Gameday protest targets Gov. Corbett’s proposals Flyover. Keystone Progress hired a plane to tow a banner decrying the governor over yesterday’s Eagles game. Advocacy group Keystone Progress used yesterday’s Eagles game to raise awareness about Gov. Tom Corbett’s plan to overhaul the state’s Medicaid program. “The governor’s plan really takes what is a well-run, efficient public entity and turns it over to a corporate entity, which will not be accountable to the public,” Keystone Progress executive director Michael Morrill said.

At issue Under Corbett’s proposal brought forth last month, the state, rather than expanding the Medicaid program as it is, would instead give subsidies to low-income residents, allowing them to buy insurance through the federally-run health care exchange.

The group hired a plane to fly over Lincoln Financial Field towing a banner reading, “Gov. Corbett loves the Cowboys — hates PA families.” They also handed out mock Corbett football cards featuring the governor decked out in

The move would push

Cowboys garb and labeled a “quarterback for corporate privateers.” Morrill said the group staged the event because, in part due to overshadowing federal crises, the Medicaid issue “has dropped off the radar screens” of many.

many who are currently served by Medicaid into for-profit health insurance plans. •

Corbett’s plan further requires most beneficiaries of subsidized health care pay monthly premiums and participate in work search or job training programs in order to receive insurance.

“We were just trying to find some different ways to do things,” he said. “We thought the Eagles are coming back to life, and it’s kind of a metaphor for what we wanted to do with this issue — bring it back to life and get it some more attention.”

Morrill said the expansion is supposed to benefit those who aren’t poor enough to get Medicaid as it is currently administered, but who still can’t afford private health care. Under Corbett’s plan, however, those residents would be required to pay monthly premiums. “[The premiums] aren’t a lot by middle-class standards, but if they had extra money, they wouldn’t be eligible for this in the first place,” Morrill said. “Forcing them to pay even nominal amounts, many families won’t be able to make the premium payments, which means those folks won’t have health insurance.”

MATTHEW M. TURNER METRO COLUMNIST

BIG WINNERS: BOOKER — AND THE TEA PARTY Newark Mayor Cory Booker cruised to victory over Steve Lonegan during the U.S. Senate special election in New Jersey last week, becoming the first black senator in state history. That much was expected. In hindsight, the most interesting dynamic did not come from Booker winning; it came from Lonegan and Gov. Chris Christie and the split in the state’s Republican party. There is a division between the Tea Party and moderate Republicans. This was on full display at their Oct. 9 debate. I witnessed the hostilities firsthand. Booker was first Quoted to be questioned and the first to go on the offensive; But more his choice of attack was importantly, what claiming Lonegan is a Tea Party member. it really tells us is “We send people to the conservative Washington to work Republicans are together to solve our problems. Right now, we have gaining power and shutdown traction everywhere a…government because of Tea Party — even in liberal extremists. My opponent is the leader of the Tea Party New Jersey. here in New Jersey,” Booker said. If we examine who helped support Lonegan, the claim appears accurate. Sarah Palin, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky helped him raise money. Lonegan made light of Booker’s claim. “Mayor, your consultants, strategists and your acting coach can tell you to use Tea Party as much as possible,” Lonegan said. “Matter of fact, thousands of people across the United States of America are donating $10 to this campaign every time you say Tea Party.” But then when asked whom he admired in Congress, Lonegan rattled off a list that included Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, two popular Tea Party candidates. Interestingly enough, the presidential hopeful Rand Paul raised more money than Christie did. Reports said Paul raised $59,100. Christie raised $41,000. This is an utter embarrassment for Christie. But more importantly, what it really tells us is the conservative Republicans are gaining power and traction everywhere — even in liberal New Jersey. Politicians seeking higher office will take notice of this and alter their message. Lonegan sure did. He became more conservative as the race progressed. I heard him blatantly copy some of Paul’s talking points. One line he repeated was that America should stop sending foreign aid to Middle Eastern countries that burn our flags. When asked about his view on foreign policy, Lonegan took Paul’s side too, instead of established Republicans like Sen. John McCain. Despite the fact that Lonegan lost the election, it’s clear the Tea Party won the battle between the moderate Republicans. They showed that their brand of conservatism is the future of the Republican Party. This battle will not be going away any time soon. Turner is a columnist for Metro Philadelphia.

Can he win the war against A wake-up call his addiction or will months later, a he surrender all he Three group formed in the center of the empty courthas left?

High on heroin, the former Army infantryman misses his name being called. Hunched in a pew in a Philadelphia courtroom in early June, the holloweyed, rail-thin soldier’s head hangs forward. Drool drips down his chin. “Matthew Hallman,” the clerk repeats. The stringy-haired, sullen-faced man blinks, his mouth agape. The lids barley lift around his bloodshot eyes. The clerk’s gaze falls upon him. She turns and throws her arms. “Matt needs to go up,” interrupts Guy Garant, the city prosecutor. Hallman staggers up. Garant’s gaze shifts to the folder’s laundry list: DUI. Car crash. Heavy drug use. Veteran. Two tours, Iraq War. He peers back and tugs at his glasses. Is Hallman like other veterans with similar backgrounds, a criminal? Will his addiction consume him, or can he fight back? With a guide, Hallman stumbles in front of mustached Veterans Court Judge Patrick Dugan. Hallman shivers. He hugs himself. “This guy isn’t going to survive,” Garant mutters. Dugan snaps, points. “Look, if you ever come back into my courtroom like this again,” he says, “I’m throwing you in jail.” Garant leans in close.

