FORT BELVOIR, VA Ashley Hartwell’s hand-painted eyes are bloodshot. She has sweat running down her cheek. She’s an image of a U.S. Army military police soldier on a hot day in Ramadi during the war in Iraq in 2006. And although she is made of acrylic resin and stands motionless in a wooden crate wrapped in clear plastic, she looks ready. The simulated MP, modeled on actual Iraq veteran Hartwell, is among 54 ghostly figures from the Army’s past, waiting for the summons to step into the service’s $200 million museum, which is under construction outside Fort Belvoir, Va. The National Museum of the United States Army is designed to be the service’s flagship museum when it opens late next year, or the year after, officials said. And as such it will include some of the most powerful artifacts from the Army’s history, as well as the model soldiers. The museum has already selected 1,300 “micro” artifacts and 19 “macro” artifacts

Clockwise from top left: The U.S. Army Historical Museum will feature life-size figures in military uniforms, a WWI horse gas mask, a K-Ration Breakfast Box from WWII and the dress cap of Gen. Douglas MacArthur.

Agency considers two maglev train routes

THE DISTRICT

D.C. man gets 35 years for fatal Metro stabbing

D.C.-to-Baltimore ride would take 15 minutes along BW Parkway

KO SASAKI (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

TRANSPORTATION Transportation officials have narrowed to two the number of possible routes for a superconducting maglev train line that would take passengers from Washington to Baltimore in 15 minutes — inching closer to reality a project that some still dismiss as unrealistic. With the pool of route alignments down to two, the Federal Railroad Administration, which is leading a federal review process, can move to select a preferred route and construction process. The federal government’s next step would be giving the clearance for tunneling to begin as early as 2020 and operations in 2027. That’s what project proponents are betting on, anyway. But upon completion of the environmental impact statement in mid-2019, the FRA could also rule against building the line — the wish of many residents along the route’s path. Northeast Maglev, the team of private investors behind the project, touts the line as a way to ease travel along congested Interstate 95. Chiefly, the group says, it would add rail capacity to the Northeast Corridor — the nation’s busiest — while the technology would revolutionize train travel, bringing it closer to

flying, and free of the delays that plague today’s railroads. “Our infrastructure is crying out for some kind of change,” Wayne Rogers, chief executive of Northeast Maglev, told a panel of Maryland lawmakers this month. The 40-mile rail line is planned as the first leg of a system that would move people from Washington to New York in an hour. Building the D.C.-Baltimore stretch could cost between $10 billion and $12 billion; Northeast Maglev says it has secured $5 billion from partners in Japan. In recent months, the FRA eliminated about 10 other routes that had been reviewed as part of the proposal. The eliminated routes would have had the most impact on communities, and some would have necessitated the leveling of hundreds of homes.

$105M

The two remaining routes parallel the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. On the east side, the route would encroach on federal land, including the parkway, the National Security Agency at Fort Meade and NASA in Greenbelt. Northeast Maglev officials say this is their preferred option. On the west side, the rail line would track along the edge of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway right of way and affect some residential properties. About 75 percent of the route would run underground — some 80 feet to 100 feet beneath, project officials say. Northeast Maglev estimates the project will create 74,000 construction jobs during the seven-year building period and 1,500 permanent positions once the system is operational.

Dead coyotes found hanging in rural areas Prowling coyotes have become so prevalent in rural Virginia that some residents are stringing up carcasses from tree branches. A photographer traveling the back roads of Shenandoah Valley last week captured images of a dozen dead coyotes swaying from a roadside tree in West Augusta. Mike Fies, a wildlife biologist with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, said there are no population-control benefits to stringing up dead coyotes. He said the practice is possibly a holdover from the days when ranchers were paid bounties for each carcass. “Recognizing that coyotes can sometimes cause significant livestock damage in some areas, their carcasses should still be respectfully disposed of,” he said.

