People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive returns to Vancouver to check out homeless shelter Covenant House staff swoons at Ryan Reynolds’ ‘genuine compassion’

Is Twitter bullying a problem?

COVENANT HOUSE VANCOUVER/CONTRIBUTED

Ryan Reynolds may be saving the universe as the Green Lantern onscreen, but he hasn’t forgotten about his hometown of Vancouver. People Magazine’s sexiest man alive made a secret visit to Covenant House Monday to tour their shelter, learn more about the city’s homelessness crisis and meet some of the people who access the organization’s services. “He grew up in Vancouver, so he’s familiar with the homeless situation here,” said Covenant House’s Michelle Clausius. “He was very interested to see our shelter and the reasons why young people end up here.” The actor could have turned the tour into a publicity stunt but Clausius said he came in on his own accord, with a “genuine compassion” for homeless youth. “He called last week and asked if he could come in,” she said. “He used to walk by all the time and wanted to learn more about us. To have someone that famous come in and take an interest is fantastic.”

MLA won’t lose seat after spending scandal PHYLICIA TORREVILLAS/FOR METRO

Former B.C. solicitor general Kash Heed will not lose his seat in the provincial legislature over a spending scandal that has enveloped his election campaign. A lawyer for the province’s chief electoral officer agreed with Heed’s own lawyer at a B.C. Supreme Court hearing in Kelowna yesterday that the rookie MLA should not lose

his Vancouver seat for exceeding by $5,000 the $70,000 campaign-spending limit set out in the Elections Act. It remains to be seen whether Heed will have to pay the penalty set out in the act for such a violation — a $10,000 fine. The judge reserved his decision in the case. Heed’s lawyer, David Gruber, said his client acted

in good faith and should not be penalized. “It was the evidence of Mr. Heed and the financial agent that they didn’t know about those expenses,” Gruber said outside the court after the hearing. Heed has twice been forced to step down as solicitor general because of the allegations surrounding campaign spending on two

Heed

controversial pamphlets distributed in his riding during the 2009 provincial election campaign and payments to campaign workers. In April, a prosecutor announced 14 charges against two of Heed’s campaign aides, but said there was no evidence the former West Vancouver police chief knew of the financial irregularities.

Police dog dies in collision TERRIS SCHNEIDER/FOR METRO

RCMP says the dog’s death was result of ‘unfortunate set of circumstances’ TERRIS SCHNEIDER

VANCOUVER@METRONEWS.CA

Cpl. Sherrdean Turley discusses the loss of police dog Bo, inset, killed in a car crash yesterday.

A police service dog was killed in a crash early yesterday morning in Richmond. “The only thing I can hope for is that (the death) was painless and happened rather quickly,” said Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley, following the death of Bo, a twoyear-old German shepherd. A police dog handler was responding to a theft near the Britannia Shipyards in Steveston at 1:30 a.m. yesterday when a collision between a police cruiser and another vehicle occurred at Westminster Highway and No. 7 Road. The police cruiser then struck a hydro pole.

Memorial Turley had no information on a memorial service for Bo, but said his name would most likely be placed on a memorial wall at the police station.

“It was an unfortunate set of circumstances,” Turley said. “The car happened to hit the pole right where Bo was seated.” Damage to the police vehicle was extensive, while the civilian in the vehicle was relatively unscathed. Paramedics treated the occupants of the vehicles who were uninjured. For more news, go to metronews.ca/ vancouver

Spandy Andy wants to know if he’s got talent Local performer gets ready to audition in all-new Canada’s Got Talent this fall Winner of the show takes home $100,000 PHYLICIA TORREVILLAS

VANCOUVER@METRONEWS.CA

You might see the tight and bright stylings of Spandy Andy in the allnew Canada’s Got Talent. The Vancouver resident plans to impress the judges with his talent, as well as his colourful spandex. “It’s a great opportunity for exposure,” he said. “(My fans) definitely want me on there. I prom-

ised them I’d try my best so I’m hoping

to do it for myself and for my fans.” The Canadian version’s debut follows in the footsteps of ratings hit America’s Got Talent, where the winner gets $1 million and a headliner show on the Las Vegas Strip. Canada’s Got Talent — which has no age restrictions and welcomes all kinds of acts — will be making its audition rounds in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto from mid-September to mid-October. Ed Robinson, executive producer

