In defense of Defender

VOCABULARY

‘pocket park’ DEFINITION: A small, often oddly shaped chunk of public land. ONE EXAMPLE: D.C. has proposed converting a concrete island, below, north of Dupont Circle into a pocket park. It would feature kinetic pavers to power the park’s lights.

So this is a luggage tag with a pouch that

A new report from Allstate ranks D.C. 198th of 200 cities in accident-proneness of its drivers, up from dead last in 2013. Boston (199) and Worcester, Mass. (200) weren’t included in 2013, so probably nothing’s changed.

After a second raucous hearing, the council voted Monday to strike the ban from the books. Time to break out the Ouija board.

THE DISTRICT The queen of the plains has spindly legs beneath her 500-pound bulk that belie her ability to run faster than a horse. She can also swim, and use her head as a snow plow. The female American Bison, newly arrived at the Smithsonian National Zoo, also has the dark face, beard and short horns that have made her a symbol of the vastness, and at one time the folly, of the country. A giant panda with a Popsicle she is not. On Saturday, as part of its

yearlong 125th anniversary celebration, the zoo plans to debut its two new female bison — the first the zoo has had on exhibit in more than a decade, and the animal on which the zoo was founded. They were donated in July by the American Prairie Reserve, a 305,000-acre tract near the socalled Missouri River “breaks” in eastern Montana. In D.C., the zoo has constructed a small but lush pasture for the animals. Technically, they are “bison,” the largest land animal in North America. “Buffalo” live only in Africa, the zoo said, but both

Baltimore’s Horseshoe Casino set to open its doors

One arrested, one at large in McDonald’s shooting

D.C. Council member and mayoral candidate Muriel Bowser said she opposes the new school boundaries plan that Mayor Vincent Gray adopted last week and said the process should be restarted under the next mayor. “The Mayor’s plan on school boundary changes is not ready,” she said in a statement. On Monday, at-large Council member David Catania, who is also running for mayor as an independent, issued a statement saying he would seek to delay implementation of the plan for one year. It is the first comprehensive overhaul of D.C.’s school boundaries in more than 40 years. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

The Horseshoe Casino Baltimore was set to open Tuesday night, marking a new milestone in Maryland’s development of casino gambling. It is the fifth and last of the five casinos initially planned when lawmakers approved slot machine gambling in a 2007 special session, a plan later approved by voters in a statewide vote in 2008. The Baltimore casino will be home to 2,500 slot machines and 122 table games. A sixth casino located at National Harbor in Prince George’s County,Md., was approved in a 2012 special session, when lawmakers also allowed table games It is on track for a 2016 opening. (AP)

After a 21-hour manhunt, Prince William Police caught a Woodbridge, Va., man wanted for allegedly shooting a man in the face in a McDonald’s parking lot. A second suspect — accused of arranging to meet the victim in the parking lot and then showing up with the gunman — remains at large. A police spokesman said that woman who has not been apprehended is not considered dangerous. The man caught on Tuesday afternoon, DeWayne Williams, 28, was the subject of a lengthy manhunt in several locations in the Woodbridge area, starting after the shooting at about 6:50 p.m. (TWP)

Look, D.C., no hands! A driverless car takes a visit to the capital, and The Washington Post hitches a ride

Drivers not required

THE DISTRICT The little car is tootling around — pretty much on its own — when a police officer bolts into the road ahead of it, almost within spitting distance of the Capitol dome. What is the cop waving about? Hard to say. The driverless car is being controlled by computers, and wild waving is a bit too complicated for them to understand. Jarrod Snider taps a button on the center console and puts his hands on the steering wheel. “Autonomous ready,” the computer says a fraction of a second later, eager to take control again. Swing a stick on the Mall and you’ll hit a dozen skeptics who doubt that the streets will ever be filled with driverless car. But the doubters may witness that transformation sooner than they think. The ability of the vehicle cruising unnoticed among the tourists and important people in pinstripes would shock most of them. A ride in it also points to a few chinks in its armor. Computers, for example, can see the police officer bustling into traffic, but they can’t figure out why he is doing it — neither can the people riding in the car. It turns out the officer wants to wave off another driver who was making an improper turn. Could the car have handled it without Snider’s help? “Yeah, it started to slow down before I took over,” he says. Right now, put the silver Cadillac SUV — converted to autonomous driving by Carnegie Mellon University — on an interstate and its developers say it could drive you to San Francisco, though it would need help at gas stations.

