Tax breaks approved for Center City hotel Chestnut and 15th. The new hotel will receive the largest tax break given to a hotel in city history. After 20 years of serving as a parking lot, the prime location at 15th and Chestnut streets in Center City will finally be developed. At the last City Council meeting before its Christmas break, two roadblocks were cleared: Council members approved $33

million in tax breaks for the $280 million hotel project, and the developers struck a deal with union representatives on a peace agreement. The two hotels — W and Element — will rise 50 stories on a half-acre swath that was occupied by a high-rise office building that burned down in 1991. After an hour-and40-minute recess, during which union officials and developers hammered out an agreement, City Council approved the tax breaks, which was the only factor keeping the project from

moving forward. Only one council member, Wilson Goode Jr., did

not vote in favor of the tax benefits. “I’m not against the project, I’m against the funding for this project,” Goode said. “The project needs public financing, but doesn’t necessarily need tax abatement financing.” Hotel developer Brook Lenfest, son of billionaire turned philanthropist H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest, said he was prepared to walk away from the project if it wasn’t voted on at the last council meeting. “We expect in the next few months to break ground,” Lenfest said.

Breakdown Lenfest and his partner Jeffrey Cohen secured $40 million in other public financing. •

The investors plan to pay the remaining $205 million by securing their own loans.

The hotel will take about three years to complete.

Philly will get its land bank. City Council approved the bill, which will act as a clearinghouse for the 10,000 city-owned pieces out of the 40,000 vacant pieces of land within the city limits, at its last meeting before the new year Thursday. And it ensures this city will be the largest in the country with a land bank. Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez, who has fought for this bill even before she first took office in 2007, said she will continue to broaden the conversation. “I think that every community, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood, needs to be informed and educated about this new tool,” she said.

Quoted

“The land bank will make it easier and quicker for individuals ... to turn vacant, blighted properties into vibrant, usable spaces.” Rick Sauer Executive director of the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations

Sanchez was at odds with Council President Darrell Clarke over Clarke’s insistence that deals be approved by City Council before sales become final. Eventually Clarke won, as a supervisory committee will approve any purchases. TOMMY ROWAN

Airport workers celebrate win for minimum wage Join the party. PHL subcontractors think the same can come to them in May. A personal story Nikisha Watson, of West Philadelphia, cleans planes at the airport and makes $8.50/hr. She previously made $5.25 as a wheelchair attendant. •

“Most of the contractors pay as little as they possibly can,” she said.

Philadelphia airport workers will celebrate at City Hall on Friday a historic win for low-wage airport workers in Washington and call on Philadelphia to be the next city to raise wages. The workers, to be joined by local faith and community groups, are back to fight for their wages after SeaTac, Wash., residents voted to grant the highest minimum wage for airport workers there. Philadelphia airport subcontractors are hopeful the Washington decision helps May’s referendum in the city to increase the subcontractors’ wages

to the same as area contractors. “It’s very exciting for us to see SeaTac is changing their minimum wage to really what we would consider a living wage,” said Pati Krasensky, speaking on behalf of Philadelphians Organizing to Witness Empower and Rebuild (POWER), a group dedicated to bringing justice to the people of Philadelphia. “What this does is bring it into the news in a different way.”

Pro-Clinton. Democrats highlight Christie in New Jersey skirmish A Democratic group with ties to Hillary Clinton has launched a campaign attacking New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie over a political flap in his home state in an early skirmish between the two likely contenders in the 2016 presidential race. The group, Correct the Record, is promoting a graphic on social media sites Twitter and Facebook depicting Christie at the George Washington Bridge with traffic signs that read “Political Retribution” and “Lanes Closed. Expect Christie?” The group said on Thursday it aims to put a national face on a local controversy that began in September, when two out of three local on-ramps to the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey were inexplicably closed in the

town of Fort Lee. The closings snarled traffic and angered New York City-bound commuters who use the bridge, the busiest span in the nation. The lanes were re-opened after several days. New Jersey Democrats contend the lane closures were ordered by Christie supporters at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the region’s transportation facilities. REUTERS

Backlash. Probation for DWI teen who killed four in Texas A decision by a Texas judge this week to give an affluent teenager probation after he killed four people while driving drunk has sparked a backlash and complaints of a miscarriage of justice. State District Judge Jean Boyd on Tuesday sentenced the 16-year-old boy to 10 years probation and ordered him to get therapy. The teen was driving a pickup truck when he ran down four people who were helping fix a vehicle along the roadside in the Fort Worth area. A psychologist for the defense said the teen suf-

fered from “affluenza,” a condition in which a person feels shielded from problems by money, having led a life of privilege paid for by his parents, local media reported. The four people killed in the June incident were Breanna Mitchell, whose car broke down, Hollie and Shelby Boyles, who lived nearby and came out to help and youth minister Brian Jennings, who stopped to help, the Fort Worth Star Telegram reported. The paper has been flooded with comments on the sentence, almost all of which were critical of the judge. REUTERS

