Study: Passengers Raise Teen-Driver Death Risks
A study released Tuesday quantifies for the first time in a decade how teenagers’ risk of a fatal crash multiplies when they have other teens in the car. It increases by almost half when a 16- or 17-yearold driver has one teenage passenger; it doubles with two teen passengers; and it quadruples with three or more young passengers.

Obama: Congress Has ‘To Do’ List President proposes economic initiatives to spur job creation Albany, N.Y. President Obama said Tuesday that only Congress can take the “bold action” needed to spur job creation, as he unfurled an election year “to do” list for lawmakers. Obama’s action plan for Congress centers on a series of economic initiatives he has already been pushing for months, including eliminating tax incentives for companies that ship jobs overseas and promoting new tax credits for small businesses and for companies to develop clean energy. None of the items on the president’s wish list has previously gained any traction in Congress, and there was little indication that they would in the six months between now and Election Day. Speaking at a college science complex in Albany, N.Y., Obama said Congress should not use the election as reason to block his proposals. Republicans said they had a

TUESDAY ON HOW CONGRESS NEEDS TO TAKE ACTION ON A SERIES OF INITIATIVES AIMED AT HELPING THE ECONOMY.
Student Loan Plan Fails in the Senate Senate Republicans derailed a Democratic bill on Tuesday that would keep interest rates on federal college loans from doubling July 1 in an electionyear battle aimed at the hearts — and votes — of millions of students and their parents. Republicans said they favor preventing the interest rate increase but blocked the Senate from debating the $6 billion measure because they oppose how Democrats would pay for it: boosting Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes. GOP senators want a vote on their own version paid for by eliminating a preventive health fund created by President Obama’s 2010 health care overhaul. That financing idea has no chance of passing the Democratic-run Senate. (AP)
President Obama’s “to do” list for Congress also includes legislation creating a Veterans Job Corps to help service members returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan find work as police officers and firefighters. And to address the housing crisis, Obama pressed anew for a measure designed to help homeowners refinance their homes at lower interest rates. (AP)
lengthy list of their own in the form of bills that have cleared the GOPled House but remained bogged down by Senate Democrats. “We’ve passed nearly 30 jobs bills to increase American competitiveness, expand domestic energy production and rein in the red tape that is burdening small businesses. Democrats are blocking every one of them,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. KEN THOMAS (AP)

The governor of Puerto Rico is trying to do what more than a century of American citizenship has failed to accomplish: teach Puerto Ricans to speak English as well as they do Spanish. Gov. Luis Fortuno, who has been mentioned as a possible Republican vice-presidential candidate, has proposed an ambitious, and what critics call far-fetched, plan to require all public schools to teach all courses in English while still offering Spanish grammar and literature classes. The U.S. territory has had a long and contentious relationship with the English language, and many Puerto Ricans are skeptical about embracing it, fearing they will lose a key part of their identi-

Washington Federal drug regulators on Tuesday affirmed landmark study results showing that a popular HIV-fighting pill can also help healthy people avoid contracting the virus that causes AIDS in the first place. While the pill appears safe and effective for prevention, scientists stressed that it only works when taken on a daily basis. The Food and Drug Administration will hold a meeting Thursday to discuss whether Truvada should be approved for people who are at risk of contracting HIV through sexual intercourse. The agency’s positive review posted Tuesday suggests the daily pill will become the first drug approved to prevent HIV

Rejecting austerity, left-wing leader tries for new coalition Athens, Greece The smoldering debate over European austerity flared hotter Tuesday as the left-wing politician trying to form a new Greek government declared that his country is no longer bound by its pledges to impose crippling cutbacks in return for rescue loans.

VOLUNTEER FOR MALARIA RESEARCH STUDIES In 2010, there were an estimated 216 million cases of malaria worldwide. Currently, there is no effective malaria vaccine. Healthy adults 18 to 45 years old are needed to participate in a malaria vaccine research study. This study tests if an experimental vaccine is safe and can prevent infection following exposure to the malaria parasite. If the vaccine does not prevent infection and volunteers develop malaria symptoms, they will receive immediate treatment which is curative. Study volunteers will be compensated for their participation, estimated to last between 12 and 52 weeks.

