By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Tuesday, April 23, 2019

David Moresi, left, at his new offices in the Norad Mill. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — David Moresi started flipping one house at a time nearly 20 years ago. That seems a bit far away now as Moresi & Associates moves into an expansive office space in his Norad Mill and now employees about 30 people.   The local developer hadn't planned on moving offices, or buying a 100,000-square-foot historic mill, or being engaged in a half-dozen (at least) different ventures ranging from restaurants to college housing. Rather than a straight line, Moresi and his company have taken a circuitous path, shifting and adapting as the economy has changed and opportunities

"But it was definitely talked about it,

New 'Dumbo' Left This Mom With Dry Eyes
By Rebecca Dravis,
09:12PM / Friday, April 19, 2019

When I first heard that Disney was making a live-action version of "Dumbo," I was pretty skeptical. After all, the main characters in this movie are animals, so unless Disney was going to venture into the territory of creepy "talking" real-life creatures, how were they going to pull this one off?

They didn't.

First the good news: Disney WAS able to create a story that didn't require creepy talking real-life animals, thank goodness. Instead, they used very cool special effects to create Dumbo and his mother, and the results of that were pretty spectacular. Dumbo, with his awkward-but-somehow-adorable ears and soulful eyes was as lifelike as possible - and he

@theMarket: Investors Reach for New Highs
By Bill Schmick,
03:10PM / Friday, April 19, 2019
The stock market won't quit. It has been on a tear since the day after Christmas. It feels like it wants to keep climbing. That would be a fairly simple feat at this point, since we are only a percent or so away from regaining those historical highs. What will happen once we get there.?   You may ask why am I so confident that the markets won't just give up the ghost right here, right now? A look under the hood at the underlying sectors that make up the market indices gives me a clue. Let's take the semiconductor sector. Throughout the last year or more, semiconductors, a sub-segment of the technology area of the market, have led stocks higher (and lower) time and time
