NCAA hockey title game a local affair for BU, Providence – The Oakland Press
BOSTON >> Boston University coach David Quinn has a chance to become a hero on campus and a pariah at the country club all at the same time.
The Rhode Island native and former BU player will be on the bench when the Terriers face Providence in the NCAA hockey championship Saturday night. It would be BU’s sixth men’s hockey title; Providence is looking for its first.
“I know it’s been a long time coming for Providence. It’s been a great program for a long time,” Quinn said Friday, a day after the Terriers advanced to the title game with a 5-3 victory over North Dakota in the Frozen Four semifinals. “I’m happy for the team. I’m happy for the school. But I will be happier to beat them.”
Quinn’s divided loyalty is symbolic of the local flavor at this year’s Frozen Four, where two Hockey East teams about an hour’s drive apart will compete for the national championship at Boston’s TD Garden.
With Hobey Baker Award winner Jack Eichel, a freshman who led the nation in scoring, BU (28-7-5) finished atop the conference in the regular season and won its postseason tournament; Providence (25-13-2) finished second before losing in the quarterfinals and waiting for an invitation to the NCAAs.
“We felt like we had a second life,” PC coach Nate Leaman said. “We had a near miss. I think it was probably a good thing for us, because it increased our level of desperation, it brought us together, I think, as a group, and we’ve been playing our best hockey.”
The teams met twice during the season – each winning on the road in the fall. The 4-1 loss to BU on Oct. 31 dropped the Friars to 1-3-1.
“They took it to us that first night. But the second night we rebounded, and that’s been our philosophy all year,” Providence forward Shane Luke said. “We’re a pretty tight-knit group. When things don’t go the right way, you have to stick together. This year we had a lot of ups and downs, and during the times we were down we came together.”
For the Terriers, the rebound has been two years in the making.
A BU player from 1984-88 and an assistant on the BU team that won the school’s last title, in 2009, Quinn took over the BU job from Jack Parker when he retired after 40 years in 2013. The Terriers went 10-21-4 in his first season.
A year later, they have a chance at the national championship. But to get it, the native of Cranston, Rhode Island, and member of the Wannamoisett Country Club in East Providence will have to go through the Friars.
“I’ve been engaged in a lot of fun text exchanges since last night,” Quinn said, adding that he couldn’t share any without cleaning up the language. “A lot of guys loved me going into last night’s game and a lot of them don’t like me now.”
NCAA Year in Review: Boston University, Colgate, and Providence
As the NCAA women’s hockey season winds down, writers Gabriella Fundaro and William Whyte are taking an in-depth look at how each team has shaped up in 2018-19. It’s time to look at the Eastern teams that almost but didn’t quite make it.
Gabriella: After losing a 67-point scorer and a 57-point scorer from last season (Victoria Bach and Rebecca Leslie, respectively) I don’t think anyone expected the Terriers to keep pace, let alone improve. But Jesse Compher and Sammy Davis emerged as the team’s new go-to scorers, Corinne Schroeder settled beautifully into the starting role in net, and BU went from sixth place in Hockey East (8-11-5, 14-17-6 overall) to third (15-6-6, 21-8-8 overall).
It seems like goaltending was the biggest difference for the Terriers, but I don’t think the play of Compher should be understated, either. Before the season, I thought she was an easy pick to have a breakout year, but she went above and beyond that, leading Hockey East in scoring with 61 points and earning a nod as a Patty Kazmaier top-10 finalist. What aspect of BU’s season, and their improvements overall, most impressed you?
William: Of all the non-CHA teams whose season ended last weekend, BU are probably the most satisfied with the year they just had. They lost Bach and Leslie, and looked ready to take a big step back, but once they found their stride they were very dangerous and ended the season ranked in the polls and one-win-and-some-luck away from an at-large bid to the national tournament.
They had a narrow loss to BC in November, which already seemed like a better result than BU was expecting on paper. What really got people’s attention, though, was a weekend sweep of BC (again) ten days later. Then Compher caught fire: she went from a respectable eight points in her first seven games, to 16 in her first ten, to 31 in her first sixteen — from just above a point per game to just below two. Compher ignited Davis, who had two nine-game points streaks during the season and ended on 52 points, not bad for coming back from an injury year.
