Swift Forecasting Saved Lives Multiple warnings prevented more loss of life across Midwest When a cluster of violent thunderstorms began marching across the Midwest, forecasters were able to draw a bright line across a map showing where the worst of the weather would go. Their uncannily accurate predictions, combined with television and radio warnings, text-message alerts and storm sirens, almost certainly saved lives when rare lateseason tornadoes dropped out of a dark autumn sky. Although the storms howled across 12 states and f lattened entire neighborhoods within a matter of minutes, the death toll stood at just eight. By Monday, another more prosaic reason for the relatively low death toll came to light: In the hardest-hit town, most families were in church. “I don’t think we had one church damaged,” said Gary Manier, mayor of Washington, Ill., a town

of 16,000 about 140 miles southwest of Chicago. The tornado cut a path about an eighth of a mile wide from one side of Washington to the other and damaged or destroyed as many as 500 homes. Another factor was forecasting, which has steadily improved with the arrival of faster, more powerful computers. Scientists are now better able to replicate atmospheric processes into mathematical equations. In the last decade alone, forecasters have doubled the number of days in advance that weather experts can anticipate major storms, said Bill Bunting of the National Weather Service. The unusually powerful lateseason wave of thunderstorms brought damaging winds and tornadoes to 12 states: Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and western New York. Despite Sunday’s destruction and at least eight deaths, 2013 has been a relatively mild year for twisters in the U.S., with the number of tornadoes running at or near record lows.

Outside Groups Rally for Hillary Washington As Hillary Rodham Clinton privately weighs a second White House run, pieces of the Democratic establishment are beginning to fall into place publicly to help her possible candidacy. Several super political action committees are collectively acting as an early de facto campaign organization to ensure Clinton is ready to compete vigorously if she decides to try again to become the ﬁrst female president. They’re building a network without her direct consent. But she’s not objecting either, and some Democrats are interpreting that as encouragement to push forward.

Corruption Fears Hit Philippines
As typhoon relief flows, faith in the government is low
When a newspaper for Filipino workers in New Zealand told readers how to donate to the typhoon relief effort in their homeland, it mentioned agencies like the Red Cross but not a list of government bank accounts that the Philippine Embassy had sent over. “I’m not going to mince words,” said Mel Fernandez, the editorial adviser for the Filipino Migrant News. “We would like every cent to reach those poor people there rather than getting waylaid.” Corruption is a concern after any major natural disaster, as millions of dollars in cash and goods rush in from around the world. But those worries are especially acute in the Philippines, where graft has been a part of life for decades. The government of President Benigno Aquino III, who has made ﬁghting corruption a prior-

ity, is promising full transparency in reconstruction spending in areas devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Yolanda. It announced Monday that it has established a website called the Foreign Aid Transparency Hub where funds given by foreign donors can be tracked. It is far too soon to say how much aid intended for victims of last week’s Typhoon Haiyan might
end up in the wrong hands. Foreign donors demand strict anti-graft measures in projects they fund, but privately admit that “leakage” of funds is sometimes inevitable. Filipinos working abroad and sending money home to their families are an important source of cash in the country under any circumstances, but Fernandez expects that they will be skeptical about giving money to the government.

Council members voted overwhelmingly to cut Ford’s ofﬁce budget by 60 percent and allow mayoral staff to join the deputy mayor. Ford now effectively has no legislative power as he would no longer chair the executive committee. Ford retains his title and ability to represent Toronto at ofﬁcial functions. He called the effort a “coup d’etat” and vowed an “outright war” in the next election. The debate on the motion became heated after Ford paced

A retired Minnesota carpenter, shown in a June investigation to be a former commander in a Nazi SSled unit, ordered his men to attack a Polish village that was razed to the ground, according to testimony newly uncovered by The Associated Press. The account of the massacre that killed dozens of women and children contradicts statements by the man’s family that he was never at the scene of the 1944 bloodshed. The June story prompted ofﬁcial investigations in both Poland and Germany. On Monday, the prosecutor leading Germany’s probe revealed that he has decided to recommend that state prosecutors pursue murder charges against 94-year-old Michael Karkoc. Thomas Will, the deputy head of the special prosecutors’ ofﬁce that investigates Nazi crimes, said he had made his decision even before seeing the new testimony that Kar-

koc ordered his unit to attack the Polish village of Chlaniow. A newly unearthed investigative ﬁle originally from the Ukrainian intelligence agency’s archive reveals that a private under Karkoc’s command testiﬁed in 1968 that Karkoc ordered the assault on Chlaniow in retaliation for the slaying of an SS major. The major, slain by resistance ﬁghters, led the Ukrainian Self Defense Legion, in which Karkoc was a company commander. A German roster of the unit conﬁrms that Pvt. Ivan Sharko, a Ukrainian, served under Karkoc’s command at the time. An initial
Backstory The initial investigation found that Michael Karkoc entered the U.S. in 1949 by failing to disclose to authorities his role as a commander in the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defense Legion, which is accused of torching villages and killing civilians in Poland. The investigation found that Karkoc was in the area of the massacres, but did not initially uncover evidence linking him directly to atrocities. (AP)
order was given by a separate ofﬁcer, Sharko testiﬁed, before Karkoc told his unit to attack the village. Eyewitness accounts, both from villagers and members of Karkoc’s unit, corroborate the testimony that the company set buildings on ﬁre and gunned down more than 40 men, women and children. Michael Karkoc continues to live quietly in Minneapolis as he has for decades. Karkoc’s son and family spokesman, Andriy Karkos, has denied his 94-year-old father’s involvement in the Chlaniow incident or any other possible war crime. DAVID RISING AND R ANDY HERSCHAF T (AP)

