Energy Bill Tangled Up in Politics Election-season bickering causes bipartisan bill to fail A widely popular, bipartisan energy savings bill fell victim in the Senate on Monday to election-year politics and the Obama administration’s continued indecision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A procedural motion to limit debate and send the measure to the Senate floor without amendments fell five votes short of the 60 votes needed for approval. The legislation would tighten efficiency guidelines for new federal buildings and provide tax incentives to make homes and commercial buildings more efficient. It easily cleared a procedural hurdle but stalled after Republican demand for votes on the Canada-to-Texas pipeline and on new administration-proposed greenhouse gas limits for coal-burning power plants. Republicans are united in favor of the pipeline and against the new power plant regulations, while

A group protests against the Keystone XL pipeline in March outside the Capitol.
Democrats are deeply divided on both. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., used a parliamentary maneuver to block Senate votes on the pipeline and power plant rules as part of the energy savings bill. Reid said Monday that Republicans were “still seeking ransom” on the energy savings bill by insisting on the Keystone amendment and other votes. Election-year politics loomed on both sides. Democrats said Republicans were unwilling to hand a vic-
tory on the energy bill to co-sponsor Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, who is facing a re-election challenge from Republican Scott Brown. Democrats also said the GOP wants to deny political cover to Sen. Mary Landrieu, who faces a re-election fight in Louisiana and to other Democrats in energy-producing states who have pushed for the pipeline’s approval during their campaigns. President Barack Obama delayed the project last month, citing uncertainty over the pipeline’s route

through Nebraska. On the other side, Republicans accused Democrats of dodging a vote on blocking the Obama administration’s proposed limits on carbon pollution from coalfired power plants. No matter the outcome, having to vote on what Republicans call Obama’s “war on coal” would be uncomfortable for Democrats struggling to hold their Senate majority. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that Obama is committed to increasing energy security and efficiency and “will not rest even if Congress won’t act.” (AP)

Obama Doesn’t Always Follow Public Support Washington In pushing the need for an increase in the minimum wage, President Barack Obama is using a favorite rhetorical device: reminding people that the vast majority of Americans agree with him. It’s a strategy he’s used on many issues, from gun background checks to a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. But sometimes it works against him.

NASA Spots Worrisome Ice-Sheet Melt The huge West Antarctic ice sheet is starting a glacially slow collapse in an unstoppable way, two new studies show, and alarmed scientists say that means even more sea level rise than they ﬁgured. The worrisome outcomes won’t be seen soon. Scientists are talk-
ing hundreds of years, but over that time, the melt could eventually add 4 to 12 feet to current sea levels. A NASA study looking at 40 years of ground, airplane and satellite data of what researchers call “the weak underbelly of West Antarctica” shows the melt is happening faster than scientists had predicted. “It does seem to be happening
quickly,” said University of Washington glaciologist Ian Joughin, lead author of the study in the journal Science. “We really are witnessing the beginning stages.” It’s likely that man-made global warming and the ozone hole have changed the Antarctic winds and warmed the water that eats away at the feet of the ice, researchers said at
a NASA news conference Monday. NASA glaciologist Eric Rignot, chief author of the NASA study in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, said the “grounding line,” which could be considered a dam that stops glacier retreat, has essentially been breached. The only thing that could stop the retreat is a mountain or hill and there is none. (AP)

The North Carolina entrepreneur who was locked in a too-close-tocall Democratic Party primary race with former “American Idol” singer Clay Aiken died Monday. Keith Crisco, 71, died from “some type of fall” at his home, according to Robert Lawson, president of AEC Narrow Fabrics, the textile company Crisco founded. It wasn’t immediately clear what will happen in the Democratic primary. Fewer than 400 votes separated Crisco and Aiken, who was leading, after the contest last Tuesday.
The winner was to face Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers in November in the GOP-leaning 2nd Congressional District. Crisco had been North Carolina’s top business recruiter for four years under former Gov. Beverly Perdue. He earned an MBA from Harvard University, spent a year in President Richard Nixon’s Commerce Department and had a career in textile manufacturing. “He was a gentleman, a good and honorable man and an extraordinary public servant,” Aiken said in a statement. “I was honored to know him.” (AP)