room: the prosecutor with a hand in his suit pocket, the public defender with paperwork, the therapist with his backpack, a parole officer with thick glasses, a mentor holding his rolled-up paper. Here’s the deal: Veterans Court is a flag. It’s a wake-up call. Someone who’s served his or her country is on the brink of physical violence, overdose or death, and he or she breaks the law. The prosecutor and defense attorney agree on a rehabilitation plan and direct him or her toward members of the circle: Here’s the help. Here are the mentors. Now get back on your feet. If you refuse to change, you receive judgment. Some succeed, others don’t. Most flutter between rock bottom and resurrection. So, what about Matt Hallman? Well, fortunately, he crashed into a wall.

FIGHTING BACK

Almost dead On April 19, 2012, on his 34th birthday, Hallman hopped into his Ford Explorer. In those days, he had two speeds: looking for a score or already high. That day, he was sick, scratching to “get right.” While navigating down Aramingo Avenue, he dropped his phone. While one arm was on the wheel, the other danced on the floor mat. He pulled his eyes off the road as the truck climbed the I-95

I think they have really helped him. They care.” He takes a sip. “He’s come a long way,” he says. “And he has a lot further to go. He knows he’s an addict, and I think

he’s come to terms with that.” “Matt sees the people at the methadone clinic,” he says , waving his hand and turning his head. He strokes his white goatee. “He sees how lost they are.

Apparently he gave permission for police to pull his blood, but he doesn’t remember. Surgeons at Hahnemann University Hospital welded titanium plates to his orbitals, upper lip and forehead. His jaw was

wired shut for six months. A year later, state police charged him with a DUI. He dropped in and out of courtrooms, but never entered a jail cell — even after he showed up to Veterans Court, high as a drone. Guy Garant pokes at his General Tso’s chicken, trying to explain something. “The thing about Matt was that he was always polite,” he says, “and always admitted that he needed help.” He wipes his mouth. “I figured the program was not worth its weight if it couldn’t help the veterans with the highest needs,” he says. “Any program can deal successfully with low-needs individuals, but a program is truly successful if it can

His father’s story

‘He’s my hero’ Ray Hallman pulls out the glass door of a Center City coffee shop and waves through some customers. Sporting an Oxford shirt with a yellow-striped tie wrapped under a tan sport coat, Hallman’s father waves his hands like a professor and works the room like a police commissioner. He chooses a small, round table in the corner

and sits with his back to the window. He crosses his legs. He was a cop for 33 years, but he’s now head of security at the University of the Arts. How does he think his son is doing? “He’s my hero,” he says. He swirls the coffee in his cup. “What he’s seen and what’s he gone through, I saw the change in him when he came home. I saw

he’s struggled. The losses have been hard on him.” On Hallman’s second

tour he was 26, and the other soldiers were in their late teens and early 20s. They looked up to him. That night, that fateful night, Hallman was supposed to be in the fourth car in the caravan, but his buddy jumped up in front. Ray shakes his head. “I can hear him,” he says. “Sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night — screaming.”


PHILADELPHIA deal with the high-needs individuals.” With a cigarette in one hand, and a coffee in the other, Hallman sits on a bench in a park near the Community College of Philadelphia. He returned to school this fall to study biochemistry. When Hallman was still overseas, inside his parents’ Center City home his mother committed suicide. So Hallman wants to learn about how drugs affect the brain. His mother was on anti-depressants. He wants to understand and force change “so that things that happened to my mom, doesn’t happen at all,” he says. He’s worried about his father. Ray Hallman is a diabetic, and his son worries about his diet. “Losing my dad is a huge fear,” he says. “My father is my hero.” He’s stuck on the eventualities of human life. “I know what it’s like to lose a parent, and I’ve gotten so close to my dad that I think it’s going to be harder for me than it was to lose my mother. I’ve grown so much closer to my dad than I ever was to my mom. And I’m scared to go through that again.”

‘You just feel gigantic’ Hallman reaches into his pants pocket and pulls out a pack of cigarettes. He starts walking along the leafy, brick-laid path on UPenn’s campus. War couldn’t have been all bad, right? Does he ever miss any of it? “I miss the adrenaline.” He veers right, toward the Veterans Affairs Medical Center where every morning he receives a shot of methadone, the dose of opiates that are supposed

to help wean him off his addiction to opiate-based drugs — namely heroin and prescription pain killers. His treatment is supposed to end by Christmas. When soldiers rode the bird for an air assault mission, he said, he liked to listen to “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix. “It’s all blacked out,” Hallman says, his arms spread wide. The anxiety began to grow. Images flashed. Memories blinked. Focus narrowed. Pulse quickened. They got the green light. Soldiers flew. “There’s just no feeling like that in the world,” he says.“In a helicopter, over power lines, flying low. You know you’re going out to do something extraordinary and you have to be

very precise when you’re going out to get somebody. And you just feel gigantic. “And it’s crazy, because it’s war,” he says. “Sometimes I felt like I was in a movie.” Smoke trails upward. “It’s just absolute excitement.” He takes a drag. “It’s like a cascade.” He exhales. “Your heart’s going a mile a minute.” Smoke fumes renew. “You’re so finely tuned to everything. You’re so sharp. Everything is so clear. You are hearing and seeing everything. Paying attention to everything. Everything is just so in the front of your mind.” He pauses. “It’s like being high,” he says. “It’s like being high.”

