For 31/2 years, Nyerere Mitchell rode around D.C.’s nightlife hotspots hunting for drunk people. The 50-year-old pleaded guilty Monday to convincing more than 60 of them to hop into his “taxi” (a silver Range Rover SUV), taking them to an ATM and withdrawing the “fare” for them. He raked in more than $200,000. The story gets even more ridiculous. Can you guess the fake fact? R.S.

He would keep his victim’s card, returning a similar-looking one stolen from someone else. He told some of the victims not to worry about the ATM fee — he’d take it off their fare.

Hospital’s future is mired in politics

expressline

United Medical Center by choice. But the story is not yet a fairy tale. The hospital remains housed in a building that is increasingly expensive to maintain. The ultimate goal of partnering with a larger private owner has yet to be reached. The process has been complicated by the pending election, since the next mayor’s approach to questions about the hospital’s future is largely unknown. A proposal from Mayor Vincent Gray to build a new hospital nearby has been met with skepticism from the D.C. Council. Mayoral candidate David Catania, an At-large Council member who moved to stabilize the hospital when it was foundering under private ownership, opposes the proposal to build a new hospital. A spokesman for Democratic nominee and Council member Muriel Bowser said the hospital bailouts arranged by Catania amounted to “a Band-Aid, not a fix” and said Bowser has not ruled out a new hospital. C a rol Schwa r tz , who is running as an independent, said that she is open to proposals involving a new site.

ESTHER HORVATH

THE DISTRICT Shortly after David Small took over as chief executive of D.C.’s United Medical Center last year, a woman gave him some unwelcome news about the facility. “It was,” Small recalls being told, “the hospital where you go to die.” The 354-bed hospital on Southern Avenue SE has long suffered from a dismal reputation as a hospital of last resort, an image buttressed by long-standing financial woes and its location, in one of the region’s most concentrated pockets of poverty. But nearly 18 months into a crash turnaround effort, there are encouraging signs. Patient volumes and billings are up, doctors are joining rather than fleeing the staff, and, for the first time in at least a decade, there is more than sufficient money in the bank. Last month, the hospital announced that it will not require a government operating subsidy for the first time since the District seized control of it in 2010. Small, who was hired by the city’s turnaround contractor, said perceptions are starting to change: Patients are coming to

The McDonnell trial, day 6

Dr. B Medica eale’s l Loss Pr Weight ogram

Former Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are battling a 14-count indictment that alleges they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to businessman Jonnie Williams Sr. in exchange for gifts and money. Jurors resumed hearing testimony Monday. ( THE WASHINGTON POST ) Aide: First lady tried to pitch Mitt Romney

But governor ‘least materialistic person’

McDonnells never said no to gifts

Maureen’s ‘crush’ is news to Williams

Bob McDonnell’s political adviser, Phil Cox, testified that Maureen and Williams attempted to pitch a dietary supplement to Mitt Romney. Cox said that a meeting never happened, but Maureen did pitch Ann Romney, telling her the dietary supplement could potentially cure her multiple sclerosis. “I was horrified,” Cox said.

After blasting Maureen from the stand, Cox gave much more flattering testimony about the former governor. “He’s the least materialistic person I know.” Cox said Bob McDonnell was only engaged in “constituent service” and “donor maintenance” when he sent Williams emails about Star Scientific and its stock price.

Prosecutor Michael Dry asked Williams if Maureen ever said the Rolex watch he’d bought at her direction was too expensive.“Did she ever say, ‘That’s too much’?” Dry asked. “No,” Williams said.“Did Mr. McDonnell ever call and say, ‘Hey, you shouldn’t be buying things for my family’?” Dry asked. “No,” Williams said. “A lot of the requests I declined.”

Williams testified that the “crush defense” that emerged last week was news to him. Asked flatly by Dry if he ever had “any physical or intimate relationship with Mrs. McDonnell,” Williams said: “I didn’t know Mrs. McDonnell had any interest in me till last week,” when her defense unveiled the alleged romantic connection.

Word nerds of the world, rejoice!

An Israeli soldier stands next to a bus that was tipped Monday by an Arab construction worker with a backhoe.