VA. GOP’S OFFER TO FUND METRO

The amount Virginia House Republican leaders are offering Metro in additional funding in what they billed as a low-cost plan that rules out tax increases and requires the agency to tighten its spending as a condition for getting additional money. The legislation falls short of the approximately $150 million per year the agency says it needs from Virginia. But Metro and its supporters were pleased that the Republican lawmakers appear to be serious about approving increased revenue. (TWP)

Ex-Va. Tech students pleads no contest in teen’s killing

Rep. Harris says he opposes drilling off the state’s coast

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has signed an executive order outlining the factors a governor must consider when making parole decisions for an offender sentenced as a juvenile to life in prison. The order announced by Hogan’s office Friday requires that the governor weigh the offender’s age at the time of the crime, as well as demonstrated maturity and rehabilitation. Hogan’s office says the order codifies current practice. Maryland is among states that require the governor to sign off on parole recommendations for lifers. Critics say that leads to too few people being released. (AP)

After listening to days of testimony from prosecution witnesses, a former Virginia Tech student pleaded no contest Friday to killing a 13-year-old girl he met online. David Eisenhauer, 20, entered his plea to all three charges against him in the 2016 stabbing death of Nicole Lovell: first-degree murder, abduction and concealing a body. A plea of no contest means a defendant acknowledges there’s enough evidence to convict him, but doesn’t admit he committed the crime. The plea has the same effect as a guilty plea. Sentencing is scheduled for May. The judge told Eisenhauer he faces up to life, plus 15 years. (AP)

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., says he doesn’t support offshore drilling along Maryland’s coast. Harris, the only Republican in Maryland’s congressional delegation, was asked about his position at a recent town hall. Harris said he supports the concept of offshore drilling, but he opposes it where local jurisdictions don’t want it. Harris, who represents the Eastern Shore, said: “Since Ocean City and the local jurisdictions do oppose it in Maryland, I oppose it off the coast of Maryland.” The top lawyers for a dozen coastal states want the U.S. Interior Department to cancel the Trump administration’s plan to expand offshore drilling.

Aides try to clarify his tweets on harassment, offer support for Kelly

South Korean president invited to Pyongyang

POLITICS Reeling from the downfall of a senior aide, the White House was on the defensive Sunday, attempting to soften President Trump’s comments about the mistreatment of women while rallying around the embattled chief of staff. Several senior aides fanned out on the morning talk shows to discuss how the White House handled the departure of staff secretary Rob Porter, a rising West Wing star who exited after two ex-wives came forward with allegations of spousal abuse. Speechwriter David Sorensen resigned Friday after his former wife made similar claims. The aides also tried to clarify the reaction from Trump, who has yet to offer a sympathetic word to the women who said they had been abused. “The president believes, as he said the other day, you have to consider all sides,” senior counselor Kellyanne Conway said. “He has said this in the past about incidents that relate to him as well. At the same time, you have to look at the results. The result is that Rob Porter is no longer the staff secretary.” On Saturday, Trump tweeted that “lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. … Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?” The day before, he pointed to

Mulvaney said no one has talked to him about replacing Kelly and “I don’t want that job.” There was no sign that a move was imminent.

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Sunday that the administration’s budget plan will include $3 billion for a wall along the Mexico border that Trump has made a priority, but there will be a contingency for $25 billion in spending on the wall over two years if Congress passes legislation to deal with young immigrants known as “Dreamers.”

The White House plans to stop funding the International Space Station after 2024, ending direct federal support of the orbiting laboratory. But it does not intend to abandon it altogether and is working on a transition plan that could turn the station over to the private sector, according to an internal NASA document obtained by The Post.

The White House wants to change how more than 1.5 million federal workers are paid, emphasizing performance-based raises instead of the current system that generally increases pay based on tenure. The proposal would slow tenure-based increases, generating $10 billion over 10 years for performancebased payments. Some workers with poor reviews could be fired.

‘Any of us are addicts’

Many Americans struggle to find ways to escape the abyss of smartphone obsession Maya Oren, 27, is deeply concerned about her relationship with her smartphone and what it’s doing to her life.

