Yahoo’s Bold $1.1B Buy of Tumblr Company seeks the hipper audience that blogging site attracts San Francisco After falling woefully out of fashion, Yahoo wants to be cool again while catering to the capitalistic demands of its shareholders. That goal led CEO Marissa Mayer to make a $1.1 billion bet on online blogging forum Tumblr in a risky acquisition that revolves around the vision and instincts of a 26-yearold entrepreneur who dropped out of high school to pursue his dream of bringing more beauty and creativity to the Internet. The deal announced Monday is Mayer’s boldest move since she left Google 10 months ago to lead Yahoo’s latest comeback attempt. It marks Yahoo’s most expensive acquisition since it bought online search engine Overture a decade ago for $1.3 billion. While hailing Tumblr as a fount of creativity that attracts 300 million visitors each month, Mayer told analysts Monday that she is “mak-
What Happens Next
“On many levels, Tumblr and Yahoo couldn’t be more different, but at the same time, they couldn’t be more complementary.” DAVID KARP TUMBLR FOUNDER
MARISSA MAYER YAHOO CEO
“Our mission — to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve — certainly isn’t changing.”
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is betting that Tumblr, founded in 2007, will provide Yahoo with a captivating hook to reel in more traffic and advertisers on smartphones and tablet computers. Advertising largely has been a missing ingredient so far, as Tumblr, like many online services in their early stages, focused on building a loyal audience before turning its attention to making money. By purchasing Tumblr, Yahoo will have more opportunities to sell advertising. Tumblr could also help Yahoo recapture some of its cachet with teens and adults in their early 20s, a demographic that has become tougher for Yahoo to reach in recent years as it fell behind the technological curve. (AP)
ing a sincere promise to not screw it up.” Yahoo said Tumblr’s founder, David Karp, will remain in charge and will keep Tumblr’s headquarters in New York to retain the same “irreverence, wit and commitment to empower creators.” Tumblr’s audience, which boasts a large concentration of teens and people in their early 20s, is already fretting that the service is going to become more stodgy and commercial under the ownership of an 18-year-old company that seems ancient by the standards of Internet time. “I can’t help but be concerned that Yahoo will ‘Yahooize’ Tumblr and make it as irrelevant as the
mother ship,” said Jennifer Grant, 36, who has a Tumblr blog. Mayer is confident she can balance the needs of Tumblr’s users and Yahoo’s investors. She called Tumblr a “game changer” and was effusive in her praise of Karp, likening him to other great entrepreneurs she knows — a list that includes Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, a duo for whom she worked for 13 years. Karp, who built Tumblr from his tiny childhood bedroom in New York, “will be one the legends of his generation in terms of an entrepreneur who has really changed the way people express themselves,” Mayer predicted.

After years of debate, Vermont on Monday became the fourth state in the country to allow doctors to prescribe lethal doses of medicine to terminally ill patients seeking to end their lives. Gov. Peter Shumlin signed the bill into law even as opponents vowed to push for its repeal. The End of Life Choices law was effective immediately, although it could be weeks before the state Health Department develops regulations in accordance with the
How It Will Work In its first three years, the Vermont assisted-suicide law will resemble the Oregon model, which has built-in safeguards, including requirements that patients state three times that they wish to die. Other safeguards include a concurring opinion from a second doctor that a patient has less than six months to live and a finding that the patient is of sound mind. In 2016, Vermont will move to a model that would require less monitoring. (AP)
new measure. Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Harry Chen said he expects doctors to write between 10 and 20 lethal prescriptions a year, with a smaller number of patients actually using the drugs. He based his figures on the experience in Oregon, the first state to legalize assisted suicide in 1997. Washington state and Montana followed later, with Montana’s coming by way of a court order. The legislature passed the bill last week. A similar measure was defeated in 2007. (AP)

Citing a lack of leads, West Valley police said Monday that it is closing the active investigation of the 2009 disappearance of Susan Powell, a Utah mother whose nowdead husband was a prime suspect. The announcement came after police spent two days searching in rural Oregon last week for any trace of Powell’s body. Susan Powell was reported missing Dec. 6, 2009. Her husband, Josh, maintained his innocence and eventually returned to the couple’s hometown of Puyallup, Wash. On Feb. 15, 2012, he locked a social worker out of a rental home at the start of a supervised visit, attacked the boys with a hatchet and set the house afire. All three were killed. (AP)

Obama Aides Knew of IRS Audit But spokesman says president didn’t know until news reports Washington White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and other senior advisers knew in late April that an impending report was likely to say the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative groups, President Barack Obama’s spokesman disclosed Monday, expanding the circle of top officials who knew of the audit beyond those named earlier. But McDonough and the other advisers did not tell Obama, leav-
ing him to learn about the politically perilous results of the internal investigation from news reports nearly three weeks later, officials said. The decision to keep the president in the dark underscores the White House’s cautious legal approach to controversies, as well as an apparent desire by top advisers to distance Obama from troubles threatening his administration. Obama spokesman Jay Carney defended the decision to keep the president out of the loop on the Internal Revenue Service audit, saying Obama was comfortable with the fact that “some matters are not appropriate to convey to him, and this is one of them.”
Who Knew What Two congressional committees are stepping up their investigations into the IRS with hearings. Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman will be questioned today, along with Steven Miller, who took over as acting commissioner in November. Last week, Miller was forced to resign. (AP)
Republicans, however, are accusing the president of being unaware of important happenings in the government he oversees. “It seems to be the answer of the administration whenever they’re caught doing something they
shouldn’t be doing is, ‘I didn’t know about it,’ ” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. “And it causes me to wonder whether they believe willful ignorance is a defense.” Obama advisers argue that the outcry from Republicans would be far worse had McDonough or White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler told the president about the IRS audit before it became public, thereby raising questions about White House interference. Still, the White House’s own shifting information about who knew what and when is keeping the focus of the IRS cont rovers y on t he West W i ng. CHARLES BABINGTON and JULIE PACE (AP)

