By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:53PM / Friday, July 26, 2019

Sen. Adam Hinds had an opportunity to bring the presentation to Pittsfield and it tied right in with the series of technology classes the senior center has begun. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The phone rings and the first six digits are local, looks like your number, so you answer.    Now all of a sudden your grandson is in trouble. He's being held overseas and the only way to free him and bring him home is to wire money to a foreign nation.    It's a scam. The caller wants you to feel urgent.

@theMarket: All Eyes on the Fed
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Friday, July 26, 2019

'The Lion King': Reigns On
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:19PM / Thursday, July 25, 2019
Watching director Jon Favreau's spectacularly buoyant homage to the circle of life, I bemoaned not having had a little niece or nephew on loan to give me the moppet point of view. As Art Linkletter noted, kids say the darnedest things, and a quote from Taylor or Max would have at least facilitated an opening paragraph.

U.S. tariffs on China is a case in point.   Now to hear it from the White House, slapping tariffs on imports from China is going to change the entire equation of how companies do business. As it becomes more expensive to import from China, Donald Trump promised that other foreign countries were going to flock to the U.S. creating more jobs, more tax revenues, and generally become a big part of "making the U.S. great again."   So far, the president is half right. Over 50 multinational companies have announced
