You have to wonder how the Spanish town of Mostoles feels about leaf blowers or jackhammers. The town might fine a medieval church $17,500 because its bells, which toll twice daily, are too loud. The bells’ noise level is 85 decibels — 30 over the town limit. Experts say normal conversation is 55-60 decibels; an airplane aloft produces 110-120. The parish priest might need divine intervention; he said the church couldn’t pay a fine. (AP/EXPRESS)
In August, a naked Donald Trump statue appeared outside a Manhattan subway stop. On Tuesday, a statue of a topless Hillary Clinton appeared outside another station. Neither sculpture lasted long.

Proving nothing was rigged, the city two months ago quickly banished the Trump statue. (EXPRESS)

are federally funded, but the institution frequently solicits private and corporate contributions for major projects that its budget doesn’t cover. This is the Smithsonian’s second Kickstarter campaign. In 2015, the National Air and Space Museum raised $700,000 through the crowdfunding site to preserve the spacesuit Neil Armstrong wore when he walked on the moon. “This particular pair of ruby slippers really belongs to the American people, and so we
thought as we sought support that we would invite the public to join us on this journey to help preserve them for the next generation,” said Melinda Machado, a museum spokeswoman. The shoes are the most recognizable prop from the beloved 1939 musical. As of Tuesday, donors had pledged more than $74,000 on Kickstarter. If the museum does not reach its $300,000 goal in 30 days, no one will be charged. BEN NUCKOLS (AP)
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, in a February 2014 email to his wife, Mary. The email, part of a trove of hacked documents from WikiLeaks, shows that even the biggest political operatives have to deal with Metro’s woes just like the rest of us. The massive hack has produced a flurry of insights about the Clinton campaign. But there was no surprise about this particular revelation.

SMITHSONIAN It will take more than three clicks of the heels to restore the ruby slippers that whisked Dorothy back to Kansas at the end of “The Wizard of Oz.” The slippers, which for more than 30 years have been one of the most beloved items at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, were crafted almost 80 years ago by the MGM Studios prop department. Like most movie props, they weren’t built to last. Now, the frayed shoes aren’t even ruby-colored anymore — they’re more like a dull auburn. On Monday, the Smithsonian asked the public to help save the slippers, launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $300,000. In addition to keeping the shoes’ color from deteriorating further, the money will go toward a technologically advanced display case that will preserve them. The Smithsonian’s museums

Council advances D.C. right-to-die bill THE DISTRICT The D.C. Council will take up legislation to allow doctors to prescribe lethal drugs to terminally ill residents on Nov. 1, lawmakers decided Tuesday. The council opted to put the matter on its legislative agenda at the start of next month, when it will hold the first of two required votes on the bill. The council chambers were filled with people on both sides of the controversial issue but the lawmakers did not debate
or discuss it or raise any questions. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson announced that the legislative body would take action next month. The bill would authorize doctors to prescribe lethal drugs to patients who are mentally sound and have less than six months to live. It is unclear if Mayor Muriel E. Bowser will sign the bill. She has not taken a position on it, although her top health official has testified against it, saying

The mayor’s staff offered amendments that would allow the city’s health department to offer training for physicians and to provide patients with information about various lethal drugs and their side effects.

D.C. leaders have come up with a new name for the city in the unlikely event that it becomes a state. For decades, statehood advocates have pushed for the state to be called “New Columbia.” But on Tuesday, the D.C.

The new name will be added to the proposed state constitution that city residents will vote on in November. If the constitution is approved, city leaders will present it to Congress. The effort remains a long shot, with nearly all Republicans in Congress opposed to statehood. (AP)

