She was able to call firefighters, but they were stymied for a while, too — until they detached the commode and carried it into the yard to smash it apart and set her free. (EXPRESS)
The police chief of Sperry, Okla., issued himself a $300 speeding ticket, but only after being caught on video by someone who complained. Chief Justin Burch apologized on the department’s Facebook page Saturday, saying he was “wrong in traveling at 75 and 80 mph.” He didn’t specify the limit, but it was believed to be no more than 50 mph. He admitted he wasn’t sure he would have issued the ticket if not for the complaint. (AP)

Building Museum gets a case of hives
Summer installation draws its inspiration from insect dwellings
“Hive” at the National Building Museum will feature more than 2,700 paper tubes that create three interconnected forms in the museum’s hall.
as well as performances and acoustic experimentation,” Studio Gang founding principal Jeanne Gang said in a news release. “Using wound paper tubes, a common building material with unique sonic properties, and interlocking them to form a catenary dome, we create a hive for these activities.” The installation forms part of the museum’s Summer Block Party series, which in past years has included a giant maze, a
ball-pit “beach” and icebergs. “The Beach” was perhaps the most popular, at least in terms of social media fanfare, belonging in a period of Instagram-famous exhibitions in D.C. that have gone on to include “Wonder” at the Renwick Gallery and the still-crowded Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum. “Hive” opens to the public July 4 and runs through Sept. 4.

Montgomery County is testing wireless internet aboard some Ride On buses this spring. Ride On is the first public bus system in the region to offer free Wi-Fi. The technology is being tested on four buses this spring, but plans are to install it on 12 more buses this summer. The goal is to get the service rolling on the system’s fleet of 365 buses, county transportation officials said. The technical update is costing Montgomery County $2,300 per bus, according to county officials. (TWP)

EXHIBITS Last year, it was icebergs. This year, the National Building Museum’s summer installation will be hives. As in, insect hives. Not the rash. The installation — literally called “Hive” — will feature more than 2,700 paper tubes, each ranging in size from a few inches to 10 feet tall. There will be three interconnected forms, with pink interiors and shiny silver exteriors, and the largest hive will be about 60 feet tall. Designed by Studio Gang, an urban design and architecture firm in New York and Chicago, the domes won’t just be for Instagramming. The smaller chambers will also have chimes and drumlike tubes that are meant to encourage interaction. “We’ve designed a series of chambers shaped by sound that are ideally suited for intimate conversations and gatherings

Georgetown faces past built on slavery University pays homage to 272 men and women who were sold in 1838 THE DISTRICT About 100 men and women whose ancestors were once sold as slaves to fund the nascent Georgetown University gathered at that university Tuesday for an emotional worship service of remembrance and repentance. Maryland’s Jesuit priests sold 272 slaves in 1838 and used the proceeds of the sale to secure the future of the floundering new college. That sale became well known only last year, through the research of genealogists and then widespread publicity. Now, the university is grappling with how to respond to the new knowledge of its history — as are dozens of people who have learned their ancestors were once enslaved by men of God and sold by those priests to even more brutal slavery in Louisiana. The worship service Tuesday — part of a full day of events in which Georgetown renamed a building in honor of Isaac Hawkins, the first of the 272 slaves listed on the document of sale — was the first time Georgetown had gathered these descendants together on campus. Sandra Green Thomas, a leader in the new community of descendants, spoke during the service. “Their pain was unparalleled,”

she said about the people who were enslaved. “Their pain is still here. It burns in the soul of every person of African-American origin in the United States.” She spoke also of the slaves’ and their descendants’ faith — faith in the ever-deferred promise of America and the Catholic religion their Jesuit captors taught them. Even when they were sold to Louisiana and distant from a church, many of the 272 slaves kept their faith and passed it on to their descendants. That tradition has lasted through to the present. Many of the descendants who learned about their family history in the past year or two grew up in Catholic families and were stunned to learn that the faith that extended through their family for years
was the legacy of slavery. The Rev. Tim Kesicki, president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, spoke of the Maryland Jesuits who owned the slaves in the 1830s. “Today, the Society of Jesus, who helped to establish Georgetown University and whose leaders enslaved and mercilessly sold your ancestors, stand before you and say we have greatly sinned,” he said. “With the pain that will never leave us, we resist moving on, but embrace moving forward with hope.” Another campus building was renamed after Anne Marie Becraft, a free woman of color who taught Catholic black girls in what was then the town of Georgetown.

