His record bests those of legendary investors, including Warren Buffett, George Soros and Ray Dalio. Yet Simons and his strategies are shrouded in mystery. The financial industry has long craved a look inside Simons's secretive hedge fund, Renaissance Technologies and veteran Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman delivers the goods. After a legendary career as a mathematician and a stint breaking Soviet codes, Simons set out to conquer financial markets with a radical approach. Simons hired physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists - most of whom knew little about finance - to amass piles of data and build algorithms hunting for the deeply hidden patterns in global markets. Experts scoffed, but Simons and his colleagues became some of the richest in the world, their strategy of creating mathematical models and crunching data embraced by almost every industry today. As Renaissance became a major player in the financial world, its executives began exerting influence on other areas. Simons became a major force in scientific research, education and Democratic politics, funding Hilary Clinton's presidential campaign. While senior executive Robert Mercer is more responsible than anyone else for the Trump presidency - he placed Steve Bannon in the campaign, funded Trump's victorious 2016 effort and backed alt-right publication Breitbart. Mercer also impacted the success of the Brexit campaign as he made significant investments in Cambridge Anatlytica. For all his prescience, Simons failed to anticipate how Mercer's activity would impact his firm and the world. In this fast-paced narrative, Zuckerman examines how Simons

            Who this book is for: This book is a companion to the author's previous book Learn CS Concepts with Scratch. It is perfect for students who would like to practice the ideas and concepts they have learned in Learn CS ... You will be able to answer a lot of concept review questions... and do a series of interesting programming activities. You will get to apply concepts of computer programming and computer science when you write these programs. Why learn programming: The idea of using computer programming as a medium for learning is rapidly gaining acceptance. The benefits of learning programming and computer science concepts well before college - even in elementary grades - are well-understood. Here is a list of some of the amazing things that happen when children engage in computer programming: - Children become active and creative learners, because they explore ideas through a hands-on activity with an infinitely powerful tool.- They learn to think about and analyze their own thinking, because that is the only way to program computers.- They learn to solve complex problems by breaking them into smaller sub-problems.- They learn a new way of thinking (called computational thinking).- In the world of programming, answers are not simply right or wrong ; this prepares a child's mindset for real-life problems.- Children's learning processes are transformed from acquiring facts to thinking creatively and analytically.How the book is organized: The book is organized exactly along the lines of the original book: as a series of units - each containing a bunch of CS concepts and associated programming activities. Every programming assignment requires understanding of all the concepts presented in the current as well as all preceding un
