Man’s tattoo is perfect for both fans and haters of Tom Brady

You can still pass “Go” and collect $200 on the Monopoly board, but you soon won’t be able to do it with the thimble game piece. Voters have rejected the thimble, an integral part of the game since 1935. The move is part of a campaign to select the next generation of game pieces; hashtags and emojis, for example, could replace cats and dogs.

Acclaimed chef Lee is coming to D.C.

Chef Edward Lee looks forward to cooking at the second Succotash he’s opening, in Penn Quarter.

I see a great opportunity to …” The chef trails off, momentarily lost in thought. “Selfishly,” he adds, “I want to compete in a bigger market.” “I’m not leaving Louisville. We have a beautiful home. I’ve got three restaurants here,” says Lee, whose third establishment, the Whiskey Dry, is expected to open soon. “We’ll be back. My daughter’s starting horseback

riding lessons in the spring. We’re going to keep our identity here, and we’re going to keep our home and everything.” But at the same time, the chef can’t ignore the opportunities that await him in the D.C. area, where he and Knead Hospitality + Design opened Succotash at National Harbor in 2015, the first restaurant Lee opened outside of Louisville. A second Succotash, a larger and grander version located in the historic Equitable Bank Building in Penn Quarter, is expected to open in June or July. Lee says Washington, with its many international influences, will prepare him for the next chapter in his career. “I don’t think that my journey’s over. I don’t think I want to be known as that guy that put kimchi and collards together and that’s it,” Lee said. “I think there’s more out there. I think there’s more to discover and more to do. And to me, D.C. is a perfect place for that. It is so international. It is so on the cutting edge.” Tim Carman (The washington post)

the district Edward Lee, the Brooklyn-born chef who found his culinary voice in Louisville, plans to move his family and his base of operations to D.C. this spring. He expects to be a semi-permanent fixture on the D.C. scene by May 1. Lee cites many reasons for the move — his affection for the East Coast, the thriving restaurant scene in D.C., his desire to cook daily at the forthcoming Succotash in Penn Quarter — but he’s also just ready for a change of venue. For more than a dozen years, Lee has been one of the most recognizable chefs in Louisville, racking up an impressive six James Beard Award nominations for his work at 610 Magnolia, a modern Southern restaurant. “Obviously the convenient answer to this question is, I’m moving to D.C. because of business,” Lee said. “Because I see a great business opportunity and

Immigrants send a message with strike


Bowser lets paid family leave bill take effect

Workers in D.C. and across the U.S. protest administration’s policy SARAH L. VOISIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

THE DISTRICT Upscale D.C. restaurants canceled reservations. A ubiquitous fast-casual chain closed due to staffing shortages. And teachers posted pictures on social media of empty classrooms. Immigrants across the country went on strike Thursday to highlight their economic importance to a new administration that has taken a hard-line stance on immigration policies. The strike was intended to span across all businesses, but it’s the restaurant industry — where immigrants make up nearly 23 percent of the national workforce, according to data compiled by the Institute for Immigration Research at George Mason University — that seemed most affected. Scores of restaurants nationwide shuttered for the day. A handful of day-care centers and D.C. charter schools also closed. Leandra Gonzalez, a teacher at D.C.’s Paul Public Charter School, posted a picture of her empty English as a Second Language class Thursday. She said students are fearful of what the new presidency means for them and many of the students’ parents asked beforehand if they could participate in the strike.


Other restaurants opted to stay open with limited menus due to staffing shortages. Many restaurants in D.C. still paid their employees if they decided to strike. It’s unclear how many people participated in the strike across the country, but Clarissa Martinez-de-Castro, deputy vice president at the National Council of La Raza — a national Latino advocacy organization — said the protest sent a strong message. “In a time when the administration doesn’t seem to see anything positive about the immigrant community,” Martinez said, “having small-business owners, chefs and their workers challenge that notion and give voice to the very real ways immigrants contribute to society is very significant.”

The organizers behind the Women’s March on Washington are calling for a general strike next month to show the country what a day without women would look like. The strike is planned for March 8. “In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer A Day Without A Woman,” a statement from the organizers read. “We ask: do businesses support our communities, or do they drain our communities? Do they strive for gender equity or do they support the policies and leaders that perpetuate oppression?” The “A Day Without a Woman” strike follows the “Day Without Immigrants” strike Thursday in D.C. and across the country.



Alfredo Castro, 29, of D.C., shouts Thursday during the “Day Without Immigrants” march. Castro is from Peru but has been in the U.S. 16 years.

