While concrete seems simple — just three ingredients: powdered cement, aggregate and water — the Romans formulated a material that still wows us today. “They experimented for at least 100 years with different mix designs before they really perfected quality control and materials selection,” she said. They perfected the mix around roughly 30 B.C. and used it over the next two centuries. Jackson is among researchers working to find a version of the Romans’ ancient miracle compound that will work in the United States.

District Council seeks higher ride-hail taxes

THE DISTRICT

TRANSPORTATION

GENE J. PUSKAR (AP)

TRANSPORTATION The D.C. Council on Tuesday introduced a proposal that would tax ride-hail trips at a higher rate than Mayor Muriel Bowser had sought and would require the companies to disclose extensive data about the scale of their operations in the District. The proposal, which had first been floated in budget documents released this week, would raise the “gross receipts tax” on Uber, Lyft and Via ride-sharing services from 1 to 6 percent, rather than the 4.75 percent Bowser had proposed. The mayor sought the tax increase as a way to help raise money for the District’s $178 million share of dedicated funding for the Metro rail system. The Council says its tax on the companies would raise about $23 million for the transit agency, compared to about $18 million under Bowser’s plan. And it argued that the departure from Bowser’s recommendations is justified because research shows Uber and Lyft “contribute to traffic congestion, add wear and tear to the District’s roads, and there is evidence that they draw people away from public transit.” Researchers across a range of studies arrived at figures showing anywhere between 15 and

THE WASHINGTON POST

Legislation would also require companies to disclose D.C. trip data

The D.C. Council seeks to raise taxes on ride-shares from 1 to 6 percent.

30 percent of ride-hailing trips would have otherwise been taken on public transit. Metro is studying the impact of Uber and Lyft on its declining ridership. The reaction was swift from the ride-hailing firms and advocates who had pushed for a tiered system that would exempt pooled rides from the tax increase altogether. The Council’s proposal would add about 60 cents to a $10 ride — if the services decide to pass the cost on to customers. “This disappointing proposal, devised behind closed doors without public input, stands in stark contrast to the good-faith example set by Mayor Bowser and Council member [Jack] Evans, who found a way to sustainably fund transit while helping reduce congestion,” said Uber

spokesman Colin Tooze. “Punishing District residents who choose to share their rides and help take cars off the road is not the right approach.” Bowser’s office criticized the budget tweaks Tuesday, citing their likely impact on residents and commerce rather than tourists. “While we’re still in the process of reviewing the Council’s proposal, our concern is that the new tax increases shift the burden away from visitors and onto District residents and businesses,” Bowser spokeswoman LaToya Foster said. “We will continue to work with the Council and other partners to ensure that the final budget works in the best interest of our residents.” FAIZ SIDDIQUI (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Qatar steps up to keep Metro open for Caps D.C. Council member Jack Evans, who also chairs the Metro board, said last week that he had talked with a couple of companies that were considering paying the $100,000 fee to keep Metro open an additional hour for Tuesday night’s Capitals game, and Exelon and Pepco stepped up. On Tuesday, Evans said the tiny, wealthy nation of Qatar agreed to pay the $100,000 fee to keep Metro open until 12:30 a.m. after Thursday’s Game 4 of the CapsLightning series.

BALTIMORE Even in a city accustomed to rapid turnover of police commissioners, Darryl De Sousa’s tenure as Baltimore’s top cop was brief. Within days of being charged by federal prosecutors with failure to pay his taxes, he resigned Tuesday after just 116 days on the job. De Sousa was the third person to hold the post over the last three years and the ninth since 2000. His three misdemeanor charges are the latest embarrassment for the beleaguered Baltimore force, which has been reeling from scandal to scandal. “Law enforcement needs to follow the law. It is critically important that the citizens of Baltimore have complete faith in their police department. I am deeply disappointed by Mr. De Sousa’s actions that leave us in this place,” city councilman Zeke Cohen said. De Sousa’s resignation was announced by Mayor Catherine Pugh, who said she accepted it. She picked him as commissioner in January. The City Council nearly unanimously authorized De Sousa in February. “I want to reassure all Baltimoreans that this development in

