Phoenix and Marion Cotillard.

The Cannes Film Festival ends this coming Sunday. So how is it looking at the halfway mark? That is, apart from the non-film stuff: the guy who fired a starter pistol and not one, but two, jewelry robberies. But let’s talk movies.

‘The Bling Ring’ is very Sofia Coppola-y No one makes movies like Sofia Coppola — which to some is a good thing, since it means there are less like them in the world. Her latest again wallows among the pampered, wealthy and shallow, only this time the leads (including Emma Watson) are those who steal from them. Reviews have been the usual for this polarizing filmmaker, with some finding the film as dumb as its heroes — shades of “Spring Breakers” and “Pain & Gain” — and others finding it an incisive and striking embodiment of materialism in the age of Twitter. Then again, Paris Hilton, who plays herself, loved it.

“The Dance of Reality” is being called overlong, but also warm and, best of all, teeming with wild images.

But everyone LOVES ‘The Past’

Oscar Isaac plays an unpleasant, 1960s-era folk singer in the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis.” / ALISON ROSA, CBS FILMS

Everyone loves ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

Alejandro Jodorowsky is actually back

The Coen Brothers’ latest — about an unpleasant 1960s folk singer (Oscar Isaac) — is being received as one of their scruffy triumphs. Comparisons to “The Big Lebowski” abound, and the up-andcomer Isaac — in a cast with Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman — is supposed to, after this, become a star. And that’s great, but it won’t be released in America for another six months.

The Chilean-born wild card was once one of the original midnight movie kings, thanks to his 1970 acid western “El Topo.” His career since has been bumpy. But this year, the 84-year-old rules Cannes. A documentary about his aborted adaptation of the book “Dune” — which was to feature Salvador Dali and a score by Pink Floyd — is there. Ditto an actual new Jodorowsky film, his first since 1991’s (awful) “The Rainbow Thief.”

Asghar Farhadi scored an Oscar and a bona fide art house hit with “A Separation” in 2011. His second film — also about a divorce, this one with an international cast that includes Berenice Bejo of “The Artist” — is being heralded as just as absurdly strong, which should make Farhadi the biggestname Iranian filmmaker since Abbas Kiarostami. Again, you’re probably going to have to wait till far-off awards season to see how amazing this is.

Five dancers, full nudity and a light sculpture Dance. An experimental new show at White Space explores power dynamics. Zornitsa Stoyanova had never been asked to perform sans clothing before she appeared in Jumatatu Poe’s “Private Places” at last year’s Live Arts Festival. “Initially I wasn’t sure how I felt about it,” says the Bulgarian-born, Philly-based dancer/choreographer. “But I became If you go

“shatter ::: dawn” Through May 29 8 p.m., $15-$25 White Space 1417 Second St. www.herebegin dance.com

fascinated by it, because all of a sudden the performer had so much more power. I’m interested in the power dynamics between performers and their audience — how to make everyone comfortable while at the same time giving them an experience that is potent and interesting.” Stoyanova’s thinking about those dynamics over the past year and a half has led to her new piece “shatter ::: dawn,” which premieres tonight. The show is designed to be a remarkably intimate experience, with only 10 audience members sharing the space with the five dancers of Stoyanova’s Here[begin] Dance company, as well as a light sculpture. “If you go to a gallery or a museum, most of the time you end up walking by yourself at a distance from other people,” Stoyanova says. “I’m very interested in the difference between how performance art is so communal and museum or gallery art

“shatter ::: dawn,” an intimate new show, opens at White Space tonight. / ZORNITSA STOYANOVA

is such a solitary experience.” “shatter ::: dawn” also grew out of a series of workshops Stoyanova took with renowned international choreographers, many of which dealt with questions of being bodily present and breaking the fourth wall. Working with-

in a large space, the dancers will lead the audience through the experience of the piece, not using explicit directions or interaction but through the subtle suggestions of their movement. The five performers spend the first half of the piece in the nude, building on the reaction Stoyanova

had to working in Poe’s piece last year. “All classical high art is nude bodies,” she says, “but as soon as you put it into live performance, people freak out or think it seems avant garde or new, when in reality it isn’t. The first half moves very slowly to allow the view-

ers to feel that it’s normal, and also to go through all their, ‘Who’s got bigger boobs and who’s got a bigger ass?’ — which you do, even if you don’t know you’re doing it.”