“I made sure the students understood that it’s not about skipping school and having the day off,” Gonzalez said. “It’s about having the school understand what it would be like if they weren’t there.” In the Washington region, where about 48 percent of people working in the restaurant industry are foreign-born, dozens of restaurants closed. Food service in the U.S. Senate operated on reduced hours. Sweetgreen closed its 20 or so fast-casual salad outposts in the region. And celebrity chef Jose Andres — a Spanish immigrant who is in a legal battle with Trump after backing out of a contract to open a restaurant in D.C.’s Trump International Hotel — closed a number of his restaurants in the region.

More than a half-million workers in D.C. will get up to eight weeks of paid family leave under a law that Mayor Muriel Bowser has allowed to take effect without her signature. Bowser opposed the paid family leave bill and considered vetoing it, calling it a burden on businesses because it imposes a new tax. Bowser said in a letter to the council Wednesday that she won’t veto the bill but hopes to work with lawmakers to address its shortcomings. The law still has to survive a review by Congress.

Police: 5 charged with murder in death of teen Police have charged five people with murder in connection with the death of a Maryland teen who was reported missing in December. Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler said Thursday that two adults — Jose Ivan Castillo Rivas, 18, and Wilmer A. Sanchez Serrano, 21 — and three 17-year-olds have been charged with murder in the death of Damaris Reyes Rivas, 15. The medical examiner ruled that Reyes Rivas died from trauma to her upper body.

Of 409 exams sent for retesting, three-fourths for pregnant women THE DISTRICT District health officials fumbled Zika testing for hundreds of residents last year, including two pregnant women who were incorrectly told they did not have the virus when in fact they were infected. The mistakes, made public Thursday by city officials, have prompted officials to redo more than 400 tests for the Zika virus, including for nearly 300 pregnant women who may have mistakenly been told they didn’t have the mosquito-borne viral infection. The tests involve specimens collected from men and women between July 14 and Dec. 14, 2016, that were analyzed by the District’s public health lab. The lab processed 409 Zika tests, including 294 for pregnant women. The specimens from the pregnant women were sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for retesting; the remaining samples for 115 nonpregnant women and men have been sent to other public health labs approved by the CDC, said Jenifer Smith, head of the D.C. Department of Forensic Sciences.

Zika tests botched at D.C. health lab

There have been more than 5,000 Zika cases reported in the U.S. mainland, including 31 in D.C.

So far, officials have received 62 results from the CDC: 60 were negative but two tested positive for Zika. The health-care providers for those two pregnant women were notified Wednesday. Officials declined to say whether they have already given birth. Officials said they expect to have results for all retested specimens within three to four weeks. The District appears to be the only jurisdiction in the country with this problem. “There doesn’t seem to be the kind of widespread problem with [this test] at the other public health labs,” said Wendi Kuhnert-Tallman, who heads the CDC’s Zika lab task force.

GOP unveils health outline POLITICS Top House Republicans unveiled a rough sketch of a massive health-care overhaul to rankand-file lawmakers Thursday, but a lack of detail, cost estimates and GOP unity left unresolved the problem that’s plagued them for years: What’s the party’s plan and can Congress pass it? At a closed-door meeting in the Capitol basement, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and other party leaders described a broad vision for voiding much of former President Barack Obama’s 2010 statute and replacing it with conservative policies. It features a revamped Medicaid program for the poor, tax breaks to help people pay doctors’ bills and federally subsidized state pools to assist those with costly medical conditions in buying insurance. Lawmakers called the ideas options, and many were controversial. One being pushed by Ryan and other leaders would replace the tax increases in Obama’s law with new levies on the value of some employerprovided health plans — a political no-fly zone for Republicans

plan, and there are no guarantees of success in replacing a law that has extended coverage to 20 million Americans. “We’re not going to get out of this overnight,” Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., said of the effort. There are certainly clashes ahead this time over crucial specifics that could jeopardize the entire effort. And lawmakers said they were awaiting official cost estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which could ignite other battles if the price tag is high. Obama’s law levied $1.1 trillion in taxes over a decade to finance its expanded coverage to millions. GOP leaders said some or all of those taxes could be repealed, with the revenue replaced by a new tax on health care that employees receive at work. The tax penalties Obama’s law levies on people who don’t buy insurance would be abolished, as would federal subsidies for most people buying coverage on the online exchanges the statute established. They would be replaced by tax credits for people who don’t have job- or government-provided health coverage and tax-advantaged health savings accounts. Republicans said decisions on amounts have not been made. ALAN FRAM (AP)

Flynn told FBI sanctions were not discussed NATIONAL SECURITY Former national security adviser Michael Flynn denied to FBI agents in an interview last month that he had discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the U.S. before President Trump took office, contradicting the contents of intercepted communications collected by intelligence agencies, current and former U.S. officials said. The Jan. 24 interview potentially puts Flynn in legal jeopardy, as lying to the FBI is a felony, but any decision to prosecute would ultimately lie with the Justice Department. Some officials said bringing a case could prove difficult in part because it may attempt to parse the definition of sanctions. Trump asked for Flynn’s resignation Monday following reports that revealed Flynn had misled Vice President Pence in denying the substance of the call. Senior intelligence officials who have reviewed the phone call thought Flynn’s statements to the Russian ambassador were inappropriate, if not illegal, because he suggested that the Kremlin could expect a reprieve from the sanctions. Nonetheless, officials knew that seeking a case against Flynn for violating an obscure 1799 statute known as the Logan Act — which bars private citizens from interfering in diplomatic disputes — would be legally and political daunting.