Wave of Attacks Destabilizes Iraq

Taliban Responsible for Bombing That Killed 14 A suicide bomber dressed in a police uniform killed 14 people, including a prominent provincial council chief, outside the council headquarters in northern Afghanistan on Monday, authorities said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in Pul-i-Khumri. Taliban insurgents have been carrying out attacks and assassinations intended to intimidate both officials and civilians ahead of next year’s withdrawal of most international troops. (AP) BEIRUT
28 Hezbollah Militants Killed in Syrian Civil War Hezbollah was pulled more deeply into Syria’s civil war as 28 guerrillas from the Lebanese Shiite militant group were killed and dozens more wounded while fighting rebels, Syrian activists said Monday. The intense battle drove rebels from large parts of the town of Qusair, part of a withering government offensive aimed at securing a strategic land corridor from Damascus to the Mediterranean coast. (AP) TIMIKA, INDONESIA
Rescuers: 3 More Bodies Recovered From Mine Rescuers recovered three more bodies Monday from a collapsed underground room at a giant U.S.-owned gold and copper mine in Indonesia, bringing the confirmed death toll to 17, officials said. Eleven others were believed buried. The mine collapsed last week when 38 workers were undergoing safety training. Ten miners were rescued. (AP)
A surge of attacks killed at least 95 people in Shiite and Sunni areas of Iraq on Monday, officials said, pushing the death toll over the past week to more than 240 and extending one of the most sustained bouts of sectarian violence the country has seen in years. The bloodshed is still far shy of the pace, scale and brutality of the dark days of 2006-2007, when Sunni and Shiite militias carried out retaliatory attacks against each other in a cycle of violence that left the country awash in blood. Still, Monday’s attacks have heightened fears that the country could be heading toward civil war. Sectarian tensions have been worsening since Iraq’s minority Sunnis began protesting what they say is mistreatment at the hands of the Shiite-led government. The
Bloodshed on the Rise The worst of Monday’s violence took place in Baghdad, where 10 car bombs ripped through Shiite areas — including the Kamaliya neighborhood, shown — killing at least 48 people and wounding more than 150, officials said. The cities of Basra, Hillah and Balad were also hit Monday, as was the Sunni city of Samarra. No group claimed responsibility for the attacks. (AP)
mass demonstrations, which began in December, have largely been peaceful, but the number of attacks rose sharply after a deadly security crackdown on a Sunni protest
camp in northern Iraq on April 23. Monday marked the deadliest day in Iraq in more than 20 months and raised the nationwide death toll since last Wednesday alone to
more than 240 people, according to an AP count. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki accused militant groups of trying to exploit Iraq’s political instability to exacerbate sectarian tensions at home and blamed the recent spike in violence on the wider unrest in the region, particularly in neighboring Syria. At the same time, he pledged Monday that insurgents “will not be able to bring back the atmosphere of the sectarian war.” Many Sunnis here contend that much of the country’s current turmoil is rooted in decisions made by al-Maliki’s government. The surge in bloodshed has exasperated Iraqis, who have lived for years with the fear and uncertainty bred of random violence. “How long do we have to continue living like this, with all the lies from the government?” asked Baghdad resident Malik Ibrahim, 23. “Whenever they say they have reached a solution, the bombings come back stronger than before.” SINAN SAL AHEDDIN (AP)
Germans Balk at Autobahn Limit Berlin For many in this car-crazy nation, the freedom to hurtle down the famed autobahn at 120 mph or more is an inalienable right. Germany, one of the world’s top car producers, is alone among industrial countries in allowing drivers to decide for themselves how fast to race along the highway. So a proposal this month to impose a speed limit of 75 mph has set off an election-year battle that has some people questioning a basic tenet of German identity. The suggestion from a top opposition leader challenged Germans to pick two popular obsessions — safety and sustainability — over another: a need to use their 500-horsepower engines to catapult
Backstory On 60 percent of Germany’s autobahn, drivers are free to go as fast as they wish, and German-made BMWs and Mercedeses frequently shoot down the left lane at 120 mph. Elsewhere on the highways, usually in areas where traffic is heavier or near cities, there are speed limits of roughly 60 to 75 mph. (AP)
themselves across the countryside. On speed limits, “the rest of the world has been doing it for a long
time,” Sigmar Gabriel, chairman of the Social Democratic Party, told the Rheinische Post. Trafﬁc deaths have been dropping for years in Germany, but Gabriel said they would drop faster if there were a speed limit. His proposal was quickly disowned by other senior members of his party. Last week, lawmakers debated the speed limit in Parliament. No action is expected before September parliamentary elections. “There won’t be a general speed limit on Germany’s highways under my rule,” Transportation Minister Peter Ramsauer said in a statement. Ramsauer is an amateur pianist who released a CD of slow classical compositions intended to calm drivers on the autobahn. MICHAEL BIRNBAUM (THE WASHINGTON POST)

A Measles Surge in U.K. Disease resurfaces more than 10 years after vaccine scare London
by aaron posner dir. howard shalwitz
More than a decade ago, British parents refused to give measles shots to at least a million children because of now discredited research that linked the vaccine to autism. Now, health officials are scrambling to catch up and stop a growing epidemic of the disease. This year, the U.K. has had more than 1,200 cases of measles, after a record number of nearly 2,000 cases last year. The country once recorded only several dozen cases every year. It now ranks second in Europe, behind Romania. Last month, emergency vaccination clinics were held every weekend in Wales, the epicenter of the outbreak. Immunization drives have also started elsewhere in the country, with ofﬁcials aiming to reach 1 million children ages 10 to 16.
Backstory A 1998 paper published by Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues suggested a link between autism and the combined childhood vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, called the MMR. Several studies failed to find any connection and the paper was eventually retracted. Still, MMR immunization rates plummeted across the U.K. as parents abandoned the vaccine. Among British children ages 10 to 16, the vaccination rate is slightly below 50 percent in some regions. (AP)
70% The decrease seen in measles deaths worldwide since 2001, thanks to vaccines. But measles is still one of the leading causes of death in children under 5. (AP)
There’s “this group of older children who have never been immunized who are a large pool of infections,” said Dr. David Elliman, spokesman for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. The majority of those getting

sick had never been vaccinated. Health worker Portia Ncube said the epidemic is helping to persuade parents to get the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. “Some of them are now sensible enough to come in and get their children vaccinated,” she said. Ellen Christensen, who has an infant son, said she had had “irrational qualms” about the vaccine. “But after reading more about it, I know now that immunization is not only good for your own child, it’s good for everyone,” she said.