Compher is unusual among superstars in that the stats show her primarily as a playmaker: she had 17 goals and 44 assists to make up her 61 points. That seems like very few goals for that many points, and it is. Looking at players who scored 40 or more points this season, Compher was one of only four to have her goals make up less than a third of her points. (The average is .84, and seven players got more than half their points from goals). Whatever the opposite of a puck hog is, Compher’s that. Her value wasn’t just her own aggressiveness, but how she brought up her linemates, Davis and thirteen-goal, six-assist Mackenna Parker. That kind of good play seems easier to sustain than the play of a sniper who hits a hot streak.
I suppose I’m most impressed by how BU keep it going. They lose Poulin and suddenly Sarah Lefort is setting the program record for goals. They lose Lefort and there are Bach and Leslie to take up the slack. They lose Bach and Leslie after a disappointing season and come back stronger than ever with Compher and Davis. The highest scoring senior they graduate is Reagan Rust with only 13 points. Next year they could be scary good.
Stick taps: BU won its very first Beanpot title as a varsity program in thrilling fashion, first knocking off Northeastern in a shootout and then defeating Harvard in overtime of the title game on this dazzling play from Compher and Davis.
Losing an edge: For as much progress as the Terriers saw this year, they did not get off to a very good start to the season, winning just one of their first seven games.
Gabriella: I thought the Raiders might have a little more left in them after a very solid ending to the regular season, but after falling to Clarkson in the ECAC semifinals, they didn’t have the overall resume to warrant a bid into the NCAA Tournament. It’s a clear step back for last year’s national runner-ups, as they had to regroup after losing several major contributors to graduation. That was especially evident over the first half of the season, when the Raiders suffered losses to Penn State, Ohio State, and Brown, went winless in a series against Mercyhurst, and tied Robert Morris and Quinnipiac.
The outlook got brighter as the season wore on, though. Jessie Eldridge, Malia Schneider, and Shae Labbe emerged as one of the NCAA’s most dynamic trios up front. Olivia Zafuto shined as the team’s No. 1 D. They ended the regular season on an eight-game unbeaten streak. Unfortunately for the Raiders, they couldn’t translate that into postseason success. Did you see a big difference in Colgate’s play from the beginning of the year to the end, and did you expect them to wrap up so early this year?
William: Whatever about overall depth, the ECAC is certainly the conference with the best top-four teams, and that makes it easy to slip down from the very top. Colgate lost more scoring to graduation than anyone but Northeastern and that was always going to make them vulnerable. In fact, they didn’t slip too much on the scoring — from 145 goals for last year, to 133 this year. Their problems were defensive. They went from 65 goals allowed to 96, almost a full goal more per game played.
Some of this seems to have been directly on the goaltending, unfortunately. Julia Vandyk had a career year last year, with a .929 save percentage overall but a .946 save percentage across the three games of the NCAA tournament. This year her overall percentage was .911 and her percentage since the start of February was just .904.
But that change in save percentage doesn’t account for all the extra goals, and it shows that the Raiders were also letting up more shots. Last year they played a high-energy game based on tight D, close support on the backcheck, and a speedy transition that took the other team by surprise. Wherever the puck was, there was a Raider crashing the play and another behind her to clean up. It was very effective, if not very structured to the casual eye, but had to be exhausting for the team, and I wonder if last year’s seniors, Greg Fargo’s first freshman class, had bought into it more than any other class could be expected to.
Next year Colgate graduate even more of their scoring — 163 of this year’s total 333 points were scored by seniors. The good news is that 165 of their points were scored by underclassmen. Yes, they have only two juniors! And those are a defender who transferred from BC, and their backup goalie! So if they can weather the storm next year, the year after might be another one to watch.
Stick taps: Jessie Eldridge became the first player in program history to score 30 goals in a single season, and was also the school’s first Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award top-10 finalist.
Losing an edge: In ECAC play, the Raiders had a huge wake-up call in their first game against Princeton, when they were outscored 6-0.
Olivia Zafuto was the third highest scoring defender in the country this season, after BC’s Megan Keller and Northeastern’s Skylar Fontaine.Michelle Jay
William: Bob Deraney coached Providence from league champions in 2004-05 all the way down to a .229 win percentage in 2014-15 and back up to .554 last year, their first above-.500 season since 2011, and then unexpectedly decamped to China where he was thrown into the same coaching meatgrinder that chewed up Digit Murphy last year. His successor, Matt Kelly, was from outside the program and outside the standard coaching career path, having spent four years as USA Hockey’s Women’s National Team’s head scout. You would think Kelly’s expertise was more in recruiting than in coaching, but he took a team made entirely of Deraney’s recruits and brought it to a win percentage of .676, the highest since 2003 and the second highest of the NCAA era. Katie King Crowley and Courtney Kennedy’s work with the U18 National Team kickstarted BC’s rise to national prominence; maybe Kelly’s national team experience will help build a similar powerhouse just down I-95.
