Can Trump own D.C. hotel?
PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY
Officer indicted after suspect is hit by cruiser
THE DISTRICT It’s a glittering jewel in Donald Trump’s hotel empire. Securing the rights to use the governmentowned building where it is housed took him more than a year of negotiating. The resulting lease runs hundreds of pages, complicated and dreadfully dull. Dull save for clause 37.19 on top of page 103, which has suddenly become the subject of great discussion among experts on government contracting law, and not a few Trump critics. If some of the experts are correct, the first 43 words of this clause could force Trump to relinquish his equity stake in the Trump International Hotel just down the street from the White House. The key part: No “elected official of the Government of the United States” shall be “admitted to any share or part of this Lease.” “He’s going to have to divest himself of the hotel,” said John Sindelar, a former senior adviser to the head of the General Services Administration, the government agency that negotiated the lease three years ago. Sindelar left the agency in 2007. Other contracting experts agreed, though not all of them. David Drabkin, once the GSA’s senior procurement officer, said he thinks the clause doesn’t apply to Trump because it only prohibits adding elected officials

Lawyers say his being elected president violates terms of lease
Critics have been calling on President-elect Donald Trump to relinquish his stake in his newly opened D.C. hotel.
to the lease after it was signed, not banning original parties to it who subsequently get elected to office. He adds, though, that a president leasing the building is “absolutely untenable” because of other conflicts of interest. The Trump Organization did not respond to emails asking for comment. Whoever is correct, get ready for a battle over the issue. On Wednesday, Trump tweeted that legal documents were being prepared that would “take me completely out of business operations,” but made no mention of selling his ownership interest. Since his election, government ethics lawyers have been urging Trump to sell his assets and put
the money in a blind trust controlled by an outside party, not his children. They say that is the only sure way to avoid conflicts between his pursuit of private profit and the public good. But aside from browbeating the president-elect, there is little critics can do. Federal conflicts of interest rules generally don’t apply to the president, a fact that Trump himself has emphasized. The D.C. hotel may prove the exception, however, because he must follow the terms of the lease. “It’s a breach of contract,” said Richard Painter, chief White House ethics lawyer for George W. Bush. “He’s got to get rid of the hotel.”
Painter said the hotel is a problem for Trump in another way. If foreign diplomats stay at the hotel, as has been reported, then Trump could be seen as running afoul of the emoluments clause of the Constitution banning payments to the president from foreign governments. Other critics have pointed out that the contract requires negotiations over those additional payments each year, and that you cannot expect a GSA employee acting in taxpayer interest to take a tough stand against members of the president’s family or officials of his company to get more money for the government-owned property.

NTSB issues scathing report on July wreck Agency: Metro knew a year before accident about decayed rail ties TRANSPORTATION Documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board on Thursday relating to the July derailment of a Silver Line train show Metro officials were aware of potentially dangerous deteriorating rail ties near East Falls Church for more than a year before the incident. In addition, transcripts of interviews between Metro management and track inspectors suggest investigators believe inspectors may have been fabricating inspection reports by copying the exact same measurements from month to month. “So how did your measurements stay the same if your ties are getting worse and worse?” asked Metro safety officer Robert Davis, interviewing an inspector in early August who had been overseeing the crossover near East Falls Church. “After three years how did the measurements all be exactly the same?” “You’re not going to tell me that the track didn’t move a sixteenth of an inch or an eighth of an inch or a quarter of a inch over that time,” Davis added. “I can go out here and gauge this track out here and I could find different gauge

everywhere right now.” “If I believed you for one second … I would end this right now and move on, but you know as well as I do that you can’t look me in the eye and tell me that, because you’re an honest man.” Metro announced in August that it was launching a criminal investigation into the derailment, but no charges have been filed. Days after the July 29 derailment, the NTSB indicated Metro inspectors might have been aware of problems with the tracks in that spot for years. Because of the decayed state of the wooden rail ties, the running rails had not been properly secured in place, and the tracks had spread so wide the Silver
Line train fell off its mooring. But the inspection reports released this week by the NTSB show much more explicitly just how much Metro knew in advance of the derailment: Every report from January 2015 to June 2016 listed 15 deteriorating rail ties in that area, and yet the problem remained unaddressed. In a summary of the NTSB investigation sent to the region’s lawmakers Thursday, the regulatory agency said that the derailment occurred as a result of “Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s ineffective inspection and maintenance practices and inadequate safety oversight.” MARTINE POWERS AND FAIZ SIDDIQUI (THE WASHINGTON POST)

