Why Is The U.S. Army Happy About Getting Hacked?

Dealing with Data When You DieGenerally speaking, getting hacked isn't something that people get excited about. On November 30th of last year, the Army teamed up with the Department of Defense's Digital Defense Services group to kick off Hack the Army. They were looking for 500 good men and women who wanted to prove their hacking skills against U.S. Army computer systems. Hack the Army was about the Army "putting their money where our mouth is" and to "augment the incredible work the Army red teams and DDS workforce is already doing to help secure their systems and networks." Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning noted that the Army is getting hacked "every day, all day long" by people who aren't doing it for bug bounties.

Ask Ethan: Is 'Zero Gravity' Really A Thing?

When we see astronauts in space, flying above the Earth's atmosphere, we're told that they experience zero gravity: true weightlessness. So how does zero gravity actually work, and is it a real thing? That's the question bugging Warren Cooper, who asks:I hear of experiments on the ISS being conducted in Zero Gravity, and I hear that studies are done on humans in 'Zero Gravity'. But is 'Zero Gravity' an actual thing? When we say "zero gravity," we don't mean that the force of gravity ceases to exist.

Immigrant Workers on the March

Surprise, surprise, “Never Trumpism” did not last long inside the Beltway. It is no wonder that many of the Americans who voted for Mr. Trump have said that they did so because of the ego-driven, mealy-mouthed hypocrisy that is rampant in Washington insider circles. Particularly in the realm of intelligence and national security, don’t we all need him to succeed? But it is false logic to conclude that any of that will happen if the Republican elite enable or normalize Mr. Trump in any way, particularly by being his sycophants. There is not one national security policy tweeted or bellowed by Mr. Trump that, if put in place, will help this country.

What Corporate Execs May Be Missing That Business Founders Have In Abundance

In 2016If you are a business founder of a private company, what advantage do you have over your cousin who is C-level for a public company? You are probably thinking of a few things that you do better and a few things your cousin does better. As a business founder you know your business, you know about the products, you know how they were created and are made and you relate to your employees and customers on their terms. You, as a business founder, do this by default and it encourages and persuades people to move away from the large public companies and move towards you and your fellow entrepreneurs. There are examples of highly successful giants in industry being led by people who intimately understand the business they are in.

Syfy's Newest Hero Talks About His Role In The Hit Show "The Expanse"

NPR praised The Expanse last year as the best science fiction in a decade for its grasp of physics in a future unlike ours. People often dismiss genres like mystery and science fiction as nothing more than escapist entertainment. No science fiction show of this size and tone had been done on television before, but the prospect of doing something new and ambitious was really exciting to me. And connected to that, does science fiction ask anything from actors as an ensemble that a contemporary drama doesn't? SS: Science fiction and period drama to me are two sides of the same coin.

Who Needs To Lead Digital Transformation In 2017

The question of when digital transformation will be complete is a moot point these days. First, the CMO needs to have a role in Digital Transformation, however, it is the CEO that must lead. Second, I believe in 2017 we need more CIOs and CTOs taking prominent positions in digital transformation. As the digital transformation alters the way companies interact with customers, CMOs have an important voice, and they’ll continue to play a key role as the digital transformation moves forward. While the CMO should still have a voice and a seat at the table, overall leadership of the digital transformation should fall to other C-suite executives in 2017.

Trump returns Churchill bust to the Oval Office

President Trump has returned a bust of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to the Oval Office, which had been removed by his predecessor in 2009. Reporters first noticed that the bust had been placed back in the room on Friday, just as Trump was signing a series of executive orders at the Resolute desk. Obama had moved the bust to the White House residence during his first few days in office and later installed separate busts of Martin Luther King Jr. and President Lincoln in its place. A spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed last week that Trump had personally asked if England would loan the bust of Churchill to the U.S. once he took office.
