Those individuals would have to stay at least 25 feet from the clinic’s entrances for up to eight hours. The 25-foot boundary would have to be clearly marked and the regulations posted in public.

    BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts lawmakers are hoping to spend as much as $40 million to upgrade the House and Senate chambers at the Statehouse. On Tuesday, House Speaker Robert DeLeo said he’s seeking up to $20 million for repairs to the 160-seat House chambers, including what he called wiring and flooring issues. DeLeo’s comments came after Senate leaders announced a similar $20 million renovation plan. Senate leaders said the money is needed to make critical repairs including fixing damaged cornices and pieces falling from the ceiling. Gov. Deval Patrick on Monday told reporters…

But in the wake of Governor Deval Patrick’s recent proposal to temporarily house up to 1,000 immigrant children at either of two Massachusetts military bases, one of which is out of use, the usual bigots have returned to air grievances.

Whether they’re picking up another’s song out of respect or boredom, the results have impressed us.

In the energy industry, though, the notion of technology platforms and partner ecosystems is more or less non-existent. That could change, though, as more technology entrepreneurs cross over into energy, said speakers at the MIT Platform Strategy Summit on Friday. “Examples of successful platforms in other areas have gotten people to wake up to the potential,” said Peter Evans, vice president of strategic analysis…

    Ben Fidler It’s an age-old problem with drug development: no matter how good a drug looks when tested in animals or petri dishes, there’s no guarantee it’ll have the same effect on a person. That unpredictability has delayed or doomed countless drug prospects—and drives up the cost, and time, it takes to make a successful therapeutic. A new startup called Emulate, spun out of Harvard University’s Wyss Institute, wants to improve the odds and recalibrate how preclinical testing is done—by using what it claims is the most comprehensive “organ on a chip” and software…

    According to a club source, the Boston Red Sox would consider a trade centered around sending Jon Lester to Los Angeles in exchange for Dodgers’ outfielder Matt Kemp. Outside of your fantasy baseball league, such a trade would seem unlikely, but given the two teams negotiating and the state of each franchise, the deal would actually be extremely fair. Don’t get me wrong, I hate this trade for both sides. Given the news that Lester will not agree to an extension with the team he is traded to, the Dodgers would be losing one of the best offensive talents in the game at a time when…

This could be your last training camp — you never know. So you have to make it count. You can’t take anything for granted in the NFL.” Perhaps Bill Belichick knows that, too, as Brady saw a…

St. Louis is already plagued with problems behind the plate, as they lost Yadier Molina earlier this month to surgery after a thumb injury. St. Louis was already splitting time between Tony Cruz and George Kottaras, which makes this move somewhat unorthodox as Pierzynski is older, was referred to as being a poor influence in the clubhouse by many in Boston and so far has experienced one of his worst seasons of his…

The C’s were involved in a three-way trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Brooklyn Nets, which landed Boston the services of Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller along with a future first-round draft pick.

Law spent the final five years of his career splitting time with the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos following a career in New England that saw him win three Super Bowls, anchor a record-breaking defense and pick off countless quarterbacks. But on Friday, Law will be back home in Foxboro and can finally say he hung them up as a member of the…

  • Dennard Removed From PUP List, Practices With Patriots

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:11 am
    BOSTON (CBS) — Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is off the PUP list and back on the practice field. Dennard, who underwent offseason shoulder surgery, was removed from the active/physically-unable-to-perform list on Tuesday and hit the practice field at Gillette Stadium for the first time during training camp. With Dennard back in the mix next to offseason additions Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, plus 2013 contributors Kyle Arrington and Logan Ryan, the Patriots have some strong depth at corner. Now, it will be interesting to see how the positional battle plays out throughout…
  • Chris Archer, Joe Maddon Continue To Complain About David Ortiz

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:01 am
    BOSTON (CBS) — On Sunday afternoon, in front of a whopping 25,000 people at Tropicana Field, David Ortiz hit a home run and then casually flipped his bat toward the Boston dugout. This was, apparently, the worst thing that has ever happened to the Tampa Bay Rays. That’s the only conclusion to be drawn based on the fact that on Monday, a full day removed from the heat of competition that can sometimes lead players to say silly things in locker rooms, Chris Archer did not back off on his initial comments. In fact, he took them a step further. “I never saw Hank Aaron flip his…

It has survived Lester's battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Farrell's two-year departure to manage the Toronto Blue Jays and soared during a pair of World Series triumphs.And now, it might be about to take another unexpected turn.

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.

We have no credit cards or debt other than student loans. Regarding the latter, I have about $50,000 in student loan debt. Most of the debt — $30,000 — involves Stafford loans in my name carrying a rate of 6.8 percent after graduation. The remaining $20,000 is tied to PLUS loans at 7.9 percent. While these are technically loans made to my mother, I make the payments. Unfortunately,…

    Richard Hill
    29 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    Last season we saw Tom Brady lose all of his toys- and the ones that came back were broken. This year there is no excuse. In 2013, the Patriots returned just three of their top eight receivers from 2012. Two of the returning players were injured (Rob Gronkowski and Shane Vereen). The third player was Julian Edelman. The Patriots offense ranked 25th in points scored through five games. Over the final 11 games of the season, the Patriots ranked 2nd. Alternatively, the defense went from ranking 3rd to 19th over those same splits. The common thread around the 2013 off-season was how this type of…

