Police Paid Off by Goose Lobby A New Hampshire woman who called police after stopping in a highway median to help some stranded ducklings plans to fight a $100 ticket. Hallie Bibeau of Newfields tells WMUR-TV she was driving on Friday when she had to slam on her brakes to avoid hitting the ducklings. Bibeau called 911, got out of her car and captured two of the ducklings. A state trooper issued Bibeau a ticket for stopping in the median. (AP) WASTEFUL
Of All Things to Do With Delicious Food, You Pick This? There’s mischief afoot in one suburban Portland, Ore., neighborhood, but police say it doesn’t involve the typical spray paint or broken windows. No, we’re talking pastry here — maple bars smeared on cars, doughnuts left atop windshield wipers, pastries littering a yard. One woman told officers she’s seen more than a dozen incidents of food smeared on cars. Not just pastry, but yogurt, cakes and eggs. She alerted police July 11. (AP) BEETLES CAUSE OF DEATH ...

Courts Disagree on Obamacare Opposing decisions cast fate of subsidies in 36 states in doubt Washington Two federal appellate courts handed down contradictory rulings Tuesday on the legality of a central part of the Affordable Care Act that provides insurance subsidies to millions of Americans in three dozen states. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the subsidies available under the 2010 health-care law may be provided only to residents of states that set up their own health insurance marketplaces. Less than two hours later, the Richmondbased 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the subsidies, ruling in a separate case that the law’s language was ambiguous, giving the Obama administration the authority to allow the subsidies nationwide. The suits argued that Congress intended for the subsidies — in the form of tax credits — to go only to people in states that set up their own insurance exchanges, also
What Happens Now? The Obama administration said it will ask the entire D.C. appellate court panel to review the challenge. If it does, the administration is much more likely to get a favorable ruling, given the Democratic-leaning makeup of the entire circuit. If the court refuses what’s known as an “en banc” review, it increases the likelihood that the Supreme Court would take up the subsidies case, given the split rulings in the D.C. and Virginia circuits. There are two other pending cases in the federal system that are much further behind. For more analysis of the dueling rulings, go to washingtonpost.com.
The number of people who could be affected if subsidies are banned in states that don’t have their own health insurance exchanges. (T WP)
referred to as marketplaces. They said it was meant as a “carrot,” to entice states to embrace this part of the law. They cited a section of the law that said the subsidies would be available to those “enrolled through an Exchange established by the State.” “We feel very strong about the sound legal reasoning of the argument that the administration is making,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “There’s
a clear, commonsense case to be made here, which is that intent of Congress was to be sure that every eligible American who applied for tax credits ... would have access to those tax credits whether or not the marketplace was operated by federal ofﬁcials or state ofﬁcials.” Republicans, however, immediately cited the D.C. decision as yet more evidence that the law is ﬂawed. “Today’s decision rightly holds the Obama administration accountable to the law. The plain text of Obamacare authorizes subsidies only through state exchanges, not the federal exchange,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “The court considered the administration’s justiﬁcations and came to an unmistak-
able conclusion: President Obama overreached.” If the D.C. decision is upheld, it would have wide-ranging consequences for states that declined to set up their own marketplaces. The ruling would affect 27 states, and another nine states that partially opted out of setting up their own marketplaces. Those states are instead being served by the federal marketplace, HealthCare.gov. Companies in those states would no longer have to offer health insurance to their workers under the so-called employer mandate, which kicks in next year. This is because under the law, employers are only hit with penalties for noncompliance if one or more of their workers ends up buying health coverage with the help of a subsidy. And it would put insurance ﬁnancially out of reach for the millions of Americans relying on subsidies to pay insurance premiums. T he r uling does not have an immediate impact, because t he judges gave t he government time to appeal the decision. SANDHYA SOMASHEKHAR AND AMY GOLDSTEIN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Is she obese? Or just big-boned?
Elephants Are Too Fat, But It’s Tough to Tell Washington African elephants in captivity are packing on the pounds, and experts warn that the rise in obesity is contributing to infertility, which could be detrimental to the survival of the species in zoos. Just like humans, elephants with excess fat are more likely than others to develop infertility. Elephants are so large that it’s difficult for zookeepers to tell the difference between a healthy-weight animal and an obese one. Zookeepers can weigh elephants, but it’s hard to determine body fat. At U.S. zoos, which need to average about six births per year to maintain their population, the current rate is only about three per year. Obesity is suspected to be a major part of the problem.