no way alters our strategic efforts to reduce crime by addressing its root causes in our most neglected neighborhoods,” Pugh said. The mayor said she has started a “national search” to find a successor. In the meantime, the police force is being led by Deputy Commissioner Gary Tuggle. De Sousa, who had been on the force for 30 years, could not immediately be reached Tuesday. The U.S. Attorney’s office said last week that he “willfully failed to file a federal return for tax years 2013, 2014, and 2015.” If the charges are proven, De Sousa faces up to one year in prison and a $25,000 fine for each of the three misdemeanor counts. He has not had his initial court appearance yet. DAVID McFADDEN AND COURTNEY COLUMBUS (AP)

Senators irked: SSA gets criticism over poor service The Social Security Administration (SSA) is taking heat from inside and outside the agency stemming from scores of field office closures and poor customer service. Bipartisan leaders of a special Senate committee want Social Security to explain why so many facilities have been shuttered, while a new internal watchdog report documents long processing times at hearing offices. In letters to SSA and the General Services Administration (GSA) on Monday, Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Robert Casey Jr., D-Pa., of the Senate Special Committee on Aging wrote: “As some 10,000 seniors turn 65 each day and file for Social Security and Medicare, we should be expanding access to services, not reducing access.� Social Security has closed about 125 field offices since 2000 and, the senators said,

“service hours at field office locations have also been cut while wait times have risen and hearing backlogs have grown.� That was detailed in an SSA inspector general’s report that examined regional Social Security hearing offices in New York and Atlanta and found both had “high average processing times (APT), had below-average staffing levels, low morale, and issues with telework, claimant representatives, and the quality of the support staff’s work.� These regions “had a disproportionate number of the lowest-ranking hearing offices in terms of average processing time,� Acting Inspector General Gale Stallworth Stone said in a letter with the report. In fiscal 2016, 88 percent of the offices in the New York region had worse-than-average processing times, as did 65 percent of the Atlanta region, a trend that continued through fiscal 2017. The report demonstrates

that the availability of an office alone doesn’t ensure good service. But without a convenient office, it could be difficult for many to get any service at all. Collins and Casey included GSA in their letter because that agency acts as the government’s real estate agency and landlord. “Particularly concerning are reports that in at least some of the locations where offices were closed, the reason cited for the closure was the inability of GSA to locate acceptable real estate within the geographical area served by the closed or consolidated offices,� Collins and Casey said. “This is reportedly the case even in areas where there were significant vacancy rates in commercial real estate.� In 96 interviews the inspector general did with employees, including management officials, judges and hearingoffice staff for the report, more support staff was, by far, the most frequently suggested way to improve processing time. Collins and Casey expressed their “deep concern that the recently announced closures of multiple field offices continues a trend that will significantly affect the quality of service that the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides.� Follow Joe Davidson on Twitter @joedavidsonWP

GAZA CITY, GAZA STRIP Patients with gunshot wounds filled wards and hallways in Gaza’s under-equipped and overwhelmed main hospital Tuesday, with dozens still waiting in line for surgery a day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed 59 Palestinians and wounded hundreds in mass protests on the Gaza border. The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters. The U.N. Security Council began its session Tuesday with a moment of silence for the dead, and the U.N.’s special Mideast envoy said there was “no justification for the killing.” Turkey expelled Israel’s ambassador, Ireland and Belgium summoned the Israeli ambassadors to their foreign ministries for questioning about the violence, and the latter two nations, along with Germany, called for an investigation. China called on Israel to show restraint. Israel said it has the right to protect its border and nearby communities, accusing Gaza’s ruling militant group Hamas of carrying out several attacks under the guise of the protests. The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, came to Israel’s defense, saying no member “would act with more restraint than

Israel has.” Monday’s border confrontation was the culmination of a weekslong protest campaign to break a border blockade that Israel and Egypt imposed after a Hamas took over Gaza by force in 2007. The protests were led by Hamas, but fueled by the growing despair among Gaza’s 2 million people who face worsening poverty, unemployment, 22-hour-a-day power cuts and sweeping bans on travel and trade. The protests were also driven by anger over the relocation Monday of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem.

