Report Warns of Warming Effect Federal report says U.S. climate change already affects us

A Broad Effect: The graphic below shows the difference in average temperature from 1991-2012 compared to 1901-1960 in the continental U.S., and to the 1951-1980 averages for Alaska and Hawaii. Almost the entire country has gotten warmer since 1990, and many places have increased by more than 1.5 degrees.

“It’s a good-news story about the many opportunities to take cost-effective actions to reduce the damage.”

Washington Global warming is rapidly turning America the beautiful into America the stormy, sneezy and dangerous, according to a new federal scientific report. And those shining seas? Rising and costly, the report says. Climate change’s assorted harms “are expected to become increasingly disruptive across the nation throughout this century and beyond,” the National Climate Assessment concluded Tuesday. The report emphasizes that warming and all-too-wild weather are changing daily lives, using the phrase “climate disruption” as another way of saying global warming. Still, it’s not too late to prevent the worst of climate change, says the 840-page report, which the White House is highlighting as it tries to jump-start often-stalled efforts to curb heat-trapping gases.

Monica Lewinsky Breaks Her Silence Monica Lewinsky, the intern with whom then-President Bill Clinton had an affair, has written a side of the story she’s kept quiet for more than 15 years. Here are some highlights of the Vanity Fair article, available online Thursday. EMILY HEIL (THE WASHINGTON POST/E XPRESS) HER REGRETS

Lewinsky confesses she had “suicidal temptations” during the media firestorm surrounding the affair. Her mother stayed by her bed, fearing she would take her life.

Lewinsky says she’s still recognized daily. She asks that Beyonce correct the lyrics of her hit “Partition”: “If we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’ ”

“The buzz in some circles has been that the Clintons must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? … nothing could be further from the truth.”

out water service because of a pipe rupture caused by the landslide, and were not easily reachable because of

the collapse in the roadway. “No one imagined it would slip this much,” said Debbie Kutzleb, who lives on the side of Piscataway Drive that is least affected by the earth shifting. She was one of three residents who showed up at an information center Tuesday. The Red Cross had sandwiches, water and chips available for displaced residents, but Kutzleb wanted information. County officials were not at the center late Tuesday morning to give any answers. In interviews with The Washington Post, the officials said they do not know when residents will be allowed to return to their homes. ARELIS R .

Where’s My Wi-Fi?

There may soon be an Outernet, which would use satellites to broadcast a library of content to the entire planet for free via the unlicensed spectrum of radio waves, starting as early as June 2015. It wouldn’t replicate the Internet’s limitless browsing experience, but it could be the next big step toward unified planetary connectivity. As with most plans involving global domination, the ambitions are grand and as yet unrealized. A dozen transponders (already in orbit) could link humanity to 500 gigabytes of new data per day,

We depend on the Internet, but free, universal access has yet to arrive

600 MIKE BYERS (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

The future announces itself in magenta and margarita green. “Free Outdoor Wi-Fi,” declare the placards shellacked to the sidewalks of First Street NE. NoMa claimed last month that it’s the first D.C. neighborhood to connect to free Internet, and maybe it is, if you’re particular about the definitions of “first” and “neighborhood.” But the livelier point of contention is this: Why, more than a decade into the proliferation of Wi-Fi networks, is free wireless Internet not available everywhere all the time, especially in the capital of the free world? Why must we set up our own individual hotspots, or linger in coffee shops, or siphon connectivity from unsecured networks, or make do with our phones? Why in 2014 is a neighborhood stoked to offer a service that for some has become as elemental as clean air, as sacrosanct as a universal human right? “The technology really wasn’t ready until now,” says Harold Feld, senior vice president of Public Knowledge, a D.C.-based consumer advocacy group dedicated to an open and accessible Internet. “Now people are ready for it, you’ve got an infrastructure that can support it, you’ve got institutions like libraries that are embedded in the community — now we need to put all the pieces together.” You could blame government inertia and — brace yourself for jargon — the limited availability of unlicensed radio spectrum frequencies, the bands of airwaves that are open for use by anybody.

