Building the Benghazi Case A suspected ringleader of the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans was ordered held without bond during a Wednesday hearing in D.C. federal court. Ahmed Abu Khattala, who has pleaded not guilty to a single conspiracy charge, was seized in a secret raid in Libya in June. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

In court documents filed late Tuesday, prosecutors alleged that Abu Khattala’s motivation to attack the U.S. facilities sprang from his extremist anti-Western views. They said many of his associates in the Ansar al-Sharia militia have been identified as being among a group of 20 or more armed men who gathered outside the U.S. mission on Sept. 11, 2012, and who later “aggressively breached the gate” before entering the facility, setting fire to the property and stealing a U.S. vehicle. In the days that followed the Benghazi attacks, prosecutors said, Abu Khattala tried to obtain equipment and weapons to defend himself from possible U.S. retaliation.

Prosecutors Say Suspect Held Extremist Views

This artist’s rendering shows Ahmed Abu Khattala being sworn in during a June 28 hearing.

The Evidence

The ‘Place Holder’ Charge

According to a U.S. official who has reviewed the case against Abu Khattala, the evidence includes photographs and video from the attacks, testimony from witnesses, and evidence of the attacks’ planners boasting of their involvement.

U.S. officials said they consider the conspiracy charge, which carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment, a “place holder” to avoid revealing more evidence while a search for witnesses continues. In the coming weeks, a superseding indictment is expected to bring additional charges, including ones that carry the death penalty.

“In the days before the Attack, the defendant voiced concern and opposition to the presence of an American facility in Benghazi.” — Prosecutors in the case against Ahmed Abu Khattala, in court filings

Arthur Will Only Ruin Some Holidays Charleston, S.C. SURVEY SAYS

America: Home of The ‘Kinda Free’? Happy Independence Day from Gallup, which reported a big drop in Americans’ perception of how free they are. Since 2006, the number of Americans surveyed who said they are “satisfied” with the freedom they have “to choose what they do with their lives” dropped 12 percentage points — from 91 percent to 79 percent in 2013. The percentage of Americans saying they are dissatisfied doubled, from 9 percent to 21 percent, Gallup reports. The U.S. is ranked 36th in perceptions of personal freedom. Uzbekistan ranked higher.

As one of the year’s busiest travel weekends approaches, so does another visitor: Tropical Storm Arthur, expected to grow into a hurricane by the Fourth of July and hit most harshly at North Carolina’s Outer Banks. The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season prompted a hurricane warning for a wide swath of the North Carolina coast and a mandatory evacuation of Hatteras Island. On Wednesday afternoon, Arthur was about 220 miles south of Charleston, S.C., and moving north about 7 mph with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. The National Hurricane Center predicted it would grow to a Category 1

hurricane with sustained winds of at least 74 mph by Thursday. The forecast did not call for a landfall in the U.S., but officials and travelers north to New England kept an eye on the storm’s projected path. Many areas warned of rain, wind and potential rip tides.

The worst of the storm should occur at Cape Hatteras, N.C., about dawn Friday, with 3 to 5 inches of rain and sustained winds up to 85 mph, said Tony Saavedra, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service. But forecasters said that by later Friday, the effects of Arthur would be past the Outer Banks, with the rest of the weekend — and most Friday night fireworks shows — salvaged. (Though Ocean City, Md., is postponing its fireworks until Saturday, just in case.) The Hurricane Center predicted the storm would be off the coast of New England later in the day Friday — so it may be too rainy for fireworks in Cape Cod, Mass., and that region — and eventually make landfall in Canada’s maritime provinces as a tropical storm. BRUCE SMITH (AP)

It’s All Pomp And Patriotism Until Someone Burns a Limb Washington The number of fireworks-related injuries soared to their highest level in more than a decade last year, according to a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report released last week. An estimated 11,400 injuries were reported in 2013, a 31 percent climb over the year before. As one might expect, a majority of the fireworks-related injuries last year occurred in the month surrounding Independence Day. The commission studied the 7,400 injuries reported between June 21 and July 21.

Among the Findings: Men were more likely to be injured than women, 57 percent to 43 percent. Roughly half of the injured were 25 or younger. Children under 4 accounted for 14 percent of the injuries. Which fireworks caused the most injuries? Sparklers. They accounted for 2,300 of the 7,400 injuries reported during the study. The flickering wands burn at roughly 2,000 degrees and often wind up in the hands of children. Hands and fingers were the body parts most likely to be burned or otherwise hurt, accounting for 36 percent of injuries during the study. STE VEN OVERLY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Scientists Withdraw Report on Stem Cells

NASA Launches Satellite

U.S. and Japanese scientists who reported that they’d found a startlingly simple way to make stem cells withdrew that claim Wednesday, admitting to “extensive” errors in the research. In two papers published in January in the journal Nature, the researchers said that they’d been able to transform ordinary mouse cells into versatile stem cells by exposing them to a mildly acidic environment. Someday, scientists hope to harness stem cells to grow replacement tissue for treating a variety of diseases. (AP)

Was Teen’s Killing for Revenge? Palestinians accuse Israeli extremists of burning Arab’s body

