5 Richest Women in the World

When you look at the list of the richest people in the world, it tends to be male-dominated. In fact, the 10 richest people in the world are all men, but there are plenty of women who are still in the top 100. Out of those women, there are five that truly stand out as being the wealthiest, and here are their details.

Miriam Adelson

Born Miriam Farbstein on October 10, 1945, in Tel Aviv, Miriam Adelson grew up in the city that her parents fled to from Poland during the beginning of World War II and the Holocaust. Adelson became a doctor and married fellow doctor Ariel Ochshorn. After the couple divorced in 1980, she made her way to New York City where she continued her studies. It was at this time that she met Sheldon Adelson.

Sheldon Adelson was a Boston-born businessman who made most of his money in Las Vegas as he founded the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. He also owned the Las Vegas Review-Journal prior to his death in 2021. The couple had just celebrated 20 years of marriage at the time of his death, and she inherited the businesses that her husband owned. This launched her into fifth place of richest women in the world with a net worth of over $38 billion.

Julia Koch

Julia Koch was already doing well for herself long before she had begun a relationship with one of the richest men in the world. Her parents operated a clothing store in Arkansas and after she graduated from college, she moved to New York City where she worked in the fashion industry as both a model and a fashion designer. Born as Julia Flesher, she had rubbed elbows with higher-ups, including former First Lady Nancy Reagan.

In 1991, she met David Koch, and though the two didn’t get along that great in the first meeting, they ended up dating in the same year and the couple married in 1996. David had been the Vice President of Koch Industries, joining the family company in 1970. With a revenue of over $125 billion, Koch Industries is a massive conglomerate. David owned 42 percent of the business, and upon his passing in 2019, Julia Koch took his place in the business and amassed a net worth of over $46 billion.

MacKenzie Scott

MacKenzie Scott had wanted to be a writer while she was growing up and displayed her skills in high school so well that she was able to get accepted into the prestigious Princeton University. In 1992, Scott obtained her bachelor’s degree and, like the previous two women on the list, moved to New York City. It was there that she met Jeff Bezos, and the two worked in finance before moving to Seattle.

Scott was instrumental in starting Amazon alongside Bezos after the two got married in 1993 but was less of a figurehead as she wanted to raise a family and focus on writing during the mid-1990s. Scott reemerged in the public eye in 2019 when it was announced that she and Bezos had filed for divorce after 26 years of marriage. The divorce settlement instantly made her one of the richest people in the world with a net worth of over $50 billion.

Alice Walton

The top two richest women in the world were born into extremely wealthy families, with the first being Alice Walton, who was born in Newport, Arkansas on October 7, 1949. Walton is the only daughter of the late Sam and Helen Walton, the founders of Walmart. Along with brothers Rob, John, and Jim, Alice Walton inherited a massive fortune when her father passed away in April 1992.

During her career, Walton hasn’t been too involved in the operations of Walmart or Sam’s Club, but she has kept very busy. Walton founded her own investment company in 1988 that lasted for a decade before shuttering. She’s also been an avid art collector and has been involved in healthcare and plenty of philanthropy. With a net worth of over $60 billion, she’s the second-richest woman in the world.

Françoise Bettencourt Meyers

With a net worth of over $70 billion, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers takes the mantle of the world’s richest woman. Meyers is the only child of Liliane Bettencourt, who was the only child of Eugene Schueller. Schueller was the founder of L’Oreal, a personal care company that started in 1909 and now has assets of well over $40 billion. With the line of succession, Meyers became the richest woman in 2017 after Liliane Bettencourt’s passing.

The reason that the assets of L’Oreal are so much lower than Meyers’s net worth is that she also inherited a vast fortune from her family’s investments in the process. She still owns one-third of the company, and her net worth has only risen over the years to put her well ahead of any woman and nearly into the top 10 overall.

