The University of Alberta’s dean of students announced the registration suspension of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity on Thursday. The suspension comes a week after a video surfaced that allegedly showed frat pledges being forced to eat vomit. “Effective immediately, the registration of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, as a student group at the university, is suspended,” Frank Robinson said. “The suspension is in effect until further notice.” A pile of frozen vomit greets visitors at the front door of the frat house near the university campus, perhaps an indication of how often residents have used the door over the past week. Delta Kappa Epsilon members have remained tight-lipped about the incident since the video was leaked. The fraternity can appeal the suspension, which will end once an investigation is completed by Campus Protection Services. Robinson said anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to come forward.

“Any student that may be affected by these activities is encouraged to access the full suite of confidential student services available at the university,” he said. “We are treating this as a very complex situation involving a lot of our students and we take it very seriously.” ANDREAS MORSE

What to do when things get Wooly Wooly Bully’s is the second bar in Old Strathcona to be hit with conditions City is working with bar owners to reduce incidents ANDREAS MORSE

@METRONEWS.CA

The city is encouraging owners of an Old Strathcona bar to start cleaning up their clientele after Wooly Bully’s Pub had conditions placed on its business licence Thursday. The conditions were recommended to the city in a joint submission by the bar owner and the Public Safety Compliance Team (PSCT) in the hopes of stopping ongoing violence and disturbances in

and around the bar. “In the past 18 months, there were numerous concerns and some incidents that were occurring inside and outside of Wooly Bully’s that were brought to our attention, mainly through the EPS Whyte Avenue beat members,” said Nicole Chapdelaine, co-ordinator of PSCT. Chapdelaine said PSCT met with the owners of Wooly Bully’s and the decision was mutually made to place conditions on the bar. “We decided to put the

conditions on to assist them with giving their staff and themselves some really specific direction in terms of expectations of what to do to ensure the facility is safe and that no one else gets injured,” she said. Chapdelaine called it a proactive approach. Shirley Lowe, executive director of the Old Strathcona Business Association, said despite conditions being placed on two bars in the area, incidents in Old Strathcona have gone way down over the past two

years. “We do have statistics that show that incidents are down about 33 per cent,” she said. “There’s a substantial difference.” Lowe credits the work they’ve done with PSCT and the Best Bar None Program, which rewards establishments for cleaning up their act. “We have good operators and not-so-good operators,” she said. “But you can’t tar everybody with the one or two that need a lesson in management.”

Conditions The three conditions require that Wooly Bully’s: Maintain a daily incident log that tracks any problems and how the staff dealt with them. Prepare and maintain a manual outlining the policies and procedures used in the business. Keep a record of who is entering the club by scanning patrons’ identifications and maintaining a list of banned patrons.

You wouldn’t imagine school ceilings to be the place where long-lost treasures are found. But the construction crew renovating Archbishop MacDonald High School got a surprise last year when a purse more than 40 years old was found hidden in the ceiling tiles. The purse’s contents identified Wanda Szatkowski, now McTavish, a resident of New Westminster, B.C., as the owner. “The purse is probably the most interesting piece that we have ever found in our schools,” said Lori Nagy, spokesperson for Edmonton Catholic Schools. “The thought that it stayed there for 43 years is amaz-

This purse was found in a city high school — 43 years after it went missing.

Ghosts, witches and sexy nurses will be wandering the streets of Edmonton this weekend but the one costume that might be seen the most is that of a cop. Edmonton Police Service spokesperson Clair Seyler said officers will be roaming the streets protecting revellers all weekend long. “We will be doing that (increasing manpower) over the weekend just because of the Halloween

parties that are going on in the entertainment districts,” Seyler said. “We’ll be increasing substantially the amount of police officers on foot.” Seyler said whether it’s Halloween or throughout the winter, people can blend in a lot more if they’re wearing a balaclava or a mask.

Al-Shabab is linked to Al Qaida and has carried out whippings, amputations and executions to enforce its own strict interpretation of Islam. Shortly before the executions, Sheik Mohamed Ibrahim sentenced the girls to death for spying for government soldiers fighting al-Shabab. The only qualifications Ibrahim needed to be appointed a judge by alShabab were that he be male and know the Qur’an. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hundreds of protesting actors and actresses, directors, screenwriters and other workers in the movie industry occupied the red carpet of the International Rome Film Festival on Thursday. The high-profile stunt was part of an ongoing dispute over government funding cuts to culture. The sign held by the protesters reads “There are working people in the end credits.”

