In a series of rapid-fire questions, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Dry asked whether McDonnell denied key facts about his relationship with businessman Jonnie Williams Sr. Did McDonnell deny that he knew that Williams paid $15,000 for his daughter’s wedding? “No,” McDonnell replied. “[Coach Thompson] brought me to Georgetown as a boy and helped me to grow as a man.” PATRICK EWING, showing his appreciation for Coach John Thompson Jr. by joining David Falk to donate $3.3 million toward the construction of an athletic center at Georgetown that will bear Thompson’s name. Ewing wore No. 33 at Georgetown and in the NBA, hence the amount. Did he deny that he loaned $50,000 to the family in 2011? “No,” McDonnell said. How about that he personally negotiated $70,000 in loans from Williams in 2012? Or accepted golf outings and equipment? Or drove his Ferrari? “No,” McDonnell answered repeatedly. The sharp questions hinted at the high stakes. The government’s case is expected to hinge on how well McDonnell explains why he and his wife accepted those gifts and what he did for Williams. In a handful of instances, Ex-Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell leaves the courthouse Monday with daughter Cailin Young. McDonnell testified it was his wife, Maureen, who handled key details of the couple’s interactions with Williams, saying at one point she “made a lot of decisions.” He also acknowledged, under questioning from his wife’s attorney before the cross-examination began, that Maureen had sought mental health treatment in 2012 and taken medication.

(TWP) PETE MULLER (PRIME FOR THE WASHINGTON POST) WASHINGTONPOST.COM WORLDVIEWS Lungi International Airport in Sierra Leone sits empty Monday after most airlines canceled flights to the country. Ebola travel bans slow relief effort Meant to contain the virus, flight cancellations could stop help from arriving FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden was supposed to fly to West Africa on Monday to gauge the effects of the world’s worst Ebola outbreak. Then his flight was canceled. Brussels Airlines had to halt flights to the affected region after Senegal’s refusal this weekend to allow the carrier to touch down in Dakar for crew changes. Senegal was sending a clear signal that it wanted nothing to do with flights going to Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone, where the outbreak rages on. This move was just the latest by a growing wave of countries and airlines that appear to want to stave off the Ebola threat by stopping travel in and out of places confronting the virus. Frieden, along with other U.S. officials, scrambled to jump on one of the few remaining options — a Delta flight that arrived Sunday, said Jeremy Konyndyk, director of the USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, who was part of the mad dash. The increasing cancellations and border closures have alarmed public health officials worldwide. They’ve also frightened residents in the affected countries who fear they may be trapped within their borders — and worry about economic fallout from their dwindling access to the outside world. “Yes, we understand it. But on the other hand, it’s making the job a whole lot harder.” DAVID NABARRO, leader of the WHO’s Ebola response effort, on travel restrictions to affected areas The World Health Organization warned Monday that these curbs make moving in medical supplies and personnel more difficult. “Yes, we understand it,” said David Nabarro, who is leading the WHO’s Ebola response effort, referring to the restrictions placed by regional countries. “But on the other hand, it’s making the job a whole lot harder.” In Sierra Leone, just two commercial airliners — Royal Air Maroc and Air France — still serve Lungi International Airport. Air France is under pressure from a crew union to stop its flights because some staff are worried about being exposed to the virus. Borders are being closed, too. South Africa banned travelers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Senegal closed its border with Guinea. Chad closed its border with Nigeria. In Freetown, Sierra Leone, uncertainty has fueled rumors. The few remaining flights are booked solid. Residents who might otherwise stick around are pondering jumping on a plane just so they are not stuck if the airport goes silent. TODD C. FRANKEL (THE WASHINGTON POST) British rapper’s ties to jihad under scrutiny MIDEAST It’s still unclear who the masked Islamic State jihadist depicted in video footage killing American journalist James Foley is. Over the past few days, British tabloids have published a great deal of speculation on the identity of the killer, dubbed “Jihadi John.” The leading theory is that he may be Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, an Egyptian-British rapper who grew up in London. Bary, whose nickname as an artist was L Jinny, has been in Syria since at least last year. He earned notoriety this month when a slew of grisly images published on Twitter by foreign jihadists in Syria included one of him holding aloft the severed head of a man. Now among the legion of foreign fighters drawn to Syria by the lure of the extremist Islamic State, Bary is one of a large cast of jihadists well known on social media. Bary is thought to belong to a trio of British jihadists referred to as “the Beatles” by former hostages. The Islamic State loves to display its internationalism online. The prevalence of such characters in the Islamic State is a sign of the organization’s ability to attract disaffected youths in Europe and elsewhere who are seduced by its rhetoric of violence and spiritual redemption.

