Even though many of you might already know a lot about Bill Gates and his contribution to technology, in the next few lines I will try to highlight the philanthropist rather than the magnate. Ever wondered where all that drive to be 1 comes from? Gates was so absorbed by operating systems that he got banned from school for being caught exploiting bugs, then he decided to drop out of Harvard to start his own business.
A Conversation with Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
He thought that if this would prove to be a bad idea, he could always go back to school. He obviously nailed it! Gates is investing a big part of his fortune in making the world a better place for the poor.
He saved over 5 million lives by bringing vaccines and improving children healthcare; throughout his life, he donated half of his current worth; he invested in a foundation that supports many health, social and education developments, and the list goes on. We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering. I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act.

How would I know who was the best? Strabo thought this immunity may have been due to their castration. Pfanz believes they were aware of the local chemical environment. For instance, he thinks the priests would have been careful to avoid getting too close to the gate other than at noon, when the shrine was relatively safe.
His team has found many ancient oil lamps immediately around the gate to hell, suggesting priests may have ventured near it at night despite the dangerous CO 2 levels. Renberg thinks the chemical survey methods used by Pfanz and his team could help provide a firmer idea of the exact location of the gate to hell at a site called Akaraka, also in modern-day Turkey.