French Support Merging Regions — Just Not Theirs Paris France’s administrative regions — Normandy, Alsace, Burgundy, etc. — have long been part of the identity of its citizens. Now, merging some of them is seen as a logical way to save money on bureaucracy, and the French support it — as long as it’s someone else’s turf. The recent proposal of France’s new prime minister to cut the number of regions in half by 2017 is provoking sharp disputes, especially in areas with strong historical identity. It’s somewhat like erasing the state lines between Texas and Oklahoma. A poll suggests that 68 percent of the French believe the measure to

of error was 1.4 percentage points. “This is where we will learn who the real reformers are and who are the conservatives,” French President Francois Hollande said this month on national TV. He’s trying to counter his image as a man afraid of unpopular cost-cutting reforms that many economists say his nation needs in order to thrive. The government wants to halve the number of regions to 11 or 12, though the precise division has not been decided yet. The proposal has stirred up the traditional attachment of French people to their regions — and sometimes strong feelings against sharing the same authorities as their neighbors. SYLVIE CORBET (AP)

Can a Hashtag Really Help? A guide to the history, criticism and successes of Twitter activism
“Your new interest (thanks) simpliﬁes nothing, solves nothing.”
— TEJU COLE , A NIGERIAN-AMERICAN, EXPRESSING HIS DISCONTENT
WITH THE COOPTATION OF THE
“Hashtag activism” congealed in a major way around an actionable, concrete cause in 2012. On a Tuesday in January, the Susan G. Komen Foundation announced plans to cut funding for Planned Parenthood off. By Friday, more than 100,000 people had tweeted hashtags like #signon and #standwithpp — and Komen had restored funding. It helped that many of the activists were stakeholders in the conflict: women who used Planned Parenthood or women’s health services more generally.
#Kony2012 That was a major failing for #Kony2012. Sparked by a documen-
A video released Monday by Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist network shows the alleged abducted girls praying in Arabic.
George Zimmerman was barely investigated when he shot and killed an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin, in the Florida suburbs. The case initially attracted no attention outside Florida. But when it trickled onto Twitter’s trending topics list, issues like contemporary racism and gun control suddenly became hallmarks of the national conversation.
Boko Haram Releases Video of Girls Under the guns of their captors, dozens of girls sat huddled together wearing Muslim veils as they chanted Quranic verses in Arabic. “I swear to almighty Allah, you will not see them again until you release our [captured] brothers,” the leader of the Boko Haram terrorist network threatened. A video released by the group Monday offered the first public glimpse of what it claimed were some of the nearly 300 Nigerian
tary of the same name on Ugandan military leader and indicted war criminal Joseph Kony, #Kony2012 earned nearly 2.4 million tweets in March 2012 … but failed to articulate any specific demands. Worse, it was organized by do-gooder Americans, not Ugandans. The meddling, imperialist overtones would forever haunt the hashtag.

schoolgirls kidnapped a month ago. It is unknown how many suspected Boko Haram members are detained by security forces. Hundreds were killed last month when leader Abubakar Shekau’s ﬁghters stormed the military’s barracks in Maiduguri, the headquarters of a military state of emergency to put down the 5-year-old Islamic uprising. In the video, which showed about 100 girls, two were singled
out for questioning. “Why have you become a Muslim?” one girl, was asked. “The reason why I became a Muslim is because the path we are on is not the right path,” the girl said, nervously shifting her body. It was impossible to fully authenticate the video, though parents were trying to turn on a generator in the town of Chibok to watch the video and identify their daughters, said a town leader. (AP)

COURTESY OF THE WHITE HOUSE
More than 1 million people have tweeted the hashtag #BringBack OurGirls. But whether they’re helping the roughly 250 schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria or hopping on some kind of first-world digital bandwagon depends on whom you ask. “Hashtag activism” is just the latest iteration of a long-standing debate between people who think “awareness” is its own kind of protest and people who do not. The case of the Nigerian schoolgirls is particularly instructive. The girls earned little attention outside of the country, or from the Nigerian government, until supporters took to Twitter to demand their return. That seems like an uncontroversial demand, but it hasn’t sat well with everyone. Nigerian-American writer Teju Cole went on a Twitter rant, arguing that the spate of Internet interest has not only oversimpliﬁed and sentimentalized the country’s issues, but failed to achieve anything.
tweeted this image last week and added: “Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families. It’s time to #Bring BackOurGirls. -mo”
One of the profound benefits of hashtag activism is the amplification of minority voices. In December, Suey Park launched the tag to prompt discussion of Asian-American feminism and media representation. Critics argue, “hashtag activism” is lazy and often serves more as a f lattering symbol of concern than concern itself. More insidiously, some claim, these hashtags are often started not by the people they’re supposed to help, but by privileged, pitying outsiders. That’s what made #Kony2012 so vaguely icky. And that’s what made #NotYourA sianSidek ick and #JusticeforTrayvon so great — those hashtags transcended paternalistic or imperialistic traditions. #BringBackOurGirls doesn’t ﬁt neatly into either category. It was started by Nigerians, but coopted by outsiders. You can argue that it’s lazy, but you can argue that it’s doing good. In the days since it began trending, the U.S., U.K. and France have all promised to aid Nigeria in its search for the girls. CAITLIN DEWEY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

