Senator: This Bill Will Help Victims McCaskill confident her military sex-assault measure is best solution Washington Sen. Claire McCaskill’s bill to overhaul the way sexual-assault cases are handled in the military has routinely been described as more modest, conservative, watered-down and incremental than her Senate colleague Kirsten Gillibrand’s measure. The legislation pushed by Gillibrand, D-N.Y., which would have taken the prosecution of sex crimes in the military out of the chain of command and put it in the hands of military prosecutors, was defeated Thursday. McCaskill’s bill is expected to pass today, a result widely seen as an affront to victims by a Congress that is still too male and overawed by military commanders to meaningfully challenge them. “I’m conﬁdent the choice the Senate made today is the right one for victims of sexual assault,” McCaskill said Thursday, according to The Hill. A former prosecutor, McCaskill CHARLES DHARAPAK (AP) “The most frustrating thing about this is the narrative that, ‘Whose side are you on, the victim’s or the commander’s?’ That’s oﬀensive.” — SEN.

McCaskill says that taking the prosecution of sex crimes in the military out of the chain of command would have resulted in fewer prosecutions, not more, because prosecutors, she said, “get seduced by a win-loss record, and don’t want to take a loser to court.” Under Gillibrand’s bill, if a prosecutor doesn’t want to take the case to trial, that’s the end of it, whereas under McCaskill’s, if the prosecutor wants to take the case and the commander does not, it’s automatically referred to the civilian secretary of that branch of the service for review. In cases where neither the prosecutor nor the commander wants to bring the case, it’s also referred to the secretary. McCaskill said she’s been bruised by the pronouncements of other Democratic women in the Senate, especially Gillibrand and Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. But it was her ally on the bill, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., whom she seems to have wanted to Get rid of the “good soldier” defense that takes factors such as the service record of the accused into account.

President Barack Obama’s 21-point victory among 18-29-yearolds in 2008 — and his 16-point margin four years later — showed that he had an ability to motivate and unite an age group that has been the perennial sleeping giant of American politics. But Republicans held out hope that without Obama leading the ticket, millennials would be back in play in 2016. A cursory read of Pew’s survey seems to suggest that those hopes have merit. Half of all millennials describe themselves as political independents, more than 10 percentage points higher than any other generation tested by Pew. It’s your Sell Your House for Less Than You Owe!

In a move suggesting Moscow remains deﬁant to Western demands to de-escalate the crisis, a Ukrainian Black Sea border station was surrounded by Russian troops around 6 a.m. local time.

(AP) Pistorius’ Character on Trial Pretoria, South Africa The testimony in the ﬁrst week of Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial was jaw-dropping at times, and more riveting evidence is expected as the prosecution seeks to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the doubleamputee athlete intentionally shot dead his girlfriend. Pistorius’ once-inspiring life story unraveled as witnesses testiﬁed about his history of anger, inﬁdelity and recklessness with guns, and his suspicious behavior on the night prosecutors allege the Olympian murdered his girlfriend and tried to cover it up. A neighbor, who is a doctor, described in detail the grisly scene he was confronted with when he recounted how he could not ﬁnd any signs of life on Steenkamp’s bloody body. A former girlfriend, who said she was 17 when she started dating Pistorius in 2011, said he carried a gun with him at all times and once shot it out of a car after an altercation with police. Through tears, Samantha Taylor also testiﬁed that Pistorius cheated on her twice, the second time with the woman he killed. The defense has sought to poke holes in the prosecution’s case about the sequence of events: It says it can prove that Steenkamp did not scream before the shots and could not have screamed during them, as witnesses have said.

But severe weather like last Monday’s snowstorm turns his hourlong bus commute into a longer, less predictable ordeal. Last mont h, when Snochi dropped 7 to 18 inches of snow in the region, Ramos found himself standing at a cold, icy bus stop for 30 minutes only to ﬁnd out that bus service had been suspended. It took him three hours to get to work by taking the Metro and walking, and he was two hours late. This winter’s 25 storms have brought ice, snow, sleet and the dreaded wintry mix, creating travel nightmares for commuters. But perhaps no group has been more affected than those who rely on buses. Telecommuting typically is not an option, and many of these commuters work in jobs that do $480K The estimated minimum that Metrobus loses in fares for a day of no service. Weekday ridership ranges from 420,000 to 480,000 riders on its 318 routes. But transit officials say they prefer taking the hit over having buses stranded or involved in crashes during a snowstorm. In 2010, about 70 buses were stranded during Snowmageddon.

Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said the transit agency understands the need for consistent bus service, particularly in areas without easy access to Metrorail. The agency, he said, does not take the decision to suspend service lightly. “We understand there are people who rely on the service and need it,” he said. “On the other hand, navigating a bus in bad weather conditions is not safe.” This winter, Metro has suspended all bus service at least twice. During some snowstorms, the system ran limited service on only the busiest routes. Bad weather also has caused countless delays and detours for bus riders. Before suspending service, Metro ofﬁcials consult with meteorologists and local agencies to determine the condition of the roads, Stessel said. Metrobus supervisors drive all of the bus corridors to see the conditions ﬁrsthand, he said. Riders say they understand Metro’s decision to cancel service during treacherous conditions. But what’s more difﬁcult to understand, some say, is the aftermath of such storms — dangerously icy sidewalks and snow-covered bus stops. Metro says it is responsible for clearing only the bus stops at its rail stations. There are 11,279 bus stops owned by 15 agencies. The responsibility for clearing them is complicated and confusing, which often means no one does it. LUZ L A ZO (THE WASHINGTON POST ) INFORMATION SESSION: TUESDAY, MARCH 11 6:30 PM 950 N.

M O N D AY | 0 3 . 1 0 . 2 0 1 4 | E X P R E S S | 9 Local Tragedy Prompts Distracted-Driving Bill If passed, Md. would have some of nation’s strictest penalties Annapolis Five-year-old Jake Owen played a video game as his family sat in Baltimore traffic. He excitedly announced, “Mom, I have 42 lives!” Then an SUV slammed into their car. Devin McKeiver, 23, was talking on his cellphone when he rear-ended the car. The impact killed Jake. Had McKeiver been drunk, he could have faced jail time. Instead, with his lawyer arguing at trial that McKeiver was doing something that everyone does, he was ﬁned $1,000. Now Jake’s family and others are asking Maryland lawmakers to increase penalties for drivers who cause accidents by talking or texting on a hand-held phone. The bill, known in Annapolis as “Jake’s Law,” also would require so-called distracted drivers involved in serious crashes to give police basic information about their cellphones. Privacy advocates say a forced hand-over of phone data is unnecessary and makes it even easier for police to access the massive digital trail that most Americans now have. “Being in a car accident doesn’t give law enforcement carte blanche to investigate your whole life,” said Toni Holness, a public policy associate for the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland. “And your whole life is on your phone.” But proponents say the phone data is equivalent to requiring a blood test for drivers suspected of being intoxicated. “This is the new drunk driving,” said Jake’s mother, Susan Yum. “We really need to change how society thinks about this issue.” Maryland already bans using a hand-held phone while driving in nearly all cases. Violators can be ticketed, usually about $80 for their ﬁrst offense. Those who cause a crash that kills someone can be charged with “criminally negligent man- 1 in 10 The proportion of crashes that are caused by a distracted driver, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Jake’s Law would penalize distracted drivers found guilty of causing a serious or fatal accident with up to three years in jail, a $5,000 ﬁne and 12 points on their license. Few other states have adopted such serious penalties. The bill is awaiting action by the House Judiciary Committee and the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, which held hearings on it late last month. Most lawmakers in attendance seemed sympathetic, but some questioned the need for a law that addresses cellphones but not other causes of distracted driving. In Yum’s testimony, she emphasized that McKeiver was so distracted that he traveled the distance of ﬁve football ﬁelds without seeing the traffic ahead. He was going 62 mph when he hit their car. “There’s an urgency to this,” Yum said. “If something isn’t done sooner rather than later, how many more people are going to die?” JENNA JOHNSON (THE WASHINGTON POST) In Brief WASHINGTON Metro Train Fights Leave Three Hurt, One Critically Three people were injured — one critically — in two unrelated fights aboard Metro trains Friday night, and authorities said Saturday that they were combing through surveillance footage to determine what prompted the violence.

