We Now Return to Same-Old Kind of TV Supreme Court rules for broadcasters in fight with Aereo
Meanwhile … a Key Privacy Ruling The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that police generally must obtain a warrant before searching the cellphone of someone they arrest, saying it was applying to modern technology the same rights that date back to the nation’s birth. Modern cellphones “hold for many Americans the privacies of life,” Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., left, wrote, in a sweeping opinion that seemed to contain warnings about the government’s ability to monitor the private lives of its citizens. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Washington The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a startup Internet company has to pay broadcasters when it takes television programs from the airwaves and allows subscribers to watch them on smartphones and other portable devices. The justices said by a 6-3 vote that Aereo Inc. is violating the broadcasters’ copyrights by taking the signals for free. The ruling preserves the ability of the televi-
sion networks to collect huge fees from cable and satellite systems that transmit their programming. Had services such as Aereo been allowed to operate without paying for the programming, more people
might have ditched their cable services, meaning broadcasters would have been able to charge less for the right to transmit their programs. Aereo looks a lot like a cable system, Justice Stephen Breyer wrote
for the court in rejecting the company’s attempts to distinguish itself from cable and satellite TV. “Aereo’s system is, for all practical purposes, identical to a cable system,” he said. Aereo is available in New York, Boston, Houston and Atlanta among 11 metropolitan areas and uses thousands of dime-size antennas to capture television signals and transmit them to subscribers who pay as little as $8 a month for the service. Because each subscriber is temporarily assigned an individual antenna, Aereo had made the case that it wasn’t like a cable company and wasn’t doing anything customers couldn’t do on their own at home. Breyer seemed to suggest the
company was too-cute-by-half as he announced the opinion. He laid out the company’s argument that its tiny antennae don’t really transmit to the public and then said, “Hmmm,” followed by a long pause. Then he added: “Well, we think that this argument makes too ﬁne a point.” Company executives and prominent investor Barry Diller have said their business model would not survive a loss at the Supreme Court. Aereo chief executive Chet Kanojia called the decision “a massive setback for the American consumer” and said the company would continue to ﬁght, without being speciﬁc. MARK SHERMAN (AP)

Boehner to Sue Obama Over Executive Orders

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Wednesday that he intended to initiate a federal lawsuit seeking to declare President Barack Obama’s executive orders as an unconstitutional power grab by one branch of the government. Republicans have argued that the president does not have the authority to issue such orders. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Primary Winners, Losers
Voters in seven states cast ballots Tuesday, one of the busiest days of the primary season. Sen. Thad Cochran’s win over tea party rival Chris McDaniel dominated the news, but there were plenty of other interesting races. Here are some less-obvious winners and losers. CHRIS CILLIZZ A (THE WASHINGTON POST ) WINNERS Black Mississippians: Sen. Thad Cochran won the GOP primary runoff for a variety of reasons but the big one seems to be the number of black votes he collected. African-American voters now, presumably, have a chit to call in with the incumbent some time down the line. Rep. Charles Rangel: He did it again. Rangel, the 22-term New York Democratic congressman, beat back his third straight serious primary challenge.
LOSERS (With all precincts reporting, he was ahead by about 2,000 votes.) He is expected to coast to re-election in November. Mitt Romney: Dude is now 10-0 in contested primaries in 2014. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee successfully backed former Rep. Bob Beauprez for governor in Colorado and Elise Stefanik, a former congressional aide who won the GOP primary for an open New York House seat.
Chris McDaniel: Yes, McDaniel is an obvious loser because, well, he lost. But what earned him a spot on the loser list was his bizarre and decidedly ungracious “concession” speech Tuesday. (He has vowed to challenge the results.) Travis Childers: The former Democratic congressman’s entire path to victory in the Mississippi Senate primary race was premised on the idea that McDaniel was going to be
the Republican nominee. Whoops! Now Childers is stuck in a race for the next five months against an incumbent in a state that strongly favors Republicans. National Republicans: No one would say it publicly but GOP leaders would have loved to see state House Speaker T.W. Shannon make it through the GOP primary in Oklahoma, adding a second black Republican to the Senate. His defeat is a missed opportunity.

Denver A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that states must allow gay couples to marry, ﬁnding that the Constitution protects samesex relationships and putting a remarkable legal winning streak across the country one step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court. The three-judge panel in Denver ruled 2-1 that states cannot deprive people of the fundamental right to marry simply because they want to be wedded to someone of the same sex. The decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upheld a lower court ruling that struck down Utah’s gay-marriage ban. It becomes law in the six states covered by the 10th Circuit: Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming. But the panel immediately put the ruling

on hold pending an appeal. The Utah attorney general’s ofﬁce will appeal the decision but is still assessing whether it will go directly to the U.S. Supreme Court or ask the entire 10th Circuit to review the ruling, spokeswoman Missy Larsen said. The decision gives increased momentum to a legal cause that already has compiled an impressive record in the lower courts after the Supreme Court last year struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Since then, 16 federal judges have issued rulings siding with gay-marriage advocates. The latest of those rulings was in Indiana, where a federal judge struck down that state’s same-sex marriage ban in a decision Wednesday that immediately allows gay couples to wed.

Is Call for Iraqi Unity Too Late? PM asks groups to set aside differences as insurgents close in
POST PUPPY PICS!
White House Needs To Up Its Game He has been India’s prime minister for only about a month, but Narendra Modi has already beaten the White House on Twitter. @NarendraModi’s account has reached 5 million followers, beating out the @WhiteHouse account of 4.98 million followers, making him the fourth-most-followed leader in the world.