Violence hits Jerusalem as leaders seek a truce JERUSALEM A pair of attacks along the line separating east and west Jerusalem set this bitterly contested city on edge Monday amid fears that the war in the Gaza Strip will spawn violence far beyond the territory’s boundaries. In one of the Jerusalem attacks, an Arab construction worker used his backhoe to run down an Israel civilian and then topple a nearly empty bus. The civilian was killed and three others were injured, including the bus driver, according to a police spokesman. Police fatally shot the construction worker, who was identified as an East Jerusalem

resident in his 20s. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called for more such attacks, describing it as a “brave resistance action.” The assaults prompted Israeli police armed with automatic weapons to set up makeshift checkpoints. In Gaza, the battle slowed but did not stop on Monday, despite Israel’s unilateral declaration of a seven-hour pause in the fight. Just minutes after the ceasefire was due to kick in Monday, Israel fired two missiles at a house in the Shati refugee camp in northern Gaza, killing at least three people, including

an 8-year-old girl, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. The attack prompted Hamas to accuse Israel of deceit — a familiar refrain in a conflict that has proven a graveyard for truces. Later Monday, Israel and Hamas accepted an Egyptian cease-fire proposal, raising hopes that the bloodiest round of fighting between the bitter enemies could finally be coming to an end. Still, both sides signaled a rough road ahead, with an Israeli official expressing skepticism given previous failures, and a Palestinian negotiator saying “it’s going to be tough.”

Ukraine tells residents in separatist city to leave

Pattaramon Chanbua says she’s raising a boy she birthed as a surrogate.

Mom’s tale raises surrogacy issues HEALTH It’s a tale with few specifics that has nonetheless produced an international melodrama. What it does have: an impoverished 21-year-old Thai food vendor, a beautiful baby boy with Down syndrome and the shadowy surrogacy trade. The Thai surrogate mother, Pattaramon Chanbua, recently said an unnamed Australian couple left her to care for their boy, who has Down syndrome — but took his healthy twin sister after Pattaramon refused to have an abortion. Now the Australian government says it is considering intervening in the case, with the

country’s immigration minister saying Monday that the little boy might be entitled to Australian citizenship. The story spawned a fund for the child that collected $216,000 and stirred calls for change. Pattaramon says she was promised about $10,000 for agreeing to be a surrogate. But she said the surrogate agency stiffed her some of the money once doctors found out one of her twin babies had Down syndrome. The surrogate parents denied Pattaramon’s story, telling the Australian Broadcasting Corp. the clinic only told them about the girl. (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)

The Islamic State has continued its territorial grabs in Iraq and Syria. The militant group is said to control more than onethird of Syrian territory.

‘Worse than al-Qaeda’ With oil wealth and vast territory, extremist Islamic State is an unprecedented threat IRAQ It’s a pattern of territorial expansion that has now become familiar. After the Islamic State captured Sinjar, Iraq, on Sunday, came the executions. Then arrived the orders to convert or die, the flash of the movement’s black flag, the fleeing of thousands — and, finally, the jubilant and chilling images on social media. One showed a destroyed Shiite shrine, which had long sat in the ancient city of Sinjar in northwestern Iraq. Another depicted the executions of several blindfolded men. There was an image of two masked men who had climbed a tall building, enshrouded its edifice in a black Islamic State flag, and blasted a pistol into the air. Then there was a picture showing a masked jihadist hoisting a gun at the desk of the town’s mayor. The armed movement, which has surged in wealth, manpower and resources in recent weeks, also took the town of Wana on Sunday. The Islamic State routed

the Kurdish army and forced an exodus of residents that the United Nations said numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Calling the situation a “humanitarian tragedy,” a top U.N. envoy to Iraq said in a statement that their expulsion was “dire.” Equally worrisome is what the Islamic State, led by the mysterious Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, will do with the Mosul Dam, which it may soon seize — if it hasn’t already. There were conflicting reports Sunday as to who controlled Iraq’s largest dam. The militants have a record of using water as a means of terrorism. It could open the flood gates and deluge major Iraqi cities or withhold water from farms. It’s just the latest step in the Islamic State’s regional expansion. What was recently a ragtag cadre of former al-Qaeda operatives has now morphed into a transnational, fully militarized operation said to control more than one-third of Syria’s territory. It’s “worse than al-Qaeda,”

Bangladesh ferry carrying hundreds capsizes; many missing

Behind its growth Islamic State has a keen eye for resources and cash, which some suspect is the fulcrum of its growth. In addition to stealing and selling ancient relics worth tens of millions and looting hundreds of millions from banks, it also recently captured a Syrian gas field along with other oil fields, Reuters reported. Experts estimate the group is pocketing as much as $3 million a day in oil revenue by selling off resources on black markets. (TWP)

