first_imgShareTweet Thieves targeted the Whiterocks RNL hut and stole vital life saving equipmentTHIEVES have stooped to a new low in what they will steal.The RNLI Lifeguard Hut at Whiterocks has been vandalised and life-saving equipment stolen.This equipment is used to save people who get into danger in the waters all year round, not just in the summer.What is even more galling is that hut and stolen equipment were all bought with RNLI funds.And their own money will now have to be used to mend the damage and replace the stolen equipment, money that should be spent on saving lives.The RNLI said in a statement to the Mark Patterson show: “Although it’s winter, our Lifeguard units are still forming part of the beautiful scenery on our coastlines, it’s such a shame not all people come to the coast to enjoy it.”So if you who was responsible, ring the police on the 101 number or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.VITAL LIFEGUARD EQUIPMENT STOLEN FROM WHITEROCKS RNLI STATION was last modified: November 15th, 2016 by John2John2 Tags: MARK PATTERSON SHOWRNLIVITAL LIFEGUARD EQUIPMENT STOLEN FROM WHITEROCKS RNLI STATIONlast_img read more

first_imgShareTweet David Caldwell died after a lunchbox he picked exploded. A former soldier claims his Real IRA killers had been under surveillance in the days leading up to the attackTHE PSNI is to investigate claims made in a book about the murder of a former UDR soldier in Derry by the Real IRA.David Caldwell died after picking up a lunchbox packed with explosives at a Territorial Army base in the city in 2002.A former solider claimed in a recent book called Charlie One that the bombers were under surveillance in the days leading up to the attack by an undercover British Army unit. That claim will now be reviewed by the PSNI’s Legacy Investigation Branch (LIB).Detectives from the LIB are said to be currently investigating more than 1,000 cases.Mr Caldwell was involved in refurbishing activities at Caw army camp when he was critically injured in the Real IRA blast.The 51-year-old father of four later died at Altnagelvin Hospital. Tthe PSNI have written to the DUP MP Gregory Campbell to confirm that a review will take place.“The book’s content is undoubtedly alarming for Mr Caldwell’s family,” the police said.“PSNI Legacy Investigation Branch is currently considering whether other material exists which together with the book may create an investigative line of enquiry.“Unfortunately we cannot give you a timescale for the work at this stage, as it needs to be sequenced with more than 1,000 cases that are currently within the remit of the LIB,” the police added.The PSNI also pointed out that since the original investigation into Mr Caldwell’s murder, his case had been reviewed by officers from the Serious Crime Review Team but that “no further opportunities were found to exist at that time”.In October, members of David Caldwell’s family met First Minister Arlene Foster and the Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt to discuss questions raised by the book.Mavis McFaul, his former partner, said that the family wanted answers.“It is pretty hurtful that some man knows details about Davy’s death and couldn’t come forward before this,” she said.“There’s evidence the police have (more detail) and they’re not releasing it until we get another inquest into the murder.”POLICE TO INVESTIGATE BOOK CLAIMS OVER RIRA MURDER OF DAVID CALDWELL was last modified: December 12th, 2016 by John2John2 Tags: CHARLIE ONEDerryLEGACY INVESTIGATION BRANCHPOLICE TO INVESTIGATE BOOK CLAIMS OVER RIRA MURDER OF DAVID CALDWELLPSNIlast_img read more

