    NEW YORK — Time for a tablet?People tend to hold onto tablets longer than smartphones, so take time to weigh your options. A major consideration is what phone you or your gift recipient already has. Although it's possible for Android owners to have Apple's iPads, for instance, there are advantages to sticking within the same system. You often can buy apps just once and share them across both devices, and you don't need to learn two different systems.

    BOSTON (AP) — A federal judge has turned down a request from lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seeking evidence about his older brother’s possible participation in a 2011 triple killing. The defense was seeking details about statements from Ibragim Todashev about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s role in the unsolved Waltham case. Todashev was shot and killed at his Florida home while being questioned by the FBI and Massachusetts State Police. Judge George O’Toole denied the defense motion Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON — Two unarmed black teenagers shot dead. Two very different reactions from President Barack Obama.In contrast to the deeply personal response that Obama delivered last year after a Florida jury found Trayvon Martin's killer not guilty, America's first black president was more restrained in speaking after a Missouri grand jury declined to indict Michael Brown's shooter.The cases have many differences, most notably that the bullets that took Brown's life came from a policeman's gun after a confrontation on the street.

Emergency personnel responded to the three-story Jamaica Plain building at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. A police spokeswoman confirmed the death, but said it’s unclear how far the workers fell.

    BOSTON (CBS) - Wally Pipp played first base for the Yankees from 1915-1925 and was considered one of the best sluggers of his era. But he’s not remembered for his prowess in the playing field. Pipp is best known for losing his job to Lou Gehrig after he asked to sit out of a game due to headache, according to legend. Gehrig went on to start 2,130 consecutive games. In present day, when somebody gets “Wally Pipp-ed” it means their job is being taken, which is exactly how The MMQB’s Greg Bedard describes the New England Patriots linebacker situation.

    BOSTON (AP) — A judge has agreed to delay the trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez in the 2012 slaying of two Boston men. Hernandez is charged with murder in the fatal shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after a chance encounter at a nightclub. His trial was scheduled to begin in May. Daniel Abreu (left) and Safiro Furtado (right).

Rather, in the past six months, the explosion of new biotech firms combined with the virtual stampete of big pharma companies who want to move or expand here has gobbled more than that amount of space.

This time, I’d like to go one step further to the second phase of a startup’s growth: age 2-5 years. This is a critical period. The initial excitement of starting a business is over, and now it’s time to scale up. What you do in this phase will make a big difference to how you are perceived by investors and customers. It’s an opportunity to either take off and soar, or fizzle out. Which camp you fall into will depend to a large extent on how you…

Following a failed Phase 3 trial for its Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy drug and a decision by GlaxoSmithKline to dump a partnership between the two companies, Prosensa lost around 90 percent of its total market value. Since then, however, Prosensa has stayed the course, and kept pushing ahead with its DMD prospect, setting up a likely meeting with an FDA advisory panel next year. And while there’s no telling what will happen at that point, at least one company thinks Prosensa has a shot…

    Another week goes by and another division leader falls at the hands of the New England Patriots. After the beginning of the season if you told most people the Patriots would come out of their current six-game stretch with a 3-3 record, most people would have taken that as a plus. Fast forward to the week of Thanksgiving and there is a legitimate chance the Patriots don’t lose a single game of their difficult mid-season schedule. They’ve already handled the likes of the Bears, Broncos, Colts, and Lions. All that remains are trips to Green Bay and San Diego. Even if they lost one of…

Heyman broke the news Sunday morning noting the deal would “come together quickly.” The Sox are poised to make some major free agent deals with Hanley and Pablo Sandoval. The Red Sox tendered a $95 million offer to Sandoval last week. Sandoval and his agent have not accepted the deal. Offensive and Defensive Power A signed contract with…

  • Bedard: Jerod Mayo Getting ‘Wally Pipp-ed’ By Dont’a Hightower

    ACE
    25 Nov 2014 | 12:53 pm
    BOSTON (CBS) - Wally Pipp played first base for the Yankees from 1915-1925 and was considered one of the best sluggers of his era. But he’s not remembered for his prowess in the playing field. Pipp is best known for losing his job to Lou Gehrig after he asked to sit out of a game due to headache, according to legend. Gehrig went on to start 2,130 consecutive games. In present day, when somebody gets “Wally Pipp-ed” it means their job is being taken, which is exactly how The MMQB’s Greg Bedard describes the New England Patriots linebacker situation. Donta Hightower has…

The team officially made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, nothing that the two-time All-Star signed a five-year contract that will have him in a Boston uniform through 2019. The Red Sox hold a club option for 2020. The team also announced that first baseman/catcher Ryan Lavarnway was designated for assignment in order to make room on the 40-man roster.

It’s a special time of year on the calendar, and it’s one of Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak’s favorite holidays.

  • Gresh & Zo: Should The Patriots Play Vanilla Against Green Bay?

