A new Mass Insight Education poll found that 62 percent of respondents back lifting charter school caps. The poll also found 40 percent gives public schools a grade of C.

Starting a business isn’t easy these days, but maybe that’s why entrepreneurs fresh out of school are taking the gutsy first step. “Generally speaking, young people have a lot more appetite and tolerance for the risk associated with a new venture,” said Mark Allio, regional director for the Massachusetts Small Business Development Center Network.

Getting started

According to business.gov, the official business link to the U.S. government, these are the 10 steps to starting a business:

Step 1: Research and plan Step 2: Get business assistance and training Step 3: Choose a location Step 4: Finance Step 5: Determine legal structure of your business Step 6: Register a name Step 7: Get a tax identification number Step 8: Register for state and local taxes Step 9: Licenses and permits Step 10: Employer responsibilities

Is now as good a time as any?

Despite, and in many cases, because of the down economy, startups are growing. “People have lost their jobs, had to search for additional work or new work and they haven’t been able to find it because of the recession,” said Allio, who estimates a 20 percent increase in necessity driven start-ups. “If you can start at a low point, your business plan is probably ... strong,” said Devin Cole, ONEin3 Boston manager. METRO started in 2001 in Brookline and expanded in 2006 to a second location on Huntington Avenue. Michel and his brothers — Lou, 28, and Nassib, 23 — run the two different locations while their mother and father do the behind the scenes work such as daily food preparation and paperwork. “It was a big risk and a lot of hard work,” said Lutfi.

There’s a concrete facing at one end of Lomasney Way that labels the West End of Boston “The Greatest Neighborhood This Side of Heaven.” It’s an odd claim, given that the five-unit apartment building next door is about all that remains of the original neighborhood, standing in virtual protest to a razing that took place generations ago. “Fifty-one years ago, this area began to be destroyed,” said Bruce Guarino of the West End Museum, citing the eminent domain-driven renewal that forced out nearly 8,000 residents. “By 1962, this was a memory, a wasteland.” Of course, developers transformed the wasteland

powerful lobbying group for older Americans. “I urge Congress to listen to the AARP, listen to the AMA, and pass this reform for hundreds of millions of Americans,” Obama said in a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. “We are closer to passing this reform than ever before.” House leaders have struggled to win over some party moderates who have lingering concerns.

Some interesting facts to know about the military base in Texas: Covering 339 square miles, Fort Hood is the largest active duty armored post in the United States. It is home to about 52,000 troops as of earlier this year. At the Soldier Readiness Center, soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening — on average about 300 to 400 screened a day. The base is home to nine schools — seven elementary schools and two middle schools — and all were on lockdown. Fort Hood officially opened Sept. 18, 1942, and was named in honor of Gen. John Bell Hood. It is charged with maintaining readiness for combat missions.

News crews gather outside the entrance to the Fort Hood military base on Thursday.

An Army psychiatrist who had treated soldiers wounded in foreign wars opened fire with two handguns on soldiers preparing for foreign deployment at the Fort Hood U.S. Army post in Texas on Thursday, killing 12 and wounding 30 others.

How do you get famous people to do as you tell them in front of the camera?

Are supermodels different from actors in front of the camera?

I always improvise. My only preparation is the location and the lighting. Then I improvise. I try to put people at ease. Then I wait for an off-guard moment and shoot the pictures, even if it means standing on my head.

How do you manage to say something new with your photographs?

I’ve studied painting most of my life; that’s something I try to bring in. Andy Warhol gave me my first job in New York, and I learned from him that everything is a self-portrait.

Because they take themselves too seriously! They’ve spent too much time looking at themselves in the mirror. I have people who walk in and say “only shoot me from this side.” Then I make a joke, they laugh — and I have my shot!

used to playing a role. The worst thing you can say to them is “just be yourself.” Models are used to taking directions and being beautiful. My job is to distract them from themselves. What’s your most memorable photo shoot?

‘Sad song in my sweet heart’ Just because you weren’t brought up in a cult that shielded you from the world doesn’t mean you can’t relate to the words and music of Christopher Owens

Though it would be irresponsible journalism to not mention that Girls singer Christopher Owens spent his first 16 years in the sheltered climate of a cult called Children of God, the universal nature of the songs he’s singing now almost make his background irrelevant. “I grew up totally different than anybody I know,” he says. “But what I have noticed is that everybody grows up feeling kind of like they’re trapped.” When Owens felt trapped, he left the cult and moved to Texas. He eventually found his way to San Francisco where he met JR White, a roommate who would become his recording partner. Together they committed to tape the sad, sweet and sometimes silly sounding songs that make up “Album,” Girls’ debut.

