Rhyming Dictionaries Added To the Jail’s Contraband List A Pennsylvania woman is accused of duping jail guards who released her instead of an inmate with a similarsounding name. Evelyn Grace Campbell is back in lockup after Friday’s mix-up when bail was posted on behalf of Maretta Ruth Gamble. Campbell stepped forward when guards called for Gamble then escaped after telling the bail bondsman she didn’t have ID before he let her sign release papers and leave, the warden said.

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday released an internal audit of the agency’s 731 medical centers, a response to recent controversy around delays in treatment. Here are some of the most important things to note from the report. JAIME FULLER (THE WASHINGTON POST ) 57,000 veterans have been waiting at least 90 days for their first appointment at a VA medical center. The audit concluded that the agency’s goal of getting all veterans an appointment within 14 days is unfeasible given the growing demand for medical care and the VA shouldn’t have promised it could get veterans appointments in 14 days because it never had the resources to do so. Honolulu had the worst average wait time in the audit, at 145 days. The average wait time in Baltimore was 81 days and 73 days in Richmond. What’s being done: The VA plans to publish data on wait times twice a month now and start contacting patients on wait lists to get them to the doctor as soon as possible.

13 percent of VA schedulers were told by higher ups to fudge appointment requests. The audit found at least one instance of falsified records at 76 percent of medical centers. In addition, “In at least 2 clinics, respondents believed someone else (not a scheduler) was routinely accessing records and changing desired dates in order to improve performance measures.� At 24 medical centers, schedulers reported that they were threatened or coerced into changing the appointment requests. At two audit sites, schedulers were punished for not falsifying appointment requests. What’s being done: The VA said it plans to take action against employees who falsified records.

The biggest barrier to getting veterans medical care was a lack of open appointment slots. Other reasons for wait times included a lack of staffers trained to schedule appointments, inadequate training of staffers and the complexities of the VA’s computer scheduling system. The report also said that the VA was not calling veterans to remind them about upcoming appointments enough. What’s being done: Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and John McCain, R-Ariz., are working on a bill that would let veterans facing long wait times go to out of network for health-care providers. It would also provide about $500 million for the agency to hire additional medical personnel.

Did You Know... Sleep Apnea takes 16 years off your life (more than smoking!); and 80% of people who have Sleep Apnea don't know until it's too late?

The VA has started the Accelerating Access to Care Initiative to help 100,000 veterans facing long wait times. The VA has trained more than 900 staffers in the first big effort to increase efficiency at the agency. It will likely need to pay out some serious overtime, given how big the VA’s backlog is at this point. The report said 112 — or 15 percent — of the 731 VA facilities that auditors visited will require additional investigation, because of indications that data on patients’ appointment dates may have been falsified, or that workers may have been instructed to falsify lists, or other problems.


57,000 Patients Waiting For First VA Appointment Las Vegas Sheriff Doug Gillespie talks Monday about Jerad and Amanda Miller.

Police: Vegas Killers Had Anti-Government Views Las Vegas A husband and wife who went on a deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas harbored anti-government beliefs and left a swastika and a “Don’t tread on meâ€? ag on the body of one of the two police ofďŹ cers they killed, authorities said Monday. Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said Jerad and Amanda Miller had ideology shared by “militia and white supremacists,â€? including the belief that law enforcement was the “oppressor.â€? Authorities believe the shootings were an isolated act, not part of a broader conspiracy to target law enforcement, McMahill said. Ammon Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, said the Millers were

at his father’s Nevada ranch for a few days this spring before they were asked to leave for unspeciďŹ ed “conductâ€? problems. On Sunday, the Millers killed two Las Vegas police ofďŹ cers who were having lunch at a pizza buffet about 5 miles northeast of the Las Vegas Strip. The attack at a CiCi’s Pizza killed ofďŹ cers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31. The Millers then ed to a WalMart about a block away, where they killed shopper Joseph Wilcox. As police closed in, Amanda Miller shot her husband several times with a handgun, killing him, ofďŹ cials said. She then fatally shot herself in the head. MICHELLE RINDELS AND JUSTIN PRITCHARD (AP)

Pakistan Attack Kills Peace Talks Taliban says airport assault was revenge for U.S. drone strike


Islamabad, Pakistan Heav ily armed gunmen who attacked Karachi’s international airport planned to destroy airplanes and possibly take hostages, Pakistani government and security officials said Monday. The attackers, some disguised as security forces, stormed parts of Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport late Sunday, killing at least 18 people before government troops regained control early Monday. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the assault, which appeared to dash hopes for peace talks. The attack began around 11 p.m. Sunday and lasted until dawn. It was well-coordinated and involved 10 attackers who were carrying gre-

nades, suicide vests, rocket launchers, rifles and enough food for a prolonged assault, officials said. Mohyuddin Ahmad Wani, a spokesman for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, said the attackers “planned to destroy all the airplanes” at the airport. “The terrorists had a plan to bring down our aviation industry,” Wani said. About 90 minutes after the siege began, however, hundreds of Paki-

stani army commandos arrived on the scene. They quickly engaged the terrorists, eventually killing eight of them. Two others detonated explosives when cornered, officials said. Around 5 a.m. Monday, an army spokesman declared that the airport had been secured. No passengers were killed or wounded in the attack. But the militants killed at least 18 other people, including more than a dozen

The Taliban said the assault on Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, was revenge for recent Pakistani military airstrikes in northwestern Pakistan and the November killing of the militant group’s leader in a U.S. drone strike.

security officials, authorities said. Four Pakistan International Airlines employees were also reported killed. In a statement Monday, Shahidullah Shahid, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, said the attack should be viewed as a sign that Sharif’s efforts to engage the group in peace talks had failed.

