Obama’s Message Takes Aim at Cynics President fights lack of confidence public has in government Washington To hear President Barack Obama describe it, there’s a creeping case of cynicism setting in across the country, leading Americans to suspect that not only is Washington broken, it’s beyond fixing. If that line of thinking continues, it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy with dire long-term ramifications, Obama says. If compromise-minded Americans get so frustrated they just tune out, law-

makers will feel even less pressure to work together. With a mix of alarm and dismay, Obama has started musing about the dangers of cynicism in nearly every major public appearance. It’s a sharp change in tone from the days when then-candidate Obama rallied millions to his side with ambitious aspirations about hope and change. “It’s easy to be cynical. In fact, these days it’s kind of trendy,” Obama told a crowd of thousands recently in Minneapolis. Cynicism may masquerade as wisdom, he said, but it can’t liberate a continent, invent the Internet or send a man to the moon. “Cynicism is a

Germany Kicks Out U.S. Spy After New Charges Germany on Thursday demanded Washington’s top spy in Berlin leave the country as a new round of allegations of U.S. espionage worsened the friction between the two allies.

What happens before the Israeli military bombs your house? For many Gaza Strip residents, it’s a phone call. Sawsan Kawarea, a resident of Khan Younis, said she was in the house Tuesday when the phone rang. She answered, and on the other side was “David,” who claimed he was with the Israeli military. “He asked for me by name. He said: ‘You have women and children in the house. Get out. You have five minutes before the rockets come,’ ” Kawarea said. She took her children and ran outside. A small rocket hit the house soon after, Kawarea said. It was apparently the final warning. Five minutes later, a larger missile hit, and the house was destroyed. According to Hamas, seven people, including three minors, were killed in the Israeli airstrike. The man the Israelis were aiming for was

What’s Going on in Indonesia? MARKUS SCHREIBER (AP)

A day after Indonesia’s presidential elections failed to produce a clear winner, both candidates continue to claim victory, leading Jakarta’s police chief to announce a crackdown on anyone celebrating prematurely. Here’s a look at what’s going on after the “quick count.” (AP)

TECHNOLOGY

Divine Robot A Torah-writing robot was developed by the German artists’ group robotlab and was presented for the first time Thursday at Berlin’s Jewish Museum. While it takes the machine about three months to complete the 260-foot-long scroll, a rabbi or a sofer — a Jewish scribe — needs nearly a year. (AP)

Wait, what’s a quick count?

So why didn’t it work this time?

Why are the quick counts so different?

What’s going to happen next?

Researchers tally votes at a random sample of polling stations, allowing them to make a reliable projection of the national vote. Civil society organizations have used the method to accurately forecast election results in scores of countries. Proponents say making this data available reduces the risk of fraud. Quick counts have accurately forecast the results of elections in Indonesia since 2009.

At least 12 organizations, among them research groups and media organizations, carried out their own quick counts. Of those, eight show Jakarta Gov. Joko “Jokowi” Widodo with a lead of between 4 percent and 5 percent. The rest project a victory for former army general Prabowo Subianto by between 1 percent and 4 percent.

Most of those projecting a Widodo victory have been carried out by independent organizations with a long track record of running quick counts and other opinion surveys, and have predicted the results of earlier elections, making them far more credible. Two of those projecting a Subianto win have been carried out by television stations openly supporting his bid.

All eyes are on the Election Commission of Indonesia, which is counting the votes and says it will announce them by July 22. If Widodo wins, as is considered highly likely given the quick count data, then Subianto could challenge the vote in the Constitutional Court if he can find evidence of fraud or other irregularities. If judges agree to hear the case, they must rule before Aug. 24.

apparently not among those killed. The phone call warning is part of a broader strategy. For years, the Israeli military has been using cellphone calls and small “warning rockets” — usually sent from drones — to tell people which buildings it is targeting and give them time to get out. It’s a time-tested strategy for the Israeli military, and it even has a name: “roof knocking.” Some critics say the tactic amounts to psychological warfare. There are reports of “warnings” that are given but no bombing following. There are also instances in which a bombing is not preceded by a warning. Human rights groups have argued that targeting the homes of militia members violates international humanitarian law, whether warnings are made or not. Either way, the warnings are not always heeded. According to Kawarea, after the “warning rocket” hit her house, a group of young men ran inside. It was unclear whether they thought their presence would stop the bombing or whether they wanted to be martyrs. ADAM TAYLOR (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Leesburg, Va. Dallas Northington spent nearly eight years working for Target in loss prevention. In a recent, typical episode at the Leesburg, Va., Target store in May, an alleged shoplifter was captured twice on video, and Northington responded as he always did: He called the Leesburg police, made a report and provided them the video of the two incidents. But the suspect was a Fairfax County sheriff’s deputy, Northington soon learned. And within days, two things happened: The deputy