San Bernardino healing a year after terror attack
Wisconsin election recount begins
Local hostility against Muslims seems to have diminished over time

JAE C. HONG (AP)
SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. Almost a year after her father was killed in the San Bernardino terror attack, Kate Bowman wrote the word “love” in yellow chalk on the sidewalk outside a mosque. It was just one of the messages of peace the 15-year-old Lutheran and her mother have left in an effort to unify Muslims and Christians in the blue-collar city east of Los Angeles against the violence that many community members feared might divide them. In the attack last Dec. 2, San Bernardino County health inspector Syed Farook and his Pakistan-born wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a meeting of Farook’s colleagues, and later were killed in a shootout with police. Police said the assailants were inspired by the Islamic State. “What angered me most after Dec. 2 was the amount of hate speech going on,” said Bowman, whose father, Harry Bowman, was among 14 victims killed. But many people in the city worked to counter that attitude. Victims’ families encouraged dialogue and tolerance. The Muslim community undertook its own campaign to educate neighbors about Islam. Clergy organized interfaith talks. Nationwide, hate crimes against Muslims were up this

year, and President-elect Donald Trump frequently used heated rhetoric about Muslims on the campaign trail. As San Bernardino prepared to mark the anniversary, a Somaliborn Muslim carried out an attack at Ohio State University. Meanwhile, police in Los Angeles met with Muslim leaders to condemn hateful letters sent to mosques in the city and elsewhere. In San Bernardino, apart from some incidents, residents say their worst fears about a backlash in their community didn’t materialize. “I think as a community it felt good not to be divided,” said Brian Levin, a professor at California State University, San
Bernardino who studies hate crimes. “And I think in other parts of the country they had the luxury of hating when we didn’t.” In the days after the attack, some things changed. Muslim women wearing headscarves said they were stared at, and some even changed their attire out of fear. A Muslim university professor reported receiving threatening emails. But the effects were short-lived, experts believe, in part because community members took action. “I think there are people who are afraid,” said Amjad Khan, a Muslim who lives in nearby Chino. “But it wasn’t as pronounced as I thought it might be.” CHRISTINE ARMARIO AND AMY TAXIN (AP)

nation+world Jobs saved, but facility will still shift some production to Mexico INDIANAPOLIS President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday defended directly negotiating with companies seeking to move their operations overseas, setting the stage for an unprecedented level of intervention by the White House into private enterprise. “I think it’s very presidential. And if it’s not presidential, that’s OK because I like doing it,” Trump said at the Carrier factory that had been slated to move to Mexico. “But we’re going to have a lot of phone calls made to companies when they
say they’re leaving this country because they’re not going to leave this country.” Under the terms of the deal, Carrier would maintain more than 1,000 jobs at its furnace plant in Indianapolis instead of moving the work to Mexico. The company would receive a $7 million incentive package from Indiana in exchange for a $16 million investment in the facility over the next two years — though Trump said that amount would likely be higher. Carrier still plans to shift production to Mexico from another Indiana facility that employs about 700 people. Experts said no modern president has intervened on behalf of an individual company, a move

But these actions affected entire industries, not decisions at a specific plant, he said. Conservatives have long decried such incentive packages as distorting free markets, while liberals have characterized them as corporate subsidies. House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday he supported the agreement. “I think it’s pretty darn good that people are keeping their jobs in Indiana instead of going to Mexico,” he said. YLAN Q. MUI, MAX

Tenn. mayor says death toll from wildfires has risen to 10 as the search for survivors continues
A single dose of psilocybin, the long-banned active compound in “magic mushrooms,” significantly reduced anxiety, depression and the fear of death among cancer patients for months at a time, according to two studies published Thursday. Eighty people in separate clinical trials at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and New York University Langone Medical Center were given synthetic psilocybin under close supervision. The vast majority experienced an increase in optimism, a feeling of connection with other people, and mystical and spiritual experiences. The research, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, is the latest to suggest that psilocybin and other hallucinogenic drugs might be beneficial for people with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and drug, alcohol or tobacco addictions. In both studies, about 80 percent of participants said the effects lasted for at least several months; more than 70 percent said the experiences were among the most meaningful of their lives. They reported no serious side effects. In opinion pieces with the studies, researchers called for stepped-up research on hallucinogens. Other researchers, however, expressed concerns about “medicalizing” the drug. LAURIE MCGINLEY

