Comment on crispy oven pulled pork by Jennifer W

Can I ask a question about the cut of pork- when I buy a Boston butt it comes all tied up so it doesn’t fall apart. But it seems with the rub you would want to untie to get the rub in all the books and crannies for flavor. Do recommend keeping it tied and only rubbing the outside or untying and using the rub in all the books and crannies. Thanks!

Root AI raises $7.2M seed round to deploy its harvesting robot amid COVID-19-fueled demand

By all accounts, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of robotics and automation by months, if not years. The reasons are fairly clear — robotics don’t call in sick, nor are they disease vectors in the same manner as their human counterparts. As food production and agriculture are looking to be among the biggest winners from the trend, it’s little wonder that Root AI is announcing a new funding round. The Boston-based startup has already been getting a fair bit of press (includi...

5 Encouraging Signs for Capitals Fans as NHL Playoffs Begin

All things considered, the situation could be a lot worse for the Washington Capitals as the Eastern Conference’s third seed prepares to take on the seventh-seeded New York Islanders and their former head coach Barry Trotz in the first round of the 2020 NHL Playoffs on Wednesday in Toronto.

Rod Brind’Amour On The Questionable Goal From The Boston Bruins

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer, Brind’Amour challenged one aspect of the play; the NHL ruled that the officials had actually gotten a different aspect wrong and not only awarded the goal but gave the Bruins a power play. “This is why the league’s a joke, in my opinion, on these things,” Brind’Amour told The News & Observer. “That one is a crime scene.” n the second period, Boston’s Charlie Coyle ended up scoring into an open net after Anders Bjork swiped the puck from Pet...

Media mogul Sumner Redstone dies at 97

11 Zero-Cost Room-Changing Ideas

Renovating your home can be a time-consuming and expensive process (I should know; I’ve been slowly working on my 1880s house outside Boston for years now). But you’d be surprised by how easy it is to refresh a room with just a few simple tweaks. I was reminded of this fact a few weeks ago when I volunteered to help a friend get her house ready for a party. Ostensibly, I was on hand to make the flower arrangements, but I couldn’t resist the urge to move a few things here and there. Before I knew...

Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — He had just finished scoring 61 points in a needed win for his Trail Blazers. But Damian Lillard wasn’t done. He puffed out his chest and shouted toward press row, “Put some (expletive) respect on my name!” Of course, the people actually present for Lillard’s performance probably didn’t need any more telling. The NBA restart has been as colorful and compelling as could have been imagined, and that’s thanks much in part to a riveting race for the Western Conference eighth...

Revisiting the Ducks’ Chris Wagner – Jason Chimera Trade

When the Anaheim Ducks traded Chris Wagner to the New York Islanders for Jason Chimera on Feb. 26, 2018, many Ducks fans were disappointed to see the forward go. The former fifth-round pick had worked his way to the top, having spent three seasons in the AHL with Norfolk before making it to the NHL. He had even played top-6 minutes for the Ducks when Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler were both out due to injuries. Wagner’s time with the Ducks was halted by a short stint with the Colorado Avalanche...

Throwing Muses – “Frosting”

Throwing Muses come from the same great '80s Boston alt-rock scene that produced Pixies, and founding member Tanya Donelly, who has her own new album coming out this week, went on to the Breeders and Belly.

Emptying the NWHL Notebook: the Lost Leveille & Selander Tapes

Unpacking Duck Creek Technologies’ IPO and hoped-for $2.7B valuation

Tech stocks retain their highs as the second quarter’s earnings season begins to fade into the rearview mirror, and there are still a number of companies looking to go public while the times are good. It looks like a smart move, as public investors are hungry for growth-oriented shares — which is just what tech and venture-backed companies have in spades. The companies currently looking to go public are diverse. China-based real-estate giant KE Holdings — a hybrid listings company and digital tr...

Flyers Find Their Mojo in Round Robin

The NHL chose a unique format for the playoffs in its return to play, and so far it’s paid off in spades for the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers had the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference when COVID-19 forced the league to pause in March. Now, after a round robin for seeding against the top three teams, they head into the real playoffs with the top seed, flipping places with the Boston Bruins. The one-off, round-robin format was nothing but good to the Flyers, who went unbeaten a...

Sweden looks to US model to curb deadly gang shootings

Police in Stockholm are considering using a strategy against gun violence pioneered in gang-ridden US cities to counter a wave of shootings including an incident in which a 12-year-old girl was killed in crossfire last week.

Bruins’ Playoff Success Banks on Production From Second Line

Boston Bruins alternate captain David Krejci centered one of the best lines in the team’s recent history when the Czech pivot and wings Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton steered it to Stanley Cup victory in 2011. Now, Horton and Lucic have been gone for several years, and the second line has never been as good. A huge part of the problem is that the coaches have struggled to find a line combination that develops enough chemistry to stick together long and be productive. Krejci has been a mainstay...