Of those, 192 needed surgery, including 120 who needed orthopedic surgery, he said. By Tuesday, overwhelmed surgeons had only performed 40 orthopedic operations. On Monday, Israeli forces shot and killed 59 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,300, making it the deadliest single day in Gaza since a 2014 crossborder war between Israel and Hamas.

U.S. has Bush nostalgia Donald Trump may be the best thing that ever happened happene ned d to the 43rd rd president presid residen entt

CIA nominee secures support for confirmation

Even those who believe Bush was wrong to invade Iraq rarely question his patriotism or his respect for the office. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright writes in her new book: “We disagreed often about matters of policy. However, I have always admired the man’s easygoing optimism and his personal decency, qualities that have become far less common in public life than they should be.” In other words, Trump — named or unnamed — is now the prism through which every president’s character is judged, especially his Republican predecessor. “The current rising fondness for [Bush] has a lot to do, obviously, with the temperamental contrast he offers to the incumbent,” Meacham said. “Disagree with him as you will, he inarguably upheld the dignity of the office and represented a centerright sensibility that’s facing an existential crisis right now.”

POLITICS President Trump’s CIA nominee toughened her public stance against harsh interrogation on Tuesday and picked up Democratic support, making it likely she will be confirmed as the agency’s next director. “With the benefit of hindsight and my experience as a senior agency leader, the enhanced interrogation program is not one the CIA should have undertaken,” Gina Haspel said in answers to written questions released by the Senate intelligence committee. Haspel wrote she had learned “hard lessons since 9/11,” in comments aimed at clarifying her position on now-banned torture techniques. Haspel said she would “refuse to undertake any proposed activity that is contrary to my moral and ethical values.” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence panel, had requested the letter, and announced his support. The committee is expected to vote today to recommend that the full Senate confirm her. Haspel was involved in supervising a CIA detention site in Thailand, sparking a debate over interrogation techniques. Confirmation by the full Senate appeared likely as four Democrats — Warner of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota — announced their support.

POLITICS George W. Bush received three standing ovations vations last week, the first for the mere mention of his name. Bush was in Washington for the Atlantic c Council’s annual fundraiser, where he received the Distinguished ished International Leadership Award from the ink tank. fluential think “I’m honored ored to get this award,” Bush told the more than 800 guests from om 70 countries. “I’d really like e to dedicate it to the generosity y of the American people and ask sk you to spread the word aboutt what this great, compassionate nation has done.” He did not mention i Iraq, I nor did anyone else on this night of celebration. “Time has done the reputation of President Bush a lot of good,” said Fred Kempe, president of the bipartisan Atlantic Council. The organization had considered giving Bush the award for the past few years, but the Iraq War was always the stumbling block. This year, the jury looked at his work fighting AIDS, his foreign policy in Africa and his leadership in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. “Our conclusion was that, the longer time goes on and his presidency is reassessed, the better he looks,” Kempe said. Washington, it seems, has developed Bush nostalgia. Looking in the rearview mirror, the last Republican president suddenly appears measured, compassionate, principled — in short, presidential. Fifteen years since the infamous “Mission Accomplished” banner was unfurled celebrating victory in Iraq, the debate about the war rages on. Critics

of the invasion believe it will always define Bush’s presidency. Admirers think history will be kinder to him. When Bush left Washington, his popularity was in the tank, with just a 33 percent approval rating. That number has since doubled: 61 percent of Americans, including a number of Democrats and independents, say they have a favorable view of him, according to a CNN poll released this January. But this newfound appreciation may have less to do with history and more to do with political beer goggles: It’s 2 a.m. in the nation’s capital, and suddenly every past president looks good. No one wants to say it out loud, but Donald Trump may be the best thing that ever happened to George W. Bush. “It’s nostalgia for the personal characteristics,” said one Republican fundraiser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “Bush had a swaggering, wiseguy kind of personality, but he knew when to deploy it and when