Another problem: The market relies on consumers to purchase connectivity individually. In other words, blame AT&T or Verizon, if you’re willing to also blame capitalism as a whole. “Whenever I think about putting in a new Wi-Fi hotspot, I want to look at the level of service and whether industry can do it,” says D.C.’s chief technology officer, Rob Mancini. This reliance on industry sometimes can result in “a learned helplessness” in city governments, says Greta Byrum, an urban planner and senior field analyst for the Open Technology Institute. “There’s definitely interests that don’t want to see any kind of diversification of the market or new models at play,” Byrum says. “Local communities have the power to create their own infrastructure, but a lot of people think they don’t know how or that it might be illegal. It’s difficult to do an infrastructure DIY project.” Consider the effort to wire NoMa, a project that took more than a year of planning and designing. The neighborhood’s Internet couldn’t happen without access points — 17 gray, foot-wide boxes that are perched on streetlights or on top of buildings — and the gathering of permits,

Dialing In New York City is looking to relics of the past in its bid to usher in the future. Mayor Bill de Blasio called for proposals last week to transform phone booths into Wi-Fi hotspots, TIME reported. “By using a historic part of New York’s street fabric, we can significantly enhance public availability of increasingly-vital broadband access,” de Blasio said of the plan, which Michael Bloomberg began as a pilot project in 2012 .

the routing of electricity and so on. “To be able to put devices on lampposts took a good bit of conversation about attaching them and how they look and whether they affected the performance of

Looking to the Skies Despite the griping about the patchwork availability of free and public Wi-Fi in wealthy parts of the District, it is still worlds away from the 20 percent of Americans who don’t have household broadband or a smartphone, from the two-thirds of the global population that doesn’t have any reliable access to the Web and from nations that restrict or disconnect their population from the Internet.

says Outernet founder Syed Karim, director of innovation at the nonprofit Media Investment Development Fund, which is backing the projects. Open-source material, Creative Commons content, the literature and courseware in the public domain — would all be broadcast to Earth via satellites and intermediary hotspots. “We’re building a library for everyone, and removing the physical nature of what a library has to do, for about $15 million a year,” Karim says. “If information is the currency of the modern global economy, Outernet is a free ATM.” The next step? A “space-based, jurisdictionfree, regulation-proof laser Internet system,” he says. Shellac that in magenta on the moon. DAN ZAK (THE WASHINGTON POST)

But Internet connectivity may soon come from orbit, beyond the reach of municipal governments, industry incumbents and authoritarian countries. Last month, Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook’s plan to beam the Internet through lasers, satellites and drones to swaths of the planet that are not already covered by 2G or 3G networks. Google’s Project Loon will do the same thing but with high-altitude balloons, perhaps by 2020. (TWP)

Gooden Answers the Call SUE OGROCKI (AP)

32-year-old has gone from unwanted vet to playoff cog in 2014

Kevin Durant averaged an NBA-leading 32 points per game this season.

Wizards In the back of his mind, Drew Gooden had to wonder if those Bikram yoga sessions, individual workouts and handful of pickup games with NBA wannabes would wind up being in vain. Gooden had to hold on to the hope that eventually some team wouldn’t let him remain in unintentional retirement and give him a call after the Milwaukee Bucks flicked him away like loose lint.

Durant Wins His First MVP NBA

ANDY LYONS (GETTY IMAGES)

7 P.M. | TNT Today EAST SEMIS

If he ever experienced doubt, Gooden could always lean on the story of former NBA player Tim Thomas, who was discarded by the Chicago Bulls in 2006, buried and forgotten, until he re-emerged as an unlikely hero during the Phoenix Suns’ Amare Stoudemire-less run to the Western Conference finals. “I used that as motivation that it can be done,” Gooden said. The Wizards took a chance on Gooden, a seasoned veteran with NBA Finals experience, in late February and he helped the team withstand the absence of Nene when he went down with a sprained left knee. When Nene returned, Gooden watched his playing time diminish significantly. In the first round against the Chicago Bulls, Gooden received more than five minutes just once and sat the entire Game 5

clincher because of a coach’s decision. Trevor Booker hogged most of the backup big man minutes against Chicago but when he struggled to summon his usual energy in the first half of Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers, coach Randy Wittman went back to Gooden when Nene picked up his fourth foul early in the third quarter of the Wizards’ 102-96 victory. “Thanks to him, obviously, we got this win,” said Marcin Gortat, crediting Gooden for the Wizards’ dominance on the boards. “It was all about Drew Gooden. He was just outstanding. I guess they just underestimated this guy and, you

It’s Been a Long Time Coming Before Monday’s win over the Pacers, the Wizards hadn’t won a second-round game since April 28, 1982. On that date … The No. 1 song in the U.S. was “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The top movie was “Porky’s.” Eight of the 10 Wizards who played Monday were not born yet. Frank Johnson and Spencer Haywood each had a team-high 26 points in a 103-102 Bullets win over the Larry Bird-led Celtics. (E XPRESS)

know, he brought it.” One of just three Wizards born before Washington last won a second-round playoff game in 1982, the 32-year-old Gooden became the first player in the shot clock era to have at least 12 points and 13 rebounds in just 18 minutes of action. Gooden, who reached the Finals with Cleveland in 2007, didn’t want to get ahead of himself after the Wizards’ front line got the best of Indiana’s in Game 1 (outrebounding the Pacers 53-36). “You know what, it was our night, but we’ll see what happens in the second game,” Gooden said. MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

