A couple in Lakewood, Colo., say they purchased a 21-year-old box of cereal from a local Walmart, UPI reported Friday. Anthea Carelse took only a couple of bites before noticing something was off with her Quaker granola, but her husband, Josiah, ate an entire bowl — after which the two discovered the box’s expiration date read Feb. 22, 1997. Walmart says it is investigating the incident. (EXPRESS)
Footage of a scantily clad woman riding a white horse has prompted officials to shut down a nightclub in Miami Beach, Fla. A video went viral Thursday night that showed the woman riding the horse inside the club. As the animal moved through the crowded space, it stumbled, and the woman fell off. Police and code enforcement officers began investigating, and by Friday the club’s business license had been revoked. (AP)

Residents have come to love the animal so much they nicknamed it “Tyson.” (AP)

Her family moved multiple times, as her husband, an engineer for the Federal Aviation Administration, took on different projects. Every time she started over in a new place, she called the local Girl Scout council and got involved. She said she found guidance in the old Girl Scout song: “Make new friends, but keep the old.” She and her family lived in Northern Virginia in the 1970s, and then 30 years ago, she retired with her husband in Ocean Pines, Md. They became involved with volunteer work — organizing events and raising money for Alzheimer’s disease research, veterans’ groups and, of course, Girl Scouts.

local Funds are contingent on Maryland and D.C. giving similar support TRANSPORTATION The Virginia General Assembly agreed Saturday to give Metro $154 million a year in permanent, new funding, on the condition Maryland and D.C. make somewhat larger contributions to provide the transit agency with up to $500 million more annually. The action marked what appeared to be a historic step in securing for Metro a significant source of dedicated revenue that it has lacked since opening in 1976.
Virginia has long been viewed as a major obstacle to approving such funding, partly because the legislature is controlled by Republicans who have been skeptical of investing in public transit. The new money would be used to revive a transit system beset by aging equipment and longneeded repairs. It remained necessary to resolve differences between the Virginia legislation and a similar bill before the Maryland General Assembly. A key issue is the varying amounts each jurisdiction would pay, based on population and ridership. But the breakthrough in Richmond follows a similar advance in

which would give Metro $150 million a year in dedicated funding if Virginia and D.C. each pledged the same amount or more. D.C., the strongest supporter of Metro funding, plans to go along with whatever the two states decide rather than risk blocking a regional agreement, officials said. Virginia’s action drew applause from much of the region, including from Hogan, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Metro. It also was hailed by business groups, environmentalists, unions and grassroots civic organizations that have been pressing for increased Metro funding. ROBERT McCARTNEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Teen convicted in killings of boy, off-duty officer A teen has been convicted in the unrelated shootings of a 15-yearold boy and an off-duty Secret Service officer in D.C. A jury on Friday found Maurice Bellamy, 19, guilty of two counts of firstdegree murder while armed and robbery. He was 17 when he was charged in the killings of Davonte Washington and 30-year-old Arthur Baldwin. Prosecutors said Bellamy shot Washington in March 2016. Bellamy used the same pistol in December 2015 when he and two friends thought Baldwin was a drug dealer and planned to rob him. Bellamy could get life-in-prison terms at sentencing July 20.

THE DISTRICT It looks like President Trump is getting the military parade he wants in D.C. — though he may get no tanks for the effort. A Pentagon planning memo released Friday says the parade being planned for Nov. 11, Veterans Day, will “include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks — consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure.” Big, heavy tanks could tear up D.C. streets. But the event will “include a heavy air component at the end of the parade,” meaning lots of airplane flyovers. Older aircraft will be included as available. The memo from the office of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis offers initial planning guidance to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, whose staff will plan the parade along a route from the
White House to the Capitol, and integrate it with the city’s annual veterans’ parade. Northern Command, which oversees U.S. troops in North America, will execute the parade. Trump decided he wanted a military parade in D.C. after he attended France’s Bastille Day celebration in the center of Paris last July. As the invited guest of French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump watched enthusiastically from a viewing stand as the French military showcased its tanks and fighter jets, including many U.S.-made planes, along the famed Champs-Elysees. Trump praised the French display months later when he and Macron met in New York, saying, “We’re going to have to try and top it.” The Pentagon memo did not include a cost estimate for the parade. The White House budget director recently told Congress the cost to taxpayers could be between $10 million and $30 million. DARLENE SUPERVILLE (AP)

First national walkout in wake of Fla. shooting is set for Wednesday EDUCATION As schools around the country brace for student walkouts following the deadly shooting in Parkland, Fla., principals and superintendents are scrambling to perform a delicate balancing act: how to let thousands of students exercise their First Amendment rights while not disrupting school and not pulling administrators into the debate over gun control. Some have taken a hard line, promising to suspend students who walk out, while others are using a softer approach, working with students to set up places on campus where they can remember the Parkland victims and express their views about school safety and gun control. Since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, demonstrations have sprung up on campuses around the country. But the first large-scale, coordinated national demonstration is planned for Wednesday, when organizers of the Women’s March have called for a 17-minute walkout — one
minute for each of the 17 killed in Florida. National demonstrations are also planned for March 24, with a march on Washington, D.C.; and on April 20, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado. For school administrators, figuring out how to allow the demonstrations during school hours has proven challenging. In Needville, Texas, near Houston, Superintendent Curtis Rhodes was castigated on social media after he warned that students who leave class would be suspended for three days, even if they get parental permission. The American Civil Liberties Union has been advising students that because they are required to go to school by law, administrators can discipline them for unexcused absences. But the ACLU also told students that schools can’t punish them more harshly because of the political nature of their demonstrations. In Henrico County, Va., near Richmond, administrators sent an email to parents saying they are not sanctioning Wednesday’s walkout, but feel obligated to manage the event because of its heavy promotion on social media.

