A gathering at the Great Salt Lake on Saturday in an attempt to set the world record for the largest number of people floating together, unassisted, in a line at one time fell way short. According to the Guinness World Records, Argentina holds the record after 1,941 people successfully floated together on the surface of Lago EpecuĂŠn de CarhuĂŠ in 2017.

Chief Chris Mannino and another officer stopped their car when they spotted the 3-foot-long snake in the road. But the slippery serpent didn’t surrender; it escaped under the car and into the engine area. Mannino said he finally was able to grab the snake behind its head and safely remove it. The snake wasn’t in custody for long. Police released it in a nearby forest. (AP)

Dinosaurs return — ‘finally!’ Die-hards flock to be among the first to see the new-look fossil hall

Ed Schudel of Reston, Va., poses Saturday under the Tyrannosaurus rex.


MUSEUMS When the gigantic, jungle-patterned curtain was pulled away Saturday morning, letting a herd of dinosaur junkies into the refurbished fossil hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Colin Stancil was right up front. The 17-year-old learned to read at age 3 by memorizing dinosaur names. Can spell parasaurolophus without pausing. Is entering college in the fall to study paleontology. And after coming to the hall every month as a kid, and having that dino spigot shut off five long years ago, Stancil was ecstatic as the curtain was pulled away. “They’re such mysterious things to the human mind,” he said of the ancient creatures that are the centerpiece of the most popular exhibit in the most popular natural history museum in the world. “Finally!” Stancil was part of a carnival that played out Saturday when the museum reopened its famous dinosaur exhibit after a five-year,

$110 million renovation. “When I was little, I got into it, and I never got out,” said Noah Buck, 17, who got up at 7 a.m. and rode the Metro with his girlfriend to the opening in their matching dino full-body PJs. “When they closed, it was like: ‘Oh, no!’ I can’t believe I waited so long.” Nearly 6 million people a year came to the space that was called the Hall of Extinct Monsters when it opened in 1911, even through its last remodel in the 1980s, which was primarily to craft a large space simply highlighting the specimens and artifacts. The new exhibition, titled “David H. Koch Hall of Fossils — Deep Time,” weaves in humans throughout, presenting dinosaurs as part of a multimillion-year story that unfolds in layers. The last person to see the fossil hall in 2014 was then-4-year-old Skip Hommer, a Tysons boy who each year requested donations for his birthday — for the fossil hall — instead of gifts. The first person into the hall Saturday was the 10-year-old rising fifth-grader, who has donated $2,500 so far. Walking in, Skip grinned: “I really love dinosaurs.” MICHELLE BOORSTEIN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Panic at Pride Parade Seven hospitalized after revelers scramble following erroneous reports of gunfire


Embassies defy policies limiting Pride support


THE DISTRICT Reports that shots had been fired near the site of the Capital Pride Parade in Washington on Saturday evening sent people running in panic through the streets, according to accounts from witnesses. But Mayor Muriel Bowser said shortly afterward that despite the rumors, “there were no shots fired” at Dupont Circle. Officials later said seven people were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries apparently suffered in the panic. Police said officers were sent to the circle after a report of a man with a gun. Around that time, a loud noise was heard in the area. “As the officers were going to the scene, there was a crowd of people going away from it and some of the individuals in the crowd said there was a man with a gun and that someone had fired a shot,” Guillermo Rivera, a commander with the Metropolitan Police Department, told AP. A brief video posted on Twitter shows people rushing to leave the circle. Some climbed the metal crowd-control barriers around the perimeter. As they did, the barriers fell with a loud crash. It was not clear if the noise made by the falling barriers was taken to be the sound of gunshots. Lindsey Migliore, a physician, told The Washington Post that as she was taking part in the parade “everyone started running behind us, running and screaming,” heading away from the circle. She said she helped a woman who had apparently twisted her ankle. The incident ended the parade at about 7:20 p.m. The scheduled end time was unclear. At the circle, a man was arrested and a BB gun was found, police said.

Police responded to Dupont Circle amid reports of gunshots, though D.C.’s mayor later said no shots were fired.

Man with gun arrested A man with a BB gun angry at another man for hitting his partner allegedly set off events that led hundreds to flee the Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, D.C. police said. Police reported Sunday morning that Aftabjit Singh, 38, was arrested on weapons and disorderly conduct charges after witnesses led police to him near the fountain at the center of Dupont Circle. “I’ll be back. I’ll shoot that m***** f*****,” Singh said as he was taken away, according to a police report. (TWP) Thousands attended the parade, which ended abruptly around 7:20 p.m.

