Exactly which acts of terrorism require 40 frozen piranhas?

‘Eliminate the copy desk,’ they said. ‘No one will notice,’ they said.

Park manager’s ingenious plan inexplicably vetoed by authorities

A famous chef was stopped as he brought 40 piranhas in a duffel bag through the L.A. airport. Virgilio Martinez, chef-owner of Central restaurant in Peru, told the L.A. Times on Wednesday that he hoped to serve the fish at a food festival. He said agents pulled him into an interrogation room when they found the frozen, vacuum-sealed piranhas. After five hours, the agents let Martinez go with the fish. He used them that night on a salad. (AP)

Australia’s central bank has taken responsibility for typos on 46 million bank notes after a radio station posted an image of the microscopic error. Triple M radio posted on Instagram on Thursday a magnified photograph of a 50 Australian dollar ($35) note with “responsibility” misspelled. The word appears three times on the note and the third “i″ is omitted every time. The Reserve Bank of Australia said the error will be corrected at the next print run. (AP)

An attempt by a Berlin park manager to keep drug dealers away from families and joggers was met with an emphatic “nein” from officials. Cengiz Demirci marked certain areas in Goerlitzer Park with pink spray-painted lines for dealers to stand behind, with the goal of keeping them away from playgrounds and family areas. But federal drug czar Marlene Mortler slammed the idea Thursday as appearing to give dealers “license to trade.” (AP)

page three Intrigue’s intriguing new home REVIEW With its move from the Penn Quarter neighborhood to a new, purpose-built building at L’Enfant Plaza on 10th Street SW, the Spy Museum is making an investment not just in a bigger space, but also in a neighborhood that planners and developers are desperately trying to redeem, from Brutalist office-block dead zone to a lively entertainment and commercial district. The new $162 million building is part of an effort to fill in some of the heroically scaled blank spaces along 10th Street, which was once meant to be a cultural center but evolved in the late 1960s and early ’70s into a littleloved district of exposed concrete buildings set in a desolate plaza. If the museum —which opens to the public Sunday — attracts its typical annual attendance of about 600,000 (or even more), it could help connect the Mall, to the north, with the Wharf development, along the Southwest Waterfront, into one self-reinforcing tourist and commercial quarter. The building itself could be

The Spy Museum’s new space pairs well with its dark subject matter

The Spy Museum at L’Enfant Plaza has a technologically sophisticated look.

an attraction. Designed by Ivan Harbour of the London-based Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the museum has a sharp, technologically sophisticated look that is both at odds with its surroundings and organically connected to them. From the outside, it reads as an inverted rectangular pyramid, topped by a cantilevered box, with industrial-looking supports anchored into the ground. The exterior metal skin, which

the architects call “the veil,” is fitted with lights that define its shape at night. When one catches glimpses from Interstate 395, the building suggests some kind of spaceship or top-secret communications hub — windowless, alien and slightly forbidding. There’s no more fashionable word in architecture today than transparency, but the Spy Museum, like other experiential museums, isn’t about

transparency. The experience requires a dark space just as the subject matter — surveillance and covert operations — take place in the dark corners of our manmade world. The building can’t glorify its contents in the same way an art museum can be a temple of art, or a history museum conceived as a kind of national monument. The architects have finessed this problem, creating a building that, like spying, is intriguing rather than beautiful. Yet the Spy Museum does not feel fully public spirited. Although it is a nonprofit museum, it charges admission and its exhibitions, such as one on torture, aren’t always sufficiently critical of their topic. So it’s hard to love the institution in the way that one loves the National Gallery of Art or the Smithsonian or the Phillips Collection or the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It would be delightful if the same designers who have wrapped the dark spaces of the Spy Museum in such fine form would now create something that could be universally enjoyed and admired.

A political flashpoint in D.C.

FAIRFAX COUNTY

Popular children’s singer faces child porn charges

THE DISTRICT The sun had just dipped below the horizon Wednesday evening when the lights flicked off inside the Venezuelan Embassy in D.C. Waves of cheers rolled up and down the Georgetown street that has become ground zero in an intensifying standoff between backers of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó and left-wing activists who support President Nicolás Maduro. With no electricity, activists who have been living inside the building are adjusting to the latest obstacle in their month-long occupation of the embassy. Getting food inside has been one of the biggest challenges for the past 10 days, with anti-Maduro protesters and Secret Service barricades blocking most of the doors. Then Thursday, activists announced they will be cutting back on their primary source of communication with the outside world: social media. With no power to charge their devices, there will be less tweeting and fewer video streams. Organizers with Code Pink, a left-wing organization, said the utility bills had been paid in full by the Maduro-led Venezuelan government. But Pepco, the building’s electricity provider, told activists the U.S.-backed opposition government had ordered the power be shut off, Code Pink co-founder

Venezuelan Embassy goes dark as standoff intensifies on streets

Supporters of opposition leader Juan Guaidó block an entrance earlier this month at the Embassy of Venezuela.

