    The Boston area is in the midst of what could be its driest May on record — since 1944. According to The Boston Globe, “only 0.31 inches of precipitation have fallen so far this month, less than a 10th of the average.” National Weather Service hydrologist Nicole Belk says so far this month the dry conditions have only caused the soil to dry out. But, she told WBUR, “If we were not to get considerable rain going forward, it would exacerbate conditions pretty quickly.” March and April were also abnormally dry for the region.

    After a warm and somewhat muggy night, we have one more July-like day before it’s back to more typical temperatures for Friday. A cold front pushing eastward today will eventually move off the coast and usher in drier and cooler air. The humidity will still be noticeable all day, but later this evening you should start to feel the air become less humid and I don’t think air conditioning will be necessary overnight. There will be showers and some storms popping up this afternoon and evening from west to east. Some of these could be accompanied by gusty winds, heavy rain and the outside…

Torii Hunter had a two-run single and Joe Mauer added an RBI single to cap the Twins’ third-inning rally for a 3-2 lead.

Some call it a rescue by private business, others view it as an example of Franklin Roosevelt’s multi-layered and often-mysterious leadership. How we see this episode surely is of immense relevance to how the coming revolution in energy will be handled.

Wednesday is the 10 day deadline for both sides to set a date for an appeal, the appeal does not have t be heard in that window. The date can be pushed back if both sides mutually agree to do so.

    28 May 2015 | 2:41 am
    BERN, Switzerland — For months, American and Swiss investigators worked in secret to prepare for the raids that would shake the soccer world.They knew that the moment to strike would come when FIFA, the sport's governing body, held its annual congress in Zurich, gathering all of its top officials — including the main suspects in a far-reaching U.S. corruption probe.Any leak could have given the game away, allowing international soccer officials to scramble out of Switzerland or time to destroy important evidence before authorities could seize it.

    MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin says the United States is meddling in FIFA's affairs in an attempt to take the 2018 World Cup away from his country.Putin said in televised comments Thursday that it is "odd" that the probe was launched at the request of U.S. officials for crimes which do not involve its citizens and did not happen in the United States.In a separate probe, Swiss prosecutors are investigating the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 tournament to Qatar.

    With Champions League and Premier League titles still seemingly way beyond the team, Arsenal is again relying on an FA Cup triumph to salvage some silverware from its season.For the second straight year, Arsenal heads into the final of the world's oldest club competition as the big favorite against a team that has ended the season fighting against relegation from the Premier League.In 2014, it was Hull. On Saturday, Aston Villa will provide the opposition at Wembley Stadium — and the pressure on Arsenal will be nowhere near as intense as 12 months ago.

    19 May 2015 | 12:57 pm
    Mr. Kraft – I have great feelings of warmth, gratitude and respect for you as owner of the New England Patriots, and for all that you’ve done for professional football in our region. Purchasing the team, hiring Bill Belichick, building a new stadium, overseeing four Super Bowl Championship teams has been an exhilarating experience for someone whose first Patriots experience came with Ron Erhardt at the helm. So what exactly have you accomplished? Tom Brady is, at the moment, still suspended for four games. The team has lost a 5-10 year starter in the 2016 first round draft pick,…

More than this degree in society’s de-education of my intelligence was too much to bear. The price for a further dulling of intelligence required I assume too many others’ degrees of BS, BMs, acidic PhDs of borrowed knowledge.

  • Navy Clears New England Patriots LS Joe Cardona for 2015 Season

    27 May 2015 | 11:23 pm
    The Patriots might finally have their long snapper! When the New England Patriots selected long snapper Joe Cardona in the 5th round of the NFL Draft, a lot of people scratched their heads. A fifth round pick on a specialist is excessive to some teams. And when that long snapper is coming out of Navy, with a five year service requirement for graduates, it seemed like a potential draft pick throwaway. The standard for similar athletes is two years of military service, with an additional six years of work in the reserves, although it's an ad hoc process and no waiver of required time is…

Now I'm not knocking Marima at all here.  Her links are THE GOLD STANDARD, and in fact I'll even try to emulate her formatting as much as I can.  Nothing of course, can compare to the original.

    An in-depth look at the Patriots vying for only a couple of spots in the New England secondary. Over the past five seasons, the New England Patriots have held between nine and eleven defensive backs on the roster, and this year shouldn't be any different. While the players on the depth chart might not of the same caliber as those in the past, there is still a clear need for these spots to be filled. Smart money would be on a cornerback not currently on the Patriots roster making the opening week roster- but if we evaluate the New England depth chart as it currently stands, we see a fair…

    27 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    The Patriots have been looking for a versatile defensive end and they have it with Geneo Grissom. There was a time last season when Chandler Jones was injured and the newly acquired Akeem Ayers was thrust into a leading role. Jones and Ayers are two entirely different players and it showed in their utilization on the field. Chandler has an ability to kick inside on passing downs to generate pressure against interior lineman, and he has an undeniable strength and stoutness to hold the edge and force rushers inside. Ayers played defensive end out of necessity, but also showed the flexibility to…

Some call it a rescue by private business, others view it as an example of Franklin Roosevelt’s multi-layered and often-mysterious leadership. How we see this episode surely is of immense relevance to how the coming revolution in energy will be handled. America’s World War II production miracle, an epoch in the history of innovation, effectively began 75 years ago today, on May 28,…

    4 May 2015 | 9:09 am
    Your spinal cord is responsible for carrying information between your peripheral nervous system and your brain. The bones in your back and neck called vertebrae protect your spinal cord. If these bones take a sudden severe blow, it could result in trauma to the spinal cord, disrupting communication between your limbs and brain. This can happen in a Boston car accident, pedestrian accident, motorcycle crash, or even a slip-and-fall accident if the victim’s vertebrae are compressed, crushed, dislocated, or fractured. The symptoms of a spinal cord injury are often severe and permanent.

  • Harvard Recommends Better Police Reports on Bike Accidents

    Tom Kiley

    In recent years, the number of bike riders has increased and so have the number of bike accidents. According to a Harvard study, bike commuters nationwide have increased 62 percent from 2000 to 2013. Consequently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 726 bicyclists were killed and 49,000 were injured in 2012. One way to reduce the number of bike accidents is to carefully review police reports to determine the cause of crashes and how they can be prevented. It is helpful to understand exactly what caused a collision to evaluate how that type of accident could…