Jet Attack’s Telltale Evidence
(THE WASHINGTON POST )
Who Is He? A former officer in the Russian intelligence service, Litvinenko fell out with the Russian government and became a strong critic of the Kremlin. He came to Britain in 2000 and died in 2006, at age 43, after drinking tea laced with polonium-210 at a London hotel.
Are There Suspects? The two Russians who sipped tea with him before he fell ill have been named as suspects, but they deny involvement and remain in Russia. Until now, the investigation has been prohibited from considering evidence that the Russian government played a role.
Why Now? British officials stressed Tuesday that the timing of the Litvinenko decision and the push to punish Russia after last week’s downing of a passenger flight in eastern Ukraine were entirely unrelated. But few in London believe that.
He “kept repeating the names of his daughters, until life left him.” — Pogu Bitrus, a community leader in Chibok, Nigeria, talking about the father of two of the 200 kidnapped schoolgirls. The man was one of 11 parents of the abducted girls who have since died, town residents say.
U.S. intelligence officials said that while the Russians have been arming separatists in eastern Ukraine, the U.S. had no evidence that the missile used to shoot down the passenger jet came from Russia. A train bearing the dead reached Ukrainian government-held territory, but pro-Russia separatists showed little willingness to allow the full probe demanded by world leaders. France said it will go ahead with the sale of a warship to Russia. Also, the European Union spared Russia sweeping new sanctions for now. Among the conspiracy theories in Russia: It was an assassination attempt against President Vladimir Putin, a ploy to draw the West into the battle for Ukraine’s east, a botched mission to commit mass murder against Russian citizens. The corpse of a woman who was on Flight 17 dropped through the roof into one family’s kitchen in Ukraine. “We never expected people falling from the sky,” said Inna Tipunova, who said Tuesday that no one took the corpse away for 24 hours. (AP/ T WP)
Washington The black boxes from Malaysia Air Flight 17 are unlikely to reveal what caused it to plunge from the sky above Ukraine, but tiny holes in the scattered wreckage can provide telltale evidence it was struck down by a missile, experts said Tuesday. There could be one hole or there could be dozens — none much bigger than a dime — but they are unmistakable evidence that a missile did the damage. “It’s a very distinct type of damage,” said Robert Benzon, a former lead investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board. While it’s possible that a missile actually hit the airplane, Benzon stressed that surface-to-air missiles are designed to detonate when they come close to planes and spray them with high-velocity particles, much like the spread of buckshot ﬁred from a shotgun. While the black boxes have been

delivered to Malaysian authorities, the wreckage of the plane lies strewn across eastern Ukraine, unsecured in territory held by separatist rebels. Some of it apparently has been picked over by civilians. Three of America’s leading airplane-crash investigators, all now retired, agreed that the ﬂight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder would not tell investigators much about what happened. “Because it’s a shoot-down, apparently, the recorder goes from
everything’s normal to nothing’s being recorded,” said Steven Wallace, former director of accident investigation for the Federal Aviation Administration. Benzon said investigators should worry about why the crash occurred, not how it occurred. “The answer isn’t going to be in the recorders, and it’s not going to be in the wreckage,” he said. “It’s going to be interviewing people who operated the anti-aircraft missiles.” ASHLEY HALSEY III (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Airlines Ban Flights to Israel After Rocket Strike Jerusalem A Hamas rocket exploded Tuesday near Israel’s main airport, prompting a ban on all ﬂights from the U.S. and many from Europe and Canada as aviation authorities responded to the shock of seeing a civilian jetliner shot down over Ukraine. Israel declared that Ben-Gurion Airport was safe and said there was no reason to “hand terror a prize” by halting ﬂights. Palestinian militants have ﬁred more than 2,000 rockets toward Israel since ﬁghting began July 8, but most fell harmlessly into open areas or were shot out of the sky by the “Iron Dome” defense system. Tuesday’s rocket attack was the
Also Tuesday Israel grappled with news that a soldier went missing after an attack in the Gaza Strip, raising the possibility he was abducted.

