Later Retirement May Help Prevent Dementia Boston New research boosts the “use it or lose it” theory about brainpower and staying mentally sharp. People who delay retirement have less risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, a study of nearly half a million people in France found. It’s by far the largest study to look at this, and researchers say the conclusion makes sense. Working tends to keep people physically active, socially connected and mentally challenged — all things known to help prevent mental decline. “For each additional year of work, the risk of getting dementia is reduced by 3.2 percent,” said Carole Dufouil, a scientist at INSERM, the French government’s health research agency that led the study and gave results Monday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Boston. About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimer’s is the most common type. In the

health records on self-employed people who pay into a Medicarelike health system. Researchers used these records on more than 429,000 workers. They were 74 on average and had been retired for an average of 12 years. Nearly 3 percent had developed dementia, but the risk of this was lower for each year of age at retirement. Someone who retired at 65 had about a 15 percent lower risk of developing dementia compared to someone retiring at 60, after other factors that affect those odds were taken into account, Dufouil said. To rule out the possibility that mental decline may have led people to retire earlier, researchers did analyses that eliminated people who developed dementia within 5 years of retirement, and within 10 years of it. “The trend is exactly the same,” suggesting that work was having an effect on cognition, not the other way around, Dufouil said. Heather Snyder of the Alzheimer’s Association said the study results don’t mean everyone needs to delay retirement. “It ’s more st ay ing cognitively active, staying socially active” that’s important, she said.

THE NSA SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL IS THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. IN AMERICA, THOUSANDS OF WHISTLEBLOWERS, DISSIDENTS AND OTHER INNOCENTS ARE BEING SURVEILLED, STALKED, HARASSED, SABOTAGED, AND COVERTLY ATTACKED.
Dear President Obama: We the People, who have been targeted, tortured and terrorized by covert
At this writing there are an estimated 500,000 or more victims in the U.S. including many whistleblowers, dissidents, as well as everyday citizens whose sabotage has been arranged. Others appear to have been unwittingly placed into research programs designed to develop supposedly“non-lethal”weapons—including directed energy weapons which are inaudible and invisible -- yet can cause severe symptoms in the victim. These symptoms can include severe pain, difﬁculty thinking, and emotional distress. Some victims are subjected to the microwave auditory effect, a property of microwaves which when modulated and directed in a speciﬁc fashion at a victim, causes voices which are perceived as arising from within or slightly behind the victim’s head. Victims are simultaneously subjected to predatory group stalking and harassment with surveillance technologies that include wiretapping , computer hacking, and listening devices installed in our homes. We once led productive lives, and some of us still do, but many of us now ﬁnd ourselves being defamed and falsely labeled as mentally ill or potential domestic terrorists. This in turn has resulted in many of us being blacklisted and prevented from employment, housing or medical care. Many victims live in chronic pain and illness. Some have lost hope and have committed suicide. Some believe this could well be a secret government program to target dissidents, whistleblowers, and other“undesirables.”If so, this would be in keeping with past government programs known to have targeted innocent people, such as COINTELPRO and MK-ULTRA. Mr. President, we respectfully request that you help the hundreds of thousands of people in America who are being subjected to these crimes against humanity which represent an egregious infringement of the civil rights and liberties upon which the United States was founded. At the same time, we feel it imperative to warn the general public that at any given moment, they too, may become victims of these crimes. Sincerely, The Board of Freedom From Covert Harassment and Surveillance (FFCHS) on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of covert crime survivors.

Filibuster Tactics in Peril If GOP Stalls, Reid Warns Washington A showdown looming, Republicans and Democrats groped for a compromise Monday over confirming stalled White House appointees in a dispute that threatened what little bipartisan cooperation remains in the U.S. Senate. All 100 senators were invited to a rare closed-door meeting in the Capitol’s Old Senate Chamber, down the hall from where they debate the issues of the day with the public and news media in attendance. Majority Leader Harry Reid insisted in advance that Republicans permit yes-or-no conﬁrmation votes on all seven of the nominees at issue. If they won’t, he declared, Democrats will change the Senate’s rules to strip them of their ability to ﬁlibuster. In a morning speech at the Center for American Progress, Reid said there was no room for a middle ground allowing votes on some but not all of the seven. But Republicans counter that a rules change made unilaterally by one party would profoundly alter
Senate Slowdowns In its purest form, a Senate delay can mean a classic filibuster — such as when Sen.