Third suspect arrested in Kim Jong Nam’s death


‘Sell by’ labels will get easier to understand

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA Malaysian authorities announced two more arrests Thursday in the death of the North Korean leader’s half brother, whose apparent assassination this week unleashed a wave of speculation: a pair of female assailants, a broad-daylight killing and a dictator-sibling out for blood. Investigators were still piecing together details of the case, including the assumption that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dispatched a hit squad to kill his estranged half brother, Kim Jong Nam. He had lived abroad for years, aware he was a hunted man. Three suspects — two women and a man — were arrested separately Wednesday and Thursday. The women were identified using surveillance videos from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, where Kim Jong Nam, 45 or 46, suddenly fell ill Monday morning. Malaysian officials said he died on the way to a hospital after telling medical workers at the airport that he had been sprayed with a chemical. Multiple South Korean media reports said two women believed to be North Korean agents killed him with some kind of poison before fleeing in a taxi. One of the female suspects had

The other woman held an Indonesian passport and was arrested Thursday. Police said they were working to determine if the IDs were genuine. It was not immediately clear if the women were believed to be the actual assassins. Indonesian diplomats met with the second suspect and confirmed she is an Indonesian citizen, officials said. Authorities identified her as Siti Aisyah, 25. Police also said they had detained a Malaysian man believed

to be the boyfriend of the Indonesian suspect on Thursday. Medical workers completed an autopsy on Kim Jong Nam, but the results have not been released. The findings could reveal whether he was poisoned. North Korea objected to the autopsy but Malaysia went ahead with it anyway because the North did not submit a formal protest. The National Intelligence Service said North Korea had been trying for five years to kill Kim Jong Nam, and that he had sent a letter to Kim Jong Un in April 2012, begging for the lives of himself and his family.

Most consumers don’t know exactly what “sell by” labels mean. But after 40 years of letting us guess, the grocery industry is moving to end the confusion. On Wednesday, the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the two largest such trade groups, announced that they’ve adopted standardized, voluntary regulations to clarify what product date labels mean. Manufacturers now use any of 10 label phrases — from “expires on” to “better if used by” — but will be urged to use only “Use By” and “Best If Used By.” Experts say this should reduce the amount of food tossed prematurely.

China drug ban helps U.S. fight opioid epidemic HEALTH So deadly it’s considered a terrorist threat, carfentanil has been legal in China — until now. Beijing is banning carfentanil and three similar drugs as of March 1, China’s Ministry of Public Security said Thursday, closing a major regulatory loophole in the fight to end America’s opioid epidemic. “It shows China’s attitude as a responsible big country,” said Yu Haibin, the director of the Office of the National Narcotics Control Committee. “It will be a strong deterrent.” China said the March 1 ban will also apply to carfentanil’s lesspotent cousins furanyl fentanyl, acryl fentanyl and valeryl fentanyl. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration called China’s move a potential “game-changer” that is likely to have a big impact in the U.S., where opioid demand has driven the proliferation of a new class of deadly drugs. Legally used as an anesthetic for large animals, carfentanil burst into the North American drug supply last summer, causing hundreds of unsuspecting drug users to overdose. The DEA confirmed more than 400 seizures of carfentanil across eight U.S. states from July through October. So lethal that an amount smaller than a poppy seed can kill a person, carfentanil was researched for years as a chemical weapon and used by Russian forces to subdue Chechen separatists at a Moscow theater in 2002.