Flight success brings space back to Va. WALLOPS ISLAND, VA. One of NASA’s main delivery companies made a triumphant comeback seen up and down the East Coast on Monday night, launching its first space station shipment from Virginia since a rocket explosion two years ago. It was the first flight of Orbital ATK’s unmanned Antares rocket since the Oct. 28, 2014, blast that wrecked the pad and destroyed everything on the space station supply run. Monday’s launch provided a show for sky gazers along much of the East Coast. Reports poured

in via Twitter from observers in Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and even Raleigh, N.C. For Antares’ long-awaited
return, the pad underwent a $15 million restoration, and the rocket got new Russian engines to replace the vintage ones from a half-century earlier. As the Antares streaked through the night sky from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, it appeared as though all the work had paid off. Launch controllers applauded when the supply ship reached orbit and victory was declared. “It is great to be back,” said Frank Culbertson, president of Orbital ATK’s space systems group. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden called the launch “magnificent” and personally thanked the Orbital ATK team. “It’s been a very difficult two years, and I can’t imagine what

those of you in the Orbital team went through,” Bolden said. “I can’t imagine how long you were holding your breath tonight. But you know, we made it and that’s what’s all important.” NASA has been relying on Orbital ATK and SpaceX to keep the space station stocked ever since the shuttles retired in 2011. Next up will be private flights for the station crews, as the space agency works on getting astronauts to Mars in the 2030s. SpaceX and Boeing are building capsules to carry U.S. astronauts to the 250-mile-high station; those launches are expected in the next couple of years. Until then, NASA will keep flying its astronauts on Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft. MARCIA DUNN (AP)

Syria’s “humanitarian pause” is meant to allow people to leave Aleppo.
Russia, Syria halt attack on Aleppo SYRIA Russian and Syrian warplanes halted their airstrikes on Syria’s besieged city of Aleppo on Tuesday in preparation for a temporary pause in the military push that Moscow has announced for later in the week, the Russian defense minister said. According to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the halt in the strikes should help pave the way for militants and civilians to leave the eastern rebel-held parts of the city. Both Russian and Syrian air raids on the northern city of Aleppo were suspended at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Shoigu said. He described the suspension as a precursor to the opening of humanitarian corridors. Moscow has announced a “humanitarian pause” from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to allow safe passage out of the city. At that time, Russian and Syrian militaries
will halt any offensive actions. Syrian rebels, including al-Qaeda militants, as well as the wounded and the sick will be allowed to leave for the neighboring rebelheld province of Idlib. But a United Nations spokesman said that even with the planned pause, the U.N. lacks the time and sufficient safety assurances to begin providing aid. Stephane Dujarric said that humanitarian workers need a pause of at least 48 hours to send aid convoys into the area. The U.N. Human Rights Council will hold an extraordinary session this week to discuss Aleppo. Meanwhile, Asma al-Assad, the wife of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in her first interview with international media since 2011, told a Russian TV station that she declined offers earlier on in the war to leave Syria in return for safety and financial security for her and her children.

The ghost pepper, aka bhut jolokia, has a heat rating of 1 million Scoville units; a jalapeno rates a few thousand Scoville units. (TWP)

The monthly benefit increase Social Security recipients and federal retirees will receive next year, the federal government announced Tuesday. It is the fifth year in a row that older Americans will see historically low raises. Next year’s cost-of-living adjustment will be small because inflation remains very low. The change affects more than 70 million people — about 1 in 5 Americans. The average monthly Social Security payment is $1,238, meaning the adjustment adds up to a monthly increase of less than $4 a month.

Facial-ID tech, a growing form of racial profiling? The growing use of facialrecognition systems has led to a high-tech form of racial profiling, with African-Americans more likely than others to have their images captured, analyzed and reviewed during computerized searches for crime suspects, according to a report based on records from dozens of police departments. The report, released Tuesday by the Center for Privacy & Technology, found that half of all American adults have their images stored in at least one facial-recognition database that police can search, typically with few restrictions. The expansion of the systems has led to a disproportionate racial impact because AfricanAmericans are more likely to be arrested and have mug shots taken, one of the largest sources of images that end up in police databases. The report also found that criminal databases are rarely “scrubbed” to remove the images of innocent people, nor are facialrecognition systems routinely tested for accuracy. “This is a serious problem, and no one is working to fix it,” said Alvaro M. Bedoya, executive director of the Georgetown Law center that produced the report. The FBI defended the technology. “Facial recognition algorithms are developed in the computer vision field, based solely on pattern matching techniques.” CRAIG TIMBERG

