|San Francisco - Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg announced Tuesday he is a dad and pledged to give away his fortune to make the world a "better place" for baby daughter Maxima and others.
In a letter to Maxima posted on his Facebook page Cheap Pete Rose Jersey , Zuckerberg and his pediatrician wife Priscilla Chan said they were going to give away 99 percent of their company shares -- estimated value $45 billion -- during their lives in an effort to make a happy and healthy world.

"Max, we love you and feel a great responsibility to leave the world a better place for you and all children. We wish you a life filled with the same love, hope and joy you give us. We can't wait to see what you bring to this world," the letter said.
Zuckerberg will "gift or otherwise direct" nearly all his shares of Facebook stock, or the after-tax proceeds of sales of shares Cheap Anthony DeSclafani Jersey , to further a mission of "advancing human potential and promoting equality" by means of activities for the public good, the California-based social network said in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Zuckerberg "intends to retain his majority voting position in our stock for the foreseeable future," Facebook said in the SEC filing.
"As you begin the next generation of the Chan Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation," the Facebook chief and his wife said.
"Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning Cheap Joey Votto Jersey , curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities."
- Giving Pledge -
Zuckerberg early on added his name to those who have taken a Giving Pledge to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.
Names on the pledge include Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, and IACInterActiveCorp powerhouse Barry Diller.
"We believe all lives have equal value Cheap Billy Hamilton Jersey , and that includes the many more people who will live in future generations than live today," Zuckerberg and Chan said in their letter to Max.
"Our society has an obligation to invest now to improve the lives of all those coming into this world, not just those already here."
Zuckerberg in November said that he and Chan are donating $20 million to help get high-speed Internet service to US classrooms.
The money is being given to nonprofit group Education Super Highway to help with its mission, the Facebook chief executive said in a post on his page at the social network.
A month earlier, Zuckerberg and his doctor wife revealed plans to start a private school in a hardscrabble Silicon Valley town Cheap Scooter Gennett Jersey , mixing education with health care.
Zuckerberg voiced pride in Chan for the plan to create "The Primary School" in the working-class city of East Palo Alto.
In June of last year, Zuckerberg and Chan began pumping $120 million into San Francisco Bay Area schools.
More than five years ago, Zuckerberg channeled $100 million to improve schools in the New Jersey city of Newark in an early foray into improving public education that got failing grades.
- Dad time -
Zuckerberg plans to take two months' paternity leave to be a dad.
"Studies show that when working parents take time to be with their newborns, outcomes are better for the children and families," Zuckerberg said in an earlier post on his Facebook page.
Beginning with the new year Cheap Zack Cozart Jersey , dads working full-time for Facebook anywhere in the world will have the option of taking four months' paid leave.
All new dads working for Facebook outside the US currently get a minimum of four weeks' paternity leave, with more time offered in locations where required by local law, according to Facebook.
Same-sex partners who are not primary caregivers for babies get the same paid leave time as dads, the social network said.
The change, effective January 1 Cheap Barry Larkin Jersey , essentially raises parental leave time for dads and non-custodial same-sex partners from four weeks to four months.
Maternity leave offered to Facebook employees around the world is already four months, and the benefit was available to both moms and dads in the United States.
Facebook also gives a $4,000 bonus for parents to help meet the needs of new babies.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Researchers at theUniversity of Washington (UW) are developing the first smartphoneapplication, or app Cheap Joe Morgan Jersey , that is capable of detecting concussion andother traumatic brain injuries in the field.
The app, known as PupilScreen, can detect changes in a pupil'sresponse to light using a smartphone's video camera and deeplearning tools - a type of artificial intelligence - that canquantify changes imperceptible to the human eye.
As described in a paper presented this week at Ubicomp 2017,PupilScreen can assess a patient's pupillary light reflex almost aswell as a pupilometer, an expensive and rarely used machine foundonly in hospitals.
It uses the smartphone's flash to stimulate the patient's eyesand the video camera to record a three-second video.
The video is processed using algorithms that can determine whichpixels belong to the pupil in each video frame and measure thechanges in pupil size across those frames.
In a small pilot study that combined 48 results from patientswith traumatic brain injury and from healthy people Cheap Johnny Bench Jersey , clinicianswere able to diagnose the brain injuries with almost perfectaccuracy using the app's output alone.