Trump airs grievances POLITICS

Trump wants billionaire to review intelligence President Trump is considering tapping New York financier Stephen A. Feinberg to lead a broad review of U.S. intelligence agencies, but said Thursday that such a move might not be necessary once his team is fully in place. Feinberg — a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management, a firm with $30 billion in investments — is worth about $1.27 billion, according to Forbes. Earlier Thursday, administration officials said an arrangement with Feinberg had not been finalized, but they characterized him as someone Trump greatly respects and admires. (TWP/AP)

about whether his campaign had contact with Russia and grew testy as reporters pushed him for a yes-or-no answer. He said he certainly hadn’t and that he was not aware of such contacts during the campaign. The news conference was ostensibly billed as a chance for Trump to announce his new pick to head the Labor Department, Alexander Acosta, after Andrew Puzder, his original choice, withdrew from consideration Wednesday amid mounting opposition on Capitol Hill. But for one hour and 17 minutes, the president took aim at everything from “illegal immigrant violence” to the “criminal leaks” within his intelligence community. During the news conference,

Trump went on to say that he had been trying to set up a meeting with Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., a CBC member, but claimed Cummings had balked at following through. The CBC later tweeted its side: “Hi, @ realDonaldTrump. We’re the CBC. We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back. Sad!” (TWP)

Trump alternated between showering the media with scorn and taking a more playful tone. Trump repeatedly lambasted the “fake news” media, while promoting some dubious claims and fake news of his own. Pressed on his incorrect assertion that he had the largest margin of victory in the electoral college since President Ronald Reagan, Trump blamed faulty facts. “I was given that information,” he said. “Well, I don’t know, I was given that information.” Yet at one point, Trump insisted he was enjoying himself. “I’m not ranting and raving — I love this,” he said. “I’m having a good time doing this.” A S H L E Y PA R K ER A N D J O H N WA G N ER (THE WASHINGTON POST)


POLITICS President Trump on Thursday aired his grievances against the news media, the intelligence community and his detractors generally in a sprawling, stream-ofconsciousness news conference. “To be honest, I inherited a mess,” Trump said. “It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.” Yet moments later, the president seemed to acknowledge the widespread reports of turbulence and upheaval emanating out of his West Wing, only to claim that his White House — which so far has been marred by staff infighting, a controversial travel ban, false statements and myriad leaks — was operating seamlessly. “I turn on the TV, open the newspapers and I see stories of chaos — chaos,” he said in news conference that lasted more than an hour and was at times rambling and combative. “Yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can’t get my Cabinet approved.” Asked about recent reports that Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser who resigned Monday evening, had improperly discussed Russian sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. before Trump was sworn in, the president defended Flynn as a “fine person,” saying he had done nothing wrong in engaging the Russian envoy. But, Trump said, Flynn had erred by misleading government officials, including Vice President Pence, about his conversations, which is why the president ultimately demanded his resignation. “He didn’t tell the vice president of the United States the facts,” Trump said. “And then he didn’t remember.

nation+world Shiite shrine targeted in Pakistan’s deadliest attack since late 2014 SEHWAN, PAKISTAN An Islamic State suicide bomber struck inside a famed shrine in southern Pakistan on Thursday, killing at least 75 people in the deadliest attack in the country in more than two years. The bomber entered the main hall of the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan and detonated his payload amid dozens

of worshippers, according to three security officials, who said at least 20 women and nine children were among the dead. Fazal Palejo, a senior health official in Sindh province, confirmed the toll. The Islamic State group claimed the attack in a statement circulated by its Aamaq news agency, saying it had targeted a “Shiite gathering.” Raja Somro, who witnessed the attack, told a local TV network that hundreds of people were performing a spiritual dance

known as the Dhamal when the bomber struck. “I saw bodies everywhere. I saw bodies of women and children,” he said. Local TV showed graphic footage of the aftermath of the blast, with wounded worshippers crying out for help and the floors covered with shoes, blood and body parts. Ghazanfar Shah, the custodian of the site, said security was lax at the shrine, which is entered through two gold-plated doors. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

Court: Snuggies are not clothes


UN and Arab leaders endorse 2-state solution The United Nations and the Arab League on Thursday issued a joint statement in support of the establishment of a Palestinian state. The statement came a day after President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to endorse the two-state solution as the preferred outcome of peace talks. U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley then said Thursday that the U.S. absolutely supports a two-state solution, appearing to backpedal on Trump’s comments. (AP)

vowed that security forces would track down the perpetrators of the attack. “Each drop of the nation’s blood shall be avenged, and avenged immediately,” Pakistan’s army chief, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, said in a statement. “No more restraint for anyone.” Thursday’s attack was the deadliest in Pakistan since Dec. 16, 2014, when militants assaulted an army-run school in Peshawar, killing 154 people, mostly schoolchildren.

BAGHDAD | Passers-by look at the wreckage Thursday after a car bomb exploded at an auto dealership, killing at least 55 people and wounding more than 60, Iraqi officials said.

Max Scherzer’s knuckle is almost healed, but he was limited in the Nats’ workout Thursday.

NBA All-Star weekend


Knuckle won’t play ball Max Scherzer is in doubt for opening day “It’d be unfair while he recovers from a stress fracture for me to even NATIONALS The knuckle at the base of Max Scherzer’s right ring finger became the most analyzed joint in the Nationals’ clubhouse Thursday, knocking Stephen Strasburg’s right elbow out of the spotlight and delivering an unexpected blow to the early-season stability of the team’s rotation. The most recent MRI results of Scherzer’s finger showed the stress fracture that developed late last season is, as he put it, “essentially healed.” But the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner was not ready to pitch off a mound during the first official workout of the spring in West Palm Beach, Fla. He might not be ready for opening day, either.