NEW N! VERSIO
Is Summer Traffic Avoidable? Everyone knows that traffic to the Ocean City/Rehoboth area can get very backed up, but do the same problems exist for those of us headed to Virginia Beach? Is there an area we should have a backup plan to get around? I assume travel on Friday will be very congested? The trip through Northern Virginia on I-95 is likely to be the most difficult of all the D.C. getaways — not only this Friday for the holiday getaway but throughout the summer. Many of you know that this is normally a highly congested area. This summer will be special: Drivers will see the maximum impact from the
95 Express Lanes construction project. Most of the work is in the median, but it’s still likely to have a big effect on the regular lanes.
(“Rush” is such an odd term for what happens on that route on a Friday night, though we all use the word.)
I’m planning on taking a short weekend trip to Dewey Beach in early June. I work in downtown D.C. When would be the best time to try to leave town? I can’t leave work until 5 p.m. on Friday. Is it best to just go home for a few hours and wait until the evening traffic dies down? Yes. Otherwise, you’re likely to be in a pretty bad mood when you finally reach Dewey Beach.
Do you have any predictions for the impact of summer vacations on the daily commute in the D.C. region? The past two weeks, I have seen longer than average commutes, so I am hopeful that as we approach the summer vacation season, I will see more days with shorter than average commutes. The summer traffic patterns in the D.C. region are really complicated. It depends on whether you’re talking about local streets or highways, Mondays and Fridays versus other

weekdays, and weather conditions. For example, I-95, the East Coast Main Street, is likely to stay pretty busy. Traffic on secondary commuter routes will diminish once schools close and Congress leaves.
Do you happen to know whether traffic in the D.C. region is lighter on Mondays or Fridays? I need to pick a telework day, and I’d like to pick the one (either Friday or Monday) that has the worse traffic. Fridays and Mondays are generally the lightest days of the week, so I think you wouldn’t be doing too badly with either choice. But I think Friday afternoons can be problematic as people leave town for the weekend. So I would vote for taking Friday as the telework day.

Grocery store shelves burst at the seams with upwards of 10,000 new food and beverage products to choose from each year. No wonder we’re stressed out. Even though many of those products won’t make it past their ﬁ rst year, some of them ﬁrst will make the most of America’s ﬁ ckle eating habits and even ﬁckle change are consumption hab-

Plus, people want to achieve a healthy nutritional balance that allows them to live longer and feel better and they often look to food for that. With many people shunning their traditional doctors’ visits and instead self-medicating with nutrition-related remedies, it goes to follow that the food choices we make matter more.

Cabinets and closets in American households might currently contain more than 10 gallons worth of harmful chemicals, but with harmful chemicals getting a bad rap all around, experts say this number will likely decrease each year.
Although they’re disguised by names like formaldehyde, phenol, hydrochloride acid, perchlorethylene and petroleum distillates, toxic chemicals lurk in everything from the fragrances of air fresheners to carpet cleaners; dishwasher detergents to furniture polish. There’s plenty of clear evidence that these harsh chemicals pose a health danger, and there are other chemicals out there that have never even been tested.

Neighbors Decry Soon-to-Open Strip Club
JP’s use of ‘private alcoves’ also concerns fellow club owners Washington
Neighborhood advocates and stripclub owners don’t often agree on what’s best for a community. But on this they do: A soon-to-open business on an upscale city street could change the nature of nude dancing in the District. When JP’s gentlemen’s club opens in a few weeks in Glover Park, it won’t have a kitchen. Instead, that space will be used to serve up nude dancing not just on
stage but also in “private alcoves” and on tabletops, making the club different from its competitors. “It begs the question of what’s going to go on there,” said advisory neighborhood commissioner Jackie Blumenthal, the blueprints for the club open in her living room. A dismayed competitor put it more bluntly: “Washington has one of the cleanest strip-club attitudes in the whole nation. This is going to change the whole city.” Residents and fellow strip-club owners say that the plans for the new JP’s differ enough from the old establishment that the D.C. Alcohol Beverage Control Board, which oversees the licenses for strip clubs,
Rite of Passage
Backstory The new owners of JP’s bought the license and name after a fire shut down the original operation in 2008. They say their plans fall in line with regulations, including a 3-foot rule that separates entertainers from customers. When the place opens, they say, patrons can expect to find an upscale business in line with Georgetown, even if it doesn’t resemble the old JP’s, in operation since 1986. “It’s not our intention to be held to the standard of what any other club is doing,” said Paul Kadlick, a representative for the owners. ( T WP)
should hold a public hearing before the place is allowed to open. The board, which has received letters outlining these concerns, has decided otherwise. It will allow the new owners of JP’s, BJ Enterprises, to reactivate the license before the board decides on the issue of

“Once [customers] learn another place oﬀers sanctioned VIP cubicles, it will open Pandora’s box.”
“substantial change,” spokesman Bill Hager said. Once the license is reactivated, he said, it will be subject to renewal. All the while, the club will be allowed to operate. Other strip-club owners were surprised by the board’s position, believing if they made major changes, their plans would be subject to scrutiny beforehand, not after. The ABC Board now oversees 20 licenses for class C night clubs that are allowed to offer nude dancing. Of those, 11 are operating and nine offer nude entertainment. The other licenses, including the one for JP’s, remain inactive with the board. T H E R E S A VA R G A S

D.C. has awarded $1.7 billion in tax breaks to developers in the past decade, and more than a third of that total has gone to 10 developers that donated the most to city politicians’ campaigns over that time. That’s according to an investigation by WAMU-FM, which examined the political contributions of developers that have received subsidies from the city. It found that groups receiving subsidies gave more than $2.5 million to political campaigns in the district. Nearly half of the donors used multiple afﬁliates to contribute, and 19 of them had more than 10 afﬁliates. District law allows for businesspeople to make donations from multiple limited-liability corporations. The 10 developers that donated the most were part of teams that received $641 million in subsidies. (AP)

