Thanks to David for sending a shot of this Pomegranate tree from Logan. “We had hundreds and hundreds of flowers and about a dozen or so poms growing right now.”
How do you know when a pomegranate is ripe?!?

“5th Districts units were patrolling around the 100 block of Franklin Street NE when officers heard multiple gun shots [4:30am]. Officers then canvassed the area, shortly after hearing the gun shots MPD received a 911 call for a subject who reported he had several gunshot wounds. The victim further reported that three subjects attempted to rob him at gun point while wearing ski masks. The 5th District Detectives Office is currently investigating this case.”

Some articles imply they’ll stay in DC but users have said they received an email saying they’re leaving the city and this article confirms that:
“Although the WSJ stated that Maven will continue to operate in larger cities like Detroit, Los Angeles, Washington D.C and Toronto, TechCrunch received conflicting information that the car-sharing service will be leaving Washington D.C., but Maven Gig will stay.”
Maven (“Own a Car? List Your Car. Rent It Out. Earn Money.”) seems pretty new to the city and I believe is actually being used on American University’s campus which just welcomed them to campus.”
Did anyone ever use Maven? Did you get an email from them?

Hi! I think I heard cannons go off in Eastern Market Thursday morning, 11 booms in a steady rhythm. It was around 7:45 or so. Do you know what it was? Maybe practice for the July 4 events? I’ve lived on the Hill for 10 years and I’ve never heard it.”
