Vladimir Putin Is Miffed Bear Didn’t Challenge Him to Fight An 80-year-old Russian shepherd said he fought with a bear and only ended up with bruises, bite marks and four broken ribs. Yusuf Alchagirov was in a raspberry field in the region of Kabardino-Balkaria last week when the bear approached him, United Press International reported. Alchagirov kicked and head-butted the bear, which in turn threw Alchagirov over a cliff. Alchagirov was hospitalized briefly and released. (EXPRESS) REELING IN VOTERS

Anti-Bias Gay-Rights Bill Clears Senate Hurdle Washington The Senate pushed a major anti-bias gay-rights bill past a first big hurdle Monday, a clear sign of Americans’ greater acceptance of homosexuality nearly two decades after lawmakers narrowly rejected discrimination legislation. On a vote of 61-30, the Senate voted to move ahead on the legislation that would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. The bipartisan vote increases the chances that the Senate will pass the bill by week’s end, but its prospects in the Republican-led House are dimmer. Prior to Monday’s vote, President Barack Obama issued a fresh plea for passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the ﬁrst signiﬁcant gay-rights bill since Con-
The bill would ensure that “all Americans regardless of where they live can go to work unafraid to be who they are.”

gress lifted the ban on gays serving openly in the military nearly three years ago. “Americans ought to be judged
by one thing only in their workplaces: their ability to get their jobs done,” the president said in a message written for The Hufﬁngton Post. “Does it make a difference if the ﬁreﬁghter who rescues you is gay — or the accountant who does your taxes?” Possible passage of the bill would cap a 17-year quest to secure Senate support for the anti-bias measure that failed by one vote in 1996, the same year Congress passed
and President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act. That law required the federal government to refuse to recognize samesex marriages. Current federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, race and national origin. But it doesn’t stop an employer from firing or refusing to hire workers because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The bill would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions. The anti-discrimination bill faces strong opposition from conservative groups and is also opposed by Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and it’s unclear whether the House will even vote on the measure. Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel said Monday that Boehner “believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs.” Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia have approved laws banning workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, and 17 of those also prohibit employers from discriminating based on gender identity.

LAX Shooting Assessed Rampage could lead to changes in how airports are patrolled Los Angeles The man accused of opening fire at Los Angeles International Airport accomplished two of his goals, according to authorities: killing a Transportation Security Administration officer and showing how easy it is to get a gun into an airport. The deadly rampage left investigators to piece together what motivated Paul Ciancia’s hatred toward the agency formed to make air travel safer after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the attack could ultimately lead to changes in the way airports are patrolled. Ciancia, 23, was shot four times by airport police and remains heavi-
ly sedated and under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital, according to a law enforcement ofﬁcial speaking on condition of anonymity. The unemployed motorcycle mechanic who recently moved to Los Angeles from Pennsville, N.J., had a friend drop him off at LAX on Fr id ay ju st moments before he pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle from his duffel bag and opened fire, killing TSA Ciancia ofﬁcer Gerardo I. Hernandez and wounding three people, including two more TSA workers. Ofﬁcials do not believe that the friend knew of the shooter’s plans. Ciancia is charged with murder of a federal ofﬁcer and committing violence at an international airport,

charges that could qualify him for the death penalty. It wasn’t clear why Ciancia targeted TSA ofﬁcers, but a letter found in his bag refers to how he believed his rights were being violated by TSA searches and “how easy it is to get a gun into the airport.” TSA Administrator John Pistole said the agency will need to work with each airport’s police agency “to see how we’ll go about in providing the best possible security.” On Monday, Ciancia’s New Jersey relatives offered sympathy to the family of the slain ofﬁcer and hopes for the recovery of other victims. The TSA said the other two ofﬁcers wounded in the attack — James Speer, 54, and Tony Grigsby, 36 — were released from the hospital. Brian Ludmer, a high school teacher, remained hospitalized.

