Twisters Kill 16 in Three States Sunday’s storms just the beginning in rash of severe weather

The sky turned black as the funnel cloud closed in, and Maggie Caro rushed with her husband and two children to a Vilonia school shelter, where they were among the last to get inside before the doors were shut. “They were screaming, ‘Run! Run! It’s coming!’ ” Caro recalled. And then all hell broke loose. The half-mile-wide tornado carved an 80-mile path of destruction through the Little Rock suburbs Sunday evening, killing at least 14 people, flattening rows of homes, shredding cars along a highway and demolishing a brand-new school

Intact houses face destroyed homes in a Vilonia, Ark., neighborhood Monday.

before it even had a chance to open. Officials said the death toll could have been worse if residents hadn’t piled into underground storm shelters and fortified safe rooms after hearing forecasts, getting text alerts and phone calls, and hearing sirens blare through their neighborhoods.

Hearsay

Also on people’s minds: memories of a weaker tornado that smashed through on April 25, 2011. It took nearly the same path and killed at least four people. “You had people breaking down because they were reliving three years ago,” Kimber Standridge said

of the scene inside the community shelter just minutes before the twister hit. It was among a rash of tornadoes and violent storms across the Midwest and South on Sunday that killed 16 people in all. Another twister killed one person in Quapaw, Okla., then crossed into Kansas, where it destroyed more than 100 homes and businesses and injured 25 people in Baxter Springs. A building collapsed in Iowa from either a tornado or powerful straight-line winds, killing one woman. With forecasters warning of more of the same Monday across the South, a large tornado damaged homes and downed trees and power lines around Tupelo, Miss. As of Express’ deadline some injuries were being reported. ANDREW DEMILLO AND JIM SALTER (AP)

not be renewed. He said that he was dismissed after his campaign released a video parody. “Used on a daily basis, Winteregg in Congress will help you every time the moment is right — to have your voice heard at the federal level,” a narrator says in the ad. “If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Obama’s Creepy Honor Who cares about a school? Only a select few can get a species named after them

Obama is a parasite. He’s also a fungus, a spider and an extinct lizard. But before critics of President Barack Obama rejoice, having unappealing species named after you is apparently a good thing. “Honestly, it’s difficult for me to envision a higher honor,” Jason Bond, an Auburn University professor, said. “It’s permanent. In science, there are few things that we do as scientists that has the permanency that taxonomy does.” Bond, a spider expert at the university’s Department of Biological Sciences and its Museum of Natu-

Meet Aptostichus barackobamai.

ral History, discovered several new species of trapdoor spiders in late 2012, and named one of his favorites “Aptostichus barackobamai” after the president. It had unique characteristics, Bond said, like Obama. The spider, according to LiveScience, builds a protective shield and hides behind it before attacking prey (insert joke about dealing with House GOP). Last week Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced plans for a

Barack Obama Preparatory High School to open in fall 2017. There are already schools, and roads, and even a mountain in Antigua named after him. Not to mention a few … less stationary honors. Among them: “Caloplaca obamae”: A new lichen species, which is a kind of fungus, founded in April 2009 by a researcher at the University of California Riverside. “Paragordius obamai”: A parasite discovered in April 2012 near Obama’s father’s birthplace in Kenya and named after the president. The hairworm is unique because it can reproduce without a male. “Obamadon”: An ancient extinct lizard species named by Yale scientists after Obama just after he won re-election in 2012.

Elephants Need US Dear President Obama: We commend your administration for your firm commitment to end the devastating slaughter of elephants for their ivory and to ensure that the United States is not helping to drive the illegal wildlife trade. Along with 80% of the American people*, the undersigned companies, conservation groups and concerned individuals strongly support ending commercial trade in elephant ivory in the US. We believe we must take all necessary steps to protect these magnificent creatures from extinction. Fewer than half a million elephants remain in Africa’s savannas and jungles—a massive plunge over the last 50 years. Recently, the killing has surged: Poachers are slaughtering on average one elephant every 15 minutes, and some populations are now on a path to extinction. Reports from US intelligence agencies and the UN also show that profits from ivory trafficking are fueling crime, corruption and violence in fragile African democracies and financing organizations that threaten both American and African security. America’s role in the consumption and sale of ivory makes the US complicit in this crisis and weakens our moral authority to lead internationally. The US is the world’s second-largest market for wildlife products, and significant amounts of illegal elephant ivory have been found entering the American market. We must strengthen our laws to prevent this from happening and to encourage other countries to act with similar urgency. We thank you for your unprecedented leadership on this issue. Combined with new US efforts to combat wildlife trafficking, the ivory rules proposed by your administration can help turn the tide for Africa’s elephants. We share the American public’s desire to end the US role in the illegal ivory trade. We believe that your decision to halt elephant ivory commerce in the US is the right response to the current crisis. For the sake of the world’s elephants, we urge you to keep that promise.

Syrian President Bashar Assad is seeking to extend his 14-year reign.