Embattled Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki appeared to bow to U.S. pressure Wednesday, striking a conciliatory tone as he called for political unity to tackle al-Qaeda-inspired militants as they swept forward in the province of Anbar. Al-Maliki called on political parties to lay aside differences before the first session of Iraq’s newly elected parliament, expected to take place next week. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry described the comments as “precisely what the United States was encouraging.” But while al-Maliki’s comments may have gone some way to appeasing the United States, for most of

A Kurdish peshmerga fighter walks onto his base Wednesday in northern Iraq.
U.S. officials said Syria launched airstrikes into western Iraq on Tuesday in an attempt to slow the al-Qaeda-inspired insurgency — the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — fighting both the Syrian and Iraqi governments. The White House said intervention by Syria was not the way to stem the insurgents. A group of fighters from al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate in a border town has defected and joined the rival ISIS, officials said Wednesday. The move opens the way for ISIS to take control of both sides of the Syria-Iraq border. (AP)

his political rivals it is too little, too late. With conﬂict threatening to tear apart the country, some are trying to rally support around alternative leaders, raising questions as to whether al-Maliki can cling on. As the prime minister spoke Wednesday, insurgents from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria pressed forward in Anbar, closing in on the provincial capital of Ramadi and on Haditha, home to a huge hydroelectric dam that is crucial to the country’s power supply. “The situation in Anbar is on the edge of a cliff,” said Mohammed Fathi of the local Sunni alWafa party. “It won’t improve until we have a real political process.” Amid the chaos, Washington has urged Baghdad to push forward with forming an inclusive government before it provides military support.

Jury Deadlocked in Phone-Hacking Case
Kerry to Putin: Prove Commitment to Peace Russia’s move to rescind authority to invade Ukraine is welcome but is not enough to head off possible new European and U.S. economic sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday in Brussels. The upper house of Russia’s parliament voted Wednesday to revoke invasion powers it had granted President Vladimir Putin. Putin had requested the move a day earlier, saying he wanted to help support Ukraine’s fledgling peace process. “That’s important. It’s a great step,” Kerry said. “But it could be reversed in 10 minutes, and everybody knows that.” (THE WASHINGTON POST)

July 26, 2014. The date is set. The Silver Line awaits you.
The Silver Line delivers endless possibilities for the region. Now that the opening date is set, are you ready to ride?
Metro to the National Zoo
A message from Metro General Manager Richard Sarles
The Silver Line will connect riders to new opportunities for work, play, education and shopping. The rail line stretches from the existing Largo Town Center station in Prince George’s County, through downtown D.C. and out to the ﬁve new stations in Fairfax County, Virginia.
The 125th Anniversary National Zoo cards are available today for purchase online and at all Metro sales ofﬁces. In the coming weeks, you’ll also ﬁnd them in select Metrorail stations. The cards cost $10 and come loaded with $8 in Metro fare value. Metro riders who present their special edition SmarTrip® card at the National Zoo gift shop will receive 10% off through April 2015. So, the next time you want to see Bao Bao the giant panda cub climb a tree or watch the African lion cubs wrestle, grab your commemorative SmarTrip® card and head straight to the National Zoo. The closest Metrorail station is Woodley Park-Zoo on the Red Line. Metrobus routes 90, 92, 93, 96, L1, L2, L4 and X3 all have stops near the National Zoo. Find more information about fares, travel times and door-to-door directions at wmata.com/tripplanner.

House GOP Moves to Block D.C. Pot Law The fate of marijuana decriminalization in the District is unclear Washington House Republicans on Wednesday blocked funding for a new D.C. law that would eliminate the threat of jail time for pot possession, leaving the fate of one of the country’s most liberal decriminalization efforts unclear. The D.C. Council voted overwhelmingly in March to eliminate jail time for possession. The law is supposed to take effect next month and make possession in the nation’s
capital punishable by a ﬁne of just $25. A spokesman for Mayor Vincent Gray said the city would proceed with implementing the law, even as its authority to mete out the smaller penalties beyond October would remain up in the air. Gray’s ofﬁce also warned that as drafted, the city needed to determine if the action taken by House Republicans could force the city to shut down its entire medical marijuana program, which started last year. Marijuana advocates, meanwhile, were pushing a legal theory that House Republicans’ actions could leave D.C. with no enforceable marijuana law, effectively legalizing possession.
Backstory … Rep. Andy Harris’ amendment, or so-called “rider” on a multibillion-dollar spending bill, would preclude D.C. from spending any money “to enact or carry out any law, rule, or regulation to legalize or otherwise reduce penalties associated with the possession, use, or distribution of any” federal controlled substance. It was one of several perennial riders that House Republicans passed Wednesday, including a prohibition on D.C. spending its own money on abortions for low-income residents. (T WP)
The effort to keep D.C. from loosening its marijuana laws was led by Rep. Andy Harris, Maryland’s only Republican in Congress. Maryland in April also joined the third of U.S. states that have
passed similar laws eliminating jail time for pot possession. But Harris argued that the D.C. law was “bad policy,” assessing a ﬁne of just $25 — a fraction of the $100 ﬁne in Maryland, which escalates
rapidly with repeat violations. Harris’ amendment is now part of a spending bill headed to the House ﬂoor, but it will not become law until the Senate approves a companion bill and compromise legislation passes both houses. Even if the amendment survives a Senate conference, the decriminalization law is likely to pass a congressional review period and take effect beforehand, sometime in July. If the amendment then takes effect after the decriminalization statute is ofﬁcially on the books, the city would be in the odd position of having a decriminalization law that it could not enforce.