Northington said Target officials told him that he had violated procedure by not filling out the proper paperwork before contacting the police, though his office had operated the same way for years. He said he was also told he was insubordinate for not seeking approval before calling police, though he said the standard practice was for Northington to act as needed. Then another thing didn’t happen: The deputy was not charged with any crimes, though Northington said he provided the suspect’s name and two color videos of him

Police End Plan To Re-Create Sexted Image Manassas City, Va. Manassas City, Va., police said Thursday they would not serve a search warrant seeking to take photos of a 17-year-old boy charged with “sexting” an explicit video to his 15-year-old girlfriend. The teen is facing felony counts of manufacturing and distributing child pornography. As the case was headed to trial last week, Manassas City police and Prince William County prosecutors said in juvenile court that they had obtained a warrant to photograph the teen’s erect genitalia, in order to compare with the video he allegedly sent in January, according to the teen’s lawyers. On Thursday, Prince William authorities decided to drop that plan. Lt. Brian Larkin of the Manassas City police said the police planned to allow the search warrant, obtained last week, to expire. He would not say why the decision had been made to abandon the warrant. TOM JACKMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Buzz at the Bus Stop While waiting at the Franconia-Springfield Metro last week, Jason Yaskoir, 43, spotted some unwelcome company: wasps. There were dozens of them headed toward a nest inside Bus Bay H. (Or as I’m now going to call it, “Bus Bay AHHHHHHHHH!!!”) “If it were just me, with my pro-insect bias, I would consider watching the wasps to be my entertainment while waiting for the bus,” offered Schultz, who noted that they make their own paper from wood scrapings. But, Schultz admitted, when wasps feel threatened, they sting. And if their target happens to be allergic to wasp venom, “the person could go into anaphylactic shock.” So as much as he likes to preserve wasp habitats, Schultz

BEN CLAASSEN III

The discovery explained why his roommate had been stung in the same location a few days earlier. So Yaskoir took to Twitter — as @JFoodgeek — to post photos, and asked Metro to do something about it. So how should Metro handle a situation like this? According to Ted R. Schultz, a research entomologist at the National Museum of Natural History, the best course of action might be to do nothing. Over email, he identified these particular creatures as paper wasps, which generally aren’t much of a nuisance. And besides, he added, they’re so interesting.

1921 8th St NW Washington DC 20001

acknowledged that even he’d probably “take the nest down.” (Translation: kill the wasps.) A nd that’s what happened. On Wednesday — about a week after Yaskoir first noticed the wasps — the nest was removed. Spokesman Dan Stessel advises riders that there’s no reason to be alarmed: Wasp nests don’t pop up in bus shelters often. (And if riders want a speedier response to such problems, they should tell a station manager or use wmata.com/contactus, instead of relying on tweets.) But Schultz, who seemed determined to give me the heebie-jeebies, pointed out that wasps prefer to build nests under overhangs and in other places sheltered from the rain. “Like bus stops, apparently,” he added. Maybe the best way to get around this summer is by fleeing in terror. It’s certainly cheaper than Metro.

Fielding

Injuries have limited the Nationals’ power, with Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman missing extended periods of time. Entering Thursday’s game, the sluggers had combined for just four home runs this season. The Nationals rank 20th in batting average (.246) and 17th in runs scored (367). However, Washington has posted five or more runs in 13 games since June 1, indicating the bats have picked up after a slow start. Prior to Thursday, Ian Desmond’s 16 home runs led the team, with Anthony Rendon in second with 13. Grade: C+

The Nationals began the season sluggish defensively, but 2013 Gold Glove finalist Denard Span and Co. have since rebounded and are now statistically in the middle of the pack. In its first 89 games, Washington committed 54 errors, which was the 14th fewest in the majors. That’s a significant improvement since late April, when the Nationals were leading the league in errors. Entering Thursday, Desmond led the Nationals in errors with 14, but the shortstop hadn’t committed one since May 26. Grade: B-