An Egyptian court in the southern city of Minya sentenced 683 people to death Monday in the most recent of a series of mass trials that have alarmed the international community, nine months after a military coup ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president. The ruling coincided with Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy’s visit to Washington to meet with Secretary of State John Kerry in an effort to smooth relations between the United States and one of its most important Middle East allies. The Obama administration quickly condemned the ruling, saying that it defied “even the most basic standards of international justice.” “Egyptian leaders must take a stand against this illogical action and dangerous precedent, recog-

Egyptian women mourn Monday after hundreds were sentenced to death in a trial against alleged supporters of the country’s ousted president.

nizing that the repression of peaceful dissent will fuel the instability and radicalization that Egypt says it wishes to prevent,” press secretary Jay Carney said. The defendants, all alleged supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, included Mohammed Badie, the “supreme guide” of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, which

captured the lion’s share of votes in the country’s first democratic parliamentary and presidential elections in 2012. The most serious charge in Monday’s case was the killing of a single police officer in a nearby village during clashes between security forces and Morsi’s supporters across the nation last summer.

Defense attorneys said they would appeal the verdict. But anger was palpable in Minya and the nearby village of Adwa, home to most of the 683. “It’s all going to hell — the judiciary and everything else,” said Mohamed Saber, who sells juice and cigarettes from a roadside stand near the courthouse in Minya. “How can you sentence so many people for just one crime?” ERIN CUNNINGHAM AND ABIGAIL HAUSLOHNER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Mayor in Eastern Ukraine Shot Donetsk, Ukraine The mayor of Ukraine’s second-largest city was shot in the back Monday and hundreds of men attacked a peaceful pro-Ukraine rally with batons, bricks and stun grenades, wounding dozens as tensions soared in Ukraine’s volatile east. Kharkiv Mayor Hennady Kernes was a supporter of ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Kernes has swiveled his allegiance and now maintains civil relations with the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. He underwent surgery and was reported by the hospital to be in “grave but stable” condition. On Monday evening, a proUkraine rally was broken up by club- and knife-wielding separatists who ambushed the peaceful crowd as it marched through the center of

The United States on Monday imposed new asset freezes and visa bans on seven Russian government officials and sanctions on 17 companies linked to President Vladimir Putin’s “inner circle,” saying that the measures were a response to Russia’s failure to cease provocations in Ukraine. The sanctions include more restrictions on 13 of the Russian companies, imposing licensing requirements “with a presumption of denial” for the export of any U.S.-made items to those enterprises.

Don’t Have to Walk on Eggshells One of the people on my street has put a No Parking sign in front of her home on a public street. If anyone parks there, the response can be anything from yelling and screaming to eggs thrown at the car. Can a person legally reserve the space in front of their house on a public street and, if not, what would you suggest we do? No, and call the police. Is there word on when the groundbreaking will be on the Silver Line’s second phase? Work on phase two already is underway. For example, Dulles Air-

port visitors are going to notice that about 100 trees are being relocated this spring to make way for the tracks and airport station.

Does that mean a specific location for the airport station has been selected? Please tell me that they’re still not considering a station so distant that it would require a bus bridge? To save money, the station will be placed far from the terminal, by the daily parking garage. This is a mistake. It would be much better to put the station near where the passengers are. But it will be up to some future generation to correct this.

I’ve recently switched to taking the Green Line for work. The “schedule” is nonexistent. I can’t nail down any times when to leave in the morning or the evening. The train also often waits in the tunnel prior to approaching L’Enfant for extended periods of time. What is going on with this? Has Rush Plus derailed the timing? I think you’re probably seeing the effects of having the Green and Yellow line trains bunch up at the point where they come together to enter L’Enfant Plaza station. It’s possible that’s a Rush Plus issue, at least to some extent, because Rush Plus added trains to the Yellow Line.

Middle-Class Families Feel the Squeeze After Robin and Scott Johnson’s 13-year-old Durango started sputtering, the couple scrutinized their already-tight family budget, looking for a way to fit in car payments. Reliable transportation was not a luxury, so in February the Culpeper, Va., couple bought a used 2012 Dodge. As a result, they’ve fallen behind in the electric bills for March and April. The Johnsons both work, earning $90,000 between them, a sum that places the couple squarely in the middle of household incomes for the region. But for the Johnsons and many other American fami-

lies, being middle class means living paycheck to paycheck. The couple’s retirement savings are meager. The college fund? Nonexistent. The Johnsons, whose blended family includes three children under 18, are part of a disquieting shift that is recasting what it means to be middle class in America. “Once some bills are paid and we’ve gone grocery shopping, we don’t have enough to pay the other

lege tuition, whose skyrocketing cost has laid siege to the idea that your children will do better than you. A recent poll by The Washington Post and the University of Virginia found that 40 percent of those calling themselves middle class felt less financially secure than they were just a few years ago and 57 percent said they worry about meeting their bills. Less than half said they expect their kids to do any better. One factor behind the squeeze is that the middle class’ expectations — a house, lessons for the kids, the latest in home entertainment — have stayed the same or increased even as costs have soared. It’s particularly rough in the D.C. area, where salaries are among the highest in the nation but so are housing and child care expenses. CA ROL MOR EL LO A ND

The Johnsons’ $90,000 income is above the national household median of $51,000. But in the D.C. region, where the median income is $88,000, they are about average.

‘Phantom Planter’ Strikes Anew CRAIG HUDSON (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

This time, it’s with a public, big-screen video near the Metro Washington

Learn from respected political and policy experts at our top-ranked School of Public Affairs. Graduate degrees in political policy, public administration, and political science.