Could the Metro Messes Be Less Messy? I’d weathered the delays twice in the past week, so on Thursday after standing on a crowded platform for 20 minutes, I ﬁnally gave up and left. To add insult to injury, I still got charged the $2.10 base fee, even though I never went anywhere. Is there any hope of a change to this policy — say when there are delays over X minutes you can enter and exit at the same station for free? In this particular case, I’d apply through Metro’s customer service line for a refund, because the SmarTrip technology is at least smart enough to detect that you
were caught up in the Red Line delays. If it happened again, I think I’d go to the station manager and asked to be let out through the gate.
Whenever the Red Line breaks during the morning rush, I have the same question: Why can’t Metro run more buses down Connecticut Avenue? The buses are so full that they don’t stop to pick up new riders. When you live in D.C., you have two options: (1) body slam your way into a packed train, or (2) wave at buses as they pass. The buses on the Connecticut Avenue Line are scheduled to run

six minutes apart at the height of rush hour. That’s pretty good for a Metrobus route, but apparently not good enough to meet the demand, even on normal days. Riders should tell Metrobus officials where they want more service, because I think the officials will pay attention. However, there are limits on what they can do.
When they see that it’s a seriously long delay, why don’t they run eight car trains? Certainly they had enough time to realize how long it would take and make the adjustments. The delays went on an incredibly long time, but I think not long enough to rearrange the train sets
without causing an even worse disruption in service. Metro does position some “gap” trains to enter service during emergencies, but as with the Metrobuses, there are limits. When there’s single-tracking at rush hour, the inbound trains are going to stack up waiting their turn at the entry point to the singletracking zone. That’s going to mess up the schedule all along the line.
I noticed that signs showing the Silver Line were up at Ballston this morning. Is Metro not worried that riders might get confused and start looking for trains that are going toward Tysons now? Yes. Lynn Bowersox, the Metro official leading the marketing cam-
paign for the Silver Line, has noted the concern that riders can get confused if certain types of information are deployed too early. The problem is that they can’t make all the wayfinding changes at the last minute, just before the Silver Line opens.
I’ve noticed lately that my SmarTrip card, which I got about a year or two after they were introduced, won’t register at some fare gates. Is it the card, the gate card reader, or both? Many of us have had problems with individual fare card readers. If that’s what’s going on, I think it’s not a problem with your SmarTrip card. I’ve had my card about as long as you have, and it still works ﬁne — despite the occasional problem with a faregate reader.

10TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR OF DUB SIDE OF THE MOON
D.C.’s Building Heights May Rise ‘Targeted exceptions’ recommended by a key planning body Washington A key planning body is poised to recommend that Congress allow D.C. leaders to relax building height limits in some parts of the city. Draft recommendations released Monday by the National Capital Planning Commission call for allowing “targeted exceptions” to the current building height limitations, set by a 1910 act of Congress.
The Caveats The draft recommendations say changes to the height limit should apply only outside the portion of the city planned by Pierre L’Enfant, roughly situated south of Florida Avenue from Rock Creek west to the Anacostia River. They hold that changes to the current heights of buildings, which are generally calibrated to the widths of the streets they face, must be approved through the city’s comprehensive plan — a document subject to a rigorous drafting process. (T WP)
The draft offered Monday, while more open to changes than an initial set of recommendations, comes nowhere close to the recommendations issued by the District’s planning ofﬁce in September, which called for downtown buildings as
high as 200 feet — 40 feet higher than the current limit for structures along Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Harriet Tregoning, the city’s chief planner, has argued that the city needs to consider relaxing height limits now in order to
accommodate the city’s growth — particularly in light of the city’s recent population boom. But many local activists have strongly objected to the notion that the city’s buildings must grow taller. Groups including the National Trust for Historic Preservation have said the arguments in favor of changing the height limits are unsound and threaten the city’s character. If the draft recommendations are approved today as expected, they will be forwarded to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. MIKE DeBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Local Zebra Bites Zookeeper, Spooked Gazelle Dies Washington A young gazelle died at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo on Monday, apparently from injuries sustained when it ran into a barrier. Zoo officials said the animal seemed to have been spooked by noises coming from a nearby enclosure, where a zebra had attacked a zoo keeper. The unlikely series of events began around 8:45 a.m., the zoo said in a statement, when a 10-yearold male zebra bit a veteran keeper multiple times. The keeper, whose name was not released, was “deﬁnitely bleeding,” but conscious and talking as he was taken to a local
hospital for treatment, said Annalisa Meyer, a zoo spokeswoman. Ofﬁcials are trying to determine why the keeper was inside the enclosure with the animals, which is a violation of zoo procedures. The incident occurred out of public view. About 11:15 a.m., a dama gazelle was found dead inside his enclosure, next to where the zebras are located. Initial necropsy results indicate that the gazelle had fractured a vertebrae. “The gazelle was likely spooked by the incident between the keeper and the zebra and ran into the barrier,” Meyer said.

MICHAEL S. WILLIAMSON PHOTOS (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Jackie Parham, 80, fears that a planned TGI Fridays below her home in a senior residence will be disruptive to her quiet life.
Booming Too Loudly? D.C.’s burgeoning youth scene leaves some city elders feeling edged out Washington Amid the loud buzz of development that has resounded through the Washington area in recent years, attracting young people in droves, older people such as 80-year-old Jackie Parham say their voices are increasingly drowned out. Many are longtime residents who persisted in the District through grittier, more-dangerous decades. Now, they fear that the city they helped revitalize is slipping away. At her local Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting Wednesday night, Parham listened to a presentation for a new TGI Fridays proposed for Columbia Heights. The restaurant, which proposes to have karaoke music and disc jockeys and to stay open until 2 a.m.,
would be directly under her home in the Samual Kelsey Apartments, a senior residence on 14th Street NW. “I have trouble sleeping,” Parham told the commission. “I would like for them to close at 12 o’clock.” From 2009 to 2012, the Washington area had the highest average annual net gain of millennials — people ages 25 to 34 — of any large U.S. metropolitan area, according to a new Brookings Institution analysis. And although some empty nesters are also moving to the area’s revitalized urban corridors, most of the District’s population growth in the past decade has been spurred by people in their 20s and 30s. Now, new condominium units are increasingly marketed to young people. New boutiques carry clothing in tiny sizes and hipster styles. New bike lanes share space with car lanes. And new restaurants keep their inside lights frustratingly dim and the music deafeningly loud. “It’s a shame to live here and not even go out to eat because the

