Romney Causes a Stir in Britain Candidate criticizes the preparations for Olympics in London

.&

CHARLES DHARAPAK/AP

Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overseas tour got off to a troubling start in Britain on Thursday as he tried in backto-back meetings with British officials to defuse a controversy he sparked when he publicly questioned Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preparedness to host the Olympic Games. Romney, making his ďŹ rst foray on the international stage as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, told NBC News shortly after arriving in London on Wednesday that he found the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal preparations â&#x20AC;&#x153;disconcerting.â&#x20AC;? The candidate, who ran the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, said of the London Games, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to know just how well it will turn out.â&#x20AC;? The comments drew a sharp rebuke from Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday, on the eve of the Opening Ceremonies, and Romney spent much of the ďŹ rst full dayy of his foreign trip repeat-

Mitt Romney meets with British Prime Minister David Cameron Thursday in London.

?dj[hdWj_edWbJekh Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Britain, where the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders boast of its long-standing â&#x20AC;&#x153;special relationshipâ&#x20AC;? with the United States, was expected to be the easiest stop, diplomatically speaking, on his weeklong foreign tour.

edly lavishing praise on Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympics effort at the beginning of meetings with Cameron and other top ofďŹ cials. Romney, meanwhile, passed on several opportunities to publicly articulate any speciďŹ cs of his foreign policy. He told reporters he talked with British leaders about the global economy and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot spots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Syria, Iran, Egypt and Afghanistan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but insisted that he

would not describe his positions in public or private while traveling on foreign soil. But Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments on the Olympics seemed to overshadow a day in which Romney had hoped to polish his diplomatic credentials. In Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interview with â&#x20AC;&#x153;NBC Nightly Newsâ&#x20AC;? anchor Brian Williams, Romney cited problems with security stafďŹ ng in casting doubt on Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to run a mistake-free games. Cameron responded Thursday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see beyond doubt that Britain can deliver.â&#x20AC;? In a possible swipe at Salt Lake City, which hosted the Olympics that Romney organized, he added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.â&#x20AC;?

Chick-fil-A Fight Rages Gay marriage stance by company prompts boycotts, support

5243 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA

Tel: 703-751-7868

www.tailoredman.com

7jbWdjW All of a sudden, biting into a fried chicken sandwich has become a political statement. Chick-fil-A is standing firm in its opposition to gay marriage after president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family.” Gay rights groups have called for a boycott and the Jim Henson Co. pulled its Muppet toys from kids’ meals, directing its revenue from the toys to GLAAD, a leading gay rights organization. Meanwhile, politicians in Boston and Chicago told the chain it is not welcome there. Recently, a Chicago alderman vowed to block a Chickfil-A proposed in his district, and

AFFORDABLE, CONVENIENT DEGREES “I’m achieving the goals that I’ve always dreamed about. I’m becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be. Through my studies at Trinity, I am obtaining success.”

8WYaijeho The Cathy family has never hid its Southern Baptist faith. Since Dan Cathy’s father, Truett, opened the first Chick-fil-A in 1967, the restaurants have been closed on Sundays. Chick-fil-A posted more than $4.1 billion in sales last year, most of it below the MasonDixon Line. University of Georgia marketing professor Sundar Bharadwaj said the company is well-positioned to come through the criticism relatively unscathed because Chick-fil-A basically reflects the politics of its customers. (AP)

Mayor Rahm Emanuel supported him, saying, “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.” Last Friday, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino wrote in a letter to Cathy: “There is no place for discrimination on Boston’s Freedom Trail and no place for your company alongside it.” Across the Bible Belt, where most of the 1,600 restaurants are situated, Christian conservatives have thrown their support behind the Atlanta-based company, promising to buy chicken sandwiches

and waffle fries Wednesday for “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” At a downtown Atlanta Chickfil-A on Thursday, customers were divided. “The Bible says homosexuality is wrong. [Cathy’s] absolutely right,” Marci Troutman said. Her business partner, Steve Timpson, said he chose not to eat at Chick-fil-A. Nearby, Dustin Keller offered another view of Cathy: “It’s his opinion. He’s entitled to it. I’m just here to eat.” BILL BARROW (AP)

For months, the identity of the boy who was sexually assaulted in the locker room showers by Jerry Sandusky was one of the biggest mysteries of the Penn State scandal. Now, for the first time, a man has come forward publicly to claim he was that boy, and he is threatening to sue the university. Lawyers for the man, who was not named, said Thursday they have done an extensive investigation and gathered “overwhelming evidence” on details of the abuse by Sandusky, the former assistant football coach convicted of using his position at Penn State and as head of a youth charity to molest boys over a period of 15 years.

“Our client has to live the rest of his life not only dealing with the effects of Sandusky’s childhood sexual abuse, but also with the knowledge that many powerful adults ... put their own interests and the interests of a child predator above their legal obligations to protect him,” the lawyers said in a news release. Sandusky Un iversit y President Rodney Erickson and the board of trustees, a school spokesman said, “have publicly emphasized that their goal is to find solutions that rest on the principle of justice for the victims.” (AP)

Prosecutors have charged the wife of ousted Chinese politician Bo Xilai and a family aide with the murder of a British businessman, the government said Thursday, pushing ahead a case at the center of a messy political scandal that unsettled Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership ahead of a delicate power transition. The state-run Xinhua News Agency reported that the recent indictment said Boâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Gu Kailai, had a falling out with Briton Neil Heywood over money. Gu and the aide, Zhang Xiaojun, are alleged to have poisoned Heywood together, the report said. The brief report is the ďŹ rst ofďŹ cial news that the case against Gu is proceeding since the announcement three months ago that she and Zhang were being investigated and that Bo was being suspended from the powerful Politburo. Unmentioned in the Xinhua report was

The 41-year-old British businessman was found dead in China in November. His death was attributed initially to a heart attack or excessive drinking, but the British government formally asked Chinese authorities to reopen an investigation into Heywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death.

