The Massachusetts Department of Transportation on Friday changed that by posting messages on electronic highway signs around the city that read: “Changing Lanes? Use Yah Blinkah.” “Blinkah” is how Bostonians pronounce “blinker,” otherwise known as a turn signal. (AP) OH, BOTHER

A New Way to Talk Things Out Crisis negotiators are turning to texting to defuse situations Police negotiator Andres Wells was doing all he could to keep a suspect from committing suicide after a gas-station robbery and 100-mph chase. But the man kept cutting phone calls short and pointing his handgun to his head. About 10 minutes after the last hang up, Wellsâ€™ cellphone chimed. It was a text from the suspect. â€œPlease call Amie,â€? the message said, followed by the number of the manâ€™s girlfriend. Wells was taken aback. In three years as a negotiator with the Kalamazoo, Mich., police, heâ€™d always relied on spoken give-andtake, taking cues from a personâ€™s tone of voice, the inďŹ‚ections, emotions. Heâ€™d never thought about negotiating via text. â€œIt had never even been brought up at one of our training,â€? Wells recalled of the 2011 case.
MARK BUGNASKI (AP)
Police negotiator Andres Wells says itâ€™s harder to negotiate with suspects via text.
â€œHe didnâ€™t want to talk as much as he wanted to text.â€? â€” Erie County Sheriffâ€™s Capt. Gregory Savage, of New York, on a suspect who surrendered after negotiating with deputies via text in March
With billions of text messages exchanged daily in the U.S., law enforcement ofďŹ cers are increasingly being called upon to defuse violent, unpredictable situations
through the typed word. Experts say itâ€™s happened enough in the past ďŹ ve years to warrant specialized training. But in Wellsâ€™ case, he had to adapt on the ďŹ‚y. â€œWhat do you want me to tell her?â€? he texted back. â€œThe truth,â€? Jesse Cook wrote. While Wells ordinarily would rely on a skill called â€œactive listening,â€? he couldnâ€™t hear Cookâ€™s voice. Was he yelling? Crying? Wells tried to show Cook empathy and build trust. He texted that
he understood the unemployed veteran was trying to provide for his girlfriend and daughter when he robbed the gas station. There was no response. A minute later, Wells typed, â€œThis doesnâ€™t have to go down like this.â€? Again, nothing. â€œDo you need anything? Water? Food?â€? Wells tried after another minute. Finally, a reply. â€œWater,â€? Cook wrote. â€œAs soon as he wrote water, I thought, â€˜OK, I can work with this,â€™ â€? Wells said. Wells asked Cook to roll down his window so an ofďŹ cer could toss a bottle of water into his SUV. â€œThis guy throws like a girl,â€? Wells texted, ďŹ shing for Cookâ€™s state of mind. â€œThanks. He does throw like a girl,â€? Cook wrote afterward. Then a smiley face. It was the cue Wells had been waiting for, proof Cook had relaxed enough to perhaps resume talking by phone. â€œCan I call u?â€? Wells then asked Cook. â€œOK,â€? Cook replied. He surr e nde r e d 1 5 m i nut e s l a t e r. CAROLYN THOMPSON (AP)

Gay Marriage in Limbo in Ark. 15 licenses given out after judge strikes ban; state will appeal
primary-election voting but staffers said they were not prepared to issue marriage licenses. Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza paved the way for the marriages Friday with a ruling that removed a 10-year-old barrier, saying a constitutional amendment overwhelmingly passed by voters in 2004 banning gay marriage was “an unconstitutional attempt to narrow the deﬁnition of equality.” Piazza’s ruling also overturned a 1997 state law banning gay marriage. McDaniel has asked Piazza to suspend his ruling and said late Saturday that he wants the state Supreme Court to take up the matter. That appeal has not yet been ﬁled. But because Piazza didn’t issue a stay, Arkansas’ 75 county clerks were left to decide for themselves whether to grant marriage licenses. CHRISTINA HUYNH (AP)

Spokane, Wash. The green-cross storefronts of medical marijuana dispensaries are common in much of Washington, and the state is plowing ahead with licensing people to grow and sell recreational pot to adults. But a federal trial set to begin in the coming weeks for ﬁve people in Spokane, Wash., suggests that not all is OK with weed in the state. Larry Harvey, a 70-year-old medical marijuana patient with no criminal history, three of his relatives and a family friend each face mandatory minimum sentences of 10 years in prison after they were caught growing about 70 pot plants on their rural property.
NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS (AP)
Washington State Pot Grower Faces 10 Years
If convicted, Larry Harvey, 70, faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.
The Harveys had guns at their home, which is part of the reason for the lengthy possible prison time. They say the weapons were for hunting and protection, but prosecutors say two were loaded and in the same room as a tub of pot.
“This case is another glaring example of what’s wrong with the federal policy on cannabis.” — K A RI BOITER, WASHINGTON STATE COORDINATOR FOR THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA GROUP “AMERICANS FOR SAFE ACCESS,” ON THE HARVEYS’ CASE
Medical marijuana advocates have cried foul, arguing that the prosecution violates Department of Justice policies announced last year that nonviolent, small-time drug offenders shouldn’t face lengthy prison sentences. A spokes-
man for the U.S. Attorney’s Ofﬁce in Spokane said he could not discuss the trial or the ofﬁce’s general approach to pot crimes. But the case illustrates discrepancies in how law enforcement ofﬁcials are handling marijuana cases as Washington — with the Justice Department’s blessing — moves ahead with its grand experiment in pot legalization. Medical marijuana gardens the size of the Harveys’ rarely draw attention from authorities in the Seattle area. But under federal law, marijuana remains illegal, and what licensed growers in the state are doing differs little from what Harvey and his family did. NICHOL AS K. GER ANIOS AND GENE JOHNSON (AP)

