Tory top choice in voter poll Outspoken Etobicoke Coun. Rob Ford has pulled neck-and-neck with George Smitherman in the Toronto mayoral race — but John Tory would blow both out of the water if he were to jump in, a new poll says. When 405 Torontonians, polled by Forum Research Inc. between Friday and yesterday, were given a choice of the six main candidates plus Tory, who shocked many in January when he said he would sit out the election and has resisted a recent campaign to get him in, he polled way ahead of everyone.

Uzbek exodus More than 75,000 flee ethnic violence in Kyrgyzstan

Ways you can improve On the web Visit metronews.ca for news updates

Mobs of rioters slaughtered Uzbeks and burned their homes and businesses in Kyrgyzstan’s worst ethnic violence in decades, sending more than 75,000 members of the ethnic minority fleeing the country in attacks that appeared

aimed at undermining the Central Asian nation’s new interim government. More than 100 people were killed in southern Kyrgyzstan and more than 1,200 wounded in days of attacks, according to government estimates yesterday. The true toll may be

much higher. The International Committee of the Red Cross said its delegates witnessed about 100 bodies being buried in just one cemetery, and noted the official toll is unlikely to include bodies still lying in the streets.

Fires set by rioters raged across Osh, the secondlargest city in Kyrgyzstan, as triumphant crowds of ethnic-majority Kyrgyz men took control. Police or military troops were nowhere to be seen in the city of 250,000. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Note to MPs: Thanks for showing up POLITICS One of the most un-

productive sittings in Canadian legislative history is sputtering to an end. MPs are preparing to head home for the summer, having spent six months locked in furious debate over the vital role Parliament should play in a healthy democracy. But amid all the wrangling and rancour, there’s little sign Parliament has actually done much work. So far this year, only two routine money bills have received royal assent. Parliamentary expert Ned Franks says he can’t re- Break call anoth- • The er legisla- Commons is tive sitting expected to that has ac- break as early complished as Thursday, so little. but the Senate “There may sit up to might have an additional been (but) I three weeks have no to deal with record of legislation the it,” says the government political deems most scientist. urgent. According to Franks’ records, Parliament last year approved 34 bills — 24 before the summer hiatus. That’s on par with the average 35 bills per year passed by the mother of all parliaments in Britain. As Franks observes, “This Parliament isn’t functioning like a normal Parliament.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

A beauty pageant that requires contestants to show some skin in the bathing suit portion has thrown out a competitor for showing too much of it. Sophie Froment was dismissed from the Miss Universe Canada pageant on Saturday after some steamy television commercials she did for Ashley Madison — a dating website for men and women seeking an affair — were leaked to organizers. The company’s website advertises a 100 per cent “affair guarantee.” Last December, its “Life is short. Have an affair” advertising campaign was rejected by the TTC’s advertising review committee because it didn’t meet

community standards. Although Froment, a 21year-old law student, is currently featured in a U.S. television commercial for

the company wearing lingerie, the ads in question were never broadcast. But someone — Froment says she doesn’t know who — posted them online. In one commercial, Froment is topless and lying on her stomach on a bed with a man. In another, she’s kissing him. A statement on the Beauties of Canada website, which produces the Miss Universe Canada, says Froment was dismissed because she “made some career choices that are not compatible with the image of women that our organization tries to promote; and which would disqualify her from representing Canada at the 2010 Miss Universe Pageant.”

Vancouver Soaking up the sunshine

Inquiry to release findings later this week A quarter-century after the worst terrorist attack in Canadian history, a federal inquiry is set to deliver a belated verdict on what went wrong — and what can be done to ensure that another such tragedy never takes place. The report on the 1985 Air India bombing, expected to be presented to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and made public Thursday, is the product of nearly four years of work by former Supreme Court justice John Major and a staff of lawyers and researchers. The team sifted through tens of thousands of pages of classified documents and took testimony from more than 200 witnesses during the painstaking investigation. The five volumes will to-

