U.S. Is America’s Biggest Creditor Washington Despite what you may have heard, China isn’t the country’s biggest creditor. America is. The bulk of the national debt — soon to exceed a staggering $17 trillion — is held by the Federal Reserve, Social Security system, various pension plans for civil service workers and military personnel, U.S. banks, mutual funds, private pension plans, insurance companies and individual domestic investors. China is responsible for just a shade more than 7 percent of that debt. And while it remains the single largest foreign lender (just ahead of Japan), China’s been slowly trimming its holdings, down from nearly 10 percent a few years ago. Overall, all foreign investors — including national central banks — account for roughly one-third of the total outstanding federal government debt. Even still, congressional leaders are already drawing lines in
Debt-Ceiling Fight The national debt will soon be front-and-center again as a deeply divided Congress wrestles with an expected new Obama administration request to increase the government’s borrowing authority, the legislatively set debt ceiling. The higher limit would not authorize borrowing for new spending but just enables the government to pay all of the bills already racked up. (AP)
The amount in U.S. Treasury bonds and bills that China holds — $1.22 trillion of the current $16.88 trillion total national debt, according to the Treasury Department.
The amount of the debt that Social Security and the Federal Reserve hold: $2.7 trillion in Social Security’s trust fund and $1.7 trillion in Treasury notes and bonds held by the Fed. THINKSTOCK/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
But the loans from China are at issue in the debt-ceiling fight
the sand for the next big ﬁscal ﬁght this summer. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said that the only way the GOP-led House will go along with raising the country’s borrowing ceiling is if President Barack Obama and the Democrats come up with a “dollar-for-dollar”
amount in budget cuts. Yet despite China’s relatively shrinking share of the U.S. debt, it continues to be the top poster child for ﬁnancing America’s deficit spending habit, a favorite target for politicians in both parties. U.S. politicians see the moun-
tain of debt, but investors globally view U.S. Treasury securities as among the world’s safest ﬁnancial havens, reﬂected in part by their current super-low yields. “There’s a huge misconception here,” said Nicholas R. Lardy, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. “The guy on the street thinks that we’re up to our ears in indebtedness to China. And it is a large absolute amount. But the public holds a lot more. And the politicians have not done anything to try to have a more reasonable conversation about this.” TOM R AUM (AP)

Ginjer, a 9-year-old girl who got New Jersey’s tough-guy governor to shed a tear as he comforted her after Superstorm Sandy destroyed her home, is bummed because she now lives far from her best friend. A New Jersey woman whose home was overtaken by mold still cries when she drives through the area. A New York City man whose home burned can’t wait to build a new one.

ery. Tens of thousands of people remain homeless. Housing, business, tourism and coastal protection all remain major issues with the summer vacation and hurri-
cane seasons almost here again. And yet, by other measures, remarkable progress has been made. Boardwalks, the tourism lifeblood of the region, are springing back to life. Beaches that were washed away are coming back, thanks both to nature and bulldozers. And while towns fortify beaches and dunes and put up sea walls, rock barriers or even sand-filled fabric tubes to guard against future
storms, state governments are readying hundreds of millions of dollars to buy out homeowners in ﬂood-prone areas who want to leave. Ginjer Doherty, now 10, said she is sad that her home in Middletown, N.J., won’t be ready until October; her mom says it has been gutted and needs to be elevated after Sandy ripped the front wall off. Of the delay, Ginjer said simply, “It stinks.” WAYNE PARRY (AP) ADVERTISEMENT

Grocery store shelves burst at the seams with upwards of 10,000 new food and beverage products to choose from each year. No wonder we’re stressed out. Even though many of those products won’t make it past their ﬁrst year, some of them will make the most of America’s ﬁckle eating habits and even change are consumption hab-

Cabinets and closets in American households might currently contain more than 10 gallons worth of harmful chemicals, but with harmful chemicals getting a bad rap all around, experts say this number will likely decrease each year.
Although they’re disguised by names like formaldehyde, phenol, hydrochloride acid, perchlorethylene and petroleum distillates, toxic chemicals lurk in everything from the fragrances of air fresheners to carpet cleaners; dishwasher detergents to furniture polish. There’s plenty of clear evidence that these harsh chemicals pose a health danger, and there are other chemicals out there that have never even been tested.