Bolivian officials say the mostly blue banner was the world’s biggest — or at least longest — flag. Bolivia lost its only seacoast to Chile in a war from 1879 to 1883. It’s been demanding a sea outlet for generations and has asked the World Court to order Chile to negotiate a settlement in good faith.
NRA GRANTS TO SCHOOLS
The amount the National Rifle Association gave in grants to about 500 U.S. schools from 2010 through 2016, according to an Associated Press analysis.

While officials in many districts say they have no plans to cut ties with the NRA, school districts in Denver and Florida’s Broward County have recently turned down grants.

Poland prohibits Sunday shopping A new Polish law banning almost all trade on Sundays has taken effect, with large grocery stores and most other retailers closed for the first time since liberal shopping laws were introduced in the 1990s after communism’s collapse.

Critics across party lines rips new Fla. gun law FLORIDA The political and legal fallout from Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s decision on Friday to sign a sweeping gun bill into law following a school massacre was nearly immediate, as the National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit to stop it and politicians in both parties criticized it. The law raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21, extends a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases to include long guns, and bans bump stocks, which allow guns to mimic fully automatic fire. “I think when you start getting into some of the blanket restrictions on people’s Second Amendment rights, I think that that is constitutionally vulnerable,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., said on Fox News. Democrats were quick to fault Scott and legislators for failing to include a ban on semi-automatic rifles such as the one used in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum said Florida’s officials “simply have not done enough to stop our gun violence epidemic, and that remains true even with the governor’s signature.” The law also creates a so-called guardian program enabling some teachers and school employees to carry guns. Students criticized the provision, and the Broward County school superintendent already said he doesn’t want to participate in the program. GARY FINEOUT AND KELLI KENNEDY (AP)

POLITICS In the nerve center of the Trump resistance, some volunteers staff 24-hour hotlines in case immigration agents strike in the middle of the night. Others flood neighborhoods to film arrests and interview witnesses. Local governments are teaming with donors to hire lawyers for those facing expulsion hearings. California and the Trump administration are engaged in all-out war over immigration enforcement, the president’s signature issue on the campaign trail and in the White House. It is a personal battle in the nation’s most populous and economically powerful state, where 27 percent of the 39 million residents are foreign-born. Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week filed a lawsuit accusing California and its new slate of laws protecting immigrants of violating the Constitution and endangering federal agents. He also compared the actions of state and local officials to “secession” and

California’s defiance marks a seismic shift for the state. In 1994, nearly 59 percent of voters passed
Proposition 187, a ballot initiative that sought to deny public benefits to those in the state illegally and expel undocumented children from public schools. The measure was ultimately blocked in court. But outrage over its passage, fueled by the state’s rapidly growing Latino population, helped turn a Republican stronghold into a mecca for Democrats. Since then, California has granted undocumented immigrants privileges they can’t get in most other states, such as
driver’s licenses and in-state college tuition. In January, California officially became a sanctuary jurisdiction, restricting state and local governments from cooperating with immigration agents and warning employers that they could be fined if they voluntarily hand over workers’ private information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Officials say they are not stopping immigration agents from arresting criminals, but ICE says California’s efforts put its workforce in danger, forcing agents to pursue criminals on the streets, often without local police backup. T h e r i si n g te n si o n h a s prompted some to ask whether Oakland and other cities are taking the resistance too far. The Los Angeles Times, which has defended undocumented immigrants in its opinion pages, said the Oakland mayor crossed a line when she tipped off the city about the roundups last month. “Her heart may have been in the right place,” the newspaper wrote in an editorial. “But some of those targeted by ICE agents could very well have been people with violent criminal pasts.” MARIA SACCHETTI (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Trump fiery, freewheeling at rally President Trump told western Pennsylvania voters Saturday that his new tariffs will save the steel industry and urged them to send Republican Rick Saccone to the House so he can keep delivering those kinds of results. Here are some other takeaways from the 75-minute rally. (TWP) Threat to drug dealers
Attack on the media
Meeting with Kim Jong Un
Trump said that allowing prosecutors to seek the death penalty for drug dealers — an idea he said he got from Chinese President Xi Jinping — is “a discussion we have to start thinking about. I don’t know if this country’s ready for it.” It was not the first time he suggested executing drug dealers. Earlier this month, he described it as a way to fight the opioid epidemic.
Trump delivered a profane attack on the news media, calling NBC News host Chuck Todd a “sleeping son of a bitch” and deeming CNN “fake as hell.” Trump also rattled off several falsehoods, such as a claim that 52 percent of women voted for him in the presidential election (it was 52 percent of white women, according to exit polling).
Trump touted his decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and boasted that it was something his predecessors couldn’t do. When Trump mentioned Kim’s name, the crowd booed. But Trump responded: “No, it’s very positive. ... No, after the meeting you may do that, but now we have to be very nice because let’s see what happens.”