She also feels squeezed out by the offerings at new shops. “There used to be, all along Connecticut, stores that had a nice range of sizes and a nice range of tastes,” Rieffel said. “Not being 19, I don’t like close-ﬁtting clothes,
and you unfortunately can’t ﬁnd that around here anymore.” In Cleveland Park, a 50-year-old service road along four blocks of Connecticut Avenue NW has become the focus of a generational clash. A group of largely younger residents seeks to replace the service road with a wider sidewalk that would allow for outdoor cafe seating and provide more space for pedestrians. An informal neighborhood survey showed opinion divided loosely by generation: 77 percent of residents younger than 45 want the service lane changed; 60 percent of those 45 and older want to keep it as is. William Frey, the senior fellow
at Brookings’ Metropolitan Policy Program who did the analysis on millennials moving to D.C., said such clashes are “part of the price of prosperity” as more young people move into an area. “Community leaders and developers need to figure out how to make the other parts of the community good with it and how to draw them in,” he said. One solution is to prioritize development that caters to several generations at once, said Donna Butts, executive director of Generations United, a national nonproﬁt

But for Jackie Parham, who is already bothered by the noise from a bar across the street, the prospect of a hopping new establishment right below her apartment is hardly an example of harmonious generational integration. “I l i ke to say I have t wo T Vs , a nd m y T V out s ide i s better than inside,” she said.

A Sound Settlement? After testimony from supporters and detractors of the proposed TGI Fridays in Columbia Heights, the Advisory Neighborhood Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to support a settlement agreement. The restaurant could keep its late hours and pursue a live entertainment endorsement, but it would have to adhere to a promise to soundproof the space. D.C. Council member Jim Graham said he will push for the settlement agreement to include language that would halt the amplified music if the soundproofing in the 8,000-square-foot space is inadequate.

Virginia State coach Latrell Scott talks during a news conference Monday.
The Redskins dropped to 3-7 on the season with Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The defending NFC East champs are in last place in the division.
Not Much Worth Keeping Missing the playoffs this season isn’t the worst part for the Washington Redskins. It’s that the roster has only five players truly worth keeping next year. Quarterback Robert Griffin III, running back Alfred Morris, receiver Pierre Garcon, tight end Jordan Reed and By Rick left tackle Trent Snider Williams are foundation players. Notice the defense doesn’t have one? Nose tackle Barry Cofield, linebackers Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan and cornerback DeAngelo Hall are good, but the team could play on without them. Special teams will likely face a total makeover, too. After four seasons, coach Mike Shanahan has only a handful of playmakers despite turning over nearly the entire roster. The defense and special teams are barren of All Pros. Old Mother Hubbard had more in her cup-
boards than Shanahan has. And it might not even be Shanahan’s roster next year. Let’s see how this season ﬁnishes before forecasting coaches, but owner Dan Snyder can’t waste another year with the same miserable ending. If Grifﬁn’s shelf life is short, it’s best to change coaches because this current regime has no answers. It’s not economically feasible to dump a roster and start anew. There are only so many draft picks and premier free agents that can make a difference. Teams feel like they’re saddled with roughly the same major players each year. But this time, the ﬁnal weeks will be for player and coaches evaluations. Sadly, fan favorites London Fletcher and Santana Moss are probably playing their ﬁnal games for Washington.

It’s time for young upgrades. Same goes for the interior offensive line, safety Brandon Meriweather, punter Sav Rocca, receiver Josh Morgan, and tight ends Fred Davis and Niles Paul. The Redskins’ 3-7 free fall (that likely will end no better than 6-10) isn’t just about Grifﬁn recovering from offseason knee surgery, though he’s still not playing at his 2012 form. It’s the lack of overall talent and playmakers that’s preventing the team from sealing victories. Maybe the Redskins settled

for some lesser players because the $36 million salary cap sanction prevented upgrades. But the Redskins were hoping for more than this roster could deliver. There was no way the line could protect Grifﬁn playing more as a pocket passer. The secondary wouldn’t be able to withstand facing so many top quarterbacks. The Redskins went with Plan B too often and now have no answers to stopping opposing offenses. Grifﬁn can’t bail out the defense this year. A second rebuilding wave with only one division title and no playoff victories means Shanahan will be asking for several more years. Really, how long will it take — eight years, maybe 10? The bitter truth about this roster is something the Redskins must accept if they want to get better. They’re not a Super Bowl contender. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978.

Virginia St. Looking Into Fight College Football Virginia State football coach Latrell Scott says there was a “rush to judgment” after a fight at last week’s CIAA championship luncheon left Winston-Salem State’s quarterback injured and caused Saturday’s game to be canceled. “I acknowledge that we had one young man who made a bad decision, as young men sometimes do,” Scott said Monday during a news conference attended by many team members and some parents. Trojans running back Lamont Daniel Britt has been charged with misdemeanor assault inﬂicting serious injury in the fight involving WSSU’s Rudy Johnson. Scott said four Trojans players were questioned after the incident, but Britt is the only player to have been charged. Citing the ongoing investigations, the school declined to comment on what precipitated the ﬁght. The CIAA, which decided to cancel the game, also declared Virginia State ineligible for postseason play. Virginia State President Keith T. Miller said the school is cooperating with local authorities and conducting its own investigation. He said he hopes to have the results of the probe “in the next week.” HANK KUR Z JR. (AP)

Sports TV Lineup NBA (7:30 P.M., NBATV) LeBron James, who is shooting 62.2 percent from the field, and the Miami Heat host the Atlanta Hawks, who have won four of their past five games. COLLEGE HOOPS (8 P.M., ESPN) With No. 11 Memphis now a member of the American Athletic Conference, big nonconference games aren’t as important as they used to be for the Tigers. But a win over Marcus Smart and No. 7 Oklahoma State would still be nice for the résumé.
Wizards Lack a Finishing Touch This Season Wizards Wizards guard Bradley Beal is confused when he looks at the standings and sees his team tied with Milwaukee at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. “We thought it would be the opposite, if anything,” Beal said of the Wizards’ 2-7 record. “I think we’re still high-spirited, because we know we’re capable of winning.” An inability to ﬁnish is the primary reason for the Wizards’ poor
start. The latest defeat — a 10396 overtime loss to the Cavaliers on Saturday — continued a troubling trend. The Wizards blew a 14-point second-half lead against Philadelphia, a 10-point lead with three minutes left in Oklahoma City and a 15-point ﬁrst-half lead against Cleveland. Beal gave the Wizards an 87-82 lead over the Cavaliers with 3 minutes 4 seconds left, but they surrendered a 6-0 run, regained the lead, lost it again, tied the score

and collapsed in overtime. Washington is 1-3 in games in which it led or trailed by ﬁve points with ﬁve minutes remaining. “It’s very upsetting,” reserve guard Garrett Temple said. “Nothing more you can say except you’re tired of saying the same thing every time: ‘We’re there. We’re there.’
Eventually, you got to get across the hump.” The Wizards lost their ﬁrst 12 games last season but had a builtin excuse because John Wall was sidelined with a stress injury in his left knee and Nene was working himself back into shape from plantar fasciitis. T his season, t he Wizards have had their primary pieces but the results in crunch time have been lacking. M I C H A E L L E E (THE WASHINGTON POST )