Looking for a good deal on a sixpack of beer? Try Charlotte, N.C. A haircut that won’t burn a hole in your wallet? Harlingen, Texas, is your best bet. A trip to the movies? Hilo, Hawaii, is supposed to be nice this time of year. But you likely won’t find many of those bargains in the District. That’s according to the country’s latest cost-of-living index, released last week by the Council for Community and Economic Research, which takes into account the average price of everything from a bottle of shampoo to a mortgage in more than 300 urban areas.
The areas ranked as the most expensive places to live include most of the usual suspects, with New York’s Manhattan and Brooklyn boroughs taking the top two slots. But for the third year in a row, D.C. snagged a spot in the top 10, driven by the region’s high-priced housing market and relative immunity from the economic downturn. “Since the beginning of the Great Recession, Washington has catapulted itself into the top 10 based on the housing market,” said Dean Frutiger, project manager for the Cost of Living Index at the council. Washington — which took ninth place in the first quarter— traditionally remained just shy of the top 10 high-cost urban areas, often swapping places with Boston, Frutiger said. Housing here is more than twice as expensive as in the rest of the

country. Groceries are 12.8 percent more expensive, while health care is 1.6 percent more expensive. The index is calculated by measuring how much goods and services cost in six categories: housing, utilities, transportation, groceries, health care and miscellaneous items. The index doesn’t account for inflation and uses the pre-tax value of goods and services, so actual figures could vary. For the third consecutive year, the city with the lowest cost of living was Harlingen, Texas. Amrita Jayakumar (The Washington POst)

Twister Ravages Okla. A mile-wide tornado levels much of Moore, including an elementary school
1 Fire rages Monday afternoon in the wake of a powerful tornado in Moore, Okla. Officials warned of dangerous downed power lines and open gas lines as survivors and emergency crews searched through the rubble.
The twister carved a path of destruction at least a mile wide as it cut through Moore.
Rescue workers pull a boy out from under a collapsed wall at Plaza Towers Elementary School, which was devastated by the storm.

A monstrous tornado as much as a mile wide with winds up to 200 mph roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs Monday, flattening entire neighborhoods, setting buildings on fire and landing a direct blow on an elementary school. The storm laid waste to scores of buildings in Moore, south of the city. Block after block of the community lay in ruins, with heaps of debris piled where homes used to be. Cars and trucks were left crumpled. As of Express’ deadline, CNN had reported at least 10 deaths. “Our worst fears are becoming realized this afternoon,” Bill Bunting, with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center, told CNN soon after the tornado struck. At Plaza Towers Elementary School, the storm knocked down walls and turned the playground into twisted plastic and metal. Several children were pulled alive from the rubble. Rescue workers passed the survivors down a human chain to a triage center in the parking lot. James Rushing, who lives across the street from the school, heard reports of the approaching tornado and ran to the school, where his 5-year-old foster son, Aiden, attends classes. Rushing believed he would be safer there. “About two minutes after I got there, the school started coming apart,” he said. Students hid in the restroom. “There’s no safe room in the school,” Rushing said, adding that his home was also destroyed. Monday was the second day of deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma: A tornado near Shawnee, 30 miles east of Moore, killed two people Sunday. TIM TALLEY (AP)
Suburb Hit Again — and Again A monster tornado slammed the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on May, 3, 1999. That storm had the highest winds ever recorded near the earth’s surface —302 mph — and claimed more than 40 lives. The twister ranked as an F-5 on the Fujita scale, an “incredible” twister with wind speeds from 261 to 318 mph and the ability to disintegrate strong frame dwellings. Moore is no stranger to tornadoes: It was also hit by an F-3 on Oct. 4, 1998, and an F-4 on May 8, 2003. Early estimates put Monday’s twister at an EF-4 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, meaning winds between 166 and 200 mph. (AP/ T WP)

Nationals Adam LaRoche’s career is deﬁned by peaks and valleys. Just a month ago, LaRoche was in the midst of a slump that saw the slugger go without a hit in seven consecutive games. But since April ended, he has experienced one of the ﬁnest stretches of his career. LaRoche entered Monday’s game against San Francisco with a career-best 16-game hitting streak. With his power lacking early in the year, the ﬁrst baseman changed his approach at the plate. “I’m seeing [the ball] longer and getting comfortable,” he said.

runs have came on the Nationals’ current West Coast trip. One came in the series ﬁnale against the Dodgers and the other three were hit against the Padres. Enter ing Monday night ’s game, LaRoche boasted a teamhigh .356 batting average and 1.028 OPS in May. “He’s such a good hitter, and he’s such a smart hitter,” manager Davey Johnson said. “With him, it’s always just a little timing issue.

where he’s at.” For his career, LaRoche has a .254 batting average in May. He usually heats up in the second half of the season; he hits above .290 in each of the last three months. The 33-year-old’s discipline at
the plate has helped him get hot a little earlier than usual. During a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs on May 12, the Cubs shifted their defense to LaRoche’s right to prepare for the left-handed pull hitter. Instead, LaRoche took a pitch placed on the outside corner down the third base line for a slow roller. Out of position, the Cubs’ defense was unable to throw LaRoche out at ﬁrst, giving him an inﬁeld hit. The more LaRoche reaches base, the more successful the Nationals’ offense will become. “I’m being a little bit more patient overall, tak ing some walks and getting some better hitters’ counts,” LaRoche said. “For a while, for a week or two, it felt like I was 1-2 every at-bat and in a defensive mode. Getting back to seeing it again is nice.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods had a dispute at this month’s Players Championship.
Woods: No Plans To Make Amends Tiger says he did not reach out to Garcia over disrupted swing Golf Tiger Woods spoke for about 20 minutes Monday on the state of his game, belly putters, the U.S. Open and AT&T National. As he was wrapping up, he needed just one word to cover the topic of Sergio Garcia. Asked if he had any thought of contacting Garcia to make amends between the two, Woods quickly answered: “No.” He smiled. Nearly everyone else in the room laughed. The relationship between Woods and Garcia — hardly the best of friends — hit petty proportions during this month’s Players Championship over a dispute as to whether Woods inadvertently or maliciously disrupted the Spaniard’s swing when they were paired together during the tournament’s third round. Woods’ expression said it all: They won’t be calling a truce anytime soon. Woods was very much at ease as

he looked ahead to next month’s U.S. Open at Merion near Philadelphia and AT&T National, which is run by his charitable foundation and will be played again at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda. His mood was hardly surprising, given how well he’s been playing. Woods already has four PGA Tour wins this year and will be the defending champion at AT&T National, although it’s been nearly ﬁve years since he last won a major. As for AT&T National, Woods reiterated his desire to keep the tournament at Congressional. The current deal with the club runs through next year, and the club’s members — some of whom aren’t happy with the annual disruptions that come with hosting the event — are set to vote later this year whether to welcome the tournament for another three years.

