    Hard-working staff at UMass are being refused tiny raises that are written into contracts because the state, supported by Caret, is not honoring the contracts. The same political hacks who cater to th more »

    I could be wrong but I'm almost certain that Teresa Hanafin is a PAID employee of boston.com. She is listed as "Director of User Engagement and Social Media." This is not a volunteer position.  She do more »

    It's been nearly a year since the February 2011 RAW contest. This was the first RAW contest I entered and I enjoyed it a lot.  I worked on the project with my 12 year old son (who's almost 14 now). He more »

    Another poorly-written hyperbolic story about health. This story contains two of the most common errors in this type of medical reporting. 1. Concluding from statements like "no studies exist to prove more »

    This is unfortunate. The reason I shop at Stop & Shop and not Big Y is the self-serve checkout, coupled with handheld scanners. I can scan products as I buy them, toss them in my cart or bag and check more »

    Also, after hearing the officials today, including former presidents from both parties, endlessly further the illogical myth that the passengers purposely crashed the plane, I think the idea that 93 w more »

    Biggest myth now being solidified in history is that the passengers purposely crashed the plane to avoid it hitting Washington, D.C. It's a nice romantic idea, but goes against logic. They weren't try more »

    In the gallery of silver-haired celebrities John Stewart does not distinguished, he looks ill. Is he a smoker? His odd skin color and dark under eye circles give him the look of someone with lung canc more »

    A lot of things seem fishy here. A strip mall surgery "spa" run by a doctor not board certified in surgery with god knows what kind of staff and facilities. And now the MetroDaily News is reporting th more »

    This is a deeply flawed study that by its own admission draws conclusions based on “observed associations [that] do not necessarily mean causation.” There is no sound scientific study that shows t more »

    Seriously? She's 28 and a poster child for aging. What is wrong with this picture? more »

    The Forbes ratings are obviously deeply flawed. In addition to applying a four-year graduation standard, it depends on student comments from RateMyProfessors which is about as scientific as the web si more »

    A few facts might be enlightening. 1) Mass state law requires all college students at all schools, public and private, to have health insurance. They can provide their own or they can buy the insuranc more »

    This should be a lesson to people to take Watches and Warnings seriously. There were Tornado Watches posted for Western Mass. beginning around 1 p.m. and the first Warning, I believe, at about 3 p.m. more »

    Wake up! Holub has almost no support on the UMass Amherst campus. Those coming to his defense are either 1) Anti-UMass on principle 2) Believing Holub's defense without knowing the facts or 3) Basing more »

    MassMaroon's post from 5/22 at 11:43 AM EDT is exactly accurate. This is the most accurate description of what is happening at UMASS and with the current Chancellor that has yet to appear. The people more »

    Robert Holub was doomed from the start. He was brought in as the anti-John Lombardi, his wildly popular and successful predecessor who was axed when he didn't cow-tow to Jack Wilson. Where Lombardi wa more »
