Stats show subway safety is slipping Assaults on T increased over last year Number of T cops to shrink Despite uptick, riders feel safe Transit police are working to quash an increase in assaults on the subway system, but that effort may be tougher in a few weeks. On July 1, the number of Transit police officers is set to decrease by eight. Those positions will be reduced through attrition and they represent a small percent of the department’s nearly 260 officers. “As of right now it will have a minimal effect,” said Transit Police Chief Paul MacMillan. He said that the department will minimize the effect by using grant money to maintain high visibility patrols and by seeking more grants to eventually restore those positions. The Metro reviewed crime statistics posted by the MBTA on the Transit Police website.

Aggravated assault: Includes a weapon, which could range from a gun or a knife to a shoe or a foot. Assault and battery: Does not include a weapon and are more akin to a person being pushed. GET MORE METRO ONLINE: WWW.METRO.US

Those numbers showed that the assault and battery incidents on the main branch of the Green Line between Lechmere and Kenmore stations, as well as on the Red and Orange lines, are on pace to surpass last year’s totals. Aggravated assaults on the main branch of the Green Line and on the Orange Line are also on a similar pace. On the Orange Line, for example, there were 39 aggravated assaults and 163 assault and batteries during 2010. Through the first five months of this year there have been 31 aggravated assaults and 94 assault and batteries. MacMillan said police have noticed the uptick and are working to keep the numbers as low as possible. Where multiple assaults occurred, officials make sure those stations are manned by officers to help reduce the trend, MacMillan said. He also mentioned that while assaults have spiked, other crimes such as robberies are down or fairly stagnant. “One incident or robbery is one too many,” he said. “But when you put that in perspective of 1.3 million passengers a day, the system is relatively safe.” MICHAEL NAUGHTON

Do you feel safe riding the T?

“I feel safe. It’s something about Boston. It feels more like a community here.”

“Yeah. There’s been no violence I’ve ever seen, but lots of gross bodily fluids.”

Lindsey Aiken, 26, Malden

“Yes. I’ve been taking the T my whole life in to Boston.”

Indecent assault and battery suspect

Twenty-one faces top the MBTA Transit Police’s wanted list, with crimes ranging from credit card fraud to taking photos up women’s skirts. Transit authorities continually ask for the public’s help in identifying the suspects in an effort to clean up the crime that occurs on Boston’s public transportation systems. Photos captured using surveillance cameras move police one step closer to closing the case on numerous assault and battery incidents. Some of the open cases date back to the summer of 2010. METRO

Passenger spits in driver’s face The suspected spitter

MBTA Transit police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman who allegedly spit in a Dorchester bus driver’s face because she said he stopped the vehicle too quickly.

The woman, who was with two kids, walked to the front of the Route 28 bus in Dorchester and allegedly spat in a driver’s face and on his upper body before fleeing. The suspect is described

by transit authorities as a black female, between the ages of 30 and 40, wearing blue jean shorts, an orange and white outlined sleeveless shirt with black stripes and an orange halter strap. According to reports,

the woman was wearing orange high heels and carrying two small school bags with logos on them. Anyone with information should call the MBTA at 617-222-1212 or 617222-1050. STEVE ANNEAR

I believe what is happening to our economy right now is NOT a “normal” cycle of recession, but a radical change that could wipe out the Middle Class and leave us with a society of only rich and poor.

DO YOU WANT TO BE RICH OR POOR?

