McGuinty hasn’t ruled out holiday JOHN R. KENNEDY/FOR METRO

Progressive Conservative MPP leading the charge Some military figures back private member’s bill Premier Dalton McGuinty isn’t ruling out a proposal to make Remembrance Day a statutory holiday in Ontario. The debate over whether to make Nov. 11 a public holiday is important, but it should be left to politicians in the provincial legislature, McGuinty said in Ottawa. “What I do like about it, is it’s an opportunity once again for us as a society to remember how important it is simply to remember, and to understand the many sacrifices that were made by previous generations,” he said. Progressive Conservative Lisa MacLeod, who is spearheading an effort to create the statutory holiday, said she is encouraged by the premier’s

Reality check

comments. “Not ruling this out in a very partisan environment is encouraging to me. I’m very gratified,” she said. “It appears that they’re looking at this bill as something they may want to run with themselves, and it certainly is consistent with the feedback and level of support I’m receiving across Ontario.” MacLeod, who represents the suburban Ottawa riding of Nepean-Carleton, introduced the bill last week. Debate on the bill could begin as soon as December, she said. Some high-profile military figures, such as retired major-general Lewis MacKenzie, have thrown their support behind MacLeod’s proposal. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Lisa MacLeod points out that if passed, her bill also requires every school to hold a Remembrance Day service on the last school day before Nov. 11.

Ontario families will “do the right thing” and honour Canada’s veterans if Nov. 11 becomes a statutory holiday, MacLeod said.

Hudak wants Grits to leave wife out of it

PC leader wants McGuinty campaign to avoid attacking wife Deb Hutton was adviser to Mike Harris TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE FILE

Most Canadian politicians would never dream of attacking an opponent’s spouse, but Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak is worried his wife will be considered fair game in the run-up to next year’s Ontario election. Hudak’s wife, Deb Hutton, was a senior adviser to former premier Mike Harris and a frequent target of political opponents during the Conservative government of the late 1990s. The day Hudak won the Progressive Conservative leadership in 2009, Liberal cabinet ministers handed out buttons with pictures of Hudak, Hutton and Harris under the banner “Team

Deb Hutton

3H: because we didn’t screw things up badly enough the first time.” “Of course it’s concerning, and of course it’s hard not to take it personally,” Hudak said yesterday of the attacks on his wife. “Debbie has made extraordinary sacrifices in her

own career to help raise our daughter, who is now three.” Families are off limits, and Premier Dalton McGuinty needs to make sure that message gets through to the Liberal campaign team, added Hudak. “I can only speak for myself, but there would be no way in hell that I would allow someone in my campaign to attack somebody else’s spouse,” he said. Just last month, the Liberals issued a release under the headline “Tories at the Trough,” which singled out four Conservatives, including Hutton, for “living the good life” at taxpayers’ expense.

cals found in junk food papers. “Those chemicals called PAPs move into food, make it into humans upon ingestion and metabolically are transformed into the PFCAs,” said Scott Mabury, the lead researcher and a professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto. The packages are lined with this chemical to act as a grease-proofing agent to keep water and fat from escaping. “Any kind of paperbased food packaging that comes into contact with food may contain these materials,” said Mabury.

A day after leaving his job as head of CBC Sports, Scott Moore is joining Rogers Media. Rogers Media president Keith Pelley also announced that Leslie Sole has been promoted to chief content officer. Moore will oversee Rogers’ television holdings including Citytv, Sportsnet and OMNI and all its radio properties. The move is a return to Rogers for Moore, an award-winning producer who previously headed up Rogers Sportsnet before joining CBC. Moore announced Tuesday that he was leaving his job as executive director of CBC Sports and general manager of the CBC Revenue Group, a move that is likely to renew speculation that CBC may lose Hockey Night in Canada when its current deal with the NHL expires in 2014.

University of Toronto scientists have discovered chemical contamination in the blood of those who ingest foods wrapped in these papers. Perfluorinated carboxylic acids or PFCAs are the breakdown products from chemicals used in the manufacture of certain products, such as non-stick pans, clothing and food packaging. These PFCAs have been discovered in humans and have been worrying scientists for years.

The couple, David and Delores Langer, had posted bail for Makhniashvili after he was charged with stabbing a neighbour in May. The couple did not know Makhniashvili before that incident, and pulled their bail promise after Makhniashvili told local media he was suspicious of the motives of David Langer, who is a private detective. The Langers have said they were only trying to help and felt hurt by his suspicions. Mariam was 17 when she went missing after arriving at Forest Hill Collegiate Sept. 14, 2009. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Poll unveils Six Nations pessimistic men killed Americans in car crash Most Americans doubt President Barack Obama and resurgent Republicans can work together to solve the nation’s problems, a new AP-GfK poll shows. In fact, many lack confidence that last week’s elections will change much of anything. Only about half expect the GOP’s policies to improve the economy.

Police say two men from the Six Nations reserve died when a car hit a utility pole in Brant County. Paul Edward Laforme Jr., 21, and Ernest William Silversmith, 27, were killed west of Bateman Line. Another Six Nations resident, Rayal Anderson, 21, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

A Canadian flag welcomes Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife, Laureen, to Seoul, South Korea.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife, Laureen, stepped off the plane in South Korea yesterday and into a raging debate about how to revitalize the global economy. In two Asian summits this week, Harper is pushing for bold, co-ordinated economic action — first at the Group of 20 summit in Seoul, and then at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Yokohama, Japan. Harper has set a high bar for success at this week’s G20 summit — one that looks increasingly hard to reach. Harper wants to see concrete commitments from the world’s key economic actors. But momentum for a deal on how to stabilize the global economy at the

Hectic agenda Harper has a jam-packed schedule, meeting one-on-one with about 15 heads of state. He wants to push for commitments to keep deficits under control and allow exchange rates to float freely. He will also be asking for help on dealing with human smuggling.

Seoul summit is flagging. “I strongly believe that co-operative and co-ordinated actions are both in our national interests and will lead to a stronger global economy,” Harper told his G20 colleagues in a letter sent last week. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Students’ comments Q: What do you think about the increase of university fees?

Vicqui

Britain’s National Union of Students says it will try to recall legislators from the party who vote in favour of a hike

AGE 19, HUDDERSFIELD UNIVERSITY STUDENT

Sylvain AGE 20, KENT UNIVERSITY STUDENT

“I don’t think it is fair. The rise of university fees means that only rich people can go to university, and it is gonna be a disaster for poor students who intend to go to university.”

“The increase of tuition fees will definitely put a lot of financial burdens on me and my family. Now I have to spend more time on finding a part-time job and making money, rather than studying.”

Tens of thousands of students marched noisily through London yesterday against plans to triple university tuition fees, and some tried to occupy the headquarters of the governing Conservative party in the largest street protest yet against the government’s sweeping austerity measures. Organizers said 50,000 students, lecturers and supporters were demonstrating against plans to raise the cost of studying at a university to 9,000 pounds a year — three times the current rate. Violence flared as a handful of people smashed windows in a highrise that houses Conservative headquarters, as others lit a bonfire of placards outside. Office workers were evacuated as several dozen protesters managed to get

Eugene AGE 24, UNIVERSITY CAMPUS SUFFOLK STUDENT

Jessica AGE 20, KENT UNIVERSITY STUDENT

“More and more people will be cut out of the universities, not because they don’t want to go to universities, but because they can’t afford to go ...”

