Melinda Gates und der Milliardär Bill Gates sind seit 25 Jahren verheiratet. In einem Interview über ihr Buch “Wir sind viele, wir sind eins” hat Melinda Gates nun erzählt, was ihre Ehe stark macht.
Bill und sie seien an einem Punkt in ihrem Leben angekommen, an dem sie über viele Dinge lachen könnten, sagte sie der “Sunday Times”. “Ich kann mich aber auch an einige Tage in unserer Ehe erinnern, an denen ich dachte ‘Kann ich das schaffen?'”, erzählt sie ganz offen.
Wenn sie streiten, dann oft über Kleinigkeiten. Melinda Gates nennt als Beispiel, dass sie einmal wütend geworden sei, als ihr Mann ein Buch gelesen habe, anstatt ihr dabei zu helfen, das Auto zu packen. Insgesamt sei es aber sehr angenehm, mit ihm zusammenzuleben.
Das Geheimnis der Gates: gemeinsam lesen
Bei einem ihrer ersten Treffen sei Bill Gates sehr beeindruckt gewesen, als Melinda ihn bei einem Mathe-Spiel besiegte. Sich gegenseitig als ebenbürtig zu betrachten, ist für Melinda Gates einer der wichtigsten Punkte für eine funktionierende Ehe. Vor allem ein Hobby hält die Ehe der beiden intakt: Immer wieder lesen die beiden die gleichen Bücher und tauschen sich im Anschluss darüber aus.
Allgemein scheinen Melinda und Bill Gates oft einer Meinung zu sein, auch dann, wenn es um die Kindererziehung geht. Beide beschlossen, ihren drei Kindern nicht das komplette riesige Vermögen zu vererben. Jedes der Kinder wird zehn Millionen Euro erben, wie Bill Gates schon in vorherigen Interviews verraten hatte. Den Rest werden die Gates wohl spenden.
Melinda nennt in dem Interview außerdem noch ihr persönliches Geheimnis, das sie ganz besonders stark mache: ihre Freundinnen-Clique. “Wir stehen alles zusammen durch: Hochzeiten, Schwangerschaften, Todesfälle, unsere älter werdenden Eltern.” Das, sagt Melinda Gates, gebe ihr auch für ihr Privatleben Kraft.
Do you know the most insecure password in the world? Easy: "123456".
Some, very intelligent, make it more difficult for hackers and use the "123456789" key. With this, the only thing they get is having the second most insecure password in the world.
Rehabilitated criminal hackers who now face Internet criminals
These two passwords are part of the blacklist published Tuesday by the National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC), a UK government agency charged with preventing and combating computer crimes.
The list published by the NCSC includes 100,000 of the most commonly used passwords that have been violated by third parties in global cyber attacks.
The NCSC warns that the publication of these passwords is not a risk, since they are already in the public domain.
Because computer security should be more like a chameleon than a rhino
On the contrary, they say that this list is a way to create awareness on how attackers use illegally obtained passwords.
Furthermore, it can be a way to make cyber criminals more difficult and reduce the risk of network users e digital platforms
This is the list of the most insecure passwords in the world, according to NCSC:
1 2 3 4 5 6
1 2 3 4 5
If you wonder what it means "qwerty", which appears in third place, the answer is that it means nothing, it is only the order in which those letters appear from left to right on the computer keyboard.
password, in position 4, means "password" in English.
Then there are others who, although they have failed to get into the top 10, are just like "Creative": "1234567890", "123123", "000000", "iloveyou", "1234".
And they could not miss the classic "qqqqqqq", "Xxxxxx" or "aaaaa".
How to remove all personal information from your computer (and why formatting is not enough)
The list of worst passwords also appears very common terms like "superman" or "pokemon", or names like "carlos", "angela", "maria" or "gabriel", written in this way, without capitalization or accents.
There are other passwords that are also very insecure, but that don't appear in the list, like when the employees of the same company use the name of the company access personal or business platforms.
Here you can see the complete list of 100,000 passwords.
The NCSC warning is clear and simple: "If in this list you see a password you use, you should change it immediately".
The problem of password recycling
For NCSC, one of the biggest risks for people and companies is to use the same password for different platforms.
The password "123456", for example, has appeared 23 million times in the losses from which the listing was made.
Here are some NCSC tips for safer passwords:
Use three random words, which you can easily remember but which are not related to each other, such as something similar "I cafetrenpescado" or "murocamisanube".
It is almost impossible not to use the same password in multiple accounts, but in some cases it is highly recommended do not use a key already you have used. In cases like banks, archiving systems, e-mails or social networks, it is better not to repeat the passwords.
To increase security, the NCSC recommends the implementation of two-step authentication systems, that is, in addition to the password, the account requires a second access key, as a temporary code or security request.
We also recommend using a password manager, where it is possible to store several of them safely.
Cybersecurity experts suggest not using personal data or repeating the username in the password. It is also advisable combine letters, symbols, capital letters and numbers.

