Border Crisis Foreseen by Some Warning signs were there before spike in child immigrants hit
Illegal Crossings Decline The flood of children crossing the Mexican border illegally and without their parents has slowed down in recent weeks, two senior Obama administration officials said Friday. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas have found fewer than 500 children crossing the border illegally this week, the officials said. Last month, agents arrested as many as 2,000 child immigrants a week. (AP)
Washington Nearly a year before President Barack Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Texas, and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children. Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. In a 41-page report to the Department of Homeland Security, the team

from the University of Texas at El Paso raised alarms about the federal government’s capacity to manage a situation that was expected
to grow worse. The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the Obama administration over the past two years as a surge of Central American minors has crossed into south Texas illegally. More than 57,000 have entered the United States this year, swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared. “What happened this year was … off-the-charts different,” said Cecilia Munoz, Obama’s domes-
tic policy adviser. “Nobody could have predicted the scale of the increase we saw this year,” she added. “The minute we saw it, we responded in an aggressive way.” But top ofﬁcials at the White House and the State Department had been warned repeatedly of the potential for a further explosion in the number of migrant children since the crisis began escalating two years ago, according to people familiar with internal discussions. “There were warning signs, operational folks raising red ﬂags to high levels in terms of this being a potential issue,” said one former senior federal law enforcement ofﬁcial.

Ariz. Execution on Hold
Columbus, Ohio A few weeks before their prom king’s death, students at an Ohio high school had attended an assembly on narcotics that warned about the dangers of heroin and prescription painkillers. But it was one of the world’s most widely accepted drugs that killed Logan Stiner — a powdered form of caffeine so potent that as little as a single teaspoon can be fatal. The teen’s sudden death in May has focused attention on the unregulated powder and drawn a warning from federal health authorities urging consumers to avoid it. A minuscule amount packs a punch.
A mere 1 ⁄ 16 of a teaspoon can contain about 200 milligrams of caffeine, roughly the equivalent of two large cups of coffee. That means a heaping teaspoon could kill, said Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. Stiner, a wrestler, had more than 70 micrograms of caffeine per milliliter of blood in his system, as much as 23 times the amount found in a typical coffee or soda drinker, according to the county coroner. His mother has said she was unaware her son took caffeine powder. “I don’t think any of us really knew that this stuff was out there,” said Jay Arbaugh, superintendent of the Keystone Local Schools.
A federal appeals court on Saturday granted Arizona death row inmate Joseph Rudolph Wood’s request to postpone his scheduled Wednesday execution, putting it on hold until prison officials reveal details on the two-drug combination that will be used. (AP)

Unease in Ky. Over City-Funded Gas Private retailers cry socialism as town opens its own station Somerset, Ky. The city hall in Somerset, Ky., ventured into the retail gas business Saturday, opening a municipal-run ﬁlling station that supporters call a beneﬁt for motorists and critics denounce as a taxpayer-supported swipe at the free market. The Somerset Fuel Center opened to the public selling regular unleaded gas for $3.36 a gallon, a bit lower than some nearby competitors. The mayor says the station was created in response to years of grumbling by townspeople about stubbornly high gas prices in Somerset, a city of about 11,000 near Lake Cumberland, a popular ﬁshing and boating haven. The venture got a thumbs-up from customers, but unnerved

‘Only God Saved Our Souls’ Gaza town reduced to rubble in bloodiest day of conﬂict so far
All night, the people of Gaza heard rumors of what was happening in Shijaiyah, the town glowing orange on the horizon, the scene of the most intense Israeli bombardment of the 13-day-old conﬂict. Then, during a brief cease-ﬁre, they got a closer look. After a few hundred yards, Shijaiyah’s main boulevard became impassable for vehicles because of shredded trees and downed power lines. House after house showed signs of heavy damage and ﬁres from sustained shelling by tanks and artillery. The earliest responders found bodies in the streets. Reporters who arrived in the mid-afternoon during the ceaseﬁre, arranged by the Red Crescent humanitarian organization, witnessed chaotic scenes of ambulance drivers struggling to ﬁll their bays with wounded. In 10 minutes, on one street, seven stretchers were

