abcde Tu e s d a y, Ja n u a r y 2 , 2 0 1 8 At hospitals, Alzheimer?s care lacking Drive underway in Mass. to address shortcomings By Felice J. Freyer GLOBE STAFF Steve Johanson had a fierce and knowledgeable advocate at his side when he visited a hospital recently: his wife, Judy. In the six years since Steve had been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer?s disease, she had immersed herself in understanding the illness and preparing for its consequences. But even so, the hospital stay to adjust Steve?s Alzheimer?s medication was a nightmare. In the emergency room, nurses briskly took his vital signs, oblivious to his confusion. When he became upset, the staff didn?t seem to understand why. ?I felt like we were aliens that had just landed in a place that had no idea of the language we spoke and no concept of the disease my husband had,? Judy Johanson said. By the end of his four-week stay, Johanson said, her husband had lost the ability to walk and could not return to their Watertown home. People with Alzheimer?s and other forms of dementia frequently need hospital care, yet few hospitals are prepared for them.

About 1,700 homeless people have filled shelters ? several hundred more than usual, city officials said, straining resources and sending advocates, police, and other emergency personnel on searches to bring more people inside. ?It has never been this bad,? said Karen LaFrazia, president of St. Francis House, the day shelter where she has worked for 20 years. ?It?s just so frozen. I see people coming in with their hands bloated, skin purple. . . . You can sort of see people hunkered into themselves.? With Tuesday projected to hit a high of 18 degrees, the city is poised to record its second-longest stretch of consecutive days ? six in a row ? with temperatures below 20, said Hayden Frank, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

For decades, the lawmakers have refused. These days, updating the state?s 1968 wiretapping law is supported by every district attorney, and also by the Republican governor, the Democratic attorney general, and the progressive chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court. Standing in their way: the Massachusetts Legislature, which this fall killed a measure to make it easier for prosecutors to wiretap suspected criminals. ?When I speak to legislators one-on-one, the conversations are good and promising,? said Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley. ?But for some reason, year after year after year, this ends up rotting on the vine.?

INAUGURATION, Page A10 Tax cuts bump up paychecks but can?t help like raises would By Evan Horowitz GLOBE STAFF It?s more than a new year, it?s a whole new regime for employers and workers, who have to make sense of the major tax changes Congress passed in December. Starting in February, most workQUICK ers will see a much-appreciated STUDY bump in their paychecks as a result of these tax cuts. But over time those benefits will shrink, and after eight years they?ll disappear, when key provisions expire. And that helps drive home a key point: Tax cuts are a poor substitute for raises. L e t ?s i m a g i n e o u r selves as a typical breadwinner in Massachusetts, with a salar y of about $80,000. Under the old tax system, we could expect to keep about $55,000, after accounting for local, state, and federal taxes. Under the new law, though, our take-home pay jumps to $56,000, an increase of about 1.8 percent, according to calculations from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. That?s not nothing ? who would turn down an extra $1,000? ? but it?s probably not life-altering, either. Especially when you consider this won?t be the only change in our paychecks. Lots of us will also see our health insurance premiums go up. In recent years, employee premiums have been steadily rising all over the country, enough to cut our take-home pay by roughly $200, which would wipe out a chunk of the expected tax benefit. Then there?s the question of whether we get a raise this year. When the economy is growing and the labor market is tight ? as ours has been for years now ? average wages should be increasing around 3.5 percent per year. Unfortunately, typical workers haven?t been seeing these gains. Instead, wages have been growing between 2 and 2.5 percent per year. That means such workers as us ? typical breadwinners in Massachusetts ? are getting raises worth $1,300 instead of $2,000, after taxes. Taken at face value, that missing $700 seems to be more than compensated for by the $1,000 tax break. But there?s a big difference here: Wage growth compounds. Raises happen every year, so we wouldn?t just get that extra $700 When the economy is growing and the labor market is tight . . . wages should be increasing around 3.5% per year. vance its nuclear weapons program.

Walsh also promised to expand education and job training programs and offered a bevy of social services aimed at helping Boston?s most vulnerable populations and boosting its middle class. ?We can be the city that is world class because it works for the middle class,? Walsh said to thunderous applause before hundreds of supporters who gathered for his swearing-in ceremony at the Cutler Majestic Theater on a frigid New Year?s Day morning. Several of his proposals sparked questions from city councilors, specifically his plans to rebuild the Long Island bridge at a cost of up to $100 million. The mayor ordered an emergency evacuation of the island and the closure of the aging bridge in EPA/SHUTTERSTOCK CALIFORNIANS QUEUE UP With legal sales of recreational marijuana off to a strong start, proponents believe the Golden State will become the world?s largest market.

State expected to rack up most sales in nation By Thomas Fuller NEW YORK TIMES OAKLAND, Calif. ? Retail cannabis shops in California opened their doors Monday for the first time, inaugurating what proponents say will become the world?s largest market for legalized recreational marijuana. A transaction that remains illegal in many parts of the country seemed almost banal Monday for the customers at a dispensary in Oakland who picked out their marijuana, showed their driver?s licenses, a n d w a l ke d i n t o t h e b r i s k morning air with their drugs in a paper bag. ?This is a whole new world opening up,? said Diana Gladden, 48, who bought marijuana for herself and her aging parents. ?My mother, a very strict Southern Baptist, now thinks it?s OK because it?s legal.? One customer left with more than $1,000 worth of cannabis in a large grocery bag. Medical marijuana has been legal in California for more than two decades but the arrival of full legalization in the state is a milestone for the nation?s fast-growing cannabis industry. Marijuana is now sold legally down the entire length of the West Coast, plus Alaska. So far, 29 states have adopted medical marijuana laws. In 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana. Since then, five more states have passed such laws, including Massachusetts, where retail sales are scheduled to begin in July. A slow and halting rollout of California?s new cannabis regulations limited the number of shops offering the drug Monday to just a handful of cities across JOHN G. MABANGLO/EUROPEAN PRESSPHOTO AGENCY A clerk showed marijuana plants to customers at the Harborside cannabis dispensary in Oakland on New Year?s Day. the state, including Berkeley, Oakland, San Jose, and San Diego. But more municipalities, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, are expected to issue licenses soon. Alex Traverso, a spokesman for California?s Bureau of Cannabis Control, said around 100 dispensaries in the state were licensed to sell recreational cannabis Monday. Shayna Schonauer, the manager of a cannabis dispensary in Sacramento, said sales were good on the first day, though not as big as for marijuana holidays like April 20. Schonauer, the regional manager of the RCP Sacramento dispensary, told the Associated Press that Monday?s crowds met her expectations. Outside the dispensary in Oakland nearly 200 people waited in line before dawn for the 6 a.m. start of sales. ?Happy New Year!? Steve DeAngelo, executive director of t h e d i s p e n s a r y, s h o u t e d through a bullhorn. ? We?ve been looking forward to this day for a long time.? But in a state where marijuana has been widely available for so long, the enthusiasm was relatively muted. Outside a dispensary in neighboring Berkeley only a handful of customers waited in line before sales began. Legalization here may further raise tensions between the state and federal drug enforce- ment officials led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a vocal opponent of legalization. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration considers marijuana a Schedule 1 drug, the same category as heroin. National opinion polls have shown a gradual and steady approval of legalization. Californians voted for recreational use of the drug by 57-to-43 percent in a November 2016 ballot initiative. The law prohibits smoking in public, although such bans are already commonplace in California cities. Unlike the other states that have legalized, California has a vast industry producing the drug, much of which is illegally sold across state lines. By one estimate, California produces seven times more marijuana than it consumes. Legalization here will test whether that vast black market of growers, many of whom have been reluctant to join the legal market, will come out of the shadows. It is unclear how much legalization will increase consumption of the drug in California. Since 1996 marijuana has been available from medical dispensaries for adults with an easily obtainable recommendation card. And even those without medical cards have had little fear of prosecution. It has been many years since police officers in California made arrests for possession of small amounts of marijuana, according to Jennifer Tejada, chairwoman of the law and legislative committee of the California Police Chiefs Association. Jonathan Duenas, a college student and one of the cannabis customers in Oakland on Monday, said he had come for the novelty but probably would not return. ?I have a friend who grows it,? he said. ?I can get it much cheaper.? Even as more cities in California prepare to issue cannabis licenses, a number of questions remain about the effects and implementation of the new laws. The head of the Bureau of Cannabis Control has raised concerns that there may not be enough licensed cannabis distributors in the early days of retail sales. A similarly bumpy rollout took place in Nevada in July when Governor Brian Sandoval took emergency measures to combat a shortage of legal marijuana soon after legal sales began. Opponents of legalization warn that California could see an increase in traffic deaths, as appears to have happened in Colorado since stores in that state began selling recreational cannabis four years ago. Traffic deaths in Colorado involving drivers who tested positive for marijuana more than doubled from 2013 to 2016, according to a study published by a federal government agency in October. The report also noted a 35 percent increase in emergency room visits related to marijuana. California has not yet adopted a standard measure for marijuana impairment, an issue highlighted on Christmas Eve when a California Highway Patrol officer was killed after a man whom police said was driving under the influence of both alcohol and marijuana rammed into the back of the officer?s vehicle. Daily Briefing Chicago homicides down slightly Volunteers search for cats missing from Calif. wildfire SANTA ROSA, Calif. ? When a firestorm swept down the hillsides of Sonoma County, bringing terror to this tight grid of thousands of homes, dogs tended to rush to their masters. But cats went in the opposite direction, ignoring the pleas of panicked owners and disappearing amid the chaotic evacuation. Finding the missing cats that fled the October wildfires has been an impassioned quest for Jennifer Petruska, an animal lover whose home, pets included, was one of the few in her neighborhood to be spared. Petruska has spent nearly every night since the fires tracking and trapping fire cats, as she calls them, the felines that for weeks have remained missing because of stubbornness, trauma, instinct, or a mix of all three. Catching cats can be tricky DAVID MCNEW/GETTY IMAGES Santa Rosa, Calif., is ground zero for efforts to find cats that went missing in October. in the best of circumstances, but Petruska and her team of volunteers have caught more than 70. They believe many dozens more are out there. Pet Rescue & Reunification, as the volunteers call themselves, have set up night-vision cameras in storm drains and creek beds, where many cats went into hiding. Every evening at dusk they set traps baited with tuna and mackerel, checking them hourly until dawn. ?If you want to catch a cat you have to stay up all night ? that?s just the name of the game,? Petruska said as she prepared for another dark and cold round of cat stalking. ?I?ve been a horrible insomniac my whole life so it suits me.?

ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO ? Chicago ended 2017 with fewer homicides than in the year before, but gang violence in the city?s most dangerous neighborhoods kept the number of killings above the 600 mark. The Chicago Police Department released statistics Monday that show the number of homicides fell from 771 in 2016 to 650 last year. The number of shootings dropped from 3,550 to 2,785 during the same period. Although the drops were significant, the homicide total in a repeat of 2016 eclipsed the number of killings in New York City and Los Angeles combined. ??You still have to start with the fact that 600 people dead in Chicago is a hell of a lot of people to be dead in one year,?? said the Rev. Marshall Hatch, whose church is in one of the city?s most violent neighborhoods. Still, the drops have police and others optimistic that some of their efforts will lead to more declines over the next year. Chief among those efforts will be the expansion of hightech strategies and equipment to fight crime. ??I am proud of the progress our officers made in reducing gun violence all across the city in 2017,?? Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said. ??In 2018, we are going to work to build on the progress we made last year ? to reduce gun violence to save lives and to find justice for victims.?? ASSOCIATED PRESS N.J. teen charged with killing family LONG BRANCH, N.J. ? A 16-year-old New Jersey boy armed with a semiautomatic rifle shot and killed his parents, sister, and a family friend inside the home where they lived, authorities said Monday. Monmouth County prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni said the teen will be charged with four counts of murder and a weapons offense stemming from the shooting,which occurred less than 20 minutes before midnight on New Year?s Eve in the shore town of Long Branch. A possible motive for the shooting has not been disclosed. The rifle used in the shooting was legally registered to a resident of the house, Gramiccioni said. The victims were identified as the boy?s parents, Steven Kologi, 44, and Linda Kologi, 42; his 18-year-old sister, Brittany; and 70-year-old Mary Schultz, who lived with the family. Police responded to a 911 call of shots fired at the home just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Gramiccioni said. He described the shooting as an isolated domestic incident and said the teen was taken into custody without issue. The teen?s grandfather and brother were not targeted and left the home unharmed. ??It?s a terribly tragic incident,?? Gramiccioni said. Charges were expected to be filed later Monday, he said.

An estimated 1,400 cars were destroyed in a huge fire that raged through a multistory parking garage in the northern English city of Liverpool. The fire next to Liverpool?s Echo Arena also threatened horses that were stabled in the garage for performances at the Liverpool International Horse Show. The horses were moved to safety inside the arena. The show was canceled because of the fire, which was brought under control early Monday morning. The charred wrecks of ruined vehicles were visible in all seven stories of the parking garage. There were no reported injuries in the blaze. Officials set up an emergency shelter to In tweet, Trump slams Pakistan ISLAMABAD ? President Trump slammed Pakistan for ?lies and deceit?? in a New Year?s Day tweet that said Islamabad had played US leaders for fools. ?No more,? Trump added. Trump said Washington had given Pakistan $33 billion in the last 15 years, yet Afghanistan and the United States have long accused Pakistan of providing safe havens for militants. Pakistan had no official comment, but Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif tweeted that his government was preparing a response that ?will let the world know the truth.? Pakistan?s Geo Television quoted Asif as saying: ??We have already said ?no more? to America, so Trump?s ?no more? has no importance. We are ready to give all account for every single penny to America in public.?? Asif said that Trump?s tweet was borne out of frustration, and that the United States should pursue dialogue with Afghanistan?s insurgents rath- er than military force. The Afghan ambassador to the United States welcomed Trump?s tweet. ??A promising message to Afghans who have suffered at the hands of terrorists based in Pakistan for far too long,?? Hamdullah Mohib tweeted. The uneasy relationship between the United States and Pakistan has been on a downward spiral since the 2011 US operation that located and killed Osama bin Laden. Trump ratcheted up the pressure last year when he called out Pakistan for harboring Afghan Taliban insurgents. In August, the United States said it would hold up $255 million in military assistance for Pakistan until it cracks down on extremists threatening Afghanistan. On Monday, the Trump administration?s National Security Council said that was still the plan, although the United States would continue to assess the situation. ASSOCIATED PRESS Saudi airstrikes kill 23 in Yemen SANA, Yemen ? Saudi-led coalition airstrikes killed at least 23 people and wounded eight others in the Yemeni city of Hodeida on Monday, officials and witnesses said A fire erupted in a market after one strike targeted a nearby gas station in el-Garrahi district. The coalition could not immediately be reached for comment on the reports. International rights groups have accused the coalition of bombing civilian gatherings, markets, hospitals, and residential areas across Yemen since the beginning of its air campaign against the Iranian backed rebels, known as Houthis, in March 2015. The war has killed more than 10,000 civilians and pushed the Arab world?s poorest country to the brink of famine. The United States has tripled the number of airstrikes this year against Al Qaeda?s branch in Yemen, one of the deadliest and most sophisti- cated terrorist organizations in the world. US coalition fighters have pushed the militants from their coastal strongholds, and the Pentagon recently boasted of killing key Al Qaeda leaders. Yet the top US counterterrorism official and other American intelligence analysts conceded that the campaign has barely dented the terrorist group?s ability to strike US interests. ?It doesn?t feel yet that we?re ahead of the problem in Yemen,? Nicholas J. Rasmussen, who stepped down this month after three years as director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told The New York Times. The threat of a terrorist attack ? with the most commonly feared target a commercial airliner ? emanating from the chaotic, ungoverned areas of Yemen remains high on the government?s list of terrorism concerns. ASSOCIATED PRESS help the many people who could not get home because their cars had been burned. Fire officials said two dogs were rescued from vehicles parked inside. They are believed to have been the only animals inside cars at the time. The Echo Arena said all people and horses were safe. Witnesses said cars seemed to explode every couple of seconds when the fire was at its peak. They said the fire appeared to start in the engine of an older Land Rover and quickly spread. Police said initial reports indicate that an ??accidental fire within a vehicle caused other cars to ignite.?? The blaze started Sunday afternoon. ASSOCIATED PRESS US general cites progress against ISIS WASHINGTON ? The US general who is commanding coalition forces against the group the calls itself the Islamic State said that the militants have lost 98 percent of the land they had previously claimed, and that 7.7 million people have been liberated from their control. But he warned the group could continue as a shadow terror outfit operating without a base. Army Lieutenant General Paul Funk, commanding general of the joint task force fighting the group, said the coalition had grown to 74 nations and had reclaimed more than 25,000 square miles of land from the militants. Yet he warned that the allies can?t let up. ?Their repressive ideology continues . . . and only through coalition and international efforts can the defeat become permanent,?? Funk said in a New Year?s message on the coalition Facebook page. President Trump, in a New Year?s Eve video posted to his official Twitter account that highlighted his first year in office, included an excerpt from a speech in which he vowed to ?defeat radical Islamic terrorism? and ?not allow it to take root in our country.? Last week, the group claimed responsibility for three suicide attacks in Kabul that killed as many as 41 people and wounded 80 at the Afghan Voice Agency and Shi?iterun Tebyan cultural center. That followed a November strike against a Kabul television station that killed two guards and wounded 20, and an October attack on a mosque that killed more than 30. Syrian Democratic Forces are in the final stages of liberating the middle Euphrates Valley from the group, and Iraq is rebuilding after fully expelling it, according to a coalition statement.

But ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL ? North Korea?s surprise call on Monday for direct talks with South Korea could drive a wedge into the decades-old alliance between Seoul and Washington, potentially creating a reprieve from months of tensions but also undercutting President Trump?s tough approach to the nuclear-armed North. A New Year?s Day speech by Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader, contained a dramatic shift in tone and policy regarding the South. After ignoring South Korea for years, Kim called for urgent dialogue to discuss improving ties and easing military tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula, even as he claimed an ability to strike the mainland United States with nuclear missiles. Kim also agreed to a request by President Moon Jaein of South Korea to send a North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics to be held in the South next month. Kim?s about-face, which was broadcast on state-run television, came just days after Washington rallied its allies and rivals to support increasingly punishing United Nations sanctions against North Korea. Analysts said Kim was looking for opportunities to weaken international resolve to enforce the penalties, as well as to sow discord between the United States and South Korea. Moon has repeatedly called for dialogue with the North, hoping that talks would ease tensions and lead to broader international negotiations to end its nuclear weapons program. Hours after Kim?s speech, Moon?s office welcomed the North?s proposal. ? We h a v e a l r e a d y e x pressed our willingness to engage in a dialogue with North Korea at any t ime, i n any place, and in any format, as long as both sides can discuss restoring their relations and peace on the Korean Peninsu- l a ,? s a i d Pa r k S o o - h y u n , Moon?s spokesman. Trump, on the other hand, has stressed maximum pressure and sanctions and even suggested possible military action to force the North to give up its nuclear arsenal. Moon officially supports the enforcement of UN sanctions. In recent weeks, his government has seized two oil tankers on the suspicion that they were used in violation of the sanctions to smuggle refined petroleum products into North Korea through shipto-ship transfers on the high seas. But the South Korean president also agrees with China a n d Ru s s i a t h a t t a l k s a r e needed to resolve the nuclear crisis. Kim?s sudden peace overture Monday will probably encourage both South Korea and China to raise their voices for dialogue. ?Kim Jong Un is using the Pyeongchang Olympics as a way to weaken the sanctions,? said Kim Yong-hyun, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul. ?He is seeking to create a fissure between Seoul and Washington and be tween Washington and Beijing.? In his speech, Kim warned that he had ?a nuclear button? in his office that could send intercontinental ballistic missiles, ICBMs, hurtling toward any point in the mainland United States. He also vowed to increase production of nuclear-capable missiles. In recent years, while ignoring South Korea, North Korea has pursued opportunities for talks with Washington. But those efforts have not created a long-term solution. The United States is not interested in holding talks that lack a clear commitment from the North to discuss denuclearization. The North, however, insists on being recognized as a nuclear state. ?After getting nowhere with the Americans, North Korea is now trying to start talks with South Korea first and then use that as a channel to start dialogue with the United States,? said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

Ignoring pleas for calm from President Hassan Rouhani, Iranian protesters took to the streets in several cities for the fifth day Monday as pent-up economic and political frustrations boiled over in the broadest display of discontent in years. The Iranian government responded with conciliator y words from Rouhani, but also a widening security clampdown ? and a pledge late Monday to crack down even harder. ?We will not at all let insecure situation to continue in Tehran,? Brigadier General Esmaeil Kowsari, deputy chief of the main Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps base in Tehran, told the semiofficial ISNA news agency. ?If this situation continues, the officials will definitely make some decisions and at that point this business will be finished.? Despite Rouhani?s diplomatic language, it was clear the demonstrators would be given no leeway. The deputy interior minister, Hossein Zolfaghari, told the semiofficial Jamaran website, ?From tonight the unrest will be controlled more seriously.? On Monday, a crackdown by the government and security services was building, and riot police officers with water cannons were out in full force in Tehran, the capital. Since the protests began Thursday, at least 13 people have been killed in clashes with security forces, according to state television. One police officer was among the dead and three others were wounded, the Associated Press reported. Officers were targeted in the central city of Najafabad, about 200 miles south of the capital. In all, about 200 people have so far been arrested in Tehran alone since the protests began Assad replaces three top ministers By Bassem Mroue ASSOCIATED PRESS EUROPEAN PRESSPHOTO AGENCY/SHUTTERSTOCK About 200 people have been arrested in Tehran alone since the protests began last Thursday. Thursday, one security official told Iran?s ISNA news agency. There were arrests in provincial towns as well. Rouhani has urged demonstrators to avoid violence but defended their right to protest. He did so again Monday on Twitter. ?People want to talk about economic problems, corruption and lack of transparency in the function of some of the organs and want the atmosphere to be more open,? he wrote. ?The requests and demands of the people should be taken note of.? The protests are not just the largest in Iran since 2009. They also suggest a rejiggering of some traditional divisions. People who live in rural provinces long viewed as supporters of authorities are now leading most of the demonstrations. And while people in Tehra n h av e a l s o t a ke n t o t h e street, the capital is not the epi- center of the protests, as it was during the so-called Green Movement in 2009. In Tehran, many middle-class Iranians share the discontent but also fear insecurity. The frustrations that led to the protests also appear different from the sentiments in 2009. That year, a wave of demonstrations broke out after the contested election of a hardline president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and then turned into a wider protest movement against Iran?s leaders. This time, it is the failure of Rouhani, a moderate, to deliver greater political changes and economic opportunity, despite the lifting of some of the sanctions against Iran as part of the nuclear deal. Young people are especially angry. The average age of those arrested is younger than 25, one official said. The poor economy especial- ly affects Iran?s young people ? more than 50 percent of the population is younger than 30, according to official statistics. Officially, youth unemployment is near 20 percent, but experts say it is really closer to 40 percent. When the protests started Thursday in the city of Mashhad, demonstrators chanted slogans about the weak economy. But as the protests spread, they have taken on a far more political cast. Increasingly, they are being directed at Iran?s entire political establishment. Some demonstrators have even called for the death of Rouhani and of the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The strength and volatility of the protests have caught Iranian politicians by surprise. Some have denounced them as ?riots,? while others have acknowledged that the wide- spread frustrations at their root can no longer be ignored. On Monday in Tehran, the atmosphere was tense and security forces were out in large numbers. Protest occurred sporadically, with people shouting slogans and leaving. The day before, protesters in provincial towns tried to storm police stations, military installations, and also attacked a seminary, state television reported, showing footage of burned cars and fires. Protests have taken place in at least half a dozen cities, including Karaj, Qazvin, Qaemshahr, Dorud, and Tuyserkan, it said. ?We need to improve our economy, and the people?s voices must be heard,? said a 28year-old woman, a piano teacher in Tehran, who asked not to be named out of fear of repercussions. ?I?ll go out tonight again.?

