Study: Arrests Become Status Quo 5 in 10 black men, 4 in 10 white men arrested by age 23



2 Nabbed in Target Credit-Card Fraud Case

The estimated amount of men who have been arrested at least once by age 23, according to a new study.

Nearly 50 percent of black men and 40 percent of white men are arrested at least once on non-traffic-related crimes by the time they turn 23, according to a new study. One of the authors of the study, published this month in the journal “Crime & Delinquency,” said the statistics could be useful in shaping policy so people aren’t haunted by arrests when they apply for jobs, schools or public housing. “Ma ny, m a ny p e ople a r e involved with the criminal justice system at this level,” said Shawn Bushway, a University at Albany criminologist. “And treating them all as if they’re hardened criminals is a serious mistake.” The peer-reviewed estimates didn’t rely on arrest records but instead on an annual federal Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of about 7,000 young people who answered questions each year from 1997 to



New York

The estimated amount of men — in a 1967 FBI report— who were arrested at least once by age 23.

2008 on a range of issues — including if they had ever been taken into custody for something other than a traffic offense. Self-reported crimes ranged from underage drinking to violent assaults. The authors found that by age 18, 30 percent of black men, 26 percent of Hispanic men and 22 percent of white men have been arrested. By 23, those numbers climb to 49 percent for black men, 44 percent for Hispanic men and 38 percent for white men — or 40 percent of all men. Among women, 20 percent of blacks, 18 percent of whites and 16 percent of Hispanics were arrested at least once by age 23.

In December, a man is arrested in East Lansing, Mich., after Michigan State football team’s Big Ten title win prompted rowdy fans to celebrate with bonfires.

Further research on the arrests themselves, convictions and recidivism rates are in the works, said the study’s co-author, University of South Carolina criminology professor Robert Brame. “Among criminologists, I don’t think they’re that surprised or alarmed by the findings,” Brame said. “The alarm and concern is among people not as familiar with the patterns.”

Kai Smith, 44, who heads a New York City gang diversion group, said he was first arrested at age 12 or 13 for jumping a subway turnstile. He later went on to serve 16 years in state prison for drug possession. “It’s really damaging … putting handcuffs on a child at 12, 13 or 14 years old,” he said. “Even for something like jumping a turnstile, those acts have ripple effects that can be catastrophic.” JAKE PEARSON (AP)

Christie Camp Denies Withholding Sandy Aid Trenton, N.J. Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration on Monday pushed back against a claim that Superstorm Sandy relief funding was withheld from a severely flooded city because its Democratic mayor wouldn’t sign off on a politically connected real estate venture. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno strongly denied Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s claims as “false” and “illogical” on Monday, the day before Christie’s second-term inauguration. And Marc Ferzan, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Recovery and Rebuilding, told reporters in a conference call that Hoboken has been treated no differently than other cities with respect to storm relief funds. Zimmer said Saturday that Guadagno pulled her aside in May and said Hoboken’s storm recovery funds hinged on Zimmer’s approval of a commercial development whose lawyer and lobbyist are close to the governor. On Sunday, Zimmer told CNN that

Guadagno said the mayor’s description of the conversation “does not withstand scrutiny when all of the facts are examined.” Zimmer met with investigators from the U.S. attorney’s office for several hours Sunday and gave them journal entries she said were made at the time of the conversation. She also has offered to take a lie-detector test or testify under oath. ANGEL A DELLI SANTI (AP)

Iran Spot at Syria Talks Revoked Geneva A last-minute U.N. invitation for Iran to join this week’s Syria peace talks threw the long-awaited Geneva conference into doubt Monday, forcing U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon to rescind his offer after the opposition threatened to boycott. With the invitation withdrawn, the main Western-backed opposition group said it would attend the talks aimed at ending Syria’s ruinous three-year civil war. The opposition said the conference should seek to establish a transitional government with full executive powers “in which killers and criminals do not participate.” The surprise invitation, extend-

Why Invite Iran? Iran is Syrian President Bashar Assad’s strongest regional ally and has supplied his government with advisers, money and materiel since the Syrian uprising began in 2011. Iran’s allies, most notably the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, have also gone to Syria to help bolster Assad’s forces.

