The Chainsmokers Are Taking Over 2018!

The Chainsmokers have been flourishing in just this past year! Not only were they awarded Best Collaboration, Dance Artist of the Year, and Dance Album of the Year by Iheartradio, they were also named number ONE on Billboard Dance 100 Artists of 2018 thanks to their newest single “Sick Boy”. This is huge since the artists had fought to get their music on DJ Mag’s Top 100 the year before. That was only a few months after their single You Owe Me came in at number four on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. The video had 34 million views in under a month and is catching up to their most viewed single “Closer” which was released about a year before and is now at 2 billion views. The announcement was made the same month that they released one of their newer singles “everybody hates me” on March 16th. That same month they decided to put haters to bed and fulfill their dream of headlining in Miami at The Ultra Music Festival where they played six new songs that we can only assume will be on their upcoming album. The performance spiked Spotify views reaching the billions, only 2 other artists have ever managed to reach those numbers on more than one song.

The EDM/Pop duo has been blowing up recently after the announcement of their newest album, “Somebody”, which will be released in January, 2019. That’s only one year after announcing the beginning of their contract with Wynn Nightlife stating that they would only be using XS nightclubs in Las Vegas and Encore Beach Club for performances until 2019.Their most recent single named after their upcoming album, “Somebody”, was just released raking in about 350 thousand views along with a sped up tutorial of how they actually made the song. The boys also promised to show an in depth tutorial of how they created “Somebody.” The Chainsmokers are breaking barriers between genres of music while showing kids to be their most authentic selves, definitely keep an eye out for these two!

Before working at the bank, he was playing football for Palmeiras but gave up that dream to get into the banking industry. He actually got the job because his father was a long time client and was able to get him the job by using his relationship with the manager.

Lazari Junior talked about how he was chosen for the job after taking a simple test and never though he would be president. He just saw an opportunity to improve his situation and took it. He also talked about how he had plenty of time working to get retirement but didn’t actually need it.

The entire process of choosing a new president for the bank started in October. This is when Lázaro de Mello Brandão stepped down from the bank’s Board of Directors. At this time, Luiz Carlos Trabuco moved up into the presidency. Lazari Junior talked about wanting to ensure that he continued doing the same good work that Lázaro de Mello Brandão and Luiz Carlos Trabuco did.

Since Bradesco closed 2017 with a revenue of R $ 76.3 billion, they are very optimistic that they will do even better this year. With that being said, both Lazari Jr and Trabuco stress the importance of having pension reform. It’s the best possible thing for everyone involved. They need everything with the bank to increase without having to worry about the unemployment number increasing. They expect GDP to go up around 2%-3%, interest rates going lower, and inflation to remain the same. In short, they need to be sure that this year is one of the best they’ve ever had.

Key Points from Shervin Pishevar’s 21-hour Tweet Storm

In February this year, Shervin Pishevar broke his Twitter silence, and he did so in a unique way. Before that, Shervin’s last post was on December 14, last year when he announced his resignation from Sherpa Capital in the wake of sexual harassment allegations. The twitter storm was long and detailed. It covered a wide range of topics including the US stock market, Silicon Valley, inflation, and immigration.

Looming financial storm

Shervin Pishevar began his Twitter rant by talking of a looming financial storm. The US stock market was turbulent at the beginning of February. Shervin argus that the turbulence will continue in the following few months. He predicts that the stock market will drop more than 6, 000 points in 2018.

What are the causes of the looming financial storm? Shervin Pishevar listed several factors that he believes are to blame for the crisis. These factors include tax giveaways, discrepancies in credit accounts, and increasing interest rates. He also predicts that in the fullness of time, investors will realize that all classes of assets are overvalued.

The effectiveness of government bonds

In the past, central banks have used bonds to recorrect the market through quantitative easing. Shervin Pishevar claims that that strategy will not work this time around. He asserts that the approach has been too overused to be effective.

The Silicon Valley

Regarding the Silicon Valley, Shervin notes that America has lost exclusivity. He maintains that America no longer has the monopoly of talent, ideas, and entrepreneurial spirit. Technological innovation is now flourishing globally. Shervin treats this as a bad signal for the short-term economic growth of the USA.

The Big Five Unicorns

Shervin terms Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, and Google as monopolies. He warns that the growing trend of these companies buying out startups will eventually fail the economy. He criticizes the American system for turning a blind eye to the activities of the big five companies.

About Shervin Pishevar

Dick and Betsy DeVos, Powerhouse Couple for Change

Dick DeVos has an excellent sense of history.

 

He looked toward Detroit and saw the damage done to the great city’s center when such ambitious public space projects as the Palace of Auburn Hills and the Pontiac Silverdome got pulled to the suburbs.

 

He was determined to see that the same thing didn’t happen in his beloved Grand Rapids. When a new convention and sports facility was slated for real estate development outside of the city’s downtown, he saw the possibility of Detroit happening all over again. So he got on the phone.

 

He was a top business leader and would be the eventual CEO of his family’s Amway Corporation, so it was a certainty that his calls to his powerful peers would be returned.

 

He spearheaded the group of local business and civic leaders into Grand Action. The new group exerted their collective muscle to get the complex built downtown, and that was just the start.

 

Grand Action got a lot done in short order. It took collective action that led to the construction of such ambitious downtown projects as DeVos Place Convention Center, Andel Arena, Grand Rapids City Market, and Michigan State University – College of Human Medicine, among many others that raised the city’s profile, boosted its national reputation and granted it a new sense of dynamism.