Thailand Warns People Away From Protest Sites Thailand’s caretaker government said Sunday that it would tighten security to prevent clashes that could arise between the two sides in an escalating political crisis, and warned people to stay away from protest sites for their own safety. The announcement was broadcast on television as pro-government and anti-government protesters held competing rallies in Bangkok over the weekend. The two groups were several miles apart, but concerns of violence have risen following a court’s ouster of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra last week. (AP) CAIRO

Turnout high, but not among foes of sovereignty measure
Donetsk, Ukraine Ninet y percent of voters in a key industrial region in eastern Ukraine came out in favor of sovereignty Sunday, pro-Russian insurgents said in announcing preliminary results of a twin referendum that is certain to deepen the turmoil in the country. Roman Lyagin, election chief of the self-styled Donetsk People’s Republic, said around 75 percent of the Donetsk region’s 3 million or so eligible voters cast ballots, and the vast majority backed sovereignty. “We are just saying to the world that we want changes, we want to be heard,” Lyagin said. With no international election monitors in place, it was all but impossible to verify the insurgents’ claims. The preliminary vote count was announced just two hours after

the polls closed in an election conducted with paper ballots.

Moscow of orchestrating the unrest in a possible attempt to grab another piece of the country weeks after the annexation of Crimea.

Abductee Scared to Go to School Bauchi, Nigeria One of the teenagers who escaped from Islamic extremists who abducted more than 300 schoolgirls says the kidnapping was “too terrifying for words,” and she is now scared to go back to school. Sarah Lawan, a 19-year-old science student, spoke Sunday as Nigerians in churches across the nation prayed for the safety of the 276 students still held captive. Their prayers were joined by Pope Francis. Lawan said more of the girls could have escaped but that they were frightened by their captors’ threats to shoot them. “I am pained that my other colleagues could not summon the courage to run away with me,” Lawan said. “Now I cry each time I come across their parents and see

appeared likely to stay away from the polls rather than risk drawing attention to themselves. Darya, a medical worker who would not give her last name, said she saw no point in casting a ballot, since the vote had no legal force. “There were no notices about this referendum anywhere, about where and when it was happening,” she said. “In any case, it is not valid, so there was no reason to take part.” PETER LEONARD (AP)
Iran Promises Nuke Openness
The president of Nigeria for weeks refused international help to search for more than 300 girls abducted from a school by Islamic extremists, one in a series of missteps that have led to international outrage against the government. The delay underlines what has been a problem in the attempt to find the girls: an apparent lack of urgency on the part of the government and military, for reasons that include a reluctance to bring in outsiders as well as possible infiltration by extremists.

Iran President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday his country would not surrender what it considers its right to nuclear development in upcoming talks with world powers, but that it would be “transparent” in negotiations over the contested program.

While the moderate Rouhani and Iran’s negotiators have the backing of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, hard-liners increasingly criticize the deal as giving up too much while gaining too little from the West.

Some people are born lucky. Parents in China, however, would rather not leave their kids’ fate to chance. For the past few weeks, many couples have been trying desperately to conceive, racing against time to have a baby in the fortuitous Year of the Horse. Their reasoning: No one wants a baby born in 2015, the dreaded Year of the Sheep. Sheep are meek creatures, raised for nothing more than slaughter. Babies born in the Year of the Sheep, therefore, will grow up to be followers rather than leaders, according to some superstitions. The children are destined for heartbreak and failed marriages, many Chinese believe. One popular folk saying holds that only one out of 10 people born in the Year of the Sheep ﬁnds happiness. Health professionals say fertility
consultations have spiked in recent months. Some doctors even have expressed worries that there may be a corresponding jump in abortions later this year, as couples realize they missed the horse-year cutoff. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Year of the Sheep (also called goat or ram) begins Feb. 19, 2015, so the window for conception closes around the end of this month. Some doubt the furor will have a signiﬁcant effect on the Chinese birthrate this year. But the babymania is so widespread that the state-run China News Service issued a report trying to debunk the “unfounded” myth of bad luck for those born in Year of the Sheep. “We try our best to dissuade couples from believing the sheep superstitions,” one ofﬁcial at China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention said. But the medical professionals do not have an easy sell. The ofﬁcial said that even her colleagues at the center are obsessed with the supposed luck a horse year brings.