Morsi Defiant in First Court Appearance Cairo After four months in secret detention, deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi deﬁantly rejected a court’s authority to put him on trial Monday, saying he still was Egypt’s leader and that those who overthrew him should face charges instead. The trial, which was interrupted twice on its ﬁrst day by shouting in the raucous courtroom, was then adjourned until Jan. 8 to allow lawyers time to review the case against Morsi and his 14 codefendants — all prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“I am here by force and against my will. The coup is a crime and treason.”
— OUSTED EGY P TIA N PRE SIDENT MOH A MMED MORSI
Morsi had been held at an undisclosed location since the military ousted him in a coup July 3. His appearance in court represented a step by the military-backed authorities toward granting him due process in the face of mounting criticism by rights groups. Defense lawyers said they had access to Morsi and his co-defendants during a recess Monday and that the judge has agreed to allow them access to their clients in jail. The 62-year-old Morsi, who wore a dark blue suit, light shirt and no tie, was feisty and healthy-looking during his court appearance. He had
refused to wear a prison uniform as the judge had ordered, according to security ofﬁcials, as part of his rejection of the trial’s legitimacy. Morsi and his co-defendants face charges of inciting the killing of protesters who massed outside the presidential palace in December and demanded he call off a referendum on a new constitution drafted by his Islamist allies. Brotherhood members attacked a sit-in by the protesters, sparking clashes that left 10 people dead. The case against Morsi is not related to events stemming from the coup, contrary to what Morsi’s
Several hundred supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi rallied outside the police academy where he was being tried, carrying posters with his photo. They also chanted slogans against Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the military chief who led the coup. (AP)

supporters maintain. The raucous session reﬂected the highly charged atmosphere of a nation deeply polarized — with Morsi’s Islamist supporters on one side and the military-backed administration and moderate Egyptians who support it on the other.
The judge had to adjourn the hearing twice because of cheering and chanting in the court. Defendants chanted, “Down, down with military rule!” The defense lawyers chanted, “The people greet the steadfastness of the president!” and some of the Egyptian reporters covering the session responded with, “Execution, execution!” SAR AH EL DEEB (AP)

World Activists create fake profile of 10-year-old in an Internet sting Amsterdam Enlisting the help of a computer-generated 10-year-old Philippine girl, Dutch children’s rights activists turned online sex predators into their prey. In an online sting operated from an anonymous warehouse ofﬁce in an Amsterdam industrial park, activists from Terre des Hommes set out to gauge the scale of a fastgrowing Internet phenomenon the Netherlands-based group calls webcam child sex tourism.
The result was shocking, the group’s director of projects Hans Guyt said Monday at the tiny Amsterdam ofﬁce where Terre des Hommes used the 3-D digital animated girl they dubbed “Sweetie” to unmask 1,000 Internet users they say wanted to pay to watch a child engage in sex acts via webcam. “If we don’t intervene soon, this sinister phenomenon will totally run out of control,” Guyt said. Terre des Hommes has posted a documentary about its 10-week investigation on YouTube and begun a petition aimed at pressing police and politicians to do more to halt such illegal sex shows. The problem of online child exploitation is not new. A United

Activists created an animated profile of a 10-year-old girl to catch predators.
Nations investigator said in 2009 that more than 750,000 people are using child pornography sites at any one time. Terre des Hommes’ novel approach involved using “Sweetie” as an online disguise for a group of researchers who then chatted to potential clients online. “We were swamped by men looking for contact, looking for sexual activities with us,” Guyt said. Guyt said Terre des Hommes was able to identify 1,000 adults from 71 countries who solicited “Sweetie.” The group passed the results of its investigation to Interpol, where it remains to be seen if any of the people identiﬁed will be prosecuted.

Changes to Track Work There may be fewer Metro interruptions during future holidays Washington Metro will use this long Veterans Day weekend to extend its major track-work program, but riders are likely to see schedule improvements on long fall weekends in years ahead. The transit authority is “transitioning away from intensive track work” on Columbus Day and Veterans Day, spokesman Dan Stessel said. During the rebuilding program, Metro has tended to
use almost every three-day weekend available for major track work, the kind that shuts parts of lines. Riders protested that not all holidays are equal. On some federal holidays, Columbus Day and Veterans Day in particular, many private employees need to get to work. The transit rebuilding program that targets weekends is premised on the idea that weekends are times of relatively low ridership, when the impact of disrupting a line should be least. But Metro statistics show that ridership on Columbus Day and Veterans Day tends to be higher than that for other holidays when Metro has scheduled major work. Columbus Day and Veterans Day
also tend to have rush-hour peaks. Though nowhere near the weekday peaks, they are still impressive considering that federal workers normally make up a third of the rush-hour ridership. In keeping with this evolving strategy, there was no track work on this year’s Columbus Day. The schedule was a bit of a hybrid, combining aspects of weekend and weekday service. Metrorail opened at 5 a.m. just like a weekday but operated on a Saturday train schedule and offered free parking. The work for this Veterans Day weekend couldn’t be reschedu led, however, Stessel sa id. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Poll: McAuliffe Holds 6-Point Lead Democrat maintains edge the day before Va. governor’s race Richmond A Quinnipiac University poll released Monday showed that Democratic hopeful Terry McAuliffe has a six percentage point lead in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. It showed McAuliffe at 46 percent, Republican Ken Cuccinelli at 40 percent and Libertarian Robert
Sarvis picking up 8 percent among likely voters. Just last week, a Quinnipiac survey showed McAuliffe ahead by 4 points, leading Cuccinelli and his allies to argue that the race was tightening. But other polls have shown larger leads — the last Washington Post poll had McAuliffe ahead 12 points — and the vast majority of surveys taken in the past couple of months have put the Democrat ahead, with his lead ranging between ﬁve and nine points. Some of the differences among

