For 31/2 years, Nyerere Mitchell rode around D.C.’s nightlife hotspots hunting for drunk people. The 50-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to convincing more than 60 of them to hop into his “taxi” (a silver Range Rover SUV), taking them to an ATM and withdrawing the “fare” for them.

But nearly 18 months into a crash turnaround effort, there are encouraging signs. Patient volumes and billings are up, doctors are joining rather than fleeing the staff, and, for the first time in at least a decade, there is more than sufficient money in the bank. Last month, the hospital announced that it will not require a government operating subsidy for the first time since the District seized control of it in 2010. Small, who was hired by the city’s turnaround contractor, said perceptions are starting to change: Patients are coming to Swim, and be free! United Medical Center by choice. But the story is not yet a fairy tale. The hospital remains housed in a building that is increasingly expensive to maintain. The ultimate goal of partnering with a larger private owner has yet to be reached. The process has been complicated by the pending election, since the next mayor’s approach to questions about the hospital’s future is largely unknown. A proposal from Mayor Vincent Gray to build a new hospital nearby has been met with skepticism from the D.C. Council. Mayoral candidate David Catania, an At-large Council member who moved to stabilize the hospital when it was foundering under private ownership, opposes the proposal to build a new hospital. A spokesman for Democratic nominee and Council member Muriel Bowser said the hospital bailouts arranged by Catania amounted to “a Band-Aid, not a fix” and said Bowser has not ruled out a new hospital.

Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are battling a 14-count indictment that alleges they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to businessman Jonnie Williams Sr. in exchange for gifts and money. Jurors resumed hearing testimony Monday. ( THE WASHINGTON POST ) Aide: First lady tried to pitch Mitt Romney Bob McDonnell’s political adviser, Phil Cox, testified that Maureen and Williams attempted to pitch a dietary supplement to Mitt Romney. Cox said that a meeting never happened, but Maureen did pitch Ann Romney, telling her the dietary supplement could potentially cure her multiple sclerosis. “I was horrified,” Cox said. But governor ‘least materialistic person’ After blasting Maureen from the stand, Cox gave much more flattering testimony about the former governor. “He’s the least materialistic person I know.” Cox said Bob McDonnell was only engaged in “constituent service” and “donor maintenance” when he sent Williams emails about Star Scientific and its stock price. McDonnells never said no to gifts Prosecutor Michael Dry asked Williams if Maureen ever said the Rolex watch he’d bought at her direction was too expensive.“Did she ever say, ‘That’s too much’?” Dry asked. “No,” Williams said.“Did Mr. McDonnell ever call and say, ‘Hey, you shouldn’t be buying things for my family’?” Dry asked. “No,” Williams said. “A lot of the requests I declined.” Maureen’s ‘crush’ is news to Williams Williams testified that the “crush defense” that emerged last week was news to him. Asked flatly by Dry if he ever had “any physical or intimate relationship with Mrs. McDonnell,” Williams said: “I didn’t know Mrs. McDonnell had any interest in me till last week,” when her defense unveiled the alleged romantic connection.

Violence hits Jerusalem as leaders seek a truce JERUSALEM A pair of attacks along the line separating east and west Jerusalem set this bitterly contested city on edge Monday amid fears that the war in the Gaza Strip will spawn violence far beyond the territory’s boundaries. In one of the Jerusalem attacks, an Arab construction worker used his backhoe to run down an Israel civilian and then topple a nearly empty bus. The civilian was killed and three others were injured, including the bus driver, according to a police spokesman. Police fatally shot the construction worker, who was identified as an East Jerusalem resident in his 20s. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called for more such attacks, describing it as a “brave resistance action.” The assaults prompted Israeli police armed with automatic weapons to set up makeshift checkpoints. In Gaza, the battle slowed but did not stop on Monday, despite Israel’s unilateral declaration of a seven-hour pause in the fight. Just minutes after the ceasefire was due to kick in Monday, Israel fired two missiles at a house in the Shati refugee camp in northern Gaza, killing at least three people, including an 8-year-old girl, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. The attack prompted Hamas to accuse Israel of deceit — a familiar refrain in a conflict that has proven a graveyard for truces. Later Monday, Israel and Hamas accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal, raising hopes that the bloodiest round of fighting between the bitter enemies could finally be coming to an end. Still, both sides signaled a rough road ahead, with an Israeli official expressing skepticism given previous failures, and a Palestinian negotiator saying “it’s going to be tough.” (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST) To Scrabble fanatics, big gifts sometimes come in small packages.