Where Are Metro’s Most Walkable Stations? Washington In trying to make the case for billions of dollars in capacity upgrades in coming years, Metro officials are not arguing only that the improvements will enhance train service but that Metro is critical to making neighborhoods more walkable, and thus more attractive to businesses, home buyers and apartment renters. The agency recently posted some data about the most- and least-walkable stations, based in part on the
Military & Maritime Gifts & Relics
availability of sidewalks, pedestrian bridges, crosswalks and the like. This isn’t really a measure of whether there are jobs, homes, shopping or restaurants within walking distance of the stations, but a measure of whether a passenger coming to or from the station can easily walk to whatever is there. The value of living or working near Metro has never been so acute, with researchers ﬁnding last year that ofﬁces within one-20th of a mile (264 feet) of a station earn a more than 30 percent premium in rents over those that are a quarter of a mile from a station. Washington’s current building boom is largely fueled by apart-
• Retirement & promotion gifts • flag cases • pen sets • ships clocks • barometers • ships bells & wheels • military ball caps • nautical gifts
Track Walk How much of the area within a half-mile of the Metro station can you walk to?
22% - 35% 36% - 50% 51% - 65% 66% - 80% 81% - 100%
Agency hopes some areas will improve pedestrian amenities
ments near Metro stations, and more than 80 percent of the ofﬁce space being built in the region is within a quarter mile of a station. Metro wants to make the value of that accessibility clear to local leaders, so it is trying to encourage and assist local jurisdictions by making the areas around their stations more pedestrian friendly. Shyam Kannan, director of planning for Metro, writes “Some of the station areas have excellent coverage … while others have so many gaps in the network that getting from the station to any type of amenity (housing, retail, ofﬁce, parks, churches) is virtually impossible.” JONATHAN O’CONNELL (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Deadly Balloon Crash Claims Three Lives Doswell, Va. As University of Richmond students participated in graduation ceremonies Sunday, state and local police finished a massive search for the third victim of a fiery balloon crash that has devastated the school’s women’s basketball team. The badly burned remains of a woman’s body was found Sunday about 100 yards away from where one of the other two victim’s charred bodies was found the day
before, Virginia State Police said. None of the victims in the Friday crash near Doswell, Va., have been identiﬁed pending a medical examiner’s report, ofﬁcials said. But university officials have conﬁrmed that both Ginny Doyle, 44, associate head women’s basketball coach, and Natalie Lewis, 24, the team’s director of basketball operations, were inside the balloon’s gondola when the craft went down. The balloon’s pilot — whom an ofﬁcial identiﬁed as Daniel Kirk, 65 — also was on board. The balloon, one of 13 that took ﬂight Friday evening as part of an event in advance of a Mid-Atlantic Balloon Festival, evidently struck a
D.C. Landmark Reopens Washington The cracks have been repaired. The stone has been patched. The elevator is fixed. The 500 tons of scaffolding have been down for weeks, and the lawn is freshly mowed. Today, 994 days since an earthquake shook the Washington Monument from top to bottom, the marble-and-granite national landmark reopens to the public. Tours resume at 1 p.m., following a 10 a.m. reopening ceremony. Since the August afternoon 2½ years ago when terriﬁed tourists ﬂed from the shaking observation level 500 feet up, an estimated 1.5 million people have been deprived of the spectacular view and a major stop on visits to D.C.

Shh! Arlington Passes Noise Law Arlington After hearing persistent complaints about the lack of peace and quiet in some high-rise mixed-use districts along the livelier byways of Arlington, the County Board on Saturday substantially tightened its noise control ordinances to target human outbursts for the first time. The law, which goes into effect July 1, bars any person from “yelling, wailing, shouting or scream-
ing” from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. seven days a week t hroughout t he 27 square-mile burg. The tightened ordinance is even harder on mixed-use districts in the county: Between midnight and 9 a.m., any group of four or more whose celebrations in these areas result in yells, wails, shouts or screams that can be heard inside a residence more than 100 feet away will be violating the law.

power line, a National Transportation Safety Board spokesman said. The pilot attempted to vent the balloon and take other measures to bring it down before the gondola and balloon separated in ﬂames amid cries for help, witnesses told investigators. Kirk, of Hartly, Del., had been a commercial pilot since the 1980s and owned and operated a Delaware-based balloon-riding company called Starship Adventures, according to the company’s website. The accident was an emotional blow to the Spiders basketball program, which Doyle joined fresh out of high school. Lewis was a native of Buffalo, N.Y., who swam for the
Backstory Accidents involving hot-air balloons are rare in the United States, where pilots are required to have a Federal Aviation Administration certificate and a balloon rating in order to fly. The National Transportation Safety Board has investigated 772 hot-air balloon crashes and incidents in the country since 1964. Of those, fewer than 70 were fatal. The last fatal crash in the Washington region was June 6, 1987, when a balloon hit a power line and exploded near Gaithersburg, Md., killing a 16-year-old and seriously injuring her father. (T WP)
Spiders and graduated in 2011. “We are all stunned by the tragic news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their loved ones,” said athletic director Keith Gill. Spiders head coach Michael Shafer organized the outing to the festival with his colleagues. Shafer and his two daughters were in a separate balloon and landed safely. The balloon festival was canceled after the crash. Instead, more than 100 rescue workers searched for the bodies along a portion of Caroline County, Va., that was three miles long and a quarter mile wide, said state police.

You Can Call Him Dr. Combs Washington Rap and music mogul Sean Combs electrified Howard University’s Class of 2014 on Saturday with a commencement speech that was thoughtful, funny and, surprisingly, sentimental. “I have rushed through some of my great moments,” he told the crowd, clearly savoring the occasion. “I promised myself if I ever reached this moment I would take my time.” That’s right folks — the man of many monikers — Sean John, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and very brieﬂy, Swag, has added a new one, now that he has an honorary doctorate. “Only this family could take one of its sons who already had three name changes and give him a fourth — Dr. Sean Combs.” Combs told the audience that enrolling at Howard changed his life. And although he left the university before graduating, he never forgot his Howard family. The con-