Scherzer on Thursday was relegated to a high-intensity game of catch with rehabbing lefty Tim Collins — the only other pitcher in camp who cannot participate fully. As an uninhibited Strasburg threw change-ups and sliders and honed two-seam fastballs, Scherzer was heartened by the fact that he could throw a baseball. He spent the winter throwing tennis and lacrosse balls to keep his arm in shape, because the baseball was too big for his injured finger to grip. He modified his grip again Thursday. “Right now it’s just getting back out there, throwing a baseball and getting my arm in shape,” Scherzer said.


project or even talk about that.” MAX SCHERZER, on starting for the Nationals on opening day. The reigning National League Cy Young winner said he has no idea how much he’ll be able to do by April 3.

He first felt trouble after a start against the Orioles on Aug. 25. Doctors diagnosed him with a finger sprain. Four days later, when he warmed up ahead of his next start, Scherzer found he could pitch through the pain. With the Nationals headed to the playoffs, he decided to do so. Put under more pressure, the sprain turned into a stress fracture. “That’s just the cost of doing business,” Scherzer said.

Scherzer expected the sprain to heal with regular rest in the offseason. But the symptoms didn’t improve by December, when another MRI revealed the fracture. A month later, it still hadn’t healed, and he backed out of the World Baseball Classic. Until Scherzer can grip a baseball properly, he cannot resume his usual spring training regimen. Until he can start throwing like he normally does, he can’t build the arm strength he needs. Scherzer said he’s prepared for an expedited throwing program, which could get him ready for opening day April 3. A slow-moving program, started a week from now, would probably still have him ready sometime in April. If Scherzer can’t pitch by opening day, Strasburg — who threw for 10 minutes in the bullpen — would likely assume those duties.

Trimble’s swagger back before crucial road test Terrapins could take top spot in the Big Ten with a win at Wisconsin

“The hatred, it’s almost a hostile environment. I’m sure there’s places in Afghanistan more tranquil than this.”

Melo Trimble scored a careerhigh 32 points at Northwestern by driving at will.

NAM Y. HUH (AP)

COLLEGE BASKETBALL The only time Maryland guard Melo Trimble didn’t have an answer Wednesday night came after he poured in a careerhigh 32 points in a 74-64 win at Northwestern. A reporter asked him why he had historically played so well against the Wildcats, and Trimble paused and shook his head. He’s averaged 23 points in three victories, but the first two performances weren’t the same as Wednesday night. That masterpiece stood alone. So it wasn’t surprising that, before Maryland (22-4, 10-3 Big Ten) visits Wisconsin (21-4, 10-2) on Sunday (1 p.m., CBS), Trimble shrugged off any thought of what happened there a year ago, when he nailed a 25-foot 3-pointer to beat the Badgers on their home court. Sunday promises to bring the biggest game yet for the Terrapins this season, but Trimble isn’t relying on past success against Wisconsin for confidence. “Every team is going to be different because they’re going to have a different scouting report on you,” Trimble said. “I don’t know who’s going to guard me, I don’t know how the game is going to turn out, but I know we’re going to play our best.”


With swagger bolstered by cutting his hair and shaving his goatee, Trimble pulled himself out of his most difficult shooting slump of the season Wednesday. He went 12-for-17 from the field and 4-of-5 on 3-pointers, but did most of his damage in the lane. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon had taken stock of the buzz circulating around Northwestern’s program this week, which only heightened as the Wildcats

inched closer to their first NCAA Tournament berth with a win over Wisconsin last Sunday. With its win Wednesday, Maryland tightened the race for the regular-season Big Ten title, moving into a tie with Purdue (21-5, 10-3) for second place. The Terps entered Thursday a half-game behind Wisconsin, and a win Sunday could put them atop the league standings. ROMAN STUBBS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Report: Romo expects release from Cowboys Cowboys QB Tony Romo, who was unable reclaim his starting job from rookie Dak Prescott, expects to be released by Dallas rather than traded, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported Thursday. Romo, who will turn 37 in April, has played in only five games over the last two seasons because of injures. But Werder said Romo believes he can play two or three more years. Given the premium the NFL puts on passers, Romo will draw interest, but his contract could be a stumbling block. Including the 2017 season, Romo has three years left on his deal after signing a six-year extension worth $108 million in 2013. That came with $55 million guaranteed. According to the Star-Telegram, he has a 2017 cap number of $24.7 million, and the team would save $5.1 million in cap space if Romo is traded or released before June 2. He would still count $19.6 million against the cap next season. The Cowboys could also release him and designate him as a post-June 1 cut, spreading the cap hit over 2017 ($10.7 million) and 2018 ($8.9 million). In a radio appearance this week, Dallas owner Jerry Jones deflected questions about Romo. “It’s no secret that I just think so much of him as a person and think so much of him as a player. ... I don’t know how ultimately we will resolve this,” Jones said. CINDY BOREN

