900 Boston Marathon runners receive
medical treatment along route

Boston Globe [MA], by Andy Rosen, Travis Andersen*

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 4/16/2018 4:54:23 PM

WELLESLEY — It began as a little neighborhood gathering at Carter Memorial United Methodist Church, whose new spiritual center is right along the Boston Marathon route. But as dangerously cold runners started to arrive in huge numbers at the medical tent just past the race’s halfway point, members of the church threw the doors open to create a makeshift recovery site. The food, drinks, coffee, and roaring fire in the building’s front room took on a more serious purpose as more than 50 injured competitors streamed in, many suffering from symptoms of hypothermia.

During the race it was high 30´s to low 40´s, sleet and rain. Winds out of the east (headwinds) in the 20´s gusting to the 30´s. Normal temps this time of year are overnight lows in the mid 30´s and highs in the high 50´s. Where is global warming when you need it?

I´ve heard that the cold winter weather has extended well into April in Boston and the north-east region in general. Breathing in all that very cold air while running cannot be good for you. The body normally warms air as you inspire it into your lungs but not in these large volumes.

One of the meaner Spring weather days I´ve ever been through. Really cold and windy it wasn´t running weather and many tried but bailed, and many sought medical attention because of the cold rain and wind.

The comments above are something....you all must live in perfect states that are strictly Republican! Runners are amazing athletes and although maybe not your cup of tea, they came from all around the world as they always do to run in this Marathon...

Be kind, less judgmental, not all are as perfect as you!

High 30s to low 40s is not too cold for distance running, I did it routinely in shorts and t-shirt, including running in snow in Montreal. Sleet and rain, however will suck the heat out of you and numb your skin within minutes. Most of those runners probably did not dress in more than the usual shorts and tank top to avoid the extra weight. In addition many runners in this race are from warm climates and would not have anticipated those conditions or didn´t care.

I was in the Boston area yesterday at the end of an 11 day business trip which took me to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and eastern Massachusetts. It snowed 4 times during my travels.

I flew home yesterday but the weather delayed both of my flights. I finally arrived home 5 hours after I was supposed to and at 2am. I can’t imagine running in that weather.

Good Lord, there´s a bunch of fuddy-duddys here.

Entry fee for the Boston Marathon is $180 which covers a whole bunch of services including medical services.

Its a race. Sometimes the weather is nice, sometimes the weather is not. This race is on a lot of people´s bucket list and they train extensively for it. If you qualify, most likely you´re going to do it no matter what the weather.

Sanctuary status sticks to state
Boston Herald, by Howie Carr    Original Article
Posted By: John c- 7/20/2018 7:32:16     Post Reply
So Massachusetts is not officially a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants — wink wink, nudge nudge. The reality, of course, is that we are a sanctuary for foreign freeloaders, not just from the law, but from work. In Massachusetts, illegal immigrants aren’t treated the same as taxpaying citizens, they’re treated better. Which is why I always say, if I ever get in a jam, I ask for no special treatment. Just treat me like an illegal immigrant. Five years ago, the state admitted (under great duress) to spending $1.8 billion annually on welfare for illegal immigrants. What do you figure

U.N. Warns Of ‘Precarious Gaza

The United Nations has warned of a dramatic deterioration in the humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip after Israel temporarily banned the entry of gas and fuel through the Kerem Shalom crossing until Sunday. Israel will continue to allow vital food and medicine to pass through the coastal enclave’s main commercial crossing on a case-by-case basis. Those restrictions, along with last week ban on commercial goods, are compounded by Egypt’s closure this week of its Rafah crossing into Gaza. Israel also halved Gaza fishermen’s zone to three nautical miles. The result? Gaza’s 2,000,000 people have been cut off and left

WASHINGTON – Liberal political strategists hope to block President Donald Trump´s next Supreme Court nominee by replaying a strategy they used to help defeat the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act last year. The multimillion-dollar plan of advertising and grass-roots activism will focus heavily on convincing two Republican defenders of the ACA, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, to buck the president again by denying his first choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Trump plans to reveal his selection Monday.

MONTREAL — The Montreal International Jazz Festival has cancelled the remaining presentations of a show that has been criticized because it features a white woman singing songs composed by black slaves. The festival said Wednesday it was apologizing to anyone who was hurt by the decision to put on the shows.

A bill directing the Registry of Motor Vehicles to let people choose “X” for a gender instead of male or female passed the Senate nearly unanimously and could bring the change to state-issued IDs as soon as November. The option — already available in Oregon, California, Maine and Washington, D.C. — addresses concerns by people who don’t identify as solely male or female and consider themselves non-binary, meaning neither one nor the other gender. (Snip) Scott Lively, who’s running against Baker in the Republican gubernatorial primary, said the bill was an example of officials “capitulating” to the left. “Government officials

Researchers may have found a tiny culprit — human herpes virus — in the progressive loss of memory, thinking ability and identity that comes with Alzheimer’s disease. And it could be a big deal. In research that revives a suspicion first raised more than six decades ago, scientists have found higher levels of the common virus in the brains of people who had both behavioral symptoms and neurological evidence of Alzheimer’s at the time of their death than in the brains of deceased donors who had no signs of dementia. The researchers’ suspicions fell upon two strains of herpes virus — herpesvirus

As the Massachusetts High Technology Council took a victory lap celebrating the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision to block a ballot question on the so-called millionaire tax, a state lawmaker promised to revive the popular proposal to boost spending on education and transportation next year. State Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester) said in a statement he will revive the millionaire tax — in identical fashion to the ballot initiative — when lawmakers return in January 2019. “Income inequality is at unacceptable levels in Massachusetts and, at the same time, our transportation infrastructure is woefully inadequate and our schools are struggling to provide

Sanctuary cities are hailing a federal judge’s ruling yesterday that the Trump administration cannot cut off grants to Philadelphia based on the way the city deals with illegal immigrants, while opponents called the decision a defeat for public safety. U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson said the conditions the federal government placed on the City of Brotherly Love in order to receive the funding are unconstitutional, “arbitrary and capricious.” “Today’s victory for Philadelphia is a moral victory for sanctuary cities across the country,” Somerville Mayor Joseph A.

Clergy members and other activists are calling on Boston officials to rename Faneuil Hall because a portion of the money used to fund the so-called “Cradle of Liberty” came, ironically, from the profits of its namesake’s slave trade. At a press conference yesterday outside the Boston landmark named for Peter Faneuil, an 18th-century merchant who also was involved in the exchange of human cargo, according to the National Park Service, seminarian Kevin C.

Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn?

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest
