Thursday is a nice late October day with highs in the 50s. It will feel cooler than yesterday for sure, but with the sunshine it will be a nice day to be outside.

    “There’s only one poll that matters, and that’s on Election Day.” Candidates and campaign strategists often use the hackneyed, largely inaccurate oversimplification to deflect attention from polls showing them trailing. It’s not accurate because if the polls show you are consistently trailing, your odds of winning are demonstrably worse. But this year, there may be something to it. Looking at the totality of the polling on the Massachusetts governor’s race, it’s hard to know how the odds stack up, with polls that show many different possible outcomes, many of them…

Rajon Rondo is still not 100 percent after breaking a broken bone in his left hand five weeks ago, but he didn’t need to be in Boston’s 121-105 season opening win over the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. Deemed good to go about 90 minutes ahead of game time, Rondo slipped a wrap on his hand and went to work. The end result: 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in 29 minutes. It was vintage Rondo as he flirted with his 20th career triple double in the victory, leading the fast-paced Celtics down the floor and setting up teammates for…

Just down the road from this annual New Hampshire event, two large off-campus parties of about a thousand people merged, creating a perfect storm of holiday horror. Police were dispatched, so the crowd threw liquor and beer bottles, billiard balls, and rocks at officers, leading to minimal injuries. Thanks to crowd handling, this unquiet riot had a somewhat happy ending. So to those on campus, here are a few tips for future Halloween havoc: 1. Pumpkins…

    Ben Fidler When you’ve got osteoarthritis in your knee or hip, there’s a good chance you may have to get that joint replaced—a costly procedure often followed by a lengthy stretch of rehab. Short of that, you may get some drugs to deal with the pain, but they don’t tackle the real cause of the problem, that the cartilage that normally cushions your joints is either damaged or gone, or the bone itself is damaged. Cork, Ireland-based SurgaColl Technologies, a small startup recently spun out of Dublin’s Royal College of Surgeons, aims to do just that. It’s developing an…

    Tim Wirzburger
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    The Bruins lost to the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Tuesday night after they let a 3-1 lead slip through their fingers in the third period. They got goals from Milan Lucic and two from rookie Seth Griffith, but it wasn’t enough to stop an implosive collapse against a dogger Minnesota offense. It was a frustrating loss for the Black and Gold and really epitomized what could go wrong for them without captain Zdeno Chara in the lineup. According to Weymouth, MA native and Wild forward Charlie Coyle, their game plan was to wear down the Bruins defense. And it worked. They dumped the puck in deep,…
  • Boston Bruins: A History and Their Effect on Fans

    KC Downey
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:51 pm
    The Boston Bruins have a long and storied history as New England’s premiere entry in the National Hockey League. From the glory years of the Bobby Orr era through the current cup-worthy group, the team has satisfied a puck hungry fan base with its brand of exciting, hard-nosed play. Though their fans are extremely loyal, a drought of Stanley Cup wins running from 1972 into the early 2000s began to try their patience. The team had become mired in mediocrity, and no attempt to bring in fresh personnel or coaching staff seemed to help. Finally, in 2007, Peter Chiarelli was hired as GM and…

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:33 pm
    The 2014-15 NBA season tipped off less than 24 hours ago, with the reining NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs squeaking out a thriller against their in-state rival Dallas Mavericks. The Boston Celtics’ season kicks off on Wednesday when they take on Kevin Garnett and the Brooklyn Nets. The C’s are coming off an abysmal 25-57 record last season, which was tied for the fourth worse record in the entire NBA. Las Vegas does not have much higher hopes for this year’s team, as the over/under on regular season wins is 26.5. Will the C’s go over that 26.5 number, or are they in line for…

    I’ll make this quick. It was one of those weeks for me last week. So I’m a bit frosty toward fantasy football right now. Sometimes there is nothing you can do. Sometimes, for example, you lose in all five of your fantasy football leagues. To top it off, my week 8 picks were very hit or miss. Week 8 Recap: In today’s NFL when a quarterback only throws 17 passes it means they must have left the in the first quarter with an injury. In the case of Kyle Orton he only completed 10 of those 17 passes, but four of those went for touchdowns as the Bills dominated the Jets. Colt McCoy…

