Potheads Free to Concentrate Once Again on Just Snacking The “MILE 420” sign near Stratton, Colo., on Interstate 70, was stolen for the last time sometime in the last year, said Colorado Department of Transportation officials. At least they hope so. The department replaced “420,” which has long been associated with marijuana, with “419.99” on the sign to deter thieves from taking it again. Colorado recently legalized recreational marijuana. (AP) PETS

The state of emergency could last days, at least. Gov. Earl Tomblin said Sunday that tests were encouraging, but he didn’t give a timetable for when people might be able to use water again. (AP)

Dry Branch, W.Va. For Bonnie Wireman, the plastic bag covering her kitchen faucet is a reminder that she can’t drink the water after a coal processing chemical leaked into the area’s water supply. The widow of a coal miner, Wireman, 81, is frustrated about the chemical spill that’s deprived 300,000 West Virginians of clean tap water for four days: “I’m really angry.” But as quickly as she said it, she wanted to make one thing clear: She didn’t blame the coal or chemical industries for the spill. “I hope this doesn’t hurt coal,” Wireman said. “Too many West Virginians depend on coal and chemicals. We need those jobs.”

And that’s the dilemma for many West Virginians: The industries provide thousands of good-paying jobs but also pose risks for the communities surrounding them, such as the chemical spill or coal-mine disasters. The current emergency began Thursday after a foaming agent used in coal processing escaped from a plant in

Charleston and seeped into the Elk River. Since then, residents have been ordered to not use tap water for anything but flushing toilets. “You won’t find many people in these parts who are against these industries,” said Wireman’s son, Danny Scott, 59. “But we have to do a better job of regulating them.”

With water tainted by chemical leak, locals wonder: Is it worth it?

Mirroring problems with the federal health-care website, people around the nation attempting to navigate the Spanish version have discovered their own set of difficulties. The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics say they must have been computer-generated — the name of the site itself can literally be read “for the caution of health.” The issues with the site underscore the halting efforts across the nation to get Spanish speakers enrolled

The website is “not all written in Spanish. It’s written in Spanglish, so we end up having to translate it for them.” — ADRIAN MADRIZ, A HEALTH-CARE NAVIGATOR IN MIAMI

under the federal health-care law. Critics say that as a result of various problems, including those related to the website, many people whom the law was designed to help have been left out of the first wave of coverage. “Spanish speakers are typically the

ones who need to sign up for health insurance,” said Veronica Plaza, a professor who teaches medical Spanish at the University of New Mexico. “They are the ones who could use the support.” Federal officials say they have been working to make the site better and plan further improvements soon. In New Mexico, the state with the nation’s highest percentage of Latino residents and where more than 20 percent of the state’s population goes without health insurance, fewer than 1,000 people total signed up for coverage in October and November. Many blame at least some of the enrollment problems on the trouble-plagued site. K E L L I K E N N E DY A N D RUSSELL CONTRER AS (AP)

Over the years, he’s worked in some of those places, and knows about the risks and rewards. “You made enough to support your family,” Brown said. “But you also see what it’s done to the environment. People stay away from fishing in rivers and streams near chemical plants. … You know better. You just know.” MITCH WEISS AND BRENDAN FARRINGTON (AP)

POLITICAL FALLOUT

Everyone’s Talking About Christie Politicians took to the Sunday talk shows to opine about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the traffic scandal: Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Christie, above, could move past the scandal and still win support in the 2016 presidential primary race. John Wisniewski, a New Jersey Democrat leading an investigation into the scandal, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Christie didn’t have to know about the lane closures for them to be a crime. Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani said on ABC’s “This Week” that he found Christie’s explanation “pretty darn credible.” Mark Sokolich, the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., whose town was affected, said he wanted to believe Christie’s assertion but was having a tough time buying it.