The way Henry Docter sees it, his quest was a noble one foiled by bureaucratic intransigence. “The Phantom Planter,” as Docter calls himself, has long aimed to beautify small pockets of the world. Toward that end, since 1979, he has spread flower seeds in barren public spaces, including at Metro’s Dupont Circle station. There, in 176 empty outdoor pots near the station’s north escalators, Docter planted seeds for hundreds of morning glories and others flowers — without permission from the transit authority. As the f lowers bloomed, he watered and he weeded. Metro wouldn’t stand for it.

3-5

Viewers on Sunday watch a music video created by Henry Docter across from the Dupont Circle Metro North stop.

Citing safety concerns (What if Docter fell and injured himself or others?), officials last June threatened him with “arrest, fines and imprisonment” if he tried to care for the flowers. A few weeks after the warning, maintenance workers removed the flowers.

Now Docter has struck back at Metro — using ridicule. With permission from the National Park Service, he said, he erected an 18-foot video screen in a park across the street from the north entrance to the Dupont Circle station and, Sunday night, played a video, a multicultural lament for his long-gone garden, which, right about now, might have been ready to bloom. Members of a wide swath of religious groups and cultural institutions, friends of Docter’s, musicians and even a couple of puppets made an appearance on the music video, in which they crooned: “Where have all the f lowers gone? Long time passing. Where have all the f lowers gone? Long time ago. Where have all the f lowers gone? Metro killed them everyone. When will they ever learn? W hen w ill t hey ever learn?” PAUL DUGGAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The Capital of Jet Lag? In Washington, sleep-deprived zombies regularly walk among us

Personal Tricks Of The Trade

Washington

Katie Redford tries to preset her body clock by jumping into a new time zone before she even gets there. She pulled an all-nighter before leaving South Africa. “By the time you get on the plane, you just conk out, and you have a head start on the time change,” she said.

Sleep Preparation

Drugs World Bank staff doctor Richard Kennedy said he has found that his international workforce is less likely than American counterparts to rely on medications. “This is a population that prefers to take nothing and just tough it out than take Ambien,” Kennedy said. “I find that we Americans are more likely to say, ‘Give me something.’ ”

THINKSTOCK / EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

It’s 9 a.m. Do you know where your hypothalamus is? Katie Redford thought hers was somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. Having returned from a trip to South Africa one day last month, she was still waiting for the part of the brain that regulates her internal clock to catch up, like a piece of delayed luggage. “It’s somewhere between here and London,” she said from her office at EarthRights International, a Washington-based human rights law firm that regularly dispatches her to distant time zones. With a circadian rhythm askew by seven hours, she was hoping that serial mugs of coffee would keep her going until she hit “the wall,” the profound 3 o’clock nosedive that defines the first few days back from a trip abroad. “I did three red-eye [flights] in seven days, so my body is like, ‘Whatever. Sleep when you can,’ ” Redford said. “But that’s not unusual around here. There’s always somebody just getting back from somewhere.” She’s right. Washington, home to the State Department, the Pentagon, the World Bank and countless international aid and advocacy groups, has long been a world capital of jet lag. But with a record-setting 7 million international passengers coming and going at Dulles International Airport last year, there is a greater chance than ever that the person next to you at Starbucks is on a sleep cycle split between D.C. and Dhaka, Bangladesh. According to local doctors and travel agents, the time-zone-hop-

Most travelers are in constant search of help. Among the techniques they use to combat jet lag:

“In Washington, you know at a conference where they’ve all flown in from around the world that by 2 o’clock, half the people will be sound asleep.” — JOSEPH M ACM A NUS, A VETERAN FOREIGN SERVICE OFFICER WHO IS NOW AMBASSADOR TO THE INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY IN VIENNA, AUSTRIA

ping among frequent f liers has become more intense in recent years as global trade has boomed, foreign crises have multiplied and the economic downturn has pushed more trips onto smaller staffs. “Maybe you used to get sent to Germany a few times a year, but now you’re tacking on Jakarta, too,” said Helene Emsellem, professor of neurology at George Washington University and director of the Center for Sleep and Wake Disor-

ders in Chevy Chase, Md. She is seeing more patients who have to travel more frequently, with less time to rest during trips, shorter breaks between them and a smaller chance of flying in the sleepinducing comfort of business class. “Washington travel schedules are mind-boggling,” Emsellem said. “They are sending people all over the world all of the time, and not always in the same direction.” Neither evolution nor medicine

has yet to catch up with humanity’s newfound ability to wake up on one side of the planet and go to sleep on the other. But the search goes on for time-zone treatments beyond sleep aids such as Lunesta or melatonin, or standing in the sun when you want your internal clock to think “morning.” The Food and Drug Administration has approved a drug for use by blind patients that helps them adjust their internal clocks without light cues. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have found a polypeptide that allows mice to adjust to a new “time zone” in half the usual time, raising hopes for an eventual jet lag pill. “It’s still years away,” Emsellem s a id . Unt i l t he n , t he s e m iadjusted sleepwalk among us. STE VE HENDRIX (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Routine Joseph Macmanus, a veteran Foreign Service officer, is legendary among diplomats and journalists for never changing his watch from East Coast time during five years of travel with Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Rodham Clinton. To keep in better touch with State Department headquarters, he slept during the day and worked all night in one world capital after another. No matter the local time, Macmanus would eat and sleep on Foggy Bottom time. “If it’s 8 p.m. in Washington and 9 a.m. in Beijing, that’s your window to sleep,” said Macmanus, who is now ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency. “Get up at 7 in the evening, and Washington is just waking.” (T WP)