“It is a slap in the face to people who rely on the justice system and just reinforces the idea that the best defense is loads of money.” Shirley Watson Wrote in a comment to the paper on Thursday

COMPROMISE? NOT ME

To hear the big players in D.C. talk, no matter which party badge they wear, you would think that bipartisanship was the greatest thing for improving relationships since Viagra. Watch what they do, however, and you’ll notice what many like in theory, they despise in practice. Case in point: The deal pushed forward by the House Budget Committee Chair Republican Paul Ryan, and Senate Democrat Patty Murray. Despite the fact that bitter budget debates have been rocking Washington for many months, these two hammered out an agreement to kill the threat of another government shutdown next year, and more or less stabilize the budget into 2015. To make it work, each major party would gain something it wanted, and each would give

To make it work, each major party would gain something it wanted, and each would give up something. up something. In other words, it was a classic compromise. And yet, almost before the two could finish saying, “We have an agreement!” stalwarts on both sides were lighting torches, rallying their mobs and storming Capitol Hill in protest — at least figuratively. For the record, I’m not writing here in favor of or against the deal That’s not my job. And I recognize that any plan can face legitimate opposition. But it is painfully clear that some

folks on each side of the budget debate are ready to oppose any plan that gives the other side any concession. Even many of those who supported this budget idea made a great display of holding their noses. And if they offered any “praise,” it mostly ran along the lines of that old joke: “You know, for a heavy girl, you don’t sweat much!” None of this should be surprising. The climate in D.C. has been increasingly poisonous for years. The gap between the left and right has grown wider. And extremists on both sides will attack members of their own party at the first sign of moderate thought. Because they are engaged in a great political war — and despite all their words about bipartisanship, what they really want is not cooperation but capitulation.

U.S. wireless carriers will make it easier for consumers to “unlock” their mobile phones for use on a competitor’s network, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said on Thursday. Wheeler told members of Congress an agreement was reached between the carriers and the agency. Industry sources have said the agreement would ensure that providers notify customers about the eligibility of their phones for unlocking -- by text message, for example -- and could also cover some prepaid phones. The deal would also re-

quire carriers to process or deny unlocking requests within two business days, according to FCC’s earlier guidance. The new deal would assure consumers that they could get their phones “unlocked” at the end of their contract and make the process more uniform among carriers. The final sticking points in reaching the agreement were said to include questions on how fast the new policy would be rolled out and how pre-paid phones would be handled. REUTERS Change What changed in 2013 was an unexpected ruling from the Library of Congress, which oversees U.S. copyright law and reviews exemptions every three years, that effectively made unlocking illegal.

and was due to see Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday. Israel and the Palestinians resumed direct peace negotiations in July after a three-year break, hoping to end their decadesold conflict within nine months. However, there has been little public sign of progress, with both sides accusing the other of dragging their feet.

Kerry has said he presented Israel and the Palestinians last week with “some thoughts� on security arrangements in any future accord, but has given no details. A Palestinian source said the security proposal outlined an Israeli military presence in the Jordan Valley, which is in the occupied West Bank, for 10 years. Abbas rejected the idea. Looking to win him over, retired U.S. Gen. John Allen, who has been working on possible solutions to allay Israeli security concerns, was due to join Kerry in the West Bank city of Ramallah for the meeting with the Palestinian leader.

SANDY HOOK: ONE YEAR LATER

In the news

Newtown sparks nationwide gun debate The massacre in Newtown did not just send the nation into mourning, but also ignited a heated national debate on the country’s gun laws and inspired a package of national gun control measures in Congress, as well as calls for better security in schools. The bills, which included a national ban on assault weapons and expanding the use of background checks for gun purchases, were ultimately rejected after U.S. lawmakers decided they might infringe on the constitutional right to bear arms. The onus now seems to have shifted to individual states, where both guncontrol and gunrights advocates have notched wins. Electoral and legislative fights since Newtown — including the election last month of a Democratic gun-control supporter, Terry McAuliffe, as governor of Virginia, the home state of the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby — are likely a foretaste of battles to come next year in federal and state elections.

1,500 In response to the Newtown massacre and the 2012 shooting deaths of 12 people in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, about 1,500 pieces of gun legislation were introduced in U.S. state legislatures, according to the National Institute for Money in State Politics in Helena, Mont. Only about 10 percent of them were passed, with a slight edge for gun-rights bills.

On Dec. 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who had grown up in Newtown, Conn., killed his mother before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he shot and killed 20 children and six adults with an automatic rifle. He then turned the gun on himself. As the one-year anniversary of one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history approached, Metro sat down with three parents whose lives were forever changed by the tragedy that shook the nation.

