"He is very rude but also funny, it is a way for me to assess the crowd. "Obviously we want give people what they have paid for, we want to give them a scare but we don't want people to be traumatised. "This is why we have humour, we want it to be enjoyable.

Sputnik: Could you tell in more detail about the Hack Club project? It’s very interesting as it’s a high priority nowadays. Zach Latta: We are an after school program that takes place in high schools, ages 14 to 18. About 20 to 25 students get together every week and learn how to program together. By the end of the first club meeting, every single student has their own website online, and by the end of the year everyone has built dozens of projects using real-world technology and has started to attend regional competitions that happen. We launched 2.5 years ago; we’re currently in 280 schools across 35 states in the United States, which is our main region. We also started our international presence – we’re in almost 20 countries. And we’re also doubling in size every school year. © Sputnik / Kirill KallinikovRosatom Ready to Replicate Smart City Digital … [Read more...] about Zach Latta: If You Want to Make Lot of Money, Find Need People Have, Solve It

You can't keep good people down. That’s the takeaway from Usain Bolt’s decision to hang up his running shoes and don his football boots with Australian club the Central Coast Mariners. He used his 32nd birthday last week to practice with the club for the first time and, in so doing, reinvents himself from an unstoppable force on the track to a have-a-go hero on the field. Reinvention is full of perceived risk. Will he ever attain the same level of mastery as he did among his Olympic peers? Will his attempt to take to something new in a blaze of mediocrity – when there once was brilliance?

Take Kodak for example. Having filed for bankruptcy in 2012, admittedly beaten by the digital revolution, it seems Kodak is finally pivoting and fighting for a comeback.