Army carries. He joined the military at 17; his parents signed a waiver. He also smoked, snorted and shot up as many drugs as you can fathom. He spent 15 years in and out of every bottle and needle he could find. His first marriage was spoiled by abuse. “Veterans Court gave me a second chance,” he says. “It gave me the time to get my act together,

and to show that I can do better.” The last time he used was Jan. 12, 2012. He’s now a therapist in the drug treatment court, which works similar to Veterans Court, and he mentors other young people in recovery. Here’s his advice: “Identify the demon. That negative emotion they’re battling either consciously or subconsciously, that

Inside The Last Drop Coffee House in Washington Square West, with his back to the windows, wrapped in a black T-shirt that stretches “Join!” atop a picture of a Star Wars storm trooper, Sgt. Matthew Hallman sits. He arranges his phone, his coffee, a spoon. “Around dinner time,” he says, “with nightfall covering Iraq, we turned the corner onto a dirt road.” The middle car is not in a straight line with the cars in front and back of it. “You have to make sure you constantly change tactics,” he says. His friend, Sgt. Conrad Alvarez, was commander of the fourth truck. Mike Matlock, the really big, black kid, filled with energy, he was the gunner on the fourth truck. Hallman was the commander and gunner and was on the third truck. “My truck cleared and as soon as Alvarez’s truck came up and turned the corner — ” Hallman watched an explosive-filled projectile spit hot copper as it hit the vehicle. He got on the radio and frantically dispatched: “Al’s truck is hit. It’s bad.” Alvarez lost his head. So did the medic in the back. Matlock was almost entirely cut in half. “It was such a direct hit,” Hallman shook his head. “They aimed the charge so well that it punched through three layers of reinforced safety glass and decapitated both of them.” There was only a little piece of jaw hanging from the medic’s neck. Hallman slips his phone back into his pocket, and takes the last few drops of coffee. “Alvarez had just turned 19.”

Step 12

The future Hallman stands at the bottom of the steps that lead to the West building. He’s having trouble with calculus and needs a tutor. He’s recently relapsed. Before a test, he’ll give himself time to sit quietly and get pumped up. “I tend to get real nervous about things and then choke,” he says. “I’ll know the material, but I’ll get nervous and I’ll forget and make mistakes.” Hallman flicks his cigarette and squeezes the straps of his backpack. “I can do it,” he says. “Matthew Hallman.” Judge Dugan smiles. “Present,” he says. He rises to his feet in a pressed blue suit. “Who are you?” Dugan deadpans. Hallman shakes off a sheepish smile. “I knew you’d say something.” Dugan chuckles. “You look like a professional. How you doing?” Hallman pulls at his fingers. “I’m a little excited, uh, in a couple more weeks I start school.” Dugan interrupts: “I’m sure those professors are gonna love it.” People laugh. Hallman mumbles. “Well, I have clean urine [tests]. … Basically, things are looking up. I’m

doing well, sir.” He tells the judge he’s started running again. He’s ran four miles in the last two days. Public Defender Melissa Stango apologizes: “We keep forgetting to show you, judge; we have a picture of Matt when he first came home.” “Oh, yeah,” Hallman says. “You should see that. Some people think I actually airbrushed my head onto another body.” Laughs scatter. “I can’t imagine you would have done that,” Dugan says. “I can’t imagine.” Peg Maynard of the Veterans Association says that one of the therapy groups Hallman does well in was changed and now conflicts with his Veterans Court check-ins. Maybe mix it up with him, Dugan says. How long is the session? “It starts at 10 a.m.,” Hallman said. “Depending on the group dynamics, sometimes it ends, you know — ” “Like if you hit the floor,” Dugan says, “it’ll be two and a half.” It gets a big laugh. They negotiate. “Go to that meeting,” Dugan says. “But I’ll see you back here soon,” he adds. “Keep it up.”

Hallman chats with his parole officer.

needs to be offset by the high. Understand the issue, educate on addiction

If you just stop using drugs, you’re not really changing your life. You’re just not using anymore.” He taps one finger at a time: “You’re probably

Despite debt drama, US still outshining Europe

The U.S. economy has been hurt by a recent budget standoff in Washington and it is important that the nation does not go through another around of brinkmanship, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said yesterday. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press� program, Lew said he was confident the economy, which he described as resilient, would recover from the 16-day partial shutdown of the federal government. He described events leading to the shutdown as a political crisis rather than an economic one. REUTERS

If Wall Street’s record high is a signpost, the U.S. economy has every chance of pulling further ahead of a stuttering Europe despite new battles to come in Washington over the government’s budget and debt ceiling. “There’s probably more confidence now that next time around there won’t be this kind of brinkmanship, that there won’t be another shutdown and that there certainly won’t be a default,� said Ira Kalish, chief global economist for Deloitte, the professional services organization.

