Nation Battle over migrant kids heats up Maine gubernatorial race

Closer to Home ...

In the whitest U.S. state, thousands of miles from the Mexican border, the debate over immigration is becoming a central issue in one of the nation’s most closely watched governor’s races. With its close-knit communities and a practice of labeling nonnatives as “from away,” Mainers have a reputation for being insular. But they have also embraced the need for immigrants as the state’s population ages and declines. So Republican Gov. Paul LePage roiled the cultural waters when he criticized the federal government’s placement of eight immigrant children in Maine without advising him. He said Monday that the federal government was ducking its responsibility by leaving the border unprotected and pushing the burden onto states. He said he worries about the financial impact if more children are placed in the state.

Maryland stepped up its efforts Monday to recruit foster parents and solicit other assistance from the public to help with the flood of unaccompanied migrant children coming into the country from Central America. An appeal for help was posted on the state website as Gov. Martin O’Malley met in Annapolis with a group of religious leaders for the second time in as many weeks to talk about ways to assist the federal government with the crisis. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

age could hurt Maine’s reputation as a welcoming home for immigrants. Immigrants fleeing violence in Central Africa are drawn to Maine in part because of its safe communities and wealth of faithbased organizations that provide assistance, said Sue Roche, executive director of the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project in Maine. “It’s unfortunate that the governor makes a statement like that and it gets more publicity than all the positive things that people are doing,” Roche said.

Since October, more t han 57,000 children, mostly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, have crossed the nation’s southern border illegally. The eight minors in Maine are a fraction of the thousands sent to states including New York, California and Florida. “If we have eight kids in the state right now and if there are any state dollars going there, there are eight Mainers not getting services,” he said during a visit to a homeless shelter in Lewiston. “There’s not

an endless pot of money up there.” LePage’s re-election campaign has attacked his Democratic opponent, U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, for not taking a clear stand on whether he would agree to shelter children in Maine. “[LePage’s] entire tactic is governing by division,” Michaud spokeswoman Lizzy Reinholt said Friday. “He has tried very hard to pit one community in Maine against another.” Immigration advocates say LeP-

EPA Hears Complaints From All Sides Denver Hundreds of people across the country lined up Tuesday to tell the Environmental Protection Agency that its new rules for power-plant pollution either go too far or not far enough. The agency is holding hearings this week in Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh and Washington on President Barack Obama’s plan to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 30 percent by 2030, with 2005 levels as the starting point. The rules are intended to curb global warming. Coal mines, electric utilities, labor unions, environmental groups, renewable energy companies, gov-

Significance The plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions will likely mark one of President Barack Obama’s biggest efforts in the final years of his presidency. Blocked from passing major climate change legislation in Congress, Obama has resorted to using executive authority under existing law to limit pollution. Federal officials have never before tried to restrict carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. (AP)

ernment agencies, religious and civil rights organizations and others sent representatives to the hearings. John Kinkaid, a commissioner in Moffat County, Colo., , told the EPA in Denver that the rules would devastate the economy in his area, home to a major power plant.

Defiant Hamas leader: No cease fire until demands met

KHALIL HAMRA (AP)

Israel unleashed its heaviest air and artillery assault of the Gaza war on Tuesday, destroying key symbols of Hamas control, shutting down the territory’s only power plant and leaving at least 128 Palestinians dead on the bloodiest day of the 22-day conflict. Despite devastating blows that left the packed territory’s 1.7 million people cut off from power and water and sent the overall death toll soaring past 1,200, Hamas’ shadowy military leader remained defiant as he insisted that the Islamic militants would not cease fire until its demands are met. The comments by Mohammed Deif in an audiotape broadcast on

a Hamas satellite TV channel cast new doubt on international ceasefire efforts. Aides to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Egypt was trying to bring Israeli and Palestinian delegations together in Cairo for

