Montreal Actor Jamie Mayers' Journey to Venus T he road to becoming an actor certainly has its challenges.There are auditions to prepare for, many on short notice - followed by triumphs and disappointments. Landing a role is exciting and rewarding, but with it comes long hours of memorizing lines, rehearsals, costume fitting and much more. It's not easy to make it in the 'biz' -

and for young actors, that road could be long. It is a commitment their parents must make as well, becoming micromanagers during the process; taking them to auditions, fittings, balancing their acting gigs with school work - and making sure the rules for minors are followed and their child is well taken care of. treal-actor-jamie-mayers-journey-to-venus/

he yellow 'protest badges' worn by some residents at an Outremont Borough council meeting on Monday night, is being called thoughtless and

by the borough's Hasidic residents to transport their children and members of the community to school and around the neighbourhood, a 'nuisance'. It is causing outrage from the Jewish community and by many others across Montreal (and beyond) who are having difficulty understanding how they could have not seen what it clearly brought to mind. One woman, Ginette Chartre, a representative the group wearing the badges, defended it as a 'symbol to express irritaBy Bonnie Wurst tion with the bus situation'. “It’s a way of talking, of expression, just like the naïve.

They called the smaller mini-buses, used regularly by the borough's Hasidic residents to transport their children and members of the community to school and around the neighbourhood, a 'nuisance'.

And despite of being told by other residents the yellow square evoked the Holocaust, Chartre said she wouldn’t stop wearing it. “We’ll march down the street wearing them, banging pots and pans if we have to… we are living an injustice, we are being persecuted by them.” Outremont resident Jennifer Dorner, a representative of the community group Pluralism Outremont, was at the

meeting and told the council she was 'disturbed', calling the badges 'unacceptable' and asking those wearing them to remove them. She also explained why they were offensive and also criticized the group's targeting of the school buses. "As a citizen living close to so many Jewish neighbours, many of which are my friends in the Hasidic community, I feel it's necessary to talk about this. When we see

this and hear about these kinds of actions that are completely ignorant of the history that impacts 25% of the population of our neighbourhood, it's just appalling." There have been disputes going on for years now between the Hasidic community and some residents of Outremont, the latter often questionable in their intent. This incident is sure to spark continued debate.

Daylight Saving Time – Do we save anything?


aylight Saving Time (DST) is coming this weekend, something that really started in Germany and Austria during World War I., They called it Sommerzeit or Summer Time, a name that is still used and which in our case is nothing but a sad irony: we are still in what looks like an endless winter, and usually that’s the situation until the end of March. Let’s not deceive ourselves Canadian winters rarely end when the calendar says they should end. This German-Austrian invention was used intermittently in many countries during the following decades but it was definitely revived

during the energy crisis of the early 1970s becoming more or less a global phenomenon today. In our case—like many other things in which the Canadian elites are mindless followers—we have simply adapted our clocks to the dictates of the Americans. The rationale for DST is that advancing the clock one hour when supposedly there is more daylight would save energy, especially electricity since during the summer months the evenings would have more natural light. The claims of electricity savings are however highly contested, in fact there is no conclusive evidence that such energy savings really

occur. That is particularly true in the case of Canada. Unlike the United States where generally the winters are shorter due to their geographic location, Canada being much more to the north doesn’t enjoy a significant increase in daylight by this time of the year; that may come by the second or third week in April but not before. This difference with respect to our neighbours results in turn in an increased use of artificial light in the morning which cancels out the hypothetical savings of the evening.We all know that by advancing the clock one hour those who had to get up at 6:30 or 7 in the morning with DST they are indeed doing it one hour earlier when most of Canada is still quite dark. Moreover, since usually that is also the period of the day when temperatures are the lowest, that brings an increase in other forms of energy namely gasoline, since people will need extra time to start their cars, indirectly throwing more carbon emissions into our atmosphere. To make things worse, when in 2006 the Americans

By Sergio Martinez

Sunday in April and end the last Sunday of October, to begin now the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November, the Canadian authorities slavishly followed suit without considering the climatic and geographic differences. At the time the reason given was that we needed to be synchronized with the Americans because many Canadian companies do business with the U.S. and therefore we have to be able to contact them on their own time (!). That reason certainly doesn’t hold any water: for a bunch of people

who die to sell something to their Americans counterparts we are all subjected to losing one hour of sleep and battle the cold weather? Indeed we are neither saving electricity nor any other form of energy and we are not gaining any large amount of extra light after people finish working because our northern evenings don’t have all that extra light that our American neighbours enjoy. It seems that when it comes to time, the wisest people are those in Saskatchewan who never got into this DST scheme.

