Of all the things I did when I visited Cornell University recently, I probably had the most fun brushing up on how plants have sex.
Cornell is one of the world’s top universities for research on improving crops. Their work involves a lot of plant breeding. During one meeting, I got to try my hand at cross-pollinating wheat, which is a surprisingly delicate procedure. It gave me even more respect for the people who do it every day.
Cornell’s work on crop improvement also involves a lot of cutting-edge genetics. You might see the words “crop improvement” and “genetics” in the same sentence and think I’m talking about GMOs. Although Melinda and I do support research in that area—we don’t think poor farmers should be denied the choice to use any tools that might benefit them—the work I saw at Cornell is different. It’s focused on how the science of genetics can improve agriculture in other ways. And the advances are really exciting
I got interested in crop breeding through my work with the Gates Foundation. Because most of the world’s poor people are farmers, helping farmers grow more food is one of the most powerful levers we have for fighting poverty. The faster we can improve crops—making them more nutritious or drought-tolerant, for instance—the faster we can help farmers become more productive.

The following video was created to raise your awareness on the conservation of our planet. But sometimes we simply see, share, or just talk about these kind of videos on social networks, but a few actually take action to help others. Why do the majority of people feel they cannot help? Because most do not have extra money or time. Imagine helping people while simultaneously building your own wealth?
Do you want to be a part of those “few” that make the difference in our world? Imagine with just €50 / US$65 per week, per month or per year, on your on time, you can exchange your worthless Fiat money [Commodity money vs Fiat money] with a superior currency, and help children every time you make this currency exchange in third world poverty.
You can buy as many gold as you want and you will also help as many kids as you want with providing them with food, education and shelter.
For the first time, here is your opportunity to build your wealth and create change for the kids of Africa
