Police track Ryan Catron to Eldorado after report of downtown attack By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

Following a police helicopter search and a short foot chase, a man was arrested early Sunday morning in the Eldorado subdivision on charges of assault and kidnapping after he allegedly battered a woman and tried to abduct her in downtown Santa Fe. Santa Fe police said 21-year-old Ryan Catron, 6 Carlito Road, is accused of choking the 26-year-old woman and shoving her into his car near Marcy Street and Washington Avenue. She managed to escape and flag down help, police said, but not before her attacker fled in his vehicle. A city police department news release Ryan Catron says officers received a call about the incident a little before 3 a.m. and requested aid from New Mexico State Police, who used a helicopter to locate Catron in a field near his home in Eldorado, about 15 miles from the city. It took officers

Taos minivan shooting prompts dueling protests

s winter sets in, the directors of Santa Fe’s two homeless shelters say their biggest need for the people they serve are coldweather clothes, especially shoes and socks. “We’ve had a lot of people coming to the door who have wet shoes [and] wet socks,” said St. Elizabeth Shelter Executive Director Deborah Tang. “The shoes and the socks are the biggest need right now. Because of the wet weather, keeping their feet warm is an important part of health for them.” But the homeless men outside a shelter Saturday morning were thinking of another way to stay warm — they said they would like a place indoors where they can spend the day. At the Interfaith Community Shelter, which reopened for the season Oct. 20 after being closed for overnight guests since April, people who spend the night must leave at 6:30 each morning and aren’t allowed to return until 6 p.m. At St. Elizabeth, which is open year-round, most

Two groups of Taos-area residents squared off Sunday in dueling protests over an October incident in which a New Mexico State Police officer shot at the tires of a minivan full of children. About 20 residents opposing the police action gathered at the Taos Youth and Family Center on Paseo del Cañon West and marched to the state police station down the road. They toted signs with messages such as “abuse of power,” “excessive force” and “do we need to police our police?” The group delivered two letters to state police: One denouncing the use of force in the traffic stop, and another acknowledging the difficult decisions police officers often have to make.

A cub called Bao Bao National Zoo names baby panda after receiving over 123,000 votes from public

By Brett Zongker

The Associated Press

W

ASHINGTON — The most popular giant panda in U.S.China relations finally was given an identity Sunday as the Smithsonian’s National Zoo named its female 100-day-old cub Bao Bao (bow-BOW) after receiving more than 123,000 votes online from the public. Bao Bao, which means “treasure” or “precious,” is only the second surviving cub born at the National Zoo since the first pandas arrived in 1972 to commemorate President Richard Nixon’s historic visit to China. Pandas have remained a happy symbol of diplomacy between the two countries. Panda mother Mei Xiang (may-SHONG) has been caring for her cub in the panda den since she was born Aug. 23. Bao Bao will have her public unveiling early in 2014. Panda keepers, however, said Mei Xiang has indicated she may want to take Bao Bao outside soon. Before she goes outside, veterinarians want to give Bao Bao her final set of vaccinations this week, so mother and cub could venture out as soon as the second week of December, said curator Brandie Smith. Mei Xiang’s only other surviving cub, a male named Tai Shan, was born in 2005 and was returned to China in 2010 for breeding. Male panda Tian Tian (tee-YEN tee-YEN) is the father of both cubs. The zoo asked the public to vote for one of five names for the new cub. The others were Ling Hua (ling-HWA), Long Yun (long-YOON), Mulan (moo-LAHN) and Zhen Bao (jenBAO). The names were submitted by Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai, U.S. Ambassador

to China Gary Locke, panda keepers at the National Zoo, the fundraising group Friends of the National Zoo and the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda. The chosen name was submitted by Friends of the National Zoo. In a videotaped message played at the zoo Sunday, first lady Michelle Obama said it was first lady Pat Nixon who helped “jump-start panda diplomacy” after admiring the bears during the Nixons’ visit to China in 1972. “After decades of close collaboration with our Chinese partners, these remarkable

animals stand as a symbol of the growing connections between our two countries,” Obama said. Peng Liyuan, the first lady of China, also sent a video message, saying giant pandas are China’s “national treasure.” “Many people love baby pandas as they love their own children,” she said. Dozens of people and reporters gathered for the naming ceremony Sunday, 100 days after the cub’s birth following Chinese tradition. Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai said it’s a unique celebration.

arrived to begin an investigation. As darkness fell over the wreckage about 10 miles north of Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal, Weener said investigators already had downloaded data from an “event recorder” on the train, which they hoped would determine its speed and other details. Investigators were due to examine factors ranging from the track condition to the crew’s performance. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the track did not appear to be faulty, leaving speed as a possible culprit for the crash. The speed limit on the curve is 30 mph, compared with 70 mph in the area approaching it, Weener said. The victims were identified as Donna L. Smith, 54, of Newburgh; James G. Lovell, 58, of Cold Spring; James M. Ferrari, 59, of Montrose; and Ahn Kisook, 35, of Queens. Three of the dead were found outside the train, and one was found inside, authorities said.

NEW YORK — Did stores shoot themselves in the foot? Target, Macy’s and other retailers offered holiday discounts in early November and opened stores on Thanksgiving Day. It was an effort to attract shoppers before Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that traditionally kicks off the holiday shopping season. Those tactics drew bigger crowds, but failed to motivate Americans to spend. A record 141 million people are expected to shop in stores and online over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend that ends Sunday, up from last year’s 137 million, according to the results of a survey of nearly 4,500 shoppers conducted for the National Retail Federation. But total spending is expected to fall for the first time ever since the trade group began tracking it in 2006, according to the survey that was released on Sunday. Over the four days, spending fell an estimated 2.9 percent to $57.4 billion.

KIEV, Ukraine — A protest by about 300,000 Ukrainians angered by their government’s decision to freeze integration with the West turned violent Sunday, when a group of demonstrators besieged the president’s office and police drove them back with truncheons, tear gas and flash grenades. Dozens of people were injured. The mass rally in central Kiev defied a government ban on protests on Independence Square, in the biggest show of anger over President Viktor Yanukovych’s refusal to sign a political and economic agreement with the European Union. The protesters also were infuriated by the violent dispersal of a small, opposition rally two nights before.

Egypt police fire tear gas at ousted president’s supporters CAIRO — Police fired tear gas to drive hundreds of supporters of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president from Cairo’s famed Tahrir Square on Sunday, as a panel tasked with amending the constitution adopted during his time in office agreed on changes to the text. The 50-member panel revising the Islamist-tilted charter adopted under former President Mohammed Morsi managed to resolve its differences after two days of clause-by-clause voting on the final draft. The text gives women and Christians “suitable representation” but says a future law must decide the details. It also calls for elections, either parliamentary or presidential, within 90 days after the draft constitution is adopted. The other election should be held up to six months later.

Amazon CEO says company testing drone deliveries Amazon.com Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said the world’s largest e-commerce company is testing drones to deliver goods, as it works to improve efficiency and speed in getting products to consumers. Bezos unveiled the plan on CBS’s 60 Minutes news program, showing interviewer Charlie Rose the flying machines that can be used as delivery vehicles. The CEO said the gadgets, known as octocopters, can carry as much as five pounds within a 10-mile radius of an Amazon fulfillment center. Amazon may start using the drones, which can deliver packages within 30 minutes, in four to five years pending Federal Aviation Administration approval, Bezos said. “It will work, and it will happen, and it’s gonna be a lot of fun,” he said in the 60 Minutes interview. Amazon last month said it was teaming up with the U.S. Postal Service to begin Sunday delivery. The company invests heavily in distribution and delivery, which made up the largest portion of the Amazon’s expenses in the third quarter. Investors have endorsed the spending on capacity — the costs increased 35 percent to $2.03 billion — pushing up the company’s shares 57 percent so far this year even as it posts losses.

N.Y. train derailment leaves four dead NEW YORK — Passengers were dozing early Sunday as a Metro-North train headed into a sharp curve on tracks overlooking where the Harlem and Hudson rivers meet. Just after 7:20 a.m., the screeching sound of metal on metal pierced the quiet cars. Residents in nearby homes heard loud bangs and saw train cars wobbling toward the water. Snoozing passengers were jolted awake when rocks, dirt and other debris flew into their faces through shattered windows as the cars tipped over and slid along the ground. Three passengers were hurled from the train to their deaths. A fourth died inside the wreckage,

Robert Menendez, D-N.J., said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “It sounds like the front door has been opened successfully now.” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said on the same program that he hopes “the efficacy of this is much better today and will improve.” But he added that he thinks Americans will encounter “a lot of negative surprises” as they enroll in plans offered on the new health care exchanges. A combination of federal employees, outside contractors and a handful of technical and management experts have worked for five weeks to improve the website’s performance as the White House has come under fierce criticism from its political opponents and some consumers. It may be hard, however, to independently assess how well the site has met the administration’s goals of working smoothly

for “the vast majority of users” until it experiences a real-time surge in high volume from consumers during peak demand. The Obama administration has been under intense public and political pressure to meet its self-imposed deadline for correcting the many defects that became apparent when healthcare.gov opened Oct. 1. Whether the upbeat assessment in the report and in Sunday’s call with reporters is warranted will only become clear as more Americans try to buy health insurance in coming weeks and months. Even on Saturday, some applicants who tried enrolling hours after a key upgrade was supposed to have been completed said they were unable to complete the process. “I only made it halfway through the second section,” said Liz Gallops, an insurance broker in Winston-Salem, N.C., who has tried several times to see the coverage options available for herself, husband and daughter. “I entered my dependents, but the system continued to ask me who my dependents were and would only let me add new, not claim the ones I had already entered.” On Saturday night, technical workers made a few software changes but not any significant hardware upgrades, according to a government official familiar with the project.

Kidnapping: Woman says man was ‘waving her down’ for help Continued from Page A-1 three hours and a short foot chase to capture the man. Police arrested Catron on a warrant that included charges of kidnapping, battery and assault with intent to commit a violent felony. Catron also was arrested in the city in October — on a charge of DWI and on a warrant for an Indiana charge of child solicitation. Celina Westervelt, the police department’s spokeswoman, said the woman had marks around her throat and bruises on her body but was otherwise uninjured. Westervelt also said it’s unlikely that Catron knew the woman before allegedly attacking her. “That’s definitely not the kind of crime we want to see,” Westervelt said. “It looks like in this case he was watching her.” The incident started when the woman left El Paseo Bar & Grill, 208

Galisteo St. On her way back to her car, the city police news release says, she heard someone walking behind her. And when she got into her car, parked at the Sandoval Parking Garage, 216 W. San Francisco St., she saw a man “waving her down.” She told police the man asked to borrow her phone, and she gave it to him. Claiming to be hearing impaired, the man typed out a message on the phone, identifying himself and asking for a ride to his car, which was parked a few blocks away on Marcy Street and Washington Avenue. Westervelt said police have determined Catron does have some hearing impairment. The news release says the woman offered to help the man because she thought she was doing “a good deed.” But once she arrived at the man’s white Volvo 240, police said, he started requesting more favors. The woman told police the man had asked if he could follow her home and sleep in

her driveway, but she declined. She told police the man then asked her to help search for his phone charger, which he said was somewhere in his car. She said she found the charger and plugged it in for him. It’s unclear from the police statement if the man was speaking when he made the requests or if he typed them into her phone or communicated in another way. What is clear, according to the police statement, is that the man asked the woman for a hug, and she agreed. With her back to the open driver’s side door of the man’s car, she told police, she began to put her arms around him. However, instead of returning the gesture, she alleged, the man put his hands around her throat and tried strangling her for close to 20 seconds. Simultaneously, she alleged, he pushed her into the car and tried to lock the doors. After the woman was “able to kick him off,” she told police, she escaped

the man’s car through the passenger door and bolted into Marcy Street. There, she found a security guard and called 911 while the man drove away. Police tracked Catron to Eldorado, where he was reportedly hiding in a field near a home where he lives. Westervelt said police set up a squaremile perimeter and then slowly tightened the surveillance area. When Catron saw police, he darted, she said, but officers were able to capture him. Catron is being held in the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of a $100,000 cash bond. Westervelt said it’s unclear if Catron lives alone at the Eldorado home or with other residents. On Sunday afternoon, people at the home declined to comment about Catron’s arrest or his living situation. They also declined to disclose their relationship to Catron. A white Volvo matching the police department’s description of Catron’s vehicle was parked nearby.

and Opportunity Center, reports it’s pushing twice its maximum limit of 60 overnight guests since the recent snowstorm. “We like to say we don’t turn anyone away,” said Guy Gronquist, chairman of the shelter’s board of directors. The interfaith shelter, according to its website, got started after several people froze to death on Santa Fe’s streets during the winters of 2005-06 and 2006-07. In 2011, the city bought the former home of Pete’s Pets and helped refurbish the building as a seasonal emergency overnight shelter. After closing for overnight guests in April, the facility continued to be used for food distribution, health care and detoxification programs, and then it reopened for overnight guests Oct. 20. Gronquist said the main nonfood items needed at the shelter now are men’s jeans, underwear and socks. “We need, of course, continued good will

and political support. … Most of all, we need their continued cash donations.” Tang said another need at St. Elizabeth is volunteer help. The shelter had plenty of volunteers lined up to serve meals on the holidays, she said, but “the rest of the year, we need them.” Organizations that provide food are also seeing an increase in need this holiday season. Sherry Hooper, executive director of The Food Depot, said her organization sees an increase in both need and giving during the holidays. “The holidays are all traditionally a time when The Food Depot sees substantial increases in emergency food assistance,” she said. “At the same time, we’re fortunate that so many people want to give during the holiday season. … What we find, of course, is that hunger is a yearround crisis.”