closest to the airport so far. Aviation authorities reacted swiftly. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration prohibited American airlines from ﬂying to Tel Aviv for 24 hours. Later, the European Aviation Safety Agency issued an advisory to airlines saying it “strongly recommends” airlines avoid the airport. Germany’s Lufthansa, Air France, Air Canada, Alitalia, Dutch KLM, Britain’s easyJet, Turkish Airlines and Greece’s Aegean Airlines were among those carriers canceling ﬂights to Tel Aviv. The Tel Aviv airport is Israel’s main gateway to the world and Hamas militants have said they hoped to target it to disrupt life in Israel. ARON HELLER (AP)

Local Report: Home where autistic twins were locked up was unsafe Rockville A Rockville couple accused of keeping their autistic twins locked at night inside a barren, unlit basement room was ordered not to return to the house until the stench of urine was cleaned and the locks and plywood boards that blocked interior entrance-ways were removed, according to a fire inspection report. The report offers a glimpse into the living conditions at the home, where John and Janice Land have been the caretakers of the 22-yearold sons. The Lands were charged late last week with two counts of abuse of a vulnerable adult and two counts of false imprisonment, according to court records. John Land told detectives he locked the young men in the base-

that they want, the records state. Last Thursday morning, police entered the home to serve a warrant in an unrelated case. They found the locked room and discovered the twins. Police took the parents into custody. The twins were taken to get medical checkups. City inspectors came to examine the house. John Land told detectives that the couple recently removed furniture from the basement bedroom because it was soiled, according to court documents, and the couple indicated that they would buy new furniture when they could afford it. John Land said he usually locked them in at 10 p.m. and let them out when he got up at 4:45 a.m., according to court records. Detectives asked Land how he would know if the sons needed something. He told them that the two would eventually make enough noise that he knew when to check on them, according to officials. Dan Morse (The Washington POst )

Washington Howard University’s Board of Trustees has named interim president Wayne A.I. Frederick, a cancer surgeon who holds three Howard degrees, as the school’s 17th president. F r e d e r i c k ’s appointment comes at a tumultuous time for the historically black university, which Frederick in the past year has faced allegations of fiscal mismanagement, two credit downgrades amid concerns about the ﬁnancial health of a university-owned hospital and a drop in a major national ranking of higher-education institutions. The board voted to appoint Frederick on Monday evening, accepting the unanimous recommendation of a search committee.

Law enforcement ofﬁcials say they typically identify their targets through police sources and then vet their history before going after them. The liquor store sting operations, outlined in court filings and trial testimony, are crafted to inﬁltrate small teams of armed robbers who police consider more violent than the typical street-level criminal. Assistant Chief Peter Newsham said the strategy has helped, contributing to a decline in robberies of more than 25 percent since the start of the year.

Mail is delivered after 5 p.m. more than two-thirds of the time in D.C. and the Maryland suburbs, an investigation released Tuesday found, raising concerns about workers’ safety and provoking complaints. The number of letter carriers who are still on their routes after 5 p.m. has grown so dramatically that the Capital District now ranks as the worst region in the country for late mail service, a report by Postal Service Inspector General David Williams concluded. Northern Virginia also ranked in the top ﬁve areas where Americans received their mail late, auditors found, with 69 percent still on their routes at night in 2013. The probe of delivery after dark around D.C. was prompted by the death last November of a part-time carrier who was shot dead in his mail truck in Prince George’s County, Md., as he was delivering the mail at 7:30 p.m. Authorities have made no arrest in the killing of Tyson Jerome Barnette.

