Apple Visionary Steve Jobs Dies
Former CEO leaves a legacy of innovation and showmanship

The step, published in the journal Nature, marks a long-sought, potentially pivotal advance toward the goal of creating genetically matched embryonic stem cells that could treat many major diseases.

Steve Jobs, the Apple founder and former CEO who invented and masterfully marketed ever-sleeker gadgets that transformed everyday technology, from the personal computer to the iPod and iPhone, has died. He was 56. Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause. “We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” the company said in a brief statement. Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve”
Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs stepped down from the company in August, saying he could no longer handle the job. He then took a role as chairman with the company.
Jobs had battled cancer in 2004 and underwent a liver transplant in 2009 after taking a leave of absence for unspecified health problems. He took another leave of absence in January — his third since his
health problems began — before resigning as CEO six weeks ago. Jobs became Apple’s chairman and handed the CEO job over to his hand-picked successor, Tim Cook. (AP)
Palin Not Running for President MWi^_d]jed After months of speculation, former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin announced that she will not pursue the GOP nomination for the 2012 presidential race. Palin made the announcement in a letter to supporters Wednesday. “I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office,” she said. “We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the fundamental transformation” of our nation. Some conservatives had held out hope that the former Alaska governor would run, but it was

an increasingly small group. In a recent Washington Post-ABC poll, just more than three in 10 Republicans and Republican-leaning inde-
pendents had said they wanted her to pursue the presidency. Palin told conservative radio talk-show host Mark Levin on Wednesday that she would not consider being a third-party candidate for president because that would assure Obama’s reelection. “This is virtually a win-win decision for her,” said Tracey Schmitt, a Republican strategist. “By keeping her powder dry for whatever the future holds, she is preserving her power of celebrity.” Along with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s decision on Tuesday to stay out of the race, Palin’s announcement virtually ensures that the GOP presidential field set. (E XPRESS/ THE WASHINGTON POST )

YOU + JHU Keep threats at bay a world away Onsite Open House
Struggling to deliver the big jobs package proposed by President Obama, Senate Democrats are using the issue to force Republican senators to vote on tax increases for millionaires, picking up on a White House theme that the nation’s wealthiest Americans aren’t paying their fair share. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Wednesday he is changing Obama’s jobs package to add a 5 percent tax on income above $1 million, a proposal that is sure to be blocked by Republicans. The $447 billion package still includes Obama’s proposals to cut payroll taxes and provide money for teachers, firefighters, the unemployed and infrastructure. The tax on millionaires is expected to pay for the package, so it wouldn’t add to the budget deficit.
Ijeff[Z8[\eh[?jÊiIjWhj[Z5 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he plans to bring the bill up for a vote in the Senate next week, though without Republican support, it won’t get the 60 votes needed to advance. GOP leaders said they won’t support tax increases, even on the wealthy, because they would hurt an already weak economy. The new 5 percent tax would be applied to adjusted gross income of more than $1 million — that’s income before itemized deductions are subtracted. (AP)
Democrats are banking on Republicans to oppose both the higher taxes on million-dollar earners and the president’s call for new spending aimed at reducing joblessness, leaving them open to a charge of protecting the wealthy at the expense of the unemployed. “Republicans will be hardpressed to explain why t hey allowed teachers and firefighters to be laid off, rather than have
millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. A Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week said 75 percent of respondents supported raising taxes on Americans with incomes of more than $1 million per year. That same poll found that 52 percent of respondents supported Obama’s jobs package, and 36 percent opposed it. STEPHEN OHLEMACHER (AP)

Military Defectors Unite in Syria Armed movement is gathering support, opposition says 8[_hkj A group of military defectors known as the Free Syrian Army is emerging as the first armed challenge to President Bashar Assad’s regime after seven months of largely nonviolent resistance.

While analysts said those num-

ritorial foothold, the defections are unlikely to pose a real threat to the unity of the Syrian army. International intervention, such as the NATO action in Libya that helped topple Moammar Gadhafi, is all but out of the question in Syria. Washington and its allies have shown little appetite for intervening in another Arab nation. “The Libyan model is looking increasingly attractive to the Syrian opposition,” said Shadi Hamid, director of research at the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar. But he called the dissident army a “highrisk, high-reward situation.” The Syrian opposition has welcomed the Free Syrian Army, but it is unclear how much command the group has on the ground. (AP)

Germany Renews Nazi War-Crimes Inquiries Officials: Watershed ruling in May allows for hundreds of cases 8[hb_d Nearly seven decades after the end of World War II, German authorities have reopened hundreds of dormant investigations of Nazi death camp guards in an eleventh-hour attempt that could result in at least dozens of new prosecutions, The Associated Press has learned. Special Nazi war-crimes investigators reopened the files after the conviction of former Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk, whose
8WYaijeho John Demjanjuk, now 91, was deported from the U.S. to Germany in 2009 to stand trial for serving as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. He was convicted in May of 28,060 counts of accessory to murder and sentenced to five years in prison. It was the first time prosecutors were able to convict someone in a Nazi-era case without direct evidence that the suspect participated in a specific killing. Demjanjuk is free and living in Germany as he appeals. (AP)
case set a new legal precedent in Germany, said Kurt Schrimm, the prosecutor who heads the unit. Given the advanced ages of all of the suspects, investigators are
not waiting until the Demjanjuk appeal is over, he said. Elan Steinberg, vice president of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their
Descendants, urged prosecutors to act quickly. “Time is the enemy here,” he said. The Simon Wiesenthal Center’s top Nazi-hunter, Efraim Zuroff, said he would launch a campaign in the next two months to find remaining Nazi war criminals. He said the Demjanjuk conviction has opened the door to prosecutions that he never thought were possible. “It could be a very interesting final chapter,” he said. “This has tremendous implications even at this late date.” Murder and related offenses are the only charges in Germany that aren’t subject to a statute of limitations.

