FOXBOROUGH -- Life has been good in New England. No running backs? Cordarrelle Patterson says no problem. No Gronk? Special teams and Josh Gordon will pick up the slack. A future Hall of Fame quarterback comes to town desperate for a win? The Pats sent him packing with single-game season lows in points and passing yards. Can't score touchdowns in the red zone? Well, at least they're winning. New England's red-zone performance has been its only consistent on-field blemish since a season-changing win over Kansas City in Week 6. Against the Bears, Bills and Packers, the Patriots have scored touchdowns on barely half of their offensive possessions that reach the 20-yard line. That percentage ranks well inside the bottom half of the league. Defensively, it's even worse. The 20-yard line has served essentially as a green light for opponents marching toward the end zone over the last three weeks. New England's surrendered … [Read more...] about New England Patriots’ red-zone struggles could invite an upset at Tennessee
Larch Madness When it comes to fall color, New England can keep its famous trees. We have something uniquely ours that stokes a passion in hikers, drawing them into the high country with their siren song of color. When I visit, there’s a quarter-inch of early winter snow on the ground, but the hillside around me is on fire. At least, if I squint my eyes just right, it looks like it. Where evergreen trees once stood, there are hundreds of bright yellow spears adding color to the alpine landscape. This particular amphitheater would make your Pinterest friends jealous any time of year thanks to the Cascade hit parade of mountain scenery: a backdrop of jagged mountains, rugged cliffs, a deep blue lake and trees speckling the pristine shoreline. But for a few short weeks in the fall, the scene explodes with autumn hues that are exclusive to the Pacific Northwest. It’s time once again for the annual larch march. Hiding in plain sight At a glance, larches may look like any … [Read more...] about Think fall foliage is a New England thing? Go on a larch march

Freyer Globe Staff October 03, 2018 As the opioid crisis continues to grip Massachusetts, anyone could encounter a person who has collapsed and may be dying from an overdose. It happens in public parks, restaurant bathrooms, and — increasingly — workplaces. And many bystanders have no idea what to do.In response, a movement is gradually taking hold to make overdose response a routine component of safety training, alongside first aid and CPR — for first responders and laypeople alike. In the latest such effort, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is announcing Thursday a pilot program to provide the overdose-reversing drug Narcan to three employers and a union, and to train employees in its use.“We want to communicate to employees that [addiction] is not a ‘we-they’ thing. This is a human thing,” said Ken … [Read more...] about Many people don’t know how to administer overdose-reversing drugs. Blue Cross is trying to change that