In a phone interview Monday, he confirmed the deaths of husband and wife Mitchell Weiss, 52, and Leslie L. Weiss, 50; their daughter, Hannah, 19; and their son, Ari, 16. ?They were together and they all perished,? he said. ?It is a terrible tragedy.? Leslie Weiss was a neonatal pediatrician and Mitchell Weiss was the head of interventional radiology, both at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater. ?Their lives and medical skills have touched so many in and around our community, and we are forever grateful to them,? Kris Hoce, the hospital?s president, said in a statement mourning their deaths. Hannah and Ari were both involved in the southeastern chapter of United Synagogue Youth, a Conservative Jewish organization that promotes engagement with Israel. Hannah was a student at List College, the undergraduate school of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City, under a program that allows students to pursue two bachelor?s degrees simultaneously, in coordination with Columbia University. In Scarsdale, an affluent suburb just north of New York City, the Westchester Reform Temple learned Sunday of the deaths of husband and wife Bruce M. Steinberg, 50, and Irene G. Steinberg, 51; and their sons, Zachary, 19, William, 18, and Matthew, 13. Zachary was a student at Johns Hopkins University and William at the University of Pennsylvania. The family supported a nonprofit organization, Seeds of Peace, that trains prospective leaders from around the world in conflict resolution. Rebecca Gorman, who attended Seeds of Peace camps in Maine with William Steinberg, said his world travels and loving family had given him confidence and wisdom beyond his years, whether navigating conversations among children from countries in conflict or just listening to friends. ?Whenever he would speak, it left you with an impression for the rest of the day,? said Gorman, 19. ?It?s just hard to accept that more people didn?t get to see what a wonderful young man he was.? Leslie Adelson Lewin, executive director of Seeds of Peace, said Will had ?ambitions for a p o l i t i c a l c a r e e r t h at w e r e formed at Seeds of Peace.? The 10th passenger on the plane was Amanda Geissler, 33, a guide from Back Roads, which provides ?active travel? experiences. Her LinkedIn profile said she was based in Salt Lake City and had received undergraduate and MBA degrees from the University of Wisconsin. The names of the crew members have not been formally released, but Laura Chinchilla, a former president of Costa Rica, said her cousin Juan Manuel Retana was the pilot. Enio Cubillo Araya, director general of Costa Rica?s civil aviation agency, said in a phone interview investigators did not yet know the cause of the crash but early theories include mechanical malfunction, human error, and the possibility that a raft of wind, common in the area this time of year, may have destabilized the small plane. BEIRUT ? President Bashar Assad reshuffled his government Monday, replacing the ministers of defense, information, and industry, Syria?s state news agency SANA reported. SANA did not give a reason for the government reshuffle that comes at a time when Assad?s forces have been gaining ground over the past two years under the cover of Russian airstrikes and with the help of Iran-backed fighters. It said the army commander, General Ali Ayoub, has been named defense minister, replacing Fahd Jassem al-Freij who had held the post since 2012. Ayoub had been the army chief of staff since July 2012 until he became defense minister. The agency added that Imad Sarah has been named information minister, while Mohammed Mazen Youssef was chosen as the new minister of industry. The announcement came as different parts of Syria witnessed violence, mostly in the suburbs of the capital Damascus and northwestern Syria, where troops are on the offensive on the southern edge of Idlib province. Heavy clashes broke out between Syrian government forces and insurgents east of Damascus when troops tried to reach under the cover of a dozen airstrikes a force trapped inside, opposition activists said. The clashes have been ongoing for three days, but, on Sunday, rebels backed by an Al Qaeda-linked cell attacked troops and progovernment gunmen, capturing parts of a military installation and surrounding a force inside. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Syria-based activist Mazen al-Shami said Monday?s fighting was concentrated inside the military installation near the suburb of Harasta, where the government force has been trapped. The Observatory said the Syrian air force conducted at least a dozen airstrikes on Harasta and nearby suburbs. Shami repor ted dozens of airstrikes. He said the government brought in reinforcements overnight and is trying to reach the trapped force. The Observatory said three days of violence in the suburbs of Damascus known as eastern Ghouta has killed 35 civilians, as well as 24 government troops and 29 insurgents. An official with the ultraconservative Ahrar al-Sham insurgent group said the government is negotiating the passage of its fighters trapped in the military installation. The official, who asked not to be named because of the secrecy of the talks said the negotiations are in the preliminary stages. Syria?s state media did not mention the trapped force but blamed insurgents for the violence saying that they are firing shells into government-controlled areas, killing at least one civilian. The UN says government forces are holding nearly 400,000 people under siege in eastern Ghouta. The region was once a hotbed of protest against Assad?s government. A crackdown on demonstrations in Ghouta and other parts of the country in 2011 sparked the ongoing civil war that has killed more than 400,000 people and displaced half of Syria?s population. Government forces battled with rebels and Al Qaeda militants on two fronts in Syria on Sunday as the country closed out another violent year since the country descended into civil war in 2011. In addition to the battle with the Qaeda-linked cell, there was fresh fighting in northwest Syria, along the border between Idlib and Hama provinces, according to the Observatory and Syrian military media.

Bone-chilling cold gripped much of the United States as 2018 began Monday, breaking century-old records, icing over some New Year?s celebrations, and leading to at least two deaths attributed to exposure to the elements. The National Weather Service issued windchill advisories covering a vast area from South Texas to Canada, and from Montana through New England. Dangerously low temperatures enveloped much of the Midwest. T h e Mi l w a u ke e Co u n ty medical examiner?s office said two bodies found Sunday showed signs of hypothermia. They included a man in his 50s found on the ground in an alley and a 34-year-old man. Po l i c e b e l i e v e t h e c o l d weather also may have been a factor in the death of a man in Bismarck, N.D., whose body was found near a river. The cold didn?t deter hundreds of people from ringing in the new year by jumping into Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. Despite subfreezing temperatures and a warning of potential hypothermia from the local fire chief, throngs of people took part in the annual tradition, warming up later with chili or heat from a beach fire pit. A similar event was canceled from the Chicago lakefront, where the temperature dipped below zero as thick white steam rose from the lake Monday morning. Organizers said the arctic blast made jumping into the lake too dangerous. ??I?m not happy about it. But I was down by the lake and, gosh, if you were dropped in there, it?d take you 10 minutes to get out,?? Jeff Coggins, who helped organize the thwarted Chicago event, told WBBM-TV.

And while temperatures are expected to rise briefly on Wednesday into the 20s, he said, snow is likely to follow Thursday, and then the temperatures will plunge again through Saturday. It was 12 degrees at Logan Airport on Monday at 1 p.m., Frank said, and the windchill put it 6 below zero. And in cities such as Boston where wind funnels between buildings, he said, the windchill can drop even lower. At temperatures of 15 below, he said, just 30 minutes outside can cause frostbite to exposed skin. ?You don?t want anybody out in these subzero temperatures; it?s just terrifying,? said Jim Greene, assistant director for Street Homeless Initiatives at the city?s Department of Neighborhood Development. The number of cold-related injuries citywide was not availa b l e Mo n d ay n i g h t , b u t a spokesperson for Massachusetts General Hospital said the emergency room has seen an uptick in cases of hypothermia and frostbite. City shelters and places such as the Pine Street Inn have added beds, Greene said, and South Station has opened for overnight emergency shelter-inplace.

Many of them, said Greene and others who work in shelters, have serious mental health issues that keep them from making good decisions. Some are struggling with addiction or become overwhelmed in crowded shelters. Those are the people at the highest risk, officials said. Outreach and city workers and first responders are on the lookout and already know most of the homeless people who refuse to come inside, Greene said. They are checking on them regularly, he said. Recently, one homeless man who workers know has suffered cold injuries in the past was out in his electric wheelchair, Greene said, and the power ran down, leaving him unable to get around. Boston police found him and took him to Mass. General, Greene said. But with the bracing cold, there are simply fewer people outside to notice when a homeless person is in trouble, he said. The general public should be aware of the danger, he said, and be ready to call 911 if they see a person in distress. As the cold weather drags on, the crush of people in need of services is straining the shelter system and city resources. LaFrazia, of St. Francis House, said her workers have picked up extra hours and are serving extra meals. They are asking for donations of hats, gloves, hand warmers, winter coats, and footwear ? they?re giving out supplies as fast as they come in, she said. The Pine Street Inn, said communications director Barbara Trevisan, has enough coats ? the Patriots made a generous donation last week ? but needs financial donations. They?ve brought in extra staff, she said; their outreach vans, which usually operate at night, have been going 24 hours a day; and they?ve made room in their shelters for 30 to 100 people each night. At South Station, which on Monday was scheduled to be open overnight for the eighth night in a row, from about 35 to 125 people have crowded in minus 32. The previous New Year?s Day record there had stood for 99 years. In Nebraska, temperatures hit 15 below zero before midnight Sunday in Omaha, breaking a record low dating to 1884. Omaha officials cited the forecast in postponing an annual New Year?s Eve fireworks show. It was colder in Des Moines, where city officials closed a downtown outdoor ice skating plaza and said it wouldn?t reopen until the city emerged from sub-zero temperatures. The temperature hit 20 below zero early Monday, with the windchill dipping to negative 31 degrees. In northeastern Montana, the windchill readings dipped as low as minus 58. And in Duluth, Minn., a city known for its severely cold winters, the windchill dipped to 36 below zero.

Even when it?s cold.? The woman coughed hard, her asthma exacerbated by the cold and by her inability to afford an inhaler. She travels with a group, she said, and they all look out for each other. ?Socks, blankets, if we see one of them who needs help, and we have extra, we give it,? said her friend, who also asked to be identified by his first name, Joe. ?Our policy is not hungry, not thirsty, not cold.? Sullivan said ?the MBTA is committed to being a good and responsible neighbor? by offering a warm place for the homeless. Still, it hasn?t been easy: on one recent night, a police officer got a knee injury during a scuffle with one of the people staying overnight, Sullivan said. The officer was taken to the hospital, and the other man was arrested ? and attacked the booking officer, he said. But homeless people say they are grateful to have places to go, and city and shelter officials say they will do whatever it takes to keep people safe as one freezing day drags into another. ?On days like this, it?s k i n d o f, ?

Court to review sex abuse policies Roberts notes issue in annual judiciary report By Jessica Gresko ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON ? Chief Justice John Roberts is promising a careful evaluation of the federal judiciary?s sexual misconduct policies. Writing in his annual report on the judiciary, issued Sunday, Roberts touched briefly on the issue of workplace sexual misconduct, which has in recent months brought down men in entertainment, politics, and the media. In December, prominent federal appeals court Judge Alex Kozinski retired after accusations by women that he had touched them inappropriately, made le wd comme nts and shown them pornography. ??Events in recent months have illuminated the depth of the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace, and events in the past few weeks have made clear that the judicial branch is not immune,?? Roberts wrote, without mentioning Kozinski by name. Rober ts had pre viously asked that a working group examine the judiciary?s workplace conduct policies, with a report expected by May 1. The chief justice wrote that the group will examine whether changes are needed in a number of areas, from codes of conduct to the handling of misconduct complaints. ??I have great confidence in the men and women who comprise our judiciary. I am sure that the overwhelming number have no tolerance for harassment and share the view that victims must have clear and immediate recourse to effective remedies,?? the chief justice wrote in the 16-page report. Kozinski resigned two weeks ago after The Washington Post reported that 15 women had accused him of sexual harassment. Other women came forward later with similar complaints. The women, many of whom ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE ?Events in recent months have illuminated the depth of the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace. The judicial branch is not immune.? JOHN ROBERTS Supreme Court chief justice had served as his law clerks, said Kozinski had touched them inappropriately, made unwanted sexual comments and forced them to view sexual materials on his computer. Kozinski had served on the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals for more than three decades, establishing a reputation as a powerful and unpredictable intellect and a vivid writer. Kozinski, a libertarian, was first appointed to the Ninth Circuit by President Ronald Reagan in 1985. From 2007 to 2014, he served as chief judge of the court, the largest federal appeals court in the United States. In announcing his retirement, Kozinski suggested that he had been misunderstood and apologized. ?I?ve always had a broad sense of humor and a candid way of speaking to both male and female law clerks alike,? he wrote. ?In doing so, I may not have been mindful enough of the special challenges and pressures that women face in the workplace.? Roberts said the task force may look into whether enough protection is given to young lawyers who serve as clerks to judges. The lawyers, who typically serve for a year soon after graduating from law school, might require special attention, Roberts suggested, because they are supposed to keep confidential what happens in their judge?s chambers. ?I expect the working group to consider whether changes are needed in our codes of conduct, our guidance to employees ? including law clerks ? on issues of confidentiality and reporting of instances of misconduct, our educational programs, and our rules for investigating and processing misconduct complaints,? Roberts wrote. Roberts spent most of his year-end report talking about the federal judiciary?s response to this year?s devastating hurricanes, which affected Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and he also mentioned wildfires in California Roberts praised judges and court employees in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico in particular, saying that after hurricanes Irma and Maria, they ??responded in dedicated and even heroic fashion,?? continuing to work ??even in the face of personal emergencies.?? He said the judiciary has also learned lessons from the storms and will develop better backup communications systems and do more to position emergency supplies in areas susceptible to hurricanes and flooding. Roberts said the judiciary must be ready for a range of potential disasters, such as earthquakes, cyberterrorism, and terrorist attacks. ??The courts cannot provide food, shelter, or medical aid, but they must stand ready to perform their judicial functions as part of the recovery effort,?? he wrote. thayer.org/closer JOIN US FOR OUR WINTER OPEN HOUSE Middle & Upper School Grades 5-12 Monday, Jan 8, 2018 | 5:30pm?8pm Thayer Academy 745 Washington Street, Braintree, MA 02184 www.thayer.org A6 The Region T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, JA N U A R Y 2 , 2 0 1 8 Hospitals often illнprepared to help Alzheimer?s patients uALZHEIMER'S DISEASE Continued from Page A1 chines, frenetic activity, rigid schedules ? runs contrary to the needs of patients who arrive confused and fearful. ?Hospitals were never designed to accommodate people with dementia,? said Susan Antkowiak, vice president of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter of the Alzheimer?s Association. With an estimated 120,000 Massachusetts residents suffering from Alzheimer?s disease, and 150,000 expected by 2025, an effort is underway to improve patients? experiences in a place one advocate calls the last frontier of dementia care: hospitals. A committee established in 2016 by the Legislature recently called on hospitals to develop, within three years, a comprehensive plan for addressing the needs of patients with dementia, about 60 to 80 percent of whom have Alzheimer ?s. Composed of elder-care specialists, government officials, and patients? caregivers, the committee recommended establishing protocols for identifying people with dementia, training staff, and changing the surroundings, such as creating quiet areas. The recommendations are voluntary, and hospitals face big challenges adapting their fast-paced, high-tech environment to the needs of fragile minds. But the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, which had a representative on the committee, said hospitals are committed to addressing the problem. A hospital was not an ideal environment for Steve Johanson, who was diagnosed when he was 59 ? among the 5 percent of Alzheimer?s patients who are stricken before age 65. When Steve began experiencing terrifying hallucinations that caused him to strike out defensively, his doctor advised a hospital visit to adjust his medications. Judy took him to the emergency room at a hospital she declined to name. ?I thought we were going to a safe place,? she said. ?I found out they were really not prepared.? After hours of waiting, Steve began hallucinating and grabbed his wife. As the staff rushed to subdue him, they kept asking him why he was attacking her. To Judy, that was like asking a person having a seizure why he?s thrashing about. Didn?t they understand that Steve is a gentle man in the grip of a disease he cannot control? Soon the Johansons were moved to a separate area, with a guard at the door. Sedated, Steve lay with his wrists tied to the bed rails above his head. Judy made sure the restraints were removed within a halfhour, but the couple stayed in the emergency room for four days, until they found a bed in a geriatric psychiatry unit at another hospital. The problems persisted at the second hospital, as miscommunications and misunderstandings led to Steve being restrained again. Judy insisted on staying at his side for 24 hours to ensure every staff member on every shift understood her husband?s condition. ?Every single person had empathy. They were skilled in their professions ? just not educated in Alzheimer?s,? she said. Ju d y Jo h a n s o n , 5 5 , i s a board member of the Alzheimer?s Association?s local chapter. If someone like her had such a struggle, she worries, how excruciating must it be when the patient?s spouse is frail and elderly, or when there is no advocate at all? Dr. Mark Messenger, a Lynn internist who specializes in home care for elderly people, said a hospital stay can be disorienting for anyone but becomes traumatic for a person who?s already confused. When patients become agitated, the hospital?s response is often to sedate them, with inevitable RHIANA KOHL ?I felt like we were aliens that had just landed in a place that had . . . no concept of the disease my husband had.? JUDY JOHANSON, referring to a hospital visit with her husband, Steve (above) side effects, Messenger said. Many people with Alzheimer?s are accustomed to walking a great deal, he said. In the hospital, they?re required to stay put , frus trating them and speeding their decline. People often lose the abilities they had before admission, such as how to dress themselves. Messenger tries to keep his patients out of the hospital whenever possible. ?When they come home, they?re not the same person as when they went in,? he said. Barbara Meehan of Wareham witnessed that phenomenon with her late partner, Faye Miles, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer?s in 2008. Miles was hospitalized three times for urinary tract infec- tions. Each time, she returned home less able to take care of herself. After the final visit, Miles had to move into a nursing home. She died in 2015 at age 75. Like the Johansons, Meehan and Miles said they encountered hospital clinicians who were well-meaning but ill-informed. At one hospital, when Meehan left Miles overnight, she returned to find her with one hand bruised and the other tied to a railing. Miles had been pulling out the intravenous line. ?If they called me, I would have come to hold her hand,? said Meehan, who had been with Miles for 35 years. Even though she told staff- ers that Miles had Alzheimer?s, Meehan said, a social worker interviewed the patient, heedlessly inscribing Miles?s skewed responses. State law requires police officers and staff at nursing homes to receive training in dementia. But hospitals remain one of the last frontiers of dementia care, said Daniel Zotos, director of public policy and advocacy for the Alzheimer?s Association?s local chapter. Although every state has an Alzheimer?s disease plan, Massachusetts is alone in establishing a committee focused solely on hospitals, according to the national Alzheimer?s Association. The committee?s September report provided 70 pages of re- sources and suggestions. Patricia M. Noga, vice president for clinical affairs at the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, said the association has formed a working group to identify ways hospitals can change and share knowledge about practices that are known to work. ?Everybody is on board with it,? Noga said. Emerson Hospital, in Concord, has already taken steps to accommodate patients with dementia, said Margaret Foley, director of care management. The staff works to help patients maintain the abilities they arrived with, she said. Trying to avoid sedating medications, the hospital seeks other ways to soothe, such as a family photo or a familiar blanket. Zotos said many hospitals have instituted beneficial practices, ?but these efforts are in no way a standard, are often piecemeal, and would certainly lack the comprehensive approach outlined in the report that is necessary for success.? Many effective measures ?are not a heavy lift,? said Alice Bonner, Massachusetts secretary of elder affairs and cochairwoman of the legislative committee. She recalled a daughter telling the committee how merely placing her mother near a window had eased the ordeal. And other changes, such as lowering noise levels, benefit all patients, Bonner said. Bonner expressed confidence the committee?s work will reap results, because dementia stirs such deep concern. She sees it at every talk she gives: When she mentions dementia, people are riveted and line up afterward to talk with her. ?Everyone has a story,? Bonner said. ?Dementia just strikes a chord with people. This is a disease that is about families.? Felice J. Freyer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congress faces a long to-do list when it returns this week, with deadlines looming on difficult issues ? including how to fund the government and avoid a shutdown, stabilizing the health program for poor children, and whether to shield young undocumented immigrants from deportation. Fresh off a party-line vote to overhaul the tax code, the negotiations will test whether Congress and the White House still have the potential to craft any form of bipartisan agreement. If so, several of the year?s most contested issues might be resolved with months to spare before the 2018 midterm campaign heats up. If not, the government could soon be on the verge of a shutdown, with pressing questions regarding health care, immigration, and other policies left unresolved. Also on the agenda is emergency relief for regions upended by last year?s natural disasters, a key national security program, and the fate of an agreement to stabilize health insurance markets under the Affordable Care Act. A big unknown is whether the shortened timetable will prove an asset in addressing all the issues before Congress, or a hindrance. Officials in both parties hope to make progress by Jan. 19, when a short-term government funding bill that Congress passed last month expires. On Wednesday, congressional leaders from both parties will meet at the Capitol with White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and legislativeaffairs director Marc Short to renew talks on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which expires March 5. In September, President Trump decided to sunset the program ? started under the Obama administration ? that protects 700,000 young immigrants, often called ??dreamers,?? from deportation. Congressional Republicans and the White House have demanded that any deal to protect these immigrants inclu de stronger border enforcement ? but exactly what that looks like is expected to be a key sticking J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE/ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE Bipartisan agreements might be needed to make headway in several areas, with this year?s midterm elections looming. Tax cuts likely to prove to be a poor substitute for pay raises uTAX CUT Continued from Page A1 this year but a $1,400 boost the next year, and so on. If we could get wages growing robustly again, our takehome pay in 2025 would be as much as $5,000 higher. Tax cuts don?t work like this. By 2025, our $1,000 pay bump is actually slated to shrink to around $700. There?s no compounding, as you have with wages. And several of the biggest point in negotiations. Congressional Democrats express openness to finding additional funding for border security but have ruled out funding the wall along the US-Mexico border that Trump promised during his presidential campaign. Democrats are under intense pressure from Hispanic lawmakers and progressive ac- benefits for middle-income families ? including the greatly expanded child tax credit and the larger standard deduction ? are tied to a new, slower-growing inflation adjuster, so they won?t keep up with costs quite as well. Then, come 2026, even this modest tax benefit may disappear, because many of the most worker-friendly elements are set to expire ? unless a future Congress extends them. The takeaway here isn?t really about the limited impact of the Republican tax plan, only its limited effect on middleincome workers. For corporations and big investors, the benefits are much larger, and they don?t expire. But for people who earn paychecks ? rather than profits ? this doesn?t help much. They may, over time, be able to bargain for a share of the corporate gains, but the estimates used above already try to account for this trickle-down effect. In the new post-tax-cut tivists to reject any government funding deal that does not resolve the issue. Already, Democratic senators have helped pass multiple funding deals that did not include DACA protections, including one in December. About 22,000 DACA recipients failed to renew their applications after the Trump administration gave them 30 days to do so this September, with reports emerging of some applications getting lost in the mail. At least 7,800 people in this group had lost their DACA status by December, and the rest will lose protection before March, according to the Center for American Progress, a center-left think tank. ??If Democrats don?t hold the line and ensure dreamers get world, the biggest issue for workers? welfare hasn?t really changed: It isn?t so much what the federal government does to provide tax cuts, but what employers deliver in terms of rising wages.

A fourth time is unacceptable.?? Senate Majority L eader Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, said last month he hopes a bipartisan working group led by Senators Dick Durbin, Democrat of Illinois; Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona; and Charles Grassley, Republican of Iowa, comes up with a deal the Senate can pass in January. But he didn?t commit to a specific timetable for a vote. Lawmakers will also have to agree to new government funding levels or pass another shortterm extension of spending limits ? known as a continuing resolution ? by Jan. 19. Failure to do so would cause a government shutdown, which would cost the economy about $6.5 billion every week it lasts. Keeping the government funded at existing levels (or increasing government spending) would put Congress on track to trigger automatic spending cuts through what is called the sequester, because of a 2011 law that imposed caps on spending. Congress must raise these caps, as it did in 2013 and 2015, by Februar y to avoid these across-the-board cuts to government programs. But Democrats and Republicans have been unable to resolve an impasse over how to raise the caps. Republicans passed a bill in December to increase military funding by $650 billion through Sept. 30. Congressional Democrats have held firm to the line that every dollar increase in military spending must be met by an equal increase in domestic spending, in line with previous agreements in the past to avoid the sequester. Lawmakers also will have to increase the debt ceiling by March, when the Treasury Department can no longer meet the federal government?s financial obligations without additional borrowing, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center. Similarly unresolved is the Children?s Health Insurance Program, which 9 million children use to help meet their medical costs. Right before the Christmas break, Congress plowed $3 billion into CHIP ? money that will prevent 1.9 million children from losing coverage in Ja n u a r y, a c c o r d i n g t o t h e Georgetown University Health Policy Institute. But that temporary solution keeps CHIP funded for only three more months, and state health programs throughout the country have begun notifying families that funding could expire. High court to rule whether rental car driver could refuse police search By Adam Liptak NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON ? In the summer of 2014, Terrence Byrd was driving a rental car on an interstate highway in Pennsylvania. His fiancщe had rented it, and he was using it with her permission. But he was not listed on the rental agreement as an authorized driver. A state trooper, David Long, noticed Byrd and decided to follow him. At a hearing months later, Long testified that Byrd had aroused his suspicion by holding the steering wheel as driving instructors recommend, at the ?10 and 2? position, and by sitting far back in his seat. A lawyer for Byrd seemed incredulous about all of this. ?So the only reason you pulled out was the fact that he was at 10 and 2 and you couldn? t see him?? the lawyer asked. L o n g t h e n m e n ti o n e d a third factor. ?In a rental vehi- cle,? he said. ?That?s what drew my attention to it, yes.? In short order, Long pulled Byrd over, for failing to move into the right lane fast enough after passing a slow-moving truck. At that point, the car rental company?s boilerplate contract collided with the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches. Because Byrd was not listed as an authorized driver, Long said he was free to search the car without Byrd?s consent. He found body armor and 49 bricks of heroin in the trunk. After a judge refused to suppress the evidence, Byrd was convicted of drug charges and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Next week, the Supreme Court will consider whether privacy rights turn on the fineprint contracts signed by the more than 115 million people who rent cars every year. ?If the government prevails,? Byrd?s lawyers wrote in a brief filed last week, ?it will have the power to conduct suspicionless searches whenever it stops a rental car driven by an unlisted driver for a routine traffic violation.? Letting a family member or friend drive a car you have rent- ee (with the renter?s permission, on company business) or a person who appears at the time of the rental and signs an additional driver form.? Byrd was none of those. But he testified that he and the woman who rented the car, An arrest pits the Fourth Amendment against a vehicle rental contract. ed can be a breach of the rental contract. But it is not generally considered a crime, and it is not obvious that people who drive cars that others have rented should forfeit their Fourth Amendment rights. The contract in Byrd?s case, from Budget, was typical. It said that ?the only ones permitted to drive the vehicle other than the renter are the renter?s spouse, the renter?s co-employ- Latasha Reed, had been together for 17 years, had five children, and were engaged to be married. In rejecting Byrd?s appeal, the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals, in Philadelphia, acknowledged that federal appeals courts have differed about ?whether the sole occupant of a rental vehicle has a Fourth Amendment expectation of privacy when that occupant is not named in the rental agreement.? The 3rd Circuit?s own precedents, the court said, ?determined such a person has no expectation of privacy and therefore no standing to challenge a search of the vehicle.? Byrd?s lawyers said this ignored reality. ?Widespread noncompliance with authorized-driver provisions is an open secret,? they wrote, which is why rental agreements ?often specify that the renter will carry greater risk of loss when an unlisted driver operates the vehicle.? The Supreme Court?s decision in the case is likely to have an outsize effect on black and Hispanic drivers, according to a brief from the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Poor people rent a lot of cars. ?There is a commonly held misconception that car rental is a luxury reserved for the wealthiest individuals,? a 2010 tax study found, noting that ?more car rentals occ ur at neighborhood locations than at airport locations.? ?African-Americans generate over four times as many retail rental transactions as otherwise comparable Caucasians,? the study said. Other reports have demonstrated that black drivers are more likely than white ones to be pulled over by police and more likely to be searched during the stop. Solicitor General Noel J. Francisco urged the justices to hold Byrd to the terms of the rental agreement. ?It is common knowledge,? he wrote, ?that car rental is a personal transaction that does not make the car available for general enjoyment, and straw man car rentals disserve society by frustrating law-enforcement efforts to prevent smuggling and other crimes.?