Tough New Sanctions Hit Russia Washington Spurred to action by the downing of the Malaysian airliner, the European Union approved dramatically tougher economic sanctions Tuesday against Russia, including an arms embargo and restrictions on state-owned banks. President Barack Obama swiftly followed with an expansion of U.S. penalties targeting key sectors of the Russian economy. The coordinated sanctions were aimed at increasing pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin to end his country’s support for separatists in eastern Ukraine whom the West blames for taking down the passenger jet nearly two weeks

ago. Obama and U.S. allies also warned that Russia was building up troops and weaponry along its border with Ukraine. “Today Russia is once again isolating itself from the international

community, setting back decades of genuine progress,” Obama said. “It does not have to be this way. This is a choice that Russia and President Putin, in particular, has made.” Tuesday’s announcements followed an intense lobbying effort from Obama aimed at getting European leaders to toughen their penalties on Russia. U.S. officials say sanctions already are having a detrimental impact on Russia’s economy. Yet it remains uncertain whether the tougher penalties will have any impact on Russia’s actions in Ukraine — nor was it clear what other actions the U.S. and Europe were willing to take if the situations remains unchanged.

Xi, who is party leader as well as president, has vowed to go after lowand high-level officials in his campaign to purge the party of corruption and other wrongdoing that have undermined its legitimacy in the public eye. The crackdown has felled at least 30 provincial and ministerial officials and more than 50 executives of state companies since Xi took charge — the biggest purge of its kind in decades.

Who Is Zhou Yongkang? Zhou became the national security chief in 2007 and retired in 2012. He was once perceived as untouchable, as he oversaw the country’s domestic spy agencies, a position that afforded him access to information on other highranking politicians who might pose a threat to him.

The Charge The party’s anti-graft watchdog said on its website Tuesday that it is investigating Zhou, 71, for serious violations of party discipline. Although it gave no details, such an announcement typically paves the way for the official to be ousted from the party and face prosecution.

Hey, Update My Transit App! Some smartphone users await data from the Silver Line Washington Silver Line riders: Your smartphone screen is not playing tricks on you. If you’re a Silver Line passenger who usually turns to a smartphone app to get around the Metro system, you may discover it’s missing information on the new line. It’s almost like the Silver Line doesn’t exist. But it does. And so does the information. Philip Stewart, a Metro spokesman, said the transit system —

which provides arrival and departure times to app developers — made Silver Line station information available on July 19 to developers. Metro officials began welcoming riders to the line on Saturday. But during Monday’s morning commute, the 9,700 riders that Metro said entered or exited the line’s five new stations had little to go on by way of apps. Some did it the oldfashioned way: turning to signs in the stations or to Metro’s website. It takes days for Apple to approve updates to any app, so even though Silver Line information was available, developers are left waiting before the changes can go live. According to Apple’s website,

How About DC Rider? Like many others, Express’ DC Rider iPhone app is still awaiting approval from Apple. The Android version has already been updated with Silver Line information. (E XPRESS)

98 percent of app submissions are reviewed in five business days. So Silver Line riders could see arrival and departure times on their favorite apps by the end of this week. Ia n Di xon, who created DC Metro and Bus in 2012, said the transit system did not announce that the new data was even available.

“Some developers just realized they made it available,” he said. “It was a little bit of a scramble.” Dixon submitted his update four days ago, and said the approval process could stretch anywhere from four to seven days. Chetan Shenoy, co-founder of a company that launched CapitolHop, said it could take longer to go through the approval process than it actually did to implement the changes. Both he and Dixon said there have been user complaints about the delay. But Shenoy said: “Please be patient. We’ll have it as soon as we ca n.” V I C T O R I A S T.

D.C.’s Handgun Ruling Is on Hold Washington A federal judge on Tuesday put on hold his decision invalidating the District’s long-standing ban on carrying handguns in public places. The judge’s stay, in effect for 90 days, gives city officials and D.C. police officers some breathing room to respond to a ruling that overturned the District’s primary gun-control law. Doxie McCoy, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, said the stay “gives us time to pause, and to act.” She said the mayor will continue to work with the D.C.