ACCIDENT

Swiss officials say the two Canadians killed in a weekend bus crash were a couple from Ontario. A 71-year-old man and his 67-year-old wife died in the accident in southern Switzerland, but officials declined to provide their names. Swiss authorities also said 13 Canadians are still being treated in various hospitals in the region. They expect six of the patients will be well enough to be released by today. In Ottawa, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Canadian consular officials have been sent to help. A group of 48 Canadian tourists were on a bus that went off the side of a road and ended up on its side Saturday near the capital, Bern. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Finance ministers meeting at P.E.I. resort The federal finance minister says he hopes to come away from a meeting with his provincial counterparts with an agreement on how pension reform in Canada should proceed. Jim Flaherty and the provincial and territorial finance ministers are currently huddled at a resort on Prince Edward Island. The meeting comes amid fears that a growing number of people — especially the middle class — aren’t

squirrelling enough cash away for their retirement years and will be faced with a reduction in their standard of living. Flaherty is proposing a number of initiatives including Flaherty what he calls a modest and gradual increase in Canada Pension Plan payroll premiums. The country’s main

small-business lobby group, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, is dead set against anything that would increase CPP premiums. But Canadian Labour Congress president Ken Georgetti wants the premiums doubled. Flaherty said he doubted the provinces would agree to doubling the CPP, and said such a jump could hurt the economy and place a heavy burden on businesses and people who are self-employed.

Feds miss targets on real-estate holdings: Report PORTFOLIO Managers of the federal government’s massive real-estate portfolio have again fallen short of their performance targets, says an internal report. Vacancy rates remained stubbornly high, maintenance costs rose significantly and the government’s re-

turn on investment was anemic — raising questions about the business savvy of federal bureaucrats. The findings are contained in Public Works’ socalled Asset Report Card for 2008-2009, a draft copy of which was obtained by The Canadian Press under the

Access to Information Act. The document is an annual accounting of how efficiently the government manages the 353 buildings it owns across the country, including 233 Crown-owned office buildings. Most of the offices are in the Ottawa area. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Research report rips Pakistan Karzai urges support Support for Taliban still reaches the highest levels of government, it claims

for NATO campaign

Pakistan’s main spy agency continues to arm and train the Taliban and is even represented on the group’s leadership council despite U.S. pressure to sever ties and billions in aid to combat the militants, said a research report released yesterday. The findings could heighten tension between the two countries and raise further questions about U.S. success in Afghanistan since Pakistani co-operation is seen as key to defeating

KANDAHAR Afghan President Hamid Karzai called yesterday on community leaders to support a NATO campaign to bolster security in Kandahar, urging people to work with his government to “bring dignity back.” NATO has already begun an operation to ramp up security, and the campaign is expected to accelerate the coming months. Many of the estimated halfmillion Kandahar residents are skeptical of the operation, fearing it will lead to

Karzai told the assembled group the operation will be led by Afghan forces and will not resemble a heavy military offensive with tanks and airstrikes. “We need your co-operation with this Karzai operation,” he said. “I don’t accept any excuse for not co-operating. We need bravery of the people.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sri Lanka Mass wedding ERANGA JAYAWARDENA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A separatist party that advocates independence for the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, leaving the country’s Francophones to fend for themselves, scored an unprecedented win in yesterday’s general election. Final results gave the Dutch-speaking New Flemish Alliance — a fringe factor until now — 27 of the 150 legislative seats, up 19 from the 2007 vote. Bart De Wever, leader of the New Flemish Alliance, urged “Francophones to make (a country) that works.” Today, King Albert is expected to begin talks with key politicians on what sort of government can be formed. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

But the report issued yesterday by the London School of Economics offered one of the strongest cases that assistance to the group is official ISI policy, and even extends to the highest levels of the Pakistani government. “Pakistan’s apparent involvement in a doublegame of this scale could have major geopolitical implications and could even provoke U.S. countermeasures,” said the report.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a highly profitable company. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got lots of assets. They have the prospect of continuing, but they have to meet their obligations here.â&#x20AC;? Axelrod brushed aside criticism that Obama has not yet met or spoken to BP CEO Tony Hayward, saying Hayward knows what the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demands have been since the crisis began. The president will make clear in his meeting Wednesday that BP meets its responsibility for caring for people affected by the spill, Axelrod said.

INVESTIGATION Israel has asked Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former top military lawyer to help investigate its attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. A statement from the Israel government says one of two foreign observers for a proposed inquiry would be retired Brig.-Gen. Ken Watkin, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former judge advocate general. Watkin served as a Canadian Forces legal officer for more than 25 years and has been involved in various inquiries arising from the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Foreign affairs minister Lawrence Cannon welcomed Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to set up the independent commission, saying Watkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career makes him well-suited to participate. The proposal for the commission goes before Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet for approval today. It would be chaired by retired Israeli Supreme Court justice Yaakov Turkel. A second foreign observer proposed for the probe is Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate Lord William David Trimble.