Rest up: This dance will go late into the night Tango unchained. The festival dances in this weekend. It was a big day for tango aficionados when Pope Francis was elected in March. The new pope had danced tango as a young man in his native Argentina. “In the 24 hours after he was named pope, I have friends all over North American who have tango studios who were interviewed on TV,” says Meredith Klein, director of the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School. “Apparently in [Pope Francis’] youth, before he took his calling and joined the church, he danced tango to some extent. He enjoyed the faster milonga, which

calls for more sprightly dancing.” You never know — a future pope might just be in the ranks of the third annual Philadelphia International Tango Festival, which takes place this weekend at the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School in Fishtown, the festival’s sponsor, and the Ruba Club in Northern Liberties. “We dance late into the night and then we start again the next morning with workshops for all levels, from beginners on up,” says Klein, who studied tango in Argentina and opened the Philly school in 2008. With all that dancing, don’t you need a rest now and then? “Argentine tango is a social dance based on walking,” Klein says. “Walking is

the bottom line. It’s a dance you can dance for many hours and still dance. It’s not like you’re jumping around and you get very tired in an hour.” Tango has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity worldwide since the restoration of democracy in Argentina in the 1980s, Klein says. She expects about 500 dancers at the festival, with everyone from tango experts from Argentina, the birthplace of the dance in the 1890s, to beginners partaking in the fest’s Absolute Beginner track. Most events accept at-the-door registration. “People are coming to Philadelphia from all over the United States,” Klein says. “The tango community has been growing enormously over the last five years.”

These ‘Heroes’ are not as young

Theater. Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of a play about veterans gets a Philly premiere. At 26, M. Craig Getting is at the other end of the age spectrum from the characters he’s directing in “Heroes.� Tom Stoppard’s adaptation of Gerald Sibleyras’ play “Le Vent Des Peupliers,� which will close Lantern Theater Company’s season, is the comic tale of three World War I veterans plotting to escape from their retirement home. But Getting felt that he could relate to these characters on a different level. “These men who served in World War I were younger than I am now when they served,� Getting says, “and it changed their lives forever. They never lost sight of who they were at that

time, so my way into the play has been to bring my age to the table as something that these men would love to tap into. I’ve also had the luxury of working with some really talented older actors, so I knew right away that my

job was not to bring my own experience to the table as much as help them mine their experiences.� A King of Prussia native, Getting studied theater at Kenyon College in Ohio before returning to the region, where he’s

How to make a flip, not a flop Real estate. We talk to an expert about what it takes to flip a house in Philly. Call us optimistic, but it seems like the housing market is gradually starting to steady itself. This year, reports from various sources, including the National Association of Realtors, were showing positive numbers and outlooks for the market, which got us wondering: If we were feeling saucy, what would it take to flip a house in Philly? We spoke with Mike Tomasetti, real estate investor and owner of Philly Home Flipper, to find out.

Updating an old kitchen can give a house a whole new look. MIKE TOMASETTI

A home on Alder Street, before house flipper Mike Tomasetti stepped in... / MIKE TOMASETTI

The kitchen, new and improved. / MIKE TOMASETTI

It’s all about location Sounds cliche, sure, but there’s a reason this is the golden rule of real estate. “Investing in desirable neighborhoods reduces risk by ensuring a strong pool of buyers,” Tomasetti tells us. “Areas consistently in demand are Bella Vista, Queen Village, Society Hill and Washington Square West.” Of course, a flip-worthy house will not be cheap in these hoods. “These areas require a high capital investment,” says Tomasetti, “but they can reward big returns.” Tomasetti reminds us that neighborhoods in transition — which he says includes Pennsport, Kensington and Francisville — are also worth investigating. “These areas

...and after. / MIKE TOMASETTI

are desirable to first-time home buyers and require less capital.”

Budgeting Make sure you crunch the numbers, and remember that every aspect of buying and selling has a price tag. “Before closing a deal, walk through the property with your general contractor to get a solid estimate

of construction costs,” says Tomasetti. “If you plan to use investors, make sure you know the cost of those funds. And talk to your insurance agent. Consider closing costs of the purchase and sale.”

Know your buyer Your flip could be dazzling, but if it isn’t what your

buyer had in mind, it could be a flop. To get a good sense of how much a buyer might be willing to pay and what amenities are likely to be most coveted, “tour open houses in the same neighborhood and get a good understanding of the product,” Tomasetti says.