War-Torn and Waiting Afghan optimism fades as the U.S.-led mission reaches its 10-year milestone
is bedeviling attempts to create a viable Afghan government to take over when the U.S. and NATO leave in 2014. Recent portrayals of the Afghan war by U.S. generals have been cautiously positive. International forces released data last month saying violent attacks are down, and the generals say Taliban morale is sinking. â€œWe ... have wrested the momentum from the enemies,â€? current CIA Director David Petraeus said in July, while he was still commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Asif Khan sits on a dirty, once-white blanket in an abandoned cinema and fights back tears of desperation. He canâ€™t find a job for his eldest son, who â€œeven knows computers,â€? without paying a bribe. He canâ€™t afford uniforms, books or pencils for his nine daughters to go to school. And so they all live with him in the cinema, where mangled rebars dangle from the ceiling and a cold wind whips through windows with no glass. Itâ€™s a long way from the optimism Khan felt when he returned to Afghanistan from Pakistan after the U.S. defeated the Taliban in 2001. Now, he says, â€œI have no hope.â€? As the U.S. and NATO mark 10 years of war in Afghanistan, a grim picture emerges from interviews over six months across the country with Afghans, government officials, soldiers, and former and current Taliban, along with recent data. The difference between the often optimistic assessment of U.S. generals and the reality on the ground for Afghans is stark. There are signs of progress â€” an important one is that schools are open. More than 6 million children are in school today, according to the U.N. During the Taliban, girls were denied schooling, and before that most schools were closed because of fighting. The media are also flourishing, with several newspapers, weekly magazines and 10 television channels in operation. But for Afghans, it has been a decade of one step forward and two steps back. Afghanistan is failing in two major areas in particular: Security and good government. Violence has spiked this year and has spread to the once-peaceful north. And widespread corruption

C_n[ZF[hY[fj_edi One in three U.S. veterans of the post-9/11 military believes the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not worth fighting, and a majority think that after 10 years of combat, America should be focusing less on foreign affairs and more on its own problems, according to an opinion survey released Wednesday.
The poll results, presented by the Pew Research Center, highlight a dilemma for the Obama administration and Congress as they struggle to shrink the governmentâ€™s huge budget deficits and reconsider defense priorities while trying to keep public support for remaining involved in Iraq and Afghanistan. The poll portrays post-9/11 veterans as proud of their work and scarred by warfare. The survey also showed that post-9/11 veterans are more likely than Americans as a whole to call themselves Republicans and to disapprove of President Obamaâ€™s job performance. Nearly half of post-9/11 veterans said deployments strained their relationship with their spouses, and a similar share reported problems with their children. But 60 percent said they and their families benefited financially from having served in a combat zone. When asked for a single word to describe their experiences, the veterans offered a mixed picture: â€œrewarding,â€? â€œnightmare,â€? â€œeye-opening,â€? â€œlousy.â€? (AP)
But other reports challenged Petraeusâ€™ assessments. The International Crisis Group reported in August that more districts are coming under Taliban control. There were 2,108 clashes and other violent incidents per month for the latest quarter, up 39 percent from the same period last year, the U.N. says. U.S. generals dismiss the increasingly brazen daylight attacks as signs of Taliban desperation. But others say they show that a stronger insurgency can now infiltrate Afghan institutions and slip into the capital, Kabul. The Taliban have returned in part because Afghans have learned to expect little from a failed government and institutions wracked with corruption. â€œWhen the Taliban left and all the foreigners came to Afghanistan, I thought there was nothing that could stop us,â€? said Ainuddin, who runs a shop on the ground floor below the abandoned cinema. â€œBut all we have today is nothing.â€?

Officials say project is slightly off schedule; others estimate more C[jhe The first phase of the Metrorail extension to Loudoun County could be nine days behind — or six months behind — depending on who’s giving estimates of when the project will be completed.

Pr. George’s Slots Face Protests Ministers, activists say machines would tarnish the county <ehjMWi^_d]jed"CZ$ Ministers, community activists and the head of the NAACP in Prince George’s County delivered a clear message Tuesday to the county council: Bringing slot machines to Rosecroft Raceway would be a scourge on the community. “We do not need more of the kind of pain now being foisted on our congregations and commu-
nities because of the economic slowdown,” said Jonathan Weaver, pastor of Geater Mt. Nebo AME Church in Bowie and the leader of a group of about 150 religious leaders opposed to slots. The council is considering a bill sponsored by council member Eric Olson, D-College Park, that would ban slots in the county. Too many residents, eager for a quick financial cure, would turn to slots and lose more, Weaver said. He was joined in urging the council to ban slots by Bob Ross, head of the county NAACP and former county NAACP president June Dillard.
8WYaijeho Rosecroft Raceway, the storied horse track in Prince George’s County, has new owners who are plotting its next chapter: as the site of one of Maryland’s largest casinos. Under one scenario, Penn National would demolish the existing grandstand at Rosecroft and build a casino alongside the track that would be similar in size to one now being built at an outlet mall in Anne Arundel County. That facility, with a planned 4,750 slot machines, would be the state’s largest. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Penn National, Rosecroft’s owner, which recently reopened the Fort Washington track, earlier released a study asserting that building a full-f ledged casino at Rosecroft would pump about $2.5 billion into the Maryland economy during construction and the first five years of operation. Joseph Gaskins, head of a Prince George’s business group, urged the council to allow slots at Rosecroft, saying that money will instead be funneled to other communities in Maryland that already allow gambling.