President focused on fixing glitches in health care rollout Opponents. Many Republicans were criticizing the program long before its rocky launch. President Barack Obama is frustrated by the problems with the rollout of his signature health care reform and the administration intends to fix them. Fresh from the U.S. budget battles, Obama today will turn his attention to convincing Americans that the health care program can be fixed, despite the initial problems. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press� yesterday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said the administration was determined to repair the technical glitches in the online insurance exchanges that are a central part of the program known as “Obamacare,� which

launched on Oct. 1. “I think that there’s no one more frustrated

than the president at the difficulty in the website,� Lew said. He said the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “has got plans to fix this and it has to fix this. It has to be done right.� Obama told aides in a recent Oval Office meeting that the administration had to take responsibility for the fact that the website

was not ready on time. He is expected to address that in his remarks today. Administration officials are expected to travel the country in the coming weeks to encourage people to sign up on the exchanges, targeting areas where there are high percentages of uninsured, according to one official. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is expected to provide private health coverage to an estimated 7 million uninsured Americans through the new online marketplaces that opened for enrollment in all 50 states on Oct. 1. But the website, HealthCare.gov, the administration’s online portal for consumers in 36 states, was hobbled by technical problems — including error messages, garbled text and delays loading pages. “We are committed to doing better,� the department said in a blog post yesterday.

Capacity. Big data heralds return of the Cray supercomputer The pioneer of supercomputers in the 1970s stood on the brink of obscurity 20 years ago but is now surging back to prominence. Its shares have almost doubled over the past 12 months. The explosion of data — measuring weather, traffic, health and countless other areas — coupled with a desire to tease meaning out of it, demands greater computing power than is accessible via standard machines. “The assumption was that supercomputers were cliche five years ago. People thought, ‘I can run my simulation on my laptop,’” said Barry Bolding, a Cray

vice president, at the company’s Seattle headquarters last week. “That may have been true, so long as the data associated wasn’t growing as well. More data means bigger computer, bigger computer means more data.” REUTERS

Profit. Convincing people to think it is an indispensable part of their lives is key to lure advertisers.

Cost

$500K

A basic Cray cabinet costs $500,000 and up and is roughly the size of a refrigerator. Big customers can group 200 or more into massive supercomputers worth hundreds of millions of dollars, such as “Titan” at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

A violin that was being played as the Titanic went down was sold for $1.46 million at auction on Saturday, a record price for memorabilia from the doomed ocean liner. Band leader Wallace Hartley played the instrument, trying to calm passengers as the

ship slipped into the frozen waters of the North Atlantic in April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. Hartley’s band played the hymn “Nearer, My God, To Thee” as passengers climbed into lifeboats. Hartley and his seven fellow band members all died after choosing to play on. More than 1,500 people died. REUTERS

Retired schoolteacher Donald Hovasse signed up for Twitter about a year ago at the urging of his daughter. He lost interest after trying the service a few times and finding lots of celebrities but few of his friends using the online social network. “I didn’t really get the point of it at all,” said the Las Vegas resident. “Most of them were people I wasn’t interested in hearing what they had to say anyway.” He said, however, that he does check Facebook every day to see what his friends are up to. Hovasse’s experience highlights a risk for investors as Twitter Inc. marches toward this year’s most anticipated initial public offering in the United States, Users

“Twitter is a great service; it’s still got growth in front of it. But in my opinion, I would say the opportunities are less than that of Facebook, and it has to be valued appropriately.” Dan Niles Chief investment officer of tech-focused hedge fund firm AlphaOne Capital Partners

expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange in mid-November. According to a Reuters/ Ipsos poll, 36 percent of 1,067 people who have joined Twitter say they do not use it, and 7 percent say they have shut their account. The online survey, conducted Oct. 11 to 18, has a credibility interval, a measure of its accuracy, of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. In comparison, only 7 percent of 2,449 Facebook members report not using the online social network, and 5 percent say they have shut down their account. The results have a credibility interval of 2.3 percent. People who have given up on Twitter cite a variety of reasons, from lack of friends on the service to difficulty understanding how to use it. Convincing ordinary people to think of Twitter as an indispensable part of their lives is key to the company’s ability to generate a profit. REUTERS Revenue

Manson is teaming up with ... Disney? Shock rocker of our ‘90s hearts, Marilyn Manson, will be joining the cast of the Disney/ ABC show “Once Upon a Time,” reports Rolling Stone. The singer will be voicing the character of Shadow. “We’ve always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson,” show creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told the magazine. “We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl.” For those not old enough to remember the ‘90s, let me tell you: With his references to satanism, cross-dressing and dark music videos, Manson really, really freaked out old people — like, even more than twerking. And now he’s going to be on a Disneyaffiliated show. God bless America.

Efron has a sober birthday Zac Efron celebrated his 26th birthday with a round of golf with his dad during the day and a small shindig with friends — no girls allowed — at the Chateau Marmont, according to Us Weekly. The star, who completed a stint in rehab earlier this year for reported problems with cocaine and alcohol, was joined by Robert Pattinson, Joe Jonas and Michael B. Jordan for the festivities. It’s interesting that

Jonas was there — he has reportedly been battling his own drug addiction, according to Star magazine. “He’s been dealing with substance abuse issues for quite some time,” a source says. Jonas has also recently been photographed with the same addiction specialist who helped Demi Lovato following her stint at a treatment facility.

Hundreds of fans attended Morrissey’s sole appearance in Europe (in Sweden, no less) to promote his new memoir, “Autobiography.”

ography is breaking records in the U.K. — but American readers are out of luck. “Autobiography” was released Thursday in the U.K. and sold more than 20,000 copies on its first day. However, there is no U.S. release date set. The former frontman for The Smiths apparently demanded that “Autobiography” be published by the Penguin Classics imprint, which is usually the imprint for, well, classics. The publisher justified it by calling the book a “classic in the making.”