Open to persuasion POLITICS Fully repeal the “disaster” Affordable Care Act? After meeting with President Barack Obama, Donald Trump said maybe he’ll keep some of it. Revive waterboarding of terrorism suspects? Eh, maybe the promise of cigarettes and beer will work even better, the president-elect said after talking with a retired general. Treat climate change like a “hoax”? Well, maybe humans are doing some things wrong, Trump conceded after a New York Times columnist laid out a case. Since winning the election, Trump has made clear that even his firmest positions are open to change and that he can be easily persuaded by the well-known figures now clamoring to give him advice. The president-elect tends to echo the last person he spoke with — or the last thing he saw on TV — making direct access to him all the more valuable, especially as he selects members of his administration. That open-minded nimbleness may have helped Trump win the election, but it also poses clear risks as he prepares to govern and will be forced to commit to positions. “No one should have ever mistaken Trump for a man of any fixed principles or of having any sort of intellectual framework beyond his self-aggrandizement

and bluster,” said Rick Wilson, a Republican strategist and longtime Trump critic. “His followers thought he meant every word he said. But it’s obvious that Trump has little if any actual ideological consistency, despite his promises.” Unlike presidents before him, Trump has often rejected the help of traditional policy advisers and briefers, claiming to already know what he needs to know. Instead, he watches endless cable television, consults with his adult children and chats up a line of guests to Trump Tower in New York and his private club in Palm Beach, Fla. Members of Trump’s campaign staff have long tried to master the tricky art of getting him to do and say what they wanted without him realizing it.
A change of opinion AFFORDABLE CARE ACT: For more than a year, Donald Trump promised to fully repeal and replace it with something much better — a vague pledge. Soon after a meeting with President Barack Obama, Trump told The Wall Street Journal that he might be open to keeping parts of the law. CLIMATE CHANGE: He once tweeted that the “concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese.” But after a meeting with The New York Times, he admitted “there is some connectivity” between human activity and climate change. (TWP)
Trump’s third and final campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, has repeatedly compared working with Trump to tricking
her young children into doing what she wants. Conway has said she’s careful to not tell Trump what to do and instead gives him a few options to pick between. During an interview this summer with The Washington Post, Conway illustrated this point by telling a story about her 11-yearold daughter, who wanted to wear a turquoise shirt on Memorial Day, instead of a blue shirt as her mother wanted. Conway laid out four blue options for her daughter to freely choose among and “minutes later, she came out in one of those shades.” Yet there is unpredictability to Trump. He has been known to stubbornly cling to positions that are problematic for legal, constitutional or logistical reasons. But then, seemingly with just one conversation, he can suddenly change. Take the example of waterboarding. For a year, Trump refused to budge on the issue, despite few counterterrorism experts or lawmakers agreeing with him. Then came Trump’s post-election meeting with retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, a four-star general who was chosen to be secretary of defense Thursday, according to people familiar with the decision. Trump said he asked Mattis for his thoughts on waterboarding. “I was surprised,” Trump told The New York Times. “He said: ‘I’ve never found it to be useful.’ He said: ‘I’ve always found, give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers and I do better with that than I do with torture.’ And I was very impressed by that answer.” JENNA JOHNSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Trump picks ex-Gen. Mattis to lead defense POLITICS President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James Mattis to be secretary of defense, according to people familiar with the decision, nominating an ex-senior military officer who led operations across the Middle East to run the Pentagon less than four years after he hung up his uniform. To take the job, Mattis will need Congress to pass new legislation to bypass a federal law stating that defense secretaries must not have been on active duty in the previous seven years. Congress granted a similar exception when Gen. George Marshall was appointed in 1950. An announcement is likely by early next week. Jason Miller, a spokesman with the transition team, tweeted Thursday that no decision had been made, while Trump’s son Donald Jr., retweeted a report about Mattis’ new job. Mattis, 66, retired as chief of U.S. Central Command in 2013 after serving more than four decades in the Marine Corps. He is known as one of the most influential military leaders of his generation, serving as a strategic thinker while drawing rebukes for his aggressive talk. Like Trump, Mattis favors a tougher stance against U.S. adversaries abroad. He has said that while discussions often focus on ISIS or al-Qaeda, the Iranian regime is “the single most enduring threat to stability” in the Middle East. DAN LAMOTHE (TWP)

