End of days?

Christian group claims no one is safe York University ecologist says apocalypse is something of a day-to-day reality BRIGITTE NOร‹L

TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

Participants in a movement that is predicting the world will end Saturday gather earlier this month in New York City. Believers claim to have settled on this date by a deep and complex study of religious texts.

0''&3&/%4.":

You donโ€™t have to repent โ€” just recycle! While evangelical Christian group Family Radio prophesies apocalyptic natural disasters for Saturday, environmental experts say this prediction may not be as far-fetched as it seems. Ecologist Gail Fraser is an associate professor for the faculty of environmental studies at York University. She says that for people in her field, the apocalypse is somewhat of a day-to-day reality. โ€œYou look across the world and there is massive habitat loss, thereโ€™s massive habitat modifica-

tion, thereโ€™s species threatened with extinction,โ€ Fraser says. โ€œIn my mind, weโ€™re well on our way to screwing things up.โ€ Family Radioโ€™s biblical interpretations state that no one is safe from this weekendโ€™s predicted disasters. While Fraser does not anticipate their forecast to materialize, she says some natural catastrophes are actually within our control. She cites mudslides as one example of a preventable calamity. โ€œOne of the main reasons for mudslides is deforestation,โ€ Fraser says. โ€œWeโ€™ve removed the organisms which would leave the hillside intact.โ€ More coverage {pages 6-7}

Sun’s rays to amp up public schools

TARA WALTON/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

More than 300,000 solar panels will be installed on the roofs of hundreds of Toronto public schools at no cost to taxpayers, it was announced yesterday. AMP Solar Ltd. Partnerships, the company that will install the panels, will spend more than $120 million to replace old roofs and will also give the school board a share in the profits from selling the solar energy. “It’s a win-win situation

for everyone involved,” said Chris Spence, director of education for the Toronto District School Board during an announcement Thursday at Hillcrest Community School, near Davenport and Bathurst streets. Spence called it a groundbreaking partnership and the first initiative of its kind by a school board in North America. About 450 schools will have solar installations. The solar panels will gen-

erate up to 66 megawatts of green energy a year — enough to meet the needs of as many as 6,000 homes. The power generated will be sold to the distribution grid for consumers, including the school board. AMP Solar will be responsible for the construction, technology, power generation, financing, roofing, operations and maintenance of the panels. It will also pay the board rent for the space.

Two men acquitted in Jordan Manners’ death

No appeal: Crown attorney Boy found lying in C.W. Jefferys school stairwell with a .25-calibre bullet lodged in his body in May 2007 The two men accused of first-degree murder in the death of Jordan Manners were found not guilty Thursday, nearly four years after the 15-year-old died in Toronto’s first and only school shooting. It was the second trial for the two men, who were 17 when Manners was killed and can only be identified as C.D. and J.W. The first trial ended in a mistrial last year after four days of deliberations could not produce a unanimous verdict. This time, the jury came

back with acquittals in less than two full days. When the verdict was read, C.D and J.W. embraced their lawyers, while people in the courtroom cried out in surprise. “I think it’s a day for us to at least see that justice did the job that we believe should have been done today,” said J.W.’s lawyer, Donald McLeod.

No Ward 9 byelection, for now ANDREW WALLACE/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The City of Toronto has changed its mind — again — and will appeal a court ruling that invalidated Coun. Maria Augimeri’s election last fall in Ward 9 York Centre. City clerk Ulli Watkiss’ surprise decision is the latest twist in an electoral roller-coaster. It puts on indefinite hold the July 25 byelection Watkiss ordered only last Friday when she decided not to appeal, saying a re-vote was needed to

clear the “cloud” over the electoral process. Thursday’s flip-flop was hailed by Augimeri as “a step in the right direction because no one has ever challenged the validity of the ballots,” only forms accompanying ballots cast by those not on the voter list. Gus Cusimano, who lost to her by 89 votes and launched the successful court challenge, said Augimeri forced the city’s hand by asking the courts

Ontario’s highest court has been asked to determine whether the province’s Special Investigations Unit can pursue criminal investigations against former officers. The case involves an attempt by Peel Region Po-

lice Chief Mike Metcalf to obtain a court injunction restraining the SIU from investigating a woman’s complaint that she was sexually assaulted by a Peel officer nearly 30 years ago. Metcalf lost that battle last week and has instructed his lawyers to appeal. The complainant wrote in an email to the SIU she did not wish any force to investigate the alleged assault, which she says occurred in 1981 or 1982. The officer retired in 2009.

We’re on the eve of construction It’s summer road-repair season again Here’s a guide to making your way around the GTA Oh, and watch out for that tree It’s construction season on provincial highways, and that includes heavily travelled segments that will affect commuters in the Toronto region this summer. The province is spending $2.5 billion on 224 projects in 2011-12, Transportation Minister Kathleen Wynne said Wednesday. Road construction is expected to create about 17,000 new jobs. Here’s a breakdown of the major construction sites: • Hwy. 427 on the south-

bound collector lanes from Mimico Creek to the CP Rail structure; a new transit-only lane from eastbound Eglinton Avenue to the Hwy. 427 southbound collector lanes, and the widening of the Dundas northeast and west ramp to two lanes. The work, expected to begin this month, is projected to be finished by the end of summer 2013. • Replacement of bridge expansion joints and steel coating on the Burlington Skyway has already begun and is expected to contin-

Mayor’s bike plan to debut next month Toronto cyclists and motorists will get a first look next month at Mayor Rob Ford’s cycling plan, including a long-anticipated network of physically separated cycling lanes, says Denzil Minnan-Wong, who heads the Toronto Cycling Committee. The network would connect separated lanes on Sherbourne, Wellesley, Harbord, Beverly, John and Richmond streets, said the city councillor for Don Valley East. The kind of physical separation — whether it be concrete or other barriers — from traffic isn’t yet known. But the proposed plan

won’t come at the expense of the controversial bike lanes that were painted on Jarvis Street less than a year ago. Even though he doesn’t support the lanes on Jarvis, removing them isn’t a priority, Ford told reporters at city hall Thursday. “Eventually, would I like to see them go? Absolutely. But is it a priority right now? I haven’t got any documentation or anything like that. So no, it’s not something that’s going to happen immediately. It might happen, but whoever started this rumour, it’s just a rumour for now,” he said. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE HENRY STANCU/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mayor Rob Ford’s election platform included a promise to spend $5 million to build on-road bike lakes that wouldn’t interfere with cars.

ue until November 2012. All lanes will remain open during the day, with partial lane closures at night until October. • Bridge construction and repairs will also begin this month on Hwy. 401 and Hwy. 403 in ChathamKent, Elgin County and Brantford. • As part of the ongoing rehabilitation of Hwy. 401, which began last year, the westbound collector lanes between Keele Street and Kipling Avenue are being widened to provide an additional lane for west-

bound traffic by fall 2012. Repaving and bridge construction means that stretch will be down to one lane for some periods during the summer, the first of which is the weekend of June 25-26. • The northbound Weston Road on-ramp to westbound Hwy. 401 will also be closed until the end of November. • The province is also working with the non-profit group Trees Ontario to plant 200,000 trees along provincial highways this year.

