NIH is studying a novel medication for rapid antidepressant response and its effect on memory & attention using neuroimaging.

NIH researchers seek currently depressed persons ages 18-55 to enroll in research studies evaluating how an FDA-approved drug, Scopolamine (for motion sickness) versus placebo can help with depression. In one study,

the drug is given intravenously over 7-sessions (inpatient or outpatient), in the other the drug is given by patch over 12 sessions (outpatient). Participants must not be taking medications for three weeks prior to starting the study.

The studies are conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and may include brain imaging and attention and memory tasks to help understand the role of some brain chemicals in depression. There is no cost to participate and travel is reimbursed. Atendemos pacientes de habla hispana.

Creflo Dollar is one of the most prominent African-American preachers based around Atlanta. He has a 30,000-member church in the Atlanta area and satellite churches across the U.S. He was arrested Friday after his 15-year-old daughter called 911 and said she and her father argued when he said she couldn’t go to a party. A police report says the girl told a deputy her father put his hands around her throat, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The deputy noted a scratch on her neck. (AP)

I knew there had to be more to the story,” said Phyllissa Wolley, 23, a daycare worker who has attended the church for about five years. “I felt like he addressed the accusations today, and I believe what he said. To hear from him personally, I really appreciated that. I was glad to hear his side of the story.” K ATE BRUMBACK (AP)

Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar denied Sunday that he punched and choked his 15-year-old daughter in an argument, telling his congregation the allegations made in a police report are nothing but “exaggeration and sensationalism.” “I will say this emphatically: I should have never been arrested,” Dollar said in his first public appearance two days after police charged him with misdemeanor counts of simple battery and cruelty to children. The pastor got an enthusiastic ovation from the packed church as he took the pulpit Sunday at the World Changers Church International in metro Atlanta. He addressed the criminal charges head-on for several minutes before moving on to his sermon. “The truth is that a family conversation with our youngest daughter got emotional,” he said. “And emotions got involved and things escalated from there.” He said the mark on his daughter’s neck had been there for about

Spain’s grinding economic misery will get worse this year, despite the country’s request for a European financial lifeline of up to $125 billion to save its banks, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Sunday. A day after the country conceded it needed outside help following months of denying it would seek assistance, Rajoy said more Spaniards will lose their jobs in a country where one out of every four are already unemployed. “This year is going to be a bad one,” Rajoy said Sunday. He added that the economy, stuck in its second recession in three years, will still contract the predicted 1.7 per-


The deterioration of Spain’s banks and the need for a rescue was threatening to bankrupt its government. That would likely cause far more pain for Europe than the smaller economies of Greece, Portugal and Ireland, which have received bailouts.



Investors need reassurance. They’re already worried about Greece’s vote on June 17, which is putting its $170 billion bailout at stake and could force Greece to exit the euro — an outcome that would raise fears that another, bigger country might be next.

A big fear is that Europe’s troubles could cross the Atlantic. Spain’s bailout eases pressure on President Obama as well as the world economy, since the U.S. and such developing countries as China and Brazil rely on Europeans to buy their exports. (AP)

cent in 2012 even with the help. Spain on Saturday became the fourth — and largest — of the 17 eurozone countries to seek a bailout, a blow to a nation that a few years ago took pride as Europe’s economic superstar only to see it become the hot spot in the crisis. Across the country, Spaniards reacted with a mixture of anger and relief to the news. “It’s obviously a shame,” said civil servant Luisa Saraguren, 44. “But this bailout was fully predictable, and the consequences of this help are going to be a lot bigger compared to the cuts we’ve been living with already.” The country is reeling from the austerity cuts Rajoy has imposed over the past six months that raised taxes, made it easier to hire and fire workers and sliced into such cherished programs as national health care.

Hollande needs leftists to take control of the lower house of parliament to carry out his plans to redirect Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. Based on Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst round, polling agencies predict that Socialists and other leftists will take a majority of the 577 seats in the National Assembly, which is currently controlled by conservatives,

in the decisive second round June 17. Early ofďŹ cial results show diminished support for former president Nicolas Sarkozyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conservative UMP party.

Intern Season has once again dawned in and around Washington, which means the region is getting an infusion of commuters unfamiliar with our local customs. Interns, welcome to Washington. The region’s subway system, known as the Metro, can be daunting for a newbie. We’re here to help. With assistance from readers, we’ve put together a guide to getting home. (MARK BERMAN) THE WASHINGTON POST




Unlike some other subways, Metro isn’t a 24-hour system. It opens at 5 a.m. on weekdays and at 7 a.m. on weekends, and it closes at midnight on Sunday through Thursday and at 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights. (The last trains might leave before the station closes, so look at the posted last train times if you’re expecting a late night.) Another difference: You have to use your farecard or SmarTrip card every time you enter or exit a station, and you pay every time you leave. Make sure to have your card ready before you get to the turnstile.