Chinese App Shames Polluters Beijing A Chinese environmental group launched a smartphone app Monday that tracks and shames polluting factories, highlighting how the country is making environmental data more available and enabling public monitoring of companies that pollute. The app gives, where available, hourly updates on emissions reported by factories to local authorities and shows the plants as color-coded points on a map, with violators of emissions limits in red. It also gives government air pollution data for areas throughout the country. The Environment Ministry requires about 15,000 factories

nationwide to report their air emissions in real time to local environmental officials. Since the beginning of this year, the government has required that the data be made

public and some provincial governments have started posting it on websites, though it has not been collected in one place until now. The availability of such data is a far cry from three years ago, when Chinese authorities kept secret their data on PM2.5 — tiny particles in the air that are considered a good gauge of air quality. Now, PM2.5 data is a key part of published air quality indexes. The new app is produced by the Beijing-based Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs. The group said the real-time monitoring showed that as many as 370 large industrial companies were producing excessive emissions Monday. LOUISE WAT T (AP)

It said it also planned to engage a licensed private investigation company to follow up on that information. (AP)

Officials worry about a potential delay of the summer opening Tysons Corner, Va. The builders of Metro’s Silver Line, under pressure to finish the project so that passenger service can begin just weeks from now, are behind schedule on many final work items, leaving transit officials worried about a potential delay of the rail line’s hoped-for summer opening, a top Metro manager said Monday. Rob Troup, Metro’s chief of operations, noted that contractors working for the Metropolitan

Washington Airports Authority, which is overseeing construction of the project, agreed in writing to complete 33 “punch list” items in time for riders to start using the Silver Line this summer. That memorandum of understanding, or MOU, was hailed in April as a big step toward finishing the current phase of the much-delayed project. “However,” Troup told reporters Monday, “we do have concern that the airports authority and the contractor are behind schedule on approximately half of the items.” He said: “This is work that has to be completed before we start [passenger] service. We expected them to be further along at this point.”


Silver Line Falls Behind Schedule Again

The Silver Line was originally scheduled to be completed by late 2013.

The Silver Line contractors, led by construction giant Bechtel, are known collectively as Dulles Transit Partners. The project’s first phase is 11.7 miles of track with four new stations in Tysons Corner and one

in Reston. Originally scheduled to be done by late 2013, its current estimated cost is $2.9 billion, about $150 million over budget. To hasten the start of passenger service, Metro agreed to take

control of the Silver Line before the contractors had completed their work. The transfer of control, on May 27, allowed Metro to begin 90 days of testing the line, with the understanding that Dulles Transit Partners would finish the project in that period. Although Troup on Monday declined to estimate when the Silver Line will open, he did not explicitly dash hope that it will be running by summer’s end. In making it clear that Metro is unhappy with the contractors’ progress, however, he seemed to be publicly prodding Bechtel and its partners to pick up their pace.

Carol Schwartz Launches D.C. Mayoral Bid Ex-Council member’s run as independent could shake up race Washington Carol Schwartz, a mold-breaking politician who served 16 years on the D.C. Council, said Monday she will launch a late-breaking independent campaign for mayor — her fifth bid for D.C.’s highest office. Though it has been more than five years since Schwartz appeared on a D.C. ballot, her surprise entry unsettled a mayoral race that had

been shaping up as a duel between Democratic nominee Muriel Bowser and independent David Catania. After Schwartz announced her intentions Monday, Catania’s campaign accused Bowser of playing a background role in Schwartz’s run in a bid to siphon votes that might otherwise go to Catania. “I think it’s a clear signal of how worried and concerned the Bowser campaign is,” said campaign manager Ben Young. Both Schwartz and Bowser’s campaign manager, Bo Shuff, denied any arrangement. “There haven’t been any conversations,” Shuff said.

to do with her own decision: “This isn’t about anybody else running for office,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to be mayor.” During her four terms on the council, Schwartz was an unusual presence in District politics — a Mississippi-born, Texas-bred white Republican in a mostly Democratic, African-American milieu. But over three decades, starting from the city’s old elected school board to the Council to her long-shot mayoral runs, she built one of the most memorable brands in city politics. Schwartz, 70, has been out of politics since losing her 2008 re-