The most cost-effective type of sensor. Camera data is very good for detecting the texture and color of lane markings, signs and traffic lights.

The Carnegie Mellon autonomous car uses three types of sensors to make decisions on the perception of the surrounding environment. The sensors process static and dynamic obstacles and use GPS data to determine the car’s position and plot an optimal route to a destination. Cameras

Lidar A laser-based sensor that can accurately detect the shapes of cars, pedestrians, curbs, undrivable areas and other structures.

Radar

CPU

Detects obstacles’ positions and speeds. Radar outputs are usually not informative enough to estimate obstacle shape.

Four computer cores installed in the car’s trunk analyze the data from sensors. The computer takes control of the car when the driver activates a switch.

5 things to know about driverless cars How much will they cost? Right now, the technology alone adds $70,000 to $100,000 to the cost of a vehicle. Automakers are wrestling to make it affordable, and there are projections that by the time they go into mass production, the additional cost might fall to between $3,000 and $5,000.

1

Are autonomous cars and connected cars the same thing? No. An autonomous car uses onboard technology to find its way around and keep from running into things. Connected cars, a concept also in active development, provide direct short-range communication between vehicles (and highway beacons) to help them coexist better.

2

3

Will a car with no hands on the wheel be safer? Yes, experts say. Driver error causes the overwhelming majority of crashes — 93 percent of them, according to one federal report. Just getting intoxicated drivers from behind the wheel could reduce fatalities by 39 percent. SOURCE: CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY. GRAPHIC: THE WASHINGTON POST

D.C. Council holds hearing on controversial CSX tunnel project

LINDA DAVIDSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

But in D.C.? The streets are full of cars driven by impatient locals and bewildered tourists. Pedestrians talking on cellphones, cabs darting across lanes, bicyclists by the dozens, out-of-state tour buses. “This area is pretty difficult,” Snider says. “We think it’s doing a pretty good job. ” The computers are back in command as the car nears Independence Avenue, signals its intent to turn right and then waits for the light to change. The bus in the right lane is the next challenge. “Changing lanes,” the computer announces, moving to get around it. The bus driver apparently doesn’t like that. “We’re trying to pass him, but then he cut us off,” Snider says.

4

The autonomous car’s center panel has an emergency stop button but for the most part looks like the normal panel.

If she is upset — and the firm but melodious voice of the vehicle unquestionably belongs to a woman — she doesn’t let on. After the car takes the onramp to Interstate 395 south, the computers accelerate to 50 mph as it crosses the bridge into Virginia, surrounded by other cars. “It’s determining how fast to drive based on the curvature of the road, based on the other cars in front of it,” Snider says. The car zips off I-395, takes a right in front of the Pentagon and then neatly merges back onto I-395 headed north. Over the bridge, it will peel off the freeway back into D.C. traffic and complete an uneventful trip. ASHLEY HALSEY III (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Rockville teen among 4 dead in Ohio plane crash

So when are they coming? They won’t arrive in your driveway with a “big bang,” says Raj Rajkumar, director of Carnegie Mellon University’s autonomous-car project. Anti-lock brakes and cruise control were the first steps. The next one — within three to five years — will be a highway pilot feature, he says. Put the car in the lane, tell it to go to San Francisco and it will. A year or two later, highway “plus-plus” will arrive, allowing it to weave around the slowpokes, as will the capability to take over in traffic jams. Rajkumar says a totally driverless version will happen in the 2020s. “The whole process will be incremental.”