    ACE
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:01 am
    BOSTON (CBS) - The Patriots are 9-2 and possess the best record in the AFC, and on Sunday they go up against the NFC North-leading Green Bay Packers on the road. It’s a highly anticipated matchup, as two of the game’s best quarterbacks square off in their first ever meeting as starters. But how important is this game really for the Patriots? It’s a non-conference, non-division game, and this is a contest New England could certainly afford to lose given their standing in the conference. And if this really is a Super Bowl preview like many are saying, should the Patriots be…

    Rob Goodwin
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:36 am
    Jon Lester is still a Red Sox. Still is a part of the team and the organization. This time of year is difficult because many players know they’re in the conversation at the deadline. Probably a part of many conversations. But at this point, the Red Sox are concerned that if Lester gets injured, they will lose the opportunity to trade him. What are the odds he’s going to get injured? Probably none. What’s the worst that could happen? He’s being held out of today’s game. The team has been extremely resistant to giving up prospects from the “deepest minor league system in…

Can you see a team going deep into the playoffs with Jonathan Herrera starting at short stop??? Left side of the infield should have been Holt and Bogaerts. I would have never signed Drew. He didn’t want the $14.1 million that no one else was going to offer. I would say Drew and Boras are darn lucky he’s playing at all. Workman has pitched darn good as…

    According to several reports, the league won’t be fining Lions center Dominic Raiola for his dirty play toward the end of the Patriots 34-9 victory over the Lions on Sunday. Raiola also claimed there wouldn't be a fine, and is moving on.While the Lions were taking a knee in surrender to run out the clock, Raiola dived at defensive end Zach Moore’s knees. Apparently, that maneuver, which was reportedly reviewed by the league, isn’t going to cost him, although it did draw the ire of the Patriots.

  • How a Small Business Can Cut and Keep Track of Energy Usage

    MO
    25 Nov 2014 | 8:34 am
    It’s hardly a secret that running a small business is extremely challenging. Aside from the associated fatigue and money worries, SMEs are under increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and slash energy usage – but many are puzzled about how best to proceed. One of the major contributing factors in the bid to cut energy usage, as reported in the Guardian recently, is the lack of transparency from energy suppliers around tariffs. Fears are rising that the efforts of SMEs are being held back due to the lack of advice about how to keep their costs under control, which is causing…

    AFP/Getty Images Two big lenders are rolling out loan-modification programs for student-loan borrowers who are struggling to make their payments. The new programs at Wells Fargo WFC, +0.54%   and Discover Financial Services DFS, +1.32%   mark a significant turning point for borrowers who until recently had few options to rework the terms of their existing loans. (In contrast, several flexible repayment options have existed with federal student loans allowing borrowers to shrink their monthly payments.) Here’s what is known so far about which student-loan borrowers will qualify: Wells…

Brandon University Students’ Union president Joel Springer said waiving fees could help make post-secondary education “a more affordable and appealing choice to perspective students.â€� “For many people looking at university, student debt can weigh heavily upon their decision to go,â€� he said. “While interest only makes up a portion of a student’s total debt, not having to worry about…

The contracts that Wells Fargo Corporation is selling to Navient represent loans that were made under the now-defunct Federal Family Education Loan program.

    Who has been the Patriots unsung hero thus far in 2014? For this week's GMC Playbook question, Marshall Faulk asks us "who has been the Patriots unsung hero thus far in 2014?" The Patriots have quite a few options, especially for a team that preaches the mantra of "do your job." Here are a few candidates: James Develin, FB: Has played 212 snaps on offense, is a special teams contributor, plays h-back, tight end, lead blocker. And he's one tough SOB. Michael Hoomanawanui, TE: "O-man," has only been targeted three times all season, but has contributed 351 snaps as a blocking tight end. Ryan…

    If the Jets release head coach Rex Ryan, would you be interested in hiring him? Or would you make him kiss the rings? (H/T ChuckScrimalli) Rex Ryan won't last the season. The Jets head coach has not had a winning season since 2010 (that's four seasons), and it's likely that this disastrous 2014 year is the final straw. To be clear, it's not entirely his fault. The general manager has done a terrible job of setting up talent for the team to succeed- not everyone can be Bill Belichick. The Jets lost their offensive identity once their offensive line hemorrhaged talent and youth, and then their…

In the end, however, Miami gave up three touchdowns in the final period to come up short.

In its announcement, Polaris was sure to highlight entrepreneurs from both the software and life sciences halves of its business.

