Chainsmokers consist of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall. In April 2018, at the Pop music Awards, Drew Taggart won the award for songwriter of the year from Ascap. During his speech, they give a shout out to a number of songwriters who also won the award. Drew Taggart’s focus to write the next hit always puts him a panic mode, “he says jokingly”. He acknowledged one of his songwriting partners Emily Warren. Emily Warren helped in writing numerous Chainsmokers songs.
The Chainsmokers became the first dance artist/ DJ group to top the Billboard top 100’s list. By March 2018, their video for the single “ Sick Boy” had reached over 100 million views. They will perform at the Pepsi Generations Summer Campaign in Los Angeles, July 24th. To create an epic performance they will seek to blend their Edm-style, and perform some of the greatest artist songs ever. This list is said to include Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, and Beyonce.
They admit they are nervous about performing songs done by some of the greatest artists ever and they consider it a challenge. They will also perform many of their own hit songs that their fans have grown to love. Songs they will perform from their hit catalog include “ Roses”, Don’t Let Me Down”, and Closer”.
They will perform “Thriller”, by Michael Jackson. They perform the song every year at Halloween so that should not be an issue.
In 2014, their single “Selfie” went top 20 in several countries. The Chainsmokers single “Roses” off their debut album Bouquet, released in 2015 hit the US Billboards 100. THe won a Grammy Award, at the 59th Grammys for another single “Don’t Let Me Down” also off that 2015 album Bouquet. Their other achievements include two American Music Awards and five IHeartRadio Music Awards.
The duo was formed after another member DJ Rhett Bixler left the group consisting of Alex Pall and himself. Around the time Drew Taggart met Alex Pall, he was interning at Interscope Records. Taggart was informed there was a spot open to joining the group by someone who knew the manager of Alex Paul. Taggart then left Maine and went to New York City to team up with Alex Paul; the rest is history. Asked about how the groups’ name came about during an interview on ABC’S Nightline, Paul said:“ he enjoyed smoking weed and so the choice was open”.
The fight against cancer has been waging for years and years. Throughout this defiant time of conflict, many people have lost their lives while others have been spared. Cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases known to man and catching it in its early stages is crucial. Have you ever heard of a man named Clay Siegall? The Clay Siegall of this article is one of the most prominent persons in cancer research. He’s a doctor, a scientist and a futurist to some degree. His strong passion for eradicating cancer can’t be questioned, and he has dealt with this disease on a first-hand basis.
Dr. Clay Siegall calls the shots at one of the world’s most advanced-research facilities. This facility is known as Seattle Genetics, and it stands at the forefront of the industry. This man is an old-guard of cancer research, and he has been in the game for over 30 years. Siegall has worked with many of the biggest names in the business, including Bristol Myers Squibb, the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Health. Seattle Genetics is a biotech-oncology organization in the Pacific Northwest. There are close to 1,000 employees here, and the organization specializes in developing and commercializing targeted-cancer therapies. These types of therapies are very advanced in nature because they specifically seek-out cancer cells in the body. Once the treatment identifies the cancer cells, it will then attach itself to the cancer cells and provide cell-killing agents.
Rigorous research, drug development and scientific innovation are three of Siegall’s core-principles, and he definitely uses them to the fullest. It would be extremely hard trying to find a more progressive approach to fighting cancer in the 21st century.

Betsy DeVos is the current Secretary of Education under the reign of Pres. Donald Trump, but she is so much more than that. She is an exceptional political figure, and impeccable businessperson, and a reliable role model for women all over the country who are interested in furthering their own causes. She started out like many people do, at the bottom. It is true that she is the heir to a vast fortune, but she thought that her time would be best served to help to change the policies in the United States when it comes to education. She quickly established herself as a notable figure in her home state of Michigan, earning a seat on their board of education. While they are she pushed for implementation of school choice programs and scholarship initiatives that would ensure that children of lower income could take advantage of those programs.
As she continued her career, she served as Chairwoman of the Republican party for Michigan which is where her love of education and politics begin to overlap. In this role, she started making her public aware of the fact that she believed that school choice would be the future of America. She knew that students all over the country were suffering through a subpar education, she had seen it when working with the Department of Education for Michigan. Many schools were caught in a vicious cycle where teachers would leave, students would fail, and funding would fall. This would repeat constantly until schools were essentially babysitters for children while their parents were at work. This flies against the entire reason why children are sent to school, to begin with.
Now that the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos is touring the country to visit charter schools too are showing promise. She recently visited a charter school in Florida with pop star Pitbull to speak at SLAM!. This charter school system is located in Miami Florida and caters exclusively to girls. It has become a very important steppingstone for girls that seek to occupy leadership roles and other lucrative positions in their future. It has drawn the interest of many notable political figures such as the first lady of the United States Melania Trump and even Queen Rania of Jordan. This charter school system is actually one that has been started by artist Pitbull as an attempt to bring a better school system to these children.
While in Florida she also visited many other charter schools to get a read on how they are positively affecting the populations that they serve. She found that many of them have garnered a large degree of success and she hopes that they continue to do so in the future. She is also seen increased success in Louisiana, Indiana, Illinois, and many other states who are deciding to follow suit. It is her hope that in the future these schools will become commonplace and a viable solution to the problems that are growing within the public school sector. Where your child goes to school is your choice.