world 15

Sex-tape scandal first for Indonesia Indonesians grappled with their first-ever celebrity sex-tape scandal, casting aside social taboos as they swarmed around office computers and mobile phones to watch clips allegedly showing a muchloved pop star with two girlfriends. The story topped newscasts for a week and dominated chatter on social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. But just as controversial was the reaction of officials in the newly democratic nation. Police initially threatened to charge the â&#x20AC;&#x153;starsâ&#x20AC;? under a strict anti-pornography law. Several high schools were raided for mobile phones so the offending clips could be removed. And some ministers said the incident pointed, once again, to moral decay and the need for stricter controls of the Internet. Indonesia, a secular nation with more Muslims than any other in the world, emerged from 32 years of dictatorship in 1998. It won praise for tackling the tough tasks of fighting corruption and terrorism and implementing widely lauded social and economic reforms. The first six-minute video clip appears to show pop singer Nazril Irham, better known as Ariel, in bed with his girlfriend Luna

Maya, a top model, actress and, up until the scandal, the face of Lux beauty soap. The two deny it was them, saying the footage has been doctored, but were called in for questioning by police. Then a second eightminute video emerged, purportedly showing Ariel with a former girlfriend, also a well-liked model and television presenter, further fanning public appetite for more. As the tapes were downloaded onto Facebook and YouTube (they have since been removed by the sites' administrator) and distributed from mobile phone to mobile phone, the country tottered on the verge of sexual hysteria. But, in the wake of the sex-tape saga, Minister of Information and Technology Tifatul Sembiring renewed calls for content control, and teams immediately set out to deploy firewalls for more than 2,000 Internet cafes around the country.

urban shock for Toronto eyes. Traffic is chaotic and getting around by transit can be tough. Naples has many bus and train services, but the buses can be hot, slow and crowded and the various rail lines barely connect. In fact, I spent hours understanding how the network fits together. It doesn’t help that there are decades worth of conflicting maps and diagrams scattered throughout the network. It does help that every form of transport in the region is covered by

The main cross-city suburban rail line is gradually being integrated into the Metro network except it does not link well with the main Metro route. Imagine transferring between Yonge and Bloor stations via moving walkways and a deep, graffiti-coated stairwell. (I did not try the elevator.) A beautiful four-stop, orphaned Metro line runs far

from the city centre, waiting to be connected to the rest of the network — but it could take a long time. Naples is old and much history lies beneath street level. Naples does have streetcars along the seafront but service has been suspended. If the lines reopen, perhaps the authorities will have a way of keeping the city’s insane traffic from clogging the tracks.

Worth mentioning

Kicking back to watch games may slow productivity Even down on the Toronto stock market floor, amid a flurry of multimillion-dollar trades, the TVs are tuned into the World Cup. It’s just one effect of the planet’s biggest sports tournament, a month-long phenomenon that a U.K. study suggests could cost billions in lost productivity around the world. Others challenge the notion. They argue the World Cup could actually benefit some economies — depending on which team wins and how much fans shell out for the celebration. While there may be a debate about the economic bottom line, there is no

disputing the soccer frenzy sweeping across workplaces as people around the world return to the office today. In Honduras, the government is giving 200,000 public employees time off during the tournament to watch the national team play. Politicians have even urged private businesses to follow their lead. In Canada, a senior strategist for TD predicted international productivity would dip during World Cup matches. Millan Mulraine couldn’t think of any empirical research done on the topic,

but last Friday, with many TVs on the Toronto trading floor showing soccer, he expressed confidence about his hunch. “In this environment, normally you would be watching business news,” Mulraine said. “But given that the World Cup is on now live, I think that’s what everyone’s tuned into ... even at work. “I’ve taken a few glances at it while working, so I can testify to the fact that, yes, productivity will likely decline during events.” A director at Scotia Capital in Toronto told the Wall

Street Journal that many traders took Friday off to watch the start of the tournament. The paper reported that during Friday’s games the New York trading volume was at its lowest point in two months. In the soccer-mad U.K., more than 50 per cent of 687 managers surveyed last month by the Chartered Management Institute worry their employees may be distracted by discussions about the World Cup. The institute estimates that lost hours of productivity could cost more than $1.4 billion — to the British economy alone. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Consumer habits

Eco-intentions are great, but a new survey reveals a few of them are bad from the start lights striking differences between what we say we do, and how we actually behave. It also concludes that this perception gap is growing. “Canadians have a great desire to be green, but they are struggling,” says Nick Cowling, vice-presi-

Energy use Where we’re wrong: A smaller gap here. The survey says Canadians have greater awareness of energy efficiency, but only participate in actions that do not require any real change or effort in their existing behaviours. How we can improve: Cowling says we’re already doing it. “Almost three-quarters of Canadians said they are using less energy than they did

last year,” he notes. “I think that’s because this is an area that has a big effect on their wallets. Energy efficiency has been the fastest transition — because people can save money.”

