Melinda Gates and Bill Gates Why giving away our wealth has been the most satisfying thing we've done In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates—then engaged—took a walk on a beach in Zanzibar, and made a bold decision on how they would make sure that their wealth from Microsoft went back into society. In a conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as about their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their wealth away.

World Peace Game
World Game World Game, sometimes called the World Peace Game, is an educational simulation developed by Buckminster Fuller in 1961 to help create solutions to overpopulation and the uneven distribution of global resources. This alternative to war games uses Fuller's Dymaxion map and requires a group of players to cooperatively solve a set of metaphorical scenarios, thus challenging the dominant nation-state perspective with a more wholistic "total world" view. The idea was to "make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone", thus increasing the quality of life for all people. He first publicly proposed the concept as the core curriculum at the (then new) Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Fuller proposed it again in 1964 for the 1967 International and Universal Exposition in Montreal, Quebec.

A true story about survival in the Adirondack Mountains. The park covers 6.1 million acres, a land area greater than Vermont, or than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier, and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks combined. The Adirondacks are also home to thousands of black bears, deadly snakes, and countless other dangers. Abandoned in the middle of the park with no survival experience and very few supplies, the entire journey was documented and filmed. Click here to watch the whole series!
