THE DISTRICT The paint on the wall was barely dry when a teenage girl stepped up to the mural of faces — young, brown faces — and lifted her arms to brush the cheek of a boy who was killed before he turned 15. They were elementary school classmates, she said, so she came to the wall to honor him. Five teenagers whose lives were cut short by gunfire during the 2017-18 school year are memorialized on a new mural outside art gallery The Fridge in Southeast Washington. The mural, which was dedicated last Friday, seeks to inspire a conversation about gun violence and the indiscriminate nature of killing. “These five stories are representative of our entire homicide rate and — unfortunately — are not rare because black, brown, young and old people die every day in our city,” said Lauryn Renford, now 17, who dreamed up the idea for the mural as she was grieving for her boyfriend, Zaire Kelly. “The narrative of being in the wrong place at the wrong time

Race gaps persist in schools EDUCATION Virginia education officials will work with school systems to bolster students’ reading skills after state standardized test scores released Tuesday revealed persistent and, in some cases, deepening gaps in scores between black and Hispanic students and their white and Asian peers. Seventy-eight percent of students who took state reading exams in the 2018-19 school year passed — nearly even with passing rates from the previous academic year. But scores also revealed an achievement gap across racial and other groups on the Standards of Learning tests. Eighty-nine percent of Asian students and 85% of white students in Virginia passed reading exams, compared with 66% of Hispanic and 65% of black students. The gap in reading rates has widened in the past few years among elementary school students, a finding the state plans to address by identifying strategies for improving reading skills. “We must meet students where they are, but we must also move them to where they need to be: reading at grade level or above and ready for success in the 21st century,” Superintendent of Public Instruction James F. Lane said in a statement. Students take Standards of Learning tests from third grade through high school.

Annual Va. test scores stay even with last year but reflect disparities

The percentage of white and Asian students who passed Virginia’s annual state exams exceed the pass rates for black and Hispanic students.

Across the state, 80% of white students in third grade last year passed reading exams, compared with 55% of their Hispanic classmates, a gap that has widened over time. In the 2017-18 year, 81% of white students in third grade passed the exam and 59% of their Hispanic peers passed. Overall passing rates on writing and history tests dipped 2 and 4 percentage points, respectively, from 2017-18, while scores in science remained steady.

with 77% in 2017-2018. Students in Northern Virginia generally performed better than the state’s students elsewhere. In Fairfax County Public Schools, the largest system in Virginia, 81% of students passed reading exams and 86 % passed math exams. Fairfax Superintendent Scott Brabrand said he was pleased the 188,000-student school system outperformed state averages but acknowledged that more must be done to close achievement gaps. “High-performing schools still sometimes have significant gaps,” Brabrand said, adding that the system needs to be “working to raise the bar for every child.” Passing rates across all subjects in Alexandria City Public Schools trailed state averages. Seventy percent of Alexandria students who took math Standards of Learning tests passed, a 9-percentage-point jump from the previous year. Superintendent Gregory Hutchings Jr. credited improvement to investments in teaching math. The Alexandria school system, he said, is working to close achievement gaps across racial groups and among students with disabilities, English-learners and the economically disadvantaged. “It is clear to us that all of our students are not receiving the same access, and all of our students are not receiving the same academic experience,” said Hutchings. Accreditation ratings for the 2019-20 school year are expected in September. DEBBIE TRUONG (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Hogan orders 10,000 acres of solar farms MARYLAND Maryland’s goal to derive half its electricity from renewable sources by the end of next decade raises a question: Where should new solar farms go? Gov. Larry Hogan, R, on Wednesday took a step toward an answer, issuing an executive order the administration hopes will expedite the placement of up to 10,000 acres of solar farms — and steer them away from the fertile farmland Maryland has long been trying to protect. Hogan’s order forms a task force that consists primarily of Cabinet officials but also includes representatives from local government and the renewable energy industry. The group must complete an initial report by December that will recommend new state laws on selecting renewable energy sites. The administration also announced $4 million in grants to encourage solar and wind arrays on roofs, parking lots, contaminated brownfield sites and other existing infrastructure, with an eye toward erecting panels on state- and universityowned property. Maryland’s highest court ruled last month that state energy regulators — not local governments — have final say over the placement of solar and wind farms. Michael Ricci, a spokesman for the governor, said task force plans were underway before the court case was decided. ERIN COX (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Fire damages roof of charter school Capitol Hill blaze could force principal to delay scheduled Aug. 26 start THE DISTRICT Fire broke out at a charter school on Capitol Hill on Tuesday night, damaging the roof and at least one upper-floor classroom and leaving the start of the new school year uncertain, according to the D.C. fire department and the school’s principal. The fire was reported shortly after 10 p.m. at the new Digital Pioneers Academy in the 700 block of 12th Street SE, a block south of Pennsylvania Avenue. Staff is scheduled to begin working at the school starting Monday and students are to begin Aug. 26. The school serves about 240 students in the sixth and seventh grades. The building was formerly home to the Cesar Chavez Charter School. Mashea M. Ashton, the school’s principal and chief executive, said in a statement that staff members are working with D.C. officials “to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the start of classes and other operations.” The statement said the building was being renovated. “We’re grateful to the D.C. firefighters who got the fire under control before more damage was done,” the principal’s statement said, adding, “Right now, we just need

Digital Pioneers Academy opened one year ago in Southeast D.C. Officials relocated the school over the summer to Capitol Hill as the technology-focused school grew. Ashton said the school spent $500,000 on renovations. No one was in the building, and no injuries were reported. A fire department spokesman said Wednesday that investigators had not determined the cause. He said they were exploring the possibility of a lightning strike. He also said there had been recent construction on the roof. PETER HERMANN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

MAXAR TECHNOLOGIES VIA AP

HONG KONG Satellite photos show what appear to be armored personnel carriers and other vehicles belonging to China’s paramilitary People’s Armed Police parked in a sports complex in the city of Shenzhen, in what some have interpreted as a threat from Beijing to use increased force against pro-democracy protesters across the border in Hong Kong. The pictures collected on Monday by Maxar’s WorldView show 500 or more vehicles sitting on and around the soccer stadium at the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center just across the harbor from the Asian financial hub that has been rocked by more than two months of near-daily street demonstrations. Flights at Hong Kong’s airport, one of the world’s busiest, were disrupted on Monday and Tuesday by a mass demonstration and occasional violence inside its terminal. Chinese state media have said only that the Shenzhen exercises had been planned beforehand and were not directly related to the unrest in Hong Kong, although they came shortly after the central government in Beijing said the protests were beginning to show the “sprouts of terrorism.” President Trump tweeted that U.S. intelligence believes the

This satellite image captured Monday appears to show Chinese security force vehicles in a stadium near Hong Kong.

