Once again, The Chainsmokers make the news after a recent interview with Alex Pall. After only two years, the DJ/Producer Duo has become one of the most successful in the world. Since the release of their top 10 song Roses in 2015, they have consistently proven to be the experts of the Pop EDM world. They have won 24 awards at several awards ceremonies, including a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording.

After not releasing anything new in the 8 months between the lyric video release of Young in June of 2017, The Chainsmokers have come back with a new sound that is darker and more of a reflection on society than ever before, with their new song Sick Boy. It’s lyrics about the effect of social media on their lives is chilling, but their openness about who they are is refreshing.

If you have never heard of The Chainsmokers, or haven’t closely followed them, they first broke into the limelight with the song Roses two years ago. A year later, they released Dont Let Me Down, which hit number 3 in the US. That same year, they released the #1 hit song Closer, showing the world that they are the hit-makers.

This has all culminated to their new album, which currently has no release date. But so far, the duo has released four songs from the album which have gotten over a quarter billion views together in less than 5 months. Sick Boy alone has gotten 175 million views, and speaks to the younger generation, who have become trapped in a social media run world. The song speaks truth about how narcissistic and negative we have become in our life hiding behind a screen, and is a refreshing breath of relief among songs that beg for more fame, or that complain about how hard it is to be rich and popular. The Chainsmokers have hit a balance between upbeat dance songs, and a close look at society, and plan to develop this sound further in their upcoming album.

Sean Penn is a celebrated actor with a hundred productions tucked into his belt. He has graced the stage, marked the silver screen, and worked behind the camera. He has earned numerous accolades, top among them being a few best actor Oscars. Penn has even spent time as a corresponded, nabbing some important interviews. He is also known for his philanthropy, most recently with the Haitian Relief Organization he formed after the 2010 earthquake. This year he has hung up all those collective hats to put on a new one. Novelist. His first book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” has already led many critics to suggest the actor go back to acting. Penn, however, is loving the writer’s life and is planning on publishing more books. According to him he is done with being an actor.

Penn is not the first actor to become disenchanted with the movie business. Many actors young and old have retired and moved on to other things. For some it is lack of roles, for others it is the entire business itself. Penn says his reasoning is actually a recognition. He is done with collaboration. The movie business is rife with collaboration. Nothing is 100% yours. You have to deal with collaboration on the script, the direction, even the production. It is also a lot of give and take, as you have to jump through hoops to gain financial backing. Penn is done jumping through those hoops. One thing he loves about the book-making business is that when you finish something you just hand it to one person. You do not even give it to them, you let them look at it, and if they like it they publish it. Bob Honey allows Penn to be completely Penn, produce something that it is all his.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a satire that focuses on a ridiculous premise. It follows a septic tank salesmen, disgruntled by politics, who decides to help the world by becoming an assassin. He targets old people, taking them out with a mallet, to lessen the population on earth. The characters political motivations are of course Penn’s, and the book contains his take on many things. His primary targets are the Trump Organization, which he parodies in the book, and the #MeToo movement. His comments about #MeToo have stirred up some controversy. Penn critiques it scathingly in a six-page poem. The actor has remained unapologetic, defending his work by simply stating it’s a satire. The actor is currently on a book tour and is reportedly enjoying every minute of it. When asked if he planned on writing more, the actor said he has something brewing.

With technology, everything is changing for the better but with a bit of complexity due to new and emerging technologies. This is so especially in leisure where products can be personalized to suit a myriad of preferences and tastes. For smokers, electronic cigarettes come as a reliable and consistent option but only when one gets the right quality.

With more than 500 brands of e-cigs, one can easily bump on low-quality products that are sold at exorbitant prices. E-cigs sold in gas stations retail stores have limited choices regarding their quality, performance, and value. You can choose from a wide range of e-cigs options available online such as O2Pur. For instance, they have two premium e-liquid in delicious gourmet flavors that are 70/30 mixed blends of hot flavors costing $14.95 for the 60ml bottle and $24.95 for the 120 ml bottle.

O2Pur have their e-liquid permeated with smooth nicotine salts, which makes them act faster and taste better leaving you with a clean feeling. They are available in various flavors such as caramel apple, berry cheesecake, and island breeze with a price of $14.95 for a 60 ml bottle. They have a variety of box mods and accessories to improve your vaping experiences such as glass tank for box mods coming in 220w, 80w and 40w variations, a four port speed charger, 18650 battery, dual coil for box mods, and a six feet mini USB charging cable.

When making a transitioning from smoking to vaping, choosing the right e-cig involves how easily you can use one. It is essential to keep it simple at first and maybe later get sophisticated. A cigar-like is a good bet since it resembles and feels like a cigarette. It has a rechargeable battery and a cartomizer, which is an e-cig refill cartilage.

When one decides to start using e-cigs, the best option is, to begin with, a starter pack that contains everything including battery charger, e-cig batteries, and cartridges. Companies such as O2Pur have shipping arrangements for starter packs which come at a discount. It is important to keep extra cartridges and a spare fully charged battery to avoid the temptation of lighting a cigar when the craving comes, and one does not have an e-cig ready. Buying large stocks of cartridges is inexpensive compared to their long-term value.

It is advisable to use e-cigs the same way a person uses cigarettes. Vapers should mimic the same routine to avoid nicotine withdrawal which is associated with intense cravings. Vape your e-cigs the same number of times you used to puff your cigarette and hold it the same way. To enhance safety, use the same company batteries and chargers and do not mix or match. If they are from O2Pur or any other manufacturer, uses them as directed.

There’s a wealth of information available about Warren Buffett and his successful conglomerate company Berkshire Hathaway. Known as the Oracle of Omaha Warren Buffet has been considered to be an absolute legend and astute businessman, consistently predicting opportunities in the market and growing his self-made company into one of the largest publicly traded firms on the planet.

This is why for many it came as a surprise when Stansberry Research did some additional digging and found uncomfortable truths about the company as well as where it might be headed. Porter Stansberry goes into great detail during his free article about the Berkshire Hathaway, but his analysis boils down to two key points (http://releasefact.com/2018/03/stansberry-research-on-walmart-stock/).

First of all, Stansberry makes clear differentiation between the early strategies of Warren Buffet compared to the present Strategies employed by Berkshire Hathaway. Most notably, Buffet has consistently invested in only the highest quality publicly traded companies. Because these companies were already great there was little that Warren Buffett or Berkshire Hathaway had to do; so long as they have the capital they can expect to receive games from the company.

Berkshire Hathaway has since deviated from the strategy quite a bit. Rather than purchasing from companies that were considered to be inevitable so just Coca-Cola and Gilette, Berkshire Hathaway has branched out into new ventures. These ventures required large amounts of capital and management. In some cases these ventures were regulated to the point of being much more difficult to profit from.

His second point is just the large nature of the company. Warren Buffett himself admits it is much easier to make large games on a smaller portfolio. There is much less to manage in far fewer mistakes are made. Focusing only on what you’re best at your company and your Investments have the best chance to succeed. As Berkshire Hathaway grows it is forced to disregard this philosophy out of necessity, even though it served the company so well for so long.

As a whole, it is a breath of fresh air to see an analysis that is critical of Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway. It really goes to show that Stansberry Research is truly dedicated to a diverse set of opinions an open mind regarding investment.