which had voted late Saturday to attend after months of rancorous debate, issued an ultimatum, saying that Iran must commit publicly within hours to withdraw its “troops and militias” from Syria and abide by a 2012 road map to establish a transitional government. Otherwise, the group said, the U.N. should withdraw its invitation for

Tehran to take part. In Tehran, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham was quoted by the official IRNA news agency saying that Iran does not recognize the Geneva road map because it did not attend the conference that drafted it. T he la st-m i nute decision appeared to take the U.S. and its European allies by surprise. An Iranian statement said Iran had accepted the invitation “without accepting any pre-conditions.” Ban said he was “deeply disappointed” by Iran’s statements Monday. It is not clear what exactly motivated him to issue the invitation, but it came hours after he said he had received assurances from Tehran that it accepted the premise of the talks on Syria, which has been ruled by President Bashar Assad’s family since 1970.

Navy Yard residents fight proposed train tunnel reconstruction Washington The proposed reconstruction of a railroad tunnel in Southeast has residents of the thriving Navy Yard community asking the District government to help kill the project. CSX Transportation says the century-old rail tunnel that runs beneath Virginia Avenue SE, from Second to 11th streets, is inadequate for modern freight capacity and is a major bottleneck in its rail network. CSX wants to convert the tun-

nel’s single track to a two-track configuration and allow overhead room for double-stacked container trains. The company says the change would allow it to handle expected increases in freight transportation on the East Coast, in part stemming from the Panama Canal expansion scheduled for completion in 2015. The plan would require that the 3,800-foot-long tunnel be ripped out, and it could take three to six years to complete the project — at a cost of $168 million to $208 million. An open trench would accommodate construction activities and train operations just steps away from the front doors of residences along Virginia Avenue.


Old Tunnel, New Problem in D.C.

Natalie Skidmore walks her kids near where the CSX tunnel project will be.

“With an open trench, we have concerns about how people are going to get around,” said Natalie

Skidmore, who lives in a Virginia Avenue rowhouse with her husband and two young children. “We are going to lose parking spots, trees and access.” The Federal Highway Administration and the D.C. Department of Transportation are reviewing the proposal and could release a final environmental assessment early this year. After the assessment is completed, the Federal Highway Administration is expected to issue a decision on the project. If the project wins federal approval, CSX would then apply to DDOT for construction permits. At that point, the city can approve or deny CSX’s request.

A Massive Mayoral Meh Candidates in D.C.’s Democratic primary struggle to stand out Washington To the ambitious D.C. politician, the looming Democratic primary seems like an unmatched opportunity: A mayor seared by an ongoing federal investigation enters the race late and struggles to attract support. The only obstacle: the swarm of other Democrats who also want the job. A central drama driving the April 1 primary is whether a weakened Mayor Vincent Gray can persuade voters to grant him another term. With at least eight Democrats on the ballot and a Washington Post poll suggesting a splintered electorate, an equally crucial question is whether a single candidate — with less than three months before the election — can emerge as the mayor’s conqueror.

Meanwhile ... When the field of Democratic mayoral candidates gathered for a straw poll Saturday in Ward 8, one notable spectator was absent: Marion Barry, the ward’s D.C. Council member. The forum’s moderator said Barry had been at Howard University Hospital for a week, “fighting a blood infection.” Barry’s office confirmed Monday that the former four-term mayor was admitted to Howard on Jan. 11 and is expected to be released “in the next couple of days.” (T WP)

The campaign of Muriel Bowser, one of four D.C. Council members in the race, has touted its own poll placing her in a “statistical tie” with Gray. And on Saturday, after Bowser triumphed in a straw poll of Ward 8 voters, her campaign