Chemical failure at fertility clinic threatens eggs HEALTH A long-established San Francisco fertility clinic had a liquid nitrogen failure in a storage tank where thousands of eggs and embryos are kept frozen for future use, jeopardizing the tissue that hundreds of women have deposited there in hope of having children. The March 4 incident at Pacific Fertility Clinic, acknowledged on Sunday by the facility’s president, is the second such admission in a matter of days, coming on the heels of a similar malfunction the same weekend at an unrelated clinic in Cleveland. The pair of incidents, with powerful emotional and financial consequences, come as the number of U.S. women freezing their eggs has soared in recent years as assisted reproductive technology has advanced and become increasingly popular. As at the University Hospitals Fertility Center in Cleveland, doctors at the Pacific Fertility Clinic raced over the weekend to notify hundreds of patients, said Carl Herbert, a physician and the clinic’s president. “There is just not an ability to do this unemotionally. Anger is a big part of the phone call,” he said of his discussions with patients. Herbert said the extent to which the chemical failure damaged the eggs and embryos remains unclear. The clinic’s website says fees for egg freezing are $8,345 for the initial cycle and $6,995 for each subsequent round. AMY GOLDSTEIN (TWP)

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday proposed renaming the far-right National Front party co-founded by her father 46 years ago to National Rally, opening a new era after her resounding defeat in last year’s presidential race to Emmanuel Macron. The new name would have to be approved by party members in a mail vote. In another decisive change, the party severed ties to firebrand founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, 89, by eliminating his title of honorary president-for-life. After her defeat, Marine Le Pen promised a “re-foundation” of the party, but its anti-immigration agenda has remained intact. (AP)
Trump administration officials said Sunday there will be no more conditions imposed on North Korea before a first-ever meeting of the two nation’s leaders beyond the North’s promise not to resume nuclear testing and missile flights or publicly criticize U.S.-South Korean military exercises. The officials’ comments followed the surprise announcement last week that President Trump has agreed to meet the North’s Kim Jong Un by May. Administration officials credited tough economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations, and pushed by the U.S., with helping bring Kim to the brink of negotiations. (AP)
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Sunday warned the Syrian government not to use chemical weapons in its civil war and said the Trump administration has made it clear that it would be “very unwise” to do so. Mattis told reporters traveling with him to the Middle East that he was disturbed by reports of civilian casualties in bombings by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces. Mattis also said that Russia, which has intervened militarily in Syria to support the Assad government, could be complicit in the civilian casualties. Russia and the Syrian government have accused rebels of blocking civilians from fleeing. (AP)

CAVALIERS TO WATCH
Thriving in the dark
Kyle Guy Sophomore guard
When Virginia’s offense stalls, it turns to the silky shooter with the quick release. Guy scored a teamhigh 14.1 points per game this season and was MVP of the ACC Tournament.
NCAA TOURNAMENT Most everyone had taken shelter, but Tony Bennett was walking in the rain. In his mind, some things are worse than a downpour. Last month against Virginia Tech, Bennett went to work 87 minutes before tip-off. It was a late arrival for most coaches but early for a Virginia coach who avoids crowds and detests idle time. Bennett’s staff used to find some of his quirks odd, but when you’re the coach of a team that would go on to earn the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, it’s all part of the plan. Virginia will face the 16th-seeded Retrievers from University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Thursday in Dayton, Ohio. “Certain things are sacred to me,” Bennett said later. Among those are efficiency, maximizing potential and — in a profession in which success often follows self-promoters — his privacy. Bennett is college basketball’s most public mystery. He avoids the spotlight for himself and his team. He doesn’t see how interviews and TV appearances can help their goals. The Cavaliers (31-2) captured their third ACC regular-season title in five seasons and won the conference tourney Saturday, so maybe he has a point. Even on that rainy day, with ESPN’s “College GameDay” in
town and Hokies coach Buzz Williams seizing any chance for national exposure, Bennett declined to appear on television. He operates no social media accounts, has tended to avoid top50 recruits (and the entitlement that often comes with them) and arrives at the arena as late and as stealthily as possible. Bennett, 48, has crafted a program in this image. He is ruthlessly competitive and driven to prove his name belongs among the game’s great coaches, but he is almost defiantly unwilling to conform to the trends that would seem to make that rise easier. Longtime Virginia assistant Jason Williford said his boss has taught him one prevailing lesson: “It’s OK to be different.” In his younger days, Bennett had been a point guard blessed with average talent but an unholy work ethic. As the son of a famously demanding college coach — Dick Bennett led Wisconsin to the Final Four in 2000 — Bennett teased friends for wanting to attend the high school dance; he had left a window unlocked at the gym to practice alone. In college, he’d find a racquetball court that would allow him in so he could turn off the lights and practice dribbling in the dark. By the time Bennett made it to the NBA with the Charlotte
Coach Tony Bennett led Virginia to its third regular-season ACC title in the past five seasons.
“In this crazy world that we’re in — and we’re in a crazy time — we can be different. It’s OK to be different.” JASON WILLIFORD, an assistant at Virginia, on a program that prizes team defense and humble players.
Hornets, he had decided his future was either as a pastor or a coach. While teammates hit the town, he watched movies and went to bed early. “There’s a lot of things, just like in sports and our society today, that weren’t as interesting to me,” Bennett said. “I felt comfortable, but I also knew who I was.”

