Alex Pall was ready to answer any and all questions about him, The Chainsmokers, and their new track Closer. He reveals that he met Andrew Taggart through their current manager. He had already been working with the manager to help boost his DJing hobby in New York City. The manager introduced the two because he thought that they would work well together, and they both had the same kind of goals. After meeting, the two immediately started working.
Taggart moved from Maine to the city, and Alex Pall quit his job. They committed to spending all day grinding out music, and working together. This was four years ago, and now they are famous, award winning musicians. Right from when they started working together, they knew it would work out. They both had similar taste and brought different things to the table. Once they talked about their ambitions, and realized they both had the drive to achieve, and both really badly wanted to make it work, they knew that they were going to work great together.
They got together every day from 9AM to 7PM and just made music together, while also working on creating a great artistic identity to play off of. The most unique part of their sound though, comes with their newest track. For being a DJ duo in the electronic genre, it is unusual to hear the actual artist singing on their track, and yet that is exactly what Taggart did on Closer.
Pall also spoke about the audience they play towards and the people that connect with their music. Thanks to the internet age, and apps like Instagram, it’s very clear what kind of people love The Chainsmokers’ music. Their music is generally listened to by 16 to 25 year olds, but it does transcend ages, countries, genders, and cultures. There are people in the Philippines listening to them, and six year olds singing their music. For Pall, it is really just exciting to find that so many other people enjoy the music, and find an emotional connection to it, because that’s why they create it.
Jason hope is one of the most prominent futurists in the United States of America. He is well known for picking technological trends that have experienced success in the markets before their widespread implementation. He has recently given some predictions on technological trends for the year 2018.He is most interested in the growing network of interconnected devices and people known as the Internet of things. It is projected that over $770 billion will be spent on the Internet of things this year alone. As the network continues to grow not only in size but in influence as well security will become more of a concern. In fact, just last year the demand for security solutions in the IT world grew by over 100%.
Jason believes that to meet this new demand for security solutions one technology will reign supreme. Blockchain technology is most popularly used in cryptocurrencies; however, this is not the only use for the technology. At its core blockchain technology is simply a distributed decentralized immutable ledger system. It keeps a publicly accessible record of all transactions, but it is not stored in a central location which minimizes the security risks. The blockchain technology uses cryptographic processes to create a decentralized control system. This allows incredibly strong protection against data tampering and interference.As people are growing more accustomed to using Siri on their phones artificial intelligence will continue to play a larger and larger role in the world. Artificial intelligence allows the creation of innovative and intuitive programs.
The Internet of things harvests a vast amount of information and using artificial intelligence this information can be analyzed in real time that can allow for simplified decision-making processes in large companies. Together with blockchain technologies in cloud computing, these will revolutionize the infrastructure of technology companies. It will create a reliable and secure communication channel between devices and people on the network.New models of business will be developed as the Internet of things merges with other technologies. For example, in a factory, a machine may be able to detect an issue before it becomes a costly mistake. This will improve a company’s operational efficiency and can help them with their bottom line. The Internet of things continues to grow and companies will be able to implement large-scale changes much faster rather than incremental improvements over a long period of time because of it. The combined power of blockchain technology, AI, and cloud computing is going to give entrepreneurs a leg up in innovation.

According to Jason, IoT is likely to be the prevalent investment that several worlds’ largest companies will venture. He says that as the world major players in universal economy begin to cuddle the technology of IoT, it will become extra vital for other cooperations to catch up with their rate of knots. He further predicts the adoption of advanced technology by major world economy players will fuel the world in which nearly all possible devices can connect with each other.
Jason Hope with other futurist entrepreneurs is confident that the 5G technology will usher in a new age of rapid communication, better health and happiness.

A recent article in a popular online communications industry publication talked about Coriant’s hiring of Shaygan Kheradpir as their new CEO and its potential impact on the company (http://www.lightreading.com/optical/packet-optical/kheradpirs-coriant-comeback/a/d-id/718548). Kheradpir is an experienced executive that has lent his considerable talents to a wide range of major internationally known companies. And at each stop along the way he has improved the technical abilities and the income for each of those companies. Odds are he will do the same for Coriant.
Born in London, England and educated in Switzerland, Iran and the United States, Shaygan Kheradpir brings an international perspective, technical genius and unique experience to every position he takes. He is also known as a technology executive that gets the job done well and quickly. After graduating from Cornell University with a Masters and a PhD in electrical engineering, Kheradpir has spent the past 3 decades creating effective systems, staffing solutions and solving technical problems for network operators in more than 100 countries. His work has helped every company with which he has been involved to thrive.
Kheradpir, Corianr current Chairman of the Board and CEO, began his career with GTE. He radically improved their network routing, control and management systems and was promoted to Chief Information Officer. When in 2000 GTE and Bell Atlantic merged to form Verizon Inc., Kheradpir was initially put in charge of the new company’s e-business division. However, after improving the automation and diversification of their telecommunications systems, he became Verizon’s first Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer. Kheradpir then became COO, CTO and an Executive Committee member at Barclays and helped them create their Pingit mobile payment software.
Since leaving Barclays Kheradpir has been CEO of Juniper Networks and created an Integrated Operating Plan that cost costs by $150 million and returned over $3 billion to the shareholders. He then became operating partner at Marlin Equity Partners, the private equity firm which created Coriant in 2013. Kheradpir was quickly made Coriant’s chairman of the board and CEO. While making his mark as a business and technology executive in the financial services, technology, and telecommunications industries, Kheradpir also registered numerous patents and was on the U.S. National Institute of Standards & Technology advisory board.
Shaygan Kheradpir is now charged with using his strategic insight and operational execution experience to take Coriant to the top of its highly competitive market against companies like Alcatel-Lucent and Cisco
One useful insight into how children learn has recently been brought to our attention by Carol Dweck, the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University.
Dr. Dweck’s research, resulting in what is referred to as growth mindset, proved conclusively that children welcome a challenge to learn when they come to understand that their brains are flexible and can grow and develop.
Growth mindset de-emphasizes the more traditional confidence-building praise for being smart and focuses more on encouragement for making a good effort, developing good strategies and continuing to show improvement.
Of equal importance is that this insight can be an exemplary learning aid for teachers trying to build student confidence and laying a foundation for creating a positive culture with classrooms and schools.
Many teachers, with the help of the latest technology and the Stanford Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS), might be finding solutions to difficulties they are having in bringing this encouragement home to their students.
The possible solution is a series of animated videos developed by the ed-tech company, ClassDojo, a communication platform that unites teachers, parents and students in a shared environment of connection and empowerment. The students learn and the parents learn how and what their children are learning, while the teacher shares text, photos and videos throughout the process.
Noting that most ed-tech companies focused on creating test platforms, grade books or a digital-based curricula, ClassDojo was founded by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary in 2011 with the hope of developing a simple app that could be instrumental in creating community among teachers, parents and students.
The ClassDojo videos(5 in all) feature cartoon characters that students are already familiar with and each video is 2-3 minutes in length. Titles include A Secret About The Brain, The Magic Of Mistakes, The Power Of “Yet”, The Mysterious World Of Neurons and Little By Little.
Both PERTS and ClassDojo are closely observing the interaction and feedback from these video presentations. Because ClassDojo can track user involvement with their tools, the researchers at PERTS will be able to see what effects the students might experience as well as the impact on teachers and parents and the classroom community as a whole.
There will be a lot of data to explore. ClassDojo reports that it is being used in more than half of U.S. schools and 180 countries.
