    Gov. Charlie Baker’s first budget includes a proposal to double the state’s earned income tax credit for low-income working families. To pay for it, he wants to phase out the state’s controversial film tax credit. The tax incentive was enacted in 2006 to attract big-budget Hollywood productions to Massachusetts. We’ve since seen a parade of famous actors and film crews on location in the state, shooting movies like “Black Mass,” “The Town” and “American Hustle.” Tracking Gov.

    Gregory T. Huang First of all, it’s not really an anti-aging startup. That’s one takeaway after sitting down with the founders of Elysium Health last week. The newly launched company is headquartered in New York City, with a network of advisors worldwide. It’s out to sell nutritional supplements to consumers online to improve their personal health, not necessarily to forestall the aging process.

  • Looking Back: Grading the Celtics at the Trade Deadline

    Jerry DiStefano
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:30 pm
    The Boston Celtics have made an NBA high of 11 trades this season, which included two trades on the day of the NBA trade deadline. The trades involved sending Marcus Thornton and a future first round pick (2016 from the Cleveland Cavilers) to the Phoenix Suns, and in return the Celts received Isaiah Thomas. The other deal involved the C’s trading away Tayshaun Prince to the Detroit Pistons for Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome. The trade deadline was 12 days ago, but it appeared that Danny Ainge and the Celtics hit a home run. WHAT DEADLINE GRADE SHOULD THE C’S RECEIVE? Thomas was the big…

    Another trade has come and gone and the Bruins have stayed out of the spot light once again. I’ve covered this topic before, and in the past I’ve stood by Peter Chiarelli’s relative inaction at the deadlines because the Bruins already had such a good core that it wasn’t necessary to go out and make a big deal. However, this time around I just can’t support Chiarelli. The Bruins have some major needs on their roster and he didn’t do much to address them. All told he made 3 trades today of varying significance. While he was able to grab a couple nice pieces…

The two picks will be the Bruins natural selections in the 2015 and 216 drafts. Connolly, 22, was drafted sixth overall in the 2010 draft, just four selections after the Bruins picked Tyler Seguin. Connolly, who is 6’2” 181 pounds, will add size to the right wing position. He has 12 goals and three assists in 50 games this season. In his NHL career, he has 18 goals and 14 assists in 134 games.

Hightower sustained the injury during the 2014 season and played with it throughout the playoffs and Super Bowl. Hightower was coming off arguably his best season with the team in which both he and fellow linebacker Jamie Collins elevated their games when Jerod Mayo was lost for the season in October. Hightower became the “green dot” linebacker, which is the player on defense that wears a green dot on his helmet to signal that he is the one…

  • Report: Buffalo Bills Trade For LeSean McCoy

    3 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    BOSTON (CBS) – The Buffalo Bills have reportedly added a new weapon as they seek to dethrone the New England Patriots from atop the AFC East. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday night that the Bills, led by newly hired head coach Rex Ryan, are set to acquire star Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy. According to Schefter’s report, the Bills will send linebacker Kiko Alonso to Philadelphia in exchange for McCoy when they can officially make the move next week. McCoy, who is 26 years old, is coming off a season during which he rushed for 1,319 yards. In 2013 he ran for…

    With the change of the calendar from February to March, the beginning of the Major League Baseball season is coming, but also for another of our professional sports leagues: Major League Soccer. The MLS is gaining in popularity steadily over recent years, and could get a boost from the excitement of the World Cup last summer. The season gets underway on Friday, so let’s take a look at five things to watch heading into this year’s season. Will ratings improve?

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Red Sox needed an extra inning to get a win over the Northeastern Huskies on Tuesday, but two of their starting pitchers didn’t need much effort to get through their work for the day. Clay Buchholz got the start for Boston, and tossed a 1-2-3 first inning. He needed just 13 pitches to get his three outs, and struck out Northeastern’s Rob Fonseca to end the inning. “It was definitely good to get back out there. Only being the second time a lot of us have faced hitters, I felt good with everything,” Buchholz said after the 2-1 win.