The Magic were back in the lottery the next two years but were busy playing in the postseason every spring since until this one, when they finished an NBA-worst 20-62 after sending Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers last August in
a four-team deal. That gives them a 25 percent chance at winning the rights to choose first in a draft that appears uncertain. Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel is considered the top choice, though he could miss the first two months of the season while recovering from a torn ACL. BRIAN MAHONEY (AP)

The choices remaining for the host location of Super Bowl L in 2016: the San Francisco Bay area and South Florida. NFL owners will decide today where the Super Bowl will celebrate a half-century of existence. The 49ers’ new stadium, now under construction, is scheduled to open for the 2014 season. With the NFL showing a penchant for bringing its championship game to new venues — Dallas and Indianapolis recently, New Jersey next February — Santa Clara would appear to have a strong chance. Only once has the Bay Area staged a Super Bowl, in 1985 at Stanford Stadium. (AP)
Big Business Funding 2014 Games Russian companies, tycoons to foot most of $51 billion bill Olympics The mountains of Sochi, Russia, are now home to Potanin’s slope, Gazprom’s gondola lift and Sberbank’s ski jump. The nicknames used by locals and an army of construction workers leave no doubt about who is paying for the 2014 Winter Games: Russia’s business powerhouses. Other countries that have host-
ed the Olympics have overwhelmingly used public funds to pay for the construction of needed venues and new infrastructure. The Russian government, however, has gotten state-controlled companies and tycoons to foot more than half of the bill, which now stands at $51 billion and makes the 2014 Winter Games by far the most expensive Olympics in history. In contrast, the much-larger 2012 Summer Olympics in London cost about $14.3 billion and the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing cost about $40 billion. For Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Games have been a mat-
ter of pride. He has entrusted the country’s top businessmen with Sochi’s key projects. He himself is spending increasing amounts of time in the southern Russian city, hosting world leaders at his luxurious presidential palace. Mi k ha i l K a sya nov, a former prime minister under Putin, described the tycoons’ participation as a tax imposed by the president. “If you want to carry on doing business in Russia, here’s the tax you need to pay — the kind of a tax that he wants you to pay,” Kasyanov, now an opposition leader, told the Associated Press.

Guinea Pig | Bud System Koss FitBuds ($30, Koss.com) are meant for listening to freestyle, not swimming freestyle. So Olympian Dara Torres, who helped the brand — recently featured on “Mad Men” — develop the Fit Series, can’t don the sweat-resistant buds in the pool. But we can see why she looks satisfied on the packaging: Our testers could barely feel the lightweight set. And it comes with three cushion sizes, so every active Goldilocks gets just the right earful.

Liberation Of Roam A half-dozen people walked in to Roam Fitness for a recent class, and then they immediately went outside again. They weren’t ditching the new gym, an intimate space in the basement of Glover Park’s Savoy Suites Hotel. They were embracing its motto: “Fitness without boundaries.” Although Roam has a physical space — along with cardio equipment, barbells, balls and mats — members are encouraged to spend as little time in there as possible. “People want to do real stuff again,” says co-founder Graham King, who believes this whole city can serve as a gym. “You don’t have to imagine the hills. You can run the hills.” And you certainly will during Roam’s signature class, OutRun, which is offered most mornings and weekday evenings. Developed by co-
founder Chris Geier, it’s a group run for people who want to do more than just log mileage. About every quarter-mile to half-mile, Geier barks out a command to halt and perform a strength-training exercise. It can be burpees, lunges and sit-ups in a patch of grass, toe raises on the edge of a curb, tricep dips on a stair railing or pull-ups on a playground set. Geier totes along resistance bands in his backpack for extra challenges, and sometimes another trainer shows up midway through the 3-to-5-mile route with goodies such as kettlebells or sandbags — and, thankfully, water. “There’s always a little bit of the unknown. You don’t know what you’re going to get,” says Andrew Meehan, 31, who’s been coming back even though he doesn’t typically like to run. Part of Geier’s sales pitch for the program is that you never need to go all that far at once, which makes the distance more doable for people who don’t think of themselves as runners. Still scared? He plans to
Roam Fitness co-founder Chris Geier, in the visor, leads a group on an OutRun through Glover Park — with stops to plank, carry sandbags and lift logs.
Details Try classes at Roam Fitness for free through May 31. Membership options will be $50-$95, depending on the number of classes and personal training sessions included. All members receive 15 percent off at Twist (the hotel’s restaurant) and 10 percent off personal training. Drop-in classes will be $25, or available in 10-packs for $200. A free seven-day membership will also be available to newcomers. Get more information at Roamfitnessdc.com. TEDDY WOLFF PHOTOS/FOR EXPRESS

offer intro OutRuns soon, as well as outings for advanced runners, dog owners and parents with strollers. No matter who’s in each group, Geier says, the frequent stops help keep everyone together: “I don’t give them a chance to separate.”
Out There: The gym offers four types of classes, all of which can be held outside, says co-founder Graham King. In addition to OutRun, the schedule features RowCon (think cycling class, but on rowing machines and with calisthenics added), Yoga + Mobility (poses blended with dynamic athletic drills, designed to get folks moving off the mat) and Barbell 5/3/1 (a structured strengthbuilding program). These three are held outside only in nice weather, while OutRun isn’t dependent on the forecast. The only reason it’ll get canceled? Lightning.
Between chitchatting en route and the partner exercises, OutRun is a social experience, says 24-yearold Mariella Torres. That helps her push harder than she would if she were training solo. But the reason she’s “obsessed” with the program is that it’s introduced her to her own neighborhood. “I’ve lived here for a year and a half, and there are trails we’ve been on that I didn’t know existed,” Torres says. Geier’s hobby is tracking down interesting tunnels, gardens and greenery, and he strives to pick routes with a few surprises along the way. There are a bunch of gems around Glover Park and Georgetown, but he also has plans to take advantage of the hotel van — which can haul 20 people — to start OutRuns from different spots around the region. He’d like to get folks over to Fort Dupont Park in Southeast and into Virginia for a visit to the Mount Vernon Trail. “I want them always seeing something new,” Geier says. And that includes a better view in the mirror. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Terrible Timing For a Breakup I’ve been dating this guy for almost two years, and as of a few weeks ago, was ready to seriously consider breaking up with him. And then his father was diagnosed with cancer. It feels so wrong to even consider breaking up now. But I honestly don’t see our issues getting any better. I sort of want to cut my losses but not hurt him unduly. FEELING STUCK