8[W]eeZfWii[d][h Let riders get off before you board a train. Don’t board a train, go through a turnstile or get off an escalator and immediately stop. We know, we know: You’re new here and you don’t know where to go. But if you stop short, everyone behind you is forced to stop, and they will not like this. Keep moving and step off to the side until you get your bearings. Give your seat to someone who is pregnant, elderly, disabled or nursing a broken limb. Don’t block the doors of a bus or train; if you need to be near the doorway because of crowding, step off at stops to let other people out, then get back on. It can be done quickly.

The train doors aren’t like elevator doors; they won’t automatically reopen if you stick your arm through. So don’t do that. And don’t block a door, because if it can’t close properly, the train could be off-loaded and everyone in the station will know it’s all your fault.

There often are planned delays because of track work. There also are lots of unexpected delays that will definitely arise when you are already running late and have an important presentation.

MWjY^oekhlWbkWXb[i If you’re using something like an iPad or iPhone and you’re sitting near the door, be careful. Someone could grab your device and dash just before the doors close. Generally be careful no matter where you’re sitting or standing, really.

De\eeZehZh_da Yes, you will see other people breaking this rule. Maybe even every time you ride. But you shouldn’t do it . We bot h k now you’re better than that.

Capital Pride, one of the largest Pride Day gatherings in the country, welcomed thousands of visitors to its event a few blocks from Capitol Hill. More than 300 vendors waved rainbow flags while participants raised awareness for nonprofit organizations, gay rights and sexual health. The festival aims to celebrate and embrace being part of the LGBT community, and the scorching heat did not deter participants who moved among the booths and displays. The festival comes after a tumultuous but triumphant few months for the LGBT community, including the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy being overturned, President Obama’s recent open support for same-sex marriage and Maryland’s passage of a law allowing same-sex marriage. But groups in Maryland have been collecting signatures to

Some Unions Merit Aid From Va. Republicans have been emphatic and victorious recently in cutting unions out of tax-supported projects, arguing that they drive up costs. But there are some exceptions. One day after Republican Gov. Robert McDonnell forced a major Virginia transit project to back off a union-friendly labor agreement, he gleefully trumpeted $4 million in state incentives for the NFL’s allunion Washington Redskins. Before that, he had approved state incentives totaling $3.5 million for Steven Spielberg’s heavily unionized production of “Lincoln,” filmed in Richmond last fall. McDonnell says both are eco-

and season ticket holder — believes McDonnell got snookered. “The Redskins have been and will be a very profitable business. The chances that they were leaving Loudoun County were zero,” he said. McDonnell defends the football and movie enticements as economic development projects that repay initial investments many times over. The $6 billion project to extend the Silver Line to Dulles International Airport, he said, is a much different proposition. “What we can’t do is drive up the cost of a project that’s already about the most expensive public works project in the country — $250 million a mile.” McDonnell said.

How much will I need?

Invest in Yourself

Calculate how much retirement savings you’ll realistically need MWdjjej[hh_\ooekhi[b\" carefree 20-something? Divide 1 million by 40 — the number of years until retirement — and you’ll see a nice round 25,000. That’s how much, in dollars, you’d need to save each year if you were stuffing money under a mattress to save your $1 million retirement nest egg. Thankfully, this is not how you save for retirement. “The calculation of ‘I need $1 million dollars by 65, so I’ll divide by 40 ... is dramatically off,” said Antwone Harris, a certified financial planner with Charles Schwab in the District. “It’s not accounting for compounding interest or rates of return.” But those compounding interest rates mean one

complicated thing: You must invest your savings as soon as possible. Why? According to Ameriprise Financial, waiting even one year can have dramatic effects. If you invest $5,000 every year beginning at age 30 instead of 31, you will have $109,000 in additional savings, assuming an 8 percent compounded annual interest rate. So how much should you invest? And how important is it to start investing every spare penny you make in your 20s? Too many factors go into the calculation to generalize, so we used CNN Money and Charles Schwab Money-wise retirement calculators to get ballpark figures of what you should be saving.