Folklife Festival to Remain on National Mall
Woman Dies After Being Hit By a Bus Downtown
The National Park Service says it has reached an agreement with the Smithsonian Institution to keep the annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall. The agency announced a new five-year agreement Wednesday that will be signed during the festivalâ€™s opening ceremony. Some festival supporters have worried new turf regulations on the National Mall would force the festival to relocate. The agreement calls for the festival to be held on the Mall between Seventh and 14th streets for the next five years whenever possible. (AP)

New Harbor for Old Bay? The maker of the quintessential Md. spice may relocate its headquarters
Old Bay Rising — Everywhere
It’s been said that Marylanders will put Old Bay on just about everything: crabs, but also pasta, Cheetos, even chocolate. This year, Flying Dog Brewery released a special-edition beer brewed with Old Bay. In short, it feels like the spice mix is everywhere these days, and not just in Maryland. The company claims 50 million ounces of the seasoning were sold last year — that works out to about 8.3 million of the little yellow tins that are ubiquitous on dinner tables in the Chesapeake Bay region. Nationwide search data from Google confirms that interest in Old Bay is indeed on the upswing. (T WP) PROJECTED
Sparks, Md. The vertical scale represents the number of Google searches for the term “Old Bay” that were made relative to total number of Google searches.
You’ll notice that interest in Old Bay peaks in the middle of each year, usually around June. This happens to be the peak of crab season in Maryland, so this makes sense. Further cementing Old Bay’s status as a quintessential summertime flavor, Google trends data also show that interest correlates strongly with interest in gin and tonics and with interest in crab recipes of all sorts.
The Google data can also be sliced by state. As expected, Maryland is the epicenter of Old Bay interest in the U.S., followed by Delaware and other mid-Atlantic states. Interest in the seasoning remains fairly strong throughout the South, and then tapers off as you head west. Vermont is unique among New England states in the lack of interest there (on its site, the company encourages New Englanders to “PUT IT IN ‘YA CHOWDA!”).
GRAPHIC SOURCES: GOOGLE TRENDS DATA, THE WASHINGTON POST
There may be no product that says Maryland like Old Bay Seasonings, the rust-colored blend of herbs and spices that has graced everything from baked pumpkin seeds to chicken wings and of course, steamed blue crabs. The question is how big of an ingredient the product will remain in Maryland’s economy as its owner, McCormick & Co., considers relocating. Founded in 1889 as a maker of root beer, ﬂavoring extracts and fruit syrups, McCormick is now a $9.3 billion company with spices and seasonings — Old Bay being the most famous — that sell in more than 110 countries. McCormick is the sixth-largest company in the state of Maryland, according to Forbes, and in its last ﬁscal year the company reported $389 million in proﬁts. For 23 years McCormick has been headquartered in Sparks, Md., 20 miles north of Baltimore, and it has three other buildings in nearby Hunt Valley. About 2,400 of its 10,000 employees are located in Maryland, most of them between Baltimore and Pennsylvania. But the company announced in March that it was considering a relocation of its headquarters that could move it out of state. The idea is driven by a need to combine corporate operations, said spokesman Jim Lynn. “We want to consolidate about 800 employees who work in four buildings in the Hunt Valley-Sparks areas into one location to maximize facility efﬁciencies, increase employee collaboration, and take

a proactive approach to sustainability, among other reasons,” he said in an email. Lynn said the company is looking for between 300,000 and 350,000 square feet of space. The areas under consideration, according to a June report by the Baltimore Business Journal, are Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Northern Virginia. “We want to have a minimum impact on the commute of our employees,” Lynn said. Economic development strategists from other states be forewarned, however, that McCormick’s Maryland connections run deep. It has key production facilities in Hunt Valley, including a spice mill and laboratories, and many employees live there as well. The Maryland Department of Business & Economic Development is in regular contact with the company, said spokeswoman Karen Glenn Hood. “We absolutely want McCormick to stay in Maryland, there is no question about it,” she said. “Maryland has been its home ever since it was founded nearly 150 years ago. It’s an iconic company. Everybody knows the name McCormick. It’s got the global recognition — even people in China know what Old Bay is.” Glenn Hood said McCormick had not asked anything of the state to this point. The company is uncertain when it will make a decision but it would like to complete the consolidation by 2018. By then, Old Bay will be close to celebrating its 80th annivers a r y.

Revival of the Unfittest In ‘Once There Were Billions,’ birds that humans drove to extinction return to haunt us Good news! The carrier pigeon is not extinct after all. You may have mourned the bird’s passage and our subsequent reliance on Comcast and Verizon to deliver messages, but as it turns out, the birds are quite abundant. “The carrier pigeon is just another name for a rock dove — the city pigeons that are everywhere,” says Helen James, head bird curator at the National Museum of Natural History. The same can’t be said for the passenger pigeon. (“Everyone gets the two species confused because it’s almost the same name,” James says.) The passenger pigeon has been extinct since 1914, when Martha, the last remaining bird, kicked the bucket at the Cincinnati Zoo. Martha is now on view in the exhibit “Once There Were Billions: Vanished Birds of North America.” She’ll be accompanied by taxidermy specimens of three other once-commonplace birds: the great auk, Carolina parakeet and heath hen. “Extinction is not just about rare species in far away tropical mountain ranges in distant times,” James says. “It’s actually happening here, today.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS) WEDNESDAY

Foul-Weather Friends: Unusual for birds of its kind, the Carolina parakeet lived in chilly climates, with a range extending as far north as the Great Lakes and as far west as Nebraska.
Super Swimmers: Ungainly on land, these flightless seabirds were amazing acrobats in the water, able to dive as deep as 3,300 feet.
Has Anyone Seen Whiskers? With a diet including toxic cocklebur seeds, the Carolina parakeet may have been poisonous. Ornithologist and naturalist John James Audubon observed that cats died after eating the birds.
Sitting Ducks: Mariners slaughtered the unwary birds and used them for oil, bait and meat. As they became rare, they were killed and sold to collectors.
Murderous Millinery: The birds were hunted for their brilliant feathers, which were used to decorate ladies’ hats. The last Carolina parakeet, Incas, died in the Cincinnati Zoo.