The Making of a Scandal We may be months away from the 2014 midterm elections, but the bickering between Democrats and Republicans is already heating up, and the GOP is taking the lead by experimenting with a number of perceived Obama administration scandals/failures as its talking points. Here’s a quick guide to them. JAIME FULLER (THE WASHINGTON POST )
MARK WILSON (GETTY IMAGES)
During the 2010 and 2012 election cycles, the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative organizations seeking taxexempt status for heightened scrutiny. IRS official Lois Lerner found out and stopped the procedures. Recently, the House Lerner began pressing Lerner — who retired last year — for more details, and she refused. Members held her in contempt of Congress last week.
Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., front, and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., have been vocal proponents of Benghazi investigations.
Benghazi The attacks on the United States’ consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012 — which ended with the deaths of four U.S. diplomats — have been used as a political rallying cry since just weeks before President Barack Obama’s re-election in November 2012, with the GOP alleging incompetence and possible cover-ups by the White House. Last week, the Republican-led House voted to create a 12-member select committee to investigate the response to the attacks. “Benghazi” is shaping up as a byword of this fall’s midterm election. Who’s pushing this? Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.; and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have been among the most vocal proponents of additional investigations. House Speaker John Boehner was a crucial factor in finally getting the select committee formed. But, really, mostly everyone in the Republican Party is pushing this. What does the White House say? White House Press Secretary Jay Carney noted that there have been seven different investigations into the attacks, as well as 13 hearings. What does the right say? “I have said from Day One, I want this to transcend politics, and I want it to in-
“They are clearly doing this to drive their turnout.” — Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday
spire trust,” said Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the select committee’s chairman, on “Fox News Sunday.” What does the public say? Not surprisingly, opinions on Benghazi fall on partisan lines, as a Pew Research poll from May 2013 shows. Fifteen percent of Republicans and
62 percent of Democrats polled said the Obama administration has been honest about Benghazi; 8 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Democrats said the Republicans have gone too far with their hearings. Could this affect upcoming elections? That’s unclear. Scandals tend to have a dampening effect on the party of the president, but the investigations haven’t turned up anything scandalous yet. Gowdy has said the committee could last until 2016; when the Pew Research Center released a survey about Hillary Rodham Clinton, presumed 2016 presidential candidate, last week, it revealed that Benghazi is the biggest negative in her career.
‘Obamacare’ Repeal, revise, revile — the Republican Party has tried getting rid of the Affordable Care Act using every method in the book since it passed in 2010. The House has voted to repeal the legislation more than 50 times. Republican outside groups have spent millions on ads bashing Democratic lawmakers for supporting the law. The GOP thinks low public opinion of the Affordable Care Act in 10 close Senate races might be their key to victory. Who’s pushing this? Nearly everyone in the Republican Party — especially the Senate candidates running against vulnerable incumbent Democrats. But “Obamacare” is mentioned far less often now by Republicans than it was before high coverage numbers were announced.
Who’s pushing this? Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has been at the lead of the investigations. The House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer Lerner to criminal prosecution last month on a party-line vote. But, really, most Republicans have been supportive of further IRS investigations.
What do “Obamacare” supporters say? Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, one of the most prominent “Obamacare” supporters because he leads a relatively conservative state, said after more than 400,000 Kentuckians signed up: “We’re going to keep enrolling people until everybody in Kentucky who needs health coverage has it.”
“[This is] a step toward a level of accountability that the Obama administration has been unwilling to take.”
What does the public say? They are sending mixed messages. While more than 8 million people signed up for the Affordable Care Act, a recent Pew poll shows that many don’t like the law very much. A majority think the law has fallen short of expectations. At the moment, however, the public still trusts Democrats and President Barack Obama more on health care than Republicans.
— Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., on the vote holding Lerner in contempt
What does the left say? Democrats have mostly kept clear of the battle. What does the public say? In May 2013, a Quinnipiac University poll found that the public considered the IRS scandal a bigger deal than Benghazi. Could this affect upcoming elections? Doubtful. The president and most Democrats have distanced themselves from the IRS on this, so Lerner and her department alone seem destined to take the heat.
Could this affect upcoming elections? Maybe. Based on the millions of dollars candidates and Republican outside groups have spent against Democratic candidates citing their support of the Affordable Care Act, Republicans sure think so.

Gruden Weighs in on Draft ELSA (GETTY IMAGES)
Redskins coach says he feels good about the team’s eight picks Redskins
NFC East Draft Grades C+
The 2014 NFL draft is now in the books, and the Redskins wound up adding eight players — some of whom could wind up meeting long-term needs. Redskins coach Jay Gruden spoke on each player, and discussed how the decision-makers currently envision the prospects ﬁtting into the big picture. Here’s a rundown of Gruden’s assessment.
They passed on Cyrus Kouandjio in the second round to trade down for outside linebacker Trent Murphy, who’s stuck for now behind Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. Can a 3-13 team without a first-round pick afford such a luxury? They got potential starting offensive linemen in Morgan Moses and Spencer Long.
On the draft as a whole: “We’re
happy with where we ended with the draft; we got some good draft picks. Moving forward with this football team, we feel like we have good, strong competition at every spot and we’ll add some free agents also and fill out our 90-man roster and go from there.”