Swapping Careers Smoothly 9Wh[[h9eWY^ Have you ever seen a job posting that looks like a great opportunity … if only you met the qualifications? It may not be exactly what you “do,” but don’t let fear, a lack of confidence or the perception that you don’t possess the correct combination of necessary skills prevent you from applying for a position you think you would love. Here are steps you can take to give yourself the confidence to move forward and apply: Do your research. Learn as much as you possibly can in the time you have about the position and the organization. Talk to others in the field. Ask about the compet it ive la ndscape a nd best practices. This will help you get a clear idea of the position and the skills it will require. Seek out honest feedback. If you haven’t already, seek out people you trust and ask them to honestly and critically assess you, ideally multiple people. Ask them to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. Be sure they are willing to be very honest. Weigh the advice. Take the feedback you received and determine if your strengths and weaknesses align with the opportunity. Use the advice to improve. Find transferable skills. Take a hard look at your experience. Determine how what you’ve done in your career has prepared you for this opportunity. Seek input from a successful leader in the field you are pursuing. Go for it! If you’ve done your homework and really prepared, you have little to lose. Even if you don’t get the position, people will now perceive you as a contender. They will see you in a positive light. You still have your job, and you’ve likely opened some new doors.

‘Culture of Corruption’ MWi^_d]jed Four years ago, as Mayor Adrian Fenty faced an increasingly disaffected electorate, a trio of D.C. Council members began positioning themselves for greater power. One would ride Fenty’s troubles to become the city’s next mayor. Another would rise to capture the council chairmanship. A third would assume more influence over the District’s economic development projects with an eye on citywide office himself. Vincent Gray, Kwame Brown and Harry Thomas Jr. were viewed by their supporters as homegrown heirs to the best parts of former mayor Marion Barry’s legacy. They were African American Democrats who understood the city’s complex racial history and hoped to shape its future. They would redeem a generation of black political leadership tainted by Barry’s personal foibles and fiscal mismanagement. Instead, the men have plunged the District into a new round of crisis, triggering reminders of the worst aspects of the Barry era and fears that the city’s political culture is regressing. Last week, Brown resigned the council chairmanship before admitting to bank fraud and a campaignfinance violation. Thomas relin-

quished his seat in January and is on his way to jail for embezzling $353,500 in taxpayer funds. Federal investigators have secured guilty pleas from two Gray campaign aides on felony charges that include destroying records. The probe is ongoing; Gray, who ran for office with the slogan “Character, Integrity, Leadership,” has denied wrongdoing. “Politicians will say there’s a culture of corruption, and often people say it’s rhetoric,” said Bryan Weaver, a Democratic activist. “But when it comes to D.C., there’s a culture of corruption that really exists. What gets passed off as politics as usual are huge ethical lapses.” Yet for all the familiar talk of


The downfall of Harry Thomas Jr. and Kwame Brown might represent the chance for generational change in D.C. politics. Marion Barry, 76 and beginning his third council term, is approaching the end of his political career. But who will take their places? Because of its nonstate status, the District has been viewed as a political dead end. Even if a candidate makes it to the council, or the mayor’s office, the horizon after that does not include a governor’s job or a U.S. Senate seat. As a result, party leaders have struggled to draw talent. (T WP) malfeasance engulfing the D.C. government, Washington is far different from when Barry presided. Under Barry, whose rise from modest roots to the mayoralty crystallized the aspirations of African Americans, blacks obtained city jobs and contracts that had long been the domain of whites.

Legions of black youngsters got work through Barry’s summer jobs program, winning him the loyalty of a generation of District natives. White Democrats embraced Barry as well, at least in his early years, as a symbol of racial progress. Now, with the waves of affluent newcomers who have moved to the


District, “many people in this town do not rely on the government,” said former council member William Lightfoot. “Their personal daily lives are not affected.” The current investigations are distinct from those that defined the District during the 1980s and early 1990s. Fourteen Barry administration officials were convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes stemming from official duties.

Thomas pleaded guilty in January on two felony counts — one of embezzling $353,500 of public funds via a nonprofit youth program he controlled from May 2007 to August 2009, and a second count of not reporting $346,000 on his 2007, 2008 and 2009 tax returns.

The former D.C. Council chairman resigned and pleaded guilty to bank fraud Friday after being charged in federal court for falsifying bank records to obtain a home-equity loan and boat. He was also charged with and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor use of 2008 campaign funds. He will be sentenced in September.

Yet what caught the world’s attention was the FBI surveillance tape capturing Barry smoking crack, a crime for which he was convicted of a single misdemeanor drug-possession charge. In recent years, investigators have questioned or probed spending by seven council members. The current investigations concern a “breach of public trust,” said Anita Bonds, who chairs the D.C. Democratic Party. Barry’s troubles, she said, centered on personal weakness. Now, she said, “We’re disappointed, and we’re disappointed in a different way. “People thought they had made the best choices, and people were pleased with those choices,” Bonds added. “Whenever things don’t work out the way you envisioned it, you can second-guess yourself.” PAUL S CH WA RT ZM A N A ND MIK E DEB ONI S (THE WASHINGTON POST )

During the at-bat, Boston manager Bobby Valentine stormed out of the dugout to argue a strike and was quickly ejected by home plate umpire Alan Porter. But when the Nationals needed a run, they turned to Harper. He came to the plate with one out and the bases empty, and Aceves gave Harper nothing. He started him with three straight curveballs, only one of them of a strike, and that one barely over the inside corner. Harper spit on a low fastball and then took another fastball for ball four.

