Poisonous Letter Sent to Obama FBI says threatening note matches ones sent to Bloomberg Washington A suspicious letter mailed to the White House was similar to two threatening, poison-laced letters on the gun-law debate sent to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation’s most potent gun-control advocates, officials said Thursday. The Secret Service said the letter was addressed to President Barack Obama and was intercepted at a White House mail screening facility. Two similar letters postmarked

Similar Case The letters sent to President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg were the latest in a string of toxin-laced missives, but authorities would not say whether the letters to Bloomberg and Obama were believed to be linked to any other recent case. In Washington state, a 37-year-old was charged last week with threatening to kill a federal judge in a letter that contained ricin. About a month earlier, letters containing the substance were addressed to Obama, a U.S. senator and a Mississippi judge. One of the letters postmarked in Memphis, Tenn., was traced back to Tupelo, Miss., and a Mississippi man was arrested. (AP)

from the same machine or computer and may be identical. The FBI said in a statement that field tests on the letters were consistent with the presence of a biological agent, although a thorough analysis was in the works. Bloomberg has emerged as one of the country’s most important gun-control advocates, able to press his case using both his public position and his private money. The letter mailed to New York referenced the gun-control debate. Kelly said the unsigned letter says, essentially: “Anyone who comes for my guns will be shot in the face.” C O L L E E N L O N G A N D D A R L E N E SUPERVILLE (AP)

Astronauts traveling to and from Mars would be bombarded with as much radiation as they’d get from a full-body CT scan about once a week for a year, researchers reported Thursday. That dose would, in some cases, exceed NASA’s standards and is enough to raise an astronaut’s cancer risk by 3 percent. The estimate doesn’t include time spent on Mars, which would add to an astronaut’s exposure. The analysis appears in Friday’s issue of the journal Science. There have been previous efforts to gauge the radiation risk for future Mars travelers, but the best estimate is coming from NASA’s Curiosity mission. Tucked inside the rover when it launched in 2011 was a radiation sensor that took readings during the 8½-month trip to Mars. NASA aims to send a crew to orbit the red planet by the mid2030s.

Washington As Christy Everson was nearing age 40, she made a decision: She wanted to have a child, even though she was single and it meant doing it all alone. Her daughter, conceived via a sperm donor, is now 2½ years old, and Everson hopes to have a second child. “Was it worthwhile? Well, I’m thinking of doing it again,” she says. Everson and women like her are part of a shift in American society. An Associated Press-WE tv poll of people under 50 found that more than 2 in 5 unmarried women without children — or 42 percent — would consider having a child on their own without a partner, including more than a third, or 37 percent, who would consider adopting solo. The poll also found that few Americans think the growing variety of family arrangements is bad for society. However, many have some qualms about single mothers — 64 percent said single women having children without a partner is a bad thing for society. Sixty-eight

percent of men felt that way, compared to 59 percent of women. Joyce Chen, a hospital occupational therapist in San Francisco and a single mother, credits a strong community of friends for helping make her family work. “I’ve been blessed,” she says of life with her 10-year-old daughter. But Chen feels that a single mom can do just as good a job of raising a child as two parents can. Overall, the poll found decidedly mixed results on that question: Thirty percent of respondents said yes, 27 percent said no, and 43 percent said “it depends.” The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

Syria’s Assad Asserts Confidence Leader also says attacks from Israel will spur retaliation Beirut Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview broadcast Thursday that he is “confident in victory” in his country’s civil war, and he warned that Damascus would retaliate in kind to any future Israeli airstrike on his territory. Assad also told the Lebanese TV station Al-Manar that Russia has fulfilled some of its weapons contracts recently, but he was vague on whether this included advanced S-300 air-defense systems. Assad’s comments were in line

“We are confident and sure about victory, and I confirm that Syria will stay as it was, but even more than before, in supporting resistance fighters in all the Arab world.” — PRE SIDENT BA SH A R A SSA D, IN AN INTERVIEW AIRED THURSDAY, DISCUSSING HIS COUNTRY’S CIVIL WAR

with a forceful and confident message the regime has been sending in recent days, even as the international community attempts to launch a peace conference in Geneva, possibly next month. The strong tone coincided with recent military victories. Assad’s interview was broad-

cast as Syria’s main political opposition group appeared to fall into growing disarray. The international community had hoped the two sides would start talks on a political transition. However, the opposition group, Syrian National Coalition, said earlier Thursday that it would not attend a

conference, linking the decision to a regime offensive on the western Syrian town of Qusair and claiming that hundreds of wounded people were trapped there. Assad said Thursday that he has been confident from the start of the Syrian conflict more than two years ago that he would be able to defeat his opponents. Taking a tough line, he also warned that Syria would strike back hard against any future Israeli airstrike.

The death of Waliur Rehman, wanted by the U.S. for a 2009 attack in Afghanistan, also focuses attention on the U.S. drone program. President Barack Obama last week unveiled more restrictions on the use of drones against militants, but Wednesday’s strike against a longtime American target shows the administration will continue to use the strikes.

Demand Emerges for Bulletproof School Gear Colombian company exporting armored backpacks to U.S. Bogota, Colombia Miguel Caballero’s business, making bullet proof clothing for the fashion-conscious, has grown over the years as presidents, police chiefs and oil sheiks from as far away as Qatar have become loyal customers. Dubbed “the Armani of bulletproof clothing,” the Bogota-based company that bears his name sells protective leather jackets and blazers, along with more standard fare — bulletproof vests. Now Caballero is zeroing in on an untapped mar-

A Level of Safety About 300 bulletproof children’s backpacks, retailing for just under $300, have been sold in Denver, U.S. distributor Elite Sterling Security said.

ket: U.S. schoolchildren. With his new line, MC Kids, Caballero offers backpacks and jackets for children that are outfitted with plating to stop the slugs from an Israeli-made Uzi. Caballero, 46, said that in his 20 years of business, there had never been a demand in Colombia

for bulletproof children’s clothing. But the U.S. is different. “The rest of the countries in the world try to disarm, but in the United States, they say, ‘Let’s protect ourselves,’ ” he said. Caballero said he is not exploiting a tragic situation but rather offering a partial solution. He said

that in the week after the December shootings at Sandy Hook that killed 20 first-graders, he received emails from 40 people in the U.S. asking for help protecting their children. The company’s fame has come from producing garments that don’t look like armor. There are T-shirts that can stop a 9mm round, a bullet-resistant blanket, and tuxedos for those worried about an attack at a midnight ball. Leaders across the region, including the late Venezuelan populist Hugo Chavez, have worn Caballero’s outfits. “We’re not in the war business,” he said. “We’re in the business of defense, and in that sense, we propose solutions.” JUAN FORERO (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Surprise Inside! Way before I swipe my SmarTrip to exit a Metro station, I know exactly how much that ride is going to cost. I never need to even think about the price of a Circulator trip: It’s always one buck. When I take a seat in a taxicab, however, I have only a vague notion of what my final tab is going to be. Prepare to downgrade the accuracy of that notion further starting Saturday, when passengers will be hit with a quirky fare increase. I think most folks are aware of the good news that D.C. cabs are finally installing credit-card readers. What I’m guessing most people have ignored — or couldn’t hear over the thunderous applause — is that the installation of the

Modern Taximeter System comes at a price. That price is an extra 25 cents added to the current $3 flag drop rate and a $1 surcharge for anyone not traveling solo. “ T h a t ’s no t f a i r,” y ou’r e probably thinking. (Unless I’m just projecting.) But what would be really cruel would be making us pay more for riding in cabs that haven’t been upgraded yet. And on that point,

You won’t know if you picked correctly until you take a seat and the cab driver starts up the meter. prefer to pay cash, it’s a reason to try to hail a cab that’s still on the old-school system. You won’t know if you picked correctly until you take a seat and the driver starts the meter, says D.C. Taxicab Commission spokesman Neville Waters: “If it still says $3, [the taxi] hasn’t gone in yet for conversion.” Waters expects that, at least at first, few customers will find themselves in cabs with the new system in place. There are 7,000 vehicles that need the upgrade and only about a dozen taximeter installation companies on the case, which should slow things down a bit. And as eager as I am to live in a city whose taxis all take credit cards, I’ll probably be keeping my fingers crossed that I end up in a cash cab.

