Intruder Shocked Canadian Didn’t Nicely Ask Him to Stay Police say a Vancouver homeowner came home to find a freshly showered naked man cooking eggs in his kitchen. The 30-year-old man fled after being confronted, but police soon found and arrested him near a lake, according to video by GeoBeats News released Monday. Police suspect the man was under the influence of drugs, and they reminded residents to lock their doors and windows during the summer. (EXPRESS) VICES

WikiLeaks: No Asylum Yet for Snowden NSA leaker has not accepted Venezuela’s offer, website says Moscow The WikiLeaks secret-spilling site on Tuesday said National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden has not yet formally accepted asylum in Venezuela, trying to put to rest growing confusion over whether he had taken up the country’s offer. Venezuelan President Nico-

las Maduro has offered asylum to Snowden and says his country received a request from the former NSA systems analyst. But Snowden, who is believed to be in a Moscow airport’s transit zone, has applied for asylum in a number of other countries as well, and it is not clear how easy it would be for him to travel to the Latin American country. On Tuesday, a prominent Russian lawmaker tweeted that Snowden had accepted Venezuela’s offer, then deleted the posting.

It was not possible to immediately reach Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian parliament’s foreign affairs committee who has acted as an unofficial point man for the Kremlin on the Snowden affair. But soon after the tweet disappeared, Pushkov sent another one saying his claim was based on a report from the state channel Rossiya 24, also known as Vesti 24. The channel said Pushkov misunderstood its report on Maduro’s comments Monday night during a meeting with Panama’s president,

Accepting Asylum For Edward Snowden to leave for Venezuela, he would need the country to issue him travel documents and get him there. The only direct flight from Moscow goes over Europe and the U.S., which could cause issues. The presidents of Bolivia and Nicaragua have also said Snowden was welcome in their countries. (AP)

which the anchorwoman introduced by saying “Venezuela has finally received an answer” from Snowden. She then clarified that Maduro said Venezuela had received Snowden’s official request and showed a clip of him saying in Russian voiceover that Snowden “should decide when to fly to Caracas, if he indeed has decided to come here.” Pushkov, however, followed up with a third tweet saying, “As Vesti 24 reported citing Maduro, Snowden accepted his offer of asylum.” JIM HEINTZ (AP)

The trajectory of the bullet and gun powder on Trayvon Martin’s body support George Zimmerman’s account that the teen was on top of him when the defendant shot and killed Martin, an expert on gunshot wounds testified Tuesday. During testimony, forensic pathologist Dr. Vincent DiMaio also used photographs of Zimmerman to point out where he appeared to have been struck. Defense attorneys, who said they may wrap up their case today, were hoping DiMaio’s testimony would help convince jurors of Zimmerman’s claims that he shot Martin in self-defense.

Both women were found on the runway, amid debris. In a news conference Tuesday, National Transportation Safety Board officials didn’t explain fully why the plane approached the notoriously difficult landing strip too low and slow, likely causing the crash. NTSB Chair woman Deborah Hersman said the pilot at the controls was only about halfway through his training on the Boeing 777 and was landing at the

As Egypt’s political crisis tumbled toward its first night of bloodshed last week, the country’s army chief was pulled away for a phone call. It was one he couldn’t ignore. On the other end was Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. He was calling to reinforce his strong backing to Egypt’s new caretaker rulers. And, he reminded Gen. Abdel-Fattah elSissi on Friday, Saudi Arabia expected “wisdom” as events unfolded. The subtext was clear: Egypt’s upheavals will ultimately test the definitions of the Arab Spring and

views on its role as a breeding ground for democracy in the region. For nations such as Saudi Arabia, which have used all their resources to quell calls for reform, nothing could be more soothing than having the Arab Spring’s democratic credentials in doubt. They

can increasingly point to Egypt as a cautionary tale about the aspirations of democracy to both validate their hold on power and tighten crackdowns on perceived dissent. Elsewhere — from Tunisia’s political jockeying to the reshuffled Syrian opposition leadership — sideline debates are now dominated by questions about whether Western-style political openness is the right fit for the array of forces set in motion by Arab revolts. “Egypt is not going to change the fundamental idea that the Arab Spring is about democracy and democratic ideals,” said Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, professor at Emirates University. “It will change the conversation, though, to bring in more questions about who is ready for it.” BRIAN MURPHY (AP)

He says the U.S. will have clear objectives for its mission in Afghanistan after the long-planned drawdown.