Closing in on the con man BERNARD WEIL/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

His name is Richard Earl Rupert. He’s well groomed, polite and charming. Police say he’s also one of the most successful predators in North America, having defrauded seniors of hundreds of thousands of dollars going back perhaps 40 years. He’s also one of the most elusive con men police say they have ever encountered. They know what he looks like from 150 surveillance images across the country. He’s 55, medium height and weight, with a ruddy complexion, receding hairline and short dirtyblond and grey hair, with a large nose. Police have linked him to 44 thefts across Canada but they believe there are hundreds more, with an average take of $881. In one lucrative month, police determine his take was $8,000 — tax free. “This is not a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud,” says Det. John Dunlop, “but once you add it all up, he’s making a good living.” Police say Rupert slips into seniors’ homes, posing as a long-lost nephew who needs a few hundred dollars for car repairs, or some-

The hunt for con man Richard Earl Rupert is an obsession for Det. John Dunlop and Det.-Const. Steve Walker, who presented the case at a financial crimes conference in Toronto.

thing else. At a seniors building in 2009, he allegedly told an 81-year-old woman he was with building management and promised a rent discount for a $2,500 advance payment on rent. Now armed with a Canada-wide warrant, two detectives say they can now arrest him anywhere in Canada. Det. Const. Steven Walker and Dunlop are obsessed with the chase. On Thursday, they presented their case to 450 police officers at a conference of the financial crimes unit, formerly the fraud squad.

“We need your help. This guy is prolific,” Dunlop said to his peers. Dunlop took up the chase in November 2009 as a detective with 32 Division. Even though he has moved on to Organized Crime Enforcement, he won’t let this case go. Walker first came upon Rupert 10 years ago and, although he has moved to another police unit, he’s been given the authority to drop whatever case he is on to arrest Rupert once he is sighted again. What galls the detectives most is that Rupert appears

to be fearless. One surveillance image has him in a seniors building walking nonchalantly past a wanted poster of himself before proceeding to a senior’s room. Some of his victims are blind or have dementia, police say. “This is somebody’s parents and grandparents,” Walker says with a look of disgust. Walker thinks the net is tightening on Rupert. “He’s either got to be extremely lucky or extremely good. He can’t be both.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Geologist isn’t quaking over Judgment Day PAULA BRONSTEIN/GETTY IMAGES

Professor says we need to know more about what makes the Earth move Huge population growth means any natural disaster has greater impact BRIGITTE NOËL

TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

Could an earthquake end it all? It may seem as though natural disasters are on the rise, but Dr. Nick Eyles says this has nothing to do with the end of the world, as predicted by a Christian Evangelist group. A professor of geology at the University of Toronto, Eyles says the illusion of increased disasters is due to rapid population augmentation in urban areas. “Cities are getting bigger so they are more susceptible to natural hazards.” According to Eyles,

earthquakes — like the one in Japan in March — claimed more lives than war, disease and terror last year. “It doesn’t mean that the world is ending or that the tempo of tectonic activity is increasing,” he says. “You have these huge cities here where even a moderate earthquake now can do a lot of damage, whereas in the past it wasn’t the case,” Eyles says. Eyles believes more needs to be done to map out tectonic structures. “We don’t really know what’s below our feet,” he says. “We know that what’s below our feet is moving all the time, but we don’t know how it’s

structured, we don’t know where the faults are.” The geologist says he

You say two-four, Family Radio says no more FILE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ready to rock? As many Canadians finalize their long weekend plans, the group behind the May 21 Judgment Day prediction is preparing for the end. Tom Evans, spokesperson for evangelical Christian group Family Radio, says the week has been bittersweet. “The character of May 21 has nothing to do with preparing and stocking up food and that sort of thing.”

Family Radio, founded by Harold Camping, has spent millions advertising what it predicts will be the end of the world. “We’ve told the world this and now it’s in each individuals hands,” Evans said. The Earth-shattering quake the group prophesies will be “a greater, stronger earthquake than anything mankind has experienced,” Evans said. But asked about rumours the group spent its

entire budget on the campaign, Evans said this isn’t the case. “Family Radio would never endanger itself by using funds reserved for the maintenance and the running of Family Radio on this sort of thing.” And if May 21 comes and goes without the predicted globe-shattering quake? “Then God is a liar,” Evans said.

The Toronto District School Board has lifted a ban on cellphones and other electronic devices in schools. New rules approved just after midnight Wednesday, after hours of debate, give teachers the final say on whether to allow cellphones and laptops in classrooms.

Either way, they will be allowed in hallways. The new rules take effect in September. Many board members argued that electronic devices, including cellphones, can effectively be used for learning. A statement on the board’s website said the de-

Rookie MPs bask in camaraderie as they tour Parliament Buildings They were warned about the perils of life in Parliament — the stress on their marriages, the strain on their health, the long hours, the tricky business of hiring the right staff. But rookie MPs attending their freshman orientation session Thursday also got a glimpse of the camaraderie life on the benches breeds. “In that room, no one had the logo Conservative, or Green or Liberal or whatnot, so it’s just interesting to be with a great bunch of people for the 41st Parliament,” said Dan Albas, a B.C.

Michael Ignatieff, who resigned after leading the party to a historic defeat in the May 2 election. “I shall abide by any rules about the interim leadership, agreed to by the caucus and by the (the party’s) board (of directors),” he said in his letter. “I have made it a watchword of my time in public life to practise the politics of unity and principled compromise. I shall continue to do so.”

