Easter Bunny Was Hiding Eggs Where They Couldn’t Be Found Members of the Northampton, Mass., Fire Department hopped into action when they heard the Easter Bunny was trapped and needed help. Four members of the department on Sunday rushed to help after getting a call from a woman who said the bunny belonging to the little girl she was baby-sitting escaped and hid under the porch. The Republican of Springfield reports that firefighter Jesse Rosnick had to crawl through the dirt to grab the girl’s furry friend. (AP) THOUSAND-DOLLAR MENU

TV’s Future in Court’s Hands Justices’ decision on Aereo could reshape how we watch shows Washington An obscure Internet startup is roiling the television industry with an old-school technology: the antenna. The startup, Aereo, uses thousands of tiny antennas to capture broadcast television programs, then converts the shows into online video streams for subscribers in 11 cities. What Aereo doesn’t do is pay licensing fees to the broadcast networks that produce the programs. And that has put Aereo at the center of a ﬁerce debate over the reach of copyright laws, the accessibility of public airwaves and the future of TV. Today, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a civil case ﬁled against the 2-year-old private ﬁrm by ABC, CBS, NBC and other major broadcasters alleging that Aereo is no different from cable and satellite ﬁrms that are required to pay hefty fees to rebroadcast their shows. “Quite simply, Aereo takes copyrighted material, proﬁts from it and does so without compensating copyright holders,” said Gordon Smith, president of the National Association of Broadcasters. But Aereo argues that it is enti-
Aereo’s Argument When a cable company rebroadcasts an ABC show, for example, it is offering a “public” performance and must pay the network retransmission fees. But because licensing payments are not required for private performances, people without cable can use antennas to capture over-the-air TV programs for their viewing. Aereo argues that it is no more than an antenna rental service. Its customers pick the shows they want to watch and Aereo assigns them an antenna and positions it to capture the show from local airwaves. That makes Aereo merely a mediator of “private” performances, the company argues, because each antenna rebroadcasts to just one subscriber.
Do We Get It Here?
Aereo operates in New York, Boston and Baltimore, among other locations. Plans for the D.C. area were held up last fall by problems negotiating space for its local “farm” of antennas and servers. The company hopes to launch in the District later this year and eventually expand nationwide. But it is unlikely to survive if it doesn’t win the case. (T WP)
tled to draw freely from programs transmitted on public airwaves. If successful, the argument has the potential to blow apart the expensive channel bundles that have been forced on American households and dramatically change the way people watch programs. Live sports and other popular shows that are available only on broadcast TV or cable television could be accessed
more conveniently and cheaply over the Internet. That could lead many consumers to cut the cable cord in favor of a much cheaper alternative: a broadband Internet connection and subscriptions to Aereo, Netﬂix and Hulu. The average price of basic cable is nearly $100 a month. Broadband Internet plus subscriptions to Aereo and Netﬂix is less than $60. (Aereo’s service starts

at $8 a month for about two dozen local over-the-air stations.) District residents Katrin Verclas and Bob Boorstin are anxious for a way to cut their cable subscription, but they’ve kept it for baseball games and other programs. They cringe at the thought of paying $130 a month for cable so Boorstin won’t miss Nationals games. With Aereo, baseball site MLB.TV, and maybe another app, they would gladly use the Internet for all their video news and entertainment. “I’d rather spend money on faster Internet,” Verclas said, “than hundreds of channels we never watch.” CECILIA KANG AND ROBERT BARNES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A 16-year-old runaway scrambled over an airport fence in San Jose, Calif., crossed a tarmac and climbed into a jetliner’s wheel well, then ﬂew for ﬁve freezing hours to Hawaii — a misadventure that stirred concern about possible weak spots in the security system that protects the nation’s airline ﬂeet. The boy, who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., hopped out of the wheel well of a Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday. Authorities found him wandering around the airport grounds with no identification. He was questioned by the FBI and taken to a hospital, where he was found to be unharmed. FBI spokesman Tom Simon said the teen did not remember the ﬂight from San Jose. It was not immediately clear how the boy stayed alive in the unpressurized space. Wheel-well

Officersâ€™ New Orders: You Must Leave the Army Fort Bragg, N.C. After the 9/11 attacks, tens of thousands of young men and women joined the military, heading for the rugged mountains of Afghanistan and dusty deserts of Iraq. Many of them now are ofďŹ cers in the Army with multiple combat deployments under their belts. But as the wars wind down and Pentagon budgets shrink, a lot of them are being told they have to leave. Captains who battled insurgents and saw roadside bombs kill their comrades are now nervously waiting as their fates rest in the hands of evaluation boards that may spend only a few minutes reading through service records before making decisions that could end careers. Army commanders will have to force as many as 3,000 ofďŹ cers to leave by the end of October 2015. Of

The Problem During the peak war years, the Army grew to about 570,000. Already down to about 522,000, it must shrink to 490,000 by October 2015, and then to 450,000 two years later.