Damascus, Syria Syria’s prime minister narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in the heart of the heavily defended capital Monday, state media said, laying bare the vulnerability of President Bashar Assad’s regime. The bombing, which killed at least two other people, highlights an accelerating campaign targeting government ofﬁcials, from mid-level civil servants to the highest echelons of the Syrian regime. State television said Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi was not hurt in the bombing, which struck his convoy as it drove through the posh Mazzeh neighborhood — home to embassies, government officials and business elites with close ties to the regime.

scene broadcast on state TV showed charred cars and a burnt-out bus in a street littered with rubble. The blast punctuated a series of attacks on government ofﬁcials in recent weeks. On April 18, gunmen shot dead the head of public relations at the Ministry of Social
Affairs while he dined at a restaurant. A day later, a Syrian army colonel was killed, and ﬁve days after that, a bomb killed an ofﬁcial from the Electricity Ministry. Then there are the larger attacks that have shaken the regime. Last month, a suicide bomb-

World Prague Mayor Faults Gas In Explosion That Hurt 35 Prague A powerful blast believed to be a gas explosion ripped open an office building in the center of Prague on Monday, injuring at least 35 people and sending shockwaves through the Old Town tourist district. The blast shattered windows in the scenic area of charming streets and postcard-pretty buildings, sending glass ﬂying. “I was in the bathroom, no windows, the door was closed,” said Z.B. Haislip, a student from Raleigh, N.C., who was in a nearby building. “Honestly, if I had been in my bed, I would have been covered in glass.”
Prague mayor Bohuslav Svoboda ruled out a terrorist attack, saying the blast was a gas explosion. An AP cameraman ﬁlming at the time of the blast said it was felt on the famed 15th-century Charles Bridge over the Vltava River, which was packed with tourists. Two or three people were still believed to be missing, but ofﬁcials said it appeared no one had died. The Prague blast comes the day after a possible gas explosion ripped off the side of a ﬁve-story residential building in France’s Champagne country, killing at least two people and injuring 14 others In 2006, another gas blast in Prague killed two men.

Could Scofflaws Ruin Metro? More and more, the rules against eating and drinking on Metro are being ﬂouted. Usually it’s just a furtive chip, but I see more people openly having whole meals on board. Last week was the last straw: seeing someone having a smoke while waiting at the White Flint station. Can you suggest that Metro deploy some of its largely invisible police force to make occasional appearances on the trains to issue warnings or summonses as appropriate? Disrespecting minor rules can quickly degenerate into signiﬁcant lawlessness.
I certainly see people eating and drinking on the trains. I don’t know how to measure whether there’s any more of it than in past years. I also wish the transit police force were larger, so more uniformed ofﬁcers could ride trains and buses, especially just before and after school. Still, it would require a very large and very expensive increase in the size of the force before riders noticed the additional presence.
You’ve mentioned that extra trains cost more money. Metro seems to argue both ways. When ridership falls,

they complain about not enough people. When it spikes, they ﬁnd other reasons to complain. If more people are riding, such as after games, wouldn’t it make sense for Metro to put out more trains on its own. Then even more people would ride Metro. It seems like simple supply and demand. I would be more likely to take Metro to sporting events if I knew I would have an easy commute home and skip the problems of parking. Couple of things: In good times and in bad times, Metro loses money. Fares cover less than two-thirds the cost of a ride. The taxpayers make up the difference.

United game would be very good for fans but probably wouldn’t help Metro’s bottom line much, if at all. In other words, I think the cost of the extra systemwide service in power, personnel and equipment would very likely outweigh the extra offpeak revenue that would be generated by the additional riders.
Will the Capitals be putting the required deposit down with Metro for late-night hockey games, just in case we go two or three overtimes again? My recollection is that the Caps do have such an agreement with Metro. The Caps and Rangers are scheduled to play at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Verizon Center. Last spring, the Caps covered the $29,500 cost of keeping Metrorail open an hour late after a triple-overtime game.

