  • Forecast: Sunny Today, April Showers Ahead

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:27 am
    April arrived on a quiet and cold note, and although there is going to be an abundance of sunshine today, the air will remain cool. The cold nights are refreezing the snow and water, causing what’s left of the snowbanks to melt slowly. Temperatures tonight will again fall well below freezing in most areas. Boston might stay around 29 degrees, but many suburbs will sink into the mid-20s. It does look like a milder flow of air, along with some showers, will move into the region Thursday until at least the early afternoon Saturday. A storm system over the weekend will bring rain and wet…

    The only thing more critical than winning for the Boston Bruins was doing it in regulation. Milan Lucic scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:09 left as Boston rallied to beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 Tuesday night and maintained its hold on the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. “That makes it even bigger, especially with a team trying to catch up to you,” said Lucic, who also assisted on David Pastrnak’s goal earlier in the third that tied it at 2-2. Florida was one of two teams with a realistic chance at catching the Bruins, who held a three-point lead on Ottawa…

    It’s no April fool’s joke. Parents in Cranston, Rhode Island may be left scrambling to find backup care for their children this Friday. The district could be forced to cancel classes because they won’t have enough teachers. The reason? More than 200 hundred teachers have requested the day off to observe Good Friday. Earlier this month the teachers filed a lawsuit because their original requests to have Good Friday off were denied. The teacher’s contracts allow them to take two days off for religious reasons each year. This fall teachers were allowed to take off two Jewish holidays,…

According to CoLucid’s IPO prospectus, the company could raise up to $86 million. But that figure is just a placeholder.

    According to ESPN Boston’s Gordon Edes, a number of teams have begun preliminary negotiations with the Red Sox over Allen Craig, who can play the outfield, first base and third base. Sure, Craig was a disaster after coming over in the John Lackey trade, but he’s a definite major league hitter with a good amount of pop in a league with a dearth of it. In limited time with the Red Sox, his first at-bats as a player in the American League, Craig hit .128 in 29 games. He’s a better player than that, having hit .300 or better the previous three years with the Cardinals. Craig,…

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.

She has broken par in 28 consecutive rounds, one short of the record set by Annika Sorenstam in 2004.As she made her way around Mission Hills for her first practice round at the ANA Inspiration, swing coach David Leadbetter heard a peculiar sound from his teenage pupil.

    Imagine a world where obesity is a disease of the past. A world where type 2 diabetes is a distant memory, and strokes caused by excess fat are so rare they’re long down the list of emergency room diagnosis. Imagine a pill – one designed from your very own DNA – that could not only help you shed unwanted pounds, but could actually prevent you from packing them on in the first place. It’s an alternate universe to the one we live in now. Obesity worldwide has more than doubled since 1980. Almost 40 percent of adults everywhere are overweight or obese.

  • 2015 NFL Draft: Patriots Well-Attended at FSU Pro Day

    Rich Hill
    31 Mar 2015 | 9:02 am
    The Patriots have sent a large contingent of coaches to the Florida State Pro Day. The Patriots have a real interest in Florida State University. FSU won the 2013-2014 College Football National Championship and feature one of the deepest rosters of NFL talent in the country. New England dipped into the well last season with a fourth round pick on center Bryan Stork, who instantly became one of the Patriots most reliable interior linemen as a rookie. This year, it looks like New England will be going back. Per multiple sources, the Patriots have former offensive line coach and assistant…

    The Patriots are in a pickle when it comes to their linebacker position. How should they move forward? New England finds itself in a special situation for 2015. They feature the best linebacker tandem in the entire league in Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins, and they're returning captain Jerod Mayo from his second consecutive season ending injury. This trio could be the best grouping of Patriots linebackers of all time, and that's not hyperbole. But it could also be a major work in progress. Mayo was still rounding into form from his 2013 injury when he was taken out last year, while…

    31 Mar 2015 | 4:00 am
    ESPN's draft guru offers his latest thoughts on the Patriots in the draft. We're starting to see the first wave of post-free agency mock drafts and, let's be serious, mocks from before free agency don't really mean much beyond getting to know prospect names. We've seen the Patriots address their running back position, they've signed their premier safety, and they've lost both starting cornerbacks. Mock drafts that had been projecting defensive line talent might now be pointing to the cornerback position as the hole of greatest need on the Patriots roster. ESPN's Todd McShay tries to fix the…

    You do not need to get drafted to become a successful player. The college player Draft is the NFL's fountain of youth. Exactly one month from today, the 2015 version will take place in Chicago and the New England Patriots will try to bolster their championship roster via filling holes and creating depth. However, as the team has shown in the past, this is not the only way to infuse the roster with young talent. There is another one: undrafted rookie free agents. The 2014 season is the latest example of the Patriots' ability to skillfully search the pool of undrafted rookies to find…

But he rarely dishes out praise about his players. He doesn’t want it going to their heads. During the UConn women’s basketball press conference for the Elite Eight game versus the Dayton Flyers, Auriemma said that Moriah Jefferson was the best point guard in the country.

    “You don’t have to be the expert at everything you do, you just have to have a willingness and a desire to never give up.” – Adam Stewart, CEO Sandals & Beaches Resorts I don’t think there is a more fitting quote said by a CEO to over 125 bloggers seated in the same room at a social media conference, but it can strike a chord with any human being who ever had an idea or a thought to make a difference in the world. In October I attended the Social Media on the Sand Conference hosted by Beaches Turks and Caicos. I know you are wondering, why should I even…

    Jason PramasMarch 20 was the seventh anniversary of more-or-less continuous publication of Open Media Boston. I say "more or less" because we have had a number of periods where our publication of metro news and views has slowed to a trickle for a variety of reasons. Usually because of my situation at the time.

    Alternatives for Community & EnvironmentSeeing the deplorable state of the MBTA this winter is like watching a poorly-made slasher film where the ending is obvious to everyone except the blundering, oblivious characters. Someone at a party neglects to close a door or other guests decide it's a good idea to explore the cellar during a black out - cut to the remaining partiers being just astounded when bodies start piling up in the corner. The worst part? This crime scene was preventable.

    Richard Moskowitz, M. D.Because I keep getting frantic calls from parents about this, and even such usually sensible sources as NPR and National Geographic are calling out "anti-vaxxers" as irrational, deluded, or even anti-scientific, the worst insult of all, hitherto applied only to climate deniers and those other yahoos and neanderthals of the Republican persuasion, I feel compelled to throw my own two cents in, and to try to inject at least a modicum of common-sense and sanity into the mix, so I don't need to repeat the same things over and over, even though I have to admit that I've been…

    Whether you plan on riding or storing your motorcycle this winter, the cold weather can wreak havoc on the bike. It is possible to ride in temperatures below freezing, but you will have to take precautionary measures to ensure that you and your motorcycle are not damaged. Salt, sand, mud, and ice can rust and degrade the metal parts of your motorcycle. If you choose to ride during the winter, it is important that you park it over night in someplace dry. Take the time to wipe it down after a ride. Try to remove any salt or sand that you picked up on the roadway before leaving it over night.