Medea Benjamin said. Members of Code Pink and other far-left groups have been inside the embassy since April 10 at the invitation of Maduro government officials. About two weeks into Code Pink’s residency, Venezuelan and VenezuelanAmerican protesters began to gather outside. They have not left since. “In response to this illegal occupation, members … of the Venezuelan community have gathered in the hundreds over the past couple of days to protest the illegal trespassing of these groups,” protester Dilianna Bustillos said. The embassy has become the site of a proxy power struggle that mirrors the international battle

been trying to launch past police barricades and the raised hands of pro-Guaidó demonstrators. Each side has also accused the other of violence. Pro-Guaidó protesters said they’re prepared to stay as long as Code Pink does. On Thursday, several celebrated the irony of a blackout at the Venezuelan Embassy — a circumstance that has become a common occurrence in the South American country. “They’re getting a little taste of what Venezuela has been experiencing,” demonstrator Daniela Bustillos said. “It’s a small victory for us. But we will not be satisfied until they leave once and for all.” MARISSA J. LANG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

NO HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE FOR HOGAN

The proportion of Maryland GOP voters who would support Gov. Larry Hogan in a primary fight against President Trump, according to a survey released Thursday by Gonzales Research & Media Services. Hogan, R, remains just as popular as Trump among Maryland Republicans, but that popularity does not translate to support for a primary campaign, the survey found. Hogan is “strongly considering” a 2020 primary bid, but has said he feels no urgency to decide about the race before the fall. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Ransomware attack forces city to go ‘manual’ Baltimore Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young says a ransomware virus that hit the city’s computer systems has forced operations to “revert back to manual.” The Baltimore Sun reports the extent of the ransomware attack was noticeable this week as some city systems remained offline and several departments reported email and phone issues. The 911 system hasn’t been affected. The FBI is investigating after authorities said Tuesday that hackers were demanding about $76,000 to unlock encrypted files in city computers. (AP) RICHMOND

local Rule push comes amid scandal surrounding Council member Evans THE DISTRICT The ethics scandal surrounding D.C. Council member Jack Evans, D-Ward 2, has prompted some local activists to go doorto-door in his district to make the case for stronger ethics laws. The local progressive group D.C. for Democracy is collecting signatures for a petition urging the council to pass tougher ethics rules, saying Evans’ conduct

has laid bare the need. “There needs to be some systemic fixes to reform the way the council does business,” said Jeremiah Lowery, the group’s chairman. “If you replace Jack Evans … with another council member, then the underlying problems with how the council does business still exists.” The petition urges residents to support a ban on outside employment for council members, as well as measures abolishing constituent services funds and to strengthen the Board of Ethics and Government Accountability.

D.C. group seeks tougher ethics laws

Council member Jack Evans is under investigation for soliciting work from firms that deal with the city.

They hope to collect thousands to turn into the D.C. Council, which is considering changes in ethics laws, including a ban on outside employment for lawmakers. The D.C. Council in March reprimanded Evans and stripped him of some legislative responsibilities for soliciting business from law firms that lobby the city, offering to help their clients by using the influence and connections he amassed as a lawmaker and as chairman of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

No doubt the coming summerlong shutdown of all Yellow and Blue line stations south of Reagan National Airport is going disrupt lives. But it will strike at few people’s souls like it will Jess Mears’ — for it will make it harder for her to get Chick-fil-A. Mears, 31, favors the chicken nuggets over the original chicken sandwich. Metro has been her lifeline to small bits of deep-fried chicken ever since she moved near Alexandria’s King St.-Old Town station in August. For many people who move to an unfamiliar place, the foods of home can be a touchstone. The absence — or inferior quality — of them can also be a source of distress, as D.C.’s bagels and pizza are for transplanted New Yorkers. Mears’ affection for Chickfil-A isn’t as profound as all that. “It just tastes good,” she said. She moved here to take a job as membership manager for the national Libertarian Party without a car: Shortly before her move, she was sitting at a red light in St. Petersburg, Fla., in her Toyota RAV4 as a city bus approached from behind her. She assumed it would stop. It didn’t. For the most part, taking the train and biking around has worked out fine, she said. Except she can’t drive to get her chicken nuggets when the craving strikes.

But she did find that there’s a Chick-fil-A just two Metro stops from King Street, even though her willingness to go there elicits laughs even from her own mother. “I don’t think it’s that funny,” she said. “But when I tell people I go to the airport to get chicken, they think it’s hilarious.” As she said this during a lunchtime run on Monday, Mears was sitting on a Yellow Line train with people lugging suitcases, bound maybe for Hawaii. Maybe Paris? Probably not for Chick-fil-A. During another run a few weeks ago, she got off the train at Reagan and passed a Metro crew doing construction. She walked into the terminal and made a right, past a self-checkin kiosk and a large plate glass window where planes can be seen taxiing toward a gate. “Libertarians joke the government should run like the Chick-fil-A drive-through, or that whoever runs the Chickfil-A drive-through should run the government,” Mears said. And indeed, she was back on the platform five minutes later, where one of the Metro workers did a double-take at seeing her back, eating fries from her Chick-fil-A bag. “He said, ‘I just saw you get off. Did you come here just for Chick-fil-A?’” Mears said. “I was like ‘Yes.’ ” He flashed two thumbs up. “Like, ‘I respect that,’ ” Mears said. But soon she’ll be cut off. King St.-Old Town is one of the six stations that will be closed from May 25 through Sept. 8

so their deteriorating platforms can be rebuilt.