Backstory A ruling last week by a U.S. District judge meant that thousands of city residents with registered handguns, in addition to legal gun owners from other states, could carry pistols in Washington. The D.C. law is unconstitutional, the judge ruled, because there is no process for issuing carry licenses to registered gun owners. (T WP)

Council “in terms of what legislation we need to put in. This is certainly welcome news.”

In his order on Tuesday, the judge gave the City Council until Oct. 22 to decide whether to enact new legislation “consistent with the court’s ruling.” D.C. Council Member Tommy Wells, chairman of the public safety committee, welcomed news of the stay. But he said it appears the District’s restrictions on carrying guns in public will cease to exist. “I doubt that we will be able to sustain a complete ban,” Wells said. “But we’re going to have to figure out what restrictions are permissible.” ANN E.

Maryland’s tax break runs from Aug. 10 and continues through Aug. 16 for shoes and clothing items costing $100 or less. The District of Columbia no longer offers a sales tax holiday.

Cover Story

Ebola Crisis Spreading Washington By the time Billy Fischer left the Ebola treatment center in Gueckedou, Guinea, early last month, he could complete the meticulous preparation routine in his sleep. First he donned the scrubs. Then he pulled on a pair of thick rubber boots that came up to his knees. Then he put on a body suit made of an impermeable material, two pairs of gloves, a face mask, an impermeable hood that covered his neck and — finally — goggles. In the tropical Guinea heat and humidity, it was suffocating. But it also kept him alive. “You lose about three to five liters of sweat, then you spend the next two hours hydrating before you go back in,” said Fischer, a critical care physician at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “It limits the care you can provide, but it saves your life.” Despite such extreme precautions, however, health workers in West Africa have been vulnerable to contracting Ebola. Dr. Sheik Humarr Khan, who was praised for treating the disease in Sierra Leone, died Tuesday. He had been hospitalized in quarantine. In neighboring Liberia, a top Ebola doctor died of the disease Saturday, and Kent Brantly — a Texas-trained doctor who has spent months treating Ebola patients — is fighting for his own survival after contracting the virus. “I’m praying fervently that God will help me survive this disease,” Brantly wrote in an email Monday to Dr. David Mcray, the director of maternal-child health at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where Brantly completed a

Why You May Want to Be Concerned About West Africa’s Outbreak The worst Ebola outbreak in history has put a number of countries in West Africa in lockdown, led to the deaths of nearly 700 people since February and brought new reports of doctors, including Americans, contracting the virus they are attempting to contain. The situation is undeniably scary. Here’s what you need to know. (T WP/AP)

What is Ebola?

How is it going?

It is a highly infectious illness with fatality rates up to 90 percent, according to the World Health Organization. Symptoms initially include a sudden fever as well as joint and muscle aches and then typically progress to vomiting, diarrhea and, in some cases, internal and external bleeding. Reports of human infections usually first emerge in remote areas near tropical rain forests, where humans can come into contact with such animals as chimpanzees, gorillas and forest antelope. The consumption of bush meat is often a precursor to such outbreaks. The WHO says fruit bats are probably the natural host for the virus, meaning they harbor the pathogen but show no ill effects and serve as a source of infection.

One of the continuing challenges is getting local populations to abide by the edicts of government authorities and foreign health workers. The WHO has repeatedly warned about the risk posed by mourners reclaiming the bodies of the deceased for traditional burial ceremonies. But in some cases, families have refused to hand over the bodies to officials. The hysteria caused by the spread of Ebola has also led to the spread of rumor and conspiracy theories. Angry crowds have accused foreigners of bringing the virus.

How does it spread? Through contact with the bodily fluids — such as saliva, sweat, blood and urine — of someone who is infected. There have also been incidents in which the disease has spread at funerals for victims. Public health officials deem an outbreak to be over only after 42 days have elapsed without any new cases, which is leading some to predict that the current crisis may last well into the autumn.

SEYLLOU (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)

With doctors who treated the virus now falling ill, panic is setting in

Gloves and boots used by medical staff dry at a center for victims of Ebola in Gueckedou, Guinea.

