A riveting and timely intellectual history of one of our most important capitalist institutions, Harvard Business School, from the bestselling author of The Firm. With The Firm, financial journalist Duff McDonald pulled back the curtain on consulting giant McKinsey & Company. In The Golden Passport, he reveals the inner workings of a singular nexus of power, ambition, and influence: Harvard Business School. Harvard University occupies a unique place in the public´s imagination, but HBS has arguably eclipsed its parent in terms of its influence on modern society. A Harvard degree guarantees respect. An HBS degree is, as the New York Times proclaimed in 1978, ´´the golden passport to life in the upper class.´´ Those holding Harvard MBAs are near-guaranteed entrance into Western capitalism´s most powerful realm-the corner office. Most people have a vague knowledge of the power of the HBS network, but few understand the dynamics that have made HBS an indestructible and powerful force for almost a century. As McDonald explores these dynamics, he also reveals how, despite HBS´s enormous success, it has failed with respect to the stated goal of its founders: ´´the multiplication of men who will handle their current business problems in socially constructive ways.´´ While HBS graduates tend to be very good at whatever they do, that is rarely the doing of good. In addition to teasing out the essence of this exclusive, if not necessarily ´´secret´´ club, McDonald explores two important questions: Has the school failed at reaching the goals it set for itself? And is HBS therefore complicit in the moral failings of Western capitalism? At a time of pronounced economic disparity and political unrest, this hard-hitting yet fair portrait offers a much-needed look at an institution that has a profound influence on the shape of our society and all our lives.

When she joined St. Kilda´s, the elite security consulting firm, Emma Cross thought she´d left behind the blood, the guilt, and the Tribal Wars that defined her life at the CIA. Yet trading spying for investigating yacht thefts didn´t alleviate the danger. Now, the same good instincts that got her into trouble at the agency might be the one thing that will help her survive her latest case. St. Kilda and Emma are tracking a yacht named Blackbird. Emma knows the boat´s intended cargo is lethal. What she needs to find out is whether it´s biological, chemical, or fissionable. And she´s only got seven days to uncover the truth...or a major American city will be lost. Fortunately, she´s working with a new partner as menacing and distrustful as the worst enemy she´s ever faced—Mackenzie Durand. But Emma and Mac aren´t the only eyes watching Blackbird. Taras Demidov, an expert in extortion and execution in the pay of oligarchs running the Former Soviet Union, is also waiting in the shadows, determined to intercept a fearsomely powerful arms dealer with the money, weaponry, and connections to alter the geopolitical balance. 1.

It’s going to be a right old knee’s up.… The residents of the tough streets around Islington are heartbroken at the death of George the VI but having a young Queen on the throne isn’t the only change that they can expect. The toughest street in London, Campbell Road, is due for demolition. One of the last residents remaining, Matilda Kiever, born and bred on the street, remembers many things about the past, not least what really happened to Christopher Wild’s mum, Pamela. Christopher thought she was dead, but it turns out she is very much alive. But before he can get to the bottom of things, trouble starts to brew on Campbell Road when, after months of tension between Stephen’s building firm and the local Irish Navvies, his father is injured and the finger of blame is squarely pointed at the Irish. Meanwhile, Coronation Day is just around the corner and the street will be having the biggest party it has ever seen. But Christopher is about to get drawn into one hell of a ding dong - and Campbell Road is going to have one last knees up that no one will ever forget. 1. Language: English.

Of all the world´s tech billionaires, none have been lauded for their leadership as much as Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. His style and vision has been a constant example of effective business leadership. Most notably, he has completely changed the way we purchase consumer goods and transformed consumer culture. Jeff Bezos was born Jeff Jorgensen in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1964 to a teenage mother. His father left when he was a toddler and his mother remarried to Cuban immigrant Miguel Bezos, who would later legally adopt young Jeff. His biological father didn´t even know his son was one of the wealthiest people in the world until a reporter found him in 1999. The family eventually ended up in Miami where Jeff graduated valedictorian of his high school. He actually started his first company while in high school, an educational summer camp for teenagers called the Dream Institute. He still had to take ´´normal´´ jobs for high school kids, his first at McDonalds. He took a big interest in space travel, articulating a grand vision of space colonies orbiting Earth in the near future. Jeff called himself a ´´garage inventor,´´ often tinkering with simple household items and inventing things out of them, such as alarms and a solar microwave. Bezos attended Princeton University after high school, where he graduated near the top of his class with degrees in both electrical engineering and computer science. He surprisingly ended up on Wall Street in a few different firms, working in various capacities related to networking infrastructure. He finally ended up in the investment fund D.E. Shaw, climbing his way up to the position of vice president in 1990. At 36, he was the youngest vice president in the history of the firm. He met his wife MacKenzie while working there. During his time at D.E. Shaw, Bezos envisioned a relatively new concept of a mail-o... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Rhodes.

