Macaque monkeys to be legal equivalents of Kardashians
A man who claimed at trial that his “evil twin” robbed 10 gas stations, convenience and beer stores in Pennsylvania must spend at least 60 years in prison. Steven Felton, 34, was sentenced to 62 to 124 years on Monday. Lehigh County Judge Kelly Banach said she was offended by Felton’s arrogance. A jury last month convicted Felton in the 10 robberies in the Lehigh Valley, all of which occurred during the fall of 2012. (AP)
A macaque monkey who took selfie photographs, rather than the nature photographer who positioned the camera, should be declared the copyright owner of the photos, PETA contended in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. It seeks a court order allowing PETA to administer all proceeds from the photos for the benefit of the monkey, named Naruto, and other crested macaques living in a reserve on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

personality. It’s big,” Benjamin said. “He’s practicing today in the hallway, waving, giving out blessings. He’s hilarious. He’ll shake your hand. It’s almost like he’s in charge. He’s a very funny and energetic young man.” The children will follow the pope’s schedule as closely as possible, leading the procession out of their hallway through the main entrance where the rest of
the school will be standing with flags. The preschoolers will head to the auditorium where they will watch on screen Pope Francis’ prayer service with the bishops, which will take place at the Cathedral of St. Matthew. Maximiliano will be flanked by eighth-graders Nick Sanders and Patrick Ribas, who will be in red robes dressed as Catholic cardinals and will help “drive” the popemobile along the route. The plan was devised by St. Jude teacher Maura Bayly and teacher aide Eileen Guihen. Since Pope Pius VII, who used a carriage for transportation in the 1800s, popes have employed all sorts of four-wheeled vehicles to travel. Pope Francis has shunned what he calls a “sardine can” design in favor of the opensided Jeep Wrangler. Children are expected to be at the forefront of Pope Francis’ visit, Cardinal Donald Wuerl said. Francis’ visit will conclude with the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia on Saturday and Sunday. SARAH PULLIAM BAILEY (THE WASHINGTON POST)

President Barack Obama and his wife and two daughters greet Pope Francis on Tuesday at Joint Base Andrews.
ANDREW HARNIK (AP)
THE DISTRICT Pope Francis’ chartered Alitalia jet landed at Joint Base Andrews on Tuesday afternoon, with Vatican and American flags flying from the cockpit. The pope alighted from the plane to cheers under cloudy skies and a steady breeze that lifted the black robes of the awaiting bishops and kept the flags rippling on the tarmac. Waiting for Francis on his first visit to the United States: President Barack Obama, who rarely greets arriving foreign dignitaries on the tarmac, where a red carpet had been rolled out just minutes before the plane touched down, slightly ahead of schedule. The president, the first lady, their two daughters and the president’s mother-in-law stood waiting at the bottom of the stairs, where they shook hands with Francis. Their presence spoke to the widespread anticipation of the pope’s six-day, three-city visit to the United States. “Ho ho, hey hey, welcome to the U-S-A,” the crowd chanted as the pontiff held his small, white cap — called a zucchetto — in his hand, perhaps to prevent it from blowing off in the wind. The welcoming party also included U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See Kenneth Hackett, Washington Archbishop Cardinal Donald Wuerl, and Joseph E. Kurtz, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Beyond them, an excited crowd of hundreds — mostly young people — chanted “ole, ole!” and snapped pictures as the pope walked the carpet following a flight from Cuba. Eschewing a limousine, the pope climbed into the back of a small charcoal-gray Fiat and promptly rolled down the

windows, enabling the cheering, whooping crowds to see him as his motorcade took him to the Vatican diplomatic mission in Washington, where he will stay while in the nation’s capital. The choice of car was in keeping with his simple habits and his anticonsumerism message. The president lingered as the
young crowd roared “Thank you Obama! Thank you Obama!” Pope Francis’ Fiat was long gone as the youths reached over the edge of the bleachers to touch the president, filled with residual excitement from watching the pope’s first moments in the United States. The tarmac transformed

