Bob Dylan’s Lost Years: On the Front Cover

Get a first look at the new issue of Rolling Stone 

August 28, 2013  

Bob Dylan 1191 2013 cover
Bob Dylan on the cover of Rolling Stone.
The Estate of David Gahr
Bob Dylan, released in January 1964 :
Come gather ’round people…
…If your time to you is worth savin’   
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Audio slideshow: Bob Dylan at 70

He’s a prolific singer-songwriter, poet and painter – and one of the figureheads for the generation who fought for civil rights and social change in 1960s USA.

Bob Dylan’s 1970 album Self Portrait was so derided upon its initial release that Rolling Stone critic Greil Marcus opened his review with a simple question: “What is this shit?” Now, 43 years later, Rolling Stone is revisiting the time period aroundSelf Portait — and some of Dylan’s most misunderstood music ever — with a cover story by Mikal Gilmore probing why Dylan burned down his career at the peak of his fame to save himself.

Hear Bob Dylan’s Lost 1970 Gem “Pretty Saro”

With the help of Dylan’s new box set Another Self Portrait — which presents raw, unvarnished tapes from the Self Portrait sessions — Gilmore traces Dylan’s creative journey from his motorcycle accident in 1966 through his return to the pop charts in 1973 with “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.”

Focusing on the largely untold story of Self Portrait‘s creation, the cover story features new interviews with Dylan collaborators Al Kooper, David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, David Bromberg and Happy Traum. “I thought it was strange, strange, strange,” says Kooper of Self Portrait, which consists mainly of cover songs. “Why is the Shakespeare of songwriting doing other people’s songs? And why is he doing all these old folk songs? What’s going on?”

Look for the issue on stands and in the iTunes App Store this Friday, August 30th.

In Memoriam of a Visionary and a Legend Steve Jobs

In Memoriam :  Steve Jobs  1955 – 2011

Steve Jobs  Three stories :

#   About Connecting the Dots…  Again, you cannot connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking back…

#   About Love and Loss…  You got to find what you love….

#   About Death…  Death is the destination we all share…  Death is very likely the single best invention of life…  Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition…

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged STANFORD graduates  to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself — at the university’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.

The problem is the social moral and money created out of the blue!   Thin air !?

The only technical solution, that is feasible, is one that will probably never be implemented,  but it is to cut down the debt.

Iceland Exits : It is no longer in crisis. But it’s a long way from a full recovery. PAUL KRUGMAN The Concience of a Liberal

Paul Krugman - New York Times Blog

Iceland is no longer under an IMF program; here’s the IMF report (pdf) pronouncing the adjustment program successful. Indeed. Iceland still has high unemployment and is a long way from a full recovery; but it’s no longer in crisis, it has regained access to international capital markets, and has done all that with its society intact.

And it has done all that with very heterodox policies — debt repudiation, capital controls, and currency depreciation. It was as close as you can get to the polar opposite of the gold standard. And it has worked.

Android the largest smartphone platform in the U.S.

Android No. 1 Smartphone Platform In U.S.


Android leapfrogged BlackBerry in January to become the largest smartphone platform in the U.S., with 31.2% market share, according to the latest comScore data. Android’s three-percentage-point gain from December was combined with a one-percentage-point drop by Research in Motion’s BlackBerry OS to 30.4% to push the Google mobile operating system to the No. 1 spot at the start of 2011.

Apple’s iOS remained the third-most-popular smartphone system, with 24.7% share in January, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform trailed further back at 8%, and Palm at 3.2%. Separatefigures released by Nielsen last week also showed Android pulling into the lead for the first time, but in a tighter race in which the Google OS had 29% market share compared to 27% apiece for iOS and BlackBerry.

In either case, it’s clear that Android is eating into BlackBerry’s share in a big way. In the three months ending in January, Android picked up 7.7 percentage points, while BlackBerry’s portion of the market slipped 5.4 percentage points.

Among handset makers, Samsung remained the top company, with almost 25% market share compared to 20.8% share for LG and 16.5% for Motorola. Rounding out the top were RIM (8.6%) and Apple (7%). Overall, 234 million Americans 13 and older used mobile devices in January, according to comScore.

