    Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have renewed their request for a judge to hold a hearing on leaks to the news media. Last month, a judge issued a stern warning to prosecutors about former or current members of their team speaking to the media after Tsarnaev’s lawyers objected to interviews retired FBI agents gave around the anniversary of the deadly 2013 bombings. The request came after several news outlets this week reported that investigators believe a friend of Tsarnaev provided the gun authorities say was used by Tsarnaev and his brother in the fatal…

    25 Jul 2014 | 11:59 am
    A three-tiered system of parole eligibility for juvenile murderers in Massachusetts will be established under a law signed Friday by Gov. Deval Patrick. Lawmakers sent the bill to his desk in the wake of state and federal court rulings determining that sentencing juveniles to life without parole was unconstitutional. Under the legislation, juveniles convicted of first-degree felony murder become parole-eligible after serving 20 to 30 years and juveniles convicted of first-degree murder with premeditation become parole-eligible in 25 to 30 years. Juveniles convicted of first-degree murder with…

A federal jury on Thursday convicted former probation commissioner John O’Brien and two deputies of scheming to rig the agency’s hiring process to favor job applicants referred by powerful state lawmakers over more qualified candidates. Attorneys for all three are promising appeals. No legislators were charged in the case. But…

  • REVIEW + FOTOBOM: DEATHWISH FEST DAY TWO

    Photos by Dalton Patton First year festivals are usually a little rocky. The people responsible for these monsters take on the challenging task of booking a stacked line up out of nothing, promoting the event, and then getting enough people to show up to break even if they’re lucky. Unless you have the established and dedicated fan base that Deathwish Inc. has. The new and improved second inaugural ride of Deathwish Fest was far beyond a success. It sold out the Middle East Downstairs almost immediately. It’s about time Converge and Boston hardcore had their own festival. The second day…

A straw-pale, lemony wheat ale, it’s marked by a pronounced tart bite produced by the warm-fermented yeasts and Lactobacillus bacteria that come together in the brewing process. And today, American brewers keen on crafting tart, quenching ales are revamping the cheek-pincher by tossing in everything from kiwi to dark malt, thus turning this once-endangered style into one of the hottest trends in craft beer.

But alas, it’s brand spanking new music from Joyce Manor. “End of Summer” is neatly tucked…

    Kara Miller What products count as innovative? Often, the things we take most for granted. Like Legos. A toy that was started by a failing carpenter in the 1940s, suffered a near-death experience several years ago, and is now experiencing blockbuster growth. So, how did the company manage to stay afloat through a half-century of changing tastes and technologies? By sticking to its core and creating narratives, says David Robertson, a professor at Wharton and author of Brick by Brick: How LEGO Rewrote the Rules of Innovation and Conquered the Global Toy Industry.

  • Dave Eggers’s “The Circle” Fails as Satire, Succeeds as Prophecy

    Wade Roush
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:11 am
    Wade Roush When the anti-utopian book The Circle, the latest novel from McSweeney’s founder Dave Eggers, came out last October, reviewers hailed it as a “provocative” and “foreboding” warning about the spiritual costs of excessive sharing and transparency on the Internet. The Guardian even called it “a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication.” But for a satire or a fable to be effective, in the way that Gulliver’s Travels or 1984 were, its characters and situations must usually bear some resemblance to those we know. They can’t depart entirely…

As the current virus outbreak continues in West Africa, a small Durham, NC, biotechnology company is quietly working on a drug that, if all goes well, could become the first Food and Drug Administration-approved Ebola treatment.

    Chris Capuano thought he saw his last Major League baseball diamond in 2014, but he was wrong. The New York Yankees announced Thursday afternoon that they will be acquiring the left-hander from the AAA minor league Rockies affiliate, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, in exchange for cash. He pitched three games for the Sky Sox, earning only one win. The Yankees are looking to diversify their portfolio of pitching options.