Uber Stays Put and Gains Competition Relax, Uber-aholics! The company’s taxi-dispatch service is not being suspended come Saturday. After threatening to shut down June 1 in response to the new D.C. Taxicab Commission regulations, Uber announced that a last-minute modification has allowed it to put those plans in reverse. For now. That means it’s sticking around to face some more taxi-app competition. Hailo (Hailocab.com/dc), which dominates London’s black-cab scene, is inviting people to sign up as “founding passengers” in D.C. to get a $10 credit for when the service gets going. And some D.C. taxis are already using San Francisco’s Flywheel (Flywheel.com), which plans an official launch soon. V.H.

Armed March on D.C. Canceled Organizer shifts his tactics, urging events in 50 states instead Washington The activist who threatened to lead an armed march on Washington on July Fourth has canceled the event but is urging people to converge on the 50 state capitals to protest gun regulations, according to a recent appearance on an Internet talk show. “Please don’t come to Washington, D.C.,” Adam Kokesh, an Iraq

War veteran, urged on the Pete Santilli Show. “Appeal on a state level. We shouldn’t be begging the government to change. We should be hoping they respect our rights.” In the interview, Kokesh said a friend is coordinating the state protests and it was unclear whether people are being urged to come armed. Kokesh’s plans to draw at least 1,000 people with guns to march from Virginia into Washington across the Arlington Memorial Bridge attracted the attention of law-enforcement officials who worried about a confrontation on

The transfer delayed Nathaniel McRae’s arrival at a hospital by seven minutes. Officials insist the wait did not play a role in his death. WUSA-TV reported that the ambulance shutdown was caused by a newer-model diesel engine with emission-control features required by the EPA that can make the motor shut down for “regeneration” — a process in which the exhaust system burns off trapped soot. There have been calls to exempt emergency vehicles from the standards.

Among the contenders Thursday were, from left, Katharine Wang of Shanghai; Eva Kitlen of Boulder, Colo.; and Joshua Sturgill of Sedalia, Mo. The event at National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md., ended Thursday after Express’ deadline.

Five for the Friendly

Washington will host the U.S. men’s national team in its final tuneup before the next set of World Cup qualifiers. Looking to bounce back from Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Belgium, the Americans face Germany on Sunday at RFK Stadium. The U.S. salvaged four points out of its past two qualifiers and would be on solid footing to qualify for Brazil 2014 with favorable results against Jamaica, Panama and Honduras in June. Prior to that, though, is Sunday’s clash with the powerful Germans. Here are five storylines heading into the match. AVI CREDITOR (FOR EXPRESS)

1

Celebrating 100

Versatile U.S. veteran DaMarcus Beasley earned his 100th cap in Wednesday’s loss to Belgium. The Americans will be celebrating another kind of 100 on Sunday. The game against Germany is being billed as U.S. Soccer’s Centennial Celebration Match, with the federation commemorating its 100 years of existence. The U.S. is 2-6-0 all-time against Germany, with both wins coming in 1999. D.C. United coach Ben Olsen scored in one of those wins, which came in the FIFA Confederations Cup.

2

Mixed Emotions

For U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann, the matchup will have added significance. A former member of the German national team, Klinsmann amassed 108 caps and 47 goals, winning the 1990 World Cup. He also coached the Germans from 2004 to 2006. He’ll be facing his former national side — and coaching counterpart and former assistant Joachim Low — as a manager for the first time in his coaching career.

3

German Stars Missing

Because of their late-season club commitments, which included squaring off in a memorable UEFA Champions League final, Bundesliga powerhouses Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have held on to the majority of their players. Germany’s secondtier team is far from a depleted squad, though, as evidenced by Wednesday’s 4-2 win over Ecuador in Florida. Veteran forwards Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski and rising star Julian Draxler are among the main attractions.

4

Public Training

As has become tradition under Klinsmann, the Americans will host an open training session for the general public, Saturday at 3 p.m. at RFK. Admission and parking in Lot 5 are both free, and fans will get the chance to observe practice while being addressed by Klinsmann and some players.

5

United Heads to Chicago

With the national team occupying RFK, D.C. United goes on the road to play the Chicago Fire on Sunday, looking to avoid extending its MLS winless streak to a would-be franchise-worst 11 games. The club won’t have the services of goalkeeper Bill Hamid, who will remain home to participate with the national team and complement Klinsmann’s other goalkeeping options, Tim Howard and Brad Guzan.

Nats’ Bats Coming Around

Series Preview

Nats at Braves

Offense heats up heading into a series against the Braves

FRIDAY 7:30 P.M., MASN

Nationals Stephen Strasburg 3-5, 2.49 ERA

Since the Washington Nationals returned from a 10-game West Coast road trip, the bats have picked up. Prior to Thursday’s game, the Nationals averaged 5.2 runs per contest since May 24, when they opened a series against Philadelphia at home. Washington had scored six runs or more in three of four games — a total it failed to reach once in its previous seven contests.

SATURDAY 7:15 P.M., FOX

Who’s Hot?

The ERA of the Braves’ pitching staff against the Nationals this season. Atlanta is 5-2 vs. Washington.

Ryan Zimmerman, Nationals: After hitting three home runs in his first 38 games of the season, the third baseman hit three vs. the Orioles on Wednesday.

PATRICK SMITH/GETTY IMAGES

The middle of the lineup has powered the Nationals’ recent surge. First basema n Ada m LaRoche batted .429 with three home runs in the six games prior to Thursday’s game, while third baseman Ryan Zimmerman belted three homers against Baltimore on Wednesday. Despite the improved offense, the Nationals managed just a 3-3 record in this span. When Washington was in a hitting slump in late April, manager Davey Johnson offered his players some advice. Perhaps they’re listening now. “I’ve tried to tell them messages from Ted Williams,” Johnson said. “He never swung 100 percent; he swung 80 percent so his timing would be 100 percent.” The recent stretch has been a

pleasant surprise for an offense that has struggled most of the season. Entering Thursday, the Nationals were batting .233 as a team, which ranked 28th in the majors. They ranked 26th in runs (190) and 24th in slugging percentage (.380). Pitching is certainly the team’s strength, though there was plenty of optimism about Wash-

ington’s ability at the plate heading into the 2013 season. The Nationals’ bats will be needed in Atlanta this weekend when the team takes on the Braves, who entered Thursday up 4½ games on Washington in the NL East. This season the Nationals are 2-5 against the Braves, scoring just 13 runs in those seven games. For the three-game series,

Atlanta is expected to start Julio Teheran, Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm, who are a combined 3-1 against Washington this year. The Nationals hope their recent uptick in hitting will continue in Atlanta. “Hitting is contagious,” shortstop Ian Desmond said. “Once one guy gets going, everybody feeds on it.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

Time to Turn It On: To put Washington’s record in perspective, consider this: The Nationals’ worst 53-game stretch in 2012 was a 27-26 mark from April 26 to June 25. They’ve already accomplished that this season with a 27-26 mark through the first 53 games. Their record during that near-.500 stretch last season didn’t seem so bad because they started the year 14-4. The Nats could use a hot streak soon to counter the slow start. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Freddie Freeman, Braves: Entering Thursday, the 23-year-old had two or more hits in six of the past eight games.

Who’s Not? Danny Espinosa, Nationals: The second baseman has almost double the amount of strikeouts (43) as hits (24) this season and is batting .166. Tim Hudson, Braves: The right-hander has allowed five earned runs or more in three of his past four starts.