Union on Queen THINKSTOCK

Look before you lease Renters should know it takes more than a little cash to move into a new apartment APARTMENT HUNTING So, you recently graduated from college and snagged your first real job. And after living with your parents for a few months and saving a little money, you’re about to strike out on your own and find your first apartment. But are you really ready to sign a lease? Here’s what you need to know first.

Be honest about your needs You should have a list of mandatory features of your new home — among them, perhaps, walking distance to the Metro, a parking spot, laundry on the premises, the number of bedrooms you need and a dishwasher. Make a list of items you don’t need, but would consider a bonus to have: a pet-friendly building, a balcony, an on-site fitness center and wood floors, perhaps. Determine what you can and cannot be flexible on. Use areas where you can be flexible to your advantage: If you’re not worried about alone

time, find a roommate, for example. Consider moving farther from the city for more space. And if you plan to stay a while, you could negotiate a lower rent with a lease term longer than one year.

Be ready to move fast When you find the rental you like best, you should have all the information you will need for an application at your fingertips. Have up to two months’ rent for the security deposit and first month’s rent. You should also be prepared with application fees, which can range from $25 to $100 per adult applicant. If you have no credit history, you may need to ask a parent or a relative to act as a guarantor on the lease. Know who that person is and have them ready to submit an application with you as a co-applicant. Also have on hand a copy of current pay stubs or an offer letter from your employer stating your salary, and one or two personal

Read, then sign Here are some questions you may not think to ask before signing a new lease. N.S.S. What are the rules? Many properties will have regulations on noise control, bringing pets into elevators, using a shared laundry room or putting holes in the walls. Will the locks be changed? It’s a good idea to change the locks before a new tenant moves in. If your landlord isn’t willing to do it, it’s inexpensive to do so with his or her permission. How will rent increases be made? If you were offered a rent special, you should find out whether the rent increase will be based on a percentage of the market rent at the time or the current rent you are paying. The difference can add up to several hundred dollars.

references available for a landlord to contact.

Watch out for rental scams Make sure that if you are considering renting from an independent landlord, you can confirm

that the person you are dealing with is the owner of the home or is someone authorized to work on the owner’s behalf to get the home rented. If you cannot personally view the home you are considering renting, make sure a friend or a family member can see it on your behalf.

Know what’s in your lease Once you are approved to move forward on the lease, take time to review it carefully. Know what you are responsible for concerning maintenance and utilities. If you are renting a single-family house or rowhouse, you will most likely be responsible for tending to the yard and cleaning the gutters. Make sure there is an emergency number in case something breaks and needs to be fixed, like the heating or water units. Take note of how much notice your landlord will give you before increasing the rent, entering the property or putting it on the market when your lease has ended. Nancy Simmons Starrs is founder and president of Apartment Detectives, an area apartment search service.

The Bozzuto Group and nonprofit developer Wesley Housing Development Corporation have opened Union on Queen, a 193-unit apartment community in Arlington. Forty percent of the building’s units are designated for households earning 50 or 60 percent of area median income, which is $108,600. The apartments include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. They have open floor plans, a balcony or terrace, a washer and dryer, walk-in closets and keyless entry. Market-rate rents range from $2,050 for a studio to $3,440 for a two-bedroom unit. Three-bedroom units are available only as affordable housing units, with rent based on renters’ income. Building amenities include bike storage, a fitness center and a rooftop deck with a coffee bar and kitchen. MICHELE LERNER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

‘The Great Wall’

Losing all your senses Absent of logic, ‘A Cure for Wellness’ will make you feel invigorated — and confused FILM REVIEW At nearly 2½ hours long, “A Cure for Wellness” may qualify as the world’s longest, most agonizing teaser. For most of its duration, the gorgeously disturbing new film by Gore Verbinski adamantly refuses to spill its secrets, which continue to mount up behind a dam of mystery so maddeningly impenetrable that it’s a wonder people don’t walk out before the climax. The fact that most of them will not is because, in all likelihood, of Verbinski’s mastery of his medium: in this case, a hybrid stew of psychological thriller and body horror. When the dam finally does burst, it’s like a swollen boil suddenly disgorging its

contents — surprising, messy and painful, but also a huge relief. The film is set in a remote Swiss sanitarium, where a highpowered American financier (Harry Groener) has inexplicably overstayed his two-week spa vacation, prompting one of his underlings (Dane DeHaan) to be sent from New York to retrieve him. When that underling, named Lockhart, arrives, he discovers a facility staffed by Alpine automatons. Lockhart’s plans to grab his boss and head home go awry when he breaks his leg, forcing him to recover in what looks like a cross between an early-20thcentury nursing home and Dracula’s castle. All the patients

