Houston-based oil and gas company Talos Energy was founded in 2012 by Timothy Duncan. The company develops the production of oil and natural gas through exploration of properties up and down the Gulf of Mexico. Duncan founded the company using a $600 million dollar equity raise from Apollo Global Management. In 2013 Talos bought Energy and Resource Technology GOM Inc., a subsidiary of Houston-based Helix Group, for a sum total of $620 million. Now it is acquiring Stone Energy Corp. Stone Energy is a gas and oil producer from Louisiana. It filed for bankruptcy back in 2017, and now it will merge with Talos under their name, and Duncan will become CEO for both companies. The merger is further proof that Timothy Duncan wants it all.
The Stone Energy acquisition is another step in Talos Inc.’s plan to become premier company for gas and oil exploration offshore. In a statement provided by Duncan, the CEO reaffirmed his company’s mission, and expressed that Stone’s acquisition would speed the up development. In 2015, Talos won a bid for shallow exploration in Mexico. The bid struck pay dirt when it wrought 1.4 to 2 billion barrels of oil. Now with the purchase of IRT, and the merger with Stone, Talos is set to fully realize its goal. The discovery was made at the Zama-1 well in Mexico.
The completion of the merger will leave Talos stakeholders with 63 percent of the company, and Stone shareholders will retain the residual 37 percent. Initially the equity for market capitalization if figured at around $1.9 billion, with the stock price eleveating to $35.49. The newly formed combo company will begin trading at the New York Stock Exchange using the moniker TALO. The sale of Talos stock will also take the company public. Duncan is sure that the unified talent of both companies will grant the ability to pursue major exploration ventures. With their gain of shallow exploration in Mexico, the company is primed to become the name in offshore oil and gas production. The merger is expected to fully complete sometime next year, possibly within the first quarter, or early in the second.

After taking a bit of a break from releasing new albums and singles The Chainsmokers released a new song on January 17, 2018, called “Sick Boy”. This song represents a change of pace for this dance duo as it is quite a bit darker than the music which preceded it. It has been described as a feisty dance song and it quickly found success. It is a song that is about how people often have an identity crisis nowadays between who they really are what they present on social media.
When asked about this new song, Alex Pall said that the song is narcissism and trying to get attention online. He says this is by and large a self-inflicted wound to have a big social media presence but on the other hand it’s how people communicate nowadays so it is a pretty necessary thing. Both Alex Pall and Drew Taggart wrote this song along with two other people. The first was their keyboard player, Tony Ann, and the other person was Emily Warren who has written many songs over the course of her career.
In addition to being heard on the radio and streaming services, “Sick Boy” also has a music video out which is available on YouTube. The video starts out with flares of fire piercing through a dimly lit environment. The video also features creature textures which have been placed on the duo that make up The Chainsmokers as they journey through a haunted house. The video doesn’t hit you over the head with what the song is about, though, and the lyrics are not overwhelmed by the visual imagery. The video has amassed over 136 million views.
Following up on “Sick Boy” pretty quickly, The Chainsmokers released “You Owe Me” in February. This song hit number four on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. In its first month the accompanying video to this song had 34 million views. The song they released in March is a single called “Everybody Hates Me”. They didn’t release a video for this song but the audio-only YouTube video hit nine million views in its first month of being online.

After spending years working in the financial field, Randal Nardone realized that he was in a position wherein he could lead a company and at the same time help its growth and development. His experience and knowledge in the field was something that could aid him in this endeavor, and could potentially prove to be useful for Nardone. Currently, the financialist stands as the CEO of Fortress Investment Group, a company that offers a range of investment and asset management services to people all over the country. Through Fortress Investment Group, Nardone has been able to aid corporates who are looking for ways to improve their business and secure a better financial future for themselves.One of the things that Nardone likes staying true to are the high standards that he sets for the company. Nardone believes that for the company to truly grow, it needs to stay above the rest in terms of the services they provide and also the clients that they serve. For this purpose, Nardone takes a great amount of care to ensure that everything within the company is working as intended and to take care of anything that might come in the way of its workings.
Through the course of his career, Nardone has worked with a vast number of clients coming from a variety of different sectors and industries. The work that he has done with these clients has helped shape up the knowledge that he possesses and the manner in which he works. This has given him an edge over others in the field and enables him to perform better at the workplace, thereby contributing to more development at Fortress Financial Group.Before starting up Fortress Investment Group, Nardone held a few notable positions within a number of financial companies. The last post that he held before he started Fortress Investment Group was that of the Managing Director of UBS, a company that also specializes in financial services. He had been serving in this position for over three years before he decided that it was time for him to partake on his ventures, which is what led him to decide to start Fortress Investment Group.
Since first starting up the company, Fortress Investment Group has seen an incredible amount of developments. One of the more prominent events that Nardone had helped execute was with regards to the company’s presence on the stock market. Before the move, no investment company was made public on the stock market, but Nardone and the rest of the board at the company saw this as a move that could potentially pay off incredibly well. After much deliberation, Fortress Investment Group went public on the NYSE in 2007, and become the first company of its kind to do so.There is no doubt that Nardone has shaped the company into the name that it is today. This skill and expertise in the financial field have significantly improved the workings of the company, thereby aiding all the clients who come to them.
The American economy was built on capitalism; the concept of free trade and the literal ability to have unlimited earning potential, assuming you are intelligent with how you conduct business and how you invest your funds. In the earlier years, during the Industrial Revolution, corporations took care of their employees throughout their lifetimes, even after they retired from the company in question and no longer put in any man hours. The pension fund was created for this purpose, to show an employee that the company you worked for was loyal to you as long as you remained loyal to them. It was proof of a symbiotic relationship. Unfortunately, in the modern day world, such value on employees no longer seems to exist. Pension funds have gone extinct like the dinosaurs, and all that is left in its wake is the ability invest hopeful retirement funds into 401k, 403b, and IRA investment accounts. A man is trying to remedy this. His name is Matt Badiali and his idea for the future of investment are known as freedom checks. Read more at Agora News about Freedom Checks.
Freedom checks operate under Statute 26-F, which distinctly notes that investment options, under certain requirements, are not taxed. As long as a company receives 90% of their total income from oil or gasoline sales they are capable of implementing and issuing freedom checks to their shareholders. What this means is that companies who adopt this form of investment are not taxed on issuing them, which is a huge deal, especially for smaller companies in the industry who want to disperse that additional money to other areas of operation. Freedom checks are sent out to shareholders in much the same way as social security checks and can be placed into any number of traditional investment accounts, completely tax free and without worry of spending any of your hard earned money to build on.
With such an unsure future, especially for retirement options, shareholders need to invest in what makes the most sense. Taxes can easily damage and diminish an investment account, especially if a shareholder needs to quickly draw funds in a time of emergency. Freedom checks seek to remove these common issues, allowing those who use them to see a brighter and more secure future for their money. It is an ingenious concept and one that Matt Badiali places his reputation on and one that should not be ignored in the future world. Read this article at metropolismag.com.

In recent years there has been some controversy whether canvassing is still the best way to affect voters during an election with the growing use of social media being used to gain leverage in affecting voters online.
A recent study by UC Berkely professors Broockman and Kalla showed the impact of canvassing campaigns are negligible. Not useless, but only about 1 in every 800 voters, if canvassed within two months before an election, are affected by canvassing techniques, showed Brookman and Kalla.
