The state’s gaming commission on Thursday formally approved of a waiver that allows for a second citywide vote in Revere on a revised casino plan at Suffolk Downs. Members of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted unanimously to waive the requirement during a meeting Thursday morning, according to the commission. The vote waives the requirement that applicants for one of the state’s three resort casino licenses must submit a certified vote on a Host Community Agreement by the end of this month. Suffolk Downs and its new partner, Mohegan Sun, must still submit plans by the end of the year.

The issue of a second vote arose after East Boston voters rejected a pact on a casino and voters in Revere approved of it during a November vote. Suffolk Downs stretches into both East Boston and Revere. In a letter to the commission, a lawyer from Boston’s law department expressed the city’s opposition to the waiver. “The integrity of the East Boston vote must be respected and maintained,” it stated. After the November vote, Suffolk Downs and Mohegan Sun announced a revised plan that would locate the entire casino on 42 acres of the Revere portion of the racetrack. At issue was whether Revere’s approval in November of an initial agreement would be sufficient. Commissioners instead voted to give the gaming companies the option of seeking a new vote, which required a waiver.

Ballot redux

Vote date TBD When voters in Revere will head back to the polls to approve or reject a casino plan has yet to be decided. A spokesman for Revere Mayor Dan Rizzo said on Thursday that no date has been set because officials from the city and Mohegan Sun are still working out the details of an amended or updated Host Community Agreement. Once that is finalized, a date for the vote will be set. The agreement will bring in tens of millions of dollars for Revere. Revere voters approved of an initial agreement in November by a vote of 6,566 for and 4,232 against.

Dozens of pro-casino residents of Revere gathered outside Suffolks Downs earlier this month to show support for building a casino there. / NICOLAUS CZARNECKI, METRO

Stifling sniffles. Boston seems to be faring well early on in this flu season For many, the holidays are the happiest time of year, despite frigid temperatures, slick roads and endless shoveling. However, there is one downside to the season that can put a damper on anyone’s winter wonderland — the dreaded influenza. But according to the Boston Public Health Commission, the city has fared well since the flu season began on Oct. 1. “It’s very low. Often we will see an initial uptick in children coming down with the flu, but we haven’t seen that yet,” said Dr. Anita Barry, director of the BPHC’s Infectious Disease Bureau. Those opting to get vaccinated this year – which officials at the BPHC recommend – can expect two new changes to this year’s flu shots.

Miley Cyrus fans are demanding a refund after a snow storm kept the twerking pop princess from performing at Kiss 108’s Jingle Ball Boston concert on Dec. 14. Rich Nowak, who says he paid $200 to see Cyrus headline Jingle Ball, started a petition on Change.org asking to be reimbursed. “Like I said, I’m not sure who is to blame but it sure isn’t the attendees who paid good money to see Miley, the headlining act,” Nowak says on the petition. More than 170 people have hopped on board, with many weighing in on the collective disappointment.

Wet ride. Storrow Drive closes due to flooding, causes traffic nightmare Massachusetts State Police were forced to shut down the inbound lanes of the Storrow Drive tunnel on Thursday morning due to flooding after two catch basins became clogged with debris and overflowed. The inbound lanes of the Storrow Drive tunnel were closed so crews could fix the problem and get the roadway reopened. State Police announced that significant delays were expected for drivers. All cars were rerouted to Clarendon Street and Berkeley Street in Back Bay. It was unclear how much water had accumulated, but Department of Conservation and Recreation Spokesman William Hickey told the Boston Globe, “It was certainly enough to cause a public safety concern.” The DCR previously announced that on Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., roadway repairs would

be underway along eastbound Storrow Drive, at the entrance to the tunnel. Officials said the repairs would require a single lane closure of the high-speed lane on Thursday, and the low-speed lane on Friday. The tunnel was opened around 2:30 p.m., just in time for the evening commute. The temporary shutdown caused a headache for motorists; an estimated 110,000 cars use Storrow Drive daily. METRO

