New wayfinding signs to be piloted on South Boston Waterfront

In January, leaders from MassDOT, the City of Boston, the BRA, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, and A Better City released the South Boston Waterfront Sustainable Transportation Plan. This week, recommendations from the plan are being implemented in a series of action steps intended to improve all modes of transit in and around the waterfront.

One of the more visible signs of change (quite literally) comes in the form of a new pedestrian wayfinding pilot program.

Women share secrets to success in arts, business

“There are no mistakes. You will learn from everything,” said Kemal Harris, a top Hollywood power stylist, co-owner of Kemal + Karla, and costume designer for the Netflix series “House of Cards,” on the topic “The Art of Talking About Yourself: How to Position Your Value, Not Just Your Resume” at this year’s sold-out Massachusetts Conference for Women.

Attracting nearly 10,000 women, the Massachusetts Conference for Women was held on Thursday, December 10 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The one-day event, which has grown in size and scope since it was first held in 2005, featured 100 speakers and more than 30 workshops and seminars on the topics of leadership, career advancement and transitions, business and entrepreneurship, personal empowerment and finance, and more.

Lawn on D gets some love from The New York Times

You may already have plans for the weekend, but The New York Times has just weighed-in on the Boston spots that are worth a visit in the newspaper’s “36 Hours” travel column.

The Times says the historic staples of Symphony Hall, the Museum of Fine Arts, and Faneuil Hall are still worth a visit, but, “this little big town has emerged from its brainy, introverted shell to offer a livelier mix of cultural offerings, plus an exploding food scene.”

Lawn on D, the Hub’s creative outdoor space, was one part of the “livelier mix,” mentioned as a sight to see alongside a tour of Fenway Park and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

MassMutual Center in Downtown Springfield gets new LED scoreboard, lighting

At first glance, the black rectangle in Scott Griffith's hands looks like a bumpy piece of plastic.

But those bumps are really LEDs: light emitting diodes. It's those diodes, spaced a centimeter apart, that will light up in a few months and display highlights, statistics and advertising to Springfield Falcons fans when they take the ice at the MassMutual Center in downtown Springfield.

The black rectangles each have their own bit of computer circuitry and fit together to form the 18-foot-by-12-foot scoreboard panels that will be hung in a four-sided box over the ice.

Curved pieces go on the corners and wide strips of LED display go on the top and bottom for constantly rotating words and images. The whole thing gets topped with permanent light-up signs lettered with MassMutual Financial Group's logo.