The Food Depot solicits food from groceries and other private donors, as well as state and federal agencies, to supply 135 programs, including food pantries, homeless shelters and soup kitchens, in nine counties in Northern New Mexico. “We have we seen an increase [in need] due to cuts to food stamps, also because of the cold,” Hooper said. Susan Odiseos, president of Food for Santa Fe, an all-volunteer food pantry that distributes food from a drive-up window around behind the Coll-Greene Angel Depot, 1222 Siler Road (also home of The Food Depot), said government cutbacks to food programs is not only increasing demand from people in need but also is taking a toll on food aid organizations. The cuts mean her group can distribute only 600 grocery bags a week, she said, instead of the 900 it had been distributing each week in past years.

Data: Pose consequences for science and society Continued from Page A-1 science. Last year, the Obama administration launched a $200 million Big Data in Science initiative, with the goals of enhancing economic growth and job creation, education and health, clean energy and environmental sustainability, public safety and global development. What are we to make of all this? Are Big Data and predictive analytics truly a gold mine for business, science and government? Or are they a serious threat to our privacy and freedom? This is a highly complex problem with enormous consequences for both science and society. That’s why my colleagues and I at the Santa Fe Institute and its Business Network recently invited more than 100 experts from industry, science and government to Bishop’s Lodge in Santa Fe to give careful thought to Big Data’s opportunities and threats. Here are some highlights of what we learned: u Kenneth Cukier, data editor for The Economist, made the case stated in the title of his recent book Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think. u Computer technologist and author Jaron Lanier summarized the key idea of his recent book, Who Owns the Future?, that the Internet is an engine of increasing inequality in wealth and power.

Protests: Chief meets with groups

Cold: Men cite need for activities guests must leave at 8 a.m. weekdays or 9 a.m. on weekends and cannot return until 3 p.m. Billy Holmes, 41, who said he is originally from Dallas and has been a transient for 20 years, was one of a dozen men sunning themselves outside the Interfaith Community Shelter, 2801 Cerrillos Road, on Saturday. “On Thanksgiving Day, they let us stay in and have our coffee and have cigarette breaks, whatever,” he said. “But I feel as though every day of the week, even the weekends, we should be allowed to stay a little longer, until the sun comes up completely and throws off some heat.” Daniel Turner, 45, who said he used to live in Mora and worked at a local hospital, suggested the shelter put up a basketball goal in the parking lot, so the people living there can have some activity during the day. “Arts and crafts — more things that we could do instead of sitting in front of here, or just a place to watch TV for a while and just kick it,” he said. Over at St. Elizabeth, 804 Alarid St., a man who declined to give his name, but said he was from Chihuahua, Mexico, didn’t discuss crafts, TV or basketball. He was busy digging through piles of donated clothes to find a heavy winter coat. When asked if St. Elizabeth has seen an increase in overnight stays as the weather has turned colder, Tang said, “We are full all the time. That’s yearround.” St. Elizabeth’s main shelter can house up to 28 men overnight, while its Casa Familia shelter for women and children, 1604 Berry Street, can hold another 35 people.

Catron previously made headlines after crashing his vehicle in the 2800 block of Cerrillos Road in mid-October. Santa Fe officers charged him with drunken driving and, after a records check, discovered he was wanted on a charge of child solicitation in Indiana, according to police. The nature of the Indiana charges has never been clear, and a cursory search of the Indiana court system’s online records revealed only speeding citations for Catron. But he is still facing the “out-of-state fugitive” charge in the First District Court in Santa Fe. He was released from jail on that charge in late October on a $20,000 cash bond. Westervelt said police are seeking more information about Catron, and that anyone with information can call officers at 428-3710.

lead of President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign, described how he and his colleagues helped transform political campaigning from a focus on traditional voting blocks based on age, gender and ethnicity to campaigns targeted to specific individual citizens. u Astrophysicist Alex Szalay of Johns Hopkins University said science is moving rapidly toward a “fourth paradigm.” u In “Big Data, from Galileo to Gödel,” Simon DeDeo, a former SFI Omidyar Postdoctoral Fellow, showed how the constructive interplay of Big Data, theory and computation can reveal underlying truths, not only in the physical and biological sciences, but also in the social sciences and even the humanities. u Noted historian of the NSA James Bamford addressed the “Dangerous Duo: When Big Brother and Big Data Come Together.” Without needed legal constraints and congressional and court oversight, he argued, the NSA’s ever more sophisticated data collection, analysis and code-breaking capabilities pose serious threats to privacy and freedom. So, what should we conclude? Is Big Data the opportunity its proponents contend? Or is it a threat whose costs outweigh its potential benefits? Based on our assessment, Big Data is quite clearly both, depending upon the specific application being considered. In business, the mix can vary across the type of business and the degree to which customers perceive Big Data to be in their own interest or just the interests of those trying to sell them something. For example, some of us

will find that the “free” services and the convenience of “you might be interested in” offered by Google, Facebook and Amazon are well worth the costs of providing them extensive information about ourselves or viewing the ads they relentlessly deliver us. Others will decide the benefits are not worth those costs and will “just say no.” But at least in the cases of Google, Facebook, Amazon and their kin, we have the opportunity to choose. In other cases (auto insurance, credit histories, law enforcement, the NSA), we do not. In science, the mix of opportunity and threat varies, too. A number of our speakers, including SFI Distinguished Professor and past president Geoffrey West, emphasized the essential role of theory in using and understanding Big Data. In a world where scientists are drinking from the data fire hose, the data are of little use without theory. And the data need to be the right data for the scientific questions at hand. For example, the availability of large-scale social network data from Twitter and Facebook has captured the attention of social scientists. But are the conclusions drawn from studies of our behavior on social media networks likely to generalize to the real world of everyday interpersonal interactions? We shall see. What is clear is that the scientific questions need to drive the collection of data and not vice versa. The tension between opportunity and threat is most acute for the NSA. Gen. Keith Alexander, NSA director, has argued that hunting for terrorists in the deluge of telecommunications and Inter-

net data is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, and “you need the haystack to find the needle.” This “collect it all” strategy ignores the fact that as the total amount of data increases without bound, the ratio of true-positive “needles” to “false-positive” chaff decreases accordingly. A data collection approach targeted at suspected individuals and groups is likely to be more productive, not to mention more constitutional. Telecommunications and Internet companies are starting to push back against unfettered data collection by the NSA, and Congress on both sides of the aisle is beginning to question the “you need the haystack” rationale. Whatever your own views on Big Data and the NSA, I believe we can achieve a better balance between our government’s legitimate role of protecting its citizens and its equally important role of ensuring the constitutional guarantees of privacy and freedom. I also believe that the proliferation of Big Data and predictive analytics in all their manifestations is an urgent matter requiring our immediate attention. In the Stephen Spielberg film Minority Report, individuals could be arrested for crimes they had not yet committed but were deemed likely to commit by psychics called “pre-cogs.” Without adequate legal and regulatory protection, Big Data and predictive data analytics threaten to become the Minority Report of the all-too-near future. Chris Wood is vice president for administration and director of the Business Network at the Santa Fe Institute.

When the demonstrators arrived at the state police station, they were met by counter-demonstrators who were in favor of the actions state police took in the case of Oriana Farrell, a Memphis resident. One man toted a sign that read, “When I’m in town, I listen to KTAOS, when Oriana’s is in town, I’m thankful for NMSP.” The demonstrations centered on a traffic stop Oct. 28, during which Officer Tony DeTavis pulled over Farrell just south of Taos. DeTavis tried to issue Farrell a speeding ticket, but instead of taking the ticket, Farrell drove off. When DeTavis caught up with her, a physical altercation ensued between the officer, Farrell and Farrell’s 14-year-old son, according to a dashboard camera video of the incident taken from the officer’s car. Five children, one as young as 6, were in Farrell’s van at the time. Farrell’s family members locked themselves inside the van, and DeTavis tried to break one of the van’s windows with his baton, the video shows. Farrell again sped off, and officer Elias Montoya, who had arrived on the scene, shot at the van’s rear wheels. After a chase through Taos, the officers caught up with Farrell, and she finally pulled over. The video of the incident has gone viral, and the story has gained national attention, raising questions about police use of force and high-speed chases. “This is not an issue of us versus them,” Patrick Trujillo, who organized Sunday’s event, told those demonstrating against the police action before they delivered their messages Sunday. But, Trujillo said, in cases in which law-enforcement officers use “excessive and deadly force,” social justice “needs to be pursued at whatever questionable ground.” Demonstrator Rivera Sun handed the group’s letters to state police Chief Pete Kassetas. “I buried my head in shame that this happened where I live,” Sun told Kassetas. Kassetas told the crowd he didn’t want to see the demonstration turn into a news conference. “As the chief, I came here by myself,” he said. “I’m tasked with a difficult job, and I will do that job.” Taos resident Diana Martinez, who participated in a demonstration supporting the police action, had set up a table outside the station with packs of thank-you cards that people could sign for state police officers. Martinez said the officers were justified in the way they handled Farrell. “For [people] to turn around and make [police] the enemies is ludicrous,” Martinez said. “I cannot believe how naïve society is.” State police will meet with some members of the community Friday to discuss the incident, but Kassetas said media will not be allowed at the meeting.

U.S. weighs cost of letting U.N. fears rise in sectarian violence in Iraq as deaths spike Afghanistan go its own way Uncertainty of deal poses threat as nation’s presidential election nears

By Kim Gamel and Sameer N. Yacoub

The Associated Press

BAGHDAD — An alarming number of Iraqis killed “execution-style” last month signaled an increase in targeted killings as the overall death toll in Iraq so far this year rose above 8,000, the U.N. said Sunday. The bodies, usually dumped on the street and mutilated, have heightened fears that the country is sliding back toward all-out warfare between Sunni and Shiite factions. Underscoring the dangers, three bombs tore through the funeral procession of the son of an anti-alQaida Sunni tribal chief northeast of Baghdad, the deadliest in a wave of attacks that killed 17 people Sunday, Iraqi officials said. Widespread chaos nearly tore the country apart following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein’s Sunni-dominated government. Extremists from both Islamic sects battled each other and American forces, killing tens of thousands. A series of U.S.-Iraqi military offensives, a Shiite militia cease-fire and a Sunni revolt against al-Qaida in Iraq helped tamp down the violence. Attacks, however, continued on a near-daily basis and political tensions remained high between Sunnis and the majority Shiites who consolidated their power after the American military withdrew in December 2011. The bloodshed accelerated sharply after a deadly April 23 crackdown by security forces on a northern Sunni protest camp, capping months of relatively peaceful demonstrations against alleged abuse at the hands of the Shiite-led government. Some Shiite leaders already have issued a call to arms, saying it is self-defense in the face of relentless bombings and shootings that have left thousands dead in Shiite areas this year. Mazin Sabeeh, a Sunni government employee from northern Baghdad, said he has started avoiding Shiite neighborhoods because he fears being captured and killed by militiamen. “Apparently, some people from the other sect are still determined to take revenge upon Sunnis,” he said. “With the current security vacuum and deterioration, they think it is the time to settle old scores.”