My career since I started in UV has been great. This is just the next step and I’m looking forward to it,” he added. Slaughter actually got his basketball career in the country started with the Green Lancers, who he led to three championships in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi).He nabbed a Most Valuable Player award in that league 2009 before transferring to UAAP powerhouse, Ateneo. He added two more titles to his resumé with the Blue Eagles, winning it all in 2011 and 2012. Along the way, he learned how to take care of his body and his conditioning and now appears to be a lean, mean, low-post machine.“I think the most improved thing is the shape I’m in. I’ve really learned that I need to take care if my body so it can be at its most functional for games,” quipped Slaughter. As for his rivalry with another big man from Cebu, June Mar Fajardo, whom he battled with during their Cesafi days, Slaughter lauded the 6-foot-10 giant from Pinamungajan and expressed his excitement in renewing their rivalry, this time in the pro league.“He’s really dominating now and that will raise the level of competitiveness in the PBA. I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”Read Next LOOK: MMDA conducts 2nd round of clearing ops in Pasig, Pateros SMC bags Bulacan airport project This, Slaughter believes, is a need that he can fill.MORE STORIESnewsinfo4.0 quake shakes Davao Oriental townnewsinfoLOOK: MMDA conducts 2nd round of clearing ops in Pasig, PaterosnewsinfoDemocrats fight over health care, immigration at debateMORE STORIESnewsinfo4.0 quake shakes Davao Oriental townnewsinfoLOOK: MMDA conducts 2nd round of clearing ops in Pasig, PaterosnewsinfoDemocrats fight over health care, immigration at debateTHE BEST TEAM“I couldn’t ask for anything more than to play for Ginebra.

The man who dethroned Fedor Emelianenko pulled off yet another upset on Saturday night, outclassing Travis Browne to secure a lopsided unanimous decision win as a two-to-one underdog in UFC on FOX 11’s main event.While Werdum was assumed to be the better grappler of the two, it was actually the striking game that carried the Brazilian to victory. Werdum asserted his jab from the opening bell, then proceeded to dismantle Browne in a big way, battering the Hawaiian with an array of heavy punches and kicks to earn himself a date with destiny against UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez later this year in Mexico.Of course, Werdum will be counted out there too (a sentiment a few of our pros already took the liberty of starting below). But that, as they say, is why they play the games — because as we learned on June 26, 2010, anything can happen in this weird, wonderful sport of ours. @TeamKhabib impressive win buddy.

Also nearby in the South End is The Beehive, offering a more modern option for cocktails and cabaret shows in French-bohemian environs.

(And really, Dashboard Confessional offered some pretty solid couplets, okay?) Amorous aesthetes can always opt for a museum crawl or night at the theater, but we’ve found a few other fun date ideas that are full of art and heart.Where to EatDine at Liquid Art House for #instafood photos fit to frame. Chef Johnny Sheehan turns out prettily plated haute cuisine—think: uni butter-drizzled scallops with risotto and Buddha’s hand—in a restaurant-cum-art gallery where the well-heeled can purchase pieces from rotating exhibitions right off the walls. Even the bar’s chandelier of hand-blown purple Venetian glass is for sale…for $18,000. For a side of sonic art with trussed-up Southern cuisine, dig into (tea-brined) chicken and (duck fat and jalapeño) waffles at B3 (“Back Bay Beats”), where genre-jumping bands offer up folk, Latin, funk, and more every night through a programming partnership with Berklee College of Music. And if your date seems more like a logical left-brain yin to your creative right-brain yang, find synergy at ArtScience Culture Lab & Café, a Kendall Square-side restaurant founded by Harvard biomedical engineer David Edwards. After dining on its precisely calibrated plates, sensory-driven drinks, and especially excellent, esoteric desserts bearing bits of molecular gastronomy, check out Le Laboratoire, Edwards’ connected “interdisciplinary culture lab” that hosts everything from creative art-and-sound installations to panel discussions with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma.

Print By Scott Kearnan· Where to PlaySuggesting a docent-led museum tour will probably portray you in your dullest light. Instead, take advantage of local museums’ special programming series that bring more fresh, exuberant energy to established institutions: We’re thinking of the Institute of Contemporary Art’s DJ-soundtracked First Fridays, thematic cocktail parties to accompany the art peeping; the grand, immersive Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s “Rise” lineup of diverse young pop, rock, and hip-hop musicians; or summer concerts and movies at the Museum of Fine Arts. But to show off a more subversive side (and test your date’s appreciation for irreverence), bring them to the ironic Museum of Bad Art, a volunteer-curated gallery of amusingly awful paintings displayed in the basement of Davis Square’s Somerville Theatre—if stupid cat portraiture can’t break the ice, nothing will. In fact, even if you’re staying highbrow, finding less-predictable alternatives to widely known arts orgs will highlight arty street cred. Classy BSO concerts are great, but Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s free Hatch Shell shows (among others) are a casual, picnic-friendly substitute. The Boston Ballet is irreplaceable, but Cambridge’s Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre offers intimate cabaret-style seating and cocktail service inside a Gothic church. And though nothing beats live theater, ArtsEmerson’s unique “Stage to Screen” series brings professionally filmed performances of notable international works.

