Doe Deere; Creating the American Dream

Doe Deere was born and raised for 17 years as a Jewish girl in Xenia Vorotova in Izhevsk, Russia. Here is often where should would dream of moving to America. She often looked to movies, music and magazines for what it would be like to live in America. As just 17 years old her mother, younger sister and herself finally made that dream a reality and moved over to America in search of a better life like many immigrants coming to America. Like many they made their way to New York City. According to her they believed that if they could make it in New York, they could make it anywhere.

Once here the reality of what New York City was like set in. With it being much larger than their half-million population at home they realized that it was going to be much hard to make it regardless of their desire to work. With jobs not coming through her mother started cleaning apartments and Doe started taking care of people’s pets. With very little left to their name they were forced to check into a homeless shelter where they spent the next six months. They would attend local food banks for meals and save all their pennies hoping that one day they would be out of there. This is where Doe starting daydreaming about becoming a fashion designer to escape her reality.

Than in 1999 they caught a lucky break by being introduced to Dorchen Leidholdt who helped her mother get her first job, her sister get into Columbia and Doe into the Fashion Institute. They were also able to move into their own apartment. It was far from luxurious but it was theirs. The late 2000s is when the moniker Doe Deere came about and by 2008 Lime Crime had been founded. This has become a very successful company employing 35 people in Los Angeles. Doe hopes to inspire many and to remind many that just because you did not start out as an American does not mean that one does not become an American.

The Chainsmokers and Halseys Closer Finally Attains Diamond Status

It is all smiles for The Chainsmokers and Halsey as their hit song “Closer” is now certified diamond by Recording Industry Association of America. The song, released in 2016, was recognized for hitting 10 million sales in the United States.

The Chainsmokers and Halsey broke the news through updates on their instagram accounts. The updates featured their photos holding portraits to the effect that the song has now been certified 10-times platinum. The news broke out earlier before RIAA could update the same on their website. RIAA had last year certified global smash back as 7-times platinum. It had improved profusely to deserve the certification.

The “Closer” came all the way from multi-platinum to diamond, otherwise 10-times platinum. In 2016, airwaves couldn’t have a break as the song went all the way up to the Top Hot 100. In the late summer, the song ruled the airwaves and stayed at the top of the chart for quite a while.

The Chainsmokers is a DJ duo made up of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. They have released other huge hits such as ‘Something Just Like This” and “Don’t Let Me Down”. The song is in record for controlling the listing of all-genre singles for several consecutive frames. In the listing, it surprised many when it beat other huge releases to take the 4th position in the longest-running No.1 hit songs in the history of the United States.

“Closer” made the Grammy award-winning DJ duo and Halsey proud as it garnered them nominations and awards. In fact, it earned The Chainsmokers one of their pioneer nominations. Although it did not win in all categories in 2016, the song recorded huge amount of sales, streams and massive airplay. It was also featured in Billboard charts such as Electronic Hits/Hot Dance chart. It topped Electronic Hits/Hot Dance chart and maintained the position for quite a while. However, “The Middle” overthrew them from the position.

While the DJ duo had released a couple of songs that featured in top 10 by 2016, “Closer” was a major achievement as its sales sky-rocketed and made them more famous. For Halsey, she had proved to be a rising talent with a couple of songs by her name and big fan base. However, the song she did with The Chainsmokers was her breakthrough single.

Betsy Devos

Most people don’t realize that Betsy Devos comes from an education background. While she may not have been a teacher, her mother was one. Devos said that she looked to her mother for guidance when she was in college, and she was one of the reasons that she got involved with education reform. For many years, Devos has been an education reformer in Michigan, where she brought legislation like “Kids First!” Coalition to the forefront.

 

Her husband has also joined her before. Dick Devos, son of Amway’s Rich Devos, has been right beside his wife all this time. Even now, he works in Washington as she runs office of the 11th US Secretary of Education. He was appointed to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Management Advisory Council in 2017. She has been sweeping the country with education reforms since 2016 when she was appointed by President Trump.

 

There’s no question that Betsy Devos believes in educational choice as the way to change and improve America’s education system. She has spoken about it vehemently in interviews, including one with “60 Minutes” and hard-hitting Lesley Stahl who asked Devos whether she thought that she had seen any success.

 

The question comes after Devos has only been in office for two years, and not all states have been on board with her changes to education systems. She does state that the two most successful states are Louisiana and Florida. For one, Florida has the most educational choice options, according to Devos.

 

In truth, Florida does have some great educational programs. Students can choose to go to magnet programs, virtual schools, homeschooling programs, charter schools, and private schools if they are zoned for a failing school especially. However, students also can go to private school on a scholarship. Devos states that most people simply don’t understand how these programs work, which is why they are so opposed.