State’s expansion in Iraq and Syria

Brett McGurk, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran, told lawmakers last month. It “is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a fullblown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.” Some accounts say it’s already done it. In the Syrian town of Raqqah, called the Islamic State’s capital, the movement governs with an austere, barbaric but orderly hand. According to a New York Times report, crime is rare, traffic cops keep the streets moving, and tax collectors are organized. Those accused of theft have lost hands. It’s a glimpse of what may be coming to the rest of the captured territory, a swath of terrain spilling across borders. TERRENCE McCOY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

One place in America that comes closest to taking a collective break is, ironically enough, Washington.

Europeans, with their 20 to 30 days of paid vacation a year, know how to relax. Above, folks sit on Brighton beach in Sussex, southern England, last month.

Let’s ditch this place HEALTH We Americans work hard. Weekends are more like workends. We sleep with our smartphones. And we think vacations are for wimps. So we don’t take them. Or we take work along with us if we do. But what if taking vacation not only made you healthier and happier, as a number of studies have shown, but everyone around you? And what if everybody took vacation at the same time? Would life be better, not just for you, but for the entire society? Yes indeed, says Terry Hartig, an environmental psychologist at Uppsala University in Sweden. When people go on a relaxing vacation, they tend to return happier and more relaxed. (The operative word here being relaxing, not frenzied.) And those mellow, good vibes, Hartig said, spread “like a contagion” to everyone you come in contact with. Send everyone

away on vacation at the same time, and that contagion takes off through the population like a viral happiness pandemic. Hartig calls it “collective restoration.” To test his theory, Hartig studied monthly anti-depressant prescriptions in Sweden between 1993 and 2005. He found that the more people took vacations at the same time, the more prescriptions dropped exponentially. Summer, by far, was the happiest time — or at least saw the steepest declines in

The estimated number of unused vacation days left on the table every year by U.S. workers. And even when they take vacations, many say they take work along with them.

anti-depressant prescriptions. It’s no surprise why: Since 1977, Swedish law has mandated that every worker have five weeks of paid vacation every year. And workers can take four consecutive weeks off in the summer. “It’s like there’s this national agreement that it’s vacation time, and work will be left aside,” Hartig said. So instead of working and being distracted, people get outside. They do things they enjoy. The benefits, Hartig said, are huge. Not only is the society happier, but workers are more rested and productive, relationships are closer and people are healthier. One study found that men who don’t take vacations are 30 percent more likely to have heart attacks than those who do. For women, it’s 50 percent. Women who fail to take vacation are more likely to suffer from depression. Europeans, with their 20 and 30 days of paid vacation every year, live longer and spend less on health care than Americans, Hartig said. But that kind of widespread, vacation-induced health and euphoria is unlikely

to hit the U.S. anytime soon. “Collective restoration,” Hartig said, is only possible if the entire population can coordinate time off. And the only way to do that, he argues, is through national policy. The U.S. is the only advanced economy with no national vacation policy. (Unless you count Suriname, Nepal and Guyana.) That’s unlikely to change, but some are trying. The travel and tourism industry has launched the Vacation Equality Project and is pushing Congress for a guaranteed minimum amount of paid vacation. John de Graaf, who has been working on the campaign, said it’s a tough sell in the U.S., where vacation is seen as an “extraneous luxury” of little benefit to anyone. “People don’t experience very much vacation in the United States, so they’re inclined not to understand its value,” he said.

THREE POINTERS

Nationals MVP so far

RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU

Follow the leader: An inside look at an elite franchise on opposite fields until team drills began. Griffin then stood behind the Patriots and watched Brady work — talking with offensive coordinator Sean McVay as if they saw something they might try. Griffin didn’t lose the home fans to Brady, though, throwing long balls to DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed. The option run that worked well twice last week against his teammates was stoned by the Patriots, though. Mostly, the two teams kept to themselves. It was the same drills in the same fashion — only occasionally going against a different opponent. Perhaps the lone intense moment came when the Redskins’ offensive linemen faced off against the Patriots’ defensive linemen. The drill surely left Washington guard Spencer Long with a sore throat when a New England defender grabbed him high. This is Redskins defensive lineman Kedric Golston’s