Ohio State president Gordon Gee took shots at Notre Dame and Catholics.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III threw to fellow rehabbing Redskins at OTAs on Thursday. Earlier this week, he ran two miles for the first time since injuring his knee.

RGIII: ‘It’s Been a Journey’ Redskins QB is back throwing at OTAs as he continues rehab Redskins Robert Griffin III had switched from a black shirt to a white one, but his role in Washington’s organized team activities Thursday at Redskins Park remained the same from a week ago. Last year’s offensive rookie of the year again threw in a quadrant of the practice field to fellow rehabbing Redskins Pierre Garcon, Fred Davis, Jordan Reed and Roy Helu as Griffin continued his recovery from Jan. 9 surgery on his right knee. “It’s been a journey,” said Griffin, who ran two miles earlier this

week for the first time since he was injured in the Jan. 6 playoff loss to Seattle. “Everyone gets to see the flowers and roses side of it out here throwing and running with a little bounce in your step. I’ve had to be patiently aggressive this whole time, let my body heal and be aggressive where I can. “I’m still trying to make sure I stay focused, not just on the rehab part, but also getting the mental reps, knowing [the offense] like the back of my hand. [I’m] mastering

the offense so that I can continue to beat teams with my mind.” Griffin beat defenses with his mind, arm and legs last season in leading the Redskins to a 10-6 mark and their first NFC East title since 1999. He expects at least as much this season. “There’s a totally different feeling within the team,” Griffin said. “I feel like outside the team, people still doubt us. That’s the way you want it to be. Last offseason a lot of guys were trying to prove to the coaches that they should be here. They’re doing the same thing this offseason, but I think there’s a little more confidence going about that. “We know with the guys we have coming back and with the guys that we’ve added, we can be really good this year.” DAVID ELFIN (AP)

Meanwhile... Linebacker Brian Orakpo says he feels fresh and is “100 percent.” He says the Redskins are not holding him back, and that “when you miss a year, you get to rejuvenate your body, let everything else that was nagging you heal up [too]. It’s kind of a gift and curse.” Orakpo’s fourth year was cut short in Week 2 by a season-ending injury to his left pectoral muscle, the third injury to that area of his body in nine months. (AP)

Fine given to Miami’s LeBron James and Indiana’s David West and Lance Stephenson by the NBA on Thursday for violating its anti-flopping policy. James and West were penalized for the same play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. James spun and fell and West tumbled toward the baseline as the NBA’s MVP defended the Indiana forward. Stephenson was fined for exaggerating the contact after a slight elbow from Ray Allen. (AP)

OSU Leader Bad-Mouths Notre Dame College Sports T he president of Ohio State University said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten because the university’s priests are not good partners, joking that “those damn Catholics” can’t be trusted, according to a recording of a meeting he attended late last year. Gordon Gee also took shots at schools in the SEC and the University of Louisville, according to the recording of the December meeting of the school’s Athletic Council that the Associated Press obtained under a public records request. The university called the statements inappropriate and said Gee is undergoing a “remediation plan” because of the remarks. Gee apologized in a statement released to the AP. “The comments I made were just plain wrong, and in no way do they reflect what the university stands for,” he said. “They were a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate. There is no excuse for this and I am deeply sorry.” The Big Ten had for years courted Notre Dame. In September, the school announced that it would join the ACC in all sports except football but agreed to play five football games each year vs. ACC teams. ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS (AP)

SUMMER READING 2013

The Long Story, Short Short stories are like Brussels sprouts, says Mark LaFramboise, head buyer for Politics and Prose: Once you’ve disliked one, you’re loath to try another. Yet “at the moment, we’re rich with a lot of really talented short-story writers, so it’s a good reason to explore the realm.” This summer brings outstanding collections from literary newcomers (including Rebecca Lee, whose title tale in “Bobcat” you can sample below) and experienced essayists (does David Sedaris ring a bell?). Here are our favorite new anthologies. HOLLE Y SIMMONS (E X PRES S) THOMAS PITILLI/FOR EXPRESS

“Bobcat” by Rebecca Lee PUBLISHES JUNE 11 | Jealousy. Infidelity. A

poorly cooked terrine. These are just a few of the subjects you’ll find in the opening tale of Rebecca Lee’s debut collection, “Bobcat” ($15, Algonquin Books). All of Lee’s stories are clear, powerful and accessible, making the anthology an appropriate jumping-off point for readers hesitant to try short-form literature. Often dealing with clueless sophisticates with out-of-whack priorities, Lee’s writings tackle modern themes: a college student whose bout with plagiarism isn’t as worrisome as her linguistics professor’s obscure past; a woman who seeks a translator to determine if the Romanian letters her fiance is receiving are from a sister or a secret lover. Proceed cautiously: Unexpected twists ahead. H.S.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT It was the terrine that got to me. I felt queasy enough that I had to sit in the living room and narrate to my husband what was the brutal list of tasks that would result in a terrine: devein, declaw, decimate the sea and other animals, eventually emulsifying them into a paste which could then be riven with whole vegetables. It was like describing to somebody how to paint a Monet, how to turn the beauty of the earth into a blurry, intoxicating swirl, like something seen through the eyes of the dying.

Since we were such disorganized hosts, we were doing a recipe from Food and Wine called the quickstart terrine. A terrine rightfully should be made over the course of two or three days — heated, cooled, flagellated, changed over time in the flames of the ever-turning world, but our guests were due to arrive within the hour. Of the evening’s guests, I was most worried about the DonnerNilsons, whom my husband called the Donner-Blitzens. I had invited them about a month ago, before it had begun to dawn on me that one-half of the couple — Ray Nilson — was having an affair with a

paralegal at work, a paralegal so beautiful it was hard to form any other opinions of her. I suppose Ray felt in her presence something that seemed to him so original that he had to pay attention even if he had a wife and a small baby at home. My friend Lizbet was also coming, and I had filled her in on the situation, making her promise that she would reveal nothing at the dinner, even with her eyes. “My eyes?” she had said, innocently. Lizbet was so irrepressible that I could imagine her raising her eyebrows very slowly for Ray’s wife, darting them suddenly over

Lofty Rental Ambition Renting a loft apartment comes with its own set of challenges and rewards Lifestyle We’ve all seen those trendy loft apartments in the movies. The actors open a freight elevator door and enter a spacious bohemian paradise that’s effortlessly cool. Of course, it isn’t always so effortless. Making good use of the open space in a loft can be hard, but there are ways to get it just right. The term “loft apartment” gets tossed around a lot. Some apartment complexes use it to make any open-plan apartment seem trendier. A true loft apartment is characterized by being in a re-purposed building with massive windows and an open f loor plan. Because they’re in repurposed buildings, they often have an industrial design, with exposed brick walls and ventilation ducts along high ceilings.

Divide and Conquer

TEDDYWOLFF/FOR EXPRESS

One of the biggest challenges with decorating a loft is making the big, open space feel livable. “You have to use your furniture to delineate the ‘rooms,’ ” says Carrie Jenkins, 32, the property manager of the Foundry Lofts in the Yards development (301 Tingey St. SE; 866-205-5860, Foundryloftsdc .com) and a loft apartment renter. “I think area rugs are a great way to mark open spaces into specific areas.” Furniture and rugs aren’t the only ways to parcel out specific areas of a room, says

Loft Living

exposed brick walls and the large windows that allow light to flood in. Both can be a blessing and a curse. For example, brick walls in older buildings may not hold decorations as well as their modern counterparts, Jenkins says. “They used to use a lot more sand and mortar in brick,” she says. “It means hanging things on the walls can be really difficult. We don’t encourage it.”