varying surveys can be attributed to the partisan breakdowns they use in their samples. Like other polls, the Quinnipiac survey shows McAuliffe beneﬁting from a wide gender gap. He leads among women by 14 points, while the two candidates are essentially tied among men. Cuccinelli remains more unpopular overall, with a 38 percent favorable and a 52 percent unfavorable rat i ng. Mc Au l i f fe’s f avor abi l it y s c ore i s 42- 45 .

Asked if he would have gone otherwise, Miller said, “No way!” His engagement is exactly what Takoma Park ofﬁcials were after when they lowered the voting age. “The question was, ‘How do
we get more people to vote?’ ” said council member Tim Male, who introduced the proposal, one of several reforms to city election rules this year designed to boost turnout. Other changes included sameday registration and allowing paroled felons to vote. Residents living in the country illegally have been allowed to vote in city elections since 1993 — a gesture that barely raises an eyebrow in what’s often dubbed the People’s Republic of Takoma Park. Turnout is especially dismal for local elections, even in the highly political environs of Takoma Park. During the last municipal elections in 2011, a meager 19 percent of eligible voters showed up at the polls, Carpenter said. Miller is aware that he is part of a tiny vanguard. “I understand the apathy. How much of a difference will it really make?” he said. “I’m still excited about the opportunity. The turnout is so low, even a small amount could make a difference.” ANNYS SHIN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Redskins Call on Fans for Backup With the D.C. Council poised to call on the team to change its name, Washington Redskins management is asking its fans in the District to contact their lawmakers and share “what #RedskinsPride means.” The email sent midday Monday to season-ticket holders is a new acknowledgement from the team of the debate over its name, which has reached a fever pitch in recent months as activists and commentators — including President Barack Obama — have called on the team and the NFL to make a change. “#RedskinsPride” is a reference to the team’s campaign to beat back critics by framing the name in terms

of the team’s heritage rather than as an offensive racial slur. The slogan: “Our past isn’t just where we came from — it’s who we are.” Last month, team owner Dan Snyder sent a letter to fans reiterat-
ing that he had no plans to change the team’s name, saying “we cannot ignore our 81-year history.” The 13-member D.C. Council will vote today on a resolution calling for a name change as “the right and prudent thing to do.” The name, the legislation says, is considered “to be racist and derogatory, and … increasingly considered to be insensitive in our multi-cultural society.” It has the support of a majority of members. The Redskins email notes, correctly, that the D.C. Council has no authority to force a name change. But, t he team told fans, “it’s still important for t hem to hear from you!”

