Fighting for flight Toronto woman living in Japan for last 4 years forced to flee home near stricken reactor Son requires electricity to breathe Attempting to return to Canada When Mairead Cavanagh’s house in Mito, a Japanese city 140 kilometres south of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, began to tremble Friday afternoon, it meant trouble. Cavanagh’s son Maleek, 2, was born with subglottic stenosis, a rare condition that means part of his throat is too narrow to breathe through. He has a tracheostomy tube, a surgically inserted opening in his neck, and requires an electrically powered suction machine to clear his airway several times an hour. The quake presented many dangers for Maleek. Any debris caught in the tube could suffocate him. Water is also dangerous if it enters his airway, his mother said. And Mito, where there have been threats of rolling blackouts that could last up to five

hours, remains unsafe. The family was forced to hit the road. They made it to Tokyo, where they were admitted at an international hospital that, so far, has had constant power Cavanagh and her husband have been making calls to the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo and to foreign affairs officials in Ottawa, and were told their file was flagged for special attention. But, since no evacuation is planned, the family has so far had no help flying out of the country, according to Cavanagh. Cavanagh isn’t sure what medical equip-

ment will be necessary for such a flight. Tom Lepine, chief operating officer of Ornge, a flight-based medical transport provider in Ontario, says a case like Maleek’s would require a dedicated evacuation team that includes a specialized pediatric staff. But Dr. Kevin Higgins, a head and neck staff surgeon at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, says the risk of flying Maleek home with a flight that long is too great. “When you start going afar, you’re asking for trouble in a very small person,” he said, adding the toddler has a better bet among Japanese doctors. A “Help Baby Maleek Now” Facebook page has allowed friends to share information with the couple. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE MORE COVERAGE FROM JAPAN, PAGES 12-15

The number of jobs in Canada rose for the third consecutive month in February but the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 7.8 per cent. But environmental researchers say the Harper government could have created three times as many jobs if it had invested stimulus funding in climate projects.

Rapper pleads not guilty to gun charges TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

A Toronto rapper who has toured with global hip-hop phenom Drake is hoping a judge will soon clear him of gun possession charges that have prevented him from travelling outside Canada. Wearing a suit and tie — minus his signature large pendant — Raynford Humphrey, a.k.a. P. Reign, pleaded not guilty yesterday to nine firearms-related offences in Ontario Superior Court.

His lawyer, Edward Greenspan, is asking the judge hearing the case without a jury to stay the charges on the grounds police committed numerous charter violations after they stopped Humphrey driving his Cadillac CTS three years ago. Humphrey’s brother Jason, who was in the back seat, and Raymond Powell, a passenger in the front, have pleaded guilty to pos-

sessing three semi-automatic pistols. The location of the guns will be the “sole issue” at trial, Crown attorney Ryan Wilson told Justice Michael Code, who is first hearing evidence on the charter application. Police took the three men into custody and found the guns after searching the car without a warrant.

Worries return as condos go up by plant Japanese crisis reigniting fears about evacuation, exit routes to highway from area near Pickering nuclear site, says councillor Japan’s nuclear emergency has revived some Pickering residents’ fears over three condo towers being built near the city’s nuclear plant. It’s “mega-irresponsible” to add 1,400 people to an already congested area along what would be a main escape route in an emergency, charges Doris Hopper, who lives behind the condo site at Liverpool Road and Bayly Street, south of Highway 401. She is calling for a halt on construction of the highrises “at this dangerous location” until the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission can do a review. The project, called San Francisco by the Bay, is about three kilometres from the Pickering generating station. The intersection — the closest to the GO

Unsellables co-host accused of extortion

TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

TORONTO POLICE HANDOUT/THE CANADIAN PRESS

On camera According to his profile on the HGTV website:

Barrington Anthony Sayers

A contractor and host of a home renovations show is facing charges after an extortion investigation, Toronto police said yesterday. Police say Barrington Anthony Sayers, also known as Anthony Sayers, co-host of the HGTV show the Unsellables, was hired by a woman Feb. 1. It’s alleged that Sayers did a substandard job, overbilled the victim, and criminally harassed and extorted her. “There are allegations that the actions and behaviours of Mr. Sayers were causing the victim to fear for her safety,” said Det. Rob Ermacora of the criminal harassment charge. Sayers has been charged with two counts of criminal harassment and single counts of extortion and attempted fraud. As for the fraud charges, Ermacora said it is alleged that Sayers was “overbilling and billing for work

Anthony Sayers was previously the co-host of W Network’s series Me, My House And I. A graduate of George Brown College, he has worked as a skilled professional in the building trades for the past 17 years. He operates his own construction company and has a large and dedicated clientele in the Greater Toronto Area.

that was never done.” Sayers is the owner and operator of a general contracting company called Anthony Sayers Custom Builder and Designer. Police are now searching for more victims. “We believe this is not something that happens just once, which is why we’re looking into other potential victims of Mr. Sayers,” said Ermacora. Ermacora said the best tip he can give to avoid being a victim is “do your research before you hire someone, try to get recommendations if possible, and if you feel you’re becoming a victim of fraud, definitely contact the police.” Sayers is scheduled to appear in court March 28.

GO Transit president Gary McNeil says there is a major demand for GO to increase its train services.

GO splurges $125M on railway coaches Ontario Transportation Minister Kathleen Wynne says the infrastructure investment will create and support jobs and support the economy GO Transit is spending $125 million to purchase 50 bi-level railway coaches from Bombardier for its inter-regional commuter service into Toronto. The 162-passenger coaches will expand the system’s capacity by 8,000 commuters a day. Production of the coaches is scheduled to begin in June at Bombardier’s facility in Thunder Bay, with deliveries beginning in the fall.

The order demonstrates “our customer’s renewed confidence in the products we deliver,” said Raymond Bachant, North American president of Bombardier Transportation. The Bombardier-designed double-decker coaches have been part of GO Transit’s fleet since 1978. GO Transit operates Canada’s largest commuter rail network, linking Hamilton and

communities surrounding the Greater Toronto Area with Canada’s largest city. Bombardier Transportation is the Berlin-based rail division of aerospace and railway manufacturer Bombardier Inc. It said the railway car is the most popular multilevel commuter rail car in North America — in use in 13 major cities, including Montreal, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Dallas. The order will include

the 1,000th car manufactured in Thunder Bay. Bombardier’s Thunder Bay plant is also building new subway and light-rail cars for the Toronto Transit Commission and Metrolinx, the provincial government agency that runs Go Transit. On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Bombardier’s shares were ahead three cents at $6.13 at the close of yesterday’s market. THE CANADIAN PRESS

India threatened after capturing 61 pirates HANDOUT/PRESS INFORMATION BUREAU/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sailors rescue 13 crew members from hijacked ship Sunday night Five dozen pirates living on a hijacked ship that served as a roving pirate base jumped into the Arabian Sea yesterday after the Indian navy fired on the vessel in self-defence, the navy said yesterday. The navy captured 61 pirates who fled the battle and the fire that broke out aboard the hijacked vessel. The battle is the latest example of the pirates’ increased use of violence. A pirate in Somalia threatened Indian sailors and the Indian government with targeted attacks in retaliation for the arrests. The Indian navy said a

patrol aircraft spotted the mothership Friday while responding to another vessel reporting a pirate attack. The pirates aborted the hijacking attempt and tried to escape on the mothership. When the Indian ships closed in Sunday night, the pirates fired on them. The hijacked vessel burst into flames when the Indian navy returned fire, the navy said. The pirates had hijacked the Mozambiqueflagged Vega 5 in December and used it as a mothership.