Continued from page R1

Modern Industry Most lofts keep their building’s former rugged look alive, but that means getting the right style can be tricky. Trying to match your furniture to the industrial look can feel sterile, but move too far in a contrasting direction and your whole apartment will clash. Cheli chose to decorate and furnish his apartment in a very modern st yle, the crisp lines a nd a ngles of t he f u r n it u re

Mark Mlakar with M2 Real Estate (Msqrealty.com), who helps sell and rent D.C.-area lofts. “You can focus on a specific color in an area, and then another in another area,” Mlakar says. “I use big pieces of art to establish a color.” Of course, you don’t have to be quite so subtle about it. Ron Cheli, a 35-year-old nursing home administrator who rents at the Foundry Lofts, had a more direct strategy for room division. “I d id n’t w a nt t he of f ic e clashing with the room’s style so I set up a divider,” Cheli says. “That looks cool and fits with the overall style.” It isn’t just horizontal space that should be divided up cleanly. Bring the cavernous ceiling to a human scale by hanging pictures at the right height, getting some eye-catching furniture and placing lamps at the level at which you live, says interior designer Andy Staszak of Andy Staszak Design (Andystaszakinteriordesign.com).

Lofts? What Lofts? So you’ve been looking for a loft apartment in the D.C. area and not finding much? You’re not alone. Traditional loft spaces are few and far between in the District. That’s because D.C. was never a major industrial town, says Mark Washburn, a loft expert at DC Condo Boutique. The few industrial buildings in the city (such as those once in Foggy Bottom) were torn down long before loft spaces were in style. Plus, lofts take up a lot of space, so converting an old building into rental lofts instead of smaller units doesn’t always make the most sense for a developer. So where can you find lofts in the District? Inside old car dealerships in the Church Street and 14th Street areas and, more recently, inside old school buildings around town that aren’t being used anymore. If you’re desperate for a true loft apartment, keep your eyes open for loft owners who might privately rent theirs out. M.R. complementing the pared down look of the building. “It’s an industrial/modern look that works really well in that kind

of space,” he says. The key to decorating lofts may be to let the space dictate what you add to it.

“For y ou r de si g n t o b e successful you have to listen to the architecture,” Staszak says. “Add in a few antique accents, but put in clean-lined furnishings that are modern.” Those accents — whether it’s a gilded mirror or antique chair — can blunt the harder edges of the industrial look. “There are a lot more gritty elements like exposed ceilings, pipes and support beams [in lofts],” Mlakar says. “You want to try to soften them with the furniture and colors.”

Let There Be Light The two most notable features of a loft apartment are often the

The Mid-Range Rental Forecast New jobs and new units could affect mid-level rental rates Trends The start of 2013 brought a rise in vacancy for the mid-tier apartments known as Class B rentals, and that could signal changes for rents in the future. For the time being, however, Class B rents overall are fairly stable. Vacancy for this type of unit

ready to rent | R3

in the metro area increased to 4.4 percent at the end of the first quarter of 2013, compared with 2.2 percent at the end of the first quarter of 2012. Vacancy increased in the suburbs but decreased slightly in the District. Despite the increase in vacancies, the average rent across the region still managed to increase 0.1 percent from one year ago to $1,540. As with vacancies, there were differences in rent prices across the metropolitan area. Suburban Mary-

land rents are up 0.2 percent, and rents in the District climbed even more, up 1.5 percent. Northern Virginia rents, meanwhile, dropped by 0.2 percent over the year. Vacancy is likely to remain low for the remainder of the year. Despite sequestration, the D.C. area continues to add jobs. Conditions should improve after the first half of the year as the outcome of the federal budget becomes clearer. At the same time, low-wage jobs are expected to grow at a rapid pace, particularly in the retail and

construction sectors, increasing demand for Class B apartments. But other factors might push rents lower. As new high-end (Class A) units come on the market this year, pressure on Class B rents could mount, especially if the higher-end buildings offer discounts to lease their new projects quickly.

Could you live in a truly teeny apartment? Learn how some locals cope with miniscule studios in next week’s issue of Ready to Rent.

Big windows look gorgeous, but sun streaming in nonstop can ruin your sleep, cause constant squinting and make TV watching difficult. Cheli says he loves the light that comes blasting through his large windows. He hasn’t put up any blinds, but for those who need a little shade, window treatments are a must. “If you want a black-out, you need fitted curtains, but those can be expensive to order,” Staszak says. Instead, he suggests that you buy some light fabric and a few dowel rods and make your own curtains that will filter the light and give the apartment a warm look. Warm is the look many loft renters are going for, transforming a cold industrial space into a home. Now t hat C hel i ha s h is apartment perfectly planned, he can’t find a flaw. “To me, there are no drawbacks to loft apartments,” he says. MAT T R A Z AK (FOR E XPRESS)

Gables City Vista

WHATEVERYOUR LIFESTYLE, GABLES CITY VISTA HAS AN APARTMENT HOME TO SUITYOUR NEEDS. www.Gables.com/CityVista

Amenities include onsite Safeway, Starbucks, Vida, and restaurants, two-story grand lobby, 24-hour concierge, cyber lounge, business and conference centers, direct access parking, community room, fitness center, and a one acre sky park. When Gables Residential had the opportunity to add Gables City Vista to its luxury apartment portfolio in downtown Washington, D.C., it immediately jumped at the opportunity to purchase and operate the community adding more choice and diversity to Gables’ already impressive collection of landmark luxury addresses throughout the district. The addition brought a more vibrant and urban choice to Gables Residential brand-loyal residents. Since Gables Residential acquired the community in 2010, the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood has continued to evolve into one of the most desirable and convenient places in the city to call home. Gables City Vista is unique in the fact that the scale of the community, being

anchored by Vida Fitness, Busboy and Poets, and Safeway, allows residents to truly, live, work, and play all without the hassle of driving or metroing. With a Walkscore of 95 and a Transitscore of 99, Gables City Vista delivers the best of what city living is all about. The apartments at Gables City Vista were designed by an award winning architect with amazing use of light and space planning that make the luxury apartment homes much more livable than those that are being built around the city today. Granite countertops, spa baths, efficient Energy Star rated appliances, in home clothes care centers, and open

concept living and dinning rooms, the floor plans at the community lend themselves to easy entertaining and high style. Each home was also engineered with energy efficiency in mind with high efficiency individually controlled heating and air condition systems, thermo and noise insulated windows and doors, and even a living green roof that transforms the center of the community into the city’s first sky park, Vista Green. “Coming from Fairfax, I was tired of an hour plus commute each way to my office on K St, NW, so when it was time for me to CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE >

“Gables Residential believed in the vision of Mount Vernon Triangle when it acquired Gables City Vista in 2010, and that vision is now realized. A neighborhood once full of vacant lots has been transformed into a vibrant residential community that is home to over 5,000 residents in a very short time, and is still growing. Every week we see new restaurants, shops, and night life opening and we are thrilled to be a part of the community.” --Greg Gasior, Vice President. Features studio, junior one bedroom, one bedroom, two bedroom, and two bedroom with den loft and three bedroom penthouses. < CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE

find a new home, I wanted a community where I could take the elevator downstairs to do my food shopping or meet a friend for dinner. Gables City Vista was a perfect fit. Me and my dog Charlie get to spend time exploring the neighborhood and meeting new people with all the extra time that is added to my life each day avoiding the dreaded Slug lines for the commute in and out of the city. My apartment faces Vista Green, Gables’ sky park, and the view and light that pours in my floor to ceiling windows makes entertaining a pleasure. If you are looking for a new apartment, it is so worth it to meet the great people in the leasing office that make Gables City Vista really feel like home.” --Pat B “Gables City Vista was the pioneer of the neighborhood when it opened in 2008, and Gables Residential’s commitment to Taking Care of the Way People Live really shows, because the community still looks and feels brand new. Coming to work each day is easy when you have such an incredible team and beautiful community to represent. Working here has really made me understand the appeal of being able to live, work, and play all without worrying about parking or the metro. It’s a lifestyle that is tough to beat.” --Cherish Medawar, Community Manager

