‘Take That, John 3:16!’ A bus driver’s story that a religious book in his shirt pocket blocked bullets as he was attacked by three men isn’t supported by evidence and testing, Dayton, Ohio, police said Wednesday as they closed the case. Police did extensive testing, including simulating the shots fired into the book, an inch-thick volume containing Bible verses. (AP) TOO LATE!

Veterans Debate Iraq Lessons Chaos leads soldiers to wonder if it could have gone differently

DEVELOPMENTS

The sudden collapse of Iraqi forces in the face of lightly armed insurgents has catalyzed an emotional debate within the U.S. military about a war that, just a few years ago, seemed on the brink of going down in history as a success. In an echo of the post-Vietnam era, some military officers believe the war could and should have been won. They blame civilian leaders — chief among them President Barack Obama — for failing to press harder for a political agreement that would have allowed the military to remain on the ground long enough to secure victory. “Anyone who was there during the surge came away very encouraged about the future of the country if we had continued to stay engaged,” said retired Col. Peter Mansoor, who served as a top adviser to Gen. David H. Petraeus in Baghdad and wrote a history of the latter years of the war. That argument is countered by others who witnessed the chaos of the war up close. On his Facebook page, Maj. Andrew Rohrer, who

Battle for Iraq’s Biggest Oil Refinery Continues

Officials: U.S. Seeks To Replace al-Maliki

Obama Sending 300 Troops to Iraq President Barack Obama announced Thursday that he is sending up to 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help Iraqi military forces deal with an onslaught by radical Islamist fighters inspired by al-Qaeda.

He said the contingent he is sending would operate as “advisers.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

served in Iraq as a junior officer, blamed feuding Iraqi politicians for the country’s collapse, calling the war “an Iraqi problem that we never could have fi xed in a hundred years.” How the U.S. military resolves today’s internal debate could have profound implications for the shape of its future force. Those who blame America’s political leaders for the recent failings in Iraq are more likely to support a big, conventional military. Skeptics are more inclined to champion a smaller military that relies more heavily on precision firepower, technology and advisers. The outcome of this internal debate could also influence the advice that top generals give regarding future conflicts. “Iraq has become a proxy for the debate about Afghanistan, Syria and Iran,” said Peter D. Feaver, a Duke University political scientist and former National Security Council official. For both sides, the debate over who lost Iraq remains raw and emotional. Many of today’s military officers still carry fresh memories of friends killed in battle. “My sadness is not for the Iraqis, but for the wasted effort so many of us gave and bought at so high a price,” said one Army officer.

Cities Battle for Local Minimum Wage Hikes 75 Albany, N.Y.

Dominique Mayfield makes $8.25 an hour washing dishes and busing tables at a Syracuse, N.Y., brewpub. Shantel Walker makes $8.50 an hour at her pizzeria in New York City, where the rent is more than double what it is in Syracuse. Two very different cities, but nearly the same wage. The economic differences between America’s big cities and elsewhere have prompted leaders in Seattle, New York City, Chicago,

San Francisco, Oklahoma City and other cities to push to raise the minimum wage within their borders. The efforts are running into opposition from state lawmakers from both parties and business groups who say a patchwork of minimum wages could lead to a confusing and unequal business climate in which labor costs would vary dramatically from city to city. T he m i n i mu m w a ge h a s emerged as perhaps the top issue of a newly emboldened, urban liberal movement that in many places

is led not by governors or state lawmakers, but by local leaders backed by organized fast-food workers. “So many people have been

pushed out of this city,” said Seattle City Councilman Nick Licata, who successfully pushed to raise the city’s wage to $15, more than $5 higher than the state wage. “Local politicians don’t have the luxury of not doing something.” The fight has lawmakers in many states on the defensive, arguing that higher wages will lead to reductions in hours and jobs for low-income workers — and retail price increases that are likely to hit them hardest.

Recife, Brazil They came in a convoy, more than 3,000 Chileans in cars, motor homes and trailers who traveled for days across the Andes and Argentina to Brazil to support their beloved national team in the World Cup. But they couldn’t afford hotels, so they are staying at campsites. “We wanted to see the country and show the force of Chileans for football,” Matias Inostroza said as the so-called Chilean Caravan crossed western Brazil. The cramped conditions, with five people traveling more than 2,000 miles in one car, had not fazed him, nor did the prospect

of sleeping in a tent. This was the only way the 26-year-old could afford the trip, despite parking cars and waiting tables for four years to save up. Alternative accommodations are making World Cup dreams come true for fans who have had trouble finding hotels or who have refused to pay inflated prices. While the Chileans will be camping out, others will be staying in hostels, subletting apartments and using the Internet service Airbnb, which connects tourists to hosts with rooms, apartments and houses to rent. As in many other countries, the company has taken off in Brazil and saw bookings rise 600 percent during last year’s Confederations Cup. Even former Brazil national team star Ronaldinho put his Rio de Janeiro mansion up for rent — at $15,000 a night.

Fans Happily Rough It in Brazil

In Brief

Some diehard Chile fans have come to Brazil in a variety of circumstances.

120K

The number of foreign tourists Airbnb said its hosts will receive during the World Cup, about 20 percent of the 600,000 foreigners expected in Brazil during the monthlong tournament. Airbnb says guests from 100 countries will use its services.

Not even Brazil’s high crime rates have put fans off from the idea of sleeping in a stranger’s home. The country’s murder rate in 2012 was 25.2 per 100,000, compared to 4.7 per 100,000 in the United States, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The Chilean Caravan arrived at a campsite in Cuiaba, the remote Brazilian city where Chile’s team is based, in plenty of time to join the estimated 20,000 Chilean fans who watched their team beat Australia 3-1 there last Friday. “It is a dream I have had,” said Jose Aragon, 59, who drove the car Inostroza traveled in. “The last chance to see a World Cup in Latin America.” And when their team beat Spain 2-0 on Wednesday, the Chilean caravanners had even more to celebrate.