Clash of Titans Ends With Draw Spain, Italy open tourney with multiple blown opportunities

Rain Ruins Final Match At French J[dd_i Whoever is going to make history at the French Open will have to wait at least one more day. The final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was called for the day because of rain Sunday with Nadal clinging to a 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 1-2 lead. Nadal, going for his record seventh French Open title, and Djokovic, trying to become the first man in 43 years to win four straight major titles, played under a light drizzle for much of the match, which also included a 34-minute interruption in the second set. Not long after they returned after the first delay, the rain started again. Court Philippe-Chatrier kept absorbing more water, but the players had to beat the mushy mess of waterlogged clay out of their shoes on virtually every point. As he was preparing to serve down 2-0 in the fourth set, Nadal took one of the saturated tennis balls and tossed it toward the chair umpire. Nadal, who had lost the previous eight games, won his serve. But on the changeover, play was called and the rain kept coming into the evening. EDDIE PELLS (AP)

Only the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs came back in a best-of-seven finals and won. Three years later, the Detroit Red Wings rallied from a 3-0 deficit to tie the series, but they lost Game 7 to Toronto. Those were the only other two teams to come back from 0-3 to force a Game 6 until the Devils. “It’s a difficult thing to get yourself ready for games like that,” Devils goalie Martin Brodeur said. “Now it’s been two (must-win) in a row.

People have finally come around to what I think is TV’s finest current show. The universal acclaim gets here just in time to see “Breaking Bad” off: This summer’s eight episodes will set us up for methmaker Walter White’s treacherous journey into the Albuquerque sunset when the series ends next year.



Moonrise Kingdom


Cedric the &,$(& Entertainer stars in this “Hot in Cleveland” spin-off as a reverend who used to be a Barry White-style singer of sexy R&B hits.




This new HBO drama from “The >8E &,$(* West Wing’s” Aaron Sorkin (about a news anchor’s angry epiphany about the state of things in America) is this summer’s only real big kahuna, as far as hype and anticipation goes. Sadly, the pilot is so chock-full of Sorkin-esque speechifying dialogue that it immediately feels like an uphill climb. Jeff Daniels stars.

“Political Animals” This sixepisode miniseries, from the guy behind the clever but soon-forgotten “Jack and Bobby,” stars Sigourney Weaver as a former first lady who unsuccessfully ran for president and is now the secretary of state. Begins July 15 on USA


Charlie Sheen’s return to <N &,$(. sitcomville in a show that’s based on the premise of a Jack Nicholson movie, aided by the vernacular freedom that only cable can bring. No one’s seen it yet, but all eyes will be on it — for reasons that still baffle me.


“Twenty Twelve” I don’t have the time or the energy to watch much of London’s Olympics, but I am rooting for this British mockumentary that stars “Downton Abbey’s” Hugh Bonneville as the head of a logistics team assigned to solve the mix-ups that come with hosting the Summer Games.

It’s a crime procedural based on a series of novels, but this drama about a depressed yet valorous sheriff (Robert Taylor) in rural Wyoming has a much slower pace and different feel from its usual summer-sleuth cohort. I was struck by the quietude of the first episode (which aired June 3) and Taylor’s nuanced performance, so I’m willing to see where the show leads us. 7;

She got her MBA while working in a lab and went on to help start the first oncology business at Baxter Healthcare and establish strategic partnerships at Beckman Coulter. What strengths did you discover early on?

I’m a very strategic thinker. I have a talent for seeing an opportunity and being able to realize that opportunity. I was in a number of strategic roles over my career at Baxter

where I was able to determine which programs were going to deliver the best value for the company. Such as?

I was asked to create an oncology business for the company. We really didn’t have a strong view on how to do that. There was belief by some in the company that we had a few products that were used to treat oncology patients and that maybe we should just put those products together and create a business around that. That didn’t resonate with me because when you market products to clinicians, you really need something that is going to grab their attention. I was really convinced that we needed to go out and do an acquisition and bring in a set of products that were commercially acceptable and allow us to have a real meaningful conversation with oncologists.

Z[fj^"WdZdej`kij ^Wl[cWZ[Wbeje\ gk_Yacel[ij^hek]^ j^[_hYWh[[h$È What do you look for in a team?

I’ve seen people who surround themselves with people who are just like themselves, and that can really be a pitfall. A lot of people speak well and manage up well. But it’s really being able to ascertain whether someone has the experience or the capability to do the job.

How has your leadership evolved?