O’Malley Unveils Boost For Pr. George’s Transit $650M plan includes projects at Greenbelt and Branch Avenue

Other Upgrades Also included in the Maryland plan is $150 million to construct an interchange at Maryland Route 4 and Suitland Parkway that officials say would relieve congestion, and $46 million for bicycle, pedestrian and safety improvements along roads in Prince George’s, including U.S. Route 1 in College Park. (T WP)

Pr. George’s County, Md. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley on Monday touted close to $650 million in planned spending on transportation projects in Prince George’s County, Md., including new interchanges that have languished on the drawing board for years. The new projects were the latest around the state that O’Malley administration officials have attributed to a major transportation funding bill approved earlier this year that gradually raises gas taxes. The first increase of 3.5 cents per gallon took effect last week.

O’Malley heralded the “modern investments” at the Branch Avenue Metro station, one of the beneficiaries of the additional tax revenue. The state plans to spend $50 million to improve access to the station in Suitland, including construction of a pedestrian bridge. The spending announced Mon-

day also includes $7 million to design a better interchange at the Greenbelt Metro station, which Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III said could help the county’s bid to lure the FBI to Greenbelt.

For more than 20 years, a squat, red brick building in Fort Belvoir, Va., is where the D.C. region’s law enforcement dogs — the ones who patrol airports, the Capitol, the White House and other high-profile locations — have been taken for care. The region is home to one of the biggest concentrations of working dogs in the country, officials say. Canines from the Secret Service, the Transportation Security Administration, Amtrak and the U.S. Capitol Police come here for their yearly checkups. The dogs are a variety of breeds — German shepherds, Labrador retrievers, Belgian Malinois, even beagles. During the swelter of Washing-

ton’s summer, clinic workers have traveled to Dulles to conduct special sessions on spotting heatstroke and exhaustion. During the winter, handlers may receive training on spotting frostbite and hypothermia. Belvoir’s veterinarians, a mix of civilian and military personnel, understand the special needs of their patients. These working

dogs may suffer from ailments not necessarily seen in their civilian counterparts. Sometimes it’s back or joint trouble from all their leaping into trucks and cargo hatches. Hip dysplasia — a condition caused by improperly formed hip joints — is another common ailment. And like the jobs held by people, the dogs’ work can be stress-

ful, said veterinarian Nancy Vincent-Johnson, a retired 21-year Army veteran. Take Igor, a 9-year-old German shepherd who works for the Capitol Police. Vincent-Johnson said she had squeezed Igor, whose specialty is explosives detection, in between appointments because he’s been having intestinal issues. His weight is down, and his handler says Igor is just not himself. Vincent-Johnson strokes Igor’s rich black and brown coat as she examines him, feeling the area around his rib cage and gently lifting his impressively large paws. She consults Igor’s chart and notes that blood work done from his previous visit shows a Vitamin B12 deficiency, which can lead to weakness and fatigue. The pok ing and prodding complete, Igor settles on the f loor and lets out a deep sigh. LORI AR ATANI (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Approach to Md. Civil Suits Upheld Annapolis Maryland’s highest court on Tuesday upheld the state’s long-standing all-or-nothing approach to assessing fault in civil lawsuits, leaving the choice to legislators to change state law and causing major implications for consumers and businesses. In a 5-to-2 ruling, the Court of Appeals in Annapolis recognized it has the power to rewrite the rules, which opponents consider harsh and antiquated. But the majority pointed to the General Assembly’s failure to do so as a reason for hold

off on a change. “It is not our task to invade the province of the General Assembly and enact into law a sweeping revision,” according to the concurring opinion of Judge Clayton Greene Jr., who was joined by three colleagues. The case was brought by a former assistant soccer coach in Howard County who was injured after swinging from the metal crossbar of a goal. In Maryland, along with the District and Virginia, plaintiffs such as the then-20-year-old coach, James Coleman, can’t be compensated if they are partly to blame for their own injuries.