"Jimmy is really kind of that leadoff guy."Rollins agrees.

  • Dale and Holley Sticking Around A Bit Longer

    27 Feb 2015 | 8:15 am
    A bit of positive news, in my opinion, from Chad Finn this morning, (Dale Arnold-Michael Holley reunion has worked for WEEI) as he reports that Michael Holley is about to sign a new deal with WEEI and that he and Dale Arnold will be remaining together in the afternoons on the station – along with Jerry Thornton. Holley has his flaws, but in my limited dealings with him, he’s always been one of the more thoughtful and self-aware guys out there. The show is a nice contrast to the daily bombast of negativity that is the Felger and Mazz show, and their ratings are reflecting that.

  • Yes, there are ways to cut that student loan bill

    Editor - Education News
    3 Mar 2015 | 8:02 pm
    How much did you pay for that college degree? Or are you still paying for it? More than 70 percent of students leave college with school debt, and the average loan balance is growing. The class of 2014 graduated with the most debt in history-an estimated $33,000 per student -and this year’s graduating class is on track to top that. If you’re one of the millions of college graduates facing big loan payments, it may feel like the end is nowhere in sight. On top of paying down a five-figure debt, you’re also being charged interest. (For the 2014-2015 school year, interest rates…
  • An Online Game That’ll Help Pay Off Your Student Debt

    Editor - Education News
    3 Mar 2015 | 8:02 pm
    What if you could reduce student debt by playing an online trivia game? The idea sounds absurd. But one California-based company, Givling, is trying to make it a reality. It’s a creative—and slightly bizarre—attempt to tackle the country’s student debt, a problem that has now surpassed $1.2 trillion. The setup is simple. People pay $0.50 to play a round of Givling’s web-based true-or-false trivia game, which spans topics ranging from current events to pop culture. Three wrong answers means you’re out, but if you’re good enough to keep going, you can potentially win some cash.

    Two dozen people marched on the Oregon State University campus Tuesday morning to protest the soaring cost of a college education and call for the wholesale forgiveness of student loans. The small group — mostly students, joined by a handful of faculty members — trooped across the lower campus and past the administration building to the Memorial Union quad, where a number of participating groups set up information tables to address the issue. They carried hand-lettered signs that read “Make College Free!!!” and “You Are Not Aloan” and chanted slogans such as “Hey hey, ho ho,…
  • Money Minute: What happens if you don't pay your student loan bill?

    Editor - Education News
    3 Mar 2015 | 8:02 pm
    New data shows that 11.3% of student loans were delinquent at the end of 2014 — double the rate just 10 years ago. Loans are considered delinquent when at least one payment is missed. I get it  if I had to choose between keeping a roof over my head or keeping student lenders happy, the roof would win every time. But ignoring your student loan bills can have serious long-term consequences. Your credit score will tank. Once your payment is 45-90 days late, it will go on your credit report. There’s no easy to way to predict how much your credit score will drop. But trust me, it won’t be…

    Rich Hill
    4 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    Second round of the Kevin Faulk division! 4. Air Wilfork So pretty much every single game against the Jets for the past eternity have come down to a blocked field goal. There has been one single game against the Jets over the past three seasons that was decided by more than a field goal. Please tell me that this won't be how Bills games are in the future. I won't be able to take it. Even if Bills games were close, we all knew that some act of the football gods would tilt the scale back in New England's favor. With the Jets? They'd be close and I'd feel sick at the idea of losing to Rex…

    Second round of the Kevin Faulk division! 3. Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel Vince Wilfork has two GIFs in this bracket quadrant still alive. Football is a game of bounces and luckily the Patriots have someone with the girth of Wilfork who offers the gravitational pull to draw some of the bounces in New England's direction. I also feel like Logan Ryan had a surprising number of plays go right through his hands this season- or I guess off his face. They were plays that I think he would have corralled as a rookie. I have to hope that he'll find his hands as he enters his third season with the…