“It was a bad decision for society. If we can’t afford to go to universities, then who’s gonna become well-educated people and who’s gonna contribute to society with knowledge?” METRO LONDON

Britain’s Liberal Democrats, who are part of the coalition government with the Conservatives, pledged during the election campaign to abolish fees. “We will not tolerate the previous generation passing on its debts to the next, nor will we pick up the bill to access a college and university education that was funded for them,” said student union president Aaron Porter.

Organizers condemned the violence. Sally Hunt, general secretary of faculty group the University and College Union, said “the actions of a minority, out of 50,000 people, is regrettable.” Elsewhere, protesters were peaceful. Anna Tennant-Siren, a student at the University of Ulster in Coleraine, said, “Politicians don’t seem to care. They should be taking money from people who

PROTEST HIKES PETER MACDIARMID/GETTY IMAGES

PETER MACDIARMID/GETTY IMAGES

Student protesters smash windows and clash with police yesterday at Millbank Tower, home of the Conservative party headquarters in London, England.

While British tuition fees are modest compared to those at some U.S. colleges, British universities are public institutions. Opponents of the tuition increase have pointed out that Prime Minister David Cameron and other members of the government attended elite universities, such as Oxford and Cambridge, at a time when university education was free. The Labour government of prime minister Tony Blair introduced the first fees for students soon after he was elected in 1997. Scotland abolished tuition fees in 2000, and in the rest of Britain the cost is

Court hears of rape and drugs Accused kidnapper used God to justify his actions, Elizabeth Smart says He was ‘crude, self-serving’ JIM URQUHART/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Elizabeth Smart called the man accused of abducting her a crude, vulgar, selfserving person who used religion to justify his actions, including her kidnapping and rape. “He was his No. 1 priority, followed by sex, drugs and alcohol, but he used religion in all of those aspects to justify everything,” Smart told jurors. She finished her testimony in Salt Lake City after just 15 minutes of cross-examination by a lawyer for Brian David Mitchell, an itinerant street preacher accused of taking her from home at knifepoint in 2002, when

Brian David Mitchell

she was 14. Now 23, Smart was found with Mitchell in 2003. Smart has said she endured almost daily rapes and was forced to drink alcohol, use drugs and view pornography.

Yesterday she said: “God would never tell someone to kidnap her at knifepoint from their bed, from her sister’s side ... never continue to rape her and sexually abuse her.” Mitchell, 57, is charged with kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor across state lines. He was not in court to hear Smart testify. As on each previous day of the trial, he was removed for disrupting the proceedings by singing hymns. He watches the trial on closed-circuit television from a holding cell. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Mob clan takes new hit Nicolo Rizzuto, the reputed patriarch of Canada’s most famous Mafia family, has been shot and killed, a police source said. Police say an 86-yearold man died after being shot at his home in the north end of Montreal last night. They would not immediately identify the victim, but a source told The Canadian Press that the man struck by bullets was Rizzuto.

The Rizzuto clan, which once ruled over Canada’s underworld, has been decimated in recent months. Since last year, the family and its associates have been targeted in a series of slayings, which crime analysts say are an attempt to destabilize its hold on power. Last night’s killing, if confirmed, drives a definitive nail into the coffin of a once-formidable crimi-

nal organization. Reputed crime boss Vito Rizzuto, Nicolo’s son, is in a U.S. jail. In August 2009, Federico del Peschio, 59, a Rizzuto family friend, was shot to death in north-end Montreal. Four months later, Nicolo Rizzuto Jr., the son of Vito Rizzuto, was gunned down during lunch in a gritty west-end neighbourhood. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Supporters of former legislators carry banners calling for the Afghan government to clamp down on fraud in government as they protest against the results of recent parliamentary elections, in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, yesterday.

U.S. lawmakers wary of Afghan corruption 99 39

THIS WEEKEND ONLY! FRI., NOV. 12 TO SUN., NOV. 14, 2010 EACH

President Hamid Karzai has claimed flood of money into Afghanistan has fostered corruption Afghan President Hamid Karzai must curb corruption in his government or current gains being made on the battlefield could be lost, a group of U.S. lawmakers warned yesterday on a visit to Afghanistan. Ahead of a meeting with Karzai, Senator John McCain, the senior Republican on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, said he and three of his colleagues will express their concerns about rampant

bribery and graft in the Afghan government. “We are concerned about continuing corruption at all levels of government,” McCain said. “We know that without addressing this very serious issue, long-term success is jeopardized.” McCain, who was in Kabul with three other senators, said the tens of thousands of U.S., NATO and Afghan troops who have been fighting in Tal-

iban strongholds in the south have made progress, but significant challenges remain. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Iran loses bid for seat on UN Women’s board AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Iran lost its bid yesterday for a seat on the board of the new UN agency to promote equality for women to East Timor after strong opposition from the United States and human rights groups to Tehran’s treatment of women. Iran, which recently sentenced 43-year-old Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani to death by stoning for adultery, had been among the 10 nations on an uncontested slate put forward by Asian nations for elections to the board of UN Women until East Timor announced its candidacy in recent days. Iranian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi told reporters Tuesday that “membership of countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia on this board is like a joke.” The stoning sentence

World Series win may lure youth, researcher says 16deadinmates after New study suggests thousands of Quebecers are at risk of becoming pathological gamblers

A new study suggests that nearly 70 per cent of adults in Quebec spent money on gambling last year. The survey of nearly 12,000 people also indicates that Quebecers spend an average of nearly $500 each on gambling every year. Dr. Sylvia Kairouz, a Concordia University professor and one of the study’s lead researchers, says nearly 1.3 per cent of the province’s adult population is at moderate risk of developing a gambling problem. Kairouz told a news con-

70 A new study suggests that nearly 70 per cent of adults in Quebec spent money on gambling last year. ference in Montreal yesterday that 0.7 per cent, or close to 41,000 Quebecers, could become pathological gamblers. The study was conducted between June and September 2009 and is the first part of a five-year survey. Kairouz also said online gambling has become

much more popular in recent years. Dr. Louise Nadeau, a Montreal psychologist and a co-researcher of the study, told the news conference she believes many young people will probably turn to poker after Quebecer Jonathan Duhamel’s $8.94-million bonanza at the World Series of Poker earlier this week. “And they’re going to lose because they’re not good at it,” Nadeau said. “You know what? For most people, losing is the best teaching lesson.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Deserving? Some rights groups were also upset that Saudi Arabia, where women are not allowed to drive and are barred from many facilities used by men, Libya, where Moammar Gadhafi has been in power for more than 40 years, and Congo, where rape is widely used as a weapon of war, were on uncontested slates and won seats on the board.