Most other states allow juries to consider the relative fault of all parties in determining whether, and how much, to award a plaintiff. Over the years, the General Assembly has rejected dozens of bills that would shift to a system of so-called comparative negligence. Greene acknowledged that such a system may be “more equitable” and he urged the General Assembly to tackle the issue. It is too early to tell how enthusiastic the General Assembly might be for rewriting state law when only two judges dissented.

Amid a family feud that has shaken up D.C.’s iconic Tabard Inn near Dupont Circle, shown in June, four former employees have filed lawsuits alleging unfair employment practices there.

D.C. Faces Walmart Threat Retailer warns that ‘living wage’ imperils plan for all 6 stores in city Washington

JSTAMPFL/A&R COMPANIES

Also Up for Vote

In February, plans for one Walmart, on East Capitol Street, were broadened to take better advantage of the nearby Capitol Heights Metro station. The more-modern design shows East Capitol on the left and a private entrance to the store on the right.

Walmart said for the first time Tuesday, a day ahead of a decisive D.C. Council vote, that it will abandon plans for at least three planned stores if a proposal requiring it to pay a “living wage” becomes law. Alex Barron, a regional general manager for Walmart U.S., wrote in a Washington Post op-ed piece that the proposed wage requirement “would clearly inject unforeseen costs into the equation.” As a result, Barron said, the company “will not pursue” stores at three locations where construction has yet to begin — two in Ward 7 and one in Ward 5. He added that the legislation, if passed, will also “jeopardize” three stores where construction is already underway. The bill as currently written would require retailers with corporate sales of a billion dollars or more and operating in spaces 75,000 square feet or larger to pay their employees no less than $12.50 an hour. The District’s current minimum wage is $8.25. The Arkansas-based megaretailer has issued increasingly aggressive statements in recent weeks opposing the bill but had not, to this point, directly threatened to withdraw from its plans. A team of Walmart public relations executives and lobbyists was in the John A. Wilson Building on Tuesday afternoon delivering the news to D.C. Council members and other officials. The living wage bill, known as the Large Retailer Accountability Act, passed the council on an initial 8 to 5 vote last month. A second vote today would set up a difficult veto decision for Mayor Vincent

Gray, who personally lobbied top Walmart executives to open a store at the Skyland site in Ward 7, near his Hillcrest home. The council would need to muster nine votes to override a potential veto. D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson, the lead sponsor of the legislation, appeared caught off guard by Walmart’s decision. At a news conference Tuesday morning, Mendelson downplayed questions from reporters asking whether he feared a loss of some Walmart stores. “Those who oppose the legislation are insisting they will pull

out, but that is speculative,” Mendelson said during his news conference. “I do not state for a fact that every store that wants to locate in the District will therefore locate in the District under this legislation. But I do think it’s important that large retailers that have economic power, earnings of a $1 billion or more, they have the ability to pay a wage that comes out to $26,000 a year. That is not very much.” In an interview Tuesday afternoon, after being visited by the Walmart delegation, Mendelson criticized the company for delivering its ultimatum less than

The D.C. Council votes today on a new proposal that would ban smoking within 25 feet of any city-owned park, community or recreation center, hiking trail or bus stop. The ban, up for the first of two votes, would curtail smoking on hundreds of city blocks and around what Metro officials say are 3,426 bus stops in the city. If enacted, the District would join more than 300 other cities that have banned smoking in parks, though few have included bus stops. It has the backing of the administration of Mayor Vincent Gray, above, and appears to have broad support of the council. It is one of dozens of bills the council plans to act on today before it goes on a two-month recess. (TWP)