One is the Children?s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, which provides affordable health coverage for almost 9 million children in families who earn too much to quality for Medicaid but still have relatively modest incomes; regular federal funding for that program expired at the end of September. The other is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, under which the Obama administration had protected from deportation some 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to this country as kids. In September, Trump said he was bringing DACA to an end; the administration claims, disingenuously, that it doesn?t have the legal authority to decide not to deport the socalled Dreamers without explicit congressional approval ? though it has also said it will defer action for six months to give Congress time to act to protect the Dreamers if it wants. The stop-gap funding measure passed just before Christmas does avert the immediate crisis for CHIP. Otherwise, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 16 states would have run out of funding for their CHIP programs in January, with another 21 arriving at that point in February and March. DACA isn?t quite as pressing, because as Trump himself has said, he could revisit the issue. But continuing uncertainty has created confusion for states trying to plan for their CHIP programs and trauma for the Dreamers trying to plan their futures. Whatever the merits of the tax cut, that?s now law. When Congress returns from its Christmas break, it?s time to focus on CHIP and DACA. As US Senator Ed Markey sees it, there is bipartisan support to resolve both issues. ?We probably have the votes from the Republicans on both CHIP and DACA,? he says. ?But it is all being held hostage by Republican leadership and the White House.? President Trump, for example, has said and tweeted in recent days that he won?t do a DACA deal without funding for a wall on the southern border ? the same wall he repeatedly claimed Mexico would pay for ? or without changes in immigration policy, including an end to family-based, or chain migration, the effects of which the administration has greatly exaggerated. Markey thinks the Republican leadership will also probably try to leverage more money for the Defense Department, a waiver of the so-called pay-go rules, under which spending increases here must be offset there, and a reauthorization of surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence Service Act that allows monitoring of foreigners but also sweeps into its net communications of US citizens. These are very different and complex matters, all important enough to be considered on their individual merits rather than jammed together in the next bout of budgetary brinksmanship. Republicans have been declaring for months that they intend to find a solution on both CHIP and DACA. The time has come to make good on those pledges ? and before the impending midterm elections make any legislative action uncertain. And if they don?t? Well, then Republicans will have provided voters with yet another reason why don?t deserve to stay in power. The ethics of warning the public about a dangerous president I n spite of widespread concern regarding Donald Trump?s ability to execute his office, the psychiatric establishment continues to enforce silence on its members, depriving the public of their expertise. Hampering the profession?s ability to warn about danger needs reconsideration. A sense of this critical need gave rise to ?The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump,? a collection of mental health expertise made accessible for lay readers. Ordinarily, psychiatrists abide by what is called the Goldwater rule, which prohibits diagnosing public figures without a personal examination and without consent. But assessing dangerousness is different from making a diagnosis, in that we are evaluating the situation, not the person. The same person may not be dangerous in a different situation, for example, but a diagnosis stays with the person. Diagnosing a public figure is outside our business and should not be done ? but it is also irrelevant when it comes to danger. For example, a Duke University study has shown that almost half of presidents until recent history probably suffered from a mental illness, and yet many have been great leaders. Dangerousness in a public figure is what threatens public health, and the only situation in which we as mental health professionals have a role, if any. While police and security personnel generally step in after the fact, mental health professionals are expected to intervene when they see signs or risk of danger. In all 50 states, they have the legal authority, if not the obligation, to report, to warn, and to take steps to protect potential victims, be they themselves, others, or the public. This includes involuntary hospitalization so that an evaluation can be performed ? which can then lead to a diagnosis, among other things But first and foremost is the health and safety of the persons potentially endangered. The humanitarian goals of medicine are outlined in the World Medical Association?s Geneva Declaration, in direct response to the complicity of doctors under Nazism, and echo the principles underlying the American Psychiatric Association?s code of ethics, which follows the American Medical Association?s code, and the Hippocratic oath. Our assessment leads us to recognize that warning about a public figure should not be based on formal understanding about which professions should be allowed to voice their concerns in which forums, but on whether rules continue to serve these humanitarian goals when mental health expertise might be critical to a population?s wellbeing and survival. Few criticisms, if any, have been made against a prominent psychiatrist who has overtly broken the Goldwater rule (by declaring, without examination, that Trump does not have a certain disorder). On the other hand, authors of ?The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump? do not diagnose but are repeatedly accused of violating the Goldwater rule, because it has been reinterpreted since Trump?s campaign and presidency to deem any comment of any kind on this crucial public health issue as an ethical transgression. This discrepancy ought to raise questions as to whether we are really speaking about ethics ? or is our concern merely a public appearance of professionalism? Extraordinary situations may re- quire an extraordinary response, if we are keeping with medical neutrality and the standards of our practice. To ramp up ?ethics? to the point of turning a rule into a gag order, just to maintain a semblance of professionalism, fosters a complicity of silence on the nation?s mental health experts in the face of public health risks of potentially catastrophic proportions. ?The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump? became an instant bestseller in ways that even one of the largest publishers in the nation did not anticipate. Perhaps it is an indication of the public?s thirst for professional insight rather than being left to rely on columnists and late-night comedians. The book contains the work of 27 mental health experts but represents a movement of thousands. Given that misconceptions and stigma ? and the very use of psychiatric terms as epithets ? arise from a lack of knowledge, mental health professionals should further engage in educating the public, not less. And it is about time the professional organizations catch up with the voice of their professional members, rather than trying suppress their interactions with a public struggling to comprehend the nature and magnitude of the risk it faces from an unstable leader. ______________ Dr. Bandy X.

Is this the best we can do? Instead of spending $200,000 or more on a fallout shelter in the faint hope of protecting yourself against a nuclear attack (?Amid tensions, fallout shelters get another look,? Page A1, Dec. 26), it would be better to work to prevent nuclear war in the first place. Donate to one of the nonprofits with this mission. Support Senator Ed Markey?s bill that would require congressional authorization before nuclear weapons could be used, except in response to a nuclear attack. Push the government to use negotiations, not just sanctions, to restrain North Korea?s nuclear program. Support the idea of an Olympic Truce, in which the United States would not engage in military exercises on the Korean peninsula, and North Korea would not test missiles or warheads, during the time of the Olympics in South Korea this winter. We?re more likely to survive if we work together to avoid war than if we each build our own fallout shelter. CHRISTOPHER WEYANT KEN OLUM Sharon After verdict in fatal shooting, one is left with an expansive sense of grief What exactly is zero tolerance on sexual harassment? By Jonathan Brock, Billie Pirner Garde, and Marcia Narine Weldon O sponsible for preventing harassment and for immediately placing any complaint into the proper channel for resolution, (b) must ensure employees do not suffer retaliation by peers, supervisors, or others, and (c) will be held accountable in their career opportunities and compensation if they fail to adhere to (a) and (b). Similarly, higher levels of leadership ? senior executives and board (or in the case of legislatures, the bipartisan leadership) ? must know that this accountability also extends to them. They are responsible for establishing and ensuring the effectiveness of the overall program come forward without fear, and to learn if unreported sexual misconduct or other noncompliance is occurring. As recent events have proved, lack of reported incidents does not mean there is no harassment; and intimidation can pervade a workplace below the surface despite a stated zero-tolerance policy. Such assessments almost always require an independent outside entity confidentially administering anonymous surveys and interviews. The best of these use benchmarked and validated questions that can provide insight into the effectiveness of the compliance program and whether employees trust the system. Finally, in those workplaces in which employees have formed a union, it is critical that they be involved in the development, implementation, and assessment of the policy. They hear things and know things that management will probably not otherwise be able to learn, or may be likely to overlook. Let us not forget that highly visible sectors such as the media, entertainment, and the political realm are only part of the workplace landscape. Employees in smaller, less-visible, or less easily policed sectors ? such as restaurants, farms, retail outlets, laboratories, and warehouses ? may have the most to worry about. Their employers may lack the resources or incentives to motivate the needed changes. If so, protections must come through the regulatory presence of state, local, or federal agencies, or from public-interest advocates, none of which will have sufficient reach or resources for the task. Calling for zero tolerance is a good start, but is only the beginning of the journey to real protections and cultural change. Achieving zero tolerance requires sustained and focused leadership on the programs, systems, skills, and backing for reporting, investigation, and accountability. In the absence of this ongoing investment by business and political leaders, we may simply be witnessing a wave of celebrity firings and embarrassing political resignations, with no lasting change away from the glare of floodlights. A zero-tolerance promise without an underlying system to redeem that promise is an invitation for nothing to happen, or worse. 0 ne encouraging organizational response to the recent spate of high-profile sexual harassment allegations has been the instant announcement of a zero-tolerance policy. But merely calling for zero tolerance or citing a lack of reported complaints as evidence of an alreadyeffective policy doesn?t ensure a harassment-free workplace. Indeed, a lack of complaints often means exactly the opposite: that employees fear nothing will be accomplished except to expose themselves to retaliation. The simple announcement of a zero-tolerance policy alone will not make previous fears disappear, nor nonfunctioning systems for complaints and protections roar to life, and the culture will not change. Anyone who complains after such an announcement is likely to be at the same risk as before ? or worse, unless critical new steps are taken A true zero-tolerance policy requires not only good intentions, but also a trustworthy, independent system, staffed with the proper skills to conduct swift, full, and fair investigations and to carry them to a just resolution, observing principles of confidentiality and discretion, and including ongoing protection of those who report. Only if the board and top-level officers back the process will investigators be able to provide the truth. Multiple channels are needed so that all concerned employees can find a comfortable and trusted avenue for reporting a problem. First, everyone must be confident that, if they report a problem, action will be taken, and they will be protected from retaliation and career damage. The best programs focus on prevention but are ready to respond swiftly when incidents arise. They go to lengths to ensure protection, including review of all proposed discipline to check if it might be payback for some prior complaint. These protections should extend to witnesses who take the risk of coming forward. Second, a trusted program must be established that has the power to protect and investigate, rectify career damage, and address personal injury or trauma. Proper investigations and resolutions require strict protocols, expertise, and full access to information, so that facts are found, conclusions are fair and accurate, rights and confidentiality of all are protected, and proper and proportionate accountability is assured. Third, all managers and supervisors must know that they (a) are re- TOLERANCE along with a strong code of ethics as the standard. Fourth, achieving a culture of zero tolerance means that measures, incentives, and informal norms do not tacitly condone inappropriate behavior. Bad behavior must not get a wink and a pass. Such cultural features create an undertow that the best antiharassment training and policy cannot overcome. Instead, specific policies should direct bonuses, raises, and other incentives and opportunities to those who, in addition to meeting business targets, actively prevent and respond appropriately to harassment, retaliation, and other compliance problems. Clawbacks should be considered if unsupportive behavior later comes to light. Injurious behavior must be called out and exemplary behaviors credited: Without naming names, statements to the workforce can inform employees that actions have been taken against perpetrators, or that behavior in support of zero tolerance has been rewarded. What gets measured gets treasured. Fifth, periodic assessments are needed to determine accurately whether employees believe they can The authors are former members of the US Department of Labor?s Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee, a bipartisan labormanagement group, which unanimously developed a ?best practices? template for antiretaliation programs. So we have a verdict at last in the case of Keith Williams and Wesson Colas, two young men whose rivalry led one of them to fire a bullet that killed an innocent bystander (?Two men are convicted in ?14 carnival murder,? Page A1, Dec. 29). Has justice been done? It would seem so, from the reaction of the victim?s relatives, who ?fought back tears and embraced when they heard the verdicts, which carry an automatic life sentence without the possibility of parole for each defendant.? But think about it: young people whose life choices are so restricted, whose sense of self is so confined, that the only achievement they can envision is dominance over a neighborhood rival, and whose need for that dominance is so consuming that they react with violence when it is thwarted. Our society has largely created the conditions that limit their horizons and their opportunities, while giving them easy access to weapons. And our solution when they lash out is to lock them away for life ? as if any other options were impossible or too expensive to contemplate. It is right to grieve for the innocent victim, but our grief ? and our responsibility ? should not stop there. Our solution is to lock them away for life ? as if any other options were impossible. JAN SCHREIBER Brookline State shouldn?t cut back on a key support for minorityнowned businesses The Boston Globe Spotlight series ?Boston. Racism. Image. Reality.? highlights the need to support African-Americanowned businesses and other small businesses owned by people of color. The state?s Small Business Technical Assistance program, administered by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corp., has been quietly doing just that since 2006 by providing grants to community-based groups in Boston, in Gateway Cities, and across the Commonwealth. These community groups, in turn, helped nearly 1,700 small businesses last year ? 51 percent people of color, 31 percent immigrants, 55 percent women-owned, and a total of 88 percent that fell into at least one of the state?s categories for disadvantaged business owners. What?s more, 79 percent of these businesses achieved positive outcome by opening, growing, or stabilizing their business. Unfortunately, funding for this highly effective program has been cut by 62.5 percent over the past two budget cycles. We urge Governor Baker and the Legislature to restore the program to the fiscal 2016 level of $2 million or more. If we are serious about moving the needle on racial inequity, then we have to invest in programs that work.

He promised to rebuild the bridge shortly after the closure, but the project has not moved forward. ?I look forward to getting into the nitty-gritty of it,? said Councilor Annissa EssaibiGeorge, a Walsh ally who has focused on rehabilitation and homeless programs. The mayor also announced the launch of Boston Hires ? an expansion of his administration?s job training initiative that aims to secure training and what he described as ?good-paying? jobs for 20,000 low-income Boston residents by 2022. The mayor said he would work with nonprofit partners and private employers, and Boston Hires will begin recruitment next month. The city would also offer training and jobs in his administration to residents and Boston public school graduates through a new City Academy program, his office said. Wa l s h d i d n o t s a y h o w much city funding would be devoted to the jobs and training initiative. He called for the region?s colleges and universities to help build ?academic pathways? for students through recruitment in local schools. In 2016, he said, 710 Boston residents attended a private college in the region on scholarships worth roughly $32 million, an increase over the previous four years of 14 percent. But he asked colleges to ?do more? by collectively adding 100 full scholarships for city students. ?Come into more of our schools. Admit more of our graduates,? Walsh said, addressing his remarks to the many colleges and universities in the Boston area. The mayor also announced creation of a Boston?s Way Home Fund, which seeks $10 million in private funds to support 200 new units of longterm housing for chronically homeless men and women over the next four years. The Bank of America has pledged $250,000 and to help administer the account. In addition to replacing the Long Island bridge, Walsh also committed to developing more rehabilitation programs for drug and alcohol abuse. ?We will create, on Long Island, the comprehensive, longterm recovery campus that our city and state need more than ever, to tackle the opioid crisis,? the mayor said. He did not say when construction would begin, but his office estimated the cost of a new bridge would range from $40 million to $100 million. The city would then invest in a recovery facility that would offer detox, residential treatment, peer support, and transitional housing services. Essaibi-George welcomed the proposal, though she wondered about the logistics ? when construction would begin; how existing structures on the island would be used; and whether there are other uses for the island pending construction of a new facility. ?How are we going to make it happen?? she asked. She also questioned what role the city of Quincy would have in plans for a new bridge.

YAN WU/GLOBE STAFF On other matters, Walsh said his administration will continue to prioritize changes and improvements to Boston schools and education programs, including an effort to renovate school buildings or build additional ones. The mayor said the city will ?scale up? a pilot food program in use at several schools in East Boston, ?until every student gets at least two fresh, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh delivered his second inauguration speech on Monday. nutritious meals, every day, all across the district.? Walsh, 50, who handily won a second four-year term in November, was sworn in by Supreme Judicial Court Justice Kimberly S. Budd and former vice president Joseph R. Biden Jr., an invited guest who called Walsh ?a mayor who will never forget where he came from.? ? T h a t ?s t h e r e a s o n h e sought this position in the first place,? said Biden, who has grown close to the mayor in recent years, adding, ?This is a match made in heaven, Marty Walsh and Boston.? The city will celebrate its 400-year anniversary in four years, and Walsh said his goal ? laid out in an Imagine Boston 2030 plan ? will be to prepare the city for the next 100 years. ?We are one of the greatest cities of the world, and after nearly four centuries our greatest days are yet to come,? the mayor said. Walsh later swore in the 13 members of the City Council, including new councilors Lydia Edwards, a lawyer from East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End; Ed Flynn, a Navy veteran and probation officer whose district stretches from South Boston to the South End; and Kim Janey, whose district makes up much of Roxbury. With the new additions, the council has six women, all of color, a historic precedent and a reflection of the changing political landscape in Boston. Later on Monday, Councilor Andrea Campbell was elected council president ? the first black woman to serve in that role ? and she praised Walsh?s focus on affordable housing, education, and public safety in his outline of priorities for the next four years. Campbell said she also had her own priorities, particularly in public safety, such as increasing diversity within the police and fire departments and strengthening a police civilian review board. ?We have an opportunity to ask ourselves, ?What do we want for our city, what do we want for our children, and the next generation??? Campbell said, adding that she looked forward to working with Walsh and for the priorities he set out in his speech. ?One of the things I?m most excited in is him recognizing that we can always move the needle faster, and that we all have to work together, and we have to look forward,?

Despite pleas from DAs, Legislature balks at update to wiretap law uWIRETAP Continued from Page A1 when a judge finds probable cause that a serious crime is being committed in connection with organized crime and normal investigative procedures have been exhausted. Law enforcement officials say the organized crime requirement makes the law too narrow and pre- vents them from being able to gather key evidence to stop murderous street gangs, human trafficking rings, and other criminals. Former attorney general Martha Coakley, who served on a federal task force that went after the mob and similar groups, said she saw how important wiretaps were to break the back *Not to be combined with any other offer. of organized crime. But when criminal activity shifted more to street gangs that use cellphones for drug dealing, violent crime, and human trafficking, the state?s wiretap law remained mired in the past, she said last week. ?In 2017, almost 2018, the unwillingness of the Legislature to give law enforcement the SINCE 1988 www.pfe-inc.com WORLD-CLASS EQUIPMENT - WORLD-CALASS SERVICE NEWTON 275 Centre St. (Exit 17 off Pike) between Bertucci?s & Starbucks 617-244-0812 AUBURN 771 Southbridge St. Auburn, MA 774-321-6600 FRAMINGHAM 303 Worcester Rd.

Coakley paused to find the right phrase ? ?a little inexplicable.? But many lawmakers, defense attorneys, and civil libertarians argue that the changes being sought are a vast expansion of police surveillance authority without privacy protections. That constitutes ?a broad overreach,? said Rahsaan Hall of the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. And for all the paperwork law enforcement officials must go through to ask a judge to approve surreptitious eavesdropping, the courts rarely tell prosecutors no, they note. In 2016, according to data compiled by the Globe, Massachusetts prosecutors applied for 59 warrants to wiretap. Superior Court judges granted all of them. But 59 wiretaps ? that?s fewer than 59 individual telephone numbers tapped because some warrants for the same number were renewed ? is not very many in a state of 6.9 million people. Eight Massachusetts district attorneys did not conduct any wiretaps in 2016, according to filings. The result is that many investigations seen as requiring surreptitious eavesdropping ? extortion, public corruption, racketeering ? are conducted and prosecuted by federal authorities. There were about 100 federal wiretaps in Massachusetts that concluded in 2016, according to official data. Martin W. Healy, chief legal counsel of the Massachusetts Bar Association, which includes many defense attorneys, said his group is opposed to updating the wiretap law. ?There are enough tools already available to federal prosecutors, and we worry about the erosion of people?s privacy rights and due process rights if we expand the wiretap law here in Massachusetts,? he said. Lawmakers wrote the state?s current wiretapping law in response to a 1967 US Supreme Court ruling that found law enforcement?s use of wiretapping without robust judicial oversight unconstitutional. ?The use of such devices by law enforcement officials must be conducted under strict judicial supervision and should be limited to the investigation of MATTHEW J. LEE/GLOBE STAFF/FILE Chief Justice Ralph D. Gants has questioned restricting wiretaps to organized crime. organized crime,? state law says. Under the law, only 12 people in the state can apply for a wiretap warrant: the attorney general and the 11 district attorneys. The law sets such a high bar that the official seeking the permission has to prove to a Superior Court judge there is probable cause the wiretap will show the target has committed or is committing one of several specified serious crimes, and it?s connected to organized crime, such as the Mafia. Street gangs often don?t count. Prosecutors must also convince the judge reviewing a request for a wiretap that all other investigative procedures have been exhausted ? one of the highest hurdles they say they face. Furthermore, the law limits what police can listen to once they get permission to secretly intercept someone?s telephone calls: pertinent information. ?If the target is speaking to a coconspirator about what they are having for dinner, we have to stop listening,? Kim West, the chief of the criminal bureau in the attorney general?s office, testified this year. ?If a target is speaking to a friend about a football game, we have to stop listening. We employ a 90-second rule. If, within the 90 seconds, the conversation does not become pertinent to the crimes we are investigating, we have to stop listening.? Supporters of proposals to update the law point to a 2011 decision by the Supreme Judicial Court that secretly recorded evidence could not be used against a man who was allegedly caught on tape admitting to a Brockton murder. In t h e r u l i n g , R a l p h D. Gants, now the chief justice, wrote that limiting usage of wiretaps to only investigating organized crime makes it ?unavailable to investigate and prosecute the hundreds of shootings and killings committed by street gangs in Massachusetts, which are among the most difficult crimes to solve.? He continued: ?If the Legislature wishes to avoid this result, it should amend [the law] to delete those words.? A bill proposed by Governor Charlie Baker, and backed by Attorney General Maura Healey and all the DAs, would effectively do just that. But Hall, of the ACLU, warns it would go much further, allowing prosecutors to ask a judge for a warrant to tap someone?s phone not just for alleged acts such as murder and human trafficking but also for more petty crimes, such as small-time drug dealing. It would double to 30 days how long a wiretap is allowed before police and prosecutors have to check back in with a judge. And it would allow judicially approved wiretapping of phones outside of Massachusetts if it?s connected to an alleged conspiracy to commit a crime in the state. In November, a version of Baker?s proposal that was considered during the House debate of a wide-ranging criminal justice measure was ruled beyond the scope of the bill. And it was after midnight one Friday in October when a similar measure came before the Senate. With some urgency, Senator Harriette Chandler approached Arline Isaacson, a lobbyist for the state ACLU. Chandler, now the acting Senate president, asked for talking points. Isaacson handed them to her. Chandler walked to the Senate floor to persuade her colleagues to kill the measure. ?We?re rushing it through now,? Chandler said, looking down at the ACLU memo. To pass the amendment ?would be a grave mistake.? When the vote was taken at 12:29 a.m., the language was rejected ? just as some version of it has been regularly for decades ? with 14 votes in favor and 22 votes opposed.

His mission, the mission of his wingman, a 19-yearold kid named Phil Schlamberg, and those in the B-29s they were escorting, was to attack the enemy airfields near Nagoya in Japan. The talk of Japanese surrender was in the air, but then so was Jerry Yellin, on what would be the final combat mission of World War II. Yellin and the other pilots had been told to listen for the code word ?Utah,? which meant the Japanese had surrendered and the war was over. But the word never came and it was only after Jerry Yellin landed back on Iwo Jima that he found out the Japanese had surrendered a few hours before he and the others had bombed and strafed the erstwhile enemy. Worse, when young Phil Schlamberg?s plane didn?t make it back, Jerry Yellin realized the kid had died needlessly. Jerry Yellin returned to the United States with a paralyzing case of post-traumatic stress. He tried to numb his feelings with booze but that only made things worse. He couldn?t get the images of thousands of rotting bodies on Iwo Jima out of his head. He kept losing jobs. He kept thinking about Phil Schlamberg, just a kid. He thought about killing himself. After years of suffering in silence, he began meditating and his brain began to heal. Even so, he couldn?t get over his hatred of the Japanese. He had seen what they had done in war and it was brutal and Jerry Yellin just couldn?t get over that. Then he went to Japan on a business trip in 1983 and stood in the middle of Tokyo and imagined bombs raining down on the place and something inside him shifted. Jerry Yellin felt an odd empathy for an old enemy. Life is funny. Years later, his son Robert moved to Japan and fell in love with a Japanese woman. The woman?s father, Taro Yamakawa, had trained as a kamikaze pilot but the war had ended before he had a chance to kill himself and Allied troops for the emperor. He was against the idea of his daughter marrying an American until he found out that Robert?s father had fought against the Japanese. To Taro Yamakawa, Jerry Yellin was someone to honor, because he fought for his country. The two old soldiers met and, through a translator, made peace with each other and with something bigger than both of them. They stood together, proudly, watching their children marry each other. Jerry Yellin and Taro Yamakawa remained the best of friends for the rest of their lives. Jerry Yellin died a couple of weeks ago. He was 93 and spent half of those years helping veterans who suffered from posttraumatic stress. His great friend, Kevin Jarvis, the director of veterans services in Malden, had traveled to Iwo Jima with Jerry and was looking forward to catching up with him in Washington next month at the 73rd anniversary of the battle of Iwo Jima. Instead, he was left to reflect on a genuine American hero, a man who knew the cost of war and what it does to warriors, and who spent the rest of his life helping those warriors get to a place that he was lucky enough to find after so many years of suffering. ?Listening to Jerry?s stories about flying in the very last mission over Japan and landing on Iwo Jima and then struggling over the years was fascinating and heartbreaking,? Kevin Jarvis said. ?But then it always ended with his joy and pride, with a smile as he spoke about his three grandchildren who live in Japan.? There is an old Japanese proverb which holds that the righteous man has many hardships. Jerry Yellin was a righteous man who used those hardships to help so many others. He was, in a life of war and peace, a mensch. Kevin Cullen is a Globe columnist. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fenway doctor leaves two more posts Accused of sexual harassment, bullying by two doctors, lawyer By Beth Healy GLOBE STAFF A doctor who was dismissed from Fenway Community Health Center after allegedly sexually harassing and bullying co-workers has stepped down from two other prestigious medical positions, according to officials of those institutions. Dr. Harvey J. Makadon, 70, resigned from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center on Dec. 8, a spokeswoman said, the day a Globe story detailed the allegations against him at Fenway. That same day, his role as a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School ended, according to a Harvard spokeswoman. The spokeswomen declined to comment on additional allegations that have surfaced about Makadon in recent weeks, both in his role as a physician at Beth Israel in the 1990s and as a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty. Three men ? two doctors and a lawyer ? told the Globe in detail about improper interactions with Makadon some 25 years ago that are troubling them anew, they said, amid the national furor over sexual harassment. One said Makadon made a pass at him when he was a Harvard graduate student, while another said he was a newly minted doctor, in training under Makadon at Beth Israel, when Makadon allegedly touched him in the dark during a presentation.