CIA Toyed With Bin Laden Figure Russia Moves Troops

Back to Ukraine Border

For more than a decade, the CIA has deployed drones, satellites, spies, informants and tracking devices to thwart al-Qaeda in Pakistan. The spy agency also considered a plan to wage war with toys. Beginning in about 2005, the CIA began secretly developing a custom-made Osama bin Laden action figure, according to people familiar with the project. The faces of the figures were painted with a heat-dissolving material, designed to peel off and reveal a red-faced bin Laden who looked like a demon, with piercing green eyes and black facial markings. The goal of the short-lived proj-

ect was simple: spook children and their parents, causing them to turn away from the actual bin Laden. There’s a dispute over how many of the figurines, if any, were ultimately delivered. The CIA says only three were ever made, after which the agency decided to discontinue

the project. But a person with direct knowledge of the project in China said hundreds of the toys were made as part of a pre-production run and sent on a freighter to the Pakistani city of Karachi in 2006. ADAM GOLDMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Russia is resuming its military buildup along the Ukrainian border in an apparent attempt to intimidate its neighbor, NATO’s chief said Thursday as Ukrainian government forces unleashed a major offensive against pro-Moscow insurgents. Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, voicing strong concern about the Ukrainian military onslaught. Putin said he expects the Ukrainian president to immediately launch his plan to end the violence, the Kremlin said. Last month, Putin ordered his military to withdraw from the border in an apparent attempt to ease the crisis. But on Thursday, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that Russia has deployed a

few thousand additional troops to the border, calling it “a very regrettable step backward.” The allegations came as fighting raged near Krasnyi Liman, just east of the rebel stronghold of Slovyansk, a city in the Donetsk region that has been the epicenter of violence during the past two months. Rebel chief Igor Strelkov said in a statement on YouTube that his men were far outnumbered and outgunned and would probably be forced to retreat. Strelkov bitterly scolded the Kremlin for failing to help the rebellion.“I hope that they have enough conscience left in Moscow to take some measures,” he said. But Putin, eager to avoid a new round of crippling Western sanctions, has instead welcomed a peace plan put forward by new Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

CYBER OPERATIONS

The Foot Notes Not all that long ago, when Washingtonians wanted to cross a street, they only had one thing they could rely on: luck. So when a neon “walk”/“don’t walk” sign — one of the first of its kind — was placed at the intersection of 13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW in 1939, it was a hit. (In that, you know, people weren’t.) That pioneering installation paved the way for pedestrian signals all over Washington. And these days, boasts William McGuirk, supervisory general engineer at the District Department of Transportation, the city has more than 1,600 of them.  There must be big plans in place to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this lifesaving technology, right? “If I said, ‘No,’ ” McGuirk replied, “would you be offended?” I’ve decided to take that as an

invitation to host my own pedestrian party right here. It starts with a stroll down memory lane with the Federal Highway Administration’s Br uce Fr iedma n, who notes that even car traffic signals are a relatively recent invention. In the early 1900s, policemen would stand on top of towers in busy intersections and direct vehicles with semaphore, he says. To get a sense of the history of pedestrian signals, he recommends looking through old copies of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, first released in the 1930s. The earliest editions of this scintillating book are mum on the issue of what to do about people on

foot. But by the late 1940s, interest surged. With each update, there’s a new take on what the signals should look like — the color orange was added to the mix, and symbols replaced words.   T hat sw itch happened, Friedman explains, because “people had a hard time understanding t he mea nings of ‘walk’ and ‘don’t walk.’ ” When “don’t walk” began to flash, people would retreat back to the curb. The results weren’t any better in experiments using “start” and “don’t start.” What finally seemed to get the message through to pedestrians, he says, was the countdown signal, which was introduced in the manual in 2003.  D.C. jumped on that technology, McGuirk says, after getting rave reviews when a few countdowns were i nst a l led on t he Ma l l. Washington was one of the first cities to make those types of signals standard, and the first to switch entirely over to LED bulbs, he brags. The innovations have continued with the introduction of “leading pedestrian intervals,” which flip the walk sign on a few seconds before the green light for cars. That gives pedestrians a chance to establish a position in the crosswalk and gives motorists a cue to get ready, McGuirk says. Another cool development: “HAWK” (High-Intensity Activated crossWa lK) beacons t hat let pedestrians halt road traffic without a traditional stoplight. In most spots, you trigger the red light with a button. But one intersection (16th and Jonquil streets NW) uses a camera that can sense when pedestrians are around.  It’s all definitely a step up from that original signal in 1939.

Where Health Needs and Poverty Collide Lebanon, Va. Growing up, Carolyn Underwood remembers her dad coming home covered in black coal dust from the mines. In old age, he suffered from black lung disease. But unlike his daughter, he never worried about how he would pay his medical bills. The union took care of it. That doesn’t make Carolyn Underwood, 63, a supporter of expanded government health coverage. In a region where the decline of the coal industry has sent poverty and health-care needs soaring, another force has grown: antipathy to President Barack Obama and

the Affordable Care Act. “We’ve been hearing too many tales about it. We heard there’s doctors who get to decide — ” Before Underwood could put her finger on the term “death panels,” her sister Nancy Taylor, 62, made a gun gesture with her hand and said “pow!” That sort of sentiment has drawn new attention this month, after a Democratic state senator from Southwest Virginia resigned his seat, giving Republicans the majority they need to pass a state budget without new health coverage for 400,000 poor residents. Phillip Puckett, first elected 17 years ago before his corner of Virginia turned deep red, supported expansion in part because so many of his constituents would have qualified — more than 20,000. But many in Russell County don’t share his view.