Captured pirates sit under guard yesterday aboard an Indian naval ship in the Arabian Sea, off the coast of Kochi, India, in this photo from the Government of India Press Information Bureau.

Ontario considers cameras in courts

TANYA TALAGA/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Attorney General Chris Bentley says society hasn’t ‘fallen apart’ since the U.S. started televising trials NDP justice critic supports the idea Canada’s largest court system is opening the door to delivering trials to the public via the small screen. Ontario’s attorney general says he’s open to the idea of allowing cameras in courtrooms, and says

the time is right to canvas judges, Crown attorneys and defence lawyers on their opinions. “I’m interested in the views of people as to whether we should move forward,” Chris Bentley

said. Peter Kormos, a lawyer and justice critic for Ontario’s New Democrats, says having cameras in courtrooms would bolster the openness of courts and accessibility to justice.

On camera In 2007, Ontario put cameras in the Court of Appeal as part of a pilot project.

THE CANADIAN PRESS

A report on the project recommended the use of cameras in Ontario courts, saying their images have “great potential” as a learning tool for students and lawyers. Media said the cameras promoted transparency and reduced the risk of errors and bias in reporting. The only caveat was the potential that sensitive information could be released inadvertently and the high capital cost of installing the cameras.

RCMP to probe Tory staffer over interference

L A S T C H ANC OUTLET EVE E

Sebastien Togneri admits he held back document bound for media Minister calls for investigation

N

ěģDAYS ONLYT 9B8GÄ?GI

SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

The federal government has called in the RCMP to investigate political interference by a Conservative staffer in an access-toinformation request. Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose has asked the Mounties to probe the actions of Sebastien Togneri, who worked for Christian Paradis when Paradis was minister of the department. In July 2009, Togneri demanded that Public Works officials “unrelease� a document about to be sent to The Canadian Press, and then to censor it heavily. The withheld document was a 133-page annual report on how well the de-

Rona Ambrose

partment manages its massive real estate portfolio. Ambrose asked for the police probe after an investigation by Canada’s information commissioner found that Togneri clearly interfered with the request

when he had no legal authority to do so. Suzanne Legault’s report into the complaint by The Canadian Press also found that all but one public servant handling the request failed to uphold the law. Legault’s damaging findings are to be formally presented to Parliament next week in a special report. Togneri admitted his “mistake� before a parliamentary committee last year, and Public Works officials called the incident an isolated case. He later resigned after reports of other access-to-information requests he appeared to have interfered with.

RISK OF MELTDOWN Fuel rods in all 3 operational reactors at Fukushima Dai-ichi plant appear to be melting: Top Japanese official A third explosion in four days rocked a crippled nuclear power plant in tsunami-ravaged northeastern Japan early today as authorities struggled to avert a catastrophic release of radiation. The cascading troubles at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex were set in motion when last Friday’s quake and tsunami knocked out power, crippling the cooling systems needed to keep nuclear fuel from going into full meltdown. The latest blast happened in the plant’s Unit 2 near a suppression pool, which removes heat under a reactor vessel, plant

Overall, 1,500 more than 1,500 people have been scanned for radiation exposure in the area, officials said.

owner Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. No one was reported injured, but plant workers were temporarily evacuated. Japanese authorities have been injecting seawater as a coolant of last resort, and advising nearby residents to stay inside to avoid contamination. “It’s like a horror movie,” said 49-year-old Kyoko Nambu, as she stood on a hillside overlooking her ruined hometown of Soma, about 40 kilometres from the plant. That compounded challenges already faced by the Tokyo government as it dealt with twin disasters that flattened entire communities and left as many as 10,000 or more dead. It also raised global concerns about the safety of nuclear power at a time

when it has seen a resurgence as an alternative to fossil fuels. Japanese authorities said there have been no large-scale radiation releases, though they had detected temporary elevations of radiation. Tens of thousands of people around affected reactors were evacuated. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency said the Japanese government has asked the agency to send experts to help.

Upon hearing another tsunami warning, a father tries to flee for safety with his just reunited four-month-old daughter. The baby was spotted by a Japanese Self-Defence Force member in the rubble of tsunami-torn Ishinomaki yesterday, three days after a powerful earthquake-triggered tsunami hit northeast Japan.

RISES HIROTO SEKIGUCHI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Scientists don’t fear worst-case scenario Outside experts are trying to determine the level of risk based on the limited public pronouncements so far by Japanese officials. While scientists said the situation was serious, it didn’t seem to be careening toward the worst fears of a Chornobyl-like total meltdown, they said. Donald Olander, professor emeritus of nuclear engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, said exposed uranium fuel rods are a crucial problem. Water keeps them from getting too hot, melting and burning their casing and melting the uranium fuel pellets inside. The more time that passes with the reactor containment vessels intact, the less the chance of a catastrophe because “nuclear decay” lessens some of the enormous heat in the reactor, said James Stubbins, head of nuclear engineering at University of Illinois.

After tsunami, village vanishes

Tech giants offer relief support Google, Twitter and other technology companies are finding ways to help following last week’s earthquake in Japan. Google Inc. has an online “person finder” for people seeking information about a missing person. Microsoft Corp. is offering free technical support and temporary software licences to companies affected by the earthquake. It has also pledged

$250,000 in cash. Twitter is trying to help organize the flood of information flowing through its system. It is suggesting people use certain tags for general earthquake information, requests for rescue and other related topics. Amazon.com Inc. and Yahoo Inc. have links on their home pages encouraging people to donate to the relief efforts.

