TED READER - Celebrity Chef -
Ted Reader is an award-winning chef and food entertainer, who's parlayed his passion for food into a culinary tour de force that includes more than a dozen cook books, shelves of food products, live culinary performances, TV and radio cooking shows and appearances as well as culinary demonstrations, a catering company and teaching. Known for his wild hair, pyrotechnic charm and fearless culinary spirit, it's no surprise that GQ magazine labeled him the "crazy Canuck barbecue kingpin." The dude just loves to cook! Ted's quest for creating "real food for real people" has seen this high-profile culinary barbecue guru demonstrate his flair for grilling in all venues from swanky ball rooms to the Pacific Ocean to a downtown Toronto parking lot. Today, he owns more than 75 barbecues, grills and smokers in all shapes and sizes and never goes anywhere without one in the back of his truck. Says Ted: "You can cook anything on the grill. All you need is some imagination and a 'have no fear' attitude. I love grilling and barbecuing because it brings out the natural flavors of food. It's all about the grilling, the glazing, the dipping and the licking." Before his career really took off, Ted gained kitchen experience, working at such notable spots as the Old School House Restaurant in Brantford. The barbecue became Ted's instrument of choice during a summer job at a fishing and hunting resort in Northern Ontario. He was Executive Chef for four years at the Skydome Hotel in Toronto and worked as team chef for a number of teams on the CART champion car racing circuit. -

DR WILLIAM SCHNEID - Supreme Court Upholds Mandatory Employment Eligibility Checks -
The United States Supreme Court voted today to uphold a controversial Arizona law that punishes employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. In a 5-3 vote split on ideological lines, the decision maintains an Arizona requirement for businesses to use a federal verification system to check job candidates' immigration status. The law in question is separate fron the more recent and deeply controversial Arizona law championed by current Governor Jan Brewer which requires police to ask anyone they stop about their immigration status if they have a "reasonable suspicion" they are in the country illegally. That law has been been put on hold while legal challenges work their way through the courts. Brewer is lobbying to skip the Ninth Circuit Court and bring the case before the Supreme Court. A loss there would be a tremendous blow to immigrants rights groups, who so far have garnered the support of everyone from the Phoenix Suns to Shakira in opposing the law. In today's case, Chief Justice Roberts' 27-page opinion for the court's conservative majority states "that the Arizona regulation does not otherwise conflict with federal law" as argued by parties' opposing the law. The liberal justices--Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer--represented the interests of a coalition of organizations that included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, civil and workers rights groups as well as the Obama administration. Those opposing the Arizona law argue that the federal Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 forbids states from enacting any laws that prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants. In his dissenting opinion Justice Breyer wrote that the law will impose "burdens on lawful employment" and further could result in "unlawful discrimination." The law upheld, the Legal Arizona Workers Act was originally signed by then-Governor Janet Napolitano in 2007 -