Tuesday afternoon into a spiritual shindig as hundreds of children, teens and young adults filled risers and played music, chanted and sang to warm up for the Holy Father’s arrival. Some 1,000 people were expected, but the security lines were long and slow to get in. Security was incredibly tight with all manner of armed military personnel around the small scene. The Vatican selected four children in first, third, fifth and seventh grades from different Catholic schools in the Washington area to greet the pope, and as Color Guard members unfurled a red carpet on the concrete and security dogs sniffed around, the waiting crowd sang along to the 37-member wind ensemble from DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Md. The scene felt like a pep rally as they sang “Louie, Louie” and “Sweet Caroline” and chanted “We love Francis, yes we do”
back and forth between the risers. The pope arrived at the Apostolic Nunciature just before 5 p.m., as hundreds cheered his motorcade, many ignoring police instructions to clear the street as they clamored to get closer to the building where the pope is staying and raising their phones to snap videos. During his visit to the U.S., the pope will meet with the president today, address Congress on Thursday, speak at the United Nations in New York on Friday and take part in a Vatican-sponsored conference on the family in Philadelphia over the weekend. The Argentine known as the “slum pope” for ministering to the downtrodden in his native Buenos Aires is expected to urge America to take better care of the environment and the poor and return to its founding ideals of religious liberty and open arms toward immigrants. Francis, the first Latin American pope, will be sending a powerful message on that front by delivering the vast majority of his speeches in his native Spanish. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)

Md. to launch pot program Applications to grow medical marijuana are being accepted soon MARYLAND Nearly 21/2 years after legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, Maryland is preparing to issue business licenses to dispensaries and cultivation centers — prompting a range of reactions from local elected officials. At one extreme, Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, a Republican, is proposing a ban on cannabis production and shops in the county, which a skeptical state lawmaker likened to a
county-specific Oxycontin prohibition. Elsewhere, Republicans eager to add jobs in their rural communities are embracing potential marijuana businesses. State regulations allow for 94 dispensaries, two per state senate district, and 15 facilities to grow cannabis plants and turn them into medical products, from pills to oil. The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission will start accepting applications this month, which means marijuana that is grown for medicinal purposes should be available for purchase by the end of 2016. Potential applicants are meeting with government officials
across the state, particularly in western and central Maryland, where land is cheaper and more easily available. Prince George’s and Montgomery counties — like most other suburbs — are mulling their options, waiting to see how the burgeoning industry evolves. “It’s a mixed bag,” said Hunter Holliman, a consultant to cannabis businesses and medical marijuana legalization activist. He said it was “unfortunate” that Schuh was “trying to take this ‘Not in my back yard’ stance.” Schuh said the state regulations on who can grow and obtain medical marijuana are so

loose they amount to legalizing recreational marijuana use. The potential consequences for Anne Arundel, he said, include medical cannabis being resold on the street and would-be robbers stalking patients who leave dispensaries carrying as much as $3,000 worth of pot. Elsewhere in the state, politicians have welcomed overtures from out-of-state businesses that want a share of Maryland’s cannabis-growing market. “We view it as an economic development opportunity,” Washington County Commissioner John Barr told the Baltimore Sun.

Va. panel: Alcohol agency should keep arrest powers Task force was created by governor after U-Va. student’s bloody arrest VIRGINIA A task force appointed by Virginia’s governor after a college student’s bloody arrest declined Tuesday to recommend stripping the state’s liquor agency of its police powers. Gov. Terry McAuliffe appointed the 20-member panel after University of Virginia student Martese Johnson was arrested in March by state Alcoholic Beverage Control agents. Johnson, then 20, needed stitches to close a gash in his head. Video and photos of Johnson
being pinned to the sidewalk by ABC agents were widely distributed on social media. Johnson, who is black, could be heard on the video calling the officers racist. Charges against him were dropped, and the Charlottesville prosecutor determined after an investigation that the agents did nothing wrong. Three agents who were assigned to desk duty have since resumed their normal law enforcement activities. The major issue considered by McAuliffe’s task force was whether ABC should be stripped of its arrest powers, leaving its enforcement of underage drinking laws to state or local police. The panel rejected that idea, saying in its report that “the public
safety of Virginia is best served by Virginia ABC.” However, the panel recommended the agency emphasize regulatory activities, such as licensing compliance, over law enforcement. It also recommended eight hours of instruction annually in cultural diversity, effective interaction with youth and “response to active resistance.” The report also recommended that the agency’s roughly 130 law enforcement officers wear body cameras, and that ABC work to improve collaboration with colleges and universities. McAuliffe praised the work of the task force and said he looked forward to reviewing its recommendations. LARRY O’DELL (AP)