The fact that Schwartz, also a former Republican with years of name recognition, could cut most directly into Catania’s support raised the prospect that she may be running in part Schwartz to deny the mayoralty to Catania, with whom she clashed frequently during her final years in office and whom she has blamed for her 2008 electoral loss. Schwartz on Monday denied that Catania’s run had anything

election bid, falling to a Republican primary challenger backed by Catania, then failing to gain traction in a subsequent write-in bid. But Schwartz said Monday she was compelled to join the mayoral race after becoming dissatisfied with the leading candidates. “I wanted somebody to vote for Nov. 4 that I felt comfortable voting for,” she said. “A lot of people feel the same way. So here is another choice.” Schwartz said she decided less than two weeks ago to pursue the mayoralty and has little in the way of campaign infrastructure. MIKE DeBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Richmond Amid a firestorm of criticism regarding his resignation from the Virginia Senate, Democrat Phillip Puckett is withdrawing his name from consideration for a job with the state tobacco commission, according to two people with knowledge of the decision. Puckett formally resigned his seat Monday and was expected to be appointed deputy director of the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission, possibly as soon as this week. But after Democrats accused

Puckett of selling out, and potentially dooming Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s efforts to expand Medicaid, he decided to remain at his job in banking, according to two people who were familiar with his decision. It’s not clear whether the criticism fueled his decision. In a statement, Puckett said that reports that he had resigned his seat to accept a paid job with the commission were “untrue.” He confirmed that one factor was helping his daughter secure a state judgeship, but without offering details, he said that additional, personal factors were at work. “My family is dealing with sev-

eral difficult issues that need our attention,” Puckett wrote. “I ask that you respect our privacy.” Puckett also reiterated his support for Medicaid expansion and questioned the premise that his resignation would throw the Senate’s support of the measure in jeopardy. Meanwhile, Attorney General Mark Herring issued a statement decrying the appearance of “political gamesmanship” but claiming no investigative role for his office — despite accusations of wrongdoing and calls for investigation from fellow Democrats.

Members of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church picketed D.C.’s Wilson High School on Monday, railing against the school’s gay Pride Day and its principal, who came out as gay to his school community during last week’s pride rally. But the Kansas church’s message was largely drowned out, dwarfed by hundreds of students and community members who gathered in front of the school for a peaceful counterprotest. Led by student organizers, the crowd chanted and waved rainbow flags and signs pro-

claiming “Love is Love” and “I Have Two Moms And Life Is Good.” “I’ve never seen this many people come together, even at a sporting event,” said student body president Jennifer Li, who helped organize the rally with members of Wilson’s Gay Straight Alliance. Around the corner stood fewer than a dozen members of Westboro Baptist, an anti-gay group known for protesting at military funerals. The Westboro protesters held their customary signs, including “Same sex marriage dooms nations” and others emblazoned with anti-gay slurs. EMMA BROWN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Hearts All Atwitter

For many couples, the digital path to the altar starts on social networks


Cover Story

#Tweethearts Such is the seduction of social network love that Laurie Davis, the founder of eFlirt Expert, a prominent consulting company that helps singles write better dating website profiles, got married last month in Boston to a man she met on Twitter. Their wedding was decorated with 4,000 little Twitter birds cut out of paper. Table names were hashtags, such as #tweetheart, displayed on iPads. Guests were encouraged to tweet, not put their phones away. “Our #lovestory began in 140 characters on Twitter with the flick of a retweet,” the couple wrote in an online compilation of the tweets.

Romance in Plain View

Not Everything Is Likable There are downsides of finding love on social networks, too. For starters, flirters must be comfortable wooing in public. And then there is the research showing the potential drawback of social network use in relationships, particularly just-formed ones. Researcher Russell Clayton has published two studies looking at how heavy Facebook and Twitter use in relationships can lead to jealousy. “Individuals who are on Facebook may often be indirectly neglecting their partner, directly neglecting their partner by communication with former partners and developing Facebook-related jealousy or constant partner monitoring,” according to one study. “High levels of Facebook use may also serve as an indirect temptation for physical and/or emotional cheating.” (T WP)

even paying attention to it, could be this important — I was very surprised.” Many of the marriages in Hall’s study had their roots in early social net work s such as Myspace a nd, before Facebook and Twitter’s rise. Hall thinks social networking’s more recent hold on our daily lives means a big wave of marriages is yet to come. What fascinates researchers is how social networks are able to connect potential lovers who circulate in similar worlds, with similar interests and backgrounds. After they met, Alexander and Dowell-Vest realized they had often been to the same events and parties.

Dating experts and communication researchers say social networks also offer clues — shared news links, pictures from daily life, how people interact with friends — that dating profiles don’t typically expose. And activity there tends to be more honest. Some 54 percent of online daters suspect people have misrepresented themselves in profiles, according to a Pew study. And Hall said dating profiles have a way of limiting choices. “You’re looking at very narrow criteria like physical appearance and age. You can diminish your quality of choices. Social networks weren’t designed this way.” MICHAEL ROSENWALD ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Last year, an illness in Teresa DowellVest’s family had them spending long hours at a hospital. Michelle Alexander impressed her partner’s family by packing enough food that nobody would have to leave the hospital room. Dowell-Vest, left, was overwhelmed with love and ready to propose. She enlisted some of their friends to get candles and meet them that night at a park, where she took Alexander for a walk. Dowell-Vest got down on one knee and proposed, a moment captured on YouTube (of course). Alexander accepted. “It was perfect,” she said. (T WP)