In the news

Low down payment & closing cost grants

Is it a good time to buy? Home Depot Inc reported higher than expected quarterly results and raised its sales and profit outlook for the year on Tuesday as the world’s largest home improvement chain benefited from a nascent recovery in the U.S. housing market. The news pushed the retailer’s shares up as much as 3.4 percent to an all-time high and gave

fresh evidence that the U.S. housing market was improving after years of weakness. For the first time since 2008, sales to contractors and professional customers grew at a faster pace than those to regular homeowners and other shoppers, CEO Frank Blake said on a conference call. “This quarter’s outperformance from the pro segment is a positive sign” of a housing recovery,

Blake said. A bubble in the U.S. housing market was at the core of the 2007-2009 financial crisis. During the downturn, Home Depot’s sales at established stores fell more than 20 percent in such markets as Florida and California. In recent quarters, the company has gotten a boost as housing markets have rebounded in regions where it has a heavy presence. “In the first quarter, we saw less favorable weather

compared to last year, but we continue to see benefit from a recovering housing market that drove a stronger-than-expected start to the year for our business,” Blake said. Recent government data showed permits for single-family homes rose 3 percent to 617,000 in April, the highest since May 2008, while newly issued building permits, a gauge of future construction, rose 14.3 percent.

The gladiator sandal

What it says: You’re a laid-back, no-fuss kind of guy who probably doesn’t work a traditional 9-to-5. Thanks to Vans, this shoe is as much of a wardrobe staple to 20and 30-somethings as pleated chinos are to their dads. This spring they come in all sorts of new styles, like the retro 1950s model up top.

What it says: You’re the guy who gets a pedicure and possibly even peruses the street-style blogs, where these shoes have been cropping up. Gladiator-style sandals, like the solid-strapped pair pictured below, are sold pretty much exclusively to the fashion pack.

What it says: They’re the kind of shoes that womanizer Daniel Cleaver from “Bridget Jones’s Diary” would wear while speeding off for that steamy weekend away. So if that’s what you’re going for, the shoe pictured above is for you. The cobalt color gives the classic revved-up sex appeal, especially when teamed with a perfect St. Tropez tan.

What it says: You’re aware of trends (bright trainers are, like, so now). This is also ideal for those of you who give rules the middle finger. Think: the guy who wears a suit with sneakers to the company conference, a la Steve Jobs.

The color-blocked boat shoe

Try: Thom Browne boat shoes $520, www.mrporter.com

Ways to improve the Facebook app

Have a smartphone? Chances are you use the Facebook app. / MASHABLE

Cellular. Here are some tweaks that can make the most-used mobile app even better. At the beginning of this year, Facebook overtook Google Maps as the mostused mobile app in the U.S. The social network giant also recently introduced a controversial new mobile interface, Facebook Home. Earlier this week, Home hit 1 million downloads. Love it or hate it (or both), Facebook is a cornerstone of the mobile experience. But being in the spotlight means taking your share of criticism. And if the Facebook app represents our smartphonecentric lives, well, it has a few issues. None of them are deal-breakers, but we love to tinker.

1

Embrace line wrap Facebook frequently truncates the longer

titles of shared content in its mobile News Feed. Instead of making reasonable space for posts that need a little more explanation, Facebook disregards the practically ancient technology of line wrapping in favor of this lazy shortcut. Abbreviating your friends’ posts not only makes them instantly less appealing — it makes Facebook’s mobile experience noticeably inferior to Facebook on the desktop.

2

Chat head support outside the iOS app When Mark Zuckerberg revealed Facebook Home for Android, he also showed how chat heads would work — namely, across all apps. Playing a game or scrolling through Instagram? Chat heads can pop in and make communication more fluid. On iOS, however, the little chat bubbles are strictly confined to the Facebook app, and mostly serve to crowd the screen and obscure posts. Alleviating this

problem and mimicking Android seems against Apple’s modus operandi, but it’s something we’d like to see.

3

Load links faster in Safari If you’re running the Facebook app on iOS, you’re used to staring at a blank white screen bordered by indifferent blue as Facebook struggles to connect with Safari. It is a cruel screen, and we’d prefer never to see it again. 5. Faster, faster, faster

The perennial truth of the Facebook app: It could stand to be faster. We want to see what friends are up to, but we get tired of sitting at the top the news feed watching a wheel spin. Don’t tempt us with the promise of new posts if you can’t deliver, Facebook. Increased speed across the entire app would be appreciated.