McDonnell, an opponent of abortion, also overhauled the board but had declined to say whether abortion rights was a factor in his appointments. McAuliffe made no such pretense, stating ﬂatly that his appointees reﬂected his views not only on abortion but also on the need to review the clinic regulations. The governor’s call for a review and his board appointments will not, at least immediately, spare the state’s 18 abortion clinics from having to make costly building renovations that some say could drive them

out of business. But abortion rights supporters cheered what they saw as a gutsy ﬁrst step toward loosening regulations in a state that has been tightening them year after year.
Abortion opponents characterized McAuliffe’s move as yet another end-run around the legislature. “Whether the governor and the abortion industry like it or not, the law of Virginia requires that abortion centers have health and safety standards,” said Victoria Cobb, president of the Family Foundation of Virginia. The governor’s ofﬁce took pains to say that he was working within the law but merely on an expedited basis. Any regulation can be reviewed every four years after adopted. McAuliffe was simply asking for the review sooner than normal, spokesman Brian Coy said. LAURA VOZZELLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Arlington May is National Bike Month, but the celebration is off to an inauspicious start in Arlington, where a resident says she was ticketed in her hospital room after being hit by a car. The incident has revived anger in Rosslyn, Va., over what cyclists call “the intersection of doom” — the point where Lee Highway meets North Lynn Street, and bicyclists coming off the Custis Trail face off against two lanes of cars turning right off Interstate 66 onto the Key Bridge. Lindsey Kelley says she was biking through the crosswalk at the intersection when she was hit by a gold sedan. A U.S. Park Police ofﬁcer asked whether she was hurt and needed an ambulance; she said yes. She saw the ofﬁcer again later, when he came to the hospital and gave her a $70 ticket for “disregarding trafﬁc signs or road markings.” “He said, ‘Don’t get your blood pressure raised; here’s your ID and here’s your ticket,’ ” Kelley recalled. He said a witness had told him that she was not in the crosswalk when she was hit. She protested, and he told her he didn’t see the crash. Kelley suffered a sprained wrist and a mild concussion. She said she had three ﬂashing lights on her bike

Sharing the Road According to Arlington County, about 1,700 cyclists bike the Custis Trail on a typical weekday. At the height of the morning rush, approximately 600 cars an hour turn right to access the Key Bridge, and about 250 bicyclists cross Lynn Street in that period. The county has discussed extending the street curbs and adding traffic and trail signals to improve visibility and flow. (T WP)
when she was hit. She had taken a bike safety class with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. She took a picture after the crash, before the ambulance arrived, of her bike lying in the crosswalk. It i s not t he f i r s t t i me a biker has been hit at that spot. ArlNow.com, which first reported Kelley’s accident, has recorded several such incidents — including three in one week in 2011. The problem, cyclists say, is that they have the green light to continue from the Custis Trail to the Mount Vernon Trail or the Key Bridge by
crosswalk at the same time that cars are able to turn right. “Everyone I know who has gone through there regularly has had very close calls,” said Gillian Burgess, a member of the Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee. “It’s a frustrating situation for motorists. The problem is, when they get frustrated, they put other people’s lives in danger.” Arlington police are aware of the problem and conduct safety education campaigns in the area as well as issuing tickets, spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.

Third-Quarter Syndrome Terrible second-half starts have plagued the Wizards all series
The offense was dragging and desperately in need of some direction when coach Randy Wittman called on his most tested veterans to serve up a clinic in ball movement, hustle and huge shots. Behind the play of Andre Miller, Al Harrington and Drew Gooden, the Wizards went into the locker room with a seemingly comfortable, double-digit halftime lead. When the Wizards returned for the third quarter and Wittman put the game back in the hands of his starters, the offense ﬂew off the rails once again and Washington crashed into a humiliating loss. This was the scenario that played out during the Wizards’ 95-92 loss to the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of Eastern Conference semiﬁnals loss. But it was almost a repeat performance of what occurred in Charlotte, N.C., on March 31, when the Wizards squandered a 16-point lead and wasted a solid effort from its 30-something backups. At the time, it was the 11th regular-season game in which Washington blew a double-digit lead. In another miserable thirdquarter performance, the Wizards allowed a 19-point lead get down to one and lifted the Pacers off the ﬂoor to set the stage for the most dis-