6 teens running to be governor of their state

EVELYN HOCKSTEIN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

TECHNOLOGY Maya Oren wants to dial back her dependence on her smartphone. She plans to do it by getting a new phone — a simple one that doesn’t download apps or take photos. But the 27-year-old Washington entrepreneur isn’t planning to entirely ditch her iPhone to which she has an increasingly dysfunctional relationship. “I wake up in the morning and my heart is racing out of my chest,” she said. “I’m checking Instagram. How many new followers did I get? How many people did I lose? What am I going to post today?” Oren’s new phone won’t have its own number — it will simply accept calls forwarded from her iPhone, so she can attempt, on occasion, to step away from the shiny, buzzing rectangle that has come to feel like an ever-present taskmaster. The past few months have brought an escalating awareness of the perils that lurk in our pockets. Or, most of the time, in the viselike grip of our hands. We are in what Larry Rosen, a psychologist who studies society’s relationship with technology, refers to as a “really interesting pit.” He thinks we’re going to sink even deeper into the abyss of smartphone obsession, though not so deep we can never escape. One by one, agitated people are trying to break the trance. Hence, Maya Oren’s desire for that new gadget, called the Light Phone, with a mission statement that declares: “our phones have become our nervous habit, our invisible crutch.” Kay Rhind, a 52-year-old sales director in Silicon Valley, cuts off her home’s WiFi at 11 every night and downloaded an app that allows her to shut off her three teenagers’ phones remotely.

And those girls wisely insisted that Martin and his wife, Julie, put their own devices away. “It’s really made us realize how insidious the addiction to these screens in our pockets are,” Martin said. “If you have more than 30 seconds without stimulation you have this twitch to reach for your cellphone.” Rosen thinks it’s not just entertainment and utility that pulls us to constantly check our phones. It’s obligation. “If you text me and I don’t text you right back you start thinking things like, ‘Is he mad at me?’ We never think, ‘He’s busy,’ ” Rosen says. This is why he believes trying to quit for a while doesn’t do much good. “When you emerge from your time of detox, the situation is more bleak. Instead of having a few email messages, you’ve now got thousands.”

How to curb the urge Larry Rosen, a psychologist who studies society’s relationship with technology, appreciates that some companies are starting to help consumers crawl out of the hole of obsession. He points to Apple’s Night Shift option, a setting that schedules phones to emit less blue light, which can cause people to stay awake. Other tools are emerging in the form of apps such as Checky and Onward, which allow consumers to track their phone usage. (TWP)

Article after article about smartphone addiction offer similar advice on how to cut back: Don’t use your phone an hour before bed, don’t charge it in your bedroom, don’t check it first thing in the morning and delete social media apps. All good advice that would totally work except they rely on self-control, which we have

proved not to have in this domain. “If you walk out your front door and throw a dart, any of us are addicts. The genie is out of the bottle,” Rhind said. “If everybody is an addict, no one will tell you it’s an addiction. They’ll say ‘it’s a necessity in life.’ ” That’s exactly what she says, when she turns off her teenagers’ phones using the app OurPact but continues to use her own, because “it’s for work.” “I’m justifying myself,” she admits. So are smartphones the cigarettes of our era? Are they an addiction we intuitively know is unhealthy but continue because, well, everyone’s doing it? Maya Oren thinks so. “I hope as a society we would take this collective breath,” she said. “Take a step back and use our phones more as the utility they were meant to be — rather than as this appendage of our bodies.” ELLEN MCCARTHY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

S. Africa’s deputy president, Cyril Ramaphosa, President Zuma’s successor, promises to conclude transition of power

KANSAS More than half a dozen Kansas teens are running for statewide office in 2018 — a sort of viral movement against apathy that could, in theory, make a high school student governor. Adults are trying to stop it. A state legislative committee moved a bill forward last week that would bar people younger than 18 from running for statewide office, after a 16-year-old discovered a loophole in the state’s electoral laws. The bill would not affect the 2018 election if it becomes law. Jack Bergeson realized Kansas law, while it restricts voting ages, says nothing about who can run for governor, The Kansas City Star reported last August. So the high school junior filed to run in the Democratic primary, campaigning for health care reform, medical marijuana and open-carry gun laws. One of his classmates became his running mate for lieutenant governor. Some political analysts liked the idea of teens running for public office, The Star wrote, noting widespread apathy among young voters in the country. Other adults mocked Bergeson’s campaign. But the teen was not deterred. He talked his friend, Tyler Ruzich, above, into joining the governor’s race on the Republican side. By January, NPR wrote, six teens had entered the governor’s race alone — making up about a third of the candidates. AVI SELK (TWP)

The Saratov Airlines regional jet disappeared from radar screens a few minutes after departing from Domodedovo Airport en route to Orsk, a city about 1,000 miles southeast of Moscow.

