New laws have forced Bay State smokers outside to take their puffs in recent years. Now, one lawmaker wants to redefine just where they can stand. A bill before the Committee on Public Health today would force smokers to stand 25 feet away from an entrance or open win-

dow to a building that already bans smoking. It could potentially include bar patrons who step out for a quick smoke or workers lighting up on their breaks. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Ted Speliotis, D-Danvers, admitted “it would make it difficult in the city of Boston, without a doubt,” but he said it’s a public health issue many of his constituents have been calling for. “This is a natural progression of where we’re heading as a soci-

Chantal Williams boarded a Route 66 bus at Dudley station at 11:30 p.m. and allegedly told the driver, “I only have this change and you’re gonna let me ride this bus.” When the driver called his dispatch to have her removed, she became “irate,” hurled the coins at the driver and left the bus, according to a transit police report.

Firms tweet their message PR execs find Internet is a treasure trove to get their clients out to the public During a time when traditional media is struggling to stay relevant due to dwindling readership, public relations executives are tapping into Twitter to get the word out about their clients. So far, it’s working, according to some of the top local industry executives. Twitter is now becoming one of the “go-to” tools at Boston-based Regan Communications Group, which boasts clients such as the

Boston Celtics, Mohegan Sun and Legal Sea Foods. “We’ve been aggressively using Twitter for several months, and we found pretty quickly it is a very powerful vehicle for the right kinds of messages,” said Christian Megliola, who heads new media at Regan. Earlier this year, executives set up a Twitter account for their client — the Boston Wine Expo — in order to publicize the upcoming event, attract wine enthusiasts locally and nationally and highlight some of the special guests. Within a month, more than 800 people were “following” the

Twitter account and the Boston Wine Expo Web site had huge Web traffic coming from Twitter. This year’s wine expo had 200 more attendees than last year, which Regan executive Dominic Amenta believes was in part because of Twitter. Marlo Fogelman, president and founder of marlo marketing/communications in Boston, tweets daily. “A couple of weeks back a writer at Marie Claire tweeted about needs she had for a story. My colleague who followed her saw the tweet, tweeted back and secured a placement for our client,” Fogelman said.

Island, Connecticut and New York, states also known for having strong gun laws. Predictably, states with weaker gun laws and higher rates of gun ownership – many in the South – led the way in gun deaths. Essentially, there was little surprise. “More guns means more gun death and injury. Fewer guns means less gun death and injury,” VPC Legislative Director Kristen Rand said. “It’s a simple equation.”

President Barack Obama yesterday warned doctors the U.S. health care system was a ticking time bomb and urged them to support his overhaul plan, which includes a public insurance program that many of them view with skepticism. Obama took his health care campaign to the annual meeting of the influential American Medical As-

sociation in Chicago, where he likened the U.S. health care system to struggling General Motors, which has filed for bankruptcy protection. “If we do not fix our health care system, America may go the way of GM; paying more, getting less, and going broke,” he said. “Make no mistake: The cost of our health care is a threat to our economy,”

“Make no mistake: The cost of our health care is a threat to our economy. It is a ticking time bomb.” President Obama said Obama, who wants a health care reform bill on his desk by October. “It is a ticking time bomb for the federal budget. And it is unsustainable for the United States of America.” The president’s speech

comes as debate sharpens over elements of the health care overhaul being drafted by Congress, including how to pay for the plan and whether it should include a public insurance program to compete with

They argue it would ultimately drive private insurers out of business.

The world at his fingertips Hitchhiker explores world on $7 a day GABRIELA GUTIERREZ Metro World News

Take a good look at your thumb. What do you see? Jeremy Marie found his answer in the Egyptian pyramids, Sudan’s deserts, Ukrainian mountains and exuberant spring in Nicaragua. With a $7 daily budget, Marie has crossed 51,550 kilometers just by hitchhiking, a distance that is greater than Earth’s circumference. Marie started his journey in his native Caen, France, in October 2007. The original planned length of the trip was two years, but luck has been Marie’s friend and now his return is scheduled for 2012. It’s been a year since Marie’s seen his parents, twin sister and friends, but

“In Europe, it’s easier to feel alone ... nobody really sees you.” Jeremy Marie he says he doesn’t feel lonely. “In Europe it’s easier to feel alone; everybody is so individualistic, worried for their own problems that nobody really sees you,” he says. “In the countries I’ve visited, people are warm, give you food and shelter. It’s not possible to feel lonely.”