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

for Ashtiani has raised an international outcry, embarrassing Iran. A resolution adopted by the General Assembly last year expressed “deep concern” at Iran’s increasing use of executions, death by stoning, torture, flogging and amputations, and its increasing discrimination against religious, ethnic and other minorities.

“I am not going to deny that there were several countries that are going to join the board of UN Women that have less than stellar records on women’s rights, and indeed human rights,” U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said, but the key issue for the U.S. was Iran’s defeat.

A bystander looks over the Tusket River bridge in Tusket, N.S., yesterday that collapsed from the strain of floodwaters.

Superbug cases up, Public Health says Canada now has eight recorded cases of NDM-1 highly drug-resistant superbug infections, up from three in late August, the Public Health Agency has confirmed. Four of the patients came from British Columbia, one from Alberta, two from Ontario and one from Quebec, said Dr. Michael Mulvey, chief of Antimicrobial Resistance and Nosocomial Infections at the federal agency. Two of the four — a 76year-old B.C. woman and a Quebec patient — died, although not directly from

What is it? NDM-1 is an enzyme recently found in several types of bacteria, including some strains of E. coli. NDM-1 — or New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase — makes the microbes resistant to most antibiotics. NDM-1 infections are not reportable, meaning doctors aren’t required to inform health officials about cases. But a group of 50 sentinel hospitals across Canada has been keeping track of cases since September 2009.

GM drives $2B profit Reports gains in North America

Explosive sales growth in China

CARLOS OSORIO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

General Motors CEO Dan Akerson announces plans to build a new Cadillac small car in Lansing, MIch.

Strong profits on new cars and trucks helped General Motors Co. earn $2 billion US in the third quarter, enhancing its appeal as it nears next week’s initial public stock offering. The earnings of $1.20 per share nearly match what GM made in the first two quarters of the year combined, aided by profits from overseas and healthy revenue from North America, the company said yesterday. The earnings were boosted by higher prices from newly introduced models such as the Buick

LaCrosse, a midsize luxury sedan. The results reversed a $908-million loss, or 73 cents per share, in the third quarter of last year, a short quarter for GM because it spent the first nine days in bankruptcy protection. The Detroit automaker posted $34.1 billion in revenue for the Julythrough-September quarter, up 35 per cent from the $25.1 billion in the shortened period last year. GM had said last week that revenue could reach $34 billion for the quarter. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CPP fund credits recovering market for gain The Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board holdings hit record high of $138.6B Compared to $123.8B one year ago PR DIRECT PHOTO/CPP INVESTMENT BOARD

FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS WANTED.

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board’s holdings reached a record high of $138.6 billion in its second quarter, helped by a rebound in stock markets that enabled the fund to push beyond its pre-recession high. “It’s an encouraging story for the Canada Pension Plan,” said David Denison, president and CEO of the CPP Investment Board — which invests money not required to pay benefits to millions of retired Canadians under the plan. “The biggest factor in the overall returns was the strength of the equity markets in the second quarter and around the world,” he

David Denison

said. “We had very strong performance in those markets.” The solid financial results improve the health and sustainability of the national pension plan and

makes it easier for its managers to invest money around the world to boost future performance. Far down the road, it could also make it easier for the plan to boost benefits or cut worker contributions if those policy changes are considered. The CPP fund manager had reached a record high of $127.7 billion in June 2008, just months before a crisis in the U.S. financial industry sparked a major global recession and sent stock values plunging by about a third. The fund has been trying to make up ground lost in the recession ever since. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sunscreen not an option Whale of a problem

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Worth mentioning Scientists say some whale species off the Mexican coast are showing signs of severe sunburn that may be caused by the damaged ozone layer’s decreased ability to block ultraviolet radiation. The seagoing mammals would be particularly vulnerable to the sun damage, in part because they need to spend extended periods of time on the ocean’s surface to breathe, socialize, and feed their young. Since they don’t have fur or feathers, that effectively means they sunbathe naked. As Laura Martinez-Levasseur, the study’s lead author, said: “Humans can

put on clothes or sunglasses — whales can’t.” Martinez-Levasseur, who works at Zoological Society of London, spent three years studying whales in the Gulf of California, the teeming body of water that separates Baja California from the Mexican mainland. Her study, published in the Proceedings of the Roy-

al Society B, seemed to confirm suspicions first raised by one of her whalewatching colleagues: The beasts were showing lesions associated with sun damage, and many of their skin samples revealed patterns of dead cells associated with exposure to the powerful ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun.

Poppies have been in the news all week, and for some very unpoppylike reasons. First, the good: Ottawa announced last month that it would extend a tax refund to the Royal Canadian Legion on its purchase of all poppies and wreaths. Then, the fist-shakingly awful: An employee at a U.K. clothing store was

asked to remove her poppy because it “wasn’t part of her uniform.” The company, Hollinger’s, has since backtracked and allowed poppies to be worn today only. If you haven’t already picked one up, find your closest legionnaire and sport your poppy proudly. Because it’s most assuredly part of our uniform. JORDANA DIVON

Sport your poppy proudly today.


BIO-FEN PLUSTM is a natural health product used in the treatment of hereditary androgenic alopecia (AGA) in adults (male or female pattern baldness.) It contains scientifically calculated proportions of extracts of fenugreek seeds, saw palmetto berries and flax lignans. Each are known to possess an inhibitor of the enzyme responsible for causing male or female pattern baldness. It also contains a mixture of B vitamins, folate and biotin to help metabolize these herbal extracts so that they are more bio-available, and to support the growth of strong and healthy hair.

How does BIO-FEN PLUSTM work? Specific compounds within the herbal extracts inhibit the 5-alpha-reductase (and therefore reduce DHT) to prevent or slow down the rate of hair loss. This process is the principle by which the prescription drugs such as Propecia (finasteride) work. However, BIO-FEN PLUSTM also contains additional compounds which remove excess cholesterol and testosterone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the building blocks of DHT. TM

BIO-FEN PLUS also contains vitamins to increase blood flow to the small capillaries that feed the hair roots, to deliver the active herbal compounds and remove waste. Therefore, BIO-FEN PLUSTM provides a natural, safer alternative to expensive drugs, and/or expensive & painful hair transplants. As with the prescription alternatives, results vary from person to person, and no one product will work for everyone.

How long must I use BIO-FEN PLUSTM ? BIO-FEN PLUSTM capsules are usually effective at stopping hair loss within the first two months. However, since healthy hair grows only about 1 cm each month, it may take up to three months before you notice that hair growth is increased or further hair loss is stopped.

Anyone experiencing new growth will see it within four to six months. Once results become apparent, some users are able to reduce their BIO-FEN PLUSTM supplement dose to one capsule every second or every third day. Some clients will continue to take BIO-FEN PLUSTM daily. Once you stop completely, however, your hair growth pattern will slowly go back to the point where you started.

