    Getty Joe Mazzulla, Boston Celtics Joe Mazzulla has stepped into an interim head coaching role with the Boston Celtics, following the suspension of Ime Udoka, and it looks like Brad Stevens is trying to add some additional experience to the staff before the season begins. According to a September 30 report by Marc Stein, via his Steinline Newsletter, Bost holds an interest in former Los Angeles Lakers coach Frank Vogel – although they’re pessimistic on their ability to convince him to accept an assistant role on Mazzulla’s staff. “Coaching sources say that the Celts are likewise interested in two of the top available former head coaches — Frank Vogel and Terry Stotts — but pessimistic about their chances of luring either to usher the unproven Mazzulla through this massive step up onto the big stage. Mazzulla’s only head coaching experience to date came at Division II Fairmont State and this season was scheduled to be his first as a front-of-the-bench assistant in the NBA until Udoka’s suspension earned Mazzulla this unlikely promotion into the Boston hot seat,” Stein...
    Getty Brett Brown, Boston Celtics Following the news that the Boston Celtics struck out in their attempt to bring Jay Larranaga back to the teams coaching ranks, it would appear another name is now being considered. According to Heavy.com’s Steve Bulpett, Brett Brown is a name we should all be keeping an eye on should Boston continue to explore their options in regards to adding another assistant coach. “With Jay Larranaga reportedly turning down an opportunity to return to the Celtic coaching staff, a number of very good candidates remain. One I might seek permission to talk to is Portland, Maine native Brett Brown, who played at BU and is now back assisting Pop and the Spurs,” Bulpett Tweeted on September 29.  With Jay Larranaga reportedly turning down an opportunity to return to the Celtic coaching staff, a number of very good candidates remain.

    Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is reportedly facing a potential season-long suspension over an improper, consensual affair with a female member of the team's staff.  Udoka is married to actress Nia Long, who gave birth to the couple's son in 2015.  Long and Udoka were 'believed to have been separated prior to current issue,' according to Bally Sports' Brandon Robinson.    ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, who first reported the looming suspension, writes that Udoka's job is not in jeopardy. However, the team considers the relationship to be a violation, and a decision on the length of the ban could come Thursday.  The Athletic's Shams Charania first reported that Udoka had 'an improper intimate and consensual relationship' with a female member of the team staff. ESPN has since confirmed that reporting.  Team spokespeople did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for comment. The Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach has confirmed that Udoka is facing a suspension for a violation of team rules, although his sources did not reveal the specific violation.  Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka could be facing a potential suspension days before the start...
    School officials have barred a public high school in Massachusetts from displaying gay pride and Black Lives Matter flags in classrooms. Stoughton High School staff were instructed during a faculty meeting on September 14 to not display the flags along with the police officer flag, known as the Thin Blue Line flag, a staff member told The Boston Globe.  'We need to avoid placing items in the classroom that can cause disruption or distraction,' Administrative Principle Juliette Miller said in an e-mail to staff.  'We are an inclusive environment and want to maintain that inclusivity.'  While the flags are prohibited, LGBTQ+ stickers will be distributed and placed on classroom doors.  The stickers will not have the words 'Diversity, Equity Inclusion' to avoid 'politically charged' lingo.  Miller didn't immediately comment on the matter. Stoughton High School staff are no longer allowed to display police flags, along with BLM and Pride flags in classrooms Administrative Principle Juliette Miller said the point in removing the flags is to keep an 'inclusive environment.'