Streaming has a piracy problem Even Netflix is falling prey to online thieves, and execs are taking notice MEDIA For all the ways Netflix has transformed entertainment, it’s just as helpless as its old-school TV rivals when it comes to stopping the online theft of its shows. As recently as last week, “Orange Is the New Black,” Netflix’s hit series about a women’s prison, was the second-most-pirated TV show in the world on a daily basis after HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” according to CEG TEK, a data service that tracks online piracy. The show was downloaded — mostly illegally — about 60 million times in the first six months of this year, more than the number of Netflix’s total users, according to Internet data research firm Tru Optik. Online viewers are rampantly sharing files of the stolen videos, bypassing payments to cable firms and broadcast networks $100M $50K The amount the economic losses facing Napa Valley could exceed, David Oppenheimer, a seismologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif., told The Wall Street Journal. The amount that Tyler Paradise, general manager of Cult 24 wine bar in Napa, told Reuters he estimates his business lost. Winemakers were still calculating the damage on Sunday. that rely on viewers to watch ads. But the fact that Netflix shows are also being voraciously downloaded illegally renews industry worries that there are no clear solutions to piracy. Entertainment executives had hoped Internet-based services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime would persuade those watching pirated videos online to begin paying or subscribing legally — much the way music lovers embraced iTunes, even if they had grown up illegally downloading files on Napster. But even Netflix, which at $8 to $9 per month for a streaming-only plan costs a fraction of a typical cable bill, may not be able to curb online theft. Pirating — often called “torrenting” — has become significantly easier in recent years, and analysts say that younger Internet users are getting used to the idea of watching movies and TV shows for free. Analysts say hundreds of millions of dollars are being stolen with these unauthorized downloads of video, music and book files through pirate sites such as the Pirate Bay. Netflix sees piracy as one of “The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally, but by giving good options.” TED SARANDOS, Netflix chief content officer, in an interview with Stuff.tv in May 2013 its biggest challenges. “It’s so hard to fight against it,” chief executive Reed Hastings said in July. “It’s not too bad in the U.S., but in markets around the world it could continue to grow.” Even with the sharp rise in Netflix’s subscriber numbers in recent years, piracy rates are up. One-quarter of Internet users around the world have illegally downloaded content, Jon Nicolini, chief technology officer at CEG TEK, said. It’s still too early to discount the possibility that services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus will ultimately dampen piracy, said Ernesto Vandersar, co-founder of Torrent Freak, a website and blog focused on copyright and piracy. He notes that most people who download files illegally also tend to be the biggest consumers of media overall. Those who download music illegally spend 30 percent more on legal copies of songs and albums, according to the American Assembly report. In other words, these are people with a bottomless appetite for media. “Netflix has a decent product and plenty of titles, but not everything,” Vandersar said. “And that’s what will make people feel like they need to pirate.” CECILIA KANG (THE WASHINGTON POST) Pakistan protest leader gives prime minister two days to resign; consequences of non-compliance unclear French PM dissolves government over economic policy squabbles sports A rare feat for Maryland’s coaching staff Terrapins only college football team that has 3 minority coordinators MARYLAND TERPS Andre Powell was always determined to coach at the highest level, to be a head coach. But sometime in the 1990s, his goals gave way to a singular purpose: to become the best coach and recruiter he could possibly be, wherever he was. He started as a student assistant at Indiana in 1988 and made eight stops before joining Randy Edsall’s staff as a running backs coach at Maryland in 2011. The following season, Powell became the team’s special teams coordinator. It was his third time holding that title, yet it also marked a rarity. With Powell joining offensive coordinator Mike Locksley and defensive coordinator Brian Stewart, Maryland had three minority coordinators in 2012 — and two years later the trio is still together. Maryland enters TUESDAY | 08.26.2014 | EXPRESS | 11 THREE POINTERS Hot teams since break The Nationals entered Monday with an eightgame lead in the NL East — having won 12 of their past 13. Here are a few other teams that have also made a run since the All-Star break. JONATHAN NEWTON (THE WASHINGTON POST) JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS) this season as the only