Life after the presidency How a president behaves after leaving office is a bigger factor in the legacy question than one might guess. As a general rule, Americans want dignity and statesmanship from their past presidents. Bush has kept a low profile: painting, promoting philanthropic causes, hanging out with Bono and Bill Clinton. He’s made millions giving corporate speeches while avoiding the appearance of cashing in on his White House years. (TWP)

to behave like a president.” Presidential historian Jon Meacham said Bush “has always understood that history would have a different view of his presidency … as the years passed.” It takes 25 to 30 years to form an accurate assessment of any presidency. “Unless you’re Lincoln or FDR,” Meacham said, “you’re going to have divided opinion in real time.”

Pyongyang throws historic talks in doubt over U.S. military drills FOREIGN POLICY North Korea on Wednesday canceled a high-level meeting with South Korea and threatened to scrap a historic summit next month between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over military exercises between Seoul and Washington

that Pyongyang has long claimed are rehearsals for an invasion. The surprise declaration appeared to cool what had been an unusual flurry of outreach from North Korea. It’s still unclear, however, whether the North intends to scuttle all diplomacy or merely wants to gain leverage ahead of the planned June 12 talks between Kim and Trump. The statement was released hours before the two Koreas were to meet at a border village

N. Korea threatens to cancel summit North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, left, and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in met in April.

to discuss setting up talks aimed at reducing military tension along the world’s most heavily armed border and restarting reunions between families separated by the Korean War.

Muslim nations declare fasting month of Ramadan will begin Thursday, not Wednesday

The North’s Korean Central News Agency called the twoweek-long Max Thunder drills, which began Monday, an “intended military provocation” and an “apparent challenge” to

a summit in April between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, when the leaders agreed to reduce animosity. In Washington, the State Department emphasized that Kim had previously indicated he understood the need for and purpose of the U.S. continuing its long-planned joint exercises with South Korea. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. had not heard anything directly from Pyongyang or Seoul that would change that. “We will continue to go ahead and plan the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un,” Nauert said.

nation+world Large companies like Amazon and Starbucks to pay $275 per worker BUSINESS Seattle’s largest businesses, such as Amazon and Starbucks, will have to pay a new tax to help fund homeless services and affordable housing under a measure approved by city leaders. The City Council unanimously passed a compromise plan on Monday that taxes businesses making at least $20 million in gross revenues about $275 per full-time worker each year — lower than the $500 per worker initially proposed. The so-called “head tax” would raise roughly $48 million a year to build new

affordable housing units and provide emergency homeless services. The debate over who should pay to solve a city housing crisis exacerbated by Seattle’s rapid economic growth comes after weeks of tense exchanges, raucous meetings and a threat by Amazon, the city’s largest employer, to stop construction planning on a 17-story building near its hometown headquarters. (Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post and Express.) Amazon, Starbucks and business groups sharply criticized the council’s decision after Monday’s vote. They called it a tax on jobs and questioned whether city officials were spending current resources effectively. One state

ELAINE THOMPSON (AP)

Seattle tax will fund housing

Seattle’s City Council on Monday voted for a tax on large businesses to help fund homeless services.

Republican lawmaker said he would seek legislation next year saying that a city tax on employees, wages or hours is illegal.

