ENDORSED BY Ms. Bowser offers Washingtonians more than just a vote against Mr. Gray; she represents a positive new way forward. March 30, Washington, DC — Well-schooled in government, including a stint in Montgomery County and two solid terms on the D.C. Council, Ms. Bowser has an appreciation for the city’s successes that fuels her impatience to fix its failings. Accelerating school improvement, continuing economic development without pushing out the poor and middle class, investing in infrastructure and reforming government procurement are the issues that top her agenda and for which she has presented thoughtful ideas. After thinking long and hard about the ups and downs of Mr. Fenty, her self-described friend and supporter, she understands the critical importance of having a team that will speak out when necessary to tell her, “Muriel, stop. Muriel, listen. Muriel, go there.” Her appeal extends to all demographics, in all parts of the city. That is a credit to the power of her vision and the strength of the campaign she has organized and run. Those are promising harbingers of how she would lead the city.

RINGO H.W. CHIU (AP)

In a flood of last-minute sign-ups, hundreds of thousands of Americans rushed to apply for health insurance Monday, as deadline day for President Barack Obama’s overhaul brought long waits and a new spate of website ills. Supporters of the health-care law fanned out across the country in a final dash to sign up uninsured Americans. The HealthCare .gov website, which was receiving 1.5 million visitors a day last week, had recorded about 1.6 million through 2 p.m. Monday. At times, more than 125,000 people were simultaneously using the system, straining it beyond its previously estimated capacity. People not signed up for health insurance by the deadline were subject to being fined by the IRS, and that threat was helping drive the final dash. The administration announced

Another hiccup in early afternoon temporarily kept new applicants from signing up, and then things slowed further as the afternoon wore on. Overwhelmed by computer problems when launched last fall, the sys-

tem has been working much better in recent months, but independent testers say it still runs slowly. At St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington, Del., enrollment counselor Hubert Worthen plunged into a long day. “I got my energy drink,” he said. “This is epic, man.” At a Houston community center, there were immigrants from Ethiopia, Nepal, Eritrea, Somalia, Iraq, Iran and other conflict-torn areas, many of them trying anew after

failing to complete applications previously. In addition to needing help with enrollment, they needed to wait for interpreters. Many had taken a day off from work, hoping to meet the deadline. The White House was hoping for an enrollment surge that would push sign-ups in the new health insurance markets to around 6.5 million people. That’s halfway between a revised goal of 6 million and the original target of 7 million. RICARDO ALONSO-Z ALDIVAR (AP)

A day after hundreds of people clashed with Albuquerque riot officers over police shootings, Gov. Susana Martinez said Monday that she understands the public’s frustration but called on protesters to remain calm while federal officials investigate. At least one officer was injured and six people arrested as the protesters marched back and forth between downtown and the University of New Mexico for 10 hours Sunday, blocking traffic, trying to topple street signs and calling for the police chief and other city officials to resign. It’s unclear if any protesters were hurt. Gas canisters were thrown outside police headquarters, and Mayor Richard Berry said Sunday that at one point protesters trapped

Russia Pulls Back Some Troops Buildup on Ukraine border eased, though Kiev is skeptical

Meanwhile …

Simferopol, Crimea Russia said Monday it was pulling a battalion of several hundred troops away from the Ukrainian border but kept tens of thousands in place, prompting a worried response from the Kiev government about what the U.S. warned was still a “tremendous buildup.” The U.S. reacted cautiously to the Russian troop movement, with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel saying that “tens of thousands” of Russian forces still remained along the Ukrainian border. A battalion is about 500 troops. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry also discussed Ukraine by phone Monday, a day

“I alone can make an empire out of a republic.” — DA RTH VA DER, WHO IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE ON THE UKRAINIAN INTERNET PARTY TICKET,

French Prime Minister Replaced Paris French President Francois Hollande named former Interior Minister Manuel Valls as France’s new prime minister Monday, just 24 hours after his Socialists suffered heavy losses in nationwide municipal elections. Disappointment with the Socialists’ handling of the economy drove many voters to conservative or antiimmigrant far-right candidates in the elections Sunday and Hollande hopes the reshuffle will boost the government’s popularity. Valls is consistently voted France’s most popular Socialist in opinion polls and is considered part of the right wing of the party. He replaces Jean-Marc Ayrault.

Six Dead in Kenya Attacks

Manuel Valls was promoted Monday to prime minster in France’s shakeup.

The 51-year-old has drawn comparisons with former conservative French President Nicolas Sarkozy and is also the most popular Socialist among France’s conservative right — he wants, for example, to rethink France’s 35-hour working

week, a Socialist initiative. Ayrault conceded that the elections were “a defeat for the government.” The administration has failed to fulfill its promises to cut France’s more than 10 percent unemployment and boost growth, which was just 0.3 percent last year, according to figures released Monday. In a prerecorded televised speech, Hollande said it was time for France to enter a “new phase” and pledged Valls would lead a “combative government.” He spelled out some key policy changes that included announcing new unspecified tax cuts and confirming a plan to slash 50-billion euros in government spending.