Surkis expresses remorse in child pornography case Crown wants his sentence to send a clear message ANDY BLATCHFORD/THE CANADIAN PRESS

A former Quebec director of B’nai Brith said Thursday he’s deeply sorry for downloading child pornography and recognizes the impact his actions have had on his family. Bill Surkis expressed remorse during his sentencing hearing in Montreal. The former Jewish community leader, who pleaded guilty in May to one count each of accessing and possessing child pornography, will be sentenced Dec. 9. But the Crown wants to send a clear message to the public that downloading and possessing child pornography only serves to fund an industry that

profits from exploiting young children. To that end, they want to have Surkis, 71, declared a registered sex offender, which is a sticking point in the sentencing. The Crown and defence

have agreed that Surkis should receive the minimum sentence allowed by law — a 45-day jail term, to be served on weekends. There would be 240 hours of community service and three years probation. The Crown’s request that Surkis be registered as a sex offender and have his DNA taken has been dismissed by Surkis and his lawyer as unnecessary and punitive. “That would put me in a position where I would not be able to serve my community,” Surkis said. “I downloaded videos, yes, but I am not a sex offender.”

Eight Finger Eddie’s time had come and gone. When the 85-year-old, touted as the godfather of Goa’s hippie scene, died last week in a beachside village in Goa, the Indian

Scientists say they’ve found the first complete skeleton of a dinosaur that is an ancestor to the sauropod, the largest creature ever to walk the planet. The 30-foot-long skeleton, complete with skull, may help reveal the story of how the 120-foot-long, giant-necked sauropods evolved and became solely plant eaters. The bones were found in southern China, Texas Tech paleontologist Sankar Chatterjee said Thursday. He planned to present preliminary findings of the discovery Sunday at the Geological Society of America meeting in Denver. “It’s like a manuscript. Many pages are missing. We are still trying to piece it together,” Chatterjee said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PROTESTS WEAKEN CHRISTOPHE ENA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

French strikes fail to draw large numbers of people as they did previously Demonstrations by train and oil workers tapering off Strikes caused hassles for air travellers in France on Thursday, but nationwide street protests over a plan to raise the retirement age to 62 failed to draw the massive crowds of weeks’ past — a sign of slackening resolve among the bill's opponents. Parliament has already approved raising the retirement age from 60 to 62, but union leaders insist they will not give up their fight until conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy actually signs the bill. Still, fewer protesters followed them into the streets this time, and strikes by train and oil workers have been tapering off in recent days. In Paris, demonstrators waved union flags and set off flares, while in southern Marseille, they beat

drums and blew whistles. Past demonstrations have drawn more than a million protesters into the streets; this time, the Interior Ministry put the figure at 560,000 nationwide. The hard-line CGT union contested that number, putting turnout at 2 million. “It’s true you could say the anti-reform movement is slowing down, but you need to ask why,” Serba Germain, a 67-year-old retired police officer marching in Marseille, told Associated Press Television News. “People are disappointed, they are frustrated” because the government

hasn’t listened. Unions and opposition parties urged Sarkozy not to sign the law, which polls show is unpopular. He is expected to do so by mid-November, after it is cleared by France’s constitutional watchdog. But Sarkozy has refused to back down, even amid two weeks of strikes that cancelled trains, shut down oil refineries and left drivers struggling to find gasoline. A small number of trains were cancelled Thursday, but the problem was bigger for airlines. A third of flights at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport and half of those at the city’s smaller Orly were cancelled. Flights were expected to run as normal Friday.

A demonstrator holds a French President Nicolas Sarkozy mask during a protest in Paris, Thursday, as part of the seventh day of action against the pensions reform law.

