Innovators are making it easier and easier to make social connections without necessarily having to attend events or have those weird first-time conversations with strangers in the streets. Several sited have been developed where people can connect and interact, get to know each other well and get done with introductions and formalities before they come into contacts. From apps like tinder which is a dating app to Bumble BFF which is a site for finding friends and recently BumbleBizz which is a dating app of its own kind. The difference between BumbleBizz and other dating apps is that it is women-focused. Other than these apps being about connecting with other people either as friends or could-be lovers, these apps also have a person in common who either founded or co-founded them, Whitney Wolfe.
Whitney Wolfe is 29-year-old American mogul and business executive. She majored in International Studies at the Southern Methodist University. Her entrepreneurial ventures began while she was still studying at the university. Whenever she saw a business opportunity of any kind, she made her move. Her first self-started company was a bamboo selling company that she established at a time when the BP oil spill scandal happened, and there was the need for the product in the affected areas. At the young age of 19, she partnered with a celebrity stylist to establish a non- profit organization, Help Us Project which garnered a lot of publicity. This was the beginning of a bright career for Wolfe.
In 2012, Whitney Wolfe joined tinder and helped in creating the dating app. She became the vice president of the marketing department at Tinder. She performed tremendously in her tasks as she made it possible for Tinder to reach users like the Universities and college students. Upon leaving Tinder, she founded Bumble which hosts the apps Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF. The company has more than twenty million subscribed users, and the apps are taking the market by storm. Bumble is known for promoting feminism even with its products like BumbleBizz which majorly focuses on giving the women power in dating.
At a very young age, Whitney Wolfe has achieved tremendous success, receiving multiple awards and garnering herself a two hundred and fifty net worth. She has currently adopted the last name Herd with the marriage to Mr. Michael Herd.
Conor Lamb is going to prove absolutely essential to the coming blue wave this year. His possible victory in Pennsylvania will give Democrats a sign of what might come and how to prepare. The 18th district of Pennsylvania is going to be a closely watched race with implications across the state. The press is already on this race slated for March and the anticipation is driving large amounts of interest into the state. How things will go in the coming days is going to say a lot. Lamb has a battle ahead but it’s going to be an important one to win.
The March special election has some parallels with the special election of last December. In that election we saw Republicans with high expectations of victory see their chances go down the drain as Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore. His success isn’t something to scoff at or chalk up to a fluke. It represents the fact that the Trump movement has peaked and we are already seeing it fade away. If fades away fast enough we may very well see 2018 spell an entirely different moment for politics in America. People are getting tired of what they’re being offered by the right and they want to see big money leave politics.
We don’t need to guess to understand how the special election is going to change things. It has already scared Republicans by showing that people have a desire to see something besides what they want to offer. The Democrats are the ones with the ability to change things and the ability to give people what they are looking for. End Citizens United is hoping to turn this year into a major comeback for the fight against big money in politics. They just need to make sure that we have fully embraced what they are going to be offering the voters today.
Pennsylvania played a key role in the election of Donald Trump. That makes Conor Lamb all the more important. He is going to play a key role in the future of politics in this country by deciding exactly what will happen in the 18th district of Pennsylvania. This district was a strong district for Trump two years ago, but the Democrats currently believe they have a chance to take it back with the right plan. Lamb has everything it takes to go and fight the good fight, but there needs to be a PAC behind him to make sure it goes according to plan.
End Citizens United is the perfect fit for this race. They understand what will be needed better than anyone else and they are willing to support him the entire way. Conor Lamb is standing up against the big money machines in politics in order to win this race. He knows that the people of that district are tired of having their interests ignored while those of corporations take precedent. In order to make sure this happens he wants to do everything he can to make things better for those he has been elected to represent in the 18th district.
The special election is going to serve as a litmus test to how well Democrats will do in the November midterms. If they emerge from this race victors it’s going to certainly show that Democrats have what it takes to emerge as the victors in the upcoming races. The only way to keep things going is to find a way to make sure that people come out to vote and that they realize he is the one that will take things back to how they should be. The big money influence is very strong but it isn’t going to be the final say so out there.
End Citizens United has been working hard to make sure that people who can help get big money out of politics are elected to office. There is a change coming in Washington and we’re going to finally see an end to so much of this with the November midterms. All that needs to happen is for people to realize the impact they can have and for politicians to keep their promise. Conor Lamb is being endorsed because he is a perfect example of all of this at work with his current campaign.
The special election in #PA18 is shaping up to be a showdown between the grassroots and corporate special interests. Proud to support Conor Lamb!

The obesity rate in the US, is one of the biggest reasons Philadelphia implemented a tax on soda. The reality is that nearly 70 percent of American adults are overweight. About 35 percent of the US population is obese. These statistics are also starting to have an affect on children as young as three years old.
The result is higher healthcare costs to treat the effects of this unhealthy trend. Many states are now charging higher taxes on things like junk food and soda. Philadelphia is doing this to soft drinks, charging a higher tax in an effort to encourage residents to purchase cheaper, healthier options.
The city of Philadelphia was the first in US to charge an extra tax on soda. The higher tax began at the start of 2017. The tax is 1.5 cents per ounce of soda purchased.
Philadelphia had good intentions on implementing the tax, but there have been some unexpected outcomes from it. The tax has an impact on low income residents of Philadelphia. Someone with a higher income has no problem paying the extra tax or driving out of the city to avoid it. Low income families do not have these options.
The extra tax on soda is also affecting local small businesses or mom and pop stores. These small stores already have to compete with bigger stores with higher advertising budgets, and now they are seeing a decrease in revenue due to the soda tax. There are several effects feom this extra tax. The soda companies are taking a stand against the city of Philadelphia, and the case is making its way to the Supreme Court.

In 1938, Mexico nationalized its oil industry, creating a monopoly for the state-run company, Petroleos Mexicanos or Pemex.
The Mexican government has decided to open up the country’s oil reserves to exploration and drilling by private companies. Talos Energy is one of the pioneering companies meeting the challenge.
Talos Energy formed a joint venture with Premier Oil Plc (based in London) and Sierra Oil & Gas (based in Mexico) for the Zama-1 well. It’s in the Sureste Basin which is offshore from the state of Tabasco. Experts estimate Zama-1 holds from 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil. Drilling began on May 21. They expect to finish in 90 days. According to Edison Investment Research, based on the structure of the Sureste Basin, the offshore drilling there has a geologically high probability of success.
The joint venture won the right to drill Zama-1 in 2015 in the first round of bidding. Mexico passed its Constitutional Energy Reforms in 2013 to allow foreign energy companies into the company for the first time since 1938.
For Tim Duncan, Talos Energy represents a triumph of patience and hard work. During the 2008 financial crisis he had to return capital to the bank. He retained just enough to work the most lucrative energy opportunities. By 2011 he doubled Phoenix Exploration in size. Then he sold it to Apache Corporation.
Tim Duncan and partners started Talos Energy in 2012 with $600 million from previous investors Apollo Management and Riverstone Holdings. Based in Houston, they have 60 geoscientists and other employees at headquarters and the same number operating in the field along the Gulf Coast.
WorkplaceDynamics named Talos Energy as the best small business to work for because they are sharing equity with their employees. This gives everyone an incentive to work hard, because it’s their company too. Talos Energy is not big enough to patch the compensation the large oil and energy companies pay, so they are allowing employees to share in the company’s profits as it grows.