N.Y. may force Uber to add tipping to app
President Trump signs the “Buy American, Hire American” order Tuesday while visiting Snap-on in Kenosha, Wis.
Trump targets visas he says harm workers ‘Buy American, Hire American’ order aims to curb abuse of H-1B POLITICS President Trump signed an order Tuesday he said should help American workers whose jobs are threatened by skilled immigrants. Trump toured the headquarters of tool manufacturer Snapon Inc., in Kenosha, Wis., and signed the order dubbed “Buy American, Hire American,” aimed at curbing what his administration says are hiring abuses in the H-1B visa program. “We are going to defend our workers, protect our jobs
and finally put America first,” Trump declared. The White House says the H-1B visa program undercuts U.S. workers by bringing in large numbers of cheaper, foreign workers, driving down wages. Much like some prior orders, Trump’s executive action Tuesday essentially requests detailed reports rather than making decisive changes. In this case, the reports are about granting visas for highly skilled foreign workers and ensuring that government purchasing programs buy Americanmade goods as required by law. The new order directs U.S. agencies to propose rules to prevent immigration fraud and abuse in the program and to offer
changes so that H-1B visas are awarded to the most-skilled or highest-paid applicants. The number of requests for H-1B visas declined this year by about 15 percent, or roughly 37,000 applications, but the total was still nearly 200,000, far more than the 85,000 visa limit. The tech industry has argued that the H-1B program is needed because companies can’t always find enough American workers with the skills they need. Critics say the program has been hijacked by staffing companies that use the visas to recruit foreigners who will work for less than Americans, and then sell their services to corporations.
New York City may require Uber to change how it handles driver tips. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission is weighing a proposal that would require all for-hire drivers to offer riders the option to tip using the same method of payment they used for the ride, The New York Times reported. In Uber’s case, that would mean adding a tipping option on its mobile app. Uber drivers have pushed the company to add an electronic tipping option, something it has declined to do thus far. Uber’s chief rival, Lyft, has offered the option to tip drivers in its app since it was founded in 2012. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Scientists find ‘unicorn of mollusks’
After hundreds of years of just shell fragments and dead specimens, scientists have finally found live specimens of the giant shipworm in the Philippines, according to a study published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The shipworm, which can reach 3 feet long, spends its life in a shell, submerged head-first in mud. The ”unicorn of mollusks,” as biologists call it, was found after a researcher caught wind of a Philippine TV segment about strange shellfish in a lagoon. (TWP)

Despite bold words, ‘armada’ isn’t near Korea MILITARY As tensions mounted on the Korean Peninsula, Adm. Harry Harris made a dramatic announcement: A U.S. aircraft carrier had been ordered to sail north from Singapore on April 8 toward the western Pacific. Asked about the deployment in an interview with Fox Business Network that aired April 12, President Trump said: “We are sending an armada, very powerful.” But pictures posted by the U.S. Navy suggest that’s not quite the case — at least not yet. A photograph released by the Navy showed the aircraft carrier sailing through the calm waters of Sunda Strait between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java on Saturday. By later in the day, it was in the Indian Ocean, according to Navy photographs. Also Saturday, when North Korea held a military parade to mark the birthday of the nation’s founder, Kim Il Sung, the U.S. Navy put the Carl Vinson and its escort of two guided-missile destroyers and a cruiser more than 3,000 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula. Instead of steaming toward the Korea Peninsula, the strike group was headed in the opposite direction to take part in “scheduled exercises with Australian forces in the Indian Ocean,” according to Defense News. Neither the Pacific Command nor the Pacific Fleet responded to requests for comment. SIMON DENYER AND EMILY RAUHALA (TWP)

There are five scheduled executions remaining before Arkansas’ supply of the lethal drug midazolam expires at the end of April. (AP)

Bulent Tezcan, deputy chairman of the Republican People’s Party, said it filed a formal request for the referendum’s annulment due to voting irregularities. The developments came after President Trump called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday to congratulate him on the referendum, which changes the government from a parliamentary to a presidential one.