Nats Midseason Report Card Three games remain before the Nationals hit the All-Star break. As the first half of the season winds down, Washington is in a prime position to make a run at its second NL East title in three years. Here’s how the Nationals rate through the first 3½ months of the 2014 season. JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Bench

Coaching

The bench has held its own after being called upon due to an early rash of injuries. Jose Lobaton filled in at catcher admirably and has built a strong relationship with pitcher Gio Gonzalez. Utility man Scott Hairston has a .270 average in 37 at-bats. Though Danny Espinosa has struggled at the plate, he’s proved to be one of the better defensive second basemen in the NL. Utility player Kevin Frandsen has a .990 fielding percentage. Grade: B

There may be no better rotation than Washington’s this season, and it hasn’t been because of Stephen Strasburg (3.47 ERA) or Gonzalez (3.52). Doug Fister (2.90), Jordan Zimmermann (2.79) and Tanner Roark (3.12) have been exceptional through the first half, while Strasburg and Gonzalez have had their fair share of quality outings as well. Entering Thursday, the Nationals had the best team ERA (3.07) in the majors, having given up only 276 earned runs. Grade: A-

Has there been a better setup man and closer combo this season than the Nationals’ Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano? It’s tough to argue against them. Before Thursday, Soriano held a 1.00 ERA with 21 saves. Clippard, who started slow, has bounced back and now has a 1.85 ERA in 39 innings pitched. Drew Storen has a 1.24 ERA and Craig Stammen has been valuable with his ability to pitch in any spot. Grade: A

In his first season as an MLB manager, Matt Williams has adjusted on the fly to situations that could have allowed this team to crumble. He navigated through a slew of early injuries and has put his team on a pace to battle for the NL East crown. Williams’ public handling of Harper’s comments about how he’d arrange the lineup upon his return was an example of how to quickly defuse what otherwise could become a distraction. Grade: B+

Soccer Myths in America After every World Cup, no matter how far the U.S. team goes, the same topic arises: What does it all mean for the popularization of soccer in America? With the 2014 World Cup coming to an end this weekend, let’s debunk some American-made myths that seem to emerge every four years. JEFFREY TOMIK AND MICHAEL CUNNIFF (E XPRESS)

GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

3. Myth: Sure, the World Cup is big, but soccer will never be mainstream here. Unless you define “mainstream” as “on par with the NFL,” soccer is already here. Despite being a glorified minor league compared with other soccer leagues around the world, MLS has higher per-game attendance than both the NBA and the NHL. On television, NBCSN’s English Premier League coverage gets better ratings than the NHL does during the regular season on the same network, despite most games starting before half the country wakes up.

NATACHA PISARENKO (AP)

2. Myth: Soccer needs to get rid of the offside rule and stoppage time. While doing away with offside would probably increase scoring, it would also ugly up the game by rewarding cherry-picking and boom ball. Skillful midfield play would be lost, as the gameplay would be stretched from end to end. As for stoppage time, it’s a necessity in a game with so many stall tactics. These are two basic principals in the sport that won’t change. Rather than get worked up over the rules, just enjoy the game the way it’s played.

4. Myth: Nobody flops like a soccer player. Have you watched a basketball game? Flopping in the NBA has gotten so bad that the league has started to fine its players. In all sports, players embellish to fool referees. Even in the NFL, they often exaggerate any sort of contact to earn personal foul or pass interference calls. Soccer has attempted to thwart flopping by handing out yellow cards (although not one ref has done so in this World Cup). Flopping is an issue in soccer, but it’s naive to think it’s the only sport where it happens.

Argentina’s Sergio Romero has answered most sceptics. Advantage: Germany

LAURENCE GRIFFITHS (GETTY IMAGES)

1. Myth: America needs its best athletes, like LeBron James, playing soccer for the U.S. to be truly competitive with the rest of the world. While U.S. soccer would surely improve with youngsters consistently choosing it over playing football, basketball or baseball, great size and strength aren’t as beneficial in soccer as they are in other sports. The best player in the world, Lionel Messi, is 5-foot-7 and 148 pounds. The Argentinian probably can’t dunk, but in soccer, he doesn’t have any problems getting around defenders of every shape and size.