Here’s a look at some of the best and worst gifts President Barack Obama’s received in office. For a complete ranking of all 274 gifts, go to washingtonpost.com. PHILIP BUMP (THE WASHINGTON POST) ‘Worse than al-Qaeda’ With oil wealth and vast territory, extremist Islamic State is an unprecedented threat IRAQ It’s a pattern of territorial expansion that has now become familiar. After the Islamic State captured Sinjar, Iraq, on Sunday, came the executions. Then arrived the orders to convert or die, the flash of the movement’s black flag, the fleeing of thousands — and, finally, the jubilant and chilling images on social media. One showed a destroyed Shiite shrine, which had long sat in the ancient city of Sinjar in northwestern Iraq. Another depicted the executions of several blindfolded men. There was an image of two masked men who had climbed a tall building, enshrouded its edifice in a black Islamic State flag, and blasted a pistol into the air. Then there was a picture showing a masked jihadist hoisting a gun at the desk of the town’s mayor. The armed movement, which has surged in wealth, manpower and resources in recent weeks, also took the town of Wana on Sunday. The Islamic State routed the Kurdish army and forced an exodus of residents that the United Nations said numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Calling the situation a “humanitarian tragedy,” a top U.N. envoy to Iraq said in a statement that their expulsion was “dire.” Equally worrisome is what the Islamic State, led by the mysterious Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, will do with the Mosul Dam, which it may soon seize — if it hasn’t already. There were conflicting reports Sunday as to who controlled Iraq’s largest dam. The militants have a record of using water as a means of terrorism. It could open the flood gates and deluge major Iraqi cities or withhold water from farms. It’s just the latest step in the Islamic State’s regional expansion. What was recently a ragtag cadre of former al-Qaeda operatives has now morphed into a transnational, fully militarized operation said to control more than one-third of Syria’s territory. It’s “worse than al-Qaeda,” Behind its growth Islamic State has a keen eye for resources and cash, which some suspect is the fulcrum of its growth. In addition to stealing and selling ancient relics worth tens of millions and looting hundreds of millions from banks, it also recently captured a Syrian gas field along with other oil fields, Reuters reported. Experts estimate the group is pocketing as much as $3 million a day in oil revenue by selling off resources on black markets. (TWP) “They are savages. We’ve seen what they’ve done to people of their own faith. Imagine what they would do to us non-Muslims.” ILIAS AL-HUSSANI, 27, on the Islamic Brett McGurk, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran, told lawmakers last month. It “is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a fullblown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.” Some accounts say it’s already done it. In the Syrian town of Raqqah, called the Islamic State’s capital, the movement governs with an austere, barbaric but orderly hand. According to a New York Times report, crime is rare, traffic cops keep the streets moving, and tax collectors are organized. Those accused of theft have lost hands. It’s a glimpse of what may be coming to the rest of the captured territory, a swath of terrain spilling across borders.

Mark Warner, when asked about his summer plans, Politico reports. “I may sneak off for a day or two, but don’t think I’m going to talk about it.” (TWP/EXPRESS) Europeans, with their 20 to 30 days of paid vacation a year, know how to relax. Above, folks sit on Brighton beach in Sussex, southern England, last month. Let’s ditch this place Sending everyone on vacation at once may be better for society HEALTH We Americans work hard. Weekends are more like workends. We sleep with our smartphones. And we think vacations are for wimps. So we don’t take them. Or we take work along with us if we do. But what if taking vacation not only made you healthier and happier, as a number of studies have shown, but everyone around you? And what if everybody took vacation at the same time? Would life be better, not just for you, but for the entire society? Yes indeed, says Terry Hartig, an environmental psychologist at Uppsala University in Sweden. When people go on a relaxing vacation, they tend to return happier and more relaxed. (The operative word here being relaxing, not frenzied.) And those mellow, good vibes, Hartig said, spread “like a contagion” to everyone you come in contact with. Send everyone All of these people celebrating Memorial Day on Coney Island probably headed back to work refreshed, making life better for those around them. away on vacation at the same time, and that contagion takes off through the population like a viral happiness pandemic. Hartig calls it “collective restoration.” To test his theory, Hartig studied monthly anti-depressant prescriptions in Sweden between 1993 and 2005. He found that the more people took vacations at the same time, the more prescriptions dropped exponentially. Summer, by far, was the happiest time — or at least saw the steepest declines in The estimated number of unused vacation days left on the table every year by U.S. workers. And even when they take vacations, many say they take work along with them. All those unused days add up to $67 billion in lost travel spending, according to a recent report by Oxford Economics, an economic forecasting group. (TWP) 577M WASTED TIME anti-depressant prescriptions. It’s no surprise why: Since 1977, Swedish law has mandated that every worker have five weeks of paid vacation every year. And workers can take four consecutive weeks off in the summer. “It’s like there’s this national agreement that it’s vacation time, and work will be left aside,” Hartig said. So instead of working and being distracted, people get outside. They do things they enjoy. The benefits, Hartig said, are huge. Not only is the society happier, but workers are more rested and productive, relationships are closer and people are healthier. One study found that men who don’t take vacations are 30 percent more likely to have heart attacks than those who do. For women, it’s 50 percent. Women who fail to take vacation are more likely to suffer from depression. Europeans, with their 20 and 30 days of paid vacation every year, live longer and spend less on health care than Americans, Hartig said. But that kind of widespread, vacation-induced health and euphoria is unlikely BEN STANSALL (AFP/GETTY IMAGES) ERIC THAYER (GETTY IMAGES) to hit the U.S. anytime soon. “Collective restoration,” Hartig said, is only possible if the entire population can coordinate time off. And the only way to do that, he argues, is through national policy. The U.S. is the only advanced economy with no national vacation policy. (Unless you count Suriname, Nepal and Guyana.) That’s unlikely to change, but some are trying. The travel and tourism industry has launched the Vacation Equality Project and is pushing Congress for a guaranteed minimum amount of paid vacation. John de Graaf, who has been working on the campaign, said it’s a tough sell in the U.S., where vacation is seen as an “extraneous luxury” of little benefit to anyone. “People don’t experience very much vacation in the United States, so they’re inclined not to understand its value,” he said.

There were plenty of Patriots fans lining the fields, but Redskins fans sensed something special, too. At the first of three joint practices before the teams will meet in Thursday’s preseason opener, the crowd hushed every time Brady threw a pass. And he delivered. Brady completed 5 of 6 in his first series against the Redskins’ starting defense, 2 of 3 with a deep touchdown in the next drive and 5 of 6 in the final series. Overall, Brady completed 12 of 15 with two drops and a score. Without a real pass rush — as quarterbacks aren’t touched in camp — Brady spread the field. “Nothing’s better than Tom and Peyton [Manning],” Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. “Watch Tom’s demeanor in the huddle.” Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III didn’t see Brady often, as they worked on opposite fields until team drills began. Griffin then stood behind the Patriots and watched Brady work — talking with offensive coordinator Sean McVay as if they saw something they might try. Griffin didn’t lose the home fans to Brady, though, throwing long balls to DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed. The option run that worked well twice last week against his teammates was stoned by the Patriots, though. Mostly, the two teams kept to themselves. It was the same drills in the same fashion — only occasionally going against a different opponent. Perhaps the lone intense moment came when the Redskins’ offensive linemen faced off against the Patriots’ defensive linemen. The drill surely left Washington guard Spencer Long with a sore throat when a New England defender grabbed him high. This is Redskins defensive lineman Kedric Golston’s THREE POINTERS RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU Nationals MVP so far Jayson Werth was named NL player of the month for July on Monday.