‘Peanut’ Is Back to the Ballgame A baseball legend pitches the sport to the city’s black youth
“I’ve decided that before I go, I am going to see people like me playing baseball again.”
— M A MIE JOHNSON, THE FIRST FEMALE PITCHER IN AN ALL-MALE BASEBALL PROKATHERINE FREY/TWP
Major League Baseball has convened a brain trust to figure out how to get more African-Americans to play baseball. The District? It has Mamie “Peanut” Johnson. “I am bringing baseball back to this community,” declared Johnson, 77 and silver-haired. In 1953, Johnson fastballed her way into history when she became the ﬁrst female pitcher in an allmale professional baseball league. But before she became a player with the Indianapolis Clowns during the ﬁnal seasons of the Negro League, she was just a tiny teenage girl striking out grown men

on a playground ﬁeld in Northeast. Earlier this month, that very playing field was named in her honor. But there’s no mound, no home plate, no dugout. Nope. Mamie “Peanut” Johnson Field is used for football. Over the past couple of decades, interest in baseball has plummeted among young African-Ameri-
cans. In D.C., which once boasted one of the best Negro League teams in the Washington Grays, there are only two African-Americans on the Nationals’ active roster.

But she says her mind and her will remain just as effective as her fastball. “Can I bring baseball back?

The current budget for senior services is around $30 million, but seniors at the rally said more is needed to support living in a city where basic necessities have become increasingly expensive. “The people with the greatest needs are the ones less able to speak up for themselves,” said Sally White, executive director of Iona Senior Services, a nonproﬁt that helped plan the rally. Around 11 percent of the city’s residents are 65 or older.
LivingSocial is undertaking a massive cleanup since it said Friday that its consumer records had been compromised. The attack on the company’s systems revealed the names, email addresses, encrypted passwords and birth dates of more than 50 million of its users worldwide. The company has notified users affected by the attack and is asking them to change their passwords. So far, the process, while unfortunate, has “gone fairly smoothly,” said LivingSocial spokesman Andrew Weinstein.

Cover Story “I’m proud to call Jason Collins a friend.”
— FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON, who has known
Symbolic Pick Free agent Jason Collins once said his Wizards uniform number – 98 – was an effort to make life difficult for referees calling fouls. But on Monday, Collins explained the real reason: 98 was a tribute to Matthew Shepard, a college student slain in 1998 in an anti-gay hate crime. “When I put on my jersey,” he wrote in Sports Illustrated, “I was making a statement to myself, my family.” (T WP)

support for Collins
“We are extremely proud of Jason and support his decision to live his life proudly and openly.” — WIZARDS GENERAL MANAGER ERNIE GRUNFELD
in a statement released by the team
As Jason Collins, a 7-foot center for the Washington Wizards, played out the final weeks of his 12th NBA season this
spring, he was also finalizing plans for an announcement that would send shock waves across the world of sports. That announcement came Monday with the online publication of a story in Sports Illustrated: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center,” he wrote. “I’m black. And I’m gay.” With that, Collins became the first active male athlete in a major U.S. professional sports league to come out of the closet — a designation that is certain to elevate this relatively anonymous player into a historic figure in the sports and gay-rights realms. Ladies First While Jason Collins is the first gay male athlete in the four major U.S. sports (football, baseball, basketball and hockey) to come out while still playing, there have been several high-profile athletes who have come out as lesbians. (E XPRESS)
Martina Navratilova, tennis: The 18-time Grand Slam winner came out in 1981.
Billie Jean King, tennis: In 1981, King came out as bisexual amid a palimony suit brought by a former partner; she now identifies as gay.
“Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue.” — NBA COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN in a statement
“I didn’t set out to be the ﬁrst openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport,” Collins wrote. “But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different.’ If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.” The ﬁrst wave of public reaction to Collins’ announcement was overwhelmingly positive. Until recent years, the notion of an openly gay male athlete was thought to be a near-impossibility in major U.S. professional sports, where the testosterone-fueled culture of the locker room often bordered on homophobia. While celebrated female athletes such as Martina Navratilova and Sheryl Swoopes were comfortably out of the closet during their careers, no active male athlete could afford to take a similar step. As recently as 2002, baseball star Mike Piazza felt compelled to call a news conference to refute rumors he was gay. In 2007, former NBA all-star guard Tim Hardaway said on a radio show: “I don’t like gay people and I don’t like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don’t like it. It shouldn’t be in the world or in the United States.” Even in 2011, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant was ﬁned $100,000 for using a homophobic slur in a rant against a referee. But in recent months, the widespread gains in acceptance toward gays in American society as a whole began to trickle down to the major U.S. sports leagues. Amid growing speculation that an active athlete would soon come out of the closet, the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB began preparing. In some regards, Collins may be the perfect athlete to break this barrier. As a fringe player in his sport and nearing his career’s end, the free agent has little social capital — in the way of commercial endorsements and job security — to risk, and he became a far more important ﬁgure in his sport by coming out of the closet than he ever was in it. DAVE SHEININ AND MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Rosie Jones, golf: Jones came out in 2004 and entered into a sponsorship agreement with Olivia, a travel company for lesbians.
Megan Rapinoe, soccer: The U.S. soccer star came out before winning the gold medal in the 2012 Olympics.