‘A Cure for Wellness’ (R, 145 min.) DIRECTOR: Gore Verbinski STARS: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Ivo Nandi IN A NUTSHELL: A young executive goes to retrieve his company’s CEO from an enigmatic wellness center, only to discover its fishy practices.

are superannuated, receiving unspecified “treatments” in a locked wing. Lockhart himself is plagued by hallucinations (or are they?). Despite treatment appearing to consist of nothing more than mineral water, Lockhart descends into a deep fog of befuddlement, even though he eventually, like all the others,

starts to say that he never felt better. Way late in the movie, by the time most thrillers have already begun parceling out a morsel or two of resolution, you will still be scratching your head and wondering just what in God’s name is going on. Holding that tension for so long is a tall order. Not to mention that its setup is starved of logic, the film’s vital oxygen. The problem with “Wellness” is not the temptation to throw in the towel before the finale, or even the finale itself. When the climax does come, it arrives with a bracing blast of campy absurdity so flamboyantly deviant that it glows with a kind of perverse brilliance. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)


The truest ‘American Horror Story,’ if there is one

Ryan Murphy, showrunner of FX’s “American Horror Story,” announced the theme of the series’ forthcoming Season 7 on Wednesday’s “Watch What Happens Live.” “I don’t have a title, but the season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through,” he told host Andy Cohen. When Cohen asked if Donald Trump will be in it, Murphy responded: “Uh, maybe.” (EXPRESS)

“Versace: American Crime Story” adds Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace, Darren Criss as his killer

PG-13, 103 min. 20TH CENTURY FOX

Dane DeHaan’s Lockhart loses his mind in “A Cure for Wellness” and also, it seems, his tooth.

“The Great Wall” arrives with a lot at stake, being the most pricey co-production ever filmed in China. In it, Matt Damon plays a mercenary who ends up defending the Great Wall of China against a bunch of monsters. Cut from the same fantastical cloth as “The Lord of the Rings” and “Game of Thrones,” the movie might have been epic and original, but instead plays out like a re-tread of every effects-heavy film. ANN HORNADAY (TWP)

‘Fist Fight’ R, 91 min.

The jokes in “Fist Fight” — a comedy about a beef between two feuding high school teachers played by Charlie Day and Ice Cube — have all the wit of a punch-drunk palooka. While it tries to show the same brand of gleeful depravity of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the film only ever manages to achieve irritation with the status quo. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (TWP)

Things are a lot easier for Ruth and Seretse when they’re alone.


The Other woman: She’s unwelcome, but not a victim I was 23 before I was the only white person in a room. I was teaching English at a private high school on the West Side of Chicago, one with a student body that was 100 percent African-American. In that dusty, drafty classroom, I was not just a minority, but an only. Still, though I was outnumbered, I outranked the students, and we all knew it. I was the Other, but it was my turf. I thought of that during “A United Kingdom,” the factbased story of Seretse and Ruth Khama (David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike). He is the king of what would become Botswana; she is a British woman who married him in 1948 and came with him to Africa when it became time for him to rule. She is, unsurprisingly, the only white person in the village. Her “welcome” consists in part of Seretse’s sister Naledi (Terry

Pheto) basically telling her to go home, as she is actively unwanted by everyone except Seretse. Ruth is clearly surprised; she assumed that, if she were nice enough, people would like her, despite her skin color. Naledi knows that this is beyond skin; Ruth is also a symbol of centuries of British colonialism. The scene is painful and brutal. What it isn’t is racist. And, no, it’s not “reverse racist,” either. That’s not a thing. Racism is different than bigotry. Bigotry is devaluing someone because of their race or gender or any other

‘A United Kingdom’ (PG-13, 111 min.) DIRECTOR: Amma Asante STARS: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Jack Davenport, Tom Felton IN A NUTSHELL: The fact-based story of Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams, whose unstoppable love defied family, apartheid and empire.

quality that should be marked as “irrelevant” on the “Is this a person?” scale. Racism is codifying that bigotry into law and culture so strongly that it becomes embedded into a broader consciousness so deeply that, even when the overt symbols of racism have fallen away, the implicit bias remains. You can’t see any more Jim Crow-era “whites only” signs, but you can see their shadows if you know where to look. Ruth, the only white person for miles, isn’t a victim of racism when she’s told the color of her skin and the baggage of her culture mean she needs to leave — precisely because she CAN leave. The nature of oppression is that you can’t escape it without the substantial likelihood of grave loss; if fleeing only costs you a plane ticket back to England, you’re not oppressed. You’re uncomfortable. Ruth, in that scene, has a right to be uncomfortable. Being on the receiving end of bigotry, as she is, is neither pleasant nor deserved. But Ruth is hurt by the actions of individuals, not a subjugating system that’s a blend of politics, culture, history and class. Her experience was hurtful, but it wasn’t racism.