“Who else could do this? There’s no one else.” — SA ED A BU K HDEIR, FATHER OF

Jerusalem Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the “reprehensible murder” and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. “The settlers have killed and

burned a little boy,” Abbas said, accusing Israel of tolerating settler violence toward Palestinians. “I demand that the Israeli government hold the killers accountable.” The death added to the already heightened tensions caused by the killings of the three Israeli teenag-

ers, whose bodies were discovered Monday more than two weeks after they disappeared in the West Bank. Israel accused Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza, of being behind the abductions, which led to the largest ground operation in the West Bank in nearly a decade,

with Israel arresting hundreds of Hamas operatives. The discovery of the bodies led to a national outpouring of grief, with tens of thousands of people attending a funeral Tuesday. As the burial took place, hundreds of young, right-wing Israelis marched through Jerusalem screaming for revenge. Hours later, relatives of Mohammed Abu Khdeir said the teen was forced into a car in Jerusalem. A burned body was found shortly afterward, and the teen’s father said police had identified it as his son’s through DNA tests, The New York Times reported. JOSEF FEDERMAN (AP)

Al-Maliki: Entire Region in Peril Baghdad

Islamic Worry Rises

Fresh from success in Iraq, a Sunni extremist group tried to tighten its hold Wednesday on territory in Syria and crush pockets of resistance on land straddling the border where it has declared the foundation of an Islamic state. Embattled Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki warned that the entire region is endangered by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, whose gunmen have recently rampaged across his country. Facing pressure to step aside, al-Maliki said the focus must be on countering the threat, not leadership changes. The militant group has fed off the chaos and sectarian atmosphere

of Syria’s civil war to seize control of a large chunk of territory there. With its recent blitz across Iraq, it has effectively erased the border between the two countries. The group this week unilaterally declared the establishment of an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the land it has seized. It also named a leader and demanded that all Muslims pledge allegiance to him. Al-Maliki warned that the group’s self-proclaimed caliphate meant “no one in Iraq or any neighboring country will be safe from these plans.” The group’s declaration was “a message to all the states in the region that you are inside the red circle now,” he said.

Bigfoot Discovered? DNA testing is taking a bite out of the Bigfoot legend. After scientists analyzed more than 30 hair samples reportedly left behind by Bigfoot and similar mythical beasts like the Himalayan Yeti, they found all of them came from more mundane creatures like bears, wolves, cows and raccoons. But one researcher hasn’t concluded they don’t exist. “The fact that none of these samples turned out to be (a Yeti) doesn’t mean the next one won’t,” said Bryan Sykes of Oxford University, who led the research.

D.C. Principals Try Selling (Public) School Washington D.C.’s traditional public school system is sending principals out to knock on doors in a campaign to sell itself to city families, an aggressive move to boost enrollment and maintain market share after years of ceding ground to charter schools. The move is a sign of the tremendous pressure on D.C.’s traditional public schools. Charter schools now enroll nearly half the city’s public school students, and they continue to gain popularity. To train principals in door-todoor canvassing, school officials have hired campaign experts who helped Barack Obama win the presidency.

“I’ve got to keep my school open and growing,” said Principal Kennard Branch of Southeast’s Garfield Elementary, one of about 30 principals who left recent student-recruitment training sessions with plans to knock on hundreds of doors. Educators have found themselves assembling teams of volunteer door-knockers and tinkering with fliers meant to encourage parents to consider their schools. The days when public schools could sit back and wait for students to show up on the first day of class is over. Families have become consumers, and educators have become marketers. Nowhere is that shift more apparent than in D.C., home to one of the most crowded and competitive school marketplaces in the nation, where a school’s budget — and continued existence — depends on the number of students it enrolls.

MARVIN JOSEPH (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Traditional system aims to stem the flight to charters

Principal Andria Caruthers goes door to door to recruit students for enrollment.

Charter schools in D.C. now educate a higher percentage of local students than anywhere in the U.S. other than Detroit and New Orleans, where traditional schools have been replaced almost entirely by charters. Charter schools are known for marketing themselves aggressively. Advocates for school choice say they are forcing traditional school systems

to think of families as customers. Others say marketing efforts such as the District’s beg important questions about the unintended consequences of school choice, including whether the push to sell schools distracts from the goal of improving instruction. “At a time of very limited school resources, do we want our resources diverted to marketing?” said Kevin Welner, of the University of Colorado at Boulder. But many D.C. principals feel a responsibility to do whatever they can to boost enrollment. “I don’t think I allow myself to go down the road of ‘Is it a good use of my time?’ ” said Principal Andria Caruthers of Northwest’s West Education Campus. “I think it’s a reality of where we’re at in education right now.”

And on Tuesday evening in Montgomery County, Md., Deborah Reyes Casasola did about the last thing that anyone would consider dangerous: She tagged along with her parents to watch a soccer practice.

Leading the sessions was 270 Strategies, a firm known for combining data analytics and massive grassroots organizing to help elect and reelect Barack Obama. The firm is also analyzing five years of student data to create a model for identifying those most likely to leave. The school system is paying $30,000 for that work, and officials hope the model will be ready in time to help principals plan their recruitment efforts next spring. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

What investigators have established is that at some point, in a parking lot outside Eastern Middle School in Silver Spring, a 2008 Ford Escape jumped a curb, ran over a sign, hit a tree and struck Deborah and a woman who was not related to her.

Craig Stammen has been Mr. Versatility for the Nationals’ bullpen. No matter the inning or the length of his outing, the right-hander has been a reliable force in relief. In Tuesday night’s game against the Rockies, Stammen was called on to relieve Stephen Strasburg, pitching the last out of the eighth and the full ninth inning in a 7-1 win. Prior to Wednesday night’s series finale against Colorado, Stammen had surrendered only two runs in his past seven appearances. “I try to show up to the ballpark ready to play and ready to go,” Stammen said. “My biggest asset is being able to pitch every day and being multifaceted.” He’s come in during the sixth to pitch a couple of innings, and he’s been asked to be an eighthinning man on days Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen are unavailable. “It’s what keeps me on the team,” said Stammen, who entered Wednesday’s game with a 2.74 ERA and 35 strikeouts in 422 ⁄3 innings. On any given day, Stammen might log plenty of innings. Against

Nationals right-handed reliever Craig Stammen entered Wednesday’s game with a 2.74 ERA in 25 appearances this season.