Caps’ Common Enemy
Past Meetings Here’s a recap of recent playoff meetings between the Caps and Rangers:
The third-seeded Capitals and sixth-seeded Rangers will meet in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the third-straight season and fourth time in the past five years. Here’s what to watch for during the series, which opens Thursday at Verizon Center. ADAM VINGAN (FOR EXPRESS)
2012 Eastern Conference Semifinals Rangers 4, Capitals 3 The two teams rotated victories in this series. In Game 7, the Caps’ Roman Hamrlik scored with 9:17 left in the third period to cut into the Rangers’ two-goal lead, but New York held on for a 2-1 win at Madison Square Garden.
2011 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Capitals 4, Rangers 1 Caps goalie Michal Neuvirth had a stellar series, allowing eight goals in five games. The top-seeded Caps used two overtime wins to advance to the second round.
PAUL BERESWILL/GETTY IMAGES
The Caps played the Rangers three times in the regular season with New York winning two of those meetings.
The Pressure Is on … THE CAPS AS A WHOLE One of the more prevalent knocks against the Capitals this season was that they feasted on the dregs of the Eastern Conference. While Washington won 15 of 18 against the Southeast Division, it finished 7-12-1 against the other seven Eastern playoff participants, with only three wins in regulation. They will certainly have to shake that stigma. Past playoff letdowns also loom. The Caps are in the postseason for the sixth-straight season, but they have yet to advance past the conference semifinals.
THE RANGERS’ RICK NASH The Rangers acquired Nash from the Blue Jackets last summer to give them another threat on offense. He led the Rangers with 21 goals, but he has never felt the pressure that he is about to experience. Expectations in New York are exponentially higher than those in Columbus. Without former Rangers whipping boy Marian Gaborik to place the blame on if things go wrong, Nash, who has never won a playoff game in nine previous seasons, will receive plenty of criticism if New York falters.
Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Capitals 4, Rangers 3 With the Caps down 3-1, it didn’t look promising. But Washington’s series comeback was completed by a late goal from veteran Sergei Fedorov in a 2-1 Game 7 victory. (EXPRESS)
Secret Weapons MARTIN ERAT
General manager George McPhee acquired the veteran winger with 46 games of postseason experience from Nashville at the trade deadline to bolster a roster that he felt could compete without significant changes. Erat will not only be tasked with providing secondary scoring, but he must play tough vs. the physical Rangers.
In 13 games since arriving from Columbus, Brassard has 11 points and has provided a scoring punch at both even strength and on the power play. Scoring depth is integral to postseason success, and the 25-year-old has enough skill to make a difference behind New York’s primary offensive threats.

best 26.8 percent power play was the NHL’s highest in more than 20 years. New York allowed only 3.08 power play opportunities per game, well below the league average of 3.32, and earned an NHL-low 9.2 penalty minutes per game. The Rangers are physical, but disciplined, so the Capitals must take advantage of their power play opportunities when they present themselves. (A.V.)

Instructor Jen Rene, in yellow, helps a student during a Mysore class at Flow Yoga Center.
Never Out Of Practice Mysore yoga classes help students advance at just the right pace
Before 28-year-old Scott Heerman got acquainted with Mysore, he was sure it was only meant for the “yoga elite,” those mysterious creatures who have memorized — and mastered — every pose. Ellie Clarke, 28, worried that other students might laugh at her and that her instructor would constantly bark “No, you can’t do that.” Even Peg Mulqueen, who teaches Mysore, once wrote it off as “some
exclusive club for really strong people or responsible people.” But Mysore is really just the traditional method of teaching Ashtanga, a series of athletic poses that demand both strength and ﬂexibility. Rather than have students go through his prescribed list of postures together, the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (whose school in Mysore, India, is now run by his grandson) had them work at their own pace, offering one-on-one guidance when needed. “If you’re used to a regular class, and you peek into a Mysore class, you ask what’s happening because every-
one’s doing something different,” says Debra Perlson-Mishalove, owner of Logan Circle’s Flow Yoga Center, one of several local studios that have recently put Mysore on their schedules. The boom has made Mysore accessible to Washingtonians, who are demanding a deeper connection to their practice, Perlson-Mishalove says. And although it can be intimidating to folks used to following the leader, people are getting hooked on the style. “The best reason to try it is that it’s a private class in a group setting,” says Keith Moore, owner of the yearold Ashtanga Yoga Studio D.C., which runs Mysore classes every morning. “It’s tailored to you like a couture suit.” First-timers get personal training in a few postures, starting with ﬁve rounds of sun salutations, and that may be all they do. As they return to class and master that section, the instructor adds on. Advanced students can complete the beginning of the series, but at