Still, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said officials are “well, well short” of any point where they would scale back the hunt. In fact, he said the intensity and magnitude of operations “is increasing, not decreasing.” (AP)

World Seoul, South Korea North and South Korea fired hundreds of artillery shells into each other’s waters Monday in a flare-up of animosity that forced residents of five front-line South Korean islands to evacuate to shelters for several hours, South Korean officials said. The exchange of fire into the Yellow Sea followed Pyongyang’s sudden announcement that it would conduct live-fire drills in seven areas north of the Koreas’ disputed maritime boundary. North Korea routinely test-fires artillery and missiles into the ocean but rarely discloses those plans in advance. The announcement was seen as an

expression of Pyongyang’s frustration at making little progress in its recent push to win outside aid. North Korea fired 500 rounds of artillery shells over more than three hours, about 100 of which fell south of the sea boundary, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said. South Korea responded by firing 300 shells into North Korean waters, he said. Residents on front-line South Korean islands spent hours in shelters during the firing, and officials temporarily halted ferry service linking the islands to the mainland. Recent weeks have seen a series of North Korean rocket and ballistic missile launches considered acts

been the scene of several naval skirmishes between the Koreas in recent years. In March 2010, a South Korean warship sank in the area following a torpedo attack blamed on Pyongyang that left 46 sailors dead. North Korea denies responsibility. In November 2010, a North Korean artillery bombardment killed four South Koreans on Yeonpyeong. “The boneheads appear to have completely forgotten the fact that Yeonpyeong island was smashed by our military’s bolt of lightning a few years ago,” a North Korean military official, Yun Jong Bum, said Monday, according to the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.

‘Who’s Driving You?’ vs. ‘I’m Driving You’ Taxicab group and ridesharing companies are waging a PR war Washington The fight between taxicab companies and ridesharing companies like Uber, Lyft and Sidecar is not new, but it is taking on a heightened dimension with the help of two local businesses. Melwood Global, the Bethesda-based public relations firm, and Interactive Strategies, a design and online marketing agency based in Dupont, are working together to represent the Taxicab, Limou-

sine & Paratransit Association — a Rockville trade association representing 1,100 taxicab companies — in mounting its campaign against ridesharing service providers. Four months ago, the association accelerated its efforts to draw attention to what it sees as safety lapses in the ridesharing industry. Melwood helped design the “Who’s Driving You?” initiative as a public safety issue, arguing that ridesharing services do not have stringent enough background checks for drivers and lack proper insurance polices to cover accidents. A major part of the campaign is the website whosdrivingyou.org, which compiles complaints from

“Of course the [taxicab] industry is concerned that other companies are allowed to come in and not play by any of the rules.” — JOHN BOIT, THE CO-FOUNDER OF PR FIRM MELWOOD GLOBAL, ON THE COMPANY’S WORK ON BEHALF OF THE TA XICAB INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION

Twitter, Facebook and Yelp airing concerns ranging from high prices (“I still can’t believe @uber charged $156 for 8 miles.”) to questionable behavior (“Driver tried to stalk me. He had my real number.”) The site also tracks legislation in other states and cities that are considering rules regulating ridesharing companies. One of the campaign’s goals is to have ridesharing

companies comply with the same regulations as taxicab companies. The ridesharing industry is pushing back, accusing the taxicab association of resorting to public safety arguments when it is really trying to stifle competition, Sidecar chief executive Sunil Paul said. “It’s just outright efforts by the taxi lobby to use their influence to suppress innovation and competi-

tion,” he said. Sidecar recently began doing more comprehensive motor vehicle record checks for drivers, and is adding additional collision coverage. Uber has also hit back, coming out with its own “I’m Driving You” campaign earlier this month on its website, compiling testimonials from drivers about why they chose to become Uber drivers. The company also announced in February that it was expanding its background checks for drivers. As of March 14, Uber expanded its insurance policy and in October, Uber hired outside lobbyists for the first time. CATHERINE HO (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

Local A man found dead is likely the suspect in case of missing girl Washington Investigators think a man found dead Monday in a D.C. park is the janitor suspected of abducting 8-year-old Relisha Rudd, Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. Officials cautioned they had not yet positively identified the body, found during an extensive search for the missing child at the Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens, as that of Kahlil Tatum. But Lanier said investigators believe the dead man is Tatum, and that he killed himself. One police official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is pending, said markings on the man’s body helped lead to the

early identification. “Everything we have is consistent with what we know about his appearance,” Lanier said. It is unclear if the discovery of the body brings police any closer to discovering what happened to Relisha, who was last seen March 1 with Tatum. The 51-year-old worked as a janitor for a D.C. homeless shelter where the young girl lived. Relisha’s

mother has said she allowed the girl to go home with Tatum last month. The possible discover y of Tatum’s body raised more questions than it answered for Relisha’s aunt, Ashley Young. “If it is him, where is Relisha?” Young asked. The discovery of the body came as police officers, firefighters and cadets continued a search of the 700-acre park for signs of Relisha.