Worker and church groups and others praised the tax as a step toward building badly needed affordable housing in an affluent city where the income gap continues to widen. “People are dying on the doorsteps of prosperity. This is the richest city in the state and in a state that has the most regressive tax system in the country,” said council member Teresa Mosqueda. The Seattle region had the third-highest number of homeless people in the U.S. and saw 169 homeless deaths last year. The city spent $68 million on homelessness last year and plans to spend even more this year. The tax will provide more revenue.

KERCH, CRIMEA | Russian President Vladimir Putin drives a large construction truck across the new Crimean Bridge on Tuesday in a road test of the $3.6 billion project, which connects Russia and the Crimean peninsula. The bridge and the 20-minute drive are part of Putin’s efforts to show that Crimea is officially a part of Russia. Putin called a hasty local vote in 2014 that annexed Crimea from Ukraine, triggering U.S. sanctions on Moscow.

Syrian government forces seize last rebel enclave in Homs

BUSINESS Uber’s ride-hailing service will give its U.S. passengers and drivers more leeway to pursue claims of sexual misconduct, its latest attempt to shed its reputation for brushing aside bad behavior. The shift announced on Tuesday will allow riders and drivers to file allegations of rape, sexual assault and harassment in courts and mediation, rather than being locked into an arbitration hearing. The San Francisco company is also scrapping a policy requiring all settlements of sexual misconduct to be kept confidential, giving victims the choice of whether they want to make their allegations public. CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has vowed to “do the right thing,” repair the damage from previous missteps and lure back alienated riders who defected to rivals. The changes governing sexual misconduct come a month after Uber announced it will do criminal background checks on its U.S. drivers annually and add a 911 button for summoning help in emergencies. It’s an effort to address concerns that it hadn’t done enough to keep crooks from using its service. By the end of the year, Uber will also start to publicly report incidents of alleged sexual misconduct in hopes of establishing more transparency about the issue throughout the ride-hailing and traditional taxi industries.

THREE POINTERS

Red-hot Yankees The Yankees had won 19 of 22 games before taking a short trip south for a two-game stint in D.C. that began Tuesday night. Here are a few things to watch in tonight’s series finale.

Scherzer’s statistics make him one of the best starters in the bigs, but his durability puts him in a class of his own

MLB Even among the highest-paid starting pitchers in the majors, Max Scherzer isn’t your typical ace. His three Cy Young awards, two no-hitters and $210 million deal all stand out among his peers, and Scherzer’s durability puts him in even rarer company. Scherzer has made at least 30 starts in nine consecutive seasons dating back to 2009. Jon Lester is the only other pitcher in the majors with an active streak that long (10 seasons). Clayton Kershaw made history in 2014 when he became the first pitcher to sign a contract worth more than $200 million. In the four years since, Scherzer, David Price ($217 million) and Zack Greinke ($206.5 million) have followed Kershaw ($215 million) with their own mega-deals. None of that group has been able to sustain the consistent balance of health and success demonstrated by Scherzer, who is scheduled to face the Yankees tonight at Nationals Park. Entering Tuesday, Washington’s ace

was 7-1, the only pitcher in the majors with seven wins, and led the big leagues with 13.96 strikeouts per nine innings. Among NL starters, Scherzer had the lowest opponents’ batting average (.167), the best WHIP (0.82) and the second-best ERA (1.69). Meanwhile, the other three $200 million arms had seven wins among them. Kershaw and Price are suffering biceps and wrist injuries, respectively. “Man, it’s incredible,” Nats manager Dave Martinez said of Scherzer’s consistency. “To watch him prepare, it’s not just the day of the game. It’s every day in between. He’s unbelievable, he really is. He’s the best I’ve ever seen and he’s ready to go every single time he goes out there. He has an idea of what he wants to do and it’s fun to watch.” After landing his blockbuster deal in 2015, Scherzer has continued an explosive strength-training program that keeps him in shape year-round and continues in-season. According to Sports Illustrated, he starts lifting weights

