Doctors due back in court in March

RICHARD LAUTENS/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Lawyers for two Torontoarea doctors facing sex charges made a brief court appearance Thursday morning to set a future court date. Amitabh Chauhan and Suganthan Kayilasanathan — both accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in a Toronto hotel — will appear in court again on March 14. The men are charged with gang sexual assault and administering a noxious substance.

They were each released on $100,000 sureties on Wednesday, put up by Kayilasanathan’s father and Chauhan’s wife. Both must reside with their guarantors as a condition of bail. The men must also surrender their travel documents to police and remain in Ontario. Chauhan and Kayilasanathan, both 32, are not allowed to go to bars or any place where the sale of alcohol is the primary source of revenue.

They cannot enter any hotel, motel or inn unless it’s for a scheduled medical conference. The men are also restricted from entering several medical facilities in Hamilton. They are allowed to practise medicine, but have been ordered not to use or carry drugs outside of hospitals. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario is conducting its own investigation.

Dot marks the spot for awesome artist

ANDREW WALLACE/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

$1,000 grant will pay for first neighbourhood connect-the-dots puzzle, including cost of renting helicopter for aerial photos: Avery Hey! Can I paint a big white dot on your roof ? That’s the question Stephanie Avery will be asking Torontonians as she embarks on a decidedly awesome art adventure. The 30-year-old artist is behind “Connect the TDots,” a project that will turn aerial and satellite views of Toronto into a giant number puzzle. “I think at first people might think it’s a bit of a joke,” she says. “But once they see how much fun it will be, hopefully they’ll be offering up their rooftops.” Avery, the first-ever Toronto Awesome Foundation grant winner, was handed a paper bag stuffed with $1,000 in cash on Thursday night at the organization’s launch party. The Awesome Foundation — a concept that began in Boston and has since expanded to 13 chapters

“What do people use their roof for? Not much, usually. This way they get to be a part of a piece of art.” STEPHANIE AVERY

around the world — gives out monthly no-stringsattached cash grants to people with great ideas. Avery’s pitch beat out more than 250 wild ideas submitted by hopefuls across the GTA. Her rooftop dots will be white, numbered and three to four metres in diameter. When connected, they will form various shapes unique to each city neighbourhood. In Cabbagetown, for example, the dots could form the shape of a cabbage. Avery plans to solicit shape suggestions from community members.

Stephanie Avery, the winner of the Awesome Foundation contest. Avery’s winning idea is to put giant dots on rooftops and connect the dots from arial photos.

Man guilty of assault in schoolyard fight

LUCAS OLENIUK/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Judge rejects claim lesbian couple provoked man with racial slurs Two Oshawa women may have used racial slurs in the past but they didn’t start a schoolyard fight with a black man, a judge has decided. Rejecting Mark Scott’s claim that he hit the “racist bigots” in self-defence after they attacked him, Justice Katrina Mulligan found him guilty on two counts of assault causing bodily harm. Scott, a stay-at-home father of three, threw the first punch in an “animated and angry confrontation” that left Jane Currie, 39, and her partner Anji Dimitriou, 33, bloodied and bruised, Mulligan concluded. No witnesses heard the women hurl racial epithets at Scott during the incident in front of Gordon B. Attersley Public School on Nov. 3, 2008, Mulligan said in court Thursday. But she said she believed

the women had used racist terms — possibly including the “truly sickening” nword — in the past. Dimitriou testified Scott called them “f-----g dykes” and referred to them as “men,” but Mulligan said there wasn’t enough evidence to show their sexual orientation was a motivation behind his attack. The fight was the culmination of “bad blood” between Scott and the two women over parking issues and their children, the judge said. Labelling the 45-yearold’s testimony “evasive” and “inconsistent,” Mulligan concluded Scott spat on Dimitriou and punched both women in the face. But she criticized both sides for hurling insults and profanities, saying she “felt sorry for the young children exposed to their behaviour.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

‘Friskiest’ flocking to sex show Torontonians will have an opportunity to show the country they are the “friskiest” city in Canada at Sexapalooza this weekend. “People from Toronto are willing to take part and get involved in the shows we have,” said Liz Lewis, president and show man-

ager. “In Montreal, I noticed people weren’t as willing to participate. Torontonians are much more open at the show, which is shocking because you’d expect the opposite.” Sexapalooza is an annual consumer trade show that showcases all aspects

of sexuality. The event will be held at the International Centre in Mississauga Friday to Sunday. “We had a great reception last year in Toronto. About 12,000 people showed up despite a snowstorm and the (Winter Olympic men’s hockey)

gold-medal game,” said Lewis. Attendees can expect stage shows, free sex seminars, erotic movie screenings and access to a vast variety of toys and products for the bedroom as Sexapalooza comes to Toronto for the second year.

Lewis went on to say that out of all the shows across Canada, the people of Ontario have proven to be the “friskiest.” Tickets can be purchased for $15 on its website (sexapalooza.ca) until 5 p.m. Friday, or at the door for $20. MATTHEW LOPES

Ryerson University hosts hip-hop event A Tribe Called Quest’s DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad will be one of 10 artists attending the hip-hop event Other featured guests include Motion, Isis, Master T MARK HERBERT

TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

Hip-hop royalty is coming to Toronto in the form of DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest as part of the L.I.V.E. Hip-Hop Festival, organized by students of Ryerson University. The Live to Inspire Via Education Festival is a free on-campus event, which is open to the public. It runs from Monday to March 4 (excluding March 2) and will feature panel discussions on topics like the arts and queer communities. Ryerson’s student-run Urban Hip-Hop Union decided to organize this event to highlight the im-

“I hope people walk away with a greater appreciation for hip hop.” NEDA ABBAS, CO-DIRECTOR

portance of hip hop to the urban community. “They (hip-hop artists) started a lot of groundbreaking music and entertainment that brought together a lot of other communities,” co-media relations director Laura Pugliese said. “We really want to teach people why the urban community is so important. “We want it to be a huge event, to keep it

alive throughout the younger generation,” said Pugliese. Organizers want the event to appeal to everybody, which is why they asked Deadlee, a pioneer in the LGBT community, to attend. “This is a way to let them know they have a voice,” co-director Neda Abbas said of the queer community. “Hip hop does represent them also.” Abbas said the lineup of artists should encourage people to support the event. “I would like the world to come, ideally,” Abbas said. The final day of the festival will be held inside the Opera House.

Drifting snow forecast for today MATTHEW LOPES/FOR METRO

Environment Canada is warning commuters to be cautious of drifting snow Friday that could make the drive to work difficult. Environment Canada meteorologist Jim Price said commuters who plan to be on the road in the morning and early portions of the afternoon should be wary of low visibility caused by heavy volumes of drifting snow. “If you’re planning on leaving work early, drive

slow and be aware of the traffic around you, especially if you are going to be on the highways,” said Price. On the weekend, Price said the winds should die down for Saturday with mostly sunny skies and a high of –2 C. For Sunday, Price said to expect rain as temperatures will rise above freezing, with a high of 4 C, and 9 C come Monday. MATTHEW LOPES

Torontonians can expect to see slushy conditions over the weekend with rain expected after today’s expected snowfall.

Joseph (Deadlee) Lee, pioneer in the LGBT community, is one of the featured guests at Ryerson University’s L.I.V.E. Hip-Hop Festival next week.

Accused cop killer’s case put over to March The man accused of running down and killing a Toronto police officer with a stolen snowplow is scheduled to make another court appearance next month. Richard Kachkar made a brief video appearance Thursday and the case was put over to March 17, when he is again expected to appear via video. Kachkar faces a first-degree murder charge in the

death of Sgt. Ryan Russell. His lawyer, Bob Richardson, says he is awaiting more disclosure from the Crown. Kachkar, 44, of no fixed address, was shot and arrested Jan. 12 about an hour after Russell was struck down while trying to stop the plow during a chase through city streets. Russell, 35, left behind a wife and two-year-old son. THE CANADIAN PRESS

In the latest blow to the Libyan leader, a cousin who is one of his closest aides, Ahmed Gadhaf al-Dam, announced that he has defected to Egypt in protest against the regime’s bloody crackdown against the uprising, denouncing what he called “grave violations to human rights and human and international laws.” In Zawiya, 50 kilometres west of Tripoli, an army unit attacked the city’s Souq Mosque, where regime opponents had been camped for days in a

Bev Oda did what?

