24 hours Vancouverrors - April & May 2013

It's been a while since errors from the pages of 24 hours Vancouver have been featured here, and it's not because those pages have seen perfect writing; it's because I've been accumulating a whole bunch and now it's time to share them. First up, from "Predicting big things from emotional leader Kesler in the playoffs" on April 23, is the above mess. I think it can be solved by removing the is, but don't hold me to that. A couple of hyphens, in full-speed and power-move, would also help. Then,

in "Millennials + managers = meltdowns!" on May 6, gets contains an apostrophe and it absolutely should not contain an apostrophe. Then,

in the photo caption for "Pill bottles debut at advance polls" on May 9, prescription was misspelled. That was on page 4,

and on page 6, in the photo caption for "Riot couple avoids jail time" on May 9, sentenced was misspelled. Then,

in "Hader latest castmemeber to announce SNL departure" on May 15, there was a blatant misspelling in the headline. How was that missed?! Not only is castmemeber not a word, neither is castmember. It should be cast member. Then,
in "Modern thrives on relatability" on May 22, Cam is not Jay's son on Modern Family. Mitchell is Jay's son, and Cam is Mitchell's partner. Good effort there, writer. Then,

later in the same article, it was actually Cam who returned to teaching. Good effort again there, writer. Then,
on the same page as those Modern Family errors is this fun alternative spelling of "Gangnam Style" by Psy, which should also be in quotation marks instead of italicized. Click an image to enlarge it.
