  • In July, Wealth-X released their 2019 report on which universities (both globally and in the US) have produced the most ultra-high net worth (UHNW) individuals, here defined as those with a net worth of $30 million or more.
  • Harvard University topped the list, with nearly 14,000 UHNW alumni; however, only 7% of them are women.
  • Boston University holds the distinction of having the most female UHNW alumni, with Northwestern University ranking second.

In July, Wealth-X released their findings on which US colleges have produced the most millionaires.

The study focused on those alumni deemed to be ultra-high net worth (UHNW) individuals, meaning those with fortunes of $30 million or more. The report analyzed the Wealth-X database of the world’s wealthiest people and used Wealth-X’s Wealth and Investable Assets Model to estimate the number of UHNW alumni and their fortunes.

The report concluded that globally, the US tops the list of nations with the most universities producing UHNW graduates. The top institution, both globally and nationally, is Harvard, which was found to have about 13,650 UHNW alumni – over double the amount of Stanford and the University of Pennsylvania, which respectively ranked No. 2 and No. 3 on both the US and global lists.

However, out of Harvard’s estimated 13,650 UHNW alumni, only 7% of them are women, compared to Boston University, where women make up 12% of that school’s UHNW alumni.

In addition, the Wealth-X study found that while the majority of UHNW women on the list are considered to be “self-made,” more of them, compared to their male counterparts, obtained their wealth through inheritance, or a combination of inherited wealth and self-made efforts. For example, 43% New York University’s UHNW women inherited their wealth, compared to only 8% of that school’s UHNW men.

AMC Theatres is getting into the streaming business with a new on-demand service

AMC Theatres is getting into the streaming business with a new on-demand service

  • AMC Theatres has announced it is launching AMC Theatres On Demand, a new streaming service.
  • On Tuesday, around 2,000 titles from the biggest studios in Hollywood will be available to rent or buy on the chain’s site, mobile app, Roku, or smart TV apps.
  • It will cost around $3-$6 to rent titles and $10-$20 to buy them.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

AMC Theatres, the largest movie chain in the world, announced on Monday that it is getting into the on-demand streaming business.

AMC Theatres On Demand will be available on its website, mobile app, Roku, and smart TV apps beginning Tuesday and will feature at its launch around 2,000 titles to rent or buy through the deals it has made with major studios like Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, Sony, and Paramount.

It will cost around $3-$6 to rent titles and $10-$20 to buy them. That’s comparable to other on-demand streaming services.

Selections will range from new releases to catalogue titles from participating studios. New releases will be available the same time they are available digitally nationwide. Crucially, they will not be available while they are playing in theaters. Though in the past some studios have voiced interest in creating a premium on-demand window for popular movies, in which select titles would be available on demand before the traditional exclusive 90-day theatrical window has elapsed, those talks have since stopped. AMC Theatres On Demand will respect the window.

The chain has also made a cross-platform marketing partnership with AMC Networks. Through the deal, the libraries of AMC Networks’ IFC Films and RLJE Films will be available on the service beginning in late 2019.

This is the first time a US exhibitor has dipped into a business venture dedicated to the home. But to connect the service back to its theaters, members of the chain’s popular AMC Stubs loyalty program who use the on-demand service will earn points towards in-theater rewards.

You can rent or purchase titles at AMC’s website.

  • The Democratic National Committee is fighting to halt the spread of disinformation about Democratic candidates ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Politico reported.
  • In its fight against fake news, the party is using software to identify trending stories before they go viral, and asking third-party fact checkers to rebut them.
  • After debunking the story, they contact Facebook and ask for them to intervene to stop the post spreading to vast audiences.
  • The enhanced operation follows a series of fake viral stories in 2016 which likely damaged then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is waging a behind-the-scenes battle to stop the spread of disinformation about its 2020 presidential candidates, Politico reported Tuesday.

