Commuter exposures to VOCs in Boston, Massachusetts.  

PubMed

This study examines the commuter's exposure to six gasoline-related volatile organic compounds (VOCs): benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, m-/p-xylene, o-xylene, and formaldehyde. The VOC concentrations to which commuters were exposed in four different commuting modes (driving, subway, walking, and biking) in Boston, Massachusetts, are compared. The VOC concentrations in participants' homes and offices were also measured. Factors that could influence in-vehicle VOC concentrations, such as different traffic patterns, car model and vehicle ventilation conditions, were also evaluated. Driving a private car was associated with higher VOC concentrations and commuting on urban roadways resulted in the highest VOC concentrations. The use of car heaters resulted in higher in-vehicle VOC concentrations. The longer the subway commuters stayed underground, the higher their VOC exposures. The home-to-work car or subway commute represented about 10 to 20 percent of an individual's total VOC exposure for these compounds. PMID:1799446

Boston, Massachusetts: Solar in Action (Brochure)  

SciTech Connect

This brochure provides an overview of the challenges and successes of Boston, MA, a 2007 Solar America City awardee, on the path toward becoming a solar-powered community. Accomplishments, case studies, key lessons learned, and local resource information are given. The City of Boston and its Solar America Cities program, Solar Boston, are helping to debunk the myth that solar energy is only feasible in the southern latitudes. Boston has some of the highest energy prices in the country and will likely be one of the first locations where solar power achieves grid parity with conventional energy technologies. Solar Boston is facilitating the rapid development of solar energy projects and infrastructure in the short-term, and is preparing for the rapid market growth that is expected with the imminent arrival of grid parity over the long-term. Solar Boston developed the strategy for achieving Mayor Menino's goal of installing 25 MW of solar energy throughout Boston by 2015. Through Solar Boston, the city has developed a strategy for the installation of solar technology throughout Boston, including mapping feasible locations, preparing a permitting guide, and planning the citywide bulk purchase, financing, and installation of solar technology. The city has also worked with local organizations to maximize Boston's participation in state incentive programs and innovative financing initiatives. The resulting accomplishments include the following: (1) Created an online map of current local renewable energy projects with a tool to allow building owners to calculate their rooftop solar potential. The map is currently live at http://gis.cityofboston.gov/solarboston/. (2) Supported the city's Green Affordable Housing Program (GAHP), in partnership with the Department of Neighborhood Development (DND). Under GAHP, the city is installing more than 150 kW of PV on 200 units of affordable housing. DND requires that all new city-funded affordable housing be LEED silver certified and built solar-ready. (3) Defined solar's role in emergency preparedness with the Boston Mayor's Office of Emergency Preparedness. (4) Worked with local organizations to maximize Boston's participation in state incentive programs and innovative financing mechanisms. Solar Boston partners include DOE, MTC, local utilities and unions, an anonymous foundation, and a broad range of local, regional, and national clean-energy stakeholders. Solar Boston kicked off its partner program on January 10, 2008, sponsoring a workshop on 'Thinking BIG about Boston's Solar Energy Future,' to discuss how state, utility, and municipal programs can work together. Presentations were given by Solar Boston, Keyspan/National Grid, NSTAR, and MTC.

Seafloor environments within the Boston Harbor-Massachusetts Bay sedimentary system: a regional synthesis  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Modern seafloor sedimentary environments within the glaciated, topographically complex Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay area have been interpreted and mapped from an extensive collection of sidescan sonar records and supplemental marine geologic data. Three categories of environments are present that reflect the dominant long-term processes of erosion or nondeposition, deposition, and sediment reworking. Indicates areas within the Boston Harbor-Massachusetts Bay sedimentary system where fine-grained sediments and associated contaminants are likely to be either moved or deposited. It also provides a guide to the locations and variability of benthic habitats. -from Authors

Processes influencing the transport and fate of contaminated sediments in the coastal ocean: Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Most of the major urban centers of the United States including Boston, New York, Washington, Chicago, New Orleans, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle—are on a coast (fig. 1.1). All of these cities discharge treated sewage effluent into adjacent waters. In 2000, 74 percent of the U.S. population lived within 200 kilometers (km) of the coast. Between 1980 and 2002, the population density in coastal communities increased approximately 4.5 times faster than in noncoastal areas of the U.S. (Perkins, 2004). More people generate larger volumes of wastes, increase the demands on wastewater treatment, expand the area of impervious land surfaces, and use more vehicles that contribute contaminants to street runoff. According to the National Coastal Condition Report II (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2005a), on the basis of coastal habitat, water and sediment quality, benthic index, and fish tissue, the overall national coastal condition is only poor to fair and the overall coastal condition in the highly populated Northeast is poor. Scientific information helps managers to prioritize and regulate coastal-ocean uses that include recreation, commercial fishing, transportation, waste disposal, and critical habitat for marine organisms. These uses are often in conflict with each other and with environmental concerns. Developing a strategy for managing competing uses while maintaining sustainability of coastal resources requires scientific understanding of how the coastal ocean system behaves and how it responds to anthropogenic influences. This report provides a summary of a multidisciplinary research program designed to improve our understanding of the transport and fate of contaminants in Massachusetts coastal waters. Massachusetts Bay and Boston Harbor have been a focus of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research because they provide a diverse geographic setting for developing a scientific understanding of the geology, geochemistry, and oceanography of coastal systems in general. Scientific data from this region can also be used to inform decisions about important economic, environmental, and political issues. From the economic viewpoint, the annual value of tourism and shipping in Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays is about $1.5 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively. Commercial and recreational fishing generates about $240 million per year in the same region (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2005b). The environmental issue is the 300-year history of waste discharge from the Boston metropolitan area into the harbor. This history is punctuated by cycles of environmental degradation, public outcry, and improvements in the sewage treatment system. With each improvement, however, the continuous growth of population in greater Boston (fig. 1.2) and the resulting increase in the volume of waste exceeded the capacity of the treatment system, thereby setting the stage for a new contamination crisis. By the 1980s, the levels of contaminants in sediments of Boston Harbor were among the highest in the nation (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 1987). Fish were diseased, shellfish beds were closed, and swimming beaches were unsafe after heavy rains; in general, water quality and aesthetics were below acceptable standards. Legal and political issues have always been part of Boston Harbor’s history. The environmental conditions in the 1980s were highlighted in a 1983 legal suit brought by the city of Quincy against the Metropolitan District Commission (MDC, the state agency responsible for sewage treatment) and heads of three state agencies for discharging untreated or poorly treated sewage into the harbor (Dolin, 2004). The suit never went to trial, but through the actions of a Massachusetts Superior Court, the issue of Boston Harbor contamination remained on the political and public agenda. The judge called the harbor “unsafe, unsanitary, indecent, in violation of the law (Clean Water Act), and a danger to the health and welfare of the people” (Forman, 1984). To force the state legislature to implement

Volcanic origin of the Boston Bay Group, Massachusetts  

SciTech Connect

The Boston Bay Group of sedimentary rocks is composed of, in stratigraphic order, the Roxbury Conglomerate and the Cambridge Argillite. The Roxbury is subdivided into the following members; Brighton, Dorchester, and Squantum. A glacial origin for the Squantun Formation, as well as the rest of the Boston Bay Group, has been accepted by most geologists. The Squantum was believed to be a tillite and the Brighton Member a glacial outwash deposit. The Brighton and Cambridge were believed to be deposited in a glacial-lacustrine setting. In a number of ways, the glacial model fails to account for many features here. The Lynn and Mattapan felsites occur widely in the Boston area, are roughly the same age as the Boston Bay Group, and, in on locality, grade upward into the Brookline Member. From 15 to 40 percent of the clasts in both the Squantum and the Brookline are of volcanic origin. Clasts of plutonic rock are also abundant in both units. Glass shards have been reported in the Cambridge. Finally, the color of both the Cambridge and the Squantum resembles that of the volcanic rocks in the area. This evidence indicates that the Boston Bay Group was formed in a volcanic environment, with the sediments deposited primarily in water. The Brookline Member resembles submarine fan deposits. The convolute laminae of the Dorchester are deformed turbidites. The Squantum Member is a submarine debris flow, and the Cambridge Argillite was deposited from turbidity flows which contained abundant volcanic ash.

A GIS Library of Multibeam Data for Massachusetts Bay and the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Offshore of Boston, Massachusetts  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Introduction The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has mapped the sea floor of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and western Massachusetts Bay, offshore of Boston, Massachusetts (figure 1a, figure 1b). The mapping was carried out using a Simrad Subsea EM1000 Multibeam Echo Sounder (95 kHz) on the Frederick G. Creed on four cruises between 1994 and 1998. The mapping was conducted in cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and with support from the Canadian Hydrographic Service and the University of New Brunswick. This GIS Library contains images and grids of bathymetry, shaded relief bathymetry, and backscatter intensity data from these surveys in an Environmental Systems Research Institute (http://www.esri.com) (ESRI) ArcMap 9.1 Geographic Information System (GIS) project. The shapefiles, images, grids and associated metadata may also be downloaded individually. Descriptions and interpretations of the data are available in a series of published maps.

Pleistocene stratigraphy of the Boston Harbor drumlins, Massachusetts  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Evidence from the Boston Harbor drumlins indicates that two superposed tills were deposited during glacier advances which were separated by a long nonglacial interval. At Long and Peddocks Islands, argillans and truncated clay-filled fractures, along with discontinuities in clay-mineral composition, define the till contacts. Physical indicators separating the tills are not apparent at other exposures, where till boundaries were defined solely by discontinuities in clay-mineral composition. The weathering profile in the upper part of the lower till indicates extensive weathering under a climate similar to that of today, and probably similar to that of the Sangamon Interglaciation. The depth of the weathering profile, the sequence of clay-mineral alteration products, and the presence of pedogenic features in the upper part of the lower till are comparable to Sangamonian weathering profiles in the midwestern United States, implying that the lower till is Illinoian or older. ?? 1990.

The Long-Term Health Consequences of Relationship Violence in Adulthood: An Examination of Low-Income Women From Boston, Chicago, and San Antonio  

PubMed Central

Objectives. We examined the long-term health consequences of relationship violence in adulthood. Methods. Using data from the Welfare, Children, and Families project (1999 and 2001), a probability sample of 2402 low-income women with children living in disadvantaged neighborhoods in Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; and San Antonio, Texas, we predicted changes in the frequency of intoxication, psychological distress, and self-rated health over 2 years with baseline measures of relationship violence and a host of relevant background variables. Results. Our analyses showed that psychological aggression predicted increases in psychological distress, whereas minor physical assault and sexual coercion predicted increases in the frequency of intoxication. There was no evidence to suggest that relationship violence in adulthood predicted changes in self-rated health. Conclusions. Experiences with relationship violence beyond the formative and developmental years of childhood and adolescence can have far-reaching effects on the health status of disadvantaged urban women.