Redskins coach, players aren’t worried about Hopkins’ latest misses NFL With Washington trailing by seven in the second quarter, Dustin Hopkins studied the afternoon sun as it marched up the field at AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day. “We’re in the clear,” the kicker thought to himself, “unless we kick a long field goal.” It was then that a potential game-tying drive stalled on an incompletion. So coach Jay Gruden called on Hopkins to salvage the effort, as he has done so often this season. The 55-yarder into the retreating glare sailed wide right, his second miss of the day. Hopkins didn’t have his best outing in the 31-26 loss at Dallas, missing two of four field goal attempts, as well as putting a bit too much punch on an onside kick. On Wednesday, as the 6-4-1 Redskins turned their attention
to Sunday’s game at Arizona (4-6-1), Gruden reiterated his confidence in Hopkins, who is tied for second in the NFL with 25 field goals. “I’m not going to waver on my level of confidence,” Gruden said, reaffirming his faith in Hopkins’ leg and his own commitment to taking calculated risks in crucial situations. “I’m not going to say I’m not going to kick a field goal because I’m afraid he’s going to miss it. If we need the points, we’re going to kick it.” In his second season with the Redskins, Hopkins has experienced the gamut through the first 11 games. After the team’s 0-2 start, the kicker was the Redskins’ most valuable player against the Giants, hitting all five of his field goal attempts, including the game-winner, to deliver a 29-27 upset that staved off panic among the team’s fans with his parents, in-laws and grandparents in the MetLife Stadium stands to share it.

Gruden not losing faith in his kicker The glare at AT&T Stadium in Dallas proved to be a problem for Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins, who missed two of four field goal attempts in a loss.

inexplicable miss from 34 yards in overtime of the seesaw battle against Cincinnati in London, which ended in a 27-27 tie. Throughout, Hopkins, 26, has remained even-keeled, with an
old soul’s steadiness in a young man’s body. “You’re never as good as people say you are at something,” he muses, “and you’re never as bad as people say you are, regardless of circumstances.” He credits much of that steadiness to his religious faith and also to his teammates, who went out of their way after the tie with the Bengals to let him know that they shared in the outcome. “In my eyes, [making that game-winning kick] is my role. I’m at fault,” Hopkins recalled Wednesday. “But the other guys were taking responsibility in their own way.” LIZ CLARKE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Tiger Woods ruined an otherwise impressive return to golf Thursday in the Bahamas with two double bogeys over the final three holes for a 1-over 73. Woods had been out of competition for 15 months while recovering from two back surgeries. A birdie on the par-3 eighth tied him for the lead. But after a poor finish, Woods ended the day nine shots behind leader J.B. Holmes, in 17th place ahead of only Justin Rose.

New York carries a six-game winning streak to Pittsburgh, where a crowd waving Terrible Towels knows Antonio Brown and the home team can’t afford to lose its footing in a tie with the Ravens atop the AFC North.
Labor deal has no cap, but larger ‘luxury’ tax will have similar effect
After days of near roundthe-clock talks, MLB owners verbally agreed Wednesday night on a new, five-year labor contract with union head Tony Clark and the players. Then they worked to draft a memorandum of understanding, which must be ratified by both sides. Here are three of the biggest changes. (AP/TWP) All-Star Game diminishes The experiment of having the All-Star Game determine which league gets home-field advantage in the World Series will end after 14 years, according to an AP source. The team with the better regular-season record will open the Series at home.
DL limit decreases The minimum time for a stint on the disabled list will be reduced from 15 days to 10. The change will help teams manage smaller injuries, and for starting pitchers, a stint on the disabled list could now mean missing only one start if maneuvered correctly.
BASEBALL The notion of a salary cap in Major League Baseball has always been the Holy Grail for the owners, a non-starter for the players and the primary cause of death in the infamously rancorous negotiations of 1994, which led to a players strike and resulted in the cancellation of the World Series. In the new, tentative labor agreement reached Wednesday night, just hours before the expiration of the old one, there was again no salary cap, keeping baseball as the only one of the four major U.S. sports without one. However, with a series of new and enhanced drags on spending in the new agreement, the owners have come closer than ever to achieving their dream of a cap. As details emerged from the new agreement, it was widely noted that the threshold for the competitive-balance (or “luxury”) tax will rise in each year of the five-year agreement, going from $189 million this past season to $195 million next season and eventually $210 million in the fifth year.
International pool caps Owners failed to obtain an international draft of amateurs outside the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada, but they did get a cap of around $5 million to spend internationally each year instead of a bonus pool that was based on team performance.