And yet… for all that they had that high win percentage, and for all that they were ranked for a lot of this season, and for all that Maureen Murphy emerged as an elite player this season (especially in the first half, which she ended in fourth place in points per game and leading the country in goals per game)… for all that, Providence didn’t seem quite as dangerous this year as they did last year. Holy Cross entering Hockey East inflated everyone’s win percentage and goal difference, and cut down massively on out of conference (OOC) games. Providence didn’t exactly aim high with its remaining OOC games, replacing games against Cornell and Princeton from last year’s schedule with … Bemidji and Penn State. They had a win against BC, but BC was missing its Four Nations players. They had a weekend sweep against a solid Merrimack. But there was no real statement win that you could point to and say “this team’s elite”. Arguably, their two best wins came right at the end of the regular season when they weren’t really in the ranking conversation any more: a 5-2 victory over a Northeastern team that just wanted to get to the finish line, and a 2-1 victory over a BU that was fighting for a tournament at-large bid.
So which Providence is real? The one that looked good but maybe wasn’t? The one that people had stopped paying attention to but that might have been good? Something else? And what will happen next year?
Gabriella: While there’s no shortage of parity in women’s hockey lately, consistency is much harder to come by; that’s the mark of any truly great team. And for as good as the Friars showed they could be, they didn’t quite have that consistency from beginning to end. Losing two games each to BU and BC in January showed they still have a bit of work to do to compete with the conference’s best and regularly turn out results in those games, but this first season under Kelly’s guidance is definitely encouraging. Opponents seemed to figure out how to neutralize Murphy, so we’ll see if she can take a step forward next year and separate herself from the pack, and if the team can develop more weapons around her so the focus isn’t always on her.
Although they seemed to slip over the second half of the year, I really liked where Providence ended up. After those big wins against Northeastern and BU, they knocked a tough Merrimack team out of the playoffs in two games, holding the Warriors to one goal over that series. When they faced Northeastern again in the semifinals, they hardly looked like a team that was going to get run over. They gave the eventual Hockey East champions a good run, outshooting the Huskies 34-18 and keeping it a one-goal game for the entire 60 minutes. Like you say, I think people (myself included) might have counted the Friars out at that point, but they did an impressive job of regrouping and figuring out what works for them at the most critical point in the season.
Stick taps: Maureen Murphy led the nation in goals per game right up to January 18th (when she was displaced by, of course, Loren Gabel).
Losing an edge: Maureen Murphy wasn’t even in the top 100 in the nation in goals per game from January 19th to the end of the season.
Providence beats Boston University 4-3 for NCAA hockey title – The Denver Post
BOSTON — Providence defenseman Tom Parisi thought he was just dumping the puck in from the red line so the Friars could get some fresh skaters on the ice.
Boston University goalie Matt O’Connor thought he had it. Easy.
But after the puck fluttered into his glove, more a blooper than a line drive, O’Connor lost track of it. He opened his hand, the puck dropped below him, and as the BU junior scooted back to cover the net, he kicked it in for the tying score.
“I go back to the bench and guys are saying, ‘That went in,’” Parisi said. “I don’t even know what to say. I was stunned. The second that went in, I knew we had it.”
Officially, it was a couple of minutes later that Brandon Tanev scored to give the Friars the lead with 6:17 remaining. Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player Jon Gillies stopped 49 shots, and Providence held on to beat BU 4-3 on Saturday night for its first NCAA hockey title.
It was the third straight year that the NCAA has crowned a first-time champion.
Anthony Florentino and Mark Jankowski also scored for the Friars (26-13-12). The Hockey East runners-up earned the last at-large berth in 16-team NCAA Tournament, but they won it all by beating the school that edged them out for the conference title.
“I think that’s what makes it a little bit sweeter. That BU team is, they were terrific,” Providence coach Nate Leaman said. “It’s kind of a little bit like our season: We started a little bit slow but we got better and better. We played a pretty good third period, and obviously got a big bounce.
And we had a heck of a bounce, and I think that got our bench alive a little bit.”
BU (28-8-5) was seeking its sixth championship in a virtual home game, protecting a 3-2 lead when O’Connor seemed to field a harmlessly lofted puck. But then he doubted whether he had caught it after all.