    Mike Marsh
    29 Oct 2014 | 10:56 am
    Although Seth Griffith has done a decent job playing on the right side of David Krejci and Milan Lucic with an impressive game Tuesday night against Minnesota, it still feels that an upgrade at the positon is necessary if the Bruins wish to regain the production lost from 30-plus goal scorer Jarome Iginla last season. Their offence to this point has been adequate, but it is clear that the Bruins are lacking the type of consistent player that should be flourishing on the top line of one of the league’s best teams. The trade deadline is still a while away, but it is necessary to start…

Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October, the seventh time the Patriots quarterback has earned an AFC Player of the Month honor and first since 2011. Brady led the Patriots to a 4-0 record in October, and saw his offense go from being ranked 29th in the NFL to 10th. He completed 100 of his 144 passes for 1,268 yards with 14 touchdowns while throwing no interceptions, and finished the month with a quarterback rating of 129.1. Brady’s 14…
  • Rondo Returns To Form, Leads Way In Celtics Opening Night Win

    30 Oct 2014 | 6:47 am
    BOSTON (CBS) — He’s back. Rajon Rondo is still not 100 percent after breaking a broken bone in his left hand five weeks ago, but he didn’t need to be in Boston’s 121-105 season opening win over the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. Deemed good to go about 90 minutes ahead of game time, Rondo slipped a wrap on his hand and went to work. The end result: 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in 29 minutes. It was vintage Rondo as he flirted with his 20th career triple double in the victory, leading the fast-paced Celtics down the floor and setting up teammates for…

  • Red Sox Wrong to Scratch Lester

    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…

You bring in Stephen Drew to play short…for $10 million…only against righties… and Jonathan Herrera starts at short against righties… Really??? 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…

They have bounced back with four wins in their past six games, but still need to play with more consistency as the season wears on.  Boston is coming off an easy win over the Maple Leafs in…

  • Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:15 am
    The Patriots quarterback might not have won the weekly award, but he certainly claimed the whole month. The Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month, tying Peyton Manning for the most monthly awards in history, but you know that Brady would trade them all for another victory. Brady won the award for the month of October without having won any of the weekly prizes. Brady posted the 4th best October by a quarterback all time, which is why he probably narrowly edged out Peyton for the title (Peyton posted the 6th best October all time). Here's how the…

    The Patriots defense has added new faces and lost a few old ones; how should they move forward? The Patriots have lost linebacker Jerod Mayo for the season. Defensive end Chandler Jones is out for an indefinite period of time (hopefully for a couple more weeks, but who knows at this point). Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga should be out for the next few weeks, too. In response, the Patriots have made a considerable number of midseason moves. New England traded for linebackers Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas, and signed defensive lineman Alan Branch. The team had a need to bolster their…

The release of Skinner comes as a mild surprise. The 6'2" 250 lbs Mississippi State prodct had made a strong impression after being promoted from the practice squad on September 13th. He had the ability to play on special teams and contribute as a run stuffer in base packages. His deficencies in pass coverage were glaring, although…

Short of that, you may get some drugs to deal with the pain, but they don’t tackle the real cause of the problem, that the cartilage that normally cushions your joints is either damaged or gone, or the bone itself is damaged. Cork, Ireland-based SurgaColl Technologies, a small startup recently spun out of Dublin’s Royal College of Surgeons, aims to do just that. It’s developing an…

    When you have kids, a dinner out in a time crunch doesn’t always have to be a not so healthy drive-thru option. Sometimes the thought of entering a nice sit-down restaurant with waitstaff service isn’t viable either because at least when my son is hungry, he’s totally happy and then all of a sudden he’s in major meltdown mode. Then you are screaming at each other to just find food, while your kid wants macaroni and cheese, but you’d like Chinese and your husband wants Indian food. I was recently hosted for dinner with a few other bloggers at Noodles and Company…

    Guess what!?! DC Super Hero character Batman is now featured in LEGO Duplo sets like this one, the LEGO Batman Batcave Adventure!

After children build the Batcave, Batman, complete with his blue cape and mask, can fire the Batarang from his Batwing to defeat and capture Catwoman! Within 15 minutes or so Gavin had the Batcave ready, with only a little bit of help. Gavin was enthralled with using the pulley, but  I myself  had my share of fun using the Batarang to knock…

    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.

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…