League Reviewing Ref Incident Redskins The Washington Redskins and the NFL are reviewing an incident in which a game official allegedly directed profane words at left tackle Trent Williams. “You just can’t use that type of language to get your point across,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. Williams said he was called vulgar names by ofﬁcial No. 81 — which was umpire Roy Ellison — during a Redskins possession late
in the second quarter of Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Eagles. Other players said they heard the words, and a replay shows Ellison gesturing at Williams while walking backward just before a snap, with Williams, quarterback RobWilliams ert Grifﬁn III and tight end Niles Paul turning to look back at Ellison. Shanahan said he has spoken
to the players involved. Some of the linemen were wearing microphones, which the league can use to review what happened. “I feel very strongly about words that were used to our players,” Shanahan said, “because you have a number of players that said they heard it. I’m disappointed in what had happened, but that’s probably all I can discuss at this point.” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the incident was “under review.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

Looking for a gentler introduction to “high-intensity interval training” than the classes profiled below? Leslie Sansone’s “Walk to the Hits: Radio Remixes” ($15) relies on bursts of jogging in place to spike heart rates. And if that’s too much impact, Sansone reminds her viewers, then just power walk. The 45-minute program gussies up a 3-mile stroll with grapevines, arm movements, kicks and other easy-to-follow aerobics choreography.
Here, You Grit and Bear It Three high-intensity workouts from the creators of Bodypump come to Washington
TEDDY WOLFF PHOTOS (FOR EXPRESS)
“Run and dodge!” Sarah Hippert roared, whipping her students into a frenzied dash. Suddenly she gave the order to halt and demanded squat jumps, lunges and pushups. Then the whole routine repeated again and again. When it seemed like the group at the YMCA Anthony Bowen (ymcadc .org) was on the verge of collapse, Hippert yelled out one more command: “Stop and recover.” And that was just the warmup for Les Mills Grit Cardio, a new workout from the international ﬁtness company that’s developed many of the most popular formats in gyms today, including Bodypump, which is taught at Gold’s Gym, Sport & Health and countless other health clubs in the D.C. area. The Les Mills Grit series — Cardio, Strength and Plyo — is designed to introduce the masses to “high-intensity interval training.” Often shortened to HIIT, this athletic style is behind such trends as CrossFit and P90X and can produce better results faster than typical workouts. The problem? Many instructors throw together random moves and don’t understand recovery, which can lead to bad experiences, or even injury. What Les Mills does, says Erin Myers, the company’s East Coast marketing specialist, is develop classes that are safe and effective. In a Les Mills Grit session, “every time you take a rest, it’s strategically planned, and the range of motion is planned,” she says.
Instructor Sarah Hippert keeps the energy high at a Les Mills Grit Cardio workout by moving from pushups to sprints.
That approach appealed to Angela Meyer, the D.C. regional director of group exercise for the YMCA, which is why she arranged the program’s District debut this fall. “This isn’t somebody just making up stuff,” says Meyer, who appreciates the structure and quality control of Les Mills offerings. At the end of each 30-minute class, she knows exactly how students will feel: “If you do it to your fullest potential, you’re worn out.” Whether it’s Cardio (just body weight moves), Strength (with barbells) or Plyo (which gives students a step to jump over), all Les Mills Grit Series workouts are designed to raise heart rates and tax muscles to the beat of a thumping soundtrack. “The music is timed so perfectly, I can’t give them a break,” Hippert says not-so-apologeti-

