Behind the Sick Boy: Chainsmokers Reviled

The Chainsmokers; a well-known American DJ and production duo, formed in 2012 but did not experience their breakthrough into fame until 2014. They erupted into the spotlight with their single #Selfie which ended up a top twenty single in several countries. From this point, Chainsmokers were on the roadmap to fame and success in the music industry.

The duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, went on to produce hits such as “Roses”, “Paris”, “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay, “Closer” with Halsey and “Don’t Let Me Down”. This dynamite pair of producers turned into on of the hottest new groups almost overnight. Because of their success in the music industry they began to experience pressure to recreate numerous sons that were a mixture of EDM and Top 40 pop. This would have been an easy task for such a creative duo but they team decided to take their musical creativities to a darker side. Their new release, “Sick Boy” is just the beginning of a new darker chapter of their music career. In a recent interview the Chainsmokers shared that they always try to stay current with the music they are producing. Drew Taggart went on record sharing that even though this is the first release they have had in nine months the duo’s music is still “a reflection of what’s going on in our lives and the world around us”.

The Chainsmokers express their times of frustration with the industry. During the interview with Forbes they shared how they have watched themselves become people that they do not necessarily relate too. They shared how they aspire to convey to their audience what it is like to be a part of their generations. The current single release, “Sick Boy” is greatly inspired by how we as individuals are able to relate to society via social media and how so many things are left up to interpretation by others. It is a song about putting yourself out there on social media in the best most accurate ways. Yet, still expressing how blurred some messages still are to the world.

Wes Edens Continues Two-Decade Run as One of Nation’s Leading Investors

As co-founder, principal and board member of Fortress Investment Group, Wesley “Wes” Robert Edens has established himself as one of the nation’s premier businessmen and investors, being responsible for Fortress’ private equity and alternative investment dealings. Holder of a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Business Administration from Oregon State University, Edens launched his career with stints at Lehman Brothers and BlackRock Asset Investors, becoming partner and managing director at both institutions. He would launch Fortress Investment Group in 1998 with five other principals; upon debuting on the New York Stock Exchange nine years later, the New York City-based firm made history as the first private equity firm with substantial holdings to be traded publicly.

In the midst of the subprime mortgage crisi of the late 2000s that saw the firm’s stock price take a major hit, Fortress was shielded from financial jeopardy as a result of a substantial rise in the value of its majority stake in commercial real estate company Springfield Holdings, a majority stake that was purchased in 2010 on the advice of Edens. Fortress’ starting investment of $124 million would eventually grow to more than $3.5 billion dollars, for a more than 2700% hike in value.Today, Fortress employs more than 900 people and manages assets for almost 2,000 clients across the world, assets that boast a combined value of nearly $44 billion.

Beyond his decades-long work at Fortress, Edens chairs the boards of a number of financial organizations like Springleaf Finance, New Media Investment Group and Florida East Coast Holdings, amongst many others. With a net worth of $2.5 billion and take-home pay of more than $50 million a year, Edens has ranked as high as number 369 on the Forbes’ Billionaires List.In addition to his accomplishments in business and finance, Edens is a noted figure in the world of sports and eSports. He is the co-owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, having purchased the team in 2014 for $550 million along with Avenue Capital Group CEO Marc Lasry. As owners, Edens and Lasry have won plaudits for their intent to keep the Bucks in Milwaukee and the progress made on their soon-to-be-completed $500 million multi-purpose arena for use by the Bucks. Edens is also the sole owner of professional eSports team FlyQuest, which compete in League of Legends and Rocket League .

Dr. David Samadi Says Surgery Over Prostate Radiation Is Better

The burden of prostate cancer in society is substantial and has increased since the PSA testing was introduced, but patients often question should you go with surgery or radiation to treat this disease. Dr. David Samadi, leading expert and Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital dedicated a full show on his morning radio broadcast, and has a Youtube video discussing the benefits of surgery vs radiation.There are various alternative therapies available for the treatment. Depending on the stage of the disease, surgery, radiotherapy, and in some cases, simply waiting may be used. Especially in older patients, postponing the treatment to a later date is a possible alternative. For patients it is often not easy to decide on a therapy. Especially between surgery and radiotherapy, many factors often influence the decision-making process, but Dr. David Samadi says surgery is by far a better choice than radiation.