Harper May Be Out Until July Nationals Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb and could miss more than two months, according to a person familiar with the situation. Harper visited Dr. Thomas Graham at the Cleveland Clinic on Monday for a final opinion on his battered left thumb, which had already landed him on the Nationals’ crowded disabled list. After Saturday, the Nationals worried Harper had damaged his ligament sliding into third base Friday night with a three-run triple. Harper, manager Matt Williams said Sunday, endured a similar injury while in high school, which added to the Nationals’ concern. Harper, 21, will miss a significant chunk of a season for the second time in his young career. Last year, the left knee bursitis he played through for much of the year forced him to the disabled list for 31 games and ultimately necessitated offseason surgery. The Nationals are already playing without injured regulars Doug Fister, Wilson Ramos and Ryan Zimmerman and reserve Scott Hairston. They also missed center fielder Denard Span for one week with a concussion. ADAM KILGORE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will undergo surgery on his left thumb.

Wizards forward Trevor Ariza has averaged 18 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in the first-round series against the Chicago Bulls. Washington is up 3-1 in the series.

Closing Time for Wizards Washington’s up 3-1, but it enters Game 5 with sense of urgency Wizards There was no overt joy for the Wizards on Monday as the team prepared for tonight’s Game 5 against Chicago. Despite holding a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-seven series, the Wizards are approaching the potential clinching game with the reserve of a team in much worse shape. “We’re desperate,” coach Randy Wittman said. “That’s how I want us playing. We haven’t done anything yet. We’ve won three games, and you have to win four. So we have not accomplished anything yet, and I want our guys desperate to get it done.” Without Nene in the lineup, Washington played its best game of the series Sunday to take a commanding series lead. With the scene shifting back to Chicago, the Wiz-

History Is on the Wizards’ Side Only eight of the 187 teams facing a 3-1 deficit have come back to win an NBA playoff series, which would seem to bode well for Washington: Year 2006 2003 1997 1995 1981 1979 1970 1968

ards are expecting the Bulls to throw everything at them to try to force a Game 6 back in D.C. “Their season is on the line,” forward Drew Gooden said. “They will be fighting, clawing, scratching, doing whatever it takes to keep their season alive.” The Wizards have already stolen two games in Chicago and have proved to be a much better road team this season, winning 22 games away from the Verizon Center after compiling just

Round West first round East first round East semifinals West semifinals East finals East finals West semifinals East finals

19 road victories over the past three seasons. Washington center Marcin Gortat said the team’s focus is singular when on the road, especially thus far in the playoffs. “I think we have more confidence playing on the road, because when you score a basket, we’re not going to be flexing to Chicago fans,” he said. “When you’re at home and you score a bucket, then we’re all getting crazy and nuts. We ain’t going to do that over there. We’re

just going to score and get back on defense. That’s the good part about it.” Wittman resists the notion that the Wizards are underdogs in this series and has pushed that mentality onto his players, who have responded in this physical series. “It’s going to be tough, definitely,” forward Trevor Booker said. “If we prepare right and stay focused, I think we can do it.” Gooden, one of the few Wizards who have been in this situation before, liked the way the team practiced heading into the franchise’s biggest game in years. “We know what we need to do,” he said. “We know the consequences if we don’t get this win. We need to put them away now.” ELLIOT T SMITH (FOR E XPRESS)

Commissioner to talk today about owner’s alleged racist rant NBA Outrage over racist comments purportedly made by embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling hit a crescendo Monday, with corporations pulling their sponsorship deals with the team and coach Doc Rivers saying he believes “a very strong message” is coming from the NBA in response to the scandal. That message will come today, when NBA Commissioner Adam

Silver holds a news conference in New York where he could reveal sanctions the league will impose on Sterling. A suspension of indef inite length and hefty fine — Silver can issue one of up to $1 million without approval of owners — are possible options. However, it remains unclear how far Silver’s powers can reach at this point, even though the NBA constitution gives the commissioner’s office a lot of latitude to protect the game’s best interest. The Clippers had Monday off, with Rivers saying he wanted his team to try to regroup mentally after a whirlwind weekend where Sterling’s alleged comments were

McPhee: ‘We Didn’t Catch That Break’ Ex-general manager says the Caps have perfect mix of players When George McPhee received a phone call from Capitals president Dick Patrick at 10 a.m. Saturday, he knew Patrick didn’t have good news for him. After nearly 17 years as general manager, McPhee was informed that his contract would not be renewed. “In this job, you’re 24 hours away from being fired at almost any time,” McPhee said Monday. “I signed up for it. … I refuse to be bitter about anything and I’m not going to look back, and I blame no one. I was the manager.” After the Capitals missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007, team owner Ted Leonsis and Patrick presided over a two-week organizational autopsy. They met with McPhee for 2½ hours last Thursday before reaching a final decision late Friday. Coach Adam Oates was also let go after two seasons, leaving Washington in search of its fourth coach since the start of the 2011-12 season. The Capitals qualified for the postseason in 10 of 16 seasons under McPhee’s guidance, but they won just three series following a 1998 Stanley Cup final appearance

