10:38PM / Saturday, July 24, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Despite a furious comeback effort by the team from North Berkshires, the North End hung on for a 7-5 win in Friday's opener of the La Festa Baseball Exchange.   The players from both teams will hang on to the memories of the weekend even longer.   "At the cookout today, when the kids sat down to eat, it wasn't by team," organizer George Canales said during Saturday's pregame ceremonies at Joe Wolfe Field. "It was three kids from North Adams and three kids from the North End.   "Winning and losing isn't everything in this game. It's the friendships that are made. Just have fun tonight."   Canales would

@theMarket: Wild Week for Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
03:14PM / Friday, July 23, 2021
In just one week, the major averages have had a 3 percent swing from lows to highs. These gyrations go hand in hand with the high level of indecision investors are feeling right now. Can you blame them?   Last week, and into the end of the day on Monday, the S&P 500 Index registered a 3 percent decline. In the next few days, all of those losses were recouped and then some. While investors breathed a sigh of relief, I don't think we are out of the woods just yet.   Most strategists blame the decline in stocks on the free fall in yields. The U.S Treasury Ten-Year Bond (the "Tens") fell to 1.13 percent at its lowest point on Monday. At the same time, the U.S. dollar

Q&A: Williams Museum Exhibit to Explore Olympic Art as Propaganda
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:35AM / Thursday, July 22, 2021

Elissa Watters earned a master's degree from Williams College in 2018. She returns as the guest curator of 'Art Sport, and Propaganda: 1972 Munich Olympics.' WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Marketing is integral to the modern Olympic Games, and the products are not limited to sneakers and sports drinks.   A major product is the host country.   Perhaps the best known example came in 1936, when Hitler's Germany planned to use the games to promote the notion of the "master race" … only to have America's Jesse Owens make the Fuhrer look foolish.   Thirty-six years later, the Olympics were back in Germany, and the hosts' national identity