Bear Is Sighted, People Go Wild The activity at the National Institutes of Health that gripped bystanders’ attention and lit up Twitter on Thursday was not a medical breakthrough, but an animal one.

parts of Montgomery County on Thursday. The first bear sighting of the morning was near Rockville Town Square. It may or may not have been the same bear seen a few hours later at NIH. Rockville Police Maj. Bob Rappoport said that the first bear, which

he saw lumbering across a parking lot around 8 a.m., is the first he has heard about in Rockville in his 26 years on the force. Black bears are common in Frederick, Md., though, and have been known to venture as far south as Gaithersburg, Md., regularly, Rappoport said. He said that this bear was small — about 150 pounds, compared to the 350- to 400-pound adults he has seen in the wild — and that juvenile bears are sometimes sent away to fend for themselves. This cub might have gone astray. Meanwhile, because it is 2014, as police at NIH surrounded the bear, which was perched in a tree about 65 feet off the ground, humorists created two Twitter accounts for it.

The trail commemorates events leading up to the turning-point Battle for Baltimore, which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the country’s national anthem. Several summer festivals celebrating the 200th anniversary of the anthem as well as the War of 1812 and the major battles in Maryland are planned. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

D.C. Takes Break From Test-Based Evaluations Washington D.C. Public Schools off icials announced Thursday that test scores will not play a part in teacher evaluations next year, a move meant to alleviate anxiety and account for unexpected complications as the city transitions to a new exam based on the Common Core State Standards. “We’re going to hold for one year, work out all the wrinkles, and then we’ll be back” to using test scores for the 2015-2016 school year, said Jason Kamras, the school system’s chief of human capital. D.C.’s decision to pull back from them next year is a sign of the tension that many states are confronting as they prepare to administer tougher Common Core exams at the same time that they’re facing federal demands to hold teachers and principals accountable.

The region’s politics, in fact, help explain the juxtaposition of Virginia’s conservative, Republican-controlled legislature with an increasingly purple state that voted twice for Obama. Puckett’s seat will most certainly go to the GOP in an upcoming special election. It remains unclear what will happen to Medicaid expansion. What is clear is that Puckett’s resignation and the series of events it prompted seem to have provoked a far greater uproar outside Southwest Virginia than in it.

Arturo Interian, Lifetime’s VP of original movies, says the Grumpy Cat movie will be "a little ‘Home Alone’ and a little ‘Die Hard.’ " We say, that sounds about right.

cat that is perpetually overlooked” until a friendly 12-year-old girl comes along and saves her. It sounds slightly less riveting than Lifetime’s usual line-up of true-life murder mysteries. It also sounds pretty profitable for an ugly lil’ cat who, until 2012, had no other prospects but living out her nine lives in total obscurity. Now, thanks to the Internet a nd one sav v y meme agent, Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce) has a best-selling book, a beverage line and an incredible range of iPhone cases, mouse pads and wrapping papers, among lots of other merch.

Grumpy Cat has completed nine of the 10 steps to media domination but still lacks a dramatic fake death.

To try to put a figure to the marvelous memeconomy, we looked up how much money a series of Internet-famous cats could have made annually from YouTube ads, had they enrolled in YouTube’s partner program. To be really clear, not all of them have, and these are just estimates. We’re just trying to determine an approximate value for these cats, not actually sleuth out what they made. And this is just from YouTube videos alone. (TWP)

Behold, t his is t he new memeconomy: with a cute pet, a camera phone and enough Reddit up-votes, you too can cash in! In fact, there’s an entire book on this subject, published earlier

LILBUB.COM

Within 12 hours of the video going online of Tara saving 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo from a vicious dog, the cat’s keepers, the Triantafilo family, had launched a Facebook fan page.

this year: It’s called “How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity: A Guide to Financial Freedom,” and in the entirety of its 128, tonguein-cheek pages it never quite convinced me that it wasn’t secretly sincere. And why shouldn’t it be? Grumpy Cat’s agent, Ben Lashes, told The Wall Street Journal that she netted in “the low six-figures” as of last spring, excluding his cut and her movie deal. Unfortunately, it’s hard to quantify exactly how much memes like Grumpy Cat are worth. There are merchandise sales, pistachio commercials, live appearances in front of adoring fans! There’s no telling how much that could add up to. Bottom line: Cats may be something of a shorthand for Internet silliness, and Grumpy Cat in a Christmas movie may be flat-out laughable. But memes are serious business! So serious, in fact, that “How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity” advises that Grumpy will soon need to upgrade her game: She’s completed nine of the book’s 10 steps to media domination but still lacks a dramatic fake death. “The world needs to imagine itself without your cat in order to truly appreciate his greatness,” it reads. “But you must perpetrate this hoax carefully.” I guess we know what Grumpy’s handlers are planning nex t.

Series Preview

Nationals are in first in NL East despite lackluster year so far

Washington opened a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves at Nationals Park on Thursday. The Nationals entered the series with a 37-33 record, 1½ games ahead of the Braves and Marlins in the NL East.