the front to Mosul’s east, consolidating gains from Monday. Iraqi army forces reached the outskirts of al-Hamdaniyah, a historically Christian town east of Mosul. The military said it had retaken six other villages in two days. On the southern front, Iraq’s federal police pushed toward the town of al-Houd, still home to hundreds of people. More than 25,000 troops have mobilized for the Mosul fight, an operation that is expected to take weeks, if not months.
A Pentagon spokesman said more than 100 U.S. troops are embedded with Iraqi and Kurdish forces. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis told reporters the Americans are “well back” from the front lines as they advise the Iraqis and perform other tasks such as relaying information about potential airstrike targets.

But the American Mosquito Control Association said it would be “folly” to rely solely on bats — partly because they transmit diseases, too.

Obama to focus on redistricting after term’s end Hoping to regain lost ground at the state level before elected officials redraw congressional maps for the next decade, Democrats have launched a new group that will enlist the aid of President Obama and a slew of the party’s liberal allies. The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which will be chaired by former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr., will focus on key legislative and gubernatorial races, voter initiatives and legal fights. While former presidents periodically campaign for individual candidates after leaving office, Obama’s decision to back such a broad political effort after leaving the White House marks a rare step in the modern era. While the initiative will not be the sole focus of the president’s future political activism, it provides a lens into how he will leverage his influence in the years to come. Democratic Governors Association Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson, who will serve as president of the group, said Monday that the committee will make it easier for elements of the party to make the national political landscape more favorable to Democrats when House seats are drawn based on the 2020 Census. A White House official said Obama “feels that when the playing field is level, Democrats will prevail.” JULIET EILPERIN

Trump’s ‘whining’ ways Obama says griping about ‘rigged election’ undermines American democratic traditions
Rigged? Trump backers make various cases
From Rigging This Election!” reads the website where people can sign up. Benjamin L. Ginsberg, a Republican elections lawyer, said that in most states and jurisdictions, poll watchers need to be credentialed in advance and follow rules, such as remaining a certain distance from polling places. “Vigilantes can’t go waltzing into polling places and challenging voters,” Ginsberg said. For many, Trump’s latest rhetoric is a sign that he is coming to terms with the reality of a contest in which he is falling further and further behind Clinton. Trump has seen a steep drop in the polls as allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances against multiple women have piled up. “He wasn’t complaining about all of this during the Republican primaries, when he was winning,” Nutter said. “He thought the system worked perfectly.”
POLITICS For months, Donald Trump has insisted that the electoral system is rigged against him. But how exactly would that happen? At a campaign rally in Green Bay, Wis., on Monday evening, Dave Radtke, 66, said he expects Democrats will load people on buses in Chicago and bring them to Wisconsin to vote, where legal residents are allowed to register on Election Day. Josh Eilers, 22, said he expects Democrats will go to Chicago and pay homeless people to vote for Hillary Clinton, something that he says happens “way too much.” Sue Rosenthal, 74, said “something seems off” with early voting programs in large cities that she says allow a stream of people to have access to voting machines ahead of Election Day. Trump supporters are insistent that such fraud is rampant and that major media outlets are conspiring to hide the issue. And Trump himself at the rally claimed that “people that died 10 years ago” and undocumented immigrants are casting votes in elections, even though local jurisdictions are supposed to regularly update voter rolls and only U.S. citizens can register to vote in presidential elections. But members of Trump’s party and his staff have pushed back against his claims that election results cannot be trusted. This weekend, Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, said the campaign “will absolutely accept the result of the election.” JENNA JOHNSON

