Hamburg will be happy: Feuer und Flamme!!

It's kind of sad, really, the Big Dig utterly destroyed Boston's optimism and ability to take on big projects, probably for decades to come.

Meanwhile, with support sky high Hamburg released its final plans for the Olympics yesterday. The difference between Boston and Hamburg in terms of civic pride and a' can-do' attitude is dramatic. It more »

I'm a Bostonian currently working in Hamburg, and I can tell you that this opposition is an almost invisible fringe group, the Boston Globe had to really search far and wide to find it. There is broad more »

There's more to this than meets the eye (pun intended): these "yoga pants" (a euphemism if there ever was one) are now the rage among women in industrialized countries around the world. When you have more »

Through a systematic de-emphasizing of coal as an energy source, and and equally systematic development of green energies over the past three decades, Germany is now generating enough renewable energy more »

Only in the US can you claim to have a square that is a "magical place" and a center of social life with several large thoroughfares running through the middle of it. Europeans, who long ago learned t more »

It's a cultural thing, it has nothing to do with "safety" or "hygiene" or anything else. I just returned from Germany where dogs are fully integrated into public life--restaurants, department stores, more »

The Handshake Tour of 2013 is certainly better than the Carhartt Pickup Truck Tour of 2010...

I just returned from a business trip to Stockholm and, wow, what a difference intelligent urban planning makes. The combination of controlling automobile traffic, a well-developed public transportatio more »

"I work in Boston and am on the streets for 16 hours at a time and the amount of near accidents I see on a daily basis is staggering." I believe Boston's bike initiative is intended to address precise more »

This author mistakenly conflates external factors in our assessing beauty (symmetry, sharp features, natural hair and complexion, size, etc), and the beauty that radiates from inside us. I know many p more »

"The more Southern Baptists we can bring to Boston the better -- perhaps we can evangelize them into tolerance and a belief in equality for all, regardless of gender, race or culture!" This would be n more »

Rockport voted almost 90% for Obama, it's a pretty enlightened community...

"WE have to cut some stuff-this can be cut with little profound impact." I can say without hesitation that my own Fulbright experience resulted in far more value to the United States than the billions more »

The example people you highlight in this article--Larry and Timothy--are not really environmentalists at all, but rather represent another long-entrenched American tradition--the Don't Tread on Me, No more »

Nicely put, ScratchCook, spoken like a true gentleman! I'm not sure about the digital camera in Rockport, though. A paint brush and easel is still my preferred method there...

I just recently experienced ratings manipulation online: I attempted to post a review on both Amazon and the Bose Websites on my experiences with the new Bose QC 20i noise-cancelling headphones. I fou more »

Using one's backyard as a trash dump continued well into the 1960s in many parts of Eastern Massachusetts. I know--I excavated a hole for some backyard landscaping a few years ago and ran into a simil more »

The comments here are not worth going into, they reflect much more on the commenters than on Governor Patrick's time in office. For a time the bostonglobe.com Website kept the riff raff away because o more »

It would have been cheaper just doing an amazon search on 'iphone photography'; there are a ton of good books on the subject. That being said, the camera quality of the iPhone 5 is much, much better t more »

While New England is politically liberal, it is historically painfully conservative when it comes to culture. As someone who grew up in LA, I sometimes find it humorously embarrassing--think Monty Pyt more »

In spite of the Republican rhetoric about wanting less government, the fact of the matter is Republicans are far more willing to intrude into the lives of Americans with laws than Democrats are. Repub more »

I predict a quick demise of this restaurant once the novelty wears off: it's over-priced by about a third. A simple spätzle dinner for $21? A German restauranteur would laugh all the way to the bank i more »