Sara Bareilles to star in her Broadway show ‘Waitress’

Update on ‘Love Actually’ characters to air on TV

Sara Bareilles, who composed the songs for Broadway show “Waitress,” will soon star in the musical herself. The singersongwriter of “Brave” and “Love Song” will make her Broadway acting debut on March 31 in the lead role of Jenna Hunterson. She’ll be in the show for 10 weeks until June 11. Bareilles already released her versions of the musical’s songs with “What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress,” including the standout single “She Used to Be Mine.” (AP)

Viewers will find out what happened to the “Love Actually” characters thanks to Richard Curtis, the writer-director of the beloved 2003 feature, who has created a 10-minute reunion film to air as part of Comic Relief’s “Red Nose Day Special” on NBC on May 24. Cast members revisiting their roles from the romantic comedy include Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson. (AP)

The week’s best movie previews

‘All Eyez on Me’

‘Girls Trip’



SUMMARY: Newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. plays (and looks uncannily like) the late rapper Tupac Shakur in this biopic. In the teaser, his mother, Afeni (Danai Gurira), gives advice in voice-over as we see Shakur’s rise to fame, his run-ins with the police and a suggestion of his untimely, too-young end. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

SUMMARY: In a movie that’s sure to give anyone who writes about it apostrophe-induced anxiety attacks, “Girls Trip” follows four friends (Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish) as they head to New Orleans for a sedate, antiques-based vacation. Just kidding: They get really drunk and have a lot of sex. K.P.K.

Sterling is very pleasant, always has a smile on his face, and has words of encouragement for riders daily. He is a special gentleman and has been a blessing to my commute.

@DKELLY94 tweeting about tennis star Genie Bouchard, who made good on her promise after losing a Twitter bet on the Super Bowl and went on a date Wednesday night with 20-year-old fan John Goehrke. They went to a Brooklyn Nets game and afterward Bouchard told TMZ that he was “normal,” and there would “for sure” be a second date.

“Apparently I’ve been shopping in all the wrong places for drugs, and all the right places for candy.”

It’s OK to be nosy.

@ROYKESEY tweeting after President Trump said during his Thursday news conference that our country is “drug-infested,” and that “drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.” His statement led some, such as Twitter user @anchorlines, to ask, “How much does Trump think a candy bar costs?”

The boyfriend admitted to cheating on the young woman more times than he could remember, because he “wasn’t counting.” Internet viewers dubbed the girlfriend “HurtBae,” and rallied in support of her.

Scrabble Grams




AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You mustn’t let yourself be restricted by someone who is new to being the boss. He or she can learn from you, not vice versa. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Tread very lightly when asked to explore a certain situation. You don’t want to put yourself in a dangerous position. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You will want to take someone’s side — as quickly as possible — when you realize he or she is being wrongly singled out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Don’t turn a blind eye to that which is attracting everyone’s attention. You are likely to find it is worth a much closer look.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20) What

comes most naturally to you may not be the best thing to do under current circumstances. Trust a friend to give you other options.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Though you may have been given license to do something others are not allowed to do, be careful not to take things too far. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’re eager to see things develop more quickly, and you’re wondering if there’s something you can do to make that happen. There is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Having accepted an invitation, you may realize that following through will require a sacrifice you’re not willing to make.

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re after a deeper connection with a certain someone, but you may be prevented from reaching out because of a prior commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Trial and error can teach you what you need to know, but you must be prepared to clean up a bit of a mess when all is said and done.



Today in History 1815: The United States and Britain exchange the instruments of ratification for the Treaty of Ghent, ending the War of 1812.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) To get the change you want, you will have to make it happen yourself. Today is the day to make a start. But you needn’t explain yourself to others just yet. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Are you ready to give up something valuable for something even more valuable? Any way you look at it, this trade will be more than fair.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s magazine, The Edit, Kidman described working with Zoe Kravitz on their HBO series “Big Little Lies.” “Well, I knew Zoe because I was engaged to her father,” Kidman said. “It’s all in the family!” Kidman had told Vanity Fair in 2007 that she had gotten engaged between her 2001 divorce from Tom Cruise and her 2006 marriage to Keith Urban. “It just wasn’t right.