Cover Story Look Familiar? An artist’s rendition provided by NASA shows Kepler-69c, a super-Earthsize planet in the habitable zone of a star like our sun, located about 2,700 light years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.
We’ve Got Company NASA study shows that our galaxy alone is home to a host of planets similar to Earth Washington Space is vast, but it may not be so lonely after all: A study ﬁnds that the Milky Way is teeming with billions of planets that are about the size of Earth, orbit stars just like our sun, and exist in the Goldilocks zone — not too hot and not too cold for life. Astronomers using NASA data have calculated for the ﬁrst time that in our galaxy alone, there are at least 8.8 billion stars with Earth-size planets in the habitable temperature zone. The study was published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. For perspective, that’s more Earthlike planets than there are people on Earth. As for what it says about the odds that there is life somewhere out there, it means “just in our Milky Way galaxy alone, that’s 8.8 billion throws of the biological dice,” said study coauthor Geoff Marcy, a longtime planet hunter from the University of California, Berkeley.
The next step, scientists say, is to look for atmospheres on these planets with powerful space telescopes that have yet to be launched. That would yield further clues to whether any of these planets do, in fact, harbor life. “When you look up at the stars in the night sky, how many of them have a planet like the Earth?” asked Erik Petigura, a graduate student at Berkeley and the lead author of the paper. “We’re able to start answering this question.” The ﬁndings also raise a blaring question, Marcy said: If we aren’t alone, why is “there a deafening silence in our Milky Way galaxy from advanced civilizations?”
“We haven’t yet found Earth 2.0, but these statistics suggest that it should be forthcoming, and soon.” — JILL TA RTER, A PIONEER IN SETI, THE SEARCH FOR EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE, IN AN EMAIL
In the Milky Way, about 1 in 5 stars that are like our sun in size, color and age have planets that are roughly Earth’s size and are in the habitable zone where life-crucial water can be liquid, according to intricate calculations based on four years of observations from NASA’s now-crippled Kepler telescope. If people on Earth could only travel
in deep space, “you’d probably see a lot of trafﬁc jams,” Bill Borucki, NASA’s chief Kepler scientist, joked Monday. For the ﬁrst time, scientists calculated — not estimated — what percent of stars that are just like our sun have planets similar to Earth: 22 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 8 percentage points. Kepler scientist Natalie Batalha said there is still more data to pore over before this can be considered a ﬁnal ﬁgure. Because there are probably hundreds of planets missed for every one found, the study did intricate extrapolations to come up with the 22 percent ﬁgure — a calculation that outside scientists say is fair. “Everything they’ve done looks legitimate,” said MIT astronomer Sara Seager. (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)

3,538 The number of candidate planets that scientists say they have spotted with the space telescope. Most aren’t candidates for life.
10 The number of “Goldilocks planets” that Kepler identified that are about Earth’s size, are circling sun-like stars and are in the habitable zone. (AP)
More Like Us? Data from the Kepler Space Telescope suggest that about a fifth of all sunlike stars in our galaxy are accompanied by potentially habitable Earth-size planets. The Milky Way might be home to 25 billion rocky worlds with liquid water. Star
The habitable zone, or “Goldilocks zone,” is the orbital distance from a star in which a planet’s atmosphere allows water to exist in liquid form at the planet’s surface. So far, that is the only known habitat supporting life.
Some scientists theorize that on cold planets outside the habitable zone, life might exist where water is kept liquid through tidal heating or radioactive decay.

PATRIC SCHNEIDER (AP)
JENNIFER MILBRETT (FOR EXPRESS)
Texans coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field at halftime of Sunday’s game.
For the first time all season, Redskins running back Alfred Morris had more than 20 carries in a game Sunday. In 2012, Morris had 20 carries or more in 10 games.
Morris Code to Winning Yes, the Washington Redskins have a running game. The Redskins surely revolve around quarterback Robert Griffin III, but they finally relied on running back Alfred Morris to sustain long drives and fullback Darrel Young to punch in three touchdowns in their 30-24 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Somehow, a seething public memo over Morris not getting 20 carries even once this season finally reached offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. By Rick Maybe the brutally Snider harsh loss the previous week to Denver forced Shanahan to remember the running game, but Morris and Young showed they’re equally vital to the Redskins (3-5) if Washington has any chance of defending its NFC East crown. Morris rushed for 121 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries. The Redskins rushed for 209
yards on 40 carries. It was like the ﬁnishing 7-0 run last year that carried Washington to the playoffs. The only question: What took the Redskins so long to run more often? “It did feel more like last year with the balance,” Grifﬁn said. Not that the passer didn’t have a good day, though a few missed receivers and a batted ball that was intercepted for a touchdown were certainly jarring. But Grifﬁn found room in the lanes for completions of 9, 12 and 17 yards during the overtime drive when the Redskins ran Morris ﬁve of nine snaps before Young sealed the win with a 1-yard score.
Have a bold prediction for Thursday’s game against the Vikings? Tweet us @WaPoExpress and your response could show up in the paper.
Last year’s rookie combination that produced a team-record single-season rushing leader and NFL Rookie of the Year passer were ﬁnally effectively reunited. It’s about time. Morris was averaging a healthy 5.2 yards per carry entering the game. However, Shanahan has sometimes been too passhappy during his 3½ seasons in Washington and forgets he has Washington’s best runner since
Maybe the brutally harsh loss the previous week to Denver forced Shanahan to remember the running game.
perhaps John Riggins. With 686 yards at midseason, Morris is on pace to fall short of last year’s 1,613-yard total. Doubling his 133 carries over the season would also be far fewer than last year’s 335 runs. There’s no reason Morris shouldn’t carry the Redskins when Washington meets Minnesota on Thursday. Morris is the meat and Grifﬁn is the potatoes this season. Skeptics who thought Morris beneﬁted last year from Grifﬁn’s running ability can’t second-guess Morris this time, with Grifﬁn more of a pocket passer. Maybe Grifﬁn will return to his running style next year when he’s relieved of the bulky knee brace, but for now he’s limited to occasional runs. “We have something to believe in,” Grifﬁn said after the win. Yes, and this time it’s not so much the cult of Grifﬁn as the ground game of Morris. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks
Texans Say Kubiak Had ‘Dizziness’ NFL Texans coach Gary Kubiak was expected to remain hospitalized until at least today after collapsing on the ﬁeld at halftime of Houston’s 27-24 loss to Indianapolis. The team said Kubiak, 52, experienced “dizziness and a lightheaded feeling” during Sunday night’s game before being taken by ambulance to a hospital. The Texans have not said what caused the problem, saying only that Kubiak has gone through a battery of tests and is with his family. “Gary is alert, coherent and in good spirits,” general manager Rick Smith said Monday. “He is continuing to be evaluated and monitored.” The reeling Texans, losers of six straight, were left to wonder when Kubiak will return. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips took over as coach Sunday. KRISTIE RIEKEN (AP)

