A new poll out this week shows Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren essentially tied. The poll also found that while 72 percent of voters are aware of questions surrounding Warren's heritage, 69 percent said they didn’t feel it was a significant story.

Boston native Sheldon Adelson said this week that his company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., is abandoning plans to pursue a casino in the state. Adelson raised concerns about over-saturation of the market if all three casino licenses were approved, something that Massachusetts Gaming Commission Chairman Stephen Crosby said isn't definite.

And after two years of CORI reform, ex-cons are still having trouble landing jobs. According to a new report out from the Boston Foundation and the Crime and Justice Institute,“effective implementation” of those reforms “requires ongoing support."

We talk about those stories and more in Radio Boston’s week in review.
