    BOSTON (CBS) — It’s been an awfully long time since the Patriots have suited up for a game, thanks to last week’s Thursday game, but fortunately, it’s time for football again. The New England Patriots will host the Chicago Bears at Gillette Stadium at 1 p.m. in a game that means a lot for both teams. For the Bears, a win Sunday would go a long way in settling things down before their bye week. The Bears have lost three of their last four games and appear to be on the brink. A win Sunday, and they might be OK; a loss, and it’ll be two weeks of panic and…

    A bold-faced name. A narrative-changing poll. Two head-to-head debates sounding the gun on the final sprint for redemption. Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker went toe-to-toe this week, their paths crossing even outside the TV studios where they made their broadest appeals, seeking any leg up in a race for governor that’s been too close to call. Too close, that is, until Thursday, when the Boston Globe released a poll showing Baker opening a nine-point lead on the attorney general. If you believe it (and the Coakley campaign says you shouldn’t) then the national…
  • Mayor Walsh Vetoes $20,000 City Council Raises

    WBUR Newsroom
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has vetoed a $20,000 pay raise for city councilors, his office has confirmed. On a 9-4 vote earlier this month, the council voted to give itself a nearly 23 percent pay raise, effective January 2016. The raise would hike councilor pay from $87,500 to $107,500. Walsh had 15 days to act on the vote. The Boston City Council needs a two-thirds majority to override Walsh’s veto; the earlier 9-4 margin, if maintained in another vote, would suffice. Kate Norton, a spokeswoman for Walsh, told The Associated Press that Walsh plans to request an independent analysis of…

    BOSTON (CBS) – Do you know your blood type? The answer could determine your risk of certain health problems later in life. In fact, as Dr. Mallika Marshall reports, one type has been linked to a higher risk of memory loss. TripAdvisor employees donating blood at a Red Cross blood drive in Newton were surprised to hear that their blood type could affect their health. “I didn’t know that blood type was tied to disease risk,” one woman said. For example, people with type A blood may be more likely to get heart disease. And type B? Perhaps a higher risk of throat cancer. Now a new…

With Election Day edging closer, Coakley (D) and Baker (R) have firmed up their respective stances on the arts. It would be nice to think that the engagement is of their own fruition. It would be nice, but their piping up is undoubtedly prompted by nonprofit arts advocacy group MASSCreative’s second Arts Matter Day, a social media campaign where Massachusetts creatives are tasked to tweet why…

He’s moved to London, put out a couple of records with two different bands, and there’s been a change in his personal life (one that he’s sick of being written and questioned about, with good reason). Last night his post-Chelsea Light Moving band hit town and played a large chunk of their just-released record to a reasonably full house at The Sinclair. “It’s good to be back at The Sinclair Rock and Roll club,” joked the lanky mangler, who also quizzed the audience about what…

    Upon leaving the theater after seeing Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s latest, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), I decide that the common practice of denoting any principle performance in a film as “starring” should be rethought, as someone taking up a vast amount of screen time does not necessarily mean that they shine in their role. Perhaps bestowing the prized five-pointed descriptor should be reserved only for those who turn in a rather admirable performance, to be deemed worthy only after the work is complete, not while it’s being marketed. I think, let’s…

In the wake of a recent and embarrassing streak of athlete and ex-athlete arrests, we can be thankful that McCarty’s is far less serious than the majority of cases coming these days from high-profile names. Apparently his arrest stems from several checks bouncing that he paid out to a contractor who was installing…

Zdeno Chara, the team’s captain and anchor on the blue line,  suffered a knee injury and did not return to the game. He is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, maybe more. This is a huge blow to the team because in Chara they have their leader as well as the most important part of their defense. “You see your captain go down, and probably your most important player go down. It’s definitely not a great sight to see,” B’s winger Milan Lucic said after the game.

    Week 7 in the NFL was a rather lackluster week, as I recorded a 2-2 record last week. The Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints had no trouble covering, but that was not the same story for the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers, as they both flamed out. I look to have a better showing in Week 8 in the NFL. My overall record for the year is currently 14-11. Take the San Diego Chargers (+9) over the Denver Broncos. I am not one to usually give advice about the Thursday Night game, but this is a different situation. With first place on the line in the AFC West, the Chargers are getting…

    BOSTON (CBS) — It’s been an awfully long time since the Patriots have suited up for a game, thanks to last week’s Thursday game, but fortunately, it’s time for football again. The New England Patriots will host the Chicago Bears at Gillette Stadium at 1 p.m. in a game that means a lot for both teams. For the Bears, a win Sunday would go a long way in settling things down before their bye week. The Bears have lost three of their last four games and appear to be on the brink. A win Sunday, and they might be OK; a loss, and it’ll be two weeks of panic and…

    BOSTON (CBS) – The Bruins weren’t supposed to make the Stanley Cup playoffs let alone give the top-seeded Montreal Canadiens a legitimate fight in 2008 after center Patrice Bergeron was knocked out for the season with a concussion in October. Yet the Bruins ended a two-season playoff drought and then pushed the Canadiens to seven games. In 2013, defensemen Adam McQuaid, Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden all hit the trainer’s room in the midst of the first-round playoff series with Toronto. We all know how close that season was to ending with a Cup parade instead of bitter…
  • Keidel: Dallas Cowboys… America’s Team Or Just A Dream?