24 hours before the scheduled final vote. The company, he noted, did not appear at a March hearing on the bill and sent “ambiguous signals” in recent weeks about its intentions. “I’m disappointed that they’re choosing to play hardball over this legislation,” he said, adding that Walmart’s stance “sugge st s it ’s a n a l l- or-not h i ng approach, which is not a helpful way for us to do development.” MIKE DEBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

“That means back to the drawing board for Ward 7 unless there’s a vote in opposition. … We were counting on a major anchor retailer to bring more retail and 600 jobs in a ward where unemployment is at its highest.”

Upward Momentum

It’s been another active NBA offseason, with the two most storied franchises in the history of the league — the Lakers and the Celtics — losing key players. With all the moves, these are the five teams that made the best roster improvements. JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)

Wizards guard Bradley Beal missed most of the last month of the season.

Hurt Beal Remains Limited Wizards During the brief breaks in action in the Wizards’ first summer league minicamp practice Monday, Bradley Beal sneaked onto the Verizon Center floor to dribble between his legs or toss up a floater before scurrying off to observe. Beal cracked jokes and shouted words of encouragement from the sideline, but he clearly would have rather been competing and playing with the newcomers, Otto Porter Jr. and Glen Rice Jr., and holdovers Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton. More than three months after he was diagnosed with a stress injury in his right fibula, Beal remains limited and was unable to receive medical clearance to play in the summer league in Las Vegas, which starts this weekend. Admitting he has probably hit the frustrating period of restraint as he rehabilitates from injury, Beal acknowledged that he has to remain patient. “It’s definitely tough, not being able to work out for 12 weeks or whatever it was, and now I’m actually starting to get into it. Gradually I’ll work my way back into it, and hopefully I’ll be back in no time,” Beal said. He remains questionable for participation in Team USA’s July 22-25 minicamp in Las Vegas, though he plans to attend. MICHAEL LEE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Houston Rockets

Brooklyn Nets

Golden State Warriors

Los Angeles Clippers

New Orleans Pelicans

Key addition: Andre Iguodala (from Denver)

Key additions: Darren Collison (from Mavs), Jared Dudley (from Suns), J.J. Redick (from Bucks)

Key additions: Tyreke Evans (from Kings), Jrue Holiday (from 76ers)

Key addition: Dwight Howard (from Lakers) Key losses: Thomas Robinson (to Blazers), Aaron Brooks (waived) 2012-13 record: 45-37 (8th in West) Why they improved: The Rockets were one of the worst defensive teams last year, allowing an average 102.5 points per game. With Howard — a threetime defensive player of the year — protecting the rim and dominating the boards, the defense should see vast improvements. It will be trickier to figure out how the center fits in to their up-tempo offense.

Three Trending Down

Key additions: Kevin Garnett (from Celtics), Paul Pierce (from Celtics), Jason Terry (from Celtics) Key losses: Gerald Wallace (to Celtics), Kris Humphries (to Celtics) 2012-13 record: 49-33 (4th in East) Why they improved: Though the Nets were a talented veteran group last year, they lacked championship pedigree. With Garnett, Pierce and Terry, they have three former champions who bring leadership, grit and established roles to a team that in the past has lacked an identity.

1. Boston Celtics: There’s no one left for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo to pass to, as Boston begins its rebuilding process.