Virginia lawmakers left Richmond on Saturday without accomplishing their most important task: passing a roughly $96 billion budget for the next two years. Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe immediately called for a special session to begin in two weeks, saying he’s hopeful that lawmakers will return ready to pass a budget that includes expanding Medicaid eligibility. Republicans in the GOP-controlled House oppose the expansion. The issue has deadlocked the House and the Democratically controlled Senate, with almost no movement during the 60-day session. (AP) Judge: Rooms Necessary For Homeless Families A D.C. Superior Court judge on Friday ordered the city to move people out of makeshift shelters for homeless families, saying the city’s communal shelters of last resort appear to be denying children needed privacy and security and could be traumatizing. In a temporary restraining order, Judge Robert Tignor told D.C. to immediately begin removing families from two recreation centers and relocate them into private rooms with insulated walls, locking doors and lights that can be turned off at night. (TWP) K 10 | E X P R E S S | 0 3 . 1 0 . 2 0 1 4 | M O N D AY Cover Story Flight’s Mystery Deepens Experts struggle for answers about a Malaysian jet’s presumed crash Beijing Vietnamese aircraft located possible debris from the vanished Malaysia Airlines plane late Sunday, including a rectangular object that could have been a door, but officials said it was too dark to confirm if they came from the airliner. Two large oil slicks, consistent with a downed jetliner, were found Saturday. Experts had been puzzled by the failure to ﬁnd debris from the airliner nearly two days after it disappeared from radar screens in the Gulf of Thailand and was presumed to have crashed with 239 people on board. The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 deepened Sunday after investigators said the plane appeared to turn around before vanishing from radar screens, and as authorities examined closed-circuit television footage of at least two passengers, apparently traveling together with stolen passports. European ofﬁcials said the passports had been stolen in Thailand within the past two years. Luigi Maraldi, 37, from Italy and Christian Kozel, 30, from Austria had initially been listed as among the plane’s passengers, but both men were subsequently found to be safe. Flight booking information showed the passengers had adjacent ticket numbers and were both booked on a subsequent ﬂight from Beijing to Amsterdam. The information has led to speculation that terrorists might have downed the ﬂight, a red-eye carrying passengers from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing that vanished from radar after midnight Saturday POSSIBLE SCENARIOS Engine Failure Loss of both engines is possible in this case, but the plane could glide for up to 20 minutes, giving pilots plenty of time to make an emergency call. When a US Airways A320 lost both of its engines in January 2009 after taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York it was at a much lower elevation. But Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger still had plenty of communications with air traffic controllers before ending the sixminute flight in the Hudson River. ANDY WONG (AP) A Bomb Several planes have been brought down including Pan Am Flight 103 between London and New York in December 1988. There was also an Air India flight in June 1985 between Montreal and London and a plane in September 1989 flown by French airline Union des Transports Aeriens which blew up over the Sahara. A Chinese relative of passengers aboard the missing plane cries Sunday as she is escorted from a hotel room in Beijing. On the Flight Of the 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board, two-thirds were Chinese, while the rest were from elsewhere in Asia, Europe and North America, including three Americans. Acclaimed Chinese calligrapher Meng Gaosheng was on board with 18 other artists plus six family members and four staff. (AP) (Friday afternoon Eastern time). Yet the documents are also just two of at least 39 million lost and stolen passports around the world. Last year, there were more than 29.3 million ﬂights worldwide. By chance, many would have a passenger traveling on a stolen passport. “On the possibility of hijack, we are not ruling out any possibility,” Missed Screening Opportunities More than 1 billion times last year, travelers boarded planes without passports being checked against Interpol’s database of 40 million stolen or lost travel documents, according to the international organization. Interpol has warned of the issue for years and just last month bemoaned that “only a handful of countries” regularly use its database from 167 countries. For example, the database was searched more than 800 million times last year — but 1 in 8 searches was by United Arab Emirates alone. (AP) said Malaysian civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman. But it nevertheless appeared implausible that a passenger plane could simply disappear from radar screens unless it had crashed, experts said. The airline’s transponder, which broadcasts the plane’s position, went completely dark while the plane was cruising at a steady 35,000 feet. “Everything indicates it must have lost altitude suddenly,” said Mikael Robertsson of FlightRadar24. Malaysian investigators narrowed their focus Sunday on the possibility that the plane may have disintegrated in mid-ﬂight, according to the Reuters news agency. If the plane had broken up on impact with water, search teams would have been expected to ﬁnd a fairly concentrated pattern of debris, ofﬁcials said. But they said an explosion was not the only possible cause: The plane, a Boeing 777200, could have broken up due to mechanical issues. The plane, which was more than 11 years old, had suffered damage to its wing after a minor collision with another aircraft in 2012 but had been fully repaired. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP) Hijacking A traditional hijacking seems unlikely given that a plane’s captors typically land at an airport and have some type of demand. But a 9/11-like hijacking is possible, with terrorists forcing the plane into the ocean. Pilot Suicide There were two large jet crashes in the late 1990s — a SilkAir flight and an EgyptAir flight— believed to have been caused by pilots deliberately crashing the planes. Government crash investigators never formally declared the crashes suicides but both are widely acknowledged by crash experts to have been caused by deliberate pilot actions. Accidental Shoot-Down There have been incidents when a country’s military unintentionally shot down civilian aircraft. In July 1988, the U.S. Navy missile cruiser USS Vincennes accidently shot down an Iran Air flight, killing all 290 passengers and crew. In September 1983, a Korean Air Lines flight was shot down by a Russian fighter jet.