Saito survivor cites authorities as saying at least 4,500 of 17,000 inhabitants of wider northeastern Japanese region believed dead It’s hard to believe there was ever a village here at all. The tsunami that devastated Japan’s coast rolled in through a tree-lined ocean cove and obliterated nearly everything in its path in this village of about 250 people and 70 or so houses. Now, three days later, Saito is a moonscape of death and debris, a hellish glimpse into the phenomenal destruction caused by the killer wave that followed Japan’s most powerful earthquake on record and one of the five strongest on Earth in the past 110 years. In Saito and nearby ar-

‘It is all gone’ Today, everything in Saito is spoken about in the past tense. “That was city hall,” said Takao Oyama, a 48-year-old construction worker, gesturing toward a twostorey white building that stood alone near the beach, leaning at an angle into a sheet of mud and sand. “That was our elementary school,” he said, pointing to a three-storey building a

few hundred metres away, whose entire facade had been ripped off and was covered in black and yellow ocean buoys. Most everything else has disappeared. One crumpled sign indicated there had once been a train station here. It was hard to tell where, though. There were no tracks, no trains, no station. “We can never live here again,” Oyama said as he rested with his wife on a concrete ledge of the broken tarmac road.

A Libyan rebel prays next to a pick-up truck carrying a machine-gun yesterday in Ajdabiya, Libya.

Sundown brings Libyan rebels out France, Britain step up calls to isolate Gadhafi Moammar Gadhafi’s warplanes, artillery and mortar shells can control huge swaths of territory by day, including oil ports, rebel supply routes and even hostile towns. Rebels say antigovernment forces can still return in darkness to take advantage of Gadhafi’s own thin supply lines and overstretched ground troops.

The eastern port city of Brega has gone back and forth with the setting of the sun in recent days and is key to the battle for Libya’s oil centres — so key that both sides claimed control of it nearly simultaneously yesterday. The regime offensive appears to be hampered by a lack of manpower: They can drive

out rebels with barrages, but not necessarily hold the territory. Rebels didn’t dare come out in the open yesterday in Brega, with a spokesman saying they were taking cover instead in the industrial oil area where they believed Gadhafi forces wouldn’t fire. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Provincial budget set for March 29 ‘Ontario a much more attractive place for businesses to invest’: McGuinty

Different levels of government, different policies The Liberals are not alone in harbouring policy differences between federal and provincial parties. A senior federal Conservative official said yesterday that Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s focus for his budget March 22 is on “what’s good for the country” — not what might help provincial Tory Leader Tim Hudak this fall. “There’s not a lot of

Dwight Duncan was once a key adviser to Michael Ignatieff. But when the Ontario finance minister introduces a budget March 29 — days after an expected election call in Ottawa — pressing concerns at Queen’s Park will trump the political fortunes of the federal Liberal leader.

Net worth rises for Canadians Canadians’ net worth rose 2.2 per cent in the last three months of 2010 thanks to rising home values and a rebound in stock markets, Statistics Canada says.

Collectively, the net worth of Canadians totalled $6.2 trillion at the end of 2010. But Statistics Canada noted that Canadians continue to take on debt, with the ratio of household debt to disposable income at a record 149 per cent. Once interest rates rise, servicing debt will become more difficult.

Uranium stocks hit as nuclear fears spread SEAN GALLUP/GETTY IMAGES

Drop in share price ‘driven by emotion’: Cameco CEO Jerry Grandey

THE CANADIAN PRESS

Would you like Rihanna with that burger? Toronto-based Mood Media has signed a deal to provide music and sound systems to 258 McDonald’s restaurants in Poland. The company works in 800 retail chains in 30 countries and provides them with instore music and other products. Last month, it acquired Finnish music provider Pelika for $9.8 million US.

Anti-nuclear activists demonstrate yesterday at the Chancellory in Berlin, in reaction to the dramatic situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. Analysts say that, in the long term, demand for nuclear energy — and Canadian-mined uranium — is unlikely to subside.

THE CANADIAN PRESS

The world’s largest uranium miner sought to allay concerns over the future of the global nuclear industry yesterday as trouble continued at a Japanese power plant damaged in last week’s earthquake and tsunami. “Looking beyond the events of recent days, we at Cameco don’t see a dramatic effect on the fundamentals of our uranium business,” said Cameco Corp. CEO Jerry Grandey. Cameco’s shares took a beating on the Toronto Stock Exchange yesterday, tumbling nearly 13 per cent to close at $31.70. It wasn’t alone: Uranium One fell nearly 28 per cent and Denison Mines Corp. more than 22 per cent. Uranium is a major economic engine for Saskatchewan, where Cameco is headquartered. About 10 to 12 per cent of Cameco’s current volumes are bound for Japan, with

that number expected to rise to between 18 to 20 per cent in the long term. But even as Switzerland and Germany put the brakes on their nuclear programs, observers said China, India and Japan will likely continue to build nuclear energy plants, which means the uranium stock drops could be a buying opportunity for investors who believe the world’s nuclear energy demand will support the industry long term. As for the wider impact of the Japanese disaster, analysts predicted it will have little effect on the Canadian economy. In the long view, both global and Japanese gross domestic product will likely get a boost from the massive rebuilding effort, economists said, which means Canadian exporters of copper, oil, lumber and other materials stand to benefit.

Quake could cost insurers $60B The global insurance industry may have to pay out as much as $60 billion US when the damage is tallied from Japan’s earthquake and tsunami, which would make the disaster the most expensive behind hurricane Katrina, early estimates suggest. Global insurance stocks were battered yesterday, but analysts stressed there are some mitigating factors, including the fact that damage to residential property is covered by a state-backed system and

s t r o p The ll are of ca ous fabul For information on Holland America Line cruising call Tracy at 1-800-665-4981 ext 7236

nuclear damage is excluded from policies. Those elements mean insurance costs will likely fall short of those associated with hurricane Katrina in 2005. Moody’s ratings agency said a wildcard factor was the potential for so-called “business-interruption losses,” which are influenced by damage to power and transportation infrastructure. “We believe that estimating claims will be a protracted process, as the size

and scope of the event will place significant strain on insurers’ claims adjustment resources,” the agency said in a report. “Moreover, aftershocks could last for weeks, causing additional insured losses.” Fear of the unknown weighed heavily on some of the world’s biggest reinsurance companies yesterday. Munich Re shares were down 7.7 per cent from their close Thursday, the day before the earthquake, while Hannover Re was off 7.6 per cent. In

New York, Aflac Inc. dropped 3.6 per cent. “The market has probably overreacted this morning,” said Christian Muschick, an analyst at merchant bank Silvia Quandt & Cie. AG in Frankfurt. But the impact on the biggest reinsurers will be less than it was from the global financial crisis, and the companies will probably be able to raise their rates in the wake of the disaster.

APPOINTMENT FATIGUE OVERWHELMING She says ...

JESSICA NAPIER

For the period of time between the end of university and landing a real job, I didn’t have any health insurance. So I did what every unpaid intern does — I stopped going to the doctor, the dentist and every other medical professional in an attempt to save money.

