16. Elton John : $300 million

Elton John : $300 million

Like Sting (#18), the man born Reginald Dwight has had his own problems with sketchy accountants—Elton's losses were estimated at a staggering £20 million, however. Not quite couch change, but also not nearly enough to break the bank for the Womens Sandra 02 Closed Toe Heels Oxitaly iHtqDWPAnv
male solo artist of all time; a guy whose '70s albums alone have sold upwards of 22 million copies to date, and whose rebooted version of “Candle in the Wind" has itself sold 33 million copies. When you're known to drop £9.6m on property and £293,000 on flowers (flowers!) in less than two years, it helps to have a pile of money as large as your personality.

17. Ringo Starr: $300 million

Ringo Starr: $300 million

Sure, Ringo benefited from his association with three of the most beloved singer-songwriters in history, but he also quietly reinvented the boundaries of rock drumming in the 1960s (just listen to “Strawberry Fields Forever" or “I Want You [She's So Heavy]" again), and his unique way with nonsensical verbal phrasing resulted in the titles for “A Hard Day's Night" and “Tomorrow Never Knows." Okay, fine: the residuals from a very egalitarian Fab Four publishing contract have been very kind to Mr. Starr.

18. Sting : $290 million

Sting : $290 million

The five platinum albums he oversaw as the leader of the Police were followed by a yuppie-beloved solo career netting the ex-schoolteacher sales of 14 million more. Then there's the Jaguar S-Type's lucrative reappropriation of “Desert Rose," and the 2007-08 reunion gigs with his old mates, which constituted the seventh-highest grossing tour of all time, pulling in $377 million. The man born Gordon Sumner was so rich in the late 1980s that his accountant Knitted Dress With Tie Waist Blackcurrent Simply Be 1dLRPG
from him, and it took him four years to notice.

19. Dr. Dre : $250 million

Dr. Dre : $250 million

Sure, the 13-years-in-the-making Detox is the Chinese Democracy of rap, but give Andre Young a break—he has been busy. In part by spending the money earned from selling 10 million copies of The Chronic and Aftermath , but primarily with Beats by Dre, the omnipresent, expensive, and exceedingly bass-friendly commodity that turned branded headphones into something that rappers could ask their business managers about (see also: #20, #8). HTC bought a $300 million stake in the company last year, when it also was announced that Dre and his Beats partner Jimmy Iovine were involved in a mysterious start-up with industrial metal pioneer Trent Reznor.

Tom Holland,

The path to superhero royalty began with a spelling bee. Having immigrated from Guyana to London when she was 7, and using her boundless energy and uncanny knack for mimicry to shake the new-kid stigma, Wright was a young teenager when she first saw Keke Palmer in the 2006 indie Akeelah and the Bee. Palmer’s “nerdy” but “cool” bespectacled character sparked something in Wright—not just the acting bug, but a desire to show audiences a new kind of relatable character, something she hopes to pass on to young fans with Black Panther.

Keke Palmer

Her parents weren’t immediately sold on the idea of a teenage Wright throwing herself entirely into acting: “In my country where I was born, Guyana, we push more for education. . . . It’s more being a lawyer, doctor, teacher, or scientist. So it was something I had to just really prove—not only to myself, but to my parents, that I could do it, and I can make a living from it, and that I was kind of good at it.” Now, even her mother agrees: she’s good at it.

Wright attended London’s Identity School of Acting , a relatively recently established multicultural program that was formed in response to some of the mustier art schools in town; it boasts John Boyega and Wright among its notable alumni. The teenaged Wright was rushing full-steam ahead to land roles in British TV and theater, but she wasn’t equipped to handle the crippling depression that hit her at the age of 20.

John Boyega

Wright is one of a new breed of actresses who, perhaps inspired by the outspokenness of another atypical Disney princess—Carrie Fisher—isn’t afraid to talk about once-taboo subjects like mental health. “I was in the dark going through so many bad things, when the world didn’t know about Shuri and Letitia and whatever is happening now,” she says. And she’s equally unafraid to talk about what pulled her out.

As the rare young star whose social-media messages are bursting with praise for a God she credits for her success, Wright says she’s not “going to hide” her religious beliefs from the world. “Everybody has their thing that they’re truthful about. My thing is just a love of God . . . so that’s what I’m going to do.” When asked how she prepares for any given scene, be it comedy or tragedy, Wright simply says, “I pray.”

Wright came to Christianity after attending a London actors’ Bible study with fellow Identity graduate Malachi Kirby ( Roots, Black Mirror ) at the height of her depression. Her immersion in her newfound religion was so strong that Wright walked away from a role in a Nicole Kidman - Elle Fanning film, most likely How to Talk to Girls at Parties, in order to focus on her relationship with God. When it came time to tackle her career with newfound commitment in 2015, she ran to it full tilt—and hasn’t stopped since.

I train neural networks, a type of machine learning algorithm, to write unintentional humor as they struggle to imitate human datasets. Well, I intend the humor. The neural networks are just doing their best to understand what's going on. Currently located on the occupied land of the Arapahoe Nation.

As technology changes, the problem is becoming more acute. Those who have toiled for decades using traditional marketing channels are amazingly daft when it comes to new media, while digital specialists suffer from ignorance of decades of accumulated wisdom (and are often even more daft).

As technology changes, the problem is becoming more acute.

How long do the basic principles of each specialty really take to learn? Certainly not a whole career. Why is it that people are expected to continue in their function long after they’ve mastered it? Wouldn’t they be better off applying their skills to different domains?

The question is especially pertinent in light of growing evidence that people often get worse with experience , at least in some aspects. On the other hand, there are very good examples of people who used old skills to make contributions in new fields (i.e logician Kurt Gödel to physics, physicist Richard Feynman to biology and computers, etc.).

The Quiet Revolution

Some of the world’s most exciting research is happening now at the Sante Fe Institute , which was set up specifically for work across domains. These days, most software is developed using the Agile method , which emphasizes cross-functional teams.

Increasingly, the ability to synthesize concepts across disciplines is much more valuable than domain knowledge, which is becoming commodity. As information becomes more accessible, the trend is sure to continue.

The irony is that, in the information age, empirical data is being devalued. What really matters is the ability to put the pieces together.

Indeed, an excellent article.

Just a reminder – it’s important to become an expert in one field at least before you begin interdisciplinary work.

In academia today interdisciplinary is all the rage, but you see a clear distinctions between people who have a good grounding in one or two disciplines and those who take a little bit from many disciplines.