How safe is BIO-FEN PLUSTM ? The ingredient combination in BIO-FEN PLUSTM is generally safe for most adults. However, the following cautions are advised: Folic acid: Consult a health care practitioner if you are uncertain whether or not you are taking adequate vitamin B12, as folate supplementation can mask a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B3: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have impaired liver function. Vitamin B6: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking levodopa.

What is the quality of BIO-FEN PLUSTM ? BIO-FEN PLUSTM is manufactured in Canada according to a quality assurance program called Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). This ensures that the ingredients are tested for their level of quality, potency & purity, prior to production and again prior to sale. See our website to locate your nearest Health Food Store or Pharmacy that offers BIO-FEN PLUSTM and other quality products from Hair Grow Technology. If you have any questions or comments about our products that target hair loss and support the growth of strong, healthy hair, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Los Angeles is a favourite target of disaster movies, and it reprises its role of being blown up when Skyline opens tomorrow.

Why destroying L.A. is so much fun Earthquakes, tsunamis and alien invasions – disaster movies love targeting the City of Angels Skyline is the latest movie to trash the city Los Angeles has the worst luck. Through decades of disaster films, the city has been targeted by aliens, toppled by temblors, sunken by tsunamis, levelled by lava, and a rogue tornado once took out the famous Hollywood sign. And so it will be that calamity again strikes the City of Angels in the new sci-fi film Skyline, opening tomorrow, followed by another bout of destruction early next year in the movie Battle: Los Angeles. What is it about L.A. that invites such repeated

devastation? “People love watching L.A. get destroyed,” says Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman. “It’s nice to screw up the great weather.” But there’s so much more to it than that. Los Angeles is a city many people love to hate, says Bob Birchard, an American Film Institute historian. “L.A. and certainly Hollywood have been associated in some people’s minds as a hotbed of the devil’s work, so that underlying element is part of the genre.”

That notion isn’t just implied in 1996’s Escape from L.A., where it becomes the “island of the damned” and “a deportation point for all people found undesirable or unfit to live in the new moral America.” Ultimately, heaving destruction on Los Angeles shows Hollywood’s sense of humour, sense of optimism and a real love for its sunny, palm-lined home. Greg Strause, one of the filmmakers behind Skyline, says the alien-invasion flick was inspired by the breathtaking view

L.A. in ruins

from his Marina del Rey condo. The invaders’ first target? Movie studios. “It’s a strange coincidence that the motherships descend on the studios first,” he says. Regardless of on-screen devastation, there’s always a message of hope, which USC pop-cultural historian Leo Braudy relates as one more reason to choose L.A. for digital disaster. “It’s an odd kind of Western optimism. We’re going to start over again, like a phoenix rising from its own destruction.”

Since 1952, Hollywood has been annihilating the city. From alien attacks to devastating earthquakes, L.A. has encountered it all on the silver screen. Here is a timeline of its big screen destruction.

Nora Ephron bids farewell to her memory In her new book, I Remember Nothing, the author of Heartburn and Crazy Salad writes about the way people and places fade away with age Nora Ephron is thinking about algorithms. She wonders what they are. It’s one of those concepts, such as Twitter and heavy metal, that exist only to remind her she has lived too long. Unsure of her own definition, she takes a little nip from that electronic flask in her

handbag, that digital demon rum: her iPhone. “Algorithm,” she reads, “a set of rules for solving a problem in a finite number of steps, as for finding the greatest common divisor.” Ephron, 69, is known for such books as Heartburn and Crazy Salad, and

for the movies Sleepless in Seattle and Julie & Julia. She has been writing about silly and serious matters for 50 years, from hooded seals to nuclear power plants to the silly and serious matters of men and women. She is back with I Remember Nothing, essays CHARLES SYKES/ASSOCIATED PRESS

Author Nora Ephron is back with her a new book entitled I Remember Nothing.

about family, journalism and everyday and eternal bothers. There are lists of what she'll miss (bacon, Paris) and what she won't (funerals, mammograms). Much of the book is a farewell to her own memory. She’s not writing about Alzheimer’s, but the way people and places and events fade as if erased from tape. This is a new kind of name-dropping. She can brag about having met the Beatles, but not about what they said. She doesn’t know. Same for Dorothy Parker and Eleanor Roosevelt. “It’s not that I don’t need to remember things, I just don’t remember them,” she says. She also doesn’t know if she’ll write another novel and doesn’t worry. She just likes the writing process. Ephron writes of summers in the Hamptons on Long Island when her children were little. She loved the sound of geese in midJuly. “[It was] one of the things that made the summers out there so magical.” Now, the geese remind her that summer will end, and so will everything else.

Walt Disney is returning Pooh and his friends to their hand-drawn roots for a new big screen adventure.

Winnie the Pooh kicks it old school Winnie the Pooh will be back to his old self again next year. Walt Disney Animation Studios is returning the honey-loving teddy bear and his pals to their handdrawn animated roots for a feature film dipping into theatres July 15, 2011. The new Winnie the Pooh, the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animators in more than 30 years, will more closely resemble the classic short films from the 1960s and ’70s. “We wanted to create a movie for the big screen that had the charm and wit of those original shorts,” said Peter Del Vecho, the film’s producer. “What originally endeared all of us to these characters was that they were stuffed animals that came to life in the imagination of a child. We wanted to rekindle that imagination in a big way.”

Winnie the Pooh, loosely based on five stories from A.A. Milne’s books, finds Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Owl, Eeyore and Christopher Robin searching for a new tail for Eeyore in a watercolour-drenched Hundred Acre Wood. The gang will also hunt for a mysterious creature called a Backson, briefly mentioned in the 1928 book The House at Pooh Corner. While this version of Pooh won’t be generated by a computer or projected in 3-D, Del Vecho cautioned it wouldn’t simply be a redux of past Pooh projects. He said the film, spearheaded by Disney and Pixar animation chief John Lasseter, will feature five new original songs and a faster pace punctuated with humour that’s appropriate for modern audiences.

the author’s death, the woman famous for her Emmy Award-winning impression of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. She thanked Palin and the Kennedy Centre for her success. SNL comics lined up to celebrate their colleague’s work over nine seasons. They played clips from her time anchoring Weekend Update and some of the commercials she wrote. Amy Poehler recalled

meeting Fey back when they were both part of The Second City improv group in Chicago in the 1990s. “Our dreams were as big as our unshaped eyebrows,” Poehler said. The humour prize honours those who define contemporary comedy. Last year, it went to Bill Cosby. Organizers said Fey made her mark as the first female head writer on SNL, not to mention her Palin impression and creating the NBC comedy series 30 Rock, in which she stars

with Baldwin. At 40, Fey is the youngest to be honoured with the award that was created in 1998. She’s also only the third woman to receive it after Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg. The show will be broadcast nationally Sunday on PBS. Kennedy Center Chairman David Rubenstein said the event raised a record $1.3-million for the centre with high demaºnd for tickets — especially from Alaska. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The release of Cee Lo Green’s F**k You on YouTube a couple of months back was a novelty sensation. Now it’s just annoying, especially when you hear your kids singing it. Fortunately, it’s not the only track on License to Kill, Cee Lo’s first solo album in more than six years. He continues in the same groove he found with the 2006 blockbuster Crazy, which he recorded under the name Gnarls Barkley with collaborator/ producer/DJ Danger Mouse. This time Cee Lo takes a definite retro turn, sounding like a ’50s or ’60s soul crooner in the style of Al Green (It’s O.K.) or the late Solomon Burke (No One’s Gonna Love You, Old Fash-

ioned). It’s all very irresistible and filled with celebratory lyrics (not counting the bizarre track Bodies), love-struck highs, swirling strings, catchy hooks, tasty horn riffs and call-and-response vocals. Let’s face it. Cee Lo not only has the material, he’s got the voice to pull it off.