W

hen those benefits finally kicked in I started to take advantage in a big way. With the promise of financial reimbursement I began filling up my lunch hours, evenings and even weekends with a long

list of appointments. I didn’t just schedule an annual checkup — I enlisted a diverse team of medical experts to poke, prod and examine every inch of me. For more than a year I was under the impression there was nothing wrong with me. Now, there are an endless number of reasons to visit doctors, dentists, naturopaths (because maybe Western medicine doesn’t have all the answers) and a whole range of specialists. All of these appointments have to be painstakingly organized in my BlackBerry and colour coded in an agenda (yes, that near obsolete thing with paper pages) just in case my digital calendar malfunctions. My time management skills may be improving but I’m starting to develop serious appointment

fatigue. Even my efforts to improve my own health — the highintensity spinning classes, the backbreaking boot camp — necessitate more medical intervention. I have to recruit chiropractors and physiotherapists just to fix the damage I’m doing to myself. My strict schedule of self-improvement has left me feeling overbooked and overwhelmed. Now, even the fun activities — an occasional manicure, a day at the spa — have come to feel more like chores. I have become my own Tiger Mom. It seems the more I focus on taking care of myself, the more anxiety I feel. And I know I’m not the only one. The pressure to push

ourselves toward perfection means there is always something more we can be doing and, as a result, we’re scheduling ourselves to the point of exhaustion. But taking care of yourself shouldn’t feel like a full-time job. Claiming every penny of my insurance plan just because I can might actually be more unhealthy than skipping out on that annual checkup. So I’m done with my tyrannical timetable for now — the only appointment left in my agenda is with an accountant. Because you can always avoid the dentist but you can never, ever avoid your taxes.

Worth mentioning The rapid growth of smartphones and electronic tablets is making the Internet the destination of choice for consumers looking for news, a report released yesterday said. Local, network and cable television news, newspapers, radio and magazines all lost audience last year, according to the Project for Excellence in Journalism, a U.S. research organization that evaluates and studies the performance of the press. News consumption online increased 17 per cent last year from the year before, the project said in its

eighth annual State Of The News Media survey. The percentage of people who say they get news online at least three times a week surpassed newspapers for the first time. It was second only to local TV news as the most popular news platform and seems poised to pass that medium, too, project director Tom Rosenstiel

said. Local TV news has been the most popular format since the 1960s, when its growth was largely responsible for the death of afternoon newspapers, he said. People are just becoming accustomed to having the Internet available in their pockets on phones or small tablets, he said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

From Wisteria Lane to neurosurgeon FRAZER HARRISON/GETTY IMAGES

Dana Delany takes the lead in new TV series Body of Proof Like her character, the actress had an accident where she injured her hands NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

After three years of doing domestic battle with five other female leads on Desperate Housewives, Dana Delany is taking the lead in Body of Proof. Delany plays Megan Hunt, a brilliant neurosurgeon who turns to forensics after a car accident impairs the use of her hands. How did this project come to you?

It kind of came out of the blue. I was, you know, very happily on Desperate Housewives, and I got a call from the head of ABC saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed having you on Housewives but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much longer youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be on the show.â&#x20AC;? And then he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we have this other show weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like you to think about.â&#x20AC;? And I was kind of taken aback, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not stupid. I saw the handwriting on the wall, so I thought, All right. Why not? Why not try it? Is it true you have a strange connection to your character on this show?

Dana Delany stars in the new ABC show Body of Proof, which premieres March 29.

I had a car accident right before we started shooting that was almost exactly like the show. It was a week before we started

shooting. I was hit by a bus, and I had a concussion, and I broke two fingers. The bus driver asked me for my autograph after she hit me.

No. (laughs) This is what she said. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you see me coming?â&#x20AC;? I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I saw you coming. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bus. I thought you were stopping.â&#x20AC;? And she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know who you are. Could I have your autograph?â&#x20AC;? (laughs) You met with a real female neurosurgeon for research. What was her impression of the show?

She said it was really spoton, because to be a female neurosurgeon at my age would have been almost impossible. You could not really have a life except for that. And she said that she could not get into any medical school because she wanted to be a neurosurgeon. They said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to want to get married and have kids, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to follow through. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to take you in.â&#x20AC;? Finally she got one guy to write her a recommendation saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smart. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passed everything. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll write it, but she is a woman.â&#x20AC;?

NATURE AWAITS AT CANADA BLOOMS

CANADA BLOOMS WITH THE JUNO’S TWO CANADIAN EVENTS STEP INTO THE SPOTLIGHT TOGETHER!

The red carpet has been rolled out at Canada Blooms! “This year, the popular garden and floral design show pays a special tribute to the JUNO Awards 40th Anniversary,” explains Colomba Fuller, Artistic Director, “with a star-studded “JUNO Rocks” Gardens, consisting of

five gardens inspired by JUNO-winning artists!” Oriole Landscaping captures Sarah Harmer’s feelings towards nature in a beautiful rural garden. The singersongwriter-environmentalist is nominated for three JUNO awards this year. There’s a garden tribute to Oscar Peterson, one of Canada’s most loved musicians. Denis Flanagan and Landscape Ontario worked with the pianist’s family to capture the mood and music of the late composer and JUNO Award winner who passed away in 2007. Singer/songwriter Carolyn Dawn

Johnson comes to Canada Blooms with a nomination for Country Album of the Year at the 2011 JUNO Awards! Born in rural Alberta, her garden was created by Evergreen Environments and includes a play area for children (she has two young children herself). A purple and blue colour-scheme is a striking contemporary palette for the garden inspired by Canada’s R&B queen, Jully Black. Sander Design Landscape Architects created the interactive garden. ‘Dramatic’ is a good word to describe internationally acclaimed tenor Ben Heppner who suggested Judith Wright

& Associates create a scene from Parsifal, one of his favourite operas by Richard Wagner. “Canada Blooms also features a JUNO Glam tribute to the flowers, colours and history of the Awards,” explains Fuller. There are several exhibits that depict the evolution of floral arranging and the event itself over the last 40 years. But the sweetest star of all? A lovely, all-sugar JUNO statuette adorns the top of a beautiful 4-tiered cake celebrating the 15th anniversary of Canada Blooms and the 40th anniversary of the JUNO’s. The statuette is on display at the entrance

ALL THE BUZZ!

FLOWER POWER

Canada Blooms is always a showcase for hot gardening trends, says Toronto gardening specialist Frank Ferragine (aka Frankie Flowers), seen regularly on CityNews. Here’s what to watch for. GROW YOUR OWN Because home grown food tastes better. GARDEN GNOMES! Gnomeo and Juliet, the new motion picture, sets the stage for a surge in these garden keepers. SUSTAINABILITY No chemicals and insecticide… less water. XERISCAPING Drought tolerant plants are water-wise. COMMUNITY GARDENS No space, no garden, no problem. BLOOM IQ Scan these plant tags with your smart phone for all the information you need, says Ferragine. GET DIRTY Working in the garden really is good for your body & soul. THE BUZZ LITERALLY! Pollinating plants attract and sustain bees.

