GROSS WORDS

At Least She Didn’t Say ‘Moist’ It might be OK for the kids on “South Park” to curse, but it’s not OK for kids at a daycare in San Antonio. A 3-year-old girl was expelled from the Jubilee Child Development Center this week for saying “the ‘S’ word,” News 4 reports. The child’s mother, Cassandra Wright, says she’s “devastated” by the daycare’s zero-tolerance decision. The Center’s director, Alissa Blankenship, however, is standing by the policy.

Fort Hood: Gunman Was Unstable Fort Hood, Texas The soldier who went on a shooting rampage Wednesday at Fort Hood, Texas, had been undergoing treatment for depression and had seen a psychiatrist last month, but Army officials said Thursday they did not consider him a threat before he killed three soldiers and took his own life. Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, the commanding general of Fort Hood, said the shooter, Army Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, had a medical history indicating an “unstable psychiatric or psychological condition.” “We believe that to be the fundamental underlying causal factor,” Milley said. He said there were “strong indications” that the trigger for the shooting spree may

have been “a verbal altercation with another soldier or soldiers.” Milley said Wednesday night that the shooter had “self-reported” a traumatic brain injury from his four-month Iraq deployment in 2011. But officials said Lopez never saw combat in Iraq, and there was no record that he had been wounded. The shootings revived memories of the November 2009 shooting at Fort Hood by Army psychi-

atrist Nidal Hasan that killed 13. Two law enforcement officials said that in March, not long after his arrival at Fort Hood, Lopez legally purchased the .45-caliber Smith & Wesson from a Killeen, Texas, gun shop, Guns Galore — the same store where Hasan bought the weapon he used. In addition to the three dead, 16 soldiers were reported injured. One of those killed, Timo-

What Happened According to base officials, Spc. Ivan Lopez walked into a building at Fort Hood on Wednesday and began firing a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol. He then got into a vehicle and continued firing before entering another building. As he came within 20 feet of a military police officer in a parking lot, Lopez put his hands up but then reached under his jacket and pulled out his gun. The officer drew her weapon, and Lopez shot himself, officials said. (AP)

‘Cuban Twitter’ Built to Stir Unrest Washington The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a “Cuban Twitter” — a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks. The project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba’s stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them toward dissent. Yet its users were neither aware it was created by a U.S. agency with ties to the State Department, nor that contractors were gathering personal data about them, in the hope that the information might be used someday for political purposes.

The U.S. Purpose Organizers wanted the social network to grow slowly to avoid detection by the Cuban government. Eventually, documents reveal, they hoped it would reach critical mass so that dissidents could organize “smart mobs” — mass gatherings called at a moment’s notice — that could trigger political demonstrations, or “renegotiate the balance of power between the state and society.” (AP)

It is unclear whether the scheme was legal under U.S. law, which requires written authorization of covert action by the president and congressional notification. Rajiv Shah, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, said Thursday that it was not a covert program, though “parts of it were done discreetly” in order to

protect the people involved. Shah said on MSNBC that a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found the project to be consistent with the law. At minimum, details uncovered by the Associated Press appear to muddy USAID’s claims that it does not conduct covert actions, and the details could undermine the agency’s mission to deliver aid to the world’s poor and vulnerable. For more than two years, the project — dubbed “ZunZuneo,” slang for a Cuban hummingbird’s tweet — grew and reached at least 40,000 subscribers. But documents reveal that the team found evidence Cuban officials tried to break into the system, and ZunZuneo vanished abruptly in 2012. USAID told the AP that the network stopped in September 2012 when a government grant ended. ALBERTO ARCE, DESMOND BUTLER AND JACK GILLUM (AP)

Jet Search Full of False Dawns Despite data, hunt for Flight 370 has still turned up nothing

“So far, the satellite calculations have only directed us to oceanic garbage dumps.”

Bangkok At the time — the evening of March 24 — it seemed like the breakthrough the world was waiting for. In a hastily called speech, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that an unprecedented analysis of satellite signals concluded that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 “ended” deep in the Indian Ocean, far from any possible refuge for the 239 people aboard. Finally, there was a solid explanation for what happened to the aircraft. A much more focused search could begin, and so perhaps could the grieving process for families from 14 countries. Najib’s announcement quieted wild speculation about desert islands and terrorists and covert operations. But four weeks after the plane disappeared, the apparent pivot

Weeks of searching in the Indian Ocean have turned up no signs of Flight 370.

in the search is proving to be not much of a pivot at all. Not a single piece of wreckage from the lost plane has been found, not even after a new analysis led investigators to change the focus of their search yet again. The latest search area is based on extremely limited satellite data combined with radar data taken some five hours before the plane is believed to have gone down. It is, as one search offi-

cial said, “a very inexact science.” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, whose country is coordinating the search effort, spoke of “very credible leads” and “increasing hope” a day before Najib’s announcement. But on Thursday he said the search has become “the most difficult in human history.” Each unsuccessful day adds to the skepticism. “Until we find a positive con-

A chapter in transatlantic relations that Washington would sooner forget got a new lease on life Thursday as German lawmakers opened their first parliamentary hearings into the Edward Snowden scandal. Revelations of U.S. spying on Germans, including Chancellor Angela Merkel, prompted an initial wave of outrage in Berlin last year. But now, the lengthy committee investigations could keep the spotlight on leaks by the former NSA contractor for a year or two to come. The hearings also have the potential to provoke further antipathy. Indeed, a number of lawmakers in Germany are now demanding

safe passage to Berlin for Snowden to testify before the committee. Such a move is considered a long shot, in part because it would create fresh tensions at a time when Europe and the United States are trying to maintain a common front on the Russian-Ukraine crisis. But some in Germany seem to believe that bringing Snowden to Berlin is exactly the kind of thumb-nosing the Americans deserve. The committee is set to call dozens of witnesses and review piles of documents. But even its members appear to concede the limits of their effort, which is likely to be hampered by an anticipated lack of full cooperation by U.S. officials. ANTHONY FAIOLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

crete shred of evidence — a piece of the aircraft — everything else is just conjecture, and it could be totally wrong,” said Capt. Ross “Rusty” Aimer, a former pilot who now runs Aero Consulting Experts. Affected families have lashed out at Malaysian authorities for essentially declaring their loved ones dead without any firm proof. Najib said Thursday that everyone involved in the search is thinking of the families’ suffering. “I know that until we find the plane, many families cannot start to grieve,” he said. “We will not rest until answers are indeed found. In due time, we will provide a closure for this event.” TODD PITMAN (AP)

Share the Road The cherry blossoms aren’t out yet, but one sign of spring sure is: the tourists. And a heck of a lot of them are on two wheels. I can say this with certainty, in part because I was nearly mowed over by a family of cyclists while walking near the Air and Space Museum on Tuesday. Capital Bikeshare — aka CaBi — acts like a bright red billboard all over the city, touting how easy it is to get around town by bike. In theory, this should be awesome for Bike and Roll DC, the rental and tour company that’s operated in the District for 15 years. “We used to say someone on Bikeshare isn’t a lost customer but an additional cyclist,” says Catharine Pear, Bike and Roll’s marketing director. But that view has shifted as CaBi, which launched in 2010, has expanded its network of stations, particularly to the Mall.