Healing Power of Cold Laser

or years, pain management treatment options have relied on drugs, surgery, and other mechanical attempts to stopping the pain. With more and more people getting addicted to pain killers and pain pills that only mask the pain, and others being failed, hurt, and even killed by invasive surgeries; laser pain management options could not have come at a better time. With over an 80% success rate on a variety of failed medical surgeries and procedures, we get our patients pain free, without addictive pain killers, muscle relaxers, other pain pills, and without any form of surgery whatsoever. Our treatments are pain free, side-effect free, and actually allow your body to


stimulate blood flow, cell repair, tissue growth—lighting the way to a healthy, pain free body. Successes in Pain Management with Laser Medicine: Laser therapy not only treats pain; it also promotes healing and gradually eliminates inflammation to help the regeneration of tissue. Medical conditions that respond well to laser therapy include tendonitis, arthritis, sprains and strains, sciatica, heel pain, knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain, Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, hip pain, tennis/golfer’s elbow, back pain and neck pain. Laser technology can also be highly effective in treating various skin and soft-tissue injuries – including diabetic ulcers,as

well as chronic or sharp pain. Many types of laser therapy are available, depending on the type and severity of the pain. Stop smoking! Low-level laser therapy is an application that will assist you with the cessation of your smoking addiction. The laser is applied to various points throughout your body, face and hands, which triggers neurotransmitters to release endorphins – the body’s anti-stress hormones. This release will get you through the initial physical deprivation stage when feelings of stress and nervousness are at their highest. Most people typically require one treatment to end the smoking addiction.

Protecting your skin


By Martha Shannon

ebruary, you are not always a sunny month here in the north. We need the sun on our

skin. Let’s join the airport lineups to sunny destinations and be a chameleon. Lose the mittens, scarves and winter boots. Stuff them into the luggage side pockets … quickly, before your luggage is whisked to the bowels of the plane. Don the sunglasses, the sandals and the Hawaiian shirt. Inventory for the hundredth time the passports, the camera and scuba fins jutting from carry-ons. Adjust the sunhat. Revel in the buzz about the resort destination, weather reports. Dream of the margarita and pina colada’s and island music. The golf, the tours, the zen. Is it Cuba, Jamaica, Dominican, St Martens, Costa? Any

place where the sun shines to heal our souls is good for us. If you are fortunate to have lots of melanin in your skin to help protect you from the strong rays, then you should not be overly worried (but don’t be foolish) about sunburn. If your skin is lily white, BEWARE. Most of us have experienced sunburn. Not a pleasant experience. By now, most of us know our limitations. Your children do not, so it is up to you to teach them. A loyal customer called me last week, excited about her trip to Bermuda. Please tell me what I should bring with me in skin care because I do NOT want to use the chemical products on the market. "Use the zinc oxide when you are in the sun. Every morning apply emu or argan oil (mixed with tamanu is even better). The butters ( Sheamu and Shargan) are wonderful and can be applied anytime, but are especially

nourishing after a cleansing bath or shower. I also suggested our revitalizing eye oil blend. People LOVE it all over the face, not just around the eyes. And the SPF of these products is good. Moisturizing and protecting." Do not travel anywhere without the neem salve and or the neembodybar. Essential in case it is the season for nosee-ums, bug bites, etc. We are not permitted to list any SPF factors but our customers look them up. They tell us that tamanu is an 18, emu is an 8, carrot is near 40. OILS do contain SPF factors and can help against extreme weathers. And of course, good old ZINC, the block. We stand behind our products.We give great customer service. Subscribe to our newsletter. Check out our BIOS.