Long-Term Oceanographic Observations in Western Massachusetts Bay Offshore of Boston, Massachusetts: Data Report for 1989-2002  

USGS Publications Warehouse

This data report presents long-term oceanographic observations made in western Massachusetts Bay at two locations: (1) 42 deg 22.6' N., 70 deg 47.0' W. (Site A, 33 m water depth) from December 1989 through December 2002 (figure 1), and (2) 42 deg 9.8' N., 70 deg 38.4' W. (Site B, 21 m water depth) from October 1997 through December 2002. Site A is approximately 1 km south of the new ocean outfall that began discharging treated sewage effluent from the Boston metropolitan area into Massachusetts Bay on September 6, 2000. These long-term oceanographic observations have been collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in partnership with the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) and with logistical support from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG - http://www.uscg.mil). This report presents time series data through December 2002, updating a similar report that presented data through December 2000 (Butman and others, 2002). In addition, the Statistics and Mean Flow sections include some new plots and tables and the format of the report has been streamlined by combining yearly figures into single .pdfs. Figure 1 (PDF format) The long-term measurements are planned to continue at least through 2005. The long-term oceanographic observations at Sites A and B are part of a USGS study designed to understand the transport and long-term fate of sediments and associated contaminants in the Massachusetts bays. (See http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/project-pages/bostonharbor/ and Butman and Bothner, 1997.) The long-term observations document seasonal and inter-annual changes in currents, hydrography, and suspended-matter concentration in western Massachusetts Bay, and the importance of infrequent catastrophic events, such as major storms or hurricanes, in sediment resuspension and transport. They also provide observations for testing numerical models of circulation. This data report presents a description of the field program and instrumentation, an overview of the data through summary plots and statistics, and the data in NetCDF and ASCII format for the period December 1989 through December 2002 for Site A and October 1997 through December 2002 for Site B. The objective of this report is to make the data available in digital form and to provide summary plots and statistics to facilitate browsing of the long-term data set.

The impact on gun-related crime of legislative changes involving Massachusetts' Gun Control Law is evaluated. Viewing crime rates as realizations from some underlying stochastic processes, a procedure for measuring intervention effects on crime rates is presented. Time series on gun-related crimes for the city of Boston are analyzed with this procedure in evaluating the impact of the gun control law.

High-resolution geologic mapping of the inner continental shelf: Boston Harbor and approaches, Massachusetts  

USGS Publications Warehouse

This report presents the surficial geologic framework data and information for the sea floor of Boston Harbor and Approaches, Massachusetts (fig. 1.1). This mapping was conducted as part of a cooperative program between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The primary objective of this project was to provide sea floor geologic information and maps of Boston Harbor to aid resource management, scientific research, industry and the public. A secondary objective was to test the feasibility of using NOAA hydrographic survey data, normally collected to update navigation charts, to create maps of the sea floor suitable for geologic and habitat interpretations. Defining sea-floor geology is the first steps toward managing ocean resources and assessing environmental changes due to natural or human activity. The geophysical data for these maps were collected as part of hydrographic surveys carried out by NOAA in 2000 and 2001 (fig. 1.2). Bottom photographs, video, and samples of the sediments were collected in September 2004 to help in the interpretation of the geophysical data. Included in this report are high-resolution maps of the sea floor, at a scale of 1:25,000; the data used to create these maps in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) format; a GIS project; and a gallery of photographs of the sea floor. Companion maps of sea floor to the north Boston Harbor and Approaches are presented by Barnhardt and others (2006) and to the east by Butman and others (2003a,b,c). See Butman and others (2004) for a map of Massachusetts Bay at a scale of 1:125,000. The sections of this report are listed in the navigation bar along the left-hand margin of this page. Section 1 (this section) introduces the report. Section 2 presents the large-format map sheets. Section 3 describes data collection, processing, and analysis. Section 4 summarizes the geologic history of the region and discusses geomorphic and anthropogenic features within the study area. Section 4 also provides references that contain additional information about the region. Appendix 1 provides GIS layers of all the data collected in this study, Appendix 2 contains the grain size textural analyses of sediment samples, and Appendix 3 contains bottom photographs of the sea floor in JPG format.

The relationship between neighborhood socioeconomic characteristics and physical inactivity among adolescents living in Boston, massachusetts.  

PubMed

Objectives. We sought to determine whether the socioeconomic environment was associated with no participation in physical activity among adolescents in Boston, Massachusetts. Methods. We used cross-sectional data from 1878 urban adolescents living in 38 neighborhoods who participated in the 2008 Boston Youth Survey, a biennial survey of high school students (aged 14-19 years). We used multilevel multiple regression models to determine the association between neighborhood-level exposures of economic deprivation, social fragmentation, social cohesion, danger and disorder, and students' reports of no participation in physical activity in the previous week. Results. High social fragmentation within the residential neighborhood was associated with an increased likelihood of being inactive (odds ratio?=?1.53; 95% confidence interval?=?1.14, 2.05). No other neighborhood exposures were associated with physical inactivity. Conclusions. Social fragmentation might be an important correlate of physical inactivity among youths living in urban settings. Interventions might be needed to assist youths living in unstable neighborhoods to be physically active. PMID:25211727

Marital structure of the Italian community of Boston, Massachusetts, 1880-1920.  

PubMed

The marital structure of Italians living in Boston, Massachusetts, in the period 1880-1920 was studied in order to explore the integration process in the urban context. The study analyses endogamy and inbreeding, using data on 15,579 marriages from the parish books of the three Italian parishes of Boston. Endogamic rates are very high and increased in time, ranging from 93.9% to 97.3%. This correlated with the growth of the Italian community and the decline of the biased sex ratio. One parish, Our Lady of Pompeii in the South End, displays lower endogamic rates because of the reduced and scattered population attending it. The rate of consanguineous (2.33%) and isonymous (6.38%) marriages, and the coefficients of inbreeding, alpha (0.98 x 10(-3)) and Ft (0.0159), are similar to those of north Italian populations, and lower than those for south and insular Italy. The parish of Our Lady of Pompeii shows consistently higher values than the other two parishes. Marriages between first and second cousins are the main cause of the above values in each parish. Consanguineous marriages and inbreeding increased over time, from the 1890s, and this is in general agreement, although slightly delayed, with the Italian trend. PMID:9881134

Characterization of urban methane emissions in Boston, Massachusetts using an observational network and inverse modeling framework  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

There is much uncertainty about the magnitude of methane emissions from natural gas production and delivery infrastructure, yet this quantity is necessary for understanding the climate impact of natural gas as a major fuel source and for partitioning the global methane budget. Preliminary evidence suggests that leaks from urban natural gas distribution systems may release substantial quantities of methane to the atmosphere, but this source has seldom been directly investigated in the scientific literature. As a case study, we seek to describe and quantify the natural gas fraction of the total methane source in the Boston, Massachusetts metropolitan region. We describe the design of an atmospheric methane monitoring network in and around the city. Periodic measurements of atmospheric ethane are used to estimate the fractional contribution of natural gas to the total observed urban methane enhancement. A methane emission inventory is compiled from high-resolution information on biogenic methane sources, street-level methane concentrations, and the natural gas distribution infrastructure. We present preliminary results from the observational network and an inverse modeling framework.

Neoplasms and nonneoplastic liver lesions in winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, from Boston Harbor, Massachusetts.  

PubMed Central

A variety of neoplasms and nonneoplastic hepatic lesions have been noted in winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, from Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. Inflammatory lesions include cholangiitis, pericholangiitis, pericholangial fibrosis, hepatitis, and pancreatitis. Necrotic lesions consist essentially of focal coagulative necrosis and a distinctive vacuolated cell lesion of the hepatic parenchyma. The most conspicuous and numerous proliferative lesion is macrophage aggregate hyperplasia and hypertrophy. Preneoplastic lesions include principally basophilic foci of cellular alteration and hepatocellular adenoma. Carcinomas consist of several morphologic varieties: hepatocarcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and anaplastic adenocarcinoma. The pathogenesis of the lesions observed is discussed with respect to anthropogenically introduced chemical contaminants and the resistant hepatocyte model of hepatocarcinogenesis. This study, and others of bottom-living food fish with enzootic neoplastic disease, warrants further evaluation, particularly with respect to possible bioaccumulation of chemical contaminants in edible tissues.

Fish assemblage responses to urban intensity gradients in contrasting metropolitan areas: Birmingham, Alabama and Boston, Massachusetts  

USGS Publications Warehouse

We examined fish assemblage responses to urban intensify gradients in two contrasting metropolitan areas: Birmingham, Alabama (BIR) and Boston, Massachusetts (BOS). Urbanization was quantified by using an urban intensity index (UII) that included multiple stream buffers and basin land uses, human population density, and road density variables. We evaluated fish assemblage responses by using species richness metrics and detrended correspondence analyses (DCA). Fish species richness metrics included total fish species richness, and percentages of endemic species richness, alien species, and fluvial specialist species. Fish species richness decreased significantly with increasing urbanization in BIR (r = -0.82, P = 0.001) and BOS (r = -0.48, P = 0.008). Percentages of endemic species richness decreased significantly with increasing urbanization only in BIR (r = - 0.71, P = 0.001), whereas percentages of fluvial specialist species decreased significantly with increasing urbanization only in BOS (r = -0.56, P = 0.002). Our DCA results for BIR indicate that highly urbanized fish assemblages are composed primarily of largescale stoneroller Campostoma oligolepis, largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides, and creek chub Semotilus atromaculatus, whereas the highly urbanized fish assemblages in BOS are dominated by yellow perch Perca flavescens, bluegill Lefomis macrochirus, yellow bullhead Ameiurus natalis, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed L. gibbosus, brown bullhead A. nebulosus, and redfin pickerel Esox americanus. Differences in fish assemblage responses to urbanization between the two areas appear to be related to differences in nutrient enrichment, habitat alterations, and invasive species. Because species richness can increase or decrease with increasing urbanization, a general response model is not applicable. Instead, response models based on species' life histories, behavior, and autecologies offer greater potential for understanding fish assemblage responses to urbanization. ?? 2005 by the American Fisheries Society.

Use of linked models to describe transport and distribution of trace metals in Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Transport of Cu and Pb in Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay was simulated using a previously developed three dimensional hydrodynamic model. The model has been used and refined over a period of 10 years and has proven to be a useful tool to simulate physical parameters in the Bay. In this study, trace elements are integrated into the hydrodynamic model to predict annual or monthly mean trace metal distributions in the water column. We verify model predicted results using historical and recent observational data in Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay, exploring the influence of key sources and sinks affecting trace metal distribution, and then link observed water column distributions to surface sediment concentrations of Cu using a dynamic sediment-water equilibrium model. Results of initial model runs for Cu compared well with observed surface sediment data. The linked models show promise as a powerful tool to better understand system responses to varying source strengths and biogeochemical processes controlling trace element transport, distribution and fate in coastal marine environments.

The Effects of Biogeography on Ant Diversity and Activity on the Boston Harbor Islands, Massachusetts, U.S.A  

PubMed Central

Many studies have examined how island biogeography affects diversity on the scale of island systems. In this study, we address how diversity varies over very short periods of time on individual islands. To do this, we compile an inventory of the ants living in the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area, Boston, Massachusetts, USA using data from a five-year All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory of the region's arthropods. Consistent with the classical theory of island biogeography, species richness increased with island size, decreased with island isolation, and remained relatively constant over time. Additionally, our inventory finds that almost half of the known Massachusetts ant fauna can be collected in the BHI, and identifies four new species records for Massachusetts, including one new to the United States, Myrmica scabrinodis. We find that the number of species actually active on islands depended greatly on the timescale under consideration. The species that could be detected during any given week of sampling could by no means account for total island species richness, even when correcting for sampling effort. Though we consistently collected the same number of species over any given week of sampling, the identities of those species varied greatly between weeks. This variation does not result from local immigration and extinction of species, nor from seasonally-driven changes in the abundance of individual species, but rather from weekly changes in the distribution and activity of foraging ants. This variation can be upwards of 50% of ant species per week. This suggests that numerous ant species on the BHI share the same physical space at different times. This temporal partitioning could well explain such unexpectedly high ant diversity in an isolated, urban site. PMID:22140504

Three-dimensional modeling of Cu and Pb distributions in Boston Harbor, Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The transport and distribution of dissolved Cu (Cu diss) and Pb (Pb diss) in Boston Harbor (BH), Massachusetts Bay (MB) and Cape Cod Bay (CCB) were simulated using an existing three-dimensional hydrodynamic model. Treatment of Cu diss as a conservative tracer produced model results in good agreement with observational data in MB and CCB. Pb diss was modeled as a non-conservative tracer using particulate organic carbon (POC) extracted from a water quality model as the sorption and scavenging matrix for particulate Pb. Despite cessation of discharge from a major treatment plant in 2000 and concurrent reduction in metal loading, Cu diss and Pb diss concentrations in the Harbor remained relatively unchanged between 1998 and 2002. In contrast model results produced water column concentrations in Boston Harbor that were about 10% of the observed current standing stock of Cu diss and only about 20% of Pb diss in 2002. Both field observations and model results incorporating Cu and Pb benthic fluxes suggest that release of these metals from the previously contaminated sediments of the Harbor is now the major source of these metals to the Harbor.