Chinese government is moving troops to its border with Hong Kong and that “Everyone should be calm and safe!” Beijing has been apparently reluctant to send in police or army units from the mainland or to mobilize the People’s Liberation Army garrison in Hong Kong to quell the unrest. It’s seen as mindful of the devastating effect that would have both on the territory’s reputation as a safe and stable place to invest in, and as indication of the Communist Party’s failure to win over the hearts and minds of the city’s 7.3 million residents, 22 years after the former British colony was handed over to China. It would also be a shocking reminder of the PLA’s bloody

memorialized with a massive rally and march each year in Hong Kong. Yet mainland China is believed to have already dispatched officers to fortify the ranks of the Hong Kong police, and may also have planted decoys among the protesters in order to encourage more violent acts that could eventually turn ordinary Hong Kongers against the protest movement. Such a change in sentiments does not yet appear to have happened, despite rising violence surrounding protests and the shutdown of the city’s usually bustling international airport for two days after it was occupied by demonstrators.

ABORTION SUPPORT REMAINS STRONG

The proportion of Americans who say that abortions should be legal in all or most cases, according to a Public Religion Research Institute survey released Tuesday that involved an extraordinarily large sample of 40,292 interviews measuring abortion attitudes throughout 2018. The survey found that no more than a quarter of residents in any state support a total ban despite the increasing political divide on the issue. These numbers are nearly the same as in a similar 2014 survey, when 55% of Americans said abortion should be legal.

CHRISTCHURCH New Zealand officials admitted Wednesday that they made a mistake by allowing the man accused of killing 51 people at two Christchurch mosques to send a hand-written letter from his prison cell. The six-page letter from Brenton Tarrant was posted this week on the website 4chan, which has become notorious as a place for white supremacists to post their views. And it comes at a sensitive time, with other alleged killers from El Paso to Norway citing Tarrant as an inspiration. The letter appears to be written in pencil on a notepad and is addressed to “Alan” in Russia. Much of it appears to be relatively innocuous, discussing a one-month trip Tarrant says he took to Russia in 2015. But the letter also warns that a “great conflict” is coming and uses language that could be construed as a call to arms. Corrections Minister Kelvin Davis said in statement that he didn’t believe the prison system should have allowed Tarrant to send the letter. “I have made myself clear that this cannot happen again,” Davis said. But Davis also said that all New Zealand prisoners have rights that include the ability to send and receive mail. He said the prison system can withhold correspondence and did withhold some other letters Tarrant had attempted to send or receive. NICK PERRY (AP)

Unusual development in bond market causes markets to fall and fears to rise confidence in the near-term prospects of the economy and rushing to buy longer-term bonds, the U.S. government now is paying more to attract buyers to its 2-year bond than its 10-year note. This phenomenon, which suggests investor faith in the economy is faltering, has preceded every recession in the past 50 years. “The stars are aligned across the curve that the economy is headed for a big fall,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at MUFG Union Bank. “The yield curves are all crying timber that a recession is almost a reality, and investors are tripping over themselves to get out of the way.” It’s the latest in a string of worrisome news about the U.S. economy. The government is expected to spend roughly $1 trillion more than it brings in through revenue this year, creating a ballooning deficit. Business investment has begun to contract — largely due to the uncertainty surrounding President Trump’s trade war — and manufacturing jobs have begun to slide. The big hiring and investment announcements that piled up at the beginning of the Trump administration have ceased, as have the announcements of bonuses and pay increases that came after a tax cut law was passed in 2017. Instead of rolling out new policies, Trump and other top aides have escalated their attacks on

BUSINESS The global economy has begun to shudder. On Wednesday, the U.S. stock market tumbled after a reliable predictor of looming recessions flashed for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 800 points, or 3.05%, the worst percentage drop of the year and the fourth-largest point drop of all time. Two of the world’s largest economies, Germany and the United Kingdom, appear to be contracting. Argentina’s stock market fell nearly 50% in recent days, and growth in China has slowed. Whether the events presage an economic calamity or just an alarming spasm are unclear. But unlike during the Great Recession, global leaders are not working in unison to confront mounting problems and arrest the slowdown. Instead, they are increasingly at each other’s throats. Wednesday’s sharp selloff was caused by an unusual development in the bond market, called an “inverted yield curve,” that often foreshadows a recession. For the first time since the run-up to the Great Recession, the yields — or returns — on short-term U.S. bonds eclipsed those of long-term bonds. Normally, the government needs to pay out higher rates to attract investors for its long-term bonds. But with so many losing

But the Trump administration has already cut taxes and boosted spending, and there appears to be little political appetite to do more of either. White House officials have discussed a plan to make changes to the way capital gains taxes are levied, but that would only impact certain investors and has already faced criticism from Democrats for being a boon to the rich.

What about the employers? IMMIGRATION The images of children crying after their parents were arrested in a massive immigration raid in Mississippi revived a longstanding complaint: Unauthorized workers are jailed or deported, while the managers and business owners who profit from their labor often go unprosecuted. Under President Trump, the number of business owners and managers who face charges for employing unauthorized workers has stayed almost the same, even as almost every other enforcement measure has surged. Last week’s raids at seven chicken-processing plants were the largest worksite operation conducted under the Trump administration. The operation led to 680 arrests of people in the U.S. illegally, with expected criminal charges to follow for some. But no plant owners or top managers were immediately charged, following the pattern of other recent sweeps. Lawyers and experts agree that investigating managers takes longer and is far more difficult than arresting workers. A key hurdle is that federal law makes it a crime to “knowingly” hire workers who are in the U.S. illegally. “The ‘knowingly’ term has proved to be a huge defense for employers,” said Muzaffar Chishti, a senior fellow at the

Managers often go unpunished after ICE arrests migrant workers

Immigration officials last week raided seven plants in Mississippi, leading to 680 arrests, but no owners or managers were immediately charged.