Target cyber breach hits 40 million cards

Target warned customers in an alert on its website that the criminals had stolen names, payment card numbers, expiration dates and security codes. / GETTY IMAGES

Theft. The company identified the breach on Sunday and had begun responding to it the same day. Target Corp. said hackers might have stolen data from some 40 million credit and debit cards of shoppers who visited its stores during the first three weeks of the holiday season in the second-largest such breach reported by a U.S. retailer. In terms of the speed at which the hackers were able to access large numbers of credit cards, the data theft was unprecedented. It took place in the 19 days from the day before Thanksgiving to Sunday, in the heart of the crucial Christmas holiday sales season. Target said on Thursday that it was working with federal law enforcement and outside experts to prevent similar attacks Nevada hospital

Complaints from customers began to surface on social media as they learned of it early Thursday morning. “Most of these attacks are

just a cost of doing business,” said Mark Rasch, a former U.S. cyber crimes prosecutor. “But an attack that’s targeted against a major retailer during the peak of the Christmas season is much more than that, because it undermines confidence.” The largest breach against a retailer, uncovered in 2007 at TJX Cos Inc., led to the theft of data from more than 90 million credit cards over about 18 months.

Congress warned of debt ceiling limit Running low. The U.S. is fast using up its borrowing power, the treasury secretary warns. The Obama administration warned Congress on Thursday that the government could run out of borrowing authority needed to help pay its bills as soon as February if lawmakers do not swiftly raise the federal debt ceiling. “I respectfully urge Congress to take action to raise the debt limit at the earliest possible moment,” Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said to Congress. Congress passed a two-year budget deal on Wednesday to trim some spending cuts planned for next year, and the pact reduces the risk of a government shutdown. But the legislation does nothing to avoid a potential unprecedented U.S. debt default that could occur if Washington does not raise the borrowing cap. In October, Congress and the administration suspended a $16.7 trillion cap on borrowing until Feb. 7. If the debt ceiling isn’t raised by then, Treasury will be able to juggle money between government accounts for a few weeks to keep just under the new limit. REUTERS

VIDEO GAMES

We played the PS4

This holiday season boasts many new games for a new system. Here’s a ranked list of what you need to get. METRO WORLD NEWS

‘Killzone: Shadowfall’

CULTURE Consider this

Xbox One: No. 1? When the zombies attack and you need backup, would you rather press a button and wait or bark orders to activate your team? The new Kinect, which reads your movements and understands voice commands, is built into the Xbox One. It’s more responsive and makes games like “Dead Rising 3” feel more immersive.

“Wow, a new Killzone!” people nowhere are saying. The first-person shoot-’emup series has always been just generic enough to get by without becoming a phenomenon. But this version offers some surprises that really show off the PS4’s graphics.

1 3 5

‘FIFA 14’

The soccer classic is back, and it looks just like a game on TV — except you can play it! Nerds will tell you there’s a new engine behind the visuals. But what’s important is the photo-realism translates to the play: Limbs look like moving limbs, allowing for the illusion of complete control.

Negatives: It still pales in comparison to most others in the genre.

Negatives: As in other editions, there’s no tournament mode.

Dive into the action with the new PS4 show-off game, “Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag.” / PROVIDED

‘NBA 2K14’

Like “FIFA,” this is another EA Sports game, which means it’s got the same photorealism — right down to LeBron James’ frowny eyebrows. The gameplay is as fluid as ever. The leading b-ball franchise out there, “2K14” ensures you’ll never set foot on an actual court. Negatives: There’s a manager mode, in which you sit at a desk.

‘Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag’

Like the other games here, save “Killzone,” “Creed” is available on other platforms, so don’t buy a PS4 just for this. But the historical adventure, set among pirates in the Caribbean, looks stunning, with water you could dive in. And it really shows off the system’s “remote play” feature, which requires the PlayStation Vita. You can start a game on the console and pick it up again on a mobile device.

4

Negatives: If you already own this, don’t buy it again.

