A ‘cathartic’ way to heal BETHESDA Chris Stowe worked on a bomb squad during six deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Between tours he sought help for the headaches, anxiety, memory loss and other symptoms of trauma and brain injuries he suffered while being exposed to hundreds of blasts. He tried talk therapy, medication and a self-prescribed regimen of yoga and meditation, before finding some relief in an unexpected form: a white papiermache mask. During an art therapy session at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, he picked up a brush and painted something he had never been able to satisfactorily describe: how he felt. His mask showed two sides of himself: the calm exterior side-by-side with a monster beneath, filled with rage, his eyes and mouth brimming with bees. “If you imagine what a bees’ nest sounds like, the buzzing, almost surround sound,” he said. “This is how my head feels.”

Soldiers at Walter Reed make masks to show war’s hidden wounds

Former Navy SEAL and Walter Reed patient Rusty Noesner holds his mask, which shows the conflicted sense of self he felt while serving.

Nearly 350,000 U.S. service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries since 2001, according to the Defense Department. Thanks to modern body armor and military vehicles, many service members survive roadside bombs and improvised explosive devices, only to come home struggling to function. The invisible wounds of war can be difficult to diagnose and treat. But the military is finding that art, and mask-making in particular,

“No one wants to accept you have these emotions, this vulnerable side. … You don’t want to have those things in combat.” RUSTY NOESNER, a former Navy SEAL, who came to Walter Reed four years ago and used art therapy to help recover from combat

can spur the healing process. Art therapy, along with music and creative writing, are integral parts of treatment at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence at Walter Reed in Bethesda, which opened in 2010 to study and treat traumatic brain injury and the psychological conditions that often accompany it. Two dozen active service members come through each month for an intensive, four-week outpatient treatment program. During the first week, art therapist Melissa Walker gives each service member a blank mask. “There is something powerful in the mask,” Walker said. “It literally and figuratively encompasses the areas we are focused on here, both the physical and psychological.” For Stowe, years of talk therapy had not been very helpful. But with art, he did not worry about judgment, he said, and felt more in control of his emotions. He has good days and bad days, he said. Some days he still hears the bees buzzing in his head. “Those are the days that I paint,” he said. “It’s really cathartic. Whatever I was battling, it slowly fades away.” MICHAEL ALISON CHANDLER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

TRANSPORTATION As Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld heads into his second year leading the agency, he will shift focus from rebuilding the system’s debilitated tracks to railcar reliability, the source of a majority of delays for riders. Wiedefeld announced his post-SafeTrack agenda during a speech Wednesday at the National Press Club, where he marked his first anniversary with the region’s troubled transit agency and offered a progress report on Metro. He acknowledged the laundry list of problems that continue to plague the system — unreliable service, falling ridership, a $290 million budget shortfall and jurisdictional disputes over governance — but said he’s confident the agency is headed in the right direction. “Believe me, we have a very long way to go to turn Metro around,” Wiedefeld said. “But I know we are on the rise.” Wiedefeld’s theme for his second year, “Back2Good,” an initiative that will include a ramped-up railcar maintenance program,

Metro head says focus should shift to reliability

Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld says attention will turn to railcar reliability once SafeTrack work is finally completed.

is part of an effort to win back customers who have fled the system in droves in part due to chronic service disruptions and safety lapses. It’s not quite “SafeCar,” but Wiedefeld said the changes could have dramatic effects on the dayto-day experiences of Metro riders. About 60 percent of the rail delays experienced by customers are caused by problems with the trains themselves; fewer than 20 percent result from track issues. Wiedefeld plans to double the

number of the agency’s newest railcars — the 7000 series — and hasten the retirement of the 1000- and 4000-series, the oldest and least reliable in the fleet. Those cars are currently “bellied” in the middle of newer trains because of safety risks. Wiedefeld’s first year was marked by drastic measures to address degraded infrastructure: a system-wide shutdown in March to inspect and replace 600 fire-prone “jumper cables”; the year-long SafeTrack program aimed at restoring tracks to a state of good repair; and dozens of emergency inspections after a July derailment raised concerns about the condition of crossovers. During his speech, Wiedefeld reflected on some of those challenges, saying that he knew the decision to shutter the entire rail network for a full day would be a make-or-break moment during his tenure as general manager. “It was the most difficult decision I ever had to make in my 30-year career,” Wiedefeld said, “and also one of the easiest.” FAIZ SIDDIQUI A ND M A RTINE P OWER S (THE WASHINGTON POST)

McAuliffe upbeat about working with Trump VIRGINIA Gov. Terry McAuliffe was upbeat Wednesday about Virginia’s prospects for landing the new FBI headquarters building under the incoming Trump administration — despite the governor’s ties to Hillary Clinton, a close friend of McAuliffe’s who he described as done with politics. “I have known Donald Trump for 20 years, had dinner with him, golfed with him,” McAuliffe, a Democrat, said in an interview on WTOP’s “Ask the Governor” program. “When I ran [for governor] in ’09, he actually wrote me a $25,000 check. So I look forward to a productive relationship.” Before becoming governor, McAuliffe spent decades in the orbit of Clinton and her husband,

He said that he has not spoken with the president-elect, but that he is optimistic that Trump’s promise to boost military and infrastructure spending will benefit Virginia, the nation’s biggest recipient of Defense Department funding. “Defense spending, infrastructure — if we can work together on those things, we’re gonna have a good, healthy relationship,” he said. “The elections are over.