“That’s a stick in our spokes, so to speak,” she says. Another problem? People confuse the two, according to Pear: “I say, ‘I know the rack is full, but that’s not us.’ ” To make sure that at least hotel concierges know the difference, Pe a r pr o v ide s t he m w it h a comparison card. Some major points: Unlike Bike and Roll, CaBi doesn’t offer tours, helmets or any kid-sized equipment. (CaBi’s onesize-fits-all bikes are technically off-limits to anyone 15 or younger.) The other big difference, Pear notes, is price. Bike and Roll

customers pay $35-$60 for a 24-hour rental (depending on the type of bike), which includes a helmet, lock and map. CaBi charges $7 for a one-day membership that covers unlimited short rides. But if folks don’t redock their bikes every 30 minutes, usage fees apply, and they can get stuck with a much higher bill than expected. As the 2014 season gets underway, Bi ke a nd Rol l is changing lots of gears. The company just moved its headquarters from the Old Post Office Pavilion to L’Enfant Plaza. It’s also changed the address of its location in Alexandria. The fleet of rentals at Union Station is doubling in size, and a new location is debuting this month in front of the MLK Jr. library (901 G St. NW). It’s well located for tourists downtown who want to take the Ninth Street bike lane directly to the Mall, Pear says. And in addition to Bike and Roll’s regular Trek comfort bikes, that spot will also rent a dozen “European, commuterstyle bikes,” she says. As a tie-in to the “DC Cool” tourist campaign, each one will be named after a celebrity depicted in the National Portrait Gallery’s “American Cool” exhibit. “Basically, they’re a lot cuter,” Pear says, and riders can tell friends they took a spin on Johnny Cash. A fifth location is in the works to open this summer, too. More outposts is undoubtedly more convenient, but if I were running Bike and Roll, my tactic would be to add more tours and introduce themed rides. Locals without bikes of their own could be a fun new market to tap into — and a way to stay on course even when the tourists go home.

Road Slogans: Drivers know “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” Next up: “U Drive, U Text, U Pay.” Texting and using hand-held cellphones while driving lead to an estimated 424,000 deaths and injuries each year, according to federal statistics. So Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is launching a national campaign to emphasize that there will be a price paid by those caught doing so while driving. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A huge tidal wave of pent-up pollen could be headed our way Washington Goodbye, polar vortex. Hello, pollen vortex. It turns out this brutally cold, miserably long, snowfest of a winter did more than wreak havoc on the bundled mid-Atlantic masses. It also caused elms, cedars and other trees that typically flower early in the year to hold off for warmer weather. Now, with more springlike days finally in the forecast, those trees are poised to pollinate alongside oaks, cottonwoods and pines, as well as some grasses. The result could mean a perfect storm of pollen in coming days — and an especially miserable stretch for allergy sufferers.

Search of D.C. Park for Missing 8-Year-Old Ends

“Grab your Kleenex,” said Susan Kosisky, chief microbiologist at the U.S. Army’s Centralized Allergen Extract Lab. “It’s coming.” Every day on the roof of Kosisky’s lab in Silver Spring, two small greased rods spin through the air, collecting pollen particles. She said that over the past 15 years, the average daily measurement for the first week in April is about 353 grains per cubic meter of air. That figure can spike to more than 4,000 at the peak of the allergy season. This week’s most recent reading: 109 grains per cubic meter. That’s good news for many allergy sufferers at the moment. But it suggests a tidal wave of pent-up pollen could be headed our way as the area heads toward the height of allergy season later this month. “As soon as we get four to five days of sunshine in a row, we’re going to see the buds on the trees

explode and people are going to be really suffering,” said Clifford Bassett, medical director of Allergy & Asthma Care of New York. Soon, the cars and sidewalks that have remained snow covered through much of the winter (and spring) could be coated in a familiar yellow-green dust. And many people will be trading in winter coats for runny noses, itchy eyes and uncontrollable sneezing. The danger of a shorter but more intense allergy season, specialists say, is that it could overwhelm immune systems, triggering potentially serious health issues. Mark Scarupa, an allergist at the Institute of Allergy and Asthma in Maryland, said it’s difficult to predict the severity of any allergy season. “Like the weatherman, we can get it wrong pretty bad,” he said.

A bee is covered with peony pollen during the 2011 spring in D.C.

Surviving Spring Here are some tips from New York allergy specialist Clifford Bassett: Wear oversized sunglasses to block airborne pollens and molds. Wear a hat, preferably one with a wide brim. Consider exercising indoors on very high pollen days. Get confirmation that you have seasonal allergies and begin treatment even before symptoms start. Shower and shampoo nightly to rinse pollens from skin and hair. Change clothes before entering your bedroom to keep pollens out. Keep the windows closed and set your air conditioner to “recirculate.” Clean filters in room air conditioners frequently. Eliminate weeds from your yard and plant allergy-friendly greenery. (T WP)

Gray Says ‘We’ll See’ if He Will Support Bowser Washington

Washington The intense weeklong search for Relisha Rudd in a Northeast park ended Thursday with no sign of the abducted 8-year-old girl. Police, firefighters, cadets and volunteers had spent days trudging through underbrush and diving into a river and ponds at the 700-acre Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens searching for a “potential gravesite.” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Thursday that searchers were relieved they did not find Relisha dead, but she said it has been difficult that authorities have not been able to determine what happened to her. “It’s heartwrenchingly frustrating,” Lanier said. “We don’t have answers about where she is … we just don’t.”

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray would not promise to support his party’s nominee, Muriel Bowser, in the November general election in his first comments since he was ousted Tuesday in the city’s Democratic primary. Gray also acknowledged he had yet to place a concession call to the two-term Council member, who bested an embattled Gray by 12 percentage points. “Well, we’ll see, we’ll see what’s coming,” Gray said when asked if he would support Bowser’s candidacy. Gray’s decision is not surprising in one regard: On the campaign trail last month, Bowser said the investigation had changed the Democratic party dynamic since four years ago, when Gray beat Adrian Fenty, Bowser’s political patron, and she and others in the party rallied behind him. “Last time I used the logic that

Meanwhile … Mayor Vincent Gray’s final D.C. budget plan, released Thursday, rejects several of the most ambitious and controversial tax reform proposals endorsed by a blue-ribbon commission last year. Included in the proposal is a new, lower-income tax bracket for filers earning $40,000 to $60,000. Not included are the recommendations for more dramatic changes to the income and sales tax structures. (T WP)

Mayor Vincent Gray won the Democratic primary fair and square so I should support him,” Bowser said. “Then I found out that he didn’t actually win the Democratic primary fair and square so … I could not support somebody who would be almost indicted.” A ARON C. DAVIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Regardless of how the Washington Nationals have fared athletically in the past, it’s safe to say the area around the park is batting a thousand. Within the past 20 years, more than $1.4 billion in public money has been invested in the Capitol Riverfront, which spans the area from South Capitol Street to 15th Street SE and from I-395 to the Anacostia River. Most recently, the 500-acre neighborhood has witnessed a flurry of notable new restaurants (eight of which opened in 2013, bringing the total to 21), multiple large-scale residential developments (more than 4,100 people now

Chef Antonio Burrell (the opening chef for Masa 14) concentrates on Mexican classics at this waterside newcomer from the owners of Capitol Hill’s Zest. A sun-drenched dining room plays host to lunch, brunch, dinner and, of course, margaritas, including cucumber and blood orange varieties. In addition to a traditional and crab guacamole, expect dishes you’d find on the streets of Mexico City, including tacos, jicama salad and yucca fries.