I enjoy working in diverse teams with people who have different backgrounds that are willing to challenge the status quo and challenge me. Having said that, I’m not a consensus manager. I can be very decisive. And I can move pretty quickly, but I will always ask my team for their input.

What’s the key to that?

Assessing talent is one of the hardest things that any one of us do. I try to look for subject-matter experts and not so much generalists. In most cases, I’m looking for people that have the depth, and not just have made a lot of quick moves through their career. VANESSA SMALL (THE WASHINGTON POST )

who are flexible, who are nimble in dea ling w it h unex pected situations,” says Sara Dumont, director of AU Abroad, American University’s study-abroad office ( “They want to see people who are able to get along with others who are different from themselves, who can work in groups and analyze situations and deal with them. Students get all of these things when they study abroad.” Pazoles now works at a political consulting firm in D.C., where she draws upon her international experience every day. “It has definitely given me a leg up,” she says.

while she was an undergraduate at Cornell University. So when it came time for graduate school, a program with an option to spend time in another country was a must: “I’ve traveled a bit internationally, but I never really had the experience of immersing myself in another culture. “My friends who studied abroad had really great stories and memories, and I felt like I had missed out on an awesome experience that would contribute to my evolution as a person,” says Pazoles, 28. So while getting her master’s in Middle East studies at George Washington University (Gwu. edu), Pazoles spent a semester in

Beirut, followed by a summer in Damascus, Syria. “It was good to learn more about the cultures I was studying just by being around people, getting their views of current events and politics, and talking to them about their beliefs and what they wanted for their country. You can’t get that from a book,” she says.

The experience also helped Pazoles grow personally. “I got to be really good at just going with the flow; you never really know what you’re going to come across when trying to find a house in Damascus,” she says. Study ing abroad can be a transformative experience for any student, but it can have more of an impact on grad students, who are more focused academically, than on undergraduates, who might pick a program in London or Paris simply because they’ve always wanted to visit that city. “Graduate students are more self-aware and self-directed,” says Tanith Fowler Corsi, assistant vice

president for global education at the Catholic University of America ( “If they’re making time in their academic career to go overseas, they’re much more appreciative of the experience and really focus on getting the most of out it.” Graduate-level students in particular can develop specific skills that wind up benefiting their careers. “If someone has that extra advantage of studying overseas, their résumé will definitely be on the top of the pile,” says Corsi. She says that’s even truer in competitive job markets like D.C. “Employers like to see people

It’s also made it easier for her to learn about other cultures quickly when she’s traveling for work. “When we go to work in a new country, I’m really excited to learn about not just the facts and demographics but what the customs are, what’s considered rude and polite in that country. It’s important to be sensitive to things like that, and my time abroad made me more sensitive.” Bennet Voorhees majored in economics and Chinese while an undergraduate at the University of Oregon. He wanted to strengthen his understanding of both subject areas, so he went to China through Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced Studies (SAIS) ( He earned a master’s in international studies from SAIS’s Center for Chinese and American Studies (, which is jointly run by Johns Hopkins and Nanjing University.

Classes were taught in Mandarin, and Voorhees even had to write his thesis in the language. “I had to deal with a whole other way of getting work done,” says Voorhees, 25. “When you have to think about something analytically in another language, you just develop another kind of thought process,” he says. Voorhees uses the skills he gained studying in China in his job at an international finance

and development agency in D.C. Studying abroad “taught me what resourceful means, which really helps me with my job now, where I’m dealing with a lot of different data sets and people from different cultures all of the time,” he says. For students who want to work in a field with any kind of international reach, actually spending time in another country offers a chance to speak with authority about other cultures. “If you’ve never left this country and you’re pretending to be an expert on things that are international,

your argument doesn’t bear quite as much weight as if you can point to some experience living abroad,” says Bonnie Wilson, associate dean at SAIS. “I wanted to focus on international security and development, so it seemed like a no-brainer,” says Megan Nathan, 26, who earned her master’s degree in government with a specialization in counterterrorism and homeland security from the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel (, and now works for the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. “Israel has

economy. “W hatever k ind of bu si ne ss you’re i n, it ha s a global element to it now,” says Dumont. “Even if you’re working for an organization or business t hat doesn’t work oversea s, you’re going to be dealing with a diverse population here in the United States, people who speak different languages and come from different cultural backgrounds.

Chinese-language charter schools when I was growing up in Rhode Island in the ’80s. My family may have come from Russia a century ago, but I heard nary a “do svidanya” from my parents. So how on earth did I learn Russian, French, Chinese and enough Kazakh to translate the news? I ran press conferences in Russian, located lost luggage in Chinese and read Guy de Maupassant in French. There are people out there who speak all of these languages better than I do, but I learned them all — without shortcuts. It wasn’t easy. But, to quote Stephen Colbert: I am America, and so can you. That is to say, I was born and bred in the U.S.A., yet I figured it out – and have some suggestions for you (or



for your precocious toddler). Follow these easy steps to get on the fast track to Polyglot City.