Teresa Dowell-Vest and Michelle Alexander fell in love through a status update. The District couple had gazed at photos of each other while commenting on Facebook updates of acquaintances. They added each other as friends. One day, Dowell-Vest, 42, reminisced about her grade-school Trapper Keeper folder. Alexander pounced, finding a photo online of a similar folder. She posted it to the status update. Dowell-Vest’s heart danced. “And it was all she wrote from there,” Alexander said. They will be married this week at Meridian Hill Park in Northwest. With studies showing that one-third of married couples started their relationships online, finding romance via URLs is no longer as novel — and creepy — as it once seemed. But now the digital aisle to marriage is transforming, moving from dating sites to social networks, where couples say encounters are more revealing and, with witty tweets and thoughtful status updates, more like flirting in the analog world. “You can follow someone over time and see consistency in character,” said Alexander, a writer and activist. “You can sit back and watch to see if it’s someone you want to reach out to.” A recent study found that nearly 21 percent of people who discovered their spouses online and got married between 2005 and 2012 met through social networking sites, representing about the same amount of people who met offline through school. “What’s amazing is that this has basically happened without anyone really noticing,” said Jeff Hall, a University of Kansas expert on flirting styles and the author of the study. “The idea that social networking, without anyone researching it, without anyone



Followers and Friends Laura Olin and James Hupp, both 32, met on Twitter. He’s a digital content strategist at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She works in digital campaigns; she was the voice behind President Barack Obama’s Twitter account during the 2012 election. Several years ago, Hupp tweeted that he was looking for a good D.C. political movie. Olin replied, suggesting “The More the Merrier,” a comedy from 1943. He started following her. And they began exchanging tweets. Their online courtship was long and halting. They bumped into each other at parties. At one point, Olin unfollowed him and deleted many of her tweets as she began working on Obama’s campaign. One day she followed him again. Their common friends, seeing love in their Twitter streams, encouraged them to get together. Finally, they began dating in March 2013. (T WP)

Sports Right-hander hasn’t lost since his first start of the season

10:15 P.M. Today | MASN2

After a forgettable first outing, Doug Fister has fit right in at the end of the Nationals’ rotation. The right-hander, who missed the first month of the season with a lat injury, has surrendered only eight earned runs in his past five starts — all games the Nationals won. And it hasn’t just been his fastball that’s been working for Fister. In his most recent start against the Phillies, he worked his curveball for a few strikeouts, and his changeup kept hitters off-balance. “The main focus is staying down in the zone and being able to move in and out,” Fister said. When searching for a pitcher to round out the rotation in 2013, the Nationals turned to Dan Haren. But that acquisition didn’t work out, with Haren going 10-14 with a 4.67 ERA. This year, the Nationals replaced Haren with Fister and are reaping the benefits of the trade with Detroit.



Right-hander Doug Fister is 4-1 with a 3.19 ERA in his first season with the Nationals.

In six starts this season, Fister (4-1, 3.19 ERA) has walked only 1.4 percent of the batters he’s faced, according to His WHIP is 0.982 and he’s struck out 28 batters in 362 ⁄3 innings. “He’s awesome, isn’t he?” right

fielder Jayson Werth said. “You gotta love playing behind a guy like that. He’s into the game. He works fast. He throws strikes. There’s not a whole lot there you don’t like.” Fister has also shown his athleticism in the field. In the series

finale against Philadelphia, Ryan Howard hit a ground ball to first baseman Adam LaRoche, who then attempted a double play by throwing the ball to Danny Espinosa, who was covering second base. Fister covered first and did his best to try to catch Espinosa’s throw before Howard could reach base. He extended his leg as far as possible before he was in a full split. “I t hou ght he ble w out ,” LaRoche said. He didn’t. Fister got up and walked back to the mound to finish the inning. The 6-foot-8 righty will be on the mound today against the NLleading Giants. Prior to Monday’s game, the Nationals had won seven of their past 10 games. “Playing together and well adds a lot of momentum to us,” Fister said. “We’re able to come in every day and put forth the energy, the focus and drive to play this game.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

The U.S. World Cup team has arrived in Brazil. The Americans landed in Sao Paulo on Monday morning on an overnight commercial flight from Miami and reached their downtown hotel on a bus with the American flag and the slogan “United by team, driven by passion.” Motorcycled police with the Stars and Stripes sticking out of their wheels preceded the bus, and a helicopter hovered. Four soldiers in fatigues, about two dozen police in riot gear and what appeared to be several plain clothes security stood outside the hotel, which is adjacent to a park

on a tree-lined street. The team was met with applause when it entered the lobby. The Americans will train at nearby Sao Paulo FC until Friday. They then fly 1,450 miles north to Natal for their Group G opener Monday against Ghana, the team that eliminated them from the last two World Cups. An initial training session in Brazil was scheduled for late afternoon. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann remained in Miami to scout Monday night’s warmup game between Ghana and South Korea. Appearing in their seventh straight World Cup, the Americans also play Portugal and Germany in the group stage. RONALD BLUM (AP)

Pinehurst Is Going All Natural U.S. Open Pinehurst No. 2 is anything but perfect for the U.S. Open, at least in the traditional sense of major championships in America. USGA executive director Mike Davis could not be any more thrilled. “It’s awesome,” Davis said Monday as he gazed out at a golf course that looks like a yard that hasn’t been watered in a month. Sandy areas have replaced thick rough off the fairways. They are partially covered with what Pinehurst Resort officials refer to as “natural vegetation,” but what most anyone else would simply call weeds. The edges of the bunkers are ragged. The turf is uneven just off some of the greens, with patches of no grass. Instead of verdant fairways from tee-to-green, the fairways are a blend of green, yellow and brown. That was the plan all along. Shortly after this Donald Ross gem was awarded its third U.S. Open in 15 years, the fabled No. 2 course went through a gutsy project to restore it to its natural look from yesteryear.