Scarlett Lewis. After losing her son, she has chosen to live her life by his final message Jesse Lewis, 6, saved his classmates by shouting “Run!” the day a lone gunman walked into his classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It was an act of heroism that cost the young child his life. His mother, Scarlett Lewis, has kept his memory alive at home. The walls are lined with paintings and smiling photos, letters, stuffed animals and quilts. Jesse’s favorite rubber ducks are everywhere, and his easel is in the attic, frozen in time with an unfinished painting. Lewis said she gets messages from her son every day — sometimes it’s as slight as hearing a song by Jesse’s favorite band, Maroon 5. Other times, she said, it’s as miraculous as when Lewis and her older son, J.T., looked up and saw “jesse + jesus together forever” in skywriting during a trip to Florida. Lewis said that she decided her son’s death would bring her purpose. “I made a conscious choice,” she said firmly. “Adam Lanza killed Jesse, but he did not kill J.T. and myself.” Lewis took refuge at her mother’s house

immediately after Jesse’s death, but when she returned home she found a note from Jesse on the chalkboard that she hadn’t noticed before: “Nurturing, healing, love.” The message, in a 6-year-old’s handwriting and spelling, remains untouched — Lewis covered it with a piece of glass. It also prompted Lewis to write a book about her experience, “Nurturing, Healing, Love: A Mother’s Journey of Hope and Forgiveness,” and start the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation. She said her trauma has been healed, but “reality is just sinking in” and she still experiences a state of shock a couple of times a week. “His spirit is with me, but the hardest thing is missing his physical body,” she said, her voice cracking.

Mark Barden, a jazz composer and guitarist, hasn’t been able to write music since his son Daniel died in last year’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. Instead, he finds solace in spending time with his two surviving children, James, 13, and Natalie, 11. “I bask in my kids — I just bask in them,” he said. Barden said his children have been incredibly strong since the tragedy that claimed their little brother’s life. “When [my wife] Jackie and I have our breakdowns, they come right to us with compassion and empathy,” he said. The holiday season is especially tough for Barden. He recalled the time Natalie brought home eggnog — a drink at the center of many family traditions and memories. “I said, ‘It reminds me too much of last year — I just can’t,’ and she said, ‘I know. I understand.’” He recalls teaching Daniel to play “Jingle Bells” on the piano the very morning of the shooting and can still remember Daniel’s reaction to the song “The Christmas Shoes” during a car ride. “I look in the mirror

and see Daniel looking out the window with tears rolling down his cheeks. That’s the depth of his empathy right there.” Through it all, Barden said he has found his calling, which is working with the Sandy Hook Foundation to teach people to “parent together” and open a dialogue about gun safety and mental health. He said Daniel, who always reached out to outcasts and new kids, inspires him to pursue his mission. Through Sandy Hook Promise, Barden hopes to help community leaders and teachers identify at-risk children and address their needs. Of gunman Adam Lanza, Barden said, “The sad connection I can’t help thinking is this individual who ... killed all these little first-graders was the kid who sat alone.”

Ian Hockley. He turned to advocacy for other autistic kids since his son’s death More than anything, Ian Hockley misses hearing his son Dylan’s laugh. “He would laugh at anything, and if he was upset or having a tantrum, you could just tickle him and he’d laugh,” Hockley told Metro. Six-year-old Dylan, who was autistic, was hugging his aide Anne Marie Murphy when they were both shot and killed at Sandy Hook on Dec. 14 of last year. As the anniversary of his son’s death approaches, Hockley holds his fondest memories tightly. Dylan loved jumping on the trampoline over and over again, laughing all the while, he recalled. “If we were on the trampoline, we had to bounce and play until he was giddy and ready to be sick,” Hockley said. He described the past year as a roller coaster since losing his son. “Sometimes it’s down and sometimes it’s back up,” Hockley said, adding that, unfortunately, the downs haven’t gotten easier. “Sometimes it’s worse, because in the first few months you have shock to protect you. But you also

DYLAN HOCKLEY

learn to deal with it and get back up quicker.” He has been working through his grief with Dylan’s Wings of Change, a nonprofit dedicated to autism awareness and supporting autistic children through technology and athletic activities. “We saw how Dylan was progressing and we said, ‘Let’s do the same for other kids,’” Hockley said.   He described an outpouring of support, which he said has helped his family wade through the tragedy — a day-to-day process, especially for his surviving son, Jake. His advice? “In one hand, you have this massive pain, and in the other hand you can collect wonderful things and friends.”