Nationals

FRIDAY

With a little less than a month to go until the All-Star break, the Nationals have found themselves atop the NL East. However, they’re the first-place team of the worst division in baseball, and there isn’t much separation between Washington, Atlanta and Miami. Though the Nationals have the division lead now, the mentality in the locker room is that the division still goes through the Braves, who are at Nationals Park this weekend for a key four-game series. Despite battling near the top of the division, the Nationals and Braves haven’t exactly lived up to high expectations. Here’s how the clubs have managed to get to this point in the season:

Mike Minor (2-4, 4.42 ERA) vs. Stephen Strasburg (6-5, 3.06 ERA)

7:05 P.M., MASN2

SATURDAY 7:15 P.M., Fox

Julio Teheran (6-4, 2.31 ERA) vs. Doug Fister (5-2, 3.08 ERA) SUNDAY 1:35 P.M., MASN2, MLBN

GETTY IMAGES

MITCHELL LAYTON (GETTY IMAGES)

Ervin Santana (5-4, 4.12 ERA) vs. Tanner Roark (6-4, 2.85 ERA)

The Nationals, who entered Thursday’s game with a 37-33 record, have the worst winning percentage among division leaders.

Below-average hitting Though the Nationals’ bats have picked up considerably in the past month, Washington entered Thursday with the worst team batting average among division leaders at .249. That trend is changing, though, as the Nationals have scored 93 runs in their previous 20 games before the Braves series. Atlanta’s hitting was dreadful before the series-opener, with the Braves ranking 29th in runs (258), 23rd in hits (590) and 21st in batting average (.244).

Stellar pitching This is where both teams have been able to win games. Entering the Braves series, the Nationals held a

Friday’s Matchup Stephen Strasburg has a career 3.86 ERA in 13 starts against the Braves, but allowed six runs, three earned, over 4⅓ innings in his only start against them this season. At home, Strasburg, above, has a career 2.49 ERA, more than a run better than his road 3.57 ERA. The Braves’ Mike Minor has struggled since his return: He has allowed 10.9 hits per nine innings and has given up nine home runs in nine starts. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

combined 3.09 ERA, which ranks second-best behind Oakland’s 3.03. The Braves checked in at seventh (3.41). Neither team has a pitcher with a great win-loss record, which can be chalked up to poor run support. But Braves ace Julio Teheran has a 2.31 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 105 innings pitched. Nationals pitchers Tanner Roark (2.85 ERA) and Jordan Zimmermann (2.98) have been on a roll lately.

Fielding issues Washington’s errors have dropped significantly after such a poor start, but both the Nationals and Braves have had plenty of defensive miscues. Before Thursday’s game, Washington ranked seventh in errors (52) and Atlanta 11th (47).

Atlanta’s .982 fielding percentage ranked 21st, with Washington’s .980 at 26th. The Braves committed four errors while being swept by the Phillies in three games earlier this week.

Head-to-head Despite Washington seemingly having slight advantages over Atlanta in hitting and pitching, the Braves took five of the first six games the two teams played this season. In those games, Atlanta outscored Washington 32-16. Of course, the Nationals have been playing better as of late. “If we want to win the division, it goes through [Atlanta],” right fielder Jayson Werth said. JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Who’s Hot? Anthony Rendon, Nationals: In the two-game series against the Houston Astros, Rendon was 4-for-9 with two runs, two doubles, a home run and four RBIs.

Who’s Not? Jayson Werth, Nationals: The outfielder was hitless in the three games prior to Thursday. But he did draw four walks and score three runs in those three contests.

Going Forward Without Altidore Even after a U.S. win, it won’t be easy to get out of tough Group G

ably the team’s most irreplaceable player. When Klinsmann decided to leave Eddie Johnson off the 30-man roster, and then subsequently cut Terrence Boyd from the final 23-man roster, he ensured the U.S. wouldn’t have another physical striker like Altidore. Altidore uses his strength to hold the ball up and relieve pressure. Against Portugal and then Germany, much like the Ghana match, the U.S. will likely need somebody to provide a respite. Against Ghana, the U.S. averaged just 2.5 passes per possession, the second fewest in any game since Klinsmann took over in August 2011. Without a target forward, the team quite simply couldn’t keep the ball. Dempsey will start at forward again Sunday, but the question is whether he’ll be alone. Johannsson could get the start alongside the Seattle Sounders star, or Klinsmann could opt for Chris Wondolowski, who is more of a poacher than target forward. Regardless of who starts, the American’s task just got a lot harder. Even with an opening win, Klinsmann’s men are up against it now. SETH VERTELNEY (FOR E XPRESS)

WORLD CUP

Emotional Anthem Ivory Coast midfielder Serey Die sobbed uncontrollably through his national anthem before his team’s match Thursday. “My life has always been difficult,” Die said. “It’s true, I thought about my father who died in 2004. I also thought about my tough life — I didn’t think that one day I would be here, playing. This emotion overwhelmed me.” (AP)

And now, the hard part begins. The U.S. national team opened its 2014 World Cup campaign with a 2-1 win against Ghana, but it wasn’t exactly a perfect start. First off, the U.S. was clearly outplayed throughout the match. The Americans were outshot 21 to eight, and outpossessed 59 percent to 41 percent. In between Clint Dempsey’s first-minute goal and John Brooks’ 86th-minute winner, Jurgen Klinsmann’s team was scrambling. Secondly, the U.S. now faces some injury concerns. While several countries saw star players go down in pre-World Cup friendlies, the U.S. made it through unscathed. Unfortunately, its luck ran out against Ghana. Midway through the first half, forward Jozy Altidore pulled up with a hamstring injury and had to be removed on a stretcher. He’s been officially ruled out for the team’s game against Portugal on Sunday, and, realistically, it’d be

U.S. forward Jozy Altidore has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Portugal.

a surprise to see him again this tournament. Altidore’s absence was clearly felt against the Ghanaians. Aron Johannsson was brought on in his stead, but it was hardly an even replacement. While Altidore is a freight train who physically bul-

lies opponents, Johannsson is a slender trickster, known for gliding past opponents and for his scoring touch. And therein lies the problem: The U.S. doesn’t have anyone else like Altidore on the roster. Outside of Michael Bradley, he’s argu-

Suarez Gives Uruguay 2-1 Win Over England Colombia 2, Ivory Coast 1

Luis Suarez scored two goals Thursday in Uruguay’s win over England.

