In a plethora of different bands who play their gigs and sell their albums, by far one of the most curious is The Chainsmokers. They change their songs in such a way that the integrity of their music does not falter them but at the same time there are no distinct features that can be labeled to them as a band as well. No one quality could lump up the information to distinguish whether or not the song one is listening to is The Chainsmokers unless the individuals happen to be one of their fans in a sea of faces that make up billions on their fanbase. They have inspired many such people with their musical creations such as Sickboy, Roses, Closer, Everybody Hates Me, and Selfie. One man and fan got so inspired and moved by their songwriting that he even got a permanent tattoo on his left forearm which depicted the lyrical artistry from one of their songs called Everybody Hates Me. Yes, the work allocated by the two have gone far beyond what one would expect from an indie/hiphop/electronic/alternative band. The song Sick Boy has especially gotten loads and loads of attention due not only to the changes which occur inside of the style and general sound of their song like usual but in the words that are in the song specifically. This evolution consisted of the words and meaning behind the words that got people up and ready to cheer on the names of The Chainsmokers. In an essence they were like whistleblowers against the collective vicious cycle that infected the masses of people using social media by instilling and establishing firm narcissistic values of thinking it’s the world to be liked by thousands of people who do not know the real person they are even talking to in the first place. This creates a false identity that is then misplaced onto the person being liked and it is all just really a facade. This is what troubled The Chainsmokers about what was going on in the world today, especially since they have been there and done that with being involved into the music industry and attaining that kind of fame themselves. They speak from experience and their song Sick Boy is a firm and transparent reflection of what it is they as artists express.
In March 2018, Buckhead, an uptown district of Atlanta, Georgia, welcomed a skin care medical facility OVME. This facility pronounced “of me.” focuses on skin care and dedicated to offering top quality, technology-based aesthetic services to the residents in the Atlanta area. Founder and CEO of OVME Dr. Mark McKenna strives to provide top-notch skin treatment at his 1500 square foot luxury facility to his patients. OVME includes secluded offices for individual consultations and four luxurious private rooms. Along with the investment of OVME in Atlanta, McKenna has plans on opening a chain of this facility nationwide as well as building an app for Botox patients that functions the same way as rideshare app, Uber. This app will provide patients with freelance practitioners who do house calls on demand and therefore an added convenience.
Licensed by the Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee Board of Examiners, New Orleans native, Dr. Mark McKenna received his medical training at the Tulane University Medical School. Upon graduation with his Doctor of Medicine and Master of Business Administration degrees, he started practicing medicine with his father while launching a real estate development firm called McKenna Venture Investments. Dr. Mark McKenna continued growing his ventures by acquiring Uptown Title, Inc. and Universal Mortgage Lending. When Hurricane Katrina destroyed homes and businesses in 2005, McKenna also lost his business investments in the area. Seeing the massive destruction in his community, he participated in the rebuilding of homes for low and middle-income area residents.
In 2007, Dr. Mark McKenna relocated Atlanta, Georgia and opened a cosmetic and wellness based practice chain called ShapeMed. This business chain focused on nutrition, weight management, hair removal, and Botox injections. In November 2014, ShapeMed sold to bix box gym chain called Lifetime Fitness, and McKenna served on the board as National Medical Director of Life Time Fitness Inc until 2016. In 2017, he founded the innovative aesthetic medical company OVME.
Dr. Mark McKenna and OVME presently partnered with the Make A Wish Foundation. This foundation helps children with life-threatening illnesses and their families by granting wishes to the children and easing the financial burden of families.
Silicon Valley has become rather well known for certain business practices. Companies in the region do tend to bring some innovative ideas. But it’s hard not to come away from the area with some less than flattering impressions.
The average Silicon Valley company often seems so caught up with appearing innovative that they become just another fish in the larger tech sea. But real innovation doesn’t blindly chase trends. Innovators do just that, they innovate. And one can easily see that when looking at GreenSky credit. And the same goes for GreenSky’s CEO, Sahm Adrangi.
The name might not create the same sparks of recognition as many other successful CEOs. In fact, many people know him in large part because of his notable reluctance to promote himself. He’s a rare counter to the flashy presences in the area.
He seldom accepts invitations to speak at conferences. And it’s even rare for him to sit down for the shortest interviews with the press. And he never parades himself in front of employees to wave novelties in front of them.
It stands in stark contrast to the other companies. But it shows as true innovation when one looks at GreenSky’s overall performance. That’s when things click and one begins to realize something. Sahm Adrangi isn’t reclusive, he’s busy guiding his company into greater and greater victories.
When one understands this simple fact it can help inform opinions on the company as a whole. For example, it makes use of up to around 17,000 contractors. And they’re well known for being able to deliver amazingly fast results. For example, letting people use apps as part of the loan process. And then using that same app to deliver a decision within seconds.
Much of GreenSky’s efficiency probably comes from Sahm Adrangi himself. He puts results far ahead of publicity within his professional life. And Sahm Adrangi also clearly wants his company to focus first and foremost on efficient practices which benefit both GreenSky and customers alike. Given the success of both Adrangi and GreenSky, one can see that there’s quite a bit of merit to the idea.

