Emma Watson Explains Why No More Selfies With Fans

The former Harry Potter movies’ star, Emma Watson, has revealed why she doesn’t take pictures with fans anymore. Watson also referred to her struggles with self-doubt and on having a normal life when her Hermione’s days were reaching the end.
 
“I’ve been doing this since I was a child, which has made me thought, ‘is this a fit for me? I don’t know if this will all work out,” she said in an interview. “But as time goes on, I’ve thought it over, and I think everything is well.”
 

 
It must be hard having this kind of life, and more for Watson, who tried to change things a little bit back in 2009 when he attended to Brown University. Back in the days, Emma even thought about quitting acting, due to her fame troubles. “It started getting to the point where I realized that there was no turning back. If I wanted to pursue something else, now this would be the best time for that,” she shared.
 
There are a lot of troubles in this world, and she has seen them very close. That’s the main reason why she doesn’t take selfies with fans (besides premieres and red carpet events).
 

 
“When someone snaps a photo of me and then posts it on social media, within seconds that information of where I am gets leaked onto the internet. Now they can quickly identify who I am, by what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I don’t like that at all, it makes me easily trackable,” said Emma.
 
However, she had made clear that there’s no problem if fans have a question about Harry Potter. Emma also says that she can talk with fans for a while, but remarking that pictures are not allowed. I’ll answer, ‘We can talk, and I’ll answer any and every Harry Potter related question, but I don’t take a photo.’ I’m more choosy about how I interact with my fans. But there are exceptions to the rule; I don’t say no to children.”
 
This seems like the best choice to her, seeing his past and the events she has gone through during all her years as an actress. So, who can blame Emma? I’m pretty sure that absolutely nobody.

Bill Gates: “Robots Should Pay Taxes”

Bill Gates, known as one of the greatest inventors of our times, has surprised a lot of people after stating that robots that “steal human jobs” should pay taxes in an interview past Friday.
 
Gates, as we said, surprised a lot of people with his declarations, where he rants about the possibilities that robot taxes could bring to the country. He told Quartz that robot taxes might fund projects related to charity for elderly or even help kids to get into school.
 
“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed, and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things,” said Gates. “If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”
 

 
It is interesting that Bill Gates says this since he is the co-founder of Microsoft, one of the biggest companies in the world. A company that curiously manufactures computers and devices that are just robots at the end, so, you can imagine how much Bill would owe in taxes if we say that his creations have helped a lot of company bosses to increase the labor-saving efficiency throughout these years.
 
“Exactly how you’d do it, measure it, you know, it’s interesting for people to start talking about now,” Bill said. “Some of it can come from the profits that are generated by the labor-saving efficiency there. Some of it can come directly in some robot tax. I don’t think the robot companies are going to be outraged that there might be a tax. It’s OK.”
 

 
Maybe his company won’t be outraged by this, but most of them will surely are. If we start saying that businesses have to pay more taxes, then this is the biggest problem that business owners have to face at the time of paying salaries. This is the prime factor that leads those bosses to select machines over people, instead of helping people, this practice will only boost the hardship of most workers.
 
Robots already “stole” millions of jobs. Fortunately, they have been doing it for years, especially in the first world. Computers are robots, fax machines are robots, forage harvesters are robots, but until know, nobody had the nerve to talk about taxes for robots. It had to come from someone who’s already a billionaire.