Palestinian civilians flee from the carnage Sunday in Gaza’s Shijaiyah district.
U.N. Meeting: U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon called Israel’s latest incursion “atrocious,” and said it must do far more to protect civilians. Several diplomats said the U.N. Security Council would hold an emergency session Sunday at 9:30 p.m. local time at the request of council member Jordan on the situation in Gaza. Kerry caught on camera: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was caught on a hot mic ahead of an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry says, then repeats it. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.” It’s an apparent reference to Israel’s insistence that its incursion into the region would be limited. “It’s escalating significantly,” the person on the phone replies. The conversation was then aired by “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
carried out of the rubble. Some of the injured looked near death. The Gaza Health Ministry, run by Hamas, says that at least 70 people died in the Shijaiyah offensive, including at least 17 children and 14 women. Israeli military ofﬁcials said that Shijaiyah was an important and legitimate target, that the area is a stronghold for militants, a launchpad for constant rocket ﬁre at Israel. But Sami Abu Zohri, a Hamas spokesman, called the Israeli offensive in Shijaiyah “a massacre against civilians and a war crime.” He promised that “it will not break the people’s will.” Jalal Ghoula, an unemployed police ofﬁcer, said that residents had been warned by the Israelis to evacuate but that many would leave the area brieﬂy and then return. “One of our neighbors ran out of his house and left behind his son,” a 4-year-old, Ghoula said, explaining the man was confused and terriﬁed. “He forgot him!” Ghoula left on foot with 32 relatives, including 19 children. “Only God saved our souls,” he said.

The tunnels below have since crumbled, but the threat still looms on northern Iraq’s surrounding plains. When advancing Islamic State militants launched mortar attacks in late June, nearly all of Bakhdida’s 50,000 residents fled overland to Irbil, the capital of the Iraqi region of Kurdistan, for protection. In recent days, most people have come back to their homes. But dire

water and fuel shortages, electrical blackouts and a lack of work are strangling returnees who must also grapple with the mental strain of living within firing range of al-Qaeda-inspired Sunni jihadists. With Iraq at risk of fracturing along sectarian fault lines, local leaders fear the loss of one of the world’s oldest Christian communities and its heritage as more and
more residents move to Kurdish cities and neighboring countries. On Friday, the exodus was accelerated when the Islamic State decreed that Christian holdouts in the city of Mosul must convert to Islam or pay a tax — with death as a “last resort.’’ Bashar Toma, a 50-year-old mason, was among those preparing to leave. Last month, a pair of Islamic State mortars crashed onto the roof of the six-bedroom home Toma had painstakingly built to accommodate his children. In the morning, Toma would move his family to a cramped apartment in Irbil. “It hurts my heart to leave,” he said, “but I fear it will only get worse here.” J A S O N M O T L A G H (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The Blue Line’s Blues
By this time next summer, after Metro’s soon-to-open Silver Line has been operating for a year, the system will be handling 780,000-plus passenger-trips each weekday, or 4 to 5 percent more than the current load, the transit authority predicts. “It’s a big, big jump,” says James Hughes, Metro’s director of intermodal strategic planning. “And people will notice it.” Some people will notice it more than others — especially Blue Line riders boarding at stations south of Rosslyn during peak travel periods. Their waits for trains will be longer starting this week, when Metro is operating “simulated service” on the Silver Line, and will continue from Saturday, when the new line is scheduled to open for passengers. The tunnel under the river between Rosslyn and D.C. can safely accommodate only 26 trains per hour, Metro says. Currently, 19 inbound Orange trains and seven inbound Blue trains use the tunnel each hour during peak periods. With the new line, something has to give. The solution that Metro has come up with is to move 10 inbound Silver trains, 11 inbound Orange trains and ﬁve inbound Blue trains through the tunnel each hour during peak times. That will mean two fewer trains per hour for Blue Line commuters heading into D.C. from stations south of Rosslyn. In transit parlance, the time between trains is known as “a headway.” Under the present peak schedule, south of Rosslyn, the hourly