Methane source identification in Boston, Massachusetts using isotopic and ethane measurements  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Methane has substantial greenhouse warming potential and is the principle component of natural gas. Fugitive natural gas emissions could be a significant source of methane to the atmosphere. However, the cumulative magnitude of natural gas leaks is not yet well constrained. We used a combination of point source measurements and ambient monitoring to characterize the methane sources in the Boston urban area. We developed distinct fingerprints for natural gas and multiple biogenic methane sources based on hydrocarbon concentration and isotopic composition. We combine these data with periodic measurements of atmospheric methane and ethane concentration to estimate the fractional contribution of natural gas and biogenic methane sources to the cumulative urban methane flux in Boston. These results are used to inform an inverse model of urban methane concentration and emissions.

A 1,000-year, annually-resolved record of hurricane activity from Boston, Massachusetts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The annually-laminated (i.e., varved) sediment record from the Lower Mystic Lake (near Boston, MA), contains a series of anomalous graded beds deposited by strong flooding events that have affected the basin over the last millennium. From the historic portion of the record, 10 out of 11 of the most prominent graded beds correspond with years in which category 2-3 hurricanes are known to have struck the Boston area. Thus, we conclude that the graded beds represent deposition related to intense hurricane precipitation combined with wind-driven vegetation disturbance that exposes fresh, loose sediment. The hurricane signal shows strong, centennial-scale variations in frequency with a period of increased activity between the 12th-16th centuries, and decreased activity during the 11th and 17th-19th centuries. These frequency changes are consistent with other paleoclimate indicators from the tropical North Atlantic, in particular, sea surface temperature variations.

Multi-zonal air flow rates in residences in Boston, Massachusetts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In spite of the importance of interzonal air flow for indoor air quality assessment, few studies have characterized these flows. As part of the Boston Exposure Assessment in Microenvironments (BEAM) Study, air flow rates were estimated within 45 residences in the Boston area, most over two seasons. Thirty-five residences had basements, 11 of which also had attached garages, and 10 other residences had common apartment hallways. Air flow rates between zones were calculated using tracer gases (PFTs and SF6) and mass-balance models. Mean air flow rates from the basement to the occupied zone were significantly higher in the winter (174 m 3 h -1) than in the summer (67 m 3 h -1). The mean percent of the total air flow within the occupied zone of the residence from the basement was 26% (SD=34%) in the summer and 47% (SD=26%) in the winter while the mean percent from apartment hallways was 22% (SD=33%). Residences with garages attached to the basement had higher air flow rates to the adjacent zone (means from 50 to 887 m 3 h -1) than those with garages attached directly to the occupied zone (means from 1 to 65 m 3 h -1). These data provide a basis for modeling the contribution of indoor sources to concentrations in occupied zones.

Effects of urbanization on benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages in contrasting environmental settings: Boston, Massachusetts; Birmingham, Alabama; and Salt Lake City, Utah  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Responses of invertebrate assemblages along gradients of urban intensity were examined in three metropolitan areas with contrasting climates and topography (Boston, Massachusetts; Birmingham, Alabama; Salt Lake City, Utah). Urban gradients were defined using an urban intensity index (UII) derived from basin-scale population, infrastructure, land-use, land-cover, and socioeconomic characteristics. Responses based on assemblage metrics, indices of biotic integrity (B-IBI), and ordinations were readily detected in all three urban areas and many responses could be accurately predicted simply using regional UIIs. Responses to UII were linear and did not indicate any initial resistance to urbanization. Richness metrics were better indicators of urbanization than were density metrics. Metrics that were good indicators were specific to each study except for a richness-based tolerance metric (TOLr) and one B-IBI. Tolerances to urbanization were derived for 205 taxa. These tolerances differed among studies and with published tolerance values, but provided similar characterizations of site conditions. Basin-scale land-use changes were the most important variables for explaining invertebrate responses to urbanization. Some chemical and instream physical habitat variables were important in individual studies, but not among studies. Optimizing the study design to detect basin-scale effects may have reduced the ability to detect local-scale effects. ?? 2005 by the American Fisheries Society.

Urban Carbon Dioxide Concentration and Flux Measurements from a Building Rooftop in Boston, Massachusetts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Carbon dioxide concentrations and fluxes have been measured with an open path infrared gas analyzer (IRGA, Licor LI-7500) and sonic anemometer (Campbell CSAT) installed on a 1.8 m tower on top of a building (675 Commonwealth Ave) at Boston University since October, 2007. The flux data was transformed with a double rotation scheme that sets the vertical wind to zero. The resulting vertical rotation angle shows a clear dependence on the building geometry when plotted against wind direction. In addition, gaps in wind direction are observed due to wind shadowing from nearby taller buildings (the BU residential dorm towers on Commonwealth Ave). Although there are limitations on the dataset imposed by the non-ideal flux conditions, the fluxes do respond to the weekend effect. Considering data until the end of August, 2009, the carbon dioxide emissions are over twice as great on weekdays compared to weekends (0.131 mg m-2 s-1 verses 0.056 mg m-2 s-1). The weekend effect is also apparent in diurnal concentration data, which does not depend on meeting eddy flux criteria and corresponds to a much larger footprint. Considering monthly averages of diurnal cycles of carbon dioxide concentration, hourly bins on weekdays range from no increase to 30 ppm higher than weekend days. The diurnal weekend effect is typically largest during the early morning hours before the breakup of the nocturnal boundary layer. The weekend effect depends strongly on meteorological conditions and boundary layer mixing. Throughout the year, some months show differences of less than 10 ppm throughout the diurnal cycle. Carbon dioxide concentrations and the weekend effect are also impacted by wind direction. During the summer months, there is evidence for a land-sea breeze diurnal cycle in the wind data, and this impacts observed carbon dioxide concentrations.

Effectiveness of three best management practices for highway-runoff quality along the Southeast Expressway, Boston, Massachusetts  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Best management practices (BMPs) near highways are designed to reduce the amount of suspended sediment and associated constituents, including debris and litter, discharged from the roadway surface. The effectiveness of a deep-sumped hooded catch basin, three 2-chambered 1,500-gallon oil-grit separators, and mechanized street sweeping in reducing sediment and associated constituents was examined along the Southeast Expressway (Interstate Route 93) in Boston, Massachusetts. Repeated observations of the volume and distribution of bottom material in the oil-grit separators, including data on particle-size distributions, were compared to data from bottom material deposited during the initial 3 years of operation. The performance of catch-basin hoods and the oil-grit separators in reducing floating debris was assessed by examining the quantity of material retained by each structural BMP compared to the quantity of material retained by and discharged from the oil-grit separators, which received flow from the catch basins. The ability of each structural BMP to reduce suspended-sediment loads was assessed by examining (a) the difference in the concentrations of suspended sediment in samples collected simultaneously from the inlet and outlet of each BMP, and (b) the difference between inlet loads and outlet loads during a 14-month monitoring period for the catch basin and one separator, and a 10-month monitoring period for the second separator. The third separator was not monitored continuously; instead, samples were collected from it during three visits separated in time by several months. Suspended-sediment loads for the entire study area were estimated on the basis of the long-term average annual precipitation and the estimated inlet and outlet loads of two of the separators. The effects of mechanized street sweeping were assessed by evaluating the differences between suspended-sediment loads before and after street sweeping, relative to storm precipitation totals, and by comparing the particle-size distributions of sediment samples collected from the sweepers to bottom-material samples collected from the structural BMPs. A mass-balance calculation was used to quantify the accuracy of the estimated sediment-removal efficiency for each structural BMP. The ability of each structural BMP to reduce concentrations of inorganic and organic constituents was assessed by determining the differences in concentrations between the inlets and outlets of the BMPs for four storms. The inlet flows of the separators were sampled during five storms for analysis of fecal-indicator bacteria. The particle-size distribution of bottom material found in the first and second chambers of the separators was similar for all three separators. Consistent collection of floatable debris at the outlet of one separator during 12 storms suggests that floatable debris were not indefinitely retained.Concentrations of suspended sediment in discrete samples of runoff collected from the inlets of the two separators ranged from 8.5 to 7,110 mg/L. Concentrations of suspended sediment in discrete samples of runoff collected from the outlets of the separators ranged from 5 to 2,170 mg/L. The 14-month sediment-removal efficiency was 35 percent for one separator, and 28 percent for the second separator. In the combined-treatment system in this study, where catch basins provided primary suspended-sediment treatment, the separators reduced the mass of the suspended sediment from the pavement by about an additional 18 percent. The concentrations of suspended sediment in discrete samples of runoff collected from the inlet of the catch basin ranged from 32 to 13,600 mg/L. Concentrations of suspended sediment in discrete samples of runoff collected from the outlet of the catch basin ranged from 25.7 to 7,030 mg/L. The sediment-removal efficiency for individual storms during the 14-month monitoring period for the deep-sumped hooded catch basin was 39 percent.The concentrations of 29 in

Perpetration of Physical Assault Against Dating Partners, Peers, and Siblings Among a Locally Representative Sample of High School Students in Boston, Massachusetts  

PubMed Central

Objectives To assess the co-occurrence of past-month physical assault of a dating partner and violence against peers and siblings among a locally representative sample of high school students and to explore correlates of dating violence (DV) perpetration. Design Cross-sectional survey design. Setting Twenty-two public high schools in Boston, Massachusetts. Participants A sample of urban high school students (n = 1398) who participated in the Boston Youth Survey, implemented January through April of 2008. Main Outcomes Measures Self-reported physical DV in the month before the survey, defined as pushing, shoving, slapping, hitting, punching, kicking, or choking a dating partner 1 or more times. Results Among the respondents, 18.7%, 41.2%, and 31.2% of students reported past-month perpetration of physical DV, peer violence, and sibling violence, respectively. Among violence perpetrators, the perpetration of DV only was rare (7.9%). Controlling for age and school, the association between sibling violence and DV was strong for boys (adjusted prevalence ratio, 3.81;95% confidence interval, 2.07-6.99) and for girls (1.83; 1.44-2.31), and the association between peer violence and DV perpetration was strong for boys (5.13; 3.15-8.35) and for girls (2.57; 1.87-3.52). Dating violence perpetration was also associated with substance use, knife carrying, delinquency, and exposure to community violence. Conclusions Adolescents who perpetrated physical DV were also likely to have perpetrated peer and/or sibling violence. Dating violence is likely one of many co-occurring adolescent problem behaviors, including sibling and peer violence perpetration, substance use, weapon carrying, and academic problems.

