by Kate Wilhelm

Now the two faced each other in the icy reaches of the galaxy. The robot, with its calculating machine of a brain, its impenetrable force shield, its deadly laser beam. The man, with the kind of nerve that refused to admit the Odds against survival..."

Dumb Like Me, Olivia Potts

by Lila Perl

[From the back cover:] Olivia's sister Meredith was editor of the high school literary magazine, her brother Greg had just started at Yale on a scholarship, and her mother was enrolled at the local community college. But Olivia didn't even like school. "You're just going to have to learn," she hissed in an imaginary conversation with her fifth-grade teacher, "that some of us are dumb. Dumb like me, Olivia Potts." Then Olivia made friends with a new girl, Anita Brunelli, who didn't seem all that brainy either, but who was good at figures. It was Anita who helped Olivia see the connection between her father's stolen license plates and the strange things Olivia had seen going on one afternoon in the backyard next door. But it was Olivia herself who discovered, in the scariest possible way, who was behind the thefts in the neighborhood. And Olivia, the detective, discovers that perhaps she isn't as stupid as she thought she was. Reading level 5.5, Ages 10-14

YOJANA NOVEMBER 2017

by Publication Division Goi

Building a strong industrial sector is always on top of the agenda for policy makers and those governing the country.

This is the micro, medium and small industries sector.

Darby's Investment in Sirma: Professionalizing an Entrepreneurial Firm (A)

by Suraj Srinivasan Eren Kuzucu

In March 2010, Burak Dalg n (HBS MBA 2004) led private equity firm Darby's investment in S rma, a local Turkish water and beverage company. S rma was owned and managed by members of two Turkish business families. The existing management, while being highly entrepreneurial, had paid less attention to managing the company in a professional manner, leading to a highly leveraged balance sheet and a significant need for financing. After the investment, S rma introduced new products, opened a new factory, and built up its financial reporting system from scratch. Two years after Darby's investment, S rma's operational performance had improved. However, the company was still suffering from significant financial problems. By early 2013, although S rma had received two cash injections from Darby, the company still required another round of financing. Dalg n was looking at three potential options: Should Darby make another investment in S rma? If Darby stayed invested in S rma, should it replace its managing partners? If Dalg n advised Darby to exit, would that be a premature move?