Rogers Broadcasting Ltd., said the show will get to highlight undiscovered Canadian talent and embrace other kinds of performers besides singers and dancers. “We have a great and unique cultural mix in the country,” Robinson said. “I hope we’ll be surprised by some of the acts we’ll see that will reflect the country but may not necessarily have a platform on national television in the past.” It will be a modern-day version of the variety show, he added, where an eclectic

from of

mix acts

will try to win over Canada. “There will (also) be some heartfelt stories in our various journeys across the country,” he said. “There are people who use entertainment and their ability to perform as expression of their emotion.” Performers will have to impress a panel of judges in front of a live studio audience to move on to the next round. The show

premieres on Citytv next year in the spring. SHANE OOSTERHOFF/FOR METRO

Vancouver street performer Spandy Andy plans to show off his dancing skills for Canada’s Got Talent.

ENGLISH COUPLE

British newlyweds found safe An English couple reported missing in British Columbia has been located safe and sound. Newlyweds Caroline and Ben Davies were reported missing

on Sunday after going 18 days without contacting family. A Lillooet RCMP member recognized their vehicle and pulled them over yesterday, confirming their identities and their safety. The couple had apparently been continuing their vacation and did not know that they had been reported missing. DAVID PROCTOR

Capilano watershed salmon get help The Capilano River’s salmon and trout population are increasing as efforts to safeguard them from hazards created by the Cleveland Dam continue. Metro Vancouver water committee chair Tim Stevenson explained that a “trap and truck” program prevents fish from dying in the fall from the reservoir at the top of the dam to the river at the bottom by cap-

turing them on one side and releasing them on the other. As a result, the protected Capilano watershed’s fish populations are becoming more self-sustaining. “The next generation will get what we received — and probably better, because of the work we’re doing around the salmon,” predicted Stevenson.

ICBC looks to increase rates

Move over, Vancouver

B.C. drivers could get hit with increased vehicle insurance rates next year. ICBC spokesman Mark Jan Vrem says the public insurer will file a rate application with the BC Utilities Commission by the end of the year to get approval for higher rates. Jan Vrem says basic rates are under pressure due to rising injury costs at a time when more people are on the road. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Toronto has surpassed Vancouver to become the Canadian city with the highest cost of living, according to a survey by consulting firm Mercer. Toronto now ranks as the 59th most expensive city in the world, while Vancouver ranks six places lower. Mercer said Toronto moved up 17 places higher than last year because of “relatively high” rental housing costs in the city. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Mob mentality yielding mean tweets on negative stereotypes MARIANA IONOVA/FOR METRO

#fatpeoplenightmares was trending topic across Canada and the U.S. for nearly 31 hours last week Dave Stibrany

MARIANA IONOVA

27, WEB DEVELOPER, TORONTO

There’s such a fine line between free speech and what you can say. It’s hard to monitor it, but I definitely think that something should be done with this problem.

Of course. But who’s actually going to monitor it? Everyone’s going to use the whole free-speech amendment.

When Twitter goes from fun, games and Bieber love to mean trending topics, it becomes a form of bullying, an expert says. “When you look at taunting and teasing within Twitter ... that type of bullying can drive a person to some serious depths of despair,” said Tim Richardson, social media expert and e-commerce professor at the University of Toronto. Trending topics like #whatmakesablackgirlmad illustrate how Twitter can become a platform for nega-

tive stereotyping and cyberbullying, said Richardson. Last week, Twitter showed its mean streak again when users began posting hundreds of tweets suggesting overweight people fear exercise, lettuce and the middle seat on flights. “People were saying these things that are so hurtful that they would never have the guts to say in person,” said Sam Tremblay, 22, who tweeted to criticize the #fatpeoplenightmares hash tag. Richardson said many Twitter users do not think twice before tweeting because they can hide behind the anonymity of the Inter-

net. “The thing with Twitter is that people are distanced from the pain that they’re

causing other people, and so they will do these things more easily,” Richardson said.

