Civilian Kills Sailor on Base Norfolk, Va. A civilian approaching the guided-missile destroyer USS Mahan at Naval Station Norfolk on Monday night took a weapon from a sailor who was standing watch and used it to shoot and kill another sailor who was trying to help his colleague, Navy ofﬁcials said Tuesday. Navy security forces then killed the suspect, who was authorized to be on the base and did not bring his own weapon, ofﬁcials said. The identities of the two killed have not been released.

Wood Specialties of Pennsylvania — were covered by a federal statute that gives great protection to the exercise of religion. That would mean the government must show that the requirement is not a substantial burden on their religious expression and that there was no less intrusive way to provide contraceptive coverage to female workers.
As is often the case, Justice Anthony Kennedy — who voted two years ago to ﬁnd Obamacare unconstitutional — seemed to hold the balance. Some of his remarks favored the government, but he also worried that the rule would make it impossible for companies to object to paying for anything, including abortion coverage.
What is likely to be the signature ruling of the court’s term presents the justices with complicated questions about religious freedom and equality for female workers. It could have long-term implications for what other legal requirements companies could decline because of religious convictions. The challengers in the cases told the court in briefs that the law requires them “to do precisely what their religion forbids them or face draconian consequences.” The Obama administration responded in its briefs that the challengers could not point to “a single case in this nation’s history” that exempted a corporation from a neutral law that regulated commercial activities.

Seconds After Mudslide, Chaos Oso, Wash. First there was a “whoosh.” Elaine Young said she thought it might be a chimney ﬁre, a rush of air that lasted about 45 seconds. But when she stepped outside there was ominous silence. Something felt very wrong. And then she saw it. Behind the house, a wall of heavy mud had crashed through the neighborhood. Dark and sticky, the mile-long ﬂow Saturday heaved houses off their foundations, toppled trees and left a gaping cavity on what had been a tree-covered hillside. In the frantic rescue, searchers spotted mud-covered survivors by the whites of their waving palms. Now, days into the search, the scale of the mudslide’s devastation in a rural village north of Seattle is becoming apparent. At least 14 are conﬁrmed dead and dozens more are thought to be missing. Within hours of the mudslide, emergency crews were searching for life in a post-apocalyptic scene, dodging chunks of splintered birch trunks and half-buried pickups.

NSA to End Call Collection?

To assuage privacy concerns, the White House and some lawmakers are pushing forward with changes to a surveillance program that would leave the bulk storage of millions of Americans’ telephone records in the hands of phone companies, even though the ofﬁcials question whether the changes would do more to protect privacy. P re sident Ba r ac k Oba ma intends to ask Congress to end the bulk collection of Americans’ phone records. Instead, the government would ask phone companies to search their records for possible links to terrorism. Obama said that any alternatives to the government holding on

“After [Edward] Snowden, there was a lot of mistrust, and we have to deal with that,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Mike Rogers, above.
to the phone records posed problems and raised privacy issues. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said he believes the data is safer with the National Security Agency, even though he recommended it be moved from the agency’s custody. “We’re changing the program
based on a perception, not a reality,” Rogers said shortly before he introduced legislation that would end the program in its current form. Americans, Rogers said, don’t want the government holding onto their data. “They just didn’t have a comfort level with the NSA holding, in bulk, metadata, even though we had huge levels of protection,” Rogers said. The metadata is the number called, the number from which the call is made and the duration and time of the call, but not the content of the call or the callers’ names. Obama on Tuesday said the plan should alleviate concerns about the government storing massive amounts of data on Americans’ calls. The White House proposal and the House Intelligence Committee’s proposal both shift the custody of the phone records to the phone companies, which already hold on to the records for 18 months as required.

Report Details Killing by Agent Video | Studies
Me + my friend going to a loud, new bar.
Fearing imminent arrest in a triple slaying, Ibragim Todashev started acting suspiciously. His mood, once cooperative with investigators, became agitated. Shortly after agreeing to give a statement about his role in the 2011 slayings in Waltham, Mass. — killings that received renewed attention after the Boston Marathon bombings — Todashev, a friend of marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, ﬂipped a coffee table in his
Orlando, Fla., apartment, knocking down an FBI agent. Todashev then grabbed a pole and charged toward a Massachusetts trooper. The FBI agent shot Todashev several times, killing him last May, according to two reports Tuesday that provided the ﬁrst clear picture of the shooting and cleared the agent of any charges. The Justice Department echoed the Florida ﬁndings. Federal authorities have said in court ﬁlings that Todashev implicated Tsarnaev in the slayings. MIKE SCHNEIDER (AP)