State news agency Tass said the plane, which had been in use since 2010, was out of service from 2015 to 2017 because of a parts shortage. Russian news reports said the jet carried 65 passengers and six crew members. Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov confirmed that there were no survivors. Russia’s Investigative Committee said all possible causes were being explored. President Vladimir Putin put off a planned trip to Sochi to meet with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to monitor the

According to a person familiar with the situation, the Wizards have expressed interest in these players in an effort to sign a reserve point guard. (TWP)

Effects of Eller’s deal Locking up center lets Capitals turn focus to signing Carlson and improving defense NHL In-season extensions such as the five-year, $17.5 million deal given to center Lars Eller on Saturday have been rare in the four years under Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan. The stars aligned for the two sides quickly, and the contract came together in just a few days. It will have a ripple effect on Washington’s plans for the next few months. The NHL trade deadline is two weeks away, and now that Eller has re-signed, the Capitals have a very clear free agent priority: John Carlson, who’s expected to land a hefty contract as a top defenseman. Locking up Eller early rids MacLellan of at least one concern before the Feb. 26 deadline. Had the contract not

come together, the GM might have looked to add a long-term replacement for Eller, who was scheduled to enter free agency. MacLellan said the Capitals have started contract discussions with Carlson’s representatives and the team is “going to do everything we can to bring him back.” How talks progress could dictate what Washington will look to buy before the deadline. If MacLellan is optimistic about re-signing Carlson, then it seems unlikely the Capitals would trade for a blue-liner with years left on his deal. And if it seems like Carlson wants to test free agency, then perhaps Washington will explore trades because the internal options are too green for top-four responsibility.

Red Wings 5, Capitals 4 The Capitals (32-17-6) scored three third-period goals to erase a 4-1 deficit, but Detroit’s Tomas Tatar scored his second goal of the game 2:47 into overtime to lead the Red Wings (22-23-9) to a win on Sunday. Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-best 33rd goal for Washington, which was coming off a home-and-home sweep of Columbus. (AP)

Washington doesn’t have much salary cap space. There has been some speculation that forward Andre Burakovsky, who has a $3 million cap hit, could be on the trading block given how miserably his season has gone; he missed 20 games with a broken thumb

and has been a healthy scratch a few times since. He has four goals and seven assists in 28 games. With Washington intent on re-signing Carlson, who could command a cap hit in the $7 million range, and Eller now on the books with a $3.5 million annual cap hit through 2022-23, it’s unclear where that leaves pending unrestricted free agent center Jay Beagle, 32, who has six goals and 13 assists. Washington also has pending restricted free agents Tom Wilson, Devante Smith-Pelly, Madison Bowey and Philipp Grubauer to consider. Grubauer, 26, could be traded this summer because he may be ready to be a top goaltending option elsewhere. ISABELLE KHURSHUDYAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Cubs’ splashy signing could spur rivals to act as training camps near ANALYSIS Just when it seemed spring training camps would open this week amid a paralyzed free agent market that had MLB and its union on the verge of a labor war, the Cubs reportedly swooped in Saturday and signed right-hander Yu Darvish, arguably the top available starting pitcher, to a six-year, $126 million contract. Pending a physical exam, the

move solves the Cubs’ biggest need — front-line starting pitching. Aside from what his arrival means for Chicago, Darvish’s deal — which is said to have an opt-out, a no-trade clause and escalators that could bring the total value to $150 million — also eases the sense of foreboding hanging over baseball with pitchers and catchers reporting this week. Several other teams had been in pursuit of Darvish — including the Dodgers, Brewers and Twins — and those teams could quickly pivot to the other top starters on the market, including Jake

Arrieta — whom Darvish essentially replaces in the Cubs’ rotation — Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb. The choice to give Darvish, 31, a sixth guaranteed year undoubtedly went a long way to making the Cubs’ offer the winner. Darvish’s deal is the largest signed by any player this winter, topping the one for five years and $80 million the Brewers gave outfielder Lorenzo Cain. First baseman Eric Hosmer, who has yet to sign, is believed to have received multiple seven-year, nine-figure offers this winter.