Greece has promised to pass new austerity measures worth $18.9 billion next month and to implement other swift reforms. These will promptly be reviewed by its creditors, who will then decide whether to release the next batch of bailout funds. To secure the bailouts, Athens took a hatchet to pensions, salaries, health care and pretty much everything else, while repeatedly raising taxes.

Israel Revamps Ruling Coalition Power-sharing deal staves off PM’s plan for early elections
Opportunity for Netanyahu Now backed by a parliamentary supermajority, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tremendous room to maneuver on Israel’s most pressing issues: peace with the Palestinians, possible war with Iran and a growing rift at home between religious and secular Jews. Talks with the Palestinians have been frozen throughout his three-year term due to disagreements over Jewish settlements. (AP)
Jerusalem Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled a revamped coalition government on Tuesday, forming a broad alliance with the chief opposition party that could free his hand to take bold action on peace with the Palestinians and decide whether to attack Iran. In a stunning reversal, Netanyahu called off plans to hold early parliamentary elections and struck an agreement with the rival Kadima Party. Netanyahu now presides over a coalition with 94 seats in the 120-member parliament.
“A broad national unity government is good for security, good for the economy, good for the people of Israel,” Netanyahu declared at a news conference with Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz, his new deputy prime minister. Netanyahu boasted of bringing “stability” to Israel’s volatile political system, where governments
rarely serve full terms. His coalition had been riven by divisions in recent weeks, leading him to pose the possibility of early elections. Israelis were stunned to wake up Tuesday to a new political reality, as Netanyahu and Mofaz pledged an unspecified reform of the political system and to protect the economy. (AP)

Still Secure U.S. travelers won’t soon have to take off their pants along with their shoes when they go through airport security, despite a recently foiled al-Qaeda plot to bring down an airliner with an undetectable underwear bomb. On Tuesday, a day after the plot became public, the Obama administration sought to reassure travelers that security at U.S. airports is as good as it has ever been. Security procedures remain unchanged so far, a reflection of both government confidence in its checks and recognition that it can’t realistically expect travelers to endure much more. In the meantime, Americans traveled Tuesday with little apparent concern. “We were nervous — for a minute,” said Nan Gartner, a retiree on her way to Italy from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport. “But then we thought, we aren’t going anywhere near Yemen, so we’re OK.” (ap)
Tipster Foiled Plot Informant acquired an al-Qaeda bomb for CIA, officials say Washington The CIA had al-Qaeda fooled from the beginning. Last month, U.S. intelligence learned that al-Qaeda’s Yemen bra nch hoped to launch a spectacular attack using a new, nearly undetectable bomb aboard an airliner bound for America, officials say. But the man the terrorists were counting on to carry out the attack was actually working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence, U.S. and Yemeni officials told the Associated Press on Tuesday. The dramatic sting operation thwarted the attack before it had a chance to succeed. It was the latest misfire for
al-Qaeda, which has repeatedly come close to detonating a bomb aboard an airliner. For the United States, it was a v ictor y t hat delivered the bomb intact to U.S. intelligence. Officials on Tuesday withheld certain details, including the location and status of the individual — described by one Middle Eastern official as a Saudi informant — who turned over the device.
The Saudi service played a particularly important role in penetrating al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen and recovering the explosive device, according to officials who described an elaborate espionage operation in which the CIA tracked the bomb’s movements for weeks and then killed suspected plotters in a drone strike after the device was seized. Comments by White House
counterterrorism adviser John Brennan and others made it clear that the involvement of the CIA and its partners went well beyond simply watching the bomb plot unfold. “We’re confident that neither the device nor the intended user of this device posed a threat to us,” Brennan said on ABC’s Good Morning America program. “We had the device in our control and
we were confident that it was not going to pose a threat to the American public.” The emerging details help to illuminate the evolving tactics being employed by both sides in what U.S. officials have come to regard as the most critical counterterrorism front. Of dozens of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula fighters with Saudi backgrounds, “at least five or eight of them are undercover” working for the Saudi service at any point in time, said a Middle Eastern official. CI A of f ic ia ls decl i ned to comment. (ap/ the washington post )
Suspected Bomb Mastermind: Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, 30, has built a reputation as al-Qaeda’s bomb-making savant one near-miss at time. Before those attempts, he staged an even more audacious attack: Turning his own brother into a suicide bomber in a mission that was later decried by the U.S. State Department for its “brutality, novelty and sophistication.” This appears to be the essence of al-Asiri’s plots as one of the leaders of al-Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen.
2006 Al-Asiri arrives in Yemen after being jailed by Saudi officials in crackdowns against Islamic militants.
2009 Al-Asiri was linked to a plot in August to strike at the Saudi intelligence services. His brother Abdullah posed as a militant wishing to surrender, but explosives were reportedly hidden in his rectum or held between his legs. But the resulting blast only injured its target, a top official.
2009 A bomb fails to detonate on a jet over Detroit on Christmas. Investigators later pulled al-Asiri’s fingerprint off the bomb hidden in the underwear of the suspect.
2011 Washington officially designates al-Asiri as a wanted terrorist in March, calling him the primary bomb-maker for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
2012 U.S. officials probe a device in a recent plot, believed to be the work of al-Asiri or a student. Officials on Tuesday said it was an upgrade of the 2009 underwear bomb, made without metal. (ap)