Fuel efficiency Where we’re wrong: The survey says 85 per cent of Canadian drivers believe they are driving fuel-efficient cars — ones that burn no more than 8.3 litres of gasoline per 100 kilometres. The problem? There simply aren’t that many fuel-efficient vehicles on our roads, proving most are misinformed about their fuel use.

How we can improve: “About 50 per cent are opting for public transportation instead of driving, and it’s a much younger demographic,” Cowling says. Typically, he says, “Canadians don’t tend to look at things that are a bit more of a financial stretch, like buying carbon offsets when you do air travel.” “Twelve per cent, or less, consider it,” he notes.

Debt fears spur Beijing’s cleanup call China’s cabinet ordered local governments yesterday to better manage their investment agencies amid concern that their borrowings — estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars — could cause problems for Chinese banks. The State Council also directed banks to control lending to these agencies by targeting loans at specific projects and monitoring how the credit is used. Chinese media say local government investment agencies owe 6 trillion yuan ($880 billion US) to state banks. American researcher, Victor Shih, estimates total local government borrowing from 2004-09 at 12 trillion yuan ($1.6 trillion US).

Jazz pilots still in talks, no strike yet

BANKING

Jazz Air, which operates more than 800 daily flights to more than 80 centres across Canada and the United States, is among the most profitable airlines in North America, its pilots union says.

Don’t worry about those travel plans just yet. Talks continue as pilots from Jazz Air try to hammer out a deal with the airline. Capt. Brian Shury, master executive council chairman for the Jazz Air pilot group, says a 72-hour strike notice is required before pilots can walk off. More than 1,500 pilots

AIRLINES

have been working without a contract since last June and have already voted overwhelmingly to strike if necessary. Shury has said Jazz pilots want improved pensions and allowances, which he said have been frozen since 2004, and modest salary increases. Jazz pilots earn an aver-

age salary of $75,000, but the union has said the salary range is from a low of $34,000 to a high of about $106,000. Shury had said Jazz pilots have been subject to a bankruptcy-era contract since 2004, and Jazz was negotiating as though it were still in bankruptcy.

Challenging time for TSX The Toronto stock market is starting the week stuck below where it started the year and analysts say the TSX has some tough obstacles to overcome before it can end 2010 with a positive showing. And with the main index down 79 points or 0.67 per cent year to date, it’s pretty challenging. In the short term, investors should probably brace for more selling pressure. “With all the good news known, and the bad news not fully comprehended, (stock) prices probably need to come down,” said John Johnston,

chief strategist, The Harbour Group at RBC Dominion Securities. He noted that “a lot of people are targeting a level of 950 on the S&P 500 index, which I think works out to about 10,000 on the TSX, which puts it at a 22 per cent decline (from highs registered in April).” THE CANADIAN PRESS

VS Jeff Francis finally got a win at Coors Field. The North Delta, B.C., native pitched seven innings to earn his first home win in two years and the Colorado Rockies beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-3 yesterday to complete a

three-game series sweep. “It’s been a long time,” Francis said, “but wins are wins, regardless of where they are. I think it was a good day for everybody. The bats broke out nicely.” Ryan Spilborghs homered twice and Carlos Gonzalez also connected for the Rockies, who picked up their second series sweep of the season. Gonzalez drove in three runs and Clint Barmes and Chris Iannetta had two RBIs apiece.

Jesse Litsch (0-1) lasted 21⁄3 innings in his first start for Toronto since undergoing Tommy John surgery last June. The right-hander gave up seven runs and nine hits. “He threw a couple of strikes and couldn’t put anybody away,” Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston said. “What I saw today wasn’t what I saw in 2008 before he left. I don’t know what to think right now. I hope he is back.”

Ken Dorsey’s 44-yard completion to Derek Stanley put Toronto on the Hamilton 10yard line with just over a minute remaining, giving the sparse Toronto crowd of 12,514 something to cheer about.

PGA Lee Westwood won the St. Jude Classic yesterday for his second career PGA Tour victory and first since 1998, beating Swede Robert Karlsson in a sudden-death playoff.

