stars-with-huge-fortunes-but-who-will-not-leave-any-money-to-their-children-daniel-craig-the-idea-of-inheritance-is-unpleasant

Many celebrities will not leave a fortune to their heirs. Hollywood actors and actresses, TV presenters and simply famous people have made such a decision. Who are they and why did they make this decision? 


Daniel Craig, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Gordon Ramsay are just some of the stars who do not consider it fair for their sons or daughters to benefit from the wealth for which they have worked for a long time. 


Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis

“I don't create a reserve fund for them. We will end up giving our money to charities. My children lead a truly privileged life and I don't even know it. If they want to start a business and have a good plan, I will invest in it, but I will not invest in trust ", said Ashton.


Daniel Craig

Daniel Craig will not leave his children any money from his $ 125 million fortune. The actor who plays James Bond said that "the idea of ​​inheritance is unpleasant", according to The Independent. Daniel Craig finds this concept tasteless and confessed that "my philosophy is to spend it or donate it to the end of my life."


Elton John

"It's awful to give children a silver spoon, " Elton said in an interview. "Boys have an incredible life, they are not like normal children, nor do I pretend to be. But there must be an appearance of normalcy, a certain respect for money, a certain respect for work ”. Elton is a father of twin boys and is estimated to have a fortune of almost $ 500 million.


Jackie Chan

If he is able, he will be able to earn his own money. If not, then my money will definitely be wasted",said the actor about his two children.


George Lucas (Star Wars)

George Lucas made a fortune from "Star Wars" and recently revealed that he intends to donate most of his money to education. His fortune would exceed $ 6 billion.  "I dedicate most of my fortune to improving education. Because it is the key to the survival of the human race. We need to plan for our collective future - and the first step begins with the social, emotional and intellectual tools we offer our children. As humans, the greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and adapt - as educators, storytellers and communicators, it is our responsibility to continue to do so, ” said George. 


Sting

“I told them there wouldn't be much money left because my wife and I were spending it. We have a lot of commitments. We spend everything that comes our way, so there's not much left. I certainly don't want to leave them in reserve funds. He has to work. All my children know this and rarely ask me anything, which I really respect and appreciate. Obviously, if they had problems, I would help them, but I never had to do that. They have a work ethic that makes them want to succeed on their own merits, ” Sting admitted.


Gordon Ramsay

"Definitely the money will not reach them. And I'm not saying that badly. I made this decision so as not to spoil them. The only thing I decided is that they will receive a 25% deposit for an apartment, so not the full amount. I was very lucky to have this career in the last 15 years in the USA. Seriously, I made a fortune and I was very lucky, so I respect everything I have”,Gordon confessed. 



Simon Cowell

“I will probably leave the money to a charity to help children and dogs. I don't believe in passing on wealth from one generation to the next. Inheritance must be the opportunity you give to people so that they can do better, the time you give, the fact that you pass on what you have learned in turn, " said Simon.

stars-one-by-one-are-starting-to-leave-tiktok-over-data-security-concerns


At 18, Richards is a true TikTok superstar, with over 20 million subscribers to the video-sharing app (well over 14.1 million Kylie Jenner for context) and over 1 billion likes on his posts.



Now, at a crucial time for TikTok - because Microsoft is in talks to buy this business in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and after President Donald Trump threatened to ban the application for security issues, Richards says that leaves TikTok in favor of the competing video sharing application Triller.


Richards first started on social media when he was 13 years old.


"I had a similar Instagram in which I posted messages with 70 followers. They were just my friends. It was a personal account, "Richards told CNBC Make It.


Then, before leaving his first year of high school, Richards began posting videos about him dancing to rap in the video-sharing app formerly known as Musical.ly. (Beijing's TikTok owner, ByteDance, bought Musical.ly for $ 1 billion in 2017 and merged the two apps.) Richards argued with himself that if he could get 10,000 subscribers by the end of the summer, he would continue to post; if not, he will leave.


 





Despite Richards' huge success on TikTok, he announced on July 28 that he was leaving the app and was going to compete with Triller. Triller debuted as a short music content app in 2015 but has since added a social feature similar to TikTok.


Richards said his decision to leave was due to security concerns. (In January, a group of security researchers announced that they had found vulnerabilities in the platform that could make them vulnerable to hackers, and recently Trump and other Washington officials accused the application of collecting data about Americans and sending it to the government. Chinese. TikTok denies the allegations.)


However, Richards is also the head of the strategy for Thriller and an undisclosed investor in the business.


Richards also says he still posts on TikTok before moving full-time to Triller to encourage his followers to move in with him. Other social media influencers such as Noah Beck (who is also a Triller investor) and Griffin Johnson followed Richards to Triller but still use their TikTok accounts to gain followers.


Triller co-owner Ryan Cavanaugh says Triller stores only "very limited data" about its users in the US and UK for security purposes and uses double encryption. And "we can't even afford it, even if they wanted the app to be downloaded in China," says Kavanaugh.

perseid-meteor-shower-2022-when-is-the-best-time-to-watch-the-meteor-shower

The most romantic and promising night is expected in 2022 from 12 to 13 August. It is during this period, according to scientists, that the peak of the meteor shower will occur. We will tell you at what time there will be the most shooting stars, and how to make wishes correctly so that they come true.

 

Perseid meteor shower 2022

 

 

How and when to watch the Perseid meteor shower in August?

 

The effect of the meteor shower is generated by particles from the tail of comet Swift-Tuttle. Moving along a highly elongated orbit, it makes one revolution around the Sun in 133 years. When approaching a star, the comet's nucleus partially evaporates, and the gases carry dust and small stones with them, forming a bright tail behind it. Despite their small size (only a few millimeters), they have tremendous speed, therefore, crashing into the atmosphere, they flash very brightly. Particles hit the earth's atmosphere at a speed of 53 km/s.