school in Division I to hold that distinction. “Thinking back to 15 to 20 years ago, when I was beginning to coach, I don’t even remember black coordinators. I’m sure there were a few. I wasn’t aware of them,” Powell said. “I just think that things are changing. I think some of the stereotype’s lifted, and people see that you need to just find the best that you can hire.” A report released last month by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport found that 15 of the 125 FBS head coaches were minorities in 2013. That number is 14 heading into this season — and alongside Texas, Vanderbilt and Tulane, Maryland is one of four schools in the country to have three minorities in the top four positions on staff. The Rooney Rule, an NFL policy that requires teams to interview minorities for head coaching positions, doesn’t exist in the NCAA. According to the NCAA’s website, Division I 3 Los Angeles Angels Record: 20-15 since break Mike Locksley is one of three Terps coordinators who is African-American. The Angels’ team ERA was 3.84 in the first half, but it’s dropped to 2.93 since. The loss of Garrett Richards (knee) will test the staff. Stewart’s take The fact that Maryland has three minority coordinators is not lost on defensive coordinator Brian Stewart, although he said it’s not discussed among the staff. “I know that I have to do well if other African-Americans want to have that opportunity,” he said. “If you’re a coach — white, black or Hispanic — if you have an opportunity, take advantage of that opportunity.” (THE WASHINGTON POST) athletic directors adopted similar hiring guidelines in 2008, although that practice is voluntary. Locksley said Maryland’s coordinator staff is a reflection on Edsall as a person — and as a coach looking to fill his staff with the best-fitting candidates. For Powell, there have been some schools in his past that were afraid of “black leadership,” he said, but Maryland hasn’t been one of them. It’s the most diverse staff he’s ever been on, which in his mind is both a point of pride and a sign of progress. “I think in the past, there’s been some guys across the country that were probably the best guy available for coordinator jobs and they were passed over because some of the stereotypes or some of the backlash that could’ve taken place,” Powell said. “I think head coaches are more comfortable with that idea now.” ROMAN STUBBS (THE WASHINGTON POST) 2 Tampa Bay Rays Record: 20-13 The Rays traded away ace David Price on July 31, yet they somehow have the best team ERA (2.28) since the All-Star break. 1 Kansas City Royals Record: 24-11 The AL Central leaders are 9-0-1 in their past 10 series.

Gruden, therefore, is considering sending out the starting offense for some limited action Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. JOSEPH WHITE (AP) TENNIS LARRY FRENCH (GETTY IMAGES) Murray grits to U.S. Open 1st-round win The U.S. Open began Monday in steamy conditions. Kirk Cousins has completed 35 of 54 passes for 370 yards, four touchdowns and one interception this preseason. Are Redskins hesitant to trade Cousins now? REDSKINS It wasn’t immediately clear if the Rams planned to engage the Redskins in trade talks regarding quarterback Kirk Cousins. But if they do, it’s believed Washington brass would be hesitant to part with the third-year backup because of Robert Griffin III’s preseason struggles, according to a person close to the situation. The Rams learned on Sunday that quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the entire season with a torn ACL in his left knee. St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher told reporters Sunday that the team hadn’t yet begun investigating options regarding acquiring another possible starting Murray escapes: Andy Murray gritted his way through cramps to beat Robin Haase 6-3, 7-6 (6), 1-6, 7-5. He started cramping in the back of his shoulder early in the third set, then it spread to his forearm. Murray reached for his hamstring in the middle of one rally and still won the point. Venus bugged: Not until three attendants came onto the court to help did Venus Williams escape a bee that wanted to land on her racket. “The bee was a challenge,” she said after beating Kimiko Date-Krumm 2-6, 6-3, 6-3. Halep challenged: Secondranked Simona Halep needed to rally from a set down to beat a young American making her Grand Slam debut. The Romanian won 6-7 (2), 6-1, 6-2 over 20-year-old Danielle Rose Collins. As a sophomore at Virginia, an unseeded Collins won the NCAA title to earn a wild card into the U.S. Open. Quite a temper: Nick Kyrgios was one outburst away from default in a victory against Mikhail Youzhny. Kyrgios slammed a ball out of the court to earn his first code violation in the second set. He got two more when he uttered audible obscenities in the third and fourth sets. Another would have resulted in an automatic default. (AP) quarterback. But he added, “It doesn’t mean to say that we won’t, but we haven’t done it at this point.” This preseason, Cousins has completed nearly 65 percent of his passes for 370 