some point, even people who can hook their legs around their necks need an assist, a modiﬁcation or a pep talk. It’s that customization that persuaded Heerman to try Mysore at Flow after a hamstring injury. He could focus on his postures, his breath and his ability, and in that sense, he realized everyone in the room was doing the same thing whether they were “on one foot or barely standing.” Clarke, another Flow student, quickly learned that it’s never embarrassing to forget the sequence. That’s what teachers are there for, she says.

Still, Mysore might not be everyone’s cup of tea — or coffee, which many students drink in order to wake up in time for class. As in India, it typically starts before dawn, and the goal is to come as much as possible. “If you can, start with three days a week,” says Faith Scimecca, owner of Woodley Park Yoga. “Any less than that makes it harder to memorize.” Getting up early becomes part of the practice, says Antonella Ancilloni, who runs Quiet Mind’s Mysore program. The schedule encourages students to make a commitment and alter other habits that get in the way. Not a morning person? It’s possible to arrive near the end of the class, particularly for newbies with a short practice. And Little River Yoga in Arlington also offers early evening classes. The window works well with hectic schedules because students can pick their start time, says owner Stair Calhoun. And there’s no reason to be scared, says Tiffany Rogers, 35, a new Mysore student who initially got the jitters just opening the door to the studio at Flow. “Now it feels like home,” she says.

Testimonial From a GOLD’S GYM Member:
BEN CLAASSEN III
Not Together? Keep It That Way
Eating on Eggshells No one is allowed to say anything negative, ever, about my husband’s cooking. He’s such a perfectionist and prides himself on doing everything just right, and once it’s up to his standards, he gets deeply annoyed if anyone mentions anything even minor about it. It has gotten really embarrassing. Help! MARRIED TO A PERFECTIONIST It’s clear that cooking is an area where, for whatever reason, criticism is painful for him. Plenty of people can relate. (What’s that you’re trying to say about my goulash?) What I’m surprised at is how often other people are apparently commenting negatively on his cooking. Who’s coming over for dinner, the judges from “Iron Chef”? But the next time he’s over the top with his annoyance, pick a pri-
vate time later on to talk to him about it. “You know how much I love your cooking, and Sarah does, too. But you seemed to get really upset when she made the paprika comment. How can I help you feel OK when things like this happen? It’s something I’ve been noticing lately.” Don’t pile it on, and if he’s not responsive, let it lie. At least you’ve planted the seed, and then you can keep returning to it.
I’ve been friends with this guy for almost three years. I met him when he was in a relationship. We were intimate during his relationship and have been since his relationship ended a year ago. I want to be more than friends, but he says that he doesn’t want to be in a relationship because he’s not ready for marriage. He wants me to wait for him until he’s ready, but I’m not sure if it’s a waste of my time. He says that he wants me to spend more time with him and let things naturally happen. WONDERING
He wants to continue to “spend more time” and “let things naturally happen.” Sounds like a healthy manifesto for dating — until you throw in the part that you’ve been sleeping with him for years and now want something more. That makes the prognosis much more dire. He’s not giving you much to work with here, and he didn’t seem capable of — or interested in —actually being in a relationship even when he was pretending to be in one with someone else. I think the calculus on “wasting your time” is pretty clear. It’s time to cut your losses and learn a bit more about what you’re really looking for.

“I’ve been athletic my whole life yet I’ve never been able to lose the tire of fat around my lower back and waist. I’ve tried just about every ab or lower back exercise in the book, but nothing ever seemed to work. I started working out with Tasha’s guidance. She put me on an eating plan and workout schedule that yielded noticeable results after the first week. I achieved more with Tasha in three short months than I ever achieved in all the years I worked out alone.”