Important tools The most important tools for

such long trips are not a jackknife or a GPS. They are seven basic simple

phrases like “thank you,” “hi,” “my name is Jeremy Marie. I’m 25 and I’m French,” as well as an explanation about what his journey entails. In every country, he asks somebody to help him to translate all this information. He also caries a journal and a digital camera, which had to be “redecorated” with masking tape to look unusable so nobody would wish to steal it from him.

Across the poorest nations of

the world, where he’s been, from Sudan to Belize, Marie has been challenged by adverse circumstances. “Governments are destroying their own countries by destroying their people,” he says. Marie is going to the U.S., then Canada and Alaska. After that, he will return to Mexico and South America.

Computer Security

Make Changing the World Your Business troubleshoot, configure, install, upgrade, and repair hardware and software in a microcomputer environment.

By Peter H. Okun Attacks on computer networks have destroyed systems and revealed confidential information translating to huge losses. It’s all too often we hear about this through the news media. Is there a way to help protect businesses from the threat of hackers? As daunting as it may sound, there is a powerful upside. The explosive use of computers and information technology has created a high demand for specialists in the areas of help-desk technicians and network and computer systems administrators. According to the US Department of Labor, this field is expected to increase 18 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations.* Hackers are becoming more targeted and attacks are happening below the radar. They have many ways of hacking and gaining access to systems. One method of obtaining information out of a computer is by using a virus. By accessing the

network, a hacker can easily put a virus in the source code in wellknown programs which will damage computers that run or use this software. Computer crime can cause devastating results. It can cause damage involving data. Once inside, a hacker can steal desired information such as credit-card number, bank account numbers, and personal information. Companies need to re-evaluate their security systems and assess their vulnerabilities and respond accordingly by taking actions such as hiring individuals with security skills and using intrusion detection systems to help strengthen defenses. Information is very valuable and a highly sought after commodity on the Internet. Protecting information can be vital in a company staying in business. As technology becomes more sophisticated and complex, companies are looking for individuals that have the knowledge to diagnose,

Rekindle Your Career at the College for Working Adults 40% minority students. With seven regional centers across the country, it is helping over 6,000 adults realize their own power to change their lives through advanced education.

This seems especially true today in the current economic downturn. Finding a learning environment which is itself highly adaptable is the key, where, as Socrates said, “education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” Cambridge College was created primarily for adults who want to validate their knowledge and kindle that flame in a respectful environment. They feel they have much to teach as well as to learn, and want classes that fit their responsibilities and lifestyles. The College is nationally recognized for adult teaching and learning. Students who have overcome great challenges have always been central to its mission, and enjoy a great deal of mentor support. They are encouraged to meet regularly with faculty and academic advisors to discuss their progress and help ensure success. Although higher education has become essential, rising tuition costs make it difficult. The College is academically excellent, time-efficient, and cost-effective; maintaining one of the lowest tuition rates among private universities and independent colleges in Massachusetts. Because many adults hold down full-time jobs and support their families, flexible class schedules are a priority, so classes are held on weekends and in the evenings. Cambridge College offers a bachelor’s degree, and masters degrees in education, psychology and counseling psychology, management, a doctor of education in educational leadership and certificates in advanced graduate studies, as well as additional certificate programs. The instructors are not just academically qualified experts, but

In the romantic days of publishing, it used to be that the production of a book was almost as impressive as the writing itself — fine binding, embossed type, expensive paper stock, maybe even an illustration to wrap up the whole package was just expected. But now, with cashstrapped book publishers trying to cut every possible corner to increase their profit margins, gone are such niceties. “It’s almost gotten to the point where authors should feel lucky their words aren’t printed on tissue paper,� a writer recently griped to us.

