Donít let investments go on vacation
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:29AM / Monday, July 12, 2021
Now that we've gained at least some space from the COVID-19 pandemic, summer travel is heating up. But while you might be eager to hit the road, you won't want your investments to take a vacation – you need them to work hard for you consistently. But how can you make this happen?   Here are some ideas: Know your destination. "If you don't know where you want to go, then it doesn't matter which path you take." This bit of wisdom, paraphrased from the classic children's book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, may be appropriate for, say, hikers exploring a new landscape.

Heroes. Perhaps the word conjures a superhuman figure, like those portrayed in Hollywood films. But real-life heroes live and work among us every day.    Educators, nurses, social workers, firefighters, police officers, respiratory care practitioners, and other essential workers in the Berkshires have been on the front lines of the pandemic since its inception. Many of these everyday heroes were trained in our backyard at Berkshire Community College (BCC). They relied on BCC as an affordable, flexible way to earn certificates or degrees in their fields, or as a stepping stone to transfer to a four-year college.      Fighting fires and crime  The Fire Science

Charlie loves to be pet and snuggled and is very playful.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Are you looking for a feline friend? Search no further than Pittsfield animal shelters.

@theMarket: Week of Surprises Keeps Investors Hopping
By Bill Schmick,
04:49PM / Friday, July 09, 2021
There were plenty of reasons why the stock market was a bit jumpy this week. Let's go through them.   Two weeks ago, I wrote that I was worried "that we could suddenly see a spike in new Delta variant cases that impacts economic growth.

The Retired Investor: China's Red Hand of Regulation

04:21PM / Thursday, July 08, 2021
Over the past several decades, investors, investing in China, have gotten used to the dichotomy of China's Communist-run, centralized government and its free-for-all stock market. That situation appears to be ending.   The latest (and most controversial) sign of China's increased interest in regulating and extending control of its largest companies came over the weekend. Fresh off the heels of a global $4.4 billion initial public offering, Didi, China's ride-hailing giant, was ordered to cease accepting new users, and to close down its app by China's internet regulators.   By midweek, the newly, U.S.-listed share price of Didi fell by well over 20 percent. But Didi