Several studies have examined both procedures and concluded that between surgery and radiotherapy, there was a clear benefit to operation versus radiotherapy. Dr. Samadi addressed this question on his radio broadcast, and he remarked that “with surgery, the outcome is great…and radiation should be considered a Plan B.”Also with surgery, there is a shorter recovery time. Doctors also note that when treating a prostate carcinoma, there are also different stages that may require a different treatment method. Family history also plays a role in determining the best treatment method. It appears that prostate cancer patients with family history may have a worse outcome after treatments by radiotherapy prostatectomy compared with patients without a family history.Genetic factors are also responsible in 5 to 10 percent of prostate cancer cases, and in this scenario, patients often opt for surgery.

The hardship of prostate cancer will increase due to our aging population.A clear understanding of risk factors, including factors like family history, race, and aging, and diet and environmental agents will help design strategies for the best treatment, not to mention diminish risk.Dr. David Samadi has been researching and treating urological diseases like prostate cancer for nearly two decades. Born in Iran, Dr. Samadi and his family immigrated to the United States where he attended high school then Stony Brook University in New York. After earnin his Bachelor’s and Medical degrees he completed his residency at local New York hospitals.Dr. Samadi developed the groundbreaking SMART surgery technique, and today is a internationally recognized surgeon, based in New York where he heads the Urology department at Lenox Hill Hospital.

The Rise Of Wes Edens

When an individual looks at the economic landscape of North America today, it may seem impossible to envision a world where there were no private equity firms that were publicly traded. However just over ten years ago there were no private equity firms on the the public market in all of the United States. This all changed in 2007 when Wes Edens led his company that he helped to cofound Fortress Investment Group to its initial public offering in the spring of that year. Since this time Fortress Investment Group under the expert guidance of Wes Edens and the other for initial founders of the company has managed to propel itself into the forefront of global economics as one of the leading alternative asset managers in the world.

Earlier this year the corporation was acquired by technology giant in the country of Japan which is known as Softbank group Corporation. Softbank group Corporation acquired Fortress Investment Group for a premium on the value of its stock price of $2.25. With this premium Fortress Investment Group experienced an immediate increase in the company’s valuation of over $140 million. A deal such as this would not have been possible without the leadership which was displayed by the companies founders and in particular the man known as Wes Edens. Although it may be difficult to envision, Wes Edens was not always a prominent businessman in North America. He originally graduated from Oregon State University with degrees in both finance and business administration in 1984 and went on to work in the finance industry at Lehman Brothers.

During his time at Lehman Brothers, he started off as an entry-level employee and became a managing director. After several years serving as a managing director for Lehman Brothers, he switched companies and became a managing director at Blackrock asset investors where he also served as a managing director until 1997. At this time he along with five other individuals had the idea to start their own private equity company and launched the now globally prominent Fortress Investment Group. It was there that he is investment style became admired by individuals all around the world. It has been described as an investment style comprised of creative financing and bets against the norm that has allowed Wes Edens to build businesses through his investments. It was this style of investing that has propelled his company into the global position of prominence that it currently holds.

The Evolving Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers are a DJ/Production duo that released their first album in April, 2017. They won a Grammy just out the gate with “Don’t Let Me Down” winning for Best Dance Recording. The duo, the Chainsmokers is made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, both of whom have a long history of working as DJs. Their love of the electronic manipulation of sound led to them deciding to unify and create their musical team.

In their interview by Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, they spoke of what makes their duo so successful. In the past, Chainsmokers has always featured other artists singing their songs. For the first time, Andrew Taggart will be singing along with up and coming artist, Halsey on their new 2018 release, “Closer”. This is a very different move for the Chainsmokers. In the past, they have worked with the vocals from Coldplay, ROSEZ, Phoebe Ryan and Daya. This is a step toward becoming recognized as artists and not simply electronic music masters.

The Chainsmokers are trying to change the view of the music industry that views them as merely electronic DJs. They want to be seen as musicians and so they are working to establish a more distinguished identity. Most people are unaware of the fact that unlike many artists with music on the billboards, the Chainsmokers collaborate with their song writers. This fact made it even less tolerable for others to see them as simply DJs. Both Pall and Taggart were aware of their own artistic growth and it wasn’t fully reflected in the old music. It was obvious in their most recent music, but it hadn’t been released. Their most recent release “Closer” is only one of those new songs revealing another layer of their musicality.

Both Alex Pall and Taggart were introduced to the electronic genre through DJing and each spent many hours DJing for a living. Loving the genre made it easy for them to collaborate on the music they loved when they decided to form the duo, Chainsmokers. They worked together non-stop for hours and days. Now, going forward, the Chainsmokers will still perform their shows live, but they will continue to add new layers as they evolve as musical artists. They will make another trip around the world, sharing their music with their 16-25 year old fans as they continue to evolve.
