The Chainsmokers have had a string of top selling singles over the last few years. That does not mean that Alex Pall is resting on his laurels. The way a band improves is to evolve. He and his band mate, Alex Taggart, have already made one transition in their careers. Both started as DJs in New York City, and the move towards producing singles with singers was already a shift in their style. They are ready to make the next move. As writers of their own music, they now feel the time is right to put their voices center stage as well. The Chainsmokers have a history of working with the biggest names in the music industry, and they have certainly found success using that format. Their hit with Halsey was one of the biggest selling singles in the last few years.
Their writing is so personal that they felt that they should be the ones singing. They are not shutting the door on working with the best talent, but they feel such a connection with their song writing that they are proud to give voice to it. They have already made one major step, and they now feel that it is time for the next evolution in their careers. The fans have already embraced their decision, and they are happy to hear the Djs sing their own hits. The sound of the music has also shifted. The band is conscious of some of the changes they see in society, and they will be using some of those darker themes in their songs.
The move will bring a closer connection to their audience who will now be able to hear the Chainsmokers sing about the big themes they are writing about. The same hit qualities that made them so successful will still be there, but now fans will be able to hear directly from Pall and Taggart.
The Chainsmokers is a duo group that has proven beyond doubt to be unique in the music industry. Its music genre is electro-pop music and electro dance music. The group has been able to stand out from other groups that produce music in the same genre by employing creativity to always give their fans new music. They always believe that incorporating something new in their music will always make their fans interested in their music that is why Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart push themselves to always do better.
The Chainsmokers also has a competent producer who ensures that the Chainsmokers give out not only just music but quality music to their fans. The group always produces music with the goal of connecting to their fans at a deeper level. Their recent release ‘closer’ back in 2016, which featured the new upcoming artist Halsey was their breakthrough. The new track broke a lot of records for the Chainsmokers where it was the leading number one song in the billboard top 100 songs and remained number one much longer than expected. It was rated as the fourth longest-running number one hit in U.S history.
The music track made the chain-smokers to be nominated in the Grammy awards in the same year. The duo group later won the Grammy Award for Best Dance and Recording later in 2017. Due to their hard work and efforts, the Chainsmokers have also managed to receive other awards including American Music Award for favorite Electro Dance music and IHeart Radio Music Award for best collaboration. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart form the best collaboration since they share the same interests in the music industry.
The duo group gained a lot of popularity and fame from the ‘closer’ music track which went viral on the social media platforms.

Some of the other hits released by the duo group include this feeling, selfie, don’t let me down which have also managed to catch people’s attention.
Infinity Group Australia, founded by financial expert Graeme Holm, has been making money hand over fist since day one. Since its founding in 2013, the company has been helping Australians of all stripes to better their personal finances and reduce their debt. Under Holm’s direction, the company adopted a customer-driven business model that has served them well. In the beginning, they had only one location and a couple of desks. Now they have five locations and a shelf full of awards for customer service, product innovation, and a whole lot more.
Graeme Holm has worked at the highest levels of banking for over 17 years. Using this experience, he founded Infinity Group Australia after noticing how many people end up getting a raw deal from their financial institutions. His wife and business partner Rebecca Walker has also been a big part of his success. Graeme Holm got the idea for Infinity while doing a six-month study researching the problems in the Australian mortgage market. He found that the average family did not receive and did not have access to the right kind of advice, resources, and support that they needed. Infinity was founded in an attempt to remedy this problem.
Holm is known as one of the world’s best financial coaches. As he elaborated upon during an interview with the people at Ideamensch, most people that he works with are just average folks living paycheck to paycheck. He explains that money management is a big part of their problem, because they just don’t have financial discipline. That’s where an expert financial coach comes in. A skillful financial coach can help a person to stick to their plans. The coach also gives detailed feedback on business results. In the same interview, we are also told that he practices these organizational habits in his personal life.
This is the means by which Graeme Holm hopes to carry out his goal of transforming the market in a new and radical way, simply by helping others to prosper as he has. While it is hard to gauge results for something like this because everyone starts at a different point, it is worth noting that 100% of Infinity’s clients have paid more on their loans within 12 months than they paid for twelve years prior. It’s hard to argue with results like that.
If you are an australian who needs some financial help, this is a good man to call. Visit Infinity’s website to find out what they can do for you.

Secretary Of Education Betsy DeVos Receives Support From Readers Of The LA Times
The newly appointed and confirmed secretary of education under president Donald Trump, Betsy DeVos has received strong encouragement from some of the subscribers of the LA Times newspaper. Below is a brief summary of some of the reader responses in response to an LA Times editorial that actually tried to portray secretary DeVos in a negative manner and that said she would somehow be bad for education of our children.
One reader and commentator named Jerry Glass from Lakewood, California said that Betsy DeVos’ plan for expanding vouchers is actually a positive. Jerry pointed out that many low income and minority parents are strong supporters of school vouchers. This is because giving parents the options of sending their kids to their school of choice makes it more likely that they will go to a good school and receive a better education that will help them later on in life.
Jerry Glass also took a swipe at the so called notion that public schools are somehow democratically controlled. Most public schools are firmly controlled by public teacher unions who are often more concerned about their own jobs and bottom line then they are with the success of their students and the school. School choice and vouchers for parents, which Betsy DeVos espouses, puts the success and needs of students first. This is what we should be doing and what secretary of education Devos will implement in her role as the chief executive education official in the United States.

Thanks to the leadership and contributions of Betsy DeVos as well as many other people at the AFC, over a million students now attend the school of their choice.
Mrs. DeVos has also helped her husband, Dick DeVos, launch the West Michigan Aviation Academy. It is a public charter school that has a curriculum that focuses on preparing students for aviation related careers such as pilots and aerospace engineers. The school is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan and is tuition free for students admitted into the school.

Ricardo Guimaraes is the heir as well as the President of Banco BMG. He is a successful banker who has been in charge of the family business since 1998. He has managed the bank to become a leader in providing payroll loans in all of Brazil, displaying his outstanding leadership and administration skills. The focus of the bank has been on providing customers who have a low level of default with credit at low-interest rates. This has seen the bank prosper over the years.
Guimaraes is a football fan, and his love for the game goes beyond this. He served as a sponsor and president of Atletico Mineiro Club, a team of which he is an avid fan. He saw an opportunity to use sports marketing as a way to strengthen his brand by spreading awareness. By having the three orange letters printed on the shirts of players all over the country, BMG has gone ahead to receive visibility as a brand. Wiki has more cover on him.
Sports advertising is a high-cost affair. However, Ricardo Guimaraes goes ahead to justify the huge cost, claiming that the financial returns and brand recognition arising from the advertising outweigh the costs incurred. He also works with impartiality when it comes to the sponsorships offered by BMG. Despite his support of Atletico Mineiro, Mr. Guimaraes states that BMG does not root for any specific team.
Through the many sponsorships offered by the bank, BMG has received brand recognition. This is a natural process as the games that are played are broadcast on national television or observed by an enormous audience from a certain region. Those that watch these matches end up becoming familiar with the brand. Today, BMG ranks as the top sponsor of football in South America’s largest country. It also ranks as the company that enjoys the highest financial returns arising from sports advertising.
Pressure in the market pushed Ricardo Guimaraes to diversify the products that the bank offers, so as to cater for the new customers drawn by the awareness created by sports advertising. To do this, he went ahead to buy two financial institutions, GE Money Brazil and the Schahin Bank. This move saw BMG compete in other areas as well as offer new products. BMG was also able to offer various types of loans, all in a bid to cater to various customer profiles. The sponsorships by BMG also go a long way in increasing the confidence of potential customers.