In Brief

Iran has agreed to limit uranium enrichment and to open its nuclear program to daily inspection by international experts starting Jan. 20, setting the clock running on a sixmonth deadline for a final nuclear agreement, officials said Sunday. In exchange, the Islamic Republic will get a relaxation of the financial sanctions that have been crippling its economy. The announcement that Iran and six world powers had agreed on the plan for implementing an interim agreement came first from Iranian officials and was confirmed elsewhere. Some U.S. lawmakers have been leery of the agreement, calling for tougher sanctions rather than any loosening of controls. Iran’s official IRNA news agen-

Metro modifies how riders add money to their SmarTrip cards

Future Fares Metro awarded a $184 million contract to replace the existing fare collection systems for its rail, bus and parking facilities to Accenture last week. The new system will enable payment through chip-enabled credit cards, federal government ID cards and mobile phones. A pilot program will begin later this year, according to the transit agency. (E XPRESS)

Washington Metro says reloading a SmarTrip card aboard a bus is easier now. The transit agency has made a couple of changes to the Metrobus fareboxes that it says will help expedite the process of reloading SmarTrip cards and make the boarding process a little faster. Starting today, riders adding value to a SmarTrip card aboard a bus will have to make two “taps” to complete the process compared

to three taps previously. “On the fi rst tap, passengers can add value. On the second tap, the farebox will add the value to the card and deduct the bus fare

in one step,” Metro said in a news release announcing the change. Metrobus riders will also notice a new tone will sound at the farebox when their SmarTrip card has less than $1.60 in stored value. Metro says it hopes the warning tone will serve as a reminder to add value to the card. But to save time, Metro encourages riders to reload your SmarTrip at Metrorail stations, regional transit stores or some retail locations. The transit agency is considering installing off-board SmarTrip Recharge Stations at some bus stops to reduce delays caused by on-board card loadings. LUZ L A ZO (THE WASHINGTON POST )

O’Malley Is Pressed on Health Site

Md. officials were warned of health exchange’s problems Washington

Gov. Martin O’Malley acknowledged to a national television audience Sunday that Maryland had “squibbed the kickoff” of its online health-insurance exchange but predicted the state would still meet a March enrollment goal. O’Malley was the lead guest on CNN’s “State of the Union,” where he was billed as “a possible presidential party pick” for 2016. He faced some tough questions from host Candy Crowley about the rollout of Maryland’s exchange, which she described as “disastrous by most accounts.” A Washington Post investigation found that more than a year before

the state launched its exchange, senior state officials failed to heed warnings that no one was ultimately accountable for the project and that the state lacked a plausible plan for how it would be ready by Oct. 1. Over the following months, as political leaders continued to proclaim that the state’s exchange would be a national model, the system went through three different project managers, the feuding between contractors hired to build the online exchange devolved into lawsuits and key people quit. The repeated warnings culminated days before the launch, with one from contractors testing the website that said it was “extremely unstable” and another from an outside consultant that urged state officials not to let residents enroll in health plans because there was “no clear picture” of what would happen when the exchange would turn on.

Within moments of its Oct. 1 launch, the site crashed in a calamitous debut that was supposed to be a c row n i ng moment for Maryland officials who had embraced the Affordable Care O’Malley Act and pledged to build a staterun exchange that would be unparalleled. Instead, by the next morning only four people had signed up using the website — and amazed that anyone had gotten through successfully, state officials contacted each of them to make sure they were real. “Were you asleep at the switch?” Crowley asked O’Malley on Sunday. “Oh no, this complex IT challenge had ups and downs every step of the way,” O’Malley responded. “This was a very complicated

endeavor, but the bottom line is that we are more than halfway to our enrollment goal.” The state has said it would like to enroll 150,000 people in private plans through the exchange by the end of March and another 110,000 through Medicaid. Enrollment through Medicaid has exceeded expectations, but only 20,358 people had selected private plans as of Friday. “I think we are going to make our goal,” O’Malley told Crowley, referring to the combined target of 260,000. O’Malley suggested that the state has no plans to switch to the federal exchange before open enrollment ends in March, as some Democratic lawmakers have suggested. “The problem is, there was no assurance at that time that the federal website was going to work any better … and it didn’t,” O’Malley said.

Cover Story No Wonder We Can’t Keep Up Last week, the world’s gadget makers and tech swamis gathered at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to celebrate the latest gizmonic advances. Among them were increasingly sophisticated smartphone apps:

Smarter Phones, Even More Groans It’s not just seniors who are mystified by increasingly powerful devices Technology If Frank Washington has told his mother once he has told her a thousand times: Do not change the account passwords on your iPhone. His mother called the other day. She had a password problem. “I thought we agreed you would keep the password the same,” Washington said he told her. “But the phone,” his mother insisted, “asked me to change it.” Her befuddlement was partly his fault. Washington had succumbed to his 69-year-old mother’s pleas for an iPhone, buying her one for Christmas. Now, he’d become tech support. Sixty two percent of Americans

now own a smartphone, a Gallup poll shows. But as the devices get more sophisticated, there are hordes of users who can barely keep up. For many, smartphones are confounding and intimidating, and they often wind up just using them as expensive cameras that can make calls — if they don’t hide the phone icon by accident. And lest anyone think the problems are limited to seniors, consider the example of a 41-year-old interior designer in Montgomery County, Md., who is so embarrassed at her smartphone ineptitude that she would only allow her first name — Jennifer — to be used in explaining the repeated trouble she once had.