In tense vote, EU plans to share 120K refugees Controversial decision likely won’t be enough to solve migrant crisis BRUSSELS At a contentious meeting, European Union ministers agreed Tuesday to relocate 120,000 refugees among the bloc to ease the strains on front-line nations like Greece and Italy, which are being overwhelmed by the continent’s ballooning migrant crisis. But in a sign of deep-rooted divisions among the bloc’s 28 nations, the ministers who often reach decisions by consensus had to put the plan to a vote. And even with Tuesday’s hard-won agreement, the sheer numbers
of migrants already in Europe this year — over 477,900 — shows the need for much greater action down the road to resolve the crisis. Milan Chovanec, the Czech Republic’s interior minister, said four nations — the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Hungary — all voted against the plan and Finland abstained. “[It’s] a bad decision and the Czech Republic did all it could to block it,” Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said. The deal on Tuesday did not set mandatory quotas for each country — one of the most controversial aspects of the proposed plan. But German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere
said his country would take more than 30,000 of the 120,000 people. EU Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans said that “by itself, the decision we took today is not going to solve the refugee crisis.” Now, he said, the EU has to do a better job of protecting its borders, registering migrants who arrive, returning people who are not eligible for asylum and “providing hope and perspective” in conflict-torn countries from which many of the migrants flee. EU leaders will gather in Brussels on Wednesday night to discuss those measures and attempt to adopt a unified approach to the migrant crisis. MIKE CORDER AND
A team of researchers has announced the discovery of a new species of dinosaur found in the Prince Creek Formation of Alaska. The duck-billed dinosaur, called Ugrunaaluk kuukpikensis, was abundant around 70 million years ago. Researchers have already found some 10,000 bones from the species, indicating that it thrived in an area that was — at least for a dinosaur — remarkably cold. The new species is described in a study published Tuesday. At 25 feet long, it looked very similar to a duck-billed dinosaur found in Alberta and Montana. At the time that these dinosaurs lived, their region would have averaged temperatures in the low 40s.
Volkswagen AG’s smog-test scandal escalated Tuesday as the carmaker admitted that 11 million of its diesel vehicles worldwide contain software that evades emissions controls, far more than the 500,000 cars the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said violate the Clean Air Act.

He also warned that profits could be hurt and set aside an initial $7.3 billion to cover the fallout. (AP) DALLAS

Clinton unveils plan to lower drug prices POLITICS Vowing to build upon President Barack Obama’s signature health law, Hillary Clinton is unveiling a sweeping plan to hold down the rising cost of prescription drugs and target pharmaceutical companies that flood airwaves with ads. The Democratic presidential candidate’s proposal would place a monthly cap of $250 on covered out-of-pocket prescription drug costs to help patients with chronic or serious health conditions. It
would also deny tax breaks for televised directto - consumer advertising and require drug companies that Clinton receive taxpayers’ support to invest in research and development. “We will start by capping how much you have to pay out of pocket for prescription drugs each month. And we’re going to hold drug companies accountable as we work to drive down prices,” Clinton said at a campaign event Monday in Louisiana. Clinton was outlining details of her plan Tuesday at a community
forum in Des Moines, Iowa, part of a weeklong push to defend Obama’s health care law. The former secretary of state has credited the overhaul with reducing the number of uninsured Americans and chastised Republicans who have sought its repeal. Once a political liability for Democrats, the law has been credited with helping reduce the number of uninsured people from 48.6 million in 2010 to 29 million in the first three months of 2015. A recent poll by Kaiser Family Foundation found that 72 percent of Americans say the cost of prescription drugs is unreasonable.

