The firm seeks to help people meet their financial goals, which can be an involved process. For those caught in the “sandwich generation,” HCR Wealth Advisors offers some guidance that could prove helpful.

The “sandwich generation” refers to those adults who are in the process of financially caring for both their elderly parents and also their own children. They are “sandwiched” between the economic concerns of both sets of dependents. Of course, the members of the “sandwich generation” must also look after their own financial situation as well. Otherwise, a fiscal tragedy could ensue.

So, don’t overlook the importance of putting money away for many years—or not-so-many years—down the road. Your children will reach college age someday. Will there be enough money to pay for their education? Answering such a question requires addressing those concerns now.

You must also take your own future into consideration. Someday, you will be retired just as your parents may be. Not saving enough money to cover your own golden years could also create a disastrous situation. You may be forced to work well into your 70’s. Life also may be exceptionally frugal when it lacks the funds to cover expenses.

That’s one reason why you should examine your parents’ expenditures. The Los Angeles-based HCR Wealth Advisors educates clients on investment strategies. The firm can help you address your own financial anxiety, check out @HCRwealth for more information.

A New Time for The Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, originally formed back in 2012. However, their breakthrough song wasn’t until 2015 with “Roses”, which hit the top 10 on the US Billboard’s Hot 100. After this The Chainsmokers released songs nearly every month with various collaborations with artist such as Daya, Halsey, and Coldplay. Releasing top charting songs for weeks and quickly The Chainsmokers became a renowned band with a significant fan base. The music style of The Chainsmokers has been, in the past years, up-to-date with the current styles being released. But after a nine month break The Chainsmokers have came back, January 2018, with a much deeper and darker side of music releasing “Sick Boy”.

In a recent interview Alex Pall and Drew Taggart explain this new darker side their lyrics and music. Stating that not only have they grown up as people, but as artists as well and they as a band know what they want to talk about lyrically through their music. Although, their music is still a reflection of today’s generation with lyrics like “how many likes is my life worth” referring to the idea of how this generation communicates using social media, such as twitter, Instagram, etc. “Sick Boy” is stated to be “one installment of this new chapter” to be released by The Chainsmokers and other unknown collaborations and producers.

The darkness of this new music has come from some anger in which social media can cause. For instance, people relating to you for someone you’re not or people degrading you for someone you’re not. There are both good and bad to social media and as stated by Taggart sometimes you just need to let it out. That is what they are doing for this chapter in their career as a successful band. They are not setting themselves up for failure by “knowing” this is going to be a hit album. They just want the fans to follow this new chapter and listen to how they feel not only as a band, but also how others or yourself might feel with this new darker side.

The Frontera Fund Continues the Fight against Injustice

Susan Bolton, a U.S District Judge, recently made a ruling that exonerated self-proclaimed “America’s Toughest Sheriff.” Arpaio, who was famously known as the worst sheriff in America made an infamous name for himself by perpetrating white supremacist agendas and racial and social discrimination against minority groups. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

He was acquitted after a presidential pardon from Donald Trump when he visited Phoenix. Arpaio was convicted in July 2017. He was a corrupt scoundrel who misappropriated over $100 million in jail funds. His intent harassment of Latinos led to a class action suit against him (Melendres vs. Arpaio) which resulted in his criminal conviction.

In addition to his vast composition of charges, Arpaio added a criminal contempt charge when he purposefully ignored a federal judge’s order. The order asked him to appear to answer for a lawsuit that was filed against him back in 2007. Judge Bolton’s ruling ended the decade-long hunt for Arpaio’s head on a plank.

Michael Lacey is a native of Newark, N.J. Mike went to the Arizona State University. Jim Larkin also attended the same university but was born and raised in Phoenix. Jim and Lacey were both dropouts at ASU when they met up and discovered their shared passion.

In 1972, the two pioneers partnered to startup, the Phoenix News Times. The newspaper was aimed at voicing the woes of campus students who at the time were staging anti-war protests Lacey became the Executive editor of the paper while Larkin managed to advertise.

They focused on socio-political issues that were facing students. They could voice out their opinions as investigative journalists. They earned a prestigious spot as investigative journalists. This was on the verge of the break of multiple papers around the United States.

Larkin and Lacey relentlessly covered and investigated matters regarding the Joe Arpaio case. They exposed unlawful aspects of how the department had conducted itself for the past two decades. Under Arpaio’s leadership, the Maricopa County’s Department committed acts of inhumane injustices, and they stumped on human rights laws.

They were arrested when they exercised their first amendment rights. They published a piece that exposed subpoenas against the writers, the editors and the readers of their paper. They were released within 24 hours as their charges failed to add up.

This caused an outburst of public outrage across the county. The two former owners of the Phoenix News Post sued the Sheriff’s department for the wrongful arrests. The two parties reached an agreement the department decided to pay a settlement fee of 3.75 million.

Larkin and Lacey used the proceeds from the hearing to establish the Frontera Fund. The organization is aimed at helping out the oppressed minority groups around Arizona including the Latin-American groups.

Lacey in a statement protested the fact that Arpaio gets to walk away scot-free as being unlawful. He says that Arpaio should be made to pay for his hate crimes.