Michael Che Face Value:
Portraiture in the Age of Abstraction See the staggering work of mid-20th-century artists who reinvented portraiture. With startling freshness and a touch of deﬁance, a group of young artists demonstrated the value of exploring the face and ﬁgure.

New York-based comedian Michael Che, 31, has only been performing since 2009 and he’s already worked for two of comedy’s most beloved late-night television institutions. Last season, Che was a full-time writer for “Saturday Night Live”; earlier this month, he started a job as the newest correspondent on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.” On Thursday, he’ll add “performed at the Kennedy Center” to his résumé.
‘Saturday Night’ Fever
A ‘Half Hour’ of Jokes
Che’s big break came writing sketches for the 39th season of “SNL.” His highlight reel includes “12 Days Not a Slave” (about a recently freed slave in 1863), “Black Jeopardy!” (with your host, Alex Treblack) and “White Christmas” (a trailer for “the first black holiday movie for a white audience”). Che brought a racially and socially charged viewpoint to “SNL,” but he also helped write a sophomoric sketch about a particularly stinky elevator ride, so don’t think he’s afraid to get silly.
For a taste of Che’s stand-up, check out his episode of Comedy Central’s “The Half Hour,” which aired earlier this month. (You can stream a 10-minute clip from the special on cc.com.) In it, Che jokes about why he’s happy he didn’t go to college, how he doesn’t know anything about politics and lying on résumés. Those last two things make us wonder what he had to do to get the “Daily Show” gig.
New Correspondent It didn’t take Che long to get into the swing of things as “The Daily Show’s” New Correspondent. During his first report on June 4, Che went deadpan, rattling off — with serious journalist aplomb — some of the very real issues facing Syria. When Stewart asked Che to stop making him and the other correspondents look so bad, Che replied, “So you don’t want actual reporting, you just want dumb puns like President Fartar AlA--hole?” “That’s what I’m talking about!” Stewart replied. Seizing the opportunity, Che added: “Syria? More like di-a-rear-ia.” And with that, a new correspondent was born.

What did the change allow you to do?
I was intrigued by the questions I had about love and relationships, and if you tell one story you only have one outcome. It’s sometimes just too simplistic. There were a lot of questions I wanted answered, so I needed a lot of characters. Michael (Liam Neeson), your main character, is a writer. Is he kind of a stand-in for you?
In a way. It’s really an exploration of what it’s like to be a writer and what we kill to create, how selfish we are in our pursuits.
You think all writers are selﬁsh?
So if Michael is a stand-in for you, what’s your relationship with the other characters?
Here, writer-director Paul Haggis has a chance encounter with another person.
DIRECTOR (‘THIRD PERSON,’ ‘CRASH’), SELFISH WRITER
In “Third Person,” out Friday, writer-director Paul Haggis — who won two Oscars for his 2005 film “Crash” — weaves three stories together. Though the film’s characters live disparate lives, an undercurrent of mistrust, dysfunction and grief runs through all three storylines. It might sound similar to “Crash,” but Haggis is clear that he’s up to something very different this time around. What made you come back to this idea of using multiple storylines?
“Crash” was a ver y different structure. There were nine or 10 storylines, and the conceit was you’d follow someone around
INDIES & ARTIES
until they bumped into someone else and then you’d follow them. With this I wanted to tell three stories in three different locations where the characters couldn’t possibly meet.
I think by definition that’s what we are. My kids paid the price for my career. We can say it’s for our family, but it almost never is. It’s about us. It’s just some of us can pretend better than others.
When I wrote this, early on I decided to allow the characters to lead me where they wanted to go, and they took me to places where I wasn’t comfortable and showed me things that I didn’t want to look at. I like exploring my own justifications, my rationalizations for why I am the way I am. The themes in each story are things I tried to work through in my own life. Is that why all the characters are pretty messed up?
I am really drawn to damaged characters and I have a lot of sympathy for them. Making those complicated characters empathetic is something to strive for. It’s too easy to create a good guy, or a good girl. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

The Mighty Docs
“Korengal,” a documentary about soldiers on the front lines in Afghanistan (like, WAY in the front), opens Friday at E Street Cinema. It’s director Sebastian Junger’s follow-up to 2010’s “Restrepo,” which you also should watch. In fact, Netflix all these top docs. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 ‘Restrepo’ Junger and co-director Tim Hetherington spent a year with a platoon serving in one of Afghanistan’s most dangerous valleys. The intense, immersive film shows the reality of war like nothing before.
2 ‘Undefeated’ This 2011 Oscar winner is about an underfunded underdog of a Memphis high school football team. They’re just looking for a winning season — and some way out of the crushing poverty that surrounds them.
3 ‘The Queen of Versailles’ In short, this 2012 doc is about a couple billionaires building a house. Really, it’s about how the recession affected the top 1 percent of the 1 percent, and how money may not buy happiness but it can buy a crap-ton of stuff.
4 ‘Blackfish’ This 2013 film has popped up on CNN (and probably your Facebook feed after your friends saw it). Yes, it’s depressing. You need to see it anyway. You probably won’t feel like going to Sea World much after you do.
5 ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ The world’s best sushi restaurant is in a Tokyo subway station, with Jiro Ono behind the counter. He’s a workaholic and not a great dad, and everything he makes in this 2012 doc will get you hungry enough to chew your arm off.