The Redskins drafted linebacker Trent Murphy, left, in the second round and running back Lache Seastrunk in the sixth round.
On second-round pick OLB Trent Murphy: “We saw in Trent Mur-
phy another guy that can rush a passer. He’s a proven pass rusher — 14-and-a-half sacks this year. He led the country in sacks. He works his tail off. He’s first on the field every day and the last to leave.”
On third-round pick OT Morgan Moses: “We like Morgan. He’s
On fourth-round pick CB Bashaud Breeland: “A heck of a corner, very
long. He’s a big kid. He’s played a lot of football. He’s played both the left side and the right side in his career. He’s got a major upside.”
technically sound, but also we think he’s going to be a very good special teams football player.”
On third-round pick G Spencer Long: On how Murphy will be used: “More
so the nickel packages. … Coach [Jim] Haslett has a lot of plans for him, but coming in right now, he’s going to line up obviously at outside linebacker, back up Ryan [Kerrigan] and Brian [Orakpo] and provide us with some depth at that position.”
“We feel good about his recovery [from MCL/PCL surgery]. … Tough, tenacious offensive linemen are hard to find — big, physical guys that love football. That’s kind of the motto. All three of these guys that we drafted have football as one of their top priorities in life.”
On ﬁfth-round pick WR Ryan Grant:
“He’s great hands catcher. He’s a good route runner. He can play inside and outside. We’re surprised that he was there.” On sixth-round pick RB Lache Seastrunk: “Obviously, [he] is an
interesting guy because of his speed. … The only weird thing about him is he didn’t catch any balls at Baylor, but they just
don’t throw to their backs. We feel like he can catch the ball good enough.” On seventh-round pick TE Ted Bolser: “He is a solid tight end,
got good hands. He’s played outside, he’s played fullback, he has played tight end in the core. … But really what kind of stuck out, he runs down on kickoff like a war daddy.” On seventh-round pick K Zach Hocker: “[We] liked leg strength.
… He’ll come in and compete for the kicking spot.” MIKE JONES ( THE WASHINGTON POST )
Obama Congratulates Sam: President Barack Obama offered his congratulations to Michael Sam on being the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. The historic moment came Saturday when Sam, left, an All-America defensive end at the University of Missouri, was taken by the St. Louis Rams with the eighth-tolast pick. “The President congratulates Michael Sam, the Rams and the NFL for taking an important step forward today in our Nation’s journey,” the White House said in a statement emailed to reporters (via ABC News). (T WP)
COWBOYS They showed restraint by passing on quarterback Johnny Manziel but, with Tony Romo now 34, will they eventually regret that? They addressed big needs on their offensive line with Zack Martin and in their pass rush with defensive end Demarcus Lawrence.
EAGLES It’s debatable whether defensive end Marcus Smith was worth the 26th overall pick. The Eagles added a pair of early-round wide receivers in Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, but they didn’t seem to get a wideout dynamic enough to offset the loss of DeSean Jackson.
GIANTS The Giants made a bold first-round pick by going with wideout Odell Beckham Jr., above, but they didn’t come away with a top tackle. They did add to the interior of the offensive line with center Weston Richburg and fortified the defensive line with Jay Bromley. MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Clippers Rally to Top Thunder NBA Darren Collison scored 8 of his 18 points in the final 2:58, rallying the Los Angeles Clippers past the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on Sunday to tie the Western Conference semifinal series 2-2. Russell Westbrook, who scored 27 points, missed a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka’s tip attempt was too late at the buzzer, allowing the Clippers to salvage a game they trailed until the ﬁnal 1:23. Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 25 points, making 9 of 11 free throws, and Chris Paul had 23 points and 10 assists. Jamal Crawford added 18 points. DeAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds, helping the Clippers win the boards, 45-43 — the ﬁrst time in 11 playoff games the Thunder were outrebounded. Kevin Durant scored 40 points, hitting 15 of 18 free throws, for the Thunder. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. (AP)
Late: Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Wizards and Pacers ended after Express’ deadline. For complete coverage, visit washingtonpost.com
NBA LeBron James understands it will take time, but he wants Donald Sterling out of the NBA. And he said Sunday that NBA players believe nobody in Sterling’s family should be able to own the Los Angeles Clippers if he’s gone. Sterling has been banned for life for making racist comments and Commissioner Adam Silver has urged owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise. But Silver said no decisions had been made about the rest of Sterling’s family. Shelly Sterling, Sterling’s estranged wife, said she intends to keep her 50 percent of the franchise. “As players, we want what’s right and we don’t feel like no one in his family should be able to own the team,” James said after the Miami Heat practiced for today’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semiﬁnals against Brooklyn.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat hold a 2-1 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets.
But Shelly Sterling told ABC News’ Barbara Walters that she doesn’t believe she should be punished for what her husband said. “I will ﬁght that decision,” she
said in the interview. “To be honest with you, I’m wondering if a wife of one of the owners, and there’s 30 owners, did something like that, said those racial slurs, would they
oust the husband? Or would they leave the husband in?” James was one of the ﬁrst and strongest voices to speak out after a recording of Donald Sterling’s remarks to V. Stiviano were posted on TMZ’s website last month, saying the comments were unacceptable and that there was no place in the league for Sterling. The league is trying to act quickly to remove him. Dick Parsons has been installed as the Clippers’ interim CEO, and the owners’ advisory/ﬁnance committee has held conference calls each of the past two weeks to discuss that process and timeline for a forced sale. That would require a threefourths vote of owners. But Sterling, who bought the team in 1981 and is the NBA’s longest-tenured owner, could choose to ﬁght those attempts by the league. “At the end of the day, this is going to be a long litigation when it comes to that,” James said. “This guy who’s owned the team since the ’80s is not going to just give the team up in a day. So we understand it’s going to be long, but we want what’s right.” BRIAN MAHONEY (AP)
Nationals Place LaRoche on DL Baseball As expected, the Nationals officially placed first baseman Adam LaRoche on the 15-day disabled list with a right quad strain, retroactive to Saturday, and recalled first baseman-outfielder Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse. LaRoche played through his quad injury for nearly two weeks until he suffered a setback on Friday night and couldn’t complete a game as a designated hitter. Moore was sent down on Wednesday but could be recalled without waiting the mandated 10 days because he is replacing an injured player. Moore played one game for Syracuse while

With LaRoche’s injury, now ﬁve of the Nationals’ eight lineup regulars have landed on the disabled list this season. The Nationals have stayed afloat despite injuries to and disabled list stints for Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman, Denard Span, Wilson Ramos and Doug Fister. Span, Fister and Ramos have returned, the last two this week, but LaRoche may be the Nationals’ gut punch. LaRoche has posted a 158 OPS+, which is adjusted to the ballparks.

Liverpool finishes second — two points behind in standings Soccer Manchester City won the Premier League for the second time in three seasons with a 2-0 victory over West Ham on Sunday that required far less drama than two years ago. City won behind goals from Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany, meaning Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Newcastle at Anﬁeld was meaningless and City ﬁnished two points above the Merseyside club. As soon as the ﬁnal whistle was blown, thousands of fans ﬂooded the Etihad Stadium ﬁeld, setting off blue ﬂares.