An alternative? Thomas Saenz, president of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, argued that ramping up penalties for employing unauthorized workers was counterproductive. Instead, he said, the U.S. should better enforce workplace safety standards and prevent wage theft, reducing the incentive for unscrupulous businesses to hire unauthorized workers. (AP)

Migration Policy Institute. “The employer says, ‘I’m sorry, I didn’t know they were unauthorized.’ ” In a statement Tuesday,

Matthew Albence, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said that anyone found to have broken the law in the Mississippi case would be held accountable, including “the employers who profit off their crimes.” Warrants unsealed after the Mississippi arrests allege that managers at two processing plants participated in fraud. After Trump took office, thenacting Director Thomas Homan declared that ICE would try to increase all worksite enforcement actions by 400%. ICE succeeded almost across the board in just one government fiscal year. According to

statistics the agency released in December, it quadrupled the number of investigations it opened and audits of paperwork submitted by employees to get hired. And it made 2,304 arrests in worksite cases, seven times as many as the previous year. The major exception was for managers. ICE arrested just 72 managers in the 2018 fiscal year, compared with 71 the year before. And 49 managers were convicted of crimes, down from 55 the previous year. Congress first created criminal penalties for employers in 1986. According to researchers at Syracuse University, prosecutions under the law banning employers from knowingly employing unauthorized workers have rarely exceeded 15 a year since then. Between April 2018 and this March, just 11 people were prosecuted in seven cases. While both Republicans and Democrats have previously supported enforcement of workplace immigration laws as a way to protect U.S. citizen workers, many businesses are having trouble finding workers due to low unemployment nationally. They quietly rely on unauthorized labor to stay productive, making prosecutions politically unpopular, Chishti said. Trump himself has been accused of employing unauthorized workers at his hotels, golf courses and other businesses. “On paper, there is a lot of enforcement of law, but in reality, people are constantly abusing the law,” Chishti said.

An archaeological dig at the Alamo to help preserve the historic Texas mission has unearthed musket balls that experts say could date to the 1800s. Crews are digging four pits to help expose a 1700s limestone wall to its foundation in an effort to fight moisture. Archaeologist Kristi Nichols says workers so far have recovered musket balls, a mid1800s bottle and tin-glazed majolica from the Spanish colonial period. The survey began last month. (AP)

FDA approves pill to treat TB’s toughest cases HEALTH The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved a new drug for highly drug-resistant tuberculosis, the world’s leading infectious cause of death. Tuberculosis kills 1.6 million people a year, about 500,000 of whom suffer from drug-resistant strains of the disease. The antibiotic, called pretomanid, was developed by the nonprofit group TB Alliance at a time when few companies are investing in the expensive endeavor of creating nextgeneration antibiotics. Pretomanid is part of a threedrug regimen against highly resistant forms of TB and is the third FDA-approved anti-TB drug in more than 40 years. TB Alliance said 95 of its first 107 patients in its clinical trial had a successful outcome after six months of treatment. The historical treatment success rate is 34%. Drug-resistant TB is currently treated with myriad drugs and can require thousands of pills. It has been reported by more than 120 countries, according to the World Health Organization. TB Alliance said it hopes the FDA’s approval will enable other countries, such as China, India and South Africa to OK the drug and make it available to their residents. The disease is highly contagious and spreads through coughing, sneezing or even talking. YASMEEN ABUTALEB (THE WASHINGTON POST)

nation+world 1-year litigation period gives sex abuse victims a second chance to sue COURTS The Roman Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, schools and hospitals are some of the targets named in a flurry of sex abuse lawsuits filed Wednesday in New York as the state began accepting cases once blocked by the statute of limitations. Hundreds, if not thousands, of lawsuits were filed as plaintiffs rushed to take advantage of the one-year litigation window, created by state lawmakers this year to give people who say they were victims a second chance to sue over abuse that, in many cases,

happened decades ago. Suits filed Wednesday include one from 45 former Rockefeller University Hospital patients who say a renowned endocrinologist molested hundreds of boys over more than three decades. Hundreds of others sued the Catholic Church or one of its several New York dioceses. Among them is Brian Toale, who pushed lawmakers to approve the litigation window. Toale, 66, said he was molested by an employee at a Catholic high school he attended on Long Island. “Every time a survivor comes forward, there’s another survivor who finds the strength,” Toale said. Another suit filed Wednesday accused former Albany Bishop

Howard Hubbard, who retired in 2014, of sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy in the 1990s. An attorney for Hubbard, 80, denied

the claim. The state’s statute of limitations had been among the nation’s most restrictive before state lawmakers extended it earlier this year for new cases. The Child Victims Act gives victims until age 55 to file lawsuits and until age 28 to seek criminal charges, compared with 23 under the old statute. That law also created the litigation window. “This is a momentous time for courageous survivors who have waited so long for justice in New York,” said Jeff Anderson, an attorney whose firm, New York-based Jeff Anderson & Associates, filed molestation lawsuits Wednesday on behalf of hundreds of clients.