POLITICS Since the State Department began rejecting all embassy requests to hoist rainbow flags outside the mission buildings during LGBTQ Pride Month this year, some U.S. diplomats have been finding ways to defy, or at least get around, the new policy. The facades of the U.S. missions in Seoul and Chennai, India, are partially hidden behind large rainbow flags, while the embassy in New Delhi boasts rainbow lights. The website for the embassy in Santiago, Chile, shows a video of the chief diplomat raising a rainbow flag. The Vienna embassy website features a photo of a rainbow flag flying below Old Glory on the building, a statement by Diplomats for Equality and a story about a professor lecturing on LGBT rights. U.S. diplomats in Jerusalem joined a Pride march, and several ambassadors tweeted photos of themselves in local parades. “This is a category one insurrection,” said one diplomat, who like others interviewed spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of being fired. The rejections of the embassy requests were not made in writing. However, a practice routinely approved for most of the decade at many embassies now requires top-level approval from the State Department. But this year, as first reported by NBC News, all requests were nixed. CAROL MORELLO (TWP)

Jilted local author hits back THE DISTRICT Natasha Tynes, a Jordanian American writer and World Bank employee in Washington who lost a book deal following claims of online racism, is suing her publisher for $13 million. The lawsuit, filed in California on Friday, alleges that Rare Bird Books breached its contract and defamed her, causing “extreme emotional distress” and destroying her reputation. In 2018, Tynes contracted with Rare Bird to distribute her upcoming novel, “They Called Me Wyatt,” which was set for release this month until Tynes became the subject of international news. On the morning of May 10, the World Bank communications officer tweeted a photo of a black female Metro worker breaking the transportation agency’s rules by eating breakfast on a train. “When you’re on your morning commute & see @wmata employee in UNIFORM eating on the train,” Tynes tweeted. “I thought we were not allowed to eat on the train. This is unacceptable. Hope @wmata responds,” she wrote. Less than 30 minutes later,

New lawsuit alleges canceled book deal led to distress and threats

Natasha Tynes last month lost a $13 million book deal amid accusations of racism after tweeting an image of a black Metro worker eating on the train.

Tynes had deleted the post and apologized, according to court documents. But outrage had already ignited. Tynes also contacted the agency to ensure the employee would not be disciplined; the agency complied. Then, she told Rare Bird executive Robert Jason Peterson that, “having not grown up in the United States, the issue of race had not even

occurred to her when she made the tweet,” according to her filing. Peterson, it claims, told her before noon, “You’ll get through this, we’ve got your back.” Hours later, Rare Bird released a statement, calling Tynes’s tweet “something truly horrible,” and announcing that it had decided not to distribute her book. “We think this is unacceptable and have no desire to be

involved with anyone who thinks it’s acceptable to jeopardize a person’s safety and employment in this way,” the company announced on Twitter. Rare Bird did not respond to requests for comment. The lawsuit alleges that Rare Bird’s statement was defamatory. According to the complaint, Tynes “did not engage in any act of racism” and “took no action that could have possibly jeopardized anybody’s safety,” except, perhaps, her own. After the uproar, Tynes was hospitalized for “an acute anxiety reaction and suicidal ideations,” the complaint says. She was placed on administrative leave by her employer, and negative reviews poured in for the unpublished novel. Tynes began receiving online threats, the lawsuit said, and she became the subject of racial slurs, including “terrorist” and “a radical Muslim,” while others called for her deportation. Court papers also said she temporarily returned to Jordan on May 21, fearing her family “would be the subject of violence, reprisals and harassment at the hands of a mob incited by Rare Bird if she remained in the United States.” DEANNA PAUL AND LINDSEY BEVER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Extradition bill sparks fury

weekendd re win

Thousands rally against Hong Kong measure seen as eroding rights

Hillary Clinton’s brother Tony Rodham dies



HONG KONG Hundreds of thousands of protesters marched through Hong Kong on Sunday to voice their opposition to legislation that would allow people to be extradited to mainland China, where they could face politically charged trials. The massive demonstration took place three days before the semi-autonomous Chinese territory’s government plans to bring the highly contentious bill to the full legislature in a bid to win approval by the end of the month. Police estimated the crowd at 240,000, but organizers said more than 1 million took part. The protest was one of the largest in recent Hong Kong history, underscoring fears over China’s broadening footprint in the former British colony. It appeared to be even bigger than a massive pro-democracy demonstration in 2003 against a proposed national security law, according to Associated Press journalists who covered both events. Late Sunday night, a group of demonstrators broke through barriers at government headquarters, where the march had ended. The crowd briefly pushed its way into the lobby, but police used batons and pepper spray, and the protesters were moved outside. Most had dispersed by 1 a.m. People of all ages took part

in the march, some pushing strollers and others carrying canes, chanting slogans in the native Cantonese dialect in favor of greater transparency in government.

Kiwi Wong, 27, was among the throng, a member of the younger generation that has grown up enjoying relative prosperity but also growing insecurity about what many see as an erosion of

the rights Hong Kong residents have enjoyed. “If I didn’t come out now, I don’t know when I would have the chance to express my opinion again,” Wong said. “Because now we’ve got to this stage, if you don’t come out to try to do what you can, then it will end up too late, you won’t be able to say or do anything about it.” Hong Kong’s leader, Carrie Lam, has pushed forward with the legislation despite widespread criticism from human rights and business groups. The amendments have been criticized as eroding Hong Kong’s judicial independence by making it easier to send criminal suspects to mainland China, where they could face vague national security charges and unfair trials.