In the past half-century, the filibuster has evolved, as have other means of stalling votes without requiring an around-the-clock speech that defies human endurance. (AP)

Rules changes generally are made with a two-thirds vote of the Senate, meaning they must be bipartisan. “I guarantee you, it’s a decision that, if they actually go through with it, they will live to regret,” the Republican leader, Sen.

Nation The Protests’ Momentum
DAVE MARTIN (AP)
Civil rights groups, including an organization headed by the Rev. Al Sharpton, plan to hold prayer vigils and rallies Saturday in at least 100 cities to protest and demand that federal civil rights charges be filed. Some protests were held Monday, including in Los Angeles, where police began making arrests after about 80 protesters blocked traffic in Hollywood. Other rallies held Sunday in cities across the country were largely peaceful, news agencies reported. (T WP/AP)

AG Calls Killing of Teen ‘Unnecessary’ Washington With the acquittal of George Zimmerman continuing to reverberate nationwide, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that he shares concerns about “the tragic, unnecessary shooting death” of an unarmed black teenager in Florida last year, and he vowed to pursue a federal investigation into the matter. In a speech at the social action luncheon of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, Holder pledged that the Justice Department would work to “alleviate tensions, address community concerns and promote healing” in response to the case. “We are resolved, as you are,
to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents,” he said. Holder appeared at the Washington Convention Center, where the predominantly African-American sorority is celebrating the 100th

Today, Holder will travel to Florida to address the NAACP’s annual convention in Orlando, a short drive from the Sanford, Fla., courthouse where Zimmerman was found not guilty Saturday night of charges that he murdered teenager Trayvon Martin last year. At the White House, press secretary Jay Carney said President Barack Obama would have no comment about the investigation. NAACP leader Benjamin Jealous launched a petition late Saturday to urge the Justice Department to ﬁle civil rights charges against Zimmerman. Response to the petition crashed the NAACP website. Hours later, the Justice Department released a statement saying that its civil rights division still has an open investigation into Martin’s death, a probe it launched in March 2012. Working with the FBI, federal prosecutors are reviewing evidence to see whether the case can be prosecuted, the statement said. Among those calling for Justice Department action are three Democratic congressmen from New York: Charles Rangel, Hakeem Jeffries and Jerrold Nadler. “It is clear that Trayvon Martin would be alive today if George Zimmerman were not deeply prejudiced and did not perceive a young black kid walking through the neighborhood as a threat,” Nadler said.

limbo. In a hint of what lies ahead, Egypt’s military-backed interim government has already imposed new travel restrictions. That has spooked many who fear their visas won’t be renewed and they could be forced to leave Egypt. Many have their savings invested in businesses or simply can’t return to their war-ravaged cities. The backlash stems from support of the mainly Sunni Syrian opposition by Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, which offered aid to Syrians who ﬂed the violence in their homeland. With the country in chaos, Morsi’s critics are accusing Syrians of participating in the protests that call for him to be reinstated.

Salvage crews are working against time to remove the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise ship, which is steadily being crushed under its own weight on a granite seabed off the Tuscan island of Giglio in Italy. Ofﬁcials said Monday that if the attempt — which will probably take place in mid-September — fails, there won’t be a second chance. Nick Sloane, the leader of the operation, said the Concordia has compressed since it came to rest on the rocks Jan. 13, 2012, after ramming a jagged reef during a publicity stunt allegedly ordered by the captain; 32 people were killed. Sloane said experts would have one chance to pull the ship upright and ﬂoat it away to the mainland for demolition. “We cannot put it back” down and start over, Sloane said.

Are they buying them as fast as their budget allows, or do they take that long to build and Metro is getting them as fast as they can be built and delivered? I’m not sure “slowly” is the right word.