There were plenty of Patriots fans lining the fields, but Redskins fans sensed something special, too. ninth season in Washington, so he was interested in seeing another team’s approach to training camp. “We’re just trying to see their tempo and how they run their systems,” Golston said. “It’s just business as usual.” As for deciphering how well the team did against anyone not named Brady, Washington left tackle Trent Williams echoed several teammates’ uncertainty. The Redskins didn’t game-plan these practices against the Patriots. “We didn’t scout them or anything so we were going out there blind,” Williams said. “We run basic stuff.” The Redskins saw evidence that an elite NFL team does the same things they do — just better. It’s not a hard lesson to learn. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978.

The 23-year-old Wilson was told by doctors Monday that he risked more serious problems if he kept playing. He underwent fusion surgery to repair vertebrae and a herniated disk in his neck in January. Then at practice last Tuesday, Wilson caught a pass and ran with his head down into the back of an offensive lineman, a hit that caused numbness in his hands and lower extremities. He missed the final 11 games last season after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal cord. “I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for me, or pity me,” he said in a statement released by the team. “I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another Giants running back David Wilson ran for 504 yards in two seasons. dream and live that, too.” Wilson was drafted in the first round, 32nd overall, out of Virginia Tech in 2012. As a rookie, he rushed for 358 yards and scored four touchdowns while making his mark as a kick returner. Wilson led the NFL with 1,533 kickoff return yards, a team record. Wilson had only 146 yards on 44 carries and one touchdown in five games last season before the injury. His condition is not expected to require additional surgery or therapy.

The Terps — coming off a 7-6 season — look to build off last year’s progress. Here are three summer camp storylines as Maryland enters its first season in the Big Ten. ROMAN STUBB S ( THE WASHINGTON POST ) NFL GETTY IMAGES PHOTOS 1 Can C.J. Brown finally stay healthy? 2 Who will provide depth along offensive line? 3 How will the secondary fare? Bad health has been a narrative of Maryland the past two seasons, and it starts with C.J. Brown. The sixthyear quarterback enters his final year with a chance to lead one of the Big Ten’s most exciting offenses. But Brown has missed about two years of his career due to injury. When he’s healthy, he’s capable of being a special player — he had more than 2,000 yards passing and 500 rushing last season. Coach Randy Edsall said last week that he was pleased with the offensive line’s growth during the spring, but the coaching staff still needs to find depth. The line has a quality veteran in senior Sal Conaboy, who was named to the Rimington Trophy watch list for college football’s best center. Expect several position battles, including at left guard between Silvano Altamirano and junior Evan Mulrooney. Maryland returns starters at all three levels on defense, but it will have to continue polishing its secondary during camp. It has two reliable safeties in Sean Davis and Anthony Nixon, and veteran A.J. Hendy has played in 30 games and provides quality depth. Finding a solid rotation of cornerbacks seems like the more pressing task. Sophomore William Likely, who made strides as a freshman, is expected to start. The amount of the sixyear contract extension quarterback Andy Dalton signed Monday with the Bengals, according to multiple reports. The deal makes the fourth-year passer, who has made the postseason in each of his NFL seasons but has yet to earn his first playoff victory, one of the highestpaid quarterbacks in the league.