White’s rivals say nobody’s perfect

Chris Mazdzer said he wasn’t upset that he missed winning gold by three hundredths of a second.

Previous scores of 100 a hot topic for boarders claiming unfair judging

With a surprising silver, Mazdzer becomes the first American man to medal in singles Hamlin became the first U.S. woman to win a singles luge medal when she took bronze at Sochi four years ago. When it was clear that Mazdzer had not only won a medal but won silver, aided by a stunning slip from reigning gold medalist Felix Loch, Hamlin leaped over the track to celebrate. Mazdzer was never supposed to be the one to end this drought. While the American men were expected to make a push for their first singles medal, it was supposed to be Tucker West — one of the fastest starters in the sport — who challenged the podium. West struggled all weekend, and did not qualify for the final run. Mazdzer, 29, had not even climbed a World Cup podium in two years. He is in his third Olympics, and finished 13th in Sochi. But he’d struggled lately. On Jan. 21 he posted a picture to social media of himself looking distraught, followed by a few hundred words about his struggles. “There is a light somewhere in this dark cave that I feel like

LUGE Chris Mazdzer slid down a track slick with snow, through air so cold it hurt, and into the lights of the cameras stationed precisely to capture an iconic Olympic moment such as this. By the time the glaring lights hit him, he knew he had become the first American man to win an Olympic medal in singles luge. He ended up with silver, just behind surprise winner David Gleirscher of Austria. “It’s crazy,” Mazdzer said. “Everything’s the same until you come up that fourth run … You’ve been working your entire life for it. It’s awesome to share that with everyone.” He tore off his facemask, leaped off the track and hurtled around a volunteer toward his cheering section. Even on a snowy Sunday night that felt like 5 below at its balmiest moments, that section was full of friends, family and teammates. Women’s luger Erin Hamlin, the American flag bearer in the opening ceremonies, brought a flag to Mazdzer’s race, too.

Rally over Finns extends streak of opening wins

I am stumbling through,” said Mazdzer, who made some equipment changes that helped him to a better result in his last race before heading to PyeongChang, where he finished three hundredths of a second away from the gold medal.

“I don’t even care,” he said. On that darkest of his luging days, Mazdzer said, he couldn’t have expected what was coming. “This,” Mazdzer said, “is a blinding light at the end of the tunnel.” CHELSEA JANES (THE WASHINGTON POST)

U.S. WOMEN’S HOCKEY Finland’s goaltender, Noora Raty, saw Hilary Knight with the puck on her stick and moved to defend the dangerous American. Knight passed the puck, Kendall Coyne scored the go-ahead goal at 11:29 of the second period on a one-timer and the U.S. women’s hockey team rallied to beat Finland 3-1 on Sunday to remain perfect in Olympic openers. “Knighter got there out of the corner; I need to commit to her because she’s the best shot in the world,” Raty said. “So for once she actually passed, and hats off to Coyner. She went top shelf. Really nice goal.” Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Dani Cameranesi also scored as the Americans improved to 6-0 when opening an Olympic tournament. The U.S. improved to 7-0 against Finland in the Olympics, although the world’s third-ranked team made the defending world champions work hard in a chippy game. Venla Hovi scored on a wrist shot from the slot with 5.8 seconds left in the first period, giving the Finns the lead. But U.S. goalie Maddie Rooney, 20, made 23 saves in her debut. She was at her best in the third, when the U.S. killed two penalties while being outshot 10-8 by Finland.

he pulled off the very trick — a double cork 1440 — that put him in intensive care in October. “I mean, he just knocked it out of the park,” White’s coach, J.J. Thomas, said Saturday, looking back on last month’s run. “Bottom of the ninth, bases loaded.” But in snowboarding, perfection is as controversial as it is rare. That moment, which vaulted White into the Winter Olympics, has followed him to PyeongChang, where other snowboarders have taken issue with the sport’s judging, saying that White is shown favoritism. In other words, they said, the six judges who graded White’s run in Colorado weren’t doing the right thing. Several of them will judge the event in South Korea. “I have openly said [to the judges], this is not what you

Aimee Fuller said in several British papers. “Shaun starts at the top and they deduct his points.” Snowboarding judges tend to adjust their scoring from event to event, like teachers grading their classroom on a curve. “We’re ranking the riders and putting a number to it,” said Tom Zikas, a California-based X Games judge. In his eyes, White’s run last month fell short of a 100. Men’s qualification rounds begin tonight (11:30, NBCSN). White is competing with James and Japan’s Ayumu Hirano, who several weeks ago landed backto-back 1440s for the first time in history. The X Games judges scored him a 99.0. “That,” snowboarder Rakai Tait of New Zealand said, “was as close to perfect as you can get.”

