  • Extremely Rare Shipwreck Unearthed Beneath Boston Streets

    A construction crew in Boston stumbled upon an "incredibly rare" find beneath the city's street: a 19th-century shipwreck. "Nothing like this has been found in Boston, in filled-in ground, before," City of Boston archeologist Joe Bagley said. "This is incredibly rare and incredibly amazing." The ship is a wooden sloop that's at least 50 feet long, according to CBS News, dating to the mid-to-late 1800s. It was discovered last week about 25 feet below grade during construction on a new office building. But Bagley, according to the Boston Globe, said the ship could be even older.

    Unlike the butchery that bookended it, it merited no presidential statements, no saturation television coverage. But what took place at 6101 Prentice Street on Aug. 21 may say more about the nature of gun violence in the United States than any of those far more famous rampages. It is a snapshot of a different sort of mass violence ó one that erupts with such anesthetic regularity that it is rendered almost invisible, except to the mostly black victims, survivors and attackers (...) ďClearly, if itís black-on-black, we donít get the same attention because most people donít identify with that.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker hasnít said whether he would sign the measure, which would expand a 2011 state law banning discrimination against transgender people in the workplace and housing by also prohibiting discrimination in...

    Revere thoroughly deserves his place in American history, but another courageous American has been ill-served by those who write books about the Revolutionary War. Revere was 40 at the time of his journey, but she was a girl of 16. Born at Patterson, Putnam County, N.Y., on April 5, 1761, she was the eldest of 12 children born to Henry and Abigail Ludington. On the stormy night of April 26, 1777, she is said to have been putting her younger siblings to bed when the family had a visitor. Close to exhaustion, a messenger had come to tell her father...

The conveniently timed ďTax Simplification Act of 2016Ē would direct the IRS to develop a free, online tax preparation and filing service, using tax information the IRS already has, which Americans could choose to use to have their taxes filed directly with the government, instead of using a third-party service, such as TurboTax.

    In the early days of the Revolutionary War, the British held a tight grip on the city of Boston. On April 19, 1775, colonial forces attempted to confront the British in Lexington and Concord. Although the British prevailed, this was the beginning of the siege of Boston.General Artemas Ward was given control over the various groups of militia by Brigadier General William Heath on April 20. Ward found it difficult to fully control the different militias but managed to position them in a siege line that ran from Roxbury to Chelsea which blocked in Boston and Charlestown.Wardís forces were bolstered...

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump may be the front-runners to win the nomination for their respective parties in the 2016 presidential race, but ESPN Major League Baseball analyst Curt Schilling is not impressed. The former Red Sox pitcher made a lengthy appearance on Kansas Cityís 610 sports radio Tuesday afternoon, and after talking baseball for the first 20 minutes, the conversation shifted to politics, and Schilling did not hold back. He took particular exception to Clintonís use of a private computer server to send classified information. ďIf sheís allowed to get to the general election before sheís in prison, Iíll...

    Federal investigators have raided the Canton law office of state Senator Brian Joyce, a former assistant majority leader who has been under fire for alleged ethical lapses such as receiving free dry-cleaning from a local businessman and charging his campaign fund for a family party. ‚ÄúThe FBI and the IRS are conducting court-authorized activity in connection with an ongoing investigation,‚ÄĚ said Kristen Setera, an FBI spokeswoman. Massachusetts Republicans immediately called on Joyce to resign in light of the FBI raid. ‚ÄúJoyce‚Äôs remarkable disregard for the law is a byproduct of the Democratic culture of corruption on Beacon Hill, where abuse...

    Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner who's polling ahead of all his opponents here in New Hampshire, told Breitbart News on Friday morning that America is in dire straits if voters don't elect someone president who can get the nation's immigration crisis under control. "If somebody great doesn't get in as president, we don't have a country anymore," Trump responded when asked by Breitbart News for his thoughts on recent congressional testimony by border patrol agents that the nation's immigration laws are basically nullified. "We're not going to have a country anymore." The testimony, as reported by the Washington...

    New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities. The Globe urges them to support John Kasich, whose record as governor of Ohio shows him to be a pragmatic, fiscally responsible executive, but one who is also concerned with helping the poor. His success in that important swing state, and his record as a moderate conservative who is willing to compromise in pursuit of results, suggests he...