All three victims in Tuesday’s killings were white. Police Chief Jerry Dyer said that they were shot minutes apart in close proximity in areas around downtown. Muhammad was arrested soon after the shooting. He was already wanted in a separate killing from last week, in which a Motel 6 security guard in Fresno was gunned down. (AP)

Facebook’s dark side
TECHNOLOGY The massive growth of livestreaming everything from Little League games to a giraffe’s birth has developed a sinister edge as murderers, rapists and terrorists have found ways to broadcast video that tech companies such as Facebook are struggling to contain. Among the most shocking incidents yet came on Easter Sunday, when a man armed with a smartphone and handgun took video of himself fatally shooting a bystander on a Cleveland street. The alleged killer, Steve Stephens, posted the video on his Facebook page, then took to the Facebook Live streaming service to confess his actions — in real time. A nationwide manhunt followed. Stephens fatally shot himself Tuesday after a brief pursuit by Pennsylvania State Police in Erie County. Facebook disabled Stephens’ profile page more than two hours after the initial posting, according to the company, but not before the video of the shooting spread across the social network and to other social media, including YouTube and Instagram. It has been viewed more than 150,000 times. On Monday, Facebook said it was investigating why it took so long to receive reports of the video and was reviewing its procedures. Live video of violent incidents, including suicides, Islamic State beheadings and torture, have gone viral, with some reaching millions of people. This summer, Facebook faced criticism after a livestream of a disabled young man being tied up, gagged and
Since Facebook launched livestreaming, first with celebrities in late 2015 and then to the general public, there have been so many live suicides broadcast that the company decided to create a set of tools for users to flag them and alert law enforcement. When users flag such content, it is then sent to a global team of professionals within 24 hours. But critics say that within that span of time, inappropriate videos can be viewed millions of times. (TWP)
slashed with a knife stayed up for 30 minutes. Last month, two Chicago teenage boys livestreamed themselves gang-raping a teen girl. “Bound up with doing all of these terrible things is the possibility of showing thousands, possibly millions, of people that you’re doing it,” said Mary Anne Franks, a University of Miami law professor. She expressed doubt that Facebook could adequately monitor live videos. “When it comes to Facebook Live as a product specifically, I don’t think it’s a solvable problem.” After Facebook launched live
video streaming to the public last year, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said he wanted a product that would support all the “personal and emotional and raw and visceral” ways that people communicate. The company has encouraged users to “go live” in casual settings, while waiting for baggage at the airport, for example, or eating at a food truck. But questions are swirling around whether Facebook has done enough to contain the video service’s dark side. “This is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook,” company
Grand Canyon officials continue search for woman, 62, and 14-year-old boy who fell into creek Saturday
spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in a statement. “We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook, and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety.” While Facebook’s policies permit some graphic content to be posted — for example, the broadcasting of police brutality at a protest would generally be allowed — the company prohibits users from posting images or videos “for sadistic pleasure or to celebrate or glorify violence.” Facebook’s reluctance to play a greater gatekeeper role has drawn the ire of critics, who say that the rush to profit off viral content and video is leading to dangerous societal outcomes. At a Silicon Valley conference Tuesday, Zuckerberg briefly addressed the Cleveland case, saying Facebook has “a lot of work to do” and “we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this.” In an interview last month, Facebook Live product director Daniel Danker acknowledged there were obstacles. “It’s particularly challenging of course with Live, because there’s no time to react,” he said. “It’s happening as you see it.” ELIZABETH DWOSKIN AND CRAIG TIMBERG (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Live-streaming killers and suicides plague the platform’s ‘visceral’ real-time video feature
Facebook killer takes own life as police close in ERIE, PA. The man suspected of fatally shooting a 74-year-old, randomly selected target and posting a video of the killing on Facebook committed suicide as police were closing in on him Tuesday, authorities said. Steve Stephens — the subject of a nationwide manhunt after Sunday’s slaying in Cleveland — was spotted Tuesday at a McDonald’s in Erie County. A restaurant manager told The New York Times that drivethrough employees recognized Stephens, 37, phoned police and tried to delay him by holding up his french fries. “He just took his nuggets and said, ‘I have to go,’ ” the manager said. Pennsylvania State Police said they chased him from the McDonald’s for about 2 miles, finally ramming his car. “As the vehicle was spinning out of control … Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head,” police said in a statement. Police said it wasn’t clear whether Stephens had help while on the run or where he had been. Police would not speculate on what triggered the killing, but in the video and other footage, Stephens talked about having trouble with his girlfriend and losing everything he had to gambling. He said he “snapped.” “This started with one tragedy and ended with another person taking their own life,” said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. “We have so many questions.” (AP/TWP)