Bo was one of Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most powerful and charismatic politicians. The son of a revolutionary veteran and party secretary of the metropolitan area of Chongqing, he was a rising star. But on March 15, Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official news agency announced that Bo had lost his job.

The wife of Bo Xilai had a falling out with Heywood over money and worried it would threaten her and her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety, according to an indictment charging her and an aide with killing Heywood. Officials have suggested that Gu would face severe punishment. (T WP/AP)

While no fossils have been found from these people, they did leave a calling card in present-day Africans: snippets of foreign DNA. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one way that genetic material could have made it into modern human populations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geneticists like euphemisms, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about sex,â&#x20AC;? said

He said present-day Europeans show no evidence of the foreign DNA, meaning the mystery people were likely conďŹ ned to Africa.

These genetic leftovers do not resemble DNA from any modernday humans. The foreign DNA also does not resemble Neanderthal DNA, which shows up in the DNA of some modern-day Europeans, Akey said. That means the newly identiďŹ ed DNA came from an unknown group. The ďŹ nd offers more evidence that for thousands of years, modern-looking humans shared Earth with evolutionary cousins who died out.

News of Guâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prosecution signals that the leadership has closed ranks and reached a general agreement about the case as well as arrangements to install a younger group of leaders later this year. By making the announcement on the eve of the London Olympics, the leadership also likely hopes that public attention will be absorbed watching the Chinese team, said Cheng Li of the Brookings Institution in Washington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have to try to show solidarity, because if they do not do that the consequences are alarming. It would undermine social stabilityâ&#x20AC;? by sending a signal about divisions in the ranks, Li said. In a sign that the release of the news was carefully managed, the Xinhuaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report was read on state television and posted on ofďŹ cial mainstream news sites. But it appeared to have been scrubbed off popular microblogs, where Bo and his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s names remain banned search terms. (AP/ THE WASHINGTON POST )

There are countless similarities between transit die-hards and top athletes. It takes some of us hours a day to “train.” We have to warm up (after waiting on a frigid outdoor platform in the winter) and cool down (after escaping from a hot car in the summer). And we’re hoping to take home the silver one day — or rather, have the Silver take us home from Dulles Airport.

D.C. to Study Traffic Cam Revenue

New task force will weigh whether fines are too expensive MWi^_d]jed

Man Sought in Abduction Of Ripken’s Mother

The amount of revenue D.C. has generated from traffic cameras in this fiscal year as of June 7. ( T WP)

— D.C. COUNCIL MEMBER TOMM Y W ELL S, D-WARD 6, ON THE NEED FOR BALANCING THE

D.C. Council member Tommy Wells has formed a task force to explore whether fines issued by automated traffic cameras are taking too much from motorists’ wallets. Traffic cameras in the District first began expanding under former Mayor Adrian Fenty’s administration, a trend that Mayor Vincent Gray has continued. As the cameras have increased, the revenue that tickets generate

Smithsonian Names Natural History Director

PURPOSE OF THE CITY’S TRAFFIC CAMERAS

has also soared. According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, the cameras brought in a record $55 million in fiscal 2011 and are expected to far exceed that figure this year. Wells, D-Ward 6, said some fines have risen by as much as 500 percent over the past five years. Worried that residents now view the cameras as a tax instead of a safe-

ty device, Wells said the task force will work this summer to find the appropriate balance between safety and revenue. Wells plans to use the task force recommendations to revisit the fine issue this fall when the council returns from summer recess. A chief concern could be whether the city can afford to decrease

fines. Though city finances are stable, recent budget debates have shown that the council can get bogged down for days over how to find a few million dollars in a $9.4 billion budget. Some pedestrian and bicycling activists could also question a lowering of fines, arguing that they serve as a deterrent against reckless motorists. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The Race Is On

Phelps and Lochte meet again to settle who’s best in the pool Im_cc_d]

There’s nothing like a good rivalry to get the competitive juices flowing. At the Olympic pool in London, get ready to savor Michael Phelps vs. Ryan Lochte. They are the world’s two greatest swimmers, and their headto-head races at the U.S. Olympic trials were downright epic. Of course, that was merely a tantalizing warm-up for the events that really matter in Britain. “You can probably count on there being some other close races in the next couple of weeks,” Phelps said. Already the winningest Olympian ever with 14 gold medals, Phelps will swim seven more events in London in what he insists will be his final meet as a competitive

swimmer. The 27-year-old has long stated his plans to retire as soon as his hands hit the wall for the final time at these Games. Lochte has no plans to quit the sport, and the only parting gift he’d like to send to his friendly rival is a couple of Olympic silver medals, which is actually a color Phelps doesn’t have. “It’s hard to say who is the best swimmer,” said Lochte, who beat Phelps twice at the 2011 world championships but lost to him three out of four times at the U.S. trials. “We’re both great racers, and we have been going back and forth for so long.”

There are other compelling stories, from Japanese star Kosuke Kitajima trying to sweep the men’s Olympic breaststroke events for the third-straight time to sprint stars James Magnussen of Australia (known as “The Missile”) and the tongue-twisting Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands (who playfully tells anyone who asks how her name is pronounced, “Just like you write it”). But two swimmers figure to stand above all others at these Games: Phelps and Lochte. Phelps qualified in eight Olympic events, giving him a chance to match his record haul of gold med-

als from the Beijing Games four years ago. But he dropped the 200meter freestyle, believing a slightly smaller program would give him a better chance to succeed, considering he didn’t train nearly as hard for these Olympics as he did leading up to 2008. Plus, racing seven times instead of eight removes any pressure to repeat his Great Haul of China, when he broke Mark Spitz’s iconic record for most golds at one Olympics. That leaves him with two races against Lochte: the 200 and 400 individual medleys. The laidback Floridian, known for his wild wardrobe, gaudy jewelry and blurt-

