Spotify aims to strike chord in stock market debut

Spotify on Tuesday debuts as a publicly traded company, hoping that its streaming music model will be a hit with investors and a boon to artists.

Why did the award-winning filmmaker temporarily stop doing postproduction work on his new movie, "Ready Player One," to make "The Post"? Steven felt that the true story in the '70s of how then President Richard Nixon attempted to gag Washington Post and The New York Times reporters strikes a chord in this Trump era when journalists are standing up to an adversarial presidency. With amazing speed, Steven was able to assemble topnotch tal...Keep on reading: Spielberg explains why he rushed to make Streep-Hanks starrer.....»»