There’s an app for that — on this treadmill, above. Technogym’s new Unity console integrates a smartphone-like screen with its cardio equipment, giving users endless entertainment and tracking options. Marriott Marquis Washington has outfitted its 8,000-square-foot gym exclusively with this technology. “Our guests like to work and play,” says Marriott’s Mark Indre. Now they can scan Facebook while keeping tabs on how far they’ve gone. And their workout info travels with them no matter where they go. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS) Exercise guru Tammy Stokes demonstrates how to use Even Hotel’s exercise equipment. No need to pack a gym Rockville’s Even Hotel encourages travelers to exercise and eat well TRAVEL Even Hotel marked its grand opening on Rockville Pike last month with the ceremonial unrolling of a giant yoga mat. It was an appropriate welcome for the 167-room property from the InterContinental Hotels Group. “In our research, we found a lot of people who said, ‘I have a wellness routine at home. It would be great if a hotel helped me stay on the wagon,’ ” says Adam Glickman, head of the Even brand. By rethinking every aspect of the traveler experience with a focus on health, his team developed a model he believes will be the future of the hospitality industry. For now, there are just two Even locations — one opened earlier this summer in Norwalk, Conn. Three more are slated to open in New York in 2015. Guests walking into any Even Hotel will be greeted with assorted fruit-infused waters. (The current Rockville lineup includes lime cucumber mint and watermelon rosemary.) At check-in, they get a cooling towel, along with the option of purchasing a sweat-proof wristband that can be used in place of a regular key. When it’s time to head to their rooms, guests can skip the elevators and take the staircase. Printed footsteps show the way, so it’s easy to find. Bright windows and inspirational signs (“Stay one step ahead today”) make it a pleasant climb. In the rooms (with rates starting at $89), the lights have dimmers and can change color, Glickman points out. The pillows come in squishy and firm varieties. And the desk and chair are on wheels, so “you feel in control of the space,” he says. A panel next to the TV also flips down to create a standing desk. Instead of a minibar stuffed Rooms to move Georgia-based fitness expert Tammy Stokes was tapped to develop Even Hotels’ in-room exercise program. The Even Trainer, above, lets users anchor resistance bands at different points, which allows them to do a huge range of movements in a small space, she says. There are 19 channels of looping fitness programs on the TV, and a book of other exercise options, so guests have no excuse not to try something. V.H. with tempting junk, there’s just an empty fridge. And instead of a pricey bottle of water, there’s a reusable water bottle that guests can take home free of charge. The most obvious difference? An area with cork flooring devoted to exercise. Each room is stocked with a stability ball, a yoga mat, a block and a foam roller, as well as the Even Trainer (see box). There’s also a fancy “athletic studio” on the ground floor near the lobby. (“So members of our team can go in and give highfives,” Glickman says.) It boasts Woodway treadmills and other top-of-the-line equipment, plus a “flex” room off to the side for cycling and yoga classes. After a workout, guests can refuel at Cork & Kale. The restaurant’s menu options include yogurts, flatbreads and salads — all with labels highlighting whether dishes are vegan, have fewer than 426 calories or fit other criteria. “People get it,” says Scott Blakeslee, Even’s chief wellness officer, who leads morning runs twice a week. And it’s not just the business travelers, he adds. On a recent night, 8-year-old Emma Collins of Denton, Texas, picked up a fresh-squeezed orange juice and deemed everything about the place “awesome.” “This encourages both kids and adults,” her mom Margaret said. Maybe it’ll encourage some other hotels, too.