How do you feel about drones?

rones, the more popular name being used today for 'Unmanned Aerial Vehicles' (UAVs), are remotely controlled aerial vehicles, controlled by humans or flown with the use of software to follow a pre-destined flight path. They are basically machines with cameras, sensors and GPS technology that fly through the air without a pilot inside.

jets were dispatched when two airplanes reported a drone flying too close to an airport landing route. There are some rules in Canada for the commercial operations of drones, but the recreational use of drones has been fundamentally unrestricted so far. Drones can be of great benefit to society by being able to travel to areas deemed too dangerous or impossible for people to get to, such as helping to fight fires and for search and rescue operations but their use is also growing in the area of photography, videography and even delivery services. Increasing use of drones in commercial and recreational areas have given rise to many concerns, such as the 'paparazzi' and others who have been By Bonnie Wurst crossing the lines of privacy by using them to take pictures of people in Many people flying their homes or in private drones today are hobby- locations. ists, using them for recreThey are even being ational purposes, but they employed to smuggle were first used by the mil- drugs and contraband itary for anti-aircraft tar- into prisons, using small get practice and drones to illegally deliver intelligence gathering.

Drones must stay within a pilot's line of sight and cannot fly directly over people. But the FAA is working on developing their rules in order to test their use for things such as urgent deliveries in hard-to-reach areas.

f you are a hockey fan and getting quite tired of watching the Habs play through the rest of this disastrous season, the APTN television network has the ideal alternative that will give you the chance to see some of the future stars of the NHL and other minor and professional hockey leagues take part in an elite hockey camp that will help develop and nurture their playing skills. Called “Hit the Ice”, it will begin its sixth season on APTN starting today (March 10) at 12 noon. The 15-episode series will showcase a group of 29 Midget and Junior Indigenous prospective hockey players – between the ages of 16 and 18 -- from communities across Canada, as they participate in an NHL-style training camp. The camp will be run by John Chabot, who played for the Habs, as well as the Penguins and Red Wings, and coached in different

capacities for the New York Islanders and several teams in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). Whether it be via the actual site of the training camp in Winnipeg, or virtual video, these participating hockey prospects will be put through a series of hockey drills and physical challenges until a final roster of 20 players is determined for the

The end result of the series will be the chance to play in a special exhibition game that will be watched by a number scouts representing several Junior hockey leagues, the Canadian Hockey League, and a number of American universities.

Massengill, whose rather risqué number with a member of the audience certainly raised a lot of eyebrows, not to mention gales of laughter. Ronnie Burkett certainly knows how to pull the right strings, and offers an evening of unusual, edgy entertainment with “The Daisy Theatre”. It brings the ancient art of puppetry to a whole new level of appreciation; and I am glad to say that this is certainly not your average kiddie puppet show! “The Daisy Theatre” runs at the Centaur until March 24; and please note that this show is for adults only (16 years of age and over).

That all changed when he was appointed Attorney General in his brother’s cabinet, and started to become more sensitive to issues that were affecting the U.S., especially the Civil Rights movement. After JFK’s assassination, and when Bobby was elected as a U.S. Senator in 1964 and became a presidential candidate in 1968, he realized what was severely dividing the nation, and vowed to solve these problems in a more unified manner. On June 4, 1968, in the wake of his victory in the California Primary, and the DemoBy Stuart Nulman cratic nomination in sight, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by an assassin brother Jack’s senatorial after his victory speech at campaigns of 1952 and the Ambassador Hotel in 1958, and his historic Los Angeles; he was only presidential election cam- 42 years old. paign in 1960, it was Chris Matthews, host of Bobby’s job to make sure “Hardball” on MSNBC, Jack looked really good practically grew up during when he met with and Bobby Kennedy’s rise in spoke to potential voters, politics and as a virtual as he did all the dirty “man of the people”.With work behind the scenes. It this year marking the 50th was basically the classic anniversary of Kennedy’s “good cop, bad cop” sce- tragic death, Matthews nario when it came to gives a new generation of Jack and Bobby Kennedy. readers a new apprecia-


