A spot to savor art, nature Glenstone museum’s major expansion slated to open in October
MUSEUMS A masterful mixing of art, architecture and nature, Glenstone has announced that Oct. 4 will be the opening day for a muchanticipated expansion aimed at drawing national attention to the museum as a unique and contemplative cultural destination. Nestled in the rolling meadows of a former fox-hunting estate 15 miles outside Washington, the contemporary art museum in Potomac, Md., is the brainchild of billionaire Mitch Rales and his wife, Emily. First opened in 2006 with a 30,000-square-foot building, the expanded facility will boast five times the gallery space and double the natural landscape of the original. It becomes one of the largest private museums in the country, joining the company of the Broad in Los Angeles and the Rubell Family Collection, which plans to open its new home in Miami next year. Moving smoothly between indoor and outdoor spaces, the new museum builds on the original

Designed by architecture firm Thomas Phifer and Partners, the new building, called the Pavilions, will feature 204,000 square feet of galleries, a central water court, contemplative rooms, office space and a library. Groundbreaking was in 2013. The museum has not disclosed the cost of the expansion. Brice Marden, Martin Puryear, Katharina Fritsch and Michael
Heizer are among the artists included in the couple’s holdings, which focus on the period after World War II and feature paintings, photographs, works on paper, sculptures, multimedia works and installations.

The expansion will accommodate many more visitors than previous years, but the couple

Staff will discourage guests from taking selfies and suggest they put away their phones entirely to leave behind the rush of regular life, said Emily Rales, chief curator and co-founder. “We’ve worked to create a visitor experience unlike any other, providing each visitor with an unhurried, contemplative engagement with the artworks,” she said.

Women are making waves in Va.’s House
Naval Academy students face discipline over drugs
Tone and debate being altered by high number of female delegates TIMOTHY C. WRIGHT (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
VIRGINIA Judging strictly by legislation passed, the record number of women in this year’s Virginia House of Delegates had only a modest impact. Most of the new delegates are Democrats, and most of their bills died in Republicancontrolled committees — which is typical for freshmen, male or female. But House members said the presence of a historic number of women in the chamber created a fundamental shift in matters large and small, from the tone of debate to the way the House operates. Two female delegates, for instance — one Republican, one Democrat — clashed over how to create sexual harassment policies. They disagreed on approach, but the result was the House’s firstever requirement for a training program to prevent harassment. Female delegates led the calls for gun control after the Florida school shooting. They had no luck on gun bills, but Republican Speaker Kirk Cox eventually appointed a rare select committee to address school safety — though only three of the 21 members are women. Some members credited the

greater presence of women with influencing the issues that did not come up this year. Most notably, few divisive abortionrelated bills made it to the floor of the House. Women made huge gains in Virginia’s House in last fall’s election. Twelve new women joined the chamber, all replacing men and bringing the total to an all-time high of 28 out of 100 seats. Now, new delegates Jennifer Carroll Foy, D-Prince William, and Kathy Tran, D-Fairfax, have taken the initiative to start an informal “parents’ caucus” to help members — male or female — deal with the tricky issues of raising young children while serving in the legislature. They
have worked with Del. Eileen Filler-Corn, D-Fairfax, to compile lists of family activities in Richmond and day care options. “Hopefully there’ll be another wave of women who have children and this would … actually encourage them to run knowing that we have a family-friendly atmosphere here,” Foy said. But change only goes so far. Del. Kelly Convirs-Fowler, D-Virginia Beach, introduced a resolution to recognize the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion as a “Day of Women” instead of “Day of Tears” — the name chosen by the legislature last year. Her bill never made it out of committee. GREGORY S.