The party’s directors have the authority to appoint an interim leader, based on the recommendation of the parliamentary caucus — which appears to overwhelmingly favour Rae. The board said last week the interim leader must be bilingual and must promise not to seek the permanent leadership or engage in discussions about a possible merger with the NDP.

Bob Rae, 62, is a former NDP premier of Ontario.

One condition In his letter to caucus members, Bob Rae laid down a condition of his own. He said he is only interested in being interim leader if the vote for permanent leader is put off for 18 to 24 months. A broad consensus has emerged in favour of a leadership vote in the fall of 2012.

Detained reporter back in B.C. Journalist Dorothy Parvaz is back with her family in B.C. after being released from detention in Iran. Parvaz hugged relatives on arrival at Vancouver airport. “Happy to be back and I’m anxious to be with

my family,” she said as reporters crowded around her. The B.C. journalist was on assignment for AlJazeera’s English news network when she was detained by Syrian authori-

ties April 29. The 39-year-old was deported to Iran, where she also has citizenship, and held in detention there. Nobody heard from her until Tuesday. THE CANADIAN PRESS

‘Elaborate’ house arrest

Canada’s banker up for IMF job?

Ex-IMF leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn granted $1M bail Will stay in apartment in Manhattan, watched by armed guards International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn will return to a New York City jail pending his release on bail. Strauss-Kahn is charged with trying to rape a hotel maid and is likely to spend one more night at Rikers Island jail. A judge set bail at $1 million Thursday, and approved an elaborate arrangement under which the 62-year-old diplomat and banker would be confined to a private apartment in Manhattan and monitored by armed guards. Strauss-Kahn will also have to take out a $5-mil-

Prime Minister Stephen Harper thinks Mark Carney is a wonderful central banker — others think so, too. The Bank of Canada governor, who has been named by Time magazine as one of the world’s most influential men, is being taken seriously in international circles as a possible replacement for disgraced International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn. With StraussKahn in a New York jail on a sex assault charge, calls for a permanent replacement have been growing. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Media circus Scores of reporters lined up outside the courtroom door before the hearing, with still more journalists and cameras poised outside the building. State court system spokesman David Bookstaver said the media throng was one of the biggest since Mark David Chapman was arrested in the 1980 killing of John Lennon.

London 10-1 bookmaker William Hill has placed Mark Carney as a 10-to1 pick for the prestigious job. Turkish politician and economist Kemal Dervis is the favourite at 5-to-2.

Not-so-Secret Service on Twitter

Report blames company for U.S. coal mine blast

Mississippi. Flood

An independent investigation concludes the West Virginia coal mine explosion that killed 29 men last year was the result of safety failings by owner Massey Energy Co. and rejects the company’s argument that a sudden gas buildup caused the blast. The report released Thursday said Massey violated basic safety practices, including not ventilating the tunnels enough.

U.S. spy agency apologizes for employee’s tweet Post quickly taken down, but re-tweets keep it alive

The U.S. Secret Service should consider reverting to code. The information gathering organization decided to open a Twitter account this month, and while it isn’t regaling us with tales of terror raids and false moustaches, the organization is letting us know it isn’t fans of Fox News — at least one employee isn’t. “(H)ad to monitor Fox for a story. Can’t. Deal. With. The. Blathering,” a tweet from @SecretService, the service’s official account read Thursday. The post was quickly taken down, but as the Secret Service probably knows, that which is posted on the World Wide Web

It also said the vanishing tweet had been posted by an employee with access to the service’s account who mistakenly believed they were on their personal account. But why are the Secret Service’s Twitter novices watching Fox? “Our public affairs employees monitor all the news channels throughout the day for stories that affect the Secret Service,” Special Agent in Charge Edwin M.

Attempts to stake a claim for al-Qaida in protests led mainly by youth fed up with government abuses In a recording made shortly before his death, Osama bin Laden praised the mass protests that have toppled and shaken longtime rulers across the Arab world while trying to cast a role for al-Qaida. Bin Laden’s message, released on militant websites Thursday, is an attempt by the terror leader to remain relevant after sweeping changes in which al-Qaida played almost no role. “The winds of change will spread through the entire Islamic world, God willing,” bin Laden said. He proclaimed it a “religious obligation” to form a IT’S JUST NOT CRICKET

Abbottabad bats zero The city where Osama bin Laden was killed has been removed as the venue for a one-day international match between Pakistan’s second-string cricket team and Afghanistan. The Pakistan Cricket Board said Thursday that Abbottabad has been replaced by Islamabad, which will host the match on Wednesday.

Fallen idols In the recording, bin Laden accuses rulers of building themselves into idols and manipulating the media to stay in power. “So, what are you waiting for?” he implores listeners. “Save yourselves and your children, because the opportunity is here.”

council that would provide guidance for all Muslims — apparently a way for alQaida to play a role in the protests’ future. While not mentioning al-Qaida by name, he advised people struggling The PCB didn’t give a reason for the switch. Afghanistan will be the first foreign cricket team to tour Pakistan since gunmen killed six police officials and a van driver during an attack on a Sri Lankan team bus at Lahore in March 2009. Since then, Pakistan has hosted “home” series against international teams in United Arab Emirates, and also played “home” test matches against Australia in England last year. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

against their governments to remember “those who advised early on the necessity of uprooting these oppressive regimes” — a clear reference to the militant group. Though both bin Laden and the West have generally supported protest movements in the Middle East, their goals differ. The West hopes the protests will bring democratic reforms. Bin Laden and his followers hoped they would lead to governments based on strict interpretation of Islamic law. Bin Laden was killed by U.S. Navy SEALs May 2. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Button it, CIA chief says Leon Panetta has warned CIA employees that anyone caught leaking information about the operation that killed Osama bin Laden could face prosecution. In a memo, the CIA director told staff that the disclosure of classified information can endanger lives. The warning follows media reports that the CIA operated a safe house, as well as new stealth drone technology, to spy on bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A vehicle burns Thursday following a bomb attack in the northern oil-rich city of Kirkuk, killing at least 27 people and wounding 89, in the worst violence to hit Iraq in nearly two months.

Bloody blasts kill 27 people in northern Iraq Kirkuk kidnappers also killed a policeman and Christian construction worker, dismembering the workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body A triple bombing killed 27 people Thursday and wounded scores outside a police station in Kirkuk, Iraq, heightening tensions in the northern Iraqi city already on edge after a string of kidnappings and attacks against security officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first blast, a bomb stuck to a car in a parking lot in central Kirkuk, lured policemen out of their fortified headquarters to investigate around ENVIRONMENT

China gets tough on polluters Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental protection ministry is cracking down on pollution caused by lead and other heavy metals following a spate of poisoning cases and reports that much of the country is contaminated with toxic materials.