Ukrainian Marines Leave Crimea Soldiers given choice: Return to mainland or work for Russia
A Ukrainian soldier gets emotional Tuesday as he watches comrades leave Crimea.
About 4,300 Ukrainian servicemen and 2,200 of their relatives have asked to leave Crimea, Defense Minister Ihor Tenyukh said Tuesday. That means about two-thirds of the 18,800 military personnel and relatives that he said were stationed on the Black Sea peninsula were tak-

Ukraine’s defense minister stepped down Tuesday after harsh criticism for authorities’ often-hesitant reaction to Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In an address to parliament in Kiev, Defense Minister Ihor Tenyukh denied that he had failed to issue clear instructions to his troops but reserved the right to resign. Lawmakers initially refused Tenyukh’s resignation but later accepted it and replaced him with Col. Gen. Mykhailo Koval. (AP)
Defense lawyer Brian Webber said Pistorius is “likely” to take the stand to open the defense case. “I don’t think we have a choice. It’s a question of when,” Webber said of Pistorius’ testimony, which legal experts describe as critical because the judge will have a chance to assess ﬁrsthand whether he is credible. The case will be decided by Judge Thokozile Masipa with help from two assessors. Earlier Tuesday, defense lawyer Barry Roux sought to show that Pistorius had a loving relationship with his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, referring to messages in which they exchanged compliments. (AP)

Giving last-minute kisses to wives and girlfriends, Ukrainian marines in Crimea piled into buses Tuesday to head back to the mainland. Former comrades saluted them from outside a base that has been overrun by Russian forces. It was a low-key exit from the eastern port of Feodosia, with fewer than a dozen friends or relatives on hand to bid the marines farewell. A troop transporter bearing black Russian military plates trailed the bus as it pulled away. Troops were given the stark choice of staying in Crimea and switching to work for Russia or leaving the peninsula to keep their jobs with Ukraine.

Marie Collins is not your ordinary papal adviser. Sexually assaulted as a child by a hospital chaplain, Collins went on to become a leading Irish activist demanding justice for the victims of priestly abuse and a ﬁerce critic of the Catholic Church’s handling of the scandal. Now she has been named to Pope Francis’ commission on setting sex abuse policy, one of eight people — half of them women — who will help craft the panel’s scope and advise the church on best practices to protect children. In an interview with The Associated Press, Collins said her top priority was for the Vatican to punish those bishops who have covered up for priests who raped children. “There’s no point in my mind of having gold-plated child-protec-

tion programs in place if there’s no sanction for a bishop who decides to ignore them,” Collins said by telephone from her home in Dublin.
“The reason everyone is so angry is not because they have abusers in their ranks. Abusers are in every rank of society. It’s because of the systemic cover-up.” Collins was sexually assaulted by the Rev. Paul McGennis in 1960 when she was 13 and in the hospital. He also took lewd photos of her. She battled anxiety, depression and agoraphobia for decades and was in and out of psychiatric hospitals. When she ﬁnally summoned the courage to report her abuser, her pastor told her it was her fault. Francis announced the initial members of the commission after coming under ﬁre from victims’ groups for a perceived lack of attention to the scandal, which has cost the church its credibility — and billions of dollars — in traditionally Catholic strongholds of the U.S., Europe and Latin America. Collins acknowledged that she may be disappointed, but said she felt it was “worth taking the chance” to participate, even at the risk of losing credibility with other abuse victims.

‘Snatch and Grabs’ Rise Metro officials again warn riders of a spike in electronics thefts Washington Metro said thefts at its more than 80 stations have spiked, especially “snatch and grabs” of personal electronic devices. Once again Metro ofﬁcials are warning riders to keep a close eye on their electronic devices — especially iPhones. There were 643 iPhones stolen in the system in 2013, compared to 491 in 2012, ofﬁcials said. Bike thefts at Metro stations are up too — 411 were stolen last year, compared to 330 in 2012.
The approximate proportion of victims who are women. The thieves snatching the devices are primarily young men acting alone, according to Metro Transit Police. (T WP)
In one of the latest incidents, a woman was walking along the platform at Capitol South Metro station Saturday afternoon when a teen came up behind her, grabbed her iPhone and ran. The woman chased the teen, but fell as she was running down the platform. She got up and continued to chase him. The boy was caught just outside the station and arrested, and
her phone was recovered. Although this case had a happy ending, Metro ofﬁcials remind riders that it is “never a good idea to chase a suspect.” In 2012, a program analyst at the Pentagon broke his arm chasing a man who had snatched his iPad. “No property is worth the risk of getting hurt,” said Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. Instead, officials said, riders should get a good description of the suspect. Metro Transit Police Chief Ron Pavlik told NBC4 that the video of the robbery at Capitol South should be “an eye-opener” for riders that such incidents can happen at any time and anywhere on the system.

