Can you imagine having free WiFi for your children? A Swiss couple inadvertently got it by choosing “Twifia” as their young daughter’s middle name in response to a strange promotion from an internet company.
According to the LADbible portal, the Twifi company announced on Facebook that it would give free internet to anyone who named their baby Twifus (if it was a boy) or Twifia (if it was a girl) and proved it with a birth certificate.
A decade ago, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett launched “The Giving Pledge,” which they explain as “a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to giving back.”
According to the official website, some 210 billionaires and mega-millionaires have made the so-called “pledge.” Unfortunately, many of those billionaires are giving to fake charities that enrich themselves and all of them have helped structure the economy so that they accumulate wealth faster than they can possible “give it away.”
Bill Gates is a case in point. When he made the pledge in 2010, his net worth was $53 billion. Ten years later, his net worth is $115 billion. Bill Gates is 64 years old, so at this rate he’ll be worth $250 billion or more by the time he’s supposed to have given away at least half his wealth.
New Army computer tool will give commanders detailed risk assessments of their soldiers
WASHINGTON – A new digital tool that the Army is providing its commanders this month will give them a one-stop dashboard with their soldiers’ detailed military and personal histories so they can better gauge issues that impact their unit’s combat readiness.
Army officials said this week that the Commanders Risk Reduction Toolkit, or CRRT, will help company and battalion commanders better understand their individual soldiers, which could help them mitigate potential risky behaviors or other issues that could hurt their combat readiness. CRRT is the latest in a six-year project meant to help commanders reduce risk in their units, said Randy Lane, the chief of analytical assessments for the Army, who unveiled the new platform Wednesday during the virtual version of the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual meeting and exposition.