Former governors both get 46 percent from registered voters Richmond, Va. The U.S. Senate race in Virginia is deadlocked six months before Election Day, a new Washington Post poll shows, cementing the contest’s status among the most competitive in the country. Former Governors George Allen, a Republican, and Timothy M. Kaine, a Democrat, are tied at 46 percent apiece among registered voters in the race to succeed retiring Sen. James Webb, a Dem-
ocrat, exactly the same place they stood in the Post poll taken a year ago. Both parties believe Virginia will be a key determinant of which side controls the Senate come January. In the 13 months since Kaine entered the race, the two campaigns have combined to raise and spend millions of dollars, outside groups have poured cash into television ads and Allen has reinforced his position as the Republican front-runner against a handful of challengers. Yet none of those developments has budged the basic narrative — two titans of Virginia politics battling to a draw in a state widely viewed as swing terri-
tory, both in the Senate and presidential contests. Kaine, who served as President Obama’s handpicked Democratic National Committee chairman, might benefit from the fact that Obama holds a seven-point lead over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a Republican, in Virginia and will drive

Yet the new poll includes some negative trends for Kaine: Registered voters are now equally divided in their impression of him, with 41 percent apiece viewing the Democrat favorably and unfavorably. A year ago, Kaine’s rating was 2-to-1 positive, at 57-28. Kaine’s decline could be the partial result of negative ads that have aired against him in the state, and efforts by Republicans to tie him to health-care reform, the stimulus package and other controversial Obama administration policies.

Budget Vote Set for Thursday Finance committee to decide on approval for capital expenses
Metro’s f inance committee is expected to vote Thursday on whether to approve the transit agency’s fiscal 2013 budget of $2.5 billion in capital and operating expenses. The move comes two weeks after Metro approved an acrossthe-board fare hike for rail and bus riders, and drivers who park in its facilities.
Part of Metro’s capital budget goes to fixing its escalators and elevators.
The new rates go into effect July 1. The increase for rail passengers averages about 5 percent, although the actual amounts would vary greatly depending on distance. Bus fares increase by a dime for those who use SmarTrip cards, rising to $1.60. To fill its $103 million budget gap, Metro also asked area jurisdictions to contribute more in their subsidies. Virginia, Maryland and the District are expected to give another $47.1 million more this year compared with last year, bringing their subsidies to $669.1 million. Metro’s capital budget includes
installing event recorders on the 1000 and 4000 series rail cars, replacing track circuits on the Red Line and rehabbing, replacing escalators, elevators and 12 miles of rail on the system.
Metro’s fiscal 2013 budget in capital and operating expenses, officials say. The agency has a $103M budget gap.
T he bi g ge s t e x p e n s e f or Metro for fiscal 2013 is its $892 million in labor and pension costs for its 11,000 employees. DANA HEDGPETH (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Metro said Monday that it has determined that “mechanical fatigue” on the friction rings, above, of two of its older rail cars caused one ring to crack and another to fall off earlier this year. The rings are similar to a brake disc found on a car, and if a ring fails, it is considered a hazard. The findings are expected to be presented Thursday to Metro’s board.