He was a worker, not one of the gifted. He was a preparer, not a character. A man, not a celebrity. When he left Washington State, where he had succeeded his dad as coach, to take over at Virginia in 2009, he would rebuild a program in that image. The Cavaliers would run an unglamorous version of the manto-man defense called the “Pack Line.” And they would play slow, minimizing possessions even as successful programs took more shots. “We have to lose before we can win,” Bennett told his confused staff in those early days. And they would not change. Because before anyone else knew who the Cavaliers would be, Bennett knew. They would resemble Tony Bennett himself. KENT BABB (THE WASHINGTON POST)

In his fifth year, the grad student is an established leader who can be trusted in big moments. He’s an 89 percent free throw shooter and — at 6 foot 5 — a pesky defender.

The ‘Canes won’t go that far this year, but they’re capable of punching above their weight behind freshmen guards Lonnie Walker IV and Chris Lykes. C Arizona: The Wildcats boast two skilled 7-footers. Serbian senior Dusan Ristic shoots 43 percent from 3-point range. Deandre Ayton just dropped 32 points and 18 rebounds in the Pac-12 title game as a freshman. Junior Allonzo Trier (18.4 ppg) is a proven playmaker. With coach Sean Miller tied to recruiting corruption, any success for Arizona may be short-lived, on paper at least.

(USA, 2016, 14 min.) Yuma is often thought of as a hot, dry desert town in southwestern Arizona, but for the area residents, and the United States as a whole, it is the land of plenty. During the winter months, nearly all the leafy vegetables Americans eat are grown in the fertile fields, which lie at the literal end of the Colorado River. For the people who work the fields, the Colorado River represents not only the source of their livelihood, but a deep, spiritual connection to this arid landscape as well.

Directors: Kaisa Astikainene F DC PREMIERE

Director: Charles Gifford US PREMIERE

(USA, 2017, 11 min.) Garrett Eaton, an Afghan war vet, oilman, and river guide who has fought his way back from addiction and certain death through the wild serpentine rivers of the American Southwest. While this is a story of renewal, forgiveness and healing, Return from Desolation is also a bridge between what we think we know and the nuance of what it means to be human in a complex society. Through Garrett’s experience, we see the importance of wild, public landscapes to help us all find our way home. Director: Justin Clifton DC PREMIERE

ADAPTATION BANGLADESH: SEA LEVEL RISE (USA, 2017, 12 min.) The “new normal” of global climate change is, generally, a harrowing reality to contemplate. Cultural anthropologist Alizé Carrére helps us see, however, that it does not need to be a reality devoid of hope. In Bangladesh — the most densely populated country in the world and one that will bear a disproportionate share of the impact of global climate change — Carrére shows us the kind of resilience, flexibility and innovation that will be requisite for the survival of our species. Director: Justin DeShields DC PREMIERE

RESTORING THE CLEARWATER (USA, 2017, 17 min.) For nearly a year the historic sloop, Clearwater, was out of the water, on land, enduring what wooden boats have historically endured forever: Restoration. Onshore near the Hudson River Maritime Museum on the Rondout Creek in Kingston, swathed in tarps and protective sheets, the nearly 60-year-old wooden boat was carefully mended and updated. Built under the visionary leadership of musician/activist and Hudson River resident Pete Seeger, the Clearwater continues to fulfill the original mission he envisioned, to help educate and share the plight of our local Hudson River environment as it luffs its sails and roams America’s First River. DC PREMIERE
CITY ON THE WATER NOBODY LOVES ME (USA, 2017, 12 min.) High in Lake Titicaca in the Andes Mountains, a large and homely frog once thrived, a species endemic to altitude and cold water named Telmatobius culeus. But over-collecting for human consumption, pollution and predation by introduced species have devastated the Titicaca water frog. In 2016, 10,000 frogs died all at once, and it wasn’t the first mass die-off this critically endangered species has experienced. This short film from The Redford Center shines a new light on these underappreciated animals, showing their amazing adaptability, crucial role in the aquatic ecosystem and what’s at stake — unless humans intervene. Director: Jeff Reichert DC PREMIERE
PERSON OF THE FOREST (USA, 2017, 17 min.) In the vanishing lowland rainforests of Borneo, research is underway to uncover and understand the unique cultural behaviors in wild orangutans.

SYLVIA EARLE’S OCEAN FILM CHALLENGE
Presented with Mission Blue, Audience Awards and HATCH A showcase of ocean shorts from filmmakers around the world. Fri, Mar 23, 7 PM FREE Q&A Naval Heritage Center
2018 Environmental Champion Dr. Sylvia Earle, a world-renowned oceanographer, explorer, author, and lecturer was recognized as DCEFF’s 2018 Environmental Champion for her commitment to raising awareness about the need for ocean conservation through film and personal advocacy. She has led more than 100 expeditions worldwide, logging more than 7,000 hours underwater.
The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is the world’s premier showcase of environmentally themed films. Since 1993, our mission has been to celebrate Earth and inspire understanding and stewardship of the environment through the power of film. Each March in Washington DC, we host the largest environmental film festival in the world, presenting 100+ films to audiences of more than 30,000. Filmmaker and topical discussions are an important part of our events, which happen at museums, embassies, libraries, universities, and local theaters throughout the city. We also present a year-round screening series and community events. Many of our screenings are free, and our Washington, DC location offers the unique opportunity for films and filmmakers to reach national and international lawmakers and decision-makers. Our impact continues to grow both in DC and beyond. We are the largest and longest-running environmental film festival in the United States.
Dr. Earle served as Chief Scientist of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration from 1990-92, and has been Explorer-inResidence at the National Geographic Society since 1998. She was awarded the 2009 TED Prize for her proposal to establish a global network of marine protected areas, called “hope spots.” Her organization Mission Blue was founded that year to build public support for these hope spots. At the 2018 Festival Dr. Earle will participate in the first Ocean Film Challenge and present the prize to the winning filmmaker.