Girls aloud “I can read a Tennessee Williams novel about suburban Presbyterians from 1940 and be like, ‘Yes! I know what they’re going through!’ We all have the same experiences in different ways.” For more with Girls and Christopher Owens, listen to our podcast at www.metro.us/MMMpod

“We didn’t have any band or any label or any deadline, so we were just recording very casually, but at the same time we were trying to make the best songs that we could,” says Owens. Those songs were good enough to quickly garner them a virtual following on MySpace, which led to peo-

ple wanting to book gigs, which eventually led to Spin Magazine naming them this year’s best band. Though Owens writes lyrics coated in enough teenage malaise to inspire a YouTube cover of their song “Hellhole Ratrace” by an actual teenage girl, he says he and White had a fun time recording the song whose opening lines inspired this headline. “That’s the whole point of writing a song about something sad,” he says, “to get it off your chest.” Girls Saturday, 9 p.m. Great Scott 1222 Comm.

Late-night’s changing face George, Mo’Nique and Wanda join Conan, Dave and Jay Despite these groundbreaking achievements of minorities in entertainment, these comedians are going to stay focused PHOTOS: GETTY IMAGES

David Letterman. Jay Leno. Conan O’Brien. Jimmy Fallon. Craig Ferguson. Jimmy Kimmel. All funny. All men. All straight. And all white. But this year marks a change in that late-night landscape. This weekend, African-American comedian Wanda Sykes (who happens to be a lesbian) premieres “The Wanda Sykes Show” on Fox, while Mexican-American star George Lopez launches his “Lopez Tonight” talk show on TBS Monday. Last month saw the premiere of “The Mo’Nique Show,” the plus-sized funny lady’s weeknight, late-night talk show on BET. In the matter of a few days, late-night will become one of television’s most diverse niches — but it’s not an unprecedented move. University of Southern California Communications and Media Professor Larry Gross, who focuses on media portrayals of minorities, says that compared to, say, sitcoms, talk-show formats are generally kind to minorities. “Talk-show hosting is a role that the public accepts odd casting in,” says Gross.

“Lopez Tonight” premieres Monday at 11 p.m. on TBS.

“The Mo’Nique Show” airs weeknights at 11 p.m on BET.

“The examples in particular are Arsenio Hall, of course, but also Ellen and Oprah — if [these new hosts] are willing and able to put their personal identity in the background, it can work. The reason Oprah

“The Wanda Sykes Show” premieres Saturday at 11 p.m. on Fox.

and Ellen are so successful is that they don’t run your nose in their differences.” Don’t bring up “differences” or “challenges” to Mo’Nique. “I’m one of the boys, baby,” the comedian insisted while promoting

her show this summer. “[My writers] don’t look at [this show] and say, ‘Oh, well, we’ve got a challenge because you are a woman. We’ve got a challenge because you are a black woman in late-night.’ ...

We are not worried about everybody else.” And despite his position as the first Latino in late night, Lopez claims he feels no pressure. “I only feel added pressure because apparently in some parts of the country, I’ll be up against novellas,” he jokes. “I don’t feel any pressure to do anything other than what I’ve been doing the last 30 years, and it is making people laugh.”

“I put funny first. I just happen to have boobs.” SYKES ON BEING A WOMAN IN LATE-NIGHT

DOROTHY ROBINSON & AMBER RAY

Talk is cheap Why are comedians opting to host late-night shows rather than star in sitcoms? According to Gross, it all comes down to financing. “There are more opportunities [to host], because talk shows are easy to start and very easy to end,” he says. “[Networks] don’t have to put much money into building a set, hiring writers.”

Mooney

Not diverse enough? For African-American comedian Paul Mooney, one thing is missing from this changing late-night landscape: A black man. “George Lopez is Latin,” he sneers. “That’s no big deal. And black women are fine — they can make jokes and people won’t mind. But making jokes about sex and being a black male on late night? The combination of sex and being aggressive is too dangerous for America to handle.” METRO

Movie Watch PRESENTED BY

‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’ In this unnervingly comedic indie film directed by John “Jim from ‘The Office’” Kransinski, a female psych student conducts interviews with several different men in an attempt to get to the core of the masculine psyche. The deeper she digs, the more uncomfortable she becomes, as the stories get more disturbing and she has to deal with the possibility that people are actually all just horrible.

