The Retired Investor: The Business of Space
By Bill Schmick,
06:11PM / Thursday, February 04, 2021
Space! It holds the promise of riches beyond our wildest dreams -- solar systems bursting with precious resources ripe for the taking. Just the idea of such prizes has set off a frenzied rush by global business entrepreneurs to claim stakes in this new frontier.   The private sector has increasingly pushed aside governments and their contractors in a frenzied bid to develop commercial space exploration. At the same time, using all their cost-cutting prowess to reduce the cost of putting people and objects into orbit, and that is only the first step.   This year, for example, there are three separate missions to Mars, which are scheduled to arrive in February.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:58PM / Thursday, February 04, 2021
BOSTON — Occupancy levels for restaurants will be raised to 40 percent beginning Monday, Feb. 8, but informal gathering limits will remain in place for now.   The stay-at-home advisory and early closures regulation was lifted two weeks ago as cases and hospitalizations had trended downward. Gov. Charlie Baker said the restrictions put in place over the past couple months had helped to reduce the spike in cases seen over the holiday season.   "Since the start of 2021, the commonwealth has seen positive trends emerge as hospitalizations have decreased, and the percent of positive cases has declined at a steady rate, the same time our administration has continued to ramp

Williamstown DIRE Committee Talks About Need for Historical Accuracy
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:17AM / Thursday, February 04, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — With the town's Diversity, Inclusion and Racial Equity Committee meeting on the first day of February, it was a perfect time for its chair to note the arrival of Black History Month.   And although Mohammed Memfis noted that he likes to think of every month as Black History Month, February is "a great time for people to learn things about Black history that they may not have known before," he said.   "And to realize that American history would be not [just] incomplete but incorrect without the story of Black people in this country and the histories of Black people."   The story of Williamstown and its historic association

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

Charlie Baker on Wednesday once again defended his administration COVID-19 track record while saying that it has been open to responding to criticism throughout the pandemic.   In an appearance at Fenway Park to herald one of the commonwealth's mass vaccination sites, Baker was asked about those who continue to question the state's strategy to roll out vaccines by targeting specific populations on a phased basis.   Baker said he himself was not satisfied with all aspects of the state's response to COVID-19, but he was not going to apologize for the phased approach to vaccine distribution.   "The first thing I would say is I get how unhappy

Baker: Bay Staters Working from Home Could Make Nor'easter Less Problematic
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:40PM / Monday, February 01, 2021
BOSTON — As the state geared up for the first major snowfall of 2021, the pandemic factored in -- but, for once, not always as a negative.   Gov. Charlie Baker and other administration officials met with the media Monday morning to talk about the commonwealth's preparedness for a Nor'easter expected to dump more than a foot of snow on Berkshire County.   Asked what was different about planning for this storm versus past weather events, Baker admitted that there is a small upside to dealing with a Nor'easter in a time when many Bay Staters already are doing their best to stay home as much as possible.   "The fact that so many people have the ability or

Q&A: Williams Senior Takes Big Bite Out of 'Shark Tank'
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

"I think you two guys are two of the youngest most impressive people we've ever had out here."   Later, Herjavec added,
