DONALD TRUMP HAS attempted to school Justin Trudeau on tariffs (read what it means to your wallet in “Trade War,” page 58), Kim Jong-un on nukes, Emmanuel Macron on the European Union, Angela Merkel on Russia, NATO on burden sharing and the Brits on his 11 per cent approval rating there. If only there was a continuing education course for “Leader of the Free World.” A proudly proclaimed low-information chief executive, most adept at creating his own version of facts, often incorrect, President Trump has referred to himself as “a very smart person,” a “stable genius” and someone who is his own best counsel. Will this 72-year-old ever learn? Even if the spirit is willing, the flesh would not be weak. Reports from the realm of neuroplasticity tell us that the…

“The subtle shift in weather portending the indelible sense of things changing,” says social columnist and pop culture decoder Shinan Govani. His most recent tutelage: a wine course, about which he says, “I learned how to properly swirl and sniff!” A regular contributor to Zoomer, in this issue he muses on an icon’s graceful exit for “A Wintour’s Tale” (pg. 54) and cruises ancient atolls for “Greek Isle Idyll” (pg. 76). After graduate studies “many years ago,” economist and Financial Post columnist Andrew Allentuck has gone back to school a few times, but as a lecturer – his unequivocal preference to that of scholar. His newest book, Cherished Fortune: Make Your Wealth Your Business, which he co-wrote will be published later this year. In “Trade War” (pg. 58), he examines tariff…

Zoomerang “PASS THE WHAT?” Just read Moses’ Last Word/First Word about the noise in eating establishments [“Silence Is Golden,” June]. I’ll be looking for places with the ANPL sign! I went to dinner today with four friends and couldn’t hear the man seated at the end of our table. We’d just been to a movie, so this was our opportunity to catch up with each other and discuss the movie. The restaurant not only made this a challenge but left my ears ringing for hours afterward. Recent studies show that people order more food when they are in a loud environment, but I really feel for the hearing health of the staff who have to spend eight hours in these environments – they’re going to be hearing impaired before their time! —Cynthia MacDougall,…

Contrary to popular musical sentiment, they paved paradise and put up a promenade Saskatoon pays tribute to homegrown star Joni Mitchell, 74, by naming a waterfront promenade after her. Well, this explains why all the seniors curve into a downward dog position when they bend over to feed the animals The 52-year-old leader of a Chinese farming village with an average age of 65 keeps residents healthy by teaching them yoga. Paul McCartney, 76, joined a local wedding band in performing the Beatles tune “I Saw Her Standing There” at his nephew’s nuptials Unfortunately, creative differences compelled Paul to announce he was leaving the band and starting a new group with musicians playing a birthday party across the hall. Literally a “Hail Mary” approach to greater longevity A recent study suggests that religious…

tv for grown-ups

WHILE MILLENNIALS find shows and podcasts on YouTube, the boomers and gen-Xers who watched TV in the ’80s and ’90s are the ones keeping it alive now. Hence, the craze for reboots and the resurrection of familiar faces and plots. This fall, there are three new reboots on the network lineup alone (the sense of déjà vu on the medium being only slightly diminished by the self-inflicted cancellation of Roseanne on ABC). And mid-season (January approximately), Canadians will be getting in on the act, when CBC relaunches Street Legal, with original star Cynthia Dale stepping in as star and executive producer. Here are 10 new fall shows with these old demographics written all over them, starting with three reboots from our past, one with its original cast. 1 MURPHY BROWN (CBS) Face it, we all…