Lanier declined to speculate how long the body had been in the park or reveal where it had been found.“The best I can tell you the search is still underway,” Lanier said. Local and federal authorities have been searching for Tatum along the East Coast. He is charged with killing his wife in Oxon Hill, Md. Last week, Lanier said that the search had become a “recovery mission” and “we cannot ignore the possibility that he killed her.” Police have also said they are investigating other contact that Tatum had with young girls at the shelter. Several people have told The Washington Post that Tatum frequently offered girls gifts and that he spent a lot of time with Relisha. Lanier would not describe t he t y pe of contact but sa id aut hor it ie s a r e c onc e r ne d .

D.C. Releases Results of School Lottery Washington

PETER HERMANN AND CLARENCE WILLIAMS

More than 17,000 students entered the D.C. school lottery this year, which for the first time included all traditional schools and most charter schools. Parents were allowed to rank up to 12 schools in order of preference, and a computer algorithm matched the children. About 71 percent of families matched with one of their choices, according to data released Monday. Of those who matched, 85 percent got one of their top three choices. So there were plenty of lottery winners. But there were also plenty of folks who are feeling like they lost: the 29 percent who didn’t match any schools, and other families who got into one of their last-choice schools.

Turnout in Early Voting Was Low Washington Despite predictions that more District residents would vote early for mayor, the opposite has turned out to be true — a sign of potentially historic low turnout and a reason for new uncertainty in today’s already fluid Democratic primary. A little more than 14,000 voters cast ballots during a two-week early voting period that ended Saturday evening. Four years ago, more than 22,000 voted before primary day. Candidates readily blamed a new campaign schedule — previous mayoral primaries have come in early September — and a spate of bad campaign-season weather that included frigid temperatures,

The Turnout Factor In surveys taken ahead of the previous three mayoral primaries, about two-thirds of registered Democrats said they were certain to vote. This year, only 54 percent said they would definitely do so. A low-turnout in today’s election could give Mayor Vincent Gray an advantage, with polls showing a core group of supporters determined to vote for him. But only about 11 percent of early votes were cast in polling places east of the Anacostia River, an area targeted by Gray’s campaign. (T WP)

Living with HIV? Help us advance treatment through research People with HIV are now living longer thanks to combination antiretroviral (ARV) medication that stops the HIV virus from making copies of itself. Although medication lowers the amount of virus in the body, it can’t eliminate the infection, and we don’t know how the HIV virus persists for long periods. We can now detect the virus at very low levels and are studying medications that may further lower HIV levels when combined with ARV therapy. We are seeking volunteers for a research study of a medication called interferon alpha. The study goal is to determine if levels of the HIV virus in the body can be further lowered with this medication.

PARTICIPANTS ARE NEEDED WHO: • Are 18 or older • Have been diagnosed with HIV • Are well controlled on ARV medication In addition to regular ARV medication, participants will receive an injection (a shot) of interferon once per week for 4 weeks and will then be monitored for 10 months. Participants will be compensated for their time and will also receive results of their HIV-1 RNA levels. For more information, call:

Cover Story Know Your Hoax

Online, It’s Always April Fools’ Day

It’s like the game two truths and a lie: A bank mistakenly deposited $31,000 in a teen’s account, and he spent most of it in days. Seinfeld’s Wayne Knight (aka Newman) died in a car wreck. A chain restaurant will offer milkshakes made with wine. Do you know which of these stories from the past few weeks is fake? (Answer below) (T WP)

Early April Fools’ Google is looking for the very best, like no one ever was — to be Pokemon Masters. OK, not really. But the tech giant appears to have pulled the trigger early on one of its infamous April Fools’ Day hoaxes, this time revealing a “Pokemon Challenge” in their Google Maps app. (TWP)

Once, you couldn’t trust what you read on April 1. Now, that’s pretty much every day.

