Tidal has went through quite a lot lately. They have successfully completed a few huge album exclusives in a row from their co owner Rihanna, T.I, Beyonce, and Kanye West. The Tidal rose to a very high point, actually being the highest point ever in the Itunes store which was following Kanye West’s TLOP drop and his exclusive. It is still in progress. It has been reported that a million trial members have been added since February 22nd.
However, after the defection of quite a few executives, (Tidal has it’s 3rd CEO, which is the former SoundCloud Chief Business executive officer Jeff Toig who joined in late 2015),it is questionable of who exactly is orchestrating these five-start executive artist plays. There have been sources that are behind the scene saying that it is a lady named Desiree Perez. Jay Z and her are close associates and they have been for a very long time. She runs SC Enterprises along with her husband, Juan Perez.
Desiree Perez is apparently is a very fierce and touch negotiator and a numbers cruncher. It was also said that she has a history and a street rep that even Empire’s Cookie wouldn’t dare try to challenge. The N.Y. Daily News calls her “Babe Ruthless”. Desiree Perez is known for being a boss. Desire Perez negotiated Beyonce’s Formation stadium tour and she also had a strong hand in Rihanna’s samsung deal.
The Hova Circle of Influence is made up of Desiree Perez, Jay Z, Chaka Pilgrim, Jana Fleischman, and Jay Brown. They are big bosses running Roc Nation, and many other parts of management, labeling, publishing, and even the operation of Tidal itself. So basically, Perez and her crew run the entire operation.
This streaming service has been building its own lane and is geared towards the young consumers. They have to make an impression when it comes to other other rivals like Spotify and Apple Music. Tidal is focused on what is next and what’s new instead of a catalog which will end up costing more.
However, Tidal will cost more than it’s competition. It is based on two subscription tiers. It will not be free but it does offer a free two week trial to test it out. However, it seems pretty affordable at just $9.99 a month. When listeners get the premium tier, they will have access to high definition music videos.

California’s drought, a topic that has been in the public eye for a while now, was deemed a State of Emergency in January of 2015. Lack of precipitation in the region has caused massive water loss for many inhabitants, including ski resorts residing in the northern part of the state that thrives off of the winter snowfall.
I was able to tune into KCRW where Madeline Brand was fortunate enough to interview the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, Andy Wirth. Madeline mentions how many resorts are debating changing their business models, having prematurely ended skiing seasons due to the issue. Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://www.kcrw.com/people/andy-wirth
She goes on to say that experts predict, if the drought persists, within 20-years there will be no skiing in California. Andy quells her concern for his resort, assuring our hostess that the resort has taken every precaution to keep business booming. Andy does agree that the lack of snow has staggard business to the resort, but only slightly.
He states that out of the 6000 acres of mountain, 4000 acres is still operational; that’s plenty to keep the lift doors open. Subsequently, he says that the resort is acclimating to the challenge, not only by creating more snow but also hedging both summer and winter months. With this approach, the resort can take advantage of events that take place during the summer, including weddings, meetings, and the IronMan triathlon of which Andy Wirth is a huge supporter.
During a skydiving run, Andy Wirth was unfortunate enough to land in a vineyard, causing him to completely sever his right arm. During his recovery, he unexpectedly befriended a group of navy seals that happened to be training in Squaw Valley. For Andy, that incident was a blessing in disguise as he states,”quite a few of them have become good friends and their spirit, counsel and narrative has truly been an important part of my recovery.”
Andy Wirth has shown time and time again, from working his way up to CEO of the resort to his tragic accident, that he is extremely resourceful in what some made deem a “dire situation. He harnesses this tanasity with his ability to pull through situations stronger than ever assuring us that December and January are quite favorable for his resorts, dispite the lack of snowfall.
For a little over a century, Venezuela has been exporting its oil. Since 1914, this oil has been a large component of the government’s economy. Although it is still the country with the most untouched oil in the world, Venezuela is in a terrible economic situation at this present time. In a recent article, oil is blamed for the state of the country. Part of the crisis is due to the low prices on oil barrels exported from Venezuela. Because they are earning less for the oil, which is the chief export, the government does not have enough money to buy necessary materials to import for their people. This has caused scarcities for food, toiletries, energy and even work, reveals insider David Osio.
Poor care of oil fields, which are some of the world’s oldest, has also caused other damage to Venezuela’s ecosystem. The production areas were not maintained properly, and many are all but abandoned at this time. The waters are plagued with oil, which leaked from ruptured pipes used for oil extraction, and this has affected the fishing. According to El Venezolano, local fishermen catch more oil than fish in their nets in Venezuelan waters, which has caused much hardship as they can not provide for their families either.

Founder and CEO of Forefront Capital, Brad Reifler, saw a need in the world of investments, and he filled it. Although, he himself is in the top one percent, he understands the investing needs of the ninety-nine percent, and is happy to share with them his understanding of the market. After retiring, Reifler’s father-in-law entrusted his life savings to Reifler which enabled Reifler to see firsthand the limited investment options that his father-in-law, and others like him, had. It was then that Reifler realized that the ninety-nine percent needed opportunity, help, and guidance in order to participate in the market. And, what is Reifler’s advice to the ninety-nine percent?
Reifler recommends that an investor should not invest all of his or her money in the market. In addition, Reifler believes it is important for investors to get to know who the people are that they have allowed to invest their hard-earned money. Finally, a person should have investment goals, and he or she should keep track as to how their investments are meeting those goals.
However, even Reifler understands that the financial market is not always precise. He himself invested money in a college savings plan for his daughters and ended up losing on the deal. However, overall he has had an extremely successful financial career. He has a degree in Economics and Political Science from Bowdoin College. After graduating, he went on to focus on global derivatives and in 1982 founded Reifler Trading Corporation. Since that time, he has enjoyed continued success in the financial sector and helped in the creation of several more companies. Be sure to follow Brad on Twitter @BradleyR.

Painted pure white but composed of only two planks of wood stacked between two ladders, it makes for a visually interesting addition to the furniture.
