Last weekend Japan held "snap" elections, which gave Prime Minister Shinzo Abe the mandate to continue his pro-growth economic policies.  No one outside Japan seemed to care. The Nikkei stock market index fell 1.6 percent and traders moved on. That may prove to be a big mistake.

Granted, given the precipitous decline in the price of oil and the calamity it is causing in Russia (well-covered in last week's columns), investors may be forgiven for focusing on other more immediate concerns. Still, I believe that now that Abe has a clear mandate to continue his pro-reform, economic policies, Japan's prospects for next year have been elevated considerably. And don't

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  The story of Exodus is by The Book, but played out with proper spectacle. All it needs is for Christian Bale to growl, 'I'm Moses.'

Filmgoers expecting some world-changing revelation from Ridley Scott's retelling of how Moses led the Israelites out of bondage will probably be disappointed by "Exodus: Gods and Kings."

Save for the usual dabs of poetic license that no iconic saga can escape when given the epic movie treatment, it is apparent that the director's chief impetuses are tradition and responsibility. As such, combined with the best special effects

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – It's ironic that retiring Eph head coach Mike Russo has never really been crazy about goalies, but you know that Russo is delighted today knowing that the goalie on his 1995 NCAA Championship team, Erin Sullivan '96, will succeed him as head coach of the Ephs.   "Erin is a wonderful person number one, with much integrity, and he understands what Williams is all about," Russo said. "I couldn't be happier to have Erin following me. He is widely respected throughout New England and he will do a great job."   Sullivan, a native of nearby Voorheesville, N.Y., comes to Williams after a successful career as the head coach at

If the prospect of asking your aging parents about the way they handle their household finances — or how they would feel about moving to a nursing home — fills you with apprehension, you are not alone. However, it’s the kind of conversation you can’t afford to delay indefinitely. As your parents get older, it’s critical to sit down with them and talk about their health and financial well-being — before urgent decisions are forced on you.

“The consequence of not having these discussions is that you aren’t prepared to make sound medical and financial choices when Mom or Dad has an emergency,” says Deborah Eickhoff, Vice President of

The division between Chairwoman Regina DiLego and School Committee member Robert Barton came to a head on Tuesday morning with Barton's resignation.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Citing distrust of the committee's chairman, a member of the Lanesborough School Committee on Tuesday morning tendered his resignation.

"Regina, last night's School Committee meeting was profoundly disturbing," Barton wrote, referring to the Monday meeting attended by just him and DiLego. "I have decided to