Bob Rae dismisses Tory suggestions Canadians don’t care about memo from Oda’s officials over funding for a church-based foreign aid group

Liberal MP and foreign affairs critic Bob Rae holds a news conference in Ottawa, Thursday.

Opposition parties are vowing to turn the Oda affair into an excruciating toothache for the Harper government even as a new poll suggests half of Canadians are numb to the con-

troversy. The Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll found 50 per cent of those surveyed had heard nothing about the document-altering scandal swirling around

Two and a Half Men yanked after Sheen radio rant In the wake of an incendiary radio interview with Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen, CBS and Warner Bros. Television said they are ending production on TV’s top-rated sitcom for the season. The decision was based on the “totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition,” the companies said in a joint statement Thursday. The show’s future was not addressed. Production had been suspended in January to allow Sheen to seek rehabilitation. In a rambling, often vitriolic radio interview with host Alex Jones, the 45year-old actor blasted Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre and other targets including Alcoholics Anonymous. Sheen repeatedly evoked violent images and ideas. He also derided Lorre in an attack that suggested antiSemitism.THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ruling: Assange faces extradition

BEN STANSALL/GETTY IMAGES

WikiLeaks founder’s lawyers question Sweden’s judicial process Lawyers express concern Assange risks being handed over to the U.S. Background

WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of U.S. military documents on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and on U.S. diplomatic efforts worldwide, deeply angering U.S. and international officials. Assault. Shortly after WikiLeaks released sensitive documents, two Swedish women accused Assange of sexual assault. Arrest. Assange was arrested in London in December. Appeal. Assange has appealed the extradition rulings and his case could eventually be brought before Britain’s High Court.

The WikiLeaks media parade returned to the Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court once again, this time to hear for certain Julian Assange’s fate. At Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court in southeast London, District Judge Howard Riddle ruled the 39-year-old whistleblower should be extradited to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations. The judge rejected claims from the WikiLeaks founder that he would not face a fair trial, saying the allegations of rape and sexual molestation by two women against Assange meet the definition of extraditable offences and that the Swedish warrant had been properly issued

and was valid. After hearing three days of testimony this month, Riddle concluded, “there is simply no reason to believe there has been a mistake.” Eventually, Assange left the building to speak in front of the media. Looking tired rather than his relaxed self, Assange, while gazing across to the attentive media, called the court case an “abusive process.” The famed whistleblower did not appear to smile throughout his speech. After the judge’s decision surfaced to the outside, the number of protesters — many of whom donned masks à la the movie V For Vendetta — swelled, voicing their

anger and frustration. A number of activists performed a sit-down protest as a result of the hearing, after which they were eventually physically removed by police. Meanwhile, Claes Borgström, the lawyer representing the two women at the centre of the sexual allegations, told major Swedish news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå: “This decision was expected because there was no reason to refuse extradition. The only thing would be if the English court had decided that Assange couldn’t be guaranteed a fair trial in Sweden, and that is not the case.” XIAOLIANG HUANG WITH FILES FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sens vs. Flyers hits home for former Leaf

SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Luke Richardson is raising awareness for mental health after his daughter committed suicide Former Toronto Maple Leaf defenceman, now Ottawa Senators assistant coach, Luke Richardson is hoping something positive comes from the darkest moment in his family’s life. So, despite Ottawa’s onice struggles this year, the club’s game Saturday night against the Philadelphia Flyers holds plenty of importance following the suicide of his 14-year-old daughter, Daron, in November. The contest will mark the first Do It For Daron Youth Mental Health

Awareness Night, an event that will highlight issues surrounding mental health and suicide awareness. “The key word is to try and find a positive,” Richardson said. “As difficult as it is, some days are always going to be difficult and there’s nothing you can do about it.” Daron Richardson died Nov. 13 after attempting to hang herself. She was found by her mother, Stephanie, and rushed to hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Former Maple Leaf Luke Richardson speaks on the issue of teen suicide Thursday during a media conference in Ottawa.

German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle talks to media on Thursday during his visit to Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the focal point of the Egyptian uprising.

Making sense of Cairo’s jailbreak Some allege mass prisoner escape was engineered by regime Others doubt there was a single guiding hand It remains one of the many murky chapters of Egypt’s uprising — how did onefourth of the nation’s prisoners manage to escape? A few days after the revolt began on Jan. 25, police vanished from the streets and the military took over — a transition that was followed immediately by an explosion of looting, arson and lawlessness on the streets of Cairo.

Amid chaos, about 23,000 of the nation’s 80,000 prisoners fled. While security forces appear to have released inmates or abandoned posts at some prisons, guards elsewhere used live fire to put down riots. At one lockup, prisoners said they were left for days without food or water after the wardens fled. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Inside the prison, we pounded on the doors and no one came, no guards, so we figured that they had fled ... We took anything we could find ... and broke the doors.” HASSAN WISHAH, AN ESCAPEE

No charges for man claiming he euthanized wife

Quebec cops caught sleeping in cruiser

MPs. Promote

Two Quebec provincial police officers caught snoozing in their cruiser are now under investigation by their force — and under the global gaze of YouTube. They were caught on tape by an amateur videographer in the act of, well, not doing anything Thursday morning. The brief encounter began when the camera-toting citizen walked up to the parked vehicle. He continued rolling tape as the two officers, their seats tilted all the way back, were in the deepest throes of somnolent recline.

Stephan Bolton says wife had two months to live Tells newspaper he has been haunted by his actions A Nova Scotia man who claims he gave his terminally ill wife a lethal injection last month says he’s “in a lot of jeopardy” despite being released from police custody. Stephan Bolton of Liverpool says he was let go Thursday without being charged, a day after he told the Halifax Chronicle Herald he was going to turn himself in to police. RCMP will only say a 56year-old man who turned himself in Wednesday to confess to a possible homicide has been released without charges and their investigation is continuing. They say the man, who

they won’t officially name, remains a person of interest in the investigation and is co-operating with police. The Halifax Chronicle Herald reported Wednesday that Bolton called the newspaper to tell his story before going to police. He claimed his 59-yearold wife Barbara, who owned a taxi and photography business, had Stage 4 breast cancer. Bolton has said he wanted to spur public debate about the issue of euthanasia. “Every single person in this country needs a wakeup call about what’s going,” he said after he was released by police.

Airfares

While she wasn’t in terrible pain, Bolton told the Chronicle Herald his wife was very depressed. He claimed that on Jan. 22, he gave her a lethal injection of two medications — morphine and Nozinan. Bolton said he and his wife never discussed the possibility of euthanasia and he didn’t ask if she wanted a lethal injection.

Missiles or missives in the night? Changing warfare

TARA BRAUTIGAM/THE CANADIAN PRESS

The idea came from the battlefield in Afghanistan Night letters were a ‘disease’ used to instill fear The letter opens with a greeting seemingly ripped from a fairy tale: “Brothers and sisters, sleep soundly.” Beginning this week, Afghans in Kandahar province will wake up to those warm words posted on their front doors. The Canadian military is borrowing a Taliban tactic to counter the insurgency’s message, coming up with night letters of its own to be distributed in select communities in the Panjwaii district, where most of Canada’s battle group is based. The letter, written in Pashto, is an attempt to reassure locals that the Afghan National Security Forces are patrolling their

villages at night. It also encourages them to report suspected insurgent activity, such as the planting of improvised explosive devices or stashing of weapons, and provides phone numbers where people can offer tips while maintaining their anonymity. Its message is not subtle. “You will be working towards your brighter future,” the letter says. “ANSF are here to stay and will not be stopped by the cowardly intimidation. With your help we can rid the country of the darkness of the insurgents.” Capt. Philippe Chagnon, the second-in-

Letters of fear Night letters from the mujahedeen spread fear among young and old.

command of Task Force Kandahar’s Psychological Operations team, said the military was initially hesitant. “We were reluctant because this is one of the insurgents’ way of communicating,” Chagnon said. “But now I think we’re turning that to a positive thing.” The tradition of night letters in Afghanistan began with the mujahedeen. After the Soviet Union invaded in 1979, the group distributed missives after sunset in Communist-controlled areas, warning Afghans that their lives were in danger unless they stopped working for the “infidel” government.