cally about the constant barrage of moves she throws at students. Instructors make up for the pain by acting like coaches who just want to see students triumph. During Hippert’s class, after
an exhausting series of leaping squats, hopping pushups, sprints and lunges left people gasping for air, she got them back in the game by reminding them, “You’ve got to play in the second half to win.”
Instead of holding drop-in Les Mills Grit classes for members, Arlington’s True Health and Wholeness (2444 26th Road South; 571-421-2774, true-hw .com) offers seven-week sessions ($385). Folks will be tested before and after the twicea-week program to get a snapshot of their results. “They can look at how much higher they can jump and how much faster they can run,” says True’s Kate Finamore, who recommends the program only to people who are looking for a challenge. “If you’re coming to this, you’re going to smash yourself,” she says. V.H.
Arnold Gaither, another YMCA instructor, says his ﬁrst experience with Les Mills Grit reminded him of winter conditioning from his days as a college football player. So he borrows from the techniques that worked for him back then. “When someone’s given their max effort, I go over and ask for one more,” says Gaither, who offers a palm for students to high-ﬁve as they jump. The motivational component makes it feel like personal training, said Camille Sabbakhan, 43, after ﬁnishing a Strength workout that had her hoisting weights above her head, squatting forever and completing a ridiculous number of burpees. “The intensity of the exercise with the minimal recovery pushes you beyond your comfort level,” Sabbakhan said. That’s why sticking with class, she added, requires showing some grit. VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Enroll With the Punches
The new health-care law is affecting employer plans. Here’s what to expect. It’s annual enrollment time, the autumn period when many people with job-based health insurance ante up for another year. ¶ Although news reports have fixated on the problems with the online health marketplaces that launched Oct. 1, for the vast majority of people, that’s a nonissue. If they get insurance through a job at a company that has at least 50 employees, they probably won’t be using the marketplaces, also called exchanges. ¶ That doesn’t mean people with employer-based plans are unaffected by the health law. As employers adjust plans to meet new requirements and try to reduce their costs, people can expect to see changes next year.
Overall, premium increases will be moderate in 2014, averaging 5.2 percent, according to a 2013 employer survey about planned health-care changes by the human resources consultant Towers Watson. But employers may raise rates disproportionately for spouses and dependents, the survey found. The health law requires plans to cover dependent children up to age 26, and most plans cover spouses too. But employers continue to try to minimize those costs by making it financially less attractive to employees to cover their family members. They may charge separately for each child on a plan, for example, or add a surcharge for covering a spouse who is also offered insurance through his or her own job. Some, such as UPS, have moved to cut off coverage entirely to spouses who have access to insurance through their own jobs.
In the Towers Watson survey, 34 percent of employers said they planned to increase the employee share of the premium for spouse and dependent coverage by 5 percentage points or more in 2014. Last year, 21 percent planned such big increases. In contrast, 22 percent of employers said they would increase the worker’s share for employee-only coverage by 5 percentage points or more. “Everyone wants to make sure they’re not picking up the cost of covering other dependents,” says Julie Stone, a senior consultant at Towers Watson. Another change deals with the so-called Cadillac plans — those that cost more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family.
The average premium increases likely in 2014, a moderate hike, according to a 2013 employer survey about planned healthcare changes by the human resources consultant Towers Watson. The increase was projected to be 5.9 percent in 2013. (K AISER HEALTH NEWS)
The health law requires plans to cover dependent children up to age 26, and most plans cover spouses too. But employers continue to try to minimize those costs.
In 2018, these policies will incur an excise tax of 40 percent on the amount that premiums exceed those totals. Stone says 60 percent of employers surveyed expect to trigger the tax if they don’t adjust their plans, and some are beginning to make changes in 2014 to ratchet back on generous coverage. For employees, that will generally mean higher deductibles and copayments or coinsurance, not to mention a continued shift to account-based plans — high deductible plans paired with a health savings account or health reimbursement arrangement from the employer that the worker can use to cover out-of-pocket costs. More than half of employers offer such plans in 2013, according to an annual employer survey by the human resources consulting ﬁrm Aon Hewitt, and another 30 percent are considering doing so in the next ﬁve years. A growing number of employers are offering these plans as the only option. To encourage employees to Continued on page E4

Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent program of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan health policy research and communications organization not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.
Increasingly, employers are i ncor porat i ng t he f i na ncia l rewards into the premium itself rather than giving employees a cash payment, says Chris Renz of human resources consultant Mercer. “It puts a lot more dollars at stake,” Renz says. “Instead of a one-time $100 reward, you might see an annual $500 difference in premiums.” Workers who don’t like what their employer is offering can shop for coverage on the state exchanges. But they won’t be eligible for subsidies unless their employer plan is considered unaffordable or inadequate under the health law. A plan is deemed unaffordable if employee-only coverage costs more than 9.5 percent of household income, and inadequate if it pays less than 60 percent on average of allowed medical expenses. Since employers typically subsidize about 80 percent of the cost of coverage, most employer plans are going to be a better deal for employees than unsubsidized coverage on an exchange, Rosenberg says. In addition, by paying the premium with pre-tax dollars, employees reduce their taxable income, he says. M I C H E L L E A N D R E W S ( K A I S E R HEALTH NEWS)

select them, “the high-deductible plan is often subsidized to a greater degree than other types of plan,” says Craig Rosenberg, Aon Hewitt’s practice leader for health and welfare beneﬁts administration. Employees should also expect to see a continued emphasis on wellness and health management activities, including ﬁnancial incentives for completing health risk assessments and keeping blood pressure, cholesterol and weight within recommended ranges.
How Does the Health Law Affect Federal Employees’ Health Benefits? Open enrollment season began Nov. 11 for the approximately 8 million federal workers and their dependents who receive health-care coverage through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program or FEHB. The 2010 Affordable Care Act calls for some changes in that coverage. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about how the measure will affect federal workers’ health insurance. I work at a federal agency and am enrolled in FEHB. Does the Affordable Care Act require me to purchase health insurance on the law’s new online marketplaces, known as exchanges? No, you do not have to buy coverage on the marketplace. You can stay with FEHB. But if you want to shop for a health plan on the exchange, you will not qualify for a subsidy because the federal government pays up to 75 percent of the cost of your FEHB coverage.
I work on Capitol Hill. Do I have to purchase coverage through the exchanges? Yes. A provision of the health
law, originally authored by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, requires that, if you are a member of Congress or work on a lawmaker’s personal staff, you must obtain your health coverage through the online insurance marketplace. And, according to a recent ruling from the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, whether or not you are employed in the D.C. Metro area, you must purchase coverage on the District of Columbia small business exchange. “Given the location of Congress in the District of Columbia, OPM has determined that the DC SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program) … administered by the
I work on a lawmaker’s personal staff but am eligible for and am considering retirement. How will the timing of my retirement affect my health insurance coverage? If you meet the congressional rules for retirement and retire before Jan. 1, 2014, you will never go into the exchange. If you do go into the exchange and then retire, you will have FEHB coverage in retirement.
D.C. Health Benefit Exchange Authority, is the appropriate SHOP from which members of Congress and designed congressional staff will purchase health insurance in order to receive a government contribution,” the rule states. For the 2014 plan year, members of Congress and their designated staffs must pick from options in the DC SHOP’s “gold” level of coverage, according to OPM. The enrollment period coincides with FEHB open season, which runs from Nov. 11 to Dec. 9. Coverage will be effective Jan. 1. The DC SHOP offers several health plans with nationwide coverage. A member of Congress or a designated staff member could decline the contribution if they wish. Since some Capitol Hill staffers split their time between working on a committee staff and a member’s personal staff, OPM asked lawmakers to decide by this month which aides are designated as personal staff.
I’ve heard about some legislative proposals that would repeal the current federal subsidy for lawmakers and other public ofﬁcials. What are those proposals? During the recent debate over how to end the federal government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., pushed a measure that would have required members of Congress, their staffs, the president and vice president, and political appointees to purchase coverage on the exchange without the federal government subsidy. Vitter has said he will continue to push for the amendment. And he has a separate bill that would require members of Congress to make public which staff members they have exempted from the exchanges. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, RW.Va., proposed similar legislation in the House, but her bill would not take away the federal contribution for Capitol Hill staff. MARY AGNES CAREY (KAISER HEALTH NEWS)

