Final arguments will be made to Bulger jury today Whitey trial. Closing arguments will take place today in the case against the alleged mob boss. After weeks of testimony, scores of witnesses and hundreds of evidence exhibits, the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger is coming to a close. Lawyers representing the mobster and the government will give their closing arguments to the jury today. Bulger on Friday opted not
to take the witness stand but spoke in court, calling the proceedings a “sham” and saying he was forced into silence by the judge’s ruling that prevented him from raising an immunity defense during the trial. Jurors today will first hear from Assistant U.S. Attorney Fred Wyshak, who said he plans to use nearly three hours to tell the jury why the weeks of testimony and evidence should lead them to find Bulger guilty of crimes including racketeering, extortion and 19 murders. Bulger’s lawyers J. W. Carney Jr. and Hank Brennan will

then split their three hours of closing arguments. The defense rested on Friday after calling multiple former FBI agents and even confessed killer and Winter Hill Gang member John Martorano. Carney questioned Martorano about how fellow
mobster Stephen Flemmi told Martorano that he killed Debra Davis. Her murder is one that Bulger is charged with committing. After the defense closing arguments, Wyshak will have a brief rebuttal argument before the end of the day. On Tuesday, Judge Denise Casper will then give the 18 jurors their instructions, which she said should take about 90 minutes, before allowing them to begin their deliberations. While the trial days have mostly lasted until 1 p.m., the jury will deliberate for full days
until they return a verdict. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Carney said he and Brennan would be working throughout the weekend to prepare for today. “Attorney Brennan and I are likely to spend virtually all our waking moments from now until Monday morning at 9 o’clock focusing on our closing argument trying to marshall the evidence to show the jury as best we can what our view of the case is,” Carney said.

Principal Red Sox owner John Henry scooped up the Boston Globe from the New York Times for $70 million, the newspaper announced Saturday. The sale represents a staggering drop in price.

Responding to concerns that the Sox owner might bias coverage of the beloved Boston team, Henry told the Boston Herald doing so would diminish the value of both institutions. METRO

US lawmaker says the al Qaeda threat at its most serious in years
Do you have any of these symptoms?
www.USAVeinClinics.com 1208B VFW Parkway, Suite 300 West Roxbury, MA 02132
The al Qaeda threat that closed U.S. embassies in the Middle East yesterday is the most serious in years and the â€œchatterâ€? among suspected terrorists is reminiscent of what preceded the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, a lawmaker who is briefed on intelligence said. The State Department closed 21 embassies and consulates and issued a worldwide travel alert warning Americans that al Qaeda may be planning attacks in August, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. Some embassies and consulates in the Middle East will be closed through Aug. 10 due to caution. â€œThere is an awful lot of chatter out there,â€? Senator Saxby Chambliss, a top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on NBCâ€™s â€œMeet the Press.â€? He said the â€œchatterâ€? â€” communications among terrorism suspects about the planning of a possible attack

â€œAl Qaeda is in many ways stronger than it was before 9/11, because itâ€™s mutated and it spread and it can come at us from diďŹ€erent directions. ... And al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is probably the most deadly of all the al Qaeda aďŹƒliates.â€? U.S. Rep. Peter King
â€” was â€œvery reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.â€? A National Security Agency surveillance program that electronically collects communications on cell phones and emails â€” known as intercepts â€” had helped gather intelligence about this threat, Chambliss said. It was one of the NSA surveillance programs revealed by former spy agency contractor Edward Snowden to media outlets. â€œIf we did not have these programs, then we simply wouldnâ€™t be able to listen in on the bad guys,â€? Chambliss said. REUTERS

John Davidson is 71 years old, but that doesn’t stop him from performing eight shows a week with the “Wicked” cast. “Bottom line, at my age, I feel lucky to have a job,” laughs Davidson, who plays the Wizard in the 10th anniversary of the very popular musical. Unlike most of the characters in the show, audience members probably know that the Wizard isn’t as “great and powerful” as he proclaims. “People come to the show with some baggage,” says Davidson. But he thinks that their preconceptions are a good thing. “People know the story, but there’s freedom when playing this role. I don’t have to be like the guy in the movie.” Davidson grew up outside of Boston in West Bridgewater and first appeared on Broadway in 1964. He went on to host a string of TV shows, in-

While performing in Boston, he’ll be staked out on a campground outside the city with his wife and cat.

Camel Begin by kneeling with your knees and feet hip-width apart and the tops of your feet ﬂat on the ﬂoor. Keep your pelvis over your knees, your tailbone down and your lower belly lifted. Bring your hands to your heart in the prayer position, roll your shoulders back and hug your elbows in. Curl your chest open by kneeling back, but keep your hips over your knees. When you can’t curl your chest back any farther, release your arms and grab your heels. You can also touch them with your ﬁngertips. Hold for up to 30 seconds. Sanﬁlippo: “You’re working against gravity, opening up your shoulders and the upper part of the spine. Your chest is lifted, which feels very expansive in the lungs.”

