I read the article YOU (originally) posted, bud.

[www.cnbc.com]

it said nothing about this donation...

in the time it took you to insult me by implicitly calling me "uneducated" you could've just posted the follow-up article and said "he gave $100m according to this article" and skipped the insult...

whatever....

Follow up Comments:

With all Sincerity: $100m is a very nice donation. Thank you, Bill. Good start. Keep it up....exponentially, please.

However, just to put it in perspective:

a) this donation is from his Foundation...not his pocket...there's a difference (though he does fund about 1/2 to 2/3 of the Foundation)

b) Bill Gates is worth around $100 BILLION...which is more than 122 COUNTRIES are worth....it's the GDP of Slovakia

in other words, money is essentially NO object to him...

Perspective: if you spent $1 PER SECOND....it would take you 32 YEARS to spend ONE Billion.

As stated: It's a nice donation...thank you for educating me w/ the follow-up article.

I'm glad he gives...something is always better than nothing....but, it should be taken in perspective.

Simply put, Bill can (and should) do more. Full stop.

good luck to you. I hope you are healthy and safe.

Posted both prior. His foundations work, his philanthropy, and his commitment to giving away the bulk of his wealth before he dies are well known. By most.
Glad you got caught up.. he's been actively funding and working on health issues for twenty years.

More here, in which he essentially predicted this.
[www.mercurynews.com]

"Although he began his career as a computer programmer, Gates, 64, has devoted much of the last 20 years to public health and medicine.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, based in Seattle, is run by three trustees: Bill and his wife Melinda Gates, and financier Warren Buffett. Since it was established 20 years ago, the foundation has contributed more than $6 billion to medical research and health care, focusing on treatment and prevention of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, measles and other diseases, particularly in Africa and some of the poorest parts of the world.

On Feb. 5, the foundation announced a $100 million donation to fund research and development of drugs and other treatments for COVID-19.

There are people in the world that are never happy. Bill Gates isn't doing enough.

What a load of bullshit that is. And YOU are doing what, exactly? Staying inside?

Athletes, musicians and actors should keep their mouths shut? Perhaps just regular ol' people should, too. Seeing that athletes, musician and actors are people...

I know someone that's denying things about it, and supports an orange mop's denial and lies about it, that is 72 years old and considers it nothing worse than the flu and, really, nothing like the flu at all.

The willful ignorance and arrogance, typical American, of course, blows my mind.

ahh..the old "what are you doing?" message.

Thank you for asking....here's a list:

1) staying inside...yep....which is, of course, one of the most important things one can do....though, I do go to the grocery store for myself and my 90-year-old neighbor who lives alone

2) I gave blood last week....granted that was scheduled months ago.

3) I cashed out a CD about 10 days ago...it was worth 1% of my total net worth and I donated it to Doctors without Borders (Gates' donation is worth 0.01% of his net worth, by comparison...and money means nothing to him...I'm a school teacher...proportionality)

4) I give 5% of my pre-tax salary to charity every year

5) We're adopting a cat...shelters are inundated...so, the local shelter is dropping it off tomorrow (at the end of my driveway, per social-distancing)....to add to our 3 other shelter cats and 3 shelter dogs.

Bill Gates does a lot. Good for him. He can do more. Are you claiming that as false??

Are you fully content w/ what he is doing? If so, that's fine...but, then you must be content w/ the inequities of the world and the fact that one person is worth more than Slovakia...while billions go without.

As stated, he does a lot of good....but he also chooses to keep $100 billion for himself.

If you're cool w/ that, so be it. It's a semi-free country and you're entitled to your position...just as I am.

"Athletes et. al should keep their mouths shut....if they are not giving money"...you forgot the 2nd half of that....try not to intentionally misquote to prove a point.

and...yep, feel free to add "regular people" to that, if you wish...if you aren't doing anything to help, you should shut up...same w/ people that don't vote.

....that goes for grumping about Trump as well, FYI.

Bill Gates can/should do more. Everyone who is capable can/should do more...I'm fully aware that includes me. So, I'll think of something. I'm very, very, very lucky.

I'll keep you posted.

I have no idea if the "ignorant and arrogant" is aimed at me or Trump or some random 72-year-old...or all three, so I'll just let that part lay.

feel free to share your list of things you are doing.