‘Lego Marvel Superheroes’

Some people play with Legos to build things. Most people play to build things and then smash them. They’ll love this new entry, in which Iron Man and friends just destroy stuff. Negatives: The game is already available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, where it’s basically the same.

A ‘Nutcracker’ with real soul Review. “Urban Nutcracker” is a diverse, delightful take on the classic holiday ballet. Now in its 13th season, Anthony Williams’ “Urban Nutcracker” returns to the John Hancock Hall stage bursting with excitement and Bostoncentric detail. This “Nutcracker” is more than an adaptation of the classic holiday fairy tale. It does riff on Tchaikovsky’s score, but theirs is a smooth, swanky jazz If you go

interpretation by Duke Ellington. The urbanized “Hubcracker” version reflects Boston’s multicultural vibe, embracing diverse forms of dance like tap, hip-hop, swing, flamenco, step and jazz. The show also features 75 local children. The prologue is always entertaining, and this year’s street battle is no exception. It’s tap versus hip-hop krump and it is fantastic. Urban tapper Khalid Hill battles local krumper Russell Ferguson (a winner of “So You Think You Can Dance”). Whether it’s freestyled or completely choreographed, you could watch these two — true masters of their crafts — go at it all night. Ferguson also shines as Soldier Doll and Russian Caviar Caper. Young dancer Alexa Wang (Clarice) is a joy to behold. She beams throughout her entire performance, so clearly enjoying her moment onstage. Other winning performers include the return of Tony Award-winner Yo-el Cassell as the quirky Minimeyer, a group of bop-

New to the annual show is a scene in Boston’s Public Garden in which Clarice and the Nutcracker Prince are led through the snow by a sleigh pulled by ducklings, inspired by Robert McCloskey’s “Make Way for Ducklings.” In a thrilling grand pas de quatre, the Sugar Plum Fairy is accompanied by

Dance

A traditional ‘Nutcracker’ shines a bit less brightly Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre returns this holiday season with its three-city tour of “The Nutcracker.” On the company’s intimate home stage at the Sanctuary Theatre, Mateo’s dancers are led by Drosselmeyer (executive director Peter DiMuro) in Act I’s party scene. DiMuro brings energy and direction to the ballet, showcasing his gifts and admiration for a young Clara (Leila Dixon). There are more than 200 local children in this year’s production, and the role of Clara is every little dancer’s dream. Fourteen-year-old Dixon has mastered the art of performance art in a small venue. She remains engaged with her fellow dancers and the audience. However, she is disappointingly absent in much of the second half, leaving the two acts feeling disconnected.

With a minimalist set, Mateo’s “Nutcracker” focuses on choreography. Unfortunately, in Act II, they miss the mark. The choreography is there, but the execution is not. For a mid-run performance, there were a fair amount of mistakes. Hopefully, they’ll work out those kinks in this weekend’s closing run. KATRINA T. LALLIER

Cascading beauty.

Hard times for film in 2013 Movies. The year’s cinema offerings were not happy, but that’s not a bad thing.

At the movies, everything is bleak. This year, we learned that love is hard (“Before Midnight,” “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” “To the Wonder,” “Her”), aging is hard (“The World’s End”) and we’re all going to die, possibly horrifically (“The Counselor”). Between birth and death, you fight to survive, fending off failure (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), disease (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and inhumane institutions (“12 Years a Slave”). You may struggle alone, in space (“Gravity”), at sea (“All Is Lost”) or at an abandoned hospital besieged by Katrina (“Hours,” with a rather good Paul Walker). If you partied (as in “Spring Breakers,” “The Bling Ring” and “The Wolf of Wall Street”), you did it hard and at the expense of others. There was happiness too

Having tackled life, the universe and everything with “The Tree of Life,” director Terrence Malick settled for a simple — but still heavy — love story.

‘The World’s End’

One of the year’s funniest films is also one of the saddest, arguing that not only can’t you recreate the glories of your youth, but maturity isn’t much better.