Sports Bad Memories
The Caps’ loss on Monday was painful, but was it the worst ever? Here are some other contenders:
Moment of Truth Nears for Caps
The team and its fans believe this group can reach the Stanley Cup ﬁnals. That’s what makes Monday’s 3-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 5 so stinging. Losing a lead with 6.6 seconds left in regulation — and then the game almost as soon as overtime started — is how the old Capitals played. One more loss and they’re out in the second round. Just like last year, despite the vast improvement. Washington has to defend its turf Wednesday to stay alive, and it may be protecting a new way of life, too. The team and its fans believe this group can reach the Stanley Cup finals. If the Caps don’t, will they lose their religion? Alex Ovechkin has been a team player with fewer minutes, but that may not continue without more postseason success. The grass is greener with this defensive system. Now, the Capitals have to go out and prove it. To reach Matt Swenson, e-mail email@example.com

BRUCE BENNETT/GETTY IMAGES
Anyone who’s watched the Capitals this postseason has noticed a transformation similar to a city slicker finding his calling on a farm. Late in a season in which much hope was lost, the Capitals bought into coach Dale Hunter’s defense-first system. The results are undeniable. Players thought to be soft are now putting their bodies in harm’s way to stop opponents’ shots By Matt from even reaching Swenson the net. Whereas close games almost inevitably went the other way, the Caps have shown they can win one-goal nail-biters, including their Game 7 victory over the Stanley Cup champion Bruins.
Alex Ovechkin didn’t have a shot on goal in Game 5 against the Rangers on Monday.
first time since 1997, when Wayne Gretzky was on the team. “We want to close it out and get this over with. It’s a lot easier said than done,” Rangers forward Brad Richards said. “We want to be as desperate as they are.” With No. 7-seeded Washington on the verge of taking control of the semifinal series Monday night, Richards tied Game 5 with less than 10 seconds left, and Marc Staal won it about 1½ minutes into overtime. “That’s something you can’t script. You keep moving forward,” Laich said.
“Good breaks, bad breaks. We just keep moving forward.” As much as there might be for the Capitals to lament about how things went awry — two-time NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin had zero shots on goal for only the second time in 49 career NHL playoff games; Washington lost the game’s last seven faceoffs; Joel Ward’s double-minor penalty gave the Rangers power plays at the end of regulation and the start of overtime — they want to do whatever it takes to forget all of it. “That stuff happens,” defenseman John Carlson said. “There’s no one to blame.” As it happens, the Capitals — who haven’t lost consecutive games since March 22-23 — have shown a capacity for moving on quickly, including after a triple-overtime loss to New York in Game 4 of the series. “We control our emotions a little better. I mean, even when we win, we’re not bouncing off the ceiling. It’s more of a business atmosphere,” Laich said. “I mean, we have a very good hockey team. We never get too high, never get too low. We stay pretty composed.” HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)
East quarterfinals vs. Pittsburgh, Game 4: The Caps jumped out to a 2-0 first-period lead, but the hated Penguins — playing most of the game without the ejected Mario Lemieux — forced overtime. Petr Nedved scored a powerplay goal at 19 minutes 16 seconds of the fourth overtime to give Pittsburgh a 3-2 win at 2:22 a.m., in what was then the third-longest game in NHL history.
Stanley Cup finals vs. Detroit, Game 2: Twice, the Caps led the host Red Wings by two goals, but Kris Draper scored with 4:36 left in overtime to give Detroit a 5-4 overtime win and a 2-0 series lead against the Caps in their only appearance in the Stanley Cup finals. Esa Tikkanen had a chance to all but seal the win midway through the third period, but he missed a shot at an open net.
East quarterfinals vs. Tampa Bay, Game 6: The Caps, looking for their first Stanley Cup playoff series win since 1998, won the first two games by a combined score of 9-3 before dropping three straight. In triple-overtime, Martin St. Louis scored Tampa’s second power-play OT goal of the series, giving the Lightning a 2-1 win and a 4-2 series victory. (T WP)