“Gables City Vista’s urban design has won awards, but the award we are most proud of is the PACE Judge’s Choice award. This year the community won over the judges through our attention to detail in every aspect of managing the community, most importantly, that we make our residents the priority and consistently reinvest in the building and the community. Gables Residential really allows us to live our pledge of customer service.” --J’aime Huret, Regional Manager Saturday, June 1st is the ribbon cutting of the renovated street scapes that surround Gables City Vista at 5th and K St, NW. The mayor and several city council members will be present along with local

businesses to celebrate the achievements of the neighborhood. In conjunction with the event, Gables City Vista is hosting an Open House for everyone to tour the community from 10 AM to 5 PM. Call today to schedule your personalized tour of the community, and discover what all the buzz is truly about! Gables City Vista is strategically located in Mount Vernon Triangle, conveniently adjacent to China Town, Gallery Place, and the Convention Center. Gables City Vista truly combines the best of both walk-ability and easy access to all lines of the Metro and major commuter thoroughfares such as Rt 50, 295, and 395.

books lookout to Ray. Watch out! Lizbet was the person who had introduced me to my husband, John. She and I had been children together, and then during the years I was getting a law degree at NYU, she and John had been writing students together in the state of Iowa. This fall, ten years after they’d graduated, both had novels being published. Lizbet’s was about the search for the lost Gnostic Gospel texts, and the book was already, prepublication, being marketed as the thinking woman’s The Da Vinci Code. My husband’s book was a novel about a war correspondent getting traumatized in some made-up Middle Eastern country that sounded a lot like Iran but was named Burmar in the book. Truthfully, I was not pleased with his book. I had just finished reading it for the first time, in galleys, and within the first forty pages, the protagonist had slept with three women, none of whom even remotely resembled me — one was an aging countess, another a midwestern farm-girl TV journalist, and then the narrator’s true love was a sexy Burmarian/Iranian waif named Zita. “Who is Zita?” I had asked him early this afternoon. I was hovering over a roast, trying to figure out how to tie it for the oven. “She’s nobody,” he said. He was carrying into our apartment bags of groceries and he leaned over to kiss my cheek. “Who is she, though?” “She’s a fictional character.” “Do you think our unborn child will one day want to read about your sexual fantasies of other women in war zones?” “Wait,” he said. His head was cocked to the side, as it was when he felt confused or hurt and wanted to explain something. He looked innocent, yet interested. “First,” he said, “there is no Zita. Secondly, the protagonist in the book is not me.” “Zita is Frances,” I said. It was absurd, I knew. Frances was Frances Sofitel, his book editor, who was also due to show up at our house in a few hours for this dinner party, a woman as unlike a waif as humanly possible. She was tall and very

MORE GOOD READS “Vampires in the Lemon Grove” by Karen Russell PUBLISHED FEB. 12 | Like her Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel “Swamplandia!,” about a family coping with the death of their alligator-wrestling mother, Karen Russell’s “Vampires in the Lemon Grove” mixes credible tales with elements of make-believe ($25, Alfred A. Knopf). Think phantasmal stories of young women in a silk factory whose bellies begin producing silk and a massage therapist who assuages a veteran’s pain by manipulating his tattoos. It’s almost hard to fathom that such a young talent — Russell is just 31 — could produce such powerful works of fiction in succession until you realize: Stranger things have happened.

“The Fun Parts” by Sam Lipsyte PUBLISHED MARCH 5 | Don’t let the title of Sam Lipsyte’s latest fool you: “The Fun Parts” is anything but lighthearted ($24, Farrar Straus Giroux). Though it’s laugh-so-hard-you-snort funny, the collection from The New York Times-bestselling author of “The Ask” recounts such caustic stories as a man with no remorse for cheating on his wife with a lesbian, and an overweight teenage boy who mercilessly bullies the only classmate larger than him. You almost feel bad for finding pleasure in such dysfunction, until you realize that you would never act in such an abhorrent manner and drift off into a lulling state of superiority.

“Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls” by David Sedaris PUBLISHED APRIL 23 | Omitting essayist David Sedaris from a short-story round-up is a crime punishable by law in 12 states. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more humiliating for the dysfunctional-family man, he’s back with 26 new anecdotes ($27, Little, Brown and Company). He covers his childhood foibles (capturing an endangered sea turtle only to malnourish it to death) and his far-flung escapades (traveling through the Australian countryside, trying not to be offensive) in his latest collection. As is signature Sedaris, every hysterical tale has a twinge of twinge of sadness to it, making each essay as thought-provoking as it is snarky.

“A Guide to Being Born” by Ramona Ausubel PUBLISHED MAY 2 | Here’s a fun game to play: Pick a sentence at random from “A Guide to Being Born” — Ramona Ausubel’s debut short-story collection — and try not to be moved by it ($27, Riverhead Books). Whether she’s writing about grannies who mysteriously wake up aboard a cargo ship or parents who plant their disabled daughter’s extracted mammary glands, Ausubel is deliberate with her words and uses them sparingly. Her austerity is matched only by her psychedelic plot lines. Reading a story in one sitting is like watching Pablo Picasso paint a portrait from start to finish: Just when you think the picture is getting clearer, it only becomes more complex.

“The Peripatetic Coffin” by Ethan Rutherford PUBLISHED MAY 7 | Admittedly, we weren’t the biggest fans of Ethan Rutherford’s title story —the plotline is as murky as the waters his submarine-bound characters attempt to navigate. But the remaining stories are redemptive in their painstaking attention to the human condition ($14, Ecco). One in particular stands out: “A Mugging,” which follows a husband and wife who cope in their own ways after being physically assaulted and robbed, she through attempts at intimacy and he through a glass of whiskey. Others, including one about a lovable counselor at a dud of a summer camp, aren’t quite so somber, though just as affecting.

“Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge” by Peter Orner PUBLISHES AUG. 6 | Not a single one of Peter Orner’s stories is longer than nine pages (and one, about an aging poet, is a mere 11 lines long). What results is a collection so dense and compressed that, when consumed in its entirety, dazzles like a diamond ($25, Little, Brown and Company). The author of 2001’s highly praised “Esther Stories,” Orner is no stranger to the form, and in “Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge,” he once again pens fleeting pictures of sadness (friends of a little boy whose sister has just died struggle with their immaturity and the gravity of the situation) and survival (a father and his daughter outrun a hurricane). H.S.

angular, and spoke with an authoritative baritone, and seemed always properly amused by all the underlings around her. As well, she actually managed to make quite a bit of money as an editor, partly by digging in the muck a little, a celebrity bio here, a porn star’s memoir there, just a little bit on the side to allow her to publish what she considered her heart and soul, books like my husband’s literary thriller and paean to women who weren’t his wife. She and my husband had what I thought was an overly intimate connection. I didn’t really like to see them together. They actually

“ ‘Do you think our unborn child will one day want to read about your sexual fantasies of other women in war zones?’ ” talked about language itself a lot. Just words and puns and little synonyms and such. This was completely dull to me, which in addition to my jealousy was a terrible combination. For instance, we would all be out to dinner, and one of them would dig out a little piece of paper so they could play an acrostic, or dream a little about sentences that were the same backwards as forwards. For my husband, words were fascinating — their origins and mutations, their ability to combine intricately. When somebody would say something in an economical way, and use grammar originally to some satisfying end, he would usually repeat it to me at the end of the day. It stayed in his mind, like a song or a painting he loved. I did feel he would be a very good father, partially for this reason, as I could already picture him crouched over the baby, listening, rapt, waiting for the words to come in. “Zita is not Frances, nor is she any woman,” he said. “It’s fiction.” Finish the story on June 11 when “Bobcat” hits bookshelves.

Beautifying Your Pad With Blooms

“THE FLOWER RECIPE BOOK” BY ALETHEA HARAMPOLIS AND JILL RIZZO ($25, ARTISAN)

The Gist: If you can follow a simple recipe for lasagna, you can create boutique hotel-worthy centerpieces from posies — and a few choice veggies and green things — with this high-on-photos tome. The authors (co-owners of a San Francisco floral studio) focus on seasonal buds, most easy to find at the supermarket; loose arrangements; and interesting vessels (canning jars, vintage wineglasses). Best Advice: Recipes show how to whip up bouquets from common flowers at various levels of complexity/expense/difficulty. For example, peonies go solo in tiny vases or pal around with poppies and rosemary in a wooden crate. Inspired Idea: For a wedding or baby shower, create a floral garland by stringing inexpensive mini-carnation heads on thread.