Qassim Haider, a Shiite owner of a menswear shop in eastern Baghdad, said he also has stopped accepting invitations to visit friends in mainly Sunni neighborhoods. “It seems that history is always repeating itself in Iraq,” he said. The death toll in Iraq dropped to at least 659 in November — including 565 civilians and 94 security forces, compared with 979 in October, according to the U.N. mission in Iraq. The U.N. also said 1,373 Iraqis were wounded in attacks last month, compared with 1,902 in October. Baghdad and surrounding areas saw the highest number killed last month, at 224, followed by the volatile northern Ninevah province, with 107. In all, at least 7,157 civilians and 952 Iraqi security forces have been killed since January, the U.N. said. U.N. envoy to Iraq Nickolay Mladenov singled out an increase in the number of bullet-riddled bodies found, including some that were beheaded, and urged the Iraqi government to move quickly to find the attackers and hold them responsible. Last week, Iraqi police found 31 bodies of men, women and children who were shot in the head in three separate places around Baghdad, recalling the height of sectarian violence in 2006-07 when extremists abducted and killed members of other religious groups, although the numbers remain significantly lower. “I am profoundly disturbed by the

recent surge in execution-style killings that have been carried out in a particularly horrendous and unspeakable manner,” Mladenov said. His spokeswoman, Eliana Nabaa, said the decline in the overall death toll was due to a shift in tactics, with insurgents increasingly turning to targeted killings and a reduction in the number of bombings. “Bombings tend to kill larger numbers at any one time, whereas targeted killings usually kill the target and on occasion one or two others, hence the decline in numbers of casualties and rise in targeted killings,” she said in an email. The deadliest attack Sunday, for example, was the triple bombing that killed 11 mourners and wounded 45 at a funeral for a local Sunni tribal sheik’s son who died a day earlier in Wajihiya, police said. A roadside bomb also hit a police patrol in Abu Ghraib, on the western outskirts of Baghdad, killing two officers and wounding three others, officials said. Members of both sects placed the primary blame on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government for failing to provide security and stability. “Al-Qaida and other terrorist groups are getting stronger while our security forces are getting weaker,” Shiite lawmaker Mushriq Naji said. “Al-Qaida is more easily able to pick the time, the place and the way to kill our people.”

Fuel boom key to U.S. superpower status? Shift in oil, gas production could Energy boom gives U.S. clout shale oil and gas bonanza gives the U.S. dominance reorder global winners and losers The in the global energy sector. By Tim Johnson

Why U.S. is ahead in shale revolution

Record oil production?

McClatchy Foreign Staff

MEXICO CITY or the past 40 years, U.S. presidents have launched distant wars, allied with autocratic sheiks and dispatched naval fleets to protect sea lanes, all for the imperative of keeping foreign oil spigots flowing. That imperative has now subsided. Rather suddenly, the center of gravity of global energy production has swung toward the Americas as shale oil and gas fields in North Dakota and Texas hum with activity. America is moving to the fore as the world’s largest producer of petroleum and natural gas. That change will reorder the globe in ways large and small. U.S. experts say it will prolong the United States’ position as the predominant global superpower. Arab nations that shook the world with the 1973 oil embargo almost certainly will be weakened. Russia will find its power ebb as European nations find alternate suppliers for natural gas. New energy technologies will reorder the scales of global winners and losers. “There are not many times in history where you can see the balance of power shift,” said David L. Goldwyn, founder of Goldwyn Global Strategies, an energy intelligence consultancy in Washington. “We are going to see that.” Coinciding with America’s shale oil boom, Goldwyn said, are cutting-edge technologies that allow new parts of the globe to tap into unconventional energy resources, including deep offshore natural gas beds. Places like Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean, Mozambique in Africa and Colombia in South America hold promise with energy reserves. “We’re really seeing the small ‘d’ democratization of access to energy in more countries and more places,” Goldwyn said.

F

Fracking & energy dominance There are skeptics, of course, whose doubts range from distrust of the geological forecasts to analysts who say an environmental disaster could derail the shale oil and gas boom, just as the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan sapped global enthusiasm for nuclear energy. “The implications of the U.S. shale revolution are so great for its economy and security that you don’t want to kill it with stupidity,” said Robert A.

tage of those deposits easily, certainly not with the explosive growth seen in the United States. Many factors give the United States a head start in exploiting energy locked in shale, including its access to cutting-edge technology and risk capital, clear private resource ownership and huge numbers of drilling rigs, most of them capable of the difficult horizontal drilling required in fracking. “I’m very skeptical about the ability of any other country to replicate the drilling intensity” of the United States, said Leonardo Maugeri, a former executive at the world’s sixth largest oil company, Italy-based Eni, who is at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Companies in the United States own nearly 60 percent of all active drilling rigs in the world, Maugeri said, a key condition for the continuous drilling needed for fracking. “Texas is the most drilled state in the world,” Maugeri said. “To give you an order of magnitude, the number of wells drilled in Texas compared to Saudi Arabia is 1,000 to one.” The ability of the United States to dominate the extraction of shale deposits at home raises another question, troubling to some: Will the United States become less interested in the global military role it plays now?

What about the military?

Manning of the Atlantic Council. As Asian populations rise and economies grow, nations there should be recruited to help patrol sea lanes, said Charles K. Ebinger, director of the Energy Security Initiative at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank. “I can envisage that as both India and China become maritime powers, that we have joint operations,” Ebinger said. Some experts argue that the United States should not disengage from the Persian Gulf because U.S. interests there go far beyond energy supplies. “The United States is so woven into the world economy that we need that energy flowing to Asia,” said Rachel Bronson, vice president of studies at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and an expert on U.S.-Saudi relations. The Paris-based International Energy Agency forecast in a report this month that rising global demand would allow the Middle East to recapture its role as a key source of oil by the mid2020s, primarily to meet surging demand in Asia. Most U.S. experts concur that a big loser from the growth of the U.S. shale industry will be Russia, which has locked in Eastern and Western Europe as clients for its natural gas, leveraging the reliance on its supplies for political gain. The Russian share of the European Union’s natural gas imports is expected to drop, however, from the current 34 percent to below 15 percent over the next 10 to 15 years, according to some analyses, replaced by supplies of liquefied natural gas from the United States. “Russia is in big, big trouble,” said Ebinger of Brookings, noting that Moscow is losing revenue by subsidizing domestic consumption even as natural gas prices are under assault, slowly decoupling from decades of linkage to crude oil prices. According to a June estimate by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, China has the world’s largest recoverable shale gas reserves, nearly double of those in the United States. Its shale oil reserves are the world’s third largest after Russia and the United States, the EIA said. But whether China will exploit those finds is uncertain. Chinese analysts have wrung their hands over the impact of the U.S. shale revolution, with one heavyweight pundit declaring that it will remold the world. Wu Sike, a senior statesman who used to be China’s envoy to the Middle East and is now member of a key foreign affairs committee, sees fracking as having “an insurmountable impact on the Middle East, the global economy and the world’s geopolitical map.” And the February Citigroup report, titled “Energy 2020: Independence Day,” put it this way: “The United States should see its role in the world as a singular superpower enhanced and prolonged.”

Tech gives new nations shot as energy producers By Tim Johnson

McClatchy Foreign Staff

MEXICO CITY — New technologies to unlock energy below the Earth’s surface could transform the global energy picture, allowing a handful of nations not ordinarily thought of as energy producers to emerge. That’s because shale formations holding natural gas and oil are more widely spread around the globe than traditional oil reservoirs, broadening access to energy. “Ten years from now, Poland will be a winner. Bulgaria could be a winner, Romania and Lithuania, too,” said David L. Goldwyn, founder of Goldwyn Global Strategies, an energy intelligence consultancy in Washington. Natural gas and oil lie under the eastern Mediterranean Sea, turning Cyprus, Israel, Lebanon and even the Gaza Strip into potential energy producers. Africa’s energy picture also is in flux. While big suppliers like Nigeria and Angola on Africa’s west coast reel from dropping

U.S. demand for their crude, Mozambique in East Africa is poised to tap into huge offshore natural gas reserves that could prove transformative. “Five years from now, they are going to be a major [liquid natural gas] export power to the Indian Ocean. Mozambique will be the hub of East African gas,” Goldwyn said, adding that neighboring Tanzania also will benefit from cheaper energy. “That whole region will see access to electricity, cheaper product prices … and they’ll have the opportunity for some terrific

prosperity,” Goldwyn said. In Latin America, Argentina has the world’s second largest shale gas reserves. But Argentina will have trouble raising the tens of billions of dollars it needs to invest following its 2001 default on the financial markets. Other obstacles can arise. Entrenched nationalism in Mexico means most production is in the hands of the state giant, Petroleos Mexicanos, which has limited capital and experience to tap into the world’s sixth largest shale gas reserves. Mexico’s Congress is in the final weeks

of debating a proposal to open up the energy sector to foreign investment in risk-sharing contracts that could spur exploration and production in deep Gulf of Mexico waters and in shale formations near the border with Texas. Even factors like lack of water and poor roads can hinder development. While some nations stumble in unleashing their potential, others don’t. Colombia, for instance, has sharply reversed its fortunes, opening the door to new companies.

EL NUEVO MEXICANO Grama Cuca ‘explica’ Guadalupe

De Tom Sharpe

The New Mexican

S

agemaya Dandi y Butterball están de regreso pero pueden irse en cualquier momento. Por 31 años, Dandi ha sido paracaidista en Santa Fe, en el área cerca del Bosque Nacional, en un sendero rugoso al sur de Upper Canyon Road. Dormía en un pequeño cobertizo con una estufa de leña, rodeado de montones de basura y una letrina circular que según dice aleja a los osos. Cuando los incendios forestales amenazaban, las autoridades discrepaban con Dandi sobre su manera inusual de vivir y llegaba a The New Mexican para dar a conocer su posición. “No tengo acaso derecho de tener un hábitat como lo tiene el famoso búho moteado”, preguntaba. Aparentemente, a pesar de ser un refunfuñón o quizá por eso mismo, Dandi se ha convertido en uno de los personajes más conocidos en Santa Fe. Nacido en Elmhurst, Ill., creció en Florida y Carolina del Norte, vivió en Nashville y llegó a Santa Fe en 1981 y comenzó a vivir en el bosque al siguiente año. Antes fue un ávido ciclista, pero después de varios accidentes, lo dejó por completo. No maneja tampoco. Se considera un trabajador independiente sin pago, un activista de ciclistas y peatones. Hace una docena de años, alguien le dio a Butterball, ahora 15 años y medio, una hembra mansa de la mezcla de razas pastor-pit bull que es un perro de apoyo, de acuerdo a una carta del sicólogo de Santa Fe, Elliot Rappaport, quien dice que Butterball brinda “asistencia emocional, física y sicológica al Sr. Dandi”. Dandi, 69, recientemente fue diagnosticado con una falla en el corazón y debe permanecer temporadas largas a nivel del mar. Así que en agosto, él y Butterball volaron a Seattle. De ahí, lograron llegar hasta la ciudad de Port Townsend, Wash. en la Península Olímpica. Diez semanas más tarde, regresaron. Cuando Dandi se presentó en mi oficina, parecía renuente a contar el por qué de su regreso, así que le pregunté si tuvo problemas volando con Butterball. La ley federal que permite que perros de apoyo viajen gratis en el asiento del pasajero ha estado en las noticias últimamente. Pero Dandi, que dice que es ilegal el preguntar a alguien porque tiene un perro de apoyo, hizo a un lado mi pregunta diciendo, “No deberías preguntar jamás eso porque entonces no entiendes nada del asunto”. Más tarde, explicó como Butterball y él pasaron al frente del avión, donde había espacio para que el perro se acurrucara en el piso. Dandi me dijo su nombre real, pero me pidió no publicarlo. “Mi padre era un tirano y yo fui un niño abusado”, dice. “Se sentaba a la mesa y limpiaba su garganta, luego me criticaba, hubo un punto en que no podía estar cerca de él. Ya había elegido su nombre cuando supo por la película Gandhi en 1982 que Dandi era la aldea costera donde el líder independiente de la India protestó contra el impuesto británico en la sal en 1930. “Cuando lo vi, se me puso la piel de gallina”, dice. “No estás solo. Hay alguien que está dirigiendo tu vida. Por eso me dijo vete de Santa Fe a Port Townsend”. ¿Me dijo? “La fuerza espiritual”, dice. Port Townsend, población de 9,000, fue una sorpresa. El tráfico era peor que en Santa Fe. La gente era más disimulada al permitir que sus perros pasearan sin correa y atacaran a Butterball. A diferencia de Santa Fe, no hay refugios para personas sin hogar, así que Dandi y Butterball dormían afuera, refugiándose donde podían al caer los aguaceros. Por otro lado, el transporte público era bueno, la clínica de asistencia médica gratuita era de primera clase y los policías eran educados. Una vez en Santa Fe, alguien había tomado el lugar de Dandi, así que a su regreso, se quedó en el refugio St. Elizabeth, hasta que estuvo en desacu-

De vuelta en Santa Fe, por ahora erdo con su toque de queda. Quería asistir a la hora de peticiones del Concejo de la Ciudad de Santa Fe el 13 de noviembre para explicar la comparación entre Santa Fe y Port Townsend. Dijo que si salía después de las 5 p.m., su cama sería asignada a alguien más, aún así Dandi fue para hablar sobre cómo el toque de queda infringía sus derechos constitucionales. El gestor de la ciudad envió a un policía con Dandi y Butterball a St. Elizabeth para recoger sus pertenencias, de ahí los llevó al refugio Interfaith Community Shelter. Pero al poco tiempo tuvo problemas. El 24 de noviembre, el día después de la tormenta de nieve, llamó para decir que había sido echado por los “autoritarios” que dirigen el refugio.