POLITICS Donald Trump’s escalating effort to discredit the presidential election as “rigged” has alarmed government officials administering the vote as well as Democratic and Republican leaders, who are anxiously preparing for the possibility of unrest or even violence on Election Day and for an extended battle over the integrity of the outcome. On Tuesday, President Obama lashed out at Trump, saying that the Republican nominee’s insistence that the election was being rigged undermines the country’s democratic traditions and demonstrates that he is not fit for the White House. Obama accused Trump of “whining before the game is even over” and described Trump’s remarks as “unprecedented.” “There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized,” Obama said. “And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.” Hillary Clinton’s advisers are privately worried that Trump’s calls for his supporters to stand watch at polling places in cities such as Philadelphia for any hint of fraud will result in intimidation tactics that might threaten her supporters and suppress the votes of minorities. The Democratic nominee’s campaign is recruiting and training hundreds of lawyers to fan out across the country, protecting people’s right to vote and documenting any signs of foul play, according to several people with knowledge of the plans.
Obama ripped into GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday, calling him unfit for the White House.
“I’m very concerned about this rhetoric,” said former Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter, a Clinton supporter. “All Donald Trump is doing with these outrageous, false scare tactics is to try to diminish voter interest and suppress voter turnout.” Election officials, including Republican secretaries of state, were also rushing to repudiate Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that fraudulent activity is already underway. “Any time that your comments draw into question the legitimacy of the elections process, they have crossed the line,” said Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican who supports Trump. “Particularly if you can’t back it up with evidence.” For months, the Trump campaign has been collecting contact information from supporters who are interested in being election observers. “Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary

(AP) HACKED: WikiLeaks’ day-after-day release of thousands of hacked emails from the Clinton campaign include excerpts of her closed-door speeches to Wall Street interests and lots of campaign strategizing. ACCUSERS: Last week, a series of women came forward with allegations about Trump’s sexual advances. He called the women “sick” and “liars,” alleging that there is a global conspiracy against him. CIVIL WAR: With a number of Republican officials in open revolt against Trump and worried that he will be a drag on the rest of the ticket, watch to see whether Trump gins up more discord with his party — and whether Clinton steps in to make the case for Democratic control of the House and Senate.

Redskins tight end Vernon Davis draws a flag for taking a jump shot after scoring a TD.
NBA award projections The NBA season tips off next Tuesday, and national basketball writer Tim Bontemps has rolled out his predicted winners for the league’s major awards. Here are three. ALEX BRANDON (AP)
(THE WASHINGTON POST)
SALLY JENKINS | THE WASHINGTON POST
Let them twerk: NFL celebrations far too restricted Either Queen Victoria is the new commissioner of the NFL, or Roger Goodell needs to loosen his truss. The league’s flagging of “excessive celebration” with 15-yard penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct is straight out of the turn of the century and yet another exercise in imperial power. Maybe the next guy who scores should curtsy toward the owner’s box, and see what that gets him. Can someone be fined for sarcasm? NFL officials have been instructed by the league to crack down on celebratory gestures as a “point of emphasis,” according to NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino. The result has been
a significant uptick in penalties — and controversies, such as flagging Redskins tight end Vernon Davis simply for shooting a jump shot with the football after scoring against the Eagles. These calls are not only incredibly quibbling, interruptive, and unfair. They have a boot-on-the-neck quality that is actually uncomfortable for the audience. NFL leadership goes further than any of its competitors in its paternalistic, authoritarian us-versus-them attitude toward players. It treats them like unruly underlings in need of monitoring and instruction on how to behave. When Davis, a cultured 32-year-old man who owns an art gallery, is flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, it’s not just angering because it
could have altered the outcome of the game. The implicit message is that Davis lacks selfrestraint. It’s insulting. According to ESPN, flags for unsportsmanlike conduct were up 56 percent through the first four weeks of the season. Blandino, in a video released Oct. 7 to clarify the NFL’s rationale, says the league is attempting to enforce “generally understood principles of sportsmanship.” But where is offense against sportsmanship in any of the following gestures? Chandler Jones and D.J. Swearinger of the Cardinals recover a fumble against the Patriots and do a momentary little soft-shoe dance: 15 yards. Josh Norman mimes taking an arrow from a quiver and drawing a bow: 15 yards. Victor Cruz does a salsa while Odell Beckham Jr.
“I just feel like you got a bunch of stale old people in the league office.”
mimics photographing him: 15 yards. NFL celebration rules date from 2006, when the owners became uncomfortable with the dance theater pieces performed by Joe Horn, Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson in the end zone. The result: a prohibition against dancing that appears too “choreographed,” or “prolonged,” or too sexual. As usual, the league is more interested in optics and image than real values. Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has been flagged twice and fined $24,000 for twerking in the end zone, apparently because the refs found his hips too Elvis, and according to Blandino, it’s up to the NFL to keep the game pure for the kids. Yet the league has no problem with cameras showing d women with barely covered e butts gyrating in public like coffee grinders. What is the NFL’s real interbout est in being so petty? It’s about controlling the workplace,, and letting those childish com-now modities called players know who’s in charge of them.
ESPN’S KEYSHAWN JOHNSON, on the NFL’s increased emphasis on policing end zone celebrations.