Located 290 kilometres north of Baghdad, Kirkuk has been an ethnic flashpoint for years among Kurds, Arabs and Turkomen, who each claim the oil-rich city as their own. 9 a.m.,â&#x20AC;? said police Capt. Abdul Salam Zangana. The new rules were announced late Wednesday, after dozens of children living near a battery plant in southern Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guangdong province were reported sickened by lead poisoning. Businesses and local officials will face criminal penalties for violations of the rules, which limit new projects and require tighter enforcement of environmental protection regulations.

Three minutes later, a second blast rocked the lot when a car packed with explosives blew up in the crowd of police. The third bomb, planted on a road leading to a hospital, set cars and trucks ablaze when it exploded about 500 metres away less than an hour later. Zangana said it targeted a police patrol near a mosque. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

‘Great Firewall’ designer pelted Egg and shoes thrown at Chinese online censor Chinese police were seeking the man who allegedly threw an egg and shoes yesterday at the computer scientist famous for designing China’s Great Firewall of web controls. The attack — if true — is a particularly bold one for China and underscores how strongly people feel about the country’s strict Internet censorship. A Twitter user posting under the name “hanunyi” claimed that one of the shoes struck computer expert Fang Binxing while he was visiting Wuhan University in Hubei province.

Fang reviled Fang Binxing has felt the ire of the online community before. When he launched his microblog in December, it was taken down within hours after anonymous posters peppered it with hundreds of caustic or sarcastic comments.

Fang, president of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, is popularly known as the “father of the Great Firewall” and is reviled by many Chinese web users.

An officer at the Luojiashan Public Security Bureau confirmed police were sent to the university to investigate a shoethrowing incident that targeted Fang. The officer, who refused to give his name, said Fang was on his way to the airport. Hanunyi posted a live account of the alleged shoe toss on his Twitter page, including photos of the door to the lecture hall where it happened, a hand clutching an egg in preparation and bare feet after he fled.

Hudak sees tax as disharmonious Provincial Tory leader would slash 8% from HST PAWEL DWULIT/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak made a $1.2-billion election promise Thursday to trim part of the HST from electricity and heating bills, as the Tories home in on pocketbook issues. “The most unfair part of the HST tax hike is how it hits life’s essentials, the things you can’t do without, like the cost of hydro, natural gas and home heating oil,” said Hudak, who has made energy costs a centrepiece of his campaign for the Oct. 6 provincial election. Besides slashing the eight per cent provincial portion from the 13 per cent harmonized sales tax from residential hydro and home heating bills,

Tim Hudak

Hudak said, a Tory government would remove the debt-retirement charge from home hydro bills. That would mean total tax

relief of $275 per year for the average family. “This debt-retirement charge has become nothing more than a permanent tax grab under the McGuinty government,” said Hudak, who noted he plans to pay for the promise by killing the Liberals’ Samsung wind and solar energy deal, among other things. The announcement drew the ire of Finance Minister Dwight Duncan, who said the “reckless” measure would cost the province much-needed tax revenue. He charged that the Tories will slash health care and social programs to make up the difference. THE CANADIAN PRESS

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

How does BIO-FEN PLUSTM work? Specific compounds within the herbal extracts inhibit the 5-alpha-reductase (and therefore reduce DHT) to prevent or slow down the rate of hair loss. This process is the principle by which the prescription drugs such as Propecia (finasteride) work. However, BIO-FEN PLUSTM also contains additional compounds which remove excess cholesterol and testosterone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the building blocks of DHT. BIO-FEN PLUSTM also contains vitamins to increase blood flow to the small capillaries that feed the hair roots, to deliver the active herbal compounds and remove waste. Therefore, BIO-FEN PLUSTM provides a natural, safer alternative to expensive drugs, and/or expensive & painful hair transplants. As with the prescription alternatives, results vary from person to person, and no one product will work for everyone.

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

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

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

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

Afghan militants kill 35 workers Another 20 people at remote road construction site are wounded Eight insurgents also die in assault Insurgents firing heavy machine-guns, rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles killed 35 workers and guards in an attack on a NATO-funded road construction site in a remote area of eastern Afghanistan, authorities said Thursday. More than 100 fighters carried out the assault in Wazei Zadran in a mountainous region of Paktia province near neighbouring Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas, said Galaxy Sky construction company owner Noorullah Bidar. He described the assailants as Taliban fighters, though there was no immediate claim of respon-

sibility for the attack late Wednesday. The region is thought to be controlled largely by the Haqqani network, a fiercely independent branch of the Afghan Taliban and a major enemy of U.S. and NATO forces. The al-Qaidaaffiliated network, led by ailing Jalaluddin Haqqani and his son Sirajuddin, is based in neighbouring Pakistan’s tribal belt. U.S. officials say Pakistan has not done enough to go

after insurgent safe havens in the restive area, especially in North Waziristan where the Haqqanis are thought to be based. The issue is a sore point between the two countries and the area has been the target of repeated U.S. drone strikes. About 85 people were at the construction site at the time of the attack, including some 65 guards recruited from surrounding villages, Bidar said. He said the firefight lasted about two hours and the insurgents shot down at the camp from a nearby hill. The fighting also destroyed a number of construction vehicles. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Female grads expect lower salaries: Study

LinkedIn. Joins

‘Millennial generation’ women also deemed more realistic than men A new study finds Canadian women who are about to enter the workforce expect to earn less than men. Researchers at three Canadian universities surveyed more than 23,000 university students and found women expect to earn smaller paycheques and wait longer for promotions than men. University of Guelph researcher Sean Lyons says female students estimate their starting salaries will be 14 per cent less than what the men students forecast. After five years on the job, that gap widens to 18 per cent.

Glass ceiling Researchers also found women are more likely to want to balance their personal life with their careers while men prefer climbing the corporate ladder. Reid Hoffman, left, the founder of LinkedIn, and Jeff Weiner, the company’s CEO, celebrate the listing of LinkedIn Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange.

A 2008 Canadian Labour Force Survey found university-educated women earned only 68 per cent of the salaries of equally qualified men.