And for those still stuck in 2007, the Crazy theme comes through loud and clear in the thrusting cadence of Fool For You. As a matter of fact, after you listen to the complete album a couple of times, you might even start liking F**k You again. Just don’t let your kids hear you singing it. Outstanding track: Fool for You

“I just remember her doing it [cocaine] as if she had been doing it for a long time,” Texas college student Brian Payne tells the magazine. “It didn’t seem like something new to her.” According to the website Gossip Central, Lovato opted for the Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center in Chicago, where she’s reportedly getting treatment.

Sorry if I’m going on a rampage right now, but this is America. The land of the free and the home of the brave.” Madonna also admitted that her teen years weren’t that easy either. “I have to say I never felt like I fit in in school,” she said. “There was no group that I felt a part of.

Her

mom, Tish, likes ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn,’ the first concert Miley ever saw was Poison, and so they wanted to remake it for the new record.” He claims his interactions with the family were purely professional. “When I was in the studio, Miley came in and sang on my song,” he says. “And that was it.” METRO

Adding a cheat sheet to winter beauty Beauty trends change at whiplash pace Factor in the coming cold weather and your beauty regimen can look dated We offer up tips on what to add to KENYA HUNT, GLOBAL FASHION DIRECTOR your beauty cabinet, and what to toss out. Toss: The heavy day cream

Up and down

Add: A hydrating serum NARS LIP GLOSS colour: Bougainville $24 nars.com

Designer kids Your tot’s wardrobe options just got bigger now that Stella McCartney has launched a children’s clothing line.

Skulls After the Hells Angels sued Alexander McQueen for illegal use of their skull head logo, they settled out of court. The fashion house has to recall and destroy all clothing that features the logo.

Toss: The clear lip lacquer

Pricey, fancy ingredient-packed face creams are old news. Most just sit on top of the skin without absorbing into the dry, scaly layer underneath. Instead, look for hydrating moisturizers with hyaluronic acid, which penetrates deeper into your skin and leaves your face looking – and feeling – much smoother.

Add: A wine lipstick or gloss REN DAY CREAM Generally speaking, wintertime is when all the red lips come out. But this season the colours are trending toward darker, rich shades. If you’re on Team Lipgloss, try NARS lipgloss in Bougainville, which leaves just a hint of plum. For those on Team Lipstick, have a look at MAC Cosmetics’ Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Faithfully Yours.

Osmotic Infusion Ultra-Moisture Day Cream $55 renskincare.com

Toss: The thick face paint

Toss: The pink nail polish

Add: A correcting foundation

Add: A tricked-out manicure

The sole purpose of makeup is to help you look and feel better – not worse. Yet many women wear skin-destroying foundations that clog pores and enhance the appearance of wrinkles. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle is not one of those foundations. Part of a new wave of makeup, this foundation does just about everything, from correcting dark spots, decreasing pore size, smoothing out wrinkles and even protecting the skin from damaging sun rays.

Nail art isn’t just trendy on the runways (Alexander McQueen) and in celebrity land (Beyoncé and Rihanna). It’s all over the street, too. Witness the massive success of the global salon chain, Minx. Don’t have one in your city? No worries! You can create the same look at home with DIY nail wraps.

Max Mara, home of the omnipresent camel coat, has produced a new line of over-achieving outerwear for its satellite line, ‘S collection. Called The Cube, the series features reversible, multifunctional quilted parkas, which all come with interchangeable accessories such as hoods, snoods, cuffs, gloves and shrugs. The beauty is that they are warm and

lightweight, dressy and sporty. The downside is that they cost about the price of two coats, starting at roughly $1,000. (Then again, you get multiple looks in one.)

Finally, a runway look for all the curvy girls. Many of the most stylish skirts this fall are full, flared and drop below the knee, evoking the 1950s and ‘60s in the latest round of ladylike-meetshigh-style silhouettes. Though the idea of a longer, looser skirt may make some think of a matronly grandmother, the glamorous 1960s characters of Mad Men, arguably TV’s greatest fashion influencers of the moment, have proved them wrong, says Stacy London, stylist and co-host of TLC’s What Not to Wear. “These are women who are so stunning,” she says. “One of the great things Mad Men has done in highlighting fashion is celebrating our curves again.” Another tastemaker —

AMC/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Betty Draper from Mad Men.

Oprah Winfrey — showed off the look on this year’s premiere of the farewell season of her talk show, wearing a white buttondown shirt tucked into an orange Carolina Herrera skirt. So for all the hourglassshaped women tired of fruitlessly trying to wrig-

gle into straight skirts or fit them to their hips only to have to take them in the waist, the trend is a wearable cause for celebration. The skirts not only show off a shapely woman’s peaks and valleys, they can also create the illusion of feminine contours on a straight body, London says. The look is “about creating and flattering curves,” says London, herself a curvy girl. “A lot of fashion is anti-curvy women. This is a skirt that's very translatable across body type and age.” “We're used to trends that need translating and tweaking before they're ready-made for real life,” she added. “We’re used to so much skin and trends that are overtly sexy.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Designer creates model suite that is neutral and relaxed but avoids feeling too cold or trendy

Shots of the model suite at OnePark West Boutique Condominiums & Townhomes.

An urban and

modern look SUITE TALK RAFAEL BRUSILOW HOME@METRONEWS.CA

Texture takes over from colour at OnePark West to create a look that entices. The three-bedroom model townhouse unit at the downtown-east development shows off how a modern space can really pop without resorting to

flashy colours and contrasts. Sarah Nelson, senior project designer with The Daniels Corporation, says the goal of the suite was to create an urban modern look without it being too cold or too trendy. “We wanted to create a modern and urban space that wasn’t too sterile or stark. A neutral palette really allows people to come

a light grey tone helps to soften the contrast between the white thermafoil cabinetry and darker elements in the kitchen. A tiny dash of colour in the bedrooms helps to keep the tone playfully elegant. Textures become the focal point in the suite as Nelson used varied surfaces and fabrics to create a satisfying sense of tactile discovery. Chenille, wool and cotton in furniture, carpeting and bedding mix with silk drapes and pillows to offer a pleasing mix of materials that also help to highlight the suite’s sleeker stone-andwood elements. “The textures tend to be coming from really usable, liveable fabrics. When you have that variety in textures, things that have more of a sheen tend to pop out more, and it’s nice to blend all those materials because it really adds a lot of dimension to the space,” Nelson said. Overall, Nelson took a less-is-more approach that

was as economical with accessories and colours as possible so as not to dominate the look of the suite. “The goal was to avoid cluttering the space by adding too many things that detract from our focal points. We wanted to create a mood that was quite relaxed without using too much colour to take away from that calming feel and to let the features in the room stand out more,” Nelson said.