What About the Orange Line? The Silver Line will also mean a reduction of trains for Orange Line commuters boarding at the three stations west of East Falls Church: West Falls Church, Dunn Loring and Vienna. The number of trains leaving Vienna each hour during the morning rush will decrease from 19 to 11, Metro says. Other current Orange Line riders headed into D.C. from the west will see more trains during the peak period since they can take either Orange or Silver line trains. (T WP)
Blue Line headways are six minutes, 12 minutes, six minutes, 12 minutes, six minutes, 12 minutes and six minutes — for a total of seven trains each hour. Metro plans to switch to entirely 12-minute headways in that stretch, reducing the number of trains to ﬁve per hour. This won’t be the ﬁrst time that there’s been a service reduction for Blue Line riders south of Rosslyn.
Two summers ago, those commuters saw 10 trains per hour during peak periods. Then Metro scaled back that number to the current seven per hour. Three were redesignated as Yellow Line trains (which cross the river on the Yellow Line bridge, south of Rosslyn), which was dubbed “Rush Plus” service. “We didn’t want to shock riders with this reduced realignment of service all at once” by suddenly cutting the number of trains from 10 to ﬁve with the arrival of the Silver Line, says Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. Metro has been promoting an alternative commuting route for inbound, peak-period Blue Line riders who board south of Arlington Cemetery. If the next Blue Line train is 12 minutes away, Metro says, riders should instead consider taking the next-arriving Yellow Line train. In many instances, Metro says, the trip will take less or the same amount of time as it would if the rider waited for a Blue Line train. PAUL DUGGAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Washington They are the building blocks of the global economy, 20 million big steel boxes sloshing across oceans on mammoth container ships. Starting today, the f irst of 18 dented outcasts are set to be stacked in a dug-out District basement, turning a deteriorating student group house into an experiment in creating eye-catching housing, fast and on the cheap. Among the questions raised by the effort: Can hundreds of thousands of discarded sea containers, long talked up by designers, really
help create more affordable housing, or is it mostly a gimmick? And just how do you bring humanity to the conﬁnes of an 8-by-40 foot box? If the economics work, the architects on the project have bigger dreams, including ﬂoating hundreds of sea container apartments on a barge in the Potomac and creating a village on the river to serve Georgetown’s homeless. First, though, things have to go smoothly this week in a booming swath of D.C. just down the street from Catholic University, where theology graduate Matthew Grace, 31, and his business partner Sean Joiner, 31, are living with the anxietyinducing results of a decision they made in February.

“We don’t want people to become vigilantes, but it is nice that they took action.” — D.C. Police Sgt. James Boteler, after a posse of about 10 people chased down an alleged purse-snatcher Friday in D.C.’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood. The suspect was eventually tackled as he tried to hide under a car and held until police arrived.
Before his Rolex watch became the talk of Richmond, before it was known that a wheeling-dealing businessman had picked up the catering bill for his daughter’s wedding, former Gov. Bob McDonnell was known as a family man who got things done for Virginia. To beat the public corruption charges against him at next week’s trial, he will have to convince jurors that reputation was not a farce. In recent court ﬁlings, McDonnell’s defense attorneys have written that their client’s character will be the “centerpiece of his defense.”
The amount of extra money Virginia will pay to help cover the estimated cost of Arlington’s Columbia Pike streetcar project. Arlington’s County Board voted 3-2 Saturday to forgo federal funding and the requirements that go along with it, which should speed the project — slated for completion by 2020 — by as much as a year and save the county at least $25 million.

McDonnell’s Character on Trial Defense says former governor’s credibility trumps the evidence

From Shipping Container to Apartment
Defense attorneys contend that former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s character should give the jury reasonable doubt.
They asked permission to call 10 character witnesses to testify that McDonnell is a good person. And they proposed jurors be told, in part, that “evidence of good character alone may create a reasonable doubt as to a defendant’s guilt, although without it the other evidence would be convincing.”
“There is no question that the ‘elusive quality of credibility’ is the most important factor in this case,” defense attorneys wrote. “If the jury believes Mr. McDonnell, then it will not — and cannot — convict him on any charge.” Prosecutors asked a court to limit the defense to just six character witnesses — three each for the former governor and his wife. While the judge declined to impose a limit in advance, he said he would likely limit the defense to ﬁve character witnesses each at the trial, which begins July 28. Prosecutors have also attacked the characterization of McDonnell as a squeaky-clean public servant, arguing he took steps to hide the extravagant gifts given by Jonnie R. Williams Sr. and others.
on CUA, the acronym for The Catholic University of America — the container apartment is a chance to make a beautiful and practical improvement to the neighborhood. “It’s going to make the container feel like it’s not this long corridor. It’s a full explosion into the outdoors,” said Davies, 28. The containers will be on three levels, six containers per level, with a cellar unit. Each of the four ﬂoors is designed as a single apartment, each with six bedrooms and six bathrooms. The project backers won’t say how much they’re spending overall or charging for rent. The apartments are open to all, but are being grabbed up by students from Catholic because of the convenience, Price said. MICHAEL L ARIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Backstory The charges: Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were charged in January in a 14-count indictment that alleges they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to Richmond area businessman Jonnie R. Williams Sr., the ex-CEO of a dietary supplement company. The details: Prosecutors allege the McDonnells arranged meetings for Williams with state health officials and promoted his company’s products and, in exchange, Williams lavished the couple with money and gifts, including golf outings and expensive apparel. The case: The McDonnells have pleaded not guilty. To win convictions on the public corruption charges, prosecutors must prove the couple performed or agreed to perform “official” acts in exchange for Williams’ largesse. (T WP)