Colombia scored twice in six minutes in a lively second half to beat Ivory Coast. James Rodriguez’s powerful header from a corner in the 64th minute was quickly followed by a low finish by substitute Juan Quintero, securing the South Americans’ second straight win in Group C in front of a partisan pro-Colombian crowd. Gervinho reduced the deficit in the 73rd minute with a superb run and shot inside the near post, but Ivory Coast could not find an equalizer despite a strong finish. (AP)

GETTY IMAGES

Luis Suarez scored twice to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory over England at the World Cup on Thursday, making an instant impact on his return from injury to revive his team’s Group D campaign. The striker lashed in the winner in the 85th minute, after seeing his first-half opener canceled out by Wayne Rooney. The win gave Uruguay’s qualifying chances a major lift and left England’s hopes of advancing to the round of 16 in real jeopardy. Suarez, who hadn’t played for

more than a month after undergoing knee surgery, is the Uruguay player who knows this England side best, having played for Liverpool for more than three years. And by taking his World Cup tally to five goals, Suarez ensured that Rooney’s first-ever goal on football’s biggest stage was in vain at his third tournament. Rooney tapped the ball home from close range in the 75th minute after connecting with Glen Johnson’s pass. Having also lost against Italy, England now faces the prospect of not advancing from the group stage for the first time since 1958.

WhatYou FeeIsWhat YouGet As amenities increase, so do the charges that are passed on to renters

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

Apartment Living Walk through Erin O’Connor’s apartment building at First and M and you might get a bad case of amenity envy. The building offers a lot: a spacious, marble-countered kitchen in the first-floor party room, a pool and outdoor sitting area on the roof, a hot tub, a sauna and a gym with spinning bikes and a studio that offers classes (yoga and Zumba, to name a few). There are even indoor and outdoor theaters. Perks like these are the new normal for many D.C.-area apartments. But, as renters may learn, those extras come at a price: the amenity fee, which can be a one-time cost of a few hundred dollars, or an annual or monthly charge. At First and M in NoMa (1160 First St. NE; 877-242-9963, avaloncommunities .com), the amenity fee is usually $500 — CONTINUED ON R3

though when O’Connor moved in this past November, the onetime fee was waived as part of a promotion. If it hadn’t been waived? “I would have considered it as part of the cost of getting to live here,” says the 32-year-old foreign service officer.

Renting with dogs can be tough, but what about, say, geckos or parrots? Read more in next week’s issue.

And she might have ended up paying as much or more to get those amenities a la carte. Saving money on things like a gym membership was a factor in choosing First and M, says O’Connor, whose junior onebedroom apartment costs $1,850 per month. “That was a big draw,” she says. “I was looking at other buildings, but those didn’t have gyms.” At Liberty Towers in Arlington (818 N. Quincy St.; 866-575-8477, equityapartments.com), where rents start at $2,040 for a one-bedroom and go up to $3,015 for a two-bedroom, renters pay a one-time amenity fee of $100 per resident. “I think it’s a pretty good deal,” says Annie Valentine, 24, who works for a nongovernmental organization and shares a two-bed-

Cost Comparison

Amenity fees are certainly not without controversy. The D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate (202-719-6560, ota .dc.gov) has fielded complaints from renters about fees for storage and parking spaces, pets, gyms, pools and other services, says Joel Cohn, the office’s legislative director. For instance, he says, one tenant in a rent-controlled building was charged a $500 per month air-conditioning fee that Cohn’s office believes was unlawful. In rent-controlled apartments, extra fees beyond the security deposit are more tightly regulated, but for other apartments, the sky’s the limit, he says. “In general, there’s too little regulation in the District of Columbia of amenities,” Cohn says. Matt Losak, executive director of the Montgomery County Renters Alliance, a tenant advocacy group (rentersalliance.org), says he’s noticed a trend in recent years of apartments shifting the costs of amenities to renters, though it’s hard to know exactly why. As rents go up and more fees get passed on to renters, many long-time residents may get priced out of their homes, Losak says. “It’s a big issue and we’re looking into it.” E.B.

Amenity fees on top of high D.C. rent may seem like adding insult to injury, but renters can save money by using in-house amenities instead of shelling out elsewhere. Here are some typical services and costs, and the savings if your building includes them, like First and M in NoMa does. E.B.

— DAV ID FREI SH TAT, A LOCAL ATTORNEY, ON APARTMENT BUILDINGS THAT BOAST NO FEES

The Art of Negotiation If renters have a question or concern about their amenity fees, they could discuss it with their landlord, says Joel Cohn, legislative director of the D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate. Or go the more extreme route and take the landlord to court for a breach of contract. And tricky questions arise when, say, a pool or a gym is taken away or closed temporarily. Will fees be reduced or refunded? In general, it boils down to the terms of the lease, Freishtat says. “If the lease promises a pool and there’s no pool, then go to the landlord and renegotiate,” Freishtat says. “If it says there will be amenities, but it doesn’t say which ones, it might be hard to negotiate.” ERIN BYL ANDER (FOR E XPRES S)

Where Does the Money Go? The way newer buildings distinguish themselves from the competition is the amenities, be it a pool or yoga classes, says attorney David Freishtat of Maryland-based law firm Shulman Rogers (shulman rogers.com).