Won’t this take a massive rewrite of traffic laws? You bet it will. Driving is the most complicated and regulated thing most people do. (TWP)

According to an attorney for an unidentified man who lives in an apartment building near the site of the shooting, the recording captures as many as 11 shots fired in the Aug. 9 incident. The audio, which was played on CNN on Monday night, could not immediately be verified. But a burst of gunfire can be heard (six shots), followed by a pause, and then several more shots (at least four).

A Palestinian family in Gaza celebrates the announcement of an open-ended cease-fire Tuesday with Israel.

Cease-fire appears to end war in Gaza Strip After 50 days of bloodshed, agreement between Israel and Hamas restores pre-conflict status quo GAZA CITY, GAZA STRIP Palestinians in the Gaza Strip poured into the streets Tuesday to celebrate the announcement that Hamas and Israel have agreed to an open-ended ceasefire after 50 days of warfare that has killed more than 2,200 people — most of them Palestinians. “ We h ave won,” H a mas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said. He said the militant group’s armed wing had accomplished “what no Arab army has done. We have defeated them.” His exuberance aside, officials from Hamas and another militant group, Islamic Jihad, said the cease-fire agreement

essentially brings Israel and Palestinians back to terms agreed upon in the truce signed after the 2012 Gaza war. Israel also agreed to immediately ease restrictions and allow relief aid and construction materials to enter the coastal enclave. The deal will also allow Gaza fishermen to venture six miles offshore; until now, they had been restricted to three miles. Other demands by the Palestinians — the building of a seaport and airport and opening all the border crossings — are set to be discussed later in Cairo. Israel will also press its demand that Gaza be demilitarized.

$670M

The cease-fire deal was modest, leaving big questions about who will control the Gaza Strip to be dealt with later. Community leaders from Israeli farm towns bordering the Gaza Strip — those who have come under the greatest amount of rocket fire from the strip, especially over the past few days — were skeptical about the cease-fire, telling Israeli news channels that only time would tell whether the deal was for real. “The leaders on both sides will probably each declare victory while the people on each side do not feel like they are victors at all,” said Miri Eisin, former army colonel who served as the deputy head of the combat intelligence corps.

The border of unease WASHINGTONPOST.COM WONKBLOG

Why Burger King wants to be Canadian Yet another American company is aiming to move its headquarters out of the country. International fast food behemoth Burger King Worldwide Inc. confirmed Tuesday that it will pay about $11 billion to buy Tim Hortons Inc., the Canadian equivalent of Dunkin’ Donuts. It would also move the new company’s headquarters to Canada, where corporate taxes are lower. The nominal corporate tax rate in the U.S., which combines national, state, and city-level tax rates, is nearly 40 percent. Canada’s, by comparison, is just over 26 percent. Burger King would hardly be the first large American corporation to move its headquarters — more than 70 U.S. companies have reincorporated overseas since the early 1980s, and more than half of those have come since 2003. The increasing popularity of what are known as tax inversions has prompted discussions about how to close — or at the very least thwart — the sort of loopholes that allow tax flight in the first place. “We don’t want to see this trend grow,” President Barack Obama said at a news conference earlier this month. As one of the most visible companies to move overseas, Burger King stands to be more significantly impacted if there is any public backlash. ROBERTO A. FERDMAN

KIEV, UKRAINE Ukraine said Tuesday its forces detained a group of Russian paratroopers who crossed the border into eastern Ukraine, raising tensions between the two countries as their presidents attended a regional summit. Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said Tuesday that the Ukrainian army detained 10 Russian paratroopers in the Donetsk region, scene of some of the heaviest fighting with separatist rebels in the east. In Moscow, news agencies quoted a Russian defense official as saying the soldiers had crossed the border by accident and surrendered to Ukrainian forces without attempting to resist. The incident came a day after Ukraine accused Russian forces of carrying out a cross-border foray into southeastern Ukraine with tanks and armored personnel carriers. The U. S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, said in a Twitter posting late Monday: “The new columns of Russian tanks and armor crossing into Ukraine indicates a Russiandirected counteroffensive may be underway.” White House national security adviser Susan Rice tweeted that the incursions “represent significant escalation.” Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President

Ukraine finds Russian paratroopers in its territory. Moscow says it was an accident.