CWa[j^[Yecc_jc[dj$ You didn’t think you could make the varsity basketball team without shooting hundreds of layups, right? As with any skill, languages need to be practiced and honed. You probably won’t be able to put in that kind of practice unless your heart is really in it. Pick a language

you love and are motivated to keep studying. I made the commitment to learn Russian when I was reading Nikolai Gogol as a college freshman and with typical undergraduate intensity decided I simply had to understand the tragic Russian soul. If you’re not dreaming of reading Tolstoy in the original, whispering sweet nothings to a Parisian demoiselle, or starting the next Google in Shanghai, it may be time to re-evaluate whether you really want to learn that language, or whether it’s just another halfhearted New Year’s resolution.

JWa[W^WhZYbWiim_j^ bejie\]hWccWh$ Maybe James Bond can arrive in Montenegro and be fluent in SerboCroatian within minutes. In the real world, you can only learn to speak a language well if you learn how it’s built. Words are the bricks, and grammar is the mortar. Without solid grammatical skills, you will lose a lot of native-speaking friends whose patience is tested to the breaking point. Trust me, I know: I barely survived making inadvertent sexual innuendo to my host mother in Moscow when I used the wrong form of the verb “to end.”

Take a hard class that really teaches you grammar. If you’re not learning declensions and verb conjugations in your first weeks of Foreign Language 101, you’re wasting your time. Troops go to boot camp before they deploy. It’s the same deal for languages, except instead of ammo magazines, you’ll need boxes of notecards for vocabulary and verb tenses. If you’re not doing homework and drilling vocabulary nearly every day, you will have a hard time making steady progress. Build at least a few minutes of study into your daily routine. The Metro is a great place to flip through your vocab notecards.

Ef[doekhcekj^$ In all the language programs I’ve ever been part of — and I’ve

sampled quite a few — having the opportunity and gumption to speak regularly is critical. If you aren’t speaking in class, it’s like reading “Juggling for Dummies” without picking up any balls. Force yourself. Not only does speaking give you practice for the real thing, it reinforces the knowledge that you have just acquired, cementing it in your brain. And keep in mind that when your luggage is lost in an airport in remote southwest China, you won’t get it back by telepathy. Trust me — I’ve tried. Now there are even foreignlanguage practice websites and channels on YouTube that let you practice speaking, so you can interact and get feedback on your oral skills wherever you are.

Stone equivalent). Now what? Time to test your mettle in reallife situations: Do you know how to ask whether a store in China has shampoo? Or what to say to the customs agent who frisks you at the Russian border? For that kind of fluency, you need in-count r y immersion, preferably at least four to six months. If you’re a student, a semester or year abroad is ideal. If you’re gainfully employed,

there are other options. Take a twoweek studycation at a language institute in a warm-weather area of your desired country. Go between jobs.

=[jW`eX$ A f t er d at i ng, t he ne x t b e s t thing for learning a language is getting a job that requires using it. There’s nothing that concentrates the mind like an assignment with no shortcuts.

While studying in Moscow in 2000, I took an internship that required me to cold-call people in Russian. I’ve never looked at a phone with so much horror before or since. (I was comforted to discover the guy who answered the phone at the Korean Embassy had a worse accent in Russian than I did.) I was constantly forced to be on my game. Sure enough, within a couple of years I was giving press conferences in confident Russian. Bonus: Professional-level lan-

guage skills are a huge leg up in a tough job market.

:edÊjbei[_j$ Some people can go years without practice and pick up where they left off. Not so for others of us, and certainly not for languages that aren’t deeply ingrained. I haven’t spoken Kazakh since 2007, and it’s virtually gone. Solution: Return to Step No. 1. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Depressing? Si, un poco. But not letting all your hard work slip away is critical, and perhaps the

hardest part of all. My advice: Call your old friends abroad regularly, meet native speakers at home, watch movies, listen to foreign music and read the literature. My wife, Hannah, calls me an overscheduled child for all my language activities: Chinese class on Wednesdays, Russian happy hour on Thursdays, and on and on.

