Mark Zuckerberg Hires Plouffe To Run Policy For Philanthropic Work: Zuckerberg And Hawking Looking For Alien Life
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg hired David Plouffe, who previously worked for Barack Obama and George W. Bush, for philanthropic work. Zuckerberg and Hawking are also making new efforts to find alien life by upgrading an advanced telescope in Chile.
Zuckerberg Hired Plouffe To Run Policy and Advocacy For the Philanthropic Project
Former Obama campaign manager and Uber board member David Plouffe is joining the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative as president of policy and advocacy. The change was announced by Plouffe and Zuckerberg in a pair of Facebook posts.
Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan created the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative when their daughter Max was born in December 2015, pledging to donate 99% of their Facebook shares, which was worth about $52 billion according to Frobe. The project was created to promote equality for all children in the next generation.
Zuckerberg sparked up speculation that he might someday run for political office, with his 2017 New Year's resolution to meet someone in every US state. Quartz reported that Zuckerberg's current arrangement with Facebook would allow him to serve in government, and retain control of the company.
Plouffe wrote on Facebook "My job will be to find creative ways to lift the voices of those who want to build a better future, no matter where they live, their background or their ideology. Curing disease, improving education through personalized learning and building technology and tools to help organizations reach their full potential are areas with widespread support and massive potential for mobilization, great storytelling, and smart policy engagement."
Zuckerberg And Hawking Are Looking For Alien Life
According to DailyMail, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and physicist Stephen Hawking revealed exclusively to MailOnline that they will be listening to signals from Earth 2.0, with the help of Russian entrepreneur Yuri Milner. Earth 2.0 was officially named as Proxima b.
The rocky planet Proxima b is believed to have the exact conditions to harbor life and is about four light years from Earth. They are funding an ambitious $100 million or £76 million project known as "Breakthrough Initiative'', which will use the world's most powerful telescope to listen to messages from extraterrestrial life.