Michael Phelps

High-tech speed suits or not, Michael Phelps says swimming records will be broken at the London Olympics. Phelps won a record eight golds in Beijing four years ago, the focus of a swim meet that produced 25 world records, including seven by the American in Speedo’s LZR Racer suit. Forty-three records fell at the 2009 worlds in Rome. FINA, swimming’s governing body, banned the high-tech bodysuits beginning in 2010 after swimmers and officials said they may artificially boost performance. “It doesn’t matter, if somebody wants a record it’s going to be broken,” Phelps said. (BLOOMBERG)

ing out nonsensical words such as “jeah,” won both events at the 2011 worlds, beating Phelps with a world-record time in the 200 and easily taking the longer race with Phelps sitting out. Phelps, the two-time defending Olympic champion in both, returned to the 400 IM — which takes place Saturday — only this year after vowing in Beijing to never swim the grueling race again. Lochte beat him by a fairly comfortable margin at the trials, but Phelps came back to win the 200 IM — the two swimmers never more than inches apart, swimming virtually in sync for all four laps. Look for more of the same in London, especially since Phelps has been paying attention to Lochte’s repeated declarations that “this is my time.” PAUL NEWBERRY (AP)

There’s no need for a double take. Yes, that will be Greg Louganis you see during the television coverage. But, no, the greatest American diver isn’t coming out of retirement. Instead, he’s serving as a mentor for the team, which didn’t win a medal at the past two Olympics.

Not that the U.S. women’s team would be a favorite anyway, but it got stuck in a “group of death” that includes Argentina (the expected gold medal champion), past Olympic winners Germany and Australia, as well as New Zealand and South Africa. But the Yanks did down Argentina in the Pan American Games in October. Do you believe in miracles?

Neymar’s biggest fan is none other than Pele, who says the 20-year-old Brazilian is a better player than Argentine superstar Lionel Messi. Now Neymar has a chance to prove it, though this tournament is really just a warm-up to the 2014 World Cup for the Mohawksporting youngster. On the women’s side, Abby Wambach and crew received a hero’s welcome after last year’s World Cup. They’d gladly take the same reception — but a different outcome on the field — after the London Games. Seventeen of the 18 members of the U.S. squad that lost to Japan in the heartbreaking final are back, and they will likely have to get through the Japanese to win the gold.

For the child in all of us is the sport (added to the Olympics in 2000) that features the ever-popular fiffus and triffus — not to mention the Rudolph. Perhaps not surprisingly, the Chinese are favored to twist and turn their way to several medals.

Jh_Wj^bed Since the event was added to the Olympics in 2000, the U.S. has a lone bronze to show for its efforts. Gwen Jorgensen, who completed his first triathlon in 2010, could change that. The swimmer at the University of Wisconsin was second at an International Triathlon Union World Championship Series event last year in London — on the same course she’ll compete here.

MWj[hFebe U.S. captain Brenda Villa is arguably the country’s least famous three-time Olympic medalist, but such is the nature of a sport referenced most often in pop culture by “Star Trek: Enterprise.” Villa is still missing a gold from her résumé — two silvers came after one-goal losses in the final — so winning one would be a great cap on her noteworthy career.

Nats Well-Armed For Stretch Run Strasburg’s coming shutdown isn’t likely to spur a big trade J^[DWj_edWbi For seven innings on Wednesday, Stephen Strasburg threw everything he had at the New York Mets and, more often than not, hitters sulked back to the dugout with their heads turned to their shoes. After 11 strikeouts in those seven innings, he was gone, the team content to watch the bullpen finish the job. But there was also this reality: Strasburg was seven innings closer to shutdown day as the Nats entered a four-game series in Milwaukee. There has been no firm number put on the innings limit that will be imposed on the right-hander, in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, but general manager Mike Rizzo acknowledges Strasburg’s season will end early.

It’s likely the Nationals will be in the midst of a September pennant race when that day comes. Yet this week, as the Braves, Dodgers and other teams with postseason aspirations tried desperately to deal for a frontline starting pitcher ahead of next Tuesday’s trade deadline, the Nationals have been quiet, content. “I don’t see any emergency move needed,” manager Davey Johnson said. “I like the way our club is put together, and I don’t see any glaring weakness.” Strasburg’s absence will be a blow, of course.

Search Beyond Craigslist A host of digital tools makes it easier than ever to find a home you’ll love Apartment-Hunting

KEVIN DIETSCH/FOR EXPRESS

When Tanya Gupta, 42, began hunting for an apartment in Washington, D.C., she didn’t limit herself to Craigslist. Gupta, a Virginia resident, is in the market for a two-bedroom spot in Adams Morgan or Penn Quarter. And she’s got a very well-defined strategy for finding her dream place. In addition to obsessively checking the online bulletin board Craigslist (Craigslist.org) for new listings, she scours neighborhoods on foot, contacting building managers when she finds an apartment she likes. She’s also downloaded a handful of helpful apps to her iPhone, which she relies on when she’s out and about. Gupta’s multipronged approach might sound like overkill. But anyone who’s actually tried to find a perfect CONTINUED ON R3

Ready to Rent’s listings directory makes finding a new place easy.