a league title. In 2012, City won the title on goal difference ahead of neighbor Manchester United after coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers on the ﬁnal day. “You can’t repeat what happened last time,” City goalkeeper Joe Hart said. “This year, we’ve really come on strong at the end when we needed to.” Just 15 years ago, City was playing in the third tier of English soccer, but the club’s fortunes were transformed after the inﬂux of Abu Dhabi cash following a 2008 takeover. Making this victory all the sweeter is the fact that United, which beat City to the title by 11 points last May, ended this season in seventh place after imploding in the post-Alex Ferguson era. City spent just 15 days in first place during a season when the lead changed hands 25 times. But Manuel Pellegrini’s club surged to the top when it mattered most. ROB HARRIS (AP)

tion program at George Washington University (tspppa.gwu.edu), which he bills as “an MBA for the public sector.” So Mastria’s not studying statutes or learning to argue in court. He’s learning the administrative skills he will need to influence policy. The program is just one of several in the D.C. area that is offering a more unconventional route to making a difference in the policy world. American University, for example, offers an “applied politics” track within its master’s in public policy program that allows students to dive deeper into political-campaign management and lobbying. It also offers a track on women in politics. Similarly, there is a black pol-
itics track in Howard University’s graduate program in political science (coas.howard.edu). It’s known around the country not just as a center for students interested in African-American political movements, but as a program that instills a sense of mission in students, says Jonathan W. Hutto, 37. “In a more general political science program, there is a strong focus on getting published,” says Hutto, a second-year doctoral student in the program, which also offers a master’s track. “But the focus of the black politics track is not so much about meeting the demands of the academy.” Hutto is planning to become a professor, while many of his colleagues are aiming for jobs in local and federal government, including Continued on page 22

the Foreign Service. Hutto says the grounding in black politics helps them serve as public administrators, because the program’s emphasis gives them historic context. “We look at how past ideologies are relevant today,” he says, meaning how political movements — say, for example, abolition or civil rights — relate to modern problems. Professor Lorenzo Morris has been teaching in the black politics track since 1982. He says many students drift to the program because of their interest in the global African experience and tend to go on to careers in social and foreign policy. “Most students in public policy areas have to deﬁne the [larger
policy] issues,” Morris says, noting that the program is designed to encourage critical thinking. Such skills then help students address those problems and expand their positions. The program also takes advantage of Washington as the backdrop for Howard’s campus. Students seek out internships in the city and take a class that focuses speciﬁcally on D.C. politics. GW’s public administration program similarly connects students to potential employers in the area while exposing them to tracks in public service that they may not have previously considered. One example is a course on sustainable transportation taught by visiting professor Nancy Augustine. It focuses on how governments can
“The whole program is very focused on practicality and making real-world use of the skills you develop. This program would be a good ﬁt for anyone who’s interested in moving the needle.” — T ON Y MA ST R I A , 23, A MASTER’S STUDENT AT GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, ON WHY HE CHOSE GW’S PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM
alleviate trafﬁc snarls in cities like Washington with innovative programs such as ride sharing. As a class project, students had to pick an intersection in D.C. that drove them crazy and suggest a solution. One group picked the meeting point for Adams Morgan and U Street, where students said pedestrians routinely ignore the poorly timed walk signals that connect Florida Avenue NW with 18th, U and Vernon streets NW. Their solution: Reduce the number of crosswalks and use an iron fence to block off the intersection’s central island for a rain garden. “We read about theory and skills, but until you talk about how it applies and how it works out in the real world, the world is ﬂat to the students,” Augustine says.
The nation’s capital is particularly suited for the class because of the many jurisdictional intersections here: Some roads belong to the federal government, others to the National Park Service, and they all have to work with the District Department of Transportation to ensure a seamless experience for drivers. The practical example helps students see how their graduate degrees will translate into realworld solutions, says Mastria, a research assistant for Augustine. “The whole program is very focused on practicality and making real-world use of the skills you develop,” he adds. “This program would be a good ﬁt for anyone who’s interested in moving the needle.” AMBREEN ALI (FOR E XPRESS)

should probably go without saying that you should be artistic — and some business savvy certainly helps. Good time-management and organizational skills are also crucial to success. “You need to be able to do things efficiently,” Partridge says. Patience and empathy are also a plus, especially when dealing with difficult clients. “You need to have a real desire to help someone bring their project in the world,” Partridge says.

on a bedroom wall, which was fun,” she says. She went to McGill University for a B.A. in Middle East studies and political science, but she continued to do mural work during the summers. After graduating in 2007, Partridge worked for a defense contractor in D.C. for several years, during which she spent a year in Iraq. She realized, however, what she really wanted to do was “to go back home and live a life that was focused around creativity.” Partridge founded her company (then called Cherry Blossom Mural Works) in 2012, when her plan was to focus on murals for children. However, she hasn’t painted a single kid’s room or doctor’s office since. “People just kept asking me to do other kinds of work,” she says. After doing a mural for her first client, Annie’s Ace Hardware in Petworth (1240 Upshur St. NW; 202-726-2658, annieshardware.com), Partridge did the branding for Blind Dog Cafe (944 Florida Ave. NW; blinddogcafe.com), including the logo, business cards, banners and ink stamps, as well as chalkboards and website design.

Cherry Blossom Creative (1110 Congress St. NE; cherryblossomcreative .com) WHAT SHE DOES: A self-described “creative-project-doer,” Partridge makes local businesses her business. “There’s so much need for creative, visual work in D.C.,” Partridge says. Her studio, Cherry Blossom Creative, creates designs and illustrations for clients. Her portfolio includes a large interior mural of vintage ads at Union Market DC (1309 Fifth St. NE; unionmarketdc.com), and packaging designs for Agent Marmalade (agent marmaladedc.com), a D.C-based jam and preserves company. Her company’s location in Union Kitchen (unionkitchendc.com) is a plus: The 7,300-square-foot warehouse with a full-service kitchen is shared by similar creative enterprises and small food businesses. The proximity has helped Partridge land a lot of new clients, so Cherry Blossom Creative has been expanding in recent months to accommodate the workload. (Partridge balances between 10 and 20 projects at all times.) As her team grows — she now has five designers and illustrators who work on a contract basis, as well as an intern — Partridge’s position is shifting away from the studio’s principal designer and toward becoming its creative director.
“Just start,” Partridge advises aspiring designers and illustrators. Don’t wait to find the “perfect client or the perfect project or the perfect time to enter into the market.” But, of course, keep your day job until you’re confident and have built a clientele. (She suggests taking on projects from friends and colleagues at first.) Continued on page 24