yards, four touchdowns and one interception while sporting a 101.6 passer rating. One person close to the situation thought it unlikely that Washington would trade Cousins with Griffin struggling as he tries to learn coach Jay Gruden’s system and develop into a pocket passer. Griffin has completed 13 of 20 passes for 141 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions while sporting a 46.0 passer rating. Gruden has said that the team doesn’t have a quarterback controversy and continues to firmly state that Griffin is his starter. However, Gruden and the team’s decision makers think highly of Cousins. Last week, Gruden said the Redskins didn’t pull the trigger on a trade this offseason because they value Cousins as an insurance policy for Griffin. “He’s a good quarterback, and you don’t want to let quarterbacks out of your building if you don’t have to,” Gruden said. “Obviously there’s circumstances that could change that, but right now we’re happy with the quarterbacks that we have, and there’s no reason to change.” MIKE JONES AND MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST) Majors won by Tiger Woods in the four years Sean Foley was his swing coach. Woods said on his website Monday he will no longer work with Foley, the Canadian whom he hired when his game was at its low point following the upheaval with his marriage. The announcement came one day after another Foley pupil, Hunter Mahan, won The Barclays. “I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship,” Woods said.

Just place the 2-pound, adjustable workspace on any table — or counter or dresser — and you can easily prop up your laptop and coffee to elbow height. (There’s even a cup holder!) It’s small and slender enough to fit into a bag inconspicuously, but still sturdy enough that we didn’t worry our computer would come crashing down as we typed. But remember: Its weight limit is just 10 pounds. (EXPRESS) CrossFit Old Town owner Jerry Hill, center, can’t believe that he’s becoming a pro athlete at 47. He’s the second-oldest player in the new grid league. Strength in numbers The DC Brawlers aim to rule the grid in a new national pro fitness league SPORTS Everyone faces challenges at work. But only a few folks have a job description like this: “You stand on your left leg, squat all the way down, then come out explosively and jump over a 20-inch hurdle and land with control.” That’s Christy Adkins, a 29-year-old nurse and CrossFit coach, describing an exercise she’d just encountered. And it’s one she’d better master soon — along with the heavy lifts, rope climbs, handstand pushups and other masochistic moves that make up “grid,” a new sport. Adkins is on the DC Brawlers, one of eight teams kicking off the National Pro Grid League’s inaugural season. The Brawlers boast a perfect record, having won their Saturday debut against the Phoenix Rise. They’ll try to keep the streak alive tonight at the Patriot Center, when they face off against the Philadelphia Founders in their Ready for the grid? DC Brawlers coach Justin Cotler shares three of the team’s workouts. V.H. Conditioning. Four rounds for time: 1 shuttle run (20 feet out and back, 40 feet out and back, 60 feet out and back, 80 feet out and back), then 10 burpee over box jumps (24-inch box for women/30-inch box for men). Strength. Three rounds: Max reps, hang power snatch (115 pounds for women/175 pounds for men), with 1 minute rest between rounds. Gymnastics. As many reps as possible: 1 minute of handstand pushups, then rest 1 minute; 2 minutes of handstand pushups at a 5-inch deficit, then rest 2 minutes; 3 minutes of handstand pushups at a 10-inch deficit. first home game. Just like in a grid match, everything has been happening quickly. The team was announced in April. The teammates met for the first time earlier this month in Las Vegas, where they held a 12-day training camp. And there are just two home games before quarterfinals start in late September, which doesn’t give potential spectators much time to figure out what’s going on. Here’s the gist: A match is 11 races on a four-quadrant grid. Who plays is dictated by the various exercises that make up each race — “there truly isn’t one person who is going to be the best at everything,” Adkins says. Of the starting lineup of five men and five women, one of each gender must be 40 or older. “It’s a fun opportunity to play with the young bucks,” says Jerry Hill, owner of CrossFit Old Town, who explains that “I’m not just 40 “I thrive on competition,” says Christy Adkins, one of two locals on the DC Brawlers’ team roster. plus. I’m 40 plus 7.” He’s also modest — he won the 2014 CrossFit Games in the men 45-49 category. Adkins and Hill are the only locals on the Brawlers’ roster, since athletes were recruited from around the world for the league. But they’re expecting Washingtonians to rally behind the Brawlers, both because of D.C.’s thriving CrossFit community and its devoted sports fans. “Not everyone who goes to a baseball stadium is a baseball player,” Hill says. And not everyone can do that single-leg squat thing either.