SPEAKING OF THE APOCALYPSE ... THE METRO LIST 1 ANDREW WALLACE METRO

End days. According to Harold Camping, the head of the Christian radio network Family Stations Inc., the world will end Saturday. Apparently, an earthquake will shake the Earth and the true believers will be swept up to heaven, while the rest of us are left behind to bear witness to the destruction of all human life. From Camping: “We know without any shadow of a doubt it is going to happen.”

Uh, OK? Freedom of expression. Tyler, the Creator, the frontman for Odd Future and one of hip hop’s weirdest up-and-comers, recently received the ire of one-half of Tegan and Sara for his misogynistic and homophobic lyrical content. The conversation took to the Twitterverse and somehow the issue morphed in“Apparently, an to a discourse on free speech. This, of course, earthquake will isn’t a free speech issue — shake the Earth it’s an idiot-with-a-platform and the true issue. Librarians. The probelievers will be fession is under swept up to threat in Ontario heaven, while and elsewhere. In a world the rest of us are where e-books are booming and cellphones provide inleft behind to stant access to more inforbear witness mation than anybody could to the ever need, an old-time curator of ink-and-paper destruction ...” products seems both obsolete and irrelevant. But librarians are still a wonderful resource. A library reconceived for the information economy could be more valuable than ever, and a librarian calibrated to meet today’s information challenges could be its greatest asset. The Biebs. This week Forbes announced that Justin Bieber, the boy wonder from Stratford, Ont., is officially the third most influential celebrity in the world. He has made teen girls swoon, sold out a world tour and starred in a top-grossing film, not to mention selling his footwear and hair on eBay for $5,500 and $40,558, respectively. Apparently, that’s the stuff influence is made of. Speaking of the Apocalypse … James Frey. The famous author (and noted liar) is on tour in Canada to promote his new book, The Final Testament Of The Holy Bible. On Wednesday, he was in Toronto to discuss the work with Indigo “chief book lover” Heather Reisman, which will surely be a boon for sales. In today’s world, liars remain unpunished — instead, they seem to be roundly rewarded. The Gos. It looks like Canadian kid Ryan Gosling is going to try his hand at directing. Word is The Notebook heartthrob will star in his own directorial debut, a remake of the 1980s musical The Idolmaker. Bieber may be Canada’s most influential celebrity icon, but the Gos is the Canadian Renaissance man. He acts, he produces, he sings and now he is going to direct. Also, like Ferris Bueller, he seems to be a righteous dude.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Letters WHITE ROCK, B.C. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s latest Senate appointments must be called into question. Senators are to be a check on the prime minister, his cabinet and his House of Commons majority. They have the responsibility of providing “sober second thought” from their appointed positions. Appointing defeated candidates to the Senate cannot be considered otherwise than directly conflicting with this responsibility. Have Harper’s purely partisan personal appointees committed to voting as he pleases? Is that not vote buying? Is Harper not again in contempt of Parliament in making such appointments? Neither abolishing nor electing senators serves the purpose that the chamber was meant to serve when Canada came into being. A process that will enable the Senate to play its designated role that Harper has completely destroyed is to have senators appointed by the Governor General upon the recommendation of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada.

WEIRD NEWS

She may be a little slow on the draw, though The highest court in Oregon unanimously ruled Thursday that retired bus driver Cynthia Willis can have her medical marijuana and a concealed handgun, too. The ruling issued in Salem, Ore., upheld previous decisions by the Oregon Court of Appeals and circuit court in finding that a federal law barring criminals and drug addicts from buying firearms does not excuse sheriffs

from issuing concealed weapons permits to people who hold medical marijuana cards and otherwise qualify. “We hold that the Federal Gun Control Act does not pre-empt the state’s concealed handgun licensing statute and, therefore, the sheriffs must issue (or renew) the requested licences,” Chief Justice Paul De Muniz wrote. Willis welcomed the ruling. “I feel like a big girl now,” she said. “I feel like a real human being now, not just a source of revenue to the county.” Oregon became one of the first states in the U.S. to authorize people to use marijuana to treat medical conditions when voters approved an initiative in 1998.

Johnny Depp stars in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth movie in the Pirates franchise.

Scene in brief

It’s time to jump ship Richard Crouse and Mark Breslin debate Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Mermaids are great, but not much else to write home about Richard Crouse: Mark, my main question after watching the new Pirates movie is, If this was the first one of the series would we have had a two, three and four? I don’t think so. It’s a big splashy epic, but lacks the fun and Johnny’s joie de vivre of the original. What say you, matey?

brilliant characterization in the series, but really, the tricks are starting to show their age. And I didn’t like swashbuckling even when Douglas Fairbanks did it in 1932. Still, I thought this edition of Pirates was the best since the original, whatever that means.

Mark Breslin: Richard, I wasn’t even a fan of the original. And no franchise should exceed a trilogy unless the words “godfather” or “cheerleaders” are in the title. An appreciation of this movie is contingent upon how you feel about Johnny Depp and how much swordplay you can handle. I adore Depp’s

RC: I don’t think this one has the spark of the others. It’s not as funny, Depp seems like he’s gone back to the Captain Jack treasure chest one too many times and the action scenes, despite the 3-D, don’t fly off the screen the way they have in the past. I liked the mermaids and think their attack se-

quence is the most exciting thing in the movie, but I may be wrong simply because the movie is so dark I may have missed something. MB: Oh, those mermaids! Who knew they spoke in a Scandinavian accent? Yes, they are the most exciting thing in the movie, although I did enjoy Ian MacShane’s villainy. But despite the fountain of youth plot device, these Pirates are getting old. And you’re right about how dark the film is: I was straining to make out which pirate was which. Quick clue: Depp is the Pirate Who’s Had A Bit Of Work Done.

RC: Ha! Perhaps playing the same character four times in eight years is too much for Depp, or perhaps the limitations of Captain Jack are becoming apparent but he’s not as entertaining as before. Not that director Rob Marshall helps him. The action sequences are as well choreographed as you might expect from the man who made Chicago and Nine, but they are also as exciting as you would expect from a man who specializes in making musicals. MB: I see what you’re getting at. For the next instalment, make it a musical complete with a chorus line of mermaids!