The illiteracy 90 rate in Panjwaii province is estimated

THE CANADIAN PRESS

to be 90 per cent.

But the letters stopped once the Taliban seized power in September 1996: They became unnecessary because the group settled all scores with force. It wasn’t until after the Taliban were ousted in December 2001 that the mujahedeen began posting night letters, threatening death. Canada’s night letter will be distributed to homes of specific groups, such as fighting age males or influential elders. This is one of the night letters the Canadian military has started distributing in Kandahar’s Panjwaii district. It is the latest salvo in the propaganda war with the Taliban.

Rafat Al-Akhali’s solution for reforming his country sounds, well, so Canadian. He laughs. “I know, I know, it does sound so nice. Hey, let’s just be friends.” Maybe that’s what he gets for living in Calgary and Montreal for the last eight years, returning home as revolutions swept the Arab world. Al-Akhali, 28, grew up under President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s rule and, like many his age, says he was inspired by the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt that toppled two autocratic

The number of street protesters increased after fatalities Tuesday night, when government loyalists broke through police lines and shot into the crowd.

PHIL NOBLE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Prince William and his fiancée, Kate Middleton, react Thursday following a dedication for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s new Atlantic 85 Lifeboat in Anglesey, Wales.

William, Kate launch lifeboat Visit had been highly anticipated since couple have kept such a low profile since engagement announcement It was only a lifeboat. But it gave hundreds of people a chance to cheer Thursday as Prince William and fiancée Kate Middleton made an official visit to dedicate the new vessel. In a ceremony in Anglesey, Wales, the prince made a short statement asking that all those who used the boat be blessed, and then Middleton, with a big smile,

poured champagne over the lifeboat. “I do the talking, she does the fun bit,” William joked. The champagne bottle was not broken over the boat, as is traditional, because the boat was an inflatable. Middleton looked elegant and comfortable in her new role as a princess-

to-be. She wore a threequarter length tailored beige coat designed by British designer Katherine Hooker, and had her long hair swept back and topped by a chic feathery hat. The hat was adorned with a badge of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, an infantry regiment of the British army. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Danish backpackers Catrina Stouge, left, and Sofie Francker, survivors of Tuesday’s earthquake, wait at Christchurch airport, New Zealand for a flight to Australia, Friday. Stouge and Francker were in a backpackers hostel in the centre of Christchurch when the magnitude 6.3 temblor struck.

Police say death toll in New Zealand earthquake has risen to 113 More than 200 people listed as missing At the epicentre, children in the school playground screamed as the earth rattled and cracked. Elderly residents toppled to the floor in the nursing home. Cliff faces fell, spitting truck-sized boulders across lawns and through houses. This week’s massive earthquake flattened office towers and killed at least 98 people in nearby Christchurch. But this tiny harbourside village reported no deaths despite being ground zero. Residents are thankful for that. But there is devastation all around them. “I thought the devil was coming up out of the earth,” said Kevin Fitzgerald, a 63-year-old teacher’s aide who yanked a student under a desk and sheltered him as the school rocked menacingly, sending everything crashing to the floor. “The whole building was just undulating — that noise, that NOISE!” he said Thursday, shaking his head at the memory. “I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to die.’” The rumbling started at 12:51 p.m. Tuesday. When

it stopped, Fitzgerald ran to join the students on the school’s playground, most of whom were sobbing hysterically. He saw a giant, mushroom-shaped cloud of dust hovering over the town. The community’s usual hum was replaced by silence, punctuated by screams, dog barks and seagull calls. Two days later, dazed residents of the close-knit village of 3,000 wandered through dusty, brick- and glass-covered streets, pausing when they passed each other to offer hugs, shed a few tears and ask the question on everyone’s mind: “How’s your house?” The answer was generally grim. Most homes bore at least some quakeinduced scars. The popular Ground deli was in ruins, windows were blown out of shop fronts and the stone steeple on the Union Parish Church had toppled to the ground. Though there was a report of one man crushed by a boulder, so far there are no confirmed deaths in Lyttelton. By contrast the death toll in Christchurch, just seven miles to the north, stood

at 113 and there are grave fears for more than 200 missing people in what could end up New Zealand’s worst natural disaster. Water supplies to Lyttelton were cut, and residents gathered Thursday at a fresh water station set up near the town centre, filling as many watering cans, plastic buckets and bottles as they could carry home. The pavement under their feet wobbled during relentless aftershocks, but residents said they were nothing compared with Tuesday’s nightmare. Lloyd Millar, 50, was walking up one of the community’s steep hills when he felt the road shift under his feet. “It was like standing on a swinging bridge and somebody on the end jumping up and down,” he said. Millar was filling buckets with water to haul back to his restaurant, which was covered in a greasy layer of spilled oil and sauce. His house was a wreck. The driveway had been lifted from the ground and slid downward and the brick walls crum-

bled in places, exposing foundation and wires. Jean Smith’s eyes filled with tears as she recalled the dread she felt Tuesday when the road beneath her car began to tilt. The 64-year-old clutched the steering wheel as the vehicle was thrown back and forth across the street. “NO! NO! NO!” she screamed as a church crumbled in front of her and shrieking children streamed from the school across the road. She was terrified. Was her husband, Tom, all right back at the house? She’d forgotten her cellphone and had no way to contact him. The giant boulders and massive piles of rubble that littered the streets turned her normally fiveminute drive home into a six-hour journey from hell. When she finally arrived, her heart sank — the house was a mess, and Tom nowhere to be found. The home they’d built together nearly 40 years ago had shifted several inches off its foundation, and parts of the outer wall had collapsed, exposing pink insulation. Her precious crystal had tumbled out of a living room cabinet and shattered. A beloved antique clock that belonged to

“We’re going to rebuild, but it’s going to take a long time. A long, long time.” JEAN SMITH, LYTTELTON RESIDENT WHOSE HOME WAS DAMAGED IN THE NEW ZEALAND EARTHQUAKE

her mother was smashed, and a toppled bottle of sambuca left a sticky mess on a blue carpet. She sat on a dining room chair and sobbed. Tom arrived minutes later and they clutched each other. “I’m glad you’re safe,” she told him. “They’re only breakable things.” Nearby, Jackie Crawford, 66, ran to check on her 89-year-old mother, Shirley Smith, at the Lyttelton nursing home. When she arrived, elderly patients were sprawled across the floor, and TVs had tumbled from their stands. She and staff members rushed to help the residents to their feet. “Everyone was in shock, looking stunned,” she said. Miraculously, she found her mother safe in her room, bustling around — and proudly pointing out

the vase of flowers she’d managed to grab before it crashed to the floor. The quake unleashed huge boulders from surrounding hills, sending them hurtling toward the village. One monstrous rock, around five metres wide and three metres tall, bounced twice as it crossed a main road, gouging deep holes in the pavement, then rocketed into the front yard of a one-story white brick home. The boulder smashed into the front door and exited out the back — taking out everything in between. Despite the devastation, few here said they would consider leaving. They would shake it off, clean up and move on with their lives. On Thursday, Jean Smith stood in her shattered living room staring out at the turquoise harbour, a sea-filled crater from an ancient volcanic eruption that serves as the main deep-water port for the Christchurch region. “We’re going to rebuild, but it’s going to take a long time,” she said. “A long, long time.” Outside, another aftershock rattled the earth. Inside, Tom and Jean continued to pick up the pieces. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A final blast-off

Tens of thousands witness Discovery’s last launch No other spacecraft has launched more times WILFREDO LEE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Six astronauts are on board the world’s most travelled spaceship. They’re headed for the International Space Station after a four-month delay for fuel tank repairs. This is Discovery’s 39th and final mission. It’s the first of the three space shuttles to be retired this year. The six astronauts for the space station delivery mission headed to the launch pad in early afternoon, waving and smiling to the massive picture-taking crowd at crew quarters. Once at the pad, they paused at the base of the pad to gaze up at Discovery and embraced in a group hug, before getting on board. The crew never made it this far before; November’s launch attempt ended midway through fuelling. This time, no hydrogen gas seeped out during fuelling. NASA also was confident no cracks would develop in the external fuel tank; final checks uncovered nothing serious, although pictures still were being analyzed. Both problems cropped up during the initial countdown in November, and the repairs took almost

Discovery will head to the International Space Station with the crew, as well as a load of supplies and a humanoid robot. Its list of achievements include delivering the Hubble Space Telescope to orbit, carrying the first Russian cosmonaut to launch on a U.S. spaceship, and bringing shuttle flights back to life after the Challenger and Columbia accidents.

