Media Makeover: Improving The News One Click at a Time (Kindle Single) (TED Books)
Alisa MillerOn average, many of us spend more than 70 minutes per day consuming news. That’s double the amount of time we spend caring for loved ones. How is it that we know so little about something that is such a big part of our lives? Alisa Miller, CEO of Public Radio International and media and technology leader, urges us to be aware and take control of the news if we want a more accurate picture of the world. "Media Makeover" is an entertaining and informative bird’s eye view of how “news” is made, what is missing from our news diets, why certain types of content are harder to come by, the implications for our society, and perhaps most importantly, what can be done about it. "Media Makeover" is a must-read for anyone who wants to be better informed and to take action: consumers, innovators, technologists, journalists, and media leaders alike.“Alisa Miller shows how we need to take care of our News diet as much as our Food diet - an important book for all who care about how we learn about the world."--Richard Sambrook, Former Director of BBC Global News and Visiting Fellow of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism"TV news is junk, utter wasted, distracting, useless junk. It's not going to get better unless we speak up, and Alisa Miller is doing just that."--Seth Godin, Author of We Are All Weird

From Zero to Sixty on Hedge Funds and Private Equity 2.0: What They Do, How They Do It, and Why They Do The Mysterious Things They Do
Jonathan Stanford YuFrom this book, you will get two things regarding hedge funds and private equity. Two things that anybody can take home. The first is the knowledge - a foundation tool set of key words, industry phrases and financial concepts made clear in plain english. This book puts meanings and understanding to terms you may have already heard but did not quite understand. There is no math and there are no equations. Just interesting stories and detailed explanations to get you familiar with a variety of topics: • How hedge and private equity funds are structured • Who their investors are and what do they want? • Fund investing strategies. Event-driven, arbitrage, sidepockets, and more • Junk bonds, options, swaps, and other derivatives • Leveraged buyouts and other types of private equity investing • NEW AND UPDATED: Venture capital funds and the big changes affecting the venture investing industryThe second thing you get makes this more than just a compilation of Wikipedia articles. Imagine yourself sitting next to a fund or an investor in a fund and observing them do something or make a move. Sure you want to know “what” they did but the stuff that would be truly interesting is the “why”. What is going through their head in doing this? This book walks you through it all so that you get to take in the mindsets, perspectives and incentives of the fund’s managers, investors and more. There is a whole lot more strategy going on than what you might at first think. It does not matter who you are: A student in school thinking about joining the alternative asset management industry, a retiree who wants to know more about these weird fund things, or a person who works with or near a hedge fund but has no idea what they really do. Does not matter. The only thing you need to have is a desire to start learning. If you are familiar with some of it, you can build on it here. If you are beginning from scratch (just as I myself was), you are in good hands.About 2.0: 2.0 builds on the first version of From Zero to Sixty to bring more clarity than ever to the issues surrounding hedge funds and private equity. We dive into insightful charts, read through managers’ investment presentation slides, and sift through SEC filings to immerse you deeper into the world. New stories are begun. Old ones are given that finishing touch. Real life examples. Real life data. Real life documents. Despite the 2.0 moniker and the nice new cover, this book’s goal remains the same: Teach people about hedge funds and private equity and bring them up to speed on a fast-moving and complicated industry. This book is an education, a learning course set up with you in mind. That has not changed. So download a free sample and give it a shot.