    By Jason Keidel » More Columns Forget how pretentious it is. Well, don’t. Because that’s part of the package that is the Dallas Cowboys. They are America’s Team, despite having an exactly .500 record the 17 years prior to this season, despite one playoff win since Troy Aikman retired, despite playing before partisan crowds — at home! — and despite the four score and seven years since they last hoisted a Lombardi Trophy. None of this would offend the senses if they weren’t so careless, perilous and pompous about it. Word was in the ’70s that the…
  • Patriots Injury Report: Shane Vereen Sick, Questionable vs. Bears

    Matthew Geagan
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:28 pm
    BOSTON (CBS) — Patriots running back Shane Vereen has never faced off against his younger brother, and an illness may keep him out from their first meeting Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. Vereen missed Friday’s practice with an illness, and is one of seven Patriots listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Chicago Bears. The game would be the first time he and his brother Brock, a safety on the Bears, have competed against each other on the football field. Also listed as questionable for Sunday are offensive linemen Bryan Stork and Dan Connolly. Stork has…

  • 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…

    Let me get this straight. You have Bogaerts at short. Holt playing pretty well at third. 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…

    All season long we’ve been hearing about how terrible the Thursday night football games have been. Teams have been ragged, worn down, and not sharp when playing just four days after their previous game. Last night the Patriots looked ragged, worn down and not sharp. The Jets hung tough all night long, running the ball at will against the Patriots, who were playing their first game without Jerod Mayo this season. For many of those following or covering the team, the Thursday factor is no excuse. It may be for other teams, but for the Patriots, last night was just another example of how…

  • Sharia student loans are flawed, but it's not just Muslims being let down by the government's tuition fees obsession

    Editor - Education News
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:47 pm
    The government’s addiction to its tuition fees policy has stopped thousands of would-be Muslim students going to university. Now its attempt to fix the problem by providing a sharia-compliant alternative is in danger of backfiring. That, at least, is the view of the experts. This debate remains far from resolved. But one thing is clear: when the government enters into the game of trying to find a loophole around religion, it is on very dodgy ground indeed. What ministers are now developing, following a consultation on the issue earlier this year, is a version of the Muslim…
  • Figures of government profit from student loans misleading

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:47 pm
    Despite the hysteria being propagated by some circles in Washington, D.C., the government is not making a profit from student loans, or at least not a profit that is substantial. It’s very popular to criticize the government, especially if you’re a politician. Political ads are increasingly framing legislators as people against Washington in an “Us Versus Them” narrative. It’s no surprise then that every issue facing America is framed in the same way. Student debt is one of those issues. Among college seniors across the country who graduated last year, the average amount of student…

    If there is one non-Tom Brady player the Patriots can't go without on Sunday, it's running back Shane Vereen. He wasn't seen at practice. The Patriots were without running back Shane Vereen on Friday's practice, the lone unexpected absentee (defensive end Chandler Jones was also not available). This isn't good. While it makes to remain calm until the injury report comes out this afternoon, any time a player misses a Friday practice does not bode well for their use in the game plan. Bill Belichick rarely plays those who have missed the last practice of the week. Unless Vereen has a personal…

  • Grid-Scale Energy Storage: Is the Price Finally Right?

    Martin LaMonica The high cost of batteries has made them impractical for storing energy from wind and solar or providing back-up power on the electricity grid. Now, though, several battery startups are claiming price reductions that make energy storage on the grid look more feasible. Fremont, CA-based Imergy Power Systems today said it’s developed a shipping container-size battery that will cost under $300 per kilowatt-hour, $200 less per kilowatt-hour than its last product. That price doesn’t mean that giant batteries will replace natural gas or coal power plants en masse, but it does…

    Disclosure: We were provided with a Toyota Sienna to test drive for 3 months as part of the #SiennaDiaries. While we received a stipend to participate in the experience, any opinions are our own. No one was happier to ride in the minivan for 3 months than our 4-year-old. The experience not only allowed us to share some fun family experiences, but it taught us a lot about Gavin. Boy did I completely underestimate the impact that a vehicle could have on a child.   First, enjoy our YouTube video that highlights Gavin’s Toyota Sienna Review.

  • Noodles and Company Restaurant Review and Dinner for 4 Gift Card Giveaway

    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! LEGO Duplo sets are recommended for kids ages 2-5, given that they include larger pieces with more simplified directions. 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…

  • Walsh to veto Council raises

    The Dorchester Reporter alerts us that the mayor will say nay to the raises the council voted itself a couple weeks ago. However, the $20,000 raise - which would also mean pension increases for councilors - got enough votes to show the council could override a mayoral veto. The raises would go into effect in 2016, which might be soon enough to save the councilors from poverty.

  • Advancements Made in Brain Injury Recovery

    14 Oct 2014 | 9:24 am
    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…