Chilly March pushes back peak bloom The cold weather we’ve had so far in March has slowed the cherry blossoms’ progress toward peak bloom. With cooler-than-normal weather predicted for at least the next one to two weeks, the Capital Weather Gang has pushed its original forecast for peak bloom period back a week. The new estimate is March 30 to April 3, centered on April 1. The National Park Service also announced Monday that it is pushing back its peak bloom estimate from the March 17 to 20 window to March 27 to 31. “While the mathematical models still show the blossom reaching peak on March 18, this week’s cooler than forecast temperatures have necessitated moving the projection to the last week of March,” NPS said.

On guns, Trump yields to Washington reality
HOUSING CRISIS SOLVED?
POLITICS Not two weeks ago, President Trump wagged his finger at a Republican senator and scolded him for being “afraid of the NRA,” declaring that he would stand up to the powerful gun lobby and finally get results on quelling gun violence following last month’s Florida school shooting. On Monday, Trump struck a very different tone as he backpedaled from his earlier demands for sweeping reforms and bowed to Washington reality. The president, who recently advocated increasing the minimum age to purchase an assault weapon to 21, tweeted that he’s “watching court cases and rulings” on the issue, adding that there is “not much political support (to put it mildly).” Over the weekend, the White House released a limited plan to combat school shootings that leaves the question of arming teachers to states and local communities and sends the age issue to a commission for review. Seventeen people were killed in last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., prompting a national conversation about gun laws and, initially, a move from Trump to buck his allies at the National Rifle Association.

President backpedals on raising minimum age to buy assault weapons
The White House is allowing states to decide if teachers should be armed.
Monday the president was focusing on achievable options, after facing significant opposition from lawmakers on a more comprehensive approach. Trump will back two modest pieces of legislation, and the administration pledged to help states pay for firearms training for teachers. Democrats and gun control advocates were quick to pounce, with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., tweeting that Trump “couldn’t even summon the political courage to propose raising the age limit on firearm purchases — despite repeated
promises to support such a step at a meeting with lawmakers.” Without strong advocacy from the White House, an ambitious gun package was unlikely to even get off the ground, given most Republicans’ opposition to any new restrictions. The two measures backed by Trump — an effort to strengthen the federal background check system and an anti-school violence grant program — both enjoy bipartisan support, though some Republicans object and many Democrats say they are insufficient.

A robotics construction company called ICON has developed a method for printing a single-story, 650-square-foot house out of cement in 12 to 24 hours, it revealed Monday at the South by Southwest conference. Currently, ICON can print an entire home for $10,000; it hopes to bring that down to $4,000, The Verge reports. The model it presented at SXSW was constructed with a Vulcan printer, and includes a living room, bedroom, bathroom and porch. ICON and international housing charity New Story hope to use the method, which creates minimal waste, to build a 100-home community in El Salvador next year. ICON also plans to build homes in the U.S. in the future, according to The Verge. (EXPRESS)

Entire home created with 3-D printer Barbershop study cuts hair, blood pressure HEALTH Trim your hair, your beard, your blood pressure? Black men reduced one of their biggest medical risks in a new study that shows the power of familiar faces and trusted places to improve health. Black men have high rates of high blood pressure and the problems it can cause, such as strokes and heart attacks. Dr. Ronald Victor, a cardiologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, wanted a new way to reach them. “Barbershops are a uniquely popular meeting place for African-American men,” Victor noted. His research, reported Monday at a cardiology conference, involved 303 men and 52 barbershops. One group of customers just got pamphlets and blood pressure tips while they were getting haircuts. Another group met with pharmacists in the barbershops and could get treatment if their blood pressure was high. At the start of the study, their top pressure number averaged 154. After six months, it fell by 9 points for customers just given advice and by 27 points for those who saw pharmacists. Nearly two-thirds of the men who saw pharmacists lowered their pressure to under 130 over 80 — the threshold for high blood pressure under current guidelines. Only 12 percent of the men who just got advice saw their blood pressure drop to that level. MARILYNN MARCHIONE (AP)