4

Smoother gestures on pictures Facebook’s photo-viewing has grown more beautiful and intuitive over time. But we still accidentally close photos on a regular basis, and the “doubletap to like” feature from Instagram would be a welcome addition now that the two networks are so intertwined.

Fix your diet “I suggest incorporating lean protein, calcium-rich foods and vegetables as soon as possible,” says Anita Mirchandani, M.S., R.D., C.D.N. and the founder of Fitmapped. com. “Try to avoid highfat triggers such as pizza, burgers, fries and sweets.”

If spending the day crawling through mud pits, traversing through water and leaping over fire sound a lot more fun than an hour at the gym, you’re not alone — obstacle races are all the rage these days. Planning to unleash your inner warrior at a mud run this season? Check out these tips for attacking the course.

If you’ve been training on the regular, your body should be good to go, Villepigue says. “Taking a day off the day before a race will allow you get the necessary rest that allows muscles to be completely fueled and ready to work.”

Eat right

“Eat a healthful diet the day before a race,” Mirchandani says. “I don’t think you only need to eat rice, pasta and bread. I think that at least 4-6 servings of protein is important also. A good plan would be to have protein and carbs for every meal — for example, an egg sandwich for breakfast, a grilled chicken wrap for lunch and a lean

protein [with] pasta/rice/ quinoa/cous cous and greens for dinner.”

Drink up (water, that is) “Drinking more water the morning of race day is great, but it won’t necessarily cover you unless you were effectively hydrating a day or more before,” says Villepigue.

get dirty? The morning of

Have a bite to eat But don’t go overboard on a big breakfast, Mirchandani says. Opt for “a mini-meal of at least 200 calories,” like a banana and a slice of toast with peanut butter.

Dress right Check the weather and map out the course before you leave so you can plan what to wear, advises Mike Silverman, a physical therapist at NYC’s Hospital for Special Surgery’s James M. Benson Sports Rehabilitation Center. “Many of these mud runs involve you repeatedly going in and out of water, so wearing too many layers can weigh you down and too little may make the day very uncomfortable.”

Vermont’s Windham Hill Inn has created an “After Tough Mudder” package ($991.50) for participants in need of a little post-race pampering. It includes two nights at the hotel, a champagne cocktail upon arrival, daily breakfast and tea, a five-course post-workout meal for two, a bath with Epsom salts and a deeptissue massage.

Post-race

Don’t stretch!

Fuel yourself

“You’re basically telling the muscles to rest,” Villepigue says. “A dynamic warm-up is key to prepare the muscles for what’s about to happen.” Try jumping jacks, high-knee kicks or a short jog. “One of the most common reasons why people get injured before any type of endurance activity is because they are not properly warmed up,” Silverman says.

“First, hydrate,” Mirchandani says. “Then, a medium piece of fruit is always good to consume soon after. After 60 minutes, a protein-rich snack is ideal.”

Strap on your water “Put a little harness on or a little backpack,” Villepigue says. “A lot of time people don’t even realize they’re dehydrated because they assume that you’re thirsty when you’re dehydrated and that’s not true. For us to have really efficient mus-

cles, we need to make sure that we’re drinking water before, during and after the race.”

Don’t try anything new “Try not to introduce anything on race day that you haven’t already tried before,” Mirchandani recommends. “For example, don’t take energy gels on race day if your body isn’t used to them. Focus on consistency.”

MEREDITH ENGEL

meredith.engel@metro.us

Stretch it out Stretching after the race can reduce soreness and “help elongate the muscles,” Silverman says. “Hold contractions for approximately 20-30 seconds and perform multiple repetitions.” Also, make friends with an ice pack after the race: “Keeping an ice pack on the affected joint for 15 to 20 minutes will help decrease pain and inflammation that may have developed with the run,” he says.

Even though skin cancer can be as deadly as breast or any other cancer, people still take chances with sun and tanning bed exposure. Every year, there are more new cases of skin cancer than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer combined, according to The Skin Cancer Foundation. We had Dr. Ellen Marmur, a New York-based boardcertified dermatologist and member of the American Academy of Dermatology, give us the lowdown on staying healthy.