5 Genuine Life Lessons Straight From Stand-Up Comedy Routines

When we watch our favorite stand-up comedians either on our screens or in person, we typically expect to laugh until our sides hurt. However, not everything is just one punchline after another with a lot of comedians. There are some genuine life lessons that we can learn either about ourselves or society as a whole. From talking about the world’s economic state to mental health, comedians haven’t been afraid to let their voices be heard.

Let’s take a look at some of those life lessons that we’ve learned from stand-up comedians over the years that we may not have given too much thought to at first. Once you go back and watch some of these sets, you might have a higher appreciation for just how in-depth comedy can truly be.

Robin Williams on Being Yourself

Most of us go through life afraid to express our true selves to the world. We all feel this need to conform so that people will like us, give us better job opportunities, or just blend in with the general public. Deep down, there’s that little part of us that wants to let loose and be zany without any regard for how those around us feel about it. Nobody was better at embracing that part of themselves quite like Robin Williams.

The stand-up comedian who would go on to become an acting icon thanks to movies including “Mrs. Doubtfire”, “Good Will Hunting”, and “Good Morning, Vietnam” had this to say about being yourself: “You’ve got to be crazy, it’s too late to be sane. You’re only given a little spark of madness, and if you lose that, you’re nothing. Don’t. From me to you, don’t ever lose that because it keeps you alive…That’s my only love: crazy.” 

George Carlin on Wealth Inequality

George Carlin was well known for some of his acting roles in films including “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures”, “Dogma”, and “Cars”, but it was through stand-up comedy that he really shined. Early on in his career, Carlin wasn’t really part of the counter-culture, but during the 1970s and 1980s, he became a go-to for political commentary. This was especially true when it came to wealth inequality and how lower-income people are being held down.

“There’s a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed,” Carlin said. “It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got, because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now…the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions…They’ll get it all from you soon or later ‘cause they own this (expletive) place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.”

Bo Burnham on Mental Health

When YouTube got kicked off in the mid-2000s, it presented an opportunity for otherwise unknown people to capture overnight fame. One of those people that cashed in during the early days of YouTube was Bo Burnham, who has gone on to become one of the biggest names in comedy. Burnham got into fame at a young age, and it wasn’t always an easy transition to go from a famous teen to an adult that’s constantly asked what his next project is going to be.

During his special “Inside”, Burnham prefaced a song by saying that he quit performing live comedy because he was having on-stage panic attacks. “Which is not a great place to have them,” he said. “So I quit. And I didn’t perform for five years, and I spent that time trying to improve myself mentally. And you know what? I did. I got better.” 

Craig Ferguson on Self-Reflection

Scottish comedian Craig Ferguson got a big opportunity in the United States during the 1990s when he became part of the cast of the hit series “The Drew Carey Show”. After the show’s conclusion in 2004, Ferguson was tabbed to host “The Late Late Show” on CBS which followed David Letterman’s program. Throughout his time, Ferguson has talked about his alcohol use, divorces, and has done a lot of self-reflecting in his stand-up sets.

Many admire Ferguson because of how he’s grown as a person and has truly shown his desire to help others. In one of the more prominent examples, Ferguson has said that people need to do more self-reflection in the era of smartphones in which we live. “People have always been a**holes,” Ferguson said. “What happens is the technology is just faster…ask yourself before you say anything, which is ‘Does this need to be said? Does this need to be said by me? Does this need to be said by me now?’…Three f***ing marriages it took me to learn that.”

Richard Pryor on Thinking

Richard Pryor is frequently ranked among the best stand-up comedians in history and had many profound quotes during his sets. It’s hard to narrow it down to just one.

A quote that really stands out, though, is “I believe the ability to think is blessed. If you can think about a situation, you can deal with it. The big struggle is to keep your head clear enough to think.” It wasn’t always easy for a guy like Pryor, who was a megastar during his peak. 