LAURA BIFANO (FOR EXPRESS)
FITNESS Tegla Loroupe, above, was the first African woman to win the New York City Marathon, and leveraged her prominence to promote peace among warring tribes. Henry Wanyoike lost 95 percent of his eyesight, but went on to compete in races around the world with the help of his track guide Joseph Kibunja. All three athletes will share their stories during the festival in a series of 45-minute sessions called “The Long Distance Runner.” To get to know them even better, lace up your sneakers and meet them for a family-friendly fun run. They’ll start each morning at 10:30 a.m. on the gravel walkway outside the gate of the Kenya Mambo Poa program. (Where they go will depend on the group’s abilities.) V.H.
Folklife Five Ways How to navigate the Smithsonian’s sprawling international cultural festival
A million people are expected to traverse the National Mall during the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which kicked oﬀ Wednesday and runs until July 6. With around 60 to 80 discrete events per day, plus all-day craft demos and food sales, the lineup can be overwhelming. If you want to do, say, ﬁve things this Friday, you have roughly 190 million possible activity combinations. We picked a few highlights from ﬁve categories, so now you have only about 6,000 options. Good luck! Don’t forget sunscreen! RUDI GREENBERG, VICKY HALLETT, HOLLY J. MORRIS AND HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS) National Mall, between Seventh and 14th streets NW; 11:30 a.m., Wed.-Sun., through July 6; 202-633-1000, festival.si.edu. (Smithsonian)
SUNDAY Crossroads China American bluegrass musician Abigail Washburn, who tries to bridge U.S.-China relations using her banjo, performs her mix of Americana and Chinese folk music. As part of Diaspora Day, she’ll share the stage with The Shanghai Restoration Project, an electronic group that melds traditional Chinese instruments with hip-hop beats and R&B-style vocals.
Each day of Folklife closes with the universal language: music. Here

FRIDAY Smithsonian Folkways Tribute to Pete
THURSDAY Sounds of the Southwestern Mountains Last year, the Dimen Dong Folk Chorus of Southwest China sent youth performers to Folklife for a preview of 2014. This year, they return with songs inspired by nature, in which singers mimic the sounds of birds, insects and streams. Also on the bill: the Miao Music and Dance Group, which uses the lusheng bamboo mouth organ.

JULY 5 Benga Night For the final night of concerts, celebrate the syncopated sounds of Benga music, a genre that grew out of Kenya between the late 1940s and early 1960s. Artists Bosco Mulwa, Winyo and Kenge Kenge will showcase the genre’s fast-paced, finger-picked guitar techniques.

Seeger, Citizen Artist Though it doesn’t quite represent China or Kenya, it’s still worth catching this tribute to Pete Seeger, who died in January. With a guest list that includes Radmilla Cody, Anthony Seeger, Tony Trischka, Quetzal, Luci Murphy, and other performers from this year’s festi-
val, the concert aims to capture the spirit of Seeger’s music and activism. Ngoma Stage, 6:30-8 p.m.

Don’t come hungry for funnel cake and corn dogs. In keeping with the
themes, food offerings at Folklife will reflect customs in China and Kenya. Curated by a group of local purveyors, the concessions will take you on a tasty world tour. “Authenticity is something the festival prides itself on,” says Preston Scott, curator of the Kenya program for this year’s event. “People come to experience the culture and traditions of a particular country, and food is a big part of that.” H.S.

THE WATERING HOLE Complement your grub with a glass of Kenya’s Tusker Lager or Kingfisher Lager, popular in the East African country but brewed in Bangalore, India. SPICE ROUTES CAFE The menu draws on ingredients plentiful along Kenya’s coastline. Items like chicken curry with coconut rice, ground beef or veggie samosas (fried pastry pockets) come from a collaboration of Kenyan caterers from D.C. and Las Vegas.

DISH OF THE WEEK
I don’t think it was an easy time for African-Americans, but I’d chose D.C. in the ’40s. My grandfather owned a restaurant counter at 14th and S streets NW. I would go there and see it. What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
When science fiction author Isaac Asimov penned his famed “Three Laws of Robotics,” he should have added a fourth rule: A robot must supply humanity with delicious frozen yogurt. Luckily for us mere mortals, Frobot does just that. The sleek vending machine, the creation of a D.C.-based startup, serves up frozen yogurt in less than 30 seconds. With just the swipe of your credit card and the touch of a screen, you can enjoy yogurt from your favorite fro-yo franchise or, for now, a rotating selection of ready-made mixes while the bot is in beta mode. According to founders Melissa Nelson, 26, and Jeremy O’Sullivan, 27, Frobot is just what the college campus/office building/public park ordered. Friends since the first day of college at Bucknell University, Nelson and O’Sullivan noticed fro-yo options ran few and far between on campus and even fewer and farther once they hit the workforce. “You’d never expect going to college and meeting someone the first day, then creating a frozen yogurt vending machine,” Nelson says. The two accountants hired engineers to make their sweet dreams a reality while Nelson attended law school. After graduation, she jumped into Frobot full time. O’Sullivan continues crunching numbers and

devoting free time to fro-yo. For now, Frobot’s prototype sits in the break room of Dupont’s communal workspace, UberOffices, selling one flavor of proto-fro-yo, which include varieties like chocolate and strawberry, nearly every day to desk-renters at $3 per 7 ounces. “We really wanted to be around other startups,” Nelson says. The entrepreneurs at UberOffices have given the best feedback of all: Frobot sells out nearly every day.
The Frobot team is in negotiations with a number of national froyo chains, and expects versions of the bot will be more readily available by fall. Want to taste the future before then? Stop by the Frobot public launch party Thursday and welcome your new (F)robot overlords. STEPHANIE BREIJO (FOR E XPRESS)

The Pursuit Wine Bar on H Street comes from Thomas Boisvert and Kathleen Davis, college buddies and restaurant newbies.