Vaping companies sue to delay U.S. review of e-cigarettes

NEW YORK Jail guards on duty the night Jeffrey Epstein apparently killed himself are suspected of falsifying log entries to show they were checking on inmates every half-hour as required, according to a person familiar with the investigation into the financier’s death. Surveillance video shows guards never made some of the checks noted in the log, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss the case. In the days since the financier’s death, a picture has emerged of the Metropolitan Correctional Institution in New York as a chronically understaffed jail. Meanwhile, the fight over Epstein’s estate began taking shape, with a woman filing a lawsuit Wednesday claiming he raped her when she was a teenager in 2002. Jennifer Araoz sued Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell and three unnamed members of his staff — the first of many lawsuits expected to be filed by Epstein’s accusers as a new New York state law went into effect Wednesday that opens up a one-year window for victims of long-ago sex crimes against children to take legal action. The lawsuit accuses Maxwell of helping Epstein recruit teenage girls and providing “organizational support to Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.” MICHAEL R. SISAK, MICHAEL BALSAMO AND JIM MUSTIAN (AP)

JAY-Z defends partnership with the NFL

RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU

Offense comes into focus It’s time for the Redskins to show their real offense. Well, if not their real offensive plays, then at least their real

offensive starters. Quarterback Case Keenum and the first-teamers might play into the second quarter against the Bengals tonight at FedEx Field (7:30, NBC/NBCSW). The defense is largely set, with just a few question marks left. But there are offensive position battles raging at quarterback, left tackle and receiver with two preseason games

WASHINGTON POST, AP AND GETTY IMAGES

remaining before the throwaway finale. Here are five players to watch in Washington’s preseason home opener.

QB Dwayne Haskins

OLB Montez Sweat

LT Geron Christian

WR Josh Doctson

RB Samaje Perine

The question is not whether the first-rounder is ready to start, because he’s not. The Redskins most want to know if Haskins can be the No. 2 or will he be inactive each week. The loser of the Case Keenum-Colt McCoy battle likely will become the No. 3 passer, which means few weekly practice reps. So the Redskins hope Haskins rises to No. 2 to at least run the opposing offense in practice against the starting defense. Haskins’ footwork is erratic and he needs to realize that linebackers and safeties can jump routes if he stares too long.

The first-round pick should make his preseason debut tonight after he was slowed by a calf injury. Sweat is expected to beat Ryan Anderson for the starting role, but needs to prove himself. His size and speed are impressive, but let’s see some skills. Anderson has been fair against the run over two seasons, but the Redskins want more pass pressure to keep opponents from focusing on Ryan Kerrigan on the other side. In practices, Sweat had quick moves past tackles and his run defense seems equal to Anderson’s. Sweat wins the job with a sack or two.

The Redskins will need a Plan B even if Trent Williams returns, given the Pro Bowler has missed games in each of the past five seasons. Christian, a third-round pick in 2018, is coming off a poor rookie season. He played only two games before getting injured. The Redskins weren’t impressed with his practices, either. But he has looked better this preseason, especially when pulling. Still, veteran Donald Penn lurks as a close second. Most likely, Washington will give Christian two starts to prove himself before Penn gets the regular-season nod.

He might not be fighting for a starting role, but a roster spot. The 2016 first-rounder will be a free agent next year and given his lackluster performance and injury woes, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Redskins cut Doctson for younger options. So he has to give them a reason to keep him. In recent practices, Doctson made two leaping grabs that showed why Washington drafted him so high. But the GM who drafted Doctson is long gone, so he has nobody to champion him. He gets two preseason games to prove himself.

Coach Jay Gruden loves this underperforming running back. Perine often disappears into the line and never seems to re-emerge for a long gain. As a rookie in 2017, he averaged 3.4 yards per attempt and had only one touchdown in 175 carries. Last year, he was inactive 11 games with only eight carries. It figures Perine is on the way out, but he practices well and Gruden talks him up. Still, Perine needs a big game effort to secure his role or he’ll be vulnerable when injured Bryce Love returns. Byron Marshall could take his spot, too.

A day after JAY-Z announced that his Roc Nation company was partnering with the NFL for events and social activism, the rapper said he still supports protesting, kneeling and former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but he’s also interested in working with the league to make substantial changes. “I think we’ve moved past kneeling and I think it’s time to go into actionable items,” he said. Earlier this year, the NFL settled a lawsuit brought by Kaepernick and Eric Reid alleging owners colluded to keep them from playing. Reid has criticized JAY-Z’s deal with the league. When asked why he didn’t involve Kaepernick in the deal, JAY-Z said: “You’d have to ask him. I’m not his boss.” (AP)

Caron Butler said he was inspired by longtime Wizards TV analyst Phil Chenier.

an assistant coach with the Celtics a couple of weeks earlier, and reached out to Butler about joining Kutcher in the booth for a select number of games. “God works in mysterious ways, man,” said Butler, who will call roughly 20 Wizards games while continuing to contribute to Turner Sports’ NBA coverage. “They understood where I was at and knew if I could participate, it would be me coming in for a small pocket of games.” Butler said he owes his interest in broadcasting to Chenier, who served as a Wizards TV analyst for 33 years, and recalled one particularly affecting conversation with Chenier before the start of one of his five seasons in D.C. “ I fel l i n love w it h t he

WIZARDS When he’s not back in his native Racine, Wis., dedicating a new basketball court, traveling the world as a member of the Board of Directors for the NBA’s Retired Players Association, or advocating against mass incarceration with the Vera Institute of Justice, Caron Butler spends most of his time in Los Angeles. He’s overseeing the making of two films, including his biopic, which is being produced by Mark Wahlberg, and working on a second book. Beginning this fall, the 39-yearold Butler will add Wizards TV analyst to his numerous pursuits. Butler originally auditioned for the analyst position that opened up when play-by-play man Steve Buckhantz’s longtime broadcast partner and Bullets legend Phil Chenier was moved out of the role after the 2016-17 season. Kara Lawson ultimately got the job, but Butler, who spent five of his 14 NBA seasons in Washington, told people at the network to keep him in mind if another opportunity arose. NBC Sports Washington decided not to bring back the beloved Buckhantz for a 23rd season and announced Fox Sports’ Justin Kutcher as his replacement last month. The network hired former Wizard Drew Gooden to replace Lawson, who left after two seasons to become

interviewing process,” said Butler, who has worked as an NBA and college basketball analyst for ESPN, Fox Sports, Turner and NBA TV. “The reason I felt so comfortable to open up to him is because I was once him. I felt like he was so open in our oneon-one discussion. I said I would like to be on the other side of this one day, being in that chair, just talking. That was huge for me. Mr. Chenier, he did that for me, and hopefully I can do that for others.” The Wizards acquired Butler via a trade with the Lakers in July 2005. Led by the core of Butler, Antawn Jamison and Gilbert Arenas, Washington made the playoffs in each of the next three years. Butler quickly established himself as a fan favorite and set a career high in points per game in each of his first four seasons in D.C. In February 2010, with Arenas suspended indefinitely and the Wizards in the midst of a dismal season, Butler was traded to the Mavericks in a deal that brought four players, including Gooden, to Washington. Gooden played the final three seasons of his 14-year NBA career in D.C. and filled in for Lawson on several Wizards broadcasts last season. “Adding Caron Butler and Drew Gooden, we’ve been able to go back about 15 years into Wizards history, with two of the most popular players of this era working our games,” NBC Sports Washington General Manager Damon Phillips said.