Robert Deignan is a businessman who lives and works in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area. He grew up in Fort Lauderdale and attended a private, Roman Catholic high school called St. Thomas Aquinas High School. After graduating in 1992 he attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He graduated in 1995 with a bachelor of science degree in business management.
After working for a few years, Robert Deignan became an entrepreneur when he co-founded a company called FanLink, Inc. in 1998. This company offered a way for fans of sports, musicians, and other live events a way to avoid the lines by getting tickets through their phone. About three years later he left this company in order to join iS3, Inc. as their executive vice president. This is a privately held company which develops software applications. This includes antivirus and antimalware products so that people and businesses can keep their computer systems safe.
After working for iS3, Inc., for over nine years Robert Deignan once again launched a new company. It was in August 2011 that he co-founded Inbound Call Experts (ICE), LLC. He is now the chief executive officer of this firm which is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. He recently renamed his company as Advanced Tech Support (ATS) Digital Services. He has a call center which provides premium support services to customers of a number of different software applications. His company has been certified by AppEsteem Corp. His company can provide support both over the phone as well as having customers authorize remote access screen sharing.
When talking about what his company offers to consumers, Robert Deignan said that they provide comprehensive support so that they can get the most out of the software applications they own. He saw that his company pretty much did everything that AppEsteem required for certification so he tied up some loose ends and his company became the first one have a call center certified. He wanted others in the tech industry, such as security firms and software vendors, to know that using his company’s services was a very good choice for them.

Prior to that Lavin had a successful banking career before turning his attention to starting a financial services company.

It was through that firm Sheldon Lavin first heard about the OSI Group.
Originally founded as a family-owned butcher shop and meat market by Otto Kolschowsky in 1909, the company was called Otto & Sons when they first contacted Lavin in 1973.

Dr. Jennifer Walden knows exactly what it means to be a woman working in a male-dominated industry. Dr. Walden is a board-certified plastic surgeon her own practice in her hometown of Austin, Texas. She is one of only 851 women in America with the certification. More than 8100 male plastic surgeons in the country are board certified. Dr. Walden believes the lack of women surgeons in the field has a lot to do with the effect pursuing such a career could have on family aspirations. The path to becoming a plastic surgeon requires a minimum of five years of education after the completion of medical school which requires women that are desiring to have children to delay this dream until later in life.
Dr. Jennifer Walden believes there are definite advantages to being a female plastic surgeon. First of all, 91% of cosmetic surgery that is performed in the country is done on women. This gives women surgeons like Dr. Walden an upper hand because the majority of patients are not interesting in becoming a replica of the mail ideal for female beauty.
Dr. Walden explains that most women seek cosmetic surgery solutions to address undesirable changes to their bodies that make them feel subconscious. Many of Dr. Walden’s patients express that they feel much more comfortable communicating with a female plastic surgeon when discussing certain parts of their bodies. Her patients also feel secure that she will not be judgemental towards them.
Dr. Walden credits her bedside manner with the fact she has been in the shoes of many of her patients. A mother of twin boys, Dr. Walden experienced unwanted changes in her own body following her pregnancy and sought the services of a cosmetic surgeon to correct the issues. She also shares with her patients that she has had a botox procedure done as well as a tightening of the skin to the face. It is this ability to relate to her patients that has resulted in the practice of Dr. Jennifer Walden becoming so popular in Austin.
In early 1998, one of the most memorable presentations of the Academy Awards ever featured a huge night for “Titanic,” but it also highlighted another movie that has truly stood the test of time. “Good Will Hunting,” which won two Oscars while being nominated for a total of nine, still strongly resonates with audiences today.
The producer of that film, Lawrence Bender, has had and continues to have a storied career in Hollywood.
Having already been nominated for an Academy Award as a producer when Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” earned a Best Picture nod several years earlier, Lawrence Bender was once again in that position when “Good Will Hunting” was nominated in that category.
While the film, directed by Gus Van Sant, could not overcome the momentum that “Titanic” had in many categories, it did win the Best Actor in a Supporting Role trophy for the late Robin Williams, as well as the Best Original Screenplay award for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
Lawrence Bender is most often linked with Quentin Tarantino given the fact that he has produced the majority of the director’s films, all of which have been successful in a variety of ways. For example, Lawrence Bender once again received the Best Picture nomination in 2010 for producing Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.”
Because Lawrence Bender has worked and continues to work so much with Quentin Tarantino, it is easy to forget that he has had many other successes with very different films and filmmakers.
“Good Will Hunting” in some ways might be his crowning achievement. The film truly launched the insanely successful careers of two multidimensional movie stars who continue to be extremely important to the industry. Additionally, “Good Will Hunting” solidified Robin Williams as a Hollywood legend. Meanwhile, other actors from the film have gone on to achieve great success, including Casey Affleck who recently won an Oscar for Best Actor.
Lawrence Bender hails from a family of Jewish background from the Bronx and spent his childhood in New Jersey. He graduated from the University of Maine, and originally pursued a career as a dancer before breaking into the film industry after suffering an injury.