Dolphins lineman suspended amid claims of bullying NFL Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito sent text messages to teammate Jonathan Martin that were racist and threatening, two people familiar with the situation said Monday. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins and the NFL haven’t disclosed the nature of the misconduct that led to Incognito’s suspension.
Martin, a tackle, remained absent from practice Monday one week after he suddenly left the team. Also missing was Incognito, who was suspended indeﬁnitely late Sunday by Miami. The team and the NFL continued their investigation into allegations by Martin’s representatives that he was bullied. The NFL Players Association also planned to look into the matter. The 319-pound Incognito, a ninth-year pro, is white. The 312pound Martin, who is in his second NFL season, is black. It’s unclear whether Dolphins coaches and management had any inkling of harassment between

players before Martin left the team. Recent rumblings of lockerroom dissension have also included complaints by young players
that they’re pressured to pay more than their share when team members socialize together. Before being suspended, Incognito posted several tweets saying he wanted his name cleared. Agents for the two players didn’t respond Monday to requests for comment. Martin is with his family in Los Angeles, where he is getting counseling. Incognito has long had a reputation as one of the NFL’s dirtiest players. During his ﬁrst four years, he led the league in penalties for unnecessary roughness, and the St. Louis Rams got fed up with his undisciplined play and released him during the 2009 season.

Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, left, has scored a team-high 10 goals in 12 games played this season.
Ovechkin Set to Return Forward at practice after missing Caps’ previous two games Capitals The Capitals did not need Alex Ovechkin this past weekend, winning two games and scoring nine goals without their leading goal scorer, but he might return from an injury-induced absence today against the New York Islanders. “It looks like I’m probably going to play tomorrow,” Ovechkin said after fully participating in practice Monday. “I’m happy to be back.” Coach Adam Oates would not commit to that, calling Ovechkin a “game-time decision,” but he did say he does not expect the injury to persist. “I wouldn’t play him if I thought it was something that could lin-

ger,” Oates said. “He’ll be close to 100 percent to play. It doesn’t make sense to play a guy right now with something that’s lingering. And I don’t think that’s the case.” Ovechkin suffered an apparent shoulder injury during the ﬁrst period of Washington’s 3-2 loss to Vancouver last Monday. According to Ovechkin, who admitted to still feeling sore, head athletic trainer Greg Smith told him that he could probably play through the ailment without making it worse. With Ovechkin back in the fold, the Capitals’ forward lines underwent a drastic makeover during practice Monday. Brooks Laich joined Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the ﬁrst line, while
Eric Fehr, who served as Ovechkin’s replacement at ﬁrst-line right wing Friday and Saturday, became a part of the second line with Marcus Johansson and Troy Brouwer. The team’s most productive trio as of late — Jason Chimera, Mikhail Grabovski and Joel Ward — remained intact, but Martin Erat found himself on the fourth line once again after skating on the top line against the Flyers and Panthers. Earlier this season, Erat expressed frustration over his diminished role, but said Monday that he understood Oates’ decision after the two discussed it before practice. The lines showcased during practice Monday might differ from the ones today against the Islanders. Oates mentioned that some players were “banged up” and that adjustments were being made.