U.K. Delivering the latest jolt in Britain’s year of political shocks, Prime Minister Theresa May called Tuesday for a snap general election June 8, seeking to strengthen her hand in European Union exit talks and tighten her grip on the Conservative Party. With the Labour opposition weakened, May’s gamble will probably pay off with an enhanced Conservative majority in Parliament — but it’s unlikely
to unite a country deeply split over the decision to quit the EU. Since taking office after her predecessor David Cameron resigned in the wake of Britain’s June 23, 2016, vote to leave the EU, May had ruled out going to the polls before the next scheduled election in 2020. But on Tuesday, she said she had “reluctantly” changed her mind because political divisions “risk our ability to make a success of Brexit. “We need a general election and

the detailed talks begin.” May said she would put her election call to the House of Commons today. Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, welcomed May’s announcement, making it likely she will get lawmakers’ backing. May’s governing Conservatives currently have a slight majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons. If May emerges strengthened from the election, it would make it easier for her to ignore opposition calls for a softer EU exit and to face down hard-liners within her own party who want a nocompromise “hard Brexit” that many economists fear could be devastating.

Newseum showcases 75 years of national award-winning photography from the Pictures of the Year International contest, and the National Geographic Museum demonstrates how photographs can change our perceptions, even of predators—in this case, sharks. John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was the youngest, and arguably, one of the most popular presidents in history. In fact, Kennedy’s 70 percent average approval rating is the highest of any president in Gallup’s history of measuring job approval. Tragically, only roughly 1,000 days into his presidency, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, making him also the youngest president to die. While his time in office was not long, his impact and popularity have endured. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth (May 29, 1917), The Smithsonian American Art Museum and Newseum plan to devote exhibit space to the life and legacy of President Kennedy.

The estate also features 25 acres of formal gardens and natural woodlands. Born in 1887 in Springfield, Illinois, Post was the only child of Ella Merriweather and Charles William Post, who founded the Post cereal empire. Marjorie became one of America’s most successful businesswomen, taking over the family’s $20 million cereal company at just 27.