She could also order from a food delivery service, like DoorDash. But getting fast

food delivered strikes her as even stranger than going to the airport for it. So as thousands of commuters prepare for the upcoming shutdown, Mears said she’s trying to use Metro as much as she can to see Washington’s sights, and also to get her chicken. Over lunch, it was pointed

out to her that there’s a lot more to buy at the airport. Nearby, a store called Brighton sold handbags and necklaces. Flip-flops and short-sleeved men’s shirts with colorful patterns hung on racks at the front of Vineyard Vines. She wasn’t interested in getting anything else at the airport. “No,” she said. “Just the chicken.” Reach Kery Murakami at kery.murakami@washpost.com. Follow him @theDCrider.

U.S. seizes N. Korean ship amid escalating tensions

DECRIMINALIZED

Denver eases enforcement on ’shrooms

WASHINGTON The U.S. said Thursday that it has seized a North Korean cargo ship that was used to violate international sanctions, a firstof-its-kind enforcement action that comes amid a tense moment in relations between the two countries. The “Wise Honest,” North Korea’s second-largest cargo ship, was detained in April 2018 as it traveled toward Indonesia. It’s now in the process of being moved to American Samoa, Justice Department officials said. Officials made the announcement hours after North Korea fired two suspected short-range missiles toward the sea, the second weapons launch in five days and a possible signal that stalled talks over its nuclear weapons program are in trouble. The public disclosure that the vessel is now in U.S. custody may further inflame tensions, though U.S. officials said the timing of their complaint was not a response to the missile launch. Justice Department lawyers laid out the case for confiscating the ship in a complaint filed in New York, arguing that payments for maintenance and operation of the vessel were channeled through unwitting U.S. financial institutions in violation of American law. The coal trade

itself is also believed to fund the isolated country’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. “This sanctions-busting ship is now out of service,” Assistant Attorney General John Demers, the Justice Department’s top national security official, told reporters. The 581-foot Wise Honest was used for coal transports to ports in China, Russia and other countries, according to the complaint, generating badly needed revenue to a country that is under U.N. sanctions because of its nuclear weapons program. The vessel was owned by a subsidiary of a North Korean shipping company that is controlled

by the country’s military and is on a Treasury Department sanctions list, officials said. North Korea sought to disguise the nationality of the ship and the origin of its cargo, according to the complaint. The ship, in what U.S. officials say was a clear act of concealment, also turned off an automatic signal system intended to alert other ships of its course and location. The U.S. has prosecuted people and businesses for violating sanctions but has never before seized a North Korean ship. The country will have an opportunity to contest the seizure in court. If the U.S. prevails, it will be able to sell the vessel. ERIC TUCKER (AP)

By a narrow margin, voters on Tuesday made Denver the first U.S. city to decriminalize psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in “magic mushrooms.” Organizers of the decriminalization push say their only goal was to keep people out of jail in Denver for using or possessing the psychedelic drug to cope with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and other conditions. The initiative makes use or possession of psilocybin by people 21 and older the lowest enforcement priority for police and prosecutors. It does not legalize psilocybin or permit its sale by marijuana businesses. (AP)

communications, said in a statement. “Accountability of tech companies can only be achieved through the painstaking introduction of new rules for the internet.” Hughes’ op-ed painted a stark portrait of Facebook’s dominance: The company is worth a halftrillion dollars and its products are regularly used by billions of people. By Hughes’ estimates, Facebook commands “more than 80 percent of the world’s social networking revenue.” Hughes and Zuckerberg cofounded Facebook with Eduardo Saverin and Dustin Moskovitz in 2004 while they were enrolled at Harvard University. All are now billionaires save Hughes, whose fortune has been estimated at $430 million. Another major social networking platform hasn’t been founded since 2011, and despite movements like #deleteFacebook,

EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

TECHNOLOGY Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook, is calling for the breakup of the social media juggernaut, citing the threat of the platform’s unchecked power and that of its chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg. In an op-ed published Thursday in The New York Times, Hughes joined the growing chorus of lawmakers and advocates demanding that the U.S. government rein in Facebook. Although Facebook has had myriad scandals, including Russian propagandists exploiting the platform to spread misinformation and sway U.S. elections, its reach continues to grow. “For too long, lawmakers have marveled at Facebook’s explosive growth and overlooked their responsibility to ensure Americans are protected and markets are competitive,” Hughes wrote. “It is time to break up Facebook.” Facebook rejected this argument in a statement Thursday, suggesting regulation of the internet — as Zuckerberg called for in a March op-ed published in The Washington Post — was the only thing that would bring real accountability. “Facebook accepts that with success comes accountability. But you don’t enforce accountability by calling for the breakup of a successful American company,” Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs and