The DNC is reportedly desperate to avoid a repeat of the 2016 campaign, in which Russian hackers leaked thousands of emails from DNC servers and swamped social media with disinformation about then-candidate Hillary Clinton.

As one of a range of measures to combat disinformation, Politico reported that the DNC’s internal information security group – DNC Tech – is employing software called Trendolizer, which monitors social media for content on the brink of going viral.

If the content is a piece of disinformation about a 2020 Democrat, Politico reported that the DNC will flag it to the relevant campaign and recommend they run it past an independent fact-checker, such the Associated Press, Poynter or FactCheck.com.

The DNC will then alert Facebook to the disinformation spreading on its platform and the report debunking it, in the hope that Facebook will intervene to limit the story’s audience.

According to the report, individual campaigns have the responsibility for judging whether and how to hit back at disinformation.

The DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the report.

Social media platforms have come under pressure from lawmakers and regulators to halt the flow of disinformation on their platforms.

US intelligence chiefs have warned that countries including Russia, China, and Iran are gearing up to launch fake news campaigns in a bid to influence the 2020 election.

And experts at New York University have in a report warned that it’s not just foreign actors but domestic partisan operators behind the flow of fake news.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the leading Democratic contenders for the presidency, has criticised Facebook for allowing Trump campaign adverts with false or misleading claims to run on its platform.

‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ gives us Disney’s version of a ‘red wedding’ with an excellent Angelina Jolie

  • Warning: There are minor spoilers ahead for “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.”
  • The sequel to the 2014 hit revolves around an impending wedding for Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip.
  • The real scene-stealers of the film are Maleficent (Angelina Jolie), Phillips’ mother, Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer), and all of Maleficent’s stunning outfits.
  • Some of the forest creatures are a bit nightmarish and the film’s plot is fairly predictable.

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is action-packed and surprisingly funny, if a bit predictable at times.

Several years after the first film, Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip want nothing more than to get married. Unfortunately, their mothers Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and Queen Ingrith (Michelle Pfeiffer) rather start an all out war between humans and faeries before they let their children become betrothed.

The “Maleficent” sequel has the highs of “Avatar” as it travels into a mysterious fairy-filled world and the lows of George Lucas’ 2015 flop “Strange Magic.” Magic aside, it’s the hostility and brewing war between Jolie and Pfeiffer’s characters and their masterful performances that make the sequel worth a watch.

Why you should care: It’s the sequel to 2014’s hit “Maleficent” and Angelina Jolie’s first big onscreen appearance since 2015’s “By the Sea.”

Angelina Jolie doesn't miss a beat in her return to the big screen.

Jolie is back as Disney’s most iconic villain in another story where, it turns out, she’s really not the villain at all. She’s just misunderstood. Michelle Pfeiffer joins the cast this time around as Prince Phillips’ mother, Queen Ingrith, and Chiwetel Ejiofor plays a fellow Fey named Conall.

Do I need to watch the first film to understand the sequel? No.

If you don’t have time to rewatch the first film before seeing the sequel, don’t worry. Disney does was it does best by summarizing what you need to know about Maleficent and her relationship to Aurora and her missing parents pretty early in the film. By the film’s end, it actually ties pretty neatly into the first film.

What’s hot: The performances from Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, a “Game of Thrones”-like red wedding, and every costume Jolie’s Maleficent wears.

You’re not going to watch this sequel for the story of Prince Phillip and Aurora’s impending wedding. They’re two of the most boring, bland people in this entire movie. Michelle Pfeiffer’s Queen Ingrith boils Aurora down as someone who rules by running around the moors barefoot with flowers in her hair, a line that will make most of the adults who are taking their kids to theaters undoubtedly chuckle.

Queen Ingrith certainly isn't wrong about her assessment of Aurora.

Thank goodness for the addition of Pfeiffer as a conniving queen and Jolie’s return as the one to go toe-to-toe with her. Not only do they make this mostly unnecessary sequel bearable, but pretty good as you’re sucked into the brewing tension between the two mothers until it comes to a head in the film’s tremendous third act.