Effectiveness of catch basins equipped with hoods in retaining gross solids and hydrocarbons in highway runoff, Southeast Expressway, Boston, Massachusetts, 2008-09  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Stormwater mobilizes litter and other debris along the roadway where it is transported to the highway drainage systems. Initial treatment for stormwater runoff typically is provided by catch basins in highway settings. Modification of catch basins to include hoods that cover the catch-basin outlet is intended to enhance catch-basin performance by retaining floatable debris and various hydrophobic organic compounds that tend to float on the water surface within the sump of the catch basin. The effectiveness of six deep-sump off-line catch basins equipped with hoods in reducing the mass of gross solids greater than 0.25 inches in diameter and concentrations of oil and grease (OG) and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) was examined along the Southeast Expressway, in Boston, Massachusetts. Two deep-sump catch basins were equipped with cast-iron hoods. Three were equipped with molded plastic hoods, known as an Eliminator, and a single catch basin was equipped with a fiberglass anti-siphoning hood, known as a Snout. Samples of gross solids greater than 0.25 inches in diameter, excluding gravel and metallic materials, were routinely collected for a 6-month period from a collection structure mounted at the end of each catch-basin outlet pipe. After about 6 months, all floatable, saturated low-density and high-density solids were removed from each catch basin. In addition to the collection of samples of gross solids, samples of sump water from five catch basins and flow-weighted composite samples of stormwater from the outlet of one catch basin were collected and analyzed for concentrations of OG and TPH. A mass balance approach was used to assess the effectiveness of each catch basin equipped with a hood in retaining gross solids. The effectiveness of the deep-sump catch basins fitted with one of three types of hoods in retaining gross solids ranged from 27 to 52 percent. From 45 to 90 percent of the gross solids collected from the catch-basin sumps were composed of materials made of high-density plastics that did not float in water, and as a result, the effect that the catch-basin hoods had on these materials likely was marginal. The effectiveness for the deep-sump hooded catch basins, excluding the mass of high-density materials identified in the solids collected from the outlet pipe and the sump of the catch basins, ranged from 13 to 38 percent. The effectiveness for each catch basin, based solely on the material that remained floating at the end of the monitoring period, was less than 11 percent; however, these values likely underestimate the effectiveness of the hooded catch basins because much of the low-density material collected from the sumps may have been retained as floatable material before it was saturated and settled during non-storm conditions. The effectiveness of the catch basins equipped with hoods in reducing gross solids was not greatly different among the three types of hoods tested in this study. Concentrations of OG and TPH collected from the water surface of the catch-basins varied from catch basin to catch basin and were similar to concentrations of flow-weighted composite samples collected during storms. Comparisons indicate concentrations of OG and TPH in flow-weighted composite samples collected at the outlet of a catch basin equipped with an Eliminator hood were not substantially different from concentrations of the respective constituents in flow-weighted composite samples collected during a previous study from catch basins containing cast-iron hoods in the same study area. The similarity between these flow-weighted concentrations and the concentrations of the respective constituents in a vertical profile sample collected from the catch-basin sump indicates that OG and TPH are emulsified in the sump of each catch basin during storms and circumvent the hoods.

Modal Petrology and Geostatistics of the Blue Hills Igneous Complex, Boston, Massachusetts, by Rietveld X-ray Diffraction: Multi-scalar Investigation of Volcanic and Intrusive Relationships  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Blue Hills Igneous Complex of eastern Massachusetts consists of mildly peralkaline volcanic and intrusive units including the Quincy Granite, the Blue Hills Porphyry, and a set of mainly pyroclastic rhyolite flow units traditionally called the Aporhyolite. Similar whole-rock chemistry has led most workers to assume that they are related rocks, despite some unclear field relationships. Kaktins (1976) divided the volcanic rocks into six units, but buried contacts do not permit confidence in either their number or stratigraphic position. To test a new method of modal analysis of these rocks, thirty-five samples were crushed, ground to approximately 5 micrometers, spray-dried to produce randomly oriented powder, and analyzed by x-ray diffraction. A constant eleven-phase Rietveld starting model was applied to the x-ray spectra, and then refined to produce a modal database of phase proportions in each sample. Geostatistical analysis with GIS software delineates a number of trends, with statistical measures of uncertainty. Aegirine in volcanics decreases in abundance with distance south from the E-W contact of volcanic rocks and granite. Riebeckite is found in the granite (both as veins and as apparently magmatic crystals) and the porphyry, but is less abundant or absent among the volcanic rocks. Where both amphibole and pyroxene are present, they are negatively correlated. The goal is to develop an additional tool for correlation of volcanic rocks, one based on mineral proportions in both aphanitic and phaneritic rocks.

The Boston Harbor Sewage Stack is interactive educational computer program about how municipalities deal with sewage, how sewage systems work, non point pollution, and what citizens can do to help - focusing on Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Cleanup. The program is written at a level accessible to middle-school students, but with enough depth for adults. Schools and environmental organizations, especially in coastal areas, will find this program a useful addition to their environmental education offerings. The program shows what happens to sewage - from the moment of flush to its passage through the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority's sewage system and into Boston Harbor - now and as the cleanup proceeds. Users encounter topics for exploration, including storm sewers and combined sewer overflows (CSOs); non point pollution from pets, spilled waste oil, lawn and garden chemicals, and other sources; what not to flush and why; how officials can tell if water is polluted; and why it all matters.

My Chicago  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

How does one get to know Chicago? It might be through word of mouth, a compelling website, or through a well-known work of fiction by Nelson Algren or Richard Wright. Another way would be to watch a few segments of My Chicago, a program offered by WTTW, the PBS station that serves the Chicagoland area. The program started in 2014 and it features Chicagoans, well-known or other, talking about the neighborhoods where they live and work. Thus far the series has profiled Chicago Tribune writer Mary Schmich, comedian Brian Babylon, and local grocery store owner Bob Mariano. Interested parties can also read an in-house blog and nominate folks they think should be included in a future program. It's a neat idea for those who love cities and it might inspire other series in cities large and small.

Maritime History of Massachusetts  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

From Newburyport all the way to New Bedford, Massachusetts has many places steeped in a rich and interesting maritime past. Recently, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places and Maritime Heritage Program created this interactive guide to the maritime history of the Bay State. The site spares no punches, as it opens with a lovely photograph of the Boston Light Station on Little Brewster Island, complete with some very appropriate sound effects. Visitors can explore the sites through a series of interactive maps and then read four essays that deal with maritime commerce, shipbuilding, the U.S. Navy, and lighthouses and lifesaving stations. For each site, visitors can read a brief history and learn more about visiting each destination. It's a great way to learn about this particular part of the United States, and it could serve as the inspiration for a nice vacation as well.

Teen Chicago  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Different generations of teenagers have very different impressions of that precarious time of life where peers offer unsolicited suggestions on fashion and still others are immersed in the ever-expanding world of popular music. This site, developed by the Chicago Historical Society, offers a host of very different experiences on the teenage lifestyle through past decades. The creation of the site came about as part of a three-year project sponsored by the Society to study "how teenagers affect Chicago's history, and how growing up in Chicago affects the way people think, act and feel". The online exhibit portion of the site is divided into four primary sections, respectively titled "Work", "School, "Home", and "Play". Each section features short essays on such subjects as growing up as a teenager in a close-knit family or working as a young person, coupled with various photographic materials. Additionally, visitors can submit their own memories of their teenage years, and listen to some great audio clips of others interviewed for the project as they talk about their own youthful experiences.

Review of Oceanographic and Geochemical Data Collected in Massachusetts Bay during a Large Discharge of Total Suspended Solids from Boston's Sewage-Treatment System and Ocean Outfall in August 2002  

USGS Publications Warehouse

During the period August 14-23, 2002, the discharge of total suspended solids (TSS) from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority sewage-treatment plant ranged from 32 to 132 milligrams per liter, causing the monthly average discharge to exceed the limit specified in the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit. Time-series monitoring data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in western Massachusetts Bay were examined to evaluate changes in environmental conditions during and after this exceedance event. The rate of sediment trapping and the concentrations of near-bottom suspended sediment measured near the outfall in western Massachusetts Bay increased during this period. Because similar increases in sediment-trapping rate were observed in the summers of 2003 and 2004, however, the increase in 2002 cannot be definitively attributed to the increased TSS discharge. Concentrations of copper and silver in trapped sediment collected 10 and 20 days following the 2002 TSS event were elevated compared to those in pre-event samples. Maximum concentrations were less than 50 percent of toxicity guidelines. Photographs of surficial bottom sediments obtained before and after the TSS event do not show sediment accumulation on the sea floor. Concentrations of silver, Clostridium perfringens, and clay in surficial bottom sediments sampled 10 weeks after the discharge event at a depositional site 3 kilometers west of the outfall were unchanged from those in samples obtained before the event. Simulation of the TSS event by using a coupled hydrodynamic-wave-sediment-transport model could enhance understanding of these observations and of the effects of the exceedance on the local marine environment.

Forgotten Chapters of Boston's Literary History  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

People may know about Longfellow and Poe, but do they know about the ongoing literary feud between these two sons of New England? They will after perusing this marvelous digital exhibit from the Boston Public Library and the Massachusetts Historical Society, which explores some of the "forgotten chapters" of the Hub's literary history. Designed to complement an in situ exhibit, this collection contains six thematic sections, along with an audio introduction and an interactive map of said literary history. The sections include "The Poet Buried on Boston Common," "Buried Treasure and Turkeys," and "The First Seasons of the Federal Street Theatre." The "Poet" area is quite a find, as it profiles the work of Charles Sprague, a Boston poet of the 19th century who is little-remembered today. The "Buried Treasure" area features rediscovered literary pieces (and some that should have stayed hidden) from the literary magazines published in Boston between 1790 and 1860. One the unearthed gems is "A Winter Walk," which was originally published under the nom de plume Anonymous, but which was later revealed to have been penned by Henry David Thoreau. Lastly, the section titled "Longfellow's Serenity and Poe's Prediction" takes on the literary brouhaha that existed between Longfellow and Poe in the 1830s and 1840s.

Freeman Allen: Boston's Pioneering Physician Anesthetist.  

PubMed

On October 16, 1846 dentist William T. G. Morton successfully demonstrated at the Massachusetts General Hospital that ether could prevent the pain of surgery. For decades afterwards, the administration of anesthesia in the United States was generally relegated to dentists, medical students, junior surgical trainees, or even nonmedical personnel. It was not until the end of the 19th century that a few pioneering physicians began devoting their careers to administering anesthesia to patients, studying ways to make it safer and more effective, and teaching others about its use. One of these individuals was Freeman Allen, who was appointed the first physician anesthetist to the medical staff at the Massachusetts General Hospital and several other major hospitals in Boston. We describe this remarkable man, his contributions to the early development of anesthesiology as a medical specialty, and the true cause of his untimely death. PMID:25329027

Massachusetts Railroads

The first railroad in Massachusetts was chartered in 1826 and since that time the commonwealth has seen dozens of operators expand and contract their operations. Interestingly enough, by 1836 railroad corporations had to submit reports of their activities to the Secretary of the Commonwealth and in 1871 a Railroad Commission was established to oversee these companies. This wonderful digital collection from the Massachusetts State Library brings together dozens of maps, manuscripts, and annual reports related to the operations of these companies. The Maps area is remarkable as it features over 270 maps that document various railroad surveys from the mid 19th century to the early 20th century. Moving on, the Annual Reports area includes over 50 reports from the Public Service Commission that provide valuable insights into railroad operations. The Manuscripts are another great feature, as this section contains a range of acts that document the potential and realized ambitions of a range of small, medium, and large railroad companies, including the Dorchester and Milton Extension Railroad Company.

