Have You Heard About Shervin Pishevar’s Tweet Storm Yet?

Posted on by

Twitter is a unique social media platform. Unlike Facebook, the world’s most popular social media network, Twitter is more community-oriented than the former platform, exposing people to more once-unknown users’ tweets than most other digital networking sites – not just Facebook.

Countless times each and every day, Twitter users publish numerous tweets in short periods of time. In World Wide Web-friendly jargon, such a phenomenon is known as a “tweetstorm.”

While most people that use Twitter aren’t well-known or appeal to wide audiences – nor do they often publish such aforementioned tweetstorms – some Twitter users fit both categories. Shervin Pishevar is a widely-known investor, at least by standards of the investment world, who published a 50-tweet tweetstorm back in February.

Through the tweetstorm has long past its peak of popularity, the contents of Mr. Pishevar’s tens-of-tweets, 280-character rampage is nothing short of being intriguing, well thought-out, and full of predictions that have ultimately turned out to be true.

Here are some of the most notable, accurate, entertaining, and thought-provoking tweets belonging to Shervin Pishevar’s tweetstorm. Go check it out yourself if you’d like to see more – it’s unarguably worth a click.

Shervin Pishevar’s first tweet wasn’t entirely accurate…

… but it was pretty close – at least in principle. According to the first tweet, sent at 8:19 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on February 5, 2018, “I expect 6000 point drop in aggregate in months ahead.” As Shervin Pishevar would indicate in following tweets, that 6,000 point drop is in terms of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, a highly-regarded, industry-standard index used to gauge the overall performance of both the world of corporate finance and the United States economy, among other solid, tried-and-true uses.

In 2018, the Dow Jones dropped, from its highest yearly value to its lowest, roughly 2,600 points. Although only half of his 6,000-point prediction, the year still has six months left.

Bonds might not be as promising as some thing

The all-star venture capitalist tweeted that the “Bond market is not as deep a well [as] we think” soon after his first tweet. That tweet – fifth in the series – has so far proven to be true.

Adam Milstein the Revered Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

Posted on by

The name Adam Milstein is vastly appended to the real estate business and philanthropy. Born in Israel to very loving and supportive parents, he had a strong passion for serving his nation in many ways. Therefore, he joined the IDF for service at the Yom Kippur War. Of course, being an Israeli, he was not only serving his people but also learning about the origin of his roots. Around 1981, he moved to the United States of America with his wife, Gila Milstein and two daughters.

Background Data

Being a visionary, Milstein did not just roam around in the United States of America. On the contrary, he joined school and delved into a course in business administration at the University of Southern Carolina. At the same time, he pursued a course in economics and business. Therefore, Adam Milstein was ripe to join like-minded individuals in job hunting and the likes. However, because he was smart and understood the real estate business alongside the various allocations of resources in different markets, Milstein joined Hager Properties where he started working as a sales agent. Of course, this was an entry job and he had the opportunity to elevate his career in many ways.

Real Estate Business

Being a private investment firm, Hager Properties manages various industrial as well as commercial properties in Southern Carolina. Also, it is involved in re-positioning real estate. With Adam Milstein in charge, he oversees financing, accounting in addition to positioning. After serving in the company for a few months, Milstein became a partner in the company.

Philanthropy

Away from real estate and Adam Milstein’s contribution in the business, it is critical to highlight his input in philanthropy. For starters he was inspired to participate in a Jewish project called “maaser rishon,” from one of his colleague’s charitable actions. From that moment onwards, he became a huge contributor to the Jewish lifestyle. Later into the years of participating in this project, Milstein started a family foundation called the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation.

Overview

From the family foundation, Milstein concentrated his efforts in the development of various Jewish organizations with the aim of strengthening the Israeli-American ties. Aside from that, he has been an author on Jerusalem post and he strives to use this channel to disseminate critical information regarding the values of Israelis and their passion when it comes to upholding their roots.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi: Why Current Recovery Is A Just A Chicken Fight

Posted on by

     Fiscal budgetary deficits, high taxes, and manipulative business regulation threaten to tank the already bruised Brazilian economy. The country has for the past few years seen a consistent decline in performance of the national economy with the government doing little to help. It is however quick to publicize minimal improvements that such industry titans as Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi can only refer to as chicken flight. Carlos goes further to explain this short-lived boom arguing while warning businesses not to get too complacent but brace for harder times.

 

Cyclical economy

Speaking during a recent World Economic Forum session held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi supported the chicken flight claims by arguing that the country had adopted a cyclical economic trend. This means that it isn’t growing but rather experiences short-lived episodes of market recovery that are closely followed by recession. He compared the current economic recovery being experienced by different industries in Brazil to the 2016 boom that precedent a severe halt in the financial period leading to 2017.

Therefore, instead of getting comfortable with the boom, Luiz Carlos Trabuco is of the opinion that businesses should brace for tough times ahead. He would nonetheless mention that the country can still escape this tedious cycle and revamp their economy by implementing a series of legislative reforms. Such would include policies that seal holes within the public accounts departments as well as others that set a ceiling to government spending.