 

Devos says that philanthropy is the reason that these programs have been successful. Donors like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates have contributed greatly to educational choice, backing Devos as she looks to gain more political power in education in other states. She wants to bring educational choice to all states by the end of her term.

 

Devos has also been charged with school safety reform. After numerous school shootings, President Trump asked Devos to head up a school safety reform movement, in which schools would receive more security and help to prevent violence. Most schools started receiving new policies and regulations in the summer with implementation completed before the 2018-2019 school year.

 

While the Devos family continues to move into tighter political circles, it will be interesting to see who runs for presidency next in the republican party after Trump.

Jake Gottlieb Takes New Fund Altium Public

As technology keeps advancing rapidly, so does the world of medicine. Investors like Jake Gottlieb make it a point to stay informed about the latest developments to give the best investment opportunities for his clients. With decades of experience in the healthcare sector, he is looking forward to getting his new firm Altium off the ground and running. Even though they just made their first public offering earlier this year, they have already started building up an impressive team.

For the first time in decades, Jacob Gottlieb will be working with Stuart Weisbrod. Weisbrod is a co-founder of the Merlin BioMed Group in which Jake Gottlieb worked with during the biotech revolution of the early 2000s. With their experience and investment know-how combined, people are expecting some big things out of Altium. The new firm Altium is a hedge fund that invests into companies within the healthcare sector that have gone public.

Altium is the newest hedge fund by Jake Gottlieb who is still in the process of shutting the doors of his former company. While some may have moved on to a different industry after being rocked by a scandal like Jake Gottlieb’s Visium experiences, he refuses to let the bad actions of others destroy his career. He remains adament that he had no knowledge and nothing to do with the illegal trading that had been happening behind the scenes involving a small group of Visium executives.

Altium has already made a significant investment into a biotech company that Jake Gottlieb thinks may have a considerable amount of potential to change the lives of millions of patients living with diabetes. They recently purchased 5.61% of the shares of Oramed, a company founded in 2006. Currently, injecting insulin through a syringe or pump is essentially the only way to take the medication. Researchers have been trying to make an oral version of the medication for decades but have not had much success in keeping the protein viable long enough to be absorbed. With Oramed’s technology that is in the process of FDA approval, patients may not have to deal with the discomfort of injections anymore.

They are expected to close at $5.5 billion by the end of 2018.

The Japan based company is seeking to expand its portfolio through strategic acquisitions. The purchase of Fortress Investment Group gives SoftBank access to world-class knowledge on asset-based investing, significant relationships with leading principals, and ability to extract value from a whole new group of industry sectors. SoftBank could also attempt to expand $100 billion tech investment fund through Fortress.

Despite its acquisition, Fortress will continue to be recognized for innovation in leadership, commitment to partnerships, and keeping ahead of industry standards through technology.

Malcolm CasSelle Puts His President Hat Back On With Introduction of WAX Platform

Before Malcolm CasSelle became CIO for in-game asset seller OPSkins, he served as CTO and president of New Ventures for Tronc Inc. A experienced entrepreneur, executive, and investor CasSelle had made some rounds before settling with OPSkins. His first foray was a web-based start-up called NetNoir which he co-founded. His storied career has taken him across the sea to Hong Kong. He has served as founder, CEO, and top-level exec for numerous firms. His work focusing on social media, payment solutions, and even web design. CasSelle is now reclaiming the title of president with the formation of a new market platform called WAX. WAX, or Worldwide Asset eXchange, is a P2P market that consists of a network of games.

P2P stands for player to player, and in WAX’s system such trades can be made cross game. This means assets purchased from one game can be sold for assets from another. A big deal in the gaming world. OPSkins is currently a global leader in digital in-game wares, which makes WAX a profitable step to take. What makes WAX magical is the concept of blockchain technology. Blockchain tech is slowly changing the entire face of cryptocurrency, and opening the doors to a wide variety of possibilities. Chief among them being the operation of sales in a decentralized market.

Blockchains eliminate fraud by ensuring the members of a transaction are legitimate. It does this by compositing lists of transaction data for users, identifying any and all examples of unscrupulous behavior. Those records allow prospective buyers to be duly warned. According to CasSelle the possibilities for WAX do not stop there.

Malcolm CasSelle was an early stage investor in Bitcoin and Facebook. He has always had a good understanding of the ebb and flow of digital markets. Blockchains’ ability to open up decentralized markets is the future of virtual companies. WAX could be at the forefront of what makes cryptocurrency cross the threshold of mainstream. All it takes is for gaming giants to take interest and create their own marketplace.