5. Myth: Soccer is un-American. Bizarre Ann Coulter screeds about the game aside, soccer couldn’t be more American. Schoolchildren learn about America’s origins: the underfunded, undermanned colonies banding together to rebel against the big, bad British. Today, the U.S. is generally the superpower in almost everything it does. But when we watch the men’s national team, we get to adopt the “scrappy underdog” tag again, watching our (mostly) underpaid heroes become more than the sum of their parts when they don whatever hideous jersey Nike has them wearing.

Defense: Germany had little trouble neutralizing the explosive attacks of both France and Brazil. Argentina’s defense was seen as its main weakness going into the World Cup, but the team has now gone 330 minutes without conceding a goal in the knockout rounds. Advantage: Germany 6. Myth: Soccer is boring. This one is actually kind of true — soccer sometimes is boring. The Netherlands-Argentina game is a perfect example. But soccer is held to an impossible standard — no sport is exciting all the time. Baseball features about an hour per game of pitchers just looking for a sign, while football players spend more time in the huddle than actually playing football. Americans love those sports because of the excitement that breaks the tedium, and there may not be anything in sports more thrilling than a late game-winning goal, like John Brooks’ header to lead the U.S. to a 2-1 victory over Ghana last month.

Midfield: This is Germany’s biggest strength, a unit without weakness that plays together as a well-oiled machine. The Argentines, meanwhile, are hoping that Angel Di Maria will recover from a thigh injury to play in the final. Advantage: Germany Attack: Germany has the highest-scoring player in World Cup history in Miroslav Klose. But Argentina has Lionel Messi, and two other top forwards to boot. While Messi hasn’t scored in the three knockout games, his four goals in the group stage reminded everyone of why he’s a four-time world player of the year. Advantage: Argentina

Cubs’ Rizzo earns spot on NL All-Star roster from the fans Baseball

Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale and Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo were voted by fans onto the rosters for Tuesday’s All-Star game, and Los Angeles Angels shortstop Erick Aybar will replace Kansas City outfielder Alex Gordon. Rizzo received 8.8 million votes among the 52.5 million ballots and Sale 6.7 million, Major League Baseball said Thursday. Voting was conducted on MLB.com, team websites and Twitter. MLB did not release voting totals for players other than the winners. The Nationals’ Anthony Rendon was in fourth place earlier in the week. He entered Thursday’s game with a .284 batting average, 13 home runs and 52 RBIs. The other losing NL players

The Apartments at CityCenter in downtown D.C. worked with landscape architects to create green spaces for residents like Joe Ament, pictured.

Local apartments bring lush, green landscapes to their urban settings Amenities

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

When Joe Ament wandered up to the grassy public patio on the fifth floor of his building, the Apartments at CityCenter DC, on a recent Friday night, he was expecting to have a quiet evening. Instead, “someone calls out my name,” recalls Ament. “And sure enough, some of the other residents were having cocktails.” Ament ended up spending the evening socializing with his neighbors. That’s the idea. The Apartments at CityCenter (825 and 875 10th St. NW; 888481-7392, apartmentsatcitycenter.com), the rental portion of the massive multiuse development, has gotten a lot of attention for trying to lure tenants to the urban center of the District. Studios in the new building start at $2,130 a month and onebedrooms start at $2,728.

Green Spaces

Back and Forth on Basement Rentals

Continued from page R1

Though the neighborhood, just south of the Washington Convention Center, wasn’t known for its greenery, developers wanted the inside of the building to feel less densely urban and more landscaped and light-filled. “Outdoor spaces were always a big focus of ours,” says Jason Jacobson, managing director at Hines, the developer behind the Apartments at CityCenter. “We wanted to bring the outside in.” The Apartments at CityCenter hired local landscape design firm Lee and Associates so early on in the process that the team was working with the architects before the structure was built. “We did extensive sun/shade studies to figure out how much sun landed on the courtyards,” says Jeff Lee, president of Lee and Associates.

nextweek To maximize their appeal to millennials, apartment developers are thinking smaller. Read about micro-units in next week’s issue.