After five years of development, the Neighborhood Restaurant Group opened this tri-level brewery behemoth in October. The ambitious draft list includes 25 rotating options (including five cask ales), all made in-house. At Arsenal, the 200-seat restaurant inside, executive chef Kyle Bailey whips up elevated snack food (burgers, deviled eggs) and dishes that veer toward finer dining (braised pork cheeks, clams casino, sweet potato gnocchi).

This is the third iteration of the lauded New York City-born Italian restaurant. Executive chef Matt Adler’s menu reads like a love letter to Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, the birthplace of prosciutto di Parma and mortadella. Pastas are handmade in-house and can be topped with a number of rustic ingredients, including a beef, pork and veal ragu or a clam, leeks and chili sauce. Also of note: the extensive list of cured meats and house-made charcuterie.

Pro tip: Bluejacket hosts free tours on non-gameday Saturdays starting at 10:30 a.m., which include a complementary tasting pour. Also, the patio and grill open an hour early (at 10 a.m.) for Friday’s home opener.

Pro tip: Beginning Saturday, Osteria Morini will serve brunch. Think eggs Benedict topped with shrimp, and ricotta pancakes with whipped mascarpone. We repeat: ricotta pancakes with whipped mascarpone.

Ryan Zimmerman, Nats: The third baseman has a hit in each of the first three games of the season. He tied his career high with four hits, including a homer, Thursday against the Mets. Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark allowed two runs on six hits and earned the win Thursday against the New York Mets.

TANNER ROARK AND TAYLOR JORDAN BOTH BEING WORTHY OF THE NATIONALS’

Roark got his first start of the season Thursday against the Mets. Originally slated to pitch Friday’s home opener against Atlanta, Roark filled in for Jordan Zimmermann, who was experiencing flu-like symptoms. After a shaky 31-pitch first inning that saw him give up two earned runs, Roark settled down and threw five consecutive scoreless innings in Washington’s 8-2 win over the Mets. After the slow start, Roark finished strong by striking out the side in the bottom of the sixth inning. These early-season games will give Williams a good look at who will ultimately be the Nationals’ fifth starter.

SETH WENIG (AP)

NO. 5 JOB IN THE STARTING ROTATION

Nationals 8, Mets 2 The Nationals rallied past the Mets 8-2 on Thursday for an opening threegame sweep. Washington’s leadoff batter reached in the first seven innings, and the Nationals rallied to win for the third time in the series. While Washington opened 3-0 for the second straight season, the Mets fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2005. They had not lost their first three home games since 1997. (AP)

Roark would seem to have an advantage after Thursday’s start, as well as the fact he posted a 7-1 record and a 1.51 ERA a year ago. “It’s definitely a huge opportunity,” Roark said last week. “I’m going to do what I can. Go out there and get outs. Put up zeros and attack hitters.” However, Jordan had a productive spring, striking out 20 batters in 20⅔ innings pitched. After throwing a simulated game Tuesday, Jordan is slated to pitch in Sunday’s series finale against the Braves. Jordan’s specialty is his sinker, which causes many batters to put the ball on the ground. In nine starts last year, Jordan recorded 77 groundouts from 102 ground balls. He gave up only three home

runs in 773 pitches. “The hard work is paying off,” Jordan said. “I just got to keep staying with the program I’m doing and keep on working hard to stay up here as long as I can.” Roark got off to a good start this season in his first outing. Jordan will need the same Sunday to stay in the mix for that fifth starting position once Fister returns. “Both have proven themselves worthy of that spot,” Williams said. “Now, with the adjustments we’re going to have to make, they’re both there, which is a good thing. It’s not one over the other. They both have done really well and have proven they can handle it. We’re in the situation we’re in and both are going to have to pitch.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Who’s Not? Bryce Harper, Nats: So far this season he’s hit second, fifth and sixth, but nothing has worked. He was 2-for13 with six strikeouts in the threegame series in New York.

It hasn’t been an easy road for any of the Final Four teams — well, except maybe Florida. The Gators have four double-digit wins over teams seeded 16, 9, 4 and 11. But the other three semifinalists — UConn, Kentucky and Wisconsin — have all squeaked out wins on their way to Arlington, Texas. Here’s a look at each Final Four squad’s most essential winning factor and the likelihood of its opponent shutting it down. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)

The Reason They’re Here No. 7 UConn

No. 1 Florida

No. 8 Kentucky

No. 2 Wisconsin

Key to winning: Ryan Boatright scoring. Shabazz Napier is the Huskies’ do-everything guard, but his backcourt mate is the key. In UConn’s last five losses, Boatright has averaged 9.2 points while shooting 27 percent from the field. The junior has scored in double-digits in each of UConn’s tournament games. Napier won’t be able to win this thing alone.

Key to winning: Hitting 3s. Florida isn’t a great 3-point shooting team (it ranks outside the top 120 in the country in 3s per game), but it’s a different team when Michael Frazier II is hitting his outside shots. The Gators, who have just two losses this year, are undefeated this season when they hit more than five 3-pointers in a game.

Key to winning: Offensive rebounding. Kentucky’s shooting struggles are offset by a frontcourt that hits the glass. In their four tournament wins, the Wildcats have 55 offensive rebounds. Julius Randle has led the charge and has 26 double-doubles this season — including each tournament game. Four of Randle’s single-digit rebound games have been Wildcats losses.

Key to winning: Sharing the ball. The Badgers went through a tough midseason skid when they lost five of six games. In those five defeats, Wisconsin averaged just 9.8 assists a game. But the Badgers’ offense has been clicking in the tournament, averaging 14.3 assists a game. Traevon Jackson, who’s had five assists in each of the past three games, is the key.

Can Wisconsin stop it? The Badgers are one of the worst rebounding teams in the country — ranking 261st — but they allowed a total of seven offensive boards in their first two tournament wins.

Can Kentucky stop it? The Wildcats have the size and speed to get in passing lanes, but they averaged just 4.8 steals per game — 312th in the country. They’re more prone to erase good shots at the rim.

Can Florida stop it? In their four tournament games, the Gators have allowed an average of 55 points, and only six players have scored in double-digits against Florida in its past three games.

Final Four Schedule

Can UConn stop it? One of the Gators’ two defeats was to UConn, who held Florida to just three 3-pointers in a 65-64 win in December. On the season, the Huskies allow opponents to hit 33.3 percent of their 3s — ranking 120th in the country.

Now the Terps can derail the highly anticipated showdown of unbeatens in the national championship game. Fourth-seeded Maryland plays Notre Dame on Sunday with both national semifinals featuring rematches. UConn beat Stanford in November, while Maryland let Notre Dame escape 87-83 on Jan. 27 in College Park, Md. The Terps are led by All-American Alyssa Thomas and are in the

Coach Brenda Frese and the Terps are in the Final Four for the first time since 2006.