1-800-YES YES YES Sandra Bullock ruminates on how all of you keep seeing “Gravity.” / WARNER BROS. PICTURES

Space is the place Box office. Once again, people en masse have fallen for “Gravity.” The 3-D outer space thriller “Gravity” continued to rocket past its box office competition over the weekend, eclipsing newcomer “Carrie,” to maintain its tight grip on the U.S. and Canadian box offices. “Gravity,” starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts stranded in space, grabbed $31 million in ticket sales at North American theaters to hold the top spot for the third consecutive weekend. It had overall ticket sales of more than $170.6 million. “Captain Phillips,” a Tom Hanks movie based on a real-life pirate attack, was second with $17.3 million in ticket sales. “Gravity” beat the $17 million made by “Carrie,” which came in third. The remake of the 1976 hor-

ror film with Sissy Spacek stars 16-year-old Chloe Grace Moretz as the shy girl who wreaks havoc on her tormentors by using her telekinetic powers to destroy her high school prom. “Carrie” is based on horror writer Stephen King’s 1974 novel. That book was first adapted by Brian De Palma and received Academy Award nominations for Spacek and Piper Laurie, who plays her abusive mother. Top 5 earners

Other new releases didn’t fare as well. “Escape Plan,” starring aging action film stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a prison escape flick, opened with $9.8 million in ticket sales for fifth place. “The Fifth Estate,” a thriller based on the news-leaking website WikiLeaks, was eighth with $1.7 million in ticket sales. The film, coproduced by superstar director Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks studio, received mixed reviews from critics and a thumbs-down from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who told the New York Times the film is “a reactionary snoozefest that only the U.S. government could love.” The animated movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” took the No. 4 spot this week, with ticket sales of $10.1 million, pushing the Sonyproduced film past $93 million in its fourth weekend in movie theaters.

HE’S NOT RETIRING

Jackie Chan is almost 60 but still doing action, like “Chinese Zodiac.� / GETTY IMAGES


ENTERTAINMENT

Don’t ask Jackie Chan why his latest film, “Chinese Zodiac,� is the first he’s directed in a long time. As far as Chan is concerned, he should get credit for directing every movie in which he’s appeared, both in the U.S. and China, regardless of what the credits say. “Actually, I’m nonstop directing. We’re talking about ‘Rush Hour,’ ‘Shanghai Noon,’ ‘Shanghai Knights’ — all the movie’s I’ve made, on the set I’m almost half-director,� Chan says. “They have to listen to me.� Chan insists this is by necessity given his experience with coordinating elaborate action sequences — and because he’s the guy who has to do all the ridiculous stunts. But it isn’t always an easy collaboration. “Some directors just pretend,� he says. “I’ve had so many bad experiences — I try to help, and somehow they know ‘Entertainment Tonight’ is on the set filming us. Most of the time I’m directing, but then suddenly one day I realize, ‘Oh, you want to show off for ‘Entertainment Tonight.’ OK.’ Why do you have to have such a big ego? We just want to make a good movie.� That might explain why Chan is back in the direc-

tor’s chair for real with “Chinese Zodiac,� a film many mistakenly believe will be Chan’s final bow as an action star. “In Cannes I announced that this is my last big action movie. So many people forgot the ‘big,’� he says, explaining that he has no plans to retire from acting. “I’m not young anymore. Seven more months and I’m going to be 60, okay? I did this one because I wanted to show that I could still do a big action movie. But when I was doing this one, it was really, really painful, not like it used to be. Me, I want to do it, but my body tells me to stop. How long can I keep doing this?� So what does he have in mind if he’s not going to be jumping off buildings anymore? “In Hollywood it’s difficult to find a good script for myself,� he admits. “These last couple of days I sit down and hear, ‘The idea is you and Chris Tucker, you know?’ Then we meet another screenwriter: ‘A good idea, you and Owen Wilson.’ Then I go to the studio, Warner Bros., and see two writers: ‘You and Chris Tucker.’ ‘Can I do something like ‘Kramer vs. Kramer?’ You know, slow motion on the beach, singing the song, ‘The Sound of Music,’ something! Here in Hollywood, everybody associates me with action, but I go back to my home in China and I can do whatever I want to do.�

IN LOVE AND WAR: A SILENT BLOCKBUSTER GOES DIGITAL ‘The Big Parade’ Cost: $29.95 Company: Warner Bros. Home Video

It wasn’t until “Gone With the Wind� in 1939 that MGM had a bigger hit than “The Big Parade,� a 1925 war spectacular that was one of the silent era’s mightiest moneymakers. Why it’s only now making its digital debut can be blamed in part on its original prints being mislabeled. Even the super-successes can be “lost� due to bureaucratic mishaps. Now that it’s widely available, “The Big Parade� can be seen as one of the more “accessible� of the silent giants. The period’s films can be daunting to modern viewers. Silent

movies shouldn’t be judged for how easily they are to watch for modern audiences, especially those who wouldn’t be caught dead watching old films. But even more so than most, “The Big Parade� feels close to timeless. The story is deceptively simple: Three men — a wealthy scion (John Gilbert) and two workingclass stooges (Robert Ober and Karl Dane) — get swept up in WWI fever and enlist as infantrymen. Overseas, Gilbert’s G.I. falls for a nice, pretty French girl (German-born Renee Adoree), right before he’s sent on what’s essentially a suicide mission. There’s a term for films like “The Big Parade�: “gearshift movies� — films that suddenly kick into

a higher gear in their backstretch. The first 90 minutes are a mix of jokes and romance. This comes to a head in the last hour’s nightmarish battle sequences, with our heroes huddling in trenches, petrified to be ripped by machine-gun fire. Here lies the blueprint for the ideal Hollywood product, one that finds a deft balance between comedy and drama, spectacle and recognizable humanity.