says she mostly learned business skills as she went, by reading such books as “Creative, Inc.,” “The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook” and “Wow! I’m in Business.” Study up on relevant software, too. When Partridge isn’t busy with sketching layouts and planning colors, she spends “countless, countless hours” doing software training online (she uses Lynda.com, which begins at $25 a month for basic training), especially for Adobe Creative Suite. When it’s all said and done, though, practice really does make perfect. “The only thing that’s going to make you get better … is just a quantity of projects,” Partridge says.
Continued from page 23
Artists who want to make a career in creativity need to learn the basics of managing their own business, which comes with a “really, really, really steep learning curve,” Partridge says. She took classes on how to use QuickBooks, an accounting software, from Ross Business Management (rossbizmgmt.com). And the D.C. Women’s Business Center (dcwbc .org) provided Partridge with free consultations on business basics. And don’t be afraid to ask other pros for advice, Partridge says.

Clearly Innovative founder Aaron Saunders and designer Lis Warren recruit app designers who have little experience, but lots of passion to learn, and train them.
Developing Apps, And Employees, Too A District-based tech company chooses to grow its own talent Job Search Robert Chen, 35, was working in I.T. support when he opted for his third career change. He had applied to medical school after college, but entered real estate when the market was hot. Now, Chen builds mobile apps for Clearly Innovative, a small shop in the District that creates apps for businesses and nonproﬁts. Despite its technical demands, Chen landed the job without formal training. As tech companies struggle to ﬁnd mobile and Web developers with adequate experience, Clearly Innovative has taken to hiring people with passion but no practice. “Everyone says it’s hard to ﬁnd talent, so if it’s so hard to ﬁnd talent then I will ﬁll that void by growing my own talent,” says chief executive Aaron Saunders. Like many upstarts, Clearly Innovative, which counts just ﬁve developers among its 13 employees, doesn’t have the time or budget for formal programs. Thus, new hires divide their time between learning the software and working on real projects for clients, Saunders says. The process is designed to test an applicant’s penchant for learn-
Familiar Approach D.C.-based Clearly Innovative isn’t the first to train job applicants from the ground up. LivingSocial created a five-month program called Hungry Academy in which 24 wannabe developers took part in formal classes and group projects. The grads all found jobs at the company, but the program was disbanded after its first class. (CAPITAL BUSINESS)
ing. Those interested in becoming developers are tasked with creating an app on their own time and dime using Appcelerator, a software platform to create apps. They then present their creation. Their app, Saunders says, doesn’t have to work perfectly: “We want to see how they attempt to solve a problem.” If Saunders likes what an applicant has to say, he offers them a job — with one caveat. New hires have 45 days to pass an exam showing Appcelerator proficiency. Those who can’t make the grade are let go. “It’s almost a throwback to medieval Renaissance times when you would have an apprenticeship,” says Michael Manger, a developer at Clearly Innovative. “You bring on this person who looks to have aptitude and teach them the trade. I feel like I responded well to that.” STE VEN OVERLY (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

Debra Messing and Katherine Heigl will return to television in NBC dramas. TELEVISION
Old Stars Among New Faces in NBC’s Line-Up NBC will try to build on recent ratings gains with a dozen new series featuring the return of familiar TV stars Debra Messing, Katherine Heigl, David Duchovny and Kate Walsh. In the 2014-15 schedule announced Sunday, the network said it will move “The Blacklist” to Thursdays starting in February. NBC also announced that Season 7 of “Parks and Recreation” will be its last; that “Parenthood” has been renewed for a sixth and final season; and that the shows “Community,” “Revolution” and “The Michael J. Fox Show,” among others, will be canceled. (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)
Nintendo Sorry for Lack Of Same-Sex Scenarios Nintendo apologized Friday and pledged to be more inclusive after being criticized for not recognizing same-sex relationships in English editions of the life-simulator video game “Tomodachi Life.” The publisher said it was committed to building virtual equality into future versions.

Spike Lee Has Sitcom Idea Spike Lee is working with Showtime to adapt his 1986 film, “She’s Gotta Have It,” into a half-hour comedy, he said Thursday. Lee is also working on a film sequel to his 1988 movie, “School Daze.” (AP)
Comedy Central didn’t waste any time ﬁlling a void in its late-night line-up — and in the predominantly white and male late-night lineup in general — choosing “Daily Show” correspondent Larry Wilmore to take over Stephen Colbert’s time slot in 2015. As the late-night shuffle has taken place over the past few weeks, speculation had ramped up as to whether the channel would mix things up and help diversify the late-night TV spectrum. That fact was not lost on the network: “ ‘The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore’ will provide viewers with a distinct point of view and comedic take on the day’s news from a perspective largely missing in the current late night landscape,” the show description, released Friday, reads. “The series will feature a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television.” The new show, created and produced by “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, will debut next January after “The Colbert Report” wraps for good this year, airing at 11:30 p.m. Colbert, of course, is headed to CBS to take over “The Late Show” from David Letterman in 2015. Wilmore, 52, is a familiar face to “Daily Show” fans — he’s been on the show since 2006 and current-
COMEDY CENTRAL/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
Larry Wilmore has been on “The Daily Show” since 2006, most recently as the show’s satirical “Senior Black Correspondent.”
“I love … New York and promise to only wear my Laker T-shirts when I’m layering.” — L A RRY W ILMORE , RESPONDING TO A JAB FROM JON STEWART WHO JOKED THAT WILMORE’S HIRE WAS “ALL JUST A COMPLICATED RUSE” TO TURN HIM INTO A KNICKS FAN
ly serves as “Senior Black Correspondent.” A veteran comedy writer, Wilmore co-created “The PJs” (the animated show with Eddie Murphy) as well as the Emmywinning “Bernie Mac Show.” He was also a consulting producer on NBC’s “The Ofﬁce.” Wilmore served as an executive producer and showrunner on the sitcom pilot “Black-ish,” which ABC
just ordered to series last week. More details for “The Minority Report” (such as co-stars and writers) will be announced later. Wilmore’s show isn’t the ﬁrst Comedy Central venture to give a minority slant to satire. In fall 2008, the weekly “Chocolate News” was hosted by David Alan Grier, but it lasted just one season. EMILY YAHR (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)
Late-Night Job to Fill For those keeping score at home: Now that Stephen Colbert is taking over for David Letterman and Larry Wilmore is taking over for Colbert, there’s only one replacement left — Craig Ferguson, above, who plans to step down from “The Late Late Show” in December after he was snubbed by CBS to replace Letterman. Plus, whatever happens with Chelsea Handler over at E! — as the lone woman in latenight TV, her name had been tossed around for Ferguson’s job. (T WP)
The box office take of “Neighbors,” the Seth Rogen and Zac Efron family-versus-fraternity comedy, which unseated “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which was second with $37 million, according to studio estimates.