Key losses: Jarrett Jack (to Cavs), Carl Landry (to Kings) 2012-13 record: 47-35 (6th in West) Why they improved: The Warriors are coming off a breakout season in which they advanced to the West semifinals. Now come higher expectations, especially after they acquired the defensive-minded Iguodala. The veteran will fit in well with the talented young backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Key losses: Eric Bledsoe (to Suns), Caron Butler (to Suns), Grant Hill (retired) 2012-13 record: 56-26 (4th in West) Why they improved: The Clippers won the Pacific Division last year so they don’t need drastic change. Their biggest moves were re-signing Chris Paul and bringing in coach Doc Rivers. Collison gives the team a true backup point guard, Dudley will do the dirty work and Redick will spread the floor.

2. Los Angeles Lakers: Kobe Bryant is coming back from an Achilles injury and Dwight Howard left town. That’s tough for a team that was swept out of the first round last season.

Key losses: Robin Lopez (to Blazers), Greivis Vasquez (to Kings) 2012-13 record: 27-55 (14th in West) Why they improved: It’s too bad New Orleans is in the West. In the East, this roster could compete for a playoff spot. With 2012 No. 1 pick Anthony Davis, last year’s leading scorer Eric Gordon, All-Star point guard Holiday and 2009-10 rookie of the year Evans, the Pelicans are an intriguing up-and-coming team.

3. Denver Nuggets: Reigning coach of the year George Karl was fired and Denver lost Andre Iguodala from an overachieving team that finished third in the West.

Sports Teen back at camp after making NHL debut in the playoffs Last summer, Capitals forward prospect Tom Wilson was an 18-year-old eager to make an impression only weeks removed from being the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NHL draft. After making his NHL debut in Game 5 of the Capitals’ first-round playoff series against the Rangers in May, he’s a bigger, stronger and more experienced teenager as he participates in this week’s annual development camp. “I actually forgot that he was here because in my mind, after playing in the playoffs last year, I kind of didn’t expect him to be here,” coach Adam Oates said with a laugh Monday. “I imagine for him that it might be a little diffi-

cult to do this just because he got to play in the playoffs last year in the NHL.” Wilson, however, is not taking anything for granted. “Anytime I’m here, I’m trying to pick up everything I can,” he said.

“Anytime you’re at the top level in Washington, ears are open, eyes are open.” Development camp is an opportunity for Washington’s coaches, scouts and front office to evaluate the franchise’s prospect pipeline.

In Wilson’s case, general manager George McPhee is focusing on getting to know him more as a person than as a player. “I’m not sure we’re evaluating Tom Wilson on his play out here,” McPhee said. “We know what he can do on the ice. We’ve seen it. We just want to measure how he’s coming along here. And he’s coming along great.” It is expected that the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Wilson will challenge for a roster spot when the Capitals reconvene for training camp in September. The departure of Matt Hendricks, who signed with the Nashville Predators last week and served as a sort of mentor to Wilson last season, leaves a potential spot open in the bottom six. Last season with OHL Plymouth, Wilson scored 23 goals and earned 104 penalty minutes in 48 games. “If I can do anything to fill that role, then I’m going to do it,” Wilson said.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was “argumentative” and slammed the door on police during their first encounter following his friend’s death, according to court records. Hernandez was later accused of orchestrating the man’s death in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home. A c c o r d i n g t o a n a f f i d avit attached to search warrants unsealed Tuesday, Hernandez approached police after he noticed them parked outside his North Attleboro, Mass., home on June 17, the day Odin Lloyd’s body was found. Police said they asked him about an SUV he had rented. Hernandez told them he rented it for Lloyd and had last seen him in Boston the day before, the documents said. The affidavit said Hernandez

then became argumentative, asked “What’s with all the questions?” and locked the door of his house behind him. He then returned with his attorney’s business card and didn’t respond when police told him they were investigating a death. “Mr. Hernandez slammed the

door and relocked it behind him,” the records read. “Mr. Hernandez did not ask officers whose death was being investigated. Mr. Hernandez’s demeanor did not indicate any concern for the death of any person.” Hernandez came out about 10 minutes later and agreed to be questioned at a police station, according to the documents. Hernandez is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in the killing of Lloyd, whose bullet-ridden body was found in an industrial area near Hernandez’s home. His attorneys have said the evidence against him is circumstantial and that Hernandez is eager to clear his name. Eight search warrants were unsealed Tuesday after news organizations sought access to the records. A judge had granted the media requests on Monday. (AP)

A baseball card that depicts former President George H.W. Bush.