Co-founder urges the U.S. government to rein in company’s unchecked powers

Content of extremists slips through the cracks A whistleblower’s complaint to the Securities and Exchange Commission obtained by The Associated Press alleges Facebook has exaggerated its success in removing extremist content. Even worse, it shows that the company is inadvertently using propaganda by militants and hate groups to auto-generate videos and pages that could be used for networking. According to the complaint, over a five-month period last year, researchers monitored pages by users who affiliated themselves with groups the U.S. State Department has designated as terrorist organizations. In that period, 38% of the posts with prominent symbols of extremist groups were removed. In its own review, the AP found that as of this month, much of the banned content cited in the study — an execution video, images of severed heads, propaganda honoring martyred militants — slipped through the algorithmic web and remained easy to find on Facebook. The company concedes that its systems are not perfect, but says they are improving. (AP)

it’s almost impossible to avoid, with many people eschewing the core platform in favor of Instagram or WhatsApp, not realizing they are Facebook subsidiaries. The apparent avalanche of disasters hasn’t dented Facebook’s finances; its earnings per share increased 40 percent last year, despite a torrent of public failures. No aspect of Facebook is more troubling than Zuckerberg’s total authority, Hughes wrote, calling it “unprecedented and un-American.” Zuckerberg controls 60 percent of the company’s voting shares and has ultimate oversight over Facebook’s algorithms, privacy settings and community guidelines. He has the money and power to copy, buy or squash his competitors. Hughes wants the government to correct the Federal Trade Commission’s “biggest mistake” by forcing Instagram and WhatsApp to split from Facebook and become competitors again. Legislators on both sides of the aisle have also made a case for federal intervention. This week, two senators wrote the FTC to urge it to go beyond its expected $5 billion fine against Facebook for its privacy practices. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, DConn., and Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., wrote: “The public is rightly asking whether Facebook is too big to be held accountable.”

HEALTH President Trump on Thursday called for an end to “surprise medical bills,” the astonishingly high charges insured patients can face when a member of a medical team that treats them is not in their insurer’s network. “Not a pleasant surprise,” Trump said of bills that arrive in the mail and run to tens of thousands of dollars. “A very unpleasant surprise.” The administration threw its support behind efforts by lawmakers of both parties to address the problem, laying out a set of goals for legislation: Patients who receive emergency care should not be hit with charges that exceed the amount paid to in-network providers. In an emergency, patients are in no position to check whether their insurers have contracted with the surgeons or anesthesiologists who provide care. Patients going in for a scheduled procedure should get upfront information about whether their clinicians are in their insurer’s network and what costs they will face. Patients should not get out-of-network bills from a provider they did not pick. Fixes should not add to federal health care costs. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said he hoped to deliver a bill in July. KEVIN FREKING

Pelosi’s plea: Patience Speaker plans to take methodical approach to pursue oversight of the White House House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the country faces a “constitutional crisis.”

WIN MCNAMEE (GETTY IMAGES)

POLITICS House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the country faces a “constitutional crisis” over President Trump’s resistance to congressional investigation, and she promised a methodical, if lengthy, effort to pursue oversight of the White House. Pelosi made no promise for a swift House vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress over his refusal to release special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report, deferring to a fresh subpoena for the document from the Intelligence Committee that’s due back next week. She continued to tamp down talk of impeachment. Instead, Pelosi foreshadowed a long-game strategy of Congress confronting a White House she suggested is all but goading her with its refusal to comply with oversight demands. “The president thinks it is a laughing matter,” Pelosi said. “This is about the American people and their right to know, and their election that is at stake — and that a foreign government intervened in our election — so we can prevent it from happening again.” “We won’t go any faster than the facts take us or any slower.” The step-by-step approach has been Pelosi’s touchstone for the escalating standoff between the two branches of government in the aftermath of Mueller’s report. By rebuffing Congress,

she said, the White House is essentially committing the kind of obstruction of justice Mueller probed in his report. “The president is almost selfimpeaching,” she said. The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to hold Barr in contempt of Congress, capping a day of ever-deepening dispute between congressional Democrats and the Republican White House. Ahead of the vote, Trump for the first time invoked the principle of executive privilege, claiming the right to block lawmakers from the full report on Mueller’s probe of Russian

Sen. Burr takes GOP fire Republicans lashed out Thursday at fellow GOP Sen. Richard Burr for his committee’s subpoena of President Trump’s son, a move that suggested the Russia investigation is not “case closed” as some in the party insist. Trump said he was “very surprised” at the move.

interference to help Trump in the 2016 election. Though the White House initially hesitated on invoking privilege, Trump told his staff and political advisers in recent weeks to refuse to cooperate with Democrats, declaring the party’s goal was simply to damage him politically going into his reelection campaign. The coming legal battle could stretch to 2020, and the White House is aiming to tie up congressional probes until Election Day. The president’s decision was weeks in the making, the next inevitable escalation between the White House and Congress over a number of probes. The White House has rejected all efforts to probe Trump’s business dealings or tax returns as well as the West Wing’s security clearance procedure. Democrats made their case that Congress was at a historic juncture as it confronts what they consider Trump’s stonewalling of lawmakers’ ability to conduct oversight. Republicans portrayed the majority as angry and lashing out at Barr after the special counsel did not find that Trump colluded with Russia to swing the 2016 election. Said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas: “The president now seeks to take a wrecking ball to the Constitution of the United States.” MARY CLARE JALONICK, LISA MASCARO AND JONATHAN LEMIRE (AP)