Mind Your Medicare Seniors should watch for plan changes and make adjustments With so much fuss and frustration over the open enrollment for the health-care marketplaces, some people might be missing important information about another open-enrollment season. O p en en rol l ment for t he exchanges is overlapping and overshadowing the importance of the Medicare open-enrollment period, which started Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 7. It is during this period that those covered by Medicare can change their health plan and prescription drug coverage for 2014. Medicare is still a complicated system that requires recipients to pay close attention: Part A is hospital insurance, Part B is medical insurance, Part C is Medicare Advantage (offered by private companies approved by Medicare such as an HMO) and Part D is prescription drug coverage. “If you are happy with your coverage, you don’t have to change,”
said Frederic Riccardi, director of client services at the nonprofit Medicare Rights Center. “But plans can change cost and beneﬁts every year.” By now you should have received your “Annual Notice of Change,” which lists the changes in your plan. Review the document. It will compare the beneﬁts in 2014 with those you’ve received this year. In addition to your health-care choices, pay particular attention to your prescription drug plan and the list of covered medications. Insurers change the drugs they cover, their procedures, their rates and sometimes their networks of doctors. But don’t just focus on prices. Balance affordability with coverage, Riccardi said. Make sure the medications you need are still covered. Check to see if under your plan you need prior authorization or if there are quality limits. Only 6 in 10 seniors said they (or someone on their behalf) review their plan options every year, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. In another study, Kaiser found
Forget These Not: Here are some things you should know for the Medicare open enrollment. If you’re having trouble understanding your choices or you have questions about your changes, call 1-800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227) or visit medicare.gov. A
Only six in 10 seniors said they (or someone on their behalf) review their plan options every year, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. One-fourth said they rarely or never review their options. (T WP)

If you fall into Medicare’s prescription drug coverage gap known as the “doughnut hole,” you will get discounts of about 53 percent on covered brand-name drugs and 28 percent discounts on generics. This price break is the result of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions to close this gap.

There are more high-quality plans to choose from. In fact, you may have received a letter from Medicare stating that your plan has received less than three stars (on a scale of one to five) for three consecutive years. The letter will let you know that you can go on the Plan Finder and change to a plan with more stars. Go to medicare.gov and search for “Medicare Plan Finder.”

that between 2006 and 2010 only 13 percent of all Medicare Part D enrollees switched plans during the annual enrollment period. Here’s the thing: Had those folks switched plans at some point between 2006 and 2010, they were likely to end up in a plan that lowered their premiums. Yes, there’s a lot of information to digest. But it is what it is, and letting the complication lull you into inertia can result in your being stuck for another year in plans that don’t meet your needs. MICHELLE SIN-

Average prescription drug prices and Medicare health-plan premiums remain stable for next year. Most people don’t pay a monthly premium for Part A because they have at least 40 quarters of Medicare-covered employment. Part A pays for inpatient hospital, skilled nursing facility and some home health-care services. If you pay a premium, you’ll see a drop of $15 to $426, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Beneficiaries who have between 30 and 39 quarters of coverage may buy into Part A at a reduced monthly premium rate, which is $234 for 2014, a decrease of $9. The standard Medicare Part B monthly premium remains the same at $104.90 a month.

The Couch Surfer Has Wiped Out My fiance’s brother has been crashing on our couch for two weeks now, and it’s getting old. He’s trying to find an affordable apartment in the area now that his old lease ended and prices went up. He keeps awful hours because of his jobs (works at a bar) and always wakes us up when he comes in even though he tries not to. I just want our space back. But he is also the best man in our wedding so I feel bad kicking him out. BEN CLAASSEN III
FRUSTR ATED WITH FUTURE BRO-IN-L AW
Feeling-of-Security System My apartment was burglarized while I was away about three months ago. I have insurance (thanks, Dad!), so the financial loss isn’t significant. But I can’t shake my anxiety. I hate sleeping there now, and although I know that it’s unlikely someone will come back, that doesn’t make me feel any better. I feel panicky a lot when I’m in there alone. I try to remind myself that it’s not logical that lightning will strike twice, but I feel horrible and am considering moving. HELP! I’m sorry for the feelings of violation this must have brought. They’re understandable, but the fact that they haven’t improved after three months means you could use some help. Yes, you could move, but to the extent that this was somewhat traumatic in general, there’s no guarantee that you’ll feel more secure just
because you’ve got a different set of locks to look at. A cognitive-behavioral therapist can help you develop a plan to feel better, not only by working through your feelings, but also by creating steps of mental and physical exercises to systematically lessen your anxiety.
Given that this guy will literally be standing up for you at your wedding, you’re right that kicking him out is out. It also sounds like he’s doing his best to not be intrusive. So you help him, because that’s what family does. But it doesn’t mean indeﬁnitely or without boundaries. There should be a clear deadline (for his own good) as to how long he’s going to stay before enacting Plan B. And Plan B needs to be clear as well, whether it’s crashing with someone else, lowering his apartment standards or at least paying you rent. Your ﬁance should do this negotiating while you focus on starting your relationship with your brother-in-law on the right foot.

back and lunge. They hit the ﬂoor with their hammers, then rotate as they stand back up so they can clap the two hammers together. And the class wouldn’t be complete without Thor core. Try sitting on the ground, but leaning far back
Thor needed to prove he was a worthy warrior before he could lift his famous hammer. Students taking Washington Sports Clubs’ “Thor’s Thunder Workout” class don’t have to work quite so hard to pick up a similar weapon — they each get a foam replica as soon as they walk into the room. The tough part comes next.
CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON (FOR EXPRESS)
What it is: There are several stunning visuals in Marvel’s “Thor” movies. But the most impressive is actor Chris Hemsworth’s physique, says instructor Libby Linden Rubin. That’s the inspiration for this 45-minute class designed to chisel every muscle in the body. The kickboxing and mixed martial arts movements aren’t just for “ﬁghting enemies and w rongdoers,” Rubin says: They’ll also help vanquish calories.