ARTISAN BOOKS

Partying By the Book Would you rather be stuck on the Red Line for hours than have pals over for a bash? Does the idea of mixing Manhattans for more than you and your cat give you Don Draper-ish angst? A recent U.K. survey found that 57 percent of respondents said the idea of throwing a dinner party stressed them out more than their daily commute. So think of this summer’s crop of soiree tip books as self-help lit for the entertaining averse. With advice on eats, drinks and how to dandify your space, they’ll have you prepped to host to-dos from backyard barbecues and cooler-thancollege beer blowouts to, yep, sophisticated suppers.

“THE ART OF THE PARTY” BY DAVID STARK ($30, THE MONACELLI PRESS)

“COCKTAILS FOR A CROWD” BY KARA NEWMAN ($19, CHRONICLE BOOKS)

The Gist: Yeah, a Rhubarb Bruleed,

THE MONACELLI PRESS

The Gist: Anyone who’s been to a wedding since Obama got in office (or who lives for Pinterest) knows that party decor has amped up lately, with goodie bags even for non-kids and sometimes wild themes (Pirate Funeral!) carried over in food, drink and crafty decor. Celebrity party animal David Stark, who has thrown bashes for such clients as Arianna Huffington and Target, shows how to turn an event from plain to schmancy, albeit on a very high-end scale. Why Read It: You can fantasize about attending a lanternand-carpet strewn wedding on a yacht in Turkey (shown in the book), then rip the idea off with World Market bath mats and a bunch of Ikea candles. Inspired Idea: Use a mini flag to wrap napkins at each place setting. (U.S., D.C. and others, from $1.90 each, at Flagsexpress.com)

Passing the Bartender Test

Cinnamon-Infused Rye Manhattan sounds delish, but do you really have time to mix 50 of them for thirsty pals? Instead, this photo-filled book suggests crowd-quenching highballs — many of them pitcher drinks or punches — that are high on taste and low on effort. Why Read It: To discover drinks that raise the bar on tasteless frozen margaritas or granny-ish punches: Hibiscus Rum Coolers and Sake Sangria (at right, recipe at Readexpress.com). Inspired Idea: For attractive ice in a punch bowl, fill a metal bread loaf pan halfway with water and submerge sliced berries and chopped mint or sliced lemons and cucumbers, then freeze.

MILLY DESIGNER Michelle Smith is known for merging Nantucket-classic prints with New York City-edgy cuts. Her limited-edition collection for Banana Republic (Bananarepublic.com and stores) brings her poppy, preppy vibe to women’s frocks (shown, $130), shore-ready bags (shown, $130) and, a first for Smith, such men’s staples as bright polos (shown, $50) and wild printed shorts ($65). A bonus: Prices are about half those of the original line.

A Bootleg Upper

Manolo says it would have helped if the Emma had mentioned for which of the various news networks she was interning, as it would have made the difference in what the Manolo would recommend. For the example, at the MSNBC, the Manolo imagines it is all sweaty people with bad haircuts in bulky sweaters and sensible shoes, while at the Fox News, it is puffy frat boys in bow ties and icy blond beauties with big hair and cultured pearls.

Of the course, the Manolo could be completely mistaken and that, in fact, the production of the cable network news is more like the making of the tofu, in that it all comes out of the same unappetizing vat of flavorless bean goop. Only at the very end do the crazy chefs add the little bit of flavoring and tons of the MSG to produce the All-American Fox News Tofurkey or the Progressive MSNBC Vegan Hot Dogs. In this case, the Manolo would imagine the same people work behind the scenes at both places — likely dressed in the sweatpants, tattered novelty T-shirts and hairnets — as they go about the business of scooping out our daily ration of heavily spiced, meatless news substitute. Here is the Cole Haan Air Talia Wedge ($129, Zappos.com) in a maple color, perfect for the summery office.

a stove and an oven (and for those who’d rather not heat up their cucinas during a stifling D.C. summer), Christina Suarez Krumsick’s book “No Bake Makery” is a cool solution for entertaining ($20, Grand Central Life & Style). Recipes include a mix-and-serve applesauce cake, cracker cookies and a strawberry Nutella icebox cake (shown). Now, if you could only find another use for all those oven mitts you’ll no longer need.

MAKING GIN at home was once the clandestine hobby of Jazz Age imbibers. (Think bathtub, bad-tasting swill and a cop pounding on your door.) But a Homemade Gin Kit ($40, Homemadegin.com) from Arlington’s Sarah and Joe Maiellano helps you LEGALLY turn vodka into an aromatic gin. Use the kit’s juniper berries and other spices to infuse vodka with zippy flavor, then age for 36 hours in the provided bottles. But don’t blame us if wannabe Gatsbys drop by looking for cocktails.

FACE TIME

Danielle Vogel Glen’s Garden Market, the Dupont Circle newcomer, puts your reusable tote bag full of farmers market produce to shame (2001 S St. NW; 202-588-5698, Glensgardenmarket.com). Founded and operated by the unstoppable Danielle Vogel, the 10,000-squarefoot grocery store stocks products sourced exclusively from East Coast producers (with the exception of some olive oils and spices). You started your career in law. How did you decide to enter the grocery-store business? The undercurrent is, I’m a fourthgeneration grocer. I was an environmental litigator and then spent two and a half years working on the Senate climate-change bill for Sen. Joe Lieberman. As we all know, it went down. I decided I wanted to create a business that was implicitly a change agent. How so? Everything I sell is local, so regardless of how you feel about climate change or the environment, every

time you buy food here, you are making progress one bite at a time. Additionally, you’re growing local jobs, you’re elevating this artisanal food movement, and you’re getting delicious stuff. An overwhelming majority of the items in your store is sourced locally. How did you go about finding products? It was everything from walking through farmers markets to reading specialty food magazines. I went to trade shows, I went to little specialty groceries all the way up to New York and just tasted

Can sourcing everything locally be restricting? I don’t carry lemons or bananas. They’re not indigenous produce. And you also sell prepared meals? People really gravitate toward an easy meal. Folks are working really hard and they don’t want to cook after they get off work at 8 p.m. People are always looking for that convenient option. So in addition to cold prepared foods, we also have an extensive sandwich selection. How do your prices compare to more traditional grocery stores? They’re on par with Whole Foods prices. The fact of the matter is, when you’re dealing with such small artisans, there’s no such thing as economy of scale. You’re not going to find Safeway prices, because not only is the quality of the product better, but these things are all made by hand. The options can be a little overwhelming. Are there any favorite products that you recommend? Out of the Big Riggs products, my favorite is the spicy beer mustard. We put it on our house-made hot dog. And my favorite Gordy’s product is the cherry pepper spread. It’s dynamite on a turkey sandwich. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

lookout film THE REELIST

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY

Once, back when I was in high school, I watched magicians Penn & Teller appear on Letterman. Their act involved throwing things at a running chipper-shredder, whereupon the things would be thoroughly chipped and shredded. At one point, Penn & Teller seemingly threw in a white, long-eared bunny, sending fur and blood everywhere. After their segment, to reassure the audience, they brought out an unhurt bunny: a brown, shorter-eared rabbit. One trick, two jaw-drops. I love magic, and what I love best about it is that everyone involved knows it’s not real (Penn & Teller did not throw a bunny into a chipper-shredder), but both audience and performer pretend that it is (the white bunny never reappeared). “Now You See Me,” opening Friday, manages to walk that line just as well as any Vegas show. While some of the movie’s magic is real, much of it is CGI or helped along by editing. And while it’s clear to anyone with a brain that Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson did not really leap off a building and turn into money, part of the fun of the film is believing that, somehow, they did. “Now You See Me” plays on what magic is: a dance between performer and audience in which the performer attempts to convince us he’s doing what he’s saying he’s doing and we pretend to believe him. If he does it right, we do believe, if only for a second (poor little white bunny). The tricks in “Now You See Me” push the boundaries of physics and, quite frankly, reality. But the fi lm — and magic itself — isn’t always about belief. Sometimes it’s just about pure fun, and that’s what “Now You See Me” does best.

