How to sharpen your business and law skill sets
by Stephen M. Stern, executive editor

From be-bop to pop, from rap to classical and everything in between, musicians go to the beat of a different drummer; however, they all seemingly share the DNA strand of entrepreneurship. The classical definition of entrepreneurship is one who innovates or introduces new ideas into the marketplace in an effort to transform them into economic goods. This is what musicians do daily — consciously or subconsciously!

Patented intellectual property stamp While the ideal entrepreneurial mindset is truly innate, the required skillset is learned, either through some fancy B-school with ivy vines and a name in a classic serif font as an afterthought at a music college or through the School of Hard Knocks.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice?