Photos released by Ukrainian security service purportedly show Russian paratroopers captured inside Ukraine.

Petro Poroshenko, along with other European leaders, attended a summit Tuesday in Minsk, Belarus. The summit was set to talk about free-trade issues between the two countries, but it likely will be consumed by the 5-month-old conflict, which has left some 2,000 people dead. The summit presented an opportunity for Putin and Poroshenko to hold their first

face-to-face meeting since June. It appeared doubtful, however, that any headway toward a peace agreement would be made, and the alleged Russian incursion into southeastern Ukraine — which Moscow denied — showed how difficult it will be for Ukraine to re-establish control over its own territory.

The Global Hawk unmanned aircraft could be sent to gather information about the Islamic State, but risks being shot down by the Syrian air force.

Surveillance over Syria Obama wants to use aircraft to learn about the Islamic State, but it won’t be easy WASHINGTON With U.S. airstrikes in Iraq continuing, President Barack Obama has authorized surveillance flights into Syria in an effort to gather intelligence on Islamic State forces. The move marks an escalation against the radical Islamist group, and some observers have suggested that the flights are a precursor to airstrikes like those being carried out across the border in northern Iraq. But sending surveillance flights into Syria would be complicated and potentially dangerous for both manned and unmanned aircraft. Any U.S. aircraft in Syria could be seen by the government of President Bashar Assad as a threat, in part because they could gather valuable intelligence on his forces. Syria’s foreign minister, Walid al-Moualem, has already signaled that Damascus would not tolerate unilateral U.S. strikes against the extremists. Drones such as Predators,

Reapers and even the high-flying Global Hawk could be easily shot down by both the Syrian air force and the country’s air defense grid, according to a former drone operator. While the U.S. military has penetrated Syrian airspace on at least one occasion over the past year — during the failed bid to rescue journalist James Foley and other Americans being held by the Islamic State — that raid involved the use of modified Black Hawk helicopters. The helicopters are designed to fly into hostile air space and conceivably could have been flown at very low altitudes to avoid radar detection. Surveillance aircraft, however, operate high and slow. “These aircraft are not built to go into denied airspace,” the pilot said, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity surrounding his former employment. “If the Syrians wanted to send up a MiG 23 and shoot down a Predator, they could easily do it.”

Poll: Brazil President Dilma Rouseff in danger of losing election

Third hostage is an American woman The Islamic State militant group is holding hostage a young American woman who was doing humanitarian aid work in Syria, a family representative said Tuesday. The 26-year-old, who was captured last year, is the third American known to have been kidnapped by the militant group. A representative for the family and U.S. officials asked that the woman not be identified out of fear for her safety. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the issue publicly. (AP)

In addition to fielding a moderately capable air force, Syria possesses advanced surfaceto-air missile systems like the SA-22 Greyhound, according to Military Balance, a publication that documents foreign military capabilities. The SA-22 can hit targets up

to 65,000 feet, which — coincidentally — is believed to be the maximum altitude of the Global Hawk. Other high-flying U.S. military assets include the RQ180, a stealth drone that could avoid radar-guided surfaceto-air systems, and the U2 spy plane, which flies well above 70,000 feet. But those aircraft are usually used to monitor larger targets and could have a difficult time tracking small groups of militants, particularly if they are intermingled with the civilian population. That doesn’t mean U.S. forces aren’t trying. The former pilot speculated that any U.S. aircraft that successfully made it into Syria would be given a number of tasks to gather intelligence about the Islamic State. “If they wanted to do strikes, they could do it right now,” the former pilot said. “But I think they’re trying to get a sense of how powerful ISIS is.” THOMAS GIBBONS-NEFF (THE WASHINGTON POST)

RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU

A shaky psyche: RGIII in need of a confidence boost Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III needs to exhale. One long, deep breath that dispels demons while giving him time to find solutions. The passer’s biggest concern isn’t the latest drama of whether he should be benched for Kirk Cousins or that he can’t slide, shouldn’t tweet, does too many commercials or can’t get along with coaches or teammates. Those are the small things that will forever be present for the quarterback, who is now over a year and a half removed from his last knee surgery.

