The owners of An Tua Nua, 835 Beacon St., say they're giving the bar a mathematical name in the hopes of attracting all the science nerds who now live in the area, but othewise aren't planning any major changes to the watering hole.

The new name, Arc, comes from the geometrical notion of a curve, bar attorney Karen Simao told the Boston Licensing Board today. She added a compass will be part of the bar logo.

Service on the B Line was interrupted briefly around 1:30 p.m. by a family of ducks - and bystanders trying to convince them trolley tracks are not really all they're quacked up to be. MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo reports on the incident on Comm. Ave. near Blanford:

Approaching the tunnel portal, a trolley operator spotted a small group of people chasing some ducks on the Green Line right-of-way. The trolley operator stopped, and notified a Green Line supervisor. Service was interrupted for twelve minutes while the humans and waterfowl were cleared from the right-of-way.

UPDATE: A second Red Line train died at Alewife; another Green Line trolley gave up the ghost, bollxing up outbound C and E service. Commuter rail? You don't want to know.