Takeaways from new agreement for MLB, players
Commissioner Rob Manfred saw owners and players reach a deal hours before the old one expired.
The players won those increases, arguing that rising revenues of nearly $10 billion annually warranted them. But those gains had a corresponding cost: the penalties for teams that exceed the threshold reportedly will rise sharply. Under the old terms, even teams that exceeded the threshold year after year would never pay a tax rate above 50 percent. Under the new deal, that highest rate could reach 90 percent. Whether you call that a “soft” cap or not, it is the biggest deterrent to spending the game has ever seen — even if it affects only a handful of large-market teams.

Terps’ pace follows Melo at the stripe COLLEGE BASKETBALL When Melo Trimble gets to the free throw line, Maryland is hard to beat. When he doesn’t, the Terps become susceptible to offensive funks. That may be a simplification, but last season Trimble shot five free throws or fewer in five of seven regular-season losses. All five of those losses came on the road. The point guard was 0-for-3 in a 70-67 loss at Michigan on Jan. 12 and didn’t get to the charity stripe at all in an 80-62 defeat March 6 at Indiana. All that makes Maryland’s first loss this season somewhat concerning. Trimble got to the line just four times (and made three) in a 73-59 loss to Pittsburgh at home Tuesday. “We were able to keep Trimble off the foul line, which I think the zone [defense] helped us with,” Pitt coach Kevin Stallings said. “That was a big key for us. We needed a defense that kept him away from the rim and away
three mu st-see ga m e s
from the foul line.” Trimble, now a junior, was 207of-240 (86.3 percent) from the foul line in 35 games as a freshman in 2014-15. Last year he was 158of-182 (86.8) from the line in 36 contests. In the first eight games this season, Trimble is 53-of-66 (80.3 percent), while Maryland has taken 66 more free throws than its opponents. But Pitt took 23 free throws to 12 for the Terps. “They really wanted to keep me away from spots,” Trimble said. “I felt they always had two [players] on me whenever I tried to drive. I couldn’t get to the spots I normally get to, couldn’t get to the paint.” One positive sign for a team that started three freshmen against Pitt is the ability to come back from large deficits. The Terps trailed 45-24 at halftime against Pitt but staged a furious rally and could have cut the margin to six, but freshman Anthony Cowan missed the front end of a one-and-one with 3:00 to play. Maryland came back from 13 points down in the second half to beat Towson 71-66 on Nov. 20.

Until a 101-85 home win Wednesday against Division II Rogers State, the Cowboys had taken just two more free throws than their opponents. That could be good news for the Terps.

SEC Championship: No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 15 Florida on Saturday (4 p.m., CBS)
COLLEGE FOOTBALL On Wednesday, AAC Commissioner Mike Aresco addressed a perceived slight based on an ESPN report citing an anonymous bowl official who said “nearly everyone in the bowl industry, quite frankly, is rooting against Navy” in Saturday’s conference championship game against Temple (noon, ABC). That comment referenced the possibility that a Navy victory could force a delay in announcing Cotton Bowl participants and have a “domino effect” on other bowl announcements. “There have always been plans in case this happened to minimize the impact on the bowl system, so I think that’s overstated,” Aresco said. The highest-ranked team from the Group of Five, as the lower-rated conferences are known, has a guaranteed spot in one of the top six bowl games. No. 19 Navy (9-2) is two spots behind Western Michigan (12-0) for the inside track on the Group of Five’s Cotton Bowl berth. The Broncos play Ohio on Friday in the MAC championship. The Midshipmen would fall from Cotton Bowl contention with a loss in the AAC championship. But should they win, the margin between them and the Broncos might be small enough to persuade the College Football Playoff selection committee to hold off on announcing the Cotton Bowl berth until after the Army-Navy game Dec. 10.