Fewer Canadians are regularly watching TV today but those who do haven’t curtailed their viewing. Statistics Canada reports that the proportion of Canadians who said they watched television dropped from 77 per cent to 73 per cent between 1998 and 2010. Those who did watch TV averaged about two hours and 52 minutes of viewing time a day, which StatsCan says hasn't really changed since 1998. The number of Canadians who said they used a computer in their free time at home spiked since 1998, going from just five per cent to 24 per cent. Those computer users averaged about an hour and 23 minutes of usage a day. Video game use is also up, with three per cent of Canadians playing in 1998 and six per cent in 2010. Gamers back then were spending an hour and 48 minutes playing each day, while the average was two hours and 20 minutes in 2010. THE CANADIAN PRESS

NASA ’nauts take final spacewalk Robots to eventually assume duty of refuelling satellites that orbit as high as 38,886 kilometres

Astronauts making the last spacewalk of NASAs spaceshuttle era yesterday retrieved a broken pump from the International Space Station and installed a fill-er-up experiment for a robot. In a departure from previous shuttle visits, the spacewalking job fell to space-station astronauts Michael Fossum and Ronald Garan Jr.. They completed the two major chores inside of 31⁄2 hours. The ammonia coolant pump stopped working last July and, for more than two weeks, left the space station with only half its cooling capability. Spacestation residents had to perform three emergency spacewalks last summer to replace the pump and

NASA TV/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

restore full cooling to all the on-board equipment. NASA wants the pump brought back to Earth so engineers can figure out why it failed to help them keep the on-board station pumps running. But perhaps more than anything else on this final journey by a shuttle, the robotic demo illustrates the possibilities ahead for NASA: satellite-refuelling stations in space run by robots. The space station’s twoarmed robot Dextre won’t tackle the $22.6-million playset until long after Atlantis departs and the shuttle program ends. The station is intended to operate until at least 2020.

In an image made from video, astronauts Ronald Garan Jr., top, and Michael Fossum work outside the International Space Station during the last spacewalk of NASA’s space shuttle era yesterday. They will retrieve a broken ammonia pump outside the International Space Station and pack it aboard the docked shuttle Atlantis. The two will also set up a robotic refuelling experiment.

CIA infiltrated Abbottabad: Report

Thrill. Bull run

Pakistani officials arrest doctor who helped run fake medical program designed to obtain bin Laden DNA The CIA ran a phoney vaccination program in the Pakistani town where Osama bin Laden’s family was believed to be living in an effort to obtain DNA evidence indicating whether the al-Qaida leader was there, the New York Times reported. An American official said the Pakistani doctor who ran the program in Abbottabad gained temporary access to the bin Laden compound but never saw bin Laden himself and failed to obtain DNA samples from bin Laden family members, the Times reported on Monday. A team of Navy SEALs killed bin Laden during a raid in May. U.S. officials

have said they were not certain bin Laden was in the compound in Abbottabad when President Barack Obama gave the go-ahead for the operation. Dr. Shakil Afridi, who ran the vaccination program, has been arrested and held in Pakistani custody because of his sus-

pected collaboration with the U.S., the Times reported. The CIA declined to comment on the Times report when contacted by The Associated Press. The vaccination program was first reported by the Guardian newspaper of London. The bin Laden raid was kept secret from Pakistani officials, which has strained U.S.-Pakistan relations. Bin Laden’s ability to live for years in Abbottabad, where Pakistan’s main military academy is located, has led to speculation in the U.S. that some elements of the Pakistani government knew of his whereabouts.

A CHANCE TO EMPOWER CHILDREN NEIL MORTON

My youngest daughter, Chloe, has been bugging me for years to coach her house-league soccer team. I remember how cool it was when my dad coached me at soccer as a kid, so I finally stepped up this spring and volunteered, having no real idea of what the heck I was getting myself into — or the learning curve involved. One of my biggest fears, other than the time involved, was this: You take an ultra-competitive guy who played all-star soccer growing up and put him in charge of a bunch of nine-year-old girls at different skill levels and you just don’t know what you’re going to get. My wife has been like, “Well, you’re not here to teach them how to win; you’re here to let them have fun, exercise, develop some skills.” But I’m like, “I know it’s house league, but, well, I just hate losing. At anything. Period. How can I just turn off my competitive nature? Let’s bend it like Beckham!” Somehow, I have tried to repress that competitive side. I do my best to be fair “The long and with all the girls. I divvy up the short is this: playing time and allow to try different posiTo the thousands them tions and develop at their of dads and own pace.