— or at least pretty pictures. There was the usual rash of interchangeable comic book and YA movies, made to be hoovered up by everyone at once then quickly forgotten. (Quick: Who were the baddies of “Thor: The Dark World”?) But it was heartening to see the masses flock to “Gravity,” which offered a legitimately new way of looking at movies, albeit one borrowed in part from the avant-garde. Thanks to technology, the “camera”

was freed, and thus created in the viewer the loss of control felt by its sparse, flailing cast. The films of 2013 were real downers but also excellent cinema. This was a year where there were at least 30 better titles than a keyed-up Martin Scorsese picture in “Goodfellas” mode. If 2014 is happier, that may be a bad thing.

Countdown. Metro staffers weigh in on seeing (and not seeing) the year’s films “I very much enjoyed ‘The Spectacular Now’ and am looking forward to Shailene Woodley’s Hollywood takeover in 2014.” EMILY LAURENCE

“I might have teared up a little watching ‘Lee Daniels’ The Butler’ with my dad. Really moving parent-child stuff happening there, although I don’t care about Oprah (there, I said it). I’m pretty sure that’s the only movie I paid to see in a theater this year. I feel like it’s a case of everyone forgetting that movie by the end of the year because of its early release date.”

“I don’t think it’s the two hours, I think it’s the $30. I think that’s why people will go see ‘Gravity’ on the big screen, or something

“There weren’t many movies out this year that really interested

that would be compromised to watch on an iPad — or if it’s something timely/topical they don’t want to be left out of (‘Hunger Games,’ superheroes, hobbits).” TMM “Now that I’m a parent, I see that the act of going to a movie theater is a big luxury. If you have kids, seeing a movie means getting a babysitter (if you are a decent and kind moviegoer, which I know many aren’t). At $15 an hour for the sitter coupled with two tickets, that is well over $100 to see ‘R.I.P.D.’ — sometimes in a theater WHERE SOMEONE BROUGHT THEIR CRYING BABY. The entire experience doesn’t justify the cost.” DOROTHY ROBINSON

“I love rowdy theaters — it’s part of the experience. But I’m wholly alone in that and no one in my life will come with me to any of the noisy theaters I like. And I usually need someone there to explain to me what’s going on onscreen.” RACHEL VIGODA

A folk implosion Oscar Isaac (with tabby cat) plays a struggling, penniless folk musician in ’60s Greenwich Village in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” / ALISON ROSA

The Coen brothers are never entirely upbeat, and they’ve certainly been gloomier than with “Inside Llewyn Davis.” But it’s pretty bleak. The film’s titular hero (Oscar Isaac) is a folk singer in the ’60s Greenwich Village scene. He’s as uncompromising as he is un-

pleasant, which explains why he doesn’t have a home. Penniless, he couch-surfs night to night, eternally exploiting the goodwill of an ever-dwindling circle of colleagues, confidants and benefactors. Hope is dangled cruelly in front of him: The folk scene

is taking off. But the masses like upbeat or pretty music, neither of which describes his miserablist dirges. There’s no green pasture for him, and no real plot — just a vicious circle of backslides and humiliations. Llewyn floats through his life like a sleepy-eyed ghost, dealing with angry exes (including Carey Mulligan, who speaks to him exclusively in insults) and the various tabby cats put accidentally under his care. The Coens have been accused of hating their characters. The charge isn’t unearned. They take clear enjoyment in punishing Llewyn. Whatever doesn’t kill him only keeps him alive just enough to be tortured. As in the Coens’ most recent work, the only gods are the filmmakers. And they’re in a sadistic mood. But as with their other films, their perspective is more complex than that. Llewyn is often unlikable, but he’s impossible to hate. There’s an admiration for Llewyn’s devotion to principles. If the Coens really hated him, they’d make him talentless. Llewyn is not talentless. He’s quite good. He’s just not remotely commercial.