In an ideal world, or at least the one that rock bands used to inhabit, a record was made, a tour undertaken, millions of records sold, and the cycle was repeated — rehab stints and tiffs notwithstanding. But at least two rock juggernauts, Aerosmith and No Doubt, will tour this summer without so much as a greatest hits set. For No Doubt it’s a “getting to know each other again” tour. For Aerosmith, well, they had planned to have a new record, but ... “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans,” says guitarist Joe Perry. “We had things all lined up with the new record. For various reasons, it just, well, things slowed down.” He explains this with the kind of slow curl in his raspy voice that shows both frustration and acceptance. “Steven got pneumonia near the end of the pre-production,” he says about singer Steven Tyler. Not to mention that second guitarist Brad Whitford just underwent an unspecified surgical procedure. “Things

just happened,” Perry says. Lest anyone think the band’s seniority is a factor, he adds, “It doesn’t have anything to do with age.” Indeed, anyone familiar with the Boston band’s history will agree: From falling off the stage to falling off the wagon, when it comes to Aerosmith, the road is often bumpy. However, life’s little disruptions can turn up unexpected pleasures. If Aerosmith had finished a new record in time for this tour, fans wouldn’t be treated to a pinch-yourself dream performance of the band playing the 1975 gem “Toys in the Attic” in its en-

tirety, which includes such hits as “Walk This Way” and a long version of “Sweet Emotion.” As for the new album, Perry projects a 2010 release date: “I would say, basically, it’s ready, musically. There’s still some lyrics to be written. We’re pretty much expecting it wouldn’t take long if we’re all healthy, ya know?”

“The signs of change are real, if still limited in scope.”

t is comforting to witness the capacity for real change in the United States and among Arabs. It is also refreshing to hear so many in the region wonder whether the softer, gentler Obama approach is eliciting reciprocal common sense from different parts of the Middle East. Transformative moments like this remind us how important it is to acknowledge two key realities: public opinion, popular perceptions and foreign policies are intimately linked in a perpetual embrace that sees them evolve together, and, it is inaccurate to ascribe all good or bad things to one side or the other.

Yesterday we asked: Will Benjamin Netanyahu’s latest speech help or hurt the Middle East peace process?

ne of the fascinating developments taking place before our eyes these days is the evolution of American power and presence in the Middle East — though it remains to be seen if this is a truly constructive change in policy or merely a temporary cosmetic repackaging of failed old ways. Nevertheless, two important points should be noted: American power is a constant factor in the Middle East, regardless of whether one likes or dislikes how it is applied; and public perceptions of the United States throughout the Middle East are not fixed in stone, but rather respond in tandem to evolving American policies. If we look at public opinion in this region and the policies and words of the U.S. leadership, we find that change has occurred first and more clearly in the United States than it has in the Middle East. The more accommodating tone and some adjusted policies by the new U.S. administration are largely a response to realities on the ground. A more relaxed regional context in which, most notably, the United States, Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia spent more time recently exploring diplomatic opportunities — rather than plotting new bombing targets and sanctions — has triggered both the toned-down rhetoric from D.C. and the revived dynamism of centrist politics in the Arab world and Iran. (Though as I write, Iran appears to be producing an Iranian version of the 2000 U.S. election.) Life on the edge, in a world of perpetual brinksmanship and confrontation, has proven both uncomfortable and widely unsustainable for most players in the Middle East. So, wisely they are exploring other ways.

At that age, your brain is literally gasping for oxygen.” “With each passing birthday, less and less oxygen gets to your starving brain cells as a result of toxic build-up and impaired neurotransmitter capacity,” he adds. “Severely depleted neurotransmitters dull your cognitive powers, constricting your ability to concentrate, to remember things, and to make even the simplest decisions.” “Procera AVH fixes all of that,” he says. Users report that mental focus returns and memory powers snap back to where they were 10, even 15 years ago. “I was forgetting my employees’ names and it was really embarrassing,” says user Jeff P. “After a week on Procera, I started remembering them again and I was much more focused and self-confident.” Procera AVH increases the blood circulation in the brain, flooding oxygen-starved cells with fresh supplies of energizing oxygen and vital brain nutri-