A New Perspective With the advent of photography came an entirely new perspective of history, time and oneself. A single photograph has the power to take us to places we’ve never been, stir emotions we didn’t know we had
and show us realities that need repairs. Three Washington-area museums are highlighting that power with photographic exhibits this spring. The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s exhibit, “Down These Mean Streets: Community and Place in Urban Photograph,” will open May 12 on the first floor of the museum, at 8th and F Streets, NW. The exhibit explores the work of 10 photographers who were driven to document and reflect on the state of American cities during the 1950s.
The photographers developed their fascination after populations shifted from the city to the suburbs following World War II. This shift led to newly built highways cutting through thriving neighborhoods, leaving isolated pockets within major urban centers. As neighborhoods started to decline in the 1950s, the photographers found ways to call attention to changing cities and their residents. The Smithsonian American Art Museum, located at 8th and F Streets, NW, is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., except Christmas Day. Admission is free. For more information, call (202) 633-7970 or visit www.americanart.si.edu. Long villainized as top-of-the-foodchain killers, sharks have been hunted for hundreds of years. Today, more than 100 million sharks are killed every year, primarily for their fins. Award-winning National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry has gone to extraordinary lengths to show us why we should not only protect sharks, but respect and appreciate them as integral species within our ecosystem. From Memorial Day through October, the National Geographic Museum will present some of Brian’s incredible body of work showcasing the impressive fish in an immersive exhibition called “Sharks.” The exhibition will include large-scale images, videos, artifacts, models, and interactive experiences—all highlighting Skerry’s passion, skill, and technique. The National Geographic Museum, located at 1145 17th Street, NW, is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. General admission is $15. Admission for magazine subscribers, students, seniors and military is $12. Children under 5 and annual pass members are free.

On September 29, the Newseum will bring back one of its most popular exhibits, “Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe.” This stunning photo exhibit showcases more than 70 intimate and iconic images of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and their children, Caroline and John, taken by Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe. Lowe’s photographs of the Kennedys helped create the legend of the Kennedy presidency that came to be known as “Camelot.” His extraordinary access to Kennedy’s private and public life allowed him to capture events others could not.

After losing Game 3 in OT, Braden Holtby and the Caps enter tonight’s game in Toronto down 2-1.
NATHAN DENETTE (AP)
What went so wrong
THOMAS BOSWELL | THE WASHINGTON POST
Playoff crossroads: Series deficit tests Capitals’ character The Capitals face a classic moment that defines the difference between how psychologically strong championship-winning teams think about tense playoff moments and how choking-dog teams see the same situations. Champions see every glass as half-full, even the ones that are three-quarters empty, and rip the throats out of lesser teams in crucial games. Choking dogs see omens of doom, yet refuse to admit that they are being outplayed by a weaker foe until they are on the brink of elimination. Thus, they turn what could still be a manageable situation into a season-crushing disaster. The Caps need to win in Toronto tonight (7, CSN, NBCSN) to tie their series at
2-2, reclaim home-ice advantage and put the eighth-seeded Maple Leafs back in a spot almost as tough as they were before Game 1. The Leafs would face a best-of-three series against the NHL’s best regular-season team with two games in Washington. All year the Caps have yammered about how they want to win a Stanley Cup, how they are good enough to win it, how this is the best team they’ve ever had and that, without a doubt, they have the team character, depth and talent to grab that Cup. So, prove it. Beat a No. 8 seed in a big game. Stop being outplayed by a baby-faced Toronto bunch that lost more games than it won in the regular season (40-27-15). Put your stars, who got extra rest all season, on the ice for major playing time. Live with the result.
A team worthy of a Stanley Cup celebration would look at what’s happening in the Western Conference right now and say, “What a break! This really is our year!!” The top two seeds in the West, the Blackhawks and the Wild, trail three games to none in their first-round series. Maybe one of ’em will win four in a row. But they’re both probably already dead. That means the three-Cupsin-seven-years Blackhawks, the only team that started the playoffs with better Vegas odds than the Caps to win the Cup, may be knocked out by eighthseeded Nashville. You can’t get much luckier than that. The Wild may be the most talented team in the other conference.
“This would be the biggest failure in, maybe, NHL history. CSN ANALYST ALAN MAY, talking Tuesday on 106.7 The Fan about the Capitals potentially losing in the first round to Toronto. May said Alex Ovechkin should be on the ice more after he played 15:08 in a Game 3 loss. Washington trails 2-1.
Pirates All-Star outfielder Starling Marte suspended 80 games after positive PED test
Minnesota has the second-best NHL goal differential behind only the Caps. Now look at the Caps’ own conference. The best teams in the NHL by wins in regulation or overtime are the Caps and Columbus. The Blue Jackets were also third in the NHL in points. Guess which team entered Tuesday night’s game also trailing three games to none: Columbus. So, another of the Caps’ primary Cup foes is probably dead. What luck! The Caps can curse the puck luck of playing three straight overtime games and losing two — including Game 3, when they were less than three seconds away from killing a penalty when Toronto scored to end the game. But that’s how losers think. To be blunt, it’s how the Capitals have thought too often in their postseason disasters through the past 34 years. Or they can look at the other side of the truth. They are one clutch road win away from being in a palatable situation. That ought to inspire them entering Game 4 on the road. Of course, for decades, such challenges have brought out the worst in the Caps.
The Capitals were up 2-0 on the Maple Leafs early in Game 3 before the wheels fell off in a 4-3 overtime loss. Here are three reasons for Washington’s collapse that could still haunt the team tonight. (TWP)
3 Alzner’s absence Blue-liner Karl Alzner (upperbody injury) missed his first game in seven years Monday and is ruled out for tonight. He’s key to a penalty-kill unit that gave up the winning goal.
2 Weak power play The Caps’ power play had one goal in Game 1 and two in Game 2 but failed to score with five-on-three and fiveon-four advantages in the second period Monday.
1 Leafs’ top line After going scoreless in the first two games, Toronto’s first line (Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Zach Hyman) combined for four points in Game 3.