    While addressing the media Wednesday morning, Bill Belichick announced that Rob Gronkowski will not begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list, and that he has been cleared to play. The announcement comes as a bit of a shock, as Gronkowski had surgery to repair his right ACL on January 9th. The Patriot’s tight end said last week that he plans to play the whole season. And while today is a step in that direction, staying healthy remains the ultimate obstacle. Gronkowski battled injuries during his time at the University of Arizona, and hasn’t been fully healthy…

  • 2014 Patriots Offensive Line Preview: Solder, Mankins, Stork, Cannon, Vollmer

    Matthew Geogan
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:55 am
    Compared to years past, 2013 was a rocky season for the Patriot’s offensive line. Tom Brady was sacked a near career-high 40 times last season. While part of that can be attributed to Brady’s lack of faith in some of his young receivers, but there’s no doubt that the offensive line must step up in 2014. The unit did pave the way for another potent ground-attack, and received heavy praise for its role in the emergence of LeGarrette Blount late in the season. Health could play a huge role in the unit’s improvement this season. Sebastian Vollmer’s campaign ended…

He knew more about boxing than almost anyone east of Max Kellerman. He spent so much time trying to become boxing’s ancient, jailhouse archetype, nurturing his inner thug at the expense of his other, obvious charms, that he never became the hero that he should be today. Forgive the cliche, but Mike Tyson is not a book to be judged solely by the cover. Not that Tyson needs sympathy. No one made him…

But a sore back won’t keep Ortiz out of the Boston lineup Friday night, and he’s ready to bat third against a pitcher who has taken aim at the Sox DH twice this season. Price and Ortiz have had some bad blood dating back to last October, and it boiled over in late June when the Rays came to Fenway. While the two had a good amount of…
  • Ravens, Owner Steve Bisciotti State Public Support For Ray Rice

    BOSTON (CBS) — On Thursday, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was issued a two-game suspension from the NFL for allegedly punching his then-fiancee in an elevator, rendering her unconscious. Disturbing video of Rice dragging the lifeless body of Janay Rice — then Janay Palmer — out of the elevator is readily available online, and it captures the seriousness of the charges. Criminally, Rice is mostly being let off the hook. He agreed to participate in a pretrial intervention program for at least one year, and if he completes it, the charges will be dropped.
  • No Change In Style: Gronkowski ‘Going To Keep Smashing And Dashing’

    BOSTON (CBS) — Rob Gronkowski may have sounded like his usual jovial self Friday after practice, but the Patriots tight end is the first to admit he’s not back to 100 percent. Gronk has been on the practice field with his teammates, but is not taking place in drills in the early days of training camp. He’s working individually when everyone else breaks off for 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills as he continues to rehab from the torn ACL and MCL that sidelined him for the final month of last season. But for Gronkowski, who has missed 14 games in the last two seasons, he’s just…

Still, he was a winner for the first time in 15 months.Anderson pitched effectively into the seventh inning before a blister ended his night and the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1."It's good. Your goal when you pitch is to win the ballgame and it's been a while," he said. "It's pretty satisfying, especially my first win in the National League. Hopefully I'll get on a roll here."

  • Kirk Minihane Suspended For One Week Over Andrews Comments

    25 Jul 2014 | 6:46 pm
    Entercom and WEEI suspended morning co-host Kirk Minihane for a week, but only after pressure from FOX, which informed Entercom that it was pulling all sports and entertainment advertising off of the company’s airwaves. That includes ALL stations, not just WEEI. FOX talent will also not be appearing on any WEEI program. It was only after that move that Entercom suspended Minihane.

    Make no mistake. John Dennis, Gerry Callahan and Kirk Minihane are absolutely loving every bit of attention they are getting from Minihane’s Erin Andrews comments. Their bosses are as well. Either that, or management is afraid to take action against their highest-rated show. They keep adding on to it so that they can keep themselves in the news, and bring attention to themselves. They also get to play the persecuted victims role here, as everyone who dares to criticize them has an agenda. Fine. I get it. They all DO have an agenda. That doesn’t automatically invalidate what…

He vowed not to change his style. He also offered this further thought on Andrews. I used a word to reference Erin Andrews that I shouldn’t have used to reference Erin Andrews. I will completely cop to that, I said it, I admit it. [...] I think she stinks at her job. I don’t think she’s very smart. I think Fox only hired her…

First we have Shaughnessy, who rails about how Red Sox fans have all gone soft on the team and we’re not miserable bastards like we were in 1978. At this hour, your Boston Red Sox enjoy a friendlier environment than almost any of the 30 teams in baseball. The Sox have a chance to finish in last place for the second time in three years, win a playoff game in only one of six seasons, and still be perceived by…

It seems that all that radio hosts want to talk about it whether he will be here beyond this season, but has it really hit Patriots fans that Darrelle Revis will be playing for the Patriots this season? Darrelle Revis. Kirk Minihane is not being punished for his remarks about Erin Andrews earlier this week.  Nothing has come of the comments of Lou Merloni and Tim Benz on Andrews, which some would say are even worse.