Ashes of Fidel Castro begin ceremonial trip across Cuba

OPEC agrees to cut output in bid to push up oil prices

Surrounded by white roses and drawn by a green military jeep, Fidel Castro’s ashes began a more than 500-mile journey Wednesday across the country he ruled for nearly 50 years. Thousands of soldiers and security agents saluted the 90-yearold leader’s remains as they rolled slowly out of Havana’s Plaza of the Revolution and the cortege made its way east into the countryside. Tens of thousands of Cubans lined the path of the funeral procession, which retraced the path of Castro’s triumphant march into Havana nearly six decades ago. The ashes will be interred Sunday, ending a nine-day period of mourning. (AP)

Breaking with years of inaction, OPEC agreed Wednesday to cut its oil output for the first time since 2008. The move effectively scraps its strategy of squeezing U.S. competition through high supply, a plan that had backfired by lowering prices and draining the cartel’s own economies. The reduction of 1.2 million barrels a day is significant, leaving OPEC’s daily output at 32.5 million barrels. OPEC President Mohammed Bin Saleh Al-Sada said non-OPEC nations are expected to pare an additional 600,000 barrels in daily production. The combined cut will raise prices somewhat for oil and, by extension, gas for cars. (AP)

A Somali-born student who carried out a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University may have been inspired by the Islamic State group and a former al-Qaeda leader, investigators said Wednesday.

Before crash, pilot told controllers fuel was out

INDUSTRY CHANGE

Cigarette maker debuts new product

COLOMBIA The pilot of the chartered plane carrying a Brazilian soccer team told air traffic controllers he had run out of fuel and desperately pleaded for permission to land before crashing into the Andes, according to a leaked recording of the final minutes of the doomed flight. In the sometimes chaotic exchange with the air traffic tower, the pilot of the British-built jet could be heard repeatedly requesting authorization to land. “Complete electrical failure, without fuel,” he said in the tense final seconds before the plane set off on a four-minute death spiral that ended with it slamming into a mountainside Monday night. A female controller could be heard giving instructions as the aircraft lost speed and altitude about 8 miles from Medellin’s international airport. Just before going silent, the pilot said he was flying at an altitude of 9,000 feet and made a final plea for a landing code: “Vectors, senorita. Landing vectors.” The recording, obtained Wednesday by Colombian media, appeared to confirm the accounts of a surviving flight attendant and a pilot flying nearby who overheard the exchange. These, along with the lack of an explosion

Leaked recording from jet carrying soccer team shows hectic exchange

A fan of Brazil’s soccer team Chapecoense mourns at a gathering Tuesday.

“I survived because I followed safety protocols. … I put my luggage between my legs to form the fetal position.” ERWIN TUMIRI, a crew member and one of five survivors of the crash in Colombia that resulted in 72 deaths

upon impact, pointed to a rare case of a jet crashing because it ran out of fuel. The plane was flying at its maximum range on the second leg of a trip scheduled to go from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia,

and then to Medellin. Authorities are avoiding singling out any one cause of the crash, which killed all but six of the 77 people on board, including members of Brazil’s Chapecoense soccer team traveling to Medellin. One of the initial survivors, a soccer player, later died. A full investigation is expected to take months and will review everything from the 17-year-old aircraft’s flight and maintenance history to the voice and instruments data in the black boxes recovered Tuesday at the crash site on a muddy hillside. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board was taking part in the investigation because the plane’s engines were made by an American manufacturer.

Tobacco manufacturer Philip Morris has launched a new alternative to cigarettes, Iqos, which electronically heats tobacco instead of burning it. Iqos is different from e-cigarettes, which deliver nicotine via water vapor and have not been successful in converting smokers. Philip Morris claims Iqos can give users 90 percent less toxins than traditional cigarettes and that trials have shown it can be a replacement for smoking, the BBC reported. The product is part of the company’s push to convert smokers to less-damaging products and eventually phase out conventional cigarettes. (EXPRESS)

German spy was gay porn actor, secret Islamist BERLIN Two weeks ago, German intelligence agents noticed an unusual participant in a chat room used as a digital hideout for Islamic militants. The man said he was a German spy and was offering to help Islamists infiltrate his agency and stage a strike. Agents lured him into a private chat, and he gave away so many details about the spy agency that they quickly identified him, arresting the 51-year-old the next day. The German citizen of Spanish descent, whose name has not been released, confessed to secretly converting to Islam in 2014. From there, his story took a stranger turn. The married father of four had used his online alias before — as recently as 2011 — as his stage name for acting in gay pornographic films. News of the case sparked a storm of outrage in Germany, with critics saying it raises serious questions about the country’s domestic spy agency. “[The agency] needs to tell us immediately what exactly happened and how it could happen that somebody like this was hired,” said Hans-Christian Strobele, who is on a government committee that oversees German intelligence services. One official said it was virtually impossible to protect against a breach like this because the man used multiple names and identities online. SOUAD MEKHENNET, ANTHONY FAIOLA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

But details were unclear — including whether 1,000 new jobs were being saved in the U.S. or whether that figure included 400 jobs the company agreed to preserve earlier this year under pressure from Indiana officials. Trump’s pick for treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, told CNBC that Trump called the CEO of Carrier’s parent company to say it was “important to keep jobs here.” Carrier is a unit of United Technologies Corp., which also owns Pratt & Whitney, a supplier of fighter jet engines that relies in part on U.S. military contracts.

Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence plan to visit the state today to unveil the plan alongside company officials. Keeping jobs from leaving the U.S. was a key Trump campaign pledge. “Great deal for workers!” he tweeted late Tuesday.

Prosecutor: Slain man was armed; shooting by police was justified CHARLOTTE, N.C. A prosecutor on Wednesday cleared a Charlotte police officer in the killing of a black man, and presented detailed evidence to rebut assertions that the slain man was unarmed. Officer Brentley Vinson was justified in opening fire on Keith

Lamont Scott and won’t face charges, Charlotte-Mecklenburg District Attorney Andrew Murray said. In a news conference, Murray produced evidence that Scott was armed with a handgun and said that the officer who killed him feared Scott would shoot.