Pull the kids off the field!” and the delicate balance of coaching your daughter and not playing favouritism. The ultimate goal about coaching at this level, I’m learning, is to empower these girls. To encourage and instil confidence in them at this vital life stage while also just letting them have fun. If we happen to win the game, too, that’s gravy. (That said, if we’re up 2-1 with minutes to go, I might put my best defenders back there, but shhhhh.) My daughter loves that daddy is the coach. And daddy pretty much loves doing it, though there are moments after a long work day where he would rather just kick back than gather all the soccer balls and game sheets and water bottles and drive to a soccer field to coach on a sweltering summer evening. The long and the short is this: To the thousands of dads and moms across Canada who volunteer their time each week coaching teams — I’m starting to get it now. You guys are awesome. See you at indoor soccer.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning Schools and hospitals were designated by the UN Security Council yesterday as safe havens for children threatened by war. Led by visiting German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, the council voted unanimously yesterday to have the UN chief “name and shame” national security forces and other armed groups that target schools and hospitals in conflicts, often killing, maiming or sexually violating children. The resolution, spearheaded by Germany, also called on all countries to take action to help stop the growing practice. “Because children are very often the first victims of violence and conflict, we must do what we can to protect them,” Westerwelle said. Jo Becker, advocacy director for children’s rights at Human Rights Watch, said a UN blacklist of groups responsible for school and hospital attacks could have “a real impact.” “What this does is puts them on notice,” Becker said. “It stigmatizes them.”

Honey spill creates quite the buzz Cleanup crews in Island Park, Idaho, found themselves in a sticky situation after clearing honey and an estimated 14 million bees that got loose after a delivery truck overturned on a highway. Fremont County Sheriff deputies say several workers were stung during the first few hours of the cleanup Sunday.

And some observers told The PostRegister about seeing a strange black cloud and roaring noise above the spill area before realizing it was a massive swarm of bees. Authorities say a truck was hauling the bees to North Dakota from California when the driver veered off the shoulder, tipping more than 400 hive boxes and honey. Crews worked all day Monday before removing all the honey from the roadway, though deputies say a significant amount of bees were still buzzing. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

From the age of nine, British actress Emma Watson has lived and breathed Harry Potter — having starred in all eight of the films as Potter’s close friend, the bookish Muggle-born Hermione Granger. While Watson gave a tearful speech at the final film’s premiere in London last week, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two gets released, the actress is also eagerly awaiting her postPotter life — even if she and Hermione have basically already become the same person.

from shooting that stick out in your mind?

This film was obviously incredibly challenging for me. It really pushed me as an actress but at the same time, I was able to use a lot of my own genuine emotion that I felt about loss and it all coming to an end. So yeah, not much acting required, really. It was all there for me. What’s next for you?

It’s obviously scary — change is always scary, but I feel like I’m entering a new chapter, like I get a fresh start, and there’s something really exciting about that. I have just made a film called The Perks of Being a Wallflower which was just an incredible experience.

Bargain beds in the Big Apple You don’t have to stay in a flea-infested hostel if you want a cheap room in New York Pod hotels may be cheap and small, but they’re also smart, stylish and modern YOTEL

ADAM FULRATH

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

Staying in Manhattan is expensive. But, there are budget options that are cool enough to be chic and under $200 US a night. The newest addition is Yotel (yotel.com). When you arrive on Tenth Avenue, you’re greeted by a check-in kiosk and robotic arm that stores your luggage in a vault. There are no human helpers. From there you go to Mission Control where you do find staff, before heading up to a 110 sq. ft. cabin on any of the floors. Reminiscent of a 1980’s sci-fi movie and inspired by capsule hotels in Japan, the Yotel is not very spacious. But what the cabin lacks in space, it makes up for in style and usability. The bed transforms into a couch, the floor-to-ceiling windows block out the street noise and the WiFi is free. With the posh surroundings, including a stunning terrace lounge, you’ll forget that

you’re paying one of the lowest rates in the city. There are several other bargain spots within walking distance of the city's highlights. The Pod hotel (thepodhotel.com) has a pop-art vibe but more basic accommodations than Yotel. A rooftop deck and Ikea-styling come at a less than eye-watering price of around $130 US a night. For a more bohemian sensibility, The Gershwin Hotel (gershwinhotel.com) has the coolest entrance of any hotel in the city thanks to its Gaudi-inspired architecture. Rooms range from dormitory bunks starting at $49 US a night to suites. The Chelsea neighbourhood in Manhattan has several brownstones that have been converted into hotels that are worth considering. The most stylish is the Colonial House Inn (colonialhouseinn.com). Finally, there’s the Jane Hotel with its shabby-chic rooms that are designed to resemble cabins on a train (thejanenyc.com).

