Imagine: A Boston-based movie that doesn't involve Southie, the North End or Charlestown

Ryan McDonough is trying to crowdsource a short film called Last Night in Rozzie.

McDonough, long over his days as the alcohol-infused Cuervo Man, describes the film:

When New York lawyer, Ronnie Russo, gets a surprise call from his childhood best friend with a dying wish, he apprehensively returns to the formerly beat-up Boston neighborhood of Roslindale for the first time in 25 years. On their last night together when they were both 12, after their final Little League baseball game together, Joey had proved how far he would go to protect him when Joey’s drunken father attacked them both. They haven't spoken since.

Finally, a drug company we can call our own - even if it is headquartered in Cambridge

The Boston Business Journal reports on the unveiling of Boston Pharmaceuticals, a Cambridge drug company headed by a guy a French drug company fired as its CEO last year - in part because they didn't like the idea of him running the joint from his new home in the Boston area.

The company is, of course, fully buzzword compliant:

Our mission is to provide novel strategic alternatives to companies and academics wishing to further de-risk and unlock the value of life improving medicines. We combine our team’s extensive clinical and business experience and a long-term capital base to efficiently develop programs to key clinical milestones for partnering and commercialization.

Sharon teen killed in West Bank attack

Schwartz was spending a year studying in an Israeli yeshiva. Several other American students at the school were injured in the attack. Ha'aretz reports a Palestinian man got out of a car in the Gush Etzion region around 4:30 p.m. and fired an Uzi at other cars; he then got back in the car, drove away and crashed the vehicle.

BPD document confirms use of cell-phone trackers

The New England Center for Investigative Reporting reports Boston Police signed an agreement with the FBI under then Commissioner Ed Davis to use "StingRay" devices that can be used for real-time tracking of cell phones.

Perhaps the most controversial provision requires the BPD to notify the FBI if any prosecutor intends to disclose sensitive information in court, and to seek dismissal of those cases if the FBI determines that such disclosure might compromise the technology.

Veteran charged with Worcester armory break-in; evidence includes data from GPS bracelet he was wearing

The Herald reports the arrest down on Long Island of James Walker Morales, 34, on charges he used a power saw and pry bar to cut into an Army armory in Worcester to steal ten handguns and six rifles - two days after he visited the armory to obtain copies of his Army discharge papers.

According to an FBI affidavit, investigators connected Morales to the break-in by submitting DNA from blood he left behind to an FBI DNA database.

Morales was out on bail on a child-rape indictment in Middlesex County. Data from the GPS device places Morales at the armory at the time of the break-in, the affidavit says.