Mokpo, South Korea South Korean President Park Geun-hye castigated the captain and some crew members of a sunken ferry on Monday, saying their actions in abandoning a vessel with hundreds of passengers still aboard were “tantamount to murder.” Park’s comments came in the face of criticism about her government’s response to the disaster amid a growing sense of fury in South Korea about alleged criminal incompetence aboard the ferry Sewol.
U.S. Probing a Potential Chlorine Attack in Syria
Buddhist monks cremated the remains of Sherpa guides who were buried in the deadliest avalanche to hit Mount Everest, a disaster that has prompted calls for a climbing boycott by Nepal’s ethnic Sherpa community. Nepal’s government said late Monday it would consider the Sherpa’s demands for more insurance money, more ﬁnancial aid for the families of the victims, the formation of a relief fund and regulations that would ensure climbers’ rights. A committee formed with guides, rescuers and others will make its recommendations today, said Maddhu Sudan Burlakoti, head of the mountaineering department. A total Sherpa boycott could critically disrupt the Everest climbing season, which is key to the livelihood of thousands of Nepali guides and porters. Everest climbers have long relied on Sherpas for every-

could complicate the already emotional proceedings. During a meeting with advisers, Park criticized the captain for leaving a 25-year-old third mate — “an
entry-level worker” — in charge of navigating the narrow waterway where the ferry ran into trouble, according to a transcript from the presidential ofﬁce. Park also noted that a maritime operator on shore repeatedly urged the Sewol to evacuate its passengers — something the Sewol crew members said was impossible because the vessel had already tilted drastically. “Right after the accident, the captain didn’t comply with orders for evacuation from [the maritime operator] and told the passengers to stay where they are,” Park said. “But he then abandoned them and escaped ﬁrst. This is unthinkable legally and morally.” CHICO HARL AN ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

The assault appeared to be a signiﬁcant escalation in the U.S. and Yemeni campaign against al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the terror group’s powerful branch in the southern Arabian nation.

D.C. to Reissue Licenses All District IDs must be replaced to comply with a federal law Washington There’s no good way to break it to you, D.C. license holders. You’re going to have to make a trip to the DMV, all 540,000 of you. Starting May 1, the District will start issuing REAL ID licenses that conform to stringent federal regulations, the Department of Motor Vehicles announced last week. Any driver’s license issued before that date will need to be replaced by Oct. 1, 2014 to enter

DMV changed the design and security features of its licenses in November in anticipation of the REAL ID rollout, licenses issued since then do not have the REAL ID credential, according to Department of Motor Vehicles Director Lucinda Babers.

So even if you have one of the updated licenses, which feature a blooming cherry blossom tree, you will still need to take a trip to the DMV to update it. The only visual difference between the two will be a star in the upper right corner. To avoid a worse-than-usual crush at service centers, the agency will notify residents in writing when they need to present identifying documents to revalidate their identity, social security number and address. The re-opening of Georgetown’s DMV on April 29 should also help. Residents who wait for notiﬁcation will not be charged a fee to convert their licenses.