Miami on April 9, he was called on to pitch the final out of the second inning and go through the fifth after a poor start from Jordan Zimmermann. Entering the game down 5-0, Stammen kept the Marlins’ bats at bay, which allowed Washington’s offense to rally to a 10-7 win. “He’s ready to pitch every day,” manager Matt Williams said. “He can step into those roles, he can step into the seventh-inning role and get you a double play. He can

no, in the midst of great seasons themselves, get most of the credit for setting up and closing tight games. Stammen’s job, meanwhile, has been less defined, but meaningful nonetheless. “He’s pitching in big situations, he’s coming in with the game on the line and runners on base,” Clippard said. “Every situation possible. There’s not too many guys in the league like him, and he’s very valuable for us.”

Tennis The silence at Centre Court made abundantly clear that Andy Murray’s time as Wimbledon champion was coming to a close. Out of sorts from the start of his quarterfinal against up-and-coming Grigor Dimitrov on Wednesday, Murray — who in 2013 ended Britain’s 77-year wait for one of its own to win the men’s title at the All England Club — sailed an awkward backhand slice long to fall behind

by a set and a break. When one last forehand fell short, the magical ride ended for Murray and his fans with a 6-1, 7-6 (4), 6-2 loss to the 11th-seeded Dimitrov, who became the first man from Bulgaria to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. Murray hadn’t lost a set in his first four matches, but made 37 unforced errors Wednesday, more than twice as many as Dimitrov. On Friday, Dimitrov takes on another past champ, top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who returned to

Good, Bad and Ugly of Gortat’s Deal The Wizards and Marcin Gortat agreed to a five-year contract worth $60 million Tuesday that will keep the 6-foot-11 center in Washington. Gortat is coming off one of the best seasons of his career, having helped lead the Wizards to the Eastern Conference semifinals. But is it wise to invest this much cash in the 30-year-old? JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)

The Good

The Bad

The Ugly

In his first season in Washington, Gortat meshed well with Nene and the Wizards’ promising young backcourt. The past four years, he’s averaged 12.4 points and 8.9 rebounds, and in 2013-14 he ranked 12th in the NBA with 37 double doubles. What would the Wizards have done if they didn’t re-sign “The Polish Hammer”? There aren’t many other options at center in free agency. The Wizards could have gone after former Georgetown big man Greg Monroe, who is younger (24) but at best only marginally more talented than Gortat. Sticking with the known quantity is the safe move.

The $12 million per year Gortat is getting doesn’t look so bad when you see that his salary next year is comparable to players like Andrea Bargnani, JaVale McGee and Nikola Pekovic. But he’s also making about the same as Serge Ibaka and Joakim Noah. It appears the going rate for any starting center — no matter how good — is around $12 million. But why overpay for Gortat because Minnesota overpaid to keep Pekovic? Gortat had a few memorable playoff games against the Pacers (31 points and 16 rebounds in Game 5), but let’s not forget he had six points combined in Games 3 and 4 and lost fourthquarter minutes to Drew Gooden.

The value of Gortat’s contract isn’t as daunting as its length. In five years, Gortat will be 35. The only two power forwards or centers older than 33 to average double digits in points last season were Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan. And sorry Wizards fans, but Gortat is not Dirk Nowitzki or Tim Duncan. Washington’s big man has played only seven seasons in the league and appears to take good care of his body, but it’s probably safe to say he’s not going to be playing up to his $12 million-per-year contract in the last two or three years of this deal — which will hurt the Wizards’ ability in the future to add and resign players.

Be a Paleyontologist

‘Good Shepherd Gate’

WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL, 3101 WISCONSIN AVE. NW | Look for: Matching window grates

high above the gate. Paley says: “There are layers of symbolism in the gate, taken from the 23rd Psalm. The ‘Good Shepherd’ obviously being Christ, and the gate being a metaphor for going through Christ. There is a shepherd’s crook and plants which are symbols of regeneration.” On exhibit: A metal model and drawings of the gate.

Discover the works of metalsmith Albert Paley at the Corcoran, and throughout D.C. For nearly 50 years, Rochester, N.Y.-based metalsmith Albert Paley has been making iron ripple like water and drape like cloth, and he’s put these sinuous shapes to work in jewelry, furniture and towering sculptures. “American Metal,” a retrospective of his career, is the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s second-to-last show before George Washington University and the National Gallery of Art take over. See 75 of his works, including drawings and models of his large-scale pieces, while you can — or go on this scavenger hunt to find the many Paley pieces that enliven D.C.

‘Epoch’ 701 NINTH ST. NW | Look for:

Verses by D.C.’s poet laureate, Dolores Kendrick, stamped into the skin of the sculpture. Paley says: “She actually came up to Rochester to visit our studio and wrote the poem about that experience.” On exhibit: A metal model and a drawing of the sculpture.

2

‘The Beckoning’ NATIONAL HARBOR | Look

for: The American spirit, which is what National Harbor developers asked Paley to capture through this sculpture. Paley says: “It’s an optimistic piece, with vibrant colors extending into the sky.” On exhibit: Several models of the sculpture.

