04:26PM / Saturday, August 18, 2018

Students test the sunscreen they made using a spectrophotometer, which measures absorption of UV radiation

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The transition from high school to college can be disorienting, perhaps even more so when you're trying to figure out not only what you want to study but where that study might take you.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has been trying to make the change a little easier for first-year students in its science, technology, engineering and math programs through the Berkshire Bank STEM Academy.

Now in its sixth year, the academy offers five days on campus meeting professors and likely classmates and trying out the labs in the new Feigenbaum Center

Daughter's Book Celebrates Legacy of Leonard Bernstein
By Stephen Dankner, Guest Column
12:00PM / Friday, August 17, 2018

It's hard to imagine the classical music world without Leonard Bernstein. His death, 28 years ago, left a void that will be very difficult, if not impossible, to fill. Yes, there are young, stellar conductors now on the scene who hold great promise – Ken-David Masur in Boston and the fiery Gustavo Dudamel in Los Angeles. Time will tell if they, or others, possess the potential of the mature Bernstein, who was blessed with unparalleled musical and communicative gifts as conductor, composer, pianist and mentor/lecturer - classical music’s, and America’s, emissary to the world.

There were three great composers who created and thus changed the course of early-to mid-20th

The Independent Investor: Turmoil in Turkey
By Bill Schmick,
04:28PM / Thursday, August 16, 2018
Turkey, a country that represents about 1 percent of the world's gross domestic product, has suddenly become a cause of concern for investors worldwide. Both developed and emerging financial markets have plunged over the last week as that country's currency plummeted. Fear that this tiny country's problems could somehow spark a global financial contagion has everyone on edge.   Those fears are unfounded. There will be no "contagion."  What is happening in Turkey is truly a "Tempest in a Teapot" that bears little resemblance to the crisis in Greece several years ago. Yet, over the last week, Turkey's currency, the lira, fell to record lows,

'BlacKkKlansman': There's no Politics like Show Business
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:35PM / Thursday, August 16, 2018
I doubt I've ever reviewed a movie more important than Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman."   Greater? Most likely. Although, in astutely fashioning his heartfelt SOS about America's burgeoning racist threat, Spike Lee is no slouch in the art department, either. This scintillating film based on a true story about how, via a white counterpart, Afro-American cop Ron Stallworth infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan, wouldn't be nearly as shocking in its appeal to our better angels were it not such a fine achievement in cinema.   Will it win Best Picture? A mere bag of shells. If Lee's magnum opus proves to be this generation's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

By Stephen Dankner, Guest Column
08:26AM / Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Cellist Yo-To Ma returns to Tanglewood on Sunday, Aug. 19.

Come late August, classical aficionados are grateful for the cornucopia of musical riches the Boston Symphony Orchestra bestows to rapt audiences within the incomparably bucolic setting that is Tanglewood. Many of those superlative concerts will reside in our collective memory for a long time.

During this penultimate week of the Tanglewood Music Festival, the spotlight will focus on a range of classical fare in varied genres: from chamber and solo piano music by Beethoven, Brahms, Britten and Mahler to symphonic works by Beethoven, Copland, Bartók and Shostakovich. A special treat – part of Tanglewood's
