June 24, 2017: NIA Creative, Inc.: Here's a terrifying ranking of every single Stephen King novella

NEWS BITES - PRIVATE COMPANIES

In publishing terms, the form is a tricky one: often too short to stand alone but too long to include in a short story collection, books in the 20,000-40,000 word range can sometimes hang in a kind of literary no man's land. It's tricky to make them work.

Stephen King's found a way, though. Sprinkled throughout the horror master's glorious 50-year career, nestled alongside his series, short story roundups and 400,000+ word epics, King has published a number of successful four-story novella collections.

And as a troublingly obsessed Stephen King fan, let me tell you this: they're well worth checking out. I sometimes think King's at his best when he's writing either very short, or very long novels. Some of the stories towards the end of this list are among my all-time favourites of his.

From time-swallowing monster to nightmarish, life-or-death competitions, here are all of King's novellas - ranked from worst to best (or, in other words, from good to ridiculously good).

June 22, 2017: NIA Creative, Inc.: Many Uber users wanted Travis Kalanick to resign, survey says

Uber's toxic, crumbling corporate culture is making waves outside the tech world.

Uber users are keeping track of everything that's been happening at Uber's San Francisco headquarters, and it's affecting how they see the company-and whether they'll use the ride-hailing app.

According research by the media and technology firm Morning Consult, 57 percent of Uber users had heard a lot or some about "claims of bullying, sexism, and sexual harassment at Uber headquarters."

Morning Consult surveyed 1,652 Uber users from June 15 to 21-in the middle of Uber's most recent scandals, but right before Travis Kalanick resigned from his position as CEO.

June 19, 2017: NIA Creative, Inc.: The Future is Giants Pretending to Be Small

Anheiser Busch In-Bev is a Belgian company that owns amongst other things Budweiser. Beer drinkers fall into two categories in general: those who love Bud and Coors and all those "lite" beers, and people who like craft beers. I'll get back to that in a second. The most recent ad campaign on TV for Budweiser is pointing out as loudly as it can, "We brew this stuff in America!" The subtext: it's "local" even though a Belgian company owns it and reaps the profits. But let's go on a moment.
