Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are creative geniuses at what it is they execute inside of the circle of musical vocabulary and language. They speak volumes upon volumes of clear and distinct messages which penetrate the diffusion of social responsibility that permeate throughout the subject matter of social media and it’s hideous devices it plants inside of the human mind when it cones down to what their social profile pages look like and how many likes they will receive for their sense of personal self respect and worth. It’s importance is inflated much like a narcissist does to one’s sense of self. Like a narccisist constantly seeks the attention, approval, hatred, fear, adulation, and recognition of others around them in the real world, such is more than a parallel to those who seek much of the same resources from the masses who also misrepresent themselves with facades and false identifies, usually by only showing their best side possible or by eliciting fear from others through direct messenging like internet bullies do so often. This is the reservoir that fed Sick Boy. Sick boy did take a darker turn, but only because that is the identity of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. They teach in their music that even though the sickness in the online social community is discernibly bad, it is an ugly reality we must tolerate when wanting to use the online community sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The Chainsmokers are against the idea and it is something they encounter everyday inside the confines of the musical industry. Even when their music deviated from the normal and intimate music that they alchemized in Closer and Roses, the fans were taken aback in wonder and awe as they let the lyrical compositions sink in deeply into their spirits. Music is powerful, and Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart waste no efforts in injecting the emotions that rarely get broadcasted to the people through hip hop and electronic genres like theirs. The fact that they incorporate an aspect of humanness that other sounds are mostly void of is perhaps the one quality that makes Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers truly unique and beautiful afterall.



Stream Energy is one of the fastest growing energy providers in the country today. The company was founded in 2004, and in just a short amount of time, they managed to expand beyond their home state of Texas. Illinois and Delaware are just two of the most recent states that were added into the company’s list of areas where they are currently operating, and locals are satisfied and contented with the service that the company provides. Stream Energy has more extravagant plans for future expansions, and they are excited to announce this information to their clients and investors who are positively thinking of their future.

Aside from their expansion plans, Stream Energy also revealed their newest company department that would handle all philanthropic activities of the company, called the Stream Cares Foundation. One of the first activities that the group did was to offer assistance to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The hurricane destroyed much of coastal Texas, and scientists are stating that it dumped 56 inches of rain, causing massive floods even in big cities. Many Texans have lost their properties and pets, and Stream Cares aims to provide these people with assistance and relief that would help them get through the disaster.

The leaders of the company  believe that helping the people is already embedded in their DNAs. Stream Cares Foundation is the result of their objective of assisting those who are in need, as a form of gratitude for all of the profits and the support that they received since 2004. The Stream Cares Foundation has launched programs all across the state of Texas that would help the victims of the hurricane to receive necessities that they need to survive. They will also receive financial assistance from the company, and according to Stream Energy, they will also mobilize their teams to fix the energy flow in areas that are greatly affected.

After the hurricane, a lot of electric posts have given up and were lifted above the ground. What Stream Energy will do is to restore power in the areas that have been damaged significantly, and they wanted to finish the project as soon as possible.

Lawrence Bender is in the midst of an impressive career as a Hollywood producer. Bender, a Bronx native and University of Maine Civil Engineering graduate, kicked off his highlight reel career with a string of critical and commercial hits, including Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Inglourious Basterds, Good Will Hunting and Pulp Fiction. However, An Inconvenient Truth may be Lawrence Bender’s best work to date.

An Inconvenient Truth is a documentary about the present and future consequences of global warming. The film shows in no uncertain terms what our society has done to cause global warming, how we are failing to correct our mistakes and what we must do to reverse our irresponsible and reprehensible treatment of this planet before it is too late. The film is headlined by former Vice President Al Gore. For Vice President Gore, who is featured heavily throughout the film, which follows him on a environmental issues lecture tour, the film is clearly a passion project.

An Inconvenient Truth is engrossing from start to finish and does an outstanding job of clearly informing the audience about the dire circumstances the planet Earth and its inhabitants are facing. It is my favorite Lawrence Bender film, because it is more than just a film.

An Inconvenient Truth won Academy Awards for Best Original Song and Best Documentary Feature. It is not the only Oscar-winning film Lawrence Bender has brought to the big screen. Lawrence Bender also produced Academy Award-winning films Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds.

David Giertz is concerned with the insufficient retirement plans by most Americans who do not save enough money for life after retirement. A good number of people begin withdrawing social security disbursements very early in life cutting down on the amount they will be paid out. It also implies to low monthly payments as people are not patient enough to wait for retirement age. The mistakes come about as people do not start saving money early enough in their lives. Saving money six years to retirement can be difficult unlike when you start saving in your 20’s making it a disciplined culture early in life.

Young people should take advantage of the various retirement plans available in the US as advised by David. Roth individual retirement accounts (IRAs) provide one of the best retirement plans in the US because they are run by the government and area employer-supported. Individuals can contribute no more than $5,500 for those below 50 years and $6,500 for those over. Since most single people cannot contribute fully to their Roth IRAs unless they earn $120,000-135,000, it is crucial for them to start saving when they are still young.

410 (k)s are another type of savings account. Starting this year, yearly contributions for 401(k)accounts will rise to $18,500. David recommends that young people take the Savers’ Credit known as the Retirement Savings Contribution Credit seriously. They can make annual contributions of up to $31,500 when they file as singles before they enter into a marriage where couples reporting filing status as married contributes $63,000 annually.

For health savings account, young people should start saving the $3,450 for singles, and when they hit 65 years, they can spend their share anything without penalties. David Giertz says that the earlier one plans for retirement, the more comfortable they will manage to contribute towards the plan avoiding panic when retirement nears. David Giertz has over 30 years experience working in financial services, developing his skills and knowledge as a financial adviser in retirement and other areas.