Reggie Watts doesn’t have a master plan. He has no plan. Period. When the 40-year-old walks onto a stage, he has nothing prepared beyond “Hello.” He may tell some jokes. He might speak in a British accent. He could improvise a song. Whatever is on Watts’ mind becomes Watts’ act. “It’s way more natural than to prepare something,” says Watts, who performs at the 9:30 Club on May 21. “If I prepared something, I’d be a lot more nervous. I’d be freaked out that I wouldn’t reBy Rudi member what I thought Greenberg I was supposed to do.” Even his latest special/album, “Reggie Watts: A Live in Central Park,” was filmed without a net. He says his mindset going in was: “If it sucks, well then, that’s my special.” The special, which airs on Comedy Central Friday at 1 a.m. and is out as a CD/DVD set May 15, captures the essence of Watts’ unique performances. There are heady comedic riffs (one on cellphone providers was inspired by the concert’s sponsor, AT&T) alongside fully improvised songs. It’s thrilling to watch but even more mind-blowing to think about. Watts could easily play the same songs or do the same jokes every night. Instead, he does what he does best: whatever comes to mind.

Maurice Sendak, above, with one of his “Wild Things” in 1985, changed how we thought about childhood through his books.
King of ‘The Wild Things’ Maurice Sendak, who died Tuesday, changed how we view childhood Obituary Maurice Sendak didn’t think of himself as a children’s author, but as an author who told the truth about childhood. “I like interesting people, and kids are really interesting people,” he explained to the Associated Press last fall. “And if you didn’t paint them in little blue, pink and yellow, it’s even more interesting.” Sendak, who died early Tuesday in
Danbury, Conn., at age 83, four days after suffering a stroke, revolutionized children’s books and how we think about childhood simply by leaving in what so many writers excluded. His kids misbehaved and didn’t regret it, and in their dreams and nightmares fled to the most unimaginable places. Monstrous creatures were devised from his studio, but none more frightening than the grownups in his stories or the cloud of the Holocaust that darkened his every page. Rarely was a man so uninterested in being loved or adored. Communities attempted to ban him, but his books sold millions of copies and his curmudgeon-
Colbert’s Tribute Sendak appeared on “The Colbert Report” in January and endorsed Stephen Colbert’s “I Am a Pole (And So Can You!),” a children’s story calculated to offend the master. Colbert’s book was published Tuesday. “His art gave us a fantastical but unromanticized reminder of what childhood truly felt like,” Colbert said in a statement. (AP)
“I like interesting people, and kids are really interesting people. And if you didn’t paint them in little blue, pink and yellow, it’s even more interesting.” Sendak’s other books, standard volumes in so many children’s bedrooms, included “Chicken Soup With Rice,” “One Was Johnny,” “Pierre,” “Outside Over There” and “Brundibar.” Sendak spoke often, endlessly, about death in recent years. He didn’t mind being old because the young were under so much pressure. But he missed his late siblings and his longtime companion, Eugene Glynn, who died in 2009. Work, not people, was his reason to carry on. “I want to be alone and work until the day my head hits the drawing table and I’m dead. Kaput,” he said last fall. “I don’t believe in heaven or hell or any of those things. I feel very much like I want to be with my brother and sister again. They’re nowhere. I know they’re nowhere and they don’t exist, but if nowhere means that’s where they are, that’s where I want to be.” HILLEL ITALIE (AP)