appointing loss of the postseason. “I don’t know if we ran out of gas or what, but we didn’t have the same conﬁdence, swagger to try to increase the lead,” Gooden said. Washington has lost the third quarter of every game this series against Indiana. But in Games 1 and 2 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Wizards were outscored by a combined 12 points. In Games 3 and 4 at Verizon Center, the Wizards were outscored by a combined 30. “We didn’t come out with any intensity in the third quarter from a defensive standpoint,” Wittman said. “We just didn’t have that same energy right when we come out. … You work the whole ﬁrst half to build a 17-point lead and give it all

Manager Matt Williams, right, and the Nats opened a series vs. Arizona on Monday.
Williams Returns Home to Arizona He faces his former team for ﬁrst time as Nationals manager Baseball When the Nationals landed in Phoenix on Sunday evening, manager Matt Williams headed to his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., instead of the team hotel. After being away from home for more than three months, Williams will finally be able to spend time in his own house with his family. This week’s series, which opened Monday night, also will mark Williams’ ﬁrst trip to Arizona as the Nationals’ manager. The Diamondbacks are one of the teams Williams is most identiﬁed with. He not only made Arizona his full-time home, but he is a former Diamondbacks player, coach, broadcaster, front ofﬁce executive
and part owner. “It’ll be fun,” Williams said after Sunday’s game. “Certainly get a chance to sleep in my own bed, which’ll be good. Good to see [my wife Erika] and [daughter] Madison, that’ll be good, too. But beyond that, we want to win and play well and beat those guys.” The Diamondbacks entered Monday’s game with the secondworst record in the National League at 15-25. Their pitching staff has been horrid and the Nationals are scheduled to face two struggling starters in Bronson Arroyo (3-2, 4.89 ERA) today (9:40 p.m., MASN2) and Brandon McCarthy (1-6, 5.66 ERA) on Wednesday (3:40 p.m., MASN) in the three-game series. While the Nationals take on the Diamondbacks, Williams will stand in the visitor’s dugout for the ﬁrst time as the manager of his new team, his old one across the ﬁeld.

Ria Antonia will be ridden by Borel, who won Preakness in ’09 Horse Racing A filly is going to challenge the boys in the Preakness for the first time since 2009 when Rachel Alexandra won. Ria Antonia will be ridden by Calvin Borel, who guided Rachel Alexandra to victory. Ria Antonia is coming off a sixth-place ﬁnish in the Kentucky Oaks on May 2 at Churchill Downs, where she has been training. For the ﬁrst time in the Preak-
ness, a ﬁlly, a female jockey and a female trainer will all compete at the same time. Rosie Napravnik will ride Bayern while trainer Linda Rice will saddle Kid Cruz. Ria Antonia’s trainer, Tom Amoss, said Monday the idea to run her against the boys came from her owners. He said she has passed all the tests to take on the challenge. She joined his barn three days after the Oaks, when the owners decided to switch to Amoss from Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert. “I don’t know what happened in the Oaks, but I like the way she looks now,” Amoss said. “We have a healthy, sound horse and we are ready to roll the dice.”

Filly Set to Run Against the Boys
Ria Antonia is the first filly in the Preakness since Rachel Alexandra in 2009.
Amoss said he sees the Preakness as Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome versus everyone else. He says if California Chrome runs his race in the 13 ⁄16-mile Preakness then he will win, but if not, it opens up opportunities for other horses, including Ria Antonia. Ria Antonia is scheduled to jog at Churchill Downs today and arrive in Baltimore from Louisville, Ky., on Wednesday. The 139th Preakness Stakes is Saturday. California Chrome galloped 1¼ miles Monday at Churchill then departed on a ﬂight to Baltimore. It will be the third time a Triple Crown race has had a ﬁlly, a female trainer and a female jockey. (AP)