Final Four for the first time since their lone title in 2006. Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said Maryland’s win at Louisville in the regional final in front of a crowd of 14,000 was impressive.

“They’re very dangerous,” McGraw said of the Terps. “I think they’re a great team. They’re a team that has really, really kind of hit their stride lately. I think they’re playing great basketball, and when

you have a great player like Alyssa Thomas, who just really continues to lead them in so many areas, they’re a tough matchup.” Notre Dame had Natalie Achonwa in the first game between the two teams, but foul trouble limited the forward to 21 minutes and seven points. That might ease the Irish’s concern after losing their top rebounder to injury. The Irish shot 58.5 percent that night, but Thomas scored 29 points in helping the Terps come back from a 41-19 deficit and even taking a lead before Notre Dame pulled out the win to remain perfect on the season. McGraw believes that game might have been a turning point for the Terps, especially for fresh-

Frese credits that game, along with a loss to UConn, with giving her Terps the confidence they could play with anyone. “The expectations are high with Notre Dame and UConn for a reason,” Frese said. “They’ve backed it up all season long with their undefeated record. But we just want to be true to who we are and continue to keep fighting and battling and scrapping and see where it takes us.” TERESA M. WALKER (AP)

A Do-It-Yourself Approach DAVID J. PHILLIP (AP)

Alzner says everyone is trying to play the hero and be ‘the guy’ Capitals

Creighton’s Doug McDermott holds up his AP player of the year trophy.

PATRICK McDERMOTT (NHLI VIA GETTY IMAGES)

One player cannot drag the Capitals out of the hole they have dug for themselves. Out of a playoff spot with six regular-season games remaining, each teammate is fighting the urge to carry the load single-handedly. 7 P.M. Friday | NBCSN

“Everyone wants to do it and be ‘the guy,’ ” defenseman Karl Alzner said. “Sometimes it’s being 20 guys, not just ‘the guy.’ It’s just doing your job. And I think sometimes we don’t necessarily do enough of that and we try and do more than our job.” As the Dallas Stars seized control in their 5-0 victory Tuesday, Capitals coach Adam Oates admonished his players not to stray from the game plan. Yet in an attempt to play the hero as the Capitals’ deficit ballooned, players deviat-

ed from their assigned roles, opting for the home-run play instead of keeping things simple. “We’re yelling as fast as we can on the bench to stop that,” Oates said. “And every guy’s yelling and they go out there and do it. That’s kind of a human nature thing. I’ve experienced that a lot in my career. When it’s going down the tubes, it goes down the tubes fast.”

Following a wildly successful California road trip two weeks ago, the Capitals have lost four straight to put their postseason hopes in serious jeopardy. As of Thursday, Washington had a 6.6 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to the website SportsClubStats.com. For the Capitals to salvage what is left of their season, a concerted

Wizards Reach One of Their Goals The Wizards (39-36) are right where they expected to be at the start of training camp — in the playoffs. “When I first got traded here, of course, there were questions on what’s going to happen and what will the team look like,” said Trevor Ariza, who joined the Wizards in 2012. “There was always talent here, but can we put it together and make something, was the question. We did. We reached one of our goals.” The Wizards, who clinched their first postseason berth since 2008 on Wednesday, drafted John

edit to both president Ernie Grunfeld and coach Randy Wittman that he wouldn’t accept missing out on the postseason again. “From day one, these guys have made it playoffs or bust,” forward Al Harrington said. The Wizards are just 1½ games behind Brooklyn for fifth place and have a two-game lead over the Charlotte Bobcats and can’t act like they take off the rest of the season. “I mean you celebrate tonight and get ready to go on the road and win another game,” said Wall, whose team plays the Knicks on Friday at Madison Square Garden.

effort will be required, players say. “It’s not going to be one guy. It’s going to be everybody,” forward Jason Chimera said. “You can’t win [a playoff series] with one guy. We’ve seen that before. If one line’s off, you’re not going to go through. “Everybody’s got to be their best. And if not, we’re not going to make it.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Marshall, McDermott Honored College Basketball Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall is growing accustomed to being center stage at the Final Four. He just wishes his team was with him this time around. After leading the Shockers to the national semifinals a year ago, Marshall deftly guided them through a perfect regular season, earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. While they were done in by Kentucky in the third round, by then the votes had already been tabulated. Marshall was the runaway winner of the AP coach of the year award. He accepted his hardware during a news conference Thursday at AT&T Stadium, where the Wildcats will play Wisconsin and UConn will meet Florida in the national semifinals Saturday night. Creighton star Doug McDermott was a near-unanimous pick as the AP player of the year after a senior season that left him the fifth-leading scorer in Division I history. McDermott received all but one vote from the 65-member panel that votes for the top 25. Russ Smith of Louisville received the only dissenting vote. “This is a huge honor,” McDermott said. “It’s been a heck of a ride. It has been a great four years.” DAVE SKRET TA (AP)

From a 3-0 loss at home to Columbus to start the year, to a 1-0 loss at Toronto FC, to a 2-2 draw last weekend at home to the Chicago Fire, results seem to be trending in the right direction. “I think every game has gotten better for us,” midfielder Perry Kitchen said after the Chicago

match. “I think if you look back at the Toronto game, that was a step up from Columbus and this game’s definitely a step up from Toronto, so we just have to keep building on it and working forward.” With two home games against struggling Eastern Conference rivals coming up, United now needs to turn whatever momentum it has been building into wins. The New England Revolution come to town Saturday, followed by the New York Red Bulls the following weekend. Playoff teams last season, the Revolution and Red Bulls have just one win between them this season in seven games. United will likely have to play

7 P.M. Saturday

both games without starting central midfielder Luis Silva, who suffered an ankle injury against the Fire and could miss multiple weeks. Davy Arnaud, a natural central midfielder who’s been playing out wide for United, will step into the middle, with Lewis Neal the most likely candidate to play on the flank in Arnaud’s stead. With Silva’s injury and Chris Pontius still out indefinitely, the team made a move Wednesday to improve its midfield depth, acquir-

ing Chris Rolfe from the cashstrapped Fire for allocation money. Rolfe, 31, is an MLS veteran who has experienced plenty of success in his career stateside, including winning the Fire’s MVP award just two seasons ago. He’s also been capped 10 times by the U.S. national team, and it’s not difficult to envision him taking on a prominent role with United, even with the eventual returns of Silva and Pontius. United should have Rolfe ready to go against New Engl a n d , a s t h e t e a m l o ok s t o turn its small bit of momentum into its first win of 2014. SETH VERTELNEY (FOR E XPRESS)

Refresh Your Rental Spring into cleaning your apartment using these tips and tricks from pros Apartment Care For Ken Cho, spring is the perfect time to re-evaluate and refresh his apartment. “I’ve been renting for about five years straight, and for whatever reason I’ve always moved in the winter,” he says. “Spring cleaning is the first crack I get at really buckling down and truly settling in.” That means taking stock of his possessions, getting rid of anything he doesn’t need and cleaning his pad from top to bottom. “During the winter, I’m not that motivated to clean,” says Cho, 42, who works as a travel agent and rents in Navy Yard. Spring cleaning is a ritual for many people. And for apartment dwellers, it’s a way to help ensure that you’re truly getting the most out of your smaller-size home. “Spring is a great time to look at your surroundings, especially in apartments

where there’s not a lot of space,” says D.C.-area professional organizer Rachel Strisik Rosenthal (301367-6479, organizedinabox.com). It’s the time to refresh and prepare for “something new,” she says. If the thought of spring cleaning sounds about as fun as a root canal, don’t panic. We’ve rounded up tips to make the process less daunting.

nextweek Does your rental have you seeing stars? Next week’s issue explores what it’s like to rent in a place that famous folks once called home.