Bin Laden recording authentic: Ministry A newly released audio tape of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden threatening France appears to be authentic, the French Foreign Ministry said Thursday. The voice on the audio tape threatens to kill French citizens to avenge their country’s support for the war in Afghanistan and in revenge for a new French law that will ban burqa-like Muslim veils. The audiotape was obtained by the Al-Jazeera television station. The Foreign Ministry says the tape’s “authenticity can be considered established based on initial verifications.” The message “only confirms that reality of the terror threat,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said. A series of terror warnings has put France and other European countries on high alert in recent weeks, prompting the U.S. State Department to advise American citizens liv-

Volcano’s guardian killed by eruption For 33 years, Maridjan spoke to Mount Merapi, believing he could appease its unpredictable spirits by throwing offerings of rice, clothes and chickens into the volcano’s gaping crater. Many villagers took his word — not that of government officials or seismologists — as the last on when it would erupt. And the 83year-old did appear to predict the volcano’s latest eruption — which killed 33 people this week — but did not heed the warning. As thousands of villagers streamed down the mountain’s slopes, Maridjan refused to budge. More than a dozen people stayed, and perished, with him. His rigid body was found yesterday, prostrate on the ground in the typical Islamic prayer position and caked in white soot. On Thursday, high-profile politicians, soap opera stars, singers and hundreds of followers flocked to his funeral on the slopes of the mountain. Maridjan was a constant

On Pagai Seatandug island, the wave deposited giant chunks of coral and rocks the size of people into the places where homes once stood in Pro Rogat village, one of the hardest-hit areas with 65 dead.

Indonesian officials are left questioning whether the tsunami warning system functioned properly in the face of Monday’s devastating wave. The chief of Indonesia’s Meteorology and Geophysic Agency, Fauzi, said the special buoys that detect sudden changes in water level broke down last month because of inexperienced operators and poor maintenance. However, Joern Lauterjung, head of the GermanIndonesia Tsunami Early Warning Project for the Potsdam-based GeoForschungs Zentrum, said a warning did go out five minutes after the quake — but the tsunami hit so fast no one was warned in time. “The early warning system worked very well — it can be verified,” he said. He said only one sensor of 300 had not been working, and it had no effect on the system’s operation.

Rescue teams losing hope of finding missing Wall of water, created by a 7.8-magnitude quake, crashed into west Indonesian islands Monday

Rescuers searching islands ravaged by a tsunami off western Indonesia raised the death toll to 370 Thursday as more corpses were wrapped in body bags or buried by neighbours. Officials said hundreds of missing people may have been swept out to sea. Elsewhere in Indonesia, the volcano that killed 33 people earlier this week began erupting again, though there were no reports of new injuries or damage. Mourners held a mass burial Thursday during a lull in Mount Merapi’s rumblings. The twin catastrophes struck within 24 hours in different corners of the seismically charged region,

Health care spending going up – and down Belt-tightening by provinces behind shrinking rate, expert says Lowest growth rate ‘in last 13 years’ Total health-care spending in Canada this year is predicted to reach almost $192 billion, up almost five per cent over 2009, says a report by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. The 155-page report, released Thursday, says that figure translates into about $5,600 for each man, woman and child in the country. “Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen the growth in health-care spending over and above population growth and inflation,” said Chris Kuchciak, manager of health expenditures for CIHI. “However, what’s differ-

“There were significant investments in health care. But now fiscal positions have changed.” CHRIS KUCHCIAK

ent this year is that the growth rate in 2009 and 2010 seems to be decelerating.” Actual per capita healthcare spending is expected to rise by just 1.4 per cent this year, Kuchciak said. “The growth rate of 1.4 per cent is actually the lowest growth rate in the last 13 years.” Kuchciak said a number

of factors are likely behind the shrinking rate, including belt-tightening by provinces. A similar squeeze on spending occurred during the mid-1990s, a period of restraint when the growth in health spending was either flat or negative, he said, noting that the trend was reversed in the late ’90s, when governments made a concerted effort to boost allocations to health. The report shows health-care spending is expected to account for 11.7 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product in 2010, down from 11.9 per cent in 2009. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Re: What do you do when joke’s on you? (Oct 28) TORONTO. The article by Mr.