Livr, the social network for drunk people, had all the trimmings of an ascendant tech startup. A slick promotional video. A hip website littered with buzzwords. Press releases. T-shirts. Grassroots buzz that began in Reddit’s technology forums and bubbled into the mainstream press. The only problem? It was all fake — an elaborate hoax engineered by Brandon Schmittling and Brandon Bloch, two creatives with a lot of free time and little patience for what they call the “absurdity” of modern Internet culture. After dreaming up an idea for a startup so ridiculous no one would believe it, Bloch and Schmittling set out to entice people to buy in. They bought a domain name, designed a website, enlisted actors to play

ANSWER: THE WAYNE KNIGHT STORY IS FAKE

Washington

Livr’s earnest co-founders; they “leaked” a fake press release on Reddit, promising an improbable “online party at all times,” a social network limited only by the user’s blood alcohol concentration. First Engadget blogged about it. Then Next Web. Soon Mashable and CNN. Within hours, one of Silicon Valley’s top investment firms contacted the pair, asking if they needed venture capital. “Livr was one of those ideas you have when you’re sitting around the bar with your friends, and someone says, ‘Wouldn’t it be crazy if … ?’ ” Bloch said laughing. “But these days there’s no such thing as too crazy.” April 1 was previously a oncein-a-year-opportunity to print phenomenal whoppers in newspapers, tell your children penguins can fly and otherwise violate the

everyday norms of human behavior. But pranksters hardly need an annual indulgence for their hijinks anymore: On the Internet, after all, every day is April Fools’ Day. In the past week alone, online hoaxers convinced wide swaths of the online world that a deranged man dressed as a clown wandered unchecked around Staten Island, N.Y., that Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte casually biked to his meeting with President Barack Obama and that R&B singer Trey Songz was gay. There’s no denying the eyebrow-

arching absurdity of these times, where “reality TV” denotes one of television’s more fictionalized outputs and the news swims in headlines too crazy to be true. “I don’t see the distinction much anymore, between fantasy and reality,” explained Bloch. “In my mind, the line is blurred.” Exactly who is doing the blurring, though, is up for debate. Although it’s easy, and perhaps comfortable, to blame the deceivers, the reality is far more complicated. The Web incentivizes page views, no matter how they’re racked up. And so hoaxes are hatched not only by lone pranksters but also marketers eager for attention. They’re often propagated by journalists hungry for clicks and starved for time. Then they’re swallowed whole by an audience drowning in so much information that only the truly crazy stuff stands out. “Americans are just bombarded with information,” said Allen Peter-

“It doesn’t matter to me if people believe it or not. It’s just a hoax and people will move on to another one.” — GEMM A SHERIDA N, THE SUBJECT OF A VIRAL STORY LAST WEEK THAT CLAIMED SHE WAS STRANDED ON AN ISLAND FOR SEVEN YEARS, FORCED TO STRANGLE GOATS TO SURVIVE

son, the executive director of Wine to Water, a tiny water charity behind the “Miracle Machine” hoax of a few weeks ago, which promoted a gadget that claimed to turn water into wine. “I mean, to get their attention on something like the water crisis? The question is, how do we even get that in front of them?” Wine to Water’s hoax was perhaps the most forgivable ruse in recent memory. A five-person nonprofit organization, Wine to Water funds clean-water projects in Haiti, Ethiopia and six other countries. It pays for the projects through donations and sales of its branded wine. A mu lt i nat iona l PR f i r m approached Peterson with the offer of a pro-bono marketing campaign that would play off the Wine to Water name — and get the water crisis in front of millions of people who wouldn’t spend two seconds on it otherwise. Peterson and his organization weren’t concerned about the tactics or the implicit commentary on America’s painfully short attention span. He reasoned that, if the hoax could save one child, the deceit would have paid off. It did. Wine to Water’s donations have shot up more than 20 percent since the hoax; Peterson estimates his charity will reach an estimated 6,000 more people in 2014. But not all hoaxsters share Peterson’s altruism, or Bloch and Schmittling’s sense of philosophical inquiry. Some redirect to phishing sites that attempt to draw out personal information. And a number of sites that propagate fake stories — including Mediamass, or the dubious News -hound.org — profit from display ads when their frauds go viral. One recent News-hound story that took off on Twitter was about the Earth’s gravitational field going down for a few minutes. (Ironically enough, that bit of astronomical urban legend originated as an April Fools’ joke … in 1976.) “People are interested in trading this reality for another one,” Schmittling, Livr’s co-founder, said simply. “They want life to be entertainment.” It’s no wonder one day in April is no longer enough.

Temperature at first pitch at Citi Field in New York for opening day — five degrees colder than the temperature at kickoff of Super Bowl XLVIII in Northern New Jersey on Feb. 2.

Nationals After almost 4 hours of baseball filled with twists and turns, Matt Williams has his first win as a major league manager. Anthony Rendon hit a threerun homer in the 10th inning and had a career-best four RBIs, twice rallying the Nationals against the New York Mets’ suspect bullpen for a 9-7 victory in their season opener Monday. “I have a stomach ache right now,” Williams said. “There was lots of stuff today.