So many times this season, Maryland played well against good teams and ended up losing. The Terps reversed the trend Sunday by beating No. 5 Virginia 75-69 in overtime, and their fans marked the moment with a celebration that was a long time coming. “Today wasn’t just an ordinary game. It was a lot of things,” coach Mark Turgeon said. “We always play for Maryland, but today we played for former players, former coaches, all our fans.” After blowing a seemingly secure lead in the closing seconds of regulation, the Terps (17-14, 9-9 ACC) never trailed in the extra session in front of an emotional crowd of 17,950 at the school’s ﬁnal home basketball game in a conference it joined as a charter member in 1953. Maryland will play in the Big Ten next season. “It was great,” forward Evan Smotrycz said. “Obviously, we felt like we were playing for something bigger than ourselves. A lot of people had a lot invested in this game and wanted to see us win and ﬁnish off the ACC the right way.” Earlier this season, Maryland lost to Pittsburgh by four points, fell at Duke by two points, lost to Syracuse by two and dropped a dou- Wichita State forward Cleanthony Early had 10 points in Sunday’s win. Wichita St. Wins Valley Tourney College Basketball Fred VanVleet scored 22 points including several key baskets late to lead another strong ensemble effort and No. 2 Wichita State remained the nation’s lone unbeaten after defeating Indiana State 83-69 on Sunday in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final. Tekele Cotton added 20 points — with four 3-pointers — and Ron Baker had 14 points for the Shockers (34-0), who got tested in the second half before putting the title game out of reach with a 13-0 run capped by two 3-pointers from VanVleet that put them up by 18 points with 5:38 to go. Wichita State matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season held by UNLV in 199091 with its third straight convincing tournament win after going 18-0 in the conference regular season. The Shockers won their ﬁrst conference tournament since 1987. R.B.

So when Virginia used an improbable comeback to force overtime, Turgeon couldn’t help getting a familiar feeling. “The stuff we’ve been through, it’s been tough,” Turgeon said. “But it’s made us a lot tougher for the future.” Seth Allen scored five of his 20 points in overtime and Dez Wells ﬁnished with 18 for the Terps. Maryland had lost six straight to Virginia, including a 61-53 decision in February that was part of the Cavaliers’ school-record winning streak against ACC competition. After the ﬁnal buzzer sounded, thousands of fans raced onto the court to celebrate another unforgettable ACC memory at the expense of one of its biggest rivals. Attendance Down Comcast Center was packed for the Terps’ last ACC regular-season game Sunday. But since averaging a record 17,950 in 2007-08, Maryland’s attendance has dropped 30 percent.

The end of regulation was a horror show for Maryland. After Jake Layman made two free throws with 4.1 seconds left to put the Terps ahead 64-61, Maryland quickly fouled. Malcolm Brogdon made the ﬁrst free throw and intentionally missed the second before the Terrapins swatted the ball out of bounds with 1.7 seconds to go. Gill caught the inbound pass in the lane and dropped in an uncontested jumper to force overtime.