Who Does What? Once or twice a year, you might notice your landlord or property manager cleaning the exterior of the building’s windows or polishing the lobby’s floors. But when it comes to the actual units, landlords tend to leave most cleaning-related tasks to tenants, waiting until the apartment turns over before shampooing carpets or scouring tile. Most leases require that renters keep their units clean enough to prevent pest infestations and other problems. If tenants’ housekeeping skills aren’t up to snuff, it could be cause for eviction. D.C.-based Borger Management (202-898-1880, borgermanage ment.com) has employees inspect its properties twice a year when changing the batteries on smoke detectors. “If we find something

Still can’t convince yourself to pick up a rag or run the vacuum? It might be time to call in the pros. Many apartment dwellers can get away with once-a-month visits from a cleaning service. If you have pets or allergies, you might want to consider twice a month. Some companies charge a flat rate depending on home size. The Cleaning Crew of Capitol Hill, for example, charges $80 to $100 to clean an efficiency and $125 to $150 for a onebedroom apartment. Other companies, like Maid to Clean, charge based on time. So if you’re not willing to lift a finger, expect to pay more. “You’ve got to do a little bit of picking up and putting away so you’re not paying us to pick up your underwear and shoes and newspapers,” Maid to Clean’s Cinderella Bermudez says. B.L. like food sitting out, we send the tenant a notice,” says company spokesman Jason Hogan. One task most landlords take care of: changing filters on air conditioners. Improperly or infrequently changed filters can make the system work harder than it needs to and circulate more dirt and allergens through the air. “Landlords want to make sure it’s getting done,” says Matthew Moore, a landlord-tenant lawyer at Potomac, Md., law firm Shulman Rogers, (301-230-5200, shul manrogers.com).

Spring Cleaning

Don’t forget: Ceiling fan blades are an easy place for dust to settle.

Gather Your Supplies

Stick to a Plan

It doesn’t take much — a bucket, dish soap, towels and a vacuum is all you need. “You don’t need to go out and buy $50 worth of cleaning stuff,” says Cinderella Bermudez, owner of Alexandria-based cleaning company Maid to Clean (703299-0101, maidtoclean.com). Maxwell Ryan, CEO and founder of popular website Apartment Therapy (apartmenttherapy.com), suggests finding recipes for ecofriendly cleaners online and inviting friends over to whip up batches. “People always think of cleaning as a solitary thing,” he says. “This sort of turns it around.”

To ensure that you don’t get distracted by old yearbooks or episodes of “House of Cards” on Netflix, make a cleaning plan. Choose a day to declutter first, then pick another for cleaning. Rewarding yourself also helps. Ryan likes to spend one weekend cleaning and the next weekend on a little retail therapy to replace things like sheets or rugs. “It gives people a strong incentive to get through the dirty work,” he says.

Bust Dust Properly You might use a Swiffer duster from time to time. But to truly clean,

From Boardroom To Living Room? Office-to-apartment conversions could be D.C.’s next big thing Trend Watch Many developers in Manhattan, Chicago and Philadelphia are converting office space into new apartments, catering to the livework-play lifestyle sought by young professionals. It’s even happening in Baltimore: A 34-story downtown office building at 10 Light St. is slat-

ed to reopen in 2015 as a 445-unit apartment building. The trend has been slow to catch on here. With its steady supply of government agencies, law firms and contractors, D.C. has had little incentive to cut office space. But that may be changing: Cuts and new initiatives have curbed office leasing by federal tenants. Law firms are also reducing leased office space and creating multipurpose spaces. Office rental rates are projected to trend lower through 2014.

think beyond the surface of objects. “You have to go behind and under too,” says Sharron Jones, owner of the Cleaning Crew of Capitol Hill (202-397-2012, cleaningcrewof capitolhill.com). Ideally, you should vacuum weekly. But if you’ve been less than diligent, spend some quality time with your vacuum. Once you’ve tackled flooring, use attachments to suck up grime from baseboards, crown molding, door frames and ceiling fans, spots often overlooked. “The dirt and dust that collects at the top of the blades is not obviously noticeable unless it’s really thick,” says Roger Taylor, CEO of D.C.-based concierge and cleaning service Your Pampered Home (202-370-6704, yourpampered home.com).

Improve Your View If you typically don’t do windows, now’s the time. Grabbing an Express can literally help: Ryan recommends using vinegar and water with newspaper to clean windows. “It’s a strange thing to do the first time,” he says. But newspaper’s coarseness helps scrape off oils, and it doesn’t leave streaks or lint. Don’t forget to wash window sills, frames and tracks too. And clean whatever covers your windows, whether curtains or blinds. Once you’re done, you’ll probably find that the view inside your apartment has improved as well. After all, no one’s going to notice your graphic dhurrie rug or art collection if it’s shrouded in grime. BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRES S)

Factor in the apartment boom (more than 23,000 units are under construction), and momentum is gaining. There has already been a flurry of conversions since 2011. Projects such as Sky House converted two Southwest Waterfront office buildings into 530 apartment units at the beginning of this year, and a recently announced plan will convert a Crystal City, Va., office building into 300 micro-units. And perhaps more telling: Developers are even recasting some proposed office building projects in D.C. as apartment projects. D.J. O’BRIEN (CAPITAL BUSINES S)

The New Falcon Is A Fighter Film

though, “The Winter Soldier” is superbly made and well-acted, neatly setting up the next few installments with just the right enticing sense of ongoing mystery. As ever, perhaps the biggest lingering question has to do with whether S.H.I.E.L.D.’s sharpelbowed superheroes will work together as a functional team or go their own idiosyncratic ways.

For Anthony Mackie, landing the role of the Falcon in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” meant inking his dream deal. “I would send Marvel an email, like every four to five months,” he says. “I was calling saying, ‘I’ll work for free.’ About two years ago they sent me a letter saying, ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you.’ ” Rough ly si x mont hs before f i l m i ng b e ga n on “The Winter Soldier” in April 2013, directors Mackie Anthony and Joe Russo offered Mackie a role in the comic-book adaptation. “It was epic,” recalls Mackie, who admits he didn’t know much about the character Sam Wilson, who becomes the Falcon, one of the first African-American superheroes in a mainstream comic. “I read up on him and immediately got into the gym,” he added with a laugh. “I thought if I am wearing that much spandex I have to be in shape.” Mackie was cast in Eminem’s 2002 biopic “8 Mile,” while a student at Juilliard. Since then, he’s appeared in more than 30 movies including Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar-winning war thriller “The Hurt Locker.” Mackie hopes to tell the story of a pioneer who helped break down barriers for African-Americans — that of Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens. “The great thing about the Falcon is, it’s put me in a position to where people are willing to have those conversations about Jesse Owens,” he said. “I feel like it’s a story that has to be told.” Mackie attests that if given an opportunity, he’ll f lourish. “That has been my motto in life,” he added. “If you let me in the door, then I’m there to stay.”