INNINGS WORKHORSE

1,151

The number of innings pitched for Nationals ace Max Scherzer dating back to the 2013 season, the most of anyone in the majors over that span. In 2013, Scherzer won the AL Cy Young with Detroit. He’s topped 200 innings and made the All-Star team for five straight years. (EXPRESS)

Dec. 1 every year and continues all season, doing heavy squats and power lifts on days after starts. During the season, he is constantly assessing his body and altering his conditioning. After a start against the Phillies last week, Scherzer said he has a self-assigned limit of 105 pitches but is comfortable pushing past that when he feels he still has gas left in the tank. In that 15-strikeout performance May 6, Scherzer trotted out for

the seventh inning at 102 pitches. He lobbied for more time but was pulled after getting the first out. “Given the context of the game, how I was pitching, how I felt strong, that’s where I knew I could take on extra pitches and push the pitch count,” Scherzer said. “So it’s manage your body, manage the season, manage the schedule, managing the game. ... I try to manage myself and be as honest as I possibly can with Davey so that he can make the best decision.” With only one stint on the disabled list — a precautionary measure for neck soreness last year — blemishing an otherwise healthy career, Scherzer has missed just one turn in the rotation since becoming a full-time starter in 2009. A clean bill of health has allowed him time to focus on improving his arsenal. “He’s constantly thinking of some ways to improve and try to get better,” catcher Matt Wieters said, “and I don’t see that slowing down any time soon.”

Entering Tuesday, 25 players had 10 or more homers. Six are in town: Bryce Harper, Matt Adams, Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius, Gary Sanchez and Giancarlo Stanton.

2 Few reps vs. Sabathia Over the past five years, Yankees left-hander C.C. Sabathia has faced only three members of the Nats’ roster: Howie Kendrick, Mark Reynolds and Moises Sierra.

1 Reunion with Stanton The ex-Marlins outfielder has a .320 average in 105 games against the Nats. In 18 at-bats against Max Scherzer, he’s had four hits (including two homers) and nine strikeouts.

WARRIORS AT ROCKETS | GAME 2: 9 TONIGHT, TNT

Kerr unleashes top lineup early Going small from start shows how important road wins are to series

RONALD MARTINEZ (GETTY IMAGES)

NBA PLAYOFFS Steve Kerr’s tenure as coach of the Warriors has been defined by a couple of things. The first, and most obvious, is postseason success. The Warriors have made three straight NBA Finals, winning two. The second, and more subjective, has been his conservative decision-making. Kerr has often been prodded — by media, by fans, even at times by his own players — to go for the jugular. When Stephen Curry was at his peak a couple of years ago, Kerr resisted going away from his egalitarian, ball-movement offense to allow Curry to run all pick-and-rolls. Kerr declined to start his best lineup this postseason — going small with Draymond Green at center — until the second round. That’s what made Kerr’s decision to start Game 1 of the Western Conference finals Monday with that small-ball lineup so telling.

Kevin Durant led the Warriors with 37 points Monday in a small lineup that featured Draymond Green, right, starting at center.

“We felt it was important to get off to a good start,” Kerr said after a 119-106 win in Houston. “That’s why we made the decision [to start small]. We had good momentum from the last series, and the matchups were good.” Golden State knew that stealing home-court advantage would be a huge blow to the Rockets.

Kerr’s personal history provides an example. In 2001, the Lakers, featuring prime versions of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, came to San Antonio — whose reserves included Kerr — to face the top-seeded Spurs in the Western finals. The two teams were the past two NBA champions and went a combined 14-2 in the first