WELLBEING

skin cancer She adds: â&#x20AC;&#x153;UV light is a known carcinogen. An SPF of 30 to 50 is now recommended. Sunscreen is essential, but even when using a sunscreen continue to be smart. Stay out of the sun [around 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.].â&#x20AC;?

The diďŹ&#x20AC;erent types of cancer â&#x20AC;&#x153;Melanoma is the least common, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most serious,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Marmur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you catch it early enough, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fine. Once melanomas grow deeper, the mortality rate skyrockets. Then, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basal cell cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it looks like a pimple. Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crusty and darkish red.â&#x20AC;?

What to look for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look for the ugly duckling,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a lot of moles or discoloration, look for the one that grows faster. Commonly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brown â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s red, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forming its own blood vessels. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bluish-brown, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone deeper. Check your skin from head to toe. If in doubt, seek medical help.â&#x20AC;?

Just one (one!) session in a tanning bed ups your risk of melanoma by 20 percent, according to The Skin Cancer Foundation. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it!

Seriously, stop tanning â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tanning beds are known to increase the risk of skin cancers by 75 percent,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Marmur says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one should use them, no matter what age.â&#x20AC;?

Redheads â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pay attention The old adage that redheads are more susceptible to sun damage is no old wives tale, it seems. A

report from BioEssays says that people with pale skin and red hair are at greater risk of cancer because they synthesize a pigment called pheomelanin, which gives red hair its color and is carcinogenic, independent of UV light. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got those luck-ofthe-Irish locks, be extra careful about slathering on SPF, tossing on a hat and seeking out shade.

Why it matters to me â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent most of my life playing soccer outdoors, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always diligent in applying sunscreen. That all changed when my father discovered a bump on his eyelid that turned out to be skin cancer. My father was lucky to have caught it early. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now cancerfree. Many men overlook the importance of sun protection. In 2012, The Skin Cancer Foundation found that nearly half of men donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear sunscreen. So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve partnered with The Skin Cancer Foundation and the makers of Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic sunscreens to educate men on the risk and how they can protect themselves.

There’s no reason to traumatize everyone Re: “Article shines light into a dark place” (Metro, May 20) I agree 100 percent with your article “There’s blood on your labels.” However, I completely disagree with letter writers Ananda Whelan and BJ Tillman, who say it was well-done for the shock value and perfectly fine to post anything to the front page of the paper. Ananda Whelan made the comment that it is OK for the children here to see it because the children there do because they live there. The whole point of the article was to point out about conditions in those

countries. Subjecting young children here to that is the wrong way to get the point across. JOHN SCHULTZ, VIA EMAIL

Diaper article a real stinker Re: “No diaper? No problem, with EC” (Metro, May 21) Your paper is no place to talk about potty training for babies. I found your article on it very repulsive! I’m sure that people who have infants would agree. It stinks! RICHARD CLIFFORD, VIA EMAIL

Phils fans still warming up to Young at third base MLB. Michael Young is proving his worth at the plate, but the city’s faithful have yet to extend open arms. Considering the numbers and his stature, it was surprising witnessing the short lines to collect Michael Young’s autograph at the Phillies’ ALS festival last week. Young’s 44 hits lead the team, and he is on pace to finish with more than 2,300 career hits. “I can’t believe we don’t have to wait long for a Michael Young [autograph],” a young fan said. “He could get in the Hall of Fame.” Indeed. The classy third baseman has a chance for enshrinement if his 36-year-old body remains intact and he continues to be productive. However, there’s not as much love as you would expect for Young in Philly. Could it have something to do with his lack of extra-base hits (9)? Could it have something to do with Young grounding into 11 double plays by mid-May?

“I don’t think people in Philadelphia understand and appreciate Michael Young yet,” a National League scout said. “He’s a solid player who hits everything on the nose.” Young hits the ball so hard that double plays are part of the deal, just like strikeouts for Ryan Howard. In 2006, Young grounded into a careerhigh 27 double plays with Texas. But there were no complaints from Rangers fans since Young hit .314 with 103 RBIs. The guy who appreciates Young the most is arguably the most popular athlete in Philadelphia. “I can’t tell you how much I love it that Michael Young is on this team,” Cliff Lee said. “The guy is the epitome of what you want in a ballplayer.” Young’s stats are a huge upgrade over Placido Polanco, who was oftinjured and ineffective for the Phillies. “Polanco killed them last year,” said an NL scout, “and now you have a guy who very well could hit .300 and have 200 hits.”