Timeline: Mass shootings 2012-2013 Horrific incidents like the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting put a renewed spotlight on gun violence, but dozens of American lives have been claimed in mass shootings since 2000, many of which involved the use of semiautomatic weapons. Metro compiled a list of some, but not nearly all, of the highly

publicized shootings in the U.S. involving a lone gunman that claimed at least four lives. •

July 20, 2012 - Aurora, Colo.: James Holmes, 25, shot and killed 12 people in a movie theater during the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” using several weapons, including a semi-

automatic rifle. •

Aug. 5, 2012 - Oak Creek, Wis.: Wade Michael Page, 40, killed four people with a semiautomatic weapon inside a Sikh temple before turning the gun on himself. Dec. 14, 2012 - Newtown, Conn.: Adam Lanza, 20,

shot and killed his mother and 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School before taking his own life. •

Sept. 16, 2013 Washington, D.C.: Aaron Alexis, 34, shot and killed 12 people inside the Washington Navy Yard with a 12-gauge shotgun before

he was shot and killed by police. •

June 7, 2013 - Santa Monica, Calif.: John Zawahri, 23, opened fire in a home and later on the campus of Santa Monica College, killing five people with a semiautomatic rifle. He was killed during a

shoot-out with police. •

July 26, 2013 - Hialeah, Fla.: Pedro Alberto Vargas, 42, shot and killed six people with a semiautomatic weapon in his apartment complex before setting fire to his own apartment. He was shot and killed by a SWAT team.

But for Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the dragon Smaug (including voice and motion capture — he also pulled double duty as the Necromancer), he was there for barely more than a week. “That was the biggest con of doing this. After hearing all these stories of the live action harrowingness, and all the amazing work these people put in, I did my work in about eight days,� Cumberbatch says. “I feel like I’m the cheat at the table, really.� On top of that, while the bulk of his screen time is spent sparring with his “Sherlock� co-star, Martin Freeman, as titular hobbit Bilbo Baggins, they weren’t actually present for any of each other’s performances. “I didn’t spend any sort of live time with Martin, which was sad,� he says. “We know each other quite well, so we kind of second guessed in a weird way our performances to some degree.

Last year, as the first “Hobbit” installment raked in more than $1 billion worldwide, Welsh actor Luke Evans sat quietly by as Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage got all the attention, since his work as Bard the Bowman wouldn’t turn up until the second film, “The Desolation of Smaug.” Well, Evans has to wait no longer. After three “Lord of the Rings” films and the first “Hobbit,” it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that New Zealand is a beautiful place, isn’t it? Yeah, I think we need to just give up now. We all know this. Maybe we should just say, “Actually, it’s a s---hole.” [Laughs] No, it’s great. The Kiwis, they’re very proud of their country and how they’ve preserved it in a really beautiful way, especially the South Island. It’s so unspoiled. You drive down certain roads in these mountains and you’re just waiting for a pterodactyl to fly off around the corner. You filmed your part before even the first

“Hobbit” had come out. What was it like last year watching the reactions for that one, knowing that to audiences you still weren’t quite a part of it?

That’s the fun thing about being part of something as big as “The Hobbit,” things like that happen. Apparently Denny’s, the diner, has a whole Lake-town menu. It has, like, the Bard’s Brew and the Bowman’s Pumpkin Pie. I’m tempted to go down there and order it all and just sit there munching through a Denny’s breakfast.

Killing them softly in space Sci-fi schlock. “The Last Days on Mars” picks off its terrific cast one by one. It has been an illuminating year for outside-the-box sci-fi. “Gravity” and the tinier “Europa Report” — filmed entirely in a warehouse in Brooklyn — stretched the boundaries of the genre, giving us the illusion of the new while playing with the familiar. And yet, in the face of so much quality, a purely schlocky number like “The Last Days on Mars” should be perversely welcome. Yet even with its modest ambitions it’s still not enough. Liev Schreiber plays one of the crew members on a six-month mission to Mars. Much like the cop who eats it on the day before retirement, it’s in the last several hours of their stint that the crew is besieged by a deadly virus that kills its prey, then turns them into zombies.

Olivia Williams is magnificently ticked off in “The Last Days on Mars.” / MAGNOLIA PICTURES

Worse, it’s not even the good, “Night of the Living Dead” kind; it’s the crappy, fast, aggressive kind. Every last bit of “The Last Days on Mars” is reheated. Rehashing is not in itself a crime, and there’s a stretch, when the virus first breaks loose, that’s genuinely hairy and nailbiting. Perhaps it’s not ideal that one of the most likable characters dies

early, but that does raise the stakes. No one (or, at least, no good actor) is safe. And there are some great actors. Tom Cullen (“Weekend”) and Elias Koteas bring pathos to stock characters. Olivia Williams further reinforces the theory, as demonstrated in “The Ghost Writer,” that there’s no one more electric onscreen at playing royally ticked-

Interview

Richard Armitage gets soaked As Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the 13-dwarf team out to best a dragon and return his people to their homeland, Richard Armitage has his work cut out for him in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” But the British actor probably wasn’t expecting that work to be quite so harrowing, like the elaborate action sequence involving the dwarfs riding in barrels down a raging river. “I think the most dangerous part of filming the barrel sequence was when we were in these little cut-off ‘Flintstones’style barrels which were powered by our feet,” Armitage says. “It came

together in quite a few different places on the Pelorus River, which was an extremely fast-flowing river. I did end up getting dragged under by that current.” And if the forces of nature trying to drown him weren’t enough, he also had director Peter Jackson’s best technicians trying their hands at it as well. “We went into a soundstage where Pete had built a kind of water course powered by two V8 engines. It was like being at a theme park for two weeks,” he remembers. “They were dumping tons of water on us and trying to get us to go under the water. But I think it was worth it.” NED EHRBAR

