Chain Smokers: A New Beginning

When it comes to topping the charts with multiple hits, few artists can attest to achieving this amazing feat. In general, music is in a different place thanks to social media. Retail stores that once sold compact discs, albums and tapes are no longer the “top dog” for selling music. We are living in some of the most technologically advanced times, and the digital age has made it much more easy to receive an abundance of music. The Chainsmokers personifies this notion brilliantly. This phenomenal DJ and production duo has had hit after hit since the band’s formation in 2012. The two members of the band are Alex Pall and Drew Taggart. They’ve acquired massive hits over a two-year span with songs like “Roses” and “Paris.”

The Chainsmokers are known for their eclectic sense of style. The band’s music can’t be boxed into one category as it pulls from multiple genres like hip hop, indie and pop. Since being classified as a EDM-pop duo, the Chainsmokers has been blazing the charts ever since they released the 2014 hit “Selfie.” After this mega-song was released, the duo unloaded with a borage of other hit songs like “Closer.” Racking-up the awards has been another benefit for making such good music. The duo’s first top-five single, “Don’t let Me Down,” won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. The Chainsmokers are known for their carefree type of dance tracks, but today is a new day. The duo has revamped its style by giving their music a darker tone. The duo’s new single, “Sick Boy,” has ushered in a new style of music. “This track is a reflection to what’s going on in society,” said Taggart.

The song’s vibe is definitely darker, but it works for the duo as they’ve become somewhat of a caricature. A bit of frustration and anger can be felt in this new music thanks to the opinions of a few. All in all, it looks like the Chainsmokers will surely have another hit and this new style of music shows their range as true artists.

How A Little Known American Statute Created A Huge Investment Opportunity In The US

Ever since Matt Badiali held up a check showing how someone he knew made $114,287 off an investment many people across America took notice. This editor at Banyan Hills Publishing and natural resources investing expert called it a Freedom Check and told people they could also make a lot of money off this little-known opportunity. It is a private check from a private company, not the government, he explained, although the opportunity to get Freedom Checks in the mail was done through a law enacted by Congress. There’s a statute called 26-F, created in 1987, which was passed with little attention to what a great opportunity it was for Americans. Read more about Freedom Checks at banyanhill.com.

There are now 568 American businesses which meet the qualifications for sending out Freedom Checks to their shareholders. While little known it is a perfectly legitimate investment which some in-the-know investors have been taking advantage of for years, some even decades. These people have invested in what are known as MLPs, or “master limited partnerships”. What the term MLP means is that this type of company is first in the oil and gas industry. Second, all but 10% of their annual revenues must by law come from the transportation, storage, production, and processing of American oil and gas. Most commonly this oil and gas comes from the Marcellus Shale, Bakken Shale, and Permian Basin but it can come from other sources. Second, they are required by Statute 26-F to return 90% of what they earn back to their shareholders. Read this article at Money Morning.

Batt Badiali says that the best way to think about it is that they have to pay dividends to shareholder like many normal companies do. Investors don’t have to pay taxes on them like they do dividends, though, as they are a return of capital. Even if you sell your shares in an MLP you also just pay the lower capital gains taxes for that year.

Just about every MLP pays out their dividends every three months as their fiscal quarter’s end. Occasionally some do pay out on a monthly basis, however. Beyond oil and gas companies, there are other pass-through firms that are also qualified to send out Freedom Checks. This can include real estate investment trusts most commonly although some companies in other industries also qualify. Matt suggests that investors should only put their money in firms with over a $1 billion in “In-Demand” assets and only look at companies with raw materials that are currently really in demand.

PSI Pay, Biometrics And Cashlessness

Sweden may well be the one country in the world that is leading the charge toward cashless societies. Swedes use very little cash, and companies like PSI-Pay, and their affiliate Kerv Wearables, are leading us to believe that cashless payments will dominate the market soon enough. Cashless is already gripping the world, but PSI-Pay takes this one step further and are betting that “contactless” payments will be the wave of the future, and rightfully so. Money is expensive to print and is a dirty commodity. In fact, Kerv has a contactless payment ring that is already posing a threat to traditional payment systems in the UK.

With venerated institutions like the Church of England jumping on-board, creating electronic terminals for collecting cashless donations, there is growing comfort in cryptocurrencies and their relatively traceless transactions. Some security concerns speak of technology, loop holes, tracing information and how there are vulnerabilities around every corner. Others go as far as to say the only way to truly protect oneself is to use “prepaid” credit cards for online, cashless, and contactless transactions.