WIZARDS VS. HAWKS | GAME 2: 7 TONIGHT, CSN
NBA PLAYOFFS Across the floor in front of him, Otto Porter Jr. saw Hawks rookie Taurean Prince as his opponent in the Wizards’ playoff opener. Instead of solely trying to teach Prince a lesson, Porter saw an opportunity to affect the entire game. In the first quarter Sunday, Porter, 23, played with the moxie and force of a playoff veteran: He snatched rebounds, recovered a
deflected pass and dove on the court for loose balls. He finished the day with 10 points, one made 3-pointer and nine rebounds. After Washington’s 114-107 win, the Hawks talked about their opponent’s physicality. Although Hawks forward Paul Millsap suggested the Wizards could moonlight as mixed martial artists, Porter viewed Game 1 as a blueprint for Washington. “ I t ’s t h e pl ayo f fs! ” h e

concerned with that objective than with his individual matchup. In Prince’s playoff debut, he scored 10 of his 14 points in the second half. On Monday, Porter declared: “We’re going to pay
more attention to him.” Although Porter was bothered by a bad back near the end of the regular season, on Monday he said he felt good. He had been on track to start every game of the season before sitting out April 8 and 10 because of back spasms. He said that pain flared up because of his chronic hip issues, but he also believed that the end-of-season rest helped. The two days off between playoff games should also benefit Porter because he knows the Hawks’ counterpunch will come. “It’s a long series,” Porter said. “They’re going to make adjustments.” CANDACE BUCKNER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Outfielder, 19, could be next in line to join Nats from Class A Potomac
Cavs’ defense still isn’t at level of a champion NBA PLAYOFFS Through two games of what should be a long playoff run, it would be easy to look at the Cavaliers and think all is right in their world. The defending champs are up 2-0 against the Pacers after a 117-111 home win Monday and should move into the second round without a great deal of difficulty. But the second round isn’t the goal for LeBron James and the Cavaliers. That’s not why they have the league’s highest payroll. If the Cavs are going to reach their true goal — repeating as champions — they’re going to have to start playing defense. So far, there’s no reason to think the team that spent the final two months of the season assuring everyone it would flip a switch and begin playing defense once the playoffs began has that capability, particularly at the level to win another title. The Pacers, a middling offensive team during the regular season (15th in offensive rating), have shot at or over 50 percent while easily eclipsing 100 points in both Games 1 and 2. Their eir star, Paul George is scoring overr 30 per game and shooting 49 percent from the field. ESPN reported that only two teams since 1980 have finished hed outside the top 10 in defensive ive efficiency and won a title — the 1995 Rockets (12th) and the 2001 Lakers (21st). Cleveland d was 22nd in defensive efficiency ncy this season — 29th since the AllStar break. TIM BONTEMPS (TWP))
NATIONALS In each of the past two years, a player with the Class A Potomac Nationals has made it to the majors. Wilmer Difo did it in 2015. Koda Glover did it last season. Could Victor Robles be next?