An intern’s insight STUDENT VOICE

What I learned Key take-aways from Emily’s experience:

EMILY MOORHOUSE TALENTEGG.CA

During my three year Public Relations Advanced Diploma program at Humber College, we were required to complete a 15-week internship in order to graduate. The process of finding an internship while in school was made easier as we had an online portal where employers could post opportunities that we could apply for. I managed to get an internship at a start-up company and received an honorarium of $100 a month. However, as the company was small, they didn’t have the funding for me to stay on as a full-time employee. While I was still interning, my supervisor was

Build a network of contacts by attending events and meeting new people. Bring along personal business cards to show others that you’re prepared and serious about the job hunt. Internships are a great way to develop new skills and test different work environments. With one or two internships under your belt, you’ll be more ready for the work world when you start searching for entry-level positions.

Where Emily is now

Since I just graduated in June, I’m currently doing a full-time, paid internship. I felt this was the best way to go as it would allow me to make a bit of money, while also gaining more experience in my field. I also plan to further my education sometime in the near future.

lations agencies as I could, briefly explaining my experience and how I could fit in with their company. During this process, I learned how important it is to customize your cover letter and objective to the specific place you are applying. It’s also crucial to double and triple check for correct names and spelling. In the end I saw a posting for a social media internship for an online global publication. I sent an email to the social media manager, which included a brief introduction of myself, my cover letter and my resumé. I then spoke with her on the phone, and was offered an interview at the Toronto office. Thankfully, I’m a people person and I don’t get shy when it comes to talking about career related topics. After leaving the interview feeling confident, I was later offered the internship. I think it’s important to do at least one or two internships before searching for entry-level careers. Internships give you a chance to develop your skills and get a better understanding of the work environments that you enjoy (or don’t enjoy!). Another plus of internships is, depending on the impression you leave and

the size of the company, you may be offered a job after your placement. I think the greatest piece of advice I could give to students looking to land their own internships, would be to network and volunteer as much as you can while in school. It’s so important to build a network of contacts and connections. If you’re willing to take time out of your busy schedule to do volunteer work, the people you are volunteering for may be inclined to provide a valuable reference for you down the road. A great way to network is to attend events and really put yourself out there. Take along some personal business cards that include your Twitter handle or your LinkedIn URL (if you’re active on those sites). If you’ve worked an awesome summer job and it ended on good terms, keep in touch with your past employer. You never know what opportunities may arise in the future, particularly if you were a reliable and hard working employee. My main recommendation to employers would be to take on interns and to give them a decent amount of work and responsibility. We understand that

Keep those pages turning Encouraging youngsters to read books during the summer will keep them sharp Summertime is so beautiful — filled with outdoor sports, full pink roses, warm afternoons and cool evenings. Just thinking about the summer months makes many school-aged children happy. You may remember having at least a few lazy days of summer during which you actually had the time to grab a book, relax, and read outside for a while. The Johns Hopkins University Center for Summer Learning says that “research demonstrates that all students experience significant learning losses in procedural and factual knowledge during the summer months”.

However, reading four or five books can actually enhance reading ability in an elementary school child, and instead of finishing the summer with a learning deficit, your child can finish the summer with gains, and go into the new school year with better reading and writing skills. How can you help your child this summer and prevent a learning loss? First, think about your own likes and dislikes. If someone told you to read Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky over the summer, unless you are an aficionado of Russian novels, you may just put it off. Your child is no different.

“Research demonstrates that all students experience significant learning losses... during the summer months” THE JOHN HOPKINS UNIVERSITY CENTRE FOR SUMMER LEARNING

If you like to read lighter books in the summer, your child may just have the same feeling. That’s perfectly OK. Children should read what they like to read over the summer, because

it is more likely that they will read more after having discovered the joy of reading. Allow your child to experience the wonder of reading a fantasy or science fiction story, or the thrill of feeling as if he or she is at a revolutionary war battle — or on a pirate ship. Some children may like non fiction, even during the summer, and may want to read about the universe, science, or even about travels or foods in foreign lands. Like you, they just might turn into an adult with fond memories of reading outside during the summer. With young preschoolers, make time during the

summer for reading aloud. It’s important to begin reading aloud to your child as soon as possible, because this helps to develop a sense for the rhythm and pattern of language. Kumon Math and Reading Centres offer these tips for reading with preschoolers: • Read as often as you and your child can, and prepare for reading aloud by previewing the books you intend to read together. • The art of listening is acquired, and so it must be taught and cultivated gradually — if you have ever had your child run away during the middle of a page, you already know

Still have fond memories of reading your young summers away? Pass those feelings on to your kids.

