Alex Pall From Chainsmokers Searches For An Identity

The new Interview with The Chainsmokers by Mathias Rosenzweig, for Andy Warhol’s INTERVIEW magazine, features Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall reflecting on their past success and the future of their brand and electronic dance duo “The Chainsmokers”.

Through the course of the interview, the artists share what separates them from their contemporaries such as Deadmau5, by instead of remaining hidden behind complex production and flashy lights the duo aims to bring a vulnerable and intimate edge to their music and their public personas.

Though both produce the music within The Chainsmoker’s soundscape, Alex shares he began his career in music as a DJ, working at an art gallery before deciding to commit to music full time. Andrew, the other half of the duo had just finished College in Syracuse and decided upon meeting Alex’s manager to travel up from Maine to New York City where the two immediately hit it off. Alex had already started The Chainsmokers but the other original member left leaving a spot that Andrew quickly and happily filled.

Using self-discovery and “constantly checking yourself” as a guide, Alex recalls the duo dedicated themselves to respecting that the music, although a way to pay the bills, was also something they deeply cared about noting, “people relate to our music on such a deeper level, and we want that to be the case more and more.” thus began their continued pursuit to make music as a way to create something unique and expressive to them as artists eventually carrying them to chart-topping success.

Mathias also does a great job of capturing Alex and Andrew’s desire to stay on the cutting edge of music closing with a quote from Alex where he remarks on Chainsmokers need to stay relevant as well as “push new boundaries and give people new experiences.” in every aspect of their art.

Something to Know about Vijay Eswaran’s Business and Personal Philosophy

Operating a business is one of the most challenging things to do in life. Most people just admire the returns on the business but they don’t take a minute to analyze the kind of challenges the businessperson goes through. Before you become a competent businessman, there are hurdles and difficulties you must first overcome. Many of the successful business people today such as Vijay Eswaran have come a long way with determination tightly held in their heart. Vijay happens to be a successful and famous philosopher who believes that service above self is the main secret to a successful business career.

Vijay believes that a great leader serves others. Forbes has listed him as one of the top philanthropists in Asia. He also serves in the World Economic Forum that helps other businesses and companies realize their potential for growth. Whenever this Forum has its yearly meeting in Davos, Vijay happens to be one of the speakers. He didn’t just become a great leader in the business world and a reputable philosopher. A lot happened for him to become so. According to Vijay, a great leader needs to have integrity. He says that integrity is the bulwark of honesty. Vijay says that a leader needs to consider ethical and moral values when defining their goals.

He also notes that patience is crucial for anyone going far. It is one of the traits that Vijay highly values. Vijay says that he doesn’t take patience just as a virtue but also as a practice he applies daily. The definition of patience that Vijay gives is that patience is a state of mind emanating serenity, calmness, and tranquility in one’s surroundings. He says that a leader with patience is an oasis for others in times of crisis and chaos.

Vijay’s view on those intending to become great entrepreneurs and leaders is that they need to avoid dictatorship. He says that a true leader needs a team to succeed while a dictator leader doesn’t see the importance of a team in whatever he does. He continues to say that while a true leader thinks about the need for perpetuity, a dictator has greed and personal prosperity driving him. He says that a leader who intends to be great doesn’t struggle to give material wealth, effort and knowledge.

David Giertz’s Tips on Preparing for a Comfortable Retirement

David Giertz is the President of Nationwide Financial Distributors. David Giertz says that most Americans cannot retire comfortably because they do not save enough money throughout life. Retirement can be expensive, and this expense is further exacerbated by people who enter retirement early or who live healthy and enjoyable retired lives. Additionally, individuals at the retirement-age begin to pull out social security disbursements too early, which reduces the total amount of money the Social Security program pays out. David Giertz says that best way to ensure a comfortable retirement is to begin to save money at an early age. This means those who begin to save money at a youthful age will be better off once retirement age has been reached.