U.S., China hit critical moment in negotiations ECONOMY The United States and China hurtled toward a defining moment in their four-decade-old relationship Thursday, with financial markets bracing for the outcome of unusually dramatic trade talks in Washington. Negotiators met into the evening in a bid to avert a scheduled increase in U.S. tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese products that was due to take effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday. No matter what happens at the bargaining table, relations between the world’s two largest economies, accounting for roughly 40 percent of global output, appear certain to change. “They’re really determined to go in a different direction,” said Timothy Stratford, chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China and a former U.S. diplomat in Beijing. “The U.S. is recalibrating its policy toward China.” At stake — along with industrial supply chains supporting millions of American jobs — was President Trump’s campaign promise to rebalance the U.S. trading relationship with China in favor of American workers. Nearly $660 billion in goods were traded between the nations last year. Trump said Thursday he had received “a beautiful letter” from Chinese President Xi Jinping, above. Trump said Xi’s message was: “Let’s work together. Let’s see if we can get something done.” DAVID J. LYNCH (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Alabama delays abortion ban vote MONTGOMERY, ALA. Alabama lawmakers on Thursday postponed a vote on a proposed abortion ban after anger erupted in the state Senate when some Republicans stripped an exception for rape and incest from the bill. Shouting broke among senators when the exemption for rape and incest was removed without a roll call vote. Democrats and some Republicans objected to the change to the bill, which would make performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy a felony, being gaveled through quickly. Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh suggested lawmakers go home for the weekend to cool off and resume debate on the bill Tuesday. Marsh said he supports an exemption for rape and wants a roll call vote on the matter next week. He said the bill still has a favorable outlook in the GOP-dominated chamber. The anger over the procedural dispute underscored tensions over the proposal that would become the most stringent abortion restriction in the country if approved. Emboldened by conservative justices who have joined the Supreme Court, abortion opponents in several states are seeking to spark a legal challenge that could eventually lead the court

fighting words ALABAMA ABORTION BAN

“You’ve got 27 men over on the other side ready to tell women what they can do with their bodies. ” Democratic Sen. Bobby Singleton, arguing against the ban.

“We are going right through the front door directly after Roe.” Republican Rep. Rich Wingo, arguing in favor of the ban as part of an effort to overturn Roe v. Wade.

to revisit Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide. The Alabama bill comes soon after Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio and Georgia approved bans on abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur in about the sixth week of pregnancy. The Alabama bill, which was approved by the House of Representatives 74-3 last week, goes further by seeking to outlaw abortion outright. KIM CHANDLER (AP)

Pope requires all priests, nuns to report abuse RELIGION Pope Francis issued a groundbreaking new church law Thursday requiring all Catholic priests and nuns around the world to report clergy sexual abuse and cover-up by their superiors to church authorities, in a new effort to hold the Catholic hierarchy accountable for failing to protect their flocks. Abuse victims and their advocates said it was a step forward, but not enough since it doesn’t require the crimes to be reported to police and essentially tasks bishops discredited for mishandling abuse for decades with policing their own. The new law provides whistleblower protections for anyone making a report and requires all dioceses around the world to have a system in place to receive the claims confidentially. And it outlines procedures for conducting investigations when the accused is a bishop, cardinal or religious superior. But it doesn’t require them to report abuse to law enforcement. The Vatican has long argued that different legal systems in different countries make a universal reporting law impossible, and that imposing one could endanger the church in places where Catholics are a persecuted minority. But the procedures do for the first time put into universal church law that clergy must obey civil reporting requirements where they live, and that their obligation to report to the church in no way interferes with that.

A tall task for Warriors of four or five years ago before we had Kevin. We were heavily dependent on Steph generating a lot of our offense back then.” Thompson, who had been held in check throughout much of this second-round series, hit five 3-pointers en route to a teamhigh 27 points. Now the Warriors must regroup to do it again with precious little time to make strategic adjustments in the wake of Durant’s injury. Golden State holds a 3-2 series lead heading back to Houston for Game 6 on Friday. “With Kevin out, it changes everything,” Kerr said. “We’ll have to reconfigure the rotation.” Golden State has scarcely used its bench this series, but now has no choice given that Durant, the NBA playoffs’ leading scorer, has played 42.4 minutes per game against Houston. Look for a bycommittee approach, with Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston, Jonas Jerebko and Alfonzo McKinnie all pitching in. Most of Durant’s work, though,

NBA PLAYOFFS Kevin Durant, the man whose 2016 arrival transformed the Golden State Warriors from incredible to unstoppable, limped to the locker room, and suddenly a dynasty’s fate was back in the hands of its founding members. Golden State’s 104-99 home win over the Rockets on Wednesday left the champs juggling elation and disappointment. In an eerie scene that silenced Oracle Arena, Durant was forced from action with a strained right calf midway through the third quarter. Yet Golden State outscored Houston 32-27 in the final period, holding James Harden to just five points in the quarter with vintage performances from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. After another slow start in a series full of them, Curry scored 12 of his 25 points in what he termed a fourth-quarter “breakthrough.” “When Kevin went out, Steph just went into a different mindset,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It kind of reminded me