Children are going to love the Bienenstock Natural Playground at Canada Blooms... from the 200-year-old willow stumps (that are 7 feet wide and 8 feet tall), at the entrance to the million-year-old boulders inside! The Dundas, Ontario, company creates natural playground spaces that encourage open imaginative play and connect kids to nature when and where they play, explains Adam Bienenstock. At Canada Blooms, the 3,000 square foot playground – for kids and their parents – features boulders to climb on with nets, ropes that go from one boulder to the next, giant logs, slides, an amphitheatre where you can listen to story time and children’s performers! Sand sculptor Karen Fralich will spend the entire show working on 10-foot tall and 30-foot wide forest scene: a child sitting on a tree stump reading a story to forest animals! Other nature play

MATERIALS USED TO BUILD DISPLAYS AND GARDENS AT CANADA BLOOMS 800 tons of sand, 420 cubic yards of mulch, 30 tractor trailer loads of stone and concrete products. EQUIPMENT USED TO MOVE IN MATERIALS 40 tractors, 20-ton wheel loaders, forklifts, telescopic handlers and utility vehicles NUMBER OF PLANTS, TREES AND FLOWERS AT CANADA BLOOMS 250,000 activities include making musical instruments and creating murals. “We have so much nature around us but kids don’t connect,” says Bienenstock, who is also a director on the Child and Nature Alliance. “So we give them the opportunity. And, it’s good for child development, promotes regular activity and healthy weight and gives children something fun to do other than the TV and computer!”

Ontario-grown flowers and plants are fabulous quality, says Albert Graves, Bloemen Decor, Oakville. “Plus, it is a lot friendlier to buy a local plant over one that comes from 6,000 kilometres away.” Here are five locally grown flowers to bring home. PHALAENOPSIS ORCHID Lasting four to six weeks when it blooms, this is a beautiful and easy-to-maintain plant. Just don’t over-water it, says Graves. HELLEBORUS This plant provides a great bloom indoors... then, it can go outside and bloom again in February or March after the frost is gone. It provides a lovely start to spring! BOUGAINVILLIA This beauty is a magnificent summer bloomer. The vine loves the heat, and we love it because it adds a Caribbean feel in the city, says Graves! FREESIAS Stop and inhale deeply around Freesias... their fragrance, like all plant fragrance, makes you feel better, says Graves. And that’s another good reason why you should be filling your home with fresh flowers and plants! GERBERAS These colourful big bloom flowers are ideal as cut flowers. Enjoy.

Q&A

WHAT TYPES OF FLOWERS WILL ATTRACT BUTTERFLIES TO MY GARDEN? Canadian gardening expert Mark Cullen, replies: “Butterflies are attracted primarily to pollen. But butterflies also need a ‘landing pad’ where they can graze and collect the pollen. So choose flat faced pollen-rich perennial flowers including Echinacea [purple cone flower], Leucanthemum superbum [Shasta daisy], tickseed, buttercups and rudebeckia. Annuals that attract a host of butterflies include pot marigold [calendula], zinnias, scabiosa and sun flowers. Keep in mind that butterflies need to drink. Set up a small container of fresh water to attract them and keep them coming back.” Mark Cullen is on stage at Canada Blooms with Denis Flanagan Wednesday through Saturday at 11:30 a.m.; and with his daughter Heather, Friday at 1 p.m.

I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT... HOW CAN I GROW MY OWN FOOD? Jodi Callan, Senior Environmental Planner at Toronto Environment Office replies: “One of the easiest ways is container gardening. Containers can be used anywhere, and they bring an element of beauty to balconies too. A container can be anything that holds soil... such as hanging baskets, planter boxes, old blue boxes, five litre plastic pails. The soil mix you use should be high in plant nutrients and be sure to select plants that are appropriate for the size of the container. Plants that are recommended for container gardening include tomatoes, bush beans, all of the greens (kale, mustard greens, lettuce varieties and spinach), radishes, some carrot varieties and herbs. Of course, there are others good ways to grow your own food including community gardening or renting an allotment garden. Visit www.Toronto.ca/parks for more information.” The City of Toronto’s booth at Canada Blooms has information about urban agriculture and growing your own food.

On separating from Sterling Mad Men star John Slattery plays a similar character in The Adjustment Bureau and Licoln TV ad HEIDI PATALANO

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

When John Slattery began playing the dashing and witty Roger Sterling on

Mad Men, he had no idea that he was signing on to become Roger Sterling, quite literally. The man can’t get away from the character. Whether it’s in his smooth narration of Lin-

coln car commercials or in his latest film, The Adjustment Bureau — in which he appears in a getup strikingly similar to that of the 1960s ad executive — Slattery and Sterling are more and more becoming one

and the same. “I know. I say I have to be careful and it doesn’t seem like I’m being careful,” Slattery confesses, admitting that by taking jobs like the Lincoln gig and the role on Bureau, he might John Slattery, right, stars in The Adjustment Bureau, but is anxious for more Mad Men.

American Express Presale

be pigeon-holing himself. But the role in The Adjustment Bureau — playing an employee of the mysterious Bureau, which tries to keep the world on its proper course — was too good to turn down. “I’m sure it will be like, ‘He’s doing just another version of Roger Sterling,’ but that’s OK,” he says. “It’s an interesting idea and I liked the people that were going to be in it, I liked the script and the character.” Meanwhile, Sterling — er, Slattery — is gearing up

for the fifth season of Mad Men, though at press time no contracts had been signed, and typically this is the time of year when scripts are being composed. But Slattery isn’t worried. “Everyone’s optimistic that it’s coming back, but deals haven’t been worked out somewhere upstairs and so no one knows anything,” he says. “I mean, maybe (creator Matt Weiner) has ideas, but I was just with him for a week and he hasn’t said a thing to me.”

The sexy new period drama The Borgias will air uncensored on Bravo next month. Producers of the Canadian co-production say the sprawling miniseries will air day-and-date with Showtime in the United States beginning April 3. The Borgias is set in 15th century Italy and traces the corrupt rise to power of Rodrigo Borgia, who became Pope Alexander VI. Jeremy Irons stars as the patriarch, while Stratford festival veteran Colm Feore plays his arch nemesis Cardinal Della Rovere. Montreal’s Francois Arnaud appears as Rodrigo’s ruthless son Cesare. Joanne Whalley plays