After grating potatoes, put them in bowl and squeeze in a little lemon juice to keep them from turning brown. Add the eggs, flour or matzo meal, onion, salt and baking soda, and mix until well combined. Heat about a ½ inch of oil in a large frying pan. For each latke, drop about a ¼ cup of the mixture into the hot oil, and cook until it’s golden brown on each side. Fry a few at a time, but don’t crowd the pan. Drain the latkes on paper towels, and keep them warm in the oven while making the others. Stir the potato mixture well before making the next batch. The latkes can be served with apple sauce and sour cream.

For one Santa Fe chef, Hanukkah is a time for family and food

s the sun sets behind the Sandia Mountains on Saturday, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah will commence. All over the world, families of the Jewish faith will begin to kindle their menorahs to celebrate religious freedom and the miracle of oil. Ever since the second century B.C. — when the Maccabees used a single vial of oil to light their sacred temple for eight days after reclaiming Jerusalem from King Antiochus IV of Syria — oil has played a significant role in the Festival of Lights. Today, many in the Jewish faith use oil as a food medium to remember the story of Hanukkah, and their traditional holiday meals often include potato latkes, various types of sufganiyots, jelly-filled doughnuts, and buñuelos or fritters — all of which are fried in oil. In Santa Fe, one chef in particular has embraced the traditions of Hanukkah for nearly two decades. As a child, however, chef Martín Rios had never heard of the celebrated Jewish holiday. Yet, Judaism has become an integral part of his life. Rios, who was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and raised in Santa Fe from age 14 as a Catholic, had never met a Jewish person until he met his wife, Jennifer. “When I was the executive chef of The Old House at the Eldorado Hotel, my boss introduced me to Jennifer, who came in to do an apprenticeship in hotel management for her MBA from Georgetown University,” said Rios, who owns Restaurant Martín on Galisteo Street. Soon after meeting on that summer day in 1993, a friendship sparked between the pair, and eventually, a romance blossomed. The two spent the rest of the summer together, sharing secrets, thoughts and beliefs. For Jennifer, that meant telling Rios about her Jewish upbringing and how her faith plays a significant role in her life. Rios said he admired her strong sense of faith. “Judaism has always been a strong part of my identity,” Jennifer Rios said. “It has been the one constant in my life, the common theme and my comfort place.”

El 26 de noviembre, vino de paso para decir que alguien había metido al refugio un cuchillo de contrabando y que temía por su vida. Dandi está pensando en irse a Tucson, Ariz., o Corpus Christi, Texas después. “Me estoy frustrando aquí”, me dijo. “Tengo que decidir a donde me guía el espíritu o a dónde quiere que vaya. Yo sé que no quiere que viva en una casa”. Traducción de Patricia De Dios para The New Mexican.

na noche cuando Grama Cuca y Canutito were sitting at la mesa, she decided de enseñarle all about Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. She said, “M’hijo have you seen la imagen de Guadalupe that is en la iglesia?” “Sí, grama,” Canutito said. “She is the Mother of God standing en la banana with an angel there to keep her de haciendo slip on it.” “¡No!” Grama Cuca shrieked. “Ella no está standing en una banana. It is la luna creciente que está at her feet.” “Entonces why does Guadalupe Larry Torres have prickly Growing up espinas all spanglish around de su cuerpo como un porcupine, grama?” Canutito asked inocentemente. “¡Ay, Dios mío!” Grama Cuca exclamó. “Those are not espinas en el cuerpo de la Virgencita. They are los rayos del sol que she is standing in front of.” “Entonces,” continuó Canutito, “Is she stepping on el little angel in order to keep him from flying away?” “No,” said Grama Cuca pacientemente. “El angelito es un serafín; that means, que he is un Seraph angel que la hace carry around de place to place. “Haven’t you ever noticed, m’hijo,” said grama, “que she is standing en frente del sol, con la luna a sus pies y que her manto is made de las estrellas del cielo?” “Well, I knew que her mantle tenía stars all over it pero I thought que eso era porque she was una superstar como ‘Madonna’.” “I’ll tell you, m’hijo,” grama replied, “Our Lady of Guadalupe was the original Madonna superstar.” “¿Por qué is it que los Mexicanos honor her so much, grama?” Canutito questioned. “Es porque ella es una India Mexicana just like them. She gave unas rosas to el Indio Juan Diego en el middle of winter y eso hizo convince al Arzobispo de México que she was la Madre de Dios.” “Pero cómo hizo create las rosas en el medio de winter, grama?” Canutito asked her. “She didn’t create them, m’hijo,” Grama Cuca said. “Ella no es una goddess. Dios created them. Guadalupe nomás era la messenger de Dios. Por eso she has her ojos lowered down instead de mirar straight ahead.” “And qué era el miracle de las rosas, grama?” Canutito asked. “Cuando el Indio Juan Diego took las rosas al Archbishop de Mexico, todas las flores had formed la imagen de Guadalupe on the material de la cloak del Indio. That’s cuando el Arzobispo came to believe and Juan Diego’s tilma con the Virgen on it is now hanging en la catedral de México.” Just then Grampo Caralampio came walking into la cocina a ver what grama and Canutito were discutiendo. “Have you ever seen a la Virgen de Guadalupe toda saggy y con una white beard?” grampo asked the little boy. “No!” Canutito exclaimed. “Dónde have you seen a la Virgen all arrugada with a barba blanca, grampo?” “Yes, viejo,” added Grama Cuca. “Where have you seen such a cosa ridícula as that?” “When mi amigo, Pancracio era young,” grampo said, “he had a la Virgen de Guadalupe tattooed en su muscular chest. Pero as he grew más viejo, la face de la Virgin began to sag y Pancracio sprouted pelo blanco right under el chin de Santa María. It was the scariest imagen de Guadalupe ever seen por toda la gente who would see him without su camisa on.” “Especially if they saw it en la cantina,” grama added …

Season’s top wireless audio gizmos for less than $500

Tangle-free holiday

By Ryan Nakashima The Associated Press

L

OS ANGELES — If “unplugged” acoustic music was a hallmark of the ’90s, surely “wireless” listening is the big trend of the ’10s. Sure, we’ve been essentially wireless since the radio came out a century ago. But today’s Internetconnected mobile devices often require cords to hook up to accessories like speakers and headphones. And these cords can result in a knotty nightmare in your bag. Several wireless gadgets I tried out recently should keep music lovers a bit more tangle-free this holiday season.

Beats Studio Wireless ($380) This plush set of over-ear headphones almost mirrors Beats’ popular Studio line, but comes with wireless ability for an $80 increase in price. Like the wired-only model, this puts you in a cocoon with its noise-canceling technology, which works even if you just want padded silence. The sound is crisp, and the bass is deep. A button on the outside of the left ear cup operates like the button on standard iPhone earbuds: one click to pause, two to skip forward and so on. A discshaped button turns the volume up and down. The headphones promise 12 hours of wireless listening and 20 hours if you connect the cord, which is included. Nearly $400 for headphones is pricey, but whoever gets this as a holiday gift will be mightily pleased. It’s an outstanding way to bliss out during a noisy commute. It works as a headset for phone calls, too.

HMDX Jam Plus ($60 each) These stubby speakers the size of a tumbler glass are perfect companions to a laptop or tablet. Pairing two of them for stereo sound was a snap thanks to a switch on the bottom that designates which one is right and left. The speakers have comically short USB cables for charging, no longer than a foot. Provided you have USB ports on both sides of a laptop, insert one on either side for stereo sound. Mind you, the USB port doesn’t act as an audio connection if your device isn’t Bluetooth-ready. Unplugged, they should give you six hours of listening. The fact that the speakers point straight up isn’t a deal breaker somehow, as the sound is dispersed well. For the price, a pair of these would make a nice stocking stuffer for any gadget lover.

Monster iSport Freedom ($250) Meant for a workout, these on-ear headphones are made of sweat-resistant plastic and rubbery material and will give you a tight-fitting hug. Although the headphones didn’t jostle while jogging, there’s something about completely covering your ears that creates a kind of bone-conducing sound. Every foot strike resulted in a thud inside my head, something that doesn’t happen with $29 iPhone EarPods. In addition, on-ear headphones squish your ears against your frames if you are wearing glasses. Separate buttons for volume up, down and skipping forward and back were difficult to use, partly because I often hit a much larger button for pause and play instead. That said, the sound is excellent, and I appreciate not having to worry about yanking my headphones off accidentally by snagging the cord. With 10 hours of playback time per charge, these should outlast all but the most enduring athletes.

Sonos Play:1 ($200 each) The little brother to the company’s Play:3 and Play:5 speakers packs a big, immersive sound in a package the size of a pickle jar. Unlike Bluetooth speakers, Sonos speakers run over Wi-Fi and need to be plugged into a power outlet. Through the end of the year, the company is throwing in, for no extra charge, a $50 Bridge adapter to attach to your router, so you can free yourself from having to plug an Ethernet cable into at least one speaker. You can play digital tunes that you own or use streaming services such as Pandora and Rdio. I found Sonos’ Wi-Fi connection to be far more consistent than using other speakers with Bluetooth, which can cause skips now and then. The speakers are designed to disperse sound in a wide radius and fill a room. When two little Play:1s are paired for stereo sound, they deliver big time.

China claims victory in scrubbing Internet clean BEIJING — The Chinese government has declared victory in cleaning up what it considers rumors, negativity and unruliness from online discourse, while critics say the moves have suppressed criticism of the government and ruling Communist Party. Beijing launched the campaign this summer, arresting dozens of people for spreading rumors, creating new penalties for people who post libelous information and calling in the country’s top bloggers for talks urging them to

Marley Get Together ($200) This is what you want when you go on a picnic with your hippie friends. It’s even made of hemp. No kidding: The cloth enclosure is made of recycled hemp, organic cotton and recycled plastic. Its natural bamboo front gives this an Earth-loving, yet luxurious polish. Two big woofers and two tweeters on the front will reassure you that you’re not compromising on sound. Playing Bob Marley over Bluetooth on this modernday boom box just seems right. It has eight hours of battery life. And I’m sure if the Rasta master were alive today, even he would appreciate the USB port on the back that can be used for charging mobile devices.

guard the national interest and uphold social order. At the same time, government agencies at all levels have boosted their online presence to control the message in cyberspace. “If we should describe the online environment in the past as good mingling with the bad, the sky of the cyberspace has cleared up now because we have cracked down on online rumors,” Ren Xianliang, vice minister of the State Internet Information Office, said during a rare meeting this week with foreign journalists. A study by an Internet opinion monitoring service under the party-owned People’s Daily newspaper showed the number of posts by a sample of 100 opinion leaders declined

10 titles for every gamer on your list

Beats Pill 2.0 ($200)

The Associated Press

This Tylenol-shaped beat box puts out a decent sound, but to me, it’s remarkably tiny for the Beats brand. This year’s model, however, adds some cool features. A near-field communications chip lets you pair two Pills together for stereo sound. If you are on the road, you can lift a tab to reveal a full USB port, which you can use to charge your mobile phone if you don’t mind giving up some of its seven-hour playback time. On a full charge, it can replace twothirds of an iPhone 5S battery. But the Pill is indeed round and will roll. One rolled off a shelf on me and dropped three feet onto the floor. It didn’t miss a beat or get dented, but I wouldn’t recommend trying it at home.