When Meredith Pringle, 25, moved to D.C. from Chicago, she used a real estate agent, at no charge, from the website Urban Igloo to help with her apartment hunt.

pad knows Washington’s finicky housing market demands constant vigilance, grit and a bit of luck. That’s why it pays to employ a variety of hunting approaches. “Craigslist was helpful, but there are some people that advertise there that just sort of want you to go to their website,” she says. “The apps are good because they offer a lot of different functionality.” Two of her favorites, PadMapper (Padmapper.com) and LiveLovely (Livelovely.com), let you search for apartments at your price point in a specific area and send you alerts when new spots become available. Smartphone apps are especially important when you’re out hunting for apartments. “The market is so competitive,” says Sol Garger, the project manager for Trulia’s rental app. “If you find a great spot but wait [to contact the owner] until you get home, good chance it’ll be gone.” T hat ’s why Tr ulia (Tr ulia .com), which track s housing trends nationwide, created the Trulia Rentals app. It alerts users to rentals that have gone on the market in the past 24 hours. It also keeps track of your neighborhood preferences and rental needs. (Are you looking for a studio? Want a pool? The app has you covered.) “We want to be a one-stop shop,” Garger says. You don’t, however, have to have a smartphone to get digital help when apartment-hunting. If you have your heart set on a

particular neighborhood or have specific requirements for your future apartment, consider signing up for an email list. Kesher Israel, a synagogue in Georgetown, runs a Housing listserve (Kesher.org/community/ housing.shtml), an email list that sends alerts about available housing to anyone who is signed up. The listings are geared toward Orthodox Jews looking for housing within walking distance of a synagogue and a kosher kitchen, but anyone can sign up. “If people know of housing opening up or if someone was looking for a roommate or an apartment, it’s an easy way to share,” says Shoshana DanonPerk ins, an administrator at Kesher Israel. Looking to live in a particular

neighborhood? Sign up for that neighborhood’s email lists and check out the neighborhood’s blogs. Residents often note vacant properties in both places. There are also websites that help people with certain needs find an apartment, including sites for animal owners (Peoplewithpets .com/pet f r iendlyapa r t ments .asp) and those with disabilities (Disability.gov/housing). Inter ns shou ld check out the Washington Intern Student Housing website (Internsdc.com) or the summer housing pages at local universities. The University of Maryland (Umd.och101.com) and American University (American. edu/ocl/housing/Off-CampusHousing-Postings.cfm) are good places to start. If you’re moving to the area

Looking for a Washington-area rental? Your iPhone might be your most faithful ally. There are a number of apps out there (many free) to help with your hunt. Below, a couple to check: MyNewPlace: This GPSenabled app will show you nearby apartments as soon as you get close to them. (Mynewplace .com, available for iPhone and Android) Apartments.com App: Another free, GPS-ready app that lets you search by city and ZIP code. (Apartments.com, available for iPhone or Android) PadMapper: Enter an address and PadMapper will show nearby listings from a variety of websites, along with property descriptions and contact info.

from another city, an agent who can act as an ally is a good option. Meredith Pringle, 25, was mov ing to Washington from Chicago and could spend only one weekend in the city. She hunted online but struggled to connect with landlords. “With Craigslist and those other websites, you never know who you’ll hear back from,” she says. Then she stumbled on Urban Igloo (Urbanigloo.com), which offers prospective renters an agent to help them search. It’s free (landlords pay a fee to get listed). Pringle was able to tell an agent her price range and her desire to live near George Washington University, where she attends graduate school. The agent made appointments ahead of time, and when Pringle was in town, she swung by. She settled on a junior one-bedroom in Logan Circle. It’s a neighborhood she never would have considered without Urban Igloo’s advice, but she loves her apartment. “I’m never moving,” she says. AMANDA ERICKSON (FOR E XPRES S)

KEVIN DIETSCH/FOR EXPRESS

After the birth of her second child, Sara Kirner’s family had outgrown their two-bedroom Bethesda condo. She and her husband, Kevin, bought a house in Silver Spring but decided to hold on to their former property and rent it out. When Kirner was approached by college friend Dora Hunter about renting the condo, she had no hesitations becoming a landlord to a pal. From a you ng a ge, we’re all taught to share, so it seems like a no-brainer to rent out that extra room in your house or your former bachelor pad to a buddy. But becoming a landlord— especially to a friend—comes with serious responsibilities, and if you don’t approach the task in the right way, you could f ind yourself losing money, a friend, or both. “It’s very difficult to be businesslike with friends,” says Janet Portman, an attorney and the author of a number of books on landlord-tenant issues, including “Every Landlord’s Legal Guide” (Nolo, $39.99, Nolo.com). “You need to understand from the beginning that either the friendship or the business relationship could suffer.” To prevent that, it’s wise for the two parties to put things in writing. “A lot of friends think they don’t need a lease, but I always recommend that people have a

W hen things aren’t clear, it can lead to resentment, disagreements and, in the worstcase scenario, situations that wind up in court. K irner used a standard lease found on the Montgomery County government’s website (Montgomerycountymd.gov) as the basis for her agreement with Hunter. She also created a move-out checklist for when Hunter’s lease is up, after talking with her aunt, who owns several rental units in upstate New York. “We spelled out everything for when the time comes,” she says. If you and your renter are sharing the same condo, be aware that even the most carefully crafted lease might not help you deal with personality conflicts. “When you’re renting a room to someone, it’s far more likely that there will be conf lict over Continued on page 21

KEVIN DIETSCH/FOR EXPRESS

all those intangible things that a lease doesn’t cover, like the fact that this person watches TV all of the time,” says Mark Wellborn, editor-in-chief of UrbanTurf, a website that focuses on the D.C. area’s residential real estate market (Dc.urbanturf.com). W hile it might be hard to talk finances with a friend, it’s a conversation that needs to take place. “The person who owns the rental unit should treat the friend exactly like they would treat a renter [who’s a stranger],” Wellborn says. That means running a credit check and ensuring that the friend-turned-renter has the funds to cover a security deposit and rent. “If your friend balks at that, that’s your first hurdle,” Portman says. “If you don’t get that credit report, you’re taking a chance.” The landlord also needs to understand how the situation will affect his or her own finances, i n c lu d i n g t h e p o s s i bl e t a x implications of the rental income collected and the costs of any permits or licenses required. “Most people don’t need to get an occupancy permit if they’re just renting a room inside their house,” Fairbanks says. “But if they want to be able to enforce their lease, I recommend that they do get a business license.” Soon-to-be landlords should also check to see if there are any rules or regulations governing their ability to rent their particular space. Some condo associations, for example, might not allow an owner to rent