Are Air Bags the New Stereo for Thieves? Fairfax police report the safety devices stolen from 50 cars Fairfax County, Va. Enterprising thieves have turned laundry detergent into “liquid gold.” They’ve stripped copper from churches. Now, add a new item to the list you’d never thought they would target: air bags.
Fairfax County police report the safety devices have been stolen from more than 50 cars this year. Arlington police said a couple of weeks ago air bags were stolen from multiple cars in the Fairlington, Va., area. Ditto in Maryland’s Howard County in March and Montgomery County last year. Police and experts say there is a healthy black market for the items. Air bags retail for about $1,000, but stolen ones only cost $50 to $200,
according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The group reports about 50,000 air bags are stolen across the country each year, totaling $50 million. Crooked repair shops install stolen air bags and then pocket the difference between the lower black market price and the market rate they charge the insurance company. “It’s become so brazen and bold they are selling these air bags on eBay and Craigslist,” said AAA Mid-
Atlantic spokesman John Townsend. “When a shop is installing an air bag that’s stolen, it could be compromised. That’s a potential safety risk — they may not deploy as they are supposed to.” If car owners are having an air bag installed, Townsend suggested they ask a repair shop to see the box the safety device came in or a receipt from the manufacturer. The most recent air bag thefts in Fairfax County targeted seven vehi-
cles in the Fairfax City area during the overnight hours of April 4 and 5, police said. Nine vehicles parked in the Annandale area were also hit overnight on April 9 and 10. Some of the cars have been unlocked, but in the majority of cases thieves are smashing out the rear window of a locked vehicle, police said. The suspects open the hood, disconnect the battery and remove the air bag. JUSTIN JOUVENAL (THE WASHINGTON POST)
McAuliffe Touts Achievements of His First 100 Days Richmond Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe marked his 100th day in office Monday by trumpeting a range of accomplishments and vowing to redouble his efforts to push for his still-elusive goal of Medicaid expansion. In a speech at the Library of Virginia and in a glossy 32-page booklet issued for the occasion, McAuliffe recapped work to strengthen ethics in government, prioritize transportation spending and reform school testing, among others. Republicans noted that some
of the biggest initiatives McAuliffe took credit for originated with legislation proposed by GOP legislators. “The Governor also attempted today to take credit for several signiﬁcant initiatives championed by House Republicans,” Matthew Moran, spokesman for House McAuliffe Speaker William Howell, said in a written statement. McAuliffe vowed in his speech not to give up on plans to expand

Medicaid to as many as 400,000 Virginians. McAuliffe and a slim majority of the Senate support expansion, saying that it would help needy citizens and create 30,000 new jobs. The Republican-dominated House is opposed, saying that the federal government cannot afford to make good on its promise under the federal health-care law to pick up most of the $2 billion-a-year tab. The impasse has held up passage of the state budget and could lead to a shutdown of the state government if it is not resolved by July 1. LAURA VOZZELLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

When the U.S. Capitol dome was built in the 1860s, cast iron was the high-tech building material of its day, easier to erect than stone, more fireproof than wood. But if the people’s business never stops below, neither do the wind and rain above — and now, after 150 years of duty as Washington’s symbol of democracy, the dome is getting an overdue, $60 million makeover. The building will be closed to the public until April 28 to allow preparatory work, but will be open for the entire two-year process.

A few things have to occur before the repair begins. The Rotunda will be closed while interior work is done to protect visitors and art from debris that could be shaken loose. After that, intense exterior work will start.
Staging Area The staging area will be an acre-size zone at the northwest corner of the grounds. From there, a series of hoists and stairs will ferry people and supplies onto the dome.
“Apotheosis of Washington” fresco
Surrounding the Outside Fifty-two miles of scaffolding is being erected around the 199-foot dome. The cupola’s curves can’t bear weight, so scaffolding will bridge those areas. Most work will be at night, with symmetrical lighting offering interesting photo ops.
Finding the Problems Many cracks are obvious — the largest is about 2 feet long — but even tiny ones can spread if not repaired. In an effort to find them, workers will examine the bare metal. When they see small cracks, they will use magnetic powder and magnets to reveal edges.
Repainting Uncoated cast iron begins to flash-rust within eight hours, so each section will be primed with a rust inhibitor immediately. After repairs are done, about 1,215 gallons of paint will be sprayed, rolled and brushed over the primer. A “Dome White” top-coat sealer should last 12 to 16 years.
Fixing Ornaments Repairing Cracks
More than 100 cast-iron pieces, such as grape clusters and acorns, have fallen off over the years, and many more have broken, cracked or rusted. They will be replaced or recast. Damaged area
The Civil War-era cast iron is less than half an inch thick but so dense that the dome weighs nearly 9 million pounds. Welding would crack the brittle metal even more, so a stitching technique will be used to repair cracks and attach Dutchman patches.
Replacing Some ornaments, as well as large, damaged areas of the dome, may need to be replaced by cutting out a chunk and attaching a new piece. That type of repair is called a Dutchman.
Recasting Missing ornaments will be recast at a foundry in Utah. New ornaments must match the old ones as closely as possible, so some molds may need to be made by hand. Recasting an ornament can take up to 12 weeks.

