Modern Monopolies: What It Takes to Dominate the
What do Google, Snapchat, Tinder, Amazon, and Uber have in common, besides soaring market share? They're platforms - a new business model that has quietly become the only game in town, creating vast fortunes for its founders while dominating everyone's daily life. A platform, by definition, creates value by facilitating an exchange between two or more interdependent groups. So, rather that making things, they simply connect people.The Internet today is awash in platforms - Facebook is responsible for nearly 25 percent of total Web visits, and the Google platform crash in 2013 took about 40 percent of Internet traffic with it. Representing the ten most trafficked sites in the U.S., platforms are also prominent over the globe; in China, they hold the top eight spots in web traffic rankings.The advent of mobile computing and its ubiquitous connectivity have forever altered how we interact with each other, melding the digital and physical worlds and blurring distinctions between "offline" and "online." These platform giants are expanding their influence from the digital world to the whole economy. Yet, few people truly grasp the radical structural shifts of the last ten years.

2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl [Blu-ray + DVD]
2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl [Blu-ray +
In only his second college start, quarterback Cardale Jones turned in a spectacular performance as the fourth-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes erased a 21-6 deficit to defeat top-seeded Alabama 42-35 in the national semi-final 2015 Sugar Bowl game in New Orleans. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Jones, who passed for 243 yards and a touchdown and ran for 43 yards, had only recently been pressed into action after Ohio State lost quarterbacks Braxton Miller and J. T. Barrett to injuries. Offensively, he was helped by running back Ezekiel Elliott, who carried the ball 20 times for 230 yards, including two touchdowns. For his performance, Elliott earned the award as the most outstanding offensive player. Urban Meyer, in his third season with the Buckeyes, knew his team could play with the best the SEC had to offer. Maybe the Big Ten is not that bad, said Meyer. Ohio State's stunning victory set the stage for their National Championship match against the Oregon Ducks. The 2015 Sugar Bowl includes the commercial-free game broadcast as well as the trophy presentation. It is a great addition to any fan's collection!

Farrenc: Piano Quintets
Louise Farrenc (1804-75) not only achieved the near impossible of getting her music published in 19th c. France but was awarded a piano professorship at the Paris Conservatoire. Compositions for piano formed a part of her oeuvre, alongside works for chamber ensemble and orchestra. These pieces gradually fell from the repertoire and only began to be revisited quite recently. Her two quintets are performed by acclaimed ensemble Quintetto Bottesini, founded in 2006 with the intent of rediscovering rarely performed musical repertoire for violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano.