Signs of Change on H Street Deaf community wonders about its future in the area When businesses began sprouting up on H Street, they catered to a different type of urban pioneer. Their earliest patrons in the mid2000s were students from nearby Gallaudet University, tired of slogging to places like Adams Morgan only to frequent bars with little idea how to help them. And over time, H Street emerged as the city’s nexus of youth deaf culture. Now, deaf waiters work at restaurants. People walk up and down the street using American Sign Language. Bartenders know the sign for Jagermeister. Like many redeveloping communities, H Street has struggled to balance the desires of older, black residents and its burgeoning young, white population. The deaf culture adds a different, deaf-hearing element to this familiar tension, though progress is evident. But for all the area’s success, some can’t help but wonder what will happen to the deaf-friendly

atmosphere as the area becomes even more popular. “I’m hanging out there less and less,” said Richard Spiecker, a rising senior at Gallaudet. “It’s becoming too expensive.” Still, Spiecker and his friends welcome the changing street that ﬁrst welcomed them. For years, students received the same message: Stay inside the campus bubble. The outside neighborhood was an impoverished, dangerous place. “But we have students today who want to go out and be a part of the world,’’ said Fred Weiner,
the university’s community liaison. So H Street has become a selling point in the competitive world of college recruitment. The result is an unmistakable cultural footprint in the neighborhood. Nur Abdulle told the story of a panhandler who pulled a pen and paper out of his pocket, then scribbled: “Do you have a dollar?” Even the beggars have adapted. The ultimate dream is to be able to use the street’s emergence as a way to create a sustainable, deaffriendly neighborhood in D.C. Even now, there are signs of that cultural exchange.
Spiecker watched as Anthony Palmer, 22, a quarterback on the football team, recounted his experience at a barbershop Spiecker recommended, which happened to be all-black. Both students are white. “I didn’t know what to do,’’ Palmer said. “They told me to come over and it was all good.” “It’s the best,” Spiecker replied. “Now I never want to get my hair cut by anyone but a black barber on H Street.” “I don’t know if I ever want to leave D.C.,” Palmer added. “This is the deaf community right here.” ROBERT SAMUELS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bowing to vocal opposition, District planners have backed off a controversial proposal to eliminate long-standing requirements that developers in some areas include parking spaces in their projects. The decision not to wholly abandon “parking minimums” in outlying neighborhoods served by Metrorail and high-frequency bus lines comes as planners prepare to submit a wholesale rewrite of the city’s zoning code for approval by the Zoning Commission.

Golden Boys of Baseball
AP AND GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION
The Golden Age of Baseball came to an end about 50 years ago. Since then, the league has gone through expansion, endured a strike and dealt with a major steroid problem. Baseball has changed, but the recent influx of talented young ball players could mean another golden age is upon us. Three position players 21 or younger — the Nationals’ Bryce Harper, the Angels’ Mike Trout and the Orioles’ Manny Machado — will play in tonight’s All-Star game (8 p.m., Fox). This crop of phenoms resembles some of the greatest players from the Golden Age. JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)
GOLDEN AGE COMPARISON: WILLIE MAYS
GOLDEN AGE COMPARISON: MICKEY MANTLE
GOLDEN AGE COMPARISON: BROOKS ROBINSON
Why they’re alike: Mays is the best five-tool player of all time. Trout, meanwhile, had one of the best allaround seasons in baseball history last year. In 2012, the Angels outfielder batted .326 with 30 home runs, 83 RBIs, 129 runs and 49 stolen bases in 139 games, finishing second in the AL MVP voting. Mays became one of the youngest MVPs when he won as a 23-yearold in 1954. The Giants center fielder led the league in batting, slugging, OPS and triples that year.
Why they’re alike: Before Harper even reached the big leagues he was compared to Mantle, who was a baseball prodigy himself. Both made their major league debuts as teenagers. Harper’s hard-nosed style of play, athleticism and raw power resemble Mantle’s. In his career, the Yankees outfielder averaged a home run every 15.1 at-bats. This season, Harper has averaged one homer every 15.5 at-bats. Mantle lived up to his enormous hype as a teenage phenom. Harper, who at 20 will be playing in his second All-Star game tonight, seems on his way to doing the same.
Why they’re alike: Anyone who plays third for the Orioles will be compared to Robinson, who was the best defensive third baseman in baseball history. The Hall of Famer won 16 Gold Gloves. He also was the 1964 AL MVP, 1970 World Series MVP and an 18-time All-Star. Machado is on his way to his first Gold Glove. On top of making spectacular plays on a regular basis, he’s consistent. Among third basemen, Machado’s second in the AL in fielding percentage (.980) and leads the majors in double plays made. His Defensive WAR (2.7) is 1.0 better than anyone else at his position.
Making history: Last year, Harper was the youngest position player to play in an All-Star game. The outfielder went 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout. This year he’ll be the youngest player ever to start for the NL.
Making history: Machado is on pace to hit 66 doubles, which would be one shy of the single-season major league record. His 39 doubles is already more than Robinson ever hit in one season.
Surprising stat: Home runs hit before turning 20 Harper: 22 Mantle: 13
Surprising stat: Errors in first 147 games of career Machado: 11 Robinson: 16
Making history: Last year Trout, 21, became the youngest player to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in a single season. He needs 15 homers and nine steals in the second half to reach that feat in back-to-back years, something Mays did in 1956-57. Surprising stat: Batting average in first 271 games of career Trout: .312 Mays: .293