    Shellye Archambeau In my previous article, I discussed the key risks and opportunities that startups face when they’re just starting out. This time, I’d like to go one step further to the second phase of a startup’s growth: age 2-5 years. This is a critical period. The initial excitement of starting a business is over, and now it’s time to scale up. What you do in this phase will make a big difference to how you are perceived by investors and customers. It’s an opportunity to either take off and soar, or fizzle out. Which camp you fall into will depend to a large extent on how you…
  • BioMarin Gambles $840M on Prosensa’s Duchenne Drug

    Ben Fidler
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:09 am
    Ben Fidler It wasn’t too long ago that Prosensa Holding was kicked to the curb by Wall Street investors. Following a failed Phase 3 trial for its Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy drug and a decision by GlaxoSmithKline to dump a partnership between the two companies, Prosensa lost around 90 percent of its total market value. Since then, however, Prosensa has stayed the course, and kept pushing ahead with its DMD prospect, setting up a likely meeting with an FDA advisory panel next year. And while there’s no telling what will happen at that point, at least one company thinks Prosensa has a shot…

    A few weeks ago after a visit to the LEGO store in the mall, we were given a coupon for a free ticket to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Since then, Gavin repeatedly asked when we’d be going to LEGOLAND. When we were invited to a media event in Boston, I decided to keep it a surprise, telling him just before we left, and then he didn’t believe me that we were actually going! Someone doesn’t believe we are going to LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Boston, right now. He thinks we are going to the YMCA.

    Tis the season for learning tablets! So, for those of you who are looking to score a deal on a tablet for your kids during the holiday season, I’ve been having some fun with the new LeapFrog LeapPad3. We were fortunate to receive one free to utilize, prior to our trip to Beaches Turks and Caicos for the #BeachesMoms Social Media on the Sand conference.  Given that it was Gavin’s first time on an airplane, the LeapPad3 and a pair of headphones were the first items I put in his backpack! The LeapFrog LeapPad tablets have evolved over time, but to date, the LeapPad3 is not only…

    New Pup on Paw Patrol Everest! Today might as well be a national holiday in our house. A new pup debuts on Paw Patrol, Everest the Husky. We don’t have cable and watch most shows on Hulu and Netflix. What we do own is a season pass to Paw Patrol. Gavin is in love with the show and Paw Patrol toys have been flying off store shelves since the Spring. When I told him there was a new pup, he had a dozen questions, including, “What type of vehicle do you think he’ll drive?!?!” Check your DVR’s and listings for the newest Nickelodeon Paw Patrol episode, “The New…

    Luggage Forward Review on ToyQueen.com As one of the inaugural #BeachesMoms, my family and I recently returned home from a long weekend at Beaches Turks and Caicos for the Social Media on the Sand Conference. As the summer months dissipated into cooler Fall weather here in the North East, I began packing our luggage months before the trip. Nothing made me happier to wash and pack my summer clothes instead of storing them in the closet for a long winter ahead. My husband is a pretty seasoned international traveler and suggested we consider international luggage shipping services given that we…

    Tara García Mathewson and Leonardo March Cambridge, Mass. - Housekeepers at the Harvard-owned DoubleTree Suites by Hilton complain of injury at a far higher rate than their peers at other hotels. They are responsible for cleaning more rooms than their fellow housekeepers in the area. And, in a year and a half of asking, they have not been able to get DoubleTree management to agree to a fair process as they try to form a union. Their response Thursday was a one-day strike.

    Sarah CadoretteSubject to the lore of the cruel hazing rituals of its secret societies, and the backdrop for dozens of movies about the seedy underbelly of Ivy life, Harvard University is no stranger to controversy. But what local activists have noticed in the past few years is a more systemic and dangerous issue: the militarization of Harvard’s campus, and its tendency to arrest anyone who dissents from their version of veritas. Three recent incidents expose the extent to which Harvard will go to protect its reputation, though these are not the first, or only, examples:

    Take a moment to gather yourself and observe your surroundings. If you have just been involved in a Boston motorcycle accident, you could be in danger of suffering further injury. Try to get yourself out of the roadway right away. Then, assess if you have been hurt. If you or anyone else has suffered an injury in the crash, you must call the authorities and you are required by law to remain at the scene. If your head, neck or back is seriously injured, you should remain still and wait for help. If, however, you are capable of moving around without causing additional harm, it is advisable to…

    There are numerous immediate side effects of brain trauma. Victims of car accidents and slip-and-falls who strike their head may suffer from headaches, memory loss, nausea and even physical and mental disabilities. Depending on the severity of the trauma, these types of symptoms may go away with proper treatment or they may linger. As our understanding of brain injuries continues to grow, we are learning more about the long-term effects of brain trauma including their relation to memory loss and dementia. A new study found that traumatic brain injuries (TBI) later in life could be linked to…

  • Advancements Made in Brain Injury Recovery

    Brain trauma is among the worst injuries you can suffer in a Boston car crash or slip-and-fall accident. The resulting symptoms are often debilitating and long-term. Some victims of brain injuries are never able to fully recover or to return to the life they had before the accident. Others are only able to return to a semblance of normalcy after months of physical and occupational therapy. Therefore, any advancement made in the treatment of brain injury is noteworthy. According to a report in The Columbian, there are 10 trauma centers in North America that are participating in a National…