When it comes to usage, text messaging was by far the most common type of non-voice activity, with 68.1% of mobile subscribers texting — the same proportion as at the end of October. Among other kinds of mobile data usage, downloading apps has seen the biggest gain over the three months ending in January, with a 1.6 percentage-point gain to 35.3%.

That still left downloads third, behind texting and Web browsing (37%), but ahead of social networking (25.3%), playing video games (23.7%) and listening to music (16.5%).

Richard Branson on the Power of Your People

By Richard Branson |   January 4, 2011
Richard Branson: Innovation
The celebrated entrepreneur shares his five  best tips for business success.

The people factor appears over and over on my list of top five tips. It is the basis of many entrepreneurial successes and, because many business leaders discount it, innumerable failures. While the current thinking in business schools holds that all someone with an idea needs to succeed are focus, clarity and a good business plan, I have found that bringing together a great team that’s united by strong motivation, determination and bravery is much more important. Here’s how to get started.

No. 1: Find good people.

The successes of Virgin businesses such as Active, Atlantic, Money and Mobile were all based on our assembling a great management team that had a vision, passion and a real sense of ownership. We look for leaders with the ability to listen to feedback from employees and customers — this is crucial to keeping a service or product fresh and innovative. Often, when things start going wrong, you’ll notice the staff members feel ignored and good ideas are not bubbling to the top. Leaders should have the character to make tough decisions and the passion and ability to inspire their staff and carry them through difficult times. Our best CEOs tend to be unconcerned about the size of their office or the thickness of the carpet.

No. 2: Realize that the employees are the business.

A successful business isn’t the product or service it sells, its supply chain or its corporate culture: It is a group of people bound together by a common purpose and vision. In Virgin’s case, we fly the same planes as our competitors and our gyms offer much of the same equipment as other gyms. What separates our businesses from the competition? Our employees. The best designed business plan will come to nothing if it is not carried out by an enthusiastic and passionate staff. This is especially true when things go slightly wrong; a friendly and proactive team can often win people round, averting a potential disaster or even turning it to your benefit.

No. 3: Always look for the best in your people. Lavish praise, never criticize.

Rather than focusing on mistakes, a leader needs to catch someone doing something right every day. If this culture of fostering employee development through praise and recognition starts at the top, it will go far toward stamping out the employee fear of failure that can stunt a business, particularly in its early days. When mistakes happen — which is inevitable — I always take the position that you have to learn from them, not dwell on what went wrong. It’s almost always better not to go over the obvious with the people involved. They know exactly what happened.

No. 4: Don’t take yourself too seriously.

We at Virgin pride ourselves on finding the fun in our businesses. We try to ensure our staff and customers feel a sense of warmth and affection. I have led from the front on this — dressing up in costumes, trying all manner of stunts (not all going 100 percent right!), and generally showing that I do not take myself too seriously. My approach will not work for all businesses, but keeping a sense of perspective and not allowing management to be seen as aloof will help keep your staff onside. To foster a personal interest in clients’ needs, it’s crucial to ensure employees enjoy what they’re doing. Everyone must be proud of the company. This is vital to building lasting success and ensuring an edge over the competition. To find employees who will take such an interest in our customers, we look for people who show genuine enthusiasm and character.

No. 5: Just do it.

Finally, you must have the bravery to give it a go. Starting a business is a big risk; an entrepreneur needs resolve and conviction to overcome the early hurdles. Most start-ups fail in the first few years, so a key ingredient of success is the ability to pick yourself up and try again.

If it starts to look like your business is not going to make it, some on your team might start to lose courage. At that crucial time, your knowledge of the people factor may make or break your company.

Richard Branson on Taking Chances

Richard Branson: Innovation

By Richard Branson |   December 27, 2010

The celebrated entrepreneur shares his advice on following your dreams and why he always challenges conventional wisdom.

Editor’s Note: Entrepreneur Richard Branson regularly shares his business experience and advice with readers. What follows is the latest edited round of insightful responses. Ask him a question and your query might be the inspiration for a future column.