Protecting the Inside
The dome’s windows, 36 per level, are the original, greenlead glass placed during the Civil War, anchored in wooden frames. Broken windows will be removed, repaired or replaced.
A five-layered, doughnut-shaped netting made of rope and fabric will hang in the rotunda throughout the repairs to catch any falling debris. The “Apotheosis of Washington” fresco will be visible through the hole in the middle.
Stitching Cracks Metalworkers drill holes along the entire length of the crack, then insert steel pins threaded like screws. The pins overlap slightly and are coated with a sealant for a watertight fit.
Smoothing The Surface The pins’ heads are designed to break off uniformly. The remaining bits of shaft are then ground with a handheld wheel or file so the surface is smooth.
Locking the Edges Shallow beds are drilled across the metal surface and steel locks are inserted for a stronger seal. These pins have special threads to pull metal edges tight.

Sports Comparing Ages of NBA Teams
NAM Y. HUH (AP)
Wizards forward Nene, left, scored 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds Sunday in Washington’s Game 1 victory over the Chicago Bulls.
It’s a Big Man’s Game Now The Wizards are back to relying on their big men. Forget the highly drafted guards who are supposed to be the team’s core; they provide regular-season entertainment. The postseason belongs to the real men underneath, the gritty performers who throw elbows and sweat their way to loose balls. Washington’s frontcourt was the key to the Wizards’ first Game 1 victory in a playoff series since 1986. Their 102-93 beat down of the Chicago Bulls on Sunday shows the Wizards By Rick aren’t content just Snider making the playoffs for the first time in six years. Guards John Wall and Bradley Beal, supposedly the soul of the offense, converted only 7 of 25 shots Sunday. The Wizards’ offense went through the frontcourt. Forwards Nene and Trevor Ariza and center
Marcin Gortat combined for 57 points. The frontcourt starters have playoff experience with former teams, and Nene especially showed he was ready for the big stage with 24 points and eight rebounds. The 11-year veteran controlled the game and outdueled Chicago’s Joakim Noah. Nobody expected that, but Nene has always been Washington’s true leader. Wall was Washington’s ﬁrst overall pick in 2010 and he’s the franchise player for the long term, but the now belongs to Nene. That’s why the team was so patient during his six-week
rehab from a sprained knee. Before his injury, Washington was 60-61 with Nene and 8-34 without the Brazilian, who came to Washington in March 2012. The Wizards were able to go 12-9 down the stretch of the regular season without Nene, but they always knew his return was needed to make a playoff run. Nene played in four of the ﬁnal ﬁve games to get back up to speed for the playoffs, and his 14.3 points per game average in that stretch mirrored his season average (14.2). The Wizards can’t survive the down-and-dirty Bulls without the frontcourt grinding away. On Sunday,
The Wizards can’t survive the down-and-dirty Bulls without the frontcourt grinding away.
Nene took charge early and the backcourt mostly watched. Reserve Andre Miller pitched in with 10 big points, but Wall’s 16 points seemed to overstate his impact on the game. Wall and Beal missed their combined three 3-point attempts. Instead, it was Ariza taking advantage of his chances by hitting 3 of 5 from outside and scoring 18 points overall. Ariza has played for six different teams in his career, but his experience is valued by the Wizards. Chicago will surely refocus to counter Washington’s frontcourt, making it vital Wall and Beal recover. If Washington’s guards thrive in Game 2, Chicago won’t have a solution. If the Wizards’ backcourt fails, the big men must prove invincible again. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks
As the Wizards gradually shifted their roster this season — adding Al Harrington, Drew Gooden and Andre Miller, while shipping out Jan Vesely and rarely playing Otto Porter Jr. — there started to be some confusion about whether this should still be considered a “young” team. But are they young? Here’s a calculated average age (weighted by minutes played) of every NBA playoff team through one postseason contest. This only takes into account the minutes distributions in the opening games of the series over the weekend. It doesn’t account for injuries, or foul trouble. The ages are as of Feb. 1, which is what basketballreference.com provides. And there are slight rounding issues; every team that played four quarters isn’t credited with exactly 240 minutes. Still, in rough terms at least, here are the 16 playoff teams, from youngest to oldest: Houston Rockets Toronto Raptors Charlotte Bobcats Portland Trail Blazers Washington Wizards Indiana Pacers Oklahoma City Thunder L.A. Clippers Chicago Bulls Atlanta Hawks Memphis Grizzlies San Antonio Spurs Brooklyn Nets Miami Heat Dallas Mavericks