Drafted by the 76ers in 2014, he has yet to play in an NBA game but has the talent and charisma to attract lots of votes if he can stay healthy.

Colonials’ new voice speaks BLUE JAYS 5, INDIANS 1
Blue Jays’ bats awaken to force Game 5 in ALCS
Interim coach Maurice Joseph was an assistant to Mike Lonergan for five seasons at George Washington.
Joseph parried with answers about the people he interacts with day-to-day. “My main focus has been on our guys. I have really been tunnel visioned on how we are going to practice every day,” he said. But Joseph did say he has been in touch with Lonergan. “We have communicated briefly a couple of times,” Joseph said. “I wanted to let him know I was thinking about him. My main focus has been on our guys. Our practices have been tremendous so far.” One of Joseph’s assistants is Hajj Turner, an associate head coach under Lonergan last season who was also reportedly interviewed for the interim job.
Joseph said any lingering feelings from the competition to replace Lonergan are not concerns. “Our staff has been tremendous through the whole deal. No egos involved,” Joseph said. On the court, two of the bright spots for GW are returning forward Tyler Cavanaugh and guard Yuta Watanabe, one of the few Division I basketball players to be born in Japan. Cavanaugh, a 6-foot-9 graduate student, led the team in scoring at 16.8 points per game last season and added 7.6 rebounds per game. He was named a preseason pick for first team all-conference. Cavanaugh has “player of the year-type potential,” Rhode
“As you probably noticed, I’m done with the tablets. … I just can’t take it anymore.” PATRIOTS COACH BILL BELICHICK, explaining why he will stop using league-provided Microsoft Surface tablets, which
he has deemed “unreliable,” during games. Cameras caught Belichick smashing a tablet on the sideline this season. ason.
NLCS Game 3 between the Cubs and Dodgers in Los Angeles ended after Express’ deadline
Island coach Dan Hurley said. Watanabe, a 6-8 junior wing, averaged 8.4 points and 4.0 rebounds last season, adding a team-high 36 blocks. Another key player for Joseph is Jaren Sina, a transfer from Seton Hall who figures to take over point guard duties from McDonald and Paul Jorgensen, who is with Butler as one of 13 transfers to leave under Lonergan. GW, which was picked to finish eighth out of 14 teams in the conference, hosts Maryland-Eastern Shore in its opener Nov. 11. Under second-year coach Dave Paulsen, George Mason, which was picked 12th, begins the season Nov. 12 at home against Towson. DAVID DRIVER (FOR EXPRESS) RESS)
After losing to the Indians in the first three games of the AL Championship Series, the Blue Jays avoided elimination with a 5-1 win Tuesday in Toronto, which hosts Game 5 today (4 p.m., TBS). Josh Donaldson homered in the third inning and Ezequiel Carrera singled in the fourth to give the Blue Jays an early 2-0 lead. Roberto Perez hit an RBI-double for the Indians in the fifth, but Edwin Encarnacion answered with a two-run single in the seventh. Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez allowed Cleveland’s only two hits in six innings of work. (EXPRESS)
COURTESY OF GW
COLLEGE BASKETBALL Even under ideal circumstances, this figured to be a challenging season for George Washington men’s basketball. The Colonials won the NIT title last season but graduated a senior core of Patricio Garino, Kevin Larsen and Joe McDonald, who combined to score 35.2 points per game last season and tallied 4,174 points combined in four seasons together. Then, on Sept. 17, the school dismissed coach Mike Lonergan, ending his five-season tenure after an investigation into players’ allegations of verbal abuse. Maurice Joseph, who played for Lonergan at the University of Vermont before graduating in 2009, had been Lonergan’s assistant for five seasons before he was named interim head coach in late September. “It was kind of unexpected, a little bit of shock,” Joseph, 31, said Tuesday while speaking about his promotion during Atlantic 10 media day in Pittsburgh. As Joseph finds his own style, he said he will try to mimic Lonergan’s detail-oriented approach. “He was really good at teaching details of his system,” Joseph said. “His attention to detail is tremendous. He does a great job of teaching his system.” When asked what he will do differently than Lonergan,
Coach Joseph makes first comments since GW ousted Lonergan
Packers get Knile Davis from Chiefs for a pick The Chiefs on Tuesday traded backup running back Knile Davis to the Packers, who desperately need to add depth to their injury-riddled backfield. Green Bay gave up a conditional draft pick for Davis, who has already started practicing with his new team. The Packers needed help at running back with Eddie Lacy nursing a bothersome ankle and James Starks undergoing knee surgery. Davis had been surpassed by Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West in Kansas City. Jamaal Charles’ return from a knee injury made Davis expendable. (AP)