A New Wine of Work Exposed brick walls? Check. Edison bulbs? Check. Minimalist logo? Check. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think a seasoned restaurateur was responsible for The Pursuit Wine Bar. Instead, the new wine lair, which opened mid-June, is a passion project from two first-timers: Thomas Boisvert, 33, a former attorney, and Kathleen Davis, 31, a meeting coordinator. The duo became fast friends as students at Syracuse University and bonded over late nights fueled by wine and cheese. They’d always toyed with the idea of opening a bar together, and finally it all clicked. “I had a realization that I should be doing what I wanted instead of gritting my teeth and getting through life,” Boisvert says. In addition to their global wine list that includes more than
“I had a realization that I should be doing what I wanted instead of gritting my teeth and getting through life.” — THOMA S BOISVERT, CO-OWNER OF THE PURSUIT WINE BAR ON H STREET
45 glasses priced between $6 and $18 (including four wines available on draft), Boisvert and Davis draw guests with creative specials like Heavy Pour Mondays and a nightly Standby Flight List. The latter costs $15 and includes five sample-size
servings of vinos from previously opened bottles that need to be consumed before they turn. Cocktails made from house-infused alcohols like mint bourbon, jalapeno tequila and ginger vodka hover around $10. Food is more pre-teen than pretentious: Build-your-own grilled cheese sandwiches appeal to picky eaters, while charcuterie, cheese boards and bar bites like nuts and olives round out the menu. Upstairs, a lofty lounge plays host to plush armchairs and tufted love seats that beg for canoodlers. Boisvert says the entire process of opening the bar went smoother than he or Davis could have imagined, further reaffirming his decision to leave the firm. “I can only think of one day when I thought to myself, ‘I’d rather be a lawyer right now,’ ” Boisvert says. “It’s been stressful, but it’s our passion.” HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

U.S. Faces a Familiar Opponent Americans counting on German-born players in vital clash
When Jermaine Jones stands for the national anthems of his countries today, he will soak in the moment. Jones, like four American teammates and his coach, will be familiar with both “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the “Deutschlandlied” before the United States’ World Cup game against Germany. After playing three games in 2008 for the nation in which he grew up, Jones switched allegiance to the U.S. two years later. “When I hear the anthem from the United States, I will close my eyes and let everything go through,” the tenacious midﬁelder said. And then comes the big game. Four years of work by the U.S. come down to 90 or so minutes in the afternoon heat and possi-

in at record levels. While the Germans have four off days between matches, the U.S. has only three. And teams are 0-4 after games in the steamy Amazon rainforest capital of Manaus, where the Americans played Sunday night. “It’s the biggest game of all of our lives,” midﬁelder Kyle Beckerman said. “Any fatigue in our legs will be erased. We’ve got to give it everything we’ve got and more.”
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann is facing Germany, the team he used to coach, today.
bly rain at Arena Pernambuco in Recife, Brazil. Having squandered the chance to clinch advancement earlier this week against Portugal by allowing a stoppage-time goal in a 2-2 draw, the Americans might need at least a tie against the three-time champions to reach the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups for the ﬁrst time.
Five American players — Jermaine Jones, Fabian Johnson, John Brooks, Timothy Chandler and Julian Green — were eligible to play for both the U.S. and Germany under FIFA rules. FIFA eligibility rules say that a player can play for a country if he, a parent or a grandparent was born on that country’s soil. All five players are children of a German and an American serviceman. (E XPRESS)
Both the U.S. and Germany have four points, though Germany has a better goal differential. Ghana and Portugal, with one point each, play simultaneously in Brasilia, knowing a tie in either game would eliminate both of them. U.S. Soccer Federation ofﬁcials will have a system to relay the score of the other match to the bench. Millions in the U.S. will be tuned

Suarez Awaits Bite Punishment
STAYING THE COURSE
Bento Won’t Quit Paulo Bento intends to stay on as Portugal coach even if the team fails to qualify from its World Cup group, saying Wednesday his tenure will be judged on results at the 2016 European Championship. Portugal has just one point from its first two Group G games. (AP)
As the world was judging Uruguay’s Luis Suarez for biting a player in the World Cup, his teammates, coaches and fans in his soccer-crazy country defended the star, blaming the foreign media, his Italian opponents and uneven treatment. World Cup organizers scrambled Wednesday to quickly decide on a punishment before Uruguay plays Colombia Saturday in the round of 16. “We have to resolve it either today or tomorrow,” FIFA disciplinary panel member Martin Hong told reporters Wednesday. “It’s our duty to see justice done.”
RICARDO MAZALAN (AP)
Luis Suarez could receive a lengthy suspension from FIFA for biting a player.
A day after he tangled with defender Giorgio Chiellini, Suarez was coping well, according to the Uruguay football federation president.
“Luis is ﬁne. He’s been through 1001 battles,” Wilmar Valdez told the online site Tenﬁeld.com. “We all know who Luis is and that’s why we have to defend him.” The bite — just before Uruguay scored the clinching goal to eliminate the four-time champion Italians — will now test FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s often-stated commitment to “fair play, discipline, respect.” The maximum penalty would be a ban of 24 international matches. FIFA can also choose to ban Suarez for up to two years. That would cover club and international games and would ruin a widely speculated transfer to Barcelona or Real Madrid. GR AHAM DUNBAR (AP)

Lionel Messi celebrates his second goal in Wednesday’s 3-2 win over Nigeria.
Messi Stars In Win for Argentina World Cup Argentina beat Nigeria 3-2 in their last World Cup group match on Wednesday, with Lionel Messi and Ahmed Musa scoring two goals each before Marcos Rojo kneed in the winner. Argentina won Group F while Nigeria also advanced despite the loss, becoming the ﬁrst African team in the round of 16 in Brazil. Messi had his best match of the World Cup so far, scoring twice in the ﬁrst half to boost his tournament total to four goals, and repeatedly cutting up Nigeria’s defense with dazzling runs and clever passes. “Messi is from Jupiter, he is different,” Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi said. The Argentina captain needed less than three minutes to ﬁnish Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama’s clean sheet in Brazil, slamming in the rebound after Angel Di Maria’s shot bounced off the post.