It didn’t take long before the Nationals had their first scare of the season. In the second inning Monday, All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper was shaken up when he got kicked in the forehead by Mets second baseman Eric Young Jr. while breaking up a double play. Harper stayed down for a minute or two and rubbed his head after Nationals manager Matt Williams and a trainer rushed out to check on him. The young slugger stayed in the game, though, and later began Washington’s comeback. “I’m OK, but I’ve got a pretty bad headache right now. I was seeing stars there, but I’ve seen stars before,” said Harper, who passed concussion tests during and after the game. Batting fifth, Harper finished 1-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts.

er Bobby Parnell, and Ian Desmond put the Nationals in front for the first time with a sacrifice fly in the 10th. Rendon connected two batters later against former Washington pitcher John Lannan, securing a win for Williams in his managerial debut. “I’ll probably sleep good tonight,”

Williams said. “That’s what we want to have as our DNA — never give up, never give in.” Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 over six innings in his third straight opening-day start. But he fell behind early and was outpitched most of the day by Dillon Gee, given the start-

ing assignment because of injuries to Matt Harvey and Jonathon Niese. Aaron Barrett (1-0) struck out two in a perfect inning to win his major league debut, with family in the stands. “It was such an amazing team win,” he said. “It was awesome to be a part of it.” The Mets lost for only the third time in their last 23 season openers at home. They still own the best mark in the majors on opening day at 34-19. The temperature at first pitch was 44 degrees, with wind gusting to 25 mph, but it warmed up as the sun came out.

Major League Baseball’s use of expanded replay drew a workout in Monday’s opener between the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates, with one call being upheld and another overturned. Cubs manager Rick Renteria asked umpires to take another look after Jeff Samardzija was called out at first base in the fifth inning Monday at PNC Park. The call was confirmed on replay after a 2-minute delay. That marked the first use of expanded replay in regular-season play. Umpires went to replay again in the 10th inning of a scoreless game, with the original safe call on an attempted pickoff play at first by Pittsburgh reliever Bryan Morris overturned after a 2½-minute stoppage.

Capitals Throughout the season, the Capitals’ play at even strength has been a glaring weakness. Washington, which ranked 23rd in total five-on-five goals as of Monday, is on pace to finish with roughly 138. That would be the Capitals’ lowest output in a full season since 2005-06, when they finished 27th in the NHL standings. The Capitals’ even-strength woes have been magnified over the

past month as they fight for a playoff spot. Washington’s top-six forwards have failed to produce any offense during five-on-five play as the season winds down. Alex Ovechkin, currently in a curious partnership with defensive-minded center Jay Beagle, was held without a single evenstrength point in March. His ongoing 15-game drought without an even-strength goal is the longest of his career. Excluding an empty-netter, Troy Brouwer scored his first fiveon-five goal since returning from the Olympic break Sunday against the Predators. Nicklas Backstrom has been held without an even-

strength goal since Feb. 27, while Marcus Johansson has scored two all season. Outside of the Capitals’ third line featuring Jason Chimera, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward, the rest of the team has not mustered consistent offense at even strength. “We need more from everyone five-on-five and our best players have got to be our best players,” Chimera said Saturday. “We can’t just rely on [the] power play.” Washington has become heavily dependent on its top-ranked power play. Forty percent of the Capitals’ offense in the past 16 games has come from the power play, rendering them one-dimensional.

The Capitals are 12-17-8 when failing to score on the power play this season, which formulates a simple game plan for opponents: remain disciplined and force Washington to gain traction at even strength. And with power-play opportunities harder to come by in the postseason, if the Capitals get there, finding five-on-five success becomes even more vital. With seven games left, the Capitals’ grip on a seventh straight playoff appearance is becoming more tenuous by the day, and the disappearance of evenstrength production hasn’t helped.

This Diet Has a Fish Hook

D.C. pals Janis Jibrin and Sidra Forman promote eating the pescetarian way

FLOUNDER BAKED WITH GRAPES AND ALMONDS

TEDDY WOLFF (FOR EXPRESS)

Ingredients 1 pound flounder fillet 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1 cup halved red grapes 1 cup chopped and toasted almonds 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Janis Jibrin, left, and Sidra Forman, right, will demo recipes from the book at Whole Foods (1440 P St. NW) on April 24 at 6:30 p.m.