out an extra bedroom in their unit. And basement rooms can pose all kinds of challenges. One common issue is whether the space meets code. “A large number of basement rooms in D.C. don’t, because they don’t have the proper fire exits or have illegal kitchens,” Fairbanks says. And check your insurance policy. A s ma ny D.C.-a rea dwellers recently learned, you never know when a freak storm might cause damage to your home. You might think your homeowners insurance policy will come to the rescue no matter what, but it may not cover someone renting a room in your home. “You need to inform your homeowners insurance that you’re renting a room,” Fairbanks says. Your rate may go up, but Fairbanks says it’s worth it. If the renter’s room is damaged you don’t want

7Gk_Ya9^[Yab_ij\ehFej[dj_WbBWdZbehZi Thinking of renting out your condo or a room in it? Here are some things to do before your tenant starts moving stuff in:

Talk about finances with your renter and run a credit check on him or her Figure out how renting will affect your own finances, including the tax implications and the costs of any licenses or extra insurance you’ll need Make sure your condo association allows you to rent your space Get the space you are renting up to code, with proper fire exits and windows Check your homeowners insurance policy and tell your insurance company about your plans to rent

to be on the hook for damage or get into a standoff with the renter about who’s paying for what. It’s also possible for your renter to get his or her own policy. For Kirner, there was an added

level of comfort, because her tenant, Hunter, was becoming a landlord herself. Hunter’s recent marriage necessitated bigger digs, leading her to become Kirner’s tenant. Hunter then had to rent out the

studio she owns. “She knows both sides,” Kirner says. “So we’re not going to get into one of those situations where someone is saying, ‘No, that’s your responsibility.’ She gets it.” Even when all the stars seem to align, Portman still advises friends to tread carefully when entering a landlord-tenant relationship. “How often have you heard someone say that their best friend is their best friend, but they wouldn’t want to live with them?” she asks. “There’s some wisdom behind that.” BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRESS)

It has been a controversial question in the home real estate market for years: Is there extra green when you sell green? Do houses with lots of energy-saving and sustainability features sell for more than houses without them? If so, by how much? Some studies have shown that consumersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; willingness to pay more for Energy Star and other greenrated homes tends to diminish during tough economic times. Others have found that greencertiďŹ ed houses sell for at least a modest premium over similar but less-efďŹ cient homes.

/

The average amount a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value increases if it has a green certification label, according to a new study of 1.6 million California homes.

But now a new study involving an unusually large sample of 1.6 million homes sold in California between 2007 and early 2012 has documented that, holding all other variables constant, a green certification label on a house adds an average of 9 percent to its selling value. Resea rchers a lso found something they dubbed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prius effectâ&#x20AC;?: Buyers in areas where consumer sentiment in support of conservation is relatively high â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as measured by the percentage of hybrid-auto registrations in local ZIP codes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are more willing to pay premiums for green-certiďŹ ed houses t han buyers in areas where hybrid registrations are lower. The research was conducted by

They then ran analyses to determine how much green labeling contributed to the selling price, eliminating all other factors contained in the real estate records: locational effects, school districts, crime rates, time period of sale, views and amenities such as swimming pools. The 9 percent average price premium for green-rated homes is roughly in line with studies conducted in Europe, where energy-eff iciency labeling on new and resale houses is far more commonplace. L abel i ng i n t he U. S. i s a politically sensitive issue. The National Association of Realtors has lobbied Congress to thwart adoption of any form of mandatory labeling of existing houses, arguing that adopting such a system could have negative effects. A loss of value at resale because of labeling would be disastrous, the association argues, particularly coming out of a housing downturn. KENNETH R. HARNEY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Lauren Bowles “TRUE BLOOD” STAR, D.C. NATIVE, YOGINI, HIKER On HBO’s campy-vamp soap “True Blood” (Sun., 9 p.m.), actress Lauren Bowles plays Wiccan waitress Holly Cleary, a Southern-fried resident of fictional Bon Temps, La. In real life, she’s a D.C. native, now living in Los Angeles but missing her capital roots. We caught up with her midway through Season 5. On “True Blood,” you have such a good Southern accent. Did you have to work hard at it? Isn’t it crazy? I have some family in North Carolina, so maybe that’s it. But when I auditioned for the show, I could do the bayou drawl thing. So no vocal coaching, nope. Why do you think people love “True Blood”? I attribute it all to Alan Ball [the show’s creator]. I’m a huge fan of

his — “American Beauty” rocked my world. It was the first time I’d seen human pathos mixed with dark comedy. And I think “True Blood” is a heightened version of that. It’s all fluff, but it’s still about the search for love. How do you channel your character Holly’s inner witch? Well, since I moved to California, I’m Miss Alterna-Chick. I like my herbs and my yoga. So when I started reading about Wiccanism, I realized it wasn’t off-the-wall and Satanic — it’s really more about nature and feminine energy. What’s the biggest challenge being on the show? “True Blood” is almost all fun and games. But I’ve got some mighty short shorts I’ve got to wear, so

I was first drawn to it as a workout. But then, after a while, I got really into the mind-body benefits. The more I got in touch with that and my breath, the more my body changed. What do you miss about Washington? I loved growing up in D.C., even though I was ready to move on when I did. It had the cultural benefits of growing up in a big city, but at the same time, you’re in this historic town. And your parents still live here. What do you like to do when you come back? I’m much more of a tourist now than I was growing up. It’s just cool to drive past the Jefferson Memorial and look out wistfully. And I love walking by the C&O Canal and going to the museums.