About to leave on a much-needed vacation, Lerae Bigelow thought she had made plans for just about everything. But when her boss demanded that she cancel her trip at the last minute, she realized there was one contingency she had overlooked — her own dismissal. As a supervisor for the

Alberta-based oilfields service company T.C. Mobile Vessels Ltd., Bigelow thought she had complied with the usual vacation protocol: She notified her boss that she was attending a family reunion at the end of August and spoke to him again one week before her trip to ensure everything was in order. However, on the day of her departure, her boss called from out of town demanding that she change her plans and work that night. Bigelow explained that she had scheduled a vacation and it was too late to reschedule. Thinking he was entitled to issue the directive and that Bigelow would have to obey, her

boss got upset when she refused to take the shift. He later called her demanding that she return her equipment to the company. When she returned from vacation, Bigelow received a text message from her boss confirming that she had been dismissed. Although he later testified that he would have considered rehiring Bigelow had she returned his calls, Bigelow was not interested in returning. Since Bigelow was not paid any severance, she sued T.C. Mobile. Recently she won her case. In declining to change her vacation plans, Bigelow had disobeyed a direct order from the boss. How-

ever, it was an order that was unreasonable, and it was the first time Bigelow had done so, the court ruled. The court noted that “although an employer is entitled to request that an employee re-book vacation to accommodate its requirements, the employer must be reasonable.� Here, the request was made at the last minute and after Bigelow had already obtained approval. Vacations are important benefits and, once approved, should be not interfered with, unless there is a very good reason. DANIEL LUBLIN IS AN

has just heard. • Vary the subject matter and length of the books you read. Reading above your child’s reading level on occasion can motivate a child’s love of learning and helps to build vocabulary. • If chapters are too long for one reading session, find a stopping point that generates a little suspense. • Some children may find it difficult to sit and listen. Paper, crayons, and pencils allow them to keep their hands busy while listening. • Talk about what you are reading. Foster your child's curiosity and answer questions to make the entire process more enjoyable. Questions are a great way to check comprehension. And don't be afraid to add your own personality to the story. It's okay to make fun of pictures, or talk about words that sound silly. Reading aloud will increase your child's motivation to read, and will help your child to build pre– reading skills necessary for later years. Summer reading can be fun, but it can also be one of the best investments you make in the future of your child. NEWS CANADA

“Losing is not an option. We want to win this thing, and France is standing in our way right now.” AMERICAN FORWARD ABBY WAMBACH ON THE UNITED STATES’ WOMEN’S WORLD CUP SEMIFINAL MATCH AGAINST FRANCE TONIGHT

“We have what it takes. It’s just a matter of putting it all together.” WAMBACH

MLB All-star MVP Prince Fielder.

The Vancouver Whitecaps announced the signing of Mustapha Jarju yesterday with hopes the striker can turn around the club’s inaugural season and blossom into a star. The 24-year-old, who is the first-ever African Major League Soccer designated player, netted 25 goals and had 13 assists between his Belgian second-division squad and the Gambian national team. Head coach and director of soccer operations Tom Soehn hopes Jarju, who arrives with a four-year contract, will combine to make a fearsome strike

partnership with the club’s other DP, Eric Hassli. “The thing that obviously drew us to him was his nose for goal and his ability also to set up goals,” said Soehn. “Whenever you have two different guys that are a threat ... it takes attention away from one of them.” Team president Bob Lenarduzzi also emphasized the need to bolster the Whitecaps scoring ability. “For someone like Eric Hassli, who has for the most part been the lone gunman up front ... it will be nice,” Lenarduzzi said. “We were looking for a player like Mustapha who has the quality we think

