Thomas J. Watson, IBM and Nazi Germany

by Geoffrey G. Jones Adrian Brown

Considers the strategy of U.S.-owned IBM, then a manufacturer of punch cards, in Nazi Germany before 1937. Opens with IBM CEO Thomas J. Watson meeting Adolf Hitler in his capacity as President of the International Chamber of Commerce. IBM had acquired a German company in 1922, and like other American companies, found itself operating after 1933 in a country whose government violently suppressed political dissent and engaged in intimidation and discrimination against Jews. Explores the tensions between IBM's German affiliate and its parent, and provides an opportunity to explore the options and responsibilities of multinationals with investments in politically reprehensible regimes.

Financing Anghami's Growth

by Ramana Nanda Eren Kuzucu

In December 2012, less than two years into the founding of their music-streaming platform Anghami, cofounders Elie Habib and Eddy Maroun found themselves evaluating an unorthodox term sheet. Habib and Maroun needed to make a decision vis- -vis the proposal put forth by the MBC Group, the region's largest media network. The offer was a media-for-equity deal, which would provide Anghami with advertising towards the media giant's millions of viewers and boost its chances of competing with the likes of iTunes and Spotify in the Middle Eastern market. However, the deal would also cost the cofounders a significant share of their company, and might place them in the middle of a rivalry between MBC and Rotana, the region's largest music label. The case takes the reader through the co-founders' journey, from the founding of the company to the successes and challenges they have faced navigating product launch, scale-up, and partnerships.

DraftKings and the Future of Fantasy Sports

by Robert F. Higgins Julia Kelley

Founded in 2012, DraftKings helped change the fantasy sports landscape by popularizing daily fantasy sports (DFS), or short-term fantasy sports tournaments that offered big cash prizes to winners. The company's valuation exceeded $1 billion by 2015, but DraftKings soon faced intense scrutiny from government agencies about whether its business model violated federal laws preventing sports betting and online gambling. Then, in May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a federal law that had prohibited states from legalizing sports betting. Now that states could legalize sports betting, what should DraftKings' next steps be?

Lest Earth Be Conquered

by Frank Belknap Long

The primitives--anthropologists tell us that primitive man believed he could be in several places at the same time. He had no sense of time as we understand it, and could think of himself as living in the past and present simultaneously. And the future...? He was convinced, too, that he could at the same time be a human being and an animal; space and time held no restrictions for him. And the future...? Suppose it weren't just a primitive fantasy, suppose such powers were slumbering in some people and could be awakened. The future is now... especially for a young boy in a small midwestern town that has somehow aquired the idea that the entire Earth is in danger--from the new neighbors down the street.

Peace Comes to Castle Oak

by Jane Annixter Paul Annixter

A crow, a 'coon, a fox, a dog are most of young Colin's life and soon the problems that his family and other adults are facing become part of it too. For his sister wants to become a nurse, his brother returns from the war very much apart from the swamp and woods world he has known, and Colin's father has to fight against his sister's victimization when she is widowed and his own trigger fast temper. Colin is helped by Nat Stemline, a buckskin hero who lives off the woods, and by his own ability to take care of himself, while his father, protecting his older children, finds that he can control his instinct to kill when too hard pressed and bring peace, as do the 'coon and the fox, to the great tree, Castle Oak. A ""whole boiling"" of southern lore surrounds an intermeshed family story which touches on violence but which resolves its conflicts with peace -- and pride. Homegrown dialect, customs and inherited ways keep this local in feeling and form, and a deep knowledge of the outdoor world and the humans who have learned its secrets gives it a special attraction.