The overall and omnipresent noise is what has been distracting Griffin. After troublesome performances, he pledges “We’ll get it fixed.” But his play hasn’t improved since coach Mike Shanahan’s dismissal. Tossing away the knee brace hasn’t helped, either, and he’s not been impressive in a new offense that relies more on him. Instead, he’s had a thousand-mile stare at the line of scrimmage. If Griffin doesn’t regain his true inner confidence, the Redskins are going to struggle to win games. Griffin’s smiling public persona portrays self-assurance, but he needs

to hear that inner voice that knows he can dominate like he did during his 2012 rookie campaign. Griffin needs to breathe deep and just go play. “It’s a little bit of everything,” coach Jay Gruden said. “[Hesitating] could be a function of him not trusting the coverage, not trusting his footwork, but that’s something that he’s got to get out of. … He’s got to let some things fly.” Griffin isn’t the only Redskins player having an identity crisis. Despite the addition of DeSean Jackson to a strong receiving corps, Gruden says the Redskins may be a running team. No wonder Griffin is floundering in trying to find a

duality in purpose. “I think our identity has to be diversity and we have got to be able to be good at both,” Gruden said. “We need to be pretty good at everything, but obviously the strength of our football team at this moment would be — I would say — our running game.” To adjust, Griffin must silence the noise around him. He needs to trust his skills and not overthink things. “He’s got to do it — he’s got to continue to do it,” Gruden said. “You know, he’s in his third year, like I said, and some of these route combinations are new to him. He’s got to trust the fact that he’s got to believe what he sees, but he’s got to see it first. … He’s got the ability to do it, he’s got the smarts to do it, he’s got the wants to do it. Just got to do it.” Sort of sounds like a Nike commercial.

Sarkisian: USC looking into Shaw’s heroic story

USC coach Steve Sarkisian says the school is investigating defensive back Josh Shaw’s story that he injured both of his ankles jumping off a balcony to save his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian said USC has received calls contradicting Shaw’s detailed claims about his two high ankle sprains. Shaw’s story was told in a detailed post on the Trojans’ website Monday. “Josh is adamant with what occurred,” Sarkisian said, “and we’ll continue to vet some of the other stories that have come across our desk or across our phones, and see where we can go from there.” (AP)

But in the Wimbledon title match, she was swept away by Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-0, and things didn’t go much better in her three hard-court tuneups for the U.S. Open where Bouchard won just one of her four matches.

Love can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next summer, but the 25-year-old said he intends to stay with James and the Cavaliers. “I’m committed to this team, committed long term to the end goal and that’s to win championships,” he said. Love was introduced Tuesday by the Cavaliers, who acquired him in a blockbuster, three-team trade that instantly turned Cleveland into an NBA championship favorite. (AP)

Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa, right, hit a pinch-hit home run in Sunday’s win over the Giants.