Polls show close election as House race comes to end
An adult film actress who said she had sex with President Trump offered Monday to return the $130,000 she was paid for agreeing not to discuss the alleged relationship. Stormy Daniels — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — is willing to repay the money she received as part of a 2016 agreement, as long as she can speak openly, according to a letter to Trump’s attorney. The agreement would be considered “null and void” after she returned the money, and would allow Clifford to speak about the relationship while she publishes any text messages, photos and videos she may have. The offer is valid until today, the letter said. (AP)

nation+world Police are exploring race as factor in deadly package explosions AUSTIN, TEXAS Two package bomb blasts a few miles apart killed a teenager and wounded two women in Austin on Monday, less than two weeks after a similar attack left a man dead in another part of the city. Investigators said the bombings are probably connected, and they are looking into whether race was a factor because all the victims were minorities. The first of Monday’s attacks killed a 17-year-old boy and wounded a 40-year-old woman, both of them black. As Police Chief Brian Manley held a news
conference to discuss that blast, authorities were called to the scene of another explosion that injured a 75-year-old Hispanic woman. Authorities suspect that both of Monday’s blasts were linked to a March 2 attack that killed 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House, a black man, and they urged the public to call police if they receive any unexpected packages. House’s death is now viewed as a homicide. Manley first suggested the blasts could constitute a hate crime after Monday’s first bombing. Following the second explosion hours later, he said authorities had not settled on a motive and could not rule anything out. In both the March 2 attack and

Three package bombs left on doorsteps in Austin, Texas, have exploded, killing two people.
Monday’s first explosion, the packages were left overnight on the victims’ doorsteps and were not mailed or sent by a delivery service, Manley said.
“There are similarities that we cannot rule out that these two items are, in fact, related,” Manley said. Investigators said it was possible that the victims were targeted because of their race. “We don’t know what the motive behind these may be,” Manley said. “We do know that both of the homes that were the recipients of these packages belong to African-Americans, so we cannot rule out that hate crime is at the core of this.” The office of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced Monday that it is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of those involved in the deadly package blasts.

House Intelligence Committee Republicans have completed a draft report in their year-long Russia probe that states they found no evidence President Trump or anyone affiliated with him colluded with Russian officials to affect the outcome of the 2016 elections. They determined that while the Russian government did pursue “active measures” to interfere in the 2016 election, it did not do so with the intention of helping Trump’s campaign, contradicting the findings of the intelligence community. “We’ve found no evidence of collusion,” Rep. K. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, above, who is in charge of the Russia probe, told reporters on Monday. He said the worst they uncovered was “perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings.” “But only Tom Clancy or Vince Flynn ... could take this series of inadvertent contacts with each other, meetings, whatever and weave that into some sort of a fiction, page-turner spy thriller,” Conaway said. “We found no evidence of any collusion.” The GOP’s conclusion comes as special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is ramping up its investigation into Trump’s team. The conclusion also contradicts the preliminary findings of committee Democrats. KAROUN DEMIRJIAN

Do walls really work? DHS has no real way to measure the effectiveness of Trump’s $18 billion barrier plan In this November photo, President Trump’s barrier wall prototypes stand on the Mexico border.
May implicates Russia in attack on former spy
cost as much as $486,000 each to build, and DHS has not said if the $18 billion overall cost projection is based on one or several of those designs. DHS officials have defended the expenditure by pointing to major decreases in arrests for illegal crossings in areas where tougher fencing was installed. In a new promotional video titled “Walls Work,” CBP said illegal traffic dropped 87 percent in San Diego after its two-layered barrier system was installed. “Border walls have proven to be extremely effective in preventing the flow of drugs and illegal aliens across our borders,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement this month, after a court victory allowing Homeland Security officials to move forward with fast-track construction plans. Added Nielsen: “Simply put — walls work.” NICK MIROFF
LONDON Russia is “highly likely” to blame for poisoning a former spy and his daughter with a militarygrade nerve agent, British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday, demanding Moscow give a compelling explanation or face “extensive” retaliation. May told lawmakers in a strongly worded statement that without a credible response from Russia by today, Britain would consider the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter “an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom.” She did not offer any specific retaliatory measures. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova dismissed May’s allegations as a “circus show in the British Parliament.” Skripal, 66, and his 33-yearold daughter, Yulia, remain in critical condition after being found unconscious March 4 in Salisbury. A police detective who came in contact with them is in serious but stable condition. May said British scientists have determined Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with Novichok, a class of nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union near the end of the Cold War. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Monday the poisoning “clearly came from Russia” and “certainly will trigger a response.” He said he doesn’t know if Russia’s government had knowledge of the poisoning.