Can Ebola be cured? There is no known vaccine or cure for the disease, but if caught early, it can be battled like other viruses such as influenza. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says supportive therapy such as administering liquids and electrolytes and maintaining the patients’ oxygen status and blood pressure can combat the virus. Doctors Without Borders said a strict quarantine while treating patients is essential to controlling outbreaks.

four-year residency. He also asked that prayers be extended for Nancy Writebol, an American co-worker who also has fallen ill with Ebola. Brantly’s prognosis is grave, Mcray said, and efforts to evacuate him for treatment have been thwarted because of concerns from the countries he would have to fly over.

How bad is the current outbreak? Bad — very, very bad. It’s concentrated in three small West African states: Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where reports of Ebola infections first emerged in February. The outbreak has claimed more than 670 lives.

Liberia’s health ministry is investigating how Brantly contracted the virus. “We’re trying to figure out what went wrong because he was always very careful,” said Tolbert Nyenswah, an assistant health minister in Monrovia. Still, colleagues and family members said Brantly, 33, knew of

So what can be done? Those who have contracted the virus and the medical personnel treating them need to be kept under strict quarantine. On Monday, Liberia sealed off most of its border crossings, and Nigeria has placed all entry points into the country on “red alert.” One airline said Tuesday it was temporarily halting flights to Monrovia, Liberia, and Freetown, Sierra Leone. The threat of the virus spreading beyond the region remains real. A patient may manifest symptoms of the virus between two days and three weeks after getting infected.

the risks associated with working in one of the world’s poorest countries during an epidemic and did not regret his choice. “Kent prepared himself to be a lifetime medical missionary,” said his mother, Jan Brantly. “His heart is in Africa.” ABBY PHILLIP (THE WASHINGTON POST) AND EMILY SCHMALL (AP)

Is there a threat to the United States? The wife and children of Kent Brantly, the infected U.S. physician, departed Liberia just days before Brantly fell ill. They are now in Abilene, Texas, and, while not subject to quarantine, are being monitored. Their return has sparked questions about whether they might introduce the virus to the U.S. The CDC has said that no cases of Ebola have been confirmed in the U.S. and the risk of it spreading to here was low, but it nevertheless issued a Level 2 health alert, advising U.S. health workers to be vigilant.

The New Man in the Middle? DAMIAN DOVARGANES (AP)

Redskins may turn to Robinson to fill Fletcher’s big shoes Redskins

The Lakers introduced Byron Scott on Tuesday as their next coach.

Scott Sees Quick Fix For Lakers JOHN McDONNELL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

For Keenan Robinson, simply being on the field during training camp is enough of a victory. The linebacker was drafted from Texas in the fourth round in 2012, but injuries have stunted his growth. In Week 12 of the 2012 season, Robinson tore his right pectoral muscle, knocking him out for the year. And last year, on the first day of training camp, Robinson tore his left pectoral muscle, ending his season before it began. Now fully healthy, the 6-foot3, 238-pound Robinson is ready to live up to his promise. “I’m trying to jump-start my career,” he said. “This year, hopefully I can learn something, do the best I can do and just play a role.” On paper, the Redskins are counting on Robinson to be more than a role player. Most observers have Robinson slotted as the team’s starting middle linebacker, stepping into the very large shoes of London Fletcher, who ended his stellar career after the 2013 season. That’s a huge challenge for a player with just 11 career tackles under his belt, but Robinson’s speed, skill and smarts make him a solid candidate to start. “If you look at what we were doing last year, we had no strengths,” safety Ryan Clark said. “That’s why you have a faster Keenan Robinson now that gets the opportunity to

replace London Fletcher.” Robinson was glad to apprentice under Fletcher, using the veteran as a model for how to prepare his mind and body for the NFL, even as he recovered from his injuries. “From him, I learned how to be a professional,” Robinson said of Fletcher. “I learned how he approached the game, practice and meetings. Basically, how to prepare for the game in ways that other guys don’t — getting a head start on your opponent when game time comes.”

Career tackles for Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson, who was drafted by Washington in 2012 but missed the entire 2013 season with a torn left pectoral muscle.

