The release of The Chainsmokers latest single, “Side Effects” comes as the DJ duo has returned to their dance music roots after stepping far outside their comfort zone. In 2017, the release of “Closer” marked the start of a run of hits for the musical partners which saw new music released every six weeks from their debut album, “Memories… Do Not Open.”
Since this initial run of new music, The Chainsmokers have been working to define their image as they evolve into one of theworld’s most renowned dance music partnerships. The transition has seen them move from a DJ residency in a Las Vegas club to playing 20,000 seater arenas around the world. This has seen the duo divide their time between a live band and their DJ duties as they have explored exactly what their fans want from the duo for the future.
The Chainsmokers have never been shy of moving forward with their creativity after the current incarnation of the band was created from the ashes of a previous collaboration. Founding member, Alex Pall was involved in a collaboration with another DJ in New York City, which led to initial success before Andrew Taggart joined the duo to create the music he and Pall have taken to new heights for electronic dance music specialists.
To mark the release of “Side Effects” with long-time collaborator Emily Warren, The Chainsmokers played an intimate gig for friends and fans at the Hollywood Palladium. After spending so much time playing large arena’s, the duo explained they enjoyed the experience of a pressure-free environment filled with their biggest fans. The performance side of the duo is now more important than ever before with a drummer now a mainstay of their live shows and Taggart taking lead vocals on a regular basis. Both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have stepped out from behind the DJ booth to sing on their records which give the duo a major sense of ownership over their songs.
OSI Group has been a global powerhouse in the food industry for many years; having more than 20,000 employees across 17 countries, it’s easy to see that the company’s management has striven to keep their growing momentum since day one. Their global prowess has been attributed to its strong leadership, culture of excellence, and its long history of strategic business partnerships.
OSI Group’s modern chapter has continued to experience steady growth under the leadership of chief operating officer (COO) David McDonald, making them one of the world’s largest multi-billion dollar companies. Much like OSI Group, David McDonald had to start from square one in order to develop himself as one of the most influential forces in the company’s success. For over three decades, David McDonald had been rising through the company’s ranks from project manager to president through his rigorous work, and his passion for keeping customers a priority. His commitment for excellence had been present even before his involvement as a project manager, receiving accolades for his academic achievements at Iowa State University.
The recipe for the privately owned company’s success didn’t stop at McDonald’s leadership and work ethic, but also incorporated the company’s hardwired goal to stick to its roots and keep the company identity as a food distributor. Founded by Otto Kolschowsky, the company emerged as a meat market to cater to the ever expanding German migrant population in early 1900’s Chicago. Within a decade, the meat market had expanded into a wholesale food distributor and in 1928 was eventually re-branded as Otto and Sons.
OSI Group didn’t stagnate and remained a local distributor for the Chicago area, as the second generation of company owners looked for better avenues to expand the business. During the post WWII economic boom, Otto and Sons came into a deal with the ever-expanding McDonald’s fast food chain and was immediately catapulted as one of the most profitable food distributors in the world. Otto and Sons was able to use the McDonald’s brand’s innovation in franchising to to become the primary beef distributor for their franchises. This smart move on behalf of Otto and Sons eventually led to the company’s transition into the OSI Group global brand which we now recognize today.
For more than 100 years, OSI Group has continued to develop as one of the world’s best examples of the American dream and the will to win through unshakable perseverance.

Betsy DeVos was born into a well-off, conservative family in the town of Holland, Michigan. She attended a private Christian high school as a youngster and went on to study at Calvin College, a private Christian college, where she received her Bachelor of Art’s degree in business economics. She became very involved in the politics on the Calvin College campus and continued her interest in politics after. Betsy DeVos served the state of Michigan as the Chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party and has been a large part of many important buildings and schools in the state, as well. She has donated large sums of money to the educational sector in the state and the country, at-large, and has been a proponent of educational choice ever since she was younger.
Betsy DeVos is now the Secretary of Education for the United States, but her confirmation was a close one and filled with controversy. Her political opponents attempted to make her look like a fool but friends who are close to her revealed that she was just slightly irritated with the fiasco. Many Washington insiders and other political figures have already begun to underestimate the woman; according to those who have followed Betsy DeVos for many years. They have gone on the record to admit that while she may seem amiable and silent, she is known in Michigan to be a worthy political opponent who uses her wealth and status to support the causes she believes in.
Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, has commented that Betsy DeVos is a force to be reckoned with. Mrs. DeVos called Weingarten up after her confirmation as Secretary of Education and requested a meeting with her. The pair ended up touring schools in Florida and discussing educational related matters. Betsy DeVos was even seen with Pitbull, the rapper who has gained a lot of attention for his profanity-filled lyrics. The reason for her appearance with the rapper had to do with the charter school he started up in Florida.
Betsy DeVos has worked for more than 30 years to see tax dollars used to help pay the tuition of children who want to attend private or charter schools. She has been a champion for Americans who can’t afford to send their children to these kinds of schools and is responsible for Detroit being the home of the densest area of charter schools. Many American families have her to thank for the opportunity to send their kids to a school they deem worthy.
The award-winning financial company, Infinity Group Australia, was recently featured in Joseph Roberts’ article “Financial Fitness with Graeme Holm and Infinity Group Australia.” The article was published in the Analyst of Finance, a daily financial news website. The article reveals the origins of the company and the reason why the founder is so dedicated to helping families pay off their debt as quickly as possible.
Graeme Holm and Rebecca Walker spent the majority of 2013 researching the mortgage industry. They were curious about the problems at work in the industry and why most people with a 30-year mortgage were only paying the minimum payments. He discovered that most families were living paycheck to paycheck and had no way to pay more on their mortgage.
This discovery led Holm to create Infinity Group Australia, a brokerage company dedicated to helping families throughout the entire loan process, instead of just abandoning them after the loan is signed. Instead, Infinity Group Australia was designed to help families pay off their 30-year mortgage in 7-10 years, saving them thousands of dollars. They are able to accomplish this through the philosophy of financial fitness.
Financial fitness is something the company creates with each customer. Not only do they create a detailed budgeting plan where the family can only spend the cash allotted for the week, but they are also provided with reports. The reports are provided each month by their personal banker to help the family pay off their loan as quickly as possible. The report reveals whether they are hitting their benchmarks or if they need to adjust their budget. This helps the families understand the difference between a desire and a necessity, helping them stay accountable for their goals. Clients will get another report at the six-month mark, providing a detailed review of their spending over the past six months to help them reach their goals of reducing the family mortgage.
Holm created this system because he believes in helping families by providing guidance and support throughout the whole loan process and the client’s journey. He likes to think of the company as providing personal trainers for finances. He recognizes that people will get better results with precise guidance from experts in the field.
This philosophy has led the company to win numerous awards but they feel the biggest reward is the result their clients get. Generally, their clients will pay off their 30-year mortgage in 7-10 years. This will eliminate nearly $40,000 in debt in the first year.