Closing Words in Tot Death Trial
<W_h\Wn"LW$ Prosecutors say it was hate and revenge — not insanity — that drove a Virginia grandmother to toss her 2-year-old granddaughter to her death from a sixth-level pedestrian bridge at Tysons Corner Center. Jurors heard closing arguments Wednesday in the murder trial of 50-year-old Carmela dela Rosa of Fairfax, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the death of Angelyn Ogdoc last November. Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Morrogh said dela Rosa was moti-
vated by anger at her son-in-law for getting her daughter pregnant out of wedlock. Defense lawyers argued that dela Rosa su ffered from such severe depression that she could not distinguish right dela Rosa from wrong. But the prosecution’s mental health expert said dela Rosa’s real problem was not mental illness but anger at her family for defying her wishes. (AP)

Price on Each Head The NHL focuses on curbing unsafe hits by threatening players’ paychecks Fhe>eYa[o When Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson was playing youth hockey in Minnesota, the kids wore “STOP” signs on the back of their jerseys to discourage dangerous hits. The NHL has opted for something more like “Proceed with Caution.” Choosing not to follow the lead of the many minor and youth leagues that have banned all hits to the head, the NHL is instead cracking down on them case by case. New discipline czar Brendan Shanahan, only three years removed from his playing days, has been suspending players for the most egregious hits, and the message appears to be getting through. “If the head is the principle
point of contact, you’re going to hear about it, get a fine or a suspension,” Johnson said as he prepared for a new season and a new focus on avoiding concussions. “I think it’s starting to get ingrained in people’s minds now.” With former NHL MVP Sidney Crosby slowly working his way back from a concussion and other stars like Boston’s Marc Savard out for the season, the league is hoping the added attention on head hits will get players’ attention and persuade them to change their longheld habits. Most players interviewed by AP at NHL training camps said the new emphasis will make them think twice before lining up an opponent. Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson
said the threat of punishment is a powerful disincentive, whether an in-game penalty or a postgame suspension. But Capitals forward Troy Brouwer said the fear of hurting someone, especially now that more is known about the danger of concussions, is also having an effect. “I like to think of myself as a pretty honest player,” he said. “So if a guy’s in a vulnerable position, I’m not going to follow through on a hit. I just have too much respect for other players around the league. We’re all guys that are just trying to make a living, and if you injure someone, then you’re affecting their livelihood.” Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash said the suspensions are already the buzz of the locker room.
“Shanahan’s making a footprint in his duties,” he said. “As a player, it’s good because hockey only goes on for so long. We have a lot of years after hockey, and we want to be able to think clearly.” Crosby, who has not played since January, would support a total ban on head shots. “We’re not talking about a lot. The game’s not going to change,” he said, citing statistics that showed that only 50 of the 50,000 hits in hockey last year were to the head. “Whether it’s accidental or not accidental, you’ve got to be responsible out there. At the end of the day, you can do a lot more good than what it’s going to take away from the game.” JIMMY GOLEN (AP)

M^WjM[ AdemIe<Wh The Redskins have the capability of being a good offensive team, boasting depth at wide receiver, tight end and running back, and the offensive line is improving gradually. Grossman is who we thought he was: a quarterback who can light it up if he plays within the system, but also a quarterback who can have some bad, turnoverfilled outings if he isn’t disciplined.
8h_]^jIfeji Jabar Gaffney: The free agent addition of this veteran wide receiver was a very good move. Gaffney has fit right in, recording 17 catches for 238 yards and a touchdown, and last week was Rex Grossman’s go-to guy on third downs. Fred Davis: The tight end has gotten off to a strong start and leads the team with 248 receiving yards. Running back depth: Tim Hightower was the workhorse in Week 1, and Roy Helu in Week 2 proved himself as a change-of-pace back. Ryan Torain produced a huge Week 4.

<ekh]Wc[iin the books, and the Washington Redskins have reached their bye week. The jury still is out on this team as three-quarters of the season remains. But we’ll take this time to evaluate the offense at its current state. The Redskins this season have made improvements on the offensive side of the ball but still experience some of the struggles that plagued them in 2010. Through four games, Washington ranks 15th in the league in total offense, averaging 356 yards a game (229.3 passing, 126.8 rushing) and 21st overall in scoring, averaging 20.8 points per game.
1ST ANNUAL SILVER SPRING
H[ZPed[H[b_WXb[5 Washington remains far from automatic in the red zone, however, and has managed to come away with touchdowns only 46.7 percent of the time. But they’re more middle of the pack (ranking 17th) rather than among the league’s worst. The coach and players continue to express confidence that improvement will come.
7h[Wie\9edY[hd Cooley’s inactivity: He’s been on the field but hasn’t had his number called much. He missed all of the preseason with a knee injury but says he feels good now. But the last two games, he has served as fullback with Darrel Young injured and hasn’t gotten the opportunity to run many pass routes. Cooley’s too talented not to use. Will he get his chance when Young returns to the lineup? Grossman’s ball security: The quarterback has turned the ball over seven times (five interceptions, two fumbles) in four games and admittedly has to do a better job both of protecting the ball and recognizing coverage. Inconsistency: The offense has yet to put together a complete game. It’ll do well in one aspect but struggle in another. Or it’ll move the ball for a while, then the drive will stall. The unit will look good for one drive, then totally lose momentum.

weeks by Monday — adding that no further talks have been scheduled — the collective thought among most fans probably fell between “So what?” and “Let me know when you cancel the playoffs.” The only thing worse than millionaires and billionaires unable to agree on a piece of the pie in this sorry American economy is an overinflated sense of your own worth.