Now That’s a Gut Reaction Back on My Feet’s Anne Mahlum leaves her fitness nonprofit to open a new studio
SARAH L. VOISIN PHOTOS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Anne Mahlum cannot stay still. It doesn’t matter whether she’s midmarathon or in her Adams Morgan apartment — she bounds ahead like a finish line is steps away. Even the 32-year-old’s spiky blond hair seems to fly in every possible direction. This frenetic energy has helped Mahlum run more than just races. One morning in 2007, she jogged past a Philadelphia homeless shelter and some guys outside waved to her. Mahlum, who began running as a teen to cope with her dad’s gambling addiction, realized they reminded her of him. And it gave her the idea of launching a run club there. The shelter director “tried to think of the nicest way to tell me that homeless guys don’t run,” she says. Six years later, the nonprofit organization she founded, called Back on My Feet, operates run clubs at nearly 60 shelters in 11 cities, including D.C. and Baltimore. So Mahlum’s announcement in July that she would be stepping down as chief executive was surprising. And her news release in August saying she’d be opening a boutique ﬁtness studio in Washington was a downright head-scratcher. But it all makes sense to Mahlum, who recognized about 18 months ago that she was growing restless and needed a new project. She found it in January at a studio in Los Angeles that specializes in the Lagree Fitness Method, which is taught at more than 100 locations nationwide. Developed by celebrity trainer Sebastien Lagree — who souped up a Pilates reformer
Feet playbook as much as possible. She wants a communal atmosphere, with “a lot of high-ﬁves,” she says. The major difference is that Solidcore is a for-proﬁt business. But Mahlum sees plenty of connections between the two endeavors. Back on My Feet was a personal project, and so is Solidcore. It’s her
Solidcore owner Anne Mahlum, right, plans to motivate her students through brutally tough workouts with positive energy.
to create what he’s dubbed the Megaformer — the method pairs slow, controlled movements and rapid-ﬁre transitions to devastate muscles. “I walked into this class and I thought, ‘I can run 10 miles without any effort. I’ll be ﬁne,’ ” Mahlum says. This time, she admits, she was wrong. With her abs on ﬁre and her legs shaking, she inquired about opening the ﬁrst Megaformer studio in D.C. Over the summer, she and her boyfriend, Brennan McReynolds, moved here from New York. And on Saturday, Solidcore opened for business. Because Lagree sells licenses rather than franchises, owners choose their own names and craft their own culture. Mahlum’s plan is to borrow from her Back on My
Getting a Solid Introduction At a Solidcore preview class, 10 guinea pigs huddled around owner Anne Mahlum as she introduced the Megaformer: It has stable platforms on each end, a sliding carriage in the middle and springs that alter resistance. Bars shaped like horns shoot up from the sides, and resistance bands lurk below. “We’ll never do anything for more than two minutes,” Mahlum said as the students launched into an abs-targeted warm-up. By the third move (which involved lying back and lifting and lowering the legs), faces were gleaming with sweat. “I know it’s already tough. It’s supposed to be,” Mahlum said. Despite an upbeat playlist,
students have to keep the brakes on rather than rush through their squats and tricep dips. “Going fast in this class is not going to help you,” Mahlum reminded folks lunging back too quickly. After some grimaces, a few grunts and a flurry of exercises (including the brutal plank-to-pike), 50 minutes was up. And everyone looked ready to lie down. V.H.

