We came across this video on Youtube of RMV employees (in conjunction with WPD) doing some sort of soft checkpoint at the former CVS location near the corner of Park Avenue and Pleasant Street

Peregrine Falcons in Worcester

A Central Mass birder has been taking some awesome photos and videos of two juvenile peregrine falcons that have been making their home downtown.

Worcester in Washington Post

It seems as if Worcester’s becoming the go-to spot for public heath reporting.

The city’s efforts to reduce smoking rates with a perennially shrinking budget appear on the Washington Post website.

Great quote from Derek Brindisi:

“I have this idea of coming up with a video of what cities used to be like in the 1900s just to show what a big impact public health departments have had,” Brindisi said. “Sometimes, I feel like we should just get a helicopter so people know we’re here.”

Upton Civilian Conservation Corps Camp

From Mass DCR:

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Historic Curatorship Program is pleased to invite proposals for the rehabilitation, reuse and maintenance of the historic Upton CCC Camp Cottage and Administration Building.   The Request for Proposals seeks to identify qualified parties interested in exchanging their skills and resources for a long term lease in one of the state’s most historically significant parks.

If this sounds like something up your alley, there will be an open house next Tuesday, July 10, 2012, from 4-6pm (please RSVP). Responses to the RFP are due on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 5:00pm.

Pollution & Poverty in Worcester

There’s a long article on the Scientific American website about lead exposure and stress as causes for health issues in poor children; a Worcester family is profiled:

When doctors told Wanda Ford her 2-year-old son had lead poisoning, she never suspected that the backyard in her low-income neighborhood was the likely culprit.

Ford knew that exposure to the heavy metal could be dangerous. So when she and her husband moved into the Lower Lincoln Street neighborhood, Ford, then pregnant, took steps to make sure their 100-year-old home was lead-free.

“We never thought to test the soil – my son played in the backyard all the time,” said Ford, whose son is now seven.

There’s a nice mention of Worcester Roots Project at the end of the article.

On the pronunciation of Worcester

Ever wondered why Worcester is

pronounced the way is is?

So was a reader of the Grammarphobia blog.

And, while the authors can’t fully explain why our linguistic forbears chose to spell a syllable that sounds like “ster” as “cester”, they do explain that the pronunciation (and spelling) go back at least as far as Shakespeare.
