After a couple of days of hand wringing, traders are now going with the notion that if the Fed raises rates in June or July, it may actually be good for the economy. Don't put too much stock in that, however, because herd sentiment can turn quickly with one simple statement from the Fed.

You have to be impressed with the market's performance. In the face of a potential interest rate hike in less than three weeks and a June decision on whether Great Britain will exit the Eurozone, the market continues to grind higher.

'The Nice Guys': The Case of the Dueling Detectives
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
08:54PM / Thursday, May 26, 2016

First of all, you should know that most of the people who meet their untimely and often gruesome demise in director Shane Black's wacky combination of comedy and murder are bad.

Still, it takes a little getting used to the seesaw temperament in this throwback buddy movie dialed up to today's cynicism. But thanks to Black's smart tempo and the fine chemistry Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling conjure as nuttily contrasting private eyes, it works.

It is about keeping the benefits we have," Christine Casino, a local union steward, told the City Council on

03:41PM / Thursday, May 26, 2016

So you want to be your own boss, make lots of money and do it all from the comfort of your home? It is the siren song of direct sales that has recruited legions of Americans through the years. Some make it, most do not. Here are some tips to help you in your new adventure.

Whether you want to sell jewelry, vitamins, candles, cosmetics or home products, a healthy dose of skepticism should be applied to the promises these companies make on their websites.