More Barkley Love: Charles Barkley was one of the first national analysts entrenched on the Wizards’ bandwagon. He said they were the third-best team in the East in early February. Then, he was the rare pundit who picked the Wizards over the Bulls in the first round. So what’s next for Barkley? “The Wizards are gonna be in the Eastern Conference finals,” he said at halftime of Monday night’s Western Conference game. “Guaranteed.” On TNT’s postgame show, Barkley continued: “This team, they’re loaded. In the first round of the playoffs they had a different leading scorer in every [win]? That’s remarkable.” (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them. The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, grabbing 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the previous five, finished second with six first-place votes and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third. Durant won his fourth scoring crown in five years this season by averaging 32 points per game. He helped the Thunder finish the regular season with a 59-23 record, second-best in the league, despite playing much of the season without three-time All-Star Russell Westbrook by his side because of a nagging knee injury. Durant’s run of 41 consecutive games this season with at least 25 points was the third-longest streak in NBA history. CLIFF BRUNT (AP)

TV Lineup NBA (9:30 P.M., TNT) In Game 1, Chris Paul hit eight 3-pointers on his way to 32 points to lead Los Angeles to a 1-0 series lead over the Thunder. How will Kevin Durant and Co. respond tonight at home?

The NBA says Los Angeles Clippers President Andy Roeser is taking an indefinite leave of absence as the franchise tries to stabilize following owner Donald Sterling’s ban. The league announced last week that it was working with the Clippers to appoint a new

CEO. NBA spokesman Mike Bass says in a statement Tuesday that Roeser’s leave of absence, which begins immediately, “will provide an opportunity for a new CEO to begin on a clean slate and for the team to stabilize under difficult circumstances.” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and

urged owners to force him to sell the Clippers for racist remarks he made. Roeser is one of the league’s longest-tenured executives, having just completed his 30th season with the team. The Clippers lead Oklahoma City 1-0 in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals. (AP)

Clippers President Taking Leave of Absence

Coach Mark Jackson led the Warriors to the playoffs in 2013 and 2014.

Warriors Fire Coach Jackson NBA The Golden State Warriors fired Mark Jackson on Tuesday, ending the franchise’s most successful coaching tenure in the past two decades but also one filled with drama and distractions. Jackson’s three seasons with the Warriors will be remembered for the way he helped turn a perennially losing franchise into a consistent winner and the bold and bombastic way in which he did it. He guaranteed Golden State would make the playoffs in his first season, when they finished 23-36 after the NBA labor lockout. The Warriors went 47-35 last season and had a memorable run to the second round of the playoffs, and they were 51-31 this season before losing to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. The Warriors had not made the playoffs in consecutive years since the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons. They had made the postseason once in 17 years before Jackson arrived. ANTONIO GONZ ALEZ (AP)

Sports Redskins GM says they are unlikely to trade up in the draft Redskins The Redskins’ annual predraft news conference is an exercise in saying a lot without saying anything, so it helps to be entertaining. “We’re going to do our best job not to lie to anybody today,” general manager Bruce Allen told the gathering Tuesday. “If we mislead 31 other teams, then it’s successful.” Allen, of course, didn’t declare the Redskins’ plans for the draft, but he did drop a few hints. Wash-

ington has only six picks, starting with the second selection of the second round, and Allen said “in theory” he would prefer to trade down and collect more picks, depending on how the board shakes out. “If we have a player that has a first-round grade that falls to us, it’ll make us less likely to trade out of there,” Allen said. Allen added that it’s unlikely he will trade up into the first round. Perhaps the GM’s most interesting remark reflected his confidence in the players he already has. The Redskins did add some notable free agents — three-time Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson tops the list — but they are coming off

Allen: ‘There’s No Gaping Holes’

General manager Bruce Allen and the Redskins lack a 2014 first-round pick.

a last-place season and are starting over coach-wise after replacing Mike Shanahan with Jay Gruden. “We’ve been active in free agency, so we feel there’s no gaping holes

on the roster,” Allen said. Still, there’s little debate that the Redskins could use some more help along the offensive line, at linebacker and safety, and perhaps need to pick a solid pass-rushing defensive lineman. Allen said he’ll stick with the standard NFL philosophy of taking the best player available regardless of position, but there’s some leeway: If two or more players are rated the same, then position of need is often the tiebreaker. The Redskins lack a first-round pick because it was one of three they dealt to the Rams two years ago as part of the package that allowed them to move into place to take Robert Griffin III.