1921 Sunderland Place NW

The driving range here isn’t fancy, but in a city where even bowling is glamorized, there’s something freeing about launching balls into the air while drinking a tallboy. An $8 token gets you a bucket of 68 balls, enough for an hour or so of leisurely hitting. A pint of canned domestic beer (think PBR or Coors Light) runs $5 all day, with craft options and canned cocktails fetching a few dollars more. Deals are prime on Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m., when a happy hour bucket of balls and a beer start at $11. The range provides complimentary practice clubs, so there’s no need to schlep your own gear.

The Heurich House Museum, also known as the Brewmaster’s Castle, is not the most obvious destination for gathering over a pint. But earlier this year, the museum launched a weekly happy hour to draw awareness to its brewing legacy. Happy hour runs from roughly 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays in the mansion’s secluded courtyard. Guests are also welcome inside the building to browse the small beer history exhibit. Beers ($7) are always local and rotating — past evenings have featured Sankofa Beer Company and Port City Brewing Company.

We’d have to go to the Langdon Park Pool. It’s a great intersection of a lot of different communities. I always meet someone new when we go there, and it’s a huge form of self-care for me to watch our kids gleefully play in the water together.

Taking time out for meditation and yoga may feel selfindulgent at a moment when the world seems to be falling apart, but caring for yourself and caring for the world are two sides of the same coin, says Gracy Obuchowicz, 37, a wellness guru who grew up in Northern Virginia and now lives in Brookland. That’s also the main message of her new book, “selfcarefully.� “It’s about how to be deeper in your self-care and braver in your social activism,� she says. “If you’re hitting the sweet spot, one grows naturally out of the other.� For her dream day, Obuchowicz has imagined a full, nourishing itinerary of food, nature, exercise and cool commodes.

I’d hang out with my toddler, Jonah, and my husband, Micah, and just have a slow morning around the house.

There’s a homeless services program in the Columbia Heights area called Thrive DC — I started teaching a yoga class there more than 10 years ago and now I’m on the board.

We’d go to Thip Khao in Columbia Heights. They have this fried watercress salad that’s served with mangoes and cashews. I’d also get the khao poon; it’s a tofu coconut curry. I think it’s the best restaurant in D.C. Afterwards, we’d get dessert at Momo Yakitori. It’s a Japanese restaurant and they have this giant charred marshmallow that comes with a sweet, black sesame seed paste. Oh, and I don’t know if this is weird to mention, but they also have these amazing toilets — imported toilets from Japan. The seats are heated and they send you off with a warm breeze.

The planet’s best Pokémon players will face off this weekend at the 2019 World Championships

ETC ... Regan Retzloff hopes he can play his cards right. The 13-year-old will compete this weekend at the 2019 Pokémon World Championships in D.C., going for a share of over $500,000 in prize money. Regan plays the traditional card game; there will also be tournaments for the “Pokémon Ultra Sun” and “Pokémon Ultra Moon” role-playing video games, as well as “Pokkén Tournament,” a fighting video game. And there’s an open tournament for more casual players. Regan, whose favorite Pokémon these days is Weezing, will be competing in the seniors division (for those born in 2005-2008) after punching his ticket with a second-place finish at the North America International Championships in Columbus, Ohio, in June. (You can watch his match, complete with commentary, on YouTube. It was a squeaker.) “I first got into Pokémon when my friends from baseball started to play and I had Pokémon cards but didn’t know what they did,” says Regan, who lives in Cape Coral, Fla. “My parents took me to a comic shop and that’s where I learned to play.” Regan now regularly plays in tournaments, as well as in a weekly league.

Pokémon players (like these at the 2016 world championships in San Francisco) will do battle in D.C. this weekend.

Though there is competition, this weekend’s event at the Washington Convention Center is really a celebration of all things Pokémon, from a common lowCP Pidgey to a holographic firstedition Charizard. “This is the culmination of everything Pokémon for the year,” says Elvin Gee, marketing manager for Pokémon Company International. The sold-out event will include not only the championship (which can be streamed at twitch.tv/team/pokemon), but a video gaming lounge with demo versions of “Pokémon Sword”

and “Pokémon Shield,” which won’t be released until November; classes for those who want to learn; Regan and four screenings of the 2019 animated film “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.” “We expect more than 6,000 attendees. About 2,300 are competitors coming from over 40 countries,” says Gee, whose favorite Pokémon is Snorlax. “There are no borders when it comes to Pokémon.” Wolfe Glick knows that. If

Regan is the young startup, Glick is the vetera n. He’l l be playing “Pokémon Ultra Sun” Glick and “Pokémon Ultra Moon” on the Nintendo 3DS this weekend — it’s his ninth world championship tournament (he won in 2016). This one will be a little easier to get to, since the McLean, Va., native, 23, lives in the Mount Vernon Triangle area of D.C. (“It’s the first time I’ll be able to walk,” he says.) “I’ve made a lot of friends

through the game and I have this whole community I’ve been a part of for the past nine years. I have friends where we don’t speak the same language, but we can still play Pokémon,” says Glick, whose favorite Pokémon during his childhood was Chikorita. “The reason I’ve been playing so long is I’ve got friends all over the world, and if I weren’t playing I wouldn’t be able to see them as much.” Despite — or because of — Glick’s long history as a competitor, he isn’t cocky. “In some games, if you’re one of the best, you’re expected to win every time,” he says. “But with Pokémon, there’s a lot of luck involved and it’s a very complicated game. You can play it well and still lose; you can play it poorly and win.” Regan is looking at the tournament a bit differently. “Pokémon is kind of strategic and I’ve always been good at strategy games,” he says. “And I play in a lot of tournaments. I’m not that nervous because I’m used to it.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (FOR EXPRESS)