“I couldn’t get the camera flipped around so it would take a picture of an object and not myself,” Jennifer said. There were a lot of pictures of Jennifer. “Finally a client said, ‘Here let me help you.’ ” While there are apparently no studies that quantify gadget incompetence or whether smartphones are more mystifying than, say, programming a VCR, revealing hints turn up in usage stats. Some 81 percent of cellphone users send text messages — among the easiest functions — but only half download apps and read or send email. Some of the most highly touted smartphone innovations are barely used at all. A 2012 poll showed that just 5 percent of Americans used their smartphones to show codes for movie admission or to get on an airplane. Whether that’s

With Complexity Comes Confusion The other problem with smartphones is that for many users they are way more powerful than need be, and with them comes added complexity, which can be bewildering and even a turnoff. Kyle O’Donnell, a 25-yearold Ph.D. student in economics at George Mason University, was startled recently by his iPhone. “I found out the other day that I could do voice control with it,” he said. “You can do directions or whatever just by saying stuff. I didn’t know I could do that. I actually don’t want to do that, and I don’t know how to do that. It seems more confusing to do it that way.” (T WP)

because of a lack of interest or lack of knowhow (or both) is not entirely clear, but experts say they see smartphone obliviousness at all ages and for all kinds of reasons. Digital Immigrants have the toughest time. They didn’t grow up with computers or tablets. But lately, they’ve gotten Androids or iPhones, and for them, there is nothing intuitive at all about manipulating data with their fingers.

“Every shift someone will roll their eyes and say ‘You’re not gonna believe what this person did.’ ” — STEPHEN H ACKE T T, WHO WROTE “BARTENDING: MEMOIRS OF AN APPLE GENIUS,” SAID THE COMPANY TEACHES ITS EMPLOYEES TO BE EXTREMELY EMPATHETIC TO USERS NO MATTER HOW SIMPLE OR SILLY THEIR PROBLEMS MIGHT SEEM.

According to Jeff Johnson, a longtime usability consultant, those users get lost in part because designers are dreaming up software without any industry-wide guidelines for usability or consistency, like, say, a washing machine. As evidence, he read off several design principles from the Android developer’s website: “Enchant me, simplify my life, make me amazing.” “Whatever happened to usability?” he marveled. “Make me amazing. What does that even mean?” Confusion points smartphone users in many directions. For iPhone owners, they can turn to the Genius Bar at Apple stores, where appointments, owing to the many desperate souls who need them, often must be made several days in advance. Those who don’t turn to the pros for help often seek succor from family and friends, a form of bonding between generations built around questions such as, “Why doesn’t my phone get email anymore?” This reporter recently helped his father return Gmail to his smartphone, an over-the-phone process that took approximately 22 minutes that he will never get back.

49ers Move on to a Familiar Place Kaepernick accounts for two touchdowns in win over Panthers

NFC Championship 49ERS AT SEAHAWKS 6:30 P.M. Sunday | FOX

NFL Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers are headed to the NFC championship game once again — to face a familiar opponent in a place where they’ve struggled.

Last meeting: 49ers won 19-17 on Dec. 8 in San Francisco. But the Seahawks have won the past two meetings with the 49ers in Seattle by a combined score of 71-16.

Kaepernick threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score as the 49ers shut down Cam Newton and defeated the Carolina Panthers 23-10 on Sunday to advance to the NFC title game for the third straight season. Kaepernick completed 15 of 28 passes for 196 yards, avenging his worst statistical performance of the season two months ago against the Panthers. Anquan Boldin had eight catches for 136 yards and Frank Gore ran for 84 yards on 17 carries for the

turyLink Field in December 2012. Kaepernick had all sorts of trouble at Seattle a few months ago. The 49ers were missing receiver Michael Crabtree in that lopsided loss. “We’re a different team than

we were the first time we played them up there. We have a lot of key playmakers back and we’re ready to go,” Kaepernick said. The 49ers held Newton in check, intercepting him twice and sacking him five times while stop-