With the battle against the Islamic State having lost momentum in Iraq, a new strategy emerges NATIONAL SECURITY With the offensive to reclaim territory from the Islamic State largely stalled in Iraq, the Obama administration is laying plans for a more aggressive military campaign in Syria, where U.S.-backed Kurdish forces have made surprising gains in recent months. The effort, which would begin by increasing pressure on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, marks an important shift in an administration strategy that for most of the past year has prioritized defeating the militant group in Iraq and viewed Syria as a place where there were few real prospects for battlefield success. The White House’s top national security officials met last week and will convene again in the next few days to discuss ways to capitalize on recent and unexpected gains made by Syrian irregular forces. The administration is considering providing arms and ammunition to a wider array of rebel groups in Syria and relaxing vetting standards, effectively deepening America’s involvement in the ongoing civil war. Such a move could lift some of the restrictions that have slowed the Pentagon’s troubled program to train Syrian fighters in Turkey and other sites outside Syria. Rather than subjecting rebels to repeated rounds of screening before and during their training, U.S. officials might restrict vetting to unit leaders already in the fight. “The key thing is getting them some [expletive] bullets,” one U.S. official said. The change is driven partly by frustration with the stalemated fight in Iraq, where an

A U.S. Navy fighter lands Sept. 10 on an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf that’s part of the mission against ISIS extremists.
Iraqi army assault on Ramadi has ground to a halt and a muchanticipated offensive to reclaim Mosul may come only after President Obama leaves office. “We have opportunities now [in Syria] that we didn’t think we would have. We have an opportunity to push down on Raqqa … [and] take away the entire [Turkish] border from ISIS,” said another U.S. official, speaking, like others, on the condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing military operations. The goal is to isolate Raqqa, the seat of ISIS power, and prevent leaders there from sending fighters and resources between Syria and Mosul, the large Iraqi city controlled by the group. Officials are hoping to replicate the success that Syrian forces, led by Kurdish units of the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, had this summer dislodging ISIS from Tal Abyad and other areas close to Syria’s border with Turkey. Officials said the White House may decide to provide weapons
Potential pitfalls PLAYING FOR THE WRONG TEAM:
U.S.-provided weapons could fall into the wrong hands. Increased support for Kurdish militia groups could also alienate Turkish allies. CAN IT MAKE LASTING GAINS?
The Islamic State has been weakened by American airstrikes but remains a potent adversary, able to mount surge offensives, as it did recently in northwest Syria. Even if the U.S.-backed rebels can make gains in Syria, a larger conventional army would be required to push ISIS from its strongholds in Iraq and prevent it from returning. (TWP)
and equipment to the Syrian Arab Coalition — a grouping of several thousand fighters — in the north. The hope is that the group will fight alongside Kurdish forces and push south from the Turkish border toward Raqqa. If approved, the initiative would mark the first time the Pentagon has directly provided U.S. weaponry to armed groups
Hungarian police say a Syrian man held at the border has ties to extremists
within Syria beyond the fighters it has trained in Turkey. Officials stressed that no decisions have been made and that the White House may continue the current approach in Syria, which includes a mix of airstrikes, direct backing for U.S.-trained rebels and indirect support for other forces. Last week, the head of U.S. Central Command said only “four or five” U.S.-trained fighters were actively fighting in Syria. Since then, an additional 71 have completed the training and were sent back into Syria, officials said. U.S. officials are considering preparing a smaller number of soldiers to call in airstrikes by U.S. fighter jets or coordinate ground attacks. Those troops would be inserted into existing units like the Syrian Arab Coalition. The administration also wants to use Turkey’s decision to allow combat flights from Incirlik air base to help it seal off the rest of the Turkey-Syria border.

Most Americans who go to the doctor will get a diagnosis that is wrong or late at least once in their lives, sometimes with terrible consequences, according to a report released Tuesday. This critical type of healthcare error is far more common than medication mistakes or surgery on the wrong patient or body part. But until now, diagnostic errors have been a relatively understudied and unmeasured area of patient safety. Much of patient safety is focused on errors in hospitals, not mistakes in diagnoses that take place in doctors’ offices, surgical centers and other outpatient facilities. The new report by the Institute of Medicine, the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences, outlines a system-wide problem. The report’s authors say they don’t know how many diagnostic errors take place. Some estimates say it affects at least 12 million adults each year. What’s more, errors will likely worsen because of the growing complexity of the diagnostic process and the delivery of health care, according to the committee that conducted the study. Part of the problem, experts say, has been the difficulty of measuring such mistakes. Fixing the problem will require nothing short of a fundamental overhaul of the entire process of how a diagnosis is made, the authors said. LENA H. SUN