Soccer, soccer everywhere

You might have noticed that soccer is all around us this summer. And we’re not just talking about D.C. United, the four-time MLS champions who have been attracting even more fans with their modern new Audi Field and the scoring exploits of MLS all-star Wayne Rooney. The Washington Spirit are riding their own wave of interest on the back of the Women’s World Cup, thanks to U.S. team stars Rose Lavelle and Mallory Pugh. And Loudoun United, a D.C. United affiliate that plays in the second-division USL Championship, just moved into Segra Field in Leesburg, Va. Here’s how to fully embrace the sport around the area. FRITZ HAHN (THE WASHINGTON POST)

D.C. United traded up when the team relocated from RFK Stadium to Audi Field, seen here.

JONATHAN NEWTON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

D.C. United

D.C. United fans cheer on the team during a match this month at Audi Field.

There were plenty of improvements when D.C. United moved from shabby, cavernous RFK Stadium to the sleek Audi Field last year: better sightlines, better food and drink, fewer raccoons. The new stadium, which cost more than $400 million, is just two blocks southwest of Nationals Park. The 20,000 supporters sit in steeply banked sections, and even when fans are seated at the top, they don’t feel too far away from the pitch. There’s a rooftop bar behind one goal and, on a sunny weekend day, the crowds drinking beer and wine aren’t much different from the ones hanging out on a U Street rooftop, except there’s a soccer match taking place below. Chef José Andrés is the “curator”

of United’s food menus, which include tacos and Spanish-style grilled cheese. First-time visitors to D.C. United matches are often mesmerized by the groups standing in the supporters sections behind the goal — Barra Brava, District Ultras and Screaming Eagles — who sing, pound drums and wave giant flags throughout the entire match. After United scores, the fans literally make it rain beer. If there’s one thing missing amid the chanting and the rooftop party vibes, it’s a sense of United’s proud history, as former coach Bruce Arena pointed out last month. You’d hope that championship banners from the team’s four MLS Cup victories would fly high at the stadium entrance, or that supporters would walk

past murals of legends Marco Etcheverry and John Harkes on the way to their seats instead of ads for beers and banks. The team’s MLS Cups are on display in the club shop, an unintended metaphor wryly appreciated by longtime fans. Even when the team is losing, large sections of the crowd stand, shout and chant. That’s why a trip to Audi Field is a must for any D.C. sports fan.

weekendpass Loudoun United Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with Loudoun United FC. The team was founded just over a year ago and played its first competitive match in March. Loudoun United is D.C. United’s affiliate in the United Soccer League, a professional league one rung below Major League Soccer, where rivals include former D.C. United affiliate Richmond Kickers and Bethlehem Steel FC, the affiliate of the Philadelphia Union. Loudoun’s roster is made up of a mix of D.C. United draft picks and academy players and USL veterans. Think of them as United’s minor league team. For the first half of its inaugural season, Loudoun United FC has played in Audi Field. That changed last weekend, when Segra Field opened inside Philip A. Bolen Park, a multisport facility in Leesburg. Segra Field holds 5,0 0 0 spectators with seats on all sides of the field.

Once the match kicks off, the Spirit Squadron provides a steady soundtrack of drums and chanting on the generaladmission side of the field. If there’s a downside to watching the Spirit play, it’s actually going to watch the Spirit play. While “Washington” is in the team name, the SoccerPlex is around an hour’s drive from downtown Washington. Interest in the team has spiked at the perfect time for the Spirit,

LOUDOUN UNITED

After the Women’s World Cup smashed viewership records and the U.S. national team was feted at a ticker-tape parade down New York City’s Canyon of Heroes, soccer observers began to wonder what the U.S. victory would mean for the future of the National Women’s Soccer League. If you were at the Washington Spirit’s match against the Houston Dash on July 20, seeing young girls and boys alike wearing Mallory Pugh and Alex Morgan’s jerseys or chasing balls around the gently sloping grassy bank that serves as general admission seating behind one goal, you’d think the future was bright. The Spirit have played at Maureen Hendricks Field — the centerpiece of the Maryland SoccerPlex, a sprawling multisport complex in Boyds, Md. — since 2013. The field has the intimacy of a college stadium, with metal bleachers so close to the touchlines that fans can hear players shouting directions at each other. Before (and sometimes during) matches, the wide concourses are filled with families buying shaved ice, smoothies and pizza by the slice; playing games, such

Stampede, the official supporters club, will gather in generaladmission bleacher seats at the south end of the stadium, where singing, drumming and standing are encouraged. Contrast that with the rows of “Premium AllInclusive Seats” at midfield — tickets for these padded chairs with cupholders also include unlimited food and drink. “We understand this is a very family-centric community,” team communications manager Emma Carlin says, so they’ve planned a dedicated “kids’ zone” that will have pizza, hot dogs and childfriendly foods, as well as games.

Loudoun United recently moved to a multisport facility in Leesburg, Va.

weekendpass Q&A | JIA TOLENTINO

Putting her best ‘I’ forward Houston native Jia Tolentino made her name as a writer of sharp, feminist cultural criticism at The Hairpin and Jezebel before joining the staff of The New Yorker in 2016. Her reflections on living, working and surviving in the social media age invite readers to ponder the kinds of stories we tell ourselves and others about our lives. At Politics and Prose on Tuesday, she’ll talk about her first book, the essay collection “Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion,” in which she examines social media pressures to turn personality into a product, major scams of recent history and the central role deception of self and others plays in American life. SHARONE CARMONA (FOR EXPRESS) When you write about social media, for example, where representing yourself and your life can sometimes seem like a substitute for actually being yourself in your life, you make sure your participation in social media is visible. Is this an ethical thing for you? There’s a part of me that takes very naturally to these structures of self-broadcasting without seemingly changing too much or thinking too much about it at all. Basically, I’ve adopted the approach of not trying to think of myself as having a personal brand and just trying to be on the internet the way that I am in real life. But also I try to live in such a way that everything I do is better to live in than to communicate or photograph. As long as I care more about my life and my work than [how I come across], then I prefer not to think about it at all. So how do you decide what to hold back? I think the main [question] is, Am I showing myself for a purpose?

