Tom Brady: 'I don’t have one cell in my body that ever tells me to run.' But #Patriots QB out to change that
Tom Brady thinks he can improve his mobility - The Boston Globe …
FOXBOROUGH - Tom Brady might be a 15-year veteran, but on Wednesday he talked about making improvements to his game as though he were a second-year starter. Brady was asked about the touchdown he threw to Danny Amendola against the Jets last week, a "scramble drill" play that saw Amendola work to stay open as Brady scanned the field and rolled to his left.

Chestnut Praline Is Starbucks' First New Holiday Latte in 5 Years …
We know, we know. You're sick of pumpkins. It's no secret that the past few fall seasons were completely hijacked by the PSL craze. From M&M's and oreos to lattes and beer, pumpkin spice has undeniably ruled the autumn - and holiday - roost. But that could be changing.

Yes on Question 2: Expand the bottle bill - The Boston Globe …
Question 2asks Massachusetts voters whether to expand the state's existing 30-year-old bottle deposit law and require deposits for non-alcoholic, non-carbonated beverage containers. The measure The expansion of the Bottle Bill is a sensible evolution of the original law. It would address the proliferation of plastic bottles and discourage litter.

In other words, you are welcome to continue to request your plastic-on-plastic cold cup, or your plastic-on-dual-layer-paper cup. And pay, or not pay, as determined by the discretion of the location owner. You can also do what other cold-weather iced coffee drinkers do: Bite the bullet and carry your java without a protective barrier.

Pew: Gaming Is Least Welcoming Online Space For Women …
As the ongoing, harassment-fueled controversy known as Gamergate rages into its second month with no sign of dying down, the Pew Research Center is out with new numbers on online harassment. They probably won't surprise you: 73 percent of respondents say they've faced some kind of threats or embarrassment online, mostly in the form of being called offensive names.

BOSTON (CBS) - I heard a rather fitting song on the way in this morning. Perhaps you're familiar with " Ramble On " by Led Zeppelin? I think it may summarize how many folks are feeling this Wednesday as they drive through the rain.

Reality check: How people catch Ebola, and how they don't (from BU researcher who studied Ebola thru 2 pregnancies)
Reality Check: How People Catch Ebola, And How They Don't …
Reality Check: How People Catch Ebola, And How They Don't It's confusing. You hear that Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan was so contagious that two Dallas nurses in protective gear caught the virus. But then you hear, in more recent days, that apparently nobody else did, including the inner circle who lived with him and cared for him.

Boston restaurants ladle out 8 great chowders …
Boston is a chowder town. It seems like every other restaurant has a version on its menu and, with Chowderfest taking a break this year, there's no one to tell us which way is up. So we stepped in. The Herald used a very complex sensory algorithm (we ate the stuff) to suss out the best chowders in the city.

Some Revere parents upset over Islam in curriculum …
REVERE, Mass. (WHDH) - Some parents in Revere were angry when they learned students were being taught about Islam and the Muslim religion. "No religion should be taught at school. In their paper it says Allah is their only God. That's insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only," said Anthony Giannino.
