Garfield Middle School Lands Large Grant for School Re-Design

April 1, 2016 By Journal Staff-Seth Daniel The Garfield Middle School has been chosen as one of two schools statewide to participate in a $450,000 grant program by the Center for Collaborative Education – a grant that will try to bring the middle school in line with the high school’s Student Centered Learning model. “It will be an effort to expand what’s happening at the high school already,” said Supt. Dianne Kelly. “We want to have Student-Centered Learning at all schools in the future. This will be the first time we’ve expanded the model beyond the high school, which is significant.” The Center for Collaborative Education said the time is now to change the way teachers introduce information to students. “As the state’s student population grows more diverse, the one-size-fits-all model of schooling from the past will not close achievement gaps or produce citizens who are equipped with the knowledge, …

Annette Kellerman: Hollywood’s first nude star appeared at Revere Beach in 1907

By Justin Parkinson BBC News Magazine 20 February 2016 In 1907, Kellerman was arrested on Revere Beach, Boston, for wearing one of her suits without a skirt. But the judge accepted it had been designed for exercise and was decent, provided she wore a skirt until entering the water. t’s 100 years since Annette Kellerman became the first person to appear nude in a Hollywood film. But this was just one of many remarkable events in her life. She sat naked on a tree branch, her arms stretched upwards, but her hair largely covered her breasts. It might not seem very risque today, but this scene, from a film released in 1916, was an important event in the history of film. Annette Kellerman is regarded as the first star – male or female – to appear nude in a mainstream Hollywood production. The fantasy drama A Daughter of the Gods …

(WBZ-TV) Maureen Sullivan is one of many residents in the area who are putting the pieces back together on Monday. “Who’s going to pay for all the damage that’s done?” she asked. Revere has spent about $2 million trying to fix a floodgate, which is supposed to prevent the tide from flowing over a gully and gushing into the neighborhood. But the floodgate was so cold this weekend that it froze open, turning yards into crunchy, salty ice rinks.   Saltwater flooded into a Revere neighborhood over the weekend, creating ice skating rink-type yards.