NEIGHBOURS MUST WORK TOGETHER TO GET RID OF RACOONS AND OTHER PESTS I own a semi-detached century old home and have been approached by my neighbours with a problem. Apparently, they have raccoons in their attic which is attached to my attic. The pest control people have indicated that the entry spot for these troubling animals is on my side of the eaves but they are entertaining in the neighbour’s attic. They don’t really bother me. What are my obligations to my neighbours?

Your situation is a very common one in many urban centres. Raccoons and to a lesser extent, squirrels, can be extremely destructive and even dangerous. If a mother raccoon is cornered with her young cubs, she can be very aggressive. Your neighbours have done the correct thing by calling in pest control before winter sets in. The pest control must make sure the animals are no longer in the attic and then they need to disinfect the nest

As the spot where they gain access to the shared attic is on your side of the edifice, even though they are not bothering you, it would be in the interest of good neighbour relations

to assist them with the cost of removing the animals for good. I have heard unofficially that the city has intervened with particularly bad pest problems and forced the unresponsive neighbour to ante up when it comes to shared spaces and unwanted animal problems. Remember, you may be the next target of these urban bandits so by working together and making sure both your homes are free from access by any form of outside inhabitants, you

THE TRUTH ABOUT LYING ABOUT CHEATING

I

t seems that 56 per cent is the magic number these days. Last week I wrote about the Ontario Real Estate Association survey finding that 56 per cent of the home buying public mistakenly believes that the HST applies to resale homes. This week, the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) released survey results revealing that, you guessed it, 56 per cent of Ontarians admit to having

paid cash to avoid taxes for a renovation or repair job. When you stop and think about, 56 per cent is a staggering number of homeowners looking to cut the government out of the action and the number is probably even higher as I would expect some of the respondents would prefer to lie about cheating. Without condoning the practice, it’s hard to blame them, particularly in the aftermath of the HST

The OHBA is obviously concerned that the HST will fuel the underground economy, and is proposing a renovation tax rebate as a way of bringing these deals back above the table.

On that note, the same survey revealed that more than two-thirds (68 per cent) of homeowners said they would be less likely to pay cash if they were to receive a provincial or federal tax credit from the government. “If a rebate system was in place, it would encour-

Ten questions to ask your builder Home buyers may assume their new home is energyefficient, but the best way to be sure is to talk to your builder. Here is a list of questions you may ask your builder. • Any builder can claim to build energy-efficient homes. How do I know

your homes are truly energy efficient? • Since all builders must meet the requirements of the building code, what makes your homes different from other builders’ homes? • How do your building techniques reflect the lat-

PHASE 2 OF THIS MASTER-PLANNED COMMUNITY ON SHEPPARD ACROSS FROM FAIRVIEW MALL IN NORTH YORK

Harmonize a hectic home Turn your home into a sanctuary with these tips LINDA LABAN

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

Sensory overload in the 21st century means that now, more than ever, a home needs to be a retreat where one can recharge. There’s more to turning your abode into a sanctuary than buying a Buddha statue and scented candles, though. Interior designer Stephanie Rossi, of Spazio Rosso Interior Design, helps us harmonize a hectic home.

EASY ACCESS TO THE SHEPPARD SUBWAY AND FAIRVIEW MALL

Rossi’s tips 1. “Is all of your furniture smack up against the wall? That’s the No. 1 mistake homeowners make. Utilize the entire room, not just the periphery, and you’ll be surprised by how much better things feel. The room will develop its own feng shui; the eye will flow throughout the room.”

Artist’s concept

2. “Closet disorganization leads to household disorganization, as clutter over-

Moving the sofa away from the wall will help develop the room’s feng shui, says Rossi.

flows into other parts of your house. Closets are wasteful spaces if they are not organized. Installing shelves, drawers, hanging rods, etc. is easy to do yourself — or you can hire a company. The results will bring you many years of organizational heaven.” 3. “I don’t know what’s happened to our society. We

live with overabundance, but adding more things to our homes than we need brings disharmony. “Only buy what you need. Then put your mind to it and clean out your home. If you don’t need it, donate it to Goodwill and feel good about that wasteful purchase. “It’s such a breath of fresh air to live with less.”

Recently we noticed a bumper crop of circles, spots and dots have popped up, decorating everything from fabrics to furniture. This geometric feature became popular after the 1950s op-art movement, which was spearheaded by such circle-loving abstract artists as M.C. Escher, Kenneth Noland and Claude Tousignant. Eye-popping, brain-beguiling op art became a mainstream element in the 1960s pop-art and mod culture explosions. What we love is whether it’s a swirling display or a dotty, spotty mass, circles add a playful, lively element to a room.

Transform old items into stylish home accessories Steven and Chris offer alternatives to throwing out those knick-knacks gathering dust in the basement Viewers of CBC’s daytime show, Steven and Chris, can actively engage the design duo on their home décor queries and conundrums. Their daily Ask Steven and Chris segment addresses questions submitted online — photos, floorplans and colour preferences are welcome. The guys say they love answering questions from their audience at home and providing practical, affordable and stylish answers to everyday décor questions. Sometimes, they respond with a completely new idea — other times they simply offer a different way of looking at things. For this holiday season, Steven and Chris have some crafty, budget-conscious décor tips for re-

vamping old items and giving them new life: Festive decorations:

Instead of throwing away those knick-knacks buried in the basement, look out for interesting shapes (owls are big this year) and spray them with this season’s hottest colours: matte white or gold. Voila! You’ve transformed them into stylish home accessories to use as centerpieces or adorn side tables. This is another trick for refreshing old and worn tree ornaments. DIY pillow covers:

What doesn’t work on the body can look great on the couch. Collect those stretched-out cable knit sweaters from the bottom of the closet and transform them into beautiful knit pillows to adorn the sofa.

Create pops of colour by closing the opening with grosgrain or velvet ribbons. The boys call it recycling chic! Make a memory:

What better way to make your house feel like a home than to create a memory wall of all your favourite photos and treasured possessions. Think about mixing old black and white photos with travel mementos and seas shells mounted in shadow boxes. Not only will your family feel honoured, it’s a great conversation piece — or even a gift idea.

