ALEK KORAB, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
“Fix Facebook!” demanded protesters in
D.C. yesterday. Usually, we ask politicians
to fix fundamental things for us, like
infrastructure or healthcare. With its 1.8
billion users around the world, Facebook
is fundamental. It collects data about us
and sells it, and it allegedly facilitates bad
guys influencing elections that shape how
we live. And it’s being led by a manchild who
screws up. Facebook is too important to
leave fixing it to kids. Read more on

Russian U.N. Ambassador
Vassily Nebenzia appealed to
the U.S. on Tuesday to “refrain”
from any action it might be planning against Syria over a suspected
deadly chemical weapons attack.
“The threats you are proffering that
you’re stating vis-a-vis Syria should
make us seriously worried, all of
us, because we could find ourselves
on the threshold of some very sad
and serious events,” Nebenzia told
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley. “I
would once again ask you, once
again beseech you, to refrain from
the plans that you’re currently
developing for Syria,” he said after
the council failed to approve a
third draft resolution on chemical
weapons attacks in Syria. Russia
on Tuesday vetoed a U.S.-drafted
U.N. Security Council resolution
that would have created a new
inquiry to ascertain blame for
chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
Twelve council members voted in
favor, while Bolivia joined Russia
in voting no, and China abstained.
A resolution needs nine votes in
favor and no vetoes by Russia,
China, France, Britain or the U.S. to
pass. “This resolution is the bare
minimum that the council can
do to respond to the attack,” said
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki
Haley. Read more on pages 14-15.

FBI agents who raided
the offices of President
Donald Trump’s personal
attorney were looking for details
about “arrangements, agreements and payments” related to
two women who have said they
had sexual relationships with
Trump, a source said on Tuesday.
In its search targeting attorney
Michael Cohen on Monday, the
FBI was looking for information
on payments to adult-film star
Stormy Daniels, who received a
$130,000 payment from Cohen
in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement, and Karen
McDougal, a former Playboy
model, the source said. The
Federal Bureau of Investigation
searches of Cohen’s office and
home, which Trump denounced
on Monday as disgraceful, were
a dramatic new development
in a series of probes involving
associates of the Republican
president. The New York Times,
which first reported on the news
about the women, said the
search warrant sought information about McDougal, who was
paid $150,000 by the parent
company to tabloid newspaper
The National Enquirer, which
then withheld a story about her
relationship with Trump.

CHINA VOWS TO OPEN
ECONOMY, CUT TARIFFS
REDDIT DELETES ACCOUNTS
WITH RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA
Chinese President Xi Jinping promised on Tuesday
to open the country’s
economy further and lower import tariffs on products like cars,
in a speech seen as an attempt
to defuse an escalating trade dispute with the U.S. While much of
his pledges were reiterations of
reforms that foreign businesses
say are long overdue, Xi’s comments sent stock markets and
the U.S. dollar higher on hopes
of a compromise that could avert
a trade war. Xi said China will
widen market access for foreign
investors, addressing a chief
complaint of its trading partners
Social media network Reddit
announced on Tuesday that
it had taken down nearly a
thousand accounts suspected of
links to Russia’s Internet Research
Agency. The company said 316
posts from the Russian accounts
were made on the popular proTrump page, The_Donald, which
reflected intense support for the
New York businessman during
the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump struck a conciliatory tone
in response to Xi’s speech, saying
in a post on Twitter that he
was “thankful” for the Chinese
leader’s kind words on tariffs, as
well as his “enlightenment” on
the issue of intellectual property.
Washington charges that Chinese
companies steal the trade secrets
of American companies and force
them into joint ventures to get
hold of their technology, an issue
that is at the center of Trump’s
current tariff threats.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg
apologizes for missteps
NEWS
Mark Zuckerberg has claimed to support proposed legislation requiring
social media sites to disclose the
identities of buyers of online
political ads. GETTY IMAGES
Zuckerberg, who
founded Facebook
in 2004, is fighting
to prove that he is
the right person to
go on leading the
social media giant.
Facebook Chief Executive
Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday fended off questions
from U.S. senators on how
the social network handles user data and plans to
counter attempts at interfering in U.S. elections.
Zuckerberg repeated
his apologies made on
Monday for a range of
problems that have beset
the world’s largest social
network, but the 33-yearold internet mogul broke
little new ground in a
joint hearing of the U.S.
Senate’s Commerce and
Judiciary
committees,
raising investor hopes he
could forestall strict regulation.
“We are going through
a broad philosophical
shift at the company,”
said Zuckerberg, wearing
a dark suit and tie instead
of his typical T-shirt and
jeans.

Facebook faces a growing crisis of confidence
among users, advertisers,

disclosing in September
that Russians under fake
names used the social network to try to influence
U.S. voters in the months
before and after the 2016
election, writing about
inflammatory
subjects,
setting up events and buying ads.
“We believe it is entirely possible that there will
be a connection there,”
Zuckerberg said when
asked if there was overlap between Cambridge
Analytica’s harvested user
data and the political propaganda pushed by the
Kremlin-linked Internet
Research Agency during
the 2016 presidential election, which Facebook has
said was seen by some 126
million people.

and three Russian companies with interfering in

A securities lawyer explains
the Facebook hearing
Mark Zuckerberg testified
before Congress on Tuesday concerning a privacy
scandal in which 87 million Facebook users’ data
was allegedly shared with
Cambridge Analytica,
a political consultancy
firm hired by the Trump
campaign.
Metro spoke with Andrew Stoltmann, a trial
attorney and adjunct securities law professor at the
Northwestern’s School of
Law, about the legality of
this situation.
What is the legal issue
at the center of Mark
Zuckerberg’s congressional hearings?
The main issue deals with
what happened in the
data breach and what
steps Facebook takes to
protect that data. Zuckerberg has already tried to
get in front of these issues
by throwing his support
behind the Honest Ads
Act, which would hold social media platforms such
as Facebook to the same
political advertising rules
as TV, print and radio. It
has not yet been passed
into law.
Is there legal recourse
for the users whose
data was harvested?
There are over a dozen
class-action lawsuits. But
historically those data
breach cases have led
to minimal settlements
and payments for users.
I would expect the same
in the cases against
Facebook.
Have other companies
had legal issues like
this, and does it mean
Facebook’s end?
Many other companies
have had data hacks and
have survived. Target is
the classic example. But
Facebook is so unique
in that it relies on users
sharing data to create
the Facebook experience.
Facebook will survive this
given the profitability of
its advertising platform.
But it is a serious PR hit
that has shaved off billions from the valuation
of the company.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg
testified before Congress,
Facebook was issuing
messages to users notifying them that users who
had not signed up for
suspicious apps the social
network was banning
(specifically This Is Your
Digital Life) may have had
their data compromised
through people they were
Facebook-friends
with
who used the apps.
Encryption
expert
Jakub Kokoszka, managing director of UseCrypt,
an encryption platform
for secure data transmission, spoke to Metro
about the ramifications
of recent revelations for
Facebook users and the
world’s largest social network, and discusses which
online apps and technologies could be next.
Has Facebook violated
its trust with users to
the extent that they
have
suffered
real
damages? Could any of
them possibly consider
suing Facebook?
I am not an expert on
U.S. law, however it does
look obvious that Facebook had a real impact
on U.S. history, as well as
investor’s pockets. Facebook’s stock lost millions
in valuation and current
assets, and 50 percent of
the population is disappointed with the impact
on politics. How much of Facebook users’ private
data is really private?
I think this specifically is
what we will really learn
over the next few days,
turns out most of us were
using the features on
Facebook unconsciously.
Some studies show that
only 14 percent of users
efficiently activate the encryption features in Messenger. This is certainly
frightening, I hope this
will change and having
more users aware ends in
a more positive outcome.
If Zuckerberg is calling
this “a breach of trust”
but acknowledges it
was possible for apps
to do it and Facebook
didn’t prevent it, some
would say he was complicit. Would you agree
or disagree and why?
As a publicly listed company, there are a ton of
regulations. However, one
of the key aspects behind
listed firms should, first
and foremost, be transparency.
Are we all “products”
in the social media
world? People were using sophisticated tools to contact
and share data for free,
now they understand
that they have paid the
highest price in history
— their privacy. You can
ask a performance marketing agency, it will put
a price tag on you and I,