To which the Manolo can only reply: You cannot overnight change your man from the Tom Arnold into the Tom Selleck. You must work deliberately, and politely, using positive reinforcement and strategic praise. For the example, “Oh, honey, you look so much better since you stopped wearing buckskin and shaved off your Grizzly Adams beard.” Or, “Darling, I’m so glad you finally threw out those too-small jeans with the hole in the seat. I’m just sorry it had to be the police who told you to cover up. Here, I bought you this pair of styling, flat-front khakis.” You must use the well-thoughtout gifts to nudge him gently.

9ed[#ijhkYj_edPed[ Chill out at home with ice cream you churn up with fruit, chocolate and more The heat of the summer is not a great motivator, so there has to be a rich reward for any manual labor. Still, possibility of good food can serve as a fine inspiration even when the mercury peaks. You drag the grill out of the garage and scrub it clean so you can chow down on hamburgers; you weed and water the garden so you can feast on fresh tomatoes; and you spend a little time toiling away in the kitchen so you can enjoy homemade ice cream. Sure, the effort it will take to DIY a frozen batch of delish won’t be as major as that of 16th-century Mughal emperors, who used relays of horses to ferry blocks of ice from the Hindu Kush to Delhi, where it went into fruit sorbets. (And, please, leave the hand-crank ice-cream maker you might dimly recall from your childhood to Luddite Brooklyn artisanal dessert fans.) These days, creating your own pints just requires an electric icecream machine, sold for as little as $20 at kitchen stores, Target and the like. Still, don’t expect to produce Cherry Garcia or something else complex on your first turn at the churn. Beginners should start with American-style or Philadelphia-style ice cream, an egg-free freeze that requires fewer steps to make than a custard-based version. “It’s difficult to mess up,” says Molly Moon

Neitzel, author of “Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream” ($22, Sasquatch Books) and the owner of several ice creameries in Seattle. “But don’t worry if you do screw up. It happens. Even to me!” Step one in ice-cream making is popping the bowl of your ice-cream machine into the freezer for at least 12 hours. Then, you’ll make a heavy cream base. Moon Neitzel recommends generally using two cups of heavy cream and one cup of whole milk, along with sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook this over a medium heat for about 15-20 minutes in a heavy bottomed saucepan until the sugar has dissolved, while you whisk it occasionally and make sure it doesn’t scald or boil over. This base then needs to be fully cooled down in the refrigerator for an hour or two before moving on to the next step. Then transfer it to the machine to churn it for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. “Look for the ice cream surface to be frosty and not have a shiny sheen,” Moon Neitzel advises. “Then you know it’s done.” Move the ice cream into a heavyduty glass container, so it can spend eight hours firming up in the deep freeze. Duane Copeland, executive pastry chef at the Source (575 Pennsylvania Ave. NW; 202-637-6100), recommends pressing parchment paper down firmly onto the top of the ice cream. “The longer you keep oxygen out, the fewer ice crystals you’ll have,” he explains. Once you’ve mastered a basic, say vanilla, you can experiment with new recipes — chocolate, blueberry, lychee-banana swirl. Or, try to

<hecJh[[jeJh[Wj Working with fruit as a mix-in presents challenges. Some — such as grilled peaches (shown) — you actually want to use when they’re underripe. “A lot of the flavors turn into a simple sugar taste when it gets ripe,” says Noah Dan, founder of Pitango Gelato (413 7th St. NW; 202-885-9607). Sugar content can be manipulated easily, so what you’re going after is the essence of fruit. Other times, such as when you’re working with a fruit like bananas, which get sweeter and more flavorful as they ripen, use slightly overripe produce.

9WdZoBWdZi If you’d rather use candy or cookies as a mix-in, don’t go crazy. “Sometimes too much is too much,” warns Duane Copeland, chef at the Source. “It will affect the texture of your ice cream and make it hard to scoop. Things like Snickers bar chunks freeze hard.” About 1 cup of sweet treats is appropriate per batch. D.C. food blogger Jana Erwin (Cherryteacakes .com) puts the goodies in after the base has been churned in the machine, right before it goes into the freezer. become the Ben or Jerry of Bloomingdale and add fresh fruit or something else sweet to your cream. Be cautious if you want to add mix-ins, because they can ruin a batch if handled improperly. Anything that you incorporate that has high water content (fresh berries, juicy citrus) is going to add crunchy crystals to the finished product. To stop this, add some sugar to the fruit and cook it down until it becomes jammy and syrupy first. As a further preventative measure, Jana Erwin, who runs the recipe blog Cherry Tea Cakes (Cherryteacakes.com), recommends swirling a packet of gelatin (approximately 2 teaspoons) into the base mix before it goes into the ice-cream maker. No matter what f lavor you choose to make, it’s going to be worth all the hard work. Especially when you’re enjoying a bowl full of frozen goodness while perched on the porch watching the sunset (or huddled next to the air-conditioning unit cursing global warming).

Combine all the ingredients in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking occasionally. Just before the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat. Using tongs, carefully fish out the vanilla bean pods and, with the back of a knife, scrape the seeds into the pot. Put the scraped pods back into the pot and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a shallow pan or bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly, 1 to 2 hours. When the mixture is completely chilled, remove the vanilla bean pods and discard. Pour the mixture into an ice-cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Using a rubber spatula, transfer the ice cream to a glass or plastic freezer container.

In a stand mixer, stir together sugar, cocoa, chili powder and cinnamon. Add egg yolks and blend on low. With the mixer remaining on low, add cream in a little at a time. Once all cream is incorporated, continue to mix until soft peaks are formed. Chill mixture in refrigerator for roughly half an hour. When ready, pour cream mixture into the ice-cream maker.

MELINDA SUE GORDON

From left: Richard Ayoade, Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill must defend Earth from an alien invasion in “The Watch.”