D.C. area doesn’t have team with an NCAA bid for first time since 1978 MEN’S BASKETBALL On Sunday night, something was missing from the NCAA Tournament selection show: a D.C.-area presence in the field of 68. The last chance for a program located in the metropolitan area to play its way into March Madness was extinguished Friday
when George Mason was eliminated from the Atlantic 10 tournament. Maryland missed the NCAA Tournament after three consecutive appearances. Georgetown’s main goal for its first season under coach Patrick Ewing was to establish a foundation. George Mason didn’t have a scholarship senior, and George Washington tried develop a plethora of young players. American is in a full rebuild. Howard’s best

two players were a freshman and a sophomore. None of those teams were seeded better than fifth in their conference tournaments. Added together, it’s the first time the
area won’t have a team in the tournament since 1978, when only 32 programs were invited. The big picture isn’t so bad. All but Howard have earned NCAA bids since 2011, and four of the
six have made it since 2014. Next season should be brighter for several teams. Georgetown finished 15-15, but two of Ewing’s first recruits — Jamorko Pickett and Jahvon Blair — landed on the Big East’s all-rookie team. GW (15-18) won five of seven late in the regular season and returns an improving young backcourt. With forward and Virginia transfer Jarred Reuter eligible next season, Mason (16-17) could be a serious A-10 contender for the first time. Maryland (19-13) is under the most scrutiny after a condensed Big Ten schedule and key injuries contributed to an eighth-place conference finish. PATRICK STEVENS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Tiger Woods, who has had several back surgeries in recent years, broke par four days in a row.
Tiger just a putt short in best finish since 2013 Woods ties for second behind Paul Casey as comeback gets a boost GOLF A long victory drought on the PGA Tour finally ended Sunday in Palm Harbor, Fla., just not the one a raucous crowd was expecting. Paul Casey closed with a 6-under 65 and won the Valspar Championship, but only after watching from the locker room as Tiger Woods came up one putt short of forcing a playoff. It was the closest Woods has come to winning in nearly five years. Casey, who started the final round five shots behind, ran off three straight birdies early
on the back nine at Innisbrook to take the lead, and he closed with four par saves to post a 10-under 274. No one caught him, giving him his second PGA Tour title and his first since the Houston Open in 2009. Patrick Reed and Woods tied for second at 275. Reed was tied for the lead and appeared headed for a playoff at worst until his approach to the 18th came back down the slope, and his 45-foot birdie putt was so weak that it rolled all the way back to his feet. He three-putted for bogey and a 68. Woods opened with a birdie to briefly share the lead. He then went 15 holes without a birdie until he brought Innisbrook to
life with a birdie putt from just inside 45 feet that fell into the cup at the par-3 17th. That left him one shot behind with one hole to play. Woods played conservatively with an iron off the 442-yard, uphill closing hole. From 185 yards, his approach came up some 40 feet short, and his birdie putt to force a playoff was 2 feet short. He closed with a 70 — the first time since The Barclays in 2013 that he posted all four rounds under par on the PGA Tour. It was his best finish since he tied for second at that Barclays tournament, right about the time his back started to give out. Next up for Woods is the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill this week. DOUG FERGUSON (AP)

Sherman worked out his own deal Richard Sherman made a quick break out of unemployment Saturday, agreeing to sign with the 49ers after the Seahawks cut him Friday. Perhaps more impressive than the time it took for the cornerback to reach a deal — reportedly worth up to $39 million over three years — was how it was reached. NFL Network’s Peter Schrager tweeted that Sherman, a 29-year-old Stanford grad, represented himself in a five-hour negotiating session. Sherman, who is recovering from a torn Achilles in his right leg and a bone spur in his left foot, tweeted at Schrager: “It was work! But we got it done!” (EXPRESS)

American sinks Navy for Patriot League title Cecily Carl scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds Sunday to help American secure its second NCAA Tournament bid with a 58-49 victory over Navy in the Patriot League championship game in Washington. Top-seeded American (26-6), which has won 20 straight home games, claimed its second title in four years — it reached its first NCAAs in 2015. The women’s NCAA bracket will be announced tonight (7, ESPN). Atlantic 10 tournament champion George Washington also has an automatic bid. Maryland and Virginia are expected to get in.