Deep Thoughts On the NBA Draft This year’s NBA draft class is expected to be one of the deepest in recent history. The next LeBron James is not among this group, but there are plenty of talented youngsters who could make an immediate impact. Looking for a prospect to fill a specific role? Here are the top players in several categories. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)
Best Scorer Jabari Parker, Duke
Best Shooter Doug McDermott, Creighton
Best Rebounder Julius Randle, Kentucky
Best Athlete Aaron Gordon, Arizona
Best All-Around Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
Projected to be drafted: Top three
Projected to be drafted: Lottery pick
Projected to be drafted: Top 10
Projected to be drafted: Lottery
Projected to be drafted: Top three
The 6-foot-8 swingman can score inside and out. He has great footwork in the post and he made 38 3-pointers as a freshman at Duke. He’s also an aboveaverage ball handler for his size and he can create his own shots. Parker’s not the most athletic forward, but he’s crafty enough to make up for that.
In four years at Creighton, McDermott shot 52.5 percent or better from the field and 40 percent or better from 3-point range each year. He also averaged more than 22 points a game in his last three seasons. At the very least, McDermott could fill the role of spot-up shooter to spread the floor.
The 250-pound bruiser was top 10 in the country at rebounding, averaging 10.4 per game, and he led the NCAA in double doubles (24) last season. Randle used his size to bully opponents down low at Kentucky, but will he be as physically dominant in the NBA?
The 6-foot-9 forward’s offensive skills are a little raw, but he had plenty of highlight-reel dunks at Arizona to make you overlook his lack of a post-up game. Gordon would be a perfect addition to any high-tempo team looking for a big man who can rebound and run the floor like a guard.
The likely No. 1 pick is regarded as one of the better perimeter defenders in this draft, so his value isn’t only on the offensive end of the floor. While he had an up-and-down freshman season, his 41-point outburst against West Virginia in the regular-season finale showed his true scoring potential.
Option later in the draft: T.J. Warren, N.C. State. The Wolfpack forward needs to develop an outside shot, but he averaged 24.9 points a game in the ACC without one.
Option later in the draft: Nik Stauskas, Michigan. Like McDermott, he’s also projected to go late in the lottery. In two years at Michigan, Stauskas hit 172 3-pointers.
Option later in the draft: Jarnell Stokes, Tennessee. At 6-foot-8, 263 pounds, Stokes is built like a defensive end. He’s not as offensively talented as Randle, but he can grab plenty of boards.
Option later in the draft: Jerami Grant, Syracuse. Like Gordon, he needs to work on his offensive repertoire, but his length and athleticism make Grant an excellent offensive rebounder.
Not a Bad Thing to Be Left Out The Wizards don’t have a first-round selection in today’s NBA draft. Good, because they would have blown it anyway. The Wizards’ 18th overall pick now resides with Phoenix after the trade for Marcin Gortat last season. Given the team’s subBy Rick sequent playoff Snider run, it was a good deal for Washington, showing once more that general manager
Ernie Grunfeld is better at trades than drafts. What would the Wizards have done with an 18th overall pick? Probably found somebody to sit on the bench. Washington picked Chris Singleton with the 18th pick in 2011, and he played in just 25 games last year. JaVale McGee was the 18th pick in 2008. His biggest contribution
was being traded to gain Nene. Oleksiy Pecherov was picked 18th in 2006. He was out of the league after the 2009-10 season. So there’s no conﬁdence Grunfeld would ﬁnd success with any player selected outside the top three (Bradley Beal, No. 3, 2012 and John Wall, No. 1, 2010). Otto Porter, the third overall last year, will get a rookie pass because of injury. It’s better the Wizards don’t bother investing in a ﬁrst-rounder because they need a big man or a backup point guard for the future,
not another project. The Wizards’ 46th pick in the second round is a long shot. Maybe Washington can ﬁnd another Andray Blatche, who was the 49th overall selection in 2005. Blatche was a fair player who could have been really good with the proper mindset, but the Wizards released him in 2012. There haven’t been many 46th picks to succeed; eight of the past 16 never even played in the NBA. Voshon Lenard and Danny Green are a couple rare success stories, though, with Lenard being the
NBA Draft Today, 7 p.m., ESPN Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y.
only 46th pick since 1994 to average at least 10 points a game in his career. Maybe Washington can ﬁnd a gem in this year’s draft, like Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson. He’s nearly as fast downcourt as Wall, so as a backup he could keep the offense moving. Maybe Florida center Patric Young, a real grinder, can be a quality reserve. But a marquee ﬁrst-rounder? Wizards fans have been fooled enough and shouldn’t worry about not getting one today. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks

Tiger Works Out Kinks in Practice Round Back passes test in Woods’ first public round since March Golf Tiger Woods’ first shot in public in more than three-and-a-half months came at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, and it was a dud — a 4-iron that drifted into a bank at Congressional Country Club’s 10th hole, then trickled into the
pond below. But nearly five hours later, Woods — who will today make the Quicken Loans National his ﬁrst tournament since he underwent back surgery — was more upbeat. His game is not tight, but his back feels ﬁne. “I hit some loose shots today,” Woods said after he completed 18 holes in a pre-tournament proam. “I also hit some really good ones. Back feels good, which is nice, which is a really good sign.”
He began We d ne sd ay by spraying balls off the tee, and hit only one fairway in his first nine holes. But after Woods ripping one well right of the 18th fairway, he made an adjustment with his grip, and began striping better drives. The true test will come at 8:12 a.m. this morning, when