Robinson, who has been paired at inside linebacker with Perry Riley during practice, is responsible for calling the defensive signals, a role he has experience with. “I don’t mind that. I did that in college,” he said. “That’s part of

being the inside backer.” Robinson may be an unproven commodity, but he’s eager to show what he can do as Washington aims to revamp its defense and become a more aggressive unit. “I feel more excitement than pressure,” he said. “I’m excited because I haven’t played football in a year and a half. So to be out here, I just love it. I love practicing every day, I love the meetings. It allows me to do something I love to do, and with being sidelined, I’m now thankful for every second of it.” ELLIOT T SMITH (FOR E XPRESS)

Top Seed Goes Down in First Round at Citi Open: Top-seeded Lucie Safarova, left, of the Czech Republic lost to France’s Kristina Mladenovic in the first round of the Citi Open on Tuesday. Mladenovic rallied for a 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory against the Wimbledon semifinalist. She will face American qualifier Taylor Townsend in the second round. No. 2 seed Ekaterina Makarova of Russia cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 victory against two-time defending champion Magadalena Rybarikova of Slovakia. Rybarikova had won her last 10 matches in the tournament. No. 5 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova moved into the second round with a 6-2, 6-2 win over France’s Virginie Razzano. Pavlyuchenkova next faces Japanese qualifier Hiroko Kuwata. On the men’s side, Americans Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson each advanced with straightset victories. Querrey beat countryman Michael Russell 6-4, 6-3, and Johnson eliminated Australia’s James Duckworth with a 6-3, 7-6 (4) win. (AP)

NBA Byron Scott is taking over the Los Angeles Lakers with the vocal support of his fellow Showtime greats. Magic Johnson, Kareem AbdulJabbar and Jamaal Wilkes attended Tuesday’s introductory news conference for Scott, the 25th coach in franchise history. Scott boldly predicted a quick return to NBA title contention for the Lakers, who are coming off their worst season since moving to Los Angeles. The Lakers spent nearly three months without a coach before finally hiring Scott, a shooting guard on three Showtime championship teams in the 1980s. Scott has been a head coach with New Jersey, New Orleans and Cleveland. But the Lakers have always been the ideal job for the Inglewood, Calif., product who grew up sneaking into the Forum to watch Jerry West. GREG BEACHAM (AP)

NCAA Settles Head-Injury Suit $70M fund created to diagnose current and former athletes NCAA

In an emergency, will you know—what to do, where to go, how to get information? Life in the National Capital Region is fast-paced and you have a lot on your mind. On a daily basis you are swamped with emails and texts and the last thing you need is more messages... But there are some messages YOU NEED to stay safe. Introducing a newly enhanced—and fully customizable—emergency alert system. Wherever you live and work in the Region—You can Be Warned, Be Ready and Be Safe.

The NCAA agreed Tuesday to settle a class-action head-injury lawsuit by creating a $70 million fund to diagnose thousands of current and former college athletes to determine if they suffered brain trauma playing football, hockey, soccer and other contact sports. College sports’ governing body also agreed to implement a single return-to-play policy spelling out how all teams must treat players who received head blows, according to a filing in U.S. District Court in Chicago. Unlike a proposed settlement in a similar lawsuit against the NFL, this deal stops short of setting aside money to pay players who suffered brain trauma. Instead, athletes can sue individually for damages and

the NCAA-funded tests to gauge the extent of neurological injuries could establish grounds for doing that. The settlement applies to all men and women who participated in basketball, football, ice hockey, soccer, wrestling, field hockey and lacrosse. Those who’ve played at any time over the past half-century or more at one of the more than 1,000 NCAA member schools qualify for the medical exams. Tuesday’s filing serves as notice to the federal judge overseeing the case the parties struck a deal after nearly a year of negotiations, which Joseph Siprut, the lead plaintiffs’ attorney who spearheaded talks with the NCAA, said were sometimes tough. “I wouldn’t say these changes solve the safety problems, but they do reduce the risks,” he said. “It’s changed college sports forever.” The NCAA, which admits no wrongdoing in the settlement and has denied understating the dangers of concussions, hailed the settlement.