“You may pay one check to one person, but it may include a lot of different charges for parking, amenities and the rent.”

Unfortunately, standing out from the crowd can get expensive. “[Apartment buildings] need to have those fees to subsidize the additional cost,” he says. For instance, an apartment company might hire a contractor to manage the pool, and then pass along the costs — at least in part — to the renters, Freishtat says. And though some buildings boast no fees, those costs may actually be factored into the rent, he says: “You may pay one check to one person, but it may include a lot of different charges for parking, amenities and the rent.”

QB says ‘no doubt’ he’s gotten better since last season

Meanwhile … The Seattle Times says it will no longer use the word “Redskins” in stories. The sports editor said Thursday the name is “absurd, offensive and outdated.” Other newspapers have also stopped using the Indian reference that many find unacceptable. The newspaper previously had a policy to minimize the use of “Redskins” by keeping it out of headlines and photo captions and limiting it to once per story. (AP)

With the Redskins’ offseason program now in the books, Robert Griffin III said that he has “no doubt” that he has improved since last season. Griffin has spent the past three months learning the offense from coach Jay Gruden and offensive coordinator Sean McVay. He also has spent that time learning how they want him to play his position. The third-year quarterback still admittedly has more work to do. But he can tell he is getting better. “No doubt. No doubt,” Griffin said without hesitation. “That’s how you want to progress throughout your career. I feel like I’m seeing things better. I just feel like an offense, we’re moving better.” Griffin says in addition to the tutelage of Gruden and McVay, last year’s trying season also has helped him improve mentally. He described himself as relieved to have recognized signs of growth, and he likened it to the strides he

made during his track career in high school and college. “When I was running track, when I was a kid, one year, I’d run 57 [seconds] in the 400. Then the next year, I’d run 54, and the next year, I’d run 51,” Griffin recalled. “You’re constantly improving, every year, and knocking those seconds

off and knocking those seconds off. I think that every year, you should get better.” This offseason, Griffin has worked to speed up his release while also modifying his base and improving his accuracy and footwork on dropbacks and rollouts. He says he has a good com-

mand for the offense and could run it well if his team had to play a game tomorrow. But he said he hasn’t yet mastered it. Griffin’s coaches agree with his assessments, however, and have praised his work ethic and development. “He’s done an excellent job,” McVay said Wednesday. The Redskins have five weeks off between now and the start of training camp. Coaches want their players to use that time to get away, refresh and mentally prepare for a rigorous push toward the start of the season. MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

College Sports NCAA President Mark Emmert supports a plan to allow the five biggest college conferences to give athletes more money to cover school costs, but draws the line at paying them beyond that for what they do on the basketball court or football field. Testifying in a landmark antitrust lawsuit filed against his organization, Emmert said Thursday he believes there is a clear difference between the proposal to pay athletes a few thousand dollars more a year and giving them the equiv-

alent of a salary. “You’ve moved into realm where you’re compensating student-athletes for something other than the legitimate cost of being a student,” Emmert said about giving athletes even more money than the conferences are proposing. “You’ve now moved into pay for play.” Under friendly questioning by an NCAA attorney, Emmert also defended the concept of amateurism, which he said has been a core principle from the time the NCAA was founded in 1905 to today. He said college athletics would not be the same if the primary focus

NCAA President Defends His Group in Trial

NCAA President Mark Emmert testified Thursday in a landmark lawsuit.

of an athlete entering school was on getting paid for playing sports instead of getting an education.

Emmert’s testimony came in a much-anticipated appearance as the NCAA tries to convince U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken that its system of so-called amateurism is not anti-competitive and is the best model for regulating college sports. Watching closely from the plaintiff’s table was former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon, who along with 19 other former players is seeking an injunction that would allow players to band together and sell the rights to their names, images and likenesses (NILs) in broadcasts and video games.

New Offense, Improved RGIII Kansas center Joel Embiid has a stress fracture in his right foot.

Embiid to Have Foot Surgery Basketball Kansas center Joel Embiid, one of the top prospects in the upcoming NBA draft, has a stress fracture in his right foot and is scheduled to have surgery on Friday. Embiid’s agent, Arn Tellem, made the announcement on Thursday, a week before the draft. Tellem says Embiid fractured the navicular bone in his right foot and will be unable to participate in any additional workouts. He also will not attend the draft in New York. Embiid was widely considered to be the favorite for the No. 1 overall draft pick held by the Cleveland Cavaliers. But Embiid missed a chunk of last season with a back injury as well and that combined with the foot injury could cause him to slide some on draft night. JON KR AWCZ YNSKI (AP)

A Catchy Enough Tune

Marine Vacth, right, has an odd afterschool job in “Young & Beautiful.”