A video game store can be daunting if you don’t know what you’re looking for. It’s not easy to tell the winners from the losers, and sales clerks typically make the same salary whether they sell you a gem or a stinker. (Farming Simulator, anyone?) So when you head to the mall, take this list. These are some of the best games of 2013, and any gamer on your holiday shopping list will be thrilled to see one of them under the tree. Two important things to keep in mind: u Know what kind of game console the gift recipient owns. Maybe Santa’s delivering a PlayStation 4? Make sure the game you buy says “PS4” on the box. Sony’s PlayStation 4 won’t play PlayStation 3 games, and if you stick an Xbox or Wii disc into it, you’re just asking for trouble. Likewise, the new Xbox One from Microsoft won’t play games for the older Xbox 360 console. However, last year’s Wii U from Nintendo can play games made for its predecessor, the Wii. u Games that have an “M” rating (for Mature) are not appropriate for kids. They are violent, probably include some rough language and may flash some bare skin every now and then. Games labeled “E” (Everyone) and “E10+” (Everyone 10 and older) are fun for the whole family — even the grown-ups.

For adults

Soundcast Melody ($450) This Bluetooth speaker flips the idea of surround sound on its head. A speaker grill encircles a body that is shaped like a rice cooker. You can surround it from any direction and still feel the sound coming your way. This chunky, 9-pound speaker is for people who want mobility from a speaker system, but for whom weight is no issue. With a full charge, it’ll play up to 20 hours at low volume or two hours if you’re blasting it. At this price, it’s pushing the upper end of wireless speakers. But it’s an attractive travel companion with its four speaker sets pointing in all directions, quality sound, lengthy battery life and car-lighter charger attachment.

by nearly 25 percent and were overtaken by posts from government microblog accounts. “The positive force on the Internet has preliminarily taken back the microphone, and the positive energy has overwhelmed the negative energy to uphold the online justice,” said Zhu Huaxin, the monitoring service’s general secretary, according to state media. Observers say the crackdown has noticeably curtailed speech by suppressing voices and triggering self-censorship, with more liberal online voices being more ginger in their criticism and posting significantly less.

u Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (Ubisoft, for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, $59.99): Jack Sparrow’s got nothing on Edward Kenway, the swashbuckling hero of this pirate romp. There are treasures buried everywhere in this version of the 18th century New World, but the real prize is the rousing ship-to-ship combat across a churning Caribbean. u Need for Speed: Rivals (Electronic Arts, for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, $59.99): The latest edition of EA’s street-racing franchise is packed with enough high-octane challenges to satisfy the most demanding speed freak. But the chases really get chaotic once the police get involved. And because even the cops drive Ferraris, they’re thrilling no matter which side of the law you’re on. u Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar, for the PS3, Xbox 360, $59.99): A gangbanger, a former bank robber and a psychopath cross paths in the new chapter of the blockbuster crime series. It’s vicious, profane and thoroughly entertaining, as the three hoodlums bounce from one ridiculous situation to another in a stylized, ultraviolent nightmare version of Los Angeles. u The Last of Us (Sony, for the PS3, $59.99): Twenty years after an infection decimated American society, a jaded survivor and a teenage girl set out on a crosscountry journey. Their battles against mutants and other humans are nerve-racking, but the most memorable element of “The Last of Us” is the growing affection between its protagonists. u BioShock Infinite (2K Games, for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, $39.99): A detective explores a city floating high above the clouds in this dark satire of American “exceptionalism,” the idea that the United States is inherently superior to other countries. Months after its release, players are still arguing over the meaning of its time-bending, brain-twisting plot — and marveling over its gorgeous setting and unforgettable monsters.

For everyone u Skylanders Swap Force (Activision, for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, $74.99): The Skylanders franchise, which combines collectible figurines with video games, is satisfying on both fronts. The toys are durable and attractive, while the games are clever and packed with a wide variety of activity.

It has more than 100 levels to explore. Each one feels fresh and inventive. u Super Mario 3D World (Nintendo, for the Wii U, $59.99): The beloved plumber and his pals Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad explore a sprawling environment jammed with running and jumping challenges. The major upgrade, a cat suit that lets characters crawl up walls, is essential to finding all the secret goodies hidden in the world’s nooks and crannies. u The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Nintendo, for the Nintendo 3DS, $39.99): Link, the hero of the long-running “Zelda” series, can now flatten himself down to two dimensions. Sounds useless, but it opens up a whole range of clever spatial puzzles and elevates the 3D capabilities of Nintendo’s handheld beyond mere gimmickry. u Tearaway (Sony, for the PlayStation Vita, $39.99): The new game from the studio behind LittleBigPlanet takes full advantage of the hand-held Vita. You can help characters by drawing objects on the front screen. You can tap on the back of the Vita to poke holes in the papercraft settings.

FAMILY Playground fun brings fitness results By Nancy Churnin

Dr. Ken Adams gets a good workout playing with his daughters Isabelle, left, and Katherine at White Rock Lake’s playground in Dallas.

The Dallas Morning News

DALLAS r. Ken Adams does not let parenting get in the way of his exercise. In fact, he says his three girls, who are 10, 7 and 3, make it easier than ever for him to exercise because it’s part of their playtime together. “I love going out and jumping with my kids on the trampoline,” says Adams, 41, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and associate clinical professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas. (He also serves as one of the team physicians for the U.S. Olympic cycling team.) “If we jump 15 to 20 minutes five times a week, I’m having a hard workout, and they’re having a blast while we’re laughing and talking.” Most healthy adults should get at least 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity or 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week, with strength training exercises at least twice a week, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Adams says he exceeds those recommendations just by biking with the kids to school in the morning and later to the playground, where he’s usually the only parent not sitting on the bench, texting on a cellphone. “I kind of feel like the older I get, the younger I feel. I love hanging out with my

kids and playing with them,” he says. “I don’t think about it in terms of reminding me of my childhood. I do it because it’s part of who I am and what I do.” With the precaution that you should check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program, particularly if you’ve been sedentary, Adams outlines some of the physical benefits you can get from playing like a kid: Swings: Pumping your legs to swing high targets your quadriceps and hamstrings, which are at the front and back of your thighs. The harder you pump, the higher you swing and the more intense your workout becomes. If you push your child on the swing, you will work your triceps. Slides: Climbing the steps is good for your quadriceps, hamstrings and buttocks. Sliding down should lift your spirits, which

boosts your energy. If you want to catch your child at the bottom, you can try lifting the child overhead for an upper-body workout, but only after bending at the knees to protect your back. Monkey bars: Swinging from bar to bar works your upper body. Climbing up and down the bars exercises your arms and legs at the same time. Hanging from a bar stretches your whole body. If you can do a chin-up, that will strengthen your arms, back and shoulders. Seesaw: This is great for strength-training. Every time you land, the impact helps keep your bones strong. Pushing off to go back up works your legs and buttocks. Trampoline: Jumping provides a strong cardiovascular workout while building leg and core strength and improved balance and coordination.

Parent can’t be agent of change for all of a child’s problems Question: My 11-year-old son cuts corners on everything. If he does a chore, he’ll leave the cleaning products behind. If his bed his hard to make, he hides the sheet in the closet and throws the blanket over the bed. Concerning his schoolwork, he doesn’t bother studying for tests (figuring he gets A’s anyway). We’re now seeing this in his soccer practices, where he’s started literally cutting corners. How can we get a handle on this bad habit? Answer: Because it’s not “blatant,” as in blatant disrespect or disobedience, this sort of problem can be difficult to get a handle on. Today’s parents believe in “parenting technology” — that for every John behavior problem, there’s a solution. The Rosemond fact is that parents cannot solve all of the Living With possible problems a child may develop. Children They can’t solve any of those problems, in fact. It doesn’t matter what the problem is, parents can only put pressure, in the form of consequences of one sort or another, on a child in hope that the pressure will motivate the child to solve it. Some children give in to the pressure, some don’t. Sometimes, a child doesn’t solve a problem until he’s in a state of crisis because of it, and the crisis in question may not occur until he’s well into adulthood. When parents use consequences with the mistaken belief that there is a magic consequence that will solve the problem in question, they miss the point and are possibly setting themselves up to fail. The purpose of consequences is simply to demonstrate that in the real world, “bad” behavior causes bad things to happen, sooner or later. Hopefully, the child will “get it,” and solve the problem. If, however, the child doesn’t solve the problem, that doesn’t necessarily mean the consequence was not the right one to use. That belief often causes parents to try one consequence after another in a rather chaotic attempt to find the one that will turn the proverbial wheel. Perhaps the consequence in question was insufficient — it didn’t apply enough pressure. On the other hand, it may well be that the consequence was sufficient, but the child wasn’t “ready.” Having delivered the necessary disclaimer, my recommendation is that you focus on one problem area and one only. Don’t bite off more than you can chew by attempting to solve the chore, school and soccer problems in one fell swoop. Start with chores. Make a list of the specific things he does to cut corners where chores are concerned. Suspend a privilege or package of privileges until he’s solved the “cutting corners when he does chores” problem and has had no relapses for a month. Mind you, his “rehabilitation” may take four weeks; then again, it may take four months or four years. Be ready to hang in there and continue imposing the consequence(s) until he gets it. And be ready to accept that you are not the appointed agents of change concerning this problem. The appointed agent of change may not enter his life until he’s 45 years old. We’ve all seen that happen, haven’t we? Here’s what I call the “Hang in There Principle”: If a child does wrong things, and the child’s parents do right things, and the child keeps on doing wrong things, then the child’s parents should simply keep on doing the right things.

Taos Pueblo man killed on tribal land Suits challenge Texas The Taos News

Jorden Medina, Jr., 54, of Taos was arrested in connection with the Saturday night death of Taos Pueblo tribal member Nicholas Concha, 28, according to information from the FBI. A news release said Concha was found dead Saturday night outside the Allsup’s Conve-

nience Store on Paseo del Pueblo Norte in Taos. Concha had a gunshot wound to the head, the release stated. Medina is expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on Monda, according to the release. The exact charges were not included in the release. Court records related to the case were not

available Sunday afternoon. The release said the FBI, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Taos Pueblo Department of Public Safety and the Taos Police Department are investigating the incident, and no further details will be released until after Medina’s court appearance. The FBI is involved with the

investigation because the incident took place on tribal land. Taos Pueblo Department of Public Safety Chief Gary Lefthand confirmed that the victim of the shooting was a Taos Pueblo tribal member. Lefthand did not provide additional information about the circumstances of the incident.

ban on gay marriage

By Chris Tomlinson The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — One couple want to get married, while the other just want theirs recognized. A third couple want a divorce, while the fourth want theirs finalized. If all win their lawsuits, they could overturn the Texas ban on same-sex marriage. A federal court in San Antonio, Texas, will hear arguments next month from the attorneys representing the couples who want to live lawfully wedded. The Texas Supreme Court is considering the cases of the couples who want their out-of-state marriages legally dissolved. They are challenging a constitutional ban on gay and lesbian marriages approved by 1.7 million Texas voters in 2005. At the time, only Massachusetts allowed gay marriage, and conservatives hoped to pass a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Eight years later, 16 states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriages, and New Mexico is allowing marriages pending a decision by that state’s Supreme Court later this year. The U.S. Supreme Court has also struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, saying federal authorities cannot deny the rights of couples legally married under state law. That led to the first encroachment on Texas law, when the Texas National Guard agreed last week to begin processing applications for military benefits filed by same-sex couples. Initially, the guard told service members to apply for benefits at federal facilities because Texas law banned them from recognizing same-sex marriages. The guard’s reversal came after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said he would not tolerate state-employed officials refusing to treat all members of the military equally. Meanwhile, Attorney General Greg Abbott must still issue a legal opinion on whether the Texas National Guard is violating the state constitution by following the Pentagon’s orders. Abbott, who is the leading Republican candidate for governor, intervened to stop a

court from granting a divorce to a Dallas couple in 2009 and appealed an Austin judge’s decision to grant a same-sex divorce in 2011. The Texas Supreme Court heard arguments in a combined case on Nov. 5 and a decision is pending. Courts are considering similar cases in Mississippi and Kentucky, while the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled same-sex divorces were allowed even though the state bans such marriages. The two Texas couples suing to overturn the state constitutional amendment have filed their case in federal court in San Antonio. They claim Texas is denying them their constitutional rights by either refusing to let them get married, or to recognize their marriage from another state. Abbott has promised to defend the Texas law, as he would any other state law. But in a legal opinion declaring domestic partner benefits unconstitutional in April, he acknowledged that U.S. Supreme Court decisions on same-sex marriages could overturn Texas’ constitutional provision. The U.S. Supreme Court has taken tiny steps in its same-sex marriage decisions, recognizing that the majority of states still outlaw the practice, 29 through constitutional amendments and four through state law. That leaves lower courts without clear guidance on how to proceed, and raises the potential for different judges reach different conclusions. Also, if one more state legalizes same-sex marriage, it becomes almost impossible to pass a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. At that point, the U.S. Supreme Court may feel free to sort out whether one state can deny the legality of a marriage performed in another. Justices in the past have frowned on citizens having different civil rights in different states. Meanwhile, gay rights advocates are mobilizing campaigns in Oregon, Ohio, Michigan, Colorado and Nevada to expand same-sex marriage. No such campaign is planned for Texas, a Republican-controlled state known for Christian conservatism.