    Second round of the Kevin Faulk division! 2. Gronk Does Gronk Things Can you believe that this was still a two score game with just under half of the fourth quarter to go? The Colts were still totally in this game against the Patriots. It didn't seem like it was "that" close. Not really that close, but, you know, close enough. But then Rob Gronkowski decided that it was time to throw the Colts out of the club. This was 3rd down, too, which means that this was a reasonably high stakes play that Gronk took all the way to the house. 7. Julian Edelman 69! Is this all we need to know about this…

  • Bills Acquire LeSean McCoy, Patriots Should Be Happy

    Rich Hill
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:27 pm
    New England's division rival made a splash acquisition and should be happy with the result. ESPN's Adam Schefter dropped a huge piece of news on Tuesday afternoon. The Buffalo Bills have traded away linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for running back LeSean McCoy. Initial reaction to the trade is a dropped jaw. Alonso was the defensive rookie of the year in 2013 but missed 2014 with an injury. McCoy is considered one of the best running backs in the league, earning All Pro status in 2011 and 2013. Both positions are generally fungible in the sense that a mid-round…

We’ve received a Nintendo WiiU, Nintendo 2DS, and the new Nintendo 3DS XL (pictured left), plus a variety of games and amiibo characters to review. Any opinions shared are our own and other than product, no other compensation is being received. Being a family that blogs, creates YouTube videos and photographs images for companies like Samsung, it’s pretty evident that my husband and I enjoyed adopting technology into our lives well before we said “I Do.” As parents, there is no way to shelter our son from our…

    I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network. No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own. This post may also contain affiliate links. The Little Mermaid was originally released on my 12th birthday. While as an ordinary pre-teen I may not have paid that much attention to animated movies, my little sister was born that year, right at the dawn of the new Disney princess era. We owned the movies on VHS, but my most predominant memories included listening to the soundtracks on cassette tapes in my mother’s wood…

    Richard Moskowitz, M. D.Because I keep getting frantic calls from parents about this, and even such usually sensible sources as NPR and National Geographic are calling out "anti-vaxxers" as irrational, deluded, or even anti-scientific, the worst insult of all, hitherto applied only to climate deniers and those other yahoos and neanderthals of the Republican persuasion, I feel compelled to throw my own two cents in, and to try to inject at least a modicum of common-sense and sanity into the mix, so I don't need to repeat the same things over and over, even though I have to admit that I've been…

  • Tipped Workers Fight Against Their Sub-Minimum Wage

    Tara García MathewsonBOSTON - Marco Angelone moved to Boston from Italy about seven years ago. In his country, it is not part of the culture to tip a waiter or waitress. The server’s wage covers his or her labor. In the United States, he has discovered, that is not true. Angelone, 27, lives in Jamaica Plain and has worked in the restaurant industry for a little over two years now. He is a back server, which means he splits tips with the waiters and waitresses working in the dining room. This year, his wage went up to $3 per hour, from the $2.63 it had been when he got his first job.

  • How Winter Weather Can Ruin Your Motorcycle

    Tom Kiley
    18 Feb 2015 | 11:30 am
    Whether you plan on riding or storing your motorcycle this winter, the cold weather can wreak havoc on the bike. It is possible to ride in temperatures below freezing, but you will have to take precautionary measures to ensure that you and your motorcycle are not damaged. Salt, sand, mud, and ice can rust and degrade the metal parts of your motorcycle. If you choose to ride during the winter, it is important that you park it over night in someplace dry. Take the time to wipe it down after a ride. Try to remove any salt or sand that you picked up on the roadway before leaving it over night.

  • Broken Bone Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

    Tom Kiley
    21 Jan 2015 | 8:19 am
    Riding a motorcycle is often exhilarating and cost-effective, but it can also be dangerous. Even poorly-rated cars surround passengers in a metal frame that absorbs some of the impact in the event of a crash. Motorcycles offer no such protection. Riders are exposed to the elements and are vulnerable to crushing bone injuries. If you are ever involved in a Boston motorcycle accident, it is likely that you will suffer at least one bone fracture. Motorcyclists can have their legs crushed upon impact with a car or the roadway. Ribs, elbows, hands, shoulders, and knees can crack and fracture if…