Falcons rise into top 10
Backfield’s ‘1-2 punch’ packs power REDSKINS By adding rookie Matt Jones to dependable veteran Alfred Morris, the Redskins have created an unusual two-back rushing attack. With Jones running for 123 yards in Week 2, after Morris gained 121 yards in Week 1, the Redskins are the first NFL team since the 2006 Chargers to have two backs each gain at least 100 yards on the ground in a season’s first two games. “To have that solid, 1-2 punch — and both of those guys are so much alike — keeps the pressure on the defense,” Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said. “It takes a gang to tackle them. It’s priceless, man, to have that type of backfield. It don’t come too often.” The Redskins (1-1) lead the NFL by averaging 171.5 yards rushing per game. On Thursday night, the next team to try to stop
them will be the NFC East rival New York Giants (0-2), whose defense ranked fourth entering Monday by allowing 68 yards per game. In Washington’s 24-10 victory over the Rams on Sunday, Jones carried 19 times and wound up in the end zone twice, on runs of 39 and 3 yards. Morris ran it 18 times for 59 yards. “People a lot of times devalue running backs nowadays,” Morris said. “But we’re just showing that we are still valuable.” In a Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Washington ran for 161 yards, so this marks only the third time since 1950 that the Redskins began a season with two games of at least 150 on the ground. Some teams that rotate runners have a big, drive-it-up-the-gut guy, and then will go to a change-ofpace alternative, often a smaller and perhaps speedier back. Not the Redskins. They have two heavy runners. The 5-foot-10, 224-pound Morris is in his fourth season; he’s gained

Each week, The Washington Post’s national NFL writer, Mark Maske, will provide his rankings of the league’s 32 teams. New England remains on top after its rout of Buffalo, and Atlanta jumped nine spots.

“Coach Callahan has done a great job with that offensive line. It’s Dallas all over again.” RAMS COACH JEFF FISHER, praising
Redskins assistant Bill Callahan, who developed the Cowboys’ line into one of the best last season
at least 1,000 in each of the first three. The 6-foot-2, 231-pound Jones was taken in the third round this year out of Florida. “They both run with a lot of power. They both have some shiftiness to them. They both can
punish the defense. They both deliver contact,” said Williams, part of an offensive line that has successfully opened holes under new assistant coach Bill Callahan. “It’s just a matter of keeping those guys fresh. Keep pounding it; one gets tired, you bring the other one in. Both present a challenge for the defense.” How might that be better than having two runners with different styles? “The advantage is that when one gets tired, you don’t have to change up the offense,” Williams said. “You bring the other one in and they run the same offense, the same plays, just as well as the other one does.” HOWARD FENDRICH (AP)
Number of players remaining on the Redskins’ roster from their 2013 draft after cornerback David Amerson, who was a second-round pick, was released Monday. Just two seasons removed from that draft, only tight end Jordan Reed and running back Chris Thompson are still on the team. There’s one other NFL team that has only two of its draft picks remaining from the 2013 class — the Browns. The Redskins’ coach in 2013, Mike Shanahan, had the final say on each pick.

