The Chainsmokers: Darker Direction Than Ever Before

May 14, 2018 • divinefuel

“From the east side of America, where we chose pride over character and we can pick sides but this is us”. – The Chainsmokers (Sick Boy)

These chilling lyrics accompanied by an ambient soundscape have come from none other than America’s favorite Electronic Duo, the Chain Smokers.

Formed by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, the Chainsmokers are based out of New York City and since 2015 have produced multiple hit records accumulating billions of views on youtube. Although new to the scene the group has achieved decorated success winning a grammy, a mtv music award, multiple billboard awards as well as multiple #1 singles.

The Chainsmoker’s music has once been described by founding member Andrew Taggart as “blurring the lines between indie, pop music, dance music, and hip-hop.” but I would suggest that anybody interested in getting an accurate representation of what this group sounds like just listen for themselves. Over the past two to three years the group has covered extensive ground proving themselves to be genuine creatives and pushing music as a whole forward.

The Chainsmokers have reportedly decided to go in a darker direction moving forward as can be heard in their new song “Sick Boy” which discusses the current state of American society and the disconnect of its citizens. Although this group in particular is not known for being political, the song deals with the large divide that the political landscape in America has created and also addresses the labels people give others who they disagree with (such as “sick”).

After the release of their single “Sick Boy” which is the first track released from their newest, EP which shares the same name, many were starting to assume that when the group said it is going in a “darker” direction they meant “more socially conscious” but since the Ep has been out since the end of April 2018 it’s probably best to just let the music speak for itself, have a listen.

The Medical Efforts of Paul Mampilly

May 13, 2018 • divinefuel

So I took a look at Paul Mampilly and here is my two cents with regard to “the Greatest Medical Breakthrough in History.” At first glance, it certainly appears to be a bait and switch kind of a deal. Not unlike a used snake oil sales pitch to get folks to buy into a world-shaking epiphany that would change the over arching health of human kind immediately. That is not what Paul Mampilly is about, and once I read on a little further it is apparent that there are a lot of good things that are being accomplished due to Paul Mampilly’s efforts. Learn more about Paul on Inspirery.com.


The Premise Of What Paul Mampilly is about

The notion is precision medicine, that by looking closely at a persons DNA the blueprint if you will can provide answers in developing the causes and thus the prevention of sicknesses and diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Arthritis, heart disease all to name just a few could potentially be wiped out by studying DNA. The place discussed was someplace called the midwestern hilltop located in Utah, called Myriad Genetics. This institution is where they carry out their practice of personalized medicine and diagnostics. They make their money by selling and processing tests that overwhelmingly check for cancer risks. The proof is in the pudding apparently for Paul Mampillys efforts have reaped increased value as stocks have increased dramatically since Myriads inception. The financial numbers speak to the worthiness of Paul Mampillys idea that potentially there is merit in his argument that the market for precision medicine will grow exponentially. It is noteworthy to mention that cancer testing once comprised 100 percent of the workload, now it is one-third of that number. To me, that is telling that Paul Mampilly is focusing on a much broader spectrum which will benefit a much larger percentage of illnesses worthy of defeating in our lifetimes. Even though Myriad was not the first time precision medicine was introduced by Paul, the first mention being FMI (Foundation Medicine) has also faired well. While FMI is less established it has done very well with a market cap of 1.5 billion. I will not get hung up on the financial numbers, my focus is strictly remaining on the accomplishments Paul Mampilly has achieved to date. Read more about Paul Mampilly at Talk Markets.

.A Great Work In Progress

It certainly appears to me that Paul Mampilly is on the right track. From reviewing the financial numbers alone he is making good progress. I for one pray that Paul continues to make positive traction with his precision medicine practices toward the overall increased health of humankind.