    More good news on the New England injury front as Alfonzo Dennard returns to practice in full. In yet another piece of injury-related good news, Alfonzo Dennard was on the practice field for the first time today after opening up camp on the PUP following his offseason shoulder surgery. Dennard's presence is especially important given the four game suspension that Brandon Browner will be serving to start the year; however, even without Browner, the Patriots have some very nice depth at the cornerback position. Dennard is likely slated to start opposite Darrelle Revis on the outside, with Kyle…

Prior to the New England Patriots' addition of Stanford rookie Tyler Gaffney off of waivers from the Panthers yesterday, the only high-upside running back the team had under contract past 2014 was fellow rookie James White. Gaffney's addition has shined the spotlight on the future of the position past 2014: James White: The 4th round draft choice out of Wisconsin is undersized at 5'8", but has impressed early in camp and has flashed potential as a three down back.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe has reported that Patriots rising sophomore receiver Aaron Dobson received a screw in his foot during his March 10th surgery to repare a fracture on the 5th metatarsal. This news is important because it sheds some light on the severity of the injury. Dobson was on pace for a top 25% season for a rookie receiver through an extremely consistent first half of the season (50 receptions and 700 yards is top 25% production), but he fractured his foot against the Denver Broncos…

It’s totally understandable as to why new head coach Bob Diaco waited until now to release it. He only had 15 practices to evaluate an entire college football team. So as the Huskies get ready for their first practice of 2014, there is still no confirmed starter at quarterback as Casey Cochran, Chandler Whitmer and Tim Boyle are listed as the No. 1 QB.

In the energy industry, though, the notion of technology platforms and partner ecosystems is more or less non-existent.

That unpredictability has delayed or doomed countless drug prospects—and drives up the cost, and time, it takes to make a successful therapeutic. A new startup called Emulate, spun out of Harvard University’s Wyss Institute, wants to improve the odds and recalibrate how preclinical testing is done—by using what it claims is the most comprehensive “organ on a chip” and software…

    Ah, what a weekend. From a new restaurant/lounge opening, to time with good friends, scenic walks, runs, cooking and baking, this weekend certainly did not disappoint. Here’s a peek into my weekend, plus a glimpse of what’s to come on The SavvyBostonian!         My weekend formerly kicked off on Thursday night with the grand opening party for Bastille Kitchen. Located at 49 Melcher Street in Fort Point Channel, Bastille Kitchen is just stunning. The interior is huge, with a modern yet rustic open floor plan. I just loved the chic upstairs and the cozy…

    With multiple pools, a lazy river, delicious restaurants and amenities galore, I am kicking myself for not staying a few more days at the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate. I first heard about the resort through a speaking opportunity at the Social Fresh East Conference, but I was so smitten that I know I’ll be back again. Until then, I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my stay! The Arrival I arrived at the Omni Orlando late on a Wednesday night – closer to midnight. Unfortunately, my flight had been delayed due to bad weather in Boston. Thankfully, the resort is about…

    20 Jul 2014 | 12:00 pm
    I often mention the Christian Science Plaza and get a, “Huh? Where?” type response from fellow Bostonians. Regardless of your interest in the Christian Science religion (the massive building is the church’s Global HQ, built in 1894 and expanded in 1906), the scenic plaza, surrounding reflecting pool and fountain in the summer make it a fun place for a stroll. The plaza is located in the Back Bay, adjacent to the Dalton Street and Huntington Ave entrance to the Prudential Center. It can also be accessed from Massachusetts (Mass) Ave. between Clearway Street and Huntington…

    While I’m no stranger to Fenway Park, I was recently offered an amazing opportunity to join KIND for FenwaYoga, a charitable event hosted on the field with the goal of raising $100,0o0 for the Red Sox Foundation. Let’s just say that opportunities like this don’t come around often, so naturally I jumped at the chance! With my good friend Biana of B-loved Boston by my side, we found ourselves at Fenway Park on a very warm day. Along with other fundraisers and event attendees, we were led out into the ballpark, where black KIND mats dotted the area around the field. Celebrity…

    Disclosure: This is a sponsored post discussing how CVS MinuteClinic promotes back-to-school health and wellness. While I am receiving compensation, any personal thoughts portrayed within this post are my own. Information provided by CVS MinuteClinic is clearly stated as such. As many of us have finally just settled into our summer routines, back-to-school ads and sales are being promoted in full-swing.

    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…

I attended an event in New York City at my own expense that featured Disney Planes Fire and Rescue toys. Have you ever needed to reinvent yourself? Did you recognize it alone or did you have a little help from your friends or an experience that was happening in your life? Did your new path become a necessity because of something that happened to you, which was outside of your comfort zone? Was it difficult to…

    A slip-and-fall accident occurs when someone slips, trips or falls because of the negligence of a property owner. Wet floors, damaged sidewalks, poor lighting and broken steps can all contribute to dangerous slip-and-fall accidents. A number of Boston slip-and-fall accidents have resulted in serious injuries such as sprains, strains, bone fractures, head injuries and debilitating back injuries. It is even possible to suffer a concussion or spinal cord injury in a violent slip-and-fall accident. Immediately after taking a spill on someone else’s property, you must take a moment to gather…

A new interactive map created by a number of local advocacy groups and researchers does just that. The new map can be found on Harvard.edu. It provides comprehensive data from local bike safety and collision reports. You can use it to see in-depth descriptions of every Boston bike accident that was reported to the authorities. By…