We e k d ay s e r v ic e w i l l b e increased on the W4 route, Deanwood-Alabama Avenue.
Maryland Metro is adding more weekday evening service on Route 89 in Laurel, Md. The No. 87, known as the Laurel Express, will extend from Greenbelt to New Carrollton. Route 88 will be eliminated.
The A11 and A12 buses will no longer serve the former Landover Mall site. The limited-stop K9 route has been extended to the federal FDA-FRC complex in White Oak.
Virginia Metrobus is launching two new routes: the 10R will provide service between Alexandria, Crystal City and Rosslyn during the weekday rush hour. Route 10S will replace Route 9E service during weekday rush hours. Routes 10A and 10E will serve the Pentagon and routes 10R and 10S will operate to Rosslyn, bypassing the Pentagon. A new bus route will provide weekend and holiday morning service from Union Station to Reagan National Airport. The 13Y will replace all 13F and 13G service. Also some changes will go into effect in the McLean-Crystal City routes.

Student May Have Been a Threat Prosecutors said Tuesday there is evidence that a Georgetown University student charged last week with possessing the biological toxin ricin may have wanted to poison someone with the powdery substance. Daniel Harry Milzman, 19, was arrested last week after investigators found a potentially lethal amount of the toxin in his dorm room. Court papers filed Tuesday describe Milzman as an emotional college student who struggled with depression and vacillated between wanting to hurt himself — and someone else.
Police were called to Daniel Milzman’s dorm after he confided in a friend, showing him the ricin he had produced. The friend told investigators that he didn’t think Milzman was suicidal but that he was “definitely a threat to someone,” according to a document filed by prosecutors. Milzman told his friend through tears that he was feeling anxious and unfulfilled, according to prosecutors. Milzman also told the friend that he “scared himself” and that he was confiding in him because “part of Milzman wanted to be dared to use it and the other part of Milzman wanted to avoid using it,” according to the filing. (T WP)
During a detention hearing in federal court, Milzman’s attorney told the judge that the college sophomore had been battling depression since high school and that he needs treatment — not incarceration. “He was having a hard time in his life. He was a scared 19-year-old kid,” said defense attorney Danny Onorato. The judge ordered Milzman released to an in-patient psychi-
How Much Do You Need to Make to Afford D.C. Rent? Washington According to a new report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, a minimum-wage worker in D.C. — where the wage floor is $8.25 an hour — would need to work 137 hours a week to afford what the Department of Housing and Urban Development considers a fair market rent for a modest two-bedroom home. Put another way: A local household would need 3.4 full-time minimum-wage workers to afford such a home. Or, a single earner in that household would need to make a lot more money: $28.25 an hour to be exact. The National Low Income Housing Coalition refers to this
last statistic as a “housing wage.” It’s the amount of money a person would need to earn per hour to afford the local fair market rent (including utilities) for a two-bedroom home, based on a 40-hour week and a 52-week working year that assumes zero time off. This ﬁgure also assumes that a person spends no more than 30 percent of his or her income on housing. In D.C., HUD’s fair market twobedroom rent is $1,469 a month, meaning a household would need to make more than $58,000 a year. The District currently has one of the largest gaps in the country between what minimum-wage workers earn and what they’d need to make to afford such a home. EMILY BADGER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

offense that carries a prison sentence of at least 10 years. Prosecutors also said in court papers that Milzman made “harassing and threatening” comments toward another student early this year. A recent Georgetown graduate told The Washington Post last week that Milzman appeared to have written Facebook messages calling the student a “useless waste of space” and suggesting he would be happy if the other student killed himself. Law enforcement ofﬁcials said the student obtained a “stay away no-contact order” from the university and that Milzman then obtained his own no-contact order.