He is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week. (AP)

Curry must re-emerge as the alpha scorer and lead playmaker, running more pick-and-rolls and shooting more. Thompson will also see his perimeter scoring burden increase. Green, who had 12 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 5, will be tasked with holding down the glass, protecting Golden State’s backside defense and orchestrating offensive possessions. Iguodala will see more time guarding Harden, who scored a game-high 31 points before going quiet down the stretch. BEN GOLLIVER

Albert Pujols is the third modern-day player with 2,000 career RBIs. The Angels first baseman hit a solo home run Thursday against the Tigers, putting him in a group with Hank Aaron (2,297) and Alex Rodriguez (2,086). Detroit left-hander Ryan Carpenter threw Pujols a fastball over the middle and he sent the 2-0 pitch deep into the right-field seats. Pujols, 39, received an ovation from the sparse crowd at Detroit’s Comerica Park, where his accomplishment was recognized on the videoboards and by the public address announcer. Babe Ruth is credited with 1,992 RBIs because official records don’t count the 224 runs he drove in with the Red Sox from 1914 to 1919. (AP)

NATS’ OFFENSIVE WOES

Over that 10-game span, Washington went 2-8 and scored more than three runs only once.

The tarp was on, and the outfield was a grassy soup late Sunday morning as Bryan Harper stood outside the people-on-top-of-people visitors’ clubhouse at Regency Furniture Stadium and said, quite plainly and believably, “I’m happy to be here.” He wore Under Armour sweats and a backward black baseball cap because it wasn’t yet time to pull on his Lancaster Barnstormers grays for the game against the host Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, destined to be postponed anyway. He is 29, a young man. He has been told he’s too old. He is a left-handed pitcher who has appeared in 213 minor-league games, during which he held

table, man,” he said. “I have too much left in the tank. When I told Bryce I was going to have to go to indy ball, he was like, ‘Just go do it, man. Don’t worry about it. Whether it works out or not, if you feel like you can still do it, go do it.’ ” What’s the chance at this point, really? The year Bryce made his major league debut as a 19-year-old with the Nationals

and became the National League’s rookie of the year, Bryan was posting a 10.59 ERA with the Nats’ short-season Class A affiliate in Auburn, N.Y. From there came a slog completely familiar in baseball, which has countless more Bryan Harpers than Bryces. By 2016, Harper had earned his way to Class AAA Syracuse by using a fastball that sits at 89-90 mph, mixed with a change-up and his wipeout slider to dominate left-handed hitters. Then he had Tommy John surgery. Last summer, the road back left him, on July 13, on the mound at Class AA Harrisburg facing the Hartford Yard Goats. Bryan holds the same hope as every Atlantic League player: perform well, and a big-league farm director might need him. He knows it might not happen. “If I’m here all year, and if I put up good numbers, and nobody wants me, then maybe I’ll revisit it in the offseason,” Bryan said. “But right now, I’m worrying about what I’m doing today, what I’m doing next week, and that’s it. I’m all-in. I have to be.” Follow Barry Svrluga on Twitter @barrysvrluga

Silver: Hire more women to coach and ref in league

Jags LB Smith steps away to ‘get my world in order’

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver wants half of all new referees joining the league to be women — and he’d like to see teams hire more female coaches. Silver said Thursday that two of the past five refs added from the G-League were women, bringing the total number of female officials to three. “There’s no reason why women shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball,” he said. Becky Hammon became the league’s first full-time female assistant when she joined the Spurs staff. Mystics guard Kristi Toliver worked as an assistant coach for the Wizards this season. (AP)

Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith, the team’s leading tackler the past two seasons and a 2017 Pro Bowl selection, is stepping away from football to “give this time back to myself, my family & my health.” Smith, 28, made the announcement Thursday on Instagram, saying “at this time I must take time away from this game & get my world in order. I appreciate all the support I will & will not get. I just ask that y’all respect my decision to not play football this season.” A fifth-round draft pick from Florida State in 2014, Smith has 445 tackles, nine interceptions, 7½ sacks and five forced fumbles in five seasons.

Hopefully “Detective Pikachu” solves the mystery of where this fella got that adorable little deerstalker hat.

