60 Minutes, the gold standard of television news, has lined up three fascinating subjects for its reports on Sunday, May 12. The topics include rescued hostage Jessica Buchanan, veterans in the workforce, and a profile of how Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates sees the future.
60 Minutes: How Bill Gates Sees The Future
Charlie Rose got the plum assignment of profiling billionaire and humanitarian Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft. You might be surprised that one of Gates’s heroes is the painter Leonardo Da Vinci.
If you weren’t aware of the man’s vast wealth, you might also balk at the sum he paid to acquire a centuries-old manuscript by the creator: $30.8 million. See why Gates says the purchase was worth it, because it represents a quest for knowledge.
That’s part of what inspires Gates every day, and he is taking 60 Minutes into his personal office for a conversation that just might motivate you as well.
What’s more, Gates will explain how and why he is investing in a nuclear reactor and other technology that he says could help to change the lives of some of the poorest citizens in the world.
60 Minutes: Jessica Buchanan Rescue