based on our age, gender,
education, etc. Essentially,
we are products — turned
out that 87 million people
were working for a market research agency called
Facebook pro bono.
Which platform will
face the next scandal?
I am wondering what
the implications are for
WhatsApp users. You can
see in their privacy policy
that as part of “Facebook
Family,” WhatsApp shares
a lot of data with Facebook. I also believe that
cryptocurrency world can
be the next one to suffer.
It is worth reminding the
case of Mark Karpelès,
whose exchange platform, Mt. Gox that operated in Japan, got 850,000
bitcoins stolen.
Could this be the end
of Facebook?
Yes, I strongly believe so,
Facebook is no longer
fashionable. Users do not
want to put their names
next to Facebook, this is
why we see companies
like Tesla, SpaceX, and Jim
Carrey and many others
deleting their accounts.

Nurturing intimacy
goes hand in hand
with communication,
but maintaining that
connection with your
partner isn’t always easy—
especially if you’re in the
throes of a rough patch.
This is where couples
therapy comes in. The
right therapist can help
bridge the gap and create
a safe space to open up
about sexuality and other
issues in your relationship.

actually like?
How can it help?
The traditional view of
therapy is lying on the

I usually use the first
couple of sessions to get
information about their
background, personal
history, and expectations
for therapy, then we work
dissatisfaction to
communication issues to
emotional and/or physical
infidelity and beyond. The
idea is to help couples heal
in whatever areas they’re
experiencing obstacles or
pain so they can reconnect
and reestablish that
closeness and intimacy
that’s so vital in a healthy
relationship.
One area you specialize
in is unusual sexual
behaviors and interests. Is
this a challenging subject
for couples?
It can be. Most people who
have what they perceive
as unusual sexual interests
are afraid to bring it up to
their partner out of fear of
being judged. But when
people are able to share
what they’re feeling with
their partner, then find a
way to integrate it into
their relationship in a way
that works for both of
them, the couple usually
ends up thriving. They
have better communication
and usually feel closer and
more intimate as a result.
What makes PhIIRST
stand out from the pack?
All of our therapists have
received specialized
training and/or certification
in sex therapy. We’re so
well versed in sexual
behaviors and interests,
so you’re not going to be

Last week, President

billion of new tariffs
on Chinese goods, but
first daughter Ivanka

Ivanka, a senior White

the Ivanka Trump line of

is largely made in China.
Last month, Trump announced he would call
for a 25 percent tariff on
imported Chinese steel
and a 10 percent tariff on
imported aluminum.
Last Tuesday, the
administration released
a list of $50 billion in
additional tariffs on 1,300
largely high-tech items,
including batteries, semiconductors and heavy machinery. China responded
by calling for $50 billion
in tariffs on U.S. goods,
including soybeans, pork
and aircraft, traditional
red-state products that
would hurt Trump’s base.

to look into the matter.
“Ivanka Trump appears to

said Anne Harkavy, the
executive director of
Democracy Forward, in
a statement. “Her official
duties are supposed to
benefit American taxpayers, and she should not
exploit this position for
personal financial gain.”
Early in Trump’s presidency, Ivanka had dinner
at her father’s Mar-aLago resort with Chinese
president Xi Jinping. That
day, three trademark applications she had filed in
China were approved.

A nonpartisan group said the new U.S. tax regime will likely allow corporations to avoid even more tax. GETTY IMAGES
Report: US companies
found ways to avoid
taxes before tax cut bill
Fifteen U.S. corporations including online
retailer Amazon.com
Inc., power company
Duke Energy Corp.
and insurer Prudential
Financial Inc. avoided
U.S. tax on nearly
$25 billion in combined
profits last year, a tax
watchdog group said on
Tuesday.
A report by the
Institute on Taxation
and Economic Policy, or
ITEP, said data showed
how profitable Fortune
500 companies have
routinely lowered their
tax bills long before the
Republican tax overhaul signed into law by
President Donald Trump
in December.
The 15 corporations
had profits of $24.5
billion in 2017 but managed to obtain nearly
$1.4 billion in rebates
from the U.S. Treasury
for a combined tax rate
of minus 5.6 percent,
according to the ITEP
report, which examined
corporate income tax
disclosures.
The nonpartisan
group said the new
U.S. tax regime, which
slashed the corporate
income tax rate from 35
percent to 21 percent
beginning in January,
will likely allow corporations to avoid even
more tax.
ITEP said while
“disclosures made by
these companies are
too vague to allow a
complete diagnosis of
how they are avoiding
income taxes” they used
a variety of tax breaks
to cut their tax bills.
Amazon received a
$137 million federal
rebate on $5.4 billion
in U.S. profits, resulting
an effective tax rate of
negative 2.5 percent, by
using a tax break that
allows companies to
write off the value of
executive stock options,
according to ITEP.
Charlotte, North
Carolina-based Duke
Energy obtained a
$247 million rebate on
$4.2 billion in U.S. profits by using accelerated
depreciation on capital
investments and renewable energy production
tax credits to lower its
federal tax rate to a
minus 5.9 percent, the
report said.

