Candles for Dudes: Fun Gift or Proof Manliness is Dead?

Yankee Candle

Is a lawn-scented candle sexist? And if so, is it worth letting that go to protect a man’s ego?

That’s the quirky philosophical question Boston Globe editorial writer Jennifer Graham wrestled with in a recent piece. The candles in question are sold by Yankee Candle, the premiere name in smelly fire-based products.

Along with “Riding Mower,” the company sells “Mmm, Bacon!,” “Man Town,” “Movie Night” and “First Down” scents, all geared toward a male market (or to people who buy gifts for men. The collection gets a hearty push around Father’s Day).

What, dudes can’t like the smell of lilac?

Even if considering some smells are male and some female scents are sexist, Graham thinks maybe society can spot the fellas this last gasp of traditional manliness.

“These are the last permissible acts of sexism: mowing, grilling, and piloting the family car with the wife in the passenger seat,” she wrote. “These are allowable offenses, the soft sexism that’s still okay, even in a nation that too easily bristles. They are tender bones thrown to comfort men we love.” read more

Law enforcement officials are searching for who is responsible for detonating two explosives that killed three people and injured up to 125 near the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

Moments after two explosions occurred on Boylston Street Monday afternoon, panicked runners and spectators began fleeing Copley Square as police quickly cleared the area and locked down the Back Bay. 

“All of a sudden everyone turned around and was running in the opposite direction,” said Mary Bickford, 21, of Abington. Bickford was near the finish line when the bombs denoated. “All the runners, all the people cleared out, and police were going toward the finish line.”

Near the finish line, several survivors lay injured, some who had limbs torn off in the explosions. Others were crying as they took in the chaotic scene and first responders rushed in. 

Several victims, including an 8-year-old boy who died, were children. Childrens Hospital reported that those treated there included a 9-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, a 12-year-old, and a 2-year-old, the Boston Globe reported read more

Two Dead, Four Injured in Boston from CO Poisoning Related to Blizzard

Cars covered in snow.

Two people have died and four people were treated for carbon monoxide poisoning in Boston related to this past weekend’s blizzard, according to the Boston Public Health Commission. 

The posioning occured after the victims failed to clear their car’s tailpipe from snow blockages before starting their cars. 

One of the deaths in Boston was a 14-year-old Roxbury boy who he went inside a running car to keep warm while his father shoveled, the Boston Globe reported. 

In the second incident, a man was found dead in a car with a blocked tailpipe in Mattapan, police said. 

Katinka Podmaniczky, spokesperson for the BPHC, stressed how important it is to clear cars of snow properly before starting them.

“[We are trying to] get the word out about how important it is to clear the tailpipe and undercarriage before turning it on, or getting in,” she said. “We also suggest cracking the windows while you’re warming up the car.” read more