Wolfsburg (dpa) – After the highlight in the Europa League against Benfica Lisbon Eintracht Frankfurt wants to master the return to the Bundesliga everyday life successfully.
In the battle for the first-time entry into the Champions League of the fourth on Easter Monday (20.30 clock) must score points, the narrow cushion to be expanded to the competition. "This is a key game for us," said Eintracht coach Adi Hütter. But also the table race from Wolfsburg urgently needs a victory in the race for the international starting places.
STARTING POSITION: Eintracht have scooped 52 points into their account so far. However, the pursuers Borussia Mönchengladbach (51) and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (50) are close to Augsburg after the Frankfurt home defeat in the previous week against Augsburg. Hütter hopes that his protégés will not afford another slip-up. "The team has often enough proved that they are hungry and can fight back after losing," he said.
However, Wolfsburg is also doing a lot. Five points is behind the sixth place, which entitles to participate in the Europa League. A defeat would mean for the team of coach Bruno Labbadia, who won 2-1 in Frankfurt in the first round, probably the end of all international dreams.

Worldwide, prices have been rising rapidly for months. The Dax has gained a good 15 percent since the beginning of the year. At the same time, profit expectations are falling. That is, analysts are adjusting their earnings estimates week by week for companies in Germany, Europe and the US. In the Dax, for example, earnings forecasts for 24 companies declined in the past three months, most for Covestro and Thyssen-Krupp, but only for six groups did they rise, most for Linde. This trend warns for the further perspectives on the stock exchanges to caution.

Harley-Davidson has been caught in the midst of trade disputes between the United States and other regions of the world over the past year. It was not until the manufacturer of the legendary motorcycles met the import tariffs imposed by American President Donald Trump on steel and aluminum, followed by retaliatory tariffs with which the European Union responded. The EU-imposed tariffs on motorcycles imported from America rose from six to 31 percent, adding $ 2200 to the cost of each specimen, according to Harley-Davidson estimates. In 2021, they should even climb to 56 percent.
Harley-Davidson was forced to announce that his motorcycles sold in the EU will no longer be manufactured in the United States, but at one of his overseas locations. With it, the company drew the wrath of Trump, who threatened to tax it "more than ever" and claimed that many owners of a Harley wanted to boycott the company from now on.
Now, Harley-Davidson has presented its Q1 figures, and yet the tariff discussion is booming again. The company reported a significant decline in profits compared to the previous year, which was partly due to customs expenses. This in turn led Trump to a repeated tweet in which he focused his anger not on the company, but on the EU. Without mentioning that the duties imposed by Europe were a reaction to his steel and aluminum duties, he called them "so unfair to the United States" and announced, "We will fight back."
For the first quarter, Harley-Davidson reported a net profit of $ 127.9 million, down $ 47 million from a year ago. Of this difference, nearly $ 21 million was accounted for by customs duties. For the full year, CEO Matt Levatich said on Tuesday tariff expenditures of $ 100 million to $ 120 million previously. This figure refers only to import duties for motorcycles in the EU and China and does not take into account higher raw material costs due to tariffs on steel and aluminum. Levatich said retaliatory tariffs in Europe are the biggest burden on the company. He called them "regrettable", but at the same time pointed to the importance of the European market for Harley-Davidson.
First electric motorcycle announced
Despite the burden of customs duties, Harley-Davidson's overall numbers were slightly better than expected, even though the company once again reported a decline in sales and also sold fewer motorcycles. Revenue fell 12 percent year-over-year to just under $ 1.2 billion, slightly ahead of analyst expectations. The number of delivered motorcycles fell by eight percent to around 59,000, which, however, exceeded the forecast that Harley-Davidson itself had given three months ago. Earnings per share before special items of 98 cents were 16 cents better than expected.
Harley-Davidson saw sales down in all regions of the world. In the American home market, sales fell by more than four percent, in Europe, the minus was less than one percent. Harley-Davidson is currently trying to rejuvenate its product range and has announced a slew of new models over the coming years.
Later this year, the company's first electric motorcycle, known as the "Livewire", is due to be released. The machine can be pre-ordered for a few days in Germany, it has a starting price of almost 33,000 euros. The company also ventures into new segments. In March, it announced the purchase of Stacyc, a manufacturer of electric bicycles for children. The share price of Harley-Davidson was slightly higher on Tuesday afternoon.