How could Trump remove
Mueller from Russia probe?
Here is a look at
how a special counsel can be removed
from the job.
After reports on Monday
that the FBI had raided
the offices of his attorney
Michael Cohen, President
Donald Trump was asked
if he would fire special
counsel Robert Mueller.
“Well, I think it’s a disgrace, what’s going on,”
Trump replied, calling
Mueller’s
investigation
into any links between
his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia and possible obstruction of justice
a witch hunt. “We’ll see
what happens.”
Firing Mueller
The
special
counsel
regulation under which
Mueller was appointed
gives the attorney general or acting attorney
general sole authority
to fire Mueller and only
for “good cause,” such as
misconduct, dereliction
of duty, incapacity or conflict of interest.
Attorney General Jeff
Sessions recused himself in March 2017 from
overseeing the Russia
investigation after the
emergence of previously

think it’s
a disgrace,
what’s
going on.”
President Donald Trump
undisclosed contacts with
the Russian ambassador,
so that authority has fallen to the department’s
No. 2, Deputy Attorney
General Rod Rosenstein.
Mueller was appointed
by Rosenstein following Trump’s dismissal of
Comey, whose agency
had led the Russia investigation at its outset.
Most legal experts say
the special counsel regu-
lation is constitutional
and Trump must follow
its protocol. Ignoring it
would likely trigger a legal battle and a political
firestorm.
Rosenstein has told
Congress he has confidence in Mueller, prompting concerns among
some Trump critics that
the president might fire
Rosenstein and replace
him with someone willing to end Mueller’s investigation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. GETTY IMAGES
tor General Robert Bork,
next in line at the Justice
Department at the time,
finally followed Nixon’s
order and fired Cox.
The events, which became known as the “Saturday Night Massacre,”
proved a political disaster
for Nixon. Another special
prosecutor was appointed
and the Watergate investigation continued, leading
to the president’s resignation the following year.
Who would come after
Rosenstein?
If Rosenstein were to resign in protest over an
order to fire Mueller, the
task of overseeing Mueller’s investigation would
typically fall to the associ-
ate attorney general, the
No. 3 official at the Justice
Department.
The
person
who
held that position, Rachel Brand, has stepped
down and taken a post at
Walmart Inc. Jesse Panuccio, the principal deputy
associate attorney general, is doing her job.
But Panuccio does not
take Brand’s place in the
department’s succession
order, legal experts said.
Until Trump formally
replaces Brand, the task
of overseeing Mueller
in the event of Rosenstein’s removal would
fall to Solicitor General
Noel Francisco, according to an internal Justice Department memo.
Another replacement
tactic?
Trump could fire Rosenstein or Sessions and
name a replacement who
would fire Mueller. The
Federal Vacancies Reform
Act, which lays out rules
for filling vacant executive positions, could be
interpreted as allowing
the president to replace
Sessions or Rosenstein.
Trump could find
someone who fits that criteria and is willing to stop
the investigation, said
Andy Grewal, a professor
at the University of Iowa
College of Law.
“That’s probably the
most politically savvy way
to fire Mueller,” he said.

US, Russia clash at UN
over attacks in Syria
Trump on Tuesday
canceled a planned
trip to Latin America later this week
to focus instead on
responding to the
Syria incident.
Russia and the United
States tangled on Tuesday at the United Nations
over the use of chemical weapons in Syria as
Washington and its allies
considered whether to
strike at President Bashar
al-Assad’s forces over a
suspected poison gas attack last weekend.
Moscow and Washington halted attempts
by each other in the U.N.
Security Council to set
up international investigations into chemical
weapons attacks in Syria,
which is in the throes of
a seven-year-old civil war.
President
Donald
Trump and Western allies are discussing possible military action to
punish Assad for a suspected poison gas attack
on Saturday on a rebelheld town that long had
held out against government forces. Trump had
on Monday warned of a
quick, forceful response
once responsibility for
the Syria attack was established.
On the diplomatic
front, Russia vetoed a
U.S.-drafted
resolution
at the United Nations
to create
a new inquiry to
ascertain
blame for
such attacks.
Bashar al-Assad

The United States and
other countries then
blocked a rival Russian
bid to set up a separate
probe that would require
the Security Council to
attribute responsibility.
Moscow opposes any
Western strike on its
close ally Assad and has
vetoed Security Council
action on Syria 12 times
since the conflict started.
U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations Nikki
Haley told the Security
Council that adopting
the U.S.-drafted resolution was the least that
member nations could
do.
“History will record
that, on this day, Russia chose protecting a
monster over the lives
of the Syrian people,”
Haley said, referring to
Assad.
At least 60 people were killed
and more than
1,000 injured in Saturday’s suspected chemical weapons attack on
the town of Douma, according to a Syrian relief
group.
Russian U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia
said Washington’s decision to put forward its
resolution could be a prelude to a Western strike
on Syria.
“The United States is
again trying to mislead
the international community and is taking yet
one more step toward
confrontation,” Nebenzia told the 15-member
council. “It is clear that
the provocation step has
nothing to do with a desire to investigate what
happened.”
Twelve council members voted in favor of the
U.S.-drafted resolution,
while Bolivia joined Russia in voting no and China abstained. A Security

Doctors and witnesses in Syria have said victims showed symptoms of poisoning, possibly by a nerve agent, and
reported the smell of chlorine gas. GETTY IMAGES
The Douma incident
has thrust Syria’s conflict
back to the forefront of
the international stage,
pitting Washington and
Moscow against each other once again.
Trump told a meeting
with military leaders and
national security advisers
on Monday that he would
make a decision about
how to respond within a
few days, adding that the
United States had “a lot
of options militarily” on
Syria.
Assad’s
government
and Russia have said there
was no evidence a gas attack had taken place and
that the claim was bogus.
A U.S. strike is likely to
involve naval assets, given
the risk to aircraft from
Russian and Syrian air defense systems. A U.S. Navy
guided-missile destroyer,
the USS Donald Cook, is
in the Mediterranean.
Last year, the U.S.
launched strikes from two
Navy destroyers against a
Syrian air base.

Evidence mounts
that Ivanka is the
only one that Donald
Trump actually likes
It’s all about
omission.
MICHAEL MARTIN
letters@metro.us
It was clear that Donald
Trump prefers his daughter Ivanka to her younger
sister Tiffany — a long,
documented trail of sug-
gestive quotes and passiveaggressive Twitter comma
placement stands as evidence. But it might be that
Ivanka is Trump’s only
child he actually likes.
Trump Sr. “took regular pleasure” in saying
that his sons Don Jr. and
Eric “were in the back
of the room when God
handed out brains,” wrote
Michael Wolff in the recent exposé Fire & Fury,
“but then again, Trump
tended to scorn anyone
who might be smarter than he was.” In fact,
Wolff contended, Ivanka
“certainly no native genius, was the designated
family smart person, her
husband Jared the family’s smooth operator.”
TRUMP AND DONALD JR.
Meanwhile, the Trump presidency has provided a number
of opportunities for Donald
Trump Jr. to prove himself the
Fredo of the Trump family,
a nickname that The Daily
Beast reported given to him
by White House officials after
the milquetoast screw-up in
“The Godfather.” The “I love it”
email chain about the meeting
with Russians in Trump Tower
to get dirt on Hillary Clinton
was only one.
Trump Jr. was reportedly
“terrified” of his father during
filming of “The Apprentice”
and was smacked around by
Trump Sr. in full view of his
dorm hallmates for failing to
greet his father at the door in
a suit. More recently, the president was deeply disappointed
that Don Jr. and wife Vanessa
had filed for divorce, as he’d
personally intervened to keep
them together.
It might be that Ivanka is Trump’s only child he actually likes. GETTY IMAGES
TRUMP AND ERIC
Eric has the chance to become
at least an equal disappointment to his father. It’s his
quotes about the Trump Organization’s ties to Russia that
stand in direct conflict to the
president’s insistence that they
have no ties to Russia. “I HAVE
NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA
- NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO
NOTHING!” the president said
in a January 2017 tweet. But
Eric Trump told golf writer
James Dodson in 2014 that the
Trumps “have all the funding
we need out of Russia,” Vanity
Fair reported.