A soft-boiled mystery

The visually dazzling ‘Pokemon Detective Pikachu’ gently plays with film noir tropes

FILM REVIEW It may be surprising, to put it mildly, to read a review of “Pokemon Detective Pikachu” that also mentions “Blade Runner.” (More on this later.) But in a world where goldfish turn into dragons and baby dinosaurs walk the streets with tails aflame, stranger things have been known to happen. For the uninitiated, Pokemon are mythical creatures with special abilities. Working with human trainers, they battle one another for supremacy. The phenomenon started in the 1990s with video games, evolving into a cartoon series, a card game and eventually the ever-present cultural juggernaut it is today. “Detective Pikachu,” the first live-action/animated entry in

the Pokemon canon, takes the creatures out of the ring and puts them on the streets of a place called Ryme City, where Pokemon and people live together in relative harmony. The story starts outside the city limits, with Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), a 22-year-old insurance adjuster who has given up his dream of becoming a champion Pokemon trainer. After the death of his father in a mysterious accident, Tim heads to Ryme City to set his dad’s affairs in order, only to discover an amnesiac Pokemon lurking in his father’s office: the yellow critter known as Pikachu. Though Pokemon can normally only articulate variations of their own names — e.g., pika pika — this

‘Pokemon Detective Pikachu’ (PG, 104 min.) DIRECTOR: Rob Letterman STARS: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy IN A NUTSHELL: A failed Pokemon trainer tries to get to the bottom of his father’s death with the help of Pikachu’s investigative prowess.

particular specimen (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) can talk, and he convinces Tim to try to get to the bottom of his father’s death. Here’s where “Blade Runner” comes in. Just as Ridley Scott created a film-noir vision of the future — all neon lights and crowded streets — director

Rob Letterman has rendered a dizzyingly complex and visually dazzling Ryme City. The movie embraces other noir tropes as well, down to the snappy dialogue and trenchcoat-clad femme (not quite) fatale: a BuzzFeed-style journalist (Kathryn Newton). It’s a clever kind of worldbuilding. Although the screenplay isn’t terribly innovative, Smith makes for a compelling straight man to Reynolds’ caffeine-obsessed Pikachu. Is “Detective Pikachu” a movie for everyone? Hardly. But it’s way better than it should be. It seems that when you take a little yellow creature with a heart of gold and turn him into a soft-boiled detective, something special is in the cards. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

‘Shadow’ Unrated, 116 min.

Designed in a palette of foggy gray tones, with the only dashes of color coming from flushed skin, spilled blood and candle flames, the story of a warrior and his body double (both played by Deng Chao) is gorgeous. But while “Shadow’s” story is a pretty enough meditation on the notion of twinning and opposites, it sometimes forgets that we have to care about its characters to stay with it. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

‘Dogman’ Unrated, 102 min.

Marcello Fonte plays a dog groomer living in a decrepit Italian beach town, where he has a business tending to an eclectic canine clientele, while dealing coke on the side. Directed and co-written by Matteo Garrone, “Dogman” exhibits his observant style, which favors long takes in which human behavior is framed within an expressive environment. ANN HORNADAY (TWP)

J.R.R. Tolkien (Nicholas Hoult), left, must’ve gotten the inspiration for Hobbits by having such short friends.

In ‘Tolkien,’ fellowship goes ever on and on The coming-of-age tale ‘Tolkien’ (PG-13, 112 min.) explores the bonds that DIRECTOR: Dome Karukoski STARS: Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, shaped the author’s life Colm Meaney, Derek Jacobi FILM REVIEW By virtue of its marketing campaign (and, um, its name), the film “Tolkien” suggests that it is a portrait of the formative years of J.R.R. Tolkien, the English author of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings.” And while it certainly is a literary coming-ofage story — Nicholas Hoult plays J.R.R., or Ronald, as a young man, with Harry Gilby covering his teenage years — it is also very much a movie about three other young men, or at least Tolkien’s relationship to them. Those men are: Geoffrey Bache Smith, Robert Quilter Gilson and Christopher Wiseman, who with Tolkien called themselves the Tea Club and Barrovian Society (or T.C.B.S.) when the four met as teenage friends at King Edward’s School in Birmingham. “Tolkien” is a tale structured, like its subject’s books, around fellowship. Just

IN A NUTSHELL: As a young man, J.R.R. Tolkien forms the brotherly connections that would ultimately shape his “Lord of the Rings” saga.

don’t expect action and adventure. The movie is a capable and attractive enough biopic, if also less than riveting cinema. Directed by Dome Karukoski, the film jumps back and forth between World War I France, where Tolkien served as an officer, and the aspiring author’s school days at King Edward’s and Oxford. Between all the intercutting, “Tolkien” leans heavily on a single point: Imagination served as an escape. In the horrors of war, some of the battle scenes are staged as if Karukoski were channeling Peter Jackson: Smoke, fire and enemy combatants resemble hallucinatory dragons and ringwraiths, in Tolkien’s imagination.

These war scenes make for a sturdy framing device for the narrative, but it’s the Oxford scenes that serve as the meat of the movie. It’s during those passages that “Tolkien” explores the hero’s courtship with his future wife (Lily Collins) and his deepening friendship with the other members of the T.C.B.S. Although “Tolkien” presents the bond among the T.C.B.S. as brotherly, one relationship, it suggests, was particularly special: that between Tolkien and Anthony Boyle’s doomed poet Geoffrey, whose longing looks in Tolkien’s direction hint of an unrequited romantic attraction. Before the film’s release, the late author’s estate released a statement saying that Tolkien’s family members “do not endorse it or its content in any way.” Their reasons are left unstated, and it should be noted that the family had yet to even seen the film. Still, “Tolkien” is anodyne enough that no one should be terribly upset by it, let alone deeply moved in any other way. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Netflix to release “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” interactive special in 2020

“An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. … You’ve shown that the movie industry is not only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever!” JAMES CAMERON,

congratulating producer Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios on the box office success of “Avengers: Endgame.” The Marvel blockbuster became the second-highest grossing film of all time globally earlier this week, surpassing “Titanic’s” $2.2 billion haul. Cameron’s “Avatar” remains at No. 1, with a $2.8 billion global gross.