‘Young & Beautiful’ (UNRATED, 95 MINUTES)

Francois Ozon’s strangely dispassionate “Young & Beautiful” follows Isabelle (Marine Vacth), who is turning tricks after school at 300 euros a pop. Why Isabelle becomes a prostitute is the film’s enduring mystery, and no reasonable theory makes sense. Ozon is clearly more interested in what makes Isabelle’s wrinkled clientele tick than he is in her. Although her relationship with one white-haired customer is mildly touching, it’s almost entirely because of him, not her. But Ozon has created a monster that he can’t seem to let go of. Isabelle seems to terrify Ozon, and I’m not sure I want to know why. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (TWP)

‘Ivory Tower’ (PG-13, 90 MINUTES)

Andrew Rossi’s documentary “Ivory Tower” gets to the bottom of national student loan debt while examining another hot topic: Is higher education, with its skyrocketing price tag, worth it? After all, as the movie shows, some parents are basically bankrolling little more than four years (or more) of keg stands and frat parties. “Ivory Tower” covers a lot of ground, and sometimes the focus feels diffuse. There are so many tricky issues — from massive, open online courses and high administrative salaries to the Silicon Valley approach to education, which generally involves dropping out — that it might not have made sense to try to cover them all. And although some subjects are compelling, they don’t always speak precisely to the point of the documentary. STEPHANIE MERRY (TWP)

Despite some false notes, ‘Jersey Boys’ is mostly harmonious Film Review Movies of musicals are usually a crash course for Hollywood A-listers. Actors not known for their singing skills are suddenly expected to warble their way through a story. You see Renee Zellweger hitting the high notes in “Chicago,” Johnny Depp cutting hair and throats while channeling Stephen Sondheim in “Sweeney Todd” and Hugh Jackman making us weep as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables.” And what of the Broadway superstars who gave the musicals the cachet to warrant the film adaptations? They’re still performing night after night onstage, since their names aren’t recognizable enough to score big box office numbers — much less get proper introductions at the Oscars (ahem, Adele Dazeem). “Jersey Boys” is an exception. The most recognizable stars in Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the Tonywinning play about the 1960s band the Four Seasons are Christopher Walken and that guy from “The Sopranos” (who upon post-movie Googling turns out to be Steve Schirripa). John Lloyd Young plays Frankie Valli, a role the actor originated — and won a Tony for — on Broadway. Young might not be a household name, but he can sing and act onstage and on camera. And the rest of the cast is also made up of musical theater talent: Michael Lomenda, who plays the deep-voiced Nick Massi, and Erich Bergen, as singer-songwriter Bob Gaudio, both return to roles they played during

Seeing Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’ onscreen is a lot like seeing it in a playhouse — and that’s okay. all, the story is dramatic, with its tale of kids from a rough neighborhood who shoot to fame with catchy hit after catchy hit but can’t quite keep it together. Plus, the dialogue is witty and the music is phenomenal. There isn’t a lot of fancy camera work or special effects, and the movie even retains the way characters directly addressed the audience in the play. This particular gimmick feels a little unnecessary in the adaptation. Facial expressions, which aren’t always visible for a theater audience, can do a lot

of explaining in films: When Bob hears Frankie sing for the first time, for instance, a look of astonishment comes over his face before he turns to the camera and says, “After 30 seconds, I know I need to write for this voice.” But we figured that out already. Overall though, fans of the play will be pleased. And for those that love the Four Seasons’ music but haven’t made it to the play, you can put your fear of missing out to rest. This is a much more affordable way to very nearly re-create the experience. STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Michael Ealy, left, and Kevin Hart are wiser, but maybe not more mature, in “Think Like a Man Too.”

Challenge Accepted Michael Ealy says ‘Think Like a Man Too’ ups the romantic ante Film In 2012’s “Think Like a Man,” the comedy came from four men battling it out with their girlfriends, with Steve Harvey’s book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” as the playbook. In “Think Like a Man Too,” out Friday, the same group of friends finds out what happens after happily ever after. “When we finished the first one, there was really no thought of everyone coming back,” says Michael Ealy, who returns to his role as Dominic, a struggling chef paired with his wildly successful girlfriend Lauren (Taraji Henson). “It was like, ‘this is it, OK, bye bye!’ When the opportunity presented itself to do a sequel, the question became, where are Dominic and Lauren now? What is the next challenge?” That challenge (she gets a job

Led by the worst best man in history (Kevin Hart), the group engages in much debauchery, but no one enjoys it much. “Unlike other bachelor-party

movies, we don’t have a lot of fun, and that’s interesting as an actor,” Ealy says. “[It’s hard] to be part of a bachelor party and not enjoy yourself [because you] have your mind stuck on something personal, [but] still try to be there for your boy.” The film’s major conflict is less about men versus women and more about the couples versus new circumstances. “It’s really about what do we really have, and is it worth fighting for?” Ealy says. That fundamental change made the film more attractive to Ealy than if “Think Like a Man Too” rehashed the same issues laid out in the first film. He probably would have done the film anyway, though. “Any time you’re able, and I say blessed, to come back and do a sequel, it means one of two things,” he says. “First, your first movie did really well and everybody wants to see the second one. Two, if you can get everybody back for the sequel, you should have success. To me, that was a recipe for repeat success.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

THE REELIST

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY

A Dark of One’s Own The best part of being a columnist instead of a reviewer is if I don’t feel like seeing “Jersey Boys” (I didn’t) or if I don’t have much to say about “Think Like a Man Too” (I don’t. It was fine.) then I don’t have to write about them. The problematic part is that I’m expected to fill this space weekly with words about movies because apparently people aren’t that interested in how my week is going. (Fine. A little busy, but good.) So this week I went to see “Obvious Child” on Wednesday afternoon, both because multiple people recommended it to me and because I needed something to write about. I am utterly spoiled when it comes to movies. I get stressed when I see movies the “regular” way, rather than at press screenings. I worry about getting there early enough to get a good seat. I don’t like crowds. There’s always someone texting and I’m too cowardly to tell them to knock it off. My brain turns into a taxi meter, continually running up the money

the baby sitter is costing with every preview — and why are there SO MANY previews?! But, oh, when I saw “Obvious Child” (which I loved, by the way. You should see it.) there was such bliss. I bought a ticket. I bought some popcorn. I saw a movie without a notebook in my lap or a meter running in my head. Going to the movies like a normal human was fun for the first time in a long time. Here’s what I want you to do at least once this summer: Go to a movie by yourself, in the middle of the day. Wear your work clothes; it seems a little more sinful that way. “Obvious Child” is only 83 minutes long — catch the 1:15 show at the E Street Cinema and you can be back at work by 3. Everyone will just think you took a long lunch or had a doctor’s appointment. The world won’t end if you spend one afternoon in the dark; in fact, it might get a little bit better.