Reading Between Our Lines Facial recognition technology could soon be used to predict life spans Washington Imagine that an insurance underwriter comes to your house and, along with noting your weight and blood pressure, snaps a photo of your face. And that those wrinkles, mottled spots and saggy parts, when fed into a computer, could estimate how long you will live. Facial recognition technology, long used to guess how a missing child might look as an adult, is getting personal. A group of scientists is working on a system that analyzes a person’s prospects (life span) based on how his or her face has aged. The research is still in its early stages, but the idea of using facial recognition technology has prompted interest from insurance companies who see potential for using it to set premiums. There’s also a potential beneﬁt for individuals: The technology might prod them to change their health habits before it’s too late. The technology involves using a computer to scan a photo of a face for signs of aging. Factoring in the subject’s race, gender, education level and smoking history, it analyzes each section of the face looking for age-related changes that might indicate how the person is doing compared with others of the same age and background. The idea for the project came to Jay Olshansky, a biodemographer at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a couple of years ago during dinner with an insurance underwriter who wanted a better way of assessing people’s survival prospects. Olshansky, who studies aging, knew that people who live longer generally look younger than others their age. He wondered whether that knowledge could translate
How Old Does Your Face Look? A new system uses algorithms and a growing database of faces to assess how old parts of a person’s face appear to be. Researchers behind the system hope to one day link the appearance of aging to estimates of a person’s longevity. Here’s what the computer said about two Washington Post reporters.
HOW IT WORKS
1 A computer
places 250 dot “landmarks” on the image to determine target areas.
2 It connects
the dots to make triangles and looks for variations in color and texture within each triangle. More variations than average within an area often indicate an older face.

into something more scientiﬁc. He contacted Karl Ricanek, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, who has worked on facial recognition technology, and along with a biostatistician and other computer scientists, they developed a program to analyze photographs of faces. They have launched a website — FaceMyAge.com — inviting anyone to submit a photo. The database they are developing is expected to deliver more accurate assessments and predictions as more people participate. The researchers are hoping for at least 10,000 or 20,000 people, but preferably more, to participate. The algorithms work different-
considered and assigned ages.The combination results in a “perceived age,” which is basically how old the computer thinks the person behind the face is.

Women’s faces tend to age more quickly than men’s because of different distributions of fat and blood vessels.) Olshansky conceded that even if face aging is found to correlate with longevity, there will be outliers who don’t ﬁt the general pattern. “The longest-lived person in the world smoked for 100 years,” he said, adding that U.S. presidents, too, tend to be outliers, aging visibly faster in office but generally living longer than average.

Offense Fueled By Running JOHN LOCHER (AP)
Nats have been one of the best in majors on the base paths Nationals The Nationals gathered Monday evening for their usual advance meeting, the planning session they employ before the start of every series, and talked about grass. Turf grows thicker and higher at Coors Field than it does at other parks, manager Matt Williams told his players. They could be on the alert for balls that die quickly, opportunities to bolt an extra 90 feet on the base paths.
Andrew Wiggins was the No. 1 pick in the draft last month by the Cavaliers.
Cavaliers To Sign Wiggins NBA
This season, the Nationals have used every detail available to excel at running the bases. By most any measure, they have been the best base running team in the National League, running with aggression while giving away few outs. T h e Na t i o n a l s h a v e n o t hit exceptionally well — their .250/.316/.389 slash line entering Tuesday night was nearly identical to the National League average of .249/.311/.384. But their 4.2 runs per game ranked third in the NL. The difference between their average hitting and elite scoring derives primarily from their base running. “It’s DNA,” Williams said. “We established that in spring training. We established that it’s really important to steal bases when we can. And part of our DNA is going ﬁrst-to-third. We have the capability of doing that. It sets our innings up. Guys are aggressive. That takes

a lot of thought, too.” The Nationals reinforce their base running philosophy in every advance meeting. Third base coach Bobby Henley taught base running as a roving instructor in the Nationals’ minor league system prior to this year. He aimed to promote aggression, and it has carried over with him in the third base coach’s box. Monday night, Henley windmilled home Wilson Ramos as he lumbered from ﬁrst and tested Carlos Gonzalez’s strong arm with Ryan Zimmerman. Both scored. “Having been a part of it, I learned how much of an impact Bobby Henley had on that overall attitude and mentality,” ﬁrst base

coach Tony Tarasco said. “Having him at third base deﬁnitely helps us keep that attitude.” Per FanGraphs’ base running metric, Denard Span has been the Nationals’ best runner. He ranks 11th in the majors at 4.2 runs above average, key by his 16-for-18 success in stealing bases. The Nationals focus on their secondary lead, gathering momentum as a pitcher releases the ball. During batting practice, once they ﬁnish swinging, Nationals hitters take one trip around the bases, simulating how they would do so in a game. “They’re taking it seriously,” Williams said.