And even though Ivanka
may have made the misstep
with the biggest ultimate consequences for her father —
with husband Jared Kushner,
she reportedly lobbied for the
president to fire FBI director
James Comey — there’s nothing even approaching criticism
of her in the public record.
And he may have given her
the biggest gift of all: In the
$150 billion of new prospective China tariffs the president
announced this week, clothing
and shoe manufacturers —
e.g. Ivanka Trump — are nowhere to be found.

Bondar points out that Trump
may have dished out his
ultimate sign of disapproval to
Eric — by hardly mentioning
him. “If you’re looking for
Donald Trump quotes about
his daughter Ivanka Trump,
you’ll find loads — and
some of them a bit, let’s say,
inappropriate — but it looks
like dear old dad has said
almost nothing about Eric,”
she writes. “I had to do a real
deep dive to find just a few.”
Bondar also found Trump’s
recent congratulatory tweet
on the birth of Eric’s son to be
“a little cold.”

How to watch Coachella from your couch
Coachella starts on the
second spookiest day of
the year: Friday the 13th.
If you’re nowhere near
Indio, California — or
anywhere on the West
Coast for that matter —
and don’t have the funds
or spare time to get your
Coachella on, fear not!
You can actually live
stream Coachella from
the comfort of your living room couch (or wherever you normally camp
out to watch Netflix).
How to live-stream
Coachella
YouTube is live streaming Coachella for the
first weekend (April
13-15). There are over 75
confirmed artists who
will be included in this
broadcast such as Haim,
The Weeknd, Tyler, the
Creator and Beyoncé.
(Did we mention you can
live-stream Beyoncé?!)
The live stream will
be compatible with any
screen — desktop, TV
and mobile devices.
You can plan out your
Coachella live stream in
advance by registering
for a free account and se-
Marshmello performs in the Sahara Tent at Coachella 2017. GETTY IMAGES
lecting the acts you want
to see — that way, they
will automatically play
if you’re engrossed in a
different performance
when one of your faves
comes on.
If that isn’t enough,
Coachella is also adding a
fourth channel to the live
stream, which, according
to the site, will cover the
“Main Stage, Sahara Tent,
and festival grounds in
an immersive VR180
stream.”
You can also download the Coachella app to
stay connected and be
the first to receive important updates.
Before we let you go
into the flower-crowned,
M.L. BATH & COMPANY
creative abyss, here’s
another quick tip:If you
want to get the Coachella
experience during the
second weekend (April
20-22), you can always
rely on social media feeds
for coverage — we’re
sure Internet influencers
and select brands will be
documenting their every
move.
Or, perhaps, some
lucky friends of yours are
attending the festival.
Just tell them to send you
all the good stuff while
you’re at home pretending it’s 70 degrees and
sunny. The music lover
in you will still get your
Coachella fix (and Beyoncé, no less). SAM BRODSKY

“You musn’t be afraid
to dream a little bigger,
darling.” WARNER BROS.
LIFESTYLE
“You can choose.”
20TH CENTURY FOX
Better living through
We asked Dan Abella, certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming coach and
sci-fi expert, on combining them to reach self-actualization. EVA KIS
By day, Dan Abella coaches people from actors to
athletes in developing a
more successful mindset
at Peak Performance
Sciences. By night, he is
New York City’s foremost
science fiction enthusiast
who organizes the annual Philip K. Dick Sci-Fi
Film Festival.
Those two interests
will collide next week at
The Kosmodrome, a free
one-day “motivational
and immersive theater
experience” that incorporates films, light shows,
brain-stimulating music
and performances that,
to borrow a phrase from
“Inception,” will help you
dream a little bigger.
“The Kosmodrome is
a transformative power
that evokes intense
emotional states to
replace years of
negative conditioning with life
enhancing flow
experiences,”
Abella says.
“With the aim of
personal growth
and connection to
one’s core values and
beliefs, this experiential
journey brings forth a
world of wholeness and
freedom.”
His history with
science fiction goes
back way further than
Abella’s 20 years as a
coach, specializing in a
method known as NeuroLinguistic Programming.
It was around age 8 when
he saw his first sci-fi film:
“The Fly,” by his recollection. “I always felt sci-fi
speaks to us on many lev-
els,” he says. “Sci-fi draws
upon a larger source of
inspiration and can often
give us truths about who
we are that as direct as
you’d find in a standard
book of psychology.”
So how exactly can
you live better though
sci-fi? Abella gave us a
few pointers.
Reality is much
more subjective
than you think
Most people accept the
world as it is presented
to them. But just as
Neo realizes there is no
spoon in “The Matrix,”
Abella says we need to
understand how much
Organize
your mind
The film’s idea of stacked
dream sequences is a
great example of an
organized mind. Whether
it’s the engines Nikola
Tesla would build in his
mind before he ever built
an engine in real life or
the idea of infiltrating
the subconscious mind
to steal information in
“Inception,” having a
structure to your mind
is a learned skill. “People
spend more time modeling their apartments
than modeling their
minds,” laments Abella,
noting that it’s a learned
skill like any other. “The
mind is a fluid sense of
processes that you can
move internally to open
up more spaces so we
can be more creative
and more insightful
about the world.”
Don’t trust machines
above yourself
“Find out how deep
the rabbit hole goes.”
WARNER BROS.
of reality is actually less
real than we think. Of
course, you can’t stop
bullets or survive a jump
from a building in real
life, but understanding
where your boundaries
actually are — physically,
emotionally, mentally,
professionally — is the
key you need to unlocking your ambition and
potential.
With self-driving cars
killing pedestrians and
digital GPS systems sending drivers down a flight
of stairs, we’re already
seeing how well-meaning
machines can benignly
kill us. This isn’t even
getting into the territory
of HAL in “2001: A Space
Odyssey,” the machine
that believes itself infallible having an emotional
crisis when it realizes it’s
been given false information. The lesson is not
only to be careful with
how much power we give
machines over us. “AI is
sci-fi
“We’re not meant to save
the world, we’re meant to
leave it.” 20TH CENTURY FOX
definitely something we
need to be very careful
about, how we develop it
and how we interact with
it, because we could very
well use it as a crutch
and not rely on our own
senses.”
Check your
preconceived notions
In the era of fake news,
everyone is wary of
bias — but we’re not
always sure what
it looks like. For
example, do minorities commit more
crimes, or are these
communities simply
overpoliced and the
data skewed because
of that? This is a crisis
currently unfolding,
but “Minority Report”
warned us back in 2002
about the dangers of predictive policing. “By the
time people find out the
truth of someone, everybody’s opinion is already
made up,” Abella points
out. “He’s been tried and
convicted.” Believing
something because it
feels true is truthiness,
not truth. Abella’s advice?
“Step back and ask ourselves, who benefits from
putting out this story at
this time?
“This mission is too
important for me to allow
you to jeopardize it.” MGM
Remember your
own power
Technology is what got
the Earth in trouble in
“Interstellar.” But it was
human ingenuity and
love that saved Matthew McConaughey’s
character and our entire
species in “Interstellar,”
a story about time travel
where the future can
touch the past. That may
or may not be possible
thanks to relativity, but
one thing scientists are
increasingly saying exists is parallel universes.
“There’s some wellrespected physicists that
believe when we think
of something or fantasize about something,
what we’re actually
doing is perceiving another reality, a parallel
universe that exists right
next to us,” says Abella.
Even when a sci-fi film is
about how far we’ve invented ourselves beyond
the primordial ooze the
first lifeforms crawled
out of, the lesson often is
that being human is our
greatest asset.