At the news conference, Murray showed a store surveillance video taken just before the incident. It showed the outline of what appeared to be a holstered gun on Scott’s ankle. Murray said Scott’s DNA was found on a Colt .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun found at the scene. Murray also shared a Facebook conversation from the man who said he sold the stolen gun to Scott and recognized him after the shooting. Murray also released his report online and asked the public to review his findings before protesting. Two nights of protests after the shooting resulted in millions of dollars in damage, a fatal shooting and dozens of injuries to police officers. (AP/TWP)

Trump’s ‘swamp’ people By picking politicians, billionaires for Cabinet, he abandons promise to purge Washington

Wilbur Ross

Steven Mnuchin

Betsy DeVos

Elaine Chao

As a candidate, Trump said Wall Street had created “tremendous problems” for the country. He included the CEO of Goldman Sachs in a commercial that accused global financial powers of having “robbed our working class.” Mnuchin and Ross also have financial links to Trump’s White House bid, with Mnuchin having led the campaign’s fundraising. Trump repeatedly bragged that his personal wealth — he mostly self-funded his campaign during the primaries — meant he would not be beholden to donors who might expect their financial contributions to be repaid with powerful jobs or insider access. “I can’t be bought,” Trump said during the campaign. “I won’t owe anybody anything.” Trump’s transition team brushed aside questions about whether there are inconsistencies between the presidentelect’s campaign rhetoric and his Cabinet picks. “These are experts who know

POLITICS Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” in the nation’s capital. Instead, he’s diving right in. So far, the president-elect is tapping people with deep ties to Washington and Wall Street as he fills out his Cabinet, turning to two power centers he vilified during his White House campaign as greedy, corrupt and out of touch with Americans. His choices have won praise from Republicans relieved by his more conventional choices, but could risk angering voters who rallied behind his calls for upending the political system. Two of Trump’s early picks are wealthy financial industry insiders with ties to the kinds of institutions he railed against as a candidate. Elaine Chao, his choice for transportation secretary and an accomplished political figure in her own right, is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — blending family and political power in a way Trump fiercely criticized campaign rival Hillary Clinton for doing. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s selection for attorney general, has spent two decades in the Senate, and Tom Price, his health and human services nominee, is a six-term congressman. The gap between Trump’s campaign rhetoric and his governing decisions is most striking regarding his emerging economic team. On Wednesday, he announced that he planned to nominate former Goldman Sachs executive Steven Mnuchin as his treasury secretary and billionaire investor Wilbur Ross to lead the Commerce Department.

WASHINGTONPOST.COM POWER POST

Ways they got wealthy Steven Mnuchin, nominee for treasury secretary: He invested in the wreckage of the housing crisis, scooping up the troubled bank IndyMac and turning a $1.6 billion profit in under a year as millions of Americans endured foreclosure. Wilbur Ross, nominee for commerce secretary: The billionaire bought up struggling steel, auto and coal firms in the industrial Midwest at a steep discount and sold them for steep profits, even as factory and mining jobs disappeared. Betsy DeVos, nominee for education secretary: The wealthiest of Trump’s Cabinet nominees thus far, DeVos married into the family that started the sales company Amway. Elaine Chao, nominee for transportation secretary: She is the offspring of a Chinese shipping magnate, in addition to serving on the boards of Wells Fargo bank, Dole Food and News Corp., the parent of Fox News.

how to win,” spokesman Jason Miller said Wednesday. By picking billionaires, as well as a smattering of millionaires, for his Cabinet, Trump is asking voters to trust that privileged insiders can help a stressed and dispirited middle class — even though he promised he would change that dynamic. Trump and other Republicans spent months warning voters that a possible Clinton administration would be lined with Wall Street insiders, campaign donors and other special interest hires. But GOP officials have raised no such concerns about Trump’s picks. If anything, some Republicans appear relieved. “The picks so far have been fantastic and well-received by Republicans and conservatives of all stripes,” said Cesar Conda, the former chief of staff for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. “Trump is unifying the party, which is essential to getting his agenda enacted.” JULIE PACE AND JOSH BOAK (AP)

Death toll reaches eight in cave-in of Polish copper mine

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) won an eighth term leading the Democratic caucus Wednesday, prevailing in a contest that became a vote of confidence in her continued stewardship and an early proxy battle over the future of the Democratic Party. Pelosi easily beat Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), a seven-term lawmaker who launched an upstart bid to lead House Democrats two weeks ago in response to the party’s disappointing November election results and concerns that Democrats have become out of touch with working-class voters in key swing states. But Pelosi’s margin of victory, 134 votes to 63 for Ryan, signaled a large degree of discontent with her leadership after 14 years atop the caucus and, more broadly, with the Democratic policy agenda that many lawmakers say has grown stale. While she cleared her self-declared margin of victory, a two-thirds majority, many Democrats were stunned that almost a third of the caucus was willing to vote for a backbench lawmaker with no major policy or political experience. Many were left wondering whether a more seasoned Democrat could have toppled Pelosi, with several privately suggesting these next two years would have to be Pelosi’s last as leader.

Chilling message: Baylor sex scandal doesn’t deter hire pattern of sexual violence by a football player, to take action in response to reports of a sexual assault by multiple football players, and to take action in response to a report of dating violence.” Evidently, that did not disqualify McCaw from landing the same position at Liberty, in Lynchburg, Va. Fifty-three percent of the roughly 15,000 students who attend Liberty are women. How were they supposed to feel when they woke up Tuesday morning? How should their parents feel? Liberty’s news release announcing McCaw’s hire touted Baylor’s five national titles, 58 Big 12 championships and six consecutive bowl games for the football team on his watch. Is that competitive history supposed to matter more than the reason McCaw had to leave Baylor? “If I had a daughter at Liberty University, I would certainly be concerned,” said Alexander Zalkin, Hernandez’s lawyer. “It almost speaks to this general culture of apathy at universities to this issue. The reason we’re in this mess to begin with is, universities did not take this issue of sexual assault seriously.