Rose Returns for U.S. Camp

Maryland coach Randy Edsall talks during Big Ten media days in Chicago.

Edsall: ‘You Win Games Up Front’ Maryland coach puts emphasis on lines for first year in Big Ten College Football Questions related to the Maryland football program’s transition to the Big Ten continued to bombard coach Randy Edsall on Tuesday morning, the second of conference media days, and he took them all in stride at the Hilton Chicago. Just being in this room, Edsall could feel that his team was experiencing a new culture, he said. But whether Maryland is entering a new culture on the field is an entirely different question. Some of the conference’s coaches and players believe the league is still founded on “three yards and a cloud of dust,” while others insist that archetype has long been a misconception, one largely based on school location and Midwestern values. “Maybe in one conference there’s more people that will spread you out as opposed to more teams that will maybe line up in two tight ends

and one back and do those sorts of things,” Edsall said. “But there’s only so many things you can do.” The evolution of the spread offense has seeped into most college football teams over the past two decades, but Edsall noted Tuesday that whether Maryland is playing in the ACC or the Big Ten, physical fronts still help teams win consistently. Edsall said Tuesday that he thinks that physical play is “for the most part” at the core of the Big Ten. “You win games up front with the offensive and defensive lines. So you have to make sure you’re sound and solid there.” ROMAN STUBBS ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Derrick Rose says he feels old. The 25-year-old point guard’s rigorous play on Monday during the U.S. basketball team’s first practice dictated otherwise. “I was joking with Kyle Korver, I told him ‘I’m getting old, man. I’ve got to stretch, I’ve got to use rollers and stuff.’ He looked at me kind of weird,” Rose said laughingly. “But I feel a lot more mature. I’ve been preparing for this for a long time. I’ve dedicated my whole summer to this. I think I’ve sacrificed a lot for this moment.” Rose, the Chicago Bulls star who is coming off two knee injuries that kept him out for much of the past two seasons, said he played roughly nine minutes of the team’s scrimmage during a two-hour practice. He added he was excited about how he felt physically. Coach Mike Krzyzewski was

elated with Rose’s play, saying he was most impressed with his defensive pressure and tenaciousness. “I think Derrick was a great excitement for us, because you hear about how he’s worked out, but to see him today, I mean, he put it all out,” Krzyzewski said. Rose played just 10 games last

season before his year was ended by a torn meniscus in his right knee. “I work out a couple hours a day [and] I know how much work I’ve put into this; I’m just excited to be here,” Rose said. “Going out there competing and having fun, to tell you the truth, just having fun, I think that’s the key.” W.G.

Inside Jokes

Comedy Central’s “The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail” isn’t just a TV show. It’s a backstage pass to one of Los Angeles’ most popular comedy shows. Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) created “The Meltdown” (12:30 a.m. Wednesdays) by doing just what they’ve been doing each week for four years: hosting a loose, experimental stand-up showcase in the back of a comic book shop. For the most part, TV’s “Meltdown” is a By Rudi shortened version of Greenberg the live show: Ray and Nanjiani tell jokes and talk to the audience, followed by short stand-up sets. What makes the TV show different is that cameras follow the action backstage as the comics hang out, talk shop and plan their sets. In the premiere, Moshe Kasher does a bit where a plant in the audience heckles him into miming like a clown. It’s a bizarre piece of performance art, but, in the context of “The Meltdown,” it works. When he’s done, a camera follows Kasher off-stage, where he’s greeted by the show’s producer, Nanjiani’s wife Emily Gordon. “That was everything I hoped it would be and more,” Gordon says. She might as well have been talking about the show itself. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.

As Seen on Stage

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers return to their bluesy rock roots on “Hypnotic Eye.”