COMMENTARY: RASHSAD ROBINSON

Wal-Mart’s exploitation gets notice

A

sign posted near several plastic containers at a Wal-Mart in Ohio said it all: “Please donate food items so associates in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.” News of the in-store food donation efforts sent shockwaves across the country, once again shining a light on Wal-Mart’s hypocrisy: How can a company that raked in $15.7 billion in profits last year alone keep its workforce in poverty wages, relying on each other to literally put food on the table? Wal-Mart’s exploitation of its workers is finally getting the attention it deserves. Massive strikes and demonstrations planned for Black Friday brought attention to the company’s policies. And the National Labor Relations Board recently announced it will prosecute Wal-Mart for violating workers’ rights by threatening, disciplining and firing employees who went on strike or attempted to unionize. As an industry leader, Wal-Mart sets the pace for its competitors. Forcing the company to change its unjust policies will impact workers everywhere. On Black Friday, while the company’s workers toil long hours for meager wages, under the constant threat of retaliation for demanding something better for themselves and their families, Wal-Mart was lining its pockets once again. And ColorOfChange.org asks you, the reader, to join a chorus of voices demanding that Wal-Mart treat its workers with dignity and respect, and stop exploiting our financial troubles for its own gain. The economic downturn has forced millions of Americans into low-wage retail jobs like those at Wal-Mart. Today, the company employs nearly 1.4 million workers and is the largest private-sector employer of African Americans in the United States. WalMart’s massive share of the American workforce makes

OUR VIEW

Overactive police hurting N.M. image

the company’s deplorable treatment of workers all the more infuriating. Low wages, unfair scheduling, wage theft and worker retaliation are all hallmarks of a Wal-Mart associate’s working life with the corporation. Wal-Mart would rather launch food drives for associates to feed each other than simply pay them a living wage. Though recent strikes in Dallas, Chicago, Miami and Southern California made headlines, Wal-Mart seems used to the outrage surrounding its policies. Confronted about recent protests outside of one of the Los Angeles locations, a spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times that “Wal-Mart has seen such protests ‘over and over’ again” — a breathtakingly arrogant response from a company that also boasts the largest number of employees on government assistance. Wal-Mart has a history of retaliation against workers who stand up and demand better conditions. But intimidation tactics haven’t stopped brave workers like Colby Harris from speaking out. A former Wal-Mart employee and OUR Walmart (Organization United for Respect at

Walmart) organizer, Harris is just one of hundreds of WalMart associates who reported retaliatory harassment from the company. Earlier this year, he told The Nation, “They said that anybody who associates themselves with OUR Walmart, and the leaders, and the organization as a whole, could face disciplinary actions.” He has since been fired from Wal-Mart. Beyond intimidation tactics, Wal-Mart is infamous for wages so low that employees are eligible for taxpayerfunded programs. It’s a lucrative scheme in which employees are perpetually on the brink of financial ruin. All the while, America foots the bill. According to a recent report, one 300-person Wal-Mart store could come at a cost of $900,000 to $1.7 million per year to federal taxpayers through Medicaid, housing assistance, low-income tax credits and deductions, free and reduced lunches for children of employees and low-income energy assistance. Considering the size of WalMart’s U.S. workforce, taxpayers are paying more than $1.5 billion to subsidize its profits.

Clearly, every day is Black Friday for Wal-Mart. The company makes a killing all year, keeping its workers financially insecure and beholden to our social-safety net. Fifty years after Americans came to Washington to march for jobs, thousands of brave workers are taking action, launching Black Friday strikes across the country, demanding dignity, justice and respect. Wal-Mart must be held accountable for its exploitation of American workers and for the dangerous game it plays with our democracy. A social-safety net is important, but it should be there to help people, not subsidize a corporation that lines its pockets by keeping workers in poverty. By supporting Wal-Mart workers in the fight for good jobs and a decent working environment, we can help raise the standard for the entire retail industry, and show Wal-Mart executives that there’s a price to pay for exploiting its workforce.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Government transparency lacking

E

veryone should read James McGrath Morris’ (My View, “Government secrecy eviscerates history,” Nov. 24) item about the current government’s excessive secrecy, and shudder. Judicial Watch, a conservative, nonpartisan organization, strives to promote accountability in government by bringing suit against the government when, in its view, the rule of law is attacked. Judicial Watch confirms Morris’ complaint that the government will stonewall legitimate efforts to provide requested documents, possibly in hopes the petitioner will give up. In its most recent newsletter, a partial list of active Judicial Watch suits numbered 50 lawsuits and 43 requests for documents under the Freedom of Information

Act. Judicial Watch addresses such serious issues as Eric Holder’s alleged illegal activities, Benghazi attack, corruption of federal elections, “Obamacare,” illegal immigration and the IRS, to name a few of the most important charges. Obama’s canned email reply reads: “The president has promised the most transparent administration in history.” Mr. Morris has discovered otherwise. Margaret Sears

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Dec. 2, 1913: PHOENIX — All indictments pending in the United States District Court here against the firms of El Paso, Texas, and Tucson, and Douglas, Ariz., arrested on charges of smuggling arms to the Mexican revolutionists, were dismissed today by Judge W.N. Sawtelle,

who sustained the demurrer. There remain, however, several indictments charging conspiracy to smuggle war material across the international boundary.

Now, certain steamers make the direct voyage and Hindus are entering the province in large numbers.

now has fallen on New Mexico’s majestic mountains, and the ski season is off and running to its earliest start in a decade. This has not escaped the New Mexico Tourism Department, which will spend $800,000 on a winter push for its “New Mexico True” marketing campaign, featuring the state’s outdoor and recreational assets. It will target Dallas-Fort Worth and Phoenix, and will place ads in the Southwest Airlines in-flight magazine. This is on top of the $2.5 million spent on the yearlong effort to raise awareness of the state in Chicago, Arizona, Utah and Colorado with airport call boards, media advertising and interviews. Local communities also are partnering to up their exposure, which is bringing more visitors to places such as Las Cruces, Roswell and Aztec. The efforts are long overdue, and we have been supportive of better marketing New Mexico — especially the diverse cultures and outdoor scenery that thrives here and no place else. But there is undertow working against New Mexico’s image: excessive policing. National media — print, broadcast and online sites — have focused on recent disturbing cases that might give pause to visitors, especially those venturing to rural areas. One involved a man who rolled through a traffic stop in Deming and was subjected to a search at a hospital of his anal cavity — there are some 25,000 Google hits on various versions of this story alone. Another involved a Memphis, Tenn., woman and her children who had a verbal altercation with New Mexico State Police near Taos. Shots ended up being fired at the minivan tires — with children inside. This news item led network news and talk shows on national broadcast networks. Closer to home, a Santa Fe woman was shot and killed after a traffic stop went awry earlier this month. This week, there was news of a lawsuit from a case two years ago by a woman strip-searched at a detention center — an officer sprayed mace on her vagina. That suit also is gaining national notice. On Nov. 27, KOAT-TV reported still another lawsuit from a September traffic stop in Lincoln County, where the driver, Dr. Ray Seidel, felt threatened. “I’m sitting there looking at a 9 mm pointing at me. … I just knew he was ready to pull the trigger,” Seidel told KOAT news. New Mexico is getting a black eye across the nation. Already, there are posts on sites as Craigslist. “New Mexico man gets cavity search over stop sign” and “Visit Canceled” from a person who writes in the rants and raves forum: “Was planning on vising after leaving Colorado, but forget it! Police State.” Lovers of New Mexico can’t change the opinions or behaviors of others. But as we take visitors around to enjoy the Valles Caldera, ski areas, pueblos dances and tapas restaurants, we can remind friends that New Mexico has a long and tolerant history of outsiders. There are many examples, but as this is also the Hanukkah season, we’ll relate the one about Solomon Bibo, the Jewish son of a teacher and cantor who was born 1853 in Prussia and came to the Unites States at the age of of 16. Bibo and his family settled in New York, but he and his brothers made their way out West as traders, first to Santa Fe and then to the Acoma area, where he traded regularly with tribal members, who helped push his wagon of goods up their 300-foot-high mesa. Bibo spoke not only English and Yiddish but he also learned Navajo and Laguna and became fluent in Keres, the Acoma language, according to the Jewish Museum of the American West. In 1884, Bibo helped the tribe settle its land claims with nearby ranchers, and the male members of the tribe appointed him governor, a duty he embraced for the next 13 years. There are lots of states and cities with a history of racial tension and police excess, but there are few with New Mexico’s culture of inclusion. Let’s talk about that, too, around the holiday tree and dinner table — and let’s hope that the Tourism Department’s campaign is not drowned out by tales of excessive police force.

LOS ANGELES — Investigators sought to determine the cause of a fiery crash that killed Fast & Furious star Paul Walker while the actor’s fans erected a makeshift memorial Sunday near where the Porsche he was riding in smashed into a light pole and tree. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said speed was a factor in Saturday’s one-car crash, though it will take time to determine how fast the car was going. Because Walker is so closely associated with the underground culture of street racing portrayed in the popular Fast & Furious film franchise, the fatal accident had an eerie quality — a tragic end for a Hollywood hero of speed. The crash also killed Walker’s friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas, according to Walker’s publicist, Ame Van Iden. She said Walker was a passenger in the 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT when they drove away from a fundraiser in the community of Valencia, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Sheriff’s deputies found the car engulfed in flames when they arrived at the site of the crash, near the fundraiser at Rodas’ sport car dealership. Officials have not identified either person found in the car. On Sunday, fans of Walker, 40, gathered to leave flowers, candles and memorabilia from the action movies. Walker is “gone but he’ll never be forgotten because there are so many people that look up to him,” Joel Perez, 23, told the Los Angeles Times at the memorial. Sheriff’s deputy Peter Gomez said investigators are working to determine how fast the car was traveling and what caused it to go out of control, including whether the driver was distracted or something in the road prompted him to swerve. After the Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree, it burst into flames. The downed light pole had a speed limit sign of 45 mph. Walker rode the Fast & Furious franchise to fame, starring

in all but one of the six action blockbusters, beginning with the first film in 2001. He had been on break Paul Walker from shooting the seventh installment; production began in September and while much of the film has been shot, it’s incomplete. Universal Pictures has not said what it plans to do with Fast & Furious 7, which currently is slated for release in July. Walker and Rodas had thrown a fundraiser benefiting victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines. The event was held by Reach Out Worldwide, a charity Walker founded in 2010 to aid victims of natural disasters. The fundraiser and toy drive took place at Rodas’ custom car shop, Always Evolving, in an area of warehouses and office parks. Attendees rushed to the crash, which was nearby but out of sight, to try to put out the flames with fire extinguishers. One attendee of the event, Jim Torp, said he heard the loud sound of a car’s engine revving and then an explosion. Walker and Rodas planned a quick ride, Torp said. “The last words Paul said to anybody were, ‘Hey, I’ll be back in five minutes. All right?’ And that was it,” according to Torp. Walker left behind two completed films. He stars in the upcoming Hurricane Katrina drama Hours, which Lionsgate’s Pantelion Films is to release Dec. 13. He also stars in Brick Mansions, a remake of the French action film District B13 that Relativity plans to release next year. His Fast & Furious co-stars reacted in shock the actor’s death.