“The Star-Spangled Banner” played over Boylston Street in honor of an American winner of the Boston Marathon. One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keﬂezighi added Boston to a résumé that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the bombing victims on his bib. “At the end, I just kept thinking, ‘Boston Strong. Boston Strong,’ ” he said. “I was thinking ‘Give everything you have. If you get beat, that’s it.’ ” Kef lezighi completed t he
26.2 miles from Hopkinton to the ﬁnish on Boylston Street in Boston’s Back Bay on Monday in a personalbest 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He held off Kenya’s Wilson Chebet, who ﬁnished 11 seconds behind. Keﬂezighi went out early and built a big lead. But he was looking over his shoulder several times as Chebet closed the gap over the final two miles. After realizing he wouldn’t be caught, Keﬂezighi raised his sunglasses, began pumping his right ﬁst and made the sign of the cross. He broke into tears after crossing the ﬁnish line, then draped himself in the American ﬂag. No U.S. runner had won the race since Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach took the women’s title in 1985. The last American man to win was Greg Meyer in 1983. Meyer and Keﬂezighi embraced after the race. “I’m blessed to be an American and God bless America and God bless Boston for this special day,” Keﬂezighi said. PAT EATON-ROBB (AP)

Jeptoo finished in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. American Shalane Flanagan, who went to high school in nearby Marblehead, Mass., finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She gambled by setting the early pace, but fell back near the 21-mile mark. (AP)

In Show of Defiance, Thousands Run Race Under heavy security that included a battery of surveillance cameras and police ofﬁcers on rooftops, nearly 36,000 runners hit the streets Monday in the ﬁrst Boston Marathon since last year’s deadly bombing, sending a powerful message of resilience. “I showed up, I’m back, and I am going to ﬁnish what I didn’t ﬁnish last year,” said Mary Cunningham, 50, of St. Petersburg,
Fla., who was stopped a mile short of the ﬁnish line by the explosions on April 15, 2013. The two pressure-cooker bombs that went off near the end of the 26.2-mile course killed three people and wounded more than 260 in a hellish spectacle of torn limbs, smoke and broken glass. This year, police were deployed in force along the route, with helicopters circling above and bombsnifﬁng dogs checking trash cans. A total of 35,755 athletes were

At 2:49 p.m., the time the bombs went off, spectators observed a moment of silence at the finish line. It was followed by some of the loudest cheers of the day as people whooped, clapped and rang cowbells. (AP)

Mike Woodson had the Knicks on top of their division and in the second round of the playoffs, destinations that had become unreachable and practically unimaginable in New York. A year later, he was out of a job. Phil Jackson fired Woodson and the entire coaching staff on Monday, making his ﬁrst big move since becoming team president in March and saying in a statement
that “the time has come for change throughout the franchise.” The dismissal comes shortly after the Knicks completed a 37-45 season that began with their belief they were a serious contender. Instead, they started poorly, making Woodson’s job security practically a season-long distraction. A late surge wasn’t good enough for a postseason spot or another year for Woodson, who took over in 2012. It was a stunningly swift fall for Woodson, whose .580 winning