In the next two weeks, lawyers for Ian McCaw are scheduled to respond to a lawsuit by a woman named Jasmin Hernandez. In the suit, Hernandez alleges that McCaw, as the athletic director at Baylor, knew football player Tevin Elliott had been accused several times of committing sexual assault. She alleges that McCaw failed to protect Hernandez before Elliott raped her and showed willful indifference afterward. Barring a settlement, a jury will determine what culpability McCaw had in both Hernandez’s rape and in an atmosphere that enabled a shocking number of alleged assaults by Baylor football players. In early stages of this litigation, with the ink barely dry on McCaw’s Baylor severance agreement, he landed a new job: Monday afternoon, Liberty University hired McCaw to be its athletic director. Liberty and its president, Jerry Falwell Jr., hired a man in the midst of ongoing litigation relating to the highprofile disgrace that forced him from his old job. McCaw ran the athletic program in which law firm Pepper Hamilton, tabbed by the school to perform an independent investigation, found “a failure to identify and respond to a

department employees and female students, not only at Baylor, but across the country. American colleges have a sexual assault problem. The U.S. Department of Education has more than 200 open cases looking into potential mishandling of sexual assault on campuses. The immediate recycling of McCaw underscores the attitudes that let it persist. McCaw has received no punishment from the NCAA, which does not comment on pending or potential cases. It is rare, but not unprecedented, for athletic directors to be punished. McCaw’s rapid resurfacing is particularly nauseating. Falwell excused any role McCaw played in the scandal. He told the Lynchburg News & Advance, “I think [McCaw] was a good man in a place where bad things were going on and decided to remove himself from that atmosphere.”

Injury bug bites Patriots at another critical time FANTASY JOB

AL BELLO (GETTY IMAGES)

NFL It was at about this point last season that the Patriots’ determined march toward a fifth Super Bowl title with Bill Belichick as their coach and Tom Brady as their quarterback veered off course. A 10-0 start in 2015, which prompted talk of an unbeaten campaign to punctuate a revenge tour in the Deflategate aftermath, gave way to a 2-4 close to the regular season. Brady’s supporting cast was riddled by injuries, and the Patriots played their way out of the top seed in the AFC playoffs. They had to go on the road for the AFC title game in Denver, where the Broncos’ pass rushers overwhelmed Brady and his blockers en route to a Super Bowl triumph that became a retirement gift to Brady’s chief rival, Peyton Manning. So now, with the Patriots again in position to make a championship push, the key questions are: Can they secure the conference’s No. 1 seed this time? And can they keep their most important players healthy enough? There were ominous signs Sunday in the Meadowlands. The

Oregon begins task of replacing Helfrich

Hampered by a knee injury during a close win over the Jets on Sunday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made several inaccurate throws.

Patriots beat the Jets 22-17 to get to 9-2, tied with the Raiders for best in the AFC. But Brady, who had a knee injury, made a number of uncharacteristically inaccurate throws. And his favorite receiver, tight end Rob Gronkowski, made his return to the lineup a brief stay, exiting the game in the first quarter with a back injury. Brady missed practices Wednesday and Thursday last week, another disruption for him in a season that has been full of them. He did not dismiss the

notion that his knee might have affected his ability to plant and throw properly. “I’m gonna have to watch the film,” Brady said. “But you’re right. I wasn’t hitting the ones that were there.” The Patriots play three of their final five games at home, beginning Sunday against the Rams. But the two road games — at Denver on Dec. 18 and at Miami in the Jan. 1 regular-season finale — should be demanding. MARKE MASKE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Adam Schefter to pitch in on NBA coverage On a podcast with the MMQB’s Peter King, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter said he’ll contribute sideline reporting at NBA games this season. And it’s all thanks to daily fantasy sports. Schefter said he grew up a Knicks fan, but lost interest in basketball when he went to college. Then he got hooked on daily fantasy sports, likening setting his $3 DraftKings lineups at work to taking a cigarette break. Schefter said ESPN became aware of his interest and asked if he wanted to help cover hoops. (TWP)

It had been 40 years since Oregon fired a head coach and just as long since the school went outside the program to fill the spot. Now Oregon is again looking beyond its current staff following the dismissal of Mark Helfrich, who was fired Tuesday after a 4-8 finish. He was 37-16 in four seasons. Athletic director Rob Mullens told players that he would move quickly to make a hire. Among the possible candidates being mentioned for the Ducks job were Western Michigan’s P.J.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Shatori Walker-Kimbrough was a freshman on the Maryland women’s basketball team the last time the Terrapins faced Louisville. At stake in that NCAA tournament game April 1, 2014, was a berth in the Final Four, and Walker-Kimbrough vividly recalls the raucous environment at the Cardinals’ home court. “I remember Alyssa Thomas was shooting a free throw, and the arena was actually shaking it was so loud,” the senior guard said, referring to her former teammate.

Walker-Kimbrough and senior center Brionna Jones are the only Terrapins on the current roster who were part of that thrilling 76-73 victory, so they’ve been briefing their youthful teammates on what to brace for when the schools play again tonight at 7 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge at KFC Yum! Center. Coach Brenda Frese has been doing much of the same heading into the fourth game of her career against former assistant Jeff Walz, who has guided Louisville to two Final Fours since leaving College Park.

The fifth-ranked Terrapins have won three in a row against No. 7 Louisville, including the last two by a combined seven points. “Obviously this year we know it’s different,” Frese said, “but I know for our seniors, they know what it feels like for a home venue for Louisville.” Last week, Maryland (6-0) defeated then-No. 23 Arizona State 83-42 and Washington State, 79-69.