Black comedy. The Coen brothers torture a penniless musician in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Review ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen Stars: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan Rating: R

••••• It’s actually funny when Llewyn sits in as a session man on a poppy number that includes Adam Driver (“Girls”) whooping ridiculous backing vocals. And Llewyn’s stomped dreams become increasingly amusing, especially a drawnout hail mary in the second act that builds to a killer punch line. But his failures are also crushing. The movie captures the frustration of trying to make it in an impossible business. One can watch “Inside Llewyn Davis” as a sad (albeit often funny) drama or a hilarious (albeit often sad) pitch black comedy.

Biopic. Disney invents lies about the making of ‘Mary Poppins’ “Saving Mr. Banks” is an awful film, perhaps an evil one. In it, Disney uses its considerable power to rewrite history, hoping attractive fiction will replace the nasty (albeit much more fun) truth. The subject is the making of “Mary Poppins,” the behemoth’s delightful desecration of P.L. Travers’ novels. Travers hated the movie with the fire of 10 million volcanoes. But that’s not a very nice story. And so “Saving Mr. Banks” invents a new one. Here, Travers (Emma Thompson) is an acid-tongued, eternally strident spinster. Flown in from England to belatedly sign off on the project, she complains about the script, the sets, the clothes and, most of all, the half-animated segment Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) secretly has planned. But don’t worry: She’ll

come around, at least in the land of make-believe. This is the story of a frozen heart melting, with Travers as a Grinch who’s a nuisance in public but secretly bear-hugs the massive Mickey Mouse plush doll that was sadistically placed in her hotel room. “Saving Mr. Banks” wants to have it both ways, critiquing Disney while embodying its ills. MATT PRIGGE Review ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ Director: John Lee Hancock Stars: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks Rating: PG-13

All about Miley Cyrus’ tongue The truth behind Miley Cyrus’ penchant for sticking out her tongue in photos is that she’s actually just really nervous, she insisted in a recent interview with Barbara Walters. “I get embarrassed to take pictures. That’s actually the truth,” she says. “I’m so embarrassed, because people are taking pictures of me, and I just don’t know how to — I don’t know how to smile, and just be awkward, so I stick my tongue out, because I don’t know what else to do.” Well, maybe if she would put on some pants, she wouldn’t feel so self-conscious?

Lovato is leaving ‘The X Factor’ It was announced Wednesday night that Demi Lovato would not be returning as a judge in season four of “The X Factor.” Backstage, Lovato confirmed to E! News that she is indeed exiting the series. “It’s been an awesome experience, but I’m itching to go back to music,” she said.

Boitano is gay 1988 Olympic figure skating gold medalist Brian Boitano announced on Thursday that he is gay. Boitano was recently named to the official U.S. delegation to the 2014 Sochi Olympics. “I am many things: a son, a brother, and uncle, a friend, an athlete, a cook, an author, and being gay is just one part of who I am,” Boitano said.

The ‘Duck Dynasty’ controversy continues (now with Sarah Palin!) Did you know Sarah Palin is a huge free speech advocate? It’s true. Move over, ACLU: If you’re a reality star who likes to tell gay people that they’re going to hell, the former governor of Alaska has got your back. The reality star in question is “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson, who recently made a whole host of comments about homosexuality to GQ, including comparing it to bestiality. “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he said. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.” A&E, believe it or not, is not pleased with one of its stars unfavorably comparing a man’s anus to a vagina (you need to read the dude’s full quote, because he did say that), and

the network has relieved him of his reality show duties. Sarah Palin won’t stand for that kind of great injustice. “Free speech is an endangered species. Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us,” she said on her Facebook page. She’s droppin’ her “g’s”! She means

business! Kind of lost in all this is that Robertson isn’t just homophobic; he’s also maybe racist. The 67-year-old said, “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field. ... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’ — not a word! ... Preentitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.” Uh ... singing, happy black farmhands who knew their place? Hey, A&E, could you please reinstate this guy just so you can PALIN suspend him again? MELINDA TAUB