He was doing nothing more than drills with coaches, but after a nearly four-year wait, the high7 P.M. Today | CSN Evgeny Kuznetsov could make his Capitals debut tonight against the Penguins. Nats righty Stephen Strasburg made his second start of the spring Sunday. Nationals Stephen Strasburg bounced back from a rocky first inning and the Nationals’ offense came up big again in an 11-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Making his second start of the spring, Strasburg walked two and gave up an RBI single to his ﬁrst three batters before settling down. He went three innings, allowing two hits while throwing 28 of 48 pitches for strikes. Anthony Rendon homered and Wilson Ramos had two hits and three RBIs for the Nationals, who have scored 27 runs in their past three games. Allen Craig had two of St. Louis’ three hits, including an RBI single. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly gave up ﬁve runs and seven hits in 2⅓ innings. CARL KOTAL A (AP) ly touted forward prospect was ﬁnally in Washington preparing for his NHL debut, which could come as soon as tonight against the Penguins. “It’s kind of like seeing the Loch Ness Monster when he walked in,” general manager George McPhee said Saturday minutes after Kuznetsov ofﬁcially signed his entry-level contract. “We’ve heard of you, but we haven’t seen you and there he was. I found it too hard to believe he was standing there after all this.” Washington drafted Kuznetsov 26th overall in 2010 aware that the young Russian wanted to return to the KHL to continue his development. McPhee believed Kuznetsov would be ready to contribute at the NHL level within a year, but the 21-year-old elected to re-sign with Traktor Chelyabinsk in 2012, further delaying his long-awaited arrival. Late last year, Kuznetsov indicated to McPhee that he would join the Capitals as soon as his season was over in Russia. With Traktor eliminated from postseason contention last week, the process to bring Kuznetsov stateside formally began. “Any hockey player wants to play in the NHL, wants to win the RICHARD WOLOWICZ (GETTY IMAGES) Strasburg Overcomes Shaky Start [Stanley] Cup,” Kuznetsov said Sunday. “It’s my dream [to] play in NHL. I’m ready, 100 percent. I want to play.” Kuznetsov is widely regarded as one of the best prospects in the world, possessing dynamic playmaking ability with no shortage of offensive ﬂair. He will surely bolster Washington’s forward depth, likely as a left wing in a top-six role. McPhee a nd coach Ada m Oates have tempered the enormous expectations surrounding Kuznetsov, who will need to adjust to the smaller ice surface and more physical, north-south nature of the NHL. Realistically, they hope that Kuznetsov will provide the spark that will ignite the Capitals as they pursue a postseason berth with 17 games remaining. It is a challenge that Kuznetsov looks forward to taking on. “Every hockey player, every guy on the team wants to win the Cup, wants to play [in the] playoffs,” he said. “If you want to win, we need the practice, we need the game. That whole team wants to win.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS) Keselowski Edges Out Junior NASCAR Brad Keselowski surged ahead on the final lap when Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran out of fuel, claiming a dramatic victory Sunday in the NASCAR race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

M O N D AY | 0 3 . 1 0 . 2 0 1 4 | E X P R E S S | E3 ahead It’s a Matter of Course Do your homework to see if online master’s programs are a good fit Online Education When Emily Ham decided to get a master’s degree in international relations, she knew she would have to choose an online program. As a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, Ham travels all over the world for her job, which currently has her stationed at NATO’s Supreme Headquar ters A llied Powers Europe in Belgium. A traditional on-campus master’s program wasn’t an option. But Ham still wanted that sense of community and engagement students get when gathered in a classroom, surrounded by their peers. “I’m a person who really learns through conversation,” says Ham, 27. “If I just had to read all day I would fall asleep.” That might be a concern shared by a lot of students considering an online master’s program: Will it be engaging, or will it be dry and dull, so it’s easy to lose focus? That’s why many online graduate programs are taking full advantage of today’s technology to deliver content in ways that are interesting, innovative and help you feel like you’re sitting in the classroom. “The educational experience now available is considerably more dynamic and interactive than people’s first impressions of what online learning would be,” says Patrick Jackson, a professor in American University’s School of International Service who teaches classes for its online international relations master’s degree program (ironline.american.edu). Ham wound up choosing that program for its interactive platform. Students do some work on their own, which might include watching a video lecture from a professor or doing a training exer- Professor Patrick Jackson of American University says some online platforms are offering a nearclassroom experience. Get Plugged In Not sure if an online master’s program is right for you? Here are some ways you can educate yourself before paying your first tuition bill. Create a list of questions — and then ask them. Contact the programs you’re considering and ask to get connected with current students, alumni and professors. “Some people are hesitant to do that,” says the Council of Graduate Schools’ Julia Kent. “But it’s a very common and perfectly acceptable thing to do.” Attend on-campus information sessions if you can, or look for other ways to meet and observe your prospective professors in action. If you’re a member of a professional association in your field, see if any faculty members will be speaking at any upcoming events. If an online program offers a trial class, take it, even if that program isn’t at the top of your list. “You can see if this is a type of environment where you feel you can learn,” says Marymount University’s Francesca Reed. “A lot of students who have taken online programs say they can be challenging because you have to be a lot more disciplined.” B.L. cise, aka a case scenario. Then, using their camera-enabled computer, they meet up a couple of times a week in a virtual classroom that’s similar to a group video tele- conference. Everyone can see and hear each other to discuss coursework in real time. Professors can also use chat boxes to start other discussions, create polls to see what students are thinking, and even break up the virtual class into smaller groups. “That platform is one of the main reasons the program is as engaging as it is,” Ham says. “It’s almost like you’re in a classroom — you’re just looking at your computer in the comfort of your own home.” Sometimes that can take the discussion to levels not even possible in a traditional campus setting. “You can have a live [video] discussion and simultaneous chat windows going on, because some people are more comfortable interjecting something in text versus speech,” Jackson says. “So people can participate in both ways and go back and forth.” Of course, when students come from all over the world, the timing of these virtual meet-ups isn’t ideal for everyone. During Ham’s first semester, she was logging on at 1 a.m. from her home in Belgium. “I told my advisers that I really loved the program, but I couldn’t keep waking up at 1 in the morning,” she says. Now, t he prog ra m of fers two different timeframes, and Ham can participate in the online sessions at a time of day that’s more reasonable for her. Georgetown University uses a similar platform in its online master’s in nursing program through its School of Nursing and Health Studies (online.nursing.george town.edu). It allows students and faculty to meet virtually in real time to discuss a course’s reading and other assignments. “There are some totally asynchronous programs where students do all of the work on their own,” says Jeanne Matthews, chair of Georgetown’s department of nursing. “But we feel those asynchronous programs fall a little flat and generally don’t reflect the ongoing dialogue we want to promote among students and faculty.” Justin Gill was originally wary of online programs. But Georgetown’s master’s of nursing program, with its combination of individual and group learning, has changed his mind. “By communicating with my classmates and professors in real time, I can understand the concepts and course content more thoroughly and strengthen the knowledge that I’ve gained before each [group] session,” says Gill, 23, who lives in Blaine, Wash., and works part time in a family-practice clinic as a registered nurse. Of course, fancy virtual classrooms don’t mean much if the quality of the content doesn’t match the quality of the technology. So there are other things prospective students should look for when searching for an online master’s program that will keep their attention and be worth the investment of their time and money.