Sports in brief CFL Robbie Dehaze’s 13-yard

field goal with 51 seconds remaining rallied the Toronto Argonauts to a 13-10 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the first CFL exhibition game for both teams yesterday.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pau Gasol finally got the ball with a chance to shoot, and Kevin Garnett sent it back at him. A few minutes later, the same thing happened. Gasol was little more than a spectator of the Kobe Bryant show in Game 5 of the NBA finals last night. And if he doesn’t become part of the offence again, he might be watching something else: another Boston Celtics celebration at the Los Angeles Lakers’ expense. The forward from Spain either couldn’t get himself involved or the Lakers wouldn’t involve him. Gasol got only four shots in the first half and finished with 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting in the Celtics’ 92-86 victory that gave them a 3-2 lead in the series. Even worse for the Lakers, he looked passive and pouty, getting overwhelmed by Garnett and often complaining to the officials, just as he did when the Celtics beat the Lakers in the 2008 final. Bryant was superb in the third quarter, scoring 19 points on a series of long jumpers. But that’s not going to beat the Celtics, who are prepared to deal with big nights from Bryant as long as nobody else has them. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

• Germany has not lost an opener in the World Cup since a 2-1 defeat in 1982 against Algeria.

For one night, the Beautiful Game belonged to Germany. Known more as a methodical team than a creative one, the Germans scored several lovely goals last night in a 4-0 rout of Australia. Germany scored twice in each half and Tim Cahill was sent off as the three-time champion surged to the top of Group D at the World Cup. Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose scored in the first 30 minutes as

Australia coach Pim Verbeek’s defensive tactics backfired, and Thomas Mueller and Cacau added the others against an overwhelmed Australian defence. “We earned respect for ourselves,” Klose said. “It was hugely important to win the first game, but nothing is won yet. We’re a young team and we have fun playing.” Cahill was red-carded in the 56th minute for a late challenge on Bastian

Schweinsteiger. The dominant win, played in front of 62,660 fans at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, came without injured captain Michael Ballack. “I think the way we set up our attacks is something we’ve been working on intensively,” Germany coach Joachim Loew said. “But we’ve also worked on how we play off the ball — to move into unused space. We were very good on the ball tonight, and we created beautiful goals.” Australia now has a mountain to climb if it is to move on, especially as it will be without Cahill in its next match, against Ghana on June 19.

Italy vs. Paraguay

VS Italy coach Marcello Lippi didn’t make any bold predictions before the Azzurri’s World Cup victory four years ago, and he wasn’t about to change his ways before today’s opener with Paraguay. “I didn’t tell you four years ago before ItalyGhana that we were going to present you with (an) epic month,” Lippi said yesterday, referring to the 2-0 win in 2006 that set the tone for the Azzurri’s title run. “Great teams are born at big tournaments and grow game by game. Hopefully, we’ll start off well tomorrow night and Marcello Lippi grow from there.” Lippi called the skepticism surrounding his aging squad “normal.” Italy has appeared confused in recent friendlies and Lippi still appears uncertain over his lineup, especially with key midfielder Andrea Pirlo out with an injured left calf. “I can’t deny that certain injuries have prevented me from carrying out a few experiments, but there’s no doubt the squad is ready,” the coach said. While Italy is out to discredit its critics, Paraguay is playing in honour of absent striker Salvador Cabanas, who is completing a remarkable recovery from a gunshot wound.

A win for a continent GROUP D RESULTS

Ghana 1 Serbia 0

VS The first World Cup in Africa has its first African winner. Asamoah Gyan scored on an 84th-minute penalty yesterday as Ghana stunned Serbia with a 1-0 victory in Group D. The win set off celebrations not only on the Loftus Versfeld pitch, but across all of Africa. “That’s what you’re seeing,” Ghana midfielder Stephen Appiah said. “This is the first time the World Cup is held in Africa, and

all Africa is united.” After the final whistle, the Ghana players ran across the field in jubilation, some carrying national flags as they received applause from a crowd that pretty much made them the home team. “Every African is behind us,” Gyan said. “I salute all you guys. We win this match for you.” And for the folks back home. Large crowds gathered on major streets in Accra. Cars draped in the national flag swarmed the roads, and some drivers honked their horns while others sang. “The Black Stars have started what the African countries in the tournament have not been able

to do so far by winning a match,” 15-year-old viewer Inusah Gariba said. “We have taken the lead and hopefully an African team — preferably Ghana — would come out tops in the final.” That’s a long way off. In the opener for both teams, Zdravko Kuzmanovic needlessly handled a cross in the area, and then argued the call and the yellow card he received. Gyan drove the penalty kick high to the left for the only goal. Previously, Ghana missed a series of headers. John Mensah and Gyan missed the target and Dede Ayew headed against the goalpost.

Is a sports team worth it? A career in sports economics may change your view of the home team What’s cookin’?

RICHARD WOODBURY for Metro Canada

With a strong desire to bring an NHL franchise to cities such as Winnipeg, Quebec City and Hamilton, there is often talk of the economic benefits the teams would bring to the communities. It’s Brad Humphreys job to tell people the disheartening news. “I’ve got to basically tell people all the time, ‘Well, I’m sorry if these people have told you that a new hockey team in your community is going to be really beneficial economically. There’s no evidence to support that and it’s a moneylosing proposition for the local community and only a money-making proposition for the team owner and players,” says the sports economist who teaches at the University of Alberta.