Jolie and Pfeiffer get most of the film's witty one liners. The tension between the two at this dinner party seen above makes for one of the film's most enjoyable scenes.

If you had told me going into “Mistress of Evil” that there would be a giant action sequence reminiscent of “Game of Thrones’s” killer red wedding, barricaded doors and all, I would have thought you were mistaken. That’s way too dark for Disney! But they pull it off for what are about the most enjoyable 20 minutes of the film. Queen Ingrith is essentially the film’s Cersei Lannister.

Jolie reminds you why she’s an Oscar winner. She livens up the film any time she’s on screen. Whether it’s for a mere one-liner or an entire scene, Jolie has the ability to make you fully focused not just on her delivery but engrosses the audience in how she responds to any scenario with the smallest movement in her eyes.

Sometimes her looks alone tell you everything you need to know about how Maleficent is feeling. This was a role Jolie was born to play.

Costume designer Ellen Mirojnick (“The Greatest Showman”) did an impressive job making Jolie’s scene-stealing looks. Though she also designed eight gorgeous dresses for Ingrith, fans will be talking about the red-carpet ready attire Jolie showed off. The actress looks absolutely stunning in every scene whether her hair is tucked away or wrapped around her face to make her look timeless. I’m expecting to see a lot of cosplay inspiration come from Maleficent’s looks alone.

The reveal of this Maleficent look from the trailers does not disappoint. It's only her second best look in the movie overall.

By the film’s end, you may have a new idea of who you want to dress up as for Halloween.

What’s not: Any of the magical forest creatures and pixies and a pretty predictable plot

Do you remember George Lucas’ Disney movie “Strange Magic”? It’s a 2015 animated musical released by the Disney after he sold Lucasfilm to them. It flopped at the box office and was filled with fairies and pixies and a bunch of other magical creatures that looked kind of creepy.

There's a reason most of the photos in the Disney press room for this movie are of Maleficent and not much else.

I couldn’t stop thinking about it any time sequences with any of the magical creatures in “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” came on screen. For a company that makes beautiful movies and has the capabilities to make animated rain look realistic in “Toy Story 4” and oceans look lifelike in “Frozen 2,” the VFX of the forest creatures in “Maleficent 2” are kind of crude and underwhelming.

Aurora’s three fairy godmothers are the strangest-looking of all and some of the most annoying characters Disney has ever put on screen. Even Maleficent gets fed up with them. A few minutes into the movie, Jolie tosses them away with a flick of her wrist. It’s probably why there’s so little of them in a franchise where they were originally some of the most beloved characters in the original.

Not even Maleficent can be bothered with these fairies in the sequel.

The biggest complaint some may have with “Maleficent 2” is that the plot is pretty predictable. It won’t take you long to figure out Pfeiffer is the film’s real villain. (Let’s be honest. If you watched the trailers and thought Pfeiffer wasn’t playing some sort of villain then you simply weren’t paying attention.) In the end, the film’s predictability didn’t bother me so much since the film delivered a few key surprises by its end.

Aside from the movie’s end, there are moments where Jolie soars through the sky with other creatures like herself. It truly feels like a moment out of Fox’s (now Disney-owned) “Avatar” when the Na’vi soar through the sky on banshees. It’s a fun moment, but fans could point to it as uninpired.

Overall: If you enjoyed the first “Maleficent,” you’ll like this. Tune in for Jolie and Pfeiffer.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton once again makes you feel compassion and empathy towards one of Disney’s darkest villains. Aurora and Prince Phillip’s wedding aside, “Mistress of Evil” puts a message of tolerance and peace between two warring nations front and center. A few dark moments during the film may scare little ones, but the sequel itself isn’t frightening.

If you’re a big Disney fan, there’s one nod to the end of the original 1959 animated film and the sequel has a satisfying and unexpected link to the first movie by its very end.

Grade: B

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is in theaters Friday. You can watch a trailer for the movie below.