A tariff deal — and a warning Despite border pact, Trump warns Mexico it could still face penalty

Syrian goalie and rebel icon dies in battle


IMMIGRATION President Trump on Sunday dangled the prospect of renewing his tariff threat against Mexico if the U.S. ally doesn’t cooperate on border issues, while some of his Democratic challengers for the White House said the last-minute deal to avert trade penalties was overblown. In a series of tweets, Trump defended the agreement heading off the 5% tax on all Mexican goods that he had threatened to impose today, but he warned Mexico that “if for some unknown reason” cooperation fails, “we can always go back to our previous, very profitable, position of Tariffs.” Still, he said he didn’t believe that would be necessary. The tweets came amid questions about just how much of the deal — announced with great fanfare Friday — was really new. It included a commitment from Mexico, for instance, to deploy its new National Guard to the country’s southern border with Guatemala. Mexico, however, had already intended to do that before Trump’s latest threat and had made that clear to U.S. officials. The U.S. also hailed Mexico’s agreement to support the expansion of a program implemented earlier this year under which some asylum-seekers are

returned to Mexico as they wait out their cases. But U.S. officials had already been working to expand the program, which — even without Mexico’s public embrace — had led to the return of about 10,000 to Mexico. “The president has completely overblown what he reports to have achieved. These are agreements that Mexico had already made, in some cases months ago,” said Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, speaking on ABC’s “This Week.” ‘’They might have accelerated the timetable, but by and large the president achieved nothing except to jeopardize the most important trading relationship

insisted “all of it is new,” including the agreement to dispatch around 6,000 National Guard troops — a move Mexico has described as an “acceleration.” “This is the first time we’ve heard anything like this kind of number of law enforcement being deployed in Mexico to address migration, not just at the southern border but also on the transportation routes to the northern border and in coordinated patrols in key areas along our southwest border,” he said, adding that “people can disagree with the tactics” but that “Mexico came to the table with real proposals” that will be effective, if implemented.

SYRIA A Syrian soccer goalkeeper who became an icon of the rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad has died of wounds suffered in a battle with government forces, the rebels said Saturday. Abdelbaset Sarout, 27, rose to fame as a player for his home city of Homs and won international titles representing his country. When peaceful protests broke out against Assad in 2011, Sarout led rallies and became known as the “singer of the revolution” for his songs and ballads. Following the arc of the Syrian uprising, Sarout later took up arms as the country slid into civil war. He led a unit of fighters against government forces and survived the government siege of Homs. The government declared Sarout a traitor, banning him from soccer and offering a reward for information leading to his arrest. He remained an icon among Syria’s opposition as the rebellion came to be dominated by hard-line Islamist groups. Many activists and rebels referred to him as the “guardian of freedom.” Capt. Mustafa Maarati, the spokesman for Jaish al-Izza rebel group, in which Sarout was a commander, said he died from wounds sustained two days earlier while fighting in the northern Hama province. Maarati said Sarout was wounded in the leg, stomach and hand, and died in a hospital in Turkey. SARAH EL DEEB (AP)

Iraq will use DNA testing to identify the remains of 141 bodies found in mass graves believed to contain the Yazidi victims of ISIS massacres, the head of the country’s forensics administration said on Sunday. Zaid al-Yousef said Yazidi survivors helped to locate the 12 graves in the Sinjar region in north Iraq.

Websites of The Washington Post and the Guardian appear to now be blocked in China as its government further tightens its so-called “Great Firewall” censorship apparatus as it navigates a politically sensitive period. Internet authorities have gone into overdrive in recent weeks ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre on June 4, 1989. China’s internet censors rarely, if ever, communicate their reasoning for blocking specific websites, and it’s not clear whether the ban would be permanent. The extensive censorship software now blocks more than 10,000 Web domains. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Over 60 deaths linked to killer, prosecutor says

NASA announces plan to let private citizens fly to the International Space Station SCIENCE You’ve heard about the International Space Station for years. Want to visit? NASA announced Friday that the orbiting outpost is now open for business to private citizens, with the first visit expected to be as early as next year. There is a catch, though: You’ll need to raise your own cash, and it won’t be cheap. A roundtrip ticket likely will cost an estimated $58 million. And accommodations will run about $35,000 per night, for trips of up to 30 days long, said NASA’s chief financial officer Jeff DeWit. “It won’t come with any Hilton or Marriott points,” DeWit said. Travelers don’t have to be U.S. citizens. People from other countries will also be eligible, as long as they fly on a U.S.-operated rocket. Since the space shuttle program ended in 2011, NASA has flown astronauts to the space station aboard Russian rockets. The agency has contracted with SpaceX and Boeing to fly future crewed missions to the space station. Private citizens would have to make travel arrangements with those private companies to reach orbit.