Yes, that’s “courtyards,” plural. Inside CityCenter’s monolithic exterior, architects carved out a series of open spaces. “On the interior, it’s sculpted terraces, which let light down to every level,” says Ben Tauber of Lee and Associates. The end result is landscaped public spaces throughout the building. A top-floor roofdeck with grills and tables is covered in local succulents. A dog run on the top floor sits adjacent to a green roof, which absorbs rainwater. On the fifth floor, an indoor game room opens onto an outdoor pool, and there are plans to decorate the deck around the pool with seasonal plants. Across a chasm, also on the fifth floor, a grassy terrace with tables looks out onto the pool. And below it all, the second floor’s mossy garden is clearly visible from the gym. Lee calls the terraced effect “The Hanging Gardens of Babylon.” Each space gets dif fering amounts of light, so each has different fauna. That’s why the sunsoaked roof deck gets succulents while one corner of the secondfloor courtyard is so shady it could only sustain moss. The plants are all sourced locally, and the green roof helps. “There’s a short-term benefit

Basement apartments are polarizing rentals around town. At least once a day as I’m helping people find rentals, I hear this phrase: “No basement apartments!” But many also prefer them. So let’s look at why some renters love this type of home, which is often nestled beneath a rowhouse, and why others absolutely loathe it. There are good arguments from both camps. Just remember: Only you can assess which apartment is the right fit and will be a wonderful place to call home. NANCY SIMMONS

JASON HORNICK (FOR EXPRESS)

A D.C.-area Realtor offers pros and cons to keep in mind when on the apartment hunt

STARRS ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Basement apartments are plentiful thanks to D.C.’s rowhouse scene.

THE UPSIDE Outdoor space: Basement units give you direct access to the outdoors without having to walk through a corridor or down stairs, a convenience that, say, dog owners and backyard grillmasters alike can enjoy. With the owner’s permission, you also may be able to use the outdoor space to plant a garden. Privacy: Some people prefer a private entrance into their home and many basement apartments will have their own entry separate from the main one that everyone else uses. Cooler: During the summer, basement units will typically be cooler, so you can save some money on your air-conditioning bills. Washer and dryer: You may have direct access to the washer and dryer without having to go down steps. Cost and appearance: Basement units are usually less costly to rent than their larger upstairs counterparts. Some units have been nicely updated by their owners, which will bring the price up, but sometimes a nicer quality kitchen may be well worth the price if that is your priority.

THE DOWNSIDE Flooding: Basements can have flooding issues. Flooding may not happen all the time, but you have to be aware of this when you are viewing an apartment. Be sure to look for signs of flooding or dampness. A damp space can also have mold, so be aware, especially if you have allergies. Lack of natural light: Many basement apartments are not going to have a great amount of sunlight. Some of them can have good light, if the apartment is partially above ground or if there are some bigger windows. You just have to look at each one to determine if there is enough light for you. Possibly less secure: You may not have the level of security that you have in a unit, say, in the upper levels of an apartment building that aren’t directly accessible from the street and that require visitors to be buzzed in. Doors and windows need to be secured, and, depending on your neighborhood, a security system is not a bad idea. Cooler: While it can provide relief in the summer, a cool basement can be miserable in the winter. Make sure the heating system is working properly and that windows and exterior doors are sealed.

The Apartments at CityCenter’s green spaces aren’t confined to the rooftops. A series of landscaped terraces mean you can see green throughout the building.

in terms of reduced water use and reduced energy use,” Jacobson says of the green roof. Plus, “we think in the long term it helps us lease our buildings and keep them leased longer,” he says. “If they can feel a little bit better about living in this building, it not only gets them here, but keeps them here longer.” Across town, at Trilogy NoMa, shared spaces are also a selling point, says sales and marketing manager Bethany Hight. With three mid-rise buildings sitting on one and a half city blocks, “it’s nice and spread out,” Hight says. That allowed Trilogy NoMa (151 Q St. NE; trilogynoma.com) to make space for two ground-floor interior courtyards, which feature things like fountains, a rock garden, a grill and plenty of seating. In addition, there are two outdoor pools with open nearby lounge