Private loans could possibly differ substantially in regards to terms, interest rates, and taxes.

  • Grading Tom Brady: Strengths and Weaknesses

    Richard Hill
    25 Jul 2014 | 9:30 am
    Tom Brady is under the microscope- what can we learn about him from last season's performance? ESPN and Pro Football Focus combined to start the off-season storyline of Tom Brady's decline. Their primary focus was on how he adjusted and handled pressure and how his ability to handle pressure has disappeared over the past few seasons. Pro Football Focus now, on their own, has been running through their numbers and have self-published some facts regarding Brady's 2013 season- and there's plenty of positives to take away. Some highlights: Brady was best in the league on second down and…

    The expectation is that Devin McCourty will be the starting safety for the Patriots- but who starts with him? The Patriots are entering the 2014 season with the expectation that Devin McCourty will be the starting free safety. The main question is which player will be starting next to him. The anticipated frontrunner is Duron Harmon, a second year player out of Rutgers who played admirably in over a third of the defensive snaps last season. Harmon is rangy and is a smart player; his upside might be limited, but he's a more-than-solid contributor who won't hurt the defense. However, don't give…

    There are 74 games left in the baseball season and the Red Sox look pretty [expletive deleted]. If you only pay attention to the number of games back the Red Sox are in the division and wild card races, which is what the optimists among us focus on, then the situation doesn’t look so [expletive deleted] horrible. In both races, the Red Sox are 9 games back. But let’s introduce our depressing pal reality to the discussion. A team isn’t going to make the playoffs unless they have 88 [expletive deleted] wins. The Red Sox won’t sneak in with 82 wins, nor 83, nor [expletive deleted] 84.

  • Dave Eggers’s “The Circle” Fails as Satire, Succeeds as Prophecy

    Wade Roush
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:11 am
    Wade Roush When the anti-utopian book The Circle, the latest novel from McSweeney’s founder Dave Eggers, came out last October, reviewers hailed it as a “provocative” and “foreboding” warning about the spiritual costs of excessive sharing and transparency on the Internet. The Guardian even called it “a deft modern synthesis of Swiftian wit with Orwellian prognostication.” But for a satire or a fable to be effective, in the way that Gulliver’s Travels or 1984 were, its characters and situations must usually bear some resemblance to those we know.

  • I wanted to let you know that your blog has been a great source of comfort to me, though I've only popped in from time to time in the last few years. I was also socially ostracized in college (on a much smaller scale) when I was unhappy. Since then, I've felt that I'll never regain the confidence that I'd need to pursue my ambition of becoming an academic, a belief that my ideas could matter. Your passion and courage are so inspiring. They make me think I could be stronger, too.

    I’m always excited when new restaurants open in Boston that bring a little something special to the table. Such is the case with Liquid Art House, which opens today at 100 Arlington Street in the Back Bay.

When you walk into Liquid Art House, you’re immediately welcomed with a gorgeous round bar space with high ceilings, a dramatic Murano glass chandelier and walls adorned with modern art. The vibe is…

    With Mother Nature finally granting Boston some spring-like weather, it was a fantastic weekend to be out and about. Add in Bruins and Red Sox games, plus Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger and the city was positively bustling. From great runs and walks, to seeing friends and an out of town adventure, here’s how I spent my weekend. I kicked off the weekend on Friday afternoon with a fantastic run along the Charles River. And, by fantastic, let’s just say that despite a lot of out-of-shape huffing and puffing and teary eyes due to the wind and sun glare, I finished my two mile…

    Disclosure: I attended an event at Kings Bowling Alley Back Bay in Boston. I was hosted and received complimentary food, drinks, and bowling. I couldn’t believe it, we have never taken Gavin bowling. I figured we’d have at least been invited to a birthday party by now. He’ll be 4 1/2 and for some reason it just hasn’t happened…yet. Here in Northern Massachusetts for some reason we have candlepin bowling. Those small little bowling balls that fit in the palm of your hand and literally knock down 2 pins at a time. However, in Connecticut where I went to college…

    Sue KatzTHURSDAY JULY 3 The drive from Boston to NYC is endless and difficult – and I’m just the passenger! It may take fewer hours than other trips I’ve been known to take, but it’s more daunting what with the bridges and construction detours. Our only real gridlock is in Brooklyn. For amusement, I stare at the license of the car in front of us: KICK AXE.