Russia’s ‘Moment of Truth’ Video of a rocket launcher — with one surface-to-air missile missing — leaving the likely launch site. Imagery that shows the firing. Calls claiming credit for the strike. Recordings that may reveal a cover-up at the crash scene. There’s a powerful amount of circumstantial evidence that points toward Russia-supported rebels in eastern Ukraine being responsible for shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, with the Kremlin complicit in the deaths of nearly 300 passengers and crew members, Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday. “This is the moment of truth for Russia,” Kerry said. “Russia is supporting these separatists. Russia is arming these separatists. Russia is training these separatists, and Russia has not yet done the things necessary in order to try to bring them under control.” In a round of television interviews Sunday, Kerry cited a mix of U.S. and Ukrainian intelligence and social media reports that he said “obviously points a very clear ﬁnger at the separatists” for ﬁring the missile that brought the plane down. “We picked up the imagery of this launch,” Kerry said. “We know the trajectory. We know where it
VADIM GHIRDA (AP)
On Sunday, a pro-Russia rebel guards a train holding the bodies of plane victims.
Rebels Take Control of Bodies Armed rebels in eastern Ukraine took control Sunday of nearly 200 bodies recovered from the downed Malaysia jetliner, and Ukrainian officials said the rebels took the dead away from workers by force. U.S. and European leaders demanded that Russian President Vladimir Putin force the rebels to give international investigators full access to the crash site amid a wave of outrage over how the bodies of the victims are being handled, as well as fears that the rebels could be tampering with evidence. “Drunken separatists are stacking bodies into the back of trucks, removing materials from the site,” Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday. Donetsk rebel leader Alexander Borodai said the recovered bodies would remain in four refrigerated train cars in the rebel-held town of Torez, 9 miles from the crash site, until the arrival of an international aviation delegation. (AP)
came from. We know the timing, and it was exactly at the time that this aircraft disappeared from the radar. We also know from voice identiﬁcation that the separatists were bragging about shooting it down afterward.”
In one set of calls, said by Ukrainian security services to have been recorded shortly after the plane was hit, a prominent rebel commander, Igor Bezler, tells a Russian military intelligence ofﬁcer that rebel forces shot down a plane.
On Sunday, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, released a statement saying experts had authenticated the calls. A new set of recordings apparently made Friday also appears to implicate rebels in an attempted cover-up at the crash site. In one exchange, a man identified as the leader of the rebel Vostok Battalion, Alexander Khodakovsky, states that two recording devices are being held by the head of intelligence of the insurgency’s military commander. The commander is then heard ordering the militiaman to ensure no outsiders, including an international observation team near the crash site, get hold of any material. The man identiﬁed as Khodakovsky says he is pursuing inquiries about the black boxes under instructions from “our high-placed friends … in Moscow.” In another conversation with a rebel representative at the crash site who reports ﬁnding an orange box marked as a satellite navigation box, Khodakovsky is purported to order that the object be hidden. U.S. and Ukrainian authorities have been at the forefront of accusations that the separatists, aided by Russia, are responsible. Russian President Vladimir Putin and other Russian ofﬁcials have blamed the government in Ukraine for creating the situation and atmosphere in which the plane was downed, but have yet to directly address the allegations that the separatists were responsible or were operating with technical assistance from Moscow.

An Agonizing Wait To Bury the Dead Families of the victims now face new agony — watching the fate of their loved ones’ remains play out on international TV, as rebels limit access to the crash scene. Azlin Yakob, 43, said she is holding out hope that her sister’s body will be found. Azrina Yakob, pictured above, was a flight attendant for Malaysia Airlines. “At least — hopefully! — we can still bring back her remains and give her a proper burial,” Azlin said. The wait has disrupted the traditional burial practices of some communities. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Saved, Again It sounds too surreal to be true, but multiple media outlets are reporting that Dutch cyclist Maarten de Jonge — who was scheduled to fly on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 but decided to reschedule for a later date — had also been set to fly on Malaysia Flight 370, which disappeared over the Indian Ocean in March. In both cases, de Jonge — who travels for bike races — ended up changing his flight at the last minute. (E XPRESS)
The Blame Game Someone associated with the AllRussia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Co. attempted to alter the Russian Wikipedia entry on the Malaysia Airlines crash, Time magazine reports.

