    SEWARD, Alaska — President Barack Obama stared down a melting glacier in Alaska on Tuesday in a dramatic use of his presidential pulpit to sound the alarm on climate change.From a distance, Exit Glacier appears as a river of white and blue flowing down through the mountains toward lower terrain. In fact, it's just the opposite. The 2-mile-long chock of solid ice has been retreating at a faster and faster pace in recent years - more than 800 feet since 2008, satellite tracking shows.

Garinger, who is the state’s first child advocate but is stepping down from her post this month after seven years, joined…

    A nanny who had been accused of killing a Cambridge baby in her care two years ago is being deported, one day after those charges were dropped. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says 37-year-old Aisling Brady McCarthy turned herself in Tuesday, and that her deportation is being expedited at her request. McCarthy came to the U.S. legally 13 years ago but overstayed her visa. She was indicted for homicide in 2013 in connection with the death of 1-year-old Rehma Sabir. But on Monday, the Middlesex district attorney’s office announced it was dropping the charges against McCarthy,…

    WILMINGTON (CBS) – Bruins forward Brad Marchand seemingly set the bar for how many goals he could score in a season when he found the back of the net 24 times last season, one year removed from scoring 25. But there might be room for improvement now that Marchand has corrected an injury he battled through all of last season by having surgery this summer to repair torn tendons in his right elbow. Marchand suffered the injury late in the regular season in 2013-14. Without using the injury as an excuse for his inconsistent 2014-15 season Tuesday, Marchand acknowledged that he was being held…

    Though Michigan’s startup community has experienced a ton of growth in the past 10 years, the state remains a place that is “underserved” when it comes to investment capital, says Chris Rizik, CEO and fund manager at Renaissance Venture Capital. With that in mind, Renaissance partnered with the Michigan Venture Capital Association for the past year to create the Michigan Immersion Days program as a way of luring unfamiliar investors to the state and raising awareness of the many different investment opportunities here.

    Several years ago, Genzyme developed a drug called plerixafor (Mozobil) that’s used to help with bone marrow transplants. Now a group of folks that helped push that drug forward have reunited for a new effort—to use a similar type of therapy for solid tumors and rare diseases. As Xconomy reported earlier today, X4 Pharmaceuticals was started up in 2012 and is led by Paula Ragan (president and CEO), who spent six years at Genzyme. She confirmed today that the company has indeed raised a $37.5 million Series A, adding to roughly $1.5 million in seed funding. While the seed dollars came…

    1 Sep 2015 | 3:55 am
    As top scientists head toward a summit later this year to hammer out rules governing the use of gene editing, companies developing one form of the technology, known as CRISPR-Cas9, for human medicine continue to raise cash hand over fist. The latest is Intellia Therapeutics, of Cambridge, MA, which announced today a $70 million round of funding. Intellia made its debut less than a year ago, but it has already forged an alliance with international drug firm Novartis (NYSE: NVS) to use CRISPR-Cas9 for two kinds of treatments: those that would re-engineer a patient’s own T cells, and those…

  • The Hanley Ramirez Experiment, In General, Must End

    kjackman
    1 Sep 2015 | 5:08 pm
    When you spend $88 million on a player he better be worth every red cent. Hanley Ramirez is not worth the high-priced contract he signed with the Red Sox. Hanley Ramirez reminds me of a movie from the 1980s starring a young Tom Hanks, called The Money Pit. A newlywed couple buys what they think is their dream house, only to find that it is littered with bad wiring, poor construction, and a renovation that goes south before it even begins. Ramirez has not lived up to all the hype. Last winter Red Sox Nation hoped that 2015 would be the season of our dreams, only to find it had a lost,…
  • Red Sox Trade Alejandro De Aza to San Francisco Giants

    1 Sep 2015 | 4:57 pm
    Yesterday the Red Sox traded Alejandro De Aza to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for minor league reliever Luis Ysla. According to a tweet from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Red Sox will still have to pay $650K of De Aza’s remaining salary as part of the deal. This is the second time De Aza has been traded this year, after Boston acquired him earlier in the season from the Baltimore Orioles. At the time the Red Sox were still in contention but needed outfield help and De Aza filled that void. During his time in Boston De Aza performed above expectations; in 161 at bats he hit…
  • Loui Eriksson Entering Contract Season

    Kyle Benson
    31 Aug 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Loui Eriksson will be always be remembered as ‘the guy the Bruins got for Tyler Seguin’. When Eriksson first came to town, the expectations were high but the results did not match the expectations. Seguin went off to Dallas and scored the highest point total of his career, 84 points, which still stands today. Unfortunately, Eriksson’s 1st season in Black and Gold was abysmal. In the 61 games he played in the ’13-’14 season, he scored only 37 points and even worse he only scored 10 goals. You read that right, 10. That total was very underwhelming considering he used to scored 63, 71,…