Tis the Season to Tune Into Holiday Baking Championship

first_imgChefs ‘Tis the Season to Tune Into Holiday Baking Championship Spoiler alert: Local pastry instructor Douglas Phillips has made it to the final four. 3250325 12/4/2018, 10:37 a.m. Devoted foodies and restaurant newbies love The Feed. Sign-up now for our twice weekly newsletter. Mass. local Douglas Phillips is competing on the Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship this season. / Courtesy of Food NetworkUPDATE, Tuesday, Dec. 11, 10 a.m.: Massachusetts local Douglas Phillips is officially a top-three Holiday Baking Championship finalist after Monday night’s episode. Catch the finale at 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 17, on Food Network.PREVIOUSLY:The pumpkin-pecan crumble muffins cooling on my countertop are proof that Holiday Baking Championship is inspiring me. I’ve been watching this season—the Food Network show’s fifth—for local pastry instructor Douglas Phillips, and like my coworkers who got those muffins this morning, I’ve been rewarded. Phillips—formerly of Woods Hill Table, and currently a baking instructor at North Shore Community College—made it to the final four contestants in last night’s episode.He almost didn’t, though. As my muffins cooled in their tin, I watched judges Duff Goldman, Nancy Fuller, and Lorraine Pascale criticize Phillips’s tiramisu. In the Hanukkah-themed fifth episode, the competing chefs blindly picked two mismatched flavors for their layered desserts, then also had to incorporate maple syrup somewhere in the dish.Phillips had talked to the cameras about his distaste for the green tea (“matcha tastes like dirt to me”), but his problems proved more elemental. His tiramisu wasn’t high enough, the green madeleines he made instead of the dish’s traditional ladyfingers were too dense, and the vanilla-maple pastry cream he chose to make “panna cotta-style” was gummy and didn’t make sense to the judges (nor to this tiramisu lover watching at home).When Phillips ended up among the bottom two bakers last night, I actually thought he was headed home for the holidays. It was an ice-cold change of pace, because so far this season, Phillips has been the one to beat. After producing a stunning ginger molasses-cookie yule log in the first episode, and a “divine” glazed chocolate-cherry cake in the second, the pastry instructor was squarely in the sights of baker Lerome Campbell. “My biggest competition here is Douglas,” the Naples, Florida, Ritz-Carlton pastry chef said to the cameras during the third episode (which, for the record, Campbell went on to win). Campbell also remains in the top four—and the judges loved his coffee-ginger tiramisu.Last night, Phillips lost sight of what makes tiramisu tiramisu—the light, fluffy textures of spongey cookies and mascarpone cream. But he still impressed with a command of flavors (even ones he thought were weird together), and an artistic decorating hand. The remaining four baking championship contenders are all likable, and talented—but Phillips has the pastry skills to bring the title home to Massachusetts.Holiday Baking Championship is a sweet way to start the week, and if the lighthearted, luster-dusted competition inspires you, your coworkers might agree.The show airs at 9 p.m. on Mondays, and there are two episodes left this season.