tion of Robert Francis Kennedy, the man and the public figure who wanted to do good for his country and his people in Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit. Although Arthur Schelsinger’s massive 1978 biography Robert Kennedy and His Times is more thorough, Matthews’ book practically gives this generation of readers a more compact, yet no less informative, look at the life and political legacy of Bobby Kennedy. Basically, Bobby, the third son, built his career ambitions to get the much sought-after approval from his father Joseph P. Kennedy, although his attentions were lavished upon his two elder sons, Joe, Jr. and Jack (and was sometimes regarded by Jack as a bit of a nuisance). This meant Bobby fought harder, worked harder and put himself through his paces much harder to get that approval, whether he was a student at Harvard, worked as counsel for Senator Joe McCarthy’s controversial anti-Communist commit-

tee, or as chief counsel for the Senate Rackets Committee that investigated organized crime in America, in which his blood feud-type grilling of Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa in 1957 is the stuff of legend. As well, Matthews traces the personal and political transformation of Bobby Kennedy, which took a 360-degree turn immediately after JFK’s assassination. The reader gets a clear picture of the complexities and the issues that played a major part in that transformation, and the matters that he took to his heart as the next phase of his career happened with his election to the U.S. Senate in 1964, and what guided him to seek the Democratic nomination for president four years later, which was not only a quest to unseat incumbent Lyndon Johnson (whom he had a longrunning, vitriolic feud with since his Senate counsel days), but also try to heal a nation that was horribly divided by poverty, race riots, and the Vietnam

(Simon & Schuster, $38.99) War. And Matthews sprinkles the text with some personal examples of how his own life and ambitions paralleled that of Bobby Kennedy’s during his lifetime, which doesn’t dominate the book, but gives it a rather interesting personal perspective. For example, Matthews was in Montreal at the time of Bobby’s death (he was travelling there with a college friend of his, who was looking for a job in order to avoid the draft), and as a result of it, what he believes was the loss of America’s last best hope to get the country together again, decided to serve his country by joining the Peace Corps and spending a year in southern Africa (Swaziland, in particular). Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit is a concise, well-written appreciation of a much beloved public figure who enjoyed working within the shadow of his famous older brother, and became a political crusader who wanted to

make a real difference for the people he was sworn to serve. And in today’s rather unpredictable, volatile political climate in the U.S. today, we can take away from reading Chris Matthews’ book about Bobby Kennedy and wonder how different the country would have been had Bobby was not struck down by an assassin’s bullet on that fateful June night 50 years ago in L.A. As Kennedy told the overflowing crowd of supporters that night as he won the important California Primary (which somehow still resonates today):“I think we can end the divisions within the United States, whether it’s between blacks and whites, between the poor and the more affluent or between age groups or on the war in Vietnam. We can start to work together. We are a great country, an unselfish country. I intend to make that my basis for running.” March 10, 2018 •

y daughter, Keesha, gave me a challenge the other day. She wanted me to recreate her favourite sandwich from a café here in Ste Anne’s. She told me to go down and buy one, “It’s really awesome, Dad!” Well, I mused, it can’t be that much trouble to come up with a great tuna melt. I had some fresh bagels on hand. You could normally use a good sourdough bread but I figured the bagel would work very well. The other important part is to use some good tuna – solid white tuna packed in

water. Ingredients: • 2 cans solid white tuna, packed in water, drained • 1 stalk of celery, finely diced • 3 green onions, finely diced • 2 slices of red onion, finely diced • Salt and freshly ground pepper • Chopped fresh basil to taste • Chopped fresh oregano to taste • A small handful of baby arugula, finely chopped • 2 – 3 tbsp mayo • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar • 2 garden fresh tomatoes sliced into 1/8 inch thickness

Chefs Karen & Peter Webster

7 Collège, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Québec H9X 1W9 514-457-“BRIE” (2743) /


• Shredded cheddar and smoked cheddar cheese Mix the tuna with the celery, onions, salt and pepper, basil, oregano and arugula. Add in the mayo to bind the mixture – use just enough as you don’t want the tuna mixture to be swimming in mayo . Stir well, breaking up any chunks of tuna. Add in the balsamic vinegar. Slice the bagels in half. Place one slice of tomato over the hole. Top with the tuna mixture, place another slice of tomato on top, add some salt and pepper and finish with the shredded cheese. Place on a cookie sheet and put under the broiler at 400º. When the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, remove from the oven and serve immediately. When I asked my daughter her thoughts, she said they were “ok”. She did manage to eat three of them, however.