Selig: Game Is Cleaner Than Ever Commissioner backs baseball’s current drug-testing program Baseball With his staff pursuing yet another investigation into performanceenhancing drugs, Commissioner Bud Selig defended baseball’s drug-testing program on the eve of the All-Star game and insisted “this sport is cleaner than it’s ever been.” Selig declined to detail timing for decisions in the probe of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, accused of distributing performing-enhancing drugs. MLB could attempt to discipline former MVPs Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun along with other players. Baseball began drug testing for the 2003 season, added pen-

alties the following year, banned amphetamines in 2006 and started HGH blood testing last year. Critics said baseball didn’t move quickly enough. “People say, ‘Well, you were slow to react.’ We were not slow to react,”
Selig said Monday. “In fact, I heard that this morning, and it aggravated me all over again.” There were eight violations of the major league drug program last year, and All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera was among those
who served a 50-game suspension following a positive PEDs test. There have been no suspensions in the big leagues this year. During a question-and-answer session arranged by Politico, a question was sent by Will, identiﬁed as an 8-year-old in Los Angeles. He asked: “How old will I be when ... you can say that there are no more cheaters in baseball, not one?” “Will, this is what I would say to you,” Selig responded. “I used to object way back when, when people would talk about steroids. They’re not a baseball problem or a football problem or a basketball problem. They’re a societal problem.” Selig, who turns 79 on July 30, has said repeatedly he intends to retire, only to change his mind. His current term runs through December 2014, and he has made no effort to start planning for a successor. RONALD BLUM (AP)

If you’re scared of open-water swimming, don’t read “Open Water Swimming Manual” ($16, Vintage Books). Author Lynne Cox is an accomplished athlete who’s held the speed record for crossing the English Channel, but she has more horror stories than helpful tips. A full 40 pages are devoted to “Dangerous Marine Organisms,” starting with bristle worms. Add in seasickness, hypothermia and sinus infections, and it’s unclear why anyone does this sport.
“You’re burning more calories, you’re getting better as a swimmer, you’re building strength,” says the 51-year-old, who notes that the challenge can be as much mental as it is physical. “The idea of black water, cold water, unknown, swimming

A Stroke of Pluck D.C. swimmers brave the Potomac River to get some experience with open-water laps Sick of swimming pools? Try a much bigger body of water: the Potomac River.
The Concept “It’s a different element to not have anything around you, to be completely engulfed in nature,” says Denis Crean, who has been racing in oceans, rivers and lakes for the past 15 years. He was frustrated that there were no places close to home where he could train for those races. So he created WaveOne Swimming (waveoneswimming.com), which — for the past three summers — has been helping Washingtonians sample open-water swims Thursday nights at National Harbor.
The Atmosphere Everyone wants to know if the Potomac is clean enough for swimming. That includes Crean and Potomac Valley Swimming Safety Committee Chairman Kurt Thiel, who continuously monitor the water and cancel swims if there’s a risk of contamination. (Bacteria levels fluctuate with rainfall, and it’s not always safe to dive in.) “No one here has ever had any issues,” Crean says. “That’s probably because if we don’t think it’s right, we cancel. We’re not going to put people’s health in jeopardy.” That rule also applies to bad weather, which is why WaveOne calls off swims if there’s a threat of dangerous storms or poor visibility. But part of the thrill of openwater swimming is facing whatever challenges Mother Nature delivers, be it ﬂoating branches or choppy water. And there’s always at least one certiﬁed lifeguard in a kayak,