Sowing your old seeds

DEAN FOSDICK/AP PHOTO

Don’t toss those leftover seed packets In many cases old seeds can be successfully germinated Still, it’s prudent to do a germination test Cooks aren’t the only ones who create leftovers. Gardeners end up with them, too — frequently, unused seeds. But keep those seeds around another year or more rather than discarding the pricey packets. “If you grow very much, you can save money,” said Carol Yaw, a veteran gardener and merchandising

manager with Charley’s Greenhouse and Garden in Mount Vernon, Wash. “I always start with my old seeds before buying new. It’s simply a matter of getting quality seeds to start with. Look to reputable nurseries instead of shopping for discounts.” Seeds from certain crops stay viable longer than others. Samples of

the so-called New Mexico Cave Beans were successfully germinated after 1,500 years of dormancy. They did so well that some commercial growers added them to their product lines. “Old seed is fine to plant in most cases by home gardeners,” said Bill McDorman, founder and president of Seeds Trust DEAN FOSDICK/AP PHOTO

I routinely get 90 per cent-plus germination from tomato seeds that are over 10 years old.” Hard, round seeds seem to last longest, he said. “Generally, onion and chive (seeds) are among the first to die off. But I’ve planted onion seeds five years old or more and still got many to grow.” B. Rosie Lerner, a consumer horticulturist with Purdue University Extension, has compiled a longevity index for many vegetable and flower seeds.

standard applies to alyssum, calendula, celosia, dianthus, nasturtium, poppy and zinnia, among annual flower seeds, she said. Still, it would be prudent to do a germination test before dropping any leftover seeds into the ground, said Scott Peterson, owner of Hometown Seeds in Orem, Utah. Proper storage is crucial

to seed viability. “Keep them as dry as possible, as cold as possible and as dark as possible,” Peterson said. “The lower the temperature, the better.

sports All-star game gets schoolyard twist Brendan Shanahan can picture himself standing among his peers, waiting to be chosen for an all-star team. “I’d probably (notice) each and every single player that went ahead of me in the draft,” says the former NHL star. “And I’d probably carry that out into the game with me.” In his role as an NHL executive, Shanahan has worked with the NHL Players’ Association to revamp this season’s all-star game format. The players have been handed the power and will select the two captains, who will then pick the teams that will face off on all-star weekend in Carolina. It replaces the old conference-versus-conference format and has the potential to create some interesting storylines. Shanahan, the man behind the makeover, believes the changes will add some spice to a stale event. “The intention is to make this a show,” the former eight-time all-star said during a conference call yesterday. “I think the players that have heard about this concept think it’s fun. They’re interested to see how the draft shakes down. Do the captains focus on the individual talents? Do they focus on the skills competition or the game? Do they lock up the goaltenders or do they go after scoring?“ A number of specific details are still to be worked out, including what the teams will be called and whether coaches will be included in the draft process. There won’t necessarily be one final player left standing when the captains make their picks. Shanahan said they have considered trying to avoid that by allowing each captain to make multiple choices towards the end of the draft. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Is end near for Peddie? MLSE president expected to retire at the end of hockey season Media reports say firm has been hired to find his replacement Richard Peddie readily concedes his retirement as president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment is on the horizon. But, he says, the sun isn’t setting on his career just yet. The 63-year-old won’t confirm this will be his last hockey season at the helm as speculation grows that he will depart in April or after a Leafs’ playoff run, whichever comes first. Peddie called such conjecture “premature” and said there is no timetable in place for him to leave. “What I am saying is I’ll be 64 in January and it

his replacement. Peddie, however, said MLSE has long been looking at various scenarios. “Like good companies do, we’ve been working on a succession plan for me for years. You look at who’s inside, who’s outside. There is a plan and, at some point, they will (execute) it, but not right now,” he said. “Whatever we decide and whatever the timing is, it’ll be a mutual decision.” Peddie became president of the Raptors in 1996 and then took over the entire operation, becoming CEO of MLSE in 1998.

Under his guidance, MLSE has been wildly successful away from the ice and playing fields, launching lucrative new business ventures ranging from specialty television channels to a condominium development to a glitzy sports bar, all while managing arenas and building a state-of-theart playpen for the Leafs and Raptors. But MLSE’s sports franchises have struggled, with playoff appearances very rare for the Leafs, Raptors, TFC and Marlies. Championships have been non-existent. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Halfway through the season, six NFL teams are looking like winners in last spring’s draft, especially the Lions and Patriots JEFF GROSS/GETTY IMAGES

Ndamukong Suh, DL, pictured, and Jahvid Best, RB, Lions: Who could argue with these first-rounders? Despite just two wins, the Lions are on the rise thanks to the already fearsome 6-foot-3, 307pound Suh (No. 2 overall) and the shifty, speedy Best (No. 30). Suh is a relentless rusher with 61⁄2 sacks, an interception and a 17-yard TD off a fumble recovery to seal a 37-25 win over the Redskins in Week 8.

Stepped right in to starter’s role and, while not tearing up the league, is a big reason why these guys are co-leaders in the NFC West — their four wins are one more than the past two years combined. The No. 1 overall pick out of Oklahoma has thrown for 1,674 yards, completed nearly 59 per cent of his passes, and has 11 TDs and eight interceptions. Despite being sacked 17 times, he’s gotten up every time.

The 6-5, 304-pounder from Florida could be the Steelers’ best rookie since Ben Roethlisberger in 2004. He’s probably the team’s best offensive lineman — he makes all the blocking calls for the line — and may follow a long line of star Steelers centres: Ray Mansfield, Mike Webster and Dermontti Dawson. Pouncey caught on so fast, previous starter Justin Hartwig was cut in training camp.

Dez Bryant, WR/PR, Cowboys A lone bright light in a dark season, Bryant leads all rookies in scoring with six TDs, four catching passes and two returning punts, including a 93-yarder in a loss to the Giants in Week 7. The 24th pick in the draft out of Oklahoma State has 38 catches for 435 yards, and he’s averaging 14.4 yards per punt return.

Mike Williams, WR, Buccaneers Josh Freeman needs players to throw to, and this fourth-round pick from Syracuse is his main target. Behind Bryant, he’s the second-leading rookie wideout with 36 catches for 559 yards and five TDs, not to mention clutch grabs to help Freeman and the Bucs pull out several wins in the final minutes.

MIKE ZARRILLI/GETTY IMAGES

Aaron Hernandez, TE, pictured, and Rob Gronkowski, TE; Patriots First it was Gronkowski (a second-rounder from Arizona) making key catches, and lately it’s been Hernandez (a fourthrounder from Florida). The two have combined for 48 catches for 584 yards and five TDs (Hernandez has 34 catches for 436 yards and two TDs) in becoming dependable targets for Tom Brady. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NHL still lagging behind in the world of Twitter There’s no denying the learning curve now that the NHL’s general managers are talking about social media. Darcy Regier of the Buffalo Sabres wasn’t even sure if any of his players had a Twitter account when he attended this week’s GMs meeting. So while Phoenix Coyotes counterpart Don Maloney led a discussion on the top-

ic, he was busy punching away at his laptop. “As he was saying that, I was Googling some names,” said Regier. “Naturally, you start from the youngest up, right?” And he was far from alone in the room. “I don’t even understand it, so I wouldn’t know how to draft rules,” said Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke. “I’m

clearly lost when we discuss that. So, no, we don’t have any rules.” The NHL is clearly lagging behind on the issue. The NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball all established formal policies more than a year ago. While some within the ranks of the NHL have long been pushing the league to follow suit, it only now appears ready to have serious

dialogue on the issue. The most interesting question moving forward will be whether the GMs decide to embrace the opportunity presented by platforms like Twitter or if they will attempt to limit players’ use because they perceive it as some kind of threat. The Coyotes are among the more active teams on Twitter, led by colourful en-

forcer Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0). He and Maloney have had a couple discussions about things Bissonnette has tweeted — “every once in a while you just have to say, ‘No, no, no, no, stay on the good side of the ledger,’” said Maloney — but the Phoenix organization remains supportive of its players participating.