Lumen at Tysons Nicole Brown’s diverse bookshelf is her living room’s “conversation starter.”
Top-shelf decorating There’s more to a beautiful bookcase than stacking all your tomes DECOR On Nicole Brown’s built-in bookshelves, novels and political memoirs mix it up with framed personal photos, sculptural knickknacks and pieces from shops around town. A pair of silver platters “were actually thrift store finds,” she says. “They were in bad shape when I bought them, but silver polish did the trick restoring them.” By thoughtfully arranging the shelving that flanks the TV in the living room of her Chinatown condo, Brown has turned functional storage into a highlight of the space. “I think it’s a nice focal point of the room,” she says. “And it’s a nice conversation starter.” Even the most basic Ikea bookcase can be turned into an eyecatching feature.

textbooks and paperbacks onto the shelves. Instead, take the time to create interesting arrangements to show everything off in a more pleasing way. Start by thinking about scale. “So many people get bookcases that are way too short for their
space,” says D.C.-based interior designer Shannon Smith, who has her own firm, Shannon Claire Interiors, and also works with clients through the interior design service Homepolish. “If you get something short and load it up with a bunch of stuff,
it looks really bottom-heavy in the room and makes your space feel smaller. Thinking taller is definitely the way to go.” Examine the shelving with nothing on it. Does it seem … well, boring? Painting or wallpapering the back of the bookshelves can add some drama to your displays. This is a good place for a color that’s complementary to the rest of the decor in the room, or plays off your wall color nicely. Brown painted the wall behind her dark wood built-ins a metallic gold. “It really pops and gives diversity to the space,” she says. T hen sta r t addi ng your books to the shelves, working with the biggest tomes first. Don’t line them all up the same way. “Do a stack of horizontally laid books and then mix it up with vertically lined-up books with bookends on either side,” says Reston-based interior designer Darlene Molnar.

LMC, a Lennar company that focuses on building rental properties, recently began constructing this mixed-use high-rise apartment adjacent to the Greensboro Metro station in Tysons Corner. The development will also have more than 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The 32-story building, anticipated to be complete in the fall of 2018, will have 398 studio, one-, twoand three-bedroom apartments with 500 to 1,600 square feet. The apartments, 80 of which will be affordable housing and 318 market rate, are expected to feature high-end appliances and design features. The building will have entertaining spaces with catering kitchens, a clubroom and lounge, a fitness and yoga center, a dog grooming spa and a small dog park on the roof. The rooftop level will have indoor and outdoor lounges with fireplaces. Rents have yet to be determined. MICHELE LERNER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Painting or wallpapering the back of your shelves is a quick, easy way to make the space seem fuller and more interesting. Go for a pop of color and pattern, but make sure it fits with the decor scheme of your room.
When deciding on accessories, it can help to start around one focal point, like Brown did with her silver plates. Then build the rest of the shelf around those items.
Resist the urge to fill in every last inch. “A lot of times bookshelves become collect-alls and end up looking cluttered,” Molnar says. “You should allow some of the shelves themselves to be seen. That negative space will make things seem a little less cluttered.” The payoff for all of this effort? “The shelves become an attractive focal point, not a hodgepodge of stuff,” Molnar says. “And you’ll be able to find things if you know where they are and take time to arrange them to your liking.”
TOWN SQUARE While micro-units have a place in an expensive city like this one, families need a little more room. Ditto Residential, best known for its high-end condo developments, is partnering with Irving Development and Group 360 Real Estate Advisors to develop a vacant site at Seventh Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW in Shaw into The Ellis, a rental community with mainly two- or three-bedroom units. Construction won’t start until the fall of 2018, with move-ins likely in the spring of 2020. The Ellis will include 118 units. Thirty percent of the units will be designated affordable housing, with more than half of the affordable units restricted to households with 30 percent of area median income and the rest limited to households with 50 percent of area median income. (Area median income for 2016 is $108,600.) Rents have yet to be determined. A second-floor outdoor mezzanine area will be available exclusively to residents and their guests. Located across the street from the Shaw-Howard U Metro station, the development will include a park open to the public and 8,000 square feet of retail space, with one storefront to include a rent subsidy for a neighborhood business. The developers plan to open a small park adjacent to the main site for neighborhood activities during construction. More information about the project can be found at parcel42partners.com. MICHELE