H.W. Bush Cards Have 2 Versions Baseball Baseball cards depicting former President George H. W. Bush as a Yale first baseman have fetched thousands of dollars each since being made for the White House in 1990. But experts now believe that many of the cards in circulation were not part of the set presented to the president. The difference? The 100 cards given to Bush by the Topps company have a thick, clear coating on the front, while others do not. Given their scarcity, both versions likely will remain among the most valuable modern-day cards, said Joe Orlando, president of Professional Sports Authenticator in Santa Ana, Calif. (AP)

The Conflict Within

His Comedy Roots A drummer can be a comedian’s best friend, accentuating a punch line with a quick ba-dum-ching. Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s relationship to comedy is deeper than that. For one, if it wasn’t for Questlove and The Roots, it’s possible Jimmy Fallon wouldn’t be taking over “The Tonight Show.” The Roots were why I started watching Fallon’s “Late Night.” So many bits — Black Simon & Garfunkel, the History of Rap, Slow Jamming the News — By Rudi wouldn’t be possible Greenberg without the band. As Questlove writes in his new memoir, “Mo’ Meta Blues,” comedy is a big part of his career. When The Roots were struggling commercially in the early 2000s, comedy was his savior. He hung around Dave Chappelle’s standup shows and became musical director of “Chappelle’s Show” in 2003. “That experience, mixing music and entertainment … was the best preparation imaginable for my Fallon job,” he writes. Questlove’s book is packed with stories about comedians. There’s the hotel party with Tracy Morgan; rollerskating with Eddie Murphy and Prince; and his pseudo-beef with Tina Fey. The writing, too, is genuinely funny; the rhythm of comedy comes naturally to Questlove. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg

As The Civil Wars ready a new album, the future of the band hangs in the balance Music

There are still helium balloons clinging to the ceiling and new toys scattered across a table in the living room when Joy Williams answers the door. The Civil Wars singer recently found cream cheese icing in her hair, more remnants of her son Miles’ first birthday party the night before. It is one of the happiest times for Williams, but as is often the case with life, it’s also one of the most difficult. Over the next hour, Williams will laugh and cry and

“We created [the album] together — we just happened to be in a bit of a civil war ourselves.” express a range of emotions from pride to fear and hope as she talks about the status of her Grammy Award-winning duo with John Paul White and their new self-titled second album. The group is officially on hiatus even as a single hits the airwaves and the album nears its Aug. 6 release date. She is fiercely proud of the new music and can’t wait for everyone to hear it. But she knows she has to tell the story of how things fell apart before she can expect anyone to pay

Inside Jokes

Joy Williams, left, says she hasn’t spoken with her partner in The Civil Wars, John Paul White, right, in about eight months.

Backstory

No Clear Answers Joy Williams and John Paul White found fast success as The Civil Wars, but underneath it all was unseen tension, Williams says. As in many separations, explanations didn’t come easy. There was no band-ending argument. Rather, tensions built up over time and reached an impasse. “It was getting close to impossible for us to perform together on stage,” she says, “and nobody wants to see a show like that.” (AP)

attention to the music. “This album chronicles loss and regret and anger and victory and sweetness and loyalty and I hope that people get the chance to listen to it,” Williams says. The last we heard from The Civil Wars, they were ending a European tour in an abrupt and unexpected fashion, issuing an unusually honest news release that attributed the decision to “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition.” Williams says eight months later, she and White aren’t speaking, but she hopes time will bring them back together to perform the new music live. There are no plans for them to tour together, however.

