Like other schools in the state, BArT charter school is closed, making it impossible for drama students to put on their spring production. ADAMS, Mass. — When schools were forced to close in March, the drama group at Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School could have thrown in the towel on its spring production.   Instead, it decided to build a better "Mousetrap."   "We did not want to give up on the play and do want to keep the connection going with our cast mates," said John Kozak, a sophomore who has been involved in productions at school since the sixth grade. "We were all excited about doing 'The Mousetrap.'

By Bill Schmick,
04:14PM / Friday, May 01, 2020
Despite the expectation that earnings this quarter and next were going to be a disappointment, stocks have been gaining. That is because results have not been as low as some analysts have projected. However, when is better than bad not good enough for investors?   It appears we have found out this week. It is a known fact that mega-cap, technology companies (the FANG stocks) have been leading the market throughout this rebound.
