Revisiting Buena Vista's Ibrahim Ferrer

A set of albums created by accident and that "re-created" a mythical ensemble that never existed in the first place nevertheless made stars of some deserving musicians and opened up new audiences to the rich musical heritage of Cuba. This re-release is another opportunity to revisit music that never fully got its due in America and is worth seeking out.Keep Reading

Cuba's Ibrahim Ferrer Is Celebrated with a Re-Issue of 'Buenos Hermano'

It's hard to say why the missing tracks - "Me Voy Pa Sibanicú", "Ojos Malvados", "Mujer", and "Ven Conmigo Guajira" - were left off of the original mix; Cooder calls them "overlooked for some reason". Perhaps it was for length. Perhaps it was for ease of production. It certainly was not for lack of fit or quality. Here, those tracks are interwoven carefully into the sequence, extending the vision in beautiful ways. Slow track "Mujer" is particularly beautiful, with a sparse guitar introduction...

SoftBank's $100 billion Vision Fund had a no good, very bad year in 2019, but was still in the black overall. Here's why experts are still struggling to make sense of it.

SoftBank's Vision Fund had a terrible year last year, thanks in large part to the collapse of WeWork. To a large degree, though, its overall performance since it was established in 2017 is in the eye of the beholder. Despite last year, the fund was in the black overall at the end of last year, and its performance has improved since then. But its returns to date have been subpar for the venture industry, and the struggles of WeWork and many of its other investments are a worrying sign, venture ...

Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and the rabbit-duck illusion: SoftBank's CEO used the famous image to rebrand as an investor

SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son wants the Japanese conglomerate to be seen as an investment company, not an operating one.

As a top manager leaves amid fundraising woes, SoftBank’s vision looks dimmer — and schadenfreude abounds

Every once in a while, an organization implodes so fantastically that it’s hard in retrospect to understand why another outcome once seemed possible. With every passing day, SoftBank — which shook up the investing world with the largest investment fund ever pooled, and then seemed to use its capital as a weapon — looks to become one such spectacular failure. The very newest development centers on the departure of Michael Ronen, a former Goldman Sachs banker who joined SoftBank in 2017 and ...

Uniqlo founder Tadashi Yanai is stepping down from SoftBank's board after 18 years.

The last interview Adam Neumann gave as CEO of WeWork details the now-controversial working relationship with Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son

Business Insider interviewed WeWork cofounder Adam Neumann in May, during what would become his last press round as CEO. At the time, there were signs WeWork's path to profitability was dubious, but there was an excitement for an upcoming IPO, set to be the biggest of the year. The coworking space company's parent, The We Company, had a valuation at the time of $47 billion, and a $10 billion investment from the Japanese firm SoftBank. After a disastrous response to its IPO prospectus, disinter...

SoftBank's $100 billion Vision Fund has made huge investments in startups like WeWork,, Zume, and Fair. For all the differences in industry and business models, several of these Silicon Valley startups share the common thread of eccentric founders with outsized personalities and unorthodox management styles.  Like WeWork's Adam Neumann, some of these founders are great "storytellers," capable of inspiring employees to go all in on noble missions.

No One Was Happier Than Jesus

In his book Abundant Living, E. Stanley Jones observed, “The early Christians did not say in dismay, ‘look what the world has come to,’ but in delight, ‘look what has come into the world.’” What has come is Jesus Christ. Through the miracle of his incarnation, he made God visible to us: “No one has ever seen God. The one and only Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’s side — he has revealed him” (John 1:18, CSB). Yet God’s Son did not merely bring the grace, justice, peace, love, an...

My Rope out of the Pit: The Word I Needed in My Worst Days

I discovered the power of God’s word in the pit of despair. When I was abandoned by my former spouse, I fell headlong into the pit. It was as if I had been caught up in a whirlwind — one that picked me up from my happy, secure life and threw me into a dark well. For days, I sat there, alone, wondering if I had the strength to go on — or if I even wanted to. There was no light; everything in front of me was so black I couldn’t see. I couldn’t imagine living like this forever. I gave up on t...

Watch as SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son appears to doze off onstage

SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son spoke on a panel this week at a global investment conference in Saudi Arabia dubbed "Davos in the desert."

It's been an incredibly chaotic few months for Son and SoftBank, who led the charge to remove WeWork CEO Adam Neumann and recently took control of the embattled office-rental ...