 

This is only one facet of the commitment Dick and Betsy DeVos have shown for their entire working lives. For instance, Betsy DeVos became such a symbol of educational excellence for all children that it resulted in her appointment as the current Secretary of Education.

 

That reputation was built, in part, on the DeVos’s founding of the tuition-free West Michigan Aviation Academy. The innovative charter school reflects Dick Devos’s passion for flying and Betsy DeVos’s commitment to the delivery of a quality education for all.

 

The couple is also well known for their advocacy of arts and culture, healthcare and other charitable and civic causes of critical importance to the region and its people.

They don’t just lead the charge for positive change; they also fund it. Well beyond their founding of the innovative school, the couple also established their family foundation from which, to date, they’ve donated around $140 million to a variety of worthwhile causes.

 

One example, also in the area of quality education, is their start-up of the Education Freedom Fund. Today, it finances private school tuition for thousands of underprivileged students.

 

Dick DeVos’s push was instrumental in getting millions of dollars worth of improvements made to the city’s Gerald R. Ford International Airport and luring Southwest Airlines to expand air routes from Grand Rapids.

 

In recognition of his interest and accomplishments in commercial air travel, Dick DeVos has been appointed to the Management Advisory Council. This civic commission works to help set the strategic direction for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

 

In this era of financial challenges to cities, it’s easy to see Grand Rapids Michigan and the surrounding region in an entirely different light if not for the dedication, civic leadership and financial generosity of Dick and Betsy DeVos.

Enhanced Athlete Doesn’t Back Down, and the Industry is Grateful

Towards the end of 2017, supplement company Enhanced Athlete faced a lawsuit from Nutrition Distribution. Nutrition Distribution’s case was built around the idea that Enhanced Athlete was falsely advertising their product, and that this false advertisement was hurting Nutrition Distribution’s sales. Enhanced Athlete was not the only company being sued by Nutrition Distribution, however. Around the same time as this lawsuit, Nutrition Distribution was in the process of 70 or so other lawsuits, all the while also sending many more cease-and-desist letters demanding settlement costs. In all of these cases, the argument is the same. Essentially, Nutrition Distribution argues that their competition’s allegedly false advertising impacts their sales.

 

But Enhanced Athlete didn’t back down. Instead, they fought back. Scott Cavell, who is the CEO of Enhanced Athlete, had this to say on the matter: “Enhanced Athlete is not going to be the next victim of Nutrition Distribution’s shakedown scheme.” And Enhanced Athlete wasn’t. They fought the case rather than settling, and the outcome was in their favor. After the course was considered by the United States District Court of the Eastern District of California, the judge decided against Nutrition Distribution’s case. The judge’s decision was based primarily on the lack of objective connection between Enhanced Athlete’s advertisement and the sales of Nutrition Distribution’s products. Basically, there was no provable relationship between the two factors, and Enhanced Athlete made it past the case, as strong as ever. Enhanced Athlete stood up for themselves, and the results were huge for the industry in general. Caveli discussed the importance of not bending to the will of companies like Nutrition Distribution, and that doing so only further encourages their behavior: “So long as supplement companies continue to pay these nuisance value settlements, Nutrition Distribution will continue with its business model of shakedown lawsuits.”

 

Enhanced Athlete, along with its two sister companies, Enhanced Gear and Enhanced Coaching, provide top-of-the-line assistance to those looking to get fit. Enhanced Athlete, the specific group that survived the legal attack from Nutrition Distribution, focuses on supplements, offering a variety that help users build muscle, burn fat, and increase performance. On the other hand, Enhanced Gear hosts a great, varied inventory of workout attire for all styles and shapes. Finally, Enhanced Coaching gives participants the aid and counsel of an experienced and trained fitness guru, who gives help with constructing meal plans and tailoring specific workouts. When combined, these services offer a fitness experience rivaled by no other.

US Money Reserve Understands Inflation

The best way to sum up information is as a loss of power. This basically means that when inflation is high a person can do less with the dollar they have in their pocket. Although inflation is a loss of power, there is a remedy for it. It’s knowledge, as knowledge is power.

 

The first thing to know about inflation is what exactly makes it up. Inflation can be described as the difference between the price of goods and services within a market as it is compared to the previous year. There is more than one way to understand the phenomenon of inflation. However, a common method of measuring this economic vibration is through the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Basically, it is a huge database of the prices per unit on a number of different items.

 

The significance of this index is that it reports and tracks this data over time. And, that is where things can get a little bit tricky. Where most people understand the rate of inflation as compared to what they paid for on items such as cars and education a few years ago, there’s another side to it.

 

The Bureau of Statistics makes this determination by looking at the pricing data for several items within the United States. The purpose of this endeavor is to see how prices relate and overlay each other, in the life of the average everyday consumer. It’s generally understood as a complication to life. But at its very core, it is indicative of what is going on with an economy.

 

High inflation means that a dollar can be described as weak, where low inflation can have a tell-tale sign regarding the purchase of goods. This kind of swing within inflation, during a recession, can result in deflation. The good people at the US Money Reserve make it their business to understand these types of changes in the economy and have solutions available no matter what comes.

 

Since economic phenomenon like these really depend on market trends and how people are buying, the answer to avoid it was simple. It all begins with being able to increase ones earning power and savvy through financial lingo and comprehension. There’s also the simple matter of being able to save and protect resources should a collapsing economy ever occur. After all tightening your belt, so to speak, can only take one so far. And, in some instances it actually proves more restrictive than prudent.