Espinosa staying ready despite diminished role NATIONALS Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa has spent much of this season in the batting cages, trying to simulate pitches at game speed. This is because opportunities at the plate have diminished for the 27-year-old, whose hitting has been off track for almost two seasons. Despite everything Espinosa offers defensively, his struggles at the plate have earned him a spot on the bench. But he still has to prepare as if he’s a starter, just in case he’s called upon. Coming off the bench in Sunday’s 14-6 win over the Giants, Espinosa, a switch-hitter

who entered Tuesday’s game batting .217, crushed a pitch from the left side of the plate for his eighth home run of the season. “My role this year has been when guys get hurt to get in there,” Espinosa said. “If not, keep your head up, keep grinding, keep doing what you can to maintain your swing and game speed.” Espinosa has some extreme splits this year. Before Tuesday’s game, he hit .298 batting right-handed against left-handed pitchers. But as a lefty facing right-handers, his average was a dismal .181. When Ryan Zimmerman injured his hamstring in July,

the Nationals made a deal with Cleveland to bring in infielder Asdrubal Cabrera. The move essentially guaranteed that Espinosa would stay on the bench and could eliminate almost any meaningful playing time for him this season once Zimmerman is cleared to return. “I’ve been working on my swing a lot in the cages. I’ve been feeling good and sticking to my routine,” Espinosa said. “Obviously, with Asdrubal doing well for us, [I’m] not going to get the at-bats. But I’ll continue to work and hopefully it will play out as I get a couple more at-bats.” JASON BUTT (EXPRESS)

Young Jeezy arrested on suspicion of firearms

Bob Dylan will release ‘The Basement Tapes’

Rapper Young Jeezy has been arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal firearms during an investigation into a shooting at a concert Jeezy co-headlined with Wiz Khalifa in Silicon Valley, Calif., on Friday. The arrests come after a man was shot and killed backstage. Jeezy has not been identified as a suspect. (AP)

On “My Everything,” Ariana Grande branches into dance and R&B sounds.

Grande’s album is a stellar pop piece RATINGS

15.6M

The number of people who watched Monday’s Emmy Awards on NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show’s ratings dipped 10 percent from last year, which, at 17.6 million, marked an eight-year high. This year’s show, hosted by Seth Meyers, likely suffered because it wasn’t aired on a Sunday. (EXPRESS)

ALBUM REVIEW This is how you follow up an impressive debut: Step into the recording booth and do it all again. Maybe it’s easier said than done, but Ariana Grande manages to pull off the feat with her sophomore release, “My Everything,” the successor to last year’s nearperfect “Yours Truly.” Admittedly, Grande’s sophomore effort doesn’t go in a radically different direction (she was on the right path to begin with). Collaborations with rappers, including Big Sean, A$AP Ferg as well as Iggy Azalea on the successful single “Problem,” might tempt critics to accuse Grande

of relying on old formulas. But she shows growth, busting out of familiar genres and exploring electronic dance music on second single “Break Free” and again on “One Last Time.” “Break Your Heart Right Back” showcases Grande’s R&B and soul sensibilities as it samples Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out.” Featured guest Childish Gambino repurposes bars from Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems” for the track. Sure, “My Everything” is a safe bet — but in the best of ways. The 21-year-old Grande has a fantastic voice, and she has found the music to showcase that. MELANIE J. SIMS (AP)

MICHAEL KUHNE AT ACCUWEATHER.COM points out that while this lobster is rare, its hue — caused by an abundance of a certain protein — is no anomaly. The crustacean was caught Saturday by 14-year-old Meghan LaPlante and her father, Jay, off Maine’s coast. The LaPlantes donated the lobster, which Meghan named Skyler, to the Maine State Aquarium.

“Oprah: You get some water! You get some water! Everybody gets a truck of water! Jk, just her” @KELMEJ reacts to a report from Politico that the celebrity has been importing truckfuls of water from other places to sustain the upkeep of her 40-acre estate in Montecito, Calif., as the state still suffers what the federal government deems “exceptional drought” conditions.

“Dear Academy President: Sofia Vergara is not a prize from the Price Is Right.” @JANETMOCK found Monday night’s Emmy Awards skit featuring the “Modern Family” actress and Television Academy of Arts and Sciences CEO Bruce Rosenblaum quite sexist. Vergara rotated on a pedestal as an example of “a terrific year for American Television,” as Rosenblaum said. The actress later told Entertainment Weekly she thought it was the opposite of sexist. “It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself,” she said.