IMMIGRATION More than a year after the government’s top oversight body urged the Department of Homeland Security to develop a way to measure the effectiveness of fencing and barriers along the border with Mexico, DHS has no such tool ready, even as President Trump prepares to pick the winning designs for his $18 billion border wall. Trump officials have dismissed criticism of their border security plan with a well-established defensive principle and simple retort: “Walls work.” But a February 2017 report by the Government Accountability Office found DHS has no way to measure how well they work, where they work best or whether less-expensive alternatives could be just as effective. Despite the assumption that illegal traffic enters through areas where fencing is absent, the report identified several sectors where more arrests occur in locations that have existing barriers. U.S. border agents collect “geotag” data, electronic markers that assign geographic locations, to map illegal crossings and arrests. But DHS has no means to gauge the extent to which those incursions are impeded by “tactical infrastructure,” the report noted, undermining the agency’s ability to avoid wasteful spending. “An assessment of border fencing’s contributions to border security operations could help position [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] to identify the cost effectiveness of border fencing compared to other assets the agency deploys,” the report said. DHS officials said last week they are working with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory to develop
such an evaluation system, and it may be ready later this year. President Trump is moving forward anyway. His public statements have demonstrated a keen interest in the aesthetic properties of the wall, along with its height. His administration has budgeted $1.6 billion for wall construction this year. Trump is scheduled to travel to San Diego today to view eight prototypes and likely announce one or more winning designs. The trip will be Trump’s first as president to California, a state his administration is suing for refusing to assist with federal immigration enforcement. Trump’s wall-building plan — stalled in Congress — would spend $18 billion over 10 years to add 316 miles of new barriers and replace aging fencing along another 407 miles. The 30-foot steel and concrete prototypes showcased in San Diego are far taller and more

WASHINGTONPOST.COM | FANCY STATS
Best bets to win are most efficient
How they stack up Winner Total Efficiency, or WTEff, is a team’s adjusted efficiency margin. The higher, the better. Every title winner since 2002 has sported a mark of 20.4 or higher, so here’s a look at the 18 teams in this year’s tournament that have a WTEff of at least 20.4. (TWP) Virginia
One statistic helps narrow field of potential champs to 18 teams
NCAA TOURNAMENT Last March, The Washington Post used one statistic to identify 26 teams capable of winning the NCAA Tournament. From the 26 schools singled out, 14 advanced to the Sweet 16, with three making the Final Four, including finalists North Carolina and Gonzaga. The telling statistic is dubbed WTEff, or Winner’s Total Efficiency. It represents a team’s adjusted efficiency margin — the difference between points scored and allowed per 100 possessions — according to stats guru Ken Pomeroy, who accounts for strength of schedule. Since 2002, when Pomeroy started listing stats, every NCAA champion has had a WTEff of at least 20.4. That low bar belongs to the 2014 Connecticut team. The 2008 Kansas Jayhawks remain the gold standard for efficiency
of points off 3-pointers but are also the second-best shooting team in the nation inside the arc and don’t rely on foul shots to score. No. 2 seed Purdue and No. 5 seed West Virginia are their biggest threats in the East Region.
The Blue Devils (29.1 WTEff) rank third in the nation in offensive efficiency and seventh on defense. They’re the best team at chasing down missed shots, putting up an offensive rebound rate of 39.1 percent. They don’t put opponents on the line, with the nation’s lowest ratio of free throw attempts to field goal attempts. A potential Sweet 16 runin with No. 3 seed Michigan State is the most dangerous threat for No. 2 seed Duke. MIKE HUME
*Below efficiency threshold of champs since 2002
(THE WASHINGTON POST)
with a WTEff of 32.9. Taking WTEff into consideration, three teams in this year’s field stand above the rest.
Virginia The Cavaliers’ defense has been wildly effective this season, and their offense is good enough to raise their WTEff to 32.1. Virginia’s defensive efficiency (84.4) matches Kentucky’s 2015 Final Four team. Virginia’s bracket is stacked with the No. 4 team according to WTEff — Cincinnati — as the No. 2 seed. Still, the Cavs are easily among the three best bets to take home the title.
Villanova The Wildcats (31.4 WTEff) can shoot from everywhere and own the most efficient offense (127.4) in the country. They score a ton