Back With a Vengeance Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ new release proves classic can still be refreshing Album Review Tom Petty isn’t singing about himself on his new tune, “Forgotten Man,” but he can’t be blamed for thinking like that. The music world has moved on from the days when Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers were among its leaders. So what to do? They can give up, go country, become a walk-

ing jukebox or stand and fight. They’ve decided to take a stand, based on the evidence of this stunning new disc. “Hypnotic Eye” is testament to the enduring power of blues-based rock ’n’ roll. The Heartbreakers are among the best rock bands still working, and this disc is the type of showcase it hasn’t had for decades. Mike Campbell’s fluid guitar, Benmont Tench’s unparalleled keyboards, Ron Blair’s surprisingly melodic bass and Steve Ferrone’s drums — it’s a veteran band that plays with confidence and precision. Petty brings the songs,

h o o k- l a d e n and filler-free, spea k ing to t he st r ivers a nd d re a mers who have always made up his audience. The sound is classic but never dated. Were this the summer of 1984, “Fault Lines,” “Red River,” “Forgotten Man” and “Sins of My Youth” would be constants on the radio. It’s no fault of his that time and trends are different now. You’d be wise, however, not to forget Tom Petty. DAVID BAUDER (AP)

Music Trends

Rock Revival Tom Petty says he hasn’t lost hope that young people will restore rock music to its former glory. “I’m encountering a lot of young people who want to play instruments and play rock, and they have a vast library at their fingertips,” Petty told USA Today. But he remains dumbfounded by the popularity of EDM. “Watch people play records?” he says. “That’s stupid.” (E XPRESS)

Farewell to FreeFest: A spokeswoman for Virgin Mobile USA announced Tuesday that FreeFest, which has taken place at the Merriweather Post Pavilion since 2009, will not return in 2014. In a statement, the company wrote that it would instead make a direct donation to the Sasha Bruce RE*Generation House, the Southeast Washington home for homeless young adults. Virgin did not say whether the festival will return next year. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Nice Workout if You Can Get It

For Marvel, it’s a lesser-known comic-book property with a more comic, off-kilter story. (Bradley Cooper voices a digitally rendered raccoon.)

“Don’t underestimate the power of a passionate pack of teenage girls.” — DODAI STEWART AT JEZEBEL.COM

thinks no one should be surprised that 15-year-old Toronto-native Shawn Mendes’ legion of dedicated fans propelled his debut self-titled EP to the No. 1 spot on iTunes just 37 minutes after its release. Mendes garnered this following by posting six-second snippets of himself singing on Vine, where he has almost 3 million followers.

“There is a surprisingly large number of people out there who take a lot of selfies. I don’t see why someone shouldn’t at least give them a phone that takes good ones.” — COMMENTER NICHOLAS STANGO AT GIZMODO.COM doesn’t get the Internet’s

collective groan on Tuesday over anticipation of a new Microsoft phone that would sport a highquality, 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Verge, which reported the rumors, wrote that Stephen Elop, Microsoft’s vice president of devices, actually referred to the device as a “selfie phone,” a designation that got skeptics’ eyes rolling.

“ … Enjoy watching a sultry, stubbly Rob Lowe straddling two Great Whites like Van Damme atop a pair of Volvo trucks as we wait to see whether ‘so sharky’ makes its way permanently into the lexicon.” — ANNA SILMAN AT VULTURE .COM describes a new promo

posted Tuesday for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week 2014, which kicks off Aug. 10.

“If you are buying bourbon that doesn’t mention Kentucky on the label, you are a moron. Period.” — COMMENTER TAKESHIKOVACS AT THEDAILYBEAST.COM points out the

truly concerning takeaway from a Daily Beast article that pointed out that many new craft, smallbatch rye whiskey distillers are actually just purchasing their product from food-ingredient corporation MGP, which is based in Lawrenceburg, Ind.

“I think that I, like many people, aren’t offended but just amazed at the oversight.” — COMMENTER LYKEUHFOX AT KOTAKU .COM tries to interpret the uproar

generated by the poster for the Sept. 11 Australian release of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The image was tweeted Tuesday by Paramount Pictures Australia but was quickly taken down after critics pointed out that it featured the turtles diving from a burning building. The film will be released in the U.S. on Aug. 8.