“If a private astronaut is on station, they will have to pay us while they’re there for the life support, the food, the water, things of that nature,” DeWit added. Depending on the market, the agency will allow up to two visitors per year, for now. And the private astronauts will have to meet the same medical standards, training and certification procedures as regular crew members. The space station has welcomed tourists before by way of Russian rockets. In 2001, California businessman Dennis Tito became the first visitor by paying for a journey and several others have followed. Friday’s announcement marks the first time NASA is allowing private astronauts on board. The space agency will not be selling directly to customers. Instead it will charge private companies that ferry passengers, which can pass on the costs to visitors, NASA spokeswoman Stephanie Schierholz said in an email. The program is part of NASA’s efforts to open the station to private industries, which the agency hopes will inherit the orbiting platform someday.

Business trips to space There is a long history of businesses going to space to market their products. In 1999, Pizza Hut paid to paint its logo on a Russian rocket. In the mid-1990s, an Israeli milk company filmed a commercial on the space station Mir, and a pair of Russian cosmonauts even appeared on QVC to sell a pen able to write in a weightless environment. (TWP)

Eventually, the space station will become too expensive for the government to maintain, said Bill Gerstenmaier, a NASA associate administrator. So the idea is to let the private sector start using the station now and perhaps eventually take it over, he said. The announcement, representing a major change in policy for NASA, was soon overshadowed by a tweet from President Trump that called into question his own administration’s muchpublicized goal of returning astronauts to the moon by 2024. “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon — We did that 50 years ago,” Trump said on Twitter. “They

Kroger-owned grocery stores recalling frozen berries possibly contaminated with hepatitis A

should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!” It is unclear if Trump was unhappy with the current NASA plan or was expressing exasperation at the pace of human exploration of deep space. Trump’s confusing language about the moon being part of Mars plausibly referred to NASA’s framing of the moon plan as part of a longer-term goal of exploring Mars. The administration’s decision to send astronauts back to the moon followed a unanimous recommendation to do so by the National Space Council, chaired by Vice President Pence, in October 2017. NASA has already amended its budget request for next year to ask for an additional $1.6 billion, and has said that it would need significantly more money in the years to come to have any chance at pulling off such an ambitious plan to return humans to the moon by 2024. The agency touted the new commercial opportunities as a way to help with funding and reduce the cost to U.S. taxpayers. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)


A $58M ticket to space

CRIME A Texas prosecutor said Friday that investigators have linked more than 60 killings in at least 14 states to a 79-year-old California inmate who may be the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history. Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said Samuel Little continues to cooperate with investigators from around the country who interrogate him in prison about cold case killings dating back to the 1970s. Among those who spoke to him were investigators from Ohio, where Little grew up and is suspected of killing at least five women. Little was convicted of killing three Los Angeles-area women and pleaded guilty to killing a Texas woman, and he’s serving life sentences in California. Little, who lived a nomadic lifestyle, claims to have killed 93 women as he crisscrossed the country over the years. Bland said Little is in failing health and has exhausted his appeals, leading him to be forthcoming with investigators. “At this point in his life I think he’s determined to make sure that his victims are found,” he said. During Little’s 2014 trial in Los Angeles, prosecutors said he was likely responsible for at least 40 killings since 1980. Gary Ridgway, the so-called Green River Killer, pleaded guilty to killing 49 women and girls, making him the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history in terms of confirmed victims, though he said he killed 71.

Backed into a 3-1 corner

Hawkins’ 21 lifts Mystics over Wings

NBA FINALS Draymond Green has said it often: This run by the Warriors won’t last forever. And forever could be coming up fast. The two-time defending champions trail the Raptors 3-1 in the NBA Finals, with Game 5 tonight in Toronto. It will now take an improbable upset. It’s “important to have that pride, to have the faith in what we’re capable of,” Green said. If the Warriors stave off elimination at Scotiabank Arena, they return to Oracle Arena. Clearly, they don’t want the past two defeats to be a lasting memory in Oakland after 47 seasons. The Warriors are moving to the new Chase Center in San Francisco next season. Golden State understands the stakes, with the season on the brink following startling backto-back losses at home. The Warriors have been in such a postseason predicament before. They rallied from down 3-1 to beat Oklahoma City in the 2016 Western Conference finals

when Kevin Durant was still with the Thunder only to squander a 3-1 advantage in the finals to Cleveland. “We’ve been on the wrong side of history,” Golden State guard Shaun Livingston said. “We look to be on the right side of it now.” Stephen Curry believes his Warriors have the mindset to make this happen. “You don’t succeed the way we have over the course of these years without that mentality,” he said. “So as the second half unfolds and things aren’t going our way, we’re still fighting and trying to get over the hump. But until the final buzzer sounds and somebody gets the four wins, we still have life and have an opportunity to win.” The Raptors, for their part, realize there’s still much to be done. “It’s not over yet, so I can’t say that we’re better,” Kawhi Leonard said after a 36-point, 12-rebound performance in Friday night’s 105-92 Game 4 win. Kerr has seen many remarkable rallies and triumphs in his


With three-peat in jeopardy, Golden State must claw its way back or the title run ends

Raptors center Serge Ibaka, top, scored 20 points in 22 minutes off the bench in Game 4 against Steph Curry, bottom, and the Warriors.