No. 5 Terps open with Princeton Making its 26th total appearance in the NCAA Tournament, the Maryland women’s basketball team received a No. 5 seed in the brackets released Monday night. Leading scorer Kaila Charles, below, and the Terps (25-7) face No. 12 Princeton (24-5) in Raleigh, N.C., on Friday (noon, ESPN2). Maryland received an at-large bid after advancing to the Big Ten title game, where it fell to Ohio State. The third-seeded Buckeyes will host the Atlantic-10 champion, 14th-seeded George Washington, on Saturday (1:30 p.m., ESPN2). Patriot League champ American got a No. 14 seed and visits No. 3 UCLA on Saturday (3:30 p.m., ESPN2). No. 10 Virginia will play No. 7 Cal on Friday (5 p.m., ESPN2) in Columbia, S.C. (EXPRESS)

Alternative nut butters
Looking for something a little more sophisticated than peanut butter to put on your toast? Or maybe you’re doing the Whole30 program or the Paleo diet — both of which p prohibit p peanuts. We tried 10 healthy alternatives to peanut butter, from bright green sprouted to a chickpea outed pumpkin seed butter bu ickpea alternative that could have subbed in for the real thing. MAURA JUDKIS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Pumpkin seed butter
Sneaky Chef Creamy No-Nut Butter: $13.99 for 16.2 oz
Nutty Novelties pistachio butter: $17.99 for two 3.5-ounce jars
Futters Pure Nut Butters walnut butter: $14.50 for 12 ounces
Ingredients: Yellow peas, canola oil, sugar, monoglyceride, salt, sunflower lecithin, cocoa powder, natural flavors
Ingredients: Pistachios, sea salt, sunflower oil
Ingredients: “Just walnuts”
Jiva Organics raw sprouted pumpkin seed butter: $14.99 for 8 ounces
Taste test: It plays well with a lot of allergies — and is completely nutfree as well as gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO, to boot. It’s a touch too that’ss your thing. o sweet, if that
Taste test: If you are the type of person who can inhale an entire bag of pistachios, consider trying them in their most concentrated form. This butter is salty and has a slight crunchiness to it. But the jars are smaller ller than a typical face lotion.
Gopal’s raw organic coconut butter: $13.25 for 16 ounces
The Amazing Chickpea creamy chickpea butter: $7.99 for 12 ounces
Ingredients: Raw organic coconut Taste test: Health food bloggers well-versed in the art of coconut butter recommend heating it for a few seconds in the microwave, or a warm water bath, to make it spreadable. But it would make a sweet breakfast on some toast, and it goes well with fruit.
Ingredients: Roasted chickpeas, roasted sunflower seeds, olive oil, cane sugar, natural flavor Taste test: This is the closest facsimile to PB&J. It nails the creamy texture and the saltiness, and the chickpeas are oh-so-close to the flavor of peanuts.