Lobos beat Penn St., advance to Elite Eight The New Mexican

Second half goals by Oniel Fisher and Riley McGovern were enough to send The University of New Mexico men’s soccer team into the Elite Eight of the NCAA UNM 2 Tournament. Fisher’s goal in Penn St. 0 the 54th minute was followed three minutes later by McGovern’s, giving the seventhseeded Lobos (13-5-2) a 2-0 victory over visiting Penn State (13-6-2) at the UNM Soccer Complex on Sunday night. With eight wins in its last 10 matches, New Mexico will travel to No. 2 Washington next Saturday in the national quarterfinals. The Huskies eliminated Stanford with a 1-0 decision on Sunday in Seattle and will host the Lobos in an 8 p.m. match next weekend. Fisher broke a scoreless tie with the Nittany Lions on Sunday at the 53:37 mark of the match. He took a shot from the box off a feed from Michael Calderon and found the back of the net, sending the crowd of 3,347 into a frenzy. Calderon paired up with James Rogers 3 minutes, 20 seconds later when McGovern’s shot from inside the box found the back of the net to make it 2-0, New Mexico. The Lobos were never seriously threatened the rest of the way. They outshot the two-time defending Big Ten champions 15-5, but none of Penn State’s attempts were actually on frame. UNM goalkeeper Michael Lisch did not record a single save. He now

Florida St., Ohio St. take top 2 spots in BCS By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press

Florida State and Ohio State are in position to play for the BCS national championship, though Auburn and Missouri are close enough behind in the BCS standings to put pressure on the Buckeyes. The Seminoles grabbed the top spot in the BCS standings released Sunday after Alabama relinquished it for the first time this season.

The Crimson Tide’s wild 34-28 loss at Auburn dropped Alabama to fourth. Ohio State is second and Auburn is third. Missouri is fifth. Auburn and Missouri play in the Southeastern Conference championship game Saturday in Atlanta. The winner should get a boost in the standings, but it might not be enough to catch the unbeaten Buckeyes. Ohio State (12-0) faces Michigan State,

Vonn delays knee surgery in hope of comeback By Pat Graham

The Associated Press

VAIL, Colo. — Lindsey Vonn is delaying further surgery on her right knee for as long as possible in hopes of skiing at the Sochi Olympics. Vonn partially tore one of her reconstructed knee ligaments during a crash in training two weeks ago at Copper Mountain. She is seeing if she can ski without another operation because that would all but end any chance of defending her Olympic downhill title in February. Vonn says she likely would be proceeding in the same way even if this weren’t an Olympic season. “I probably would’ve done what I’m doing right now, test it out,” Vonn said after a training session at Vail on Sunday. “If I felt like it was possible to keep skiing, I probably would’ve. Either way, at the end of the season, I have to reconstruct the ACL. “So it’s kind of like, might as well see how long it holds up. Not a lot of options. In the end, surgery is going to have to happen.”

Christensen fired as Wyoming coach after 5 seasons By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press

Dave Christensen was fired as Wyoming’s football coach Sunday after the Cowboys lost five of their last six games this season. He coached Wyoming for five years, taking the Cowboys to two bowl games. Wyoming finished 5-7 after starting 4-2, ending the season with a 35-7 loss to Utah State on Saturday. “We have come to a point where

our football program has not achieved at the level of success that we expect, and we know from past experience that we can be successful,” athletic director Tom Burman said Dave in a statement. “It Christensen is with that in mind that we move forward in search of a new leader for Cowboy football.”

Sports information: James Barron, 986-3045, jbarron@sfnewmexican.com Design and headlines: Eric J. Hedlund, ehedlund@sfnewmexican.com

Christensen has three years remaining on a contract that runs through 2016. Wyoming said it will pay Christensen’s base salary for the remaining three years for a total buyout of $570,024. The buyout will not be paid with state money, the school said. During last season, Christensen was caught on video screaming profanities at Air Force coach Troy Calhoun after a loss to the Falcons. The school suspended Christensen for a game for the tirade and fined

him $50,000. Christensen went 27-35 in Laramie, and 16-23 in the Mountain West Conference. He took over after a successful stint as Missouri’s offensive coordinator and led the Cowboys to a bowl game in his first and third seasons. Wyoming went 8-5 in 2011, but slid back to 4-8 last year. Christensen worked under Gary Pinkel at Missouri and coached quarterback Chase Daniel when the quarterback was a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Alabama fans, teammates rally around kicker

By John Zenor

The Associated Press

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama kicker Cade Foster was inundated with support from teammates and thousands of fans on social media after missing two field goal attempts and having a third blocked in the Crimson Tide’s loss to Auburn. The initial negative backlash after Saturday’s 34-28 defeat mostly turned supportive by Sunday. A fan page titled “Bama fans supporting Cade Foster” was started on Facebook after the game and was approaching 40,000 “likes” by Sunday afternoon. It included a message that negative posts would be deleted. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron posted on Twitter that “we win & lose as a team. If u blame this on 1 guy U aren’t a true fan!” Linebacker C.J. Mosley was even more emphatic with a tweet urging “fake” and “spoiled” fans to “stop sending threats to my teammates.” Auburn wound up winning on the final play on Chris Davis’ 100-yard return of a missed 57-yard field goal attempt by Adam Griffith, who tried the potential game-winning kick in place of Foster. The loss likely doomed Alabama’s chances of making history with a third consecutive national title. Foster, a senior, had been 11 of 12 on field goal attempts this season before the Iron Bowl. One of his misses came after he had to re-kick when a false start penalty negated his 28-yarder, and two others were 44-yarders. The Tide was stopped short on a fourth-and-1 from Auburn’s 13 after going for it instead of sending Foster out to try to give Alabama a 31-21 lead with about five minutes to play. Some fans reacted angrily to Foster on his Twitter account in the game’s aftermath. One tweet urged him to “drink

bleach” and another said: “Cade foster I’m gonna kill you and your family just FYI.” The tone changed dramatically when calmer heads prevailed Sunday. Blogger Kaitlin Goins, who said she is a 20-year-old Alabama student, posted a letter that included apologies to Foster for his treatment. “I want to apologize for fans ‘booing’ you,” Goins wrote in a widely circulated post. “I want to apologize for the hateful comments. I want to apologize for the death threats. I want to apologize for the future interviews. I want to apologize for the future comments. “But mostly, I want to apologize because your fan base did not stand behind you when you needed us the most.” Foster has rebounded from a rough game in the national spotlight before. He missed

three long field goal tries in 2011 against No. 1 LSU when second-ranked Bama lost 9-6 in overtime. Former Alabama kicker Leigh Tiffin watched the Auburn game on TV and said he’s “sure nobody feels worse today than Cade Foster.” Tiffin said some criticism comes with the position. “The cruelty and a lot of the things are said in the heat of the moment after the game,” said Tiffin, an All-American on the Tide’s 2009 national championship team. “Anybody that plays the position is going to have to take flak when they don’t perform up to standards. You’ve just got to understand that most of the people truly don’t have a full appreciation for what’s involved in the position.” Missouri kicker Andrew Baggett received nasty tweets

and that’s never happened in the history of the BCS,” he said Sunday. Alabama (.8539) is fourth but the Tide would need both Florida State and Ohio State to lose to get back in the title conversation. The BCS is in its last season. It will be replaced by a fourteam playoff next year, which will use a selection committee to pick the teams. Further down the latest standings, the competition to become the last BCS buster is now a one-team race after Fresno State lost to San Jose State. It’s all about Northern Illinois now.

after missing a short field goal attempt in overtime against South Carolina, including one that said “go kill yourself everyone in Missouri hates you.” The Tigers rebounded and will face Auburn on Saturday in the SEC championship game. Foster will get only one more game in his Alabama career. Tiffin’s toughest game at Alabama might have come in an overtime loss to Arkansas. But the stakes weren’t nearly so high, and he was a freshman with plenty of time to gain seasoning and redemption. “Cade’s situation is unique and it’s extraordinarily tough, I’m sure,” Tiffin said. “I don’t really know exactly what that feels like. I’ve certainly had a bad game in my career, but never with those sort of mistakes and not at the end of my career.”

second straight BCS bid, plays Bowling Green in the MAC title game on Friday night. The Huskies can earn an automatic BCS bid two ways: u Finish in the top 12 of the final BCS standings. u Finish in the top 16 of the final standings, ahead of an automatic qualifying conference champion. The Huskies used the latter route to get to the BCS last season with one loss. It could happen again this season. Central Florida, in line to win the American and earn its first automatic BCS bid, is ranked 16th in the latest standings and plays SMU on Saturday. It doesn’t seem likely that the Knights (10-1) will pass the Huskies, so the only thing standing in the way of

Northern Illinois and the BCS is Bowling Green. NIU would most likely play in the Fiesta Bowl. No team will enter the final weekend of the regular season with a BCS bid locked up. Here are the possibilities: u Oklahoma State, Baylor and Texas are all alive to earn the Big 12 title and the conference’s automatic bid to the Fiesta Bowl. Oklahoma State gets the bid by beating Oklahoma. If the Cowboys lose, the winner of the Baylor-Texas game gets the bid. u The winner of the SEC championship gets an automatic bid to the Sugar Bowl. u If Duke wins the ACC championship it will play in the Orange Bowl. u The winner of the Pac-12 title game between Stanford and Arizona State gets a Rose Bowl bid. u Michigan State will earn a Rose Bowl bid by beating Ohio State in the Big Ten title game, but also stands a good chance to end up in the Rose Bowl with a loss. If Ohio State plays for the national championship, the Spartans (11-1) are likely to be picked by the Rose Bowl to replace the Buckeyes. u If UCF loses, it could create a three-way tie for the AAC title with Cincinnati and Louisville that would be settled by the BCS standings. Louisville is 19th in the standings this week, while Cincinnati is unranked. u Alabama is a virtual lock to get an at-large bid, most likely to the Orange Bowl.

BCS: Committee, 4-team playoffs next year 10th in the latest standings, in the Big Ten championship game Saturday in Indianapolis. Florida State is first in both the USA Today coaches’ poll and Harris poll, and rated No. 1 in the compilation of six computer rankings used in the BCS standings. The Seminoles’ .9948 BCS average makes them a lock to get to the title game in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 6 if they can beat Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Saturday. The Buckeyes (.9503) are second in the polls and second in the computers. Auburn (.9233) is third in each. Missouri (.8428) is fifth in each. But each of those SEC Tigers is 11-1. Ohio State is riding a 24-game winning streak. An unbeaten team from a BCS automatic-qualifying conference (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC and Big East, now American Athletic Conference) has never been shut out of national championship game in favor of a team with a loss. The SEC, which has won the last seven BCS championships, would like that to change. “Any one-loss team in the SEC [should be considered] just because of the strength of schedule,” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said. “Hopefully that will be taken into consideration.” Jerry Palm, who analyzes the BCS for CBS.com, said there is no reason to expect the unprecedented to happen. “I think the voters would have to abandon Ohio State,

Vonn: Returns to training this week Continued from Page B-1 On a chilly morning, Vonn took two warmup runs followed by three aggressive passes through the super-G course in her race suit, hugging the corners tight and looking quite fast. Afterward, she said her surgically repaired knee felt “really good.” So much so that Vonn will travel to Lake Louise, Alberta, this week for downhill training on a course she usually dominates. If training goes well, she will race for the first time since tearing ligaments in her right knee during a high-speed accident at the world championships in February. “Just trying to ski solid,” she said. “I’m not trying to do race runs. I’m trying to build into it. Not push it too hard. But I was still able to be aggressive and confident in what I’m doing, so that when I get up to Lake Louise I can hopefully have a good feeling right away.” As she rehabbed the knee over the offseason, Vonn was anticipating a return for the nearby Beaver Creek races this weekend. She was on

pace, too, before her wipeout at the speed center in Copper Mountain in which she partially tore her ACL. Vonn said it’s been difficult to watch Lara Gut of Switzerland win the downhill and super-G races on a new course Vonn was very much look forward to trying out before the 2015 world championships. “Frustrating to miss the race,” Vonn said. “Definitely with this current situation, there was no way I could’ve skied that bumpy, steep course. I know it was the right decision. That gives me a peace of mind. I’m trying to look forward to Lake Louise and cheer for my team.” Asked if she planned to attend the giant slalom race on Sunday, Vonn said, “Oh, no. “My family is leaving so I’m spending a couple of extra hours with my family. Then, I’m going to pack up and get ready for Lake Louise.” Vonn needs three wins to match Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell’s record of 62 victories in World Cup races.