Could KD play tonight? The Warriors say Kevin Durant practiced Sunday with hopes of playing in Game 5. Durant has not played since straining a calf muscle on May 8 in the Western Conference semifinals.

five years coaching the Warriors. And he is ready for another comeback, this time on basketball’s biggest stage. “You just try to win one game. That’s what we did a few years

ago against OKC. Win one game, and then you move forward,” Kerr said. Durant may depart as a free agent next month, while Klay Thompson is expected to re-sign once his contract expires. Both Thompson and Green have indicated their desires to stay with the Warriors for the long haul. DeMarcus Cousins joined Golden State for what was expected to be just one season. For now, the Warriors must focus all their energy on fighting back. That three-peat is in jeopardy. “I’ve been on the wrong side of 3-1 before,” Green said. “Why not make our own history?” JOE KAY (AP)

A reading list for women starting work


Setting yourself apart EMPLOYMENT Amber Cabral realized the importance of creating a professional brand when she was working for Walmart, one of the world’s largest employers. “Without something that felt uniquely mine or that gave you some idea of what kind of value I bring to a room, it would have been very easy to just get lost at an organization that big,” she says. “It was one of the easy ways you could take control of how people see you and how often they might invite you into a space you otherwise might not have access to.” Over six years at the company in roles where she contributed to strategies around mentoring and diversity, Cabral, 38, honed her brand and eventually harnessed it to start Cabral Co., an inclusion- and diversity-focused


Defining and honing a personal brand can help you stand out

Amber Cabral is the founder of the D.C.-area consulting firm Cabral Co.

consulting firm based in the D.C. area. “I’ve been able to take the uniqueness I identified as a part of branding myself and transition to nontraditional employment,” Cabral says. “My brand is what [my company] was built upon.” A professional brand isn’t just for wannabe Instagram influencers or YouTube stars. Anyone in any career can benefit from taking the time to be deliberate about how they want to be known

professionally. “A professional brand is understanding the value you provide and being able to authentically communicate that in a way that allows people to understand the strengths you have and when they should reach out to you to be on a project or join a team,” says Jen Dalton, CEO and founder of BrandMirror, a Northern Virginia-based brand-strategy firm. “It allows people to decide who they want to work for based

on what’s important to them and, if you’re really clear on your brand, it makes it much easier for people to reach out to you with opportunities.” You probably already have something of a professional brand, without actively working on it. “Sometimes we do things very well or naturally and we don’t realize people are coming to us for that because it just feels like who we are,” Cabral says. “If you can identify something you do well and that people come to you for, you can amplify that.” One way to do that is by harnessing the power of social media. After making sure all of your accounts are giving everyone the right professional impression of you (e.g., no boozy party pictures), see where you can strengthen your brand. Make sure your LinkedIn profile is filled out completely and find ways to thoughtfully add to the conversation in the professional space you already inhabit or CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

What should millennial women add to their reading lists as they launch their careers? Here are some resources that could prove useful when it comes to navigating sexism in the workplace. KARLA L. MILLER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In” and its catchphrase have been criticized for being relevant primarily to privileged white women in white-collar jobs, and placing the onus on individuals to overcome systemic obstacles — but the book and the advocacy group of the same name are still informative and supportive resources. Linguist Deborah Tannen’s “Talking From 9 to 5” deftly analyzes how people are conditioned to communicate — and receive communications — according to gender. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission website ( clarifies what qualifies as illegal discrimination and harassment.

want to be in. “There is a lot of noise out there in the professional world,” says Jason Patel, founder of D.C.based college and career consulting firm Transizion. “There are so many ways for someone to research you or get to know you that you need to take control of that narrative no matter how large or small it is. If you are actively trying to build it, only good things can come from it.” Ask for feedback to learn how your managers and colleagues would describe you and what they consider your strengths. Assessment tools like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and StrengthsFinder can provide additional insight. Then start

weaving those descriptors you want associated with your work into your professional brand. “Your brand is 90 percent perception — it’s what everyone else around you sees,” Dalton says. “If you’re not mindful of the words you use, other people may describe you with words you don’t want or aren’t right. Be clear on how you want people to describe you, and then speak up and use those words.” Get comfortable talking about yourself in a strategic way. You’re not bragging when you develop a strong professional brand; you’re showing the value you can bring to a team, project or workplace. “Most people err on the side of humility, which is not a good thing,” says D.C.-based branding coach Amanda Miller Littlejohn.