Don’t be afraid to level up

‘Education deserts’ limit 41 million

Think it’s time for that raise? With help from the pros, you’re ready to ask for it.

1. Don’t be afraid to ask A lot of people undervalue themselves in the workplace, or are too terrified to ask for any kind of salary increase. This kind of thinking can leave a lot of money on the table. “My clients typically wait

longer to ask for a raise than they have to, because they keep hoping their work will speak for itself,” says Jean Stafford, a McLean, Va.-based executive coach who works predominantly with midcareer women. “And it does not. You don’t get anything you don’t ask for. My rule to my clients is to ask a lot for a lot.”

2. Know your environment It’s important to understand the operations of your company for everyday work, but especially when it comes to salary increases. Does it consider raises only at certain times of the year, or at certain points in budgetary cycles? Is there a set process you have to follow when requesting a raise? Take your company culture into account when you time your proposal. For example, “A familyowned company may value the loyalty of its employees — asking for a raise before you’ve been there a while may not go over so well,” says Mel Hennigan, vice president of people at Arlington’s Symplicity and a member of the Society for Human Resource Management’s Talent Acquisition Panel. “But in a performance or meritocracy type of culture,

CAREERS Feel like you’ve been a superstar at work lately — but aren’t seeing any kind of monetary reward? It might be time to ask for a raise. That thought may make your palms sweat. Or maybe it inspires you to break out the spreadsheets to demonstrate your worth. Whether asking for a raise makes you feel nervous or fired up, it’s a process that requires preparation and finesse. “You can’t just walk in the door and say, ‘I’m a wonderful person, I work hard, I like it here, and I’d like a raise,’ ” says Stanley B. Corey, managing director at United Capital Financial Advisors in Great Falls, Va., who advises clients on these kinds of financial matters that impact their long-term goals. We spoke with some local experts to get their top tips that could (literally) pay off when asking for a raise.

as soon as you demonstrate what you’re bringing to the table is worth more to the company, you can make that ask.”

3. Prepare your case You need to be able to prove your worth when you sit down with your boss. Gather any statistics you have related to your achievements: sales figures, website traffic, media mentions and the like. Show what you’ve accomplished, the skills you bring to the

table and how you’ve benefited the organization. “You put yourself at an advantage when you’ve already put the ball over the goal line,” Stafford says. “You brought a big project in on time and on budget, or you’ve taken on something no one else was willing to do.” But don’t spend too much time looking backward. “What happened in the past is in the past,” Hennigan says. “You want to talk CONTINUED ON PAGE 20

According to a report released this month by the Urban Institute think tank, 41 million adults in America live in an “education desert,” defined as a place where there are either no colleges within 25 miles or just a single community college. Of those people, 3.1 million also lack access to high-speed internet. These dual barriers to higher education disproportionately affect Native Americans. While only 1.3 percent of the U.S. population lives in a complete education desert, nearly 12 percent of Native Americans contend with no access to college, according to the report. “This study demonstrates what many Native Americans, rural Americans, and other Americans living in education deserts already knew: … As long as broadband access depends on geography, place still plays an important role in access to higher education,” the report said.

about what you’re going to do in the future and use the past to help substantiate that.”

Cold, hard cash is always nice. But there are lots of ways to increase your compensation. Maybe extra vacation days or more flex time would boost your well-being and cut down your commuting costs. Or a bonus plan could create parameters for more money down the road. “A pay raise doesn’t have to be in your paycheck,” Corey says. “Look for the types of things that would make your work environment better or would make you happier.”