The Botanic Garden’s holiday show sizes down U.S. landmarks

A model train at the U.S. Botanic Garden’s “Season’s Greenings” rides through a replica of Grand Canyon National Park.

“Season’s Greenings,” the U.S. Botanic Garden’s annual holiday show, which this year celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service. Constructed almost entirely from dried plant materials by Paul Busse’s famed garden design firm, Applied Imagination, the exhibit’s wonderfully intricate models are nestled among live plants and foliage that’s crisscrossed by choo-chooing model trains. They include re-creations of cherished natural wonders — such as the Grand Canyon, Devils Tower and Arches National Park — and wellknown man-made monuments,

including Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty and the Alamo. Also represented are less obvious landmarks, such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth home in Atlanta and the circa 1959 neon “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. “There are a whole new generation of National Park sites and national historic landmarks that speak to the diverse American experience,” says Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst. “Places like the Maggie L. Walker site [in Richmond], that tells the important story of the first African-American woman bank president in America, I think are

very important” to the exhibit. “Season’s Greenings” also features more than 30 varieties of gorgeous poinsettias and an ornament-laden tree that is one of the largest indoor Christmas trees in Washington. But it’s the fairyland world of familiar places in miniature that is sure to inspire the most wonder. VANESSA H. LARSON (EXPRESS)

SADIE DINGFELDER | THE STAYCATIONER

With its pristine streets lined with graffiti-free shops and ample parking, National Harbor is like a Disney version of D.C. My husband, Steve, complains that it feels fake, like it was built yesterday, so it took some convincing last year to get him to go to National Harbor’s massive Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, to see the atrium decked out for the holidays. Every night at 7 and 9, the fountain lights up and dances to EDM versions of Christmas tunes. A huge (fake) Christmas tree, suspended in the air, sparkles in time. Then — the best part — it starts snowing. Indoors! Seeing it all last year, I nearly passed out from glee. Steve, not so much. As I tried to catch the “snowflakes” in my mouth, he yanked me back. “Don’t eat that,” he said. “I think it’s some kind of foam.” To entice Steve back this year, I shelled out $41.80 each (plus $15 for parking) to see the hotel’s main attraction, “Ice!” — 15,000 square feet of giant ice sculptures and slides. (“Ice!” is open every day until Jan. 1, except Dec. 5-7.) Our friend Tori and her daughters, Colette, 8, and

Lexi, 1, met us there. The entrance to “Ice!” is in the hotel’s new Christmas Village — basically an exhibit hall draped with red curtains. At the center is a small carousel ($5 a ride), and around the edges are stations where you can have milk and cookies with Mrs. Claus ($20 for one adult and a child), build gingerbread houses (for $30-$40) or customize a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal ($12 and up). We were on a tight schedule — Lexi’s naptime is noon sharp — so we beelined for “Ice!” We skipped the introductory movie and tried to avoid the counter where employees were handing out giant blue parkas. “Sorry, they’re required,” a woman said. We obediently slid them on top of our already bulky winter attire and waddled onward, like a family of obese penguins. As we headed to the tent where “Ice!” is staged, I tried to impress Steve with fun facts. “The tent is kept at 9 degrees to keep the ice from melting,” I said. “They truck in 2 million pounds of ice from Ohio, and it’s carved by artisans who flew in from China.” “I hope they also buy carbon offsets,” said Steve, the Al Gore to my Al Roker. When we entered the tent, we were hit with a wall of

Each section of the attraction has its own soundtrack, but since ice is not soundproof, you can hear upward of five songs simultaneously. “I think that’s a calypso version of ‘Silver Bells,’ ” I said, picking up on a song coming from the next room. I moved toward the music’s source and found an area filled with little stages showing how people from different countries celebrate Christmas. In the Netherlands, apparently it’s traditional to fill your (ice) shoes with (giant, frozen) carrots. In Ethiopia, Christmas is Jan. 7 and presents aren’t a big part of the holiday. Then, there’s us. “In the United

States, Christmas is a festive time of shopping …,” a tombstone-shaped sign declared. “Let’s go to the ice slides before the line gets too long,” Tori said, pulling me away. But there were only a few other people on the slides, and we soon found out why: Even though they are made of ice, they aren’t slippery. If you push off and sit on your parka, you might make it to the bottom. Colette didn’t get a good start, so she had to scoot down her slide a foot at a time. “Do you want to go again?” I said. “Nah,” Colette answered. “Come take my picture,” she said, striking a pose in the next room, which featured ice sculptures of international children. She’s a bright kid, so she had quickly figured out the real purpose of “Ice!”: photo ops. Unfortunately, I was only able to snap a few shots before the cold knocked out my phone battery. We’d been in the exhibit

for 30 minutes and we were pretty chilled ourselves, so we decided to leave. As we returned our parkas, Steve said that “Ice!” was a disappointment, and I reluctantly agreed. The main problem, according to Colette, is there’s nothing for kids to do besides pose for pictures. And the sculptures, though impressively large and impeccably made, aren’t all that interesting to look at. We had a lot more fun afterward in the Christmas Village, riding the carousel, drinking hot chocolate and browsing the Build-A-Bear kiosk. We didn’t stay for the indoor snowfall and fountain show — Lexi’s nap time is ironclad — but I hope to make it back this season, ideally with some children in tow, though perhaps not with my husband. In two weeks, The Staycationer checks out “The Nutcracker” — from the stage.

