@theMarket: FOMO Infects Investors
By Bill Schmick,
04:55PM / Friday, January 24, 2020
The stock market is frothy. The great gains that investors experienced last year are extending into this year. As the indexes climb, more and more of those on the sidelines are jumping in. Is this a good sign?   No, it isn't. "The Fear of Missing Out," or FOMO is rearing its greedy head on Wall Street. Those who may have raised some cash in the past few months, fearing a trade war, or the impeachment proceedings, have watched the portfolios underperform the averages, ignore all the negative news and climb higher.   On the geopolitical front, we have seen the same thing. Selling on fear of an Iranian response to the killing of one of their heroes was the wrong move

Price Rite Marketplace Shows Off Remodel to Happy Customers
By Jeff Snoonian, iBerkshires Correspondent
12:23PM / Friday, January 24, 2020

Hugh Black of Pittsfield braved the cold temperatures to be at the reopening.  

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A brighter, redesigned, upgraded Price Rite Marketplace opened Friday morning on Dalton Avenue.

The 25-year-old grocery chain is rebranding all of its Massachusetts locations with a goal of an improved customer experience.

People were lined up before 7 a.m. for the 8 o'clock opening. The temperature was a seasonable 15 degrees so there was a fair amount of foot shuffling and blowing into hands. By 7:30, the number grew to several dozen and by the time 8 o'clock neared, it was close to 200 and stretched right around the perimeter of the parking lot.

The first 400

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Police Department will reissue its rules and regulations to all officers in response to an issuance error.    Police Chief Michael Wynn discussed two cases with the Police Advisory and Review Board on Tuesday that have prompted it to reissue rules and regulations across the board.   "All members of the department will get a new version and then re-sign for them," Wynn said.

The Independent Investor: Intellectual Property Has Not Always Been So Important
By Bill Schmick,
04:33PM / Thursday, January 23, 2020
America's intellectual property (IP) is worth more than $6.6 trillion and employs 45 million Americans and hundreds of millions more worldwide. It is estimated that IP-intensive industries account for one-third of the country's total Gross Domestic Product and 52 percent of U.S. merchandise exports. It is why we, as a country, are fighting so hard to protect these rights today.   The figures above come from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. If anything, they understate the value of IP to all of us. So what, exactly is IP? Generally, it is any product of the human intellect that the law protects from unauthorized use by others. Inventions, literary and artistic works, symbols,

'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