Enter the Home Stretch If Teddy Roosevelt were alive today, chances are he’d be doing yoga. Maybe the famously fit president would even be revising his catchphrase to “Speak softly and carry a yoga mat.” That’s the slogan organizers have chosen for this year’s D.C. Yoga Week, which started Monday. The aim of the event, which features free and $5 classes across the region, is to heighten the city’s awareness of yoga and its health

beneﬁts. And no one needs to wield a big stick to see results. Now in its eighth year, D.C. Yoga Week (Dccy.org) continues to grow, with nearly 40 local studios participating. Each of them will have a representative at Sunday’s Yoga on the Mall (11 a.m.-1 p.m.), held in Constitution Gardens near the Vietnam Memorial. The representatives will participate in a free, outdoor class — led by local instructors John Schumacher, Patty Ivey, Kevin Waldorf-Cruz and Greg Marzullo — and will demonstrate their different styles by practicing together. That group session will mark the
Everyone’s invited to roll out their mats on the grass at Yoga on the Mall.
Lululemon’s Yoga in the Park returns at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Dupont Circle. Keep tabs on who’s leading the outdoor classes (scheduled for every week through September) at the Logan Circle store’s Facebook page. There’s a style for everyone this summer at the Athleta store in Georgetown (3229 M St. NW). Let Your Yoga Dance, a Friday series starting at noon May 10, is a celebration of movement and music. The following week, folks can try two styles of
vinyasa flow and sample a gentle, restorative class. Get the full calendar at Stores.athleta.net/store-4788. Yoga is just one of the fitness offerings starting up for the season in Crystal City (Crystalcity.org) this week. The 7 a.m. classes, hosted by Mind Your Body Oasis, are held every Monday through September in the Crystal City Water Park across from 1750 Crystal Drive. Beginning May 7, you can wind down at 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at National Harbor (Nationalharbor .com). The evening classes on the east pier platform, led by instructors from Sun & Moon Yoga Studio, will have live musical accompaniment. Saturday morning classes with Cathy Valentine begin at 9 a.m. May 11. Both programs will go through the end of October.
WEEK 5: SETBACKS Setbacks occur in many forms. Sometimes we’re not losing as much weight as we expected. Sometimes we’ve gained a pound or two back. Sometimes we just can’t ﬁt a workout into our busy schedule. So what should you do when faced with a setback on your personal ﬁtness journey?
What are some common setbacks that people face when trying to lose weight?
What kinds of setbacks have you faced so far?
Gold’s Gym Location: Ballston
Gold’s Gym Location: Ballston
Some of the most common setbacks I’ve seen include medical limitations, injuries that prevent people from working out and a lack of results. Other factors that can lead to setbacks are not making enough time in your schedule to work out and long periods of unhealthy eating.
How do you recommend people remain undefeated by any setbacks they may face? People should stay focused on the goals they’ve set for themselves. Sometimes you have to make smaller goals and not always look at the biggest picture. It’s also important to stay positive and optimistic—no matter what happens. No setback should be too extreme when it comes to reaching your ﬁtness goals. A setback should simply let you know that you have to go back to the drawing board and reformulate a better plan to get what you’re working for.

So far, it’s been a lack of patience and unrealistic expectations. I tend to be really hard on myself and it’s sometimes difficult to understand this transformation won’t happen overnight. I’ve also had to realize that everyone’s body responds differently to the process. That’s why Chauncey always reminds me to focus on my goals instead of my expectations. By developing more patience, remaining consistent and trusting the process, success is sure to come!
How are you overcoming your setbacks? I focus on the positive things that have happened to me so far, including a 20-point reduction in my blood pressure and a 200-point reduction in my blood glucose levels! Also, my support group is awesome; my family, friends and coworkers are behind me 100% and refuse to let me give up. And Chauncey is the greatest cheerleader of all. I couldn’t have asked for a better team in my corner. My new motto: “Slow and steady wins the race!”