Bowser Hits Her Stride
A new poll puts the Ward 4 Council member neck and neck with Mayor Gray
Hope for Gray Gray, however, retains a path to victory, albeit a narrowing one. A core group of voters remains determined to turn out for him — unlike Bowser, who has attracted
Don’t Forget Catania
AMANDA VOISARD (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
A once-fractious primary battle for the D.C. mayoralty has narrowed into a two-person race between incumbent Vincent Gray and D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser, who are in a dead heat for the Democratic nomination, according to a new Washington Post poll. Bowser, Ward 4, has surged to gain the support of 30 percent of likely voters, more than doubling her support since the last Post survey in early January. Gray’s support is unchanged at 27 percent, showing steadiness but no growth in the wake of new corruption allegations from federal prosecutors. The polling indicates that, across a ﬁeld of eight candidates, Bowser is now best positioned to capitalize on concerns about Gray’s honesty. Her surge also offers more evidence that the electorate sees little connection between the city’s chief executive and its economic boom; by a two-to-one margin, voters say the city is on the right track, according to the poll. If voters elect Bowser, they would be voting out a one-term mayor for the second election in a row. “The city has evolved so much in the last 20 years, our success is not dictated on who the mayor is,” said Jerry Crute, a 46-year-old Capitol Hill resident. “Most of the candidates would do an excellent job.” But Crute said the federal investigation has disqualiﬁed Gray, and he is now choosing between Bowser and fellow Council member Tommy Wells, Ward 6. Walking into the voting booth, he said, “will be a true gut-check moment: Who do I truly believe can beat Gray?”
Muriel Bowser has risen above a crowded field to become the candidate most likely to beat Mayor Vincent Gray in the primary.
support from a more persuadable and uncertain slice of the electorate. And there are signs that fewer voters than usual will turn out for Tuesday’s election, which could beneﬁt Gray and his more dedicated base. Fifty-four percent of registered Democrats surveyed say they are certain to vote, a ﬁgure that lags behind previous mayoral primaries. Marvin Lee Battle, a 75-yearold Congress Heights resident, said he’s determined to vote for Gray. “If you’ve been in D.C. for a while, you know what happened to Marion Barry,” said Battle, referring to the former mayor’s 1990 prosecution on drug charges. “They’re doing the same thing to Gray. I’m really not supporting Gray so much as I disagree with what the government is doing.” Still, three-quarters of likely Democratic voters overall say Gray has been investigated fairly. And roughly six in 10 believe allegations aired in federal court earlier this month by businessman Jeffrey Thompson that Gray knew about the secret campaign.
Bowser Can Still Rise
The Post Poll If the Democratic primary were held today, for whom would you vote? (among likely voters) Muriel Bowser
12% 27% 27%
Tommy Wells Jack Evans Andy Shallal Others None/no opinion
6% 12% 6% 5% 7% 12% 9% 18%
THE WASHINGTON POST REACHED 1,402 D.C. ADULTS MARCH 20-23 ON L ANDLINE AND MOBILE PHONES. OF THOSE, 863 ARE REGISTERED DEMOCR ATIC VOTERS AND 391 ARE LIKELY VOTERS IN THE APRIL 1 PRIMARY. THE MARGIN OF ERROR FOR THE L AT TER GROUP IS 6.5 POINTS.
The poll indicates that Bowser has more room to grow. Asked whom they prefer as their second choice, 22 percent of likely voters pick Bowser, while only 7 percent choose Gray. And nearly half of likely voters say there is a chance they could change their minds — far more uncertainty than four years ago at an earlier stage. Among those who say they could change their minds, more say Bowser is their second choice (24 percent) than Gray (10 percent). Much of Bowser’s new support comes from voters who were previously undecided — and much comes from those who previously supported Council member Jack Evans, D-Ward 2, who has lost more support since January than any other candidate, according to the poll.
Mayor Vincent Gray’s job approval rating in the most recent poll. In January, it was 59 percent positive to 38 percent negative among registered voters. It is now evenly split — matching former Mayor Adrian Fenty’s numbers before his primary loss in 2010. Additionally, nearly half of voters say the scandal will be a major factor in their vote, and more than a third say Gray did something illegal. (T WP)
Should Vincent Gray prevail, his political future would by no means be assured. This month, AtLarge Council member David Catania launched an independent campaign to challenge the Democratic nominee in the fall general election. As in January, Gray continues to run even with Catania, at 41 percent apiece among all registered voters — potentially setting the city up for its most competitive general election ever. Should Muriel Bowser prevail, Catania’s fortunes would reverse. Bowser leads Catania by more than 30 percentage points. (T WP)
Yari Lorenzo, a 39-year-old Takoma resident, said she is most attracted to an outsider candidate, restaurateur Andy Shallal, and would vote for him if Gray weren’t on the ballot. “But I’m voting for Muriel Bowser,” the homemaker said, saying she felt Bowser had the better chance to unseat Gray. “It sounds awful, but it comes down to that.”
The Other Challengers None of Gray’s six other challengers have seen their support grow appreciably, according to the poll. Wells showed a slight but statistically insigniﬁcant uptick, from 12 to 14 percent. A campaign message focused on ethics and good government has not translated into broad support beyond those focused on those issues. Support for Evans slipped from 12 percent to 6 percent, putting him in a dead heat for fourth place with Shallal, a ﬁrst-time candidate. No other candidate shows support above 3 percent.