Sports Receiver has plenty of competition with offseason additions Redskins Santana Moss turned 35 this month and has played 13 NFL seasons. The Redskins made upgrades at his position this offseason by signing wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts as free agents. But when it was suggested to Moss last week that he faces more competition than usual to secure a spot on the Redskins’ season-opening roster, he said the situation is nothing new from his perspective.

“I’ve never not had to go work for my job,” Moss said following an offseason practice at Redskins Park. “So at the end of the day, there’s always competition.” Even so, Moss acknowledged that his approach to the sport has changed in recent seasons. “Honestly, the more you hear, the more you’ve been around this league, you mature a lot more and appreciate what you’re doing a lot more,” he said. “For the last four or five years, my appreciation of the game has been a little different.” Moss had 42 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns last season as the Redskins went 3-13 and then fired Mike Shanahan as

their coach. Moss said there’s plenty of work to be done to ensure that things will be different under the team’s new coach, Jay Gruden.

“I just feel like last year things didn’t go as well as we had planned,” he said. “And it should have. I feel like the coaching staff, they did a tremendous job of getting us ready every week. At the end of the day, we went out there and laid the eggs. … Right now we’re trying to build so we don’t have that same lapse.” A coaching change always brings optimism in the NFL, Moss said. “When it’s new, everything is all good,” he said. “It’s just like getting that new girlfriend. You had the old one and she got on your nerves. The new one ain’t gonna get on your nerves until down the road. When it’s new, everything is all good.” MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Heat guard Dwyane Wade, right, has averaged 16.5 points a game in the NBA Finals.

Wade, Heat Fully Ready For Spurs’ Counterpunch NBA Finals Dwyane Wade thinks there’s no one better than the Miami Heat at dealing with the mental challenge of the playoffs. In his eyes, only one other team might compare. He’s talking about the San Antonio Spurs. That’s why Wade believes these NBA Finals are just getting started. When he looks at the Spurs, he sees qualities his own team has, including an ability to break down a loss and quickly correct things. It’s what Miami did before Game 2 of the Finals, and it’s what Wade expects the Spurs to do before the title series resumes with Game 3 in Miami tonight. “You never put them away,” Wade said. “I think they always believe and it’s the same with us. You can’t, you won’t, put us away because we’re always going to believe. That’s why this is a perfect, different animal, kind of series. They’re the other team like


us. They don’t lose much and when they do they come back and be better in the next game. So we’ve got to come out and do the same thing.” That would explain why on Monday, instead of a day off, the Heat gathered to watch video of Game 2. By winning in San Antonio to even the finals at 1-1, home-court advantage now belongs to the Heat. But no one in their locker room thinks it’s going to get easy now. “They came out great. They played a great game,” Spurs guard Tony Parker said after Miami’s 98-96 win in Game 2. “Now it’s our turn to go over there and get one. We played pretty well all season long on the road and so we’re going to have two great opportunities to try to come up with a win.” TIM REYNOLDS (AP)

George Mason Names New AD

More than two decades after winning a Super Bowl ring with the Redskins, Brad Edwards is back in the neighborhood as the new athletic director at George Mason.

The former safety will use football to play the fundraising game, though, having retained Redskins connections in the area. (AP)

Former UCLA star is lead plaintiff in suit against the NCAA College Basketball

The battle to give top football and basketball players a cut of the billions of dollars flowing into college athletics began in earnest Monday with former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon taking the stand in federal court to describe how he spent long hours working on his game and as few as possible on his grades. The lead plaintiff in a landmark antitrust suit against the NCAA said his goal at UCLA wasn’t to get a degree, but to get two years of college experience before being drafted into the NBA. “I was an athlete masquerading as a student,” O’Bannon said. “I was there strictly to play basketball. I did basically the minimum to make sure I kept my eligibility academically so I could continue to play.” The testimony came as a trial that could upend the way col-



O’Bannon Takes Stand

Former UCLA star Ed O’Bannon helped lead the Bruins to a national title in 1995.

Meanwhile … As the trial began, the NCAA announced it had reached a $20 million settlement in a related case involving video games that used the likeness and images of players without getting their permission. NCAA attorney Donald Remy acknowledged that the settlement in a suit brought by former Arizona State and Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller will result in some current players getting money but doesn’t change the NCAA’s strong belief that the collegiate athletic model is lawful. (AP)

lege sports are regulated opened, five years after the suit was filed. O’Bannon and 19 other plaintiffs are asking U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken for an injunction that would allow athletes to sell the rights to their own images in television broadcasts and rebroadcasts. If successful, the plaintiffs in the class-action case — who are not asking for individual damages — could pave the way for a system that uses some of the huge money flowing into television contracts to pay athletes for their play once they are done with their college careers.