Anacostia’s Central Perk Strength and cardio equipment are free to use at a new outdoor ‘Fitness Zone’ gym
Curious kids have been trying out the squat press and other equipment.
JASON HORNICK PHOTOS (FOR EXPRESS)
Harvey and Karen Pitts took a tour of the new gym in their neighborhood Sunday morning. While Harvey, 44, tested out one of the situp benches, Karen, 43, pumped out a set of lat pulldowns. They explored the rest of the strength training equipment — which includes stations for chest presses, squats and pullups — and then examined a cluster of cardio machines. “This is perfect. You can tone up and do your stretches and walk on home,” Henry decreed as he adjusted to the swinging handles and gliding pedals of an elliptical. And you can’t beat the price: free. That’s because they were working out in Anacostia Park at the District’s ﬁrst Fitness Zone, which ofﬁcially opens with a ribbon-cutting at 11 a.m. today. The project is part of a nationwide push for outdoor exercise facilities by the Trust for Public Land, a San Franciscobased organization that promotes park usage. Since the program started in 2007, the trust has established nearly 40 Fitness Zones, mostly in Los Angeles and Miami. In 2012, the trust worked with the National Park Service to identify eight potential sites in the D.C. area. Anacostia Park was at the top of that list. Some outdated ﬁtness equipment was already sitting in the middle of a ﬁeld there, says Julie Kutruff of the National Park Service. The time was right to replace it with nicer stuff, she adds, especially since the ongoing development of the Anacostia
Anacostia resident Kathryn Payton lifts herself on the lat pull station at the new Fitness Zone in Anacostia Park.
Riverwalk Trail was making the park more accessible. “It’s another reason to get people to come here,” Kutruff says. And the more people visit the park, the more they’ll appreciate the nature that lives there, she says. The park service purchased the equipment for $25,000 but didn’t have funds to install it — until the Trust for Public Land secured a $30,000 donation from the consulting ﬁrm ICF International. Installation began on April 1. As soon as the security fencing came down on April 11, folks rushed in to try out the equipment, says the trust’s Kent Whitehead. He sees that as an indicator of the need for a Fitness Zone. “When you look at where gyms are located in the District, this neighborhood doesn’t have them,” he says.
It’s also a sign that the Trust for Public Land has ﬁgured out proper placement from its experience with previous Fitness Zones, Whitehead adds. One strategy that works: setting up the equipment around a play area (in this case, the pirate ship marooned at Anacostia Drive and Nicholson Street SE), so parents can use it while watching their kids. The combo makes sense, Kutruff
says. Adults have one fewer excuse for skipping a workout, and they can set a good example for children. Each of the 18 pieces of equipment has a sign explaining how to use it, so anyone can follow the Pitts family’s lead and just start exercising. Whitehead and Kutruff have also reached out to local trainers, encouraging them to bring clients to the park and host classes incor-
The Play Must Go On Typical playgrounds have swings, slides and monkey bars for kids. What do grown-ups get? Boring benches. That doesn’t seem fair, says D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation spokesman John Stokes. So as part of Play DC — an initiative to overhaul 40 of the city’s playgrounds — many of the spaces are being outfitted with adult exercise equipment. “We wanted to look at the life span of facilities, and offer options for all ages,” Stokes says. Like the larger Fitness Zone in Anacostia Park, the
porating the equipment. No one can reserve the Fitness Zone. “But if we have a line of people waiting to use a machine, that’s a good problem to have,” says Whitehead, who hopes ﬁtness experts will post exercise ideas to the park website. (The pushup bars, for instance, can also be used as hurdles, he says.) Probably no one will be as good at coming up with alternative uses for the equipment than its most active users: kids. The Fitness Zone may be designed for adults, but the playground set is also eager to row, bike and hoist heavy stuff. After inspecting the setup on Sunday, Jason Vezina, 36, said he suspected his daughter would be spending a lot more time with the situp bench “because she could slide down it.” VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)
sites encourage physical activity among adults who lack the time or money to get it elsewhere. At the opening of the $2.6 million renovation of the Benning Park playground in Ward 7 last fall, DPR planner Ella Faulkner said the six pieces there (including a cardio stepper and balance steps) were selected with community input. Mayor Vincent Gray, on hand for the ribbon-cutting, looked approvingly at the dragon-themed setup. “It’s a place for entire families,” he said. His favorite diversion? The We-Saw, a supersized version of a seesaw that’s big enough for six people — even people as big as him. V.H.

The obvious answer here is to compromise with just one or two extra days.

I constantly hear her whispering about me, trying to turn the rest of the staff against me. How do I make her back off? GET HER AWAY FROM ME
If her behavior is truly sabotage, t hen you need to doc u ment everything she’s done and talk to a supervisor. But I can’t help but wonder whether there’s some understandable extra sensitivity here on your part due to this complicated situation. Are there other times you’ve felt this way about women connected to your boyfriend? Is it common for you to feel harassed by people? Protect yourself, but give some thought to your underlying emotions that might be making this worse for you.