No One Catches McIlroy 25-year-old holds off Garcia and Fowler for two-shot victory
British media reported that Rory McIlroy’s father, Gerry, and three of his friends a decade ago placed a combined bet of 400 pounds (now $680) on McIlroy winning the Claret Jug before he turned 26. The odds were 500-1, so the syndicate stands to collect 200,000 pounds, or about $340,000. (AP)
British Open Rory McIlroy had to work a little harder, sweat a little more. No matter. Just like his other two majors, this British Open was never really in doubt.
Leaderboard Sun. -1 -6 -5 -7 -7 -6
Final -17 -15 -15 -13 -12 -12
Staked to a six-shot lead going into the ﬁnal round, McIlroy turned back brief challenges with key birdies around the turn and a majestic drive at just the right moment to close with a 1-under 71 and complete a wireto-wire victory at Royal Liverpool. In another major lacking drama over the ﬁnal hour, what brought the British Open to life was the potential of its champion. McIlroy won the U.S. Open by eight shots. He won the PGA Championship by eight shots. And with his two-shot victory over Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler, the 25-year-old from Northern Ireland joined some elite company beyond the names on that silver Claret Jug. Jack Nicklaus (23) and Tiger Woods (24) are the only other players since 1934 to win three majors before age 25. “I’ve really found my passion

again for golf,” McIlroy said. “Not that it ever dwindled, but it’s what I think about when I get up in the morning. It’s what I think about when I go to bed. I just want to be the best golfer that I can be. And I know if I can do that, then trophies like this are within my capability.” McIlroy put an end to this major with a powerful drive down the fair-
way at the par-5 16th, setting up a two-putt birdie to restore his lead to three shots. He ﬁnished with two pars, the last putt from inches away. McIlroy simply smiled, shared hugs with his caddie and Fowler, and then waved mother Rosie onto the green. She was not at the other two majors he won. He turned and applauded the fans in the horseshoe
arena around the 18th green, and then returned to collect the oldest trophy in golf. This could have been another romp except for a shaky stretch early for McIlroy, and solid efforts from Garcia and Fowler. Garcia pulled within two shots with four holes to play until he put his tee shot in a pot bunker just right of the 15th green. His ﬁrst shot failed to get over the 4-foot sodden wall and rolled back into the sand. He made bogey, and two birdies over the ﬁnal three holes were not enough. Garcia shot 66 and was runner-up in a major for the fourth time. “I think that we gave it a good effort,” Garcia said. “And there was someone a little bit better.” Fowler, playing in the final group for the second straight major, didn’t do anything wrong. He just didn’t do enough right to make up a six-shot deﬁcit. Fowler played without a bogey and shot 67. All that’s left for McIlroy to become the sixth player to win the career Grand Slam is a green jacket from the Masters. “I don’t have any doubt he’ll win there,” Fowler said. “I just hope I get that one before he does.” DOUG FERGUSON (AP)
No Loss of Confidence for Tiger: Even after his worst 72-hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team. His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn’t much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson. Woods closed with a 3-over 75 on Sunday at Royal Liverpool and finished at 6-over 294, matching his highest score in the British Open. Woods still has two tournaments left before the end of Ryder Cup qualifying at the PGA Championship. He is No. 72 in the standings, and aside from winning the final major of the year, his best bet to making the team is to be one of Watson’s three picks. (AP)

FSU quarterback Jameis Winston speaks at Sunday’s ACC kickoff event.
ACC Riding Buzz From FSU’s Title College Football It’s been a while since the ACC entered a season with this much buzz. The realigned league has the defending national champion, a Heisman Trophy winner and a national coach of the year. The ACC stumbled through much of the BCS era, but enters the ﬁrst year of the four-team college football playoff with a secure future among the power-ﬁve conferences and boasts a favorite to contend for another title in Florida State. “I think we’ve got as good a shot as anybody to be in the top four the ﬁrst year,” commissioner John Swofford said Sunday, the ﬁrst of the league’s two-day preseason kickoff event. At least on paper, that sure looks like the Seminoles. The defending BCS champions are trying to keep themselves at a high level. “How does it feel to have an ACC team come in here with a national championship?” Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston asked. “Can we get us, the ACC, a round of applause? Finally. We took it away from the SEC, man. It’s a blessing.” JOEDY McCREARY (AP)

runners in scoring position before Weeks’ at-bat. Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy drove in runs for Milwaukee. Staked to a 3-1 lead, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo allowed four runs and eight hits over six innings. Gallardo has not won since June 19 and is 0-2 with a 7.33 ERA in his last four starts. Gonzalez allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and ﬁve strikeouts on 88 pitches over 31⁄3 innings. Gonzalez had his start pushed back one day after ﬂight issues caused a delay in his return to Washington following the AllStar break.

Anthony Rendon reached on a ﬁelder’s choice against Rob Wooten (1-4) with two outs in the ninth. He scored from ﬁrst on Werth’s drive into the left ﬁeld corner.

