Not only does OSI Industries still produce the finest beef, but the pork and poultry markets have been added to their menu. With the rest of the food pyramid mixed in, OSI Industries has become a complete and balanced meal provider to the world.

There really is no limit to what can be created with food these days, and the talented people at OSI are ever creating new tastes and new ways to deliver to the masses all around the globe. They’re taking orders now for whatever you have a hankerin’ for.

One of the most assertive bits in the interview that The Chainsmokers generously did lately is about how to be taken seriously as artists in EDM. The interview was a special feature about Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart and how they grew their band into something that would change EDM in the most revolutionary way possible. Until The Chainsmokers came, EDM is known to be just about trick beats, fun synths and luring and hard-to-miss bass music that people can dance to. In the interview, the story of the revolutionary way that Alex Pall changed the entire EDM game is rightfully given justice.
With regards to being taken seriously as an artist, Alex Pall shared that it’s both hard and yet also easy. It’s hard in the sense that there’s that pressure to hold off first releasing complete albums of one’s own music because the single track is still unknown to many listeners. Artists are held back. Artists have to be constrained by the commercial aspects of the music industry. In the case with Alex Pall and The Chainsmokers, this wasn’t necessary. But it’s easy because Pall thought that the best approach would be to just write the songs that they want to hear themselves and express what they wanted. This strategy paid off, as the band is most known right now for the songs they made that are meant for themselves. These songs include “Roses”, “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer”.
The EDM music is much more welcome to new styles today compared to years ago. And Alex Pall wants to take advantage of this trend. He wants to make sure that his music is more intimate now and will be trying out new styles that would push the frontiers of EDM as a craft. It is the intention of Pall and Taggart to be recognized as serious artists in the field of EDM, and they want to make their brand of music to be personalized, unlike their predecessors in the EDM niche, such as deadmau5. It’s about time that the music of EDM that’s mostly devoid of feelings, life and passion to change. It’s time for The Chainsmokers to take its place.

Some of the firms that announced the same were, KKR & Co., Apollo Global Management, Och-Ziff Capital Management Group, the Carlyle Group, Ares Management and the Oaktree Capital Group. These went public a year after Fortress. Blackstone Group had also gone public six months earlier. Fortress Investment Group has invested so much in its leadership. Lead by its three Chief Executive Officers; the firm has managed to have the best organizational leadership not only in the United States but also internationally. This aspect has seen the company receive numerous accolades and awards in the investment industry that are exclusively meant for the outstanding performers in the industry.
For instance, in both 2010 and 2011, the Institutional magazine named Fortress their “Credit-Focused Fund of the Year.” Later in 2012, the same magazine described Fortress Group as their “Discretionary Macro-Focused Hedge Fund of the Year.” In 2014, HFMWeek, one chief publication in the investment management industry named Fortress their “Management Firm of the Year.” In the same year, the institutional magazine also called the group the “Hedge Fund Manager of the Year.” All this is a clear indication of the kind of effective leadership that prevails in the firm.
