  • Fire Marshal: Ammonia Contamination Of Propane Tanks Is Rare

    The Associated Press
    18 Apr 2015 | 2:17 pm
    State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan says it’s important to check propane grills for leaks as summer approaches, but there’s no sign of a widespread problem after recent reports of tampering. Coan investigated after Cape Cod fire departments got calls this month about suspicious blue color on brass propane tank valves. The discoloration was feared to ammonia contamination and an explosion risk. He said Friday only one 20-pound gas cylinder among more than 50 tested had been filled with ammonia, which could weaken the tank. Methamphetamine makers have put ammonia in empty propane tanks,…

    Activists are urging state lawmakers to increase spending on the fight against AIDS with a goal of bringing the number of new infections each year to zero. AIDS Action Committee Executive Director Carl Sciortino said that while Massachusetts has made great strides in battling the disease, the number of new infections has leveled off at about 700 each year. Sciortino – a former Democratic state lawmaker from Medford – said new breakthroughs in treatment and prevention of HIV means the state can potentially break through that plateau in HIV diagnoses and get to zero new infections.

    Yesterday’s approval of the world’s first-ever generic multiple sclerosis drug, developed by Momenta Pharmaceuticals, positions the company and its partner, Sandoz, for a potentially risky decision on when to launch the drug in coming months. That’s because Momenta (Nasdaq: MNTA) and Sandoz, the generic division of Novartis (NYSE: NVS) that will market the drug, have been in court battles for years with the maker of Copaxone, Israel-based Teva Pharmaceuticals. Those battles — in which Momenta…

    Kara Miller Transforming big businesses into green businesses might seem like a thorny process. But older, established companies like Ford have the potential to ignite a new generation of environmentally friendly products, according to Andrew Winston, author of The Big Pivot. By shifting their manufacturing process—like substituting aluminum for steel, as Ford has done—such companies are able to quietly lighten their carbon footprint. Tech giants, meanwhile, can be surprisingly rough on the environment. Consider this: the “cloud” consumes more energy than the nation of…

    With the playoffs underway, get ready for some great games. The Celtics barged their way in despite not being finished rebuilding. The Spurs dropped several seeds with a final day loss. Some very potent teams are getting ready to face off, so we’re here to give you our annual predictions on how things will turn out. Our panel is largely in agreement as to who will advance, with one non-unanimous series winner per conference. It was a little trickier to decide which series would be struggles and which would be breezes, with only one unanimous choice there. As usual, picking the winner of…

    One inning.That’s all it took for the New York Yankees to pile on seven runs, for the Boston Red Sox to throw away a potential sweep, and Clay Buchholz to undo the narrative of an overachieving and underestimated Red Sox starting rotation after one turn through. This came one turn after shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies for seven shutout innings, so it begs the question: Will the real Clay Buchholz please stand up? And when he does, which one can we expect later today and moving forward this season – the potential “ace” or the version that saw his ERA balloon…

    The NBA season is over, and it was a heck of a season. Much was decided on the final day, including both #8 seeds. Seeding itself was a big ado on that day, as San Antonio’s loss pushed them back all the way to #6 instead of being #2. As usual, the East was far weaker than the West, though there was still seed jockeying to be done there as well. Stellar and unexpected seasons from the Hawks and Warriors helped shake up our standings, minimizing the points to be won from picking division winners. For the most part, it made it harder to get the ever valuable points from guessing seeds…

    Whenever a team enters a season as a favorite to be a Stanley Cup Contender and misses the playoffs, serious questions need to be asked. The Bruins, fresh of a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2013 and a President’s Trophy in 2014 looked primed to make some serious noise in 2015. Despite losing Jarome Iginla and Johnny Boychuk prior to the season to the Avalanche and Islanders, respectively, the Bruins still looked to be a contender. Expectations took a hit when the Bruins began the season 1-4 while playing a poor brand of hockey. They began to right the ship but then the injury bug hit,…

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Celtics are back in the postseason, set to begin their first-round playoff matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday afternoon. A first-round meeting with the Cavaliers doesn’t bode well for the Celtics, but the organization is happy that they’re back in the playoffs after just a one-year absence. “I would say we’re not the least bit conflicted about it,” Celtics president Rich Gotham told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s The Adam Jones Show on Friday night. “It’s exciting and what we all worked for.

The lawsuit, filed over a 2013 oil spill in a Mayflower subdivision, was dismissed last month by the judge. It had been filed on behalf of landowners whose property was physically crossed by the pipeline.

  • Interior Offensive Line Options

    freeland1787
    18 Apr 2015 | 3:04 pm
    The Patriots have two established IOL starters in Bryan Stork and Ryan Wendell. Stork is a mainstay at center, but I do think Wendell could be upgraded from with the right guy. Both players were critical in stabilizing the offensive line last season. The Patriots could consider OTs Marcus Cannon or Cameron Fleming for the right guard position, but neither player has stepped up when put in the spot. There is also Josh Kline, a serviceable backup who gets a bad label because he gets destroyed by the games' best defensive tackles. So now what do the Patriots do to address the position? They can…
  • Football Outsiders: Tom Brady Ranks 3rd in Adjusted Interception Rate

    Rich Hill
    18 Apr 2015 | 9:00 am
    Football Outsiders took to the tape to see which quarterbacks received the most luck from defenses dropping interceptable passes. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw nine interceptions over the course of the 2014 season. It marked the third straight season his interception rate (interceptions per pass attempt) was under 2.0%, which is a very strong mark. Brady's nine interceptions on 582 attempts yields a 1.5% interception rate, which puts Brady in a three-way tie for 4th place. Aaron Rodgers led the league with a 1.0% interception rate, which is just silly, but also makes sense…

  • Sportfolio Management: Offensive Beta and Julian Edelman's Consistency

    Rich Hill
    17 Apr 2015 | 11:00 am
    As Tom Brady goes, so goes the offense- except for Julian Edelman. He's impervious to offensive swings. It is obviously impossible to separate the receiver from the quarterback when it comes to offensive production. Either party could have a bad day and influence the output. A quarterback could drop the ball in the receiver's hands and deserve most of the credit, or the receiver could force a would-be-tackler to miss and rack up yards after the catch. We go into this exercise knowing that this is for fun, but also to show how certain players and positions within the Patriots offense are able…

But older, established companies like Ford have the potential to ignite a new generation of environmentally friendly products, according to Andrew Winston, author of The Big Pivot. By shifting their manufacturing process—like substituting aluminum for steel, as Ford has done—such companies are able to quietly lighten their carbon footprint. Tech giants, meanwhile, can be surprisingly rough on the environment. Consider this: the “cloud” consumes more energy than the nation of…

    If you have a child or are sensitive yourself, you know that scratchy clothing can be a big sensory issue for children. You know — the tags that people are adamant about removing, the way kids or adults rub clothing textures through their fingertips in stores before purchasing looking for something that “feels just right.” Or, the way a child can put on an article of clothing that “looks” like it will feel good, then rip it off seconds later asking for their favorite article of soft, comfy clothing? Whether this sensory issue is a standalone issue or part of a…

The worst part? This crime scene was preventable.