out if I didn’t talk to her,” Chris says. FIRST DATE: Lotus Lounge, on 14th Street NW. HOW HE PROPOSED: He invited her over to study for their finals (his at UDC, hers at GWU). She turned to put her books down, and when she turned back, he was on one knee with the ring. MOST HATED CLOTHING ITEM: Her granny panties, his hole-ridden polo shirt from middle school. PET NAMES: “He calls me Annie Boo, or Bae to annoy me.” “She calls me Big Poppa or Young Chris.” WEDDING JITTERS: “Losing the marriage license, or someone dropping the cake,” Anne says. “Dropping the ring,” Chris says, “or my voice going out when I say ‘I do.’ ”
Anne, 28, is an analyst with the Coast Guard. Chris, 27, works for the FDIC. They live in Hyattsville, Md. THE MAIN EVENT: The big day is Saturday, with 200 guests attending their formal celebration in Pentagon City. Chris’ father, pastor at Trinity AME Zion Church in Northwest D.C., will officiate. HOW THEY MET: On the dance floor at Club Love. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “He seemed very confident, yet down to earth,” Anne says. “She had this glow about her. I just knew I would be missing

PET PEEVES: “Katie is all about going out and making memories, but sometimes I just want to watch TV.” “Brad can’t seem to move the dishes from the sink to the dishwasher.” SAGE ADVICE: “The longer we are together, the easier it is for me to take Brad for granted. I have to remind myself of the little things he does. Just because they are habits doesn’t make them less important or valuable.”
groomsman was driving — speeding. They got pulled over, both in their tuxes. “My groomsman told the cop that I was getting married in exactly seven minutes and really needed to go. The officer responded, ‘Bad way to start a marriage’ and wrote us a ticket.” POST-WEDDING ADVENTURES: A train trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow, complete with techno music blaring at each station, all through the night.

These are the kinds of wines that start conversations and invite lingering over the table – wines to enjoy every day of your life.
Christina, 30, and David, 29, are both law students at Catholic University. They live in Brookland. THE MAIN EVENT: On Saturday — one week before they graduate — they’ll tie the knot in Richmond. HOW THEY MET: She was moving to D.C. for school and looking for a roommate. She met him with her dad, who had agreed that the code word “Pops” meant David was giving off a creepy vibe. She didn’t need to use it. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “Cute, funny, nice smile, tall, at ease with my father, not a serial killer.” FIRST DATE: Dinner and a haunted farm. HOW HE PROPOSED: In Key West, Fla., on the beach, at sunset. STUPIDEST FIGHT: Over where to put apostrophes. “Timing and correct punctuation are pet peeves of mine, and Christina pushes the envelope with both,” David says.

comments on the explosion of demand for Michael Sam jerseys. Sam, who was selected in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams, made history by becoming the ﬁrst openly gay player drafted into the NFL. Less than three hours after being drafted, Sam’s jersey was already up for sale — even though he has yet to receive a number or placement.
“But the height restrictions that make these views possible also make it one of the most expensive places to live in America—and D.C. just blew a great chance to reduce those exorbitant housing costs.” — DANNY VINIK AT NEWREPUBLIC.COM thinks D.C.
missed a golden opportunity to raise height limits. The District has restrictions on buildings that date back to the Height of Buildings Act of 1899. Congress recently had the chance to amend the law but chose not to. As Vinik points out, “increasing the supply of housing would bring down these rents signiﬁcantly.”
“Admist the already-overwhelming deluge of cat-focused Internets, an online video streaming service called Pluto.TV has composed a 24/7 365 channel. … What a time to be alive.” — ZACH SOKOL AT THECREATORSPROJECT.VICE.COM
sums up the general attitude toward Pluto.TV’s latest channel, Cats 24/7. The Internet couldn’t be more obsessed with all things feline, and this YouTube channel is honing in on that. Cats 24/7 provides a constant stream of cat videos, which are broken up into playlists, or “shows.” Will you be tuning in? Let us know @WaPoExpress.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may need a reminder today in order to keep squarely in mind the value of a certain endeavor. By day’s end, all will be clear again. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may need time away from someone or something before you are ready to apply yourself fully once again. Everyone needs a break now and then! CANCER (June 21-July 22) You may not hear the news from the source, but eventually it will get to you, and you’ll have to act quickly in response. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Things are likely to happen in just the right order during the first part of the day. Then, for some reason, things may take a bizarre turn. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re eager to pursue a goal that doesn’t appeal to anyone else. That simply means that there’s more of it for you to enjoy!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Don’t get caught up in a fight over something that has no real value. You know what’s important, and you know how to stay true to it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) What you see isn’t what you get today. You’ll want to keep looking before you have to settle on anything considered subpar. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Given what you’ve done in the past, today’s efforts shouldn’t really take too much out of you, though one obstacle may require careful thought.