Watching what Peter Jackson has done to J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” — a nice, sprightly lark that doesn’t break 300 pages, now hubristically supersized into three, threehour films — may lead to Stockholm Syndrome. The second installment, “The Desolation of Smaug,” is easier to take than the first. That’s not due to any particular thing it does; it’s simply because the shock of Jackson’s crimes have worn off. One is allowed to sit back and accept that this will be a trilogy with just a bunch of mildly diverting, often seemingly purposeless loud and clangy stuff. But not all is gloomy.

Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor, from “12 Years a Slave,” are among the Golden Globe nominees. / FOX SEARCHLIGHT

The Golden Globes get a little crowded Movies. A packed year salutes “12 Years a Slave” but forgets about Oprah. Awards season is officially here, thanks to the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations, and the best word to describe this year’s crop is “crowded.” It’s so crowded, in fact, that some heavy-hitters have been almost completely left out. Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” is still considered the lead favorite, with nominations for the film itself; McQueen; stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o; screenwriter John Ridley; and composer Hans Zimmer. At least McQueen doesn’t have to worry about David O. Russell’s nominationheavy “American Hustle”

A lighter side?

That’s not funny The Globes are earning more than the usual amount of criticism this year for its Musical or Comedy film categories not really honoring musicals or comedy. The five films filling the top category — “American Hustle,” “Nebraska,” “Her,” “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” — shouldn’t really be considered comedies, critics are arguing. Producers have been criticized in the past for positioning serious fare in the comedy category to increase a film’s chances, but this year it seems dramas have completely dominated, at the expense of actual yukfests like “The World’s End.”

until the Oscars, as the Hollywood Foreign Press have placed it in the Musical or Comedy category (see sidebar). Though it earned several nominations earlier in the week from the Screen Actors Guild, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” didn’t garner a mention — not even for Oprah Winfrey, despite the organization’s starstruck reputation. And while Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” nabbed nominations for the film and star Leonardo DiCaprio, it didn’t make the cut in any other major category. Sorry, Scorsese. They also snubbed “Mad Men,” “Game of Thrones” and “Homeland.” The Golden Globes will be awarded on Jan. 12, four days before the Academy Award nominations are announced.

Hip-hop grows up Showstoppa. Philly Hip-Hop Awards pays tribute to the local legends and the newcomers, too. K-Dot Da Showstoppa will perform. / PHILLY HIP-HOP AWARDS

Welcome to the new frontier of Philly hip-hop. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the word from organizers of the 2013 Philly Hip-Hop Awards, which will take place Dec. 15 at TLA on South Street. In other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer acceptable to climb up on stage, spit eight bars and drop the mic. Rappers now have to come with a performance, says event chair Sonya McDuffie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scene is turning over and the talent level is definitely very up right now,â&#x20AC;? McDuffie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Audiences are more discriminating about how they spend their dollars.â&#x20AC;?

The awards night will include tributes to city heritage artists like Schoolly D, E.S.T. and Major Figgas, and performances from multi-talented new blood, including K-Dot Da Showstoppa, the bearded bard of the streets, and Asia

Philly native Asia Sparks, in red, is making a name for herself in the local music scene. / PROVIDED

Sparks, who has stamina, smarts and sex appeal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showstoppa, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hardcore street rapper but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly entertaining. He understands showmanship,â&#x20AC;? McDuffie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Asia Sparks, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to love her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already on BET, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very much an artist youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear about going national. Catch her now before that happens.â&#x20AC;? The crew at Urban Ce-

lebrity magazine has their ears to the ground and their eyes on the stars. Led by Jimmy DaSaint, they produce several shows a year; this is their third year putting on the Philly Hip-Hop Awards, which has been around in various forms since 1999.

‘Lilyhammer’ Steven Van Zandt plays yet another mobster in this Netflix original series, which he also produced and wrote. This time around, the E Street Band guitarist isn’t playing second fiddle to a Tony Soprano-type — he’s a boss in his own right, albeit one hiding out in Norway to escape some pesky mafia troubles. The second season premieres tonight, in full. (Check out our interview with Van Zandt at www.metro.us/ entertainment!) SEASON