“I couldn’t really see it in my glove. I thought it rolled out of it. I tried to drop and throw it to Jack (Eichel) and it was too late,” O’Connor said. “Everyone in this locker room deserves a lot better. They deserve to be hoisting the national championship right now.”
Tanev scored off a faceoff to give the Friars the lead, and Gillies helped protect it with a diving save against Nick Roberto in the final minutes.
The PC fans who made the hour drive from the Rhode Island capital drowned out the sound of the final buzzer, and the players stormed over the boards to celebrate. It was the school’s second trip to the Frozen Four, its first since 1985.
BU players skated slowly over to O’Connor to console him after the loss. Providence players also tried to lift his spirits in the handshake line.
“As a goalie, you feel for a bounce like that,” Gillies said. “And you’ve been there, so you know the bottomless feeling that it presents. … You know that nothing you say right there can help, but just trying to get him lift his head up and realize he played an unbelievable year as a whole.”
Ahti Oksanen and Danny O’Regan scored an NCAA Tournament-record 4 seconds apart for the Terriers to overcome an early deficit, and Cason Hohmann gave BU a 3-2 lead in the second period. O’Connor stopped 39 shots.
But his gaffe cost BU the lead in a building where it had won so many times in the Beanpot and Hockey East championships — including both tournaments this season. In all, the Terriers came into Saturday night with a 42-22-0 record at the TD Garden since it opened in 1995.
Oksanen tied it at 1 midway through the first period, then Hobey Baker Award winner Eichel won the ensuing faceoff and skated into the Friars’ zone before sliding the puck over to O’Regan for another goal. The previous record for fastest goals was 5 seconds apart, set by Michigan in the 1948 championship game against Dartmouth.
Jankowski made it 2-2 early in the second and Hohmann put BU back on top midway through the period. It stayed that way for 20 minutes as the game settled into a lull before O’Connor’s mistake gave new energy to the Friars.
BU called a timeout with 6:19 left. On the ensuing faceoff, Tanev picked up the puck in the slot and wristed it in for the go-ahead goal.
Terriers coach David Quinn, in his second season since replacing longtime mentor Jack Parker, pulled O’Connor with 1:50 to play, and BU put sustained pressure on Gillies. The Terriers came closest to tying it when Roberto picked up a rebound with Gillies out of position, but the goalie dove back and got his arm onto the ice to stop the shot and protect the lead.
The Friars were the preseason favorite to win in Hockey East, but they stumbled early and BU won the regular-season and conference tournament titles. PC won two games in the Providence regional to reach the Frozen Four, and then had another virtual home game against Nebraska-Omaha on Thursday to make it to the championship game.
Peter Pan Bus Lines | Better. Quicker. Safer.
Can’t find a better DC to NYC bus and the price is nice too. No complaints overall. Traveled with about a half dozen drivers over the past few months and I’ve been impressed!
Washington DC to New York City Traveler
I’ve taken Peter Pan 30 times and never had a single issue – in fact most of the time they dropped me off early!
Peter Pan Traveler
I rode from Boston to Hyannis and back. The buses were very clean and I felt safe in regards to the pandemic. The driver on the bus on the way down was so professional and courteous!
I just wanted to say that Operator David was one of the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful bus drivers I have had in a long time. I have been taking buses most months for the last 7 years from all different companies and he was one of the best. He should be praised for his kindness. You also had good wifi which many companies do not so thank you for that too!
Cape Cod Traveler
Honestly my FAVORITE bus line! Super clean and easy way to and from NYC. Staff is always very kind and helpful (Special shout to Dell and Dennis)
Very affordable last minute r/t ride NYC to Philly express – bus stations on both ends with amenities like roofs and bathrooms and coffee. Both directions left and arrived on time.
NYC – Philadelphia Express Passenger
Caught this bus last minute at Port Authority in Time Square. I like that I didn’t have to wait outside for my bus! My driver name was so friendly and accommodated me with my bags because I had a baby with me. Their customer service skills were definitely on point! The driver drove safe and got us there on time, actually we were 15 mins early. I will definitely be taking this bus again!
I don’t know when I will again. What I can promise is that the next time I need to travel by bus I will definitely be using Peter Pan.
NYC to Washington D.C. Traveler
Inexpensive, bus left and arrived on schedule, clean facilities. We did not experience any inconveniences, and we were even allowed to take an earlier bus when we arrived before our scheduled departure. No complaints!
My driver, Jennifer, was fantastic! We ran into some very stormy weather just as we approached Boston and the traffic was very bad. She got off I93 and navigated us through Quincy and eventually back on to 93. I’m sure she saved us some time and our bus was only about 20 minutes late. Both drivers made announcements and kept us up to date on the situation (this especially on the ride back in the thunderstorms).