‘Gentlemen Broncos’ The offbeat writer/director that brought us 2004’s brilliant but fatally overquoted “Napoleon Dynamite” is back, this time with a story about a

home-schooled teen who dreams of being a writer. His dreams are hijacked, however, when a known fantasy writer (played by Jemaine from “Flight of the Conchords”) steals his novel. We suggest seeing it now, so you’ll know what everyone’s quoting.

Most women (and probably more than a handful of men) would kill to stare into George Clooney’s eyes for a night. But you know what’s even better?

So, should you see a movie for funny faces alone?

A ‘suspenseful premise,’ indeed

Dick on ‘The Box’ ‘Donnie Darko’ director Richard Kelly scales down his grandiose visions for a more simple and thought-provoking movie A man with a rotting face gives a couple a box that has the ability to gift them a million dollars, but it also kills somebody somewhere in the world. If that sounds like the perfect premise for the director of “Donnie Darko,” that’s because it is. Richard Kelly says he long ago fell in love with the Richard Matheson story that his latest movie is based on. “‘The Box’ was a story that I was lucky enough to stumble upon as a child,” Kelly says. “I think I was 10 or 11 years old Kelly

In this one, because the main character was 9, I wanted to turn that part of my brain off.” To get into the particular head of the child at the center of the film, newcomer Max Records, the director had to be willing to make some sacrifices. In one scene, Records has to get inside one of the titular wild things, emerging covered in goop. “He just did not want to get in it,” Jonze remembers. “He said, ‘I’ll only do it if afterward you let me cover you in it.’ So afterward we went back to his room and he just covered me in it. He was so happy. And I was miserable, so it was good retribution.” NED EHRBAR

But given its production design alone, most will be hard-pressed to say the same of Spike Jonze’s adaptation of “Where the Wild Things Are.” The wild things, created with a mix of puppetry and CGI effects, are nearly identical to their illustrated counterparts. Even the creative license that Jonze takes with the story cap-

tures the essence of Maurice Sendak’s original book, a tale about a young boy who creates an inner world filled with monsters who “rumpus” and play once they make the boy their king. The wild things are humanized into ageless characters who love, fight, create and destroy. Jonze and screenwriter/author Dave

Eggers seem to make the wild things into children themselves, through which Max learns more about his own rebellious behavior, but they do this without ever making it nauseatingly obvious. Devoid of the normal moralizing kid-film sap, “Wild Things” is sure to be as much of a classic as its children’s book predecessor. HEIDI PATALANO

Opinion

ELLIOTT KALAN LETTERS@METRO.US

ELLIOTT SAVES THE WORLD, 1 Over the next few columns I plan to solve all of America’s problems, one by one. I ask for nothing in return except for “Mad Men” bombshell Christina Hendricks.

O

nce seen as a hope-fueled dynamo, Barack Obama has wasted the last year playing basketball, accepting awards and eating candy for breakfast — because when you’re president, you make your own rules. Well somebody has to take responsibility for this place, and if he won’t then I suppose it might as well be me, because I have some extra time this month. Let’s start with the economy. Its complicated collapse was the result of systemic flaws and risky corporate investment. Basically, money stopped working. Probably because it was haunted. The upshot is everyone’s out of work and living under bridges with nothing to eat but the occasional passing billygoat. The country can only operate this way for so long before encountering a billygoat who’s big enough to knock us into the river.

L

uckily, I’ve got the answer. First, we classify “jobs” as an endangered species deserving government protection and breeding assistance. Once jobs start reproducing in captivity, it’s only a matter of time before they return to the wild. Second, banking was at the root of all this, so let’s eliminate it. America was built on a strong foundation of hillbillies hiding their money in mattresses, and by gum we can do it again! Most importantly, though, let’s agree never to do this again. Sure, the current plan of doing the exact thing as before and hoping it turns out differently has the added benefit of letting those responsible go unpunished. But it has the small flaw of being terribly bad. If, instead, we never do the things we did that caused this, we’ll at least have an excuse when things collapse again. Problem solved! – Elliott Kalan is an Emmy-winning writer for “The Daily Show.”