as well as a handful of spotters in boats and on boards in the water, in case of emergency. “As long as the condition’s safe, we’re gonna go, because we want people to experience wind, currents and all those things,” Crean says. “When they get into a race, they need to be prepared.”
or in distress, you’ll probably be in a rescue tube and ﬂoating on your back in a hurry,” Thiel says.) After the instructions, everyone jumps into the water from the dock. Most swimmers head out on their own. For those who like a more structured swim, coach Tammy Lowengrub often leads drills, such as alternating between easy and fast laps. Sometimes she has the athletes practice race starts to get used to being knocked around by other swimmers. “We’ll get t hem bunched together and blow a whistle, and then they’ll take off,” Crean says.
workt it ou
The WaveOne crew uses buoys to set up a 300- to 400-meter course off National Harbor’s North Pier. People start arriving about 30 minutes prior to the announced swim time to check in, socialize and listen to safety instructions. One note Thiel emphasizes is how swimmers can let him know they’re OK when he approaches in his kayak. They’re taught to put a hand on their swim cap and hold it there for three seconds. (“If I even have a hint that you’re distressed
The Workout Open-water swimming is always tougher than laps in a pool, says triathlete and nuclear engineer Tom Hull, who lives in Arlington.
Safety officer Kurt Thiel has advice for alleviating the fear of taking the plunge: “Get your faces in the water after you get in. It starts the mammalian diving reflex. Your pulse rate will come down, your breathing rate will come under control, and your chest will not be cramping up.”
in the dark, you see nothing. That’s scary stuff.” Now in his third year of training with WaveOne, Hull says he’s overcome that fear and worked his way up to a 6.24-mile swim.
The Crowd An average of 70 triathletes, competitive swimmers and Special Olympians come out to splash around the Potomac on Thursday nights. But there aren’t any beginners: To participate, you must be able to cover 750 meters in a pool or 400 to 500 meters in the open water without stopping. “Within 10, 20 yards we know if you cannot do it,” says Crean, who will pull novices out of the water if necessary. “We don’t want to divert our resources to one person.” (Not ready? WaveOne offers pool clinics throughout the year to help wannabe open-water swimmers get in shape.) After spending time together in the drink, it’s time for some drinks. Everyone dries off and heads to a nearby bar once the sun goes down. TR ACY KRULIK (FOR E XPRESS)

Divorced From A New Reality
BEN CLAASSEN III
I’m 28 years old and divorced after three years of marriage — it was a big mistake. I was the first to the altar out of all of my friends, and now all of them are starting to think about marriage. Two of my closest friends are probably going to get engaged over the summer, but I can tell they don’t want to let me be involved in it, or they think I’m some “curse” or something. How can I stop feeling like damaged goods and just be one of the girls again? ODD DIVORCEE OUT
My Wife, the Public Menace My wife seems to be getting more difficult to be out in public. Recently, she verbally abused a waiter after one too many screwups. I realize I’m often walking on eggshells when we’re out, knowing that she might be demeaning or condescending to others. She was never meek, but this is troubling to me. But, of course, I don’t want the explosion if I bring it up. CRINGING Anytime a spouse is “walking on eggshells” — and it’s not literal, like before I clean my kitchen — it’s cause to be concerned. It suggests that there is, at best, an unbalanced dynamic that’s causing stress and, at worst, a truly abusive situation. We’ve all been in that indigestion-inducing situation of someone being a jackanapes to a server, but this sounds
Stick to the Mud
like your wife is being downright beastly. (I also wonder how she treats you behind closed doors.) It’s a conversation you simply must have — she could be depressed, anxious or any number of things, but you (and her waiters) deserve better. “Lately I’ve felt that something’s getting under your skin” is a good start; seek out professional support if you need it.
Just as people with infants can no longer keep up the same stilettoto-sweatpants ratio as people without kids, people who are recently divorced will not necessarily be privy to as many giddy engagement conversations as those who are happily married. The trick is not taking this personally. It’s natural that they might feel awkward discussing marriage as the great American utopia with someone whose experience with it was more akin to a nightmare. It also might make them anxious to reﬂect on how things changed so quickly for you. Accept this, but be open in showing your joy for them and the fact that you’re not against a good boutonniere discussion.