Robert Griffin III, coach Jay Gruden and the Redskins open training camp Thursday.
Players: Not Much Change to Offense Gruden’s new system is similar to former coach Shanahan’s Redskins The Redskins used their offseason practices to begin the transition from former coach Mike Shanahan’s offensive system to that of Shanahan’s successor, Jay Gruden. The early indications, according to Redskins players, are that the shift will be more about tinkering than overhauling. “It’s not much of a difference from the offense last year, to tell you the truth,” wide receiver Pierre Garcon said as he walked off the ﬁeld at Redskins Park following one offseason practice. “It’s the same offensive coordinating guys from last year.” Gruden promoted Shanahan’s tight ends coach, Sean McVay, to offensive coordinator and vowed to retain ingredients of Shanahan’s offensive system, particularly those involving the running game. “I think having two years’ experience running an offense, a prolevel offense, West Coast type, this is very similar,” quarterback Robert Grifﬁn III said during offseason practices. “So it’s not been as tough as you might think. But all the concepts translate over. They might be called something differ-

ent. But the reads are similar. It’s just about the philosophy of the coach. Jay has a little bit different philosophy. We’ll ﬁnd out what that is on Sundays.” The designed running plays for Grifﬁn are likely to be curtailed with Gruden in charge. People in and around the organization say they expect the new coaching staff to emphasize Grifﬁn’s development as a pocket passer. The Redskins have reworked their offensive line and added wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts as free agents. Those changes, plus the progress made by second-year tight end Jordan Reed, could make the biggest difference in their offense. “I have high expectations,” Jackson said. “There’s a lot of playmakers on this team all the way from … Santana Moss to Andre Roberts, [Jordan] Reed. It’s very exciting.” MARK MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Tour de Workforce D.C.’s diverse pool of visitors give tourism programs an edge
TEDDY WOLFF (FOR EXPRESS)
Jason Kreiselman’s experience with the Peace Corps in Ecuador led him to pursue a career in tourism administration in D.C.
After four years in the Peace Corps in Ecuador, Jason Kreiselman, an engineer, decided to shift his focus on development to a different field: tourism. He saw that Ecuadoreans wanted to draw more tourists to their South American country, but they didn’t quite know the best way to do it. “People would think that if they have a waterfall on their property the world is going to come see it,” he says. “But not if there’s no road to get there or restaurants to eat at. I saw the power tourism could have as an international economic development tool, when planned properly.” So Kreiselman, 34, enrolled in George Washington University’s master’s of tourism administration program (business.gwu.edu/ mta). He chose George Washington in part because of its location in a world capital. “Being right in D.C. is a huge asset,” he says. “There are just tons of opportunities to meet people making a difference in the tourism world.” That’s because the Washington area is home to the headquarters of hotel chains Hilton and Marriott, as well as all kinds of associations and nonproﬁts focused on tourism. “D.C. is undoubtedly the heart of the global hospitality industry,” says Gray Shealy, the executive director of the new master’s of profession-
al studies in hospitality management at Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies (bit .ly/1kAwlFt). “We’ve seen students from all over the world applying to the program, because they see the potential being in D.C. has for advancing their careers.” Understanding the global hospitality and tourism marketplace is a must for any job in the ﬁeld these days. “The hospitality industry is one of the most diverse industries in the world,” says Solomon Keene Jr., president of the Hotel Association of Washington, D.C. (hawdc.com).
“D.C. is undoubtedly the heart of the global hospitality industry.” — GR AY SHE A LY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF GEORGETOWN’S NEW MASTER’S PROGRAM IN HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT, ON WHY D.C. IS A BOON FOR STUDENTS
That’s why D.C.-area master’s programs teach tourism concepts from a global perspective and build international experience into their curricula with internships and study-abroad opportunities, helping to prepare graduates for a world that’s more interconnected than ever. Case in point: As their economic situations improve, more people in countries like China, Brazil and India will have the ability and desire to travel, meaning that Europeans and Americans will no longer make up the majority of travelers in the world.

