‘They’ve Been Waiting 12 Years.’ Trump Administration’s New Visa Rules Halts Plans of Immigrants Nearing Finish Line

(BOSTON) — After nearly a dozen years moving through the U.S. visa system, Sai Kyaw’s brother and sister and their families were at the finish line: a final interview before they could leave Myanmar to join him in Massachusetts and work at his restaurant. Then a dramatic turn in U.S. immigration policy halted their plans. The interview was postponed, and it’s not clear when, or whether, it will be rescheduled. “It’s terrible,” Kyaw said. “There’s nothing we can really do except pray. They’v...

Bruins acquire forward Ondrej Kase from Ducks

The Boston Bruins killed two birds with one stone on Friday afternoon. Not only did the club add a valuable and highly sought-after forward in Ondrej Kase for the stretch run, they ridded themselves of David Backes and a large chunk of his inflated salary, too. Aside from Backes' cap hit and his deteriorating game, the Anaheim Ducks also acquired Boston's 2020 first-round draft pick along with defense prospect Axel Andersson in the deal.

Backes, 35, has scored 554 in 944 career games with Boston and St. Louis. Selected by St. Louis in the second round (62nd overall) of the 2003 draft, Backes played his first 10 NHL seasons with the Blues before signing as a free agent with the Bruins in 2016.

Robinhood, Fidelity, and Charles Schwab are racing to give customers the chance to buy $1 slices of stocks. We talked to a dozen insiders about who wins, who loses, and what it says about trading today.

The rise of self-directed fractional-share trading is a product of the fiercely competitive, margin-pressured environment that startup and legacy brokerages alike are operating in today. Players like Robinhood, Fidelity, and Charles Schwab have raced to announce their own offerings — marketed largely at customers still building up wealth — in recent months, or have hinted at launches it in the press.  At a moment when every last bell and whistle is a differentiator in a zero-commission moment,...

MLB was told about the Astros’ system years ago and did nothing

Yesterday he talked to the Boston media about his time in Oakland. Specifically, he talked about how, when he played there, he and the rest of the A's learned about the specifics of the Astros' sign-stealing scheme from teammate Mike Fiers, who was traded to Oakland in August of that season. According to Lucroy, the Athletics informed Major League Baseball about their experience with the Astros, but no investigation was started until Fiers went on the record with The Athletic in Novemb...

Isaiah Thomas would 'love' to return to Celtics, but is the feeling mutual?

Isaiah Thomas just wants another NBA opportunity, even if it's with the team that shipped him out of town two and a half years ago. In an interview Thursday with HoopsHype's Alex Kennedy, the free-agent point guard said he'd be open to the returning to the Celtics on the buyout market and harbors no ill will toward Boston for trading him in August 2017. "For sure, if the opportunity presented itself," Thomas told Kennedy.

Darnell Nurse Catching Unfair Criticism in Edmonton

That Darnell Nurse needs defending after a game in which an injury-depleted Edmonton Oilers team walked away with a point against the best team in the NHL seems insane, yet here we are. In a game few expected the Oilers to win, Edmonton took the Boston Bruins to overtime, losing the game but still earning a much-needed point in a tight Pacific Conference race. Edmonton maintained pace after the Vancouver Canucks were also only able to salvage a single point, and the Oilers still sit atop the...

SpaceX’s spin-outs are helping build LA’s startup ecosystem

During the days when Snapchat’s popularity was booming, investors thought the company would become the anchor for a new Los Angeles technology scene.

One of the jurors who convicted Whitey Bulger started up a strange pen pal friendship with him

I was on Cape Cod this past weekend — specifically, the town of Eastham, which is way up by the wrist and fairly desolate in winter. What I didn't know at the time was that Janet Uhlar, one of the juror's from Whitey Bulger's trial, was right around the corner from me the whole time. Along with the collection of handwritten letters she'd received from him between 2014 and his totally suspicious prison death in 2018. NBC News just published a piece about Uhlar and her relationship with Bulger, an...

Coronavirus concerns push Facebook and Sony to skip the year's biggest gathering for video game makers (FB, SNE)

How Dr. George Franklin Grant's Small Improvement Revolutionized Golf

IMAGINE GOLF WITHOUT THE MODERN GOLF TEE. That's the way it was until men such as Dr. George Franklin Grant (1846-1910) arrived on the scene in the late 19th century.Dr. Grant was an African American who, in 1899, patented an improved wooden tee that "consisted of a wood cone with a rubber sleeve to support the ball," according to Wikipedia.(Dr. Grant was also the first African American professor at Harvard and a Boston dentist.)And now golf balls fly prodigious distances. But it wouldn't be so...

NHL trade deadline: Bruins might have another top-6 winger option in Brandon Saad

The Bruins are left with Chris Kreider and Kyle Palmieri as the two biggest top-6 winger names still available on the trade market -- and likely to move -- ahead of Monday afternoon's NHL trade deadline. Part of the waiting game for Boston is on the Rangers and Devils, who are mulling if they're indeed going to deal the impact wingers. Part of the waiting game is a hesitancy on the Bruins part to pay the kind of premium price those teams are still anticipating five days ahead of the de...

Clippers prepare for stretch run, in flux but formidable

In the immediate aftermath of a stinging 141-133 overtime loss in Boston, even Amir Coffey, a young guard on a two-way contract, seemed to be channeling some of the angst associated with this season’s Clippers, telling reporters on the scene: “We have a lot to work through.” That might be true: The Clippers limped into the All-Star break, losing three of four on their road trip and without knowing when they’d get Paul George (that nagging hamstring) or Patrick Beverley (that nagging groin) back ...

Midwest, Northeast to feel like spring again, after winter's brief visit

The cold weather settling into the Midwest and Northeast this week would normally go unnoticed by the second half of February, but amid this winter's unusually mild weather, it stands out and still commands some respect for those who must work or spend time walking outdoors for any length of time.The leading edge of Arctic air produced snow squalls, gusty winds and blowing snow in the Montreal area on Wednesday morning, which were a factor in a fatal 200-vehicle pileup. Squalls associated wi...

Bypass LaGuardia: Seaplane Service Will Challenge New York-Boston Shuttle

Cape Air won approval to start flights from Boston Harbor to New York City, at East 23rd St. in Manhattan. This is a one year pilot program for four flights a day. Currently Amtrak is desirable for its downtown-to-downtown service, making up for slow train speeds by avoiding commutes for passengers looking to travel between city centers. This service offers to cut out the airport transit while retaining the speed of flying, though of course is subject to weather more than train travel. The maj...
