In Pursuit of Beetle Happiness: Part 1
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
04:19PM / Sunday, February 10, 2019

Dogbane beetles feed on dogbane, a plant similar to milkweed.    Beneficial beetles belong.    In pursuit of beetle happiness, I can cast a note of optimism about the many beetles at large in museums and private collections, that may bring us a profound joy, allowing our sense of inquiry to thrive like a child set loose in New York's American Museum of Natural History.    Looking into my own remnant beetle collection, I see what remains of former halcyon grandeur, plus some foreign purchased papered specimens, acquisitions prepared without display pins in order to emphasize the extraordinary anatomy, namely jointed legs, frontal horns, and armored

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:40PM / Saturday, February 09, 2019

Helen Moon, director of special projects, outlined the vision for a juvenile diversion program that is currently being developed by the office. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — District Attorney Andrea Harrington doesn't see her job as simply tossing people into jail cells.    Instead, she is seeking to create a culture and environment where causes such as drug or mental health problems are addressed in the community so the crimes don't happen again.    "My vision, and it is a big vision, is for structural change and to reallocate resources from a system of prosecuting people, processing through the courts, and incarcerating people to a system that is more of

@theMarket: Markets Are China Dependent
By Bill Schmick,
04:23PM / Friday, February 08, 2019
Profit-taking is a natural and expected part of the stock market. That's why no one should be surprised that this week we are witnessing a period of consolidation. It is actually a good thing.   Given that most investors need a reason to explain any market declines, this week's announcement that President Trump is postponing his meeting with Xi, his Chinese counterpart, was both a surprise and a disappointment. It shouldn't be.   Over the last few months, I have tried to reduce investors' expectations of an easy, one-shot, Chinese break-through on the trade front. The postponement is actually a positive, in the sense that both sides are taking the negotiations