Dominant regular seasons were followed by disappointing playoffs, a problem that persisted throughout McPhee’s tenure. “We didn’t catch that break, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen,” McPhee said. “This team is young enough, the veterans are at the right age here. You’ve got experienced players with young guys coming in. It’s the perfect combination. That’s what you need. “They may not have done it in phase one, but phase two is right there and they’re going to be good.” McPhee, however, will not be in Washington to see if that vision comes to fruition. “I did the best I could because that’s what you’re supposed to do,” McPhee said. “I put everything I had into it.” ADAM VINGAN (FOR EXPRESS)

Namaste Together There’s no one right way to do yoga. And there’s no one kind of person who does it. In honor of DC Yoga Week (through Sunday, dccy.org) — which celebrates this diversity of practices with free and reducedprice classes at more than 30 studios in D.C., Maryland and Virginia — here’s a look at five local instructors. Each took an individual path but they all ended up at the same place: on a yoga mat. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS); PHOTOS BY TEDDY WOLFF (FOR E XPRESS)

Waddy, a for mer w ide receiver on the Towson University football team, seems like he’d tackle anything. But when one of his teammates suggested he try yoga as a way to stay in shape after graduation, he shied away. It took months of prodding to get him to take a class. It took only a single session, however, for him to realize this was a touchdown. “I could get strength, flexibility and sweat in one workout,” he says. “I thought I’d be touching toes and planting flowers, but this was tough.” As he practiced, he discovered benefits that went way beyond the physical. He learned to handle discomfort on the mat, and then relied on those techniques when he felt the same sensations arise in the rest of his life. Within another few months, he completed teacher

training and turned yoga into his career. “I’m an example that anything is possible,” Waddy says. His athletic background helps with certain postures, but it’s been a liability in other respects. That competition mentality is hard to shake, Waddy admits. One of his biggest challenges? Learning to go into child’s pose. “It also takes strength to know when you need rest or restoration,” he says. That’s a lesson he’s eager to teach his students — or, as he likes to think of them, his “team.”

Event Horizon The main draw during DC Yoga Week is Saturday’s Yoga on the Mall. The free event starts at 10 a.m. at Target Constitution Gardens with 30 minutes of kid yoga This and beginner yoga. Then celebrity instructor Shiva Practice Rea — with assistance from local teachers — will lead an all-levels practice until noon. Want more outdoor yoga?

How powerful is yoga? “It changed me before I ever stepped foot in a studio,” Brooks says. That’s not entirely a good thing. She started out by following videos in her living room because she couldn’t find classes near her home in Lanham, Md. When she entered teacher training in 2011, it was with the goal of bringing more yoga to Prince George’s County. “I feel like yoga is something people in P.G. miss out on. It’s not like, ‘I saw that neighborhood studio and I’ll drop by.’ If you make it so there’s a big obstacle, that raises the stakes,” Brooks says. While waiting for the right teaching opportunit y in her neighborhood to come along, she’s been teaching “Yoga with Soul Music” every Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Yoga District studio on H Street. Setting a practice to a playlist enhances the experience, says Brooks, who selects familiar,

“You might think there are too many yoga studios, but there are never too many yoga studios,” says Rizzotto, who has a certain stake in the matter: She’s co-founder of Yoga Heights, which opens today near the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station. With her business partner a nd fel low i nst r uc tor, Je ss Pierno, Rizzotto hopes to “build a community that makes yoga approachable for every body, every level and every budget.” To reach out to those self-declared nonyogis, the studio is offering a wide range of classes and subsidizing costs for folks who are strapped for cash. (And all new students can take advantage of a “$30 for 30 days” deal.) In this Type A city, yoga is

especially important, says Rizzotto, who’s been practicing since she was a freshman at George Washington University. It’s easy for people here — Rizzotto included — to fall into a grind. Juggling her day job at a nonprofit, her nutrition and fitness blog (moar-fit.com) and her teaching gets stressful. “Yoga is the only thing that keeps me in balance,” she says. “I’m pulled in so many directions. It’s the one time I can tune out all the rest of the stuff in my life.”

STAIR CALHOUN, 62 Little River Yoga (6025 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, and 6399 Little River Turnpike, Alexandria; littleriveryoga.com)

W hat f irst attracted Calhoun to yoga was the coffee. She’d dabbled for decades but never committed to a practice until the early 1990s, when a friend suggested they go to class once a week and then grab java. The ritual was more stimulating than she ever imagined it could be. Calhoun started studying at other studios, including Unity Woods (owned by renowned Iyengar teacher John Schumacher) and the now-defunct Ashtanga Yoga Center. She soon needed a yoga fix every morning — and was teaching classes herself. At her pair of studios, Calhoun now specializes in leading Mysore,

a class that asks students to do a series of poses at their own pace with one-on-one guidance. It’s a style that’s suited to a mature instructor. “I can help with things maybe I can’t do,” she says. But usually, she forgets she’s at least 20 years older than most of the other people in the room. Maybe that’s because Calhoun is still deepening her practice. She’s recently become fascinated with chanting, and now leads a free weekly class at 8:30 a.m. Sundays. “I needed more experience before I could appreciate that part,” adds Calhoun, who plans to keep doing yoga as long as she can breathe.