    Hospitals in the United States are hemorrhaging funds and many are sounding the alarm that they may not be able to continue operations unless rocketing costs and labor shortages are resolved in the coming months. A report published last week by the American Hospital Association (AHA) and KaufmanHall last week projects that up to 70 percent of hospitals in America may end 2022 having lost money. Increasing costs of labor are the main contributor. Many have also had trouble bringing in revenue, as shortages in labor have reduced their capacity to provide services. One notable example of a hospital that has struggled is Mass General Brigham hospital (MGH) in Boston, Massachusetts, which posted $949 million in losses in the third quarter of the 2022 fiscal year - ending in June. The hospital points to surging labor costs and staffing shortages for the unprecedented losses. American hospitals have struggled throughout the pandemic. Many operations were deferred as a result of lockdowns and Covid restrictions. The pandemic also led to an exodus of medical staff, specifically in nursing, leading to many relying...
    A package detonated inside a Northeastern University building, injuring one man and sending Boston Police and federal bomb squads sweeping through the campus and taking out a second suspicious parcel as cops searched for who could be behind it. At 7:18 p.m. Tuesday, cops were called to 39 Leon St. on Northeastern’s campus for reports that a package had detonated. First responders found a 45-year-old college staffer with “minor” hand injuries inside the building where the package blew up, and took him to the hospital. The wounds are not life-threatening, authorities said. The BPD bomb squad found a second suspicious package, which the squad “rendered safe,” cops said. No one was immediately arrested. “The scene is secure and that the investigation is ongoing,” Boston Police Superintendent Felipe Colon told reporters at a press conference around 10:30 p.m. outside police headquarters just a few blocks away. All the brass came out to the presser after the eerie reports of an explosion and the rush of emergency vehicles that invoked bad memories in a city that’s had its fair share of them....
    One person has been injured after opening a package that exploded on Northeastern University's campus in Boston, BostonEMS reports. The incident was reported at Holmes Hall on Leon Street on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 13, Northeastern University Police said on Twitter.  Northeastern University said the package was delivered and opened by a staff member, WCVB's Nathalie Pozo reports. The staff member reportedly sustained injuries to their hand and was taken to a local hospital for further treatment. They are expected to be okay. At least one other explosive package was also believed to be at the scene, WHDH's Steve Cooper reports. It is unclear if there were more packages and it was too soon to say if terrorism was involved.  The building was being evacuated as a result and residents were being advised to avoid the area. Evening classes in several neighboring buildings were cancelled as a result as well.  Northeastern eventually put out a statement saying the situation was contained just before 10 p.m. The university said NUPD will be working alongside Boston Police as they continue their investigation and...
    Boston Children's Hospital is telling its staff to take precautions after the world-renowned hospital was deluged with threats following a misleading viral video that incorrectly claims the facility is providing sex-change operations on young children.  The hospital said it has reached out to law enforcement agencies about the threats.  “In response to commentary last week critical of our Gender Multispecialty Service (GeMS) Program, Boston Children’s Hospital has been the target of a large volume of hostile internet activity, phone calls, and harassing emails including threats of violence toward our clinicians and staff,” Boston Children’s Hospital said in an emailed statement. “We are deeply concerned by these attacks on our clinicians and staff fueled by misinformation and a lack of understanding and respect for our transgender community.” “Boston Children’s is proud to be home to the first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the United States,” the statement added.

    Doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital have been facing violent threats after far-right groups online, including the Libs of TikTok account, spread “misinformation” about the hospital performing genital surgeries on minors in connection with transgender care. In the wake of hostile phone calls and harassing emails, the hospital said it’s now “working with law enforcement to protect our clinicians, staff, patients, families, and the broader Boston Children’s community and hold the offenders accountable.” The harassment started after Libs of TikTok and other far-right Twitter accounts posted about the hospital’s Gender Multispecialty Service, the first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the country. The groups online wrote that the hospital was providing gender-confirming surgeries for children. “In response to commentary last week critical of our Gender Multispecialty Service Program, Boston Children’s Hospital has been the target of a large volume of hostile internet activity, phone calls, and harassing emails including threats of violence toward our clinicians and staff,” the hospital said in a statement. “We are deeply concerned by these attacks fueled by misinformation and a lack of understanding and respect...

    BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Teachers Union and city officials have reached an agreement that will allow unvaccinated educators to submit two negative COVID tests a week, Mayor Michelle Wu announced on Thursday. The city reached the agreement a day earlier with the largest union in the city. The union ratified the agreement with 84% of members voting in favor. Boston School Committee members must agree to the new policy for it to go into effect. Under the agreement, unvaccinated staff members can submit two negative tests a week “during periods of lower virus transmission.” Specific metrics are included in the agreement. When COVID transmission is higher, unvaccinated members will not be allowed in schools, but can use accrued time instead of being placed on unpaid administrative leave. “I’m grateful for the vast majority of our teachers who have already gotten vaccinated,” Wu said in a statement. “This overwhelming ratification vote of a policy that has already boosted vaccination rates across our workforce and will ensure that all new hires must be vaccinated will help us prioritize a safe and...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Superintendent of Schools Brenda Cassellius said the district is “running on fumes” trying to navigate the staffing and safety issues the latest COVID surge has presented. Cassellius said Boston Public Schools is taking every step to avoid remote learning amid the surge. “We are listening, learning, adjusting as needed and planning ahead so we can be prepared for our future in case we need to have additional mitigation efforts,” Cassellius said during a Wednesday School Committee meeting. The latest COVID surge has taken a toll on the district and its staff, with more than 1,000 daily absences among teachers and staff in the city. The Boston Public Health Commission and the district have submitted a formal request to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requesting twice-weekly surveillance testing for both vaccinated and unvaccinated students and staff. Students announced they are planning a walkout Friday to send a message to the state. “This protest is not directly aimed at the district but at the state and DESE.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Superintendent Dr. Brenda Cassellius is taking on a different role Wednesday amid a staffing shortage in Boston schools – classroom teacher. Cassellius and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu have described the return from winter break as an “all hands on deck” situation with COVID-related absences continuing to grow among school staff. Tuesday on the first day students were back from break, a total of 1,000 staff members were out sick. That number included 461 classroom teachers. Not all of the absences were COVID related. A day later, Cassellius was needed at Nathan Hale School as a substitute fifth grade teacher. I couldn’t sleep last night I was so excited to teach fifth grade today.