Vanozza, the pope’s longtime mistress and mother of his children. The Borgias debuts with a special two-hour episode. The co-production between Canada, Ireland and Hungary airs later this spring on CTV. The nine-part, hourlong series was created and written by The Crying Game writer/director Neil Jordan. “Certainly there was salacious behaviour in the Vatican under the Borgias,” Jordan said in a release. “But what’s most interesting to me is the way in which power wears a religious cloak — and then becomes terrifying in its appetites.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Micky isn’t the only scrapper implied by that singularly misleading title. Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale), Micky’s half-brother and full-on coach, friend and millstone, once had a ring career, too. He went the distance against Sugar Ray Leonard in a controversial 1978 fight, and he’s never let anyone forget it. Dicky was the Pride of Lowell, Mass., the tough mill town where another free spirit, beat scribe Jack Kerouac, also hailed from. Now it’s 1993, and Dicky

is struggling to rebound from alcohol and crack abuse. It’s Micky’s turn to be the Pride of Lowell, by winning welterweight championship honours, and the two bros. couldn’t be more different. Micky is taciturn, stolid, determined. Dicky is mouthy, restless and, to use his own words, “squirrelly as f—” But Dicky knows how to fight and how to motivate. Lowell is a hard-knocks town for women, too. Micky and Dicky have seven sisters that smoke and cuss and judge, but they’re fiercely loyal to family. They don’t like Micky’s

new girlfriend, barmaid Charlene (Amy Adams). Then there’s mom, Alice (Oscar-winning Melissa Leo), done up like a hooker at a wedding in her tight pant suit ensemble. She’s Micky’s business manager, but she’s as useful as a horsefly. Of this rough mix does director David O. Russell pack dynamite, a film more concerned with family brawls than ringside ones. Bale, who also won an Oscar for this film, runs away with one of the most memorable performances of 2010. PETER HOWELL

A wave of Bieber Fever swept through Toronto on Monday as dozens of youngsters poured into the Bata Shoe Museum to see the pop singer’s shoes enshrined. Justin Bieber fans ranging in age from about five to 15 shrieked when the museum curator unveiled a glass case containing a pair of purple sneakers. The shoes have been worn on stage by the 17year-old heartthrob from Stratford, Ont. The well-worn Supra Skytops join the museum’s collection of celebrity footwear, which includes shoes worn by John Lennon, Terry Fox and Marilyn Monroe. Prior to the unveiling, the kids watched a performance by Landon Holmes, a 12-year-old

Bieber tribute artist from Woodstock, Ont. Lara, 15, and Celeste, 14, wore Bieber T-shirts and purple 3-D glasses from the premiere of Bieber’s recent film Never Say Never. The diehard fans said it was exciting to get a good look at the pop star’s shoes. “To be that close is amazing,” Celeste said. “He wore them in concert.” The girls have seen Bieber perform three times and are hoping to meet the singer one day. Several boys were also in attendance, including 10-year-old aspiring pop star Christian. “I like Justin Bieber and I like his songs,” he said. “I think I’ll become a big pop star when I grow up.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sheen absent from twins’ birthday party RESTRAINING ORDER.

Charlie Sheen’s twin sons, Max and Bob, celebrated their second birthday over the weekend with a lavish party — but without their dad, according to Us Weekly. Sheen is currently locked in a nasty custody battle with the twins’ mom, Brooke Mueller, who has a restraining order out against the troubled former Two and Half Men star. “Brooke seemed to have a good time, too, and was relaxed and happy,” said the source. “She seemed focused on her kids and nothing else. There was a lot of security outside at all times to make sure no uninvited guests got in. There was no sign of Charlie at the party.”

Some insiders have been suggesting Mila Kunis played a major role in the recent split of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. But the Black Swan actress is blameless in this one, according to People magazine. “Mila had nothing to do with their breakup. In fact, no one came between them. They decided their relationship ran its course, and it was time to move on,” a source says, adding that Timberlake and Kunis are “not in a relationship. They star in a movie called Friends with Benefits, but they’re just friends. That’s it. They are not together.”

Did you know?

The best time to brush your teeth is about an hour after eating. After we eat, bacteria on the teeth make acid from the sugars in the food. The saliva has a natural ability to remineralize the teeth after this acid attack. Waiting an hour after eating until you brush your teeth gives your saliva a chance to do its job of rebuilding tooth enamel. CELIA MILNE

Study suggests lower stroke risk in women who drink at least a cup of java a day

Healthy teeth, healthy you Extend your life by 10 years by simply brushing your teeth If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling bloated, a lack of dental hygiene could be to blame CELIA MILNE

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get down in the mouth. Caring for your teeth and gums is as important to your overall health as exercising, not smoking and not overeating. If you are pregnant, it could even prevent pre-term birth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have good overall health without good oral health,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Anthony Iacopino, dean of the University of Manitoba faculty of dentistry and director of the International Centre for Oral-Systemic Health in Winnipeg. When you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brush and floss properly, the biofilm (a layer of protein) on the teeth becomes loaded with bacteria. The bacteria accumulates on the teeth and causes swelling and destruction of gum tissue. Once that

inflammation develops, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not limited to the mouth. It contributes to whole body inflammation because the oral bacteria and molecules involved in swelling enter your blood stream. This chronic inflammation in the body can make illnesses such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, heart disease, arthritis and colds worse, says Iacopino. It can also raise the risk in pregnant women that they will have premature labour or a low-birth-weight baby. He suggests brushing and flossing twice a day (morning and night). Even rinsing with mouthwash is better than nothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poor oral health has been linked to serious systemic diseases and poor quality of life as one gets older. For best health and enjoyment of life, pay attention to your oral health and make sure you do not have inflammation

Highrisk people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; people with heart disease, diabetes or pregnant women â&#x20AC;&#x201D; should visit the dental office more often. Need more reason to take care of your mouth? Iacopino says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brushing and flossing have been linked to a 10-year increase in life expectancy.â&#x20AC;?

PREGNANT? RINSE YOUR MOUTH A new study done in Pennsylvania has found that pregnant women who rinse with mouthwash have a lower risk of giving birth earlier than those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Other studies have found a link between gum disease and preterm birth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For pregnant women who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brush or floss their teeth as much as

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to, something as simple as using an antimicrobial mouthwash once a day can significantly reduce the chances of adverse pregnancy outcomes (premature labour or low birth weight),â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Anthony Iacopino, dean of the University of Manitoba faculty of dentistry.

ing in the mirror, and start looking on your plate. Feed your wrinkles Perricone claims that an anti-inflammatory diet is the key to wrinkle-free skin. He says that while not visible on the surface,

inflammation speeds up the rate at which collagen — the skin’s “glue” — is broken down. By eating the recommended foods, you’ll be protecting your collagen (and yourself ) from breaking down. THINKSTOCK

THINKSTOCK

1

Exercise: The skin of those who exercise regularly has proven to contain healthier collagen, necessary for skin strength and flexibility.

2 3

Short Naps: They give you extra energy, making you more alert and productive throughout the day. Smoking: Increases the production of an enzyme that breaks down the supply of collagen to the skin’s structure.

4

Diet: Sugar (all forms), processed foods, pasta, bread, pastry, and snacks such as chips and pretzels all cause a highly destructive pro-inflammatory response in our bodies.

5

Sun exposure: Exposing our skin to the sun over a long period of time reduces collagen levels in the skin. The sun’s UV-A rays generate free radicals that oxidize the proteins, lipids, and DNA in the skin. The result is a shortage of the molecule the body uses to make collagen.

