By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:45AM / Monday, July 29, 2019

Avocado quinoa rolls.  LENOX, Mass. —  Edward Esko has been telling people for decades that their diet can directly lead to specific health problems.   He's authored more than a dozen books on the subject and founded non-profits aimed at helping people get on better diets to prevent disease. And he sees a big issue coming: Alzheimer's disease.   As the large baby-boomer population moves into the prime age range when the cognitive disease sets in, a lot of people and families will be affected.   "Even though the iceberg has been sighted, it is still miles away.

Kalinowsky Seeks to Bring Fairness, Accountability to Mayor's Office
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:48PM / Sunday, July 28, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Karen Kalinowsky saw firsthand middle school children being "out of control" as a school resource officer. If no one is there to teach them right from wrong, the schools are going to suffer.   And when the schools suffer, leaders second guess themselves and the city suffers. The former school resource officer is looking to bring accountability to not only the students but to the city's administration.   "They were getting too light and kids were upping the ante. I'm not saying corporal punishment or anything. I'm saying if they do something wrong, you hold them accountable. I don't care if it lunch detention or what,

@theMarket: All Eyes on the Fed
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Friday, July 26, 2019
It was a week of chop. That was to be expected, given it was the first week of second-quarter earnings results. While some individual big-name stocks made substantial moves, the overall indexes traded up and down but ended the week about where they started.   It was largely what I predicted would happen. The same will apply to this coming week with all eyes intently focused on the July 31 meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee taking place next Wednesday. Investors expect the Fed to cut the Fed Funds interest rate by at least one quarter percent. Let's hope they do.   In the meantime, aside from earnings announcements, investors were confronted with some bad news out of
