As World Grows, '&8 It Grows Older The population hits 7B as life spans increase and fertility rates drop MWi^_d]jed On this crowded, hot, trampled planet, one of the most vexing trends is something countless of us see when we look in the mirror: We’re going gray. The United Nations has declared that the human population will hit 7 billion Monday, and an expanding percentage of those people are in the market for reading glasses. The aging of the human race has been faster than anyone could have imagined a few decades ago. Fertility rates have plunged globally and, simultaneously, life spans have increased. The
result is a recontoured age graph: The pyramid, once with a tiny number of old folks at the peak and a broad foundation of children, is inverting. In wealthy countries, the graph already has a pronounced middle-age spread. This is, in many respects, very good news. Longer life is a blessing of modern medicine and improvements in nutrition. Lower fertility corresponds to greater prosperity and education. Women have gained more control over their reproductive lives. But the unexpectedly abrupt demographic transition has created economic upheaval. For the countries that hit the fertility brakes the hardest, the graying of society has become a full-blown crisis. They’re suddenly desperate for babies. They need more workers to provide goods
J^[ceijb_a[bo mehbZfefkbWj_ed Xoj^[[dZe\j^_i Y[djkho$ It’s unclear
how big the human population will get. The planet added a billion people in the last dozen years (and is now more than twice as crowded as it was when President Obama was born). But a relatively small uptick in the predicted fertility rate could result in a world with 16 billion people; a downtick could mean a global drop in population to 6 billion. (T WP)
and services to huge numbers of pensioners. The aging of the world will change cultures in myriad ways. People may have to extend their working lives far beyond the traditional retirement age. Countries may start competing for immigrants. The planet as a whole doesn’t have a baby shortage. Every minute of every day, according to the Population Reference Bureau, the number of births exceeds the number of deaths by 158. But the growth isn’t spread out. Of that net increase, 154 are in the developing world. The precipitous drop in fertility in many nations caught demographers by surprise, said Linda Waite, director of the Center on Aging at the University of Chicago. No one realized until relatively recently that the processes driving down fertility — such as greater education for women and their surge into the workforce — would continue even when women began having fewer than two children, she said. “It’s sort of a head slap,” Waite said. “It was more an unspoken assumption that fertility would fall to replacement and then stabilize.” JOEL ACHENBACH (THE WASHINGTON POST )

More than 3 million people from Maine to Maryland were without power as an unseasonably early nor’easter dumped heavy, wet snow over the weekend on a region more used to gaping at leaves in October than shoveling snow. The snow was due to stop falling in New England late Sunday, but Halloween will likely come and go before many of the more-than 3 million without electricity see it restored, officials warned. Several referred to the combination of the storm’s early arrival and its ferocity as historic, yet another unwelcome superlative for weather-weary Northeasterners. “You had this storm, you had Hurricane Irene, you had the flooding last spring, and you had the nasty storms last winter,” Tom Jacobsen said Sunday while getting coffee at a convenience store in Hamilton Township, N.J.

The storm smashed record snowfall totals for October and worsened as it moved north. Communities in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and nearby Windsor had gotten 26 inches by early Sunday. It was blamed for at least eight deaths, and states of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York. MICHAEL MELIA (AP)

Ads Staple of American Politics Cain’s advertisement of smoking manager joins viral video lists D[mOeha Before Smoking Man, there was Obama Girl. And who can forget Jib Jab? A new ad featuring Herman Cain’s smoking campaign manager Mark Block is the latest political video to become an overnight Web sensation. The ad, with Block taking a deep drag on a cigarette while Cain flashes a Cheshire cat grin, has had close to 1 million clicks on
Cain’s website since its debut last week. It’s also aired repeatedly on cable news shows and become the subject of countless parodies. Online viral videos have become a staple of American politics. Not long ago, pricey paid television ads were the only way for candidates to be noticed. Now, anyone with a good idea and an Internet connection can generate buzz. Some widely disseminated videos have been harmless fun, such as the ad produced by digital studio Jib Jab in 2004 showing rivals George W. Bush and John Kerry singing “This Land.” Others have had a deeper effect, including Tina
L_Z[eÊiFefkbWh_jo Mark Block, Herman Cain’s campaign manager, on Friday said Cain has raised $3 million in October in part because of the video’s popularity. “That’s what we’re seeing in our grassroots activism growth and, obviously, in the YouTube thing,” Block said. (AP)
Fey’s scathing “Saturday Night Live” depiction of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as an ill-informed lightweight. Ken Goldstein, whose Campaign Media Analysis Group tracks political advertising, said that while online videos have the power to influence a race, paid television advertising still carries much more overall impact. “The Internet preaches to the choir,” Goldstein said. “It’s a great way to raise money and mobilize supporters. ... But viral videos are not a way to mobilize passive and undecided voters, which television ads do.” BETH FOUHY (AP)