said it proved “there is only one person with the vision and plan” to lead the city. Bowser is not the only candidate anointing herself as the mayor’s most potent adversary. Jack Evans told a circle of prospective voters in Georgetown last week that the race is between him and Gray. Tommy Wells, yet another council member in the running, said his focus on ethics and campaign finance reform, as well as a strong base in his home ward, position him to capitalize on Gray’s weakness and gather citywide support. Kevin Chavous, a former council member who ran for mayor in 1998, said breaking away is a challenge: “You need to capture the imagination of the voters. You have to excite the possibilities of the future and give them hope and a vision. It’s more than saying, ‘I’m more ethical’ and ‘I’m a better guy.’ ” PAUL S CH WA R T Z M A N A ND MIK E DeB ONI S (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Va. Delegate Fights to Ban Gay Conversion Therapy Richmond Apryl Prentiss was raised a faithful Christian, and she loved church. So, when she realized she was a lesbian, she was terrified and ashamed. She sought out reparative therapy for gays who wanted to be straight. The years she spent there, followed by two in a Christian exgay program in Virginia Beach, Va., were “the darkest of my life,” she said during a news conference at the Virginia Capitol on Monday. “I absolutely detested myself.” Prentiss doesn’t want teenagers to suffer as she did. That’s why she’s supporting a bill from Del. Patrick Hope to ban the practice of reparative or conversion therapy by mental health professionals trying to “cure” minors of being gay. The practice is increasingly seen

as anti-gay at a time when more and more Americans view sexual orientation not as a choice or lifestyle, and see gays as a group deserving of legal protection. The ban would not affect religious counseling that does not involve licensed therapists or adults who seek out the therapy on their own. Instead, it would bar professional therapists from practicing conversion therapy. Social conservatives argue that the ban would intrude on the rights of therapists and families. Hope acknowledged Monday that it would be hard to get the bill through the Republican-dominated House of Delegates. But he suggested that it was the right time to begin debate on the issue, even if the legislation does not pass this year.

A winter storm warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for the mid-Atlantic, as periods of moderate to heavy snow are likely. The initial accumulation forecast is 4 to 7 inches across the D.C. region with a 15 percent chance of more than that, and a 15 percent chance of less. Winds are also expected to increase in the afternoon so some blowing and drifting snow is possible by late in the day. Bundle up! Don’t forget: It’s still January.

Race Obama acknowledges that the color of his skin might affect how some Americans perceive his presidency, but he doesn’t think it has a major overall effect. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” he said. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president.”

Presidential Talking Points

“The leaks, he said, had ‘put people at risk’ but revealed nothing illegal. And though the leaks raised ‘legitimate policy questions’ about N.S.A. operations, ‘the issue then is: Is the only way to do that by giving some twenty-nineyear-old free rein to basically dump a mountain of information, much of which is definitely legal, definitely necessary for national security, and should properly be classified?’ ”

President Barack Obama’s interview in this week’s New Yorker — where he muses on a host of hot issues including marijuana, football and race — is already the talk of the town. Don’t have time to read the nearly 17,000-word profile written by editor David Remnick? Here are 10 highlights for the time-crunched.

6. His Key Strength Obama believes that his equanimity endures as one of his key strengths. “I do think one of my strengths is temperament. I am comfortable with complexity, and I think I’m pretty good at keeping my moral compass while recognizing that I am a product of original sin.”


7. Presidential Limits Obama said that even the greatest presidents — like Abraham Lincoln — had to operate in the currents of history. “[I]t took another hundred and fifty years before African-Americans had anything approaching formal equality, much less real equality. … [A]t the end of the day we’re part of a long-running story. We just try to get our paragraph right.”

3. Marijuana Obama said he doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.” (Smoking marijuana is “not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy,” Obama said.) And he said he is most concerned about the impact of drug laws on minorities and the poor. “Middleclass kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do,” he said. “And AfricanAmerican kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.” He added that he supports Colorado and Washington’s efforts to “go forward” with their efforts at legalization and decriminalization.


8. His Must-Do List

4. Drones Obama defended his strategy of using drones to kill terrorism suspects abroad, saying that his “preference” remains to capture and prosecute them, but if that proves infeasible, “I cannot stand by and do nothing.” He continued, “What I’ve tried to do is to tighten the process so much and limit the risks of civilian casualties so much that we have the least fallout from those actions. But it’s not perfect.” He also notes: “The only time I get frustrated is when folks act like it’s not complicated and there aren’t some real tough decisions … I didn’t run for office so that I could go around blowing things up.”

5. NSA/Snowden Obama said he does not regard the leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden as comparable to the Pentagon Papers or other leaks vindicated by history. Remnick writes:


On Marijuana Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, praised Obama’s words, saying his use of the word “important” about the new Colorado and Washington laws “really puts the wind in the sails of the movement to end marijuana prohibition.