NFL Adjusts Concussion Settlement: The NFL agreed Wednesday to remove a $675 million cap on damages from thousands of concussion-related claims after a federal judge questioned if there would be enough money to cover as many as 20,000 retired players. A revised agreement also eliminates a provision that barred anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. (AP)

Too Little, Too Late? Gary Oldman apologizes for his bigoted remarks in Playboy magazine 31
A Summer Bummer
“Buying Naked” is my new favorite real estate show (10 p.m., Saturday on TLC). That’s because a real estate show about nudists seeking to buy property in a nudist housing development is far more educational than a real estate show in which everyone is clothed. Here are some of the pointers I’ve picked up: When showing a house to a nudist, place towels on upholstered chairs to prevent butt cheeks from interacting with chair fabric. By Marc Rough-hewn Silver wood is problematic because, in the words of one nudist, “splinters are not fun to have.” Even though nudists jog naked and bicycle naked and water their lawns naked, they do not like big windows that would enable EVERYONE to see them naked. There should be ample space in front of a cooktop so nudists can easily dodge open flames. Countertop rule: “Countertops should be higher than your genitalia.” P.S.: Mom and Dad, don’t be nervous about watching with the kids. Butt shots abound, but private parts are concealed by such things as a bottle of wine, two ceramic owls, a leaf blower, dogs, cymbals and a pineapple. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
TV Review Whether or not anyone wants to spend the summer staring directly at sorrow and regret, that’s precisely what HBO and the creators of the new drama “The Leftovers,” premiering 10 p.m. on Sunday, seem to have in mind. Yet, despite the downer language, the show delivers on an exceedingly intriguing premise, with some of the most beguilingly morose performances delivered this year. It’s a strange but good wallow. Using executive producer and writer Tom Perrotta’s thoughtful novel as a template for a much broader story, “The Leftovers” is one of the coldest TV shows I’ve ever seen. It possesses almost no irony and a style that is conspicuously drab. Watching it produces a numbness that isn’t anything like grief, but more like the tingly approach of Novocaine. The tongue can’t help returning to the hurt spot. Justin Theroux, who until “The Leftovers” has been sorely underutilized as a lead actor, stars as Kevin Garvey, the police chief of Mapleton, N.Y., a small town still coming to grips with a global crisis. Three years earlier, one in every 50 or so people randomly vanished in a single instance — a total of 2 percent of global population. They didn’t burn up or ﬂoat away. They’re just inex-
One response to the crisis imagined in “The Leftovers” is religious fervor. HBO
Really Open House
HBO rapture drama ‘The Leftovers’ is disturbingly dark for such a light season
Justin Theroux stars as the police chief of a town in the wake of the rapture.
It almost goes without saying that it’s still difficult to trust “The Leftovers’ ” co-creator Damon Lindelof four years after the miserable wrap-up of “Lost,” a deserted-island saga he co-created that was so burdened with unanswered questions and fuzzy symbology that it became one of modern television’s favorite chew-toys. In promoting “The Leftovers,” Lindelof has described the heated reactions to “Lost’s” finale as a chastening experience, and one that he’s not eager to repeat. (T WP)
plicably gone. Celebrities “poofed,” too: Anthony Bourdain (yay?), Jennifer Lopez, Pope Benedict XVI and Gary Busey, among others. “I get the pope,” a bartender remarks. “But Gary f---ing Busey?”
We ﬁgure out that some Americans viewed the departure as an act of God, ﬂocking to the comforts of belief. Laurie (Amy Brenneman) abandoned her spouse and children to join a group called the Guilty
Remnant, a bizarre commune whose members take a vow of complete silence, wear only white clothing and silently stalk their neighbors. To some degree, I admire how “The Leftovers” is averse to explanations, because that’s the whole point: The people left behind must forever puzzle it out. What it desperately needs, though, is a comic relief character to lighten some small part of the load that viewers are being asked to shoulder. Perrotta’s best novels (“Election,” “Little Children”) are known for their wicked uses of dark humor, which is entirely absent here. It’s hard for a viewer to know what to do with all this excess grief, even if it’s quite beautifully offered. People watch television for all sorts of reasons, but I’m not sure they watch it to only feel worse. HANK STEUVER (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Fall Fashion? It’s Handled: Women’s fashion retailer The Limited announced Wednesday that it has teamed up with “Scandal” star Kerry Washington, left, and the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo to create a collection inspired by the ABC series. The Limited described the collection, which will go on sale in late September, as “sophisticated professional” with a neutral palette, tailored leg trousers and chic, feminine blouses. (AP)

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’re in a position to demand more today than you might otherwise. When the chips are down, others will be looking to you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You know how bad — and how good — things can be. You’ve been fully prepped and are capable of handling both extremes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your knowledge of “the way things are” will help you arrange the day’s events to suit the needs of so many who are relying on you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your willingness to do as you are told can serve you quite well, but at some point you may be compelled to say “no” to a certain request.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) It’s time to treat those in your care to something a little more fun than the same old routine activities. Use your imagination! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll be privy to certain information that others are eagerly seeking. By day’s end, they’ll be coming to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’re ready to make a certain sacrifice, but you’re not going to give another the goahead to do something you wouldn’t do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’re expecting things to be easier than they’ve been in the recent past, and they can be, but at least one endeavor will prove complicated.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You can care for those in need of care without attracting a great deal of attention — and that is the best way to go about it for now.