My girlfriend and I have a good relationship. But she talks and laughs very, very loudly. I like how big her personality is when we are together. But when we are in restaurants and other places, I have to tell her to lower the volume. She resents this and gets sullen every single time it happens. SHE’S LOUD, DC How we talk, just like how we look, is a fundamental part of who we are. For many people it feels impossible to separate this from how they view themselves as an individual. So, no matter how you bring it up, she might take it as a criticism of her very nature, and she might think it’s impossible to change even if she wanted to. You like her personality: Might her loudness come along with a particular humor or boldness that is part of what you like? You might not be able to cherrypick those parts while ditching the loudness. And is she truly disrupting others? Or are you just cringing because she stands out, and you haven’t gotten used to it yet? Dig deeper about whether you “have” to tell her to lower the volume, or if it’s something that you can and — if you want to be with her — should tolerate. Send your questions for Baggage Check to Dr. Andrea Bonior at baggage@ wpost.com. Andrea is a local clinical psychologist and author of the book “The Friendship Fix” (friendshipfix.com). How to squash that fear of bugs Q. My mother has a fear of bugs that is so intense that I swear she has serious mental problems. She is completely out of control — and has been for as long as I can remember. How can I get her to see that it is not normal to yell and scream just because there is a beetle or spider near her? MY MOM HAS A PROBLEM Well, it’s not by telling her you think she has “serious mental problems.” Plenty of people live with abject fears of bugs. What determines whether getting help is advisable is how much distress those fears cause her, and how much disruption there is in her life. If she’s yelling and screaming on a daily basis because of bugs, perhaps that passes the test, but you’ve got to get her on board. The good news is that specific phobias like this are among the most straightforward of disorders to treat, and a commitment to several weeks of cognitive-behavioral therapy could likely do her a lot of good. Notice, though, nothing in any of this says “serious mental problems,” and neither should you — especially if you want her to actually be willing to work on it. DR.

Wait for a full moon (there’s one on Sunday) and hike to the top of Shenandoah National Park’s Hawksbill Mountain to watch the sun set. That’s what Elliott likes to do — he even brings a picnic blanket and candles “for that added touch,” he says. He eats dinner at the summit, which, at 4,050 feet, is the highest in Shenandoah National Park, then treks back down by moonlight or flashlight. (Depending on where you park, the hike length can range from 2 to 3 miles — all options are fairly steep, though.) 4 If you’re a night owl 600-Hour state approved Personal Training Diploma Program Get in shape while going to school Help others while pursuing a financially rewarding career Job placement assistance Financial aid available to those who qualify Approved for VA benefits Day, evening, and weekend classes to fit your busy schedule 8500 Leesburg Pike, Suite 308 • Vienna, VA 22182 Currently registering for fall semester.

(AP) FILM Spoon’s lead singer Britt Daniel provides much of the enthusiasm behind “ They Want My Soul.” ETHAN MILLER (GETTY IMAGES) Wearing their experience well Spoon’s eighth studio album is also its most polished and diverse ALBUM REVIEW The Austin, Texas-born band Spoon is out with its eighth album, “They Want My Soul.” It’s a lush jangle of guitars, smart lyrics and catchy refrains that continues to set the band apart from, well, other bands you’re not quite sure you’ve heard of. Therein lives the mystery of Spoon. They’re just good enough to make a 20-year career out of music while producing albums and songs you’ve probably overlooked. That may not last much longer thanks to a couple of standout tracks that are certain to be late-summer earworms once Pharrell, Grande to perform at NFL opener Pharrell Williams will perform outside of CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sept. 4 before the Seattle Seahawks play the Greenbay Packers as the NFL begins its 95th season. Ariana Grande will sing the national anthem. It will air on NBC and the NFL Network. Seattle-based band Soundgarden is also scheduled to perform. (AP) “They Want My Soul,” out today, migrates into frequent rotation. “Do You” is the one song you must know about. It asks of the listener “Do you want to get understood?/ Do you want one thing or are you looking for sainthood?” It has a great pace and is delivered with matching emotion by lead singer Britt Daniel. “Outlier” has a more modern feel with its danceable backbeat and ghostly keyboard echoes. Spoon can do a little bit of everything, and does so on “They Want My Soul.” Their electrifying presence translates to an energetic stage show, which made them a crowd favorite at this year’s Shaky Knees Festival. To sound this fresh after two decades of work speaks to the band’s smartness and savvy.

The New York Post reported on Monday that the hotel says it will refund the fine if the review is taken down.