Yule duel

Peace and harmony? Forget it. Everyone knows the real reason for the season is fighting with your family. It’s been a tough year, so chances are you’ve already exhausted the classic hot buttons — politics, religion, whether Aunt Maude is too drunk to drive home. Stop rehashing those old tropes and try out these fresh flashpoints — all based on local holiday events. Consider checking them out in person before picking sides. Opposition research, after all, is key to winning any debate. TEXT BY SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS) | ILLUSTRATIONS BY DANIEL SHAFFER (FOR EXPRESS)

Branches of government These two trees have a long history of one-upmanship. In the early 1980s, Congress scheduled its Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting to pre-empt the White House’s starstudded National Christmas Tree extravaganza. The executive branch eventually won the calendar battle, but the war over which tree is better still rages.

National Christmas Tree

Capitol Christmas Tree

The tree: A Colorado blue spruce permanently planted on the White House’s South Lawn, this tree is an environmentally friendly symbol of hope, joy and new life. Compare that to the carbon footprint of this year’s Capitol tree — cut down and then trucked 2,500 miles to D.C.

The tree: Every year, the superintendent of the Capitol grounds selects the perfect evergreen with a straight trunk and full, lush foliage. This year’s tree, an 80-foot Engelmann spruce from a national forest in Idaho, beat out literally millions of lesser trees for the honor.

Decorations: A picture of patriotic elegance, the tree will be draped with a net of LED energy-efficient red, white and blue lights and sprinkled with stars and sugar plum ornaments. Plus, unlike some antisocial trees down the street, this Christmas tree has a posse: 57 little Christmas trees, representing U.S. states and territories plus D.C., circle the big tree.

Decorations: Everyone can see that the National Christmas Tree’s net of lights is a sad attempt to disguise its essential lumpiness. The perfectly symmetrical Capitol tree, on the other hand, will be trimmed with more form-fitting lights, plus thousands of handmade ornaments that represent the state of Idaho, including adorable little burlap potato bags.

Ceremony: The only things brighter than this tree are the stars brought in to help the first family light it. This year, there will be performances by Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, The Lumineers, James Taylor, Kelly Clarkson, Yolanda Adams and Chance the Rapper. The event will also be broadcast on the Hallmark Channel on Monday at 7 p.m.

Ceremony: The National tree may have star power, but you have to win a lottery ticket to get to attend the lighting. Meanwhile, the Capitol tree lighting is open to anyone who happens by — and it’s a down-home good time, with the U.S. Air Force Band playing holiday tunes. Isabella Gerard, a fifth-grader from Boise, Idaho, will press the button to light the tree.

Closing arguments: OK, so the National Christmas Tree may be a little homely, but don’t forget that it’s at the center of a White House Christmas extravaganza, with musical performances nightly (Dec. 2-22, except Dec. 12 and 19).

Closing arguments: The Capitol Christmas Tree doesn’t aspire to the glitz and glamour of its White House cousin. Like Congress, this is a tree for and by the people, and it was cheered on by smalltown Americans as it made its way to D.C.

National Christmas Tree Lighting, E Street between 15th and 17th streets NW; Thu., 5 p.m.; free ticket lottery is now closed.

Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting, Garfield and Peace circles near First Street SW; Tue., 5-7 p.m., free.

Tiny Tim smackdown Ford’s Theatre has been presenting a production of Charles Dickens’ novella since 1979, but this is the first year it will go toe-to-toe with a Second City spoof at the Kennedy Center.

‘A Christmas Carol’

‘Twist Your Dickens’

The script: Why mess with a classic? Ford’s production tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s redemption with simple clarity, sumptuous sets and awardwinning thespians.

The script: It’d take an Oscar winner to convincingly deliver treacly lines like “God bless us, every one.” The Second City’s version loosely follows the original’s plot while making fun of its naked emotional manipulation.

The stars: Shakespearean actor Craig Wallace, known for his booming baritone, is taking on the role of Scrooge for the first time this year. Lauren Williams, who last appeared at Ford’s Theatre in “Violet” in 2014, is playing Scrooge’s neglected ex, Belle. Bonus points: This “Christmas Carol” includes actual caroling, with a silveryvoiced cast singing holiday favorites including “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” Oh, and after the show, the cast collects donations for local charities ($550,000 has been raised since 2009).

Ford’s Theatre, 511 10th St. NW; through Dec. 31, $24-$107.

The stars: Cast member Jaime Moyer has a special set of pipes, like Wallace. You might recognize her edge-oflaryngitis voice — and off-kilter comedic timing — from her roles on “Parks and Recreation” and “2 Broke Girls.” Bonus points: Like we need to hear more stale Christmas music. The Second City keeps it fresh by sprinkling in improv every night based on audience suggestions — or, more specifically, confessions. In “Twist Your Dickens,” you’ll get to see fellow theatergoers’ misdeeds acted out onstage.

Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW; Dec. 9-31, $39-$79.

‘Nutcracker’ battle royal The ballet is great, but its plot is weird: A little girl falls in love with a kitchen implement, and then falls asleep and dreams in ethnic stereotypes. Thankfully, these productions tweak the traditional storyline to make it more relatable.

Washington Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’

‘The Hip Hop Nutcracker’

The premise: Set in Colonial-era Georgetown and, later, under a canopy of cherry blossoms, this D.C.-centric “Nutcracker” is both fresh and nostalgic. Though the production follows the traditional plot, the nutcracker transforms into George Washington and the Mouse King is, of course, King George III. Compare that mostly faithful approach to “The Hip Hop Nutcracker,” which borrows half of its plot from “Back to the Future.”

The premise: The big dramatic moment in that other “Nutcracker” is when Clara’s toy breaks. Boohoo, poor little rich girl. “The Hip Hop Nutcracker,” on the other hand, features people dealing with real problems, like when our young heroine, Maria-Clara, faces down a mouse-eared gang on the mean streets of New York. Luckily, MariaClara’s uncle shows up and magically transports her to a dance club in 1985.