A D.C. Sound Matures
Kill Yr. Idols Sonic Youth was born in 1981, three years after I was. We did not grow up together, however: While I was learning to walk and read, they were recording album after album of droneand-pedal-effects-laden insanity that changed that course of indie music. I discovered them as a teen with 1992’s “Goo.” One song by Kim Gordon — bassist, guttural vocalist, a woman who commanded respect as a By Shauna musician — and I was Miller mesmerized. She was married to bandmate/guitar wizard Thurston Moore. (They’re above, center.) They created a beautiful, romantic madness together. I bought every record. I wanted them to adopt me. Then, they (and the band) split up in 2011. After 27 years of marriage, my punk-rock parents were getting a divorce! Did anyone stand a chance? In an Elle story out last week, Gordon said the split was because of an affair Moore had. She found out about it through a wayward text. “We seemed to have a normal relationship inside of a crazy world,” Gordon told Elle. “And … it ended in a kind of normal way.” I’m an adult, and I know what it’s like to colossally screw something up. But I’m still having a hard time seeing them as mortal. Connect with Shauna and Sound Bets on Twitter: @Shaunajmiller
Moombahton, the District’s homegrown electronic dance genre, goes Hollywood
Birth of a Genre Dave Nada’s creation was dance music for the decentralized Internet era, a hybrid of a hybrid. Within Washington, moombahton was embraced by a nascent dance-music scene. U Street Music Hall opened in March 2010 and emerged as a home base, hosting packed monthly Moombahton Massives. (A big bash — Moombahton Massive Day — will take over the 9:30 Club in June.) For the first time, D.C. had produced a viral electronic music genre of its own. (T WP)
Music On the roof of the W Hotel in Los Angeles, Dave Nada, the Maharishi of moombahton, serves up pulverizing beats that sound like what a robot would listen to after dropping Ecstasy on a tropical vacation. But the patrons are actually male models downing Patron and buxom girls clutching champagne ﬂutes. The bottle service brigade probably can’t explain what they’re listening to, but their shoulders shake, jiggle and bounce at 108 beats per minute. That is the speed of moombahton. It’s not as fast as most electronic music, the result of Nada slowing down a Dutch house track called “Moombah” and combining it with the Caribbean strains of reggaeton. These new rhythms quickly found an audience, as Nada discovered the nexus between up-tempo oontz oontz oontz and tropical grooves. His “eureka” moment happened in November 2009 in Washington, where moombahton incubated as an underground phenomenon. But the lure of Los Angeles and its interconnected electronic music scene became too hard to resist, and recently moombahton’s hub relocated to the other side of the country. “A lot of people initially wrote off moombahton because they said it was some dumb fad on [streaming music site] Soundcloud,” says Nada,

34. “But when you heard it in the club properly, it knocked.” For Nada, who was raised in Prince George’s County, moving to L.A. yielded immediate dividends. In 2011, Nadastrom — Nada’s collaborative project with producer Matt Nordstrom — toured with Skrillex, and Nada curated a compilation for Diplo’s Mad Decent label. “What happens in the next year will probably determine whether moombahton can turn into something ﬂexible enough to be a timeless tradition, or merely remain a local legacy,” says Jesse Tittsworth, co-owner of U Street Music Hall. “The most important thing is that its fans are open to new versions of it.” JEFF WEISS (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Pass the Pen: The surviving members of the Beastie Boys are writing a book together, The New York Times reports. Michael Diamond (Mike D, right) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock, left) have a deal with Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau for a book celebrating their legacy. It will be a loosely structured oral history that features other writers and a visual element. The book, currently untitled, will be published in the fall of 2015. (E XPRESS)