A Long Search for Nothing Guy Pearce’s brutal performance anchors a bland road trip film The world of “The Rover” is a pitiless expanse, a desolate patch of the Australian Outback 10 years after a Western economic collapse in which survivors roam like snarling, post-apocalyptic zombies, fighting over a broken society’s scraps with Darwinian aggression. If the setting and mood of “The Rover” evokes “Mad Max,” director David Michod still makes those familiar elements his own in a film that, even at its most trite and, ultimately, sentimentally facile, possesses moments of astonishing assurance and austere beauty.

Netflix announced Thursday that Chelsea Handler will host a new talk show that will begin in early 2016. It will update the format of Handler her current E! talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” Netflix said. Handler will end the seven-year run of “Chelsea Lately” on Aug. 26. (AP)

“Wet Hot American Summer” writer and director David Wain announced during a Wednesday appearance on “Late Night” that he’s working on a prequel to the 2001 comedy film. He also said the film will star the original cast, which included Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd and Bradley Cooper. It is not clear if the movie will coincide with the sequel series recently rumored to run on Netflix. (E XPRESS)

100,000

The estimated number of copies sold of

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new memoir, “Hard Choices,” according to Simon and Schuster. The book earns the coveted No. 1 spot on the nonfiction hardcover list of The New York Times that comes out June 29. But its debut was also far slower than that for her previous memoir, “Living History,” which sold around 600,000 copies during its first week. One likely difference: “Living History,” published in 2003, included her first extended comments on the affair between President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. (AP)

dom” — “The Rover” too often succumbs to pseudo-literary pretensions: arty, self-serious posturing meant to disguise its true intent, which is to indulge in pulp violence at its most graphic and fetishistic. The saving grace, in this case, comes by way of Michod’s own poetic sense of framing and composition, as well as a galvanizing lead performance from the great, scandalously underrated Australian actor Guy Pearce. Pearce plays Eric, who becomes reluctantly involved with a gang of criminals who steal his car. While pursuing them to get the vehicle back, he crosses paths with Rey (Robert Pattinson), an intellectually challenged American — working in Australia as a miner — who becomes Eric’s dubious wing-man. The two make their way across the grim Australian landscape like a latter-day “Of Mice and Men,” with Eric imparting filial wisdom and his own skeptical worldview to Rey, who gratefully absorbs it like the abandoned but unfailingly loyal

little brother that he is. Into this joyless world, Michod manages to imprint his own signature, from the way he and cinematographer Natasha Braier move the camera to establish figures within their larger environment, to the startling image of a car turning somersaults outside a diner window while a man obliviously huddles at the counter in the scene’s foreground. (There’s also an amusingly meta scene of R-Patz singing the song “Pretty Girl Rock,” in which he makes a convincing case for accepting him outside his “Twilight” stardom.) As impressive as these flourishes are, what makes “The Rover” more watchable than the average self-conscious genre exercise is Pearce, who exudes such weary authority and palpable vulnerability that he’s sympathetic even in the film’s most brutalizing moments. “The Rover” finally doesn’t add up to much, but if it brings Pearce to the top of more casting lists in the future, it’s well worth the trip.

My husband and I will travel to Paris and Rome this summer for our 30th wedding anniversary.

Manolo says ayyyy! Rome is perfect during the summer, with the crowds of importuning tourists with their sun hats and cameras, and the pushy young backpackers fighting with each other for entrance to the Colosseum, while the various Italian “characters” dressed as gladiators threaten you into having your picture taken with them. (Those swords, they are real!) To say nothing of that most famous tourist attraction of all, the Roman traffic. So muy romantico, with the honking, and the hand gestures, and the six-hour trips from the airport.

“Yeah, it sounds intuitively ‘creepy’ to look for dates based on your exes. But maybe this algorithm only strikes us as creepier than others because it’s the only one we can actually see.”

The company announced its first two flavors Thursday: Lazy Sunday channels the original sketch into a cake batter ice cream with cupcake pieces, and Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch, named after a Kristen Wiig character, will be a whirlwind of toppings mixed with chocolate and sweet cream ice cream.

Sudoku

DIFFICULT

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can capture a bit of past glory, but take care that you don’t let nostalgia get the better of you. Think ahead! CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your interest in what has gone before will serve you well. The past is not only informative, but inspiring to you as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’ll want to be sure that everyone who has signed on is able to fulfill his or her commitment, as agreed. Oversee, but don’t hover. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) How you feel about a certain family dynamic is beginning to change. Try to say things that help, not hinder, personal progress.

Thursday’s Solution

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have the ability to set things straight between two friends who are on the outs. Very soon, things can be squarely back on track. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll hear a calling of sorts and will find yourself compelled to move in a new direction. Don’t let prior commitments slide, however. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) How you report the news to those who need to know will make all the difference. Be positive, yet honest, at all times. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You receive a promise from someone who has remained in the background for too long. You can join forces in an exciting way.

Thursday’s Solution

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.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’re in need of a little expert guidance, and you know just where to go to get it. Later, you can return the favor in your own way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your timing may not be quite as faultless as it has been in the recent past, but you can undo such errors by being honest with yourself.

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.