There are empty parking spots in commuter lots across Greater Boston, and the MBTA is lowering its parking rates to try to fill them. MBTA General Manager Richard Davey announced the launch of a pilot program this weekend to increase the occupancy of lots in Mattapan, Milton, Hyde Park and some South Shore communities by dropping monthly and daily parking payments. The initiative will take effect on July 1. Daily parking rates in 10 lots across the state will be

range from $4 to $4.50 while monthly rates are $70. Davey said the MBTA will monitor the program over the next few months to decide if the changes will be permanent, based on its success. Additionally, the MBTA is testing a “premium” parking program at the Braintree Station garage. Guaranteed parking spaces at the area close to the station entrance can be reserved by customers for a monthly fee of $200. STEVE ANNEAR

The Dimock Center offers a range of services unlike anywhere else. We continue to develop new programs that change and grow with our community. Dimock is also the largest provider of substance abuse and mental health treatment, including developmental disabilities, in Boston’s innercity. With integrated care, Dimock is able to provide a holistic approach and offer a continuum of services specifically tailored to men in recovery. In addition to inpatient detox services and medical monitoring, we also provide outpatient addiction and recovery services and mental health services, including outpatient psychiatric assessments, medication management and individual and group therapy. Our residential programs for men include: The John Flowers Recovery Home, providing substance abuse treatment and education for men 18 years and older, and Askia Academy at Dimock, a therapeutic community model that provides relapse prevention, confrontation management, peer evaluation, drug and alcohol education and individual counseling for men. Gregg McAuliffe serves as Assistant Program Manager at Dimock’s John Flowers Recovery Home and has been an employee for approximately seven years. He has personal ties to Dimock as his family members and friends have relied on Dimock’s Behavioral Health programs to get well. Gregg gushes that he loves the work that he does and adds “I know when I’m working with these men, that I really am making a difference in their lives.” If you were to ask Gregg how many of the men that enter our programs have had thorough physical, dental or eye exams, he would tell you the number is quite small. For this reason, Dimock offers a selection of diverse programs to help our patients and clients get on the path of wellness.

Our Health Services provide excellence in service to our residents, patients and clients who come to our campus for all of their physical and behavioral health-related needs. Dimock’s primary care providers focus on Men's health at every visit. In particular, screening for prostate cancer begins at age 40. Screenings can be done during the physical exam and by blood tests. We encourage our male patients to discuss their prostate health with their primary care physician. Together, patients and providers can determine the best way to screen for prostate cancer. In addition to routine health care, Dimock also offers Community Care (HIV) Services. These services include free rapid HIV testing, counseling and peer support which all remain confidential. The Dimock Head Start/Early Head Start and School Readiness programs are excited to announce that we will be partnering with a student from the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship to develop a program to increase male involvement in the lives of our children. We are now developing ideas for support groups that will take place from June of 2011 until May of 2012. These groups will help create an environment to guide men toward identifying their strengths, as well as deal with the obstacles they may encounter in their roles as positive male figures in the lives of our children. The program will also help raise the participants’ self-confidence through workshops and social events. The Dimock Center brings compassion and care to your neighborhood. We are committed to long term recovery and provide men with the support they need to live successful, independent lives. Our years of service have given us a unique understanding of the people we serve and we continue to provide integrated health and human services care to residents of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester and Mattapan.

The first photos of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in January were released yesterday on her Facebook page. The photos of the Arizona Democrat were taken by a professional photographer the day before her cranioplasty surgery in May. “Any photographer in the country would have loved the opportunity to take these pictures and I was delighted to be asked,” said photographer P.K. Weis of Southwestphotobank.com in a statement released with the photos. In the photos, a smiling Giffords is seen with very short hair, wearing glasses and a burgundy shirt with a colorful collar. The photos were taken May 17 at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, the day after the launch of the Endeavour shuttle mission commanded by Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly and the day before her surgery

Gabrielle’s mom, Gloria Giffords, attended the photo session.

‘Inspiring’ Weis has known Giffords for more than a decade. “It was very inspiring to see how much she had recovered in four and a half months. I was excited to see her and to see her smile. She was glad to see me, was in a good mood, smiling and laughing and seemed to enjoy the experience. I certainly did, too.”