D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson is left off pre-World Cup list Soccer
Defenders John Brooks, Timmy Chandler and DeAndre Yedlin were among the players selected Monday by U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on his 30-man preliminary roster. Midﬁelder Julian Green, who made his national team debut last month, and forwards Terrence Boyd and Chris Wondolowski also are among the players who will try to earn spots during the Americans’ pre-World Cup training camp, which opens Wednesday at Stanford, Calif. K linsmann must submit a 23-man roster to FIFA by June 2. Among those left off Monday were defenders Michael Orozco and Tim Ream; midﬁelders Sacha Kljestan, Brek Shea, Jose
Torres and Daniel Williams; and forwards Herculez Gomez, Eddie Johnson and Juan Agudelo. Johnson, who has yet to score in eight games with MLS’s D.C. United this season, scored the key ﬁrst goal against Mexico last September that clinched the Americans’ seventh straight World Cup berth. “It was a very difﬁcult decision based on what he’s done with me the whole time,” Klinsmann said. Klinsmann said he viewed Landon Donovan, a veteran of three World Cups, as a pure forward on this roster. Johnson, a member of the 2006 World Cup roster, was a victim of numbers as Klinsmann took only six forwards. Ten players were on the 2010 roster, including left back DaMarcus Beasley, like Donovan a veteran of three World Cups. Half the players are from MLS with four each from England’s Premier League and Germany’s Bundesliga. (AP)

In Friday’s Express | Park It Here There are two main types of bike parking: public racks and indoor storage. (Office buildings and apartments without designated space for the latter are getting rarer.) In D.C. Rider on Friday, find out about a third solution, courtesy of Two Wheel Valet. The local business, which just launched, envisions offering its services not only for major events and festivals, but also as a daily solution for commuters who’d prefer to drop off rather than lock up.

Locked and Overloaded With more cyclists riding around D.C., bike parking can’t keep up with demand
Bike racks can “help make a place,” says Greg Billing, advocacy coordinator for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. The question is: Can you make out where these places are? 2

Co-workers Stavely Lord and David Hambric both thought it’d be smart to ride their bikes to happy hour on 14th Street last Friday night. The moment they arrived, they realized the problem with this plan: parking. Every rack was packed. And all of the meters and street signs in sight were already sporting Kryptonite locks. The only spot left was along one side of a tree box. “So we had to share,” Hambric said as he detached his frame from Lord’s. (They’d latched the two together, and then locked up to the metal railing.) Hambric, a Bloomingdale resident, explained that coming up with such creative solutions is just part of being a cyclist in Washington, “where bike parking is at a premium, and demand has outstripped supply.” The city’s cycling infrastructure is lagging, added Lord, who lives in Shaw: “Some places have racks, but they only have one or two of them.” Two decades ago, when there were only one or two racks in all of downtown, these complaints would have seemed nuts. But now D.C. has a different reputation — and a lot more cyclists. According to new Census Bureau data, 3.1 percent of Washingtonians regularly commute to work by bike (up from 1.2 percent in 2000). That number is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years, as the maxed-out Metro system and gridlocked streets persuade more folks to saddle up. D.C. will get a preview of what the future could look like this Fri-
day, when the region celebrates Bike to Work Day (see box). All of those bikes need to go somewhere. “Bike parking is not the sexiest topic in transportation, but we believe strongly in it,” says Megan Kanagy, the capital projects manager for the Downtown DC Business Improvement District, which launched a three-year push to boost its rack count last fall. In 2012, the neighborhood had 500 racks. By 2015, it’ll have close to 1,000. “We don’t see this as three years and we’re done,” Kanagy says. “Then we’ll start over. Our goal is to saturate the area with bike racks so you don’t need to think about it.” For the project, Downtown DC has partnered with the District Department of Transportation, which is constantly collecting suggestions for where to put more racks. Anyone is welcome to call
311 to suggest a spot. Kim Lucas, the department’s bicycle program specialist, says DDOT has put in more than 2,000 racks over the past 10 years (in addition to the 1,000 or so it’s facilitated through business improvement districts). “We respond to demand and try to predict need,” says Lucas, who notes that wherever there’s new development — like on the 14th Street corridor — there are cyclists. Capital Bikeshare should, in theory, lessen parking demands. But at the most popular destinations, there’s the problem of “dock block.” That can end up forcing folks to take their own bikes, Lucas adds. Haven’t noticed many new racks lately? That’s because the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, which had been installing them, ended its contract with DDOT nine months ago. (The work was outside
of the group’s core advocacy mission, WABA’s Greg Billing says.) Just last week, a new contractor began installing racks to tackle the backlog of 100 requests that accumulated. Picking the right spot for a bike rack can be tricky. The ideal location is in front of a given destination, Kanagy says, because cyclists aren’t so different from drivers: “Even though they’ve biked in from wherever they came from, they still
want to park as close as possible.” Considering D.C.’s bike theft stats, that’s just as much a matter of security as one of convenience. But there are limits on where bike racks can go. Some sidewalks are too narrow, or are crowded with cafes, parking meters and trees. Others are impossible to drill into. Several racks that were scheduled to be installed on Chinatown’s old brick sidewalks are currently sitting in Kanagy’s ofﬁce. When a traditional U-shaped black rack isn’t feasible, planners turn to alternatives, such as those bike corrals that replace a car parking spot in the street. In other words, planning bike parking is something of an art. Nowhere is that truer than in the Golden Triangle. In recent years, Leona Agouridis, executive director of the neighborhood’s business improvement district, has overseen the installation of hundreds of racks, including six distinctive ones that won design contests. (The ﬁrst was the rack that spells out “Bike Here” by the Dupont Metro.) “It’s public art that has a function,” Agouridis says. “It changes the scale of the street, and adds color, whimsy and character.” And it helps make D.C.’s skyrocketing number of bicycles a beautiful thing.