JESSICA HERNDON (AP)

A National Treasure The latest chapter of ‘Captain America’ is a monumental flick Film Review “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” brings back one of the most mild-mannered superheroes of the Marvel Avengers franchise, the clean-cut, square-jawed Steve Rogers. A baggy conglomeration of deep character development and aggressively percussive action, “The Winter Soldier” is a comic-book movie only in its provenance. In its relentless violence and dark political subtext, this might be the most grown-up Avengers episode yet. “The Winter Soldier” finds Rogers — now fully defrosted after being cryogenically preserved during World War II —

trying to get up to speed on such late-20th-century developments as grunge music and Thai food, aided by Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Other beloved S.H.I.E.L.D. figures are on hand here as well, including Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders). One of the great strengths of the Avengers mega-franchise has been its canny casting, and “The Winter Soldier” is no exception: Chris Evans once again brings a clean-cut, straight-shooting air of simplicity to Steve’s principled paragon, even evincing a whiff or two of prissy self-righteousness along the way. Happily, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have

decided to make “The Winter Soldier” something of a two-hander between Steve and Natasha, who as portrayed by Johansson continually threatens to steal the entire movie with her slinky martial arts moves and sultry, smoky-voiced one-liners. (If Hollywood was waiting for proof that the Black Widow was ready for her own installment, here it is.) At a running time of more than two hours, “The Winter Soldier” easily could have trimmed its longwinded action set pieces, extravaganzas of gunplay, all-engulfing fireballs and loud lashings of shattered glass that begin to feel repetitive by the film’s Big Finish. For all of its overstatement,

In its relentless violence and dark political subtext, this might be the most grown-up Avengers episode yet.

Every Little Thing Is Magic

The only thing I remember was the lecturer pointing out that Lecter’s dinner included two lamb chops, and there were two cops — a visual hint that, for Lecter, cops and food are one and the same. And I thought, “Seriously, give me a break. They’re LAMB CHOPS.” As I learned more and more about film, I started to know better, and now closely reading small scenes is my favorite thing to do. I’ve found that a filmmaker who controls the details can make a devil of a film. As evidence, allow me to submit “Cap-

tain America: The Winter Soldier,” out Friday. There will be one TEENY-TINY spoiler. At one point, Robert Redford is in his apartment. He opens his fridge, and then turns. And over his shoulder, on the top shelf, is a jar of Newman’s Own spaghetti sauce, label neatly facing out. Redford and Paul Newman are together again on screen. It’s a lovely, funny, selfreferential moment, and I want to shake the hand of the set dresser who thought of it. Does it advance the plot? Nope. Character? I guess we can assume Redford’s char-

Once, in college, I went to a film lecture — not because I was particularly interested in film, but because I wanted to show my then-boyfriend how smart and cultured I was. Students were doing presentations on “The Silence of the Lambs,” and one presenter examined the scene where Hannibal Lecter escapes from custody after getting very bitey with a couple of cops.

acter likes good spaghetti sauce, because Newman’s Sockarooni is the BEST. (I cannot confirm it’s actually Sockarooni in the fridge.) That attention to detail is evident again and again throughout “Captain America.” There are so many frames loaded with layered meanings that it’s really frustrating I can’t talk about them without majorly spoiling the movie. Direc-

tors Joe and Anthony Russo use the cinematic frame not only for fun moments like the spaghetti sauce, but also to communicate the larger questions the film raises: Who’s watching the bad guys? And, possibly more importantly, who’s watching the watchers? If you’re currently in a film class, go forth and write a paper about the thematic function of glass in “The Winter Soldier.” I

‘Raid’ Packs a Punch, but Lacks a Heart Film Review

‘The Raid 2’ (R)

SONY PICTURES CLASSICS

“The Raid: Redemption,” which kicked and slugged its way out of Jakarta, Indonesia, two years ago, was a work of diabolical genius. Its follow-up, “The Raid 2,” is equally diabolical. But this time the genius is intermittent. The first film was basically a nonstop action sequence, set almost entirely in a gangster-infested tenement. Beleaguered SWAT cops fought their way to the top of the building, and one of them prevailed through the brutal, claustrophobic combat. “The Raid 2” features the same hero, Rama (Iko Uwais). The brawling itself is every bit as inventive

As a result, Uco’s actions put Rama in the middle of a gang war. The plot allows for a broader range of locations, scenarios and, yes, fights than the first “Raid.” But the movie is also a playful selfindulgence for Evans, a devotee of violent Japanese cinema. Evans has lots of ideas, but the good ones are mostly visual. When a bat-wielding thug swings and connects, the camera spins as if it took the blow. That’s a great moment, but it — like everything in the movie that works — is just pure sensation. MARK JENKINS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

It was part of the deal, but it was also part of what I feel as a woman wanting to put yourself into such suffering. It’s something I do understand.” Gainsbourg relates Joe’s masochism to act ing. “I haven’t explored and put myself into that extreme experience, but I do understand the masochism. For me, there’s a little glimpse of that in acting. It’s very extreme to talk in that way but when you put yourself into emotions, you have to like the suffering a little bit,” she says with a slight smile. “Of course there’s pretense, but you do believe in what you’re expressing.” Gainsbourg has become a regular in the films of von Trier, a Danish auteur whose films can be disturbing.

Reviews for both installments of Lars von Trier’s film “Nymphomaniac” (the second volume of which is in theaters Friday) have emphasized the graphic depictions of Charlotte Gainsbourg’s character, Joe’s, sexual encounters with many men. But Gainsbourg says it’s not just about the sex. “I don’t think the film is only about nymphomania,” Gainsbourg explains. “It also has to do with the discovery of who she is.” As the film opens, Joe is in a ditch, badly beaten and resisting the help of a stranger because she doesn’t feel she deserves any assistance. “The fact that she wants to portray herself as such a human being responsible for what’s happening, I have a lot of tenderness for her. I don’t agree at all, so I couldn’t feel the character was close to me. But the emotions were,” Gainsbourg stresses.

past three films, but it’s a collaboration that almost didn’t happen. Another actress was slated for her role in von Trier’s “Antichrist” but dropped out at the last moment. “I came up to Copenhagen, [Denmark,] met with him quite briefly,” she remembers. “He seemed so troubled. Very troubled. I felt maybe as a reaction to his troubledness, I felt so normal and uninteresting.” If the man is clouded in mystery, his process is, too. “He pushes you in directions and tells you when he thinks you’re pretending, and that’s no good. That’s the only direction he gives me: ‘I don’t believe what you did, so do it again.’ It’s very exhilarating to work that way. You feel complete freedom because he doesn’t give you any indication before the first take. He lets you explore, and in a way, it’s nerve-racking. You know you’re not going to go in the right direction, and it’s going to be terrible, but you still have to push yourself to go there.” As for the future, Gainsbourg is taking a break from films to work on a new album, this time with an emphasis on composing. “It’s this wonderful thing with music that I’m able to express myself.