Alzheimer's Research Center, has researched the effects stress can have on memory and other cognitive functions. In the article “Living with Memory Loss”, they discuss which lifestyle changes and stress management techniques, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and sleep, can be helpful in reducing the chance of memory loss that may be associated with Alzheimer's disease.

and well being or poor health. Magneceutical Health™ has come up with a way to make relaxing a little easier. The Magnetic Resonance Therapy uses a device which uses precise, lowlevel, electromagnetic fields to assist in and enhance feelings of relaxation. By sitting within the magnetic field, this device uses whole body immersion instead of directing all pulses to one area of the body. This way, the low-level pulses can flow to whatever part of the body needs it most, all while you sit back and let the magnetic pulses do all the work. Magnetic energy healing is one form of complementary and alternative medicine. For years peo-

ple have turned to the healing energy of magnets because of its natural and non-invasive qualities. Some companies use jewelry, some use battery packs, but most of these forms of magnetic stimulation focus on only one area of the body, and may involve wearing or implanting a

device. With the Magnesphere™ you get all the benefits of natural magnetic field therapy, with the added bonus of enhanced relaxation. I have written about some of the successes we have experienced since we started this therapy in January of this year. We have used many

protocols for many ailments and have witnessed individuals feeling less pain after treatments. The added finding is that everyone feels totally relaxed after the treatment and most report sleeping so well after sessions in the Magnesphere chair. Let your body relax and it can deal with all kinds of insults. Relaxation should be the body’s natural state. Save the tense, alert state for when it is needed for life threatening events like running from a lion!!! Our bodies can’t handle being in a constant state of tension. Something will break!

over the years. Quebec’s global share fell from a high of around 80% in 2003 to just over 70% last year - whereas in Vermont, production has more than doubled over the past decade. Is it because it tastes better than Quebec's - or is it simply the economics of a growing industr y, regulations and m o r e t r e e s b e i n g tapped? Not all m a p l e syrup is the same. There are many factors that can affect the taste of syrup; like the weather, the soil the trees grow in and their overall health. The sugar maple is the preferred tree that is tapped, but there is also the red maple, black maple, ash leafed maple and silver maple - but the sugar content of those is only about 1%, compared to the sugar maple at 2% which is far more desired. Then there is the experience, care and artistry of

the people making it. It's something like producing a fine wine, and not all are appreciated in the same way. Much depends on the taste buds of the consumer - and poorly produced maple syrup can sometimes taste bitter, metallic or musty.

that stands out, and a lighter syrup for dribbling on things like french toast, ice cream and even as a sweetener for coffee. And when not overused, maple syrup also has many health benefits.

I've tasted Vermont syrup many times and it is good, but perhaps it’s the Canadian in me (after all our flag features a maple leaf) but Quebec syrup wins hands down. It is all you will find on the shelves in our kitchen or in the refrigerator - where it can stay fresh for over three months, but never lasts long enough for us to find out if it does.

he historic venture started on the night of November the 10th in 1952. Jack Koeppler, then-owner of the Buena Vista, challenged international travel writer Stanton Delaplane to help re-create a highly touted "Irish Coffee" served at Shannon Airport in Ireland. Intrigued, Stan accepted Jack’s invitation, and the pair began to experiment immediately. Throughout the night the two of them stirred and sipped judiciously and eventually acknowledged two recurring problems.

The taste was "not quite right," and the cream would not float. Stan’s hopes sank like the cream, but Jack was undaunted.The restaurateur pursued the elusive elixir with religious fervor, even making a pilgrimage overseas to Shannon Airport. Upon Jack’s return, the experimentation continued. Finally, the perfecttasting Irish whiskey was selected. Then the problem of the bottom-bent cream was taken to San Francisco’s mayor, a prominent dairy owner. It was discovered that when the cream was aged for

48 hours and frothed to a precise consistency, it would float as delicately as a swan on the surface of Jack’s and Stan’s special nectar. Success was theirs! With the recipe now mastered, a sparkling clear, six-ounce, heat-treated goblet was chosen as a suitable chalice. Soon the fame of the Buena Vista’s Irish Coffee spread throughout the land. Today, it’s still the same delicious mixture, and it’s still the same clamorous, cosmopolitan Buena Vista. Both…delightful experiences.