chance to reach out to people with body-image issues like the ones that plagued her in her early 20s. “I was throwing up my food like nobody’s business. I was obsessed with looking perfect, being perfect,” Mahlum says. “When Back on My Feet started, I cared enough about other people that it went away. I had a bigger calling.” Her instruction style is pure pep talk, with her congratulating people for pushing themselves and surviving. (And because this kind of exercise takes a toll, she encourages breaks: “If someone was coming more than four days a week, we’d tell them to stop.”) Jaime Albarelli, 23, a member services manager for Back on My Feet, sized up the vibe at a preview class last month. “This is a supportive environment, but it’s still no-nonsense. You have to be ready to work,” Albarelli says. “It’s like Anne.” Another thing that’s just like Mahlum? She’s already eyeing other potential locations for expansion. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Brotherly Love Causing Concern
BEN CLAASSEN III
My wife is flirtatious with my brother and no one else. She is not overly flirtatious, but because this isn’t her usual personality, it makes me think twice. I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to complain about it since it’s not over-thetop. But I also don’t like seeing it and want to know why she would act this way with my brother in particular. DON’T LIKE IT
If He Dumps You, Let Him Go My ex-boyfriend is accusing me of “stalking” him because I continue to text and ask him to reconsider our breakup. We were together three years, and he dumped me suddenly. I’m still struggling to understand. I think I am entitled to an explanation and want to hash things out. The less he responds, the more I feel I need to get through to him that this is all I want. FEELING DESPER ATE Just because you might be entitled to an explanation does not mean that he is capable of giving you one. And even if he were, it might not ever make sense, as his reasons would probably never be deemed good enough, thus running the risk of making you feel even more confused and hurt. You can’t picture it now — that’s the nature of the breakup beast —
but closure will come on your own time, with perspective, the comfort and distraction of friends, interests, passions or just an occasional good bowl of pho. If you’re willing to write for my advice, hopefully you’ll be willing to heed it: No long-term good is likely to come from you continuing to contact him, despite how strong the urges are in the short term.
There could be many things going on here. Maybe you notice it more with your brother, or she feels a comfort with him that she doesn’t with other people, or — less pleasant — she feels something for him that brings out the ﬂirtation in her. The important thing is that you’re honest with yourself about how much it bothers you, and if it’s signiﬁcant, talk to her about it. Here’s the rub: You’re not complaining or accusing; you’re sharing something that’s been on your mind. And in terms of her behavior, I’d urge you not to overanalyze (did I actually just write that?) because, depending on how she is with other male family members, it could be that what you interpret as ﬂirtation is actually more of familial comfort and affection.

The Huffington Post has rooms for naps, yoga and meditation Elise Foley was sick of staring at her computer screen last Wednesday. So the Huffington Post reporter walked down the hallway of her downtown D.C. office in search of a cure. She found it in the meditation room, a dimly lit space that beckons visitors to sink into a plush couch or take a seat on the floor in front of a collection of candles. In that environment, it didn’t take long for Foley to reach enlightenment — at least about expecta-
tions at The Hufﬁngton Post. “It’s a nice reminder that if I step away from my desk for 20 minutes, people won’t freak out,” she says. Taking mental health breaks is the sort of behavior editor-in-chief Arianna Hufﬁngton has been touting through her “Third Metric” initiative, which emphasizes the role that wellness plays in a person’s success. In addition to hosting a Third Metric conference this summer and devoting a section of the news website to the subject (a recent article by Hufﬁngton covered the importance of getting enough shuteye), she’s also putting these principles into practice for her employees.

Lying Down On the Job The Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim, right, and Sabrina Siddiqui meditate at work.
Huffington Post’s New York ofﬁce has rooms for meditation, naps and yoga. And after spending a few years in a space that Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim describes as “sterile and corporate,” the D.C. staff moved into new digs nearby with the same amenities in
August. There are other perks, too — plump ottomans invite folks to kick their feet up, and the kitchen is stocked with wholesome snacks. “Newsrooms send signals to people about what’s expected,” Grim says. A message this one’s broadcasting? “We want you to have a life.”
It’s been a process for workers to acclimate to the new options. “They haven’t dragged me into the yoga room yet. My yoga is bourbon on the rocks,” jokes editorial director Howard Fineman, who refers to the meditation room as “the thing with all the pillows.” But staffers are exploring how to take advantage of the ofﬁce. Politics managing editor Amanda Terkel visits the yoga room to stretch after running, and she’s eager to take the regular classes that are starting in the space this week — an instructor will lead both an athletic practice and a more restorative one. Reporter Sam Stein, who’s often up before 5 a.m. for television appearances, is the ﬁrst nap-room regular. When he’s dragging, he moseys off for a 15-minute snooze. And no one’s had trouble ﬁguring out what to do with the ofﬁce’s other new stress-reducing feature: a keg. “Beer is universal,” Grim says. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Bethesda’s Honest Tea has a new way to help its employees unwind: a competition. The “Go for the Gold(man)” Contest — named for CEO Seth Goldman — awards prizes in such categories as exploring vegetarian cuisine and spending time with family. The company also hosts yoga classes, sets aside a meditation break during major meetings and employs a wellness coach. “For different people, wellness is different things,” says Debra Schwartz, vice president of human resources. Wellness could even be beer, notes Noah Brodsky, chief experience officer for WeWork, a national network of office spaces that’s expanding into D.C. in 2014 with locations in Shaw and Chinatown. There’s a keg at every WeWork because socializing “is the way a lot of millennials want to relax,” he says. Amenities vary by location, but for individuals who derive energy from a crowd, WeWork puts in features like the game room in its SoHo office, above. People in need of a quiet moment at the Chinatown office will be able to visit WeWork’s first relaxation lounge. Foam under the carpet will mimic the rolling hills of a park. “Lie down and look up,” says Brodsky, who promises there will be something worth gazing at. V.H.