Jennifer Pharr Davis relied on smarts and stamina to hike the Appalachian Trail
began with her childhood, which she spent exploring mountains as well as her own physical peaks. Years of tennis and basketball paved the way for her hiking exploits, Davis says. She learned how to work through obstacles on her own in singles matches and developed a “never-quit mentality” by chasing balls. When she started competing in marathons and triathlons, she discovered her passion for endurance. “I did a marathon, but my limit wasn’t at the end. I did an Ironman, but my limit wasn’t at the end. I found my limit at the end of the Appalachian Trial,” says Davis, who completed her ﬁrst trip along

Jennifer Pharr Davis uses hiking poles to minimize the pressure on her joints.
Hot on the Trail Jennifer Pharr Davis knows every inch of the Appalachian Trail, and she’s particularly fond of some of the parts where it winds near Washington. Most folks know about Harpers Ferry, where she had a book signing over the weekend, but that’s only one sight in what she calls “a walking museum.” There’s also a monument to George Washington that she thinks looks like a milk bottle (in Boonsboro, Md.) and the Bears Den Hostel (in Bluemont, Va.) in the middle of the 13-mile trail section nicknamed “The Roller Coaster.”
the length of the legendary path the summer after her college graduation. After setting the women’s record on the trail in the summer of 2008, Davis was convinced she could go even faster. So she started seriously training, which involved hikes with heavy packs, core work and weightlifting. Davis added yoga to improve her ﬂexibility and to counteract the stress she was putting on her body. Part of her strategy was to stick with hiking rather than running —
an unorthodox approach for the trail. “I knew I’d have to put in longer days this way, but I wasn’t as likely to sustain an injury,” Davis says. “Hiking is relatively low-impact. It’s not a contact sport unless you fall, which I try not to do.” Her theory was tested just days into the hike, when she was hobbled by excruciating shin splints. It’s a common woe for Appalachian Trail veterans, however, so Davis accepted the pain as a rite of passage. “I thought as long as I got out there, my legs would eventually get better,” says Davis, noting that the setback forced her to pace herself. Since giving birth eight months ago, Davis has been forced to slow down again. But she still has trail fever: Her new goal is to hike in all 50 states (and D.C.) with her husband and baby. It ﬁts in with the mission of her North Carolina-based Blue Ridge Hiking Company, which specializes in guiding women and children, who tend to be less conﬁdent on trails. “As they become more comfortable, they can go longer, and go by themselves,” Davis says.

JENNIFER PHARR DAVIS
Think you’ve had a busy summer? You won’t after you meet 30-yearold Jennifer Pharr Davis. In June and July of 2011, she hiked all 2,181 miles of the Appalachian Trail in 46 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes. With that accomplishment, the North Carolina native broke the previous record — set by a male runner — and proved that ladies can come first in outdoor expertise. “It’s not big muscles and speed,” Davis says. “It’s intelligence, and adapting to nature, because you’re never in control on the trail.” She recounts the hike in her new book, “Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph,” which she’ll read from tonight at Politics and Prose. For Davis, the journey started well before that moonlit moment atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin, the northern terminus of the trail. It