At 21, Wilson is ready for more responsibility Tom Wilson had a team-high 172 penalty minutes last season.
BRUCE BENNETT (GETTY IMAGES)
CAPITALS Having spent the first two years of his NHL career playing primarily on the Capitals’ fourth line, right wing Tom Wilson is looking forward to an increased role in the season ahead. “I’ve had my first two years in the league, I’m familiar with all of the systems, so I shouldn’t be learning as much as just playing out there,” Wilson said. “It’s going to be big for me to take on added responsibility and play bigger minutes.” Wilson, 21, led the Capitals with 172 penalty minutes last season, and managed just four goals and 17 points in 67 games. He skated an average of 10:56 per game, second lowest on the team among players with at least 15 games played. But management agrees that Washington’s first-round pick (16th overall) from the 2012 draft is ready for a heavier workload. “I think we project him now as the third-line right wing with possibilities of moving up in certain games,” general manager Brian MacLellan said. “I think he can handle it. He seems to have come to camp in good shape. We’re going to work with him and be patient with him and give him some chances to show us what he can do.” In the Capitals’ preseason opener Monday, Wilson played with veterans Jason Chimera and Brooks Laich and scored the game-winning goal in a 2-0 win against Carolina. Last year, Wilson missed all of training camp and the first month of the regular season with a broken ankle, forcing
“Obviously I’ve spent a lot of time in the [penalty] box so I know how it feels to have a good PK bailing you out.” TOM WILSON, who had 104 more penalty minutes than anyone else on the Capitals last season
him to play catch up for much of the season. “You can see in his game that he was chasing it all year,” coach Barry Trotz said. “He just moves way better right now. Last year, the one foot was a little stiff; he didn’t get much power out of it. But now, he’s powering through things, he’s skating [well].” In addition to more evenstrength minutes, Wilson is also expected to see time on the
penalty-killing unit. With the offseason departures of Troy Brouwer, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward, the Capitals lost three of their five most frequently used penalty-killing forwards. “PK can change a game and it will be fun to help the team in that aspect,” Wilson said. While newcomers T.J. Oshie and Justin Williams garner many of the preseason headlines, Trotz has identified Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Andre Burakovsky as young players who must take a step forward to ensure that the Capitals as an organization can do the same. “Willie is ready for it,” Trotz said. “He’s a mature kid who can play this game and get back to being that physical guy that he was drafted to be — physical, hard to handle — and he’s a guy whose minutes need to increase so he can produce.” BEN RABY (FOR EXPRESS)

The Vikings have faced plenty of worthy adversaries in contract negotiations over the years. It should come as no surprise that Ragnar the Viking was one of the most ferocious. The Vikings announced Monday that they have not been able to reach a new contract agreement with Joe Juranitch, the man who played Ragnar for the past 21 years and was looking for quite a raise. Ragnar was asking for $20,000 per game over the next 10 years, according to a person with direct knowledge of the discussions. Based on a home schedule that includes eight games per season, that would be $1.6 million over the life of the contract. A fan favorite since 1994, Ragnar led the Vikings out of the tunnel on his motorcycle during pregame introductions. But when the Vikings hosted the Lions on Sunday in their home opener, Ragnar was nowhere to be found. (AP)

Romo won’t be eligible to return until Nov. 22 The Cowboys have placed Tony Romo on the injured list with a designation to return, sidelining the quarterback for at least seven games after he broke his left collarbone against Philadelphia. Romo will be eligible to return Nov. 22 at Miami. He can practice again in six weeks, starting Nov. 4. Brandon Weeden will start in his place Sunday at home against Atlanta. The Cowboys have opened the season 2-0, with wins over NFC East rivals the Giants and Eagles. Dallas’ two games against the Redskins are Dec. 7 and Jan. 3. (AP/EXPRESS)

No place captures the flavors and handmade freshness of Mexican tacos better. It starts with tortillas rolled daily from masa. Two of these fragrant discs come wrapped around your choice of filling, such as lengua or pineapple-laced al pastor. T.C.
Chef Victor Albisu has created a taco made with tilapia fillets that are beer-battered and fried to a delicate, tempura-like crispiness. The fillets come surrounded by squid-ink aioli, a carrot-and-cayenne-enhanced slaw, a creamy strip of fresh avocado and curls of green onion. T.C.
As the veggie-focused dining trend swells, so do the lines at Chaia. Founders Suzanne Simon and Bettina Stern will soon offer their meat-free tacos year-round: A brickand-mortar store will open this fall in Georgetown. LAVANYA RAMANATHAN
The small local chain serves a soft corn tortilla overflowing with scrambled eggs, green peppers, onions, shredded cheese and black beans. When topped with chorizo for $1 extra, the fold assumes a sloppy and slightly spicy personality, a gentle way to start your day. T.C.