The Chicago Guide to Communicating Science

Frankly, I was offended at the outset by two things about this book: the title and the blurb about the author. It is one thing for the Chicago Press to put out a book on the technical details of style. After all, someone has to layout more than anyone would ever possibly need to know on the exactitudes of how to quote, reference, and punctuate. But what on Earth could Chicago ever tell us about how to write, review, and illustrate a scientific paper, proposal, or technical report? And, even more, what do they know about giving a riveting talk? Would this be the Midwestern version of how to present science? Will rival accounts follow from California, Massachusetts, and England? Who should we take seriously about something at which we already take ourselves to be masterful?

A New Look at the 1755 Cape Ann, Massachusetts Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The earthquake of 18 November 1755 (Julian date) is the most significant earthquake to have affected New England to date. It was widely felt along the Atlantic seaboard, and it caused damage at Boston and nearby communities. In this study the historic accounts of this earthquake have been reexamined to estimate the epicenter, magnitude and quantitative ground shaking of the event. The most abundant aftershock activity was felt along coastal New Hampshire, on south coastal Maine and in northeastern Massachusetts, indicating that those areas were closest to the epicenter. A remarkable description of the shaking by John Hyde from Boston suggests an S-P time of 7-10 s in Boston, which yields an epicentral distance of 60-80 km. A location for the 1755 epicenter about 40 km ENE of Cape Ann in an area where a number of recent instrumental epicenters have been detected is consistent with the felt aftershock activity and the Hyde S-P report. From the decay of MMI with distance, an Lg magnitude of 6.2 (moment magnitude about 5.8) is estimated for the earthquake. The peak ground accelerations for the 1755 event are estimated to have been: .20g-.09g at Gloucester, Massachusetts; .19g-.08g at York, Maine; and .14g-.06g at Boston, Massachusetts.

Massachusetts health care reform and orthopaedic trauma: lessons learned.  

PubMed

Massachusetts was the first state to implement its own version of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), when it passed the Massachusetts Health Care Reform (MHR) in 2006. Similar to the ACA, its explicit purpose was universal access to health care to all residents of Massachusetts. We believe that the influence of MHR on orthopaedic trauma in Massachusetts will have implications on trauma systems across the country, given the similarities between ACA and MHR. Therefore, in this article, we discuss our experiences as Orthopaedic trauma surgeons with regard to MHR. In this regard, we reviewed the effects of the implementation of MHR on the orthopaedic trauma services at 3 of the 4 level one trauma centers in Boston, MA. Our results demonstrate a dramatic reduction in the proportion of uncompensated care at these centers in addition to the number of uninsured patients with orthopaedic trauma injuries. PMID:25229681

What was Chicago like in the first decade or so of the twentieth century? More importantly, how was it mapped? This rather engaging map collection from the University of Chicago Library offers up almost two dozen maps documenting the railroads, parks, and rapid transit system of the Windy City as it existed during that frenetic time. Visitors can zoom in and out around these maps looking for details such as boulevards, El stations, and other bits and pieces of the built environment. For the casual user, the "School Map of Chicago" from 1914 is well worth a look, as is the "map of the business center of the city of Chicago" from 1905.

Digitial Collections: Boston College  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

John J. Burns Library, Rare Books and Special Collections at Boston College, offers some of its collections on the Web. The largest is the Liturgy and Life Collection, approximately 1,200 artifacts selected from perhaps the "most comprehensive archive in America on the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church." Also available are Boston Gas Company photos, about 400 images from the 1880s to the 1970s, documenting both the company and the city of Boston, and Thomas P. O'Neill Photographs, primarily from O'Neill's years as Speaker of the US House of Representatives. All of the databases allow browsing as well as searching, very helpful for users who do not know if Saint Christopher is entered as St. or Saint. Unlike other religious history collections, many of the pictures in Liturgy & Life are images of objects that people owned and carried in their pockets, such as the nineteen Saint Christopher medals that I located with the browse function. Be sure to check out the Gas Company collection's fascinating views of pre-1900 Boston, including over 200 cyanotypes that reproduce beautifully on the Web.

Jazz Institute of Chicago  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

For all the attention paid to the fantastic blues music that is often closely associated with Chicago, many people seem to forget that Chicago has also been fertile ground for jazz musicians as well. Some of the many famous musicians produced by the Second City include Gene Ammons, Eddie Harris, Benny Goodman, Von Freeman, Herbie Hancock, and numerous others. Of course, the Jazz Institute of Chicago has never forgotten this legacy, and for the past thirty years, they have been keeping the jazz spirit alive throughout the entire city. Additionally, the Institute has programmed the city's Jazz Festival since it began in 1979. Along with reading about upcoming events sponsored by the Institute and letters from fellow jazz fans, visitors can browse the Jazzgram.

Water System Resiliency: Lessons from Boston's 2010 Water Emergency  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On May 1, 2010, a ten foot diameter water pipe, the sole pipe supplying potable water to 2.2 million residents of Greater Boston, burst. Categorized as a "catastrophic" leak by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, Governor Deval Patrick declared a State of Emergency, mobilizing local, state and federal disaster responses. By May 4, 2010, a boil-water order was lifted after the leak was fixed. This event has provided many lessons about the resiliency of municipal water system infrastructure, the level of human understanding of reliability and vulnerability of resource distribution systems, and the human capacity to adapt in short and longer terms to disturbances in resource distribution systems, and to learn. This talk will use a narrative of the events during May 2010 in Boston to explore the broader question of the nature of resilient resource distribution networks, and describe a heuristic, semi-quantitative model for resilient urban resource distribution networks, including water.

Assessment of sediment contaminants, toxicity, and benthic community structure in Massachusetts bass  

SciTech Connect

Sediments samples were collected during July 1993 at 12 stations in Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays along the Massachusetts coastline. The stations consisted of foursites from shallow subtidal depths in each of three harbor systems: Wellfleet Harbor, Boston Harbor, and Salem/Beverly Harbors. Synoptic measurements were made of pollutant concentrations, sediment/porewater toxicity, and benthic community structure as a basis for examining potential linkages between sediment contamination and adverse impacts on living benthic resources of the Massachusetts Bay/Cape Cod Bay nearshore ecosystem. Results from this application of the Sediment Quality Triad approach will be presented.

Old Boston Photograph Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In 2007, the Boston Public Library rediscovered a rather intriguing cache of photographs from the late 19th century in their archives. While there is still some debate about the provenance of these photos, they believe that the prints were taken by photographers affiliated with the Boston Camera Club, and that this organization was responsible for coordinating this specific project. Recently, the Library decided to digitize 113 of these images, and they are available here. Visitors can search the collection by keyword, and they will also find that the Flickr format will all allow them to send images to friends and also zoom in for a closer look. There are some great items here, including a print of Benjamin Franklin's house on Milk Street and a photograph of the Old State House from 1898.

[The Boston keratoprosthesis].  

PubMed

The Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro) is one of several types of artificial cornea manufactured worldwide that are being implanted in increasing numbers in patients with severe corneal diseases and graft failures. To summerize the advances in design of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis and in the treatment strategies to conquer the post operative complications have expanded the indications and application of this technology. Many modifications to the design of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis and treatment of the patient in the post operative period have occurred. Also, the technology has been more widely accepted as a primary surgical option for patients with a poor preoperative prognosis for traditional penetrating keratoplasty. The outcomes of visual acuity, retention, and post-operative infection rates have all significantly improved since the technology has been modified and offers patients an alternative for visual rehabilitation. This is implanted into a carrier corneal graft or into the patient's own cornea. The allograft cornea can be the carrier, which may solve the shortage of donor cornea in China. PMID:24931158

The Boston Methane Project: Mapping Surface Emissions to Inform Atmospheric Estimation of Urban Methane Flux  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lost and unaccounted natural gas can amount to over 6% of Massachusetts' total annual greenhouse gas inventory (expressed as equivalent CO2 tonnage). An unknown portion of this loss is due to natural gas leaks in pipeline distribution systems. The objective of the Boston Methane Project is to estimate the overall leak rate from natural gas systems in metropolitan Boston, and to compare this flux with fluxes from the other primary methane emissions sources. Companion talks at this meeting describe the atmospheric measurement and modeling framework, and chemical and isotopic tracers that can partition total atmospheric methane flux into natural gas and non-natural gas components. This talk focuses on estimation of surface emissions that inform the atmospheric modeling and partitioning. These surface emissions include over 3,300 pipeline natural gas leaks in Boston. For the state of Massachusetts as a whole, the amount of natural gas reported as lost and unaccounted for by utility companies was greater than estimated landfill emissions by an order of magnitude. Moreover, these landfill emissions were overwhelmingly located outside of metro Boston, while gas leaks are concentrated in exactly the opposite pattern, increasing from suburban Boston toward the urban core. Work is in progress to estimate spatial distribution of methane emissions from wetlands and sewer systems. We conclude with a description of how these spatial data sets will be combined and represented for application in atmospheric modeling.

Massachusetts Real Estate Atlas Digitization Project  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

What buildings were in the Fenway area of Boston in 1908? How about in Worcester in the 1870s? The state of Massachusetts has answers to these questions via its collections of real estate maps from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All told, the State Library's collection includes over 200 atlases, covering 6,500 maps from 12 counties and more than 80 municipalities. Assisted by funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, this site brings together 167 of these volumes. Visitors to the site can examine all of the volumes either as PDF files or via Flickr. It's a rather engaging collection and visitors will thoroughly enjoy browsing through the genealogy of the Bay State's built environment.

Predicting the physical effects of relocating Boston's sewage outfall  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Boston is scheduled to cease discharge of sewage effluent in Boston Harbor in Spring 2000 and begin discharge at a site 14 km offshore in Massachusetts Bay in a water depth of about 30 m. The effects of this outfall relocation on effluent dilution, salinity and circulation are predicted with a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model. The simulations predict that the new bay outfall will greatly decrease effluent concentrations in Boston Harbor (relative to the harbour outfall) and will not significantly change mean effluent concentrations over most of Massachusetts Bay. With the harbour outfall, previous observations and these simulations show that effluent concentrations exceed 0??5% throughout the harbour, with a harbour wide average of 1-2%. With the bay outfall, effluent concentrations exceed 0??5% only within a few km of the new outfall, and harbour concentrations drop to 0??1-0??2%, a 10-fold reduction. During unstratified winter conditions, the local increase in effluent concentration at the bay outfall site is predicted to exist throughout the water column. During stratified summer conditions, however, effluent released at the sea bed rises and is trapped beneath the pycnocline. The local increase in effluent concentration is limited to the lower layer, and as a result, surface layer effluent concentrations in the vicinity of the new outfall site are predicted to decrease (relative to the harbour outfall) during the summer. Slight changes are predicted for the salinity and circulation fields. Removing the fresh water associated with the effluent discharge in Boston Harbor is predicted to increase the mean salinity of the harbour by 0??5 and decrease the mean salinity by 0??10-0??15 within 2-3 km of the outfall. Relative to the existing mean flow, the buoyant discharge at the new outfall is predicted to generate density-driven mean currents of 2-4 cm s-1 that spiral out in a clockwise motion at the surface during winter and at the pycnocline (15-20 m depth) during summer. Compensating counterclockwise currents are predicted to spiral in toward the source at the bottom. Because the scale of the residual current structure induced by the new discharge is comparable to or smaller than typical subtidal water parcel excursions, Lagrangian trajectories will not follow the Eulerian residual flow. Thus, mean currents measured from moorings within 5 km of the bay outfall site will be more useful for model comparison than to indicate net transport pathways.