Fire up in Hangzhou Pyrotechnic artist Cai Guoqiang’s latest works reﬂect the beauty of West Lake in a series of gunpowder paintings made on 2,000 square meters of silk, Zhu Linyong reports.
PHOTOS PROVIDED TO CHINA DAILY
Cai Guoqiang prepares to light the fuse for his latest gunpowder painting, West Lake, at a platform ﬂoating on the West Lake, the most famous attraction in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
rainy afternoon on West Lake when artist Cai Guoqiang decided it was time to wrap up his four-day project — sketching the beauty of the lake. Then, at 4:30 pm on April 18, Cai lit an incense stick and bowed, before lighting the fuse for his latest gunpowder work, West Lake, which comprises two layers of huge silk sheets, laid on a ﬂoating platform in the center of the lake. Meanwhile, a group of assistants, volunteers and ﬁreﬁghters watched, while a small, unmanned aircraft hovered above, taking photos of the gunpowder painting process. Flames erupted and smoke rose from the bolt of silk laid over the basketball-court-sized platform. The result was like a traditional ink painting, mirroring the landscapes of the nearby Lei Feng and Baoshu
pagodas. Beneath the ﬁrst layer of the silk sheet, there was an identical one, which Cai says will create the visual effect of shadows when the works are exhibited. After he had ﬁnished, Cai made gunpowder sketches of West Lake on 2,000 square meters of silk. “The ﬁnal effects are what I desired. I am really blessed,” he said. He feared the humid weather and wind would ruin the art project he had been working on for months. “The creation of gunpowder art is very much like lovemaking. There’s a lot of uncertainty. The results come only after the climax,” he said, with a smile. Known for his pyrotechnic projects worldwide, such as the big footsteps in the night sky during the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the 55-yearold calls the Hangzhou art project “a spiritual homecoming”.
Cai says he has been enamored with Hangzhou as a child because of its poems and legends, and made his ﬁrst visit in 1978 for an exhibition about French art, describing it as “love at ﬁrst sight”. “For years, I have longed to create a great work for the city,” said Cai, who believes West Lake represents the soul of the city. Cai’s art project coincides with the anniversary of West Lake’s UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listing. “What struck me most was not just the natural beauty of the lake but also the leisurely and comfortable lifestyle, and the harmony between man and nature,” Cai said. He added that his art project provided an opportunity to “go back in history and learn from it, and rethink the rapid social development of China, which has caused a slew of environmental, health and social problems”.
After studying Hangzhou’s art and history, he discovered that, while texts abound, not many paintings had survived the test of time. “Now it’s is my turn to capture the soul of Hangzhou with my gunpowder painting. It is a whole new approach,” he said. Cai’s gunpowder adventure with Hangzhou began in September when he did a gunpowder painting on paper at Zhejiang Art Museum of Qiantang River’s tidal waves. The spectacular tides draw tens of thousands of tourists from across the world every summer. Cai said he learned a lot about drawing techniques from old ink masters such as the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) Zhai Jichang, who created the scroll Watching Tidal Waves, now in the collection of the Zhejiang Museum. But Cai believes his work “may be more appealing to today’s viewers, at least for its sheer size and stronger visual impact”. Cai’s Qiantang tidal wave painting is 3 meters high and 36 meters long, while the West Lake gunpowder paintings are 8 meters high and more than 20 meters long. The West Lake and Qiantang River tide wave paintings are the focus of Cai’s latest solo show, which will run until June 3 at Zhejiang Art Museum.