Cape Cod Traveler
Our bus trip was the best ever! We departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule; our bus drivers were personable and professional. There was plenty of seat room, the bus was super clean, plus wifi and USB outlets to stay connected. Win-win!! Overall, a really pleasant experience. I’ll definitely use Peter Pan Bus Lines again!
We purchased a round trip ticket from DC to NYC. The ride on 1/10 from DC to NYC at 1pm, the drivers were amazing and friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed our ride.
Washington D.C. to NYC Travelers
Operator Victoria said she had some tricks up her sleeves with regard to the traffic they were experiencing. Boy did she ever! Her knowledge of the roads and creativity in using her knowledge inventive always in the safest manner. Congratulate her again from a native, experienced NY driver – it’s a thrill to see a “pro” in action.
Just wanted to say how happy I was with my trip from Providence to the airport in Boston on Jan. 20 (1:30 p.m. bus). The driver was excellent! It was my first time using Peter Pan and I will be quick to recommend. Thanks for the great service!
Providence to Boston Logan Airport Traveler
I have been a regular, weekly customer on the 10:15AM Boston-Springfield bus. Almost every time, my driver is Everett. Where he stands out – in my opinion – is in his calm, clear, concise announcements, especially as we are drawing near to Springfield’s Union Terminal. And from his tone of voice, I can hear his concern that everyone is clear about staying on the bus or transferring to another bus for a destination.
Boston – Springfield Traveler
I’m writing this note regarding Peter Pan Bus services to the Cape. From start to return what an exceptional experience. At every stop/transfer the bus drivers were very informative and helpful, especially Operator Paul when leaving the Falmouth Station and Frank – so much pride for his job and company. I also found your buses comfortable and clean.
Cape Cod Traveler
My daughter is traveling home on the noon bus from South Station to Springfield and she said the buses are SO clean! Kudos to the garages and cleaners in this crazy time. She had to get out of Boston and her tiny apartment as the company she works for is on remote work only.
Boston to Springfield Traveler
Everyone at Peter Pan was extremely helpful and went above and beyond. Would I recommend them? -without a doubt!!
Peter Pan Traveler
Our morning ride was scheduled from Baltimore to NY at 7am, we arrived in NY 15 min early. 8PM ride back to Baltimore left at 8PM and we arrived 20 min early. Both drivers were friendly, both buses were clean both buses had adequate temperatures and neither were filled to capacity
Baltmore-NYC Express Traveler
At the beginning of our trip, our bus driver delivered our rules. The message was loud and clear- this is a shared space, and it is expected that you respect that and your fellow passengers. After our driver set the tone, I had the most relaxed 4 hr ride to Boston! Thank you!
NYC – Boston EXPRESS Traveler
I’ve been taking Peter Pan buses for the past 15 years and it’s the only bus line I use because why fix something that isn’t broken? Peter Pan is tried and true and has gained my loyalty. The drivers are very professional, drive safely, and keep us updated on target arrival times. The buses themselves are extremely comfortable with lots of leg room and decently wide seats.

Providence Rhode Island History | City Founding & Key Events
Providence was founded in 1636 by renegade preacher Roger Williams, who was forced to flee Massachusetts because of religious persecution. Williams purchased land from the Narragansett Indians and started a new settlement with a policy of religious and political freedom. He named his new home “Providence,” in thanks to God for protecting him during his exile from Massachusetts.
Easily accessible by water, Providence became a major New World seaport. During the Revolutionary War, Providence’s craftspeople and merchants supplied goods to the Continental and French armies. Ever the entrepreneurs, Providence businesses were financing expeditions to the Mediterranean, Middle East and Far East by 1781. With trade booming, the city grew and flourished. Traditional wooden homes began yielding to ornate brick mansions and citizens constructed elaborate testaments to business, government, and learning. Many of these, like the Rhode Island State House and the Providence Public Library, can be toured today.
The Great New England Hurricane of 1938 wove a path of death and destruction through the city, with a tidal-wave like storm surge and wind gusts of more than 100 miles per hour. The storm’s effect on Rhode Island was so severe that earthquake instruments 3,000 miles away recorded it on seismographs. In 1954, Hurricane Carol caught Rhode Island by surprise and Providence suffered a great amount of concentrated damage – upwards of $41 million. Gusts of wind, at a rate of 72 to 100 miles per hour, blew into Providence, while portions of the downtown area sat under eight feet of water.