That’s roughly $65,000 total, or about the same as an on-campus international relations master’s program. “Check the graduation rates of the programs and how successful students have been after graduation,” says Francesca Reed, associate vice president for enrollment management at Marymount University in Arlington (marymount .edu). “That’s a good indicator of the type of program you’re getting into.” Do some research on the faculty who will be teaching the online classes. Are they active in their field? What have they published lately? And are they enthusiastic about bringing their knowledge to the digital world? “Teaching in an online environment often requires faculty to adjust their teaching and assessment methods,” says Julia Kent, a spokeswoman for the D.C.-based Council of Graduate Schools (1 Dupont Circle NW, Suite 230; “Just because a school might use an interesting platform for an online master’s program doesn’t mean it’s the best choice for you.” — LT.

Ham used sources like RateMyProfessors.com and university rankings when weighing her options. “I looked at the universities just like I would if I was going to attend them in person,” she says. “Just because a school might use an interesting platform for an online master’s program doesn’t mean it’s the best choice for you.” After all, it’s the school’s name that will be on your diploma, not the techy tools you used to obtain your degree. “I chose Georgetown because I wanted to go to a reputable university that would expand job opportunities for me,” Gill says. “Employers will know what university I went to and the level of education I got.” BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRESS) NEWS A GW degree STYLE A D.C.

Yes, he does play the piano — Peter Gabriel, Journey and even DMX, on request — but he’s not exactly dueling anybody (unless it’s part of an act to get laughs). “When a dueling pianist show is [performed] correctly and properly, there are two players performing at the same time, and each is adding to Get it for a very special low price of $0.00.

