'Dolittle': Physician, Heal Thy Self
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:51PM / Thursday, January 23, 2020
It was early in director Stephan Gaghan's "Dolittle," the umpteenth permutation derived of Hugh Lofting's 1920 novel, "The Story of Doctor Dolittle," when I began to bemoan my choice of occupation. Little on the screen could dissuade me from the self-pity. So, I resorted to fantasizing. What would have been so terrible about being a podiatrist?   "Madge, anyone left out there?"   "Yes, Dr. Goldberger, Mrs. Berkowitz, your 5:30, is your last."   "Send her in. How are you, Mrs. Berkowitz? Corns still bothering you?"   "Oy, don't ask, Dr. Goldberger. And I think it's worse from the walking around at the

Weekend's Looking Warmer But Will Bring Mix of Snow & Rain
02:34PM / Thursday, January 23, 2020

Can you BELIEVE the snow in Newfoundland?! https://t.co/3FoBJX2Tgq

— Christina Erne (@ChristinaErne) January 23, 2020 After a few days in the icebox, temperatures will be turning above freezing going into the weekend and there's a chance of snow — or more likely rain, as a storm system moves north of the Berkshires.    But with temperatures hovering near freezing, especially in the evening, that rain could turn to black ice making for treacherous driving.    "Because of the patchy nature of the ice, some motorists and pedestrians may think the entire stretch of roads or sidewalks are just wet. The ground can be icy even though car or home

Housing, Jobs and Transportation Top County Needs
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:22AM / Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Congressman Richie Neal addresses the gathering on Friday at MCLA. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — An individual in Berkshire County with a minimum wage job has to work 57 hours a week to afford a one-bedroom apartment.   If it's two parents with a child, they both need to be working full time and earning $14.41 an hour — $1.66 above the state minimum wage — to support their family.   There's a good chance they're renting because even though homeownership in the county is higher than the state average, in some areas, like Adams and North Adams, more than 40 percent of residents rent.

@theMarket: Fed Stimulus Continues to Pump the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:59PM / Friday, January 17, 2020
When asked, the members of the Federal Reserve Board continue to argue that the almost $500 million they have pumped into the overnight repurchase market since September is not quantitative easing. The stock market disagrees.   "Not QE" is the term most often used by the Street in describing this fairly hefty expansion of the central bank's balance sheet. Because the purchases that the Fed is making are categorized as debt instruments that mature in 12 months or less, they escape the hard and fast definition of what the Fed labels as quantitative easing. QE is the purchase of longer-dated maturities of debt instruments, so the Fed is technically correct.   However,