Now You See Me (PG-13)

Film Jesse Eisenberg is a magician, for he has seen the future. Of magic. And it is awesome. Eisenberg plays Daniel Atlas in “Now You See Me,” out Friday, a film about four magicians from different disciplines who team up to steal from the rich and give to everybody. The magic in the movie is a blend of actual illusions — the actors underwent intense training before shooting began, and “magic coaches” were on the set every day — and CGI trickery, but even the fake moments are awfully close to being real. “We had the best magicians in the world” working on the film, Eisenberg says, “and they all said the magic we were doing in the movie were things people were working on now but hadn’t figured

All the magic we were working on was stuff that people would be doing in five years.” Atlas, the team’s sleight-of-hand guy, is a swaggering performer who straddles the line between likably arrogant and eye-rollingly annoying. “My character is the kind of guy who, at 5 years old, realized he didn’t have any friends, and then turns to magic,” the 29-year-old actor says. “I think he’s been doing

Director: Louis Leterrier Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson Quick Take: Four magicians are brought together by an unknown person who offers a reward if they carry out some largescale deception. A year later, the quartet appear to rob a Parisian bank from a Las Vegas stage. Then the story swivels over to an FBI agent (Ruffalo) and his new partner, who try to figure out how they did it. The outrageous setup more than suffices, and the film gets a lift from offbeat characters. STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

his act more than not doing his act, so that he spends more time in this persona than not in the persona. He’s developed this arrogance because he thinks he’s earned the right to kind of condescend.” Atlas is the type of character you root for even though you wouldn’t want to hang out with him at a bar. Or hang out with him and watch TV. Or hang out with him at all. “I don’t think about characters as likable or unlikable,” says Eisenberg, which makes sense considering he’s best known for his Oscarnominated role as pushy, kind of smug Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network.” “If an audience doesn’t like a character, that’s something for them to deal with; I’m just trying to play a character authentically. My character is the best magician in the world, so it’s hard for me to justify any moments of humility. “If I can play a character who has enough conviction about what they do, then it matters less if the character is nice to people.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

An Elusive Figure A new documentary tries to reveal Julian Assange’s secrets

Will Smith, left, co-stars with son Jaden Smith, right, in the sci-fi flick “After Earth.”

Father Does Not Know Best Will Smith leads son Jaden astray in the generic ‘After Earth’ Film Review Humanity’s home planet hardly merits the name-check in “After Earth,” M. Night Shyamalan’s scifi survival tale whose shipwreck action could take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after it was evacuated by humans, who ruined the environment. Humanity decamped to Nova Prime, home to monsters that had been bred to kill humans. Those beasts, Ursa, are blind but can smell the pheromones humans release when afraid. When a member of the United Ranger Corps, the elder Smith’s Cypher Raige, found himself able to suppress his fear, he was suddenly invisible to them. Cypher comes home between long campaigns to find his son Kitai unsettled, struggling to live up to his legacy. He decides to take the boy along on an interstellar voyage, but the ship is thrown off course

and must land on the nearest planet. With both legs badly broken, Cypher must coach Kitai via cameraphone as he makes a 100-kilometer trek, dodging Earth’s predators, to find the chunk of wreckage that can save their lives.

“We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks” tells its story largely by telling the story of Julian Assange, the Australian hacker-turned-activist who founded the WikiLeaks website in 2006 as a clearinghouse for information that others would have preferred to keep hidden. The film’s focus on Assange is not surprising. He’s the public face of the organization, having become the focus of praise or blame — depending on your viewpoint — for the release of such material as secret Icelandic banking documents, U.S. diplomatic cables, Afghan War logs and the notorious

The younger Smith’s performance, all furrowed brow and worried eyes, gives us no reason to believe Kitai is made of the same tough stuff as his father. Will Smith, meanwhile, is as hobbled as his character: Cypher is a man of action who can’t act; Smith is a charisma-powered performer made to hide his charm. The film’s predictable resolution, predictable to any viewer, feels oddly impersonal for a father/son bonding tale both dreamed up and enacted by a father for the son following in his footsteps.

video showing a helicopter attack on unarmed civilians by American soldiers in Baghdad. But who is Assange? Filmmaker Alex Gibney (“Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”) tries to be fair — and succeeds — but most of what we learn about Assange isn’t especially flattering, even if you approve of what he’s done in the name of openness. The portrait Gibney paints, by talking to supporters, detractors and former co-workers, is of an ideologue whose concerns about the theoretical access to unfettered data blinded him, in some cases, to the very real negative consequences of that access. The most delicious irony of the film is that Assange — that champion of free information — has by the end of the film become as tightlipped as a clam. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN

In ‘Before Midnight,’ Jesse and Celine confront middle age Film Review Richard Linklater made his name in 1991 with “Slacker,” a low-key ramble through Austin, Texas, that introduced a spontaneous form of filmmaking that concealed intelligence beneath its laid-back style. Linklater has gone on to pursue a wonderfully eclectic career, but now and then, he returns to the spirit of the talky, elliptical movie he started out making. In 1995, he made “Before Sunrise,” starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as Jesse and Celine, two people in their 20s who meet on a train and spend a romantic night having one long conversation while

strolling through Vienna; in 2004, he caught up with the couple in “Before Sunset,” when they meet again a decade later. With luck, Linklater isn’t bringing the couple’s story to an end with “Before Midnight.” But there’s no doubt that the film — which finds the young lovers of yore firmly ensconced within the regret and compromise of middle age — also finds them grappling with intimations of aging and mortality. Jesse and Celine still tease, seduce, wind each other up and prattle on, but there’s an autumnal whiff to even their sunniest repartee. “Before Midnight” — which, like the previous films, was cowritten by Linklater, Hawke and Delpy — begins in Greece, where Jesse is taking his son Hank (Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick) to the airport after the teenager has joined

Jesse, Celine and their twin daughters on vacation. After a goodbye, Jesse and Celine drive back to the villa they’re sharing with friends. With the camera trained almost constantly through the windshield on their faces, the first of the film’s long, unbroken conversations commences. Oddly, of all the soliloquies in “Before Midnight” — and there are

many — the most profound comes from a satellite figure, an older woman who joins the couple for lunch and holds the table rapt as she describes her attempts to preserve the memory of her late husband. It’s an enthralling moment, full of sadness and evanescent beauty. Linklater is a filmmaker astute and confident enough just to let it play.

Joyce’s “The Leaf Men” might be guilty of overselling itself, just a bit. As in the book, the Leafmen are a race of bug-size soldiers who maintain the order and balance of the natural world. Riding saddled hummingbirds, they keep the forces of decay and rot — embodied by creatures known as the Boggans — at bay. But when Mandrake (voice of Christoph Waltz), the evil leader of the Boggans, attacks the Leafmen’s queen (Beyonce Knowles) and steals the magical flower bud containing the soul of her replacement, the Leafmen must fight to get it back before its power is perverted into poisoning all life.

The Great Gatsby (PG-13, 142 MINUTES) “It’s like an amusement park.” That’s Nick Carraway, the wide-eyed, ever-present narrator of “The Great Gatsby,” describing one of the legendary parties thrown by the movie’s fabulously wealthy and elusive title character. But Carraway could just as easily be referring to the very movie he finds himself in, a hyper-real, hyperactive, hyperbolic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel that spares no flower, flapper or fringe in bringing Jazz Age decadence to throbbing life. It’s glib to suggest that director Baz Luhrmann has made a “Great Gatsby” for idiots; it’s more like he’s made it for infants, who prefer their nourishment premasticated and their stories pictorialized by way of bright, arresting images.