Makes Four Servings up with jalapenos and lime juice. “And sometimes you just take a good ingredient, like a nice fish, and get out of the way,” Forman says. In the book, Jibrin outlines what makes a properly sized portion, and recommends eating a certain number of servings from seven different food groups each day. Stick with it, and you’ll see more benefits than just the sinking numbers on your scale, she adds. A 2013 Harvard study suggests that people 65 or older who eat fatty fish can extend their lives. Omega-3-rich fishes (salmon, halibut, trout) are thought to cut down on inflammation, lower the risk of heart disease and quash depression. Should the mercury in fish worry you? “If you pick the right seafood, you’ll have very little exposure to mercury,” Jibrin says. The book boasts handy charts reveal-

KATE HEADLEY

Here’s what was served at a recent lunch at chef Sidra Forman’s Mount Vernon Square townhouse: Grinch-green kale soup, a quinoa salad laced with pomegranate seeds, grilled black bass topped with sorrel (plucked straight from her garden) and sesame coconut cookies. Each dish provided a taste of what’s inside “The Pescetarian Plan: The Vegetarian + Seafood Way to Lose Weight and Love Your Food” ($26, Ballantine Books; thepescetarianplan.com), a new health and diet book from Forman and registered dietitian Janis Jibrin. The friends know their way around a recipe — Forman has multiple D.C. restaurant gigs under her apron, and Jibrin is a Dupont Circle-based nutritionist who frequently collaborates with Oprah fitness guru Bob Greene. And the ones in this book are designed to leverage both science and satisfaction. “The research is convincing that being a pescetarian offers the complete package, a way of eating that’s both slimming and ultra-nutritious,” Jibrin says. “It’s personally the way I eat, and I meet more and more trim and healthy people who are basically pescetarian.” (Forman, a vegan, is on board due to her enthusiasm for plant-based foods.) The plan basically hews to a Mediterranean diet. It’s heavy on fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and spiked with liberal doses of olive oil, red wine and, of course, seafood. Forman meshes healthful ingredients into flavorful combos, such as haddock tacos revved

ing what to reel in (U.S.-farmed Arctic char), go easy on (hook-andline caught rockfish) and toss back (shark and swordfish). Plus, reputable fish sellers will advise you on what’s local, sustainably farmed and low in mercury. In D.C., Forman likes Whole Foods, Black Salt Fish Market and Union

Market’s new The District Fishwife. As for produce, Forman harvests what she can from her yard and shops at an Amish co-op in Pennsylvania; Jibrin loves the Dupont Circle Freshfarm Market. Both are looking forward to the morel mushrooms that should show up soon. JENNIFER BARGER (E XPRESS)

Preheat oven to 375 F. Place fish on a sheet tray and season with 1½ teaspoons of olive oil, ⅛ teaspoon of salt, and freshly ground black pepper. In a bowl, combine the grapes, almonds, parsley, lemon juice, 1½ teaspoons of olive oil, ⅛ teaspoon of salt and black pepper. Place the fish in the oven and bake for 3 minutes, then flip the fish, return to the oven until the fish is just beginning to flake but the center is still translucent, approximately 3 minutes. Take care not to overcook. Remove from oven and serve immediately, topped with grape mixture. (REPRINTED FROM “THE PESCETARIAN PLAN: THE VEGETARIAN + SEAFOOD WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND LOVE YOUR FOOD”)

What Are You Waiting for? My boyfriend and I got into an argument two weeks ago. I reached out to him a few days later and he promised to meet with me the following day after work. I haven’t heard back from him since. I’m really upset and trying to understand why he would stop communicating with me. Should I send him an email expressing how I feel or should I give him some more time? WAITING How about instead you go out for karaoke with your friends, volunteer at an animal shelter, take a French class, or just engross yourself in some vintage Devo videos, and — here’s the important thing — move on. I understand you’re not resigned to the idea of a breakup yet. But someone who pulls a weekslong silent treatment isn’t worthy of a continued relationship. And, to

be brutally honest here, he’s probably not interested in one either. Ask yourself why you feel that you deserve this, how it could possibly be better than being on your own, and what you should think of someone whose main coping strategy is an aggressive and cruel disappearing act. Don’t give him more time — give it to yourself, to rebuild your life and do better.

My husband expects our son to make him a grandfather. He feels our son owes it to him because of the money we put into his education, and he has a lot of anger/depression about it. I don’t agree. Our son has self-esteem issues and I believe this is due to his father putting him down when he was a child. I feel it’s partially his fault that our son cannot have a good relationship now. My husband has no interests outside of his work and family, and will not do therapy. I would just like to get out of the middle and am considering therapy just to learn how to do it. IN THE MIDDLE

I get that you want the perfect words to tell your husband to make him see that no one is obligated to reproduce for anyone else, despite monetary support. But the fact that he can’t see this on his own isn’t the problem — it’s the symptom, just like his lack of friends and interests are. He’s hurting, and depressed, and probably has been for a long time. Trying to reason someone out of depression symptoms won’t work. So absolutely, go to therapy: You deserve help learning how to navigate a marriage with someone who desperately needs treatment but refuses it.

