Co+Hoots Foundation has started Co+Exchanges as an entrepreneur and co-worker exchange program and welcomed its first co+exchanger this week.

The foundation is celebrating Pro Bono Week this week, Oct. 20-25, with its first co+exchanger Matthew Manos, founder and managing partner of verynice, a global design and innovation consultancy that dedicates over 50 percent of its efforts toward free services for non-profit organizations.

Manos gave a presentation Wednesday at Co+Hoots on “How to give away half of your work for free.” He was named as one of “Seven millennials changing the world” by the Huffington Post.

“While at Co+Hoots, I had the incredible opportunity to see firsthand the potential of downtown Phoenix, and the passion that local entrepreneurs have in exemplifying what ‘community’ means for this fast growing start-up economy,” Manos said in an email. “The most rewarding part of my time in Phoenix was walking away knowing that several Co+Hoots members are now launching their own pro-bono initiatives inspired by verynice’s #GiveHalf business model.”

The Co+Exchange program was launched in Catania, Italy, in September, one of Phoenix’s sister cities.

The goal is to provide local entrepreneurs an opportunity to grow and build global connections, and bring entrepreneurs from around the globe to Phoenix to show them how Co+Hoots does things, said Co+Hoots Foundation co-founder and executive director Kristin Romaine.

“Phoenix is doing so much it’s a great opportunity for them to come here and see what it’s like,” Romaine said. “Our ultimate goal is to bring the most powerful innovators together to co-change the world.”

Regal Cinemas

As a result of the case, studios had to divest themselves of their theater chains. Now, more than 65 years later, the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division is reportedly investigating “clearance” pacts between studios and theater chains that carve out exclusivity on first-run films in certain geographical regions. Today’s question: Is the practice really illegal?

Jim Thorpe’s Remains Will Remain in Jim Thorpe: Court

Jim Thorpe was probably one of the best American athletes of the 20th century: He won Olympic gold medals in 1912 for both pentathlon and decathlon, and he played football, basketball, and baseball (did Bo know all that?). His sports career ended about when the Great Depression started, and he had trouble finding work. He became an alcoholic and died intestate (without a will) in 1953.

So why is it that, 61 years later, Thorpe’s children and a Pennsylvania town that Thorpe had never been to are fighting over his remains in federal court?