In fact, everybody should....it would give us a sense of hope and great ideas moving forward....things we can all do.

I hope you and yours are healthy and safe.

[donate.doctorswithoutborders.org]

For one thing, I vote and I know voting for POTUS is the only vote that does not count. So that whole 'if you don't vote shut your mouth' thing is bunk, an antiquated, archaic mentality based in belief, or fiction, or perhaps a bit more pointed, flag waving.

It wasn't a point at you but it was a reminder, a good example of society, in how people go on about, in this case, Bill Gates, and that what they do is a lot but, forget all that, he'll never do enough anyway.

Here's one thing: you don't know what he's doing except for what is mentioned in whatever media and seem to think that his total value would make a difference. Have you ever seen something go away because of an amount of money that was involved? You think if Gates just wishes his total value to help the issues will go away? Here's an example:

Jimmy Buffett has done a lot of fundraiser shows for various things over the decades. He does shows for food banks. That's public.

What isn't public is his continuing funding of a feed the homeless program in New Orleans. There's certainly more that he does without anyone publicly knowing about it. He started Last Mango Boatworks and is involved with the Freedom Fighters Outdoors for veterans (Wounded Warriors, etc) to go fishing.

The bit about athletes etc was not an intentional misquote - that's something that is thrown around with entitled abandon by a lot of people that don't know what they (athletes etc) are doing - it's assumptive.

The ignorant and arrogant quip is about Americans. True enough, that does sound like all of them. It's not. I know plenty of Americans (an arrogant term, actually, Amercians - which America? It's casually meant for US citizens but there are 3 Americas so...) that are not entitled or arrogant. What's funny, at least in the last few years, is how social media has become the center of rant and rage... for a lot of people that apparently don't have jobs and rage on about inequality, "standing in solidarity" with people they have zero in common with or are actually with... etc.

So, point is, it was indirectly at you - you were the source for what I hear a lot, you just happened to be a bit more detailed about it. Yeah yeah, everyone has their own opinion... but opinions can be wrong.

COVID-19 has a lot of opinion going on... and a lot of it isn't based in facts but what's, ha ha, spread around on social media and people believing things without, imagine this - READING beyond the headline.

We may not be on the same page but I think we're in the same book. It was more of a 'Oh really?' as opposed to 'YOU'RE WRONG'.

It's very simple. No matter how much you or anyone does, it's never enough and you could always do more. I'm just pleased that so many people do something rather than nothing.

Trying to do my part from the safety of my couch, I tried to make an appointment to donate blood but sadly am excluded as I have been outside Canada / US in the past 12 months (it’s been a while since I donated, that standard is one I have never seen before). Made a donation to Doctors Without Borders and am trying to come up with other ideas. I volunteer at a hospital but all volunteer services were cancelled over a week ago. Does anyone have any ideas about other useful things one can safely do to contribute?

In the meantime, there’s this:

Day 1 of Seattle shut down. I had to go out to a lab to get some blood drawn & it was spooky. Very few cars or people out. Kind of like a 50s sci fi movie like Day the Earth Stood Still. The footage from NYC looks like something from a zombie movie. & its still early days. Gov Inslee of Washington said the state is talking directly to China to try & get medical supplies & equipment. Taking the federal government out of the loop. Probably a smart move given how this has gone to date.

Yep. I realized when travelling a few weeks ago that it is just impossible to keep your hands completely germ-free for any length of time, whatever you do, unless you touch nothing zilch nada. You are out, you use hand sanitizer and then you have to close the bottle lid you infected when opening it and after that you put the bottle back in the bag or pocket you touched with your germ-ridden hands to take the bottle out in the first place. So no sooner have you sanitized your hands than they are full of germs again! Still, better than nothing...

Experts seem to be saying that the "real" number to look at is the number of people in ICU as that's a "hard" number, as opposed to "new cases" or "new deaths" that vary greatly from one country to another.

Absolutely - the stories here about the lack of personal protection equipment supplied to our health workers are appalling and, if true, a total shame on our country. At 8 pm this evening, the nation clapped and banged pots and pans in a gesture of thanks to those brave workers, who are thought to have a bigger viral load through repeated exposure to the virus. Sickening stories too about nurses being thrown out of their rented and/or shared accommodation because they are seen as posing a health risk to others.

“We did not act fast enough to have an ability to avoid the shutdown.”
