Of Course There's a Market Basket Protest Song (And it's Really Kind of Good) …
You might have thought that customers and employees involved in the Market Basket saga had finally exhausted the different methods of showing their support for Arthur T. Demoulas. You thought wrong. A Merrimack Valley-based band " Monkey Knife Fight" has created a Market Basket protest anthem, and it's pretty good.

Today, runners from @RunKeeper beat a Green Line train during a race along the tracks. #MBTA #OutRuntheT
Runners Beat an MBTA Green Line Train In a Race …
Their progress was live-streamed, and the winner took home bragging rights. Update: It's official: in some cases it's easier to run through Boston than it is to rely on the Green Line's B branch. On Friday, a group of runners from RunKeeper set out on foot to see if they could beat an MBTA trolley traveling between the Boston College and Blandford Street stations.

Patriots Training Camp Observations: Jimmy Garoppolo Struggles …
FOXBORO, Mass. - It will be a while before Jimmy Garoppolo plays his first meaningful NFL snap if all goes as planned, and after watching Friday's training camp practice, that's best for all parties involved. The rookie New England Patriots quarterback struggled in his second career training camp practice, completing 3-of-7 passes in 11-on-11s and going 3-for-8 in 7-on-7s.

Jessica Ridilla wears her Google Glass in the biology lab at Brandeis University, filming experiments with a camera that comes embedded in the high-tech spectacles. She also dons the device at concerts, the airport, and on the street - anywhere she thinks a tiny, voice-controlled computer might come in handy.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Cleveland won the backing of a Republican National Committee panel on Tuesday, all but guaranteeing the GOP's next presidential pick will accept the party's nomination there in 2016. The Republicans' site selection committee backed Cleveland over Dallas and the full 168-member RNC is expected to ratify the choice next month.

America is in love with Maine's Acadia National Park. Well, at least fans of "Good Morning America" are. When the show asked viewers to send in their favorite place in America this month, the nominations poured in. The five finalists other than Acadia were Chicago's Lakefront, Glacier National Park in Montana, Gulf Shores in Alabama, and Lake Tahoe.

Do new parking apps pass the test? - The Boston Globe …
I'm an optimist, and so despite almost 15 years of searching for parking, getting ticketed, and being towed in Boston, I still believe that something will eventually mitigate the misery. Several new mobile apps promise to do that. So I loaded them on my iPhone this month and set out in search of parking.