On ‘the Race Card’ Sarah Palin’s remark Monday on Facebook may or may not have been in reaction to Obama’s New Yorker comment on race (see No. 2) but that’s how many people in the Twitterverse took it. After wishing everyone “Happy MLK, Jr. Day!” and including a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., she wrote “Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.” (AP/E XPRESS)

Bonus Detail The New Yorker article details what Barack Obama’s body man carries in a bag for the president: “Pens, the briefing books, the Nicorette, the Sharpies, the Advil, the throat lozenges, the iPad, the iPod, the protein bars, the bottle of Black Forest Berry Honest Tea.” (T WP)

Remnick asked Obama about what he must get done before the end of 2016. He responded, “I will measure myself at the end of my presidency in large part by whether I began the process of rebuilding the middle class and the ladders into the middle class, and reversing the trend toward economic bifurcation in this society.”

9. Gay Marriage Obama conceded that it’s “fair to say that I may have come to that realization slightly before I actually made the announcement” favoring gay marriage, in May 2012. “But this was not a situation where I kind of did a wink and a nod and a hundred-and-eighty-degree turn.”

10. Pop-Culture Depictions “The truth is, in popular culture the president is usually a side character and a lot of times is pretty dull,” he said. “If it’s a paranoid conspiracy-theory movie, then there’s an evil aide who is carrying something out. If it’s a good president, then he is all-wise and all-knowing”— like the characters played by Martin Sheen in “The West Wing” and Michael Douglas in “The American President.” “I’ll tell you that watching ‘Lincoln’ was interesting, in part because you watched what obviously was a fictionalized account of the president I most admire, and there was such a gap between him and me that it made you want to be better.” (TWP/EXPRESS)

Wizards guard Bradley Beal had a team-high 22 points in Monday’s win.

Wizards Bradley Beal scored 22 points with nine rebounds and eight assists, Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 11 rebounds and the Wizards reached .500 for the fourth time this season with a 107-99 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday. Each of the previous three times Washington has made it to breakeven, it has lost the next game. On Wednesday against Boston, the Wizards will try to get over .500 for the first time since they were 2-1 on Oct. 31, 2009. Beal missed 12 of 14 shots in Saturday’s loss to Detroit but snapped back to score 13 in the second quarter Monday and help give Washington a 61-51 lead at halftime. The Wizards were ahead 10079 with 6:07 to play, but Philadelphia scored 13 straight to trail by eight with 2:26 left. Kevin Seraphin had 16 for Washington. John Wall added 14. (AP)

Wizards at .500 Again

Redskins assistants, from left, Jim Haslett, Sean McVay, Raheem Morris, Chris Foerster and Ike Hilliard all have previous coaching experience in Washington.

Old Look to New Regime It feels like the Redskins are getting the old gang back together. Linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti, who worked for five coaches over 11 seasons in Washington, returns following a three-year hiatus. Receivers coach Ike Hilliard is back for new coach Jay Gruden’s staff after one year away. Earnest Byner, who played for Washington from 1989 to 1993 and coached from 2004 to 2007, could return as well. Maybe Gruden needs people who know where the bodies are buried around Redskins Park, which has been a coaching graveyard since owner Dan Snyder’s 1999 arrival. W hat’s next — V i nc e L omb a r d i By Rick returns to haunt the Snider place? But the real comeback story of eternity is defensive coordinator Jim Haslett returning. Redskins fans wanted his door keys turned in back in September.

Despite being in the 3-4 scheme for the fourth straight season, the Redskins were the NFL’s 30th-ranked scoring defense this year. Haslett’s return is like a Capitol Hill comeback of a disgraced politician who keeps getting reelected. If Haslett can return to Washington, maybe Chris Christie’s presidential aspirations are not to be done just yet. The true backstory at Redskins Park is a Florida Tuskers reunion where Haslett was head coach with Gruden, Sean McVay and Hilliard as assistants

in something called the United Football League, which played a handful of games in a handful of cities for a handful of seasons. How is Gruden going to fire someone who gave him a break? That would take a cold person. But then, there are so many cold people at Redskins Park the team could change its name to the Blizzards. Other Mike Shanahan-era carryovers — in addition to Haslett and McVay — include Chris Foerster and Raheem Morris. McVay was promoted from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator. The 27-year-old carries that young progeny status Jason Garrett once adorned with

Basically, the Redskins staff is now a combination of Shanahan carryovers and UFL refugees.