Home of WR Jackson Burglarized NFL Philadelphia police say someone broke into a home belonging to Eagles star receiver DeSean Jackson and stole a handgun and more than $250,000 in cash and jewelry. Investigators said Saturday the burglary happened sometime earlier in the week at Jackson’s home in South Philadelphia, not far from the team’s practice facility. Police say the cash and jewelry were taken from a safe. A silver 9mm handgun is also missing. No arrests have been made. A police spokeswoman says the investigation is ongoing. Jackson was the Eagles’ leading receiver this season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns. He signed a five-year, $51 million contract before the 2012 season. (AP)

Olympics The names on the U.S. Olympic figure skating team were still supposed to be a secret, so Ashley Wagner slipped under the stands to cry. Hours after a performance she described as a “tearful little wimp out on the ice,” the two-time national champion was picked to go to the Sochi Games. The West Potomac graduate finished a distant fourth at the U.S. Championships on Saturday night, and only three American women make the Olympics. But this event isn’t the only criteria U.S. Figure Skating takes into account. “If you look at Ashley Wagner’s record and performance, she’s got the top credentials of any of our female athletes,” said the organization’s president, Patricia St. Peter. And so the third-place finisher, Mirai Nagasu, was passed over Sunday. Fifteen-year-old Polina Edmunds, who was second,

was selected even though she has never competed in an international senior event. Nagasu has some pretty impressive credentials herself — she was fourth at the 2010 Games as a 16-year-old. But U.S. Figure Skating’s selection guidelines consider

only the past year, and Nagasu had mostly struggled until a resurgent performance at nationals. The organization does take into account the technical difficulty of skaters’ programs, and that might have been what clinched the preternaturally poised Edmunds’ spot

on the team. “Even though it is my senior debut, I think I am senior-level, so it doesn’t really matter if it’s a debut or not,” she said. The one no-brainer was Gracie Gold, who won her first U.S. title Saturday in a runaway. Wagner finished fifth at the world championships and won the bronze medal at the Grand Prix Final, the next most important events in the selection criteria after this year’s nationals. “I’m happy that my federation was able to see beyond one bad skate,” she said through tears once the announcement became official. But, oh, was it a bad one. Wagner fell twice and failed to cleanly land two other triple jumps in Saturday’s long program. Afterward, she mouthed, “I’m sorry” to her mother. “I was overwhelmed from the big lights and the big show,” she said. Wagner insists that won’t happen again in Sochi, with the pressure off by making the Olympic team. “I’m not that skater that everyone saw last night,” Wagner said. “I’m a fierce competitor. I’m tough as nails.” R ACHEL COHEN (AP)

Caps Lose to NHL’s Worst Team Capitals The Capitals were on the losing side of a lackluster game, as the Sabres’ Cody Hodgson scored the only goal in the shootout in Buffalo’s 2-1 win Sunday. Jason Chimera scored in the openi ng per iod, a nd Philipp Grubauer had 30 saves for the Capitals, who have lost five of seven. Tyler Ennis scored in the first period, and Ryan Miller made 28 saves for the Sabres, whose 11-game road skid was the second-longest in club history, behind a 12-game streak in the 2011-12 season.

Wagner Falls Into Olympic Spot

Capitals goalie Philipp Grubauer had 30 saves in Sunday’s loss to the Sabres.

The Sabres put the puck in the net twice in the first period — once for themselves and once for the Capitals. Brian Flynn, trying to

stop a pass from Chimera to Marcus Johansson, got his stick on the puck and directed it past his own goalie to give Washington the early lead. Chimera was given credit for the goal. Ennis tied it late in the period on a power play when he gathered a loose puck in front of the crease and backhanded it in. The Sabres, sitting at the bottom of the NHL standings with by far the fewest goals scored in the league, are trying to steady themselves during a period of upheaval. Sunday’s game was the second under new general manager Tim Murphy and the 24th under interim coach Ted Nolan. JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

“There’s no exact science. What’s right

Chief financial officer at Canvas, a Reston, Va., mobile app developer for businesses MARC RUBIN was in college when he began working part time in the internal audit department at London Fog. After he graduated, he was later promoted to director. He moved to Black & Decker, where, as a senior auditor, he hit a turning point working with a vendor that was a tech startup. He knew then that he wanted to be part of a startup. He began building the financial operations for a series of venture-backed tech companies, now including Canvas. What are some common mistakes you’ve seen startups make?