two rounds that year. The Lakers promptly won Game 1 by 14, then won Game 2, before taking the series back to L.A. and sweeping the Spurs on their way to a repeat title. That’s how fast these series can get away. Just look at what happened to the 59-win Raptors, who never trailed in regulation in Game 1 against the Cavs but were swept after Cleveland forced overtime. There’s still plenty of basketball left, starting in Game 2 tonight at Toyota Center. The Rockets won an NBA-high 65 games with James Harden playing at an MVP level, Chris Paul adding an elite talent and Clint Capela shining within an excellent switching defense. It took a 37 points from Kevin Durant for the Warriors to win Game 1. Harden countered with 41 points of his own. Houston isn’t expected to roll over. “Obviously we lost,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “Now, the next most important game is [tonight]. Let’s see if we have a short memory.” TIM BONTEMPS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Financier will put up $2.2B to buy Panthers NFL Hedge fund boss David Tepper on Tuesday was finalizing arrangements to purchase the Carolina Panthers from Jerry Richardson for approximately $2.2 billion — a record-setting sum for an NFL team — with the intention to keep the franchise in the Charlotte area, according to multiple sources. Tepper, above, is a minority partner in the Steelers. He could be approved by the other owners as the new Panthers owner at meetings next week in Atlanta. If the deal is ratified, it would complete the succession put in motion last year after Richardson was accused of workplace misconduct. Tepper would have to sell his stake in Pittsburgh. Tepper, 60, is the founder and president of Appaloosa Management. He is described as “arguably the greatest hedge fund manager of his generation” by Forbes, which estimates his net worth at $11 billion. Tepper’s hedge fund firm is based in Miami Beach and manages about $17 billion, according to Forbes. He already has been vetted and approved by the league and the owners as a Steelers partner, so the ratification process could be relatively seamless. The deal would be scrutinized by the owners on the NFL’s finance committee and then would require the approval of at least 24 of 32 owners. League rules require the principal owner to own at least 30 percent of a club. MARK MASKE (TWP)

Having indulged her inner theater kid, Sara Bareilles now plans to return to the recording studio.

CRITIC’S NOTEBOOK

Puth drops his songs of summer

The singer is planning a new album after her venture into Broadway MUSIC When Sara Bareilles starred in her musical “Waitress” for the second time this spring, and then was a stunningly effective Mary Magdalene in NBC’s live “Jesus Christ Superstar,” and days later got tapped to co-host June’s Tony Awards, the truth was finally clear: The singer-songwriter of the uplifting cultural anthems “Love Song” and “Brave” has become a bona fide theater person. “It’s the most welcoming safe space on the planet,” Bareilles says of theater. “Taking a left turn into a pop artist career is not necessarily what I envisioned for myself.” It’s been nearly five years since Bareilles’ last studio album, “The Blessed Unrest,” because Broadway has so consumed her that she now divides her life into what

came before and after “Waitress.” Would she take another role on Broadway? “Totally,” she says. “I’m lucky that I get to have those conversations now.” Eight shows a week is tough, but compared to touring … well, she doesn’t hit the road hard anymore, the way she did when she was paying her dues. She voices her fans’ complaints: “Yeah, b----, you don’t tour.” Instead, she’s been tapped to pen songs such as the inspiring “If I Dare” for the movie “Battle of the Sexes” and a peppy number for Broadway’s “SpongeBob SquarePants” musical. More intriguing is “Seriously,” which the radio program “This American Life” asked her to write during the 2016 presidential campaign, imagining what Barack Obama was thinking as Donald Trump captured the Republican base. That song saw “Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr. caress Bareilles’ lyrics over a light rhythm and haunting string arrangement.

JESSE DITTMAR (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

Sara Bareilles’ second act takes shape

Tonys team-up Sara Bareilles will co-host the Tony Awards on June 10 with fellow pop singer-turned-Broadway star Josh Groban. “I don’t think either of us has the delusion about, ‘Let’s make this about us,’ ” Bareilles says. “Hopefully, we can be conduits to that new audience who maybe doesn’t know so much about theater, but know us.” N.P.

She’s now ready to write more songs and get back to the studio, which is what she’ll do after the Tonys. She’s feeling more focused now than five years ago,

when the write-record-tour cycle burned her out. The new album has no shape yet, but Bareilles figures she’ll trust her habit of looking inside. It worked for a decade before Broadway; immediate personal circumstances generated her standbys “Love Song,” “Brave” and “Gravity.” “ ‘Gravity’ — I had no intention of making anybody else feel better with that song,” Bareilles says. “I was only self-soothing. They were all teachers to remind me: If I can just speak truthfully to my experience, it will resonate where it needs to resonate.”