The dancing: The Washington Ballet’s top stars execute the ballet’s challenging choreography with apparent ease. Look for Brooklyn Mack’s spectacular leaps as he reprises his role as the Frontiersman and Maki Onuki’s graceful pirouettes as the show-stopping Sugar Plum Fairy.

The dancing: You want spins? This show’s got dancers spinning on their dang heads! A talented cast including “So You Think You Can Dance” alum Yorelis Apolinario performs contemporary choreography that includes elements of the Harlem Shake, plus some krumping and popand-lock routines.

The music: You can’t beat Tchaikovsky, so why try? This production features the classic score as recorded by a variety of worldrenowned orchestras. Sure, live musicians would be better, but they are way too expensive!

The music: A lot of the music for “The Hip Hop Nutcracker” is prerecorded, but an onstage DJ livens things up with virtuoso scratching and thumping beats, while violinist David Marks embellishes Tchaikovsky’s tunes.

Warner Theatre, 513 13th St. NW; through Dec. 24, $33-$133.

Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda, Md.; Dec. 16, 8 p.m., $32-$58.

The matte pieces track the time with magnetized ball bearings that travel around the face. “It’s a great conversation piece,” retail manager Dom Adams says. “So many people with Rolexes and Cartiers say, ‘What is that watch?’ ”

3 Buying for multiple people? Adams recommends heading straight for the Comme des Garcons wallets ($162$302), which come in a variety of styles and colors. “If you want to be a little playful, there’s one for that. If you want to be more traditionally feminine or masculine, there’s something for that,” Adams says.

You’ll find gifts at a lower price point at Lettie Gooch too, like bath salts from Mullein & Sparrow ($16-$28) with blends that feature cacao or Himalayan pink salt.

For the friend who always thinks it’s FREEZING in here, Watts likes the blanket cape from Prairie Underground ($148). “I’ve thrown this on with my PJs or just to go out,” she says.

For the foodie who’d rather stay in and cook …

This market from the NoMa Business Improvement District is structured a bit like a music festival: Inside the main tent of the Wunder Garden, the artists of The Lemon Bowl will lead classes on how to create your own gifts, including terrariums, marbled stationary, hand-dyed scarves and more. Not feeling crafty? There will also be plenty of shopping to do — plus food and drinks at the Wunder Garten. Wunder Garten, 1101 First St. NE; Sat. & Sun., noon-6 p.m., free admission, classes $35-$50.

Hill’s Kitchen, 713 D St. SE

Downtown Holiday Market

7 This Capitol Hill shop is filled with District-specific treats, but owner Leah Daniels’ favorite is Chouquette chocolates ($14-$44) with D.C.-themed designs and a sea salt caramel filling. “It’s good for someone you want to give a little treat to, but you don’t know them very well,” Daniels says.

9 8 It’s hard to go wrong with a versatile piece of cookware. That’s what makes the Staub cast iron cocotte (aka Dutch oven) such a good gift: You can cook a chicken, bake bread or whip up a rack of lamb in this thing. Daniels recommends the 6-quart size ($249).

Another spilled glass of wine proves you can’t have too many towels, and Daniels always reaches for Now Designs’ Ripple kitchen towel ($8.95). It passed Cook’s Illustrated’s test of the best kitchen towels, likely because of the super-absorbent Turkish cotton.

This is the 12th year that Chinatown gets a little merrier and brighter with a sprawling holiday market. In addition to jewelry, art, soaps, candles and clothes, you’ll find treats like hot chocolate, doughnuts and empanadas to keep you warm while you search for something for your cousin who already has everything. F Street between Seventh and Ninth streets NW; through Dec. 23, noon-8 p.m., free.

Christkindlmarkt Heurich House Museum’s annual market is modeled on traditional German Christmas markets. This may be your best bet to find the perfect gift for a foodie, from vendors such as ‘Chups, Element Shrub, Catherine George Cakes and Langdon Wood Maple Syrup. You can also pick up jewelry, pottery, art and handdyed clothing. Heurich House Museum, 1307 New Hampshire Ave. NW; Fri., 4-9 p.m., Sat. & Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m., $10-$15.

Steep Canyon Rangers Birchmere, 3701 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria; Thu., 7:30 p.m., $39.50.

The long-standing bluegrass outfit Steep Canyon Rangers got a lot of attention seven years ago when it became the backing band for actor, comedian and skilled banjo player Steve Martin. With Martin reducing his road time, the group is primarily focusing on its own shows, touring behind last year’s “Radio,” a progressive acoustic album with broad, roots-based influences that was produced by dobro ace Jerry Douglas.

the record, which 2 Chainz has said is a tribute to his fellow emcee. This weekend, 2 Chainz will perform cuts from the record (and throughout his career) without his partner in rhyme.

Sat.-Dec. 22; various times, $12-$30.

Fillmore, 8656 Colesville Road, Silver Spring; Sat., 8 p.m., $30.

COMEDY

‘Citizens’ Watch’ Inspired by the BBC cult hit “Broadchurch,” Washington Improv Theater is taking on the whodunit. In “Citizens’ Watch,” an audience member rolls a die at the top of the show to choose the murderer — but just because the other characters didn’t kill anyone doesn’t mean they’re entirely innocent. The show’s six performances are part of WIT’s “Seasonal Disorder” series, a collection of holiday-themed improv performances (which runs Thursday through Dec. 30). Source, 1835 14th St. NW;

Mon. BOOKS

Fox News television host Megyn Kelly couldn’t stay out of the headlines during the seemingly endless presidential campaign, sparring with Republican nominee — and now president-elect — Donald Trump before getting involved in the ouster of Fox News chief Roger Ailes, whom she accused of sexual harassment. She writes about both of those topics in her book, “Settle for More,” which she’ll discuss with the BBC’s Katty Kay. Sixth and I, 600 I St. NW; Mon., 7 p.m., sold out.