Although the antics are amped up in The Hangover: Part II, star Bradley Cooper admits shooting the anticipated comedy was at least easier than the first. “There’s a certain amount of ease in knowing the character — having all this history,” said Cooper recently in Toronto. “There was a lot less preparation because the preparation was already (in doing) a movie. That’s a hell of a lot of rehearsal time to have another movie under your belt.” With the 2009 surprise hit earning a stunning $467 million US worldwide, there will be a lot of eyes

pearance of the bride’s 16year-old brother and a mysterious drug-dealing monkey. “The stakes are so high in this movie. It gets darker and because of that the three of us have to go to places making it believable but you have to deal with these crazy circumstances,” Cooper said. He explained that the movie’s secret is in the camaraderie with co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms. “It’s the reason I would do seven of these movies … it was just really wonderful to see what would come out of that — things that weren’t in the script,” he said.

The mystery of Bobby Fischer PHIL BROWN

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

It would be hard to find a more mysterious figure in the 20th century than Bobby Fischer. From teenage chess prodigy to international celebrity to his final years as a distraught recluse, Fisher led a fascinating life in and out of the public eye. And despite his considerable fame, it was never easy to get a sense of who Bobby Fischer was. Frequently cold and distant at his peak and fearful of the media in his later years, Bobby Fisher’s greatest legacy might not be his chess career but the mystery that he created, intentional or not. Fortunately award-winning documentary filmmaker Liz Garbus attempted to unravel this mystery with her latest project, Bobby Fischer Against The World. Through hours of interviews and an amazing collection of archival footage, Garbus was able to compile the most complete portrait of Fisher to date. “I think he occupies a very unique position in our culture,” Garbus told Metro. “I don’t think there’s been any other North American chess personality to occupy that kind of space in our consciousness and I would

say that has to do with the cold war. “There were two arch enemies with nuclear weapons pointed at each other while these two gentlemen were sitting down playing war over the chessboard. So the context was huge.” Since Fischer spent most of his life as a recluse, appearing publicly only to make controversial rants rooted in mental illness, he proved to be a difficult figure for the filmmaker to depict. Thankfully, Garbus admirably didn’t shy away from the darker aspects of his life. “I think that kind of relentless pressure on a young mind can really be dangerous and you see that play out,” explained Garbus. “I felt great empathy for what Bobby went through and I think that’s an important message of his story.”

ACNE

Eczema Psoriasis Rosacea Rashes

By Dr. C. Hammoud Ph.D.

#60 Guaranteed better than all others they used say dozens of delighted users with full names and towns on the Bell website. Works by cleansing blood inside rather than attacking skin from the outside and leaving the actual cause untreated. Here are a few examples:

WEEKEND, MAY 20-23, 2011

I had terrible Acne for 3 years and tried Benzoyl Peroxide, Proactiv, Aloe Vera and others. After 4 days taking the Bell natural product #60 it started to clear up my skin. My skin changed from terrible to beautiful. Mylene Theriault, 19, Sorel-Tracy, QC In 2 days my son’s face completely cleared up of acne. My son is 15 and suffered for 3 years. We used many products like laser, Clean Clear, Neem that did not work or burned his skin. Veronica Marden, Seminole, TX Unbelievable acne free beautiful skin Last couple of years I had acne and tried every product like Murad, Proactiv and antibiotics. Results with #60 were unbelievable. Thanks for giving me beautiful skin and my self-esteem. Nelisa Royer, 28, Doral, FL Within 6 days eczema cleared up completely. I believe #60 addresses the cause internally instead of the symptoms. Latifa Boutshik, 43, North York, ON I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Last 5 years I have stunned every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60, I’ve never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. I’m speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Jessica Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC All statements made on the Bell website are sent by delighted users. All are real people. Most have listed phone numbers and can be called for advice. No money is paid to them. Their reward is the relief they are getting. All say #60 works within days not months, not years. It’s more effective than what they used before. It is less expensive (some acne suppliers ship monthly and charge monthly, which may amount to large sums yearly). No side effects were reported on #60.

are a modern epidemic

It really works! 100% natural. Try it risk free. Relief Guaranteed or Money Refunded! Last 4 years in spring I had allergy attacks with runny nose, sore throat and headaches. Just 2 capsules Bell Allergy Relief #24 brought relief. Belinda Wilfong, 41, Hillsboro, MO  For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX God bless you I went from doctor to doctor for years with allergy sinus problems. The medications made me still sicker. After starting Bell Allergy Relief one capsule at night I felt like born again the next morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY

WRIST PAIN

#30

#24

Bell Carpal Tunnel Syndrome #30 gave quick relief within an hour. I was hand milking cows and began having weakness, numbness and pain shooting up my arms. Pain increased at night. My doctor suggested surgery as the only option. Not true! The pain and numbness are all gone after taking #30. I can do now whatever activity I want. Marjorie Wilson, 55, Dubuc, SK  I’m a car mechanic. Holding tools was getting increasingly difficult because of wrist and tendon pain. After 2 weeks on #30 I’m fully productive again. Cancelled scheduled surgery. William Marrero, 56, Miami, FL  I was wearing wrist braces. A woman saw it and told me she had relief right away with #30. I got some same day. It worked for me as well. Thanks a million. Diane Frank, 49, North Battleford, SK  I’m a nurse and work with my hands all day. I experienced increasing pain in my hands and fingers. Surgery was the only option I was told. My husband found #30 for me. I have no more pain or inflammation since. You have a life long customer. Nina Wallace, 52, Dacula, GA

What does Lady Gaga’s handwriting say about her?

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

The estimable Lady Gaga served as Metro’s guest editor on Tuesday and we got her to answer some of our questions in her own handwriting. Which, of course, raises the question: What does Lady Gaga’s penmanship say about her? Metro consulted Dennis Duez, a Pittsburgh-based handwriting analyst who has scrutinized the writings of Britney Spears (she’s very obstinate) and former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (he needs romance, but does not trust it). After taking a look at Gaga handwriting samples, Duez deduced: • Lady Gaga is a strongly independent, and a myway-or-the-highway person, as evidenced by her straight up and sometimes slanted slightly to the left lettering. She believes that her

Lady Gaga served as Metro’s guest editor on Tuesday.

way is the right way, said Duez. Critics beware! • Gaga does not like to be misunderstood, as evidenced by copious amounts of printed text

and is a strong communicator. See open tops on lower case “O,” “A,” and “D” characters. • Her handwriting evidences a strong performance talent, indicated by the broad “T” bar crossings. • Honesty is critical for Gaga; when someone lies to her they are gone, gone, gone, said Duez. See the constant use of uppercase, cobra strike “S” through out her writing. • Apparently, there is an old relationship that has not quite faded from Gaga’s memory, theorizes Duez. It may still return, unbidden, in dreams, he said. See the beginning arc in the ending “y” in “humanity.” •And, our personal favourite: There is evidence of a strong impact to Gaga’s left leg/knee/shin area. This shows up on the dent on the “g” at the end of “unassuming” and in several other “y” characters in her handwriting sample.

THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR SOUND CHECK

ALAN CROSS SCENE @METRONEWS.CA

Today is one of my favourite days of the entire year: the Friday leading into the first summer long weekend. After a cold winter and a cool, and for many, disastrously wet spring, Canadians are possessed by hopeful optimism about what the next four months will bring. This means it’s also time to load up on some new music. Ben Harper/Give Till It’s Gone (Out now): Most of Ben’s best records have been released in either the spring or summer, making them great soundtracks for heading camping or the beach. His tenth studio album-which again features his band, The Relentless 7-fits that bill. And yes, that’s Jackson Browne making a guest appearance. Moby/Destroyed (Out now): Electronica’s favourite bald vegan re-

Eddie Vedder.

turns with an album written mostly in hotel rooms in the middle of the night. A chronic insomniac, Moby captures both the peace and loneliness one feels at 3 in the morning in a strange city. Listening to this album in the daytime doesn’t feel quite right, but in the middle of the night, it makes all the sense in the world. Lady Gaga/Born This Way (Monday): Okay, so the artwork is among the ugliest the world has seen (Gaga morphed into an over-the-top chopper motorcycle), but she’s sold 16 million albums and 20 million downloads, so no one is about to second guess her. Gaga-mania will continue unabated,

especially now that she has GagaVille, her own universe or crystals and unicorns on Facebook. Thurston Moore/Demolished Thoughts (Tuesday): The tall dude from Sonic Youth had his fourth proper solo album produced by Beck. It’s dark, brooding yet beautiful. Hey, he used a harpist on this record. Death Cab for Cutie (May 31): Leader Ben Gibbard has been telling anyone who will listen that the band’s seventh album will be “a much less guitar-centric album that we've ever made before” and “more Eno” (as in producer Brian Eno. Expect to hear a lot of piano and keyboard textures. Eddie Vedder/Ukulele Songs (May 31): When you’re one of the most famous singers in the world, you can do whatever you want, including recording a solo album where you play the ukulele. Rumour has it that Eddie originally planned this project as gift to friends and family, but it turned out so well that it’s getting a proper release. Haunting yet very, very pretty.

bums but his 2009 album, The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo, proved he could gracefully transition into a medium that requires players to be well-versed in its tradition.

It also helps when Earl Scruggs guests. Eddie Murphy

After tucking funny songs between comedy tracks on his albums, Mur-

Sandler mastered the funny-guy-with-the-guitar thing on Saturday Night Live, and some of the songs on his first two comedy albums were absurd enough to make your stomach hurt. But 1997’s What’s Your Name? is all songs, and though the musicianship is impressive, the lyrics fly somewhere between funny and sincere, and it falls flat.

In the early days of film and television, variety was king. Elvis had starring roles, the Rat Pack all sang in their movies and while Jackie Gleason had one of the highest-rated shows on TV as a bus driver with a comically short fuse, he was also releasing albums of romantic mood music. But as the modern entertainment industry evolved, the public gradually became less accepting of stars who established themselves in one medium, then tried to succeed in another. But now that reality television is the norm, the world might be more accepting of a comic actor who turns to music, like Donald Glover.

phy decided to take music seriously. His Rick James-produced anthem, Party All the Time, went to No. 2 on the charts in 1985. Most of his follow-up singing work was met with less enthusiasm. Whatzupwitu, a 1993 duet with Michael Jackson, made listeners wonder the same about Murphy.

“The new generation is very affected by the lack of equality,” she says. “I noticed I had 12- and 13-yearold kids at my shows saying, ‘I felt like I didn’t belong and couldn’t be myself with my family and now there’s Born This Way and I have a very easy answer to a very difficult question in my life.’”

Rock ’n’ roll and its subgenres have always had an outcast component. Because many of the people making this type of music were misfits growing up, they have occasionally found inspiration in singing about their outsider status. But where The Who sang, “hope I die before I get old,” in their 1965 song, My Generation, singers these days are using a more encouraging tone. Lady Gaga puts her personality on parade by saying that she was Born This Way, and Ke$ha lets her freak flag fly by singing We R Who We R. Pink is currently telling her listeners, “don’t you ever, ever feel like you’re less than f—in’ perfect” while Katy Perry tells hers that they “don’t have to feel like a wasted space” in Firework.

While Maria Shriver continues to deal with the fallout of husband Arnold Schwarzenegger’s admission of fathering a child with a long-time staffer, it’s

important for her to remember that all is not lost: She can always write a memoir! In fact, she’ll join an esteemed “wronged political wife” collection of authors. Here, other political wives share what they felt like when they were in the same situation, via excerpts from their books.

The husband’s indiscretion: In case you’ve for-

Winston bares it all with comedic flair, from seeing just what her exboyfriend thought of their five years together (in a nationally distributed novel, no less) to all the not-so-glorious relationships that came before and after.

• 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce • 50 ml (1/4 cup) prepared barbecue sauce • 2 cloves garlic • 500 g (1 lb) 85 per cent lean ground beef • 250 ml (1 cup) shredded cheddar cheese • 50 ml (1/4 cup) finely chopped black olives • 4 large potato buns, toasted • 1 large tomato, thickly sliced

Preparation:

1 To increase the heat in this recipe, add a jalapeno to the processor at the same time as the chipotles.

No condiments are needed for this high-flavour barbecue-style cheeseburger; they are built right in. For ease — and let’s face it, awesome taste — I took your basic beef burger and mixed in puréed chipotles in adobo sauce, a healthy

splash of barbecue sauce and some garlic. But why stop there? I also stuffed the burger with a mix of cheddar cheese and chopped black olives. To round it out, I mixed a simple bell pepper slaw to form a creamy-crispy

In bowl, whisk mayo, mustard powder, honey and vinegar. Add all 3 peppers, toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In food processor, combine chipotle peppers, barbecue sauce and garlic. Puree until smooth. Transfer to bowl. Add ground beef, 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt and 1 ml (1/4 tsp) black pepper, mix.