Don’t Spoil Your Friendship How can I stop being so judgmental about some friends of mine who I think are very spoiled? They are almost 27 years old, but they still live like college students, getting a lot of financial support from their parents. (One’s just bought them a nice condo.) BOY, ARE THE Y IRRITATING I’m sure some of their behavior is annoying. But you’ve got to do some soul-searching to determine why it feels so personal to you. Are you struggling ﬁnancially? Do you have issues with your own parents that make your friends’ seemingly charmed lives feel particularly painful? Or is it them — do they ﬂaunt it? Are they spoiled or irresponsible in ways that make them bad friends? Occasional, f leeting envy or

resentment at someone’s oversized Easy Street mansion is always normal, as anyone who’s ever logged into Facebook knows. But dwelling on it can make your own negative feelings worse and is often indicative of stress or insecurity about your own life. If they’re good people overall and still well-matched to you as friends (a big “if”), you’d be wise to examine your own feelings and see if something deeper has been getting your goat lately.
There’s no doubt that this is an excruciating situation to be in, but I think you realize that staying with him solely because of his dad’s diagnosis won’t do anyone any favors. Still, dropping an additional stress bomb isn’t helpful, either, so spend the next few weeks giving him the support he needs as the reality of the diagnosis sets in. When the initial shock wanes, you can initiate discussions about your feelings. (This also buys you time to make sure that breaking up is what you really want.) Once the breakup is done, there’s a chance he’ll want you out of his life completely. But if he’s willing to be one of the few cases where “Let’s remain friends” actually carries some truth, you can continue to be a support for him and his family even once you’re no longer his girlfriend.

The Jazz Swinger Workout: Like the f lappers of the 1920s, attendees at Speakeasy Sweat left class with a ﬂush in their cheeks. “It was a lot harder than I expected,” said Natalie Draisin, 25, who had planned to go straight to the ofﬁce from class. “I think I’m gonna have to take a shower.”
Speakeasy Sweat takes a Zumba class back to Gatsby’s era With “The Great Gatsby” in theaters, it seems the Jazz Age is all the rage. Even “Downton Abbey” has finally entered the 1920s. So it was only a matter of time until Washington Sports Clubs followed suit.
Crowd: The time-traveling
What It Is: “Where am I this morning?” instructor Alani Kravitz asked her class last Wednesday. “In a flapper dress.” The attire fit the mood for Speakeasy Sweat, a 45-minute Zumba class with a twist. Instead of the traditional Latin rhythms, cardio seekers shake it to the kind of swing music you’d expect at a Gatsby bash.
Moves: Forget salsa, rumba and meringue. Speakeasy Sweat relies on the classic dance of the 1920s — the Charleston. “In t he ’20s, t he Charleston was sort of a liberation,” says Kravitz, who holds a degree in musical theater. “They were broken free of this rigid ‘you have to waltz’ [idea].” The step mimics salsa’s rightfoot-forward, left-foot-back sim-
The kicks in the Charleston encourage students’ heart rates to spike.
plicity — but with a serious kick. “It’s even more cardio than regular Zumba,” Kravitz says. Don’t get too comfortable ﬂinging your limbs, however, because Kravitz has other ways to hoof it. When a rock ’n’ roll version of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” started playing, she switched to a prowling style of choreography that looked borrowed from a Bob Fosse number. “The slow ones let people really melt into the movement,” Kravitz says of the slinkier routines.
work it out
opportunity lured Blair Coward, 25, who was intrigued by the Gatsbyish vibe after watching the movie and falling for its soundtrack. She was in luck: Half of the songs came from the Jay-Z-curated album. Just as Gatsby invited everyone to his house parties, the class welcomes anyone who wants to dance. A background in Zumba isn’t required — and neither is a viewing of the Leonardo DiCaprio ﬂick. (“You can just have a healthy appreciation for the 1920s,” Coward said.)
Garb: Only Kravitz wore fringe, but long strings of pearls and jaunty hats may help you get into the swing of things.

Say the Right Thing When a woman has a double mastectomy, her partner shouldn’t be at a loss for words After Angelina Jolie learned she carried a “faulty” BRCA1 gene, which dramatically increases the risk of breast cancer, she had a double mastectomy. By her side was fiance Brad Pitt, who said, “All I want is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children.” Not every guy is quite as perfect. When Elissa Bantug of Columbia, Md., came home after her double mastectomy in 2005, her live-in boyfriend slept in the guest room to give her “space to spread out and heal.” Bantug wishes she’d said, “I need you here.’ ”

UNDERGONE A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY
Conversation doesn’t always come easily when mastectomy is the subject, says oncology counselor Shara Sosa of Life with Cancer, a Fairfax-based support program. She’s heard men joke, “Look, babe, you get a free boob job!” Some women might laugh; others will cringe. Even the best-intentioned remark (“I never cared about your breasts”) can backﬁre if the woman is mourning their loss. “It’s OK [for the partner] to say, ‘I miss them, too,’ ” says Lindsey Hoskins, a marriage therapist in Bethesda. Then add: “I love you for all the parts of you. I’m not going to love you any less.” While Jolie has said she feels “beautiful” after her reconstructive surgery, couples may struggle. A rebuilt-breast-in-progress, with drains and red incisions, might bring a look of shock or confusion to the

With help from Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie is recovering from a double mastectomy.
Resources A woman who’s tested positive for a BRCA mutation — or who wants to find out if she’s at risk — can turn to several groups for support: Bright Pink (Brightpink.org). The informative site for this national group has an online quiz to assess risk. Contact the D.C. metro chapter at WashingtonDC@bebrightpink.org. Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (Facingourrisk.org). With the acronym FORCE, this national group has a comprehensive site, with tools to record your medical history.