I’ve seen startups that are so conserva-

tive with every dollar they have that they miss the opportunity. ... Other startups get the $1 million, and they immediately hire 20 people and spend $150,000 each month on advertising. They weren’t ready to do that, and they burn through their cash in a matter of months. … There’s no exact science. What’s right for one company isn’t right for another company. It’s about knowing the right levers to pull and where to invest that money. … You have to understand what has to be done and what you need to do with the money coming in. How do you decide which startups you work with?

It’s really about the people. There has to be a really good connection with the chief executive. If you don’t have that, you won’t enjoy coming to work every day. Then I look at the rest of the team. Who’s there? I look at the competency of the people. Do you believe in

Yes, why would you want to work somewhere where you don’t personally like the people you’ll be spending so much time with? It’s not worth it. There’s too many other opportunities that are good enough. You don’t have to hit a home run every time. Hitting singles, doubles and triples is just as effective. At some of your startups, they were adding 80 people in a year. How do you maintain such rapid growth in a healthy way?

You have to make sure you have the needs identified that you’re hiring for, and making sure it’s a real need for the business. Then going out and finding the right people that will fit those positions and have the ability to grow with those positions. It takes a lot of planning. VANESSA SMALL (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

TRANSFORMING LIVES

TEDDY WOLFF (FOR EXPRESS)

Their New Mission: MBAs Veterans and active-duty troops preparing to transition to civilian life are shifting their focus to business school After four years in the Army, Van Standifer says he finds himself pondering the age-old question: What do I want to be when I grow up? “Military service was something I always wanted to do,” Standifer, 34, says. “But I didn’t want to make a career out of it.” To help him transition from military service to a new career,

the former Army captain with the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team decided to enroll in the fulltime Master of Business Administration program at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business (msb.georgetown.edu). Many vets look to MBA programs as they transition from military service into the next step of their careers, says Shari

Hubert, the associate dean of MBA admissions for Georgetown’s McDonough School. In Standifer’s case, an MBA is a chance to discover what that next step might be. “It’s short enough where you don’t feel like you’re putting your life on hold, but long enough to let you shift gears as you’re Continued on page E4

transitioning out,” he says. Standifer says the internship component of Georgetown’s MBA program was a big help in determining what he wanted to do next. He completed his at an Atlanta-based startup within GE’s Energy Management division last summer. He’s aiming for a job in the energy sector. Business schools say veterans arrive already highly qualified because of the years of leadership skills gained from military training and service. “Military students are some of our best students,” Hubert says. According to a recent survey by Military MBA (militarymba.net), a group that helps service members find MBA programs, military enrollees in MBA programs have nearly doubled from 4.4 percent of all incoming MBA students in 2010 to 8.1 percent in 2012. And among employers, the demand for military vets with an MBA degree is high, says the group’s executive director Greg Eisenbarth. Another survey by the group found that military MBAs reported a 93.5 percent employment rate within a few months of graduation compared with 62 percent employment rates for traditional MBA graduates. “Employers are looking for them,” Eisenbarth says. “They learn leadership from the ground up, at a very young and formative age.” Standifer agrees that he’ll bring something unique to his next job, given his military training. “You

get more responsibility, at a younger age, than most folks do working in industry and the private sector,” he says. At George Mason University (som.gmu.edu), the 18- to 20-month executive MBA has a national defense track that may appeal to vets who want to remain within the defense sector but transition to the private sector. According to J.P. Auffret, director of George Mason’s executive MBA program, between 30 percent and 40 percent of executive MBA program participants are in the military or are military veterans. The executive MBA works well for students with full-time jobs because it lets them take either online classes or a blend of oncampus and online classes. (The online-only program costs less, at $60,700, compared with $76,500 for the online/in-class program.) The program sees a range of students, from those with eight to 10 years of experience to others with decades of military service. “Some are trying to advance within the military. Others are looking to transition in a couple years,” Auffret says. The national defense track includes two stays in D.C. during which students meet for a few days with executives from the Defense Department, other areas of government and the private sector. For James “Mouse” Neumeister, 58, a former Air Force colonel, the degree isn’t a ticket out of government service, but a means of better understanding the private industry that he interacts with.

PLAN AHEAD.

