By the time they made it to land, the injured young man was in severe shock and had no radial pulse. Bystanders on the beach strapped him to a makeshift stretcher and then whisked him away. It was too late. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. A pall descended over Massachusetts. The next day the beaches were deserted, and up and down the coast people shook their heads and predicted that nothing would ever be the same. They were right — to a point. That incident took place 83 years ago, in Buzzards Bay. Claiming the life of a 16-year-old Dorchester kid by the name of Joseph Troy, the attack became a touchstone for coastal New England. In the decades since, in those rare instances when someone spotted a shark — or, rarer still, when someone was attacked by one — public officials dipped into history to use the death as psychological comfort for panicked beachgoers. Their reassuring refrain went like this: Don’t be alarmed. We haven’t had a fatal … [Read more...] about Sharks on the Cape: Just how scared should we be?
Hooke court weddings
By Gayle Fee | PUBLISHED: November 21, 2007 at 12:00 am | UPDATED: November 17, 2018 at 12:00 am Bill Nye aka “The Science Guy” is seeking a restraining order against his ex-fiancee Blair Tindall, a writer and former symphony oboist known in Boston music circles for her fling with married Boston Pops maestro Keith Lockhart. Tindall, who confessed about l’affair Keith in “Mozart in the Jungle,” her 2005 tell-all about the classical music biz, admits that she conducted a late-night raid on Nye’s flower beds with weed killer on Labor Day. Blair went ballistic on the backyard blooms at Nye’s $1 million Studio City, Calif., home because she was bitter and angry about their ugly break-up, according to court papers. “Such an action went far outside my character; and it was not aimed at people, but plants,” she wrote in court papers that can be found under “War of the Roses” on The Smoking Gun’s Web site. “For … [Read more...] about Bad chemistry for ex-Lockhart lover

It’s free, it’s educational, and it’s democratic – what’s not to like?

Saudi Arabia quietly held a second court hearing for 11 people facing charges over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an independent U.N. human rights expert said, criticizing the kingdom for its lack of transparency in the proceedings over the grisly slaying. Agnes Callamard, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, said she learned of the hearing during her first visit to Turkey last week to investigate the murder. Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who wrote critically about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed and dismembered inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last October. His remains have not been found.The brutal killing -- described by Turkish and U.S. officials as an elaborate plot -- has drawn an international outcry about press freedom and Saudi government tactics to quell criticism.Turkey, which is carrying out its own investigation into Khashoggi's murder, has been frustrated by what Ankara says is a lack … [Read more...] about Saudi Arabia accused of undermining Jamal Khashoggi murder probe, holding secret trial

The mum-of-three today spoke out to the Sun Online in a desperate attempt to stop others from taking the drug - a substance ten times stronger than heroin and cut with GASOLINE.