Vienna Boys Choir visit Philadelphia Heavenly. Gerald Wirth, artistic director of the prestigious choir, dishes on touring. The Vienna Boys Choir, consisting of 100 singers between 10 and 14 years old, breaks down into four groups that each travel up to 11 weeks of the year. And on Saturday, the illustrious group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whose origins date back to the Middle Ages â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be right here in Glenside at the Keswick Theatre (291 N. Keswick Ave.) at 4 p.m. We caught up with Artistic Director and President Gerald Wirth, who has extensive insight: Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only an alum of the choir himself, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been a conductor and one of the teachers. What will you be singing? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll perform a variety [of songs] from all different centuries â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some traditional European Austrian songs and some more popular ones: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Be Home for Christmas,â&#x20AC;? for example, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silver Bellsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Feliz Navidad.â&#x20AC;? In the first half, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mix including compositions from Viennese composers. At the end of the first half, we do â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank You for the Musicâ&#x20AC;? by ABBA. The second half will all be Christmas songs from different

backgrounds. I hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring to the concert what the audience expects: good music, interesting music, music that touches people. How does the choir enjoy downtime on the road? We hope to show the boys some of the [local tourist attractions]. ... And boys will be boys, they need to goof around, they need time to play. Sports is very important in our organization. Many of the boys take soccer more seriously than music. We work with management organizations who are very aware of the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs to find an indoor gymnasium or soccer field. Do they feel pressure from the choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestige? I talk to the boys regularly to make them aware of the same steps theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve walked on â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all the great, wonderful artists of the last 500 years, like [Joseph] Haydn. We have the honor to step in their footsteps, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a big challenge to ... continue with this tradition and pass it on to future generations. What type of traditions? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to still perform songs from the European region. A high percentage of our audience might prefer popular music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to do those tunes, and the boys love it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to maintain the tradition from our region.

Bonus question

How do they prepare? When the boys are in Vienna, they attend normal school. ... We divide a school season into three parts, and each choir spends two-thirds of the school year here in Vienna and one-third touring around the world.

Catch them performing Saturday at the Keswick Theatre (www.keswicktheatre.com).

What happens when you give a baked goods scientist like Momofuku Milk Bar’s wildly creative chef, owner and founder Christina Tosi a bottle of bubbly and cookie dough? (She is, after all, the woman who invented Cereal Milk and Crack Pie.) You get Sparkle Cookies! “I always make cookiecutter cookies over holidays,” says the award-winning baker, “and I always go, ‘How can I reinvent it? How can I challenge what it is?’” To riff on the classic this season, she focused on the icing. “Instead of using water, milk or egg whites to bind the icing together we used Blanc de Noirs from Chandon — it’s such a fruit-forward wine that it brings out this amazing zest and punch in the icing,” she says, adding, “I’ve actually been sneaking that icing. I have a big bowl of it and I’ll drizzle it on pound cake, bread, frozen peaches, anything.”

Roll up your sleeves How great is it to be in Tosi’s inner circle? Every year the chef creates cookie samplers to bring over to holiday parties and packages up tins of sweet treats for loved ones. We won’t even get into the batch of cinnamon buns she whips up for Christmas morning. Inspired to spread the baked goods love? Tosi offers these tips. •

“Starting with good butter is the most important part in the baking process, no matter what it is you are baking this holiday season. Use an unsalted European-style butter.”

• “Have a few staple items that highlight your personality. I like to use ground coffee. It’s always a little bit of a surprise and it adds a great texture.” • “A lot of times during the holidays people go

the walnut or pecan route, but I really love using pistachios. They are incredibly colorful and they have this great fruity, nutty ability.” • “Don’t be afraid to use herbs in baked goods. It’s the one time that you can really get away with giving intense, warm herbaceous flavors, because it’s cold out.” • “Spend extra time on packaging. I’m really funny about presentation. I’m not incredibly fussy — it’s not about it being pristine — but I think that thoughtfulness on how you package something really goes a long way. I get all of my packaging supplies on ULine.com. You can buy tins and jars in various sizes and [the site] gives you really great bulk discounts.”

Kanye West got totally pwned Today, a middle-aged police officer in middle America has won the Internet. Well, in my opinion at least. Ohio police chief David Oliver has penned an open letter to Kanye West (on his departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page) and, um, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairly epic. Oliver, incensed by Yeezyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent comments comparing himself to soldiers and cops (I mean, this is a dude who legitimately thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some sort of hip-hop holy figure, so, I feel like a law enforcement comparison is pretty tame) took to the Internet to let the high-art genius (who may or may not be the Second Coming of Christ and also Steve Jobs) know exactly how he felt. In the letter, which is laced with enough snarky vitriol to give Morrisseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent (awesome) rant about the British Royals a run for its Internet-rage money, Oliver invites Ye to leave the rap game and join the Army: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck.â&#x20AC;? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing though â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is not a scenario that would seem unreasonable to Kanye West. Kanye West thinks that Kim Kardashian deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kanye West also thinks that Kim Kardashian is a smart cookie. Kanye West thinks thoughts that other people think are crazy. Still, the idea of some

Kevinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expanding Federlineage busboy? Anyway, the man who once boned Britney Spears is now boning new wife Victoria Prince â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who, according to a cursory Google search, seems like an attractive, fairly normal person. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pregnant with her second child, which will be K-Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth. (Remember â&#x20AC;&#x153;K-Fedâ&#x20AC;? used to be a totally relevant thing, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Puff Daddyâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;the other two girls who used to sing near Beyonce.â&#x20AC;?) Federline has two kids with Spears, two with Shar Jackson (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too lazy to Google her, but I think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a D-list personality who was famous for five minutes for being the woman who boned the man who boned Spears?) and one with Prince.