ÇM[m[h[fh[jjo Xkhd[Zekjed m^Wjm[m[h[ i[bb_d]WdZ fbWo_d]$È time off to tour these days and still afford to live in the District. But Deleted Scenes — a long-running D.C. art-pop quartet who split their membership between the District and New York — have found a way to make it work. Lead singer Dan Scheuerman took a break between gigs to talk about the band’s fall tour and new album, “Young People’s Church of the Air,” just released on local label Sockets Records.
Do you frequently get compared to better-known D.C. bands?
Do you feel differently about Deleted Scenes now as opposed to two years ago?
Yeah, and it’s kind of funny. We love the Dismemberment Plan, and I guess some guys in our band really connected with Q and Not U, and everyone grew up listening to Fugazi, but those influences are just floating in a sea of other influences. They’re no stronger than, say, Modest Mouse or the Silver Jews.
Any good stories from the tour?
With your new release, does it feel like the band has progressed?
We played a place called Poncho’s [in Chicago]. The guy who runs the place is a Latin percussionist, and he picked up a Latin percussion instrument and played along. He jumped onstage and played a sax solo.
There’s definitely a cycle [with an album]. By the end of the last cycle, we were pretty burned out on what we were selling and playing. [“Young People’s Church”] has been a nice reinvigoration.
IT’S NOT EASY for a band to take
:WdIY^[k[hcWd LEAD SINGER, DELETED SCENES
Definitely. I’m a lot more pragmatic now. When we released [the previous record [“Birdseed Shirt”], we had no expectations. Then some buzz started to build, and we got some decent reviews, and I thought, “Oh, man, maybe we’ve been anointed, and we can be a real band and get medical insurance.” That passed. Now I’m, like, ‘We’re putting out music, and if people like it, that’s cool.” I just want to make something real. RYAN LIT TLE DC9, 1940 9th St. NW; Sun., 8 p.m., $12; 202-483-5000, Dcnine.com.

?edWHep[Wb8hemd On a 2005 trip to Japan, a teenage fad grabbed the attention of Iona Rozeal Brown. Young fans of American hip-hop were dreadlocking their hair and tanning their skin to emulate African-American rappers. “Anyone who blackens their face, I take an interest in,” explains Brown, who was born in D.C. in 1966 and lived in Maryland before attending Yale University, from which she received her MFA in 2002. Brown decided to investigate the line between appropriation and homage, experimenting with the highly formal structure of a 17th- and 18th-century Japanese portraiture style called ukiyo-e.

I^_d_gk[Ic_j^ Shinique Smith uses uncommon mediums in her abstract sculptures. For works such as “Menagerie, 2007,” above, Smith, 40 — who grew up in Baltimore and earned undergrad and master’s degrees at MICA — uses found materials imbued with personal significance, topping wads of patterned fabrics with swaths of graffiti and tucking secret messages into folds. “Most of my florals are my grandmother’s sheets,” she says. “She’d mix florals and brocades in her home, this sort of beautiful, mismatched aesthetic.” Smith often overlays her sculptures with painted words, stylized somewhere between shodo (Japanese calligraphy) and street art. The former she studied in college; the latter she practiced as a teenager. “There’s a relationship between those traditions as far as speed and the need for something to be correct the first time, because there’s no erasing,” Smith says. “It’s about knowing when to go slow and when to go quick.” S.M.
IONA ROZEAL BROWN, COURTESY RUBELL FAMILY COLLECTION, MIAMI
The traveling show, on view through Feb. 12 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, draws from works owned by the Rubell family, a Florida-based couple with one of the world’s largest private collections of contemporary art. This iteration of “30 Americans” brings together 71 works by African-American artists — 31, to be exact, since the collection continues to grow. Donald and Mera Rubell — who also own the ultrahip Capitol Skyline Hotel in Southwest and recently purchased the nearby Randall School building with plans to open a gallery space — began assembling “30 Americans” in 2005. A series of buzzed-about shows spotlighting emerging African-American artists piqued the pair’s interest. The Rubells had long collected works by major African-American artists (Robert Colescott, Jean-Michel Basquiat) and wanted to bring newer talent into the mix. The Rubells chose the simple title “30 Americans” because, they write in the exhibition’s catalog, “nationality is a statement of fact, while racial identity is a question each artists answers in his or her own way, or not at all.” This statement — and the show itself — is a blunt and powerful refutation of the inference that the experience of African-Americans is somehow separate from that of larger America. “If we’re all Americans, our history overlaps,” explains D.C.-born, New York-based painter Iona Rozeal Brown, whose Japanese-inspired portraits appear in the show. “A depiction of someone being lynched — that’s very specifically American. Slaves were brought here. Malcolm X was here. Martin Luther King Jr. was here. “Maybe that’s the [show’s] call,” she says, “for people to look at it for what it is: 30 Americans.”