Growing up in the Andretti household, the first family of IndyCar racing, could have taken its toll on a less mature driver. The pressure to win the Indianapolis 500 is unavoidable, like seeing an impromptu mud-wrestling match in the famed Snake Pit. For Marco Andretti, the youngest driver in the Andretti clan, it was a motivator. He remembers seeing the flash of the cameras when he was only 9 years old, cruising around go-kart tracks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s added pressure, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve driven these things,â&#x20AC;? said Andretti,

pointing to go-karts during a recent media day event at the Lehigh Valley Grand Prix indoor karting venue in Allentown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At 9 years old, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not mature enough to wrap your head around how that can be a positive for you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What are all these cameras doing? I just want to go race.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that long ago that a 19-year-old Andretti was preparing for his first Indy 500, a race that saw him take second in the second-closest Indy 500 in history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going into my eighth Indianapolis 500.â&#x20AC;? Now, a seasoned vet at just 26, he enters this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indy 500 brimming with confidence. He had the third-fastest qualifying time last weekend and ranks second in the points standings (123). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always said I

Auto racing. Patience will be key to breaking Indyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Andretti Curseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been heartbreak at Indy for the Andretti family. It has its own Wikipedia entry, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Andretti Curse.â&#x20AC;? Mario Andretti won the Indianapolis 500 in 1969, and no one in his lineage has won since. Marco Andretti (Marioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson) has had many close calls, including a second-place finish in 2006. In 2007, he led most of the way before crashing on the backstretch. Marco finished in third twice (2008, 2010); and probably should have won last year after leading for 59 laps. Again, he crashed with 12 laps to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been close three times,â&#x20AC;? Marco said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patience is something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned.â&#x20AC;? As much as Marco wants to win at Indianapolis, he also wants to win the overall points championship. While he is still searching for his

Marco said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worked hard on consistency in the offseason, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right on target with that. This used to be the toughest part of the schedule for me, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see results on the part of the schedule where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lacking.â&#x20AC;?

And the winners are â&#x20AC;Ś San Francisco and Houston. The NFL announced yesterday that the 49ers, who are constructing a new stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., will host the 2016 Super Bowl, while Houston was awarded the 2017 game. Both cities edged Miami for host honors. The 2014 and 2015 title games are scheduled to be played in New Jersey and Arizona, respectively. Two months ago, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie openly lobbied to get the Super Bowl in Philadelphia. Lurie said he would wait to see how this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowl â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first one being played in cold weather â&#x20AC;&#x201D; turns out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will, yes. I will, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a success,â&#x20AC;? Lurie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New York will help us.â&#x20AC;?

Nick Foles took more (slightly more) reps than Mike Vick with the ďŹ rstteam oďŹ&#x20AC;ense Monday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only May, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read too much into this.

Dennis Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is listed atop the depth chart at right tackle. Kelly has been pushing rookie Lane Johnson for the spot early on.

Converted defensive ends Brandon Graham and Trent Cole continue to spend time at linebacker. The two pass-rushers are being groomed to play in the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new, hybrid 3-4 defensive scheme.

â&#x20AC;˘

Keep an eye on the safety position. Returning starters Kurt Coleman and Nate Allen are ďŹ ghting oďŹ&#x20AC; newcomers Patrick Chung and Kenny Phillips.

The Eagles also got backing from the NFL to renovate Lincoln Financial Field. The team plans to add high-definition to video boards, expand luxury boxes and possibly add seats. The stadium currently fits 69,000 at full capacity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are excited to have received league support today for our stadium revitalization project at Lincoln Financial Field,â&#x20AC;? team president Don Smolenski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will share the details of this project with our fans in the coming weeks.â&#x20AC;?

If your symptoms are putting limits on your active life, help is available. Chestnut Hill Hospital is a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology. Skilled surgeons use tiny incisions and minimally invasive techniques to treat endometriosis, fibroids and many other conditions. That may mean less pain, less scarring, and a quicker recovery than with traditional surgery.*

Call 215-248-3100 to find a gynecologic surgeon, or visit ChestnutHillHealth.com to learn more.

*Typical results depend on many factors. Consult your physician about the benefits and risks of minimally invasive surgery for your condition. Members of the Medical Staff at Chestnut Hill Hospital