that creates a pretty good tandem up front.” Lenarduzzi teased a line-up that would include Hassli and Jarju up front with Camilo on their wing and playmaker Davide Chiumiento lurking in central midfield. The Whitecaps have scored just 19 goals, third worst in the league. Twelve of those goals have come from Hassli and Camilo and just five other players have managed to score a goal this season. Jarju said he wants to make an instant impact on a team desperate to win. “I’m hopeful I can start Saturday and start scoring,” he said. “I’m OK coming here. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem for

me to be in the system. I hope if everyone is back (from injury) we’re going to start winning.” Soehn will assess Jarju’s fitness in training this week before deciding on whether to give him playing time Saturday. According to MLS rules, Jarju’s salary-cap hit will be just $335,000, despite the fact he will make more money. The cap hit will be pro-rated this season. Vancouver sits at the bottom of the league with a record of 2-10-8 and have a tough stretch ahead. They host one of the league’s top teams, Real Salt Lake, Saturday before a high-profile friendly with Manchester City on Monday.

Pitching, speed and a little bit of power. The National League is back on top in the all-star game, using the same formula that worked during its dominating run in the 1970s and ’80s. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and Roy Halladay and his relief combined on a six-hitter to lead the NL over the American League 5-1 last night, giving the senior circuit its first two-game winning streak since the mid-1990s. The victory handed the NL home-field advantage in the World Series. With several big names as noshows at Chase Field in Phoenix, the AL lost more than the game. Boston right-hander Josh Beckett warmed up, then bowed out with a sore knee. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left after hurting his side. Even before they were hurt, many stars were missing. Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez and many other aces started Sunday and were ineligible. Chipper Jones and Alex Rodriguez were among those on the disabled list and Derek Jeter wanted a break. In all, 16 of 84 allstars were dropped. Fielder won the MVP award after becoming the first Brewers player to homer in an all-star game. The World Series edge could help him later, with Milwaukee and St. Louis tied for the Central Division lead at the break. The NL dashed around the bases and stole three bags, all in one inning. In all, the Nationals have enjoyed their best run since taking three in a row from 1994-96 — they had lost 12 straight games played to a decision before a 3-1 victory at Anaheim last year.

All eyes on McIlroy ahead of British Open Youngster from Northern Ireland facing Tiger-like attention and expectations at Royal St. George’s ROSS KINNAIRD/GETTY IMAGES

Rory McIlroy slipped into his seat without great fanfare yesterday, his presence detected by a sudden burst of camera shutters when the photographers realized the star of this British Open had arrived. It was his first time at a news conference since that Sunday evening at Congressional, and it all looked familiar except that the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland no longer had the shiny U.S. Open trophy at his side. In its place were expectations of many more majors to follow, perhaps starting with this one. McIlroy has a chance to join the elite group of players that have captured the U.S. Open and British Open in the same year. McIlroy knew it was

Commish weighs in on ballpark safety Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says major league teams are reviewing stadium safety following the death of a fan at a Texas Rangers game last week. The fan, 39-year-old Shannon Stone, fell over a railing while trying to catch a ball thrown to the stands by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton. “It was a horrible accident, heartbreaking, almost beyond comprehension,” Selig said yesterday during a question-and-answer session with the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. “Each team determines its own ballpark-safety features based on local laws. “Maybe there’s some things they can or can’t do,” Selig said. “Common sense should always take over in this situation.” Selig also said he had found more support than he had expected for a onegame playoff between wildcard teams if the playoffs expand from eight to 10 clubs in 2012.

quite an achievement, setting scoring records at the U.S. Open and winning by eight shots. “I didn’t realize how much of a fuss it would create or how much of a buzz,” he said. “It’s been nice. I thought it was great for me to win the U.S. Open, win my first major. The support that I’ve had from people back home, from everyone all over the world, has been pretty overwhelming.” It was impossible to

miss yesterday. This is the new world of McIlroy. And he says he is ready for it. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do,” McIlroy said. “I’ve always wanted to be a successful golfer and be one of the best players in the world and to win major championships. If I have to put up with a few things along the way, then I’m fine with that.” McIlroy became the youngest major champion since Tiger Woods won his first major at Augusta National in 1997 when he was 21. The last four major champions are all in their 20s, the first time that has happened in more than a century. The British Open gets underway tomorrow. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

20-second drop top

Smooth ride

Mighty SS

The Camaro’s well-insulated power-operated cloth top is secured by a single centre-mounted latch and takes just 20 seconds for the windows to automatically lower and the top to fully retract. Chevy can also supply a windscreen that’s secured between the seats to help keep most baby-boomer comb-overs in place.