When Fiori fractured his back in three places in 2000, his physician predicted he’d hurt for the rest of his life. Seeking relief, Fiori signed up at Willow Street Yoga. Six months of sessions with teachers talking him through proper posture and alignment, and he went off of his medication. Now there’s only one prescription he needs: “I can go seven to 10 days without yoga before I go back to that place of pain.” Fiori enrolled in teacher training to learn more therapeutic techniques, and wound up in front of the classroom. New students often look him up and down, not believing such a big guy could be an instructor, he says. That’s when he shows off what he can do. His favorite poses? Back bends. “They’re emotional for me because I used to be so afraid of doing them,” he says. “I thought I’d snap in two.” Fiori’s instructors, however, made sure the only thing he ever cracked was a smile. That’s how Fiori developed this teaching philosophy: “When doing something hard, tell an amusing story.”

On Death and Dating My friend’s husband died suddenly a few months ago and she has started dating again already. I don’t mean to be judgmental, but that seems too soon. She is seeing a lot of different guys and doesn’t seem to be really dealing with her husband’s death. I want to talk to her about this, but don’t want it to come across the wrong way. They don’t have kids, if that matters. WORRIED FRIEND

Doesn’t Dad Up My husband is lazy and doesn’t do much around the house or to help with child care. I’m constantly comparing him to my friends’ husbands and he comes up short every time. I’m embarrassed, but I don’t know how to change this. BEN CLAASSEN III

Everyone handles grieving in their own way, and what genuinely helps the healing process for some would quickly send others into the fetal position. I get that dating these guys might not be good for her. But to intervene, you’ll need to explain why that’s the case. It’s not enough just to object to her behavior because it doesn’t fit your model of grieving. Is she respecting and

after. An overhaul in the way your husband conducts his day-to-day life? A closer relationship between him and your kids? Some help in bulldozing mountains of laundry? This will take some soul-searching on your part about what you want out of your partnership and what you can realistically expect, and whether that discrepancy is a big or small deal. Bottom line: Ask for what you feel you need for you, the house and the kids. Don’t frame it as something he needs to do to keep up with Liam’s Dad.

TR AINER TIP

“My current nutrition plan calls for me to eat six times a day, when I used to eat maybe twice a day. I’ve addressed that by stocking my office with low sodium soup and protein drinks. I have one of those before I leave the office in the evening; then, when I get home, I have fruit and yogurt, or a few ounces of cheese and peanut butter.”

— Pamela

“My main goal now is clean eating— cutting out all of the sugars, fats and chemicals from my diet—and I have never felt better. I can pronounce every ingredient in everything I eat, and it’s such a great motivator to know that I’m fueling my body with what it needs. Another nice thing: this approach to nutrition is sustainable, not just another fad diet. I find myself craving things like fruit, and I actually feel satisfied and fuller longer.”

— Shaby

“Healthy nutrition habits are formed by honoring your body and choosing wisely what you put inside it. If you don’t buy it, you won’t eat it!”

— TANNER CHALLENGER: Emily LOCATION: Frederick Westview Gold’s Get Fit Challenge

“One thing my trainer told me: Due to my heavy lifting, I’d need to increase my calorie intake by adding extra lean meat to my meals. In order for me to practice good nutrition, I log everything I eat into an app on my phone. This helps me keep track of everything I eat, and it keeps me aware of how much protein, carbohydrates and fat I consume each day. It also lets me know when I’m reaching my daily calorie intake.”

yoga week fit Dog Yoga. If you’re the one looking at you, then stop going to mirrored studios, Scott says. “We don’t want you worrying how your clothes look, is this pose right.” And don’t judge yourself as if you’re in a competition. Yoga isn’t about counting how many poses you do. Just “do your best in the pose,” says Shannon Garvey, a Down Dog instructor. “The benefit comes in the discipline of staying with.”

How to Get Past Your Yoga Block

Devise a game plan if you’re not happy

THINKSTOCK/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

It’s not me. It’s yoga. That’s the mantra of yoga skeptics. They tried it, they didn’t like it. Maybe the teacher was too tough. Or was too preachy. Or made nutty health claims. My contact lens-wearing daughter was told not to wipe sweat from her eyes because the sweat would IMPROVE HER VISION! Yet legit studies show yoga can improve flexibility, ease back pain and reduce stress. The challenge is finding a class you’ll enjoy — and making the most of the class you take. MARC SILVER (FOR E XPRESS)

Figure out what you want Your odds of a happy experience are greater if you ponder your goals. “Some people are interested in meditation, some in stress reduction, some in lengthening their hamstring,” notes Laura Parris of Georgetown Yoga Therapy. Think about the kind of class you’d like. Hot or not? Would music inspire or distract you? Do you want a teacher who crisply describes poses? Or would you be OK with a yoga sermon? And how do you feel about being spritzed with lavender mist at the end of class? Make a checklist, then call a convenient studio and ask if there’s a class that would hit your sweet spot. Make sure you pick the right level, too. An “all levels” class might sound fine for a novice,

but local instructor Ayanna Smith cautions that the intermediate and advanced practitioners could “make you feel like you’re on the outside.” She recommends a beginners or “gentle” class: The teacher won’t just use a pose’s Sanskrit name and assume you know that chaturanga dandasana is a low pushup.