Between acts, to entertain audiences, all four play together — and each does a lot more than tickle the ivories. Smith also sings and plays drums and guitar. Shows last between four and six hours, making for “a pretty grueling schedule,” Smith says. He performs up to five nights a week at Bobby McKey’s (in addition to private shows). “By the end of the week, you have very little voice left,” he says. HOW HE GOT THE JOB: At an early age, Smith started playing songs by STEAL THIS JOB Not available in all areas. ear on an old organ at his Maryland home. He never had formal training and doesn’t know how to read sheet music. After high school, he worked in computers, but, Smith says, he soon realized “music was my calling.” He lived in Nashville, Tenn., touring with artists, and also wrote songs for his band, Divine Static. About 10 years ago, he was vacationing in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and volunteered to play a few songs at the Crocodile Rocks dueling piano bar (the usual guy was absent). A few months later, the club asked him to return as a regular. “I might be probably in the 2 percent of dueling piano players whom that has happened to,” Smith says, noting that most have to formally audition. While working in Myrtle Beach, Smith continued to travel nationally to M O N D AY | 0 3 . 1 0 . 2 0 1 4 | E X P R E S S | E7 ahead “The memories you can create through this type of work are amazing.” — RONNIE SMITH, A 40-YEAR-OLD DUELING PIANIST, ON THE ENTERTAINMENT THAT COMES FROM CROWD INVOLVEMENT WHEN HE’S WORKING ON THE STAGE play on a freelance basis. In 2008, when Bobby McKey’s was opening, its owners (who knew the owners of Crocodile Rocks) approached Smith to ask him to become a full-time performer. Smith jumped at the chance. WHO WOULD WANT THIS JOB: memories you can create through this type of work are amazing,” he says. HOW YOU CAN GET THIS JOB: If If you’ve got sharp musical skills — whether you’re classically trained or self-taught — you might be a great candidate. Of course, it’s not that straightforward; a vast store of musical knowledge — and comfort with practically any style — is key, too. Then, there are personality and endurance factors: Natural entertainers might feel right at home on stage — but to be a dueling pianist, you need enough energy to stay there for hours on end. And you’ve got to keep a sometimes-finicky crowd happy throughout. “You can’t just get up and sing songs and expect people to react,” Smith says. He often invites audience members on stage, especially if they’re celebrating an occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. “The you don’t know how to play a piano, let alone a musical instrument, you might be out of luck — at least until you take serious lessons. If you’re already a musician with experience, practice, practice, practice. (Even Smith rehearses from time to time.) Seek out chances to play alongside others, especially other pianists. “To co-exist and co-play with three other guys who do exactly the same thing you do is sometimes very hard,” Smith says. “You have to be very open-minded.” Smith recommends newbies observe plenty of dueling piano shows to pick up on performance skills. Landing a steady gig usually requires an audition, and even after you’re in, you might be assigned the slowest nights. It takes time to work yourself up to bigger shows. But Smith believes it’s all worth it: “You can’t just go anywhere to see this sort of thing.” KATIE ABERBACH (FOR EXPRESS) Career Education GET THE SKILLS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED!

However, not ever y space employs the same business model, uses taxpayer dollars in the same manner or offers the same resources to its companies. And this leaves room for debate over what works and what doesn’t when the government tries to support startups. “A lot of cities and a lot of community leaders want to grow a better startup scene and want to create these incubator and accelerator programs,” David Zipper, who oversees the programming at 1776, a business incubator and technology hub in the District, said. “But what do these spaces look like, and how do you make it work?” It’s a debate that has been thrown into the spotlight in Montgomery County, Md., where officials recently decided to transform one of the region’s largest biotech incubators, the William Hanna Innovation Center at Shady Grove, into a cybersecurity center. What started as an outcry has turned into a broader dialogue about what is needed to nurture young businesses. Montgomery Economic Development Director Steve Silverman says his team has begun devoting more time to crafting targeted business mentoring programs and partnering with investment groups. It’s a transition already happening in parts of the state, according to Phil Schiff, chief executive of the Tech Council of Maryland. Moving Forward It’s happening in Anne Arundel, Md., at the Chesapeake Innovation Center, which receives most of its funding from the county. Laura Willoughby, the center’s executive director, says her team has worked with entrepreneurs one-on-one to determine which services they will need — what she called a “tailored but unstructured” approach. The group is updating its model by designing courses and programs that will provide more structured, step-by-step programs. The Northern Virginia Technology Council has started offering an intensive 10-week training program. “You need a community and collaboration, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need a physical space,” said Kristin D’Amore, president of NVTC’s entrepreneur center. TWP FILE PHOTO Incubator and tech hub 1776 provides a springboard for startups in Washington. What started as an outcry in Montgomery County has turned into a broader dialogue about what is needed to nurture young businesses. At 1776 in the District, which opened last year with the help of a $200,000 grant from the city, the leadership team is taking a similar approach. Zipper said the group has been “extremely focused” on its various mentoring programs. Most recently, the group began what it calls 1776 Labs. Under this program, the incubator will link entrepreneurs with a long-term business coach. In part, that type of program is possible, Zipper said, because the District has elected to “provide some initial support and then step back and let the entrepreneurs lead the way.” “When you see problems with these types of venture is when elected officials can’t let go,” he said. J. D. H A R R I S O N ( T H E WA S H IN G T O N P O S T ) Evolving Models The two most commonly used models have fundamental differences. Accelerators, for one, take applications from early-stage companies, and the ones they accept typically receive work space, capital and intensive mentoring in exchange for a slice of equity. Commonly, startups stay for months and then “graduate” out of the space. Incubators have traditionally offered low-rent work space to entrepreneurs, usually in a group setting. And while they tend to offer some resources, they do not generally take equity in businesses, and companies often stay put for years. The lines are starting to blur as public officials experiment with hybrid models.