The firm-riding Camaro features 20-inch wheels that, when tested, clung tenaciously to the twisty tarmac. The optional leather-covered bucket seats provided equal grip and were pleasantly comfortable for long-distance driving. You’ll also be hard-pressed to see or feel any bizarre shaking or body flex that’s problematic on some other convertible designs.

The Camaro convertible SS model comes with a 426-horsepower 6.2-litre V8 and a six-speed manual transmission. There’s also a 312-horsepower 3.6-litre V6 unit that comes with the optional sixspeed automatic. Still, its extra-cost black centre stripe and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels made it appear almost indistinguishable from the mighty SS.

For all its size, the Camaro convertible doesn’t hold much in the way of people or cargo. But that’s not really the point of this style statement, now is it.

Cruising season is finally here; need a reminder? MALCOLM GUNN

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA WHEELBASE MEDIA

High-school reunions are great for reminiscing about the way we were. And the perfect four-wheeled time machine for such an event is the 2011 Camaro convertible.

The year I departed my alma mater in 1967 was the Camaro’s freshman season. By then, Ford’s groundbreaking Mustang had been around for two and a half years and had generated worldwide sales in excess of 1.3 million copies. Even so, the Chevy rival attracted plenty of atten-

tion with its head-turning good looks and enough available grunt to lay down lengthy rubber strips whenever the driver tapped the gas pedal. To my teenage way of thinking, the original Camaro’s sophistication and swagger (especially the Rally Sport convertible model

with its hidden headlights) blew the Mustang into the weeds and would have been my personal preference if only I had possessed the financial wherewithal. Chevrolet mothballed the Camaro on its 35th anniversary in 2002, but with great fanfare the stunning coupe returned for the

2010 model year. The convertible was released this past February, just in time for the spring and summer cruising season. Whether it’s around the block or across the country, the Camaro should definitely transport you to another state of mind.

Base price: $32,900 Classic design with muscular V6 and V8 power. GT500 model sizzles.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Low-volume ragtop has great looks, but I4 and optional V6 lack power.

Chrysler 200 Base price: $31,500 Restyled former Sebring is much improved. New V6 option adds punch. WHEELBASE MEDIA

or “lumpiness” in acceleration could be caused by a bad engine sensor or ignition coil packs, and that any check engine lights should be investigated by a trained VW mechanic. Finally, check the floor carpeting, especially around the front footwells for signs of moisture, which could indicate a clogged or pinched-off sunroof drainage tube.

What’s the 4-1-1 Model: 2009 to 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan Vehicle type: Crossover SUV

JUSTIN PRITCHARD DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

The VW Tiguan is a compact SUV that was launched in 2009 to Canadian shoppers. Still on sale, the model receives an update for the 2011 model year. With standard turbo power, two or all-wheel drive and sporty driving dynamics, the Volkswagen Tiguan stood out in the marketplace as a sporty and exciting contender. Standard equipment included a two-litre four-cylinder turbo engine with 200 horsepower, front-wheel drive and a five-speed man-

ual transmission. A sixspeed automatic was available, and standard on 4Motion all wheel drive models. Feature content included heated leather seating, a sunroof, navigation, rainsensing wipers, a backup camera, Bluetooth and automatic climate control. What Owners Like

Tiguan owners typically rave about sporty ride and handling characteristics, impeccable fit and finish, classy styling, and a long list

What Owners Dislike

Start a test-drive of the Tiguan with a full check of all interior electronics — including the power/heated seats, navigation system and all lights. A few owners have reported having transmis-

Common Issues

Complaints of the Tiguan tend to be centred around minor interior rattles as the vehicle ages, as well as its requirement to run on premium gas. Some owners wish for

sions replaced under warranty, and others note a strange and intermittent “thump” as the vehicle comes to a stop in traffic. Information on Tiguan transmission issues is scarce, but if the automatic gearbox in the unit you’re considering exhibits any unwelcomed behaviour, be sure to have it checked out. Note that any sputtering

Tiguan will command a price premium for its purchase and operating costs, though most owners agree that the upscale driving experience and sporty performance more than compensate.
