Gov. Christie will lead a state delegation to Canada for two days next month, taking his second foreign trip in several months as he weighs a run for president in 2016. The Dec. 4-5 trip will include visits to Calgary, Toronto, and the capital, Ottawa, with an aim of strengthening business ties between New Jersey and Canada, the state's largest trading partner, Christie's office said Monday. In particular, the Republican governor will focus on the energy sector, his office said - as he did during a September trade mission he led to Mexico, where he gave a speech calling for greater investment in energy-related infrastructure to bolster a "North American energy renaissance.

FILM DIRECTOR Rupesh Paul , who sparked anger earlier this year with plans for "The Vanishing Act," a love triangle-themed movie about the Malaysia Airlines plane disappearance, says he's changing the plot to a thriller so he won't offend the families of the missing. Yeah, that should do it. Can't imagine why a grieving relative wouldn't appreciate that thoughtful gesture. "We respect the sentiments of all those who experienced loss due to the tragedy, and the intention was never to benefit out of it," the Indian director said.

IS HOT 107.9 changing formats? The radio trades seem to think so. RadioInsight is reporting that the Radio One Urban-owned station has laid off its staff and is changing its format to classic hip-hop and its name to Boom 107.9, in the same vein as Houston's Boom 92.1. The radio trade publication notes that the urls BoomPhilly.com and Boom1079Philly.com have both been registered as domains, redirecting back to the Hot1079philly.com website. AllAccess.com, another radio trade, is reporting similar news.

WHO'S GOING to buy a new iPad? The market is saturated! Cheaper tablets do the same things! Gizmo Guy was laughing and wincing over such "expert" scoffings as he plunked down big bucks for a new iPad Air 2 last weekend. The tablet supplants my first-generation iPad, bought way back when . . . in 2010. Truth is, I wasn't hankering for an upgrade to the half-pound lighter (and trimmer) newbie. Circumstances pushed me into a corner, with no choice but to buy or bail on the increasingly integrated "family" of Apple products and services that rule my roost.

DeMeco Ryans last played in Houston on Jan. 7, 2012. It was his first playoff game after spending six years trying to help turn the Texans into contenders. He was their captain, a popular player who started every game he ever played in a Texans uniform. By the end of March, he was traded to Philadelphia. Three seasons later, Ryans returns to Houston with the Eagles to play against the team that shipped him away. A combination of football economics and a changing roster prompted the move, although there were questions about whether Ryans could return to Pro Bowl form after he suffered an Achilles tendon injury in 2010.

In the late 1980s, when moguls like John Malone and Ralph Roberts fought over cable-TV franchises and when a new cable channel seemed to be born every few days, attendance at the national trade show topped 30,000 participants, all swapping gossip and making deals. In addition to that event, thousands more attended five regional cable-industry trade shows. All that changed over the next two decades with the industry consolidation that pared ownership down to a few companies - the biggest among them Roberts' Comcast Corp.

Arnett Moultrie was at 76ers practice on Monday afternoon, finishing the two-hour session with a light rebounding drill. It proved to be the last action of his tumultuous Sixers career. Moultrie, 23, was traded to the New York Knicks later in the day for a 2019 second-round pick and Travis Outlaw. Both Outlaw and Moultrie were immediately waived by their new teams. The move creates salary-cap space for the Knicks as Moultrie is due to make almost $2 million less this season than Outlaw.

Eagles safety Nate Allen took responsibility Sunday for the error in coverage on the 75-yard touchdown that decided a 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Before the game, Pro Football Talk reported that the Eagles were trying to upgrade Allen's spot at safety with the trade deadline approaching Tuesday. Eagles coach Chip Kelly denied that report and pledged support of Allen, while downplaying the idea that the Eagles will be active at the deadline. "A lot of times, the people who float that are the people who want their safeties picked up," Kelly said Monday.

Union CEO and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz has become a lightning rod for criticism of a team that missed the Major League Soccer playoffs for the fourth time in its five-year existence. Sakiewicz has heard the criticism loud and clear, both at games and in cyberspace. He discounts the common perception that he has called the personnel shots for a Union team that was eliminated from the playoffs with two games remaining. The Union finished 10-12-12 for 42 points - seven points out of the fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The Los Angeles Kings felt they were getting close to a championship and needed a veteran or two to put them over the top. The Flyers wanted to get younger and faster. And, so, the teams pulled the trigger on a blockbuster 2011 deal that sent captain Mike Richards to the Kings for Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and a second-round draft pick that the Flyers later dealt for Nick Grossmann. Ron Hextall, now the Flyers' general manager, was the Kings' assistant GM at the time, and he remembers vividly why the deal was attractive from Los Angeles' perspective.