is traveling,” says Kristin Lamoureux, an assistant professor and the director of the International Institute of Tourism Studies at George Washington University’s School of Business (bit.ly/1yMCQxq). “If you have an understanding of the global perspective, it opens up more opportunities from a career perspective.” Employers are looking for people who can effectively respond to the needs and desires of different cultures. You’ll certainly need to know how to interact with nonAmerican travelers if you’re managing an international location of a major U.S. hotel chain or helping a foreign country improve their economy by luring tourists. But even if you hope your career keeps you ﬁrmly on American soil, you’ll encounter travelers from all over the world, who all have different expectations. “A Chinese traveler is looking for something totally different than a traveler coming from Brazil,” says Kreiselman. George Washington’s program provides students with plenty of opportunities to get ﬁrsthand experience with the global marketplace. They’re focusing on sports management, or event and meeting management. Students in the program have attended Olympic Games and the World Cup and assessed tourism practices in places like Campeche, Mexico, as part of a consulting practicum. That experience helps set graduates apart from other job candidates. “I’ve had students come back to me and say that class is what got them the interview for a job,” Lamoureux says. “The employers saw that they had real international experience while in grad school.” Nearby, Georgetown is ushering in a new program, its master’s of professional studies in hospitality management, which begins this fall. The program will offer a combination of core concepts and international exposure. Part-time students can graduate in approximately 24 months over six semesters; full-time students

As countries like China grow, so does demand for employees in the hospitality field. That means opportunities at hotels, such as this Marriott in Beijing.
are able to graduate in 16 months over four semesters. Professionals in the industry will teach classes on subjects like marketing and human resources, potentially using actual work experiences as case studies. Students can take advantage of internships and short-term studyabroad opportunities in places like Singapore and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which will be designed for folks who might still be working fulltime and attending classes at night. “Being more worldly will really give students a one-up,” says Shealy, a former Starwood Hotels executive. And, he adds, that experience applies across the field, for students who aspire to work at a hotel chain’s corporate headquarters, as a regional director, or simply at a single hotel property. Kreiselman, who will be completing his degree at the end of the summer, is already putting what he’s learned to use in his part-time job as a digital marketing adviser with Brand USA, assessing the best ways to use blogs and social media to help draw foreign travelers to America. “My understanding of the international marketplace was pretty key in securing that job,” he says. That kind of knowledge should continue to help him and other students throughout their careers. “International experience is really a résumé builder,” Lamoureux says. BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRESS)

Ready to ‘Upgrade U’ Music’s power couple Beyonce and Jay Z may be close to splitting up 25
James Garner was best known for his starring role in “The Rockford Files.”
‘Maverick’ Actor Dies James Garner took on action and comedy in his lengthy career Obituary Actor James Garner, who was found dead at 86 of natural causes at his Los Angeles home on Saturday, was adept at drama and action. But he was best known for his wisecracking style, especially on his hit Western series “Maverick” (1957-62). After “Maverick,” Garner demonstrated his versatility in his ﬁlm career, mastering comedy (“Boys’ Night Out,” “The Thrill of It All”), suspense (“The Great Escape,” “Marlowe”) and Westerns (“Duel at Diablo,” “Hour of the Gun”). Garner won an Emmy for his performance in the NBC series “The Rockford Files” (1974-80), in which he played an L.A. private eye and wrongly incarcerated ex-con who thanklessly solved cases. Well into his 70s, the handsome Oklahoman remained active in both TV and ﬁlm. In 2004 he starred in the romance ﬁlm “The Notebook.” “My wife [actress Lois Clarke] and I felt … we’d just watch the sunset from the front porch,” Garner said in 2000. “But then the phone started ringing with all these wonderful offers, and we decided, ‘Heck, let ’s stay in the business for a while.’ ” FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)
Jason Mraz’s ‘YES!’ has an optimism that is worthy of the album title’s enthusiasm
Jason Mraz tackles the ups and downs of love on “YES!”
Album Review On his fifth studio album, singersongwriter Jason Mraz returns to familiar lyrical territory, exploring the highs and lows of love in his bright, folk-pop style. This time, though, the sound is both richer and more stripped down — an acoustic ride enriched by the vocals, strings and percussion of his partners on the album, the all-female quartet Raining Jane. Their layered harmonies lend an ethereal vibe throughout, and an almost gospel quality to the album’s best song, the closing ode to love, “Shine.” Mraz co-wrote every song on “YES!” with the indie group, except for the worthy resurrection of the Boyz II Men classic, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.” “YES!” tells a love story, from the initial intoxication to the inevitable goodbye. Every moment of an ordinary day is magic in “Hello, You Beautiful Thing.” “I know it’s gonna be a good day,” he sings over bouncy guitars and marimbas. “This is what I’ve been waiting for.” After heartbreak, he goes “Back to the Earth,” an enthusiastic singalong about nature’s solace. “I try to stop the world from moving so fast, try to get a grip on where I’m at,” he sings, “and simplify this dizzy life and put my feet in the grass.” Like Mraz’s previous albums, “YES!” is cheerfully optimistic,

