The richest 30-year-old on the planet has five times the net worth of the second wealthiest person under 40. It won’t come as a surprise that he — and three other people on the list — do or did work at Facebook. Six of the top 10 richest people under 40 made their fortunes in Silicon Valley, including Mark Zuckerberg, 30, co-founder of Facebook Inc. FB, -0.07%  , who is No. 1 on the list, according to private wealth consultancy Wealth-X. Elizabeth Holmes, 31, founder and chief executive of Theranos, a technology for diagnostic blood tests, is the wealthiest U.S. woman on the list. Only two people inherited their money. The Rolodex of the wealthiest young people on the planet comes on the back of Forbes magazine’s 2015 billionaire list, which had 290 new arrivals this year, bringing the total number of billionaires to 1,826. However, Evan Spiegel, 24, the youngest newcomer to the elite Forbes group and co-founder of instant-message service Snapchat, didn't make the Wealth-X list, even with a net worth of $1.5 billion.

Abdel Rahman el-Abnudi has died after a life struggle with illness, at age of 76 years old on Tuesday.EL-Abnudi was born in 1938, is a popular Egyptian poet, and more recently a children's books writer. He was one of a generation of poets who wrote their work in the Egyptian dialect rather than in Classical Arabic, the standard literary language. This literary stance was associated with a militant political engagement: Abnudi and other writers of this school sought to make their literary production part of the process of development and movement towards popular democracy in Egypt. He was formerly the husband of short movie director Attiyat El Abnoudy, but, presently married to Nehal Kamal and was the father of two children, Nour and Aya. One of his most famous works was Al-Mawt 'ala al-asfalt (Death on the Asphalt) that named in the top 100 African books of the 20th century at the 2001 Zimbabwe International Book Fair. More»

No steak. Check. No lobster. Check. In taking the #FoodBankNYCChallenge, Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t run afoul of proposed Missouri restrictions on how food-stamp money can be spent. Nor did she use any for cruise ships, movies or going swimming, which would violate rules that could soon take effect in Kansas. Patrow said through social media that she was taking the challenge and “walking in their shoes to see how far we get.” She hasn’t posted any updates on how she is doing. Still, her choices on how to spend $29 for a week of food raised plenty of eyebrows. Critics complained it was too healthy, not enough food or just another form of white privilege. And those seven limes! SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and what was previously called food stamps. It provides food assistance for nearly 1.8 million low-income New Yorkers including families, the elderly and the disabled, according to New York City’s Human Resources Administration. To her credit, Paltrow actually showed what the $29 could buy after being issued the challenge by celebrity chef Mario Batali, a board member of Food Bank for New York City and now the honorary chair. Batali took the challenge in 2012 and he and Paltrow are fellow foodies who road-tripped through Spain for a PBS food series. More»

Kanye West settled on Tuesday with a photographer who had sued him a over a scuffle in 2013, with the rapper agreeing to terms that include an apology to avoid a trial over the lawsuit. West, 37, settled the suit that celebrity attorney Gloria Allred had filed on behalf of Daniel Ramos, who was involved in an altercation with the Grammy-winning rapper outside of Los Angeles International Airport in July 2013. Allred did not reveal the terms of the settlement, but said one of the requirements included West apologizing to Ramos, which was captured in a photograph she put out with a statement on Tuesday. "We believe that this case sent an important message. Celebrities are not above the law, and they have no right to physically attack someone simply because they were asked a question," Allred said.

It has been one heck of a journey for Sinbad the ginger tomcat who travelled from Egypt to Britain. The miracle moggy was discovered on March 25 after he sneaked into the back of a lorry at the Alexandria port. He managed to get into a sealed container and sailed across the Mediterranean Sea on a ferry and took a road trip through Europe. Without any food or water, the eight-month-old puss survived and was heard meowing when the lorry arrived at the warehouse of Mediterranean Linen in Moreton-on-Lugg, Hereford. Staff were surprised to discover the stowaway according to Graham Monteath, managing director at Mediterranean Linens. The 56-year-old told The Telegraph: "We heard this screeching noise. I have never heard a cat make that noise before. One of the lads thought it was a baby. "I thought it could have been a buzzard trying to get into the warehouse because we do get lots of them around here. "I just turned round and thought 'good God', what is that?' Then this cat's head popped out of the door." Sinbad will now spend four months in quarantine at the RSPCA and the society's inspector Pippa Boyd said she had not discovered anything like Sinbad in her eight-year career. "They showed me the paperwork and the tag, and it did all match up. We thought maybe at customs someone might have opened it up, but they didn't. "He such a curious cat. He just seems to be wanting to be everywhere and see everything. I imagine they were loading and he just sneaked in." The RSPCA has started a fundraising appeal to cover the cost of his care. More»

Thirty years after Ricky Martin got his start in music in the Puerto Rican kids' group "Menudo," the Grammy-winning singer uses his music and celebrity to help fight against the trafficking of children. Fresh off a new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar," the 43-year-old Martin said he relishes getting in front of a crowd to talk about children forced into prostitution and pornography. "Not only in Puerto Rico, all over the world, here in the United States, huge numbers, when it comes to kids that are becoming slaves," Martin told Reuters in an interview this week. More»

Actress and media magnate Oprah Winfrey is selling antique furniture, paintings, prints, ceramics and memorabilia from her Chicago apartment next month to benefit her education foundation, the auction house running the sale said on Tuesday. The 571 lots in the Chicago sale on April 25 are mostly from her downtown condominium. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers said proceeds from the auction will go to The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, which supports her education academy for girls in South Africa. "She is an excellent collector, very well educated," Hindman said about Oprah. "She has lots of different interests and over the years she has collected all sorts of different things." The top lot in the sale is expected to a painting by American Impressionist artist Richard Miller called "Nude in Red Robe," which has a pre-sale estimate of $80,000 to $120,000. Various other paintings are expected to sell in the $20,000 to $40,000 range. Estimates for the total one-day sale and the complete catalog were not immediately available.