Mazerolle contains some significantly offensive remarks. In particular, he likens feelings, when he failed to succeed as a standup comic, to “something akin to a kid who drops his ice cream combined with those Palestinian women you see mourning on television.” This remark is offensive on many levels, but in particular it is demeaning and dismissive of women suffering the loss of loved ones during a war. The referral to the “Palestinian women” in this context implies that they, and

their grief, are somehow lesser, and mocks their reactions to their losses. I doubt Mr. Mazerolle would have made a similar reference to mourning Canadian women. His use of the grief of these women in this context serves to dehumanize them and is certainly not funny. The use of the reference to the Palestinian women in conjunction with a dropped ice cream cone is a further degradation to the plight of these women, which should be considered separately from their context in the political arena in the Middle East.

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

Playing a hiker with his arm pinned under a boulder for five days brought its own set of challenges for James Franco, who stars as Aron Ralston in Danny Boyle’s true-life 127 Hours. The first thing he had to worry about, though, was his waistline. “He told me I should go on a diet,” Franco says of his first meeting with the director. “First of all, Aron was in great shape, but also he lost 40 pounds while he was

there, from water deprivation mostly.” Of course, recreated a rapid weight loss during the film’s production wasn’t feasible, so Franco shed as much weight as he could before filming, then relied on some helpful tools to bulk back up when needed. “We actually even built this prosthetic that we ended up unfortunately calling ‘the plumper,’” he says. “It was just this mouthpiece that would plump my cheeks out for the early parts of the film, and then as he started deteriorating we could use smaller and smaller versions until we

didn’t use any.” One useful tool for capturing Ralston’s ordeal was the extensive video diary he kept. “When we watched the real videos, one of the more powerful things about them is how simple it was and how direct and connected it was,” Franco remembers. “Some of the video messages are verbatim what he actually said,” Franco says. However, as an actor, he wasn’t interested in just regurgitating Ralston’s words. “Our whole kind of approach — not just for the video messages but in general — was that we would

127 Hours not typical acting role for Franco

honour Aron’s story and we would do everything that he did, but also we wanted to kind of have our own approach to the story,” he explains. “And so with the video messages, they were scripted, but I felt like Danny gave me the freedom to be just a little loose with the words. But every once in a while there’d be a line in there and I’d say to myself, ‘I just won’t say that because it’s kind of stupid.’ And then Danny would come to me and say, ‘Well, actually, for whatever reason, Aron is insistent that you say those two words.’”

James Franco is the first to admit 127 Hours isn’t your typical film, since it wasn’t his typical acting job, either. “There were a lot of things that were unusual,” he says. “I mean, you don’t usually spend most movies with an armed pinned behind a boulder. But then you also don’t spend most movies alone or without other actors. So all of that took adjusting.” Franco has been making a lot of adjustments lately, choosing career moves that have surprised onlookers — including his recent stint on General Hospital and his return to school. But he claims he’s not in a “why not?” phase of his career.

The cinematic adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy kicked off with a bang thanks to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,

which was excellent. Sadly, it ends on a whimper with this disappointing movie. While the first film offered delightfully trashy sex-fueled intrigue, the sequels have gone for an irritating mix of ill-conceived action movie theatrics and endless exposition. This 2.5 hour conclusion is primarily dedicated to characters explaining the plot of the previous two movies and somehow the

story arc of the series still doesn’t quite make sense – and that’s a difficult feat. Lead actors Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist are still compelling screen presences portraying intriguing characters, but even they are drowned out by all the exposition. The actors seem bored by the material this time and understandably so; audiences will likely feel the same way.

Good acting not enough Conviction Genre: Drama Director: Tony Goldwyn Stars: Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell 881⁄2

You cannot deny that Conviction is a compelling tale. Based on the true story of Betty Anne Waters, a Massachusetts woman who believed so strongly her incarcerated brother was innocent of murder, she became a lawyer with the

sole purpose of freeing the sibling. That’s pretty impressive. Beyond their performances though, Conviction rarely rises above the level of an impressive Law & Order episode. STEVE GOW

Funny man Ferrell gets animated Former SNL star takes on role of an inept evildoer Actor enjoyed freedom he had with character STEVE GOW

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Will Ferrell is such a humble guy that when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s asked what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to lead a big animated comedy like Megamind, the affable actor quickly diverts the attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really consider myself front and centre of this fine cast,â&#x20AC;? said Ferrell before noticing a giant