“I live in a studio. ... But at the end of the day, because of the communal areas, it was a much better living experience.” — JOE A MEN T, ON HOW HIS MOVE FROM A TWO-BEDROOM UNIT IN ALEX ANDRIA TO A STUDIO AT THE APARTMENTS AT CIT YCENTER IN D.C. HAS PAID OFF

areas. There’s also a fenced in “Bark Park,” where dog owners can let their dogs off the leash. “The bark park’s a total hit for the pet owners,” Hight says. “People like to interact and meet each other.” “A lot of the renters like the fact that we have more lounge spaces outside than a traditional highrise,” Hight says. Studios at Trilogy NoMa start in the mid $1,500s, and one-bedrooms start at $1,825. They also have twobedrooms beginning at $2,600. Ament, who works for A Briggs, a passport and visa expediting service, says the extra public spaces were one reason he chose to rent at CityCenter. “For me, the public spaces are very important because I live in a studio,” says Ament, who downsized his square footage when he moved to D.C. from Alexandria. “The space was smaller, but at the end of the day, because of the communal areas, it was a much better living experience.” He says the shared green spaces have helped him meet others in the building, and that monthly gettogethers organized by the building managers, frequently outdoor cocktail parties, help too. “You’re downtown. You’re surrounded by concrete,” Ament says. “But you’re in your own little sanctuary.” BETH MARLOWE (E XPRES S)

No Monkey Business

Tom Schilling is slacker Niko in the character-driven “A Coffee in Berlin.”

‘A Coffee in Berlin’ (UNRATED, 88 MINUTES)

Jan Ole Gerster’s “A Coffee in Berlin” has a German “Seinfeld” kind of feel, where Tom Schilling plays straight man 20-something slacker Niko and wacky characters drift in and out of view. The one thing Niko wants is a cup of coffee, but he’s thwarted at every turn, whether it’s because a machine is broken or he doesn’t have enough change. Like most things, though, he doesn’t try particularly hard to get what he wants. The film manages to make an entertaining story out of nothing in particular. And just when you get comfortable passively observing a passive observer, the minutest of twists becomes its own call to action. It urges the audience to consider this small story in a broader context. STEPHANIE MERRY (TWP)

‘A Summer’s Tale’ (G, 114 MINUTES)

French new-wave director Eric Rohmer made “A Summer’s Tale” in 1996 as part of his “Tales of the Four Seasons.” It’s arguably the best of the four films but was the only one not released commercially in the United States. College graduate Gaspard (Melvil Poupaud) arrives at a beach town and has no significant conversations for two days. But soon he’ll be juggling the conversations — and expectations — of three women. “A Summer’s Tale” is comic and much more complicated than it first seems. The realistic dialogue and naturalistic performances suggest a casual approach, but as the story progresses, the filmmaker’s control is increasingly evident. MARK JENKINS (TWP)

The latest film in the ‘Planet of the Apes’ reboot uses animals to tell a human story Film Review

If the CGI apes stole the show from their less lifelike human counterparts in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” the two groups are more evenly matched in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” The latest chapter in the rebooted sci-fi franchise charts the emergence of a culture of super-intelligent chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans and the simultaneous decline of the human race, after it is nearly destroyed by a laboratory virus. In the process, the movie presents us with two equally engaging and frustrating families: one human and one ape. As the film opens, chimp leader Caesar — movingly played by Andy Serkis with a mix of motion-capture technology and digital animation — is living peacefully in the woods outside San Francisco with his pregnant partner, Cornelia (Judy Greer), and their adolescent son, known as Blue Eyes (Nick Thurston). But an incursion by members of a colony of virus-resistant humans from the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge leads to tension, not just between Man and his closest nonhuman cousin, but between factions from each group that can’t agree whether to trust or to attack their neighbors. Leading the human negotiating team is the pacifist Malcolm (Jason Clarke), whose job is made harder

The movie presents us with two equally engaging and frustrating families: one human and one ape. clashes with the ape Koba (Toby Kebbell). An embittered chimpanzee who still bears the scars from his years in a research laboratory, Koba hates and mistrusts all humans. This sets up parallel struggles within species. The film’s plentiful action is thrilling at times — even if some of the ape-on-ape fight sequences don’t fully register as real — and the cinematography

has a dark and dramatic intensity. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” works both as allegory and actionadventure film. The internecine conflict between apes mirrors the troubled history of our own race. It isn’t just that Caesar is a better ape than Koba, but that both of them, tragically, embody a dual nature that is all too human. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Close to Home: Scarlett Johansson is in talks to join the cast of the new film from the Coen brothers, “Hail Caesar.” Variety reports that Johansson would play an actress in the 1950s who becomes pregnant just as she is set to begin shooting a film. Johansson announced her own pregnancy in March. The cast already includes Josh Brolin and George Clooney. Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are also in talks to star. (E XPRESS)