can art. It’s an obvious concept but a complex relationship to explore. And the works in “30 Americans” offer an excellent starting point.
She threw herself into the art form, tweaking traditional ukiyo-e to reference American pop culture: A bottle of sake became a bottle of Cristal. In “Sacrifice #2: It Has to Last,” above, her subject lounges in a head wrap and sports colorful acrylic fingernails. Brown likens her work to that of a DJ, sampling disparate elements to create something new, while honoring the integrity of the originals. “You’re not trying to hide [the primary source] or steal it. That happens a lot in consumer culture — take it, use it, toss it. My hope was to keep the work as close to reverence for an art form that I really appreciated.” S.M.

Throughout the 1980s, Weems pointed her lens at neighborhood teens and her own family, capturing the relationships around her to fill in the gaps left by popular culture. In the â€™90s, she turned to collage. The 1995-96 series â€œDescending the Throneâ€? â€” six frames of which appear in â€œ30 Americansâ€? and two of which are above â€” shows how images of African-Americans have historically been filtered through a white gaze.

A renowned Canadian filmmaker is revived in virtual form for the tribute show ‘Norman’ IjW][ Some actors fear being upstaged by their co-stars, but it’s safe to say Peter Trosztmer never does. His co-stars are holograms. “I’m alone onstage,” says Trosztmer, the sole human in “Norman,” a 90-minute dance, film and theater tribute to experimental filmmaker Norman McLaren now playing at the Kennedy Center. “But the way it appears to the audience, I’m onstage with Norman McLaren.” Or a projection of him, anyway, drawn from actual video footage. “I’m really working out of my own imagination,” Trosztmer says. But “Norman” doesn’t require
much make-believe to enjoy, especially once you know who McLaren was. The Scottish-Canadian animator and director, who died in 1987, created trippy, modernist movies that often employed abstract images and artificial sound. “He’s sort of our Picasso in Canada,” says Victor Pilon, one of the creators of “Norman” and a founder of Lemieux Pilon 4D Art, the Canadian production company behind the show. “It’s just amazing, the creativity that came from this man. He used to scratch on the film to make images without a camera. He set out all the bases for a lot of artists at work today in cinema or animation.” “Norman’s” plot is relatively straightforward: Intrigued by McLaren, Trosztmer, playing himself, visits McLaren’s workplace, the National Film Board of Canada. By viewing excerpts from

about me discovering his work,” says Trosztmer, who was commissioned to choreograph the show and didn’t think he was familiar with McLaren until he remembered that McLaren’s films were shown on television when he was growing up in Canada.

When I was writing it, I really didn’t think about it too much. To me, it’s a character drama. I’m not even sure that’s a genre, but that’s how I see it.” At first, the film looks like a typical romance, albeit one that focuses on gay characters. Russell (Tom Cul-

umphs-above-all story. And it’s not, Haigh insists, a “gay movie,” a genre that he feels tends to focus on coming out or the past, when discrimination was more pronounced. “Homophobia obviously still exists, but it is a lot more subtle, and
it is a lot more in the background,” he says. “For these two people [in ‘Weekend’], it wasn’t the reality of discrimination — it was the fear of discrimination. You don’t hold hands because you’re worried about what will happen, and then you do and nothing does happen.” The director plays with this idea particularly with the character of Glen, who seems sad he missed the early, more strident days of the gay rights movement. “When he’s in public, he turns up his volume full blast. He tells stories especially loud so people can hear him. Glen wants people to be more homophobic than they actually are — he’s so angry sometimes that he forgets how to be happy.” That anger creates a barrier between him and
For Trosztmer, merging dance with acting — particularly with essentially invisible people — has been “pretty tough.” But his costars are nothing if not reliable. “You can’t count on the images to be spontaneous,” Trosztmer says, “but you can always count on them to do what they did the last time.” K ATIE ABERBACH (E XPRESS)

The Difficulties Of Directing Dad
Modern-day pilgrims trace a famous route in Emilio Estevez’s Europe-set ‘The Way’ Emilio Estevez, who wrote, directed and produced “The Way,” in theaters Friday, wanted to make a road movie. But instead of hitting Route 66 or the Jersey Turnpike, he set his sights on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. A famous medieval pilgrimage route, the 800-kilometer passage (which begins in France and ends in Santiago de Compostela, Spain) gives “The Way’s” four major characters a path to finding peace. Martin Sheen plays Tom, whose son Daniel dies on the first day of Tom’s Camino trip. When he arrives in France to collect Daniels’ remains, he elects to walk his son’s ashes to Santiago de Compostela, and meets up with three other modern-day pilgrims: Joost (Yorick

van Wageningen), a Dutchman out to lose weight; Sarah (Deborah Kara Unger), a Canadian trying to quit smoking, and Jack (James Nesbitt), an Irish journalist with writer’s block. Estevez felt strongly about filming “The Way,” in part because of a frustration with contemporary Hollywood cinema. “There were a lot
of obstacles,” he says. “We’d pitch to my own agents, and we’d just see their eyes glaze over. And they’d say, ‘Well, we don’t see it, and where are the Transformers, and how can we sell a Happy Meal with this?’ … Even a movie like ‘Jaws’ would have a hard time now unless there was an 18-year-old scantily clad girl in it.”
Estevez’s co-producer, David Alexanian, also wanted to avoid selling out. “It’s a point of pride that we’re outsiders to the [Hollywood] system. You set up a film at a studio, and the next thing you know, the original intention is so far away.’” To retain their original aims, the production team relied on a shoe-