Customers wait outside for a coveted seat at Bad Saint.
This guide left us lost WHEN MICHELIN ANNOUNCED THAT IT WOULD RELEASE ITS FIRST GUIDE IN D.C., locals were worried that the city would be misunderstood.
After all, Michelin’s inspectors evaluate restaurants around the world. That’s what they say makes them objective — three stars indicate the same caliber of experience all over the world, and they don’t grade on a curve — but it also risks certain restaurants or local favorites being lost in translation. That was the case when the D.C. guide was released last week. Here are some of the Michelin Guide’s most confounding head-scratchers. MAURA JUDKIS AND TIM CARMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST)
They’re unimpressed by the facades of our buildings Michelin frequently mentions unimpressive building facades throughout the guide, a dig at D.C.’s bland architecture, which admittedly isn’t the most avant-garde. But it does keep coming up. Del Campo’s “bland facade belies a refined-rustic interior.” Minibar is “set at the base of an antiseptic building.” Sushi Taro’s “odd location” unsurprisingly gets a mention, “adjacent to a large-chain pharmacy” (it’s a CVS). Tosca is “situated at the base of a nondescript office building.”
They’re kind of afraid of our neighborhoods Michelin often refers to oncedangerous neighborhoods. H Street is their most frequent target: It’s a “grungy stretch” in the Toki Underground review, “gritty” in the Maketto one. Of The Dabney in Shaw’s Blagden Alley, they write, “Your mother warned you about walking down dark alleys.” Meanwhile, they like to guess who’s dining at these spots. Convivial is “popular with young professionals, families and academics from nearby Howard.” The Oval Room is the “restaurant of choice for a particular brand of Beltway insider.” (And, by the way, what brand would that be?)
They love puns
Every writer succumbs to a bad pun now and then, but boy, oh boy, do Michelin inspectors love them. They seem to be most prevalent in the D.C. guide, too — or at least we didn’t see nearly as many in a skim though the New York and San Francisco books. Here are some real groaners: Of Anxo, they write, “This Cider House rules.” For tiny Filipino restaurant Bad Saint: “You’ll need the patience of a saint to secure a meal here.” Of Southern-inspired Bidwell in Union Market: “You will indeed fare well at Bidwell.” And of Hank’s Oyster Bar: “Prepare yourself for a sea, ahem, of dishes.”
They basically ignored one of D.C.’s largest immigrant groups The Red Guide features cuisines from Italy, Thailand, France, Japan, Peru, Laos, Spain, Mexico, Greece and countless other locales. But the only restaurant that marginally features Vietnamese fare is Doi Moi, the pan-Asian spot on 14th Street NW. This, despite the fact that the metro area is one of the major destinations for Vietnamese immigrants. Sure, the best Vietnamese eateries reside in suburban Virginia, outside the scope of the debut guide, but couldn’t an inspector at least darken the door of a D.C. pho parlor?
The Wydown’s new coffee shop location will open in November in H Street’s Apollo building
They like talking about ... mating?
Michelin’s really into talking about the birds and the bees. “If the hip gods of food and shopping mated, Maketto would be their love child,” begins one description. There’s another improbable match: “Take a chic Parisian and a ten gallon-hat-wearing cowboy and blend for an improbable but oh-so-happy mix and you have Mintwood Place.” Speaking of weird metaphors, on Conosci, the restaurant-within-arestaurant, Michelin writes: “Safely ensconced inside big sister restaurant Alta Strada (there’s no other entrance), Conosci feels a bit like taking a girl on a date and having her older brother tag along.”