As the number of women in the military increases, grad schools may see the number of female military MBA candidates rise as well. Though there’s little data on the number of female veterans who seek the degree, this has been a small but important group, says Greg Eisenbarth, executive director of Military MBA, a group that helps service members research MBA programs. “Almost all of the schools we work with are intensely interested in getting women officers,” Eisenbarth says. After 13 years in the Air Force, Felicia Blair, 36, just finished the online executive MBA program at George Mason University while working full time at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Though she was one of the only women in her class, she says she’d recommend the program “for anyone.” E.B.

“While I don’t necessarily see myself jumping to private industry anytime soon, almost anything I do involves working with private industry, which builds the systems we use in the Coast Guard,” says Neumeister, who started at the U.S. Coast Guard in 2011 after 30 years of active duty in the Air Force and positions within the Homeland Security Department. Capt. Neville Welch, 43, a Marine Corps finance officer, plans to stay in the military for several years before venturing into the private sector to pursue his CPA and open a financial planning business. He’s getting his MBA from Webster University (webster.edu), one of the largest providers of graduate-level military education in the U.S. More than 7,000 of Webster’s 22,000 students have a military connection, and the program has satellite campuses at military bases across the country, including in the D.C. area. Other business schools in the area are “military-friendly” in different ways. Georgetown is one of many that offer such perks and services as financial assistance, waived application fees, dedicated administrative offices and student groups for veterans and active-duty service members. T hrough t he U. S. Veterans Affairs Department, anyone who has served at least 90 days of active duty since Sept. 10, 2001, can get their full instate tuition and fees covered at public schools, and up to a capped amount ($19,198 for the 2013 academic year) for out-ofstate tuition or private universities. The funding applies to grad programs as well as undergrad. Universities can also participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides additional funds to military personnel with at least 36 months of active-duty service. Under that program, Georgetown provides $7,500 per year for a limited number of military students, which the Veterans Affairs Department then match-

A personal concierge makes a career out of her clients’ to-do lists Jennifer Brickman Rasche, 41 SALARY: $75,000 POSITION: Personal concierge and founder of 25th Hour Concierge (202320-3838, 25hourconcierge.com)

This is The Tuesday health & fitness section in Express XX0164 2x3.5

WHAT SHE DOES: Have things that need to get done but work and family and holidays keep you from doing? That’s what Brickman Rasche does for her clients, so they can focus on work and family and holidays. “One of the beautiful things about this job is there’s no typical day,” Brickman Rasche says. “It’s different

every day.” At an hourly rate of $85, Brickman Rasche ticks off any to-dos her clients need accomplished: call a plumber when a pipe bursts; organize a lifetime of photos; help a client’s tweenage daughter de-clutter a messy room; research how to get a passport for a client’s newly adopted child from another country or shuttle a boxer-mix named Steve to and from doggie daycare. (Yes. All of these tasks did happen.)

four-day workweek for a communications position at the Duke Ellington School in 2006. That meant she had an extra day to fill. She came up with the personal concierge idea to make extra money and, in 2008, posted on a Cleveland Park neighborhood listserv to ask if anybody needed help with anything. One woman responded “YES!” and Brickman Rasche spent half a day each Friday assisting with all kinds of tasks — from cookie-baking projects to interviewing moving companies for a big move to a new home. The seeds for a new career were planted. “A friend suggested to me that I take what I was doing on Fridays and

ahead blow it out to full time,” Brickman Rasche says. “Just hearing somebody else suggest it felt like permission to go in a direction I had never considered going.” Brickman Rasche left the Ellington School in May 2009 and made preparations to launch 25th Hour Concierge — taking small-business classes through the D.C. Public Library, reading a book, “The Concierge Manual,” and even attending a conference for the International Concierge and Lifestyle Management Association (iclma.org) in Glasgow, Scotland. Her first official client came onboard that August. Among other things, he needed help moving to a new home and office while he was away in China. WHO WOULD WANT THIS JOB:

If you are self-motivated, organized and good with time management, this job could suit you well. Most months Brickman Rasche juggles about 10 different clients, and she’s only working 20-25 hours a week. Her client list — as well as workload and salary — could potentially double as the business grows. You have to like helping people, too. “My clients now, they’re not a cause, they’re not a mission, but they need help,” Brickman Rasche says. “It’s so rewarding to feel like you’re making a difference in their lives and to know that you’re reducing their stress levels.” HOW YOU CAN GET THIS JOB:

