Somerville resident Amanda King, 32, bikes 16 miles roundtrip to work in Waltham, on average three times a week during the summer. While she knows the risks of riding the roads, taking safety precautions and not being complacent is how she says she stays safe. “When I first started biking, I thought, how can I possibly bike on the road — I’m going to get killed,” she said. “Now, I’m not as worried about it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not very wise to the dangers.” When it comes to safety, King rides her bike wearing a helmet and fluorescent-colored vest. She mounts blinking lights on her helmet and the front and back of her bike. She “signals like a lunatic” to drivers, never runs red lights and stays as far to the right as possible, she …

The former Liberian president was also a student in Newton, was arrested in Somerville, and escaped from prison in Plymouth before he became the first head of state since Nuremberg to be convicted by an international war crimes court.
Former Liberian President Charles G. Taylor was convicted yesterday in The Hague after an international court convicted him on charges that included murder, rape, sexual slavery and enforced amputations. The UK's The Guardian writes: "The first African president to be prosecuted at an international court has been found guilty of aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity for supporting rebels who carried out atrocities in Sierra Leone in return for "blood diamonds". The historic judgment leaves Charles Taylor...facing a lengthy term in a British prison and will set a precedent that heads of state can no longer consider themselves immune to international justice." But the Liberian-born Taylor spent his college years and …