Gold Is So Passe
Gaga sports rotten teeth at Sunday’s YouTube Music Awards 31
Building a Character
Scent of a Woman Lil’ Kim, above, may be 4-foot-11, but she’ll always be a giant of hip-hop. She came up with Biggie and Puff Daddy. Her 1996 debut album, “Hard Core,” was the highest-charting debut for a female rapper in its day. Her last full-length was back in 2005, and the longawaited “Hard Core 2K13” was supposed to drop on Halloween. Instead, we got a dancehall track, “Dead Gal Walking.” By Shauna We also got Miley Miller Cyrus dressed up like Kim from back in the day. This double shot depressed me. Is Lil’ Kim a Halloween costume now? Like Cher, an indisputable but distant legend? This past weekend, Kim also unexpectedly released the video for her next single, “Looks Like Money.” To my joy, she actually raps. She opens with a dis to Nicki Minaj (whom she’s hated since she rolled up on the scene in a pink wig) and Minaj’s label: “Cash Money’s so last year/ Gotta pay me in gold.” She totters in front of a Rolls and a Bentley covered in stacks of money, drinking rosé. She makes a Monica Lewinsky joke. She’s got money, smells like money. Et cetera. It’s a very convincing throwback to her heyday. I’m just not sure whether it’s intentional.

Sony’s ‘Knack’ game challenges players to gather parts for an ever-changing beast
character to use the graphic prowess of the PlayStation 4. The team ﬁnally settled on the idea of multiple parts, called “relics” in the game, a reference to archaeological ﬁnds. Mark Cerny, an American and creative director of “Knack,” said such a character was chosen because
Video Games Knack was created to be the perfect beast to show off the spectacularly vamped up visual powers of the PlayStation 4 game console. The hero of the game, which is also called “Knack,” is made up of 5,000 parts that cluster together and hang in the air to shape its ever-changing form. Each part — a metallic gold cube here, a rolling eyeball there, brown triangular fur everywhere — moves distinctly, rattling on roads, bursting into ﬁery explosions and morphing textures and colors. “Knack” was designed by the special game studio of Tokyobased Sony Corp., the electronics and entertainment company that also makes Bravia TVs and “Spider-Man” movies. Usually, video games start out with a story idea. Designers then come up with the characters to ﬁt the scenario. “Knack” started with the main character. The storyline, which centers on the journey of a young boy and a scientist intent on saving the world from an invasion of evil goblins, came later. Knack is their assistant. The developers brain-stormed for more than a year on the best
“Knack” features an amorphous character that players build by adding “relics” to the beast.

The PS4 goes on sale Nov. 15 in the U.S. for $399 and Nov. 29 in Europe for $551. It won’t sell in Japan until February — when “Knack” will be bundled with the machine’s $400 price tag. It’s the first time a game from Sony’s Japan Studio is part of the launch lineup of a PlayStation console. (AP)
marketing studies showed it would likely have more international appeal than one with a speciﬁc human look. “It wouldn’t be American. It wouldn’t be Japanese,” he said. “The result was … sort of a moving blob.” Knack comes in four sizes: small, which has 60 parts; medium, composed of 300 parts; large with 1,200 parts; and extra-large with 5,000. The point of the game is to collect parts for Knack from treasure chests, making him grow bigger and bigger. Sometimes the relics are rubies. At other times, they are icicles, meaning Knack might melt in the sun. Yusuke Watanabe, senior producer at Sony’s game unit, acknowledged one disadvantage for a character with thousands of parts. “It’s going to be so hard making a mascot ﬁgure,” he said with a laugh.

She and more than a dozen staffers are responsible for ensuring designer Susan Hilferty’s Tony Award-winning costumes keep their pop despite wear and tear, getting new costumes ﬁtted for a revolving door of actors and overseeing repairs and cleaning.

Good morning, Express readers! Now you don’t need coffee.
Michelle Pfeiffer told The Telegraph that she was part of a cult early in her Hollywood career, when she became involved with a couple who believed in “breatharianism” — not needing food or water to live. The pair, whom Pfeiffer called “kind of personal trainers,” put her on a strict diet. “They were very controlling. I wasn’t living with them, but I was there a lot,” she said. “They believed that people in their highest state were breatharian.” (EXPRESS)
