Bill Gates says progress made on new ultra-thin condom

NEW DELHI (AFP) - Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates said on Thursday that progress is being made on developing a "next-generation" ultra-thin, skin-like condom that could offer better sexual pleasure, help population control and be financed by first-world investors.
Last year, the Microsoft co-founder and one of the world's richest men offered inventors US$100,000 (S$127,000) in start-up grants to develop a "next-generation" of super-sheath condoms through the charitable Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Grand Challenges in Global Health.
It looks like "there are some technological materials that will be able to maintain a (condom) barrier with a very thin, thin material", Gates said in New Delhi.
Gates, who was speaking at a question-and-answer session with his wife Melinda, said the foundation had received a lot of proposals from inventors.
The Seattle-based foundation has given one grant of US$100,000 to the University of Manchester to research a condom using a super-light conducive material known as graphene.
Another US$100,000 grant has gone to the University of Oregon for a proposal to create a polyurethane condom that would create a seal around the penis and be less than half the thickness of the best condoms available now.
The foundation's "Grand Challenges" are aimed at improving the lives of the world's poorest people.
Scientists say they want to achieve a new super-strength thin membrane for a condom to achieve what they call a "barely-there" feel.
Men often say they are reluctant to use condoms because they decrease sexual pleasure.
The aim would be to encourage more couples to use condoms, preventing pregnancy and helping avert spread of sexually transmitted viruses such as HIV.
The foundation has said it could provide further funding of up to US$1 million to develop a new condom that would "enhance the pleasure so as to increase uptake".
Gates has said first-world investors have little interest in developing medicines to combat such illnesses as malaria and tuberculosis as they are not prevalent in wealthy countries.
However, "there could be a market for this (thin condom) among well-off nations, which doesn't happen with a lot of innovations," he said.

 

 

this is the software that will prevent virus but still not 100% [laugh][laugh]

some countries must seriously control their population <_<

World population may hit 11 billion by 2100: Study

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The world population may grow larger than previously estimated, reaching 11 billion people by century's end, according to a UN-led analysis published Thursday.
That would mean two billion more people on Earth than expected by 2100, largely due to high birth rates in Africa, said the report in the US journal Science.
"The consensus over the past 20 years or so was that world population, which is currently around seven billion, would go up to nine billion and level off or probably decline," said co-author Adrian Raftery, professor of statistics and of sociology at the University of Washington.
"We found there's a 70 per cent probability the world population will not stabilise this century," he added.
The study uses the most recent United Nations population data, released in July, and employs Bayesian statistics to combine all available information to generate better predictions.
Previous estimates typically relied on expert opinions about how life expectancy and fertility rates would change over time.
"Earlier projections were strictly based on scenarios," said UN demographer Patrick Gerland.
"This work provides a more statistically driven assessment that allows us to quantify the predictions, and offer a confidence interval that could be useful in planning."
The bulk of the growth was anticipated in Africa, where the population is expected to rise from one billion today to four billion by the end of the century.
"There is an 80 per cent chance that the population in Africa at the end of the century will be between 3.5 and 5.1 billion people," said the study.
While Africa is expected to boom in size, some populations are expected to peak or shrink, the study said.
Asia, now at 4.4 billion, is projected to peak at around five billion people in 2050 and then start to decline.
North America, Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean are all expected to remain under one billion each.
More people on Earth will likely exacerbate problems such as climate change, infectious diseases and poverty.
"Population, which had sort of fallen off the world's agenda, remains a very important issue," said Raftery.
Two methods that have been shown to decrease population are wider access to birth control and the education of girls and women.

he should go back to his MS and make Windows a better OS and WP a better phone. The WP after so many years, still so pathetic albielt a very stable and robust OS for phone. However, it is going downhill and getting more and more bloated as far as I can see as a current user.