CORCORAN, 500 17TH ST. NW | Look for: Subtle

CLYDE’S OF TYSONS CORNER, 8332 LEESBURG PIKE, VIENNA | Look

for: The bronze push plates on the revolving doors. They are so snazzy, the Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired one for its design collection. Paley says: “I get a call from [Clyde’s cofounder] Stuart Davidson, and he says, ‘You the guy who does metalwork? I’m developing a hamburger joint in Washington. I’d like you to do something for me.’ I said, ‘I don’t know if I want to do something for a hamburger joint,’ and he says, ‘Well, it’s kind of a high-end hamburger joint.’”

Menorahs

WASHINGTON HEBREW CONGREGATION, 3935 MACOMB ST. NW | Look for:

Matching flower urns and sanctuary lights. Paley says: “The congregation is quite large, so they wanted something that had a big presence. So we did two menorahs, and they are about six feet high.”

Interior sculpture THE WILLARD BUILDING, 1455 PENNSYLVANIA AVE. NW |

Look for: Door handles at the entrance that echo the circular forms in the sculpture. Paley says: “It’s in the main elevator area, so for people waiting there it becomes a public area rather than just a dead-end canyon.”

Tree grates and benches

PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE NW BETWEEN THE U.S. CAPITOL AND THE TREASURY BUILDING | Look

for: The few remaining benches and dozen or so remaining grates. Almost all of the 800 tree-grates and 30 benches Paley made in 1981 have since been removed due to tree growth or to make way for antiterrorism measures. Paley says: “The tree-grates have concentric rings that you can break away as the tree grows.”

Gotta Get Out Of This Place

Test your internal GPS at the Building Museum’s maze “It’s not that we didn’t love mini-golf, but it was like, ‘enough already,’ ” says Cathy Frankel, vice president for exhibitions and collections at the National Building Museum. “It was enormously popular, but it was time to do something different.” So the museum put away the putters and won’t be setting up a temporary mini-golf course as it did the past two summers. For the “something different,” the museum teamed up with international architecture firm BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group to construct a maze right in the Great Hall. The BIG Maze opens Friday, so here’s a chance to get in a little practice. Take out your pen — and look out for dead ends. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

START

HIGH THERE The wooden walls of the maze start at 18 feet high on the perimeter and get progressively shorter, making it easier as you progress (and making it easy to get out). But you’ve hit a dead end here.

LOOK UP The museum’s “ubergoal is that people walk out of here looking at their built world differently,” Frankel says. “We think this is sort of on the microlevel of that — forcing people to look up [as they navigate the maze] will make them look at our building differently.”

TIME OUT Frankel estimates the average person can complete the maze in about 40 minutes. It took one Express staffer 10 minutes — to make her way back to the entrance. Whoops.

FEAR NOT The museum takes pride in using quirky elements to get people in the door. “People are scared of museums sometimes, and this is a way to bring something familiar in a friendly way, and start getting at what we’re doing little by little,” Frankel says. “People aren’t going to walk out [of the maze] understanding architecture or engineering, but at least they’ll be thinking about it in new way.”

WATCH YOUR FEET The maze is 3,600 square feet. There’s nothing else to read here; go back.

COME BACK The maze is a precursor to amBIGuity, an exhibit the museum has planned for January on the work of the BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. Frankel says she hopes the maze stirs up interest so that the exhibit draws more than just architecture students: “It’s a nice way to introduce [the firm’s] work so people want to come back and see the actual buildings in January.”

OPEN WIDE Its location in the great hall may make the maze tougher. “Our building is pretty symmetrical,” Frankel says, and the hall’s walls are similar looking, so it’ll be tough to find distinguishing features. “For those people who have a really keen eye, they could know whether they’re facing north or south and could figure it out from there.” Staff members will be on hand to rescue the lost, and people on the second or third floors overlooking the maze are allowed to shout instructions.

LAST HOPE Don’t worry if you get totally lost. “We will sweep it at the end of the day,” Frankel says. That’s not the case here.

CHEW WISELY On certain evenings, the maze will be open from 4 to 9 p.m., and Hill Country’s Backyard Barbecue will be on the museum’s west lawn so you can get a snack. Too bad we don’t have one for you at this dead end.

The Wydown Coffee Bar contains many handmade touches There’s something rewarding about drinking direct-trade coffee beans that have been meticulously curated. And there’s something altogether charming when you’re doing it at the Wydown Coffee Bar, D.C.’s new java shop with a DIY spirit. Designed with the help of Edit Lab at Streetsense, the little-coffeeshop-that-could opened its first brick-and-mortar location midJune after two successful pop-ups along U Street. At the new locale,

brothers and owners Chad and Alex McCracken display art they made by splattering coffee on thick watercolor paper. And they MacGyver-ed the pour-over stand using steel rods and address numbers purchased from a hardware store. “I’m sure the person at checkout thought our home address was 8888,” Alex says. The McCrackens’ coffee offerings are just as tailored. The Wydown serves blends from three roasters: Kaldi’s Coffee of St. Louis, PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. out of Kansas and Chicago’s Intelligentsia Coffee, all companies the McCrackens consider leaders in the coffee

roasting industry. To optimize their customers’ experience, the brew brothers opted for equipment that was efficient yet didn’t compromise quality. “We want it to be as fast as possible, because we’re doing everything manually,” Alex said. “I’ll show you what’s under this table. It’s very DIY.” Sitting below the counter is a boiler from a 1970s Faema espresso machine that looks more steampunk than streamlined. The McCrackens tapped Bruce White of Perfect Brew Services in Baltimore (“He’s a coffee mad scientist,” Alex says) to outfit the tank

with modern electronics and Teflon tubing that can handle unlimited hot water, thus eliminating the need for a bulky hot water tower. With the exception of the French pastries (the dough comes from Patisserie Poupon in Georgetown), all of the food is homespun.