Free agent ace Jake Arrieta and Philadelphia have agreed to a three-year deal worth $75 million, according to multiple reports Sunday. The right-hander was among several top free agents who failed for months to land a long-term contract in a changing market. Arrieta, 32, won the 2015 NL Cy Young Award with the Cubs and helped them win the World Series in 2016. He was 14-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 30 starts last year. He’ll join Aaron Nola atop the Phils’ rotation. (AP) Reports: Giants aware of social media video showing Odell Beckham Jr. next to woman with white powder
Former Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is scheduled to visit the Redskins this week, most likely today, according to a person with knowledge of his plans. A firstround pick in 2011, Wilkerson was released by New York last week. The 28-year-old posted 44.5 sacks, including a personal-best 12 in 2015, over eight seasons. He signed a five-year, $86 million extension in 2016, but his play didn’t live up to expectations. Problems with showing up late to work led to several benchings over the past three years.

The combination of an NCAA investigation and a second straight losing season left UConn coach Kevin Ollie out of a job. He was fired Saturday, four years after leading the Huskies to the NCAA title. The university said it is dismissing him for “just cause,” which could keep it from paying the remainder of his contract. Ollie, former coach Jim Calhoun’s hand-picked successor, was in the second year of a $17.9 million deal. UConn was 14-18 this year and 16-17 last year. (AP)

There’s plenty of common space for networking at offices like WeWork.
Work all together now A shared co-working space might be the work-from-home alternative you need OFFICES Kids, laundry, your Netflix queue — there are lots of things that can compete for your attention when you work from home. “Some people work well from home, but I’m not one of those people,” says Hillary Berman, founder of marketing consulting firm Popcorn & Ice Cream. “I get very distracted, so for me it’s better to get out of the house and have a place to go.” But for a small business that doesn’t require a lot of space, it can be hard to find the right place to land. Coffee shops can be too loud and unpredictable. Traditional office spaces might be bigger than needed and more expensive than budget allows. Berman, 41, sublet an office for a while. But when that was no longer available, she found a new option that’s been ideal for her two-employee firm: a co-working space. She rents a private office at Hera Hub in Friendship Heights that allows her to be productive without the hassles that can come with leasing traditional office space.
“Dealing with coffee and WiFi and water and electricity — that was a huge headache I didn’t want,” she says. “As a business owner, I can focus on running and growing my business, not whether or not the Wi-Fi is working.” There are lots of people out there like Berman who want a professional business location but whose small companies aren’t ready for or interested in a high-rise corner office. Many are turning to co-working spaces, where things like Wi-Fi, coffee, printing, conference room access and other utilities and amenities are often included in monthly membership prices. The number of co-working members around the world is expected to increase from 1.74 million in 2017 to 5.1 million in 2022, according to a 2017 forecast by Emergent Research, a California-based research and consulting firm focused on small businesses, and the Global Coworking Unconference Conference. That same report predicts that the number of co-working
“It’s a great way to tap into a community of remote workers. And I feel like it’s impossible to not be productive from a co-working space.” ALISON WARD, who gets work done for her remote job at WeWork offices around the world
spaces around the world will rise from 14,411 in 2017 to more than 30,000 in 2022. Co-working options abound in the D.C. area, from large companies with lots of locations like WeWork and Carr Workplaces to smaller startups like Cove. Most offer both private office rentals and shared space that members can use on an everyday or asneeded basis. Local businesspeople turn to
co-working spaces for a variety of reasons. When Dan Sondhelm, 45, started his own financial marketing company, Sondhelm Partners, two years ago, he knew the ease and convenience of a co-working space was the best option for his new business. He rents a private office at Level Office in Alexandria that he shares with one employee. “As we add more people we can reconfigure or get a bigger office,” he says. “There’s flexibility in what we can do, which allows you to grow within their system. There might come a time when we want to have our own real estate, but we won’t be there for a while.” In a co-working space, members interact with folks in all kinds of industries and job roles, a perk that Berman considers an invaluable resource. “If I ever have a question about something or a situation that arises, it’s really nice to have a built-in network that you can bounce ideas off of,” she says. “You can learn from each other and get CONTINUED ON PAGE 19
Education Dept.: Leave loans to us The Department of Education told state regulators Friday to back off the companies managing its $1.3 trillion portfolio of student loans, arguing that only the federal government can oversee its contractors. States have stepped in to fill what many see as a void in the federal oversight of student loan servicers, companies the Education Department pays to handle debt payments. The industry has lobbied Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, above, to prevent states from imposing their own regulations, such as standards for timely payment processing. “Many states are likely to view this document as legally dubious … and will wait for courts to weigh in with their own interpretation,” said Christopher Peterson, a former enforcement attorney at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

great advice. Those are the kinds of conversations you can seek out, or they just happen in the kitchen when you’re grabbing a glass of water.” Alison Ward’s home base is in the Reston, Va., area. But she travels all over the world working in the public relations department of 100 percent remote company Toptal, which connects businesses with freelance software developers, designers and finance experts. She’s logged hours at the WeWork location in Shaw as well as in other coworking spaces around the globe. “If I’m traveling by myself, I try to check out co-working spaces when I’m in a new city,” says Ward, 30. “It’s a great way
to tap into a community of remote workers. And I feel like it’s impossible to not be productive from a co-working space. Most are really beautifully designed, the Wi-Fi is strong and everyone is dialed in and plugging away.” When choosing a co-working space, Berman recommends assessing how quickly you expect your company to grow and whether the space can accommodate that. “We’re not adding new team members every day,” she says. “But if you’re a faster-growing business, the co-working model might be hard for you, because at some point you’d outgrow it.” Make sure that a co-working environment matches your company’s style and mission. “Don’t try to shoehorn it,” says Scott Caldwell, 30, president