Ekji_Z[j^[CW_dijh[Wc Water-quality science requires a love of nature — and of words

a master’s in zoology and a Ph.D. in ecology, then took a postdoctoral position in the geography department at the University of Georgia, studying with a guy who worked on “fluvial geomorphology” — how rivers affect the life in and around them. The intersection of all those fields plus his passion pretty much sealed the deal.

is in “bioassessment” — counting the types and numbers of fish and insects in a stream to determine how healthy the stream is. A healthy stream has clean water and the right naturally occurring chemical balance so fish and wildlife can thrive. Insects serve as a useful yardstick for measuring stream quality, because they are often the first animals to be affected by pollution — so the kinds and numbers of bugs in the water can indicate how polluted a stream is. Paul’s data helps states set legal limits for nutrient runoff in streams. When fertilizer runoff from lawns or farms enters a stream, algae take over and choke the stream, creating a “dead zone.” It sounds like a fiddly topic, but “a lot of lawsuits” have been filed over states’ failure to set nutrient runoff limits, Paul says.

>em>[=ejJ^_i@eX0Paul got a Bachelor of Arts degree (instead of a more focused Bachelor of Science degree) in biology at Colgate University in New York, “which I’m really happy about. The B.A. degree meant I had to learn how to write and communicate.” He followed up with

Doing it for a living: even better. After 11 years at Tetra Tech, he does less fieldwork than he’d like. “I spend almost all my time in front of a computer looking at data, reading and writing,” he says. But the work is rewarding, and Paul says the field tends to attract a laid-back personality type. “Smart people that are fun to hang out with make life pretty enjoyable,” he says. “Continuously being challenged is great. Water-quality work is not rocket science — it’s harder than rocket science.”

>emOek9Wd=[jJ^_i@eX0 If getting as much higher education as Paul did fills you with dread, fear not — most of Paul’s colleagues have master’s degrees only. Having a firm grasp of science is important, but more important, he says, is being able to write about and talk about your work. “It’s one of those things schools don’t really teach all that well, but when you go into a consulting track in environmental science, it’s a skill that differentiates some performers from others.” RACHEL KAUFMAN (FOR EXPRESS)

?dj[hd_d]Fe_dji Author Lauren Berger helps students make connections that count 9Wh[[h

Why are internships important?

The most important parts of an internship are: one, the handson experience the student gets, and two, the networking. When it comes to the hands-on experience, if you were the employer, who would you choose? The student with professional workplace experience or the student without? There’s a lot less risk involved if you’re choosing t he st udent w it h inter nship experience on their résumé. When it comes to the networking, you never, never know where these relationships can take you. People you meet at your internships can really play a pivotal role in your career for the rest of your life. What’s the first step to finding an internship?

Establish your experience level. If you’ve had no experience, you are going to want to apply to a variety of businesses. You can

THE KEY EXPERIENCE PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY TO: • increase leadership competencies • learn collaboratively • work with leading scholar/practitioners • learn from a cohort of high-performing peers • increase your knowledge of public administration and policy

With 15 internships under her belt, Lauren Berger could write the book on interning. So she did. “All Work, No Pay” ($12.99, Ten Speed Press) is Berger’s 208-page guide to figuring out where you should intern, how to get the gig and what to do once you’re in. Originally headed toward a career in business communications, the 2006 graduate of the University of Central Florida decided to share her interning k nowledge v ia her website, The book is more than just posts from the blog, adding sample résumés, cover letters and schedule organizers.

Lauren Berger did 15 internships in college. She says that was about 13 too many.

ÇEd[e\j^[ceij _cfehjWdjfWhji _i`kij_cc[hi_d] oekhi[b\_dW fhe\[ii_edWb [dl_hedc[djWdZ X[_d]WhekdZ fhe\[ii_edWbi$ OekZ[Wbm_j^W YedÔ_Yj_dj^[ mehafbWY[ckY^ Z_ú[h[djboj^Wd oekZ[Wbm_j^W YedÔ_Yjm_j^oekh \h_[dZi$È

always think big and go after that dream company when you’ve had no experience, but you also want to be practical and realistic. Is it better to do lots of internships or stick with one place?

No one needs 15 internships like I had. I suggest that every college student have two internships on t heir résumé before t hey graduate. What’s the most common mistake people make when applying?

The biggest mistake I see is that students get lazy and their cover letters are addressed to the wrong people, there are spelling errors. Continued on page E12

We had a student spell her email address incorrectly the other day on a rĂŠsumĂŠ.

What can you learn during an internship that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn in a classroom or from a textbook?

One of the most important parts is just immersing yourself in a professional environment and being around professionals. You deal with a conflict in the workplace much differently than you deal with a conflict with your friends. How can social media help you land an internship?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to identify your target employers. Find out which ones of them have a Twitter profile. Most of them will. Find out which one is maintaining a Facebook page and

start interacting with them. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a stalker, but once every few weeks, comment on the Facebook wall. How do you stay in touch with your boss after the internship?

