After decades of winning the admiration of stock-car racing fans with his aggressive driving strategy and off-track charisma, Rusty Wallace now gives others the chance to experience the rush of racing. He joined forces with Sodikart to roll out the Rusty Wallace Kart Experience, pairing kart with driver at some of the country's most celebrated racetracks. Racers can hop in a custom RT8 (or its kid-friendly counterpart, the LR4) and hit the gas, tearing up everything from the versatile road courses and speedy main track of the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the challenging lava pits of the Milwaukee Mile.
But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars. Guests buckle up and sit shotgun alongside professional drivers as they fly down straightaways and around curves. They can even get behind the wheel themselves, finally feeling what it's like to be a professional driver.
At a moment's notice, contestants from the Emmy-Award-winning show Top Chef appear in Top Chef University members' homes, ready to give one-on-one cooking lessons. Though users will meet stars such as Spike Mendelsohn and Stephanie Izard, they don't have to wipe down the counters or season their neglected cast-iron pans in preparation. That's because the school's 200 lessons are all online videos, streamable to any computer.
Top Chef contestants walk members through a slew of cooking methods in 12 one-month courses, each composed of videos ranging from 5 to 30 minutes long. The easy-to-follow curriculum starts with basic cooking techniques such as sautéing and braising, ending with more advanced recipes for modern and ethnic cuisines from Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais. Each video comes with a printable recipe to save and cherish, along with a Top Chef Certificate of Completion.
The Adobe- and Microsoft-certified instructors at Photo Art Studio prepare pupils for careers in graphic design, web development, and photography during 14-hour certification programs. The digital photography course drills novices in handling and cleaning their cameras, regulating light, and convincing jumping beans to hold still for track-team portraits. During Adobe Photoshop classes, students survey the program's myriad manipulation and touch-up options by applying such flourishes as modified hues and formatted text over their own compositions. Other courses in software such as Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver focus on animation, image design, and web development respectively. The studio also hosts in-depth classes on Microsoft Office software to instill practical administrative skills.