In the late 1970s, the City began to upgrade the infrastructure of the neighborhoods, downtown and commercial districts. For decades, the world’s widest bridge had obscured the Moshassuck and Woonasquatucket Rivers, two narrow, but significant waterways which snake through the city of Providence and converge to become the Providence River, the head of Narragansett Bay. In the 1990s, the two rivers running through downtown were uncovered and moved.
Today, those two rivers are edged by cobblestone walkways, flanked by park benches, trees and flowering plants, and bisected by a series of graceful Venetian bridges connecting downtown Providence to the city’s East Side. In keeping with this old-world flair, visitors may glide lazily through the waterways in one of the city’s gilded gondolas. The centerpiece of this revitalization is WaterPlace Park, which boasts a stone-stepped amphitheater for summer concerts and serves as the starting point for Providence’s world-renowned WaterFire, a multi-sensory art installation of nearly 100 dancing bonfires that wind along the Providence River.
Providence also boasts a flourishing cultural and academic community. The Tony Award-winning Trinity Repertory Company and the Providence Performing Arts Center are not only historic landmarks, but also feature Broadway musicals, children’s performances, popular seasonal ballets, opera, plays and musical concerts. Students and alumni of Brown University, Providence College and Rhode Island College bring vitality to the city’s intellectual life. The famous Rhode Island School of Design lends the city a hipster cool, with many young artists coming to study and staying to begin their careers. The world’s largest culinary educator, Johnson & Wales University, has had a tremendous impact on Providence’s much-lauded restaurant scene.

Almost all drivers use a special app that shows the situation on the roads and in which ambushes the cops are sitting. Nobody wants to get caught on the radar of a cop, because if they stop it, it takes a lot of time – you and your car will be checked inside and out.
By the way, if the police stopped the car, then you cannot move / leave because any movement will be regarded as an attempt to hide / hide / throw something away, which means that your car will be inspected especially carefully.
There is a poster of a music festival hanging on the door of the police station – that’s what I understand “closer to the people”.
There are 2 multi-brand stores in the USA at affordable prices: Nordstrom Rack and Marshalls.
The first flagship store of the Irish brand Primark opened in autumn. With everything available at any price, the first week there were incredible queues just to get inside 🙂 So far, all British brands have failed in this market, Primark chose Boston, hoping for the support of the Irish.
In the summer, Shakespeare’s plays are shown for free in the city park 🙂 Harvard grounds, the private collection of Isabella Stewart and the Museum of Modern Art – all this pulls into separate posts, of course.
Tickets to museums are expensive, but you need to read the conditions – for example, one ticket to the Museum of Fine Arts is good for two visits, and all girls named Isabella will get to the private Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for free.There are free hours / days to visit, so with the right planning, the art can be enjoyed for free.
The tower in “prudential” is sometimes rented for private events, and musical evenings are often held in museums (for example, the orchestra gives Mozart in the Japanese garden), so before visiting, check out the announcements on the site.
I was very impressed by the Boston Holocaust Memorial (cooler only in Berlin!).
You should definitely go to the Boston library (as well as libraries in Philadelphia, New York and other cities, as these are places of power).
It is difficult to think of a better place for a picnic than Castle Island – there really is a castle (which for some reason can only be viewed with a guide – an unprecedented “scoop” for the states) and there is a wonderful green lawn overlooking the ocean and ships.
From the American impressionists, it is worth getting acquainted with the work of Childe Hassam.
What I haven’t seen in other cities yet are establishments like The Paint Bar in Boston: every evening visitors paint with acrylics while drinking wine.
In mid-October, several people with banners went on strike against Renoir under the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA). Legs grow out of this Instagram account Renoir sucks at painting – it is unpleasant for some to look at the ladies’ cheeks and butts of babies that are similar to the point of confusion and, in general, “freaks” from the pen of the great artist. They are on strike for (attention!) Aesthetic democracy – they say, they are imposing love on Renoir on the whole world, and this can be questioned. This is a case that is difficult to imagine in other countries.
Here’s a great Guardian article on the subject and insight:
It would be very boring to talk about poetry with someone who liked all poetry. Dislike is the root of true enjoyment. You need to have opinions. In order to love some artists, you have to hate others.

90,000 New cause of chronic inflammation in people living with HIV identified
A new study by Boston Medical Center researchers looked at the factors that contribute to chronic inflammation in people living with HIV.Scientists have determined that the reason lies in the inability to control the production of HIV RNA from existing HIV DNA, which is a potential driver of inflammation. The results, published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, highlight the need to develop new treatments for chronic inflammation in people living with HIV, Science Daily reports.
