@theMarket: Wild Week for Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
03:14PM / Friday, July 23, 2021
In just one week, the major averages have had a 3 percent swing from lows to highs. These gyrations go hand in hand with the high level of indecision investors are feeling right now. Can you blame them?   Last week, and into the end of the day on Monday, the S&P 500 Index registered a 3 percent decline. In the next few days, all of those losses were recouped and then some.

The U.S Treasury Ten-Year Bond (the "Tens") fell to 1.13 percent at its lowest point on Monday. At the same time, the U.S. dollar

North Adams Public Library Eliminates Overdue Fines
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
12:50AM / Friday, July 23, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It is time for a fresh start. At least so say the trustees of the library.   The Board of Trustees, with the mayor's approval, voted to wipe the slate clean, and effective immediately, all overdue fines on almost all library items have been eliminated.   "Charging overdue fines is a not-so-effective punitive practice that is distributed unevenly. At first glance, the thought is, 'well, just bring the items back, and you won't have fines' but what about when your car breaks down, or you are unexpectedly taking care of the grandkids for a week, or you get the flu, or you just really need two more days to finish that really good mystery