Prices drop, as Libyan oil sputters

MARY ALTAFFER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Crude prices in just a week jumped 20 per cent to two-year highs Investors worry other Mideast oil producers could be engulfed in chaos

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

High and dry Italy this week suspended its Greenstream pipeline supply of natural gas from Libya into Italy. Italy, which takes 12 per cent of its natural gas from Libya, is having to import more from Norway, Algeria, Russia and other countries. Spanish energy company Repsol says it is producing about 160,000 barrels of crude daily in Libya, down from 300,000 barrels before the crisis started. French oil giant Total says it started to wind down its operations last year, while Germany’s Wintershall shut down operations that produced up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day.

Do You Love Shopping Around For The Best Deal? If you’re like most people, you’ll often spend hours doing research, checking flyers, looking for specials, and running from one store to another to make sure you get the best possible price on everyday items such as; clothes, electronics, furniture, and even groceries. Nothing beats the thrill of knowing you paid less for something by shopping at one place instead of the other, right? It all adds up – the time you invest and knowing where to go to get the best deals could end up saving you a bundle in the long run.

Sadly, even the smartest shoppers often don’t spend nearly the same amount of time and energy shopping for car insurance as they do for other items. After all, car insurance can be confusing, it never goes “on sale” (it only seems to get more expensive), it isn’t much “fun” to buy, and it seems like no one place always has the best prices. But what if one place compared the rates from over 30 insurance companies? And what if it would only take about 10 minutes? And what if you could end up saving hundreds, or even thousands of dollars? This is where InsuranceHotline.com can help by providing a free unbiased rate comparison service for your driving profile that can connect you with the lowest rate available through our large network of licensed brokers and agents.

Don’t Be Fooled By Others Offering To “Compare Quotes” Unlike most of its competitors, InsuranceHotline.com does not sell insurance, is not a licensed broker or agent, and is not owned in whole or in part by an insurance company. This allows InsuranceHotline.com to be unbiased when providing insurance quotes and keeps its focus solely on finding lower insurance rates for consumers. By contrast, most websites offering to “compare insurance quotes” are owned by or affiliated with insurance brokers or agents and are therefore only capable of quoting rates from the limited number of insurance companies they represent, typically no more than 4 or 5.

Oil prices dropped Thursday for the first time in nine days after the International Energy Agency said the rebellion in Libya may have cut oil production less than feared. The IEA said the uprising has forced oil companies to idle 500,000 to 750,000 barrels a day of production, or less than one per cent of global daily oil use. The IEA also said it can make up for lost shipments from Libya by tapping into surpluses held by member countries, which include the U.S., the U.K., France and Germany. Member nations hold 1.6 billion barrels of emergency oil, or enough crude to supply the group for 145 days.

Online storage site thinks inside the Box

Gone. Wild

Founder says Box’s staff of 140 will double within 18 months Hopes to be indispensable business tool THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Some tech-savvy venture capitalists are making a big bet on a promising Internet company poised to corner the market in online storage. Box.net, which offers online storage “lockers” for personal and corporate information, received $48 million US from a group of investors and financiers. Founded by Aaron Levie, 26, with $11,000 that his longtime friend, cofounder Dylan Smith, won in poker games, Box works

by allowing users to upload content to the company’s computer centres. Storing information this way means it can be called up on any device with an Internet connection. Levie won’t reveal the market value implied by

the latest investment, but indicated it’s less than $1 billion US. Box finished last year with $5 million US. And though it may not be the stuff of Hollywood movies, that doesn’t mean Box can’t deliver a huge windfall for its investors, said John O’Farrell, a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz. “Enterprise software is a less sexy space, but that has created a huge opportunity for investors like us.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Economic angst as Ireland goes to polls PETER MORRISON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams stops for a cup of tea Thursday while canvassing in the village of Dunleer, County Louth, before Ireland’s general election Friday.

Unemployment is above 13 per cent, Irish taxpayers have reluctantly become bank owners, the value of the family home has plummeted and the nation is in hock to the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. No wonder every party campaigning in Ireland’s national election is promising economic change. Ireland’s 3.1 million voters make their choices Friday, with every poll pointing to a new government led by Fine Gael, until now the perennial runnerup in Irish elections. The big question is whether Fine Gael will need a coalition partner, most likely the Labour Party. Sentiment weighs heavily against Fianna Fail, the party that led the government through the boom years of the Celtic Tiger

economy of 1994-2007 and into the collapse of the property bubble and the fall of the nation’s banks. The government, and thus the taxpayers, now control the Anglo Irish Bank, the Irish Nationwide and EBS building societies. The government also holds stakes in the Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Banks. Ireland’s plight has inspired a lively contest with a record 566 candidates including 179 independents for the 166 seats in Ireland’s lower house in parliament, the Dail. Nearly 49,000 people have rushed to register to vote in recent weeks. A poll published Thursday in the Irish Independent showed Fine Gael well ahead of other parties in being trusted to sort out public finances, create jobs

and improve the health system. Labour ranked second in each category. Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny campaigned in northwestern Ireland Thursday, urging voters to “turn your anger into action.” Labour leader Eamon Gilmore was out campaigning in Dublin, repeating his mantra that the nation needs “a fair and balanced government” — that is, one including his party. At one point. Gilmore’s press conference spilled into the street, blocking a street sweeper, so the Labour leader stuck his head into the cab in pursuit of a vote. He got it. “We need change,” said sweeper driver Thomas Daily, “but we don’t need to kill ordinary people.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Money trail In November 2010, Ireland suffered the humiliation of a massive bailout to keep its economy afloat — a $92-billion US line of credit from the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The 2010 budget deficit was a record 32 per cent of gross domestic product. The country was left with 2,800 housing developments that were not completed, and some 10,000 unfinished houses.

New light on early residents ‘Truly spectacular’

BEN A. POTTER/SCIENCE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Worth mentioning Some 11,500 years ago, one of North America’s earliest families laid the remains of a three-yearold child to rest in their home in what is now Alaska. The discovery of that burial is shedding new light on the life and times of the early settlers who crossed to the New World from Asia, researchers report in Friday’s edition of the journal Science. The bones represent the earliest human remains discovered in the Arctic, a “pretty significant find,” said Ben A. Potter of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. While ancient Alaskan

residents were known to hunt large game, the newly discovered site shows they also foraged for fish, birds and small mammals, he explained. “Here we know there were young children and females. So this is a whole piece of the settlement system that we had virtually no record of.” The site of the

have been a throwaway, but it isn’t. Instead it’s a throwback to the kind of movies that played at the bottom of the bill at the drive-in. It’s so over-thetop, so in-your-face it seems like a recent graduate from the Russ Meyer School of Fine Arts, class of 2011. Even the 3-D is extreme. This isn’t Avatar with its elegant stereoscopic effects. Here, as body parts and bullets were flying off the screen I couldn’t help but think that the 3-D was as extreme as the movie. What did you think of the 3-D?