JOHN McDONNELL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

All eyes were on Tom Brady — even though the New England Patriots quarterback didn’t do anything unusual. A capacity crowd at Redskins training camp in Richmond welcomed the three-time Super Bowl champion passer with a roar when he started 11-on-11 drills Monday. There were plenty of Patriots fans lining the fields, but Redskins fans sensed something special, too. At the first of three joint practices before the teams will meet in Thursday’s preseason opener, the crowd hushed every time Brady threw a pass. And he delivered. Brady completed 5 of 6 in his first series against the Redskins’ starting defense, 2 of 3 with a deep touchdown in the next drive and 5 of 6 in the final series. Overall, Brady completed 12 of 15 with two drops and a score. Without a real pass rush — as quarterbacks aren’t touched in camp — Brady spread the field. “Nothing’s better than Tom and Peyton [Manning],” Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. “Watch Tom’s demeanor in the huddle.” Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III didn’t see Brady often, as they worked

ninth season in Washington, so he was interested in seeing another team’s approach to training camp. “We’re just trying to see their tempo and how they run their systems,” Golston said. “It’s just business as usual.” As for deciphering how well the team did against anyone not named Brady, Washington left tackle Trent Williams echoed several teammates’ uncertainty. The Redskins didn’t game-plan these

practices against the Patriots. “We didn’t scout them or anything so we were going out there blind,” Williams said. “We run basic stuff.” The Redskins saw evidence that an elite NFL team does the same things they do — just better. It’s not a hard lesson to learn.

The No. 5 starter has pitched like an ace — leading the team in wins and sporting a better ERA than the Nats’ highly touted top three.

Former Hokies player was told to stop playing because of neck injury NFL New York Giants running back David Wilson’s NFL career is over after two seasons because of a neck injury. The 23-year-old Wilson was told by doctors Monday that he risked more serious problems if he kept playing. He underwent fusion surgery to repair vertebrae and a herniated disk in his neck in January.

.354

Then at practice last Tuesday, Wilson caught a pass and ran with his head down into the back of an offensive lineman, a hit that caused numbness in his hands and lower extremities. He missed the final 11 games last season after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal cord. “I don’t want anybody to feel sorry for me, or pity me,” he said in a statement released by the team. “I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another

As a rookie, he rushed for 358 yards and scored four touchdowns while making his mark as a kick returner. Wilson led the NFL with 1,533 kickoff return yards, a team record. Wilson had only 146 yards on 44 carries and one touchdown in five games last season before the injury. His condition is not expected to require additional surgery or therapy. (AP)

Coach Randy Edsall won more games in 2013 than he did in his first two years at Maryland combined. The Terps — coming off a 7-6 season — look to build off last year’s progress. Here are three summer camp storylines as Maryland enters its first season in the Big Ten. ROMAN STUBB S ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

3 questions as the Terps open camp

1

Can C.J. Brown finally stay healthy?

Bad health has been a narrative of Maryland the past two seasons, and it starts with C.J. Brown. The sixthyear quarterback enters his final year with a chance to lead one of the Big Ten’s most exciting offenses. But Brown has missed about two years of his career due to injury. When he’s healthy, he’s capable of being a special player — he had more than 2,000 yards passing and 500 rushing last season.

2

Who will provide depth along offensive line?

Coach Randy Edsall said last week that he was pleased with the offensive line’s growth during the spring, but the coaching staff still needs to find depth. The line has a quality veteran in senior Sal Conaboy, who was named to the Rimington Trophy watch list for college football’s best center. Expect several position battles, including at left guard between Silvano Altamirano and junior Evan Mulrooney.

3

How will the secondary fare?

Maryland returns starters at all three levels on defense, but it will have to continue polishing its secondary during camp. It has two reliable safeties in Sean Davis and Anthony Nixon, and veteran A.J. Hendy has played in 30 games and provides quality depth. Finding a solid rotation of cornerbacks seems like the more pressing task. Sophomore William Likely, who made strides as a freshman, is expected to start.

Exercise guru Tammy Stokes demonstrates how to use Even Hotel’s exercise equipment.

No need to pack a gym Rockville’s Even Hotel encourages travelers to exercise and eat well TRAVEL Even Hotel marked its grand opening on Rockville Pike last month with the ceremonial unrolling of a giant yoga mat. It was an appropriate welcome for the 167-room property from the InterContinental Hotels Group. “In our research, we found a lot of people who said, ‘I have a wellness routine at home. It would be great if a hotel helped me stay on the wagon,’ ” says Adam Glickman, head of the Even brand. By rethinking every aspect of the traveler experience with a focus on health, his team developed a model he believes will be the future of the hospitality industry. For now, there are just two Even locations — one opened earlier this summer in Norwalk, Conn. Three more are slated to open in New York in 2015.

