In the cover story, ´´Forbes Picks 5 All-Star Charities, with Top Rankings for Efficient Groups” – Who deserves your charitable dollars? To help you decide, we’ve picked five all-stars–charities that are reasonably efficient (compared to their peers) and do fine work in their areas. Also, ´´Hollywood´s Secret Weapon to Combat Piracy in China” – Not long ago China was mostly a source of frustration for Hollywood. Now, thanks to Dan Mintz and DMG, the Dynamic Marketing Group, there´s a new sheriff in town. Next, ´´Newly-Minted Billionaire Is Spinning eBay Scraps Into Gold” – Michael Rubin has an uncanny eye for undervalued assets. Using his lifelong talent, the 40 year-old has turned himself into a billionaire. We´ll also tell you ´´Why Spinoff Stocks Are Sizzling (And Should Stay Hot)” – For investors looking for alternatives to initial public offerings, which are nearly impossible to get, unpredictable and often disappointing, corporate spinoffs offer a smart and profitable opportunity. Then, ´´How Robots are Making Solar Power Cheaper” – Startups like QBotix exploit advances in sensor technology and automation to dramatically cut solar power plant costs. Followed by, ´´After a Decade of Debacles, Auto Parts Supplier Dana Is Back in Gear” – Written off for dead after going bankrupt in 2006, and then racking up another $1.1 billion in losses after emerging into the teeth of the recession in 2008, Dana is, impossibly, back and on a roll. And in our final story, ´´Liquid Assets: Is Scotch the New Wine?” = Macallan has a plan to elevate ´´investment grade scotch,´´ to the same lofty plane as high-end art and wine.
