The Plunge for Pete, Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester
Icy water was taken to new levels at yesterday’s third annual Plunge 4 Pete, an event started by Ice Bucket Challenge founder Pete Frates.
More than 500 people braved the waters of Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester in unseasonably warm weather yesterday to help raise money and awareness for ALS.
That is more than double the number of people who took part last year, thanks largely to Frates’ Ice Bucket Challenge fundraiser for ALS that went viral over the summer.
The Plunge 4 Pete yesterday raised thousands of dollars for ALS.

2014 Bostonians of the Year: Market Basket employees
The grocery chain’s 25,000 workers risked their jobs to support a benevolent leader and highlighted that a company formula of low prices and good wages can succeed.
It was a riveting business story that became an even more compelling human interest story. When Arthur T. Demoulas, beloved president of the New England grocery chain called Market Basket, was fired in June, who could have anticipated what happened next? An employee walkout and customer boycott to demand Artie T.’s return, actions that crippled the business and stretched out for six weeks. Arthur T.’s cousin and rival Arthur S. Demoulas, together with his affiliated shareholders, was finally forced to sell the company to Artie T.
The 25,000 employees — many with decades of service and working alongside their husbands, mothers, sons, aunts — showed incredible devotion to a boss and remarkable stamina and determination. They knew their pay and benefits were unmatched in today’s cutthroat world of retail and gambled that if they stuck to their protests, they could emerge victorious. They caught the attention of customers, governors, US labor secretaries past and present, CEOs and business scholars from all over. When the company sale was announced in late August and employees returned to work, the joy was contagious. People who had never shopped a Market Basket before just had to visit to see what the fuss was about.
For showing such pluck and perseverance and power, we’re calling the Market Basket employees our 2014 Bostonians of the Year.

With the Loin Girdle
The regrettably named Norwegian underwear brand Comfyballs was all set to make its big debut in the U.S. this year when it was shut down by the country’s patent and trademark office. A trademark on Comfyballs, USPTO argued, was just too vulgar for Americans to accept.

President Barack Obama declared the end of America's "outdated approach" to Cuba Wednesday, announcing the re-establishment of diplomatic relations as well as economic and travel ties with the communist island - a historic shift in U.S. policy that aims to bring an end to a half-century of Cold War enmity.

Judy, the very friendly Bikini Girl demonstrates, "How to find your own backside with both hands".
Make a difference this Monday morning. Identify a Left Leaning, Obama voting, Gun Grabbing, Progressive Liberal. Then, from behind this individual, grasp firmly by the forearms and in one motion, plant both hands directly on his or her own backside while whispering "THERE IT IS, FOR CRAP SAKE! Don't lose it".
Get yourself some coffee and have a nice day. You know what to do.
