Chainsmokers Remain At the Top of the Game

The Chainsmokers is an American DJ and production duo consisting of members Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Alex Pall met Andrew Taggart through their manager, Adam Alpert, and formed as an Electronic Dance Music duo in 2012 in New York City. Alex grew up DJing, and attended the New York University for art history and music business. Andrew on the other hand attended Syracuse University, and at the time of meeting Pall, interned at Interscope Records. Andrew had expressed an interest in DJing, and posted some of his original work on SoundCloud.

The Chainsmokers achieved their breakthrough with their single “#Selfie,” which was released in 2014 and had made it to the top 20 in several countries. In October 2015, The Chainsmokers released their debut EP “Bouquet,” featuring the single “Roses,” which reached the top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. Their music has had many other successes including “Don’t Let Me Down,” which became their first top 5 single on Billboard Hot 100, and won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording at the 59th awards ceremony. Their song “Closer” was their first number one single on the charts. The Chainsmokers also won two American Music Awards and five iHeartRadio Music Awards.

In November 2016, The Chainsmokers released their second EP entitled “Collage.” Shortly after they released their debut studio album “Memories…Do Not Open,” in April 2017. Their album “Memories…Do Not Open,” is still very successful today as it is currently number one on the Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic charts. It has reached its 34th non-consecutive turn in the top spot, being tied with the Gorillaz’s “Demon Days.” The Chainsmokers seem to make their way back to the top of the charts no matter which other direction they take, and this could quite possibly be an ongoing pattern for the duo.

Betsy DeVos Makes the Proper Changes to Reform Education

The education system is something that is in dire need of changes. There are a large majority of people have questions, but few have any type of solutions to this problem. This is why I am glad that someone like Besty DeVos is in place to provide a true solution to the problems that exist in the education system.

 

She is putting her time into making some changes in the education system. There certainly has become a lot of interest in the new education system that Betsy DeVos is trying to implement, and I am eager to see what she has in store.

 

There certainly are a lot of people that are interested in the charter schools that Betsy DeVos has been talking about. This is a change in the education system that really helps kids that are in poor neighborhoods. There are a lot of people that are trying to change the way that their children learn, but few people have the idea of how they can really help their children learn more in the public education system.

 

This is why so many people are going to be interested in what Betsy DeVos has to say about the concept of charter schools and school vouchers. In this day and age there are more people that are going to be interested in hearing how Betsy DeVos can work on getting more people to have a better education with the changes that she is making.

 

This will also include getting more qualified staff members in place to teach the classes. This is something that I believe that Besty DeVos has been looking into for a long time. She is a person that already had her sight set on the changes that would be needed in order to make things better in the education system. I think that DeVos will have a good chance to make changes because she has already been observing the education system before she made changes. There definitely are a lot of people that are going to be interested in seeing how Betsy DeVos can make some lasting changes. It may not all get done during her first term, but I believe that she is going to get a lot of stuff done in time.

 

Betsy DeVos is truly excited about all that she is able to do as she steps into the education arena. I think that she has a take charge attitude, and this is going to serve her well in all that she is doing with charter schools and school vouchers. More people are going to see the work that she is doing and marvel at how she has made some positive improvements in education.

The Devos Family Foundation: Achievements in Generousity

Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ Devos was born January 8, 1958. Betsy is the only daughter of billionaire industrialist Edgar Prince , the founder of ‘Prince Corporation’, a supplier of auto parts. Betsy grew up in Holland, Michigan. She was educated in a private high school and graduated from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and political science. According to the magazine ‘Philanthropy’, during her student years, Devos ‘participated in the political life of the campus’. That is until she met Richard Marvin ‘Dick’ Dict DeVos, a multi-billionaire who ran the controlling company Amway, Alticor, from 1993 to 2002. One of the sons, Rick, works as a consultant for urban development in the company ‘Windquest Group’. Follow Betsy on Twitter

The Devos family actively participated in the republican policy for many decades, especially as donors for the needs of various candidates and parties. Since 1989, Betsy Devos have donated more than $ 17 million in 1997, of which Betsy wrote: “We expect the arrival of a good and honest power. We expect the strengthening of a conservative regulative philosophy that speaks of limiting power and respecting traditional American virtue. ” In 2010, Betsy and Dick donated $ 22.5 million to develop a project that became known as the Devonian Institute of Art Management. Currently, this organization trains, advises and supports art managers. When it became known that the Devas are planning to make a donation to the Kennedy Center, Betsy said she asked the president of the center, Michael Kaiser, to see that the given millions went to art and to training artists, and not to the professional training of managers who hire Artists’. For commercial independent (charter) schools, Betsy stated that education is a ‘closed system, closed industry and a closed market’. DeVos believes that the opening of the education market will significantly increase the choice for parents, where “privatization of the American public education system” is taking place today. ”

It is known that the family fund of Dick and Betsy, ‘The Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation’, was launched in 1989. According to the Devos family, money is allocated to “leadership cultivation, accelerating transformation and effective support in five areas”, namely: education, training, art, justice and leadership. This must be why ‘Betsy’ was such a perfect fit for the board of the Foundation for Excellence in Education , a think-tank established by Jeb Bush, who announced his desire to “build an American education system that will help every child realize their God-given potential.” In 2015, the foundation’s charitable contributions amounted to $ 11.6 million. This is one of many profound contributions made by the appointed Secretary Of Education. All together, Dick and Betsy donated a reported $ 139 million during the Devos Foundation’s activities, placing the couple as #24 in the The ‘Forbes’ list of ‘Best American Donors of 2015’.