Boston University Libraries: Research Guides  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Many academic libraries have extensive subject guides, and the Boston University Libraries work diligently to maintain the quality of their work. Here visitors can make their way through 50 guides that cover everything from accounting to zoology. Visitors will note that each guide is divided into multiple sections, often including Databases, Journals, Books, and Government Sources. Each area contains brief annotations about each resource, and a note on whether the resource is publicly available without a specific institutional affiliation or password. Some of the more noteworthy guides here include American Art, Human Rights, and Boston and its Neighborhoods. This last one is quite good, and it even includes a list of books that have been (as they saying goes) "Banned in Boston."

Are toxic contaminants accumulating in Massachusetts coastal sediments following startup of the Massachusetts Bay outfall: a comprehensive comparison of baseline and post-diversion periods.  

PubMed

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) conducts monitoring to address concerns related to the 2000 diversion of secondarily treated effluent discharge into Massachusetts Bay. Baseline data (1992-2000) showed multiple regions defined by physical and chemical composition. Near the Massachusetts Bay outfall, there is a series of heterogeneous sediments in relatively close proximity to the primary historic source of contaminants (Boston Harbor). Farfield sediments exhibited greater compositional definition from one another, which was attributed to the greater spatial separation of the sampling locations. Factors that influence contaminant variability include local and distributed sources, and are primarily related to gradients in depositional environments. Post-diversion sediment data suggest that 4 years of treated effluent discharge has not increased contaminant concentrations to the bay system. However, abundance of the sewage tracer, Clostridium perfringens, has increased variably in sediments located within 2 km of the outfall, providing a distinct effluent signal near the outfall.

The Boston Foundation has worked for over a century to improve the lives of Boston-area residents through its investigations into the housing market, economic development, and the future of public schools. This 56-page report on Boston's innovation economy was released in March 2012, and it looks into how Boston will remain competitive in a range of 21st century industries over the coming years. In the introduction to the work, Paul S. Grogan, CEO of The Boston Foundation, notes that "Macro-economic trends have not been kind to households on the low end of the economic ladder" and "Our second challenge is the degree to which rising health care costs have outpaced our investment in education." Moving on, curious readers will find chapters in the paper titled "A New Paradigm for Boston's Innovation Economy" and "Possible Scenarios for Boston in 2030." Public policy types and others will find this work to be quite interesting and thought-provoking.

From the artistic statements of Louis Sullivan to the brutally Modern statements of Walter Netsch, architecture in Chicago is nothing if not eclectic. Given the important legacy of those architects practicing in and around Chicago, it is refreshing to note that the Art Institute of Chicago has been collecting the oral histories of these men and women since 1983. With substantial financial support from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the Illinois Humanities Council, the Art Institute of Chicago has placed complete transcripts for over fifty of these interviews online here for access by architectural historians and the general public. Here visitors will find the recollections of Stanley Tigerman, Harry Weese, Bertrand Goldberg, and Carter Manny.

A Comparison of Acute Hemorrhagic Stroke Outcomes in two Populations: The Crete-Boston Study  

PubMed Central

Background While corticosteroid use in Acute Hemorrhagic Stroke (AHS) is not widely adopted, management with intravenous dexamethasone (IVDxM) has been standard of care at the University Hospital of Heraklion, Crete (UH-Crete) with observed outcomes superior to those reported in literature. To explore this further, we conducted a retrospective, multivariable-adjusted two-center study. Methods We studied 391 AHS cases admitted to UH-Crete between 1/1997 and 7/2010 and compared them with 510 AHS cases admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston from 1/2003 to 9/2009. Of the Cretan cases, 340 received a tapering scheme of IVDxM, starting with 16–32 mg/day, while the Boston patients were managed without steroids. Results The two cohorts had comparable demographics and stroke severity on admission, although anticoagulation was more frequent in Boston. The in-hospital mortality was significantly lower on Crete (23.8%, n=340) than in Boston (38.0 %, n=510; p<0.001) as was the 30-day mortality (Crete: 25.4%, n=307; Boston: 39.4%, n=510; p<0.001). Exclusion of patients on anticoagulants showed even greater differences (30-day mortality: Crete 20.8%; n=259; Boston 37.0%; n=359; p<0.001). The improved survival on Crete was observed three days after initiation of IVDxM and was pronounced for deep-seated hemorrhages. After adjusting for AHS volume/location, GCS, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking, coronary artery disease and statin, antiplatelet and anticoagulant use, IVDxM treatment was associated with better functional outcomes and significantly lower risk of death at 30-days (odds ratio 0.357; 95% C.I. 0.174–0.732). Conclusions This study suggests that IVDxM improves outcome in AHS and supports a randomized clinical trial using this approach. PMID:22020030

DSM renewable opportunities in Boston  

SciTech Connect

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), in conjunction with MSB Energy Associates, conducted a study for the Boston Edison Demand-Side Management (DSM) Settlement Board on the potential for DSM renewables in the Boston area. DSM renewables are resources that can be used in a distributed utility approach to avoid transmission and distribution (T and D) costs, as well as costs associated with operating and building power plants. The results show that avoided costs in areas with deferrable T and D investments can be nearly twice as high as system-wide average avoided costs. As a result, renewable technologies that might not be considered cost effective as DSM under system-wide average criteria, can produce large shavings for the utility and its customers. Adopting a deliberate program designed to provide sustained orderly development of these renewables is essential in order for renewable technologies to achieve the maximum level of cost-effectiveness and net savings.

Measuring gravity currents in the Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Recent studies of the Chicago River have determined that gravity currents are responsible for persistent bidirectional flows that have been observed in the river. A gravity current is the flow of one fluid within another caused by a density difference between the fluids. These studies demonstrated how acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP) can be used to detect and characterize gravity currents in the field. In order to better understand the formation and evolution of these gravity currents, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has installed ADCPs and other instruments to continuously measure gravity currents in the Chicago River and the North Branch Chicago River. These instruments include stage sensors, thermistor strings, and both upward-looking and horizontal ADCPs. Data loggers and computers installed at gaging stations along the river are used to collect data from these instruments and transmit them to USGS offices. ?? 2008 IEEE.

Atmospheric PCB congeners across Chicago.

We have measured PCBs in 184 air samples collected at 37 sites in the city of Chicago using an innovative system of high-volume air samplers mounted on two health clinic vans. Here we describe results of sampling conducted from November 2006 to November 2007. The samples were analyzed for all 209 PCB congeners using a gas chromatograph with tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS). The ?PCBs (sum of 169 peaks) in Chicago ranged from 75 pg m(-3) to 5500 pg m(-3) and primarily varied as a function of temperature. The congener patterns are surprisingly similar throughout the city even though the temperature-corrected concentrations vary by more than an order of magnitude. The average profile resembles a mixture of Aroclor 1242 and Aroclor 1254, and includes many congeners that have been identified as being aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) agonists (dioxin-like) and/or neurotoxins. The toxic equivalence (TEQ) and neurotoxic equivalence (NEQ) in air were calculated and investigated for their spatial distribution throughout the urban-industrial complex of Chicago. The NEQ concentrations are linearly correlated with ?PCBs while the TEQ concentrations are not predictable. The findings of this study suggest that airborne PCBs in Chicago are widely present and elevated in residential communities; there are multiple sources rather than one or a few locations of very high emissions; the emission includes congeners associated with dioxin-like and neurotoxic effects and congeners associated with unidentified sources.

The eastern Massachusetts sea breeze study  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study investigates many different aspects of the sea breeze at Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts (KBOS) and along the Massachusetts coastline. Part of the study adapts the method of predicting sea breeze events developed by Miller and Keim (2003) for Portsmouth, New Hampshire (KPSM) to KBOS. A nearly ten-year dataset of hourly KBOS surface observations (1998-2007) was used to identify 879 days when the sea breeze occurred or was likely to occur at the airport. These days were classified as sea breeze, marginal, or non-sea breeze events. Sea breeze events were further classified into fast and slow transitions, with a fast transition identified by a wind shift taking one hour or less to develop, and a slow transition identified by a wind shift taking two hours or more to develop. Marginal events were events that had a duration of 1 hour or less, no clear start or finish, or were interrupted by periods of "calm" or "light and variable" winds. Non-events were events in which the background conditions for a sea breeze to occur existed, but a sea breeze did not develop. Times of onset and event durations for the sea breeze events (fast, slow, and marginal) were calculated and used to create seasonal statistics by event type. It was found that seasonal variation did occur with both characteristics, but was more evident in the time of onset. Slow events occurred earliest in the day overall, while marginal events occurred a bit later, and fast events occurred the latest. Slow events had the longest duration overall, while marginal events, by definition, had the shortest duration. Seasonally, similar results were found for both characteristics with a few variations. United States surface analyses for each event at the time of onset (or average time of onset, 1500 UTC, for non-events) were classified using the seven synoptic classes developed by Miller and Keim (2003), and statistics were developed to evaluate the distribution of synoptic classes amongst the different types of events and various seasons. Composite surface analyses of the different synoptic classes and types of events were then developed. There were significant differences between the composites of each event type within a synoptic class. Wind vector plots, created from surface observations using Barnes analysis, were used to identify the position of the sea breeze front as the sea breeze airmass penetrated inland. The depth and shape of this front was examined by synoptic class. The prevailing synoptic scale flow was found to limit penetration in expected areas along the coastline. Mesoscale calculations were used to determine the critical balance of the cross-shore temperature gradient (dT/dx) versus the cross-shore geostrophic wind component (uG) at the surface necessary for the occurrence and non-occurrence of the sea breeze. It was found that by stratifying the events by synoptic classes, a smaller transition area (containing both sea breeze and non-sea breeze events) could be created. The method was taken further by adding a third variable, the 850 hPa geostrophic wind component. The three dimensional plot showed a large transition area and future research may be able to reduce this area by breaking it down by synoptic class. Finally, the effect of the sea breeze on convection was analyzed using radar reflectivity data from the Taunton, Massachusetts WSR-88D (KBOX) for 2002 through 2007 (562 events). Convection was present inland along the Massachusetts coastline for only 24 of the total 562 events (4%). This small occurrence results from a bias from the methodology used to develop the data set. However, when the sea breeze did occur convection developed or was affected by the sea breeze front.

The Geography of Violence, Alcohol Outlets, and Drug Arrests in Boston  

PubMed Central

Objectives. We examined the relationship between alcohol outlets, drug markets (approximated by arrests for possession and trafficking), and violence in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2006. We analyzed geographic and environmental versus individual factors related to violence and identified areas high in violent crime. Methods. We used data from the Boston Police Department, US Census, and Massachusetts State Alcohol Beverage Control Commission. Spatial modeling was employed at the block group level, and violent crime, alcohol outlets, and drug markets were mapped. Results. Relative to other block groups, block groups in the highest decile of violent crime (n?=?55) were found to be poorer (e.g., lower incomes, higher percentages of vacant homes), and they had greater numbers of alcohol outlets and higher drug arrest rates. Alcohol outlets and drug possession and trafficking arrests were predictive of violent crime. Also, spatial effects resulting from neighboring block groups were related to violent crime. Both alcohol outlet density and type were associated with violent crime in a differentiated and complex way. Conclusions. With drug possession and trafficking arrests as a proxy for drug markets, spatial relationships between alcohol outlets and violence were found in addition to typical sociodemographic predictors.