 

The Perseid meteor shower phenomenon occurs annually. Its peak is in mid-August. This year, the conditions for observing meteorites are especially favorable, since the maximum activity of the stream falls on the period when it will be night in Europe. In addition, a new moon is expected on August 11, which means that moonlight will not interfere with observations.

 

Where is the best place to watch the Perseid meteor shower?

 

 

The Perseids will be best seen in places where the sky is not covered by clouds. To observe the meteor shower, you do not need special equipment (telescopes, tubes, binoculars). It is enough to go further out of the city (30-50 kilometers) so that light pollution is minimal. Astronomers advise to observe the Perseids to get to where the eastern or southern part of the horizon is more open. Stop looking at bright light sources (flashlights, smartphones, campfires) 15 minutes before observations so that your eyes get used to the darkness. If you have poor eyesight, don't forget to wear glasses. In addition, the nights get noticeably colder in August, so be sure to bring warm clothes with you just in case. The best thing to do when observing a meteor shower is to lie down (bring a mattress) and try to observe the night sky continuously for 15 minutes (or even better).

 

When is the best time to watch the Perseid meteor shower?

 

 

It is best to observe the Perseid meteor shower (it is also often called meteor shower) on the night of August 11-12 and from August 12-13. The maximum peak of the flow activity falls on the night from the 12th to the 13th. Observation should start at 22 pm and continue until about 3 am. It will be possible to observe falling meteorites on other nights, but it is during this period of time that there will be maximum meteor activity. According to the International Meteor Organization (IMO), this weekend the frequency of meteors will reach 120 per hour.

 

Is it possible to photograph falling meteorites?

 

Yes. Having a SLR camera and the skill of working with long exposures.

 

When is the next meteor shower?

 

The Perseid shower is an annual phenomenon. Those who are not lucky this time with the weather and cloud cover will be able to try their luck next year.

 

The next meteor shower called the Draconids can be observed from 8 to 10 October. These are other meteor showers, and they are not as active as the Perseids. Their predicted falling frequency is about 15-20 meteors per hour.

 

How to make wishes so that they come true

 

1. Think about what you most want. Formulate your desire as clearly, concisely and clearly as possible. No need to describe exactly how everything should happen, just set a goal.

 

It is believed that one should always leave the Universe a place for creativity. Desires never come true in the way we imagine it to be, therefore it is better to concentrate on the ultimate goal, and let the Universe choose the path to fulfilling the dream on its own.

 

Refuse "not" and negativity in the formulation of desire.

 

2. A prepared desire should be written down on a piece of paper. From excitement, you can forget the correct wording, and you simply won’t have time to think - the particles of the comet burn out literally in an instant.

 

 

3. You can prepare a few wishes, but don't get too carried away. Choose the most intimate.

 

4. Sit comfortably by a window, on a balcony, in a park or countryside. For safety reasons, you should not be alone outside the house. Invite someone close to you whom you trust. Together it's safer and more fun.

 

5. When the "shooting star" appears in the sky, say your desire loudly and clearly. Then thank the Universe.

 

6. Let go of your dream. Try not to think about it anymore, not to dream about its fulfillment and not to talk to anyone about this. Don't expect your dream to come true instantly. Obsession will only hinder implementation. Give the universe time and opportunity to improvise.

 

Interesting details about meteors

 

 

The origin of meteor showers is associated with comets. There is a hypothesis that meteor showers were formed as a result of the decay of existing or once existing comets.

 

There are quite a lot of such falling meteor showers every year. There is even a calendar when you can see this fantastic sight in all its splendor. Each meteor shower has its own name: Lyrids, Draconids, Orionids, Leonids. Astronomers know about the existence of 64 large meteor formations.

 

It is worth noting that there are still "meteor showers", which are formed from the destruction of meteorites. These fragments of cosmic strangers can be quite large and often reach the surface of the Earth. Such phenomena are called "meteorite showers".

 

In addition to knowing the exact date of the upcoming star extravaganza, you must follow a few simple rules. To see "shooting stars" it is necessary that there be no clouds, that there are no luminous windows, lanterns and other lights of the "big city". And also, that there was no moon. The moon in all phases other than the new moon gives a fairly bright light, which significantly overshadows the picture of falling meteors.

 

We call star falls an astronomical phenomenon, which has the scientific name "meteor shower". A meteor shower occurs when the Earth enters a meteor swarm - there are areas where there are many small bodies, more cosmic dust, but fewer asteroids. But what are these bodies and why are there many of them in these areas?

 

 

Meteor swarms are formed during the destruction of comets - complete, when the comet breaks up, or partial, when it continues to exist, but leaves behind a trail of such particles. For the prediction of meteor showers, the reasons why comets are destroyed are not so important, but it is important that meteor swarms approximately coincide with the comet's trajectory and do not fly anywhere far from it. That is why meteor showers are observed at the same time of the year: the Earth makes an annual rotation around the Sun and every year passes through the same areas of meteor swarms that were left from different comets.

 

Therefore, every year we see the same starfalls. The peculiarity lies only in the fact that the meteor shower does not coincide with the full moon, which will prevent it from being seen.

 

Of course, not only a fragment of a comet from a meteor swarm can act as a meteor body. Many celestial bodies of the right size and hitting the Earth's atmosphere at the right speed can look like a shooting star. It can be, for example, a single fragment of an asteroid. But such phenomena are poorly predictable, their moment is difficult to catch. Therefore, it is meteor showers that are of interest when the Earth passes through a meteor shower, when you can simply watch the sky and, with a high probability, see a shooting star.