DEAR MANOLO ANSWERS FROM THE SHOE BLOGGER

Now that the Fourth of July is over and my two weeks of vacation are finished, I need some snazzy sandals to cheer me up. Something not too costly, please. — BRIANNA Manolo says it is true, the saddest days of adulthood are those hot days of summer when your annual vacation has ended and you are stuck back inside at the place of the office, working for The Man. Yes, your first morning back is tolerable because it is filled with the bustle of the working and the entertainmenting of catching up on the office gossip. The second day, Tuesday, however, is when the sadness begins. For the first 18 years of your existence your summers were filled with the utopic months of freedom from responsibility and homework. Your school and it’s disciplinarian, Mr. Wegnogson, the evil vice principal who was the bane of your youthful life, and whom your current supervisor vaguely resembles, were weeks away in either direction.

A Channel-Changer Thursday’s Primetime Emmy Awards nominations served up some surprises (Ricky Gervais?) alongside the usual suspects (Bryan Cranston, of course). HBO’s fantasy epic “Game of Thrones” landed the most nominations with 19, followed by FX’s newcomer “Fargo,” which picked up 18 nominations by submitting as a miniseries. Here are our immediate reactions to the nominees. EMILY YAHR (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Which drama did “True Detective” bump off the best drama list? (It joins “Breaking Bad,” “Downton Abbey,” “House of Cards,” “Mad Men” and “Game of Thrones.”) That would be 2012 winner “Homeland.” The Showtime terrorism nailbiter got knocked off the list after a roundly criticized season — however, star Claire Danes did pick up

a nod for best actress in a drama. She’s joined by Michelle Dockery of “Downton Abbey,” Robin Wright of “House of Cards” and Kerry Washington of “Scandal.” Julianna Margulies jumped back on the list for “The Good Wife,” while Lizzy Caplan picked up her first nom for Showtime series “Masters of Sex.”

A Crowded Field While Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson represent “True Detective” on the lead actor in a drama list, the frontrunner is surely Bryan Cranston for his performance during the final season of “Breaking Bad,” when the show morphed from cult favorite to cultural phenomenon.

Jon Hamm was nominated for the seventh straight time for “Mad Men,” along with Kevin Spacey on “House of Cards” and last year’s surprise winner, “The Newsroom’s” Jeff Daniels.

Laugh It Up Over on the comedy side, HBO’s “Silicon Valley” — a satirical send-up of tech and startup culture — picked up a surprise nomination in the best comedy category, alongside heavyweights “Modern Family” (which has never lost on Emmys night) and academy favorites “Veep,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Louie.”  Also in the category: “Orange Is the New Black,” submitted as a comedy.

Funny Girls Melissa McCarthy is back on the list for lead actress in a comedy for “Mike & Molly,” along with Lena Dunham of “Girls,” Amy Poehler of “Parks and Recreation,” Taylor Schilling of “Orange Is the New Black” and the unstoppable Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won in the category the past two years, also got a nod and would seem to be the favorite yet again.

Really? Ricky Gervais, whom Hollywood loves to hate, scored a surprising nod in the comedy lead actor category alongside Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” (who notched his third win last year), Don Cheadle of “House of Lies,” Matt LeBlanc of “Episodes” and Louis C.K. of “Louie.” And “Shameless” landed a nomination for lead actor William H. Macy.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be torn between two interests — one that can propel you forward at a rapid pace, and one that is simply an amusing diversion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’re likely to receive news that displeases you on the one hand and provides you with the excuse you have been waiting for on the other. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Someone with whom you have much in common is likely to express himself or herself in a way that catches you off guard. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You’re eager to get started on something that is both new and old at the same time. What transpires gives you renewed energy and enthusiasm. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ve been waiting some time for a very simple “yes” or “no” answer, and today it may be yours. What happens as a result will take off!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The consequences of actions that are not thoroughly thought out may come back to haunt you. Take the time to plan carefully.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re likely to get some valuable ideas from the most unusual sources, and you are the kind to consider every possible notion.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You don’t usually involve yourself in issues that don’t affect you directly, but today is not a usual day in this regard.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) While others are waiting on a big decision that you’re in the process of making, you mustn’t distract yourself with idle amusements.

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.