Let’s Play Matchmaker CHRIS O’MEARA (AP)
The Wizards will have just 11 regular-season games left after tonight’s meeting with the Phoenix Suns. And barring a calamitous collapse, Washington will make the playoffs for the first time since the 2007-08 season. In the fluid playoff picture, the Wizards could finish anywhere from fourth to eighth place, although they seem destined for a No. 5 or 6 seed. The team they draw in the first round could go a long way in determining how far the Wizards can go, so let’s take a look at some possible matchups. ELLIOT T SMITH (FOR E XPRESS)

Season record vs. Wizards: 3-1
Season record vs. Wizards: 0-2, one game remaining (April 5)
The Raptors are in line to win the Atlantic Division and earn the No. 3 seed. Toronto had the Wizards’ number in the teams’ first three contests, winning by an average of 10.3 points per game, but Washington captured a thrilling, triple-overtime win in Toronto in late February. The Raptors have the guards in DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry to keep up with Washington and a solid group of interior players led by Jonas Valanciunas, but they’ve also had a long playoff drought and could have some postseason jitters. Odds the Wizards advance: It would be a tossup between two similarly built teams.
Season record vs. Wizards: 0-3
Season record vs. Wizards: 2-1, one game remaining (April 14)
One of the unheralded stories of the season is what Tom Thibodeau’s Bulls have been able to accomplish while playing with a ragtag unit missing the injured Derrick Rose and the traded Luol Deng. Chicago is a nasty, smothering squad personified by professional pest and MVP candidate Joakim Noah and the Bulls have only gotten better since the Wizards beat them twice in a five-day span back in January. Chicago is arguably the worst matchup Washington could draw in the postseason.
The Nets got off to a painfully slow start before rounding into form. They currently hold a 1½-game edge over Washington for the fifth spot in the conference, meaning the odds are slim these teams would meet in the playoffs. That’s too bad, because Washington has a big advantage in youth and speed against Brooklyn. Rookie coach Jason Kidd figures to have some speed bumps in coaching playoff basketball, too. The Wizards have won all three matchups, but they’ve been close (by an average of 5.7 points a game).
If the Wizards really stumble down the stretch, they could find themselves in the No. 7 slot and with an unfortunate matchup against the defending champs. Washington has acquitted itself well this season against its division rivals, but LeBron James & Co. would be geared up to get this series done as quickly as possible. The Wizards held a fourthquarter lead in a March 10 matchup with Miami, but Dwyane Wade took over down the stretch for a 99-90 Heat triumph.
Odds the Wizards advance: This would probably not end well for the Wizards.
Odds the Wizards advance: A good matchup for Washington, but highly unlikely.
Odds the Wizards advance: Miami could very well sweep the Wizards in this mismatch.

Bickmeier suggested RGIII could drive the pace car. By Monday, track officials had reached out to the Redskins. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, who helped found the American Football League in 1960, died at his home on Tuesday afternoon. He was 95. Bills president Russ Brandon made the announcement at the NFL winter meetings in Orlando, Fla. Wilson was the founder and sole owner of the Bills after establishing the team with the upstart AFL in 1960. He played a key role in the league merger’s with the NFL. He was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2009. Wilson died at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., around 1:40 p.m., said Mary Mazur, spokeswoman for the Wayne County medical examiner’s ofﬁce. He had been receiving in-home hospice care. Wilson had been in failing health for several years. JOHN WAWROW (AP)