Sporting events in Canada

• 2011 Canada Winter Games – Halifax

• 2011 Ford World Men’s Curling Championship – Regina, Sask. • 2012 IIHF World U20 Championship (2012 World Junior Hockey Championships) – Calgary and Edmonton • 2013 Canada Summer Games - Sherbrooke, Que. • 2015 Pan American Games – Toronto

While many may think that bringing a sports franchise into their city will mean an economic boom, sports economist Brad Humphreys say this is not so. In fact, when he heads to his local ball park, all he can think about is how much money was lost on the facility.

His 10 years of research indicates this is true for all sports. Sports economics is a relatively new branch of eco-

nomics, which takes economic principles and uses them to analyze issues in sports, such as the economic impact of hosting large

sports events like the Olympics or the economic impact of having a professional sports team. In Canada, there are only a handful of sports economists and becoming one is not a short process, with a PhD in economics being only a basic requirement. When he tells people what he does, he says they’re intrigued. This is because “sports cuts across all dimensions of society and provides people with a common shared experience,” he says. Not every area of economics has its own section in the newspaper, he adds. With the recent hosting of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, a lot of talk was about the

economic benefits it would bring to the city and province. The bad news is the Olympics have poor track records for this. “It’s almost certainly not beneficial for a local economy,” says Humphreys. “It probably costs a lot more than whatever return you get back out of it.” The Olympics are expensive to host because of the specialized facilities and enormous security costs. Other problems can crop up as well, such as the Athletes Village fiasco in Vancouver. “That blew up on them,” he says, adding that taxpayers are now on the hook for the facility. Humphreys is no longer the sports fan he once was and this is because of his profession. “Once I started doing this research on public sub-

Humphreys used to be able to admire a ballpark for its structure and beauty, but “now when I go to a ballpark, all I can think about is, ‘Well, how badly did local government get hosed out of money when this facility was built?’”

‘I need a vacation’ employees plead With the official start of summer vacation season just days away, workers are planning to take time off and they are feeling more at ease about it. According to CareerBuilder, more than half (56 per cent) of workers say they are more in need of a vacation in 2010 than they have been in past years. Additionally, 36 per cent say they feel more comfortable taking a vacation in 2010 than in 2009 due to an improving economy. Many workers have vacations on their radar screens and are planning to be away from the office longer. But, taking a vacation may not mean being completely unhooked from the office. Nearly half (49 per cent) of employers say they expect employees to check in with the office while they are away. Some vacation tips: Get it on the calendar today: Today companies are operating with smaller

staffs and having more than one person out of the office can negatively impact productivity. Be flexible and work with your coworkers to schedule vacation time before booking anything.

Limoges, 59, is planning to retire next year. Her other gig, meanwhile, will probably start taking up even more of her time. Originally from Ontario, Limoges moved out west with her first husband in the late 1970s. They got a Doberman together and after the divorce, Limoges took the dog.

She met her second husband at a dog show; he was a policeman who was also a Doberman owner. When her show dog ran out the door one day and ended up at pound, she decided to do some obedience training. She and the dog enjoyed the challenge. With her next pet, she began doing tracking. Then, a tornado hit Edmonton in 1987. Observing how important the search and rescue efforts had been during the disaster, Limoges and a group of five other dog owners decided to try it. They got hold of the training standards for a group in British Columbia and began learning. Every Sunday, they’d meet at a semi-demolished building in downtown Edmonton. They’d hide friends in the rubble and send the dogs to find them. When the dogs found their targets, they’d get their favourite toys to play

Final Twilight chapter split into 2 movies

With civil and family cases, Jesse James becoming frequent court figure

MOVIES Twilight fans will have twice as much to sink their teeth into for the saga’s final chapter, with Breaking Dawn to be released as two movies. Summit Entertainment, which is releasing the wildly popular vampire franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s books, said part one would come out Nov. 18, 2011. The script is being written now, with stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner returning. Production is set to begin this fall. Bill Condon, who won an Oscar for the screenplay for Gods and Monsters, will direct both movies. Condon also directed Dreamgirls and Kinsey and produced the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony with Hugh Jackman as host.