Rasa Indian Grill 1277 First St. SE
Rahul Vinod, above left, and Sahil Rahman, right, have sort of been preparing to launch their fast-casual Indian concept their whole lives. Their fathers, co-owners of Indique in Cleveland Park, have raised them in the restaurant world. Rasa, opening next summer in Navy Yard’s F1RST building, will try to fill a gap that the owners identified in the Indian dining market. While there are refined Indian restaurants (like Rasika, Passage to India and Masala Art) and mom-and-pop joints (Indigo, Bethesda Curry Kitchen, etc.), there are few places to order chicken curry in a hurry. At Rasa, customers will follow the familiar build-your-own approach of fast-casual shops. “We are going to have authentically Indian food, but we’re taking those flavors and putting them into a more accessible format,” Rahman says.

Kelly Reichardt’s interior motive FILM Kelly Reichardt had a few challenges when it came to filming “Certain Women.” The first one was location, location, location. Most of the director’s previous films — including acclaimed indies “Meek’s Cutoff,” “Wendy and Lucy” and her most recent film, 2013’s “Night Moves” — dealt with the characters’ relationship to the land around them and were mostly shot outdoors. “To be honest, I shot so much
outdoor film because when I started I just couldn’t afford lights,” Reichardt says. “When I was making ‘Night Moves,’ there were all these complicated outdoor shots and all of that was really comfortable to me, and then there was one day we shot inside a house. It was just in a kitchen and it was the hardest scene for me in the whole movie. ‘What do I do with these four walls?’ I had no idea.” Reichardt made sure “Certain
Women,” which opens Friday, would be different. “I set it up as a challenge for myself: I had to have some interiors in this film,” she says. “I had to conquer that.” That’s one reason most of the film takes place inside. It’s made up of three thematically linked short films, all based on short stories by Maile Meloy. In the first, Laura Dern plays a lawyer working with a client who will not take her advice that he has no case — until they visit a male lawyer who concurs. In the second, a woman (Michelle Williams) moving to Montana with her family seeks sandstone for her dream home. She spots some in a man’s front yard and offers to buy it, but he will only negotiate with
Michael Moore will self-release a film about Donald Trump called “Michael Moore in Trumpland”
Director Kelly Reichardt gave herself a challenge with “Certain Women”: to find her indoor voice.
her husband. In the last story, a rancher (Lily Gladstone) develops a crush after accidentally wandering into a class taught by a young law student (Kristen Stewart). While the storylines never connect, they all feature women trying to navigate a world in which the rules for being a woman the “right” way are unwritten but still very much in play. It was Reichardt’s job to make them work as a cohesive whole. “They were shot as three separate films, but you have to keep in mind the overall arc of it,” Reichardt says. “Hopefully the third story reverberates back to the earlier story. Hopefully the work for that has been set up.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

Justice for those living in fear of Franco’s smile
One Olsen done hunting fossils Thirty-year-old Ashley Olsen — who has been linked to director Bennett Miller, 49, and painter George Condo, 59 — might have a new boyfriend: Hayden Slater, a youthful-looking gentleman and the CEO of Pressed Juicery. The two went on a “romantic” hike together Monday in Los Angeles, the Daily Mail reported. That same day, Slater shared an Instagram photo in which Olsen is holding his hand. Mary-Kate Olsen and her husband, Olivier Sarkozy, 47, are also in the photo.
