Multi-billionaire Elon Musk's real net worth, like his personality, is volatile and mercurial.Probably the best known billionaire in the world (and undoubtedly the most covered by the news and social media), Musk and his exact wealth are a matter of speculation because he lives such an un-billionaire type existence.For one, Musk has no guaranteed multimillion dollar annual salary plus stock options and perks from Tesla Inc. Musk has a $56,000 monthly salary from Tesla but hasn't drawn this salary even once. Seems Musk relies on his salaries and perks from his other businesses such as SpaceX, The Boring Company, OpenAI and Neuralink to get by.But here's what we know about Musk's wealth. Forbes estimates his "real time net worth" as of May 15 at $19.5 billion. That's good for Number 40 on Forbes' billionaires list.

KUALA LUMPUR: After a year of Pakatan Harapan (PH) rule, the media in Malaysia is going through some positive developments as the government has repealed or set aside several laws that were stifling press freedom in the country. Malaysia has jumped up 22 notches in the latest World Press Freedom Index and ranked 123 out of 180 countries listed. Paris-based organisation Reporters without Borders (RSF) that compiled the index, said press freedom received a breath of fresh air in Malaysia after Barisan Nasional (BN) was ousted in May last year. It said the journalists and media outlets that were previously blacklisted were now able to resume working without fear of harassment. The controversial fake news law has also been suspended pending abolition. The government has agreed to abolish several legislations which curb media freedom such as the Printing Presses and Publications Act, Sedition Act and amend the Communications and Multimedia Act.

By Alina Tugend The New York Times Sun., May 12, 2019 Maria Uriarte, a professor in the department of ecology, evolution and environmental biology at Columbia University, is trying to understand how Hurricane Maria in 2017 altered plant life in Puerto Rico. But trying to identify which species of tree survived and which was destroyed over acres of rainforests by looking at aerial photographs is a near-impossible task for the human eye. “The challenge with ecology as a field and climate change as an area is that the world is highly variable,” Uriarte said. “You can learn something about what happens in one place, but then the question is: How applicable is this in other areas that I haven’t worked at?” That is why she has turned to artificial intelligence, and machine learning in particular, which is especially good at taking in large amounts of information, then sorting through it, classifying it and “learning” to detect — … [Read more...] about How AI can help handle severe weather

MANILA – She is one of the Philippines’ fastest rising vloggers. And one could not help but wonder how much Alex Gonzaga earns from her YouTube videos, each having millions of views. Lucky for those who are curious, TV host Boy Abunda asked this burning question during his show, “Inside the Cinema,” where Gonzaga appeared as a guest alongside her sister Toni and fellow influencer Bianca Gonzalez. “How much can an influencer earn?” he asked. Gonzaga did not immediately answer the question as she first opted to explain how earning from YouTube works. She noted that English-speaking vloggers with an international audience are “Google-preferred” and have the potential of earning more than someone like her, who churns out videos in Filipino. “When you have an international audience… ang one American audience is equivalent to four Filipinos, one is to four,” Gonzaga explained. “So ‘yung cpm (cost per mille)… … [Read more...] about News WATCH: How much does Alex Gonzaga earn as a vlogger?