Personal growth

Why you should care Relationships of all kinds oer us a glimpse into our darker sides. Say you feel let down by others — there’s a strong chance you’re letting yourself down in some way. Or if you feel judged by people, you probably have some deep-rooted judgment on yourself. When we see our relationships as opportunities for personal growth, we can begin to accept the tough times.

THREE TOOLS TO HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS Navigating tumultuous relationships can be tough without a road map. Here are three powerful tools to help.

Take care of your side of the street

Zen in the City

GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN WWW.GABBYB.TV Gabrielle Bernstein is the author of “Spirit Junkie.�

If you’re in a difficult relationship, the first step to working on it is to see your part in the chaos. Make a list of all the ways you’ve participated in the drama. Be specific and honest. Once you’ve clarified your part, it’s very helpful to share it with the other person. Take the time to acknowledge how you’ve been participating in the problems. This step is not an exercise in making yourself a punching bag. Rather, it’s an opportunity to make amends.

Talk it out Nothing is more powerful than speaking your truth. This tool was taught to me by my friend Elena Brower, a world-renowned coach and yoga teacher. This exercise is designed to give each party the opportunity to say how they feel without interruption. Here’s how it works: Each person has three minutes to speak without interruption. You can say everything that is on your mind regardless of how bad it may sound. The other person cannot interrupt. When the three minutes are up the other person says, “You have been heard.� Then that person gets a chance to speak. Once the second person is finished, the partner responds, “You have been heard.� So often in conversa-

Are things not so smooth with mom these days? Look inward to see how you may have contributed. / NPINE

tions we interrupt each other to “correct� the other person’s story or defend ourselves. This exercise offers each person the opportunity to share his or her side of the story and fully own it. Most importantly, it gives each person the chance to be heard.

Release The final step is crucial. The only way to move forward happily in a relationship is to release the past. This release comes through forgiveness. This

doesn’t mean you’re cutting the person out of your life; it means you release the energetic grip the relationship has had on you. To do this you can begin each day with the mantra, “I forgive you and I release you.� Whenever you are in a fight or stuck in an old pattern of negativity, repeat the mantra. Be willing to open up to the root causes of the issues at hand so that they can be brought to the surface and mended. Take responsibility for your happiness and actively choose to enjoy your relationships today.

Make that essay shine Editing. We asked professors from around the country for their advice on how to ace a college paper.

Read it loud and proud There is a reason reading aloud is an almost universal staple of composition classrooms — it works. A wide variety of research has shown that vocalizing your own writing causes your brain to process language in a different way. You hear mistakes you never would have caught otherwise. “As a writing teacher, it’s my No. 1 go-to,” says Josh Ambrose, director of the McDaniel College Writing Center. “It’s like when you listen to your own voicemail message, and you’re like, ‘That’s not what I sound like.’ There’s always this disconnect between the voice we hear in our head when we’re writing and the voice that comes out on the page.”

Let the first draft be s—

Essay made easy

Writing your way in For many students, the most important essay they will write is the one that will get them into college. These tips from the book “Write Out Loud” by Carol Barash are geared toward acing the college essay, but they’re valid for any student who wants to write well.

1

Find what really matters to you based on what you have already done.

2

Shape powerful connections between your own experience and what you will contribute to college and work communities.

3 Punctuation isn’t an exact science, but it’s important to know your rules. / GETTY IMAGES Punctual pointers

Remember: It’s not math Nobody — not even James Joyce — can claim to be 100 percent correct when it comes to grammar. (After all, he did exhibit some funky punctuation in “Ulysses.”) “It’s an imperfect science. Some people try to make

it as rigid as math, but that just confuses students — and makes them reluctant to write, because they can’t win,” says David Robson, who teaches composition at Delaware Valley Community College. “Sure, there are hard and fast rules, but you need to bend them from time to time.”

Eloquently coined by author Anne Lamott, a “s— first draft” is nothing to be ashamed of. Many professional writers say it is the key to doing their best work. Yet, professors often cite a fear of embarrassment as an enormous barrier in composition courses.

Go old-school Research has shown that editing on actual paper

helps the brain focus on the task at hand. “Your eye doesn’t take the same care when engaging with a computer screen,” says Samra Bufkins, a writing professor at the University of North Texas. “As soon as the words are on paper, things start jumping out. Your mistakes become more tangible.”