Owner talks to NFL about his new Native American foundation Redskins
The day after he issued a fourpage letter to fans, announcing the founding of a foundation that will aid Native Americans, Redskins owner Dan Snyder presented his vision to his fellow owners at the NFL’s annual meetings. Snyder also introduced the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation chief executive ofﬁcer Gary L. Edwards to NFL ofﬁcials and solicited their support. Snyder declined comment when asked to speak on the meeting and the founding of the charitable organization. But general manager Bruce Allen and Edwards both said the team received positive response. Allen said that the creation of the foundation came in response to the
“We are hopeful that when his team ﬁnally stands on the right side of history and changes its name, he will honor the commitment to Native Americans that he is making today.” — R AY H A LBRIT TER, AN ONEIDA INDIAN NATION TRIBAL REPRESENTATIVE, IN A STATEMENT RELEASED MONDAY
reaction Snyder received from a letter he issued to fans in October, insisting that despite criticisms, he didn’t intend to change his team’s name. Edwards — a Cherokee, who recently retired as deputy assistant director of the United States Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security — said a former coworker who lives near Allen suggested the
two meet because of the belief that Edwards could help the Redskins. Snyder already had started visiting reservations, but Edwards provided further guidance and conducted a survey of 100 reservations, asking them about their most pressing needs. Edwards, who himself said he has “no problem” with the name, said the Indian people they talked to cared very little about the Redskins’ nickname, and instead they shared “more pressing needs.” Snyder began working to meet those needs, donating 3,000 coats to tribes. In the past year, Snyder has faced criticism over the team’s name, which some Native American tribes have called offensive. Several state and local ofﬁcials have also spoken out. Last season, the Redskins drew protests at many of their road games and groups have lobbied NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to take action. MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

New York, which last failed to top the payroll rankings in 1998, was a distant second at $204 million. After that, it was another huge gap to Philadelphia at $180 million, followed by Boston at $163 million and Detroit at $162 million. (AP)