Walter Jurmann - Ein Lied aus meiner Heimat (CD)

Melodien von Walter Jurmann in Originalaufnahmen von 1929-1936 mit Willy Fritsch, Greta Keller, Hans Albers und anderen Walter Jurmann wurde am 12. Oktober 1903 in Wien geboren, und sein aufregender Lebensweg führte von der Stadt der ehemaligen k.u.k. Monarchie in die deutsche Reichshauptstadt, nach Berlin und schließlich über Paris in die USA nach Hollywood. Mediziner hätte er nach dem Wunsch seiner Eltern eigentlich werden sollen, doch seine Neigung zur Musik ließen ihn eine andere Laufbahn einschlagen. Anläßlich eines Sanatoriumsaufenthaltes in dem Österreichischen Luftkurort Semmering vertrieb er sich die Zeit mit musikalischen Improvisationen in der Hotelbar. Diese Spielerei kam bei der Direktion des Hotels so gut an, daß man den jungen Musiker bat, doch weiterzumachen. Man bot ihm einen lukrativen Vertrag, und Walter Jurmann griff freudig zu. Auf diese Weise wurde er das, was man heute ´Alleinunterhalter´ nennt, und als solcher spielte er nicht nur in vornehmen Hotelbars, sondern auch in zahlreichen bekannten Wiener Kabaretts. Hier wurde der bekannte Textdichter Fritz Rotter auf Walter Jurmanns musikalisches Talent aufmerksam. Man freundete sich an, und Jurmann befolgte Rotters Rat, nach Berlin umzuziehen. In der Hauptstadt des Deutschen Reichs schlug auch das Herz der deutschsprachigen Unterhaltungsindustrie. Rundfunk, zahlreiche Schallplattenfirmen, die tagtäglich neue Schlager auf den Markt brachten und der junge Tonfilm all dies war eine große Versuchung und Herausforderung für den jungen talentierten Musiker. So versuchte beispielsweise der holländische Küchenmeister Konzern mit einer neuen Schallplattenmarke den bereits etablierten Firmen Electrola, Odeon und der ´Deutschen Grammophon´ Konkurrenz zu machen. Ihr Motto: ´Ultraphon spiegelt den Ton´ weil die Plattenspieler der Marke ´Ultraphon´ zwei hintereinander installierte Tondosen aufwiesen, die beim Abspielen eine Art ´pseudostereophonischen´ Effekt bewirkten. Bei Küchenmeister versammelten sich junge Talente. Theo Mackeben beispielsweise leitete unter seinem Namen, aber auch unter dem Pseudonym ´Red´ Roberts das Haustanzorchester. Alfred Beres und der bereits erfahrene Julian Fuhs produzierten reihenweise neue Tanzplatten, und auch ein junger rumänischen Sänger namens Joseph Schmidt war bei ´Ultraphon´ unter Vertrag. Herbert Grenzebach, der Repertoirechef, hatte somit eine ganze Reihe erstklassiger Jungtalente unter Vertrag. Zu ihnen gehörte auch Walter Jurmann, der aufgrund seiner angenehmen Tenorstimme seine Schlagerkreationen auch gleich selber singen konnte. Aus diesem Grunde könnnen wir ihnen auf dieser CD eine ganze Reihe heute seltener Aufnahmen präsentieren, bei denen der Komponist Walter Jurmann gleichzeitig auch sein eigener erster Interpret ist. Asach die Filmstudios sicherten sich ehr schnell die Mitarbeit des begabten Jungkomponisten. Zu zahlreichen Filmen wie ´Ihre Majestät die Liebe´, ´Ehe m.b.H.´, ´Melodie der Liebe´ oder ´Ein Lied für Dich´ schrieb Walter Jurmann oftmals in Zusammenarbeit mit seinem Freund Dr. Bronislaw Kaper und Fritz Rotter die Musik. Stars wie Richard Tauber, Jan Kiepura, Dolly Haas, Greta Keller oder Hans Albers sangen die Lieder und nahmen sie auf Schallplatten auf. Was als steile Karriere am Berliner Musikhimmel begann, endete urplötzlich im Jahr 1933, als in einer beispiellosen Aktion viele sogenannte ´nichtarische´ Künstler aus dem Land vertrieben wurden. Jurmann, der die Gefahr ahnte, brach seine Zelte in Berlin ab und ging über Paris nach Hollywood. Dank seiner großen musikalischen Wandlungsfähigkeit gelang es ihm schnell, in der Traumfabrik Fuß zu fassen. Hier schrieb er die Filmmusiken zu zahlreichen großen Produktionen der MGM (MetroGoldwynMayer), darunter ´Mutiny an the Bounty´ (1935 mit Clark Gable und Charles Laughton), ´A Day at the Races´ (1936, mit den MarxBrothers), und auch die Titelmusik zu ´San Francisco´ (1936 mit Clark Gable und Jeanette McDonald) stammt von Walter Jurmann. Diesen Schlager hatten ironischerweise auch zahlreiche Tanzkapellen in Deutschland im Repertoire. rst mehrere Jahre nach dem Zweiten E 1...Weltkrieg kam Walter Jurmann, zusammen mit seiner Frau Yvonne, die er inzwischen in den USA geheiratet hatte, wieder zurück nach Europa. Er war bestürzt über die Zerstörungen, die der Krieg in seiner Heimatstadt Wien angerichtet hatte. Auf der letzten gemeinsamen Europareise im Jahr 1971 starb Walter Jurmann am 17. Juni in Budapest an den Folgen eines Herzinfarkts. Seine Frau Yvonne, die