The Source recently introduced a hot pot table. Here’s what you need to know about the East Asian cooking method, which poaches food in steaming broth. Wear the provided bib. With all that sloshing, you’ll want to avoid stains. The broth is cooked for 20 hours before it even graces the table. It’s made from roasted chicken, pork and beef bones, ginger, garlic, chilies and fried shiitake mushrooms. It’s more garlicky than spicy. Steam rising from the pot has a tendency to travel. If you find yourself in a wafty spot, prepare to smell like eau de broth. Have friends with allergies? You may want to leave them out: It’s impossible to prevent cross-contamination.

entertainment CHART CHAMPIONS
Bieber and 1D may go to war over fangirls
Gabourey Sidibe, left, and Terrence Howard are back for more intense stares and dramatic pauses on “Empire.”
Gabourey Sidibe is in an ‘Empire’ state of mind The actress dishes about what’s ahead on the soapy drama TELEVISION Gabourey Sidibe, who plays Empire Entertainment’s Becky Williams, totally gets why fans adore Fox’s “Empire,” returning at 9 tonight. She loves watching it as much as making it. “The story line is so enticing and it keeps you guessing. It’s the drama of it all. And the music is amazing,” said Sidibe. Plus: “Everyone on the show is extremely beautiful or extremely handsome, so there are quite a few things that keep you coming.” This season holds more overthe-top drama for all connected with Empire, the music and
entertainment company built by Lucious Lyon and his exwife, Cookie (Terrence Howard and Emmy-nominated Taraji P. Henson). Their three sons are fighting for a share of the Lyon dream, as each sees it. While an ALS misdiagnosis is no longer hanging over Lucious’ head, a prosecutor is intent on bringing down the former drug dealer and gets him jailed without bail. Cookie makes a public show of helping him while trying to finalize a hostile takeover of Empire Entertainment. For Sidibe’s character, the season promises more visibility. Becky has a promotion and, with the arrival of new character JPoppa (Mo McRae of “Sons of Anarchy”), a chance for love. “ My fi rst soap opera
romance,” said Sidibe, 32, who earned fame and an Oscar nomination for her debut project, “Precious,” the acclaimed 2009 film about an abused, illiterate young woman. She says she’s since learned to face her fears in the industry. “I’ve learned that fear is not useful,” she said. “I’m surprised how many things I’ve bumped into over the last eight years that scared me to death and that, when I actually came across them, I didn’t even feel it.” Now, as Becky, she faces even more changes. “She now has more power than she ever had,” Sidibe said. “She’s not serving someone, she’s not taking phone calls or making appointments for other people. So it’s really fun.” LYNN ELBER (AP)
One Direction on Tuesday announced that their fifth studio album, “Made in the A.M.,” will hit shelves Nov. 13. That date could spark an all-out war among fangirls, as Justin Bieber’s long-awaited new album has been rumored to be released the same day. Bieber’s team has not confirmed that date. Each of One Direction’s previous four albums has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while Bieber has five No. 1 albums to his name. One Direction’s new album will include its hit “Drag Me Down,” and Bieber’s is expected to include his single “What Do You Mean?”(EXPRESS)

and senator Ted Cruz, who criticized the Supreme Court’s recent decision on gay marriage
Entertainment Weekly: Amy Schumer lands book deal for undisclosed sum “in the high seven figures”
Ryan Adams liked ‘1989,’ so he made it again MUSIC This week, Ryan Adams has a new album out — sort of. The musician covered Taylor Swift’s entire “1989” album from top to bottom, turning her pop hits into melancholy rock jams. “It’s actually incredibly humbling to find a connection with someone else’s words and someone else’s songs and to open yourself up and to feel them fully, and find out where those stories take you,” Adams, 40, said. “It felt no less genuine than any song I’ve ever written.” Since its release last October, Swift’s album has sold 5.2 million units and launched multiple hits, including “Shake It Off,” ‘’Blank Space” and “Bad Blood.” Adams’ interpretation of “1989” offers a slowed-down take on her upbeat anthems. “I got to work different parts of my brain, different parts of my heart and different parts of the musical aspects of my personality,” Adams said. “It’s not the same record.” After completing his version, the singer-songwriter-producer played it for Swift before taking it any further. Like Swift, Adams says he was inspired by the year their albums are named for. He calls Bob Mould one of his favorite musicians and has worked on albums for Jenny Lewis and Willie Nelson, but adds, “I also love all those songs on [Swift’s] ‘Fearless’ [album]. I don’t really have a place where my music begins and ends.” MESFIN FEKADU (AP)