themed class, students don’t just pulse up and down — they take their hammers in both hands and smack them on the ground and then lift them above their heads. Students have to get comfortable with that prop. Soon, they’re doing speed skater jumps and switching the hand holding it with each side-to-side leap. (“Good thing the hammer is light,” said Linda Lau-

movie’s theme music makes you want to take a seat, you’re in luck. The warm-up goes heavy on squats. Because this is a Thor-
rienzo, 49, of Damascus, Md., after dropping hers at last week’s class.) When it’s time for the punching segments, students aren’t just jabbing and hooking with a ﬁst. They’re slicing the air with their hammers. That helps prepare them for Rubin’s favorite part: Like in the movies, Thor needs to partner up to succeed. So one person cranks out pushups while another jumps over his or her arms. In another exercise, they get back-to-

and keeping the legs up. Then add taps with the hammer on either side to target the obliques.
Workout: “Now I have a huge amount of respect for all demigods,” said Jamell Swan, 32, of North Bethesda, who predicted he would feel sore everywhere. The hammers aren’t heavy — not even Rubin’s specialty one that makes thunder sound effects — but the routine doesn’t require much weight to test endurance, strength and balance. It had the power to make Nancy Cohen, 58, feel superhuman. “This got out my aggressive tendencies,” the Bethesda resident said. “I’ve never done that many pushups.” VICK Y HALLET T (E XPRESS)

Start! Hammer Time Learn the Ropes People who can hoist barbells loaded with hundreds of pounds can also raise lots of money. That’s the idea behind District CrossFit’s Charity Pro-Am this Saturday. The event (10 a.m., 1525 Half St. SW; dcfproam.eventbrite.com), which will benefit the TAPS Navy Yard Relief Fund, is bringing together a half-dozen CrossFit Games athletes. They’ll demo a workout, and then coach folks — who can participate for $50 — on how they can do the same moves. Spectating is free. “Working with other athletes, you can see where you want to go, and what you can push toward,” says Jenn Jones, above. The two-time CrossFit Games competitor and former Washingtonian is coming in from Texas to participate. Don’t have as far to travel? There’s an Uber discount available.

A Breakup Song You have relationships with certain songs, albums, artists. Maybe it’s a record that got you through a bad time. Maybe it’s something you played at your wedding. They belong to you, you think. Monday, British progressive folkrock singer and guitarist Roy Harper, 72, was in court facing charges that he sexually assaulted a girl younger than 13 back in the 1970s. Harper denies the charges. Who is this old By Shauna guy? Well, he’s part of Miller the reason Nick Drake and Pink Floyd and Fairport Convention sounded the way they did. He’s part of the reason Fleet Foxes and Bright Eyes and Joanna Newsom sound like they do. He was a pioneer of the stuff that’s the foundation of indie rock today. He also wrote a song that was “mine,” 1971’s “Me and My Woman.” It’s 13 minutes long and is the theme of the nonsense land where people in love live, where “He spreads her a shelter/ She takes the tall skies/ As they helter skelter/ Along the same sighs.” People still love R. Kelly and Chris Brown. You decide how to reconcile the artist with the art. I’d usually be mad about this latest news, disgusted on a political level. But I loved that song. I felt love in it. More than anything, I’m sad that I have to break up with it. Connect with Shauna and Sound Bets on Twitter: @Shaunajmiller.
Despite a great cast, Amazon’s streaming ‘Alpha House’ is too arch for its own good Television Review Garry Trudeau’s “Alpha House,” a half-hour comedy series that’s now streaming for your fickle platform pleasure on Amazon.com, is about four Republican senators who share a Capitol Hill townhouse. “Alpha House” looks good to
go at ﬁrst. It has the right cast, led by John Goodman; it has a studied understanding that modern comedy must put abject humiliation and awkwardness above all other forms of humor; it easily accommodates a series of boldface names who make cameo appearances as either characters or as themselves; and most of all, it has at its helm Trudeau, the “Doonesbury” creator who can lay claim to a formative work of TV political comedy (HBO’s ancient “Tanner ’88,” a collaboration with Robert Altman).
Mark Consuelos, John Goodman, Matt Malloy and Clark Johnson are the men of “Alpha House.”
Strangely, the one element “Alpha House” is missing is hilarity. The show is so tight — maybe too tight — that it starts to choke on its own power-tie premise in the ﬁrst three episodes. Part of “Alpha House’s” burden to bear is that it feels about 15 crucial minutes late to the raging bonfire that is now Washington parody. This territory is already well-scorched — lately by HBO’s cruelly unerring “Veep,” but also by Netﬂix’s stylish and utterly cynical “House of Cards” (meant to be
a drama, yet easily ingested as satire, like ABC’s “Scandal”), as well as the familiar, nightly whippings that Beltway and media culture receive from Jon Stewart. Like Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ vice president on “Veep,” the men of “Alpha House” each struggle to keep ahead of the Twittersphere’s
‘Alpha House’ is missing the hilarity. The show is so tight it starts to choke on its own power-tie premise. light-speed effect on politicavl currency; Goodman says that something has “gone virile” online; one senator has to call a staffer to ask what a “meme” is. “Alpha House” could be interpreted as ﬂattery to the Republicans as much as it can be seen as the insult the show ultimately intends to be. A f ter a l l, Trudeau and company are promoting the party’s fondest big-tent desires: Here’s a black guy, a gay-ish guy, a Latino guy, a fat Southern guy — it’s all the elephants in one room. Republicans should k now e xac t ly how to treat “Alpha House”: as a Valentine. HANK STUEVER (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Stay Classy, Students: It’s kind of a big deal that Boston’s Emerson College is changing the name of its school of communication. The college in Boston will rename the school — for one day only — the Ron Burgundy School of Communication on Dec. 4 to honor the fictitious television anchorman. Actor Will Ferrell, in character, is scheduled to share his path to journalism greatness with students with a news conference and film screening. (AP)