Taste test: Is it weird to describe this as kind of meaty? Because that’s what it is: a hearty spread, thicker than the rest, with a pleasant bitterness and umami to it. Pair it with apples and fig crackers for a healthy snack. Made of “just walnuts,” get. uts, it’s it s as raw as you can g
Ingredients: Organic raw sprouted pumpkin seeds
Pistachio and macadamia nut butter
Nutrawbar raw pistachio and macadamia butter organic superfood spread: $15.99 for 8 ounces
Taste test: It’s very green. If you put this in a sandwich for your kid, there’s a chance that lunchroom know-it-alls will see an opportunity and pounce. For adults who want to cut back on sugar, ar, this has an earthier flavor.
Skip the set and get a chef’s knife Trying to eat out less and cook healthier meals at home? Maybe you’ve been stalking that 18-piece cutlery set at the store. Just three words of advice: Don’t do it. People who sell kitchen knives for a living will tell you such sets are a waste of money. You will probably never use some of those blades (except as a backup for when your chef’s knife turns into a blunt instrument). Also, cheap blades start to dull virtually from the moment you remove them from the store. You’ll be far better served, experts say, investing in a single high-quality chef’s knife. The chef’s knife will perform practically any task required, whether chopping pp g vegetables, g , trimming trimmi mmin ng g meat m or slicing br bread. T CARMAN TIM CA (TWP)
88 Acres organic vanilla spice sunflower seed butter: $19.99 for two 14-ounce jars
Ingredients: Organic pistachios, organic macadamia nuts, organic vanilla bean
Ingredients: Organic sunflower seeds, organic cane sugar, organic sunflower oil, organic vanilla extract, organic cinnamon, organic nutmeg, sea salt
Taste test: It’s sweet and salty, with no sugar or salt, and boasts omega-3, manganese, potassium and fiber.
Taste test: It has a pumpkin spice vibe to it. It also has more zinc and iron than peanut butter, experts say.

Q. My boyfriend does everything slooowly. Getting ready to leave the apartment, preparing dinner (we take turns), driving, shopping. We are on two different wavelengths. His friends tease him about it, and I do too, but he doesn’t care. We have been dating for two years, and now that we live together it’s more annoying than before. Is this something that will eventually stop bothering me? IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH MOLASSES Perhaps. Or perhaps by the time you’re walking your future child to his or her first day of kindergarten, you’ll have your 45th knock-down, drag-out fight about it, right in front of everyone. The variables are many: how strong your relationship is otherwise, how flexible you are with accommodating each other’s traits, how much this matters
in your day-to-day lifestyle, how well you can communicate about it without letting resentment fester, how much you can compartmentalize it as one part of him that doesn’t have to be perfect in order to still be perfectly happy together. So, how much does it mean to you, and can you use this transition period as an opportunity to practice adjusting to it?
weird cousin moved away and we lost touch. Forty years later, he suddenly has been emailing. All of his primary family has passed away, and he and his wife are in poor health. My husband and I have no desire to rekindle this relationship. Do we need to make any explanation, or is it adequate to ignore the emails until he gets discouraged? WONDERING You know it’s not really adequate, or you wouldn’t be writing to me. I think you and your husband are adding to the discomfort rather than lessening it. I see no evidence this guy was cruel or manipulative, or that you lost touch because of bad behavior on his part. Would it be that hard to have a basic and occasional correspondence with him? If you can’t bring yourself to do that, then yes, you need to be more clear. Continuing to let someone try to connect when they aren’t capable of reading the silence just isn’t good human-ing. How about: “I appreciate that you got in touch and I wish you the best, but our lives are in such a different place now, we’re just not able to pick up where we left off.” Sound cruel? Maybe. But silence seems even crueler. Send questions to Dr. Andrea Bonior at baggage@wpost .com. Andrea is a licensed clinical psychologist and hosts a live chat Tuesdays at 1 p.m. at washingtonpost.com.