SINGLE PARENTS: DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF Two Sisters

ANDREA & CLAIRE RELATIONSHIPS @METRONEWS.CA

How does a single parent date? And how are we supposed to scope out the other single parents at the park without looking like we’re trying to pick up happily married spouses, and do all that without letting your child fall off the jungle gym? And once you’re out with

someone — parent or not — how much do you talk about your child? All questions, no answers.

Dear AQNA, I’ll focus on the jungle gym question since I still play on them. First priority is safety. I’d suggest a har-

ness. Or maybe those leashes that make kids look like dangerous pets with rabies. If this fails, you should be a sprint away from karate chopping a potential kidnapper, or resuscitating your child in the event of marble indigestion. While keeping a watchful eye, approach your prey from the side. No one likes people creeping up on them from behind. Crack some lame joke about parenthood. If he/she is decent, he won’t laugh. You’ll chat about things like the quality of the sand in the sandbox, at which

point your target should mention something about his partner, and since you’ve kept it neutral, no one is embarrassed. Now you can make a graceful exit or network. After all, other parents can be a great source of play dates and even match you up with their hot, single and kidfriendly neighbour. Andrea

Dear AQNA, When we’re around other single parents, it’s because we’re with our own children, so the best you can do is hope that your

kids will either play together or attack each other so that both parents have to intervene, and POOF! Cupid will strike. Except that only happens in movies. Here’s what not to do (I know because I’ve done it). 1. Don’t limit yourself. There are non-parents out there who can care about your child almost as much as you do, simply because he/she is yours (although many single men suffer from what I call the “National Geographic effect” and react like animals in the wild, who would rather eat another male’s child

than feed it). But they exist — they’re like the truffles of the romantic world, a rare delicacy. 2. If you date a non-parent (Muggle?), let them know you have a child, but not in a defensive, “I eat bullets for breakfast” tone. Just remember that unless you want to talk about your date’s job/pet/family all night, you shouldn’t bore them with burp stories.

LITERALLY LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT At the time, I was looking for a photographer to do some headshots, and my friend suggested Julien. I loved his work and immediately set a date for the shoot. That day, I met him outside of a ’50s diner, and it literally felt like love at first sight, as cheesy as that sounds! My friend (a.k.a. his ex) joined us for the photo

shoot, and Julien and I kept flirting when she wasn’t looking. But later that night, my friend admitted she still had feelings for him. I felt terrible! But the more all three of us hung out together, the more she saw that he really liked me — and she realized she didn’t like him “like that” anymore. One

night, Julien and I chatted till 4 a.m., talking in a sort of code about how we really liked one other. But he finally asked me straight out if I would be his girlfriend. I said yes and we’ve been together ever since! WE WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU MET! GO TO 2FORCOUPLES.COM NOW TO SUBMIT YOUR LOVE STORY

f you’re a student, don’t fork out any more dough than you have to! The most powerful student tax credit is for tuition. All students receive a T2202A form stating the amount of tuition paid in a year. Schools will either mail it to you or make it available through a secure online website. Without this form, you can’t claim tuition and other valuable education credits like the Textbook Tax Credit. Scholarships or bursaries are tax free if your program qualifies. Tuition and education credits must first be applied to your tax return to reduce tax payable to zero before transferring anything in excess to a parent, grandparent or spouse.

If you have concerns that the U.S. is still a long way from any kind of sustained recovery, companies with a large percentage of revenues generated elsewhere will be less vulnerable to any continued flatness or further decline in our southern neighbour’s fortunes.

keep your passes and receipts so that you can back up your claim. If you move more than 40 kilometers for a summer job, you can claim moving expenses against your employment income. Deductible expenses include travel, transportation, storage and the cost of meals and temporary accommodation. Even if you have zero income, you should file a 2010 tax return, which allows you to collect the GST/HST credit. Once you’ve completed school, those dreaded student loans also have tax advantages. The interest on federal and provincial student loans is deductible. But loans or credit lines outside of the government student loan programs are not deductible You can hire an accountant or tax expert to help prepare your return. Or, take advantage of free or low-cost on-campus tax services. As part of course training, many accounting students are given the opportunity to prepare tax returns under the supervision of a professor for other students on campus.

Women are more likely than men to have feelings of guilt and distress if they’re contacted frequently by colleagues and clients outside the workplace, a study suggests. The finding comes from research by University of Toronto sociology professor Scott Schieman and colleagues, published in the March issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior. They analyzed data from the Work, Stress, and Health Survey, and interviewed 1,800 American adults in 2005 and second interviews with most of them again in 2007. The researchers wanted to look at work-related contact partly because of advances in technology, including cellphones, BlackBerrys and emails. “We took a random rep-

resentative sample of workers, or tried to get it as representative as possible, and we asked them about 30 to 40 minutes worth of questions about all kinds of things related to work and family, and then we also asked a series of questions about emotions and health,” Schieman said in an interview, noting that his subjects are American because he proposed the study and applied for U.S.

funding for it before arriving in Toronto in 2004. “We found that there was an association between receiving work-related contact and guilt for women. We didn’t find that association for men. And then we also found it for distress as well.” Distress was measured by questions relating to malaise, such as feeling tired and rundown, feeling like everything was an effort and having difficulty focusing on the task at hand. “Our study provides a snapshot view into what people might think is a form of flexibility, through these technologies,” Schieman said. “I think we need to step back and say, ‘What are the consequences of that for people’s emotional and physical well-being?’” THE CANADIAN PRESS

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.

Robots to

the rescue

Researchers using robots to help children with autism become more comfortable with human interaction

Ronnie Arloff smiles as he reacts to Kaspar the robot as he takes part in a research project with Dr. Ben Robbins, seen in back.

Eden Sawczenko used to recoil when other little girls held her hand and turned stiff when they hugged her. This year, the four-year-old autistic girl began playing with a robot that teaches about emotions and physical contact — and now she hugs everyone. “She’s a lot more affectionate with her friends now and will even initiate the embrace,” said Claire Sawczenko, Eden’s mother. The girl attends a preschool for autistic children in Stevenage, north of London, where researchers bring in a human-looking, child-sized robot once a week for a supervised ses-

sion. The children, whose autism ranges from mild to severe, play with the robot for up to 10 minutes alongside a scientist who controls the robot with a remote control. The robot, named Kaspar, is programmed to do things like smile, frown, laugh, blink and wave his arms. He has shaggy black hair, a baseball cap, a few wires protruding from his neck, and striped red socks. He was built by scientists at the University of Hertfordshire at a cost of about 1,300 pounds ($2,031). There are several versions of Kaspar, including one advanced enough to

play Nintendo Wii. The robot’s still in the experimental stage, and researchers hope he could be mass-produced one day for a few hundred dollars. “Children with autism don’t react well to people because they don’t understand facial expressions,” said Ben Robins, a senior research fellow in computer science at the University of Hertfordshire, who specializes in working with autistic children. “Robots are much safer for them because there’s less for them to interpret and they are very predictable.” There are similar projects in Canada, Japan and

the U.S., but the British one is the most advanced, according to other European robot researchers not connected with the project. Scientists at the University of Hertfordshire first began using a version of Kaspar in 2005. The newest model is covered in silicone patches that feel like skin to help children become more comfortable with touching people. So far, almost 300 kids in Britain with autism, a disorder that affects development of social interaction and communication, have played with a Kaspar robot as part of scientific research.