“I looked for ways that I could safely not conform. It makes you a little remarkable, and people will remember you.” AMBER CABRAL, founder of Cabral Co., explaining how she built a distinctive professional brand

“There’s a whole lot of stage between sharing and obnoxiously sharing, but most people don’t even step onto it. They just stay quiet in fear that saying anything makes them seem obnoxious, and then they wonder if people are perceiving them a certain way.

But how could people perceive you as anything if you’re a completely closed book?” Authenticity is important when crafting and sharing your brand. “Don’t come off as someone trying to elevate themselves by using buzzwords that ultimately communicate nothing,” Patel says. “Stick to simple, real terms; stay away from things that make people roll their eyes.” Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Maybe you do that by leveraging a particular quality or trait you have. Or maybe you adopt a signature color or some other fashion statement that people associate with you. “I looked for ways that I could safely not conform,” Cabral says. “It makes you a little remarkable, and people will remember you.”

Being unique is a good thing when it comes to your professional brand. “People try to hide the thing that makes them a little different because they want to fit in,” Miller Littlejohn says. “Don’t be afraid to lean into that. Personality a big differentiator.” It all comes down to putting your best foot forward in an accessible way and making it easy for people to understand what you stand for, and why they should want to work with you. “You want to make sure you’ve done all the right things when someone comes looking for you,” Patel says. “And if people can find you easily, you are naturally opening up that bottleneck that might be slowing down the recruitment process for you.” BETH LUBERECKI (FOR EXPRESS)

steal this job

As a livestock manager at Mount Vernon, Lisa Pregent must be ready to head into work 24/7.

A livestock manager lives to horse around Name: Lisa Pregent, 41 Position: Livestock manager at George Washington’s Mount Vernon

What she does Lisa Pregent gets the familiar call in the middle of the night: One of her charges has escaped. Again. It doesn’t matter whether it’s 11:30 p.m. or 2 a.m.; Pregent gets dressed and heads to work. “We have some very smart cows that have figured out how to get out of their pens,” she says, but fortunately, the escape artists are also easy to collect: Grab a bucket of grain, and the cattle will come. Usually. As the livestock manager at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Pregent oversees the care of more than 100 animals, including sheep, cattle, pigs, chickens, a donkey and horses, many of which are rare heritage breeds. “Basically, my job is to educate our visitors about the importance of livestock in George Washington’s time, and to bring alive his farming techniques,” she says.

“We’re also big into the preservation of rare breeds.” There are five full-time staffers on Mount Vernon’s livestock team, plus three part-timers and a couple of seasonal workers. Pregent arrives by 7:30 a.m. each day, at which point the team splits in half, either tending to the animals behind the scenes — there’s a livestock farm just out of view of the public — or in the historic area that visitors can explore. For the next hour, “We’re feeding, haying, making sure everybody has clean water,” Pregent says, as well as administering any necessary medical treatment, like shots or minor procedures. Some of the staffers, designated as animal caretakers, remain behind the scenes throughout the bulk of the day, cleaning stalls, pens and horse tacks, filling feed bins and receiving deliveries, and setting up for special events. The livestock handlers, meanwhile, spend about 80 percent of their time in colonial costume, leading events for the public.

The best time of year, Pregent says — for visitors and staffers — is lambing season. Washington had a flock of 600 to 1,000 sheep, and Mount Vernon raises the rare Hog Island breed, which is native to Virginia. Following Washington’s timeline, the rams move in with the ewes each October; the gestation period is typically five months, which means birthing starts in March. As Pregent scooped one lamb into her arms — a white-and-blackspotted 1-week-old who weighed 7 pounds — the animal started to squirm and bleat for its mother, who hovered nearby. Some of the lambs, such as those that are particularly weak, need to be bottle-fed — so the staffers take them home each night for two weeks, feeding them every two to three hours. “We load them into our cars, and we have [travel cribs] that we just roll into our living rooms or wherever, and they stay in them,” Pregent says.

“This is one of those jobs where you wake up in the morning and don’t dread going to work,” Lisa Pregent says. “It’s special and unique.”

Steal this job CONTINUED FROM PAGE 17

Each animal has a unique personality, and Pregent says she could never pick a favorite — it’d be like choosing a favorite kid. But she feels a special affinity for the sheep she once bottleraised, and for the pigs who recognize her voice when she calls to them: “They come running out, grunting and they want to be scratched,” she says, smiling at the thought. “So you scratch them and they do a high-pitched squeal and start shaking.”

How she got the job Pregent grew up about a mile from Mount Vernon and used to go fishing at the estate’s wharf after hours. She also was an enthusiastic horse rider. When she was 17, in need of a volunteer position for her high school government class, she starting grooming horses and cleaning stalls at Mount Vernon. After graduating, she headed to the University of Mary Washington, where she thought she might study journalism. She also took a historic preservation class, which proved to be a prescient choice. A year into school, she left to return to the estate full time. “I just kept going back to Mount Vernon,” she says, gesturing around the barn where she spends much of her day. “Everything kind of centered around this place.”