Two policemen wanted to drive a 23-year-old, who had previously rioted in a police station, home – but then let him get out in a parking lot because they were called to a mission. A little later, the man was hit and mortally wounded.
The police charged with negligent homicide in the case have now been acquitted by the Oldenburg district court. The public prosecutor's office had accused the officials of contributing to the accidental death of the man. According to the indictment, the police had not sufficiently assured whether the man was still able to orient.
The Chamber saw it differently, as a court spokesman said. It had not been apparent that the man was helpless.
The prosecution had demanded a fine for both defendants, the defense pleaded for acquittal. The verdict is not yet legally binding.
The federal case supports the libel and false light of the lawyer Tina Glandian for having said, among other things, that the brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo attacked the "Empire" actor and treated steroids, and that Abimbola he had sex with the actor.
The cause also appoints Mark Geragos, head of the company that employs Glandian. CNN is contacting lawyers to respond.
"In short, Mr. Smollett used his influence as a wealthy actor to influence the plaintiffs, who were in a subordinate relationship with him and aspired to" make it "in Hollywood," says the lawsuit. "He wanted his employer and the public to notice him and appreciate him as a black, openly successful gay actor, so Mr. Smollett directed every aspect of the attack, including the position and the noose."
Attorney Gloria Schmidt said that the Osundairos, who had appeared in "Empire", simply thought they were helping Smollett and were made scapegoats after Smollett's ploy was discovered.
"He was asked to do something by a trusted friend, and at the end of the day that friend betrayed this trust," he told reporters.
The Osundairo brothers collaborated with the authorities, testifying before a grand jury, before Smollett was accused of numerous crimes of crime that accused the actor of deceiving the Chicago police into believing that he had been the target of a hate crime.
Subsequently the prosecutors abandoned the charges against Smollett, sparking a cry. The lawsuit claims that after the charges were dropped, Glandian continued to advance the narrative that Smollett had been attacked and slandered the brothers. Geragos is also accused of advancing the narrative and stating that the Osundairo brothers have lied to the police, the lawsuit says.
Rather than celebrating the deletion of their client by an offense, the lawsuit says that Geragos and Glandian "doubled, stating not simply that Mr. Smollett was a totally innocent victim, but that (among other accusations) the plaintiffs unequivocally led a criminal homophobic, racist, and a violent attack on Mr. Smollett. The defendants made these comments knowing that they were not true to distract from Mr. Smollett's farce. "
The lawsuit continues: "Ms. Glandian insisted that Mr. Smollett was innocent in making a false police report and falsely added that plaintiffs have criminally attacked Mr. Smollett … These statements were made unnecessarily in the national media for to advance Mr. Smollett and the lady. The reputation and fame of the high-cost Glandian for the plaintiffs. "
The brothers had difficulty finding a job, said lawyer Greg Kulis. Their activity in the field of health and education suffered due to accusations that they committed a hate crime and sold steroids, which they deny, and Abimbola Osundairo, who is heterosexual, suffered damage to his reputation in a Nigerian community that disapproves of much on being gay, the brothers' legal team said. They have also been harassed by paparazzi and journalists, Schmidt said.
The lawsuit requires a jury trial, compensatory and punitive damages and legal fees.
"People questioned what happened in Cook County," Kulis said, referring to the widespread demand for answers that broke out after the fall of Smollett's allegations. "The answers will be revealed to the federal court".

Berlin – Because of acute forest fire danger prevails in many regions of Germany now the highest warning level. The Ministry of the Environment in Brandenburg now also calls nationwide the level 5 for the state. At Bleiloch Reservoir in Thuringia forces fight against a huge fire. According to the authorities, a forest area is on fire on around 13 hectares. District Administrator Thomas Fügmann exclaimed the catastrophe in the afternoon. The first fire that broke out on Easter Sunday was already considered extinguished, but has since flared up again in several places.
In the second episode of the final season of “Game of Thrones,” there's a very specific scene with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams, 22) who has caused a stir among fans. When the actress first got the script in her hand, she even thought that the whole thing was just a joke of the makers. If you want to know more, warned about spoilers.
Sophie Turner called immediately
As fans can already imagine, this is exactly the scene in which Arya loses her innocence on Gendry (Joe Dempsie, 31). Both Williams and her colleague Sophie Turner (23), who plays Arya's sister Sansa, got the script for the last season at about the same time. “I called Maisie and asked, 'Have you read it yet?'”, Turner recalls talking to Entertainment Weekly. But Williams was not ready yet and Turner urged her to immediately jump to the appropriate place in the script.
“At first, I thought it was a joke,” Williams recalls. Eventually, showrunners David Benioff (48) and Dan Weiss (42) were known to have previously performed a similar scripting strike with Jon Snow actor Kit Harington (32). “Yo, good joke,” she thought. But when the two said that the love scene was indeed planned, “Oh, f * ck” had been the only thing that had left her lips, Williams continued.
The seriousness of the situation Williams became aware of when the actors first read the scene together. Among other things, she could only remember that she absolutely had to go to the gym. The whole thing was a bit strange for everyone, because Williams grew up with “Game of Thrones”. Now she is 22, but when the series started, she was just 11 years old. However, Benioff and Weiss told her that she could “show as much or as little as she wanted.”
Dempsie also thought it was strange
“For me it's a bit strange, of course, because I've known Maisie since she was eleven or twelve,” explains Gendry actor Dempsie. “At the same time, I do not want to be patronizing to Maisie – she's a 20-year-old woman, so we just had a lot of fun with it.”
Williams found the scene very important to her character, Arya, because she has a “very human relationship” with Gendry. “This is something she's been shying away from, an emotion she's never really seen.” The love scene shows the human side of Arya, which she had so often suppressed in the history of the series. It was a moment for Arya to say, “We're probably going to die tomorrow, but I want to know what it feels like before I die.”