Victor Robles missed time with a minor leg injury but is hitting .357 this season.
Saturday and Sunday with the minor injury, Robles was hitting .357 with a 1.062 OPS in seven games this season. He was prepared to play Monday, when two Nationals executives traveled to Woodbridge, Va., to check on
him, but the game was rained out. Robles, 19, played 41 games with High-A Potomac last year and was hit by a pitch that broke his hand. He never seemed to recover his rhythm, finishing with a .262 average and .741 OPS. His

Robles readying for big leagues career numbers in the minors are .308 and .866. Perhaps it’s too early to suggest Robles is ready for the majors. Difo was 23 during his jump year. Glover was, too. Still, Robles is on a path that might earn him a promotion soon. Robles is developing a reputation for playing a little too hard, unafraid of running into walls. The Nationals prefer that to the alternative. His energy makes Potomac manager Tripp Keister particularly enthusiastic about the young center fielder. “He wants constant enrichment,” Keister said. “He wants to learn. He wants to be great.” CHELSEA JANES (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Settling the unsettled Those running Prince’s estate since his death last year have taken steps to preserve his legacy and keep the cash coming in. Here’s a brief look at where things stand. STEVE KARNOWSKI (AP)
Kendrick Lamar gives a ‘DAMN.’ The rapper’s latest offers a clear vision during a chaotic time MUSIC REVIEW In this brave new world of alterna-facts and neo-nuclear heebie-jeebies, let us give thanks for Kendrick Lamar, a rapper brave enough to mop up America’s most pungent funk and blast it back in verbal laser light. On his extrasensory new album, “DAMN.,” released last week, he outlines the ills of the nation — “It’s murder on my street, your street, back streets, Wall Street, corporate offices, banks, employees and bosses with homicidal thoughts” — then points his finger at a really bad dude: “Donald Trump is in office.” He’s spraying red-hot invective, but his voice is a minty-cool spritz. As the
world grows more disordered, his vision clears. And who better to trust than a California dreamer who can see beyond the madness of the moment while his Reeboks are still planted in it? For all of the introspection and self-doubt that makes Lamar’s body of work feel so exceptional, “DAMN.” radiates certitude from the track list outward. He’s still expressing the complexity of his humanity — “Watch my soul speak,” he instructs during the staccato chestpuffs of “HUMBLE.” — but, this time, with machinelike mettle. The music surrounding his voice feels uncluttered, giving Lamar the opportunity to clear a few things up, including the fact that his politics were never a pose. “Last LP, I tried to lift the black artists,” he raps during the climax of “ELEMENT.,” citing
“ To P i mp a B u t t e r f l y, ” his 2015 opus that became the unofficial soundtrack of the Black Lives Matter movement, “but it’s a difference between black artists and wack artists.” Damn. As a lyricist, Lamar’s gift remains extraordinary. You know it, I know it and he knows it, too. “I don’t love people enough to put my faith in men,” he confesses on “PRIDE.,” a song addressing morality, mortality, God and craft. “I put my faith in these lyrics.” To believe in his words is to be dazzled by them. So yeah, sure, Kendrick is the GOAT, blah-blah-blah. But the perpetual conversation about whether this man is the Greatest Rapper Who Ever Walked God’s
KEVIN WINTER (GETTY IMAGES)
Green Earth only threatens to monopolize our attention and limit our listening. And there’s always more to listen for in Lamar’s music, especially in his voice, which often expresses his humanity as vividly as his verses do. He deploys different tones across “DAMN.,” but Lamar’s default timbre remains that raspy half-shout, where his throat sounds dry and his mouth sounds wet. You can hear wisdom and desire in that voice, regardless of the words he’s forming. He’s hoarse from rebuking the universe, but still salivating, eager to tell you more. Lamar knows his instrument, because he knows his body, because he knows himself. The closer we listen to that soul speak, the better we can each understand our own.
Universal Music Group has the licensing rights to Prince’s vault of unreleased music and his independently recorded albums. His music is also on streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music. The value of those deals has not been disclosed.
Paisley Park Close to 100,000 people have visited Paisley Park, Prince’s home and studio complex, since it opened for public tours in October. Most of the money is going toward preserving the building and protecting its contents.
The estate The six siblings of Prince, who left no will when he died, will get equal shares of his estate, which court filings suggest is worth $200 million. More than 45 people filed claims purporting to be his wife, children, siblings or other relatives, all of which have been rejected.