For routes in Rosie Perez, left, and Josh Radnor star as teachers in musical drama “Rise.”
On ‘Rise,’ theater lifts up students TELEVISION NBC’s “Rise,” premiering 10 p.m. Tuesday, comes with quite a pedigree: It’s from the “Friday Night Lights” producer who created “Parenthood” and a producer of Broadway’s “Hamilton.” With stars Josh Radnor (“How I Met Your Mother”) and Rosie Perez (“Fearless”) and a strong cast of young performers, including Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”), the drama about a small-town high school and its theater program clearly deserves attention. For Jason Katims, the chance to take a different approach to themes he explored on “Friday Night Lights” drew him to “Rise.” He was captivated by the “idea of being able to observe the people of this community and do it through this beautiful storytelling device of musical theater,” he says. The youngsters face challenges
that are both timeless and contemporary, including teen pregnancy and gender identity. Radnor plays Lou Mazzuchelli, who finds himself in a rut teaching English and trying to cope with family tensions. Lou takes over his school’s theater program despite scant experience and the fact that he’s leapfrogged a more experienced colleague (Perez). But Lou’s passion is real — for theater, for the students and for his Pennsylvania town, which is struggling after a steel mill’s closure. He challenges the status quo by staging the provocative musical “Spring Awakening.” “The core of the story,” Katims says, is “that Lou’s vision enables these students to see their lives in a different way and imagine … a different future for themselves than they might have had.”

trending “Plot twist .... Macron will suddenly show his vampire teeth and bite the unsuspecting neck.” @FALLENHERO24, tweeting about this creepy photo of French
President Emmanuel Macron hugging Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. The picture inspired some laughs on social media after Twitter user @AisiTaisiDemo shared it with the caption: “Season finale cliffhanger ending shot.” @Atharvp compared it to the end of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video.

“This [setup] was only because I am traveling and had to use a laptop. Once I’m home, it will be the same set-up as always.” @ROBERT_E_KELLY, the man who is known as “BBC Dad” thanks to a viral video last year, assuring his followers that his recent on-camera setup was not his home office. Saturday was the one-year anniversary of the video in which his two children burst into his office while he was being interviewed on TV, in an adorable family blooper moment.
“Taylor’s ‘Delicate’ video is the drunk sorority knockoff of the Kenzo ad with Margaret Qualley.”

@KGW, tweeting his thoughts on Taylor Swift’s new video for “Delicate,” in which she dances like no one is watching while wearing a fancy dress. Using frame-by-frame comparisons, @KGW argues that the video is too similar to a 2016 ad for Kenzo World perfume directed by Spike Jonze, starring actor and dancer Margaret Qualley.
“This offers a kind of sad glimpse at the way some huge ... political donors go through life: being told they are geniuses by very accomplished people who want their money.” @BUZZFEEDBEN, sharing his opinion on Betsy DeVos’ truly terrible “60 Minutes” interview. He tweeted that donors’ status enables them to be out-of-touch.
“Barbie wants to add feminism to its brand while still s aggressively adhering to western beauty standards.” w @SCIAGURATA, tweeting about how
the new Frida Kahlo Barbie doesn’t feature Kahlo’s unibrow. Many have complained about the Barbie on the principle that the Mexican artist — who p was a Communist — would hate it. Also, AFP reported that the late artist’s family objects to the doll.

POOCH CAFE | PAUL GILLIGAN
46 | 25 TODAY: Mostly sunny skies, but deceptively chilly for mid-March. Winds from the northwest, gusting up to 25 mph, draw in very chilly air. So highs struggle to make 45 degrees. Clear to partly clear tonight and quite cold. Lows range through the 20s with a light breeze. A few snow flurries could zip through on Wednesday.

be tired of hearing the same old news from the same tired sources; get out today and see what you can dig up.