“Good. What an unnecessary drama …” @LEWISKING is relieved to see
the long and arduous saga of the Peace app come to an end. Last week, the creator of the popular ad-blocking app abruptly pulled it from the App Store after having a change of heart on the technology. In a rare move, Apple is refunding the $3 people paid for the app to the tens of thousands who downloaded it.
“Got full marks on my Uber rating! Who’s wasting their potential now, mom?” @THEJOLLYJAMMER is excited to learn her Uber rating after Mashable on Monday revealed an easy way to discover it. As many users of the ride-hailing app already know, it isn’t just that passengers get to rate drivers — it also works the other way around. Curious about your rating? Within the Uber app, click the Profile section. From there, select Help, then Account. Simply choose “I’d like to know my rating,”and an Uber representative will email it to you within a few hours.
“Now that Oyster is officially dead, can we all just admit that the real ‘Netflix for books’ is the LIBRARY?”
“Make renewal deals like this and I bet they would see a huge surge in business on those days. I’d gladly do it.”
reacts to a one-day deal from Amazon that will make its Prime subscription available for $67. Usually, the yearlong service costs $99, but in celebration of Emmy wins for Amazon Original series at the 67th Primetime Emmys (see where that price tag comes from?), the service is offering Prime at a discount on Friday.
why Oyster, the e-book subscription service, is shutting down. The service, which offered unlimited access to more than a million titles for $9.95 a month, announced its demise Tuesday. Most of its staff will join Google.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Something new is pulling you in a direction that may prove dangerous to you before long. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Involve others in your decision-making process, and you’ll earn their trust and inspire their loyalty. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’re likely to take on a formidable adversary before the day is out. Trust your instincts — and one of your favorite strategies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Confidence will wax and wane throughout the day, but you know that you’ll be sitting pretty in the end, because a friend tells you so! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your usual way of going about your business may be interrupted or prevented outright. If so, you’ll have to get creative!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The problem you face cannot be solved with stubbornness, nor by turning a blind eye to it. You must address it directly! ARIES (March 21-April 19) You must be sure that your motives are pure, and you must be willing to persuade others they’re in good hands.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You know what really counts, and you’re ready and willing to go to bat for someone who is in need of what you have to offer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll make a prediction that doesn’t sit well with others, but time and circumstances are on your side.

Just call her Susan of Arc, or something
The Devil Sings ‘Vogue’ A source told the New York Post that Madonna has an unusual punishment when her underlings mess up. When a backup dancer recently showed up late to rehearsal, Madonna told him, “You have to kiss my foot,” the source said. The dancer obliged. The source added that Madonna hates to see half-empty water bottles in the studio, so before she arrives, “Everyone scurries to pick up their bottles and toss them. Then, the lighting is adjusted, and everyone gets really quiet for her entrance.” (EXPRESS)
Susan Sarandon is very concerned for the pope’s safety as he visits the U.S. this week. “I think they’re going to assassinate him,” she told the New York Daily News. “I think he’s done some major, major cleansing of the whole system.” Sarandon was referring to Pope Francis’ liberal stances on social issues, which have endeared him to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. “I love this pope,” she told the Daily News. “He’s humble. ... I think he’s a pope of the people.” Sarandon hasn’t always been such a fan of the papacy, having infamously called Pope Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, a “Nazi” in 2011. (EXPRESS)
Sean Penn files defamation suit against Lee Daniels
Have fun filming your comedy together, exes!
Sean Penn has filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against “Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels over comments Daniels made about him in The Hollywood Reporter. The lawsuit says Daniels unfairly compared Penn to Terrence Howard, who has been repeatedly accused of domestic violence. In 1989, Penn was alleged to have assaulted his then-wife, Madonna. (AP)
Will Forte and January Jones have broken up, Us Weekly reported. The two dated for roughly five months, having met on the set of their Fox comedy “The Last Man on Earth,” and split last month. They attended the Emmys on Sunday separately. Neither has commented on the news, but a source told Us that Jones was not looking for anything serious, and that she thinks “relationships are a pain in the ass.” (EXPRESS)