An in-person meeting is the best option when asking for a raise. Practicing your pitch ahead of time can help things go more smoothly. “I ask my clients to write a script,” Stafford says. “It becomes a way of helping them prepare.” The right attitude also increases your chances of success. Confidence and competence are good, demands are not. “Your sincerity can make all the difference in the world,” Hennigan says. “You want to be thoughtful,

4. Ask the right way

6. Be able to take no for an answer These steps should help improve your chances of getting a raise.

But even if you’ve followed the advice to the letter, your boss still might say no for all kinds of reasons. If the reason is legitimate, don’t take it personally. “Many women tend to take a no as meaning ‘I don’t like you and I don’t like that you’re asking me,’ ” Stafford says. “I’m continuously amazed at what a tripwire that is for women. But at the end of the day, it’s a business decision that your boss makes.” Keep your cool, and look at a no as an opportunity to revisit the topic. “It could be something that’s potentially only time or circumstance bound, so you want to leave it well,” Hennigan says. “You want your boss to remember your conversation favorably and leave that door open.” BETH LUBERECKI (FOR EXPRESS)

Real flowers in Alexandra Mudry-Till’s garden inspire the sugar versions that top Buttercream Bakeshop’s cakes.

This decorator makes the cake Position: Lead decorator and partner, Buttercream Bakeshop

What she does Many mornings for Alexandra Mudry-Till start with a trip outside her home to her flower garden, where she prunes, waters and generally checks in on her little muses. Then she heads back into her kitchen to recreate what she sees. Mudry-Till is a lead decorator and partner at Shaw’s Buttercream Bakeshop. Her specialty? The time-consuming sugar flowers that top cakes for weddings

and other special occasions. Making sugar flowers is a craft that calls for mounds of patience and a delicate touch. An average rose can have up to 30 individual petals; one flower can take days to perfect. Mudry-Till plays a role in decorating 20 to 30 cakes on any given weekday. She isn’t much involved in the production of things like cookies, bars and other sweet treats customers see in the shop’s display case — except for those pretty macaroons, which she makes from start to finish. Mudry-Till is often responsible for cakes that people will enjoy

on very important days, like weddings or big celebrations. She says it’s both “terrifying and wonderful” to bring a client’s dream cake to life. “It’s so amazing how different interpretations can be of [one] concept,” she says.

Big news in small bites. nation + world

Top stories from across the country and around the globe.

How she got the job As a child in Pleasantville, N.Y., Mudry-Till says she was always doing one of two things: cooking or acting. But when the time came to start applying to college, her parents said she had to get a “regular” degree. CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

Still, when she packed her bags for Catholic University, she brought her madeleine pan and cooked the spongy cookies in the dorms so often it became a running joke. After completing her degree in D.C., she headed to New York City and began waitressing, picking up office jobs and auditioning on the side. It wasn’t long before she says she began to feel “a little disheartened.” “The only thing that sort of kept me happy during that whole time was continuing to cook and bake,” she says. “It was something I had always loved.” Mudry-Till began her yearlong

culinary school journey at the Culinary Institute of America in 2008, and when she finished, she knew two things for certain: She wanted to work in a bakery, and she wanted that bakery to be in D.C. She maintained that dream as various jobs took her around the world. Ironically, Mudry-Till was let go from her post in Italy the same day that a headhunter reached out to her with a job with the D.C. area’s Neighborhood Restaurant Group in 2010. That’s how she met her now-partner in Buttercream, Tiffany MacIsaac, who then ran the pastry program for NRG’s 14 properties. Mudry-Till worked closely with MacIsaac at Buzz Bakeshop, where the two women expanded and experimented with their

wedding program. MacIsaac and Mudry-Till whipped up a separate concept within Buzz Bakery that eventually became Buttercream Bakeshop.

Who would want this job? To be successful at any bakery, Mudry-Tull says you should be creative, malleable and comfortable with constant change. “It’s a lot of guessing,” she says. “It’s a lot of trying out new techniques and failing.” She says in acting, she learned that you often have to try a new way of conveying a line or an action, and sometimes it just doesn’t work. “You have to learn and fail and move on,” she says.