It’s a Jungle In Here Tenants with unusual pets find it’s a different world when it comes to renting

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

Challenges

Finding a place to rent is never an easy task for Ethan Hutton, 33, who has a dog, a cat, two birds and two geckos. He lives in an apartment in Hyattsville, Md.

Think it’s hard finding an apartment when you have a dog or cat? Imagine if Fluffy had scales — or feathers. “It just limits probably 80 percent of the housing possibilities,” says Ethan Hutton, 33. “You just can’t live there.” He lives in a two-bedroom basement apartment in Hyattsville, Md., with a dog, Lady; a cat, Delilah; a parrot, Sky; a parakeet, Skeeter; and two geckos, Witch and Wizard Lizard. (He’s also fostering a parakeet.) A serious animal lover who used to work at the National Zoo, Hutton says he knows six pets — all rescues — is a lot, but it’s still tough for him not to bring home more rescues. “I wanted to save them all, and knew I couldn’t,” he says. Among other reasons, it’s already a stretch finding a landlord willing to take on his crew. The hurdles to rentership can be many, even for those who share their space with just a goldfish. But Washingtonians who own exotic fauna — reptiles, birds, rodents — can struggle to find a place at all. Not all apartment buildings accept pets, and fewer still allow unusual ones. Asked if he’s ever thought about reducing his menagerie to make it easier to find a rental, Hutton bristles. CONTINUED ON R3

Exotic Pets Continued from page R1

“It just never was an option,” he says. “You wouldn’t tell a family that had three kids, ‘Hey, why don’t you just get rid of your kids?’” Some exotic-pet owners don’t feel quite as strongly — or they simply are left without a choice. Of the past 70-odd exotic pets surrendered to her organization, about a dozen were given up because of landlord issues, says Marika Bell of the Washington Humane Society (washhumane.org).

The Legal Side

Ethan Hutton calls the animals he’s rescued (including parakeet Skeeter and gecko Wizard the Lizard, shown) his “kids” and says he would never get rid of them to make finding a rental in the D.C. area easier.

The laws for tenants with exotic pets are pretty straightforward: It’s all about the lease. “When you sign the lease, you’re agreeing to those terms,” says Joel Cohn, legislative director of D.C.’s Office of the Tenant Advocate. In other words, don’t bring home a snake when you’ve signed a lease saying only cats and dogs are allowed. But what if the lease says nothing about animals? Cohn says you might win a legal case in that situation, but why take the risk? “It’s always a good idea to check with the landlord” first, he says. Cohn also notes that there are plenty of animals that D.C. residents are allowed to keep as pets: domestic dogs, cats, rodents and rabbits, “captivebred species of common cage birds,” nonpoisonous snakes, fish, turtles and even racing pigeons. B.C.

nextweek

“We do get exotics in on a fairly regular basis,” she says, noting that snakes are probably the most common. The group either puts those animals up for adoption or asks a local rescue group that focuses on that breed to take them in. One option for renters whose landlords don’t like their pets is to seek a foster home for the pets while they look for a new place, Bell says. The Humane Society has set up a website (fosteradcpet.com) to help facilitate those exchanges. Finding a landlord that accepts exotic pets can be difficult. Private homeowners tend to be more flexible on pets than corporate management companies, Bell says. “If you go with a big company, it’s almost impossible to get them to change their minds,” she says. That’s due in large part to com-

Answers to common renter questions from the D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate

Temperatures have soared into the 80s and 90s, yet it seems the landlord hasn’t turned on the central airconditioning system in my building. My thermostat says it’s 75 degrees in my apartment, but I don’t believe that. Does D.C. law require my landlord to activate A/C by a certain date, or when the temperature reaches a certain point? And how can I tell if my air conditioning is working? Under D.C. law, the landlord is not required to provide tenants with air-conditioning service (unlike heat). However, if air conditioning is a provided service, then District regulations do apply. The landlord must maintain the system in good and

safe working order. The system must be inspected by a qualified person each year. And it must be capable of providing an inside temperature of either 78 degrees, or at least 15 degrees less than the outside temperature, whichever is greater.

pany-wide policies. Take Avalon Bay, for example, which runs nearly a dozen properties in the region. Company policy allows dogs, cats and birds, but not snakes or lizards, spokesman Richard Wolff says. There are restrictions on some dog breeds and no resident may have more than two pets, he says. Even if a pet isn’t expressly forbidden by a pet policy, you have to

As of this year, new regulations require the landlord to provide air conditioning for a specific timeframe — between May 15 and Sept. 15. There is an exception if the building has a twopipe system, meaning that the same equipment is used to provide heat and air conditioning. In that case, the landlord is given until June 1 to transition to air conditioning. It may be easy to tell whether your building has a two-pipe system. Generally, only larger buildings — 10 units at a bare minimum — have two-pipe systems. If your unit has a radiator for heat and an air duct for air conditioning, then it likely is not a two-pipe system. If there is a single “box” with a fan inside for both heat and air con-

be careful, as ChristieLyn Diller, 32, of the Washington Humane Society, learned. She was living in a company-managed building in New York when she adopted a rat. “They’re not the kind of pets where you pay the pet fee,” so she didn’t notify the building, she says. Someone, well, ratted her out after entering her unit to make repairs. “It was sort of an immediate, ‘[It needs] to go or you need to go,’ ” she says. She gave up that rat, but got two more when she moved to the D.C. area. (She now owns a home in Baltimore.) Be proactive about being a good neighbor, too, to avoid ruffling your

ditioning, then it likely is a two-pipe system. If in doubt, ask your landlord. To determine whether the thermostat is accurate, place a thermometer close to the thermostat. Use an outdoor rather than a medical thermometer. Be aware that the location of the thermostat can cause the problem.