Just as Brickman Rasche did by advertising on a listserv, you can start by dabbling in the personal concierge realm. There’s even an app for that: TaskRabbit (taskrabbit.com). As a TaskRabbit, once you’ve been screened, you would log on to see what folks need accomplished and what they’re willing to pay. Growing your client base can happen by simply providing quality service. While Brickman Rasche gets some referrals through the ICLMA, most of her business comes from word-of-mouth. Happy clients tell their friends about their personal concierge, and then said friends become happy clients. TRACY KRULIK (FOR EXPRESS)

their face-to-face interview skills, many pay less attention to their phone skills, despite the fact that many interviews start with a call. You should prepare ahead of time. Here are some tips:

Be Prepared Prepare for a phone conversation just as you would for a face-to-face meeting. Have your notes avail-

able for questions you want to ask as well as key points about yourself that you want to make. Keep a pen and paper handy to take notes. Clean up your voicemail greeting. Listen for how it might sound to a prospective employer. Get rid of the cutesy phrases, strange songs, etc. Have someone else call you and report how professional your answering machine sounds. Practice how you sound on the phone. Record yourself and listen or have someone else listen and provide feedback. One executive that I coached always started out strong in his conversations, but near the end he mumbled and talked fast, making him very difficult to understand. He would not have known this without having someone listen to his conversations. Make sure your phone is high quality and is not going to break down during the call. Get dressed up for the call so that you will project a more confident image; some applicants I have worked with have even stood during parts or the entire interview to feel more confident.

During the Actual Call Treat a phone conversation like you would a face-to-face meeting. Start with a positive and pleasant strong voice. If you are the caller, show courtesy by asking if the time is convenient. Ask, “Is this still a good time for you to talk?” Make sure they are prepared for your conversation. You might ask, “Do you have my materials or do you need me to email or fax you any additional information before we get started?” If your call is answered by the employer’s gatekeeper, make sure to be nice to this person. Often, they are in charge of screening the employers’ calls. Learn and use their names when dealing with them, show them respect and be personable yet professional. During the conversation, if it sounds like there are distractions from other people or activities, politely ask them if this is still a good time to talk. You need the interviewer’s full attention to make sure you can put your best foot forward. Take your time when speaking. Be polite and use the interviewer’s

Habits to Hang Up Make sure you have time to talk if you answer the phone. I have seen many people answer their phones as they are rushing off to meetings or lunch and then try to have a serious job conversation. If you don’t have time, allow the employer to leave a message and then call them back when you are in a quiet place and have time to talk. Do not engage in conversations when you are driving. For a job interview, you really need to be able to focus and concentrate. Plus, background noise from traffic, ambulances and such really does not sound professional. Don’t use slang language or nonwords (“huhs,” “yeah,” “ums,” “uhs”). Don’t eat, chew gum or drink. Would you do these things face to face? If not, then don’t do them on the phone. Remember, phone interviews are critical for determining whether you will advance to the next stage in the interview process or for determining whether you get the job. Treat them as professionally as you would a face-to-face meeting. JOYCE E. A. RUSSELL (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

Fans curious to find out if there’s any drama this season on “The Bachelor,” the second episode of which airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC, aren’t alone. Its latest star, Juan Pablo Galavis, says he’s interested to see what happened among the women when he wasn’t around. “I don’t get to see any of that,” said Galavis in an interview last week. “It was the same on ‘The Bachelorette.’ All the guys were on good behavior in front of Desiree (Hartsock) but around the house they weren’t.” The 32-year-old former pro soccer player competed for the affection of Hartsock last summer on “The Bachelorette.” He wasn’t chosen for a one-on-one date and had very little air time before getting sent home. Still, he made such an impression with viewers that ABC decided to make him “The Bachelor.” Host Chris Harrison admitted recently to Galavis being a surprise candidate. “Juan Pablo really wasn’t on our radar as we ended the show,” said Harrison, who explained producers typically have a good idea of who should make the cut as the next bachelor or bachelorette. “We’ve really never had any-

body who’s had less screen time and less attention get so much popularity. We kind of had to rethink the whole thing. … Once we announced him it was nuts.”

“Women just swoon. It makes me mad and I’m jealous and I don’t like him.” — CHRIS HARRISON, HOST OF “THE BACHELOR,” JOKES ABOUT JUAN PABLO GALAVIS’ “INTANGIBLE CHARISMA.”