NASA/DSCOVR/HANDOUT/EPA A tinier world: The breakdown By Matt Rocheleau GLOBE STAFF The world is a massive place ? some 7.5 billion people and counting. That?s so large, it can be hard to even wrap our brains around worldwide statistics. But what if it were smaller ? a lot smaller? A nonprofit known as The 100 People Foundation aims to frame the global population through a much more manageable lens ? in other words, what it would look like if the world was made up of just 100 people. The Globe took each of the foundation?s statistics and extrapolated them using today?s percentages and added in some of our own. Here?s a look at the world, conveniently shrunk down. R Half would be male, half would be female. R The age breakdown would be: 25 children and young teens; and 75 teens and adults (15 and over), including nine adults 65 and older. R North Americans would be vastly outnumbered: 60 from Asia, 16 from Africa, 10 from Europe; nine from Latin America; and five from North America. R So would native English speakers: 12 would speak Mandarin Chinese as first language; six speak Spanish; five speak English; four speak Hindi; four speak Arabic; and 69 speak other languages. R The third-most popular religion? No religion: there would be 31 Christians; 24 Muslims; 16 unaffiliated; 15 Hindus; seven Buddhists; and seven people who follow other faiths. R Basic necessities: 32 would use potentially unsafe sanitation services; 15 would not have electricity; 13 would reside in slums and informal settlements; and 11 would be undernourished, including one dying of starvation (even though 30 would be considered overweight). R Education: Of the 75 teens and adults age 15 and older, 10 would not be able to read and write. Of the 61 adults age 25 and over, only six of them would have completed college. R A majority wouldn?t be online: 52 would not be Internet users for various possible reasons, including lack of access, skills, and interest. R Cellphone service: 32 would not have cellular service (even though cellphone subscriptions would outnumber people 103 to 100). R The future: There would soon be more than 100 people. Although you can expect one person will die in the next year, in that same time, you can expect two babies would be born.

(Associated Press) KEITH BEDFORD/GLOBE STAFF Getting a bead on the flu bug T By Sophia Eppolito GLOBE CORRESPONDENT o advance the science of forecasting infectious diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been hosting a competition in which researchers use social media, as well as data from CDC?s routine flu surveillance systems, to predict the timing, peak, and intensity of the flu season. For this flu season?s competition, University of Massachusetts Amherst biostatistician Nicholas Reich joined forces with Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, and a group at Los Alamos National Laboratory in a group they named the FluSight Network. ?What makes the flu hard to predict is that there are not a lot of early indications about how the season is going to go,? Reich said. ?We?re still trying to figure out what those early indicators are of a bad season.? A current assessment of the flu, and an ability to look to the future, can be invaluable for the CDC, Reich said. ?Being able to anticipate those events gives them a head start on putting into place the risk-communication efforts to encourage people to get the vaccine, perhaps earlier than usual,? he said. Each of the member groups in the FluSight Network has competed individually before this year. Reich estimated that the team has a combined 10 years of forecasting experience. The group?s strategy is to submit a single model to the CDC that combines all of their models together, Reich said. To create these models, the network studies climate data as well as recent digital trends from Twitter, Google, and Wikipedia. He said researchers primarily focus on those specific sites to look for trends in searches on flu-related terms. ?We saw this as this great opportunity to work together and have the best pieces of our best models all attribute to one forecast,? he said. ?It?s sort of like a symphony. Any one of these models is playing their own instrument, but they work better together and they sound better together.? About 20 teams are participating in the CDC?s challenge this year. The nationwide competition began in early November and is expected to end some time in April. The teams measure flu trends weekly by attempting to predict the percentage of doctor?s office visits linked to flu-like illness. Each week, they send their updated forecasts to the CDC before they?re then posted online at predict.phiresearchlab.org. Reich said it has been an abnormally early flu season but points out that it?s a little too early to predict its severity in New England. But, he added, his group?s model has predicted a 50 percent chance that the season will peak before mid-January. ?Based on what we are seeing in New England so far this year, there is a small signal suggesting this season will peak earlier than usual, although we still have a fair amount of uncertainty about exactly when the peak of flu season will be,? he said.

BOSTO N Water main break closes, freezes streets A major water main break flooded Huntington Avenue and forced the closure of several streets before it was repaired late Monday night, officials said. All roads should be open for the morning commute, said Sean Navin, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. A broken valve caused the pipe to burst at 7:49 p.m. Water shot into the frigid air, causing roads to freeze. The valve was shut off shortly before 11 p.m., and there was no interruption in water service, he said. The break forced the closure of Huntington, River Road, the Riverway in Boston, and Washington Street in Brookline. Crews from the Boston Fire Department and the Water and Sewer Commission assisted at the scene. The state sent heavy equipment, including sanders, to treat the frozen roadways.

The annual ceremony in Somerville was set for Monday but has been postponed to March 4. The festivities commemorate the raising of the ??Grand Union Flag?? atop Prospect Hill on New Year?s Day in 1776. This year?s event was to include a procession led by a reenactor portraying George Washington, then a ceremony at Prospect Hill Park. The hill was a key fortification for the Continental Army in its siege of Boston during the American Revolution. The flag, also known as the ??Continental Colors,?? featured 13 red and white stripes and a British ??Union Jack?? flag in the corner where the 50 stars are now on today?s flag.

No arrests had been made as of Monday afternoon and officials had not confirmed the victim?s identity, she said. Officials did not know the motive of the shooting, Kimball-Monahan said. R EVACUATION A three-story Gardner apartment building was evacuated Monday morning due to a boiler malfunction, which was spreading carbon monoxide throughout the residence, Gardner police said. Lieutenant Craig Osowski said the problem was under control. Some people were treated on the scene, but there were no serious injuries and no one was taken to a hospital, Osowski said. The 377 Elm St. building contains about 30 apartment units. R COLD PUP A man who left his puppy shivering in a car for an hour is being charged with animal cruelty, according to the Dartmouth Police Department. Police received a call at 5:30 p.m. Saturday reporting an unattended dog inside a vehicle in the Dartmouth Mall parking lot. The caller told police that the puppy had been left in the vehicle for at least 20 minutes without heat. Police later determined it had been there for closer to an hour. The unidentified owner was being charged with animal cruelty, but Dartmouth police said they will not release his name until arraignment. A responding officer documented that the puppy was shivering and rolled up in a ball on one of the car seats. Dartmouth Animal Control took the dog to a veterinary hospital. R SHOOTING PROBE Dean A. Tupper, a former employee of Stonehill College in Easton, was arrested Friday and charged in connection with an accidental shooting at the school in October, according to a statement from the Bristol County District Attorney?s office. On Oct. 11, Tupper, 57, allegedly shot his co-worker, Dave Pigeon, in the Plumber?s Shop of Stonehill College?s Clock Farm, which is across the street from Stonehill?s campus, according to the release and police re- ports. According to previous reports from the Globe, Pigeon was sitting at his desk when he ?felt a pain in his right knee? and started bleeding. Tupper initially told the police he was trying to make a homemade bullet when an explosion caused the lead to shoot off, hitting Pigeon as he walked by. Police reported being suspicious of Tupper?s story in early December. Tupper is expected to be arraigned in Taunton District Court on Tuesday on charges of discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, making false statements to the police, improper storage of a firearm, carrying a dangerous weapon on school grounds, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to the release. He was released over the weekend on $1,000 cash bail. R FOUND SAFE An 84-year-old man was found around 3:30 p.m. on Monday after being reported missing in bitterly cold weather.

Fireworks once again heralded the New Year at the strike of midnight over Boston Harbor. A lack of funds forced the cancellation of the midnight fireworks last year, but waterfront businesses and associations paid for the renewal of the traditional celebration. GLOBE STAFF LITTLETON ? A 76-yearold woman died in a house blaze that broke out early Monday morning in Littleton, becoming the first fire fatality in Massachusetts in 2018, authorities said. ?Sadly, I am confirming that one adult has died in a fire in a single-family home at 315 King St. in Littleton,? said Jennifer Mieth, spokeswoman for State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey. ?One person escaped the fire and was taken to a hospital.? Fire officials said they were told a person was trapped inside when they arrived on the scene. ?We were called at 5:14 this morning for a house fire,? Littleton Fire Chief Scott Wodzinski said. ?We were met outside by the homeowner, who said that his wife was still inside. I can confirm that it is a fatal fire.? The fire occurred in a onestory, two-bedroom, circa1750 antique-style clapboard home, near a gentle bend on Route 2A overlooking a frozen brook and the town?s Congregational Church. From the front, a window framing the d o o r w a s a s k e w, a n d t h e snow-covered roof was partly ripped open. Most of the damage appeared to be in the back and side of the house. The cold weather also had an effect on the fire department?s response, Wodzinski said, adding that the trucks, equipment, and water began freezing. ?It played a role for us but not really for the fire,? he said. A few state and local fire vehicles remained on scene later Monday, and some heavily bundled firefighters were spreading salt from a truck on the icy street as others moved about. About 30-40 firefighters arrived responded to the fire. ?They?re out investigating now,? said Bill Harrold, Littleton Police communication supervisor. ?The husband had called and said his wife was still in the house.? Harrold said there was a ?high accumulation of collectibles,? inside the house. The woman?s body was found inside the home. ?It was difficult moving through the home,? Wodzinski added. ?There was a significant amount of debris collected in the home throughout the years, so it was a little bit of a challenge.? No other injuries were reported. Mieth said the investigation into the origin and cause of the fire is being conducted by the Littleton Fire and Police Departments and State Police assigned to the state fire marshal and to the Middlesex District Attorney?s office.

Workers seek to cut off gas main spouting flames By Evan Allen GLOBE STAFF and Martha Schick GLOBE CORRESPONDENT A spout of fire that burst from a gas main on Hyde Park Avenue in Roslindale on Sunday was still burning late Monday night, with crews working to install a temporary bypass line, according to the Boston Fire Department. The fire in a 10-inch gas main began shortly after 6 p.m. near 340 Hyde Park Ave., about a mile south of the Forest Hills MBTA station. Fire crews tried to use sand to smother the flames. The Fire Department tweeted on Monday afternoon that the fire would be ?ongoing at least through today? as the crews install a bypass to effectively cut off fuel to the fire. The fire continued to burn past 9 p.m. Monday, and National Grid crews were still trying to install the bypass line, said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Fire Department. Shortly after noon, the work crews were digging two holes in the street where the temporary line would be connected, according to Fire Department?s tweets. Crews from National Grid ?know how best to deal with this in the safe manner,? said MacDonald, ?but it?s in consultation with all the city officials here.? MacDonald said National Grid did not shut off the gas Sunday night because of the extreme cold. ?We? ll try not to shut the gas off, because that will affect hundreds of households, if not thousands,? MacDonald said. Once the bypass line is installed, and the fire extinguished, National Grid crews would still need to dig up the original pipe to repair or replace it, MacDonald said. The extreme cold hampered repair efforts, he added. ?The weather certainly isn?t helping,? MacDonald said. ?[Crews] are out in full force, [trying to install the pipe],? he said. National Grid did not immediately return a request for comment Monday night. Earlier in the day, flames were still shooting into the air from the street, half the height of the surrounding trees. Sidewalks were covered with sheets of ice from where firefighters had sprayed water. ?I heard they had it under control, but gas is very dangerous,? said Helen Loney, who Cold snap prompts T to warn commuters to add travel time By Dylan McGuinness GLOBE CORRESPONDENT The MBTA is advising commuters to add 20 minutes of travel time in the morning, in anticipation of frigid temperatures affecting bus and rail services this week, officials said. The Hingham commuter ferry to Boston has been suspended indefinitely due to ice damage on a dock and extreme tides, the agency announced Monday night. ?For us, our first priority is to run a safe system for all the riders and the employees that are operating them,? MBTA General Manager Luis Ramirez said Monday evening in a conference call. The agency will be doing e ver ything it can to maintain normal service, Ramirez said, but noted that ?given the last few days and the experiences we?re seeing across the region, we think it?s prudent to prepare? for possible delays. Shuttle buses will take passengers from the Hingham ferry terminal to the commuter rail station in West Hingham, which will accept their boat passes, said Joe Pesaturo, an MBTA spokesman. The agency will take several steps to try to maintain train service, Ramirez said. Trains will be stored in tunnels and maintenance facilities during morning hours to avoid hazards from freezing, and those that can?t fit will run on rail yards, he said. Operators will open and close train doors and test brakes, and the heaters for track switches will be tested throughout the day. Extra maintenance staff will stand by at ?strategic locations? to address any issues that arise. Additional crews will also be on call at the end of lines, where trains are swapped out, deputy general manager Jeff Gonneville said. Cold weather can affect a train?s air system, which controls braking, the doors, and more, and can create difficulties for the rails as well. Moisture within those systems can freeze, which causes the vehicles to malfunction, officials said last week.

Still, after the teen emerged from the tides, she said she had no regrets. ?I can?t feel my feet, but [I feel] great!? she said. Her proud mother, Jenny Farr, said, ?It?s pretty fantastic, and hey, great thing to put on your college rщsumщ.? She said it was one of many challenges Ariana plans to tackle, including the Boston Marathon and Mount Everest. Barry Jennings of South Boston, dove in with his wife, son, and daughter, a tradition their family has observed for 20 years, he said. ?Every year it gets colder,? Jennings said. ?And I?m getting older, which makes it colder.? The temperature in the water Monday morning was 44 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Many swimmers said they felt colder after getting out of the water than while they were in it. Jennings?s son Conor, 26, said he?d been going in since he was 6 or 7, though he has missed some years. Steve Sheerin, 52, of Bolton, went into the water carrying his childhood friend, Erik Kondo, also 52, of Lexington. Kondo sustained a spinal cord injury in a motorcycle accident at 19, he said, and uses a wheelchair. Kondo came up with the idea to participate about nine years ago, he said, and every year he and Sheerin come with a group of buddies. ?This is a tradition,? Kondo said. ?It?s a good way to start off the year.? Sheerin joked that he asks Kondo every year if they can skip the frigid dive. ?I keep trying to get out of it, but he won?t let me,? Sheerin said. ?I wouldn?t be here if he didn?t guilt me into it.? Dan Monahan, interim director of the Curley Community Center, where the plunge takes place, estimated that last year about 1,600 people attended, and about 500 jumped in the harbor. This year, he said, only 800 or 900 turned up, and maybe 250 went into the water. Other plunges up and down the coast were canceled because of the extreme cold that has gripped the region since last Tuesday, but the Brownies ? who say their New Year?s swim is the country?s oldest ? have never canceled in more than 100 years, Monahan said. Out on the beach, Ernie Moreau, 52, of Framingham, yelled, ?It?s off my bucket list! I?m never going in again.? Moreau swam two years ago, he said, but on Monday he was there to cheer on fellow supporters of Spectrum for Hope, which provides support to families with two or more children who have special needs. It?s one of many charities that use the swim to help raise money. ?I dove in, and I popped up like 20 yards offshore,? Moreau recalled of his 2016 plunge. ?I didn?t know how far out I went, so I was swimming back, I?m like, ?Oh my God, I?m not going to make it. This is awful.? I was not so smart.? Bob Murphy, 59, of Holliston, who was also supporting Spectrum for Hope, emerged dripping and shivering. ?It?s a very good cause,? he said. ?Last year we raised over $8,500 for them. We?re going to try to match or beat that this year.? Monday was the first trip into the icy water for Christy Lea, 50, of Dracut, who dressed as Batwoman. But it was the 10th wintry swim for her fiancщ, Mike Breidenbach, also of Dracut, who was celebrating his 52nd birthday Monday and had dressed as Superman. Breidenbach said it was ?a good way to start off the year. . . . If you can do this, you can do anything.? Lea said experiencing the chill with Breidenbach was symbolic. ?If he?s willing to take the plunge and marry me, I?m willing to take the plunge with him and be by his side on this,? she said. Breidenbach?s 9-year-old daughter, Lily, said she had tried to dissuade her father. ?I said, ?It?s too cold. I don?t want you to go out because then you?re going to get frostbite,? ? she said. ?He didn?t listen.? Jeremy C. Fox can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

T U E S D A Y, JA N U A R Y 2 , 2 0 1 8 T h e B o s t o n G l o b e Metro B5 Framingham, a new city, elects its first mayor uFRAMINGHAM Continued from Page B1 November, after decades of debate and a razor-thin majority last April endorsed a charter change. That called for replacing the New England hallmarks of Town Meeting and Board of Selectmen with a mayor and City Council. For many, that contest had less to do with how they saw Framingham ? a place of both suburban subdivisions and large apartment complexes, where an agric ultural and manufacturing past gave way to robust highway development but also a fatigued downtown, and where the population has grown steadily more diverse ? than with simply which government type they preferred. Some saw the new system as essential for modernizing a place that recently surpassed 70,000 residents, too large and complex to be a town. Others worried that it would abolish the democratic spirit of representative Town Meeting, where people can bring potential legislation to the floor with just a few signatures. Spicer, who holds a doctorate in education, spoke Monday to both camps, promising openness and collaboration ?as the first mayor ? the first people?s mayor ? of the city of Framingham.? But she did not lose sight of the symbolic power of her vict o r y. Ne i t h e r d i d a j o y o u s crowd that easily exceeded 500, which rose to give Spicer a long standing ovation. Some see Spicer?s election as a point of pride for a diverse community. Framingham?s 8,609-student public school district is 27 percent Hispanic, 7 percent African-American, and 5 percent Asian, according to state data. ?The cornerstone of Framingham is its people ? diverse culturally, ethnically, and socioeconomically,? Spicer said, recalling how President Bill Clinton visited Framingham in 1994, praising it as a place ?that really looks like America.? ?From our first English settlers to the wave of Italian, Irish, Eastern European, Portuguese, Latino, and now our Brazilian community . . . . the fabric of Framingham has been strongly woven with the thread of diversity,? said Spicer, who thanked the voters of ?our amazing new city? in Portuguese, Spanish, and Mandarin as well as English, with a signlanguage interpreter by her side. She said her own family ?looks like Framingham. We are African-American, Caucasian, Latino, Asian, Native American, Christian, Muslim, millennials, and older adults.? She imagined her own ancestors ?smiling upon me today,? PHOTOS BY JOSH REYNOLDS FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE Yvonne M. Spicer left the Monday ceremony after she was sworn in as the first mayor of Framingham, which voted to change from a town form of government last year. During her address, she said: ?The cornerstone of Framingham is its people ? diverse culturally, ethnically, and socioeconomically.? At left, US Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts held the Bible as Spicer was sworn in. especially her late parents, Bill and Dot Spicer, gesturing over each shoulder and speaking with palpable emotion. Themes of family and diversity permeated the day, from the opening greeting in five languages by outgoing Town Manager Robert Halpin to an address by Dennis Giombetti, chairman of Framingham?s new 11-member City Council. Giombetti noted that the riser on the stage at Framingham?s Memorial Building ? dotted with local, state, and federal officials and dignitaries ? included new councilors Margareth Basilio Shepard, a Brazilian-American woman, and Edgardo Torres, who has Puerto Rican heritage. ?What an absolutely glorious day for our city,? said Giombetti. And he imagined his late father ? a son of Italian immigrants, and a municipal employee who started as a janitor in this very building ? looking down with pride on the proceedings. Spicer only briefly dipped into a life story that many voters knew, ?as an African-American woman [who] came to Framingham with a promise of a job and a hope of building a life.? That was in 1985, when the Brooklyn native ? who had sometimes helped her mother clean houses on the Upper East Side, and heeded her emphasis on education ? listened to her mother and relocated to Framingham for a teaching job. ?Framingham opened its arms to me,? the new mayor said.

Fenway doctor accused of harassment leaves 2 more posts uMAKADON Continued from Page B1 ly initiated sex at his home. The new allegations suggest that Makadon?s alleged sexual misconduct predates complaints against him starting in 2013 at Boston?s Fenway Community Health. The medical center?s chief executive and chairman resigned last month in the wake of the Globe report, which found that an outside law firm hired by Fenway recommended Makadon be fired in 2015. Makadon, in statements provided by his lawyer, said some of the allegations against him are untrue, but he apologized for his behavior in other cases. In some instances, he said, he could not recall the accusers or alleged events. ?I now understand that at times my behavior caused some to feel uncomfortable in my presence. For that, I am truly sorry,?? he said in the statement. ?I have worked hard during my career to advance the care of patients with HIV and sexual and gender minorities,? Makadon said. ?I have never knowingly used my role to harm those whom I sought to help.? The new accusers came forward reluctantly, in hopes that medical institutions will take greater care to protect students, medical residents, and patients from harassment, all three said. Dr. Armin Fidler said he was 29 and a graduate student at Harvard?s School of Public Health when he met Makadon in 1990. Both men were part of an AIDS committee at Harvard, Fidler as a student representative and Makadon as a wellknown Boston physician to gay men. When Makadon offered to take Fidler to dinner to discuss a work matter, Fidler was honored. ?I was a very poor international student, and to have dinner with a Harvard professor, that seemed like a fantastic opportunity for me,?? he recalled. But he was quickly disappointed ? and shocked ? by how the evening went. Instead of heading to a restaurant, Makadon allegedly drove Fidler to his home in the suburbs, saying he had to pick something up, Fidler said. Once inside, Makadon put on music, went upstairs to change, and returned in a bathrobe, to Fidler?s shock, he said. Fidler insisted they go to dinner as planned, he said. Makadon then allegedly took him to Club Cafe, a gay restaurant in Boston?s South End, where Fidler, who is straight, said he felt uncomfortable. At one point, he said, Makadon put his hand on Fidler?s leg un- der the table. Fidler then demanded to be taken home, he said. ?It was very, very disturbing to me at the time and later on,?? said Fidler, who went on to work at the World Bank, responsible for health strategy, and now teaches. He sought therapy later in life over the incident, he said. Coincidentally, in Novem- ate dean for faculty affairs at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in an e-mail response to a Globe inquiry, said she has not received other complaints about Makadon. She said the school contacted Harvard University and Harvard Medical School about the Fidler complaint. Makadon said he did not recall ever meeting Fidler and ?I now understand that at times my behavior caused some to feel uncomfortable in my presence. For that, I am truly sorry.? DR. HARVEY J. MAKADON In statement provided by his lawyer ber, prior to the Globe?s report on Makadon?s alleged behavior at Fenway Health, Fidler had written to Harvard to complain of ?serious sexual misconduct? by Makadon in 1990. In his email correspondence, a copy of which he provided to the Globe, he asked whether other students had suffered similarly at the hands of a Harvard faculty member. ? T he fac t that I am still thinking about it tells me that the trauma of this experience still lives on,?? Fidler wrote. Mahnaz El-Kouedi, associ- that the allegations were false. Dr. Gary Brissette was one of a group of new doctors under Makadon?s watch at Beth Israel from 1992 through 1994, and counted Makadon as his mentor. He recalled that Makadon sat beside him at a presentation one day, and when the lights were dimmed, Makadon rubbed his leg against his own. After that, Makadon touched Brissette?s leg, he said. ?I never said a thing to him, ever,?? said Brissette, who did not want to do anything to derail his career. He had to con- tinue having regular meetings with Makadon, who never tried to touch him again, Brissette said. Although he never reported the incident to higher-ups, Brissette said, he now recognizes it as something more than just a nuisance amid the rigors of medical training. ?It was definitely an experience that, as a trainee, I should not have had to have dealt with,?? he said. Makadon said he did not recall the incident with Brissette, but he thinks ?very highly of Dr. Brissette and, if my behavior in the past made him feel uncomfortable in any way, I sincerely regret that.? The third man who told the Globe his story was a lawyer in his late 30s working for the state when he was referred to Makadon for routine medical care around 1987. The man said Makadon sat close to him during his first appointment at Beth Israel, tapping the man?s foot with his own. Down the road, Makadon invited the man to lunch at his home, then to watch TV ? in his bedroom. ?It was bizarre. I was vulnerable,?? said the man, who asked not to be named for his family?s privacy. ?There were so many red flags.? Makadon initiated sex, the man said, and he went along with it. Because Makadon was a revered physician in the gay community, the man continued doctor visits with him at Beth Israel until 1995. Makadon did not deny the man?s account, but said there was no doctor-patient relationship with him at the time, an explanation the man said is untrue. ?It was always my practice never to engage in any kind of intimate relationship with anyone who was actively under my care and I did not do so? in this case, he said. Dr. Beverly Woo, a longtime colleague of Makadon?s who taught with him at Harvard, said former residents and people who have worked closely with Makadon have been surprised by the allegations against him. ?They have been extremely positive about working with him. Never has anything been raised about ethical issues,?? she said. The state Board of Registration in Medicine lists Makadon?s license as ?active,? but notes that he is not currently practicing. He has no record of discipline with health care facilities. Beth Healy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter @HealyBeth.