Get in touch three times a year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to stay fresh in these employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; minds and to get in the habit of not only emailing them when you need something. STEPHANIE K ANOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

An attendee plays a video game using Nintendo’s Wii U controller at the Entertainment Expo 2012 on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

:_l_Z[Z7jj[dj_ed Video game makers show off multiscreen action at 2012 expo L_Z[e=Wc[i If the gaming industry agreed on one idea at this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, it’s that playing video games on just one screen is no longer enough. The top three publishers — Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony — each focused on new ways to spread games and other content across several screens at the gaming industry’s annual trade show in L.A. While the publishers’ systems

rely on the same premise, namely using more screens to access more content, each is achieving multiscreen functionality through different means: Microsoft is tapping into existing phones and tablets, Sony is depending on its PlayStation Vita handheld device, and Nintendo is


coupling an iPad-like controller with its new Wii U console. Microsoft Corp. unveiled software called Xbox SmartGlass that will allow Xbox 360 users to stream content to their smartphones, tablets and PCs. Sony Corp. continued to build upon the “cross-play” functionality of its PlayStation 3 console and high-definition Vita handheld device. Nintendo Co. is taking a decidedly different route. The company unleashed several games at E3 for its new Wii U console, which uses a 6.2-inch touch-screen controller to provide different perspectives. DERRIK J. L ANG AND RYAN PEARSON (AP)

7kj^ehG7 Those familiar with Augusten Burroughs’ books (“Running With Scissors,” “Dry,” and “A Wolf at the Table”) know he’s experienced more in his 46 years than most people. His mother essentially gave him to her seemingly crazy psychiatrist, and he had an affair with a man in his 30s when he was in his early teens. His father terrified him, he battled alcoholism and lost a loved one to complications from HIV. He writes about this with honesty, detail, humor. In his latest book, “This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike,” he takes what he’s learned from his eccentric past and shares it with readers so they hopefully can work through their own problems.




Burroughs challenges the notion of self-help with his ‘This Is How’

Augusten Burroughs demonstrates How to Feel Like Crap in “This Is How.”

Why did you write this book?

For as long as I’ve been an author, strangers will share the most intimate details of their life with me. But I find that rather than making me feel uncomfortable or awkward, I love it. I’ve kind of been this way since I was very young with respect to other people’s problems or issues, I’ve always had a way to zero in on what’s the real issue. What topics do you address?

I range from being suicidal to dieting to losing a child. There are some things in life you’re not gonna heal from, you know? You can be full of holes like Swiss cheese and your life can go on and the best moments from your life can be ahead of you. ALICIA R ANCILIO (AP)

We picked out a ring and I proposed properly on a boat ride on the Potomac.” WHEN THEY KNEW: Hannah: “When we survived a 23-hour road trip to Fort Hood, I knew we could accomplish anything together.” Daniel: “When she bought me my cat. He’s the most awesome cat in the world.”

“It’s my first time at Bonnaroo, and so far, I wouldn’t change anything for the world. I’ve been hit in the head twice (once by a Frisbee, the other time by a young man on a lot of drugs in a banana costume); I haven’t eaten a vegetable since we flew to Nashville.” — RYA BACKER AT NEWSROOM. MTV.COM had a great time at the four-day, multistage camping and music festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn.

“During her run for the presidency, Michelle Bachmann terrified us all on a regular basis. So perhaps it should not come as a surprise that ‘True Blood’ creator Alan Ball took inspiration from her for the upcoming season of the show.” — CASSIE MURDOCH AT JEZEBEL.COM reacts to Ball’s comments in a recent interview — ahead of the show’s Season 5 premiere Sunday night on HBO — in which he said, “My first instinct about going into religion and politics was from watching Michele Bachmann, who thinks she has a direct line to God.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can be a little sneaky today and get away with a great deal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but take care you are not pushing the boundaries too far. CANCER (June 21-July 22) What you see in another is likely to inspire you to perform better throughout the day. You may well discover a whole new interest to pursue. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Unusual behavior is sure to attract attention today â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but is that what you want? It may be time for you to lie low and avoid detection. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Are you fully invested in what is going on around you? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a chance to pull in some major green â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to work harder. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Trust your instincts today and stick to what you know. Any time you are pulled away from your primary activities, it can prove hazardous.

Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Solution

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You have been doing a great deal undercover lately, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to step out and enjoy your turn in the spotlight. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to share an important personal discovery with those who have been by your side through thick and thin. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold out on them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) One or two dreams may stay with you throughout the day, giving you messages in piecemeal fashion, a fragment at a time.

Today: #"%$" !!#  "# !" """

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) What happened in the recent past is likely to be far more important to you today than it was when it first occurred. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Pay close attention to trends today. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll understand with greater clarity what you are supposed to be doing in the days ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving at a quicker pace than anyone may have expected â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including you! Take care to avoid careless mistakes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You can overcome the discomfort caused by having to do something for which you are unsuited â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it will take cleverness.