She will play the role of Elizabeth, a woman who returns to New York City to rebuild her life after a divorce and finds herself being pulled in two directions. “It’s about a woman starting over and not trying to control every outcome and the choices we make as opposed to fate and what’s destined and what isn’t.” (AP) Music Tony-winning Idina Menzel — or Adele Dazeem if you’re John Travolta — is enjoying massive success with “Let It Go” from the animated film “Frozen,” but the entertainer is still perplexed that she’s finally triumphing on the pop charts with a show tune-esque track. “I’ve tried so hard to crossover, to convince people just because I was in a Broadway show I didn’t have the street cred to be a rock or a pop singer,” Menzel said. “And then the one time I have it, it’s the arrangement from the Disney movie.” Menzel’s musical moment grew even stronger when “Let It Go” won best original song at last Sunday’s Academy Awards (the Oscar went to the songwriters and producers, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez). The song has sold close to 1.5 million tracks and is a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The “Frozen” album has been No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for ﬁve weeks and counting, the most for a soundtrack album since “Titanic” in 1998. Menzel’s song has even eclipsed Demi Lovato’s version of “Let It Go” — technically the “single version.” Menzel, 42, said she usually learns a thing or two from the characters she portrays — whether it was her breakthrough as Mau- 8 P.M. ‘Star-Crossed’ (CW) Roman’s (Matt Lanter, above left) mother produces a cellphone she found with his late father’s things. He tells Julia he wants to retrieve the data from the phone, so she introduces him to Lukas, who might be able to help. 9 P.M. ‘Dallas’ (TNT) Bobby tries to outmaneuver John Ross as the race to obtain capital for the Arctic Lease auction gets under way. As Nicolas’ partnership with Elena heats up, Christopher learns something surprising about Nicolas’ past. John Ross and Pamela’s wedding may not happen, thanks to Emma. 10 P.M. ‘Archer’ (FX) This is why it’s a bad idea to drink on the job. In this new episode, Archer goes to Colombia on a secret mission, but he ends up spilling the secret after overindulging in alcohol. ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (ABC) Jimmy takes his show on the road, spending a week in Austin, Texas, during the South by Southwest Festival. Since SXSW is an eclectic event that draws a diverse crowd, there could be some surprises on Kimmel’s guest list this week. Idina Menzel won a Tony Award in 2004 for her starring role in “Wicked.” $45.1M The box office take of “300: Rise of an Empire” this weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” also in its opening weekend, came in second place with $32.5 million in earnings. Liam Neeson’s “Non-Stop” came in a distant third in its second weekend with $15.4 million. (E XPRESS) DAN HALLMAN (INVISION VIA AP) 11:35 P.M. reen Johnson in “Rent” or Elphaba in “Wicked,” which won her a Tony in 2004. She has also starred on Fox’s “Glee,” playing the mother of Lea Michele’s character. Menzel even says she’s been able to relate to her young character in “Frozen”: “I always say, when I was younger I was more ﬁerce than I am now. I wouldn’t have taken no for an answer. It’s the older you get, and even more successful, that you start to doubt yourself.” But Menzel isn’t living in regrets — and she even has useful advice for young performers and her younger self. “You just have to keep doing what you love and try not to worry about following the rules,” she said. “And it may not work out, but if you’re really good, at some point the stars align and then things happens.” MESFIN FEK ADU (AP) M O N D AY | 0 3 . 1 0 . 2 0 1 4 | E X P R E S S | 19 The best things to do this week Find more events for your weekend in Thursday’s Weekend Pass.

It’s so funny and entertaining. But the whole time I was just thinking about the fact she posted it on MySpace.” — COMMENTER ROBINBIRD1800 AT EW.COM was distracted THINKSTOCK by Laura Simpson’s odd choice of media platform for her behind-the-scenes Oscars post. Simpson, above left, who attended the awards with best friend Jennifer Lawrence, included such gems as: “Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing and he tells us, ‘I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.’ I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind.” “It is well known that Silverman sports one of the finest haberdashery collections on the east coast so do not ask him to remove his hat.

The Washington City Paper’s Jessica Sidman published the list, which includes writers’ likes and dislikes and advice about which type of server to seat them with. 22 points last year’s list of reasons why daylight saving time needs to be abolished. Among them, the time switch results in a spike in “cyberloaﬁng,” according to a report in the Journal of Applied Psychology. “Don’t you waste enough time doing that during work year-round as it is? Can you really afford to be clicking around on listicles even more?” Yakas asks. At least you can blame science for your lack of productivity today. “Basically, we would like everyone to walk around with their business card attached to their forehead.” — HEATHER LONG AT THE GUARDIAN.COM argues that Americans should break the habit of asking “What do you do?” Amid a weak economic recovery, attitudes about work are changing and people’s lives are often no longer centered on jobs, she says.