Who would want this job Do you prefer the company of soft, loving animals over humans? Proceed. In addition to a passion for livestock, you’ll need a strong work ethic to survive in this (literal) field; the days can be long, especially during birthing season, and you’ll be on call 24/7, every day of the year.

How you can get the job Some prior experience with horses, cattle or another type of livestock is helpful, Pregent says, but not required. While handson experience is generally most important, studying animal science, biology or equine science can be useful. One Mount Vernon staffer just finished veterinary technician schooling, and Pregent spent four years as a veterinary assistant at a local animal hospital, work she juggled in addition to her responsibilities at Mount Vernon. “You just have to have a good head on your shoulders and quick thinking, and the rest can be taught,” she says. After more than 20 years on the job, she’s convinced she’s living the dream. “This is one of those jobs where you wake up in the morning and don’t dread going to work. Some of the staff come in and say, ‘This is my getaway; I come to work to get some peace,’ ” she says. “It’s special and it’s unique.” ANGELA HAUPT (FOR EXPRESS)

Meryl Streep, right, wonders what Nicole Kidman knows about the food that she doesn’t …


1 ‘Pose’

10 p.m. Tuesday on FX

An unexpected encore


Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed series about the New York ballroom scene returns for Season 2, which jumps ahead to 1990 and confronts the devastating effect the HIV/AIDS epidemic had on the LGBTQ community.

Season 2 of ‘Big Little Lies’ isn’t perfect, but the drama can still hit the right notes TV REVIEW Meryl Streep, who has done everything, once played a woman dying stoically of cancer, who objected to the aesthetic notion that less is more. “Less is not more,” her character declared. “More is more.” That said, less can be a fine thing, especially when it comes to television. Which brings us to the doubts viewers may be having about extending the compulsively satisfying and succinct HBO drama “Big Little Lies,” which had been touted as a seven-episode “limited series” when it aired in 2017. In this case, more really can feel like more. If, however, you’re coming back to “Big Little Lies” for a wellhoned plot and the tension around

the keeping of its biggest lie, then you’ll notice some desperation in the first three episodes (which were made available for review) to prolong a story that wasn’t all that prolongable to begin with. Working forward from her best-selling novel, Liane Moriarty collaborates with showrunner David E. Kelley on a basic frame for this sequel-as-series. Jean-Marc Vallée, meanwhile, hands directing duties to Andrea Arnold. The killing and coverup that concluded Season 1 still looms over all, after Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) reflexively pushed the bad guy (Alexander Skarsgard as Perry Wright) down the stairs at a school fundraiser as he was attacking a group of women. Perry, the sadistically abusive

Scandalous subplot In Season 2, “Big Little Lies” has to paw around a bit to find more interesting crises to face. To Reese Witherspoon’s Madeline, they’ve added a marital earthquake, sending her and her husband, Ed (Adam Scott), to no-nonsense therapist Dr. Amanda Reisman (Robin Weigert), who always gets to the ugliest heart of her patients’ matters. H.S.

husband of Celeste (Nicole Kidman), had been revealed to be the man who raped Jane (Shailene Woodley), which meant he was the father of her little boy, Ziggy (Iain Armitage), who attends school with Celeste’s twin boys and also the daughters of Bonnie,

Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Renata (Laura Dern). The women all agreed to say that Perry slipped and fell. But now Streep has blown in as Mary Louise Wright, Perry’s persistently irritating mother. Kelley has given Streep every great scrap of passive-aggressive dialogue he can conjure, and she performs it like she’s in total heaven. Although “Big Little Lies” doesn’t seem entirely sure of where it’s headed, it can still work itself up into a delectably roiling state of privilege and anger. It seems likely that someone’s going to get pushed down some stairs again, metaphorically or otherwise. And isn’t that why we’re all here?

2 ‘Too Old to Die Young’ Friday on Amazon Prime

“Drive” filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn directed all 10 episodes of this atmospheric drama series’ first season, which stars Miles Teller as a police officer roped into a dark underworld of organized crime.

3 ‘Euphoria’

Zendaya stars as a 17-yearold recovering drug addict in the premiere of Sam Levinson’s drama series — adapted from an Israeli show — about troubled high school teens coming of age in modern times.