Tony Danza truly is
“the boss.” Despite his
busy schedule as a star
of stage and screen
as well as a New York
Times best-selling author, Danza makes giv-
ing back a priority. For
nearly a decade, he has
spearheaded the annual
ExtravaDanza
talent
show to help raise money for Northeast High
School in Philadelphia.
So what connects a
Hollywood actor to a
Philly high school in the
first place? He taught
there in 2009.
“I wanted to be a
teacher all my life and
took a year off to do it.
I’m very interested in
public education. What
made this country great
is public education, and
we all used to get it. You
hear all of these horrible
stories about what’s
going on in the public
schools and I wanted to
see for myself,” he says.
“I spent 181 days teaching 9th grade English
and I got a real different
look at what’s going on.
There are thousands of
miracles going on every
day — most of the time
without the necessary
resources. Our schools
are not being funded
to the extent that they
should be.”

teaching at Northeast
High School, he noticed

that the teachers didn’t
mingle much, and decided to put on a teacher
talent show.
“It was amazing. Just
the teachers did their
acts,” he says. “The kids
saw them in a different
light.”
After his time teaching was over, Danza
wanted to stay connected with the
school and help
raise money for
it and suggested
a student versus
teacher talent
show,
which
would become
ExtravaDanza.
“Everybody
went crazy for
it,” Danza says.
“We pitch a team
of
student acts
against teacher acts.
Two thousand people
came the first year and
we raise enough money
to keep some of the
programs [at Northeast
High School] alive.”
Danza works closely
with the school music
teacher, Jay Fluellen,
and drama teacher, The-
resa Bramwell, to produce a Hollywood-level
show with the kids.
“It’s a privilege to be
in one of these shows
and you have to live up
to that,” he says. “We
GETTY IMAGES
have auditions and people really put time into
it and go all out. I’m a
taskmaster — I want it
to be great.”
There are also quite a
few prizes to be won.
Aside from the team
trophy, that will go
home to either the student team or the teacher
team, acts can win the
first place prize ($1,000
gift card), second place
prize ($500 gift card) or
third place prize ($350
gift card). What’s
more, there’s another $500 prize
for best film.
For aspiring performers out there,
Danza
has
the following bit of advice.
“You have
to
believe
in your heart
of hearts that
even though you
can’t do what everyone else can do,
nobody can do what you
can do.”
He also believes that
education in the performing arts helps build
skills for life.
“So much of what
this is, is what life is.
They’re in a show that is
COUPON

bigger than themselves.
They have to learn to let
their guard down, speak
clearly, stand up straight
and look people in the
eye. Performance is developed when you perform,” he says.
The
ExtravaDanza
with Tony Danza comes
to Northeast High School
on Thursday, April 26.

“Beirut” was supposed to
be Tony Gilroy’s sophomore film as a writer.
Gilroy, who has since
written all three of Matt
Damon’s “Bourne” films,
wrote and directed “The
Bourne Legacy,” and
was nominated for an
Academy Award for both
his writing and directing
on “Michael Clayton,”
actually started work on
“Beirut” back in 1991,
a full year before his
debut effort as a screenwriter, “The Cutting
High drama, set at a breaking point in global politics. BLEECKER STREET
Edge,” was released.
There are many
reasons why it took
27 years for “Beirut”
to make it to the bigscreen.

Why did it take so long
to be released?
The first film I made,
“Cutting Edge,” had Robert Cork as producer, and
he had been in the CIA.
And we had a lot of political conversations on the
set of that film. He really
loved the idea of making
a film about a negotiator,
which we thought was a
cool idea. We looked for
a place to set it, decided
on Lebanon, and then
I looked for a moment
in time in Lebanese history where I could set a
fictional story in the most
realistic way possible —
the most tense moment.
After a lot of research
that seemed to me to be
the winter of 1982. The
script was really popular.
And it was really good for
me. Really important. A
lot of people got interested. But there was always
something holding it
back. A lot of people were
having a hard time with
the politics at the time.
Which is hard to believe
now when you see it. But
the politics were a little
bit red-lined for people
in 1991.
What was so
problematic?
The politics are, as
messed up as Beirut was
in 1982, as horrifying as
they were after the Civil
War. This film is set before religious fundamentalism — before religion
is involved, before suicide
bombings. It’s before
Hezbollah, it’s before
Hamas.
Did you do a rewrite
when you found out
the film was finally
being made?
I never believed they
Did you notice anything
in your early writing
that you were envious
of now?
When I went back and
looked at it, this movie
is the beginning for me.
It’s not hard to trace the
genetic material of this
movie — it pulls forward
to a lot of things that I’ve
done. “Proof of Life” is a
fictional journalistic account of a very real thing,
which also includes a
kidnapping. “Michael
Clayton” and this share
some of the same issues.
Even the “Bourne” films,
trying to get down on
the ground and making
a thriller that is on a human scale. It didn’t feel
alien to me. When we
finally went to Sundance
and saw it with an audience it really felt unusual.
Just because no-one else
is doing this right now.
Usually a film like this
would be on Netflix now.
It will be really interesting to see if people will
leave their homes to
come and see a film like
this. That’s what you are
really hoping. It helps
that we’re unusual. This
genre, this aisle of the
book store has moved
to the small screen. You
need a convergence of a
certain number of things
to even get it to a mass
audience in a theatre.
It really doesn’t hurt
to have Jon Hamm. His
performance is. ... HE is a
movie star. We’ll find out
shortly if people will put
down their remote and
head out to the theater.
“Beirut” will released on
April 11.