Dallas before he was promoted to head coach and exposed as just another guy with a whistle. The Redskins don’t want to lose a prospective future head coach. Basically, the Redskins staff is now a combination of Shanahan carryovers and UFL refugees. Well, maybe they’ll have better luck than the last seven crews that sank under Snyder. Indeed, so many coaches have been through Redskins Park under Snyder that it has become a “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” game — connecting any assistant to the Redskins. Probably three degrees is all you’ll need. It’s natural to think some would return for a second helping. At least they know what they’re entering. Hopefully, something old will produce something new for the Redskins — winning. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks

Caps’ Orlov Learning on the Fly 22-year-old’s miscues prove costly during road losing streak When it comes to Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov, coach Adam Oates has continually stressed that the 22-year-old must improve his defensive play to match his natural offensive ability. Since cracking Washington’s lineup on Nov. 30, Orlov has made significant strides while handling top-four minutes, but the Capitals’ recently completed road trip proved

Tonight | CSN

that he has plenty of work left to do. In all three games, losses to the Penguins, Blue Jackets and Rangers that dropped the Capitals into fifth place in the Metropolitan Division, Orlov had several defensive miscues. In Pittsburgh on Wednesday and Columbus on Friday, Orlov failed to tie up forwards Jussi Jokinen and Cam Atkinson in front of the net, allowing both to establish position and score from in tight.



7 P.M.

Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov is averaging 19:42 of ice time per game.

Then on Sunday, Orlov’s illadvised pass intended for center Nicklas Backstrom from high in the Capitals’ zone was intercepted by Rangers forward Rick Nash, who raced in for an uncontested breakaway goal only 70 seconds into the game. In the second period, Orlov matched Rangers captain Ryan Callahan stride for stride on a short-handed rush, but eventually “relaxed,” as Oates put it, offering little resistance as Callahan potted the rebound of forward Dominic Moore’s shot. “I need to just next game play defense, try to play defense more

because I can’t play like this,” Orlov said. “Just keep working and try to not do mistakes like I did in the last few games.” Oates, however, is sympathetic to Orlov’s recent struggles, understanding that a defenseman’s mistakes are magnified more than a forward’s because they tend to prove more costly, especially when that defenseman is learning on the fly. “[It’s] a shame because he’s played good hockey,” Oates said. “You’ve got to remind yourself he’s a kid and we’re putting him in a situation where we’re asking him to play a lot of minutes. It’s very difficult and he’s playing good. And it just goes to show you one mistake and it’s in your cage. It’s a tough lesson to learn that fast.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Knockout Workout Punch up your fitness routine by training like boxer Marlen Esparza The most terrifying place to be in America this week? In the ring with Marlen Esparza at the USA Boxing National Championships in Spokane, Wash. It’s much safer to meet the 24-year-old flyweight, who brought home a bronze medal from the 2012 Olympics, through the TV i n you r l iv ing room. With her debut DV D, “Power Boxing Workout” ($17, acacialifest yle .com), Esparza can show up any time to flash a smile and introduce viewers to technique, lingo and her training philosophy. “It’s how I throw punches. It’s how I learned,” says Esparza, who was drawn to her dad’s favorite sport at the age of 11. With this beginner program, she hopes to hook a broader audience on boxing, which she views as a training ground for more than just physical fitness: “It takes a lot mentally. You learn what you’re capable of.” You also learn what’s required to power up a jab or cross. Much of the conditioning in the hour-long workout is focused on the lower body and core. (“You’re like a tree — you need a strong trunk,” she explains.)

The lunge series that involves stepping out at every possible angle is something Esparza always relies on when she’s tapering before a big match. There are no weights, but it’s still a killer routine, she says. And although she’s not usually one to stay still, Esparza will stop moving in order to strengthen her mid-section. “I started to fall in love with the plank in 2010 when I realized how it warms your body,” she says. “I have to shadow box for five to six minutes to get warm. I can hold plank for a minute instead.” (Viewers may get downright hot following along with all of Esparza’s plank variations in the workout, which include rotating from side to side and alternating leg and arm lifts.) Wonder why Esparza insists that you do some squats on the balls of your feet? “In the ring, you never get on your heels. That’s the wrong position. You always want to be ready to go,” she says.  Once Esparza has run through the conditioning and explained boxing basics, she tests that readiness with a barrage of moves. At that point, you should know how Boxer Marlen Esparza wants to introduce exercisers to her sport.