When we looked at our team and culture, the thing we wanted to build was a balance of fun and professionalism, and WeWork seemed to meet that need.” Understand what you do on a daily basis and whether a coworking space is conducive to that. “Sometimes there’s a lack of call room space and it can be noisy,” says Ward. “If you’re in an industry where you’re on the phone a lot, you have to make sure you have a guaranteed quiet area for taking calls, or it’s just not going to work.” BETH LUBERECKI (FOR EXPRESS)

training. He decided he wanted to venture out on his own, so he moved to D.C. to open his own franchise — and he still brings Rex along with him every day.
A job that doesn’t bite What he does Last summer, a stressed-out German shepherd on Capitol Hill named Lyla could barely go for a walk without barking herself into a frenzy. Lyla’s owners, equally stressed out, needed someone who could
work some magic. So they called DC Dog Wizard, the dog training company run by Scott Dancer. “Every time they left their apartment, she was barking at every other dog, just going crazy and off the handle,” Dancer says of then 1-year-old Lyla. “After two weeks with me learning obedience and self-confidence and socialization, they’re now

able to take this dog off leash at 4 or 5 p.m. in Lincoln Park, when everyone gathers after work.” Dancer opened the D.C. branch of the national Dog Wizard brand in January 2014 and remains its sole trainer. He works with all ages, breeds and sizes of dogs on big issues like separation anxiety or aggression toward other animals or humans, plus what he calls “problem solving.” “That could be, the dog’s digging up my yard, the dog’s peeing in my house, the dog’s chasing squirrels,” he says. “And all of those things can be solved with obedience and socialization.” Dancer typically makes three house calls a day, and sometimes works with tougher cases he kennels at his own home. Sessions typically start with an evaluation to determine what kind of training will work best and progress to a basic puppy lesson with treat-training techniques or a high-distraction, off-leash obedience lesson. Most dogs require six hour-long lessons, but that varies depending on the situation. He says half the challenge is teaching non-canine clients, who must attend all sessions, how to behave with their pets. “The humans are probably the hardest part,” he says. “There’s a dynamic between the owners and
“Obviously, you have to be OK being surrounded by dogs, but you have to be good with people, as well,” Dancer says. “You need to be a great communicator and teacher, because it does no good to teach the dog if the owner isn’t going to be able to experience the same success.” Dog trainers also need patience and time-management skills as they bounce from client to client. And prepare for some heartmelting and face-licking along the way. “My favorite dogs to train are the fearful ones, because you get to see the biggest transformation,” Dancer says. “They go from not peeing outside or even wanting to leave the house to becoming more wellbalanced every day. I don’t want to sugarcoat all the hard work, but it’s mentally stimulating for me as well as the dogs.”

dogs that makes a difference.”
How he got the job In 2012, Dancer joined a friend working at Charlotte Dog Wizard in North Carolina, mostly helping wash dogs and keeping the facility clean. After a few months, he started bringing his boxer Rex, then 2 years old, with him on the weekends. “He wasn’t the best at socializing and started getting into little scuffles here and there, and then he bit a dog who needed to go to the vet and get stitches,” Dancer says. “So I trained him, and I’ve been training dogs ever since.” Dancer underwent Dog Wizard’s three-month training program, which taught him skills including how to do scent and agility
You’ll need to do a deep dive into animal behavior and get plenty of hands-on experience. Some facilities, like the Dog Wizard franchise, offer programs that teach you everything you need to get started, plus provide their own certification. No federal or state certification is required to be a dog trainer, but receiving it through an organization — such as the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers — can help attract clients. If you can’t find a formal training program that’s right for you, seek out a trainer who will take you on as an apprentice. As you delve into training, you might decide to specialize in an area like training therapy dogs or search and rescue animals. Options are plentiful. “There’s no such thing as the perfect dog, and that’s what really keeps me interested,” Dancer says. “Is it a challenge to train certain dogs? Yes, and that’s why I can see myself doing this for the rest of my life.” ANGELA HAUPT (FOR EXPRESS)

Let’s go channel surf
‘For the People’ 10 p.m. Tuesday on ABC
Another offering from executive producer Shonda Rhimes, this legal drama follows the challenges of six new lawyers working cases in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
YouTube creators get a bad rap due to the select few who use racist language (PewDiePie), make light of suicide (Logan Paul) or set fire to swimming pools (Logan’s brother Jake). To highlight that not everything on YouTube lives in the abyss of humanity’s worst impulses, a handful of journalists who cover the platform share a few channels worth checking out. ABBY OHLHEISER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bobby Burns is a 21-year-old YouTuber who’s quickly become the most insightful mouthpiece on YouTube culture. In his videos, he’s demonstrated how YouTubers manipulate their audiences when delivering important announcements, and staged his own satirical talk show to point out the favoritism YouTube gives to popular late-night series in its Trending tab. Burns curates an important channel with interesting, educational content that’s beneficial to newcomers and daily users alike. JULIA ALEXANDER
Sometimes it feels as if tech YouTubers are only talking to each other. Watch a few different phone reviews, and you’re bound to hear the same jargon parroted straight off the manufacturer’s website. That’s not the case with Brownlee. His videos are informative, aesthetically pleasing and easy for tech enthusiasts and average consumers alike to understand. He doesn’t appear to be in the pocket of any particular company but instead seems as though he truly wants to inform his viewers about new tech. RIC SANCHEZ

Makeup is an important prop for Sailor J’s online persona, but the joy of her videos is in the juxtaposition of a familiar YouTube format — the beauty tutorial — with comedy. Her breakout series, “How to be a ______,” dunks on each zodiac sign, and she’s also in the middle of a similar one on Hogwarts houses. But she’s also used the tutorial format to make serious comments: After the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, Sailor J uploaded a trenchant review of the (fictional) “Thoughts and Prayers” makeup line.