Pop’s Own Worst Critic

Humor With Heart I’ve always thought that the real Amy Schumer would be just like the one the comedian has created on stage and TV: brash, crass and a little mean. Her stand-up persona and the characters on her sketch show, “Inside Amy Schumer,” are so distinctive, it’s hard for me to see Schumer as a normal person, someone with fears and feelings, just like anyone else. It was, at least, until she gave a speech last week at the Gloria By Rudi Awards (the transcript Greenberg went viral on vulture .com). In a thoughtful, moving talk about self-confidence, Schumer, 32, recounts how she struggled with her body image in college, until a disastrous one-night stand made her snap out of it. She left that encounter “grateful for being introduced to my new self, a girl who got her value from within her.” The speech is the kind of relatable, personal moment that humanizes a comedian, like Stephen Colbert eulogizing his mother on-air, or Tig Notaro revealing to an audience that she has cancer. Now I know the real person inside Amy Schumer. “Inside Amy Schumer” airs at 10:30 p.m. Tuesdays on Comedy Central. Tickets are on sale for her Oct. 3 show at Baltimore’s Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric.

With ‘Sheezus,’ singer Lily Allen proves she’s not afraid to take shots at her own genre Album Review Before it was released, British pop singer Lily Allen’s first album in five years, “Sheezus,” had been the subject of several controversies. One involved the song “Insincerely Yours,” which lobbed insults at harmless British models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, and singer Rita Ora. “I don’t give a f--- about Delevingne/ Or that Rita girl/ About Jourdan Dunn,” Allen trilled pleasantly. “I don’t give a f--- about your Instagram/ About your lovely house or your ugly kids.” “Insincerely Yours” is a low point on “Sheezus,” which is otherwise a tar pit of thinly veiled insults, songs that evoke Vampire Weekend and the kind of pointed pop-cultural criticism that has long been Allen’s stock in trade. Allen is a modestly regarded musician and a world-class observer of modern culture and its discontents. When she retreated into semiretirement, she was one of a handful of artists making pop music about pop music. She has re-emerged into a world where such self-examination is commonplace, characterized by Lady Gaga’s musings on the nature of stardom, Kreayshawn’s skewering of conspicuous consumption and Kesha’s winking party rap. Allen name checks Lorde on her

Lily Allen lashes out at her pop peers in her latest album, “Sheezus.”

“I’m sick of explaining my lyrics to people, they’re pop songs, no more, no less. If you don’t get it or like it, look the other way. Simples” — LILY A LLEN, CALLING OUT HER HATERS IN A TWEET ON MAY 1

album’s sing-song title track. Rihanna, Katy Perry and Beyonce also are mentioned, all rivals whom she must vanquish. It’s of a piece with the album’s first single, “Hard Out Here,” another examination of the unreasonable expectations placed on female pop singers. In the accompanying video, Allen’s barely clad black backup dancers twerk and pour champagne on each other’s backsides in slow motion. It was an insincere finger wag that objectifies video girls to demonstrate how wrong it is to objectify video girls. It deserved every bit of criticism it got. “Sheezus” works best when it’s personal, when it plumbs the conflict between work and family. A sometimes uneasy ode to domesticity (“Staying home with you is better than sticking things up my nose,” Allen tells her husband), it’s also the most affecting pop album out now about marriage and new parenthood. ALLISON STEWART (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Spring Break Really Is Forever: Production company Wild Bunch has announced plans to make a sequel to 2013’s “Spring Breakers,” which starred Selena Gomez, left. Screen Daily reports “Spring Breakers: The Second Coming” will focus on coeds who come up against a militant Christian group that tries to convert them. Wild Bunch co-chief Vincent Maraval says the film will feature a mix of old and new cast members. (E XPRESS)

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) What you are trying to accomplish may not be as easy as “one-two-three,” but it is not much more complicated than that! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may be misinterpreting someone else’s attempts to reconnect with you. You’ll want to put yourself in his or her shoes for a moment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may be welcome to express yourself any way you see fit, but then again, you may not. Assess the situation with care. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your dedication to a certain ideal will serve you well throughout the day — though tension may arise between you and a rival as a result. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Someone you can usually count on for support may not be there for you today. Find out if this is an ideological problem.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) How you approach someone in authority will make all the difference. You can submit to the rules without being submissive.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) It’s time for you to answer a call of sorts, but you can do so in your own way, and according to your own personal schedule.