Emissions of decamethylcyclopentasiloxane from Chicago.  

PubMed

Decamethylcyclopentasiloxane (D5) is a high-production-volume chemical that is emitted to air in tens of thousands of tonnes each year globally. However, specific information about emission rates to air is still limited. Here we present an estimate of D5 emissions from the city of Chicago based on measurements that have recently been published. We used a multimedia environmental fate model parameterized for Chicago to back-calculate the emission rate of D5 from the measurements. Our estimated average emission rate for D5 is 500 (2.5-to-97.5-percentile interval: 260-1100) kg d(-1). The corresponding per-capita emissions of 190 (100-420) mg capita(-1)d(-1) agree well with previous estimates for Europe and North America. PMID:24444417

Boston University Libraries: Research Guides  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Many libraries compile research guides for their community members, and some of them are quite good. Staff members at the Boston University Library system have worked on well over 40 such guides, and they are available on this site. By clicking on the "Subject Guides" tab, visitors will find topics arranged alphabetically (from "accounting and auditing" to "women's studies"). Each guide features a well-organized set of links that document the key journals in each field, along with offering a host of print resources, citation indices, and external websites.

Boston type I keratoprosthesis: Review.  

PubMed

Regardless of significant progress in the field of corneal transplantation to treat corneal opacification, some cases of corneal blindness still present a poor prognosis for conventional penetrating keratoplasty. In patients with repeated graft failure and/or with severe ocular surface disease, the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (type I BKPro) has become a viable option. Modifications in its design and postoperative management have improved the long-term outcomes of visual acuity, retention, and postoperative infection rates. These advances made the type I BKPro be considered a safe alternative for visual rehabilitation in many patients with corneal pathologies. However, postoperative handle of chronic comorbidities, such as glaucoma, is still critical for preserving the visual gains achieved with BKPro. PMID:22872210

Cost Issues Unresolved in Chicago  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Chicago teachers voted last week to suspend a 7-day-old strike, sending some 350,000 students back to the classroom and paving the way for the teaching force to vote on a tentative contract. But for many in the Windy City, the contract has raised another potentially tall hurdle: how the cash-strapped district will manage to pay for it. District…

Revealing Chicago: An Aerial Portrait  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Patterns of human use (and misuse) of the land can be provocatively revealed through aerial photography, a fact that is not lost on artists, raconteurs, and perhaps most surprisingly, elected officials. This delightful online exhibit brings together the photographic acumen of Terry Evans, working in tandem with two regional organizations in Chicago, the Openlands Project and Chicago Metropolis 2020. The exhibit begins with the contention that the photographs offer perspectives on the past, present, future of the Chicago region, and fortunately, it follows up on this promise quite well. With a nice interactive feature, visitors can scan through a map of the Chicagoland region to view photographs of old industrial factories, suburban sprawl, and protected wetlands. Visitors can also view the photographs thematically, which includes such areas as farming, infrastructure, and perhaps more leisurely, âÂÂchilling outâÂÂ. Overall, this is a lovely site and it should be of great interest to urbanologists and those with a penchant for planning or the built environment.

Boston in the 1970s: is there a lesbian community? And if there is, who is in it?  

PubMed

This excerpt from Amy Hoffman's memoir, An Army of Ex-Lovers: My Life at the Gay Community News (University of Massachusetts Press, 2007), describes some of the alternative community institutions serving lesbian feminists in Boston in the late 1970s. Hoffman, in her twenties at the time and fairly newly out, is an enthusiastic patron of these institutions. However, after a while, she begins to wonder about them. Boston in the 1970s was racially segregated and tense; a judicial order to desegregate the schools led to racist riots. The women's community was, sadly, no more diverse than the city's neighborhoods, and the alternative institutions, Hoffman realizes, are organized by and cater mostly to young, white, middle-class women like her. They fail to appeal to the needs and interests of poor women of color-although of course some do participate, and others become active in service organizations such as battered women's shelters.

The John Adams Library at the Boston Public Library  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

By all accounts, John Adams was a man who was obsessed with reading and the collecting of books. He pored over books for hours at a time and he also made thousands of handwritten notes on many of them. Upon his death, at the age of 86, he deeded his personal library to the town of Quincy, Massachusetts. In 1894, the entire collection made its way to the Boston Public Library, where it has resided ever since. This exemplary online collection allows users to pore over his books at their leisure, and for anyone who has found themselves entranced by the written word, this site will surely become a favorite. Visitors can start by looking over an interactive timeline of Adams' library and book collecting practices and then move on to the "Collection Highlights" area. Here, visitors can look over his "Top 40", which contains his most heavily annotated books and some of the many rare volumes he purchased. The site is rounded out by the "Did You Know?" area, which offers up a few intriguing facts and figures related to the collection.

Oral Acetazolamide after Boston Keratoprosthesis in Stevens Johnson Syndrome  

PubMed Central

Background Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) is a rare but severe and sometimes fatal condition associated with exposure to medications; sulfamethoxazole is among the most common causes. We sought to address the safety of acetazolamide, a chemically related compound, in patients with prior SJS/TEN and glaucoma. A retrospective case series is described of patients at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary who underwent keratoprosthesis surgery for corneal blindness from SJS/TEN, and later required oral acetazolamide for elevated intraocular pressure. Findings Over the last 10?years, 17 patients with SJS/TEN received a Boston keratoprosthesis. Of these, 11 developed elevated intraocular pressure that required administration of oral acetazolamide. One of 11 developed a mild allergic reaction, but no patient experienced a recurrence of SJS/TEN or any severe adverse reaction. Conclusion Although an increase in the rate of recurrent SJS/TEN due to oral acetazolamide would not necessarily be apparent after treating only 11 patients, in our series, acetazolamide administration was well tolerated without serious sequela.

Cost effectiveness of the type II Boston keratoprosthesis  

PubMed Central

Purpose Despite demonstrated cost effectiveness, not all corneal disorders are amenable to type I Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) implantation. This includes patients with autoimmune diseases, such as Stevens–Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis. Type II KPro is implanted through the eyelids in severe dry eye and cicatricial diseases, and its cost effectiveness was sought. Patients and methods In a retrospective chart review, 29 patients who underwent type II KPro surgery at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary between the years 2000 and 2009 were identified. A total of 11 patients had 5-year follow-up data. Average cost effectiveness was determined by cost-utility analysis, comparing type II KPro surgery with no further intervention. Results Using the current parameters, the cost utility of KPro from third-party insurer (Medicare) perspective was 63?196 $/quality-adjusted life year. Conclusion Efforts to refer those less likely to benefit from traditional corneal transplantation or type I KPro, for type II KPro surgery, may decrease both patient and societal costs.

The Chicago Public Schools-University of Chicago Internet Project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The University of Chicago has begun a pilot collaboration with the Chicago Public Schools to bring a T-1 Internet connection to the three public high schools and their 21 feeder elementary schools in the city surrounding the University. The 11 schools involved in Phase I of the CPS/UofC Internet Project (CUIP) have each been connected to their own T-1 line since October 1996. Unlike some other partnerships, this collaboration emphasizes the continued support of the schools and their teachers after the computers and connections are in place. We are working with principals, department heads, and individual teachers to create and nurture a self-sustaining computer culture that will both maintain the network systems and incorporate the technology and resources into the curriculum. We are also helping the schools to work more closely together and share resources among themselves in addition to using the resources of the Internet. Since most of the UofC leaders of this program are physical scientists(indeed, mostly astronomers), most of our efforts at this point are specifically in science and math. (Including Science Partners, see our other abstract.) We have not forgotten teachers of other disciplines, and are beginning to work with our colleagues in other divisions in the University in order to better serve those teachers.

Chicago Public Library: Millennium Park  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The transformation of the area east of Michigan Avenue from an industrial wasteland into the vibrant and heavily-used Millennium Park is truly a remarkable tale in Chicago's recent history. The apocryphal tale says that Mayor Richard M. Daley looked out from his dentist's office and envisioned a public park that would be comparable to other grand spaces in the city. The construction of Millennium Park took quite some time, but when the park was finished in 2004, most people were quite happy with it. This digital collection from the Chicago Public Library brings together over 5,100 images of the park at various phases of its construction. Visitors can view a highlights file of 154 images, and they can wander through topical areas like Cloud Gate, Crown Fountain, and Lurie Garden. Visitors interested in broad vistas of the entire setting should click on Full Park. Finally, visitors can use the tabs on the left-hand side of the page to look at architectural renderings and models of the park's various sections.

Mortality Among Homeless Adults in Boston: Shifts in Causes of Death Over a 15-year Period  

PubMed Central

Background Homeless persons experience excess mortality, but U.S.-based studies on this topic are outdated or lack information about causes of death. No studies have examined shifts in causes of death for this population over time. Methods We assessed all-cause and cause-specific mortality rates in a cohort of 28,033 adults aged 18 years or older who were seen at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program between January 1, 2003, and December 31, 2008. Deaths were identified through probabilistic linkage to the Massachusetts death occurrence files. We compared mortality rates in this cohort to rates in the 2003–08 Massachusetts population and a 1988–93 cohort of homeless adults in Boston using standardized rate ratios with 95% confidence intervals. Results 1,302 deaths occurred during 90,450 person-years of observation. Drug overdose (n=219), cancer (n=206), and heart disease (n=203) were the major causes of death. Drug overdose accounted for one-third of deaths among adults <45 years old. Opioids were implicated in 81% of overdose deaths. Mortality rates were higher among whites than non-whites. Compared to Massachusetts adults, mortality disparities were most pronounced among younger individuals, with rates about 9-fold higher in 25–44 year olds and 4.5-fold higher in 45–64 year olds. In comparison to 1988–93, reductions in HIV deaths were offset by 3- and 2-fold increases in deaths due to drug overdose and psychoactive substance use disorders, resulting in no significant difference in overall mortality. Conclusions The all-cause mortality rate among homeless adults in Boston remains high and unchanged since 1988–93 despite a major interim expansion in clinical services. Drug overdose has replaced HIV as the emerging epidemic. Interventions to reduce mortality in this population should include behavioral health integration into primary medical care, public health initiatives to prevent and reverse drug overdose, and social policy measures to end homelessness.

Argon laser iridoplasty for optic obstruction of Boston keratoprosthesis.  

PubMed

The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) has been used successfully in eyes with poor prognosis for conventional penetrating keratoplasty. However, postoperative changes in iris configuration after Boston KPro may occur, including iris obstruction of the Boston KPro, limiting visual potential in otherwise successful transplants. We describe our technique of argon laser iridoplasty after Boston KPro as a safe and effective procedure to treat visually significant optic obstruction and as a less-invasive alternative to surgical intervention.

Prolene monofilament suture in Boston Keratoprosthesis surgery  

PubMed Central

Summary Toxic reaction to nylon following uncomplicated cataract surgery and vitrectomy has been documented in the literature. We report the case of an aniridic patient with a known adverse reaction to nylon in whom Prolene suture was used in Boston Keratoprosthesis type 1 (KPro) surgery. During follow-up the cornea was checked for signs of inflammation and toxic reaction; at last follow-up (18 months) the patient showed no signs of complications due to Prolene. Our study suggests that Prolene suture may be used as an alternative to nylon in Boston KPro surgery in patients with a history of nylon toxicity. PMID:23362386

Business of biosimilars - 14th annual conference (October 15-17, 2013 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA).

