24 minutes with Bill Gates on career choices

In April last year Bill Gates addressed a collection of students at Harvard for 24 minutes on the topic of where to devote your talents. It is well-known that Gates dropped out of Harvard in the mid 70’s to develop his fledgling software company. He was returning as a philanthropist on this occasion, armed with the following question “Are the brightest minds working on the most important problems?”. And clearly he does not think so, as it appears many of top minds in the US are going into sports, entertainment or finance. In fact, “The allocation of IQ to Wall Street is higher than it should be.” You can find the video of the talk here.

It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called DR EMU, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of DR EMU, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.