Begin seated, perpendicular to a wall. Bend your knees and lie back on the ﬂoor. Pivot your torso and extend your legs up the wall so your hips and the entire length of the back of your legs rest against the wall. You can use a strap to tie your feet together so your legs can relax even further. Let your arms rest next to you, palms up, or bend your elbows at right angles. You can stay in this pose anywhere from ﬁve to 15 minutes. Sanﬁlippo: “This is suitable for all levels. Just getting your legs up the wall brings good oxygen ﬂow into the lungs, into the throat, where the thyroid and the parathyroid are — both instrumental in the hormonal regulation of sleep.”

Extend it behind your head, with its inner side turning toward the ﬂoor. Lift your hips and let your head hang. Hold for up to 30 seconds. Return to downwardfacing dog and repeat on the opposite side.

LETTERS AND GAMES
Leo | July 23-Aug. 22. A disagreement with either a family member or a good friend needs to be settled as speedily as possible. If fences aren’t mended quickly, a small rift could get much worse. Virgo | Aug. 23-Sept. 22. If someone recently did something that you resent and you’re still holding a grudge, you need to get over it. You need to let bygones be bygones and move on. Libra | Sept. 23-Oct. 22. This is an good day to review how much time and money you’ve been spending on inessential items and activities. Once you identify the waste, you’ll find ways to weed it out.
Aquarius | Jan. 21-Feb 18. If at all possible, avoid friends who tend to be pessimistic. They will have a negative effect on your outlook and end up putting a damper on your day. Pisces | Feb. 19-March 20. Your way of doing things is likely to turn insignificant tasks into major undertakings. Do your best to plan your moves in advance. Aries | March 21-April 20. Don’t waste time worrying about things that have little chance of happening. If you want to succeed, concentrate on your goals and not on nonexistent problems.
Scorpio | Oct. 23-Nov. 21. Objectives you set for yourself might not be easy to reach. If you’re aware of this fact, you won’t be inclined to quit.
Taurus | April 21-May 21. If things go wrong in your household today, don’t try to pin the blame on any one person; view the entire picture. It usually takes more than one cause to make things go askew.
Sagittarius | Nov. 22-Dec. 21. You might have too many doubts for your own good. Being cautious is one thing, but just being negative is detrimental and prohibits progress.
Gemini | May 22-June 20. Stick to the facts if you’re trying to promote something special. The worst thing you could do would be to embellish your wares. Your deception will quickly be discovered.
Capricorn | Dec. 22-Jan 20. Don’t overlook or ignore an old financial obligation to a friend just because he or she is a pal. The quickest way to end the relationship is to fail to do what you promised.
Cancer | June 21-July 22. If you need to make a purchase of financial consequence today, be certain that you’re getting what you want. Don’t let yourself be saddled with something that’s not perfect. BERNICE BEDE OSOL

SPORTS â€˜Dâ€™-Back to normal
Red Sox hold on to first place with win over Arizona After suffering a loss in each of his last two outings, Felix Doubront got back on the winning track as the lefthander fired seven shutout innings in a 4-0 Red Sox win over the Diamondbacks yesterday at Fenway Park. The Sox took two-of-three from the Diamondbacks over the weekend and remain a game ahead of Tampa Bay in the AL East. Doubront allowed five hits, while striking out five to pick up his eighth win of the year. Despite not recording a hit until there were two outs in the fourth inning, the Sox were able to get to Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy. Two straight singles from Stephen Drew and Brock Holt followed by a sacrifice fly from Jacoby Ellsbury scored the first run. Two batters later Dustin Pedroia doubled to left, scoring Holt and ending the day for McCarthy. The Red Sox are in Houston for three games starting tonight. John Lackey gets the nod in the opener with knuckleballer Steven Wright earning his first major-league start tomorrow. Wright is 2-0 with a 3.65 ERA in three appearances this season. METRO
Judgment day for A-Rod finally here MLB. The league is supposed to hand down a suspension through the 2014 season for the Yanksâ€™ third baseman. Alex Rodriguez is rushing back to the field today, but it might be his last time playing in the majors for a while. Multiple media reports indicate Rodriguez will be suspended through the end of the 2014 season. Announcements of his suspension, as well as suspensions of a handful of other players connected to the Biogenesis scandal, will reportedly be announced today. Rodriguez spent the weekend rehabbing in Double-A and is expected to arrive in Chicago today to join the Yankees as they begin a series with the White Sox. He seemed nonplussed by suspension talk following his final rehab game Saturday, in which he walked in all four plate appearances. â€œI feel great. It was great