Six kids from three different women â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some tricky math for a guy who Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count past 10. Kevin Federline (the dude who got kind of famous for five minutes for boning Britney Spears and may or may not have been the catalyst for her epic breakdown, which may or may not have served as the blueprint for Amanda Bynesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; even more epic breakdown) is going to be a dad.

This actually made me feel a little sad (as sad as one can feel on behalf of two people one has never met and will never meet) because they seem like notannoying people. The two met on the set of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rentâ&#x20AC;? in the 1990s and wed in 2003. And now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re separating. Ah well, at least we still have Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.

How to play Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

President should be political, not polite Re: ‘Obama can do nothing right’ (Metro, Dec. 12) Mr. Fowler, I don’t care much about the cell phone picture, but this was not a mere handshake. In international politics, this means a lot. It is shameful and disgusting that the U.S. president has chosen to routinely shake hands with one of the world’s most brutal dictators. Yes it was treasonous, and also completely unnecessary. Maybe you should talk to some of the Cuban Americans about the brutality of that regime and see why they may feel betrayed.

Don’t blame the cops Re: ‘Not the cops’ finest hour’ (Metro, Dec. 11) I’m tired of teenagers and young adults terrorizing our streets and using their illegally obtained firearms for their own personal “justice.” Stop the violence! End gang violence in our communities. Parents are out of touch with their teenagers and let them roam free and do not acknowledge their wrongdoings. The teenagers out there are completely out of touch with reality and how to behave like civilized humans. TIM MALLOY, VIA EMAIL

Foles, Eagles buying in to Kelly’s fitness focus NFL. The Eagles players say they are feeling as good as they have ever felt this late into the regular season. This issue of sports science just won’t go away. It’s here to stay, as a talking point, from now until head coach Chip Kelly’s team runs out of gas. The latter doesn’t seem likely — not after the Eagles reeled off five straight wins, not after nonchalantly throwing up 34 second-half points in a blizzard and not after turning a bashful Nick Foles into a household name. “I have a lot of flaws in my game that I understand,” said Foles, who graces the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated magazine. “I’ve got to make those better every day. If I can get one hundredth of a percent better each day, that’ll eventually add up in the percent.” Foles is a humble kid from Texas that has bought into Kelly’s system — and what a system. The former Oregon coach took over a mess of

DeSean Jackson said he was initially unhappy with the added work instituted by Chip Kelly, but says it has definitely paid off during this five-game winning streak. / GETTY IMAGES Injury report The Eagles added corner Cary Williams to the injury report Thursday with a hamstring injury.

a team coming off a 4-12 nightmare. One of the first changes Kelly made was adding an extra day of practice. The coach informed his players they must come in on Tuesdays, a day traditionally reserved as a day of rest across the NFL. At first, the move was met with moaning and groaning in the Ea-

gles’ locker room. “I never really liked it, but you gotta buy in,” said receiver DeSean Jackson. “That’s one of the things you gotta do … professional athlete, you gotta adjust on the run. Here we are in December and I think it’s definitely helping us out. I don’t know, man, we’re just fresh.” Kelly has seemingly changed the entire culture, not with his playcalling — although that has been crucial in the turnaround as well — but with his focus on health, such as achieving optimal heart rate and getting enough rest. The Eagles look just as fresh, maybe fresher, than they did after that wild Week 1 in Washington. “I think our players have taken care of themselves and really understand what we’re trying to get accomplished, and I think it showed,” Kelly said. “But I don’t think it’s because it’s December. I think it showed earlier in the year, too. I watch our players each week, and I believe we’re fresh when we go play games on Sundays.”

Eagles-Vikings: What to watch for NFL. The Vikings don’t look like a tough matchup on paper as the Eagles look to keep on a winning streak. The Vikings are a beatup team with questions at quarterback and running back. But a trip to the Metrodome is never easy for any team. The Eagles minded what they said throughout the week about the 3-9-1 Vikings, who have long since been eliminated from playoff contention. Metro takes a look at three things to watch for in Sunday’s matchup (1 p.m., FOX):

Pep talk turned pep rally Until last week, the Eagles’ Achilles’ heel had been second-half collapses. They were outscored 23-0 in the fourth quarter and 30-14 in the second half over the two games against Washington and Arizona. Then came Detroit, where the Eagles did a 180-degree turn and outscored the Lions 28-6 in the fourth quarter and 34-12 in the second half — despite atrocious weather conditions. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson credited offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur’s in-game adjustments, not any pep talk from head coach Chip Kelly for the sudden turnaround last week. If the Vikings game is close in the second half, the Eagles will need to remember those words from Shurmur and close out a game that should, by all accounts, be a win.

