The Chainsmokers Unchain hearts

In May of 2018 the infamous Swedish EDM group better known as the Chainsmokers highlighted the stage of the 2018 Billboard Music Awards with fellow singer and songwriter Halsey. These two groundbreaking entertainers definitely aren’t strangers to grasping the attention of the public, especially those die hard fans who’ve been following their careers since their breakthrough titles like the 2014 techno hit “Selfie. All the way to their massive collaborating hit “Closer” which featured the beautiful singer/songwriter New Jersey native co-presenter Halsey. Together the collaboration managed to top the Billboard charts in 2016 landing in the number one spot for weeks in eleven countries.

However, their collaboration during the big night came with a bittersweet celebration. As the trio presented the award to the deserving Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi for his recent hit “Despacito” they also took a moment to pay respects and kind words to their successful fellow EDM DJ named Avicci, whom died in April of 2018 from suicide. During this unfortunate event we were given the opportunity to see the humanizing side of the entertainers we love as they shared their loving message for a friend; expressing how all people can make a tremendous difference when we realize our greatness within ourselves and each other.

Elevating from the climbing spot and reminiscent days of a group who in the past would fight to be on the DJ Magazine list and never make it – to later being ranked at the number 18 spot on the DJ list by the the year 2016. During their speech the popular trio also highlighted the need for mental illness awareness. The group Chainsmokers expressed their gratitude for fellow DJs’ such as their late friend Avicci. Before the night ended the group racked up another Billboard award for their streaming success quoting that “Avicci is someone who made us believe that this was something we could do with our lives.” It was a powerful ending message to those who dare to make a difference in the lives of others.

Randal Nardone: Expert In His Field, Visionary In His Business

There aren’t too many self-made billionaires.

However, Randal Nardone is one of them. Married with one child, he is the CEO and co-founder of Fortress Investment Group. The other two co-founders include Wes Edens and Rob Kauffman. Kauffman retired in 2012, however, to pursue a personal interest, NASCAR racing, and Peter Briger has since replaced him as one of the company’s principals.

Each of these founders brought much experience and knowledge to their new company, having previously been employed at prestigious well-known companies that include Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, UBS, and BlackRock Financial Management Randal Nardone currently has a net worth of over a billion dollars. With the company’s headquarters located in New York, Fortress Investment Group is a firm that helps people to diversify their investments.  Fortress Investment Group was founded in 1998 as a private equity firm and currently has over 1,700 investors.

The company has much experience in managing both financial and physical assets. For their clients and with the help of nearly 1,000 employees, Fortress Investment Group LLC has a few different successful strategies that cover the fields of real estate, credit, private equity, and more.

Many self-made billionaires have spent time in college. This is also true for Randal Nardone. He graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelors Degree in the field of Science. Most of Nardone’s 1.8 billion dollar net worth is invested in shares in shares. He Nardone owns 53 million shares.

Kauffman, Nardone, and Edens created Fortress Investment Group with the goal of offering customers a different kind of investing experience. They wanted to create an investment firm that offered an “alternative-asset” strategy. This strategy would raise private equity and then invest it into cutting-edge vehicles. This proved to be a lucrative strategy for the three founders because Fortress Investment Group grew quickly. Their $400 million in assets turned into nearly 4 billion in the company’s first five years. This means that the company multiplied its value 10 times in such a short period of time.


Also, in less than 10 years after the company opened its doors, their assets totaled $32.6 billion. This wealth began with Fortress Investment Group’s very first investment vehicle in 1999, which Randal Nardone and his colleagues named the Fortress Investment Fund I. This fund focused mainly on real estate but expanded rather rapidly into hedge funds and debt securities.

NPG VAN Technology Upgrades

NGP Is a leading technology provider to progressive and democratic campaigns and other organizations that offer customers an integrated podium of the best compliance, field, fundraising, organizing and the social networking products.

NGP Van powered some political campaigns. Colossal data is used to link attacks to the voters who will support a particular candidate’s platform. This kind of voter model enables the Democrats to identify their potential voters in huge numbers, and convince them to turn up on the voting day to go and vote. An excellent example of the political campaigns that were powered by big data, social media, and technology was the historic re-election and the election of President Barrack Obama in the year 2008 and 2012.