Officials: Afghan Torture Ignored U.S. was warned of prison abuse but failed to take action AWXkb"7\]^Wd_ijWd Across the street from U.S. military headquarters in Kabul, shrouded from view by concrete walls, the Afghan intelligence agency runs a detention facility for up to 40 terrorism suspects that is known as Department 124. So much torture took place inside, one detainee told the United Nations, that it has earned a different name: “People call it Hell.” But long before the world body publicly revealed “systematic torture” in Afghan intelligence agency detention centers, top officials from the State Department, CIA and U.S. military received multiple warnings about abuses at Department 124 and other Afghan facilities, according to Afghan and Western officials with knowledge of the situation. Despite the warnings, the United States continued to transfer detainees to Afghan intelligence service custody, the officials said. Even as other countries stopped handing over detainees to problematic facilities, the American government did not. U.S. Special Operations troops delivered detainees to Department 124, and CIA officials regularly visited the facility, which was rebuilt last year with American money to interrogate highlevel Taliban and al-Qaeda suspects, according to Afghan and Western officials familiar with the

John Allen, the top U.S. military commander here, he took swift action ahead of the public release of the findings. Coali-
KdZ[h?dl[ij_]Wj_ed The prospect that U.S. officials failed to act on prior warnings about torture in an Afghanistan prison raises questions about their compliance with a law, known as the Leahy Amendment, that prohibits the United States from funding units of foreign security forces when there is credible evidence they have committed human rights abuses. The State Department is now investigating whether the law applies and what funding might be affected, according to U.S. officials. (T WP)
tion troops stopped transferring detainees to Department 124 and 15 other police and intelligence agency prisons. They also hastily
began a program to monitor those facilities and conduct human rights classes for interrogators. American officials denied that they had ignored credible warnings of detainee abuse and said that whenever such an allegation was raised, they took action. Former top commander Gen. David Petraeus, for instance, ordered a halt to detainee transfers to Afghan intelligence and police custody in Kandahar in July. “Any place that we’ve had a concern in the past, we’ve taken the appropriate steps — I’m confident of that — and we’re taking the appropriate steps now,” Lt. Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the second-ranking U.S. commander in Afghanistan, said in an interview. JOSHUA PARTLOW (THE WASHINGTON POST )

lawmakers signed a petition on Sunday, the latest salvo in a long battle between the president and his rivals. Ahmadinejad would be the first president to be hauled before the Iranian parliament, a serious
blow to his standing in the conflict involving the president, lawmakers and Iran’s powerful clerics. At least 73 lawmakers signed the petition to question Ahmadinejad, just above one-quarter of the 290 members required by Iran’s consti-