Two Brothers Born to Rock Streaming The best thing about “Mistaken for Strangers,” a new documentary about the band the National, is that you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy it. As much as the film hews to admiring rock-doc footage of its subjects, it also portrays them as prone to the self-serious-

ness that makes indie musicians such cliches. That “Mistaken for Strangers” walks that tightrope so deftly is because it was made by Tom Berninger, who, as the younger brother of National lead singer Matt, suffers from that amalgam of pride, envy and affection one might expect from the sibling of a star.

In 2010, as the National was embarking on the biggest tour of its career, Matt invited Tom to come along as part of the road team. The twist is that, as Tom confesses early in the film, he’s not a big fan of the National. He also has some long-buried issues with his brother that inevitably come to the fore during their sojourn. What might

have been just another promo piece instead becomes a funny and poignant depiction of art, family and the intricacies of brotherly love. With its tight running time of just over an hour, “Mistaken for Strangers” saves the very best for last, in a moving final sequence that somehow explains everything there is to know about two guys who, despite different temperaments, always have each other’s back.

‘Mistaken for Strangers’ (Not Rated) Director: Tom Berninger Stars: Tom Berninger and Matt Berninger In a Nutshell: Tom Berninger chronicles his time spent on the road with the National, the band fronted by his brother, Matt. Available Via: Amazon Instant, iTunes and on-demand cable

Errol Morris spent more than 30 hours interviewing Donald Rumsfeld. He sifted through thousands of memos — “snowflakes,” Rumsfeld called them — from the former secretary of defense and architect of the Iraq war. Yet at the conclusion of so much investigation into the mind of Rumsfeld, Morris says he’s left with nothing but the grin of a Cheshire Cat. Morris calls his latest, thickly ironic documentaMorris ry, “The Unknown Known,” a “fable” about a man stuck “in some Looney Tunes world of his own devising.” Morris is still clearly rattled and mystified by Rumsfeld. Some have said your film fails to reveal more about Rumsfeld.

It doesn’t matter what the question is. It’s never, under any circumstances, going to be answered. I came to a conclusion about all of this — it’s my hunch — that he’s not hiding anything. He’s hiding the fact that he’s hiding nothing. To me it’s a horror movie. His evasive replies can often be witty and almost comical.

They’re comical except that they involve war, the terrible loss of life, the destabilization of entire areas of the world. Both Iraq and Vietnam for me — I came of age during the Vietnam War — and not to minimize the death and destruction, but part of it for me was the destruction of an idea about America. Though you’ve done considerable research, this is a first-person film. You seem to believe strongly in the power of the interview to unlock mysteries.

always fascinated me — an interior monologue. It’s not quite interior because it’s being spoken. … How people describe themselves is a powerful way in. It’s a powerful way in to figuring out how they see the world, who they are. You seem to have an obsessive nature.

I have these twin obsessions, I’ll fess up: pursuit of truth and the avoidance of truth. A lot of people have said, “Why bother examining this? It’s over and done with.” I don’t agree with that sentiment at all. I think it’s really important to examine it. There’s probably more to be learned from untruth than truth, from false belief than from true belief. Maybe there’s more to be learned from nonsense than from non-nonsense. You’ve interviewed all manner of disturbed individuals. Does Rumsfeld haunt you more than others?

It’s a good way of putting it. I think he does. JAKE COYLE (AP)

Anita Hill was grilled by the Senate over her accusations against Clarence Thomas.

Spurring Change Past the Charges Film Review When Anita Hill traveled to Washington in 1991 to testify that Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her years earlier, the country tuned in. Hill alleged that Thomas spoke explicitly about big-breasted women and pornography, not to mention the now-infamous Coke can pubic hair. Despite all the drama, Thomas went on to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, but Hill spurred lasting change for how we deal with sexual harassment. Freida Lee Mock, Oscar-winning director of “Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision,” brings Hill’s story to the screen in a deftly edited

‘Anita’ (NR) Director: Freida Lee Mock In a Nutshell: In 1991, Anita Hill captivated the world when she accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of unwanted sexual advances, igniting a discussion about sexual harassment and race.

retelling of the events. Now teaching at Brandeis School of Law, Hill is a feminist advocate with a strong fan base and a calendar full of speaking engagements. Mock’s biases are clear here, and her documentary does at times feel a bit too worshipful of its subject. The director glosses over “the other woman” who was prepared to testify and bolster Hill’s claims. Still, the documentary remains a powerful time capsule. It’s a reminder of what we were and, thanks to Hill, how far we’ve come. STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Dave’s ‘Late Show’ Retirement David Letterman says he’s retiring next year as host of “Late Show.” During a taping of Thursday’s show, Letterman said he has informed his CBS bosses that he will step down in 2015, when his contract expires. Letterman has hosted the show for 21 years, and has the longest tenure of any late-night talk show host in U.S. television history. (AP)

Bash From the Past We’ve been raising our highball glasses (and sometimes, sporting embarrassing vintage clothes) at “Mad Men” watching parties since 2007. (That’d be 1960 in MM years.) Now, just before AMC debuts the first part of “Mad Men’s” seventh and final season on April 13, the network dips into another historical era — the American Revolution — with the premiere of the patriot spy drama, “Turn” (9 p.m. Sunday). The 1770s thriller centers around the Culper Ring, a real-life group of secret agents in cahoots with George Washington. Plus “Turn” provides as many reasons for eating, drinking and dressing up as its 1960s cousin. JENNIFER BARGER (E XPRES S) 1969: ‘MAD MEN’

1776: ‘TURN’

An old-fashioned (a combo of bourbon, bitters and citrus), Don Draper’s gulp of choice, in a vintage glass.

WHAT TO DRINK

Ale (maybe warm, maybe not) in a pewter tankard. If you’re a royalist, toast the show’s British officers with the rum they suck down on “Turn.”

Unless you’re old guard (Don, Roger), 1969 leans groovy, baby. Think mini skirts and berets for the ladies and fringed vests for the guys.

DRESS CODE

Trust us, a tricorn hat ($17, amazon.com) can be a terrific icebreaker for either sex.

PRESHOW TUNES

Think anything combining fiddles, penny whistles or maybe a nice drum. (Too bad you aren’t friends with Mumford & Sons!). For historical accuracy, you can download the reel- and march-heavy “Birth of Liberty: Music of the American Revolution” ($10, itunes.com).

WHAT TO EAT

Food shortages and bad crops abound in “Turn” (the main character is a cabbage farmer-cum-spy). But, instead of starving guests in the name of authenticity, feed them pork (served often on the show), maybe some nice BBQ with cabbage slaw.

DECOR

Is it dark in here? Yes, it is, because it’s 1776 and electricity hasn’t been invented. So light your fete with candlesticks and trot out anything old and silver you’ve got (it’s super reflective). A bust of George Washington might be cute, too.

Download a mix that combines ’69’s blend of hippie folk and angsty rock, aka liberal doses of The Rolling Stones, The Who and Joni Mitchell. If you own a tambourine, feel free to bring it out during commercial breaks, which AMC still, sigh, has.