When John V. Lombardi was president of the University of Florida, he had an unorthodox approach to getting to know students and professors: He took a turn at the lectern and taught a course. The subject he covered was something rarely studied on college campuses. The course answered questions about the university itself: How did it pay its bills? What were its hiring practices? How did it allocate funds? “You get a lot of noise

On the other hand “I agree that traditional universities tend to be very stable, long-term organizations. They’re definitely valuable things to have in a community. ... But that doesn’t mean they need to be unwilling to meet market demands. Why can’t the academic side change to meet the changing times when it comes to developing job skills?” Eric Darr, president of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology

and anger at universities. I felt a lot of that was people not seeing the whole. Universities are complicated enterprises, and they’re very tightly integrated,” says Lombardi. He also encourages the higher education community to think more broadly about the difficulties of change. After teaching the course at Amherst College and Louisiana State, Lombardi’s book, “How Universities Work,” will be released in early November. In it, he cuts against

the tone of much of the public debate on higher education. He warns against embracing the notion that colleges should be flexible and quickly adapt to the changing marketplace. For Lombardi, a “change-averse” culture can be a good thing. “Our universities have been successful because they’ve served a valuable societal need. So when you say, ‘We’re gonna fix them in a revolutionary way,’ you’re attacking

what is actually a highly valued mainstream enterprise,” he explains. “Sure, they can always be improved. But they rarely move fast,” he says, adding that students are the ones who feel the effects of change. “One of the great virtues of universities is that — unlike many things in society — they don’t change too fast,” he says.

Student loan borrowers face processing problems Money. Fees and interest rates are adding up. Private student loan borrowers report payment processing errors that hurt their credit and raised costs. Lawmakers may need to step in if the problems hurt the economy, a U.S. consumer watchdog said on Wednesday. Private student loans, which typically carry higher interest rates than federal loans, boomed in the years leading up to the 2007-2009 financial crisis, the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said in an annual report. The bureau estimated outstanding private student loan debt in July at $165 billion. Borrowers who now struggle to pay off those loans reported processing

the private student loan industry were a warning sign. “If the industry fails to correct deficiencies in the student loan servicing market, policymakers may need to act to avoid further negative consequences for the economy,” it says. The bureau has said in the past that students with heavy debt loads would be less likely to take out home mortgages or consumer loans, slowing economic growth. Congress created the consumer bureau in the 2010 Dodd-Frank law and called for an ombudsman to watch over bank and other loans to students pursuing higher education. The report incorporated about 3,800 complaints submitted to regulators starting in October 2012. The report did not deal with federal loans, which make up the vast majority of student loans. REUTERS

Use Facebook to get hired Tools. No need to post that cat photo — get a job instead.

Job Fair

The next time you’re surfing Facebook, you may want to spruce up your profile in the spirit of landing a new job. Work4 Labs, a software company developing Facebook recruiting applications, has launched a Graph Search tool for recruiters. And if its CEO has his say, it will apparently give other social networks stiff competition. According to Work4 CEO Stephane Le Viet, “LinkedIn covers a slice of the market that’s very valuable but it doesn’t cover everything.� He says that workers in retail, hospitality, health care and other industries may not lean on an online professional network to propel their careers.

TABLE GAMES SUPERVISORS Tuesday, 10/22 & Wednesday, 10/23 10am to 4pm Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue 4200 City Avenue Villanova Room 3rd Floor Twin River Casino, Rhode Island’s premier gaming and entertainment destination, is seeking Casino Table Games Supervisors with a minimum of one year of experience in a similar role.

THE PAYOFF! • Rate of pay $185 per shift. • Excellent opportunities for people looking to relocate. Relocation BONUS available. • Full-time employees enjoy industry-leading benefits, including major medical, dental, life, PTO, and more. • Great place to work and play!

“They don’t carry around business cards; they don’t use their professional network to enhance what they’re doing at work,� Le Viet says, highlighting that these workers do frequently use Facebook. Another benefit is that users have friends online, thereby building a robust referral network. “Recruiting has always been about fishing where the fish are,� he says. If you’re among the 1.15 billion monthly active users on Facebook, then you’re swimming in an abundant school of fish that employers are tapping into. Launched earlier this month, the tool allows companies with subscriptions ($1,500/year per recruiter) to click on a job and message candidates for one dollar. “Let’s say you’re searching for a developer at Google; you click on the developer position that’s in our interface and it shows

you the candidates automatically.â€? Although it’s too soon for clients like Pepsi and Groupon to report their hires, the new tool lets recruiters go “above and beyond the rĂŠsumĂŠ.â€? For example, talent acquisition folks looking for a cultural fit can drill into candidates’ interests. “You want people who will have some type of affinity to your brand or to brands [that] are similar,â€? Le Viet says. Given this new era of hiring, what does it mean for the rĂŠsumĂŠ? “RĂŠsumĂŠs are being overtaken by social profiles and your social footprint. I think people will get more and more educated and make sure that everything they display in a public manner is clean,â€? he says.

Melissa McCarthy should flaunt her size Re: ‘Outcry over Melissa McCarthy Elle cover’ (Metro, Oct. 18-20) Initially I was miffed at Elle for covering up Melissa’s body in a voluminous coat. If I hadn’t already read that she was on the cover, I wouldn’t have recognized her. Then I recalled a previous interview where Melissa admitted to wanting to “magically” be smaller and that she didn’t know why she’s at her current size despite daily tennis lessons and Pilates and eating healthy foods. Also, she said nothing when sizeacceptance activists were unhappy with her being the only of the “Bridesmaids” in sleeves while her costars were sleeveless. As much as I’d love to believe that she’s a proud and confident fat woman, Melissa is

apparently not happy with her body. It seems like she’s more resigned to her size rather than embracing it. I hope she learns to truly love the image in the mirror. Not only is she immensely talented, she’s also gorgeous. EMILY DOMINGUEZ, VIA EMAIL

The inflation of ignorance of economics Re: ‘Ignorance is bliss’ (Metro, Oct. 17) David Snieckus must be a very happy man. There is a reason government does not print all the money it needs.