MehbZ NOTICE OF COMMUNITY HEARINGS
This Notice informs the public that the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia (“Commission”) seeks input on the rate application submitted by the Potomac Electric Power Company (“Pepco”) requesting authority to increase existing distribution service rates and charges for electric service in the District of Columbia. Pepco proposes a revenue requirement increase of $42.1 million. Pepco is the sole distributor of electric power to homes and businesses in the District; hence the Commission will set Pepco’s distribution service rates in this rate case and not the cost of electricity itself. • Pepco requests authority to earn an 8.64% Rate of Return, including a Return on Equity of 10.75%. Per the PSC’s decision in Formal Case No. 1076, rendered in March 2010, Pepco’s current allowed Rate of Return is 8.01%, including a Return on Equity of 9.625%. • Pepco proposes a Reliability Investment Recovery Mechanism (“RIM”) surcharge that would provide for annual rate adjustments to recover the reliability related costs of certain investments in Pepco’s distribution system. • Pepco seeks cost recovery for its investments in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (“AMI”). • Pepco proposes to recover incremental customer care expenses relating to initiatives that Pepco is undertaking to enhance customer service. Pepco states that this initiative includes four major components: personnel, telecommunication infrastructure (hardware and software), storm readiness, and customer education/market research. • Pepco’s proposals would add about $5.00 to the monthly bill for the typical residential customer and increase the minimum monthly customer charge from $6.65 per month to $10.40 for the standard (R) class and from $6.65 to $12.39 for the All-Electric residential (AE) class. The Commission published a Public Notice on July 22, 2011, regarding this application in the D.C. Register to allow interested persons to intervene in Formal Case No. 1087, the formal case established to adjudicate Pepco’s application. The Public Notice can be accessed online at www.dcpsc.org or viewed at any public library. A hard copy of the Public Notice can be obtained by calling (202) 626-5150. The Commission will convene eight community hearings at the following locations on the speciﬁed dates: Ward 1 Columbia Heights Recreation Center 1480 Girard Street, NW Monday, November 21, 2011, 11:00 am Ward 3 Chevy Chase Recreation Center 5601 Connecticut Ave, NW Friday, November 18, 2011, 11:00 am Ward 5 Bethesda Baptist Church 1808 Capitol Ave, NE Monday, November 21, 2011, 6:30 pm Ward 7 Deanwood Recreation Center 1350 49th Street, NE Saturday, November 19, 2011, 11:00 am

Persons who wish to testify in Spanish, Chinese, Amharic, or Korean must also contact the Commission Secretary by close of business three business days before the day of the hearing.

New Attacks Put Hamas in a Bind Gaza leaders avoid involvement in worst violence in months =WpW9_jo"=WpWIjh_f A new round of violence between Israel and Palestinian militants has Gaza’s Hamas rulers caught between reluctance to take on Israel and discomfort with reining in fellow Islamists from smaller, more radical groups involved in the fighting. The fighting has killed 10 Palestinians and an Israeli, casting doubts on assessments that the recent prisoner swap between Israel and Hamas might improve relations between the bitter foes. Despite the worst bloodshed in months, both sides indicated they were interested in restoring calm.

George’s becomes more diverse, its neighborhoods remain homogeneous Colonial and Georgian manses are rising at the Hamptons at Woodmore in Bowie, featuring fourcar garages, opulent kitchens and model names such as Tara. The fact that all the residents so far are African-American, many of them new to Prince George’s County, underscores just how differently the county is evolving compared with the rest of the Washington region. From Loudoun to Fairfax to Montgomery, communities that are growing are also growing more integrated, with people of every race and ethnicity living side by side. Prince George’s stands virtually alone as a place that is gaining population yet has an increasing number of residents living in neighborhoods that are overwhelmingly one race — in this case, African-American.
IkYY[iiIjeho Business executive Sterling Crockett, 49, who could afford to live just about anywhere, moved from North Bethesda to Bowie, Md., four years ago with his wife, Florence. He chose the Hamptons at Woodmore. To appreciate some of the reasons why, go back to the small town in southwestern Virginia where Crockett was one of only four black students in his graduating class. An elementary school teacher once ordered a white classmate not to share her scissors with Crockett, and his high school hosted a “slave day” auctioning off athletes to raise money. As an adult, he yearned for a
The McFarland family gets ready for breakfast at their home in Bowie, Md. A Washington Post study of census figures found a growing number of Prince George’s County residents live in neighborhoods that are overwhelmingly inhabited by one racial group.
IjWdZ_d]7fWhj A Washington Post analysis of census data shows that the number of Prince George’s County neighborhoods where more than 85 percent of residents are the same race or ethnicity — what demographers consider a high level of segregation — has inched up, from 25 percent in 1990 to 27 percent last year.
place where he could feel proud of who he is, where race isn’t everything, and where he and his family would live around other upwardly mobile blacks. “I saw it as an opportunity to get into a community that is inhabited and run by AfricanAmericans,” Crockett said. “It’s a county of African-Americans doing well — more black millionaires.”
county is largely over and that Hispanics have helped make the county feel more diverse than ever. State delegate Justin Ross and his wife are raising four young children in Hyattsville, Md., not far from the University of Maryland in an area that has long attracted a mix of people. His two oldest children attend University Park Elementary School, where the student body is 30 percent black, 30 percent Hispanic, 26 percent white and 8 percent Asian. “We’re giving [our children] a competitive advantage in a real world that will look much different than the one my parents grew up in,” said Ross, 35. But most white longtime residents have friends and neighbors who have left the county and made little secret of why, said several who discussed white flight and diversity. “A lot of white people don’t want to live around black people. It’s crazy, I know,” said John Petro, a developer who lives in a predominantly black subdivision in Bowie.