Ask your funeral director for details. 92, of Waterville, passed away unexpectedly at her residence on December 29, 2017. She was born in Natick, MA on February 20, 1925, daughter of John A. and Rose J. (Homsy) Haddad. Jamila was educated in Natick schools, graduating from Natick High School in 1942. As a young girl growing up with her brothers and sisters, Jamila helped on the family farm, especially taking care of their vegetable gardens and many fruit trees. This became her passion and continued throughout her life. She loved to pick her own fruits and vegetables, when in season, and would insist on going to local farms rather than shopping in grocery stores. As a young woman, Jamila worked in her father?s garment factory in Boston, as a fore-lady running the day-to-day operations of the business. Jamila was also very involved in her church, Saint John of Damascus in Boston, MA, where she was a member of the Syrian Orthodox Youth Organization (SOYO). She played the lead in many Arabic musicals in her church, and could recite some of her verses until the present day. She met her husband Dr. Elias Richard Nawfel in Boston, and married in 1957. They later moved and settled in Waterville, ME, and raised their family. Jamila worked as the office manager in her husband?s dental practice for 25 years. One of the most important aspects of her life was maintaining her Arabic heritage with her family. She demonstrated this through cooking many traditional dishes, as well as baking many Arabic sweets up until the present. She loved the Arabic language and passed on this love to future generations by insisting on maintaining these traditions. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, her abundant energy, and her beautiful smile. This radiant personality allowed her to easily interact with any generation, especially older, non-native family members. Jamila was predeceased by her husband, Dr. Elias Richard Nawfel, her parents, her siblings George J. and his wife Rachel Haddad, Lillian and her husband Antoon Khouri, Russell J. Haddad, and Gloria and her husband Frederick Matook. Jamila is survived by three loving children; RoseMarie (Nawfel) Stamboulides and her husband Nico of Ashland, MA; Richard D. Nawfel of Waltham, MA; and Elias J Nawfel and his wife Eleni of Waterville, ME; her two brothers, Mitchell J. Haddad and his wife Marion of Natick, MA; Alfred J. Haddad and his wife Marjorie of Arlington, MA; and a sister-in-law Arlene Haddad of Natick, MA. She is also survived by her four grandchildren, Elias G. Nawfel, John C. Nawfel, Christopher C.B. Nawfel, and Maria E. Nawfel; as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Dan Talbot, at 91; impresario of art films By Anita Gates NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK ? Dan Talbot, one of the most influential figures in the world of art-house film as an operator of Manhattan theaters ? including Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, which is scheduled to close Jan. 28 ? and a founder of the film distribution company New Yorker Films, died Friday at his home in New York. He was 91. His death was confirmed by Ewnetu Admassu, the general manager of Lincoln Plaza. Manohla Dargis, cochief film critic for The New York Times, summed up Mr. Talbot?s impact in a 2011 interview with him at the Cannes Film Festival, where in his 80s he continued to see four to six films a day. She described his theaters as places where ?generations of moviegoers have had their minds and worlds expanded, and even blown.? Mr. Talbot was always realistic about the narrow appeal of his product. In 1987, interviewed during a Public Theater retrospective, ?The Age of New Yorker Films,? he described his chosen field as ?a very financially masochistic business.? In fact, he told Dargis (and others) what he thought of the term show business: ?It?s not a business. It?s a casino.? And he acknowledged that the audience for art-house films was both small and static. ?It?s an elite, college-educated, well-traveled group, and it?s very determined,? but it isn?t growing, he told The Times in 1981. Mr. Talbot chose to trust his own tastes. ?When I look at movies, I don?t think of the box office,? he said in the same interview. ?If it appeals to my aesthetic sense, if it has some artis tic foundation, I take a chance with it.? And that system worked. He introduced US moviegoers to a whole universe of European filmmaking, including the French New Wave and the postwar German auteurs. One of his greatest successes was Rainer Werner Fassbinder?s ?The Marriage of Maria Braun? (1979), about one German woman?s struggles after World War II, which ran for a full year. Mr. Talbot?s boldest moves included ?Point of Order,? 188 hours of the 1954 McCarthy Senate hearings, edited to 97 minutes; ?Shoah,? Claude Lanzmann?s almost 9╜-hour interview-based documentary about the Holocaust, which aired on PBS after half a year in theaters; and a 1960 release of ?Triumph of the Will,? Leni Riefenstahl?s infamous propaganda documentar y about the 1934 Nazi Party Congress. Daniel Talbot was born on July 21, 1926, in the Bronx. His father, Israel, worked as a textile jobber. His mother, the former Jeanne Frances Charak, owned a fabric and notions shop. After graduating from New York University with a literature degree, Mr. Talbot worked in publishing and film ? as a book editor, as East Coast story editor for Warner Bros., and briefly as film critic for the pacifist magazine The Progressive. After a year living in Spain, putting together a collection of essays titled ?Film: An Anthology? (1959), Mr. Talbot returned to the United States and the opportunity that became the New Yorker Theater. Mr. Talbot and his wife, the former Toby Tolpern, learned that the old Yorktown Theater, on Broadway between 88 th and 89th Street, was available. They renamed the theater the New Yorker and reopened it in March 1960 as a revival house, presenting ?Henry V? with Laurence Olivier and ?The Red Balloon? as their first double feature. By 1962, business was so good that the couple bought the lease. By 1964, Mr. Talbot was being interviewed for The New York Post by a young writer named Nora Ephron, who described his theater as ?a raving success? It all seemed easy. ?The theater had a policy of no policy,? Toby Talbot wrote in ?The New Yorker T he at er an d Oth er Scenes From a Life at the Movies,? her 2009 memoir. ? We t h o u g h t o f i t a s o u r l i v in g room, playing movies we wanted to see.? By the mid-1970s, the couple were devoting themselves full time to distribution, Toby Talbot recalled. New Yorker Films? hundreds of credits included ?Aguirre, the Wrath of G o d ? ( 1 9 7 2 ) , ? Ta m p o p o ? (1985), ?The Boys of St. Vincent? (1992), and ?My Dinner With Andre? (1981). The company ceased operations in 2009 but was later revived under new owners. In the intervening years, other projects had come along. Two more Upper West Side theaters came and went. And the theater that became Dan Talbot?s final legacy began a 37year run across the street from Lincoln Center. Lincoln Plaza Cinemas opened in April 1981 with three screens (later expanding to six). Dan Talbot described it as ?a supplement on a yearround basis to the New York Film Festival.? The first film that played there was Federico Fellini?s ?City of Women.? The theater?s current features include ?Darkest Hour,? a British drama starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill; ?1945,? a black-and-white period drama from Hungary; and ?Loving Vincent,? a Polish-British coproduction about the life of Vincent van Gogh. It was revealed in mid-December that the real estate company Milstein Properties, which operates Lincoln Plaza with the Talbots and Gaumont Films (a French studio), would not be renewing the theater?s lease. In a d d i t i o n t o h i s w i f e , whom he married in 1950, Mr. Talbot leaves three daughters, Nina Talbot, Emily Talbot, and Sarah Tanzer; and four grandchildren. NEW YORK ? William Agee was 38 and a rising corporate star in 1976 when the Bendix Corp., a large auto-parts maker, made him one of the youngest chief executives of a major US company. Handsome and articulate, with an MBA from Harvard, Mr. Agee personified a new, more fast-moving, less bureaucratic management style that was starting to take hold. He got rid of Bendix?s boardroom table as a stodgy artifact of the past, banned executive parking spaces, and often dressed in a style now known as business casual. Three years after he took the reins at Bendix, Time magazine featured him in a cover article with the headline ?Faces of the Future.? He was personally appealing, and so was his message: Success at his company should be based on merit rather than seniority or tradition. He acted on that notion by recruiting and promoting young managers. As it turned out, it was a recruiting decision ? the hiring in spring 1979 of a bright, promising female employee named Mary Cunningham ? and Mr. Agee?s subsequent handling of their relationship that largely defined his business career, touching off a national discussion about workplace behavior that reverberates today. Mr. Agee died on Wednesday at the Swedish Hospital in Seattle. He was 79. His daughter Suzanne Agee said the cause was respiratory failure as a complication of scleroderma, a degenerative disease in which the immune system harms healthy tissue. Mr. Agee originally hired Cunningham, who also had a Harvard MBA, as his executive assistant. She quickly moved up the ranks at Bendix, becoming vice president for strategic planning within 15 months. Soon after that, however, she was forced to leave the company under pressure amid allegations that she and Mr. Agee were having an affair ? something they both denied. They later divorced their spouses, and they married in 1982. Cunningham?s abrupt departure from Bendix provided fodder for months of newspaper and magazine articles and MARIO SURIANI/ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE 1983 Mr. Agee with Mary Cunningham, whom he married in 1982. His relationship with Cunningham, who was hired by Bendix Corp. in 1979, raised questions about his judgment. commentary. Author Gail Sheehy wrote a syndicated newspaper series titled ?The Saga of Mary Cunningham.? In her book ?Powerplay: What Really Happened at Bendix,? written with Fran Schumer and published in 1984, Cunningham denied that she and Mr. Agee had a sexual relationship while they were co-workers. But she admitted to being ?very naive,? and said she had miscalculated the strength of gender stereotypes inside the company. ?It was my very competence that threatened them,? she wrote. Although the episode differed in key respects from the current wave of sex-related office scandals ? the question then centered on romance-fueled favoritism, not harassment or assault ? it helped lay the foundation for the current debate over gender and behavior in the workplace, especially the dynamics involved when one of the people in a relationship is the boss. Peter Cappelli, director of the Center for Human Resources at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, said the drama that swirled around Mr. Agee and Cunningham at Bendix had ?a big effect, especially on boards? at large public companies. In recent years, Cappelli noted, boards have pushed out senior executives at corporations including Best Buy, Boeing and Hewlett-Packard for inappropriate behavior, typically affairs with subordinates. William McReynolds Agee was born on Jan. 5, 1938, in Boise, Idaho. (He later changed his middle name to Joseph.) His father, Harold J. Agee, held various jobs, including manager at a manufacturing company, dairy farmer and state legislator. His mother was the former Suzanne McReynolds. Mr. Agee paid his own way at the University of Idaho while working in a supermarket?s accounting department. After graduating from Harvard Business School, he joined the paper company Boise Cascade, earning a series of promotions and becoming chief financial officer at 31. He joined Bendix, which was based in a Detroit suburb, in 1972 and thrived immediately. He was named chief executive when W. Michael Blumenthal, his predecessor, left the company to become Treasury secretary under President Jimmy Carter. Bendix performed well under Mr. Agee at first, although his relationship with Cunningham raised questions about his judgment. His strength was mainly in finance. Increasing the value of a company?s shares, he wrote in an op-ed essay in The New York Times, is ?the foremost objective of responsible management.? To that end, he pursued asset sales, investments and mergers. But even as a dealmaker, he was occasionally dogged by the public perception of his ties to Cunningham. When Bendix purchased a 5 percent stake in RCA in 1982, RCA rebuffed the move. ?Mr. Agee,? RCA said, ?has not demonstrated the ability to manage his own affairs, let alone someone else?s.? Ultimately, an ill-conceived takeover attempt that year led to Mr. Agee?s departure from Bendix. Seeking new markets, he bid for the rocket-maker Martin Marietta. In what The Times described as ?one of the most bizarre takeover battles in American corporate history,? Martin Marietta responded by trying to take over Bendix. The fight ended with Bendix being bought by Allied Corp., now Allied Signal. Mr. Agee left the merged company in 1983. In addition to Cunningham Agee and his daughter Suzanne, from his first marriage, to Diane Weaver, Mr. Agee is survived by two other children from that marriage, Kathryn Gillis and Robert William Agee; two children from his second marriage, Mary Alana Kurz and William Nolan Agee; two sisters, Carolyn Hjort and Jacqueline Agee; and eight grandchildren. Maura Jacobson, creator of witty crosswords By Neil Genzlinger NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK ? Maura Jacobson, who for 31 years made crossword puzzles for New York magazine that were beloved by aficionados for their pun-filled wit, died on Dec. 25 in White Plains, N.Y. She was 91. Her death was confirmed by her husband, Dr. Jerome Jacobson. Ms. Jacobson owed her career, in a way, to a traffic accident. She had dabbled in puzzle making, sending some to Margaret Farrar, the crossword puzzle editor at The New York Times, but had let the hobby lapse. Then, in 1971, she was seriously injured in an auto accident. It kept her off her feet for a year, she said. ?Margaret Farrar sent me grids and said, ?Stay well and keep working,?? Ms. Jacobson recalled years later. So she began putting more effort into the craft, and by 1978 was making puzzles for a listings magazine called Cue. In 1980, New York bought Cue, and Ms. Jacobson and her puzzles were part of the package. In a 2011 article commemorating her retirement, the magazine said she had created more than 1,400 puzzles for New York. In the universe of cruciverbalists ? people good at making or solving crosswords ? Ms. Jacobson was a super- star. When her name would be announced at the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, the hall would burst into applause. Maura Bandler was born on April 28, 1926, in Brooklyn. Her father, William, was a salesman, and her mother, the former Nettie Duberstein, was a homemaker. She graduated from Hunter College when she was 19, with a degree in English, and became a kindergarten teacher in the Bronx. She married Jerome Jacobson in 1948. In 1964, Ms. Jacobson was among the first contestants ever on a new quiz show, ?Jeopardy!,? winning three times and taking home $3,150, according to New York magazine. But her mastery of trivia would really pay off when she turned her attention to puzzle making. It happened one day when she was sick in bed. ?I decided to try to make up a puzzle,? she said. ?I started with my husband?s name. And I sent it to The Times. It was a terrible puzzle ? I had made up words, I did all sorts of things you didn?t do.? But Farrar sent it back with some encouraging words and suggested changes, and accepted a revised version. A few years later came the car accident and more time to devote to puzzle making. Eventually, Share a special memory Add a cherished memory or condolence to the online guestbook at boston.com/obituaries. the pastime turned into a career. Ms. Jacobson?s puzzles were dense with thematic clues and full of intricate puns, but she was not the kind of diabolical cruciverbalist whose goal is to make the puzzle unsolvable. She said she would generally make the clues for the upper left of the grid, where most solvers start a puzzle, unintimidating, so as not to discourage people. And she took care not to have two unfamiliar words cross each other, so a solver could figure out a strange word by default. She didn? t mind if those tackling her puzzles turned to dictionaries and other resources; for her, it was all about filling in the grid by whatever means necessary. ?There?s no such thing as cheating,? she said at a crossword event in 1996. Not that a dictionary would be much help cracking her witty thematic clues. Take, for instance, the puzzle she provided for the 2008 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. It was sprinkled with phrases the cartoon character Elmer Fudd might have uttered. The answer for a clue for parakeet noise in the Netherlands was ?Dutch tweet.? In addition to her husband, Ms. Jacobson leaves a daughter, Joanne Pye, two grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Along with her puzzles for New York, Ms. Jacobson had 66 puzzles in The New York Times over the years. She also wrote more than two-dozen crossword books. In a 1988 interview, she said it took her about 25 hours to construct a puzzle. ?Sometimes you get to the point where you have a great corner, everything crossing nicely, and you find there?s no such word,? she said. ?Then you have to start over. I go through more erasers than pencils.? How many of each she went through making the doozy she created for the 1983 United States Open Crossword Puzzle Championship is unknown. The puzzle, though, was dizzying. Its theme was storytelling. Here is how The Times described it: ?That puzzle?s central pun, which drew raves from many contestants, took up three full ?across? lines. The clue was: ?Coretta, Steve, Nick, Robert E., Thomas, Toni, Susan B., Joe, Blanche, Gladys.? ?The answer was ?King, Forrest, Lowe, Lee, Mann, Tennille, Anthony, Namath, Thebom, Knight.? If the names are read quickly, the line sounds like: ?King forced lowly man to kneel, and then he named the bum knight.??

President Trump campaigned on a promise to lift up working-class Americans. But so far, businesses have been reaping most of the rewards, ending 2017 with a big win in the form of a major corporate tax cut and a number of rolled-back regulations. And as workers contemplate changes in their wages and workplace protections, or a lack thereof, many of them will be asking themselves: Has my quality of life improved since President Trump and the Republicans took over? If the answer is no, it could fuel a political backlash. MATTHEW MEAD/ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE 2015 In Massachusetts, a little extra kick in the cider, alcohol-wise, brings a hefty increase in the excise tax that?s levied. A taxing time for cider Distributors of the fermented kind say the state treats them unfairly By Dan Adams W GLOBE STAFF hen the weather gets cold, Downe as t Cider House in East Boston releases a winter brew that ?s a little heavier, spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, and has an ?extra kick? in the form of a 6.5 percent alcohol level ? just slightly more than the company?s crisp original cider, which clocks in at 5.1 percent. But when it comes to taxes, the difference between the two drinks is huge: Distributors pay 3 cents for every gallon of Downeast Cider?s original blend, but 70 cents a gallon for the Winter Blend. The difference? An arcane Massachusetts law that classifies any drink made of fermented fruit with more than 6 percent alcohol as sparkling wine, a category that?s subject to much higher taxes than cider with 3 to 6 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). ?I can?t see any practical justification for these laws,? said Downeast cofounder Ross Brockman. Last week, a task force appointed by state Treasurer Deborah Goldberg to suggest reforms to the state?s decade-old alcohol rules agreed with Brockman. Among dozens of proposals the group released in Cider rules A slight difference in alcohol levels makes a huge difference in taxes for Downeast Cider House?s products: Original Blend Alcohol level: 5.1 percent Excise tax: 3 cents a gallon Winter Blend Alcohol level: 6.5 percent Excise tax: 70 cents a gallon SOURCES: Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Downeast Cider House late December is one that would expand the definition of hard cider to include those containing up to 8.5 percent alcohol. The change, which needs legislative approval to take effect, would bring Massachusetts in line with the federal government?s classification of cider. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau in January raised the federal ABV limit on ciders to 8.5 percent. As in Massachusetts, going above the federal limit triggers a much higher tax charged to champagne and similar drinks. Other states have also debated simplifying their complex alcohol tax categories. In Pennsylvania, policy makers in 2016 raised the state?s limit on alcohol in cider to 8.5 percent, after cider makers complained the previous threshold of 5.5 percent was forcing them to dilute their products. The task force in Massachusetts, comprised of seven attorneys and state officials, is also recommending a broad increase in alcohol excise taxes: to 16 cents a gallon on beer, from 11 cents; to 82 cents a gallon on wine, from 55 cents; and to $6.07 a gallon on hard liquor, from $4.05.

Bold Types A prediction: RxAdvance will be one of our big names John Sculley (right) foresees a time when RxAdvance, a pharmacy benefit manager in Southborough, becomes a flagship company for the Boston area?s high-tech economy. A bold prediction? Sure. But Sculley knows a thing or two about tech pioneers. Sculley is perhaps best known for his time as chief executive at Apple. Now he is chairman and chief marketing officer at RxAdvance, which he sees as his most interesting career opportunity since he left the California computer company in 1993. RxAdvance, which is primarily owned by founder and CEO Ravi Ika and a dozen other entrepreneurs, wrapped up 2017 with about $500 million in contracted revenue and is ?crossing over? into profitability, Sculley says. The company is estimating that it will hit at least $10 billion in revenue by 2020. Ika says RxAdvance expects to employ at least 600 people in 2018, primarily in Southborough, and he?s confident that number will rise to at least 1,600 by the end of 2020. Traditional pharmacy benefit manag- ers, or PBMs, negotiate lower rates for drugs. RxAdvance says it?s more effective because it uses computing power to manage expenses, helping health insurance companies rein in costs. ?I am the kind of person who loves to be involved in transformative moments,? Sculley says. ?This is one of those things we used to say at Apple, ?There has to be a better way.? This is one of those opportunities on a huge scale where there is a better way.? Sculley says he started working with RxAdvance after he spoke at St. Mark?s School in Southborough, his alma mater, more than two years ago. Ika?s daughter was a senior there at the time and asked him for his business card. Sculley lives in Florida now, so he generally works remotely, but he visits Massachusetts at least several times a month. He says he is optimistic that Boston?s tech economy can flourish, in part by relying on its strengths in health care and higher education, putting it on par with Silicon Valley. BOLD TYPES, Page B11 RICHARD VOGEL/ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE 2017 Union workers and minimum wage activists rallied on Labor Day in Los Angeles and other cities. F. Vincent Vernuccio, senior fellow at the right-leaning Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan, said that the recent tax overhaul, which will reduce taxes for many people, should put voters in a good mood. ?When workers across the country see that in their paychecks, obviously they?re going to be grateful that they can keep more of their hard-earned money,? Vernuccio said. Workers also benefit from business-friendly policies that allow the economy to flourish, he said: ?Policies that give employers more freedom to run their business and create jobs will undoubtedly help employees.? But the November 2017 elections indicate that more liberal candidates could be gaining the upper hand, said Paul Sonn, general counsel at the National Employment Law Project, a New York advocacy group for low-wage workers, noting that gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey were both won by Democrats who campaigned on a $15 minimum wage. ?The  election will show contrasting economic visions in many states, between a pro-worker populist agenda on the one hand versus a deregulatory Trump-style platform on the other,? Sonn said. ?Trump ran on delivering a real difference to the lives of workingclass voters, especially in the Midwest, and instead he?s delivered attacks on health care and a tax cut for corporations and the wealthy. The big question is, will the voters notice?? With this in mind, here are five labor issues that could have an impact on the 2018 midterm elections: Wages CHRIS MORRIS FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE A handful of companies already have announced bonuses and minimum-wage increases as a result of lower tax rates included in the recent tax overhaul. But it remains to be seen how widespread the generosity will be. Wages have been flat for years; in Massachusetts, average pay is expected to rise only 2.66 percent this year, slightly less than it rose in 2017, according to a survey by Associated Industries of Massachusetts. Massachusetts is one of a number of states considering raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour (California and New York have already approved this rate). If the Legislature doesn?t act, the issue will be put before voters in the fall. LABOR, Page B11 T h e T U E S D A Y, JA N U A R Y 2 , 2 0 1 8 B o s t o n G l o b e TALKING POINTS TAXATION TAX ON MEDICAL DEVICES TO RESUME AFTER 2нYEAR SUSPENSION Much of corporate America will enjoy a tax cut this year, but one industry is getting a tax increase. A 2.3 percent excise tax on medical device manufacturers went back into effect Monday after a two-year hiatus. It was originally imposed in 2013 to help pay for expanded health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The tax was opposed by the $150-billion-a-year industry. In Congress, it was unpopular not only with Republicans but many Democrats from states like Massachusetts and Minnesota with large numbers of medical device companies. Congress suspended the tax for 2016 and 2017. But various GOP efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the taxes associated with it failed, and the sweeping federal tax overhaul recently signed by President Trump didn?t eliminate the medical device tax, either. Industry groups say the tax will take a $20 billion bite over the next decade. ??What we have seen from past experience is that it comes out of funding for product development, research, and the jobs associated with those things,?? said J.C. Scott, AdvaMed?s head of government affairs. Supporters of the tax say manufacturers overstate the harm suffered while the tax was in effect. They argue expansion of health coverage under the ACA benefited device makers by boosting the potential market for their products. ? ASSOCIATED PRESS CURRENCY Bitcoin is already having a bad year. For the first time since 2015, the cryptocurrency began a new year by tumbling, extending its slide from a record $19,511 reached on Dec. 18. The virtual coin traded at $13,440 as of 3:55 p.m. in New York, down 6.1 percent from Friday, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That?s also a fall from the $14,156 it hit Sunday, according to coinmarketcap.com. Bitcoin got off to a much stronger start last year and then kept that momentum going, creating a global frenzy for cryptocurrencies. It rose 3.6 percent on the first day of 2017, to $998; it ended the year up more than 1,300 percent. That rally drew a growing number of competitors and last month brought bitcoin to Wall Street, in the form of futures contracts. ? BLOOMBERG NEWS BITCOIN STARTS A NEW YEAR BY TUMBLING, FIRST TIME SINCE 2015 CORPORATIONS CHIEF OF COMPASS, UK CATERING GIANT, IS KILLED IN PLANE CRASH COMMODITIES COTTON WAS 2017?S STAR CROP, AND FUNDS HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR 2018 The chief executive of the world?s biggest catering company, which is also one of Britain?s biggest businesses, died Sunday in a plane crash near Sydney. Richard Cousins, CEO of Compass Group, was among six people killed when a seaplane went down off Jerusalem Bay, according to the New South Wales police, who confirmed that Cousins, his two sons, his fiancщe and her daughter, and the pilot all died. The cause of the crash was being investigated. Reuters said a preliminary report was expected within 30 days, but it could take as long as a year to find out what caused the crash. Cousins, 58, led Compass, which employs 550,000-plus people, for more than 11 years. Cousins had been expected to leave Compass at the end of March. His planned successor, Dominic Blakemore, currently chief operating officer for Europe, will take over immediately, Compass said. When Cousins took the helm of the company, it was mired in a corruption scandal, accused of bribing a United Nations official to garner contracts to supply peacekeepers. Settling lawsuits and ending investigations tied to the allegations cost the company 39 million pounds, it said in its 2007 annual report, or about $53 million at current exchange rates. During Cousins? time as chief executive, revenue more than doubled and operating profit increased fourfold. The company?s share price has increased by more than six times since he took over. Last year, The Harvard Business Review named him the 11th-best performing chief executive in the world. ? NEW YORK TIMES The crop commodity with the biggest increase last year? It was cotton ? propelled by the longest winning streak in two decades. And hedge funds are ready for more. Of the nine components tracked by the Bloomberg Agriculture Subindex, only cotton and wheat contracts posted gains last year. The fiber lead the way, with an 11 percent advance as demand grew for US exports. Prices capped 2017 with 10 straight weekly gains, the best streak since 1998. Cotton was one of the few crops that hedge funds got more positive on last year. Cotton?s stellar performance came as crop woes in Pakistan and India raised the prospects for American shipments. In the 20172018 season, commitments for US cotton exports are running 29 percent higher than a year earlier, government data show. While both varieties of winter wheat posted gains in 2017, they were small, less than 5 percent. The other members of the Bloomberg subindex ? corn, soybeans, soybean meal, soybean oil, sugar, and coffee ? finished the year with losses. ? BLOOMBERG NEWS Business B11 Antivirus software turned into tool for cyber spying Questions raised about Kaspersky By Nicole Perlroth NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK ? It has been a secret, long known to intelligence agencies but rarely to consumers, that security software can be a powerful spy tool. Security software runs closest to the bare metal of a computer, with privileged access to nearly every program, application, Web browser, e-mail and file. There is good reason for this: Security products are intended to evaluate everything that touches your machine in search of anything malicious, or even vaguely suspicious. By downloading security software, consumers also run the risk that an untrustworthy antivirus maker ? or hacker or spy with a foothold in its systems ? could abuse that deep access to track customers? every digital movement. ?In the battle against malicious code, antivirus products are a staple,? said Patrick Wardle, chief research officer at Digita Security. Wardle would know. A former hacker at the National Security Agency, Wardle recently succeeded in subverting antivirus software sold by Kaspersky Lab, turning it into a search tool for classified documents. Wa r d l e?s c u r i o s i t y w a s piqued by recent news that Russian spies had used Kaspersky antivirus products to siphon classified documents off the home computer of an NSA developer, and may have played a critical role in broader Russian intelligence gathering. For years, intelligence agencies suspected that Kaspersky Lab?s security products provided a back door for Russian intelligence. A draft of a top-secret report leaked by Edward J. Snowden, the former NSA contractor, described a top-secret NSA effort in 2008 that concluded that Kaspersky?s software collected sensitive information off customers? machines. T he doc uments showed Kaspersky was not the NSA?s only target. Future targets included nearly two dozen other foreign antivirus makers, including Checkpoint in Israel and Avast in the Czech Republic. At the NSA, analysts were banned from using Kaspersky antivirus software because of the risk it would give the Kremlin broad access to their machines and data. But excluding N SA h e a d q u a r t e r s at Fo r t Meade in Maryland, Kaspersky still managed to secure contracts with nearly two dozen US government agencies over the past few years. In September, the Department of Homeland Security ordered all federal agencies to cease using Kaspersky products bec au se o f t h e t h re at t hat Kaspersky?s products could ?provide access to files.? Kaspersky continues to deny that it knew about the scanning for classified US programs or allowed its antivirus products to be used by Russian intelligence. Eugene Kaspersky, the company?s chief executive, has said he would allow the US government to inspect his source code to allay distrust of its antivirus and security products. But Wardle discovered, in reverse-engineering Kaspersky antivirus software, that a simple review of its source code would do nothing to prove its products have not been used as a Russian intelligence-gathering tool. Wardle found that Kaspersky?s antivirus software is incredibly complex. Unlike traditional antivirus software, which uses digital ?signatures? to look for malicious code and patterns of activity, Kaspersky?s signatures are easily updated, can be automatically pushed out to certain clients, and contain code that can be tweaked to do things such as automatically scanning for and siphoning off classified documents. In short, Wardle found, ?Antivirus could be the ultimate espionage spying tool.? The next question was: What happens to these files once they are flagged? Wardle stopped short of hacking into Kaspersky ?s cloud servers, where suspicious files are routinely uploaded. However, he noted that antivirus customers, including Kaspersky?s, agree by default to allow security vendors to send anything from their machine back to vendors? servers for further investigation. There are legitimate reasons for this: By uploading items to Kaspersky?s cloud, security analysts can evaluate whether they pose a threat, and update their signatures as a result. Kaspersky Lab said Wardle?s research did not reflect how the company?s software works. ?It is impossible for Kaspersky Lab to deliver a specific signature or update to only one user in a secret, targeted way because all signatures are always openly available to all our users; and updates are digitally signed, further making it impossible to fake an update,? the company said in a statement. Ex-adviser to R.I. governor joins firm For workers, much remains uBOLD TYPES Continued from Page B10 ?I will predict that RxAdvance is going to be one of the best role models that Boston could ever want to have,? Sculley says. ?It will become very apparent before the end of 2018.? ? JON CHESTO From government to the law office Nixon Peabody has just recruited another prominent government official; this one will work for the Boston-based law firm at its Providence office. David Cruise, a top adviser to Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo for the past three years, will join the 650-lawyer firm, helping clients plan for and respond to government initiatives. The former state senator has held numerous publicsector positions. ?He understands the intersection of business and government and can help our clients navigate complex policy and regulatory issues,? Andrew Glincher, the firm?s CEO, said in an e-mail. Like a number of other law firms, Nixon Peabody has attracted several government leaders over the years. Among them: former state representative Jim Vallee; former federal prosecutor Brian Kelly; and for- mer state rep John Fernandes. Scott Brown, the onetime state senator turned US senator for Massachusetts, was arguably the most well-known former pol to join the firm in recent years. Brown, now US ambassador to New Zealand and Saн moa, worked at Nixon Peabody for about a year, leaving in 2014 before his unsuccessful run for US senator in Ne w Hampshire. ? JON CHESTO A job that honors a family legacy If only Robin Powell Mandjes?s grandmother could see what her granddaughter is up to now. Mandjes says her Mississippi grandmother joined Martin Luther King Jr. and thousands of others in the Selma marches of 1965. She grew up hearing the stories of King?s leadership and activism. Now, Mandjes has the perfect job to honor that legacy. She was just hired to be executive director of MLK Boston, a new group launched by entrepreneur Paul English to build a memorial to King and his wife, Coretta Scott King, in Boston. The two famously met while students in the city. MLK Boston, which is operating out of donated space at the Boston Foundation, faces three important challenges that Mandjes will have a key role in tackling: raising as much as $5 million for the project, picking a location, and selecting the artist who will design it. English, CEO of the Boston travel startup Lola, gave the effort a jump-start, committing at least $1 million of his own money. He remains cochair of the organization, along with the Rev. Liz Walker. City officials are also helping out; the memorial is a priority for Mayor Marty Walsh?s administration. MLK Boston will host a meeting on Jan. 8 at City Hall to gather ideas from the public, and artists are invited to submit initial applications to the city by Feb. 28. Five finalists will get $5,000 stipends to develop their proposals. ?This is an ideal time to put a stake in the ground with respect to who we are as a community,? said Mandjes, who previously worked in real estate. ?The timing could not be more perfect for a project like this. Dr. King?s message transcends what is often a polarized national discourse.? ? JON CHESTO Can?t keep a secret? Tell us.