Pop That’s Looking Up
as evidenced by the single, “Love Someone.” But the real standouts are the more introspective tracks, like the cello-driven “You Can Rely on Me” and the downbeat “A World With You.” “Let’s throw caution to the wind and start over again,” he sings as a cello cries. “I want to see the world the way I see a world with you.” SANDY COHEN (AP)
Happy and Healthy Jason Mraz’s upbeat pop songs have won him two Grammys, for the love song “Make It Mine” and “Lucky,” his duet with friend and fellow singersongwriter Colbie Caillat. Mraz has said his love of surf culture inspires his carefree music. “The fact that surfing serves no point, really, I think that brings to my music a sort of carefree, ‘everything is going to be OK’ kind of quality,” Mraz told CBS Sunday Morning. “Because when you’re out in the water, that’s how you feel: ‘Everything is going to be OK.’ ” His love of nature extends to his vegetarian lifestyle, which he maintains by growing most of his own food. But even the most dedicated vegetable lover couldn’t eat the fruit from his 300 avocado trees, so Mraz sells part of his crop to Chipotle restaurants in San Diego. (E XPRESS)

unions lookout Greg Morrison, Dawn Reed
HOW HE PROPOSED: At the beer garden right after New Year’s Eve. He propped her up on a stool and dropped to one knee. “The world melted away,” Dawn says, “and I yelled ‘@%$# yeah!’ ” STUPIDEST FIGHT: They argued about whether a song played on Spotify or not. “That was pretty stupid,” Greg says. MAKING IT UNIQUE: After the boat leaves the dock, the ceremony will start with Dawn walking down the aisle to “Hard to Explain” by The Strokes. A friend from Westover will officiate the “short and sweet” ceremony. Then the boat bar will serve Bell’s Two-Hearted, the beer they drank on their first date.
Greg, 30, works for an association management firm. Dawn, 33, is a QA editor. They live in Arlington. THE MAIN EVENT: They will marry Aug. 8 on a riverboat on the Potomac. HOW THEY MET: OKCupid. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “Hot guy alert!” “So tall! Won’t have to bend down to kiss this cutie!” FIRST DATE: They met at the Westover Beer Garden in Arlington on Aug. 8, 2012, two years to the day that they’ll be getting hitched. They bonded over music, gaming and sci-fi.
Bruce Gross, Nichole Townes Bruce, 27, is an electrical engineer. Nichole, 25, is a contract specialist. They live in Cheverly, Md. THE MAIN EVENT: The couple will jump the broom (literally) July 26 in Beltsville, Md. They will walk down the aisle to Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky.” HOW THEY MET: In art class, his senior year of high school. They remained strictly friends until reconnecting years later while on the town with friends. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “Not only is
she cute, but well educated, down to earth, goofy and fun to be around.” FIRST DATE: Bowling (Bruce won) followed by dinner at Applebee’s. FIRST KISS: A few dates later. “We were about to go our separate ways and Bruce just kissed me out of nowhere. I was shocked.” HOW HE PROPOSED: In Mexico on vacation. He’d hired a photographer to approach them, calling them a “beautiful couple” that he simply had to photograph. While she was distracted, Bruce pulled out the ring. MOST HATED CLOTHING ITEM: His tuxedo T-shirt. “He thinks he’s dressed up when he has it on!” STUPIDEST FIGHT: Over the remote control.
Nat Keller, Ashley Lear Nat, 29, is a marketing manager for a trade group. Ashley, 28, is an analyst. They live in Alexandria. THE MAIN EVENT: It’s Nov. 7 at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, Calif. The reception room at the Nixon library is a repilca of the East Room in the White House. “It felt like the perfect way to bring D.C. to our friends and family in California,” Ashley says. HOW THEY MET: He was working at Elephant & Castle and she applied for a job there. FIRST DATE: She took him to the top of the Old Post Office Pavilion to show him the D.C. skyline. Then he reminded her he’d been in D.C. for two years and had already seen it all. HOW HE PROPOSED: While shopping in Old Town Alexandria, they passed the city’s Christmas tree. Nat handed the camera to his sister and popped the question. PET NAMES: “I call her ‘Sweets’ and ‘Sweet Pea.’ ”

“So upset with your lack of mozzarella stick ordering. Only seven orders? For real?” — COMMENTER TACOBELLCOW AT GAWKER.COM isn’t
impressed with Caity Weaver, the Gawker reporter who set out on a marathon mozzarella-stick-eating challenge to test the validity of TGI Friday’s $10 Endless Appetizers promotion. Weaver sat in a Brooklyn, N.Y., TGI Friday’s for 14 hours, with the sole intention of eating as many orders of one appetizer as she could. At the end of the day, she ordered seven plates, consuming 32 mozzarella sticks — only a little more than two an hour.