ABC was quick to capitalize on the it factor of Galavis, the show’s first Latin bachelor. They began calling the month of January “Juan-uary” in ads and aired a “Countdown to Juan Pablo” special the night before on the casting process. Galavis was born in Ithaca, N.Y., but grew up in Venezuela. He played professional soccer there and moved to Miami to play with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, but retired in 2008 after the birth of his daughter, Camila (whose mom is an ex-girlfriend he never married.) He now works as a sports and entertainment consultant. For all of the attention “The Bachelor” has earned him, Galavis said he’s just focused on living his life normally. “I want the show to be successful and if it’s successful that means I was myself and people got to know me as I am and they like what they saw on TV.” ALICIA R ANCILIO (AP)

Da Party’s in Vermont, Now: Acclaimed director Werner Herzog created a short film titled “Where’s Da Party At?” for a University of Vermont film class. The class’ instructor gave Herzog a Super 8mm film camera at a lecture at Dartmouth University last fall, and the director returned it with three minutes of footage of a decaying building in Detroit. The films the students created with Herzog’s footage are viewable now on Vimeo. (E XPRESS)

“Americans drink less than half a bottle of Scotch per person per year.” — ROBERTO A. FERDMAN AT QZ.COM rattles off

a statistic that might anger Ron Burgundy, the main character in the “Anchorman” movies who loves his “Scotchy Scotch Scotch.” As it turns out, Singapore tops the rankings of biggest Scotch consumers with more than 12 bottles per year per capita, followed by Latvia, with roughly seven bottles, and Panama with more than three.

“Being a 7th grader at Arundel Middle School, I barely could stand straight standing at the bus stop.” — COMMENTER JOEY C. AT ODENTON.PATCH .COM describes his experience on Fri-

day morning, when he was attempting to get to school on time amid freezing rain. Joey reports that several students slipped and fell. The superintendent of Maryland’s Anne Arundel County schools later admitted the system “made the wrong call” in not allowing for a later school start that day and vowed to investigate the process that leads to weatherrelated school-closing decisions.

“I’m pretty sure that if you select ‘Other,’ the FSB shows up at your door to whisk you off to a gulag.”

“In his defense, he probably has to shake hands multiple times while eating a meal in public. I wouldn’t want to touch my pizza after that either.”

Is Your Bipolar Depression Hard to Treat ? Experiencing thoughts of sadness, hopelessness, guilt, worthlessness, lacking interest in everyday activities you once enjoyed? NIH researchers seek persons between the ages of 18-55 with bipolar disorder, who are currently in a depressive phase, for participation in several brain imaging and medication studies that are evaluating how experimental medications (ketamine, riluzole & scopolamine) may reduce symptoms rapidly. Participation includes 1-4 visits, psychiatric interviews, medical history, physical exam, blood and other medical tests. Some studies are conducted on an outpatient basis, others on an inpatient basis. Participants must be free of other serious medical conditions. Research evaluations and medications are provided at no cost.

EASY

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’re trying to do too much on your own. Invite a trusted friend along with you if you find it necessary to go on the road. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Motivation comes to you today from an unusual source. A chance meeting excites you in a new way. A friend says he or she is available. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The stars are looking kindly upon your current predicament, and you are likely to get some very timely help from an unlikely ally. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep your head in the game. Don’t take your eyes off the ball. What happens next will matter more than you know.

Friday’s Solution

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A decision you make today is likely to have quite a far-reaching impact on you and those in your inner circle. Think of them, too! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may feel as though your team is one member short, but later in the day someone tells you he or she is ready to sign on. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Opportunities are many, and your biggest problem may be deciding which you want to take advantage of — and in what order. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Things may get far more serious than you were anticipating — but you can be ready for any developments that result.

Friday’s Solution

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You don’t want to have to give orders; you want, instead, to lead by example and have others follow suit. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Someone you trust is willing to step in and try to figure out a mystery that you are eager to solve. A lasting friendship is in the making.

Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie are calling it quits after three years of marriage. A statement from 26-yearold Duff’s reps says the couple has “mutually decided to an amicable separation. They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives.” It goes on to say they’re committed to co-parenting their son, Luca, who turns 2 in March. (AP)

Ke$ha’s mother has followed her daughter’s lead and checked into the same rehab center as Ke$ha, although for post-traumatic stress disorder rather than an eating disorder, People magazine reported. Pebe Sebert, 57, said she blames Ke$ha’s producer, Dr. Luke, for both her problems and her daughter’s. (E XPRESS)