Always a Joker We hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a lot of tight leather pants in a vault,â&#x20AC;? said Will Ferrell when asked what traits he shares with supervillain Megamind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear them. I just keep them there and there is a part of my body â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into detail on â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is blue.â&#x20AC;?

banner over his shoulder clearly focusing on the titular character. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I guess I am front and centre.â&#x20AC;? Indeed he is. Ferrell is the voice of Megamind, a blue-skinned supervillain that suddenly defeats his nemesis and finds himself in the unlikely role of public defender. It may be his second animated feature (after Curious George), but the movie does mark a first for the funnyman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time (my kids) have commented on something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in,â&#x20AC;? laughed Ferrell admitting his children didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily affect his choice in the role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was just kind of a decision based pretty much on wanting to try and do another animated movie and getting the chance to work with (director) Tom (McGrath) so my

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is going to have to add lullabies to her repertoire. The superstar singer confirmed on NBC’s Today show Thursday that she and husband Nick Cannon are expecting their first child. Carey says the baby is due in the spring. Carey had declined to discuss her pregnancy, the subject of rampant speculation for months, until now. “Yes, we are pregnant, it’s true,” she said in an interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that was shown on Today. “It’s been a long jour-

ney, but it’s been tough because I’ve been trying to ... hold on to a shred of privacy, and that was not easy.” Carey, 40, and Cannon, 30, have been the subject of a baby watch since they got married after a whirlwind romance two years ago. They laughed off the rumours when they occurred soon after their wedding. “We thought it was fun, because they kept saying, ‘Oh she’s pregnant.’ Yeah, whatever. So we took the test and it was positive,” she said. But Carey had a miscarriage soon afterward. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A new side of Sarah

Whatever you may think of Sarah Palin, the fact remains Alaska is magnificent with her as its presenter. Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alaska, premiering on TLC on Nov. 14, adds TV host to Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crowded resume, which already includes former governor, former GOP vice-presidential candidate,

bestselling author and conservative superstar. Palin also is a wife, a mother of five and a grandmother, of course, and her new series integrates her home life with Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great outdoors. Judging from the first of eight episodes, Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alaska keeps politics

out of the picture. Sure, the show is effective in selling the Palin brand. But along the way, Palin throws herself into selling the grandeur of Alaska. The much-anticipated documentary series, shot last summer, is based at Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakeside home in Wasilla. There, cupcakes

are baked and kids do their chores (or hear about it from Palin). Then Palin sets off, with family members in tow, on a jaunt such as salmon fishing on Big River Lake, where, almost within reach at the shoreline, a family of bears keeps them amused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girls, when you cast,

Any parent will instantly relate. Later in the program, Palin demonstrates mettle (and alarm) as she goes rock-climbing with her husband, Todd, at Denali National Park â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and gets stuck midway. The guide calls down instructions and encouragement, but Palin is stalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like heights!â&#x20AC;? she declares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so cocky â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m being punished for it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I can do this!â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a remarkable admission from this famously can-do personality, and, as viewers are informed, some 45 minutes pass before she figures out how to continue her ascent. Then she does it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much worse than I ever thought it would be!â&#x20AC;? she says after reaching the summit. The series is produced by Mark Burnett, whose many credits include Survivor and The Apprentice. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, he marveled at how gung-ho all the Palins were in taking part.

McGinniss, the bestselling author of books including The Selling of the President and Fatal Vision, is never mentioned by name, and his face is blurred as the camera catches a glimpse of him over the fence. But Todd Palin explains, “Our summer fun has been kind of taken away from us because of a new neighbour next door who’s writing a hit piece on my wife.”

(In an interview with the AP in September as he packed to leave after three months of research, McGinniss wouldn’t reveal what his book about Palin will say. But he said he chose her as a subject because, “I wanted a reason to come back to Alaska,” where he lived in the 1970s while researching an earlier book, Going to Extremes. He said he rented the house after its owner sought him out, not to spy on the Palin family.)