California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn apologized Monday for his bitter remarks after his horse failed to win the Triple Crown. Coburn said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” he was “very ashamed. I need to apologize to a lot of people, including my wife, Carolyn.” She tried to intervene as Saturday’s interview got out of control, explaining that her husband was “very emotional and I was trying to calm him down.” Coburn also apologized to the connections of winning horse Tonalist, saying: “I did not mean to take anything away from them.” On Saturday, he had said that Tonalist took “the coward’s way out” by skipping the first two legs of the Triple Crown. On Sunday, he doubled down by pointing out that “it wouldn’t be fair if I played basketball with a child in a wheelchair because I got an unfair advantage.” (AP)

Kevin Mullins, a competitor on “The Next Top Trainer,” leads a Super Hero Workout class at the Sports Club/LA in D.C.

“If you don’t know why you’re doing it, that’s a problem,” Campbell says. Mullins, however, cleanly and clearly demonstrated his moves, which included a pushup with a knee tuck and a squat with a rotating press. Those compound movements are at the core of his personal fitness philosophy, so he was in his comfort zone. The judges questioned whether he had enough years under his belt in the industry — nothing is more important than experience, Campbell says — but they were won over by his work ethic, energy level and education. In addition to having a degree in kinesiology and a personal trainer certification, Mullins is also a certified Olympic strength coach. Plus, he teaches group exer-

(“I had done some shirtless modeling in college — I was a favorite of art students,” he says.) But Mullins was well rehearsed, and appeared confident as he stepped in front of the panel to present his two-minute fitness challenge. There were many ways to mess up, and many other guys did, Campbell says. If their form was off, they were dinged immediately. If their programming didn’t make sense, ditto.

In addition to private training, he teaches two classes: Athletic Interval (Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.) and Super Hero Workout (Fridays at 7 a.m.). Both will test your muscles and deliver results, he promises. (E XPRESS)

ground holds up as Mullins and the other contestants take on a series of challenges. All eight episodes were filmed in New York in May over the course of a single week. In Monday’s premiere, the guys got worked to exhaustion, and then needed to find the energy to step up and teach. Future episodes feature equally telling tests, Campbell reveals. In one, they’re given a piece of fitness equipment and must show several ways to use it. In another, they’re tasked with completing as many variations on the pushup as possible. (Be prepared for some stunners, says Campbell, who’s still reeling from seeing one guy do a “flying pushup,” which involves pushing off so powerfully that you’re not touching the ground, and have time to spread out your arms and legs like you’re Superman before landing.) It wasn’t easy, Mullins admits. But he wouldn’t have wanted it to be. “Iron sharpens iron. By being around that experience, I got better,” says Mullins, who can’t reveal how he did. One trick he picked up? How to be so motivational that people “have no option but respond well to it,” he says. Campbell wants viewers to learn a few things along the way as well. Trainers are normally seen as “meatheads,” he says, so he hopes this series, which emphasizes their knowledge base, can challenge that perception. And it’s an education for people who want to find a top trainer of their own. If you’re unsure of the person you’re working with, “Top Trainer” will provide smart questions to ask and skills to look for. No one in D.C. needs to look too hard, however, Campbell says. He knows a guy. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

Everyone seems to believe that running is bad for the joints, particularly the knees, even though a number of studies have shown no evidence of increased knee problems among typical runners. Today, the modern view holds that excess body weight and too little exercise are the big culprits underlying knee and hip arthritis. Still, old beliefs die hard, while new imaging technologies promise better evidence of joint wear and tear. Then, there are special populations, like first-time marathoners who build their training to get ready for 26.2 miles. What would happen if you focused the new technologies on this group, which is widely thought to have high injury rates? Research published in Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology,

Heat the oven to 450 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then coat it with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the goat cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, scallion greens and lemon zest. Halve the jalapenos lengthwise and carefully remove the ribs and seeds (wear rubber gloves if necessary to protect your hands). Stuff each half with the cheese mixture, being sure to use all of the cheese mixture. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each stuffed jalapeno half, overlapping the ends of the prosciutto on the bottom of the jalapeno. Arrange the poppers on the prepared baking sheet, then bake on the oven’s center rack until the prosciutto is slightly crispy, about 15 minutes. (AP)

The American Lung Association brings its signature fundraiser, the Fight for Air Climb, to the area for the first time this year. Participants — who must pledge to raise $100 — can tackle the 28 floors of the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center either once or twice. “This will make you appreciate your lungs,” ALA’s Kira Koon promises. It’ll also make you appreciate the work of firefighters, several of whom will be participating in their full gear.

New research dispels old beliefs about the toll marathons can take on knees.

Arthroscopy did just that by following the progress of 10 subjects. And it produced results similar to those seen previously: The runners’ knees remained essentially unchanged by training for and completing a first marathon. The authors conclude: “High-impact forces during longdistance running are well tolerated even in marathon beginners and do not lead to clinically relevant cartilage loss.” A MBY BUR FOOT (REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION OF RUNNER’S WORLD ©RODALE INC.)

asking you to relocate to a yurt in Turkmenistan). Now if you’d, um, consider considering a move, then here are things to think about: You don’t love your job and you can’t possibly “know” a move would be permanent. Maybe you can negotiate a probational move with a plan to re-evaluate in two years.