I’ve been seeing a great man for three months. The problem is his live-in exgirlfriend. She’s on disability and has no income to move (although she has a boyfriend who often stays there as well). He also says she has attempted suicide. I think she’s a master manipulator. She calls to ask for money or errands, and I’ve caught her going through my bag! My friends say get out, he won’t change. But we care for each other. TORN AND CONFUSED Your friends don’t think he wants to change — but do you? I get that there might be all kinds of headaches in kicking her out, especially given a possible psychiatric history, but that’s a moot point. We’re not debating his moral character here, or whether he’s doing this out of empathy, shadiness, laziness or being bamboozled. What matters is where he prioritizes your relationship in this mess. How bothered is he by the fact that he’s running a free bed-and-breakfast for his ex and her new lover? If you really want to have hope for this relationship, you need to see energy, motivation and a specific game plan. In the absence of that, I’m with your friends.

ANDREA BONIOR | BAGGAGE CHECK That’s the alarm, not wedding bells Q. A bunch of friends just got engaged and now my boyfriend is thinking about marriage. I like being with him, but I’m nowhere near ready. He makes hints about weddings and I’m like “NOO!” Can I tell him to slow down without hurting our relationship? NOT READY It might hurt your relationship, but that doesn’t mean that the alternative — not speaking up at all — is any better. If there’s a fundamental mismatch in terms of timelines or commitment levels, he deserves to know (as begging back a DJ deposit on a canceled wedding reception is not fun). Bring the issue up in a comfortable, contextual way as a first step. You might use humor (“I see you getting gaga over boutonnieres, but you know I’m not ready for wedding planning — how about I let you wear a tux to Noodles & Company instead?”) or a more serious sit-down (“I want to talk about us, because I feel sometimes you’re on a faster path than I am. What are your thoughts?”) He deserves honesty and a willingness for you to listen; you deserve the same from him.

Bulking up with gyms A Sport & Health deal has created D.C.’s largest fitness empire FACILITIES As teens growing up in Northern Virginia, brothers Kirk and John Galiani used to sneak into the Sport & Health in Tysons Corner to lift weights and play basketball. Thirty years later — after building up an impressive fitness industry résumé that includes a stint as owners of Gold’s Gym International — the duo is ready to play a whole lot more. Their company US Fitness (which operates the Crunch and Onelife gym brands in D.C. and Virginia) just acquired the 23-location Sport & Health chain. “We’ve been brainstorming ways to make them even better,” Kirk says.

The sale won’t affect the December opening of the chain’s forthcoming location in Rockville’s Pike & Rose development, says Mark Fisher, who was CEO of Sport & Health and is now CEO of US Fitness. He views the luxurious, 32,000-square-foot club as a sign of what’s to come for the newly bulked-up company. “We’re putting the best of what we have in that location. It’s the tip of the iceberg,” Fisher says. Each of US Fitness’ three brands will maintain its own identity — upscale Sport & Health, boutique-y Crunch and affordable Onelife (which will soon open an Alexandria location) — Kirk says.