Her second album, “Whokill,” is built from sampled drums, looping bass lines (from bandmate Nate Brenner) and a sense of rhythm straight out of Caribbean and African music. It’s a strikingly fresh sound, but Garbus’ artistic antecedents are right there for the discovering. We break them down in this handy cheat sheet. CHRISTOPHER PORTER

string crew that walked nearly half of the Camino during 40 days of filming. The experience culminated in a stunning sequence showing a real “Pilgrim’s Mass” at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. It was the first time a movie crew was allowed inside. “They said, ‘We’re not going to redo the Mass for you,’” says Estevez. “We scrambled to get what we got.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

Emilio Estevez didn’t have much trouble giving directions to his father, Martin Sheen — except for one scene, in which all the men urinate on the road and then form a human restroom stall for a woman. “He really railed against it,” Estevez says of Sheen. “He said, ‘This is vulgar, and there’s not a moment of vulgarity in this whole movie and now you’re going to have us peeing on the side of the road.’ I said, ‘Pop, I’m begging you. It’s not vulgar. It’s going to be funny.’” K.P.K.

The audience spends most of its time with Weiss in seedy hotels with seedier company. Weiss keeps almost everyone at arm’s length, but there’s one scene where he breaks down, if only for

With live demonstrations, of course. If that doesn’t appeal to you, stick around for the talks on cryptography and meritocracy. DC9, 1940 9th St. NW; Sat., 6:30 p.m., $10; 202483-5000, Dcnine.com. (U St.-Cardozo)
Starring Me, as Myself Art doesn't so much imitate life as downright rip it off in 1981's “Downtown 81,” a film inspired by and starring Jean-Michel Basquiat, shown above right with Andy Warhol. The 19-year-old played a slightly fictionalized version of himself, an artist struggling to make it in New York City. Eighties fashionista Maripol — one of Madonna’s early stylists, who produced the film — and Michael Holman, who wrote the 1996 biopic “Basquiat,” will speak postscreening. Corcoran Gallery of Art, 500 17th St. NW; Sun., 4 p.m., free; 202-639-1700, Corcoran.org. (Farragut West)
Food, Glorious Food Taste of DC is returning after an eight-year hiatus, thanks to a local "Apprentice" contestant — no, not Omarosa. Steuart Martens, from Season 10. The format's familiar: Restaurants give samples in exchange for tickets. Pennsylvania Avenue between 9th and 14th streets NW; Sat.-Mon., free, 10 food/beverage tickets for $15, 10 alcohol tickets for $15; Thetasteofdc.org. (Federal Triangle)
Walk Like an ’80s Band The Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian” may be hopelessly dated and about as authentically North African as the “Papyrus” font, but their retro-pop style is still fun to dance to. The girl group (from left: Vicki Peterson, Susanna Hoffs and Debbi Peterson) recently released its first album in eight years, “Sweetheart of the Sun,” and the ’60s influences (particularly the Beach Boys) prominent throughout the band’s 30-year history are still very much evident. 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW; Thu., 7 p.m., $25; 202-265-0930, 930.com. (U St.-Cardozo)
Holler-Back Girl (And Two Guys) It’s insane that the Screaming Females aren’t more popular — such melodic punk is both rocking and rare. The band — two guys plus guitar genius Marissa Paternoster, left, who does scream from time to time — isn't angry or political, but has enough bite to escape the indie-rock traps of shoegaze and false pep. Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Thu., 8 p.m., $12; 202-667-7960, Blackcatdc.com.

Pronounce it: Just like it looks, unless you’re actually French. What it is: Technically, it’s two elements that shouldn’t go together that are whipped until they do (like eggs and oil in mayonnaise). For chef Michel Richard, “it’s so simple. It’s a sauce, and you beat it.” Where you can find it: At Richard’s Citronelle, you can order hake (a mild fish) surrounded by a ginger emulsion. “We take fresh ginger, lobster consommé [clear soup], a little bit of butter” and use an immersion blender “like a bubble bath.” The result is a sunset-orange sauce that is first heavy on the tongue — and then the ginger kicks in, tickling the top part of your mouth and your nose.

and not speaking it fluently can make anyone feel flustered. There’s all that scientific jargon that’s in vogue, and all the confusing ingredients, and, of course, all that French. But fear not!