The Coast Isn’t Clear My boyfriend is itching to move across the country because he thinks the West Coast suits him better. I don’t love my job, but I love my friends and the fact that my family is nearby in Philadelphia. And I know that if we move, it will basically be deciding to settle there. Marriage is not imminent, but we’ve been together for two years and we both want it to happen. Is it wrong that I’m not willing to consider this? HAPPY HERE

Second Opinion


No, it’d be wrong for me to tell you what’s acceptable for your relationship. But are you truly not willing to consider it — as in, you would choose the East Coast over being with him? If your mind is made up that way, then I wonder if there’s enough love for you to be even thinking about marriage at all (it’s not like he’s

My husband is a marriage counselor who thinks we should separate. I wish I were kidding. We have been having problems for years, but he has never given legitimate counseling a try. For what it’s worth, we don’t have children, but how can I get him to practice what he preaches? DON’T WANT TO THROW IN THE TOWEL

I never like hearing about therapists

who don’t seem to believe in therapy, but I don’t know much backstory here. Perhaps he believes (rightly or wrongly) that marriage counseling is no match for a fundamental incompatibility. One thing your husband sees on an hourly basis is that counseling can’t force the desire to stay together if it’s missing. It won’t come as a surprise that I think that individual therapy could benefit you. It’s time to work on maximizing your own fulfillment, even if it means breaking away from something you think you want.

“Things went great last week! I feel like I’ve really settled into my groove and continue to move full steam ahead! I used to think I just didn’t have the time to exercise and that I needed a workout buddy (especially in a group setting) to motivate me. But now I know that taking time for myself is an essential part of the health and wellness puzzle—and I’ve met a lot of people like me in my Zumba classes!”

“This past week was tough. The hardest thing I did, other than my workout with Megan, was taking the Body Pump class. It was both tough and rewarding because Body Pump gives you a full-body workout. I also plan to incorporate several new workouts over the next few weeks, including running and boxing.”

TR AINER TIP “Have a backup plan to keep from skipping a workout and always give yourself choices. Are you in the mood for kickboxing, or is it too nice outside to pass up a jog? The question should always be: ‘Which workout?’, not ‘Should I workout?’”

“During my training session last week, we used the TRX suspension trainer. It’s amazing how you can get a full-body workout from it just using your body weight! The hardest part was the triceps exercise. I have such weak arms, I really had to push myself! I was actually sore for days after. My favorite part: squats. I love the way squats shape my legs. Give me any leg workout and I’ll gladly do it!”

A Very Close Call Sandra Bullock was the victim of a burglary at her Los Angeles home 31

John Kerry should call his literary agent: Writing your memoir has become a rite of passage for those leaving the office of the secretary of state. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “Hard Choices” is next in line behind these, written by her four immediate predecessors. BETH MARLOWE (E XPRESS)

Condoleezza Rice (2005 to 2009) In her 2011 memoir, “No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington” ($35, Crown), Condoleezza Rice chronicles what sounds like a stressful eight years — as well as her childhood in the Jim Crow South and her life as an academic. Colin Powell (2001-2005) In 2012, Colin Powell released “It Worked for Me” ($27.99, Harper), a collection of personal stories from his time in ROTC all the way to becoming the first African-American secretary of state. For the full memoir experience (his rise from a Harlem childhood to becoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs) check out his 1995 book, “My American Journey” ($35, Random House). Madeleine Albright (1997-2001) While the words “Madam Secretary” seem common to us these days, they were so unusual when Madeleine Albright became the first female U.S. secretary of state that she made them the title of her 2003 memoir ($18.99, Harper Perennial, paperback). It’s the usual memoir stuff: from a childhood fleeing Hitler in Czechoslovakia to her years as Bill Clinton’s ambassador to the U.N., and then his secretary of state. Warren Christopher (1993-1997) “Chances of a Lifetime” (Scribner) is the 2001 memoir from Warren Christopher, Clinton’s first secretary of state. It follows him from a North Dakota childhood to head of the State Department, working for the Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter administrations in between.

‘Hard Choices’ Ahead

Hillary Clinton’s new memoir is open about her political past, but tight-lipped on 2016 Books

Are you ready for Hillary? If not, this is a week to turn off the television, put aside your morning paper, get off the Internet, never look at your Twitter feed, avoid Facebook and stay out of bookstores. Even then you probably won’t be able to avoid the former secretary of state/ senator/first lady, as she celebrates the release of her new book, “Hard Choices” (Simon & Schuster, $35). Compared with Hillary Rodham Clinton’s book “Living History,” published in 2003, “Hard Choices” is a more interesting read, enriched not simply by her nearly million miles of international travel to 112 countries but more by her accounts of scores of conversations with world leaders as the administration grappled with one challenge after another. Through nearly 600 pages, she comes across less a visionary and more a practical-minded problem solver. The book opens at a low moment in Clinton’s life, when she has lost the difficult nomination battle to Barack Obama in June 2008. “Why on earth was I lying on the backseat of a blue minivan with tinted windows?” she asks. She was on her way to a secret meeting with Obama, their first encounter since the nomination had been decided. She says it was like “two awkward teenagers on a first date.” From these conversations came


the offer to become secretary of state. Clinton says she was “floored” and declined the offer until, she says, it was clear Obama would not take “no” for an answer. Clinton addresses her possible candidacy with a teasing line. “Will I run for president in 2016?” she writes. “The answer is, I haven’t decided yet.” The book ends with this: “The time for another hard choice will come soon enough.” Within the chapters about difficult policy decisions, Clinton laces a few personal anecdotes. Particularly telling is a funny moment with Obama, who pulled her aside during a meeting in Prague. He whispered in her ear, “You’ve got something in your teeth.” She writes that it was something “only a friend would say, and a sign that we were going to have each other’s backs.”