Queen’s Horse Fails Doping Test: A racehorse owned by Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II that won the prestigious Gold Cup at Royal Ascot last year has tested positive for the banned painkiller, morphine. The British Horseracing Authority announced last week that tests on five horses under the care of various trainers showed the presence of morphine in their ‘A’ samples. On Tuesday, the queen’s bloodstock and racing adviser, John Warren, said that the monarch’s 5-year-old filly Estimate was one of the five. Warren added: “Her Majesty has been informed of the situation.” (AP)
Andrew Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavaliers, but it’s still not clear if he’ll play for them. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavaliers will sign the No. 1 overall pick to his deal, an agreement that would prevent any potential trade involving the small forward from being completed for 30 days. Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday. The Cavaliers and Timberwolves have had ongoing discussions about a trade for Love since before Cleveland selected Wiggins first in May. The Timberwolves have always insisted that Wiggins be involved in any package, a stipulation the Cavaliers have resisted. Signing Wiggins to a contract wouldn’t necessarily prevent a trade from eventually happening. Under league rules, Wiggins cannot be ofﬁcially traded for 30 days after he signs. But the Timberwolves and Cavaliers could come to some sort of agreement before that and then execute the trade after the window closes. (AP)

ACC Settles Into An Era of Stability Commissioner says new schools have meshed with league College Football Welcome to the new ACC. It’s where a founding member is out, a fast-rising program is in, Notre Dame is there, too — sort of — and nobody else is leaving. Where a one-time punchline of a football conference now boasts the Heisman Trophy winner, the reigning national champion and a handful of other individual award winners. And where stability ﬁnally has arrived — with its status as a power conference secure entering the College Football Playoff era — leaving its members optimistic about its future. “I think everybody is where they want to be,” Commissioner John Swofford said. “That’s real important.” So, here comes ambitious Louisville into its fourth conference since 2004. There goes Maryland, off to the Big Ten. And Notre Dame is at least dipping its toe into the league, starting a scheduling arrangement this year in which it will play a handful of ACC teams every season while keeping its prized football independence. The Fighting Irish joined in all sports except football and hockey

last year, with Pittsburgh and Syracuse also coming on. In the board room, Swofford said the new schools have “meshed so comfortably with our league, and that’s a real credit to the individuals around the table. It feels like we’ve been together a lot longer than we have, and that’s really a good thing.” These 15 schools are bonded at least through 2026-27 by a grant-of-rights agreement that was announced last year and pumped the brakes on realignment. So, what appears to be the ﬁnal reshufﬂing — for a while, at least — shifts the ACC’s footprint into the Midwest, moving into Kentucky and Indiana. “The quality is really what’s brought to the table and along with it, from a pure marketplace standpoint, our footprint now has the largest population and the most television sets of any conference’s footprint in the country,” Swofford said.

Top QB Battle Is in Cleveland Manziel vs. Hoyer is most intriguing of training camp duels
added Michael Vick in the offseason after he lost the starting job in Philadelphia to Nick Foles.
The Vikings got Teddy Bridgewater with the final pick of the first round of the NFL draft in May, three years after they took Christian Ponder 12th overall. Ponder has failed to make much progress in his three NFL seasons. Matt Cassel totaled only 27 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in his past three seasons for the Chiefs and Vikings. There probably is no great option for the Vikings.
There is no more intriguing or polarizing player in the league, as NFL training camps get under way, than Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel. And, thanks to his presence, the Browns have the sport’s most compelling training-camp quarterback battle as they decide whether to enter the season with Manziel or Brian Hoyer as their starter. Hoyer is on his fourth NFL team and totaled four starts in his ﬁrst ﬁve seasons in the league. He is, it appears, merely the placeholder as the starter for the Browns until Manziel is ready to play. Manziel will get his chance, but

whether or not that chance comes on Sept. 7, when the Browns open their 2014 regular season in Pittsburgh, remains to be seen. But the Browns won’t be the only team with some training camp intrigue under center.