    Over 1,000 Boston teachers and staff have called out of work Tuesday due to COVID-19 and others reasons, according to NBC Boston. Boston Superintendent Brenda Cassellius said that 1,074 workers in the Boston public school system called out Tuesday, including 461 teachers and 52 bus drivers, per the outlet. "We’ll assess the health and safety issues presented as well as the operational issues that we may already have, the staffing issues," said Cassellius Monday, explaining the situation of a dire number of staffers being unable to report to work. "We have our central office teams, many of us are licensed teachers, myself included, if I have to go out and teach in a classroom I’m going to do that. But our goal is to keep classes going and to keep students in person," she added, according to NBC. The Boston Teachers Union reported on Tuesday that there were issues in the rollout of at-home COVID-19 tests, according to NBC.  According to the union, the tests were listed as having expired in Nov. 2021.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Schools in Boston are dealing with severe staffing shortages on the first day students returned from winter break. More than 1,000 teachers and staff members out across the city. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brenda Cassellius said on Tuesday there are 461 teachers among the 1,000 sick calls. Not all of the absences are COVID related. The number of absences is expected to grow as teachers receive COVID test results. Cassellius said 42 schools in the city are dealing with 20% of their staff members being out. About 60 central office staff members are working in schools Tuesday to help with the teacher shortage. As of Tuesday, about 52 bus drivers are out, Cassellius said. The superintendent said the goal is to keep students in the classroom for in-person learning whenever possible. But she said due to the staffing shortages, schools will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
    BOSTON (CBS) – More than 150 Boston Public Schools staff members are out sick ahead of the first day back from winter break, and the number is expected to grow as more employees take at-home COVID tests provided by the state. Mayor Michelle Wu and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brenda Cassellius were in Dorchester handing out COVID tests Monday morning. The city is working to distribute about 10,000 tests and masks that are available for every teacher and staff member in the district. Students are scheduled to return to the classroom on Tuesday. Cassellius said 40 staff members called out sick on Saturday, and an additional 115 did the same on Sunday ahead of the return to the classroom. Cassellius said this is a higher number of sick calls than the district normally deals with at this time of year. “It certainly does make for quite a challenge this week,” Cassellius said. The superintendent said the goal is to keep all schools open for in-person learning, but that situations would be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Cassellius said many central...
    Boston University mandated Title IX training that told faculty and students that they must “intervene” if a colleague or peer makes a politically incorrect compliment or joke. The training provided multiple-choice questions regarding “bystander intervention,” which informed faculty and students that they should intervene if they are a bystander of a politically incorrect situation, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon. One scenario read, “You’re in the cafeteria with two colleagues, Jessica and Kim, who is Asian. Jessica sees Kim’s phone background. It’s a picture of her and her husband. Jessica says “Oooh, your husband’s White? He’s good-looking! You two have to have lots of babies … half-Asian babies are the cutest.” The incorrect answer read, “Say nothing, Jesicca is giving Kim a compliment, and besides, Kim smiled,” according to the training. The correct answer read, “Intervene. Kim might have felt uncomfortable about Jessica making comments about her race, her husband’s appearance, or the prospect of having children.” Even though the woman “smiled” at the compliment, the training explains, she still “might have felt uncomfortable” about comments relating...
    The Curley K-8 School in Jamaica Plain will continue its 10-day closure in the face of a coronavirus outbreak, Boston officials say, going against the wishes of Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeff Riley, who’d asked that students and staff return earlier. At least 46 people at the school tested positive for coronavirus from Oct. 22 to Nov. 7 across 21 different classrooms. That prompted the Boston Public Health Commission to shut the school down, causing a switch to remote learning. The school closed on Wednesday and was set to reopen on Nov. 22 — but that garnered pushback from Riley, who appeared to chastise the district on Friday for closing the school without appropriate consultation with DESE. In a letter to school officials, Riley said he wouldn’t count all the remote learning days towards the yearly 180 school day requirement, suggesting that students and staff return on Nov. 17 or risk having to make up three days. In the ongoing back and forth between Riley and BPS, Superintendent Brenda Cassellius and Boston Public Health Commission Executive Director...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox will head to Houston Thursday afternoon and then hold a workout at Minute Maid Park ahead of Friday’s Game 1 of the ALCS against the Astros. At some point during the day, Boston Alex Cora will name his starting pitchers for Games 1 and 2. But Cora indicated Wednesday that he will once again be aggressive with his pitching staff, taking an “everyone be ready” approach with the first two games of the series. That paid off in Boston’s ALDS win over the Tampa Bay Rays, and it also worked out pretty well back in 2018 when Cora employed Nathan Eovaldi the famous “rover” role during Boston’s run to a World Series title.