“Our research was aimed at identifying a possible link between latent-infected cells and chronic inflammation in people with HIV who have suppressed viral loads,” said Nina Lin, MD, a medical scientist at Boston Medical Center and Boston School of Medicine. university.
The study cohort consisted of 57 people on antiretroviral therapy. Scientists compared different rates of virus and inflammation in the blood among HIV-positive participants younger than 35 and older than 50. They also compared the ability of inflammation present in the blood to activate HIV production from silent cells to the HIV genome. The results showed that the inability to control the production of HIV RNA, even with antiretroviral drugs, is correlated with inflammation.
Study co-author, MD, infectious disease physician and researcher at Boston Medical Center, Manish Sagar, believes new therapies are needed to combat chronic inflammation in people with HIV. Since modern ARVs, while preventing new infections, do not interfere with HIV RNA production, which research suggests is a potential key factor in causing inflammation in people living with HIV.
The authors note that their findings need to be replicated in larger cohorts.And they hope that the presented study will serve as an impetus for the study and development of drugs that can stop the production of HIV RNA.
This study was supported in part by the National Institutes of Health and the Institute for Genomic Sciences at Boston University, with support from the Center for AIDS Research in Providence, Boston.
I studied at Boston University. 4 stories about studying at a private research university in the USA – articles, stories, publications
Aliya Ketebayeva , city – Nur -Sultan , hospitality management, @aliyakb
On choosing a university and admission
I wanted to study in the specialty Management in hospitality. And when choosing a university and a city, I took into account all factors: the composition of professors and their experience, the reputation of the university, the curriculum, the possibility of practice, safety. Boston University met all these criteria.
Before applying for training, I studied everything that graduates of this university wrote for my program, read the requirements for candidates. When I had questions about certain documents, I immediately contacted the program director.On the same day he gave a full detailed answer.
My advice to applicants: study the portfolio of professors, find students who have graduated from this specialty, for example, on LinkedIn, contact them and ask questions you are interested in regarding the quality of education and other aspects.
About the peculiarities of training
Boston University’s School of Hospitality Management or School of Hospitality Administration focuses on the practical side of learning. The program is divided into three semesters: the first and second are university studies, and the third is an internship at any hotel in the United States or abroad. The internship can be paid or free, it all depends on how you show yourself in the interview. In the United States, an F1 visa is only allowed to work at a university, but the School of Hospitality Management program provides training for F1 visa holders.
The school has a Marriott Career Center to help with resume writing and internship opportunities.
All professors in the school have achieved success in the hotel or restaurant business. They integrate their experience and knowledge into the learning process. Professors often invite speakers who are directly related to the hospitality industry and willingly share their experiences.
About the atmosphere
During training, we were given various kinds of projects. One was to put together a marketing plan to improve sales and revenue for a Boston restaurant.In this project, the professor divided us into teams of four to five people. Mine consisted of students from different countries. During the work, it was important to take into account that all people are different, with their own experience, culture, temperament. Such an experience hardens students, develops leadership qualities.
Boston – Ideal for Hospitality Training
What the university gave
Boston University’s School of Hospitality Management provides many references to students, shares all their knowledge to help them reach the heights in the industry.
Boston is the ideal destination for hospitality training. This city is a major tourist destination with many job opportunities.

On choosing a university and admission
I studied at the university under the Bolashak program. I tried to enroll abroad for an undergraduate program, but failed. Therefore, I decided to try my hand at the magistracy. First, he enrolled in language courses at the University of Texas at Austin. During his studies, he applied to various universities for master’s programs in economics. Received about five invitations. I chose Boston University because there was a strong program there, and the training was supposed to last a year.
The admission process is standard. I took TOEFL, GRE, collected letters of recommendation. I recommend preparing for all exams in advance, because now there are all the possibilities for this. It is important to understand what you want to do in the future. And, based on this, select the most suitable program.
About the peculiarities of training
The main feature is the level of training of students. Smart guys from all over the world gather at Boston University.We had an international group: students from China, Russia, Turkey, Latin America and Europe. Many of them already had experience of working in large companies. It was interesting to communicate and interact with them.
The learning process is built on student independence
The learning process is built on the independence of students. Many teachers are graduates of top universities. They are ready to answer all questions, but you must be able to process a large amount of information yourself.It all depends on the discipline and approach to learning. There is no time to slowly flow into the educational process, because it is quite intense.