A Heart Act to Follow As Dana Carvey walked through the Washington Convention Center on Friday, he slipped into a soothingly staccato Indian accent. “You should take one baby aspirin a day,” he lectured a woman, another attendee at the American College of Cardiology conference. That’s when Dr. P.K. Shah — the comedian’s L.A.-based physician and the inspiration for this voice — chimed in to critique Carvey’s not-ready-for-primetime advice. Prescriptions vary, cautioned Shah, who noted that although aspirin can reduce the risk of heart attack, it can also cause bleeding stomach ulcers and other side effects. One of those effects is bruising, which Carvey knows well. “I’m a Chiquita banana,” joked the still-boyish-looking 58-yearold. His doctor impression could maybe use some work, but Carvey — who was in town to receive the ACC’s patient advocate award — has plenty of experience on the

other side of the stethoscope. Suffering from chest pain in the late 1990s, Carvey underwent three failed angioplasties and a botched double bypass. (The surgeon operated on the wrong artery.) Then he met Shah, who performed a fourth angioplasty. This one was a success. Carvey has been part of several

famous duos, including “Saturday Night Live” faves Hans and Franz and Wayne and Garth. But his partnership with Shah is more focused on saving lives than getting laughs. They both like to talk about the reason Carvey has his “plumbing problems,” although only Shah can pronounce it: heterozygous famil-

ial hypercholesterolemia. Carvey inherited a gene that allows cholesterol levels to skyrocket and leads to early onset cardiovascular disease. He’s lucky, Shah said, that he got one gene instead of two — that’s called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. “I would not be alive if I was that kind of zygous,” said Carvey, who appreciates that Shah takes the time to help him understand the science. He’d seen another doctor previously who had no interest in answering questions, or as Carvey put it, “He didn’t have a lot of patience with patients.” Shah doesn’t mind when Carvey mimics what he’s saying, because it proves he’s actually listening. Not enough people pay attention to what medicine can do, Shah added. So many heart attacks would be avoidable if more individuals were screened and got preventative care. Part of Carvey’s advocacy is encouraging friends to see doctors. After James Gandolfini’s death last summer, he managed to persuade two friends to get checked out. “They’re both heavy, but clean as a whistle,” he said, gratefully. Carvey, however, has another pal who

Postmenopausal women who consume two or more diet drinks a day have a higher risk for cardiovascular problems, according to data from the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study. People who’ve said “till death do us part” have lower rates of cardiovascular disease. That’s from a study of 3.5 million Americans that showed the correlation holds for both men and women. Springing forward an hour for daylight saving time might do more than throw off your sleep schedule. A study of Michigan hospitals found there’s a spike in patients with heart attacks that Monday. V.H.

worries him. The guy has a cardiologist, but he frequently skips his meds and eats at McDonald’s. Those are risks Carvey would never consider taking, and his commitment has paid off. When his heart troubles began, his cholesterol level was in the high 300s. These days, it’s dropped to 130. “It’s about as good as I can get,” Carvey said. So now he just needs to work on that doctor impression. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Revenge of the Nerds

In Brief

Josh Elliott will make the switch from “Good Morning America” to NBC Sports. TELEVISION

‘GMA’ Anchor Josh Elliott Leaves for NBC Sports “Good Morning America” anchor Josh Elliott told ABC on Sunday that he’s leaving the show for a job at NBC Sports. ABC News President Ben Sherwood moved quickly to replace him, appointing Amy Robach as the “Good Morning America” news anchor. At NBC, Elliott will work on Sunday night football, the Olympics and other events, a spokesman said. A formal announcement is expected later this week. (AP) WEB TO TV

Nicole Richie Taking Her Deep Thoughts to VH1 Former reality TV star Nicole Richie will bring her AOL Web series to VH1. #CandidlyNicole is made up of her musings about everything from parenting to pop culture to random observations. The VH1 version will feature all new content in eight halfhour episodes premiering July 17. (AP)

MUSIC

New Michael Jackson Album to Be Released Epic Records has announced it will release an album of previously unreleased songs by the late Michael Jackson. The album was “contemporized” by top producers, including frequent Justin Timberlake collaborator Timbaland. “Xscape” is due out worldwide on May 13. (E XPRESS)

Television Before he created “Beavis and ButtHead” and “King of the Hill,” Mike Judge was a physics major working as an engineer in Silicon Valley. “It’s a lot of antisocial introverted people thrown together,” he says. “A lot of these guys would not fit in another workplace.” But together, they make a humorous gang of nerds in hoodies, who spend their days writing code in hopes of becoming the newest startup millionaires. That’s the premise behind “Silicon Valley,” his new HBO comedy that premieres at 10 p.m. on Sunday. “Silicon Valley” stars a group of mostly young comic actors led by Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr and Josh Brener, playing programmers who share a suburban house — an incubator — as they work on their various ideas in a town eager to gobble them up. Judge says there’s a reason there hasn’t been a series about the digital boom. “When I did ‘Office Space,’ ” he says, referring to the 1999 cult comedy film, “there was some concern back then about: How are you going to make a movie about people who sit in desks? But I think because there’s not obvious action stuff there, it’s kind of a challenge

Mike Judge’s new HBO comedy series puts the spotlight on desk-bound tech guys

From left, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Thomas Middleditch, Zach Woods and T.J. Miller form a team of nerds in “Silicon Valley.”