Under President Obama, the Department of Labor doubled that salary threshold to $47,476, making more than 4 million additional workers eligible to earn extra pay when they work overtime. But before it went into effect, a district court judge in Texas ruled the salary cap invalid. Trump?s labor department is expected to issue a new threshold this year, but the amount is widely anticipated to be lower than $47,476. Meanwhile, Democrats have introduced a bill to restore the overtime salary level to roughly that amount. Public sector unions In February, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case whose outcome could be devastating to organized labor. The plaintiff, Mark Janus, a state worker in Illinois, argues that forcing public employees to pay union dues is unconstitutional. The court heard a similar case in 2016 but deadlocked 4-4 following Justice Ant o n i n S c a l i a ?s d e a t h , a n d Trump?s Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, is expected to be the deciding vote. If the court rules in Janus?s favor, it would free government workers from financing a union they don?t support. It would also mean less money for unions to negotiate and enforce contracts, a change that could hinder workers? ability to bargain for higher wages and better working conditions. Joint employers After Trump appointed two members to the National Labor Relations Board, shifting the balance of power to Republicans, the board in December reversed a 2015 ruling that made companies liable for the actions of their franchisees and subcontractors. Following the recent decision, a lead company can be considered a joint employer only if it has direct control over subcontracted or franchise employees, removing the parent organization from responsibility for labor law violations. Business groups applauded the decision as a victory for entrepreneurs, while worker advocates say it leaves the growing number of temporary and contract workers with fewer protections. Paid family and medical leave The United States is the only developed country without a national paid-leave program, and an overwhelming majority of Republicans and Democrats support giving employees paid time off to care for a newborn or sick family member. A number of proposals are in the works at both the federal and state level, including in Massachusetts, yet there are drastic differences between what the two parties are proposing when it comes to the amount of time off and how it would be implemented.

HBO A white nationalist is pictured in the ?Vice News Tonight? story ?Charlottesville: Race and Terror.? Vice, principled: Get news without talking points One of my resolutions for this year is to find news through sources devoid of emotion. So as much as Tucker?s fed-up little face helps me through my cardio, and Rachel?s furrowed disappointment in all of us eases me to sleep, I really should be getting crucial information from a more black-and-white source. If only I could think of one! In the meantime, I have been enjoying the slight daily serving of passion-neutral news presented by HBO in the form of ?Vice News Tonight? (airing nightly at 6:30 p.m.). It may seem odd to turn to Vice ? the most hedonistic network of them all ? for a nightly news bulletin that doesn?t lean too hard on feelings (or smell like it just smoked a joint), but it actually works. Turns out, the overcool detachment baked into the ethos of sk8er-zine-turned-mutlimil-media-conglomerate makes a suitable substitute for journalistic gravitas. Presented as a minimalist modular slideshow that incrementally ?reads? left to right in a white anchorless void, ?Vice News Tonight? touches briefly on major topics and lily-pads to the next one every few minutes, leaving only enough room to dig into one topic with any (not much) depth. Still, if you have a halfhour and little patience for the typical hand-holding nightly news tuck-in routine, Vice?s zero waste packaging, brisk pacing, and design-driven presentation (complete with unique typographical umami) will leave you feeling caught up without the empty calories of talking points. And, in true Vice form, it will also leave you feeling deeply depressed about the world we live in and asking around to see if your guy from college still deals. Good night and good luck!

NEW Q. I have been dating a guy for about three years, and we broke up in August. I should say that in the beginning of the relationship, he fought for me so hard, despite my wanting to be a single college student. I finally gave in and we started dating. This past September, a month after our breakup, he came back and told me he wanted to work on things ? but then ended it again. On Halloween, he texted me saying he loved me and that he messed up, and we started talking again. We go to different schools (we?re about three hours away from each other). We saw each other over Thanksgiving break and it felt so normal and right. We wanted to work on things, and he told me he loved me. The next day, when I returned to school, he reached out to say he didn?t want anything, but told me it wasn?t anything I did, but rather he needs to work on himself. He is very rude to me in texts now and doesn?t give me much information. Should I give up trying? Or should I show him how much I want this? BREAKS AND BREAKUPS A. Seeing as you wrote this letter just before the start of winter break (sorry for the posting delay), I?m going to assume that you and your ex have already seen each other and rekindled things again ? because you?re home . . . and that?s what you do. If that?s the case, I must advise you to avoid making promises about what will happen next. The two of you continue to assume it has to be all or nothing. Sometimes it?s more honest to say: ?It was great to hang out. Let?s play the rest by ear.? At the end of the day, if you?re really into him, I do think you should give up ? because he doesn?t want a commitment right now. Letting go means no more texts. It also means learning to enjoy school without including him in the narrative. I understand you feel betrayed because he?s the one who wanted to start this relationship, but it?s three years later. He?s allowed to change his mind. MEREDITH HD Housewives/BH HD Stripped (CC) HD TV-14 NEW TV-14 NEW Curse Oak Isl.: New (10:09) Hunting evidence.

Paul Getty, the richest man in the world, wouldn?t ransom his kidnapped grandson. This really happened in 2017: After Ridley Scott had finished this version of the story, the Kevin Spacey sexual-harassment allegations became public, and Christopher Plummer replaced him. You?d never know the difference. Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg costar. (132 min., R) (Mark Feeney) B o s t o n G l o b e YYY╜ Call Me by Your Name A rich, relaxed, novelistic coming-of-age story, set in an overripe Italy in the 1980s. Timothщe Chalamet plays an academic?s son and Armie Hammer a young research assistant with whom he embarks on an affair; no one films light and landscape with more sensuality than director Luca Guadagnino. In English and Italian, with subtitles. (132 min., R) (Ty Burr) YYY Darkest Hour A glib, entertaining biopic of Winston Churchill, set as the great man becomes prime minister against a backdrop of Dunkirk and the Nazi threat. Gary Oldman, under lay- ers of padding and bluster, gives us an old sharpie of a Winston and Joe Wright directs with confidence. With Kristin Scott Thomas and Ben Mendelsohn. (101 min., PG-13) (Ty Burr) YY╜ Ferdinand This adaptation of the classic picture book about a peaceloving bull comes to us from Blue Sky, the outfit behind ?Ice Age,? with John Cena as its star voice. While the movie is susceptible to some pandering, it also takes the story?s charming core elements and gives them a contemporary luster. (106 min., PG) (Tom Russo) YYY I, Tonya The Tonya Harding story, presented as an acrid, tragicomic look at the underside of fame. Margot Robbie plays Harding, the workingclass ice skating champion who fell from grace when her ex-husband (Sebastian Stan) had her rival kneecapped. Allison Janney is fearsome as Harding?s loveless lizard of a mother, and the film?s smarminess is balanced by its smarts. And vice versa. (119 min., R) (Ty Burr) YY╜ Pitch Perfect 3 Life after college is such a drag for a cappella sisterhood the Barden Bellas that Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and pals decide to hit the USO circuit along the Mediterranean for a last hurrah.

Here?s a list of some of the productions based in and around the city, and when we can see them on the big (and small) screen. ?The Burning Woman? Abington, Brockton, and other Massachusetts locations stood in for the small blue-collar Pennsylvania town where this film takes place. The Jake Scott-directed drama ? which doesn?t have a release date yet ? stars Christiн na Hendricks and Aaron Paul. ?City on a Hill? This Showtime pilot, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Afн fleck, was filming around Boston right before the holidays. The series is a fictionalization of the mid-?90s era when local law enforcement helped curtail street violence. ?Castle Rock? Several Massachusetts spots stood in for Stephen King?s fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, in this J.J. Abrams-produced TV series, set to debut on Hulu in 2018. It?s the first scripted television series to film in Massachusetts in 30 years. Scenes were shot in Lancaster, New England Studio in Devens, and the Worcester Mercantile Center. ?Equalizer 2? Haverhill and Chelsea hosted filming for the first ?Equalizer? feature. The Denzel Washington-led sequel filmed in the South End in September. Duxbury?s Powder Point Bridge, which has been featured in such films as ?The Way, Way Back? and ?The Finest Hours,? also hosted a shoot in October. ?I Feel Pretty? Amy Schumer was spotted all over the Boston area this summer while filming this comedy. Locations featured in the shoot included the South End, Chinatown, Dedham, Salisbury Beach, and Lynn. The film takes place in New York. ?Proud Mary? This is one of the Boston film projects we?ll get to see soon; Taraji P. Henson stars as a hit woman in Boston?s organized-crime community.

MORE CELEBRITY NEWS Antiнharassment initiative launched Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Eva Longoria, and Jennifer Aniston are among hundreds of Hollywood women who have formed an anti-harassment coalition called Time?s Up. The initiative (www.timesupnow.com) was launched Monday with an open letter vowing support for women in the entertainment business and beyond, from janitors to healthcare workers. Time?s Up will include a legal defense fund and will advocate for legislation combating workplace harassment. ?The struggle for women to break in, to rise up the ranks and to simply be heard and acknowledged in maledominated workplaces must end; time?s up on this impenetrable monopoly,? the letter says. The group is one answer to the question of how women in Hollywood would respond to cascading allegations that have upended the careers of powerful men in an industry where the prevalence of sexual predation has yielded the minimizing clichщ of the ?casting couch,? and where silence has been a condition of employment. Contributors to the Time?s Up defense fund include Meryl Streep, Tayн lor Swift, J.J. Abrams, and Viola Davis.

I can?t believe we are finally getting married after 20 years! Tune in to #nye on @foxtv to watch us get hitched in just a few!#coldestbridever,? the Emerson grad tweeted a little more than three hours before the anticipated ball drop. Harvey ? who was hosting this year?s New Year?s Eve coverage on Fox along with Menounos ? officially became ordained, ?as of about 48 hours ago courtesy of the Internet,? he joked moments before officiating the brief ceremony. ?We often say that a bride and groom declare their love in front of the whole world, but this time that?s for real,? Harvey said right before the couple engaged in an emotional exchange of vows. ?I was afraid of the big C word ? the commitment word,? Undergaro said as part of his vows. ?Maria, you are a blessing, not just to my life, but an even bigger blessing to the entire world,? Undergaro added to Menounos, who in June had a benign brain tumor removed on her thing that has not happened in at least 37 years, as far back as full box-office data is available.

Overseas, ?The Last Jedi? has taken in an additional $523.3 million and has yet to arrive in China, the world?s secondlargest movie market. Disney also had the No. 2 movie of the year. The live-action remake of ?Beauty and the Beast,? with Emma Watson as the warbling Belle, collected $504 million at domestic theaters. Directed by Bill Condon, ?Beauty and the Beast? took in $759.5 million overseas.

Russo By Adam Himmelsbach ASSOCIATED PRESS GLOBE STAFF Georgia 54 PASADENA, Calif. ? Sony Michel burst through the line for a 27-yard touchdown Oklahoma 48 run to give No. 3 Georgia a 54-48 victory The Celtics closed 2017 with a mostly ho-hum win over the Nets Sunday, but that was just about the only thing that was ho-hum about their year. Now Boston enters 2018 with a 30-10 record, once again atop the Eastern Conference, once again nearing a spring that is rife with hope and possibility. So here are 18 Celtics-related things to be aware of as the new year begins. Monday night against No. 2 Oklahoma, winning the first overtime Rose Bowl and sending the Bulldogs to the College Football Playoff championship game. Michel, who had a fumble in the fourth quarter returned for a go-ahead Oklahoma touchdown, ran for 181 yards and three scores for the Bulldogs (13-1), but none bigger than the last one in the second overtime. ??I made plays. I gave up plays. My team just had faith in me,?? said Michel, who did all that damage on just 11 carries. ??That?s what this team is all about. They showed true character today.?? In the final game of his great career, Oklahoma?s Baker Mayfield threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns, and caught a touchdown pass that gave the Sooners a 17-point lead with six seconds left in the first half. But the Heisman Trophy winner could not get the Sooners into the end zone in the first overtime when a touchROSE BOWL, Page C6 ║Isaiah Thomas will play for the Cavaliers this week ? but not against the Celtics on Wednesday. C2. MATTHEW STOCKMAN/GETTY IMAGES Georgia?s Lorenzo Carter, who blocked a field goal attempt in the second OT, celebrates the Bulldogs? advancement to the title game. 1. Gordon Hayward?s possible return. Hayward suffered a gruesome fracture-dislocation of his left ankle Oct. 17. It was widely believed that he would be out for the season. And, to be clear, that still remains the most likely possibility. But Hayward has made progress, and he said last month that he remains hopeful of returning this year. He no longer uses crutches or a walking boot, and he is again able to shoot baskets while standing up. And with 3╜ CELTICS, Page C2 Going strong At 39, Harrison still has it Ben Volin ON FOOTBALL MADDIE MEYER/GETTY IMAGES James Harrison played 27 snaps in his Patriots debut Sunday, primarily at weakside linebacker and almost exclusively on first and second down. Playoff opponents aren?t well-armed By Stan Grossfeld GLOBE STAFF Bring on the Foxborough fodder. Book the Patriots for their annual AFC Championship game appearance. They?re regulars at the NFL?s Final Four establishment. Armed with home-field advantage, that shouldn?t change this postseason. It should be Saturday night lights out for whatever unlucky team ventures to Gillette Stadium on Jan. 13 for the AFC divi- GASPER, Page C3 ON FOOTBALL, Page C5 Cold comfort for hardy Gillette fans Christopher L. Gasper sional playoffs. There is no jinx that a mere writer can put on the Patriots that will be responsible for their demise prior to the AFC title game, a Foxborough birthright. If the Patriots fail to advance to a seventh straight AFC Championship, it won?t be because of a premature declaration. It will be because a star is born in Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota. It will be because the Buffalo Bills, playoff participants for the first time since 1999, get a playoff miracle of their own this millennium. It will be because Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs have replaced Eli Manning and the New York Giants as the Patriots? Kryptonite. All seem unlikely. The Steelers wanted nothing to do with James Harrison this year, stashing their 39-year-old pass rusher on the bench and refusing to unwrap him. The Patriots signed Harrison to a minimum contract last week, because no other team called him. But after watching just one game of Harrison on Sunday, the Patriots? 26-6 win over the Jets, this much is clear ? he still can play football. And the Patriots suddenly have a formidable linebacker group. The Patriots have been hit with injuries at linebacker this year ? Dont?a Hightower suffered a season-ending pectoral injury in Week 7, Kyle Van Noy has a calf injury that has mostly kept him out of the last five games ? and the Patriots have been forced to piece it together with Elandon Roberts, special teamer Marquis Flowers, and guys off the street such as Eric Lee and Jonathan Freeny. But it?s all starting to come back together. Van Noy returned from a three-game absence to play strongside linebacker. He only played 12 snaps, but now he gets two weeks to prepare for the Patriots? playoff game, and he should be good to go, barring a setback. Van Noy is a big addition to the defense, someone who can maintain the edge in the run game and can cover running backs in the pass game. They had Roberts at middle linebacker, who although he can be a liability in coverage, is still a missile in STAN GROSSFELD/GLOBE STAFF Dan Lavanway of West Lebanon, N.H., heads to his seat after procuring a much-needed hot chocolate in the upper deck at Sunday?s game. FOXBOROUGH ? Way up in the nosebleed seats of Gillette Stadium, the beer is frozen solid. Fans in Section 340 wrapped the free hand warmers the Patriots gave out around their blue aluminum bottles of Bud Light, trying to thaw them out. ?Ice-cold beer? took on new meaning for Eric Fay of Haverhill, who was bundled up like a Siberian survivor but drinking responsibly during Sunday?s Patriots-Jets game. ?This is what they give you for $9 ? a frozen beer? ? said Fay, laughing under a blanket, scarf, and beard. The beer froze when it hit the air, forming mini-ice sculptures like some crazy Mount Washington weather experiment. ?You can?t even drink it,? said Fay. ?I had to put a hand warmer on it and it still don?t unfreeze.? But Fay said going to the game was better than staying home and being a couch potato. ?It?s the last regular-season game of the year and it?s windy, but I?m still enjoying it,?? he said. Paul Emery had a hand warmer pasted on his beer, too. He tried to drink it but said it ?froze sideways.? He called out to his friends. PATRIOTS, Page C4 C2 Sports T h e B o s t o n G l o b e NBA Thomas ready to go ? but not vs. Celtics By Gary Washburn GLOBE STAFF C L E V E L AN D ? Fo r m e r Celtic Isaiah Thomas will finally make his Cavaliers debut in Tuesday?s home game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The bad news for Celtics fans is that Thomas will not play Wednesday when the Cavaliers come to TD Garden because he has yet to be cleared to play in back-to-back games. Thomas has missed Cleveland?s first 36 games as he recovered from a torn hip labru m suffe red in Ma rch when he was with the Celtics. Thomas was traded to Cleveland in August in the Kyrie Irving deal, and Celtics president Danny Ainge said Thomas?s injury was a factor in making the deal. T homas, though, repeatedly said the hip injury wasn?t career-threatening, and he has been working feverishly to return. Thomas practiced Monday and was given clearance to play his first NBA game since May 19, when he was removed from Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals after aggravating the injury. ?It?s been a long process for me, frustrating and tough process , but at the same time you?ve got to trust it,? he said Monday. ?Now that day?s here. I haven?t played in so long. It?s going to be a weird feeling. I?m happy it?s here.? The Cavaliers have brought Thomas on their road trips and he warmed up before recent games, hoping to make his debut this past Saturday at Utah. But the club wanted him to make his debut at home. ?It?s been a process,? said coach Tyronn Lue. ?Overnight [success] is not going to happen. He?s been doing a great job of encouraging guys on the LEGAL NOTICES bench, and now he gets to play. Everybody is excited for him. I?m excited for him.? Thomas will come off the bench Tuesday and will be on a minutes restriction as he works himself into playing shape. Last season, Thomas averaged 28.9 points per game for the Celtics ? second-highest in team history to Larry Bird ? along with 5.9 assists per game and 46.3 percent shooting. He helped lift the Celtics to new heights under coach Brad Stevens, and his presence in Cleveland could relieve some scoring pressure off four-time MVP LeBron James. ?I think a guy who can play with pace, get into the paint, when Bron gets tired or not having a great game, you can put the ball in his hands,? Lue said. ?He can create and make plays. We?re excited about that. ?Just seeing how he can play with pace and ge t into the paint with his speed and quickness and ability to shoot the basketball, it really changes our team.? Thomas said he is healthy but hardly in premium basketball shape because of the long layoff. ?My hip is better, but I have no feel, no rhythm for t he game,? he said. ?I?ve been out for so long, it feels like I lost my powers. When we?re out there scrimmaging, I can move around and do what I want, I just don?t have my powers yet. ?It might take some time, but I?m excited about the opportunity to get out there and compete.?