One man dead after altercation outside Arrowhead Stadium KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man died and three people were taken into custody after an altercation that happened Sunday in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium as the Kansas City Chiefs played the Denver Broncos. Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told The Associated Press that the incident was being treated as a homicide but that no arrests had been made. Snapp said the man who died was found inside someone else’s vehicle and a struggle ensued. The man, who was in his 20s, was found lying unconscious on the pavement, Snapp said. Paramedics began administering first aid before he was transported to a hospital, where he died. His name

was not immediately released. “Talking to several witnesses that were out here in the parking lots, there was an individual who came back to his vehicle, saw someone inside the vehicle that did not belong. A struggle ensued between the two. That’s when the individual [who had been inside the vehicle] collapsed,” Snapp said. Snapp said the man who had returned to the vehicle had his son with him, and the boy —whose age was not immediately known — ran for help when the struggle began. Snapp said there were no obvious indications of how the death occurred. The Associated Press

Possible playoff preview as Seahawks host Saints By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — In the bigger picture of the top two teams in the NFC meeting Monday night and what could be at stake in the postseason, getting a victory would be of more importance for New Orleans. As much as Drew Brees and Sean Payton have worked to change the perception of a franchise that for most of its history has struggled, there is one reality about the postseason still staring New Orleans in the face: The Saints have never won a playoff game on the road. While nothing can be clinched by the outcome Monday between the Saints (9-2) and Seahawks (10-1), New Orleans seems to understand a loss likely means the road through the NFC playoffs will go through Seattle.

“Both teams understand what we got ahead of us, what this game means to both teams,” New Orleans safety Roman Harper said. “It’s huge, and if we can get this one, we understand what it sets up for us to be able to do. It puts us in position to accomplish some things we’ve been talking about all year long. All these things are starting to build up and we’re right in the place we want to be. It’s a great opportunity for us. We’ve got a tough one on the road and it will be a great matchup for us.” Seattle understands the home-field importance, too. While the Seahawks showed last year they can win on the road in the postseason, Seattle’s only Super Bowl trip came after having home-field advantage in the playoffs in the 2005 season. A win over the Saints would leave

Seattle two games up on everyone in the NFC with tiebreakers in hand. “It feels good just with the way our team is performing. Everybody is playing together, everybody is playing for one another, and everybody is executing down the stretch,” Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. “Nobody is getting nervous or starting to look ahead or looking past anyone. Here are some things to watch in the Monday night showdown: Knock off the rust: The last time Seattle was on the field, it had its offensive line fully intact for the first time since the first quarter of Week 2 with the returns of Russell Okung, Breno Giacomini and Max Unger from injuries. Wilson was sacked only once, but the line was admittedly rusty in protections. The Seahawks better be at their best against the Saints, who lead the NFL

with 37 sacks. Cameron Jordan tops the Saints’ pass rush with 9½ sacks, and the Seahawks know a variety of pressures are coming from defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. “He does like to change his plan week to week so it’s a little bit harder to zero in on what he’s going to do, but it’s always aggressive and always tough,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Beast mode: Marshawn Lynch’s 67-yard TD run against the Saints in the playoffs three seasons ago has been viewed over a million times on YouTube. It was a career-highlight run for Lynch, but his ability to regularly get 4 or 5 yards against the current Saints on Monday night could be critical. New Orleans’ run defense is 25th in the NFL, but the Saints are so often playing with a lead that their ability to stop the run becomes moot as opponents try

to rally. If Lynch and the Seahawks can control possession and convert drives into points, the Saints’ struggles with stopping the run could be exposed. Cornerback concern: Seattle was without starting cornerback Brandon Browner due to a groin injury. His replacement, Walter Thurmond, was suspended four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The Seahawks will face the most prolific passing offense in the NFC with backup Byron Maxwell starting opposite Sherman and second-year player Jeremy Lane seeing significant playing time. “They are going to come in and play the same type of technique,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “You don’t see something change differently in regards to how they play a certain coverage or how they play a technique.”

Patriots rally for win over Texans New England still had a first half deficit to overcome The Associated Press

chance late, but the offense stalled. On fourth-and-13, Case Keenum threw an incompletion as he was being hit. Ben Tate ran for 102 yards and three touchdowns for the Texans, who haven’t won since Sept. 15. It was the first 100-yard rushing game since 2011 for Tate, who has been slowed since Oct. 20 with four broken ribs. The victory ended a threegame road skid for the Patriots, who have won their last eight December games and 16 of their last 17 in the month. The victory assured them their 13th straight winning record. “It’s a big plus,” Belichick said. “We have to find a way to win on the road. Fortunately this week we did it. The last three we were in similar situations to this and didn’t do it.” Rob Gronkowski had six receptions for 127 yards, and Julian Edelman added 101 yards receiving on nine catches. New England didn’t miss starting running back Stevan Ridley, who was not active after having fumbling problems recently. Belichick evaded questions about why

he was inactive. Keenum threw for 272 yards with an interception, and Andre Johnson had eight receptions for 121 yards. Tate’s third score came when he ran 10 yards to make it 31-28. The key play of that drive came on a 66-yard reception by rookie DeAndre Hopkins. LeGarrette Blount’s 7-yard touchdown run had given New England a 28-24 lead. Before that, Keenum put Houston back on top when he took a keeper 5 yards late in the third quarter. Brady had picked apart Houston’s secondary on a drive he finished by finding Shane Vereen wide open for a 9-yard touchdown to give New England its first lead, 21-17. Brady used a 50-yard pass to Gronkowski to get New England to the Houston 13 early in the third quarter. James Develin was hit by four Texans, but kept his feet moving and plunged into the end zone for a 1-yard score to cut the lead to 17-14. A 20-yard touchdown run by Tate extended Houston’s lead to 17-7 late in the second period.

Brady had at least five seconds to throw on a 23-yard TD pass to Gronkowski in the first quarter. Gronkowski scooped up the low throw and fell into the end zone for the score. Keenum was intercepted by rookie Logan Ryan when he threw as he was being hit on Houston’s ensuing possession. Gostkowski’s 55-yard field goal attempt that sailed wide right broke his streak of 21 straight made field goals, the second longest in team history. Tate put Houston up early on an 8-yard run and Randy Bullock made a 43-yard field goal to push the lead to 10-0. Notes u Johnson became the 15th player in NFL history to reach 900 receptions. He did it in his 150th career game, making him the second fastest to reach the mark behind Marvin Harrison, who did it in 149 games. u New England was not called for a penalty. The Patriots did the same thing on Oct. 6 in a loss at Cincinnati u Houston had four touchdowns rushing Sunday after entering the game with two this season.

HOUSTON — Tom Brady was glad to escape Houston with a win. He would have been much happier if Patriots 34 his New England Texans 31 Patriots didn’t have to overcome another first-half deficit to do it. Brady threw for 371 yards and two scores, and Stephen Gostkowski made two long field goals in the fourth quarter Sunday as the Patriots rallied for a 34-31 win over Houston. “I wish we could start fast and put the foot on the gas pedal the whole way,” Brady said. New England coach Bill Belichick echoed Brady’s feelings. “It’s not the way we want to play,” he said. “Hopefully, I can find a way to coach better than I’ve done, find a way to get ahead.” The Texans’ franchiserecord skid reached 10 games. Gary Kubiak coached from the sideline for the first time since suffering a mini-stroke Nov. 3. He missed one game before working the last two games from the booth. “We’re playing hard, we’re not always playing good,” Kubiak said. “We had a lot of opportunities to make plays ourselves, just didn’t make enough.” New England overcame a 24-point first-half deficit last week to beat the Broncos 34-31 in overtime. The Patriots (9-3) trailed by 10 at halftime in this one, and the lead changed five times in a wild second half. New England tied it with a 53-yard field goal and took a 34-31 lead with another one from 53 with about three minutes left. “Whatever we’re doing is not good enough, and we can’t keep getting behind because you have to play too well in the second half to overcome,” Brady said. The Texans (2-10) had a

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Reach out to a dear friend whom you always enjoy. This person might have a different perspective that you often need to hear. Tonight: A meeting could go late.

Ex-wife is invited to family gatherings Dear Annie: In 1988, I had a wife and three beautiful children. Then my wife decided to be “liberated.” She wanted to spread her wings and be independent. She engaged me in a particularly acrimonious divorce and lived on child and spousal support until she discovered that being independent was not working for her. She remarried and moved my children hundreds of miles away, effectively excising them from my life, even though she admits I was a great father. Needless to say, I harbor considerable animosity toward her. I’ve since remarried a wonderful woman. My children are grown and starting their own families. I recognize that I must endure the unpleasantness of having to see my ex at my children’s weddings, etc., but I never expected that my brother and sister would invite my ex to their own children’s weddings and other family functions. I feel that because my ex divorced me, she is no longer a part of my family and should not be invited to attend family gatherings. I have made this point very clear to my siblings, along with the fact that seeing my ex causes me significant pain. Further, my new wife feels she’s being upstaged by my ex at these events. Yet, my siblings insist on including this woman. Is it unrealistic for me to believe that when my ex divorced me, she also divorced my family? Am I expecting too much to ask that my siblings not embrace the woman who devastated my life? — Divorced in Oregon Dear Oregon: Sorry to say, but what your siblings do is not something you can dictate. Their children may still consider this woman to be their aunt, and their relationship to her does not include the bitterness and rancor you are hanging onto. Please let it go. Allowing your ex to rattle you after all these years gives her power over you. You don’t have to enjoy her company, but you can

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH A risk or an offer might not be the best path. You easily could make a mistake. You will see life from a renewed perspective if you honor boundaries. Tonight: Your treat. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH If you are honest with yourself, you might not be sure as to which way to head with a personal matter. Tonight: As you like it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Know when it is necessary to take a back seat. The unexpected will continue to be the theme. You know what is best for you. Tonight: Take a deep breath, then decide. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH A financial matter could be undermining you, if you allow it to. Look at your long-term personal goals before you take action. Tonight: Celebrate a new beginning. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Take a stand. Your instincts will help you follow through on an important matter. You might feel pressured to process a problem. Tonight: No risk-taking.

Hocus Focus

work on making her presence insignificant. Dear Annie: Two years ago, my father and his wife became irritated with me and cut me out of their lives. When I became pregnant several months later, they got back in touch because they wanted to be a part of the baby’s life. My husband recently returned to college, and so we moved back into my mother’s house in order to save money. This angered my father and his wife, who said I am a bad mother and need to grow up. They shut me out again. My parents have been divorced for a long time. I was never close to my father or his new family. Dad is not a particularly nice guy, but I feel I should keep in contact. Now I’m wondering whether it’s worth trying to mend this relationship, or should I just admit it’s toxic and cut my losses? — Had Enough in Michigan Dear Michigan: This doesn’t have to be either-or. You don’t have to turn yourself into a pretzel to stay in his good graces, but you also don’t need to cut him out entirely. Send him photos of the baby. Invite him to the birthday parties. But otherwise, limit contact and learn to ignore his criticisms. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Too Late To Try Again,” whose relative cut her off without explanation. The same thing happened to me. I attended a family reunion in Michigan four years ago. A cousin’s wife was the organizer, and I thought she did a great job. The next year, I didn’t receive an invitation. I contacted the wife, who blocked me on Facebook. I then contacted my cousin, who said, “The invitation was probably lost.” But when it happened the next two years, I knew it was intentional. I haven’t a clue what I did, but I’m glad I read that column. It saved me years of frustration. — Thankful in Kansas
