No more SEPTA strike, but wages still in limbo One day. The 13 Regional Rail lines were silent Saturday as 400 rail workers made a stand for a raise. The SEPTA Regional Rail is back on track, but the two rail workers unions are still fighting for higher wages. The roughly 400 rail
workers — including members of Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers — left their jobs on Saturday, but returned Sunday morning after President Barack Obama appointed an emergency board to try and settle the dispute. Gov. Tom Corbett asked Obama to appoint the board which would bring the workers back and get the trains moving for at

tially a battle over wage increases. SEPTA offered a $3 an hour increase for IBEW, and for BLET, an immediate increase and then another $2.60 per hour pay increase. The rail workers said they want the raises to be retroactive to the expiration of its previous contract in 2010, and an additional 3 percent raise.

Blooming celebration of literary masterwork Heaventree of stars. Book-lovers will celebrate one of the greatest books ever written. For the 23rd year, Philadelphia’s Bloomsday celebration will bring together lovers of literature for an outdoors all-day reading of James Joyce’s “Ulysses.” “The point is to get passersby, just people walking through the city like Leopold Bloom did, to come and see what is happening,” said Emilie Parker, director of education at Rosenbach Library and an organizer of the festivities. “Ulysses,” inspired by Homer’s “The Odyssey,” covers a lot — even the end of the world — but the plot unfolds on June 16, 1904, and follows Joyce’s mod-
James Joyce was 33 in 1915. / WIKIMEDIA COMMONS
ern-day Odysseus — average schlub Leopold Bloom — as he walks around Dublin. Thus, June 16 is known as “Bloomsday.” Public readings will take place at the Free Library Central Branch from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., at Rittenhouse Square from
12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., and from 3 p.m. on at the Rosenbach Library, which houses the original “Ulysses” manuscript. Dozens of readers, including former Gov. Ed Rendell and Free Library president Siobhan Reardon, will strive to bring
Joyce’s famously complex prose to life. “It’s like music. You can just sit there and let the words wash over you, even if you’re not getting the meaning of all the words,” Parker said of Joyce’s writing. Local actor Drucie McDaniel will read the legendary stream-of-consciousness monologue by Bloom’s wife Molly that concludes the book. “It shows the whole panoply of the female condition,” she said. “I can’t believe a man wrote it, and that it’s as old as it is and it’s still pertinent.” Joyce’s Odysseus is a Jewish Irishman who sells ads for a newspaper, and faithful Penelope is the philandering Molly, but McDaniel said the contradictions make the characters human. “He’s every man, and she’s every woman,” McDaniel said.
Visit Metro.us for more on this year’s Bloomsday celebration. Greatest book ever? James Joyce (1882-1941) published “Ulysses” in 1922. •
Deemed obscene, the book was banned in the United States until 1941.
In 1998, the Modern Library voted “Ulysses” the greatest book of the 20th Century.
Bloomsday is celebrated across the world by book-lovers who follow the paths of the characters around Dublin, read the book aloud or just enjoy good food and drink. SAM NEWHOUSE @scnewhouse

SMOKING BANS HIT THE SHORE The next time you hit the beaches while visiting the Jersey shore this summer, look over your shoulder if you light up, or be prepared to pay a huge fine. The smoking ban bill was delayed by the state Senate in the New Jersey legislature Friday, according to the AP. In April, the Assembly approved the ban. Senate made an alteration that will make 80 percent of each individual beach smoke-free. Smokers would face a $250 fine for a first offense, $500 for a second and $1,000 for more. Believe it or not, that’s still not good enough for some anti-smoking crusaders. Jen Miller of Philly Mag wrote a piece recently criticizing the amendment to the law for not being strict enough. “Remember what restaurants in Philadelphia were like before indoor smoking was banned? How smoke-free was your non-smoking section? And that was without a stiff beach wind thrown into the mix,” Miller wrote. Total nonsense. Studies have found outdoor secondhand smoke is usually less risky and varies depending on how close someone is to the smoker. The farther someone is, the less potential harm.
MATTHEW M. TURNER Matthew M. Turner is a columnist for Metro Philadelphia. You can reach him at email@example.com.
The smoking ban is important because it sets the standard for the whole state. It’s an aﬀront to that very concept of local communities making these very important decisions. I was born and raised in Ocean CIty, where alcohol isn’t even allowed to be served. It happens to be one of the most popular family-oriented beach resorts in the state. The smoking ban is important because it sets the standard for the whole state. It’s an affront to that very concept of local communities making these very important decisions — uniformity, or else.
So what does that mean? A lot of tickets will be written for this new law. It’s bad enough driving down to South Jersey, which is a game of sharks and minnows between the state police and tourists. Soon this smoking law will be another smack in the face to some tourists. In the end, it just a few bad apples ruining it for the rest of us, whether it’s the rude smokers who don’t throw away their cigarette butts and smoke very close to others in public places, or the bad apples in the legislature who think they can control every minute detail of human existence. The next time I smoke at the beach, you’ll know where I’ll be. Under the boardwalk.

