The Chainsmokers Continue to Climb the Ladder of Musical Success

EDM/Pop duo, the Chainsmokers, have been continuously growing bigger as a pop act. Over the years, they have acclaimed great success over the release of their hit singles. Their newest achievement, however, may be their finest. Two years after their 2016 single, “Closer”(feat. Halsey), was released, the hit has been certified diamond in the U.S. The accolade comes from the single selling at least 10 million units.

The duo decided to break the news to the general public by announcing it over their Instagram page. With the statement came a picture of the two holding their diamond plaques for “Closer”.

The song isn’t just a massive accomplishment for the band itself. It has proven to be noteworthy for its longevity on the U.S pop charts. For two years, “Closer” stayed within the top 100 for over two years, making it the fourth longest-running hit in the U.S history.

The succLibraryess of the song hasn’t just helped out the Chainsmokers. With its release, it helped further establish the career of American singer-songwriter, Halsey. The young, up and coming artist also received credit for diamond-selling song. Many suggest it is her breakout hit as she continues to catapult herself into pop stardom.

In addition to chart accomplishments, “Closer” was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Category. The song competed against other songs from artists such as Twenty One Pilots. While it did not win a Grammy, it continues to enjoy success through massive amounts of radio play, streams, and single sales across the U.S. It has established the Chainsmokers as reining superstars of their genre, even though they had already been achieving success throughout the years with their other hits released. The group continues to work on music and looks to be a force to be reckoned with in the music industry for years to come.

Doe Deere’s Journey As a Hardworking Immigrant

For millions of people around the world, USA represents an ideal life. This was not different for Doe Deere. Her dream to come to USA happened at the tender age of 17 years. Although Deere was born and raised in Xenia Vorotova (in Russia), American culture was part of her young age. She interacted with the vast fashion industry and entertainment business through music, magazines, and movies. Together with her mother and her one sister, Doe Deere made a decision to come to the USA, specifically New York to start a new life.

Like many immigrants, the flashy life in music and in magazines was different from what Deere and her family experienced. Nevertheless, it was worth a trial. During that time, New York had its own challenges. Doore believes that the city’s challenges gave her and her family a better preparation for what was going to come –a successful brand. The challenges of living in homeless shelters and having less money according to Deere were sad but she refers the experience as part of the preparation to who she is today.

Two years after landing in USA, Doe Deere and her family were able to have a home. Although according to her the home did not fit the perfect picture of a home, it was a great start for them. During this period, she was able to work on her childhood dream of becoming an entrepreneur. The journey, however, bore fruits, eight years later when she successfully founded Lime Crime. The company is primarily a beauty company specializing in makeup products.

From 2008, the company has expanded the brand scope to accommodate more beauty products apart from makeup products. Unlike many beauty companies, Doe Deere’s company has successfully been able to experiment on different product colors aimed at different customers. As an entrepreneur and the founder of Lime Crime, Deere has been a strong believer of quality and customer’s satisfaction.

As an entrepreneur and a near future mum, the journey paints her as a visionary and a hardworking woman. As a believer of the American dream, although she is an immigrant, Doe Deere’s life is a perfect example of why self-believe and hard work is important.

Shervin Pishevar says that inflation has been successfully shunted elsewhere, but won’t last

Shervin Pishevar is one of the most widely followed venture capitalists in the world of tech. He is the founder and CEO of Investment company as well as a prolific entrepreneur, having founded companies ranging from Social Gaming Network to Ionside and WebOS. He was also instrumental in the early formation of Uber, Airbnb and Virgin Hyperloop, providing critical financing on those projects that enabled them to get off the ground.

But it is in the realm of social media that Shervin Pishevar has perhaps gained the widest following. His Twitter feed is trafficked by more than 100,000 regular followers, and he commands the attention of some of the most influential people in the nation’s tech economy as well as throughout fields like economics and politics.

In a recent tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar laid out a number of cogent arguments regarding the state of real inflation that the long expansionary monetary policies of the United States have created. Shervin Pishevar says that, even discounting the considerable manipulation of primary inflation statistics like the Consumer Price Index, real inflation has not been anywhere near as low as the powers that be would like the U.S. populace to believe.

Instead, Shervin Pishevar argues that inflation has run off into historically unusual channels this time around. One of the areas in which inflation has become apparent is throughout virtually every asset class. In the stock market, this asset inflation is perhaps the most apparent. The flooding of the market with easy credit, says Pishevar, has created an unprecedented bull market in equities. At the same time, he says, ultra-low interest rates have inflated an arguable bubble in the housing market throughout many regions of the United States.

The housing market bubble is among the most serious for average Americans because it represents a form of asset inflation that affects absolutely everyone, in particular, renters. As housing prices have soared throughout much of the United States, rents have shot through the roof. This is not always accurately reflected in official inflation statistics, says Pishevar. And this is by design.

But people who are paying twice as much for rent as they were six years ago are sure noticing it.

GreenSky Credit continues stunning growth

The fintech industry has been wracked with dismal performance of some of its most darling companies. Firms that just a few years ago were touted as the Googles and Apples of the fintech industry, with names like OnDeck and Lending Club, are now smoking holes, having fallen from the sky out of the hubris and incompetence of their leadership.

