BHS Awarded Grant to Support Low-cost Spaying & Neutering
02:48PM / Thursday, February 07, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Humane Society has received a grant for $18,000 from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition's License Plate Program to continue providing low-cost spay/neuter services for cats and dogs in Berkshire County.    This grant, which was funded in the fall of 2018, made BHS's successful "100 Cats for Christmas" program possible.

'They Shall Not Grow Old': When Johnny Comes Marching Home for Good
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:41PM / Thursday, February 07, 2019
"They Shall Not Grow Old," a haunting documentary commissioned by Britain's Imperial War Museum to commemorate the centennial of the conclusion of World War I is a brilliant homage, an artistic accomplishment and a must-see for film students, history buffs and cineastes alike.   While director Peter Jackson's numerous "Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" fantasies have long established him as a box office juggernaut, this 99-minute paean to all who found themselves engulfed, devastated, changed forever or killed in the war that was supposed to end all wars compellingly adds "groundbreaking" to the adjectives describing his filmmaking

@theMarket: The Fed Finds Religion
By Bill Schmick,
09:26AM / Saturday, February 02, 2019
After two years of tightening monetary policy, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank signaled this week that it was time to put their monetary tightening program on hold. The stock market soared in celebration.   As we closed out the month of January, stocks are gaining. The October-December declines that culminating in the "Christmas Eve Massacre," which were the worst in 80 years, are rapidly disappearing. Investors who were smart enough to hold fast should be made whole again by the end of this quarter, if not before.   That does not mean that the volatility that has beset the markets of late will fade away. Quite the contrary, I expect the wild swings in the stock market to

'Serenity': It's all Just a Big
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:52PM / Thursday, January 31, 2019
Viewing director Steven Knight's "Serenity, a film consumed with the notion that things aren't what they appear to be, I was uncomfortably reminded that I don't like to figure things out. I don't do puzzles, don't fancy mystery yarns unless they're old classics or approach the inventiveness of "The Usual Suspects" (1995), and if you ask me when train B will pass Train A if both leave their original locations at so and so time, I'll excuse myself, lie that I'll be right back, and head for the veranda for something less complicated, like a cocktail and maybe a few of those little hot dog hors d' oeuvres.   So, if you're looking for

The Independent Investor: Europe, the World's Sick Sibling
By Bill Schmick,
12:08PM / Thursday, January 31, 2019
The European Community is beset by worries. Brexit, trade threats, a slowing Chinese economy, and internal politics at home have all conspired to slow growth, employment, and positive sentiment.   This year, the EU will be lucky to see 1.5 percent GDP growth. In fact, the International Monetary Fund reduced their overall forecast this week for global growth largely as a result of poor performance out of Europe. Europe's powerhouse, Germany, saw its growth for 2019 cut by 0.6 percent because of anemic consumption and weak industrial production data.    Italy, one of the problem children of the EU, saw its growth forecasts cut by 0.4 percentage points as a result of weak