9ed\_j Pronounce it: con-FEE. What it is: Preserved anything, but it’s most commonly meat or fruit jelly. Where you can find it: At Virtue Food & Grain, chef Ryan Wheeler serves a traditional duck confit. Duck legs are first cured overnight in the fridge with a mixture of salt, sugar and herbs, then brushed off, covered in duck fat and cooked in a low-heat oven for three to four hours, then stored in their own fat. “After that, it’s good for a month,” says chef-owner Cathal Armstrong. “We killed bacteria with the salt, killed bacteria with temperature, and eliminated any oxygen that’s present.” (The restaurant keeps the confit refrigerated as an extra step against contamination.) This is a rich dish: The meat pulls apart like a pot roast, and the potatoes lyonnaise — which are crisped up in duck fat — provide a nice contrast. 106 S. Union Street, Alexandria; 571-970-3669, Virtuefeedandgrain.com. (King Street)
Pronounce it: cool-EE What it is: A strained liquid, usually made from vegetables or fruits that are pureed, then strained to remove seeds or peels. Where you can find it: John Manolatos, chef at Cashion’s Eat Place, says “we use a lot of coulis, because it’s a great way to use vegetables and turn them into sauces, which is great if you don’t have an army of people making stocks and reducing them.” For his sardine appetizer, Manolatos makes a tomato coulis that also includes red onions, carrots, basil and garlic. “We put that in a cold pot and then cover it and stew them down. And then we just put it in a food mill.” The acidity of the tomato perks up the fattiness of the sardines. When you attack the fish, by the way, draw the knife horizontally to remove most of the bones from the fish (but the bones are very soft, so don’t worry if you accidentally eat one or two).

IekX_i[ Pronounce it: soob-EEZ. What it is: A cream sauce with onions. Where you can find it: CityZen has a lamb dish in which the meat is served with pickled watermelon rind, fried okra and a mustard variation of the soubise. “We like a lot of things that offer a new interpretation of classical elements,” says chef Eric Ziebold, who notes that mustard isn’t a traditional ingredient of soubise. In the lamb dish, the soubise adds a pleasant zing that complements the earthiness of the lamb and cuts through the sourness of the house-made pickles. 1330 Maryland Ave. SW; 202-787-6006, Mandarinoriental.com/washington/dining/cityzen. (Smithsonian)
COURTESY MANDARIN ORIENTAL
9ekb_i Pronounce it: zhu What it is: “‘Meat juice’ is the literal translation,” says Jeffrey Buben, chefowner of Vidalia. Where you can find it: On Buben’s “sweetbreads and waffles,” where a lemon caper veal jus accompanies deep-fried sweetbreads that sit atop waffles and a sticky, sweet bacon “fondue.” Buben is obeying the spirit of the culinary law, if not the letter. “A strict French chef would have to say [the jus] has to come from a roasted piece of veal. I respect the idea, but I don’t want to roast a piece of meat and throw [it] away,” so he instead roasts veal neck or shank (which would otherwise be pitched). “I’m saving my soul by using the meat on the veal neck as a replacement” for a large piece of meat. The lemon and capers serve to lighten the sauce, making it the element that cuts through the heaviness of the sweetbreads and the waffles. 1990 M St. NW; 202-659-1990, Vidaliadc.com. (Farragut West)

Surprisingly, it’s wings — not pizza — that District of Pi does best

Everyone at District of Pi is so! Happy! To see you! Coby Arzola, the general manager of the St. Louisbased pizza purveyor, says part of what sets District of Pi apart from the pack of pie shops around town is its “culture of hospitality.” Indeed, I haven’t counted more smiles in one place since the last time I caught a Miss America pageant. The setting puts me in a good mood, too. Pi’s 220 seats are packaged in light-filled dining rooms of exposed brick and mirrors that make the big space feel even bigger. Cheery, red-checked napkins brighten the bare tabletops, which are also set with raised pizza stands awaiting the inevitable order of thin or deep-dish pizza. Several visits reveal a scene that is, as a friend aptly stated, “very popular with the ID-tagaround-the-neck” crowd. You might already be familiar with the product. District of Pi made its debut in Washington as a food truck in February. Construction issues delayed the opening of the brick-and-mortar operation until August. Cornmeal finds its way into both styles of pizza. The deep-dish version (nine- or 12-inch) mixes cornmeal into the dough; the thin crust (12- or 16-inch) picks up cornmeal from the bottom of its crust. Both models are cooked in 450-degree rolling convection ovens. And both pizzas, I’m sorry to report, are pretty dull, despite whatever toppings might land on them. Arzola says Pi’s “biggest compliments have come from Chicagoans,” but, having eaten dozens of slices of deep-dish pizza in the Windy City over the years, I have to think the support group is suffering from a severe bout of homesickness. There is nothing about the stiff, tasteless

Bright lighting and lots of mirrors make Pi’s already large space look bigger.