Divide ground beef mixture into quarters. One at a time, form each quarter into a cup in the palm of your hand. Add 50 ml (1/4 cup) of the cheese and a sprinkling of the black olives to the centre of each cup, then push beef over it to completely cover cheese. Carefully form beef into a patty.

Coat grill grates with oil. Grill burgers for 8 minutes for medium-well or until desired doneness.

Top bottom half of each bun with some pepper slaw, then a burger, then a slice of tomato.

Match made in grill heaven PETER ROCKWELL LIQUIDASSETS@EASTLINK.CA TWITTER: @THEREALWINEGUY

I’m a bit of a barbecue weenie. At my house, boy meets grill until mid-fall. Then I wheel my gasfired girl into the garage until Victoria Day. She’s ready to make her 2011 debut this long weekend, and when it comes to picking a wine to match grilled meats, I look for juice that can hold its own against the intensity of the meat, the influence of the marinade and, since I’m a bit of a hamburger aficionado, any condiments I decide to lather on when meat hits bun. Think young, jammy and red. It’s not time to uncork that Bordeaux you’ve had since midway through the last century. Best bets are Californian zinfandel and merlot, Aussie shiraz, Chilean cabernet sauvignon, and for a taste of the Old World, a Barbera d’Asti from Italy’s Piedmont region. In Argentina, barbecue is a way of life and a red like Trapiche’s 2010 Varietals Malbec ($9.00 $11.99) — with dark, blueberry flavour, balanced tannins and spice trail — is a grill match made in Mendoza.

1 Your text messages predict the future They call it “text mining”. Researchers sample millions of tweets, Facebook updates and blog entries to take the emotional temperature of the status quo. Digital crowd sourcing “predicts” the future better than professional pundits. It’s already established a connection between our anxiety levels and stock market movement. The downside: big business is messing with our personal data.

The test costs about 400 euros (about $550).

Boston regains defensive prowess JUSTIN K. ALLER/GETTY IMAGES

Seguin scores again after sitting out first two rounds of playoffs Tim Thomas made 31 saves for his first playoff shutout this season and rookie Tyler Seguin scored his fourth goal in the last three games as the Boston Bruins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in Game 3 of the NHL Eastern Conference finals Thursday night. Thomas, the favourite to win the Vezina Trophy as the top regular-season goalie, gave up nine goals in the first two games of the series that the Bruins lead 2-1. Seguin made it 2-0 from in-close at 8:12 of the third as the puck trickled between the legs of Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson and into the net. The 19-year-old Seguin was inserted into the lineup to replace an injured Patrice Bergeron in Game 1 and has seven points overall. David Krejci also scored for the Bruins. Bergeron was back in the lineup after missing two games because of a concussion sustained when he was hit by Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux in the final game of the second round. Krejci was alone in the low slot and opened the scoring on a backhander just 1:09 into the first.

LIGHTNING

Boston is 7-0 during the post-season when scoring the first goal of the game. Krejci was briefly shaken up late in the first when he was hit in the neutral zone by Tampa Bay defenceman Marc-Andre Bergeron, who received a minor penalty for elbowing. Both teams were looking to play tighter defence after combining for 18 goals in the first two games. Tampa Bay centre Steven Stamkos said before the game that the Lightning wanted to avoid “run-and-gun hockey.” Boston centre Brad Marchand added that both teams hoped to “buckle down” on defence. Game 4 is Saturday in Tampa. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Boston’s Tyler Seguin celebrates a third-period goal on Dwayne Roloson in Tampa, Fla., Thursday night.

The NHL and True North Sports and Entertainment are disputing a report that a deal to bring the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg is done. Citing sources, the Globe and Mail reported Thursday night that the announcement confirming the sale will be made Tuesday in Winnipeg. “It’s not true,” True North spokesman Scott Brown said when asked about the report that a deal was done.

Germany’s Prinz of players

Double. Up

CHRISTOF KOEPSEL/BONGARTS/GETTY IMAGES

FIELD OF PLAY SCOTT RUSSELL TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

At the training camp for Germany’s national women’s football team in Bitburg, not far from the Luxembourg border, there’s a photographer trying to get a shot of the queen of European soccer. Birgit Prinz isn’t playing along. The 33-year-old striker, the most prolific player in FIFA Women’s World Cup history, lets her teammates pose and waits until the circus is over before emerging from the clubhouse. “For me it’s never been about personal goals,”

Jays DH Eric Thames and Rays second baseman Sean Rodriguez get tangled up Thursday in a double play. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Jays’ bats come through

J.P. Arencibia hit a two-run homer Thursday to snap a 1-1 tie in the seventh as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. Juan Rivera also homered for the Jays (22-21). Toronto starter Ricky Romero allowed three hits over seven innings for the win.

Prinz remarks. “It’s always been about being part of this team.” Her English is remarkable given that she rarely encounters an interview in anything other than her mother tongue. Such is the modest nature of acclaim granted to arguably the greatest women’s soccer player in the annals of the game. Prinz, you see, is approaching her fifth World Cup. She has been the champion twice and holds the record for goals scored in World Cup matches with 14. She has played at four Olympics and won the bronze medal three times. For good measure, add three consecutive years as FIFA World Player of the Year from 2003-05 and 208 international matches in 16 years as the German stalwart.

Birgit Prinz

Prinz has done it all. Now she gets to compete in a World Cup at home and take her place as a much appreciated legend in a football-mad nation. “I never had female role models when I was first playing this sport,” Prinz admits. “I looked up to the guys who played in the Bundesliga. They were my role models. Girls need role models, too. If I am one now than that makes me happy.” A practising physiotherapist and student of

psychology who has been vocal in promoting the humanitarian aims of FIFA, Prinz has achieved all her goals and then some. Just ask former teammate Stefi Jones, the president and CEO of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011 organizing committee. “Birgit is my hero,” says Jones. “She’s not as fast as she once was and doesn’t score as much. She just makes everyone around her better.” That’s what heroes do, and make no mistake, Prinz is football royalty. She is the undisputed queen of football in this country and probably throughout the world. When she plays against Canada to open the World Cup at Olympic Stadium in Berlin before 70,000 fans, Prinz will finally receive the undivided attention of her loyal subjects.