Here is what to track on Celtics watch in 2018 uCELTICS Continued from Page C1 months left in the regular season, there is still so much time for more progress. Still, there are many boxes to check off, from jogging to sprinting to cutting. The guess here is that Hayward sticks with the original plan and returns fully healthy next year. But the fact that this is even a discussion shows how far he has come. 2. The disabled player exception. After Hayward was injured, the NBA granted the Celtics an $8.4 million disabled player exception. This will allow the Celtics, who are over the salary cap, to sign a player to a oneyear deal for up to $8.4 million, or trade for a player on an expiring contract worth $8.4 million or less. There are other parameters. If Boston does not use the exception by March 10, it will expire. Also, the team can use the exception only on a trade for a single player. If the Celtics do not use the exception prior to the Feb. 8 trade deadline, they would target the buyout market. Even if the Celtics use the exception, though, it does not make Hayward ineligible to return this year. 3. Watch that Lakers pick. Last June, the Celtics traded the rights to the No. 1 overall pick to the 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 pick as well as a future first-round choice. If the Lakers? pick ? which Philadelphia had previously acquired ? ends up in the 2-5 range in this year?s draft, Boston will receive it. Los Angeles is currently 11-24, the second-worst record in the NBA. With a stacked 2018 draft, Celtics fans should keep one eye on their longtime rivals. 4. But don?t totally forget the Nets pick. After drafting Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum with picks they received from the Nets in the 2013 Paul PierceKevin Garnett trade, the Celtics traded the last Brooklyn pick from that deal, the 2018 choice, to the Cavaliers as part of the package to acquire Kyrie Irving. The Nets are 13-23, and the Celtics would not like the Cavaliers to cash in with a high pick, especially since it could entice LeBron James to re-sign in Cleveland. 5. Tatum?s rookie wall? Tatum has been magnificent , spending much of the year as the top 3point shooter in the league. On the court, the adjustment has been easy. But he has often said how the grueling schedule has offered a challenge. So it will be worth monitoring whether he hits a wall. Consider: In the seven games in which the Celtics were playing on no rest, Tatum made just 30.8 percent of his 3-pointers. In the 33 other games, he made 51.8 percent. 6. About that schedule . . . The Celtics have played 40 games, the most in the NBA and six more than the Bucks and Raptors. Boston?s schedule was front-loaded because of the Jan. 11 game against the 76ers in London. That matchup will be bookended by a total of eight days off, and those days had to be made up somewhere. The good news is that the Celtics essentially get two All-Star breaks. 7. But AllнStar weekend will not be a vacation for everyone. The Celtics could be well-represented in Los Angeles in February. Irving is an All-Star lock, and Al Horford seems likely to make the team as a reserve. Tatum will be asked to take part in the Rising Stars game, and Brown could be, too. Tatum and Brown could also be options for the 3-point and slamdunk contests. But the Celtics staff will get a breather, because the NBA does not allow coaches to guide the All-Star team in consecutive seasons. 8. Isaiah Thomas?s multiple reн turns. The Cavaliers said Monday that the former Celtics star, who has been sidelined all season because of his hip injury, will make his debut Tuesday against the Blazers but will not play in Boston Wednesday. That means Thomas will likely make his on-court return in Boston when the Cavs return Feb. 11. But the Celtics would be smart to honor Thomas on Wednesday anyway, because Feb. 11 is already booked. 9. Paul Pierce?s number retirement ceremony. The Truth?s No. 34 will be the 22nd number to be retired by the Celtics. The ceremony will take place about a half-hour after that Feb. 11 game against the Cavs. That event, combined with Thomas?s return and two teams jostling for playoff position, will make it the hottest TD Garden ticket in years. 10. An NBA Finals preview? In the previous two seasons, the Warriors were 0-2 at home against the Celtics, and 75-5 against the rest of the N B A . I n N o v e m b e r, t h e C e l t i c s stormed back from a 17-point deficit against Golden State at TD Garden and grabbed the signature victory of their 16-game winning streak. The rematch in Oakland Jan. 27 will be juicy. 11. Keep an eye on the Raptors. The Raptors have somewhat quietly nudged into contention in the East. Toronto has played six fewer games than the Celtics, but the teams are equal in the loss column. Toronto also has a net rating of 7.6, considerably higher than Boston?s 4.9. The Raptors are 13-1 at home, and no team has played fewer home games, so even though they have had a light schedule, there will be an opportunity for them to make up ground. 12. Is the Celtics? defense elite? It sure seemed to be at the start of the year, although the unit has since taken steps backward. After a dominant 95.6 defensive rating in October, that slipped to 99.6 in November before falling to 104 in December. That dip has coincided with a gradual improvement in offensive numbers, but the Celtics need to steady themselves at the defensive end. 13. Kyrie for MVP? There are so many outstanding candidates this year, from James Harden to James to Giannis Antetokounmpo, that Irving will need to dazzle in the second half to have a real shot. But if the Celtics finish atop the East despite Hayward?s injury, and Irving continues his career-best shooting year, he?ll be in the conversation. 14. Keep an eye on Marcus Morн ris?s knee. Morris has missed 21 games because of knee soreness, but over the past six quarters he has shown how valuable he can be, making 6 of 7 3point attempts and 9 of 13 shots overall, while also showing his defensive versatility guarding players such as Harden. 15. Playoff matchups. The Celtics are all but certain to land one of the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference, and they must be considered favorites to be No. 1. But the bottom half of the conference is congested, and matchups will be important. The Celtics would not want to see a team like the Wizards fall to them in a first-round series. 16. Strength of schedule. Although the Celtics? schedule has been quite busy, it has not been the most difficult. They played the Cavs, Raptors, and Wizards just three times over those first 40 games, but will play a total of eight games against them over the final 42. 17. Earlier trade deadline. The NBA moved the trade deadline up two weeks, to Feb. 8. The Celtics have been in the mix at the deadline the past two years but have come up empty. Their roster does not have as many holes as it once did, but they do have the disabled player exception. If they make a deal, it will likely be a minor one. 18. The Celtics have a blank banner hanging at their facility, as they wait for their 18th title. We?ll leave this No. 18 space blank, too, but mostly because we?re out of material. Happy New Year. Pct.

T?2:31. Offiн cials?Derek Richardson, Ed Malloy, Gary Zielinski T h e T U E S D A Y, JA N U A R Y 2 , 2 0 1 8 B o s t o n Rask is hottest thing on ice Fluto Shinzawa ON HOCKEY There is an easy solution to ease the sufferings of the frostbitten masses: Huddle around Tuukka Rask. The Bruins goalie is hot enough to make anybody within his vicinity peel off the layers. In his last 12 starts, Rask is 101-1 with a 1.43 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage. He has two shutouts within this 12-start segment, including a 25-save laugher Saturday in the Bruins? 5-0 licking of Ottawa. Of the 14 NHL goalies who have made 12 or more starts since Nov. 26, none has a higher save percentage than the skinny Finn ? not the inimitable Carey Price, not Bruins killer Braden Holtby, not even Vezina favorite Sergei Bobrovsky. ?He?s dead-on,? said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. The Bruins closed out 2017 with an 11-3-2 sprint. There were many reasons for that roll, which catapulted them into second place in the Atlantic Division. The primary factor is in goal. There is little need to explain how a puckstopper who allows fewer than 1.5 goals per game can make a difference between wins and losses. The Bruins have a dominant first line, good secondary scoring, and six reliable defensemen. Airtight goaltending can make up for deficiencies in any of those areas. It is probably no coincidence that Rask?s pilot light roared to life after one of the most challenging stretches of his career. Other goalies have not pushed Rask since Tim Thomas made his exit after the 2011-12 season. The Boston net has been marked as Rask?s territory, protected from advances by Niklas Svedberg , Jonas Gustavsson, or even Chad Johnson, who was excellent as the No. 2 in 2013-14. But in November, for the first time since the net belonged to Thomas, Rask sat for four straight games. It was Anton Khudobin?s turn to carry the team ? a well-deserved ple off weeks for Tuukka before you say, ?Hey, we need a wholesale change here.? That?s the way I felt. ? We communicated that with the goalies internally. Goalie Bob talked to them every day about it. Just something we decided to do at the time. ?I think it?s worked out well for both. I don?t think Anton?s lost a lot of his edge. Tuukka has clearly, however you want to summarize it, benefited from being pushed, not playing, or finding his game, whatever you want to call it.? From the perspectives of both goalie and employer, Rask wasn?t far off his game, even if the numbers said otherwise. When Rask was parked in a four-game losing streak, the Bruins were averaging 1.75 goals per outing. One so-so goal allowed by Rask would cave in his team?s prospects of winning. Rask?s teammates had yet to find their current degree of seamless defensive coverage. For whatever reason, Khudobin was better at compensating for the D-zone breakdowns. But while Khudobin was winning, Rask was getting angry. He understood why he wasn?t playing. That didn?t mean he liked it. ?You?d see it a little bit in his demeanor after a few games,? Cassidy said. ?You?d see him get a little more ornery. You could see the passion was there and he wanted the net back.? The net has not been the only locus of competition. The healthy Bruins are bloated at multiple positions. Flashy rookie Anders Bjork will be scratched against the Islanders Tuesday because of Ryan Spooner, who pumped in two goals against Ottawa as the No. 2 right wing. Adam McQuaid has put his health at risk every time he?s pulled on his jersey. But the musclebound defenseman cannot crack the blue line because of the play of his peers. Frank Vatrano, once projected as a top-six wing, is a press box regular. Depth has improved to the point that Matt Beleskey, due $3.8 million annually through 2020, is parked in Providence.

Khudobin was on fire. At a time when the Bruins needed every point, Khudobin delivered 16 of 18, including one in every start, when he went 7-0-2. Rask, on the other hand, did not qualify as a No. 1. Rask started the season 37-2 with a 2.89 GAA and an .897 save percentage. According to Corsica Hockey, Rask?s high-danger save percentage was .771, indicating that he was not taking goals off the scoreboard as aces sometimes do. Yet Cassidy, with input from goaltending coach Bob Essensa, made it clear at the time that Rask was still the organization?s No. 1 netminder. Asked what that meant at the time, Rask said wit h a shrug, ?I don?t know. I guess it?s good to have that confidence from your coach.? Other coaches might not have been so generous. They would have leveled the playing field and not offered as much clarity as to who was the ace and who wasn?t. In retrospect, Cassidy was right to pump Rask?s tires. ?Because, in my estimation, he was,? Cassidy said. ?Sitting down with Anton, he knew what his role was. His job was to push the No. 1 and give us good, strong starts. He did that and more. ?But we just always felt Tuukka was our guy. I think you need a bigger body of work than just a few games or a cou- G l o b e Sports Playoff opponents not well-armed uGASPER Continued from Page C1 The formula to take down Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in the postseason is proven. It requires high-level quarterback play and an indefatigable and unintimidated defense that won?t cower before Brady and is willing to test just how pliable he is ? mentally and physically. If you don?t have a quarterback who can stand up to the mental pressure from Belichick?s schemes and Brady?s brilliance, you have no shot. The three potential opponents have not proven they have that type of steely-eyed signal-caller. (Smith still lacks t h a t e l i t e Q B e l a n .) T h e y shouldn?t feel bad. That type of quarterbacking cachet is in rare supply this postseason. Assessing the playoff invite list, it worked out so favorably for the Patriots that you would think NFL senior vice president of officiating Alberto Riveron was reviewing and setting the playoff field for them. No Baltimore Ravens with Joe Flacco to worry about. No Los Angeles Chargers and Philip Rivers to contend with. Instead, the final two spots belong to Mariota, who threw 15 interceptions and 13 touchdown passes this season, and Tyrod Taylor, who is like the threadbare sock the Bills keep trying to throw out only to have it reappear in the dryer. In the AFC, half the field boasts a quarterback who has never started a playoff game, never mind won one. Jacksonville?s Blake Bortles joins Mariota and Taylor in the postseason christening club. Smith sports a 2-4 career playoff record, but he has won one playoff game in four tries in Kansas City. That victory came two seasons ago against the Houston Texans. His counterpart that day was current Patriots backup Brian Hoyer, who committed five turnovers. If history is a guide, it takes a certain passing pedigree to oust the Patriots. Outside of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, where are those guys in this AFC field? Since the 2006 season, the quarterbacks who have knocked New England out of the playoffs have been good enough to win Super Bowl rings. Eli Manning, Flacco, and Peyton Manning have combined to hand the Patriots seven of their eight playoff losses in that time. The Rex Ryan-sized exception was Off the Mark Sanchez beating the top-seeded Patriots during the 2010 season playoffs at Gillette Stadium, one of the most shocking losses of the Brady-Belichick Era. Yet, Sanchez piloted the Jets to back-to-back AFC title games in 2009 and 2010. Is Smith, known throughout his career as a cerebral and cautious caretaker, not a gunslinger, ready to take the leap to championship-caliber QB? Kansas City certainly didn?t think so before the season when it traded into the top 10 to draft quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Smith has a tidy 12 touchdowns and just two interceptions in his postseason career. In three career games against the Patriots, he has completed 69 percent of his passes and thrown eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. In KC?s season-opening 42-27 victory over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium Sept. 7, the night they unveiled their fifth Super Bowl banner, Smith was surgical, finishing 28 of 35 for 368 yards and 4 touchdowns. But that was when the Patriots were finding themselves ? and beating themselves ? defensively, struggling to cover and communicate in their secondary. And we?re talking about the playoffs now. Both times Smith has beaten the Patriots it has been during the first four games of a season, or as it?s known around here the Extended Preseason. Winning in September and winning at Gillette in January are completely different tasks. The Chiefs are the only team to fear before the AFC championship. They have the NFL?s rushing champion in rookie Kareem Hunt, talented tight end Travis Kelce, and fleet wide receiver Tyreek Hill. But they?ve been as streaky as a road salt-caked windshield. KC won its first five games of the season. Then it dropped six of seven, including four straight. Then KC closed the season with four straight wins. Will the real Chiefs please stand up? The Patriots? good fortune in what Bill Parcells called The Tournament extends to the NFC, if you dare look ahead to Super Bowl LII. (This is anathema to Belichick, who believes myopia isn?t a condition, it?s a virtue.) The odds are ever in the Patriots? favor. The NFC?s top two seeds, Philadelphia and Minnesota, are rolling out Nick Foles and Case Keenum at quarterback. There are three quarterbacks on the NFC side who have reached the Super Bowl. Two of them will face off in the wild-card round as Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. The other is Atlanta?s Matt Ryan, who faces the Los Angeles Rams and playoff neophyte Jared Goff. This is the Matt Ryan who was a co-conspirator in the Patriots? epic comeback in Super Bowl LI, immortalizing ?28-3? in local sports lore. When it comes to dethroning the Patriots, it?s no quality quarterback, no shot. If you come at the NFL?s kings in the playoffs, you best bring a quarterback who doesn?t miss. Christopher L.

Gionta to lead Olympic team FROM WIRE REPORTS Veteran winger Brian Gionta will serve as captain of the US Olympic hockey team at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, which will be the first without NHL players since 1994. USA Hockey announced its roster Monday at the Winter Classic in New York. It includes college players Troy Terry from Denver, Jordan Greenway from Boston University, Will Borgen from St. Cloud State, and Ryan Donato from Harvard. Without the ability to name NHL stars, the US roster is a mix of players from the NCAA ranks, European professional leagues, and the American Hockey League. AHL star Chris Bourque from Boston and a handful of former NHL players now in Europe, including Mark Arcobello, Jim Slater, James Wisniewski, and Bobby Sanguinetti, are expected to help Gionta on the leadership front. The roster also includes Brighton native and Harvard graduate Noah Welch and BU grad Matt Gilroy. The women?s roster includes 10 Olympians, six of whom competed at the 2010 Vancouver Games and 2014 Sochi Games ? Westfield native Kacey Bellamy, captain Meghan Duggan of Danvers, Hilary Knight, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, Monique LamoureuxDavidson, and Gigi Marvin ? and four that made their Olympic debut in Sochi ? Northeastern graduate Kendall Coyne, Brianna Decker, Amanda Kessel, and Lee Stecklein. Boston College has five representatives, including defensemen Cayla Barnes, Kali Flanagan of Burlington, Megan Keller, Emily Pfalzer, and forward Haley Skarupa. Among the final cuts from the team were 2015 Kazmaier winner Alex Carpenter of Reading and BC.

Less than 24 hours after Chuck Pagano (Colts) and Jack Del Rio (Raiders) were fired, two more head coaches were dismissed in Jim Caldwell (Lions) and John Fox (Bears). Cardinals coach Bruce Arians decided to retire. The Lions fired Caldwell after a season in which the team raised hopes before fading and missing the playoffs with a 9-7 record. They also fired offensive line coach Ron Prince, keeping the rest of the assistants under contract in case the next coach wants to retain any of them. Caldwell was 36-28 in four seasons and went 0-2 in the postseason with the Lions. General manager Bob Quinn said that he fired Caldwell, in part, because he thought the team was capable of winning more than nine games in each of the last two seasons. Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin will interview for the job Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the coaching search. The Bears fired Fox after three losing seasons, ending one of the least successful coaching stints in team history. Fox was 14-34 with Chicago, a .292 winning percentage that ranks as the second lowest for the Bears. Chicago has had four consecutive losing seasons ? each with 10 or more losses, including 5-11 this season. While Fox was let go, GM Ryan Pace got a contract extension through the 2021 season. Arians, one of the NFL?s biggest personalities, retired from coaching after five mostly successful and usually entertaining seasons as head coach of the Cardinals. Arians, a 65-year-old twotime NFL Coach of the Year, announced the decision in an emotional session with the media. He won a franchise-record 50 games. ??It?s been an unbelievable journey,?? he said. ??The tears you see are really tears of joy and peace. I'll miss the players. I'll miss coming out of the locker room hearing the national anthem because it still gets to me.?? Of the reason for his retirement, Arians said, ??Family?s a big one.?? Arians has also had health issues in recent years, including treatment for diverticulitis as well as a successful fight against kidney cancer last offseason.

Joseph staying put John Elway is giving Vance Joseph another chance. The Broncos GM decided to retain his rookie head coach following a 5-11 season that was in many ways the franchise?s worst since Denver?s dismal AFL days in the 1960s . . . Coach Marvin Lewis talked to Bengals owner Mike Brown about his future with the team, but they reached no conclusions and planned more discussions. Gruden rumors grow As the Raiders enter another offseason of uncertainty, already the speculation has turned to Jon Gruden returning to Oakland for a second stint as coach, with ESPN reporting that Gruden is expected to be named the team?s next coach. Gruden has spent the past nine seasons as an announcer for ESPN . . . NFL Network reported that Packers GM Ted Thompson will transition to a new role within the organization . . . Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees, 68, announced his retirement. Good news on McCoy Bills coach Sean McDermott said test results on LeSean McCoy?s injured right ankle were negative, giving the star running back a chance to play against Jacksonville in the AFC wild-card game next Sunday. McCoy was carted off the field in the third quarter of Buffalo?s win at Miami on Sunday . . . Texans GM Rick Smith, who is taking an extended leave of absence to be with his wife as she battles breast cancer, said that he will return to the team, but that he expects to be away for at least a year. Coordinators stick to business By Jim McBride GLOBE STAFF The Patriots? next game? The waiting one. They know when they?ll play next (Jan. 13, 8:15 p.m.) and who the potential foes are (it?ll be the lowest remaining seed among the Chiefs, Titans, and Bills) but a bigger question mark this week is whether the coaching staff will return intact next season. Coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia will be in high demand for the head coaching positions that have opened up around the NFL. The Giants, Lions, Bears, Colts, Raiders, and Cardinals all have vacancies. According to ESPN, the Giants already have submitted requests to interview both McDaniels and Patricia. Additionally, the Colts have sought permission to speak to McDaniels and the Lions have done the same for Patricia. Detroit general manager Bob Quinn knows Patricia well from his days running the Patriots scouting department before leaving in 2015. The network also reported that the Cardinals have requested permission to interview Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores, who would be an in-house candidate to replace Patricia should he leave. Speaking to reporters Monday morning, both McDaniels and Patricia shed little light on their future except to say their focus right now is on postseason preparations. ?That process ? whatever it is, it will take place,?? said McDaniels. ?I?m certainly not aware of anything at this point. I?ve just been focused on trying to grade our tape and work with our staff to try to get ourselves ready to have a productive week here with our guys and get ready to go.?? Patricia sounded a similar tune when asked about potential interviews. ?I have no idea on any of that,?? Patricia said. ?None of that is even really applicable for me right now because I don?t have any information on that. I?m in normal mode ? came in and graded the Jets [film].?? Bill Belichick has been in the enviable position of having both his coordinators in place since 2012 ? a rarity in the modern NFL ? and he appreciates that consistency and the job his staff has done. ?I think our staff has done a good job this year, as they have throughout the years,?? said the coach. ?I?ve been really fortunate to have a lot of great coaches and coordinators on the staff, so that?s been a real positive for me and a positive for our team and our organization.?? As for other teams pursuing McDaniels and Patricia, Belichick said, ?I don?t really know about the rest of it. We?ll see how it goes, but those guys have done a great job for me.?? Belichick has said that he believes both McDaniels and Patricia would make excellent head coaches. McDaniels has head coaching experience in the league, compiling an 11-17 mark with the Broncos in 2009-10. The process is nothing new to either, as both McDaniels and Patricia interviewed for head coaching posts last year before ultimately returning to Foxborough. McDaniels interviewed with the 49ers, Rams, and Jaguars last season. ?All of that stuff, you know, usually takes care of itself,?? said McDaniels. ?There?s a time and a place for that. I?ve gone through it before, which is helpful in terms of being able to balance that and multitask it.?? Asked in what area he has grown the most during his second stint in Foxborough, McDaniels was expansive. ?It?s hard to say one area,? he said. ?I?m 41 years old, so I have a lot of people I look up to. A lot of people that I watch do their jobs I have a tremendous amount of appreciation and respect for. ?Bill certainly is as good a mentor for me as I could ask for. Dante [Scarnecchia] has done a tremendous job for many, many years. I?ve learned so much from him. Learned a lot from the players that you work with, you get feedback with them. ?I just think it?s important to watch and listen to other people to gather information that you can and try to make the best decisions that you can make in a position of leadership. Hopefully, I?ve grown in that area and many others.? Patricia?s name also perennially pops up when jobs come open. He interviewed with the Rams and Chargers last year and with the Browns after the 2015 season. ?I?ve been very, very lucky to be at such a great place for a long time and work for Coach Belichick,?? Patricia said. ?A great coach to follow and try to learn from and try to expand my knowledge. ?So we?re constantly trying to compete, whether it?s just internally as a coach to be better, whether it?s out there on the field with an opponent. I think that?s kind of the drive that you have to have every day as a coach to try and make yourself better, to try to help your players be in a great position to perform on Sunday.?? If the Patriots were to lose McDaniels and Patricia, it would be similar to 2004, when offensive coordinator Charlie Weis left for Notre Dame and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel took the Browns job. Back then, Belichick didn?t officially name a replacement for Weis, though it was largely assumed that McDaniels, serving as quarterbacks coach, called the plays. He was officially named offensive coordinator in 2006. Eric Mangini was promoted to replace Crennel. Jim McBride can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Yo u ? v e g o t t o s t i c k y o u r tongue on the railing and the cameras will flow in your direction.? Despite a game-time temperature of 14 degrees and a windchill of minus-2, few fans complained, as the Patriots clinched home-field advantage for the playoffs with a 26-6 victory over the Jets. ?I wouldn?t want to be anywhere else in the world,? said Tom Musgrove of Shrewsbury, who was sitting in the last row with his brother Dan. In the upper deck, noses ran faster than Dion Lewis, and fans had so many layers on that pliability wasn?t a possibility. The gusts created a wind tunnel in Section 340, which is located in the shade, on the open end of the stadium, opposite the lighthouse. Westerly winds smacked into the side of Gillette harder than linebacker James Harrison, and delivered a winter?s jolt to freezing fans. ?I think this is the coldest section in the stadium,? said Jerry Haines of Team Ops. ?I?ve probably got five layers on my bottom and five or six on top,? said Josh Hyre of STAN GROSSFELD/GLOBE STAFF You know it?s cold in Foxborough when the beer is undrinkable, as Paul Emery found out.

He realizes he could have used that money to pay for a flight to Florida instead. But he didn?t care. From his perch, he could see the entire field and all the way across the frozen tundra to the Pru and Hancock buildings in Boston. ?L e t ?s goooooo!? he screamed down at Brady. His brother sipped a beer that had become a slushie. ? L o o k , w e?r e c r a z y, b u t we?re having a blast,? he said. In the upper deck, wind gusts could be 25-30 miles per hour, according to Matthew Belk, a National Weather Service meteorologist ?You?re above the tree line and above most buildings, so the wind is a little bit freer,? said Belk. The temperature up there would be a degree or two colder than field level, said Belk, ?but the windchill would be worse.? Fans added or subtracted layers on the frozen concourse as if they were trying on wedding gowns at the old Filene?s Basement. Shawn Houk of New York stripped down to his long thermal underwear to quickly add insulated snow pants he had borrowed for the game. H e b r o u g h t h i s f a m i l y, which included a teenage Jets fan and a Patriots fan. They all attended the infamous Patriots-Jets ?butt fumble? game five years ago on Thanksgiving. The boys fought in the stands that day, but cooler heads prevailed this time. ?We hope they are a little bit more mature now,? said their mother, Jackie. No one in this family complained about the weather. ?Our oldest son, Tim, had this on his bucket list ? not his Christmas list ? to see Tom Brady play in his own stadium,? said Jackie, ?so we?re making his dream come true.? In the last row of Section 339, 15-year-old Gabriella Drawnowski of Holyoke sat with her family. ?I promised not to whine,? she said. ?I love the seats and I?ve got these really thick fuzzy socks on. Go Tom Brady.? This was her first game. ?Just don?t think about the cold,? she said. ?Just watch the game and you?ll be fine.? On the upper-deck concourse, bathrooms became warming stations. ?Let?s just stay in here,? said Connor McLaughlin, 17, of Plymouth, N.H. He acknowledged that he was just kidding. Sort of. ?It?s pretty cold. but I?m still having a lot of fun,? he said. ?It?s the experience of a lifetime. I got into the game for free.? Halfway up in Section 340, Vanessa DeMelo of Fall River shivered despite layers, blankets, and hand warmers. ?I bought the tickets as a Christmas present for him,? she said. ?Yeah, it?s pretty cold. I can feel it, and I?m a little bit sorry I got them.? Her boyfriend, Aaron Notarangelo, moved closer, and she smiled. ?This is the best Christmas present anybody could ever ask for,? he said. Diagonally across the stadium in Sec tion 317, things weren?t much better. Ayanah Dowdie and Essah Chisholm of Boston snuggled under a blanket, the wind hitting them in the face like a fist. Dowdie bought the tickets as a Christmas present for her friend. It was her first Patriot game, too. ?I would not be here without him,? she said. ?I need body warmth.