In the United States, Roth IRAs (individual retirement accounts) are an extremely popular type of retirement account that is run by the government and aided by the employer. Account holders also contribute by adding an equivalent amount from his or her paycheck every month. There is a limit set for each year, and, once that limit is met, no more contributions can be made to the Roth IRA. In 2017, the limit was set to $5,500 (or $6,500 for people who would be 50 by the end of the year). Further, people who file taxes as single or head of household cannot contribute fully until they make an income ranging from $120,000 through $135,000, and married people filing jointly may achieve the limit when income is $189,000 through $199,000 (those filing separately can only reach the limit if income is between $0 and $10,000).

A 401(k) is another type of savings account that is controlled by the government, while employers help contribute until a limit is reached. It is also recommended that individuals use the Saver’s Credit because limits increased there in 2018. People who rely on employer based retirement savings accounts generally are unable to deduct contributions from the IRA. Health savings account limits are also increasing, and, once retirement age is reached, money in these accounts can be used for anything.

LimeCrime: Still The Best Vegan Beauty Brand

LimeCrime is a makeup brand that has skyrocketed from a fringe brand to a main staple of millions of women’s beauty collection. The company was founded by Doe Deere, the Queen of the Unicorns. The unicorn is the mascot of the beauty brand. Doe Deere designed it that way to encourage LimeCrime users to never be afraid to stand out as a beautiful unicorn in a sea of horses. Doe Deere originally founded Lime Crime simply because she was unable to find the bright and bold shades that she wanted to wear herself. At the time, she had no idea that so many women out there were looking for exactly the same thing. She also only wanted to wear makeup that was vegan friendly and contained natural ingredients. LimeCrime is approved by both Peta and the Leaping Bunny Association.

The company also recently launched a line of hair dye that has become exceedingly popular. The Unicorn Hair Dye is semi-permanent and is, of course, vegan friendly. Doe Deere has become a hair icon with her shades varying from pink to bright blue and she designed the Unicorn Hair Dye to allow her makeup line fans to be able to do the same without a permanent color change. The colors come in purple, blue, hot pink, green and bright orange. The colors have been widely well received and more shades are expected to follow. It is a great way to spice up your look, but yet be able to wash the color out over the span of a month or so. Doe Deere uses the shades herself and she frequently switches up the shades of her hair without any permanent damage.

Another hot commodity that was recently released by LimeCrime is the Venus eyeshadow palette. The eyeshadow palette got its name due to the fact that the shades are worthy of a goddess. The palette contains 18 eyeshadow colors as well as 4 finishes and 1 shade of coverage that can be used on any part of the face, including cheeks and eyes. The palette contains shades worthy of a goddess, including roses, dazzling pinks, berry shades and bronzed neutral colors. The colors are designed to stay all day and are packaged in a dazzling pink box that also includes a mirror. The entire style of both the box and the shades is designed to mirror the goddess Venus herself.

Securus Technologies Builds Drone Detection and Prevention System

American inmates are starting to contact outsiders to help deliver various contraband by the use of drones. There were many sightings of these drones flying around prison zones and reports made by U.S. corrections officials that had actual evidence of drones being used to smuggle in drugs, paraphernalia, weapons and cellphones. Using drones as a delivery system is now a becoming a consideration for some major retailers in the U.S., but the idea of dangerous individuals using it to help bring weapons inside our prisons is daunting. All of this will hopefully come to an end because a new technology is now available for officers to help counter drone smuggling.


The Texas-based Securus Technologies had recently created a drone detection system that uses a powerful digital antennae structure that is extremely effective. The company has worked side by side with their technology partners for over 18 months to test and develop this technology. They have already launched active pilot programs that utilize drone detection technology across many U.S. prisons. This will help bring to light new methods and tactics for the drone detection so the Securus team can perfect this new technology as soon as possible.


On February 23, 2018, the annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service took place at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada and Securus Technologies took home a total of three highly coveted awards at this year’s event. The tech solutions company won a Gold for “Customer Service Complaints Team of the Year” and Ms. Zelperita Jackson won a Silver for “Customer Service Professional of the Year.” The Stevie Awards honor and recognize thousands of organizations of every industry from around the world.