Don’t be self-conscious “Let go of your ego,” advises Suzie Blackman, who teaches at Village Yoga in Potomac, Md., and other

Event Horizon

Ninjas vs. Spartans If Darwin were in town Saturday, he’d probably be leaping on top of boxes and scrambling over walls at the reopening of Urban Evolution (5505 Cherokee Ave., Alexandria; urbanevo.com), which will host free classes — in parkour, aerial silks and more — between 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. But maybe he’d start the day with people who really believe in the survival of the fittest at the Spartan Race Workout ( 1200 Clifton St. NW). The 9-11 a.m. outdoor class is free, but you have to register: spartanraceworkout.com. (E XPRESS)

studios. Before class, tell the teacher you’re a yoga greenhorn and point out any injuries you have. If you don’t want the teacher to touch you, say so. And if you’re struggling during class, Blackman suggests: “Signal the teacher, without speaking too loud: Can you come over? I have a question.” You may feel as if everyone’s looking at you. But yogis are busy thinking about their own aches and pains and poses, reassures Preston Scott, who has taught at D.C.’s Down

“If you feel like you’re not at the right place at the right time, you need to listen to yourself.” — AYANNA SMITH, LOCAL YOGA INSTRUCTOR

What if you’re midway through the class and just don’t like it? One thing to remember is you don’t have to do everything the teacher says. “The voice of the teacher is there to guide you,” says Ilona Holland, who taught at local studios before a move to Nebraska. “But your voice is the most important to listen to.” If you fear you might “push it and pull something, zone the teacher out.” What about an exit strategy? “If you feel like you’re not at the right place at the right time, you need to listen to yourself,” suggests Smith, who says there’s nothing wrong with slipping out quietly. “I’ve had people do that to me.” She doesn’t take it personally. But there can be virtues to sticking it out. “I’m gonna get really yoga on you,” says Flow Yoga Center’s Peg Mulqueen. “You become clearer about who you are, what you hold important, what you’re looking for in a class.” Even a session you kind of hated is “a great yoga class because it’s taught you something about you.” And maybe next time, you’ll find your 60 minutes of zen.

The stadium tour will visit Philadelphia; East Rutherford, N.J.; Chicago; Baltimore; and Los Angeles. It wraps Aug. 5 in San Francisco. Pre-sale tickets go on sale today. (AP) BOOKS

‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ to Be Published as an E-Book Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” will become available as an e-book and digital audiobook on July 8, HarperCollins Publishers announced Monday. Through her publisher, Lee — who turned 88 on Monday — said: “I’m still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries. I am amazed and humbled that ‘Mockingbird’ has survived this long. This is ‘Mockingbird’ for a new generation.” (AP) HOBBIES

Willie Nelson Receives Fifth-Degree Black Belt Country music icon Willie Nelson on Monday earned his fifth-degree black belt in the martial art of Gong Kwon Yu Sul. The easygoing songwriter showed off his fighting chops at an Austin, Texas, studio. Nelson’s 81st birthday is Wednesday — though he’s claimed that it’s actually a day earlier: today. (AP)

“Bad Teacher” premiered Thursday night on CBS, following the first episode of “Fargo” earlier this month on FX. And in May, NBC will grace us with a four-hour miniseries based on the creepiest movie about pregnancy, “Rosemary’s Baby.” The whole TV-show-based-on-a-movie genre can go either way, and historically, it isn’t a great plan, even if they do keep getting made. It’s a lot easier to sell a TV show to a network based on an alreadyestablished idea, especially one that was a hit at the box office. Plus, producers and executives hope that fans of the movie will automatically serve as a built-in audience for the show. There’s a long list of movie-to-TV adaptations in history (e.g. “M*A*S*H”); here’s a look at four examples and some lessons learned that should serve as a warning and, in a couple of cases, an inspiration.

‘The Firm’ (NBC) Lifespan: One season, January 2012 – July 2012 Movie inspiration: “The Firm” in 1993 How true is the show to the movie? The character names and backstories were the same from both the John Grisham novel and the movie, where Mitch McDeere (originally Tom Cruise) is a lawyer who learns his fancy firm is owned by the Mafia and eventually rats them out to the FBI. Sadly, the TV version of Mitch (Josh Lucas, above) was a moron who thought it was fine for his family to resume normal life and leave witness protection after

EMILY YAHR (THE WASHINGTON POST)

only 10 years. Because the mob always forgets. Is that the saying? Was the show a good idea? In theory, sure, because the John Grisham book and the movie were both big hits. In practice? Yikes. NBC had made a 22-episode commitment

so the network had to air them all, but after six episodes of shockingly low ratings, it was shipped from Thursday nights to Saturdays. Plus, the pilot started on shaky ground by introducing way too many storylines, only two of which were interesting.

NBC

MUSIC

NBC

Beyonce and Jay Z will play stadiums across the country starting June 25.

Lifespan: Three seasons and counting (Season 4 starts June 23), June 2011 – present Movie inspiration: “Teen Wolf” in 1985 How true is the show to the movie? Um, both main characters are named Scott — that’s about it. In the movie, Michael J. Fox became a werewolf because it was genetic. In the TV show, (the superripped) Tyler Posey, (above right, with Crystal Reed) was bitten by another werewolf. Plus, the film was a comedy and MTV’s whole take is more “Twilight-y.” Was the show a good idea? Oh yeah — it’s officially a big hit for MTV, which cashed in at the perfect time on the sci-fi fantasy teen phase that is apparently never-ending. There’s even an after-show.