Be Polite — to a Point A friend of mine is always disciplining my daughter in ways I do not agree with. My daughter is only 3, and my friend expects her to always be perfect with her please and thank-yous, to share perfectly with her daughter, etc. How do I tell her to loosen up? ANNOYED FRIEND
A Matter of Faith
BEN CLAASSEN III
If you’re going to be friends for the long haul, you’ll need to ﬁnd a way to manage your different parenting styles without passive-aggressiveness or thrown Gogurts. You have options: have an in-depth heartto-heart with her, address each incident as it comes, bite your tongue and ﬁnd outside ways of coping or spend less time with her. I vote for the ﬁrst one. Say, “I’ve noticed you and I have different philosophies and expectations about this 3-year-old stage. For instance,
I’ve been dating a guy who could be the love of my life. He’s Jewish, and his faith is important to him. I’m Christian. I’m not as tied to my faith as he is, but I have mixed feelings about converting, which is something he’s made clear that he would expect if we got married. We have friends with mixedfaith marriages that I would like to emulate. But he’s convinced we need to be united in our faith. I feel like if I start a marriage having changed something so big about myself, that’s not a good precedent. ROADBLOCK
Everyone has different thresholds for what they’re willing to change before marriage. For some people, changing toothpaste brands is too much, whereas others will happily relocate to a different continent. So although I can’t answer this for you, here are some questions that can help: Is he uncompromising in other ways? Would conversion and following the faith be a one-off deal, or might he start expecting you to do more to ﬁt his ideals? And the mixed-faith marriages that are unattractive to him — why, exactly?

“An amazing accomplishment” On Friday, April 25, undeterred by rain, your six challengers met in Crystal City to compete for bonus points in our Mid-Point Challenge: a 5k race. “I’ve run in 5k races before but never in the rain. The weather messed up my time a little, but I could tell my strength training has deﬁnitely helped improve my speed; after the run, my legs weren’t too tired.”
“Though I came in last, I beat my personal record and completed the race—which was such an empowering feeling! This experience proved to me that no goal is out of reach if you work hard for it!”
“The Mid-Point Challenge was an amazing accomplishment for me! If you’d told me a year ago that I’d be running in a 5k, or even just walking that distance, I would have told you it was impossible.”
“I’m not a fan of running, so I wasn’t looking forward to this. It helped to have friends and family cheering us on, and to have my trainer running with me! She inspired me to keep going when my legs felt like lead!”
— Pamela CHALLENGER