were going to get the
movie made. Even when
they got Jon Hamm and
Brad Anderson. I just
never really thought it
would happen. Especially
when they told me how
much they were going to
make it for. I told them,
‘You can’t make the film
for that much money. I
don’t know how you do
that.’ When it finally got
real I said I needed to go
back in and take a pass
at it. And it was a very
interesting thing to collaborate with yourself. It
was really odd. I rewrote
in a gentle way. I didn’t
change the plot. I didn’t
add any new characters.
I did only think it would
take a week but it took
me much longer. I really
had to dig in. I’m a lot
more experienced now. I
know a lot more. I made
it a lot more truthful. A
lot more simple. More
actor-friendly. It was
really interesting. I also
had to make sure that
all of my journalism was
correct.
It really feels different
from a modern film —
it’s complicated, and isn’t
spoon fed.
There used to be a lot
of movies like this! There
were a lot of movies like
this at the time. It was
not an unusual script at
the time, other than the
fact that the politics were
a little on the money.
“The Year of Living
Dangerously” was on
everyone’s mind at this
point. It’s more unusual
now.

GREGORY WAKEMAN
Gregory.Wakeman@metro.us
Despite being shot two
years ago, “Wildling” is
being released at the exact
right time.
Because while it’s a
creature feature, Fritz
Bohm’s directorial debut
is rich in subtext about
womanhood and the
complications that come
with that growth, both
from within and from the
male gaze.
“There’s a real market
for this movie right now,”
Bel Powley recently told
me over the phone. The
British actress plays the
lead character, Anna, in
“Wildling,” who, after being kidnapped as a young
girl, is given injections to
keep her from puberty.
Once she escapes she suddenly goes through this
transformation, and then
much, much more.
What first attracted you
to “Wildling”?
I’m always attracted to
stuff that kind of subverts
the norm. I felt like when
I first read “Wildling,” it

kind of split the traditional horror movie concept
on its head. It was a
female central character,
she is the beast, and we
sympathize with the
beast. Also, for me the
movie is representative
of what it’s like to grow
up in current society
as a woman. Once you
go through puberty as
women we’re faceless.
The obstacles in this film
are representative of
society and the obstacles
that young women have
to deal with. It was really
the subtext that attracted
me to it rather than the
specifics of the role.

REC RDS
ANY SIZE COLLECTION
Was that a discussion
you originally had with
the director?
I read the script before
I met Fritz, and that
metaphor immediately
struck me. So when
I first spoke to him I
wanted to make sure
that was what he meant.
If it was just a normal
werewolf movie then I
wasn’t interested. When
I spoke to him he just
basically repeated everything I had thought
back to me. We were
completely on the same
page with what the
movie was about from
the start.
There’s a particularly important line of,
‘You’re not sick, you’re a
woman,’ which the film
seems to play off of.
Totally. As young women
as soon as you reach puberty you are not taught
how to embrace your
body and embrace what
is happening to you.
You are taught to hide
it and control it. You are
told how to look, how
to have sex, who to have
sex with. The metamorphosis of Anna into this
beast represents what
it is like being a young
woman and having all
this stuff happen and

what is happening. You
I know that as a young
actress you worked on
children’s shows in England, was being exposed
to the male gaze at
such a young age what
piqued your interest in
this subject matter?
I think you can see
in the projects that I
choose that I deal with
it by acting against it.
So rather than choosing
projects that force me to
fit into the box that society wants me to be in as
an actor I am constantly
looking for projects that
are the opposite of that.

Your slow cooker still works in spring
HOME
These “impress your friends” recipes are easy enough to throw together before work and enjoy when you come home. LUCY E. COUSINS
There are few things better than walking into your home and smelling a delicious meal you prepared earlier. All you need to do is get
chopping in the morning, set your timer and then come home to a perfectly cooked meal. What more could you want?
We asked nutritionist Zoe Bingley Pullin for her top 3 healthy slow cooker recipes, but with a twist to take the genre from the traditional winter warmer to spring. Sure, you can make regular chili in a slow cooker, but with a few unusual ingredients (from healthy or
Whole Foods stores) you can create dinners that will impress even the toughest critics as the temperatures start to rise.
Brown Rice and Seaweed Congee
Lemon Myrtle Roasted Chicken
with Lime Stuffing
Congee
1 cup brown rice, uncooked
8 cups vegetable stock or miso paste
1 tbsp ginger, grated
¼ cup wakame (edible seaweed), soaked in ¼ cup water
½ cup dulse flakes (sea lettuce flakes), soaked in ¼ cup water
Rub
1 large organic chicken,
trimmed
2 tbsp ground lemon myrtle
1 tbsp dried marjoram
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp extra olive oil
Toppings
Sesame roasted nori
Boiled eggs
Alfalfa sprouts
Stuffing
3 slices multigrain bread
1 small Spanish onion
1 egg
4 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp seeded mustard
2 tsp sea salt
½ bunch flat leaf parsley,
washed
4 limes, cut in half
Method
1. Rinse the rice under cold water and drain well (preferably overnight).
2. Combine stock, rice and ginger in your slow cooker and cook on high
for 5 hours. The rice is ready when it looks like a thick soup — extra
liquid may be required during the cooking process.
3. Fold in the wakame and dulse. Spoon rice into individual bowls and
top with crumbled sesame, roasted nori, boiled eggs and alfalfa sprouts.

Tip: For extra crunch, top with chopped roasted tamari
almonds. If wakame is not available in supermarkets,
try a health food store.
Method
1. Preheat oven to 350. In a
small bowl mix together all
of the rub ingredients, then
rub evenly over the chicken.
2. In a food processor add
all of the stuffing ingredients — except the limes
— and blend to a rough
consistency.
3. Using latex gloves, stuff
the chicken. Then place the
chicken breast-side up on
a rack in a slow cooker and
cook on high for 4 hours (or
low for 7 hours). To test if
cooked, stick a skewer into
the chicken and the juice
should run clear.