Casting

Women and Screens For a show about the tech industry, one often accused of misogyny, it’s not surprising that the only female characters in the opening episodes of “Silicon Valley” are a stripper and an executive assistant. The show’s writer Alex Berg says the nature of the industry “doesn’t authorize us to cast no women.” “We make jokes about it,” creator Mike Judge says. “But we do have female characters coming up in the show.” (T WP)

that ends up yielding really interesting character stuff. I think that ended up happening with this, too.” The show’s first conflict involves a corporate battle over a compression app created by Middleditch’s character Richard. “He totally doesn’t have the best social skills and he frets in his social position,” says Middleditch, who resembles a slacker version of Seth Meyers. For now, the cast resembles the kind of nerd gangs that populate the burgeoning industry, and Judge is happy with the actors portraying them, who mostly came up from improv comedy groups.

“They all seemed like they could play believable engineer types,” says Judge, who rewrote the series to fit them all in. “One thing that’s a little tricky when you’re casting nerds,” he says, “you get all these guys who have been in a million of these commercials where it’s FedEx or something, when there’s a guy sitting at a desk. There’s this real fine line between somebody who is kind of cartoony nerdy and somebody who you believe can play intelligent and be funny at the same time. And I think we have a pretty amazing cast that’s able to do that.” ROGER CATLIN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

More Mischief to Manage: “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling will write scripts for a trilogy of mov-

ies based on her short volume “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” According to the New York Times, the films will take place in New York in the 1930s and will follow the Hogwarts textbook’s fictional author, Newt Scamander. Warner Bros. has not announced a release date or title for the three films. (E XPRESS)

Roz Chast, the great New Yorker cartoonist with the wry style, says she was in denial about the realities of elder care until about a decade ago, when her parents’ health began to fail precipitously. “It’s weird, but I knew nothing about all this,” Chast says. “It was an uncomfortable topic for us, and I didn’t have any siblings [to discuss it with]. I didn’t know if they had a will. I didn’t know about their finances. It was just a lot of stuff that I suddenly had to learn about.” As her parents began to endure hospital stays and growing anxiety and dementia, Chast — who had made a career of cartooning with a

certain neurotic whimsy — began realizing what she was in for. “If you haven’t gone through it, you don’t think about it,” Chast says. It is this “not thinking about it” part that inspired the title of the cartoonist’s memoir, “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” ($20 Bloomsbury USA), out next month. Chast’s reasons for writing it were personal. “I really felt the need to tell this story,” she says. “It sounds really selfish, but this is something I felt so strongly about — that I wanted to write.” Now, as an expert storyteller, Chast, 59, is also able to draw out powerful and poignant scenes from her parents’ final years. Her parents

died two years apart: her father George in 2007 and her mother Elizabeth in 2009. Now, for any closure, the cartoonist would have

to write a memoir. Chast — who began drawing for the New Yorker in 1978 — had published several illustrated books, but this personal work tapped into even greater depths of her talent. Through the hurt, the memoir finds true humor in the specific, like her family home’s “crazy closet,” and the many bankbooks her parents kept for more than a half-century. These passages ripple and resonate with the stuff of deeply lived-in truth. “I love my parents,” Chast says. “I did love them. It’s complicated.” MICHAEL CAVNA ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

FREE Erectile Dysfunction Treatment for D.C. Men! SILVER SPRING • “One-size-fits-all treatment may soon be a thing of the past.” That statement from the renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital refers to modern medicine’s new ability to personalize treatments to the biochemistry of the patient. Personalized treatment is also the basis of a successful erectile dysfunction clinic in Silver Spring boasting a 98% success rate … and an amazing guarantee! That’s right: The Maryland Men’s Medical Clinic promises you’ll have a positive response to a FREE test dose of treatment – right in the doctor’s office -- or else your visit to the clinic is free. That way, you risk nothing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) What happens first is sure to set the tone, but don’t get locked into one way of doing things. Some variety is to be expected later on. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Once you get started, you’re not likely to stop until you’ve reached that goal you set for yourself — one way or the other. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll have a chance to share something you particularly like with someone you think will enjoy it as well. Have some fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) What you’re experimenting with today may bring you in contact with something dangerous, but you can keep just enough distance to protect yourself.