Today, integration has moved beyond black and white. Often, integrated neighborhoods are created when Asians and Hispanics move into predominantly white neighborhoods, said John Logan, a Brown University sociologist who has studied segregation patterns for 30 years. He says these “global neighborhoods” pave the way for more blacks to move into a community without triggering white flight. In the D.C. region, 90 percent of whites still live in neighborhoods where they are a majority or the largest group. Many whites remain unwilling to buy houses in black neighborhoods, Logan said, and so are most Asians. “It’s going to be a long, long time before that disappears,” he said.

In the District, just one in three neighborhoods is highly segregated, the Post analysis found. A decade ago, more than half were.
In the Maryland suburbs, one in five neighborhoods is dominated by one race or ethnicity, down from almost a third in 2000.
LW$ The biggest drop has been in Northern Virginia, where only one in 20 neighborhoods is a racial or ethnic enclave. No suburb is more diverse than Fairfax County, where just 2 percent of neighborhoods are segregated.

Tired of Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
EĂť Y_WbiiWoj^[ Y^Wd][iWhe_d] je^[bfceh[j^Wd j^[om_bb^khj$ Why mess with that? Three reasons: Ridership on the eastern side of downtown is growing faster than on the western side. Rush-hour trains entering the Rosslyn tunnel from Virginia into the District are jammed. The tunnel is handling the maximum number of trains, and in two years, Metro will need to find a way to squeeze in trains coming down the new Silver Line. Metro estimates that somewhere between 20 and 33 percent of Blue Line riders will shift to Yellow Line trains.
For millions of adults like you, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a daily struggle, robbing you of the deep restful sleep you need to get through your day. Untreated OSA is also associated with an increased risk of death and serious health conditions, including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and stroke. Right now, sleep specialists at The Center for Sleep & Wake Disorders in Chevy Chase are conducting a research study of an investigational device for obstructive sleep apnea that may help. If you have OSA, and havenâ€™t had lasting success with CPAP or other treatments, this study may be right for you.

Metrorail commuters develop habits. They donâ€™t need to look at a map for directions. They donâ€™t need to pull out their earbuds to hear announcements. They know where to stand on the platform to board the rail car thatâ€™s going to wind up closest to the station escalator thatâ€™s closest to their office.
After several years of study, the transit authority has decided how it wants to rearrange the Metrorail trains. Now Metroâ€™s task is to explain this new rush-hour service so people can take advantage of it, or at least avoid getting lost.

Overall, Metro officials say, the changes are going to help a lot more riders than they hurt. The staffâ€™s rough estimate is that 108,000 riders will benefit from service increases and time savings. That accounts for 43 percent of the trips made at peak periods. Orange Line riders in Northern Virginia who have to let several inbound trains pass them by in the morning before they find space to cram aboard should find less crowding, thanks to three more trains per hour at peak periods from West Falls Church.
The transit staff estimates that 16,000 riders, or about 6 percent of those traveling at peak periods, will be inconvenienced. A third of the Blue Line trains will become Yellow Line trains at rush hour. Thatâ€™s not a problem for those who board at the Franconia-Springfield terminal and make the short trip to Crystal City or the Pentagon. It is an issue for those who go on to Rosslyn, Foggy Bottom or Farragut West. There will be fewer Blue Line trains at rush hour serving the eastern side of the line. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )
<h[[JhWdi\[h0 Metro riders who want to move between the Farragut North and Farragut West stations no longer have to head to Metro Center or pay an additional fare to make the switch. As of noon Friday, riders can move between the two stations for free. Metro has dubbed it the Farragut Crossing; you just have to use a SmarTrip card and make the switch in 30 minutes or less.