Transform your
rental property in
six simple steps
Just because you live
month-to-month
doesn’t mean you have
to settle for gross.
LUCY E. COUSINS
letters@metro.us
There are some definite
benefits to renting. For a
start, you don’t have a gigantic mortgage, you can
rent in neighborhoods
you could never actually
afford to live in (read: this
entire city), and if you get
bored, well, you just can
just up and leave. But just
because you’re renting,
doesn’t mean you have
to put up with that sticky
carpet from the ’70s and
the police station blinds
on the windows. There
are many ways you can
turn your rental into your
dream home — here are
six for you to try this
weekend.
1. Decorate with material
If your landlord’s a
stickler about nails or
paint, use large pieces of
material to completely
change the feel of a room.
They can be used as a
focal point in the living
room, as a bedhead in
the bedroom and can also
be used to separate areas
(such as dining or living).
Sew on some doublesided tape to the top two
corners (or use adhesive)
to secure the material
without damaging the
walls. Our tip? Make sure
you wash them every
season.
2. Play with color
Interior stylists are not
afraid to add a little color
to a room, and a bright table or bookshelf can work
really well in a kitchen
or bedroom, especially
if they don’t get a great
deal of natural light. The
key with working with
more than one color is to
design a palette of only
a 2-4. That said, it can be
a good idea to highlight
one accent color that
pulls the interior design
together in each room.
3. Make an art
feature wall
While you might have to
forgo heavier prints and
large mirrors as a renter,
you definitely don’t have
to forget about art in
general. With lightweight
frames available at Target
and IKEA, for example,
your poster art can still
take center stage. Invest
in reusable wall hooks
that use double-sided
tape, and bunch artworks
together to create a feature wall. Make sure you
only do this on one wall
in each room; otherwise
the effort will be overpowering and will make
the space seem smaller.
4. Use plants for design
Not only do plants detox
the air, studies have
shown that they can also
increase productivity and
concentration by 15 percent! But aside from the
health benefits, plants
can instantly change the
appearance of a room.
Ignore any delicate species and instead choose a
hardy plant with dramatically shaped leaves, such
as a Swiss Cheese plant
(Monstera deliciosa) in
a vase of water, or opt
for plants that can be
grouped together like
cacti so they create a
design feature.
5. Get creative
on the walls
If you’re sick of your
roommate/partner’s
taste in art, try removable stickers. If you love
travel, for example, you
could stick up a wall-towall world map. Or if you
want something more
abstract, play around
with metallic colored dots
and shapes to create your
own masterpiece. These
work best in the living
room or the bedrooms,
as humidity makes it too
hard in the kitchen and
bathroom.
6. Add statement
lighting
Let’s be honest, the lampshades in most rentals
haven’t been changed in
four presidencies. But you
don’t have to live with
dusty old decor. Go crazy
with statement lighting.
Choose big and bold
designs that will instantly
uplift your space. Make
sure you use shades that
No artwork? No problem. A splash of color

can easily be fitted and

The best postseason series
in North American sports,
the NHL’s Stanley Cup
Playoffs, gets underway on
Wednesday night.
That’s right, I didn’t
stutter.
It’s far and away better than the MLB, NFL and
NBA playoffs (in my opinion).
More than half of the
league’s 31 teams, 16 in
total, have emerged from
the regular season one

Division while the Buffalo
Sabres were one of the
worst teams in hockey.
But one of the best
things about the league is
the parity involved. There
are seven different teams
competing in the postseason compared to last year
and every matchup holds
the promise of an upset. That includes the Vegas Golden Knights, the
expansion team that incredibly holds the No. 2
seed in the Western Conference after putting up a
historic 109-point season.
They are looking to become the first expansion
team since the 1967-68 St.

up the best season since
his MVP-winning 2011-12
campaign while Phil Kessel recorded 92 points, 12
more than his previous
carer high. It allowed Sidney Crosby to be Sidney
Crosby as the Pens captain
recorded 89 points for a
second-straight season. That trio will be
enough to cancel out the
mercurial Claude Giroux,
who finished second in
the league with 102 points
(34 G, 68 A).
CAPITALS vs.
BLUE JACKETS
THE PICK: CAPS IN 6
Expectations are far lower
for the Capitals compared
to year’s past, which
might actually help the
underachieving Eastern
Conference power. Alex Ovechkin can
still control any game on
any given night despite
becoming an elder statesman of the league at 32.
He led the NHL in goals
scored (49) for the sixth
time in the last seven seasons, further adding to
his Hall of Fame resume.
His presence along with
Nicklas Backstrom and
Evgeny Kuznetsov’s will
be enough to fuel the Capitals past the Blue Jackets,
who have scored the second-fewest goals among
playoff teams this year.
BRUINS vs.
MAPLE LEAFS
THE PICK: LEAFS IN 7
From the middle of December to the middle of
March, there wasn’t a
hotter team in the league
than the Bruins. A 27-53 streak over 35 games
throttled them toward the
top of the Eastern Conference, but they might have
peaked too early. In the final month of
the season, Boston has
come back down to earth,
finishing the year 7-4-4.
They’re meeting a Ma-
ple Leafs team anchored
by a dynamic trio of
Auston Matthews, Mitch
Marner, and William Nylander. All of whom are 21
years old or younger and
recorded at least 60 points
this season.
LIGHTNING vs.
DEVILS
THE PICK: BOLTS IN 6
Tampa’s star captain Steven Stamkos is questionable after missing four
of the final seven games
with a lower-body injury. But it’s been the Nikita
Kucherov show for most
of the year as he finished
third in the league with
100 points. The problem
is that the Bolts have faltered down the stretch,
losing five of their last
eight. To make things
more interesting, the Devils swept the season series
and have been red-hot
with wins in 10 of their
last 14. New Jersey is anchored
by Taylor Hall, a contender for the Hart Trophy
after putting up a careerhigh 39 goals and 54 assists for 93 points.
JETS vs.
WILD
THE PICK: JETS IN 6
Winnipeg possesses the
most high-powered attack
in the Western Conference as the Jets racked up
277 goals this season. And
they might have the best
one-two punch of right
wingers the league has to
offer.
Blake Wheeler recorded a career-high 91 points
in his age 31 season to anchor Winnipeg’s top line
while second-year man
and 19-year-old Patrik
Laine finished second in
the NHL with 44 goals.
The Jets offense will be
too much for the Wild
to handle considering
they will be without one
of their top defenseman
Ryan Suter, who suffered
a broken leg toward the
end of the regular season. PREDATORS vs.
AVALANCHE
THE PICK: PREDS IN 5
On the back of Nathan
MacKinnon, who put up
by far the best season of
his career with 39 goals
and 58 assists, the Avalanche shocked the league
and finished fourth in the
Central Division.
Unfortunately
for
them, they’ll be running
into a buzzsaw that is
the President’s Trophywinning Nashville Predators who are coming off a
regulars season in which
they put up a franchiserecord 117 points.
SHARKS vs.
DUCKS
THE PICK: DUCKS IN 7
Both the Sharks and
Ducks
hold
top-five
penalty-killing units this
league, which puts an
added amount of stress
upon 5-on-5 play. San Jose
will be without veteran
playmaker Joe Thornton,
at least for the early portions of this season, which
is only going to put more
pressure on Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski. They’ll garner most
of the attention from the
NHL’s fourth-best defense
which allowed just 216
goals this year. Though
most of the Ducks’ success should be attributed
to the play of goalie John
Gibson, whose 2.43 goals
against average kept Anaheim’s season intact when
injuries swept through
the locker room. GOLDEN KNIGHTS vs.
KINGS
THE PICK: KINGS IN 6
There is no denying that
the Knights have put together one of the best
stories of the year, a team
comprised of cast-offs banning together and becoming one of the top units in
the league.
However, the Knights
have
been
mediocre
down the stretch, dropping seven of their final
13 games. They’ll be taking on a Kings team that is
defensively sound, allowing the fewest goals in the
league and has a championship core that won a
pair of Cups. Veterans like
Anze Kopitar and Dustin
Brown, who both had career years, will find a way
to come up big when the
lights shine brightest.