5 Famous People Obsessed with Crossword Puzzles and Why They Love Them

One of the more common hobbies that you’ll find worldwide is the daily crossword puzzle. It’s estimated that more than 50 million people play crossword puzzles each day, and there is a wide variety to pick from. Between the USA Today, Washington Post, New York Times, and many others, people can play the old-school way with pen and paper or online.

With such a wide net of players, there was always bound to be some famous people who avidly play crossword puzzles. Here are five famous people who are obsessed with crossword puzzles and talking about why they love them.

Jesse Eisenberg

New York City native Jesse Eisenberg got his acting career starting while he was a teenager in the late 1990s, and became a star in the late 2000s thanks to his roles in films like “Zombieland” and “The Social Network”. He then went on to star in blockbusters like “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, playing legendary villain Lex Luthor.

Eisenberg has used crossword puzzles to help him calm down and prepare for roles as it helps him get more in touch with other members of the pop culture world. Eisenberg was involved in the 75th-anniversary celebration of the New York Times crossword puzzle, as well, creating his own puzzle. “I initially created this puzzle thinking that it would be released around Thanksgiving,” he said. “As a nod to my family, vegetarians who celebrate ThanksLiving, I thought we would create a puzzle for vegan dinner options.”

Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton served as the Governor of Arkansas from 1983 until 1992, and in that final year launched his campaign to become the third-youngest President in United States history. Clinton unseated George H.W. Bush from the White House and assumed the office for two terms. While Clinton didn’t receive much downtime while being the leader of the free world, he did spend much of that free time filling out crossword puzzles.

“Half the time I do these things just to see what people are thinking about,” Clinton said, hoping that crosswords would keep his finger on the pulse of society. “Sometimes you have to go at a problem the way I go at a complicated crossword puzzle,” he added. “You start with what you know the answer to, and then you build on it. A lot of complex problems are like that.” Clinton has even authored crossword puzzles over the years for the New York Times, perhaps the most well-known publication crossword puzzle.

John Lithgow

A highly-decorated actor, John Lithgow started his career on Broadway in the early 1970s and never looked back. Showing off a wide range of skills from comedies like “3rd Rock From the Sun” to dramas like “The Crown”, Lithgow has done it all.

Lithgow has been playing crossword puzzles for many years and even collaborated with the New York Times to create a puzzle with veteran constructor Brendan Emmett Quigley. Lithgow said that it was “exhilarating.” He added that it was “a lot of fun” and that you “learn the mysteries of crossword puzzle construction.” Lithgow was able to display his “pride and joy” live on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, even including the show as one of his clues in the puzzle.

Ken Burns

Not all documentary filmmakers are well known, but Ken Burns is one of those that’s a household name. Between his love for the sport of baseball and wars around the world, Burns has released some of the most celebrated documentaries of all time. He’s received Grammy Awards, Emmy Awards, and many others over his illustrious career.

Burns mentioned that he still plays crossword puzzles on a daily basis, saying that he sticks to the New York Times and never misses one whether it be in print or online. He even keeps track of his times, saying that on Saturdays he hopes to accomplish the puzzle within 15 minutes (the day with the easiest puzzles) while some of the more difficult puzzles can take around 25. 

Lisa Loeb

Lisa Loeb burst onto the music scene in the mid-1990s thanks to the release of her song “Stay (I Missed You)” which became the number-one song in the United States. She released several successful subsequent albums and branched out her career into other forms of entertainment including acting and hosting, landing a regular spot on SiriusXM’s 90s on 9 satellite radio station.

While Loeb didn’t really play crossword puzzles in the 1990s, she started doing it much more after her children were more grown up and she had downtime on tour. After becoming a more avid crossword player, Loeb was tabbed to help create a puzzle for the New York Times and said that making the puzzle was a lot like writing a song. “When you collaborate, you have certain ideas which are the structure, like the ‘posts’ of the house that keep it all together…but then just the laughter and the joking and the side conversation that you have when you’re coming up with ideas and what’s important to you…it felt like writing a song.”

