By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Friday, Nov. 9, the 314th day of 2012.

On this day in 1965, a huge power failure near Ontario left millions of people in the eastern parts of the U.S. and Canada in the dark.

On this day in 1872, a fire that started in a basement warehouse ripped through the city of  Boston, killing 14 people and destroying hundreds of buildings.

It’s featured everyone from the Beatles to Snooki on its front cover. On this day in 1967, the first  issue of Rolling Stone was published.

Today’s birthdays include – the late astronomer Carl Sagan (1934); actor Lou Ferrigno (1951) and actress Nikki Blonsky (1988).

Here are six tips for the day -

1. Good news for the city of Marlborough as Boston Scientific has announced it will be moving its global headquarters to Marlborough starting next year.