Batali, on Paltrow: ‘She’s hard as a rock’ Like, every part of her.” Seems even Batali himself has perfected one of the recipes in Gwyneth’s new cookbook, “My Father’s Daughter.” “You know what I made that I’m really happy about? You take anchovies and put bread crumbs on them and bake them, with a little bit of squeezed tomato, and dry them, and then crumble them over pasta. It’s a new part of my summer repertoire,” he says.

Who could have a bigger appetite than Mario Batali? According to the legendary chef, it’s none other than his good friend, Gwyneth Paltrow. We chatted with Batali at the unveiling of his new Web series for Bing, “Decisions with Mario Batali,” which features short vignettes of Batali (directed by Fisher Stevens) offering his culinary words of wisdom, and asked the million-dollar question: Does Gwynnie really have as big of an appetite as she claims? “Bigger,” he told us. “She can eat more than a truck driver. She can eat more than me. Keep in mind she exercises two-and-a-half to three hours a day, like a lady of means might be able to, and she can eat because of that. Have you ever touched her? She’s hard as a rock.

Few big surprises at the Tony Awards Known host and safe humor ease transition for Tonys Christianity and homosexuality running themes ‘Book of Mormon’ racks up awards Last night, the 65th annual Tony Awards aired live on CBS. Despite concerns over a new venue, this year marked a successful transition from Radio City Music Hall, a 5,933-seater where the show’s been since 1997, to Beacon Theatre, a former movie theater with half the house capacity. Neil Patrick Harris hosted for the second time — kicking off with a traditionally tongue-incheek number about how, with Mormons and nuns and businessmen and superheroes, “Broadway’s not just for gays anymore.”

Winners Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play: John Benjamin Hickey, “Normal Heart” Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical: Nikki M. James, “Book of Mormon” Best Direction of a Play: Marianne Elliot and Tom Morris, “War Horse” SEE ALL THE WINNERS: WWW.METRO.US

At press time, American Theatre Wing award recipients for featured roles in a play were Ellen Barkin (presented by Alec Baldwin) and John Benjamin Hickey (presented by Viola Davis), both starring in “The Normal Heart.” Winning directors were Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker for musical “The Book of Mormon” as well as Marianne Elliot and Tom Morris for the play “War Horse.” The first half of the program showcased musical numbers from “How to Succeed in Business Without

Really Trying,” “Catch Me If You Can” and “Scottsboro Boys.” Other sequences included comedy from John Leguizamo (currently starring in “Ghetto Klown”) and six obligatory “Spider-Man” jokes in 30 seconds by Neil Patrick Harris. A showdown between NPH and former host Hugh Jackman and performances from “Sister Act,” “Anything Goes” and “The Book of Mormon,” up for a 14 Tonys, rounded out the show. T. MICHELLE MURPHY

Turning a chat into an

interview Play it cool and confident, and a chance run-in could turn into a job opportunity.

Sometimes you get lucky and find yourself talking to the right person How to take the conversation from small talk to job talk DREW HINSHAW letters@metro.us

T

he craftiest of jobseekers know how to flip small talk into a big opportunity. You’ve heard of these types: They bump into an industry bigwig at a wedding or in an elevator and by the time cake is served or the doors open — ding — they’ve scheduled a job interview. “It’s a skill that can be learned,” career coach Alex Freund says. “You have to develop something I call the ‘likeability factor.’ If you come off as flat, apathetic,

depressed, who wants to talk to you?” Play it cool, “Social Networking for Career Success” author Miriam Salpeter says. “You don’t want to corner the person or make them feel like you’re putting all your eggs in their basket,” she says. “It’s very stressful when someone feels like you’re relying on them.” Use these strategies next time you find yourself seated next to the executive between you and your dream job:

Expert tips

Use your network The person you’re talking to almost certainly isn’t hiring. But that person almost certainly knows somebody — who knows somebody — who is. “Say, ‘I don’t expect you to have an opening in this area, but perhaps you can share with me some thoughts about ways I can find out who’s hiring.’”

