Mark Zuckerberg 2016 The Lifestyles Of Young Billionaire Entrepreneurs

Mark Zuckerberg 2016 - The Lifestyles Of Young Billionaire Entrepreneurs

Zuckerberg, 29, and currently worth $19bn, according to Forbes, drives an Acura TSX and a Honda Fit, which cost about $30,000 and $18,000, respectively.

His Acura TSX, is an entry level luxury sedan which uses a 2.4 litre in-line 4 cylinder engine. It can churn out 201 hp and 172 lb-ft torque and has a 5 -speed automatic transmission, which comes with steering-wheel paddle shifters for optional manual shifting. The car is quite packed with luxury features like leather interior, automatic climate control, a seven-speaker sound system, Satellite Radio, Bluetooth and HandsFreeLink.

Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 in White Plains, New York, to Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist, and Karen (née Kempner), a psychiatrist. Even though, he was raised Jewish, Zuckerberg had since described himself as an atheist. As a junior student, Zuckerberg won prizes in science (mathematics, astronomy and physics) and classical studies. While most of his mates were busy playing games as young students, Zuckerberg was creating them.

In his early teens he created a music player named Synapse -- as a school project -- with help from a friend, which used artificial intelligence to understand one's taste in music and created a playlist accordingly. Software bigwigs like Microsoft and AOL tried to buy it and even recruit Mark. But he refused both. Instead, he went to Harvard in 2002.

On February 4, 2004, with the help of his room mates, Dutsin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, and using the finance provided by another friend, Eduardo Saverin, he launched what was then called, The Facebook. It was an instant hit, and soon made Mark the next big thing.








Immortal Species

They say the only certain things in life are death and taxes. This isn’t necessarily true. Ageing, and by extension death, is caused at the most fundamental level by cells within our bodies losing the ability to repair themselves. This problem however is not present in all species. There are organisms living right now on this planet that don’t play by the same rules that we do, and are effectively immortal.






Biggest Airport in the World Ever Built

With airports getting bigger and better all the time, this brand new transport hub is set to beat them all.

10 out-of-this-world facts about space and about us

Here are 10 out-of-this-world facts about space and about us.

We have eight planets in our Solar System. However, outside of our Solar System there are thousands of other planets. The extra-solar planets or exo-planets are in orbit around another star. So far we have almost 1800 confirmed new worlds, with another 3000 awaiting confirmation. Astronomers are looking to a star’s goldilocks zone for planets that may be habitable, just like the Earth. The majority of planets discovered so far are hot gas giant planets.

Thanks for watching.

Sea Monster in Alaska CAUGHT on Video by U S Government ?

While most people have to go searching for the Loch Ness Monster, a vacationer was fortunate enough to be gazing at the Loch … when Nessie simply popped her head out of the water … at least that’s the story we heard. A 28-year-old woman was on the balcony of her holiday home at Loch Ness when she saw a mysterious ripple on the surface, followed by a ‘blue thing’ swimming across. She grabbed her phone and managed to snap a few pictures … but when she tried to zoom in, the object disappeared. The woman claimed it’s not often one sees a monster while on holiday … but did she really see one?

Vengeance of Giant Python

Vengeance of Giant Python. Florida’s Everglades National Park is one of the last great wildlife refuges in the U.S., home to numerous endangered animals and plants, as well as alligators. But the park has become a dumping ground for a variety of non-native species, including what may be tens of thousands of Burmese pythons. Some were intentionally released by pet owners, others were set free when hurricanes hit Florida’s animal warehouses. Pythons have moved into their new home with a vengeance, thriving in the protected wilderness and disrupting its delicate ecosystem. Follow scientists and snake hunters as they study the problem and try to find solutions to the growing crisis.

Earth, Moon & Stars in 4K Ultra HD

Our senses tell us about the natural world, but our senses cannot tell us everything. That’s why we use tools, and NASA develops some of the most sophisticated, most exciting tools of all. Designed to reveal aspects of the Earth, the Sun, The Moon, these tools gather essential data about the world around us, while other instruments peer way out to much more distant places. When these data are turned into visualizations, we discover a complexity and elegance to the natural world that would otherwise elude our physical senses. Even more important, we uncover vital clues to understand how things work, how they’re changing, and what the implications for those changes may mean. With the advent of Ultra-High-Definition video, more commonly known as “4K Video”, those images take on an enhanced majesty and power. In this video, we present images about our home planet, as well as the life-giving star it orbits, and the mysterious moon that travels with us through space.

- Burma railway, Thailand/Myanmar: also known as the Death railway, was built by the Empire of Japan during World War II

- Indian railways: India has the world's busiest railway system whit over 8 billion passengers every year and the most dangerous one: more than 25,000 people die annually on India's railways

- Nepal railways: Nepal has just two railway lines with a total of 37 miles (60 km) and the train makes only two trips a day

- Nariz Del Diablo railway, Ecuador: the construction of this railroad began in 1899 and its highest point has an altitude of 11,841 ft (3609 m)

- Rameswaram Pamban Bridge, India: it is considered the most dangerous sea bridge due to its location in a cyclone-prone high wind velocity zone

- White Pass and Yukon route, Alaska: the railroad began construction in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush to reach the goldfields

- Pilatus railway, Switzerland: the world's steepest cogwheel railway

- PaSak Chonlasit Dam, Thailand: one of the longest rail bridge in the world

- Gokteik Viaduct, Myanmar

- Gelmerbahn funicular, Switzerland: the second steepest funicular railway in the world (maximum incline: 106%) but definitely the most impressive one, giving the fun of a roller coaster

- Bernina and Albula railways, Switzerland, jointly recorded in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites; the Bernina railway is one of the steepest adhesion railways in the world across the Oberalp Pass on the highest point at 2,033 m (6,670 ft) in altitude

- North Borneo railway, Malaysia: construction began in 1896 and was almost entirely destroyed during the Second World War

- Mullan Pass, in the Rocky Mountains of Montana