Iraq insurgent advance spreads to northwest Battle. Government forces are using helicopter gunships against ISIL on the outskirts of Tal Afar. The insurgent offensive that has threatened to dismember Iraq spread to the northwest of the country on Sunday, when Sunni militants launched a dawn raid on a town close to the Syrian border, clashing with police and government forces. As the rapid advance south by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant toward Baghdad appeared to slow over the weekend, fighting erupted in the town of Tal Afar 40 miles west of Mosul near the Syrian border, security sources and a local official said. ISIL fighters and other Sunni Muslim-armed groups have stormed several towns on the road to Baghdad after seizing Mosul nearly a week ago

Mobile users face reckoning day on ‘net neutrality’ FCC. Both sides plan to lobby as the agency collects public comments on its proposed rules. A surge in mobile Internet usage has U.S. regulators considering whether to apply the same rules to fixed and wireless Internet traffic, and large technology firms are siding with consumer advocates to call for such a change.

Consumer groups have long advocated stricter anti-blocking and anti-discrimination rules for mobile web traffic. This year, they have powerful allies in Internet
companies like Google and Facebook, who see mobile as an increasingly popular platform. “The distinction between wireless and wireline is certainly not the same as it was. ... The enforceable net neutrality rules should apply equally, whether you use the Internet on your mobile or home broadband,” said Michael Beckerman. REUTERS

The force is not with Han Solo
Harrison Ford’s injuries on the set of the new “Star Wars” movie may be more severe than producers are letting on. While Ford reportedly hurt his ankle on the London set and is recovering, sources tell the Sun that there’s a lot more to it. “We were told he had some pelvic injuries and may have had a chest X-ray,” says a source, adding that Ford was airlifted to Oxford’s John Radcliffe
Her last album was called “Born to Die,” so maybe we shouldn’t be too shocked by Lana Del Ray being exceptionally morbid. But her latest proclamation is sounding alarm bells. “I wish I was dead already,” she tells the Guardian, after comparing herself to some late heroes like Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. When the interviewer tries to get her to walk back the outrageous statement, Del Ray counters with, “I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.” So what doesn’t she want to keep doing? “Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming.”

Hospital after a piece of the Millennium Falcon unexpectedly fell on him. “There’s talk his ankle is actually broken. And he may still be in the hospital. The cast is livid. They are openly questioning the safety of sets. They’ve asked for everything to be triple-checked.” Ford’s wife, Calista Flockhart, has reportedly rushed to London to be by his side while he recovers.
Angelina Jolie now has an English title. The actress and filmmaker received the title of Dame from Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II in the annual list of birthday honors this weekend. Jolie was recognized for her work

fighting against sexual violence in war zones. “To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Jolie says in a statement. “Working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.” Daniel Day-Lewis and Maggie Smith were also recognized.
It’s a girl, Kelly Clarkson told Twitter over the weekend. The pop star gave birth to her ﬁrst child on Thursday and named her River Rose Blackstock. She joins such weird, nature-related babynaming celebs as Kate Winslet (who named her son Bear) and Beyonce (who named her daughter Blue Ivy). LASSE E. KRISTIANSEN

Ice Cube, who played the patience-tested captain in charge of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in â€œ21 Jump Street,â€? is back and grumpier than ever in â€œ22 Jump Street,â€? a sequel well aware of itself. The former N.W.A. rapper fills us in on the new film and the awkward legacy of â€œFâ€” tha Police.â€? What did you think when you saw how much more youâ€™d be doing in this one compared to the ďŹ rst? I liked it, you know? I think people love Capt. Dickson. [Laughs] He talks as much sâ€” as possible, and everybodyâ€™s with it. It was cool just to get the tone right and to do a movie that people dig thatâ€™s fun â€” as fun as the first one. I think our greatest asset is low expectations. But after the success of the ďŹ rst one, it would seem expectations would be pretty high. Yeah, but people in the back of their minds donâ€™t think we could get the sequel as good as the first one. People rarely do. Itâ€™s not easy to include the audience without taking them out of the story,
ICE CUBE The rapper-actor-ďŹ lmmaker knows comedy sequels can be a headache, and he doesnâ€™t mind being asked about the police.
AMERICAâ€™S MOST WANTED but [directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller] do a great job of letting people know that weâ€™re making a cheesecake out of a cheesy idea. [Laughs] This kind of movie, the worst thing it could do is take itself too seriously. Are you taking any lessons here as you go into planning a sequel for â€œRide Alongâ€?? Yeah, you know, Iâ€™m a vet at doing sequels, but theyâ€™re hit-and-miss. I think the real page you need to take away from it
is to make sure you do a new movie that can stand on its own two feet and not a movie thatâ€™s borrowing off the first movie, because thatâ€™s when you get lazy and you run into trouble. Some people took the success of â€œRide Alongâ€? as a surprise. How did you feel about that? You know, thatâ€™s cool. [Laughs] I love to be underestimated. It gives me a leg up to get underestimated. And to surpass expectations â€” itâ€™s all glory.