Jesse James is getting his day in court. Quite a few of them, actually. The biker businessman and estranged husband of Sandra Bullock was a fixture in a Los Angeles courtroom last week, where he’s involved in dueling lawsuits with an apparel manufacturer and distributor. James, 41, is scheduled to testify and is expected to attend all the proceedings. The case, with millions of dollars on the line, is far from the only one involving James. It is, however, one that centres on his business rather than his personal life. He is also embroiled in a custody dispute in neighbouring Orange County with his ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder. James had been expected to attend a hearing in that case this week, but it may be postponed. There’s also James’ ongoing divorce from Bullock playing out in Austin, Texas. No proceedings have been scheduled in that case. Bullock filed for divorce in April after several women claimed they had extramarital affairs with James. He apologized to Bullock, but he and his at-

Jesse James spent two days listening to jury selection, a rare move for a celebrity involved in a civil case.

torney have maintained the vast majority of the claims against James are untrue. James is the owner of West Coast Choppers, a custom motorcycle shop in Long Beach, Calif. He also owns several other businesses and has cultivated his bike-making craftsmanship and tough-guy persona into several televisions shows, most recently Spike TV’s Jesse James is a Dead Man. The clothing dispute being heard in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom centres on a deal James

and his companies made with Fortune Fashion Industries. The apparel company sued James in late 2007, claiming he had breached a contract that was worth millions of dollars to produce workwear. James has denied the allegations and countersued Fortune Fashions, saying the company didn’t disclose it didn’t have experience creating that type of apparel. He spent two days last week listening to jury selection, a rare exercise for a celebrity involved in a civil case. Often, stars in-

volved in civil matters only appear in court when they testify. James, dressed in workboots or other workshop attire, has opted to sit behind his attorneys so far during proceedings. While he had to listen to some potential jurors opine on his personal life, the subject is offlimits during the trial. A judge on Friday asked Fortune Fashions’ attorney to

refrain from using the word “cheater” in his opening remarks, even though he intended it only in relations to James’ business dealings. Numerous celebrity reporters and photographers showed up Wednesday when jury selection began, but their numbers had dwindled by opening statements on Friday. The case is expected to last several weeks. One courthouse where James won’t be showing up anytime soon is the criminal one. A paparazzo accused James of vandalizing his car after cheating allegations surfaced, but prosecutors rejected filing charges. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Mraz working to help end slavery in Ghana While Shakira, the Black Eyed Peas and other top musicians are in Africa to help kick off the World Cup, singer Jason Mraz was on the continent for another reason: to help free slaves. The 31-year-old Grammy winner was in Ghana this week with Free the Slaves, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “end slavery worldwide.” Mraz spent five days in the country, travelling with James Kofi Annan, a former child slave who used to work on fishing boats and had been enslaved for seven years. Annan founded Challenging Heights, a school in Winneba where many of its students are former slaves. The children per-

formed songs for Mraz. The singer also travelled to a rescue shelter for slaves in the town of Atebubu and to Lake Volta, where many child slaves are working, said Peggy Callahan, the organiza-

tion’s co-founder and executive producer. Callahan says she met Mraz through a mutual friend and she suggested he go to Ghana with her. “The movement to end slavery really needs more voices, but they really need to be authentic voices, people who really do care about an issue,” she said. “And Jason’s one of those people, and he’s willing to take the time to find out.” Mraz is the first celebrity to participate on the ground with the organization. The pop singer is also busy working on the follow-up to his platinumselling CD, 2008’s We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Steve Jobs unveils the iPhone4. The App Store currently has a strict no-nudity clause for its content.

Reading the mouseprint • So what exactly is the legalese that supports Apple’s censorship? Item 3.3.17 of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement, which states that it’s Apple’s “reasonable judgement” to reject apps that are “considered obscene,

pornographic, or defamatory” for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Other unsettling rules? Apple can kill your app anytime, and only owes developers using its software development kit no more than $50 in damages.

bing their magazine’s iPad version the “Iran edition,” as reported by Anna Leach of British tech blog ShinyShiny. There are those that argue Apple’s right to such censorship. Ever since Steve Jobs emailed Gawker’s Ryan Tate about his “Freedom of porn” App Store vision, many have countered that Apple has every right to its closed content garden, likening it to a mall or even a Wal-Mart. But this goes against Jobs’ promise to media compa-

nies that the iPad would make paywalls and e-magazines a solution to print’s current toil. Now that Apple is trying to cut out digital publishing favourite Adobe, as well as ensure a cut in mobile advertising with their iAd platform, print is now contending with a compromised future: no final say on their product (especially if it’s sold in Apple’s App Store).

