I'm excited to share that my research paper on Head and Spinal Injuries in Equestrian Sports with Dr. Cindy Lin has been published in Current Sports Medicine Reports! In this paper, we conclude that an improved understanding of preventable injury mechanisms, increased certified helmet use, improved helmet technologies, and educational outreach may help mitigate risk factors for injuries in equestrian sports. As a competitive equestrian, safety in our sport is something that I take very seriously, and I really appreciated this opportunity to combine my passions for medicine and equestrian sports. A huge thank you to sports medicine specialist Dr. Lin (a fellow equestrian!) for her mentorship and support on my first published paper! #research #sportsmedicine #equestriansafety

Jennifer Gates’ Father, Bill Gates

Bill Gates vies for the title of the richest man alive with Jeff Bezos (Amazon), and his wealth is estimated at $112 billion as of early 2020. Born William Henry Gates III on the 28th October 1955, in Seattle, Washington USA, he is the son of William H. Gates Sr. and his wife Maxwell Gates. Bill’s mother passed away in 1994. He is of English, German, and Scots-Irish ancestry, and the middle child with an older sister Kristianne, and a younger one named Libby.

The family lived in the Sand Point area of Seattle, and when he turned 13, he enrolled at the private Lakeside prep school, and it was there that he wrote his first software program and slowly started leaning towards interest in software and the whole IT industry. The school bought a Teletype Model 33 ASR terminal and computer time on a General Electric computer for the school’s students. He chose the software language BASIC instead of mathematics, on which he wrote his first program. He teamed up with Ric Weiland, Paul Allen and Kent Evans, with whom he tried to get more time on the computer by using the bugs in the computer program.

They were caught and banned, but secured a deal with CCC to get more time on the computer in exchange for trying to find bugs in the program.

After finishing high school, Bill enrolled at Harvard College, however, he quit his studies after two years, never obtaining his degree, though he’s received numerous honorary degrees after becoming the most prominent figure in software. After quitting Harvard, he joined forces with Paul Allen again, this time to create Microsoft, which became the world’s largest software company, with Bill serving as its CEO until 2000.

He has remained its chairman, but has been focused on other matters, as he is now serving as the Chairman of several companies, including Branded Entertainment Network, TerraPower, Cascade Investment, and others.

He is also one of the biggest philanthropists in the world, having started the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and in 2009 founding The Giving Pledge with Warren Buffett and others, formally committing a sizeable percentage of income annually for distribution to a variety of charities.