New Orleans legend Dr. John dies at 77

Dr. John, the New Orleans singer and piano player who blended black and white musical styles with a hoodoo-infused stage persona and gravelly bayou drawl, died of a heart attack Thursday at age 77, his family said. Dr. John had a Top 10 hit with “Right Place, Wrong Time,” collaborated with numerous toptier rockers, won six Grammy awards and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Pauley Perrette says she won’t return to “NCIS” because she’s “terrified” of former co-star Mark Harmon

22 | EXPRESS | 06.10.2019 | MONDAY



It’s a wistful year for Latinx TV shows. Netflix canceled its well-regarded Cuban-American remake of “One Day at a Time,” and telenovela supremo “Jane the Virgin” is finishing up its last season. But there is heartening news as well: “Vida” on Starz is back for Season 2, which kicked off last month and concludes June 23, though all 10 episodes already are available via streaming and on demand. It’s a deeply emotional tale of two

estranged Mexican American sisters, coping with the death of their mother Vidalia (nicknamed “Vida”) and the discovery that she had a secret wife. There’s also the question of what to do with the apartment building and bar Vida owned in an East L.A. neighborhood ripe for gentrification. Those kind of characters and storylines could easily translate into a soap opera or an earnest and preachy show, but showrunner Tanya Saracho, who comes from the world of theater, makes sure that doesn’t happen. The key is the way she develops the show’s characters.

THR: Russia to air own series in response to HBO’s “Chernobyl”


Another round: Renewal of ‘Vida’ was well earned

Melissa Barrera, left, and Mishel Prada play Mexican American sisters brought together after the death of their mother in the Starz series “Vida.”

They start off sounding like stereotypes but quickly reveal that they are full of contradictions and surprises. Season 2 digs even deeper

into the sisters at the heart of the show. Sexually adventurous Lyn (Melissa Barrera) appears to be a free spirit in touch with her roots. But she is also a lost

soul, struggling to establish her identity and prove to her sister that she’s a worthy partner in handling their mother’s bar. Her sibling Emma (Mishel Prada) is a lawyer in Chicago who has seemingly disowned her Mexican heritage. Emma is the dominant one, but it turns out she’s struggling with her sense of self as well. But with all these heavy issues, “Vida” also is full of great humor with a Latinx flavor. Describing the fitness program Barre, one character says, “It’s like that white girl s--- when they pretend to be ballerinas.” And unlike its sisters “One Day at a Time” and “Jane the Virgin,” “Vida” has a future: Starz recently renewed the series for a third season.

“Jessica Eye is finally up and speaking to her corner. Looked like she asked them what happened. That was really scary.” @SHAUNALSHATTI, tweeting about UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko’s brutal knockout of Jessica Eye at UFC 238 in Chicago. Shevchenko dropped Eye in the second round Saturday night with a terrifying kick to the head. Eye remained knocked out for a few minutes on the mat before regaining consciousness.

“Dobby boutta get his a-- beat for getting caught on Muggle footage.” @NI_NERS, joking about a viral home

security clip that appears to show an inhuman creature resembling the beloved “Harry Potter” house elf. The clip, originally posted to Facebook by Vivian Gomez, gained immediate traction on Twitter, as “Potter” fans joked about the video. Some fans theorized it was promo for “Wizards Unite,” an upcoming mobile game. “Muggles” refers to humans without magical powers.

Fans began attacking Curran, wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob, after video spread Wednesday of her leaning across Beyoncé to chat with JAY-Z. Enraged fans blasted Curran on social media. Beyoncé’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, has since told fans not to “spew hate” at Curran.

“No one can get in, no one can get out. The people pictured will die in this pool.”

“Future sampled Ciara’s ‘Promise’ on ‘Shotgun’ ... SOMEBODY HELP THIS MAN. He’s so hurt.”

@RUNTHISTRAIN, tweeting about a CNN report that London will be getting the “world’s first” 360-degree infinity pool. The pool is set to be on the rooftop of an upcoming 55-story building. Swimmers will be able to access the pool via a rotating spiral staircase that rises through the water.

@SYDNEIEVERETT, furthering

the rumor that rapper Future sampled ex-fiancee Ciara’s 2006 ballad “Promise” for his new song “Shotgun.” Fans noticed the 808 drum beat was eerily similar after the Friday release of Future’s “Save Me” EP. The two artists share a son together but famously split in 2014.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You may not understand fully where the road you are on will lead, but the journey is pleasant enough. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Hard work is in store, and you’ll want to be sure that you have prepared yourself, both physically and mentally. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Now is the time for you to put into motion the plan you’ve been working on for the past week or two. Your window of opportunity is very small. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Interaction with another Virgo surprises you when it reveals something you had never suspected. It’s time to deepen the relationship.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) What

you’re after is a more direct connection with someone who has recently been only on the periphery. Invite him or her in today.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21) You can do something worth remembering today, and others are sure to acknowledge the accomplishment. One individual remains a vocal critic. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You can approach an uneasy situation with much more certainty today than yesterday or the day before.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The things you and a rival have in common are far more important to you both today than any differences in the past.

TODAY: Scattered showers seem likely, but the day isn’t necessarily a washout. Temperatures should trend warmer — we’re looking at highs in the mid-70s to low 80s with light winds. Tonight, showers are likely with a few thunderstorms possible as a cold front moves through. Brief heavy downpours are possible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Someone is likely to ask you questions that you cannot immediately answer. Take the time to study both the question and the one who asked it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re not likely to get any guarantees today, but it’s very possible for you to score an important personal victory.