loomsday fans, hold off on ordering that Guinness round: Wednesday may be a cause for protest rather than celebration, especially if you’ve been trying to download that iPad webcomic adaptation of James Joyce’s Ulysses. The day honours the lewd — yet transcendental — journey of fictional Dubliner Leopold Bloom, with readings and pub crawls. But commemorations are possibly marred by the censorship of the Irish literary classic in Apple’s App Store. Thanks to Steve Jobs’ strict no-nudity clause, Rob Berry and Josh Levitas’s Ulysses Seen webcomic has been banned from iPhones and iPads, specifically for its cartoon nudity. Of course, App Store censorship isn’t an isolated incident. Earlier this year, Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Mark Fiore saw his NewsToons iPhone app be rejected by Apple, since its satirization of “public figures” violated the company’s iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. Yet it doesn’t stop there. The no-nipples edict has affected edgy magazines like Vice and Dazed & Confused, the latter reportedly dub-

Arcade Fire takes fans on trip to The Suburbs Arcade Fire completed a duo of hastily organized Toronto shows on Saturday night, granting captivated crowds an early glimpse at material from their long-awaited third album. In front of a sold-out crowd at the Danforth Music Hall, the indie-rockers burned through an incendiary 90-minute set that integrated new material with favourites from the Montrealersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first two records. Frontman Win Butler, showcasing an oblique new hairstyle, rarely addressed a crowd who had lined up earlier in the afternoon to secure tickets for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you very much for coming,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said to cheers at the beginning of the show before launching into a song. But the lack of banter didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to bother the appreciative audience, who shouted the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anthemic choruses back to them and seemed eager to engage with their new material.

Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler belts out a song at the Danforth Music Hall Saturday.

It might have helped that much of what Arcade Fire played from The Suburbs, due out Aug. 3, carried an immediacy that was once uncommon for the band. From the punk rush of Month of May to the foreboding thump of Rococo, Arcade Fire debuted a set that hewed closer to traditional pop tunes than the swerving epics that popu-

lated their previous two records. The buoyant Ready to Start incited an audience clapalong, while the recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swaggering title track â&#x20AC;&#x201D; already available streaming online â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was greeted with cheers by an obviously familiar audience. Where Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotive voice once careened wildly through the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frequent crescendos, he sounds slightly more assured and subdued on the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new tracks. Of course, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still getting comfortable with performing the new songs, with these ramshackle gigs providing an opportunity to work out any remaining kinks. As a result, they were most animated when marching through the various fist-pumping anthems from their 2004 debut Funeral, with raucous takes on Wake Up (which was aided by a thunderous fan singalong) and Neighborhood #3 (Power Out).

Fox admits trying to throw off the press AN ACTOR WHO LIES TO THE MEDIA, NOW THAT’S AN ANOMALY!

Megan Fox admits her previous outlandish statements to the press were all an attempt to hide her personal life. “In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality,” Fox tells Zach Galifianakis in the latest issue of Interview magazine. “So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.” The actress is also coming to terms with the amount of media attention she receives. “I don’t really resent being on

the red carpet as much as I do having to deal with the paparazzi,” she says. “The photographers on the red carpet, that’s their job.”

Pattinson gaining buzz for new film HE MAY BE MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY VAMPIRE FACE Robert

Pattinson may finally getting attention as an actor for something other than the Twilight franchise, as early Oscar buzz on his performance in Water for Elephants is already growing. “It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he were to receive an Oscar nod for this role,” a source close to the film tells Hollywood Life. Even his Oscar-winning co-star, Christoph Waltz, is impressed. “It’s in my house,” Waltz says of his own Oscar. “But the way things are looking, I might have to hand it off to Rob next year.” METRO

This is potentially one of the most rewarding and romantic periods of the entire year — you certainly won’t be short of interesting proposals!

Slow down a bit and pay more attention to what is taking place in your immediate environment.

If you sense that something is not quite right today you must act on what your instincts tell you.

Just because certain tactics worked in the past does not mean they will work in the future. Make a point of looking for unusual solutions.

Shy and retiring you most certainly are today you won’t hesitate to let that special someone know just how much they mean to you.

If you are not making progress towards your goals that you were hoping for then maybe you should ask yourself if your methods need improving.

Let partners and colleagues know that you are a fully paidup member of the team. There is no point being half-hearted about what you intend to do.

Others will look up to you and follow you faithfully this week. That applies to all areas of your life but especially to your career.

Someone who is as different from you as it is possible to get will make a big impression on you today and it could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

Don’t let your suspicions get the better of you today or you could miss out on an offer that will do you the world of good.

You must put your doubts and suspicions to one side and give loved ones the benefit of the doubt. What you do together will stand the test of time.

Think about ways you can make your life more rewarding and exciting. Changes to your working routine should be top of your list.