Australians are a natural market for all things Virgin. They share the sense of fun and the entrepreneurial spirit that motivates my companies. Maybe that’s why I get a lot of questions from Down Under. Here are some recent ones.

Q: I don’t have enough confidence to give up my career in banking and follow my dream of starting a business as a personal trainer. Should I continue with banking since I am still somewhat enjoying it? ~ Leon Belobrov, Australia

A: When you decide to pursue an entrepreneurial venture, you have to confront your doubts and fears; sometimes you just have to go for it. Many times I have hesitated before launching a new venture or investment, even after my team and I have vetted it and we’re ready to go ahead. I’m lucky that I have a great network of friends and advisers to take soundings from.

If you believe that your personal training business can succeed, draw up a short plan describing how it would be different from other such businesses, how you would build it up and attract customers. Discuss this plan with trusted friends or advisers (make sure you ask people individually, and not as a group). Collecting and acting on this feedback is a crucial step before launching any business.

I can’t help you make this decision without knowing more about your situation. However, I can tell you that when I have to decide whether or not to go ahead with a new venture, I have often found that intuition is my best guide. What does your intuition tell you? If you decide to go ahead, be prepared for a bumpy ride. Most entrepreneurs fail the first time they enter a market – or at the very least have to recover from a tricky scrape.

Q. Do you believe a company’s purpose – why employees do what they do – is more or less important than the way they do it? ~ Bec Kennedy, Australia

A: I have long felt that a business cannot simply work if no care and attention is paid to its staff, customers and environment. It may bring in money for a short while, but I doubt it will be sustainable. Being efficient, effective and profitable are important goals for any company. But doing business in a responsible and fair way is just as important, if not more so, in the long run. This is what will engage and motivate your employees to be more effective and deliver better service, which in turn will encourage customers to come back and spend money with you. This virtuous circle will continuously improve your business.

Q: What one piece of invaluable, golden advice could you offer a 27-year-old aspiring businessman? ~ Drue Schofield, Brisbane, Australia

A: Follow your heart; do something you are really passionate about. The Virgin businesses that have done well over the years have always been the ones where we came up with an idea that everyone in the company really cared about and was committed to. The sales figures usually proved our point later.

Q: Virgin Atlantic provides a great example of how technical operations staff in their behind-the-scenes role can work with employees on the front lines serving customers. What’s the best way to ensure alignment of such diverse roles and responsibilities? ~ Anne Wilson, Australia

A: I have always challenged the accepted wisdoms of any industry we have gone into, and we try to encourage our CEOs and staff to do so as well – especially, to see things from the customer’s perspective. You can see this in the touches that differentiate our airline – the limos to the airport, the lounge at the airport, even the ice cream we offer customers when they are watching movies. A lot of these ideas bubble up from within because we ask our senior team, marketing people, engineers and, most importantly, the cabin crew to contribute ideas and help keep our service fresh and innovative.

Netkaup eru stunduð í viðskiptalegum tilgangi á rafrænan hátt ýmist gegn gjaldi eða með rafrænni færslu án endurgjalds.  Hugtakið netkaup í íslensku máli er táknrænt fyrir ákveðna aðgerð og um leið lýsandi fyrir hin nýju tækifæri samtímans.

Aukin áhrif netkaupa birtast í sífellt vaxandi fjölda viðskipta og tilboða á  netinu.  Fyrirtæki bjóða margs konar vörur og þjónustu með rafrænum og gagnvirkum  hætti.  Einstaklingar nýta sér ný tækifæri netsins með auknum samskiptum innbyrðis.

Þróun í verslun og viðskiptum á internetinu hefur verið hröð.  Rafrænar vörur og netkaup hafa rutt brautina og skapað rekstrargrundvöll margs konar tækninýjunga og nýsköpunar.

Netræn (nútíma) samskipti byggjast  á rafrænum tölvusamskiptum og/eða  nýjustu farsímatækni.

Netkaup skapa framfarir og breytingar á ýmsum sviðum. Ýmsar opinberar stofnanir efla samkeppni  í reksti og  auka hagkvæmni með netkaupum.