After 42 years of service around Washington’s monuments and attractions, Tourmobile will make its final laps around the area on Monday, and it’s not clear when another service will start hosting the guided tours. Tourmobile said on its website that it “will cease all tour operations on Monday, October, 31,” and the National Park Service issued a statement noting “conclusion of Tourmobile service” on that date. The National Park Service announced in August that it was unlikely to renew its contract with Tourmobile, and Park Service spokesman Bill Line said Friday that the sightseeing bus company was in “tough straits” financially. On Sept. 1, the company told its workers that Tourmobile would cease tour opera-

A former locksmith is appealing a 60-day jail sentence for scamming an elderly customer. Joseph M. Horton, of Pasadena, is the former owner of the now-defunct Around the Clock Locksmith. A judge in District Court in Annapolis found him guilty of forging the signature of a woman on her credit card receipt after she refused to pay for his inflated services. Officials say Horton quoted a woman $250 to unlock her car during a snowstorm, then charged her more than $1,000 after he opened the vehicle. She refused to pay. Horton was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail, followed by three years of supervised probation. Horton is appealing. (AP)

Ced[o J[Y^debe]o Although tablet owners spend more time consuming news than poking around on Facebook, they’re reluctant to pay for news content. That’s according to a study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, due out on Tuesday.

23 percent, though, pay for a print subscription that includes tablet content. So, in all, about a third of tablet users have paid to access news on their gadgets. “That is a much higher number than previous research has found more broadly of people paying for digital content,” the report says. Nonetheless, a “large majority” of people who have not paid for news are “reluctant to do so, even if that was the only way to get news from their favorite sources,” the report adds.

Bank of America may start offering ways for customers to avoid debit card fees.
Banks Back Off Debit Card Fees Chase, Wells Fargo drop charges; BofA backlash continues F[hiedWb<_dWdY[ Chase and Wells Fargo are joining the list of banks that won’t be charging customers to use their debit cards, as the backlash over Bank of America’s planned $5 monthly fee continues. The retail banking arm of JPMorgan Chase & Co. will stop charging $3-per-month fees for using debit cards when its current pilot in Wisconsin and Georgia is completed in November, a source said. The individual asked not to be identified because the bank has not officially announced that the program will not go forward. Chase, which operates in 23 states, began its test in February.

Redskins Come Up Empty vs. Bills Listless effort results in the first shutout of Shanahan’s career
E^"9WdWZW This Bills opened a season with four-straight home wins for the first time since 1995 in front of a ragtag mix of fans in Toronto, who Buffalo’s George Wilson had criticized for failing to match the intensity the Bills get at their real home in New York. The Bills got louder cheers, but it was another mixed bag of a crowd attending the game, similar to the Bills’ previous trips north. There were notable pockets of Redskins fans in the stadium. (AP)
Ryan Fitzpatrick quickly made his expensive new contract pay off, and the Buffalo Bills finally gave their adopted — and sometimes indifferent — fans north of the border something big to cheer about. Fitzpatrick hit tight end Scott handler for two touchdowns, and the Bills’ defense had nine sacks and two interceptions to batter the already injury-riddled Washington Redskins in a 23-0 win at Toronto on Sunday. Coming out of their bye week, the Bills (5-2) matched their best start since 2008, improved to 4-0 at “home,” and won a regular-season game at Toronto for the first time in four trips since the cross-border series was established in 2008. Running back Fred Jackson continued to pile up yards, finishing with 120 yards rushing, and 74 receiving. With 1,074 yards from scrimmage, he became only the fourth Bills player to surpass 1,000 yards seven games into a season, and the first since Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas in 1991. Fitzpatrick, who signed a sixyear, $59 million contract on Friday, shook off a pair of turnovers — and a big hit from linebacker London Fletcher — to finish 21 of 27 for 262 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie first-round pick Marcell Dareus led Buffalo’s defense
The Bills celebrate one of their nine sacks of John Beck in Sunday’s 23-0 win against the Redskins on Sunday in Toronto.
H[fehj 9WhZ BEST CALL: In the first quarter,
Shanahan had a chance to keep some momentum by going for a 4th down from midfield. He smartly opted against. WORST CALL: After a gift fumble from the Bills, the Redskins went super-conservative with their playcalling and suffered. They couldn’t punch it in, even with a short field. WORST ADJUSTMENT: The Bills managed to sack John Beck nine times in the game, from the first to the fourth quarter. Nothing changed.
If you don’t score and give up the second-most points of the year, you have failed.