As Seen On Film

THINKSTOCK / EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

FREDERIC J. BROWN (GETTY IMAGES)

‘Clueless’ (ABC AND UPN) Lifespan: Three seasons, September 1996 – May 1999 Movie inspiration: “Clueless” in 1995 How true is the show to the movie? A few of the actors from the movie did make the journey to the show: Stacey Dash as Dionne, Elisa Donovan as Amber and Donald Faison as Murray. But many actors were replaced, and as many have noted, the only thing Movie Cher (Alicia Silverstone, above right, with Brittany Murphy) and TV Cher (Rachel Blanchard) shared was blond hair. The show did chronicle high jinks at a ritzy high school but lacked the spark of the original. Was the show a good idea? No …  just no. It was a mistake to try to capture the magic of Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd and the rest of the original cast on the small screen, without two of its biggest stars. ABC made a good faith effort and then canceled it after one season; UPN picked it up for two more, but viewership dropped drastically.

‘Parenthood’ (NBC) Lifespan: Five seasons and counting, March 2010 – present Movie inspiration: “Parenthood” in 1989 How true is the show to the movie? They’re both about large, dysfunctional families; similarities between the movie family (the Buckmans) and the newer version (the Bravermans, including Lauren Graham, above left, and Mae Whitman) essentially stop there. Was the show a good idea? There are diehard fans of the NBC series who would freak out if you even asked the question — that’s how passionate they are about the critically beloved (but generally mediocre-rated) show. The drama has a passionate fanbase that’s probably saved it from cancellation, though it’s finally getting some recognition from NBC.

“Must. Resist. Urge. To Tell Readers. ‘Get On Your Feet’ and get tickets for this....” — REBECCA ROSE AT JEZEBEL.COM

tries to contain her excitement at New York Daily News’ report that a Gloria Estefan musical, called “On Your Feet,” is headed to Broadway next year. The production, which will tell the story of her rise to fame and recovery from breaking her back in 1990, will have an accompanying reality TV show based on the search to find three young women to play Estefan in her teens and 20s.

“If the iPad is a fad, it’s the greatest fad in the history of American business.” — MGSIEGLER AT MEDIUM. COM thinks that references

to having reached “peak iPad” only matter to Wall Street analysts. Apple reported last week that it sold 16 million tablets in the past quarter versus the 19 million it moved in the same period last year.

“So Much Much” — COMMENTER REDSNOWFOX AT THEVERGE.COM responds

to seeing photos of the “Dogecar” that NASCAR driver Josh Wise will drive at the Talladega Superspeedway on May 4. Reddit supporters of the Shiba Inu-branded digital currency raised more than $50,000 to make the car a reality.

“Apparently, the Maverick defense was just a bit more committed to moving forward, as it defeated the offense in the game, 38-33. Maybe next year the offense can make time for some pregame sword-swallowing.” — DESMOND BIELER AT WASHINGTONPOST .COM/BLOGS/EARLY-LEAD interprets the

real impact of last week’s Minnesota State-Mankato football team-building exercise that went viral on Twitter. Members of the coaching staff, above, and the team participated in the exercise prior to the team’s spring game. “If they can eat fire, they can do anything!” a school official said in a statement to the Post.

“I finished the deliciously salty, expertly engineered meal. My only complaint? The apples in the cobbler were mushy, but hey, they had been harvested almost two decades earlier.” — SCOTT DESIMON AT BONAPPETIT.COM recalls

house-sitting for his boss back in the early ’90s and discovering — then consuming — a Swanson Salisbury steak dinner from 1976 that he found in her freezer.

MEDIUM,

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may have to ask others to rearrange their schedules and make other concessions to an abrupt and unexpected change in your fortunes. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have trouble getting started, but once you do, you’re likely to achieve something that wins you a good deal of praise. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may not feel rested as the day begins because so much has been on your mind that it has crept into your dreams. Don’t push it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may have to deal with a harsh financial reality that you have, in fact, tried to avoid or prevent in the past days or weeks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It may be time for you to accept the fact that not everything can be done as planned. An important lesson is learned at this time.

Monday’s Solution

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You can observe others from an unusual vantage point. The result, of course, is likely to be a dramatically adjusted set of opinions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may think that you’re just playing a game, but others are not so sure. In fact, many may react quite adversely to your antics. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You have what it takes to fulfill certain responsibilities ahead of schedule, freeing up your agenda immeasurably.

The playwright of Valerie Harper’s Broadway show “Looped” is suing the actress for $2 million, claiming she didn’t disclose she had cancer until after she signed on to star in the play.

“I would love to sit him in a room … and talk with him for an hour just one on one.”

‘Don’t Blame Me, I’m Just a Manchild’ Coldplay’s Chris Martin told BBC Radio 1 that his split with Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t a “breakdown” of their marriage, but “more a realization about trying to grow up basically.” “If you can’t open yourself up, you can’t appreciate the wonder inside,” he continued, adding, “I’ve got to … make some changes.” (EXPRESS)