Things to watch
for when Flyers
face Penguins
It’s Flyers vs. Penguins. It’s
Sidney Crosby vs. Claude
Giroux. And it’s in the
first round of the Stanley
Cup playoffs. Let’s face it.
This is the matchup every
Flyers fan was hoping for
– at least in their heart.
OK, maybe not. Maybe
fans didn’t want to draw
the reigning two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, who also swept the
four-game season series
against the Flyers. But if
history is any indication,
this series is gonna be
good. This is gonna be fun.
Let’s take a look at the top
10 storylines:
1
The quest for a
three-peat
No matter how you slice
it, the Flyers are heavy
underdogs against the
Penguins, who are out
to become the first NHL
team to win three straight
titles since the New
York Islanders won four
straight from 1980-83.
2Rusty
goaltenders
Each team’s starting
goalie is still trying to find
a groove since returning
from an injury. The Flyers’
Brian Elliott, who was out
for six weeks with a core
muscle injury, was shaky
in the two final regular
season games he played.
Pittsburgh’s Matt Murray
has posted a pedestrian 4-4
mark and allowed 27 goals
after missing almost a
month with a concussion.
Sidney Crosby
3Malkin
and Evgeni
The former is still one
of the best players in
the league and has 93
points in 63 career games
against the Flyers, while
the latter is a legitimate
MVP candidate this year.
5
Flyers’
discipline
Staying out of the penalty
box is a no-brainer for the
Flyers, who owned the
third worst penalty kill
in the NHL. Meanwhile,
the Penguins finished
with the best power-play
percentage.
6
However ...
The Penguins allowed the most goals for
all playoff teams in 5-on-5
play. Meanwhile, the Flyers finished in the middle
of the pack.
7Defensive depth
The third defensive
pairing for both teams
is a liability. Each coach
will try to avoid leaving
the weak units on the ice
against their opponent’s
top lines.
8
Penguins’ speed
In the four meetings
this season, the Flyers
struggled to match the
Penguins quickness,
especially in transition.
The Flyers must make
sure their defensemen
don’t get too caught out
of position and forwards
must be mindful of costly
turnovers in the neutral
zone.
youth
9Flyers’
Depending on lineups,
seven first- or second-year
players will be making
their postseason debuts
for the Flyers. It will be
an invaluable experience
for each one but the playoff inexperience could
come back to haunt the
Flyers.

Would Eagles be smart to move
down in draft, take running back?
Is one of the
draft’s top running backs a fit in
Philadelphia?
Eagles’
running backs
Jay Ajayi
408 yards, TD in 2017
EVAN MACY
evan.macy@metro.us
The NFL draft is less than
three weeks away, which
means there is not a lot
of time left to pontificate
about the Eagles draft
strategies.
As is known, the
Eagles want to get
more picks — preferably on the second day.
The Birds have a first
rounder (32 overall), and
then nothing until the
fourth round. It would
make sense for Philly
and Howie Roseman to
relent the 32nd overall
pick if it can net them a
pair of selections on the
second day in rounds
two and three.
There may be a strategical reason to do this.
Not only gathering more
picks, but targeting particular players may be
reason enough for the
Birds to maneuver backwards in the draft.
ESPN’s Tim McManus
examined this briefly in

321 yards, 6 total TDs
in 2017

a recent column, noting
that there are a bunch of
backs slated to go early
in the second round that
would be perfect fits for
the Eagles.
Currently, Philly has
Corey Clement and Jay
Ajayi on the roster as 53man shoe-ins. The team
also still has Wendell
Smallwood and Donnel
Pumphrey slated to report
LEGAL
SERVICES
to training camp. There is
speculation that Darren
Sproles could return, but
even so, they are short
of the four-man running
back corps that helped
fuel their Super Bowl run.
Adding one of the
second round projected
backs makes sense, and
LSU’s Derrius Guice,
USC’s Ronald Jones and
SDSU’s Rashaad Penny
are good fits in that slot.
Recently Metro projected that the Eagles
might try and snag Guice
at 32. But if they can still
get him a few picks later
and also pad their asset
haul, it’s a good move.
According to most draft
boards, the Eagles’ other
needs don’t really fit
into their current slotted
pick — as there is a big
divide in offensive line talent
that may force
the Eagles to
address that
area
later.
A
running
back early
in the second round
looks to be
the leading
theory.

Aries Think before you speak. You’ll
end up in a compromising position
if you are too pushy or will not listen to reason. Nurture relationships
instead of pushing people away.
Libra Personal and emotional changes
can be made. Home improvements
should help cut your overhead or
bring greater peace and comfort to
you and those you live with.
Taurus You’ll find it difficult to sit still
and wait out an uncertain situation.
Try not to disclose any information
that could be used against you. Don’t
act or say something impulsively.
Scorpio Make love and romance your
priorities. Changes you make that update your image or encourage you to
be fit and healthy will make you feel
good and will draw compliments.
Gemini A physical change will make
you feel good about the way you look
and what you have to offer. Don’t
impose on someone who isn’t up for
as lively a time as you are.
Sagittarius Look for personal opportunities instead of offering to do the
dirty work for someone else’s benefit.
Put your energy into your home, family and self-improvements.
Cancer An unexpected change will
catch you off-guard. Don’t feel you
must get involved in something risky.
Acknowledge what others are doing,
but go your own way.
Capricorn Refuse to let anyone push
you into something you shouldn’t
do or put unreasonable demands on
you. Back away from anyone who
appears to be unpredictable.
Leo Changes at home that will add
to your comfort are highlighted, but
before you begin, make sure you have
the approval of anyone who will be
affected by your plans.
Aquarius Make positive changes to
the way you handle your money. A
financial gain, gift or offer should be
protected from someone trying to
take advantage of your good fortune.
Virgo Avoid people who are unpredictable or who promote poor habits.
Focus on making personal and physical improvements and paying closer
attention to good health and exercise.
Pisces You’ll desire personal change
and should consider doing something
to update your physical appearance.
It will draw attention with someone
special. EUGENIA LAST