They continue to unravel as a result of such a growing list of injuries that would put a dent in Canada’s universal health care system. Without running back Tim Hightower (knee), receiver Santana Moss (hand) and tight end Chris Cooley (knee), the John Beck-led attack managed 61 yards of offense and three first downs on six firsthalf possessions. It didn’t get much better in the second half as they were shut out for the first time since a 17-0 home loss to Dallas on Dec. 27, 2009. It was the first time one of Mike Shanahan’s teams has been blanked. Their second drive of the half ended when Beck was sacked for a seventh time attempting to convert a fourth-and-4.

The last couple years of competitive racing have been, at times, a struggle for Charles “Chad” Ware.

But by halfway through the 26.2-mile race, Ware was still in the lead group and felt great, so he kept churning and opponents fell behind.

Not Weird at All Elisabetta Canalis says George Clooney was like a father )'
7i7bmWoi" Ceh[9emX[bb Wish I Was There Of course, not all of Will Ferrell’s colleagues could attend the Washington ceremony. So the people at Funny or Die asked Amy Poehler and Zach Galifianakis and a handful of other funny people to celebrate the man with their favorite memory. In the process of sharing the touching notes Ferrell sent them, only Larry David discovers the shocking(ly hilarious) truth: they were form letters. Watch the clip at Funnyordie.com. (T WP)
The point was to celebrate a man who has ingeniously employed overexuberance as a way to play characters who are overexuberant, delusional and emotionally unhinged. Ferrell made the evening his own when he was presented with this “fabulous Mark Twain bust.” Which he promptly “dropped.” It shattered on the floor (not to worry, it was a fake). A perfect opportunity for an awkward, bombastic acceptance riff from Ferrell. “If my children try to touch [the award],” he said, after attempting to piece it back together, “I will beat them.”

In comedy, the brutal and foulmouthed roast is where it’s at. Then there’s the Kennedy Center’s annual Mark Twain Prize, which is gentle, like a blankie fresh out of the dryer. Last weekend, it was Will Ferrell’s turn to be swaddled in it, as his cohorts and costars turned out to honor the
oeuvre (say it like a Will Ferrell character might: oooooovuh) of the 44-year-old “Saturday Night Live” alum turned box-office star. “Tonight, we only need to be PBS funny,” talk-show host Conan O’Brien told the audience, which means “not as funny as Jim Lehrer. So far, bingo.” Ferrell “makes you laugh so hard you cry and pee at the same time,” said actor Jack Black, who kicked off the show with one of his over-the-top rock scats with a ’70s, Freddie Mercury-esque interpretation of “We Will Rock You,” rejiggered as “Will will, Will will rock you.” The show, which airs tonight on PBS at 9, included tributes from Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Andy Samberg, Ed Asner, Matthew Broderick, John C. Reilly, Ben Stiller — oh, it goes on: “Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong!” intoned the announcer at the start of the two-hour show, almost “SNL” Don Pardo style, followed immediately by “Gwen Ifill.” “If you a re a fa n of t he [‘SNL’] sketch ‘cowbell,’ you have got to tell Will,” Samberg told the audience, since the entire world still begs him for “more cowbell.”

The Friday after this one is, of course, Nov. 11, 2011. The date 11/11/11 is exciting for eschatologists and obsessive-compulsive types, but more so for the Corduroy Appreciation Club. Yes, Corduroy (the club requests that the name be capitalized), that noble fabric, has an ancient (since 2005) society dedicated solely to its praise. The Corduroy Appreciation 8o<_edW society’s mascot is a PkXb_d whale named Roy du Cord, facing left. Corduroy’s ridges are known as “wale.” These two facts may be related. The club celebrates twice yearly, on 1/1 and 11/11, since these dates resemble Corduroy’s weave. 11/11/11 is the most Corduroy-friendly date this century. So, how to celebrate? The Corduroy Appreciation Society will be meeting (obviously) at Room 11 (3234 11th St. NW) at 7 p.m. the Friday night after this one. The usual food and drinks will be available, but to make sure you get in at all, reserve free tickets at Corduroyclubdc.eventbrite.com. Remember: There is no point in showing up wearing fewer than two items of Corduroy clothing. You will be turned away. If you want clemency, try the Tweed Ride on Nov. 13. They may take pity on you.

