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.

OSI Group, an American-based wholesaler of foods, has come a very long way since its birth. The company has certainly evolved with the times while many of its closest competitors have become a relic. Technological innovation and client relations has always been a part of the company’s foundation. This foundation was laid in place back in the 1900s. Opportunities for growth has also been ceased at just the right moments and maybe a little bit of luck has worked its magic to help the company prosper. This is one of the largest privately held companies in the US. OSI Group has skills and the capabilities to produce top-of-the-line products. Its food development capabilities, include:
- Product Ideation
- Sensory Analysis
- Cost Reduction
- New Product Development
- Shelf Life Studies
- And more
OSI Group was actually named Otto & Sons back in the day because it was a family-owned business. Otto Kolschowski operated the business with his two sons Arthur and Harry. In the early stages, this company specialized in the selling of fresh meats. One of its biggest attributes was that the business provided high-quality services for the immediate area. The company served its community very well, which helped to play a role in its growth. Arthur and Harry Kolschowski made a deal with Ray Kroc, McDoanld’s former-CEO. This deal allowed Otto & Sons to become the hamburger chain’s first major supplier of meats. This strong bond would continue to this very day, but the OSI also serves Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC and Subway.
As you can see, OSI Group has seen it all and has done it all, especially when it comes to this field of work. This only scratches the surface of what it has achieved, but you should have a much better perspective of how far this small meat market has come throughout the decades.

Dr. Saad Saad is the inventor of two medical inventions that are making the job of the surgeon easier and the operation less invasive and safer for the patient. He created the catheter with integral electromagnetic location identification device and also greatly improved the function of the endoscope.
He has quite the interesting history. He has served as a pediatric surgeon for the Royal Saudi family for almost five years with his family. He went on to relocate to the United States where he continued to perform surgical procedures. Dr. Saad Saad was born in Palestine, and despite his humble upbringing he excelled in his studies and became a very successful pediatric surgeon as well.
Endoscopes tend to get cloudy once indside the patient’s body and makes it very difficult for the surgeon to see clearly. Dr. Saad created a way to improve the function of this very important tool by creating an anti-fog port that will prevent the lens from fogging up. This reduced the time that a surgical procedure will take substantially since it is no longer necessary to readjust the endoscope to get a better view inside the patinet’s body. This invention is relatively inexpensive to manufacture and is very practical, and he uses it himself.
His catheter invention has yet to be implemented throughout the world, and it is somewhat difficult to manufacture. There is a medical company that is interested in his device though, and it may not be long before it is widely used by doctors in the future.
He also has the patents for both of his inventions. He is an experienced pediatric surgeon who has conducted countless surgeries an has saved numerous lives. He is always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the way that surgeries are conducted, and he has done a lot of good with his talents.
Dr. Saad Saad believes in the necessity of invention. Technology is constantly changing, and his inventions are a reflection that as time and technology progress so must the surgical procedures in the medical field as well. He has been practicing for over 40 years and has been on four Medical Missions within the United States as well as eight Medical Missions to Jerusalem and the West Bank part of the world.
He feels that everyone should be entitled to medical care despite their heritage, financial situation or where they live. He began his medical career back in the 1980s and so much has changed since then, but he has learned to adapt and change with the times. This is one of the reasons why he is innovative and has created new instruments to help improve the way that surgeries are performed.
