Eight dollars for a clock radio? No wonder they were our 'favorite' store
My clock radio is an Emerson with AM/FM radio, two alarms, and a self-adjusting clock with an overly bright seven-segment LED readout that lights up the whole room Smurf-blue at night even on the “dim” setting. Which is why for the last ten years, the ...

Stuck in 'Funkytown'
At the dawn of the '80s, I lived across from a Hoboken, N.J., bar whose jukebox apparently had only two songs:Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2' and 'Funkytown' by Lipps Inc. The bar stayed open until 2 a.m. every night and it wasn't the ...

The labor union representing Providence Journal employees who work as inserters for the paper have filed federal charges against new owner GateHouse Media. Business Agent Matthew Maini with the Teamsters Local 251, which represents the nearly 60 inserters in the Journal's production side, said that the charges were recently made with the federal government's National Labor Relations Board against the... "We have filed the complaint NLRB for "effects bargaining" -- any changes to the workforce, the company is required to bargain with the union, for unilateral changes to the working conditions, which they haven't," said Maini. The news that previous owner A. H. Belo was selling the Providence Journal to GateHouse Media was first reported by GoLocal last June. "GateHouse's acquisition of the Providence Journal may be as much about the printing as the paper," wrote GoLocal at the time, noting that GateHouse, which went in and out of bankruptcy in 2013, describes itself as a "business model is to be the... "Since the Journal has been acquired by GateHouse, they've systematically gutted the Guild, and they continue to do so," said Maini. Maini represents UPS Package Car Drivers and members at Allied Aviation, Centrex, DonMar, McLaughlin & Moran, and Twin River, in addition to the Journal.
(Dee dee dee dee dee, duh dee dee dah dee) God help me, my root-file song is “Funkytown. It’s your default song, the one that plays when nothing else is going on in your head — when you’re not even aware it’s playing. At the dawn of the ’80s, I lived across from a Hoboken, N. J. , bar whose jukebox apparently had only two songs:Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2’ and ‘Funkytown’ by Lipps Inc. The bar stayed open until 2 a. m. every night and it wasn’t the kind of place where you could go over and ask them to turn down the volume. At the dawn of the ’80s, I lived across from a Hoboken, N. J. , bar whose jukebox apparently had only two songs: Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” and “Funkytown” by Lipps Inc. The bar stayed open until 2 a. m. every night and it wasn’t the kind of place where you could go over and ask them to turn down the volume. After extensive research into the subject — OK, I asked around the office and on Facebook this week — it turns out that not everyone has a root-file song. Some people have an ever-changing mental playlist depending on their moods or what they heard on the radio that morning. (Writes one acquaintance, “Sometimes good — Beatles’ ‘No Reply’ — sometimes NSG: Archies’ ‘Sugar, Sugar.
In my defense, even I realized Michele Bachmann, married to a guy who says he converts gays to straights and who’s a dead ringer for Chaz Bono, was going nowhere. Continue reading below. Nevertheless, here we go with a rundown of 2015. . . This week, two trials are scheduled to start: Aaron Hernandez, charged with murder, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, with the Marathon bombings. The former Patriot’s trial will be televised because it’s in a state court, the alleged terrorist’s will not, because it’s in federal court, which does not allow cameras. He’s there every day — why not. Soon after, the US Olympic Committee picks Boston. Boston 2024 will then promise to hold public hearings and release all financial details of its Olympics bid immediately after Halley’s Comet next swings by. Through it all, Elizabeth Warren will continue to say “I am not running for president” and... Coach Belichick, not realizing cameras are on, will smile, and Marty Walsh will plan a rolling rally. But no one can utter “Gentlemen, mount your ducks. The day after, the president announces that in the spirit of bipartisanship, he will embrace the entire GOP agenda.