Competition in the biological market offers a new set of opportunities and challenges within the healthcare industry. Biosimilars, like generic small-molecule drugs, can provide cost savings and increase patient access, while also promoting innovation. While large molecule manufacturers face many challenges unique to complex therapeutics, it is becoming clear that the commercialization of biosimilars shares many of the same hurdles as the generics market. The 14th Annual Business of Biosimilars Conference provided quality presentations from industry leaders regarding many commercial considerations for stakeholders interested in entering the biosimilars market. Opportunities to network with industry experts were offered, with over 120 attendees. PMID:24524098

The Influenza Research and Development Conference consisted of eight sessions: 'Development of Influenza Vaccines' (held jointly with Vaccines Research & Development), 'Antivirals and Therapeutics', 'Role of T-Cells', 'Regulatory Guidance - Clinical Trial Design & Efficacy Trials', 'Role of Antibodies' and 'Innate Immunity and Infection'. The conference also convened a panel at the end of the second day to discuss 'Balancing Science & the First Amendment', as well as a session at the end of day 3 for oral presentations selected from exemplary submitted abstracts. The overall scope of the conference addressed the need for improved influenza vaccines, approaches for assessing vaccine efficacy, novel vaccination strategies and novel antiviral drugs. Presentations by academics and industry provided a good balance of cutting-edge research with preclinical, clinical and post-licensure studies. Interventions for human seasonal, zoonotic and pandemic influenza viruses were also discussed. PMID:25187909

This document has been prepared by the Department of Energy`s (DOE) Environmental Management (EM) Office of Technology Development (OTD) to highlight its research, development, demonstration, testing, and evaluation (RDDT and E) activities funded through the Chicago Operations Office. Technologies and processes described have the potential to enhance DOE`s cleanup and waste management efforts, as well as improve US Industry`s competitiveness in global environmental markets. The information has been assembled from recently produced OTD documents which highlight technology development activities within each of the OTD program elements. OTD technologies addresses three specific problem areas: (1) groundwater and soils cleanup; (2) waste retrieval and processing; and (3) pollution prevention. These problems are not unique to DOE, but are associated with other Federal agency and industry sites as well. Thus, technical solutions developed within OTD programs will benefit DOE, and should have direct applications in outside markets.

NSDL National Science Digital Library

During the years 1991 and 1992, the University of Chicago celebrated its centennial with special gatherings, symposia, alumni celebrations, and various publications. One particularly intriguing set of publications was these four catalogues created to celebrate various aspects of the institution's first hundred years. The University of Chicago Special Collections Research Center digitized the catalogues, and they are available online here. The titles include "The University and the City," "Life on the Quads," and "The University of Chicago Faculty." First-time visitors might do well to start with "The University and the City" catalogue. Here they can learn about the school's work with social welfare reform, urban politics, and a commitment to the city of Chicago. The "Life on the Quads" catalogue is another delight, and it features students acting in the celebrated Blackfriars productions and images of students gathering in the C-Shop on campus.

Intensive sampling on ten of the islands, using an assortment of passive traps and limited hand collecting, resulted in the capture of 6,194 specimens, comprising 128 species. Among these species were seven new state records for Massachusetts (Acupalpus nanellus, Amara aulica, Amara bifrons, Apenes lucidulus, Bradycellus tantillus, Harpalus rubripes and Laemostenus terricola terricola—the last also a new country record; in passing we report also new state records for Harpalus rubripes from New York and Pennsylvania, Amara ovata from Pennsylvania, and the first mainland New York records for Asaphidion curtum). For most islands, there was a clear relationship between species richness and island area. Two islands, however, Calf and Grape, had far more species than their relatively small size would predict. Freshwater marshes on these islands, along with a suite of hygrophilous species, suggested that habitat diversity plays an important role in island species richness. Introduced species (18) comprised 14.0% of the total observed species richness, compared to 5.5% (17 out of 306 species) documented for Rhode Island. We surmise that the higher proportion of introduced species on the islands is, in part, due to a higher proportion of disturbed and open habitats as well as high rates of human traffic. We predict that more active sampling in specialized habitats would bring the total carabid fauna of the Boston Harbor Islands closer to that of Rhode Island or eastern Massachusetts in richness and composition; however, isolation, human disturbance and traffic, and limited habitat diversity all contribute to reducing the species pool on the islands relative to that on the mainland.

A New Spin on Research Translation: The Boston Consensus Conference on Human Biomonitoring  

PubMed Central

Background Translating research to make it more understandable and effective (research translation) has been declared a priority in environmental health but does not always include communication to the public or residents of communities affected by environmental hazards. Their unique perspectives are also commonly missing from discussions about science and technology policy. The consensus conference process, developed in Denmark, offers a way to address this gap. Objectives The Boston Consensus Conference on Human Biomonitoring, held in Boston, Massachusetts, in the fall of 2006, was designed to educate and elicit input from 15 Boston-area residents on the scientifically complex topic of human biomonitoring for environmental chemicals. This lay panel considered the many ethical, legal, and scientific issues surrounding biomonitoring and prepared a report expressing their views. Discussion The lay panel’s findings provide a distinct and important voice on the expanding use of biomonitoring. In some cases, such as a call for opt-in reporting of biomonitoring results to study participants, they mirror recommendations raised elsewhere. Other conclusions have not been heard previously, including the recommendation that an individual’s results should be statutorily exempted from the medical record unless permission is granted, and the opportunity to use biomonitoring data to stimulate green chemistry. Conclusion The consensus conference model addresses both aspects of a broader conception of research translation: engaging the public in scientific questions, and bringing their unique perspectives to bear on public health research, practice, and policy. In this specific application, a lay panel’s recommendations on biomonitoring surveillance, communication, and ethics have practical implications for the conduct of biomonitoring studies and surveillance programs.

Loyola University Chicago: Digital Yearbooks  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The story of Loyola University in Chicago can be told via its alumni, its campus, and of course, its many well-known academic programs. But what of the stories that can be found within the pages of the University's many yearbooks? Today such large volumes might seem a bit passe, but for decades they contained the stories, aspirations, and accomplishments of the student body. This digitization project, undertaken by the Loyola University Archives and the CARLI Book Digitization Program, contains several different types of class yearbooks. "The Loyolan" was the official yearbook of the university, "Towers" was the College of Commerce's yearbook, "Dentos" served as the yearbook of record for the School of Dentistry, and the School of Medicine broke form by changing its yearbook title from year to year. Visitors can scan through each document at their leisure, so it's fun to pick a random volume and just starting exploring. Finally, there are also some Miscellaneous Volumes, such as copies of the Loyola University Magazine from the years 1901 to 1921.

Boston Architectural College Urban Sustainability Initiative  

SciTech Connect

The Boston Architectural College's Urban Sustainability initiative is a demonstration project as defined by the National Energy Technology Laboratory. BAC's proposed project with the U.S. Department of Energy - NETL, is a large part of that overall initiative. The BAC's Urban Sustainability Initiative is a multi-part project with several important goals and objectives that will have a significant impact on the surrounding neighborhood including: energy conservation, reduction of storm water runoff, generation of power through alternative energy sources, elimination/reduction of BAC carbon footprint, and to create a vehicle for ongoing public outreach and education. Education and outreach opportunities will serve to add to the already comprehensive Sustainability Design courses offered at BAC relative to energy savings, performance and conservation in building design. At the finish of these essential capital projects there will be technical materials created for the education of the design, sustainability, engineering, community development and historic preservation communities, to inform a new generation of environmentally-minded designers and practitioners, the city of Boston and the general public. The purpose of the initiative, through our green renovations program, is to develop our green alley projects and energy saving renovations to the BAC physical plant, to serve as a working model for energy efficient design in enclosed 19th century and 20th century urban sites and as an educational laboratory for teaching ecological and sustainable technologies to students and the public while creating jobs. The scope of our project as it relates to the BAC and the U.S. Department of Energy- NETL combined efforts includes: Task I of the project is Phase II (Green Alley). Task I encompasses various renovation activities that will demonstrate the effectiveness of permeable paving and ground water recharge systems. It will aid in the reduction of storm water runoff into the Charles River Basin in one of its most significantly polluted sections and, will provide a green renovation mechanism for the redirected storm water of a public alley way. This activity is designed to improve the quality of water recharging the ground water and protecting the vulnerable wood pilings under many of the historic masonry buildings in Boston's Back Bay. Sustainable design research and system monitoring opportunities will also be incorporated, providing ongoing tools for public outreach and education through innovative signage and "virtual tour" technology. The monitoring will include a "building performance dash board" that reflects real time operating conditions and improvements in environmental and economic performance to be prominently displayed on the face of our 320 Newbury Street building (approximately 1.5 million people walk by annually). The project site and demonstration area is located at the rear of 951 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115 and the parking area adjacent to Public Alley #444 in Boston's historic Back Bay. Task II of the project is Geothermal Solution. This task involves the installation of approximately seven Geothermal wells which will tap into the earth's constant underground temperatures to provide air-conditioning and heating for BAC facilities. The environmentally friendly geothermal system uses no fossil fuel, produces no emissions and runs silently, providing a sustainable model for commercial and residential buildings throughout Boston. Ultimately the combination of this project and other projects will assist in making the BAC "carbon-neutral", and could generate enough additional energy to provide free power to the Engine 33 and Ladder 15 Firehouse located at 941 Boylston Street. The project is located at the rear of 951 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02115 and the parking area adjacent to Public Alley #444 in Boston's historic Back Bay. Task III of the project is the Sustainability Design Curriculum at the BAC. The BAC is the nation’s largest independent, multi-disciplinary college of spatial design, and a leader in

As Boston was once known as the "Athens of America", it will probably not be a surprise to learn that the metropolitan area has more arts and cultural organizations per capita than any other place in the United States. One organization that is dedicated to strengthen this vibrant arts community is the Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston. They provide pro bono legal services for artists, training workshops to serve artists and art administrators, and they also train business professionals to serve on nonprofit boards of directors. The Council is also a chapter of the American for the Arts organization, and their homepage provides an event calendar, announcements, and talks. Along the right-hand side of the page visitors will find easy-to-use links such as "I need legal help" and "I want to be a more successful artist." Also, the site contains links to sign up for their Twitter feed and to join their Facebook network.

Outcomes of the Boston Keratoprosthesis in Jordan  

PubMed Central

Purpose: To report the indications, outcomes, and complications of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (KPro) from the first Jordanian study on the subject. Materials and Methods: A retrospective chart review was conducted on 20 eyes of 19 consecutive patients who had Boston type I KPro implantation at King Abdullah University Hospital. Surgeries were performed by the same surgeon (WS) from November 2007 to March 2010. Data collected included age, sex, primary indication, number of previous grafts, preoperative comorbidities, visual acuity before and after surgery, and complications. Results: The mean age of the participants was 51.7±19.9 years (range: 10–80 years). The mean follow-up was 18.1±9.5 months (range: 3–6 months). The most common primary corneal pathology was vascularized corneal opacity (40%). Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) improved significantly in 85% of eyes; 65% had a BCVA of 20/200 or better and 25% had a BCVA of 20/50 or better. The most frequent complication was retroprosthesis membrane (RPM) formation, which occurred in 45% of eyes. Two eyes (10%) had implant extrusion and required further surgery. Conclusion: Boston Kpro offers a reasonably safe and effective solution for patients with corneal blindness in whom the prognosis for natural corneal grafting is poor. PMID:22346122