1 pound (about 1 bunch) asparagus, tough ends discarded 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided Salt 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps cut into quarters (or sixths if caps are large) 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 teaspoons minced garlic 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger 1 small red or green chili, such as a jalapeno or serrano, seeds and ribs discarded if desired, thinly sliced 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth 2 tablespoons oyster sauce 1 tablespoon cornstarch Cooked brown rice, to serve
Makes Four Servings If the asparagus stalks are very thick, use a vegetable peeler to shave off the thick skins starting just below the
tip and down to the bottom. Cut the stalks into angled ½-inch pieces. In a large skillet over high, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. When the oil is almost smoking, add all of the asparagus and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to medium-high and saute the asparagus, stirring, until it is crisp, tender and golden at some of the edges, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the asparagus to a bowl and set aside. Return the skillet to the heat and add another tablespoon of the oil, the shiitakes and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to medium and saute the mushrooms, stirring, until they are barely tender and golden around some of the edges, about 3 minutes. Transfer the shiitakes to the bowl with the asparagus. Return the skillet to the heat and add the remaining tablespoon of the oil and the shrimp. Saute the shrimp, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and chili and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. In a bowl, whisk together the broth, oyster sauce and cornstarch. Add the mixture to the skillet, whisking, and bring to a boil. Return the asparagus and the mushrooms to the skillet and simmer for 1 minute. To serve, spoon a mound of rice onto each of 4 plates, then top with a quarter of the asparagus and shrimp mixture.

Christina Hendricks says ‘Mad Men’s’ Joan ‘leaned in’ to get ahead in the 1960s Television
Christina Hendricks, who plays the brash bombshell Joan on “Mad Men,” still finds it surreal that the show is coming to an end after seven seasons: After the show airs seven episodes this spring, it will take a yearlong break before concluding with its final seven in 2015. But Joan appears to be in a good place. Over the years, she’s suffered many difficulties representative of what women dealt with in the 1960s-era workplace. But she’s still standing, and is now more powerful than ever. We talked to Hendricks, 38, just as “Mad Men” is starting to ﬁlm next year’s episodes, and got her thoughts on Joan’s best moments and fans’ relationship with the show.
ing the character?
It was interesting in the beginning because you had to really think about each moment you took and make sure you weren’t reacting like a modern woman who has these opportunities; you had to stop and remind yourself of those things. And I think now it sort of comes second nature to us.
“[The men of ‘Mad Men’] don’t know how to see someone smart and talented and powerful and also take pride in how they look.”
What would Joan think of the “Lean In” phenomenon, in terms of encouraging women to be more aggressive and climb the ladder and not be afraid to speak up?
— CHRISTIN A HENDRICK S,
I think for quite a few seasons you just saw Joan believe that she had the top position she was even capable of getting, and she was going to do the best absolute job that she could and she was. And it sort of helped to see Peggy widen the ranks at work. … I think it took seeing other people do it as well to realize that she didn’t just have to be the best at what she was doing, she could be the best at something even greater.
SAYING DESPITE THE TIME PERIOD, “MAD MEN” TELLS “HUMAN STORIES”
Are you getting nostalgic for the end, or does it still seem far away?
Are you ever surprised by the topics “Mad Men” covers that people can really relate to so closely today, even years later?
I’ve been nostalgic already for quite sometime, I think I started last season. (laughs) It’s going to be a big change for us, so we’re all feeling it pretty much by this point. Joan is a progressive woman, but she tries to be realistic about the ways a woman can succeed in that era. What’s it like balancing that while play-

I don’t think so, I mean, they’re very human stories. And unfortunately, even some of the stuff with racism and sexism and things like that, that stuff still very much goes on today. It’s just easier to talk about it when you look at it [through the lens of] history. … But it also opens up the conversation that it’s still happening. EMILY YAHR (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Baby Crazy: Aubrey Plaza told Vulture at the Tribeca Film Festival that she’s jealous of her “Parks and Recreation” co-star Amy Poehler, whose character is pregnant on the show. “I think they’re doing it to spite me,” Plaza said, “because for years I’ve been begging them to let me get April [Plaza’s character] pregnant and now they’re just getting her pregnant right in my face.” Plaza also hyped Thursday’s season finale, saying it would be “very satisfying.” (E XPRESS)

“In greater Vancouver, how much you can get for a house depends in part on whether the street address ends with a ‘4’ or an ‘8.’ ” — TOM JACOBS AT PSMAG.COM dissects ﬁndings from an Economic Inquiry report that in Vancouver neighborhoods where ethnic Chinese residents make up at least 18 percent of the population, houses with addresses ending with a “4” sold with an average $8,000 discount and houses with an “8” sold at a $10,000 premium. “The pronunciation of the word for ‘four’ is very similar to the word for ‘death’ in Mandarin, Cantonese, and several Chinese dialects,” the researchers wrote. “Conversely, the word for ‘eight’ is phonetically similar to the word for prosperity or wealth.”

Saraiya calls out the HBO show for having an obsession with rape for the sake of attracting “the all-important male demographic.” The most recent episode again transformed an encounter into the forced, non-consensual variety.