Why Catwoman is More Than Just a Femme Fatale

While comic books were originally a heavily male-dominated industry, there have been plenty of popular female characters throughout the years. One of the first that comes to mind for any comic book fan is Selina Kyler, a.k.a. Catwoman. Catwoman was introduced in the very first Batman comic book issue and has been a staple of the franchise ever since.

Along the way, there have been several on-screen adaptations showing Catwoman with varying types of demeanors. Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt played Catwoman in the original television series, while actresses including Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway have played the character more recently on the big screen.

Catwoman has been seen as a villain in some instances, as well as a hero. No matter how you see Catwoman, she’s certainly one of the more complex characters throughout comic book history. She’s more than just a femme fatale that’s used as a setpiece for Batman’s adventures, too. Let’s take a look at why Catwoman is much more, and why she’s become a popular individual character in her own right.

The Good Side

From the outside-looking-in, Catwoman can appear to be one of the “bad guys” in the Batman universe. After all, she’s an expert burglar and tends to fight off Batman whenever he tries to foil her heists. However, Selina Kyle has proven to be someone who isn’t motivated by evil, as she doesn’t intentionally try to hurt anyone, and she certainly never sets out to kill anyone like many of the other Batman villains.

Because of this, Batman was always able to see the good in Catwoman. She’s someone who acts on pure necessity rather than evil instincts. Creator Bob Kane said that this was intentional and that Selina was someone who was hard to understand fully, just like a cat, though his full explanation (in his own words) was a bit “chauvinistic.” Once Catwoman’ is developed more throughout the series, we see that there is a lot of good in her character.


The early iterations of Catwoman focused more on Catwoman being a femme fatale and a romantic interest for Batman. This would remain the constant for the first couple of decades of Catwoman’s history but eventually changed during the 1980s. It was then that Catwoman was established as someone with a backstory that was much deeper. Frank Miller wrote Catwoman as someone who worked as a “lady of the night” that became a burglar after seeing Batman, but that was soon scrapped.

Catwoman’s backstory has been changed several times depending on the generation and Batman series that she’s part of, though there are some constants that remain. Catwoman is often seen with a background in which she was orphaned, abused, and left out in the streets. This is the main inspiration as to why she’s a burglar, as Catwoman has used her athletic prowess as a way to make ends meet, stealing high-valued jewels and money without inciting chaos like the Joker.


Though Catwoman isn’t a model citizen, there’s one thing that’s for certain, and it’s that she’s as independent as anyone that you’ll meet. Even though Batman was also orphaned when he was a child like Catwoman, he still had a support system around him that helped position him into being perhaps the most powerful person in Gotham City.

Catwoman, on the other hand, didn’t get that kind of support as she grew up. There was no Alfred or Lucius, so she relied entirely on herself to make ends meet. That type of independence, even if it was illegal, endeared a lot of people to the character. After all, Batman breaks the rules all the time by being a vigilante and people idolize him, so why shouldn’t Catwoman get a break when she simply is trying to keep herself alive?

There are a lot of people who didn’t grow up with a support system and admire the type of independence that Selina Kyle has shown throughout all adaptations. Catwoman also tends to not ally herself with factions around Gotham City, or even Batman for too long, as she is independent and likes to keep it that way.


There are a lot of Batman villains that simply don’t have a soul or a fiber of well-meaning in their bodies. You think of villains like the Joker who just want chaos and to hurt as many people as possible, but the opposite is true for Catwoman. There have been many instances when Catwoman has been shown to be perhaps the most compassionate and caring person in the Batman universe.

One of the more prominent examples comes from “Batman Vol. 3” when Catwoman admitted to killing more than 230 people after the orphanage burned down. It turned out that she didn’t do it at all, and was simply covering for Holly Robinson, her friend and protege who would end up becoming the next Catwoman. Needless to say, Catwoman may be hardened and talented, but she’s not the dangerous criminal that Gotham City thinks she is.