An Embraceable Outlaw Willie Nelson remains a symbol of American independence as the country icon turns 80
Willie Nelson turns 80 this week. According to him, his birthday was April 29. The state of Texas, however, claims it is April 30.
U.K. Studio Plants U.S. Roots in Ga. Film
America loves its outlaws, but few are as admired and lionized as Willie Nelson. With the country singer celebrating his 80th birthday this year, Nelson has been honored with lifetime achievement awards, serenaded at special performances and saluted by musicians from every genre of music. And Nelson has taken it all in with a bemused smile. “It’s a nice thing to do for someone on their birthday and I appreciate it,” Nelson says. “Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible.” The hubbub has been as much about celebrating Nelson as it has been celebrating with Nelson. The singer, whose birthday was Monday or is today — Nelson says April 29, the state of Texas claims April 30 — occupies a unique space in America’s cultural memory. A walking bag of contradictions, he wears his hair long in braids and has a penchant for pot smoking, yet he remains conservative country music’s greatest songwriter. He’s
On the Bus With Willie Willie Nelson is most at home as he sits at the pleasantly cluttered kitchen table of his bus. With its portrait of an American Indian on the side and its reputation for mellow encounters, the bus is as much a part of Nelson’s mythos as his braids and battered old guitar. “I’ve lived in this house longer than I’ve lived in any of the others, all combined,” Nelson says. (AP)
accepted by left and right, black and white and is instantly recognizable to a majority of Americans. His image has grown to rep-
resent more than the notes he’s played or the lyrics he’s written. Like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash or Frank Sinatra, he’s become a ﬁgure-
head for a uniquely American way of thinking. He represents the outlaw and the maverick. If Elvis was all about the pelvis and the sexual revolution, Nelson is American independence: the raised middle ﬁnger tossed with a twinkle in the eye. “America is a bizarre place and Willie is our captain,” says musician Jamey Johnson, Nelson’s good friend and sometimes opener. “Willie in every way represents all the greatest things about America to me.” CHRIS TALBOT T (AP)
Today’s Top Stops
The British film studio home to the James Bond franchise announced plans Monday for its first U.S. movie production facility at a site near Atlanta. The large-scale ﬁlm complex (an artist’s rendering of which is above) will be called Pinewood Atlanta. Plans call for the studio to be developed on 288 acres south of Atlanta in Fayette County and include at least ﬁve soundstages as well as production ofﬁces. The Pinewood project is a major coup for Georgia and opens the state to more big-budget ﬁlms. Recent ﬁlms shot at Pinewood Studios, based outside of London, include the upcoming Angelina Jolie ﬁlm “Maleﬁcent” and “Jack Ryan,” directed by Kenneth Branagh. (AP)

Her conviction was later overturned by an Italian court. Knox ﬁnally breaks her silence tonight in an hourlong interview with Diane Sawyer on “20/20.” For those who can’t get enough, there’s also “Amanda Knox: The Untold Story” on Investigation Discovery (6 p.m.).

“Just saw my first pair of Google Glasses in the wild. Here it comes.” — @WILLIAMFLEITCH expects
to soon see far more people wearing the new interactive eyewear.
“Face it, folks, Bay is one of the most reliable box office filmmakers in Hollywood, and he’s going to keep making movies for the foreseeable future.” — ADAM B. VARY AT BUZZFEED.COM
points out that “Pain & Gain” director Michael Bay “has had exactly one ﬂop on his résumé: 2005’s dark sci-ﬁ thriller ‘The Island,’ which opened in fourth place.”
“Dear Anna-Megan Raley — always a bridesmaid never a bride, huh?! Also, comments like yours are why women are starving themselves to be thin.” — @BEDABBLER reacts to the revelation that Raley — a blogger for Houston.CBSlocal.com who wrote a piece saying that one of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s cheerleaders was “too chunky” to cheer — once tried out to be a Houston Dynamo cheerleader and didn’t make the team. The post has since been deleted.
“Oil changes are a necessary expense, but at $25-$30 for each oil change, why double or even triple your costs by following the repair shop’s directives and not your vehicle manufacturer’s?” — DANIEL PACKER AT SWEATINGTHEBIG STUFF.COM explains that changing
your oil every 3,000 miles is one of the “5 crazy ways people waste money.” Most vehicles, he says, require a change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
“#MadMen fans are gonna be pissed when they find out it’s just a prequel to ‘That 70s Show.’ ” — @EXJON has a funny mock spoiler alert for fans of the AMC show, now in its sixth season, starring Jon Hamm.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You can show someone close to you what you’re really about today, and in the end, you’ll be much closer — but is it too close? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You cannot claim to know what someone else is doing, or why — but you can combat his or her encroachment with a dedication that is all your own. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be surprised to learn that someone special has been looking out for you for quite some time. Today you can think things over. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Read between the lines today and you’ll learn an important lesson that can hold you in good stead throughout a trying time to come. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A new idea comes your way today, and though you may not be able to take credit for it, you can surely make it work well for you.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Taking things one step at a time may be the sensible thing to do, but you’re not feeling all that sensible right now! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You may have to make someone else wait until you are truly ready before he or she can count on your own personal contribution.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You won’t be able to use that old excuse today. You must be willing to do all you can.
Today: Occasional rain and drizzle today and tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may consider it a mistake to follow your instincts today, but it’s not — though it may complicate matters. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll have to stick with what happens to you today. Trust that everything will turn out all right if you stay the course. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re getting things all wrong at this time, and it would behoove you to get to the bottom of a situation that you are misreading. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have good cause to brag, but you’ll want to keep your opinions of yourself to yourself — at least until you are among friends.
