Mark Zuckerberg announced Tuesday that he’s giving away 99% of his Facebook shares — valued at $45 billion today — to charity during his lifetime.
The Facebook CEO announced the news in a letter to his newborn daughter, Max.
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, created the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Its mission mimics much of what Zuckerberg and Chan’s donations have focused on in the past: personalized learning, curing diseases, and connecting people.
The move is not surprising given that five years ago Zuckerberg signed the “Giving Pledge” — along with other tech billionaires such as Bill Gates — to give away the majority of his wealth.

The police discovered the body on a routine visit some 14 months after the woman’s death.
Kersting pleaded guilty to grand larceny, improperly disposing of a body, and endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physcially disabled person.

Can you share instances when fans reacted to you with the belief that you’re a wicked man?
They have done daring things. Some of their actions look like attacks, but with my experience as an entertainer, I will say I saw all that coming, so I was able to manage all of them very well. But one day, while I was on Onitsha ‘Head Bridge’ on my way to Asaba, there was this traffic snarl that made us come out of the car.

I have not even posted comments on the last one and one of us, Obinna Azubuko deemed it fit to send in 3 ways one could get rid of dark underarms. LL readers aren’t smiling, one of the reasons I love us too much on this blog. Love love love my peeps. The three ways;
The mild acidic property present in potatoes is a great natural bleaching agent. Unlike strong bleaching agents, it will not cause skin irritation.
*.Simply rub a thin slice of potato on your underarms.
*.You can also grate the potato and apply the juice to the affected area, allow it to dry for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
Use either of these remedies twice daily for better and faster results.
Just like potatoes, cucumbers also have natural bleaching properties to help lighten discolored skin.
*.Simply rub a thin cucumber slice on your underarms or grate a cucumber and apply the juice under your arms. Do this once or twice daily until you are satisfied with the results.
*.Another option is to extract the juice from a cucumber and mix it with a little turmeric powder and lemon juice. Apply this paste on the affected area. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and then wash it off with water. Repeat this home remedy once daily or every other day for best results.
Lemon works as a natural bleach and a powerful antibacterial and antiseptic agent. This is why lemon is used in the treatment of various skin-related problems including dark underarms. Lemon can dry out your skin, so apply a moisturizer after using these remedies if needed.
*.To remove dead skin cellsand lighten your underarms, rub a lemon wedge on the skin for a few minutes. Leave the juice on your skin for about 10 minutes and then wash the area thoroughly. For better exfoliation, you can sprinkle a little sugar on the lemon wedge and then use it. Do this a few times a week.