But one fintech company has nearly single-handedly redeemed the entire industry. While its competitors were bamboozling investors with techy speeches in black turtlenecks about how NINJA loans were the future and homeless indigents could be turned into born-again productive capitalists, GreenSky Credit was busy building a viable business model. The GreenSky Credit model is notable for both its simplicity and its value-additive nature. Unlike so many other trendy fintech startups, GreenSky Credit has sought only to enhance value within the established banking system rather than burning it down and creating financial utopia from the smoldering rubble.



This simple-yet-effective philosophy lies at the heart of what GreenSky founder David Zalik had as a vision of his company from the start. Touring the company’s understated, modern headquarters, one will not be able to locate the Silicon Valley staples of excess and waste, such as foosball tables, beer dispensers or video arcades. What one will find is a company with more than 650 employees, each of whom know their jobs inside and out and who care passionately about helping retail customers get the financing that they need.

The idea behind GreenSky came to Zalik when he was working closely with a number of major home improvement retailers. He saw that many deals were falling through when inexperienced homeowners severely underestimated the true costs of their home renovation projects. Zalik saw a golden opportunity. If someone would connect these homeowners, who often had among the highest possible credit ratings, with instant lending facilities, acting as a sort of retail-level bridge loan, there could be a great deal of money to be made.

Today, GreenSky Credit is originating more than $4 billion in loans every year. And the company expects to be doing nearly five times that amount by the year 2020.

Chainsmokers’ ‘Side Effects’ And What The Future Holds

Back in 2016, the Chainsmokers released “Closer“, a single that made light of numerous records that had been set before. Two years down the line, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall followed this up with a new single “Side Effects”. They had partnered with Pepsi for a show at Hollywood Palladium just before releasing the funky single. The duo took time to share the story behind the song and what fans should look forward to.

Taggart had especially enjoyed the LA show as they performed under very little pressure. They did not have to worry about being super impressive as LA is home to the duo. The fact that they had become accustomed to larger crowds did not bother them. Speaking of crowds, the duo mentioned that Canadians have offered them great reception during their tours. Their recent show in Montreal was one of the best.

Their music is highly influenced by what goes on around them. “Side Effects” was given a funky style in line with the summertime that had just kicked off. “Sick Boy” was released during winter and underlined the troubles that the duo was dealing with back then.

The new hit song also reflects the self-awareness that The Chainsmokers have placed in their music of late. They also get a lot of inspiration from how the current generation interacts with each other. The duo is conscious about technology and their writing is informed by the advances that have been seen in the last couple of years.

Their partnership with Emily Warren continues to receive backing from different quarters. They have gone to great lengths to establish chemistry with her as she brings plenty of talent to the table. Their fans should expect to see more of her over the years.

Andrew Taggart was keen to mention that the release of “Closer” was one of the turning points of their career. It brought them to a whole new level and they have no intentions of looking back. The future is full of promise for the duo who hope to continue doing their live tours.

The Chainsmokers began as a DJ’ing duo and have evolved over the years to keep up with their growing audience. They won’t put their turntable skills to bed anytime soon. They hope to continue doing that while offering more music to their loyal fans.

Beto O’Rourke Continues To Receive The Support Of End Citizens United

The Texas Democrat, Beto O’Rourke has recently become a viral sensation because of his response to questions about the controversy of kneeling during the national anthem. Beto O’Rourke has become a popular candidate after making his way to every county in Texas in an epic grassroots campaign. Beto O’Rourke is being backed by the traditional PAC, End Citizens United in an effort to unseat the sitting Republican Ted Cruz, who was initially elected by a grassroots effort created by the conservative Tea Party.

Since his election, Ted Cruz has been identified by End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller as one of the top recipients of so-called “dark money” from special interest groups. The PAC operates in a traditional manner with no donor permitted to give more than $5,000 per election cycle. Tiffany Muller has often explained her belief in the loss of the democratic process because of the influx of money into politics because of the controversial Citizens United Supreme Court decision. The 2010 decision allowed corporations and Super PACs the chance to be treated as individuals with their rights secured under the U.S. Constitution. Read more news about the group on USA Today.

At the outset of his campaign for the Senate, Beto O’Rourke was trailing the former Presidential candidate by upwards of 10 points, largely because the Democrat’s message was not known in the Lone Star State. The attempt to unseat Ted Cruz seemed like a hopeless task, but the arrival of End Citizens United on the campaign trail has made a major difference.

During the 2016 Presidential Election, End Citizens United learned the most successful campaign strategy for Democrats in traditionally Republican states was to focus on the issue of election finance. In an End Citizens United poll, Beto O’Rourke jumped into a narrow lead when centrist voters were told of the wish to reform the election finance rules Ted Cruz has used to further his on aims over those of Texan voters.

The successful one is his prediction on the coming of the internet of Things and the second one is about an anti-aging drug. Let’s look at these two.

The Internet of Things is a technology that enables electronic devices to connect to communicate with each other through wireless connections. Devices can now connect, communicate and work without the intervention of human beings. The technology is still being developed and still in its early stages. In the future, the application will be so huge that almost everything will be controlled through the internet. There will be things like smart cities which will be fully controlled through IoT.

Jason Hope says that the airline industry is one of those who have embraced the new trend. Majority of the companies in this industry have increased the budget for research and innovation to explore more benefits that come with this technology.

The anti-aging drug research is the other area that Jason Hope is exploring. In this area, he is working with a research foundation known as the SENS Research Foundation headed by Aubrey de Grey.