Guests walking into any Even Hotel will be greeted with assorted fruit-infused waters. (The current Rockville lineup includes lime cucumber mint and watermelon rosemary.) At check-in, they get a cooling towel, along with the option of purchasing a sweat-proof wristband that can be used in place of a regular key. When it’s time to head to their rooms, guests can skip the elevators and take the staircase. Printed footsteps show the way, so it’s easy to find. Bright windows and inspirational signs (“Stay one step ahead today”) make it a pleasant climb. In the rooms (with rates starting at $89), the lights have dimmers and can change color, Glickman points out. The pillows come in squishy and firm varieties. And the desk and chair are on wheels, so “you feel in control of the space,” he says. A panel next to the TV also flips down to create a standing desk. Instead of a minibar stuffed

Rooms to move Georgia-based fitness expert Tammy Stokes was tapped to develop Even Hotels’ in-room exercise program. The Even Trainer, above, lets users anchor resistance bands at different points, which allows them to do a huge range of movements in a small space, she says. There are 19 channels of looping fitness programs on the TV, and a book of other exercise options, so guests have no excuse not to try something. V.H.

with tempting junk, there’s just an empty fridge. And instead of a pricey bottle of water, there’s a reusable water bottle that guests can take home free of charge. The most obvious difference? An area with cork flooring devoted to exercise. Each room is stocked with a stability ball, a yoga mat, a block and a foam roller, as well as the Even Trainer (see box). There’s also a fancy “athletic

studio” on the ground floor near the lobby. (“So members of our team can go in and give highfives,” Glickman says.) It boasts Woodway treadmills and other top-of-the-line equipment, plus a “flex” room off to the side for cycling and yoga classes. After a workout, guests can refuel at Cork & Kale. The restaurant’s menu options include yogurts, flatbreads and salads — all with labels highlighting whether dishes are vegan, have fewer than 426 calories or fit other criteria. “People get it,” says Scott Blakeslee, Even’s chief wellness officer, who leads morning runs twice a week. And it’s not just the business travelers, he adds. On a recent night, 8-year-old Emma Collins of Denton, Texas, picked up a fresh-squeezed orange juice and deemed everything about the place “awesome.” “This encourages both kids and adults,” her mom Margaret said. Maybe it’ll encourage some other hotels, too. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

Smarter sprinting Want to play “Angry Birds”? There’s an app for that — on this treadmill, above. Technogym’s new Unity console integrates a smartphone-like screen with its cardio equipment, giving users endless entertainment and tracking options. Marriott Marquis Washington has outfitted its 8,000-square-foot gym exclusively with this technology. “Our guests like to work and play,” says Marriott’s Mark Indre. Now they can scan Facebook while keeping tabs on how far they’ve gone. And their workout info travels with them no matter where they go. VICKY HALLETT (EXPRESS)

fit+wellness You’re gonna hear her roar Q. My girlfriend and I have

BEN CLAASSEN III

a good relationship. But she talks and laughs very, very loudly. I like how big her personality is when we are together. But when we are in restaurants and other places, I have to tell her to lower the volume. She resents this and gets sullen every single time it happens. SHE’S LOUD, DC

DR. ANDREA BONIOR | BAGGAGE CHECK

How to squash that fear of bugs Q. My mother has a fear of bugs that is so intense that I swear she has serious mental problems. She is completely out of control — and has been for as long as I can remember. How can I get her to see that it is not normal to yell and scream just because there is a beetle or spider near her? MY MOM HAS A PROBLEM Well, it’s not by telling her you think she has “serious mental problems.” Plenty of people live with abject fears of bugs. What determines whether getting help is advisable is how much distress those fears cause her, and how much disruption there is in her life. If she’s yelling and screaming on a daily basis because of bugs, perhaps that passes the test, but you’ve got to get her

on board. The good news is that specific phobias like this are among the most straightforward of disorders to treat, and a commitment to several weeks of cognitive-behavioral therapy could likely do her a lot of good. Notice, though, nothing in any of this says “serious mental problems,” and neither should you — especially if you want her to actually be willing to work on it.