J^[h[=e[ij^[ D[_]^Xeh^eeZ Unfortunate timing aside, ‘The Watch’ is wacky enough to win over eager viewers <_bcH[l_[m Is it ever a good time for “The Watch”? First, the comedy — about a neighborhood watch group protecting an Ohio suburb from invading aliens — had to change its name from “Neighborhood Watch,” when that term became so highly charged after the killing of an unarmed teenager in Florida earlier this year. But today, “The Watch,” which stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade, creates another untimely discomfort. At

one point in this raunchy, playfully vulgar comedy, Stiller’s character dons a T-shirt emblazoned with a logo that reads “No More Murders.” It’s played for laughs in a movie that indulges the same fetishized humor around violence that has become as cherished a rite of summer movies as guns themselves have become cherished rights. With Colorado and the rest of the country still reeling, some viewers might not find “The Watch’s” blithe shoot-em-ups as much fun as they might have a few weeks ago. Then again, the premise of the movie is so goofy, the performances so winningly wacky, that a willing — indeed eager — suspension of disbelief has rarely been easier. As “The Watch” opens, Evan (Stiller) explains in a voice-over why

he’s so happy living in the suburban idyll of Glenview, Ohio — where he lives with his pretty wife, Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), manages a nearby Costco and pursues a devotion on civic engagement that borders on the obsessive. When one of his night watchmen is gruesomely killed on the job, Evan immediately organizes a group to prevent further attacks. Soon, Evan is joined by

Bob (Vaughn), Franklin (Hill) and Jamarcus (Ayoade) in a bumbling series of encounters with an unseen, green-goo-spewing foe. “The Watch” was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Spiked with cheerful profanity and giddy sexual references, “The Watch” is a hard-R comedy with a soft heart at its center. Vaughn and Hill find a particularly amusing rhythm, with Hill’s sotto voce patter providing a welltimed accompaniment to Vaughn’s soaring, motor-mouthed arias. Perfecting the persona he honed in the “Night at the Museum” and “Meet the Parents” movies, Stiller makes for a smooth, sympathetic straight man whose earnest desire to make the world a better place can only end in hilarious, hyperbolic disaster. In fact, most of the players here are simply delivering iterations of characters they’ve done before. And “The Watch” takes the same ethos of male bonding, obsession with sex and sardonic violence that has proved so profitable in recent years on yet another summer spin. The tires may be in need of changing pretty soon, but for now the jalopy still runs. ANN HORNADAY (THE WASHINGTON POST )

8WYaijeho

Movie Marketing 101 Fox opted to change the title of “The Watch” from “Neighborhood Watch” after Trayvon Martin was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer earlier this year. “As the subject matter of this alien invasion comedy bears no relation whatsoever to the tragic events in Florida, the studio altered the title to avoid any accidental or unintended misimpression that it might,” Fox said in a statement. (AP)

7bieEf[d_d]0 Despite its title, audiences shouldn’t expect anything revolutionary from the fourth chapter in the “Step Up” franchise. At this point, “Step Up: Familiar Ground” or “Step Up: You’ve Seen All This Before” would be more accurate than “Step Up: Revolution.” In this one, poor but virtuous dancers Sean (Ryan Guzman, left) and Eddy plan flash mobs around South Beach’s stylish neighborhoods. Of course. SEAN O’CONNELL (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Be Kind, Be Kind When my son puts on his Batman costume, he doesn’t think of himself as a scraped-kneed, blond-headed boy in a polyester cape and cowl. He is Batman. Batman is brave. Batman beats bad guys. Batman doesn’t have to pick up his toys. I know Batman isn’t real. I know sometimes the credits roll before the bad guys get what’s coming to them. My favorite moment in all of Christopher Nolan’s 8oAh_ij[d “Batman” movies FW][#A_hXo comes from “Batman Begins,” and it reappears in “The Dark Knight Rises.” It’s when a young Officer Gordon — the future Commissioner Gordon — places a coat around Bruce Wayne’s shoulders after the boy’s parents have been killed. It’s a small, gentle action that follows a grand, horrific one. It’s the moment that starts Bruce Wayne on the path to becoming Batman rather than Bane. Both men are born in cruelty, but Bruce receives one small kindness, and that makes all the difference. The shootings on July 20 made us feel that Bane is real and that Batman remains fiction. After events like this, we either want to become Batman, the symbol of perfect justice, or we want to become Bane, the symbol of all-out vengeance. We cannot be Batman; we must not be Bane. But we can find tiny times when we can extend meaningful kindnesses to one another. We can be — should be — Commissioner Gordon. Read Kristen’s previous columns at: expressnightout.com/thereelist

WARNER BROS.

“A magical, MODERN-DAY LOVE STORY, one with razor-sharp edges and a tender heart.”

“The Dark Knight Rises” for the final time in the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. minutes) Christopher Nolan has made a completely satisfying movie, one steeped enough in self-contained mythology to reward hard-core fans while giving less invested viewers a rousing, adroitly executed piece of popcorn entertainment. The film starts off with a nervy piece of midair showmanship in which the movie’s villain, a terrorist thug named Bane, hijacks a CIA plane. Bane makes almost immediately for Gotham City, where Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has been living in wounded seclusion for the past eight years, since he took the rap for killing a city hero. Of course, there’s more to the story than that, a buried truth glancingly referred to in a weary speech delivered by police commissioner Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman), who is attending a charity event on the grounds of Wayne Manor. “The Dark Knight Rises” ends on a self-important note that would be insufferable if Nolan and Bale hadn’t so clearly earned it. A.H. ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT (PG, 87 minutes) The fourth “Ice Age” freshens up the 10-year-old franchise by shunning easy pop-culture jokes and embracing its weird side. Previous “Ice Age” installments drew inspiration from our planet’s climate changes, and “Continental Drift” is no different. Here, fissures caused by volcanic fault lines separate franchise regulars Sid, Diego and Manny from the latter’s family — wife, Ellie, and teenage daughter, Peaches. Efforts to reunite at a sinking land bridge force Manny and crew to battle a menacing ape who rules the Seven Seas from his pirate-shipshaped iceberg. “Continental Drift” does fall victim to an avoidable sequel trap