Barclays Center hosted this year’s Atlantic 10 tournament. In 2017, the ACC will move to the Brooklyn, N.Y., venue for two years.
ACC Tourney to N.Y. League signs a deal to move to Barclays Center for two years College Basketball The ACC is taking its men’s basketball tournament to New York. A person familiar with the situation said Tuesday the league has completed a two-year deal to bring the tournament to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center starting in 2017. The Atlantic 10 was scheduled to play its tournament there through 2017, but will move in exchange for playing an ACC/A-10 doubleheader at Barclays during the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. The A-10 tournament will then return to Barclays for three years starting in 2019.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league hasn’t publicly commented on the move. The ACC and Atlantic 10 are scheduled to hold a news conference today at the Barclays Center to announce the deal. It wasn’t immediately clear where the Atlantic 10 will hold its tournament in 2017 and 2018, nor which teams from each conference would participate in the doubleheaders. The ACC will hold next year’s tournament in Greensboro, N.C., home to the league headquarters, before going to Washington, D.C., in 2016. The move to New York represents a shift from the ACC tournament’s Southern roots after years of conference realignment. Louisville’s arrival in July will mark the
seventh former Big East school to join the 15-team league since 2004. The ACC has primarily held its tournament in the state of North Carolina while rotating it through Atlanta, Landover, Md., Washington, D.C., and Tampa, Fla., during its 61-year history. Commissioner John Swofford has talked publicly about holding the tournament in New York at least since 2011 when the league announced it would add Pittsburgh and Syracuse from the Big East. Those schools joined the ACC last summer along with Notre Dame, which joined in all sports except football. Louisville will arrive after a one-year stay in the American Athletic Conference to replace Maryland, which is leaving for the Big Ten. A ARON BEARD (AP)
Gary Williams Honored: Former Maryland men’s basketball coach Gary Williams has been elected to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. Williams confirmed the development in a brief telephone conversation Tuesday, calling the honor “very gratifying.” Williams is part of an eight-member class of 2014 that will be enshrined on Nov. 23 in Kansas City, Mo. Other inductees include Grant Hill (Duke) and Shaquille O’Neal (LSU). Williams, who retired from coaching in 2011 after 461 wins at Maryland and a national title in 2002, has also been nominated for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. That induction class will be announced during the Final Four in early April. ALE X PREWIT T (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Best Goody Bags Ever Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs wants free swag for his son’s birthday party gift bags 23
Shakira’s Many Styles
TV TONIGHT 8:30 P.M.
‘Suburgatory’ (ABC) Tessa (Jane Levy, below) isn’t sure how to react when Lisa announces she’s proposing to Malik, so she seeks advice from George. But the proposal doesn’t go as planned. George thinks his girlfriend is rude to her colleagues.
The Latin pop star embraces her global musical range on her new self-titled album Album Review
So long, Shawn and Gus; it’s been good to know you. As the lighthearted police drama ends its eight-season run, Shawn (James Roday, below left) has a big decision to make as he and Gus (Dule Hill, below right) join forces with Lassiter, Henry and Woody to investigate an executive’s murder.
‘Hot in Cleveland’ (TVLAND) The sitcom opens its fifth season with a live telecast that also serves as a crossover with its spinoff, “The Soul Man” — which is also airing its season premiere live. “Soul” star Cedric the Entertainer will appear in the “Cleveland” episode.
‘Doll & Em’ (HBO) Em can’t come up with any tears while filming a funeral scene, but Doll, who’s been cast as an extra, pulls it off easily. Between takes, Doll gets to know John Cusack and has a minor accident. (TRIBUNE MEDIA)
Is there anyone alive who doesn’t have a secret fondness for Shakira? She’s an avatar of pop-culture globalization — a Colombian singer-songwriter of Lebanese descent whose songs are a multicultural grab bag of melodies from the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and, most prominently on her new, self-titled album, the American South. Shakira has weird, very specific tastes: “Shakira,” out now, is not her ﬁrst album to feature near-lethal doses of reggae and ’90s alt-rock, as if she hasn’t yet realized that those things are mostly awful. Yet she also has the broadest canvas of any pop diva in memory and still sounds instantly, recognizably like herself. “Shakira,” her charming, awkward, immensely appealing new disc, tests this theory. It seems like an uneasy bargain between what she wants (rootsy, often acousticbased pop with a rangy feel) and what the producers want (hits). The singer routinely tries to contemporize her sound, but seldom has the divide seemed so great. The best tracks split the difference: The new wave/reggae hybrid
Shakira has the broadest canvas of any pop diva in memory and still sounds instantly like herself.
AP AND THINKSTOCK/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” is an energetic duet with Rihanna. “Loca por Ti” (one of a handful of Spanish tracks on the album) is ’80s jukebox country, ﬁnely rendered. The midtempo Latin pop track “You Don’t Care About Me” recalls vintage Marc Anthony. Taylor Swift haunts the disc’s weakest track, “Spotlight” (which sounds like a reheated “Red” outtake), as well as the folk ballad “23,” one of its best. Shakira has never been much of a lyricist, but “23” is clunkier, and also braver, than Swift would ever dare to be.
Shakira has four fully formed emotions: Reproachful, Cheery, Let’s Dance and I Want to Do Things to You. She’s commanding on the Spanish-language songs, playful on the bangers, subdued on the songs that are obviously illsuited for her, such as the Nashville ballad “Medicine,” a collaboration with Blake Shelton, her fellow judge on “The Voice.” They sing at each other and both of them sound as if they’d rather be anywhere else. Shelton treats her with unusual delicacy, as if he was enlisted partly for his hit-making skills and partly to stop her from running away. ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Israeli Fans Finally Get Satisfaction: A promoter for the Rolling Stones said the band will play its first show in Israel in Tel Aviv on June 4. Some musicians stay away from the Middle Eastern nation due to politics while for others it’s a matter of logistics. Whenever a major band comes it’s big news. Other big names playing Israel this year include Neil Young, Justin Timberlake and the Pixies, who canceled a visit in 2010 apparently for political reasons. (AP)

One Surprise After Another Despite spending nearly half her life under the glare of the cameras, Jennifer Aniston admits she’s still not used to baggage that comes with it, from paparazzi to the tabloid headlines. Her secret is not believing the hype that envelops her. “There’s times when you see people climbing and getting success and you start to see, oh, they’re starting to really change,” Aniston said. “So I always just make the effort to be as humble and grateful as possible.” In a recent interview, Aniston chatted about challenging herself, a possible sequel to last year’s “We’re the Millers” and turning 45. You’re doing a sequel to “Horrible Bosses.” Any other characters you’d like to revisit?
I think Rose and the Millers would be fun, to kind of see where that’s going to go, and I know we’re