Arquette defends his confessions David Arquette says he hopes talking openly about his separation from Courteney Cox can help others in similar situations. “A lot of people are going through stuff like that, and it just helps to kind of hear a celebrity that’s experiencing the same kind of things,” Arquette said in an interview with The Associated Press. Arquette, 39, and Cox, 46, confirmed their separation earlier this month after 11 years of marriage. They have one child. Arquette, who starred in the Scream movies and Never Been Kissed, has received some criticism for calling in to Howard Stern’s radio show since going public about the split from Cox and revealing intimate details of their relationship, such as why they separated and what their sex life was

like. Arquette most recently called in to Stern Wednesday morning. He says his latest on-air chat with Stern was a scheduled appointment and he didn’t want to break it. He also just wants to be honest with someone he trusts. “I love Howard Stern,” he said. “I think he’s the most honest journalist out there. ... He’s been so supportive of me and defended me. ... I didn’t want to let him down.” Arquette said he realizes he’s ruffled some feathers with his honesty: “I know I probably offend some people. I have been talking a little too much so I’m trying not to talk as much.” Arquette said one way he’s been able to divert from the separation from Cox is focusing on his professional career.

Got a big cat? Call Ryan Kwanten True Blood star Ryan Kwanten says he’s the “go to guy” when a production calls for working with panthers, though he has a healthy fear of them. Real panthers were used in the HBO series, and Kwanten said Thursday he was supposed to work with a panther in his new Australian Western Red Hill, until he learned the feline had turned on its owner in a deadly attack. Instead, Kwanten acted while writer/director Patrick Hughes pretended to be the feline off camera. Kwanten joked that it was his “finest bit of acting to keep a straight face and try

to stay in it while my director was licking his paws and carrying on.” Another panther was filmed for scenes added in later. Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse in True Blood, said the hairs on his back stand up when panthers are on the set, but the animals are always chained. “You’re definitely on your toes” when working with the big cats, he said. He likens a panther growl to a cat’s purr amplified a thousand times. It evokes a “primeval kind of feeling,” he said. Red Hill debuts in theatres Nov. 5. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pasta problems? We got you covered LARRY CROWE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

How to cook, dress and eat every pasta in every shape Chances are you know linguine goes with clam sauce and fettuccine loves Alfredo. But which pasta pairs with pesto? Or a hefty carbonara? “Pasta has evolved over many hundreds of years in Italy and it's taken a long time for them to work out what tastes best,” says British chef Jacob Kenedy, co-author with graphic designer Caz Hildebrand of The Geometry of Pasta. Together they are advocates of a simple truth: Pasta and sauce, correctly paired, yield a sublime experience. They had plenty of material to work with. More than 300 shapes of pasta exist, each with a specific texture and strategy for delivering flavours. In general, lighter sauces pair well with thin pastas. Oily, punchy sauces go with thicker pastas. Sauce will cling to a rough-textured pasta, such as a ridged penne, Kenedy says, while a smoother one like spaghetti will create a more delicate dish. Short tubes and cup shapes are good for “sauces with bits in them,” Kenedy says, such as those with diced meat or vegetables. “More intricate shapes are quite fun to play with,” he says. “It’s like when you’re a little kid and you put things in your mouth.” Which doesn’t mean you need to fill your cupboard

The bowtie shape of farfalle pasta helps carry plenty of sauce as well as the pieces of meat to your mouth.

3 life

Ingredients : • 250 g (1/2 lb) farfalle pasta • 75 ml (5 tbsp) heavy cream • 50 g (1 3/4 oz) prosciutto, sliced into 1-cm (1/2-inch) strips • Generous 125 ml (1/2 cup) grated Parmesan, plus extra to serve • 2 egg yolks • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

with dozens of different pastas. But at least make room for a few new ideas. “It's a shame not to feel encouraged to try some of these amazing shapes,” says Hildebrand. Farfalle With Prosciutto and Cream

Preparation:

1

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente (still barely firm at the centre) according to package directions.

2

While pasta cooks, in a large bowl, combine cream, prosciutto, Parmesan and egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper.

3

Drain farfalle and toss into sauce. Serve with extra cheese. Makes 4 servings.