standing on one leg automatically becomes tougher. “It’s really challenging your balance and core when you take the barre out,” Ligorria says. The temperature is another test, says My-Van Nguyen, 34, who called the class “heated Lava Barre.” But the devoted student didn’t mind sweating Tuesday because she knew a dip in the pool was coming next.
“It’s a good motivator during the workout,” the Arlington resident says. Although curious stares can make it a bit more embarrassing to pulse legs up and out or do some pelvis tucking, Nguyen doesn’t mind as long as she’s helping expose more people to her favorite kind of workout. Katie Ginsburg, 28, wasn’t lured by the promise of a dip in the deep end as much as the scenery swap: “It’s nice to have something different to look at.” When Price told the class to roll on their backs after a strenuous butt-toning section, the dozen women in class got a view of the bright blue sky along with their glute stretch. It’s easy to see how someone could get used to this, says Price, who’d like to offer more weekly pop-ups — by the pool and beyond. Later this month, Lava Barre will also launch a series outside in Rosslyn. “We’re always changing up classes, so clients are being challenged in cool ways,” Price says. And they have a new way to cool off, too. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

What would Sam Owl, 34, normally be doing in Franklin Park at 5:30 p.m.? “Walking through it to get to the Metro,” says the Arlingtonian, who spent last Wednesday evening smacking the ground with weighted sticks instead. About 40 other people were doing the same thing as part of the first installment of Workout Wednesdays, a new initiative by the Downtown DC Business Improvement District to liven up the green space. “It could be so much more than some place for eating lunch,” says the BID’s Karyn Le Blanc. A rotating roster of free exercise classes led by instructors from Crunch Fitness will continue weekly through Sept. 25. Participants can keep up their energy with water and fruit compliments of Freshii and get advice on workout attire from City Sports representatives. For details, go to downtowndc.org. V.H.

More Than a Walk In Franklin Park
This is XX0164 1x1
To celebrate Lava Barre’s first birthday, co-owners Lauren Price and Vanessa Ligorria threw a pool party. They liked hanging out on the deck so much that they decided to ditch their Arlington fitness studio to hold class there — at least once a week. That’s how Pop-Up by the Pool started last Tuesday at the Capitol Skyline Hotel. The aquatic facility is a hot spot for weekend bashes, but this is the ﬁrst time it’s tried to make a splash with an exercise program. “What goes together better than ﬁtness and a pool? I thought it was a great idea,” says hotel general manager Jeff Ragonese, who’s considering installing a barre on the 17,000-square-foot pool deck if the concept works out. For Price and Ligorria — and their students — the new venue is a way to refresh their workout