by adding too many new faces. What “Continental Drift” lacks in character development, however, it makes up for in visual wizardry. SE AN O’CONNELL MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE’S MOST WANTED (PG, 93 minutes) The third outing in the popular series of animated adventures about Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo may be the best of the bunch. To escape from Monaco — where our heroes have traveled from Africa searching for the airplane they hope will take them home — an order is given to shake the Monte Carlo animal control officer who is determined to stop them from leaving. A parade of laughs? That, you expect. What’s really surprising about “Madagascar 3” is just how moving it ultimately is, largely because of the emotionally engaging character animation. M.O. MAGIC MIKE (R, 110 minutes) A mellow, low-slung charm propels Steven Soderbergh’s film, which stars Channing Tatum as a stripper and is partly based on Tatum’s real-life experience. Tatum plays the title character, now 30, who for years has been a headline act at a Tampa strip club. When Mike meets a 19-year-old college dropout, he takes the young man under his wing and introduces him to the easy money, flowing booze and nonstop booty calls of his lifestyle. It tells a simple story of a young man finding himself, an older mentor reconsidering his life and discovering love, and the enduring power of a buff-and-bronzed hottie gyrating in a spangled codpiece. No moralizing, no deeper meanings — just a good, old-fashioned cinematic hen party. A.H. SAVAGES (R, 130 minutes) A candy-colored

black valentine to titillation, garish brutality and groovy post-fin-de-siecle excess, this ode to cinema’s most exploitative pleasures finds Oliver Stone chronicling America’s dark side at its most sun-kissed. As O explains in the detached, SoCal voiceover that threads through the film, she has been living in a blissed-out menage a trois in Laguna Beach with Chon and Ben, marijuana dealers who grow the best product in the country. When they come into the sights of a Mexican cartel, O is kidnapped and they become embroiled in a battle. The director manages to make an otherwise throwaway crime story chime with real-time politics, from the recession to the recent victory of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in Mexico. A.H. TED (R, 106 minutes) If you’ve seen the trailers for “Ted,” you’re hip to its high-concept premise: A little boy named Johnny Bennett gets a cuddly teddy bear for Christmas and, after making a wish, the bear begins to talk; 20 years later, Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) and Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) live together as roomies, generally avoiding the bothersome business of growing up. MacFarlane, the genial wisenheimer behind the animated television series “Family Guy,” has created a universe based largely on the same humor of that show, making “Ted” a probable hit with those viewers. “Ted” may be best enjoyed while enjoying the same mind-altering substances its protagonists ingest in such copious doses. Once the novelty wears off, though, so does the buzz. A.H. REVIEWS BY THE WASHINGTON POST’S ANN HORNADAY AND MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN. FOR FULL REVIEWS OF THESE AND OTHER FILMS SEE W W W.GOINGOUTGUIDE.COM/MOVIES.

The Man With the Frying Pan Marcus Samuelsson is doing pretty well for himself: He was the chef behind President Obama’s first state dinner, he won “Top Chef Masters” in 2010, and he has a new memoir out. You can see him cook at the Howard Theatre this weekend, in a show that includes a tasting and an autographed copy of his book, “Yes, Chef,” for every audience member. The Howard Theatre, 620 T St. NW; Sat., 7 p.m., $50; 202-803-2899, Thehowardtheatre.com. (Shaw)

Artist Chajana denHarder’s new one-day installation piece is called “Sleep.” Why? Because it consists of the artist, on the Corcoran’s performance bridge stage, attempting to sleep for seven hours. Part of the weekly “Take It to the Bridge” series, the work’s about simplicity and comfort in the public eye. Corcoran Gallery of Art, 500 17th St. NW; Sat., 10 a.m., free; 202-639-1700, Corcoran.org. (Farragut West)

Queen Elizabeth II will officially open the Games. If there is any real suspense to these events, it’s waiting to see who will light the Olympic flame. This year, NBC will stream or broadcast sporting events live online over the course of the Olympics.

The Opening Ceremonies, however, will be subject to what they used to call a “tape delay.” Some may complain about that, but you can’t blame the network for trying to attract as many viewers as possible for what is essentially a show. KE VIN MCDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)

The season premiere of Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue” (Sun., 9 p.m.) hits close to home. Nightlife expert Jon Taffer attempts to save Silver Spring’s struggling Piratz Tavern, transforming it from a hangout for grog-swilling pirate enthusiasts into a bland office-worker magnet called the Corporate Bar & Grill. If you followed the news in February, you know owner Tracy Rebelo and her staff weren’t enthusiastic about the changes, but now you can learn just how miserable the makeover made them. (E XPRESS)

“To be honest, we’re a little upset we didn’t catch wind of this until after the fact—we would have purchased carbon offset credits to assuage our pre-apocalyptic guilt just to try the dessert ... ‘an entire crispy rat head sat on each plate, mouth open and teeth jutting forward, and a back leg sat atop French toast...’” — GOTHAMIST.COM isn’t sure what to make of news that artist Laura Ginn, who offered $100 five-course meals of rat meat at a New York City gallery, didn’t use locally sourced rats at her event. The point of the event, she said, was to explore “post-apocalyptic themes of urban survival.”

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

Katherine Jackson insists she was not being held captive by her children.

A toy company is suing Lady Gaga for more than $10 million, claiming she sabotaged a deal to make a doll in her likeness that would play her music. MGA Entertainment, the maker of Bratz dolls, said it paid a $1 million advance to the company that handles Gaga’s brand. MGA claims that company then decided to back out of having the dolls “sing” Gaga songs. (AP)