Cai has arranged his Hangzhou works in two circular galleries at the museum. Flimsy silk veils cover the gunpowder paintings, together with ambient lighting, and background music. The solo exhibition, which features 30 works Cai has created since the early 1980s, includes a vivid portrait of performers from the Zhejiang Hundred-Flower Yueju Opera Troupe. “With my gunpowder paintings as a whole, I am in a dialogue with nature, our ancestors, and people today,” said Cai, who calls himself a public artist, believing “artworks do not have meaning until they connect with the public”.
They sit for hours in study halls honing academic skills, but at the end of the day, many foreign students in Beijing turn their attention to another type of performance: talent shows. “I like music and often perform songs in the dorm with my friend,” said Fivaldy Halwa, an Indonesian student of administrative management at Beijing’s University of International Business and Economics. Halwa and his performing partner Ashfa Abid Suyoto won the popularity award at the university’s 2012 Laowai Idol for their performance of Jason Mraz’s hippie hit I’m Yours. “I felt awesome on stage. The event allowed me to show my musical passion and boosted my conﬁdence. I will give it another shot when it runs next time,” said Halwa, who was participating in a talent show for the ﬁrst time. The event, hosted by the UIBE’s School of International Education, turned out to be unadulterated fun as students from countries such as Indonesia, France and the United States pitted their artistic dexterity against one another, wowing a fullhouse audience with hip hop dance, solo gigs and band performances. Giang Nguyen, a Vietnamese student and president of the student union’s art department, said the show, now in its third year, has become more appealing. “Previous events were like private parties for international students, but now we have drawn the attention of and gained support from the university’s authorities and
Chinese students,” Nguyen said. The 2012 event also featured special guests such as Martin Cityzen, a US performer known for his modern rendition of old Chinese songs, and Ding Guangquan, a veteran crosstalk performer who has many foreign students. About 3,000 international students from 120 countries study at the university, and helping them adapt to campus life is high on the university’s agenda, said Zhao Zhongxiu, vice-president of UIBE. “Through such activities, the university hopes to identify those foreign students with untapped talent and build a harmonious environment for them,” he said. Du Wei, who works at the international office of Renmin University of China, said many universities start such events because they not only provide a platform for foreign students to showcase their talent, but also bring joy to Chinese students. Renmin University of China’s International Student Talent Show always attracts a throng of Chinese who applaud ecstatically for a variety of performances such as skits, poem recitals and singing by the university’s international students from such countries as Russia, Australia and Egypt, he said. “It’s hard to have a new talent show featuring Chinese performers, but when the stars are foreigners, there is a sense of novelty for Chinese people,” he said, adding this year’s event included a martial arts performance. Shi Song, associate dean of the College of International Education of Nanjing
Agricultural University, also feels a talent show is a grand gala for everybody in the university. Last year, the university launched the ﬁrst International Culture Festival, which featured a talent show that attracted the universities’ international students from some 20 countries to strut their stuff. “Many foreign students are so diligent that they spend a lot of time in the lab and
classroom. It seems they are isolated from Chinese culture,” Shi said. “The festival was designed to offer foreign students a way to relax and enable them to better enjoy life in China,” he said. A plethora of acts from lion dance to traditional costume modeling also help Chinese faculty and students learn more, he said. Last year, Ngoh Samuel Aziseh, an accounting student from Cameroon, who stood out from the university’s activities with his Peking Opera performances, got a place in China Central Television’s popular program Hanyu Zhi Xing (Chinese Star), a national competition to showcase student achievements in learning Chinese.

The Time of Their Lives ‘White Heat’ traces a group of friends through six decades Premieres BBCA
Like “The Big Chill,”
“White Heat” uses the death of a friend to reacquaint a circle of friends that formed in the turbulent 1960s. But unlike t hat mov ie, “White Heat” is not a funeral for a sensibilit y. It ’s a stor y spa nning si x decades a nd a multitude of characters. The series is set against the youthful idealism, union strife and IRA violence of the 1970s, Margaret Thatcher’s strident leadership of the 1980s, Tony Blair’s era of a f f luence during t he late 1990s and 2000s and the age of global terror that brings us to the present day. The action bounces back and forth in time, mixing period footage with scenes of unfolding melodrama. KE VIN MCDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)
10:00 the new British drama
‘White Heat” follows a circle of friends from the ’60s, above, to present day, below.

