On Tech Industry Divorces: How They Should Not Have Happened and What Could Have Been

On the Wall Street Journal, today, Paul Ziobro, updated an article, Bill and Melinda Gates to Divorce After 27 Years. Ziobro headlined his article this way: Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bills Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates, who is co-chair of their philanthropic foundation, are ending their 27-year marriage, according to a statement posted on both their verified Twitter accounts (link)

Divorce is Often Happening in the Tech Industry’s Leadership

Furthermore, Ziobro mentioned the official divorce petition was filed by this couple on May 3, 2021 in King County Superior Court within Washington state (Ziobro, 2021). They have some asset separation agreement with their division in mind. Next, Bill and Melinda Gates are parents to 3 children. Also, this couple formed the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, together: it is a billion-dollar charity Bill and Melinda Gates have invested their fortune for needy communities. 

Other billionaire technology couples including Google’s Sergey Brin and Anne Wojcicki, (link) and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie Scott, have divorced. But in American society, there is a well known connection between marriage and responsibility. Take a brief look at this Prager University lesson:

The Legendary Light Bearing Savior

According to legend, Jesus of Nazareth, called the Christ, claimed the Law and the Prophets were totally against divorce. Against a man giving his wife a writing of divorcement, probably Matthew wrote Jesus said, “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery” (KJV, Matthew 5:32). Thus, divorce must not be a matter of convenience or expedience, but a last resort against poverty, something loving pleasure (fornication’s purpose, Peter Singer and John Piper) brings on a household. 

This is about a sense of decency.

In contrast to contemporary senses of decency, I believe this: as Jesus Christ said, unless the reason for a marriage dispute is a wife’s fornication, or by a husband’s own measurement, his own fornication, the marriage dispute ought to end with the marriage intact. This is for social reasons, 1st of all: marriage often protects family members from emotional and intellectual development going wrong. But unfortunately, with fornication so rampant in society, today, going wrong is seen as a niche. There is also the financial defense: poverty and many of its challenges are directly strategized against during marriage by the husband and wife, and this is passed to the next generation. But technology leaders have added incentives for continuing their marriages due to good pay and low unemployment: philanthropic legacies and generational employment. In philanthropy, entire communities make efforts to improve social conditions like raising a child. And in a company where leaders have their children work their ways up the ranks, fairly, we can look forward to families staying safe and flourishing even in tough times due to middle class and higher wealth securities. 

Image is everything.

In almost every case, divorce is the opposite of financial wisdom: it brings uncertainty, confusion, and unnecessary stress on a family. Readers, if you ever want to marry, do not do it because of convenience or expedience, nor end it for these reasons. For each reader, your significant other shall thank you.

Cyber Security: The New Digital Frontier, but the Same Spirit Battle

                Considering Holy Security When Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, was preaching the good word, he saw the purpose of protecting the assets of a person as ultimately important. Paul said, “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” ( New International Version , Eph 6:11-17). Paul said to protect against evil with ABBA's word. In my view, this means applying the spirituality of holy defense to the life of an individual in any place and time. In contemporary times, cybersecurity can be a digital representation of the principalities of holiness effectively protecting against the sins of humanity. Cyber Security Hygiene Larry Magid shared insights about cyber security. Magid said, “So your cyber hygiene isn’t just about protecting you, it’s about protecting all of us” (Magid, 2014). The woman should protect her own interests and the interests of those who she works with along with her clients because true security i

On Computer Organization and Architecture: the Hierarchy

On, Abirami Thangavel wrote Superscalar & VLIW Architectures: Characteristics, Limitations & Functions. Regarding parallel architectures, superscalar and VLIW, Thangavel wrote: In computer architecture, parallel processing refers to processing of multiple instructions of a program by distributing them among multiple processors. Superscalar and Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) are parallel architectural models based on Flynn's Taxonomy. Both superscalar and VLIW architectures are capable of executing multiple instructions at one cycle. Each uses a different method for instruction scheduling. While superscalar processors execute instructions dynamically, VLIW uses static scheduling of program instructions.[1] Thangavel was saying this: on Flynn’s Taxonomy, superscalar and VLIW architectures are based, but they have differences. Therefore, on entity priorities, entities have different descriptive capabilities. As follows, a superscalar processor is this: a microproc

Resuming Pace: I Shall Not Be Pursuing a Second Bachelor's Degree

On May the 5th, 2021, I used a strong position deciding my pursuit of a second Bachelor’s degree: my choice was the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC, link ), but I decided to resume my Master’s program, by itself.  Let me explain with Scripture: the Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Matthew, specifically. In ancient times, records of a man called Jesus the Christ were written. Among these records was a Gospel, According to Matthew, of Jesus Christ. According to legend, Jesus Christ stated, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (KJV, Matthew 5:5, link ).” Jesus the Christ was saying those who are submissive shall inherit the earth rather than those who are brash.  In my attempt at starting a second Bachelor’s program, I eventually realized I had been too pushy: I wanted the May 19th start date, and I wanted the admission process expedited, I wanted ease of access between majors, I wanted advantages to the application process because of what UMGC (I was gra