Surprising Skills Kris Jenner will release a cookbook of her home recipes in October 27
VS. The rich, spoiled ladies of “Hotwives of Orlando,” left, echo the rich, spoiled ladies of “The Real Housewives,” including the Orange County, Calif., cast, right.
The War of the Wives Hulu’s new scripted comedy “Hotwives of Orlando” is technically a parody of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” series. As many have noted, trying to satirize the absurd franchise is a difficult task, because the actual shows — from New York to Orange County — are already so much like parodies of themselves. It’s almost impossible to tell the two apart. Making up the main “hotwives,” there’s Tawny St. John (Casey Wilson), who uses her husband’s allergies as an excuse to cheat on him with her trainer; Shauna Maducci (Danielle Schneider), the Jersey native with a shopping addiction; Veronica Von Vandervon (Andrea Savage), described as simply a “rich white woman.” Plus, Crystal Simmons (Angela Kinsey) as a God-fearing housewife who has never read the Bible; Amanda Simmons (Kristen Schaal), Crystal’s sister, clinging to her glory days as a child star in a local prune juice commercial; and Phe Phe Reed (Tymberlee Hill), who uses her catchphrase (“I got to be
Phe Phe, I speak my mind”) to say mean things to everyone. Still, some of the characters remind us a little too much of some of “Real Housewives” reallife cast, Caroline Manzo of “New Jersey,” Phaedra Parks of “Atlanta,” Sonja Morgan of “New York,” Alexis Bellino of “Orange County,” etc.: So much that we decided to put it to the test. Can you tell which quotes were said by the ladies of “Hotwives” versus the women of “Housewives”? Warning: Even though one franchise is fake and one is real, it’s an exceptionally difﬁcult challenge.

Whole New Ball Game and dramatizes his ﬁnal years. The most radical feature of “Red or Dead” — and one that will try the patience of some readers — is the style. Peace uses short, often incomplete sentences, eschews pronouns and quotation marks, and deliberately repeats phrases and descriptions to excessive length, recalling early modernist works by Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and T.S. Eliot. Peace’s style often transcends modernist aesthetics to evoke ancient epics and medieval ballads, their repetitive formulas and lilting refrains, their stylized actions and heroic gravitas. He confesses in the ﬁnal third that “football is my religion,” and the style appropriately resembles liturgical chanting, mystical incantation. For readers who simply want
David Peace turns a Liverpool manager’s life into an epic tale Book Review What Robert Coover and David Foster Wallace did for baseball and tennis, respectively, in the world of sport writing is matched, if not trounced, by what British writer David Peace has done for soccer, first with “The Damned Utd” (2006) and now with his mesmerizing “Red or Dead” ($24, Melville). This is an epic treatment of the career of Bill Shankly, who from 1959 to 1974 led the previously mediocre Liverpool Football Club to a series of triumphs. The ﬁrst two-thirds of the book is a clipped account of every game the team played during those 15 seasons, complete with stats and attendance ﬁgures. The ﬁnal third begins with his unexpected decision to retire
the straight story, there are a couple dozen books about Shankly to choose from. But “with artistry and craft, with bravery and with strength,” Peace set out to ennoble Shankly’s career into a postmodern epic. Goal! After Shankly retires, it becomes clear that the qualities that drove Shankly and his team to the top make it difﬁcult to live a fulﬁlling life. Shankly’s wife and team members are little more than names, his daughters are always offstage, and he has nothing to fall back on after he leaves the game. Shankly thinks of football in terms of salvation and redemption, and compares the elusive Football Association Cup to the Holy Grail. T hese mora l qua nda r ies, like those in “The Odyssey” and “The Aeneid,” only enrich Peace’s ambitious novel. As both postmodern epic and ultimate sports novel, “Red or Dead” is a winner.