    BOSTON (CBS) — Brad Marchand was just one of many disappointments for the Bruins in the failed 2014-15 campaign. He did lead the team with 24 goals, but totaled only 42 points and went on a 15-game goal-less drought down the stretch. But it’s now known that Marchand played the entire 2014-15 season, and some of 2013-14, with tendon tears in his right elbow. At the Bruins’ practice facility at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, he revealed to Matt Kalman on NHL.com that he had surgery to repair multiple tears in the offseason. The injury first occurred before the 2014 playoffs,…

    The Red Sox are 7 games out. They have three outfielders who are more than solid defensively and another who can be one of the better hitters in the game. The starting pitching is coming through with solid performances. The infield is making solid contributions offensively and defensively. The team has begun what will be a historic winning streak to gain ground on all teams ahead of them. When Dustin Pedroia returns around September 10th, the Red Sox will be in the hunt for the second Wild Card spot. Dave Dombrowski (and Ben Cherrington) may have some work to do – improve the bullpen.

    Offense won’t be a problem. Pitching will be the problem. But only if offense is a problem. They need an ace. A number one. But Porcello is rising star. Miley threw 200 innings. Clay can be awesome. We have Uehara and Tazawa. Ross, Ogando can fit the bill. So many things didn’t pan out for this team. Disappointments are everywhere, both individual and collective. The organization took gambles. Usually if you take gambles, and have contingencies, and something pans out. Not this time. Right field was one. Shane Victorino – a true hero in 2013 was one.

    The 4 p.m. deadline came and went, and the Patriots complied, trimming their roster down to 75. To do so, they waived offensive lineman Chris Barker and linebacker D.J. Lynch. They also moved injured fullback James Develin (broken tibia) and cornerback Darryl Roberts (wrist) to injured reserve.The Pats might have held out on both the veteran Develin, an important role player, and the rookie Roberts, who showed a lot of promise, but needed the roster spots.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said no final decision had been made on imposing sanctions, which could strain relations with Russia further and, if they came soon, cast a pall over a state visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping in September. The Washington Post first reported the Obama administration was considering sanctioning Chinese targets, possibly within the next few weeks, and…

While one player wouldn’t seem to have such an undue effect on his team’s winning and losing, consider this: San Francisco has won two of every three games Pence has started this year (34-17, .667), but after last night’s 14-inning loss to Los Angeles, the club is only 35-45 (.438) when Pence hasn’t started, due to a series of…

    Patriots place 2 players on PUP, 1 on IR, and waived 2 more players. Roster now at the 75-man limit The Patriots dropped their roster to 75 by 4pm today. Some of the moves made today were placing DT Chris Jones and LB Dane Fletcher on the reserve Physically Unable to Perform list, CB Darryl Roberts on injured reserve, and waived OL Chris Barker and LB DJ Lynch. That currently leaves the team at 38 players on offense and 34 on defense.

    Patriots make another WR addition, as the team is looking for bodies to play the 4th preseason game Earlier today, the Patriots made a trade with the New Orleans Saints to pick up former Oklahoma speedster Jalen Saunders. The Patriots made another move at the position, claiming DaVaris Daniels after the Minnesota Vikings released him for their own cuts to shrink the roster to 75. The Patriots top receivers are Edelman, LaFell, Dobson, Wayne, Amendola, and Slater. It's unlikely those guys play much of the final preseason game against the New York Giants. Instead we'll see Jimmy Garoppolo…

    Per the Herald's Jeff Howe, the New England Patriots will have their starting center in week 1. Consider the New England Patriots being safe. They're trying to protect their assets. Center Bryan Stork didn't play against the Carolina Panthers for the same reason that tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Julian Edelman sat out. Because we're on to the Pittsburgh Steelers. According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, Stork is ready now, and has been ready for a while, but the Patriots don't want to risk their starting center. Bryan Stork cleared his concussion protocol a while ago, could…

    1 Sep 2015 | 11:52 am
    The New England Patriots traded away a player who didn't have a chance of making the roster. He is now the starting right guard for the San Francisco 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers have named Jordan Devey the team's starting right guard. The 49ers acquired Devey from the New England Patriots earlier this offseason in exchange for back-up tight end Asante Cleveland. It is unclear whether the Patriots will be held at fault for any mishaps by the 49ers offensive line. Devey was benched after a rough opening to the 2014 season, and he didn't see the field after a disastrous week 7 game…

Now a group of folks that helped push that drug forward have reunited for a new effort—to use a similar type of therapy for solid tumors and rare diseases. As Xconomy reported earlier today, X4 Pharmaceuticals was started up in 2012 and is led by Paula Ragan (president and CEO), who spent six years at Genzyme. She confirmed today that the company has indeed raised a $37.5 million Series A, adding to roughly $1.5 million in seed funding. While the seed dollars came…