neighbor’s feathers. Keeping noise under control is a primary concern for Arialle Hence, 26, who lives in a town house in Crawford, Md., and owns a parrot, Chloe. “As long as I don’t get a noise complaint and she stays in her cage when she’s not being monitored, I don’t have a problem,” she says of her white-capped pionus. Choosing the right type of home can make it easier for renters with exotic pets. Hutton says his parrots can be noisy, so he always looks for a basement or freestanding house. But even that solution isn’t always perfect: Once, when he landed a house in Mount Rainier, Md., that was ideal for his animals, he struggled to find roommates who would both accept his pets and reliably pay their bills. “I was really worried about leaving that house, because I knew it would be difficult to find another place,” he says. Hutton says landlords are often uncertain about the six animals he calls his “kids” — and not just the exotics. “A lot of people just say, ‘No pets.’ And it’s not even a debate.” Diller says she thinks the challenges she faced as a renter with rats were often about ignorance. “I have run into trouble with landlords primarily because they just don’t like them or they don’t understand them,” she says of her rats, Mabel and Rosie, which she describes as fantastic pets: intelligent, social and cuddly. Owners and managers might fear a mess or noise, she says, but “any responsible pet owner works to make sure that’s not the issue.” BETH COPE (FOR E XPRES S)

For example, if the fan blows cool air directly onto the thermostat, the system may shut down before the rest of the room cools sufficiently. Take temperature readings in other parts of your unit, but also be aware that minor fluctuations are to be expected. If you are having problems with your air-conditioning service, contact your landlord or management office first. If they are unresponsive, then request a housing code inspection by the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. DCRA can be reached at 202-442-9557 or 311. Have a question for the advocate?

Crane & Turtle’s dining room is snug at 25 seats with nautical influences and clean, minimal lines inspired by Japan.

A Fable for Two Once upon a time there was a young boy named Makoto who lived in the Japanese countryside. Makoto’s father was a sailor, and when he would return from salty adventures he’d often come bearing souvenirs. It was then that Makoto first became curious about the great big world going on around him, a world he dreamed of one day traveling himself. That boy grew up to be chef Makoto Hamamura. At the age of 19, Hamamura moved to the United States for a kitchen position at a now-defunct Japanese restaurant in Georgetown, and then spent seven years at CityZen working under Eric Ziebold. “I started really low, and after seven years I was sous chef,” Hamamura says. Today he’s the executive chef at Petworth Citizen and, since its opening June 24, Crane & Turtle. The restaurants are owned by the

same management team and sit across the street from each other, though owner Paul Rupert is quick to point out the difference: “The distinguishing factor between the two is that Crane & Turtle is more chefdriven. This is Makoto’s restaurant.” Food at Crane & Turtle is heavily influenced by Hamamura’s Asian background, with an emphasis on seafood prepared using French techniques. (Hamamura had a brief stint cooking in France.) For

example, sauteed Maine scallops are served with chorizo dumplings and coconut foam ($25) and the pan-roasted striped bass comes with a bean puree and shiitake mushrooms with squid ink ($23). But Hamamura’s eyes light up when he talks about his pork “ramen” dish, made with pork cheek, poached oyster and thinly sliced crackling pork skins instead of noodles ($12). “I saw pork skin served like this at a taqueria, and figured out a way to make it more Asian,” Hamamura says. As for the restaurant’s name: It’s based off of a Japanese fable about a crane that was stranded at sea until a turtle helped him to shore. They meet again when the crane finds the turtle land-locked and returns the favor by carrying him to sea. “I like the way they helped each other,” Hamamura says. We like the way all signs point to a happy ending. HOLLEY SIMMONS

Weekend Pass

Freedom To Choose Take our quiz and find out which local Independence Day event is right for you Every year, tourists descend on the National Mall for the annual Independence Day fireworks show above the monuments and the Capitol. If you’re a local, you probably know better than to brave the crowds on the Mall. Or you’re one of the nearly 1 million D.C.area residents planning to get out of town for the long weekend. If you’re sticking around, though, the best place to catch fireworks is from one of the District’s everincreasing rooftop decks (particularly if it’s your own — most ticketed roof parties have sold out). Of course, there are plenty of ways to celebrate on Friday. We’ve devised a quiz to help you figure out which Fourth of July event is right for you. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS) How much do you like fireworks? A. I want to be one with the fireworks. I will dance with the flames. B. Once a year, they are pretty awesome. C. Fireworks are fine, but they’d be better in my belly. D. I like watching fireworks, but I shouldn’t play with fireworks. E. If I never saw another fireworks show again, I would die happy. Is barbecue an essential ingredient to Fourth of July fun? A. Only if there are fireworks involved. B. No, but it’s a nice option. C. Essential? It’s the ONLY reason I can stand Independence Day. D. Only if it’s a Beer-BQ. E. I’ll eat when I’m hungry. The how, what, where, why and when don’t concern you.

How much are you willing to spend? A. Is “free” an option? B. I’m flexible. C. I’ll pay for food and booze. D. I’ll pay for booze and food. E. Money? Who do you think I am? How much do you like other people? A. I love people! Especially loud kids! B. I don’t mind a crowd. C. I like some people. D. People are better when I’ve been drinking. E. Stay away from me, people.