A Firebrand Author Dies Outspoken Nobel winner Doris Lessing wrote on feminism and colonialism
MARTIN CLEAVER (AP)
Novelist Doris Lessing, who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2007, died Sunday.
life. The novel covers a range of previously unmentionable female conditions — menstruation, orgasms and frigidity — and made Lessing an icon for women’s liberation. Published in Britain in 1962, the book was considered too inﬂammatory for publication France and Germany for another 14 years. When it was republished in China in 1993, 80,000 copies sold in two days.
Lessing was 88 when she won the Nobel prize, making her the oldest recipient of the award. Born Doris May Tayler on Oct. 22, 1919, in Persia (now Iran), Lessing moved to Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) at age 5 and lived there until she was 29. She is survived by her daughter Jean and granddaughters Anna and Susannah. DANICA KIRK A (AP)
When Doris Lessing won the 2007 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy described her as “that epicist of the female experience, who with skepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilization to scrutiny.” Here are some of her works: z “The Grass Is Singing” (1950): A tragic novel in which a white woman has an affair with a black man. z “The Golden Notebook” (1962): A groundbreaking novel that was an early inspiration to feminists. z “The Memoirs of a Survivor” (1974): A dark novel, set in a world falling apart, which Lessing described as an autobiography. z “Under My Skin” (1994): The first volume of her autobiography describes herself as a young girl in the Rhodesian countryside up until leaving 1949. z "Mara and Dann” (1999): A fable set in the distant future, thousands and thousands of years after a great ice age has destroyed civilization. z “On Cats” (2002): A book on the subtleties of feline existence.

Personal Portrait or Public Art? A legal tangle erupts over a Warhol painting of Farrah Fawcett Art Andy Warhol’s artwork has always sparked discussion, but one of his portraits of Farrah Fawcett is about to receive scrutiny of a different kind in a Los Angeles courtroom. Does one of Warhol’s depictions of Fawcett belong to her longtime lover, Ryan O’Neal, or should it join Actors Ryan O’Neal, left, and Farrah Fawcett attend a premiere in 1989.
its twin at her alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin? To decide the case, jurors will hear testimony and see evidence focused on Warhol and O’Neal’s friendship, his relationship with Fawcett and the actress’ ﬁnal wishes. The panel will likely get insight into Warhol’s creation of the Fawcett image, which was based on a Polaroid photo the artist took of the “Charlie’s Angels” star in 1980. The image, one of the main attractions in a 2011 exhibit at UT’s Blanton Museum of Art, features an unsmiling Fawcett looking out from the canvas. Warhol painted her lips red and her eyes green.
Jury selection in the trial is expected to begin this week, with O’Neal and possibly Fawcett’s “Charlie’s Angels” co-star Jaclyn Smith taking the witness stand. The case resumes on Wednesday. Fawcett decreed in her will that all her artwork go to the school, yet O’Neal insists that Warhol gave him a copy of the portrait as a gift. University of Texas’ lawyers contend O’Neal improperly removed the portrait from Fawcett’s condo after her death in 2009. O’Neal countersued the university, seeking the return another work, a napkin Warhol drew on and gave to Fawcett and the actor. ANTHONY McCARTNEY (AP)
Obituary When Doris Lessing was told in 2007 that she had won the Nobel Prize for literature, she retorted, “Oh Christ! I couldn’t care less.” That kind of response was typical of the author, who died Sunday after a long career that included 1962’s “The Golden Notebook,” which made her an icon of the women’s movement. Lessing’s work reﬂected her own journeys across the former British Empire. The cause of Lessing’s death at her home in London was not immediately disclosed. She was 94. Lessing explored topics ranging from colonial Africa to dystopian Britain, from the mystery of being female to the unknown worlds of science ﬁction. She remains best known for “The Golden Notebook,” in which heroine Anna Wulf uses four notebooks to bring together the separate parts of her disintegrating
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ (FOX) When Sal's Pizza burns down, the fire marshal (Patton Oswalt, left) assumes the owner torched the place, but Jake (Andy Samberg, right) disagrees and makes it his mission to clear Sal, even if he has to step out of his own jurisdiction.

“Simply re-orienting solar panels could shorten the amount of time it takes for them to pay for themselves.” — CHRISTOPHER MIMS AT QZ.COM debunks con-
ventional wisdom that states solar panels that face south produce the most electricity. Mims cites new research that suggests westfacing solar panels have the most impact, generating up to 2 percent more power over the course of the day. Science!
“I would think it would be hard to keep your tea in your glass — but at least scalding liquid wouldn’t be sloshing over the sides of your cup as you power-walk to work.” — ERIKA RAE AT CORE77.COM describes a new way to enjoy tea — by inhaling it as a vapor. The London-based Camellia’s Tea House introduced the concept at the 2013 Experimental Food Society Spectacular last week in England. Next step? Breathable wine. (Hey, we can dream.)
“It is impossible to contemplate a snake so large without wondering whether it would swallow a human.” — JACKSON LANDERS AT SLATE.COM scares the bejesus out of the Internet with tales of the world’s largest snake species, the green anaconda, which has been increasingly spotted in the Florida Everglades. Landers says the species, which is a nonvenomous constrictor, can grow so large it can swallow a Great Dane whole. Luckily, the snakes live mostly in the water, so as long as you’re not going on long swims in the swamp, you should be all right.
“Washingtonians should neither demand nor expect a refund every time we have to wait for single tracking.” — DAN MALOUFF AT BEYONDDC.COM cautions Metro riders about asking for refunds. After several service disruptions last week, Metro ofﬁcials decided to grant riders refunds for excessively long waits. Malouff warns, however, that Metro should use refunds wisely: No money could equal no service.

Uh-Oh. Scientology Is Training Astronauts Tom Cruise and John Travolta joined Scientology leaders on Sunday to dedicate a new building in Clearwater, Fla., the Tampa Bay Tribune reported. The seven-story Flag Building will house Scientology’s “Super Power” programs. Among many other amenities, the structure has an anti-gravity chamber and a large running track. “The programs are said to hone church members’ 57 senses, such as the ability to tell the temperature,” the Tribune wrote.

‘Design, and Me’ Kanye West spoke at the Harvard Graduate School of Design on Sunday. “I really do believe that the world can be saved through design,” he told the students, according to Stereogum. He also explained why he gives so many and such long interviews: “If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. … I’ve tasted what it means to create and be able to impact, and affect in a positive way.” (E XPRESS)

Taylor Swift told New York Magazine that she “heard from the guy that most of [album] ‘Red’ is about.” Though she didn’t name names, Internet speculation suggests the man in question is Jake Gyllenhaal. “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice,” Swift said. “Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy emails I got from this one dude.” (EXPRESS)