Including their weekend series at Philadelphia, they have 15 straight games against NL foes — nearly 10 percent of their full slate.

ule for Boston. When the 18-game interleague slate is done, they’ll have played six games against the cream of the NL East — the Mets and Phillies. The Yankees get nine, a result of two sets against the Mets. So far, so good — The Sox are 3-3 in interleague play so far this year, the same as the Yankees. The Rays, meanwhile, have used the games to make up some ground: They’re 5-1 against NL opponents. Toronto is scuffling, with an 0-6 interleague mark.

Hawpe’s hot bat has helped Colorado to an 11-game winning streak. They’ve moved into third place in the NL West. Four home runs, five doubles, 10 RBIs in his last 10 games — that’s the kind of production the Yanks paid dearly for. The Toronto ace — and maybe the best starter in the AL East — has avoided a DL stint due to a mild groin strain. He’s 10-1 with a 2.53 ERA. A strained right ankle tendon has the all-world Padres starter on the DL. That won’t help his trade value for San Diego. Detroit’s multimilliondollar man has hit a rough patch. He has just four hits in his last 10 games, with one home run and one RBI. His average is “down” to .320.

Leigh Bodden and Paris Lenon, who were both on the Lions last year when they became the first team in league history to go 016, have finished their first minicamp with the Pats. Just a hunch, but they’re probably not going to lose 16 games again this year. “I just wanted to go to a winning program,” said Bodden, a six-year veteran who has never played in the playoffs. “I didn’t want to go pretty much in the same direction. I decided to come here, and I was happy that they wanted me as well.” Bodden has a chance to be one of the Patriots’ starting cornerbacks, and Lenon — who has lost 17 consecutive games and 23 of his last 24 — will compete for a roster spot at

While Lenon admitted a New England camp has a different feel than one with the Lions, he clearly never expected to put up a no-win season. “I don’t think anybody approaches a season, regardless of the team, and thinks that they’re not going to do well,” Lenon said. “I believe everybody goes into the season with the mind-set of being the best team.” Now they’re with the Pats, the only team in the league to win at least nine games in the last eight seasons. New England is 97-31 since 2001, and its .758 winning percentage is the highest among all major American professional sports over that time. Clearly, they’re not in Detroit anymore.

B’s Thomas on watching the Final: ‘How dreams are built’ This year’s Stanley Cup Final had few viewers more interested than Tim Thomas. The Bruins goalie wished he had been on the ice rather than watching the Penguins’ Game 7 victory. Still, the pain of the B’s Eastern Conference semifinals loss to the Carolina Hurricanes wasn’t enough to keep him from seeing the contest, which he caught in an airport in Dallas thanks to a delayed flight. “It’s hard to watch, but I

watch from a different perspective,” Thomas told Metro yesterday. “That’s how dreams are built. You’re thinking to yourself, ‘Man, I want to be that team. I want to be holding the trophy at the end of the season.’ “That’s why I watch, to build desire and to watch how other players react to situations.” Thomas, who took a star turn this year with a 36-117 record and a 2.10 goalsagainst average in 54 starts, was impressed with

the Penguins, but he was reticent to call them a dynasty in the making. “It’s harder and harder to build a dynasty in today’s salary cap world,” the goalie said. “[Sidney] Crosby and [Evgeni] Malkin are great players, and they might be able to afford both of them.

Bruins give general manager Chiarelli a contract extension NHL. Peter Chiarelli, the architect of the Bruins team that reached the conference semifinals, is sticking around a while. The Boston general man-

ager has been given a multiyear contract extension, the team announced yesterday. The Bruins’ 116 points were third-most in team history. METRO

“But guys like [Ruslan] Fedotenko and Brooks Orpik, those guys are going to all want raises.” Thomas said he’s just started to get back on the ice to prepare for next season. He’s a leading candidate for the Vezina Trophy as the top goalie in the NHL. METRO/ADAM SMARTSCHAN