Jeunesse Global continues strong sales of its Nevo energy drink

When Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis founded Jeunesse Global out of the garage of their Florida home back in 2009, they thought they would be starting a simple hobby business to keep them occupied throughout the idle hours of retirement. But the Florida snowbirds had no idea that the company would prove to be the biggest hit of their entire business careers. And for a couple that became millionaires by the age of 30, that was saying quite a lot.

The truth is that Jeunesse Global was never intended to be a way for Ray and Lewis to get rich; they already had all of the money they could ever hope to spend. Instead, it was founded on the principle of spreading viable economic opportunities across the globe while also creating some of the most groundbreaking products that the health and beauty world had ever seen. In this mission, Ray and Lewis quickly found themselves more successful than even they could have ever dreamed.

Word of the company’s and great products began spreading across the globe like wildfire. With over six ways to earn serious money, Jeunesse distributorships virtually sold themselves, as the company’s many successful distributors were walking advertisements for how powerful the business plan was.

On the product side, no one in the world has more quickly brought to market more revolutionary health and beauty products than Jeunesse. One example of the company’s ability to innovate to the point of disrupting entire markets is its Nevo energy drink. Nevo may look similar to other energy drinks, but it is formulated from all-natural ingredients. This not only gives the drink a great taste, which many users liken to drinking sparkling fresh-squeezed fruit juice, but it also gives Nevo a clean, uniform energy-boost that doesn’t leave users jittery and crashed out after an hour.

Nevo comes in four great-tasting flavors. These include peach mango, lemon ginger, mixed berry and acai grape. Like all Jeunesse Global products, Nevo is only available through authorized Jeunesse Global distributors. For more information on Nevo or how to buy Jeunesse Global products, please visit the company’s website.

How OSI Food Solutions is making waves in Spain

Just when it seemed that the food processing titan OSI Food Solutions couldn’t get any bigger or conquer any more markets, they come out with yet another announcement. This time around their focus is on chicken expanding production to accommodate the upcoming expected demand.

In a press release on August 8th 2017, OSI Food Solutions announced that it had added a high capacity production line alongside its current facility in Toledo, Spain. The total investment cost 17 million euros and was completed earlier in the year. This change has increased production capacity from 12,000 tons of processed chicken per year to 24,000 tons annually. This represents a doubling of total capacity, all while requiring fewer labor hours per ton. This recent expansion brings the Toledo operation up to a total production capacity 45,000 combined tons of beef, pork and chicken.

What’s most impressive about this addition is the minimal impact it has on the total workforce of the Toldeo factory. The entire expansion project will add just 20 new jobs to the existing workforce of 140 people. The change represents a more than 33% increase in production capacity on a per-pound basis with a workforce increase of just 14%, making it one of the most efficient changes the plant has seen.

This boost to employment includes a new management known as the Product Development Manager. This new role will continue to serve the purpose of assisting clients in developing new products, as well as serving as a consultant on existing product offerings.

In keeping with this commitment to client-focused service, the expansion also includes a state-of-the-art project development kitchen. It is here that product development manager will work with professional chefs and their corporate customers to better enhance their existing product offerings as well as create their new ones.

With all are these improvements coming together it’s no surprise that OSI Food Solutions is able to double their production capacity even though projected demand for chicken products in Spain is only expected to grow by 6%. The company clearly has plans to help their clients take over new segments of the market. OSI plans to do this in the same fashion that they became the sole provider of beef products to McDonalds decades prior; by providing full-service consultation and support not only can they ensure more sales for the clients, but also a steady increase in demand for OSI’s services as well.

Southridge Capital Manager Stephen Hicks Reflects On Their Spectacular Acquisitions Of The Past And On Their Future

As the manager of Southridge Capital, there is not much that normally phases Stephen Hicks. With his level of experience, he has seen it all and done it all in the capital markets. However, there is no question that even he was excited about the recent developments regarding his company.

Besides the organic growth of the company, Stephen Hicks is literally ecstatic about the victorious acquisitions they continue to have. According to Newswire, one of the very first of these Southridge Capital acquisitions was the Double Alpha Group, which is a well-known quantitative hedge fund based in upstate New York. Although they purchased this hedge in 2006, Hicks was primarily excited about this acquisition because it gave his capital firm the opportunity to offer even more products to their existing and expanding investor base. Of course, the trick for Stephen Hicks and Southridge would be to find as many anomalies as possible to exploit to help their investors create as much new wealth as possible. Moreover, there are a few other factors that Double Alpha apart from other quantitative hedge funds:

  1. Experience.

The managers at Double Alpha had the experience to help investors receive the most bang for their buck, simply because of the fact that this hedge fund has been in existence since 1994 and they have had the same portfolio manager since 1997. Considering that hedge funds come and go all of the time, this is an eternity for the average life span of most of them.

  1. They were able to accommodate more risk tolerances.

Because of this early acquisition of Double Alpha, Hicks and his hedge fund were able to offer packages for individuals who were accustomed to a variety of different risks. He was able to diversify the portfolio for those who wanted medium risk and also include those who didn’t mind higher risks.

Why does this matter?

Of course, the dominant question many might have is, “Why does this matter? Why does something that happened over ten years ago make any different as to whether this is a good hedge fund or not?” The answer is simple: the difference between a stellar hedge fund and a poor or average one is that they are always improving. Even though this occurred ten years ago, it still shows the significance of this hedge fund and just how superior it truly is. For more details visit LinkedIn.