His performance here is in his pedal-to-the-metal, noholds barred Bad Lieutenant/Vampire’s Kiss tradition — the Nic Cage I love. RC: Absolutely. He’s a helluva lotta fun here. This is the Cage that I wish we saw more of — the wildman-actor who seemingly has no boundaries. He’s still not 100 per cent back in my good books — the memory of Season of the Witch is too fresh to be forgotten — but a few more like this and a few less like Bangkok Dangerous and he may yet earn his way back to my A-list.

A spokeswoman says Elizabeth Taylor’s doctors continue to be encouraged by her progress as she remains hospitalized in Los Angeles. Publicist Jamie Cadwell says the 78-yearold actress will stay in the hospital for now so doctors can continue to observe her.

Depp makes movies for

the (just kids not his own) Johnny Depp, star of Rango, may be your family’s favourite actor. But his kids have different tastes. ‘They’re far more interested in Family Guy or Justin Bieber.’ NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

If his recent career choices haven’t made it clear — Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Alice in Wonderland — Johnny Depp is looking to entertain the kids. And his latest, the animated Rango about a chameleon who escapes his cage and fights crime in the Wild West, is no exception. “Kids in general, as an

audience, are the way forward because they’re not sullied by intellectual expectation or this or that. It’s a very pure kind of response to the work,” Depp says. “I trust kids far more than I do adults. Kids give you the honest opinion, you know. They tell the truth.” The revelation about younger audiences came, naturally, from his own experiences as a parent, Depp explains. “Before Pirates 1, I had a daughter. And for about four years,

all I watched was like cartoons — just cartoons,” he explains. “I realized at that point that the parameters were far away from what we do in sort of normal, everyday movies, and that you can get away with a lot more. Kids accept a lot more, and they buy it, you know, because they’re free.” But while kids are a much more satisfying audience, Depp’s own children — daughter Lily-Rose, 11, and son Jack, 9 — can also be the toughest critics. And per-

TOP CRITICS AGREE ‘CEDAR RAPIDS’ IS THE PLACE TO BE!

haps as a result of having such a famous and chameleon-like father, Depp’s kids aren’t easily fazed by his work. “The things that I’ve done that my kids have been sort of privy to — Willy Wonka and all — it doesn’t register,” he says. “They’re far more interested in Family Guy or Justin Bieber.” While Depp easily concedes that being an actor means telling lies for a living, telling lies as a parent hasn’t come nearly as naturally for him.

“I had horrific guilt for many years, playing along with the Santa Claus thing,” he says. “You’re never going to bring it up to them. They’re going to arrive and say, ‘Hey, you’ve been telling me a lie for my entire life. What are you prepared to do about that?’ “We’re now kind of just on the outskirts of that, so I feel OK. But these are lies that society tells you you must keep going, these kind of myths. And I feel guilt about it. I still do.”

rises to the occasion, but considering the multi-dimensional, ironic, crazed comedy of the School of Apatow, not often enough. A couple of family men are given a week off from marriage, and all that entails. The Farrellys (Dumb & Dumber, There’s Something about Mary) soft pedal it in this new domestic milieu, seriously diluting the brand. Punches are pulled, chances aren’t taken and even a constant parade of nude fools fails to delight. ANNE BRODIE

Four Lions

For all its ambiguity, Alamar makes for a pretty charming movie. Part documentary/part fiction, this simple observation focuses on the bonding of a father and son during a brief Caribbean fishing trip before the youngster moves to Italy with his mom. It’s a quiet film and while the tone is muted (unless you’re thrilled by a bug-eating egret), as a poetic piece on paternal love, it bleeds charisma.

Genre: Comedy Director: Chris Morris Stars: Riz Ahmed, Nigel Lindsay 8888

Veteran British provocateur Chris Morris’ feature debt is an uncomfortable and mostly uncompromising comedy about group of Muslim radicals plotting a terrorist attack: the joke lies in both their ineptitude and the fact that the authorities seem to have their eyes elsewhere at all times. The final set-piece, which takes place during

Oscars in a dangerous time DAY 6

BRENT BAMBURY SCENE@ METRONEWS.CA

It’s Oscar weekend, Canada. If you’re one of the dozens of friends I’ve invited over for Sunday’s show, I sure hope you love processed cheese. Entire books and documentary films have been made on the subject of Oscar’s Best Moments. But if you’ve ever watched the broadcast, you’ll know the old saying applies: Oscar has some great moments and some murderous half hours. And I’m finding it harder to find those moments. I keep tuning in to the Academy Awards expecting to be transported to Planet Glamour. But it’s never emotionally satisfying.

You always put

your family first...

Why is it that in Hollywood they can make Inception in IMAX but they can’t craft a short speech? Why did they give Mel Gibson an Oscar for Braveheart? And why doesn’t everyone look like Tilda Swinton? Wouldn’t it be great if this year’s Oscar for Best Picture went to the zombie flick? I’m talking about Black Swan. How would you describe Natalie Portman’s character other than zombie-like? She’s brutal, singleminded, she mutilates bodies, she morphs onscreen from a human being to a grotesque monster. She even feasts on human blood when she bites the tongue of Vincent Cassell. Anyway, here’s a fun game to play while making your Oscar nachos. Just name a country that is presently having or about to have a democratic uprising. It goes like this: Egypt.

Libya. Bahrain. Ummmm. Algeria? Tunisia! Oh, geez... Pass. Pass? What about Iran, Zimbabwe, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia? What about China? Remember last winter when there was a global fear of the H1N1 pandemic? This year the virus is freedom. It’s moving so quickly everyone’s trying to blame it on computers. Tunisia and Egypt were both said to have been sparked by Facebook or Twitter. But it’s not true. In fact there’s a handbook for revolutionary non-violent action. It wouldn’t work in Hollywood because non-violent is a non-starter. But it seems to be doing big box office everywhere else. Want to meet the man who wrote it? I did.

These days, Anne Hathaway is a busy woman. Or make that a busy Catwoman. The 28-year-old actress is training for the physical demands of her lead role in Catwoman (and its sleek, physique-revealing catsuit) as she flexes her comedy muscles alongside James Franco as cohosts of Sunday’s Academy Awards.

“There’s a lot going on, but it’s all really superduper positive,” Hathaway said Wednesday. “I feel like I have a big fight coming up and everyone’s giving me the thumbs-up and the ‘you’ll-rock-it’ fist pump. I have unbelievable support.” The Oscar team is helping Hathaway and Franco find their funniest material, she said, and the pro-

ducers “are making it as easy as possible on me.” Hathaway’s biggest challenge this week? Navigating Los Angeles’ famous freeways and making it to all her appointments on time. But the New York City resident has that one covered: “Luckily my assistant is a really good driver!” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Award answers REEL GUYS MARK BRESLIN

RICHARD CROUSE

Should Toy Story 3 have been nominated in both Best Animated and Best Picture categories? Yes 48.14% No 51.86%

RC: I think Toy Story 3 is a great film, but I don’t agree with the multiple nominations. If an animated film can be nominated in two categories then I think Exit Through the Gift Shop, a documentary that was easily one of the best all-round pictures of the year, should have been nominated in both Best Doc and Best Picture categories.

Metro Life Panel members weighed in, along with two movie mavericks, on the biggest Oscar night buzz Do John Hawkes, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo or Geoffrey Rush have any chance of beating Christian Bale as Best Supporting Actor? Yes 51.53% No 48.47

MB: I think Toy Story 3 should be happy with its inevitable win in the Animation category. I’m not sure that placing animation and docs in best picture categories isn’t comparing apples and oranges anyways.

Do you think Jeff Bridges will beat Colin Firth for Best Actor for the second year in a row? Yes 20.34%, No 79.66%

RC: Jeff Bridges doesn’t stand a chance this year. He’s good in True Grit, but it sounds like he took diction lessons from Keith Richards and the character doesn’t have the same emotional resonance as Colin Firth’s does in The King’s Speech. MB: I thought Colin Firth should have won it last year over Bridges. He’ll get it this year, though, and it isn’t even Bridges that’s his main competition. It’s Jesse Eisenberg, maybe even Franco.