In her first interview since the decision to come off the road, Williams says the hiatus is meant to be “a deep breath of ‘What’s next?’” She hopes in time there will be healing and collaboration again. White was not available for an interview, and he did not respond to a message left for him. “John Paul and I aren’t speaking right now, but to me that doesn’t determine the outcome of the band, because if we’re not speaking, we can’t determine the outcome of the band at this moment,” she says. “So the other elephant in the room is what’s happening with the band? The reality is I’m not even quite sure.” CHRIS TALBOT T (AP)

Toy Robot Rockers: Daft Punk doesn’t have any immediate plans to promote “Random Access Memories” with a tour, but there is an alternative: action figures! On Dec. 27, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de HomemChristo will release two 6-inch figures that feature the French DJ duo in their signature robot outfits, made with “a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism,” according to a product description.

She’s Ready to Fly Solo Eminem collaborator Skylar Grey finally releases her debut, ‘Don’t Look Down’ Music

“For the past couple years … I haven’t been allowed to be an artist on all the levels I’ve wanted to.”

TIMOTHY HIATT (GETTY IMAGES)

Let Nicole Scherzinger serve as a cautionary tale. The former Pussycat Doll spent more than half a decade working on a solo debut that has still never been released in the U.S. Singer-songwriter Skylar Grey, whose own solo album gestated for years, thought she might meet the same fate. “I was a little bit worried, honestly,” she says. Her official debut, “Don’t Look Down,” endured years of tweaking, title changes and underperforming singles before it finally got a proper release this week. It’s not that Grey thinks “Don’t Look Down” will make her famous, it’s just that releasing an album unlocks all the other things she wants to do.

The album, self-released for free like all of his music, is the result of more than two years of work. Instead of sampling the work of others — like he usually does — he wrote, produced and — with the help of some musicians — recorded a series of live music vignettes. The 32-year-old DJ then pressed

The boundary dividing the U.S. and Mexico is the scene of the crime for FX’s ‘The Bridge’

Each visit will be at Georgetown University and lasts about 3 hours. Participants may be asked to complete 6 visits over 4 years. Parents will be paid $40 + travel per visit and adolescents get a picture of their brain on a t-shirt and $20-$45 in gift cards per visit.

The victim has been sawed in half. The border incident forces El Paso Detective Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) to work in tandem with Detective Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) of the Chihuahua State Police. Cross takes by-the-books exactitude to the extreme. She won’t let an ambulance cross the border because it might pollute the crime

expense of empathy. Ruiz is a good man from a corrupt police force. “ T he Br id ge” i s i nt r ig uing, but it might be better if the characters weren’t so weighted w ith cultural sy mbolism. KE VIN M C DONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)

Unhappy Campers Viewers should avoid spending time with this summer ‘Camp’ Series Premiere “Ca mp” is a botched 10:00 affair. But an interesting mess, nonetheless. While the summer camp setting lends itself to horror, teen-sex romps or maybe a musical, the makers of “Camp” wanted to use a rustic summer sleep-away setting for a complex relationship dramedy a la “Parenthood” or “Brothers & Sisters.” Rachel Griffiths stars as Mackenzie Granger, the owner of Little Otter Family Camp. She’s perky and neurotic. Her husband of several decades has just dumped her for a much younger Russian woman.

Rachel Griffiths plays the owner of a summer camp in NBC’s newest drama.

Mackenzie’s teen son, Buzz (Charles Grounds), is mortified to be working around his mother and deludes himself with a checklist of sexual adventures he’ll complete by summer’s end. He appears to have wandered in from an “American Pie” knockoff. He befriends Kip (Thom Green), a too-serious teen who’d rather be screening old movies, not unlike a Woody Allen character. Teens and adults trade in rather frank sex talk on “Camp,” including one rather tasteless joke at the expense of writer Christopher Hitchens, who died last year after a long battle with cancer. “Camp” will probably seem too “Porky’s” for fans of adult dramas and too adult for the ABC Family crowd.
