The quickest way to get your idea greenlighted in Hollywood is … well, to not have an idea at all.

Rebooting classic shows and movies is the name of the game these days — after three different Spider-Mans and three different Hulks in the past 20 years, you’d think people might get bored, but apparently not.

Superhero flicks aren’t the only ones getting fresh coats of paint, either.

The Weinstein Company has their eye on ultra-popular 1980s cop show Knight Rider, and is planning a comedic take on the show, in the same vein as Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 21 Jump Street.

Screenrant reported Tuesday that the studio hopes to snag WWE superstar John Cena to play Michael Knight (portrayed by David Hasselhoff in the original series) and comedian-slash-actor Kevin Hart to voice his car, KITT.

In recent years, Cena has followed the path set by The Rock — er, sorry, Dwayne Johnson — back in the early 2000s, splitting time between the wrestling ring and the silver screen.

I sell compression bras with slim pouches that adhere for hot and cold relief.

Ten percent of each purchase goes to breast cancer research, and I wonder how I could use my philanthropic associations to get more exposure.

Cause marketing is not new, but many entrepreneurs do not leverage their support of worthwhile causes.

First thing--make sure every piece of promotional material you have (including your website) states your philanthropic mission prominently.

If you are supporting a specific, well-known organization, you should be able to get permission from that organization to use its logo on your materials, as well.

You should also make an appointment to chat/meet with the local representative of that organization to discuss various ways you can work with the group (perhaps as a sponsor of the annual fund-raising gala).

If there’s one thing we can agree on, it’s that nobody agrees on how to create economic growth.

But at Arch Grants, we’ve chosen venture philanthropy, a people-based development model that combines the principles of venture capital with charitable giving in order to address big societal issues.

First and foremost, our model of venture philanthropy generates investment for social good by betting on the potential of people.

It allows people or organizations with capital to create change outside of government or public funding sources, which, though effective in the long term, struggle when it comes to short-term economic growth.

By contributing to businesses directly, we can bypass bureaucratic hurdles and make nimble investments that contribute to a climate of entrepreneurship.

At Arch Grants, we give $50,000 to founders with defined visions for their startups and a desire to grow their business here.

Microsoft co-founder makes huge charity donation, as he continues Foundation’s philanthropic work

Bill Gates has continued his philanthropic drive with his largest donation to charity since the year 2000.

In June this year he donated 64 million Microsoft shares, worth $4.6 billion (£3.6bn), according to a US Securities & Exchange Commission filing.

Whilst the recipient of the donation was not disclosed, it is widely believed to be the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which Gates set up in 2000 with $5 billion funding to tackle global healthcare and poverty.

Bill Gates is currently the world’s richest man, although last month he was briefly knocked off the top spot by Amazon’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos for a couple of hours after a brief surge in Amazon’s share price.

It is not clear whether Gates will remain in the top spot at the rate his charity donations are going, but the latest $4.6 billion share donation represents approximately 5 percent of Gates’ current $90bn fortune.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has withdrawn plans to reclassify the company’s stock in order to retain full control while funding his philanthropy, settling a major class-action lawsuit with shareholders.

Instead, the tech founder intends to accelerate the sales of shares to fund the philanthropic projects outlined in the Chan Zuckerberg initiative - a limited liability company founded by Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, to “advance human potential” and “promote equality”.

In a Facebook post announcing the new plan, Zuckerberg said he anticipates “selling 35-75 million Facebook shares in the next 18 months to fund our work in education, science, and advocacy.” At today’s price of around $170, that represents roughly $6bn to $13bn.

The founder’s former plan to reclassify stock to fund this philanthropy was challenged by shareholders.

The plan, first announced in April 2016 as part of its earnings release, would mean that people could buy into Facebook with what’s called “Class C” stock - that gives them no voting rights.

The restructure would allow Zuckerberg to make acquisitions without much resistance from investors, while letting Facebook “resist the short term pressures that often hurt companies,” he wrote.

Mark Zuckerberg has gotten so rich that he can fund his philanthropic foundation and retain voting control without Facebook having to issue a proposed non-voting class of stock that faced shareholder resistance.

Today Facebook announced that it’s withdrawn its plan to issue Class C no-vote stock and has resolved the shareholder lawsuit seeking to block the corporate governance overhaul.

Instead, Zuckerberg says that because Facebook has become so valuable, he can sell a smaller allotment of his stake in the company to deliver plenty of capital to his Chan Zuckerberg Initiative foundation that aims to help eradicate disease and deliver personalized education to all children.

“Over the past year and a half, Facebook’s business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more,” Zuckerberg writes.

Facebook’s share price has increased roughly 45 percent, from $117 to $170, since the Class C stock plan was announced, with Facebook now valued at $495 billion.

“We are gratified that Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg have agreed not to proceed with the reclassification we were challenging,” writes Lee Rudy, the partner at Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check LLP that was representing the plaintiffs in the lawsuit seeking to block the no-vote share creation.

The Internet Archive has been gifted $1 million in bitcoins as a donation to help fund the organization.

The donation was given by an unnamed philanthropist via the Pineapple Fund, which has given money in the form of bitcoin to a variety of charities.

Internet Archive is now the 14th entity to receive bitcoin from the philanthropist, who states on their website that they’re donating most of their coin to the greater good.

Internet Archive works hard to preserve the Internet as it existed over the years, offering anyone a glimpse of the digital past via its Wayback Machine.

According to the non-profit, its library contains more than 3.7 million images, more than 15 million books, 185k pieces of audio, and more.

Facebook is dropping a plan to restructure its stock, which would have allowed CEO Mark Zuckerberg to retain control of the company even as he planned to sell his shares for philanthropic causes.

Zuckerberg said Friday he's still committed to his philanthropic efforts, but will fund it without the stock change.

"Over the past year and a half, Facebook's business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more," he wrote on his Facebook page.

After his first daughter, Max, was born in December 2015, Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, announced a new organization called the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to focus on charitable work and philanthropy.

At the time, he pledged to give away 99 percent of his wealth over his lifetime.

On Friday, he said the vow still stands.

Mark Zuckerberg has gotten so rich that he can fund his philanthropic foundation and retain voting control without Facebook having to issue a proposed non-voting class of stock that faced shareholder resistance.

Today Facebook announced that it’s withdrawn its plan to issue Class C no-vote stock and has resolved the shareholder lawsuit seeking to block the corporate governance overhaul.

Instead, Zuckerberg says that because Facebook has become so valuable, he can sell a smaller allotment of his stake in the company to deliver plenty of capital to his Chan Zuckerberg Initiative foundation that aims to help eradicate disease and deliver personalized education to all children.

“Over the past year and a half, Facebook’s business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more,” Zuckerberg writes.

Facebook’s share price has increased roughly 45 percent, from $117 to $170, since the Class C stock plan was announced, with Facebook now valued at $495 billion.

“We are gratified that Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg have agreed not to proceed with the reclassification we were challenging,” writes Lee Rudy, the partner at Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check LLP that was representing the plaintiffs in the lawsuit seeking to block the no-vote share creation.

Facebook is dropping a plan to restructure its stock, which would have allowed CEO Mark Zuckerberg to retain control of the company even as he planned to sell his shares for philanthropic causes.

Zuckerberg said Friday he's still committed to his philanthropic efforts, but will fund it without the stock change.

"Over the past year and a half, Facebook's business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more," he wrote on his Facebook page.

After his first daughter, Max, was born in December 2015, Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, announced a new organization called the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to focus on charitable work and philanthropy.

At the time, he pledged to give away 99 percent of his wealth over his lifetime.

On Friday, he said the vow still stands.