partner’s face, says Lillie Shockney, administrative director of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. Reviewing photos that depict the stages of reconstruction can be instructive.
After surgery, a couple’s intimate life may change. A reconstructed breast offers diminished sexual sensation in some patients, no feeling in others. Women have told Sosa, “I let him touch them but it’s not enjoyable.” Sosa suggests women be direct about what they do want. Recovering from her double mastectomy, Sue Friedman, who heads the group Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, would tell her husband exactly what she needed. Some days it would be “Tell me I’m beautiful.” Partners, meanwhile, can make amends for mess-ups. Ask for a doover, Sosa advises. And plead ignorance: “I don’t know what this is like for you, but I’ll be with you every step of the way.” Bantug and her boyfriend can testify that it’s possible to rebound from a rocky start. They did go on to talk about her surgery. He told her that cosmetic concerns are “just that — superﬁcial.” Today, they’re happily married with kids.

EASY BAKED BARBECUE CHICKEN BREASTS
Ingredients 1 ⁄2 cup ketchup 1 to 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles in adobo) 2 teaspoons packed dark brown sugar, or to taste 2 tablespoons cider vinegar 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts without the filet (a total of 2 to 3 breasts, each about 3 ⁄4- to 1-inch thick) 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup panko breadcrumbs 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
Makes Four Servings Heat the oven to 350 F. In a bowl, combine the ketchup, adobo sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Line a shallow baking dish with foil, leaving enough excess to overhang the sides. Spread half of the sauce on the foil. Arrange the breasts on top of the sauce and spoon the
remaining sauce over them. Bring the edges of the foil up and over the chicken and fold it to enclose them. Bake the breasts on the middle shelf of the oven for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium, heat the oil. Add the breadcrumbs, thyme, a pinch of salt and some pepper. Saute until light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside. Open the foil around the chicken. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over it. Continue baking, uncovered, until the chicken is just cooked through, an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, and then slice and serve.

WEEK 8: SUPPORT
One of the most important tools you can have on a ﬁtness journey is the support of others. Whether it comes from a personal trainer, a signiﬁcant other or even your coworkers, support can inspire you to overcome setbacks, push yourself to lift heavier and run longer, and give you the physical and emotional strength you need to achieve your goals.
Why is support so important?
Who in your life has been supporting you?
Support is the number one thing clients need. If they don’t have support, it’s very easy for them to fall back into bad health habits. Frustration will set in for everyone, but as long as you have support and keep thinking positively, you can overcome that frustration. Sometimes, we need that support to ignore the little voices in our heads telling us to eat something bad or to skip a workout.
Patrick, of course; he’s been accessible 24/7 to answer questions and when I think I can’t do another set of reps, he shows me that I can. My mom and dad have supported me by helping to ﬁx meals when I’m too tired or busy. This past weekend at a celebratory dinner, my father, knowing I wanted to avoid eating dessert, left the dinner early to walk me with so I wouldn’t be alone or forced to watch everyone else enjoy dessert. And my best friend Roger is starting to join me at the gym to help push me even more.

Why should people get support for losing weight and getting healthy? No matter where you are — be it in a restaurant, at work, at a party or even at home — there will always be people trying to sabotage your weight loss success, however innocently. Co-workers will bake cakes, offices will provide lunches and grandmothers will say you’re not eating enough. Losing weight is hard to do alone, and I’ve found that having someone there to hold you accountable really makes a difference. Most important, by surrounding myself with a support system, I now eat, breathe and live a healthy lifestyle — so that better health is no longer just what I want but who I am.

Beyond Just Pushing Buttons
Human On the Inside On ‘Random Access Memories,’ Daft Punk proves that there are people in those helmets Music It’s tempting to say Daft Punk has gone Hollywood. The influential French electronic duo crafted its ﬁrst ﬁlm score, for “Tron: Legacy,” three years ago and is now releasing a well-ﬁnanced, smartly hyped pop album featuring what it calls an ensemble cast of contemporary singers and veteran musicians. There’s long been a show-biz bent to the work of Thomas Bangalter and
REVIEW: A heady mix of delayed gratification songs that push boundaries, “Random Access Memories” is the mirror image of its authors: mysterious, challenging, brave and a little bit crazy. (AP)
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, who for the past 13 years have hidden their faces in public appearances by wearing robot helmets and costumes. Bangalter compares the mystique-building masks to an ever-evolving comic-book superhero who starts as a side story “then maybe 50 years later it becomes like a big franchise movie in Hollywood.” Yet Daft Punk’s new album, “Random Access Memories,” isn’t the special effects-ﬁlled summer blockbuster you might expect. The group that helped popularize electronic dance music in the United States has used almost exclusively live instrumentation. At a time when drum machines and urgent computergenerated chords dominate the charts, Daft Punk went the opposite direction.
Daft Punk helped lead the charge for the EDM (electronic dance music) genre. Being one with the machines is kind of the point of being an EDM DJ/producer. It’s a quest that begat Girl Talk and Skrillex. But is that making music? Isn’t being a DJ or producer just pushing buttons? Daft Punk’s new album,“Random AcBy Shauna cess Memories,” is a Miller legit disco record, with live instrumentation by session heavies including Chic frontman Nile Rogers and Fourplay bassist Nathan East. There are full orchestra parts that sound like the Moody Blues. It’s not all retro: Vocals by rapper Pharrell and Animal Collective’s Panda Bear fit right in. It’s an expansively (and expensively) produced record. Daft Punk is showing what that term “producer” used to mean and can still mean. It is pushing buttons, but it’s also dreaming, recruiting, composing, conceptualizing, conducting, editing and being obsessive. “Doin’ It Right,” featuring Panda Bear, boils it down: “If you’re doing it right/ everybody will be dancing.” U Street Music Hall will host a listening party for the album tonight, where you can see the results of that theory in action. U Street Music Hall, 1115 U St. NW; today, 8 p.m., $5 ages 18-20, free for ages 21 and up; 202-588-1880, Ustreetmusichall.com. (U Street)
“Human voices in pop music are becoming more and more robotic,” Bangalter says. The album “is a robotic project and a technological one that is trying to get more and more human.” The group linked up with players who could evoke its favorite music — Chic, early Michael Jackson, Steely Dan,
Fleetwood Mac — and lay a musical bed for vocalists including Julian Casablancas, Panda Bear from Animal Collective and Pharrell. It’s a long way from the two-man home studio productions that deﬁned the ﬁrst three Daft Punk albums. “Making music with musicians and bringing back a certain craftsmanship, that was totally unfamiliar for us,” Bangalter says. “It’s funny because it was somehow a luxury to be able to do that. But … it was not a comfortable position.” Beginning with “Bring Life Back to Music,” the album’s lyrics seem in dialogue with today’s electronic dance scene, which the group has been critical of. It says current laptop production software makes the genre’s music both too easy to create and too similar.
“I think people are really more excited to see the robots than they would be to see ourselves. … The robots are far more trippy.” — GU Y-MANUEL DE HOMEM-CHRISTO, ONE HALF OF FRENCH DUO DAFT PUNK
“And yet, technology is this wonderful thing,” Bangalter says. “We are definitely using it on the record in a much more invisible way.” When Daft Punk released its last proper album, “Human After All,” in 2005, Facebook was still just for college students and Twitter didn’t exist. To return to cinema comparisons, Bangalter and de Homem-Christo are electro-pop’s Terrence Malick: taking their time with new projects, mostly staying out of the press and keeping their faces anonymous so they can live normal lives. It’s gone according to plan: Their music is known, while their personalities and personal lives are not. “People seem really to get it,” de Homem-Christo says. “We’ve been doing that for a while and everybody approves apparently. The star system, the idol, the cult of personality is not the only way to be in entertainment.” RYAN PEARSON (AP)