Jia Tolentino thinks we’d all live better lives if we kept our BS to a minimum.

ELENA MUDD

One theme of the book is that the ways we are implicated in internet life get more complicated all the time. On social media, having an opinion about a given subject has come to be seen as a political end unto itself, but it doesn’t actually accomplish anything most of the time. How do you deal with that? I think of my position in the opinion ecosystem the way I approach putting myself in my writing. I actually don’t say what I think that often; it’s just that when I do, I try to make it worth everyone’s time. And it’s the same with Twitter. I don’t use it that much, but it seems like I do. I don’t always write about myself that much — I just try to use the “I” very strongly when I do. When I’m trying to figure out what I think about something, I’m doing it for my own clarity and moral compass and sense of being in the world. I try to be responsible audience-wise, but mostly I think the hardest person to be original and surprising and interesting for is myself.

Can I use myself to get to the point faster or get to the point clearer or show the sensory, lived experience of what I’m writing about? But also, don’t you find that the really, really good stuff, you forget to take pictures of? I try to keep the really, really good stuff for myself.

exposing something stupid about myself. [But] I’m pretty good about using social media in a way that’s about pleasure rather than about need. Also, my career has depended on my ability to selfpromote in a vaguely palatable way. For better or worse, I’ve become someone who writes about the internet constantly, so I use it for material, which feels kind of bad, but it’s gonna be what it is.

You set limits too. You don’t use Instagram Stories, you have apps that limit your use of other apps, and you went off social media for a month to finish a writing project. Were you tempted not to come back? No, because I actually am pretty good about not using the internet that much. I don’t think it seems like it because when I do tweet I’m usually dramatically

I’m thinking about what we have to accept in order to be part of this ecosystem, so how much self-delusion is bad and how much is necessary? We need some degree of selfdelusion — like, we can’t think about how much data is being trapped and resold by all these corporations or we’ll go insane. That being said, ever since I was a teenager, it has seemed to me

that there’s some clear benefit in trying to bulls--- yourself as little as you can. We’d be better citizens in the world, I’d go about my life better, with an understanding of how easy it is to bulls--- myself. Is this situation salvageable? Yeah, I think it’s possible in the near term. The internet, capitalism, patriarchy — it’s all trying to dehumanize us, and we’re all doing our best. It’s still worthwhile to keep trying and to be alive and to experience things. But in general, it’s agonizing. But it’s kind of appropriate right now to consider that maybe it’s salvageable but it’s not redeemable, and that might be how we have to live.

TRENDS When you think of D.C.’s major cultural exports, punk and go-go come to mind. But over the past decade, a new contender has emerged: ’90s nostalgia. Before you scoff, consider this: The No Scrubs: ’90s Dance Party, which launched in D.C. in 2003, has gone on to pack venues in Atlanta; Birmingham, Ala.; Charlottesville and Baltimore, according to co-founder and DJ Will Eastman. D.C.-based ’90s cover band White Ford Bronco has risen to monster success since forming in 2008, recently playing to a crowd of 1,200 in New York. Peach Pit, a ’90s dance night at DC9, is taking the party to Minneapolis for the event’s 10th anniversary. And a new R&B-focused event, Nostalgia: The 90s Experience, may soon pop up in L.A. after its inaugural edition here, according to

Wherever ’90s cover band White Ford Bronco goes, its devoted fans are sure to follow.

ASTRID RIECKEN (FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

‘90s nostalgia is bangin’ in D.C., and its purveyors don’t see it ending soon

organizer Fred Baum, 50. “The interest in the ’90s is going strong everywhere, but it’s really strong in the DMV,” Baum says. One likely reason D.C. is a ’90s nostalgia hotbed is the region’s great concentration of millennials, who are getting misty-eyed for their youth as they take on

grown-up responsibilities. But ’90s love is turning out to be a bigger phenomenon than the usual, 10-year nostalgia cycle. Starting just a few years after the turn of the 21st century, it’s since become a major force in fashion (scrunchies!), music (MC Hammer’s on tour) and screens both large (“The Lion King”) and

narrative, notes Nick Gatewood, 40, an Ohio-based rapper who goes by the name Vice Souletric and tours the country with his nostalgia event, the Nu 90s Experience, which returned to D.C. this past weekend. “Everything moves too fast now. By the time you’ve heard about something, there’s already a backlash,” he says. “No one is going to have a deep, personal connection to Pizza Rat.” Another factor driving ’90s nostalgia is how the internet has made the past more accessible than ever before, says White Ford Bronco singer-guitarist Diego Valencia, 37. In the ’90s, you had to wait for your favorite song to play on the radio or buy a CD, so music felt more precious back then. Now you can watch or listen to anything you want, from any era, on demand — and that seems to have made people more interested in rehashing and remixing the past rather than creating new, original things. “If you listen to contemporary music now, a lot of songs sound like something that we’ve already heard before. If you look at, say, ‘Uptown Funk’ or ‘Blurred Lines,’ they sound so much like other songs,” Valencia says. “Or there’s DJ Khaled, who has made a career out of taking other people’s ideas and adding his name to it.” While Valencia suspects our extended ’90s obsession marks the end of reminiscing as we know it, Eastman, 50, sees a future in nostalgia. In fact, he’s banked on it with two more parties, Hot in Herre: 2000s Dance Party and Can’t Feel My Face: 2010s Dance Party. “I personally love the Hot in Herre party the most, because those are the songs I played when I first got into DJing,” he says. But while Eastman’s ’00s party is gaining momentum, it seems unlikely that aughts nostalgia will burn as brightly or for as long as ’90s nostalgia has. “Most parties are done in a couple years,” he says. “It’s a real exception to have an event that lasts a decade — and at this point, No Scrubs the party has lasted longer than the ’90s itself.” SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS)