yards (1,156 in 2009) and has already set a careerhigh for receptions (65). Statistically, Jackson is the fourth-best wideout in the NFC in yards per game — behind only Calvin Johnson, Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. He is fifth in the league in yards

per catch (16.6) among receivers with at least 30 grabs. And his eight touchdowns — one short of tying his career high, also in 2009 — are tied for 11th in the NFL. The Vikings are allowing a miserable 282 yards per game

What about DeSean? Quarterback Nick Foles and running back LeSean McCoy might get all the headlines, but pay attention to Jackson as well. The speedy wide receiver is sitting just 76 yards away from his career high in receiving

receiving — No. 28 in the NFL — so expect Jackson to have plenty of room to run free in the secondary. They’ve also allowed a league-worst 29 passing touchdowns, so expect some career highs to fall.

3

Pie for everyone Shameless plug? Maybe. Ever since 94 WIP radio host, and Metro sports columnist, Angelo Cataldi began delivering homemade pies to the Eagles’ coaching staff, the team is 5-0. It’s for a good cause, too. Cataldi is buying pies from MANNA, an organization that helps feed area people with life-threatening illnesses. Pies of choice this week? Pecan and apple.

NFL. McCoy touts his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;top-3â&#x20AC;&#x2122; talent before facing MVP Peterson Much of the focus on Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matchup with the Vikings is centered on the running back position thanks to a meeting between Adrian Peterson and LeSean McCoy. Peterson is currently questionable with a foot injury, though he says he hopes to play. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no such concern with McCoy, who is coming off the best game of his career against the Lions. McCoy was asked about where he feels he stands among running backs and compared to Peterson, last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFL MVP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the top 5,â&#x20AC;?

Playoff implications across the NFL board NFL. There are several gems on the football slate during “spoiler week.” With the exception of a handful of matchups, Week 15 in the NFL is “spoiler week.” Fourteen of the 16 games on the slate this weekend have playoff implications but the majority of the 14 involve non-playoff teams trying to hurt the postseason chances or the playoff positioning of the league’s

top tier. Here are some of the more important NFL showdowns to watch: Patriots at Dolphins (Sunday, 1 p.m., CBS) The 7-6 Dolphins will likely have to make the playoffs as a wild card as the 10-3 Patriots have all but conquered the AFC East again. The 7-6 Ravens currently own the final playoff spot in the AFC over Miami thanks to a 26-23 win over the ’Fins in Week 5. But Miami has won four of its last six, with wins over the Bengals, Chargers, Jets and

Steelers. The Dolphins also nearly took down the Panthers, so it’s clear they’re peaking at the right time. Packers at Cowboys (Sunday, 4:25 p.m., FOX) It’s put up or shut up time for the 6-6-1 Packers, who are clinging to life in the NFC North. Whether or not Aaron Rodgers factors into Green Bay’s last gasp remains a mystery as he reportedly took snaps with the first-team offense this week at practice but has not yet been medically cleared to play in a game. Tony Romo, meanwhile, is already bombing on the December stage. He threw for just 104 yards in last Monday’s loss to the Bears in Chicago. But this game is in the Jerry Dome, where Dallas has been nearly unbeatable this season. Their lone loss in Arlington this year was that memorable 51-48 shootout against the Broncos. Ravens at Lions (Monday, 8:40 p.m., ESPN) Joe Flacco boosted his “clutch” resume in that wild 29-26 Baltimore win over the Vikings. But it’s not as if Flacco has been lighting the world on fire. He threw three interceptions and had a 64.2 QB

Playoff worthy? A look at several other important games: •

Bengals at Steelers Sunday, 8:30 p.m.

Bears at Browns Sunday, 1 p.m.

Texans at Colts Sunday, 1 p.m.

rating in the win over Minnesota. In fact, Flacco’s had just one game this season in which he’s had a QB rating over 100 (for reference, Ben Roethlisberger has five this season and Peyton Manning has eight).

A look at other MLB happenings as the Winter Meetings came to a close: •

Out of the Phillies’ rotation is a righty who routinely factored into the American League Cy Young race in the latter half of the last decade. In to the Phils’ rotation for 2014 is a righty who was once thought to be a yearly Cy Young candidate in the junior circuit. Roy Halladay is now retired, but it’s Roberto Hernandez who will now look to fill a starting void left behind on the Philadelphia mound. Hernandez finished fourth in the AL Cy Young race back in 2007 (Halladay finished fifth that year) but the Dominican hurler could never regain the magic of that season and his career has been a mixed bag since. Hernandez, who was named Fausto Carmona earlier in his career, was arrested by Dominican police in January 2012 for falsify-