Even Olympians make New Year’s resolutions. So what’s Marlen Esparza’s?

“I’ve been trying to work on my butt. I want to make it more proportional to my body.”

to get into “orthodox stance” (left foot forward, right foot back), and follow along as she orders, “Live, jab, cross, hook, cross, escape!” When you’re wiped out, it’s time to join Esparza for her “shake out.” The ritual is partially a physical cool-down to loosen up her body and check in with how her muscles feel. But it’s also a chance for a mental release. “I can’t leave the gym and be worried. I have to get my mind correct. Whatever happened, it’s done,” Esparza says. “If you bring those other days with you, you’ll never feel fresh.” Working on this DVD has also

served as a reboot for Esparza, who says that getting into a coaching mindset motivates her to fine-tune her own technique. “I know how to throw my jab. But if I explain it to somebody, I’m perfecting mine all over again,” she says. “The simplest things to me aren’t that simple.” It’s not difficult, however, to understand her goal for this week’s championships — and every other fight leading up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro: “I want to not just win, but dominate.” Expect Esparza’s instructions on how to do that in future DVDs.

I’ve tried to have another co-worker with me to catch her in the act, but she manages to disappear.

The risks of breast cancer increase greatly during and after pregnancy Pam Crum was 22 weeks pregnant with her second daughter when she noticed a lump and redness in one of her breasts. She wasn’t alarmed immediately. It was probably just mastitis — a treatable breast tissue infection — the Falls Church resident thought. Or maybe it was some side effect of pregnancy. “But it still looked odd,” says Crum, who was 42 at the time. Her obstetrician told her to wait two weeks to see if the problem went away. By her next appointment, the mass had grown. Two weeks after that, Crum started chemotherapy for breast cancer. “Of course my reaction was, ‘I haven’t had coffee, I’m not having wine, no chocolate, I’m going to have chemotherapy?’ ” Crum says. It seemed crazy to be worried about caffeine when she’d be bombarding her body with drugs and having surgery. But she delivered a healthy

baby girl — with a full head of hair, despite the fact that Crum was bald from the chemo. Now 51, Crum has been in remission since finishing 10 months of treatment in 2005. She’s still dealing with the disease, however, in her position with the Inova Breast Care Institute. She coordinates a mentorship program throughout the network of Northern Virginia locations that matches breast cancer survivors with newly diagnosed patients. Through her work, Crum has met a handful of other women who have also been diagnosed with pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC). Up to 20 percent of breast cancers in women younger than 30 are associated with pregnancy, says Lisa McGrail, assistant clinical professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. And PABC is growing in frequency, she adds.

The reasons why aren’t well understood, says Erica Mayer, a breast oncologist at the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. “It’s not the high level of estrogen during pregnancy that’s driving cancer development,” Mayer says. But hormones might play a role for women diagnosed postpartum, McGrail says: “It may have something to do with the stopping of lactation and when the cells change at the cessation of lactation. We do know that there’s a transient increased risk of breast cancer in the postpartum period. That’s for everybody.” Breast cancers that are diagnosed postpartum may be more

aggressive and have a slightly inferior prognosis, Mayer says. Additionally, postpartum moms might mistake a tumor for a lump caused by a clogged milk duct or normal changes from pregnancy. “Because changes in the breast are common during pregnancy and postpartum, it does create a situation where a cancer may progress a little further along in a woman with pregnancy-associated breast cancer than it would in someone who is not pregnant,” Mayer says. It’s rare for doctors to discuss the potential risk for cancer with pregnant patients — Crum says her doctor never raised the possibility at all. It’s standard to conduct a full breast and pelvic exam at the first prenatal visit. After that, it’s up to patients to be vigilant. “If you see something about your breast that just doesn’t seem right, go see your doctor and press them, ask questions and really push them to see if there is something going on,” Crum says. When women are diagnosed with PABC during gestation, steps can be taken immediately. Standard treatments such as surgery and some chemotherapies are safe for expectant moms, McGrail says, although radiation must wait until after childbirth. For Crum at the time, being a cancer patient and the mother of a newborn (and a 3½-year-old) meant balancing terror with pure joy. “You have new life along with a life that is threatened,” says Crum, who coped by focusing on the present. “If no one was sick, if no one was in the hospital, if we were all sleeping in our beds under the same roof, that was a good day. “It really wasn’t until a year later or a couple of years later, I look back and think, ‘Wow, that was really something. How did we do that?’ ” STEPHANIE K ANOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