small (“BH90210”). Another factor that may be driving ’90s madness is our current dumpster fire of a century, which ignited on Sept. 11, 2001, blazed on with the Great Recession and continues to cough up fresh nightmares on an almost daily basis, says Jacob Juhl, a nostalgia researcher at the University of Southampton in England. “People become nostalgic in response to adversity or psychologically negative states,” Juhl says. “Nostalgia helps restore people to a psychological equilibrium.” Scientists have induced nostalgia in the lab by prompting people to contemplate the vast and random universe as well as by simply pumping up the air conditioning and making people feel uncomfortably cold, Juhl says. Researchers have also found that nostalgia comforts us by making us feel connected to one another and to a shared past, he adds. Since the ’90s were the last moment before the internet splintered mass culture, the decade is particularly good nostalgia fodder, says Peach Pit DJ and founder Matt Bailer, 42. “In the ’90s, everyone listened to the same one or two radio stations in their city that played all the Top 40 hits, spanning all kinds of genres,” he says. “After that, people started having their own ways of accessing and acquiring and listening to the music they chose to listen to, so there wasn’t such a general pool of commonality.” Without those shared cultural touchstones, the current decade may prove difficult to reminisce about down the road, says David Newman, a nostalgia researcher at the University of Southern California. “Since everything seems to be more individualistic now and people are all having different experiences, we might have fewer of these collectivistic nostalgic experiences overall,” Newman says. Mass culture in the 21st century feels more like a grab bag of random events than a coherent

Is Woodstock burned out? The festival, which launched 50 years ago today, was a troubled spectacle from the start

COMMEMORATION

See, hear what Woodstock was actually like

AP

Woodstock promoter Michael Lang’s 50th anniversary festival crashed and burned, proving you can’t re-create history. You can, however, relive Woodstock these ways. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS) A crowd of some 400,000 people descended on Bethel, N.Y., for the original Woodstock festival in August 1969.

WILL WALDRON (AP)

MUSIC Depending on your birth year, the word “Woodstock” probably conjures vastly different memories. For children of the 1960s, it’s often synonymous with peace and love, spiritual vibes and Utopian, antiwar sentiment. For those of the 1990s, it may summon visions of war itself, with its man-made fires, assaults and general anarchy. For some, it sounds like a joke along the lines of Fyre Festival — just another troubled production that never occurred. Although there have been several iterations of Woodstock, there are only three that matter: the original in 1969, memorialized in Michael Wadleigh’s documentary; the boisterous, disastrous one in 1999; and this year’s 50th anniversary festival, which imploded before coming to fruition. It is both easy and lazy “to say we were peace and love in the late ’60s, violent in the ’90s and now, in 2019, too cynical to allow Woodstock to happen,” says music journalist Steven Hyden. “In reality, there’s a lot more similarity between these festivals than there might appear.” From Aug. 15-18, 1969, about 400,000 hippies gathered in Bethel, N.Y., for that first festival to take drugs and listen to music from Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and The Band. The event was rife with problems: Bands performed hours after they were scheduled (The Who went on at 5 a.m.); an anarchist group tore down the fencing so fans could attend for free; and two people died. Yet it gained the reputation of being a joyous, blissful experience. That misconception largely comes from Wadleigh’s 1970 documentary, which embedded an idealized version of Woodstock in the cultural consciousness. “Everything we consider to

The 30th anniversary Woodstock festival, held in July 1999, devolved into chaos on its final day as attendees lit fire to trailers and debris.

be a real, canonical Woodstock moment[s] … is from the film,” says music historian Andy Zax. When Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang attempted to recreate the festival three decades later, things only got worse. This time, the festivities took place in Rome, N.Y. Like its predecessor, the festival was loosely planned. Once it began, the July heat was incredible. Water fountains barely worked, and those that did were guarded by “Mud People,” an

Comedy Central orders Phoebe Robinson interview show

“It looked like a carpet. It didn’t even look like people — it was a big spread, multi-colored as far as you can see.” NANCY NEVINS, of Sweetwater, telling AP about her helicopter view of the 1969 Woodstock festival

aggressive group of attendees who slathered themselves in the brown stuff — which may not have been only mud, as there were problems with the toilets, as well. One young man, David DeRosia, died after suffering hyperthermia. Sexual harassment and assault were pervasive. The final day descended into flaming riots. So why did this disaster happen in 1999, if the 1969 festival faced the same organizational issues? As former Creedence Clearwater Revival bassist Stu Cook points out, “There was so much magic in the original Woodstock. You can’t expect that to happen now. Now it’s just more of a financial venture.” Or perhaps it’s nothing at all. At the end of July, after a series of financial problems, venue changes and artist dropouts, Woodstock 50 was canceled a little more than two weeks before it was set to take place. “Everything has an expiration date,” Hyden says. “I think Woodstock passed that a long time ago.” TRAVIS M. ANDREWS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Variety: Harry Styles declines “Little Mermaid” role

‘Woodstock — As It Happened — 50 Years On’ Starting today, Philadelphia radio station WXPN will broadcast Woodstock’s full audio archives in real time on the air and online for free — beginning with Richie Havens at 5:07 p.m. and ending with Jimi Hendrix’s 9 a.m. set Sunday. Culled from the new “Back to the Garden” box set, it will even include set breaks and stage announcements.

‘Woodstock’ Last week, as part of its “American Experience” series, PBS premiered this documentary about the people who organized and attended Woodstock. The film, streaming on Netflix or for free via PBS, also explores the mythology around the event.

Merriweather Movie Nights: ‘Woodstock’ There was a moment last month when it appeared Columbia, Md.’s Merriweather Post Pavilion would host Woodstock 50. It fell apart, so the venue will instead screen the famed 1970 documentary on the festival at 7 p.m. Friday (tickets cost $10).

Asked by CNN’s Erin Burnett to clarify earlier remarks he made to NPR that the poem should apply to migrants “who can stand on their own two feet,” Cuccinelli said the 1883 sonnet was “referring back to people coming from Europe.” Outraged Twitter users noted Lazarus also wrote, “From her beacon-hand, glows world-wide welcome.”

The salmon cannon has been around since 2014, and reduces the fish’s migration — which can take days — to seconds.
