Alaska Legalizes Marijuana

February 25th, 2015 by admin

Alaska legalizes marijuana for recreational use. Another step in the right direction for pro-marijuana advocates. How long until marijuana is completely legal in the entire country? It seems that most people want marijuana to be legal.

America is the home of the free. The senators and representatives of the country strive to give the American people what they want. The Americans are speaking. Marijuana is considered as the least dangerous drug in the world. Statistics show that marijuana has never killed a single person in the history of its existence.

Alcohol, which is legal, causes thousands of deaths each year. It does not make sense that alcohol is legal while marijuana is not. Legalizing marijuana and taxing it would create major tax revenue. Why not legalize it and profit from it?

Paul Mathieson understands that if marijuana was legal country wide, there would be no reason to sell it illegally. Drug dealers would lose a lot of money, and people would be safer across the country. Marijuana is decriminalized in most states anyways. Don’t get me wrong, marijuana is not for everyone. Like alcohol, marijuana should only be sold to people 21 and older.

Since the creation of the internet, people have more of a voice now than ever. The majority of modern Americans want marijuana legalized. For more information on the legalization of marijuana, visit Buzzfeed.

He is playing for the fences, and he is seeing if he can put together a win now strategy that will get the team a Super Bowl.

They have already lost a Super Bowl with Peyton, but it is possible that they could get back considering how the AFC is put together. If they can win the AFC title game, Kubiak will have a plan that will win them the Super Bowl. This is a strategy that could bring them a title just before Peyton retires, and it will buy Kubiak time with the new team that he will have to put together after Peyton retires.

Father John Misty Covers “Heart-Shaped Box” and It Is Amazing

February 16th, 2015 by admin

Twenty-one years after the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, his legacy lives on as his work is re-imagined by some of the latest and greatest musical talents. Just in time for Valentine’s Day this past weekend, former Fleet Foxes drummer, Father John Misty, released an acoustic version of the In Utero classic “Heart-Shaped Box.”

Misty’s voice channels Cobain’s angst as it echoes alongside his guitar. The haunting melody is completely stripped down to bare bones, yet completely envelops you with its emotion, something Brian Torchin loved. People on said it’s almost better than the original, but we never had a chance to hear Cobain break it down like this. He would most likely be proud of this version.

Now we wait to see if Courtney Love, Cobain’s widow, decides to make a big deal out of the performance, as she did after Lana Del Rey covered it in concert in 2012.

In the meantime, we can listen to it over and over again on Soundcloud and bask in its wonderfulness.

Jonathan Veitch Has Become A True Leader in Education

January 28th, 2015 by admin

For years, Occidental College, located in Los Angeles, struggled with maintaining a strong student body and a strong connection with the local community. In fact, between 2005 and 2009, the school went through five different presidents. The job either released the individuals or they went on to seek employment somewhere else. This makes it difficult to have any sort of continuity with the staff and what is going on in the college, as it really needs a stable and strong minded individual in order to guide the school through to bigger and better things. That is exactly how Jonathan Veitch has improved the school and, since he came over from Harvard University after receiving his doctorate.

When Jonathan arrived at the school around 2009, it really was in a mess. Nobody looked favorably on the school in the community due it being seen as a party college, while students had dropped off and attendance was at one of the lowest levels it had been in for some time. Jonathan has managed to turn all of this around. First of all, regarding attendance, after it was released that Jonathan Veitch points out that President Obama spent two years at Occidental College, enrollment has drastically increased. It has actually grown every single year since he took over, and while the schools suffered setbacks during the downturn economy, Occidental has actually increased and added students, which gives the school not only more money through tuition to improve courses and services, but it also increases the amount of money the school is able to receive through the state government as well. Due to this, it is at a point of financial prosperity the school has not been in possible in the history of the school.

Now, beyond this, the local community did not have a favorable eye on the school before Jonathan took over as president. Many of the locals living in the community did not like the loud parties that would take place with some of the housing complexes that were located inside of the community and away from the school itself. Jonathan changed this by reducing the presence the school had on the exterior of campus, and in order to assist students who did want to live out of the school grounds, it improved public transportation. Along with different pledges made to the community, the relationship between the school and the community has never been better with them.

Rising Star Jared Haftel Offers His Analysis of the Road to Success

January 26th, 2015 by admin

The investment banking world has gained a new rising star. MBA student Jared Haftel has been landing top jobs and impressing employers ever since graduating college. He writes articles advising those who wish to follow in his footsteps.

Haftel spent five years at Duke University majoring in three different fields. He played an active role in his school, writing for the Chronicle. He began his internship at Credit Suisse, where he learned about his craft until 2008. Haftel left Duke with a Bachelor’s degree each in Science, Mathematics, and Economics a year later. The skills and knowledge he acquired landed him his first job at Merill Lynch, the corporate banking division of Bank of America.

Merill Lynch hired Jared Haftel as an analyst. He started in their Global Industries Group division, but he quickly rose through the ranks. Haftel handled high profile clients like CONSOLE Energy, Huntsman Corporation, and GeoEye. Most of his duties were involved in tracking the investment opportunities in the chemicals, mining, metals, defense industries, aerospace industries, and tracking commodities. The analysis provided by such a young employee surprised his superiors. Bank of America is one of the top banks in America, and Haftel established himself as one of their top players. When he left Merrill Lynch it was as a professional in his field, taking advantage of a great career opportunity.

Haftel began working for his current employer, Vector Capital, in 2011. Vector capital has been an authority in technology investments since 1997. Haftel has an insight into financial statistical data that Vector Capital has used to determine the securities and risks of the different investment opportunities proposed to them. He holds a prudent outlook on banking models that have saved them time and again.

Instead of keeping his success to himself, Haftel chooses to write articles and participate in interviews that provide valuable advice to others interested in joining the world of banking. Every great job begins with a resume; Haftel says that a resume should be 50% work experience. His article on the topic says that employers care most about a candidate’s actual experience versus what he learned in school. They want to see achievements and promotions, things that will show them they are getting a good employee. Resumes are processed quickly. One glance should brag about a candidate without exaggerating.

Following Haftel’s resume advice often leads to an interview, a pressure filled event that Haftel has been to and survived many times. He says that interviews are brutal. There are three things that can get anyone through them: research, appearance, and personality. Before

going, a candidate should look into the company she is applying to. That way she knows its expectations, stances on important issues, and what questions to ask. Knowing what a company wants means a candidate can fulfill that want. Appearance and personality determine whether an interviewer will appreciate a candidate on a personal level. A positive attitude and a professional look goes a long way.

An internship can make or break a person’s career. Haftel learned a lot while interning for Credit Suisse. The contacts he made there were paramount to securing him his first job, and the knowledge he gained are the rungs of the career ladder he is still climbing. Jared Haftel made sure he established himself as being valuable to the permanent team. He advices others to exhibit the same confidence if they want the same opportunities for success that he has utilized.