Bookshelves CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15
Choose an organization system that works for you. Some people like to group books by color, others by size or subject matter. “I love the idea of color-coding them, but that doesn’t work for me because I don’t have colorful books,” says Amy Rutherford, owner of Red Barn Mercantile in Alexandria, which sells furniture and other home decor and offers design services. “Sometimes it’s fun to take the book jackets off to make a more cohesive look. Or turn the books around so you
see the pages and get a calming effect of whites and ivories. You can get as creative as you want.” Once the books are in place, it’s time to start adding accessories. “I like to add sentimental pieces, like large pieces of art and framed photos, and smaller decorative items and plants to finish it off,” Smith says. Use smaller items like candles and knickknacks to fill out the space. “Mix in the smaller pieces so that it looks balanced and you have a different mix of heights on the shelves,” she says. Don’t be afraid to hang or lean artwork against the back of the
bookcase. Top stacks of books with smaller accents. And if you have a collection, whether that’s snow globes or action figures, group some together to display on a shelf. “One of my favorite things on my shelves is a wire basket of skee-balls from an amusement park I used to go to as a kid,” Rutherford says. Scale also comes into play here. Mix up the sizes of books and accessories to make sure you have a blend of big and small. “You’re going to be seeing the shelves from far away in a lot of cases, so you don’t want everything to be tiny,” Rutherford says.

KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY | THE REELIST
Benefit of doubt: It’s OK to wonder if you got it wrong I have a Post-it note stuck on my computer that just says “context + evidence.” That’s to remind me of what I’m supposed to be doing when I write these columns. At its most basic, this space is for me to share my opinions about movies, while Twitter is where people inform me that said opinions are wrong. However, I do try to do more than the basic — and that’s what the Post-it is about. Context and
evidence are the two things any critic (or, really, anyone sharing an opinion) should bring to the table. I look at context as the horizontal axis of opinion, in that the opinion holder should have a certain breadth of knowledge. Evidence is the vertical; it uses specific examples from the medium in question to bolster an opinion. Anyone who isn’t bringing both to the table isn’t making a cogent argument. They’re just subjectively spouting off. That said, it’s also part of the critic’s job to subjectively spout
off. Underneath all the evidence and context lies simple opinion. And sometimes I get a little worried that Twitter is right. Take “Arrival”: I thought it was a fine movie. I thought Amy Adams was fine in it. I thought “Nocturnal Animals” was fine. I thought Amy Adams was fine in it. But it seems everywhere I turn, both movies and both performances are being heralded as Oscarworthy. And I … don’t get it. It confuses me to hear “Arrival,” “Animals” and Adams being discussed as some of the best that film had to offer this year because, fundamentally, all of them left me cold. I can offer arguments as to why, but it boils down to the fact I simply didn’t like them much. They are the equivalent of my usual Subway order: It’s fine and I’ll eat it, but really only to fill space. That opinion doesn’t make me wrong in the World of Film Criticism, but it does make me
an outsider, a role I’m not particularly comfortable playing. It makes me wonder if I missed something, or if I somehow responded to the films in the wrong way. I think it’s important, though, that I feel like this from time to time: It reminds me that opinion is what links evidence and context together, and opinion is what makes discussing film so much fun. If those of us who love talking about movies relied only on objectivity, we’d be ignoring emotion, which is what movies exist to produce. My thoughts on “Arrival” shouldn’t separate me from someone who loved it; in fact, our views can bring us together for a deeper discussion. Thinking someone is wrong about a movie — and admitting you might be wrong, too — is OK if it leads to the right kind of conversation. Read Kristen’s previous columns at washingtonpost.com/thereelist
Looks like ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ season got an extension this year Mariah Carey is set to ring in 2017 with a live performance in Times Square as the headliner for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest” on ABC.