Portman or Bening for Best actress? Portman 74.58% Bening 25.42%

RC: A month ago I would have said Natalie Portman hands down, but now I’m not sure. Black Swan represents a career high for her and she is very good in it, but I wonder if her subsequent career choices may Norbit her chances at a win. Following up a tour-de-force performance with a bad rom com and a few announced raunchy comedies may not endear her to the Academy voters. On top of that Anette Bening has been nominated four times, is Hollywood royalty and deserves it as well. This is a tight race.

RC: In short, no. They should all save the price of a tuxedo rental and stay home. They don’t have a chance. MB: That’s right, they don’t have a chance. But I suspect Ruffalo and Rush actually own their tuxes. Renner and Hawkes probably don’t have a blazer between them.

MB: This is a tight race, indeed. But I think Portman’s going to take it, although it won’t be the runaway victory that our readers believe. I preferred Bening’s understated, natural performance, although I certainly saw the work that Portman put in. But Bening did an entire film without much makeup, and I think that’s a courageous acting choice.

Will Canada take home the gold for Incendies (Best Foreign film) and Barney’s Version (Best Makeup)? Gold for Incendies 26.10%, Gold for Barney’s Version 24.41%, Both 23.05%, None 26.44%

RC: My fingers are crossed for both. The Best Foreign Film line-up is very strong this year, but Incendies is a very strong film. All the nominations this year are downbeat, depressing affairs so I don’t think the subject matter will hurt it any. As for the makeup award... I have a feeling it will go to The Wolfman. The movie disappointed but the makeup effects were great. MB: The Best Foreign film

New versus old

Oscars hash it out between tradition and freshness at this year’s awards show King’s Speech faces off against Social Network for best picture

Old against young, establishment against upstart, familiar faces against fresh ones. Hollywood has laid out a battle of the ages at Sunday’s Academy Awards. Among the 10 best-pic-

ture nominees, the show really comes down to just two: The King’s Speech, a costume drama that oozes Oscar tradition with its British accents, aristocratic pageantry and triumph

over disability, and The Social Network, the Facebook chronicle that’s all about today’s crude, rude world of getting yours at the expense of others, whether online or in real life.

The theme of past and present, traditional and topical, runs all through the Oscars. For best actress, the front-runner is 29-year-old Natalie Portman in Black Swan, with

52-year-old Annette Bening — a three-time loser at the Oscars — as sentimental favourite for The Kids Are All Right. For supporting actress, 50-year-old Melissa Leo, whose career caught fire in middle age, is favoured for The Fighter, with 14year-old newcomer Hailee Steinfeld a potential underdog winner for her film debut in True Grit. For best director, the favourites are Hollywood veteran David Fincher for The Social Network and British filmmaker Tom Hooper — a relative bigscreen novice known mainly for television work — for The King’s Speech. Long before nominations came out, the show’s organizers settled on a duo of youthful hosts — Anne Hathaway and James Franco — and promised a brisk, breezy ceremony that would be fun and funny while paying respect to Hollywood’s rich past.

“I think there’s a little bit of the old, a little bit of the new.” ACTOR JAMES FRANCO, WHO IS CO-HOSTING THE OSCARS WITH ACTRESS ANNE HATHAWAY

“A lot of the show will definitely be about bringing in a fresh crop of movie viewers,” said Franco, also a first-time nominee for best actor for 127 Hours. “But also, one of the backbones or arcs of the show is to appreciate the history of film. So Anne and I, as hosts, are to kind of bridge the gap between the older generation and the newer, younger generation.” The mix of youth and experience, familiarity and novelty permeates the key categories. Past Oscar winners Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Javier Bardem (Biutiful) and Jeff Bridges (True Grit) are nominated alongside such relative unknowns as firsttimer Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), longtime Australian performer Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) and 20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone).

— was non-existent. “It didn’t enter my mind, to be honest,” DeBlois says in a recent interview from his Dreamworks office in Glendale, Calif., where he’s writing a second draft of the Dragon sequel. “Hollywood just didn’t seem like a reality in even my most romanticized thoughts.” DeBlois’ first jobs included an animation gig for an Ottawa studio, which helped put him

through Sheridan College’s animation program in Oakville, Ont., but also marked the beginning of the end of his drawing career. “I quickly saw that the other animators around me were far better than I was,” admits DeBlois, who co-wrote and co-directed How To Train Your Dragon, 2002’s Lilo & Stitch and was cohead

Asked how he was feeling, Villeneuve replied: “I’m trying to be as Zen as possible.” Villeneuve admitted there is a fierce competitive streak that courses through his veins. “I am not proud of it — it’s arrogant and adolescent-like — but I am very competitive,” he said. “But if I lose Sunday night, I won’t be destroyed, and I will be happy for the

winner. I am competitive, but I’m able to recognize the talent of others.” Incendies was named best Canadian film by Toronto and Vancouver film critics and has collected several awards on the festival circuit.

Villeneuve has Oscar speech ready — just in case Denis Villeneuve’s acceptance speech is ready — just in case his Incendies wins the best foreign-language film at Sunday’s Oscars. But the renowned Quebec director says his being prepared to accept the award has nothing to do with cockiness. “I don’t have the choice,” he said. “I’m used to improvising, but in this case I know I will be too nervous and I’d be scared about forgetting people. “I prefer to prepare and not win, than win and not be ready. I’m exaggerating, but I can’t improvise.” Incendies, which follows twins as they travel from Montreal to the Middle East to uncover their

series and Megamind. “It’s not joke-a-minute and it’s not based on anything that’s too contemporary, too pop culture,” he says. “I think people see Dragon as a welcome change of direction, or at least a branching out at Dreamworks and some people want to reward that.” DeBlois says he already feels like he’s won a prize by getting the green light to write and direct the next Dragon instalment, and possibly a third.

How To Train Your Dragon directors and screenwriters Dean DeBlois (left) and Chris Saunders.

For animated filmmaker Dean DeBlois, the long road to Oscar glory involved the realization early on that he wasn’t all that great at drawing. As a kid growing up in Aylmer, Que., the comic book fan dreamed of landing a job at Marvel or DC. The idea of moving to Hollywood to write and direct big-budget animated films, and possibly even being nominated for an Oscar — as he is now for his 3-D hit How To Train Your Dragon

In speculating on his chances, DeBlois describes the blockbuster Toy Story 3 as a “daunting” rival while noting that his sweeping adventure saga marks a tonal departure from previous Dreamworks fare such as the Shrek

Un 32 aout sur terre (32nd Day of August on Earth). Regardless of what happens Sunday night, Villeneuve says he can’t wait until he gets back behind the camera. “The night before the nominations were announced, I was lying on a couch looking at a roaring fire and asking myself how I would survive the

next few hours. I told myself that no matter what happened, the most important thing was that my next film be a good one,” he said. “And that is what I still think today. Whether I win or not Sunday night, what’s important is that my next film be better than Incendies. THE CANADIAN PRESS

No Oscar pressure for True Grit sound designer Vancouver’s Berkey up for two Oscars

ancouver sound designer Craig Berkey.

Vancouver sound designer Craig Berkey is feeling no pressure ahead of Sunday’s Academy Awards, where he’ll be up for two trophies for his work on the Coen brothers’ American Western True Grit. After all, he’s been through this before (he was also up for an Oscar

for his work on 2007’s No Country for Old Men), and he knows that nominees in his category can let loose at the bash, unlike the big stars who are under the microscope. “All the sound categories are seated together, just up from the people who are on camera all the time, so we have a lot of fun,” said Berkey.