crust to compel me to eat it. On my last visit, I denuded the deep-dish pizza of its robust tomato chunks and left the rest of the disappointment behind. Better prospects are mined in the appetizers. Consider making a meal of them: maybe the tender meatballs, tasty with ground pork and beef and a tangy drape of tomato sauce; the garlicky chickpea dip with vegetables; some Thai-style cucumber slices; or, best of all, a flock of chicken wings. Arzola says the cooks marinate the pieces in a Pi-made spice blend for 24 hours and bake the wings rather than fry them. The process makes for a crunchy, meaty, compelling snack. District of Pi? Better to think of it as District of Wings. TOM SIE TSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Hark! Ooohhh, Baby Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber team up for Christmas duet )'
New chick sitcoms are everywhere! How do these chicks rate on the chick-o-meter: Are they 21st-century feminists or hapless throwbacks? New Girl (Fox, Tuesdays, 9 p.m.). Indie darling Zooey Deschanel, above, is Jess, a teacher whose live-in boyfriend cheated on her. She moves out. She says the power of his beautiful hair prevents her from retrieving her belongings, so she tries to steal a TV. FYI, the ex’s chinlength hair lacks luster. 8oCWhY 2 Broke Girls (CBS, I_bl[h Mondays, 8:30 p.m.). Willowy blonde Caroline and feisty brunette Max are poor, though Caroline has a “frozen” trust fund. They waitress in a diner, live together, and might become LESBIAN LOVERS (source: New York magazine). Max bakes cupcakes; Caroline thinks the cupcakes will make them rich! Whitney (NBC, Thursdays, 9:30 p.m.). Photographer Whitney lives with Alex, his scruffy chin and his oily hair. They will not wed because marriage = death of love. When Alex ogles another gal, Whitney stops talking to him, but he likes the silent treatment! Conclusion: For a sitcom about a single woman with realistic career and love aspirations, try “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” on Hulu.com. Read Marc’s previous columns at: expressnightout.com/muse
Rise of Chickcoms
7c[h_YWÊi Ij_bbJWba_d] 15 years after he built Fox News from scratch, Roger Ailes’ ‘fair and balanced’ brand thrives J[b[l_i_ed As the most powerful man in the universe, or one of them anyway, Roger Ailes can look back on the first 15 years of his crowning achievement, Fox News Channel, with satisfaction. And he does. It was way back in February 1996 that, at the behest of News Corp. chieftain Rupert Murdoch, Ailes began creating from scratch an all-news network to challenge the venerable CNN and upstart MSNBC, which was set to launch that July. “It was a risky move,” Ailes recalls, and not just for News Corp., whose $900 million or so would bankroll the venture. Fox News Channel was also risky for Ailes himself, who, then 55, was a communications guru of legendary savvy — a former Republican
The number of viewers that Fox News has averaged per day in the past year — more than CNN and MSNBC combined. Fox has been at the top of the cable news ratings since 2002. (AP)
media strategist, TV producer and, until his abrupt resignation in January 1996, the head of CNBC and creator of another cable network, America’s Talking, that was being sacrificed to free up room for MSNBC. “I realized at my age that if I screwed up, or it didn’t work, I’d probably never work again,” Ailes says. “That was on my mind,” he confides, then pauses half a beat. “For a half-hour. Then I said, ‘I’ll make it work.’” He made it work. Fifteen years ago this Friday — Oct. 7, 1996 — Fox News Channel signed on, as scheduled. And little more than five years later, it eclipsed that epic initial feat with another, by topping rival CNN
in viewership for a full month. Since 2002, Fox News has sealed the deal as ratings leader, dominating cable-news competition in daytime, and in prime time with a murderers’ row of hosts led by Bill O’Reilly. Propelled by Ailes’ “fair and balanced” branding, it successfully has targeted viewers who believe the other cable-news networks display a liberal tilt from which Fox News delivers them with unvarnished truth. Preaching its fairer-than-thou gospel, Fox News leveraged the public’s distrust for the media while positioning itself as the anti-media news-media alternative. Or so it seems to Fox News’ detractors, who lodge nonstop salvos against a network they decry as a conservative soapbox writ large, even a mouthpiece for the Republican Party shaping public opinion on its behalf. From the start, Ailes has steadfastly denied any such political bias or agenda on the part of his network: “I really believed there was no fairness or balance” elsewhere on the journalism landscape.

can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model,” said Chris Alexander, spokesman
for 20th Century Fox Television. He said producers hope a deal can be reached. The cartoon is a fixture on Fox’s Sunday night schedule, and critics consider it one of the best in its medium. But Fox reportedly loses money each year on new episodes, even as all the old episodes run in perpetuity in reruns and are a cash cow for producers and creators. The Daily Beast reports that producers are demanding a 45 percent pay cut from the six voice actors, who reportedly make nearly $8 million each for a season. The website said the voice actors have offered to take a 30 percent cut in return for a portion of the show’s syndication
and merchandise revenue. “The Simpsons” averages 7.1 million viewers for its new episodes this fall, down 14 percent from last year. Back in the 1991-92 season, an average of 21.7 million people watched it every week, Nielsen said. The median age of the show’s viewers two decades ago was 23, and this season it is still quite young for a TV show — 32, Nielsen said. “It’s still a very young and male audience, which is difficult to reach on broadcast TV,” said Brad Adgate, a researcher for Horizon Media. “Its longevity is due to that. They can charge a premium to reach that audience, and they do.” DAVID BAUDER (AP)
New Dimensions Fresh off the successful re-release of “The Lion King” in 3-D, Disney says it will churn out four more classics in three dimensions starting with “Beauty and the Beast” in January. Following it will be “Finding Nemo” in September 2012, “Monsters Inc.” in January 2013 and “The Little Mermaid,” shown, in September 2013. (AP)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Youâ€™re likely to follow in anotherâ€™s footsteps â€” but you can surely add your own personal spin to the proceedings. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You have been waiting long enough, and now is the time for you to swing into action. The more you accomplish early on, the better. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) It wonâ€™t take much for you to have a major impact, and those around you will be encouraging you every step of the way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take care that you donâ€™t read into things too deeply today; remember, some things are trivial, no matter how you spin them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A brief frolic gives you a glimpse of the way things could be â€” and you can have them that way with only minor changes that are easily made.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are fighting your own instincts, and this will make even the easiest decisions and activities more difficult.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can turn fantasy into reality â€” but this can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you do, and the timing, too.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your creative drive is on the rise, but you may not be able to sustain a long and drawn out period of activity â€” yet. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Nothing that happens today is likely to be either good or bad â€” but how you see those developments will make all the difference.