The number of global subscribers Netflix is projected to reach by this upcoming weekend, a testament to how much the service has changed the entertainment landscape since its debut a decade ago. Netflix made the prediction Monday with the release of its first-quarter earnings. The service added nearly 5 million subscribers during the first three months of the year. For all its success, Netflix still has a ways to go before it catches up with HBO, which has 134 million subscribers worldwide. (AP) Kevin Spacey to host this year’s Tony Awards on June 11

trending “The UK used to be a really stable monarchy, but they got a taste for democracy with ‘X-Factor’ and everything just went to hell.” @BRODERICK, joking about British Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision
to call for an early election June 8, because she is seeking a stronger mandate to carry out Brexit. May’s announcement broke her vow not to hold an election before 2020, and inspired a lot of jokes on social media. @GrantTucker pointed out that it probably means President Trump’s state visit will be canceled, to which @alexhern replied, “This is the most elaborate way of cancelling plans the world has ever seen.”

“ ‘Welcome to your tape’ is becoming a meme when it’s about a girl who was so empty inside she had tell why she killed herself via tapes.” @MARIEFLOWS, critiquing the use

ARIES (March 21-April 19) It may be time for you to gather a crack team and put together ideas that can do all of you some good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Others want to know what makes you tick with regard to a certain endeavor. But you don’t want to give away all of your secrets. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have to work long hours just to make sure that everything gets done on time and within a strict budget. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may feel further away from family members than you have in a while. This is the result of a personal dilemma that requires attention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may have trouble getting the job done, as someone occupies your thoughts in ways that are not work-related.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Why not indulge in something thrilling, but not dangerous to you or others? A little fun is just what you need. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The questions you are asked may not yield direct answers, but you’ll engage in a thought process that does you good. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Yes, what you’re after is available and within reach, but you are not really as motivated as you thought you would be, are you?

“I will not miss that Snoopy T-shirt,” La La said in a statement.
In a new feature in Rolling Stone, Harry Styles defends his main fan base: “Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music — short for popular, right? — have worse musical taste than a 30-yearold hipster guy? That’s not up to you to say. … Young girls like The Beatles. You gonna tell me they’re not serious? How can you say young girls don’t get it? They’re our future.”
Kid Rock didn’t even make a Facebook post Kid Rock “quietly” got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Audrey Berry, a source confirmed to the New York Post. Fans reportedly saw Berry recently with a diamond ring on her left ring finger. The two have been dating since the late 2000s. Kid Rock was previously married to Pamela Anderson from August 2006 to February 2007. (EXPRESS)

Famous guy is the worst, says report New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and wife La La have separated, TMZ reported. One reason for the split, which the gossip site says has been building for months: A dancer at a New York strip club claims to be 6½ months pregnant with Anthony’s child, per multiple TMZ sources, and she expects the NBA star to help with expenses. Anthony and La La have been married since 2010 and have a 10-year-old son. The TMZ story also contends that this Knicks season “has been extremely stressful on the marriage for several months.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)