‘In Theory, I’m Finished’ Steven Soderbergh says he’s done with filmmaking, but it’s not quite his final act
Smaller Screen Though Steven Soderbergh, left, may be done with movies, he’s not finished working with cameras and actors. His film “Behind the Candelabra” is airing Sunday on HBO, and he’s currently contemplating several TV projects. “There’s a lot of great stuff being made” on TV, Soderbergh says. “You can go narrow and deep, and I like that. And this is all [ because of “The Sopranos” creator] David Chase. He singlehandedly rebuilt the landscape. Anything that’s on now that’s any good is standing on his shoulders. I don’t hear anybody talking about movies the way they talk about TV right now. … I need to move to a medium in which the way I like to do things is viewed as a positive and not a negative.” (AP)
If you believe him, Steven Soderbergh has made his last movie. Today, the director will bring his Liberace ﬁlm, “Behind the Candelabra” (which airs Sunday on HBO), to the Cannes Film Festival, where it will compete for the same Palme d’Or he won 24 years ago for his ﬁrst ﬁlm, “Sex, Lies and Videotape.” After that, the 50-year-old’s career in ﬁlm — 26 protean features including “Out of Sight,” “Trafﬁc” and the “Ocean’s” franchise — will effectively conclude. For now, at least. “In theory,” he says, “I’m ﬁnished.” When you look back on your ﬁlmography, what do you think of it?
It feels like one big movie to me, like chapters of a novel. There’s continuity. There’s evolution. I shot “Sex, Lies” in 35 days and “Candelabra” in 30 days. I’m more economical. I’d probably make them all a few minutes shorter. Shorter is always better.
“I could end up making something that is designed more to be seen in a museum than a movie theater.” The break from movies you’ve long talked about is now effectively underway. How’s it going?
It’s been a little quieter for me. [But] it’s hard for me to do nothing.
You recently gave a speech on how Hollywood could function better.
It was … an opportunity to organize in one place a lot of things I’ve either said in interviews or bars. It
was just a way for me to structure it all, get it out and close the door on it. What’s surprising about you stepping away from ﬁlmmaking is that you seem to relish the process.
I have a plan. I have an idea of how it can go, and I’m willing to throw it all out at a moment’s notice to go somewhere else with it. I expect to discover things. I
expect accidents. I expect something that somebody suggests or says will move me in another direction. I’m creating an environment in order to conjure that kind of things. I want my experience of making something to be f luid and to be surprising. I want it to come alive in front of me. JAKE COYLE (AP)
The ‘Trouble’ With Subtle The National’s new, more muted sound doesn’t entirely work Album Review The first word that comes to mind after listening to The National’s new album is “restrained.” Six or seven listens later and the small nuances on “Trouble Will Find Me” work their way out of the mix, but that ﬁrst impression of the group’s sixth album
still lingers. The National was anything but restrained as it battled its way to the forefront of the indie rock movement with its past two albums. The quintet distinguished itself from a legion of mope rockers by unleashing two formidable beasts: frontman Matt Berninger and drummer Bryan Devendorf. Berninger’s majestic baritone and vivid lyrics and Devendorf’s aggressive, time-shifting attack differentiated The National, providing a natural groove so rare

Hootie and the Blowfish’s Darius Rucker continues to go country on “True Believers.”
A Nashville State of Mind Darius Rucker will make ‘True Believers’ out of country fans on his fourth solo record Album Review On his two previous Nashville, Tenn.-recorded solo albums, Darius Rucker proved he could fit in with contemporary country music. On “True Believers,” his fourth solo album overall, Rucker finds a voice and sound of his own, showing that he can leave a distinctive mark on the genre. With the funk-country rhythms of “Radio,” “Shine” and “Lost In You,” Rucker combines the beachmusic sound of his native South Carolina with the breezy, catchy side of current Nashville hits. Then there’s the roots-rocking “Heartbreak Road” and the raw, emotional “Miss You.” On both originals, Rucker makes great use of the expressive capabilities of his

baritone voice — which had been so important to the success of his rock band, Hootie and the Blowﬁsh. Rucker wrote 10 of the 12 songs on “True Believers” and adds momentum to the collection with two well-chosen songs by others. He faithfully covers Old Crow Medicine Show’s Americana hit “Wagon Wheel” and nicely handles a duet with Sheryl Crow on “Love Without You,” written by Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally. “True Believers” suggests that the 47-year-old has found a home on the country charts where he can settle down for a long spell.

Troops were sent to cafes in French towns to drink freely and talk loudly in order to spread rumors of massive deployment. “The Ghost Army” includes interviews with veterans of this remarkably creative force that brought a level of showmanship to total war.