Harvards Dunster House Says Goodbye to Goat Roast

No, not the exclusive finals clubs or the legacy admissions. It’s a goat roast.That’s right, goat roast. Dunster House, one of 12 undergraduate residential houses at Harvard, has been skinning and roasting a real goat in its courtyard since the 1980s. But not this year, according to the Crimson.Cheryl K. Chen and Sean D. Kelly, the house’s faculty deans, sent an email to residents Friday announcing the end to the primal tradition. They cited health concerns raised by an environmental health inspector and students feeling uncomfortable at the event.“Cheryl and I have decided that the goat roast this year will not include the traditional ritual of slaughtering, transporting, and, in the main Dunster Courtyard, skinning the carcass of a goat with paleolithic tools,” Kelly wrote in the email.Faculty Deans @ Harvard’s Dunster House decide to do away w/tradition of skinning/barbecuing an already slaughtered goat in the courtyard, during their annual goat roast. They cite some students discomfort & health concerns. Listen for my report coming up in the 1 pm news on WBZ pic.twitter.com/ySTAM5SUPF— Kim Tunnicliffe (@KimWBZ) April 16, 2019Daniel Lieberman, then a resident of the house and now a biology professor at the college, started the tradition in 1986. It was apparently a spinoff of a class he taught about primitive survival skills.To their credit, Dunster residents aren’t completely hands-off during the roast. Every year, according to the Crimson, students and house staff smear the carcass with salt, pepper, lime, curry, herbs and garlic then leave it to marinate overnight before it takes its place of honor on a spit over an open flame.One resident, Iris R. Feldman, told the Crimson that the discomfort caused by the event was good for students.“If you are comfortable eating meat in the dhall, but you aren’t comfortable with the goat roast—those are the same thing,” Feldman said.Kelly says they’re looking for new ways to continue the tradition, albeit with much less goat roasting in years to come. The deans suggested a petting zoo or a White House Correspondents’ Dinner-esque figurative roast as more fun, less neanderthal-ish replacements.

Ask a pro.Plan for a sun-soaked patio shower at Bella Luna & the Milky Way Lounge in Jamaica Plain. / Photo via Facebook / Bella LunaQuestion:Where is a nice place to have a low-key summertime baby shower? Not too expensive, kids will probably attend, and ideally would be a patio.—L.W.As summer sets in and many folks get out of town on the weekends, now is an ideal time to plan a party at a Boston-area restaurant. Considering your parameters, here are a few ideas that come to mind in Boston, south of downtown, and north of the river.Consider the colorful, coastally inspired Citrus & Salt for a family-friendly fiesta, though it doesn’t have a very large patio. But it is bright and airy inside, with white-washed finishes and pastel florals and tiles in the main room, as well as a separate, private area your party could rent for up to 40 guests. The spread could include house-fried chips and guacamole; warm agave-glazed blue corn biscuits and cinnamon butter; grilled chicken tacos with pineapple pico; and more summer- and kid-friendly fare. The guest of honor might enjoy a creative mocktail or two, with options like a blueberry-vanilla agua fresca. (142 Berkley St., Boston, 833-324-8787, citrusandsaltboston.com)Set on sitting outside? Citrus & Salt’s sister restaurant Buttermilk & Bourbon has a great patio lounge that can host up to 40 guests for a New Orleans-inspired party—complete with soft-serve mimosas and fresh-fried beignets, of course. (160 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, 617-266-1122, buttermilkbourbon.com)Head off the beaten path to the Stony Brook area of Jamaica Plain to host a pizza party—with plenty of parking. Bella Luna & the Milky Way Lounge is a vibrant venue with several private options for groups of 30-130, including a large and lovely patio (pictured). The crowd-pleasing menu ranges from snacks like “figs in a blanket,” and braised short rib nachos; entrees like grilled salmon, and spring ricotta gnocchi; to loaded salads and pizzas. Buffets are an option here, for as little as $20 per person (plus the cost of the space rental) for an appetizer, salad, and pizza spread. (84 Amory St., Jamaica Plain, 617-524-6060, milkywayjp.com)Gather in Cambridge to celebrate on the rooftop of the Sinclair. The music venue and two-level restaurant offers several places to party, including the 52-seat outdoor deck, and private spaces inside for groups of 30-150. Brunch-friendly fare like chicken and waffles, mini doughnuts, and fresh salads drizzled in avocado green goddess dressing could comprise your daytime shower menu, with pitchers of Sinclair Sangria and iced tea flowing for guests. (52 Church St., Harvard Square, Cambridge, 617-547-5200, sinclaircambridge.com)All of these suggested restaurants employ people on staff to customize your party plans and menu to fit your budget and vision. Best of luck with the event—and with the arrival of the little bundle of joy!last_img read more