Sitcoms Nature “The White Lions’’ tells the story of two extremely rare white lion cubs on their journey to adulthood. The two females were born in May 2009 in South Africa’s Kruger Park and must overcome not only the same survival challenges that all lion cubs face, but also the threats that their high visibility brings.
Revenge This episode flashes back to 2002, when Emily, who was known as Amanda Clarke then, is living dangerously until Nolan suggests she read her father’s journals. This leads her to start stalking the Graysons while sowing the seeds of her revenge plan.

Product Placement Disney owns ABC, so it’s not unusual for a trip to a Disney park to find its way into an ABC show. On this week’s “Modern Family” (9 p.m., ABC), a visit to Disneyland has Phil struggling to keep up with Luke, while Mitch and Cam try to stay one step ahead of Lily, who’s recently learned to run. Elsewhere, Jay and Gloria butt heads over the issue of appropriate footwear. (TM)

“The best part? The phone numbers listed on the invite are real. ... The Zimbabwe embassy in D.C. also said it knows nothing of the event. Successful hoax!” — HERMAN VICTOR AT DISTRICTION.COM
gives credit to whoever sent out the mass invitation purported to be from Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe to a screening of “The Dictator” in Harare Saturday.
“Did you know ‘The Magic School Bus’ kids became... THE ‘CAPTAIN PLANET’ PLANETEERS?!? ... Both of those shows just got so much cooler.” — ELIZABETHANY.COM was blown away by
the character development on two ’90s TV series.
“If the White House correspondents’ dinner is Nerd Prom, then the Met Gala is Fashionista Prom. The dresses are way better than in high school, of course, but the couples are just as cute and the photo opps just as awkward — and we totally love it.” — ELLIE KRUPNICK AT HUFFINGTONPOST.COM had a great
time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute in New York Monday night.
“I went to see ‘The Avengers’ today and it was sold out. I looked like an idiot dressed like the Hulk during a showing of ‘Think Like a Man.’” — @CONANOBRIEN had some trouble
at the theaters this week.
“But, we would like to give credit where credit is due. The nickname ‘Bandersnatch Cummerbund’ originated with one of the serious students of television who join me each Friday to chat about all things TV.” — LISA DE MORAES AT WASHINGTONPOST.COM/BLOGS/ TV-COLUMN clears up the
confusion over a recent piece that made fun of the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who stars in the PBS series “Sherlock.”

PAR SCORE 145-155, BEST SCORE 208
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may find yourself trading barbs with someone very like yourself. Which one of you is in it for something more than fun? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have to wait for something to happen before you can use your natural reaction to get in a position of prominence. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will be keeping things carefully in balance at this time but you’ll have to rely on someone else to keep them moving forward as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You don’t have to go through with anything that doesn’t feel right today, but you may be compelled to see where things are going. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A situation unfolds today in a way that proves surprising to you — even though you have tried to prepare for every eventuality. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You may receive a call, message or email today that provides more necessary information than expected. It’s time to get moving! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A developing situation requires more cooperation from you than you have been giving recently. You know who’s on your team. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Surprises are unavoidable, but you can shape your reactions enough to send the right messages to a certain few.
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.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Appearances can be deceiving, but today you’re likely to get exactly what you see from people and situations. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are in no mood for crowds today. Choose your companions carefully, and you’ll proceed down a path that offers rewards and enjoyment.
POOCH CAFE | PAUL GILLIGAN
Today: A couple of thunderstorms today. A couple of showers tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can’t expect someone who has received help from you recently to express his or her gratitude openly. You must read between the lines. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Memories aren’t likely to provide you with the answers you seek today. You’re going to have to examine each issue more closely than usual.

Tired of Obstructive Sleep Apnea? For millions of adults like you, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a daily struggle, robbing you of the deep restful sleep you need to get through your day. Untreated OSA is also associated with an increased risk of serious health conditions, including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and stroke. Right now, sleep specialists at The Center for Sleep & Wake Disorders in Chevy Chase are conducting a research study of an investigational device for obstructive sleep apnea that may help. If you have OSA, and haven’t had lasting success with CPAP or other treatments, this study may be right for you.
