Annette Kellerman: Hollywood’s first nude star appeared at Revere Beach in 1907

_88297973_edprofile_kellerman2

By Justin Parkinson BBC News Magazine 20 February 2016 In 1907, Kellerman was arrested on Revere Beach, Boston, for wearing one of her suits without a skirt. But the judge accepted it had been designed for exercise and was decent, provided she wore a skirt until entering the water. t’s 100 years since Annette Kellerman became the first person to appear nude in a Hollywood film. But this was just one of many remarkable events in her life. She sat naked on a tree branch, her arms stretched upwards, but her hair largely covered her breasts. It might not seem very risque today, but this scene, from a film released in 1916, was an important event in the history of film. Annette Kellerman is regarded as the first star – male or female – to appear nude in a mainstream Hollywood production. The fantasy drama A Daughter of the Gods …

Filed Under: Carl Stevens, Christina Hager, Ice, Revere February 15, 2016   WBZ-TV  CBS Boston REVERE (CBS) — A floodgate problem over the weekend led to flooding and ice damage at homes on Arcadia Street at Oakland Island in Revere.   A pool of ice has formed under an Arcadia Street home in Revere. (WBZ-TV) Maureen Sullivan is one of many residents in the area who are putting the pieces back together on Monday. “Who’s going to pay for all the damage that’s done?” she asked. Revere has spent about $2 million trying to fix a floodgate, which is supposed to prevent the tide from flowing over a gully and gushing into the neighborhood. But the floodgate was so cold this weekend that it froze open, turning yards into crunchy, salty ice rinks.   Saltwater flooded into a Revere neighborhood over the weekend, creating ice skating rink-type yards.

US eases rules on Plovers

Plover image

Pairs of piping plovers have increased to 689 in Massachusetts. Protection efforts now target chicks. By David Abel BOSTON GLOBE STAFF JANUARY 22, 2016   (Globe staff file image) Fences that have barred beachgoers from prime spots along the Atlantic surf may come down this summer as the federal government prepares to relax restrictions designed to protect the piping plover in Massachusetts. The US Fish and Wildlife Service this week released a draft plan — the first of its kind along the East Coast — that would allow state and local beach officials far more flexibility in managing the increasing number of the sand-colored birds that have taken up residence on shores along Massachusetts, often throughout the summer. The plovers, which were deemed threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1986, have riled many beachgoers, as officials in recent years fenced off increasingly large swaths of beaches from Cape Ann …