Patriots running back Dion Lewis is stymied in the backfield. James Harrison effect James Harrison played 27 snaps in his Patriots debut, almost exclusively at weakside linebacker (on the opposite side of the formation away from the tight end). He did a nice job taking on two defenders in run defense, setting the edge, and letting Elandon Roberts make the tackle in the backfield. Roberts Harrison Harrison Harrison also dropped into zone coverage on six of his snaps. At 39, Harrison proved he still has game uON FOOTBALL Continued from Page C1 run defense and packs a big punch. And they had Harrison playing weakside linebacker, and he looked like a complete football player on Sunday. The general assumption was that Harrison was brought here to be a situational pass rusher, but he was much more than that against the Jets. First off, Harrison played almost exclusively on first and second down, and came off the field on obvious passing third downs. He only played weakside linebacker ? on the side of the formation away from the tight end ? so that he often was the unblocked defender on running plays, or went headto-head with the offensive tackles. The Patriots then used Harrison in three different ways. In his 27 snaps, Harrison rushed the passer 11 times, almost all of them in the second half, when the Jets were mostly throwing the ball. He doesn?t have a great initial burst anymore, but Harrison still has strength and a motor, and came away with two second-effort sacks and a QB pressure, all against left tackle Kelvin Beachum. Harrison played the run on 10 of his snaps. Most of the runs were away from his side of the field, but on one notable occasion, Harrison took on two blockers, held the edge, and let Rober ts swoop in to stuff Elijah McGuire for a 1-yard loss. This is why they got Harrison ? Lee, Cassius Marsh, and Deatrich Wise have not been consistent at holding the edge. And Harrison even dropped into zone pass coverage six times. The Patriots never matched him up one-onone vs. a receiver, but had him drop into the flat or the middle of the field. On one third and 5, Harrison dropped back, then exploded to the ball and dropped Robby Anderson for a 2-yard stop. Harrison is still a situational player. But he?s a lot more than just a pass rusher, and he still has some football left in him. With Harrison and Van Noy back in the fold, the Patriots suddenly have a credible linebacking corps. Other observations after rewatching the tape: When the Patriots had the ball R Dion Lewis had too many impressive runs to count, and his ability to gain extra yards continues to astound. We counted seven tacklers that Lewis made whiff with his spin moves, jumpcuts, and dynamic ability to start and stop. Among his best runs: making Demario Davis whiff in the backfield and powering through Xavier Cooper to barely convert a third-and-1; on second and 8, Lewis is seemingly corralled by three Jets defenders short of the sticks, but he still squires around Morris Claiborne and picks up the first down; breaking Buster Skrine?s ankles on a 9-yard swing pass; on first and 10, Lewis looks like he?s bottled up inside, but he jump-cuts twice, squirms through a hole, and emerges on the other side for a big 17-yard gain. And Lewis looked like he?s been taking lessons from Le?Veon Bell lately by showcasing an impressively patient running style. On second and 5 in the third quarter, Lewis took a handoff left, stopped, literally took a step backward, squared his body to the line of scrimmage, hit the hole right up the middle, smashed through Rontez Miles to gain 4 extra yards, and picked up the first down. Lewis is setting himself up for a nice payday in free agency this spring, from the Patriots or someone else. R We wrote after Sunday?s game about how Tom Brady needs more help from his teammates in the playoffs. In rewatching the game, it became even more apparent how Brady just isn?t on the same page as his receivers. The CBS cameras showed Brady having a nice, long chat with Danny Amendola as the two walked off the field and hit the sideline following a miscommunication on third and 12. And toward the end of the game, the cameras again showed Brady having a stern discussion with Brandin Cooks on the sideline after the two had a miscommunication on third down (the play where Brady was called for intentional grounding). This after Brady was ticked off at Cooks for slowing down on a deep ball early in the game. It?s not a good sign when the quarterback is having communication errors with two of his top receivers this late in the season. R With several starters out because of injury, and the Patriots clearly protecting Rob Gronkowski from taking any hits, the Patriots again had to rely on some gimmicks to move the ball. For the second week in a row Josh McDaniels called a steady diet of play-action just to give Brady enough time to throw against the Jets? front seven. The tactic worked, as Brady was hit just five times and sacked twice on 39 dropbacks. Lewis?s touchdown reception came off play-action. And they went no-huddle to start the game, to try to get into a rhythm and post an early lead. The Patriots surprisingly took the ball to start the game instead of deferring, and Jim Nantz noted that the Patriots emphasized the need to play from ahead against the Jets. R The Jets took a cue from the Patriots? recent opponents and played a lot of press-man coverage with just a single deep safety, daring the Patriots to beat them deep. And for the most part, the Patriots once again struggled to get separation. The word is out ? press the Patriots receivers at the line of scrimmage and blitz Brady. The Jets tallied both of their sacks this way, and forced four key incompletions with their blitz, including two on third down. Fortunately, the Jets committed three defensive holding penalties, an illegal hands to the face, and a 39-yard pass interference. But the word is out on how to slow down the Patriots. The Patriots? longest play in the first half was just 16 yards, and for the game they only had two passes over 20 yards. R Right tackle Cam Fleming had a rough game. He got beaten badly to the outside by David Bass for an easy sack on a four-man rush. Fleming also allowed a run stuff in the third quarter, and let Jordan Jenkins plow right through him to hit Brady and force an incompletion. The right tackle spot could be an issue for the Patriots in the playoffs. R Phillip Dorsett hasn?t done much to earn Brady?s trust, and dropping that beautiful deep pass on Sunday won?t help. But Dorsett had a key block around the edge to spring Lewis for a 3-yard touchdown run around the left edge. Dwayne Allen had the other key block. R Scary moment in the second quarter, when Lewis rolled up on Nate Solder from behind. Solder hit the deck and came up hopping a few moments later, but he was OK. That could have been disastrous. When the Jets had the ball R The Patriots? run defense was excellent, holding the Jets to 40 yards on 19 carries. Of course, it helps that they could sell out to stop the run because Bryce Petty was the quarterback, but Lawrence Guy (three stuffs), Malcom Brown (two stuffs), Trey Flowers, Ricky Jean Francois, and Roberts (one each) all made plays behind the line of scrimmage. Guy, especially, has been on a dominant run over the last month or so. The Jets had a big run set up with a toss to the right, but Guy maintained his leverage against the guard and dropped Bilal Powell for just 2 yards. R Harrison is going to be a big addition in the run game, because Lee just isn?t getting it done. Once again, Lee was unable to set the edge and allowed Powell to scamper for 24 yards to the left side. And Trey Flowers got caught inside on an 11-yard run by Elijah McGuire. R Speaking of the Patriots? suddenly formidable linebacker corps, that includes Marquis Flowers, who has played 86 snaps over the last two games and has done a nice job in all phases. He?s not the most fluid athlete in zone coverage, but he covers the middle of the field well enough, and had a beautiful delayed pass rush for a sack up the middle. R Van Noy definitely looked tentative running around the field. This looked important for him just to get some game action before the playoffs, because the Patriots need him. R The Patriots showed a Cover 0 defense for the first time all year (no deep safeties), daring Petty to beat them deep. Petty took advantage twice, hitting Neal Sterling in the flat for 15 yards, and throwing a beautiful deep ball to ArDarius Stewart over Jonathan Jones for 46 yards. Special teams R The kickoff coverage wasn?t always perfect, but Stephen Gostkowski again was masterful with the placement of his short kickoffs. Only 1 of his 5 kickoffs went for touchbacks, and Gostkowski finished the regular season with the second-lowest touchback percentage in the NFL (40.8 percent), behind only Tampa Bay. R Tremendous punting day for Ryan Allen. The net average of 41.8 doesn?t jump off the page, but five of his eight punts were downed inside the 20, and three were downed inside the 5 (all in the fourth quarter). His coffin corner punt that went out of bounds at the 3 was a beauty. Ben Volin can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

After Milton and BOWL Central Florida capped ROUNDUP a perfect season, he suggested it was time to respect the Knights, even if they weren?t invited to the playoff. Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for 116 yards with another touchdown, leading No. 10 UCF to a 34-27 Peach Bowl win over No. 7 Auburn on Monday in Atlanta. Then it was time to boast. ??I said on the podium you can go ahead and cancel the playoffs,?? Milton said. ??I'm not changing my mind.?? UCF (13-0) led, 34-20, before having to stop a late Auburn comeback. Antwan Collier?s interception in the end zone with 24 seconds remaining clinched the win. The UCF players launched a joyous postgame celebration, rolling around in confetti on the field while wearing Tshirts that read ??Champions.?? The Knights won in their final game with coach Scott Frost, who stayed with the team through the bowl game after accepting an offer to become the new coach at Nebraska, his alma mater. Frost will bring most of his UCF assistants to Nebraska. The Knights thought they deserved a higher ranking after winning the American Athletic Conference and leading the nation in scoring. They made a strong statement by beating Auburn (10-4), which was held to 90 yards rushing on 44 carries. Frost said ??it wasn?t right?? for UCF to not receive more consideration for the four-team playoff. Citrus Bowl ? Receiver Miles Boykin made a dynamic one-handed grab and raced down the sideline for a 55-yard touchdown with 1:28 remaining to give 14th-ranked Notre Dame a 21-17 victory over No. 16 LSU in Orlando. The win by the Irish (10-3) is their first in a New Year?s Day bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M and snapped a nine-game skid in January postseason games. Boykin had only nine catches for 151 yards and a TD coming into the game, but he got his first start after starters Chase Claypool (shoulder injury) and Kevin Stephenson (suspension) were ruled out. Boykin finished the Citrus Bowl with three receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown and was named the game?s MVP. Outback Bowl ? Jake Bentley threw for 239 yards and two touchdowns to help South Carolina overcome a 16-point second-half deficit to beat Michigan, 26-19, in the Outback Bowl in Tampa. The sophomore tossed scoring passes of 21 yards to Bryan Edwards and 53 yards to Shi Smith, the latter giving the Gamecocks (9-4) a 23-19 lead early in the fourth quarter. Michigan (8-5) finished with its first three-game losing streak under coach Jim Harbaugh. Georgia wins Rose in 2нOT thriller uROSE BOWL Continued from Page C1 down would have ended the game. The Bulldogs will play either Alabama or Clemson, who played late Monday night, on Jan. 8 for the national championship in Atlanta, about 90 miles from their campus ? with a chance to win their first national title since 1980. ??We got to get back to work. It?s not done,?? Michel said. ??Now we got to finish. Let?s just finish this season off right.?? The first overtime Rose Bowl was also the highest-scoring, surpassing last year???s 52-49 USC victory against Penn State. There was a lot more on the line in this one, which will go down as one of the greatest Granddaddies of Them All. After an offside penalty on Georgia gave Oklahoma a first down on third and 5 in the second OT possession, the Sooners stalled again and Austin Seibert came out for a 27-yard field goal. Leaping through the line, Lorenzo Carter got his outstretched hand on the kick and the ball fluttered down short of the uprights. Any score would have ended it for the Bulldogs, and on the second play Michel slipped one tackle and was home free. The Bulldogs sprinted off the sideline and toward the corner of the end zone to mob Michel. Confetti rained down. Meanwhile, Mayfield stood motionless on the sideline for several seconds, bent over with his hands on his knees and head down. Mayfield battled flu-like symptoms the week leading into the game, but he played just fine. ??I can?t believe it?s over. It?s been a wild ride,?? said Mayfield with a hoarse Scoreboard TUE WED 1/2 1/3 NYI 7:00 NESN THU 1/4 FRI 1/5 MIN 7:00 NBCSB Home games shaded first half, including a nifty reverse pass to the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback that made it 31-14 with six seconds left in the second quarter. Oklahoma had 360 yards in the first half. Georgia coach Kirby Smart said the defense ??stunk it up?? in the first half, but there were no dramatic changes in the second. Oklahoma managed only 171 yards and one touchdown in the second half and OT. Oklahoma linebacker Caleb Kelly lowered a shoulder into Michel trying to turn the corner on a sweep and the ball popped loose. Steven Parker picked it up on the bounce, tight-roped the sideline, and raced 46 yards for a score to put the Sooners up, 45-38, with 6:52 left in the fourth. With 3:22 left in the fourth, Georgia freshman quarterback Jake Fromm led a game-tying drive, capped by Chubb?s TD run. SportsLog Rockets? Harden to miss two weeks Houston Rockets star James Harden will miss at least two weeks with a left hamstring strain. The team announced Monday that the NBA?s leading scorer has a grade-2 strain and will be reevaluated in two weeks. Harden was injured on a missed layup late in the fourth quarter of Houston?s 148142 double-overtime win against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. He said after the game that he didn?t think the injury was serious, but the guard was walking with a pronounced limp. Harden is averaging 32.3 points and 9.1 assists (third in the league) . . . DeMar DeRozan scored a Raptors-record 52 points as Toronto beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 131-127, in overtime, matching a team record with its 12th consecutive home victory. DeRozan is the third Raptor to score 50 or more in a game, joining Vince Carter and Terн rence Ross, who each had 51.

WINTER SPORTS Shiffrin matches idol in Cup wins Mikaela Shiffrin won a parallel slalom city event on Monday in Oslo to match her childhood idol, Marlies Schild, with her 37th World Cup victory. Shiffrin pumped her fist after edging Swiss rival Wendy Holdener in the final of a night race made complicated by fog and mist. ?It worked out really well for me,? she said. ?It?s not always that way. . . . You have to really dig deep.?? Shiffrin, the 22-year-old American standout, and Schild, the retired Austrian slalom specialist, are now joint sixth on the list of all-time winners that Lindsey Vonn tops with 78 victories. It was the seventh win overall and second in parallel this season for Shiffrin, who is favored to defend her Olympic slalom title at the PyeongChang Games next month.

Social relationships score high on your list of priorities. You have a sixth sense that helps you understand what is about to happen. If you are single, tap into this intuitive ability when choosing whom to date. Potential suitors can't seem to stay away from you. If you are attached, be smart and dote on your sweetie. You might be going through a lot, but understand that your significant other will have his or her hands full adjusting to you. CANCER might be challenging to deal with. ARIES (March 21-April 19) In your mind, you could be won- dering if today and yesterday are representative of the rest of 2018. Some of you might feel as if you have been shot out of a cannon. Uproar at home keeps your focus on the domestic scene. You'll desire some peace and quiet. Tonight: Try to settle in. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You observe more than others seem to realize. In fact, you don't miss much because of your keen perceptions. You typically are nonjudgmental; however, that might not be the case right now. A loved one comes toward you with good news. Tonight: Celebrate the night away! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might be forced to deal with your finances. Opportunities THIS DAY IN HISTORY Today is Tuesday, Jan. 2, the second day of 2018.

Players focus on bidding and neglect dummy play and defense. Today?s deal from the 2017 World Championships was played 12 times, in the semifinals of three major events. At 10 tables, North-South got to a routine 3NT. West led a low diamond. When dummy played low, East took the king and shifted to the queen of hearts, and the defense raced off six heart tricks. In the Bermuda Bowl, the deal was tied: plus 300 to East-West at both tables. In such elite company, it seems someone would have known about safety plays. Declarer doesn?t want East to get in for a possibly fatal heart shift, so he should put up the ace on the first diamond. If West has the king, he will have it later. The actual fall of the king makes things easy. If instead East played low, South could continue with a spade to his jack. He would have many chances to succeed. In the World Championships, one (!) declarer made 3NT. DAILY QUESTION You hold: ? Q 9 7 ? 9 5 ? A 7 5 ? K Q J 4 3. Your partner opens one heart, you respond two clubs, he rebids two hearts and you try 2NT. Partner then bids three diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: Your partner suggests six hearts, four diamonds and minimum opening values. Your 2NT was a bit conservative, but to change your mind and act aggressively now would be undisciplined. Bid three hearts. If partner holds 6 5, A K 10 7 6 4, K Q 6 3, 3, your black-suit honors will be wasted. break through the haze of wondering what to do.

Patriots running back Dion Lewis is stymied in the backfield. James Harrison effect James Harrison played 27 snaps in his Patriots debut, almost exclusively at weakside linebacker (on the opposite side of the formation away from the tight end). He did a nice job taking on two defenders in run defense, setting the edge, and letting Elandon Roberts make the tackle in the backfield. Roberts Harrison Harrison Harrison also dropped into zone coverage on six of his snaps. At 39, Harrison proved he still has game uON FOOTBALL Continued from Page C1 run defense and packs a big punch. And they had Harrison playing weakside linebacker, and he looked like a complete football player on Sunday. The general assumption was that Harrison was brought here to be a situational pass rusher, but he was much more than that against the Jets. First off, Harrison played almost exclusively on first and second down, and came off the field on obvious passing third downs. He only played weakside linebacker ? on the side of the formation away from the tight end ? so that he often was the unblocked defender on running plays, or went headto-head with the offensive tackles. The Patriots then used Harrison in three different ways. In his 27 snaps, Harrison rushed the passer 11 times, almost all of them in the second half, when the Jets were mostly throwing the ball. He doesn?t have a great initial burst anymore, but Harrison still has strength and a motor, and came away with two second-effort sacks and a QB pressure, all against left tackle Kelvin Beachum. Harrison played the run on 10 of his snaps. Most of the runs were away from his side of the field, but on one notable occasion, Harrison took on two blockers, held the edge, and let Rober ts swoop in to stuff Elijah McGuire for a 1-yard loss. This is why they got Harrison ? Lee, Cassius Marsh, and Deatrich Wise have not been consistent at holding the edge. And Harrison even dropped into zone pass coverage six times. The Patriots never matched him up one-onone vs. a receiver, but had him drop into the flat or the middle of the field. On one third and 5, Harrison dropped back, then exploded to the ball and dropped Robby Anderson for a 2-yard stop. Harrison is still a situational player. But he?s a lot more than just a pass rusher, and he still has some football left in him. With Harrison and Van Noy back in the fold, the Patriots suddenly have a credible linebacking corps. Other observations after rewatching the tape: When the Patriots had the ball R Dion Lewis had too many impressive runs to count, and his ability to gain extra yards continues to astound. We counted seven tacklers that Lewis made whiff with his spin moves, jumpcuts, and dynamic ability to start and stop. Among his best runs: making Demario Davis whiff in the backfield and powering through Xavier Cooper to barely convert a third-and-1; on second and 8, Lewis is seemingly corralled by three Jets defenders short of the sticks, but he still squires around Morris Claiborne and picks up the first down; breaking Buster Skrine?s ankles on a 9-yard swing pass; on first and 10, Lewis looks like he?s bottled up inside, but he jump-cuts twice, squirms through a hole, and emerges on the other side for a big 17-yard gain. And Lewis looked like he?s been taking lessons from Le?Veon Bell lately by showcasing an impressively patient running style. On second and 5 in the third quarter, Lewis took a handoff left, stopped, literally took a step backward, squared his body to the line of scrimmage, hit the hole right up the middle, smashed through Rontez Miles to gain 4 extra yards, and picked up the first down. Lewis is setting himself up for a nice payday in free agency this spring, from the Patriots or someone else. R We wrote after Sunday?s game about how Tom Brady needs more help from his teammates in the playoffs. In rewatching the game, it became even more apparent how Brady just isn?t on the same page as his receivers. The CBS cameras showed Brady having a nice, long chat with Danny Amendola as the two walked off the field and hit the sideline following a miscommunication on third and 12. And toward the end of the game, the cameras again showed Brady having a stern discussion with Brandin Cooks on the sideline after the two had a miscommunication on third down (the play where Brady was called for intentional grounding). This after Brady was ticked off at Cooks for slowing down on a deep ball early in the game. It?s not a good sign when the quarterback is having communication errors with two of his top receivers this late in the season. R With several starters out because of injury, and the Patriots clearly protecting Rob Gronkowski from taking any hits, the Patriots again had to rely on some gimmicks to move the ball. For the second week in a row Josh McDaniels called a steady diet of play-action just to give Brady enough time to throw against the Jets? front seven. The tactic worked, as Brady was hit just five times and sacked twice on 39 dropbacks. Lewis?s touchdown reception came off play-action. And they went no-huddle to start the game, to try to get into a rhythm and post an early lead. The Patriots surprisingly took the ball to start the game instead of deferring, and Jim Nantz noted that the Patriots emphasized the need to play from ahead against the Jets. R The Jets took a cue from the Patriots? recent opponents and played a lot of press-man coverage with just a single deep safety, daring the Patriots to beat them deep. And for the most part, the Patriots once again struggled to get separation. The word is out ? press the Patriots receivers at the line of scrimmage and blitz Brady. The Jets tallied both of their sacks this way, and forced four key incompletions with their blitz, including two on third down. Fortunately, the Jets committed three defensive holding penalties, an illegal hands to the face, and a 39-yard pass interference. But the word is out on how to slow down the Patriots. The Patriots? longest play in the first half was just 16 yards, and for the game they only had two passes over 20 yards. R Right tackle Cam Fleming had a rough game. He got beaten badly to the outside by David Bass for an easy sack on a four-man rush. Fleming also allowed a run stuff in the third quarter, and let Jordan Jenkins plow right through him to hit Brady and force an incompletion. The right tackle spot could be an issue for the Patriots in the playoffs. R Phillip Dorsett hasn?t done much to earn Brady?s trust, and dropping that beautiful deep pass on Sunday won?t help. But Dorsett had a key block around the edge to spring Lewis for a 3-yard touchdown run around the left edge. Dwayne Allen had the other key block. R Scary moment in the second quarter, when Lewis rolled up on Nate Solder from behind. Solder hit the deck and came up hopping a few moments later, but he was OK. That could have been disastrous. When the Jets had the ball R The Patriots? run defense was excellent, holding the Jets to 40 yards on 19 carries. Of course, it helps that they could sell out to stop the run because Bryce Petty was the quarterback, but Lawrence Guy (three stuffs), Malcom Brown (two stuffs), Trey Flowers, Ricky Jean Francois, and Roberts (one each) all made plays behind the line of scrimmage. Guy, especially, has been on a dominant run over the last month or so. The Jets had a big run set up with a toss to the right, but Guy maintained his leverage against the guard and dropped Bilal Powell for just 2 yards. R Harrison is going to be a big addition in the run game, because Lee just isn?t getting it done. Once again, Lee was unable to set the edge and allowed Powell to scamper for 24 yards to the left side. And Trey Flowers got caught inside on an 11-yard run by Elijah McGuire. R Speaking of the Patriots? suddenly formidable linebacker corps, that includes Marquis Flowers, who has played 86 snaps over the last two games and has done a nice job in all phases. He?s not the most fluid athlete in zone coverage, but he covers the middle of the field well enough, and had a beautiful delayed pass rush for a sack up the middle. R Van Noy definitely looked tentative running around the field. This looked important for him just to get some game action before the playoffs, because the Patriots need him. R The Patriots showed a Cover 0 defense for the first time all year (no deep safeties), daring Petty to beat them deep. Petty took advantage twice, hitting Neal Sterling in the flat for 15 yards, and throwing a beautiful deep ball to ArDarius Stewart over Jonathan Jones for 46 yards. Special teams R The kickoff coverage wasn?t always perfect, but Stephen Gostkowski again was masterful with the placement of his short kickoffs. Only 1 of his 5 kickoffs went for touchbacks, and Gostkowski finished the regular season with the second-lowest touchback percentage in the NFL (40.8 percent), behind only Tampa Bay. R Tremendous punting day for Ryan Allen. The net average of 41.8 doesn?t jump off the page, but five of his eight punts were downed inside the 20, and three were downed inside the 5 (all in the fourth quarter). His coffin corner punt that went out of bounds at the 3 was a beauty. Ben Volin can be reached at email@example.com.

After Milton and BOWL Central Florida capped ROUNDUP a perfect season, he suggested it was time to respect the Knights, even if they weren?t invited to the playoff. Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for 116 yards with another touchdown, leading No. 10 UCF to a 34-27 Peach Bowl win over No. 7 Auburn on Monday in Atlanta. Then it was time to boast. ??I said on the podium you can go ahead and cancel the playoffs,?? Milton said. ??I'm not changing my mind.?? UCF (13-0) led, 34-20, before having to stop a late Auburn comeback. Antwan Collier?s interception in the end zone with 24 seconds remaining clinched the win. The UCF players launched a joyous postgame celebration, rolling around in confetti on the field while wearing Tshirts that read ??Champions.?? The Knights won in their final game with coach Scott Frost, who stayed with the team through the bowl game after accepting an offer to become the new coach at Nebraska, his alma mater. Frost will bring most of his UCF assistants to Nebraska. The Knights thought they deserved a higher ranking after winning the American Athletic Conference and leading the nation in scoring. They made a strong statement by beating Auburn (10-4), which was held to 90 yards rushing on 44 carries. Frost said ??it wasn?t right?? for UCF to not receive more consideration for the four-team playoff. Citrus Bowl ? Receiver Miles Boykin made a dynamic one-handed grab and raced down the sideline for a 55-yard touchdown with 1:28 remaining to give 14th-ranked Notre Dame a 21-17 victory over No. 16 LSU in Orlando. The win by the Irish (10-3) is their first in a New Year?s Day bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M and snapped a nine-game skid in January postseason games. Boykin had only nine catches for 151 yards and a TD coming into the game, but he got his first start after starters Chase Claypool (shoulder injury) and Kevin Stephenson (suspension) were ruled out. Boykin finished the Citrus Bowl with three receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown and was named the game?s MVP. Outback Bowl ? Jake Bentley threw for 239 yards and two touchdowns to help South Carolina overcome a 16-point second-half deficit to beat Michigan, 26-19, in the Outback Bowl in Tampa. The sophomore tossed scoring passes of 21 yards to Bryan Edwards and 53 yards to Shi Smith, the latter giving the Gamecocks (9-4) a 23-19 lead early in the fourth quarter.