‘The Duelist’ R, 110 min.
Set in Tsarist Russia, Yakovlev (Pyotr Fyodorov) is a retired veteran who re-emerges as a duelist for hire. As a beautiful period drama, this film boasts costumes, but the brilliant, large-screen format is in service of some pretty grisly business. “The Duelist” will leave viewers scratching their heads over any number of questions, but the most gnawing one might be: Why did everyone get so dressed up for a bloodbath? STEPHANIE MERRY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
‘The Eyes of My Mother’ R, 76 min.
This slender narrative follows a young woman (Olivia Bond) who is presumably off her rocker from having witnessed her mother (Diana Agostini) being murdered, thus growing into a thrill-killer herself. But with strange effects and plot holes, this spare screenplay feels illogical and offers precious little in the way of psychological insight. MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN (TWP)

No one can really save ‘Man Down’
3899 Branch Ave, Temple Hills, MD
Film Review “Man Down” carries a poignant message about American veterans’ mental health needs, but you may give up on the movie before it gets there. The story is told through disjointed flashbacks that make it hard to know what’s going on and whom to root for. Shia LaBeouf plays Gabe, a Marine who enlisted with his best friend, Devin (Jai Courtney). When we first see the two men, they’re dirty and bearded, not in uniform, brandishing guns in a bombed-out city as they desperately look for Gabe’s son (Charlie Shotwell). Suddenly, uniformed, cleanshaven Gabe is in an office being questioned by a military counselor (Gary Oldman, disappointingly flat). The counselor is asking about “the incident,” and Gabe is stoic. LaBeouf’s performance is powerful, maybe his best to

blog log “Bernie Sanders is right. Donald Trump didn’t win a deal, he folded and gave in to economic hostage-takers. Sad!” @BRIDOC reacts to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ op-ed in The Washington Post about Donald Trump’s deal with Carrier to keep jobs in the U.S. Sanders called the deal Trump’s “Band-Aid solution,” and said it should send a “shock wave of fear through all workers across the country,” because it could embolden other companies to threaten to move jobs in exchange for tax cuts. Sanders argued instead for a tax on companies that move jobs out of the U.S., and for the government to deny those companies federal contracts.

@CRITICALANALYST joins in the Breitbart reader backlash against Kellogg’s after the company stopped advertising on the site, saying it doesn’t align with Kellogg’s values. Breitbart is known to give voice to racist and anti-Semitic views. Breitbart responded to Kellogg’s move by urging its readers to boycott Kellogg’s products.

“I haven’t watched many of Trevor’s interviews, but I’d venture ... that was his best.” @STUART_GOLDMAN tweeted about Trevor Noah’s interview with
young conservative media star Tomi Lahren on “The Daily Show” Wednesday night. Lahren is a vocal opponent of Black Lives Matter and has compared the movement to the KKK. The two did not find any commmon ground, but had a respectful debate nonetheless. The full version of the interview is available online.

Fill in each column, row and 3x3 box with the digits 1 through 9 without repeating any. The twist in Samurai Sudoku is that the digits that appear in the overlapping boxes must work for both puzzles. A piece of advice to get you started: Don’t focus on completing one grid at a time. Keep the whole puzzle in mind as you go, because filling in a number in one grid could give you clues to another.

Kanye resting at home after hospitalization
Kanye West was released from UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday, following a stay of more than a week for exhaustion. Us Weekly reported he is receiving care at home.

Perry won’t procreate with him until he finishes this odd hair phase he’s in.
Ed Sheeran played his first concert in more than a year Wednesday, during East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices gala, Us Weekly reported. While on stage, he joked about recent reports that he had been accidentally cut in the face by Princess Beatrice with a sword during a party. In describing his activities in the past year, he said, “Got my face cut open, anyone read about that?”

And he didn’t get any wishes, either Rumors flew this week that Katy Perry might be pregnant, after some suspicious behavior at Tuesday’s UNICEF Snowflake Ball. The New York Post reported that Perry and boyfriend Orlando Bloom were in the audience while Hillary Clinton prepared to present her an award. The couple was captured on the event’s giant screen as Bloom leaned in for a hug and kiss, and then rubbed Perry’s stomach in a circular motion. “It seems like a weird move if she’s not pregnant?” one source said. Perry’s rep quickly debunked the pregnancy rumors to the Post. (EXPRESS)