The Insider Track Are they bike lanes or yikes lanes? As Evan Wilder, who bike-commutes from Mount Rainier, Md., to Farragut North, puts it: “If you’re new to the lanes, they can be deceptively reassuring.” You’re biking along and feeling secure. But a delivery truck could block the way. Or a motorist could swerve in front of you. Or the lane could suddenly disappear. Here’s some guidance to help you navigate D.C.’s bike lanes.
Learn the Basics
It’s obvious that a bike lane — whether merely painted or physically separated from cars — is meant for cyclists. But what about a sharrow? The word is a mash-up of “shared lane” and “arrow,” and you know you’re on one if there’s a picture of a bike and “ ” painted in the middle of the lane. These markings serve as a reminder to drivers that they’re sharing the road with cyclists. “I imagine the motorist thinking, ‘Oh, right, it’s OK that the biker’s in the middle of the road,’ ” Wilder says. At an intersection, cyclists might also find themselves in a horizontal box with a row of bikes painted on it. That’s a “bike box,” located in front of the white line where cars must stop for a light. The space gives cyclists a chance to move safely from left to right (or vice versa) for a turn.
Learn this etiquette and lingo so you’re ready to ride in D.C.’s network of bike lanes
See images of drivers obstructing cyclists at whosblockinglsttoday.tumblr.com.
Think Ahead You may have to take evasive action even in a bike lane. Trucks, taxis and police cars are such frequent idlers in the L Street lane that they’ve inspired a Tumblr: “Who’s Blocking the L St. Bike Lane Today?” That’s why you need to be “scanning,” says Greg Billing, advocacy coordinator for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. When you see an obstacle ahead, he advises, you should slow down, look over your shoulder, signal with your arm if the lane is clear, move out of the bike lane into trafﬁc, then return once you’ve passed the blockage. You can call 311 to report the license number of the offending vehicle, which is subject to a $65 ticket. An ofﬁcer might not arrive in time to catch the driver, but Billing believes it’s good to get it on record. If the bike lane is next to a row of parked cars, also keep an eye on
Next in Lanes … Cyclists looking for new routes on Bike to Work Day on Friday can try out the cycle tracks on M Street NW (from Thomas Circle to 28th Street) and First Street NE (from Union Station to the Metropolitan Bike Trail). The newest additions to D.C.’s 65-plus miles of lanes are not officially finished, but both have already been attracting riders — and are notable for having sections protected by a concrete curb. The District Department of Transportation is also using green paint and a Twitter campaign (#parkingdirty) to remind drivers to keep out.
the doors. They can open unexpectedly, says DC Bike Party organizer Lia Seremetis, who likes to keep her distance from parked vehicles even if it means riding closer to trafﬁc.
Play Nice When a driver makes a dangerous move — like illegally cutting into a bike lane — you may want to bang on the car or yell. Road rage won’t help. Veteran bikers recommend using a gentle tone instead. You might note that drivers who hit a cyclist in D.C. can be fined $500 and get six points on their license. Cyclists, too, can cause problems. “Salmoning,” aka riding the wrong way in a bike lane, is a no-no. “That puts me in the difﬁcult position of having to move over into the door zone or quickly merge into trafﬁc,” says Carolyn Szczepanski, spokeswoman for the League of American Bicyclists. When passing other cyclists, “don’t sneak around,” says Brian McEntee, who blogs at “Tales from the Sharrows.” Ring a bell and/or call out “passing.” If the bike lane is narrow, pull into trafﬁc to get by the slower cyclist. And at an intersection, don’t move your bike ahead of someone already there. That’s called “shoaling,” and it’s as rude as cutting in line at the deli counter. MARC SILVER (FOR E XPRESS)

MATT McCLAIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Good Looks & Good Luck Before finding fame on “The O.C.,” Chris Carmack was an Abercrombie & Fitch model. He now stars on ABC’s “Nashville.”
Chris Carmack enjoys a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as a star of ABC’s ‘Nashville’ Television At the moment, Maryland native Chris Carmack is enjoying a rare bit of Hollywood stability. He’s got a series regular gig on ABC’s soapy drama “Nashville” that not only gives him a juicy role as a closeted country singer, but a platform to be a real-life recording star. Though he might be best known to some for his role on Fox’s “The O.C.” a decade ago, he’s determined to squeeze every advantage from
this opportunity. “You know how most kids look back at college and go, ‘I could have gotten a lot more out of that?’ That’s kind of what ‘The O.C.’ was for me,” Carmack, 33, says about his ﬁrst brush with fame. “Sometimes I look back and I’ll be like, ‘God, Chris, you were such a damn idiot.’ Just ’cause I didn’t know enough to really drink it in for everything it was worth.” Carmack, a Magruder High School graduate, had his breakout role in 2003 as high school jock Luke Ward on the Fox teen drama. Luke’s the one who uttered the nowiconic line in the show’s pilot episode: “Welcome to the O.C., bitch!” On some level, he was as surprised as anyone to break through
in the ﬁrst place. Growing up in Derwood, a suburb of Rockville, Carmack spent his early days involved in sports. In high school he realized how much he liked being on stage in school plays. He was ready to begin classes at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts until one of his classmates handed him a ﬂier for an Abercrombie & Fitch modeling open casting call and told him, “You would be crazy if you didn’t go to this.” So he went. The jobs were fun, he says, but the cattle call casting process was miserable. “It was very dehumanizing,” Carmack recalls. When a friend alerted him to the role of an up-and-coming singer named Will Lexington on “Nash-
ville,” Carmack jumped at it. He didn’t know many country songs, so in his audition, he sang Jason Aldean’s “She’s Country” while stealing glances at a lyrics sheet on the ﬂoor. The producers were immediately impressed — before Carmack made it back to his car, he got a call that the “Nashville” team was very interested. Producers told Carmack from the start that Will Lexington would harbor a secret — he’s gay and has desperately tried to keep his sexuality hidden so as to not alienate traditional country music fans. Carmack didn’t hesitate. A chance to play music, be produced by T Bone Burnett (the producer served as music supervisor for the show’s ﬁrst season) and get an intriguing story line? Sign him up. As the second season of “Nashville” draws to a close and the cast gears up for the recently announced third season, Carmack is focusing on making inroads to a real singing career. Living full-time in Nashville, Tenn., he plans to spend the summer writing music and playing shows around town. “I just don’t want to look back at this and say, ‘I missed that opportunity,’ ” he says. “I’d rather look back and say, ‘I knew what it was and I had fun with it.’ ”EMILY YA HR (THE WASHINGTON POST )
“Nashville” (one hour) season finale airs at 10 p.m. Wednesday on ABC.
Screen to Stage: The Kennedy Center announced Monday that John Legend, left, will headline a free concert May 28 in the Opera House showcasing an eclectic range of pop artists who have emerged via YouTube. The event, “YouTube OnStage Live From the Kennedy Center,” will include performances from dubstep violinist Lindsey Stirling, French hip-hop duo Les Twins, and jazz-influenced band Postmodern Jukebox.