TWENTY-THREE EXHIBITORS

Left, Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) and Don (Jon Hamm) star in “Mad Men.” Right, from left, Kevin McNally, Burn Gorman and Jamie Bell appear in AMC’s new “Turn.”

Some Nixon-era food is gross. Cheese fondue and pigs in a blanket are not, and are easy to serve around the TV. Also apropos: Jell-O desserts. For inspiration, try midcenturymenu.com.

Season 7 shows that the 1970s were fast approaching, decor wise. Fill your pad with macramé hangings, shag rugs, low-slung sofas and, if you go that way, atmospheric bong smoke.

FACE TIME

Paul Lowe If you enjoy having fun and eating delicious things, you’ll dig Paul Lowe. The creator of Sweet Paul magazine, a print/online food and crafts publication, he just published “Eat & Make” ($30, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), a book of simple recipes and DIYs. He’ll sign copies at Anthropologie on Saturday at 11 a.m. (3222 M St. NW) and at Salt & Sundry on Sunday at 11 a.m. (1309 Fifth St. NE). Where do you find inspiration for your crafts? I’ve been saving up empty egg cartons and saying, “Speak to me. Say to me what you want to be turned into.” Everyone can go out and spend $200 on materials and make something pretty. The perfect craft project costs almost nothing and takes between half an hour and an hour. Was it difficult for you to share all your family recipes? I’ve known people who go to their

grave with a recipe, and I think it’s silly. It’s very rewarding to share with people and get feedback. Plus, it’s not brain surgery. People can figure out how to make most things. What is your background? I don’t h ave a ny e duc at ion whatsoever. I’m a high school dropout. I realized very early that mathematics and chemistry weren’t for me. I was a florist for 10 years and did some product styling before starting the magazine. Nothing

What’s your favorite part about producing Sweet Paul magazine? It’s liberating because I don’t have to run anything past anyone. If I want to do a story about sun prints or ice sculptures or the color blue I can do it. Does your Norway upbringing influence your cooking? It ’s my background, and it ’s something that’s important to me. I love salmon, I love dill, I love anything that has fish in it. There are certainly things that are very Scandinavian and I try to make them a little more American so everyone can enjoy them. That’s important to me. It’s a pretty book, but I really want people to use it. Have you been to D.C. before? I’ve been once. It wasn’t the best experience because it was January and it was snowing and it was really, really cold. We pretty much just stayed in the hotel the whole time. I do remember having some really excellent Ethiopian. Was it difficult to move to New York City and leave Oslo, Norway, behind? Sometimes you just have to take a chance. For me, leaving Oslo and coming to New York City was an amazing thing, because I had grown tired of what I was doing, and when I moved here I had to start all over again. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

DEAR MANOLO

THE LATEST CONTESTANT in

D.C.’s blow dry bar wars opened its pink-filled digs last month in Dupont Circle.

ANSWERS FROM THE SHOE BLOGGER

My junior prom is coming up, and I’ve decided that, rather than look like a Disney fairy princess or a highclass prostitute, I want to be elegant and restrained in a little black dress that’s not too short. I need shoes that add color, and, because I’m in high school, money is an issue.

Sales as Old as Time YOU’VE LIKELY never seen a salad that looks like Sisu Kind Food’s before. That’s because the mixes — prepared in Mount Pleasant — come in a Mason jar ($8 plus $1 jar deposit, Each Peach Market, 3068 Mount Pleasant St. NW; 202525-1725). The vegan mixes rotate seasonally and include dressing varieties like chipotle and tahini.

Lucky for us, they have good taste. Though they concentrate on well-priced, mid-century modern furniture (wood credenzas run $500-$900), you’ll also find a few art deco furnishings and home accents from the 1970s.

finest finery: the frock coat, striped trousers, silken waistcoat, top hat, spats and his finest walking stick, which, the truth be told, was not that different from what he normally wore to school each day. Because the Manolo was the fashion reporter for the school newspaper, it was his job to stand on the red carpet and interview the most splendiferous couples as they arrived in the rented limousines, dressed in the illfitting tuxedos and polyester hoochiemama gowns. “Ayyy! You look fabulous darling. Who is this you are wearing? Fernando of Tulsa? It is smashing, this combination of rhinestones and pink rayon!” Here is the Red Carpet Kelli from the E!

— JOSH PETRI AT DIGG.COM waxes poetic about the life span of his past umbrellas, and researches what makes for a durable umbrella. Petri recommends steel parts, solid construction and a double canopy. The one problem with his requirements, Petri says? That umbrella doesn’t come cheap. And you’ll probably lose it anyway.

“But unlike the Ed Hardy ties, and Nike Belts in my wake, I’m here to help you from making dumber decisions than I have in the past.”

“Who would pay to see 98 Degrees without Nick Lachey, or the Spice Girls without Ginger? Every group has their lead — even if they assure you that in harmonies, everyone is created equal.”

— JON RYAN AT CLOTURECLUB.COM helps young men in D.C. learn how to dress for their first job. Ryan offers three looks: “The Showman,” who sports wide lapels and French cuff shirts; “The Southern Gentleman,” who wears bow ties and linen suits; and “The G-Man,” above, who favors dark suits and power ties.

— LINDSEY WEBER AT VULTURE .COM wonders how a reunion tour of

O-Town, an early-aughts boy band that once rivaled the Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, will fair without its baby-faced front man, Ashley Parker Angel, above center. He apparently opted for nothing instead of all …

“Well this makes me want to read a book.” — @NICKBILTON, a New York Times columnist, reacts to tiii.me, a website that calculates how much time you’ve devoted to a certain television show. All five seasons of “Breaking Bad” can be binge-watched in only 2 days and 14 hours! Totally worth it.

“His declared possessions on his Web site are three cellphones – one of which is an iPhone and another doesn’t actually work.” — ADAM TAYLOR AT WASHINGTONPOST.COM

describes the frugality of new Nepali Prime Minister Sushil Koirala, who may be, as Taylor puts it, the world’s “poorest world leader.” The other contender is Uruguay’s President Jose Mujica, who the BBC previously declared the poorest, and whose only possession, Taylor writes, is a 20-yearold Volkswagen Beetle worth $1,900.

Sudoku

DIFFICULT

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may be asked to match another’s efforts, yet you are likely to feel as if expectations are just a bit too much for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will want to approach things in a more conservative fashion than usual, perhaps. Conditions suggest caution throughout the day. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Others are likely to follow your lead. Give them what they want — an opportunity to shine as you have done. Be generous whenever you can. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You can save a little money and still enjoy a certain luxury that is right up your alley. A friend is ready to start something new. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can pledge loyalty to another’s cause without giving up on your own. There is room for both on the docket for a few days to come.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) There is more time available to you than you had first suspected, but there is certainly not enough to waste!

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You may be considered an all-star of sorts, and today you’ll have the chance to demonstrate why — especially to your critics. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have the power to unite conflicting factions around a single urgent cause. What happens as a result may be worth remembering.

Comics

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your rivals may be applying a great deal of pressure on you, but you can certainly return the favor before the day is out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Though you may not succeed the first time, you’ll have the chance to redeem yourself later on. Subsequent efforts are memorable.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.