How we talk, just like how we look, is a fundamental part of who we are. For many people it feels impossible to separate this from how they view themselves as an individual. So, no matter how you bring it up, she might take it as a criticism of her very nature, and she might think it’s impossible to change even if she wanted to.

Wait for a full moon (there’s one on Sunday) and hike to the top of Shenandoah National Park’s Hawksbill Mountain to watch the sun set. That’s what Elliott likes to do — he even brings a picnic blanket and candles “for that added touch,” he says. He eats dinner at the summit, which, at 4,050 feet, is the highest in Shenandoah National Park, then treks back down by moonlight or flashlight. (Depending on where you park, the hike length can range from 2 to 3 miles — all options are fairly steep, though.)

Spoon’s lead singer Britt Daniel provides much of the enthusiasm behind “ They Want My Soul.”

ETHAN MILLER (GETTY IMAGES)

Nickelodeon orders ‘School of Rock’ series

Wearing their experience well Spoon’s eighth studio album is also its most polished and diverse ALBUM REVIEW The Austin, Texas-born band Spoon is out with its eighth album, “They Want My Soul.” It’s a lush jangle of guitars, smart lyrics and catchy refrains that continues to set the band apart from, well, other bands you’re not quite sure you’ve heard of. Therein lives the mystery of Spoon. They’re just good enough to make a 20-year career out of music while producing albums and songs you’ve probably overlooked. That may not last much longer thanks to a couple of standout tracks that are certain to be late-summer earworms once

“They Want My Soul,” out today, migrates into frequent rotation. “Do You” is the one song you must know about. It asks of the listener “Do you want to get understood?/ Do you want one thing or are you looking for sainthood?” It has a great pace and is delivered with matching emotion by lead singer Britt Daniel. “Outlier” has a more modern feel with its danceable backbeat and ghostly keyboard echoes. Spoon can do a little bit of everything, and does so on “They Want My Soul.” Their electrifying presence translates to an energetic stage show, which made them a crowd favorite at this year’s Shaky Knees Festival. To sound this fresh after two decades of work speaks to the band’s smartness and savvy. RON HARRIS (AP)

Nickelodeon said Monday it has ordered 13 episodes of a “School of Rock” series set to premiere next spring. The 2003 movie starred Jack Black as a rocker who poses as a substitute teacher at a prep school. No cast members have been set for the series yet. Richard Linklater, the movie’s director, will be an executive producer. (AP) FILM

Pharrell, Grande to perform at NFL opener Pharrell Williams will perform outside of CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sept. 4 before the Seattle Seahawks play the Greenbay Packers as the NFL begins its 95th season. Ariana Grande will sing the national anthem. It will air on NBC and the NFL Network. Seattle-based band Soundgarden is also scheduled to perform. (AP)

Web chatter recap

ERIC HAL SCHWARTZ AT INTHECAPITAL.STREETWISE.CO has

a tip for Hudson, N.Y.’s, Union Street Guest House, which fines wedding parties $500 for posting negative Yelp reviews. The New York Post reported on Monday that the hotel says it will refund the fine if the review is taken down. But a quick glance at its Yelp page shows that the staff isn’t afraid to post rude responses to discourage negative comments, either.

“If Lorde’s pop career ever fades, this video provides evidence that she might be able to rebrand herself as a singing cowgirl.” ALEX CHANCEY AT THEDAILYBEAST.COM sees

potential in a viral video of a farmer quite literally playing the pop singer’s “Royals” on trombone until the cows come home. In the span of four minutes his cattle slowly assemble over the horizon, drawn in by 2013’s song of the summer.

“If seeing Malia Obama at a music festival forces you to remember the unforgiving passage of time, just imagine how her father feels. (Happy 53rd birthday, Mr. President!)”

“So, in other words, if you’re living in a space station 205 miles above the Earth’s surface, you can watch the SEC Network. If you’re a DirecTV, Charter Communications or Verizon FiOS subscriber, you cannot.”

JOE COSCARELLI AT NYMAG.COM feels

.COM doesn’t sound bitter at all that astronaut

old after a barrage of tweets from teens announced that Malia Obama went to the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago this weekend. The 16-year-old first daughter was spotted on Sunday leaving the festival grounds after Chance the Rapper’s set.

Barry Wilmore will get to enjoy college football season from the International Space Station. The Tennessean reports that Wilmore tasked NASA’s great minds with getting the SEC Network available in the space station, so he can keep up with Tennessee Tech games.
