Bill Gates Joins Mark Zuckerberg In Pledging Billions To Fund DNA Altering Microchips To “Cure All Diseases”… & Locate “Alien Life”
Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have laid out plans to invest $3bn over the next 10 years with the not insignificant goal of tackling all diseases. “Can we cure, prevent or manage all disease by the end of this century?” asked Zuckerberg, speaking in front of a packed lecture theater at the University of California, San Francisco’s (UCSF) William J Rutter Center.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative will focus on some of the world’s biggest killers, including heart disease, cancer, infectious diseases and neurological diseases.
One of its biggest investments is to be a $600m “Biohub” at UCSF, which will bring together scientists and engineers from Stanford, Berkeley and UCSF – who haven’t collaborated in this way before – to develop tools to treat diseases […] Zuckerberg suggested that artificial intelligence could help with brain imaging… and [implantable] chips… The plan won the approval of one surprise guest – Microsoft founder-turned-philanthropist Bill Gates. He was welcomed to the stage by Zuckerberg, who described him as a “role model and mentor”

The US is planning to deploy 2,000 additional soldiers in its military bases Katterbach and Illesheim in Germany to mark its presence in Europe, German newspaper Nordbayern wrote.
Critics have already slammed the initiative and accused Americans of possessing an "occupation mentality."
Despite certain financial difficulties, the US wants to maintain its presence in Europe with the help of so-called "rotational units," which replace each other every 9 months, the newspaper wrote. So far, the total number of soldiers at the two bases is 1,000. Around 2,000 soldiers are expected to be deployed at the bases next year, although these plans have not yet been officially approved.
The plan also provides for an increase in the number of military equipment at the bases. Later, the United States will transfer the corresponding number of helicopters to Germany, Nordbayern wrote. "And as in the case of any real occupation, the occupied country will pay for all this. Yankee, go home!" one of the newspaper's readers, Pepsi Max, commented. The "rotational units" are expected to later support NATO troops and participate in joint exercises, for example, in the Baltic states, Bulgaria or Romania.

BRITAIN is facing the heaviest snowfalls in years this winter as the country's first icy blast arrives in SIX WEEKS unleashing FOUR MONTHS of heavy snow and sub-zero temperatures, forecasters have announced.
Thermometers are about to plunge amid predictions of crippling snowstorms and major whiteouts lasting into February.
Experts warn to expect a very “exciting” December even hinting at the possibility of a White Christmas this year.
After several mild and wet winters 2016 will buck the trend with the UK now facing the coldest and snowiest for at least six years.
Britons are warned not to be lulled into a false sense of security by the unusually hot September weather and the mild autumn so far.
A dramatic swing towards colder conditions will see temperatures plummet across the country as freezing air sweeps in from the Polar regions.
In stark contrast to last year, which was one of the mildest winter’s on record, extreme cold is forecast to set in at the start of November.
People in the north have been warned to batten down the hatches for “potent” winter blasts, blizzards and heavy snow across the country.
In another twist of misery any mild spells will be ravaged by storms unleashing torrential downpours, gales and flooding.
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said the first bitter blast will hit the north in as early as November.
He said the next four months could be plagued by heavy and persistent snow broken up by storms and heavy rain.
