Why is Jack Dorsey No 36?

As if it weren't enough to change the very way in which we exchange and receive information, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey is intent on changing the way we exchange goods too. After developing one of the most transformative ideas of the past 30 years, Dorsey stepped down as CEO of Twitter in 2008 and started Square, a company that allows people to make debit and credit payments using their phones, thanks to a portable card reader that attaches to the headphone jack. And with Square’s valuation soaring to $1 billion this year, Dorsey also resumed a more active role at Twitter -- as executive chairman -- making him one of the most powerful (and busiest) men in Silicon Valley.

Why is Michael Bloomberg No 37?

Michael Bloomberg is only the fourth mayor this century to be elected for three consecutive terms and helped New York City regain its footing post-9/11 and almost single-handedly revamped its sagging school system. But after botching the response to last year’s paralyzing blizzard and the increasing anxieties about the city’s economic prospects, Mayor Bloomberg encountered his lowest approval ratings in six years. But like any good New Yorker, Bloomberg bounced back. Although he's received criticism for the police response to the Occupy Wall Street movement, his polls are up again. Twelve more years! Twelve more years!

Why is Dana White No 38?

Just when we thought the UFC couldn’t get any bigger, Dana White had to go ahead and prove us all wrong -- again. In what White himself deemed the biggest moment of his career, the charismatic president helped to legalize MMA in Toronto, which helped set the stage for UFC 129 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, an event that drew 55,000 fans and broke ratings records in what White insists is the UFC’s No. 1 television market on the planet. As if that wasn’t enough, White also inked a major broadcasting deal with FOX, which will help ensure that the UFC gets plenty of airtime on the network’s various subsidiary channels for years to come. White might never actually step into the ring himself, but, boy, does he know how to win.

Why is Dirk Nowitzki No 39?

A strange thing happened during the 2011 NBA finals: Basketball fans all across America got behind a quiet and mysterious German star with a history of choking in big games as he took on three American superstars who were loud, arrogant and downright explosive. In the end, Dirk Nowitzki and his Dallas Mavericks triumphed over Miami Heat’s big three -- LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh -- to the delight of everyone outside of South Beach. In what will go down as one of the greatest performances in NBA playoff history, Nowitzki, the valiant German, used a combination of lethal clutch-as-can-be shooting and sheer determination to defeat the evil Americans. How’s that for a role reversal?

Why is Matt Damon No 40?

Matt Damon was one of Barack Obama’s biggest supporters throughout his 2008 presidential campaign, but he has since jumped off the president’s bandwagon, becoming one of his most vocal celebrity critics. Does Damon think he can do a better job than the embattled leader? Michael Moore sure does. The lefty filmmaker has publicly urged the actor to run for office, and based on Damon’s recent caught-on-film criticisms of education in America, the Iraq war and taxes -- all as articulate as anything Obama has said all year -- the Oscar-winning actor might be up to the task. If not, he always has that whole movie star thing to fall back on.

Why is Julian Assange No 41?

Was Julian Assange the victim of a smear campaign? That was the question being asked after news broke earlier this year that the journalist was being extradited to Sweden to face accusations of sexual abuse. Assange has enemies in very high places after his whistle-blowing website, WikiLeaks, released thousands of sensitive documents online. Some hailed him as a revolutionary, others a terrorist. For much of the year, Assange was mired in a costly legal battle and a pending investigation by the U.S. State Department, and he drifted from public thought until, out of the blue, WikiLeaks published nearly 134,000 leaked diplomatic cables that could put thousands of people at risk. Suddenly the abuse charges are the least of his worries. Recently his memoir, Julian Assange – the Unauthorised Autobiography, was published in the UK.

Why is Tom Brady No 42?

It’s scary to think how close we came to missing out on watching another season of Tom Brady in his prime. The Patriots are once again Superbowl contenders, marching to the beat of Brady’s drum. When Brady, who's the current league leader in passing yards, is not on the field carving up defenses with his trademark precision passing, the three-time Superbowl champion is busy being married to the most famous supermodel in the world, Gisele Bundchen. But even Brady gave Bundchen a run for her money in the modeling department, with his latest ad for the Australian footwear company UGGS going viral online. Brady -- a proven winner on the field and off, if ever there was one.