November 17 January 8 December 15-18 Thurs-Sun at 7:30 pm Sat & Sun at 2 pm Now to Dec 11; Thur-Sat at 7:30 pm; Sat & Sun at 2:00 pm.

This traditional, heart-warming story of Scrooge is told in a brand new way with a score filled with beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics. This moving adaptation, premiered by Parlor Room in 2014, frames the classic Christmas story as a live radio broadcast during a blizzard on Christmas Eve, 1933. An explosive new drama about a fierce young poet whose family tries to tame her. A takedown of “Taming of the Shrew” from a woman’s point of view. An all-African American cast of Chicago’s funniest and most audacious sketch and stand-up artists deconstructs and r econstructs Blackness through comedy.

STREAMING

You can watch Netflix anywhere now. For real.

the most acclaimed musical of our time, “Hamilton,” a show that has been embraced by the Obama White House and has made musicals safe for hip-hop. The resurgent enthusiasm seems in part a recognition of the extraordinary adaptability of this quintessential American form. Maintaining its legacy and, at the same time, pushing the form forward is a challenge being taken up by older nostalgists and a younger generation alike. “What I loved about it, when Damien pitched it to me,” says “La La Land” producer Marc Platt, “is that it sounded as if it accomplished its singing in a non-cynical way, which is also contemporary. I’m always

looking to find ways to keep the musical form alive and relevant in the world, because I love it so.” At the same time, it’s taken a while for the nation’s entertainment machinery to find ways to integrate musical theater back into the mainstream consumer’s diet. “It’s always been this secret little mission of ours, to bring this genre back to respectability,” says producer Neil Meron, who, with his business partner Craig Zadan, executive produces live TV presentations, including “The Sound of Music Live!” and “The Wiz Live!” Next, they’ll unveil “Hairspray Live!” on Dec. 7. It remains a difficult process, though, persuading other branches of the industry to accept

the artistic values of musical theater. Bloom says she pitched two other musical ideas to TV executives before The CW bought “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”; she says landing the deal largely stemmed from the credibility brought to the project by co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter of, among other things, “The Devil Wears Prada.” Platt, who produced “Grease: Live,” says that team sought to combine the styles of filmmaking and live television to create a wholly unique experience. “You always want to find new ways to stretch the genre,” he says. “It’s about finding a new grammar for a form we love.” PETER MARKS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Netflix subscribers can now download shows and movies to watch during a flight, when traveling by car, or for any other time when there is no access to the internet. The long-awaited offline option announced Wednesday already features a number of shows and movies, including “Breaking Bad,” “Narcos” and “Spotlight.” More downloadable content is coming at no additional charge for users. Netflix subscribers wishing to download a video on their smartphone or tablet need to update the app on their Apple or Android device. (AP)

MUSICALS That’s right, all you show tune skeptics who snicker at the spectacle of unison-dancing cats or roll your eyes at the first chords of “Don’t Rain on My Parade”: Musicals are the hippest things going. Across the pop culture landscape, celebrities who never focused their careers on this genre before are getting in line to sing out. In Hollywood, one of the most talked-about award-season contenders is director Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land,” an original movie musical that lovingly recalls tuneful films of yore. Its stars could not feel more of the moment: Emma Stone and, soft-shoeing and crooning along with her, Ryan Gosling. On The CW network, meanwhile, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is in its second season, telling the story of cowriter/co-creator Rachel Bloom’s Rebecca Bunch, a woman who can segue at any moment into a parody music video, a torch song or even a production number modeled on “Les Miserables.” And back in its natural habitat — Broadway — where musical theater has long been king, originals are popping up at a near-modern-record pace. A new crop of old musicals is being sown, too, starring the likes of Bette Midler and Glenn Close. All of this is not to mention

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are the musical theater darlings of 2016.

The series has been approved by Gaye’s family members, who have been protective of Gaye’s work and projects pertaining to his life in the past. (Cameron Crowe, James Gandolfini and Lenny Kravitz are among many who previously sought to tell Gaye’s story on screen, THR reported.) “I’ve been a huge fan my whole life.

blog log “[Serena Williams], you are one of the world’s best human beings, best females and best athletes.” @ANJILAW tweets to Serena Williams in response to her open letter for Porter

magazine’s Incredible Women of 2016 issue. Williams said female athletes should receive the same pay as their male counterparts, and encouraged women to dream big: “Women have to break down many barriers on the road to success. One of those barriers is the way we are constantly reminded we are not men, as if it is a flaw.” She noted that she is referred to as one of the “world’s greatest female athletes,” while stars like LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Roger Federer are just referred to as “the best.”

@BECKYWELLS113 is one of the many people who took to social media to celebrate’s Netflix’s announcement that users can now download content to watch while offline. “Flights and subway commutes will never be the same,” @BAHjournalist tweeted. “[This] is one the smartest things @netflix has ever done,” @BenFasnacht wrote.

memory leads you into a reverie that prompts one discovery after another — although none of them may be particularly new.

TODAY: Mostly sunny but much cooler the first day of December, yet still around 10 degrees above normal. Highs manage to reach around 60, with 10-15 mph winds from the west adding a chill. Tonight, skies stay mostly clear and winds diminish to 10 mph or less. It’s a cool night but not overly chilly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You will want to be truthful with a friend, but not overwhelming. How you say what you have to say is just as important as the message itself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Not everyone is willing to give you a second chance, so you must search carefully for those who will do you that favor.

Audacious lady gives life update not on Facebook

Celeb robbing self of pizza, nourishment Mariah Carey’s diet consists only of Norwegian salmon and capers and “that’s it,” the singer revealed in an interview with E!

It’s the worst.”