NGP Van exposed the eight edition of NGP software this week, which is its namesake. The call time, which is paperless, appears as one of its headlines features. However the update is meant to assist in streamlining one of the most disliked sections of campaigning, it can also assist in staving off competition from the potential rivals.



According to Lou Levine, NGP Van’s general manager in charge of fundraising and compliance is the aptitude to practice build call sheets, and this is an improvement.

Levine told C&E that he had been dealing with the custom call sheet for the past eighteen years and that before the clients had to contact the firm to make the requests. This new improvement will make most people happy.

The fundraising software can improve and report the campaigns and the group’s capability to use their data. The software enables any fundraiser to trail the candidate’s performance. Levine confirms that a one can verify if the morning is a successful one for his or her candidate from part of the voting report.

The new software has the capability of helping reconcile the credit card settlements when it comes to permission. According to Levine, this is a huge pain; they have been trying to work on it for a year.

However, for the vendors who change into NGP Vans platform have appreciated the update since it is the best versions of their new software. Steve Spinner who is the CEO and founder of RevUp found this as a good thing.

ClassDojo creates a helpful atmosphere for teachers and parents.

I think many people would not disagree that teaching can be a very demanding and difficult job. One of the least discussed aspects of the job, however, may be the fact that many of the teachers, despite being around children and other people all day, can often become lonely. Even though there are plenty of kids around, many teachers do not get the time to be able to converse with and be around their peers. This can add a feeling of loneliness on top of the usual stresses that teachers have to deal with.

Many teachers, however, are finding themselves able to solve this problem using a new app named ClassDojo. ClassDojo can be described as a social network that connects teachers parents and students. Primarily, ClassDojo is used to help the teachers interact with the parents and share with them upcoming events that the students are partaking in, as well as any progress and milestones the student may have accomplished. This app has created a large network of teachers having already been used by over 85,000 Schools, including private, charter, and public school. ClassDojo was created to fill the gap in communication between parents and teachers which many of the other educational app companies ignored in favor of making curriculum, testing, and tutoring apps. The goals of the creators of ClassDojo are to get their app into as many teachers hands as possible. They have not yet turned a profit, nor do they intend to harvest user data to sell to companies.

One of the advantages of using ClassDojo is to get assistance from teachers in other cities and states. For example, say you have a student who speaks another language came into your class and you do not know how to reach the student. You can speak to other teachers in other locations which are familiar with this and they can help you, or you can speak to the parents themselves to work out a solution. This app is created to build a communication platform for everyone involved in the lives of the students, so they can be sure that these students are getting all the help they need.

Gender Biased Rules And How Whitney Wolfe Tackles Them

When looking at the history of humanity, there has always been a divide between genders. This divide has gone beyond the biological aspects of gender. There have also been laws that have governed genders. The only issue with this is that there have been perceptions of unfairness and injustice. Women have felt like they were oppressed by men. This has especially been evident when it came to the workplace. Women had to go through a special type of hazing. They have also had to accept lower pay in some cases and do special favors. Even when it came to dating and relationships, women were given rules that limited them.

This is where Whitney Wolfe comes in. She is working very hard to bring women to an equal level with men. When she started on Bumble, she did not want to make a dating app. She instead wanted to make an app for women to interact with one another. She was talked into creating a dating app. Therefore, she has looked into something that she can use to empower women. As Whitney Wolfe has thought about it, she has noticed an unwritten rule in dating that suggests that women shouldn’t approach men. She did not understand or agree with that rule. Therefore, she has created Bumble with the configuration that keeps men from initiating with women.

She has not only made Bumble with the purpose of having women approach, she has also put her ideas into practice when she met Michael Herd. This has turned out to be a success because they soon got married. As of right now, they are enjoying a good relationship. Whitney is also working on extensions to the app for women’s empowerment. Among the gender biased rules that Whitney has taken on is the rule against women earning a lot of money. She has done that with Bumble Bizz.