No Rules? No Problem
The co-conspirators behind a fast-growing D.C. theater company stage a variety show
For Art’s Sake Last week, Jay-Z performed “Picasso Baby,” a track off his new album, “Magna Carta … Holy Grail,” at New York’s Pace Gallery. He lip-synched the song to a small crowd for six hours, part video shoot, part performance art. Jay has positioned this record as art on par with classical and modern works of all mediums. The cover references a 16th-century sculpture by Italian artist Battista di Domenico By Shauna Lorenzi, and “Picasso” Miller is stuffed with enough art-world name-drops to surprise me with the rapper’s legitimate passion for the stuff. He’ll also create six works to accompany the record’s release. This was the first, even if it was kinda stolen. Three hours into Jay’s performance, Marina Abramovic showed up and pressed her forehead to his, as big an art blessing as he could hope for. She invented endurance-asperformance; in 2010, she sat silently for 736 hours at the Museum of Modern Art for “The Artist Is Present.” Jay-Z has been raising rap’s game since his 1996 debut, “Reasonable Doubt.” He gets respect because he’s real. He hustled hard to get to this place, which could be off-putting in its weird bravado but isn’t. It’s transformation and experimentation. It’s art. Connect with Shauna and Sound Bets on Twitter: @Shaunajmiller
Comedy If the daring young No Rules Theatre Company is now showing something called “The No Rules Show,” what can audiences expect? “We’re calling it half ‘The Judy Garland Show,’ half Conan O’Brien,” says Brian Sutow, the co-artistic director of No Rules. Joshua Morgan, the other artistic director, is the host, playing piano and interviewing guests. So it’s a variety show, starring Morgan, directed by Sutow. Only with a twist, because the puckish, upbeat Morgan is such a wild card. He explains the time he and Sutow were performing their own mature-themes comic cabaret, “Assembly Required: How to Write,
Produce and Stage a Musical – The Musical!” at the Capital Fringe Festival. They billed it with cautionary warnings, yet at one performance, a family showed up with two kids. Morgan and Sutow glanced at each other, thinking quickly about what to do. “My eyes were totally like, ‘Get ready for it!’ ” Morgan cackles. A moment later, Morgan was in one of the kids’ laps. “That’s a perfect example,” he says, “of, like …” “What?” the bemused Sutow interjects. “Us responding differently to situations?” Sutow and Morgan met in 2005 as freshmen at the University of North Carolina’s School of the Arts, and at ﬁrst they tried writing musicals together. They abandoned that but pursued just about everything else in a program that didn’t box them into narrow tracks. T hey a re
Host (and wild card) Joshua Morgan will play piano and interview guests for “The No Rules Show.”
‘No Rules’ Guests Wednesday: Ryan Bos and Bernie Delia from Capital Pride Thursday: Local NBC anchor Barbara Harrison and comic Jamel Johnson Friday: Comedian Sara Armour and actress Qurrat Ann Kadwani Saturday: Host Joshua Morgan’s mom, Jennifer Kohl, and Ryan Hunter Mitchell, lead singer of the D.C. band Shark Week Sunday: Comedian Matty Litwack
hyphenates: Morgan decides that Sutow is an actor-writer-producer. He identiﬁes himself as an actorwriter-teacher. “We trained as actors,” Sutow says. “But Joshua was always directing, and I was always writing. We knew we didn’t have to compartmentalize.” No Rules is a two-city troupe. Their seasons are split between D.C. (where it is concluding the ﬁrst season of a three-year resi-
dency deal at Arlington’s Signature Theatre) and Winston-Salem, N.C. The No Rules projects have ranged from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” to a dark comedy called “Suicide, Inc.,” and not every show plays in both cities. For the current variety show bearing the company name, scheduled guests include local performers (see box). “There is a lot of room for liberties,” Sutow says. “It’s very scripted and very improvised.” “I was thinking how amazing it would be to have Paula Deen on the show,” Morgan says. “That’s what I love about No Rules,” Sutow says, “and something we haven’t really stepped away from so far: a w illingness to t r y a ny t h i ng once.” NELSON PRESSLEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

They’ve Got the ‘Magic’ Inside A new documentary tracks quirky, aspiring David Copperfields Film Review It’s not impossible to imagine that one of the earnest, slightly gawky teens and pre-teens who are profiled in “Magic Camp,” a documentary about an intensive, weeklong summer camp for aspiring magicians, might one day grow up to become a working magician. After all, as Judd Ehrlich’s charming portrait of Tannen’s Magic Camp notes, previous attendees of the acclaimed suburban Philadelphia program have included David Blaine and David Copperfield. Beneath their skill and polish, both of those adult artists still exude the same geekily singular focus that we see in Ehrlich’s unformed subjects. They include Jonah Conlin, a dyslexic though hyperverbal 12-year-
There are many shows written about D.C. but very few written for the people who live here — the ones who know, for instance, that Farragut Square doesn’t look like an office park and there is no Meridian Park Metro. But with his new Web series “Cap South,” filmmaker Rob Raffety is trying to change that: He is, after all, a former Hill staffer, and he still lives in Arlington. “Cap South” (streaming on YouTube and capsouththeseries.com) follows the antics of ﬁctional congresswoman Gracie Todd Englewright and her oddball staff as they

old; 19-year-old Brian Woodbridge, who has Tourette’s syndrome; 18-year-old high school dropout Reed Spool; and Zoe Reiches, a
16-year-old in a Wonder Woman costume who is one of only seven girls in a class of 103. If the ﬁlm’s subjects seem a mite odd in one way or another, they’re really no different from any other adolescent trying to ﬁgure out who he or she is. And that is the ﬁlm’s true theme, even more than the mastery of magic technique. Though Ehrlich spends a lot of time watching these young magicians hone their art in preparation for the camp’s big competition, he also shows this group of young people to be just that: people. “Magic Camp” is a wonderful companion to “Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay,” in which the famous prestidigitator reminisces about his magical education. But “Magic Camp” carries an even more valuable lesson. As one of the counselors tells his students: “Revel in your quirkiness.” That’s pretty good advice for anyone, magic nerd or not.