The Onion’s A.V. Club expands by offering songwriters series
The Onion’s serious side, the A.V. Club, is following its comic brethren into video. Last Thursday, the pop culture website and Onion newspaper insert debuted “One Track Mind,” a Web series in which songwriters discuss writing a particular tune and then perform it. The first of the 10 videos features Wye Oak indie band singer and guitarist Jenn Wasner. Other videos will feature Ben Folds, Matthew Sweet and Annie Clark, who uses the name St. Vincent. “One Track Mind” also will play interstitially on IFC, airing ahead of Saturday night movies beginning Nov. 5. It’s a small foothold in broadcast, but the medium leap reflects the A.V. Club’s growing multimedia presence. The Chicago-based A.V. Club, a taste-making destination of pop culture criticism and interviews, is the sober companion to the satirical headlines of the Onion. “The through-line — and I’ll be careful, not to be too immodest — is that we’re both really smart,” says
THE A.V. CLUB/AP
We really just want to know what Wye Oak band member Jenn Wasner’s tattoo is.

Club, of the sister publications. “Both the Onion and the A.V. Club don’t dumb things down.” “One Track Mind” is the A.V. Club’s fifth original video series, fol-
lowing shows such as “A.V. Undercover,” in which 25 bands covered 25 songs; and “Pop Pilgrims,” a travel series about visiting the settings of films, TV shows and books. “We feel like we’ve had in the last 18 months a lot of success with just a few shows and introduced our audience to a visual component,” Modell says. The A.V. Club also recently shot a pilot for a series that pairs a book’s author with a devoted fan for a private reading. If the first episode, which features comedian Patton Oswalt, is successful, it likely will become the site’s sixth series. JAKE COYLE (AP)
Their schedules are hard to mesh and match, but the four bluegrass and classical musicians who made “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” are hoping their collaboration will continue in the future. “We had a really great time doing it, but there’s a lot more depth there that we could plumb,” says cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who joined forces with mandolinist Chris Thile (Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers), fiddler Stuart Duncan and bassist Edgar Meyer on the 11-track set. “I think everyone has very different types of schedules. ... But I think where there’s a will, there’s a way, so we’ll see.” The roots of “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” were planted when Thile and Meyer began working together more than a decade ago. Meyer suggested that Yo-Yo Ma bring Thile on
board for his 2008 holiday album, “Songs of Joy and Peace,” and the cellist expressed an interest in working together again. Thile and Meyer suggested Duncan as a fourth ingredient, and the ad hoc group jelled from the first rehearsal. J^[=eWj HeZ[e I[ii_edi Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile Stuart Duncan
The quartet recently appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and are slated to perform on the Nov. 1 edition of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” There are discussions about a fullscale concert that will be simulcast or taped. “It’s great to make a recording,” Yo-Yo Ma says. “But it’s great to also play for a live audience.” GARY GR AFF (BILLBOARD.COM)

“So the program sounds nothing like ‘Jersey Shore’ — more ‘like something between C-Span for cool kids crossed with Politically Incorrect without a moderator.’ Given that the 2012 election in itself, with its nearweekly debates and the affinity one develops for the characters as the months [roll] along, is already looking a bit like a reality show itself, [it] may not be all that farfetched an idea.” — MEDIAITE.COM thinks that the new

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are feeling quite confident, and yet there is something you donâ€™t know that could make all the difference when fully revealed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Others are likely to spot your weak point today â€” but you neednâ€™t worry that they will take advantage of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can express yourself in ways that will win over a large portion of those who have been doubtful or even critical of you in the past. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You may be identified today as someone who can help others rise above that which is keeping them somehow reined in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Focus on those issues that are raised by others in times of stress; they are likely to reveal much that you need to know.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) A surprise is in store for you if you expect everything to go off without a hitch. Surprises span a wide range today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Specifics matter perhaps more than usual, so be sure to answer with specifics when asked even routine questions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your perception of time is likely to differ dramatically from that of another â€” and the resulting conflict may be somewhat harrowing.