It’s Still Worth Watching Sure, you may be a bit heartbroken after Team USA’s 2-1 loss in extra time to Belgium on Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on the rest of the World Cup. There’s still plenty of amazing soccer to see, with the tournament’s best games ahead. With only eight teams still alive, here’s a primer to get you ready to tune in to the quarterfinal matches this holiday weekend. MICHAEL CUNNIFF (E XPRESS)

Tim Howard had a World Cup record 16 saves in the U.S. loss to Belgium.

Yes, this is your chance to get in all your World War II jokes. Done? Good. This battle between traditional European powers could be one to remember. France is firing on all cylinders, but it hasn’t faced a team nearly as good as Germany yet in this tournament.

Colombia has probably been the most dominant team at the World Cup thus far, which could be troublesome for the host nation. Also against Brazil: Nine of the last 10 teams to win in extra time lost their next game (Brazil beat Chile on penalty kicks in the Round of 16).

The stories of these two teams in the World Cup are remarkably similar. They both came in with high expectations, won their group games unconvincingly and were taken to extra time in the Round of 16. Can either of them finally get out of third gear?

Now that the U.S. is gone, Los Ticos are the last CONCACAF nation standing. They face a Dutch side that many think shouldn’t be here after Arjen Robben earned a controversial penalty in stoppage time to beat Mexico, another CONCACAF side.

Key matchup: France’s Mathieu Valbuena vs. Germany’s Benedikt Howedes. France’s diminutive right winger constantly drifted inside to escape Nigerian defenders, but don’t be surprised to see him stay wide in this match to isolate one-on-one against Howedes, arguably Germany’s weak link.

Key matchup: Colombia’s James Rodriguez vs. Brazil’s Luiz Gustavo. Rodriguez has made himself a household name with five goals in his first four games in the World Cup. Gustavo, on the other hand, is Kyle Beckerman minus the hair in Brazil’s midfield — he does the dirty work and lets Neymar do his thing.

Key matchup: Belgium’s Eden Hazard vs. Argentina’s Pablo Zabaleta. Belgium’s talented left winger is a wizard with a ball at his feet, but he doesn’t like to track back defensively. Will Zabaleta stay home at right back to keep an eye on Hazard, or will he try to capitalize on Hazard’s lack of defensive diligence and bomb forward?

Key matchup: Robben vs. the refs. Mexico’s Rafa Marquez should have known better when he stuck a foot out in Robben’s general vicinity, but the notorious flopper even outdid himself when he fell over like he’d been shot. Don’t be surprised if the referee is slower to give him the benefit of the doubt Saturday.

Goals by substitutes in Brazil, already a World Cup record with eight matches left to play. FIFA’s coaching advisers want to let teams use a fourth substitute in extra time at the next World Cup. Gerard Houllier, member of FIFA’s technical study group, says “that’s an idea that we will put” to football’s rules-making panel, which has previously rejected it. Houllier, a former France coach, says: “It’s a good idea. Only in extra time. Maybe if someone is injured, why not?” The former France coach says changing the rules could see fewer players struggle with muscle cramps in high-intensity matches. Up to three replacements are allowed, even when knockout matches go to 30 extra minutes after scores are level in regulation time. (AP)

Tim Howard hasn’t decided whether he will stick around for another World Cup cycle or retire from the U.S. national team. The 35-year-old goalkeeper says he will talk it over with those close to him before determining whether he wants to play in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Howard left a lasting impression on Americans — and fans around the world — for his amazing, improbable saves in the 2-1 loss in extra time to Belgium that sends the U.S. home from the World Cup to a captivated country. Howard is a big reason for the interest. He has become a Twitter sensation in less than a day, while raising one important question before he leaves Brazil: Will he be back? Howard’s 16 saves in defeat were the most in a World Cup game since FIFA started tracking the statistic in 2002. JANIE McCAULEY (AP)

Meanwhile … More than 7,000 Americans — as of late Wednesday afternoon — signed a petition for the airport located just outside the nation’s capital and named for President Ronald Reagan to be rededicated as “Tim Howard National Airport.” To get a response from the White House, the petition must reach 100,000 signatures by July 31.

Through Ebert’s Eyes

Sloshstory Lesson Does “Drunk History” (10 p.m. Tuesdays, Comedy Central) trivialize history? Or is it the MOST UNEXPECTEDLY EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM ON TV? Series creator Derek Waters aims to tell stories that make viewers go, “Why didn’t we learn this in school?” Yeah, why didn’t I learn about Claudette Colvin, the 15-year-old AfricanAmerican arrested in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955 for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white lady? Some civil rights leaders thought the teen, who By Marc got pregnant after the Silver incident, wasn’t a good role model. Rosa Parks (played by Lisa Bonet, above) made a better icon. The show’s alcohol-fueled narrators are largely accurate but hey, they are drunk. Writer Amber Ruffin got too tipsy to pronounce “Birmingham” and said Colvin moved to “Burning Man.” Says Waters, “If we didn’t have moments like that, we would just be on the History Channel.” Do educators mind? Waters’ high school history teacher told him, “You’re making it fun.” P.S. The show’s godfather is Derek’s pal Jake “New Girl” Johnson, who once drunkenly spun a rambling story about Otis Redding. Derek thought: Let’s try this with Alexander Hamilton. The rest is (drunken) history. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse

Steve James let the critic guide him for his intimate, unvarnished new doc ‘Life Itself’ Film A nurse has placed a tube into the trachea of the most famous film critic in the world and is using it to suck out the saliva and mucus that, due to cancer-related surgery, he can no longer cough out or swallow. A machine whirs and slurps as the movie scene continues, and continues, and continues. It’s one of the pivotal scenes in “Life Itself,” the new documentary based on Roger Ebert’s 2011 memoir of the same name, and it almost didn’t make it in. “Before we even started filming, we were meeting with Roger and [his wife] Chaz,” says Steve James, the film’s director. “And she said, ‘You guys need to step out of the room for a little while and then you can come back.’ She explained that he has to have his windpipe suctioned. She said [to Roger], ‘I know you don’t care, but I do. I just don’t want them to see.’ But the way their apartment was set up I could see it happening, and I said to my colleagues, ‘We need to film this; this is a regular part of his life.’ ” On the first day of filming, a week later, Chaz was out of the room, so James let the camera roll. “Once I filmed it I totally understood why she felt that way,” he says. It’s an intrusive, ugly, visceral scene that would have ended up on the cutting room floor if not for an email Ebert sent that night congratulating James on “getting great stuff today.” “It was like him saying to me, ‘Whatever you’re feeling about that [scene], it’s good you did what you

Roger Ebert, right, seen here with partner-in-criticism Gene Siskel, opened up his life to documentarian Steve James, below.

“During editing, I literally thought about [Ebert] perching on my shoulder.” did because this is the kind of film we’re going to make,’ ” James says. Ebert — who singled out James’ 1994 doc “Hoop Dreams” as the best film of the 1990s — knew how “Life Itself” would end up. “He said, ‘This is what I prize in documentaries I watch: I want the whole story,’ ” James says. “ ‘I want the excess, I want the candor. If I want that in some other movie, then I should want that for myself.’ ” That doesn’t mean Ebert had

control over the film, and he understood that, James says. “I said, ‘I welcome your feedback, I welcome your thoughts anytime you want to share them,’ ” James says. “ ‘As long as you understand I don’t have to take them.’ ” More than a decade after he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, Ebert died on April 4, 2013, during the filming of “Life Itself.” (One of his last emails to James, seen onscreen, reads simply, “I’m fading.”) But he remained a strong presence for James. “Especially during editing, I literally thought about him perching on my shoulder, watching the film through his critic’s eyes — not his personal eyes,” James says. That’s why James included the suction footage, and other scenes that show Ebert was no saintly invalid;

he still had his furious temper and strong stubborn streak. “I thought about him a lot in terms of making sure the film didn’t turn into hagiography,” James says. “I would have felt really bad if people’s reaction to the movie was, ‘Oh, it’s a tribute film to Roger Ebert. It’s good, but it’s a tribute film.’ I would have felt like I had failed.” By including everything that Ebert faced at the end of his life — all the crap, big and small, that serious illness brings — James shows us all the angles of a man we all felt we knew. Just like Ebert wanted. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS) Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW; opens Fri., $11.50; 202783-9494, landmarktheatres.com.

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY

The life and death of Roger Ebert are chronicled in “Life Itself.”

My dad was not a “newspaperman,” which is how Roger Ebert often referred to himself. (Dad said “printheads” had bad hair. I don’t think that’s why Dad spent most of his career in television journalism, but I’m willing to bet it was a factor. He did take really good care of his hair.) Which is why it was so strange for me to watch “Life Itself,” a new documentary about Ebert’s life and death, and see Dad everywhere. They didn’t really look alike, but they were certainly cut from the same cloth. They were both big guys,

extraordinary storytellers, funny, popular, frighteningly demanding and devastatingly smart. So in nearly every moment of “Life Itself,” I was experiencing two losses all over again. Both men had a profound effect on my life and I miss them — Dad more, of course, but it took nearly a year after Ebert’s death for me to stop checking his website to compare my views about a movie with his, just like it took me about a year to change the contact in my phone to just “Mom.” The question becomes, then, whether I can assess “Life Itself”

KEVIN HORAN

Roger & Dad & Me

objectively. Do I think the movie is successful because it works in terms of structure and storytelling, or do I think it’s successful because it illuminates some feelings that are unique to me? And the only thing I can say is … yes. It is utter nonsense to believe that anyone — critics or audiences — can view a film through crystal-

clear magical glasses of objectivity. And no one should have to — a viewer’s emotional connection with a film only heightens the experience. Can it blind you? Sure, and it’s important to recognize that. I don’t write about slasher films because they make me so physically uncomfortable there’s no way I could even give them a fair shot.

I believe “Life Itself” is a very special, tremendously moving film, but I also need to acknowledge that I brought a nice set of personal baggage to the screening. That doesn’t make my assessment weaker. It makes it mine. Those of us who cover film aren’t scientists; we don’t have proof that a film is good or bad. We do have opinions, and those are colored by our experiences and our emotions. Impartiality is good — I’m not going to slam some film because the director was mean to me once — but objectivity doesn’t work when it comes to criticism. At least I don’t think so. I don’t know. I do wish I could talk about it with Dad. Read Kristen Page-Kirby’s previous columns at: washingtonpost.com/thereelist

While the session was supposed to support Thicke’s latest album, “Paula,” the hashtag was quickly hijacked by users who view the pop singer’s music as misogynistic (think “Blurred Lines”), his pining for estranged wife Paula Patton stalkery (he named his album after her) and his VMA performance with Miley Cyrus as creepy.

No details have been revealed about the new episodes, though the network promises “the most shocking and surprising series yet.” Up until the announcement, it was unclear if the beloved series, which updates Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective character for 21st-century London, would be renewed.
