    Many of the most dynamic public companies, from Alibaba to Facebook to Visa, and the most valuable start-ups, such as Airbnb and Uber, are matchmakers that connect one group of customers with another group of customers. Economists call matchmakers multisided platforms because they provide physical or virtual platforms for multiple groups to get together. Dating sites connect people with potential matches, for example, and ride-sharing apps do the same for drivers and riders.

    Economists developed the theory of network effects in the 1970s and burnished it in the 1990s, and business gurus, entrepreneurs, and the tech media enshrined it as one of the guiding lights of the new economy. It works like this: a company quickly enters a new market and attracts customers, and those customers attract more customers, and so on.

    It's the end of work as we know it. Career paths look nothing like they did in the days before phones got smart. We work more hours at more jobs for more years than ever. So it's vital that we know how to find work that allows us to remain true to our deepest sense of who we are and that connects us to something larger than ourselves - in short, our "calling". We all have one, and best-selling authors Richard Leider and David Shapiro can help you uncover it.

    At the outbreak of the Second World War D. M. Crook, of No. 609 Squadron AAF, was at Yeadon, still undergoing his training; by the winter of 1939-40, he had his wings. Successfully applying to return to his Squadron, then on defense duties in northern England, Crook began to familiarize himself with their new fighter: the Spitfire. Soon they were posted to RAF Northolt, and it was at this time that Crook, much to his chagrin, was left grounded, undergoing knee surgery as they flew over Dunkirk.

    For decades, government pundits have dismissed these "coincidental" deaths, even regarding them as "myths" as "urban legends." Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these 'coincidences'. After all, events don't "consult the odds" prior to happening; they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents.

    In the summer of 2006, David Fraser was the Canadian general in charge of NATO's Regional Command South, a territory spanning six Afghan provinces surrounding the Arghandab Valley. Birthplace of the Taliban decades earlier, this fertile region had since become Afghanistan's most deadly turf. It would soon turn deadlier still. Advised in the night by his intelligence officers that the Taliban had secretly amassed for a full-scale military assault, Fraser knew it would fall to him, his Canadians and their allies to avoid the wholesale slaughter of NATO troops.

    Dass unsere Welt sich gegenwärtig rasant verändert, weiß inzwischen jeder. Doch wie reagieren wir darauf? Die einen feiern die digitale Zukunft mit erschreckender Naivität und erwarten die Veränderungen wie das Wetter. Die Politik scheint den großen Umbruch nicht ernst zu nehmen. Andere warnen vor der Diktatur der Digitalkonzerne aus dem Silicon Valley. Und wieder andere möchten am liebsten die Decke über den Kopf ziehen und zurück in die Vergangenheit. Richard David Precht skizziert dagegen das Bild einer wünschenswerten Zukunft im digitalen Zeitalter.

    Over a decade has passed since the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001, and yet there are still many unanswered questions surrounding that fateful day, which changed a nation forever. Conspiracy theories attribute the planning and execution of the attacks to two parties other than Al-Qaeda and claim there was advance knowledge of the attacks amongst high-level government and military officials.

She trusts no one outside her family. Spanning generations, River of the Brokenhearted explores the life of this formidable woman, a pioneer before the age of feminism, and her legacy as it unfolds tragically in the lives of her son and grandchildren.

    Dave Richards, an alum of Yale, sheds some light on the lesser known stories of Yale's secret societies. He takes us through the history from Phi Beta Kappa in the American Revolution (originally a social and drinking society) through Skull and Bones and its rivals in the 19th and 20th centuries. While there have been articles and books on some of those societies, there has never been a scholarly history of the system as a whole.