RaceDots Attract Attention The race is always on for that new product that all athletes will want. And Jason Berry, who lives in Arlington, thinks he could win it. When the filmmaker and amateur cyclist signed up for a competition last year, he splurged on a pricey speed suit. But Berry couldn’t bring himself to pierce the thin fabric with safety pins to attach his race bib. “To put holes in it would be egregious,” says Berry, who improvised a solution with magnets he’d gotten as a gift instead.

somebody was going to mock me.” He got the opposite reaction. Other competitors wanted a magnetic fix, too. Over the next few months, Berry experimented with various magnets. Ones that are too powerful are a pain to get on and off; ones that are too weak could let a bib drop. When he found ones that were just right, added a durable shell and developed an assembly mechanism, Berry had his invention: RaceDots. After a successful Indiegogo campaign, Berry’s fledgling company also had funding. (And plenty of it — the goal was $30,000, but folks donated more than twice that amount.) As of last week, the products are available for pre-sale on racedots .com: A set of five is $25-$29, with an expected delivery date in April. That’s just in time for race season.

The Voice of the Square Film

‘Opposite Worlds’ (SYFY) Luke Tipple, right, hosts this new game show that divides 14 people into two teams and sends them to live in very different environments — one prehistoric, one futuristic. The game gets tricky when players compete for a chance to switch sides.

Egyptian activists Khalid Abdalla, left, and Ahmed Hassan, right, are the central characters in “The Square.”


no place else I wanted to be in the world when things started happening there,” Noujaim, 39, said. It was in Tahrir Square that she met the film’s key figures, each a different piece of the populist puzzle that came together in the story. “It was so important for us that this film was really made by Egyptians, that it was the voice of the square,” Noujaim said. The Academy Award nomination is the first ever for an Egyptian film. The timing is crucial, as the country voted last week on a new constitution — backed by the military government — with presidential and parliamentary elections expected soon. “There’s going to be so many films and books and retrospectives that will be made about this time,” she said. “What we hoped to capture was what it actually felt like to be on the ground, and that you can’t capture again.” STE VE DOLL AR (THE WASHINGTON POST )

“The Square” is showing at West End Cinema and streaming on Netflix.

‘Cougar Town’ (TBS) Jules has trouble saying no to a wedding invitation even though Grayson has a major conflict on that day, and they hardly know the couple. Tom’s model of the neighborhood — complete with lifelike dolls — creeps everyone out.


“This story, much more than anything I’ve ever worked on, I had no idea where it was going.”


“The Square,” nominated Thursday for an Academy Award for best documentary and winner of an audience award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, opened Friday in theaters and via Netflix, but has yet to be screened in Egypt, whose tumultuous recent history is its subject. “The film is in censorship,” the film’s director, Jehane Noujaim, said. “There’s an attempt to whitewash the last three years.” That period is given intimate perspective in the film, which tracks the downfall of dictatorial Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011 after 18 days of mass protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. The story continues as Mubarak’s successor, Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, also is toppled, amid rising violence. “Most of these verite films, you make up a story that you think you’re following,” said Noujaim, whose f ilms include “Control Room” and “” “You make a plan and God laughs, right?” Noujaim was born in Washington but raised in Cairo between the ages of 7 and 17. She grew up a few minutes from Tahrir Square but never imagined that one day she’d be sleeping in it. “There was

More famously, Peyton shouted “Omaha!” a total of 31 times, which netted Manning’s Peyback Foundation $24,800.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can give someone a boost without giving up too much yourself, including your advantageous position. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You seem to know which way you are going even when you are not looking all that closely at the terrain. Imagine if you were paying attention! TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will be playing catch-up throughout much of the day. Don’t let yourself lose sight of the goals that you have set for yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) The countdown has begun, and you must be ready to swing into action when it gets to zero. Your plans are fully formed and detailed.