But he’s not feeling any stress

“There’s a lot less pressure on us, really. You walk down the red carpet and nobody’s wanting to interview you and no one’s taking your picture so you can look around, you can do whatever you want to do. It’s fun. I think for some of the other people it’s hard work.” Berkey, who is also a rerecording mixer, is nominated in two categories: sound editing and sound mixing

on True Grit, about a tough U.S. marshal (Jeff Bridges) who helps a headstrong young girl (Hailee Steinfeld) track down her father’s killer. Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper co-star in the adaptation of Charles Portis’ 1968 novel. Skip Lievsay is Berkey’s co-nominee in the sound editing category, which also includes Inception, Toy Story 3, Tron: Legacy and Unstoppable. In the category of sound mixing, Berkey is also co-nominated with Lievsay. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Lohan fears being returned to prison Judge implying nothing will keep the star out of jail for her latest offence ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Lindsay Lohan has put off her legal troubles for another two weeks, but friends say she’s terrified that going back to jail is inevitable. “I’m not sure if she can survive this,” a source tells Popeater. “She is so terrified and frightened that we all fear her addictions will kick in again to help her numb the fear.” During Lohan’s court appearance this week, she and her lawyer declined a plea deal that would’ve involved eight months in jail. But the judge in the case seemed to imply Lohan couldn’t avoid jail “I don’t care that you’re Lindsay Lohan vs. Jane Doe,” Judge Keith L. Schwartz told her. “This case does involve jail time. Period. If you plead in front of me, you are going to jail.” METRO

And I remember that. It’s one of my earliest memories.” It wasn’t much longer until he tried it again. “I seriously started drinking probably when I was about 12,” he says. “I stole pot from my father when I was eight years old.” Arquette also reveals that it was Cox and his sister, Patricia Arquette, who staged an intervention after New Year’s convincing the actor to check into rehab.

Oscar Menu

Ice Wine Chocolate Truffles

Wondering what the stars will be dining on following the Oscars? The menu created by Wolfgang Puck and chef Matt Bencivenga is inspired by Latin flavours, from classic paella to coastal seafood, along with signature favourites like gold-dusted chocolate Oscars. Some of the specific delicacies include sushi; smoked salmon on flatbread with caviar and creme fraiche; and a vegetable paella with saffron and white wine. METRO

Celebrate the Oscars with a hint of Canadiana and include the sweet nectar of Ice Wine. My favourite is Stratus Ice Wine Red 2007 with its strawberry rhubarb notes. Its sweet decadence with the chocolate is the perfect accompaniment to celebrate all the winners!

Ingredients: • 8 oz (250 g) high-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped • 3/4 cup (175 mL) unsalted butter • 3/4 cup (175 mL) 35% whipping cream • 3 tbsp (45 mL) ice wine Coating • 12 oz (375 g) high-quality bittersweet or white chocolate, chopped • Gold flakes for garnishing

Preparation:

In heatproof bowl set over hot water, melt chocolate and butter. Let cool to room temperature for about 1 hour.

Extravagant Oscar Popcorn For a night when celebs bask in the luxury of all things expensive, only the finest ingredients could create buttery rich popcorn as good as this one. And only a champagne flute will do for serving.

Ingredients: • 2 tbsp (25 mL) canola oil • 1/2 cup (125 mL) popcorn kernels • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter • 1/4 cup (50 mL) freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese • Pinch each Fleur de sel and freshly ground black pepper

The Terracotta Warriors are on display in Montreal until June 26.

Terracotta army occupies Montreal Missed the warriors in Toronto? Head to Quebec to catch them before their return to China The Warrior Emperor’s army has occupied Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts. Stone-faced statues of soldiers stand erect in the stunning exhibit, which traces pivotal moments in Chinese history and springs from one of the greatest archeological finds of the 20th century. Bronze swords, ceremonial helmets and armour made from limestone panels line display cases. Implements and statues of animals and birds give a glimpse into days long past. There are even — oddly enough — stone sex toys that were placed into the emperor’s tomb for the afterlife. It’s the last stop for The Warrior Emperor and Chi-

na’s Terracotta Army exhibit, originally set to visit four Canadian cities but in the end stopping in two — Toronto and Montreal. The Toronto show ended Jan. 2 and the Montreal show opened Feb. 11. It will run until June 26. The exhibit at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum was hailed as the venue’s most popular exhibit in a decade and Montreal organizers are optimistic Canadians will line up to get a last look before it returns to China. “You don’t know when you’re going to see them again, at least in Canada,” said Laura Vigo, the Montreal museum’s curator of Asian art. Chinese authorities nixed plans to take the show to Calgary and Victo-

ria, citing new regulations that only allow the artifacts to be outside China for a year at a time. The Chinese are reportedly worried prolonged travel might further deteriorate the artifacts, which date back 2,200 years. Vigo acknowledged the Chinese are understandably strict about how the statues are manipulated. “They are delicate but most of these pieces are very hard, very, very heavy as well,” she said. “Most of the pieces were found broken in the pit so there was already a process of re-assemblage, of remounting them after they were found.” The more than 240 artifacts in the show were among those uncovered in careful archeological prob-

ing since the 1970s, when workers digging a well in Xi’an in China’s Shaanxi province uncovered the first emperor’s massive funeral complex. It was eventually found that Emperor Qin Shihuangm, who united war-

4 sports Raptors preview

Suns at Raptors 7 p.m. TV: TSN 2 Radio: Fan 590

Phoenix (28-27) is battling for a playoff spot, sitting in 10th in the Western Conference, two spots out of a post-season appearance. A recent surge has helped — the Suns have won eight of their last 11 games. Canada’s Steve Nash wasn’t an all-star this season, but he continues to put up all-star stats — his 11.3 assists a game ranking him second in the league. Former Raptor Vince Carter, on the other hand, has seen his playing time dwindle. He played just 16 minutes — scoring six points — in the Suns’ win over Atlanta Wednesday. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Leafs edging into playoff picture

RICHARD WOLOWICZ/GETTY IMAGES

Win over Canadiens leaves team in 10th place, with ninth in sight Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak each scored twice as the surging Toronto Maple Leafs got their first goals and points in three visits to Montreal this season with a 5-4 victory over the Canadiens Thursday night. Kessel added two assists for a season-high four points and Bozak, who ended a 14-game run without a point, also had an assist for Toronto (27-27-7), which moved past Atlanta into 10th in the NHL Eastern Conference, only one point behind Buffalo, which has two games in hand. Brett Lebda also scored for the Leafs, who are 8-2-2 since the all-star break. Jeff Halpern, Michael Cammalleri, James Wisniewski and Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal (32-23-7), which has only two wins in its last nine games. The Canadiens played their first home game following a western road trip. Montreal had a 35-28 edge in shots, and Toronto rookie James Reimer, making a sixth straight start, improved to 10-4-2 on the season. Carey Price had shut out Toronto twice in Montreal this season, and coach Jacques Martin’s decision to start backup Alex Auld in goal proved disastrous. Auld allowed three goals on nine shots before he was yanked at 13:02 of the first period. After Halpern tipped in Roman Hamrlik’s shot to

give Montreal the early lead, Kessel picked a top corner on a power play to tie it at 7:54. Kessel grabbed a loose puck behind the Montreal net and stuffed it past Auld on another man advantage at 12:03 and, only 59 seconds later, Lebda was left all alone to walk in and score to bring Price into the game. It was Lebda’s first of the season and ended an 85-game drought dating to Oct. 22, 2009. While Toronto had four straight power plays in the first, Montreal got three in a row early in the second and scored twice — a wrist shot from the slot by Cammalleri at 3:42 and a point blast by Wisniewski at 4:02. But Bozak got one back from the slot on another Toronto power play at 8:30 for a 4-3 lead and the Leafs’ first goal against Price at the Bell Centre this season. Bozak was in front again to convert Kessel’s pass from behind the net to seal the win at 4:26 of the third.

Blue Jays pitcher Jesse Litsch throws during spring training Thursday in Dunedin, Fla.