The Patiots are playing the Dolphins on Sunday, and that means one thing: They’ll have to be ready for anything. Miami sports one of the most unorthodox offensive attacks in the NFL. The Wildcat formation is the centerpiece, but the Dolphins have proven willing to do just about anything at any time with the ball. “They have new stuff every week,” New England coach Bill Belichick said. “They have a lot of different gadget plays, different formations ... that run the same plays. And they have a variety of gadget plays — two, three, four of them every week.

The Patriots LB corps is key in Sunday’s matchup.

“Everybody gets it, so I’m sure we’ll get it.” At least it’s not unexpected. The Wildcat — in which a running back lines up under center — made

Amid all the (warranted) talk about how difficult it is to defend Miami’s offense, don’t forget that the Patriots’ attack is actually far more effective. New England ranks third in the NFL in yards per game (406) and sixth in total points (198). Miami, meanwhile, is 23rd in yards per game (305) and 13th in total points (176).

As always, Joey Porter is going to be booed at Gillette Stadium. Loud. Lustily. And you know what? He’s probably earned it. As always. In a conference call with New England media this week, the linebacker spoke of his “natural hate” for the Pats. Of course, he’s pretty sure they feel the same way about him. “You know they don’t like me,” he said. “Everybody knows, let’s be honest, they don’t like me, and that’s fair. I don’t like them and that’s fair. So it’s not like it’s a divorce happening. We were never really married.”

Sunday opens the biggest month of the regular season for the Patriots. Games against the Dolphins — the defending AFC East champions — are always emotional on both sides of the ball. After Miami comes a trip to Indianapolis, where the Colts will likely still be undefeated after playing Houston this week. Then it’s a home game against the Jets — another AFC East contender — before a trip to New Orleans to visit the Saints, the other unbeaten team in the league. At least it won’t get any tougher.

No. 9 LSU at No. 3 ’Bama, 3:30 p.m. (CBS) Breakdown: This is probably the second most important SEC game of the season. The winner between the Tigers (7-1) and Crimson Tide (8-0) will take a stranglehold on the conference’s West division championship, and a coveted shot at top-ranked Florida in the SEC title game in Atlanta on Dec. 5. Who wins: Alabama. We’d pick LSU if the game were at Death Valley, but in Tuscaloosa, we like the Tide’s dominant defense.

TV highlight No. 15 Ohio State at No. 11 Penn State, 3:30 p.m. (ABC)

Wallace enjoying his honeymoon with C’s Once public enemy No. 1 for Boston hoops fans, forward is already beloved at Garden ’Sheed a major contributor in Celtics’ blazing start BRIAN BABINEAU/NBAE/GETTY IMAGES

A little green can go a long way. Just ask Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace. The newest Boston star has found himself at home here, where the locals have gladly welcomed one of the city’s longtime sports villains. “It’s fun,” Wallace said. “It’s cool. Everyone here is treating me with open arms at the gas station, supermarket, restaurants, just walking down the street, like, ‘Hey, welcome to Boston.’” The temperamental power forward has the fiery attitude that is so beloved in this town, and

Wallace has contributed on offense and defense this year.

the Garden’s passionate fans have given Wallace loud receptions typically reserved for its homegrown stars. It’s not like he hasn’t deserved it, though. Entering

a weekend in which the Celtics (6-0) will host the Suns Friday before traveling to New Jersey Saturday, Wallace is fourth on the team with 11.2 points per game and fifth with 4.5 re-

bounds. He has knocked down 42.5 percent of his 3point attempts. Wallace has been an ideal sixth man, and his defense has helped the Celtics’ defense hold opponents to a league-low 81.5 points per game. Doesn’t matter to him — as long as his teammates approve. “When I’m on the court, I’m totally different than when I’m off of the court,” Wallace said. “When I’m on the court, I’m at work. Yeah, I’m hustling and fussing and cussing, getting techs, this and that. But off of the court, I’m just an everyday dad.” JEFF HOWE

Emelianenko is 30-1-1.

Is it finally Fedor time in the U.S.? He’s never tapped out or been knocked out. He’s widely considered the best heavyweight MMA fighter in the world. He’s had a documentary made about him called “Baddest Man on the Planet” — and it might not be a misnomer. Is it finally time for Fedor Emelianenko to bust onto the mainstream sports radar in the U.S.? The Russian fighter, who has only ever lost on a flukey TKO, meets Brett Rogers Saturday in his first fight with the Strikeforce promotion. It’s a rare high-profile bout not on pay-per-view; CBS will air it at 9 p.m. A sellout is expected at Chicago’s Sears Centre Arena. METRO/AS