Sun., Dec. 22 Service 10:30 am Children’s Pageant with Holy Eucharist

Our reporter hopped the Red Line to Davis Square to talk tinsel and nipple tassels. Around this time of year, the little ones wonder if Santa Claus is real. For those of us unfortunate enough to achieve intellectual maturity, the yuletide question changes into, “Is the ‘war on Christmas’ real, or did Dick Cheney invent it in 1994 in order to frighten old people?” We sought the truth from Vanessa White (aka Sugar Dish), creator of “The Slutcracker” burlesque extravaganza, now at the Somerville Theatre for its sixth year. White says the ‘war on Christmas’ is not an actual thing. However, “The Slutcracker” is enough of an actual thing to garner national press and, for some, become about as famous as the Tchaikovsky pageant it echos. What does it mean when the satire starts to become as well known as the original? I don’t take a poll or anything, but it definitely seems like most people

Megyn Kelly recently insisted that Santa Claus is white. Do you think she was right? My personal opinion is that Santa Claus is not a real person, so why are we even talking about this?

Some dudes in NYC are doing a musical about Jesus’s crucifixion using only Britney Spears songs. What if you had to pick a pop star and a Bible story to combine? Beyonce’s album just dropped, and it’s amazing. She speaks a lot about her personal experiences of coming into fame and celebrity. I could lend her voice to the Book of Job, because it’s all about how, in order to earn love and success and whatever, you have to go through sacrifice and struggle. BARRY THOMPSON

If only the government would tell us how to eat Who of your readers could use another $12,000? This Affordable Health Care Act called Obamacare should have/could have included an educational program on eating well. It’s a well-established conclusion that the knowledge and application of selecting, preparing and eating primarily a plantbased diet dramatically re-

duces the risk of ALL diseases including cancers, heart diseases, diabetes and obesity. If the government truly wanted to keep its citizens healthy, a small adjustment in their eating habits could reduce health care costs and thereby reduce health care premiums by at least $1,000 per month.

Pats can ill afford loss in Baltimore

NFL. The Patriots still aren’t a lock for the postseason and they face their kryptonite this Sunday.

The Patriots head into Baltimore this Sunday (4:25 p.m., CBS) with a lot more on the line than was originally expected two or three weeks ago. In short, it’s not an ideal situation. Are the Ravens playing like Super Bowl champions? Well, that depends on which games you’ve watched. They’ve looked every bit the part over the last four games, in which they’ve gone 4-0 and have catapulted back into the playoff picture after some had left them for dead. The Patriots, on the other hand, look more like the walking dead as of late, or at least the walking injured. Going into Week 15, the Pats still don’t have the AFC East wrapped up. In fact, in a crazy-but-not-thatcrazy scenario, they could find themselves out of the playoffs altogether if they don’t take care of business against the Ravens this week or the Bills in Week 17. “We need it,” Tom Brady said of Sunday’s game. “There’s no bigger game than this one for us. We have to put everything we can into it.” With that, we focus on three things going into Sunday:

Ravenous for a win Tom Brady has typically had a rough time against Baltimore: •

Brady had a 62.3 QB rating, threw a touchdown and threw two picks in the 2012 AFC Championship game.

No. 12 was sharp in Week 3 of last season, posting a 101.2 QB rating, but the Pats lost, 31-30, at Baltimore.

In the 2011 AFC title game Brady struggled, posting a 57.5 QB rating while throwing a pair of interceptions. The Pats won, however, 23-20, in Foxboro.

In October 2010, Brady also threw two interceptions and had a 69.5 QB rating but the Patriots still won, 23-20, at home.

Banged-up Flacco Joe Flacco avoided a serious knee injury in Monday night’s 18-16 win over the Lions, but the Ravens QB was diagnosed with a mild MCL sprain. He will definitely play Sunday against the Patriots, but how that injury limits him physically and mentally will be something to watch. Flacco can get happy feet in the pocket if it closes in around him. The Patriots absolutely

In the red The Ravens have given up touchdowns to opponents in the red zone in six straight attempts, spanning the last three games. Even so, they rank fourth in the NFL in opponent red-zone scoring percentage (42.86 percent) this season. Production in the red zone is huge for the Patriots this week, especially after the struggles we saw in Miami.