‘The Killing’ retools after it was briefly canceled last year Season Premiere

“The Killing” lives. SUN This AMC whodun8:00 it, which solved a tangled murder case — Who killed Rosie Larsen? — during two gripping, sometimes exasperating seasons, then was canceled last July because of low ratings, will rise from the dead for a third season Sunday. The renewal preserves one of TV’s most delicious acting duos — co-stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman — and sets up a troubling new case for Stephen Holder, the glib, gangly Seattle homicide detective played so splendidly by Kinnaman. The action picks up a year after homicide detective Sarah Linden (Enos), Holder’s glowering, pintsized ex-partner, left the force. Her nerves and dedication were shat-

But a serial killer (played chillingly by Peter Sarsgaard) she helped put away a couple of years before is nearing his execution date — even as similarly grisly murders have resumed in Seattle. Holder worries that the wrong man may have been convicted for those earlier crimes. The season brings a number of

Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic (SHO) Filmmaker Marina Zenovich (“Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired”) turns her lens on another frequently controversial figure in this new documentary. She tells the late comedian and actor’s story with clips from his stand-up and memories from those who knew him.

What Would You Do? (ABC) The eye-opening hidden-camera series returns for another season of revealing people’s reactions to uncomfortable everyday scenarios and why they chose to intervene — or not to. John Quinones hosts. Princesses: Long Island (BRAVO) This new series follows six college-educated young women — Amanda, Ashlee, Casey, Coco, Erica and Joey, right — who live with their parents in Long Island. Their respective folks are hoping each girl will find love soon and move out.

Top Hooker (ANIMAL) Stop smirking; this new competitive series is about fishing. Ten expert anglers are put through extreme fishing challenges in hopes of winning the title and a cash prize. (TRIBUNE MEDIA)

From Just $4!

Branching Out “Treehouse Masters” (10 p.m. Fridays, Animal Planet) follows a former homebuilder from New Jersey who has found a lucrative career building custom tree houses. But these arboreal homes aren’t like Bart Simpson’s cobbled-together, leafy retreat on “The Simpsons.” The modern tree-house movement puts the accent on big, ostentatious and fully appointed tree havens.

More importantly, to avert a repeat of the misunderstanding when Season 1 ended with a cliffhanger that had viewers howling, the show pledges to solve this new case by the season’s 12th and final episode.

“Next up: all photos in the SunTimes will be selfies.” — COMMENTER JASON FEIFER AT JIMROMENESKO.COM

upon learning that the Chicago Sun-Times on Thursday laid off its entire photography staff — 28 full-time employees — and plans to use freelancers and reporters to shoot photos and video, the Chicago Tribune reported. The layoffs are effective immediately.

“Unless Governor Rick Perry uses his veto, Texas is set to enact the most stringent email privacy protections in the country.” — BRANTLEY HARGROVE AT BLOGS.DALLASOBSERVER .COM reacts to new legisla-

tion, passed unanimously, that would require state law-enforcement agencies to secure search warrants before accessing emails. Perry has until June 16 to sign the bill or veto it.

“Remember how annoyed you were when that massive three-minute ‘Man of Steel’ trailer came out and you felt like you basically saw the whole movie? Well, the owners of movie theaters nationwide were equally annoyed.” — JESSE DAVID FOX AT VULTURE.COM sums up

a Hollywood Reporter article that says the National Association of Theater Owners is pushing to limit the length of film trailers to two minutes — 30 seconds shorter than they are now — because they give away too much of the plot.

“A Portland, Maine, physician believes he’s found the cure for this country’s ailing health care system: No more health insurance.” — NEETZAN ZIMMERMAN AT GAWKER.COM responds to

Dr. Michael Ciampi’s announcement that he will not be accepting insurance and instead is posting a price list on his website. Brief visits cost $50, and minor surgery costs $200 to $250.

“While the campaigners on this issue are to be commended for raising awareness of such awful speech on Facebook’s platform, their proposed solution is ultimately futile and sets a dangerous precedent for special interest groups looking to bring their pet issue to the attention of Facebook’s censors.” — THE XX FACTOR’S JILLIAN YORK AT SLATE.COM hopes Facebook is able

to walk a fine line between hate speech and free speech after the company responded to a call to take down hateful anti-women messages on its website by vowing to “do better” in removing offensive content more quickly.

DIFFICULT

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) That which is most important to you may have to be put on a back burner for the time being while you face another, more volatile, situation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will have the chance today to explore certain issues that have been considered off-limits in the past for some reason. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Now is the time for you to reach out and reconnect with someone who has been out of the picture for quite some time. You need him or her. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Use your head as much as your heart today and you’ll be able to balance two important issues that would otherwise be in conflict. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You will find yourself reflecting on the past a great deal at this time — but you mustn’t neglect one or two current duties.

Yesterday’s Solution

Yesterday’s Solution

FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The more you are able to get done today, the more you will be able to plan tomorrow — and planning is where the real fun lies! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Routine affairs are likely to pull you away from those things you really want to be doing — but this is only a temporary necessity.

Comics

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Only a carefully coordinated effort is likely to win the day — and you’ll have to pick your partner with great care.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your body is likely to know what is required of you today — so listen to what the signs are telling you!

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can enjoy a rare second chance — but don’t overlook it simply because you don’t think time is of the essence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can benefit from sitting back and watching what others are doing around you. It’ll soon be your turn once more to take part directly.

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

So, Is This Jacket Vintage or Antique? After a two-year ordeal, the jacket worn by Corey Feldman in 1989’s “Dream a Little Dream” has been returned to the actor, TMZ.com reported. The jacket, stolen in Los Angeles, re-emerged at a flea market in Boston. The man who bought the jacket offered to return it in exchange for a fancy weekend in L.A. and a donation to his charity of choice. (EXPRESS)

Rick Schroder, who starred in the ’80s sitcom “Silver Spoons,” told “ABC News Now” that he pities fellow former child stars Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes. “My heart goes out to them,” said Schroder, 43. “They are in a place right now that is not good. A lot of people around them don’t care about them and want to capitalize on it. I feel bad for them.” (EXPRESS)

Neighbor Says Curry’s Heart Two Sizes Too Small

Ricky poses with the robot head that will one day contain his consciousness.

A man who lives next door to a home owned by Ann Curry told the National Enquirer (quoted by Radaronline.com) that Curry is a bad neighbor. “Our quality of life was destroyed” by renovations to Curry’s home, John Lee said. “She’s an uncaring, mean-spirited person.” (E XPRESS)

The only way this could be cuter is if he were with a koala.

CONFUSION

‘More’ ‘Clarity’ ‘Please’ Patrick Stewart announced Wednesday via Twitter that he ate his “first ever pizza ‘slice.’ Please note: the authentic NY fold.” As speculation raged over why “slice” was in quotes, he tweeted an unhelpful clarification: “1) I’ve never had a ‘slice’ 2) I’ve been a Habs [Montreal Canadiens] fan all of 4 weeks 3) I’m also a fan of Bloomberg’s soda legislation.” With “slice” still in quotes, it remains unclear whether he meant his first piece of pizza ever or his first slice of New York pizza. (E XPRESS)

LeAnn Rimes assured Usmagazine .com that she and Eddie Cibrian will have children — but not at this moment. “I was just with the kids for the last two days taking care of them on my own,” she said of Cibrian’s sons, Mason, 9, and Jake, 6. “I have a newfound respect for working moms who do it all by themselves.” She called the boys “birth control.” (EXPRESS)

“I think I’m going to breastfeed him until he goes to college! I’m hooked!” — SH A K IR A TOLD USMAGAZINE.COM THAT “BREASTFEEDING [HER SON] HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE.” SHE ADDED: “I CAN’T STOP!”