Clinton seeks to project both a deep understanding of the world and a warm, human side to her personality.


Hillary Live! Check out these events where the former secretary of state will promote “Hard Choices.”


Memoir Mania

Hillary Clinton comes across as a level-headed problem solver in “Hard Choices.”

June 13: Hillary Rodham Clinton will discuss the work with Politics and Prose owner and former Clinton speechwriter Lissa Muscatine. The event is already sold out, but Politics and Prose may have additional signed copies afterward. Check for details. June 14: Clinton will be available to sign her book at the Pentagon City Costco; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 17: Clinton will answer audience questions at a CNN Town Hall moderated by Christiane Amanpour at the Newseum; 5 p.m.

Nasim Pedrad Likely Not Returning to ‘SNL’ “Saturday Night Live” cast member Nasim Pedrad revealed Sunday at the ATX Television Festival that she has “an apartment in L.A.,” hinting that she will not return to the late-night sketch show. Pedrad has a co-starring role on new Fox sitcom “Mulaney,” premiering this fall. (EXPRESS) TOGETHER AGAIN

Tonys Ratings Decrease According to preliminary Nielsen figures released Monday, Sunday’s Tony Awards telecast on CBS had an average viewership of 7.02 million viewers, a dip from last year’s 7.24 million. It was still the second-largest audience in the last five years. The broadcast was up against Game 2 of the NBA finals. (AP)

Even Psy is over “Gangnam Style.” The ubiquitous 2012 hit is one Psy knows he probably will never top, and that makes creating new music quite a challenge. “People always comparing my new thing with ‘Gangnam Style,’ which is unbeatable,” Psy said in a recent interview at YouTube Space LA. “That means I have a severe, heavy pressure on my shoulder.” The colorful video featuring the now-iconic horse gallop dance just surpassed 2 billion views, a record for YouTube. The South Korean pop star also holds the record for most views in a day with 38 million for another single, “Gentleman.” Psy, 36, decided switching genres would be his best bet for another hit with his latest single so he teamed with Snoop Dogg on the hip-hop track “Hangover.” He




Yaya DaCosta, best known as “America’s Next Top Model’s” second-season runnerup, will play Whitney Houston in a Lifetime biopic of the late singer, TVLine reports. DaCosta had recurring roles in “All My Children” and “House,” and appeared in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” Angela Bassett is directing the Houston biopic, slated for a 2015 release. (EXPRESS)

South Korean pop star Psy is returning to his EDM roots with his new music.

said the American rapper signed on immediately after only hearing the song’s title. Psy also signed with Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, after “Gangnam’s” initial success. The “Hangover” video, which debuted Sunday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and Psy’s YouTube channel, serves as a lesson in Asian hangover remedies. “This video is not about dance moves, but it’s about like culture exchanging,” Psy said. Psy will return to his EDM roots on a new EP, due later this year. But this time he plans to include more

English lyrics. “All the people you know, except Korea, they don’t have any idea what I’m saying right? They’re just waiting for ‘Hey, sexy lady,’” he said of an English lyric from “Gangnam Style.” “I figured out like maybe from now on I should communicate more.” But for now he’ll continue rapping in his native Korean on Braun’s advice: “He saying, ‘If you are rapping in English we already have so many rappers who’s way better than you. But if you rap in Korean, you’re No. 1 in this country,’ which is really smart.” NICOLE E VAT T (AP)

“And it’s Audra for the six-pack.” — @TIMEOUTNEWYORK reports Audra McDonald’s Tony win Sunday night for best performance in a leading role in a play. McDonald won her sixth Tony award for her portrayal of singer Billie Holiday in “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar And Grill,” making her the most-awarded actress in Tony history. She’s won awards in each of the four performing categories despite only performing in nine Broadway shows since her 1993 debut in “The Secret Garden.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may have several difficult choices to make before this day is out — but one or two will be made with the help of a surprise ally. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It’s time to negotiate more aggressively with those who appear to stand in your way. All arguments are valid; you must work for compromise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) What appears before you may not take the form that you had expected, but you can still do with it what you had planned. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re not likely to receive everything you expected according to schedule, so you must be ready to conserve resources. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your concern for environmental issues — at home and beyond — will compel you to take a few new and surprising steps.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’re eager to see a current phase come to an end, but you’ll be sorry to part with certain things that it has brought to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Take care that your attitude doesn’t come off as too casual or cavalier. There are some things that you must take seriously.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’re grappling with certain issues that require you to think twice about what it is you really want. Your priorities may shift.



AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can remain strong and still work closely with others to see that harmony reigns and conflict is set aside — perhaps permanently.