Start with small talk The right place to kick off some career-making chitchat is on common ground, Freund suggests. “You need to establish a rapport,” he says. “It can be talk about weather, human interests or commonalities like common friends. But soon after, get to the point.” Don’t feel like you need to put on a one-man play explaining how you wound up jobless, either. “Guilt pushes people in transition to talk about why they’re not working,” Fre-

und says. “Just say ‘I’m in transition.’” Make it a conversation If you’re looking to hear a quick and easy “no,” Salpeter warns, ask a stranger point-blank if he or she has a job. If you actually want a job, she adds, ask broad, generalized questions that flatter the person’s expertise. “You want to make it a conversation, a two-way street,” she says. “You can provide information as well as ask for it.”

The education of educators: When is the best time for teachers to earn master’s degrees? THINKSTOCK

Depending on your career path, a master’s degree could help you sooner rather than later.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 44 percent of veteran K12 teachers had a master’s degree as of 2008. Almost all of them earned the degree years after landing their first teaching job. But these days, 20 percent of first-time teachers have a master’s degree before stepping foot in a classroom. Increasingly, colleges are offering an accelerated, fiveyear bachelor’s/master’s degree program combo in order to adjust for this trend. Drexel University in

Master’s benefits An undergrad/grad hybrid degree program allows students to obtain multiple certifications; this is useful when applying for jobs. “[Students] can pursue a position in mathematics, but they might also have an endorsement in ESL. The more needs you can fill, the more desirable you are as a new hire,” says Sarah P. Ulrich, the education program director at Drexel.

Philadelphia is among the many schools experimenting with this hybrid degree. “Going straight through from bachelor’s to master’s has its advantages, and it’s becoming more popular,” says William Lynch, dean of the education school at Drexel. He estimates that about a third of his grad students came directly from undergrad. “It can definitely be a challenge once you’re teaching to pursue a master’s — splitting your focus on your job and education.” But a master’s program

forces students to choose an area of specialization. Should a teacher be a specialist before actually teaching a class? “If you’re already in a teacher-education program, my advice is to get your license to teach and to teach as soon as possible,” says Jane Bailey, dean of the education school at Post University. “You’re going to make a better decision about your specialty area after you’ve actually been in the job market.” BRUCE WALSH

Volunteering can often cost you cash — which might be a problem if you’re job-hunting. For less-expensive opportunities, stay close to home or choose a short international trip.

Add it to your CV Time spent laboring in an exotic locale can make your résumé leap from the stack, Cutchins says. The trick to leveraging a volunteer vacation into acceptable résumé material is to “just focus on the skills that you gained or honed,” he says. Then, when it comes time for the interview, remember to “talk about how those particular experiences are relative to the job.”

Working for free might not sound like much of a vacation. But you'd be surprised what it could do for your résumé — which is why career experts suggest spending some time volunteering abroad this summer before you apply for a new gig. A trip spent archiving artifacts or replanting rainforests can help both the unhappy and unemployed rediscover their calling, says sabbatical coach Clive Prout. “If you’re unhappy with your current career, then use a sabbatical as a way to get out of it,” he offers. “If you leave the country, you get a sense of the things we take for granted — particularly what we use as measures of success.” Doug Cutchins, author of “Volunteer Vacations,” says “voluntourism” can also be a way to test-drive a new vocation, like eco-management or development economics. But it doesn’t have to be just a break from your career, he adds — it can be a break for your career. “Volunteer vacations

The Weiner inside us all Anthony Weiner is simply the most recent in a long line of high-level people who have done what a very large amount of people do daily. Unfortunately, for him it will seriously hurt his private life and career. It may even become his primary legacy. One of the causes for this behavior is how we suppress natural sexual expression between people in our society. We deem it fully OK to show people killing each other on film and TV but do not allow showing an act of intimacy and love. We

will continue to see many more examples of Weinergate until someone dares to address real problems. STAN JACOBSON, VIA E-MAIL

Oh, so now the people matter? Some 56 percent of Weiner’s constituents do not want him to resign, which means if people are paid off they will accept any behavior. Others are not clouded by extortion. He wanted to end the controversy in its midst by saying he needs to do the “work of the people.” How come then he had so much time to Twitter? Did

the work of the people not matter then?