That seems antiquated, and with credit card companies, banks and systems like Apple Pay perfectly established to thwart fraudulent efforts, going back to taking cash to a big box store to buy a prepaid credit card seems like talking about rolling up car windows and mailing checks to pay bills. Everything is changing very fast, and companies like PSI-Pay are paving the way to the future solidifying social media and banking.

What we once thought of as privacy and protected personally identifiable information are now just scary words fear mongers use to paralyze those who can be frightened. Social security numbers are rather easy to obtain, and names, addresses and phone numbers are all over the internet. Contactless transactions are likely here to stay, so no more clinging to social security numbers and credit card numbers; your iris is likely to become your new personally identifiable source of information, and that cannot be stolen or duplicated.

Biometrics is the new, very safe frontier. Soon we will be contactless, blinking into our cameras on our computers so as to effect payment for a transaction. In this we can all take solace, because this is the most terribly secure way of transacting if ever there was one.

NGP VAN changes political canvassing forever

The old way of canvassing a neighborhood for political purposes is still in effect today. It involves sending as many people as you can get to volunteer out to neighborhoods with clipboards and political buttons or stickers and getting signatures or information from people who are in favor of the cause. However, this can also be frustrating as people knock on doors of people who may not be favorable to the cause. It is time consuming and there must be a better way to do canvassing in the digital age. NGP VAN has come up with that solution with an app that digitizes political canvassing.

NGP VAN is a software company that has cut out the “cutting out turf” portion of canvassing. That’s the time where organizations spend making maps and creating lists of potential voters. Now, data is collected by NGP VAN and funneled into this app. Organizes can use the app to generate maps canvassers can carry on their phones and find their lists in the palms of their hands.

What the NGP VAN software requires is that organizes enter the region they want to canvass. The people creating the canvass program creates a script and separates out how many addresses they want their volunteers to knock on and the app creates the maps, lists and distributes them to the canvassers.

This kind of targeted approach helps make neighborhood canvassing more effective and, thus, more cost effective. NGP VAN’s app can help canvassers personalize their message and reach the people who will respond to that message more effectively. It ends up creating an approach which has a deeper and more effective response from voters which can save time and money for the volunteers.

So, the process of canvassing neighborhoods has reached the digital age. New software and approaches put the power of effective canvassing in the hands of those organizing their political prospects. It ends up saving time, money and effort, with greater potential effect.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappis Business Acumen

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi gained presidency at Bradesco March 2009, they had lost their lead against their longtime rival Unibanco. Tentatively, Luiz ruled out running for first place in banking classes. “Leadership by itself isn’t a goal,” he said in an interview at the time. “Our goals are doing the best jobs in the places that we serve.” However, in August, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi did a bold thing.

With the approval of Lázaro Brandão, Chairman of this Board, he bought the Brazilian branch of HSBC for US $ 5.2 billion, in the largest business in Brazil in 2015. With the acquisition, Bradesco reopens the fight for leadership in the private segment. Bradesco became the second largest bank in Brazil. A simple sum of the market shares of Bradesco and HSBC makes Banco de Deus bank in Osasco outperform Itaú Unibanco in three items: branch network, number of account holders and total investment funds. In another three, it is close to the rival: assets, deposits and loans granted.

Born in Marília, in 1951, the city of Bradesco origin, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi graduated from the Faculty at Philosophy, Science and Letters of the University at São Paulo.

The executive began working at the bank in 1969 as bank clerk. As usual at the institution, he went through all hierarchy levels. But he managed to take over the presidency for his work at Bradesco Seguros, which he ran from 2003 to 2009. This area has contributed about 30% of Bradesco’s profit to date. As soon as he sat down in his chair, Trabuco created a corporate university and began to seek the renewal of leadership cadres, talking to executives from all levels of the bank.

To account for this, it established rituals to give autonomy to those who were promoted. Those who ascended were gathered in the Noble Hall, the most solemn of the bank, used for shareholders’ meetings. Every word was opened. One sign of the renovation promoted by Trabuco is the search for market professionals.

An example is Renato Ejnisman, responsible executive director Bradesco BBI, who has served on Bank of America and BankBoston. Of simple habits, Trabuco arrives at the bank at around 7 o’clock in the morning. He works until 6:00 p.m., but in general, he extends his work at business dinners. Earlier in the year, his name was considered to take over the Ministry of Finance. He did not accept the invitation of President Dilma Rousseff. “Trabuco was born to work for Bradesco,” says an executive who knows him well. In fact: his name is the strongest to succeed Lázaro Brandão, seen by all as the soul of the bank.