Halloween

Don’t be tricked by unsafe treats An adult should always inspect the treats that children collect when they go door-to-door on Halloween night, says a reminder posted Monday by Health Canada: “Parents or caregivers are encouraged to remind kids not to accept — and especially not to eat — homemade candy or baked goods.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Grilled ham and cheese This sensational sandwich is a perfect snack to serve hungry weekend luncheon guests on a fall day. It is grilled cheese at its finest. The tapenade can be made up to a week ahead, if desired.

2

Preheat indoor grill or panini pan to low heat. Slice ciabatta bread straight across into round disks, about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick. Assemble each sandwich with Swiss cheese, ham and arugula.

Jackets spoil Hall’s night

No. 1 pick gets first goal for Oilers, but Columbus comes away with win Only 9,128 fans on hand in Ohio, a new low for the Blue Jackets PAUL VERNON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CANADIENS COACH JACQUES MARTIN ON GIVING GOALIE ALEX AULD HIS FIRST START OF THE SEASON FRIDAY.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

New deal for Girardi?

Shawn Horcoff and Columbus’s Anton Stralman chase the puck.

Nikita Filatov and Rick Nash scored in the shootout to overshadow Taylor Hall’s first NHL goal, leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. The game was played before 9,128 fans, the smallest crowd to watch the Blue Jackets at home. Hall, the acclaimed No. 1 pick in the June draft, tied it at 9:57 of the third period. He was in the crease to tip a shot by Theo Peckham. The 19-year-old star from Kingston, Ont., recorded his first point on an assist Oct. 10 against

OILERS

Florida. He also assisted on Shawn Horcoff’s first-period goal for the Oilers, who have lost six in a row and are 2-23-3 in their last 28 road games dating to mid-

December of last season. Samuel Pahlsson and Kyle Wilson had goals in regulation for the Blue Jackets, who have won three in a row and five of six. Steve Mason made 25 saves. In the shootout, Edmonton’s Sam Gagner went first and appeared to have scored after he got Mason down on the ice with a fake. But Mason reached back with his stick to flick the puck away at the last instant. Nash then buried a hard shot with very little deception, just past Devan Dubnyk’s blocker. Next up for the Oilers

was Gilbert Brule, a former No. 1 draft pick of the Blue Jackets who was traded after two largely unproductive seasons. He was roundly booed as he skated in on Mason, ripping a shot that clanged off the right post. Columbus then went with Filatov. He had fallen into disfavour a year ago under then-coach Ken Hitchcock, electing to return to play in his native Russia rather than go to the minors. Filatov carefully skated in on Dubnyk, faked and then netted a high backhander. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Favre goes boot-free NFL. Brett Favre was walking around the Minnesota Vikings practice facility Thursday without the oversized boot that has been protecting his injured left ankle. Favre suffered two fractures around the ankle in the game against Green Bay Sunday night, putting his league-record 291straight starts streak in jeopardy. The 41-year-old quarterback was not on the practice field during the portion open to the media Thursday. When asked if he thought he could play, Favre said, “I wouldn’t put anything past me, to be honest with you.”

Quoted

“He’s a veteran, he’s had to deal with this situation before but it’s definitely a challenge for him. We have four games this week and I thought it was time to give Auld a chance.”

Sports in brief

Matt Cain

Matt Cain shut down the Texas Rangers with the type of suffocating pitching that put the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. Two more games like this and they’ll win the World Series. Cain pitched four-hit ball for 7 2⁄3 innings, Edgar Renteria homered and

RANGERS

drove in three runs, and the Giants routed the Rangers 9-0 on Thursday

night for a 2-0 Series lead. Cain drew frenzied ovations from a crowd waving Halloween-coloured orange pompoms, and the Giants scored seven runs in the eighth — the biggest inning in their post-season history — a follow-up to their 11-7 win in the opener. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MLB. Joe Girardi and

the New York Yankees have agreed on the outline of a $9-million US, three-year contract for the manager, according to a baseball official familiar with the negotiations. Although the agreement is not complete, the sides “are dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s,” the person said Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Alderson made Mets GM MLB. Sandy Alderson

was chosen as the New York Mets general manager, and is now responsible for rebuilding a big-spending organization beset by problems on and off the field. Alderson will be introduced Friday at a Citi Field news conference, the team announced Thursday. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