3 ‘Rise’ 10 p.m. Tuesday on NBC
Loosely based on journalist Michael Sokolove’s book “Drama High,” this series from Jason Katims stars Josh Radnor as a high school English teacher tasked with staging the provocative musical “Spring Awakening.”
Friday on Netflix
Before her tearful coming-out video went viral in 2015, Nilsen built her brand as a popular beauty vlogger with a channel full of the exact types of content you’d expect from that kind of creator. Nowadays, she’s established herself as the kind of YouTuber who will, in the same breath, tell you which foundation will look good on your oily T-zone and also about the time she interviewed President Barack Obama about marriage equality and domestic terrorism. Both of which she does with equal prowess. MADISON MALONE KIRCHER

“Corporate” is the new “Office,” a warped 21st-century vision of the workplace that is diabolically clever. The sitcom launched on Comedy Central in January and has earned enough of a following to get the green light for a second season: It was the highest-rated basic-cable prime-time comedy of the
2017-2018 season among males 18 to 34! The Season 1 finale airs at 10 p.m. Wednesday. The corporation is Hampton DeVille, a global conglomerate whose slogan is “we make everything” — agricultural goods, pharmaceuticals, industrial weaponry. Now they’re elbowing into personal tech with Obelisk, a supersized tablet. But the firm is a tad tone-deaf. In the wake of a deadly hurricane, a social media staffer
Odd job: On ‘Corporate,’ work is hell, and hilarious The cubicle-bound cast of “Corporate” is just trying to make it until 5 p.m.
tweets, “Pick up the Obelisk to follow hurricane news. You’ll be blown away by the size.” The internet is furious! Junior-executives-in-training Matt and Jake (portrayed by series creators Matt Ingebretson and Jake Weisman) are ordered to find and fire
Kristen Wiig cast as villain Cheetah in “Wonder Woman” sequel, director Patty Jenkins tweets
the tweeter. The culprit turns out to be an expert on tracking down workplace cakes, so off the threesome goes in search of birthday/sorry-yougot-fired/successful-bypasssurgery baked goods. They bond and the boss is furious. While “The Office” had a
warm heart, “Corporate” beats cold and cruel. But both shows excel at capturing workplace absurdity. The finale is about the company’s creation of a new national holiday, “Remember Day,” in which people give gifts (like, oh, the Obelisk tablet) to commemorate 9/11. If that’s not tasteless enough, the episode involves an act of swanocide and Bin Laden sex jokes. And more of the show’s deadpan humor. As morose Matt observes, “My co-workers are my family. I know that because they constantly mistreat me and I need their approval.” Read Marc’s previous columns at washingtonpost.com/muse

“Sturdy built, totally winter-ready and waterproof. Only comes in brown, but that’s actually a plus for me.” @OREGONZOO, using the hashtag #rateaspecies to share a “review” of an otter. The zoo’s initial tweet Friday set off a trend among zoos and science museums. @MontereyAq tweeted a photo of an ocean sunfish, calling it a “TOUR DE FORCE: Simply superlative. ... Absolute head-turner.”
“How is Kate McKinnon playing Robert Mueller AND Arie so perfectly all at once?!” @TATUMTOLLNER, reacting to the “Saturday Night Live” skit
in which Kate McKinnon mashed up the recent “Bachelor” breakup with the Robert Mueller investigation. McKinnon, acting as Mueller, broke up with “Bachelor” contestant Becca, saying he wanted to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice instead of collusion — in the same way that Arie the Bachelor changed his mind from Becca to Lauren.
“Your DNA will decide if you’re the one for our little diva. ... Are you OK with paparazzi? Most importantly, are you willing to relocate to Cincinnati?” @CINCINNATIZOO, replying to Timothy,
a hippo at the San Antonio Zoo, who tweeted his interest in dating Fiona the hippo. Judging by the Cincinnati Zoo’s reply, there are a lot of requirements.
“Thanks, mom.” @SAMGREIS, Sam Greisman — the son of actress Sally Field — posting a photo of his meeting with Olympian Adam Rippon at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner on Saturday. During the Olympics, Sally Field tweeted at Rippon, sending him a screen shot of texts in which she and her son discussed his crush on the figure skating star. Fans on social media were thrilled that the two met.

Emma Watson is dating Chord Overstreet, sources told People magazine. The new couple had been seen leaving the Vanity Fair Oscars party, and were later photographed walking hand-in-hand in Los Angeles last week. “They met through friends,” a source told People. “They might seem like an odd match but they actually have very similar personalities.” A source told Page Six, meanwhile, that “Emma wants to keep things quiet and private.” A representative for Watson had previously told Page Six that she and the “Glee” actor are “just friends.” (EXPRESS)