Manchester rivals draw 0-0, while Chelsea earns win Manchester United drew 00 at Manchester City yesterday to let Chelsea stretch its lead at the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win over visiting Fulham. The Manchester rivals created few chances in a high-paced encounter at City of Manchester Stadium and United’s fifth draw from six away games this season left it four points behind the defending champion. Michael Essien scored and was sent off for Chelsea as the Blues stretched their unbeaten streak against their west London neighbours to 10 matches. Marouane Chamakh scored both goals as Arsenal stayed in third place with a 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, while City stayed fourth. Newcastle stayed in fifth place despite a 2-1 home defeat to Blackburn, followed by six teams tied on 16 points. Chelsea leads with 28 after recovering from Sunday’s surprise 2-0 loss at Liverpool, albeit without dominating its less heralded opponent. Didier Drogba had already had a free kick saved by Mark Schwarzer when Essien, back on the field after missing two matches because of a toe injury, headed Salomon Kalou’s 30th-minute cross down and into the net for his fourth goal of the season. But Essien now faces an absence through suspension after he was shown a red card in the final minute for a two-footed lunge on Fulham forward Clint Dempsey. Chelsea could have won by more. Florent Malouda drew a save from Schwarzer five minutes before halftime and Kalou shot just wide of the far post seconds later. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JON SUPER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Yankees GM meets with Lee

Buffalo Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman limped off the field with a lower right leg injury shortly after opening his first practice with his new team. The former San Diego Chargers star pass-rusher was hurt during an individual drill a half-hour into practice yesterday.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has travelled to Arkansas to meet with free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee. Cashman was invited Tuesday by Lee’s agent to meet with the 32year-old left-hander and his wife, a person familiar with the arrangements told The Associated Press yesterday.

Chad Pennington is replacing Chad Henne as the Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback. Coach Tony Sparano made the announcement after practice yesterday. The Dolphins (4-4) play host to Tennessee Sunday, when Pennington will make his first start since he suffered a season-ending right shoulder injury in Week 3 last year. “They both have strengths, and certainly weaknesses,” Sparano said. “At this particular time, my decision is Chad Pennington’s strengths might be suited a little bit more for where we need to be.” Sparano made the change mindful of the need for a surge in the standings. The Dolphins trail New England and the New York Jets by two games in the

CAT POWER WILL PREVAIL ON SUNDAY Upsets add a jolt of adrenaline to the CFL playoffs, when one bounce can send a favoured team packing and make underdogs suddenly believe they can topple giants.

DAVID COOPER/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

xpect to see one surprise ending during Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two semifinal games, while the other should go according to form. TORONTO AT HAMILTON Stop Argos running back Cory Boyd on the ground and limit Toronto special teams sensation Chad Owens and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will punch their ticket to the East final. The Ticats have been superior to the Argos this season, defeating them in each of their three meetings by a 74-28 total. The Tabbies shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose in their own backyard Sunday when they host the Argos for a chance to challenge the Montreal Alouettes in the East final. The Argos exceeded expectations this season, winning nine games with a quarterback in Cleo Lemon who seems unsuited for the Canadian game. Turnovers killed the Argos in the first two meetings with Hamilton, but it was the Ticatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 30-3 thrashing of the Double Blue last month that is the true indicator of where these two teams stand. The Ticats have an offence that includes three 1,000-yard receivers, a de-

fence ranked among the best in the league, and a quarterback in Kevin Glenn who threw for more than 5,000 yards. The Ticats still need to be wary. Last November they were also expected to win the semi, but were upset by the B.C. Lions. Pick: Hamilton by 10. B.C. AT SASKATCHEWAN In the West, an upset has been in the making for weeks as the Saskatchewan Roughriders clinched second place but sputtered down the home stretch, losing four of their last

five games. This is the fourth successive year in which the Riders will stage a home playoff game, but they looked like anything but a Grey Cup contender the last month or so. In fact, early hopes of again finishing first in the West were dashed by a late season slump that has made them look susceptible to an upset. The Riders defence struggles defending the run, although the Roughies held Lions tailback Jamal Robertson to 57 yards on eight rushes when B.C. won 23-17 last month. Still, Robertson is capable of bowling over any CFL defence, posting a 6.2 yard average this season. Accentuating the run defence problem for the Riders is a troubling ankle injury to middle linebacker Barrin Simpson, whose 104 defensive tackles led the league. The Ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; own running game is also a concern. The pass-happy squad (QB Darian Durant piled up a leaguehigh 5,542 passing yards this season) can light it up in fair weather, but what happens if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a windy and cold November day in Regina? Pick: B.C. by 3

Today’s horoscope Aries March 21-April 20 There is no point asking others what they think of your plans because even if they tell you it’s unlikely you will be able to trust what they say. Trust your instincts and go it alone.

Taurus April 21-May 21 You will be quite outspoken today, and while it may not make you many new friends you will gain the respect of people you live, work and do business with. Call it as you see it.

Gemini May 22-June 21 You will get a great deal done today, but will it be the kind of work that takes you closer to your long-term goal? Only do what is really important to you —everything else is a waste of your time and your energy.

Cancer June 22-July 22 You know what you want and you know where to get it and there is not a doubt in your mind that before the day is done it will be in your possession. Leo July 23-Aug.23 Don’t be too proud to ask for assistance because you are going need it. You may think you can push on alone today but you’ll realize you’ve taken on too much. Get help now. Virgo Aug. 24- Sept. 22 Your self-belief is at an all-time high. You will take on tasks that others are too scared to think about, let alone attempt. Don’t be too reckless though or you could find yourself in a situation that even you cannot master.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23 You don’t lack for energy but will you channel it in positive directions? This is the perfect time to take a few risks. Just remember there is a big difference between risk and stupidity.

Your powers of persuasion may be strong but don’t abuse them. Do everything you can to persuade others gently first, because you will create a lot of bad feeling if you get heavy.

Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22

Aquarius Jan. 21-Feb. 18

There have, of course, been times in your life when you failed to live up to expectations, but now you will be able to prove you have what it takes. You WILL succeed.

You will get more done in the next 24 hours than most people get done in 24 days. Where does your energy come from? Employers will be watching you closely – and they’ll love what they see.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 Make sure you do

not overlook any small but important details today, because if you do they will most likely trip you up. There is a world of difference between confidence and over-confidence.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20 The Sun’s transit of Scorpio gives you the courage to be tough, even ruthless, when the situation demands it, but limit it to work and business dealings. SALLY BROMPTON
