Living together is not what it used to be
By Bill Schmick,
05:33PM / Thursday, March 30, 2017
Times are changing. Over 12 million Americans now "live in sin," as my parents would say, and their numbers are increasing every year. As long as they remain together, everything is copacetic, but what happens when they break up?   Thanks to the economy, demographics, and life-style choices, young couples today are living together and having children despite their unmarried status. In my own family, my niece is pregnant, unmarried, and has no intentions of tying the knot. Although her partner is the love of her life, they have decided (for now) to keep it that way.   And in today's economy, there may be a lot of good reasons not to get married. Number one among them

'Life': No Bowl of Cherries
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:22PM / Thursday, March 30, 2017

I'm tempted to give away the ending of director Daniel Espinosa's "Life," an extremely tense but run-of-the-mill outer space adventure that was heading for an only so-so rating even before its curiously misanthropic finish. I'd be doing you a favor.

Sure to be shocked, the viewer is left wondering why Espinosa, working from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, would paint such a depressing conclusion. You mean that's it? That's where we're headed? Well then, let me kill myself now. Even Schopenhauer, the granddaddy of pessimism, would be depressed.

Unable to recall another film that imploded so devastatingly in the last two minutes, canceling out

Teach Your Children Well About Finances and Investing
11:04AM / Wednesday, March 29, 2017

High debt levels … lack of savings … the inability to budget – these problems all have several causes, but one of them is almost certainly financial illiteracy. Too many of us just never developed the money management skills necessary to cope with our complicated – and expensive – world. But if you have young children, you can teach them some money-smart lessons – and who knows? You could use the opportunity to give yourself a few valuable reminders, too.

Here are some suggestions for a financial "curriculum":

* Save for a goal. In our highly commercialized culture, it's almost inevitable that your children will eventually become

Fake News Not New But Can Be Combatted: Panel
By Rebecca Dravis, iberkshires Staff
07:17PM / Tuesday, March 28, 2017

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — This article is not fake news.

How do you know? Well, for one, it's appearing in a reputable publication. Two, there's a byline at the top of the story. Three, there are actual real people quoted within the story.

Those are just three ways media consumers can judge the veracity of something they see online, according to a panel of media and education professors. The panel participated in a forum on Monday evening called "Fact or Fabrication in Today's News," jointly sponsored by the North Adams Public Library and the Milne Public Library in Williamstown. 

State Rep. Gailanne Cariddi moderated the panel, which included Tammy Daniels,

Rachel Branch, whose family donated substantially to the old hospital, has her book signed by Donovan at Stamford Library. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Adams (Mass.) Regional Hospital opened March 2, 1884, and closed this day 130 years later.   It employed thousands over that long century-plus, leaving a legacy that Dr. Paul Donovan's been working to document over the past three years.    "A lot goes into caring for patients outside of the economics of 'I'm getting paid to take care of patients,'" he said on Thursday during a talk at the Stamford Community Library. "That needs to be said. A number of people dedicated their lives to the

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:16PM / Monday, March 27, 2017