Emily Dickinson gets an uneven, eccentric biopic FILM REVIEW With the Emily Dickinson biopic “Wild Nights With Emily,” the writer-director Madeleine Olnek argues a very particular point. Buttressed by a trove of letters left behind by the Belle of Amherst to her sister-in-law, Susan Gilbert Dickinson, the film suggests that the poet was involved in a lesbian relationship with her brother’s wife. Great fodder for sketch comedy, right? Comedian Molly Shannon stars as Emily. When we first meet her, she shares a passionate kiss with Susan (Susan Ziegler). The scene is played more for laughs than erotic tension. Such physical comedy is at odds with other scenes in which the character is taken much more seriously: as a gay writer whose goal of publication was frustrated by men. Writer Thomas Wentworth Higginson (Brett Gelman) — Emily’s literary mentor, who published her poetry only after her death — is shown performing heavy “surgery,” as she calls it, to make her verse’s often eccentric punctuation conform to convention. “Wild Nights” largely sidesteps the worst tropes of biographical drama, but when it falls, it falls hard. Most notably, the film goes too far at times, threatening to reduce the writer’s life to the punchline of a literary version of Rodney Dangerfield: She got no respect. PAT PADUA (TWP)

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

‘The Farewell’

EXPECTED RELEASE: July 2

EXPECTED RELEASE: July 12

SUMMARY: Peter Parker is back and wearing a kicky new suit in the trailer that’s full of spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame.” After [spoiler], Spidey feels the need to [spoiler], the result of [spoiler]. And he’s going to do it while on a school trip, which means he’ll have to sneak away from the chaperones to fight [spoiler]. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

SUMMARY: Awkwafina stars in this based-on-atrue-story (just not her story) about a Chinese American woman who goes to China to say goodbye to her terminally ill grandma — who doesn’t know she’s terminally ill. This trailer will definitely not make you tear up or even cry at your desk, so you should watch it at work! Try it! K.P.K.

@TWILGAMING, criticizing a shirt sold by the senator’s campaign. Don Blankenship coined the “Cocaine Mitch” moniker in a campaign ad during his failed Senate run from West Virginia last year, referencing questionable reports that McConnell’s father-in-law’s shipping company was once involved in smuggling cocaine. Many found the shirt in poor taste.

“THIS PUP IS INNOCENT JESSE. IF A BEAR GIVES U A GIFT U ACCEPT IT GRACIOUSLY. YOUR PUP IS JUST BEING POLITE.” @DARTH, replying to @JesseNeon’s

complaint that his dog, Brick, had struck up a deal with a bear in his neighborhood. @JesseNeon said Brick’s job is to bark and keep animals — like bears — away. However, this bear and Brick seem to have an arrangement: Brick lets the bear raid the trash, and the bear gives him deer bones in return.

“Because nothing matters anymore, and nobody has any shame left, Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign is selling ‘Cocaine Mitch’ T-shirts.”

“You mean to tell me some people don’t find this tweet [from] Danny Baker offensive?” @CALVINMCCRIMON4, blasting supporters of the former BBC DJ. Baker

was fired Thursday after tweeting a photo of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee that he captioned, “Royal baby leaves hospital.” The image appeared to be a racist reference to Archie, the first child of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Meghan is biracial and has been the target of racist smears from some U.K. outlets. FOX NEWS

“Surely not just 10 eggs and a bit of toast. There has to be a plate stacked with 30 pieces of bacon on that table somewhere.” @HOOLIELULU, tweeting about a

man who appeared to have ordered a serving of 10 eggs at a Milwaukee, Wis., diner in a Wednesday segment of “Fox & Friends.” However, many noticed the same helping appeared in shots of different diners, leading viewers to believe it was a prop.

“Quite an honor for the Red Socks. Such a storied club, and that rivalry with the Yankys is epic.” @CHRISINROCH, joking about the White House misspelling the name of the World Series champions ahead of the team’s Thursday visit. In a now-corrected website announcement, the White House referred to the Boston baseball franchise as the “Red Socks.” The correct spelling is “Red Sox.”

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

“Maybe I need to give you some bribe money to grease the college wheels. … Are you people morons?”

Hilary Duff announced in an Instagram post on Thursday that she and singer/songwriter Matthew Koma are engaged. “He asked me to be his wife,” the “Younger” actress captioned the post. Page Six estimated Duff’s ring to be about 3-carats and worth between $45,000 and $50,000. According to People, Duff, 31, and Koma, 31, first started dating in early 2017. They have a daughter, Banks Violet Blair, who was born in late October. Duff also has a 7-year-old son named Luca Cruz, with ex-husband Mike Comrie, whom she separated from in 2014. (EXPRESS)