About the atmosphere
Boston is the academic capital. In addition to Boston University, Harvard, MIT and other good universities are located there. Therefore, there is high competition between teachers and students.
Many buildings of the university are old, but are located along the streets. That is, the campus is integrated into the city. It is located on the banks of the Charles River, where students often walk.
The peculiarity of American universities is that they are well equipped from a technical point of view. The university has several libraries, research laboratories.
What the university gave
I had the opportunity to learn from the best teachers, compete with people from all over the world. I have learned to take a systematic approach to study and work. When I returned to Kazakhstan and got a job at one of the Big4 companies, in addition to technical knowledge, I was helped by the skills of the correct organization of work.
I made friends in different countries. At university, I also made friends with whom I still maintain close relations.

On choosing a university and admission
I became a Bolashak scholar for a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering – mechanical engineering – in 2010. At that time, fellows were given the opportunity to improve their English in language courses lasting from six months to one and a half years. Therefore, we were initially assigned to language schools, and preparation and admission to universities took place during training. Everyone wanted to get into language courses in big cities: New York, Miami or Boston. I was fortunate enough to take courses at Boston University. During the year of living and studying there, I fell in love with Boston, with its dynamic student atmosphere, the balance of city life and campus, nature.Therefore, I considered the universities that were there. I failed to enter Harvard or MIT, and I was lucky with Boston University.
In my opinion, it is important to prepare carefully. Many of us are procrastinators who do everything at the last minute. A good essay, high SAT and TOEFL scores require discipline and preparation. It is important to be active at school and have a good background, to present it competently.
About the peculiarities of training
The university benefits from a strong faculty, resource-rich laboratory and location. The university is located in a city that is the academic capital of the United States. For active, curious and knowledge-hungry people, Boston University has everything: teachers who are ready to explain the material again after lessons and answer all questions, laboratories where operating commercial companies conduct their tests, a large number of student communities and organizations for every taste , a fitness center with its own dance studio, climbing wall and Olympic pool.
A disadvantage for me was the large number of students studying at the university – more than 30,000.
With such a volume, it is possible to create a network only among its own direction, for example, among engineers.
About the atmosphere
I have heard it said among Americans that Boston University enrolls the children of wealthy parents who have failed to go to Harvard. Boston University is a private, one of the most expensive universities in the United States.

What the university gave
My years at Boston University are some of my brightest, most fulfilling and life-affirming. They influenced my future life, I made close friends there. The name of the university helps to pass the screening for the selection of jobs among a huge number of other resumes.
American universities are renowned for their resources and opportunities for fulfillment. I recommend that you understand early what you are interested in doing in life in order to reach your full potential.
Gaukhar Tergemesova, 30 years old, city – Almaty, project engineer, @ gaukhar_smile
On choosing a university and admission
I originally came to Boston University for English courses under the Bolashak program.
When it came time to decide which university to apply to, I consulted with professors and friends who had already studied in top places, compared curricula, location and additional opportunities for students. As a result, I chose six universities and went to four of them.
BU’s advantage over other universities was that it was located in the center of Boston. This opened up the opportunity to explore the culture of the city and Northeast America in general.Massachusetts is one of the first states where the first settlers from Europe immigrated. Therefore, here you can visit the places where the history of the country was born.
The university also offers all kinds of programs for the development of students, including study abroad. For example, in my second year I passed the selection and went to Germany.
For admission to any university in the United States, you need to become IELTS or TOEFL and SAT. Some institutions may require SAT-2.For example, I took physics and mathematics-2, as I entered the Electrical Engineering specialty. Then you need to complete the Common Application and write a motivational essay.
In order to improve my spoken English while preparing, I often talked with local students.
Thanks to them, she learned to imitate an American accent and use the local dialect.
About the peculiarities of training
Boston is known for the high concentration of universities and colleges in the city and in neighboring settlements – more than 100. And Boston University is famous because it was there that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone and Martin Luther King received his Ph.D.

The university is constantly expanding, new buildings and laboratories appear. And students often hear that a professor has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize or has been named a Nobel Prize winner.In the engineering department where I studied, projects were constantly developed and invented for different purposes. For example, one of the professors received an award for inventions in the field of engineering. He invented the blue LED light bulb, which is now widely used in the electronics industry. We had the opportunity to participate in such projects as assistants.
About the atmosphere
Boston University is one of the most internationally intensive. Gathers students from all over the world. During my studies, he was included in the top 20 universities with the most diverse composition of students.