Lifeless Eagles fall to ’Boys in battle for first NFL. Birds lose Nick Foles and ďŹ rst place in 17-3 loss yesterday to the hated Dallas Cowboys.

just 55 yards on 18 carries. And Foles, who left late in the third quarter with a head injury, was off on almost every throw he attempted. The quarterback went 11-of-29 for 80 yards (46.2 rating). “He was off,� coach Chip Kelly said. “At times, we had guys open and we didn’t put the ball on him. But there were other times where we didn’t help him either.� Foles left the game after his head hit the turf following a sack. It was a play that never should have happened, since Foles had plenty of time to throw it away. With Mike Vick inactive, rookie Matt Barkley was thrust into the spotlight. He threw three picks. “Matt got put in a tough situation,� Kelly said. “We were throwing every down.� Barkley admitted he couldn’t give a fair assessment of his performance. “I think it would be a bit biased,� he said. “I am feeling a little negative, given the situation. I will look at the tape and review it, but you can always improve.�

Someone needs to file a missing person’s report for the Eagles’ offense. Maybe the unit never boarded the plane back from Tampa Bay. One week after shredding the Buccaneers, thanks to an award-winning performance from Nick Foles, the Birds seemed stuck in neutral. They couldn’t run. They couldn’t throw. Even LeSean McCoy couldn’t break one into the secondary in a lifeless 17-3 loss yesterday at the Linc. Fans were streaming for the exits with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. “Any time our defense plays that well, we should win,� center Jason Kelce said. “That’s about as bad as it gets for an offense.� Starting up front with Kelce and the offensive line, the entire unit looked like it was pushing a rusted wheelbarrow. McCoy finished with

MCW shooting for Rookie of the Year NBA. Sixers rookie point guard Michael CarterWilliams has set high goals for himself this season. Michael Carter-Williams didn’t mince words. He realizes the challenge in being a rookie point guard for a rebuilding team. Still, the former Syracuse standout wants to be the best. “I’d like to be the Rookie of the Year,� Carter-Williams said. Really? “Yes, absolutely,� he said. “I think you always shoot for the highest mark and go for it.� When the Sixers traded Jrue Holiday and draft-

ed Carter-Williams with the 11th overall pick, it was a sign that the team was moving in a new direction. Carter-Williams was thrilled to be selected, but he’s not taking anything for granted. “You’re not given anything, especially in the NBA,� Carter-Williams said. “You have to earn

everything. Hopefully, I’ll be in the starting lineup. To make that happen, it’s going to take hard work and preparation. There are no days off. You have to bring energy every day and I know that.� Carter-Williams helped guide the Orange to the Final Four last year before losing to Michigan

in the national semifinals. Since the Sixers are in a rebuilding phase, patience is required. “I don’t like losing, none of us do,� he said. “We’re going to fight and scrap and claw every game for this franchise. I think we will surprise people. The main thing is to keep working, listen to the coaches and continue to improve as much as possible every day.� The biggest difference between college and the pros is the length of the season, an 82-game grind. “I love basketball, and I’m blessed to be in this situation,� he said. “I will ask questions, do whatever I have to in order to stay sharp.�

Chiefs 17, Texans 16 Andy Reid’s Chiefs are still perfect. Tamba Hali’s strip on Houston quarterback Case Keenum with less than two minutes remaining sealed it up. Derrick Johnson recovered the fumble and Kansas City (7-0) ran the clock out. Jamaal Charles rumbled for 86 yards and a touchdown. This is the Chiefs’ best start since 2003.

Jets 30, Patriots 27 (OT) Nick Folk’s controversial 42-yard field goal handed the Jets a shocking upset win in overtime. After missing on his initial attempt, the refs threw a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. The penalty was called on New England’s Chris Jones for pushing a teammate into the opponents’ formation. The result was a 15-yard penalty and a second chance for Folk, and the kicker drilled it through.

Shane Victorino etched his name in Boston sports lore Saturday night. / GETTY IMAGES

Victorino gives the Red Sox true grit MLB. Former Phillie helped get Boston back to the World Series at the plate and in the field. Following the blockbuster trade with the Dodgers last August, GM Ben Cherington had extra money to spend in the offseason in order to rebuild the Red Sox. One of the players the Red Sox signed was Shane Victorino, who inked a three-year, $39 million deal. A deal that was heavily criticized at the time,

Victorino has earned his $13 million this year, especially after clobbering the go-ahead grand slam Saturday night that landed Boston in the World Series. “It was a special moment,” Victorino said Saturday after hitting the grand slam. “It’s been a special year, we battled, and good moments like this, you cherish it.” Victorino, once the heart and soul of Charlie Manuel’s Phillies, wasted no time fitting in. He was arguably the best defensive right fielder in baseball, going along with a .294 average and .351 onbase percentage. “He added an elite

defender in right field,” manager John Farrell said. “The numbers bear that out. Depending on what measurements you want to use, he’s been probably the best right fielder defensively in baseball this year. He’s added a grit to this team that we’ve seen repeatedly with the pain threshold in which he’s played with.” Despite nagging hamstring and back injuries, Victorino didn’t miss much time. He played in 122 games and didn’t change his style, continuing to run into walls and slide hard into every base. Coming off a sub-par 2012 (.255/.321/.383), he rebounded this season. He also provides experience, having won a World Series with the Phils in 2008.
