'Blade Runner 2049': Virtual Truth & Justice
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:58PM / Friday, October 13, 2017
I'm not exactly sure what I saw, but I kind of think it was sort of OK, maybe. It's quite a tussle trying to follow the unnecessarily convoluted story in Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049." The miasmic visuals of the scorched Earth scenario frustratingly obscure the gist of the thing. Yet, when the complicating fog eventually lifts way toward the end of the near three-hour followup to the 1982 "Blade Runner," we see it's not all that intricate. Rather, it's apparent that unable to dazzle us with brilliance, the director attempts to baffle us with, well, you know what.   The film attempts to compensate for its lack of truly ingenious plotting

iForum: Girl Scouts Already Doing Great Things in the Community
By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
12:45PM / Friday, October 13, 2017

You might have seen the group of 100 Girl Scouts in the Berkshire Mall last March, coming together to learn about other cultures on World Thinking Day.

I wanted to preserve the moment.

There, in front of me, stood six young ladies from my Girl Scout troop, holding three binders that, on the surface, didn't look all that interesting. But, as with people and programs like the Girl Scout program itself, there was more than meets the eye.

Inside the binders was a brand new curriculum these girls as fifth-graders had developed over the past six months to give to their two schools, Williamstown and Lanesborough elementary schools, to help teach other fifth-graders the Bill of Rights in a

02:14AM / Friday, October 13, 2017

The group has now asked the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission to serve as the "backbone" to support any consolidation efforts county school district undertake.   "We're not setting policy direction for them, we are providing administrative support," said Executive Director Nathaniel Karns.   BRPC already serves as the fiscal

International Investing: Still a Journey to Consider
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:16AM / Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Columbus Day was observed on October 9. And while it may be true that Leif Erikson and the Vikings beat Columbus to the New World, Columbus Day nonetheless remains important in the public eye, signifying themes such as exploration and discovery. As an investor, you don't have to "cross the ocean blue," as Columbus did, to find opportunities – but it may be a good idea to put some of your money to work outside the United States.

So, why should you consider investing internationally? The chief reason is diversification. If you only invest in U.S. companies, you might do well when the U.S. markets are soaring, as has happened in recent years. But when the inevitable