Playoff hopes take a blow Ritola scores twice, Roloson makes 30 saves as Lightning beat fading Leafs 6-2 Reimer replaced after allowing five goals on 29 shots DARREN CALABRESE/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Quoted

“This isn’t a thing about competition, it’s about growing the sport. It’s a good day for the fans, a great day for the fans.” UFC PRESIDENT DANA WHITE, ON THE UFC’S PURCHASE OF RIVAL PROMOTER STRIKEFORCE, WHICH WAS ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY. STRIKEFORCE, THE NO. 2 MMA PROMOTER IN NORTH AMERICA, IS HOME TO SUCH FIGHTERS AS FEDOR EMELIANENKO, NICK DIAZ AND DAN HENDERSON.

Vincent Lecavalier, centre, and Steven Stamkos battle for the puck with Leafs, from left, Keith Aulie, Colby Armstrong and Joey Crabb.

An unlikely source and an old nemesis put a serious dent in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ post-season push. Mattias Ritola scored twice and Dwayne Roloson made 30 saves yesterday as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated Toronto 6-2 to keep the Leafs six points back of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Nate Thompson, with a goal and an assist, Vincent Lecavalier, former Leaf Dominic Moore and Mike Lundin also scored for Tampa Bay (39-22-9). Teddy Purcell picked up three assists while Martin St. Louis and

Brett Clark added two each. Dion Phaneuf and Nikolai Kulemin replied for Toronto (30-30-10). Ritola, a fourth-round pick of Detroit in 2005, doubled his goal total on the season with two quick strikes three minutes apart in the second period to give Tampa Bay a 3-1 lead. Ritola banged a rebound

out of the air at 9:25 before snapping a quick shot past Leafs starter James Reimer at 12:34. A healthy scratch two games ago, Ritola now has four goals on the season. After the Leafs cut the deficit to 3-2 at 14:37 of the second period, Tampa Bay restored its two-goal advantage. Reimer got a piece of a Simon Gagne shot, but Lecavalier pushed the puck over the goal-line to deflate the Air Canada Centre crowd. The Leafs trailed 4-2 entering the third and had a few chances to get closer, but Tampa Bay put it out of

reach when St. Louis threw the puck in front and Moore banged it past Reimer. That ended the rough night for the rookie netminder, who was replaced by J.S. Giguere after allowing five goals on 29 shots. The 41-year-old Roloson is 3-0-0 against the Leafs this season and holds an impressive 6-1-0 record versus Toronto since the 200809 campaign. The Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers sit tied for seventh in the East, four points up on ninth-place Carolina and six up on the Leafs. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Crosby back on ice for light skate Penguins centre Sidney Crosby returned to the ice yesterday for the first time since missing 29 games with a concussion. But if you’re looking for the Pittsburgh captain’s return date, it’s still anyone’s guess. “I have no clue,” Crosby said. “I just want to get better. This is part of the way to do that. I’m just kind of taking that step and seeing how it goes.” Crosby, who last played Jan. 5 in an 8-1 win over Tampa Bay, practised in full gear for about 15 minutes at the Consol Energy Center. It was a light workout with a skating drill around some cones, and a few shots on net. “I’ve had some good days here the last few, and I was able to get on a bike and exercise a bit. I didn’t have any symptoms doing that,” he said. “I was given the opportunity to skate, the doctors said I could give it a try and see how I feel.” The Penguins, without Crosby and injured forward Evgeni Malkin (knee), have stayed afloat in the Eastern Conference playoff race. They sit just three behind first-place Philadelphia. Crosby also weighed in on the general managers meeting underway in Florida. The GMs, under pressure to address headshots in the league, announced a new protocol yesterday ensuring every player showing symptoms of a concussion must go to the dressing room and be examined by a doctor. “There’s obviously got to be some clarity,” Crosby said. “Everything’s got to be looked at. It’s a pretty fast game. There may be times when guys maybe don’t (aim) for the head but come into contact with the head. What do you do in that situation?” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NHL boss unveils plan to address issue that has roiled league Gary Bettman fired a preemptive strike on the opening day of meetings for NHL general managers, announcing a five-point plan to try to deal with the rise of concussions. It was an unprecedented move for the commissioner at a time when his league is under pressure to act on the hot-button issue. The GMs have gathered in Florida to examine concussions for three days before deciding if they want to propose a rule change, but Bettman wasn’t content to wait. “There are a series of steps that we have been working on from a league perspective to address the issue of player safety,” he said yesterday. THE CANADIAN PRESS

FINANCIAL SERVICES SKILLS IN HIGH DEMAND

In the plan Players displaying symptoms will be given a baseline test by a doctor in a quiet location before returning to the ice. Fines will be issued against teams and coaches with players who rack up a high number of suspensions. Safety engineers will ensure all NHL arenas conform to standards, including the elimination of seamless glass by next season. League executive Brendan Shanahan will work with the NHLPA to expedite equipment modifications. A special committee will look at the concussion issue.

Weekend’s answer

For today’s crossword answers and for expanded horoscopes, go to metronews.ca

Today’s horoscope Aries March 21-April 20 Take life as it comes today, and leave yourself plenty of time for social activities. Friends will pop by when you least expect them, so don’t tie yourself down to too many things.

Weekend’s answer

Fill in the grid, so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23 Venus, your ruler, makes an excellent aspect to Saturn in your sign today, and while it may not be true to say that anything is possible, most things undoubtedly will be. Be selective in your ambitions. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22 The most important thing today is that you resolve any differences of opinion you have with loved ones. You may disagree on minor issues but overall you are still on the same wavelength.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 Travel is on your

mind and even if you can’t get away right now, you’ll be making plans for summer. Make plans for loved ones, too.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20 You have started many new things recently, but you need to decide which of your projects is worth continuing. The more focused your energy, the more successful you will be.

DERIK

Aquarius Jan. 21-Feb. 18 Venus in your sign makes a perfect angle to Saturn, planet of stability, today. One particular relationship is about to become more meaningful to you. Stop denying you were made for each other.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20 Your imagination will get the better of you today, and that’s not a bad thing. You do some of your best work when you shut out the “real” world. SALLY BROMPTON