Couldn’t be simpler: Win tonight, or else GETTY IMAGES

B’s won’t have to look hard to find their sense of urgency tonight Garden crowd could key success For whatever reason, the Bruins left their emotion and energy back at home Friday night, and it cost them dearly in Game 5 at Vancouver. Tonight, the Bruins are back at the Garden for the final time this season, and there should be no shortage of urgency. For the first time this postseason, the Bruins face elimination in a non-Game 7 setting, and the stakes couldn’t be higher: They’re looking to even the Stanley Cup finals at three games apiece and force an epic Game 7 on Wednesday night back in Vancouver. “Our fans, they’ve been great all year and all playoffs, they’ve given us that extra jump and energy that we’ve needed,” center Patrice Bergeron said. “It’s up to us, and in front of our fans, to take all that energy and emotion that’s going to be in the building and carry that out on the ice.” Patrice Bergeron and the Bruins will look to feed off the crowd tonight.

The Bruins are 0-2 in Game 6s so far this postseason, but both times the situations was reversed, with the Bruins on the road and leading Montreal and Tampa Bay 3-2. This time, the Bruins will be at home, where they’ve won five straight and nine of their past 10 postseason games. And they take the ice tonight as the desperate team. That served them well in overcoming previous series deficits, including losing the first two games of the finals before outscoring the Canucks 12-1 in two games at the Garden last week. “I look at our resolve during the season and different times when we have had to come up large,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “Our guys have always responded well, and I have a lot of confidence in our team. The reason we’re here is because those guys have delivered, and I don’t expect that to change.” JEFF GOLDBERG sports@metro.us

4 The last time the Bruins faced playoff elimination was Game 7 against the Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals. Tim Thomas rose to that occasion, making 24 saves in a 1-0 shutout. Nathan Horton scored the game-winner in the third. The B’s had previously stared down playoff ouster in Game 7 of their first-round series against the Canadiens. It took overtime, but Nathan Horton’s OT goal gave Boston the 4-3 win. Unfortunately, Horton won’t be around to play the hero tonight. Boston didn’t fare so well in its lone elimination game during last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs. Simon Gagne’s third-period goal in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals capped the B’s historic collapse against the Flyers. The B’s made it through two elimination games against the Hurricanes in the 2009 Eastern Conference semifinals, but couldn’t win a third. They dropped Game 7 at the Garden 3-2 in overtime, when Scott Walker scored his first playoff goal in 25 career appearances. METRO

This guy is not your average shooting guard. The senior scorer out of Providence stands 6-foot-5 but plays much bigger than that, thanks to his massive 7-foot-1 wingspan. He can score in bunches, as shown by his singlegame and career Big East scoring records, and can also use his size on the glass. Let’s face it: Ray Allen isn’t getting any younger, and the C’s need to find a viable replacement for the future Hall of Famer. Brooks is third on the draft’s SG depth chart.

He sure seems like a great fit for the Celtics’ open court with Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green. Off the floor, Johnson leaves Purdue with a degree, and comes with a reputation as one of the most mature players in the draft.

Nobody thought VCU would make it to the Final Four, but they surprised everybody as the NCAA tournament’s true Cinderella team. Jamie Skeen, the Rams’ senior power forward, hopes to continue the dream year by getting drafted. At 6-foot-8 and 240

pounds, Skeen may lack the height to make it in the NBA, but he surely caught the eyes of the C’s in that NCAA run. He’d already worked out for them during the season. Second-rounders are usually a shot in the dark, but Skeen has proven he can play (15.7 points, 7.1 rebounds per game) and win on the big stage. That may be enough for the C’s to take a flier.