How can you get the job? A pastry program like the one

“Try some different things. You don’t necessarily know what you’ll end up loving.” ALEXANDRA MUDRY-TILL, on why it’s important to work in a variety of kinds of restaurants and bakeries

Mudry-Till completed at CIA will teach you the techniques you need, but at a faster pace than you might expect. “You have such a small amount of time in culinary school to learn a lot,” she says. Additionally, practical time in

any kitchen is invaluable. “I’m so happy that I worked in restaurants first,” Mudry-Till says. “It made me learn a sense of urgency that you cannot learn just in bakeries. Try some different things. You don’t necessarily know what you’ll end up loving.” And when you show up for that interview at your dream bakery, Mudry-Till’s No. 1 tip is to be honest about what you want out of your new job. If you’re working the register, but dream of experimenting in the kitchen, make that clear. “If you’re coming in at one position but you’re seeking something else, I think be direct and honest about that in your interview so that everybody’s on the same page,” she says.

The pretentious clan in ‘Here and Now’ makes the show hard to watch TV REVIEW HBO’s dysfunctional family drama “Here and Now” (9 p.m. Sundays) is a dreadful misfire from “Six Feet Under” and “True Blood” creator Alan Ball, about a family with many first-world problems. In four episodes made available for review, the show rummages through a mixed bag of themes, one of which appears to be an indictment of the performative cultural correctness that sets people off nowadays. “Here and Now” centers on middle-aged Portlanders Audrey Bayer and Greg Boatwright (Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins) and their children. Audrey is a lawyer who devoted her career to a nonprofit, while Greg is a pasthis-prime philosophy professor. As young parents, Audrey and Greg adopted three children — a daughter, Ashley (Jerrika Hinton), from Liberia; a son, Duc

(Raymond Lee), from Vietnam; and another son, Ramon (Daniel Zovatto), from Colombia. The three siblings, now adults, regard their parents’ magnanimous notion of a multiracial family with resentment, as if they were chosen to be prop pieces in Audrey and Greg’s overt display of virtue. Whatever truth there is in that, it also seems like an especially cold way to get to know a family. There’s also the youngest Bayer-Boatwright sibling, Kristen (Sosie Bacon). She is Audrey and Greg’s only biological child — a precociously intelligent high school junior who’s up to no good. As Audrey inflicts a 60th birthday party upon Greg, who only hours earlier was cavorting with a prostitute, a viewer realizes that the Bayer-Boatwrights are yet another unlikable representation of progressive, upper-middleclass life, recalling the lingering weaknesses of Ball’s screenplay for 1999’s “American Beauty,” with its relentless reminders of suburban moral rot. Then Greg’s party toast is

interrupted when Ramon suffers what appears to be a psychotic episode, linked to the mysterious apparition of the numbers “11/11.” (The last thing “Here and Now” needs is a “Leftovers”like enigma to decrypt, but here it comes, full of phony portent.) Audrey and Greg take their son to a psychiatrist, Dr. Farid Shokrani (Peter Macdissi). This is where “Here and Now” improves, as we follow the doctor home and meet his wife, Minou (Necar Zadegan), and their gender-fluid teenage son, Navid

(Marwan Salama). The Shokrani household is simply more interesting: Farid, bearing scars from a childhood marred by the Iranian revolution of the 1970s, has all but rejected his Muslim faith, while Minou wants to deepen hers and Navid wears a hijab at home (with smoky-eye makeup). But after four episodes, there’s no indication that “Here and Now” will get better or worse. It just kind of sits there, surrounded in snide dialogue and hollow gestures of concern.

A CNN story said that she would be “favored to win gold” in diplomacy. And the dictator’s sister was applauded on Twitter for giving Vice President Mike Pence the side eye. The attention prompted Buzzfeed to run its own take: “PSA: Kim Jong Un’s Sister Is Not Your New Fave Shade Queen. She’s A Garbage Monster.”

Idris Elba on Saturday proposed to girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre during a London screening of his latest movie. The Rio Cinema shared the news on its Twitter, writing, “Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie.” A fan at the screening tweeted a video of the proposal.

Kim Cattrall lashed out Saturday at Sarah Jessica Parker after her former “Sex and the City” co-star sent her condolences last week over the death of Cattrall’s brother. “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” Cattrall wrote on Instagram. “You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.” Cattrall has cited a feud with Parker as her reason for never agreeing to a third “Sex and the City” film. Parker denied these claims. (AP)