probably going to do another one of those. You’re producing and starring in the upcoming drama “Cake.” How interested are you in more work behind the camera?
It’s almost more interesting. I think there’s something so wonderful
about being part of the process from the seed of the idea to seeing it come to life on a screen. And to have a hand in that creatively, not just showing up as an actor for hire. You recently celebrated your 45th birthday. Do you pause to reﬂect on such milestones?
Books Fans of “Portlandia,” rejoice! — in a non-competitive, earth-friendly way, of course. McSweeney’s has released “The Portlandia Activity Book,” ($28) by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, creators of the hipper-than-thou IFC comedy series. This spiral-bound collection — suitable for trading at the farmers market — is full of
games, tests, art projects and advice guaranteed to help you Portlandactualize. (All this for just $28 — How much is that in CHE hours?) If you’ve a l w a y s w a n ted to put a bird on it, but didn’t know where to star t, here are four easy-to-use stencils, including the Indigo Bunting, which is so handy for “empty spaces that could ﬁt a bird.” To get your creative juices ﬂowing, try using the blank page to “illustrate the sound of fruit ripening in a community garden.”
More experienced artists will enjoy “Paint By Punk Numbers,” using 29 different shades of black, from “Black Sabbath Black” to “Misﬁts Mosh Pit Black Eye Black.” (Kids will want to start on the Non-Normative Coloring Book.) For enhanced spiritual direction, add the following Tarot cards to your pack: The Recycler, The Beekeeper and The Bodily Fluid Artist (“She embodies passion, conf lict, and aggression, with grim sexuality thrumming under all she does.”).

“Homeland” actor James Rebhorn died Friday at age 65 of skin cancer. PEOPLE
Is that harder or easier when you’re in the spotlight?
Website Posts Actor’s Self-Written Obituary
You just have to work really hard to tune out the noise and the static. Because it gets louder, and people really have an opinion, and you don’t want to shy away from taking chances for fear of what people will say, or living in the wreckage of the future (of) what may be if I do this.
Actor James Rebhorn, who appeared in “Homeland” and “Scent of a Woman,” penned his own obituary that appears on the website for St. Paul Lutheran Church in Jersey City, N.J. Rebhorn died Friday at age 65 of skin cancer. He wrote that without his wife and two daughters “his life would have been little more than a vapor.” Rebhorn concluded that he was a lucky man in every way. (AP)
Though you may not have a checklist, are there other things you want to achieve in Hollywood?
I just want to keep tr ying to surprise myself and I want to keep challenging myself and have the courage to really do that, in spite of possible failure. SANDY COHEN (AP)
Now You Can Actually ‘Put a Bird On It’ ‘The Portlandia Activity Book’ brings the show’s quirk to life
I guess it is a milestone. I really try not to focus on it too much, to be honest. Society focuses on it way more than we need to. I think it’s always important to reflect anyway, no matter what age you’re approaching or what milestone is in front of you. I was never a ‘where do you see yourself in five years’ person. I had no idea, and I didn’t have a checklist, which really creates a lot less stress in your life.

wallet-sized Conversation Starter Cards, such as “I used to think gender was binary.” It’s all here to “enrich the Paciﬁc Northwestern part of your psyche.” In their introduction, Armisen and Brownstein promise that “by the time you’ve made it to the end, you will have arrived at a higher ﬂannel-insulated state of consciousness, imbued with the heady conﬁdence of a spoken-word poet at open-mic night.” Look for a copy at your local feminist bookstore. If it’s anything like the show’s incompetent shop, the book will take a year to arrive. RON CHARLES (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Spotify Slashes Prices for College Students Spotify is wooing U.S. college students with a $5-a-month premium music deal, half off the regular rate. It hopes to entice a generation of music lovers that is more likely to stream music than buy CDs.

The price reverts to normal after graduation. (AP)

“Those in search of a nice dose of nostalgic frustration … should look no further than Snake ’97.” — ZACH EPSTEIN AT BGR.COM talks
about a mobile app, “Snake ’97,” which recreates the classic Nokia game, “Snake.” The object of the game, which many will remember, is to get the snake to eat a ball of pixels without letting its head circle into its body or a wall. The app is free to download at Apple’s iOS App Store.

dissects the act of “ﬁngertenting,” a gesture made famous by no-goodniks like Mr. Burns of “The Simpsons.” In reality, researchers say the gesture doesn’t usually signify malevolence, but conﬁdence. Ex-cell-ent.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Others will do you a great deal of good, but at first it may seem as though all you’re getting is opposition and criticism. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Tell the truth, and you’re sure to wind up right where you want to be — not back in a situation that gives you nothing you need. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A personal situation arises that requires a great deal of tact. You may be saddened to realize that a difficult choice must be made. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’re being tempted by someone who is only trying to make mischief. He or she has no real stake in the situation — but you do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Options can be explored with a little more freedom, but take care that you don’t let time slip away from you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’re not ready to take that leap of faith. A little more soul-searching is necessary before you can let go like that.
