I contemplated the critiquing task that lay ahead with trepidation. Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," taking us once more into the breach of apocalyptic rumination and adventure, boasted a daunting length of 169 minutes. That's 2.81 human hours.

James Gander of the Massachusetts Nurses Association addresses the City Council on Wednesday night.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council will invite Berkshire Health Systems officials to attend a public forum to discuss progress made restoring services at the former North Adams Regional Hospital.

The decision to proffer the invitation came after nearly an hour of debate at Wednesday's meeting (held a day late because of Veterans Day) as councilors questioned the city government's role and determined a compromise solution through the mayor's office wasn't enough.

Preparing for worst-case scenarios brings peace of mind during the best of times. Here’s why.

In 2003, Tom was a healthy 43-year-old approaching the height of his earning power and living the happiest days of his life. He had a great job that fulfilled him, a loving wife, and he was a scratch golfer to boot. Life was good.

One day, as Tom was walking through an airport in Denver, his coworker noticed Tom was weaving as he walked and slurring as he spoke. They were on their way to a business meeting when Tom collapsed and had a massive stroke that no one – including Tom or his doctors – ever saw coming.