Unlucky Litsch taking a run at starter’s spot

Elbow surgery will end Wainwright’s season St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and miss the entire season. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed the news Thursday from spring training camp. He said he learned the severity of the injury Wednesday night after the 29-year-old pitcher sought a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles. A surgery date is not set. “It’s not a real surprise to us but certainly a disappointment,” Mozeliak said. “As we look to the future now we certainly believe we still have a strong starting rotation. Now we’re going to have to look to try to fill it in terms of a fifth spot.” Wainwright, who won 20 games last year and was runner-up for the NL Cy Young Award, felt arm stiffness after Monday’s throwing session. He had experienced soreness toward the end of last sea-

The six-foot-seven Wainwright went 2011 with a 2.42 earnedrun average last season, finishing behind Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay in Cy Young balloting. son and didn’t pitch in September. He had minor arm issues in 1998 and 2004. His loss leaves the team with a big hole in a starting rotation that for now includes Chris Carpenter, Kyle Lohse, Jaime Garcia and Jake Westbrook. “That’s a big guy to miss,” Lohse said. “We still got to go out there and play. Nobody is going to feel sorry for us. We still have to go out there and do our jobs.” The Cardinals entered spring training with a rotation that Mozeliak said he would stack up against any in baseball.

“You’re losing an ace,” Mozeliak said. “It’s not something you can replace overnight. I would also say we have four quality pitchers. It’s not exactly like we have no bullets left.” Manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday, before learning the extent of the injury, that he didn’t expect the Cardinals to try to replace Wainwright through a trade or free agent signing of someone like Kevin Millwood or possibly Pedro Martinez. But that could change. “You follow camps and see if something develops where it’s a good fit,” La Russa said. “But right now it’s not a good fit because we’re going to cover it from within. We’ll pay attention though, that’s part of what you do in spring training. We have scouts all over and we’ll watch box scores.” La Russa has six or seven pitchers in camp who will have the opportunity to join the rotation. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

‘A fresh start is always good, especially coming off two years of injuries,’ says Jays’ former 13-game winner Over and over Jesse Litsch was told last season that his arm speed simply wasn’t there. He heard it from Toronto Blue Jays pitching coach Bruce Walton. He heard from former bullpen coach Rick Langford. And retired manager Cito Gaston routinely wondered if his righthander had come back too soon from ligament-replacement surgery on his right elbow. The argument turned out to be moot as surgery on a labral tear in his right hip halted the 25-year-old’s comeback. With time to heal and strengthen the elbow, he realizes they were right and he was wrong. “I can see why they were saying last year that my arm speed wasn’t there, and I wasn’t agreeing with them,” said Litsch. “Feeling how I feel now compared to last year, the arm speed is there ... I’m able to throw everything with good snap.” That’s good news for both the Jays and Litsch, who was establishing himself as a solid middle-of-therotation starter before his elbow blew up after just two outings in 2009. He comes into training camp as a leading contender for one of the two available spots in the rotation, in competition with

“My arm speed is unreal right now from a personal standpoint. I haven’t felt this good in a long time.” BLUE JAYS PITCHER JESSE LITSCH

Kyle Drabek, Marc Rzepczynski, Scott Richmond, Jo-Jo Reyes, Zach Stewart and Brad Mills. Positive reinforcement came earlier this week while facing hitters for the first time. Pitching to Aaron Hill, Litsch had his command back and painted the corners with cutters and change-ups. New manager John Farrell has gone out of his way to praise Litsch, indicating the team has high hopes for him. “We haven’t lost sight of the 13-game winner from a few years ago, his competitiveness and his ability to pitch,” said Farrell. “What I mean by that is his ability to make pitches in key spots. He’s certainly not afraid and doesn’t fear contact.” Litsch has always made up for average velocity with a biting cutter, deceptive change-up and curveball. He made his debut as a 22-year-old in 2007 and blossomed in 2008 in the

second half after a stint in the minors. He finished the year 13-9 with a 3.58 earned-run average. He made just two outings in 2009, and then went 1-5 with a 5.79 ERA in nine outings after being called up last year. Then hip surgery shut him down. “It’s been a struggle, up and down, but it’s a part of adversity that you have to overcome,” Litsch said of the injuries. “I never really get down, I’m pretty mentally strong so I’m able to get through stuff like that. If it was to happen again, who knows, but it’s a matter of being able to stay level-headed and go out there and get ready for the year.”

Deadline deals

With two blockbuster trades having taken place earlier in the week, the NBA’s deadline day saw few big names move, but a few notable deals

The trade

The struggling Cleveland Cavaliers acquired point guard Baron Davis and an unprotected 2011 first-round draft pick from the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Mo Williams and forward Jamario Moon.

59

WEEKEND, FEBRUARY 25-27, 2011

Why it went down

Davis is owed $29 million US over the next two seasons, so moving him gives the Clippers a lot of financial flexibility. Cleveland general manager Chris Grant’s goal has been to add draft picks to replenish his roster, and he will go into June’s draft with two firstround and two second-round picks.

The Charlotte Bobcats agreed to trade forward Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trail Blazers for a package that includes two firstround picks, centre Joel Przybilla and reserve forward Dante Cunningham.

The move gives Portland another athletic scorer and rebounder just as Brandon Roy returned from knee surgery. With two first-round picks and lowering their salary-cap figure by $8 million for next year, the Bobcats will have more flexibility to reshape the roster in the next few seasons.

The Boston Celtics traded Kendrick Perkins, their starting centre who had recently returned from a knee injury sustained in Game 6 of the NBA finals, along with Nate Robinson to Oklahoma City for Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, a future first-round draft pick and cash.

Boston got back Green, the power forward it drafted at No. 5 in 2007, but traded to Seattle in the deal for Ray Allen. But with Perkins gone, and Shaquille O’Neal and Jermaine O’Neal battling injuries most of the season, interior defence is now a question mark for a team that appeared to have loaded up on it this season.

Senators pull plug on Kovalev The Ottawa Senators broke the bank to sign Alex Kovalev two summers ago. Instead of being the game breaker they thought he would be, however, Kovalev only managed to break a few hearts, and Thursday the Senators decided to cut their losses. Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray continued his radical overhaul of the team’s roster ahead of Monday’s trade deadline by trading Kovalev to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a conditional seventh-round draft choice. If the Penguins win a playoff round and Kovalev, who turned 38 Thursday, plays in at least half the games, the pick becomes a sixth rounder. Kovalev becomes the fifth regular to leave Ottawa’s lineup in two weeks, following Mike Fisher, Chris Kelly, Jarkko Ruutu and Brian Elliott out the dressing-room door of a team that will miss the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. The move also brings a close to the talented-but-

ALEX KOVALEV

frustrating forward’s time in Ottawa after he signed a $10-million US, two-year contract to join the Senators as a free agent in the summer of 2009, but just never seemed to be a good fit. “I thought he could be, I think talent wise he should have been,” Murray said. “I don’t know that he was happy here all of the time. I think maybe he felt that his role on the team could have been a little different.” The Senators also announced Thursday that they had claimed 28-yearold forward Marek Svatos off waivers from the Nashville Predators.

WEEKEND, FEBRUARY 25-27, 2011

Kings take step towards relocation The Sacramento Kings could be the next NBA franchise on the move. In the latest and perhaps strongest signal yet that the Kings are considering a new home, the franchise filed a request Thursday for an extension on the NBA’s March 1 deadline to inform the league if it intends to seek permission to relocate

next season. The Kings would have the opportunity to discuss their options at the NBA’s board of governors meetings April 14-15, NBA spokesman Tim Frank confirmed in an email to The Associated Press. The board is considering the Kings’ request. The filing took Sacra-

mento mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson by surprise. Johnson said he learned of the decision from a Google news alert and was upset he wasn’t notified by the Kings first. He wrote on his Twitter account that it’s “time to fight for our economic and cultural future. Kings relocation is bigger

than a basketball team, and Sac deserves better.” “We’re going to fight. The deal is not done,” Johnson later said at a news conference in Sacramento. “We know they’re looking elsewhere. But it’s not a done deal. If it was a done deal, they would have filed on March 1.” Sacramento has strug-