APRIL JONES FIROOZABADI
You do the cobalt blue dress with a gorgeous fuchsia handbag.
April Jones Firoozabadi When NBC4 anchors Angie Goff and Barbara Harrison need fashion help, they raid April Jones Firoozabadi’s closet for couture. Better known as April Yvonne, the ex-intelligence worker’s knack for breaking the mold of stereotypical D.C. suits led her to found Mydcstyle.com, a blog about how to dress here, and earned her the gig of resident stylist at Georgetown’s plush Capella hotel. She runs its fashion show and lunch Styles Series, which stars beachy styles from Calypso St. Barth tomorrow. You used to work at the State Department. That must give you insight into how to dress in D.C. If my former boss calls me and needs to dress for State Department meetings with Beijing, I know how to dress her, or if she’s going to the White House Correspondents Dinner, I know how to dress her, because I’ve been in the environment.
How can women dress appropriately without being dull? The key is to know what to avoid.
For instance, anything that you would wear for a sexy date night with your husband or girlfriend, stay away from that. Play with hemlines and necklines and things. What could that mean for a formal event like the White House Correspondents Dinner? You do a cobalt blue, simple long gown, but you add maybe some studded, funky heels so that when you’re walking, you see a peep of metallic studs popping out. Or you do something with your handbag.
What are some black-tie fashion faux pas? Cleavage is still a no-no at any of these formal events. You don’t want to be busting out. That’s one of the faux pas, along with short hemlines. Length is key. Miniskirts are for nightclubs. Whenever I go to a formal event, I think to myself, “I could run into a senator, I could run into George Clooney.” You never know who you’re going to see. Well, if you run into Clooney, you might want the miniskirt. Yeah, you’re right. That would be the best night ever. What are your go-to shops for formal wear? If it’s somebody who’s looking to spend a lot but not crazy, Mazza Gallerie and Tysons Galleria have Saks and Neimans. Hu’s Wear — Marlene [Hu Aldaba] is the owner and she’ll get in really beautiful stuff that other places don’t carry. What’s a must-have for men? A colorful pair of loafers. Too often you see men wearing tan and black and white. So a colorful pair of loafers that matches their personality. And then of course a very tailored men’s suit in a neutral color.

Saturday is the Washington Nationals’ second Pups in the Park event of the season, when your dog can sit right next to you during an early evening game against the New York Mets. You and your little Jayson Woof get your own seats in an outﬁeld reserved section. There’s some real sod nearby for puppy potty breaks. If you’re the one who needs a break, “petsitters” will watch your pooch for a bit while you grab a hot dog. “It wa s h i la r ious seei ng some of these dogs sit up and watch what was going on on the ﬁeld,” says Gwyn Donohue, creator of the blog “Two Dog Tales” (twodogtales.wordpress.com), who

Duvernay-Tardif was eventually selected during the sixth round of the draft Saturday.

“While it’s obviously reckless for them to blow through an intersection when they don’t have the right of way, research and common sense say that slowly rolling through a stop sign on a bike shouldn’t be illegal in the first place.” — JOSEPH STROMBERG AT VOX.COM makes the
case that cyclists should be able to treat stop signs as yield signs and red lights as stop signs, citing Idaho and 19 other states that have some form of laws that understand there are many intersections that don’t require cyclists to come to a complete stop.