Charlie Puth’s new album, “Voicenotes,” is an astonishing collection of summerperfect pop, crafted by a gifted songwriter with a butterfly falsetto and a knack for hooks. (“Attention” and “How Long” have already been on the radio for months.) The songs for the most part deal with youthful infatuation: He asks a lover to be understanding (”Patient”), suspects he’s being cheated on (“Somebody Told Me”) and tries to convince a girl he’s mature enough (”Boy”). And on the groovy, uplifting James Taylor-ish tune “Change,” he features the actual James Taylor, a master stroke on an album full of highlights. MARK KENNEDY (AP)

Are you having money and relationship problems?

Farewell to the apostle of ‘New Journalism’ 1930-2018 The birth of the literary movement known as New Journalism can be traced to one coffeefueled episode in 1963: Tom Wolfe’s all-nighter. He had been sent to California by Esquire to report on a gathering of custom car designers. With Wolfe on the verge of missing his deadline, managing editor Byron Dobell told him to write up his notes as a memo, which the editors would shape into a story. Wolfe began at 8 p.m. and wrapped up around 6:15 a.m. That piece, “There Goes (Varoom! Varoom!) That Kandy Kolored (Thphhhhhh!) Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby,” was more than a dutiful report. Wolfe had discovered an underground culture among the West Coast car designers, hailing them as the vanguard of a form of modern art. Just like that, the legend of Tom Wolfe was born. Wolfe, who had a transformative effect on journalism and later became a best-selling novelist, died Monday at a Manhattan hospital. He was 88. Wolfe’s explosive prose was seen as the ideal vehicle for the times, and he invented or popularized such phrases as “good old

Tom Wolfe wrote such celebrated works as “The Right Stuff” and “The New Journalism.”

boy,” “radical chic,” the “Me Decade” and “pushing the envelope.” Perhaps his most memorable coinage was the title of what is often considered his greatest achievement: “The Right Stuff.” Published in 1979, the book was an epic account of the idea of American heroism. Wolfe chronicled the rise of the hippie generation in “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test” (1968), and mocked the pretensions of Manhattan liberals in “Radical

Chic” (1970) and of the art world in “The Painted Word” (1975). “The most important literature being written in America today is in nonfiction,” Wolfe asserted in his 1973 anthology “The New Journalism.” While he borrowed techniques from fiction, Wolfe knew journalism had something else going for it: “the simple fact that the reader knows all this actually happened.” MATT SCHUDEL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

trending “Oh, so what you’re saying is that I should be rich instead of being poor! Bummed that I never thought of it.” @FATALISME_ACTIF, reacting to an article from Market Watch that recommended that people have an amount equal to twice their annual salary saved by the time they reach age 35. People were shook at this suggestion. “Do you know any real people? Just curious,” @xtop tweeted. “By 35, you should have every Etrian Odyssey dungeon mapped, no weeds in your Animal Crossing town, and Classic S13 status in Tetris,” @tinycartridge tweeted, parodying the advice.

@DIANABUTTU, tweeting Tuesday for the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the “Nakba,” when Palestinians lost their homes and villages when Israel was formed in 1948. “The Nakba never ended, it still continues to this day. Moving the embassy is another means of ethnically cleansing Palestinians, complete erasure of our existence for colonial expansion,” @knafehnabulsiye tweeted.

“It’s 100% yanny how could it possibly be laurel.” “I HEAR LAUREL 100%.” @BLUEFTADDY AND @BUTERADELAINE, expressing the two sides of a viral audio clip that may be 2018’s version of “The Dress” debate. The dispute is over an audio illusion that first appeared on Reddit.