 

Cushioning majority citizens

According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, the economic turmoil experienced in the country has also exposed the inequalities between the majority of the citizens and the elites. For instance, some individuals receive pensions 15 times the maximum allowable in the private sector. The long-term banking industry player would point to this as one of the causes of the ever-burgeoning public sector budget. He would go on to point at this as the primary reasons he is backing the calls for the pension reforms that would harmonize pension payments within the public sector.

 

About Luiz Trabuco Cappi

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has carved himself a niche in the Brazilian Banking and investment industry where he is considered one of the most followed opinion shapers. The fete is well deserved considering it was acquired after years of hard work in the industry and climbing the ladder to head one of the country’s biggest bank, Banco Bradesco S.A. Here, Luiz Carlos serves as its chairman to the board, a position he assumed in 2017 as well as Chief Executive Officer, a position he has occupied since 2009.

Gorillaz To Release New Album At The End Of June

Posted on by

It’s been made official. Gorillaz will release their follow-up to last year’s Humanz, titled The Now Now, on June 29th.

 

The English virtual band is the brainchild of musician and Blur frontman Damon Albarn, as well as the comic book artist behind Tank Girl, Jamie Hewlett. The release of the band’s sixth studio album was made official after Hewlett’s wife Emma de Caunes confirmed the album title and release date through a story on her Instagram account.

 

The new album was originally teased with the launch of a new website by the band, TheNowNow.tv. The site includes a short teaser video that features a silhouette of Gorillaz singer 2-D sitting with a guitar in hand.

 

The band followed the website up with cryptic posters that popped up at the All Points East Festival in London this past Memorial Day weekend. One of the posters included the phrase “No More Unicorns Anymore”, which also appeared on the t-shirt of Gorillaz drummer Russel in artwork that co-founder Jamie Hewlett shared on his own Instagram account.

 

The Now Now is set for release only a little over a year after the release of Gorillaz’s fifth studio album Humanz on April 28, 2017. Since then, the band has performed two new songs not featured on their fifth album during concerts on the Humanz Tour. “Ode To Idaho” was introduced late last year, while the song “Hollywood” made its official debut at a Gorillaz show in Chile back in March, where Damon Albarn announced it as a track off the new album coming soon.

 

Considering that Humanz didn’t see a release until after a seven-year hiatus following 2010’s Plastic Beach, Gorillaz fans can rejoice in the fact that they’re in for a significantly shorter wait for the band’s next project.

Juggernaut Was Hidden From Audiences Until After Deadpool 2 Release

Posted on by

In a world of easily available information, studios have found a way to hide certain bits and pieces of information from audiences. Among the studios that have managed to hide information from audiences is Marvel with Infinity War. Fox has also managed to hide a crucial plot element in Deadpool 2 which is Juggernaut. Until the release of the film, people did not know for certain that the Juggernaut was going to be in the film. While some people may have speculated, there has not even been an image of the massive character released online. Therefore, his appearance might’ve been a welcome surprise.

 

Not only did Deadpool 2 satisfy audiences with the inclusion of Juggernaut, but it has also given them something fun to look at with the Juggernaut vs Colossus fight. The interesting thing about this movie was that there was a similar campaign to avoid spoiling the film. Ryan Reynolds was a large part of the campaign. Interestingly enough, he did spoil the ending of the film and yet at the same time, didn’t. He used his Deadpool sense of humor to spoil it. Another interesting thing is that Deadpool, the character lets people know at the beginning of the film that he is going to die in the movie.

 

One thing that is certain is that studios are getting really good about hiding important pieces of information from the audience so that they will be able to enjoy the film and have the intended experience. They are taking extensive approaches to avoid spoiling the film. This includes fake scripts. This is nothing new. For one thing, The Empire Strikes Back used fake lines in order to avoid giving away a major reveal.

Exercise And Teen Mental Health

Posted on by

It is important for parents to encourage their children to exercise on a regular basis. Hiking, playing a sport, dancing and doing yoga are some of the ways that teens can exercise. Physical activity can benefit a teen’s mental health.

In fact, some studies suggest that exercise can be just as effective as antidepressants. Studies have also shown that people who are inactive are more likely to develop mental health conditions. Exercise can improve health by boosting serotonin. This is a chemical that regulates mood.

Exercise can also lower cortisol levels. Additionally, exercise helps teens sleep better. There was a study done in Canada that was published in the “Journal of Adolescent Health”. The study analyzed the activity levels of middle school and high school students. The study showed that teens who played sports were less likely to develop depression. They also did better in the classroom.

Keep in mind that a teen does not have to play a sport to benefit. They can improve their mental health by doing any type of exercise. There was another study done by the Univerity of Newcastle in Australia. It involved teens who suffered from major depressive disorder.

The teens exercised regularly for 12 weeks. The results of the study showed that 10 out of 12 of the subjects were no longer depressed by the time the study ended. There have also been studies done to suggest that vigorous exercise can decrease the risk of depression by 25 percent.

James S. Gordon is the author of a book entitled “Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of Depression.” He stated that exercising is one of the best ways to overcome depression.
